When questioning someone to determine whether they are In
Time or Through Time, you can ask several different questions.
If you want to do it quickly, just say, “Where’s the past and
where’s the future for you?” Or, “In what direction is your past,
and in what direction is your future?” Roughly half the people
you question will answer easily. Most people will have no
problem discovering how they represent time, and will tell you,
“My future is in front and the past is behind.” Or they’ll say that
the future is left and the past is right, or they’ll give you some
other direction.
You may run across people who will give you a geographic
location, saying, “San Bernadino.” Don’t laugh! It’s true.
“Where’s your future?” “San Bernadino.” OK! (I’ll tell you that
San Bernadino is a better place to be from than to be going to!
Just kidding.) If that happens, work with them until they are able
to formulate a linear pattern for their memories.
If they are unable to give you a direction when you say,
“Where’s the past and where’s the future for you?” then say, “I’d
like you to stop and recall a memory from when you were age…”
and then pick an age. My favorite ages are somewhere around
age 5 to 7,10 to 13, and 16 to 18, and last week, depending on how
old the person is. So you say, “What I’d like you to do is stop and
recall a memory from the past.” And then you say, “Now, what
direction did that memory come to you from?” Then say, “Now,
I’d like you to think of something that’s going to happen in the
future, say six months or a year from now… Now, from what
direction did that memory come to you?” Notice in both cases I
used the word “now.” That keeps them oriented to the present.
The word “now” is important there. It keeps them in the present,
noticing the orientation of from where the memory came to
them. Frequently you will have one of two possible responses.
