    Journaling For Self-Discovery

    Journaling is a powerful tool in your journey of self-discovery, personal growth, and creating the life that you truly love.

    For the past several years, I’ve been journaling for 30 minutes every morning as soon as I wake up. I do this even before eating breakfast, working out, checking social media, or meditating.

    This practice has served me in more ways than I ever could’ve imagined. I’ve found that when I take 30 minutes to focus solely on my inner world, I forge a deeper connection with my most authentic self.

    Additionally, it helps me to get any thoughts, worries, or heavy emotions out of my body and onto the blank page in front of me. By the end of my journaling sessions, I always feel lighter and more clear-headed as I set out to embrace the opportunities and experiences of the new day ahead.

    Your own journaling practice should be tailored to your unique preferences and needs. You might journal for ten minutes a day or a whole hour. You might like early mornings, or maybe you like to journal at night to help you unwind from your day.

    There are no rules to journaling; do what feels best to you.

    If I can give you one piece of advice, though, it would be to make your journaling practice a safe place from self-judgment or self-criticism.

    This means you’re free to write down whatever you need to without your inner critic telling you it’s wrong to think or feel a certain way.

    In fact, if you’re seeking meaningful self-discovery, the best thing you can do is to get curious.

    For instance, let’s say you’re journaling about the day you had yesterday, and you realize you didn’t react to a situation as well as you would’ve liked to. Instead of criticizing yourself, allow yourself to explore your reaction with non-judgmental awareness.

    Keep probing deeper to get to the root of your own thoughts, actions, feelings, and beliefs.

    Below, you’ll find 50 journal prompts for self-discovery, personal growth, and exploring your inner self. You can choose to spend as much or as little time on each prompt as you’d like, and you can also skip around to complete them in any order you’d prefer.

    And be sure to keep scrolling to the end of the post, where I link to seven of my favorite guided journals for self-discovery. Though each journal is uniquely different, each one will powerfully guide you in your personal growth journey and give you everything you need to explore your own inner world.

    Spiritual Growth

    Growing up, I never would’ve considered myself a spiritual person.

    I think I always mostly believed in a higher power, but I always considered this higher power to exist outside of myself. To be completely honest, I often imagined this higher power to be this enormous being who was watching me from the sky, judging and criticizing my every thought and action.

    I believed this higher power had extraordinary expectations for me to be perfect, and I was already so hard on myself all the time – bearing the weight of all those expectations felt like carrying a mountain on my shoulders. In my mind, no matter what I did, it’d never be enough.

    So it became much easier for me to pretend this higher being didn’t exist at all.

    It was just me and myself, I decided. I’d have to figure things out on my own. And that was okay. I didn’t need anyone else. I remember when I was younger, I once asked my mom if she thought I was a leader or a follower.

    “Neither,” she responded. “You don’t feel the need to lead, but you don’t follow either. You’re just your own person.”

    I loved this identity. My own person. Even though I don’t think it was what she meant, I took it to mean that I didn’t need other people at all. Even when things were difficult, I could always make it on my own.

    It took many years of lessons and hardship to realize that trying to be a solely independent person who never relied on anyone else for anything wasn’t really the path I wanted to be on. That I truly and deeply loved people. That I needed them.

    And that I needed something greater than me to believe in. That I needed a higher power: God, the Universe, Source, Love, All That Is – whatever name feels best to you.

    My life changed in the most extraordinary ways when I released my grip on the reins and surrendered control to the Universe. When I began to lean into divine flow. When I trusted the pull of my heart guiding me forward, even when it didn’t make sense.

    And this relationship is still growing. Still expanding. It transforms every day. The more I surrender, let go, and trust, the more miraculous my life becomes. I was so worried about control for so long, yet it was releasing this control that brought me the true peace I’d been searching for my entire life.

    Below, you’ll find 30 journal prompts for spiritual growth to help you on your own spiritual journey. These questions focus both on your relationship with your true self as well as your relationship with a higher power. You can also download your copy of these free printable journal prompts at the bottom of this post.

