Next time you’re out with a friend, a significant other, a family member, or just meeting someone new, try trading in the typical “How are you?” or “How was your day?” with some of these thought-provoking, soul-inspired, and heart-connecting questions for a change.

I promise, you’ll be pleasantly surprised by the dynamic shifts in your encounters with others.

1.  What inspires you?

2.  What are you grateful for today?

3.  What surprising experiences or synchronicities have you encountered recently?

4.  What energizes you?

5.  If you knew you could not fail, what would you attempt to do?

6.  How can I support & inspire more creative flow and divine freedom of expression in your life today?

7.  What unexpected, thoughtful gift have you received lately?

8.  What playful activity have you engaged in recently?

9.  What nurtures your soul?

10.  How can I help deepen our sense of connection?

Note: sometimes, I just post/write these questions on a colorful post-it, or use a washable crayon on a mirror or window, and leave these surprise notes behind for a loved one to find… Could even be a simple, spontaneous text or email.  Not expecting an answer, the intent may be to merely brighten up someone’s day, connect in a meaningful way, inspire them, let them know you’re thinking about them, or leave them with a delightful morsel for them to ponder upon throughout their day.
