I'm often asked how the Transformation Game helps us and the simplest answer is by the way it reflects our life back to us. The Game forms a structure which reflects some of the most important Universal Laws of life. So when we play, our game reflects the consequences of choices we have yet to make in a kind of 'virtual reality'.
This time, let's consider choice.
How do you make your choices in your life? Do you toss a coin,
wave a pendulum, talk the options over with a friend or make
a list of the pros and cons? (And then torture yourself going
over them in your head at night?) The two squares on the Game
board which deal most directly with choice are Free Will and
Intuitive Flash. If an aspect of your growth involves how
you make choices, you're likely to land on these many times
through a Game until you have seen how these operate for you.
My own experience is that some of us are more comfortable
making choices from our Free Will and some from our Intuition.
It depends which part of us is given most authority around
decision making. It may also depend on the issue you are playing
on. Some of us are happy to leave certain matters in the hands
of our Intuition but feel other areas require use of our Will.
The greater the conflict between these two parts of ourselves,
the more we procrastinate and the more paralysed we become.
So next time you play the Game (or your life), take a look
at which part of you is making the decisions effectively -
and if there's conflict, (your Intuition says one thing and
your Will says another) then some inventive inner dialoguing
can break the cycle. Oh, and in case you think you can just
say 'pass' in life, don't forget that the Game always offers
the option not to decide - and you get feedback on that decision
The latest testimonial I received for the Game runs "Going
along for The Transformation Game was my 40th birthday present
for myself. It helped me use this natural reappraisal time to
get clearer about taking a new direction in my work, and a year
later I have started a new business, Managing Maternity, with
a partner to offer a new service for employers and women that
I truly believe in" Anna
I can still remember Anna's surprise at her Game outcome;
the last thing she expected was a business idea! But that's
the beauty of the Game and of Life - we start with an intention
and what we end up with might look nothing like what we imagined
but it fulfils our intention exactly.
Time and again I hear of enormous changes after a Game.
Sometimes they happen very quickly - even during the Game
itself - and sometimes they are small changes which result
in a very different outcome a year down the line.
One memorable moment of almost instant manifestation happened
for someone whose Game intention was around her current relationship.
As she moved along her Game Life Path she realised that one
of her blocks was an old relationship. She still had a lot
of furniture from the time they'd shared a home together stored
in a garage nearby and she realised this symbolised the old
ties she hadn't quite severed. For six months she'd been trying
unsuccessfully to get a skip to clear it all but delivery
was always cancelled or postponed. As she landed on a Miracle
Square she knew that she was ready to say goodbye, so she
did a short meditation visualising cutting the final ties.
As she passed the di to the next player the doorbell rang.
Rather surprised, as she wasn't expecting anyone, she opened
the door. Standing there was a man asking 'where shall we
put your skip?' He must still be wondering why everyone gasped
and then fell about laughing!
Another surprising outcome was someone whose intention was
around opening up to his spirituality. He felt he had no one
in his circle whom he could explore this with. On every level
of the Game he was faced with setbacks around unspoken resentment
and he revealed that he really disliked his boss but had never
asserted himself with him. By the third similar setback he
was laughing about it and, whilst he couldn't see the connection
to his intention, he really committed to standing up for himself.
On his first day back at work after the Game the situation
came to an immediate head. He changed his usual passive-aggressive
reaction and took a firm stand. Result? His boss handed in
his resignation and left within days. The connection? The
following week his new boss arrived who, outside the work
sphere, turned out to be a regular at men's retreats and has
since been a companion in spiritual exploration.
Many of us come to the Game when we really want to make a
leap of faith but we'd like confirmation of our decision or
more of an idea what the journey would look like - a kind
of roadmap. Others want to rehearse the consequences of taking
a particular path in virtual reality - something the Game
is so good for.
