What did that item remind me of, or what emotions was I associating with it?
If that item is from a time in my past, what was my life like then?
What specific details/thoughts/beliefs/experiences from that time in my life do I want to move forward from?
How are these old beliefs keeping me small or stuck?
What else in my life (relationships, obligations, other beliefs) might be keeping me from achieving my dream?
What do I truly want to cultivate in this new era of my life?
What stories about myself must I let go of in order to create what I've been dreaming about?
If I knew that I couldn't fail, what would I go after?
