Self-Empowerment – The Relationship between Choice, Will, and Creation

This idea can seem confusing in terms of being able to actually employ it at the practical level because it involves different functions of different aspects of our own mind working in harmony with each other to produce the same outcome as an experience of reality. We have to understand the nature of our own mind in order to use it in a masterful way to create our reality. All of what we call our “higher capacities” of creation come through learning how our mind works at different stages of the same overall process, and how to not only use it in a deliberate and intentional manner, but also how to “troubleshoot” problems through a process of self-reflection that brings deeper forms of awareness.

All of life exists as a form of “feedback loop” between the inner and outer, and the upper and lower. We’re always working within and interacting with three planes of existence simultaneously as the means of both creating our reality, and then experiencing ourselves as that reality, shaping ourselves accordingly. Our mind is our soul and is not only the aspect of ourselves that’s multidimensional, but also the means and instrument through which we create intentionally to produce experiences of ourselves. When we remain unaware of our “true nature” as a higher, creative being, we experience life as happening “to us” instead of “by us”. We feel we have no real power over what happens and what path our life takes as a result. This is because while we’re associated into the subconscious, we lack the ability to create, just like animals lack the ability to determine their reality which serves to create them instead.

In order to create in an intentional manner, we need to form an understanding of the 3-fold nature of our mind, how each aspect functions in creating a greater whole, and the significance of parallel planes of a higher and lower nature. In order to form a working understanding of something we have to use a model in order to conceptualize it. The model we form in order to “observe something in action” is not the knowledge or idea itself, but rather a demonstration of how spiritual forces serve to create through material systems that are of a complementary and corresponding nature. We have to understand what aspect of our mind plays what role in creating a unified experience of reality. Many errors come from not assigning the proper roles to the different aspects and planes on which they operate.

One of the most basic mistakes we make comes from thinking that our lower, animal subconscious is what possesses “will” and that in order to make something happen we have to produce it through some form of determination and working against what comes as purely natural events. Anytime we’re struggling to try and make something happen contrary to the current conditions and circumstances, we’re working “against” or in contradiction of natural laws. All universal laws correspond to natural laws, and all creation comes through purely natural processes. When we work by way of universal laws to create, everything comes into fruition through a process of synchronized events that seem to come naturally through their own volition. This doesn’t mean that no action on our part is required, but instead reveals the “type” and “nature” of the action required.

Three Aspects of the Mind Working on Two Parallel Planes

The 3-fold principle of the mind/soul is illustrated in Sacred Geometry by the Triad as a triangle or pyramid. This diagram illustrates how our mind operates harmoniously between two fundamental planes of existence, often referred to as the “higher and lower plane” of the same reality which acts to unify them into a single reality. If we draw a horizontal line about 3/4 of the way up the triangle, we form the “capstone” of the pyramid as the higher plane and the mind of that plane which exists in a unified (single) state. As the “one mind” descends into the lower plane, it separates from itself, dividing and regenerating itself to form two aspects of itself as polar opposites that are complementary in nature and necessary in order to create an “experience of itself” as another.

Duality is required in order to produce the “appearance” of a self and another, an inner and outer, and as the means of acquiring “knowledge” of yourself which only comes through experience. The Astral Plane represents the plane of “knowledge” that’s only acquired through experience. We descend into a body that’s located within time and in a specific set of conditions and circumstances, forming an inner self and outer world necessary in order to “experience” ourselves “as” certain qualities expressed through a specific personality. This law is represented by the primary Law of the Monad, which is represented as a dot within a sphere. The dot is concentrated energy that produces the appearance of an outer reality as a holographic projection or emanation.

All material manifestation is comprised of “light” as photons which exist simultaneously as “both” a particle and wave. Our entire outer reality is a projection of our own mind on a higher level, and is contained fully within our higher mind as a “mental construct”. What we refer to as the “mind” is the “organizing principle” that “charges” matter of the material plane with a “frequency” that has both a pattern and self-organizing mechanism inherent in it that acts to organize light into “coherent fields of consciousness” as a harmonious unification of polar energies.

The mind operates through a hierarchical structure as ordered planes of existence that vary in density as different frequencies that vibrate at different rates and modes, similar to a musical scale of octaves. The Human soul of the higher mind exists on a “higher” plane than the lower mind of the material body, and is the aspect that orders, organizes and animates the entire lower one, forming a “singularity”. It oversees and orchestrates all the activities of the “entire” lower plane, and is the aspect that causes new formations on the material plane through an act of “will”. All of what we call “willpower” as the ability to “create” is conducted by our self on a higher plane and comes by way of the “whole reality” through a natural sequence of correlated events. It brings change as a harmonious movement of the entire material reality by introducing new ideas into the subconscious of our own lower mind that’s also shared with all of humanity and the Natural world of the Earth’s plane. What we call “oneness” of the material world is due to the fact that we all share the same “group mind” of the subconscious.

Within the material plane of formation, the subconscious is the aspect that produces a material manifestation out of “ideas” that it’s given by the higher mind. The subconscious is the feminine aspect of the mind that conceives of the ideas projected into it by the masculine aspect, and gestates it through a process that adapts it harmoniously with the current conditions and circumstances and births it as a material manifestation. As an idea is formed internally and magnetized with sensation and emotion, it forms into a pattern used for organizing the outer sphere of reality to be of the same idea and produces a certain “type” of experience as a metaphorical correspondence of that idea.

As the unified mind of the upper, causal plane divides itself in order to regenerate in the lower plane, it still exists in a polar state of equilibrium, and comes into the material body as the subconscious pregnant with the self-conscious, which it births through a process of adaptation, growth, and development. The self-conscious aspect of the mind is latent within the subconscious as its potential for self-creation within the body. In our initial state as a child only our subconscious is active and creating and we develop naturally as a part of our family and immediate environment. We’re born into an unconscious state where we lack all awareness of our true self which is what’s creating our entire material reality as an experience of ourselves within a certain matrix of dynamic relationships. The self-conscious is birthed spontaneously as a growth process where we “come into ourselves” and begin forming our identity as we mature and become an adult.

It’s the feminine aspect of our subconscious that’s a part of the Earth’s Soul of material reality and is the aspect of ourselves that “manifests” an idea as an outer experience of reality. While the subconscious is the powerhouse of the material plane and organizes our outer reality to be metaphorically the same as our inner reality, it lacks the inherent ability to think rationally, make decisions, and intentionally “seed itself” with a “new idea” to create as a reality. It births the rational self-conscious aspect as its own masculine counterpart that has the ability to reason, analyze, and make decisions based on its own calculations. The masculine, self-conscious mind has the ability to “seed” its own feminine aspect with its decisions, but it’s often almost completely unaware of how to do it. The subconscious only “takes in” and manifests the ideas given to it by the self-conscious which it then communicates to the higher mind.

 Our self-conscious, which is the self-aware aspect that perceives the outer creation of our subconscious, draws all its ideas as thoughts from within the group mind of the collective unconscious and forms most all of our “thoughts” from whatever we’ve been taught, and acts out whatever “relationship dynamics” we’ve been conditioned to in an automatic fashion. Most of our thoughts come automatically and are formed out of memories of some kind. When we rely on this aspect of our conscious mind, we simply create by seeding our subconscious over and over with memories of the past, and we use our creative power to create more of the past in the present.

Our self-conscious perceives the outer world created by our own subconscious and creates experiences of ourselves through the reality of our own making. This aspect, which is birthed fully within the physical body and experiences itself as the “personality” of the body, doesn’t realize that it’s also an aspect of a higher mind and is bestowed with the ability to create itself and its reality in whatever way it wants, and instead usually lives out its entire life from within a primarily unconscious state. This aspect of the mind gains “realization” of its own creation as the outer correspondence to its own inner thoughts and has the ability to make “new decisions” about how it wants to experience itself. As we gain new realizations about ourselves through our self-created experiences, they serve the purpose of making us self-aware and we can learn how to modify them through the active decision to work with our own thoughts.

