How to Know God and Ascend in Spirit to Higher Dimensions

In order to intelligently consider this idea we have to start by defining what we mean by “God”, because this idea is different for everyone. The word God is being used in this context to represent a higher power of universal consciousness as the laws and principles that govern the entire cosmos. God is not an entity or Deity, but the Universal Mind out of which all material phenomena is contained as a mental construct or holographic projection. As humans we have been bestowed with the same mind (conscious self-awareness) and have the ability to “know God” by becoming one with It in Mind. We only attain “knowledge of” something by becoming one with it in spirit and the same as it in mind and experiencing it from “within it as it”. We look out at the world through the same eyes and level of self-awareness. In this context “it” isn’t referring to an actual or single being, but the consciousness as a mental state that’s formed within as a direct and intimate experience of the same nature and kind that includes “all” of reality as a singularity or whole movement.

What we refer to as the spiritual world or realm is invisible to the physical senses and can only be known directly through thought and self-awareness. All thoughts are formed in the mind as an inner speech or voice that shapes an image of the thought in the imagination. All thoughts are formed as a product of or direct reflection of our state of mind or mood. Whatever state we exist in as a general rule determines what type of ideas we form a natural connection with and act as a host for bringing into expression as our internal representations that form a kind of symbolic template as a “theme” and metaphor for producing as an equivalent outer experience of reality. While we have a tendency to believe that the body gives rise to our mind and produces our thoughts, in reality, our body merely acts as a vessel or conduit for our mind to inhabit and use as the means of expressing and creating experiences of our “self” through.

Both our mind and higher human soul are not fixed ideas generated by a finite set of conditions as located within the space-time continuum, but are energetic formations that are constantly undergoing a process of evolution and transformation as acquiring and integrating different qualities and states of consciousness. The body and the personality of the body, often referred to as our lower, animal soul and subconscious, is merely the means through which the higher soul enters into a state of “separation with itself” as an “illusion produced by the mind” in order to create an “experience” of itself. All experience is created out of a state of duality as a projection of complementary opposites that act “on” each other to transform each other. We only acquire knowledge of ourselves through how we create our experiences. All “phenomenon” is created out of vibration which is the movement as a dance between the masculine (electric) and feminine (magnetic) aspects of the “same thing” that work together to produce the illusion of an “inner and outer” as being different and often unrelated. The foundation of vibration is movement, which can only occur through separation.

The mind is an aspect of the soul, and like the soul, exists on multiple levels simultaneously and is formed out of the same qualities and archetypal ideas that operate in a universal fashion as laws and principles. We have an individual mind, a family or group mind, race mind, cultural mind, and a cosmic or universal mind, all of which operate in harmony with each other based on a shared theme and type or level of consciousness that they all exist within. The mind is the “medium” through which we connect with the greater mind of humanity and the cosmos. Our physical body and our personality born out of the body, merely houses our mind and soul and acts as a “tuning mechanism” for “drawing in” consciousness from the atmosphere or astral plane of light that’s all around us. We not only tune ourselves to be a receiver and transducer through our thoughts and feelings, but also through expanding from an awareness of ourselves as being a body to being a part of a greater mind that encompasses the whole of reality in which we play a part.

In order to expand into the greater mind of humanity and the cosmos, we have to transcend our limited perception of ourselves as being a single personality, and realize that we’re also playing a role in a much larger dynamic where we’re a part of other people’s lives and serve to provide them with certain “types” of learning experiences as well. We have to expand our awareness beyond our sense of self that’s oriented to our body, which can only be done by purifying ourselves of negative emotions that keep us absorbed in playing out unconscious dramas that enhance and accentuate the feeling of separation. When we internalize everything to make it about us personally, we construct the walls of our own prison and condemn ourselves to a life of solitary confinement. It’s our emotions and passions that keep us locked into an unconscious state where we don’t realize we have the power to transcend them.

Emotions only exist as natural forces on the material plane where they keep us tied into a form of animal instinct where we use the creative power of our mind to produce whole realities as stories about ourselves and life that are fantasies. As long as emotions control our mind and how we think, determining what type of reality we create internally, we remain imprisoned by our own delusions. All emotional and psychological pain is self-administered when we stay shrouded in the cloak of our own ignorance as to our true, divine nature. As long as we continue to create an experience of our “self” as being our “body”, and therefore bound to the unconscious state of the body, we’re consumed with selfishness and remain nearsighted.

The only way we can truly “know” anything is by becoming “like” it. Like can only know what’s like itself. Like only has the power to produce more of what’s like itself. So in order to “know” God, we have to become “like” god. God only exists through mind and it’s only through our mind that we can become one with God. Not as an individual located within a single body and specific set of conditions and circumstances, but by expanding outside of ourselves to become a greater part of a conscious whole. We’re not only “having and experience” ourselves, but we’re also playing a significant role in a greater idea that provides a certain type of experience for others. We play a part in a greater pattern and are providing others with the means necessary for them to grow themselves in relationship with us. We play a part in our immediate family, community, society, and all of humanity. By expanding our awareness of ourselves as being a part of a greater whole, we can begin identifying with being a higher, universal being.

When we expand our mind and perception of our self to be of a more universal nature, we not only sense ourselves in a much more profound way, but we become conscious and aware of our part in the grand scheme of things. We begin relating and identifying with being a universal soul and take on the perspective and attitude of being of service to others and acting in a way that serves the highest benefit of everyone involved. We begin thinking of ourselves in a much more non-personal way. We begin putting thought into how it is we’re affecting and influencing others, aiding them in their growth somehow, or demonstrating a higher way of being, and it changes our perception of ourselves and gives us a renewed sense of purpose.

As long as we’re self-consumed and live out of dramas that self-administer our own pain and suffering by somehow making everything about us and taking things personal, we remain confined in the darkness of ignorance. As long as we grieve over the “bad hand” we feel we were dealt in life, or wallow in our own demise and self-pity, we remain a prisoner within the confines of our own mind. The very foundation of ignorance as an “error in self-awareness and realization” comes through selfishness and a reluctance to play our role harmoniously within a much greater idea that’s playing out. This is what it means to realize that you’re not your body living an insignificant life in a mundane situation, but are a universal being that has had many bodies, personalities, and different life experiences that served to shape you through your part in an ongoing cosmic story.

Creating the Experience of Becoming One with the Higher Mind of God

We can only attain knowledge through direct experience. In order to understand this idea, we have to bring it into practice as an experience. Here are a couple of methods you can use to begin learning how to look at your life differently and sense yourself in a much more expanded and powerful way.

Third Person Perspective: In any situation of your daily life, take a moment and instead of experiencing it within yourself looking out with all of your usual self-dialogue going on, imagine watching yourself from the distance and how you would appear to another person. Step outside of yourself and view the situation from a distant perspective where you don’t make anything that’s going on personal, but instead view it in as objective a manner possible. Imagine it as if it’s a movie where you’re not the main star or co-star, but simply playing one part of a bigger story. Dissociate from your body and personality and see yourself as just another person in a much larger situation, and watch how it changes your perspective on things and what your life seems to be about. Do this repeatedly throughout your day until you start getting good at it.

Meditation: The spiritual world of invisible consciousness can only be known through thought that’s felt inwardly. We can only know God by entering into the silence of our own mind. This means we have to quiet our own “thinking” as rambling thoughts formed through a chain of association that come in an automatic way. It’s our own internal dialogue fueled by habitual tendencies that create both a sense of separation from the whole, and our self as being our personality and conditioning. As we quiet our thoughts and become completely calm and fully relax our body (tension comes from thoughts that produce emotion in the body), our mind expands as an awareness that moves us outside of our body and into the space around us.

We begin expanding out into the space all around and sense ourselves as part of a greater whole. We sense ourselves as being a part of a greater mind and enter into the flow of universal consciousness all around us and we form a new, expanded sense of ourselves. We sense ourselves through a whole new way of being. We lose all sense of our self and become one with creation. We become all aspects that are playing complementary roles in a much bigger picture. We become pure presence, which strangely enough fills us with a feeling of bliss and euphoria. We realize that all of our pain and suffering results from the fact that we’re confined to a body. In this moment we know we’re actually a soul within a body and not limited to the body itself. We know this not as a theory that’s difficult to even grasp in practical terms, but from the direct and immediate experience of it as being it. It’s the “experience” that brings realizations that instantly transform you and your entire way of thinking and perceiving.

Conclusion

Through the experience of becoming one with the greater mind, attained only in meditation, introspection, and contemplation, a whole new series of realizations occur spontaneously. We learn truth from within the experience of it and so we never doubt it again. As we experience ourselves from within the silence of the greater mind that expands our awareness of our self, a whole new reality opens up that’s fresh and invigorating. We feel renewed and our purpose in life as a divine being becomes intimately clear and we fall in love with ourselves because we love how it feels to be who we really are. We realize that we’re not here to be consumed in constant personal dramas, but to play a significant and meaningful role in serving the whole of humanity in as fluid and harmonious way as possible. We step fully into ourselves as divine beings of a noble nature here to set humanity free by transcending the illusions of the emotional, animal subconscious that confines us to darkness by identifying with a specific animal body and point in time.

Penetrating the Secret Nature of the Soul and the Four Worlds or Planes of Existence

       Throughout the major Spiritual texts of the world, we’re given higher knowledge in its symbolic form as the universal laws that form the keys to the origins of our Soul and the creation of the universe as a unified whole. The same laws that are used to create us are also used to create all of life. In order to “know” the universe and the meaning of life, all we have to do is look within at the creative nature of our own Soul in terms of laws and principles that are not only used to create us in material form, but also as the means by which the higher, human Soul is always in the process of creating itself by way of material forms.

       This primary process for the creation of all life by the human Soul is symbolically represented in Esoteric Sciences as the 4 Planes or “worlds”. While many of us have been taught that names in spiritual texts refer to actual people or entities, the fact is they’re not a name at all, but rather a verbal, numerical, and geometrical code or formula.Whatever name is being used in reference to “God” (which has 72 names), isn’t referring to a different God or version of God, but rather to the formula as an operation being used in the story as an allegory. The most primary Law of Creation as an encoded operation is represented by the “4 letter name of God”(4 representing the created world) known as IHVH, with the “I” often being exchanged with “Y”.

       These 4 letters are a formula for creating reality that ultimately represent what’s referred to as the “4 Worlds”(in the Kabbalah and Tarot) as planes of existence that describe how an “idea”becomes the metaphorical basis for reality. This four letter name of God corresponds with the four primary Elements that form the basis for producing a material reality out of an idea or thought. Anytime someone is using a “name of God” in reference to what many interpret as meaning a specific Being, usually called “He” (indicating a man-like being), it simply demonstrates a fundamental misunderstanding of the true Nature of God and their own nature as a Soul that’s bestowed with the higher capacities of the mind needed in order to self-create. The Soul doesn’t exist as a finite being limited to a particular physical body and personality, but exists as more of an “idea” it creates of itself as a form of archetype.

       All symbolic or metaphorical ideas have an infinite number of translations and applications because they have to be “interpreted by the individual” in order to be understood, and we can only use and apply what we have a practical understanding of. Laws themselves only describe metaphorical ideas and the processes as operations that ultimately result in a material manifestation of some kind. All of what we call “creation” comes by taking what exists originally in an archetypal, universal, or symbolic form as an ideal, and drawing it into the mind of the individual Soul where it’s then adapted to the identity and mental paradigm of the Soul, modifying it into a unique form of the same type of idea necessary to apply it to the everyday life and situation of the Soul, modifying it even further. It then results in the manifestation of the same basic type of idea as a unique form and version. Once an archetypal idea is used to create a material form as the reality of that idea, the soul then creates an experience of it and absorbs it back into itself as a memory of itself. Once an idea is transformed into a memory as an experience, it then becomes an inherent part of the Soul’s mind and physical constitution.

       The Soul originates and issues forth from the higher plane of universal archetypes and creates itself as a new and individual archetype that’s of a “unique and diverse nature”. As we borrow an idea from the higher, universal realm of archetypes as the means of creating within the lower, material realm, by producing a personal experience of it, the Soul then “transforms the memory” back into a generalized, universal form,which can then be used as the means for creating numerous other experiences of the same type of idea. The human Soul is eternal and universal in nature, and is formed out of integrated experiences as thematic (universal) ideas that can be readily applied to many different bodies, personalities, conditions,circumstances, and situations to create the same “type of experiences”. All memory exists as a theme that can be used to create through numerous applications as a process of adaptation and modification that produces an infinite number of variations that still hold true to the originating idea.

       The memory of a tree, for example, isn’t retained in the soul as a particular tree, but as a memory of trees in general.The Soul borrows an idea from the universal plane of archetypes as the means of creating a personalized reality and then draws the memory of that specialized idea back up the planes of formation returning it to its universal, archetypal form as the Soul’s memory used to create itself. All material reality is created out of universal concepts as the means of forming an individual expression and is then returned back to a universal memory “within” the Soul where it resides as a form of thematic idea that can be applied and adapted to an infinite number of situations to create in both a unique and universal manner simultaneously. As we create at the personal level we’re also creating at the universal level of mass consciousness shared by all of humanity.

The Hierarchical Structure of the Mind as 4 Levels of Reality

       The 4 planes of existence form a hierarchy of upper and lower planes that move an idea in a purely potential state as an unformed, invisible ideal “down” into a created and visible form where it can be “experienced” as the “self” through the reality of the Soul.These 4 planes are “mental states” of degrees of density that undergo several stages of adaptation and modification to produce the personal reality of the Soul. The highest plane is the World of Archetypes as ideals in their potential form, the next step down is the Creative World as attributes and qualities,then the Formative World of adaptation and modification, and the Material World of Action. The 4 letters in the name of God as IHVH, and the 4 Elements of the natural world correspond to these 4 Worlds as Will, Intelligence, sensation and feelings, and actions or deeds.

       The Archetypal World exists as universal ideas that are unformed and available in a purely potential state, providing the raw, basic idea as a metaphor used to create with. These are the “root notions” inherent in the innermost nature of the Universal Conscious Energy as Primordial Intelligence. Archetypes are the ideas and information used to produce all material manifestations as a cohesive and interrelated reality. The idea of a bed, for example, represents the idea of lying down or sleeping. In the idea of lying down is embodied the “will to lie down”, which forms the root-idea as a concept for making all different types of beds or couches. Out of this one basic idea, an infinite number of variations are produced that serve the purpose of lying down.

         All creation begins with a desire and willful act to create where the Soul chooses an idea, draws that idea down into the next lower plane of the mind, where it proceeds to define it through attributes and qualities that act to form it as a material object for having the experience of lying down. This is the plane of the higher Will that exists in a“potential state”, and is represented by the Element of Fire. In the 4 letter name of God, it represents the first letter of “I”, which is used by the Soul by becoming one with it (drawing it down into the individual mind) in spirit,and using it to produce a reality of itself in material form. Our entire material reality is produced by the Soul which acts as the “medium” and vehicle for producing reality out of universal concepts. As we create a reality of a specific type of idea, we then associate with our creation, forming our identity (“I am”) out of it.

       The second plane is the “Creative World”, where the universal idea is turned into a specialized pattern through the process of adaptation. The idea of lying down becomes the mental pattern for creating some kind of special bed. The Creative Plane contains all the possible patterns for beds that have ever been thought of or created by someone else in the past (memory) or that exists in the present (mass consciousness),but not those that haven’t been thought of yet. This is the mental plane of thought that formulates metaphorical ideas into an actual idea that’s then brought down into the World of Formation to actually be constructed as a material form. Here a new idea for a bed to lie in can be formed as an actual idea that serves as a “personal creation” that’s of a unique nature. This world represents the attributes and qualities that go into producing an actual mental idea as a unique variation of a bed to lie down in. This is the world of fluid plasticity of what we refer to as the “cosmic mind-stuff” or Astral Light that’s shaped by the mind into new patterns. This plane is represented by the Water Element and is the first “H” in the name IHVH.

       The third plane is the Formative World,which is also commonly referred to as the Astral Plane of formation, where the idea as a specialized pattern is formed in the imagination as the internal vision that’s used to produce an actual bed of a unique nature. This is the Plane of constructive powers. Here, all ideas are formed within the mind in order to become a reality. All creative processes begin in the imagination of the individual on this plane. Within this plane as a level of the mind, an idea is firmly formed as an actual reality infused with the life-force of the Soul and takes on vibratory activities as the means for organizing the Elements on the plane of manifestation. This is the plane of action where cosmic patterns are actualized as material forms. This plane forms the “V” in the name IHVH, and is represented by the Element of Air, which results from combining Fire and Water in different degrees, and is associated with “breath” as the life-giving force of all creation. The internal image formed in the imagination casts an idea into the Astral Light where it forms the etheric body as the thematic blueprint for producing as a tangible form. All material forms are created by how an invisible field of organized information reflects light.

      The4th World is the Material World of Action as the plane of “actual manifestation” of the mind that we experience with our senses and produces an outer experience that’s equivalent to the inner idea used to create it. Here the idea of a bed and lying down provide the pattern as a specialized version that’s produced as the actual bed itself, which we then lie down in to create an experience of willed action. This is the basic creative process that the Soul uses to create reality and itself by way of that reality. The Soul uses its willpower to “borrow ideas” from the cosmic plane in order to create in what seems like a unique way. This plane forms the second “H” in the name IHVH as the manifestation of the higher Will (attributes and qualities that form the characteristics and functions of material shapes). It’s represented by the Earth Element as a solid and tangible object that can be utilized for creating the experience of lying down. The Air and Earth Element are different densities of the same idea produced by a combination of the Fire and Water Element, where one is the emanation of the other.

The 4 Laws of Creation

       These 4 Worlds reveal and describe the 4primary Laws of Creation as interlaced planes of reality. They provide us with the laws used to create our material reality of sensory experience. The Soul isa part of every plane and is the “medium” through which the higher consciousness can be made manifest on the lower plane as an actual reality that’s used by the Soul to produce an “experience” of Itself. The Individual Soul,which is the medium of the Astral Plane, has the creative mental capacities for manifesting reality by ensouling cosmic ideas, shaping them “within it”, giving them life and producing them as a natural part of reality. Ideas of a universal and pure nature as an “ideal”, come “through the Soul” where they’re differentiated into a material manifestation of a particular type and kind.Ideas exist as a form of “seed” or germ that’s drawn into the Soul,impregnating it, where it develops it into a material form and births it as an outer reality that’s a combination of both a universal and personal idea. We conceive of ideas by incorporating them into our mental paradigm where they become an inherent part of our outer reality as our ability to “perceive them”. 

       The Higher Soul not only acts to produce itself as a sensory reality, but also creates the archetypal matrix of the entire lower plane of what we perceive as material reality. All reality is“formed by our perception of it”, and doesn’t exist as an independent entity that’s separate and apart from us. This fact is what forms the basis for all reality being considered an “illusion of the mind” that arises out of the fact that we lose our memory of “who we are” and how we’re actually the one creating our reality based on what ideas we choose to embody that serve as the basis for self-expression. As we draw ideas into our mind and transform them into a personalized reality, they become a natural part of our inner nature and form the basis for producing a corresponding outer reality that we then use as the means for creating ourselves in a unique manner.

The Lower Soul of Material Form

      Once the Soul creates itself and its world out of a universal form based on what archetypal ideas and qualities it acts to naturally absorb and use to form its internal nature, it then gets lost in the vividness and apparent solidity of its own creation and doesn’t realize how it’s being created or the fact that it’s the one creating it. The lower soul of the animal body only serves as an “empty shell” and passive medium for the higher Soul, and doesn’t have the ability to self-create by “drawing down”and acting as a vehicle for higher consciousness. It lacks the ability to self-create in a willful manner, and instead becomes subject to the will of others and society and only serves to absorb the ideas given to it by others as the means of “becoming”. By way of the same principles that govern the higher mind,we either draw on the ideas of a cosmic and truly original nature, or we allow others to plant ideas in our mind where we develop them into realities as our personal creation. When we shape ourselves according to the ideas of others or what we’ve been told to believe and accepted as true, we become a product of our own illusion and lend our will to actualize ourselves to be of the same nature as the ones serving to program us.

