Discover your Unique Advantage.
Thank you for purchasing the Unique Advantage coaching experience - which includes:
- Access to the Animal Totem Visualisation
- Access to the accompanying questionnaire
- 90 minute one-on-one coaching session
Animal totems are powerful metaphors to remind us who we really are, and how our natural strengths help to support us in our work. They give us insights into our innate personality, strengths, abilities and style of working - and how they influence and support who we are, and how we best work.
Pick a time and day when you are likely to be the most relaxed and unlikely to be disturbed. Typically this is either first thing in the morning when you first wake up, or an hour before you go to bed, but that's entirely up to you. Avoid consuming coffee, alcohol or other stimulants for several hours prior to doing this exercise - as they may inhibit your ability to relax.
1. Open this webpage on your smart phone and click on this audio link, so the audio is ready play.
2. Download this questionnaire and either print it out or have it open on a device. But please DO NOT READ THE QUESTIONS YET. If you do, your rational/conscious mind may try to influence the 'natural' answers that will come from your subconscious as a result of doing this Visualisation.
3. Find a quiet place when you can sit on a comfortable chair, a bed, or on a cushion on the floor. Please don't sit at your work desk - as this will put you in a rational frame of mind. You want to be as comfortable and relaxed as possible.
4. Have a pen and either your printed questionnaire (turned over so you can't read it) or some paper to write on by your side
5. Before you start, repeat this mantra in your head three times - this is an NLP technique designed to open your mind up to creativity:
- I will open up to a world of possibilities
- I will allow new ideas to come through
- Anything is possible
6. Press 'Play' on your device, close your eyes, and listen to the Visualisation
7. Write down the first ideas / words that come on a separate piece of paper, then start completing the questionnaire - answering from your heart, not your head - using your intuition. Note down everything that comes to you - however unusual, and in as much detail as possible. While some of it may not make sense now, all the information you receive is very useful, so please include everything!
8. If your handwriting is neat and legible, just scan and email your answers to me. If it isn't (or you are a doctor) then please download the PDF again and copy your answers in clear and/or block capitals - then scan and email to me. Please don't be tempted to amend any answers because they sound 'unusual' - we want to capture the intuitive and emotional information in its raw form. We can then make rational sense of it later.
As soon as you have completed the exercise and sent me your answers I will contact you to make a time for our one hour Skype or telephone coaching session - start times available Monday-Thursday 9.30am to 7.30pm Australian Standard Time. I will also send you a fact sheet on your Animal Totem prior to our session, so you can read up on what this totem means to you.
Good luck - relax and enjoy the process! If you have any questions please call Justin on 0423 988 418.
