Shapes are the words of our Intuitive Language

If pattern is the logic of our intuition and fractals are our language then shapes are perhaps the words that make up that language. Each and every shape you see around you conveys information because each shape is one way for things to be joined. The alignment of how we join with others, or with the world around us, can tell us a lot about what is going on.

Stop and think about this for a moment. You’ll realise you have a sense of what I mean even if you haven’t got the words for it (though I hope this blog will give you some of words to put to your innate understanding). Here are some basic shapes and some of the empathic, rather than mathematical, information they convey. Stop and consider each of these shapes, especially your reaction to them. Fractals are created from basic shapes repeated over and over again. By considering the basic shapes and what they convey you can begin to understand a little more of what each fractal is saying, and so your intuition can take that one step closer towards being conscious intuition.

Pine line pixabayStorm front line pixabayA straight line – joins two things together in a direct way. It is stable, clear and direct but it is also static.

Lampionblume flower triangle pixabayPlank triangle pixabayA triangle is more interesting as it introduces a third element. This third element could be either stabilising or destabilising, depending on the relationship. It opens up a line to new possibilities.

Cherries heart pixabay Leaf heart pixabayYou can think of a heart-shape as a special kind of triangle. Two of the corners are curved as they draw towards each other, rather than pointed, and the third remains as it would in the triangle. What does this suggest to you? That the closeness of the first two points allows the energy of the third to express itself in new ways?

Pyrite crystal pixabaySquares are seen rarely in nature. This in itself is interesting as it is the one shape we humans reproduce over and over again – along with its cousin, the rectangle. Squares are a ‘grown up’ version of the straight line. They hold each corner in a static relationship. Perhaps this is why we like them. They give the sense that we know what’s going on, but squares are so rare in nature that it reminds me of how we’ve recently realised that, for all of our science, we’ve only been studying about five percent of the Universe. We’re not even sure where the other ninety-five percent of the Universe is and what it’s made up from. We may like squares but they’re not that natural. You may think immediately of cliffs but they’re usually so eroded they’re not true squares. The only true square in nature I can think of is the pyrite crystal. Interesting that pyrite is called ‘fool’s gold’ and that gold has been regarded for centuries as both a symbol and a holder of value. Perhaps it’s time for us to realise that static relationships hold, at best, only fleeting value?

Daffodil circle pixabaySun circle pixabayCircles are far more common in nature than squares. They have both a centre as well as a diameter, which allows them to have an outward, radiant expression while maintaining the core of themselves. Circles cover every angle and so come closest of the linear shapes to the connectivity of true consciousness. In sacred geometry the circle is considered to be the most powerful and complete shape.

Snail shell spiral pixabayRose spiral pixabaySpirals are a special kind of circle. It’s more of a curve, and an open curve at that. It’s a curve in which every revolution is larger than the one before. The exact relationship of each curve to the previous one is ruled by the Fibonacci sequence, a kind of mathematical fractal, so naturally this is a shape we enjoy at Fractology. Consider what the spiral suggests. Each revolution is more expansion than the one before yet the centre is always maintained. This shape is a wonderful visual expression of the process of true personal and spiritual growth.

There are more shapes, and definitely more complex shapes that are made up of combinations of these basic shapes. Yet when you begin to consider each shape and what it means, what it supports and what it doesn’t, it will help your intuition become more conscious. Spend a little time each day looking around you and observe what shapes there are in your environment. What does that tell you about where you are?

Sacred geometry grew out of the study of the basic kinds of shapes I’ve been talking about here. The understanding of fractals came from topology, the study of shapes. Fractology is a further development of that as it enables us to understand the pattern-based logic of our intuition. As you observe how you respond to the shapes that make up your day you’re building a foundation for your intuition to grow.

Left brain – right brain: challenges and insights from the road

One of the joys of travelBrain2 pixabayling overseas to teach is getting to experience knowledge that is old and familiar to me in a completely different way. When I see what I know through the eyes of people who look at the world from a diverse perspective it forces me to explain things in a whole new way. This is brilliant as it gives me a new appreciation of old and loved material.

