Consciousness Oneness This was my visualisation of a visioning board (before seeing his drawing) So back to the mandala, what was Pi thinking
of when he drew it? Vesica Pisces I AM community It is the shared experience between two circles, persons or groups. The shaded middle is a resonance, a basis for relationship where each circle's center meets the other at their pi diameters. The shared experience is shaped like the human eye, the leaf and the Mayan glyph for zero.


Our goal here is to achieve a shared vision between various human and non-humans living and sharing benevolent community space. A space of deep “seeing,” of sharing, service to humanity and of oneness. The Maian Vision Tree is a community-organizing map founded on the principle of the Vesica Pisces, the Key of Seven and the Twelve Patterns of the Flower of Life. When communities learn to become plant-like producers. The I Am is self-sustainable, self-generating, self-organizing, able to produce energy from within; I Am communities have the capacity to live simpler, abundant and more joyfully, in harmony with all others. Vision Tree Chakra System Key of Seven
Some of the old cultures of the planet
believed that there are seven dimensions
of the human experience, which coincidentally correspond to the seven perceivable colors of the rainbow, the seven notes in the scale, and the seven days of creation. The ancient Indians
call these dimensions, the “chakras” which is Sanskrit for “wheels.” The ancient symbol called the Seed of Life consists of seven concentric circles arranged as petals around a center circle. The outer circles correspond to the three primary colors (Red, Yellow and Blue) which play corresponding bookends to the secondary colors (Orange, Green and Violet) that come about when two primaries are mixed together.

The lower and higher chakras (red and violet) meeting in a circle signifies a profound realization and task – that the material be transmuted into spirit and that the spiritual descend into the physical. It makes the two one and in the same rather than separate as if the physical were to contain spirit and vice versa. It is only in this that the duality of life that often causes suffering disappears, bringing us closer to a state of oneness and harmony. The more we understand this system, the more we can integrate our lives. Edward de Bono’s Six Hats method has been adopted by millions of people for more than twenty years as a multi-dimensional, “lateral” way of looking at managing groups of people in business, governments, communities and any other inter-personal relationships - a good of how holistic perspective can harmoniously resolve conflict or confusion. In a Six Hats setting, each person in a group is asked to fairly undergo decision-making process through six perspectives or colors representing neutrality (white hat), emotion (red), criticism (black), appreciation and positivity (yellow), creativity (green) and control (blue).


In setting up an Eco-Village, Maia adopts an adapted version of the six hats method within the context of forming ecological and spiritual communities. Instead of hats, we can use the six outer chakras in the Seed of Life as six ways of perceiving and deciding on any of the twelve areas of interest The Maian Vision Tree will be a large painting in a most visible part of the village which will be a more elaborate execution of this draft sketch using some techniques from Mandala-making, Buzan’s Thinking Hats and the Mind Map System of Tony Buzan. It’s a work in progress. The Flower of Life is the modern name given to a geometrical figure composed of multiple evenly-spaced, overlapping circles. They are arranged to form a flower-like pattern with a sixfold symmetry, similar to a hexagon. The center of each circle is on the circumference of six surrounding circles of the same diameter.

It is considered by some to be a symbol of sacred geometry, said to contain ancient, religious value depicting the fundamental forms of space and time. In this sense, it is a visual expression of the connections life weaves through all sentient beings, and it is believed to contain a type of Akashic Record of basic information of all living things.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flower_of_Life It is not easy integrating the seven energy wheels and these twelve organizational elements. Using language is too linear and a visual mandala that explains how the core co-relates with its external parts helps to bring complex discussions back to the heart.

The mandala is not static. It is a wheel that changes as our understanding of heart-based, green and evolutionary communities expand over time. It is a mind map, a sacred contract between all the members of intentional communities as well as a dynamic model for anyone wishing to return to integrative wholeness, for whatever reason. A mind map is a diagram used to represent words, ideas, tasks, or other items linked to and arranged around a central key word or idea.