    Before you begin responding to any of these journal prompts, I want you to make a promise to yourself to be kind and compassionate with yourself no matter what comes up. Allow yourself the grace of imperfection. Embrace your past, as every experience you’ve encountered has brought you here today.

    And also, what I believed when I was little? About a higher power sitting in the sky watching and criticizing your every move? It isn’t true. We all have different, unique relationships with the Universe, but for all of us, this is true:

    The Universe has never criticized or condemned you. The Universe has never judged you for your thoughts or actions. The Universe is love. The Universe knows only love. And the Universe only feels perfect, unconditional love for you.

    What Is Shadow Work?

    We all have parts of ourselves that we keep hidden – from others, and often, from ourselves, too.

    These are the aspects of our inner beings that we suppress, neglect, and exile to a deep corner hidden inside ourselves where no one can access.

    Often, we label these parts of ourselves as wrong.

    This label may come from childhood, when you were told by an adult that something you did or said was bad. Maybe you put yourself out there, wanting to impress an adult, and they reacted in a way that you perceived as negatively. In turn, this caused you to feel shame and embarrassment.

    And no longer wanting to ever feel that depth of pain again, you locked away this part of you so that nobody will ever be able to cut you so deeply ever again.

    We go to great lengths to protect ourselves. We hide parts of ourselves that we deem as being unflattering. We don’t like to expose our shadows out of fear of being judged, ridiculed, and abandoned.

    But the truth is, we all have a darker side within us. We all experience greed, envy, selfishness, and other feelings we deem as negative.

    Shadow work is the practice of gently acknowledging and bringing these hidden parts of yourself back to the surface. Instead of viewing yourself as a hundred different puzzle pieces, some lost and hidden, you see that you’re the whole puzzle. It’s embracing your wholeness – the entirety of who you are. The light. The dark. The difficult and vulnerable. All of it.

    Because all parts of you are worthy of your own love and attention.

    Shadow work isn’t easy, though, and I definitely recommend preparing yourself fully before diving straight in. Scott Jeffrey offers a great guide to shadow work here. Make sure you’re in a stable place mentally, emotionally, and spiritually before you begin working through these shadow work journal prompts.

    Shadow Work Journal Prompts

    Before we get to the journal prompts, I want to make an important note on how to approach your journaling session.

    Shadow work can trigger a lot of feelings and thoughts within. And it can be really, really easy to be hard on yourself. Before you begin answering any of these questions, make a promise to yourself to refrain from self-criticism. The path to healing isn’t paved in self-judgment but in deep and profound self-compassion.

    If it helps, you can write on the top of your paper, “I will be kind to myself today.”

    Know that this really, truly isn’t about being perfect. It’s about acknowledging all parts of yourself, including the parts that you may neglect and bury deep within. You don’t have to do anything immediately to change or heal those parts of you.

    Right now, just showing those parts of yourself that you see them and they’re not alone is enough.

    Manifestation Journal Examples: Scripting, 369 & More

    In this article, learn about several practices for manifesting in a journal, including scripting, the 369 method, and more. Plus, get manifestation journal examples for each method to show you exactly what you need to do to begin manifesting your dreams.

    manifestation journal examples
    Pin this for later! Manifestation Journal Examples: Scripting, 369 & More

    How To Start A Manifestation Journal

    One of the most common questions I receive is what the best method is for manifesting in a journal. Should you only stick to scripting? Does the 369 Method really work? What about the 55×5 Manifestation Method?

    Here’s my answer:

    There is no “best” method for manifesting in a journal. Like most things, what’s truly best is whatever feels right to you. I personally love scripting, and I try to do a scripting exercise at least once a week. But if you try scripting and end up hating it? That’s completely okay! Keep trying different methods to see what feels best for you.

    Below, I detail multiple manifestation methods and provide you with manifestation journal examples for each practice. You’ll get an explanation of what each method is, and then you’ll find an example for deeper clarity. If you haven’t tried any of these methods before, I definitely recommend trying all of them out at least once to see what you like best. If you like them all, you can incorporate each of them into your journaling practice. But if one or two resonate more than the others? Like I said, that’s totally okay.

