Path of Growth Enneagram type 9 self improvement
Enneagram type 9 self improvement Basic Essential Practice: Notice how your energy stretches out and is drawn by the various environmental demands on you, all fuelled by your driving energy of inertia or inattention to yourself, from this grounded, responsive, openhearted, and non-judgmental posture.
This comes from your fundamental idea that to be liked, respected, and safe, you must blend in, go along to get along, and not make a big issue of yourself.
Can you pause, take a deep breath, and see that what is essential to you — your priorities, wants, and desires – have faded into the background?
Pull your focus back within, gather it, and connect to yourself from this grounded point in your body’s gravitational core in your belly.
Then direct your energy and attention on your boundaries, limits, and priorities.
This entails learning to love yourself in the same way that you love others, not more or less.
From here, you may take action that benefits both yourself and others.
Remind yourself of the efficacy of what you can do with this clarity of concentration.
And remember to pay attention to how people react when you allow yourself to stand up for yourself and love yourself while still caring about others and their well-being.
Additional Reflective Key Themes:
Take a minute or two three or four times a day to focus yourself and think on one of the following:
Multiple environmental arguments are competing for attention.
Observe how your attention is drawn to people and the needs of the environment regularly.
Use this as a cue to return to your priorities and needs.
Your body is resisting.
Make an effort to pause and see where your resistance appears in your body.
Recognize that digging in indicates something essential to you; otherwise, there would be no resistance.
Then investigate what is important behind this resistance.
I am seeking solace while avoiding confrontation.
Stop and note how discord and conflict make you feel and where this manifests in your physically felt sense.
Use this to remind yourself that conflict occurs naturally, and the question is how to deal with it productively.
Then try your best to put this concept into action in your life.
Short Thoughts on Reclaiming the Essential Quality
Practice many times a day for a minute or so, stating and living one of the following for a few days at a time with openhearted compassion toward oneself.
Do all of this with the receptive energy included in the “may I.”
Remember that the superior quality or virtue for type Nine is proper action, which is an activity that reflects the self equally to all people.
May I concentrate on what is essential, particularly in the midst of pain and conflict?
May I be able to find my goal and purpose?
May I be conscious of my apathy toward me, understanding that proper behavior stems from valuing myself as much as I appreciate others?
I’d want to point out that resistance and passivity are indicators of something significant going on within.
Would you please help me to remember my priorities and my worth?
