The consciousness rainbow: an explication of Rogerian field pattern manifestations.

Abstract

The consciousness rainbow is a heuristic designed to be used in nursing practice in conjunction with the personalized nursing practice model based on Rogers' science of unitary human beings (Rogers, 1970, 1990). The first phase in practicing nursing is pattern manifestation appraisal, followed by deliberative mutual patterning. This article presents pattern manifestation appraisal by describing patterns associated with "being," "well-being," and "not being." Clients who enter well-being via another dimension are encouraged to experience "being" in the present as a step toward genuine well-being.
