Life Quadrants

BY SHEPHERD HOODWIN

This is the one item on my chart I don't cover in my book. I originally heard about it from JP Van Hulle's channeling. I had dropped it from my chart because I didn't think it was that important, but restored it after my books came out because some scholar clients kept asking for it.

It's simple: in any group, there are four basic functions, and we
specialize in one in each lifetime, although we can do the others also:

Love position initiates. "Let's go to a movie!" for example.

Knowledge position provides information to the group (scholars don't always do this within groups). "I know where a good movie is playing and how to get there."

Power position powers the group to take action. "C'mon everyone, let's get in the car."

Support position mediates and helps: "I'll get popcorn."

For the record, the word "quadrant" refers only to the quarter, or the part. The word "quadrate," found in Yarbro, refers to a whole that contains four parts.

JP and Jose have used these same four terms, I believe, to refer to the positions in groupings of four specific people who have agreed to work together over several lifetimes on a project. It can be expanded: a fifth person, for example, would have the "eccentric" position. I think the sixth person occupies the "compassion" position, and so on, until you get the 12 positions of the support circle.
