Orchestrating Intelligence Primary Expression

(Formerly discussed as King, Intrapersonal or Ray 1)

Primary Contribution: Masterful Coordination. The Orchestrating Intelligence is extremely powerful in organizing large-scale projects and events in order to bring unseen opportunities into focus. While people often fear our destructive capabilities, our major contribution, in fact, is the ability to sweep away what is not needed. Our Orchestrating Intelligence represents approximately one to two percent of the population and we are known for our courage, resourcefulness, responsibility, sense of timing and comprehensive strategies. Under our liberating and benevolent leadership, we invite others to go beyond their own fears and expectations. We Orchestrating Intelligences, or Orchestrators, as we are called, insist on maximum integrity, which can be intimidating because we demand the complete truth. If followers withhold material, facts or information critical to the management of the project, it can cause problems our Orchestrating Intelligence does not forget.

Leadership Style: Strategic Intent Building. Orchestrators contribute a concrete strategic perspective that is large-scale or big-picture oriented. We lead by heroic action against great odds. We organize and systematize a command control structure so implementation is clearly visible. Our Orchestrating Intelligence demands that others align with our vision and this is reflected in the responses to our comments and suggestions. When evolved, Orchestrators will focus entirely upon the transpersonal interactions necessary to complete a project. Orchestrators spend a tremendous amount of management time making certain we have the best possible person for each job. We hire others for their capacity, not their potential.

We Orchestrators expect dedication and commitment and infrequently provide second chances when disappointed. We believe the value of each team member’s ability to take action without being told. Orchestrators expect all team members to understand not only their own jobs, but also how their jobs interrelate to others on the team. We are able to make tough choices, particularly because as we do not honor the "non-company" desires of others. Basically, others are seen as non-personal implementers of the plan and should only focus on the business at hand. We Orchestrators pride ourselves on our ability to remain aloof and free from personal attachments.

Primary Blindness: We can be tyrannical, judgmental and can act with a sense of impulsiveness and abruptness, which can be very difficult to be around. When things go wrong the focus becomes how to make it work. Intensity and anger drive limited, common sense options where the performance (or more importantly the non-performance of others) can get you fired. The blindness occurs when survival becomes paramount. Sometimes, our negative, bullying expression knocks everyone off balance so that emotional reactions dominate the interchange. We can use fear (to our detriment) to break down resistance. This is because anger is one of the safe Emotions no one will misinterpret. Unactualized, we can be intolerant when others do not follow our commands.  We believe our own propaganda about our daring and invincible nature and end up dictating too much about how it “should be” and not listening enough to others about how things actually are. When unactualized, we can suffer from grandiosity, vanity and arrogance and we are often seen as tyrannical, over-bearing, heartless, condescending, over-confident, insensitive, intolerant of weakness, demanding, inflexible, haughty and extravagant. Our singleness of purpose can lead to solitariness, heartlessness and detachment from others.

Development Process: Undeveloped Orchestrators act as dictators and have outbursts of anger and frustration. Our love of power initially gets us into trouble, because when we act from our solar plexus (our gut instinct), we come to rely on force in implementing our plans. Although we use the expertise of others, we do not trust that they have any understanding of the big picture and therefore, we do not empower others to make decisions. We Orchestrating Intelligences first build a foundation by honoring our mastery in task management skills, and then expands our ability to interact with people by embracing more of our intuitive and emotional knowing. Thereafter, our energy moves into our heads. We accomplish this by increasing our scope or perspective and concentrating on manifesting our mastery in a way that is more inclusive than that of others. Eventually, we come to realize that people are not machines and that we need to support the free will of those around us to truly command respect and loyalty. By coming to trust ourselves, we learn to trust others.

Identifying Characteristics:  We are immediately identified by our willfulness, pride and sense of absolute fearlessness and power. We can also be identified by our grounded charismatic presence. We are poised, composed and self-assured in our interactions with others, and we are typically tall and thin. Many individuals can be intimidated by our sheer force of will or chafe at our deep sense of self-mastery. Some people feel tension in their solar plexus, when we walk into a room. This reflects our complete dominance or determination. Actualized, we are elegant and charming and we seem to know how to be appropriate in any situation.

