What repertoire of responses do you use when faced with someone’s pain?
What if a friend is going through a painful experience that’s different from anything you’ve experienced and you don’t know what to do?
Maybe a client can’t express their pain and the consultation seems stuck?
When the person in pain has limited awareness or is unconscious about what is going for them, then you normal repertoire of helping may not be enough. If you can’t relate to what is going on for others then you need help from the level where you are both connected.
The help you need is always inside.
Your repertoire of what to say, or what listening tool to use, may have reached a limit but your inner connection to love and compassion is always available. In one sense your repertoire is never limited but you may not always be able to access it.
Some interesting questions are:
Is there a present wisdom that you can tap into now, that is uniquely appropriate for this present moment?
Are there some painful thoughts in your mind that need to be healed?
Maybe the other person’s healing is your own as well?
When you’re in situations involving others, sometimes it’s easy to be present and receive inner guidance about what to say or do. At other times you’re faced with your own inner confusion or fear and then you need inner help.
The content of the Miracle Choice games came from recording the times when I was able to be present to myself and others, and the times I wasn’t. So the insights in the game will meet people where they are and gently guide them to their own inner connection.
So if you’re with someone who needs your help and you also need time to connect to yourself, you can play the game in the meantime. The healing in the game is for you and the other person even if you are acting as a facilitator and not actually playing. It would have to be that way if we’re all connected.
So get the Pocket Edition of the Miracle Choice Game as part of your “inner repertoire.”

This week I did an audio recording and not a video of insights to go along with the blog as an experiment. Any feedback is welcome if you prefer audios.
