SourcePoint and the Spiral

By | Published:

Painting by Bob Schrei

In the natural world, spirals are everywhere. Nebulae, hurricanes, the chambered nautilus, the cochlea of the inner ear, the heart of the sunflower, indeed in the muscle fibers of the human heart, and at the heart of a lettuce or a cabbage. On the top of a baby’s head. In the DNA molecule, in the rose.

There is the 3-D spiral, there is the spiral of Archimedes. There is the logarithmic or equiangular spiral, also called the Golden Spiral, based on the Divine Proportion, or Phi, that emerges from the Golden Rectangle.

All spirals emerge from a single fixed point and expand from that point.

People often ask why, when we work with so many geometric structures in SourcePoint Therapy, why do we not work with the spiral?

The answer is simple. We do. We are always working with the spiral. Every single protocol of SourcePoint is working with the spiral, always.

Order, Balance, Harmony, Flow. The Golden Spiral arises from the point, from the line, from the Golden Rectangle.

When we work with point and line, the Diamond Points, the Golden Rectangle Points, the Navel Point, the Sacral Points, the Mid-line, the Gold Points in the Chakras, we are working directly with the Source of the spiral, we are working with the information of what is called the Golden Mean, the exqusite mathematical perfection that underlies all creation, as in the Fibonacci sequence.

Geometry is the language of the Blueprint. When we connect to the Blueprint of health for the human being, we access that information of Order, Balance, Harmony and Flow embodied in geometric pattern, that directs the flow of vital life force into manifest form.

Priya Hemenway in her book Divine Proportion:Phi in Art, Nature and Science says:

“The eye of every spiral is a dynamic place where all opposites meet and where life and death are one phenomenon. All the forces that create growth and keep it in balance are at work in the eye, the source. ”

We could say, the eye of the spiral is the single point, yes, the Source Point.

 

See the book referenced above for more detail on the spiral.

Bob and I have just returned from teaching Module One and Two in Ireland, and then Module Three in Germany. It’s been a while since I’ve experienced all three in a row. It’s a powerful experience and reminds me more than ever that SourcePoint training is not only about learning techniques; it’s a personal healing journey.

This time, I felt an infinitesimal and yet huge shift in my perspective, my body, my mind: the continuing shift towards health as my context. Of course I have been aware of that principle all along and felt myself changed by it: that in SourcePoint we focus on health, not specific illness, not the story of disease. But this time, something happened. We’ve all had that experience, when what we are told, and repeat, becomes suddenly, deeply real.

I saw, looking back over years and years, my focus on and fascination with my symptoms, how they have defined my reality. I have experienced firsthand what we talk about in SourcePoint: becoming organized around my trauma rather than the inherent health present in my connection to the Blueprint. I am not making a judgment about that. I evidently had to learn to pay attention to what was happening in my body and take care of myself, and to understand the nature and the message of the symptoms. I had to learn to value this precious body. To believe in this body and its inherent health, to shift the emphasis from my story.

What is health? That question comes all the time. I see now it is the very existence of this body, right here, just as it is, with all its imperfections and imbalances. It’s that simple. What is health? It’s life. The incomprehensibly powerful thrust of the universal life force energy into material being is pure wellness; it is Order, Balance, Harmony and Flow, it is the activity of the Blueprint.

Everyone of us has that force within us now. Not some day in the future, maybe, when we get better. It’s there always, when we are sick, when we are tired, when we are depressed, when we are happy, when we are born, and yes, when we are dying.

In this body we are riding a wave of health, of life force manifesting. The more connected we are to our fundamental reality, the blueprint of health, the longer the wave, perhaps. It all depends. On how the forces we experience while in the body, the forces of trauma and karma, and ancestry and environment, to name a few, interact with that force of inherent health. Our choices have a lot to do with our state of health but they are not the only defining factor. Trauma, karma, ancestry, and environment are powerful forces also. The awareness we bring to our experience, the love we give and receive, how we communicate with others, the connection to the greater Order, Balance, Harmony and Flow, so much affects health.

