For Gene Keys Associates
The purpose of this internal document is to outline a simple set of values, rooted in the highest principles of the Gene Keys, to act as guidelines for our Gene Keys Associates. We refer to a Gene Keys Associate as anyone who works with the Gene Keys on a paid or voluntary basis, and who therefore represents the Gene Keys brand. We are each invited to follow and embody these guidelines to the very best of our ability, both in our private and our professional life. Thus we aim to work together towards greater self-honesty, forgiveness and care, fostering a unified spirit of reverence for all beings and their various stages of transformation. This is how we look out for each other, creating a safe environment for the Gene Keys to thrive.
The Fine Art of Equilibrium
In all of our communications and approaches to decision-making, we strive to balance the following:
- Listening and Sharing
- Freedom and Boundaries
- Self-care and Service
- Honesty and Kindness
- Mystical knowledge and Grounded Realism
I intend to keep my heart and mind as open and inclusive as possible. I wish to grow and learn from all my interactions, even uncomfortable or challenging ones.
2. Frequency and Tone
I make every effort to share with others in a respectful and empathic manner. I acknowledge when my own world-view is temporarily influenced by fear or self-limiting thoughts.
3. Respectful Feedback
I communicate with others in a way that I myself would wish for. I am willing to listen to constructive feedback and work with it.
4. Honesty and Transparency
I am fully committed to becoming aware of and working with my own shadow material. I recognise that every relational issue I face has a secret higher purpose and holds some deep and valuable lesson for me. I courageously share what’s on my mind and heart while holding the intention of doing no harm.
I hold myself and others accountable to the agreements we make, and when there’s been confusion, I engage in communications that increase clarity and a shared sense of purpose for all involved.
I am committed to the expansion of human consciousness and my own personal growth. I work to recognise and change the limiting attitudes and behaviours that I’ve learned over time. I reach out for help when I need it.
6. Sensitivity and Synchronicity
When I have a need to share something with someone, I take responsibility for choosing the right environment and timing for the communication. I trust in the greater good that will come from this sensitive approach.
7. Openness and Diversity
I acknowledge that open communication and dialogue within this community is invited . I am committed to exploring new paradigms for culture and civilisation and I thus agree to stretch my parameters, keeping my heart and mind open, in order to create a safe haven for all beings, languages and expressions of the One Truth.
8. Peace and Conflict
I understand that disagreements are stepping stones towards a healthy evolving community. I make every effort to resolve conflicts when they arise. When I’m not able to do this on my own, I reach out for support, facilitation or mediation.
9. Intimacy and Gentleness
I commit to the great task of returning non-love with love. I work alongside others to co-create a feeling of deep safety that allows for all feelings to be felt and embraced.
10. Repair and Patience
I acknowledge when my words or actions have hurt others and I offer heartfelt apologies when appropriate. I trust in the natural process of healing and reconciliation, without placing any unfair expectations on others.
When more than apologies are needed, I sincerely ask what is needed by the other to repair what’s been broken. I take their feedback to heart and make concrete changes to my behaviour in order to improve our relationship and re-build lost trust.
Embodying the Gene Keys
By embodying the spirit of the above Guidelines, I honour the essence of the Gene Keys teachings – to help us transform the challenging moments in relationships into opportunities for greater intimacy and growth. In doing so, may we all co-create a new yardstick for humanity – a future based on Individual Virtue, nourished by Communal Care and aiming at nothing less than Global Spiritual Realisation.
These guidelines have been based on themes more deeply explored in the book and on-line course ‘Walking a Fine Line’ by Rosy Aronson
