Don’t treat these questions like “homework” or try to answer every single one. Instead, make time to meditate on the list and then pick the one question that speaks to you the most. The goal is to figure out which question is “yours.” Which question captures the call of your inner voice? Which one contains “your work”? What question is trying to get you to notice or acknowledge it? It may even help to read this list to a friend or loved one and ask them which question they think is yours, and more connection is something we all need right now!
Who first helped you to heal without trying to fix you?
What is something you know now about healing that you didn’t know when you were younger?
Are you still allowing an old story to dictate who you are?
Is it time for you to trust people again?
Do you need to restore your relationship to play?
Have you been running on empty for so long that you no longer notice?
Is your body breaking down due to overwhelm or exhaustion? Or is it simply trying to tell you that things aren’t sustainable as they are?
What might your life look like with that negative person no longer in it?
Has keeping a secret become too painful?
Are you trying to forget something that healing needs you to remember?
Do you need to be reminded that you made a mistake, and that you are *not* a mistake?
Is it possible to see pain as an invitation not just an enemy?
What is your favourite healing story? What gift has the story offered to your life today?