However, the simple fact is, health is a powerful presence in our lives, innately, inherently, undeniably. The more we focus on it, the stronger we get.

And, I can say from personal experience, a simple daily practice of Diamond Points, Guardian Points and Navel Point provides a clear, directed, powerful way to focus on health, to call it forth, to enter into it, to experience it.

(If you haven’t yet experienced SourcePoint training, the Diamond Point Meditation from our book is a way to begin)

Harmony

Reflecting on words, we bring their energies, qualities and vibrations more present. “The word” brings us closer to the energies it symbolizes; “the word” has the power to invoke its own meaning and actualize it in the manifest world. The ancients knew this. Indeed, one of the best known creation myths begins with the words “In the beginning was the word…”

And that word was what philosophers and theologians call Logos. The original meaning of this in ancient Greek is simply word, speech, or thought. It came to have implications of the divine ordering intelligence and principle behind everything, the word that was in the beginning. The structure and pattern of the cosmic order.

Which brings us to the Greek word Kosmos. The original meaning in Greek is “embroidery,” which implies “the orderliness and harmony of woven patterns with which the universe is embroidered and moves. Kosmos signified the honorable and ‘right behavior’ of the whole, the harmonious orchestration of the world’s pattern and processes.” (A Beginners Guide to Constructing the Universe, by Michael Schneider, )

“As re-stated by Plato, to discover kosmos in the world was to reveal kosmos in one’s own soul.” (The Passion of the Western Mind, Richard Tarnas) This is what we work with in SourcePoint, the reflection of the cosmic order within our own body, mind, and spirit.

In the philosophies and studies of ancient Greece, the inherent harmony of the universe was discovered by investigating the underlying ordered patterns, the mathematical relationships, that are the fabric of material reality, the kosmos. The Greek word harmonia means “fitting together.” (Beginners Guide, once again) When all things fit together in an ordered way, we have harmony.

When things fit together, work together, communicate with each other, dance together, play together, move together for the greater good, in the greater good, we have harmony. When our actions and relationships, our bodies and minds and spirits, are connected to and informed by the cosmic harmony, the cosmic order, then, things go well. When the systems of the body co-ordinate according to the principles of order inherent in kosmos, we have harmony.

Harmony is another word for equanimity. In these times, equanimity is essential. The waves of the world rise and fall, storm and subside, storm and subside, around us and within us. Emotions run high, demands are many. We live on information overload. There’s not enough time. People interact with their devices rather than each other. Stress is the norm.

Order, Balance, Harmony, Flow. Remember. It’s who we are. We experience that order and harmony in our breath, in our heartbeat, in the natural world, in the words themselves. We need to remind ourselves of that a million times a day these days, in order to maintain health, well-being, equanimity, and the capacity for responsible choice and action in the world.

Logos, Kosmos, Harmonia…..

 

Spanda: The Creative Vibration and Movement of Universal Energy

By | Published:

Continuing the exploration of echoes of ancient wisdom in the principles of SourcePoint. This time from the book “The Doctrine of Vibration: An Analysis of the Doctrines and Practices of Kashmiri Shivaism” by Mark S. C. Dyckowski. From Chapter 3, ‘The Universal Activity of Universal Consciousness.’

If you take the time to read this, notice how the words themselves carry the vibration they speak of. Immersing oneself in the vocabulary of the cosmic order indeed connects one to that cosmic order.

The author here is speaking of “Spanda.” Spanda, in Sanskrit, is a word that describes the inherent creative vibration of the Absolute, the Universal Energy, as it moves into and manifests as vibrant form. That vibration is present in every natural form, it whispers and breathes and pulses in the depths of our being. It is regarded as the source of life itself.

” The motion of absolute consciousness is a creative movement, a transition from an uncreated state of Being to the created state of Becoming. In this sense, Being is in a state of perpetual Becoming; it constantly phenomenalises into finite expression…. Thus, the universal character of Being is expressed in the radiant form of each phenomena. Rightly understood, Being and Becoming are the inner and outer faces of universal consciousness which becomes spontaneously manifest, through its inherent power, as this polarity…”

Let’s look at this from the SourcePoint perspective.

