  • Electrical Jakobs Ladder

    A Jakobs Ladder (or Jacob's Ladder - more formally: a high voltage traveling arc) is a device for producing a continuous train of large sparks that rise upwards.

     

    The spark gap is formed by two wires, approximately vertical but gradually diverging from each other towards the top in a narrow V shape.

     

    When high voltage is applied to the gap, a spark forms across the bottom of the wires where they are nearest each other, rapidly changing to an electric arc.

     

    The heated ionized air rises, carrying the current path with it. As the trail of ionization gets longer, it becomes more and more unstable, finally breaking. The voltage across the electrodes then rises and the spark re-forms at the bottom of the device.

     

    This cycle leads to an exotic-looking display of electrical arcs, often shown in films about mad scientists.

     

    Now you can use this physical device as a model for an energetic tool which, when switched on with your 'Clicker', takes you immediately out of your current space in a nonlinear direction into a new space with different Possibility for you or your team. Stay in contact with your Team, push the start button, let the next impulse lead you, and hang on for the ride!

     

    This works because the space determines what is possible.

  • How To Use Your Jakobs Ladder

    1

    NOTICE

    Notice that you are stuck, either as an individual or as a team. You may have a sense that something completely different from this is possible right now and you want to go there. Use that impulse to alert you to the Possibility of using your Jakobs Ladder.

     

    Before you use your Jakobs Ladder you do not have to already know where you want to go or how to go there. If you already know then it is not a new space.

     

    All you need is to notice that you are noticing the discomfort of being stuck.

     

    This meta-noticing triggers Step 2.

    2

    REMEMBER

    Remember that you are a Possibilitator.

     

    Declaring yourself to be a Possibilitator is an identity-shift experience.

     

    Before this painful moment reminded you, you may have forgotten your Possibilitator potentials.

     

    The pain of sensing your stuckness can trigger your impulse to remember to take on a Possibilitator's first position: Centered, Grounded, Bubbled, Gremlin at your side, Toolbelt on, Sword of Clarity (or Possibility Paintbrush) to hand, paying attention to your attention, ready for your next move.

     

    Your next move, if you choose it to be so, is to decide to use your Jakob's Ladder.

    3

    DECIDE

    A decision changes who you are.

     

    A full decision takes approximately 3 seconds after your Being decides to enter and reorder your 5 Bodies. Sometimes the 3 seconds is too long, as is often the case with implementing Jakobs Ladder. When there is not enough time to do it in an orderly fashion you can still do it in a disorderly fashion, meaning, decide and move first and let things (like your mind) reorder and catch up with your Being when they can. The mind is actually the slowest of the 5 Bodies.

     

    These instructions for using your Jakobs Ladder slow the procedure down enough that you can make it conscious. Once you have gone through the procedure a few times slowly and deliberately you build out your capacity for using your Jakobs Ladder. It is an excellent idea to practice Jakobs Ladder and the other Possibility Management energetic tools at your Possibility Team the same way, slowly, deliberately, step-by-step, repeatedly, with realtime feedback and coaching.

    4

    BE IN CONTACT

    Make sure your energetic threads of connection make contact with everyone in the space before you push your Jakobs Ladder 'start' button. The energetic threads either go from heart to heart or from center to center, not for control or safety or possession, but merely for contact.

     

    Whoever you are in contact with is who will make the shift with you from this space to the next space.

     

    Anyone you are not in contact with - for whatever reason - Gremlin reason or merely not noticing that you do not have contact with them - will be left behind in the old space. Assure that your Gremlin is on a short leash and assisting in this space shift and not feeding on the possibility of leaving someone behind. Tell your Gremlin to make sure you are connected with everyone and to report instantly back to you. This is the way to put your Gremlin to work and give him great jobs to do.

    5

    'TCHAK!'

    Push the start button on your Jakobs Ladder on your Toolbelt. The flash starts instantly, as in the video, and exits the current space under its own power. Ride the elevator 'up' while holding space for the whole Team.

     

    The word 'up' here does not relate to the pull of gravity. When navigating spaces there is no 'up'. Your Jakobs Ladder takes you in a nonlinear direction from your current space through the Gap In Space. This may be sideways, downwards, spiral, or space-jump, there is no significance in that.

     

    Who determines which way your Jakob Ladder takes you? 'I' consider this to be a very interesting question. On the one hand 'I' want the new space of Possibility to be determined by 'me' and 'my purposes and wishes'. 'I' want my Jakobs Ladder to take me and us to a new space of 'my' design. Sometimes 'I' think it works that way, but maybe it doesn't. It could be that where your Jakobs Ladder takes you is determined by ECCO (Earth Coincidence Control Office). If so, then if the new space turns out to be a space where 'I' wanted to go, then this simply indicates that 'I' am in resonance with ECCO (or 'I' am 'being resonated' be ECCO... At this point the conversation gets philosophical and conjectural... although 'I' still find it interesting...)

    6

    SLIDE

    As a spaceholder it helps to immediately let go of the current space by relaxing your attentive grip on the 8 points in the corners of the cube so it disassociates from the physical space. Then vanish the space's grounding cord with your Clicker. You are pullin the rug out from under the whole space and everyone in it without destroying the space itself.

