One of the most helpful tools one can use on their spiritual path is a Spiritual Diary.
Simply, it is a discipline of writing down your meditation experiences and feelings of that day.
You can choose your diary in whatever form you like, whether it’s your computer or tablet or a book. But personally I feel, a really beautiful book, that is beautiful with a good quality paper that the pen glides on, is worth the investment. I love feeling the beautiful binding and the smell of fresh paper - the clean page before me.
I have kept my spiritual diaries through the years, and it's extraordinary to have them to go back through. The perceptions and feelings that I forgot about amaze me. Especially as I read through my accounts of my spiritual experiences - it reminds me how long I've been practising for and how much I have learnt. It gives me confidence and strength to keep going. And it will do the same for you.

Salutations to the Divine direction that is guiding me.
I suggest you find the best way for you to keep your spiritual diary - either on your computer or iPad or go buy a gorgeous book to write in. Keep it daily.
It will help you see how far you have come and give you strength on the days you need it to keep going.
