Multiplying the Power of the Individual

How about allowing nature — the intelligence inherent in that nature — to join us in equal partnership to give us the input we need to make new decisions and live in new ways that have a strong, positive impact on our lives and our health, as well as the planet? ~ Machaelle Wright, Celebrating the Power of the Individual

For the highest level of effectiveness, we need the greatest number of people around the planet participating in the EoP Biodiversity Process.

In early May, the U.N. released a 40-page summary of a forthcoming 1500-page global assessment of our planet's ecosystem and dwindling biodiversity.

"The bonds that hold nature together may be at risk of unraveling from deforestation, overfishing, development and other human activities . . . one million species may be pushed to extinction in the next few years, with serious consequences for human beings as well as the rest of life on Earth. . . . Nature is in trouble. Therefore we are in trouble. . . . In order to safeguard a healthy planet, society needs to shift from a sole focus on chasing economic growth, the summary report concludes. That won't be easy, the report acknowledges. But it could get easier if countries begin to base their economies on an understanding that nature is the foundation for development. Shifting to nature-based planning can help provide a better quality of life with far less impact."   [One Million Species at Risk of Extinction, National Geographic]


One million species may be pushed to extinction in the next few years. One million species. Machaelle thought about what Perelandra could add to address this unimaginable devastation of wildlife and biodiversity on a broader scale. How could Perelandra reach out and work in concert with you, the people using these tools? A brilliant idea was born. There is a way to expand our individual environmental work on our homes and lands. We can work together to release nature's strength and stability that will counter the damaging momentum of plant and wildlife extinction.

The Monthly EoP Biodiversity Process

The first day of every month, we will ask you to join us in doing one small but hugely impactful thing to support plant and wildlife diversity. To do this, we will need to work with Essence of Perelandra (EoP), using the steps given below. It will take less than five minutes, once a month.

On the same day, we will all shift EoP to our respective environment with a focus on strengthening and supporting its plant and wildlife biodiversity.

Machaelle has been reminding us for many years to "Celebrate the Power of the Individual," to not underestimate the impact we can each have on the bigger picture by making changes in our own life, by working with nature in our own home, our own garden. With the EoP Biodiversity Process, we are multiplying the power of the individual. By doing the process on a rhythmic basis, once a month on the 1st of every month, we are creating a coordinated release of nature's balance that will provide the strength and stability that is unique to Perelandra. This will, in turn, help slow down the momentum of the biodiversity damage and deterioration, and its resulting plant and wildlife extinction.

Doing this all together on the same day is a more powerful action than we may ever understand. This coordinated action allows you and your "little corner of this world" to contribute to the whole of our environment on the planet. With this process, you provide stabilizing strength to your personal biosphere and in doing so, you provide a network of stabilizing strength around the world for plants and animals to draw from as they struggle to survive the devastating effects of the climate crisis. Together we have brought Perelandra “to the table” when it comes to actively helping to address climate change damage and destruction. And as long as the climate change crisis is occurring, we will need to shift EoP monthly to provide a counterweight. Talk to your friends, family and neighbors who might like to join in on the first of next month. Help them set up with a copy of the steps, a sketch of their biosphere and a small bottle of EoP. The more participants, the wider and broader the EoP Biodiversity network, and the deeper its impact in your personal biosphere as well as globally.

From Nature: Picture one small co-creative garden on the planet's surface. See it as a window into the interior of the planet, into its soul. As the gardener works to align this garden to the new dynamics, watch the window open and the energy contained within the core of the planet gently gravitate to and release through the window. . . . I fully understand that I am aligning deep planetary change and universal movement with the actions of one gardener tending one small garden. That is precisely what I mean to do. ~ Read the full excerpt from The Perelandra Garden Workbook by Machaelle Wright

EoP Biodiversity Process Steps

Essence of Perelandra (EoP) strengthens and stabilizes an environment by providing the singular and powerful balance of the Perelandra garden. With EoP, Machaelle and nature gave each of us the ability to extend that powerful balance beyond the Perelandra biosphere to our own homes and environment. It's no small thing.

Do this monthly process for land you own, land you rent, land you are responsible for maintaining. Note: Your home is part of your property's biosphere. Machaelle and nature have set up the Biodiversity Process to include indoor environments, so you only have to do one inclusive shift for your full environment. Include your house and any other buildings in your description and diagram/plat.

