Fantasy

Tiger 3 was highly abstract, highly intellectual.  Now free your imagination.  Let fantasies frow freely.  The ability to use both is very powerful.

Albert Einstein

The gift of fantasy has meant more to me

than my talent for absorbing positive knowledge.

 
 
 

Carl Jung

Without this playing with fantasy

no creative work has ever yet come to birth.

The debt we owe to the play of the imagination is incalculable.

Play with your brain waves.  Play with the world of imagination and fantasy.  Increase joy, creativity and adventure in your life.

 

Alpha and Beta---preparation

The fantasies---ride upon the wind

 

 

ALPHA AND BETA

Preparation

Your brain waves are rapid and called BETA when you are wide awake and solidly in touch with the physical world.

 

As you relax and use your imagination, your awareness of the physical world drifts away and the frequency of the waves slow and move toward ALPHA.

 

Much creative work is done toward the ALPHA end of the scale, like when you play the piano, paint a rose, or formulate a new theory.  Best go BETA when you evaluate your piano playing, painting, and theory.

____________________

 

If alone read and follow the instructions.

If in a group have someone read them for everyone.

 

Look around the room, listen to the sounds around you, feel your body.

Place yourself solidly in the here and now.

When solidly in the physical world,

SAY the word BETA in your mind or out loud.

Repeat a few times to get a strong association.

 

If your preferred modality is visual,

SEE BETA in your mind or on a piece of paper to create the association.

____________________

 

If alone, read the instructions.

Then close your eyes, relax, and follow them.

If in a group have someone read them for everyone.

 

Close your eyes and relax.

Imagine sitting at the table eating your favorite food.

Taste and smell the delicious food.

When the experience of sitting at the table is strong,

SAY ALPHA a few times to get a strong association.

____________________

 

Open your eyes and energize.

Solidly return to the physical world of here and now.

SAY BETA a few times.

____________________

 

If alone, read the instructions.

Then close your eyes, relax, and follow them.

If in a group have someone read them for everyone.

 

Close your eyes and relax.

Remember a pleasant experience from your past.

When the experience is strong,

SAY ALPHA a few times.

Open your eyes and energize.

If alone, read the instructions.

If in a group have someone read them for everyone.

 

Close your eyes and relax.

Imagine listening to your favorite music

or watching a scene from your favorite movie.

When the experience is strong,

SAY ALPHA a few times.

____________________

 

Open your eyes and energize.

Solidly return to the physical world of here and now.

SAY BETA a few times.

____________________

Practice using the Power Words, BETA and ALPHA, to move the waves of your brain back and forth along the scale.

 

Spend the week playing around with your brain waves.  Notice the differences when you make love, watch a movie, listen to music, dance, draw a picture, etc.

 

Best to always return to BETA when you finish exploring.  You don't want to get run over, mugged, or sent to the funny farm.  And for sure don't go ALPHA when you need to attend to the world around you.  Like, go full BETA when you drive a car.

 

Yes, yes, so obvious,

but with so many eager, hungry lawyers around

I'm not taking any chances.

 

WHAT DID YOU FIND?

 

 

THE FANTASIES

If in a group take turns reading the script.  You'll soon become familiar with the best cadence and pacing.  The relaxation instructions will move you to ALPHA.

 

If alone, relax and go ALPHA and have the experience as you read the script.  There is creative reading as well as creative writing.  Or, read all the way through the script.  Then go back to the beginning and become more and more peaceful and relaxed as you read the relaxation instructions and move to ALPHA.  Then when you come to the beginning of the adventure, close your eyes and flow with the experience.

 

Go Zen

Quickly glance at the adventures and go with the one that most attracts you.

1.  The House of Golden Lanterns

2.  Float down the river

3.  Float up into the sky

4.  Back from the future

5.  Change your past

6.  Return to your childhood

7.  Anything goes

THE HOUSE OF GOLDEN LANTERNS

Come to the tea house as often as you like.  Visit with family, friends, and interesting strangers.   Or perhaps you would just like moments alone, sitting by the lily pond---enjoying the refreshing tea and delicious cookies.

