We all need strokes. Strokes help us to gain self- acknowledgement, self- confidence and self esteem.
A stroke is a unit of recognition, can be a smile, a gift, a touch, or a compliment.
The more strokes you give, the more you will get.
How do you feel if someone says to you: ’You are so beautiful!’, or: ‘You are the best!’, or ‘I hear you, I can feel with you’ or: ‘You are very special, I am grateful that you are in my life’?
Do you get enough warm strokes that feel good? Who gives you strokes? Do you give strokes?
A stroke can also be negative. It hurts.
Do you know situations in which someone just says that you are terrible or that you look awful? How does it feel, how do you react, do you take it very personally?
Do you let others know their behaviour is ridiculous or disgusting? Do you give your partner or your children negatives strokes?
Who gives you negative strokes?
What do you need to end up the spiral of negative strokes?
Having drawn this card it is maybe time to give someone warm strokes?
Maybe it is time to tell your partner that you need to get strokes?
Maybe it is time to stop beleiving, that you get weak or less beautiful if you give strokes?
Maybe it is time to tell someone who gives you negative strokes how you feel about it?
Maybe it is time to think about your stroke economy in general: do you give and get enough strokes, do you, or does someone close to you live in a stroke deprived environment?
Maybe it is time to be grateful that you are nourished by enough wonderful strokes and that you don’t hesitate to give them?