     

    Use the space as a spaceship, a chamber with passengers, and use your intention to collectively bring everyone along for the roller-coaster ride. It can help to smile just a little so that when people feel the sudden dizziness and look at you they think you are having some kind of Fun. Slide... It's just a ride.

     

    Within 3 seconds of clicking your Clicker to turn on your Jakobs Ladder you will receive a 5 Body impulse to move (e.g. to stand up, walk, turn, sit down, lie down), to feel (anger, sadness, fear, or joy), to speak (to declare, to ask e.g. a dangerous or forbidden question, to distinguish, to take a stand...) as a way of creating either a pressure or a vacuum.

     

    The impulse does not come into your mind. It usually comes into more than one of your 5 Bodies at the same time. If you receive merely an idea in your mind this is probably not the impulse from your Jakobs Ladder.

     

    When the impulse comes, let it move you before you start thinking about reasons, arguments, explanations, etc. The movement need not be anything huge. The ride up Jakobs Ladder is like a rocket taking off, and as the Possibilitator, Inner Permaculturist, Edgeworker, Bridgebuilder, Riftwalker, Trainer, shift agent... it is simply your job to go first. Re-make your Grounding Cord with your Clicker to serve as a stake in the ground in the new space, the new context, the new view. Take a deep breath.

    7

    BUILD MASS

    The first few seconds going up and out the top of the old space through your Jakobs Ladder are crucial because that is when people's fear is most intense (including yours) about what is happening now and what might happen next.

     

    New ideas at first seem insane, impossible, invisible, crazy, even dangerous. Make sure your impulse to move is not in reality dangerous. Using your Jakobs Ladder is not about 'magical thinking' where 'anything is possible'. Possibility Management has nothing to do with magical thinking.

     

    Also make sure you stay in contact with every last soul in your Team. Fur sure one or two fringe people will be dragging their feet, holding onto sandbags to stay back in the familiar space. You (...your Gremlin) may have the urge to shoot ahead and explore the new space without everyone on board, but that would be a mistake.

     

    Instead, stay particularly connected with the 'last guys'. Do not shun or abandon them. Take the time to include them. If they eventually discover and experience the value of the new space they will be some of your strongest supporters.

     

    To 'build mass' in the new territory simply means to explain the rules of engagement in the new circumstances and set up camp as usual. Explain anything that is not clear about how things go here. Inhabit the new space in every way. This changes the new space from a weird concept into the new ordinary. Small, calm, ordinary interactions stabilize the new space.

    8

    PLAY FULL OUT

    Do not focus on proving anything to others in the old spaces about the value of the new space. Simply play full out in the new space. Focusing on the others can suck you back into the old space. It is important to keep your Gremlin on a short leash and stop him from doing "I told you so!" or play superior / inferior or right / wrong. Jakobs Ladder is so helpful in setting the context and building the new gameworlds that make the existing gameworlds irrelevant. It is wise to remember that next spaces are all around you, each with their own Possibilities which at any moment may become necessary to shift into. Try to not get attached to any particular space. You are a space navigator serving your Bright Principles and your Archetypal Lineage, not your Box or Ego or Gremlin.

    9

    KEEP NOTICING

    There is a risk and a time-delay if you do not live in the presence of the distinction that you are a 'Possibilitator' with a full set of tools on your Possibilitator Toolbelt.

     

    The risk is that you might mistakenly think you are an ordinary human being limited to the Possibilities available in Standard Human Intelligence Thoughtware.

     

    What a dreadful thing that would be!

     

    The time-delay needed for your identity shift from 'Jane Smith' to 'Possibilitator Jane Smith' while you clip on your Possibilitator Toolbelt and press the proper Clicker button to ignite your Jakobs Ladder (TCHAK!) may use up the entire small NOW time doorway that was available for bringing your Team nonlinearly up the Jakobs Ladder into a new space of Possibility. When a doorway closes you may never find it again.

     

    No one can choose and sustain your identity for you.

     

    No one can stop you from maintaining your Possibilitator identity.

     

    By the way, you do not have to wear your Possibilitator identity on your coat like a Sheriff's badge... you could keep it as a secret identity.

  • Experiments

    EXPERIMENT JAKOBSLA.01: PRACTICE AT YOUR POSSIBILITY TEAM

    Read these Jakobs Ladder instructions out loud at your next Possibility Team. Read them slowly, with full discussion, all questions asked and answered. Then get into groups of 4 and have two people start a Box to Box 'I'm right, you're wrong' conversation including the third person as the Possibilitator and the fourth person as the Possibilitator's Coach. At a moment chosen by the Possibilitator, the Possibilitator ignites their Jakobs Ladder: 'Tchak!' (which is an energetic noise, not made with the mouth or fingers or anything). Then for a minute or two the Possibilitator builds mass in the new space with everyone. The Coach decides when that is enough for now, stops the EXPERIMENT, and asks for feedback and coaching for the Possibilitator who write notes in the Beep! Book. Rotate jobs. Go again. Do this until each person has had 3 times to practice using their Jakobs Ladder.

