Vision for the Energetic Space of the Hope Chest
Hope Chest meetings are a safe and sacred, joyful and peaceful place, free from fear. They’re designed to be a still space among the chaos, where kindness and consideration are present. The joy created by our deep, inner reconstruction work is sent out to the world, helping to change how the planet thinks and feels and deals with money on this wondrous planet, Gaia.
They begin with a sacred meditation, connecting to Source and conveying our gratitude for our co-creative partnership; then follows a statement of sacred intention.
They focus on Hope-Chest business and leave personal business aside till outside the meeting.
Vision for Hope-Chest Work Work Relations
Our vision for work relations at the Hope Chest is that HC members are One, united in mission and purpose, fully present in the moment at meetings, and open to possibilities, thoughts and opinions without judgments.
HC members are a 100% focused and united front, holding the space for our ideals, with their energy clear and unobstructed, moving forward in a meaningful and sustainable way.
They take personal responsibility for their actions and agree to be accountable for them.
They agree to treat each other with patience, compassion, and understanding, knowing that we’re still human and make mistakes.
Their aim is to work in unison. We recognize that we are not in control and that control is not a quality of functioning Nova Earth. We do not use obligation, coercion or restraint.
We recognize that we are not in control; the Divine Mother is. We acknowledge that control is not a quality of Nova Earth.
Anger can be frightening, causing members to freeze up inside with paralyzing angst and fear.
Any anger within Hope Chest board business calls and even surrounding our board energetically must be set aside. If the member finds it impossible to do that, they should take a temporary breather from the call or meeting and rejoin when back in control.
Members will not ambush another or another’s agenda. Each member is respected, honored, and listened to.
The person absenting themselves agree that the remaining two members can make day-to-day decisions in their absence so that the team is not dead-ended.
Team members in a personal relationship agree to be aware of the possibility of acting as a couple front or tag-team match and agree not to act in that fashion.
Where one party in a relationship is speaking or proposing a motion which would present the appearance of a conflict of interest should the second party join in, the second party will excuse themselves from the discussion and abstain from voting.
When there is a lack of harmony, members agree to apply purity and prudence, remain centered, recognize old grids and simply let them go, knowing when to extend and when to be still or quiet.
They recognize that humour can help us assume new points of view. But it can also be a distraction and lead to misunderstandings so humour should be appropriate in context and timing.
Vision for Hope Chest Communication Protocol
The purpose of the Hope-Chest communication protocol is to ensure reliability, predictability and certainty in communications, allowing for reasonable expectations to be in place for HC business and to be fulfilled.
HC Members complete communication loops in a timely and conclusive way, reporting back and acknowledging when a task is done. A simple done will suffice.
They reply to Skype or email messages in a timely fashion during business hours, 9-5, excluding emergencies. After-hour messages will be replied to during business hours.
They acknowledge that we reach agreements by listening whole-heartedly and respectfully to all points of view, in alignment with Source, heart consciousness, the use of Universal Laws, and the Divine Qualities (i.e., kindness and consideration). They abstain from advising while listening.
They agree to be as transparent, authentic, and vulnerable as common sense allows. They agree to speak the truth without harming another.
They use Perro languaging if and when necessary, such as when a disagreement arises.
Perro involves speaking the factual truth and that only, in a way free of emotion, drama, or intent to wound, in a balanced and compassionate way, while allowing sufficient open listening of the other to discern what is true for them.
Perro involves the choice of neutral, descriptive words, free of negative or positive charges or values. It sets aside the desire to pressure or force.
Communication around absences or any other matter that comes up outside of meetings, pertaining to the HC, is directly messaged or spoken to Karen, HC President.
Communications around absences should be made beforehand, allowing enough time for other team members who may have pending work decisions to have discussions that bring these matters to a stable and satisfactory place before the absence.
Expected dates of return should also be communicated but are later negotiable.
Appendix 1. The Blessings and Virtues or Divine Qualities
The 13 Blessings & Virtues
Twin of temperance. The ability to know in all situations when to proceed and when to retreat; when to take action and when to be still; when to offer help and when to keep silent; to know in exact measure what is required whether it is in baking a cake or healing a psychic injury. All things in correct measure. Prudence encompasses the quality of moderation, the genuine knowing and practice of everything in balance. No one person can live in only one area of their being, their life, and truly be representative of the whole. Prudence allows for the complete and total release of addictions. An unusual trait on Earth. The colors are halion and siroun, which are rays of the higher dimensions and explained below.