Both masculine aspects of the same mind require the feminine aspect they share in order to actively create in new ways. The active requires the equivalent passive component to act as a “receiver”. The subconscious is the “medium” through which the active components of the upper and lower mind communicate with one another. As we make a new decision for what we want to actively create and experience, we shape that idea into a possible reality in our imagination (womb), where it’s communicated to the higher mind of Will. As the higher mind receives the sensory image as a “metaphor” for creating, it then injects that idea into the subconscious of the Earth’s plane, where it’s organized into a sequence of correlated events that bring it about naturally as an inherent part of our outer reality. But when it begins formulating as a corresponding part of our outer reality we have to recognize it as such, and make more decisions to “act on it”. As the ideas that we “request” through decisions begin formulating we have to resist the habitual tendency to discount them or blow them off as not being what we wanted and enter into a metaphorical relationship with them by actively engaging in their continued creation.

In a similar fashion, our higher mind is always injecting archetypal ideas into our subconscious as a means of administering karma as universal justice. These come as mental impressions that form inner visions of a particular type of experience that don’t come from memories obtained in this lifetime. When visions come as an inner voice out of nowhere, where nothing externally served to produce it, we’re given insight into what’s coming so we can prepare for it. These events seem to come outside of or in spite of our conscious decisions sometimes, because they’re providing us with the flip-side of our own actions from a previous time and life. This allows us to realize that what we perceive as another is actually our “self” as an expanded version. Our perception of others and reality is actually an extension of our self as we exist on a higher level of unity. We’re always acting “on ourselves” through our perception of our self as another.

There’s only One of Us

As we begin realizing this, we start waking up to the true nature of things and begin creating in a more responsible and compassionate way. Whatever we “do to another” we’re actually doing to ourselves on a higher level. In a unified state all creation comes as “patterns” produced through a “cause and effect relationship” where we play every role in creating a “holistic experience of our Self”. Our entire outer reality is produced as a correspondence to our inner reality. Everything that we do in the outer world through activity of some kind, we first do inwardly by thinking about it and running the consequences it’ll produce through our mind, making a decision of some kind regarding it. When we act in a compulsive and automatic way without thinking, we’re then provided with the “realization” of what we created while in an unconscious state through the choices and actions we took. This provides us with feedback that allows us to modify our process until we produce the results we intended to.

By reflecting on our life and grasping the full ramifications of the “cause and effect relationship” between being and doing, we can begin making the adjustments necessary to create in a more conscious and purposeful way. Once we begin realizing that no one is actually doing anything “to us”, but are simply stimulating us in a way that causes us to do it to ourselves, first as our thoughts and emotions, and then as our outward actions, we can begin seeing and realizing that we are the ones who are in fact creating our life to be the way it is, and we can make new decisions for ourselves that we administer by how we seed our own imagination. We can begin learning how to create from a self-aware and awake state. As we begin realizing that our outer world is comprised of our own psychological aspects, most of which we’re unaware of, we can gain tremendous insights into our own psyche and unhealed aspects of ourselves, and act on ourselves in a precise and deliberate manner to correct our own errors.

 Once we understand the dynamic nature of our own mind and how we create experiences of ourselves, we’re provided with the tools as universal laws for turning an unconscious process into a conscious and fully self-aware process of creation. As we gain self-realization through the outer mirror of our own inner mind, we learn the lesson it provides, and we begin developing our ability to use our mind in a much more proficient and deliberate way. We can use all of our experiences to become aware of our unconscious tendencies, and bring them into a harmonious state as a result. Through self-realization of our outer awareness as a mirror of our inner self, we can become conscious creators of our own life journey. We can learn how to utilize every aspect of our mind to produce a unified whole as the harmonious synchronization of all aspects of ourselves. As we wake up to our true self and creative abilities, we enter into our higher consciousness and perceive reality as a whole conducted from a higher plane of “true” self-awareness and realization.

The Nature of the Subconscious – The Unified Mind of the Material Plane

We often hear sayings about “oneness” and everything being one, living in unity with Nature and each other, and so on, yet this idea seems to contradict the nature of our actual experience as our perception of the outer world and others. One of the most prevalent principles that’s always operating at the fundamental level of creation, is the Law of Paradox. In just about all of the occult sciences what we refer to as “reality” is called an “illusion”, yet this idea is also confusing because we don’t know for sure what that means. Confusion usually comes from the fact that most don’t have a true understanding of the nature of their own “mind” and how it acts to organize, form, and animate the entire material world as a form of dynamic mental construct or living matrix. This is a very important principle to grasp with a deep sense of understanding that will not only transform the way you look at the world, but will serve as a fundamental key that connects everything else in a way that makes total sense from an intuitive perspective.

The most basic principle that precedes all others and acts as the means for birthing all others by laying the foundation out of which they spontaneously unfold, is the “trinity”. The trinity, also called the Triad, represents the triune, threefold nature of the mind and soul. The idea of the mind and soul are synonymous and both refer to the invisible aspect of our being out of which material reality emerges as its offspring. The mind is an aspect of the soul and can be thought of as the “organizing mechanism” or electromagnetic field that produces an etheric-material form out of the blueprint of cosmic memory. The soul is comprised of a dynamic living matrix of memory that’s cohesive and is used to produce a consistent experience of reality as a relationship between all seemingly different aspects that form its constitution. As the soul moves from one plane of density to another, it propagates by dividing or halving as a means of self-generation (mitosis). All parts contain the essence as information of the whole in its potential state (holographic principle), and serve to birth it systematically on the lower plane as a growth and development process of self-expression. The higher planes contain the lower planes in their entirety and act to oversee and orchestrate them. This produces what seems like a unified reality that’s “experienced” through the fundamental principle of Polarity (Dyad).

The higher soul-mind projects into the lower plane of self-awareness through the regenerative process of propagation. As the higher soul divides in order to inhabit the lower plane, it’s birthed into the body in a unified state where the subconscious contains “within it” the seeded potential of the self-conscious aspect of the same mind, which the subconscious then births through a gradual growth process as a kind of awakening of the self within the material body. This self-aware aspect of the subconscious forms what we commonly call the consciousness that appears to arise from the brain.  Brain consciousness is what allows us to perceive and experience ourselves exclusively from within and “as” a body, and as a result, we come to identify almost exclusively with our material existence. This forms what has typically been referred to (inappropriately) as the “ego”, with the idea of the ego and identity also being synonymous, which means we get our “sense of self” through experiences created as a “personality” within a specific location, conditions, and set of circumstances within the material world.

       The subconscious mind can be thought of as the feminine aspect that’s born into the world pregnant with the masculine aspect of the self-conscious (self-aware) mind. The subconscious, containing the self-conscious aspect in its “potential” state, grows and evolves it through a process of adaptation that modifies it according to its genetic make-up, life conditions, specific circumstances, family and environmental situation, which all combine to form a unique variation of the same essential nature (soul). Much like the four seasons, we’re born into the world exclusively in our subconscious, which is group oriented and perceives itself as being an essential part of its family unit, and develops completely out of an unconscious state until around 7 years old, where the self-conscious begins gradually emerging as self-awareness that perceives itself as an individual apart from its parents and siblings, and comes into a fully active state at around 13 or 14 (puberty). Puberty is the age when we begin thinking and making decisions for ourselves and developing our identity as an image of ourselves attained through experimenting with different ways of being. Our self-conscious mind of outer awareness becomes our dominate state at around the age of 21. As a fully mature adult, around the age of 28 (growth takes place in 7 year cycles) we are operating and functioning almost exclusively out of our masculine, body-aware consciousness, and often lose all true awareness of our subconscious.