In SourcePoint we would say that this pulsation, this vibration, carries the information of what we call the Blueprint, the information of Order, Balance, Harmony, Flow, inherent in Source.

Reflect on the statement ..”Being is in a perpetual state of Becoming…” Not only becoming, but becoming ITSELF, that is, a natural finite expression of the inherent Order, Balance, Harmony and Flow. Holding the Diamond Points, connecting with the Diamond Points through our energy work practice or meditation,we are connecting with that creative moment, Being into Becoming, that moment of manifestation. As we dwell in that moment we are nourished, strengthened, supported. We are naturally brought into further alignment with that Order, Balance, Harmony and Flow that is our fundamental nature; the ground of our life, our health and our well-being.

We can say, to paraphrase and modify, that the universal character of Being is expressed in the radiant form of each of us. In each person who walks in the door asking for help. In each person we encounter each day. And in ourselves. We can say that each of us is the outer face of the universal consciousness, radiantly manifest. As we begin to know ourselves in that way, it changes… everything.

Ancient Wisdom

I love exploring writings of ancient wisdom and finding resonances with SourcePoint. My current source is “The Dawning Moon of the Mind: Unlocking the Pyramid Texts” by Susan Brind Morrow. It’s a new and brilliant, poetic and spirit-filled, translation. The Pyramid Texts are etched on the walls of a burial chamber of a long ago pharaoh, Unis (also known as Unas).

As Morrow interprets these verses, they are instructions for the soul of Unis and its journey upon death. Really, any soul. And the texts are explorations of the nature of soul, self, universe and Source.

Here’s what she says of a passage from the Antechamber, North Wall. She’s discussing hieroglyphs of falcons, twin falcons:

The twin is the Platonic concept of the template: you exist before you exist, and you exist after you exist, because there is a pattern that is the template for your existence, the geometric essence of your existence….(p.71)

So once again, in the 24th century BC, engraved in symbols on a stone wall, we find evidence of the deep knowledge of what we call the Blueprint. That’s exactly how we define the Blueprint of health for the human being that we work with in SourcePoint; it is the template for our existence. There is power in lineage, and the Blueprint has its lineage, it has been known in some form always by ancient cultures, its presence can be found in cultures and times throughout the world and its history.

Here’s more from these same texts. …’ma’a’ (is) the Egyptian word for ‘truth,’ which comes into Greek as ‘moira,’ ‘fate.’ The hieroglyphic word is spelled with a ruler, indicating that measurement is ultimate truth, the cosmic order, the invisible underlying pattern that manifests in geometry, in astronomy, in sound.

Morrow continues, The hieroglyphic word ‘herw’ [sound, vibration] is often paired with the word ma’a ‘truth’ as the noble goal of life: one strives at death to have accomplished ‘ma’a herw,’ not to speak the truth or have a true voice but to be true to the clean underlying pattern of what one is, the ma’a herw- the true vibration, the vibration of truth. (p.88)

This strikes me as another way of describing the Blueprint, the deepest truth of our being, of who we are. The Blueprint contains the essential information of Order, Balance, Harmony and Flow necessary for matter and life to manifest from the universal energy. The Blueprint is our fundamental truth, what we all have in common as human beings. We embody that Order, Balance, Harmony and Flow, that truth. We are the vibration of truth.