    I also recommend checking out this article on using manifesting oil, as I find it helpful to add a drop of oil to my journal pages for some extra manifesting magic. You might also be interesting in learning more about the pillow method, which is a practice in which you place your journal pages under your pillow for a period of about 7 to 10 days. (All of these practices have worked for me, and they continue to be a part of daily manifesting routine!)

    And finally, if you want to expand your manifestation practice, I definitely encourage you to check out 30 Perfect Days, a digital manifestation journal available in my online shop. Each day, you’ll receive a unique scripting prompt that will help you to live as if you already have your dreams and desires right now. Additionally, you’ll find space for daily gratitude, acknowledging the miracles that appear in your everyday world, uplifting affirmations, and more. The journal comes with editable text fields so you can choose to either type directly into the journal (using your laptop, phone, or tablet) or print and hand write. Click here to learn more!

    Jump ahead to any of the manifestation journal examples below:

    Manifestation Journal Examples

    Scripting Examples

    Scripting is the practice of writing about your dreams and desires in story-like form, as if you already possess everything you want to manifest right now. For instance, if you want to manifest your dream job or perfect partner, you’d write about a day in your life as if you already have your dream job or perfect partner at this current moment. If you want to manifest one million dollars, you’d describe the joy and excitement of already having a million dollars in your bank account. In your script, you’ll describe your life using all of your senses: sight, sound, smell, touch, and taste. You’ll also write about your internal feelings, such as the joy and gratitude you feel for having what you desire in your current reality.

    The key to unlocking the magic of scripting is to truly feel the positive emotions of already having everything you desire. For instance, if your goal is to manifest a million dollars, allow yourself to feel financially prosperous now. Feel abundant. Feel free. Feel joyful. Feel sincere gratitude. Allow yourself to feel it all. Carry these positive emotions with you throughout the day.

    Below is a scripting example for your manifestation journal. This example is written from the perspective of someone imagining that they have their dream life now. They’re writing about a day in their dream life as if they’re looking back on their day, writing about all the magic they experienced.

    Dear Universe,

    Today was truly an extraordinary day. When I woke up, I was greeted with warm rays of sunshine brushing against my cheeks. It felt like a gentle, loving message from the Universe welcoming me to this bright new day. After a restful night of sleep, I felt energized and ready to greet the day ahead. Careful not to wake up my love sleeping next to me, I awoke and headed to the kitchen, where a fresh pot of coffee waited for me. I spent the first hour of my morning journaling and meditating. Then, I went for a beautiful walk in the foothills behind my home. I don’t think I’ve ever felt more calm and at peace. I knew in every cell of my body that everything was working out perfectly for me, just as it always does.

    I spent my day doing what I love. I connected with beautiful souls and offered meaningful help to others. I’m still in awe that this life is really mine. An old client of mine sent me an email thanking me for making such a positive difference in her life. She is now living the life she loves and helping others do the same. I can’t think of anything in the world more incredible than this feeling. I can see now how living the life of my dreams is the most selfless thing I can do for this world. When I spread my light, another person feels empowered to spread theirs, and then another spreads theirs, and this continues. I am so grateful I get to be part of this beautiful experience.

    And another miracle: I received an unexpected check for more money than I’ve ever made in a single day! I still can’t believe it. The money came to me in the energy of love, bringing harm to no one. I feel so happy and grateful to know that every time I spend money in the energy of love, I receive even more in return. I used to believe that money was limited, but now I know that money is abundant, and there is more than enough to go around for all of us.

    I spent the evening with my love. We cooked dinner together (taco night!) and watched TV together snuggled up on the couch. As my love held me, I’ve never felt safer or more treasured, cherished, and adored. Thank you, Universe, for blessing me with unconditional love. I am so grateful for the miracles that brought us together, and I will never take a second of this life for granted.

    Today was a miracle. Just like yesterday was; just like tomorrow will be. I feel so grateful to live this life of mine. I am receiving more and more every day, and life just keeps getting better.

    Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

    55×5 Manifestation Method Examples

    To practice the 55×5 Manifestation Method, choose an affirmation, then write down your chosen affirmation 55 times in a row for 5 days straight. The affirmation you use should align with the feelings of already having your desires. (So think about what you want to manifest, then write an affirmation declaring your gratitude and excitement for already having this thing.)

    For example, if you want to manifest $1,000 this week, you might write, “I am so happy and grateful for the extra $1,000 I received this week!”

    Here are a few more examples:

    • I am so grateful that I’m going on a date with the partner of my dreams this Friday!
    • I am so grateful to be a successful entrepreneur making $20,000 a month.
    • I can’t believe I’m going on my dream vacation to Hawaii!
    • I feel joyful and thankful that I’m driving my dream car!
    • My heart is filled with gratitude for the 5 new clients I signed this week.

    To illustrate how this works, let’s use the affirmation, “I am so grateful to be a successful entrepreneur making $20,000 a month.” On Day 1, grab a journal or notebook and write this affirmation 55 times in a row. Don’t take any breaks while you’re writing; you want to complete this in one sitting. As you write, let the positive feelings of the words wash over you. On Day 2, you’re going to take your journal or notebook out again, and you’ll write this same affirmation 55 times that day. Days 3, 4, and 5, same thing.

    Below, I’ve included an example of how this might look in your manifestation journal for Day 1. This is simply one affirmation written 55 times. Days 2, 3, 4, and 5 will look identical to this example.

    369 Method Examples

    To practice the 369 Method, choose an affirmation just like what you’d use for the 55×5 Manifestation Method (above). Write down your affirmation 3 times in the morning, 6 times in the afternoon, and 9 times in the evening. Do this for 21 days in a row. As you write it down, maintain high vibrations and make sure to be consistent. I also find it helpful to say my affirmation aloud throughout the day.

    To show you a manifestation journal example for the 369 Method, I’m going to use the exact same affirmation we used above. This is how your affirmation will look Day 1, and then you’ll repeat this exact same process on the following days.

    Morning
    • I am so grateful to be a successful entrepreneur making $20,000 a month.
    • I am so grateful to be a successful entrepreneur making $20,000 a month.
    • I am so grateful to be a successful entrepreneur making $20,000 a month.
    Afternoon
    • I am so grateful to be a successful entrepreneur making $20,000 a month.
    • I am so grateful to be a successful entrepreneur making $20,000 a month.
    • I am so grateful to be a successful entrepreneur making $20,000 a month.

    General Manifestation Journal Examples

    Your manifestation journal doesn’t have to be dedicated to one specific manifestation practice, such as scripting or the 369 Method. For instance, gratitude and positive affirmations are the foundation of a successful manifestation routine and can be included in your daily journaling practice.

    Here are some examples of different types of components you can include in your manifestation journal:

    • Positive Affirmations: One to three positive affirmations to lift your vibration
    • Daily Gratitude: One to three things you feel grateful for today
    • Signs & Synchronicities: Signs and synchronicities you’ve experienced recently
    • Daily Intention: One powerful intention for the day
    • Today, I Will Manifest: One small thing you’ll manifest today, such as a joyful conversation, a small amount of money, or a moment of peace.

    Each day, you can choose to incorporate any of these elements into your manifestation journal. To help you get started, you can click here to get your free manifestation journal template. Below, you’ll find a manifestation journal example using these components. (But feel free to change it up a bit to best fit your needs! You can also use these in conjunction with a scripting entry or one of the other journaling methods above.)

    Positive Affirmation
    • I have the power to create the life I desire.
    • I am tuned into passion, positivity, and prosperity.
    • I am aligned with the energy of pure abundance.
    Daily Gratitude
    • My home for keeping me safe and warm
    • An abundance of food and water for nourishment
    • A working laptop to complete all of my tasks
    Signs & Synchronicities
    • The penny I found on the ground yesterday felt like a loving note from the Universe letting me know abundance is on its way
    • I’ve seen 444 all over lately! This reminds me that I’m always supported by the Universe.
    Daily Intention
    • Today, I will embody the energy of pure abundance in all that I do.
    Today, I Will Manifest . . .
    • Today, I will manifest a moment of unexpected joy and laughter!

