foreground for only one year. However, it sometimes repeats itself two or three times,
usually spaced a few years apart.
The lower half of the chart shows the circumstances and influences you will experience
on the material plane. There are always three numbers involved during any period of your
life. They are found in a downward pointed triangle, where the number in the left corner
is called the Root and indicates the origin or cause of certain events, the number on the
right is called the Action Key and reveals your best response to deal with the demands of
your Root, while the number centered below the Root and Action Key is called the
Outcome, and represents the likely result.
The top half of the chart reflects your spiritual body. Each number reflects a Challenge or
Spiritual Quest and is connected to the Root, Action Key, and Outcome as described
above, for the same age period.
The concept behind the Challenges in the top half of the Diamond is that your Spiritual
body requires nutrients just like your physical body does. However, the nutrients needed
by your Spiritual body are in the form of experiences, feelings, intellectual realizations,
and so forth.
The Root, Action Key, and Outcome found in the lower half of the Diamond are designed
to meet the "nutritional requirements" of your Spiritual body.
The most important thing to understand:
The most important thing to understand is that the Diamond, although based on YOUR
name and specific only to YOU, doesn't have anything to do with your talents, abilities,
shortcomings, strengths, or other character traits.
Instead, the Diamond shows the underlying forces that deliver certain experiences on the
material plane (which includes your physical, your mental, your emotional, and your
intuitive planes). These experiences are "the nutrients" for your Spiritual body and help
you progress on the spiritual plane.
The experiences as described by the Root, Action Key, and Outcome, are not specific
events but reveal the hidden forces at work. For example, the Root may tell us that "you
experience a lack of stability. You often find yourself in unexpected and rather chaotic
circumstances." This lack of stability may be experienced in a number of different ways.
Your personal forecast as produced with the individual reports done with the
ForecasterPlus or DecozProPlus software, will tell you more about the way in which this
lack of stability is delivered. The Diamond, however, explains the REAL reasons you go
through these experiences.
This is why the Diamond has much in common with other techniques that focus less on
specific events, and more on the somewhat veiled, and certainly mysterious, interaction
between the material and the spiritual body.