Here’s more on truth from “The Dawning Moon of the Mind.:”

Ma’at, the embodiment of truth, marked with a feather, is the continuous, measured uncontrollable movement through space that is the natural order of things. The truth is the innate order of the universe that underlies life on earth as a physical reality. It is visible at any time and contradicts the assumption that death is the ultimate reality. The ultimate reality is the underlying order and its pervasive beauty. Even disorder is ruled by, folds into and emerges from ultimate order. (p.216)

Life and death are inextricably intertwined, their rhythm is that of the cosmic order, the natural order. In the material world, we live with polarities, everything contains the seed of its opposite. Thus from order, disorder can arise. From balance, imbalance, from harmony, disharmony, and from flow, rigidity. But the opposite is inevitably true, and so from disorder, order can return, and so on.  Cycles and spirals and turnings of wheels within wheels. What a marvelous universe is our home. What a marvelous awareness allows us to experience ourselves, our true nature, the fundamental beauty that everything is, that we are.

On this night of the full moon of February 10, 2017, I wish you the experience of the fullness of who you are, the beauty of your fundamental nature, the wisdom of your essential mind, and the love that dwells in the heart of everything.

 

Words for These Times

By | Published:

star-field

 

I’m dreaming only words
no image
radiant dark
streaming with words
that disappear upon awaking
mist in the morning sun.
Within us
canyons carved by the waters of experience
older than time
deeper than mind
flooded now
gates opened.
What I have learned in this life:
when the day seems dark
turn within
listen.
There is a voice beyond –
beyond thought, feeling, pain, fear and hope.
In the subliminal unworded spaces of night
Spirit speaks.
Remember
in the ancient rythyms
of life, of time, of the spirit, it is arranged so –
that each night, in the dark
we return home
to receive guidance
for the journey of the day,
the bringing of the light.

Order, Balance, Harmony, Flow: words for these times. Words that are needed when things of this world seem disordered, out of balance, out of harmony, polarized and stuck in old pattern. What is the place of SourcePoint in today’s world? This question has arisen often in my mind and heart recently. And the answer is simple. Its principles and practices connect us to that Order, Balance, Harmony and Flow beyond the disturbance of the material world. In every indigenous culture, there is the understanding that connection to that greater Order is essential for the world to survive and for people to live harmoniously with each other and all their relations of the earth. Many of us have lost that connection. Much of the suffering of those on this planet arises from that loss. This is a theme we hear often repeated these days.

Therefore, SourcePoint has much to offer, not by replacing longstanding ways of making that connection, but by helping those who have lost it to find it once again. More and more I understand that SourcePoint is not simply a set of protocols to be learned by therapists to help them in their healing work with others. That’s very important, and we receive a lot of feedback as to how effective it is in that.

But there’s a need in each one of us to connect with the fundamental Order, Balance, Harmony and Flow each day, each moment, over and over, just to stay sane and balanced and centered and strong, to be able to navigate the waters of a chaotic and transforming world, to move in alignment with positive forces of transformation. SourcePoint is at its root a meditative practice. When we do it for others, we enter into meditative states of awareness, getting out of the way, allowing that natural order to manifest and do its work, focusing on the Blueprint, not the illness but the inherent health.

When we practice it for ourselves, through meditating with the Diamond Points, with other of the practices, and/or by simply following the breath with the rhythm and the mantra of “Order, Balance, Harmony and Flow” we personally have the opportunity to enter into the state of meditative awareness, get out of our own way, and allow a natural state of order, harmony and peacefulness to arise within us. Then we are much more prepared to function in today’s world.

Nowhere in the external world are we going to find that peacefulness, except in nature, and even then, if our minds and hearts are disturbed, that energy can’t penetrate. And in no way can we act effectively in a disturbed world when our minds and hearts cannot find their center. There are countless ways to work with one’s mind and heart. In the coming year I would like to work more with people to experience SourcePoint as the valuable resource it is for working with oneself, not just with others. I’ll be focusing on that in my posts on this blog in coming months. We have a meditation retreat scheduled for the fall of 2017.

Order, Balance, Harmony and Flow.

May all beings be happy, peaceful and free of suffering.

Intention, Context and Belief Systems

01The Blueprint of Perfect Health

Order, Balance, Harmony, Flow

Painting by Bob Schrei

SourcePoint Therapy is founded on the intention to connect to the information of the Blueprint and to allow that information to work in the human body to bring greater Order, Balance, Harmony and Flow. All the practices are simply ways to do this.

