Living the Ancient Child

I've finished basic recording for the
 Ancient Child meditation, and it
will be available the minute I have
the chance to edit. But meanwhile,
 I wanted to give away as much of
 it as I possibly can. After laying
down the basic structure, I decided
to use a non-linear approach to
unifying the inner and outer worlds.

To align your goals, actions, emotions,
values, beliefs, resources and emotions
 creates a kind of power most people
 have never experienced, and I
want that very attainable reality
to be available to each and every
one of you.

So...the purpose of the Ancient
 Child is to specifically concentrate
 on aligning your passion and your
 deepest values and core principles.
When you measure your day-to-day
 actions as if you are walking a
path between birth and death,
with BOTH your childhood
 dreams and death-bed values
alive in every action, every word...
we begin to align that internal
world. It is key to the "I.D.E.A."
concept, becoming a "human
laser" in the sense that your
brakes are off, you can go full
 steam ahead, running "downhill"
with no fear of tripping and falling.
So to do this, you begin by playing
 a game of "Twenty Questions."
   There is nothing special about
 any single question, but they
 have been chosen quite carefully
 and deliberately, and together
they link together your inner
world in a unique way. we go. The "Twenty
 Questions" are to be used this way:

1) Select a goal that will transform
 your life for the better.
2) Use a journal, and write your
 answer to the question(s).
3) Then...visualize your child
 self. Ask HIM (or her) the
 same question concerning your intent.
Note: is there a difference between
 what you say, and what your "child" says?
4) Then...visualize your Elder
self, beyond ego and ambition,
 clear on the meaning of your
life whether YOU understand
 it currently or not. Ask HIM
 the same question. Note: is
there a difference between
what you say, and what your
 "Elder" said? How about
between "child" and "elder"?

5) Get out of the way, and
allow "Child" and "Elder"
to speak together of these
things. Stay out of the
discussion as much as
possible. Write down as
 much as you can.

6) BONUS: Bring an appropriate
 role model into the discussion,
implanting at the appropriate
Chakra (for instance: if your goal
is to find a Soul Mate, find a role
 model who has been happily
 married long enough to enjoy
 their grandchildren together.
Visualize this person in your
 heart-space) and let them take
 part in the discussion. Record
the results.

7) ADVANCED BONUS: Visualize
 yourself in your inner mirror.
Transform your gender--flow from
male to female, or female to male.
 See yourself as you would have
been, if born into the different
gender energy. Ask your questions.
 Repeat with your child self. Repeat
with your elder self

Get it?'s your first question:
1) a) If you go full-tilt boogie
 toward your goal, what is the
 worst that could happen?
b) Exactly how do you know
what you think you know
about this situation?
c) How do you know you are
 correct? What is your
error-checking procedure here?

Oops. Is that four questions?
Maybe. But they all relate to a
single issue. Ask them of your
intention, and get commentary
 from your conscious mind,
 your child and elder selves.
If necessary, write their answers
 with your non-dominant hand.

Get ready for a bit of magic.
