The fifth step of process is UNDERSTANDING. With understanding, there is no limitation between you and the energy. This is contrary to how most people view understanding. Most people limit their interaction so that they can gain “understanding.” It is only by having acceptance and tolerance of the sunflower as you watch it grow and go through its natural cycle that you gain understanding of the sunflower in its entirety. Or if you have chosen to cut the sunflower and take it home, it is only by acceptance and tolerance that you will gain understanding of yourself and the sunflower in that cycle.
The fourth step of process is DETERMINATION. Here, the impact has been determined and the attraction will be seen at that moment as either positive or negative. You will see the impact as creative or destructive and you will determine what to do with it. In our example, you see the form of the sunflower and determine that it is very beautiful where it grows and so choose not to cut it. You could have also decided that its pollen aggravated your hay fever and moved away from it. Or you could have decided to cut the sunflower and take it home to eat the sunflower seeds.
However, if at the point of determination, you do not have acceptance and tolerance of the action or object, if you get into judgments or comparisons, etc., you will create limitations and block the next step
All life is energy with its own vibration signature. This is also true of all communication.
Bat teaches us how to see sound with our eyes and helps us to see the energy vibrations of people and all life. Bat also carries thought forms sent and received and is the keeper and communicator of the secrets of the transformation of substance.
“Man is a genius when he is dreaming.”

The third step of process is FORM. This is the point of impact. The substance on which you are focused is given definition and purpose. By continuing to focus, you see that the substance you are focusing on is actually a flower called a sunflower.
We usually miss the Focus and Substance steps and only experience the form, the solidity, the matter of what attracts us. If we “slow” down and break down the steps, we can catch our pattern of attraction and change it, if necessary.
The second step of process is SUBSTANCE. Substance means your attention is focused, and you notice the object’s appearance within space. At this step, there is no definition, give-away, or purpose. The object can be used for many reasons or purposes. In our example, it has no definition or purpose. It is just substance.
The first step is FOCUS. Whenever you bring your attention to an attraction, that attraction becomes your focus. This actually begins the law of attraction. Imagine walking through a meadow at the edge of a forest with a friend. As you are walking, you notice a small yellow flower in the sea of tall grass. About the same time, your friend notices a white swan swimming at the edge of the lake up ahead. Each one of you were attracted to two different things, bringing your attention to it, which you then focus on.
Any process of experience can be broken down into Seven Steps. In other words, whenever and wherever an energy is birthed into existence, it will go through these Seven Steps. I include this here for a couple of reasons. First, these Seven Steps can be used in practical applications throughout Life to bring greater understanding to any process. Second, this is a valuable tool to deepen your understanding of how the Great Spirit organizes the universe.
The Seven Steps will be taught individually. At the end of the series will be a test to see if the steps are in their proper placement.
Here is a simple exercise to help you focus your attention. It will also give you an idea of how unfocused and distracted your energy is. Take the tip of your middle finger (wind) of your right hand and place it over the top of the index finger (fire) of your right hand. With your fingers in this configuration, tap the top of the wrist of your left hand with your right thumb. Every time you get distracted, your mind wanders, or your attention is not focused on the now and what you are doing, tap yourself.
You may find, when you first start doing this, your wrist may become very sore within a day. If you are consistent with tapping your wrist every time your mind wanders from what you are doing in the moment, it will help you to focus your attention much better.
“All power is hidden behind the veil of innocence and illusion. Succumb to illusion and you will become ill with self-importance. Accept innocence and step into the Child Spirit Shield, into the center of your own essence. Keep your attention there and do not be distracted, for this is the moment of power. In your left hand, hold experience and the maturity to be able to integrate that experience. In your right hand, hold immediacy and action. Taking responsibility holds the hands together. Power will give you the gift of wisdom through ‘catching minimal chance’. This is the Warrior’s Act of Power and worthy of your Attention.” ~ SwiftDeer
