Questions for Empowerment
© 9/'99 Chris Pringer
There is the tendency for many students of spirituality to intellectualize the whole creative process, and that may be a necessary precursor for certain types of minds. On the one hand, a child enjoys the material world with an uncluttered mind. On the other, a question may arise: how does one get from point A, with all its conscious and unconscious judgments, to point B, a state of freedom and enjoyment, and still be a responsibly contributing member of society? Hence, the below steps are integrated guidelines for bringing about the realization of such ideals - through deepened awareness of self and one's relationship with one's Higher Power. This realization will maintain the capacity to not only produce, but enjoy "wealth" to one's maximum capacity. Appreciation of both the material world and of the transcendence of that world necessarily go hand in hand, although paradoxical as this may sound to those un-initiated in eastern philosophy.

|WHAT MAKES THESE STEPS DIFFERENT
FROM MOST "PROSPERITY PRINCIPLES"
On the one hand, I draw a definite connection between true well-being and abundance. How can one enjoy what one has if one hasn't the presence of mind and heart to appreciate it for what it truly is? Materiality has no basis without the intangible qualities of Spirit that brought it into existence and gave it purpose -- true appreciation of one is true appreciation of the other. I do not believe, however, that the state of one's material advantage is any indicator of spiritual well-being. I believe the controversy over this point is interesting. Even so, both sides of this argument, whether from a Christian, Buddhist, Gestalt, or New Thought perspective, have useful concepts and tools. I've done my best to put them together, to integrate the principles of each usefully below.]
These steps are not intended as all-inclusive as regards manifesting abundance. There are many wonderful publications specifically intended for this, a few of which I will note at appropriate places in the text. While this writing is about manifesting abundance, it's approach is primarily based on the natural laws of magnetism (the capacity to attract what you want) and on achieving psycho-spiritual synthesis.
And compared to the average "prosperity principles course", this process takes one up the mountain like a mountain goat -- slowly, steadily, and with sure-footing. The higher ethics related to personal magnetism need to be considered in depth. Interference with other people or manipulation of others' energies or property without their expressed permission, or any other breaking of "cosmic law" has its karmic consequences. While serving self can become self-centered, serving others can become co-dependent. But serving (read "expediting") divine order within one's Being serves oneself and others simultaneously and lovingly. Hence, efficiency is one product of alignment with divine order. Hence, my recommendation is for one to integrate these steps or considerations with those principles more commonly espoused via the New Thought churches (mainly Unity, Church of Religious Science, and Science of Mind; writings of James Filmore, Ernest Holmes, Emmet Fox, Catherine Ponder, Dorothy Briggs, Louise L. Hay, Terry Cole Whitiker, et all)
As one comes into alignment, achieving more and more success in "seeking the kingdom of Heaven," one becomes rich in the blessings of self-realization. To the degree that this alignment is served by the manifestation of abundance -- however that is defined by the aspirant -- then abundance will surely manifest. One of the principles says that you always get what you need, however you may have to change your beliefs in order for your desires to become aligned with your needs.
First, I invite you to do just a brief overview of "The Achievement of Goals, Attainment and the Role of Inner-Work" (sometimes referred to as "The Goal Chart", the link to which is in the Related Refs Section. You might have it open in another tab of your browser for quick reference.) And then come back here, at least until you get to *Step Four*. Note there the indicated flows of intent (arrows), especially as concerns those into and out of the sections at the (bottom) level of Foundation Processes. This chart and the accompanying notes is designed to enable one to quickly and easily return the focus to the broad scope of things -- especially when the details appear overwhelming -- to see where one is and make sure that each aspect has been given proper consideration. Notice also that in the center of the chart is the aspect, "Awareness of Needs & Desires". Also notice what "feeds" this aspect and what this aspect in turn feeds. It's placement on the chart is purely functional -- for multi-dimensional integration. And that can be read as making a statement in itself relative to the flow of abundance.
