B The Change Personal History Pattern Adaptation

The following adaptation of this pattern restates it using the Meta-states model. This was developed by Hall and Bodenhamer.

1. Identify the problem event. This will serve as the primary state. "Think about a time and place in your history that still troubles you." "IIow does it trouble you?" "What problem does it create for you?" "When you step into that memory, what emotion arises? WTiat meanings?" Now step out of that problem state.

2. Take an observer's viewpoint of that experience. This represents a mcta-state about the primary state. Float above your Time-line (dissociate) and go back to the problem event and observe it as a witness to it. From this meta-position, see that younger you going through that event. (If you have difficulty staving dissociated, put your representations up on an imaginary screen.)

3. Gather learnings about the event from the observer position. This allows you to move into another meta-state about the primary-learning about the event. "What resources did that younger you need?" "What resources did the others in the situation need?" Identify the resources needed that would have changed it.

4. Return to the present and fully access the resources. From the position of the here-and-now, access and anchor each and every resource needed. Amplify these and then test your anchors for the resources.

5. From the observer meta-position, transfer the resources. When you have returned to the past event, give that younger you each resource as a gift from your present self. Then let the event play out with the resources, and imagine the younger you now acting, thinking, feeling, etc., in a transformed way. From this position, you can also give the others in the movie the resources that they needed.

6. Come forward through your history with the added resources. Step into the movie and become that younger you for the moment, and then imagine yourself moving up through your lime-line experiencing the resources so that, as you move through each subsequent year of life, the resources transform your history and enrich vour life. Let the resources transform yourself and

the others.

7. Return to the present and run an ecology check. Does this new edition of your memory provide you with a sense of closure? Does it encode better learnings and responses? Does it enhance your life? Would you like to live with this new edition? Does it provide you a more useable map for navigating life?

8. Future pace. Look out into your future from the perspective of having made these changes in your sense of your personal history, and imagine them continuing into your future...
