Understanding the Psychological Basis of our Spiritual Quest

       One of the most fundamental truths that we need to honestly comprehend in order to learn how to consciously create our self and our life, is in realizing the true relationship between the mind and body. While there’s a fundamental misconception that the body somehow “gives rise to” the mind, partially due to the fact that there are three basic aspects of the mind and soul, one of which is oriented to what we call “body consciousness” as our subconscious, the fact is the mind is what produces and maintains the life of the body. The body, including the brain and heart, and all “matter” for that fact, is comprised of light (photons) that’s organized into a physical form producing a “house or temple” for the mind as the soul to inhabit and use in order to express, create, and evolve itself to higher and lower levels of consciousness. Matter as the body is passive and receptive in nature, and acts to draw in and bond with the energetic essence of the mind through resonance.

       The mind, like the soul (which is synonymous) isn’t a fixed form like the body it inhabits, but is a living, breathing field of energy that’s constantly evolving and reformulating itself by absorbing and integrating energy of a similar nature to it from the atmosphere around it and from parallel planes of both a higher and lower nature. The mind sets the vibratory frequency of the body, which acts as a tuner, receiver, transducer, and transmitter of energy as knowledge and ideas of various sorts. We’re designed to “receive knowledge” based on what quality as a state of mind we embody and become. We tune into and merge with planes of knowledge through resonance by becoming “like” the qualities as consciousness of that plane.

       Our state of mind is something that we have the ability to regulate and determine by learning how to use the different aspects of our mind to regulate other aspects. Our mind works “on itself” to produce the experience of itself as a whole reality. The subconscious of the body doesn’t have the ability to become self-aware and gain intuitive realizations about itself, then actively decide what state it’s going to produce in order to act as a conduit for specific and selected types of knowledge, but simply acts instead as a passive receiver and vehicle for the higher, conscious aspect of the mind. It will readily absorb, become one with, and actualize as a reality whatever “idea” is acting to “impregnate it”. This aspect of the mind acts as a womb for suggestion given to it by an active (willful) mind, and produces the reality of the suggestion as an “experience” of it. It creates the idea first as an inner representation or imaginary reality that then becomes the metaphorical template as an organizing mechanism for producing as an outer reality of the same nature.

      When we remain unaware of how we’re programming ourselves or allowing ourselves to be programmed by others, we create ourselves in a random and haphazard way, usually without any real awareness of what we’re doing and how we’re doing it. This is why this aspect of the mind is referred to as “unconscious”. It lacks awareness in the most basic sense of the idea, and most importantly and awareness of its true nature as a creative, self-determining being. This is the aspect of the mind we share with the animal kingdom that’s driven purely by instinct as emotionally motivated behavior born out of conditioning and whatever we’ve been “trained” to as children. When we live out of emotions and the imaginary dramas they produce, we use our creative power to create ourselves according to the will and illusions of others. As long as we remain unconscious of our own power to create, we live in a constant reactive state where we act to “absorb and assimilate” all the emotions of others being transmitted in near proximity of us without any resistance or apparent ability to redirect them.

The Relationship between Thought and Emotion

       All of life exists as a dynamic series of intimate relationships that work together to “create realities” as varying planes of existence unified into a coherent idea. Thought and emotions are complementary opposites that play off each other in order to produce an experience of reality as a coherent and cohesive idea. They both exist as a part of what we call the astral plane of formation, which, like all parallel planes operate through a form of hierarchy as an up and down, back and forth, in and out movement. In the astral plane (atmosphere of star (sun) light), which precedes the material plane and serves as a kind of spatial map for organizing the material matrix, we have upper and lower regions as a range of vibration. The upper can be viewed as thought which forms light into shapes and scenarios, and the lower is comprised of emotion which is the formative and motivational force of thought.

      Thought as “form” provides the empty shell as a kind of metaphor that spirit inhabits, and emotions determine the behaviors the thought-form takes on. When we’re oriented from the higher regions descending into the lower, thought is causal in nature and acts to naturally invoke its complementary emotion, using it to create in a precise and deliberate manner. When oriented from the lower region of emotion ascending upward, the emotion gives rise to and determines the nature of thoughts that are associated with it. One is always married to the other as a means of creating a singular experience of reality. When we allow emotions to dominate us, they control our thoughts and run our imagination, rendering our higher nature a servant to our lower, unconscious nature. When reversed, we control and determine our thoughts and regulate our emotional state, rendering it a servant to our higher, conscious, and creative nature.

       This is why cleansing ourselves of all negativity and purifying our mind and soul are a fundamental part of all spiritual and creative development. Whatever “state” we cultivate and maintain determines what plane of knowledge we tune ourselves to and experience as our perception of reality. A negative, lower vibration of pain and destruction (hate, anger, vindictiveness, jealousy, sadness, etc.) keeps us imprisoned in that reality, which we ourselves are acting to create. All qualities have whole planes of knowledge associated with them. Anger tunes us into the knowledge of that plane, where we act to propagate and multiply anger by creating consistent experiences that express and feed our anger.

       Whatever quality and emotional state we embody and allow to take hold within us (whether unconsciously or with awareness), we become in spirit (mind), and we “exist” on that level of reality while continuously acting “on ourselves” to produce more of those type of experiences. As we produce consistent types of experiences they become our memories and build up through an accumulative process, and become our soul’s constitution as the blueprint we use for creating ourselves and more realities of the same nature. We become the channel for expressing anger by becoming it in mind and body, condemning ourselves to a life of constant pain and suffering. When we do this to ourselves we live in our lower, unconscious, and unaware mind as we’re being created by others and our own reaction to imaginary illusions about ourselves and others.

      Anytime we’re reacting (emotionally) we’re lending our will to be created by whatever is causing the reaction, and creating ourselves “as” our lower nature. As we take on the emotions of others that act to awaken and feed those same emotions in us, we act on ourselves in an aware manner to tune our mind to produce realities that express the emotion and “give us more of it”. Whatever we become one with in mind and body we tune and bond ourselves too energetically. All “states of mind” are associated with spheres of knowledge that act naturally to produce the reality of that state. In order to change our reality and the nature of our experiences, we need to change our state of mind as a “quality of consciousness”. This requires self-awareness, consciously making new decisions, and using our will to discipline ourselves to a new way of being.

Observing our own Mind and Tendencies

         As human beings, we employ emotions as the means of creating without realizing the consequences we draw upon ourselves. Heaven and hell aren’t “places” in terms of how we tend to think about them; they’re “states of mind” as the reality we create out of that state. This is very easy to realize by simply observing the difference between your perception, how you feel, and how you interpret things to create your experience of them while in an angry or resentful state as opposed to an inspired or loving state. How we perceive and experience the same event or situation is completely different based on what mood we’re in at the time. Whatever mood you’re in determines what you focus on, think about, what memories run through your mind, how you see others, your attitude, and how you act.

       Emotions only exist in the lower planes of the unconscious as instinct designed to produce behaviors that are automatic and engaged in without awareness or the need to consciously evaluate them. They are projected and transmitted through the astral plane (atmosphere) as an energetic charge. They’re ‘infectious’ because we ‘absorb’ and take them on without directly realizing it and let them ‘run us’ by triggering memories that we use as a form of thematic template for forming our thoughts. As we unconsciously take on an emotion and form the inner reality of the emotion, we ‘tune ourselves’ energetically to the reality and actions of those emotions. Through our emotional states we become a predictable part of the ‘group mind’ which determines how we form our thoughts about ourselves and others as the reenactment of our “formative conditioning” as children and the ‘suggestions’ we’re constantly allowing into our mind that are given to us by others.

      Once we realize the true nature and purpose of emotions, we can resist taking them on while intentionally acting on ourselves to control and redirect our own thinking and cultivate a positive state and the reality instead. The most basic form of self-control comes from learning how to regulate our own emotional states. All “qualities” as a “way of being” have planes of knowledge associated to them that produce our perception of reality as the basis for creating our experiences. In order to access ‘higher planes’ of reality we must first act on ourselves to cultivate and consistently maintain an ‘exalted (virtuous) state’. In order to step into our divine nature as a self-aware creative being we have to become like the beings of that plane. We have to move out of a constant state of unconscious reaction to one where we’re conscious and proactive. We have to move from being unconsciously created by others to becoming consciously created by ourselves in an intentional and precise manner.

Vibratory Hierarchies as Perceptual Filters and Self-Organizing Processes

       States, planes, spheres, realms, worlds, kingdoms, and dimensions all exist in a hierarchical flow from higher to lower, and from lower to higher vibration. All vibration has patterns as informational structures that form and animate whole realities. Through the Law of Vibration, sympathetic induction (absorption), and coherence (integration to form a new vibration), a kind of filtering process takes place where different aspects of the same group of information are made passive and active (turned on and off), forming new combinations as an altered or modified configuration of the same thing (theme). The elements involved remain the same, but they’re arranged and reformulated to form a new version as a complementary pattern or living offspring. Everyone who is a part of the same event or situation experiences it in a unique way and tells a different account of it based on their state of mind at the time and what they noticed and emphasized and what they ignored and left out. We all take the same group of shared information and abstract only specific aspects that can be formed into the reality of our mental paradigm. We’re always taking what we can think of as a universal idea and re-organizing it to form a personalized version of the same basic nature.

        We can only move from ‘one plane to another’ (between planes) through resonance. By becoming of the same nature as the qualities (pattern of being) inherent in that plane, we’re spontaneously ‘absorbed’ into it as a form of energetic intake. When two frequencies are similar in nature and tuned to the same master key, they serve to activate each other where one enters into and blends with the other, influencing both to form an altered vibration through a form of synchronization. Once united as the same thing, the vibration of both is altered and they begin vibrating in harmony with each other as a new state. Lower levels can’t access higher levels directly because they’re not similar enough to each other, and therefore a medium is required as the equilibrating point between them that can act to absorb one, integrate and assimilate it to become close enough in proximity to the other that it can be drawn up into the lowest regions of the higher plane.

