BLOCK BUSTER I

1. Ask yourself: What is my Heart’s Desire? What is the one thing I want to do, to be or to express that is currently being blocked?

2. Select or create two characters: One is your Heart’s Desire and the other is your block.

3. Begin a written dialogue by letting your non-dominant hand express your Heart’s Desire. Be as elaborate and detailed as you want.

4. Continue the dialogue by letting your dominant hand tell its story and why it blocks your desire. This exercise will help you clarify your true Heart’s Desire. Writing it out with your other hand makes it easier to sort out what you really want, not what others want for you. When you know what you really want and are willing to “go for it,” a shift in power takes place. The Inner Critic eventually becomes impotent: an emperor with no clothes. The pseudo-rational arguments of the Critic are brought to light and revealed for what they are: negative self-fulfilling prophecies.