Orchestrating Intelligence Exploration

The values of our Primary Orchestrating Intelligence are developed in three stages. In early stages, our Orchestrating Intelligence is fully embodied when we manifest Inclusive Dominion. In this way, we demonstrate Personal Magnetism, Benevolent Leadership, Conscious Coordination and a Heart’s Desire for the benefit of all. This is embodied in our ability to share power with others in a way that produces results. This means that we no longer feel driven to be at the center of any situation but instead are respected by others, because we are willing to adjust our plans. Embodied Orchestrating Intelligences operate with a natural state of inner knowing about when and how to initiate projects that will succeed. We are able to first clear the playing field by sweeping away all previously incomplete and unsuccessful attempts at a solution. We do this with great grace and personal dignity. We become natural conductors of others because of our insightfulness in knowing who and what to bring together to create a bigger solution.

Also in early stages, our objective is Creative Will while we are still attempting to prove ourselves. We can identify this stage by our Elevated Desires (or Unspoken Demands), Invincible Presence, Directive Progression (get it done framework), and an inability to deal with the Feelings and Emotions of others. This reflects our need to help overcome conflicts in our path. Some would say that it is not enough that we succeed, but that all others must fail. The key purpose is to master the circumstances so that we effectively dominate the entire interaction. This, of course, creates reactions in others, who typically end up feeling used and abused. Our Orchestrating Intelligence can be seen as forcefully abrupt, belligerent and arrogant, like no other Creative Expression. What is different is that at early stages we have no foresight or anticipation of likely obstacles and therefore, we can be emotionally blindsided when things are not as easy as expected. What is common in early stages is our ability to harshly judge and berate those around us if things do not go well. If we are repressed, others notice we have an attachment to External Power and Coercion with Tyrannical Demands. Usually, this is a result of being mistreated and/or not valued for our ability to see a larger picture. Typically, our internal power is denied, discounted or laughed at, which prevents us from having a balanced capacity to externalize our power in a positive way. This is the stage where we are a primary individual contributor and not able to integrate with others.

The most important way others can honor us is to accept our sense of direction, because it is our Creative Will, which is capable of establishing the shortest path to a result. In a way, we reflect the compass that sets the best course of action for the group we seek to serve. If we are not putting the group first, then we know we have been hurt and are not fully in our power. The more inclusive we are with others, the more others can trust us.  We radiate calmness, clarity and commitment and manifest it on a physical level through actions that are in complete alignment with our being. This shows up as a form of integrity, which becomes very tangible when people interact with us. When we honor our inner knowing, alignment and creative will, we relax into a state of being which makes us more available to everyone and everything. 

We are concentrated and one-pointed [Zen: Do one thing at a time, and do it well] and we are able to make decisions on the fly with relative ease. We operate in a straight line, like an arrow seeking its target. We expand or explode any imbalances in Intent so that Life energy is free to manifest. We are called Orchestrators because we integrate different perspectives within ourselves and then use this unified framework to set a course that others either respond or react to. We are clear-cut, hard-edged and thorough in our in-depth appreciation of detail and can articulate and put together a large external picture. Metaphorically, we are the primary energy of the Father and masculine. For this reason, the masterful use of tools is what provides us a sense of progress and fulfillment. Our Orchestrating Intelligence relates everything to the Self and we can be considered self-centered, because others do not understand the unifying effect and benefit of our self-focus. This quality makes us decisive and we can arrive at answers quickly with minimal interaction with others. We also have little regret or doubt. We protect our conclusions to the end, even though we may change them along the way.

