from fixation to freedom
Each type holds a spectrum of contracted and expanded patterns. The contracted side are beliefs, perceptions, and reactions that create painful separation experiences. The expanded side are open subtle qualities of consciousness - purity, compassion, appreciation, radiance, peace, spaciousness, bliss, power, and harmony.
We begin life expanded. Stressors, starting with birth, cause our types to contract into fixation. When we loosen and relax back open, fixation dissolves and the subtle qualities remain.
Each fixation is a defense mechanism, a way of coping. Each type has a unique pathway back to expansion. Oscar Ichazo, created this system as a guide to freedom from fixation. We also help people heal from contraction or fixation and embody the expanded qualities.
EXAMPLE with type one
Each type has a unique blind spot that creates a separation experience. The blind spot relates to the open quality of the type. People with the One pattern have a blind spot for grounded relaxed purity. This blind spot prevents them from perceiving and experiencing perfection.
All nurturing environments are inadequate to some extent. This inadequacy is experienced personally and interpreted through the type pattern. When this is experienced by the child with type One, they fixate on a lack of perfection both inward and outward.
Each type has a particular pathway to expansion. This is the way it looks for people with the One pattern:
Perceived inadequacy – There is something wrong in my environment
Delusion – There is something wrong with me, I am flawed
Reaction – Resentment, anger that rejects and says no to life
Compensation – I can not live knowing I am flawed. I will find my flaws and fix them through constant self improvement. The focus on inner flaws leads to perceiving external flaws in the environment and others.
Pathway – Stop looking for flaws and perceive reality simply as it is. Stop rejecting life and accept the world and yourself as you are. This will lead to a recognition that everything is unfolding just as it should, neither right nor wrong, both right and wrong.
