Reflective Prompts for the Quiet Moments

Amy Goldbeck, LPC, R-DMT, CHt

As Covid-19 hits closer to home for many, and this year comes to a close, we have much to reflect on.  There are glimmers of hope mixed with great loss. Endings and beginnings. We’ve had hardships, triumphs, presidents, and global movements. Transitions, fear, sickness, and promise.

The holidays will come and go regardless (however different they might be this year) which calls us to reflect on what is really important. The contrast of this year provides insight, and we know ourselves better as a result. As we hunker down for winter, may the quiet moments bring you insight, peace, and inspiration for the New Year.  Here are some prompts for those quiet moments. 

 

Ask Yourself some introspective questions and choose a modality of your choice. A journal prompt, movement prompt, art-making prompt, or meditative prompt. Use any one or more questions.

  • How would you describe yourself?
  • How would others describe you?
  • What do you know that they don’t know about you?
  • What do you love about yourself? 
  • Have you always been this way?
  • What new parts do you love?
  • What old parts do you love?
  • What do you still continue to work on?
  • How do you work toward that?
  • How do you feel about yourself?
  • How well do you know yourself?
  • What are your beliefs/values?
  • Where do your beliefs come from?
  • Were they given to you?  Taught?
  • Did you grow up with them or have you found new ones that feel more fitting?
  • What is meaningful to you?
  • How do you increase meaning or invite meaning into your life?  Your experience?
  • What brings you fulfillment?
  • Do you have a sense of your purpose?
  • What were you born to do?
  • What matters to you?
  • What are you passionate about?
  • What are you “all about”?
  • What feels most important?
  • How do you make time and space for that?
  • What do you really want for yourself?
  • Do you allow yourself to dream about it?
  • Do you allow yourself to feel into it?  Move it?  Create it? 
  • Do you allow yourself to grow and explore?
  • Do you give yourself permission to make mistakes?
  • Do you love yourself?
  • Are you gentle with yourself?  

Write a Letter to Your Higher Power, whatever that is to YOU. Source, Infinite Spirit, Nature, The Universe, God, Buddha, The Cosmos, Higher Intelligence, Love Energy, or anything else!  

Dear Universe, (example)

Please continue to show me the way. Please continue to give me strength, compassion, courage,  patience, articulation, and trust. Please continue to provide signs and symbols that I can recognize as your communication. Help me to heal where I need the most healing. And help me to be an instrument of your Love. Help me to get rooted in the meadow of confidence and belief. And help me to dig up my power. I ask that the energy of ____ be set on its spiritual path for the highest and greatest good of all involved. Thank you endlessly for your gifts, your guidance, and your love.  

Signed, Your name

 

What does YOUR  conversation sound like?

Write a Letter to Yourself! (Example below). Once it’s written, you could dance its essence, create art about it, or meditate to a recording of it. Get creative! Also, no one is editing these, so let it flow and be natural!

Dear Self, (example)

You don’t have to do the hardest thing. You just have to do the thing that brings you the most joy. The thing that you were born to do. The thing that aligns with your most authentic, highest Self. You don’t have to prove anything to anyone. You don’t have to be anything to anyone unless it feels healthy and it’s your choice. It’s all about alignment. When you tune into the pipeline that contains the flow–which is your core, which is your portal, which is your channel– you can trust that everything in your heart will come to be as it is meant to be. Your best self doesn’t have to be more, more, more! Unless that is more utter joy. It can be a perfect balance. Or even less of something. What is it that you long for? The key is to ask, “what are YOU wishing for?” rather than “what are others expecting, wanting, or wishing FOR you?”

Love, Your Self

You Got This!

What is YOUR letter like?

If you enjoy this kind of reflection, then you delight in existential questions and enjoy fostering the relationship with yourself.  Amy Goldbeck truly enjoys helping others with this work.  She personally feels that this is the work of life. Once you are tuned into yourself, everything else will fall into place.  She wishes you ALL quiet moments for meaningful reflection and growth.