When we connect to the Blueprint of health for human being, we shift the context of our work (on ourselves, or for another) from illness to health. The Blueprint becomes the context. Your context becomes Order, Balance, Harmony, and Flow, health, rather than ill-health. If you are a practitioner, as soon as your clients walk into the room, they are walking into a field of health.

The intention of the SourcePoint practitioner is entirely focused on health.

Often when discussing this, people ask for a definition of health. For the purposes of practicing SourcePoint, essentially, health is health. It isn’t necessary to analyze. The word itself carries the vibration of health. Don’t be distracted by debating the point, just focus on HEALTH. Assume the Blueprint knows what health is!

The context shifts as soon as the practitioner holds the Diamond Points, as soon as the blockage is addressed; all this shifts the context.

When there is this focus on health, people leave your environment with a lot of new information about health, in the body, the mind, and the spirit.

For most people their belief systems are their context, and their belief systems arise from their experience. Part of what you are working with in shifting context is to help a person (or yourself) to begin to believe in the possibility of health. If a person has a chronic illness, negative belief systems can develop about the possibility of getting well. It is harder for healing to happen in that context.

“Context” is an actual energetic structure, created by the thought-forms that populate the energy field, including the body. Belief systems are actual energetic structures. It isn’t necessary to see them, but understand that the energy and information of a belief system can work for years, for lifetimes, after a trauma, to overwhelm the healthy energetic structure. In SourcePoint we work with energetic structures that arise from the Blueprint of health.

From the SourcePoint perspective it isn’t necessary to identify the belief systems that are affecting a person. Very often they are unconscious. This is what is very confusing for people when they want to do affirmations for healing. The conscious mind is saying the affirmation and the unconscious is actively holding on to the unconscious belief system.

SourcePoint Therapy provides a way to address these belief systems without having to uncover them all and examine them in detail. You don’t have to argue with yourself, you don’t have to find affirmations to antidote old belief systems. Connecting to the Blueprint, grounding in the information of the Blueprint, allows the Blueprint to shift the context to health rather than ill-health.

Shifts in context require patience and effort. They don’t just happen overnight. Intentions are powerful, but to actually shift your own context, let alone help to shift someone else’s, takes that patience and effort.

Practitioners’ belief systems also start to change as they see the result of focusing on health, connecting to the Blueprint. This shift in the practitioner facilitates the work. If you truly believe with all your heart that the person who walks into the room has the potential for health inherent in them and that there is a way of awakening that potential for health, then that is going to make a difference in your interaction with the person, in the way that the client feels, and eventually in their physical progress.

Remember, it is actually the Blueprint that is shifting the context, but your activity as a practitioner in connecting with the Blueprint, connecting the client, believing in that full potential for health, all this is something you can do, for the benefit of yourself and others.

The Starfish Are Dying and No One Knows Why

By | Published:

iemanja122

Yemanja is the Goddess of the Ocean in the traditions of Africa, Brazil and many other places. Yesterday, February 2nd, she was celebrated as she is every year in Salvador, Brazil, where she also goes by the name Janaina. Thousands of people gather to make offerings to her on this day.

Yesterday I read this news in the headlines: The Starfish are Dying and No One Knows Why.

Traditionally, Janaina is crowned with a starfish and often wears a blue cloak covered with golden starfish.

All up and down the west coast, off California, large numbers of starfish are dissolving, literally turning to goo, according to reports. Scientists are mystified. They theorize a bacterial infection. There is flurry of activity and concern as they try to discover the cause.

The starfish is the special love of Janaina, her messenger. If we have ears to hear or eyes to see, what does this dying tell us?

The resonance of these two events disturbs me deeply, because there is a third event that occurred simultaneously. Recently I was given a glimpse of a world of the future. No time frame, no prediction. A glimpse that is so sadly easy to believe, given the drought in California, the cold of our winters and the heat of our summers already, the ongoing pollution of our waters and air.

