Enneagram Limitations 101

Thoughts on the different ENNEAGRAM Types

Fist of all, I would like to apologize for being ‘harsh’ on us. I meant to be ‘caring’ though it is tough-Love, I know!  All that I am sharing on this page is based on my personal experiences and observations. I am sorry if you find some of my observations upsetting or ‘not nice’. My intention is to demonstrate how these different characters limit the greatness of who we truly are. 

Our defence mechanisms are not ‘nice’ at all even though we may perceive some of them charming or eloquent. Limitation means that you are hiding the greatness of WHO YOU TRULY ARE behind layers of deceit, a persona that was created in response to a scary world when you were a child. Who you are is much greater than your false identity.

I am an ENG8, so I would like to ‘challenge’ you to shed off some layers of your fear based limitations by taking an honest look at your thinking patters and behaviours. So you can become the magnificent human being of who you are at your higher octaves!

Feel the Fear …

Many people are living in an invisible fear trance that affects every aspect of their lives. This animation addresses these questions: 1. How did we get so scared? 2. How does fear change our relationships? 3. What does fear do to your body? 4. How can you change your fear to flow now? 5. Free of fear, what’s possible?

REVERENCE TIPS Day1

40 days Nativity Fast, Advent, Hanukkah

What do they have in common?

Opportunities! 🙂

This time of year is full of opportunities to de-garbage and re-focus on Spirit, the Essence within. I am aware that when I make an effort to slow down and centre myself in the Silence, my life blossoms in many unexpected ways.

HOWEVER, it is soooo easy to slip into busy-mode and make ‘life’ and my to-do-list more important than my spiritual being. So …

Today on the 28th November 2021, we started the 40 days until Orthodox Christmas Day on the 6th January.

We celebrate Christmas on the 25th December which is about half way to the Orthodox Christmas Day in January. Also, form today we are observing Hannuka for a week.

I like the idea of Nativity Fast. There are many ways to understated ‘fasting’. I look at it thorough the lens of cleansing. I think , I will use the next 40 days to cleanse my consciousness from ‘garbage’.

Interestingly, this time of year, I am also crazy busy. It seems that I am somehow wishing to be more Spirit-centered but I am also afraid of it. Sowing down and sitting in the silence also means that I need to face what’s bothering me or I am afraid of. Though it is uncomfortable it is also a great opportunity to release all that and re-centre myself in the peace and calm of the world of Spirit.

So, I decided to do a 40-day spiritual cleansing. I have also promised myself to make it manageable so I will actually do it.

Starting today, I will spend at least half an hour every day with nourishing myself Spiritually. I will experiment with different creative and artistic ways and will report on them.

Today I meditated for an hour so to start the process off. 🙂 TICK. Honestly, it was hard. I spent most of it either doozing or swimming in endless thoughts.

Listen to this meditation. Lovely!

It will get better! <3

Openness to Learning

The Openness – to – Discovery Scale

Created by Kathlyn Hendricks, Ph.D. & Gay Hendricks, Ph.D.

Willingness to learn from each moment — as opposed to defending ourselves by stonewalling, explaining, justifying, withdrawing, blaming — is much more important than factors like IQ, family background, race or degrees. The great advantage of openness-to-learning is that you’re in charge of it at all times: it’s always within your control to shift out of defensiveness into genuine curiosity. Another great advantage: it can’t be faked. You can feel instantly whether you’re genuinely wondering — or clinging to a defence. This scale was designed to help you make more graceful shifts out of defensiveness.