    The Art Of Self Growth

    One of my all-time favorite affirmations is this:

    “I love myself fully now as I continue to grow.”

    Growth is a never-ending process. For as long as you’re breathing, you’re continuing to transform, discover, and unearth the deepest parts of yourself. This means that if you wait until you’ve completed your journey of personal growth to finally show yourself the love and compassion you deserve, you’ll be waiting for the rest of your life.

    You are allowed to love yourself fully right now, exactly as you are. Even in your imperfections. Even when you make mistakes. Even when you’re not completely certain who you truly are. At every stage of your journey, you are worthy of deep, unconditional love.

    Embrace the journey. Love the journey. And also embrace and love yourself as you navigate through your inner and outer worlds.

    Below, you’ll find 30 journal prompts for self growth that will help you to go within and gently peel back the layers of your innermost self. As you answer these prompts, be sure to show yourself extra love and compassion. Don’t judge or criticize yourself for your answers. This journey of growth isn’t easy, and it’s something many of us avoid, so acknowledge the courage it takes to take this step.

    What Is Scripting?

    Whether you’re new to the Law of Attraction or an experienced manifestor, scripting is a worthwhile practice to help lift your vibrations, elevate your emotions, and align you with the frequency of your dreams and desires. It’s also a beneficial practice to help you set intentions and get clear about what exactly you want to manifest.

    So what exactly is scripting?

    Scripting is a combination of visualization and journaling. In this practice, you write about your dreams and desires in story-like form, as if you already possess everything you want to manifest. For instance, let’s say you want to manifest your dream job. When you sit down to script, you’d write about your day as if you have your dream job right now, in the present moment. Here are just a few ways you could approach this:

    • You could write about receiving the phone call offering you your dream job as if it just happened or is happening right now.
    • You could also write about your perfect first day on the dream job.
    • Or you could even write as if you’ve been working in this dream job for a while now, and you’re absolutely loving it.

    The key here is to write as if you’re already living your dreams and desires right now in this present moment. You’ve made it. You have everything you can dream of and more. There is no more waiting; it’s all here for you, and all you have to do is reach out and grab it.

    Below, learn more about the benefits of scripting, plus get tips and prompts to help you get started today. And be sure to download your free Law of Attraction scripting template. In this template, I take you through the different components that should be added to your script. After you complete the forms in this template a few times, you’ll have all the tools you need to complete your own powerful scripts.

    Benefits Of Scripting

    So why exactly should you add scripting to your manifestation practice? Here are the key benefits of scripting:

    • Aligns your frequency with your desires: In scripting, you don’t simply write the words down and leave them there; you allow yourself to feel all of the positive emotions of having your dreams in the present moment. When you do this, you get on the same wavelength of your desires, which attracts more positive things, people, and experiences to flow into your life.
    • Raises your vibration: It feels good to feel good. By raising your vibrations, you’re inviting more good-feeling vibes into your inner and outer worlds.
    • Helps you set intentions: One of the first steps in manifestation is to get clear about what you want. Scripting your dream life allows you to figure out exactly what you want in full detail.
    • Engages your sacral and third eye chakras: How often do you get to engage in creative practices? How often do you use your imagination in your daily life? Through scripting, you get to let your inner creative being shine, allowing you to engage with your energy centers for creativity (sacral) and imagination (third eye). In many ways, scripting can engage all of your chakras, as it allows you to feel safe, strong, confident, loved, and abundant. When your chakras are open and energy is flowing through you with ease, you’re in closest alignment with your highest, most authentic self.
    • Builds confidence: One of the biggest barriers to manifesting your dreams is your own self-doubt. When you script, you not only increase your own positive emotions, but you lift your confidence and show your mind that you can do it. This is why elite athletes often practice visualization exercises repeatedly before a big game or event. By the time the event actually comes, they’ve done it so many times in their minds, they feel confident in their abilities and know they can perform at the highest level.

