WARNING: If you plan on submitting your own mental imagery interview for assessment, DO NOT read the proceeding first, instead fill out your own interview first, then read these, so your current mental image is not skewed, resulting in a possible inaccurate emotional state being returned to you. 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 what is 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 color is the road? I left the grey road and began my walk upon the sandy brown in color road. Q2. What texture is the road? I walked from the badly damaged, along the edges, grey, cement road to a dirt road in which I trudge along as it is often quite difficult to walk; The rocks and ledge are partially buried within and protruding causing me to often trip and stumble. Q3. How solid is the road? The road I’m now walking is solid as a rock, but again rocks of different sizes generously scattered about and most deeply embedded in the ground. 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? Gently dive beneath water, come up for air quickly and than swim across. This is where and when I feel alive and can hear the long familiar sounds of wildlife. Can spot a star or two in the sky and feel the cool refreshing water, especially enjoyed upon my face and hair. I feel exhilarated, yet somewhat anxious from the anticipation of my exhaustion right ahead of me. Q5. What does the water look like? Midnight blue in some areas from the reflection of the moon and rather dark almost black in other areas of the clean and very refreshing water; It’s harmless and warm, but unless I'm immersed in the moment I feel most frightened, even terrorfied, at times. Q6. How fast is the water current? Not to fast, not to slow, just right and steady. Q7. Is there anything in the water? If so, what? No! With the exception of schools of little fishy’s deep down below swimming about. Well yes, perhaps there are other water dwellers, but I don’t know what they are, or where they are, or what they might be doing, as their not anywhere’s near me to the best of my knowledge. 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? Red brick with black iron railing fencing surrounding the entire property and two gates, one for the entrance to the front yard and one exiting the large back yard. The landscape is dressed up and designed very carefully and well done with attractive bushes, plants and a tree or two in the yard and tall, fun evergreens bordering the fronts foundation and separating the front yard, from the sides and the back yard. Q9. What condition is the house in? Outside: attractive and immaculate & inside: homey, antiquely artistic, cozy & comfortable, welcoming, well maintained and impressive. Q10. Does anyone live in the house? If so, who? Yes, but who I don’t know as the house is for the time being empty and I imagine perhaps an older woman, her husband and their child live in it, but are away on vacation. Or perhaps, something bad has happened to them. 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? Copper, a chalice Q12. What condition is the cup in? Good, but weathered (tarnished) Q13. Is there anything in the cup? If so, what? A single, large drop of red wine 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? If I must come to an obstacle, then it’s certain to be the enormous, tall, smooth, round boulder blocking the entire dirt road; A daunting obstruction. Thought the boulder itself is clean, everything surrounding it is dank in appearance and sensation. I'm chilly and the obstacle size most shocking. There is no place whatsoever to grab hold of or place my foot upon to climb over. Alone I cannot pass, unless I enter into the edge of the dark woods or threatening marsh on my left and right and then search diligently for the way around. Q15. What do you see beyond the obstacle? I see nothing beyond the obstacle as I cannot see up and above. I do however imagine that there is miles more of continuing dark road to travel alone, before I can even hope to consider the possibility of the road ever ending and arriving anywhere.
