List-Making as a Healing Tool

Do you know that the simple act of writing a list can open doors to personal discovery and spiritual growth, and can provide a guiding light with the power to heal, instruct and change lives? From bucket lists to wish lists to love lists to lists for spiritual reflection, these lined items can help examine milestones, identify complications, embrace adventures, dispel fears, celebrate joy, contemplate faith, and so much more.
