Trait 21 < Trait 51 > Trait 42

Life Work Theme of: Penetration

Purpose fulfilled through Mind

This Trait is part of the Strength of Competitiveness, Needing to be First, linking willpower (Gate 51) with Identity & Direction (Trait 25).  Trait 51 is part of the Individual (Centering) Circuit with the keynote of empowerment.

Trait 51, the Trait of Initiation and Shock, is the energy for Individual initiative. Backed by the ego's will and courage, it embodies the power to compete, driving us to be one step ahead of everybody, and to risk going where no one else has gone in order to find or create a place for ourselves. We are designed to withstand shock and to shock others, to move them out of the complacency of their safe cocoons and direct them toward personal transcendence and self love. Love for life itself, and the constant competition that comes with mastering the material world, arouses and empowers us. In opposition to the courage and will power that energizes us, however, is a potential for foolhardiness that endangers our vulnerable hearts, both physically and spiritually.

The secret to maintaining our heart's health is to center ourselves by attuning to our Decision-Making Strategy, and sense within when we have the will to engage in battle, and when we don't. This guidance will allow us to adapt to the nature of any shock or disorder confronting us, and give our heart the rest it needs in order to recuperate from our engagement with the world. Without Trait 25 we may find ourselves seeking or looking to the realm of spirit for guidance or direction.
