WHAT IS THE ESSENTIAL TOOL?
I am often asked what it is I do. As with any work it has levels of complexity, but I will try to explain it in simple terms.I capture a cameo of a person in a given moment and I assess their current state which would include the following:
- Physical – sight, hearing, movement
- Emotional – stress levels, contentment, pressure
- Mental – analytical/creative, numbers/pictures, detail/big picture
- Spiritual – belief systems (self, others, worldly)
- Intellectual – application of knowledge
From this I can show the person their current state, highlighting areas of strength, which could be developed further and areas of weakness which could be addressed. How do I do this? There are four aspects of my work: the tool, the interpretation, the feedback and the recommendations.
THE TOOL – THE LAZY8
The infinity sign (Lazy8) is a symbol of continuity. It is dynamic with the perpetual flow of energy and movement.
It is well known that drawing encompasses a person’s state at the time of drawing. In drawing the lazy8 nine continual times, there is a flow of energy both conscious and unconscious. It can be likened to taking a photo, not with a camera, when that instant in time is captured. The Lazy8 will change each time it is done which enables me to monitor progress.
I am not a hand writing analyst but interpreting the lazy8 is similar to that. I look at things like:
- Continuity – energy flow; continual. Free and easy or hesitant
- Size – large or small
- Shape – rounded or elongated
- Placement – high, low, straight, at an angle
- Pressure – light or hard
- Uniformity – precise or haphazard
From this I can pick up:
- Gait – how does the person walk?
- Do both eyes track normally?
- Is their hearing good?
- Is the person relaxed or under pressure?
- Is the person self-confident with a good self-image or fearful?
- Is the person emotionally mature?
- Is the person left or right brain dominant, analytical or creative or both?
- What is their learning style – how they anchor knowledge? Do they need to see or hear things? Do they need to move?
- Does the person have strong belief systems – in self, others and the world?
- Does the person have a good understanding and use of language?
- Is the person able to apply knowledge?
- Is the person self-aware?
Once the assessment is completed, it is discussed with the person highlighting strengths and areas that need to be addressed. Because the Lazy8 captures both conscious and unconscious energy, the person might not be aware of some aspects; but, when raised they recognize them. The strengths could be developed further (some people lack self-confidence and are unaware of their strengths which can be developed further boosting their self-confidence).
There are many ways to attend to the areas that need to be addressed:
- Kinesiology – Brain Gym exercises designed to trigger switches in the brain
- Specialists – optometrists, dentists, doctors, physiotherapists, ear, nose and throat specialists.
Drawing the Lazy8 takes less than five minutes of a person’s time. The assessment takes longer. It can be done individually or in groups (classrooms or businesses). It enables the person to maximise their potential to be the best that they can be.
It was designed for schools, home schooling, education in general but it can also be used in business, sports and therapy.