    Tips For Scripting

    • Use your five senses: To fully immerse yourself in your script, write about the experience using all of your senses. What do you see, feel, smell, touch, and taste? If you want to manifest a new car, you could write pages simply detailing how it feels to sit in and drive this car using all of your senses.
    • Use only past and present tense: Write about each experience as if it’s happening right now (or just happened). For instance, if you’re scripting a day in your dream life, you could imagine it’s the end of the day and you’re journaling about everything that happened that day. Or you could write as though you’re walking through this day right now. The key is to feel as if this experience belongs to you now, not in an intangible future.
    • Express gratitude: When you express gratitude, you’re essentially telling the Universe, “More of this please.” More love. More joy. More freedom. More abundance. In your script, frequently express gratitude for this incredible life you get to live.
    • Don’t just write; feel: I alluded to this above, but it can’t be emphasized enough. The key to making scripting work is to feel all of the positive emotions of having your dreams and desires right now. Let these feelings light up every cell of your being. And when you’re done, continue to carry them with you throughout your day.

    Setting Goals

    Most of us have short-term and long-term goals for our lives. These goals might include positive career movement, financial success, living in the place you’ve always dreamed of, and/or having a healthy, long-term relationship.

    But how often do you take the time to write your goals down? It’s easy to lose sight of your goals in the midst of your daily life. When dealing with external demands, thinking about your long-term goals sometimes seems less urgent.

    But it shouldn’t be.

    Your goals matter. Every dream, desire, passion, and objective that’s been placed inside you has been put there for a reason. And you owe it to yourself to follow it as far as it will take you.

    Below, you’ll find 33 journal prompts for goal setting and future planning. I’ve also included some tips on how to use these journal prompts as well as resources throughout the article to help you with achieving your goals. Let these journal prompts and resources guide you in creating a life that fulfills your heart and supports your mind, body, and spirit.

    How to Use These Journal Prompts

    • To start, find a quiet spot where you won’t be interrupted. Allow yourself to truly connect with your inner self. It doesn’t matter if it’s morning, afternoon, or evening; what matters is that you’re able to devote this time to you. See if you can dedicate at least ten to twenty minutes solely to journaling.
    • You can answer just one question at a time or several in a single journaling session. It will just depend on the type of question and what kinds of answers it reveals within. (Just don’t rush it!)
    • If you find yourself straying from the question a little, that’s okay. You might be on the verge of discovering something within yourself you hadn’t realized before.
    • Finally, enact a “no self-criticism” rule while you’re journaling. Let’s say that as you write, you realize that you haven’t been making any positive movement toward your goals in the past six months. Don’t judge yourself here. Instead, choose to show yourself compassion, and acknowledge the fact that you’re making progress now.

    Journal Prompts for Goal Setting

    How to Release Limiting Beliefs (and Create New Beliefs)

    In this post, learn how to release limiting beliefs using several powerful practices. These practices will not only help you release limiting beliefs, but they’ll allow you to make space to create new, empowering beliefs that will serve you as you step into a new chapter, filled with limitless possibilities.

    What is a Limiting Belief?

    A limiting belief is a deep-seated belief that holds you back from realizing your true potential and living the life that you know you’re truly meant to live.

    Limiting beliefs can come in many forms. Here are a few examples:

    • There are already thousands of wellness coaches out there. I don’t have anything special to offer to stand out from the crowd. I’ll never be able to compete.
    • I’ll get back on the dating scene someday, but nobody’s going to love me the way I am now. First, I need to lose twenty pounds. My physical self has to be in peak shape to be loved.
    • Only really lucky people get to have that kind of success. I’ll never make it.

    Do any of these sound familiar? Or have you experienced similar types of thoughts that have held you back from taking the next step personally or professionally?

    Most of the time, you’ll find that your limiting beliefs are rooted in fear: fear of rejection, fear of abandonment, fear of not having what it takes, fear of being seen for your true self, fear of failure, and even fear of success.

    But know this: you are not your fears.

    And you have the power to rise above your limiting beliefs and fears. What held you back yesterday doesn’t have to continue to hold you back today.

    Below, you’ll discover how to release limiting beliefs using several powerful practices. You can use one or two of these practices, or you can try them all and see how they feel for you.

