- Basic Intention
- Desired Objectives
- Tangible Output
- Existing Restraints
- Ideal State of Affairs
- Actual State of Affairs
- Available Resources
- Overall Plan
- Detail Projects
- Daily Actions
2. Organizational Chart $
Work with the client to make an organizational chart of her duties and activities. Split things up and order them by time and location and subject and so forth. Get her away from any idea of just being overwhelmed with too much to do. Get her to step back and look at it, and then work out the best systematic approach for dealing with what is going on.
3. Do it now $
Go through the person's personal area with her. For example her work desk, or her living room Coach her into handling anything she runs into. She needs to either do it, file it, or trash it. Do this until her area is all clear and she has a sense of revitalized space.
4. Messy -
Look for fixed ideas about disorder. Unfix anything you find.
"What is the advantage of being messy?"
"What is right about disorder?"
5. Life Inventory #
Have the client make an inventory of resources she has available in her life. Friends, associates, assets, subjects, money, good-will, etc. Have her first of all realize how many resources she actually does have. Secondly have them be listed and ready for doing something with. Let her get the idea that she has all these resources available and start thinking about what to do with them.
6. Purpose -
Have the client find or state her purpose in life. Get it stated in terms of perceptions and basic qualities. Not just "I want to be rich", but what exactly is it she wants to experience in terms of perceptions. And what qualities is she after. Is it a sense of abundance, of security, or whatever. And what does that quality feel like.
"What are you trying to do with your life?"
7. Polarities -
Look for any orderly/disorderly type of polarities. Like, is she really organized in certain circumstances, but really disorganized in other. Do polarity integration on what you find. Or, if parts seem to be missing, do soul retrieval of those parts.
8. In-charge -
Work over the subject of being in-charge versus just following along. Look for polarities, or limiting beliefs, or fixed ideas, etc. Resolve whatever you find.
9. Decisions #
Have the client make decisions about something in her life. Help her overcome any obstacles in doing so. Reframe her out of the idea that she needs a lot of things before she can make decisions. Train her in making decisions, even without having the full story. Get her to just keep making decisions. Not robotic decisions that don't mean anything, but actual decisions. "I will read the paper tomorrow", "I will clean up the closet when I get home", etc.
"Make a decision"
10. Managing Chaos -
The world is never perfectly in order. One needs to be able to make decisions and manage things even under chaotic conditions. Have the client practice that under any kind of conditions. You can use imagination processing to play with the idea. Seeing herself making decisions under imperfect, chaotic conditions. Becoming comfortable with chaos.
11. Reframe Chaos -
Talk about the idea of things being chaotic or a lot of stuff happening. Reframe it from being a problem to being a great help. The more that is happening, the more likely it is that things will fall into place the way one wants them. There is more potential for getting things to happen if there is a lot of activity. One puts out the intention of what one wants and the universe crystallizes around it.
12. Alternatives $
Look at all the points where the person is at effect, tied in, controlled, trapped by society, tradition, monopolies etc. Find alternatives in each one. Visualize how it would be to have alternatives and be free of the control. Set a direction towards sovereignty. Do imagination processing or actually work on rounding up workable alternatives.
13. Facing #
Sit the person down in her area and simply have her look at it. Just exercise the ability to sit down and be there without having to do anything. The is the foundation for being able to do something. First one needs to be able to be there. Have her do it on time, and notice if she has reactions to sitting there.
14. Interaction #
Have the client walk around and in her area and touch whatever is there. Let her reach out and touch each thing that is there, and then let go. You can point out each thing in turn for her. The idea is to be comfortable in the space and feeling good about interacting with each thing that is there. This is not something to take for granted.
15. Domain Activity Alignment $
Do an activity alignment for each domain of the person's life. Organize the domains.
16. Domain Communication $
If it is a fairly advanced client, have her communicate with the gestalt of each domain. Find out what its state is, what it needs and wants, and so forth.