One of the most noticeable differences between the culture I grew up with and the Brazilian culture is one that, fortunately, Fractology is well-equipped to handle. My upbringing was a very left-brained one. Not only because my father is a mathematician but because the culture I come from seeks to understand anything before acting on it. This means that often long explanations and assurances are required before teaching anyone even the first step in the Fractology process of developing their intuition. The challenge at home is the classical one that many spiritual and intuitive teaches have to meet. It is the challenge of enabling students to accept the validity of their intuition deeply enough that they’re open to learning. In Brazil all that changes.

This is a wonderful, deeply empathic culture with deep shades of mysticism. This harks back to the unique history of the place and can be seen in the diverse and integrated influences that created what Brazil is today. What this means for Fractology and the development of intuition is that students here plunge straight into the work. There is an immediate empathic connection to the work which is profoundly right-brained. The challenge here is not to get students to open up to the work but to understand what they’re doing from a logical framework so they can do it consistently and with clarity. In other words, the process of learning here is the reverse of what it is at home.

At home the most effective method of teaching is left-brain to right-brain. Once students have a logical framework they can accept they’re far more open to all the many gifts their intuition has to offer. Here in Brazil where I’m currently teaching that would not be an effective method. What works best here is going from right-brain to left-brain. This back and forth between both sides of the brain is fortunately an inbuilt part of the Fractology system.  It is a necessary part of teaching intuition and self-awareness. It also has implications for other parts of our lives, such as business.

In business it’s most common to go left-brain to right-brain because a reliable and consistent method of operation is needed to get anywhere if you want to be successful. Knowing what you’re doing and how to do it most effectively within a highly specific focus is a great recipe for the operational side of any business. Yet any truly successful business person will tell you this isn’t enough. A great business system is an efficient way of making product, of getting the work out there but to be successful you also need to have what you’re doing be well-received. That is a more right-brained process.

Some businesses figure out the system first and then seek to connect to their clients. They go from a left-brained approach to right-brained communication. If they don’t make that switch they may have a great product but their marketing will lack heart and so their products won’t enjoy the success they deserve. The left-to-right-brain approach works well with companies that require a lot of research and development, such as medical supply companies. However today most companies, especially small companies, would do better to reverse this process.

The right-brain is what enables us to make that immediate connection. It’s what guides any business to the niche that will enable them to create an effective base from which they can grow momentum for outrageous levels of success. Microsoft is an example of a company that takes this approach. Whether you are a Mac or a PC person you can learn something from the way Microsoft does business. They throw together their next product and send it out to market knowing it’s not perfect. In other words, they’re far more focused on making that right-brained empathic connection with people than they are on having a perfect left-brained system. Once the product is out in the market they know their clients will give them feedback. Full left-brained understanding of each new product or system comes after they’ve put the product out to market.

In other words, both approaches work. They’re just different. The question you have to answer for yourself is – which way do I prefer to work?  Left-to-right-brain? Or right-to-left-brain?

The intuitive-edge in business

Are you haunted by the problems in your business or work life? Or do you know with absolute conviction that your business could be huge if you could Money treejust get ahead of the trend? Problem solving and creative innovation are the edge your intuition can give you in your business. From Steve Jobs to Oprah Winfrey, many business leaders speak about the importance of their intuition and how it helped them get ahead in their business. This is an edge you can acquire for yourself. You too can use your intuition to succeed in business.

In life and business there are only two categories of things you have to deal with. Those you already know and those you don’t know yet. Your brain is designed to handle both of these. That’s why you have two sides to your brain.

When dealing with something you already know you’ll probably need to pull up from the dim recesses of your memory or subconscious known facts and figures. These details, this data gives you the information you need to deal successfully with what you’re facing. If you’ve dealt with it well before you’ll pull up that data and do something similar again, hopefully with a similarly successful outcome. Your left-brain is really good at that kind of thing. That’s what its job is. This is the side of your brain that school focuses on. However good your grades were then, that was down to how well your left-brain stores that data. When you know something, you know it. The difficulty is that in business, as in life if you try to use what you already know to handle something you don’t know yet it’s probably not going to work out so well. That’s when the other side of your brain and your intuition comes into it.