       All planes (dimensions) have a “range of vibration” as a graduation from lower regions of the same frequency to higher regions in the same way a musical scale of seven notes acts to form an octave as an accumulation or “whole scale”. The “accumulative affect” of the lower frequency (plane) in its higher range, becomes similar enough to the lower frequency of the next higher plane that it can be “drawn” into it. Our vibration as a frequency is produced by how we consistently create and accumulate experiences of a certain type that serve to form our memories, all of which are born out of our natural mental and emotional states.

      As we move from a lower vibration to a higher one a filtering process takes place as a kind of refinement. The destructive, negative, and delusional ideas of the lower, emotional and unconscious nature can’t naturally move into the reality of the higher, positive, and constructive plane of a fully awake and self-aware mind. As long as we remain unaware of our true creative power as conscious and divine beings, we condemn ourselves to the life of illusion created out of our emotional states. As long as our emotions run us and we use our will to create the reality of others through a reactive state, we keep ourselves confined to a mortal and unconscious existence as an intelligent animal that’s easy to train. We remain in the reality of pain and suffering that we’re acting on ourselves unknowingly to create.

Self-Enslavement

       We’re all enslaved by our own mind and how we’ve been trained to use it. When we cultivate and consistently live out of fear and anxiety of some kind, we act on ourselves to condemn ourselves to a life of constant fearful thoughts and suggestions that only serve to produce more experiences of fear and anxiety. It’s up to us to work on intentionally changing our own mental state. No one else can do it for us. We keep ourselves tuned to the reality of our feelings, emotions, and unconscious (habitual) thoughts. Just as our higher soul acts as the medium between higher forms of consciousness and lower forms of unconsciousness (instinct), our body-soul acts as the medium for absorbing and expressing the emotions and consciousness within the material plane through a form of horizontal movement between the inner and outer as our self and another.

       What we now think of as the Human race was originally created as the combination of higher and lower beings in order to produce slaves as a workforce. We were bred in an experimental way in order to produce a being intelligent enough to do the work, yet easy to control and give direction, with no philosophy of our own. When we’re “in” our lower, animal nature (which is primarily an unconscious state) we lack self-awareness in the most basic sense, and the higher capacities of reason. We often lack the confidence and executive faculties necessary to make decisions for ourselves and exercise our will in order to consciously create. There’s a complete lack of awareness as to our higher nature as divine, god-like beings, and we simply live out of whatever emotional states and dynamics we’ve been conditioned with and continue to act as a magnet for.

       We become a servant to the will of what we imagine to be higher, supreme and authoritative beings. We’re taught to worship other human beings of a higher and more conscious nature as “Gods”. While in our normal and somewhat unconscious state, we simply absorb the suggestions (thoughts) and emotions given to us through the projections of others, and allow them to take control of our will where we cooperatively create the reality they want us to. While in our lower nature we lack any real sense of purpose in realizing our own ability to consciously create ourselves. Whatever state we exist in determines what plane and type of reality we use our mind to create.

How we Stay Stuck in Patterns, and How to Transform them

One of the most valuable things we can learn psychologically is to really tune into the nature of patterns. All of life operates by way of a dynamic interconnected system of patterns. Patterns are not only formed out of memory as habits or routines, but also out of how we think and reason as creative processes that form our fundamental perception of things, and as the filtering system produced by our mental paradigm which is a dynamic model comprised of correlated, congruent patterns that are constantly being developed and evolved based on our experiences and what we integrate to produce our memories. As we go through life, we’re steadily forming our mental paradigm through our conditioning and what type of dynamics we’re a part of and play a role in, that shape the way we think and perceive, while simultaneously developing and “bringing out” our own style of perceiving through the type of story we begin telling ourselves as a way of making sense of things and making them mean something.

The most basic pattern we form that births and gives rise to all other patterns, is the “life theme” we develop as “our story” about things. This story emerges naturally through our conditioning out of a series of beliefs we form due to our experiences, what we start telling ourselves about them as an interpretation and thought process, and based on what we’re taught and accept as being true and real. All stories emerge naturally out of meaning, which, as children, comes from feelings. As our mind begins developing, and we begin actively creating how we experience things based on how we begin using our mind to reason, we begin constantly asking ourselves in any situation that has significant emotional impact . . . what does this mean?

Meaning, which forms the basis for reality, like the mind and soul producing it, is three-fold in nature, and creates on three levels simultaneously. The meaning we give something that forms the basis of our story as our way experiencing, means something about others, the way the world is in general, and about us in relation to it. All of our “experiences”, which are self-created, don’t come from the actual events of our life, but from how we interpret those events. Interpretation forms perception, and perception “is” reality. Our reality as our experience of the outer world is formed 100% from our perception, which is a by-product or natural expression of our paradigm as our “model of the world”. A model is comprised of an infinite series of memory that are all of a complementary nature and work together faithfully to produce a congruent and consistent version of reality. The structure of our mind as a paradigm is what we can call the core or fundamental pattern that orchestrates and acts as a choreographer for systematically producing all of our perceptions and experiences. It’s what we could think of as our “parental pattern” that produces a series of smaller fractal patterns of the same nature and theme as its offspring. We never have independent or singular patterns, beliefs, or areas of our life, but rather a holistic and unified “system” of patterns, memories, and beliefs. If we try to work with a specific pattern or area of our life that we don’t like and want to change, without ever identifying the “core belief”, conditioned tendency, or habit of perceiving and thinking that’s naturally producing it, we fail to be able to change it, and even when we seem to have changed it in terms of outward appearance, it collapses back into the same pattern and tendency we thought we had changed. This is because it can’t be sustained as independent from the system that’s producing it as a natural and automatic way of thinking and perceiving.

We can however use specific areas of our life and relationships as the means for identifying and becoming aware of our core beliefs and fears, where our feelings counteract our intellect and rational thinking, or where we’re aware that we’re not producing what we want to through various forms of sabotage and deep seated tendencies that are purely emotional in nature and act to magnetically pull us back into habitual patterns. Once we realize that we’re playing out the same fundamental pattern in a variety of ways in every area of our life, we can pick one to work on consciously as a way of influencing and affecting the primary, parental pattern. In doing this, and implementing the proper type of change, one that acts to modify and upgrade the entire system, we not only bring change into that one area of our life, but in the same manner in all areas of our life. It’s only by modifying our mental paradigm as our primary pattern and model, that we ‘break patterns” in selected areas, while replacing them with new patterns that are more beneficial and produce the outcome and type of experience we desire. We’re never “stopping one pattern” or quitting something, but rather changing an old pattern into a new one, or replacing something with something else. This means that it’s not enough to decide what you don’t like or want to change, but also what you “do want instead”, and what new behaviors or idea you’re going to employ in their place. When we decide to change our self and life in some way, we’re moving out of a form of unconscious and natural way of producing habitual experiences and into a role of actively creating with full awareness of what we’re doing and why. This means it requires a strong desire, steady focus, and constant effort (at first). All intentional change only comes through active use of our will and our ability to choose new options and ways of being.

In the most general sense of the word, being always produces doing. All action results from our inward sense of our self. To produce an outward change, we have to work by changing the inward state of being that’s acting through a fundamental form of self-expression to systematically produce it in a habitual fashion. We don’t change the world or other people by trying to work “on them” directly, but by changing ourselves inwardly, which automatically produces how we exist in relationship to the outer world, how we perceive others (in our own image), and how we act naturally to influence them in new ways that change how they respond to us. It’s only by changing ourselves that others and the world in general appears different to us. As long as we remain the same internally, everything remains the same externally. The entire world operates according to the Law of Cause and Effect. All action produces and equal reaction of the same nature and type. To change how someone else is acting, we have to change how we’re acting to stimulate them, and how we sense and perceive ourselves in relationship with them. As long as we’re employing the same attitude, way of looking at something and behaviors, we consistently produce the same thing over and over.

Learning how to Change Your Story

The first thing we have to do when deciding we have to change somehow, is learn how to actively “give up” our story about stuff and form instead a desire to tell a new kind of story that changes how we experience the events of our life and causes us to feel different and “become” a different type of person as a result. Most don’t want to give up their story about things, but instead want to be validated in it, and have everyone and everything else change through a form of agreeing and acting to counteract or go against instead what they’re actually the one creating. Someone who never feels “wanted”, for example, wants to keep telling that story and feeling that way, while having someone demonstrate or prove to them that they “want them”, yet their perceptual filters will always act to interpret any behavior to mean they’re not wanted. Usually of course without realizing that that’s what they’re doing, because we often don’t fully realize that we create our story perfectly through our feelings and perceptions, and only see and “experience” what matches them, and what can be skewed or recomposed in a way that lends itself to telling our story. The “feeling” that at once produces our story, creating an experience that gives us more of that same feeling, being the key component.

Our story is difficult to change because we’ve built our identity out of it as how we perceive and sense ourselves, and as a result don’t know how to tell a different type of story. When we try, we can often feel awkward, unfamiliar and uncertain, in new territory without a means to navigate, and don’t know how to “be” or what to do. All behavior is learned, and with learning comes the unknown. We have to practice something before we get good at it and it starts becoming natural. Change at first feels like we’re not being ourselves, or we’re someone phony or inauthentic (to use a buzz word), and this feeling and thought is what often sabotages our attempts at change and causes us to revert back to old and familiar ways of being that are more comfortable.

We don’t have to work through all of our “issues” and complexes through years of therapy and self-reflection on the events of our life, what happened to us, and why we’re the way we are, which usually only validates and strengthens them, but by learning instead how to use our creative power of choice and free will. We can produce any change we want by making the “clear and actual decision” to change, then disciplining ourselves to consistently produce and act out that decision until it becomes natural and automatic. Ways of feeling, thinking, perceiving, and acting are merely habits we’ve established as the means of producing the experience of ourselves and our life. Like all habits, they can be changed by simply replacing them with new habits. You have to want the change bad enough to do what it takes to produce and then maintain it, by deciding in a fully aware manner who and how you’re going to be and what type of story you’re going to tell by how you live your life.

