On the other hand, no one can stop you from being Centered.
It is simple to understand why modern culture avoids teaching you to be Centered in your body, here and now in the Present moment. The reason is this: if you are Centered, then you have power – more power than can be suppressed by the modern methods of hierarchical governments, institutionalized religions, and corporate marketing agencies combined.
When you are Centered you have power to consciously Choose among more options than are presented, power to Declare what is so and what is not, power to Ask questions the answers to which do not exist in current reality, and power to take unprecedented action. These are standard InitiatedAdult powers.
When you are Centered you have the kind of power that Andrew Jackson meant when he said, “One man with courage makes a majority.” (Note: We are certain that Mr. Jackson phrased his observation in this particular vernacular merely as a linguistic convenience, and that, if asked, he would heartily agree that the principle applies equally well to women!)
Modern society is so lacking in references to the noble qualities and nearly unimaginable powers of the Initiated Adult Woman or Man that trying to compensate for this deficiency through a mere website is neither dignified nor substantial enough to rectify the condition. What is called for is an entirely new society, a society that supports each person to realize the fullness of their humanity through embracing their Archetypal destiny. We call this new society: Archearchy, the culture that is rapidly emerging around the world now that matriarchy and patriarchy have run their course.
You Have 5 Centers - One In Each Of Your 5 Bodies: Physical, Intellectual, Energetic, Emotional, Archetypal
YOUR PHYSICAL CENTER
Your Physical Body has a Physical Center of Gravity located approximately 3 fingers below your belly button. This is where you would naturally balance if someone held you up by your hip bones. Your Physical Center is located halfway back in your abdomen, behind where your belt-buckle would be, and it does not move around. Athletes, gymnasts, dancers, and martial artists come to experience the importance of putting their Energetic Center on their Physical Penter to Become Centered. But as soon as you ask one of them on a date or if they talk to their mother, they probably give their Energetic Center of Being away instantly away and become childish, emotional, numb, adaptive, or wiggly.
YOUR INTELLECTUAL CENTER
Since childhood and school you have been hammered into Verbal Reality, where words prevail. This means that once you find a word for something you know its category. Then your experience of the thing disappears and all you have is the concept of the thing. School empowers your Intellectual Body horrendously at the expense of perceiving through and training your other 4 bodies. Without being aware that your friends and colleagues are afflicted with the same distortion you adopt 'knowing' as your highest value, and live in an intellectual desert with at best, Intellectual Intimacy.
YOUR EMOTIONAL CENTER
Because of school's focus on remembering facts, understanding information, and the logical thinking of Verbal Reality, the intelligence of your Emotional Center has been relegated either to childhood or to dangerous insanity. Recent research has shown that the heart is made up of nearly half brain-like nerve cells. When you memorize things by heart, you know that your heart is your second brain and that your heart can think and speak in addition to experiencing and expressing valuable feelings. Your Emotional Center has both feelings and emotions and is an immense source of energy and information for living your life and delivering your Archetypal Lineage.
YOUR ENERGETIC CENTER
Your Energetic Center is mobile. It can mover around. It either moves around consciously, or unconsciously. That would be up to you. If you give your Energetic Center to another person then you give away your authority, your ability to make decisions, to create, to take action, to ask dangerous questions, to hold and navigate space, to be present as yourself, and so on. This is a lot to give away. Why would you do it? To be safe. Why do you think you are safe if you give your center away? Because you think that if you are not dangerous, someone else will take care of you. Is this true? I don't think so. No one can take your Energetic Center away. If someone else has your center, if you are being adaptive and small, you gave your Energetic Center away. You can give your Energetic Center away to anything. I have seen people give their Energetic Center to the Television, to their children, even to their dog. The real question here is: can you keep your Energetic Center and not give it away to anything? We will see...
YOUR ARCHETYPAL CENTER
Your Archetypal Center is the Energetic Center of your Archetypal Body. It activates when your your other four bodies come online in your awareness and when you develop more sensitive navigation skills. Your Archetypal Center is in your 4 bodies when you are in service to your Archetypal Lineage, and also in the space that you are working in when serving your Archetypal Lineage, and also in the work you are doing. Before you have jacked-in to your Archetypal Lineage it is not much worth trying to figure all this out. After you jack-in to your Archetypal Lineage you gain access to the Archetypal Domains, and can explore 5 Body Intimacy Journeys.
PROCEDURES FOR STAYING CENTERED
You can do this.
