In the Body Life Skills program we use the word ‘picture’ to describe the images we conjure as to how we anticipate life is going to be.


In the Body Life Skills program we use the word ‘picture’ to describe the images we conjure as to how we anticipate life is going to be. We are all every single day creating images of the way we think life should be. Our pictures are often what at Fabic we refer to as our: 

  1. Shoulds 
  2. Wants 
  3. Needs 
  4. Expectations 
  5. Attachments 

We create pictures about: 

  • How we need a setting to be 
  • How we expect an interaction between us and other people will play out 
  • How we think a task should be completed or whether we should or should not be exposed to that task in the first place 
  • How we want or expect our automatic or internal response to be in certain aspects of life 

The list of examples of pictures is endless but nonetheless, we are all creating pictures of how we expect life will or should be. 

Smashed pictures initially can be a trigger to the body going higher than code blue. A smashed picture is a life lesson that has been and will be presented again and again until the person is ready to see and learn from the lesson they are reacting to by going higher than code blue. 

The process of using this chart is to: 

  1. Identify as soon as the body goes higher than code blue 
  2. Ask: I wonder what my smashed picture is? 
  3. Ask: I wonder what my picture is? 
  4. Ask: I wonder why I even have this picture? … ahhh … 
  5. Ask: What rule have I subscribed to that feeds this picture? 

Rules are our subscriptions and more often than not ones we don’t even know we have subscribed to. Rules come about from our ideals, beliefs, culture, society, religion and so much more. The key is: the rules are what we have subscribed to – rules feed our pictures. 

Most, if not all of us react to our smashed pictures; however, rather than trying to control and make our pictures happen, we can explore our own pictures and ask whether this subscription is supporting or hindering our way forward.
