Questions to ask yourself:

Where am I feeling pressure in my life?

What information wants to come to light?

What in my life isn’t standing on a strong foundation?

Is there some anger that I need to express? Why aren’t I able to do it?

Is there a way to release some pressure before I have a big blow up?
