Text 2, Stages of Life in a Human Being, Part 2, Ages 9-10

We have been looking at The Main Central publications that offer great insight into the contents of Text 2.

Issue Number 58, Fall, 2007 continues a series of articles about the stages of life in a human being from page 42 of Text 2, authored by Iole Lebensztajn.

Today we will continue with that series:

Stages of Life in a Human Being (Continued)

LUNG – 9-10 YEARS OLD – Page 42, Text 2

Balance Between Inward and Outward…

“This can be a challenging time for parents because they need to respect their children’s space, avoiding invasion in all senses, including their rooms, which now become a refuge. They now need to enjoy being alone (all one with themselves), in touch with their inner resources. This is a good time to start being a good companion for myself, to talk to myself, to listen to myself. This will help myself be able to later on in life listen to others and make myself heard. However some children can have the tendency to be isolated and alienated, with feelings of shame and inappropriateness of their image or appearance (which starts being a big concern for them). As a defensive attitude, they reject in order to avoid being rejected. This time can be the developmental root  of people from 41 to 48 years old who feel loneliness and lack of contact. (The sign opposite to Aries is Libra – related to Bladder Function Energy: 41-48 years old.) In fact when this happens we are missing being in touch with ourselves, caring for ourselves and listening to ourselves. We miss everyone and everything when we miss ourselves.

All aspects mentioned above are also related to Aries and Lung Function Energy principles which are somehow more available to being developed during this time of life – when I want to be accepted because of what I am and not due to what I should be. By the way, I want is their slogan. They are full of energy and motivation to fulfill, or better said, to demand the fulfillment of their desires. Of course, they are not yet ready to accomplish their wishes, because they depend on parents. But we expect they will be ready when they are 25 to 32 years old (Heart Function Energy – Chest Flow). Still, it is important for them to learn to make a clear distinction between their desires and others’ desires and start to acquire skills to be themselves and not to be what others (parents) want them to be.

The result of this process is conflict: inner conflict and conflict between children and their parents. In general, before this time parents were like heroes. From now on they will start to resist their parents’ way of living. On the other hand, many parents will start being resistant to the way their children will start behaving. Some of them can become very aggressive and assertive, others can be reserved and quiet, and then there will be the ones that will be both – depending on the circumstances. Negotiation, debate, argument (Aries) and conciliation, consensus (Libra) will be a good training for life in this period. There is no relationship without negotiation and dialogue (Libra). They are learning how to be in relationship with the world and people. Again, parents need to respect the growing individuality and find a good balance – not being invasive or absent.

Talking about relationship, during this time, it is very common for them to fall in love for the first time, in general, in a platonic way.

Lung is a double organ, and we can observe that this is a time of double feelings and behaviors: boldness/insecurity, assertiveness/timidity, being out/being in, my desire/others’ desires, freedom/dependence, etc. Conflict can predict growth. This is just the preparation for our lifetime story where many times we are at the door and have the opportunity to choose to stay in or go out, to be held in the uncomfortable known past or to take the risk of walking on unknown paths, to follow our family, our cultural way of living and beliefs or to find out authenticity. Exhale/Inhale.”

Thank you, Iole.

LUNG – 9-10 YEARS OLD – Page 42, Text 2

Balance Between Inward and Outward…

“Lung Function Energy is obviously related to the breathing process and how to inhale (to go inside) and exhale (to go outside) in harmony. From 9-10 years old, children will be invited to realize how and when to live in their inner world, opening the door to live fantasy, to walk to the outer world, to also live reality. This is the time to learn how to be with myself and how to be with others at each moment and circumstance, defining one more step to individualization and, simultaneously, socialization.

Lung Function Energy is a Surface Flow. The child (pre-adolescent) is coming to the surface to look at the world “face to face”. At the same time, the division between the world and myself (the other and myself) is becoming each time clearer. The impulse to separate myself from what is not myself is very strong: i.e., the motivation to show clearly who I am (Aries) is really passionate. Now I want to distinguish myself from my parents. I don’t want to be like them. I want to find my style, what I like, my way to see the world, to demarcate my position, my space…my room. This is just the beginning of a process that will have its apex in terms of vigor between 18-24 years old (Heart Function Energy), and its complete awareness between 57-64 years old (Diaphragm Function Energy). This is the path to achieve authenticity (inner truth), which involves all Chest Flows.

Children in this phase want to do things by themselves without asking for help or listening to others’ opinions. They want to listen to themselves, to be their own reference (self-affirmation). They look for new challenges, conquests and stimuli. This is the way for them to get to know their limitations, possibilities and options. However, facing their inexperience and innocence, they are insecure about their ability to deal with life.”

I’m thinking about soul consciousness…

WHAT IS SOUL CONSCIOUSNESS?

“You are a holistic being with both nondualistic energy and the energy of the physical plane as a part of your being at your disposal.”
— Wayne Dyer

Andrew Schneider helps us understand our human experience of being soul. He says, “Soul consciousness arises when we stand facing in opposite directions at the same time – toward eternity and toward time, toward infinity and toward space, toward unity and toward complexity. We stand in that dualism without being dualistic, for in consciousness we can accommodate the opposites. We do this by identifying with both. This identification results in the experience of being an individual while at the same time being the whole, and finding no contradiction in this experience.”

