Unlock Your Inner Wisdom: 5 Soulful Morning Pages Journal Prompts to Start Your Day

Start your day connected to your soul with these 5 morning pages journal prompts.

You don’t have to have a complicated two-hour morning routine to start your day off right. You don't even have to have a morning routine if it doesn't feel right for you.

But, if you want to find a journaling practice that helps you unlock your inner wisdom and connect with your soul. Then, you need to include these 5 morning pages journal prompts to help you:

  • Clear your mind

  • Nourish your soul

  • Tap into your heart's desire

You're not alone if you're asking, “What are morning pages?” and “What do I write in my morning pages journal?”

Here's what you need to know

What are morning pages?

Morning pages is a process created by Julia Cameron. Most notably, she offers this practice in her book, The Artist Way.

Morning pages are just three handwritten pages done first thing in the morning.

That's it. All you do is write. For. Three. Pages.

Think you won't know what to write? Think again.

Most days, my morning pages are to-do lists run amuck, incoherent, fragmented thoughts, anger, frustration, stream of consciousness and a crapload of worries.

But every once in a while, usually on the final page, once my mind has emptied, my soul comes through and speaks.

And that's where the magic happens.

Morning pages have opened the door to magical, inner wisdom that's helped me create the breathwork quiz, build the Conscious Breath Connection Course, summon the courage to leave my full-time job as an office manager, and ultimately open the doors to the Breathe Connect Thrive Studio.

Most importantly, morning pages give you space to process. It's especially helped me grieve and process my mother's recent death.

You actually don’t even have to think in morning pages to get insights.

You don't even have to write legibly to "do morning pages right."

Because at the end of the day, all that matters is that you got it all out so you could make space to listen to and honor your beautiful soul.

Now you know what morning pages are. If you're still stuck and unsure what to write, here are some morning page journal prompts to start your day connected to your soul.

5 morning pages journal prompts to unlock your inner wisdom and start your day connected to your soul

​If you've had a Breathwork or Restorative Yoga session with me recently, I've most likely had you end your session by placing your hands over your heart and saying the words, "Thank you, thank you, thank you."

Lately, in my morning pages practice, along with my stream of consciousness, plans for the day, emotional processing, worries, and complaints, I've also been including these morning pages journal prompts.

1. What are you thankful for? (5 thank yous)

What I love most about using this simple journal prompt is that you can thank yourself, someone else, or something else, or even send a thank you to a future event! It hits all points of gratitude, thankfulness and shifts in vibration.

Mine thank yous under this journal prompt kinda go something like this:

  1. Thank you for getting out of bed this morning; I know it wasn't easy.

  2. Thank you, past self, for choosing such a wonderful place to call home.

  3. Thank you, heart, for beating and keeping me alive today.

  4. Thank you for all the smiles I'll get to see today.

  5. Thank you for the peace and ease I'll feel in my soul today.

And on it goes; after the fifth one, I often get lost in gratitude and have about five more thank yous spilling out onto the page. But it's an all-encompassing gratitude that makes space for the rest of my morning pages process.

2. What's on your to-do list, and how could you move the needle? (5 needle-movers)

This one's pretty self-explanatory, And I kinda already do this when I'm spilling my guts on the first couple of pages.

But it's helpful to recap the things on your to-do list and notice how they can help you move the needle in your goals, desires, and dreams.

I like to make these small, detailed, actionable steps I can take.

If you're anything like me, my inner critic really loves to come out after I start talking (writing) about my goals, desires, and dreams.

So creating bite-sized, doable items helps build courage and reduces overwhelm when it comes to taking action towards your goals, desires, and dreams.

3. What things beyond your control can you surrender worry over just for today? (5 offer ups)

You might even rename this the bless and release journal prompt. I borrowed the term "offer up' from Tosha Silver. In an interview, Tosha said:

"The more everything is offered to the divine, the more you’re actually inviting that Source to do the acting through you."

What are you holding onto that is beyond your control?

All of that worry, fear, anger, anxiety, or control over things that are beyond our reach can cause us suffering, which is why I really like this prompt after the needle-movers prompt.

Some things I can control. Like the what and why I'd like to take action toward my dreams. However, the how and when? Often, that's not up to me.

So, I offer it up to the divine in my morning pages.

  • People I love that don't, won't, or can't love me back? I offer it up to the divine.

  • Fear about loved ones' health, safety, and security after I've done all I can do to help?  I offer it up to the divine.

  • Worries about being successful in something I worked so hard to complete? I offer it up to the divine.

  • Control over the thing I want and the fear that it might never materialize?  I offer it up to the divine.

4. What can you keep your soul/heart open to today? (5 things I'm keeping my soul/heart open to)

After offering things up, I'm ready to open my heart or soul! For me, this is a moment of tapping into my soul and letting my soul speak about what I'd like to experience today.

The other day, I wrote:

  • Today, I'm keeping my soul open to synchronicity.

  • Today, I'm keeping my soul open to joyful moments of laughter.

  • Today, I'm keeping my soul open to moments of magical, awe-inspiring beauty.

  • Today, I'm keeping my soul open to clients I can easily help who feel a deep resonance and sense of comfort from our interaction.

  • Today, I'm keeping my soul open to love, compassion, grace, and understanding.

And on and on it goes.

5. What hopes, wishes, dreams, or desires would you like to communicate with Source? (5 prayers)

This prayer prompt actually surprised me. Prayer hasn't honestly been my go-to in the last decade.

But over the last couple of years, the idea of talking to Source through prayer has really filled me with comfort, ease, and faith.

You see, I got the idea for the morning pages prompts I shared in this blog from Andrew Huberman.

Well kinda...

While Andrew Huberman suggested a brief science-based protocol that combines goal setting, motivation, and emotional health, I needed something a bit more based on thankfulness, surrender, and soul connection.

I think it's important to take ideas, protocols, or practices and find a way to make them your own. After all, you will always be the best authority in your life.

So, I took Andrew Huberman's protocol and changed it to suit my soul's needs.

And this final prompt of ending my morning pages process with communicating my prayers, hopes, wishes, dreams, or desires with Source really filled me with joy and peace.

I hope it does the same for you!
