“To the mind that is still, the whole universe surrenders.”
- Lao Tzu
Stress - Restraint - Stillness
Who is this Archetype?
Through the stillness of The Mountain, we find the fuel to focus. This archetype has a deep staying power as long as it can find the right outlet through which it can be of service. It uses its concentration in the service of improving something that makes a difference in the world.
We can say this archetype is Buddha-like since it inherently has the ability to still the physical body and senses and use energy in a focused way. When everyone is getting crazy, this archetype knows that nothing lasts forever and that “this too will pass”.
The Mountain knows when it is time for action and when it is time to keep still, turn inward and reflect. It holds a highly creative energy, one that empowers it to concentrate on the goal, hold its gaze, wait in stillness until the right time, and then, take the right actions.
The Mountain masters restraint, moderation and patience. It lets life and dreams unfold without pushing or forcing. The chaos of the storm or fire can be raging around it, and it doesn’t get absorbed. Its deep groundedness anchors its wisdom. It knows how not to interfere, and that the greatest seeds take the longest to germinate.
The Mountain archetype has a core strength and carries a silent stillness. In every situation, the Mountain has an unparalleled view of things and can bring an unbiased perspective. There is clarity, and the Mountain’s view is always valuable.

Gene Key Patterns:
Victim of Stress
Dilemma: Shallow Breathing
You never really get off the ground. The Gift of Restraint remains locked in an extreme shadow manifestation and leads to a deep feeling of being stuck. These feelings can so pervade your body and make you enter a deep state of depression and apathy. As you give up on yourself, the adrenal system can actually atrophy leaving you physically impeded in some way. Once you have sunk into these states, it can be very difficult to escape.
From the Gene Keys
You seem unable to sit still. You try to escape your fear through activity. However, you mask your fear through projecting your frustration and anger onto others. The restless aspect of stress is based upon over-stimulation of the adrenal glands, producing more energy than you need. Over time, you risk burnout.
From the Gene Keys
Questions for Contemplation:
How do you anchor peace in your life?
In what area of your life are you feeling restless and impatient?
In what ways do you experience stress?
Is your body showing signs of fatigue?
Do you have a meditation or stillness practice in your life?

Understand The Mountain
BELLA EXPLAINS THE MOUNTAIN AND WEAVES THE TEACHINGS FROM THE GENE KEYS AND HUMAN DESIGN.
“This Gift has a huge impact on the emotional body. It communicates and exudes calmness throughout the aura. There have always been people in the world who remain completely unflustered by external crises – such as emotional turmoil or human conflict and war. There have always been such people among us, and these are the people of the 52nd Gift.”
– Richard Rudd, 64 Ways
Gene Key Title: The Stillpoint
Stress - Restraint - Stillness
Victim Pattern: Victim of stress
Shadow: The Phenotype of Fear (Stress)
“As far as the 52nd shadow is concerned, there are two types of people – those who cannot sit still and those who are stuck.”
Gift: Ecological Torque (Restraint)
“The more selfless your intention, the more power it will have.”
Siddhi: The Stilling of the Wave (Stillness)
“The aura of a single being manifesting this 52nd Siddhi will literally stop the thoughts of everyone in their vicinity.”
EMBRACE your shadows. Sometimes our shadows just need attention and love to be transformed. An embrace is a hug. We pull it in; we do not push away. Hug until it blends and transforms inside of you, revealing the GIFT within. The gift is then RELEASED within you and outside of you. You EMBODY the Siddhi when this essence vibrates through your whole being.

“Wisdom comes with the ability to be still. Just look and just listen. No more is needed. Being still, looking, and listening activates the non-conceptual intelligence within you. Let stillness direct your words and actions.”