     

     

    EXPERIMENT JAKOBSLA.02: PRACTICE IN A ROLE-PLAYED INCIDENT OR SITUATION

    This EXPERIMENT is the same as JAKOBSLA.01 except that the situation is role-played by everyone enacting the circumstances and characters which the Possiblitator indicates might in ordinary life hook them, button-push, trigger them, or resonate with one of their traumas. Give the Possibilitator a little more time to follow the impulses that come and build mass in the new space where the Jakobs Ladder brought them. And make sure they go slowly and are clear about all the steps they are taking. Give them clear feedback about any step they miss, and coaching for how to implement the step more clearly next time.

     

     

    EXPERIMENT JAKOBSLA.03: JAKOBS LADDER YOURSELF INTO A NEW SPACE

    After you feel more comfortable with having a Jakobs Ladder in your Toolbelt which you can turn on any time you want, and also after you have helped some other people practice with their Jakobs Ladder and have given them some feedback and coaching for using it more effectively, then do this EXPERIMENT. Arrange to have 30 minutes alone, either alone outdoors in nature somewhere, or alone in an area with other people going about the daily business of their lives aren't likely to interrupt you. Have your Beep! Book with you. Title a page: JAKOBS LADDER MYSELF. Then take a deep breath and check-in with yourself. What is alive in each of your 5 Bodies. Make a couple notes for each body. At some point in your check-in get the sense of how stuck you are in your current condition. You have given the same check-in for months now. Something somewhere is stuck. Let the sense of the stuckness push the Jakobs Ladder 'start' button on your Clicker: 'Tchak!'. Let go of the current space. You have pulled the rug out from under yourself. Let the next impulse in your 5 Bodies move you into a new space. You can either move to a new physical location, or stay where you are and notice what changes in your relationship to your surroundings. Make new notes about the space your Jakobs Ladder brought you to. See if there are any new Bright Principles or Shadow Principles at work in this space. Be sure to note the sensations of the Zzzzzzzaaaappp! of the Jakobs Ladder elevator sensations working. Do this EXPERIMENT five times in the next week or so.

     

     

    EXPERIMENT JAKOBSLA.00: JAKOBS LADDER A RELATIONSHIP SPACE

    The next time you are in a conversation or interaction with someone you see relatively often, be it a colleague, a neighbor, or a family member (this also works with children), use your Jakobs Ladder when you start to notice how the context, rules, Possibilities are being limited by the space. If you are using family as a Gremlin-feeding grounds (something we suggest you stop immediately and forever...) your own hooks and buttons will be raw and hair-triggered, so pay very careful attention that this EXPERIMENT does not shift into a Gremlin feeding frenzy. For this EXPERIMENT, hold the new space for at least 5 minutes but no longer than 10 minutes, and then exit the space with all 5 Bodies yourself but do not take the space with you when you go. Leave it behind as a gift for the other person (or persons) to play with, even it they don't know what it is or how you made it, even if it only lasts for a few seconds after you leave before they navigate it back to an ordinary space. Consider making it your purpose to create and leave extraordinary space-gifts with people even if they can never thank you for it. Give each of these spaces you create with the help of your Jakobs Ladder a name according to the valuable qualities it offers, such as: Tender Space, Acceptance Space, Wonder Space, Hilarious Space, Connection Space, etc. Write the space names in your Beep! Book and the dates and persons you made them for.

     

     

    EXPERIMENT JAKOBSLA.00: JAKOBS LADDER A MEETING SPACE

    So often meeting spaces are restricted to the Possibility they have always had. We come together for many reasons, but one reason is to access and decide to implement new Possibility. The next time you attend - or are the spaceholder for - a Possibility meeting be ready to use your Jakobs Ladder. Do not tell anyone what you will be practicing. Simply pay close attention to when a slump in options is encountered, when the energy gets confused or tight, when people start getting bored, or when hopelessness or Gremlin restlessness arise. Then follow the procedure: be in contact with everyone, push the start button on your Jakobs Ladder 'Tchak!', let the impulses move you, and build out the new space by indicating what people could notice. In the case of a meeting the way to invite others to follow your impulses is to make proposals. For example, "I propose that we all line up according to the size of our Gremlins, largest at that end of the line, smallest at this end of the line." And then stand up and move the moment your proposal starts being accepted. Or, "I propose that we empower the four Archetypal Lineages by congregating for a moment in the four corners of the room. Guardians over there, Intimacy Navigator / Village Weavers there, Evolutionaries / Healing Circle there, and Gameworld Builders over here." Or, "There is a lot of energy in this space but it is not focused so that we can use it. I propose that anyone who feels mostly angry right now stand up over there. Anyone feeling mostly scared right now please stand over there. Anyone feelings mostly sad right now please stand together over there. Anyone feeling mostly glad right now please stand in that area. And anyone feeling mostly numb right now, you go outside and take a 15 minute break to get back into your body so you can be present here. In the meantime we will tap the energy and information of the feelings archetypes to move this meeting forward." And so on. Did we mention that Jakobs Ladder makes gateways to High Level Fun?
