The Blueprint and Joy

The Blueprint of health that we work with in SourcePoint contains the information of the highest potential of the human being. It supports, sustains and nurtures life. That is what we call love. The nature of the Blueprint is love.

At SourcePoint trainings we observe people come together in the energy field of the Blueprint. We connect with and explore that field together. And over three days, or five days, or six days, we experience together greater and greater joy — in ourselves, in each other, and in our lives here on this earth. It seems the nature of the Blueprint is also what we call joy.

Order, Balance, Harmony, Flow. Love, joy, abundance, health and peace. Our birthrights. Each of these fundamental qualities is inherent in the universal energy, reflected in our individual being. As it is said in Sanskrit Tat Tvam Asi. That you are. You are That.

And yet, in each of these fundamental qualities lies the seed of its opposite. It’s in the nature of things in this material world. From sorrow arises joy, from joy arises sorrow, and so the waves come and go. From birth arises death, and from death, birth. Winter becomes spring becomes summer. In order there is the seed of chaos, and vice versa. As we incarnate into this world, we experience the arising of the opposite. Coming from balance, from harmony, from flow, we experience imbalance, disharmony, rigidity. We become confused and forget the other. We believe the story of the opposite.

SourcePoint is about remembering and experiencing the story of the original. The natural. The fundamental truth of our existence: Order, Balance, Harmony and Flow. And with that experience arises health, and love, and joy. So many practitioners have told us that clients report experiencing hope after their first SourcePoint session. We just keep hearing this. Hope brings joy.

Connection to our original nature opens doors into hope and possibility, joy and healing.

In relation to this, I’ve been reflecting on the popular words “Follow your bliss.” People seem to think this means finding what makes you happy in the world. But I don’t think it means that at all. I think it means””find in yourself that bliss that is your fundamental nature and then follow that, dwell in that, make your choices from that experience.  It’s not an instruction about how doing what you love makes you happy.  It’s a teaching from ancient sages and mystics about how to disengage your state of well-being from the circumstances of the world. That bliss inherent in the universal energy is different from the happiness that comes from doing what you love. It’s limitless well-being. And living from that brings a joy much deeper than the happiness dependent on circumstance.

That state of consciousness, that limitless well-being, is open to each of us, at every moment. It supports us at every moment.

People tell us frequently that meditating with the Diamond Points regularly puts them in touch with that limitless well-being. People also report that doing the Diamond Points for themselves before moving on to their customary meditation practice helps them to settle into it more smoothly.

It seems that just as SourcePoint supports other healing modalities, it also supports whatever spiritual practice one has undertaken. Of course. The Blueprint contains the information of the highest potential of the human being. And realizing that is what all spiritual practice is about.

I see more and more that SourcePoint is a meditative practice. As we hold the points for another, or for ourselves, as we scan, attentively, carefully, as we connect with the Blueprint through other SourcePoint practices, we enter into a state of meditative Awareness that holds all stories, all opposites, all possibilities, in Awareness. And, it is through that embrace of it all that we come to an experience, however momentary, of that limitless well-being.

None of this is idealistic and abstract. Order, Balance, Harmony, Flow. Bliss. Love. Joy. Peace. Light. Well-being. All these are words for the same experience that is in us, around us, available to us, through whatever of the countless thresholds we choose to cross. Tat Tvam Asi.

SourcePoint Therapy: Exploring the Blueprint of Health

 

Intention, Context and Belief Systems

By | Published:

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 Power of Awareness

By | Published:

star sketchSketch by Bob Schrei

The ground of our practice of SourcePoint is Awareness – with a capital A to emphasize its all-pervading presence, the Awareness that we take so for granted.

Every moment, we are aware. We see, we feel, we taste and touch, smell, think, perceive, observe, remember, we hear, we make choices. Our Awareness is operating always, but our learned tendency is to focus on what we perceive, not on the process of perceiving. We pay attention to and get caught up in those objects and experiences of our Awareness, not the Awareness itself.

Awareness is the common thread that weaves through every activity, every emotion, every belief. Through good experiences and trauma alike, our Awareness perceives, experiences, learns, and becomes conditioned to certain responses.