The subconscious is the same aspect of the mind we share with all of Nature which operates almost exclusively out of instinct. Instinct exists as a “field of information” that’s organized through a process of classification where each species is only able to access what’s meaningful for their growth, learning, and survival.  This field of organized information that’s shared by all life on the planet is what was used to construct what’s referred to as the first or “original creation”. It forms the objective reality we all share in common and play a dynamic role in. This shared reality formed by the “group mind” of the “collective unconscious” lays the foundation as the basis for us as humans, bestowed with the ability to create using our mind, to continue creating out of by producing unique and personalized versions of reality through our very “perception” of it.Our mind is shaped out of attributes and memories that form our “mental paradigm” which is  used as a kind of filtering system that sorts and organizing information into unique variations through our very perception of it. Every person has a unique collection of memories that form their mental model, and we can only “see” in an situation what “matches” our model.  

All of us start off by being conditioned to the reality of the group mind being acted out on different levels through our family, society, and the world, all of which form a dynamic series of correspondences to each other as what we can think of as smaller fields nested within greater fields of the same nature. As our self-conscious mind comes into active expression and we begin thinking and creating ourselves to be a unique individual, we form new perceptions of the same outer reality that causes us to experience it in new ways. The material forms themselves don’t change, but rather how they “appear to us” changes. What we notice and include, and what we ignore and exclude, begins forming new ideas about the same thing that changes how we experience them. As we experience the world around us in new ways, we simultaneously begin experiencing ourselves in new ways, which works to begin transforming us based on how we build our identity around whatever it is we associate with. As adults, everyone looking at the same thing or that’s a part of the same event, will see and experience it in a way that’s unique to them as their own creation. We’re always taking what exists as a universal theme and general idea and using it as the means to create a personalized version that’s unique to us.

        A fundamental paradox exists as polarity between higher and lower planes where they mirror each other as complementary opposites. In the lower planes, the “group mind” exists as a species where an entire group of individuals are of the same mind or programming, and act as a unified whole through habitual behaviors. The only thing that makes them different or distinguishes one from another, outside of slight genetic differences that alter their similar appearance, is their personality. They possess no actual creative ability in terms of choice and will, and don’t have a sense of self-awareness. In higher planes the opposite is true. The group mind of the Macrocosm is comprised of archetypes in their potential, unformed state which can be used willfully to self-create as a unique individual that’s apart from the group mind. The object here is to use your higher capacities to create yourself in a very deliberate and intentional manner by intentionally choosing which qualities you want to develop in yourself, then, embodying them and bringing them into expression “as” a natural part of you. With our higher capacities we can reason, evaluate and judge, and make decisions about who we want to be, then act out our decisions in an disciplined manner through willpower.

Our true ancestors, represented in history as the realm of the “gods” is a society of highly specialized and uniquely talented individuals who, because they’re self-contained sovereign beings with a universal identity that’s not determined by a single personality or governed by society of the lower group mind, act in a harmonious and cooperative manner to create on a larger scale. When you’re not dependent on someone or something outside of yourself to tell you who you are through the relationship you form with them, there’s no need or desire to “take” or “acquire” what’s not already within you. For this reason, beings of higher consciousness are highly unique as individuals and almost completely self-contained and autonomous, unaffected by the drama being played out on the lower planes. From a higher perspective of complete detachment from the passions and delusions of the lower planes, one can easily impose an influence on the group mind by interacting in a way that serves the higher good of everyone involved. As long as we have a “need” for someone else to be and act a certain way, we’re being controlled and therefore “determined” by them. Once we can be apart of any situation without needing anything from it or needing to somehow control it, we experience ourselves as we really are on the higher plane of divine consciousness.

Energetic Model of the Mind

A vibration results from a “mental construct” that electrifies, animates, and organizes matter (as light-essence) into distinct patterns. We say that every “thing” moves and vibrates at a certain rate producing a natural phenomenon we perceive as reality, yet things are originally produced by the mind itself through a mental construct as thought. The mind itself is what first acts to organize light into material form in the mind’s eye of the imagination as an “internal representation” of an idea. As we think we turn ideas into internal realities. Our thoughts come as words we speak to ourselves internally where we shape Astral Light into the reality inherent in the “meaning” of the words. Once an idea is shaped into an imaginary form with sensory detail, it’s magnetize with our own vitality, causing it to begin vibrating at the frequency associated with the form, and it “draws in” (acts as a magnet) cosmic forces of the same vibratory frequency, causing it to ultimately take on a life of its own. Once an electromagnetic field (etheric blueprint) is created of an idea as a mental construct, it acts to organize the outer reality to match the inner representation. We use the thematic, symbolic inner idea as a holographic pattern to orchestrate the events of our life and how things appear to us through our perception of them. Our mind is literally a lens that we look through that determines what we see and don’t see.

In the higher regions of consciousness, ideas exist as archetypal themes that have names. When these names are spoken internally as thought, they form internal images of the ideas as they’re conformed through the mental paradigm and personality of the individual acting as a receiver and transducer for the universal idea. Once the idea is drawn into the mind of the receiver, it’s adapted to their paradigm, and modified into a new variation of the same overall idea. We reshape everything  producing a unique formula of properties that turns it into a form of hybrid. We construct a mental image out of internal light that becomes a form of “empty shell” or vehicle for spirit as an animating force to “enter into” and give it life. The mind produces an invisible electromagnetic field that acts to organize neutral matter as particles of light (photons) into vibratory patterns (essence) as holograms. Our mind as a “holographic model” acts as a kind of “parent pattern” (prototype) for producing an infinite number of offspring as fractal patterns of the same nature and kind.

The Relationship of Thought, Sensation, and Emotion

       When an idea is concentrated on and developed into a detailed version with sensory attributes, it elicits an emotional response of the same or equivalent nature. The emotion that’s of the same nature as the idea acts as the shaping mechanism that adapts it to a specific set of conditions and circumstances as a way of expressing it appropriately within the present reality. The thought as a virtual reality stimulates and informs the etheric body (of organized stable light) which acts to operate the endocrine system of the material body through electrical impulses that select and release equivalent hormones that produce and regulate the chemistry of the body to be of the same state as the idea. Thoughts stimulate emotions, which stimulate our entire nervous system and alter the chemistry of our body to match the nature of the thought and serve as a template for producing a corresponding outer reality. As we think, feel, and emote, we adjust every aspect of our physical body and chemical makeup to actively express our thoughts through correlating perceptions, behaviors and actions. We’re always adjusting our body to prepare for the reality of our thoughts.

As we form sensory images of reality in our imagination and form an emotional response to that reality, we simultaneously program our subconscious and send telepathic communication to the subconscious mind of everything around us, altering its state through influence, and affecting how information is organized to produce our outer perception of the same idea as a way of experiencing it. Our subconscious is “experiential in nature”, meaning it runs off of memories of actual experiences, and is emotionally driven. We form programs for our subconscious to create by vividly imagining ideas as sensory realities that are emotional in nature to produce a form of “virtual memory”. The subconscious uses memory as thematic patterns for organizing the outer world of the instinctual group mind to match the internal world of thought.

       As we concentrate on an idea, we tune ourselves to the vibration of the idea where we not only act as the receiver for more of the same type of ideas, but also become the means for expressing that idea to create a reality out of it. As we create a reality out of an idea, we simultaneously create a “sense ourselves” through the experience we have within that reality and form our identity around it. Ideas as vibratory frequencies are transmitted and received through resonance and sympathetic induction. The holographic principle operates by reproducing the same pattern as a “metaphorical theme” on multiple planes and scales simultaneously. Whatever pattern as a thematic idea we form and dwell in internally programs our outer reality with that same pattern on a larger scale. This works according to the same principle of mitosis where a single cell programmed with the same DNA, divides and regenerates to produce a replica of itself, that allows for a perception of itself as “another”. Each cell is essentially comprised of the same nature and then “specializes” by slightly re-configuring the same basic information in order to play a unique part in an even greater whole. Just as the body is constructed using a etheric  blueprint for the body as a whole, that tells each cell how to differentiate in order to play a unique function within a certain part of the body, our entire reality is structured according to the same process.

