9 Invitations for Expansion
Part 1: Head
(Enneagram 5, 6, & 7)
The Enneagram is a tool that can help us identify the specific ways we have zeroed in on a small portion of reality and provides pathways for expanding our perspective. This helps us to connect more fully and deeply with others, ourselves, and the Divine. Here are just a few invitations for expansion.
Enneagram 5s – Connection
When you notice yourself mentally detaching, this is an invitation to reflect on what you gain & what you lose from detaching in this moment. Consider that the objectivity you value requires connection with the outside world via other people & perspectives.
Enneagram 6s – Quiet Confidence
When you notice yourself second-guessing a decision and seeking validation for your thinking, this is an invitation to honor your own inner-knowing. Notice that you trust yourself to determine who is trustworthy. Why not trust yourself to make a good decision?
Enneagram 7s – Presence
When you notice yourself mentally or physically leaving a situation in order to move on to the next exciting thing, this is an invitation to stay just a little longer in the present moment. Notice what you gain from staying. What might you have missed if you had left?
