Reflections on the Blueprint

By | Published:

We get a lot of questions about the nature of the blueprint, whether it is fixed or not. Here’s what Bob has to say on this topic:

To only talk about the activity or process of the blueprint, or to describe it as formative activity or forces is to miss that aspect of it that is fixed and constant. The information for “kidney,” “brain,” or “tibia,” is relatively “fixed” or consistent, stable, and enduring. The information for protein formation is very specific and stable.
If it is not assembled correctly, guardian proteins recognize that it has been assembled incorrectly and take it apart: “Did not follow blueprint – dismantle as quickly as possible! Danger!”

This is the basis of Radionics : that each organ and system of the body has a very specific, i.e. fixed, frequency or vibration. (http://www.radionic.co.uk/What_is_radionics.htm).Ill health results when that fixed activity of that system or organ or joint becomes unfixed and wanders to a different vibratory pattern. Different modalities of healing help the system to return to its relatively fixed state that is necessary for health to emerge. As Georges Lakhovsky, a Russian scientist who worked with Nikola Tesla, pointed out, cells have a specific frequency rate when they are healthy, and ill health is the result of that frequency wandering, dropping to a lower level of vibration. Too much oscillator slop: retune as quickly as possible, or we can’t play that song anymore! From that perspective, a certain degree of fixedness is absolutely necessary for health to emerge and be maintained.

We are back to the analogy of the wave and the information embedded in the wave. You could say that the wave is the activity of the blueprint and that the information embedded in the wave is the information of the blueprint. I think this is what the biodynamic phrase “the blueprint carried by the breath of life” is trying to convey. There is relatively fixed information that the breath of life carries over and over and over to each individual. A certain degree of “fixedness” is necessary for life to emerge. Too little and we have ill health, too much and we have ill health. Personally I think that a great deal of ill health is more a result of the loss of the “fixed” information of the blueprint than a loss of activity. Sometimes both are lost, for example, a joint fixation is a loss of both necessary information and activity.

Think about why most people come to see us. They have a “problem.” Usually the fixed form of the human being that they recognize as “healthy” has either become over “fixed” or the vibratory pattern has wandered so far from the fixed template for the proper functioning that it no longer has the information that is needed. The system needs re-booting with the information contained on the original disk of the operating system. Or the information has become corrupted. In that case it’s not a hardware problem, it’s a software problem. Defragment disk and re-install the blueprint information.

More on Getting Out of the Way

Another useful practice is, when holding the points, pay attention to what you are feeling in your own body rather than focusing on the client. This helps you to just let the blueprint do its work.

Sometimes, of course, images or insights about the client will come to you. Watch out for the phrase, “This is what I see in your energy.” What you say to them becomes a reality for them. Begin by asking them what they are experiencing. File away what you have seen as something that may or may not be relevant as the session unfolds. If you share what you have seen, offer it as a question to see if it resonates.

You can consciously withdraw projections at the end of a session. Bob does this regularly and feels it helps keep things clear between him and his clients. Simply say to yourself something like, “If there is anything I have projected on to this person, may that be released now into the light, and may the work done today be for his/her greatest good.”

Understand it’s impossible to get out of the way one hundred percent. There’s no such thing as total neutrality. At every moment you are bringing your own vocabulary, knowledge and experience to every situation. That’s why ongoing self-inquiry and awareness is an important aspect of doing energy work.

This subject is covered thoroughly in Module 3.

Getting Out of the Way & The Golden Triangle

By | Published:

As an energy work practitioner one of the most important skills to learn is that of getting out of the way. Getting out of the way means you don’t impose your own views or ideas. Rather, you respond to the unique being of each individual client.

People have their own modalities; often they have spent years acquiring and refining their skills, and this is good. The problem comes when people become attached to their information, their perspective, and end up seeing everything through that lens. Working from a SourcePoint perspective involves, in any situation, bringing to bear all the training and information one has, and then be willing to let go and be guided by the blueprint.