    Even more, these practices don’t just help you release limiting beliefs; they allow you to create new, empowering beliefs that will guide you in your journey forward, into a life filled with limitless possibilities.

    How to Release Limiting Beliefs

    Make a Reframed Beliefs List

    One of my favorite ways to release limiting beliefs is to make a list of new, reframed beliefs.

    To do this, you can use a sheet of paper or pull up a blank document on your computer. Make a table with two columns.

    Title the first column, Old Limiting Beliefs. Title the second column, New Reframed Beliefs. You can also use the titles, Limiting Beliefs I’m Releasing and Empowering Beliefs I’m Embracing.

    Under the Limiting Beliefs column, write down all of the limiting beliefs that have held you back. Maybe there’s just one or two really big ones, or there may be several you want to write down.

    Now, what’s the opposite of those limiting beliefs you just wrote down?

    In the next column, turn every limiting belief into a new, positive, empowering belief. Essentially, you’re writing a powerful affirmation here. If your belief is that you’re not good enough, affirm that you are good enough. Write what feels good to you!

    Repeat these new reframed beliefs as often as you need to. You might decide to look at them every morning and recite your empowering beliefs aloud.

    Here’s an example of how your list might look:

    Old Limiting BeliefsNew Reframed Beliefs
    I’m not talented enough to make it. Why even bother?I have what it takes to succeed and thrive. I’m more than enough!
    Nobody will want to date someone like me. I shouldn’t even try.I have so many amazing qualities to offer. There’s someone out there looking for exactly someone like me.

    Burn Your Limiting Beliefs List

    One practice that might be cathartic for you is to take the limiting beliefs list you wrote above and burn it. Let this be a representation of you letting go of your limiting beliefs and making space for something new in your life.

    If you do this, I do recommend still finding a way to turn those limiting beliefs into empowering beliefs. After you burn your limiting beliefs, you can make a list of positive affirmations that represent your new beliefs. Instead of focusing on the negative energy of your old beliefs, focus on the fresh energy of your new beliefs. Let this new energy carry you forward into your next chapter.

    Visualize Releasing Your Limiting Beliefs

    Another one of my favorite practices for releasing limiting beliefs is to envision myself throwing my limiting beliefs off a cliff and watching them disappear.

    To do this, find a quiet, safe spot where you won’t be interrupted. Close your eyes. Imagine you’re standing at the edge of a cliff. Below is a deep chasm; you can’t see the bottom. Now, invite your limiting beliefs to come forward. See them with non-judgmental awareness. This means not letting the negative energy associated with these limiting beliefs to cause negative feelings within.

    You might even send a little love to your limiting beliefs and acknowledge the ways in which they tried to serve you. For instance, you might say, “I recognize that you were trying to protect me from getting my heart broken, but I no longer need your service anymore.”

    Then, release these old beliefs into the chasm below. Watch them until they disappear. Feel yourself getting lighter without the weight of these fears pressing down on you.

    Now you have space to create new, positive beliefs. Create your new beliefs in love, kindness, and courage, knowing you have the strength to step into the life you were always meant to live.

    Journal Your Feelings

    Instead of making a list, it might help you to explore your limiting beliefs in journaling.

    Journaling allows you the time and space to explore the limiting beliefs that have been holding you back. It also allows you to gently probe these beliefs and ask, “Is it true?”

    For instance, you might discover that the belief that you’re not talented enough has been holding you back from pursuing your dreams. But once you start writing about it, you realize that you’ve just been using this fear to stay small. Even more, you realize that it absolutely is not true. You are talented enough. And you have what it takes to succeed.

    Explore your limiting beliefs with love and compassion through journaling. And in your writing, you can release these beliefs and create new beliefs that support your mind, body, and spirit.

    Here’s a few questions to ask yourself as you journal:

    • What’s stopping me from taking the next step to pursuing my dreams?
    • What fears do I possess?
    • What beliefs am I clinging onto?
    • If these limiting beliefs didn’t exist, what would I do?
    • Are these limiting beliefs actually true?
    • What new, empowering beliefs am I creating today?