The same ideas we form internally become the perceptual lens as a etheric blueprint that we look through to perceive the same idea in the outer world as a correspondence. As we think we tune ourselves to the reality of our thoughts and “become” by way of that reality as a self-produced experience that forms a personal memory of it. The universal idea provides the parental pattern for producing an infinite number of fractal patterns of the same nature as its offspring. It resonates with the same information as complementary patterns in the outer world, and through sympathy re-configures the information it’s comprised of, changing how it appears to us as our perception of it. All of what we call reality is produced by our perception of it. Though we all share the same basic outer reality we all reshape it into a a slightly different reality of our own making.

We are All One

So to say we’re “all one” exists, like all ideas, as a dual-polar idea that forms a fundamental paradox. We are all of the same group mind of the subconscious that’s a fundamental part of the same universal reality. Like the plants and animals, we’re a part of a species that lives out of an unconscious state whose only sense of individuality comes as differences in our personality and lifestyle. Where we act as a mindless vessel for expressing whatever it is we’ve been taught and learn through various forms of entertainment, and where we act in a harmonized manner as a group to produce the same reality as a culture and society. Where there’s no actual individuality or true creativity and we’re simply given ideas that we express automatically and live out of as the means of creating ourselves. In the lower, material planes of density, the universal mind expresses as a group through a basic form of instinct born out of a primary unconscious state that lacks any true awareness of itself apart from that group.

At the same time, as humans, we are all a part of a higher kingdom of creative intelligence that operates willfully to create the individual. This is the realm of archetypes that are used as qualities and characteristics in different formulas that form a unique variation that expresses to create a unique reality. This idea is illustrated in the archetypes of the Zodiac as qualities and attributes that we all share in common in varying degrees and measure as universal consciousness that we’re all comprised of. In the realm of the higher mind of self-awareness, choice, and will, we draw from the universal in order to produce ourselves as a unique individual. In this level we exist apart from the group consciousness in the fundamental sense, and do not create ourselves based on others and our environment, but based exclusively on what we choose to draw into us from within. We think for ourselves, form our own decisions, consciously and deliberately direct our actions, and cultivate autonomy in everything we do. Here we are fully responsible for who we are, what we do, and who we become. There is no emotion to control or influence our thoughts, forming illusions in place of objective reality. We don’t experience guilt, shame, anger, joy, arousal, seduction, and the various forms of passions and desire that plague the material realm and act in a subliminal way to control and determine us through emotional states.

        These two worlds exist as a fundamental part of our nature represented by both the subconscious group mind and the self-conscious individual mind. The two aspects of the mind we have come to refer to as the heart and brain consciousness, or feelings and intellect, both of which are an inherent part of higher consciousness in an balanced state of harmony. In higher states of consciousness, objective intelligence forms all of our natural and self-initiated behaviors. We program our subconscious mind with thoughts that aren’t distorted by passions and desires. In this state, we’re conscious of the fact that our outer awareness is simply witnessing and experiencing the material reality of inner awareness produced by the subconscious. Here we operate according to the universal laws that govern both planes and use the masculine intellect to impregnate the feminine sensory mind to produce material reality as their offspring. We realize that what we’re experiencing as an outer reality is produced by our own imaginary thoughts concentrated on consistently with emotional intensity.

All of us as humans, with no exceptions, create our own experiences of what we call reality based on the thoughts and feelings we’ve been programmed with and continue to think about in a repetitive manner. Most of which are purely a product of our own conditioning and our tendency to live out of reactive emotional states and primal needs. Most people have been given all their thoughts by someone else through some form of teaching and learning which they then mistake as being their own. This is because the subconscious works by adapting ideas to the ever-changing outer world to produce corresponding variations of them. We mistake these variations of modified ideas as being original and self-generated because they appear to be somewhat unique from what we learned. We imagine that we think in an original way because our mind is always generating our thoughts out of a memory base. They only seem as if they our own thoughts because we live out of them as the fundamental means of experiencing ourselves and structuring our reality in a consistent way.

       Truly original thoughts only come from higher realms where originality exists as the potential for creating within the lower planes of instinct. They come through a process of “tuning into and downloading information” as ideas that were not and could not be produced out of our personal memory base. We tune into these ideas in the “ether” as the unified field of higher consciousness by either concentrating on an idea in an in-depth and prolonged manner, or by “wondering” about something. As we “wonder” about something, we form an inquiry as a “desire” to know that connects us to the answer. All questions and their answers are polar opposites of the same idea. As we concentrate with an open, curious mind (that doesn’t take an attitude of already knowing), we penetrate the depths of the known world and enter into the unknown, where ideas pop into our mind out of nowhere and begin spontaneously unfolding as a realization.

Whatever we form a desire for and intentionally seek out, we tune ourselves too internally and connect with that same idea externally. Ideas come to us as a form of inspiration that brings deeper insights into their true meaning and potential for creating realities. We act as the receiver for information and knowledge that existed outside of our paradigm and current life memories. In this manner mysteries are penetrated, secrets become known, and we touch on the unknown through the inner faculty of our own mind. We become the means through which higher knowledge comes into the world and finds appropriate expression that serves to benefit the greater good of everyone. We connect to our true origins as higher beings capable of impregnating material form with higher knowledge to create in a truly original and novel way.