Changing our story doesn’t mean we form an illusion over what we imagine to be fact, or deny the events of our life that formed our memories, but rather by learning the art of transforming them by interpreting them and telling our story about them from a new and different perspective that changes the experience of them. For example, when I was a kid, one of the stories I kept telling myself was that nobody really knew me for who I am, but rather by judging me to be like my family. I had a fairly traumatic childhood, and was a compulsive runaway, living much of my life on the streets, and was used to those who tried to help me looking at me and saying things like “you poor thing”, which was just about the most god-awful feeling I ever had because it made me out to be weak and pitiful, when my life circumstances actually served to make me very strong and capable. When I became an adult, and moved to a different city where nobody knew my past or family, a voice inside me one day casually said, “ok, now you’re in a situation where nobody knows to judge you based on your family and past . . . so who are you going to be?” And at that moment, the entire course of my life changed, and I was truly in a position of creating myself, which I found exciting.

I started off by vowing to never talk about my past or how I grew up with any new people, living fully in the present and giving them only an impression of what I was like at that time. I did this for years, and it became a natural way of living for me, and I quit thinking about my past altogether in the normal daily sense. I learned how to stay present and to realize in every moment I was deciding who I was going to be by how I acted and what I talked about. Later, when I was in another new environment, I decided to talk about my past as my childhood experiences while only picking the ones I could tell from a humorous and adventurous perspective. I made what was actually drastic and traumatic at the time, seem funny and exciting. I decided to tell stories of running away and hoping freight trains to unknown destinations from a perspective of “Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn”, as an exciting adventure met with constant surprises and quirky opportunities. I learned how to pick different memories to tell stories around rather than the ones I had previously focused on. I became so good at this, that my staff found them very entertaining, and on slow afternoons would ask me to tell them more stories about growing up.

The point to this is that the “way” I told the stories made me feel entirely different and turned me into a different type of person. Because I imagined them vividly from a different perspective, and played them out repeatedly from that perspective, it literally changed my memories by evolving and transforming them. From that point on, every time I thought about those events, I remembered them from a new perspective, and after a while I not only couldn’t remember how I experienced them originally as a little girl, but got to where I no longer felt like that little girl. She became more like somebody I knew really well and loved very much. She was no longer an essential part of me, and wasn’t the one who created the story I was still living out of as an adult. I began realizing that what tends to become our story as our “life theme” that we continue creating out of as adults, originates from a child’s perspective who is simply trying to make sense of things as best they can with the limited resources they have. As an adult I was much more equipped to tell a far more accurate story of my life based on an adult, mature perspective and mindset.

One of the first things you want to notice when forming a new story about yourself and your life, is that you have many memories of your past, but you consistently pick a small handful, usually the ones with the greatest emotional impact, to use consistently to “tell your story” about what happened to you and what your life was like. You could just as easily let go of those and pick a whole new set that you use to tell stories out of (to yourself and others) that would completely change the way you feel and who you become. You can also take the same major events of your life, realize how you interpreted them at the time you were going through them to create how you experienced them, and decide from a perspective of hindsight and what they served to teach you through the realizations you obtained because of them, and (re)perceive them from a new, more mature perspective, and retell your story about them in a way that makes you feel different, and become different by way of them as a result. As you form a new perspective, you imagine it as a reality that created a different type of experience, the type you want as the means of developing yourself in that way. As you create a new experience of it, and you get it just the way you like it, you play it over and over in your mind from within the experience of it. By playing it repeatedly, in vivid sensory terms of being in the experience of it, you establish it as a new memory and pattern that forms the basis for telling a new type of story. Instead of being scared or freaked out, you can be courageous, brave, confident, or surprised and filled with anticipation as a form of excitement. Instead of hurt and feeling betrayed, you can see it clearly, read all the signs of what was going on, and realize that as it happened it had nothing to do with you, and so you remain unaffected by it.

Because we’re the ones that are always creating our experiences of the events of our life, we form our memories also. Our memories become the established patterns as fully interpreted realities that provide us with instant patterns in the present to create more of the same type of experiences through similar events. As we create our experiences that become our memories, we simultaneously create ourselves by way of those experiences. All of our perception and resulting behaviors are produced in a natural and automatic way from memory. Our memories are shaped by the primary patterns of our life as our “theme” or “life’s story” that we’re always acting out and creating in some manner in every area of our life. To change a pattern as a memory, is to either transform an existing memory into a new experience, or create a new memory that you’ll use in place of the old memory that provides a pattern for the subconscious mind to act out naturally and use to produce more realities and experiences of the same nature.

To create a new (virtual) memory, start by selecting a scenario or behavior in your current life that you’d like to change. Form a very clear idea of what you’d like to change it to. How would you like to experience it or behave instead? As you go over the course of events, reflecting on how it went, what your interaction was, how you felt, and what you did, form a clear idea on how you would have liked it to have gone instead, and how you would respond or interact through hindsight. Reform it in your mind accordingly, until it plays out the way you want it to. If changing a behavior and not the overall pattern as a dynamic, leave everything the same (the emotion, meaning, trigger, etc.), and simply “choose” how you would have liked to have behaved, and play that out instead as a new response to the same stimulus. Once you have it the way you want as a general flow, replay it in your mind until it’s consistent. Once it’s consistent as a pattern that can be replayed in the imagination, begin enhancing it with sensory attributes and qualities. Make it vivid, in full color, and up close (immediate). Then shape it further by asking:

  • What are you seeing (picture in detail)
  • What are you hearing?
  • What are you touching or feeling? (objects or textures)
  • Smelling and tasting?
  • How are you feeling? (internally)
  • What are you telling yourself about it (internal dialogue)?
  • Feel it as an emotional experience – as if it’s actually happening.

Play it over several times as an actual experience that’s just the way you want it, until you can recall it automatically. What references a memory in the present is whatever feeling and emotion is connected to it. In order to use it to replace another memory, associate the same feeling and emotions to it. So that anytime you’re in a situation feeling that way, it triggers that memory and you see it as a pattern for creating the same type of experience and reality in the present one.

If you’re creating a brand new type of experience that you want to create, focus heavily on the feeling it gives you, and realize that brand new experiences may not come in the same way you imagine as a specific situation or set of circumstances, but it’ll produce the same type of feeling. You won’t be able to recognize it by what it looks like, but rather by how you feel when in it, having it. The appearance it takes on will be based on what’s available in your immediate, everyday environment that’s of the same nature and will naturally lend itself to co-creating the same type of experience. The reality it comes by way of will however be of the same theme, dynamic, and over-all pattern.

The other thing you have to keep in mind is that you can’t inflict your will on others. If you’re not of the same will, nature, and destiny, the reality you produce that includes them will never manifest. You can’t require specific people to be a part of your memory/reality, and it can’t be an attempt to change someone else, it can only require you to change by directing your own perception and behavior. If other people are involved, they have to be archetypes only, or a representation of a “type of person” who would act naturally to create that type of experience. So “who” actually participates in co-creating the experience, and the set of circumstances it takes place in, might be quite different than you imagined, yet it’ll be the same “type” of experience.

Mastering your Will to Create and Transform

Many people don’t fully understand what we mean when we use the term “will”, and as a result they don’t know how to use it in a deliberate and powerful way to create. Will is always associated to choice, because anytime we’re actually using our will , it’s to move out of conditioning and automatic, habitual tendencies that we do naturally, and create in a new and more individual way instead. When we’re trained to belief systems and certain mind-sets as “group consciousness” of some form, we’re actually lending our will to others and allowing them to shape and determine us as a result. Our will isn’t our ability to “resist” things or not give in to passions, pleasure, desires, or cravings of some kind through an act of sheer strength and willpower, but rather our ability to decide on what we want to be and do, and use our imagination to form the correct “internal representation” (IR) of ideas that either make them repulsive and disgusting, or desirable and attractive.

While we tend to think that things have power over us in the same sense that they’re dictating our experience and how we respond as a result, the fact is that we shape the outer world into an internal representation (IR) that we then use in place of the actual thing or activity as a way of experiencing it. As we think about something we’re associating other ideas with it, and using our “sensory system” to embellish it with sensory qualities that invoke emotional states. An idea that’s turned into an internal reality that serves to elicit strong emotions in response to it are how we’re using our will all the time to direct our own behavior and what we participate in by desiring and becoming one with it; as well as what we don’t because we find it unappealing for some reason. If we’ve made a decision to stop doing something, and we constantly struggle to resist it and create an experience of suffering because we’re abstaining from it, it’s because we haven’t learned how to use our higher mind to direct ourselves, and we’re using it incorrectly as a result.

The body, which is what we also refer to as the subconscious mind, because it inhabits and operates it, is operated by memory, and forms all of our natural behaviors as repetitive patterns and daily rituals and tendencies. The subconscious “thinks” in pictures and is experiential in nature. This means we communicate with it and act to program it with a form of virtual memory by imagining ideas as an experience of them. Its primary motive is “self-preservation”, so all of its impulses as feeling emotional states are geared towards maintaining the status quo and habits engaged in on a routine basis. It’s primarily instinctual in nature and motivated by pleasure or pain. It moves deeper into and seeks out whatever it deems pleasurable, and moves away from or avoids whatever it deems painful. It forms, firmly establishes and faithfully maintains habits and addictions, and is nearly always craving and wanting something. All of its needs are physical and material in nature and it works and is driven by emotions, making it impulsive and urge oriented. When it doesn’t get what it “needs and desires” it causes pain and suffering through emotions and physical withdrawals, which is experienced as a form of death (no longer able to sustain itself through that activity).

The subconscious mind is the creative aspect of the mind that’s capable of shaping and producing material realities, both inwardly and outwardly. It does this by turning a feeling or idea into a reality in the faculty of the imagination. Being memory oriented, it acts to create our memories from actual experiences, replaying them as a means of continuing to create by way of them, and as the means of being fed an idea as a form of “seeded thought” that it then fashions into a reality as a form of virtual memory. The imagined idea as an original creation is formed and appears in the imagination in exactly the same way as an actual memory does. This virtual memory as an internal representation of an idea operates in exactly the same way as an actual memory creating a kind of blueprint or template as an internal experience that forms the basis for the correlating external experiences of the same kind.

