Journaling Prompts- The Perfect Addition to Your Meditative Art Experience

Journaling Prompts- The Perfect Addition to Your Meditative Art Experience

Journaling and therapeutic art are best friends when it comes to self-expression, healing, and personal growth. Journaling provides a safe space for you to explore thoughts, feelings, and experiences, while therapeutic art can turn your thoughts into a visual story . By combining these practices, you can deepen your understanding of inner self, you can process those complex, sometimes scary emotions, and cultivate a greater sense of self-awareness. Journaling paired with therapeutic art also promotes relaxation, reduces stress and anxiety, and enhances overall mental health and well-being. Through this powerful combination, you can harness the transformative power of creativity to cultivate a deeper sense of inner peace and personal growth.

Here are some journaling prompts for you to use with Breathe People’s Meditative Art Kits. You can choose to journal before painting, during breaks, or after completing the art process. I personally like to use the journaling prompts when I feel I’m getting into my head with the painting process. Switching from a brush to a pen helps me to process what I’m feeling and sometimes helps me come to new realizations.

It's important to note that there is no limit to how much or how long you write in your journal. You should do what feels right for you, and allow your thoughts and feelings to flow freely onto the page. So take your time, and trust in the power of the journaling process to guide you towards greater self-awareness and understanding.


How did you feel before starting your meditative art practice? What emotions or thoughts were present in your mind? Reflect on how these emotions or thoughts may have influenced your creative process.

  1. What intention did you hold for your creative process, and how did it manifest throughout your artistic experience?

  2. What did you learn/are you learning about yourself during the creative process? Did you discover any new insights or perspectives about your life, relationships, or values?

  3. Have you felt any struggle with the painting process? How might that parallel some beliefs/behaviors in your personal life?

  4. How did you feel after completing your meditative art practice? Did you experience any sense of accomplishment, peace, or joy? Reflect on why these emotions arose and how they may influence your mood and mindset going forward.

  5. What could you do differently in your next meditative art practice to further deepen your connection to your emotions and creative process?
