A quick Therapy: Making houses...

For my own children i make this some now and then... or for myself.

When things change in our lives I want to check, how the kids feel... I want to notice if they have become more aware of their pasts? Perhaps something old comes up, now we change something in our lifes... (As kids are growing up, all over sudden something old can now be made aware to them... and be a topic they think of, but don't tell. Cause they perhaps not even know people are alowed to discuss things. They could simply not tell you things, cause others don't... Etc. so this is a way to open conversations... And to work through situations...) 

 

When i draw these circles myself i draw a little boy or girl instead of the circle in the middle...

And write their name in the middle instead of the word me. 

But this circle will do... it's about what this circle does...

You can print out this page and fill it in for your own life changes... or with your child... to see what they will come up with..

This is meant to keep the conversation with yourself or with your child going...

 

Why is it named making houses?

The boxes outside the circle that are drawn in picture 2 and 3 I give rooftops... So they become a house...

With a child or for yourself you can be creative and let a child, or draw yourself rooftops while you chat aout this life circle...

It keeps you or them busy while chatting about life... So you dig in different topics while you draw, then if you would just fully aware talk...

It makes you a bit uncounscious...a bit dreamy... a bit more emotional... or etc... just to get into deeper layers of yourself...

It is about how you truly felt in some years about yourself and your life... 

Especially about the times you were taken care off by an institute, a daycare, a school etc...

All moving and changings in environments you can name... or simply things that changed your life...

For the better and the worse...

It shows the influences on you... or your child...

 

Step 1 Please write on the end of the lines attached to the big circles about situations that were important to you in those years... when you were a baby, a child or young adult... 

You fill the ends with chats on you, that you find an issue to chat about and to work through, or you ask your kids about a certain theme, like all schools you have been on... what did you like, what not... Or you ask about a certain situation at schools, all situations with other children... where under what roof, were they nice, where not so nice etc... 

Or a situation like moving to a new town, or new school... You ask what do you expect? And how were situations before...

 

Step 2 while chatting and writing please draw the rooftops, all the way you want... and perhaps ask why some roofs are filled with hearts and pink colours why some others all black with thunder etc...

 

Step 3 please write down all you wish and dream for. What do you expect of life?

so for a child the dreams are already filled in from a certain age like next year... depends on the age of the child... so past is written down and the future... How you expect it to be...

If you are over 30 please fill in the box 20-30 and perhaps all that happened after... below that box, or fill it in in that box 20-30... Perhaps write further in some empty book, you can fill. Perhaps you need simply more then this page...

 

Step 4. Please write some more aout what went wrong and right, in your life about these topics and as well as what you think should have een done about it... and by who? And about what you could do, or have done...

 

Step 5 Please write down what you will do for you, from now on. So your life changes for the better, and better... etc. And write down what you've already done for you... Perhaps after you gave your self a to do list, you come back on this topic, later on, after some while... And you can discuss what it was like to do something about this problem...
