SourcePoint, the Soul’s Journey and the Diamond Points

By | Published:

Source Point Field

Painting by Bob Schrei

 

From Source we arise, to Source we return. In that process we find ourselves Grounded, here on this earth, incarnate, embodied. We may experience a profound disconnection from Source. We may lose our awareness of it, of our original Ground.  This loss may take lifetimes, and we may live many lifetimes in that state of disconnection, wandering, pulled and driven. At some point the seed of Source within us is Activated, and that consciousness of what we really are begins to wake up. This waking up may take lifetimes. Eventually Transformation happens, and we are realigned with our fundamental nature even as we are incarnate here on this earth. 

If you are familiar with the Diamond Points of SourcePoint Therapy you know their names:

Source, Grounding, Activation, Transformation.

In each SourcePoint session, or meditation, we begin with these points. They are located in the field around the body and form either a diamond shape or an oval egg shape, depending on whether you connect them with a straight or curved line. You can see them in the painting above.

Each point has its own intention, its function. The intention of the Source Point, the first point, is to strengthen the connection to Source, the universal energy-consciousness, and particularly to the Blueprint of Health for the human being, a specific energy-information field present in Source.

The intention of the Grounding Point is to ground that information of the Blueprint in the body, to remind the body of its original nature of Order, Balance and Harmony.

The Activation Point activates that information in the body and brings Transformation.

The Transformation is a life lived in greater alignment with that Order, Balance, Harmony and Flow that is our original nature, from which we arise, and to which we return, in moments, over lifetimes. The process is a paradox, because we have never really left.

Every single session, and every moment of meditation with and on that connection, brings us fully, for that session, for that moment, into a greater connection with our full potential, with our creative power. SourcePoint works directly with the vast creative power of Source. Importantly, it gives us a structure, a container, within which we can work with that vast creative power with specific intentions. We can channel that power through the information of Blueprint, to help us develop our full potential.

One can see how the Diamond Points provide a map for the spiritual journey. Let’s use the word use soul. These days I use that word interchangeably with spirit, essence, and awareness. It’s that in us that journeys, that experiences everything, that learns, or gets caught up and spends its time incarnate turning on wheels of thought and feeling. It’s that in us that knows love, and beauty, and truth. It’s that in it that chooses. It’s Source manifest in the individual. It’s that within the individual that longs to return home, forgettting it is  home.

So, manifesting from Source into incarnation we Ground, literally. We incarnate, we find ourselves in bodies. We begin to accumulate stories. We become involved in our stories. We suffer from them, we love them, we find great joy in them. We forget ourselves as we live our stories. Over and over and over.  Our awareness (soul, spirit, essence) begins to identify with the story.

As long as we have a strong connection to nature, we are Grounded in the Blueprint, not only our stories. Nature is the universal Blueprint, manifest into all creation, and if we are living in harmony with the natural forces and the spirit/s of nature (the soul, consciousness, essence of nature) we are not grounded only in our individual stories.

The more we lose that connection, the more separate we become from nature, the more we lose our connection to Source. That separation brings greed, aggression, ignorance, constant forgetting. That separation comes through identifying more on what I need, what I have to have, what my tribe, or nation, or family or self has to have, rather than on the natural Order, Balance, Harmony and Flow.  It’s a cycle.

And then, somehow our soul suddenly begins to remember. To awaken. That light of consciousness within is Activated.  Activation of the memory within awakens us.

Transformation begings to happen. Our awareness (soul, spirit, essence) is a tiny bit awakened. It begins to make different choices. It sees possibilities of what do do with this human life that have been forgotten.

What I experience is that the regular (not regimented, just – steadily arising) practice of the Diamond Points reminds our whole system of its Source, its true Ground, the need to Activate awareness of that connection in order to Transform. It helps me to live a life more in alignment, more connected, more in the rhythm of my fundamental nature, with more awareness. I remember not only the connection to Source, but the midline of the connection between Transformation Point and Grounding Point. Here, now, on this sacred Ground of earth, is where Transformation occurs. Not at some future date in some other dimension when I’ve finally managed to liberate myself from the inconvenience of this body 🙂 

Therefore every time I meditate with or receive the Diamond Points I’m not only supporting my physical health and wellbing in the moment, I am acknowledging and supporting my soul (spirit, awareness, essence)   I am acknowledging embodiment as no other than the soul’s journey.  I am activating my awareness. I am entering consciously into Transformation.

The Diamond Points, it turns out, illuminate, enhance, contain and support every single spiritual practice I’ve ever done.

And so, I wanted to share that experience in case others might benefit from it. I’m not saying anything new here, just expressing it in the language of SourcePoint. 

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

The Radical Redefinition of Self

By | Published:

E=mc2

Albert Einstein said, after the explosion of the first atom bomb, “Now everything has changed but our way of thinking.” Almost seventy years later this is still true. We have more and more new technologies,and yet we continue to act from the same old belief systems. However, I can’t look at the outside world and make a judgment about that. In the course of my life I’ve acquired many “technologies,” tools for changing my mind and my perspective, and yet, like everyone, I continue to experience that my actions often arise from the old patterns, the old stories, the old way of thinking.

I’ve said many times the path of energy medicine demands a radical re-definition of self. When you’re working with energy, you have to perceive the individual, whether yourself or another, as an energy field, a flow and pattern of energy and light and information. You have to shift your perception of yourself, or another, as a solid “thing” in a world of other solid things. You begin to understand everything as a flow of pattern and information and energy, giving rise to physical manifestation. You begin to understand the significance and absolute accuracy of the Sanskrit greeting “Namaste:” I honor the God in you. You see others and yourself as an incredible, complex, exquisite expression of the universal energy. From these experiences, your way of thinking begins to change.

You work on the premise that we all arise from a common Source, we all have a common ground. No matter what the individual’s perception of that Source is, no matter what the religion, or worldview or belief system, that individual arises from the same Source you do. It becomes more difficult to maintain a sense of opposition.

In relating to others, whether at the individual or group level, you look for the energy blockages. You perceive the flow of energy; you seek Order, Balance, Harmony and Flow.You look for communication, connection, alignment. You begin to perceive existence as a dance of opposites rather than a battle of opposites. You relate to others from this perception.

As we seek to change our thinking, as we explore different “technologies of transformation,” defining the transformation we seek is important. The stated intention of SourcePoint, at the deepest level, is to help each individual realize their full potential as a human being, and that full potential involves the development of a conscious self, the transformation of the self to be in alignment with the universal Order, Balance, Harmony and Flow.

This transformation, this shift in the perception of the self, begins in such a simple way. You hold the Diamond points for someone. These points are off the body. There’s no visible connection between hand and body. In a world of solid things, there’s no reason why anything should happen to the body. The person feels something; there’s an effect. This person has never thought of himself or herself as something other than this physical body, mind, emotions, this particular self. Now, with this experience, something happens inside, a subtle shift, an opening, a questioning: such a small thing, really, in the course of world events, but huge for that person. A door of perception opens, new information comes in, a new understanding of self becomes possible. A seed begins to blossom.

Questions arise: How has my way of relating to a perceived enemy, a perceived threat, changed, as a result of my understanding of energy and flow? How am I still acting from old patterns and information in regards to this? I deeply believe it is the responsibility of each human being to change their way of thinking, perceiving and relating to the world, and that’s how change is going to come. For some people, due to their karma, their change will affect a larger field. For others, it will affect themselves and a few around them. It doesn’t matter. What matters is the ongoing transformation, walking the path of transformation, the transformation of the self and the understanding of the self. In SourcePoint Therapy we are working with transformation.

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

By | Published:

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.