Abundance naturally flows as only one aspect of Divine Life Energy. it flows everywhere it is allowed to flow. The whole idea is to re-open closed routes as one opens self to Divine Life Energy -- just as in healing -- one "only" needs to get mind/self out of way. From a gestalt perspective one does this (to really put it in a nutshell) by recognizing the where blocks are, finding what temporary purpose has been served by the blocks, finding a healthy way to meet that purpose, then removing the blocks.
Prosperity or abundance is a relative value, just as is any amount of anything that makes one happy, sad, excited, etc. If you have a concern about meeting someone else's idea of abundance or peace, then you will experience "not enoughness" and therefore unhappiness, no matter what amount is attained. Abundance, peace and happiness are states of mind that are achieved thorough balance within one's own Being. "I give myself permission to know the difference between my true needs and my addictive desires, to have the former joyfully met and the latter painlessly let go of." The following steps address the various levels of The Material Self in the process of achievement of that balance or alignment. Some knowledge of basic metaphysical laws is assumed here. In any case, you may find interesting and educational the section "Cosmic Laws" in the appendix.
To TOP of PAGE
The FIRST of seven "steps," FEEL WHAT YOU FEEL, is one that is most important and yet most difficult for those of us who tend to be mental masters OVER our emotions and bodies. Doing this means being willing to admit ignorance without judging it, giving up control over what "should" happen as regards what you feel, and be willing to be surprised and even confused about what you feel or think you feel. This also has to do with discerning between your feelings and someone else's that you may be tying ("cording") into for various "co-dependent" reasons. Eventually you will learn to feel the feeling when the moment arises, instead of discovering long after the incident, how you really felt about it. Another way of saying this, is to be in touch with your Inner Child. Besides the many facilitators who can assist you in this process, there are some printed resources for helping you learn to do this -- not just in theory, but in workbook practice -- the books: Self-Parenting: A Guide to Your Inner Conversations and The Self-Parenting Program: Core Guidelines for the Self-Parenting Practitioner by John K. Pollard III, Homecoming by John Bradshaw, and Leaving the Enchanted Forest by S. Covington and L. Beckett. All are very effective and practical for the lay person. A source of useful theory and exercises on a not-so=quoted methodology is Freedom from Anger by Roger Daldrop and Dodie Gust.
SECOND, as you become more sensitive to what you are feeling as you feel it, you will also be able to more clearly DETERMINE WHAT YOU WANT -- in general and specifically. You may find this to be not even close to anything you have allowed yourself to have in the past -- that's great. First things first, "Realistic Goal Setting" (incl. "the Goal Chart") comes a bit later in Step Four. Now is when we exercise the imagination, giving the Inner Child permission to dream with as much free reign as you can give yourself. Here is where so many "New Age" books on the topic excel, so I won't try to list them.
THIRD, another potentially challenging step is REALIZING YOUR WORTHINESS and thereby opening the receiving part of your heart (so to speak) to actually have what you want. We're not saying "become worthy enough to have what you want". This has nothing to do with reward and punishment or even "earning" except to the degree that one consciously or unconsciously believes that to be the case. Therefore we're not saying that if you don't have what you want that you've got something to be ashamed of. The trick is realizing how worthy you already are based simply on the reality of God's unconditional love. I highly recommend the booklet, "The Mental Equivalent" by Emmet Fox.
We have all heard, "Seek ye first the kingdom of Heaven, and all things will be added unto you." While I consider that as good a Divine Law as any, like many such biblical decrees and counseling's, this one has been undermined somewhat with its misuse by overly judgmental clergy. They would have us be humble (read here as self-demeaning) to the point of sacrificing a healthy self image and limiting its enthusiasm of expression. Whether we understand this or not we all generally allow ourselves to have as much as we want, provided that we can still believe and FEEL that:
(a) we we are worthy of it;
(b) we will not abuse or "lord it over" others;
© we can have it without taking from or hurting others or ourselves; and
(d) we know and feel (consciously and unconsciously) that it would be in compliance with personally held values and related requirements -- subconscious contradictory belief patterns not withstanding.
