COMBINED TIME OF 75 MINUTES

ACTIVITY ONE: READ & CONTEMPLATE

15 MINUTES
Read and contemplate the following writing as we prepare to open Sustaining Intelligence.

“Sustaining Intelligence evokes the field of resilience and regeneration, calling us to clear blockages that hold us back, and intuitive insight to bring forward the highest healing to the system.”

REALM SHIFT • by Ariel Spilsbury & Michael Bryner

Qualities: quantum leap, expanded reality, web of possibility, assemblage points, the unknown

Loosen your moorings, journeyer – make room for miracles and expanded realities! In receiving this lens, you are being asked to take a quantum leap, beyond the confines of your known reality. You and this reality are entering a total shift of realms.

Because of humanity’s mass agreement about “how reality is,” you may have constructed your reality based on fixed beliefs in such things as restriction, denial, limitation, and judgment. However, when humanity reaches the critical threshold of change in its belief system, reality shifts to reflect that change. Set aside how your reality appears. See the universe as an inseparable whole—one hologram made up of a vast web of interwoven possibilities. You can affect and draw from that energetic field now. You can create the reality you choose.

A shift of realms is taking place. At this nexus of and space, powerful galactic energies are meeting your expanding perception of what is possible. Anything you have defined in a limited way is being transformed. Perhaps you have seen this expanded version of reality In moments of crisis, sü•ong emotions, drug experiences, deep meditation, severe illness, or a near-death experience. After such moments, all things look different, and the potential of all possibilities emerges. That is because the “assemblage points” of your reality have been shaken loose.

Receiving this lens asks you to consciously loosen your assemblage points and allow them to remain loose. Take a quantum leap into the fluidity of unfixed beliefs and expanded realities. By flexibly choosing to move into the unknown, a complete and marvelous reordering of your world awaits you!

ACTIVITY TWO: REVIEWING & DEEPENING

COMBINED TIME OF 60 MINUTES
REVIEWING SUSTAINING INTELLIGENCE AND READING THE ECOSYSTEM

READ AND CONTEMPLATE

The first step in our journey to activate Sustaining Intelligence within us, is to access a deep connection with the Mother Earth, learning how to read our own inner ecosystem by looking into the balance of sun, water, earth and air in nature’s ecosystem, which can teach us about our own balance of spirit, emotion, body and heart mind.

We can ask the Mother Earth to teach us by contemplating her ecosystems and the way the sun, water, soil and air nurtures life.

CONTEMPLATION  1, 2 & 315 MINUTES EACH

1: Enter into a meditation. Imagine the Mother Earth and her ecosystems. Contemplate the following four questions:

  • “How does the light of the sun nurture Life?”
  • “How does water nurture life?”
  • “How does soil nurture life?”
  • “How does the atmosphere, air, nurture life?”

2: Self-Reflection. Contemplate the following four questions:

  • “How do I nurture my spirit/feed my soul?”
  • “How do I nurture healthy emotions in myself?”
  • “How do I nurture my body temple?”
  • “How do I nurture the clarity of my heart mind?”

3: How do we care for our own system (spirit, emotion, body and heart mind)?:  Contemplate the following questions:

  • “How do I want to maintain my balance?”
  • “What new agreements do I want to make with myself?”

READING THE ECOSPHERE
In Sustaining Intelligence, after a first step of learning from nature, and reading the ecosystem, we will begin the shift toward reading the EcoSphere.

 

SESSION TWO:

COMBINED TIME OF 60 MINUTES

ACTIVITY ONE: DEEPENING REVIEW

THE ECOSPHERE 30 MINUTES

The EcoSphere, is a way to image a living system, with lines of longitude and latitude, symbolizing the meridians of the system. The meridians can be seen as energy pathways, understanding that when these pathways of energies are in flow, we have health. When there is blockage, we experience pain in the system.

There is respect needed when we prepare to read an EcoSphere. It is necessary to first clear any bias or judgment we may hold about the EcoSphere itself, and to step into our I AM, to approach in a sacred way. Each element in nature’s ecosystem has a function and is part of the web of life, therefore deserving of respect. The same is true when we read an EcoSphere.

Review the inner stance of the Evocative Leader before you begin to read the Ecosphere. These ways of being are an important stance or way of perception for the Evocative Leader to hold at any time, but particularly when about to read an EcoSphere.

The Inner Stance of the Evocative Leader

The EcoSphere is a way to see the self, relationship, family, organization or world as a living system and not only to read the system for balance but to actualize the potential of the system. When we Read an EcoSphere, we are reading the spirit of the system, the emotional tone of the system, the body of the system and the (heart) clarity of the system.

