Journaling Prompts

Inner Wisdom: How do you connect with your own inner wisdom? Are you someone who trusts your gut? What do you feel in your body when you know for certain that something is right or wrong? How do you handle situations when your inner wisdom is being challenged?
 
This I believe: What are the core beliefs that you hold dear? What do you know for certain without any reservation or confusion? Does this piece of knowledge come from your own life experience or from a person, group or concept?
 
Collective Wisdom: There are things that are seemingly part of the collective wisdom: (‘we are smarter than me’). Do you find yourself fitting in with, or at odds with, what others may see as ‘the way’? Is there such a thing as true ‘clear thinking’ or ‘good judgment’? Is there a group with which you connect that speaks to your particular kind of understanding?
 
A Mother’s Wisdom or Woman’s Intuition: Do you believe that women have a special ability to ‘see’ the world with a unique understanding or comprehension that men may not share? If you’re a mother, do you have insight or foresight that the men in your world don’t have?