ALPHA

____________________

You are standing in front of a bright red gate.

There are golden letters across the top.

 

THE HOUSE OF GOLDEN LANTERNS

 

You walk through the gate onto a pebble path, into a Japanese garden.

 

Past Pine and Cedar,

 

Bushes and flowers.

 

On a pebble path

past a small waterfall

sounds of splashing water.

 

Small squirrels run back and forth.

 

Birds fly through the air.

 

 

To a tea house on a lily pond.

Golden lanterns hang from the eves.

Slowly swinging back and forth in the gentle breeze.

 

So beautiful.

 

A young girl greets you.

“We welcome you to The House of Golden Lanterns."

 

She takes you to a table overlooking the lily pond.

Bows and leaves as you sit down.

 

Ducks swim among the water lilies.

 

Birds fly back and forth across the pond.

 

 

The young girl returns bringing tea and cookies.

“The tea and cookies are very special and will deeply rejuvenate your mind and deeply rejuvenate your body.”

 

You eat the nourishing cookies and drink the refreshing tea.

 

She will bring more whenever you like.

 

Ducks swim by.  Birds skim the water for bugs.

 

So peaceful and beautiful.

 

 

Perhaps a friend or an interesting stranger will come and join you.

Perhaps a member of your family.

Or perhaps you prefer a quiet time alone, sitting by the lily pond.

 

 

 

 

It is almost time to come back.

 

Back to the here and now.

Watching the water flow off into the distance.

 

Go down to the small boat underneath the bridge.

 

Climb in.

Push off from the shore.

 

You float away.

Float away down the river.

 

 

You float away down the river to a special place.

You are old now, but healthy and alert.

 

You are at the House of Golden Lanterns, sitting at your favorite table.

 

Look out over the pond as you sip the refreshing tea and eat the nourishing cookies.

 

Think back over your life.

 

Remember the failures and the triumphs.

 

The sorrows and the joys.

 

The ugly and the beautiful.

 

What information or advice would you like to give your younger self?

What information or advice would be useful and important?

CHANGE YOUR PAST

We all have core memories.  Moments of love and joy.  Moments of sorrow, fear, regret, anxiety, guilt, anger that flow into the present from memories of things we did or did not do, or of things that did or did not happen to us.

 

If you have an unpleasant memory that is unduly influencing your life, and is no longer needed as a useful lesson, here is a powerful way to reduce its influence.

ALPHA

____________________

Go back to the start of what you did or what was done to you that still bothers you.

 

Now imagine you did something different at that moment, something that will create a better outcome.

 

In your imagination, play out what then happens.

 

 

 

 

It is almost time to come back.

Back to the here and now.

 

____________________

It is time.   Open your eyes and energize.  Solidly return to the physical world of here and now.  Look around the room.   BETA

 

Stand up, move around.  Make sure you are solidly back to the here and now.

 

If in a group, share.  If alone you might want to write down your experience.

 

You now have two memories of the same event.  Your brain could care less which actually happened and which you just created.  The memory that will now affect your life is the one you choose to keep alive, through the attention and vitality you give it.

 

Don’t worry about faking reality.  You fake it all the time.  It is very unlikely the event that created the unpleasantness actually occurred the way you remember.

 

Every time you remember what happened your brain changes a little bit here, a little bit there.  It’s like the old parlor game where a secret is whispered to one of the guests who then whispers it to the next, resulting in a very different secret at the end of the line.

 

WHAT DID YOU FIND?

 

 

 

 

Paul

I didn’t do the Adventure but I checked with family and found we all had a very different story about why dad left.  Again, I maybe took it too personally.  Maybe it wasn’t me.  No, damn it, it was not me.  Too personal again.  Maybe start creating a few memories where I didn’t think it was me.

 

Jennifer

I undid all those times I played poor little me by shifting into the wild one.  Well some at least.  Probably didn’t have to but whatever.  My wild one is toned down a lot.  Don’t need to overdo it anymore.