Your right-brain doesn’t deal with known facts but with the patterns of life. Pattern-based thinking or using your intuition in business decision making is what the intuitive-edge in business is all about. None of us like having to deal with difficult situations, especially if we dealt with something similar unsuccessfully in the past. When you’re faced with such a situation you know you need to do something different, but what? Even more daunting are those moments in which you have to deal with something entirely new, whether it’s because the trend has changed or you’re taking your business into its next phase. Yet these moments are also where the biggest opportunities lie.

The chances are if you have a problem other people have it as well. Solving problems is a great way to grow your business. When your business intuition is working well you’ll be able to perceive the pattern running through the situation and use that to realign what you’re doing to solve the problem. To understand what I mean consider a tree for a moment. Your left-brain might know all sorts of facts and figures about a tree, like how the chlorophyll or the green-stuff in the leaves can turn sunlight into energy and takes carbon dioxide out of the air in the process. Your right-brain isn’t so interested in any of that stuff. It just looks at the whole magnificent tree and goes past that to recognise the pattern that created it. Then it does more.

The pattern shows you where the tree has a problem because that broken branch or piece of mistletoe doesn’t match the rest of the pattern of the tree. In the same way your business intuition will recognise where there’s a problem when the healthy patterns of your business are disturbed in some way. Just like the tree you need to get your business back into alignment with its healthy pattern to solve that problem.

What’s more your ability to recognise pattern means you know when one tree is the same kind as another because they both have the same pattern. This is the part of your business intuition which will help you recognise new opportunities. When your right-brain recognises a situation or opportunity that aligns to the healthy pattern of your business you’ll know, even if you don’t yet have all the data, that that’s a situation in which your business can thrive in. Saying yes to such opportunities is a wonderfully empowering way to use intuition in your business decision making.

So one of the best ways to succeed in business is to strengthen your intuition. Knowing your intuition comes from the pattern-based thinking of your right-brain gives you a clue as to how you can do that. Spend some time each week working on your ability to recognise patterns and your intuition will grow stronger. You can do this by spending time in nature which is full of complex patterns called fractals. You can watch fractal zoom videos on YouTube or simply look for patterns all around you, in the people you pass and the things you notice on your media feed. Or of course you could study Fractology.

The 3 Minute Solution for Greater Wellbeing

Are you feeling stressed? Out of sorts? As if you’re dragging a weight around with every step?

If so there’s a 3-Minute Solution to give you the pattern of balance for better wellbeing. This pattern is important energetically and neurologically.

Balance
There’s no need to drag yourself through life. Let go of the struggle and give yourself the time and love to find balance.
Leon Brown
Balance work life
Life is like riding a bicycle – in order to keep your balance, you must keep moving.
Albert Einstein

 

All of us get stressed when we lose our connection to our true self – to Who We Truly Are. If we’re not to get stressed we need to maintain one of the fundamental patterns of a healthy life – our balance.

Neurologically and energetically staying balanced is a major key to increasing the ease of connection to Who We Truly Are. When we’re out of balance our system has to constantly compensate for that, which is a drain on our energy and a drag on our efforts. When we’re out of balance we never run at our optimal state and tend to generate more toxicity than usual – a bit like when your car is out of tune it’ll throw up more oil and crud into the engine.

Balance can be static, similar to the picture at the left above – weight on either side of a fulcrum needs to be even if the fulcrum is to stay level. That might work for rocks but it doesn’t work in our human existences. We can’t sit still – there’s too many fun and worthwhile things to be doing.

That means we need a dynamic balance, not a static one. That is what Albert Einstein was speaking about, as quoted on the right above. In energetic terms, it means if we have energy flowing out we need to have the same amount of energy flowing in if we’re to stay balanced. That is the kind of balance that maintains each of your chakras. Your chakras are vortices of electromagnetic energy – they are similar in pattern to a whirlpool. They maintain their shape and structure not through a rigid structure, like your bones, but through the pattern of a balanced flow.

