PROSPER THIS YEAR

by Sasha Alex Lessin, Ph.D. Review the steps on your life’s path.  See, and draw lifemaps that show where you’ve been, what you learned and where you head. Discover and reinforce the warp, woof and golden threads of your life fabric.  Re-assess what you declined and maybe bring it into what you weave today.  Draw life maps, purge negatives, embrace positives. You purge programs and attitudes that block your heart’s desires. FIND YOUR PURPOSE Set out a large piece of paper and crayons. Close your eyes.  See the landscape of your life; include your love life.  See the roads you took.  Draw what you saw on a ROADMAP OF YOUR LIFE Draw roadblocks, dangerous curves, detours, fast lanes on your highways, freeways, back roads, toll roads and spirit journeys. When you finish the drawing, view the regions‑‑physical, emotional, social and spiritual‑‑you traveled.  More comes to you as you look at your map; add it. Close your eyes.  Imagine your stand below a peak that symbols your HIGHEST PURPOSE.  Your experiences prepared you to climb to the PEAK, fulfill your missions, find you purpose, meet your destiny.  As you climb you create several great things at subpeaks long your trail.  At each subpeak, a luminescent figure of a more advanced version of the present you greets you.  Move your awareness behind the figure’s eyes.  From her or his eyes remote view what you created at that subpeak.  Then climb to the ultimate peak. Draw you as you trek to your peak.  Show your past, present and future.  Show what got you to ascend.  Identify regions, travel conditions and destinations.  Put your drawing on a wall; view it daily for a week and note what you learn.  . REVIEW LIFE FROM RIPE OLD AGE [Reference: Progoff, I., 1975, At a Journal Workshop] Have a partner take you through the cues in bold type below, then take your partner through them.  Write your responses and summarize your partner’s. Where you see ***, you, then your partner, responds] On your back, eyes closed, relax.  Take 5 deep breaths. ***   Imagine you lived to a healthy OLD AGE–way older than your present years–and it’s your birthday today.  Which birthday, how many years have you worn your present body on this future birthday? ***    Imagine you’ve had your druthers.  You lived right.  You’ve developed your talents.  Your conscience guided you.  Today, you share your birthday with people.  Tell them how your life, so far, has been FULFILLING.  ***  Tell them what you learned about RELATIONSHIPS. ***    Relate what you loved about your LIFESTYLE through the years. ***  Say the MOTTOS that moved you. ***    Tell them what FASCINATED you. ***      What did you CREATE? ***  Tell your guests what, now that you’re at this ripe old age birthday party, what TALENTS you’ve developed so far. ***  Summarize the philosophy and the PRINCIPLES you lived so well so many years. ***     What GOALS did you reach? ***    Say how your CONSCIENCE guided you. ***    What COMMITMENTS led to your good outcomes. ***    If you could achieve ONE MORE THING in this life, what would it be? ***    Tell your PLANS from now till you die. ***  Say what you’d like to those gathered at your birthday. ***    Return to the present.  Open your eyes; make eye contact with me. Trade roles with me; take me through the cue sequence. RETHINK THIS YEAR  What happened this year?  What did you get into and how did it affect you?  Tell the story, the sequence of EVENTS–personal, social and political.  What main CHOICES did you make this year?   How did these choices affect your Inner Child?  Your other subs?  Who were your most important PEOPLE this year?  Picture or think about each person who loomed large in your year.  Say how you got along with each.  Who was your CLOSEST PERSON?  What did you share this year?  Discuss your HEALTH this year.  Describe how you exercise, eat and do substances.  What INNER EXPERIENCES did you have and what did they teach you?  Share meaningful dreams, visions, or IMAGES you got this year.  Which VOICES (subs) have you heard from this year?   Say five THINGS YOU LEARNED this year. Visualize, feel your emotions toward, and list the names of people and animals important in this chapter of your life.  Draw a star  next to the names of PEOPLE WHO INSPIRED you.  Write a sentence after each name, say how you get along the person named.  After each name, note ANGER, QUARRELS, FIGHTS, LOVING, SEXUAL or other intense feelings with each person on your list.
