If you're following along, you have already re-visited your childhood, teen years & young adult. More than likely you've located the origins of some current day issues & have started to release or edit them. Now it's time to catch up with yourSelf, focusing in on your more mature & current adult years. Sometimes it's easier to practice regression than to work in one's current life, but here we'll go about this review in the same way as the others, by detaching & observing yourSelf from the outside position. Perhaps you might like to enter your Higher or Therapeutic Self, making it easier to forgive yourSelf as you face your reality. The above box contains some suggestions for a self-review. Of course, you & your own subconscious mind may suggest others, but do know that you are completely self-responsible for your self-care and health. Each of you working through this assessment will be playing different mind pictures, depending on where you are in your own life and experiences. If you could all meet, you would find that you have much in common. We all seem to get lost in the same places.
When we haven't been awake, things tend to stay the same. Depending on your age and life experiences, you might like to work with each decade separately. You can start at any age you choose. You will intuitively know where to begin. Take time to look carefully at your subconscious book covering these years. Note your health states, any illnesses or surgery. The adult health pictures are very important ones as they often show tendencies towards either continued health or illness. Look at your decisions related to nutrition, exercise and stress management. Can you spot any self-care negligence?
As you move up the time-line perform a new body scan. The body and mind are always changing, so it is important to stay in close contact so as not to miss anything. Scanning through different years allows you to experience these changes. The subconscious mind often takes this as a quest for more information. Information is Key, for without it one cannot see and therefore cannot change.
• Find an area where you changed and locate the motivators.
• What kinds of things tend to get in your way?
• Make some detailed notes about what you see and feel as you review this part of
• Once again, if this were a book you were writing, is there anything you would
• How would you edit it? Be very specific.
• Has any additional information been provided that would apply to your earlier
years? If so, go back and make additional notes in the area above.
TIME LINE WORK PAYS OFF
Working on the time-line allows you to see more clearly. Everything we need is found inside us. Let's practice with just one example of the power of your subconscious mind. There is a book on the library shelf about the last time you felt physically well. Take a moment to deeply relax and notice that your subconscious librarian knows where that book is located. Observe the effortlessness in locating the book. Notice that you can enjoy observing the lack of struggle. The book is given to you now, so go ahead and take some time to review and describe some of the important details.
• Notice your age and what was going on in your life at this time.
• Who was there with you?
• What stressors were present and how were they handled?
• Have a look at your internal and external motivation system in action?
Later in this book you will be learning how to interview your emotional states. This is a good time to practice this, so here is a short exercise. Relax deeply as before and summon your subconscious librarian. Ask to meet with a member from your internal motivation team and one from your external team. See them in front of you and now go ahead and ask them some direct questions such as what do you need to be so successful? Find out how you can summon them in the future and what they would need from you. Sometimes you will be given this information right in the moment, but other times the answers will come as free thoughts known as free associations.
Relax again and ask the librarian to bring the book about the last time you felt really emotionally well. Once again notice how easily this is accomplished. It's almost as if the book finds the librarian. Open the book, noting that you are the author and take some time to review it and describe some of the details. Notice the particular time of your life and what sorts of experiences were playing out. It's interesting to note that emotional wellness is not only experienced when one is free from stress. Often times it is when one has been successful at accomplishing something of importance. Relax into the scenes that are brought to your consciousness.
You might want to relax into these files several different times, rather like canoeing through small waves. This type of repetition often brings deeper awareness to the surface. Try it. Remember what you experience in one moment can be very different from what the next moment has to bring. Decide to be a true inner explorer and expect to receive important gifts. You will not be disappointed for the Law of Expectation has been well proven through the ages.