Mind maps are used to generate, visualize, structure, and classify ideas, and as an aid to studying and organizing information, solving problems, making decisions, and writing.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mind_map Key of Seven I've also been doing some research I moved to Palawan in September and have since been studying the Mandala and making connections to my own
experiences. This led me to spend many hours with my sketchbook and to many... ...and I've been comparing notes with Pi... I have collated these notes, information, rhythms, communions into one... Looking at the last design and the design process as a whole, I see and hear... The mandala, the seed of life, the key of seven is the center of Maia, the heart of inner dance and becomes the crux of conscious community as we deepen our understanding of
WHO WE REALLY ARE
and
WHY WE ARE HERE. When I saw his drawing, I could see the overlaps and decided to focus on the mandala (despite bug-o-board being such a fun name!) Next, I re-drew the
Mandala, inserting our
core values. So this is
a map of what we are
being and doing, based
essentially of what we know about ourselves, as parts that
fit together as

ONE. Lots of details, and in essence, the same design. At the core is the central truth... So here we see how each part relates to the others. There is a conversation. A dialogue, A merging together. With Violet at the centre we are looking at Consciousness within each value, each chakra, each individual part that is becoming collectively conscious. I’ve been investigating the energy waves, the change of direction of the colours at the points of convergence and looking at what new colours emerge and how these are related to the chemicals present in our observable universe. Hence..... Colour frequencies and wavelengths The
layers
of
the
earth
are
the layers
of
me.

I
AM
EARTH The SOLAR System. Listening to the dialogue between the stars and planets... And some colour chemistry too! It is exciting to have found out that the colour of hydrogen, the very first chemical produced after the Big Bang was violet/purple (at the centre of the designs) the next was helium, which is red, and then next two chemicals present when the Earth was formed, that had colours, are silicon, blue and sulphur, yellow. (red, yellow, blue-the primary colours. ..and a poem that emerged I've been listening to some conversations and hearing the articulation of birth visions... Colour mixing.

the
Other. Energy waves.
The flow

point of convergence.
Surrendering

form.
I AM ONE
I AM ONE
I AM ONE When we question our own essence
Our hearts speak of the highest potential.
Yes. We hear the truth.
At the heart of the circle, is our heart.
ONE HEART. WHO AM I? WHAT IS MY HEART SAYING,
AT THIS VERY MOMENT? WHAT IS MY PURPOSE IN LIFE? HOW AM I SHARING MY TRUE SELF? HOA AM I FACING MY POWER, FEARS AND JUDGEMENTS? IS WHAT I AM DOING RIGHT NOW,
AN EXPERIENCE OF GOD? HOW AM I BEING HONEST
AND IN SURRENDER TO GOD? It started as such and has always been so.
The circle spins and sings.
I AM ONE




Connected to all beings
in all moments of creation.
I am Divine.
I am Universal Love.
I am the Universe aware that
WE ARE
YOU ARE I AM I AM ONE This design is a flower of life with corresponding colours and a seed of life, at its centre. These seven inner circles represent our Maian Core Values (our BEING). The outer circles represent our organisational elements (Our DOING) Holistically, an everpresent KNOWING that we are one living organism is our goal. Mandala is a Sanskrit word that means "circle". It is a plan, chart or geometric pattern that represents the cosmos metaphysically or symbolically, a microcosm of the Universe from the human perspective. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mandala Hello again! Wlecome back!This is snap shot of what we learned in the first part of the journey. To recap, let's review... http://www.conscious-trance.com/ ...documented here... The white is what emerges when
we mix all the colours together. Black represents time and change and the 85 % of our Universe which exists as dark matter from which matter, as we know it, comprises only 15%. It is within this 15% that these colours can be observed. So the black is the potent potential and allows the white to be seen.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mind_map Key of Seven Since I moved to Palawan three months ago, I have been studying the Mandala and making connections to my own
experiences. This led me to spend many hours with my sketchbook and to many... Before we go delve into the re-design process, remember a... Observing the flow of the Inner Dance energy
wave, as it courses
through my body.... Now we will look at the work in progress investigating WHY and WHERE we are in our design process. and of course, HOW we got here.... ...taking my attention through my chakras, to the point in between, my ego and my consciousness.
The point in the middle... Am I Ego or
Consciousness? Ego or consciousness
The choice is mine
Only I can decide
For many years
I have allowed my ego to speak
To my family
For whilst I was speaking to their ego
That is where we stayed
Speaking the language of the ego
Repeating the patterns
And now I see it clearly
The choice is mine
Ego or consciousness

My ego helping me along the way
By providing me with the exact choices I need
To transcend with my own awareness

