Each week has a different constellation from an ancestor born in a different century and decade and it can be translated into an Ancestral Asex King Heroscope Psychometry - with Biblical melodies Contained in 4 Pop songs changing 48 time a day (each half hour)
Freud's friend, Karl Mannheim (my Uncle, who was among the founders of UNESCO) wrote books (see: Wikipedia) in which he claims that in each Century we have 4 Generations with different Attitudes. (The Strauss-Howe Theory of Generations develops his idea today. Like their Reactive - oroginally Fathering - (in the 1800s) and Brothering - Innovation -in the 1700s) and Nurturing - Mothering - in the 1600s and adaptive-demanding - Sister- in the 1500s. They may be coded with simple Cards colours. ) In each Century we have only 4 Family members - but only One is enough in each to represent the recovery process.
So while you meditate and you are listening inside your body - and then we are in the ancient Hindu and Buddhist and Zen guru-yoga and guru-mantra tradition. (In Europe we see our King ancestors together with their contemporary Meshiah appearing in that Era - listen to the very disturbed schizoid 1500s King Carlos V of Spain and his sons' relative and enemy, Elisabeth I and James I of England). We may try to start his dialogue with a descendant relative - who is less disturbed, more Adult due to the Empathy Evolution: the Prussian King Frederic II the Great in the borderline Narcissistic 1700s. So they - the wounded Self 1500s and the mirroring Rigid Parent of the 1700s are both assisted by the Good-Enough Mothering Generation (depressive stance in the 1600s: Queen Christina of Sweden a relative of Frederic) and as a result of this meditative process the Brother (or Recovery) Generation appears as in the Enlightened 1800s (representant: Empress Sisi, of Austria).
Mannheim (and his friends, my ancestors) used simple Card Games like a patience card game to meditate following the hints of the Inner Family Cards (each number encoding a decade and each card color encoding one of the 4 Centuries). We do not have to know all the data about these Kings as they represent the different psychotic level (expressed by heir horoscope) of the Self States only . They are each of them meeting a Guru - a Messianic Ideal (a Miracle Rabbi or a Saint or and avatar of the Eternal Saviour, - "Jesus" for Christianity-followers and the Emperor of Japan or China or Turkey - himself.)
So this was an inner Healing process made playful with the Memory Card Game.
Card Game’s Name: ANCESTRAL DREAM WAR GAME (Hommage a Mannheim)
SMALL CARD DECK.
PLAYER1 and 2 EACH PULLS A CARD(It can be any Year from 1870-to 1970)

Each meaningful CARD PULLED (if the two NAME has a known friendship or JUST ONE YER difference or they are many generations away but we know thy are IDOL RELATIONS – it means 10 POINTS if it isthe SAME GENERATION AS the PLAYER ithas a valueof 30 POINTS.
We only pull until we have ONE FOR US and the Opposite PLAYER (PLAYER 2) has an Enemy (distanced) CARD – from either Generation- it can be Father, Son or Great-Grandfather (like 1870- 1930) or even a greater difference may be pulled but we do need 2 Groups (minimally). ENEMY and FRIEND (RED and BLUE). Of course the 2 Groups maybe played by a solitary player too.
We also must chose the CONFLICT SITE – each Century we have Two Conflict Sites. These are FAmous Assassinations or Suicides. (Difference: 44/45 years)
The LIST of the CONFLICT SITES is: 1889- CROWN PRINCE RUDOLF kills MaryVetsera
1934: Hitler pays terrorists (With the intermediary of Horthy the Hungarian Governor) to kill the Serb King (Alex II) and French Foreign Minister BArthou
1979: Lord Mountbatten (Uncle of Queen Elisabeth II)the Ex-Vice-Roy of India was murdered by IRA through Lybia.
BIG DECK OF CARDS: We are using as our „Armed Forces” the 4 different Century with our Ancestors Names (and their Messianic Rabbi friends who are learning the Bible and inspiring each a Decade Innovation)
We do use first the very same Decade (from each Century/Colour) – 1500s Clubs, 1600s BAtons, 1700s Diamonds 1800s Cups as we have pulled for the Main Hero who is now looking for advice in his dreams (dreamed by his ancestors – focusing onthe Drawings Depicting the Decade Invention.)
