Do you remember the Where’s Waldo books? If you do, do you remember you or your children avidly scanning the pages looking for Waldo? I can remember spending many an hour with my children as we scanned each page in search of Waldo. There was always great excitement when they found him. I enjoyed those books because they created an opportunity for wonderful interaction and served as a great bonding tool. This is because the conscious mind is activated and developed through awe, wonder, and discovery.
The ICWIB! Activity Eight—What Do You See? creates the same opportunity. Similar to the Where’s Waldo books, it invites creative interaction, strengthens observational skills, and can be used as a bonding tool. Since the activity activates the conscious mind, it also suspends the subconscious mind and its tapes. That means you are able to create a new response and connect in a deeper and more meaningful manner.
Many parents have reported using this activity in restaurants, doctor offices, and during times of upheaval. It can be a good tool to use with both young and older children. Remember, 93% of communication is non-verbal, so spending time doing this activity together can break down walls and open up communication.
The I Create What I Believe! (ICWIB!) Program, which is endorsed by Dr. Bruce Lipton and based on his research, has many different activities to help both children and adults learn to activate their conscious minds, and in the process suspend tapes that are hindering their ability to thrive.
