Once you have chosen, imagine yourself in a room in a childhood home. See the furniture, the colors of the room. Can you smell anything, any aromas of food cooking or other odors? Can you hear any noises or people talking? Is there a television on? What show might be on? Can you look out the window from where you’re sitting? What do you see?

Take a couple of minutes to re-experience this childhood scene.

On a piece of paper, jot down all the positive thoughts and feelings you associate with this reflection. Then make a list of all the talents and positive capacities you had as a child at that age, whether they were recognized by anyone else in the world or just secretly and intuitively recognized by you.
