Methods of “Life Is a Miracle” cards practice:
“What a wonderful day” Draw a card randomly. Turn it upside down and consider the image. Who is depicted on the card? If there are several characters, who is the central figure, and who are the supporting characters? What is the makeup of the main character? What does he think about, what does he want? What is his surrounding? What does the character do? What is his aim? Imagine that the characters depicted on the card celebrate something, what is celebration name? In case this holiday exists, how could you celebrate it? Who is the central figure of this celebration? How do you feel during this holiday, what would you do? Imagine most enjoyable or useful activity during this holiday, and become involved in it at the first opportunity.
“Johari Window” Choose two cards deliberately. The first one represents some aspects about yourself that are well know to you and other people around you at the moment, that is to say “Open Self” The second one represents some aspects about you that are known only to you, and people around you are not aware of them, that is to say “Hidden Self”. Then, turn the remaining cards upside down, shuffle, and draw two more of them. The third one represents a “Blind Spot”, some aspects about you that are known to others, while you are not aware of them. The fourth card represents “Unknown Self”, some aspects about you that are unknown both to you and to other people, and anyway, they exist. Consider the differences between these four cards. Try to find out the meaning of the fourth card.
“Different Selves” Choose four cards deliberately and five cards randomly. What cards are there?
- I as a Professional.
- I as a Creator of something new.
- I as an Owner.
- I as an Earner.
- I as a Parent.
- I as a Child.
- I as a Marital Partner (partner in relationship).
- I as a Friend.
- Something very important about me.
Describe the character of each card aloud drawing parallels between him and your own life. Draw conclusions about the similarities and differences between your incarnations.
“Wonderful gifts” Practice is performed in a pair or group. The cards are dealt. Three cards are dealt for a person in a pair and a number of cards for a person in a group depending on the number of participants (for example, in a group of five people five cards are dealt per person), or the cards are dealt by the method of dividing a deck into equal suits (ie, in a group of five people ten cards are dealt per person). Participants present gifts to each other in turns and provide some explanation, namely, what gift is presented, what emotion or ability are expressed, and why a certain gift is presented to a certain person in the opinion of a person who presents a gift. One gift corresponds to one card. One card is left as a gift to yourself. Extra cards in this practice are used for diversity and freedom in gift choosing. Every participant who has received a gift explains to a person who presents a gift the importance and relevance of his gift.
“A wonderful message” Choose a subject for a message that you would like to receive. Draw a card randomly. Consider the actions of the characters on this card and the method of their actions. These are the symbols of your state of affairs in chosen field at the moment. Then draw another card. The heroine or the hero of this card has some fantastic ability that could help you to solve your problems. Ask yourself whether you have this ability, if not, whose abilities you could rely on in order to improve the situation in this field. What message is sent to you by the character on the card? What would you like to change when you receive this message?
“A wonderful story” Choose a subject causing painful experience to you. Draw cards successively and make up a curative story for yourself, as follows:
1 A card: it’s you, a heroine or a hero in this fairy tale.
2: What has happened? What trouble has happened to the heroine?
3 A card: where did the heroine go?
4 A card: What helper did she meet on her way? What magic did he use to help her?
