Who am I ?
"Once you understand that you are neither your name nor your actions, feelings, thoughts or beliefs, you realize that human nature is something far greater and wider than you ever suspected."
SELF-OBSESSION - NATURALNESS - BEING
Who is this Archetype?
The Natural lives in complete acceptance and celebration of who he is, and that naturally inspires self-love in others. He has a unique, individual expression of behavior, emanating from a deep self-respect that is completely unafraid of what anyone else thinks. He is comfortable in his skin and doesn’t care about fitting in.
The Natural is in love with life and has surrendered to living authentically as himself in a way that is good for him and no one else. Through being true to his own nature, this archetype has awakened to experience ever expanding genuine self love and integrity. By embracing the pleasure of exploring life in a self-aware form and living as his true self, The Natural empowers his potential to awake in the moment.
Self aware and authentic, the Natural empowers others to live out their magnificence by demonstrating his own magnificence in the now. He has an innate confidence and willingness to share himself with the world. This embodiment of self love is having a truly empowering effect on his friends and audience.
The Natural is robust and doesn’t lose his joie de vivre despite many bumps in the road on his life journey. He stays true to his vision and inherent trust in life and himself. He is versatile and adapts to new conditions, challenges and directions. He is sometimes given the nickname chameleon.
The Natural surrounds himself with people who appreciate, support, nurture and inspire him. He has a close relationship with the Tranquil (20), who helps him express verbally and spontaneously. Together they communicate empowerment to others. The Natural is also connected to the Black Panther (34), and she is connecting him to the self love and naturalness of the body and life force. Together they show the world the importance of following one’s own energy and conviction. Another close relationship The Natural experiences is with the Intuitive (57), who is connected to intuition through the senses and instinct. Together they are naturally creating beauty by being attuned to everything around them.

Gene Key Patterns:
Victim of Self Obsession
This kind of reversal of the energy of self-obsession becomes entirely centrifugal and focuses on everything and anything but yourself. Your life is lived for others and through others. However, such martyrdom does not have a positive spin and cannot serve evolution. Your life is made up entirely of compromise in which you become like zombies for the collective. Although this kind of language may sound shocking, a huge majority of the world population lives like this—with no real self-love and no true center or heart within themselves. You are the prime target for the great world religions. Your self-denial does not allow you to recognize the Divine within you, finding it far easier to project such an authority outside you.
From the Gene Keys
Your shadow denies the existence of others. Your life is based entirely around yourself. The fear within you lives as anger—you project your fear of losing your identity onto others and onto society in general. You can’t yield any part of yourself to others. You live in paranoia that the world or others will somehow rob you of your right to freedom. You find relationships the hardest of all, since you are essentially locked in a love affair with yourself but not with your true self. The true self is everywhere and in everything, since its nature is love. However to realize such a concept, you have to drop the very thing that gives you the illusion of safety—the illusion of individual identity.
From the Gene Keys

Where are you compromising or losing yourself in others? How can you stop that?
Do you take care of yourself? Give a few examples.
Do you treat yourself with love and respect?
Do you give yourself the same love, compassion and benefit of a doubt you give to others? Why not?
Do you need to control things or are you relaxed in the flow?
When you are living your magnificence, how do you affect others? When others are living their magnificence, how do you feel?
What does being empowered mean to you?
When do you feel like a radical?
Does life feel easy or hard?
Do you focus on the past? The future? The present moment? What are indicators to you about where your focus lies?
What choices could you make that would be in alignment with your self-love?
Make a list of the things you love about yourself. Use this list to write a love letter to yourself.

Exploring the Archetype
"The Gift of Naturalness cannot be practiced, copied or systematized. It can only emerge through a rising sense of inner freedom and spaciousness."
Gene Key 10 - The Gene Keys, Richard Rudd
UNDERSTAND THE NATURAL
BELLA EXPLAINS THE NATURAL AND WEAVES THE TEACHINGS FROM THE GENE KEYS AND HUMAN DESIGN.
"Being undermines everything—it does not allow identification with anything outside the wonder of the present moment."
Gene Key 10
"To rest unattached in the supreme state of being whilst at the same time participating in the adventure of our evolution is quite possibly the greatest task that the humans of the future will have to master."

Self-Obsession – Naturalness – Being
Victim Pattern: Victim of Self-Obsession
Shadow: The Mazy Pathways of the Self (self-obsession)
“Through the lens of the 10th Shadow, all you see when you look at others is people you would like to change.”
Gift: Living Your Own Myth (Naturalness)
“The life of every individual human being is a journey through the frequencies of this 10th Gene Key.”
Siddhi: Divine Laziness (Being)
“The 10th Siddhi is a reminder that it is all but a game, a leela or play, in which even our loftiest ambitions are ultimately meaningless.”
EMBRACE your shadows. Sometimes our shadows just need attention and love to be transformed. An embrace is a hug. We pull it in; we do not push away. Hug until it blends and transforms inside of you, revealing the GIFT within. The gift is then RELEASED within you and outside of you. You EMBODY the Siddhi when this essence vibrates through your whole being.
Use these phone backgrounds as a reminder for you through the transit.
"Whatever is in your heart, whatever you’re meant to do or express, will simply arise out of you with naturalness."

The 10th Gene Key flies out of the box with all ten: they applaud. Richard Rudd says the little hollow inside is a Treasure Chest – the treasure of being human, you can clasp them either way around. “This is how we meet each other and we greet each other. We shake hands like this, and we pass treasure from one person to the next. Close your eyes, breathe into that treasure chest, focus on the beauty and treasure of Being” … and meet your self