In short: in order to manifest what you have yet to manifest -- in spite of apparently intense desires for some time -- you may have to do some personal homework on your belief patterns (as per the information and references in the essay, "Alignment of Beliefs, Desires and Needs"). Karma, divine timing and soul-level agreements (e.g. regarding certain character building experience) can also bear on how, when, and just what we actually do manifest. Any request having to do with other people will involve any number of potential variables and complexities -- and may risk some karmic burdening, even if done with permission of those concerned.
| 'The Law of Karma', just in case you didn't know, is all about the learning process, which process, according to many, is the reason for living in a physical body, taking up time and space, having experience, relationship with anyone or anything. As such, the concepts of *fairness*, revenge or retribution, debt, (etc), take on a meaning that is apparently foreign to most people on the planet. And yet I certainly like to think it can't be wrong to expect such things as basic respect from others. Indeed, I believe it is humanity's Karma to learn how to give it to everyone.
FOURTH, along with the above steps comes the self-clarifying practice of ESTABLISHING REALISTIC PRIORITIES and GOALS. Here is where you set your priorities and timetables for realizing the goals. You need already to be somewhat self-assured that you have the capacity and ability or inner Divine resources to achieve the goal of this phase. Confidence building is one of the steps along the way, so you don't want to create excuses to drop the project with making situations that insure failure, by out-distancing any limitations you are currently "invested in". For example, you would not likely set flying (without an aircraft) as your next goal until you have some experience in manifesting your light-body and have quite completely transmuted all belief patterns and feeling attachments concerning the need for the traditional characteristics of our bodily vehicles. Here is where you might want to do a little more thorough study of "the Goal Chart" noted above, and how your own processes might figure into those dynamics.
For those who are on a mood roller coaster, and alternating from lows to highs without much focus in between, staying clear about priorities can be tricky. In this case it can take longer to establish a stable viewing platform, so to speak. But the self-parenting work (as mentioned above) will go a long way towards moderating the swings. In any case, realistic goal setting has a lot to do with self-image and a balanced knowledge of one's motivations and intentions, especially the ones we may not be so proud of. A Gestalt-based hypnotherapy is especially suited to dealing with these "Conflicting Agenda" dynamics, and the particular method applicable for our purposes in this step may be referred to as "parts therapy," or "conference room technique," or sub-personality work," etc. For example we have all experienced times when we were intent on a specific course of action only to discover that we unwittingly sabotaged that course. And we had no one to blame (if we are into blaming) but ourselves and an apparently mixed set of agendas or priorities, previously unseen or avoided.
Having gained awareness of the divergent needs within ourselves, we can much more easily and accurately do the work that will align our emotional body, as well as our mental body, with our inner guidance (Higher Self) and, thence, our Divine purpose. I regard the realization of the latter as an ongoing process (not generally an event) consistent with our spiritual growth. The more we are in such alignment, the more effectively our goal/priority selection process is facilitated.
The FIFTH, step is REVIEW/RECYCLE: once we have gotten this far and especially if there has been enlightenment of some degree along the way, we might want to cycle back through the beginning. Here, we get to see how well we estimated our sensitivity, desire, and determination, our trust and faith, our allowingness, worthiness, or capacity to Be, Do, and Have -- before going on to "close the deal" in the next step. This can be done briefly unless something new pops up that requires more time. And if more work is need, that's fine; it's part of the process. This is done as many times as it takes until we are sure that we know what we want. Let me sound a warning here, this is not necessarily a test of speed, but perhaps an opportunity to benefit from thoroughness. In case what you've chosen isn't what you really want (but you don't know it yet), you may find out the hard way.