The Law of the Mind – Our Character, Nature, and Quality of Consciousness

The Law of Mentalism, which is the first principle of the seven primary principles of Hermetic Sciences, basically states that all of life and reality as we know it is a product of the mind. That Mind is all there is. Everything exists as a mental construct or dynamic concept contained within the mind. The outer reality and world of appearances is produced as an expression of the mind as its nature and character. It states that Spirit is the mind or invisible creative intelligence, as the substance we call subtle energy, matter, material form, and the phenomena of life. All material life forms are accompanied by an invisible electromagnetic energy field that organizes its form giving it distinct qualities and characteristics, and animates it with natural biological processes and behaviors as a means of using it as a vehicle for expression of different levels, degrees, and qualities of consciousness. Thought, like the mind that produces it, is invisible and acts to shape (astral) light as substance into forms, images, and living scenarios through the faculty of the imagination. What we think and imagine determines how our outer reality “appears” to us as the expression and correspondence of our inner nature or character. Our mental paradigm is formed as a result of thoughts and experiences as we go along in life, all of which are created as the expression of our mental paradigm, and so it acts as a feedback loop of cause and effect, or action that produces a reaction, and we’re always acting “on ourselves to create ourselves”. All perception of the outer world is a projection of our mind, which then forms “how” we experience (interpret) the events of our life, which in turn forms our memories which are systematically integrated to modify the structure of our mind. Our character as our inner nature is our mind as a paradigm or mental model as a quality, degree, and level of consciousness. All feeling sensation and thought arises from our mind as the invisible electromagnetic energy field that envelops, inhabits, and gives life to our body. Our body serves as a vehicle for our mind to create within the material world. Thoughts form as the demonstration of our inner nature, and is the natural expression and projection of our mind, and what acts to shape us by way of the experiences we create through our perceptions. The mind works “on itself” through outer projections that are then reflected back to it, stimulating those same qualities in our inner nature, and developing us by way of them. The outer is formed as a correspondence to the inner, then acts to stimulate the inner with the same qualities being expressed through a form of return, reaction, or self-reflection. What we put out as an outer expression, stimulates its polar opposite in everything and everyone else, and is returned to us in its polar state, which acts to give us more of the same feeling as an inward experience, that’s actually a response to our own mental projections. All laws and principles are given as a “system of laws” that produce a systematic operation or creative process of a larger, unified process, and are given in a specific order to demonstrate the nature of the creative process involved as an unfolding, and so they should never be looked at or analyzed individually as though they’re independent of each other. Each one systematically emerges out of the preceding one which serves to activate it as a part of or natural function of the same creative process. All actions and operations of the Spirit-Mind are creative in nature, and all creation comes from a form of growth process of self-regeneration. The primary law contains all the other laws as latent potential that are activated and spontaneously emerge out of each other as the function, operation or set of behaviors of the one birthing it. So the order in which laws and principles are given is important to the understanding of the preceding one as its function, as well as contains all the preceding ones as an accumulative process that initiates and lays the foundation, or provides the necessary means for it to emerge in a spontaneous fashion, while containing all the ones proceeding out of it in their potential state. Laws emerge from each other as they move between planes of existence in a descending movement from higher, purely spiritual or invisible planes, to a lower material plane as a form of coagulation, organizing and solidifying, or building process, and then enfold and return back into each other through an ascending movement, disintegrating the material form and existence back into a spiritual, invisible one. There’s always a dynamic and self-perpetuating unfolding and enfolding, expansion and contraction, outward breath and inward breath, an electric and magnetic polar component to the same movement. So when contemplating principles they should be seen and interpreted as a dynamic process of creation and disintegration, of life and death that moves from one state to another, transcending multiple planes that are all dynamically connected and the outer growth of each other. The first principle of the Mind, is actually the unification of three principles into one. There are 10 primary principles (numbered 0 – 9), but the first three form the mind as three-fold in nature and is what gives birth to or makes possible the other seven. All principles form correspondences with numbers, letters, and symbolic images, and the Dyad, the first principle, is actually a combination of zero, one, and two, which form the Vesica Pisces as the “womb of the Universe”, and is considered the “parent number” because it gives birth to the other seven which spontaneously emerge out of it as offspring. The Dyad is the three primary principles, also called the supernal or trinity which originate on a higher plane, that form the material or individual mind, also symbolized by the triangle or pyramid, because it spans two dimensions as the One that enters into the lower material realm where it divides into polar aspects of itself as masculine and feminine, forming an electromagnetic field that’s self-perpetuating. Out of no-thing (zero) comes everything. The One divides and becomes dual as complementary polar opposites that serve to balance each other as a form of perpetual motion, or stimulus – response, cause and effect, being and doing, and passive and active. The first of the seven is the Principle of Mentalism, the second is the Principle of Correspondence, the third, the Principle of Vibration, the fourth the Principle of Polarity, Fifth the Principle of Rhythm, the sixth Principle Cause and Effect, and the seventh, the Principle of Gender. The Mind is the ALL because everything emerges out of it as its expression and creation. The Mind exists as both the Micro and the Macro, or the Universal Mind that produced what we call the original creation as the Natural world or what we can call our “shared reality”, which is objective and neutral in nature, and the individual mind that then acts to reshape the objective reality into a personal creation as a subjective reality that’s formed as a correspondence to their mental paradigm as a basic form of self-expression. The mind exists as a mental paradigm or model that forms our individual reality as a correspondence, or to be of the same nature and with the same likeness (qualities as polar opposites) as we are. The movement between extreme poles of the same quality of consciousness, forms the Principle of Vibration as perpetual motion between positive (masculine) and negative (feminine) poles, or from the center outward to an invisible parameter as a range or frequency, that projects outward, then folds back into itself and returns to the center, in a cyclical, rhythmic movement, or as a form of stimulus that produces a response between the inner and the outer, as a form of cause and effect through resonance and sympathetic induction that forms coherence by balancing the inner with the outer. The mind forms a relationship as perpetual movement between polar opposites of the same quality, character, or idea. Polarity provides a range of movement as a gradient scale between opposite aspects of the same idea that together forms the contrast and relationship necessary to create a common or shared reality as a joint experience that requires different roles in order to play out the same idea as a story-line or joint-experience. The Principle of Rhythm is the back and forth movement between poles, the inward creating the outward by stimulating it into existence, and the outward complementary expression as a response stimulating the inner creating an experience of itself through the other. This back and forth interaction of cause and effect or an action that causes a like reaction, and the reaction becomes the action as a causal force that produces a like effect, and it goes back and forth. The Principle of Cause and Effect describing the reality of resonance as perpetual motion between extremes of the same frequency that “excite” each other into existence. The masculine and feminine aspect of the same dynamic or thematic reality necessary to create it as a joint experience, is born out of a form of passion and excitability for each other. This forms the Principle of Gender, everything, every living form, quality of consciousness, and reality has its masculine and feminine aspects, and in the plant, animal, and human kingdom, one is dominate as our sexual gender. Though each sex still has both aspects within their nature, and their sex doesn’t necessarily determine which energy is dominant emotionally and psychologically. A man can have strong feminine qualities, and a woman can display dominant masculine qualities. This creative process forms the Principle of generation, regeneration, and creation that takes us back to the first principle as the One that exists in dual aspects, which act on each other to stimulate each other into existence by external forces activating internal forces of the same nature that become outwardly expressed as a shared or unified reality. Latent and passive internal states are made active and “brought out” by exciting or vibrating them. The masculine and feminine of the same vibratory frequency “resonate” with each other, and their energy enters into and effects each other, as a form of energetic sex or procreation, that alter each others vibration and together form a new vibration as a variation (relationship), that’s created by combining aspects that they share in common as polar opposites of the same quality and character, into a unique version that serves to modify and adjust the vibration of both. Forming relationships as new combinations that modify our existing vibration is the most basic way we grow and develop new aspects of ourselves. The mind as a vibratory frequency moves between two poles as extreme opposites of the same overall pattern as a thematic reality, taking on opposite and complementary roles necessary in acting out the same idea as a drama, joint reality, or co-creation, as the substantial reality that underlies and serves to orchestrate the outward manifestation, producing the phenomena of Life as Reality. As we project onto others and our environment, we don’t act to attract or stimulate the same role or quality that we ourselves play, but the opposite role in the same dynamic necessary for producing the same reality as a joint experience that we play the complementary role in. For example, a person who is imprinted with the role of “victim”, doesn’t attract or serve to stimulate other victims, but rather attracts “victimizers” that will play the opposite role in the same dynamic that they’re identified with (vibrate at that frequency). Abused people attract and act to agitate those who will abuse them so they can play the role they’ve built their identity around. Our identity is created and expressed by the story we tell about things, about ourselves and what happened to us, about others and what they did to us, and about the way life is, which we act out unconsciously through natural behaviors that we employ. Our story forms our pattern as a vibratory frequency and mental paradigm that perfectly attracts and stimulates the person who’ll be ideal for playing the opposite role in the same life theme. We’re always the star of our movie and attracting or looking for our ideal co-star. We naturally enter into relationship with those of the same conditioning and mind-set, the same vibratory frequency and behavioral dynamics as we are. We “see” in others what’s of the same quality (dynamic) that we ourselves possess that’s the complementary opposite, or that can play the co-star in the same drama as a certain type of experience or reality. All of life is a co-creation between the inner and the outer, and between ourselves and others. Life as a reality forms a correspondence to our mental model, which is what’s creating it by perceiving it and interpreting it to give it the meaning it has, which is what we build our story about it around. All vibration forms patterns as a self-organizing feature that acts as a cause that’s forever stimulating the effect as a return or reflection of the complementary aspect that we serve as the outward expression for that we’re largely unaware of. This reality that we’re imprinted with as a story-line, reflects back to us opposite and unconscious aspects of ourselves in others, that we act to create by stimulating, though we can’t see or realize what we’re doing, because we’re not aware of our own projections and behaviors. We think that projection means we see in others (and react too) the same qualities that we possess, and while this is true, we see and stimulate the opposite aspect of the same quality, it’s polar opposite or what serves to stimulate it into activity where we form an illusion around it as our perception of reality and what’s really going on. Whatever role or drama as a story-line we’re identified with and always playing out as our natural behavior, we attract, stimulate, and enter into relationship with those who are imprinted with the same patterns – of the same vibratory frequency as a quality and mode of consciousness – that will cooperatively participate in acting it out and co-creating the same type of reality with us. We always attract and are attracted to the perfect co-star for our movie. Whatever dynamic and role we are identified with and use to form our basic perception out of as our life story or consistent type of experience, we vibrate at that frequency, and resonate with the opposite and complementary role in the same reality. Our reality is a product of our mind as our perception and interpretation, and an expression of our vibratory frequency as a quality of consciousness that forms our basic personality.

