So where do you begin? The way I see any particular state of being is in terms of an Eco-system. Researchers have developed many theories around making personal change and transformation. We will not go into detail about these today though.
What I will say is that those researchers have developed models of change. The one that really stands out for me is Eco-systems theory.
The theory is taken from ecology and applied to the person. Each of us interacts within our own Eco-system. Each Eco-system is multi-layered and consists of ourselves ( state of health, thoughts, emotions and behaviours etc).
Then other layers include, our social circle (friends, family etc). Moving up to the place in which interaction occurs within our social layer. Theses areas are known as the micro system.
Other layers include the wider structures and institutions of our communities. And the wider structures and institutions of wider society.
I know this sounds a bit complex. However I see that we have potential for more than one Eco-system. In our minds we can see other desired States that we would like to be interacting within.
We can see these other Eco-systems but we have not managed to manifest them into our reality. When one Eco-system comes in close proximity to another this creates a tension known in ecology as an Eco-tone.
In our own Eco-system this creates a tension within ourselves. In my next post I will be explaining how we can begin to manifest the desired state by looking at how we deal with the Eco-tone.
