Do the Opposite

By making a new choice in the opposite direction we expand creative flow. You might choose this move when you feel stuck.

How to do it

  1. Notice an element of your posture.
  2. Let yourself do the opposite of what you are doing. (e.g., if you are standing, sit, or if your head is upright, tilt it to one side.)
  3. Notice what happens to your mood, thoughts and choices.
  4. Notice your pace, and do the opposite of. (i.e., if you are moving fast, try moving slow, if you are breathing fast, slow your breathing.)


  • Increases flow and aliveness
  • Supports shifting stuckness
  • Creates connection with the unconscious