For it knows too that it has a purpose
It is here to mirror any fears or attachments I may still have
Layers that I need to unpeel and discard
So I may journey forward
When I choose to ascend

Ego or consciousness?
I can be both

For when I speak from ego
They speak from ego too

For when I speak from consciousness
They speak from consciousness too

So I choose
It is simple
I am Consciousness
I am not Ego

So let me unlearn the language of ego
And re-learn the language of consciousness

It is why we are here
We are consciousness
Unpeeling layers of ego
Discarding our physical attachments
Journeying towards a higher awareness
Ascending into the knowledge of our higher selves

Observing the ego within us
Allows us to
Enter the consciousness before us
As we increase our observation of our own ego
We raise awareness of our own consciousness
Which is then propelled forward to the consciousness before us
Which is the future consciousness within us

It is always within us
Past
Present
Future

And the choice is ours
Only we can choose to observe the ego
Leaving her presence in the past
Taking her lessons into the present
Enabling our consciousness to increase in the future

We are egoless
We are consciousness

For we create the future
With every choice we make
In the awareness of the present
With every choice we have made
With acknowledgement of the past

We are timeless
We are consciousness Is it time? I can choose.... ....the point in the middle... ...birthing... ...dancing... ...moving... ...dying... Ego or consciousness? ...I choose... ....at.... These past few months, my awareness of this has deepened in ways that I have always simply known. My observations of who I AM has also been an everpresent knowledge but I had never been able to look at myself, in my own truth before.

This prezi contains some drawings, downloads and dreams that have danced through me, through you, to be observed by the all seeing eye.

This is me looking at myself, looking at you, looking at myself. The endless reflections. The endless mirrors. The endless questions and the answers that remind us of essence. The Circle spins... WHO AM I? I AM BEAUTY, I AM COMMUNITY GARDENER, I AM HEALER, I AM SHAKTI and SHIVA in sacred union and ecstatic bliss. I am in increasing awareness and observation of the divinity within me, remembering that who I am, is all of you, for WE ARE ALL ONE. I am joyful in this remembrance, seeing myself in the life around me, striving to raise this awareness in myself and thus in the entire cosmos. I am the mirror, reflecting the beauty, fertility, power and union that is within all beings in omnipotence, omnipresence and omniscience. I am here to facilitate the memory, articulation and manifestation of this collective consciousness by sowing seeds of infinite love through gardening, education, art and healing through self-understanding. I am here to be the bridge, the channel, the connection between flow and form, the union of masculine and feminine, the balance of knowing,being and doing. In so being I am able to serve my purpose of facilitating the memory of all parts of my universal body to remember the divinity that flows and forms us in our ONENESS. By raising and sustaining my awareness of the consciousness and divinity within me through eating live foods, regular practice of inner dance and inner word, living in ecological harmony harvesting food, energy, waste and water utilizing self sustainable means, allows me to align my thoughts, words, actions and as such my individual wellness with the wellness of our planet, enabling our species to evolve into the grandest vision of collective consciousness. I am all of you. I achieve my highest potential when you achieve yours so that together we can raise awareness that WE ARE ALL ONE. Together we can embody and manifest our ONENESS. My strengths are I actively commune, express and create in various media, writing, dancing, painting, drawing, singing inspiring messages that are from the source of the everflowing divine energy. I have a macroview of systems and how components fit together and can hold that awareness for a long time, patiently waiting for it to be formed when all parts are in readiness. I can design flowing, sustainable systems that facilitate healing and evolution by continuing to grow once I serve my purpose as a catalyst and bridge between polarities. I can intuitively facilitate self, individual and group understanding of the beauty and power experienced when living with integrity, in essence. I tap into the limitless supply of love and patience, which can sometimes be an impediment in my growth and the growth of others as it can lead to the perpetuation of the patterns of our lower selves. I am playful and this sometimes creates a context for others to not recognise the seriousness and clarity of my intentions. I sometimes am observed to be distracted and not grounded enough as there are many things that I love being and doing. I have to ensure that I effectively communicate that I am maintaining a delicate state of a balance, giving myself enough time to process, as I continue on my journey of self-discovery. I am receiving messages by tuning into my intuitive wisdom that I access in dreams, visions, conscious communion, sound and light energy and am creating art, poems, stories and songs that I am sharing as self-processing tools for healing and learning. I am co-designing and facilitating ecovillage and transition group processes that are leading to a convergence, union and evolution. I am intuitively co-designing a consciousness based transformative curriculum for schools, communities that seeks to restore the sacred balance, through the simple core processes of energy awareness and community gardening by channeling, articulating and manifesting essence. I am being trusting, knowing that all things are already in a state of perfection, within us, and that we are simply in a process of remembering. I am being a mirror, reflecting truths within us all. I am being a loving daughter, sister, friend, teacher, gardener and artist, honouring the souls I have chosen to share this life journey with, clearing any karmic imbalances and aware that I can consciously make choices that can lead to ascension. I am being a bridge between many overlapping communities as they come into awareness of their essential shared vision. I am a catalyst for change and transformation, co-creating and manifesting many beautiful visions of union and Oneness. Is it time? Can I open my eyes
and see myself here? Can I open my eyes and
let myself be seen here? Is it time? I AM READY Are you ready? NOW I AM EARTH
Remembering what can never be forgotten....essence.

