We're going to do a guided reflection activity to help you bring the stories of yourself to the surface, and make a conscious decision about whether you agree with them and want to keep telling yourself these stories about you, or whether you want to say goodbye to these portraits of yourself, and create a new one.
There's no right or wrong answer - the purpose is to help make these narratives about yourself conscious - bring them in front of your eyes so you can see them, instead of just having them running on automatic in the background. That way, you can make an actual choice about whether or not you want to keep, edit, or toss them.
These 30 Journal Prompts give you a provocative and intriguing, yet simple question to write about each day of the month for October, and can be used throughout October, and/or as a way to create your own Halloween ritual, as the activity for a Halloween party, or a practice to share with friends around the holiday.
Halloween, at its heart, is about one thing: the thinning of the veil between this world, and the “beyond.” As we dissolve the boundary between our everyday reality and the mystical other-world that is ever-present but to which we are normally blind, we are able to connect more easily with spirit. Mischief makers come and tinker in our world. We share stories of the dead to honor and connect with them.
Fall is a time of letting go, reflecting, slowing down, and indulging your five senses with comforting and beautiful smells, tastes, sights, and sounds. These 30 Journal Prompts give you a provocative and intriguing, yet simple question to write about each day of the month.