The earth was brown. The rivers were brown, the oceans were brown, the forests were dead. Our beloved earth, as we usually see it imaged from space, is still a vibrant green and blue and white. In the view I saw, it was dark brown, and rust, and black. Even the clouds surrounding it were brown. I wept.

Then the next day I read of the starfish dying.

I take the dying of the starfish as a message from Yemanja/Janaina. Another wake-up call among so many we are consistently ignoring.

Many years ago, in 1988 to be exact, the Awareness said the only, yes, the only, thing that we need to be concerned about in relation to the future existence of life on earth was climate change, then called global warming, and that this climate change was related to our human activities, in essence, to our human greed and ignorance and aggression.

So, we know this. Not everyone, but undoubtedly everyone reading this. I don’t know what to do, and I don’t have a lot of suggestions to make. We know such a deep sea change has to happen. And I don’t think it is any accident we have that phrase “sea change.” We need a tidal wave of change, and that change has to be in human consciousness.

In SourcePoint, we talk about far vision: The need to hold in our hearts, minds and spirit the vision of a world transformed, a world of co-operation, communication and sharing rather than a world fueled by aggression, domination, control and greed. Human lives lived in alignment with and awareness of the fundamental Order, Balance, Harmony, Flow.

This morning I am finding it especially challenging to hold that vision.

I realize as I write that I was given in that image of the brown, discolored earth a direct and simple way to work with my fears, grief, anger, helplessness, and with the need to hold a far vision. I can just keep seeing that one future possibility, that brown earth among the stars, and see it transforming back into that image I have loved from the moment I first saw it, that lovely sphere with its oceans and forests and clouds.

I can see again that brown earth turning to green and blue and white, vibrant and alive, over and over and over. I can breath life into that image. We all can. We all need to. No matter what the outcome.

SourcePoint also provides one way among many for us to remember the sacredness of nature. As I become more aware of the underlying exquisite, breathtaking, seemingly impossible order and precision of nature, I understand deeply the meaning of the word sacred. I hold my breath in wonder and awe. I return to the faith that this cosmic order is stronger and deeper and wider than our human ignorance.

And I honor Yemanja, the spirit of the waters, the goddess of the ocean. The day before all this happened a friend sent me an article by David Spangler, a spiritual teacher who was originally known for his work at Findhorne. He wrote of the water spirits, and how one morning recently he had received a message from a water spirit in a glass of water. The communication from the water spirit was simple. “When you use water, please send loving, healing and uplifting energy (Light) to the kingdom of the water spirits for many of our kind are suffering and under siege from the continuing and increasing pollution by humanity. We need your support and blessing from which we can draw strength.”

I received this almost exact message from the water spirits many years ago. It was a time when I was praying for rain, which living in New Mexico under increasing conditions of drought, I used to do regularly. Not any more. The water spirits told me: We are exhausted. We are doing everything we can but we are exhausted. We have always helped you but now we need your help. I was told that to acknowledge them, to honor them, to sing to them, to meditate with them, to offer them my recognition and love, all these nourished and sustained them and gave them strength. I was told that for us human beings to keep praying, asking over and over for what they are not able to give, exhausts them further. Ever since, I try to make this a daily practice, to offer them strength and ask how I can help.

I think the starfish are giving us a simple message: we need to pay immediate, deep, attention to the waters of life and spirit, and these two are inextricably intertwined.

In SourcePoint , we don’t work directly with the spirits of nature. We work with the realm of the Blueprint, of that cosmic order from which spirits and life and the material world arise. But as we connect with that realm on a regular basis, that information of the Blueprint awakens our knowing, our memory, of the presence of Spirit and spirits. Nature is light, nature is order, nature is spirit and energy. Nature is beauty. Nature is life. We are all of that, spirit, energy, light, order, and beauty.

So this morning I am writing this to heal, for the moment, the deep despair that I felt when I saw so vividly those dead forests, the brown oceans, the disappearance of the color and the light and beauty that is given us as a precious gift and which we have so abused. I am writing to remember that far vision, to return to it, to hold it in my heart, always. I am writing to honor the presence of sprit and light in our world.

