Goodbye 2021! New Year Journal Prompts

Goodbye 2021 Journal Prompts

We begin the Goodbye 2021 Hello 2022 New Year Journaling EXTRAVAGANZA with these journal prompts for looking back on 2021.

It's actually REALLY HARD to keep making new goals for the New Year if you're not taking the time to reflect on and learn from what happened with your plans for the year that is ending.

By taking some time to reflect on the year that has passed, you're gathering up the gifts and lessons so you can carry them with you into the new year.

These New Year Journal Prompts are for reflecting on the year that passed, and using what you learn there to look ahead to the new year.

The purpose is to create some space for processing and healing the hard parts of the year that is ending, and getting clarity on what you want to let go of, to make space for what you want to receive in the new year.

We've had a couple of rough years in a row and this work feels more important than ever.

New Year Journal Prompts For Looking Back On The Year That Is ending:

What did you try with your dreams in 2021?  What worked?  What didn’t work?

What was amazing in 2021?

What are you most grateful for about 2021?

What did you do in 2021 that you’re proud of?

What did you learn/discover that you want to bring into 2022?

What was hard in 2021?

What do you want to leave behind in 2021?

How did your dreams grow in 2021?

How did YOU grow in 2021? What gifts and strengths do you have now that you didn’t have in 2020?

Is there anything you need to do to complete your year? Any unfinished business that you’d like to finish, and leave behind as you move into 2022?

Go deeper with the Goodbye 2021 Alchemy Releasing Ceremony.

This is an alchemy class for releasing all the things you want to release, before stepping into 2022.

The class is part of the special bonus content that is available to Dream Book members.

Journal Prompts for when you’re ready for your NEXT LEVEL dreams

Journal prompts for when you're ready for your next level dreams

Journal Prompts for when you're ready for your NEXT LEVEL dreams:

What does this mean for you right now?
What does your next level look like?
And more importantly - what does it feel like?
Write it out, make it VERY VERY CLEAR.
​​

​I would love to help you make it happen!​

​In Dream Book we work from the belief that your dream is here to GROW you.

Your dream comes from the intersection of your purpose, your creativity, your uniqueness and your potential.

Pursuing this next - level dream of yours is REALLY about becoming more of who you are here to be. A braver, and even more creative and more powerful version of yourself than the creative genius you are today.

By giving as much attention to the inner processes of healing and growth as you do to the outer work of makign your dream happen - you get to play, heal and grow your way into your dream.

​I offer tons of tools + support for this work, in Dream Book.

It's Monday! Join me live for Creative Genius Planning: live meditation + journaling for working on your genius plan for this week!

It’s happening on Instagram live this morning at 10 am (Central, North America). Join me here, or catch the replay at that same link after we’re done.

We’ll do an alchemy meditation to connect with your intuition and get more clear on what YOU need this week to help move you towards where you want to be.

Then I’ll pick journal prompt cards, for some questions to help figure out HOW to move closer to your dreams this week.

These sessions are MAGIC. Every week I get more emails from people telling me how helpful they are.

Be there!

Journal Prompts for when nothing is working

Journal Prompts for When Nothing Is Working

Take 10 deep breaths, with your hand on your heart. Imagine sending yourself love.

It's totally ok that nothing is working right now. Everyone experiences this, this is a natural part of being alive. It's ESPECIALLY a natural part of being a growing creative being pursuing your dreams.

Some parts of the path just suck. It's not a reason to give up or beat yourself up.

The only way out is through.

We all naturally try to avoid discomfort but you're going to have to go right THROUGH it. This is the brave work that your dreams demand of you.

Journal Prompts for when nothing is working part 1: This feels awful!

We start by processing your feelings a bit, because you can't uncover any useful intel while you're emotionally tangled up.

Nobody likes this part. But be brave. What's going on? Start by just writing it out.

How does this make you feel?

Try to be more detailed and descriptive about how it makes it you feel.

How do these feelings feel in your body?

Are these feelings familiar? Have you felt them before about other things?

What are the tools that are available to you, for processing and healing your feelings? List them all and choose what you want to work with right now. (If you can't think of anything, start with sending LOVE to all of your hurting inner selves)

What do you really NEED right now?

Journal Prompts for when nothing is working part 2: Exploring the situation from different perspectives + looking for new possibilities

What if everything is working just fine and it's YOU who needs to change? (In some situations, like when dealing with systemic injustices like racism and ableism, this is NOT a helpful prompt. In other situations, like when YOU really are the thing that's in your way, it can be very helpful.)

WHY do you think things are not working?

Is your answer to that last prompt true, or are you making up a bullshit story to hold yourself back?

What are the possible gifts in things not working right now?

What haven't you tried?

Why haven't you tried it?

Come up with 5 ideas for things you could try next. Break those down into super small teeny tiny little steps.

Remember the only way out is through. Go do one tiny thing.

 

Want some help doing the thing?

It will help you feel more CLEAR and SURE about your next steps.

Hello 2021! New Year Journal Prompts

New Year Journal Prompts

These New Year Journal Prompts are for reflecting on the year that passed, and using what you learn there to look ahead to the new year.

