I’ve created a hand-made prototype deck of 52 cards, with 52 questions designed to prompt you to examine and transform your thoughts, beliefs and stories about yourself and the world, and to experiment playfully with new ways of thinking and being.

 

Coming soon – with your help, I hope! – will be the printed deck that you and people around the world can buy and use.

 

Every question in the deck starts with “What would be possible for me if…?” For example:

  • I loved myself?
  • I surrendered?
  • I let go of all my excuses?
  • I didn’t always have to be right?
  • I believed I was worth it?
  • I took the first step?
  • I was grateful for everything I already have / do / am?
  • I trusted that it’s a friendly universe?
  • I knew I was enough?

 

When I say “What would be possible?”, I mean “What POSITIVE things would be possible?”, so please don’t answer “Someone might punch me on the nose!”

 

Simply by asking yourself the questions, imagining the possibilities and noticing how you might be sabotaging yourself with unhelpful thoughts, beliefs and stories, you’ll see more options and feel inspired to take bold action.

 

Use the card deck yourself – shuffle the deck and pick a card each morning to get a question to ponder throughout the day, or pick a card whenever you want some guidance about a challenge or opportunity in your life. Or if you’re a coach, healer, therapist, bodyworker or trainer, use the deck with your clients.

 

Here’s a short video I filmed in my friend Susie’s lovely garden, about how to use the cards – I’m using my hand-made prototype deck:

 

 

The deck is for you (and people like you) if:

  • you’re already familiar with and interested in personal/spiritual development and healing
  • you like books and card decks and workshops about personal/spiritual development and healing
  • you’re enthusiastic about doing the work – and play – of examining and transforming your old, limiting, unresourceful thoughts, beliefs, stories and behaviours
  • you’re willing to accept responsibility for your life
  • you sometimes catch yourself slipping back into your old bad habits and self-critical thoughts
  • you’re a coach, healer, therapist, bodyworker or trainer looking for a fun, simple tool to use with your clients – individually or in groups – so they heal and thrive

 

 And the deck is NOT for you if:

  • you’re a “Negative Nelly” who blames everyone and everything else for the state of your life
  • you automatically say “Yes, but you have to be realistic” to every suggestion
  • you’re not willing to do the work – and play – of examining and transforming your old, limiting, unresourceful thoughts, beliefs, stories and behaviours
  • you have no interest in the spiritual dimension of life
  • you expect a magic quick-fix pill for all your problems


Now  I’m asking for YOUR help, please!

 

I’m running a crowdFUNding campaign on the Hong Kong-based Next Chapter platform to raise the funds to get the first print run of the card deck designed and printed. The campaign will run for 45 days, until midnight on Friday November 24. My goal is to raise US$2,500 (about HK$19,500). Its an all-or-nothing deal – if I dont reach the target, I receive nothing.

 

So please support the campaign, and tell your friends!

 

Youll also be helping me to celebrate my 60th (yes, 60th!) birthday. AND you’ll be supporting a worthy cause, because I’ll donate 5% of the revenue from the crowdFUNding campaign to KELY Support Group, a non-government-funded organisation in Hong Kong that runs peer support, mentorship and leadership development programs for people aged 14-24, from Chinese-speaking, ethnic-minority and English-speaking backgrounds. Their tagline is: “empowering young people to reach their potential. I especially like that some of the programs involve drama and circus skills. And the mentoring program is even called “Seeing the Possibilities”.