Neurologically a balanced flow is even more important. You have neurological information and impulses flowing from your brain down your nerves and into your body – that’s called the efferent flow. That’s how your brain tells your muscles what to do.

You also have a neurological flow that goes from your toes and fingers back up your nerves and into your brain – called the afferent flow. That’s how your system knows if what it did worked or not.

Maintaining a balanced neurological upflow and downflow helps balanced flows other in your system – like your kundalini energy. It’s essential for wellbeing, both energetically and physically.

Whirlpool
A whirlpool is an example of dynamic balance. Its pattern is maintained by the flow on one side of the pool balancing the flow on the other. If either flow was to decrease the whirlpool would disappear.

 

With this simple exercise you can maintain this essential balance in your system. It doesn’t take long – in fact, if it takes you more than 3 minutes then you’re forcing it, rather than guiding the flow.

Done correctly, this simple exercise will bolster your wellbeing by maintaining a healthy flow in your system. Like many of the techniques I teach, it’s simple but not easy. It requires a clear focus and a strong intention. As with all things, the more you practice it, the better you’ll become at it and the easier it will be. Then it might only take you 1 minute!

Here’s how you do it:

ENERGY BALANCE

  • Focus on the upflow and downflow in your spine. You can focus on your energy or nervous system flow, whichever works better for you. The effects are the same.
  • Intend for both flows to perfectly balance each other.
  • As they come into balance you may notice your body’s relief. Just as good physical posture is easier on your muscles, good EM posture is easier on your nerves.

If you can, do this at the start of each morning to give you good energy for the day and last thing at night to help you recover from the stresses of the day and to improve the quality of your sleep. That way, you’ll really capitalize on your 3 minutes to create tremendous energetic, neurological and physical well-being for yourself.

3 Keys to an Aligned Path

SignpostWe all want many different things in life and, as a consequence, it seems we are so often pulled in so many different directions it is exhausting.  It seems impossible for us to have everything we want.

Yet it is possible.  The more aligned our path in life is to our true essence, to the most complete expression of who We Truly Are, the easier and more graceful our progress becomes.  There are three keys that can help us create this.  Each key is a point of focus on our path and if these three are aligned all things along our path tend to fall into place.

First key:

Our ‘to do’ list are things which we already know how to do, we just have to organise ourselves to get them done.  Usually these are things that we need to do over the next couple of months, at most.

Second key:

Our goals differ from our ‘to do’ list because they require us to learn and grow, to master some new skill or overcome some old obstacle.  That’s the point, actually, because our goals motivate us to grow.  Generally, most goals will take us two to five years to complete.

Third key:

Our dreams differ from our goals because they aren’t real to us right now.  That’s the point.  When we focus on our goals we’re generally taught that we need an ‘action plan’ for them and that we have to consider what is possible.  Dreams enable us to consider the impossible and give ourselves permission to play with the idea of what it would be like if we had a life which is currently out of our reality.  By allowing ourselves to play with these extraordinary ideas we begin to connect with them.  Without dreams we wouldn’t be able to grow beyond our current reality.  Considering what our life could be like in thirty to forty years is a good way to tap into our dreams.  That length of time is enough for our minds to be able to accept that anything is possible.

Yet oPath2ur dreams give an overall alignment to our life.  They enable us to find the best way to align our goals and our ‘to do’ list.  It is the long focus of our dreams which create the easiest and most graceful alignment of our path, and also enable us to go beyond our current reality.

Often in so much less time than thirty to forty years!  If only we give ourselves permission to dream of our happiest life.

Understanding Power and Authority

Invariably we reach a point on our path where we need to accept, or open to, power.  This is because we are all part of the Divine and the Divine is, of course, powerful.  We cannot become who We Truly Are without becoming powerful.

That, howevFractal2er, is the difficulty for many of us.  So many of us have experienced the negative side of power so that we believe that power is having ‘power over’ another, and we are naturally uncomfortable with that.  We instinctively know that having power over another Being carries with it considerable risk; risk to the other, than we will negatively impact their integrity, and risk to ourselves, that we will step off our path if we become distracted by the effects of power.

