How can the ChancesToChange board game be of service to you?

Posted by on Apr 1, 2020 in Chances to change

We are listening to your unique experience and how you give meaning to what is happening. We are shapeshifting a field of fear into a flow of joy, ease and love. These are special times. What is your current story? What is underneath the Coronavirus outbreak? What might really be happening? What is the essence of the Corona outbreak? Maybe it is the choice either to go for fear or to go for joy, ease and love; the choice to stay in survival mode or to go for new opportunities.  Fear brings more fear and limitations on all levels of our being. Joy, ease and love create health and the possibility of new beginnings.  What if we experience the Coronavirus outbreak as a flow where we can choose which forms with their related functions we create. What will we cover in this article: Experiencing the Coronavirus outbreak as a flowThe major players of the board gameWhat gives you strength and power in these timesThe dance between our small self and our true self Experiencing the Coronavirus outbreak as a flow Flow, form and function is the movement in all of existence. If we are willing to consider the possibility that the Coronavirus outbreak is a flow of life force we open up to many possible choices with regard to the forms and functions that are able to unfold. We give our self the possibility to be responsive to what happens in our life and to live with ease and joy. Yes there is the fear and yes there is the reality of people dying. It is important that we don’t underestimate the fear in the collective field, it is dense and sticky. It is invisible and contagious. Our small selves are very susceptible to fear. Each of us has his or her unique way in which our small self processes fear. Some of us experience panic attacks, some of us try to control, others stay calm and try to fix, analyse, rationalise. Some will become angry or blame. These are all survival modes related to, and triggered by, the field of fear. There are a lot of ramifications caused by a collective field paralysed by fear or being governed by fear.  Fear has no power in itself, but when so many people, organisations and systems invest in fear, it becomes overwhelming. We are allowing fear to have authority over us, creating a loop of fear. The only solution is to move our attention from fear-based choices towards our true self, aligning us to what really matters to us. What is the underlying message of the outbreak, what is it bringing us? If we consider this outbreak as a flow of life force, we are able to see it as part of the intelligent design of the earth and all life on it and as part of our evolution. This is the...

A Gateway to Break Free from the Powerful Practice of Reviews!

A Gateway to Break Free from the Powerful Practice of Reviews! A story of your experience is what is true for you in the moment, it can be “made to stick” and reveal a unique quality of how you serve. This blog article takes you into the world of reviews, a world that seems to control us and define our experiences. Do you care about the reviews people write about you or your services? Do you write reviews? Here is how we will explore and meet this world of reviews: A review of my recent experience in a restaurant What makes an experience stick? Is what I need also what you need?   A review of my recent experience in a restaurant My experience in Bistro Heritage made me smile. This is my story or if you wish, my review. I enjoyed the food and the wine and yet that is not really what made me experience joy. What made me leave the bistro with a smile on my face was the effect the gracious attitude of the maître had on me. In a short period of time I noticed him spontaneously filleting a sole for one of his young customers. A little while later he passed my table and saw my puzzled look regarding the piece of rib in front of me. He gently proposed to cut it in smaller pieces for me. It was a generous offer, he did not parent me. I felt grateful and cared for. Later in the evening I witnessed how he offered another couple a glas of rosé out of a magnum bottle. He saw their own bottle was empty and their meal not yet finished. This review shares the story of my experience. It is personal, it is unique to who and what I am. It is related to what sticks for me!   What makes an experience stick There is a lot of information available on what sticks and what doesn’t stick. The Heath brothers take you on a special journey in their book “Made to Stick”  They list a series of factors that are important if you want your organisation, product or restaurant to stick: SIMPLE-UNEXPECTED-CONCRETE-CREDIBLE-EMOTIONAL-STORY Lets have look and match these factors with my story above. It is simple, this maître sees an opening and he acts upon it. It is unexpected, he got my attention. It is concrete, I understood and I remembered it afterwards. It is credible. I believe that this way of being is what will create a more beautiful world. It is emotional, because it is about care and love for others. It is a story that can be spread into the world. This is remarkable! What if what makes us smile, sticks with us because it follows all these principles the Heath brothers mention! What is also remarkable that many reviews are limited...