Here is a simple exercise that can help you get out of the way when working with a client. Imagine a light in the heart chakra of the client, and in your own heart chakra. Each of those lights is connected to a third light above you by a golden line. So the ray of golden light goes from your heart to the light above, and from the client to the light above, forming a triangle. This is an energetic pattern that symbolizes the connection of the client to that greater light, energy and healing information. It reminds you that your connection to the client is heart-based, but it is not your personal energy that is going to the client. You are connecting through the blueprint. You meet your client through that greater field of light, energy and healing information.

There are a number of specific ways of getting out of the way we’ll be covering.

The Crescent Moon and the Mother

The Crescent Moon is a wonderful and simple meditative practice that radiates support and grounds the energy of an individual in the earth plane.

The Crescent Moon may be helpful as an energetic support for an expectant mother as it brings a strong connection to the archetype or blueprint of the Mother. The Great Mother in many traditions is often shown with the crescent moon under her feet, or on her head. The waxing crescent moon is considered the symbol of the transition from Maiden to Mother. The crescent moon strengthens and supports the power of the Mother, in the universal sense and in the individual. When it is held beneath the feet, it represents the connection of heaven and earth, the bringing together the dimensions of subtle form where we find the blueprint, and the material dimension.

An expectant mother may find this a pleasant and nourishing meditation. Just lie or sit quietly and be aware of the rhythm of your breath. Cup your hands gently around your womb, in the pelvic area. This in essence forms the configuration of the crescent moon. Feel your hands on your womb, cradling the baby within you, nurturing yourself, and know that as you hold yourself and the child this way, you are connecting with the nourishing light, energy and information of the crescent moon, the archetype (blueprint, mandala) of the Mother. You are one with the Great Mother, that power of the feminine that gives birth to and nurtures life.

Intention and the Diamond Points

By | Published:

The four Diamond Points that are the foundation of SourcePoint practice clearly express the intention of our energy work. These four points are the Source, Grounding, Activation, and Transformation Points. In SourcePoint Therapy our intention is simply to connect to Source and its information of order, balance, harmony and flow; ground and awaken that information on this plane of existence, particularly in individual human beings; and activate this information in the human body to bring transformation and balance.

Intention and activation are closely related. Attention is the essence of intention. When you focus on something, you activate it. (As a metaphor, think quantum physics here: a particle comes into being when it is observed). When holding the activation point, be aware of your intention to activate the information of Source in this individual being. It can be helpful to actually say to yourself (or the client if appropriate) at this point: our intention here is to activate this information in the physical body for the purpose of positive transformation.

Again, the natural intention of the blueprint is to maintain order, balance, harmony and flow. From this perspective, intention isn’t something you do; it’s a natural flow you enter into.

We’ll look at specifics of getting into and out of the way of that flow next week. I’m trying to keep these posts fairly brief, as I know how precious time is these days.

More About the Blueprint

By | Published:

hand-petroglyph-southwest_~u16552370 “Also, this brings up for me the question of how-if at all-you work to evoke/invoke the blueprint. For example, in the advanced rolfing training we talked a lot about evoking the line as both a kind of manifestation and an antanae that attracts the blueprint. Your article helps me to make sense of this thought. It seems to me that the line is a manifestation of the blueprint, and that the blueprint is sort of attracted to itself, so that where it is present it becomes more likely to be more prersent. Is that your experience? Also, are there situations or experiences where the blueprint is less likely to be present? ”

This question came in after the last post and I think the answer is of general interest.

First, I think one of the hardest things to grasp about SourcePoint Therapy is how simple it is. How to evoke or invoke the blueprint is to hold the points. It’s pretty Zen-like. The answer to a lot of things comes down to, hold the points.

There was the Zen master who, when asked the usual “what is the way” question, replied “attention, attention, attention.” Evoking the blueprint is paying attention to it. So certainly working with the line does this.

I think that greater consciousness-information field is always present, and we just have to become more present to it. That’s another way of saying what SourcePoint Therapy is about, becoming more present to the presence of order, balance, harmony, flow that is always there.