Through meditation and in our daily life, as we become aware of our Awareness, our focus shifts from the outer circumstance to the Awareness itself. And that Awareness is a universal experience. Everyone who talks, laughs, cries, has opinions, makes judgments, makes mistakes, experiences, learns, denies, every single being we encounter, human or not, shares the same Awareness we experience every single day.

The awareness of that Awareness is a unifying experience. It is harder to stand outside and judge. It is easier to set aside one’s own perspective, conditioned by one’s own experience. And, as we say over and over again, “getting out of the way” is an important ingredient in effective SourcePoint practice. So here getting out of the way isn’t an active exercise. It’s simply the shift of attention from one’s own conditioned experience and beliefs to that presence of universal Awareness within each of us.

Just try spending a day being aware of your Awareness. When seeing, be aware that you are seeing. We take it so for granted. Pay less attention to what you see and more to the incredible fact that you are seeing. When you hear, listen, with intense pleasure, to the sound, no matter what it is, and be aware of your Awareness. And so on. When thoughts arise, realize it is simply your mind doing what your mind does. Awareness is naturally spacious and all-encompassing and…. Its tendency is to fill itself up.

Let your day be a meditation. It’s so perfectly possible, without great strain or effort, because, all you are doing is noticing what is always there, what is always functioning, what is at the core of your being.

When you focus on Awareness, it expands. Or, rather, your awareness of Awareness expands. You become aware of the vastness, the spaciousness, the endlessness of it. You are aware of being held in a vast space of Awareness. In the Tibetan tradition they call it the Mother Awareness and the Child Awareness. From that space of Mother Awareness, your thoughts are like little children playing on the swings. You keep a close eye on them, to make sure they don’t get out of hand, but you let them play.

To become more aware of Awareness is to enhance your skill as a practitioner of energy medicine. The field we work with is vast and sentient, full of subtle nuances and variable frequencies. Again, the common thread, that which notes and observes all phenomena, is Awareness.

Through Awareness, we connect to the Blueprint. Entering into a state of greater Awareness with the intention of connecting to the Blueprint, it happens naturally, without strain.

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.

Reflections from Awareness: Peace on Earth

By | Published:

myPicBlackboard Sketch by Bob Schrei

Excerpt from an Awareness Session* with Bob and Donna, New Years Day, 2014

For the new year, let us speak about peace.

Peace is not the absence of conflict. Peace is found in the response to conflict. In the material world, conflict arises. It is in the nature of the material world that there will be tension between oppposites. There will be differing perspectives and points of view.

Peace means being able to harmonize, to adjust one’s frequency to the frequency of another, so that rather than two discordant notes, there is a harmony.

Peace involves self-sacrifice. Peace requires the sacrifice of aggression, domination and control, anger and greed and ignorance: the sacrifice of those forces within one to the greater good, the greater harmony, to the force of love and awareness.

Peace is the ultimate nature of Oneness. Meditation, prayer, and contemplation bring the experience of the universal peace, the underlying order, the essential harmony. People know that peace exists and desire to bring it to their lives in the world.

However, in a world of duality peace is not something that is going to just happen. Peace on earth or in one’s heart demands concentrated effort, an awareness of the greater good, an understanding of the interconnectedness of everything and the willingness to give up one’s own personal perspective when necessary to the greater good.

May there be peace on earth and in your heart.

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

*Awareness sessions are channeled readings that provided much of the original information of the SourcePoint principles and practices. Occasionally I will be sharing direct transcripts of Awareness sessions on this blog. In an Awareness Session I am in touch with and speaking for a greater Awareness, a consciousness not separate from my own, but able to see more deeply, clearly and without judgment or opinion, than I am able to in my ordinary consciousness. The field that is accessed is the field from which SourcePoint arose. Before every session I ask to be a clear channel for the light, energy and information that brings positive transformation. Every session has always begun and finished with the simple prayer: May All Beings Be Happy, Peaceful and Free of Suffering. For more information on Awareness Sessions, please see my original website www.youareyourpath.com, an archive of my work from 2000-2007.

INTUIÇÃO

By | Published:

ladakh heart 2013photo by Josh Schrei

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.
