Integrating

No matter what teachings I receive or what practices I follow, the question for me is always: how do I integrate this into my daily life? How does this become a part of who I am, not just something I experience while meditating or working with a client or in a workshop or retreat?

So, how can the principles and practices of SourcePoint be applied in everyday life? You can practice it by using it in your work with clients, family or friends. You can visualize the points to experience connection to Source. But how does it help in those every day situations of stress and conflict we all experience?

Look at things from the perspective of Order, Balance, Harmony and Flow. Take time to question: what does this situation need to bring a greater balance to it, a greater flow? An answer may immediately appear. More likely, you will just hold the question in your mind and let it guide you. Once you have asked that question, your deep intention becomes to act in alignment with that fundamental flow, and that will have its effect. The question itself opens a door into insights, into awareness. To be able to stop and ask the question in the midst of a conflict is a moment of detachment, of awareness.

In any given situation, you can ask yourself: how do I stay connected to Source in this particular situation? How do I ground myself? And, perhaps most importantly, how do I activate that information of Source in this situation? No matter what the circumstance, you can take a moment to visualize the Diamond Points around yourself. Ask yourself: what point does this situation need the most? Is it connection, or grounding, or activation? Any difficult situation wants transformation, that’s a given, but which of the other three points do you need to dwell on, spend some time with, in order to bring that transformation? As you visualize the Diamond Points for yourself you bring that energy into the room, into the situation. Human health isn’t just a matter of individual health: it’s the health of a relationship, a community. As you visualize the points for yourself you remind yourself of a simple fact: change begins with you, not with what the other(s) may or may not do.

The activation point is very helpful in a common pattern: when we know what we should do, or want to do, or have learned we need to do, but we stay stuck in acting according to the same old patterns. The information required for transformation is there, but it still isn’t activated. In these instances you might find yourself moving quickly through the source point, pausing a little longer at the grounding point, and spending a long time with the activation point before moving onto the transformation point. This can be done in meditating with the points for yourself or doing them for someone else.

Source, Grounding, Activation, Transformation: these points are not abstract concepts. Every day I feel them creating an energetic structure that supports me in so many different situations: the loom upon which I weave the patterns of my 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.

Immersion

When we do energy work, bodywork, or any other form of work with people it is important to look at whether that work energizes and recharges us, strengthens us, or whether we feel drained by it. This is where the integration of SourcePoint Therapy into other modalities can be very helpful, because it is a simple fact that when we are simply holding those four fundamental points, Source, Grounding, Activation and Transformation, if we attune ourselves, we are also being supported. We are getting nourished.

During most of a session with a client you are focused consciously on the client, working actively according to your modality to release blockages and facilitate the flow of healing information. During the scan your focus is certainly on the client. However, any time when you are holding the points, your focus should simply be on the points, the blueprint, and the flow of information. Then you also benefit.

In holding the points, especially the Source point, actually withdraw your conscious attention from the client, and focus on your body, specifically the palm of the hand as you hold the point. Notice the sensations. It may not be anything dramatic. There may sometimes be warmth or tingling or some other sensation, but that’s neither good nor bad, desirable or undesirable. Just feel yourself holding the point. Feel your mind touching the palm of your hand, resting in the palm of the hand.

As you hold the point, regardless of whether you say it to the client or not, be aware that you are connecting to the blueprint of health, and that information is flowing freely, not just to the client but to you. It is doing what it needs to do for the client and it is doing what it needs to do for you.

You can meditate with the blueprint and immerse yourself in it even when you are not holding the points. From the SourcePoint perspective, the body is a manifestation of the blueprint, of that information of order, balance, harmony and flow that gives rise to life and sustains life. The body itself expresses the delicate balance, the amazing flow, the precise information that is the nature of the blueprint.

When you immerse yourself in the experience of the natural rhythm of the body, you are immersing yourself in the blueprint, and the simplest way to do that is to pay attention to your breath. This is the key to connecting with the blueprint on your own, for yourself. As you focus on the rhythm of the breath, the in-breath and out-breath, just being aware of its natural rhythm, watching it slow itself down or speed itself up, you are immersing yourself in the blueprint, the fundamental pattern of order, balance, harmony and flow that supports life.

Just as you hold the four points for another person, when you want to immerse yourself in the blueprint, you can also imagine the four points around you. It’s easiest lying down but possible otherwise. Let your mind dwell briefly in each point. Imagine your mind is your hand; hold the point in your imagination just as your hand would hold the point for someone else. Your mind moves to each point. Your mind rests at that point and moves on.

A fundamental gift of learning and practicing SourcePoint Therapy is that it directly nourishes you as well as your client.
