My Identities & Values — A Contemplation Exercise

A Contemplation Exercise for you from Nadia Payan

5
We all hold different identities and values in our lives. This worksheet was created for you to contemplate the ones you carry close.
Invite yourself to write up the identities you're familiar with and new ones, ones that you refused to acknowledge but know they're there, and more. Fill it all out at once or go a little at a time, just be kind to yourself and go at your pace. You can explore each indentity and value you write directly in this sheet or as a journaling prompt. Be honest with yourself and invite yourself to really do you.

To use it, just go to File > Make A Copy and save it in your Google Drive. You can change the format and colors to suit your creative self.

A Process for Integration:
1. Contemplate: I think deeply about all the the identities and values I carry and write them out to see them all come together. (Use this document to help you)

2. Reflect: How have they influenced my own inner landspace and worldview, and how they interact with the external (do they hold privilege? do they not?)

3. Integrate: Take time to let these ideas simmer. We’re often so rushed to know exactly what to do with all the intuitive and factual information that is bubbling up. Make space to research, journal, art, meditate, divine, pull cards, listen… whatever methods are calling to you. Use them. Sit with them. Document them the best way you know how.

4. Create: This may be the the part of the process that arguably takes the most resilience. Although, every part has its challenges. The creative process is usually not so straightforward and takes a lot of trust. It’s tough to say when this will happen, exactly. Just know that it inevitably does happen. Ideas on how your closest known identities and values can show up in your life and business begin to form and seek your attention out. You suddenly feel pulled to focus in on certain topics. Make shifts in your marketing, pricing, how you present your work to others. This is creating from a place of integrated and inspired action.
