An article by Anke Sommer
The following article series invites you to think, rethink and discover. You will also be introduced to a systemic point of view. In the core you can recognize systems by cause and effect. Everything has a cause and everything has an effect. Effects can be positive as well as negative. The LEADERSHIP work gives every conscious person the opportunity not simply to accept negative effects as given, but also to change them by assuming responsibility. This assumption of responsibility happens through simple and pragmatic actions in the smallest and everyday sense. Step by step.
Organ recollections feel alive
If we are part of a development process, sooner or later we encounter so-called body memories. These save exactly what has happened organically in an unprocessed experience. Imagine you were a young student and on your way to school you were ambushed. A few teenagers struck so hard that a temporary ventricular fibrillation occurred. Very dramatic, painful and unsightly.
Now that you are an adult, you haven’t thought about this event for a long time. Perhaps your body led you to suppress this event. But this does not change the fact that the information was not completely forgotten. It is conceivable that some of the information available at that time, if you have not processed this event, is still present in your organ today.
In the LEADERSHIP development, this information is viewed objectively. The term information stands for the event itself or all aspects related to it. The neutral term also clarifies the necessary objectivity with which the former experience should be viewed. The aim is to expand your personal understanding and therefore also to understand each of your organs not only in its original function, but also as a storage area for old information.
The worse the imprinted event was, the more objectively this should be considered.
In the LEADERSHIP work there is a main goal: pick up (by recognizing and naming) the things that are blocking you in everyday life – and view blockages and bad memories not as drama, but as a sad part of a normal life. This makes it possible for you to face blockages objectively and expand your creative power.
In stressful phases of life, your feelings tend to decline and your body doesn’t like that. This is because your body is limited by the decline in feeling in its range of effect. Your body indicates this to you through reactive signals that come from your original experience. In our example, the heart of the now grown man would stumble.
In stressful times the old memories will wake up and mix with your usual stress signals. This can irritate you if you do not consciously deal with it, i.e. do not consciously pick up your signals. The picking up of stress signals and old information happens on an objective and distanced level. Purely on the level of recognition and naming. Hypothetically, it does not need any more.
The more emotionally you pick up, the more you leave the claim of the LEADERSHIP work, to be able to deal even with facts that are difficult to imagine, unbiased and therefore without valuations of the mind. Your emotionality would thus prevent you from overcoming an unconscious blockage.
Systemic Effect of the Organ Heart
Can you imagine that your heart has more than one function? The organic function quickly lights up. Our heart has a fulminant effect in terms of life support. We feel the heart when we are hurt. If we are rejoice, it beats capers. The heart also carries further information. It stores everything that concerns matters of the heart. So also situations that we have experienced together with our heart.
From a biological and sociological point of view, the heart stands for the topic of existence. Sociologically, everything is archived here that significantly threatens existence. It would even be possible that the storage is older than one’s own existence. If you follow this thought, it would also mean that the generations whose parents, grandparents and great-grandparents have experienced a war or similar terrible conditions are more burdened with systemic information that affects the heart.
Up to the great-grandparent level we are able to grasp systemical information personally. This means that information, which came into one’s own system in the past, can work up to the present, as long as no one has taken up this information before and thereby reduced its effectiveness.
So to a certain extent, your heart would also carry old information, if the aforementioned generations before you had experienced war or similar terrible conditions. It makes sense to think about it, because as representatives of a peaceful society we here become aware that it is a gift to our heart to live as far away as possible from existentially threatening information.
But if we think further, this also means that, evolutionarily speaking, the decrease in wars strengthens the functioning of our heart, since less information that threatens our existence burdens our heart.
Have lots of fun with discovering and picking up your signals!