Since our Intelligence engages Will on a personal level, we have an unshakeable fixity of purpose. Our self-focus also makes us very clear about what is relevant in particular situations. This means we focus on the key elements or principals driving a process and do not get bogged down in the details. We take our experience and synthetically project it in a way that can be seen as asserting itself on the world. We see what is needed and get to the core facts of the matter through a rigorous internal methodology that guarantees an answer in a minimal amount of time. Our Intelligence works by being the expansive Thought that moves it forward. Often, we are seen as selfish, self-centered people, preoccupied with the principles being expressed.

Once a decision is made, we mobilize all our resources quickly towards our goal. Our minds hold a large, broad vision, which initially, we leave open when considering a plan of engagement. We try to position a plan in a way that maximizes benefit and minimizes the ability of others to affect it. This upsets those who wish to be consulted before any action is contemplated. The appearance that Orchestrators are unwilling to share, reflects our personal decision making process. We do not like opening our thinking process to others. This trait further amplifies the belief that we are hard to deal with. Common terms for understanding how we unify various concepts do not exist, because, paradoxically, we integrate the positive and negative simultaneously. This, and our quick ability to move forward, distinguishes us from the Visionary Intelligence.

We accomplish this with brevity and economy of effort that frequently leaves people behind. Like the Investigative Intelligence, we use the mental plane to integrate all other types of knowing. We are outspoken, unembellished in our communication, and willing to cut through all obstacles to fulfill personal goals.  We are direct, unequivocal, and committed to making our points in a way that breaks through any preconceptions about a situation. Our unique power is to destroy the illusory by refusing to get caught up in Objectification and Subjectification. We do, however, get caught up in a bit of Idealization around our ability to see and anticipate potential obstacles. While capable of great convergence, we tend to fall into patterns of extreme discrimination, where we exclude rather than include.

Our internally based, independent type of Intelligence does not like to rely on other people or information, which cannot be verified. Like the Investigative Intelligence, we evaluate information sources based on the level of perceived bias. Unlike the Investigative Intelligence, we bias our perception based on past experience, both positive and negative. This is because our evaluations are based on real world experience and not abstract detachment. We are committed to putting the full power of our minds on the line, compelling all Thoughts to serve the chosen goal. Our Orchestrating Intelligence reinforces and grounds the Investigative Intelligence, emphasized by Investigative Intelligence Primary and Secondary expressions. When the two are integrated, it greatly magnifies their effect on the world. The opposite is often true when we put Orchestrating Intelligence with the Compassionate Intelligence. Then it modifies the emotional connection of Compassionate with the Orchestrating Intelligences, making it easier to connect with them. Orchestrators are more likely to centralize power in intellectual (Subjectification) and physical (Objectification) frameworks before investing (at all) in the emotional/feeling realm. Orchestrators are extremely sensitive to touch, especially when it relates to conveying a vibratory quality.

We can recognize the importance of our Orchestrating Intelligence by how we overdo, under-do, or react to it. When we overdo this Intelligence, we become dominating as we demonstrate the impressiveness of our thinking (by imposing it on others). When we under do this Intelligence, we become reserved and unwilling to speak out in all but brief terms. When overwhelmed and/or discounted by individuals who do not accept our form of Intelligence (particularly if they are not willing to consider a larger, more integrated plan), we become extremely one-pointed and manifest our intellectual endurance in trenchant ways. It is interesting to note that while our Intelligence can be affirmative, it does not want to get lost in self-flattering delusions. When we are hurt, we become outspoken and isolating at the same time to protect our self.

On the Primary level our Intelligence is not as polarized as a Secondary or Tertiary expression and ends up being more about either engaging life or denying it. When we are not making a contribution that fulfills us we tend to disengage and feel isolated, alone, or aloof. This is an indication that we could be doing more by leading others, formulating plans, or sharing how things can be brought together. Usually this can begin in terms of where we find joy or fascination with a particular endeavor or field. If nothing else, becoming involved in any activity or type of endeavor will naturally deepen our perception about its possibilities. Eventually, this will lead us to see how things can become more integrated. It is important to recognize that following our bliss and joy is much easier than living with the pain of isolation, aloneness or aloofness. Another indicator that we are starting to open up and engage our Primary expression is the presence and expression of positive Emotions. When this happens, it becomes easier to compliment and acknowledge the value of others. We are also able to share the benefits of our endeavors more forthrightly. The key is not to get caught up in an exalted personal identity that reduces our ability to bring in the right group of people to implement the change that is required.

