The Game begins as the Players seat themselves around the Game
board. The board has four identical Life Paths mapped out on
it and you will be seated in front of yours. Each life path contains the same options. What will make the difference is your intention, your choices and what you decide to do with any pain or awareness that you accumulate.
Each player in
turn explains and commits to their personal Playing Focus, for
example, 'I intend to gain insight
on how I can clear stress associated with my job'
or 'I intend to determine how I can
increase my financial prosperity'. For more examples
please go to Game
Intentions, Issues and Outcomes
Each player has a personal
Unconscious Envelope which they then fill (without looking) from three of the four card decks by rolling a di, while holding their attenton on the focus they're bringing to the Game. These
card decks include:
Your personal strengths, called Insights,
Your personal challenges, called Setbacks,
And then your inner qualities, called
Angels, for example
The message from this Angel is: 'Face
what is in front of you squarely and fearlessly. Discover the
truth held in your heart and act on it.' (From the
Angel Book by Kathy Tyler and Joy Drake.)
You are now ready to be born and start
on your Life Path. All Players begin in the Source in the
centre of the board and you roll the di until you land on
an Angel Square when you are 'born' into the Game. At this
point you draw your Guardian Angel from your Personal Unconscious
Envelope and you are given your first, Physical Level Scorecard.Your
path can take you through four levels: Physical (red), Emotional
(orange), Mental (yellow) and Spiritual (purple). Keep in
mind that your personal breakthrough could come at any level,
it all depends on your Focus.
Your Life's Journey - Moving Through the Levels
As you move through the levels you
are processing cards from your Unconscious Envelope and dealing
with whatever comes up for you. As you roll the di you can
land on any one of eleven Life Squares on your path including
Service, Depression, Appreciation, Blessings, Angels, Setbacks,
Insights, Transformation and Miracle which may bring with
them tokens representing both pain and awareness. On certain
squares you can test your Intuition and exercise your Free
Will choice with clear, and sometimes dramatic, consequences.
As you make your choices on each square you gradually empty
and process the cards in your Unconscious Envelope, thereby
working through the Setbacks that may be blocking you from
resolving your issue using the Insights and Angels to help
you shift perspective and clarify new solutions and directions,
so you get back into the flow.
Pain and Awareness
Pain in the Game is released using
Awareness, which you gain through Insights, Appreciation and
being of Service. As you track your decisions behaviour patterns
can become very obvious. For example one Player landed on
Depression three times in six hours and was 'rescued' by the
other Player twice. The third time she refused to be rescued
and decided to really look at the patterns that had led her
into pain. On her next turn the light bulbs came on and she
had a huge shift in understanding and commitment to a new
direction. She then threw the di and landed on a Miracle!
The other Player also decided to stop rescuing others and
start supporting herself more.
Your Game is over when you have emptied
your Unconscious Envelope, released any pain you may have
and filled your Spiritual Level scorecard. It is rare to finish
in a day, so a time is set at the start when you will stop
rolling the di. Like life, finishing is unimportant - it is
how you play the Game that matters.
It is at this point you review your
Game and move into a Next Step Process. The Game review can
provide a lot of Insights. Which level did you spend most
time on? For example a Player whose Focus was to release blocks
to expressing her Creativity spent most of her Game on the
Physical Level. It turned out the key to her block was changing
her nutrition. This enabled her to come off anti-depressants,
get in touch with her natural vitality and she has now started
a painting course. What stops you moving up a level? For one
overly giving player whose scorecard overflowed with awareness
it was the lack of a Service token. When he landed on the
Service Square and was finally able to say 'I choose to serve
myself', he moved up not one level but two.
Closing the Game - Next Steps
After the review there is a 'Next Step'
process, whereby you clarify the immediate actions required
to achieve your Playing Focus. This can be a small step or
a large one and you are asked to nominate a support person
to ensure you follow up. For you it may be making a phone
call, having a 'difficult' conversation, sharing a secret,
enrolling on a course, making an appointment to see a financial
adviser or updating your CV. Whatever your steps may be, you
will leave with the energy to stop procrastinating and feeling
stuck and with resources to act for change.
Every Game is as unique as your life, with all the tears, love,
laughter, healing, tenderness and fun that that can involve.
