Humanity’s greatest power is in groups. How can we ensure they are always a force for good?
The Lexion is the Spirit of a Group
Lexion technology explores the
structure, nature and behaviour
of the group psyche.
Whenever people gather, whether they want it or not, whether they are aware of it or not, a group spirit also emerges. Traditionally we recognise it as organisational culture. When we say Qantas Airlines feels different to Virgin Airlines, we are recognizing the spirit of the organisation.
The joy, enthusiasm and or dysfunction in an organisation can be traced to its collective spirit.
Lexion technology uses systematic repeatable techniques to reveal the hidden, psychological mechanisms within the organisation.
What has previously been managed intuitively by a charismatic leader is made visible and available to everyone.
The Lex is the perfect Form, in Platos model, the Archetype. Plato says for a horse to exist, somewhere is a perfect essence of horse-ness. Organisations also have a perfect essence or living Form that inspires the collective action and psychology of the group. A dysfunctional organisation occurs when no-one within the group is actively and consciously in touch with the Lex..
Lex as (Plato’s) archetypal blueprint,
The Lexion (capital L) as all that is aligned with the Lex,
The elexion as all that is imprinted with the qualities of the Lex.
lexion (small l) is the whole structure – everything associated with the Lex.
Morality, Organisations and Us
We are unique. While our incarnation standpoint is within physical reality, by nature we experience multiple standpoints, one of which comes through our heart.
The incarnation standpoint for organisations is limited to the astral or mental realms. For groups the pull towards self-determination is focused within the laws of intelligible realms, where attention is the focusing force (Palmer, 1994) and where time and space are not fixed.
The spirit of your organisation is not interested in the physical. It is not interested in your needs or moral imperatives.
It is interested in gaining momentum within consciousness, and it needs attention or devotion to increase its power.
What benefits the lexion may not benefit the people.
When we work in groups with a similar purpose our mental impulses flow together and
become a stream that is subject to principles of repulsion, attraction and attention or inattention. With enough people focused on a particular stream, the streams grow and become, a Being, a lexion, with its own destiny, desires and fears.
The greater the numbers giving it attention, the greater the force and the more compelling it becomes.
In ancient Greek,
‘lore, law and dharma’.
Within the structure of the Lex, everything is contained in its perfection,
The lexion is all that is associated with that particular Lex’.
Working with the lexion transforms the space of consciousness of the group. The lexion is a Being, in its own right, with its own desires, fears, psychological wounding and its own destiny.
When we ignore it, it operates in the background and usually in lower mode. When we communicate with it, it acts like a friendly breeze supporting new endeavours.
Vision is a powerful tool. In a similar way that ‘being seen’ allows an individual to remember their true nature, when the spirit of an organisation is truly ‘seen’ it naturally re-aligns with the purity of intent behind the original impulse.
Organisational integrity is considered to be present when the activities and systems of the group is aligned with the lore, law and dharma within the Lex.
Organisations are in essence the emanation of an idea. They are a living Being. Like us, each organisation has an emanation pathway, each has levels of emanation, a psychological make up and a subtle energetic action each organisation uses to ‘get what it wants’.
To recognise the organisational lexion at different levels of emanation requires a familiarity navigating consciousness. With ordinary mental consciousness we relate to the world of the five senses. Working with a lexion requires that we operate at Noetic levels of consciousness.
A technology of consciousness,
A theoretical framework, within a cosmological context
Experience mapping the spirit of organisations you are part of.
To consciously work with the lexion there are elements to explore, including how groups form, what is the role of Will, polarity and place. Each lexion has a relationship with the Earth and in the landscape of lexions. Things emanate in higher and lower mode and its up to us to maintain a an open pathway between the Lex and the more emanated elexion. Each group also has a particular energetic action, a metaphysical dance move it uses to get what it wants.
To work with the organisational lexion requires that we recognise it as a Being in its own right, and we learn its psychological make up and its non-physical structure.
To have a harmonious and healthy relationship with the spirit of your organisation requires we acknowledge and respect them like any other life form. When we ignore them, they operate in the back ground and usually in lower mode.
I’ve often struggled to find language to define meditative experiences and practices, and I appreciate the theoretical framework provided by Dr. Helen Russ in her Lexion class, and the way my understanding of what she teaches deepened after experiencing the practices. I gained a new understanding around the power of the human heart and conscious will in maintaining the integrity of an organization, and a new awareness of the levels of consciousness at play within the development and maintenance of an organization, as well creative projects. I’m looking forward to seeing how the knowledge and experienced gained in this class will play out in my work and life.
I’m very grateful for taking Helen’s Lexion training. Since taking it I feel more awakened and empowered. Learning about the Lexion, different organizations, and levels of consciousness has opened my awareness to another reality that is so much more profound. I have a new level of understanding of organizations which is greatly beneficial to my life and future goals. This course has given me so many tools, knowledge and clarity that I will continue to use and explore.
Once an organisation’s Lexion is recognised and aligned with the Lex, there is a resulting flow and rightness at the elexion and physical levels. Dr. Helen Russ has brought an essential slice of knowledge to working with and for organisations; knowledge that, when applied, results in a smooth and timely completion of projects.
