color bullet Using the Support Circle and Positions:

Each person in the support provides assistance in a key area.  Jesus Christ and his 12 Apostles are an example of a Support Circle.  

The more positions in our Support Circle we have filled, the more powerful a person we are.  When someone leaves, it is important to fill their position in the Circle.  

Major shifts and internal monads usually destroy the circle and re-form it with other people.  Different people can occupy the position as secondary support.

In relationships, asking a mate to fill too many positions becomes very stifling � it is okay for them to fill 2 or 3 positions.  There should be at least someone in each support group (Intimates, Teacher, Grounding, Spiritual Lessons), although most people don�t have all support positions filled. 

The most powerful people have more positions filled.  During times of great change or turmoil, people may lose people in some groupings. 

In business situations, we usually work in groups of quadrants (4 people) and sextants (6 people), rather than a full support circle.