       The material plane exists as a unification of all the ideas we’ve acted to absorb, take into our mind and allow to take hold by imagining them as an experience, giving them life to by continuing to think about them where they become an inherent part of our mental paradigm and perceptual lens. Whatever we incorporate into our mental paradigm through our ability to reasonably comprehend it forms a belief that becomes a natural part of our outer reality. The material world is always being created by us through either an unconscious or conscious state. In the most basic sense all of what we experience as reality is formed through our perception of it.

       By gaining awareness of the laws governing the mind and Soul in its creation of itself as an entire reality, we can begin creating ourselves in a much more intentional and purposeful manner.We can withdraw from the unconscious process of becoming one with the group mind of already created ideas, and begin drawing on the higher, divine planes of original ideas and create ourselves in a deliberate and precise manner by becoming one with “the gods” of antiquity. Our true place as Higher Souls in the grand scheme of things is to become a sovereign Soul and exercise our power of choice and will by forming a desire to become one with the gods and work directly on our Self via masterful use of the Universal Laws that govern our own mind and all of creation through a single and continuous act.

The Eternal Nature of the Soul and the Illusion of Time and Space

In order to truly comprehend any idea, we have to start by defining the meaning of the terms being used to describe them. While we tend to think that words mean the same thing to everyone, this is never the case, so in order to form the model necessary to comprehend an idea in a new way, we have to first define the model. Whatever conceptual model we use to perceive something determines what we’re capable of seeing. While we have a tendency to think that “eternity” means living within time and space forever without dying, it actually indicates a higher plane that not only exists outside of the time-space dimension, but as what acts to compose and orchestrate the entire lower plane of time and space as the material world of natural phenomena. What we refer to as the “soul”, which is the aspect of the “self” that’s both of the spiritual and material plane as a combination, doesn’t exist in the most fundamental sense “as” an actual entity that’s located at a specific point within time, but rather as the “memory” that couples with the body that’s a part of the time-space plane, that it then “inhabits” as a means of creating experiences of itself. What we refer to as “soul essence” is memory as an organized field of information that forms the material world as the reconstitution of accumulated memory (karma). The soul uses the body as the means of experiencing itself “as someone specific” within the outer world of its own making that sets the stage for a certain type of drama to be played out. As it plays out a drama as a reality that provides it with a certain type of experience, it then absorbs the self-created experience as a summation when the body dies as memory of itself.

The Singularity The Soul exists in its natural domain on a higher plane that’s unified in nature as a singularity, and as it moves down into the lower plane of material reality, it divides and separates from itself to form the illusion of a self and other, an inner and outer, and a personal  and universal. The same accumulated and fully integrated memory as a singularity forms the basis for the entire material reality or both the body and it’s lifetime as a specific type of experience based on meaning. This follows the same principle as cellular mitosis where a single cell divides and regenerates itself multiple times in order to produce the cellular structure of a much larger entity as a unified whole. The same group of information reconfigured to produce all working aspects forms the same idea on multiple scales and magnitudes simultaneously. Though the body is comprised of what seems like trillions of independent cells, every cell is actually a reproduction of the “same cell”. The physical body and the environment of the body are all a part of the same idea as a smaller field within a greater field of the same nature (holographic principle). The Soul, which is of a universal nature (non-personal) on the higher plane of its natural domain, exists in multiple places and points in time simultaneously (superposition) on the lower plane of material existence which is fully created as a unified state. What we perceive as a past, present, and future, is actually all happening at the same time. While located “within” the dimension of time and space as a material being, we can’t see time as a whole event, and so we experience it instead as an unfolding that has a beginning, middle, and an end (the illusion of time). If we were viewing it from a higher dimension (that included the entire lower dimension as a singularity), we’d be able to see it in its entirety as a “single event” played out in a variety of ways from a multitude of perspectives. This idea is expressed through the saying “you can’t see the forest for the trees”. When you’re “in it” you can’t see the whole picture, but if you were on a mountain top you’d be able to see the entire forest as a single form and living entity.

The Nature of Reality, Energetic Entanglement, and Coherence The Soul exists as a single idea comprised of memory that’s organized (integrated and assimilated) into a pattern as a generalized theme. This is what forms the basis for karma which is a mindset as a certain type of character that when placed in a variety of personalities, conditions, and circumstances, still forms the same temperament, tendencies, and reconstructs their perception of reality out of the same thematic drama that tells a specific type of story. Our reality and experience of life is the way it is because of our mental paradigm that’s acting to create it. The same idea is played in the same way through multiple positions in time all taking place simultaneously. While we perceive different lives as being before and after, as a logical sequence of systematic development, they’re actually all happening at once, and any action as a change in one life, automatically produces the same change in all others because they’re “energetically entangled” (of the same nature as a single entity). The principle of Energetic Entanglement basically states that any two (or more) particles that are “born together” (cellular division and self-regeneration), then “separated” (an illusion of time and space), no matter how great the distance between them, continue to act as if they’re “one”. If you change the “state” (mental structure) of one, the other, which exists in polarity (complementary opposite) to it, changes in the same way at “exactly” the same time. They exist as both a particle and a wave (unified field) at the same time. They appear as being both located in space and as having no location in space, but existing instead as the “space itself”. The seemingly different personalities of the Soul exist in a coherent state as the same “internal nature”, type of person, and vibratory frequency. The “idea” of time and space as a perception of reality is an illusion in the most basic sense. The entire physical plane is created by the same idea (the collective unconscious) as a pattern (vibratory frequency) for reality. The Soul not only exists as the individual and the entire outer environment of the individual, but as multiple individuals within multiple outer environments that are all simultaneously located within the same space-time continuum that’s perceived as being “past, present, and future lives” of the same eternal soul. The same character and type of drama are played out simultaneously in multiple personalities and places, and are all connected at the subconscious level where they continue to act as one entity through a coherent state.

Soul Modification and the Nature of Choice and Free Will Our Higher Soul exists in what we can think of as a purified state on the Higher Plane of its own domain, where it hasn’t merged with a material body yet. As it moves into the lower material plane, where it has to divide from itself to produce the illusion of another, it “chooses a body” that’s comprised of compatible and corresponding “genetic memory” that will act to cooperatively produce the same type of experiences as the memory of the Soul. The genetic memory of the body has been programmed with the qualities, characteristics and experiences of its ancestors, which have expressed as “family dynamics” by all who share the same type of memory (subconscious programming) as a predisposition that forms natural tendencies. We don’t necessarily “choose our family and life conditions” as a conscious and deliberate process, but rather through a form of “natural selection” as being of the same “nature” as coherent memory and “life programming” as behavioral dynamics. As our Soul merges into and energetically blends with the personality of the body, where it “takes on” (inherits and acquires) the genetic memory of the family bloodline, and merges it’s accumulated memory with that of the body’s ancestors. The DNA of the body not only contains the memory for producing the physical characteristics that give the body it’s appearance, general makeup, and physical abilities, but also all the “high impacting experiences and trauma’s” of the parents, who inherited them from their parents, who inherited them from their parents, and so on down the line for many generations. These unconscious memories as our genetic predisposition forms the basis for what we call our “lower soul”, which is of an “animal nature” and forms the basis for our personality and formative conditioning, all of which are created out of what is primarily an unconscious state. This idea is expressed in the saying “the sins of the Father are passed down to the sons for seven generations”.

       This genetic memory that we acquire from our body is what gives us our emotional tendencies, animalistic passions and desires, unconscious compulsions, and forms our instinctual nature. Because we share the same memory and predisposition with our immediate family who expresses them through family dynamics, we’re “conditioned” with the same dynamics as behavioral patterns that are the basic model set into place for our karma. The Higher Soul resonates with the memory of the body because it’s ideal for producing and acting out the same type of experiences as the means of “creating itself”. As the Soul mixes with the emotions and instinctual nature of the body, its “contaminated” and altered from its original state, and requires the use of its creative power of choice and will in order to overcome and mentally direct the passions of the body. As the Soul enters into the dense (unconscious) matter of the body, and acquires an emotional nature that’s designed to produce activity without a thought process or conscious decision made out of a sense of “self-awareness” and objective thinking, it gets caught up in the “illusions” created out of the emotions which take control of all thinking and imagining, and it can get lost, forgetting almost entirely who and what it actually is. The illusions created out of the unconscious state of the personality set into play the challenges and obstacles the Soul must overcome in regaining its authority over itself by remembering who it really is and the power it possesses to be self-determined. The Soul forgets its origins and true identity and engages fully in the illusion of its own creation as a way of self-creating within the drama of its own making.

Observing the Nature of the Soul outside of Time I became aware of the true nature of the soul and time not through study and developing a hypothesis based on a new combination of ideas, or by evolving currently held ideas, but through direct experience that came by engaging in a dynamic series of hypnotic past life regression (PLR), and conducting past life regression sessions with others (I’m a hypnotherapist). What I found was a bit mind-boggling at first, as it defied everything I had been taught up to that point and made no sense to me at the time, and so it took me a while to understand what they were showing me. The experiments I formed out of them as a way of exploring the implications produced even more startling evidence that everything I had been taught about the nature of our soul and reality was based on a false premise, and therefore was false also. These ideas will probably never be fully accepted by conventional science because it requires merging natural phenomena with invisible forces and fields that are acting not only to organize and form them, but animate them as a dynamic drama taking place in multiple positions within a continuum at the same time. Yet Quantum Physics, which is based on observation of phenomenon rather than mathematical theory, beliefs, and preexisting opinions, is already making the same discoveries and drawing very similar conclusions. The biggest difference between my findings and theirs is that they’re using a scientific model of particles and wave-forms, and I’m using a spiritual model of the soul and the nature of reality as eternity.

          All true knowledge only comes as awareness attained through the “experience” of something. Theory as a hypothesis or belief of some kind only provides the basis for applying in an experimental manner to produce the results the theory predicts and thereby “proving it” as being true and real. But often when we openly experiment with an idea without a firm set of beliefs about it, which will only act to shape and limit our experience, often what we encounter instead contradicts everything we’ve been taught up to that point and reveals instead a magical alternative that moves us instantly to a whole new level of understanding. While this new understanding can seem surreal at first, it also brings many conflicting ideas together in a way that suddenly makes perfect sense and seems to answer every question we ever wondered about that seemed like a loop-hole in truly grasping the overall truth. When this happens, a kind of “quickening” takes place as a synchronization of multiple ideas and how they’re interrelated to form a coherent and cohesive whole on a higher plane of understanding. We move from being in the forest and unable to see because of the trees, to the mountain top where we can see the entire forest as a dynamic ecological system. So everything I’m going to talk about here came as a direct experience that brought new and deeper realizations into the true nature of the soul, reality, and what we experience as the space-time continuum.

Exploring Multiple Lives The whole basis of PLR is the realization that our soul exists in many different bodies and personalities, located in many different places and points in time as the history of the collective unconscious of humanity. Through the actual experience of being someone else in a different place and time, I began developing an awareness of what “part of me as my conscious awareness” was what we call our “higher soul” that’s “eternal” in nature. I realized that this term means “non-personal”, and while it’s “in the body as the body”, it’s not “of the body”. It permeates, inhabits, and transcends the body all at the same time. It’s the objective witness that’s watching the life experiences from a removed position, involved in the meaning of the drama being played out as a series of realizations about its own nature in relation to that of humanity, yet somewhat disconnected from the emotions and personality, and the thoughts taking place in a moment-by-moment manner. The Higher Soul is always involved in the “bigger picture playing out” as the “meaning” of the moment-by-moment experiences. It’s always aware of and involved in the summation of meaning as a story-line that’s being viewed from outside and at a distance. We view it as if we’re in the audience watching it like a movie, and simultaneously within the body forming a realization about the “self” as it’s playing a role within an unfolding drama. It’s detached from the personality of the body and only inside the body looking out, using the body as the means of telling a story and experiencing itself by way of that story. It feels a lot like an actor playing a convincing role in a story by embodying the qualities and characteristics that are ideal for telling that type of story, while at the same time, realizing their only acting.

       I then realized that the theme as a pattern or kind of drama being played out was the same as the one being played out in my current life in a different way. And that the person or people I was acting it out with were the same souls that were simply in a different body just as I was. We formed a similar relationship and played various roles in the same dynamic as a life theme. We were playing out the same idea as a life pattern within different bodies in a different set of conditions and circumstances, and at different points in time as what we could call shared karma or soul memory. It revealed to me in very objective terms the pattern I was acting out in my current life. Because I was viewing the same idea from a detached state, I was able to see it in a different light and immediately recognized it as the same pattern that was governing this life. Naturally the implications for healing became immediately obvious, and everything in my life that I was unsure of and always wondering about and asking for guidance on became crystal clear. I not only knew why I was doing what I was doing and what the lesson was, but what I needed to do in order to remedy it. I gained extreme clarity around what it means to redeem myself from the errors committed in the past that were born out of unknowingly participating in an illusion as a deception that replaced what I knew to be true and right. At the same time I recognized several things that I (we) was doing in what seemed like a joking or casual manner in my relationships that were actually symbolic ideas buried deep in my (our) subconscious mind as a form of soul awareness and recognition of past events. For example, I used to give my partner a hand full of herbs at night before bed to help him sleep, and he would make jokes about me “poisoning him”, and I would joke in return about it not working very well and that maybe I should up the dose. It turned out that he had ruthlessly poisoned me in a past life where we were best friends. In a past life you can recognize the soul of the other people by looking in their eyes, regardless of what their body looks like. This is why we often feel an instant connection with someone the minute we make eye contact with them. It’s the primary means of soul recognition. All attraction in the most basic sense of the idea comes from connecting with other souls that we share karma with as a dynamic that we’re ideal for acting out together.

Rewriting our own History But the truly amazing discovery came when I used the information obtained from a past life to make the changes in perception and behaviors in my current life that transformed the nature of the pattern being acted out, and set a new one into play as a different series of choices that produced a different kind of reality and experience. Once I made the corrections in the present, and then revisited that same past life where that pattern was acted out in full, the drama as my life story in that life had changed in the same way. I literally rewrote my own past history in the present, by acting to change the idea that was being played out in both lives. I naturally continued to experiment with this idea myself through other life patterns, and drew consistent conclusions each time. So I decided to experiment in the same fashion with others, where it proved to be true for them also. What seemed like a past and present was actually being conducted at the same time from different points and perspectives “in time”. I actually existed as both people at the same time. The only difference was my awareness of each personality that I was “alive in”. I was able to see what seemed like a previous life and the same pattern being acted out in its wholeness or completion and the outcome that would result. I was able to comprehend the same type of life as a beginning and end, and it allowed me to make new choices within my current life as a result. This shows us that there’s truly no “time but the present”, and it’s never too late to make changes. That our soul isn’t doomed by mistakes, but only our failure to actively correct our mistakes. We can acquire the means for correcting our own mistakes as faulty judgment by being able to see the consequences of our decisions played out to a natural conclusion. By being able to “witness the consequences of our own actions” as a life experience, we can make new decisions in our current life that will act to redeem our soul from past errors. As we correct the same pattern and tendency being played out in our current life, it’s as if those errors are erased from our history altogether.

Super positioning of the Multidimensional Nature of the Soul I then started noticing that the soul appeared to be living multiple existences simultaneously, and some “lifetimes” were taking place within the same time periods, and often even overlapped each other. The Higher Soul not only exists within a unified reality of past and present, but also in multiple bodies and personalities simultaneously. While our “conscious awareness” is based on our outer awareness of a specific location within time, when we delve into our subconscious mind and Soul memory, which is our inner awareness and the part of our mind we share with all of Nature as our “collective unconscious”, we can tap into the reality of multiple existences simultaneously, and some that often overlap each other by several years. The Soul isn’t the consciousness of a single entity, but that which animates and gives life to multiple entities at the same time that are all playing out the same type of memory as a life theme. Any changes that we make in the “shared pattern” that acts as a metaphor, influences and produces a shift in consciousness across all lifetimes and personalities simultaneously. When this happens, new ideas as realizations come to us seemingly “out of nowhere” as a form of realization, inspiration, and guidance. As we do the work to heal ourselves within our present awareness, we simultaneously heal all of ourselves throughout the space-time continuum. In this way the soul can redeem itself at any point in time where it created in error out of an illusion born out of an emotional state, and return itself to a purified state where all “memory” is transformed simultaneously throughout the unified field or greater mind of the Soul. It’s never too late to do our healing work of personal transformation. Time only exists as the present moment. All else is an illusion created in the mind.

The Future already Exists in the Present Moment Another transforming realization came when I was exploring the idea of the fact that we can transform ourselves by developing new qualities and traits in ourselves through modeling someone else who possesses the traits we want to develop. This plays off of the idea that we can only “do and become” what we can first imagine. Our creative ability to become something more or different from the character established through our formative conditioning only comes through our ability to “decide to change”, and in what way we’re going to change, then model that quality and way of being as a state of mind and behavior until it becomes natural. This is the method used for tapping into our latent potential and using it to create ourselves in new ways. Our subconscious, which is what forms our personality and all of our natural behaviors as well as our outer reality as a perception, works to construct reality out of memory. Our Soul is comprised of memory that forms a cohesive model (mental paradigm) used for constructing and perceiving reality and our “self within that reality”. In order to create something new that’s outside of our habitual memory pattern as a way of being, we have to embody it and form it in our imagination as an actual experience of ourselves that mimics an actual memory. This “virtual memory” produced in the “creative imagination” serves as a creative directive or command for the subconscious to use as a pattern for creating both an inner and outer reality of the same nature. I kept “seeing myself” as a teacher and public speaker that was very confident and knowledgeable, and I had developed a very distinct “style” that seemed to come naturally. As an artist I know that when we mentor another artist whose work we really like, and try to paint in the same way they do, it allows a form of pathway for our own style to emerge and become apparent. We always have to create a pathway as practice for manifesting a reality as a thematic idea. Yet I had never mentored another teacher, and couldn’t figure out where I was getting or producing this distinct vision I had of myself. Then one day while meditating on the idea, I realized I was mentoring myself in the “future”. That the image I constantly saw of myself that acted as a form of guidance and the purpose and dream from my life was actually a snapshot produced by a future memory.

       I then realized that just as we have subconscious memories of our past life that come as mental impressions and a deep feeling of connection to an idea, one that we naturally see ourselves in and doing, we also have “memories” of the future that play out in our mind as a form of guidance. What we perceive as our future self has already been created and established before we were born and comes as a dream for our life that guides us through a pathway of constant obstacles and challenges, that serve to shape and transform us along the way. Who we “become” exists in us as our natural dream for our life that’s always acting to compel and drive us at the subconscious level to create it. This subconscious memory that we’re programmed with from birth gives us the illusion of having choice and free will within the body and personality, which actually comes as a preset memory that’s programmed into us. This memory of ourselves as a creative design for our life forms all of our predispositions, temperament, tendencies, talents, gifts, and special abilities, as well as the “karmic events” of our life and how we respond to them as the means of growing and evolving ourselves. Our Higher Self as our true Soul is the creator and choreographer of the entire lower material plane, where it simultaneously exists apart from it, while entering into it as the mind (spirit) that expresses through the body. It uses the body as the means of experiencing itself through its own creation as a certain type of story. We are the author of our own story, the producer and director and the main star of our own movie, and the co-star of an even greater story of the same nature all being played out simultaneously within the same outer reality as a group theme.

