The Seven CPM principle groups
The Seven CPM principle groups have been aligned with the seven basic needs of all humans. The seven CPM principle groups are representations of all behaviors in that group. They are shown below and related to a 2017 book titled "Humanification" by Christian Kromme. The "Needs" are based on Maslow's hierarchy, but modified [both order and definition] by CPM.
The Nervous system covers the thirst five levels of biology based on Polyvagal theory"
- Level 1 is the single cell. Its control system was to "immoblise" itself, by shutting down. That was it's only defense mechanism. In humans it is the "Dorsal vagus nerve" and is activated when the client slips to into procratination, avoidance and finally depression or suddenly into trauma.
- Level 2, 3 & 4 relate to the fight-flight, Sympathetic nervous system and found in reptiles.
- Level 5 in the "Engagement nerve" and is found in animals to form relationships, primarily for safety.
- The Engagement nerve is primarily connected to the right side of the brain. Polyvagal theory ties in with Iain McGilchrist's left-right brain theory. That the purpose of the right brain is for "Atunement", where as the left side of the brain is for "Attention" . Hence the "Bird brain"[ left brain for getting seed from the ground, right brain for awareness of the cat], each performing different functions.
The steps used to develop the seven CPM principle groups were based on the following criteria, accepting that these are subjective, yet valid for modeling purposes
Level 7-Spiritual principles
- Positive or used to neutralize negative principles.
Spiritual principles are broken down into two groups for the purpose of either achieving conscious flow or subconscious flow.
Subconscious optimum flow
Relies only on the subconscious with no interference from the conscious mind. “Just do it” It is based on transcendence and uses the Default Mode Network in Creative Mode.
Hope: Knowing the outcome will occur before it has.
Unconditional Giving. Giving without expecting anything back
Unconditional Acceptance. Accepting everything and anything without conditions.
Joy when hope, humility and unconditional giving come together.
- Conscious flow based on hope, unconditional giving and acceptance, but if internal rules or boundaries are broken then flow stops.
The action prevents the person from getting emotional hurt because they are not yet ready to transcend their fear or greed.
Other spiritual principles
If you can forgive at this level, then it provides a base for unconditional giving at higher levels.
Use peace to overcome negative principles. Sit with anger, fear, anxiousness, guilt and accepted it with no responsibility to fix it. Peace kills both rumination and worry.
Note: If you can learn acceptance at this level, then it provides a base for unconditional acceptance at higher levels.
Use suffering to grow behavioral principles. Eg. Suffer and grow assertiveness, rather than go into rage and abuse the person.
Suffering is based on acceptance, if you suffer with influence. However, if you suffer with concern, you will blame the other person or yourself.
If you can suffer and grow at this level you learn to suffer and accept unconditionally at higher levels.
Use giving to grow love through trust, respect, acceptance and commitment, but use rules, boundaries and consequences to stop from being hurt.
Giving at this level allows the rules, boundaries and consequences to be learnt through repetition, so that when you move to the next phase of unconditional giving the rules, boundaries and consequences are automatically applied.
Use Humlility to grow acceptance for your negative concerns
Humility at this level teaches about acceptance and prepares for higher levels of unconditional acceptance .
Level 6-Cognitive principle.
The cognitive principles are truth, integrity, justice, honesty, clarity, assurance and curiosity and are used do develop wisdom when paying attention to external information and information received from the subconscious mind.
Level 5- Relationship principles
- Positive –Personal based on love and attachment:
Key emotions selected: trust, respect, acceptance and commitment.
Level 4-Influencing Principles
- Positive and behavioral. Based on the opposite of negative and behavioral, but also lead to relationship principles:
- Fear to Courage leading to trust
- Anger to assertiveness leading to respect.
- Critical to evaluation leading to acceptance [or rejection]
- Anxiety and guilt to self-control leading to commitment.
Level 3-Negative Principles
- Negative-Behavioral based on the principle of support and challenge, which provides challenge to relationship principles od trust, respect, acceptance and commitment.
- Trust is fear.
- Respect is anger
- Acceptance is criticalness
- Commitment is anxiety or guilt.
Level 2- False Positives
When a person can't process negative concerns, they escape into false positives, namely:
- Paranoid Fear to Fantasy [including addictions]
- Rage to Conceit
- Rejection to Greed
- Panic into false self-confidence
- Guilt to Self-entitlement
Level 1-Negative Concerns
Negative-personal based on negative principles. On a scale of 1 to 100 feels more personal than behavioral:
- Fear to Paranoid fear
- Anger to rage
- Critical to rejection
- Anxiety to panic
- Guilt to shame.
