The Triqueta
An ancient Celtic symbol, the triquetra is considered one of the oldest; dating back to as early as 500 BC when it was used to symbolize the triple goddess (maiden-mother-crone). Over the centuries it has become the symbol for the Holy Trinity among Christians in Ireland. The symbol is often used to represent the 3 fundamental elements – air, water, and earth or the infinite cycle of life.
It is also known as a rune of protection.



The Triangle

Root Chakra

When ONE enters TWO, THREE is born.
When father enters mother, a child is created.
Father, Holy Spirit and Child - the holy trinity.
We are the connection between Father Sun and Mother Earth.

The Tetrahedron
The Tetrahedron, one of the Platonic Solids, representing the element of fire, also is a symbol for the Root Chakra

Radius Three

The radius of conciousness

All of my organs


In the beginning there is "I", a point of light within the vacuum.
The ultimate observer that observes the observer, eternally present, never changing.


(1) - I breathe in, lifting my head towards the heavens. --- "I".
One, Father, the Sun, the Big Bang, the source of "Every Thing", the plus pole.

(2) - I breathe out slowly, lowering my head towards my lap. --- "AM".
Two, Mother, Amma, Matter, Womb. the core of the earth, the minus pole.

(3) I breathe in, lifting my head towards the horizon. --- "That" (I AM).

(pause for zero) I breathe out slowly.
the Child, the Buddha, the middle. the synthesis, the HERE and NOW.

In some traditions, the Third Initiation is understood to be the first true Initiation because it is not until this Confirmation arrives that a person becomes stable in their purpose of seeking the Divine. Confirmation is another gift of Grace that is given as a kind of reward to the recipient. It is evident from their names that these Initiations are taken from the Christian tradition. Their mystery can be further understood through the original layout of the Christian church. The Birth represents the entry into the church itself, the body of the higher presence. The Baptism is always made at the font, which is usually located at the back of the church, between the entrance and the congregation and represents the introduction of the child as a member of the church. During Christian confirmation, a young person is officially initiated as a member of the congregation, whose arena is the main body of the church itself. Confirmation gives the young church member their first taste of a much higher Initiation — that of the Holy Communion.

Simply by heartfelt invocation, you can now call upon Grace.

In the list of the Nine Initiations above, you can see that they are laid out in threes. This is one of the great mysteries of Initiation, which is based upon final immersion into the Holy Trinity. At each of the three levels, the seeker enters into deeper communion with the triple nature of the trinity. Thus at the Third Initiation the seeker has a taste of the Sixth Initiation, and very faintly detects the echo of the Ninth Initiation. So it is with each of the other levels.

Confirmation is actually a fairly high vibratory Initiation. It denotes having reached a stable frequency in which your commitment has been tested and found strong and your lower nature has shown itself to be capable of some degree of sacrifice. At this level, the mystery of sacrifice is understood to be the deepest core of Initiation itself. Here at Confirmation you will grasp the certainty of your final goal in which your lower nature will be sacrificed to your higher. After the Third Initiation it is no longer possible for you to leave the path of Initiation, even though you will inevitably still stray from it at times. This is a level of frequency in which you become used to more regular periods of contact with the higher vehicles. The pathway between the causal body and the mental body is well trodden, which means that simply by heartfelt invocation, you can now call upon Grace.

Enneagram Type 3 - The Performer

Threes are feeling-based types, but they channel their emotional energy into getting things done. They take the initiative and work hard to accomplish their goals. They are highly adaptable, and they excel at "feeling out" and meeting the expectations of others when that will lead them to success. They like to stay active and on the go, so it's hard to stop or slow down. Their focus on keeping up their image and achieving results can get in the way of personal needs and health. 

American business is a particularly strong Three culture where performers get a lot of positive reinforcement for being productive and efficient. A danger for Threes is concentrating on external praise or material rewards while losing contact with who they are inside. It's difficult for them to step out of their roles, feel their own feelings, and decide for themselves what is important.

Strengths: Successful, energetic, high achiever

Problems: Over worked, impatient, competitive

Speaking style: Enthusiastic, motivating themselves and others for success

Lower emotional habit: Vanity, based on keeping up a good image and always being successful

Higher emotion: Truthfulness, which is the willingness to go beyond appearances and develop personal authenticity

Archetypal challenge: To let go of image and social persona and find one's inner essence

Psychological defenses: Threes use the defense mechanism of identification to avoid failure and maintain a self image of being "successful." (Identification is a kind of pervasive role-playing and losing oneself in image).

Somatic patterns: As feeling types who put everything into productivity and results, Threes can accrue a lot of tension around their chest and heart. They are the original "Type A's" and need to watch out for early heart attacks or a weakened immune system. Underneath a strong layer of chest tension there is usually deep sadness from loss of contact with the inner self.
