THE POWER AS KNOWING PARTICIPATION IN CHANGE TOOL (PKPCT) ©
The Power Tool (PKPCT), otherwise known as the POWER METER, measures power. There are 52 items in a paper and pencil format that assess the four dimensions of power (awareness, choices, freedom to act intentionally, and involvement in creating change). The findings, known as the Power Profile, define areas of greater power and lesser power. This next step is to create an individualized Power Prescription that provides a plan to strengthen one’s power through using various Health Patterning modalities.
The Power Profile describes:
- the nature of the awareness of experiences;
- the type of choices one makes;
- the degree to which one uses the freedom to act intentionally;
- and the manner of involvement in creating specific changes in one’s life.
Here is an example of a Power Profile and Power Prescription of someone who came to me for Health Patterning and was having difficulty finding employment:
Joan’s Power Profile revealed that while highly aware, her choices and freedom to act intentionally were less powerful, and her scores on involvement in creating change were considerably lower than the other three dimensions. I suggested using guided imagery as a Health Patterning modality to help her find a suitable job, which she accomplished within a month. Then the focus for Joan shifted to becoming involved in creating the changes within herself and at work that helped her thrive in her new position, since that was the area of her Power Profile that needed a boost. This is the Power Prescription she used to find employment. This exercise can also be used to help self-employed people create additional business.
Exercise for Finding Work
Breathe out with a long out-breath through your mouth followed with a briefer in-breath through your nose. Repeat this two more times, and then breathe any way you like. See yourself floating in a hot air balloon above the town and community where you live. You are distributing your resume. See many copies floating down and landing on the ground all over the place. Return to the ground, go home, open your appointment book, have your pen in your hand, and sit by the phone. The phone rings. You make an appointment for a job interview. The phone rings again, you make another appointment for another job interview. This continues until your appointment book is filled. Now see yourself interviewing and being offered several job positions. See what happens. Sense, and know how you feel. Breathe out and open your eyes.
