ADAPTIVE & DIRECTIVE

The next thing you should know about your experiences is whether they are adaptive or directive. When information is adaptive, it is information that:

  • Helps you in understanding and/or adapting to a person, object, or event that is emotionally important to you in some way.
  • Helps another person in understanding and/or adapting. For example, a living relative needing to know something about a deceased loved one, or a deceased person needing to know something about their own passing.

Adaptive experiences can take many forms like providing emotional comfort or physical safety and security. In any case, you are requesting information because you have an emotional tie to a person, object, or event. This means in order to receive information, the person, object, or event has to “mean” something to you emotionally; where not meeting your needs will have a negative effect on you that will result in some sort of distress. Adaptive experiences mainly help you and others when things change and you or they are not completely prepared to deal with those changes.

However, when information is directive, it is information that:

  • Helps you in coming to a decision involving a person, object, or event that is emotionally important to you in some way.
  • Helps you or another person in coming to a decision.

Directive experiences are experiences where the universe and you are trying to accomplish a goal with each other. The universe, or entities, provide you with information and you do your part to understand what that information means and to put that information to good use.
