One of the best things you can do to strengthen your psychic ability is to keep a psychic journal. This is where you will take down insights you get, intuitions that you experience, as well as other spiritual occurrences. Here are some reasons why psychic journals are powerful.
They help you to remember important insights. There is so much that we have to remember from day to day that it is easy to forget about running into that person that gave you bad vibes or having the feeling that a certain person was going to change your life.
They give you confidence. Psychic journals are also powerful because they can be a boost in helping you to learn to trust your intuition. How often do you shrug off insights that you have or intuitions that you get? By writing these down in a psychic journal, you can see how often your messages are accurate and you will develop trust in your own psychic abilities.
They let you track what works and what doesn’t. As you work with your psychic abilities, you’ll notice that certain things work for you. For example, you may find that you are more intuitive during the full moon. Or perhaps you’ll find that certain crystals bring you clarity and help you to focus your psychic energies. If you do magical rituals such as candle magic, you can also track what happens when you do those things.
How to set up a psychic journal
Whenever I start a journal, I look for one that inspires me. It’s important that I feel drawn to my journal because then I’m more likely to write in it. However, you can use any type of notebook. You might even get a plain notebook and decorate the cover yourself to develop a stronger connection with it.

Since there are many different types of information that you will be collecting, it’s a good idea to find a notebook that has dividers. You can come up with your own categories, but here are a few that you might want to keep information on:
Dreams: In this section of the journal, write down whatever you remember of your dreams from the night before. It’s a good idea to keep this by your bed and write your dreams down immediately even if you only remember a small portion. The longer you wait, the more likely you will forget some or all of the details. As you write, you might remember more.
Intuitions: Do you have a feeling that someone has bad intentions toward you? Do you have a feeling that your significant other is cheating? This is the section of the journal where you write down any intuitions that you have. If you discover at a later time that you were right, update the entry so you can record your psychic hits.
Synchronicities: Did you run into the same person three times this week? Did you hear someone say something only to hear that phrase repeated again by someone else? Did an animal cross your path? Whenever the Universe gives you signs or symbols, record them. You’ll begin to notice patterns in your life and you’ll discover that every sign or synchronicity is designed to give you insight to help you move forward.
Rituals: If you do metaphysical rituals, such as full moon candle magic or work with a pendulum, you’ll want to record what you’re doing here. Maybe you wear certain crystals. This would be the part of the journal where you note how the crystals made you feel and whether they did what you intended them to do.
Feelings: You can also keep a section of the psychic journal to record your day-to-day feelings. This would be similar to a regular journal. You may find that your feelings also give you insight into how your intuition works.
Regardless of what categories you keep in your psychic journal, it’s important that you review what you wrote regularly. You have a wealth of information in that journal if you diligently write in it. Use that to your advantage.
