  1. What are some recurring patterns or behaviors in your life that you’d like to understand better?
  2. Can you recall a situation from your past that triggered strong emotions or reactions? What do you think was at the root of those feelings?
  3. Are there aspects of yourself that you tend to hide or suppress when interacting with others? Why?
  4. What self-limiting beliefs or negative self-talk do you often find yourself engaging in?
  5. Are there qualities in others that trigger jealousy, resentment, or admiration? What do these feelings reveal about your own desires or insecurities?
  6. What childhood memories stand out to you, and how might they have influenced your current challenges?
  7. Have there been moments when you felt you weren’t being true to yourself or living up to your potential? What emotions were associated with those instances?
  8. Are there situations or topics that you avoid because they make you uncomfortable? What might be the underlying reasons for this avoidance?
  9. What aspects of your personality or behavior do you believe others might perceive as negative?
  10. What roles do you often play in relationships (e.g., caregiver, perfectionist, rebel), and how do these roles relate to your inner challenges?
  11. Can you identify any recurring dreams or fantasies that might provide insights into your subconscious mind?
  12. What qualities or achievements do you find difficult to acknowledge or celebrate about yourself?
  13. When do you feel the most vulnerable or exposed? What thoughts or emotions surface during those moments?
  14. Are there habits or addictions you struggle with that might be linked to deeper emotional issues?
  15. What would you do or pursue if fear of failure or judgment wasn’t holding you back?
  16. Can you recall a time when you felt rejected, abandoned, or unloved? How might this experience influence your current feelings of self-worth?
  17. Are there certain people in your life who consistently trigger strong reactions from you? What might these reactions reveal about your own unresolved issues?
  18. What advice or guidance do you often offer to others that you struggle to follow yourself?
  19. If you could describe your ideal self, what qualities or characteristics would you include? How do these compare to your perceived flaws?
  20. How do you react when someone points out your shortcomings or mistakes? What emotions arise in these situations, and why?

These questions can serve as starting points for participants to delve into their inner world, uncover their core shadows, and begin the process of exploration and integration. Remember, your role as a coach, teacher, and mystic is to provide a supportive and non-judgmental space for participants to engage in this introspective journey.
