Journal Prompts for Transformation at Samhain

Updated: Mar 3

Values and beliefs may change as you grow over time. Change is lot like death in that it is destined to arrive, and nothing after will ever be the same.

When change happens, you can greet it with open arms, or you can hide under the bed and be dragged out with your tush in the air.

Joseph Campbell once said, “We must be willing to let go of the life we planned so as to have the life that is waiting for us.” To truly do that takes courage.

Let’s help you develop the courage you need to let go of old dreams and embrace new ones.


As we move deeper into this month of transformation, you might journal and ask yourself:

🔥 (1) What had I planned for this autumn? What *was my vision for this part of the year?

🔥 (2) What aspects of my original dream is it now time for me to let go of?

🔥 (3) Is there anything I need to mourn or grieve over as I make this transition?

🔥 (4) What are 10 things I’m excited or grateful for in my life?

🔥 (5) What potentials do I sense on the horizon, even if they are farther out? What does this new space and freedom feel like?


Create space for change in your life. After journaling, drink some pomegranate juice, or listen to soft music and simply muse about your life.

Life in autumn can be busy, but as the year begins to wind down, keep creating these small spaces of reflection and opening so that change can happen gradually.

I like to create a simple seasonal altar to focus my energies and remain grounded. If you feel inspired, create an altar of autumn leaves, seeds, and other found objects from the season. The ephemeral nature of these objects will help you stay open to change.

When you feel complete, return the altar items outside to the earth.

Letting go for something new can feel cathartic. As you learn how to sense within, it becomes easier to do. Learn to get still in the moment, and seek out the tense areas inside of your mind, body, and soul where you are resisting change. Simply sit with your resistance, breathing and letting yourself know that the resistance is okay.

This may seem surprisingly passive, but it is one of the fastest ways to melt blocks. If you feel resistant to change and need further help, you can always reach out to me for a private session.