It's actually REALLY HARD to keep making new goals for the New Year if you're not taking the time to reflect on and learn from what happened with your plans for the year that is ending.

By taking some time to reflect on the year that has passed, you're gathering up the gifts and lessons so you can carry them with you into the new year.

These new year journal prompts also help you create some space for processing and healing the hard parts of the year that is ending, and getting clarity on what you want to let go of, to make space for what you want to receive in the new year.

Since 2020 was kind of a big year, I'm also doing all of this in a much deeper way in Releasing 2020 Blessing 2021 - right here.

New Year Journal Prompts Part 1. Looking back on the year that is ending:

What did you try with your dreams in 2020?  What worked?  What didn’t work?

What was amazing in 2020?

What are you most grateful for about 2020?

What did you do in 2020 that you’re proud of?

What did you learn/discover that you want to bring into 2021?

What was hard in 2020?

What do you want to leave behind in 2020?

How did your dreams grow in 2020?

How did YOU grow in 2020? What gifts and strengths do you have now that you didn’t have in 2019?

Is there anything you need to do to complete your year? Any unfinished business that you’d like to finish, and leave behind as you move into 2021?

New Year Journal Prompts Part 2. Looking forward to the new year:

Try to list 5-10 things (impossibly big or microscopically small or anything in between) you’d like to have happen in 2021, in each of these different parts of your life:

health * relationships * creativity * purpose/career * money * self-love/self-care * spirituality * happiness * adventure/play

I know that seems like a lot, but the act of listing TONS of things can really open up your sense of possibility. So spend some time with this - I find it's best to leave this list out somewhere for a few weeks over the holidays, so I keep adding new things as I think of them.

When you're done go back through your list and imagine how each of these things will make you happier in 2021. If there is anything on your list that won’t truly make you feel happier – cross it out.

Is 2021 a year to focus on One Big Dream or is there a bunch of stuff you want to do?  Either way, write out your Big Dream, or Bunch Of Dreams, for 2021.

Why do you want this?

How will you feel when you have it?

Do you already know how to make this dream real, or is this something you need to learn more about first?

What’s your plan for giving this dream what it needs to thrive in 2021?  Brainstorm 10 things you can try.

What do you want to STOP doing in 2021?  And what are some things you can you do to make that as easy as possible? How will not having these things in your life make you happier?

Then imagine yourself at the end of 2021.

(You might want to draw/collage/doodle an image of you from one year from now).

How are you different?  How did you grow?  What new strengths and skills do you have?  Does you-from-one-year-from-today have any messages or advice for you?

Journal Prompts for when you have too many ideas and can’t pick which one to focus on

Journal Prompts for when you have too many ideas and can’t pick which one to focus on

Having more ideas than you know what to do with is a natural part of being creative.

You're a creative genius and your mind doesn't stop. That's good.

But you can't let your abundance of ideas overwhelm you. I know it's easy to be kind of frozen now knowing what to do next, but all movement is good, so you need to get yourself out of that frozen place as quickly as possible.

(I can absolutely help you with that in Dream Book - within the first month alone you'll be seeing your projects, dreams and your possibilities much differently)

This place where you're trying to pick which idea to go with is RIPE with opportunities for your inner critics and limiting beliefs to just take over. So it's important to not stay in this place very long!

These journal prompts will help you get moving sooner.

It's usually not all that important WHICH idea you choose, just that you CHOOSE something and get moving with it.

But we all hesitate and second guess.

Your journal is such a good tool for this, to give you some space to dig deeper, maybe get some insights around WHY you're hesitating and second guessing this particular project, and help you get more clear about what to do next.

Journal prompts for when you have too many ideas and don't know which one to focus on:

Start by writing down ALL of the ideas - get them together on one page.

Then let’s play with ranking them!

Which one would be the MOST fun?

Which one would be the LEAST fun?

Which would be the EASIEST to do?

Which would be FASTEST to get done?

Which would take the most time?

Which would be the most difficult to actually pull off?

What's THE MOST inspiring idea?

Do any of the ideas feel kind of blah or heavy to think about?

Which one will help you reach your goals?

Which one has the biggest potential payoff?

Which one feels the most impossible?

You don't have to answer each of the prompts. It's more important to follow the rabbit-holes.

The point is to explore your ideas from different perspectives.

And while you do this...

👉🏻 What fears or limiting beliefs makes themselves known and what does this tell you about the inner work you need to focus on at this time?

This is the real thing to explore here.

I do have a this set of journal prompts for overcoming fear if you want to explore those.

You DO know what to do next. You just need to make space to HEAR your inner voice more clearly.

This is one of the themes of the Your Next Steps Class (my free class that helps you be more CLEAR and SURE about your next steps - register here if you're not already taking it!)

You already have the answers.

You already have everything you need to move forward.

But you need PRACTICES that help you connect with your inner wisdom and clear all the bullshit away so you can access all of this good stuff.

And you need to be doing the practices every day. They are every bit as important as the outer steps you are taking with your projects. This is the work that keeps your creative engine clean and running well.

I do this work every day in Dream Book and would love for you to join me there.