Halion is one of the thirteen rays. It is one of the new rainbow rays and is a combination of blue, pink, mauve, some turquoise and violet shot through with mint green. As a chakra it sits at the base of your rib cage and is used as a portal to connect with your star brothers and sisters, as well as to come to know your own star self. Halion was also a planet millions of years ago which evolved to sheer energy. Form was released and the energies of the planet and the collective assumed a new or expanded soul purpose. This energy is known as the halion engineers, constructers – architects – builders of new pure realities be it a building, society or institution. The Council tells us that many of the halion engineers will be assisting us with the building of Nova Earth.
Siroun is the color and ray of peach – soft oranges, pinks, gold; the skin of a peach and the color of a magnificent sunset. As a chakra the siroun sits at the high heart or thymus and is the center for peace, harmony and gentle Love.
Courage in all forms, endurance, the ability to keep going forward when others cease and give up. The virtue of pathfinders. Strength of purpose. Stamina in all senses. Know that patience is a part of fortitude. Fortitude is the encompassing of forbearance, and forbearance is indeed a quality that requires patience. To continue going forward with stamina when you really feel like pushing the individual off the cliff; it will be required in working with 12:12. The vibration is orange.
The gift of heart-knowing of the presence of God. The ability to understand that very often things on Earth are not as they appear. An ability to pierce the illusion of the veil. The only reason for change. Hope encompasses serenity; total and perfect calm. To be in the world but not of it, to be able to remain centered and still, one with who you are regardless of externals. Hope is the color of deep twilight blue, almost navy. It is the deepest color of blue, the color of our beloved Divine Mother Mary.
Twin of clarity; sister of chastity, not in the sexual sense but in the sense of the ability to remain pure in all aspects of self. To remain centered when there is chaos, temptation or a lack of harmony around you. To see, feel and know clearly what exists, what is illusion and what is necessary for survival in all senses of the word. It is the color of pearlescent white, the color of infants before they ground in their body. It is what all should strive for. It is what you all miss.
Inner and outer. To be in a state of beauty with all that is, in all realms, physical, emotional and spiritual. The ability to create and maintain beauty. To be in a state of beauty is to be in harmony with all. To become a perfect mirror for all of God’s creations. It is two separate colors, silver and magenta.
To be fully thankful, grateful and one with the gift of life purpose and spirit. To be a reflection of the perfection of the creation of self and all. To live in and remain with the heart for all time. Joy is the color of gold.
The ability to Love and serve without judgment. To be able to fully understand and heart feel another’s situation without entering or assuming that cloak. The understanding that another has a chosen path and that we can only offer assistance and Love. We cannot complete another’s journey for them for that would be theft. Tenderness. Its colors are green and red.
Truth is clarity. Truth simply is light and Love. It is the wholeness of knowing. It is factual information that can stand and does stand alone, whether people know it or not, truth is. For example, the Divine is a supreme knowing. Whether anyone in this room or on this planet knows this matters not. That truth cannot be altered. Wisdom is the virtue of having the good sense to know and understand that truth. Truth is the color of silver, with tinges of pink and lilac.
Brother of Truth. Understanding the Divine plan, the unfoldment and each thing/being’s place within that plan. Ultimate respect for all because all is a reflection of the One, and we are One. The ability to comprehend the difference between believing, thinking and knowing. Knowing comes from the deepest core of your being, it is that part of you intimately connected with your higher self, your guides and God. It is the beauty of the elders, of those who have gone through the planes of twelve existences, those who have arrived at the end of the path and are ready for a new time. Wisdom is the dark color of claret.
Ability to feel and experience always and fully the wonders of creation, the Divine. The knowing that there is always more, more to learn, to experience, and to understand. To know that our understanding and experience of God is limited but the promise of further growth holds true. It is the innocence of the small child within, the sense of awe, the sense of wonder. It is the sense of understanding the magnificence of the universal plan, the unfoldment. It is the thrill, the expectation and joy at being, simply being, and enjoying the new miracles that unfold, always waiting for the next one. It is the relation of purity. It is the color of golden saffron.
The genuine ability to share all things, material, spiritual and emotional. Based in the true understanding that there is always enough for all to thrive and we are all richer in the joint expression of sharing. A heart-felt need to be generous. Knowing knowledge and gifts are never intended solely for one person. The vibration is green.
Twin of piety. Ability to be truly grateful for the many blessings bestowed upon each and all. Knowledge that alone we are rather incompetent but united with One we are All. Necessary for all works and sharing of service. Its color is red.
Your final virtue and blessing, grace is the quality of being a true and exact expression of Divine spirit and will. This is a state of beauty, of wholeness, of oneness. It is the final blessing and virtue, encompassing service and action. It is the color of pink.
The thirteen Blessings and Virtues are not simply “feel good” gifts, something to make us feel whole and pure, although they certainly accomplish that as well. They are the foundation upon which we build and conduct our daily lives.