High Openness-to-Discovery
+10 Implementing (planning actions, requesting support for follow-up).
+9 Feeling and showing genuine enthusiasm about the possibilities.
+8 Taking full responsibility for the issue and the results that were created.
+7 Thinking out loud, making new associations about an issue.
+6 Requesting information and examples about an issue.
+5 Listening generously (able to paraphrase other person’s statements without interjecting your point of view)
+4 Expressing appreciation for the messenger and the message, regardless of delivery
+3 Openly wondering about the issue.
+2 Expressing genuine curiosity about the issue.
+1 Demonstrating open posture and body language.
…………………………………………………………….
Key transition moves:
Choosing WONDERING over DEFENDING & Committing to LEARN
…………………………………………………………….
Low Openness-to-Discovery
– 1 Showing polite interest outwardly while inwardly clinging to your
point of view or rehearsing your rebuttal
– 2 Explaining how the person has misperceived the situation.
– 3 Interpreting what the person is saying as an attack.
– 4 Justifying why you’re the way you are, or why you acted the way you did.
– 5 Going silent, getting edgy or snappy.
– 6 Finding fault with the way the message is delivered.
– 7 Righteous indignation: demanding evidence in a hostile manner.
– 8 Blaming something or someone else.
– 9 Attacking or threatening the messenger, verbally or otherwise.
– 10 Creating an uproar or leaving abruptly.

What is DELENTA?

So, DELENTA is an online coaching platform that has it all. I highly recommend using the platform and finding fantastic coaches there like the Speakers Insight Girls! <3

Coaching as a creative process

For me, coaching/guiding is a creative process of continuous discovering. It is similar to treasure hunting. At every station, you, the client, discover something new about yourself that will point you to the next clue.

It is an exciting and nerve-racking process at the same time. As a coach/guide, I am there with you at every step of the way supporting you to understand what the clue may want to communicate with you and where the next clue may lie ahead. I am walking this creative and exhilarating journey with you.

Prosperity

“True prosperity is not making money or putting out goods or developing prosperity. It is determining what our souls require in order to cause them to unfold more of God (Divine);”

Myrtle Fillmore, Healing Letters, Unity Books

Considered in the broadest sense, prosperity is ‘spiritual wellbeing’. This involves the whole experience of healing life, satisfying love, abiding peace and harmony, as well as a sufficiency (of every good thing).

Paul Hasselbeck, Spiritual Economics

Therefore, prosperity is a state of consciousness.

WEALTH DYNAMICS

Well, deep down we all want to get rich so we can do the things that are meaningful to us. Very often though we do not realise that we do not need to do something to pay the bills or win the lottery to free up time for the things that we love doing.

According to Roger Hamilton (Wealth Dynamics & GeniusU), we all have an innate and natural way to do things that not only pleases us but when we are in the ‘flow’, it generate wealth for us, too.

In this early video Roger explains what the 9 types are and explains how you can recognise which one is your type. In case you are not sure about your type, on his website you can do a test that reveals your type. CLICK

During the THERAPEUTIC ART ENRICHMENT GROUP PROGRAM we investigate our Wealth Dynamic Profile and create an action plan around it. The Program will support you to take ACTIVE steps toward finding and creating meaningful and fulfilling work activities for yourself

My thoughts on IKIGAI

My country of origin was under communist leaderships for about 50 years. After the ‘bloodless revolution’ in 1989, people became free to chose what to do with their lives. However, the decades of ‘socialistic parenting’ resulted in people having no idea how to make well-founded and mature choices about their lives any more.

‘COMMON SCHEMES’ is the expression I would use to describe how majority of people chose professions and build businesses in the country. There are only two ways to chose a profession here – either to create a fashionable lucrative business or to become an ‘agent’ at the customer service department of one of the many international companies.

What is IKIGAI?

MY THOUGHTS ON IKIGAI

Finding our path to generating wealth is not about knowing how to generate money but finding out who we are and how to follow the right path for out ‘type’.

Wealth Dynamics Profiles show us what direction to take. Finding our IKIGAI helpS us follow that direction with focus and clarity on what our mission.

To get a jumpstart, we look at our IKIGAI clusters and ask ourselves the question: ‘What is no longer relevant?’

With this question we weed out ideas that hinder us: we are often attached to some ideas of what we want to do with our lives, what kind of job we want to do. These attachments are often based on our upbringing or more often than not on the way we see ourselves. These two attachments are deep traps that hinder our finding our our IKIGAI.

An ever deepening self-knowledge is key for realizing your IKIGAI.
