INVOKING A POSITIVE QUALITY
Purpose: Use this exercise if you seem stuck in a negative way of behaving, feeling, or thinking and want to open up to a new possibility.
First, clearly define the negative characteristic you are seeking to transform. For example, let’s say it is Extravagance. Let the feeling of Extravagance come forth, and feel it completely. Discover its essential quality.
Now, contemplate what the opposite of this trait would be and give it a name. For example, Simplicity. (Remember, no one can assign you this opposite quality; you must come up with this yourself.)
The essence of Simplicity, an archetype, must now be planted in your consciousness, preparing to manifest itself. Close your eyes for a moment, and see this happening in your mind. . . .
Take some time to meditate on this new quality and feel it entering into your mind . . . your emotional body . . . and now your physical body. . . . Become Simplicity!
As Simplicity, let yourself turn whatever comes in spontaneously, and place it in your heart. . . .
Let the symbol speak to you from within your own mind and heart. . . .
Once you feel your focus is exact and the message is clear, imagine yourself walking around during a day in your ordinary life, utilizing this quality. . . . See what happens. . . .
Now, slowly, still retaining all that goes on inside, simultaneously be aware that you are right here in this regular world. . . . Open your eyes and come fully back into the room you are sitting in.
You may want to reflect for a while, write something, or draw a picture.
For your aid in this practice, here are some of the ideal qualities that emerge most often from persons using this technique:
To add potency to taking on any new quality or behavior, here are a few suggestions:
1. Begin talking about this new aspect of yourself to your friends, declaring your intent to develop it in your character. This grounds the thought in reality, giving the unconscious mind a chance to believe it and to cause it to happen.
2. Begin acting as if you possess this quality—imagine the archetype Simplicity overshadowing you, doing things that represent its nature. You will find yourself behaving differently, as if by magic. This really works!
3. Write the word Simplicity every day for a while, placing it somewhere in your room where you can see it, to be reminded of it. Or draw a picture of its symbol, keeping it close by.
& now I’m literally gonna go eat some spätzle.