Use Your Attention to find out where your Energetic Center is. How do you do this? You look for what you have been doing with it. What you have been doing may be habitually giving your Energetic Center away to external authority figures. Then you can avoid being seen as a threat. You delude yourself into thinking you can avoid being responsible.
Wake yourself up. You live in a responsible universe. Responsibility cannot be avoided. What are you doing with your Energetic Center? Find it. Put your attention on it. Keep your attention on your Energetic Center. Go to Step 2.
Noticing what you are up to gives you clues about where your Center is.
-If you wonder what people might think of you, your center is with those people and you are Being Adaptive. Take your Center and Authority back from them.
- If you think about where your center is, your center is your mind.
Put your energetic center on your physical center.
- If you are planning a future conversation, your center is in the future. Bring your Center into a Minimized NOW.
- If you keep reliving a past conversation, your center is in the past. Go through the Emotional Healing Process and bring your Center into a Minimized NOW.
- If you think someone is persecuting you, then Your Gremlin has brought you into a Low Drama. Tell your Gremlin to "Sit!" Who your Gremlin blames, you empower.
Use your intention to move your Energetic Center on your Physical Center. This is not done with imagination but with your intention. You set your intention to be centered. It could help to put your hands on your physical center (in between your hipbones and halfway between your belly and your back). When you are centered, stay there. Experience the sensation of being centered. Do not think about the experience, just have the experience.
When you do that, you have the experience of Being Centered.
Learn to say No and Stop from your center, learn to say Yes from your center, learn to say what you want from your center (and not what TV wants, or what school taught you to want), learn to express what you sense and feel, learn to move without words, learn to touch without reason,...
When you are centered, declare energetically your Grounding Cord that is a 10cm diameter cord linking your Energetic Center to the Center of Gaia. You are then grounded.
Bubble of Personal Space
When you are centered and you declared your grounding cord, declare your Personal Bubble of Space. This is your space, no one can enter it without your permission. You are then bubbled.
To keep your center, grounding cord and bubble, you need your Sword of Clarity out all the time - day or night, work or at home, with your loved one and your enemies.
When you find your own Center, you find the Center of the Stone.
Being Centered is not a one-time achievement. It is a daily practice.
Practice Being Centered Now
Matrix Code BCENTERD.01
Centering Process: Your physical center is your physical center of gravity. It is located about two fingers below the navel, right on the inside of your body, a bit in front of your spine.
Step 1: Right now in front of the computer, bring all of your attention from wherever it is (that thing you want to do, the person you just spoke to, what your next task will be, the noise outside), and put it, concentrated like a grapefruit, on your physical center, on the inside of your body. Stay there breathing, while trying to sense your guts. Do not try to imagine it. The experience you get is Being Centered. You can do it with eyes closed or open, but eventually open them to read the next step.
Step 2: Stay Centered and open your eyes. Keep most of your attention, 90% in your Centre, while the open 10% are being used to read. Check it out how that feels like in all your bodies. Keep breathing. If you notice yourself making stories or loosing your attention, bring it back to your physical center.
Step 3: Stay Centered and with your attention still 90% on your Centre, move with your eyes open, sitting on your chair, and take a look at your surroundings. Keep bringing your attention back to your Centre. Look around at the objects, look at the things in your home or office without them being a shopping list. Take 2 minutes for this.
Step 4: Now staying Centered, get up and move around. Change speeds and directions, all while staying Centered. Check out what speed is, at the moment, too fast for you to keep being Centered or too slow. Does moving slow get you in your head? Does moving very fast get you in your head?
Step 5: (This is best done with people in a live group or a video call, but you can grab a photograph of different people you know). Stay Centered and stay breathing bring yourself closer to the people. Either move closer to one of them, or bring your face closer to the screen and camera, so you can look at them closely. Notice if you give your Centre away to someone, if you give your Centre to someone younger than you, older than you, from the same or opposite sex. Keep bringing yourself back to Centered. And breathe. If you give your Centre away very quickly, you can close your eyes to get it back and get open your eyes, and continue the exercise. Move to a different person. Do this last step for 4 minutes.

Once a week, choose one of the five and notice it. At least three times in the week, write in your Beep! Book about all the ways you notice that you give your center about it.
For example, under Relationships, you might write: I give my center to my partner when I think my partner should buy me more flowers because we are in a relationship, and when he says things I am embarrassed about and when I didn't tell him I wanted to be in the bath with the door locked so no one would come in last night.
Under Education, you might write: I give my center to my philosophy professor from years ago when I go into low drama about how university didn't prepare me for life.