It wouldn't be a matter of having done it wrong, but one of learning to establish more CLARITY. Note the "review and Recycle Feedback Loop" in "the Goal Chart" Notes. Clarity is not too shabby as even a primary goal in life. And as they say, there's no substitute for practice.
SIXTH, FORMALLY ESTABLISHING INTENT AND FOCUS OF ENERGY, is the easiest of all -- and the most fun for many -- after the above work has been done. This is where you do the ritual that invites -- if you like -- the assistance of various Divine qualities of any deity or Masters, etc. It is the official pronouncement in decree or affirmation form to self and All That Is and it affirms that your objectives are in alignment with all of your Being. It says enthusiastically what you want, and says firmly and confidently that you are worthy of having or experiencing it. It acknowledges your choice to have and experience certain specified things, qualities, realities, etc. It affirms that you are ever so grateful that it Is a reality (in the becoming). It can include any reminders about newly chosen beliefs and values about yourself and your capacities or qualities. Some sentences can serve to reinforce your faith by reminding you of new realizations (from step three) that freed you of previous debts. Then you finalize the ritual with a closing such as "I accept this as Done," "Amen," "So be it," or some closing of personally invested Faith. This serves as your stamp of authority, whether you consider your authority as personal, God-inspired, or even channeled.
In general, the statements say whatever you need to say in a style that feels and works best for you and fills any gaps in your belief system that might need to be filled. All this is done in an effective, personalized form -- written down. Then it is (1) daily repeated verbally (out loud) to yourself while (2) generating the feeling of gratitude for the accomplishment of your goal, and while (3) visualizing yourself in the experience and/or in the having and the knowing that God/ess is with you in your achievement of abundance and/or healing. It may take some practice to get all three happening simultaneously. This ritual establishes your integrated intent and direction of focused energy. A sample Invocation is given below.
In the appendix is a reference listing of various decrees/affirmations found throughout this book.
SEVENTH, "ACTING THE PART", has to do with the Power of the Spoken Word and with living your affirmations. This means investing feeling and doing into one's intentions, and feeling and verbalizing Gratitude as if the desired is already manifested. We invest time and energy into the various "Key Activities (per the "Goal Chart") including "tithing", "making room", visualization, thought and verbalization, affirmation, prayer, and decree. The basics on through to the fine adjustments of this practice (and more) can be found in such as Catherine Ponder's *Secret of Unlimited Prosperity*, and Phil Lout's *Money is My Friend*. Indeed, the goal is manifesting immediately on the mental and astral planes.
The manifestation of the goal becomes more likely as we develop our personal magnetism through applied self knowledge and personal power, until the goal gradually becomes physically tangible. This happens as we give ourselves permission to be All that we are and do other practices as emphasized and referred to above.

CLARITY & RESOURCE FACILITATION
An Invocation Format (for Meditation, Prayer, &/or Decree) for Reminding & Organizing, in the Facilitation of Dis-Identification, Acknowledgement, Manifestation and Utilization of Resources, and Healing &/or Protection of All Related Entities. Included at the end is a section for "Invocative Question" (Invoc-Q) style application.
* "Dis-Identification": pertains to the Buddhist pre-meditation technique of mentally discriminating between a) the self as OBSERVER -- of self , and of one's mind,
and b) all that is observed/perceived by one's mind, brain, senses, etc.
INVOCATION of Dis-Identification, Acknowledgement,
Manifestation and Utilization
From the Center of All I Am* (That I Am/All That Is) I decree through the Highest Loving Will the alignment and integration of my energies in this my (multidimensional) Being. I am the peace and clarity and awareness that allows me to acknowledge that I have a body, but therefore I am not the body, that I have emotions, but therefore I am not the emotions, that I have an intellect with thoughts and beliefs, but therefore I am not the intellect nor its thoughts or beliefs, that I have roles and aspects of personality, but therefore I am not those roles or aspects, that I HAVE all manner of concepts and other extensions of my body-mind that I have created, attracted, and/or projected, that are only EXTENSIONS of That I Am.
