7 Principles for Conflict Resolution
Created by Sommer Nielsen

Principle #1- Take on the full responsibility for creating your moral intentions, good or bad. 

 

This way we will be able to forgive ourselves for our bad intentions and change them. We do this because we have inherent worth and the moral potential to do what is right. This principle is the foundation for all of the others to work properly. Without this core principle in action, we will only seek to manipulate ourselves and others. We must not give away our responsibility to others to create our moral intentions or attempt to create other's moral intentions. We must also not deny our responsibility to create objective, moral intentions.

Principle #2- Validate your feelings and validate the feelings of those who care enough to validate yours.

If we aren’t open to validating our emotions, we won't be able to discern whether we or others have good or bad intentions because we will become distracted by our emotions, instead, thinking they are somehow in our way when they are not. ⬇️


Principle #3- Be willing to discern whether you and others have good or bad intentions

 

We must make use of our ability to reason to make sense of what we don't know about our intentions and the intentions of others. This is what allows us to get to the root of our beliefs and allows us to admit whether we have good or bad intentions. ⬇️


Principle #4- Be open to admitting whether you have good or bad intentions, to yourself and to those you trust. 

 

This allows us to be up front about our intentions. ⬇️


Principle #5- Stay consistently honest and upfront about your intentions, to yourself and to those you trust. 

 

This creates trust and consistency. This allows us to work towards trusting our intuition and allows others to trust us. ⬇️


Principle #6- Trust that you have the intuitive ability to know the truth about your intentions and the intentions of others.

 

This allows us to protect the truth about whether we have good or bad intentions. ⬇️


Principle #7-Protect the knowledge you have gained about the truth about your intentions and the intentions of others. 

 

This allows us to protect the innocent and discipline the unjust. This fulfills the Shine Your Light Co. vision.
