    Start The Road Interview "copy between the tags" //

    This is an imaginery journey down a road. Take in the sights, sounds and colours, just like a video camera recording all that lies surrounding you. Survey the scene, noticing whatis far off in the distance, the background surrounds, the weather, the season and a total image of what you view. Feel the ground beneath your feet. Try to visualize it as a picture on a canvas, but with movement, sound, colour and emotion. You are the surveyor on this journey. Draw your journey on paper if you desire, as it often shows clearer results, then attach your drawing via snapshot or scan to your post.

    Q1. What colour is the road? black
    Q2. What texture is the road? rough
    Q3. How solid is the road? its solid

    You continue walking and come to a river that must be crossed. There before you is the river; the size and depth are up to you. You cannot go around it but must imagine a way to cross it. Whatever you need to cross the river is already within your mind, just imagine seeing yourself do it.

    Q4. How do you cross the river? rope bridge
    Q5. What does the water look like? misty
    Q6. How fast is the water current?rapid
    Q7. Is there anything in the water? yes If so, what? big rocks

    You have crossed the river and continue walking. You come to a house. Take a good look at the house. Notice the impression it makes on you.

    Q8. What colour is the house? white
    Q9. What condition is the house in? neat
    Q10. Does anyone live in the house? no sign If so, who?

    We continue forward in our minds journey and come to an open field. A cup is on the ground, and we stop to examine it. The cup can be of any size, shape, colour and description. Focus on it's look, condition and contents.

    Q11. What colour is the cup? black
    Q12. What condition is the cup in? old dinted
    Q13. Is there anything in the cup? no If so, what?

    You continue walking down the road and come to something blocking your path. It stops you in your tracks and prevents you from going forward. This is an obstacle.

    Q14. What is the obstacle, and please describe it in detail? a hugh big boulder rock that is bigger than me...its grey and not a specific shape rounded but not
    Q15. What do you see beyond the obstacle? i can't see beyond it.

    Now you have had a break, go back to every question and look at your response. Try and find what you feel that your mind presented the image it did. Explain colours you chose, textures, water, cup, solids, liquids, space, objects, people, anything and everything that you wrote from your projected image, try and find what you feel to why you have that image. Don't look hard at things, instead try and look for the easy answers, as they are often the correct one's. Don't attempt to find something that isn't present, just look at each aspect for its absolute simplicity.

    This is not an absolute, but something you must do in order to try and self analyse yourself. This is important. Please answer what you can, and simply define if you cannot find an emotion to a response you gave.

    i think the road is black yet not smooth yet solid cause i am unsure about what lies ahead or where it leads...black is mourning

    the river i think that the rope bridge is an indicator of my insecurity or maybe its a tust thing.. the water is my emotional state the is flowing but not clear with big rocks that the water is flowing around or against...so its powerful emotions

    my house is white but old with black window frames, cottage style and seems abandoned..but not neglected...maybe its cause i find or have not grown or found security in family or home

    my cup is black and dinted maybe cause its been beaten i look inside and its empty..maybe its cause i feel empty and battered..

    the hugh boulder that i cant see around or over is something bigger than me that stops me seeing a future or what lies ahead its blocking me from moving forward

    You feel great sadness in life and commitment. You feel as though you are progressing well in life, though life is certainly difficult for you now. You are not trusting of relationships, likely because of deception, which you are aware. You approach relationships with excitement and impulsiveness. You have an innocent idealism that your support systems have been good, naïve even, though you feel they are good enough to survive in life, you demonstrate a poor self esteem. You feel victimized from commitment which is helping cause your predominate sadness. You have no commitment towards anyone or anything else (if spouse: commitment towards them only, or work only). You most significant issue is off recent origin, though it causes you confusion, you are aware of it. You see no hope or future for yourself at this time, possibly even feel as though you have given up on life itself.

    So Doobie... what can you tell me about your current subconscious emotional self?
