Visit again tomorrow for a new prompt!


Think of a creative project that is in the works for you right now. Imagine taking a short break (even an hour, or an afternoon) from it. There probably will be a part of you that resists this small break, but see if you can access your own Permission to Rest voice and allow yourself some luscious time and space away from the project. If you don't have any creative projects on the burner right now, try simply giving yourself permission to rest in some other way in your life. Make your own SoulCollage® card to express something similar in your own life.

Frequently Answered Questions

Q: How do I access past prompts?

A: The '365 Pictures' prompt machine is programmed to show one picture/prompt per day throughout the year. Because each prompt is a surprise emergence, you may access past prompts only when they loop around next year on their scheduled date (see credits page for schedule). See, this way you have a never-ending loop of prompts to live for in anticipation and surprise!

Q: Is the rotation of prompts fixed?

A: Yes, this perpetual prompter will cycle annually according to the monthly schedule listed the credits page.
