Welcome to the World of Mind Mapping!

Mind Mapping has been around for many years. It is a graphically designed art technique that puts what you are observing on paper, along with a path forward. I have been using Mind Maps for years in counseling.

For example, in the Mind Map, Small God Complex, I was listening to a husband and wife talk about all the elements of what was wrong with the wife. As they talked, several things began accumulating in my mind to where I could not keep up with the conversation.

I began to write down all they were saying in what became this “Small God Mind Map,” asking them—all along the way—if I was hearing them correctly. They affirmed each aspect of the map, giving them a picture of their marriage and a pathway forward.

Several months later I wrote an article to accompany the Mind Map (see Mind Mapping a Lady With a Small God), while changing the details of the article so it would not reflect that couple, though the Mind Map is a close representation to what we discussed during the counseling.

I have found Mind Mapping to be an excellent resource when working with people through problems. I use MindNode, which works well with my Mac. There are scores of Mind Mapping software on the market today. Perhaps you will find a better one that suits you.

The table below has several Mind Maps for your use. Many of them have accompanying articles to explain the Maps, which are in PDF and JPG formats for you. I hope these Maps prove to be a blessing to you and those you serve.
