LESSON SUMMARY

Lesson 6: Attuning, Following, & Allowing Practices

In this skills lab we explore two practices to help us attune, follow, and allow with another partner.  we learn to move and modulate in responsiveness to the others we are connecting with. This is called attunement.  Water is the ability to honor and embrace whatever is, including the defense and the part that may be living in a younger view, and protecting something that is important.  You’ll learn two practices to attune, follow and allow.

 

LESSON CONTENT

Attuning, Following, & Allowing Skills Lab

PRACTICE #1: Water Responsiveness Partnered Practice
  1. One partner rests and transmits from Water.
  2. The other partner intentionally does not open system, and defends a little, finding a protector part within them and exaggerating their own natural defense.
  3. The one transmitting Water plays with modulating and adjusting their system in an attuned response to the defense. There is no formula for what to do here, this is an exploration with awareness and inner knowing of how shifts in your energy moment by moment affect your partner.Some possibilities to play with:
    ...if you may be merging –try adding air (awake awareness) to water.
    ...if they are closed, try resting back and giving the person more room.
    ...if they feel hardened, try softening your own system, and diffusing even more.
    ...if they seem ungrounded, try adding some earth to your Water and wait without agenda for them to land.
  4. If you are the one who is being “the defender”, notice how these shifts affect your system and allow yourself to be authentically impacted.
  5. Afterwards share with each other what you each experienced in your felt sense.
  6. Switch roles and do it again.
  7. Submit your practice and receive points towards your Water Bender Apprentice Badge.

 

 

PRACTICE#2: SKILLS LAB: Attuning, Following, Allowing Group Lab
  1.  Start by tracking this collective field feeling the particular entry points to the different levels of wisdom that are in this particular group body.  There are many doorways and we're going to find our way in through the allowing door.
  2. Presence this ever loving awareness that is the water we're swimming in right now.  The presence that is that which liberates. None of us have to do anything.  We are just being with what wants to come through.
  3. Check out the group field, what qualities do you notice?  In this watery embracing awareness that we can release into what qualities do you feel here? As you name the qualities invite your system to open to deeply, deeply receive.  We get to allow in this space, the pleasure of the felt sense, the pleasure of being received.
  4. Tune to the frequency of the warm embracing field.  Our little babies when we came in, what they were signing up for is to come into this warm embracing field.  That's what we're designed for to come into this warm embracing pool of water in the belly.  The waters we were swimming in might have had all kinds of imprints. Invite yourself to open into this.The timeless generation of mothers that go all the way back recognizing that these same waters are inside your being.  What happens if we permission our being to tune to that frequency?
  5. Meet the parts that have the pain of not feeling that.  Meet the parts that have braced against that or have had to hold and recognizing that these waters can receive all of that.  These waters are still here.  Meeting the bracing, wherever it is, meeting it. Meeting where we had to turn away from our tenderness - where our tenderness didn’t feel safe.
  6. Notice our bodies can metabolize this emotional field.  Our bodies have that intelligence imprinted and embedded within we're activating and contacting that intelligence.   Like we are metabolizing all these wounds as a group, so you don't have to do it yourself. Bringing whatever pain that might be here into this space.   Lifetimes can start metabolizing and passing through.
  7. Connect through the visual field. You can use the group as a reference point.  welcome enough space to welcome even your most terrified parts back in, use them, use their doorway.
  8. Invite the earth field to hold the emotional body that can help the whatever is here start to metabolize and feel grounded and safe.
  9. Create a belly heart connection with someone.  Pick one person and send them water and as sparks start moving permission your belly heart.  Open your bellies to the group.
  10. Check the resource in the field as you connect in the territory of these early imprints and places where you might've braced in your system.  Check if you want to come in even closer to meet that.
  11. Notice the fire energy that knows how to move that through.  Nothing you need to do.  It can start to move some of these places that have been frozen. It might be an inner movement.  It might be expressive.  Invite your system to allow what’s here. Earth knows at your own pace.  Feel the life energy that wants to move.  We often view each other as solid, so when we view through water and fire the energy can start to shift and transmute.
  12. Sense of your soul essence that's also wanting to come out, that's wanting to permeate your being. That's wanting to be felt and receive that’s under the clamp that might've turned away when those waters weren't safe, that might've been pissed and said I'm out of here when those waters weren't safe.  That might've frozen when that nourishment wasn't there and your little earthling baby body might've tried to do it yourself.
  13. Notice we are in the space where your essence is safe and welcome.  Feeling that this space in this space, we're contacting that presence that receives, we are the space that receives you. These are the waters when your essence is welcome and wanted.   
  14. Open your system and allow yourself to self-organize.  Some in the group can choose to open their eyes and receive and if there's others with something moving right now that wants to be received, invite yourself to almost amplify it further...whether it's the frozenness, whether it's the turning away, whether it's a feeling of deep need, whatever it is go into the allow. 
  15. Notice you aren’t alone.  When there's a container for you, you don't have to do it alone and you can you open your system to see what wants to move.  You don't have to hold it.  If you feel like you're doing it alone, come back to the heart belly, even inside yourself, inside the allow space and bring it into the group field that is already here.  There's others in this field that know that place too.
  16. Track and allow the other system to inform yours.   Track through their.  It might feel like a bind, like a place you were bound and tied.   Even through that this field can receive that. Yes. Woo hoo. Whew. Oh yeah. And there's the brace, also the terror and just check this field has enough water to hold that terror.
  17. Name what you are tracking and ask them to name what they are experiencing.  Realizing that there are other people in this space that have that pattern.  Let them know you are with them in this experience belly to belly welcoming whatever is named and welcoming the tenderness and the life energy that wants to move.  Welcoming, honoring, and allowing with an open heart anything that comes through - their ancestors, their full self expression, their pain.
  18. Check in to see what happens as you name and allow.  Notice if their system opens or closes.  Notice if the energy moves or stays bound.  Welcome it all as wisdom to be honored keeping a connection through the heart belly.  Allow the imprint to rearrange.
  19. Notice the overflowing nourishment.  Help their system open to glimpse and sip the infinite nourishment that is here feeling that flow as it starts to inform your body, filling them feeling their field start to fill.  Anytime when you're thirsty, you can reach up and there's more.   In the oral process, we can help to reimprint the nourishment that didn't occur. Sometimes we can get nauseous, when the places that have been numb or holding as they come out of that freeze and start to move,  Notice what’s happening for you and in the group field as you connect to the other person.
  20. Submit your practice and receive points towards your Water Bender Apprentice Badge.