For human beings to recognize the sacredness of this world, deeply, would save it. May we all who know this, remember this, every day. May we all find our ways to work directly with the trees, the plants, and the waters of this earth.

INTUIÇÃO

Translated by Marilu Reis

Quando você sonha, você enxerga de dentro de si mesmo, sua visão normal?

Ou você vê de cima e além, do lado de fora, movendo-se no sonho?

O que você prefere?

Estar dentro ou fora?

As pessoas falam sobre estar dentro do corpo.

Onde está este corpo?

Ou, onde ele não está?

As pessoas desejam seguir o coração.

Que coração é este exatamente?

Eu quero seguir o grande coração

na raiz, o núcleo, o centro,

que pulsa no corpo e nas estrelas,

dia e noite,

inundação e tempestade e quietude,

semente e flor,

que nunca, nem por um momento, para de bater.

Acordado na noite profunda, escura e brilhante de lua cheia de setembro,

entre a expiração e a inspiração

em um espaço tão familiar, mas tão desconhecido,

o coração sussurra

Sonhe você

fora de você.

Na prática da SourcePoint Therapy® estamos sempre falando da importância de ficar fora do caminho. Isto se aplica especialmente ao tema da intuição e seu lugar na SourcePoint. A maioria das pessoas que são atraídas para a SourcePoint, e certamente para a prática da medicina energética em geral, são aquelas que querem seguir o coração, desenvolver e confiar na sua intuição. O que isso significa, seguir seu coração, confiar na sua intuição e exatamente o que significa intuição na prática da SourcePoint, na qual nossa principal preocupação deve estar ligada e ser orientada pelo Blueprint universal da saúde?

O que as pessoas comumente consideram a “minha intuição” pode ser descrito como um aspecto da consciência, sensí­vel, empático e receptivo, que é capaz de acessar a informação da ordem maior e da consciência maior, alinhando-se e sendo guiado por esta ordem e consciência. Entretanto, a maior parte do tempo, na maioria dos indiví­duos, em variados graus, este fluxo de consciência, sensí­vel, receptivo, perceptivo e empático, está consideravelmente alterado por opiniões, julgamentos, idéias, experiências do passado e hábitos.

A intuição pessoal é muito influenciada pela experiência pessoal. Isto pode ter grande valor, mas se você quer contar com sua intuição como base para o trabalho de cura, a prática diária de alguma forma de autolimpeza é essencial. Para poder confiar na sua intuição é importante realizá-la antes do trabalho. Limpar o canal de intuição é um passo necessário para que você realmente possa perceber e receber com clareza.

A pessoa sempre percebe que as sensações no seu corpo transmitem informações, e sim, este é outro canal de intuição. Entretanto, o corpo também é uma consciência, que carrega experiências passadas condicionadas, hábitos e memória. O canal também é frequentemente alterado por emoções e padrões.
A função da intuição na SourcePoint Therapy® poderia ser, por exemplo, ajudar o profissional na prática de trazer a informação do Blueprint para o corpo. Ela pode ajudá-lo a permanecer aberto à orientação do Blueprint para o trabalho que está sendo realizado, reconhecendo sempre, que isto é tudo que você está fazendo, facilitando o fluxo daquela informação. A intenção de permitir que sua percepção intuitiva pessoal seja guiada pelo Blueprint proporciona alguma proteção contra a projeção. O Blueprint oferece um ponto de referência externa que ajuda a purificar a intuição.

As pessoas que realizam o trabalho corporal intuitivo geralmente se referem a “estar sendo atraídas” a trabalhar em uma determinada área do corpo. Esta mesma frase é usada algumas vezes em relação a decisões da vida, “ser atraído” para um determinado lugar, pessoa ou situação. Nós recomendamos que as pessoas tenham cuidado com o “ser atraído”. Pense nesta frase. O que atrai você? É a sua história sendo atraída por algo familiar? A maior parte do tempo, nós somos atraí­dos para aquilo que é familiar, para o que repercute em nossa experiência restrita. Existe uma linha tênue entre ser atraído e projetar nossa própria experiência sobre o outro.

