Seed 7 contains the source of all possibilities. It is seen as the source of existence. It could also be named ultimate reality or the source of light we are all connected to. It has many names in different traditions. Each of the seeds offers an entry point into transformation, self-discovery, and uncovering human potential.

Each of them is an entry point for change to expand into more possibilities of self-esteem, expression, clear decisions, and focus. The underlying principle is unconditional love, which could find expression in compassion or gratitude. The case study that was part of the development of this writing showed that unconditional love became the basis of existence for those aligning all seven seeds. This will be discussed in more detail in an upcoming book based on Dr. Xian’s research on transcendence and gratitude.
