It seems incredible that people forget Step Zero, which is why I deliberately do not title my book the "12 Steps" to Sirius*JoY - even though that is the truth. There are actually 12 steps to the architecture of incarnation. But the first step is invisible, and almost a secret - and indeed it is - Step0 is the state of awareness that holds secrets, themselves!
Step0 is quite simply, time and space. If you understand quantum mechanics, you know time and space are actually the same "thing" in consciousness. If a soul wants to manifest a thought into a thing, they must first "hold time and space" to place the creation within it.
In the myth of creation, first there was darkness and there there was light. That's basically the nature of step zero to step one, and describes the first two Steps to Sirius*Joy. One must have-not, and then consider having. This is the separation from God to matter, or the Big Bang to human life. First there was nothing, then there was everything. We went from "zero" to "a hundred" in the blink of an eye. The power of "on" and "off" we will call "Step Zero' in this dialogue.
Once a creation has begun, it grows inside this time and space. Step0 then becomes the defining edge, or boundary of the creation. Thus, Step0 rules one's limits, one's boundaries, and by its nature in circular consciousness, one will define the value of what is contained within the boundary BY the boundary.
For example a sub-division of housing with a TALL fence and shiny gate protecting it must be expensive real estate, but a neighborhood with no security guard is considered a "poor" neighborhood. Fences make good neighbors, and Zeros (acting as big fences) will make mortgage rates rise higher, literally. The bigger the obstacle to achieve the goal, the greater its value. Thus, the stronger the Step0, the better payoff or yield from the manifestation.
What's truly beautiful about Zero is its glyph-symbol, also known as a circle. Whats absolutely incredible about "the 11 Steps to Sirius*JoY" is they can be interpreted in every dimension and fit together quite nicely. The properties of an ever-lasting circle are the same properties of a boundary in life. Think of the circle as the boundary itself, that surrounds what's inside with protection.
In the dimension of mathematics, the conscious power of zero is also clear as day. A zero alone can represent nothing, or the potential for everything. Add a "2" next to a zero, and you have twenty. Zero holds the potential for unlimited possibilities, or can represent nothingness, altogether. Put simply, Zero is the power of God in a circle, forever and ever. It is life on the inside, and death on the outside. It is yin and yang, but separated by a thought.
In human consciousness, Step0 plays out the role of one's personal limits. The "idea" that we must stop is truly a condition of human reality, and a quality not found with God or the absolute. Souls know no limits in heaven. Thus, it took centuries for humans to learn how to 'stop'. It also took cultures centuries to come up with the digit for "zero", or use a placeholder in mathematics. Thus, zero may seem empty, but it is profound. It is the ability to take nothing and make it into something, and truth of that human quality is self-evident in the nature of the number and conscious dimension of 'zero.'
In human behavior, the ability to restrict or limit oneself is truly the mark of intelligence and/or enlightenment. On the mundane level, step0 provides shelter, food by taking of an animal or plant's life, or refrains from sex to prevent pregnancy. Humans spent centuries learning the simplest expression of zero consciousness. To this day, every squabble over property, control, or politics comes down to a "step0" line that has been crossed. Even though these conflicts cause the lives of millions, they represent the most primitive use of zero in human consciousness. The fact that "modern" humans must take time and space to protect their very survival illustrates that humans have not mastered even the most primitive definitions of zero-consciousness.
In manifesting reality, every single mOMent must be defined with a limit or edge. This is one of the laws of relativity. You can not have "two" without having a "space" in between, or the zero. If a person does not define their edge, somebody else's edge will define yours for you; that's relativity.
Thus, if a person does not "protect" their interests with a pre-determined boundary, somebody else can trample all over one's prized possessions. This will happen automatically in human awareness. All energy in reality seeks equality (step6) unless there is a boundary that prevents it from happening (step0).
