Pacing, Decision Making Approach, Instinctive Factors The purpose of the Inner Seeing Level III course is to support you in developing the capacity to see creative differences in people around you. In this class, we will focus on the full range of Pacing, 6 Decision-Making styles, 4 Pretenses, and combinations of 7 Body Types. Included is a Discussion on Goals, Modes, and Attitudes. When we can see what was previously invisible, it empowers us to engage individuals differently. What would it be like if we could accurately identify patterns in people that would best engage them? This discussion focuses on the power of naming patterns so there is a common way of relating to specific differences. When we name Compatibility Factors it helps us to quickly survey a situation and know its options and parameters. We know then the unconscious and even conscious affirmations of each individual and how best to connect with them without compromising ourselves. Come and explore with us how this approach can change your life!
We will cover BodyType Identifications and introduce Goals, Modes and Attitudes. While Body Types are not critical, they provide insight into an individual's Authentic Life Expression. Your life work totally mirrors your BodyType Expression. It usually tells you how and in what way you are going to make the contribution you are going to make. Goals, Modes and Attitudes provide Instinctive frameworks for automated behavior. The more conscious we become about these factors the less we are limited by them. Finally, we spend several nights exploring Pretenses, which begins by recognizing the Pretenses within ourselves. These patterns reflect how we want to be seen, rather than who we authentically are. The goal of this class is to provide an external way to validate and connect to internal patterns. The more we can do this with ourselves, the easier it will be to see it in others.
Completing Higher Alignments Compatibility Factors
Now that we have revealed deeper ways to identify the Creative Expressions, we will now turn our attention to key frameworks that expand the dimensions of expression. Two major factors we will be looking at will be Pacing and Decision Making Approach. With Pacing, we are also going to learn to see the distortions that limit our natural expression (Inertia, Intensity and Resistance). These distortions also have an impact on our ability to relate and/or connect with others. Decision-Making Approach is also a distinction that has many ways we could end up denying ourselves. Our parental Imprinting in these areas is usually very strong, causing us to behave in ways not aligned with our Truth. Instead, our Decision-Making compromises keep us from finding our natural flow and limit the joy we can manifest in our lives.
Pacing has to do with how we break down experiences and process it in terms of speed. We assign Pacing in numbers on a scale of 0-100 with 5o being the midpoint. Each person can be identified as to where they are on this bell-shaped curve by a number of their natural Pacing. This may be different than the Pacing rate at which one often behaves. When we’re out of synch with others in terms of Pacing, it creates a huge energetic drain that prevents us from having balanced relationships. When we are more then 15 points different than another, it creates even more problems. As we become more conscious, we are able to deal more effectively with these energy imbalances and better maintain our autonomy in all circumstances. We will also cover how Pacing imprinting of Inertia, Intensity and Resistance distort our ability to see Pacing clearly.
Decision-Making differences are based on the differences both in how we engage a problem and in how flexible we are in meeting others in these differences. The more conscious we are, the more we can vary based on circumstances to maximize the results. Divergent individuals want to honor the big picture and keep exploring options until the perfect one shows up. Convergent individuals like to break problems into a small step that they sequence through time. To make matters more complex, we have some individuals who are Divergent in some areas and Convergent in others or who tend to take the opposing point of view of others in the interaction; these people are called Switchable. What we want to do is clarify when people have been Closed Down (due to contradictory imprinting) so they can discuss how they want to be. Eventually, we could all be Open-Ended in decision-making and interact with others in a Co-Creative way.
When people don’t know who they are, they do Pretenses. Pretenses allow individuals to think they are contributing to others when they are not. There are four Pretenses: Seduction, Romantic Mythology, Control, and Expectations. Since Pretenses limit our expression of Autonomy and Intimacy and create distortions within ourselves around how we contribute to others, we naturally want to eliminate them. To make matters more interesting, we can identify the level of each Pretense and whether an individual actually has beliefs that polarize them against this Pretense. Usually, this indicates a person is becoming more conscious of the Pretense. Oppositional pairs of Pretenses will also be discussed.
Body Types are easily identified on a physical level by the shape or form each takes. There are 7 Body Types: Sporty Action, Safe and Supportive, Group Anchor, Speedy Communicator, Inner Brilliance, Quiet Authority, and Radiant Healer. We each have 3-4 Body Type components that are unified within us and can be expressed in terms of percentages. Each Body Type reflects different capabilities or ways of expressing ourselves that contribute to our life work. Many people spend their lives fighting against their Body Type, resulting in frustration. This is because each culture has their idealized combination that is not widely distributed in that population.
