The First Four Nodes

 Orientations of the Nodes

Now that you have an idea of the four orientations, you are ready to learn about the actual nodes. Nodes occur within the EM field any time a particular "area of thought" dominates a person (a person's mind). There are four fundamental "areas of thought" which originate from deep within your being, your mind/body, your central nervous system, and essentially, your genetics.. These "areas of thought" or matrices shape how you and everyone else thinks, feels, and behaves. When one of these matrices are active/dominant in a person's EM field it becomes a "NODE."

Nodes appear and disappear on a constant basis. They can "appear" in any of the orientations and can shift in a fluid manner at any given point in time. So, let's begin with a general overview of the nodes and the pattern at work behind the node.   NODES IN GENERAL

Node 1
Kinetic Ontology (K.O.)


Node 1 (first position) begins in the "OUT" or outer orientation of the EM field. This is simpler than it sounds when you remember that the "OUT" position refers to BETA, so you know immediately that Node 1 is related to physical conditions, states, and behaviors. To be more specific Node 1 (or the Beta Node) is oriented towards physical well-being and safety. When the Beta Node is active/dominant you are oriented towards survival, physical necessity, and existing. In the west, the U.S., so much of life is "cushioned" and "prepared" for us that we do not feel the crunch of survival as much as primitive man and woman. Sadly, this is not true for all countries of the world. We no longer are required to hunt for our food or fight off wild animals to survive. Instead, we good to the grocery store and are required to get along with our neighbors. Still, the survival node exists within us and shapes our behaviors "behind the scenes," so to speak. In your modern life, the issue of money and financial well-being is most likely to trigger your Beta Node. Even more important: we can thank the Beta Node for intuitions regarding danger, threat, and safety issues.

Node 2
Kinetic Integration (K.I.)


Node 2 (second position) begins in the "IN" or inner orientation of the EM field. This is also simplified by remembering that the "IN" position refers to ALPHA. See how this is going to work? Node 2 is related to emotional/mental states and activities. Node 2 or the Alpha Node is oriented towards emotional positioning in relation to the environment and "others." The Alpha Node displays your reactions and responses to everything around you, how you perceive it, and what you feel about it. At the very base of the Alpha Node is the need to own thing, possess something, control it, and have it available to you to fulfill your needs. In this sense the Alpha node makes you territorial and in need of status. The Alpha Node determines if you are passive or dominant, aggressive or compliant, etc. The Alpha Node is probably what you are the most sensitive to as an Empath. We you get "hit" with a strong emotion from another person, you are in effect "bumping" into their Alpha Node. Once you fully understand Nodes you will also understand how to work with them and deal with their impact.

Node 3
Linear Integration (L.I..)


Node 3 (third position) begins in the "FRONT" or forward orientation of the EM field. This position refers to the THETA level of Dreamtongue, so you should immediately associate the Theta Node with "thought" (as a separate function from emotion) mind, intellect, language, symbols, and tools. This is the intellectual node, no matter what the configuration of the intellect might be. Intelligence of all forms is shaped here: I.Q., in the traditional sense, but even more. We now understand that there are multiple forms of intelligence, such as musical, spatial, social, emotional, etc. When you are engaging someone in a thoughtful or intellectual conversation (of any level) you are engaging the Theta Node of that person. The Theta node reveals a great deal about us. Since the Theta node is where (and how) you organize information, great quantities of information are available here to be "read" by an Empath.

Node 4
Time Altered Ontology (T.A.O.)


Node 4 (fourth position) begins in the "BACK" or behind orientation of the EM field. This position refers to the DELTA level of Dreamtongue. The Delta Node is where experience and Self are integrated into groups and collections, and even gestalts. The Delta Node is somewhat of a memory bank, and so, is the "wizard behind the curtain" within your psyche. I realize that is an odd analogy to throw out right now, but think about it. Apart from it's core functions the Delta Node directs the relationships you have in your life. Relationships with family, friends, lovers, peers, co-workers, neighbors, strangers, and society as a whole. It is where you fit in socially and interpersonally in your own life. As you might suspect, this is a node of special interest to us all, as for the most part it remains a mystery to many.

Think on these things for awhile. Print or draw out the diagrams that I have provided. Let your self feel the "intuitions" generated by the diagram and relationships between the nodes/orientations. In meditation, these can provoke profound insights. After you have had some time to work with this material, we will go deeper INTO this subject.

Some of you have written and asked me to go into how I discovered and develped the PHI model, the Nodes, etc. At some point I may take some time to tell that story. It is a pretty interesting story to say the least. Some of you were there. Some of you are hearing this for the first time. There is a great plan in action and I am really happy to be part of it.