This “virtual memory” is an image, scenario, or movie-like idea that’s translucent (like a reflection on glass) in nature (can be seen fully while looking at something else), and becomes our perceptual lens as a filtering mechanism that reorganizes the elements of our outer reality to match the theme and emotions of the inner one. The IR becomes a kind of template or map for structuring and navigating the outer experience. Because of this tendency to “perceive out of memory and IR’s”, we never directly see or experience things as they actually are (a part from us), but rather as we “remake them” through our perception of them. This perception based on or produced by an IR or memory, works through the same principles as value judgments and either makes something appear desirable, likeable, and pleasurable, or undesirable, despicable and unappealing, or disgusting somehow.

When we decide and say we’re no longer going to do something, but we continue to form it in our mind as pleasurable and desirable, we struggle to resist it and continue to want it. We make giving it up a painful experience and the longing for it never goes away, so we’re always “tempted” by it. If instead, realizing how the mind works, we change the IR we’re forming into something that’s disgusting, repulsive, and painful, then we have no trouble resisting it, and thoughts of it eventually go away altogether. When we no longer think about it, it’s no longer a part of us and it exercises no control over us. This is the accurate use of the will – to make a decision to take control of what’s normally and unconscious process, and inject instead the idea we want to create in its place – then change the IR of what we’re stopping or looking to transform, while embellishing and enhancing the IR of the new idea we’re replacing it with.

Internal Representations, like reality itself are formed through sensory attributes, qualities, and characteristics that either makes it up-close, in vivid color and compelling, or far-away, black and white and neutral. If we make something up-close, immediate, full Technicolor, and create it as a full sensory experience of what you’re seeing, hearing, feeling, touching, smelling or tasting, and what you’re telling yourself about the experience that gives it meaning, and you create it with very positive emotions that make it pleasurable and beautiful, you create a strong desire for it. This gives your subconscious a very compelling “memory” that it steadily move towards and into, while seeking it out and connecting with that same idea in your immediate outer environment. If you then neutralize the current idea that you want to eliminate by turning it to black and white, pushing it out far into the distance so it seems far away, and assign negative sensory qualities and emotions to it, the subconscious, being given a more desirable alternative forgets about it, moves away from or avoids the old, eventually disconnecting from it all together outwardly, and moves instead into the fulfillment of the new and pleasurable idea.

The will is the active component of the conscious mind that can make new decisions that are not a part of its formative conditioning and habitual in nature, and can rule out one idea while replacing it with another. It impregnates the subconscious imagination with the seed as a unique idea that is then grown and formed into maturity in the imagination and manifests as an experience that bridges the inner with the outer, both of which are the creation of the subconscious mind as its offspring. The subconscious mind, when not being fed by its own personal will as an intentional idea for creating, absorbs instead the will of others as mental and emotional impressions or suggestions going on around it that it uses to generate thoughts in the imagination, and not only creates the individual (mind and body) according to those thoughts, but also creates the outer experience of those thoughts as its reality.

Anytime we passively take in an idea from outside of us (thoughts of another), and we form them into IR’s as a virtual reality, and make them our own by continuing to think about them, we’re choosing (unconsciously) to manifest and give life to the will of others through us. We’re literally lending our will to them, allowing them to determine us and the reality we experience as the perceptual lens we look through. The conscious, willful mind, is what’s traditionally called the “gate-keeper”, and is the aspect of the self that decides what’s allowed into the subconscious and what’s not. It analyzes, intuits, and evaluates the information to decide whether it’s true or not, valuable in some way, or would be beneficial as a means of upgrading the mental paradigm by incorporating it. It’s the “editor” that filters information through reasoning. It’s the part of our selves that’s always actively choosing even when we’re unaware (no choice is a choice) and decides what stays and what goes. It’s the aspect of the mind that has the ability to intentionally self-create through the active transformation of old ideas into new ones.

What Reactive Behaviors are showing you about Yourself

Reactive Behaviors show you the Areas of your Life that you’re still Unaware of

spiritual-awakening

In order to understand this idea, we have to look at the nature of a reaction, and what’s actually happening when we react, as well as what it means to “heal” in the sense that it’s being used here. Someone who acts to stimulate you into a reactive state because of how they’re being, what they’re doing or saying, or how they’re treating you, shows you areas about yourself, that you still remain unaware of,  either through denial, repression, or conditioning of some sort. Anytime we begin reacting, we switch into a form of auto-pilot, and literally go unconscious to what’s happening and what it is we’re actually doing. We’re being “controlled” by the person or idea that’s eliciting an immediate reaction in us. Because of this instant, automated factor, we not only create out of an unconscious state, but we do so by repeating patterns born out of memory of the past, which is what gives us the pattern necessary to act out in an automated fashion, requiring no awareness or thought process on our part as to what we doing and why, let alone realizing the consequences we draw to ourselves while in the illusory state.

Reactions come through associations of some sort that instantly references a memory where the same type of idea was being played out (which is the triggering mechanism), where we pull it out, superimpose it over the current situation using it to perceive it through, making it about the same idea, and act the same way we did in the memory, by making what’s happening in the present mean the same thing as the past. Our mind registers that “this” is the same as “that”. Because we make it mean the same thing, and therefore react in the same way, we can be triggered into a blind reaction by a behavior, tone of voice, a feeling, an attitude, an emotional state being demonstrated around us, the words being used, or through an idea being played out that we have strong emotional ties to that form what we call our “issues”.

Reactions can be both of a good nature, stimulating positive emotions that bring about pleasurable experiences, or of a bad nature that stimulate negative emotions that are painful and violent, and ultimately destructive in nature. But no matter the nature of the experience it causes, it comes as being controlled by whomever or whatever is causing the reaction, and going unconscious in our own life and acting in a way that creates our experience, shapes us by way of our own self-created experiences, and renders a like reaction to our actions as a chain reaction, where what we do in a reactive state becomes the cause for producing an equal or greater reaction in others, which becomes self-perpetuating and gains momentum through escalation. This is the most basic form of repeating the past in the present, or being a product of our conditioning and what we call karma, and the basis for all “sin” as creating while in an unconscious state and unaware of what we’re doing, and therefore creating in error.

DNA and the Pineal

The opportunity being offered anytime we’re feeling stimulated inside to instantly react to something outside of us in a pronounced and intense manner, is it allows us to see what idea as a conditioned memory is still alive in us, able to be activated and repeated in the present, causing more of the same ideas and situations as in the past. In shows in what ways we are controllable by outside forces, and how we keep repeating the past in the present as a means of determining our future. It allows us to see what our karma is as unconscious tendencies that we repeat over and over without any actual realization of what we’re doing. It allows us to see things about ourselves that we don’t normally see or recognize, because we’re covering them up or justifying them (as being real) through the story that we keep telling ourselves about them that make them seem real and true, and therefore justify our right to feel the way we do and “keep” them.

By realizing this ability to show us aspects of ourselves that we remain unaware of, where we build an illusion around it through the story we tell about it that makes it appear different than it really is, we fail to own it or be able to regulate it through awareness and willful action. If we completely remove all attention from the outside source causing the reaction, and instead place all of our attention on what’s happening inside of us that has nothing to do with what’s happening outside of us, we can see a process that takes place, instantly forming a “version of reality” that we systematically superimpose over the present situation as a means of instant interpretation that has a whole, preprogrammed pattern of behavior inherent in it as what we did before when the same thing happened to us. If we refrain from actually reacting while still letting the process that’s going on internally continue while observing it, we can notice what memory we associate to it, reference in relation to it, and use as an automated program for repeating a past idea by acting it out. We can notice what begins running through our mind as a story we start telling ourselves “about” what’s happening and what it means about us, other people, and the way the world is in general. Through reactive behaviors we repeat the patterns of the past in the present and they set the basis for our creating more of the same idea in our future. If we turn all our attention inwardly while allowing the reactive state to continue playing out in us, we’ll get a very clear idea on what areas in our life still remain unresolved and alive inside of us, that we’re continuing to create out of.

Through awareness alone, we can see our own internal process for how “we create” the reactive state as a means of cooperating with the same quality of consciousness in the present that we did in the past. We can witness what we’re doing to create our reactive state. Nobody ever “makes us” do anything, they just provide the stimulus for us to do it to ourselves. We create the inner state which produces the outer behavior as what we call a reaction that’s compulsive in nature. Nobody ever really controls us, we simply fail to be able to control ourselves, and in doing so, allow ourselves to be controlled by others. Because we imagine that something’s being done “to us” by another, we claim no responsibility for our own actions, and instead blame it on the person causing it. Blame itself is an illusion, because our internal state is always being conducted by us, and whatever is being done to us, is being done by us through a lack of self-awareness as to who’s doing the doing. So by becoming aware of what memories we have associated to reactive tendencies, and how our memories of the past continue to define us by shaping our experiences in the present, we can neutralize the “triggering mechanism” as an emotional charge, and in doing so, consciously decide how we want to perceive and respond to whatever is happening in the present moment, with full awareness of what we’re doing and what will result from what we’re doing.

Most of our memories as our primal conditioning are created by the mind of a child ingrained with a certain nature, predisposition, temperament, and tendencies, as an “interpretation” of events and activities in order to make sense of them, which comes by way of the meaning we give them that fashions the story we begin telling ourselves about them as a result. This story, formed from the imagination, intelligence and emotional state of a child, forms our “core beliefs” as the reality of our story and what’s required to sustain it, which is a personal creation as an illusion, which continues into our adulthood, where we continue perceiving reality according to our childhood story. Our beliefs shape our reality, not in the literal sense of the external elements themselves, but in terms of what we see and don’t see in any situation and how we interpret it to give it the meaning it holds for us as the means of experiencing it, while shaping our identity by way of our story about things. In this way, our memories, which are formed largely through an imaginary process of storytelling based on not knowing the true reality or other facts to what’s going on and only viewing it from “our perspective”, becomes our programming as our perceptual lens and mental filtering system, which forms the basis of all our perceptions of what we call reality, which is in fact a subjective experience of an outer objective reality. In this way our beliefs replace “actual” objective reality as an illusion that becomes a delusion, because we live out of this illusion as though it was true and thereby making it true for us.