The Eternal Nature of the Soul within the Space-Time Continuum The Soul doesn’t necessarily live forever within the dimension of space and time, where it moves systematically in a linear fashion from one body to the next, absorbing and integrating the life memory attained from that body and point in time, but exists outside of time as the one creating reality as a form of simulation. It exists on a higher plane and uses multiple bodies simultaneously as “empty shells” (it’s the soul that gives life to the body) that it enters into through sympathetic induction while in its universal and unified state as multiple selves all living out the same metaphorical story as a life theme and type of drama. It exists at multiple points in time (unified field as a continuum) and history as a form of dynamic simulation that are all taking place at the “same time”. Each life lived from different perspectives has the ability to form new realizations and make changes based on those realizations that effect all lives in the same way simultaneously. What we perceive as the past is really a part of the present moment happening on a parallel plane, and only has the “appearance” of being the past and future, when in essence, it’s the “same consciousness” that exists everywhere within the lower plane at the same time. Time travel as we know it is a unilateral movement within the same plane as multiple dimensions based on the soul’s “timeline” as its memory of itself. While memory appears to be an accumulation of separate events, it’s actually a unified idea as a singularity that acts as a theme that can be played out in a similar fashion within an infinite number of conditions and circumstances to produce the same “type of experience and outcome“. The same pattern as a metaphorical theme is being played out at different locations simultaneously within a unified field that’s comprised of the same information. The soul “divides from itself” and separates into the illusion of a “self and another” in order to enter a physical body that’s located within a greater field of time and space as the means of experiencing and creating itself by way of working on its own memory to produce new memories that serve to tell a different type of story. Each one of these “lives” and “selves” are of the same entity as consciousness that’s comprised of organized information as “Soul memory” that forms a vibratory frequency as its “nature”, and appears to exist in several places at once, while still acting as a single entity. Change the state of one, and all the others change in the exact same manner instantaneously, rewriting time as the Soul’s history within the space-time continuum.

The Nature of Light All light exists simultaneously as a wave (unified field of information) and particle. A particle doesn’t form out of the wave as a seemingly solid and fixed form unless it’s being “observed” by the mind. It exists in a potential state of infinite possibilities (neutral and passive) until it enters into relationship with the paradigm of the individual mind, which acts on it to shape and determine it as a match to the beliefs, expectations, preferences, and memories of the person observing it. The Soul as the mind exists as both the field and the particles within the field simultaneously. All particles that are born together out of a single particle or unified system, or that become entangled through intimate contact (think of mitosis as cellular regeneration of a single cell to form trillions that produce a greater whole as a single entity), when separated, no matter how great the distance (distance is a property of time and space), continue to exist and act as if they’re one. A particle has both a solid and virtual existence at the same time, and can exist in two or more locations at the same time. What we perceive with our senses to be a solid, material object is actually comprised of light (photons) as coagulated essence in empty (invisible) space. An atom exists in its fundamental state as a “cloud-like formation of essence”, and doesn’t form into an organized system as a fixed pattern until it’s observed. It only forms into an organized and somewhat stable system when interacted with and influenced by consciousness that’s of a certain nature. It then forms an “appearance” that matches the belief and expectation of the mind that’s acting to influence it by directing how it organizes.

        The mind of the Soul exists as an organized field of information as memory. This field of accumulated memory exists as a mental paradigm that’s a single entity and acts to shape matter into the same pattern as an organized structure that “matches” it as a theme. What we experience as both the inner and outer reality is a mental construct produced by the mind as a thematic pattern played out on different scales at the same point in time simultaneously. What appear to be different lives that exist at different points in time are all produced by the same organized field of information as the souls consciousness played out using different personalities as unique combinations of qualities and abilities that utilize different cultural settings as the stage for producing the same type of experiences in new and unique ways. By playing out the same story in different ways forming unique perspectives each time, allows new realizations as deeper forms of self-awareness. If you change the “shared memory” by making new decisions in one life that produces a new “type of experience” as an alteration to the story being lived, that same change takes place in all lives as a “paradigm shift”. Time itself is comprised of a dynamic series of fractal patterns as the organizing mechanism and theme for what seems like multiple lives all being lived at the same time. By changing our “inner nature” through the integration of new information as a different kind of experience in one life, we change all lives as the Soul’s timeline and history. All “time travel” is based on a “timeline” as a unified field of memory, which is what’s used to “construct reality”. When we regress backward or forward to what seem like a different point in time within the “field of the mind”, it’s all based on moving to different locations within the same unified field as a certain type of memory.

The Nature of the Soul – The Kabbalah Tree of Life and the Process of Self-Creation

The Kabbalah Tree of Life provides us with a symbolic diagram for understanding the true nature of our soul and how we can consciously create ourselves through the understanding and utilization of universal laws. It’s created as a hierarchical structure of “spheres of consciousness” as “states of mind” (Monads) that move an idea in a purely potential state into an actual expression of reality by steady imposing limitations of various sorts on it as it descends from higher to lower planes that are all a dynamic and cohesive part of the same coherent reality. The human soul is represented by the central sphere (Tiphareth) that’s located on the central pillar of the Tree, and acts as the “medium” between the higher world of Archetypes as an idea in its potential (unformed) state, and the lower world of active expression where the archetype manifests as a specific entity within a reality of the same nature and with the same likeness.

Like all metaphorical ideas that are symbolic in nature and require interpretation in order to be understood, there are as many ways to interpret the Tree of Life as there are people interpreting it. And while general ideas apply as a form of overall theme that governs the nature of the interpretation itself as an intuitive form of reasoning based on the organized structure itself, the process of interpretation comes by way of a constant form of limitation that’s placed on a universal idea as adaptation to the individuals model of the world, level of esoteric knowledge, personality and identity, maturity level, and the conditions and circumstances of their life that they conform it to as a way of forming an internal representation of it as a working reality. As an idea in its potential state is brought down the planes from a universal state to a personalized expression, it’s modified by the individual mind into a new form.

All spiritual development as a higher form of consciousness (which means it’s “creative” in nature), comes through direct experience of an idea as first formed in the mind’s eye as a working concept by the individual as a form of “embodying it”, which provides the subconscious mind of the body with the means for using it to express and create as an outer reality. Higher consciousness always comes through a form of self-creating as an “individual”, whereas lower consciousness comes as a lack of individuality where spiritual doctrine is interpreted for us by another, and we simply “accept it” as gospel, so to speak, and live our life out of dogma that strips us of our true ability to create ourselves in a unique way. Our higher capacity of the mind and soul is our “creative ability” to form ourselves out of our thoughts in a unique fashion through a process of adaptation and modification. The interpretation I’m about to give is just one of many possibilities, and is not meant to take literally, but rather as the means of initiating a natural process of intuitive unfolding in your own mind. Words can never truly describe or express the nature of the divine, which can only be known through the direct (inner) experience of them, and are only approximations of an idea.

The overall Structure as a Creative Process

The first thing we want to notice is the basic structure of the Tree and how it’s laid out in terms of representing different aspects of the same principles at different “levels of creation”. The Spheres of the Tree are positioned on three pillars where the central pillar is longer and ascends to a higher level and to the lowest level as a singular or equilibrated form. The central pillar is the pillar of equilibrium, and the two side pillars represent the masculine and feminine aspect, which when brought into harmony form a functional third. All spheres, whether single or double, are positioned at different levels in a descending and ascending orientation, and represent different planes as the creative process for forming a cohesive reality as the individual expression of a universal idea. The overall Tree is formed by a series of Triads as the “One” that divides itself into complementary opposites as it descends, then brings those opposites into balance as a functional third that expresses as a combination within the lower plane as a process of solidification of an idea through various levels of transformation that alter and modify it into a new and unique form.

Universal Laws for Creating Material Reality

The most basic element in understanding universal laws and how they work to create reality comes in realizing that structure, as how information is organized into an idea as a pattern, always determines how something functions and behaves, and is what provides the means for creating a material manifestation of some kind. How a system is organized into an animated pattern gives us a kind of “formula” as a creative process that we can use for bringing an idea into expression as the physical reality of the idea. All ideas can only come into physical manifestation “through us”. They require a “mental channel” (sphere of consciousness) as a vehicle in order to express as a physical reality. The soul acts as the “medium” for calling down an idea (resonating and acting to absorb it) into the mind as a thought and imaginary idea that it then uses as a form of memory for expressing to create an experience of itself as a reality.

        The hierarchical structure of the Tree not only moves through what we can think of as seven planes of existence (which correspond to the 7 chakras of the subtle body), but also Four Worlds, which correspond to the Sacred Name of God, represented by the 4 letters of God’s name as IHVH. Each World represents a different operation in the formation and manifestation of an archetypal idea. The 4 Worlds start at the top of the Tree as the single sphere that represents the Archetypal World of ideas in their unformed (potential) state, which then undergoes a synchronized process of unfolding that ultimately acts to birth all the other spheres as its formation. It divides into polar aspects of Itself on the lower plane of Creation, as attributes and qualities necessary to form distinct characteristics, forming what’s called the “Supernal” or primary Triad that gives birth to the rest of the Triads on the Tree as a reflection and projection of itself.

Spheres 4 through 9, which form the four lower planes, is the Formative World, also known in Esoteric Sciences as the Astral-Etheric plane, where an archetypal idea is shaped by the mind of the individual soul into an actual physical reality as a unique variation of a universal idea. As it descends through various stages of formation, it forms the etheric body as the “energetic double” that provides the blueprint for producing as a physical entity and reality. The lowest sphere that’s singular in nature forms the World of Action or Manifestation as not only the physical body, but the entire outer reality of the physical body which is formed out of the same type of idea on a larger scale within the same plane.

The Tree of Life forms a hierarchical structure that moves a universal idea down into the personal realm of the soul (Astral Plane), which acts as a “medium” between the higher (pure spirit) and lower (material) planes, where it’s then used as the means for the individual soul to create itself by creating an experience of reality. The human soul, which is multidimensional in nature, uses various universal archetypes as the means of producing a “new and unique archetype” as a novel combination of universal qualities and characteristics. It takes (acts to absorb) a universal archetype as an idea of itself, and through a dynamic process of adaptation through various planes and degrees of existence, consistently modifies it into a new form of the same idea that’s bestowed with a new combination of qualities that produce unique characteristics, producing an “imaginary (inner) reality” of itself that becomes the basis for experiencing as an actual material reality. The soul “pulls an idea down” (resonates with) from the upper planes to use as the means for self-expression within the lower planes in order to create an experience of itself that it then transforms into a memory as the basis for creating itself. The soul forms itself out of various forms of integrated and assimilated memory from a unique variety of experiences that are all self-produced.

Mirroring and Reflecting

If you study the nature and structure of the Tree, you realize that as it moves in a descending manner from the upper most regions to the lower regions, it does so through a dynamic series of reflecting itself as a mirror image onto the lower plane, forming a series of Triads as energetic imprints. A mirror image is a direct reflection that’s of an opposite or polar nature to the original one that’s casting it. As we look in the mirror, we’re always seeing a reverse image of ourselves, where what appears as our right side is in reality our left side, and vice versa. We’re always seeing ourselves backwards from how everyone else sees us, and so we’re never able to “see ourselves” as we truly exist in the purely material sense.

This reveals the fact that the micro and macro are of the same nature as complementary opposites of each other on both the upper and lower planes. This same principle holds true in a linear fashion on the same plane as the inner and outer reality of the material world being of a complementary nature to each other. The same pattern forms both the upper and lower world of the soul and its material manifestation on the lower planes as the inner reality and outer experience of the same nature or idea. All are produced as a reflection and projection of the “self” on different levels and planes of existence simultaneously. This idea is represented in Sacred Geometry by the Monad (sphere of consciousness), symbolized as a dot within a sphere, where the outer reality is formed as an extension or projection of the central (inner) consciousness producing it as a perception of it. This is also symbolically represented by the “compass and square” as a 90 degree angle (L shape) that’s used by the mind in constructing the material world.

In quantum physics this is observed as the nature of light (the essence of matter as photons), which exists simultaneously as both a particle and a wave, and where two particles that are “born together” (of the same nature as a replication), that form the “appearance” of a single particle in two locations (Dyad), when separated at what seems like great distances, still continue to operate as if they’re “one”. They exist as polar opposites of each other located within the same wave-form of the material dimension as both an individual and the greater reality of that individual (Monad). Where “time and space” of the material plane exists as a “memory” created and maintained within the mind of the soul. Where an idea is absorbed and brought to life internally that forms the perceptual lens for perceiving as an outer reality of the same idea as a life theme.

Paradox and the Nature of Polarity

At the top of the Tree, a single sphere exists that acts to divide and separate from Itself as it descends into the next lower plane, forming itself as polar opposites that are complementary in nature (they act to stimulate each other into existence as an active memory).  This forms both the masculine and feminine aspects of the same idea or archetype as the spirit within a physical form. This same principle forms the basis for all of life as cellular regeneration, where the same cell forms a replication of itself as the means for self-regeneration by “dividing”, then systematically “doubling”. A single cell acts to produce all of the cells that eventually form a much greater “unified whole” as a material body that’s of a single nature. This whole material body, which appears as trillions of individual cells that have all differentiated and specialized to form all the unique and diverse working parts needed to produce a greater whole as a functioning organism, are actually the offspring of a single cell and pattern of organized- information, that together operate as a single entity, represented by the mental sphere on the central pillar of equilibrium.

Once the Supernal (Trinity) is formed in the upper plane of the Creative World as an Archetypal idea imbued with specific attributes and qualities as a “state of mind”, it “reflects itself” down into the next lower plane of Formation in a unified state on the masculine pillar of activity. As it moves from a higher plane to the next lower, it forms a zigzag movement similar to a lightning bolt that moves it from a combined state of equilibrium into an active state that reshapes, transforms, and evolves it into a new form that then reproduces on the next plane in an equalized state of harmony. As memory (archetype) is activated by directed attention as the stimulating force of consciousness, it’s drawn down into the personalized plane of the individual soul (plane of Astral Light) where it’s shaped in the mind’s eye into an actual possibility for creating as a reality. This is the sphere of Chesed, as the fourth sphere on the masculine pillar, that’s a combination of the previous three that act to birth it, that forms the first mental operation on the lower plane of Formation, as a memory formed into a possible reality in the “imagination” of the individual soul.

         It’s then shaped in the imagination as a form of universal memory that’s been specialized into a new and diverse form where it forms the inner constitution (inner nature) and all activity (outer expression) of the individual soul as a natural process of self-creation. The memory turned into an inner reality of a specialized nature, is then projected within the same plane (horizontally) as the masculine, outer aspect of the same reality. This is the mental operation as a projection of the “self” on the same plane (Sephirah (sphere) of Geburah) as the soul’s inner constitution also forming the basis for the outer reality constructed out of the same memory. The feminine of the higher plane, which is a combination as a unification of the masculine aspects, forms the masculine aspect of the lower plane as an “active state”. The imagination, which is generally considered a feminine aspect as an operation of the subconscious mind, is the active component in the lower planes of manifestation, and the masculine aspect as the perception of the outer world, normally attributed to the self-conscious mind of activity, is the passive component within the lower planes. The masculine and feminine aspects exist in polarity between the upper and lower planes, and form a fundamental paradox that’s always at play within the material world of formation.

Together, as a unique formation of archetypal memory, it returns to a unified state as it moves down into the next level (center of the Formative World of the Astral plane), and forms the basis for the “human soul” (Tiphareth) as a functional whole, which then divides from itself to form the subconscious mind of the subtle body on the lower plane (Netzach), which then separates from itself again to form the self-conscious mind (Hod) of the same plane. The Soul creates the entire lower astral realm through the faculty of the subconscious, which creates out of memory to produce both the inner and outer world of manifestation as a mental construct of itself on different scales. The subconscious then acts to birth the self-conscious aspect of the same mind as the ability to witness and experience itself through the observation of the external world produced by the projection of the internal world. Together, the subconscious and self-conscious produce a “unified whole” as the etheric body of Yesod, which acts as a blueprint for producing as a physical manifestation of both the body and its entire outer reality, all of which are all formed out of the same memory being played out on different scales simultaneously as a unified whole.

Structure and Function as the Nature of Karma

The Tree is structured out of three vertical pillars (threefold nature of the mind, soul, and reality) that sit side-by-side that forms movement as a division and unification that form a self-perpetuating and self-sustaining system of self-regeneration. The pillars form the basis for polarity as both the feminine and masculine aspects of the same plane, formed out of or returned to an equilibrated state as the basis for the next plane that issues forth from them in a synchronistic and automatic fashion as a process of spirit “becoming” material form. The masculine aspect forms the “seed” as the archetypal idea that impregnates the feminine aspect as the memory used to organize light-essence into an equivalent material form as universal memory that acts as the basis for producing the “self” as the soul and the outer reality of the soul as the experience of itself in-form. The masculine pole represents the active, outer or greater reality as a pattern that is drawn into and acts to impregnate the feminine aspect that creates it as a material form that serves as the basis for producing a virtual or universal memory.

The single sphere of consciousness at the top that initiates the process is a universal archetype (comprised of a combination of 12 aspects to form a single idea) that’s imbued with all the attributes, qualities, characteristics, and functional tendencies that form the basis of reality as the natural “story” it tells as a form of personal mythology of the soul inhabiting it. The archetype contains in its latent and potential state all the information and self-organizing forces necessary to produce a coherent and cohesive reality as the enactment of soul memory that forms “karma” as the basis for reality as the soul’s life experience through the story it naturally acts to tell through its personality played out within the conditions and circumstances of its current life situation.

The upper Triad is reflected downward into the lower plane of Astral-Light in its dual nature, which then serves to form an even lower region within the same plane as the unification of its polar aspects. This unified field as a sphere of consciousness within the lower regions of the astral field forms what we commonly think of as our “Higher Self” that’s active as intuition within the material plane, and is what serves to organize and orchestrate the entire lower plane of material reality as the basis for the souls karma (creating reality out of memory). This configuration forms what looks like an upside down triangle or Triad oriented in a downward motion. Out of this sphere emerge dual aspects into an even lower region of the same plane as the subconscious mind that will form and inhabit the material body, and give birth to the self-conscious mind as the masculine aspect of the same nature. Together, these two aspects of the mind and soul produce a unified whole as the “etheric body” that acts as the holographic template for structuring and animating the physical body of the material realm, and is reflected downward into the lower plane as a reflection of its unified state as a single sphere of consciousness.

The Fall of the Archangels to form Humanity

On the central pillar of equilibrium there are five spheres as levels of consciousness, four of which are visible as actual laws, and one invisible as the “void” or quantum leap from a higher realm of existence to a much lower realm of material manifestation. The three visible spheres (Kether, Tiphareth, and Yesod) that exist within the unmanifest, purely mental realms of organized energy as equilibrated states, are commonly referred to as the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost of the Trinity, and the manifestation of the Supernal represented by the Tetrad as the Holy name of God, comprised of four letters that are really three letters where one is repeated (IHVH).

The invisible sphere (forming the 11th sphere), which exists in-between the highest Triad and it’s reflection into the Lower regions of the Astral plane, called “Daath” (death), is symbolic of the “fall of the angels” (Archetypes as gods) to form mankind. It’s the invisible sphere of “knowledge” which only comes through “experience”. It’s the movement of the higher principles into the lower vibration of the astral plane of form, where an idea that’s “pure in nature” combines with an element of a lower plane, becoming contaminated and corrupted from its original form in order to produce a personalized version of the same idea as a unique variation.

What we think of as the Human Soul, represented by the central sphere of Tiphareth, or the “Son” of the Trinity, acts as a medium that vibrates at a frequency that’s in-between the higher and lower planes, and therefore acts as a “medium” necessary to access and “draw down” the higher consciousness of the upper plane while serving as the means for forming a personalized version by becoming the vehicle for expressing it within the lower plane of manifestation as the means of “self-creating”. The higher plane of the Supernal (upper most triad), and the lower plane of material manifestation vibrate at such different frequencies that they can’t resonate with each other, and so require a medium as a middle ground that vibrates at the lower region of the higher plane and the higher region of the lower plane so it can act as the channel or vehicle for archetypal principles to manifest as material forms of varying degrees and natures. And likewise act as the means for the memory obtained from personal manifestations to be returned to a universal state as the archetypal make-up of the soul. In the name of God represented by the Tetrad (different names of God indicate different operations), the H (which bridges together two I’s), is the second (Son as the human Soul) and the last (actual manifestation) letter of the name as the manifestation of the soul’s consciousness. All physical manifestation is of the human soul as “God made manifest”. The “I Am” as an actual entity and experience of the “Self” as an aspect of God.

