Co-Creation Wheel of Twelve

We have seen this Wheel of Co-Creation, and now we can look for it in the patterns shown by Foster Gamble in his documentary called THRIVE.

Here he links to the sectors showing problems, challenges and opportunities for us to act, to engage in change or transformation.

And here he shows us about the code:

They say:
"The code may be our most powerful key to thriving.
It is a pattern in nature that exists everywhere from atoms to galaxies. It's called a "torus." You can see it in a seed, a fruit, a hurricane, even the electromagnetic field around a person or the earth.  It's how life sustains and evolves itself, and it serves as a universal template for sustainability in all our systems.
Among other things, the code shows us how to access clean, abundant energy, expand our consciousness, restore health and balance to the planet and live sustainably."

Art of Choosing with too many choices

Have you seen Sheena Iyengar on She has a great talk called "How to make choosing easier." At this date there are over 402,000 views of her TED-talk.

She concludes, "...four techniques for mitigating the problem of choice overload -- cut -- get rid of the extraneous alternatives; concretize -- make it real; categorize -- we can handle more categories, less choices; condition for complexity. All of these techniques... are designed to help you manage your choices -- better for you, you can use them on yourself, better for the people that you are serving. Because I believe that the key to getting the most from choice is to be choosy about choosing. And the more we're able to be choosy about choosing the better we will be able to practice the art of choosing."

Her research is applicable to the NTS (Nine Term Symbol, enneagram) because it demonstrates that people need to visualize in order to actualize choices. Her research shows that the "choice maker" may understand the products he or she is offering but that the chooser likely does not. The choice maker must give the chooser a chance to see the big picture.

Mountain Climb mapped on the NTS (enneagram of process)

Here is the start of a mountain climb as seen on the enneagram or the NTS. (A Nine Term Symbol, an "NTS", is also referred to as an enneagram.)

This comes from a discussion with one of our avid readers, Eric Plantenberg (, who is an amazing mountain climber and leader of the best abundance & freedom seminars we have ever seen.

For those who already know this language, this symbol is a great starting point to dialogue about the process.
