    [Excerpt from Martial Nature Body Type]

     

    Bobby: For the rest of my time, would you expand upon the Martial/Nature body type for me like you did the Lunar/Nature body type for VIP? I'd like to add mine to the pool of info that is being gathered on the different body types. You started that off for him with something like "At the heart of the Lunar Body Type is a struggle with..." and continued on from there so I'm looking for something similar except for Martial/Nature.  Based upon what he got, this may even be report option for Troy to offer.

     

    MEntity:
    We understand.

     

    To start out with your requested phrasing, we might say that at the heart of the Martial Body Type is struggle (and strength) of constantly navigating through life by assessing what NOT to do. The Martial Body Type is an Active body type, so it is naturally seeking stimulations, pleasures, experiences, etc, but it is an Active Negative Body Type, so it tends to focus more on what NOT to do, than on what TO DO.

     

    This might be the like the difference between emphasizing NOT to touch the hot burner, NOT to spill the hot water, NOT to bump the pot off of the burner, and having all of this emphasized out of proportion to the joy of having tea.

     

    There is a constant process of self-monitoring, self-consciousness, even to the point of micro-managing, but always on the side of what SHOULD NOT be done.

     

    This can lead to great amounts of defensiveness and reactionary outburst that are always just below the surface of the skin, particularly provoked if there is direction or correction given that is repeating what is already a part of the strict, Martial navigation.

     

    Martial Nature does not mind being informed of something new to do or not to do, but do not respond well to being told what to do or not to do if he or she is already doing or not doing that.

     

    Bobby: LOL

     

    MEntity:
    This Nature is a strength, as well, if this is processed compassionately and gently as a form of navigation.

     

    When it is processed as a strength, it is merely a standard of integrity and responsibility.

     

    If this standard of integrity and responsibility is owned, and managed compassionately and gently, it also frees the fragment from expanding the range of the micro-managing, critical, and constant assessment of what others are doing wrong, or doing that should not be done.

     

    Often the Martial Nature will distract itself from its own constant self-criticism by moving that outwardly, even if privately, to those of others.

     

    What the Martial Nature eventually learns is that knowing what NOT to do is learned precisely BY DOING WHAT NOT TO DO.

     

    Do not touch the hot burner was not learned by being told not to touch it. It was learned by touching it.

     

    In fact, if a Martial Nature is told what not to do, and he or she has not learned not to do it through doing it, then the thing that was told not to do becomes quite distracting to DO.

     

    So it can be quite a volatile form of navigation for the Martial Nature. If he is told what not to do when he already know what not to do, it can be offensive. If he is told what not to do when he has not even done it, then he will be compelled to do it so he knows not to do it. On his or her own.

     

    The Martial Nature processes experiences via the Adrenals, and because of this can develop an enduring, high tolerance for stress that is not familiar to any other Body Type.

     

    It can be quite foreign to the Martial as to how others can be so upset, so thrown off, so disoriented by the simplest of struggles or challenges when measured against their own capacity for managing stress.

     

    The way the Martial Nature learns empathy for this is through his or her own "meltdowns" and reactions. If there can be drawn a connection between their own breaking point for stress, and calibrate this to understand that others may simply have different points, then the empathy can come. Martial Nature may develop more endurance for stress, but even they have breaking points, and, ironically, these may come even more often than they do for others, but the Martial Nature will justify their own over those of others, because they usually handle stress quite well, so it is presumed there must be a valid reason for their reaction when it is not handled well.

     

    Bobby: lots of LOLs here :-)

     

    MEntity: For this reason, the older soul in a Martial Body Type will tend to bond with, or surround herself or himself with, those who have difficulty managing stress, to not only learn more about compassion and patience and kindness for the variation in stress management, but also to keep his or her own breakdowns from being too showcased.