Pluto is the ruling agent of zero. It is the final boundary between our solar system and the Milky Way. It defines "humans" from other systems. People born under the sun sign Scorpio are step0 personalities. They live their lives defining boundaries, or crossing them. (When you rule a state of awareness, you feel you have the right to play by your own rules) Thus Scorpios have a reputation for being "players" and "guardians" both. Thus, the black and white nature of Scorpio - one hundred or a zero, you pick.
Because of the nature of boundary consciousness itself (you can not have one side without including the other), wherever a person is an idiot with boundaries, they automatically define boundaries in that place for the whole world. That's because when they "bump" into a blind boundary spot - they define both sides of the line. The perpetrator defines the victim. The cause defines the effect. This is the nature of conscious relativity, and the state of zero.
So, wherever YOU are dumb with personal boundaries also happens to be the same mark of where you protect others in society. What's ironic is that many people are bad at protecting themselves because they are too busy protecting other people in the same arena! It's almost like the car-driver that gets into a car accident because their right hand was jetting out to stop the passenger from flying forward when they breaking. The driver should be stopping the car, not playing the role of seat-belt for the passenger. The driver has a "boundary" issue; instead of protecting them self they are projecting their needs onto others. This is common amongst humans.
If you want to do magic on earth, one must tell the magic when to stop. (Jesus had to tell God when to stop turning water into wine.) By the way, if you tell the magic to turn a new direction, you are using step8 (i-decide). But if you want the energy to stop again, you must again use the soul-command: step0. (stop!)
People who have a problem protecting their lives never stop and take TIME and SPACE to think about the LIMITS of their lives or others. If you think about your life's limits, you will automatically define the limits of others around you, because once again - - that's the automatic nature of step0 consciousness. If you fail to think about your limits, other people's lives and limits will automatically define you. They are not control freaks, the law of God/YOUniverse is.
The degree of a person's Pluto in their natal astrology chart will explain PRECISELY where one is absolutely ignorant of boundaries at birth. I have never met someone without this truth of ignorance. The degree and sign of Pluto at the time of birth describes where the client will begin their life becoming bruised from ignorance, and later where the client will eventually protect others from their own hard-learned wisdom. This is the duality of "both" sides of the line. You begin dumb and end up an expert, or worse - dead.
That's another quality of Step0. "Zero tolerance." There is no margin for error when the error is a failure to define a margin!
Some people tell me that they "can't protect themselves" from dark energy or the negativity of others. This is not a failure to put up a wall of white light, but rather a failure to pay attention to one's inner-self.
It's not that you need a wall between you and other person in the outer world - it's that you fail to draw a distinction between yourself and the other person in the inner world.
To use a summer-time fun example, it's not that somebody is urinating in your swimming pool that makes you feel "attacked," it's that you can't tell where their pee starts and your pool water begins. People feel "overwhelmed" not because they are attacked, but rather because the definition of them self is blurred and that freaks them out. You don't know where your power is if "you" is unclear.
Thus, a well trained Scorpio will scan the room for emergency exit, knows the one word that will make you crazy, and also notices that your zipper is undone all in a fraction of a second. Scorpios define the line, always, and that makes them feel very powerful, indeed. (especially when almost nobody pays attention. It's also why Scorpios can feel so lonely, paradoxically)
If you notice, sometimes a Scorpio can't get passed the "zero" either. Sometimes a person never quite adds up to a "one", ever. And if a Scorpio down-grades you from a "one" to a "zero" there is no turning back - you are dead to them. You are out of their life forever - just as zero means zero - - like the coldness of empty space.
In the "11 Steps to Sirius*JoY" if you don't take TIME and SPACE to define your magic, it will continue through space and time forever and ever. If you don't take time to separate your feelings from others, you may accidentally assume you are them. And, if you don't take time to separate yourself form reality, you won't hear God/YOUniverse warning you through psychic information.
Truly, Step0 is the most magical and important step to life. It is the one principle that tells you if you are dead or alive to begin with.
You can learn more about the power of zero in my upcoming book, "the 11 Steps to Sirius*JoY" due out in 2016. I'm going to draw a little boundary and say this is all I have for now. lol.