What is the “Mind?”

souls_sphere_

There’s a tendency to refer to what we call the mind as being equivalent to the brain, or the heart, or some invisible undefined term that encompasses them both. If we look at the mind through the concept of Spiritual Sciences and the Quantum model of Subtle energy, we can realize the mind as an energy field that exists in a hierarchical form as smaller, individual minds that accompany all conscious sentient beings while expanding in range and magnitude to larger mind-fields that can reach universal proportions. It’s a series of mind-fields that are nested within greater fields, which like holograms, while varying in size and magnitude, are all of the same nature and operate according to the same sets of creative Laws.

 

The mind of the individual is the energy field that surrounds and envelopes the body in an egg-like essence that we commonly call the aura or electromagnetic field that’s imbued with distinct attributes and qualities that determine how the mind functions at an individual level. It’s the essence as what we refer to as electrified plasma as resonance that informs and animates the body, imbuing it with analogous characteristics referred to as the personality, which becomes the foundation for the identity it takes on through various levels of story-telling birthed as a natural evolutionary growth process. It develops and “becomes” in stages that are the enactment and development of different inherent aspects of the same essence in a sequential manner that first establishes the foundation out of which a spontaneous growth process as actualization takes place of its own volition.

Dreaming

All of life operates as Laws that evolve through a consistent growth process of becoming fully actualized. This natural growth process is a form of unfolding in a hierarchical fashion, where one phase sets the basis out of which the next is indicated and spontaneously emerges in what seems like an effortless movement. The lower (initial) is the foundation for the higher. Just as our childhood development determines the type of adults we become. They are dependent on each other and operate independently of each other in an interdependent fashion. These planes of existence as hierarchies are referred to as kingdoms or worlds, whole planes nested within greater planes as a unified reality that are ecological. Different aspects that perform different functions yet are of the same entity as a whole interdependent system that expresses by generating a coherent reality.

 

While we can separate and analyze each aspect in order to understand the laws that govern their operation, we must always perceive it in synthesis as being a fundamental part of a holistic operation. Each part has a specialization that’s a crucial part of a whole function. It operates as parts or aspects within a greater mind, just as the individual mind operates as parts of the greater family/group mind, community mind, national/cultural mind, and ultimately universal mind.

3 selves

So the mind as viewed from the perspective of Spiritual Sciences as Subtle energy, can be thought of as individual consciousness that is self-aware, self-expressing, and self-creating all at the same time. A single thought process or act creates in a ripple fashion of expanding and including greater mind-fields, which serves to reinterpret them according to the same mind which perceives them to be of the same nature and likeness in terms of projecting our qualities, characteristics, preferences and tendencies onto them, seeing (perceiving) in them only what matches (forms correspondences) us in terms of our paradigm or vibratory frequency.

 

Our mind is a conscious field of energy as our ‘self’ that’s also the perceptual lens we look through in order to perceive everything else. Qualities and characteristics in another that are of the same nature as ours, form resonance with us, causing a reaction of some sort that stimulates us inwardly. They stand out as what we notice, give attention to, and reshape by thinking about them to form a perception of them that’s actually a correspondence to us. The creative ability of the mind is to regenerate itself as a basic means of expression. Perception itself is a form of interpretation that modifies everything as a vibrational match to ourselves in terms of perceiving them through our mental/emotional filters that conforms them to our dominant tendencies as thematic dynamics or prevalent and ongoing story-lines that we mold them into in a way that makes sense. The story we tell about them is the translation that reforms them to be like us in some way. We only see in others what first exists in us, in what is often a hidden or unknown aspect of ourselves.

Torus shape

Just as the Universal mind exists in a multitude of fragmentation’s as fractal patterns that are smaller minds of the same nature, our own mind exist in three basic aspects that have specialized functions known as the higher-self, the subconscious and conscious mind. The Higher-self is the greater mind-field which transcends into higher-dimensions of pure consciousness, while the subconscious is the body/instinctual (heart) consciousness, and the conscious mind is the brain/sensory consciousness. The Higher-self is what we commonly call the spirit-soul, the subconscious our basic personality, and the brain the creative function that forms self-awareness through it’s identity with the external world that ultimately births the ego as a result, which is the aspect of our identity that’s based on the physical realm of possessions and position, that are ultimately false in nature because they are dependent on external means in order to create a image of itself in relationship with it that are temporary and illusory in nature. All aspects of the mind form a step-down process of conscious energy creating experiences of itself in the physical realm. It’s our inner nature that forms our personality that automatically expresses through our behavior, while the conscious mind creates illusions of itself that often tell a different story from the one that they naturally demonstrate through automatic behavior that they are seemingly unaware of, and therefore assume others are fooled by the same false image that they have created as a means of re-representing themselves to be what they wish they were, instead of what they actually are. They then make the basic assumption that others perceive their false image as well, when in reality, others are only seeing what matches their paradigm as their perceptual lens or the actual behavior a person demonstrates on an ongoing basis.

human energy

Likewise, each vital organ within the body generates an electromagnetic field that has its own level of consciousness and associated functions, which operate as a part of a greater whole. Every single entity pairs off in dual aspects that mimic the electro-magnetic effect of mitosis as regeneration that multiplies in pairs of itself. The mind operates according to the same natural laws that govern all living systems. Duality and multiplicity is the fundamental nature of unity. Just as the body is comprised of billions of cells that all contain the same DNA for structuring and functions, that begin as one then divide and multiply in pairs, while migrating to different locations playing out different roles within the same body which operates as a greater single entity that’s an enclosed system.

 

Our primary consciousness doesn’t perceive the individual cells that make up our body, but only perceives itself as a whole body with a personality and identity that always perceives the world in terms of stories that play out in its mind and imagination and the feeling sensations that stimulate it from within as bodily sensations that form corresponding thoughts and emotions as a result. There’s a constant chain-reaction as a chain-of-association going on all the time, all prompted by an electrical impulse of some sort that comes from invisible forces that surround and interact with us on a constant and ongoing basis. Which ones influence us in lesser or greater proportions are based on the quality of consciousness which forms an equivalent as a vibratory frequency that not only tunes us into the thoughts and emotions prevalent on that plane that are of the same nature, but also determine what we form resonance with as the fundamental component for forming thematic realities that are of a congruent nature. Our energetic frequency as our mind-field determines what we notice in the objective outer world, where we place our attention, and how we reinterpret it as a means of using it as the basic components for telling the same type of stories that we always tell about others and the external world as an expression of our selves.

meditation_universal_portal

Reality in itself as objective, is a perception and projection of the larger Universal mind (original creation), while our subjective reality is a personal creation of our own making that creates our ‘self’ as an expression of ourselves. All perception is ultimately a form of fundamental projection that restructures it through vibratory resonance that shapes it into a new pattern as a variation that’s a co-creation of us, the individual mind, with the greater, universal mind, forming a unified realty that’s unique to us as created by us. The Universal as absolute remains the same and is neutral in nature, allowing us the ability to co-create a separate reality by how we infuse it with meaning of some sort that shapes it into a story of some kind. That story is our signature and is always composed as a reflection of our inherent style. It always has the same theme and style of story-telling, not only in terms of the story itself, but also in terms of ‘how’ we tell it.

Pineal Gland – The Spiritual Experience of Conscious Dreaming

waves

Often when we talk about envisioning, soul journeying, or spiritual experience, many don’t know for sure what it is or what the terms actually mean in the real sense. Here my goal is to simply describe the basic nature of the mystical experience in terms of the energetic hallucinations that are a natural function of the imagination when being used with greater abilities. Everybody’s experience varies to a certain degree and some have distinct personal styles of envisioning just as we have unique and varying mental perceptions of normal day-to-day reality. I am only giving a basic idea as a means of comprehending what the experience might be like.