As we witness the whole process that’s taking place within us, and being conducted by us, while shutting off all reference to the outside conditions and circumstances prompting the internal process, we can see clearly the illusion of it. We can see what we’re doing to ourselves to create the emotional state of the reaction. Through this self-awareness of the true reality of the situation, neutralizes the emotional charge as the triggering mechanism, dulling

the compulsiveness, and in that moment of calm where their used to be a storm, we realize we have a choice. We can choose how to first perceive it in a new light from a new (mature) perspective by staying in the present with what’s actually happening now, and how we want to respond accordingly. What originated as a thoughtless, knee jerk reaction, becomes a thoughtful relaxed response. In this way, the only thing that has changed, is that we took control of our own internal process instead of forfeiting it to others. We move from being “other referencing” to being “self-referencing”. By becoming aware of what we were previously unaware of, it loses its grip on us, and we find ourselves easily taking control of what was previously out of control.

Once we realize that our “perception as an interpretation” is actually something we do with our mind as a process of association and referencing the past with the present, we can actively engage in incorporating new models and paradigms necessary to form new types of experiences. We can literally take control of our own internal mental processes and direct them in an intelligent and deliberate manner by learning how to work by way of the laws as natural processes of the mind to create reality as a personal interpretation of what originates from a neutral set of events, completely devoid of personal meaning. Things only mean what we make them mean. Meaning is something we assign to material things as a way of interpreting them through a story about them as a way of experiencing them while simultaneously fashioning ourselves by way of our own perceptions. We can realize, that any time we experience being controlled by somebody else through a reaction were forming to them, we can realize that what’s actually happening is we are failing to take control of ourselves and turning over that right to another by remaining unaware of our own internal experience as a creative process. As we become aware of how we create our experiences, and we learn how to take control of our own internal processes, we come to a place where we no longer react, and instead remain relaxed and calm inside, and able to think clearly through an isolated state of inner peace. By taking control of our own mind, we exist in a constant state of introspection, that once we master, forms inner peace as self-awareness, responsibility, and competency in regards to our own self-creation and soul evolution.

Sacred Geometry – The Secret Language of Universal Laws

The Secret Language of Sacred Sciences

septad

Sacred Geometry forms the basis for an intuitive system of philosophical mathematics and universal laws as “operations” for applying knowledge at the practical level to create on multiple planes simultaneously through resonance as equilibrium. Through resonance we draw down purely mental forces of the higher planes and use them to animate the astral light of the material plane through conceptualizations born in the imagination that form the templates necessary to create in various ways on the lower, material planes.

Sacred Geometry forms a system of correspondences that connects a series of ideas that are all of the same nature or archetypal principle, as material forms of various types or degrees. These symbols as geometric shapes demonstrate basic laws as form, function, and order, which exist in a natural relationship with each other and make up the material world as we know it. All of life, whether organic or inorganic, are not only formed by the action of these laws which organize and concentrate light as matter, but also animate living forms through “energetic states of consciousness” that undergo growth processes, imbue it with attributes, properties and behaviors born out of a distinct and unique type of personality. Form always indicates function or how something behaves or the operations it naturally undergoes. The form something takes on, gives it properties as a dynamic series of relationships, that all exist in a harmonious and interdependent relationship as a unified body.

All forms exist as vibration of subtle energy as pure consciousness. The frequency something vibrates at, forms its qualities and characteristics as a “state”, which then acts as an expression of its inner nature. The rate and mode of vibration, structures matter into distinct patterns as geometric (molecular) structures that are combined to form a unified whole. Vibration, as subtle energy is consciousness, which has an active, self-organizing component that grows organisms from a “seed” as a formula of information that undergoes a division and multiplication process guided by a spatial orientation as a holographic blueprint, where multiple structures that perform specialized processes as different parts of a whole body, spontaneously emerge out of each other. There’s an invisible intelligence to all of life that takes information in its purely potential state (as unformed), and activates it systematically in strategic stages, that ultimately creates whole material entities out of nothing. It (the invisible intelligence) structures a material body through a process of self-generation, cellular division, differentiation, and multiplication as “creation”.

tree

Out of a packet of coded information, where certain aspects get “turned on” and become active, while others are “turned off”, and remain dormant (time regulated) while an active self-organizing force “grows” a living being. This material form consists of multiple layers of various types of interwove structures, all in geometric shapes, which, based on their specific structure perform certain types of operations, and play a specialized part in the operation of the whole. All of these different geometric structures that are an inherent part of the larger whole, emerge “out of each other” spontaneously as a natural growth process. Each structured based on the role it plays in a dynamic, interconnected relationship as a part of the whole entity. Each aspect of the whole as a cell or molecule, contains the full encoded information of the whole as its DNA, but through a self-organizing process of spatial mapping, each cell specializes by reforming the information, switching what’s turned on and turned off, to create a necessary part of the whole as a harmonious process. This reformulation of the same basic information, produces a unique cellular structure that naturally performs a different shape and function within the overall body.

Vibration as consciousness, through the same basic stuff as attributes, qualities and characteristics, form the basis for laws as the building blocks of life that perform natural behaviors and operations as the natural expression of the consciousness inherent in the form. The “state” of matter, as the consciousness inhabiting and animating it, form it’s “inner nature” as it’s essence which forms it’s outer appearance, not only in actual form (as a member of a species or class), but also in the personality, quality, and level of intelligence the form possesses and outwardly demonstrates through it’s natural behaviors and way of being.

These laws and principles as the life giving forces of the natural world, are represented by the geometric shapes they naturally produce, and the qualities and functions they naturally perform as the very expression of their nature. Each form correlates to a number that’s represented in its actual geometric shape, calculated by the equilateral angles of it’s form, a letter as the sound of that form as a tone, color as the vibratory frequency (frequencies produce color), state of mind, type of personality (planetary attribute), and so on. A system of analogy and correspondences form a series of associated ideas that are all different aspects or qualities of the same nature or essence as a vibratory frequency. A frequency forms a pattern imbued with qualities as degrees of consciousness, that give it characteristics that determines how it functions, and what part it naturally plays in a greater whole as a story, community, or ecology. In animated life forms, as in the human and animal kingdoms, these forms and behaviors are also imbued with a personality, which gives it a kind of signature in terms of the unique style in which it does what it does.

Sacred Geometry is an intuitive language of science as law, and provides us with holistic information about the natural processes of life and the nature of the operations involved. It gives us explicit instructions on how to use our own mind-body system in intentional ways to produce physical realities by reformulating its material and chemical structure through the quality of consciousness being employed. This information about natural processes, gives us the theoretical processes necessary to apply through experimentation, to influence or outright produce material results. Naturally, our ability to accurately apply it along with the mental state we employ while applying it, determines the nature of the outcomes we’re able to produce. So while shapes, numbers, letters, colors, sounds, states, and so on, can give us the basis for making very generalized interpretations that are largely abstract in nature and identify an idea or desired experience, without giving us the necessary information about “how” to do it, if we understand how to interpret the geometric shapes as laws, we can gain the knowledge as distinct operations for undergoing mental processes necessary to create the ideas and quality of experiences they suggest.

Through this process of law, that gives us the full creative process for producing desired personal realities and experiences, we can learn how to utilize our own power of mind to self-create and influence the outer reality by how we exist in relationship with it, and how we reshape and direct it through the very nature of our perception of it. We can come to realize the true nature of reality itself, and how our own mind exists in intimate relationship with the elemental world of luminescent matter. We can realize that the outer shape of any geometric design is formed by the inner shape or invisible space forming and organizing it. We can realize that our experience of reality, both symbolically and literally, is a product of our own mind and inner being, and acquire the knowledge as practical processes for undergoing personal transformation, which, by changing our mind as our inner atmosphere, changes our very essence, and how things appear to us, or what we perceive in our ordinary reality.

By working with laws, we create in a fluent and spontaneous manner. By using their instruction as processes of the mind shaping matter to perform natural operations, we can begin consciously operating our own mind instead of letting it be haphazardly used by the suggestions we’re flooded with from the external world. We can realize that by changing the inner, invisible structure of our mind, we change our molecular structure, which changes our outer expression and how we’re being in the world. By acquiring the tools and creative processes for undergoing metamorphosis, we change our very relationship with the outer world and how we experience and interact with it. Through the science of the Spirit, and the practice of spiritual knowledge as universal law in how we live our daily life and conduct ourselves, we become self-determined, and truly responsible for our own creations. Sacred Geometry is the scientific language of the spiritual world as the Magicians toolbox for manipulating reality in a conscious and deliberate manner.

Our Creative Power lies in our Imagination

 

“Perception as an Interpretation is a Product of the Imagination”

Brain waves

The imagination is the faculty of the mind that we use for creating reality as an internal experience. We first form our experiences by how we imagine them internally to give them meaning, which restructures them by the story we tell ourselves about them that turns them into a reality, which forms how we remember them, and is also used to recollect memories and think about them by replaying them over and over in our mind. So we’re always in the process of creating memory by how we imagine our reality creating our personal experience of it by the story we tell about it, and then by associating our present reality to the memory of the past using it to shape the present to be about the same thing, forming it into the same “type” of story. The story we tell about things, which forms a kind of theme, is what gives our life consistency. Our life’s theme as the primary story we tell about things comes from how we’ve created all our experiences by telling a consistent story about them as a kind of theme. This memory making ability as a form of multiplying and reproducing thematic experiences shaped by meaning and significance, are all done by how we (re)imagine the outer world by shaping it into a consistent storyline.