Intuition, the 3rd Eye, and the Pineal Gland – How we Receive Communication from Higher Planes of Existence

What we refer to as intuition comes to us in two basic ways and from two different planes. The most basic way comes from the material plane as a form of telepathic, horizontal transmission through the heart center that we experience as feelings and emotions that produce a realization of some kind as a form of “knowing” (that doesn’t come from cognition of some form), and as a vertical transmission of information from a higher plane through the third-eye, which is the subtle organ that corresponds to the Pineal Gland seated in the center of the brain. Transmission from a higher source comes as an inner voice (commanded by a higher authority) that’s translated into an imagined reality as a thought-form or mental impression, that’s always “original” in nature. Meaning it’s not self-generated out of an existing memory of some sort, but comes as a deeper realization into things that we didn’t know or wasn’t aware of before. Information as ideas from a higher plane comes to us from “outside of” our mental paradigm as a form of inspiration or sudden realization. Intuition of the material plane is the same universal force that drives instinct, and is what gives animals their “6th sense” (6 associated to the 6th chakra of the 3rd- eye) and is what allows them to be aware of things that are invisible to the physical senses, and can only be “sensed” as an inner feeling that stimulates emotions, which produce automatic and natural behaviors without a thought process. Whereas intuition from a higher plane comes as a form of thought and mental impression that plants an idea in the imagination where it’s transformed into a living reality and provides us with new insights and means for inventing and creating material reality in a new and original way. You can easily recognize this form of intuition because it’s not an idea that you produced out of existing memories, or as a variation of something you already knew, but rather as showing you something that you weren’t aware of or able to see from your normal perspective. It comes as ideas that exist just outside of your mental paradigm that serve to expand and increase your awareness around an idea.

       Intuition from a higher source comes as an idea that enters your mind spontaneously (while in a receptive state), usually in response to a desire, question, or intention of some kind, and like a seed that’s planted in fertile ground, it begins growing as a harmonious and synchronistic unfolding that “reveals itself” to you while you simply observe it from a passive state. It forms a natural chain-of-association that connects a series of ideas by how they relate to each other. It forms mental impressions that reveal the true significance of things at a deeper level, that even when you can’t connect them to other ideas in your life in a logical and direct manner, you know there’s a reason they’re being shown to you. As you go through your day, it keeps popping into your mind by how it relates to other ordinary ideas that you encounter throughout the day. Once it enters your mind as an imaginary experience, it doesn’t go away and only continues to grow and evolve, showing you deeper and deeper aspects of its significance, and you start noticing how it’s related or acting to guide you in other areas of your life. Sometimes it comes as distinct guidance, and at other times as simply showing you things that increase your self-awareness so you can make new decisions as a form of self-guidance. It’s always teaching you a new way perceiving that brings a whole new reality into play that has a kind of “magical quality” to it. It acts like a secret idea that’s been hidden within the ordinary reality around you that you never saw before. Yet once you’re able to “see it”, you immediately notice it in any situation in which it occurs or relates to. These ideas as mental impressions continue to multiply and grow because you start getting notions about things, or you start noticing other ideas that are related to it that stand out or spontaneously come to mind. All transmissions come by way of an “accumulative effect” that begins growing an idea as a series of realizations that develops it through a continuous process of adaptation and modification in deeper and more significant ways. Certain ideas are “magnetic” in nature (alive) and when they come into your mind have an “attractive field” (electromagnetic field) that draws you deeper and deeper into them, while connecting you to the same idea in your environment. This is similar to the choreographer who carefully orchestrates how the bigger story (pattern) of your life unfolds and comes into being out of nowhere. The creative process for how an idea becomes the basis for experiencing reality.

Example: Several years back I became imprinted with the number “44”, which began through a simple conversation with a friend in regards to the significance of numbers that stand out to us in our environment. Once I was imprinted with the idea of 44 and 8, it began showing up in every area of my life where numbers were involved. While hiking one day, it began raining and I sought shelter under a rock outcropping while gazing at a beautiful mountain scene, smelling the fragrant air and the intoxicating energy that I was submerged in, a powerful feeling came over me and I saw myself in a mountain cabin, serene and peaceful, dedicating my time to writing, painting, and transforming my life situation. This came as a deep feeling of sensing myself fully within the experience of it, and I realized it was exactly what I really wanted to do, though I had no idea how I was going to do it, because the means wasn’t apparent at that time. But from that moment on it became a form of goal as an intention for creating that I continued to imagine as an experience. I was getting ready to move out of my existing home, in which I was friends with my landlord, and casually expressed wanting to find a place in the mountains to live. He then commented on the fact that they owned a “vacation cabin” in an area of the mountains that was very secluded, approximately 50 to 60 miles away that sat on a small lake. I asked him for the address, but he didn’t know it off hand, and said he’d get back with me on it. So I decided to drive up to the area and look around to see if I liked it, with the thought that I might be able to figure out which cabin it was. As I got to the small town that it was just outside of, I stopped at the small gas station to get a map of the area and find the back roads that had lakes, which they all did, as the area was populated with several lakes and all the roads were dirt roads. I randomly picked one to start with because it stood out in my mind, and as I drove down it I came up over a hill where there was a small lake, and saw a moose standing at the edge of the water. As I stopped to look at the moose, I saw several small cabins around the lake, one of which was directly behind the moose. So I decided to drive around the lake and look at the different cabins. As I drove along, I looked for addresses, which were difficult to find, and as I came up on the cabin that was directly behind the moose, I saw the address was “44”. With this realization a deep sense of excitement came over me and I knew at that moment that it was the cabin I was going to live in. And of course it turned out to be the cabin my landlord owned and rented to me the next day.

We’re Guided through our Life Dreams Our dreams and life purpose come to us in much the same way. We have mental impressions as imaginary ideas born out of a strong feeling that’s magnetic in nature and always acting to draw us deeper and deeper into them. We feel a deep connection to and for certain ideas and we’re always imagining ourselves doing them as a form of daydreaming. Even when we can’t really see what they’re guiding us into, we are definitely aware that they serve as a form of navigation system for creating our life experiences. If we try to ignore them or give them up in favor of a different path, they never really die or go away, but continue instead to live inside of us. They remain alive in us as a deep and relentless longing for them, and we often “miss them” like a long lost lover whose memory aches in our bones. This is how destiny calls our name while biding time awaiting for our return. These mental impressions are significant to us because they produce a strong emotional response in us that’s very compelling and attractive. They usually fill us with a sense of wonder, awe, and fascination. They act to invoke deep feelings of love in us and a strong desire for them. This is the experience of connecting with our self in the outer world, or as an idea that we naturally participate in and create our life experiences out of as a result. They entice us with a form of benevolent seduction because we awaken and become more alive in response to them. These ideas live in our heart and are grown with our mind, like seeds deep in the earth, laced with memories that seem distant, yet eerily familiar, stimulated by the warmth of the sun causing us to rise up to it with an innocent eagerness and playful enthusiasm. A seed, that once it sprouts, grows in us until it consumes us and we “become” by way of the experiences it brings. It’s the means through which we “become one with it” and create ourselves through the identity and path it provides as a clear purpose and direction for our life.

How we Receive Communication as Ideas from a Higher Plane The Pineal gland is the only single-shaped endocrine gland that corresponds with the subtle organ of the “third-eye”, and represents a “single vision” for our life as connected to our Divine source, in what has been called “God’s Will” for our life. When God’s Will as the will of our Higher Self, becomes our choice for our life’s path, a kind of “quickening” takes place in the sense that things manifest in a synchronistic fashion in a much shorter period of time. When we resist it, fear it, doubt it, or need guarantees in order to commit to following it, it torments us. It becomes the basis of our inner turmoil and robs us of our inner peace and deep sense of purpose, which is the true foundation to freedom and happiness. God, as our Higher Self is always talking to us through a form of hypnotic suggestion as implanted mental impressions and ideas that are coupled with a natural love for them that makes them seem very compelling. They come through our subconscious mind in an automatic and immediate fashion and stand out as significant because of the emotions they invoke in us in response to them. It’s not guilt, fear, or intimidation, nor is it presented as what you “should do”, but comes as a knowing, a familiarity, and a natural love that seems to answer the question as a longing that lives inside of us, always beckoning us on, silently whispering our name, showing us where to go, and what to connect with in order to get there. It doesn’t come through an outward source, although signs and messages that relate to it and seem to remind us of it do, but comes instead from an inside source. It comes as an idea that you recognize as being your true self, that’s a part of your true nature and what you’re perfectly designed to do. It comes through what you have a natural inclination towards. There are no agenda’s or expectations attached to it, just a gentleness that’s also firm and never wavers. It doesn’t speak to you not in another person’s voice, but silently in your own mind as your voice commanded by a higher and more divine source. It’s like a parent urging you on, or a lover extending their hand to you and gently leading you onto the dance floor where you flow together in a single motion. It’s an intimate and loving connection that you feel at one with. It’s a relationship with the Higher Aspect of yourself who always has your best interest in mind and only acts to teach you by increasing your awareness around things, allowing you to make better and more beneficial decisions for your life.

       The Pineal is our physical antenna, transmitter and receiver from higher worlds of pure vibration. The transmission of information from higher planes comes as the potential for creating the realities of life, and is represented by mental imagery that’s coupled with a strong feeling sensation that acts to invoke a strong emotion in response to it. The mind as the “subtle body” operates the physical body through the Endocrine System through a form of “stimulus- response”, or cause and effect.  The Pineal gland regulates “state” and produces a chain reaction with all the other Endocrine glands to produce and regulate the chemistry of the body to match the state of the mind.  Our state-of-mind is produced by whatever mental imagery we focus on and think about as an imaginary reality. All ideas from the Higher Plane come as archetypes (thematic ideas) with the inherent properties of sound and visual form and are translated into a plausible reality in the imagination of the individual acting to receive them. The mental impression that’s formed becomes the pattern for creating a certain type of reality, and the emotion invoked in response to it is what connects us to that same idea in our external environment, and acts to attract it while simultaneously reorganizing the field of information around us to be of the same nature. We are connected to everyone and everything around us through emotions, which are connected to certain types of ideas and are what ignite and bring them to life. The 3rd-Eye and Pineal gland is how we receive ideas from higher realms as a form of vertical transmission that seeds the heart (and nervous system) with the feeling of that idea, producing a corresponding horizontal transmission that organizes and connects us with that same idea in everything around us. The ideas we get from the higher plane are expressed emotionally within our current situation, and connect us to others living out the same idea as a part of a greater dynamic that’s of the same or similar nature. The higher source of consciousness transmits through the subconscious mind, which is passive and receptive in nature, providing the “program” that serves to lead us into a specific idea as the fulfillment of our dreams and our true destiny.

The Soul speaks to the Subconscious through Metaphor and Symbolic Ideas This idea is represented by the capstone (Higher Self) of the “all-seeing eye” on the pyramid (triune mind) that’s actually an antenna and mirror that reveals the “micro and macro as being complementary opposites of the same thing”.  This idea is further symbolized by the equal armed cross. As above, so below, forms the vertical arm of the cross as information coming from the plane above, that sets the equivalent emotional frequency as a living (active) pattern (form), which transmits and receives information of the same emotional nature on the material or lateral plane. This transmission within the material plane is represented by the horizontal line of the cross, which intersects at the heart or center, and in Sacred Geometry by the Vesica Piscis of the Dyad as the “womb of the universe”, which expands and separates from itself as the Monad, then births reality out of the same qualities it shares in common with another to form a joint reality. The higher mind, represented by the single point at the top of the triangle (3rd-eye as the unified mind), divides into polar opposites of itself as it descends into the lower plane of material reality as dual aspects – body and soul, subconscious and self-conscious, and inner and outer – and acts “on itself” in the lower plane by informing and programming the subconscious aspect of Itself. This primary form of mental programming comes as feelings and mental impressions that are of an internal and subtle source, yet strangely powerful, compared to the mental programming that comes from the outer world which is loud, often intense and obtrusive, and being formed out of multiple agendas all taking place simultaneously that only acts to awaken within us emotions and ideas of the same nature. Emotions are the language of the material plane and are of a universal nature, where we all experience them in pretty much the same way, whereas the thoughts we form in response to them are unique to us as the memories we formed while experiencing those same emotions. The soul, which partakes in both the spiritual and the material world as the medium that ties them together, is what produces both the inner and the outer reality, which it then creates the illusion of having to “choose between” in terms of how it identifies with the reality of its own making and the experiences that naturally ensue out of its decision. If the soul mistakes itself for “being” the body, only sensing itself “as” the body, and lives life for the sake of material gain and the fulfillment of selfish desires, “building itself” out of the material plane, it “bonds itself” to the material body and “dies” (its identity) with the body. If the soul realizes it’s true identity as a spiritual being and answers the call of its destiny to serve the greater whole of humanity, and utilizes its ability to “create itself” by identifying instead with its higher self, then it builds itself according to spirit, and magnetizes itself to the spiritual plane. The soul itself exists as an “archetypal idea” that it creates of itself rather than an actual personality that’s limited to a specific body, time, and place. By releasing all attachments to the material plane as a means of creating its “sense of self” as something and someone specific, it resides in an immortal state and as a result transcends the death of the body.

The Nature of Conflict between Known and Unknown aspects of Ourselves Our Pineal and corresponding third-eye is our transmitter and receiver to the higher realms of our true divine nature. We’re always being led through intuitive methods as subtle ideas that are superimposed over outer ideas revealing the true nature of things as an opposite and direct reflection of each other. They contrast with each other in order to define and bring clarity. Inner turmoil is designed to show us where we’re in “conflict with ourselves” between conscious and unconscious aspects that are working together to produce our experience of ourselves as a cohesive reality. It shows us where we’re having trouble making decisions, where there’s a contrast between the inner and the outer, between how we feel in contrast to the expectations of others that seem to contradict each other. Where we feel one way and know in very clear terms what we want to do, but feel afraid to do it because of the consequences it will render. Where self-doubt, sabotaging tendencies and beliefs seemingly prevent us from doing it, or we constantly talk ourselves out of it without ever actually taking action on it to create it. Internal conflict is always showing us a choice that we’re having difficulty making, or where we think we’ve made a firm decision yet remain in a constant state of debating it by going back and forth. If we simply make the decisions we need to, the conflict ceases and we immediately move forward in creating the reality of our decision, though it may simultaneously act to set another one in motion. But if we don’t make the decision we know we need to make and we continue on the same path causing the inner turmoil, we just continue going back and forth, and act to torment ourselves through an anguish that’s self-inflicted and maintained in a habitual manner.

Pulling it all together We’re always in the process of receiving, transforming, and transmitting information as imaginary ideas from multiple planes simultaneously through intuition. The higher and lower plane as a vertical transmission is polar in nature as complementary opposites, whereas the material plane as a horizontal transmission is sympathetic in nature. We can only receive a transmission from the higher plane while we’re in a passive and receptive state within the lower plane. All communication from our Higher Self comes through our subconscious mind, which exists in a constant passive and receptive state, and becomes known to us consciously through feelings, dreams, notions, mental impressions, sudden impulses, intuitive insights, enhanced awareness, and as an inner voice. The subconscious is what produces our perception of the outer world, and reflects the metaphorical idea it’s been seeded with as a projection onto the outer world where we often experience it through a form of coincidence and synchronistic unfolding that has a magical feeling around it, or as a realization around the inner nature of things. When a transmission comes from a Higher Spiritual source, it comes as a feeling that contains a “whole idea” as an imaginary reality that serves as a metaphor that provides the programming necessary for producing it as an outer reality of the same or similar nature. All ideas are “original in nature”, and not “self-produced” from the personality of the body and the memories of our formative conditioning. As we form a comprehension of them they act to educate us as to the true nature of things in terms of how the spiritual is what’s always acting to create and animate the material world. They never make decisions for us, but act instead to bring us a deeper awareness around things that show us new ways of perceiving them, allowing us to make new and more intelligent decisions for our life. They come as a form of guidance that expands our awareness around whatever it is we’re asking or wondering about that dissolves our limitations which are always born out of an incorrect perception of ourselves. Communication that’s telepathically transmitted from the lower, material plane comes as emotional charges of some form that only act to invoke memory, which was self-produced by our personality through how we were raised, and uses that memory as the means to create the present to be of the same idea as the past. Emotions produce automatic behaviors in us in exactly the same way instinct informs and creates automatic behaviors in animals. As we receive an emotional charge, we immediately reference and associate with a memory that was created out of the same emotional state and repeat the same behaviors in an instant and automatic fashion.

        All thoughts that we telepathically tune into and act to receive within the material plane are a form of memory that’s been created by other humans at some point throughout history. As we form imaginary realities with a strong emotion associated with them, we imprint that memory on the ether, which is the same plane of information all of life is tied into within the lower plane as a form of recycled archetypes. We only have the ability to tune into and act as a receiver for the same type of thoughts born out of the same type of emotional states that we’re programmed with. It’s always our emotional state, and not our thoughts, that connect us to everything else within the material world. When an idea as a imaginary thought comes from above, it’s always original in nature and acts to produce a unique form of reality that doesn’t stem from our current memories within our current body or personality. As the idea is turned into a reality by adapting it to our paradigm and current life situation, forming what you could call a symbolic idea as a “seed” (program), it’s brought down into the heart center of the subconscious (4th chakra) where it becomes sensational, and acts to invoke emotions (3rd chakra) that are arousing (2nd chakra) and produce our physical reality (1st chakra) as an equivalent outer experience of the inner reality that started in the imagination. As it enters the heart, symbolic of the subconscious, it forms a horizontal transmission as a kind of gravitational field (electromagnetic field) and connects us to that same emotional reality in everything around us. The reality as a vibration has a self-organizing mechanism in it that acts to organize and configure the outer reality to metaphorically match the inner reality. We can receive transmissions from the material plane while in a fully active state with our conscious, thinking mind, whereas we can only receive communication from higher planes when we pacify the active aspect of our thinking mind. It’s only from a calm, peaceful, and meditative state that we’re able to be a “receiver” for communication from higher planes. This communication is prompted by prayer and “asking” for guidance of some kind, or from our normal state of wondering about something, which acts as a form of inquiry or request for more information as awareness.

Mastering your own Mind: Will, Intuition, and our Relationship with our Higher Self

In order to learn how to master your own mind you have to form a working concept of it in practical terms. In order to do this we have to look at each aspect of the mind and how it functions as a dynamic part of the whole mind. What we commonly refer to as the “mind” is actually threefold in nature and operates simultaneously on different planes of existence as what we could think of as parallel dimensions that are interactive and interdependent in nature, just as what we call the material plane is three dimensions that are interlaced to form what we perceive as a unified, single dimension. The three dimensions of the material plane are accompanied by a fourth dimension of “time and space”, or space-time that’s non-material and purely invisible in nature as a mysterious force that “holds the material world together” as a unified living system. While the mind exists as what we can think of as “spheres of consciousness” that are multidimensional in nature, represented by the Monad in Sacred Geometry, dual aspects of the mind exist simultaneously on the same plane and are what act together in harmony with the Higher Mind to produce the entire reality of the lower material plane.

The Three Complementary Aspects of the Mind

The three primary aspects of the mind that function to create and operate within the material plane are referred to as the Higher Mind or Super-conscious, the subconscious, and the self-conscious mind, with the two latter ones making up what we call the lower mind of the personality. The Higher mind exists on a higher dimension that’s complementary to this one and when it descends into the lower plane it divides into dual and complementary aspects of itself that are necessary in order to self-create by creating an outer corresponding reality in which it “experiences itself”. All creation on the lower, material plane comes through the harmony of both the subconscious (feminine) and self-conscious (masculine) aspects of the same mind being directed and informed by the Higher Mind of the human Soul. It’s only by realizing the natural relationship that exists between the triune aspects of the same mind or soul that we can learn how to consciously cooperate in creating our self and our outer reality, which is formed as a projection of the self as our “perception”. All perception of the outer reality is formed by the individual mind as a primary form of self-expression. This is demonstrated in the symbol used for the Monad as a “dot within a circle”, or the brain that creates the outer membrane as an expansion of itself.

