  1. What belief pattern did you inherit from your family?
  2. Which of those belief patterns that still have authority in your thinking can you acknowledge are no longer valid?
  3. What superstitions do you have? Which ones have more authority over you than your reasoning ability?
  4. Do you have a personal code of honor? What is it?
  5. Have you ever compromised your code of honor? If so, have you taken steps to heal it?
  6. Do you have unfinished business from your family members? If so, what reasons are prohibiting you from healing your family relationships?
  7. List all the blessings you feel came from your family.
  8. If you are now raising a family, list all the qualities you would like your children to learn from you.
