 Learn how to step inside a picture to resolve old problems.

Green Island off Australia's great barrier reef

My Visual Viewpoint perfect picture for stepping into

As I began writing a few notes to tell you about this photo, I was reminded of a feature on Support4Change called Stepping Into a Picture. This technique uses pictures and paintings to help you see an unresolved issue between you and another person in a different light. Choose a picture, such as this one, and do the following:

Think about a situation you want resolved between you and another person.

Imagine you step into the picture, with or without that person.

What would you say?

What would you do?

Let your mind be open to what might happen.

When you come here during the next several months and see the pictures I’ve chosen to share as I recover from my operation, I hope you will choose to use the stepping-into-a-picture technique to discover a new approach to an old problem.

Now, let me tell you about the photo above.

Along the eastern coast of Australia lies the Great Barrier Reef. To reach the reef and swim with the fish, we first took a boat to Green Island and, after an hour exploring this coral cay, took another boat and headed out to the reef. There we donned wet suits and had a fabulous time snorkeling. I highly recommend doing this at least once in your lifetime!

Situated on Australia’s beautiful Great Barrier Reef just 45 minutes from Cairns, Green Island is one of Australia’s premier environmental heritage sites, acclaimed for its balance between visitors and protection of a unique environment. On our walk around the island we came upon these willow-like trees kissed by the breeze and offering a frame for a look back to the mainland. I hope you agree that it would be a lovely place to try and resolve an old issue. All the gentle breezes and light air offer a different perspective on life than our ordinary every-day perspective.
