Interpreting Your SoulCollage® Cards

Doing the I Am The One Who… Exercise Alone:

  • You will need some paper and a pen or pencil for this part of the process. OR you will need an audio recorder of some kind to speak into. Gather these first.
  • Light a small candle if you like. This will help to create sacred space for your inner work.
  • Turn on some soft music if you find it relaxing. Or you might enjoy doing this in complete silence. What matters is that you decide.
  • Begin by taking a few deep breaths.
  • Stretch and move for a few minutes. It’s time to get out of your head and into your body.
  • Open your eyes and look at your SoulCollage® card for a moment. Really, really look at it. Admire it. Hold it to your heart and bless it if you like. It is a beautiful expression of some part of your self. Honor it. Respect it.
  • You’re going to use your imagination for this next part. Pretend that you are actually entering the image. Become the main figure in the image. Even if it’s a flower, or a tree, or a big yellow box. You are going to speak as if you are the image.
  • If you are doing this exercise in writing, write the words I Am the One Who… on your paper and then finish the sentence as if you are the image, reporting back to you. Continue this process until you feel as if you have run out of things to say.
  • If you are doing this exercise using a tape recorder, speak the I Am the One Who… statements into the microphone, continuing as many times as needed until you feel that there is nothing left to say.
  • Continue this exercise, either in writing or using the recorder, with the following questions:

1. What do you have to give me?
2. What do you want from me or what do you need from me?
3. Is there anything else you want to tell me today?

  • Take a few more deep breaths and do some movement if you need to get back out of your head and into your body.
  • By now you might have a better idea of what this SoulCollage® card is all about.  Or you might not.  Keep your writing in a safe place. If you are using a recorder, you might want to play it back and transcribe your words into your journal or a special notebook for your card interpretations.
  • You can choose to do this exercise with another card (if you’ve made more than one) or you might decide you’ve had enough for today. Either way, make it your choice.
Doing the I Am The One Who… Exercise with a Partner
  • You will need some paper and a pen or pencil for this part of the process. Gather these before you begin.
  • Light a small candle to create sacred space.
  • Turn on some relaxing music if you want to. Or you might want to simply relax into the silence space you have created.
  • Begin by taking a few deep breaths.
  • Stretch and move for a few minutes if you like. It’s time to get out of your head and into your body.
  • Open your eyes and look at your SoulCollage® card for a moment. Really, really look at it. Admire it. Hold it to your heart and bless it if you like. It is a beautiful expression of some part of your self. Honor it. Respect it.
  • You’re going to use your imagination for this next part. Pretend that you are actually entering the image. Become the main figure in the image. Even if it’s a flower, or a tree, or a big yellow box.  You are going to speak as if you are the image.
  • Say out loud I Am the One Who… and finish this sentence as if you were the central image in your card. Say it as many times as you like (each time with a different ending), until you feel that you have no more to say. Your partner writes down everything you say so that you will have a record of it afterwards.
  • Continue this exercise with the following questions:
    1. Who are you?
    2. What do you have to give me?
    3. What do you want/need from me?
    4. Is there anything else you have to say to me today?
  • Ask your partner to read your words back to you. Sometimes new insight is gained as you hear your statements in someone else’s voice.
  • Take a few more deep breaths and do some movement if you need to get back out of your head and into your body.
  • By now you might have a better idea of what this SoulCollage® card is all about (or not). Keep your writing in a safe place.
  • Exchange roles with your partner and write down her I Am the One Who… statements about her SoulCollage® card, as well as her answers to the other questions. Read them back to her when she is finished.
