The 12 Principles of a 5th Place

1. Listen to hear

At 5th Place we have a different take on what it means to listen and why we listen. We listen to hear, not to respond or to understand.

2. At my core I am perfect

At my core I am perfect. Beautiful, complete, flawless, whole, intact, just right, great, wonderful. Perfect!

3. It’s always about me

It's always about me is about the opportunity to take responsibility for what I am feeling in the moment, without blaming, shaming, finding fault on the outside and with the other.

4. It starts with me

We have a desire to make the world a better place. How we do that starts with you. If you make your inner world a better place, you will make your outer world a better place too. It starts with me.

5. I am because I feel

Because we feel, we remember, because we remember, we have a history, because we have a history we have an identity. I am because I feel.

6. Heal the hole to make me whole

Scars from past experiences can feel like holes in the fabric of our being. By attending to these holes and clearing the feelings associated with them we become whole again. Heal the hole to make me whole.

7. Hook me to heal me

Each time we get hooked (or triggered, as it is also known) it’s an opportunity for us to look at the past experience, attend to the hurt and reveal the gift thereby healing in the process. Hook me to heal me.

8. It’s never about me

If you upset, anger, or hook (trigger) someone else and you did not mean to — it’s not about you. It’s about them. If you can stay centred and not react to their response you will be doing them a huge favour and assisting them to heal their emotional holes. It's never about me.

9. Accept and say “yes”

The only way to find out what life wishes to offer us, to help us grow and heal, is to Accept and say “yes”. Accept and say “yes”.

10. Take the step that’s in front of me

When life feels overwhelming and there’s too much on the go, if you are not sure what to do or where to start then take the step that is in front of you. Do what is right here, right now. Take The Step That’s In Front Of Me.

11. Offer, don’t give

When we are tempted to give solutions to others without asking if they want our assistance - we assume they are helpless, that they need rescuing. If we can stop and offer our help, we acknowledge them as capable and resourceful beings who can choose to accept or not. Offer, don't give.

12. Accept what is

If we just pause and accept what we cannot change, what we have no control over, then maybe we will see the gift, the opportunity, the "it was meant to be this way" realisation. Accept what is.
