I’ve created a hand-made prototype deck of 52 cards, with 52 questions for you to ask yourself, to prompt you to examine and transform your thoughts, beliefs and stories about yourself and the world, and to experiment playfully with new, more resourceful ways of thinking and being. The printed decks will be available in early 2018.

 

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, an unhelpful habit or an opportunity in your life. Or if you’re a coach, healer, therapist, bodyworker or trainer, use the deck with your clients.

 

Heres a short video I filmed in my friend Susies lovely garden, about how to use the cards – Im 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

 

Thanks to my successful crowdFUNding campaign, the printed deck will be available in early 2018. And even though the campaign is officially finished, you can still order a deck, and even a one-on-one Skype call with me, via the campaign page at Next Chapter.

 

I’ll donate 5% of the proceeds from the crowdFUNding campaign and any future sales of the card deck to KELY Support Group, an organisation here in Hong Kong that runs peer support, mentorship and leadership development programs for people aged 14-24.

 

Events

 

I occasionally run a “Life is a Playground of Possibilities” live public workshop in which we use the card deck, some meditative/mindfulness exercises, and some improv games. Stay tuned for news of the next workshop.