The most fundamental way of harmonizing the subconscious and self-conscious mind is by learning how to control your thoughts in term of random and repetitive thoughts that run through your mind in an automatic, habitual, and uncensored fashion. All habitual and repetitive thought patterns are produced by the subconscious mind out of memory of some form, whether from actual events of our life or as something we were taught. When we spend most of our time engaged in “thinking” as a form of running memories of various sorts through our mind in a repetitive fashion, we are not only being controlled and determined by our lower, uncreative nature, but we’re living out of a primarily unconscious state where we’re “acting on ourselves” to “inform ourselves” out of memories of the past and thereby only maintain habitual patterns and dynamics of some sort.

       This is the most predominant way we create the present out of the past and can predict the future as a continuation of the past. The subconscious mind has the ability to “create material reality”, yet it operates only out of memory or the thoughts and ideas it’s “given” as suggestions that provide the patterns and themes for creating. It’s passive and receptive in nature and lacks a will as the ability to discriminate and make decisions that provide the means for creating in new and unique ways. The subconscious is the same aspect of the mind we share with the animal kingdom that forms the personality of the body as a part of the “group mind” of a species, and lacks any “individuality” in the true sense, which only comes through the creative “will” that acts to impregnate the subconscious mind with “original thoughts” not derived from personal memory. The subconscious works through the faculty of the imagination and forms a reality out of whatever idea it’s given as a form of suggestion. It only acts to “absorb” and assimilate the thoughts that exist all around it, and doesn’t actually produce the thoughts themselves as ideas, but merely transforms them into material form as the reality of the meaning of the thoughts.

Most people spend their entire lifetime locked into the subconscious realm of the lower self where their thoughts are impulsive, repetitive, based on replaying memories or the past, blindly driven by passions and desires or some sort, or the result of thoughts given to them by others. All original thought and the creations that come from them come as the result of “will”, whether from our self or others. The will is the active component of the mind that acts to seed the passive aspect of the mind, which births it as an outer reality. Thought seeds the imagination which forms our perception and stimulates emotions in response to our thoughts that provide a pattern and instructions for corresponding actions. All behaviors are emotionally driven, and the emotions themselves are produced in response to our thoughts and whatever we place our attention on. All of our actions and deeds create outwardly producing consequences as reactions that form our karma.

Thought and the Creative Power of the Spoken Word

All thought comes as a form of inner dialogue as words spoken silently to ourselves that influences and shapes our perception of reality. Original thoughts as unique ideas impregnate the imagination of the personality with a form of suggestion that it develops into a possible reality as the means for expressing outwardly and manifesting a corresponding experience of reality. When we speak our thoughts outwardly we engage the imagination of other people in the same way, and they cooperate in co-creating it with us as a joint experience. As we speak words, both internally and outwardly, we literally act to call forth the reality of our words. How we think and speak are largely subconscious in nature and take place automatically. Our vocabulary comes predominately through unconscious processes of association. How we think and talk in terms of our sentences, phrases, and our style and figure of speech, all take shape below the self-conscious level. Words not only act to define and shape ideas, but also embody the imagery of the meaning of the words giving form to an ongoing stream of consciousness. As we think we imagine the reality of our thoughts as a form of replaying memories to produce a new variation, we act to provide the subconscious with the means of generating a corresponding outer experience of the same nature.

In the esoteric sense it’s the celestial forces of archetypes that work on the four elements that cause external manifestation. Stars (suns) influence the archetypal forces of the human psyche that populate the astral plane that surrounds us as the atmosphere that we draw our thoughts from in a primarily unconscious and automatic fashion. The celestial field of Astral (star) Light (energies of the sun) as the “unified field” of the collective unconscious, or Akashic field that all human thoughts and deeds are “recorded on” as a mental impression, much like light imprints an image on photographic paper, is the “field of information” as memory of a species that populate human thought in an unconscious manner in exactly the same way instinct works for the animal and plant kingdom.

While many of us have been taught to believe that thought is generated by the brain, it’s not, the brain only acts as a “receiver and transducer” for thought as consciousness that it absorbs from the space around it. Matter only serves as a vehicle or instrument for consciousness to actively express, and has no consciousness of its own or ability to generate consciousness outside of what it acts to attain through resonance. The Akashic field, Astral Plane, unified field of consciousness or information, the collective unconscious, mass consciousness, instinct, scalar waves, quantum wave-function, and dark energy are all terms used to try and describe the same mysterious invisible forces that exist all around us that carry information as memory that’s utilized to produce the consciousness of the soul and body. These are the forces that exist above the level of the personality that act to populate the imagination and provide the means for the perception and ability of the individual to create themselves and their experience of reality.

       Our self-conscious, intellectual mind, the one most think of when we use the term “mind”, is the intellect that has the ability to use the power of thought to deliberately seed the imagination with the reality of that thought. This is the agency of the mind that has supervising authority over itself and dominion over the elemental world through mental powers. All material form is influenced, shaped, and operated using the power of thought as imagined form that stimulates emotion in response to it, which alters the chemistry of the body producing a “unified state” that matches the reality of the thought. The body is an electrical mechanism that’s operated through electrical impulses of various sorts as information in its energetic, vibratory state that stimulate whole biological processes as a synchronized chain of association.

The mind exists as a sphere or field of information, represented by the Monad, as a rotating and pulsating electromagnetic field called a Torus. This field functions through the principle of respiration, drawing in air (intelligence) of the invisible atmosphere, metabolizing and synthesizing it, then exhaling or emanating re-mixed air as an electromagnetic flow of intelligence propelled by a life-force energy that’s self-perpetuating and self-sustaining. This operates in the same way we produce thoughts as memories that create our experiences and provide a form of self-programming as a feed-back loop that’s continuous in nature. This torus as a circular flow of spiraling electromagnetic energy is the force that circulates our blood carrying information as chemical messengers that nourishes and vitalizes the body, in-forming the DNA of the blood and cellular structure simultaneously. Thought as perception and the emotions produced by them “inform” our DNA, altering the electromagnetic field it produces as the means of structuring matter, and is the means by which we transform the body by regenerating it to a new form. Not a form of an entirely different nature, but as a variation or modified version that either upgrades or degrades, depending on what type of though is employed.

Thought, which is also invisible, produces emotion as life-force or magnetic fluid of the Astral plane, both of which exist outside of the body as waves that propagate through a field that acts as a carrier wave, stimulate, produce, transform, regulate, and sustain the chemistry of the body. The body is an electromagnetic mechanism that’s programmed and driven through electrical impulses that appear out of “thin air”, out of nowhere as a form of inspiration, intuition, or emotional charge. Once an electrical impulse is received and absorbed through sympathetic induction, it sets an entire series of biological processes into motion that alter and animate material form. These electrical impulses as vibration have patterns inherent in them as memory that are transmitted and received from both the material plane of emotion and the higher planes of original thought. We’re either electrically running our own mind-body system as an enclosed system through a constant feed-back loop of repetitive thought and emotions, or by taking in and developing the thoughts and emotions of others, or by becoming a passive receptor for thoughts of the higher plane of universal archetypes as the Higher Will.

Receptivity and Will

While many believe their “will” is something that originates in their personality, much like the idea made popular by the movie “The Secret” as the means of manifesting material possessions and circumstances, and there’s certainly no denying that willpower is a part of our inherent equipment, yet the idea of a true “personal will” doesn’t exist. All volition of a seemingly personal nature comes as the synthesis of innumerable interrelated cosmic influences coming together as a focus point “within us” at an exact moment in time. This is why Jesus said “of myself I am nothing”, and that everything came from the Father. The true Will of an original and individual nature only comes from our Higher Self on a higher plane where we act as the receiver and translator for it to produce what appears like a personal creation. We have to still our mind of our habitual thoughts and personal agendas, of always wanting and craving, in order to tune into and receive the intuition of a Higher Power.

The human personality serves only as a vessel for cosmic forces to express through. The more we tame and calm the random unconscious thoughts motivated by passions and desires, the more freely the Primal Will behind all manifestation can find expression through us, which comes as a form of intuition and inspired thought, and is always of a universal nature in the sense that it not only works for our higher good, but for the higher good of everyone involved. It doesn’t operate to satisfy desires born out of our personal illusions of happiness for ourselves, but out of a more universal intention that operates according to the bigger picture involved and by incorporating the will of everyone involved to a congruent means. We can learn from observing our experiences that the true strength of volition is measured to the exact degree of our willingness to “let life” find unobstructed manifestation through us.

Our true Will comes to us from a higher, non-personal source as an insight into or realization around something as a silent thought or inner voice that produces a mental impression that we look through that’s similar to reflection on glass. This type of “willingness” is developed through purposeful concentration as a form of ongoing meditation. We become the vehicle for our Higher Will by keeping our body in a relaxed state, making the mind passive by stilling all active thoughts, becoming fully present in the moment while forming an awareness of the limitless powers inherent in the space around us, while cultivating the progressive freedom to allow those powers to express through us as our primary purpose. This is the practical means of using the mind in the manner it’s intended to be used as the means of exercising dominion over the elements of the material world. When our mind is run by impulses, constant thinking driven by emotions, passions, desires, and urges, the elemental world is governing us and using our will to create through.

The Power of Suggestion to Produce Reality

We must explain and impress upon our subconscious mind over and over through a form of suggestion, that it’s the vehicle for the Universal Will. In order to be effective we have to base those suggestions on reason that’s married to compelling emotions. The subconscious is the creative aspect of the mind in terms of producing material reality, and is the means through which all designs, plans, and inventions come to us as an inner voice or thought, that forms the visual reality of those thoughts in the imagination. All true creativity comes through intuition as the reception of original ideas from an outside source that are comprehended in the mind’s eye by forming a concept or internal representation of them as a possible reality (not born out of personal memory). The subconscious is the means through which cosmic forces of the universal mind enter into our personal field and form the basis for all of our personal creations. The subconscious then reflects the ideas given to it in the imagination as mental impressions where the self-conscious mind becomes aware of them as an inspired thought or form of intuition.

Thought and speech are potent in stimulating and molding the subconscious response. This also produces profound changes in our physical structure because the subconscious is also the consciousness of the body as the body-building and changing agent. Our thoughts as imaginary ideas that elicit an emotional response, literally reprogram the DNA of the body (brain within each cell), transforming us to correspond to the meaning of our thoughts, making us more able to transform and express cosmic forces as personal activities. These cosmic forces exist and are active in the atmosphere (air = the element of intelligence and thought) all around us without our direct awareness because they operate through the subconscious mind, which reflects them in the imagination for the self-conscious mind to become aware of as thoughts that it mistakes for being “self-generated” because they come from within.

       All truth in terms of universal laws and the operations involved in all natural processes can be realized through deepened forms of self-realization. Self-examination will reveal to you in very plain terms that even the least of your personal thoughts and activities are a particular manifestation of a phase of the sum-total of cosmic influences all coming together at a specific point in time as a synchronistic stream of consciousness. Everything we have ever done in the past has led up to this moment in time. All personal thoughts and manifestations come as the result of past memories and actions repeated in a similar fashion in the present. The self-conscious mind which is usually driven by the personality isn’t capable of an original thought, and simply operates in the same fashion as the subconscious mind that births it by replaying memory of some kind. Original thought that’s truly creative and innovative in terms of providing the means for creating new forms of reality comes only through our ability to act as a passive receptor for consciousness from our Higher Self as intuition. It operates by the same principles that govern instinct.

Complete receptivity produced by relaxing the body and stilling the activities of the concrete mind is the secret to the most powerful manifestations of Will. Receptivity can intentionally be produced and increased using language as a formulated suggestion given to the subconscious by the self-conscious as a directed thought. Our normal, everyday thoughts are at once being produced in an impulsive way by our subconscious, which is repetitive in nature and produced out of memory and learned behaviors, while simultaneously acting to program or inform the subconscious as to what to create more of. All “original thought” comes to us as intuition from a higher source that’s outside of our sphere of consciousness that can only be “absorbed” and drawn into our mind when in a passive and receptive state. There’s nothing more powerful and beneficial to our creative ability and will than cultivating the ability to meditate, stilling our thoughts while in a completely relaxed state, and entering into a deep state of concentration as being fully present within our sphere of awareness. In this sense, all magic as true creativity lies in the Will and imagination.

The Relationship between DNA, the Subconscious Mind, and the Subtle Body

The formula for multiple levels of self-creation as a dynamic combination of the spirit, soul, mind, and body, currently being re-discovered by modern science, was laid out as a diagram illustrating the “subtle bodies” in Esoteric Sciences thousands of years ago. This map of the subtle bodies was used as the basis for all forms of healing and self-development, and as the means of achieving self-mastery which was necessary in order to consciously undergo the process of personal transformation from a lower state of consciousness to a higher one. This diagram illustrated the hierarchical relationship of the mind and body as fields nested within fields that brought an idea as an invisible archetypal field of information into physical form through the principles represented by the five elements. It showed a physical body with various layers of an outer aura or electromagnetic field as the etheric plane which formed the blueprint for the physical body, the astral or emotional body, the mental plane of thought, and the causal field of archetypes and Will.

While we have a tendency to separate parts of a whole, then create a whole out of the part while imagining that it functions independently as a separate entity from the whole in which it was abstracted, the fact is every single aspect of a whole operates according to the same principles and can’t be accurately understood as a separate state. All material bodies as we know them are accompanied by an electromagnetic field that acts to organize the individual particles into a whole living system as a “field of information”. Yet this isn’t an entirely accurate model either, because in reality all biological forms come as a process of cellular regeneration , where one cell replicates itself and divides to become two, which then replicates and divides to become four, then eight, then sixteen, and so on, and grows through a process of “halving and doubling”. All cells contain information as DNA for producing every aspect of the whole body, where cells differentiate and specialize by what aspects of the total information are turned on and off, forming a new configuration. Our entire body forms a hologram where the part exists and contains the information of the whole, and the whole exists as or in each part.

What we refer to as the electromagnetic field that accompanies all physical form, which of course is invisible, exists as what we also refer to as the “mind” of the body, and the “phantom effect” produced by DNA itself as a measurable field of organized information as what has traditionally been called the “etheric body”, or subtle body which is holographic in nature as a three-dimensional form that’s the exact duplicate of the material body. This “holographic, phantom-like form” is what we now know provides the blueprint for organizing and spatially locating the specialized cells within the body. This energetic field both organizes the information in the DNA to produce a duplicate as its twin in physical form, and radiates from within the DNA as a means of “informing the space around it”. Just as all atoms are comprised of a group of particles held together forming an intelligent living system by an invisible force, the whole body is fabricated through a process of regeneration, held together, vitalized, and operated by an invisible force called the “subtle body” which is itself produced and operated by the mind.

       Science has now discovered and proven that matter is composed of light as “packets of information” that exist simultaneously as both a particle (local) and a wave (non-local). These packets of information as subtle energy are organized into a coherent field of information as the subtle body, which provides the etheric blueprint (hologram) for creating the body as a projection of the mind and soul. What appears as trillions of cells that make up our whole body are actually the “same cell” duplicated, differentiated, and multiplied to form a “greater whole” as specialized functions of the same thing.  DNA is composed of both matter and etheric substance that’s organized by an electromagnetic field that produces a holographic form as the “potential” contained within the information.  The molecular structure of our body operates in a unified manner where the DNA within the nucleus or brain of the cell receives, processes and interprets, and transmits information instantaneously “as” a whole – as if it’s one field or body – and interacts with and responds to the outer reality as a relationship with itself on a greater scale. Information doesn’t follow a physical pathway of communication from cell to cell, nor is it transmitted through the nervous system, but received by the DNA of each cell instantaneously at the exact same time.

The body (any living organism) is formed through the holographic principle where every cell of the body results from the regeneration of a single cell through the process of mitosis, and is all in fact one and the same thing formed from a single (double helix) strand of DNA as the basic information used to construct the body. They’re all formed by the same group of information as memory, and become unique parts that perform specialized functions based on how the information is reconfigured through a “switching system” that turns information within the cell on and off, forming dynamic sequences. The part becomes the whole, and the whole is contained within the part. If we take any part (cell) out of the whole system we’ve  got all the information it takes to make the entire organism in the single cell.

DNA, when abstracted and separated from the body it originated in, still continues to respond as if it’s still a part of the body. It’s still a part of the “unified field” from whence it came through a state of energetic “entanglement”. The part contains the properties of both the particle and the wave, and exists as both simultaneously and continues to operate according to the duality of light (photons), which is the primary substance of matter. It operates according to the principles of particle/wave duality. Light and matter (which is essentially the same thing) exhibit both properties of a wave and particle as a single entity that exists throughout space and time, and can act on itself to interfere with itself when demonstrating wave-like properties, and influences itself into new and varied configurations by acting to turn different aspects on or off. Each cell of a whole body vibrates to the exact same frequency, and frequencies as electromagnetic fields propagate through space, which acts as a medium for them.

       Light is made up of “packets of information”, much like an atom is formed out of a cluster of particles, as energy quanta called photons. Photons exist as a “wave of potential or possibility”, much like all the information contained in a single strand of DNA, and only appears as a stable material form (particle) when organized or frozen into a specific configuration by the mind that interacts with it, and then returns to a flow of photons as a wave function when not being organized by a mind. While we have been taught to see an atom as an organized system of particles rotating around a nucleus in a fixed manner, we now know that this isn’t true. The atom only appears as a fixed and stable system when it’s being “viewed” and perceived by the mind. When no one is “looking at it”, it returns to a wave of potential that appears as a blur or astral cloud-like substance. This ability of the mind to organize matter operates in the same manner or according to the same principle as the etheric body that provides the energetic blueprint for regenerating and multiplying one cell to create a unified field of information as a whole body comprised of billions of cells that continues to function through time and space as if it’s “one”.

Matter, which can be thought of as “frozen light” or the “crystallization of light”, exists as an electrical organism (mechanism) that’s operated through electrical impulses as a photoelectric effect of one or more photons propagating through space as electromagnetic waves. Wave-particle duality is a property not only of light, but of matter as well, because of course matter is ultimately composed of photons in its primary essence. The entire material world is composed of crystallized light produced by electromagnetic fields as intelligent subtle energy also referred to as the “mind” and the individual consciousness of the mind called the “soul”.

While many people tend to think in terms of separating the spiritual from the material, in reality they’re the same thing at different stages and phases of “becoming” as electrified or charged plasma that organizes a etheric form that acts to systematically produce a material form through a steady process of solidification (coagulation) or generation. The four “states of matter” are described as electrified plasma that forms a gas-like substance, which becomes a liquid, which then becomes a solid object. This can also be illustrated through the element of water, which exists in different states as plasma or air, as humidity, a liquid and a solid material when frozen. All of which are different states of the same thing. These stages of forming the material world correspond to the four elements (fire, air, water, and earth) of esoteric sciences, which are organized, formed, and given life through the fifth element of the Aether or the mind of the soul.

        What science now calls “Entanglement Theory” basically states that whatever is “born together” (as in the cells of the body), or that become energetically entangled and vibrate in harmony as the same frequency and nature (mind and soul of the body), operates as a single unit, and continues to operate as one even when separated by great distances. They exist in a fundamental state of polarity as complementary opposites, which means they spin in opposite directions to each other, and whatever property is being measured (observed and fixated by the mind) in one, the other one instantaneously reflects the same property. As the “state” of one particle or cell changes, the state of all entangled parts change in a unified movement because they exist as being a part of the same field, which exists everywhere throughout the space-time continuum simultaneously. They exist as what appears to be individual particles and as an inherent part of the same field of information. What’s of the “same nature” influences each other, no matter where they’re located in the unified field, through their shared “state of mind” and emotions.