“Give your difference, welcome my difference, unify all difference in the larger whole — such is the law of growth. The unifying of difference is the eternal process of life — the creative synthesis, the highest act of creation.”
— M. P. Follett

I’m thinking about security…

SECURITY

“Let us never confuse stability with stagnation.”
— Mary Jean LeTendre

“Many people think that by hoarding money they are gaining safety for themselves. If money is your ONLY hope for independence, you will never have it. The only real security that a person can have in this world is a reserve of knowledge, experience, and ability. Without these qualities, money is practically useless.”
— Henry Ford

“One has to abandon altogether the search for security, and reach out to the risk of living with both arms. One has to court doubt and darkness as the cost of knowing.”
— Morris L. West

“One thing we can do is make the choice to view the world in a healthy way. We can choose to see the world as safe with only moments of danger rather than seeing the world as dangerous with only moments of safety.”
— Deepak Chopra

“The only peace, the only security, is in fulfillment.”
— Henry Miller

Text 2, Stages of Life in a Human Being, Part 2, Ages 6-8

We have been looking at The Main Central publications that offer great insight into the contents of Text 2.

Issue Number 57, Summer, 2007 continues a series of articles about the stages of life in a human being from page 42 of Text 2, authored by Iole Lebensztajn.

Today we will continue with that series:

Stages of Life in a Human Being (Continued)

LIVER – 6-8 YEARS OLD – Page 42, Text 2

Faith and the Power of Realization…

“At page 43 Text 2 we see that Liver receives energy from the Main Central at Sacrum 1, the area of Safety Energy Lock 2 which helps us to deal with dualities and to recognize the different aspects of oneness, instead of being held by the “rights” and “wrongs” of life. It is remarkable to notice that the notion of right and wrong is clearer for children from 6-8 than before. And also this is the time when we start receiving all the correct and incorrect marks on our tests. If children receive a lot of criticism now, they will stop exploring their capacities and potentials. This can be the cause of people 33-40 years old (Small Intestine age) feeling useless and helpless, full of doubts and feelings of inferiority and failure. Instead of judging, help kids to observe the consequences and the effects of their actions, and if the results they got were what they wanted to create. If not, motivate them to find how to change the action to create another result that doesn’t have to be better or worse, right or wrong, just another result. Successive experiences will generate the success of being more confident, sovereign and responsible. If you feel these expressions of Liver Function Energy were not well structured in your life, receive or apply to yourself the Liver Flow. As a Toe Flow, Liver will help us to walk our path with trust, sovereignty and responsibility.

There is a song of a Brazilian musician, Gilberto Gil, that for me it is about Liver Energy. It says, “I will walk with Faith, because Faith does not use to ‘fail’.”  As I have said before, Liver is a Toe Flow that helps us to walk our path. Faith is related to Pisces and for me Faith is like an Activating Principle that brings together (attracts) all the elements, persons and circumstances necessary to fulfill our potentials, dreams and ideals. And finally when we have Faith in the process there is no failure, just another way among infinite ways to create reality. Faith has to be with our perception of our manifested reality and also our awareness of our yet non-manifested reality (intuition). It is the capacity of being like an antenna in tune with our soul, which is in touch with all visible and invisible resources available for us in each moment.

Liver Function Energy says that it is very important to support kids from 5 to 8 years old to trust life and to trust themselves, their competencies and resources, because this time of life is like a seed that will make available the capacity of writing their own life story. Mary says that till 7 years children are dependant on parents’ energy. From then on they are energetically autonomous, i.e., ready to create the foundations of their own path.

If you want your 6-8 year old child (or inner child) to be in touch with the realization power of faith and trust, play with Liver Flow.”

Text 2, Stages of Life in a Human Being, Part 1, Ages 6-8

LIVER – 6-8 YEARS OLD – Page 42, Text 2

Faith and the Power of Realization…

“Liver is a fascinating organ that has about 500 different functions, which include cleaning, filtering, producing and storing various substances that are essential for the body. Liver working brightly represents the Principle of Activity (3rd Depth). Children from 6 to 8 years old also want to achieve their purpose of being the apprentice of so many activities related to the human development, like reading and writing, mathematics, etc. What was before dreams and fantasies (Pisces), now they start wishing to make real (realization). Liver’s job is to build, to bring into concrete existence, to realize.

As beginners they are insecure about their abilities, competencies and aptitudes and they start being more aware of their incapacities. That is the time to show them that the only way to learn something is practicing and repeating. Dedication is rewarded by improvement, expertise and efficiency (Virgo qualities, the sign that is opposite Pisces).

That is a good clue for us as adults, too. The only way to learn how to write is writing; to cook, is cooking; to drive is driving; to listen to the pulses is listening to the pulses… Parents and adults, in general, who show their skills and capacities are respected and sometimes venerated. These adults represent authority for children in this age group.

A good activity can be to start being in touch with musical instruments. (Pisces is ruled by Neptune which is related to Music.) In this stage of life children are more able in terms of coordination, following rhythms and melodic patterns. Besides that, Music allows being in touch and expressing their feelings (Liver Flow). Music brings discipline, perseverance and patience (Small Intestine Flow).

A new step of life begins during this phase related to attending elementary school. New routines and schedules, new responsibilities and tasks are demanded. The child will need to learn how to organize his/her time, for instance to do his/her homework. Homework is very important in the learning process because, again, it is practicing, and practicing is how we learn. (That is why it is not beneficial when parents do kids’ homework. It takes from them the opportunity to learn.) Again, we see the principles brought by Virgo, helping children develop themselves during Liver Function Energy (Pisces) time.”

To be continued…

Aside from me: I am reminded that the first manifestation of energy is vibration, i.e. music and movement…
