One of the very valuable aspects of the language of creation is being opened up into and connected to your multiple intelligences.
To recap the 2 previous blogs regarding how the templates work: use of the word ‘craving’ catalyzes direct connection to Creation, even when we did not fully realize the disconnect or its implications. Next, having to write resonant words or phrases in the blanks puts us in a different relationship with life and ourselves, literally. When moving with resonance, we think and perceive from harmony and attunement, which are relational ways to perceive, think and act, not subject-object ways to relate to life. This is very different than the system we were born into, often taking some getting used to. We might find ourselves softening, less able for the harder edges of protect/defend, us vs. them, etc. We may find ourselves more able to get the other person’s perspective, leaving you less absolute about many beliefs or world views you had before.
Also, when ‘thinking’ from resonance, rational intelligence is sometimes suspended, letting us access our other forms of intelligence, acclimate to them, learn their value in our lives, and how or when they show up in our lives. Other dimensions of who you are revealed (or revealed more), are validated and used more frequently, freely or with more confidence. This expands how you know what you know, making how you relate to the world around you, how you commune with life even more malleable and informative. This expands and changes who you know yourself to be. Continuing to move with your other intelligences develops confidence in your own experience and its intrinsic value, which often not instilled in us from the system we were born into, especially if developmental trauma was present. Gaining trust in and value of our own experience sets a new foundation for your identity, which changes many trajectories of self-actualization. What a marvel!
In addition, there is considerable research indicating that use of resonant words and phrases, in itself, changes neural pathways, causing them to grow bigger and better, and to repair themselves much faster/more effectively, to just say it in short terms. One neuroscientist from South Africa who has studied the effects of negativity on the brain has proven that negativity does considerable damage to the neurons in the brain, with resulting physical, emotional, mental health ramifications. All of those things affect our identity, resonance improves brain health directly and which will filter down to sense of self, personal power, contentment with place in the universe, and more.
In the Observing part of the template, writing what you are present to activates a vital component of mindfulness. Being present in the moment reduces stress, which has a host of physical, mental and emotional health benefits. Being present in the moment amplifies your ability to perceive, and thus be present to more, which increases resilience, experience of personal power, and the ability to move forward in desired ways.
Can you believe all this? How amazing. It is not totally easy to sum up these technical aspects of how the templates work. The risk is that by saying these components briefly (even though it’s over several installments), you all will not be as present to the marvel of the templates as I’d like. More importantly, I really ask that you be present to the marvel of how the templates open you up into more of yourself, your life, your purpose, and all those interrelated words we use so often. They are all true. Please take the time to steep in each technical aspect I’m sharing, and please ask questions. Then, believe it or not, there’s still more which I’ll share in the final part next time I post.