This has huge implications not only in terms of our own minds ability to organize and transform our physical body as a correspondence to it, but also explains the mystery of being able to “produce and effect” or heal somebody at a distance with a small amount of their blood or locket of hair, or anything that contains their DNA. By “acting to transform the chemical make-up of their DNA” in the sample provided, it simultaneously produces the same effect in every cell of the body, no matter how far away. Likewise, by tuning into the person by speaking their name several times while concentrating (words connect us to the reality inherent in the words) on them, we can intuitively connect with them mentally and influence them through our state of mind, altering their state and the thought-processes and emotions produced by that state, altering their DNA as a result. This same effect is produced through direct communication by what we say to someone that causes them to imagine the reality of our words as a possibility for experience, and forming a belief out of them as a result. This also gives us insight as to how we are literally transformed (to some degree) through sexual intercourse where we “acquire” some of the other persons DNA, and they ours, and become somewhat subject to their thoughts, emotional states, and actions as taking on the same “morality” and aligning ourselves with the same type of destiny. We literally become one with whomever we have sexual intercourse with.

The Astral Plane of Emotion

Emotion is the “language” of the material plane that also governs instinct and intuition. It’s the dominant property of the lower regions of the astral plane of formation, and the language of the subconscious mind, which is the same level and aspect of the mind we share with the natural world and the plant and animal kingdoms. It’s the energy that’s transmitted within the material plane as notions, urges, and mental impressions that spontaneously alters our state producing automatic behaviors that are systematically employed without direct awareness. In humans, who are bestowed with higher creative capacities of the mind, emotions go a step further in how they affect us by acting to produce whole imaginary realities as illusions that we use in place of the actual, objective reality, that’s produced by the memories associated with the emotion that provides a template for automatic behaviors. All behavior in the ultimate sense is emotionally driven or a product of will, which can override emotion and direct the subconscious with new behaviors based on reason, realization, and rational calculated thinking.

Emotions, which originate in the electromagnetic plane, come in a variety of ways as either a natural response to our own thoughts, as a transmission and thought-form from another being outwardly expressing emotions, as an instinctual response to a feeling or idea, or as a form of association to a memory that was created while in the same emotional state. As we form an emotional response to something we automatically reference a memory of a similar nature that was created while in that same emotional state that provides us with a form of template for creating an imaginary reality as an internal representation that we use in place of the actual or present reality making it out to be the same as the past experience.

This imaginary reality based on memory of some kind provides the template as a story-line or theme that we use for creating an illusion that provides us with an instant interpretation as the means of creating more of the same type of idea, causing us to act in the same way we did in the past situation of a similar nature. In this way, through natural emotional reactions, we engage in a natural form of instinct as intuition that uses memory in place of the intellect and reasoning to create more of the same type of ideas, experiences, and behaviors over and over based on past experiences. Through our emotional states and the automatic behaviors they produce, we continue to create the present to be like the past through an unconscious state that doesn’t require thought or use of choice and free will.

The Subconscious Mind

The subconscious mind operates without direct awareness to produce realities out of memories, and reactive behaviors that are automatic and emotionally driven. The subconscious is the same aspect of the mind we share with all of nature and is what literally produces the substratum of material reality as the collective unconscious or group mind, and automatic functions of the body and behaviors that are involuntary in nature and don’t require a thought process or decision of any kind. It’s the aspect of the mind that forms our “body consciousness”, which operates and informs the DNA of our body by influencing it through emotional states produced by thoughts as actual or imagined realities. The subconscious is the “active mind” and is continuously active from the moment of conception and birth till our last breath and moment of physical death. While our self-conscious mind is only awake and active part of the time, our subconscious is continuously active and never sleeps, yet it operates for the most part without our direct awareness.

The Relationship between Thought and Emotion

Thought and emotion, which can also be seen as masculine and feminine aspects of the same thing, operate as “one” and one serves to automatically produce and influence the other. When descending as a downward movement from the higher, causal plane, we form a thought process in our mind as an idea that naturally stimulates an emotional state in response to it. The emotion married to the thought acts as the “physical equivalent” to the thought and systematically adjusts the chemistry of the body to match the reality produced by the thought. As we think we’re simultaneously regulating the chemistry of the body to produce the physical reality of our thoughts. The subconscious, which is experiential in nature and works through the imagination, doesn’t know the difference between a memory of an actual event or an imaginary one. This is because they’re both produced by the faculty of the imagination, and memories, once created, are replayed over and over through the imagination as a way of keeping the past alive in the present and using the same type of information, much like a feedback loop, to keep re-informing the body and our outer reality with the same type of information, producing a “consistent and congruent” version of our self and our experience of ourselves in our outer reality.

DNA as the Creative Intelligence of the Body and Outer Reality

The DNA of our body operates according to the same principles of both our self-conscious and subconscious mind, and is regulated primarily through our emotional states and imaginary thoughts. We are literally always creating our own physical constitution and character by how we inform our DNA, and organizing our outer reality through the electromagnetic field emanated by our DNA that interacts energetically with the DNA in every other living entity. The entire material world is formed by the information contained in DNA. As we think and form an emotional response to our own thoughts we literally act to “structure the reality” of our thoughts through the “meaning” they have. Thought and emotion form meaning as the basis for creating our experiences. Out of meaning comes the story we tell ourselves as a form of theme that provides us with a consistent version of reality that provides the basis for how we experience things.

DNA works to construct material form out of memory in much the same way that the subconscious mind, soul, and the archetypal realm of higher consciousness as “universal memory” does, all of which play off of each other and are used as the means for creating personal experiences that are formed out of the meaning and significance of something. We form personal memories out of the experiences we had of the events of our life that had a strong emotional impact. Events with little or no emotional impact are never really remembered in any detail, but merely as vague generalizations or forgotten all together. Events that had strong emotions associated with them, determine how we form the memory as the experience of it, which was shaped by the nature of the emotion we were experiencing at the time. The event itself merely sets the stage for enacting a theme of sorts that shapes how we experience it by the type of story we tell ourselves about it. The emotion the event invoked in us, determines the nature of how we created our experience of it through the “telling”. The same basic event and group of elements can be used to tell a story as a serious drama, adventure, comedy, or tragedy based on the emotion engendered and the type of reality that’s naturally inherent in the emotion. Emotions have very distinct types of experiences and fantasies inherent in them that form how we experience life and create ourselves (program our subconscious and DNA) by way of our experiences.

Our thoughts and emotions, which form the internal representations born in our imagination that we use to give things meaning, also act to inform and program our DNA, which, like the subconscious mind, acts as a receiver for information that it translates to produce instructions for organizing the material world. These emotional thoughts are produced by the union of the self-conscious and subconscious based on current life experiences and memories, and from the higher mind of archetypal memory that forms “original thought” that acts to transform and evolve our current creation by recomposing it through the integration of new and diverse information. The common denominator between reality as a neutral set of events that we use as the means of creating our experiences out of and the subconscious mind and DNA, as memory, (of the Soul, subconscious, DNA, and archetypes) is semantics. How we organize the cells of our body and the appearance of the outer world, which is always a correspondence to the inner world, is based on the meaning we give things as our perception of them that form our “life story”. It’s through meaning that we self-create and create our experience of our outer reality.

       DNA acts as the link and medium between the mind and material reality and is programmed or informed in an evolutionary manner through our very thoughts and emotions and the imaginary realities we create out of them. It’s through the imagination that we program the subconscious and DNA as a set of instructions, which produce the equivalent as an experience of reality. Not necessarily by changing reality itself, but rather by changing how reality appears to us based on how we interpret it to give it meaning. As we think, feel, emote, and act, we’re producing a form of etheric template that provides the blueprint as an electromagnetic field of information for organizing how the material world “appears” to us. We self-create by way of our own thoughts and emotions in the most basic and rudimentary sense of the idea.

Both the subconscious and DNA, which is the conscious intelligence that organizes and structures material form, are “experiential” in nature, and operate out of memory as imagined experiences produced by a combination of thought, feeling sensations that make it real and elicit an emotion, altering the chemistry of the body to match the state of mind. These all work together in a synchronistic and congruent manner to produce an imaginary reality that has meaning as a way of experiencing it through the story we tell ourselves about it that creates a form of self-perpetuating “feedback loop”. Through the nature of our thoughts we’re always in the process of telling ourselves a story about everything that has a consistent meaning that we use as the means of literally creating ourselves and our experience of reality. If we change the nature of our story, we change ourselves and our world accordingly.

As we think, feel, and imagine the reality of our thoughts, we systematically create ourselves (program our subconscious and DNA) and our outer world as congruent correspondences to our inner imagining. We are literally the ones always creating ourselves by way of how we’re using all levels of our mind in unison to create experiences in our imagination that become the instructions as a projection and transmission for creating our reality. As we program our subconscious and DNA, the electromagnetic field of information that they produce acts to inform the subconscious and DNA of everything else in the outer, natural world of which they are an inherent part of, and through electrical impulses as resonance, acts to reconfigure it by turning some information off while turning other information on, composing it into a new variable as a personal creation. Our mind as a mental paradigm, vibratory frequency and dynamic pattern literally acts to influence, recompose and transform of field of potential into one possibility that matches our idea about it. Every person creates a unique version of reality through their perception of it.

The Law of Correspondences

All parallel planes that make up the four dimensional material world and the higher spiritual world of pure energy as unformed consciousness, exist in a natural relationship to each other as complementary opposites that are polar in nature. The activity that takes place on one plane propagates through all related planes as a series of correspondences or chain of association. The same vibration as a form of note or chord that is part of a whole octave resonates with that same chord on all higher and lower octaves. As they resonate, the passive aspect of one acts to draw in and absorb the active aspect of the same idea from a parallel plane, which influences it, altering its vibration and modifying the existing pattern to a new possibility for the same idea as a natural means of transformation that gradually evolves the form to a new kind or level. As we draw in energy as vibratory information from the space around us and synthesize it by becoming one with it in mind, we begin vibrating in harmony with it and it modifies our thought processes through the realization it brings, changing how we see ourselves and our world.

The most natural and immediate way we have of creating ourselves and developing our character that simultaneously modifies and transforms our physical body and outer reality, is by learning how to keep our body in a relaxed state while stilling our mind of random habitual thoughts, and focusing our attention on the idea of what we want to create. It’s only through deep states of concentration on an idea as an imagined experience of reality, that’s defined and developed with detail over an extended period of time that serves to invoke an equivalent emotion, that’s then thought about or “remembered” in a consistent fashion, that we create a “virtual memory” as an intentional form of “self-programming”. By controlling and directing our thoughts and what we imagine as possible scenarios, or what memories we dwell in and think about in a repetitive manner, we can regulate our emotional state and “act on ourselves” to reprogram ourselves with a corresponding reality. All ideas exist in a primary state of infinite potential for that idea as a kind of theme. The theme employed acts to produce the mental correspondence as our identity and character, the bodily correspondence as our physical health and constitution, and the outer correspondence as our perception of reality. All of which act together to form the story we tell by living it as the means for developing and evolving our soul, mind, physical constitution, and perception of reality through the same memory as a fundamental form of programming.

How to tell True Spiritual Guidance from your own Will and Habitual Memories

       One of the first things we have to establish in order to recognize the nature of how our own mind works, is to realize how ideas come to us. This can be a bit difficult at first, because many don’t have an understanding of the true nature of self-generated thoughts opposed to “inspired thought”, or ideas that come to us as mental impressions that are persistent, and often seem unrelated to what we’ve asked guidance around. Asking for guidance is much like setting an intention as a request for ideas to come to you from outside of your normal realm of thinking, which is usually redundant and just plays the same type of ideas over and over, which you already know aren’t the answers to what you want. We’d also have to look at what or who it is you’re asking and expecting guidance from, and how they or it communicates with you, and what qualifies them to give you guidance as a means of working with you to co-create a future reality of some sort.

In the scope of this idea as we’re exploring it here, I’m not going to address the idea of “spirit guides”, or the idea that we all have some form of “board or committee” as a community of spiritual entities that help us on our way and serve to somehow guide us by counseling, advising, or telling us what to do, but rather through the concept of the “self”, which exists simultaneously on multiple levels of the same coherent reality, and are interactive in nature when a sense of awareness and connection are established and maintained. The “self”, like the soul, mind, and the reality they produce and live within, is threefold in nature. This means that what we are currently experiencing as what we call “reality”, we exist simultaneously at three levels within that reality as a unified and whole reality that exists outside of time, and an individual is sub-divided into parts of that reality as a “self and other”, an inner and outer, upper and lower, that’s playing out a story by “being in it” as a part of it, yet unable to see it from a higher, all inclusive “whole perspective”.

The Soul and the Nature of the Mind

Each plane of existence has three sub-planes or “levels” within it and operates according to the same principle as “kingdoms” do within the material world, which are all interdependent in nature and one evolves naturally out of the other. The lower, dense level of instinctual (animal) consciousness has no creative capabilities, and as we progress upward to higher levels of consciousness we acquire the ability to self-express and create using the power of our mind. The mind, likewise, exists at three different levels within the material plane as the subconscious (the aspect we share with all of Nature), the self-conscious (a human attribute that makes us self-aware and creative), and the Super or Higher Consciousness. The Higher Consciousness is of the spiritual plane (invisible to the material senses) and serves to operate both the subconscious and self-conscious aspects of what we call the “material mind” of the body. The lower, material aspects of the mind are located within the dimension of time and space where it enters into and inhabits a body with a genetically oriented  personality and becomes fully identified with being the body confined within a material existence.

In this same manner, according to the same principles (all principles play out in every area of reality at different scales and through different systems), our “soul”, which is synonymous with the “self” and “mind”, exists on three separate planes, and is “dual or polar” in nature as both masculine and feminine aspects on each plane (again same principle different scales and levels). Each level is created by the dual nature of the one preceding and serving to create it. Each level therefore contains the “entire lower level” that it serves to birth and govern by co-operating the dual aspects of itself on a lower, denser plane of material manifestation. The material mind that serves to form the etheric body is what produces (seed and ovum) the physical body as what we call the lower soul or animal body. Both aspects of the lower, physical self of which only humans (here on Earth) have a “self-conscious” aspect that has the creative capacity of reason, choice, and will to self-create, exists as a part of our lower nature. What we call “heart consciousness” (subconscious) and “brain consciousness (self-aware) are interactive with both themselves and the Higher-Self that governs them.

The Lower Mind of the Animal Body

The subconscious exists as the “passive and receptive” (feminine) aspect, and the conscious mind (of both the higher and same plane), which is the reasoning and willful (masculine) mind is the active and creative aspect of the “same mind”. The conscious mind acts to impregnate the subconscious mind with an idea that the subconscious, which is the aspect of the mind we share with Nature, grows and turns into a material manifestation of the idea. The subconscious “conceives of the will” being projected by the active conscious aspect, and produces a reality out of it. First inwardly as an imagined reality, then outwardly (connects to that same idea in everything else through the shared mind of the subconscious) as a analogous version of the same idea, creating the basis necessary for experiencing it, and creating itself and its life through the experience.

What we think of as the conscious mind of the body (brain consciousness), is birthed fully within the physical body by the subconscious mind, and is a coherent part of the lower, material plane of the subconscious. It’s the aspect of awareness that we form our “identity” out of as our “false ego” that only sees and thinks of itself “as” a body, rather than as a soul that merely inhabits the body as a means of acquiring experiences of itself through the reality of its own mind and memories. All of what we call “thought” as imagined (conceptualized) realities that we experience as being a product of our conscious mind (brain), is actually produced out of memory (body) of some sort, that we simply replay over and over forming endless variables in a habitual and repetitive manner. This is very easy to see and realize when we simply “observe our thoughts”, and the fact that the thoughts (type and kind) we’re having today, are the same type we had yesterday, last week, a month ago, or even years ago. Most of what we think of as “self-generated thoughts” is produced by memory of some sort, which is produced and provided by the subconscious mind, which, having no will of its own, simply creates out of memory in a repetitive fashion. All behavior, which is creative, is produced by repetitive and habitual thoughts that keep the same emotional states active in us, which serve to create more of the same type of reality and experiences over and over, much like a theme.

Another way to recognize the true nature of what we call self-generated thought and our ability to problem-solve, is by realizing that anytime we’re trying to “figure something out”, all we’re really doing is rehashing the same ideas as memories (experienced or taught) over and over, in an attempt to somehow apply them in a new way that will somehow produce a new result or reality. This is where they get sayings like “the true definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again while expecting a different result”, and “a problem can’t be solved by the same mind (type of thinking) that created it”. When left to our own devices, all we’re ever really doing is running through all memories of ideas associated with it, in an attempt to find a new solution. This is because the conscious aspect of the lower mind operates by way of the subconscious mind that births it, and is “memory oriented” and instinctually driven. It “thinks” by way of association and impulses that reference memory as a thought process. All thought, in this sense, is produced by emotional states associated to previous experiences as patterns of that memory that form tendencies.

The Higher-Self

In this same sense, we have the ability to connect to the conscious and willful aspect of our Higher Mind or Self, which oversees and governs the entire lower plane as a unified reality that’s already created (karma and divine providence as prophecy), which likewise, works through the passive aspect of the subconscious mind to “seed it” with an original idea that exists outside of and apart from our personal memories of the past. But it only becomes active when we subdue the same conscious aspect of the material mind, which is also willful and creative by constantly seeding its own subconscious aspect, by calming all thinking, and quieting our internal dialogue. The Higher Consciousness can’t communicate directly with the active aspect of the lower mind and plane, and works in a like manner with the passive aspect of the subconscious mind.

The subconscious, unlike the “talking aspect” of the conscious mind, “thinks” in pictures and images by forming ideas into imagined realities that it then “reflects in the mind’s eye” allowing the conscious mind to “witness it”. When the conscious (aware) mind witnesses it, it comes as an idea that pops into our mind out of nowhere (not self-produced) as a form of inspiration and intuition (which is the same thing). It comes as an idea represented by an image, symbol, or metaphor of some kind, much like a concept, that acts as a form of “universal memory”, in the sense that it provides us with a whole, ready-made idea as a possible reality. If we “act on this idea” without question, it produces a reality that affords us a brand new experience and manifests in a whole new way.

Original Thought as Inspired Ideas      

As ideas “come to us” intuitively from what we sense as a higher, invisible source, we still have to “willfully choose” to except and act on the idea. Nothing manifests as a reality or comes into our life without willful action that fulfills them, or as the means of a form of synchronistic, step-by-step process or chain of events that begin unfolding , which, each time we act on it, forms a pathway to a whole new experience of reality and of ourselves within that reality. Our true ability to “create in an original manner”, doesn’t lie exclusively in our lower mind of the body and identification with the body, but rather in our Higher Mind which isn’t a “product of” the lower material mind of the body.

All “original ideas” come through a form of inspiration as an inner vision or imagining that seems to come to us out of nowhere through an intention or desire we have to “know” and “create” based on that knowing. They come through an inquiry of some form, or by “asking for something” (prayer as a connection to our higher source), wondering about something or forming curiosity around it, or as an intention we set for it based on a desire for it. Our higher conscious “seeds our subconscious” with the idea that initiates a pathway of exploration and discovery. We receive mental impressions or a vision as an idea that is formed outside of our normal awareness and ability to produce it based on personal memory of some sort, that we then have to exercise our freedom of choice and will in order to take in as our own and act on it to create by way of it. Through action of some sort, a whole process is set in motion that ultimately leads gradually into a whole new idea, but only if we choose to act on every intuitive step we realize as it unfolds. It only “manifests” as our reality through constant and consistent action as the use of our ability to choose and willfully act out our choices, producing the reality inherent in them.

The Nature of True Guidance

Nothing is ever done for us by an outside source. we’re simply given guidance on how to bring about the idea as a reality and experience of what we inquired about or asked for. Guidance never comes as being told “what to do”, or as making decisions for us. It only comes as showing us new options, or bringing us new awareness and realization that expands on our ability to choose brand new ideas, which, if acted on will produce brand new experiences of reality, not born out of past memories that simply repeat the same idea in a varied way. If guidance appears to be coming to you as a form of telling you what to do or making decisions for you, it’s more than likely not actual guidance from a higher source but rather the ramblings of different aspects of your own, lower mind and personality. Higher sources of a Divine nature never act to violate choice and free will, which is a birthright and the means for self-creating in which we are always 100% responsible for our own creation.