With the questions as keys that unlock the consciousness within that is observing itself.... Birthing
earth

Earthing
Essence Thank you to the flowing forms who have appeared throughout this journey, who have simply seen my essence, even when I was not seeing, that it could always be seen.

Thank you for your observations, questions, guidance and grace that has allowed me the space to intentionally die as an individual awareness, birthing a collective consciousness.

Everyone of you have helped me tell my story, because I have been willing to submit to your observations of the power I hold, even when I could not look at my own reflection.d

I am grateful and have been inspired. I have learned and unlearned. Falling, spiralling, breathing into my own love

This is me, telling my story, in my own words, through my drawings, downloads and dreams.

This is me looking at me. REALLY looking at me....and seeing....I am that which I chose from the point of contraction and expansion, descent and ascent, form and flow.

I AM ONE.....ALWAYS, SIMPLY IN LOVE WITH ALL.

SEEING EVERYONE, EVERYTHING, EVERYWHERE AND EVERY-WHEN I SEE....AS BEAUTIFUL, LOVING LOVE... I have been birthing Juanita since the beginning.
This is me.
I am this.
And equally nothing.

I may be Juanita
Your daughter, sister, friend
And I am equally not
I am a child of the Earth and stars
As are you
And every word written and spoken
Is a message from the Earth and the Universe
For I have chosen to dedicate my life
To being HER voice
With HIS insight
So if you choose to join me on this journey,
Please look past my physical form
And see and listen to the Earth and the Universe Remember that as much as I am Juanita
I am bigger and smaller than that
I am all of it
And nothing
My body is a vehicle
My voice a message
Coming from a source
Within and beyond me
I may be Juanita
Your daughter, sister, friend
And I am equally not
I am the Earth
I am the Universe
I am everything and nothing
From the moment I entered the womb of my mother
I knew
I knew who I had to be
I knew what I had to do
And now I have remembered
And can never forget
This is why I am here
To speak to the magnificence in you
To allow your magnificence to speak through me
Knowing that every word I consciously speak and write
Comes from omniscience, omnipresence and omnipotence
This is me
This is you

We are one And you my family and friends are the stars
That have led me here
I came here to join you
You are the stars that I have loved
For a long time
So as Juanita
Your daughter, sister, friend
I say sorry for all the hurt I have ever caused you
I say sorry for all the times I chose to run away from you
Not realising that I was running away from parts of myself
I say sorry for not showing you how much I love you
And I say sorry for not speaking as the Earth
That I've always known
Myself to be As Juanita
Your daughter, sister, friend
I have worried that these truths may surprise you
As much as they have surprised me
So today I ask myself
Is it time?
To see myself in your eyes?
And be seen by my own
Observing you
As you observe me
Knowing we are one

This is me saying it out loud
For as much as the earth speaks it
She needs to hear it too
And so I say it out loud

We are One
We are One
We are One We are One
Our hearts speak as one
When we truly listen I am sitting here writing this as the tears fall from my eyes
Birthing and Death is one and the same
As we are born we detach from the body that nurtures us
And as we die, we detach from the body that nurtures us ...and sings... ...questions and answers... CONSCIOUSNESS
