Sometimes the Sage needs to get a bit more active!
Of course, you can comment... and if you like it, LIKE IT :-)
One of the keys to getting anyone to ‘step up’ to significantly improve their performance in any area of their life is to help get them into the character or energy of a more suitable archetype. In this instance David had only ever been used to presenting himself in his primary archetypal expression – the Sage.
First we explored what it would be like to go even deeper into the expression of the Sage. This helped to highlight the
and provided a stronger contrast for the new archetype we were about to explore.
The quickest way to invoke the Warrior archetype is to provide a target, a goal and some kind of *resistance* to overcome. In this instance, the punch glove provided all we needed.
See how quickly John was able to access a very, very different kind of energy by this simple act. As he took action the whole room supported him so that he’d feel comfortable taking physical action – in fact, he probably didn't want to disappoint them which would have given him even more of a reason to show himself capable.
So, ask yourself, how have you been approaching that specific challenge you’re facing right now? Has your approach been effective? If not, then ask which of the archetypes is likely to help you the most. Then get into that character.

After a wonderful conversation with a friend - when we were discussing what we *had* achieved in the past year, and what we still *longed* to achieve, I headed back home. The journey back took 5 hours instead of 90 minutes because of 'engineering works' that impacted a major part of the rail network (funny how they plan these for holidays... :-)
With my head still absorbing things we'd discussed, it quite naturally and effortlessly distilled itself into the poem below.
Best read slowly, quietly, with a slight smile... to the music of Vaughan Williams.
I paint the scene with my eyes
I see what I create
I create what I see
It’s not all there is
But for me, it is to be
This has become my reality
I see, I speak, I walk the path
I plan, I build
I work, I laugh
And what I believe I see
And what I see I receive
It happens first inside of me
Not empty dreams
But a force of ingenuity
That forges my reality
For everyone to see
For what everyone can see
Started inside of me.
