    NATURAL ENERGY 1

    SHARING THE MAJESTY OF SOURCE

    Natural Energy 1′s stretch the back of the neck upward, and make a slight movement of the chin up and forward which activates the throat. The muscles under the chin and at the top of the neck fire in a gentle way, they tighten without straining, creating the activation of the throat. Once the throat is active they begin to bring source energy into the world through the throat and eyes. The eyes soften to strengthen and activate the connection to source energy. If making eye contact with another, the receptive and vulnerable gaze creates a heartfelt connection creating a profound sense of well-being, beauty, honoring and the sense that we are all ok.

    THE INFINITE EXPERIENCE OF SOURCE

    People with Natural Energy 1 (NE1) initiate their movement from the top of the throat. With soft receptive eyes a person with NE1 1 takes in the person before them and helps them to feel connected to source or spirit energy. Each person engaged in the exchange begins to feel and honor the beauty and vulnerability of the person in front of them.

    Natural Energy 1 enables people to feel their connection to something larger than themselves (source, god, a higher power, nature, energy, whatever word a person uses to describe this). When in connection with NE1 people become more aware of the source energy that flows through people into the world. It allows you to feel the beauty, importance and purity of others. The source level energy is utterly beautiful, as you become aware of this energy, everything becomes very beautiful, the feeling of awe and wonder fills your being for wherever or whoever receives your attention.

    This ability to help others feel and see the beauty of the person in front of them and the world around them helps people to know they are part of something bigger. It creates a starting place, once connected to source or spirit energy humanity is ready to move and change from a place of honoring and equality.

    Body Location

    The Hyoglossus muscle, located just under the chin which connects into the top of the throat.

    Postural Adjustment

    Making the following posture adjustments assist in activating Natural Energy 1: Focus on the top of the throat, stretching the back of the neck upward.Move the jaw up and forward ever so slightly without compressing the back of the neck. This will create a slight tension in the top of the throat. Allow the eyes to soften. Bring your attention to the muscles on the underside of the chin and the top of the throat, these muscles fire as NE1 activates.

    NATURAL ENERGY 2

    THE MAGIC OF ENGAGEMENT

    The face of Natural Energy 2 is neutral and the eyes are bright, clear and available. When engaged, the upper Rectus Abdominus is pushed out and taut so that it vibrates with the connection. The entire body is ready to be with whatever is in front of them and comes even more alive with movement and engaged relationship. Natural Energy 2 is about connection through relationship to the magic in others it is a merging with other, attuning with our whole being to the body of another person – for the joy of connection alone.

    NATURAL ENERGY 2

    Natural Energy 2

    CONNECTION TO OTHERS

    Natural Energy 2’s Activation Nexus is at the Upper Rectus Abdominus also known as the top of the “six-pack”. People with this Natural Energy connect to others so strongly they liken it to an energetic entanglement.  This action creates a readiness in all parts of the body to connect with whatever is present. A person with NE2 has a neutral face and eyes, when waiting for engagement. Once they start a connection with another person the eyes light-up. The upper Upper Rectus Abdominus is forward and active. They are ready to move, to respond, to match whatever is in front of them.

    This ability to engage enables NE2 to choose when and how to move through the world. They meet whoever they encounter exactly where they are and can match or mirror the person in front of them easily creating connection. When active, they make the people around them more aware of each other and can impact the interaction and connection without even speaking. There is no competition in the interaction, this creates a healing connection that enables the NE2 to help others to know who they are and what they are not seeing in themselves. One NE2 described it as "I give them back themselves".

    Body Location

    The movement center for NE2 is located at Upper Rectus Abdominus muscle. It is likely that the Solar Plexus, a nexus of nerves behind the stomach is also involved, but this is not yet fully understood.

    Postural Adjustment

    Making the following posture adjustments assist in activating Natural Energy 2: Focus on the Upper Rectus Abdominus muscles, the top muscles of the "six Pack" in the upper abdomen, making these muscles taught, they will expand outward as the lower abdomen comes in to support the lift and expansion at the upper muscle. Eye contact can be included, it begins in a neutral place and as the connection deepens the eyes will naturally begin to brighten in engagement. Keep attention on that area as the connection deepens.

    RELATIONSHIP TO SELF

    Natural Energy 4's focus on the lower abdomen, bringing the lower abdomen slightly forward, they close their eyes, drop their head a little bit, and bring their focus inside the body and down into the lower abdomen.  They breathe into the lower abdomen, each breath, both in and out taking them deeper inside.  Once connected to their internal timeless self they can expand their energetic bubble outward to include others, the out-breath can be used to send the energy of connection to another person, while the in-breath keeps them connected to themselves.

