Journaling prompts: unlocking the barriers of the mind

Each month I host a free 'Journaling for well-being' workshop. It's 30 minutes of support and inspiration for your journaling practice. We focus on two techniques:


1 - Wild writing, a free-style journaling method.

2 - Utilising guided prompts around a particular theme.


The theme for the session was 'unlocking the barriers of the mind'.


"The only limits that exist are the ones you place on yourself."


How often is this true? Our negative inner voice, our mindsets or internal obstacles often dictate what we deem to be possible.


These are real challenges that could be hindering you without you realising it - happening in your sub-conscious. Preventing you from doing the things you want to do, taking the next step or simply living with peace.


These barriers can be influenced by many factors including as societal expectations, cultural norms, or past experiences. Mindset barriers may include limiting beliefs, negative thought patterns, fears, self-doubt, or any other patterns that get in the way of your growth, well-being, and goals.


Breaking free from the barriers of the mind often involves self-reflection, challenging limiting beliefs, cultivating a positive mindset, and adopting strategies to overcome obstacles. Journaling is a powerful way to start this self-reflection and raise awareness of what may be (sub-consciously) keeping you stuck.


Here are some journaling prompts to help you reflect on the barriers that may be in your way, so to help you become aware and more forward.


  1. Identify one self-limiting belief and challenge it with a different perspective.

  2. Recall a fear that held you back in the past. How can you redefine it to propel you forward?

  3. List three negative thoughts; replace them with positive alternatives.

  4. Reflect on your self-imposed expectations. How can you redefine them for personal growth?

  5. Assess your self-talk's impact on emotions. How can you create a more supportive inner dialogue?

  6. Explore forgiveness for past grievances. How can releasing them foster personal growth?

  7. Envision your ideal mindset. What daily practices can cultivate and maintain this mental freedom?

For more prompts and further reflection guidance check out my other journaling resources.


If you find these prompts useful, why not come along to one of my free journaling workshops which take place monthly throughout the year - the details can be found here.


Alternatively, you can download my free journaling toolkit to get your started.
