The light and dark arrows are ways that we seek to know our selves. There is a major difference for us when we are in our addictive patterns and behaviors, in how we seek to know who we are and how we make impact. When something happens, we choose our response to the energy. The choice we make carries our energy into that engagement, the arrow of energy. This then impacts what continues to be created in our life.
Picture each of these energy choices as arrows. There are 3 different sets of arrows, dark, light and rainbow arrows. Each set of 7 arrows builds energy; for example, the #1 arrow is inside the #2 arrow and so on through each set. So the #7 arrow has inside it each of the other 6 arrows in its set of arrows.
Let’s take a look at the energy choices we can make. Through awareness of our choices, we can learn and choose ways to engage that allow us to become more sober in our relations with self, life and others.
Many times when we are not feeling balanced, at a minimum, or in our addictive patterns and acting out through our addictive behaviors ultimately, we will look outside our selves for reflections of who we are and how we are accepted in life. We do this by looking for validation from others and we give our power away. This seeking from others can look like: emotional approval, mental recognition, physical security and spiritual acceptance.
|1.||Attachments||There is something outside us that is/has something we think we don’t have, we attach our energy to it to try and get it.|
|2.||Dependencies||Strong wants. Attachments that we dig our heels in about. (I depend on it being there so I can feel worthy)|
|3.||Judgments||We put others down in order to feel ok about our self. Creates strong separation energy.|
|4.||Comparisons||Carries group identity. Need support to validate my judgments and separation energy|
|5.||Expectations||Caught in utmost needs of the past or future. Caught in delusions.|
|6.||Needy, Wounded and
|This is the height of self-indulgence. The absolute need for love, recognition, acceptance, security and support from others as a way to define yourself. It’s like a leaky cup, never enough of … to fill the vacuum that exists.|
|7.||Self Pity/Self Importance||Holding all 6 other dark arrows. Everything in your life centers on how important you are. You can and will use and abuse all the worlds of Grandmother Earth. Definitely, in self-destructive patterns. All engagements are to make you feel more important.|
Rainbow arrows carry the energy necessary to transform the dark arrows to the light arrows. To use these transformational Rainbow Arrows, look at the dark arrow you are caught in and look at the corresponding Rainbow Arrow. Engage the questions to open ‘Transformational spaces’ that can help you move to the Light Arrows. We use these arrows to gain:
|1.||Illumination thru pleasure & knowledge||What do we know brings us pleasure and are we hungry for knowledge? What do we want to learn?|
|2.||Introspection thru alignment with 4 worlds||What can the worlds of GMA Earth teach us about our selves?|
|3.||Trust & innocence by giving away our beauty||How are we still apologizing for our beauty as we engage with self, life and others?|
|4.||Wisdom thru alignment with all forms of all things||How can we develop more intimacy with all types of life? Where do we block our intimacy?|
|5.||Thru full open heart to heart communication||How can we open our heart to our self? No matter what we do, we will not be loved and liked all the time. How can we open our heart to others and appreciate the differences?|
|6.||Giving & receiving in balance||How can we come into balance? What can we do to add our energy to materialize what we know?|
|7.||Abundance & prosperity||How can we continue our self-growth? How can we give our ‘medicine’ back to the planet?|
The light arrows are how we engage when we are self-reliant and happy within ourselves, regardless of what other’s perception of and reaction to us might be. We are gaining individuality, autonomy, freedom, free will and becoming sober in our engagements.
|1.||Self-Awareness||To become aware of all of who I am. When I know the truth, to see something in others, I must have it inside me.|
|2.||Self-Appreciation||Finding value inside myself for all I have discovered I am.|
|3.||Self-Acceptance||Our self-esteem. Know that what I do is the best I could do when I engage.|
|4.||Self-Pleasure||When you have accepted yourself, you allow pleasure into your being.|
|5.||Self-Love||This is self-confidence. Know that what you do, there will always be the possibility of one of the 5 perceptions. Love yourself.|
|6.||Self-Actualization||This is your self-respect. Do what you want and have fun being successful.|
|7.||Impeccability||At any given moment you are doing the best you know how; if you knew better, you would do it. Never take self or life too seriously.|
As we become more aware of our desire to know ourselves more intimately, we see more of our not so light patterns. As a result of this seeking, we now have a map to turn the dark into the light. Use these Light and Rainbow arrows as resources to battle your ‘not so light’ choices. Which dark arrow would you like to counter and change first? In what arenas do the dark arrows appear as options most often? Look at the Light arrows for each of those dark arrows and see the what you are denying yourself by choosing the dark response. Interesting?

I have been sober…
What did the APP give to me?
I needed help. APP’s community support, weekends of teaching and ceremonies taught me how I used comparison and judgment to stay small. Then I learned to reassemble my life with self-care, self-love, and self-worth.
I highly recommend…
In April of 2011…
Thanks to APP…
In my experience…