Those who have no environmental option outside your room, apartment, RV, etc. may participate as well. You have biodiversity in your apartment or room (houseplants, pets, microbes, dust mites, ants, roaches, aquariums, terrariums, etc.). You will be adding support and balance to that biodiversity, which is helpful. Before you ask: Doing this process won't attract roaches, ants, etc. In fact, it might eliminate those long-term problems you've been fighting in your apartment.

Important: Focus on your own biosphere. Don't intrude on your neighbor or your neighboring community or another country. Let's stick to what's in front of us, and what is in our direct care.

  


For this, you will need Essence of Perelandra (EoP), a clean spoon and about 5 minutes.

1. Focus your attention on your environment and state: "I wish to set up with nature to shift Essence of Perelandra to my personal environment to provide the strength and support needed to counter and reverse climate change stress and the resulting loss and extinction of its biodiversity." Wait 10 seconds.

2. Describe your land (or home) succinctly. Say it aloud. For instance, you can use your home address, focus on a sketch of your land/yard/balcony, room/apartment, garden, pond, forest or farm, or use a copy of your plat. Keep a copy of your description so that you can easily refer to it each month.

3. Place 10 drops of Essence of Perelandra in a clean spoon. Hold the spoon out in front of you and say, "I wish to shift these Essence of Perelandra drops to the location I've described to provide the strength and support needed for reversing the impact of climate change and the resulting loss and extinction of its biodiversity." Continue to hold the spoon out in front of you for 10 seconds. The shift occurs automatically.

4. After 10 seconds, the shift is complete and you are finished. (Nature did the shift for you, so you might want to give a tip of the hat to nature and thank it before moving on with the rest your day!)

5. Wipe the spoon clean and you're done — until the first day of the next month!

truth Do this process monthly, on the first day of every month.
(Hint: Make it a recurring event on your calendar with reminders.)

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I do the process for my home if I'm away on vacation on the first of the month?

Yes. Take your bottle of EoP and your drawing with you, and use that to focus on your home property when doing the Biodiversity Process. You must maintain a strong focus when you are away, and have a clear definition of your home and land.


I have more than one home, can I do the process for both?

Yes, you can do this process for both of your homes. First do the shift for the home you're currently sitting in. Then immediately following that shift, set up for your second property. Focus on the corresponding drawing and complete the Biodiversity Process for that home.

Can I reword the focus of the shift?

No. To be effective, we all must use the wording exactly as it is in the process steps.

Is it really simple? Don't I need some special skill for something like this?

Anyone with a bottle of Essence of Perelandra can do this. The key to the Biodiversity Process is the quality of your focus. Set up well from the start with a clear written description, drawing, plat or sketch of your property. If you have a drawing in front of you, it's easy. All you need to do is focus on the drawing or sketch throughout the process.

Can I do the process more than once a month?

Yes, you can. Just be sure to also do it on the first of every month. For the highest level of effectiveness, we need the greatest number of people participating on the same day.

Is it okay to do the Biodiversity Process for a neighbor or friend?

Yes, if they ask. Do the process for your home first, then for your neighbor. Make sure you are just as clear with your focus and the description of your neighbor's property as you are with your own. Better yet — give them a bottle of Essence of Perelandra, and help them do the Biodiversity Process for their own land. Invite your neighbor to join you at your house on August 1st to watch you do the process. Then walk next door and be there while they do the process for their home.

Is there anything else I can do to lend continuing support to this same goal?

If you've already established a partnership with nature in your garden, farm, yard or home environment, you are contributing additional support. Add clarification to your DDP that you would like climate change to be taken into consideration, and you wish to support biodiversity. See Part 1 of our Garden Series for more on this.

If you would like to begin your partnership, get The Perelandra Garden Workbook and read this message from Machaelle.

Read our Environment Series for ideas and tips to address climate change and environmental health.

Another way to lend support is to spread the word about the Biodiversity Process, and help friends who are interested to get started. The more participants on the first of each month, the wider and broader the EoP Biodiversity network, and the deeper its impact in your personal biosphere as well as globally.


Are we knowingly causing a mass extinction? Are we evil? No, of course not. People keep doing what they do because the vast majority doesn't have a clue about the actual consequences of our everyday life, and they don't know that rapid change is required. ~ Greta Thunberg, FridaysForFuture