Yet if we are to become who We Truly Are we need to become powerful.  So what are we to do?

Understanding wisdom helps.  Wisdom is knowing how and when to use power in order to have a constructive rather than a destructive outcome.  At least with wisdom we know we aren’t harming the other.  Yet even with wisdom power can be a burden.

Understanding the true nature of Authority overcomes this issue.

Let’s coFractal5nsider that power flows, like all else, from the creative flow of the Universe.  Each of us, whether we are conscious of it or not, directs that flow in order to create our lives and all the things we do and create within it.  Exactly how we direct that flow determines whether or not doing so will add to our integrity, and self-connection, or will distract us from it.

Consider for a moment that we all have a different fractal pattern. For example, there are three different ones in this post.

Now imagine if the creative flow of the Universe was flowing through each one. It’s easy to see how the creative flow would come through with a different alignment.  It is this aligned power which is what our Authority is.

If we attempt to expand our power with an alignment which is not ours, then we will limit how much power we allFractal4ow through.  It is this lack of inherent alignment which has the effect of corrupting our own system.

When we allow our power to flow through with inherent alignment to our integrity, it then holds within it the natural expression of our essence.  This is what we call Authority.  It also enables us to open to the power of our Divine self without resistance, because all we are doing is fulfilling whatever is our function within Universe, as we were meant to do.

So it isn’t true that power corrupts, unless it’s not aligned to our integrity.  That is, power without true Authority corrupts; but power that comes from Authority builds our integrity, as well as the world around us.

A while longer . . .

In recent emails I’ve discussed how the current turbulent energy is going to continue until mid 2017.  This is the feeling I’ve had for a long time.

A while ago I came across the following information that resonates with me.

The outer planets (Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto) go through cycles of conjunctions, waxing squares, oppositions, waning squares and conjunctions again. A waxing cycle flows positive energy to the global collective, while a waning cycle is more depressing.  This has an especially potent affect upon codependent minds, creating cycles of optimism and destructive desires. In history, periods of waning cycles (around 1343, 1850, 1915, 1939) correlate with destructive events such as plagues, economic depression, famines and world wars. Periods of waxing cycles (such as after the second world war or between 1990 and 2000) correlate with economic booms, building and expansion and collective optimism.

I have since found the graph below to be quite helpful so I thought I would share it with you.  For me, the effect is not so apparent in whether the cycle is above or below the line, but whether or not the trend is up or down.  Notice the current negative trend will shift direction to a more positive one around 2017.

A Fractologist’s view

I’ve been asked many times what it is we Fractologists see.  It’s a tricky question of course, because every Fractologist perceives energy and its underlying fractal structure differently.  Some of us see it, though in different ways, some of us feel it and some of us hear it like a repeating phrase of music.

But no matter how we perceive it we all perceive the same integrity pattern that underlies and creates the essence of all things.

This short video is a fractal zoom video.  It’ll take you deep into the most famous fractal of them all, the Mandelbrot set.  Notice how much infinite detail there is in the fractal, and how the initial pattern keeps turning up, no matter how deeply we go.  These are essential fractal traits.

World Science Festival

holographic_world-757x467I’ve recently been listening to some of the recordings of the World Science Festival.  This is a very cool gathering that happens in New York where eminent scientists get together to let the world know what is happening at the frontiers of science.  There are many excellent talks to choose from.

What I particularly found fascinating was how many of the panels included physicists and philosophers.  That in itself is a powerful sign of how close our understanding of the world around us and our consciousness is becoming.

In the talk I’ve included here, which you can also find at the World Science Festival website at http://www.worldsciencefestival.com/programs/holographic_world/ , they’re not only talking about the world we know it as a hologram but it seems they are getting very close to understanding that fractals are essential to a unified understanding.