The equator, the circle around the EcoSphere is the space we visualize as the center, where we hear the voice of the system.

OPENING THE LAYERS

Now we expand to another layer of diagnosing a system for health and wholeness. There are three layers we will ‘read’. In this instance we will apply this reading to a person as a ‘system’.

You will choose yourself as your first practice.

When we work with these three layers, they become a lens through which we can see in a Sacred Way, as we look for balance and well being.

(The old way of doing this would be called “Reading the Shields.” It is one of the ways a healer would use to diagnose the health of a person.)

THE LAYERS: PRACTICE WITH SELF ECOSPHERE

First, we look for the bright layer to see what is growing, full of light and creative. Second, we look into the pain layer, that which is conflictual, disruptive, or blocked. Finally, we look into the third layer, the dreams, or the yearning.

Take time to read each layer within yourself. Come in respect and see each layer without judgement.

  1. Clear any bias, judgment, or negativity you find in yourself as you perceive the EcoSphere
  2. Step into your I AM, aligning with your higher consciousness
  3. Image yourself holding the EcoSphere in your hands
  4. Emanate your light, filling the EcoSphere

Simply ask the following questions:

  • What is bright, or growing?
  • What is painful or blocked?
  • What is the dream or the yearning?

Write in your journal.

ACTIVITY TWO: PREPARATION FOR READING THE FAMILY ECOSPHERE

SUSTAINING INTELLIGENCE ACTIVATION WHEEL30 MINUTES

SEQUENCE OF STEPS:

The Activation Wheel illustrates the sequence of steps to read an EcoSphere:

Activation Wheel for Sustaining Intelligence

STEP 1:

PREPARATION: HONORING: RESPECT: SACRED:

  1. Clear any bias, judgment or negativity you find in yourself as you perceive the EcoSphere
  2. Step into your I AM, aligning with your higher consciousness
  3. Feel if you have permission to read the EcoSphere
  4. Image yourself holding the EcoSphere in your hands
  5. Emanate your light, filling the EcoSphere

STEP 2:

EAST: Look for the ‘bright layer’ in each direction 
(E: spirit, S: emotion, W: body, N: heartmind)

Diagnostic Questions for Reading an EcoSphere

STEP 3:

SOUTH: Look into the ‘pain layer’ and discern blockages from any direction. (We can see any blockages using the same questions from the diagnostic wheel, as they show us where to look.)

STEP 4:

WEST: Look into the dream or yearning layer of the person or system and ask “What is the highest dream of healing?” (Using one of the areas that is blocked or has reduced flow, begin to dream into the highest image of healing)

STEP 5:

NORTH: Look for what is needed to evoke a shift in the system to actualize the potential.

When we ask the question: What is needed to evoke a shift in the system? We are, as evocative leaders, first looking into what is needed to shift within the self. (This is the first step in beginning to evoke the shift)

SESSION THREE:

90 MINUTES

Arrange to have a deep sharing with your pair or triad after your experience.

(Zoom, WhatsApp)

ACTIVITY ONE: PRACTICE

READING THE FAMILY ECOSPHERE60 MINUTES

We ask you now to take some time in nature, returning if you wish to the sacred space you created for your previous work. Bring what you need to draw or write as you read the Family EcoSphere. Take time for the five steps of preparation. This is especially needed when we find we have issues or challenges we need to face in this EcoSphere. Do not do the reading if you have not set aside any bias or judgment. (NOTE: It is not possible to dream the healing without the preparation)

When you have stepped fully into your I AM and can emanate your light and love fully into this EcoSphere, you will know you are ready to begin.

    Write about your experience and insights in your journal. Before this journey, set up a time to connect with your triad following your experience.

      ACTIVITY TWO: HARVEST

      DEEP SHARING IN PAIRS OR TRIADS 30 MINUTES

      SESSION FOUR:

      COMBINED TIME OF 90 MINUTES

      ACTIVITY ONE: DEEPENING OUR LEARNING

      FOUR CARDS AND A RECORDING90 MINUTES

      Please take some time to contemplate the following information. Listen to the recording below.

      The first card opens a Universal Principle offering a view into the nature of the Universe and a Practice which illustrates how we can live in harmony with the nature of the Universe.

      The second card, called the Mirror Dimension Card, offers a view of how to shift our state of being. In particular, it is a way to step into the fullness of Sustaining Intelligence when we wish to activate this intelligence.

      The third card is the Evocative Leader Card which is opening the field of awareness of how the Evocative Leader can evoke self and the field around us.

      The fourth card opens Sustaining Intelligence and is a summary teaching and anchoring of this wisdom and knowledge.