 
As we go through our day, we are constantly forming associations to memories and using those associations to form similar interpretations of the present. The themes of the past become the program that utilizes our creative imagination with its primary pattern for creating a thematic reality while simultaneously creating ourselves by identifying with our own story about things. As we tell a story about things, we get a sense of ourselves by way of that story, and form our identity out of it. Our identity and the story we act naturally to tell by how we interpret the events of our outer reality is a primary function of the imagination. Our imagination forms our perceptual lens and determines how we see things, and what we see “in” things. We can only see and make sense out of what matches our mental model, and can easily be turned into our story about things. Even when they actually have nothing to do with us or our story, we translate them to mean the same thing. In this way, we’re always shaping other people and events to be “like us”, through the story we tell about them which describes them using the same qualities that we ourselves possess.

 
Just as creative ideas are also received by and formed in the imagination, all memory is replayed and constantly being modified in the imagination. Each time we recall a memory as an association to the present, and use it to shape the present with the same meaning, we also modify the memory by adapting it to a new set of circumstances, and permanently alter it by doing so. While many of us believe memory is accurate and fixed and that we remember them exactly as we created them, and that we recall them in the same way we formed them, in reality memory is constantly being evolved through how we adapt them to the present situations, our maturity level, and our state of mind when applying it. Though we apply memories to an infinite number of new situations as a means of shaping them into congruent experiences, the theme of the memory remains intact and holds true no matter how we change the telling. So if the meaning as a theme of our memory is “I’m not loved”, and the memory becomes a sort of template as a storyline that provides consistent evidence of this based on how we interpret things, then even when we use the same memory in the present to tell the same type of story about it, and we change “how” we tell it, it’ll still “mean” we’re not loved.

Forward-Escape-620x378

Our imagination is the primary creative faculty of the mind that’s used to create our personal experience of an outer, objective reality, making it into a subjective “inner reality” as a personalization of a universal theme. While we all share and have in common the outer reality as a neutral set of events that we experience, each individual sharing the same outer event is creating a unique experience of it by how they filter the event through their paradigm as their perceptual lens that forms it into an interpretation as a variation reshaped to tell a somewhat different story using it. Each person notices different things within the situation, places a different emphasis on them, and organizes them into a new pattern that uses only some of the elements available that lend themselves to telling a certain kind of story. Any element that doesn’t match their storyline, isn’t “seen” (noticed), or is completely ignored, abstracting instead only what can be readily used as the elements of their life’s theme. Through our life’s theme, we form our life’s story, and we not only shape ourselves by way of that story, but shape everyone else by way of it also. Because of this “perceptual lens” that we look through to interpret the world, we shape everyone else to be “like us” and have the same qualities and character that we have, which is necessary to keep telling our story about things, and is the story our mind is designed to tell by how it’s structured. Our mind doesn’t have the ability to perceive things in a different way which is necessary in order to tell a different kind of story.

 
Because of this natural tendency of the human mind to create out of accumulated memories of it’s own making, the imagination, which also has the potential to be able to shape brand new perceptions of reality never experienced before, or as a unique interpretation of the present that’s not based on the past, it’s used instead to repeat the past and maintain redundant patterns that keep it locked into it’s own illusions. The imagination is usually used instead to simply relive whatever we’ve formed a memory of, whether through a living experience, or something we fantasized about, or imagined as thoughts being given to or taught to us by others, and while it still “creates” to a certain extent, it doesn’t create in the sense of being able to determine our own feelings, thoughts, and imaginings to perceive the present as dissociated from the past, and be able to create ourselves in new ways by learning how to tell new stories and evolve ourselves according to those stories.

 
Karma, which is living out of the same thematic forms of memories that recreate the same type of dynamics and behaviors over and over, prevents us from evolving in any measurable form. Instinct, as memory that produces automatic behaviors, is the product of the “lower mind” that we share with the animal kingdom, which lacks use of the higher mind and the ability to create in new and unique ways. Evolution within the animal / physical plane takes eons to produce the smallest of changes which usually come through a form of mutation, or freak accident. We as humans are born with a higher capacity to create ourselves and our reality by how we use the creative capacity of our imagination to break the patterns of memories and form whole new perceptions instead that serve to reshape and evolve our mental paradigm as accumulated memories to new and higher forms of experience. We are not bound to simply living out of our conditioning, but can “choose” to develop ourselves in an intentional and deliberate manner by simply choosing to begin telling a new kind of story that will require us to use latent qualities that will transform and evolve our character to new forms of expression.

This creative ability of the mind is the masterful use of our own imagination to let go of our attachment to our “story about things”, and our identity that formed as a result of our story, and make a conscious decision about the type of person we want to be instead, what qualities we’d have to embrace and bring into expression in order to do that, and what kind of story we would tell by how we acted and lived our life as a result. We can then practice forming experiences of ourselves “as” these qualities and employing these characteristics by imagining them and “acting them out”. Practicing “being that way” through a form of pretending and rehearsing where we get good at forming our new behaviors and practicing them repeatedly to the point where they start coming naturally. We can also set rules for ourselves through a form of moral code that we hold ourselves to that prevent us from repeating and continuing to live out of undesirable perceptions that form us according to them. One of the most standard practices for doing this is to recognize our negative traits and vices, and what positive trait and virtue we’d like to employ instead, and make a conscious effort to transform them using our will. Our will is our ability to first imagine something inwardly then act it out outwardly. In this way, we become self-aware and take the necessary steps to begin creating ourselves with full awareness of what we’re doing and how we’re being.

 
To employ any new idea, first decide you’re going to give up the old behavior and your attachments to it, then simply formulate in your imagination creating a reality out of it, apply it to your everyday situation as an action or behavior of some sort, then imagine the situations that normally stimulated the “old behaviors and attitude”, and systematically employ the “new behavior and attitude” in it’s place. Practice this over and over until it starts becoming natural and easy to do, while simultaneously practicing it in your daily life. By associating a new behavior or perception to the same stimulus or trigger, you don’t change anything or anyone else; you simply change your response to everyone and everything else. All change can only require you to do it. When we require someone else to change in order for us to be able to, we sabotage ourselves, and remain stuck in the same reactive patterns. All change begins inwardly, by changing your self and your perception of things, which then become the template or pathway for outer expression as actual self-directed and intentional behaviors.

Imagination – “As Opposed to Creative Visualization”

eye
The tendency to represent the idea of “imagining something” as “visualizing it”, can make the idea seem fairly confusing. Visualizing indicates forming inner images, pictures and scenes as movies that play out in the mind as a form of anticipated or wished for experience. Then, because its portrayed this way, many get confused as to “how to” visualize, what it means exactly, and believe that it means to see fully detailed, colored images and scenes that play out with precision and detail, and while it certainly can be this way, especially for a well developed imagination, for most people it’s usually much more impressionistic. Most visualization resembles the type of image we see as a reflection in glass or water, or a reflection in a dark, shiny surface where it’s more shadow-like and formed, yet not particularly detailed. This resembles what is referred to as “thought-forms” that exist in the astral field of the mind as shadowy images that we form through thinking about or dwelling on ideas, or recalling a memory of some kind.

 
The imagination however, is a faculty of the mind that forms a full sensory experience that while it’s main component is visual images and impressionistic shapes, it also focuses heavily on hearing and sounds, feelings as intuitive and as touching the surface of material reality, any forms of smells that would be inherent in the experience, and taste whenever appropriate, as well as the internal dialogue as thoughts that we naturally have while engaging in any type of experience and the emotions the experience elicits. Our inner dialogue is what we are telling ourselves ‘about’ the experience that makes it mean something. The imagination takes an inspired idea as unformed, and shapes it into a full 3-D sensory reality that is realistic and believable, and therefore possible. The true use of the imagination however, places the greatest emphasis on “feelings” that we have as a result of the inner experience we are having. The feeling is the full-body intuitive sensation that blends the visual into a holistic experience as a form of memory that is complete with emotions, thoughts and meaning that brings realization around an idea that can only be obtained through the experience of it. This reality formed in the imagination through thinking, creates a form of template that makes us a channel for the imagined idea to become a reality as an outer expression that’s a correspondence to the inner experience.

lost in space

This is the creative power of the mind to create experience by first creating it internally while shaping it with sensory detail and definition that sets the vibratory patterning that attracts and organizes the outer experience as a correspondence. The outer experience is not exact to the imagined one, although it can be, but is rather analogous to the inner experience. It’s of the same nature and theme as the internal experience, yet modified according to the elements available in the immediate surroundings, and the will, personality and interactive quality of those participating in the orchestration of the outer experience. Because the outer requires other people, situations and events, the original vision is modified accordingly as a basic requirement to incorporate the ideas and desires of all who partake in the over-all experience that is co-created as a shared reality.

 
This is why the emphasis is always placed on the “feeling” of the experience rather than the visual aspect. Visually it may be entirely different than you imagined it, yet it will feel the same. It’ll be the same type of idea as a form of theme, which is being illustrated in a modified and varied manner. The feeling, as the vibratory frequency is what composes and structures the experience to be of a certain patterning that beautifully conforms to the influences that everyone participating contributes, while maintaining the same basic idea as the essence of the over-all experience. You will recognize the fulfillment of your wish, not by what it looks like, but by what it feels like as you realize you’re in the process of having it.

How we Form our Thoughts – The Role Suggestion Plays in our Daily Lives

awakening

I often get asked “can everyone be hypnotized”? Or are there some people who can’t? What this shows me is that most people don’t understand what hypnotism is or how our mind naturally operates by way of it. A better question would be, “is there anytime we’re NOT being hypnotized”? Many people spend the better part of their lives in a constant state of hypnosis, being basically unconscious of how they’re being influenced by everyone around them, and how they’re systematically “given” thoughts, that they then adopt as their own, personalize them by how they imagine them, which simultaneously modifies their paradigm by incorporating them. These thoughts then become our own, and we use them to program ourselves by way of them by simply thinking about them. Our thoughts, as our internal dialogue is the most basic form of self-hypnosis. We program ourselves by way of our own thinking. In order to understand how this works, all we have to do is look at what hypnosis is, and what laws of the mind it operates by, and then learn how to recognize those same processes as they operate in our daily lives.