    RELATIONSHIP TO SELF

    People of Natural Energy 4 know how to go inside, to what they sometimes call the "infinite universe within". They bring their focus to the area of the lower abdomen, flexing the abdominal muscles out and holding them taut which brings their attention inside the body. With each breath in and out they drop down deeper and deeper into this part of the body. With the in-breath they go down, with the out-breath they expand the lower abdomen. nIn this deep connection people of Natural Energy 4 help others come into alignment with themselves, to feel who they are in the moment.  This alignment provides a sense of well-being and clarity of self in the moment.

    Natural Energy 4's will talk about "the bubble" - within the bubble is a place of active acceptance, when they include others or a community within this space whoever is included can feel the deep intimate space created by this timeless and infinite connection to self.  Time slows, a deep sense of ease and connection descends on the persons or community.

    Body Location

    Abdominal muscles in the front of the lower abdomen

    Postural Adjustment

    Bring attention to the abdominal muscles making them taught and pushing them forward, allow the upper body to relax completely, and allow the head to rest relaxing the muscles in the back of the neck. Breathe deeply down into your abdomen allowing your breath to grow audible. As you breathe down allow your attention to drop more deeply inside, expanding the lower abdomen to accommodate the breath rather than expanding the chest. As you breathe out feel your lower abdomen push outward drawing your attention ever deeper inside. This can be done when you are alone, or when you are with another person. It can be done with eyes shut or with eyes open. It is most effective when first practicing to do this alone, perhaps lying down or sitting, with the eyes closed.

    UNDERSTANDING: EXPERIENCE, EMPATHY, INTUITION

    People with Natural Energy 5, NE5 move from the top of the head. Their bodies are loose and relaxed as if suspended from the top of the head. Creating an active connection out from the top of the head enables Natural Energy 5's to create peace and calm around them.

    When they make a connection out from the top of the head, they open their awareness to the spiritual connections of everything. They build dynamic models or maps, using a combination of information they gather from experience, learning, intuition, empathy with people, and this awareness of the spiritual connections. They use these models for guidance, to predict outcomes, and to build possible scenarios. They help us to know what we know and what we don't know, to build on what we know and to create a starting point for forward movement. They are unattached to their understanding, changing and adapting as new information appears, resulting in new scenarios and new guidance. Through their ability to map human knowledge they create understanding for the world around them.

    Body Location

    Parietal bone of the head, muscular activation is created by lifting the Temporalis muscles on the side of the head, elevating the Superior Temporal Line creating the sensation of an opening in the crown of the head.

    Postural Adjustment

    Bring your attention to the crown of the head. Position the crown of the head directly over the shoulders. Extend upward leading with the crown allowing the space to be created between the cervical vertebrae. Relax the whole body as if suspended from your crown. Feel the Temporalis muscles on the side of the head lift upward. They eyes of NE5 are used to observe the world around them, making eye contact can actually distract you from processing what is happening. Close your eyes if your environment is causing a distraction, or keep them open with relaxed open focus, notice your hearing expand to 360 degree awareness.

    Natural Energy 6 Symbol

    Dynamic Manifestation

    People with Natural Energy 6 use the chest to take in the energy around them and decode the content. In this way the wisdom from the active spiritual energy in the present moment can be shared with others. NE6 helps transform the source energy that is contained in everything into information to energize and move the world around us forward. NE6 feels the presence of source energy in the world and translates it into action.

    Another way of describing this is that our collective universal consciousness creates collective will, we will call this Universal Will, Natural Energy 6 can tap into what this Universal Will is wanting to happen. At humanities' deepest level, there is a wealth of powerful, positive, energy that when tapped can be used to create transformation that is desired by, supported by and in harmony with the Universal Will. By activating the NE6 energy center and tapping into this energy stream, one can feel the magic and the path for humanity in the body. To make this available to the world around them NE6's can send this energy in it's purest form back out into the world around them, it feels like love, when NE6 is able to create it's purest emanation.

    Body Location

    Postural Adjustment

    Stand straight, with your head over your shoulders, shoulders over hips, hips over feet. Take a deep breath into your chest allowing the rib cage to expand as much as possible. As you breathe out keep the rib cage expanded. Roll the shoulders down and back lifting more from the sternum. Feel your pectoral and intercostal muscles (the muscles in between the ribs) engage to support the lift and expansion in your chest, further expanding it to a drum like state. Notice your awareness expand. A sense of energetic acuity raising your awareness to the nature of the world around you. It can feel both peaceful and incredibly alive simultaneously.

    CHANGE AND POSSIBILITY

    Natural Energy 7's straighten the back leg, locking it out. The whole body leans forward in a straight line up the back of the body. Focus is brought to the third eye area and a connection is made all the way down to the back heel.  They experience an emptying of the head, an open stillness.  In this place they can travel the quantum field, crystalizing the flow of quantum energy into a possibility, idea, vision which they then present to us.

