I love patterns. They fascinate me. During my quest for self-improvement and for creating a system to help myself (and others) to actually make real change, I found a pattern that kept cropping up. Then one day when I was meditating, it came to me. Things come in threes. The Atomic Triad was born!
Over the last 30 years of studying self-improvement material I came across the concept of be, do and have. If you’ve spent any time looking at self-improvement material I’m sure that you’ll probably come across it before as well. You must first be before you can do, and you must do before you can have. In other words, to Have the things you want, you must Do certain things, and in order to Do those things you must first Be the kind of person that can do it. The real essence, the foundation of who you are will determine what you can do. Only when that foundation is strong, can you build the framework (the Doing) that will manifest your desires. Foundation, Framework, Manifestation.
Next, when I was working on creating life balance, I asked the question what does it mean to have life balance? Well, you have to start by working on yourself, then your family & friends, and lastly on your material possessions. In other words, you really have to have a strong foundation of self-mastery. With that in place, you can really have great relationships, the true blessings in life, with which to share the bounty of your material possessions. Foundation, Framework, Manifestation.
Hmm.. Well, let’s break down what it takes to have true self-mastery, I thought. Well, we need to work on our Spiritual life, feed our mind, and have a healthy body. So a solid foundation of spirit. A strong framework of ideas and intellect. And the manifestation of a strong physical nature… Foundation, Framework, Manifestation.
The real epiphany came while sitting in church. And I’ll admit.. I was bored, and not really listening to the sermon. This Life Triad, which I now call it, was filling my thoughts. Suddenly I had the thought of the three words I use here. Foundation, Framework, and Manifestation. I realized the in Christianity you have the Holy Trinity. God, as the Foundation, the Holy Spirit as the Framework, and the Son as the Manifestation. God is the foundation of all faith and the basis of everything. The Holy Spirit was the framework for bringing that foundation to us. And the Son was the literal manifestation of God in the physical world. It all made sense.
For everything there is a foundational piece, there is a way it gets connected together and built, and then there is the manifestation of it in one form or another. The Atomic Triad: Foundation, Framework, and Manifestation.
If you want to understand the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.Nikola Tesla
The Tesla quote above I didn’t find until all of this had come together, but it ties in exactly with everything else I have seen. Energy is the foundation of everything, the frequency is the energy moving in a framework, and the vibration is the manifestation of that frequency. It all fits! Thus the Atomic Triad was born.
The more I have been working with concepts over the years, this pattern has help out. Working with businesses to move to the next level? Foundation, Framework, Manifestation. Helping people overcome stagnation in their job or businesses? Foundation, Framework, Manifestation. Getting myself out of a rut and build healthy habits? Foundation, Framework, Manifestation. The Atomic Triad shows itself again, and again.
You can get another look at this concept in my podcast episode #2. Or see how it is the basis of The Life Triad.
As you will see in my upcoming book, this pattern keeps showing up over and over again. I am so excited to share this with you! I hope it helps you as much as it has me.