I here, now, and continuously as necessary CLARIFY their applicability for what, how much, and how I extend any/additional energy into such extensions, consciously and/or unconsciously. Likewise, I CLARIFY distinctions among them as necessary and most appropriately for my highest Good. And I Call for, acknowledge, and Accept the *Balancing of the Energy Distribution* among these elements -- especially including that of LOVE. I acknowledge all the above, to the degree these extensions actually exist (!) in accordance with the Divine Blueprint for my Life Form and with the Highest Will of the most Loving & Compassionate I Am That I Am. So Be It!
I am acknowledging in this clarity therefore that my body-mind (physical, emotional, and mental) Complex is but an extension of That I Am, and that 'I Am' the Center of Consciousness and from this centered point of awareness I acknowledge my co-creatorship with All That Is. And through this acknowledgement I now choose to disengage the power of false or otherwise inappropriate beliefs, patterns, and associations -- extensions -- that my body-mind complex may mentally and/or emotionally entertain, to create into Life/Manifestation. So Be It.
I observe from this center of awareness the emotional aspects ( whether pains or elations) that have been perceived/ created/ attracted/ projected by my body-mind complex. From this point of awareness I deal lovingly and justly with these dynamics as a channel of the Highest Loving Will That I Am, in the role of my own nurturing inner mother-father, open to divine assistance. This is done without judgment, denial or projection of the various "negative" aspects that I have created in and for the learning process of my Being.
I, therefore, acknowledge and gratefully accept all the Good That I Am, here and now made manifest in my Life. I am allowing my environment to reflect -- as I now choose to be a channel of -- the Divine qualities of Pure Awareness, Vision, Will/Power, Love-Wisdom, Knowledge, Creative Joy, and Faith as I align with God's Will for my Divine Plan fulfilled. I am so thankful That I Am so worthy That I Am so blessed to be a channel of such abundance into my Life and into the Lives of others as they so allow. I hereby decree, allow, and gratefully accept this done here and now in accordance with the highest loving will of All That I Am through me. So Be It.
How Am I most efficiently and usefully, thoughtfully and heartfully, utilizing this exercise ?
I acknowledge my Total Being (Body-Mind-Spirit-Higher Power) capacity to effectively, efficiently,
and safely search for, find, & develop any & all answers & solutions that these questions ask for or IMPLY -- as I make each statement one line at a time as a thought, feeling, and/or image,
and letting the thought, feeling, or image go, with faith that the answers come.
I acknowledge that the resources, answers, &/or solutions to these questions are manifesting --
perhaps via communications that are sensed within (via thoughts, feelings, imagery, etc.),
&/or via external experience(s) with things, situations, people, etc.
I ACCEPT THIS DONE
-- RESOURCES ARE FACILITATED! --
according The highest needs of all concerned, and in accordance with Divine Order, Divine Love, & Divine Timing.
Today and days to come I thank my Higher Power/ Higher Self for showing me
what such enjoyable and appropriate resources, answers, and solutions feel and look like!
Glossary for Clarity Invocation:
* "Dis-Identification": pertains to (as parts of this are borrowed from) the Buddhist pre-meditation technique of mentally discriminating between a) the OBSERVER -- of self, and of one's mind (eventually the Self/I AM), and b) all that is observed/perceived. This is done with each aspect of mind (as illustrated in/via the meditation) until each/all of them are perceived as more or less detached for the time being , for the sake of, and at least as relative to, the goal of spiritual clarity with regard to the "time & place" and purpose of them, relative to the process of self-realization. [Akin to what has been referred to as "scope-in--scope-out" or perceiving from the micro-view to the macro-view, or from one perspective or detail to a broader perspectives, and/or other perspectives relative to that first detailed perspective; cause and effect relationships and even the dissolving of same in the same moment, since this is not really about analysis, but about *eventually* perceiving what IS. Ref: Books, "A Gradual Awakening" by Stephen Levine (basics in meditation), and "No Boundary" by Ken Wilber (more advanced concepts in cosmology)]
* "I Am...": (as capitalized) is in itself an invocation of one's Divinity or Divine qualities, an acknowledgement of one's oneness with I Am That I Am/All That Is/All That I Am.