Because guidance often comes as a completely new idea or way of responding to a familiar problem or well-established situation, and therefore results in a feeling of confusion and uncertainty that comes from the unknown, we can have a tendency to analyze it to death, rather than spontaneously acting on it, or coming face-to-face with our comfort zone and afraid that we won’t know what to do in an unfamiliar situation, and through fear or inhibition of some sort as being unwilling to act or to try something new in an experimental fashion, we doubt it away or convince ourselves it won’t work, and so we don’t even try. While usually going right back to asking for guidance around the same thing again, often, without ever realizing what we’re doing. It’s usually only when guidance comes in a familiar way or as something we’re comfortable with and have a memory around as a means of navigating it that we’re willing to try it or act on it.

In this same token, because guidance usually acts to lead us out of our mental paradigm as a way of conceiving of new possibilities and doesn’t come to us in “whole form” as a single idea or action, but rather as steps that require consistent action in a repetitive manner as an idea that “unfolds” through an unknown process, we choose not to act on it because we don’t know for sure where its leading, or we don’t realize it’s coming in response to our inquiry or intention, because we can’t see how it’s directly related looking through the lens of expectation, which again, is formed of memories of the past. Guidance hardly ever comes in the form of what we expect or imagine it will, and because of this, we often don’t recognize it for what it is.

       All expectation and imagined scenarios as possibilities that we hold as a means of being able to know guidance when it comes, is formed out of memory of the past or what we “think” the answer is going to be based on, or our ability to come up with a solution which is all based on memory of some form, and is what has acted to create our life the way it is currently. So we ask for guidance from a higher source as the aspect of our mind that exists “outside of” our material reality and consciousness as memory acquired through the body, while attempting to perceive it through the lower mind of habitual perceptions as possibilities.

We can know true guidance when it comes as a thought or impression as an image or scenario that represents an idea that “pops into our mind”, or that comes to us in what seems like an unrelated way that has no obvious or apparent connection to our inquiry. One that comes to us in a spontaneous way that’s not the result of our own thinking or attempt to solve our own problem from the same paradigm that created it, but rather as what seems like an objective idea that even when we notice it and think about it briefly as what it implies or means, then let go and move on, persists and becomes consistent. We keep noticing and going back to it and thinking about it, though we usually don’t know why. If a thought persists for a period of time and we fail to take action on it, which is what’s required for it to lead to something else, it eventually fades and subsides. We then either go back to asking while requesting it to “show up” the way we want it to, or we have the experience of “unanswered prayers”, and we form an opinion or belief that prayer doesn’t work.

So the most primary way to tell the difference between true guidance as problem solving from our Higher Self or just wishful thinking, is by whether or not it appears to be coming from a mental source outside of our paradigm and normal way of thinking that’s showing us to do something or a way to go that we couldn’t have come up with or produced on our own through memory or established learning of some sort. Realizing that it comes as an “original thought or ideas” that we didn’t or couldn’t (based on normal perception and way of thinking) have come up with on our own as an answer. Understanding that it never violates choice and free will by telling us what to do or making our decisions for us, or through producing strong emotional reactions that prompt automatic behavior, or as something that’s manipulative and trying to get us to do something we don’t want to, but rather as an objective idea or intuitive feeling that bring insight into things and expanding our options for choosing by showing us things we couldn’t see before. It often comes in what may seem like a completely unrelated manner as a single step, which when taken, forms into a greater process as a whole idea where you don’t know what to do to make it happen.

Often ideas come to us in “whole form” as an outcome or complete idea as a reality, that’s very different from our current reality, or that we don’t have established behaviors for creating, where we’re often left with a feeling of not knowing what to do to create it. The Higher Self understands that the lower mind is memory driven and needs guidance as a “process” anytime it’s acting to create something that’s not a part of its programming. Because of this, the idea we set as an intention for our inquiry that forms the basis for asking for guidance, serves as the “whole idea” as a form of “theme” or metaphor that’s responded to. Not as giving the reality of the idea in a kind of instant fashion, which is a product of the subconscious imagination, but rather as the process for creating it in a synchronistic, step-by-step process that leads you systematically to produce the necessary process to create a corresponding reality of your imagined idea.

       The reason you “don’t know how to do it” is because you’ve never produced that reality and don’t have the memory as the process necessary for creating it. Again, the Higher Self doesn’t act to give you the idea for creating necessarily (you form this as what you’re asking for), but rather gives you the process for doing it as mental impressions and ideas that require you to act on them in order for the next step to become apparent. One step fulfilled leads to the next. It requires consistent action on every idea that becomes apparent through the original action to create the reality necessary as the means of connecting to and being in the appropriate position to perceive the next step.

Ideas come about and manifest as reality through a dynamic pathway as a creative process of unfolding awareness, where we never know for sure what each step will bring. In this manner, we have to act out of faith knowing that though we’re not sure of how it’s going to come about, and that it’s probably going to come about in a completely unexpected way, that it’s revealing the creative process necessary to manifest the reality of our dream. It’s showing us how to create the reality that we asked and prayed for by setting an intention for it. The saying “seek and you shall find, ask and it shall be given unto you, knock and the door will be opened”, isn’t just a nice saying, it’s giving us the formula as principles necessary for manifesting reality using our mind. Not the lower mind of instinct and repetitive memory, but rather the higher mind that serves to seed the imagination of the lower mind with the ideas necessary to willfully create in an original manner.

The higher consciousness projects ideas into the imagination of the subconscious that provide it with a reality as a form of memory that it can use as a template to create with in the same manner it creates realities out of its own memories. Once the subconscious has been impregnated with an idea of the Higher Will as an imaginary reality, the conscious mind perceives it as a thought and idea, and uses its will to choose and act on it. As it acts on the idea to fulfill it or investigate and research it somehow, a reality is produced where other ideas become apparent, and when those are again acted on, a chain of association forms that connects us to the other related ideas, which together form the basis for creating the reality of our desired intention.

So if you “ask” by forming a vision for your life, sets intentions, and pray or ask for guidance in regards to them, or for them to spontaneously manifest somehow, and you sit back waiting for it to appear as if by magic, or come as a single connection that’s completely related to your current mindset or history of creating realities, you may be waiting for a long time for something that never happens. If instead, you stay aware of what intention you set and what reality you’ve asked for, and as ideas that are not self-generated by your logical and analytical mind, or out of repeated memory that begins occurring as intuitive insights or notions of some sort, and you commit to acting on them even though you have no idea what they’re going to produce or where they’ll lead, and as they lead to another idea and another, and you continue acting on each one, even when they lead you outside of your comfort zone, what you’ll find is that you’re led into a reality of your own intention as you being its creator. You’ll realize that you created it through consistent action taken on what may have seemed like unrelated ideas. By setting the intention as a means for willful and deliberate creation, then having faith and trust in where you’re being led even though you can’t see from the onset what it’s eventually going to result in, is the very means and method by which you create using your Higher Will as a true form of spiritual guidance.

The Triune Nature of the Soul – How the Divine Soul can use the Lower Soul as a Vehicle and Instrument for Self-Development

The idea of “what the soul is” can be very confusing because most try to comprehend it from a purely materialistic form. Yet the soul itself, is not material in nature, though it’s the subtle field of energy that acts to create not only the material body in which it then inhabits, but also creates the entire material realm of what we call “reality” while in a physical body. All of the material reality as various separate forms that together comprise a larger unified form as a cohesive and coherent reality is accompanied by a field of subtle energy that acts to “in-form” it, and animates it through various creative processes and behaviors as the expression of certain attributes, qualities, and characteristics. This subtle field of holographic (structured) information that accompanies every physical form, is invisible in nature as what we call the “mind” or intelligence of the organism, and is what acts to give it life as an “entity” of some kind. This “intelligent field” is comprised of certain types of information as memory, and is what acts to sequence the DNA of the material body generating a physical form as its equivalent correspondence on a denser plane. All of what we call “reality” exists as multiple planes that act as correlating parallel dimensions that form a gradient scale that move from subtle to dense levels within the same frequency as a larger scale.

In all major spiritual traditions the idea of the soul is described in a similar manner through the concept of the Holy Trinity, the Monad of Sacred Geometry, or the primal Law of Three-in-One. This threefold nature of the soul is the basis for all analogies describing the threefold nature of the mind and the individual produced by the mind. In all spiritual traditions the soul and mind are considered the same thing, although the mind can also be seen as the vehicle or instrument of the soul. It’s only in modern times that we’ve attempted to explain everything from a material basis as being “causal in nature” while presenting the mind as being something that the brain (body) gives rise to and is somehow mysteriously capable of producing. Whenever we look at stuff through a purely material perspective we take an attitude of separating everything into parts, and creating a whole out of the parts, which in reality are unified in nature and a part of the same thing (holographic). The entire material world exists as a unification and expression of the spiritual realm of pure energy and consciousness, which acts to provide the intelligent matrix as a substratum out of which it arises and is animated through a form of mass consciousness.

The Psyche

The soul is described in most traditions as an “individual entity” that’s distinct and a part from the body, and is what serves to organize, form, and give life to the body. It produces life through the “Principle of Life” that operates as vibration that we experience as feelings, emotions, thoughts, and activity. It’s described as the incorporeal essence of a living sentient being – capable of feeling, sensing, perceiving, and experiencing. The soul is often described as the “psyche” or the mind as the place where our thoughts come from. The soul and the butterfly were given the same name in ancient traditions, which is the center of thought, feeling, and motivation, consciously and unconsciously directing the body’s reaction to its physical and social environment. Psychology, a field of science that studies the mind, soul, and spirit, is derived from the Greek term of “Psyche” used to describe the soul.

Modern day psychology is a science of mind and behavior, which has unfortunately begun moving towards eliminating the very source of its own study as a means of following suite with other material sciences in order to be accepted as a valid and credible field of science. Many other traditions become much more lucid with the soul being equivalent to “breath” or “air” (atmosphere in which life exists) in the Elements as the combination of Fire (will) and Water (feeling) as an invisible power that animates the material world through a form of Divine Inspiration, which comes through a Divine Voice as the “Word of God”, Spirit, or Holy Ghost. The essence that underlies our existence as the third person in the Trinity referred to as the Holy Ghost, is the Etheric Body (phantom-like hologram) as the psyche in form that provides the blueprint for organizing and producing the physical body as an exact replica or double.

For practical purposes we can create a “model” of the threefold nature of the soul-mind in order to gain an understanding of how it operates, which is necessary in order to consciously utilize it to create. While we commonly hear sayings like “we’re not a body having a soul experience, we’re a soul having a body experience”, many don’t know what this means in the most basic sense of actually experiencing it that way, or, more importantly, what it means to be a “soul within a body”. This is largely due to the fact that while we have a tendency to continuously separate them, the body is an aspect of and produced by the Higher Soul as it’s material equivalent that serves as a temple, vehicle, and instrument for the Higher Soul to create within the lower and denser material plane. In order to “work” (create) within a given plane, you have to create and exist within the conditions of that plane and work by way of the laws that govern it. The true soul exists on several planes above the physical plane, and has to undergo a transformative process as multiple stages of a step-down process of transduction in order to fully manifest as a body within the material plane. The highest level of the soul, which exists on an entirely different plane, is usually referred to as the Higher Self or God, and the “middle soul” which acts as a medium between the higher and the lower is the human soul of our individuality, and the lower soul is the etheric body that forms the physical body as a member of the collective unconscious of the animal kingdom.

The mind, without a physical body, doesn’t fully exist within the material plane as an actual entity capable of taking action and creating in a deliberate manner, and instead can only act to “influence” other minds within physical forms. In order to exist and create within the lower, denser realms, the Higher Soul of pure energy must fashion and inhabit or energetically bond with a body. It must take on a physical form that’s of the same nature and likeness (frequency) as it is. It acts to bond with the DNA that’s of the “same potential” as it is in terms of memory that will naturally produce certain types of experiences as the means of self-expression and self-creation. The lower soul of the etheric/physical body possesses the same “mind” of the middle (higher) soul in its dual components, and shares the same type of personality, identity, and karma as the genetic makeup and ancestral heredity (memories of our ancestors) of the body.

The Higher Soul, which is commonly called the “Higher Self”, never fully manifests within the material plane of form, but rather projects into it by taking on dual aspects necessary for producing both a visible and invisible component of the same thing. The mind first aligns with (resonates) and merges into (sympathetic induction) the DNA of an equivalent nature (same frequency) and kind, infusing it with the life-force energy that sequences and formulates it with a self-organizing mechanism inherent in vibration itself as a holographic model (etheric body) or paradigm (field of information organized into a thematic pattern).

The Lower Soul of the Subconscious Mind

The soul, like the DNA of the body is comprised of “memory” as the information that “in-forms it” and gives it the qualities, characteristics, temperament, disposition, and tendencies it naturally exhibits as normal perceptions and behaviors. The body’s DNA carries with it the memory of ancestors that are aligned with the same nature as the Higher Soul, which is what caused the soul to resonate with it. The Higher Soul forms energetic sympathy with the same “type of soul” in the lower realms. In the lower, material realm, the soul exists as the subconscious aspect of the mind that we share with all of the animal kingdom that has a sentient nature, and thinks and acts from a purely unconscious state as instinctual behaviors.

The lower soul of the body operates strictly out of memory of various sorts that provides it with the means for producing more of the same type of behaviors produced out of the same type of perceptions. For human beings this comes as a form of “tribal mentality” where we exist purely as a part of a greater whole of shared consciousness that has no individuality apart from the tribe. When living out of our lower nature, equivalent to that of an animal, we’re shaped purely through our conditioning and whatever perceptual models and behaviors we’ve been trained to by participating in them. When living out of a predominately unconscious state, we simply live out of the past as a means of perceiving and interpreting the present to mean the same thing as the past, and forming the same responses and behaviors, creating the future to be of the same nature as the past. In this sense we become identified with our body and lower nature, and fail to realize our true identity as a higher, divine being with creative abilities, and never learn how to use our conscious mind and ability to think, reason, and decide for ourselves. When this happens, we fall into a primary state of unawareness, become totally identified with our past conditioning and our physical existence, and lose contact with our Higher-Self as our true identity and ultimate potential, and we become lost in what is in reality an illusion of our own making.

When we come to realize instead that there is a higher aspect of ourselves, of our mind and soul, and learn to quit identifying with our past by continuing to live out the story we created out of it in the present as the means creating our reality and “sense of ourselves” as fully identified with our body and life circumstances, we can begin to realize that the body as the subconscious mind, is the “creative powerhouse” of the material plane and can be used skillfully to create in an intentional and deliberate manner. If we simply detach from our identification with it and the past, and observe how we can use our mind to create our reality, we can learn how to use it in a like manner to create in a deliberate and precise way. We can come to realize that we don’t have to keep dwelling in the past as a means of experiencing the present by playing the same group of memories over and over in our mind, and we begin consciously choosing “how we want to be” instead by recognizing our true nature. We can let go of our attachments to the past and our beliefs about things and remain fully aware instead, and in that awareness decide in every moment what we choose to create as a true expression of who we actually are. We can decide what kind of story we want to tell and what kind of person we’ll become as a result of that story.

Conscious Self-Creation and Destiny

In order to create anything in a conscious manner you have to first form a clear idea of what it is you’re creating. You have to do a form of “soul searching” where you begin to sense who you really are and who you want to become. We’re all born with a “story” imprinted within us as the dream for our life. This story requires certain aspects of us as qualities and characteristics to be actively employed in order to “tell” it by living it. The Higher Soul comes into the physical world in order to create itself through a developmental process of growth and self-expression. Whatever memories we’ve accumulated up to this point merely act as the foundation for continued growth. Some potential is active and fully expressing, while others remain dormant and are not being actively utilized or developed. Our dream as the story we’re imprinted with at the soul level (human/middle soul) that we came here to tell, requires us to transform what qualities and aspects of ourselves are active and which ones are passive.

Often, in order to obtain our dream and bring into active expression latent aspects of ourselves requires us to move into and resolve some of our greatest fears. These fears are what have prevented us from actively moving forward in our life pursuing our dream, and have kept us from becoming empowered in our own process of self-creation. All of our limitations that aren’t “actual” are the result of a fear that we’ve built a belief around as a story we tell ourselves about why we can’t do something. When we embody a sense of courage and employ a more neutral and open mindset, and we decide to move ahead in spite of our fears, the fears themselves steadily dissolve and we come to realize there was never really anything to fear. It was all something we made up in our imagination that was only acting to hold us back.

Creating your Ideal – your Soul’s Highest Potential

The first step to conscious self-creation by embodying your true identity as the creator of your own reality, is to develop a well-defined idea of yourself as your “ideal self”. This is where you create yourself according to your highest potential, and to be the best person you can be. Where you choose to actively employ your best traits, utilize your gifts and talents, and decide with detailed accuracy the type of story you’re going to tell by how you live your life. You create a model as a moral code of conduct that you hold yourself to in making all of your moment by moment decisions. You decide which qualities you want to develop into strengths and use to express and create, and you do so in an intentional manner as a daily practice. You constantly review this ideal, concentrate on it, imagine yourself being that way in different situations as a form of “mental rehearsal”, and actively practice “being that way” in a constant and consistent fashion. Like all creation which comes from habitual behaviors and perceptions, you have to practice something for an extended period of time until it becomes a natural part of you that’s automatic in nature.

Knowing that the subconscious mind works out of memory as an experience of reality as the basis for creating more realities that produce more of the same type of experiences, we know that the way to provide it with a new template for creating is to create the desired trait or reality as an “imagined experience”. It’s not about intellectually conceptualizing an idea in a theoretical and detached manner as a form of command or order, but rather creating it as an actual experience with full sensory enhancement and intense feelings, and with emotions that make it very desirable and compelling. You create it in your mind “as if it’s happening” and you’re “in the experience of it”, having it. You have to convert all ideas you want to manifest into the language of the subconscious, which is memory as an actual experience that has strong emotions connected to it.

We say in psychology that you can “only do what you can first imagine or see yourself doing”. This is because it’s the subconscious mind that does the “doing”. Anytime you want to create an experience of reality that doesn’t already exist, you have to first create it as an imaginary experience, feel and sense yourself “in it” doing it. You have to set the stage as the necessary conditions and possible set of circumstances in which it would naturally occur, and then create the experience just like you want it to go in your mind’s eye, while forming sensory awareness of it in very well-defined terms. Place yourself in the ideal situation then direct and develop it by asking . . . what are you seeing? Hearing? What are you feeling or touching? Smelling? Tasting? And what are you telling yourself about it? Create it in a way that stimulates and produces very positive emotions. Then dwell heavily in the feeling-emotional aspect of it, amplifying it to make it intense (calibrate yourself to that vibration). This sets the frequency as a thematic pattern in our mind that acts also to organize the outer environment into the same pattern. Whatever we vibrate we not only connect to in our environment, but we actually act to orchestrate and recompose our environment according to the same pattern as a larger theme necessary for the event to naturally take place.

The subconscious mind is motivated by pleasure and pain. It moves into and towards pleasure, seeking it out, and out of and away from pain, avoiding it at all costs. You have to always remove any sense of pain or conflict around an idea in order to use the subconscious to deliberately create it. If you associate pain of any kind to an idea, you’ll be acting to repel it instead of attracting it. As you imagine the idea and develop it in sensory terms while feeling very positive emotions because of the experience, play it over and over in your mind until you can recall it instantly in its complete form, just like an actual memory. Concentrate your attention on it in a redundant, daydreaming fashion just like you do other memories. Then create more imaginary experiences of the same idea, playing them over and over until they can be recollected in their whole-form instantly, and play it out in your mind in a habitual and automatic fashion like your normal memories do.

All realities as sensory experience formed into a memory, produce their own electromagnetic field as a vibratory frequency. All vibratory frequencies as an electromagnetic field has a self-organizing mechanism that organizes matter into patterns through a process of activating and deactivating certain properties, forming a new pattern, and through attraction and repulsion. This basic law of vibration works on all scales and levels existence, whether in making a single entity, scenario, or creating a greater reality. As we think by replaying memories, we keep ourselves tuned to the frequency of those thoughts, forming a gravitational field between us and the outer elements of the same type of reality. Our imagined thoughts as memories of some form become a self-fulfilling prophecy. Thoughts formed into ideas as possible realities are the creative power of the mind to shape matter. In this way the Higher Soul of the human (self-conscious) mind, instead of identifying itself “as” the lower mind, and creating unconsciously through a form of instinct and conditioning, can learn how to utilize the lower subconscious mind to create itself in an intentional and deliberate manner and impose a direction on its destiny by evolving itself to a higher level of consciousness.