I will give basic terminology “meaning” simply as a means of creating distinctions for greater understanding of how it actually operates. The descriptions are not the things themselves, but simply the ideas used to illustrate the nature of the experience as if you were actually having it. Anytime we are attempting to describe what lacks description, a vague approximation as a representation must always be considered and applied in the practical sense. We must get a ‘feel” for, or sense what we’re talking about. It’s only important that you understand so that you will know when you are actually having the experience. Like most forms of intuition, chances are you are doing it to a certain extent naturally as part of your human nature and simply don’t realize that’s what it is. Like most things if we don’t have some sort of direct training on or around an idea, or don’t have anybody to talk to about it, we are always left somewhat guessing and wondering, while never really knowing for sure. The more training we have, the more knowledge we gain about a subject, the more we begin seeing it all around us and know how to interact with it in a meaningful way. The first step to mastery at any level is education and obtaining knowledge that can be practiced accurately and with immediate results.

We must start by realizing that the most basic principle of the Universe is that of Evolution. Everything is in motion and a constant state of fluctuating as “becoming”. All energy and life-forms in the energetic realm of the astral plane (which we experience during meditation) move and flow through rhythmic movements that form a basic entrainment that serves to align the whole system through a natural form of rapport – resonance as energetic sympathy, where energy as information that enters into essence of some form and creates an effect. The nature of the energy as a “quality of consciousness” creates a analogous (like) form. Follow this basic procedure for starting any kind of meditation or hypnosis designed to stimulate and open the third-eye or Pineal gland.

universal mind

Sit in a reclined position or lie down in a comfortable position. Systematically relax your body through a basic relaxation technique. Then scan your body for any areas you might still be holding tension in, and consciously relax it by intending it. Tell it to relax, and then allow it. Close your eyes, and focus on your breathing, the sound of your breath, the movement of your chest up, and down, rising and falling, and notice that the air you inhale is cool and dry, and as you exhale it is warm and moist. As you begin merging with your breath, sense your heart beat. Then simply observe the rhythm of your breath with the beat of your heart, and notice that just by placing your attention on both of them, they begin forming synchronicity. Continue breathing, listening to your heartbeat and relaxing your body. Don’t try to control the process, simply allow. Inside, find the center of your head, then create a spacious feeling around it. Place your attention straight ahead betwee your eyebrows, and slightly above eye-level. You should feel a slight strain in your eyes from the angle. Just relax into it by allowing it.

Notice that in the darkness you may not see much in terms of shapes, but maybe various saturation as patterns of black to grey. There maybe be clouded areas that take on colors, or simply seem grayish against the black background. You may notice a dark spot or “hole” that either begins a swirling motion around it, or slowly forms into an eye, then fades and disappears. You may see the eye from different angles and various perspectives. You may notice pinpoints of light that resemble stars or form into constellations. They may be whitish or take on colors, or perhaps have rainbow-like halos.

eternity

Keep your attention focused in your third eye, the spot between your eyebrows in the lower part of your forehead. If it wanders, simply bring it back and continue to focus. If you find yourself allowing one of the thoughts to take hold and begin forming into a conceptual reality, simply refocus your attention to the center of your head and allow the thoughts to simply move by in a stream-like motion. Don’t try to make anything happen, or anticipate what’s going to happen, but simply allow your mind to feel spacious, vast and extremely open. Create the feeling of empty space. Imagine it like an open arena or large stage. You are not the director or writer of the play, simply the observer. The audience. You will allow whatever unfolds to entertain you. Reveal itself to you while you simply watch.

You may notice wave-like motions forming that either sweep from bottom to top, left to right or a combination of both. It may start as clouds or misty concentrations, much like nebula in space, or more like moving sensations with no real distinction. More like impressions that forms evolving patterns. You will notice some sort or a rhythmic pattern that rises up, expands into a flowing motion, fully expresses, and then dissipates. Simply watch it without attempting to control it. Create a kind of appreciation or admiration around it. Enjoy it and give it your full attention.

The movement may begin taking on prismatic colors that fluctuate and shimmer as it unfolds. The designs or patterns may begin taking on crisp, geometric patterning at the height of there expression and be a primary dominate color. These geometric patterns that are flowing in wave-like or spiraling motions may start taking on the qualities of distinct objects or features. Either primary shapes, shapes of certain objects, or distinct symbolic objects that are readily recognizable. Again, simply surrender to the flow of energy and do not attempt to control or determine it. Simply watch and allow it. Be fully present with it.

angelic being

These patterns may start forming into either images of people, animals or full images of some sort. They may be a combination of human features, mixed with animals with areas of objects or patterning of some sort. As you watch, you may notice they become more and more distinct. Continuing with the wave-like, flowing, or spiraling movement, you may notice that they evolve through various combinations of human and animalistic characteristics. They may also evolve through different age groups, races, gender or move distinctly into humans with animal parts and strange features. It may seem as if you are watching the same essence or energy cluster evolving through various lifetimes and the forms each of those lives entailed. You may seem to notice how masculine images have inherent feminine qualities and how the feminine posses masculine qualities.

Sometimes it seems like you see landscapes, places, buildings or activities of some sort. When the images become crisp and fully developed they may begin taking on a distinct holographic appearance with shimmering, fluctuating or lustrous prismatic colors. Some may seem almost recognizable as someone you know, or resemble a clear rendition of a mythological or archetypal figure. Some seem pretty, beautiful and intriguing, while others seem demonic, disturbing or grotesque. They may evolve through a series of unfoldment that includes all of them. Some appear to have gross features, shadowy qualities and glowing eyes, others resembles angels that seem powerful and passionate, more like artistic ideas. You will notice that the demonic, grotesque images do not invoke fear of any kind, but seem to almost be beautiful in a different sort of way. You will begin losing fear as a response to various life-forms. You’ll develop the ability to view beauty and ugliness with the same internal response.

As you observe these images in detail you may start noticing energy in your body. It may come as distinct sensations like a sinking feeling, bubbly, having trouble breathing, or it may be a distinct sexual arousal that follows the flowing quality of the image. You may notice certain parts of your body with distinct sensory sensations as hot, buzzy, tingly, cool, or hot inside and cold outside. You may experience arousal that moves down your legs and out the bottom of your feet in flushing, wave-like or streaking, flaring motions. You may feel a tingling sensation as energetic rushes, or feel waves of goose-bumps. You may feel what seems like pin-pricks or distinct discharges or penetration of some sort. The energy may move upwards in the same fashion. If it moves into your third-eye, your thought/visionary process it can create an erotic feeling of flushing euphoria that is similar to a low-grade orgasm. It will quicken your thoughts and noticeably seem to excite them, change their nature and the feeling quality of their expression. This is the chemical reaction to the thoughts rising in you as a natural correspondence.

soul light

If you feel sexually aroused, or almost as if you are going to have an orgasm of some sort, don’t let it freak-you out, it’s quite normal and will serve as a distinct benefit to making it a point to meditate more often. (smiling) This is the experience of what we refer to as the “kundalini” energy that resides at the base of your spine as the sexual energy that when aroused, rises up through the energetic system of the body creating an aroused sensation that promotes vitality and positive state-of-mind associated with the pleasure centers of the body that are often called “bliss”. You may even feel the sensation of being “entered” into physically and filled up if you’re a woman, or the pleasure that comes from filling up, if you’re a man. It’s the experience of merging and expanding into energetically. Keep in mind that this type of practice is what led the Sufi’s to write erotic love-poems to God, the Beloved.

The more you practice, the easier it gets, the more readily it comes, and you develop your ability to hold greater and greater amounts of physical pleasure in your body for extended periods of time without feeling overwhelmed and needing to discharge it. Like all things it takes dedicated practice over a life-time. Once you begin experiencing the benefits of deeper forms of meditation, you may become almost addicted to it. Like the endorphins as pleasure-chemistry created from exercise.

After these types of practices, you will never again wonder why Shamans and Magi’s dress the way they do, or what the Native American rituals were all about. You will understand through experience what the term “shape-shifting” means and where it came from, why it is a Universal theme. You will understand gargoyles and strange symbolic totems. Through this Universal experience of dynamic energy that has all the natural qualities that shape physical characteristics, you might even start desiring to change your personal style to take on less of a domesticated look, and instead choose a more natural, wild approach.

