Are you looking for journal prompts to ignite healing? You’ve come to the right place!

Recently, I’ve been asked a lot about journaling. I’m not new when it comes to journal exercises, some I found online and others were given to me by mentors to help me break through cycles, and patterns or even to get clear on my beliefs. I’ve also written my own prompts, to help me dive deeper.

And while journaling always seems to make it’s way into conversations, I’ve specifically been asked about healing through journaling.

I thought today, I’d share with you 5 of my favorite journal prompts that you can use to ignite healing. So grab a pen and paper, or better yet your journal, and write these down as I go through them.

Journal Prompts to Ignite Healing #1:

“Write the words you need to hear right now.”

This may seem really basic, but oftentimes we turn to others to lift us up. Think of yourself as your own best friend, what would you tell your best friend? What would she or he need to hear at this moment? Those are often the words you need to tell yourself.

I have used this prompt multiple times and often re-read those words in ne

Journal Prompts to Ignite Healing #2:

“The place I feel most loved and safe is…”

Knowing a physical place that makes you comfortable, can often be where you need to go when you’re in a place of healing. That place can be outside in nature, it can be your home,  it could be the couch at your therapist’s office, or it could be the gym or yoga mat.

I mean, it could even be the bathtub.

Bring this information about love and safety into your conscious mind, so you know where to go when you need to feel safe. You are worthy of feeling both love and safe, I hope you remember that!

Journal Prompts to Ignite Healing #3:

This going to take you a little deep into the mode of gratitude, lessons, and blessings.

This prompt is,” If it weren’t for _________ , I wouldn’t have learned ________ . “

That first blank is where you’ll list bad situations or experiences, and the second blank is where you’ll write in the lessons learned or any blessings that came from that situation. 

The purpose of this prompt is to help you remember that everything happens for a reason, but also that every second of every day, we have a choice. A choice to change our circumstances, a chance to make a better choice,

Journal Prompts to Ignite Healing #4:

The 4th prompt is pretty simple, so it feels right being sandwiched in between 3 and 5.

This prompt is simply, “Something I need to let go of is…”

this prompt is so important because we need to give ourselves permission to let go or outgrow things that no longer serve us. being mindful to that, is key. 

Journal Prompts to Ignite Healing #5:

I recommend doing this next when your mindset is more positive and you’re feeling more confident – but the prompt is:

“When I am in physical or emotional pain, the best thing I can do for myself is…” 

Now, of course, I say to do this when you’re not in physical or emotional pain because your answers are going to differ when you complete this while in higher vibrational energy such as happiness vs. lower vibrational energy such as sadness.