* "appropriate": here means in accordance with most practical application of Divine Order, Divine Love, & Divine Timing.
* "safely": here means free of inappropriate judgment, intimidation, or pain of any kind.)

AFFIRMATIONS FOR LOW BACK RELATIONSHIPS
Listed below are some "Positive Response Questions" (PRQ affirmations) for Low Back related challenges. Included here will be notations for specific/general anatomical correlations, included in brackets '[ ]'.
NOTE 1: While the below PRQ's are generally related to the lower back and the three lower energy centers (eg: in solar plexus, sacral, and base areas), I should add that the higher energy centers (eg: in crown, "3rd Eye," throat, and heart areas) contribute to the activities noted below also, but they generally do so more on mental levels and less on emotional levels. In writing about these correlations, it is not easy to make fine distinctions, let alone in words, certainly not in generalizations to be read by "the average reader" - without readily available and personally applicable clarification. Which I can provide in verbal communication. Meanwhile, if you are interested in pursuing such considerations through reading, some assistance in this regard MAY be found in "The Lower Chakras & Synthesis of Body & Soul" and "PSYCHO-EMOTIONAL ORGANIZATION and THE BODY-MIND" (http://www.chalicebridge.com/LwrChkrasAnd.html).
NOTE 2: You are welcome to contact me (information below) to ask about Affirmations and/or "Positive Response Questions" (PRQ affirmations) for these or other mind-body challenges.]]
Short Form Prq Preamble to PRQ's:
I acknowledge my Total Being capacity (Body-Mind-Spirit-Higher Power)
to effectively, efficiently, and safely search for, find, & develop as needed
any & all answers & solutions that these questions ask for or imply !:
How am I enjoying the daily increase in realization that all my experiences support me in achieving my highest potentials in the most optimal manner and timing according to my Divine Plan fulfilled? [->LtLwBk]
How am I best insuring that I maintain my being's spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical integrity when/as I extend support to others, maintaining respect and honor for/in myself as I extend respect, honor, and/or service to others? [->RtLwBk]
How am I finding The Universe working efficiently for me today? How am I to catalyze the Universe to work efficiently and productively for me today? What good things am I developing for tomorrow and the times to come insuring continued support systems as needed? [->LtLwBk]
How do I enjoy nurturing and supporting my inner child as s/he is healed of any/all ineffective behavior, pain, loss, invalidation, anger, and/or limitations on my being All I can Be? [->LtLwBk]
How am I making it safe and enjoyable to be a winner [->RtLwBk], to do this in my own individual way according to my own values, and to enjoy immense benefits from realizing more and more of my highest potential every day?
How am I making it safe and enjoyable to have all I need to enjoy my life and do what I need to do? [->LtLwBk]
How would it be to accept and feel that THE CELLS DO KNOW
what to do and that they do what they know once any beliefs to the contrary are released ? (ie: such as beliefs supporting feelings that one is responsible and yet helpless, insufficient, or incapable. [->LtLwBk via Heart-Neck]
How would it be to engage the NATURAL, every-moment
process of intra-cellular transmutation for this specific purpose ?
[->LtLwBk via Heart-Neck] (Cellular transmutation: cells utilizing existing resources -- including the actual capacity of cells to change of one element into another -- to make what they need in order to do the job they are designed to do. Yes, is a scientific fact, however controversial in some circles.)