This practice will also help you to form immediate and natural rapport with Nature and all Living Beings. It creates the experience of feeling a deep connection to all of life. The experience itself acts to realign your whole system into a more organic and free-flowing structure. You will feel calm, confident and cultivate a kind of inner contentment. Peace of Mind that is based on passion and a devotion to all of life and Mother Earth. You will fall in love with life itself and begin rejoicing at the simplest of things. The magic of life, becomes normal. The ordinary takes on a sense of extraordinary through enhanced sensory experiences that make them seem erotically vivid and intensely alive!

Powers of the Mind: How to use your Mind to Transform Habits

We know that in order to use our mind to create experiences, we have to work by way of the laws that govern the mind. The mind operates according to these laws, and so to use it as a tool for creating in the physical sense by “operating it”, we can see these laws as giving us instructions for using our own mind in a deliberate manner. While we can easily see law in terms of “cause and effect”, or action creates an equal and like reaction, we often fail to recognize and even subtler idea as the operation of law, which is the unification of laws as aspects of the mind that produce physical reality as a “growth process” or offspring of an idea. In the mind’s ability to create or directly influence material manifestation, we are always working with the 3-fold nature of the mind as the higher conscious, the subconscious, and the self-conscious mind. In order to direct energetic processes to produce physical manifestations within our own being and self-created reality, these three aspects have to be in alignment and all working in a unified manner to produce different aspects of the same idea as a co-creation.

 
If we set a goal for ourselves that requires us to willfully produce it through behavior or actions of some sort that we deem productive and health promoting, yet the idea of it creates an “experience” of suffering and struggling in doing it, then what we actually produce as a physical manifestation is the reality that’s an equivalent correspondence to “suffering” and we continue to struggle with actually doing it. If, for instance, we decide to quit eating meat to improve our health and lose weight, yet, in refraining from eating meat, we crave it, think about it, and continue wanting it, we create an experience of being a vegetarian as hard, always craving what you can’t have, having to discipline yourself constantly, and suffering in order to do it. We continue forming positive internal representations around the pleasure of eating meat, while simultaneously associating feelings of deprivation and struggle to the idea of eating a diet void of meat.

 
How we use our mind to form an internal representation of an idea also determines how we experience that idea. It takes the idea, forms it with associated thoughts as an internal image, which triggers an emotional response to our own imagining as “body chemistry” that forms a physical manifestation as an experience of the imagined idea. Our emotions are chemistry in our body produced by hormones that alter our state, unifying the body with the mind, which produces a pronounced affect on our overall health as the energetic stimulation of chemistry which undergoes biological processes as a result of the chemistry. In this sense, the mind stimulates the body which aligns with it as a “state of mind” that bridges an idea (higher mind), with thoughts that form it in the imagination as a conceptual reality, producing and emotional response, which matches the body to the same vibratory frequency as the thoughts, and produces the behavior that acts it out, making a reality out of it.

The mind has the ability to direct the electrical and chemical processes of the body, and can transform the normal biological affect a food has in our body by the feelings, thoughts and emotions we associates to the food. This is especially true when the thoughts are about the health affects of the food on the body. Whatever belief or idea we hold about the food, for example, determines to a large extent the actual affect it produces. So if you’re trying to make behavioral changes to improve some area of your life, but you’re creating an experiencing of suffering around it by continuing to form positive and pleasurable associations to the behavior your quitting, and haven’t formed a positive association around the new behavior you’re replacing it with, and as a result you’re struggling and suffering with the idea, you’d be better off not making the change at all, because what you’re actually going to create is the reality as the physical result of your suffering.

 
Instead, by realizing this 3-fold nature of the mind which must be unified around the same idea, you can work more productively by forming an internal representation of the desired change (reality) associating very positive emotions to it that make it compelling, while also forming a negative internal representation (usually as an actual realization that’s embellished) around what you’re eliminating by replacing it with the new behavior. The mind always moves “towards pleasure” and “away from pain”. By forming a very positive idea as an experience of the desired behavior, you can create an experience of joy and empowerment in doing it. You envision the desired outcome it’s going to produce as an experience. When you think about the old behavior, it’s no longer appealing or tempting.

I used the example of a dietary change to illustrate the idea, but this pertains to any form of change you’re making in your life. You want to always notice what type of experience you’re creating in making the change. Notice what idea you’re associating to both. Notice how you present the ideas to yourself internally by how you imagine them, by how you think about them. Work to form the representations as a chain of associated ideas to one that makes the behavior you’re giving up unappealing, disgusting, repulsive or painful in some manner, while forming a very positive association to the behavior you’re replacing it with that makes it very desirable, pleasurable and rewarding.

 
Also, allow yourself to realize that any time you’re giving up a habit, and you form a heightened awareness around it as a result of working with it in a direct manner, the first thing you’ll experience is all the reasons you had for developing and maintaining the habit. As we begin eliminating it, changing what we normally do when engaging in it, we notice all the things that triggered the behavior, and in abstaining from it, we feel an awkwardness around it, because we often don’t know what else to do in its stead. We then go through a period where we miss it. When we miss something or someone, we tend to focus on all the things we liked about it, and forget the bad. But this is only a stage that will quickly pass with the implementation of new behavior in its place that becomes stimulating because it produces a new experience as a new sense of your self. Change and a sense of newness allow creativity and forming new loves instead of clinging to the outworn feeling of old ones.

 
When we decide to make a change by transforming old behaviors into new ones, we have to form in our mind the outcome or end result the change will bring. We have to form the reality of the outcome in our imagination as the experience of it. We have to set an expectation for the outcome, and direct all our actions into it. We have to prepare for it, anticipate it, and rehearse it. We have to always think of it for the reward it’ll bring once it’s a reality, and recognize that we produced it through our active use of choice and will power. We chose the change as an outcome, formed it by imagining it as a possible reality in our mind, giving us the strategy for creating it, then willfully acted it out, giving us a new experience of ourselves as the true creator of our own life. This is the true power of your mind to create your reality, while self-creating through the same means.

 

The Formula for Producing Change:
1. Decide what change you’re going to produce as an outcome or actual reality.

 
2. Form it in your imagination as an actual experience – what are you seeing, hearing, feeling, smelling, tasting, and what are you telling yourself about it?

 
3. Associate positive feelings and emotions to it. Form a series of associated ideas to it that are all positive and compelling.

 
4. Create an affirmation as an anchor that you can use to redirect your mind in the moment to form the desired focus necessary for the new behavior.

 
5. Realize what actions you need to take to actually do it or prepare for it.

 
6. Recognize what behavior it’ll be replacing and what internal representation you have associated with it that makes it desirable. Reform that representation by associating it with negative ideas and sensations that make it repulsive or painful somehow.

 
7. Notice all the times when you have a tendency to do this behavior. What prompts it, acts to trigger it, or what events cause you to naturally engage in it.

 
8. Imagine these prompts and events and create in your mind doing the new behavior instead, associating the new behavior with the same triggers that produced the old behavior. Run the new behavior as a mental rehearsal associated to the same triggers as the old behavior, over and over until it becomes automatic and natural.

 
9. When or if you start missing the old behavior, redirect your mind to all the reasons for giving it up, and think about what you’re going to do instead and how much better its going be.

 
10. Then, commit to the practice.

 
11. If you relapse at any point and give in to the old habit, don’t feel disappointed or beat yourself up, or continue with old thinking you failed with the new. Simply refocus your mind, pick up where you left off, and continue practicing. At some point, the temptations will begin residing and you’ll start to forget about them. Or if they do come up, they begin taking on an abstract feeling and they’re easy to resist.

 
12. Sometimes relapsing is a good thing, because in doing the old, it actually makes you feel bad.

 

Don’t expect change to come over night. Creating by transforming is a process that requires focus, patience, and perseverance. You have to dedicate yourself to constant and never ending growth. You have to develop a mindset of being empowered in your own life by being able to consciously determine your destiny through your ability to create the life you desire by making more conscious decisions while exercising the willpower necessary to produce them as a reality.
