How I use these Blob Tree Materials - take a look at the
Mental Heath Tree above::
I ask people to 'put their own oxygen mask on first' by conducting this exercise in a small group of three - usually the best number.
So I am asking you here now!
I would ask each person to choose a Blob that feels most positive and why?
Everyone can read the Blobs even young children.
We can read the Blobs because, like use, we speak volumes through our facial expression and body language - WHAT WE ARE NOT SAYING !!
I answer my own question first every time.
This sets the tone for each question - openness - honesty - vulnerability.
Try it NOW yourself - place a finger on the Blob above re my question - the physical touch connects with our emotions better.
Next question for you.
Touch the Blob which best describes yourself in the worst state you have been in ANY TIME in your life? AND say why - this 'why' is important because there is a story here to be told - maybe never been told!
I now choose the one which is chained down by the feet. I recall a time in my life when I was locked in emotionally. I was living in fear, scared because of violent people in my life & community - working with them as a Youth Worker. I was constantly riddled with indigestion - churned up. I was surviving not living.
Getting over this is a long story, and I am still on it but, I first of all had to change my way of thinking/believing/working ......... you will have to read my books from 1985 onwards ....... but briefly, the inner change helped me to released to be a different person - it was the time in my life when I started to say #YouAreBeautiful ..............
Try your answer to my second question NOW - even if you are on your own.
It is always more real/powerful when we do this with one or two others.
If you have done this - if you do this ....... you have had an EXPERIENCE of sharing your own vulnerability which is a massive step.
Once done means it can be done in the future with people who you trust.
See www.BlobTree.com for a range of tools such as the BEREAVEMENT TREE which helps you to talk about a personal LOSS - good for us to do even if your loved one passed away in the distant past.
There is also ones about School, Education, Feelings, Sports, Gardens, Vehicles ...... all about helping people to share themselves.
Get Blobbing - experience life in all it's wholeness ....... BECOMING.