Note where Professor Raphael Bousso talks about how their growing understanding of black holes has led them to realise that the key is to unify quantum mechanics, which is about information, and gravity, which is about the shape of space and time.  Fractals hold complex information in simple codes, and our understanding of them was derived from topology, the study of shapes and surfaces.  So far they are still studying the information side of things from a linear perspective, which is, I believe, holding up the next significant breakthrough.  But when a network theory of information is developed they’ll understand better that the information on the surface of a black hole is not so much individual bits of information but networked bits, and then we’ll see another revolution in technology.

Or so I believe.  It’s going to be interesting to see what happens.

Power of the Hologram, Brazil

DSCN0560
Many new Fractology friends at the Power of the Hologram, Sao Paulo, Brazil

This trip to Brazil has marked many milestones.  It’s seen initiations and the first graduation here in South America.  We were able to speak to a large mainstream medical congerss in Brasilia and we ran the Power of the Hologram for the fourth time in Brazil.

Fractology is entering a new cycle and this was evident by the enthusiasm of those who were present for the Power of the Hologram.  Many of these were people who have not been previously exposed to Fractology and many of them we had not met before.  Fractology is reaching a wider audience and we’re delighted to be making new friends.

A well-deserved celebration

Last week Monika von Koss graduated from her Fractology training.  She is the first practitioner to complete her training not just in Brazil, but in the whole of South America. This is a huge achievenn significant step forward for Brazil and Fractology.

Monika has had a successful psychotherapy practice in Sao Paulo for many years and with this graduation adds significantly to her skill base.  The benefits of having a Fractology Practitioner in such a large city is huge.

Congratulations Monika.

We wish her all the very best with her practice and ongoing journey.

Holographic Initiations in Brazil

Holographic initiates with Dr Catherine Wilkins

Today we marked a milestone in Fractology. We had a group initiation into the hologram, and fractal perception which is enabled by holographic space. This initiation is done part-way through the Fractology Practitioner training and marks a milestone in our spiritual and metaphysical awareness.

This group initiation is a shift globally for Fractology, and for me personally as I haven’t initiated more than one person at a time into this space before now.

Fractology is growing up and going global.

Congratulations to all the initiates. The future for Sao Paulo is looking brighter by the minute.

The Power of Ecstasy, Brazilian Style

Tuning into Ecstasy
DSCN0469
More ecstatic people on the planet. Yay!!

Last weekend we ran The Power of Ecstasy in a beautiful hidden spot outside Sao Paulo here in Brazil. I’m always inspired by watching participants open up to new levels of joy and abundance in their lives.

We welcomed back many familiar faces and some new ones as well. It was a very powerful workshop with all the participants opening to the new understanding that they can create through joy and ecstasy, rather than through negative states. This is such a new concept for many people it takes a while for it to catch on but once we share the practical skills the shifts we see are wonderful.

DSCN0458
A wonderful spot to do our soul work.

The feedback we’ve had since the workshop is that many of the participants have had life-changing shifts in awareness, self-connection and energy.  We’re looking forward to witnessing the expansion in their lives.

We are all meant to create this way – through the joy of being in the creative flow of the Universe. But, as always, it helps to know how!!

Chichen Itza

DSCN0249This is an image of the main pyramid they’ve excavated at Chichen Itza, the largest and most well-known of the Mayan cities surviving to this day. It was still inhabited when the Spanish arrived and it was just too big for them to dismantle, though some of the outer areas were taken down as the Spanish used the stone for their own buildings.

The way the top of it pokes up above the surrounding trees weirdly reminds me of some scenes from Star Wars.  What do you think?

Fractologia

Catherine and her advanced students in Sao Paulo
Catherine and her advanced students in Sao Paulo, Brazil

I’ve been working here in Sao Paulo for the past week. It’s always wonderful to work with a group of people so open and eager for the work and understanding that comes with it.

There’s a group of students I’ve been working with since the first time I came. They aren’t studying Fractology, as such, but many of the other advanced awareness techniques Fractology has developed. We meet now every trip for advanced lessons and their ability to now tune into a precise resonance is encouraging in so many ways.

It’s so long between trips I don’t think my Portuguese is getting much better though. Unless you count an additional couple of words getting better.

Fractologia is Portuguese for Fractology.