How am I enjoying my willing, creating, and allowing all I affirm to manifest as I AM through me in accordance with Divine Will, in divine timing, and in the most overall efficient manner? [->LtLwBk via Heart-Neck]
How am I making it safe and enjoyable to realize and appropriately utilize my capabilities and capacities [->Lt&RtQuadraceps], in order to realize and appreciate my position relative to my directions [->LtLeg] and to effectively pursue the goals that I set [->RtLeg] achieve the success that would meet my highest needs, to appropriately apply motivation and drive [->Hamstrings] in towards their fulfillment? [correlations related to basic groundedness in practical realization and implementation of resources in/with tangible activities and concrete matters.]
MULTIPLY DIRECTED PRQ'S
WITH SECONDARY and/or OVERALL/END EFFECT ON SUPPORT ISSUES:
How am I effectively responding to potential emotion-stirring current or past situations, [->RtMixedThorasic] making consciously sure that I clarify current emotion from past or stored emotion and clarify true need to allow or stimulate appropriate feeling for true purpose attainment ? [LtMixedThorasic] e.g. When I journalize potentially painful events, how am I writing about them, and how am I responding to my writing, and still keeping all concerned in a content that is open to the most positive and creative development? [->LtLwBk] How am I most appropriately and safely doing this and facilitating any necessary grieving and/or responding to specific individuals and/or the Universe in a constructive, responsible, and timely manner ? How am I doing this and performing any constructive, therapeutic "reframing" of these events as memories in an effective way? ...(i.e. with compassion, unconditional love and courageous self-honesty regarding aspects of self). How do I best perform the above such that I maintain and/or increase my positive oriented motivation in accordance with Divine Order, Divine Love, & Divine Timing? [->Lt&RtMixedThorasic&LwBk] How does this feel?
[Granted, "Unconditional love" falls into the same basket as "Perfection" - something you shoot for, knowing it's highly likely that you'll fall somewhere short of that - how short is a thing relative to each their own idea of perfection Related essays: "More On 'Ideals'" & "Idealism & the Concept of Perfection" at the page, "Compassion, Healing, and The Practitioner -- and Detouring 'Burn-out'"]
How can I best, most productively, use my intensely creative and solution-oriented mind: to help others? [->RtLwBk]... To put my ideas into Action? [->RtNeck]... To communicate effectively to (and motivate as necessary) those who would best facilitate (or best help me facilitate them) the progress of above-related idea/projects? [->RtNeck]...to maintain the faith and positivism necessary to do the above until completion of such projects? [->LtLwBk]... How does this feel?
How do I ensure that I enjoy the most effective and productive Timing for when I get answers to my Questions -- especially as regards those I may benefit most by writing down? How does this feel? ANSWERS ARE FACILITATED!

|Note on the 'Abundance Set' of web pages at this site:
If some folks were to see how I live and hear of my having written an essay on abundance, they would be sure that I was either a comedian, a hypocrite, or a blathering idiot. My response to that would be, "well, that's understandable , given the usual definitions..." for abundance or success - primarily based on the degree to which one "understands" karma, belief patterns, and life decisions about what might be called ones priorities. [And no, that does not mean that everyone with an equivalent understanding needs to live as I do. I know, "phew!" (HA!)]
In any case, I am happy to say that I am rich in many ways - ways that are not associated with how the image of 'success' has been promoted in the media. And essentially that: further understanding of the definitions, values, and concepts regarding such terms as 'magnetism,' 'achievement,' 'attainment,' and 'true abundance' would be a valuable thing in this 'all about winning' era, and I hope to provide at least some clarification in the essays, "Attainment And Achievement -- The Alignment Of Beliefs, Desires, And Needs", "Whole Being Integration In Manifesting Abundance..." (this page), and "Achievement of Goals, Attainment, And the Role of Inner Work: A Flow Chart of the Human Psyche in Growth Facilitation and ...", referred to as "The Goal Chart", and which includes "Heart's Desire, Ideals, & Accomplishment" (Aug'11).