 
All hypnosis can be thought of as the primary means through which a thought as a suggestion is introduced into the mind which is receptive to it, meaning, there’s no form of resistance to it. We have two aspects of the mind that are always operating in tandem to create our experience and turn ideas that are introduced into it into full fledged inner realities by imagining them. The subconscious, which is the powerhouse of the system, is programmed and operates out of memory and produces all our natural behaviors by regulating our emotional state which is attached to memories of various sorts. As emotions are stimulated in us, we reference memories associated to those emotional states and use them to perceive our outer situation. The subconscious is passive and receptive, which means as long as information is delivered in its language as an imagined reality with strong feelings or emotional content, it doesn’t resist, argue against, edit or analyze the information, but simply accepts it as an “actual reality” that it then utilizes like an actual memory producing a whole series of behaviors out of it that act to produce it as an outer experience, while simultaneously forming our perceptual lens to include the idea, connecting us to that idea in our outer environment.

gears
The self-conscious aspect is the “thinking mind” that forms our internal dialogue as what most think of as our “thoughts”, that are a form of self-talk, and acts as the gatekeeper to the subconscious by examining and editing everything to decide what’s allowed in to take hold, and what’s resisted or declined, and therefore prevented from taking hold. Whenever we’re in a relaxed state and have no strong objections to the information being received, we are in a passive state, and readily allow ideas in. Likewise, whenever information is delivered with a strong emotional component, especially fear, the emotion overrides the logical aspect, and is instantly taken in and allowed to take hold. Emotion is like a hook that seats the idea in the psyche where its then “dwelled on” and thought about extensively. The emotion married to an idea is what determines how we develop that idea in our imagination through the meaning we give it. The meaning shapes the story we tell about it, and the emotion intensifies it. Through this process all memories are produced by emotional states of some sort, and the emotion activates the memory associated with it as our perceptual lens that restructures our outer objective reality into a personalized subjective reality by how we interpret it. Memories are an interpretation mechanisms that provide us with instant realities as a means of creating consistent types of experiences based on them.

 
The primary forms of hypnotic induction that most commonly take place in our daily lives is various forms of entertainment (especially ones that come as movies or virtual images with music and sound), researching information (with a sense of anticipation), shock or fright of some kind, experiences that have strong emotional impact, and mental entrainment that comes from a strong feeling of familiarity or resonating with someone or something, being seduced, and of course, the most powerful of all, falling in love or being mesmerized by someone or an idea about something. Naturally, fear causes us to close down, stop, avoid, move away from, or hide in some way, and love, being compelling, draws us towards things with a desire to become one with them. Both extremes, love and fear, control our thoughts and we form internal images that first produce and amplify those feelings, then act to intensify and increase them, giving us more of them. Our thoughts act as suggestions to our subconscious mind which converts them into imaginary realities that it perceives as being real or actual experiences. Because the subconscious operates out of memory and forms behavioral patterns based on memory, it turn imaginary realities into actual memories and creates automatic and natural behaviors out of them. When this happens we are living a great deal of our life out of an illusion of our own making.

gene
The basis of hypnosis is the willing intake of an idea as a suggestion that has a strong sensory component that invokes a strong emotional response, intensifying it, that we take into our mind and begin developing it by imagining it as an actual reality or conceptualization that makes it believable, forming what the subconscious mind mistakes for an actual event or outer reality. An idea given to the subconscious as an actual life-like reality with strong emotions (making it seem actual), it interprets the same way it does an actual reality as an outer experience, and uses it as memory to form its programming. The imagined memory programs the subconscious mind with new patterns that become our perceptual lens and connects us to those same types of emotional patterns in our environment, magnetizing us to them. By imagining an idea with strong sensations, incorporates that idea as a modification to our overall mental programming as our paradigm, giving you a new way of perceiving things and new behaviors for creating and cooperatively participating in that reality as an actual experience or possibility. We naturally begin anticipating more of those same types of experiences, setting an expectation for them, and being able to create more experiences out of them by how we perceive and interpret things. We only pull out of any situation the elements that can be reshaped into our pattern as a storyline by how we interpret it to give it meaning and significance and use it as the basis for telling our story about it, while ignoring anything that doesn’t fit in.

 
If you simply sit and observe your own thoughts for awhile, you’ll notice that most of them came from some form of outer source. Even the ones that form your paradigm as the thematic storyline you’re always telling yourself about things, probably came to you through something that was said to you, some movie or video you watched, the lyrics of a song, an article you read, an idea you studied, or something you learned in school. Most of our thoughts come as suggestions from others that we continue developing by how we think about them and evolve them through various life situations or stages, and acquire them as our own, constructing our paradigm by way of them.

Becoming more Conscious: How we Replace Reality with Illusions

When we say that we tend to live a life of illusions that we mistaken for reality, many don’t know for sure what this means, or how it is that we all do it in a very natural way. Because our mind functions largely out of what we call the unconscious aspect, we tend to use our mind in a very natural way without any direct awareness of what we’re doing. This general sense of confusion is compounded by the paradox that exists between the two aspects of the mind called the conscious and subconscious, where the subconscious operates out of memory, yet is not creative in nature, and only creates memory out of “actual experiences”, whereas the conscious mind, which is the self-aware aspect that also has the ability to be present and stay centered in the actual reality going on around it, spends most of its time consumed with thoughts of the past that it imagines over and over as different scenarios that create a form of “false reality” as an imagined one, that not only prevents us from actually experiencing the present reality, but serves to provide the subconscious with a form of virtual experience that it utilizes just like an actual memory.

The subconscious mind isn’t creative like the conscious, in the sense that it doesn’t have the ability to “make stuff up”, and doesn’t tell stories about things like the conscious mind does, and forms instead a kind of objective memory as important information about the environment that it designs behaviors around as a means of existing within it that are appropriate and necessary for its survival and over-all well-being. The subconscious mind, which is always running the normal biological functions of the body, regulates all of our natural and automatic behaviors that we do without having to think about them, and therefore remain largely unaware of them. This is a very basic form of evolution that’s being played out as the internal (body) being constantly adjusted by the environment (external) to become equivalent. The subconscious mind is the aspect of the mind that’s always connected to and exchanging information with everything around us through emotions. Emotions can be thought of as the physical equivalent to vibration as qualities of consciousness. Information as a vibratory stimulation to the body produces body chemistry as emotions. Emotions produce automatic behaviors that are a form of instinct. Because of this, the emotional states that we live out of are always producing and determine how we act and behave, most of which happens without our direct awareness.

The self conscious aspect which is also the creative component, and has the ability to literally “program” the subconscious through deliberate use of the imagination, the faculty of the mind where we’re capable of creating internal realities that don’t actually exist outwardly in the present, but instead of realizing this powerful ability to program ourselves by way of what we think about and imagine, we tend to use this ability in a very haphazard way, by dwelling in old memories, replaying them over and over in our mind by imagining them, which stimulates our emotions in response (that are the vibratory equivalent) to our own imaginings (creation), that simultaneously form a virtual reality that the subconscious interprets to be an actual reality (the emotional reaction is cause by the subconscious reaction) and uses it just like it does and actual memory that programs it with the behaviors inherent in the reality we’re imagining. Memories (virtual or actual) provide the subconscious mind with whole patterns for producing analogous realities.

creating spheres
Whatever we think about, we are systematically developing a whole array of behaviors out of that we perform without actual awareness of what we’re doing. Anything offered up to the subconscious mind in its own language as a reality, becomes our natural way of being. We act on ourselves with our own imaginings which is perceived “as if” they’re real and actual experiences, and tune ourselves simultaneously to the emotional vibration of those thoughts, acting them out be how we behave, which connects us to the same type of reality as a pattern or “type” of experience in everyone and everything around us. The emotional component as the frequency, vibrates that same emotion in anyone who has programmed themselves to a similar story as a thematic reality. Emotions are part of whole patterns as memory that’s an idea that systematically activates the thoughts as visual imagery that match it, and produce an inner experience as an imaginary reality that replaces the actual one, while stimulating the type of thoughts that go with the emotion, and thereby connect elements and people who are programmed to act out together the same type of realities and living dramas as a joint experience that tells the same type of story.

Our current thoughts, which often have nothing to do with the present, and prevent us from being present in our lives, creates a false reality in place of the true, objective reality. The imagined scenarios we run through our mind that causes us to feel the way we do, are self-made illusions that we mistaken for real while forming an attachment to them as a kind of love for our creation, that become delusional as a result. We are always “making our reality” and creating how we experience the outer world by how we exist in relationship with it and by how we “act on ourselves” to program ourselves to the reality of our imagining, usually based on past memories that had a strong emotional impact, that we continue to live out of and use to create more of the same type of experiences long after they’re gone. They no longer exist except in our imagination, which keeps them alive by giving them our constant attention and building our identity by way of the story we tell out of them, usually, without ever realizing that that’s what we’re actually doing.

The-Knowledge-of-the-Planets-Cameron-Gray
To bring this idea into practice in your daily life, simply start by examining your own thought processes that you normally do without thinking about (paradox intended). Notice what filters you use as a form of judgment that reforms everything according to a certain type of story that you use to explain and describe things that make them mean something specific. Notice how you use the memories formed from past experiences to recreate experiences in the present that are of the same nature and give you more of the same type of experience as the past experience. Allow yourself to notice what type of story you’re always in the process of telling yourself about things, and realize how often this story runs as a means of how you normally think about things.

Once you become aware of your own tendencies, simply learn to relax your mind, pull your attention away from your habitual thought patterns, and focus on your breathing, becoming present in your body. Then release all automatic thoughts and become aware of your actual environment. Pay attention to what’s around you while continuing to refrain from thinking about them. Instead, simply notice things in terms of how they feel. Notice how you feel in relationship with your environment. And simply experience things as they exist in their own right within the present moment. Don’t allow your judgmental mind to kick in and begin telling a story about them, or go off into an imaginary tangent, simply observe them from a neutral position, and allow impressions to rise in your body in response to them. Interact with them as they are in the present through what they are actually stimulating in you in response to them. Allow new feelings to rise without restricting them, and be willing to interact in new ways creating a new type of experience that will allow you to sense yourself in new ways. As you do this, allow yourself to realize that you can easily begin to learn how to tell a different type of story, and become a different type of person through that story, by simply letting go of the past and the story you formed about life from the experiences of the past, and remain present in your life, accepting it as it is, and interacting with it based on what its warranting in you in relationship to it.