    Express Gratitude for Your Limiting Beliefs

    One way to overcome your limiting beliefs is to make them a little less intimidating. And you do this by recognizing that limiting beliefs aren’t 100% bad, scary things.

    You possess these limiting beliefs for a reason. Most likely, they were protecting you from something. Take some time to explore how these limiting beliefs may have been trying to serve you. You can write this in a journal, create a list, or simply think about your answers.

    Then, thank these limiting beliefs for the ways in which they served you. Afterwards, you can use any of the practices on this list to release them, or you can simply say, “I’m ready to release you now.” Feel the space around you open up as you prepare to create new beliefs that are more in line with the life you want to live.

    Next Steps

    So you’ve released your limiting beliefs; what comes next?

    In the beginning, you may fall back into old thought patterns that don’t reflect where you want to go with your life. When this happens, don’t judge or criticize yourself. Rather, react with love and a whole lot of self-compassion.

    It helps to have positive affirmations on-hand that lift your vibrations and help you to feel confident and empowered. Choose some of your favorite affirmations and save them to your phone (or print them out). Make sure to look at them every day to keep your mindset focused on empowerment and positivity. To help you get started, I’ve linked to some of my favorite positive affirmations below.

    If you find yourself falling back into old, limiting beliefs, you can repeat any of the practices on this list. Remember that it took you years to cultivate these beliefs, so it may take some time to release them. And that’s okay! In time, you’ll find that your old beliefs are slipping further and further away from your mindset, until you no longer fall back to them anymore.

    Experiencing Anxiety

    What does anxiety feel like to you?

    For some, anxiety is most often experienced physically. Your chest may start to feel tight and hot. Your stomach might feel like it’s flipping over itself. Or maybe there’s tension in your head that just won’t go away.

    For others, anxiety might be experienced emotionally or mentally. A stream of steady, anxious thoughts might keep you up at night, or your anxiety may cause you to feel sad, angry, or overall pessimistic.

    And still, you might experience a little bit of all of it: physical, mental, and emotional symptoms. While it can be tempting to want to suppress your inner anxiety or label it as “bad,” it can be a healing exercise to go within to understand the source of your anxiety, how it feels in your body, and what practices help you when anxiety takes over.

    Below, you’ll find 30 gentle and calming journal prompts for anxiety. These journal prompts are meant to help you to gently probe your anxiety with kindness, compassion, and love. I encourage you to give yourself time and space to answer these prompts in a safe place where you’re free of outside distractions. Let yourself truly connect to your inner self. You might find it helpful to light some candles or play some soft music while you write.

    Note that these journal prompts are not meant to replace talking to a healthcare professional. For further anxiety resources, I encourage you to check out this article from Everyday Health. It includes a list of organizations that can provide valuable information about anxiety, resources for BIPOC communities, information about financial assistance, and more.

    New Moon Magic

    The new moon is a beautiful time for setting intentions, connecting to your deepest dreams and desires, and releasing what no longer serves you to make space for new beginnings. If you’ve been holding onto old, heavy energy within, this is the time to release what’s weighing you down to embrace new, fresh energy.

    This is also the time to embrace your ability to create anything you want in this life. You are a powerful creator, and while you may sometimes forget this in your day-to-day life, the new moon offers an opportunity to step back into your power and claim the life that’s been waiting for you.

    But it isn’t simply about creating anything; it’s about creating the truest, most beautiful life you can imagine for yourself. You have specific dreams and desires that have been placed in your heart. If you’ve been living out of alignment with your dreams, this is the time to connect back to your dreams and trust that they’ve been given to you for a reason.

    Your dreams are meant for you and you alone.

    So during this time, make space to truly connect with your inner self. You might have a sacred space in your home, or maybe you prefer to go outside beneath the stars. Wherever you go, just make sure you have some uninterrupted time to truly get in touch with your inner voice. What does the life you want to create for yourself look like? What fears are holding you back? Over the next month, what do you want to release and what do you want to embrace?

    Honor your dreams. Honor your heart. And honor the fact that the love and light of the Universe flows within you. You can create the life you’ve always dreamed of.

    Let this be the first step.