The Initiate and the Principle for Ascension – Qualities, Higher Capacities, and Faculties of an Initiate

While the idea of ascension to what we call “higher dimensions” (those of the Heavenly realm) is a term used quite loosely and somewhat frivolously in our new age society, it has been the goal and devoted life path of the Initiate since antiquity. This is the original idea around the priesthood of all Spiritual Sciences before it became corrupted, laid to ruins, and ultimately lost to the vulgar and profane. The reason the Magical Sciences reside in what we commonly think of as secrecy and mystery, is because, in their most fundamental form they’re incomprehensible and unattainable to the untutored, and even when discovered in what could be considered a comprehensible format, they’re often grossly misinterpreted, robbing them of any actual value, and therefore misused in the most basic sense. Magical Sciences are written and pictured in symbolic terms that require an in-depth working knowledge of several major scientific systems in order to be interpreted correctly. This provides a kind of fail-safe system for preventing the information from getting in the wrong hands, and customizes the knowledge to the individual discerning it, making it ideal for their growth and intended application. All knowledge of the Spiritual Sciences is a “living creative force” that exists in a primarily potential state, forever morphing and evolving, and like the laws that comprise it, is interpreted in a unique way each time it’s comprehended and utilized by an individual to create within their own life somehow. The only Absolute Truth in Spiritual Sciences is the Universal Laws themselves, which while steadfast and unchanging, are creative in nature, and each time utilized form a unique variation as a material manifestation. The other aspect of this Sacred Knowledge that makes it largely unattainable by the profane is that it requires a “vessel” that’s of a well-developed mental, emotional, physical, and moral state. Knowledge, like all things, exists as a frequency that can only be “drawn in”, absorbed and integrated by what’s of the same frequency. We can only truly “perceive” and therefore grasp and comprehend in everything else what’s of the same nature and pattern as we are in terms of our mental “paradigm”. Our paradigm is the energetic structure of our mind (electromagnetic energy field of information as coherent memory) that not only “informs us” and makes up our constitution, but is also the “lens we look through” in order to comprehend the outside world to be of the same nature as we are. In order to act as a recipient of higher knowledge or information, we have to develop ourselves to be of a higher nature also, possessing the same qualities and traits, in order to act as an appropriate and equivalent channel for that “type” of information to flow into, rise up in our imagination as our own thoughts, providing us with a template of a potential reality that forms the basis for all of our behaviors as a primary form of self-expression and our natural way of being. The path of Initiation is not for the fainthearted or those looking for an easy way out or to somehow use it in terms of the archetype it represents as a way of embellishing their ego and enhancing a glorified self-image. Many think of it as a sort of romantic idea of valor, honor, and adventure into the unknown, which of course it is, yet the true reality of it is that you’re constantly being pushed past your perceived limitations and unconscious programming in every moment of your everyday life. It’s not an exercise program you do for 10 minutes, 3 times a day, and no one watches over you to make sure you do it and stay on task. It requires extreme forms of discipline in every area of your life in order to detach from all material forms of gratification, and create yourself as a neutral vehicle within the material realm that can’t be influence, affected, or altered by it. We live in a society that’s bred and conditioned to be weak-willed, spoiled to mindless and impulsive addictions that offer the illusion of security and physical comfort as convenient pleasure of some kind that will medicate your problems, hopefully making them bearable, and the constant distraction of passive and meaningless entertainment that keeps us focused on things that don’t matter, where everything has to be delivered to us as “The 7 Easy Steps to . . . ”, where a kind of laundry list is given that sends the message “anyone can do this because it’s not hard”. Something that’s hard and requiring effort, self-sacrifice, or loss of some kind is to be avoided at all cost. You can’t “sell” hard, and there’s no money to be made if you can’t sell something to eager consumers who are looking to simply pass time by entertaining theory that allows them to contemplate and pretend while never actually engaging or doing. We are conditioned to the idea of “easy solutions” to what amounts to a global crisis in consciousness when the reality is . . . it’ll be the hardest thing you ever do, and it will push you past every fear and limitation neatly secured and held in place by your comfort zone that you currently protect, defend and preserve passionately with the very nature of your thoughts, perceptions, and emotional tendencies. It’ll cause you to live your life on the edge of a precipice that resembles a bottomless pit, where you’re frantically clinging to security while being overwhelmed with a terrifying feeling you have no words to describe, taken back and somewhat stricken by an awkward and somewhat unexpected experience where you encounter parts of yourselves previously unknown that can overwhelm and consume you in the most ordinary moments of your everyday life. It changes your orientation from an outward focus and awareness to an inward one. Your awareness of the true nature of things takes on a heightened and pronounced sense that leads you into deeper worlds that previously existed only as a vague impression and alluring mystery that was unknown and unrealized. A magical world that once you tune into it and begin engaging by becoming one with it, like a lover, its intimacy magnetic and alluring, draws you forever into it with a sense of fascination, wonder and awe. You enter into a kind of magical current that flows along in an effortless manner where you lose all sense of yourself as being apart from it. Once enthralled in the deep sense of inner-connectedness and intimate love, enveloped by an all-pervading sense of peace and inner calm, a kind of contentment pervades us and we vow complete and utter devotion to it. We form a bond that becomes our very source and substance, the inner-well that we draw on to nourish our soul and carry us through the most trying of moments. We are never again alone, never forsaken or abandoned; we form a partnership with a higher part of ourselves in order to redeem ourselves of the consequences we drawn upon us by incorrect perceptions, distorted thinking, bad decisions, and destructive deeds born out of ignorance, so we can clean up our mess and eventually go home. All of life is an arduous journey back to our origins as divine beings that are of a compassionate and loving nature, no longer vested in immoral illusions of worldly events and dramatic delusions being played out in a blind and uninhibited manner by those infected with the insanity of lust, greed, and power.  A realization of our true nature, detaching from the false illusion of our material identity, and resuming our place in the grand scheme of things as spiritual leaders of a universal sovereignty, which through mastery of the elements, work only in every situation for the benefit of all involved, uncorrupt and untainted by a personal agenda designed to meet a material need.   Understanding, Honoring, and Properly Utilizing the Power of Words The first and most pervasive idea that needs to be fully embodied through a deep sense of realization as to its actual importance is the power of the spoken word. Words are spoken both inwardly as our very thoughts, and outwardly as our speech and acts as a form of invocation that stimulates and plants the seed of the thought in other people’s minds so that the reality they naturally invoke in the imagination become a form of joint creation. The saying “I think therefore I am” may be more accurately stated as “As I think I become the reality of my thoughts”. We self-create by way of our own thinking by calling forth (forming a perception of) the reality of our thoughts that we then use to create an experience of ourselves in relationship to our own creation. The “word” is creative because it calls forth in the imagination the image, form, and reality as the meaning of the word. The reality we form in our mind’s eye becomes the perceptual lens as a filtering system we “look through” in order the reshape the outer reality to mean the same thing as a correlation to the inner reality. All actions of what we call “spirit” is creative in nature, and creates through will as speaking the words that shape the internal image of the form inherent in the words that becomes the template as a lens for producing the material equivalent as a perception of it. Because of this feature, words, spoken first inwardly, then outwardly are a form of self-fulfilling prophecy. What we talk about and profess as being the nature of our reality, meaning our experience of things, is exercising our creative power to produce the experience of our thoughts in whatever set of circumstances and conditions we find ourselves in by the story we tell ourselves and others about them. Intelligence, in its most primary state, is revelation and prophecy. “Being” is the principle, speech is its means, and the expression, development, and perfection of Being is the end result. To speak and imagine is to literally create as a willful act. The secret of the “will” lies in the imagination. Thought as spoken words, when shaped in the imagination, casts and projects the image or reality as the meaning of the words into the “astral light” of the material plane of substance. This is the “substance” as “light essence” that the mind organizes into forms in the imagination. Any form that’s organized repetitively in a systematic way due to strong emotions being associated with it (astral plane is governed by the forces of emotion), forms into a permanent archetype as a memory that attracts, absorbs, and emanates and electromagnetic field as the “etheric body” of the form. The etheric body is comprised of a phantom-like liquid light that forms a hologram of the image and has a “self-organizing mechanism” inherent in it that attracts the elements of its fulfillment (can be used to structure it) from the immediate environment, organizing them into a greater reality of the same meaning and likeness that will generate more of the same “feelings and emotions” that produced it. This is the self-perpetuating aspect of vibration that’s infinite. All outer reality is produced by the same pattern as the internal one being played out on a greater scale and level of complexity that serves to generate experiences of the same meaning and nature. It’s the meaning inherent in all of our experiences that’s the “creative component” as a common denominator. All “meaning” is the “personal aspect” of experience as our creative ability in (re)shaping the outer world. Every event that multiple people partake in, will have a different meaning for each one, and will shape how they each “experience” the event as a result. Meaning creates on 3 levels simultaneously and forms the basis as the theme for all of our stories. The meaning we give something, means something about the way other people are, the way the world is in general, and about us in relationship with it (and the creator of it). Whatever we form in our imagination as a cohesive part of our ongoing story and “type” of reality we act to naturally give rise to through our mental model, we cast into the astral light, and literally “request” as a form of prayer (imagined thought), which provides the “attraction factor” for magnetizing us to more of the same type of realities that will give us more of the same type of feelings. Once we gain a deep realization and firm understanding of the truth and power of our own thoughts and what we outwardly speak, we have the tools and means to begin taking full responsibility for our life and self-creation by becoming aware of our own internal dialogue and the story we’re always in the process of telling ourselves about things that create our experience of them. This has historically been achieved through extended periods of silence where you resisted the urge to speak habitually in a thoughtless and meaningless manner, and self-reflected instead on your own unconscious motives and tendencies. The majority of our thoughts and behaviors run in an automatic fashion and are produced in a completely unconscious manner making us thoughtless and reckless creators within our own life. They’re unconscious, not in the sense that we don’t know what we’re saying or doing, but in the sense that we have no idea of what we’re actually doing in terms of “creating by way of our thoughts”. We mistakenly believe that our thoughts are describing our experience and what has happened to us in our life in an objective and factual manner, when in reality, they are the very means for how we’re producing those experiences through our perception and interpretation of them to form our story about them. So one of the first principles that we have to master, is the ability to control and determine our own thoughts. We have to learn how to honor the power of words and begin thinking and speaking in a mindful and deliberate manner. We can learn to utilize the creative ability of thoughts that are imagined vividly coupled with intense emotions that make them very compelling, as the means of producing the reality of those thoughts. Through a form of intentional thinking and reasoning, we can create our experiences of reality as an interpretation that provides us with the memories that we use to shape ourselves in an intentional manner. By self-reflecting on our habitual thoughts we can become aware of what exists and has life within us as unconscious aspects of ourselves, and through the awareness and realization it brings, we can resolve them so they’re no longer active and creative in us.   Instinct – Passion and Prejudice The lower plane of the material world consists of Astral Light which is a magnetic fluid that we experience as emotions and passions of various sorts, which are very compelling and grip us with a form of intensity that makes them hard to resist. This is the plane of “instinct” that governs the entire natural world through emotional reactions that produce impulsive and automatic behaviors without a thought-process being involved or required. Man, being both animal (body) and Divine (higher mind), is affected and deeply influenced by emotions, while simultaneously having the ability to think and perceive in a reasonable and rational manner. By utilizing the higher capacities of our mind we can willfully create in an intentional manner by taking hold of and directing our own thoughts and behavior. Emotion, which is the language and motivating force of the material plane, is necessary in order to produce action of some sort. Thought as an idea in its potential (unformed) state, propagates from the higher plane of pure energy as invisible forces into the upper regions of the lower plane, casting its image into the light, impregnating it with the seed necessary to produce the “form of the idea” as an etheric shell that spirit as life-force can then inhabit in order to bring it to life. This life-force energy is the active force of the material plane experienced as sensation, arousal, and stimulation that produces emotional states of some sort that compel us into action as natural behaviors inherent in the emotions themselves. Whatever the emotion causes us to feel and imagine inwardly, whether pleasure or pain, expresses as the reality of the emotion by controlling our thoughts, and produces the outward correspondence of our imagined thoughts and serves to “give us” more of the same feeling. If the reality is pleasurable and therefore desirable, it has a seductive quality that’s very luring and enticing, and causes us to think and imagine pleasurable experiences as the means of acquiring it. If the reality is painful, it invokes a deep sense of fear and defensiveness, which is equally gripping and serves to control the imagination to form the reality it implies as the experience of it. All emotional reactions whether good or bad in terms of why we’re reacting, are passionate in nature and act to control us in the most basic sense of governing and determining our thoughts and what we lend our will to through the mere act of entertaining them. To be “passionless” is equivalent to being emotionless, in the sense of not being controlled by emotional states or the emotions constantly being projected at us by others as a means of using their will to gain control of ours. When we’re expressing passions of some form, we’re literally being controlled by the emotional state of that passion. Whenever we “react” to something, we’re being influenced and controlled by it. That’s what a reaction is. We can only exercise “control over” what doesn’t “control us”. If we’re constantly being controlled by emotional states of some sort, then we have no ability to maintain control over ourselves, and we are NOT an appropriate vessel for higher powers to operate through in a neutral and unbiased manner. Emotions distort and corrupt our thinking forming the basis of our perception of reality as a delusion of our own making, rather than as the perception of truth unmoved by animal instinct. When we reside largely in a reactive state produced by our emotions, we act without conscious and willful (deliberate) thought, and lend our will instead to whatever it is we’re reacting to. Any time we’re reacting we’re being controlled by the will of another or by an idea. All emotions are connected to our instinctual states and produce the illusion of the emotion as an imagined reality that’s used in place of the actual reality that acts to invoke automatic behavior in a knee-jerk and impulsive fashion. As an Initiate, we can’t be enslaved by passions, worldly prejudices, and our own opinions. An Adept is a person who is fully self-created and achieved by active use of the will and the deeds that issue forth from will as the manifestation of will. Through this practice we employ our God-given ability to self-create by masterful use of our own mind to govern and direct the subconscious mind of the body which is always living out of memory of various sorts activated by the emotions associated with the memories that provide it with programs for producing automatic perceptions and behaviors that don’t require thought, active choice, or will to create in an intentional manner. We have to employ our higher creative capacities in order to become “God-like” and able to truly create within the material world rather than acting mindlessly to be created by it. The Four Indispensable Conditions of the Magi The main goal of the soul within the material world is to transcend it through willful acts of self-creation that ultimately master the Elements governing it. The soul is formed out of memory acquired through its own creative ability to manifest realities as a means of acquiring experiences of itself by way of its own creation. The Elements of the material plane, as we have already discussed, are primarily known as the natural forces that produce sensation, feelings, and emotions as an inner stimulus that causes the material reality inherent in that feeling as a seeded thought to rise up in the imagination where its shaped by astral light as a ghost-like substance into the reality of the feeling sensation that expresses it while simultaneously giving us more of the same feelings. The power of the Elemental world is to create experiences that become the basis for the souls “memory”, which shapes it in terms of its constitution, character, and identity, determining its evolution to higher or lower forms of expression. We can only master the material world through an in-depth knowledge of the natural forces that govern and operate within it, a sense of fearlessness produced through the knowledge obtained, the ability to willfully direct it using our own mind, and the faith as a form of patience necessary to allow the time necessary for manifestation. What’s referred to as the “devil” or the “evil forces” of the material plane is the magnetic fluid that influences us through passions, emotions, and desire of some form. All of which are an attempt to “lead us into temptation” by surrendering our will with the promise of worldly delights and sensuous pleasures and allow ourselves to be shaped and determined by instinctual forces of the animal kingdom. Whatever we become like in thought, feelings, and behaviors, we bond our soul to in terms of the equivalent frequency, level and quality of consciousness, and morality. If we allow ourselves to be driven and controlled by instinctual passions and tendencies, then we equate ourselves with animals and become “animal-like” in nature. We forfeit our ability to decide what we allow into us to take hold and rise up in us as our reality, and we become determined by primal forces that feed off of our will while condemning our soul to a mortal life. To ascend to higher planes of consciousness, four conditions have to be created: intelligence that’s illuminated by constant study (expanding and growing our ability to comprehend higher truths); a fearlessness that nothing can check (we’re not controlled by fear); a cast iron will that can’t be broken or negotiated away (determination and perseverance); and a prudence (purity) which nothing can corrupt or intoxicate. In the world of the Magi, this is known as the credo which is stated as: To know, to dare, to will, and to keep silent. These are inscribed in the four symbolic forms of the sphinx traditionally represented by the man, eagle, lion, and the bull, and also by the four Elements of water, air, fire, and earth. Through devoted study of spiritual sciences we acquire knowledge of the three worlds which provide us with the tools and means necessary to transcend it by gaining control over it through the virtue of our mind. It’s always a question of who’s doing the controlling. Are we controlling ourselves, or are we being controlled by another or an outside force? Self-Knowledge and Realization Knowing one’s self is the center, foundation, and first step in the application of spiritual knowledge to self-create. True self-knowledge comes through the realization that in every moment of our lives we are the one solely responsible for creating ourselves by way of creating our experiences of the outer world. While we can’t control what happens to us (necessarily) we can absolutely control how we choose to perceive it, what we focus on, what we tell ourselves about it that makes it mean something, and how we behave or respond as a result. As long as we are blown from one shore to another and jerked around like a puppet on a string, always in the midst of an emotional reaction, a delusion that robs us of our dignity by way of insanity, cleaving desperately to the identity we achieve through the thoughts and opinions of others laid down before us to blindly accept as truth, we are changeable, and through the Principle of Supreme Reason, become mortal. To cleave invariably to reason, making ourselves unchangeable by the material forces and the will of others, we become independent of the forces that make use of our own will to change us, and become self-determined instead. We learn how to suffer with dignity, make self-sacrifices that ultimately serve our higher good, to refrain from all temptation designed to lead astray, and to die to what’s no longer a part of us. These are the secrets which when mastered, place us well beyond the reach of affliction, desires of the flesh, and of the fear of annihilation that comes from buying into a mortal existence. We become the master of mindless brutes as the instinctual forces of nature, not by fighting against them or arguing to justify their existence, but by subduing and taming them, otherwise we become a victim to them and serve as their slave. The material world as we know it has been laid out before us as a battlefield where depression and inertia struggles with justice and freedom in opposition of the active force. We can only reign over what we have first conquered in ourselves. Only those who have conquered and resolved the love of pleasure can truly know the pleasure of love. To know yourself is to remain centered within your truth in even the most challenging of moments. It’s to be able to stand in opposition of those trying to overcome you by introducing self-doubt in order to gain control of your will. We can always know the true nature of others and the events of our life by what they serve to activate within us in relation and response to them, and call forth as an interaction. To be fearless is to not be affected by the subliminal methods used by others to introduce fear as a means of gaining control of your will. The easiest way to subdue and coerce is through tactics that cause fearful thoughts, or cause us to doubt ourselves in some way. Those who are well-studied and developed through daily practices are able to sense the nature and intention of the motive forces being projected and utilized, and respond to them as they are rather than through the illusion they pose under. To sense the truth through knowledge of the laws governing all of reality, is true power. To work through self-knowledge is to always be in control of yourself with a clear mind and the knowledge of truth in every situation. It’s to never give up control of yourself to another or external forces of some kind, and to never lend your will to someone else, allowing them to control and determine you. It’s to constantly maintain a sense of sovereignty over yourself.  Self-knowledge and self-creation is the foundation of truth and wisdom and forms the basis out of which everything else comes. As creative and willful beings, we are the sole creators of ourselves and our world. Our mental paradigm forms our perception of the world and what appears “real to us”. When we truly know ourselves and always operate out of that self-awareness, we are truly incapable of being influenced and “changed” by the others and the material world, and as a result we step back into our true identity as eternal and immortal beings.