We can all learn how to tell a new kind of story by simply realizing the one we’re currently always in the process of telling and what kind of person it has developed us to be through the telling, and decide instead what type of a person you want to be, then learn how to look at life through the lens of that quality, and begin interacting in new ways, creating new experiences of ourselves that become the new memory that we use to program ourselves in a progressive and decisive manner. In order to develop ourselves, we can decide what qualities we want to develop, then intentionally embody that state, see life through the perceptual lens of that state that “sees” that same quality in everything else, then interact with that same quality in others, creating experiences out of it that we draw into ourselves and acquire as actual experiences of ourselves and others. Memories created through experiences, are a primary form of self-programming, and work through an accumulative affect. As we begin acquiring new experiences of ourselves that begin telling a new type of story, we begin accumulating new memories that act to transform the old ones and we evolve ourselves accordingly.

Tetragrammaton – The Sacred Name of God – “The Sacred Formula for Creating Reality using our Imagination”

sacred_geometry_i_by_phaedris-d55ig4y

In sacred geometry, all ideas are represented by a geometric shape (the chemical structure of the physical world) or composite image as a formula of information that’s very dynamic in nature because each shape represents a principle and each composite image a relationship. This is further compounded by the relationship it forms with everything else through a specific application, which reformulates it and modifies it even further. Because shapes represent principles and laws, even though they form an infinite number of variations through the conditions, circumstances and situations they’re being applied to and expressing through, they still hold true to the same basic operations as a mode of behavior or creative processes. This dynamic quality of laws maintains creativity in the most fundamental sense that each application forms a unique variation of the same principles each time they’re expressed. While this is easy to see from one individual to another, even with the same individual perceiving the same idea will alter their interpretation from one moment to the next. This dynamic creative quality is what prevents sacred geometry from being considered a “true science”, which simply means true to the paradigm currently being used to define science, which is from a purely material and non-creative perspective of a repetitious application that produces a similar and predictable result each time its applied. For this same reason, psychology has never really been accepted as a true “science” because the mind operates according to the true universal laws, and each individual will produce a unique and varied response to the same stimulus and will create a unique interpretation of any idea they’re presented with based on how they exist in relationship to that idea. The interesting part of course, is that this is exactly the way it’s meant to be. The spiritual realm which is comprised of pure consciousness is creative in nature and never repetitious or fixed. It not only honors individuality, but requires each person to “think for themselves” in order to interpret the meaning of spiritual texts and the encoded scientific language of philosophical mathematics with is intuitive in nature.

 
The material world is represented by the number 4 as the law of the Tetrad, symbolized by the square, cube or diamond. In terms of its bio-structure it’s a cube. It has many other obvious correlations to the 4 elements, the 4 stages of matter, the 4 phases of the moon, the 4 seasons, 4 directions on a compass, 4 dimensions, 4 worlds/planes (Archetypal, Creative, Formative, and Material), 4 stages of Alchemy, 4 classifications of the zodiac, and so on, all of course, relating to or serving to govern the material realm. Sacred geometry also forms a dynamic and direct correlation to all other forms of spiritual sciences as the “keys” to decoding universal law as the guide to creating within the material realm, such as the Kabbalah and Tarot.

 
The Tetragrammaton is considered a sacred formula as the “Name of God”, written as: JOD-HE-VAU-HE, or IHVH, which creates a tetrapolar magnet paraphrased by the “Tetragrammation” and “Adonai”. Naturally, these letters represent the four fundamental principles as the four Elements, that form a series of associated correspondences.

 

JOD = Spirit = Fire = Will/Archetype (as a compelling idea)
HE = Soul = Air = Intellect (conceptualization)
VAU = Body = Water = Feeling Sensation / Emotion
HE = Unification = Earth = the Realization of Will-intellect-feeling (imagination) as a material reality or experience.

JOD-HE-VAU-HE is the basic key to creation as “the Word made flesh that walked amongst us”. It’s the number of realization. 4 represents lawfulness in every science, and every science is analogous to this number. It represents the power “to know”, a verbal symbol for the Conscious Energy that brings all things into existence. In the most basic sense, it represents the creative imagination that takes a compelling idea, holds it in the mind’s eye, shapes it into a conceptualization as a living reality with sensory information that stimulates an equivalent emotion, that becomes the basis for producing that same idea as an outer experience. The power of a word is based solely on what internal image it provokes in the individual mind as an interpretation, and what emotional reaction that person has to their own imagined thoughts.

 
Thought as an internal image is always matched with a feeling-emotion that makes it into an actual experience. Whatever we imagine, we create as an internal experience of that idea as modified by adapting it to our current mental paradigm and specific circumstances which personalizes it by making (remaking) it about us somehow. All experience, created first internally then projected outwards, is a basic form of self-expression. As universal ideas come “into us” and “through us” in order to find expression in the material world, we reshape them into a personalized variation through the basic process of how we enter into relationship with that idea, and modify it by how we apply it by imagining it. Our imagination is how we give form to vibration as sound, which is a word that’s either spoken internally as a thought, or received externally through actual speech. Words that form our language and how we communicate ideas are first learned through external means that form the basis for our internal thoughts.

71138-sacred-geometry
The “secret” to all the Magical Arts (Science that include the spiritual realm) lies in the will, and the will is the imagination. We will something into being by concentrating on an idea with emotional intensity and by forming it into a sensory experience. We “feel the idea as if it’s real”. This is what’s commonly referred to in Spiritual Sciences as “shaping Astral Light” into thought-forms, which when concentrated enough; actually develop an electromagnetic energy field that’s magnetic and attractive. We shape ideas into physical form as the means of being the channel through which ideas can come into the world as a personal creation of a universal or archetypal idea.

 
Our ordinary emotional thoughts constantly running through our mind at any given moment are the most basic use of our creative ability. We not only shape ideas as personal creations in our mind’s eye, but we also tune ourselves to those ideas as a vibratory frequency. All vibration as consciousness forms patterns as a structuring mechanism inherent in energy itself. These patterns are formed by vibration as ideas, and are simultaneously transmitted or sent out (into the space around us) as a form of subliminal “request” or wish that says “give me more of this idea”. We are always drawing to ourselves more of the same type of experiences as those we think about and run through our mind on a regular basis. By taking control of our ordinary thoughts and using our imagination in an intentional way to think about desirable experiences, we begin tuning ourselves to those ideas and become the attractive factor for connecting to them in others and our environment. Just as we can all “sense the energy” around us in our environment or the vibes someone is putting off as an emotional quality, we are always transmitting our emotional states and thoughts as mental impressions to everyone around us at the subliminal (subconscious) level. Our emotions are what connects us to everything else. Emotions always stimulate in the imagination equivalent thoughts that form the realities created out of those emotional states. Our emotional state is always acting to stimulate that same state in others who share the same type of emotions as we do. This stimulation, also known as resonance, draws people and elements together that share the same vibration and can easily work together through their interaction to create the same type of experience as the drama inherent in the emotion. Whatever emotion we’re feeling at any given time is awakening that same feeling state in everything around us by “vibrating it”. Only those who share the same emotions are attracted to us, and us to them. People who don’t live out of the same emotional states aren’t affected by us. There’s no chemistry between us when we meet them. They don’t stand out, and so go largely unnoticed by us.

 
Our body, connected to our environment through our heart, and programmed with mental impressions as thoughts (brain) that naturally accompany the emotions, tune us to the frequency of those emotional thoughts as a form of biological antenna, that draws into it only what matches it. While many think that we generate out thoughts, the fact of the matter is, we actually “receive” them from the space around as a form of memory. Not as actual, personal memories from our childhood, but as memories that match the memories as a general theme we formed from our childhood.

Torus shape
Vibration forms patterns as tendencies that shape our perception and how we interpret things in order to create an experience out of them that becomes a personal memory. The type of memories we form as children is based on our soul’s vibration as our perceptual lens that’s programmed by certain “themes”. These thematic patterns are generic in nature, and lend themselves as the basic shaping mechanism for interpreting experience to give it meaning, that forms a story as the application of that theme to our current life circumstances and conditions. We build up memories as the expression of our vibratory frequency that first establish, then act to strengthen and intensify the theme, which forms the basis for all our stories, explanations, or descriptions about things that create a consistent and congruent reality. Thoughts that pop into our head out of no where, or that are formulated when anticipating or wondering about something, come from the universal mind of archetypes as a kind of library of thoughts, often referred to as the Akashic plane, and are not actually self-generated but rather tuned into, transmitted and received. This is the reason why we tend to always think about the same type of thoughts, and recreate similar scenarios over and over as imagined possibilities for experiences.

 
The way to take control of this creative ability that we all have, is to learn how to “manage our own thoughts”, and use our imagination to form sensory realities out of ideas we “want” to experience. Likewise our emotional states can be intentionally created by how we use our mind and body. What we focus on, what we tell ourselves about what we focus on that makes it mean something, and what we’re doing with our physiology, which is always a direct reflection of how we’re feeling and what we’re thinking about, are always in alignment (unified) to form our experience of reality. Change any one, and the other two changes automatically.

 
This principle of mind-over-matter is represented in the principle that naturally issues forth out of the Tetrad, called the Pentad, pentagon, or Pentacle, also known as the five-pointed star. Each point in the star, formed as a triangle of equal measure, aligned in a form of hierarchical structure, represents the “fifth element” as the Quintessence or Akashic principle of the higher mind’s ability to control and direct the four elements to create a new reality that simultaneously reforms their physical composition as the equivalent to their imagined thoughts. This ability forms the basis for self-mastery which is necessary for Personal Transformation as Alchemy. Through deliberate control of our own mind, we can reformulate the properties of the natural elements of the Astral plane into new configurations that express in new ways, and thereby resolve karma as subconscious memory (repetitive tendencies) into new patterns that form new experiences of ourselves by way of self-created realities.
