A Visual Aid for Knowing your TRUE SELF and Healing Your Feelings
Know your Light, Shine it Bright
"The question is not what you look at that matters, it's what you see." -Henry David Thoreau
"What is essential is invisible to the eye" Antoine de Saint-Exupery-The Little Prince
"Everything waits to be noticed" Art Garfunkel
The YOUniverse Feeling Wheel and Self-Leadership tool along with its companion storybook, The Big Bright BallAnswers the Calland guidebook, A Guide to Integrating theYouniverse in Therapy, takes the essential, yet invisible inner world of thoughts and emotions, our feelings, and makes them visible to the eye where they can be helped and healed by our loving Self or true YOU.
For children, their feelings (or problem they face)) can be helped, healed (or solved) by their own Big Bright Ball Self with the help and support of their Parents Big Bright Ball Self.
Each YOUniverse features one's "always already happy", "Big Bright Ball" Self or Big YOU (large central sphere) and a multitude of "Parts"(Colors) or smaller You's(smaller attachable colored orbs). The Colors can represent one's painful thoughts, emotions, behaviors, physical sensations and memories. The goal of YOUniverse assisted therapy(or parenting, teaching, coaching, mentoring) is to help you help yourself, your children, students, clients, team, mentees, achieve inner harmony by experiencing one's capacity for Self-Loving Leadership through a process in which everyone comes to recognize and use their center-core Self, their YOU, to See, Understand, and Heal the Colors(Parts) in pain. FEEL, REVEAL, HEAL.
Reading the companion Big Bright Ball Storybook helps clients to know their Self-loving nature, playfully encouraging them to make that pivotal "You-turn" inward. For parents, offering the YOUniverse as a "Feelings Wheel" "Mind Map" or "Choice Wheel" becomes a natural and effective Conversation-Starter and/or Time-IN Solution with which children are helped to care and speak for their feelings and resource their parents to problem solve.
