StoryStarters are a series of prompts and questions designed to help you grow in self-knowledge and awareness of both your inner and external narratives.

Humans view their world through the perceptual lens of story. This narrative-based filter is the easiest way for us to access our subconscious, our memories, our attitudes and beliefs, and our inner stories.

These StoryStarter cards each have a prompt to help us acknowledge or understand either an internal or external story in our life.

Internal, or inner, stories are those private narratives we base on behaviours, responses, thoughts and feelings on. These stories can’t be seen by others.

External stories are the stories that affect or drive us in ways that are visible to others.

If you’re on a path of emotional growth and personal development, these StoryStarters can help you with gaining clarity and realising which area of personal growth to focus on next.


You can use StoryStarters as a focus for journalling, meditation, tarot readings, or your preferred form of self-reflection.