Understanding The Orchestrating Intelligence

What people do not understand is that we see ourselves as an agent for Universal expression. Our desire to make a difference is in response to trying to fulfill Universal principals and laws. Our willfulness and dominion is not an expression of personal ambition so much as a desire to contribute in a way that is direct, truthful and uncompromised in its approach. What we do not want to do is betray our own talent by demanding less from others or ourselves. In effect, we want to establish a space where everyone creatively maximizes their contribution to produce certain results. Where others may interpret this as domination we see it as creating a space of dominion where creativity can occur without compromise. Others also believe that our willfulness is a form of arrogance, but to us it is not. Arrogance is a self-centered perception where we overestimate our abilities. With Will, we create a space where possibilities can occur and do not claim any superior perception of the facts. All we seek to do as Primary Orchestrators, is to bring all co-creators into the tent of our Orchestrating knowing so they can be the best they can be.

We can recognize the importance of Orchestrating Intelligence by how we over-engage (projecting our Intelligence onto others), not expecting anyone to question or contradict our plans. When we push ourselves and over engage our Intelligence we tend to focus on what others need to know and when they need to know it. When we discount or deny our Intelligence, we fixate on our internal needs and perspectives, which keeps us from engaging others and then becoming passive observers. When we over engage our Primary Intelligence, we become internally insulated, isolate, and directive because we believe that our focus needs to be on clarifying what others should do. This leads us to be harsh and demanding of others. When we are not engaging our Intelligence, we become a planning machine that does not take into account the personal contributions of others. Instead, we operate from a set of internal standards of what an average person could accomplish with a certain skill set. This means we do not have to be burdened by customizing the job to minimize risk. We become extremely patronizing and unable to focus on how to connect with others. In this situation we inadvertently ignore others and internally fixate on systematically doing our job without comment or concern. The result of denying ourselves and not engaging our Primary Intelligence results in greater withholding, both in terms of communication and sense of our humanity. The key to expressing our Primary Orchestrating Intelligence is to create balance within so that we operate in a flow between ourselves and others.

This requires that we accept our nature and way of doing things and do not create obstacles to our expression. Some would say our Authentic Nature is about accepting our unique scope and finding the best way to express ourselves so that group creativity can manifest. The more we become a polarizing figure, the more we generate resistance, which keeps us from being successful. Our success arises from the ability to connect powerfully with each team member so our insightfulness and decision making skills can result in a synergistic solution. At the other extreme when we over-engage our desires and become attached to them, we tend to personalize power, which requires us to fight others for the best solution. The overall solution is to be present with both our fears and desires around being who we are so we don’t have to act out these issues with others. The more we can make it ok to have these experiences, the less charge we will carry that can then be triggered by others around us. When we are overwhelmed and/or discounted by individuals who do not accept our Primary Intelligence, we become extremely proactive and self-defined as to what needs to be done. A positive way to view this is that we startle others into realizing what they do not know about a situation so they accept our premises.

In conclusion, it is important to remember that our Primary Intelligence provides the space of being who we are and determines how we gain fulfillment. Fulfillment shows up as an ability to make changes on global scale by engaging in projects that have an impact on society.

Our Primary Orchestrating Intelligence grows through inclusion and operates from the theme of “I assert the fact.” This is different from a Secondary expression, which focuses us on how we obtain security by being successful, which usually means translating our plans into commodities that will make us wealthy. Our Tertiary Intelligence focuses us on safety and determines how we are seen in our family of origin. We manifest our safety by making sure that no one has any ability to impact our destiny, cut us off from our needs or limit our expression.