The term 'karma' may also deserve some attention, and that is covered more extensively in the essay, Evolution Trends..." in the section "On Learning, Fairness, Truth, and Peace", and in essay, "Victims, Compassion, & Responsibility -- Notes on The Emotional-Body, Denial of Pain, & 'Easy Answers' (Not!)", as well as in essay, "WHY PAIN? Notes on Pain, Awareness & Denial," Pertains to Physical and other levels - Aspects in Developing a Practical Approach with Compassion. You'll find many other references to essays at this site here, and here's where I toss in my 2nd disclaimer below (and some humor).

| "INTEGRATION" |
"Integration" in the wholistic or therapeutic sense, implies that the information or skills (whether of the past, the good, the bad, remembered or forgotten) are re-organized and then learned from, in such a healthfully complete or "Integral" way (*Love-Wisdom* in application), that it is understood and used for the highest good. The process involves "Synergy" of many systems, and the word "Transformative" is often used to describe what often happens with the most destructive material - that which has been repressed or denied. (Pertains to my more in-depth work, if/as requested.)
"Integration" by Krysta Gibson,
about Common myths vs realities about psycho-spiritual integration; effective guidance about feelings and memories, 'living in the now', 'releasing' events and people, 'forgiving and forgetting' the past - for living the spiritual life fully and meaningfully. Originally published by Krista Gibson in "The New Times" of Seattle. Through the late 80's & most of the 90's, I always read Krysta's essays if I didn't have time to read anything else, and kept copies of various or her articles handy for my clients to take home with them. Still current...

"ART & SCIENCE of Body, Mind, & Spirit Integration"
(Body-Mind-Chalice Integration Art Index Page)
Presenting early to more recent artwork on the "Chalice" or Grail theme (by yours truly), both hand-made & artistically rendered computer-generated works, & a little bio on how it began & developed. This art is born out of the 3D geometric vision/ visual "seen" in 1985, which experience was complete with correlations to deep (pre-Christian) symbology - which initiated the research into the correlations to the legendary meanings of the Holy Grail (and sources, and how and why that was later edited by "the Church"), as well as into various body-mind-spirit correlations, & healing alchemy & energy dynamics. All this related both the body & the grail elements to the mind's interface, in a way that makes sense of many otherwise-would-be paradoxes & mysteries, bridging arts & sciences, with implications related to whole health, including one's relationship with his/her cells. And when incorporating "sacred geometry" into the the rendered symbols (per pi-ratio) -also relevant to the DNA of all Life (proportion as essential to function), most interesting artforms seem to naturally appear.
| Essentially (Per mystical symbolism which precedes anything any religion has, or may yet, to do with it), the chalice is about the human embodiment of Spirit (or Who or whatever It is that created & connects all Life) into the three "lower bodies" (mental, emotional, & physical) which compose the "Body-Mind". Which is also a "vehicle" for the balancing & integrating of Humanity - individually & communally. Chalice "Productions" may thus refer to each person AS a chalice in development. There are essays on various geometry, proportion, function, symbolism, history, & possible implications, including " 'The Lords of Culture' & Listening - A story about Language, Relationship, & the Body-Mind Split - An Anthropology of Intelligence & Paradigms in Context" (7'10) accompanied by, "Therapies & Levels of 'The Spectrum of Consciousness' " a seminal chart by Ken Wilber; "Paradigm Shifts" (7'10); The "Pragmatic Balancing" section of this page relates the Holy Grail to the (psycho-social) evolution of Man, to the world's key religions as well as the Gnostics (by nature of that which unites all of them, although is not necessarily about them), & to *The Da Vinche Code*; includes a working summary of & psycho-social objectives & approaches for bringing about that evolution (as addressed at various pages at the site). Hence, my artwork overall is an eclectic/symbolic mix of multiple layers of brights and subtles, thematic components that blend in sacred geometry rounded with a balance of textures and grounding touch.
