We have worked our way through Roberta Allen’s entire The Playful Way to Knowing Yourself and it’s time for our final review! You know the drill by now…
- In the last 15 exercises, did any of your answers surprise you? Why?
2. Is there any exercise that felt more charged than others? If you’d like, carry on with that post and share your additions with us.
3. Were there any exercises that felt incomplete to you? If so, complete them now. Stop when your energy is spent. Then please share them with us.
4. What insights about yourself (if any) came to light in these last 15 exercises?
You have come to the end of the book, but you haven’t come to the end of this process. Now is the time to consider how to use what you’ve learned about yourself. Answer the following questions.
- Who might benefit from what you have discovered?
2. What actions might you take now that you wouldn’t have taken before?
3. What can you now accept about yourself?
4. What else would you like to know about yourself?
5. Now that you’ve tapped into your energy, can you think of ways to tap into it more often? Are there thoughts, such as “it’s not serious,” or images from this book or your imagination, that you can focus your attention on, to help you feel more alive?
Just because you’ve done the exercises once doesn’t mean you can’t go back and start all over again. The same exercises will elicit different responses at different times — all of which may be true. Your responses may change with your moods, with the weather, with the seasons, with time. As the Greek philosopher Heraclitus once said, “You can’t step in the same river twice.”
Now just to let you know, we’ll be starting a new book in September. There will be a couple fill-in prompts in the meantime. So don’t get comfy because our inner work is NOT done!
In the meantime, thanks to everyone who has been a part of this challenge. Sharing this adventure with you has been so enriching…