    NATURAL ENERGY 7

    CHANGE AND POSSIBILITY

    People with Natural Energy 7 (NE7) help us to see what within us or around us needs to change. They are open to the possibility of the, as yet, unknown. They perceive what, currently, is not in this reality. By creating a stillpoint at their energy center they quiet the minds' chatter, creating space to open to new possibility. To do this they live in a world without boundaries open to infinite possibilities, without structure or limit.

    They see the uniqueness of each individual, and see a possibility for each person that is not necessarily obvious to others. NE7's so love the world and are truly committed to showing us the greater vision of what could be. They want to move us forward toward this grander vision and possibility for humanity. They are often willing to risk anything in the process of moving humanity toward that vision.

    Body Location

    The Glabella, the triangular bone that is the flat part of the frontal bone just above the eyebrow line, this area is also known as the third eye. The pineal gland, behind this location in the head is thought to have some relationship, but as yet we are not certain as to the truth or meaning of this.

    Postural Adjustment

    Focus on the Glabella, you can touch it gently with your middle finger of your dominant hand, allow the muscles on the side of the forehead which connect at the temples, called the occipito frontalis, to pull toward the back of your head. Close your eyes, allow your eyes to rotate in to look at the Glabella. Keep your focus on the space just behind the Glabella, allow your mind to empty completely creating stillness. Wait in the stillness until insight, new information, new possibility presents itself.

  • Natural Energy 8 Posture

    NATURAL ENERGY 8

    BODY WISDOM

    Natural Energy 8's tilt the sacrum down from the base of the spine toward the earth, tucking the hips and flattening the lower back. This adjusts the spine to allow the upper body to relax. They connect down to the earth from the sacrum and use the arms like spacers, keeping the upper body relaxed but toned.  The energy travels down from the sacrum, through the legs and feet into the ground and then back up again in a bi-directional flow.  It can feel as if the feet grow roots into the earth.

    NATURAL ENERGY 8

    Natural Energy 8

    BODY WISDOM

    People with Natural Energy 8 initiate their movement from the lower back or sacrum. They connect down into the earth from the sacrum, directing the bottom of the sacrum down toward the earth, drawing energy up from the earth, energizing all the cells of their body. They are highly aware of all aspects of their bodily functions, sensations and physical experiences.

    When their Natural Energy is active they are ready to respond proactively, they know what is needed next to move something forward, what needs to be taken care of, what the next steps are, and how to take a good idea and create what is needed. They understand and respect natural human boundaries (arms length away, until invited closer). They teach respect and body integrity - how to listen to our bodies, and follow what our body guides us to do, how to create safety, attend to the critical details, and to move when the body is ready. As a result of this body readiness they are able to respond quickly in a crisis situation and are often the first ones to move into action when needed.

    Body Location

    Sacrum, the bottom most bone in the spine upon which the remainder of the spine rests. Tilting the sacrum changes the angle of the spine.

    Postural Adjustment

    Either standing or sitting, bring your focus to the sacrum, tilt the sacrum so it points downward toward the ground, clench the gluteous maximus muscles of your buttocks. Feel the energy extend down through your legs to the ground, as if you are pushing into the ground. It might feel like your feet grow roots into the earth. Allow your upper body and jaw relax to relax. The upper body is perched and relaxed on the sacrum. This creates a deeper awareness of your body, it’s connection to the earth and the flow of energy up and down. .

    Natural Energy 9 Symbol

    INTEGRATION AND METABOLIZATION

    People of Natural Energy 9 use the breath to move in harmony and inter-connectedness with all that is. They use the breath to expand their awareness and synchronize their breath, body and the world around them.

    This creates a feeling of fluidity and inclusion - everything is held together in oneness with all else. The fluidity and flow allow movement and action, and NE9s know to use the minimal amount of power in movement to cause change. The alignment with the breath allows the body to integrate experiences and prepare for the next movement.

    NE9s also talk about how they move experiences through the life process to completion, by metabolizing the energy in their body to release it out to be available again. They help to bring completeness and closure to the transformation process so that it can start anew.

    Body Location

    The spine in between the bottom of the shoulder blades supported by the trapezious muscle. T7 connects to the lowest rib which also connects at the bottom of the sternum. This assists with the expansion of the rib cage for breathing. The trapezious muscle relaxes at the top allowing the head to drop and contracts along the spine at t6/t7 supporting the back and opening the front of the chest.

    Postural Adjustment

    Take a series of deep breaths into your whole body as you bring your attention to the spine between the shoulder blades. As you continue to breathe allow your upper chest to open as you rotate your shoulders back, bringing the shoulder blades together, contracting the trapezious muscle along the spine and relaxing the upper shoulders. Keeping your palms open, rotate your palms back, turning them open upward, allow your arms to go back as far as is comfortable in alignment with your breathing, keep the shoulders dropping down and back as the upper chest expands and the shoulder blades relax together down the back.
