The term osmosis is commonly used to describe the gradual or unconscious assimilation of ideas and knowledge. For many years, I believed that this concept could be applied to learning and expanding one’s understanding of New Equations. I thought that merely being in the presence of the cofounders and leaders of New Equations would naturally lead to the absorption of their wisdom and knowledge.
However, an eye-opening experience in early March 2022 during a New Equations group training in Oslo, Norway, challenged this belief.
During this training, we focused on the Soultype 1 Spiritual Portal, with the guidance of Soultype Instructor Siv Roland. As we worked one-on-one to expand our Soultype 1 Spiritual Portals, one of the newer students, who had spent considerable time with the cofounders and other leaders, worked with me. To my surprise, I did not experience the anticipated knowledge infusion. Instead, I only felt her own Soultype energy coming through during the training.
Fast-forward to October 2022, when the same group reconvened for more workshops and training, this time centered around expanding Soultype 8. A notable change occurred—the new student, who had been dedicated to extensive New Equations training during the seven months between the two events, showed remarkable progress. When she worked with me on expanding Soultype 8, I felt genuine support for my Spiritual Portal 8 without experiencing the influence of her own Soultype energy.
This realization was a pivotal moment for me, as I understood that osmosis does not apply to learning New Equations. Instead, expansion requires dedicated training. My personal story highlights that expanding in New Equations is a choice—a conscious decision to engage in rigorous training and practice to achieve spiritual growth, soul wisdom, and understanding.
In conclusion, the fallacy of osmosis in learning New Equations illustrates the importance of active dedication and commitment to training, rather than relying on passive absorption of knowledge. My transformative experiences in Oslo made it possible for me to connect with a deeper insight into the true essence of New Equations—this path is a journey of intention and openness to growth.