Muitas vezes, as pessoas consideram a SourcePoint “contra-intuitiva”. Ao escanear para localizar os bloqueios que obstruem o fluxo de informação do Blueprint, a pessoa pode ser atraída para uma determinada área, onde espera encontrar o bloqueio. Se ela não está ligada a sua intuição, sempre ficará surpresa ao encontrá-lo em um local completamente diferente.

A transformação, no trabalho de cura ou na vida pessoal, pede para nós irmos além de nossas expectativas, julgamentos e mesmo de nossa preciosa intuição pessoal. Na SourcePoint, nós entregamos nossa intuição a este terceiro ponto, o Blueprint. Nós transferimos nosso conhecimento, experiência, idéias, opiniões e julgamentos, e nossa intuição para a ordem fundamental do universo, a sabedoria inata do corpo como uma expressão desta ordem universal.

A Ordem, Equilíbrio, Harmonia e Fluxo fundamentais, inerentes na energia universal, são a Fonte de nossa existência. São a origem, o alimento e a sustentação da vida. É por isso que dizemos que a natureza do Blueprint é o amor. Assim, na prática da SourcePoint, nós deixamos que nossos corações fiquem a serviço do bem maior.

SourcePoint Day 3Blackboard sketch by Bob Schrei

This month’s post is contributed by Bob Schrei, and is an important reminder where our focus lies in the practice of SourcePoint Therapy®. It is specifically intended for practitioners who have been trained in our workshops.

In the three basic modules of SourcePoint Therapy® the emphasis is on placing your focus on bringing the information of the Blueprint to the blockage rather than on the systems of the body. The reason for this is that practitioners can be too involved in the systems of the body to be able to practice SourcePoint effectively. They are constantly being drawn into the story that is unfolding in the soma rather than keeping their focus on the information of the Blueprint. They are being drawn into the details of various parts and systems of the body, including the energetic, rather than keeping their focus on the health of the system.

Remember that SourcePoint can be practiced effectively by people who do not have extensive training in manual therapies, and in fact, it is often easier for them precisely because they do not have the background of continually tracking what is happening in the system, either at the structural/functional level, cranial/sacral level, fluid level, nervous system level, meridian and chakra levels or any other system of the body.

Many practitioners rely on getting information from the body to guide them in their work. In SourcePoint that is not the focus. Of course you keep track of what is happening and check in with clients as to how they are feeling and experiencing the work. But it is the information of the Blueprint that guides our work, and we are simply bringing the information of the Blueprint to the body. That information, the full potential that we have as human beings for health at every level of our being, is the focus of our attention.

In SourcePoint we speak of the the therapeutic relationship as a triad rather than a dyad. The information, light, and energy of the Blueprint is the third partner in that triad.

Our work as a practioner is to stay connected to that field of information and to keep the client connected to that information. Once rapport is established between you and your client at the beginning of the session, the focus is taken off of the inter-personal relationship and the focus is on connecting the client to their own resources and potential and staying in that field ourselves. We are not “channeling” the information, energy, or light of the Blueprint through our own bodies and fields, but creating the context for that interface to take place.

When I become aware of my attention being drawn into the phenomena of the body, I step back for a moment, connect with my breath, and re-focus my awareness to the information of the Blueprint through the eight-pointed star as a placeholder for the information of the Blueprint, or any of the other methods that we learn in SourcePoint to connect to that field of information.

For those of you who do have extensive backgrounds in a variety of therapeutic modalities it eventually becomes possible to be aware of both your connection to the Blueprint and what is occurring in the soma. But with experience you are able to be aware without letting your fascination be what leads you or forms your practice. The only strategy from a SourcePoint perspective is : How can I more effectively bring the information of the Blueprint to the body?
