How we unknowingly create the Reality of our Beliefs as Delusions

There’s an interesting thing about beliefs that make them hard to realize as not being true. Anything that we belief to be true, and therefore real, we create through our ability to “see it” in any situation. We see it not as an actual reality in and of itself, but as an “interpretation” of reality. A belief is usually formed as an interpretation of reality rather than an objective observation of an actual event. We can have difficulty understanding the power of belief in forming our reality because we don’t understand that what we call “reality” is formed as our “perception”, and it’s our “mind” that producing our perception. The subconscious aspect of our mind is what serves to shape all of our outer perceptions of reality to match our inner perceptions by “what we tell ourselves” about something. Because our outer reality is produced by our subconscious in an automatic fashion (unconsciously), we lack “direct awareness” of the fact that we’re actually the “one” telling our subconscious what to produce through our very “thoughts”.

If we look at the true nature of how a belief is constructed we can gain awareness around how it is that we’re creating our reality with our thoughts and intention. A belief doesn’t originate as an objective observation of reality that exists independent of us, but results rather from the “meaning” we give things by what we tell ourselves about them. Most people don’t realize that our internal dialogue as our thought processes is how we use “one aspect” of our mind to communicate with and direct the creative process of “another aspect” of our mind. What we consciously think about and picture in our mind as an inner experience of reality is actually directing our subconscious on what to create as a consistent and ongoing outer reality of the same nature and kind.

Another common mistake that results from a lack of self-awareness in understanding our own creative ability to produce our reality, comes by perceiving beliefs as being singular and independent of each other, rather than resulting from a “dynamic system of correlated beliefs”. As children, we have the full capacity of our subconscious mind, while our logical, rational, reasoning mind hasn’t developed yet. It’s the rational and discriminating “thought producing” aspect of our mind that acts as the “gatekeeper” to our subconscious, and has the ability to rationally evaluate and logically analyze ideas in order to “decide” what to “let in and take hold”, and what to reject and keep out. When only the subconscious is dominantly active, we readily take in and internalize whatever we witness happening around us and whatever it is we’re told is true and real. We have no ability to discriminate and simply create the reality of whatever we’re taught. Because we can create any idea as an imaginary experience that makes it seem real, we form a belief around it as being real and therefore true.

It’s our conscious, thinking mind of outer awareness that perceives a world of separation and tells stories about things as being apart from and independent of us, while the subconscious sees everything as connected and related and simply acts to internalize whatever is happening to make it “about us” personally. While in our subconscious, group mind, we imagine that we’re apart of everything that’s happening around us, and that whatever someone says about us is describing us in some way, and we form all of our initial beliefs accordingly. As children we perceive ourselves as being a part of our family unit and intimately connected to our parents. We imagine that their pain and sorrow is somehow our fault or because of us, and that we can change it by changing ourselves. In a similar manner we can have a tendency to believe that we can also make them happy or take away their pain by doing something special or changing how we’re acting.

As children, all of our perceptions stem from our emotions and we form our initial beliefs about ourselves and life in general out of emotional states we acquired from our parents and family dynamics. Whatever they were feeling and outwardly expressing, we feel to, and whatever we hear them saying about us or talking about with others, we take in without discretion and internalize as being a fact. Because we create it internally as an imaginary reality based on feelings, we perceive it as being real and therefore true. We listen to whatever is being said about us and we form a belief around it without questioning it, and it becomes a form of self-fulfilling prophecy. The subconscious isn’t literal like the conscious mind, and creates out of thematic ideas that it uses as metaphors.

If our parent has a tendency to scold us by telling us to “quit acting like an idiot”, we don’t have the evaluation skills to associate it with a particular behavior or act, and instead come to believe that we’re an idiot as a general rule. If our parent is upset and crying, or lashing out in anger, telling us that we ruined their life, we translate that into meaning we’re not loved or wanted, and we begin acting that way as a general theme that carries over into every aspect of our life. Once we internalize an idea and make it into an experience of reality as meaning something about us and about how others see us, it becomes a “core belief” as a primary life theme, which, as we go along we continue to create more experiences of the same kind in different relationships and situations, spawning correlating beliefs of a similar nature.

Our parent(s) not wanting us becomes everybody not wanting us. We develop all of our relationships in a way that results in us being rejected, ridiculed, blamed, disliked, and abandoned in the most basic sense. We then form a belief that everyone, our romantic partner, friends, and co-workers don’t want us, and we not only go into every situation with an attitude, intention, and expectation of not being wanted, we also unconsciously produce the behaviors that cause us to not be wanted. We often display an attitude of treating others in a way that makes them feel unwanted by us, causing them to respond to us in a like manner. The very behavior and reality we expect we also unconsciously produce that causes us to consistently be rejected, ignored, abandoned, or left out in the cold.

Because this is an unconscious process, we usually do it without any real awareness of what or how it is we’re doing it. Then, when the other person or group responds in kind by thinking that we don’t like or want to be around them, we create the experience of “once again” not being loved or wanted. Beliefs are the unconscious formula for consistently producing the reality of the belief that bridges the inner, imagined reality with the outer, actual reality to be of the same nature as a “type of experience”. We can have a tendency to do this our whole life without ever realizing that we’re actually the one doing it to ourselves and others.

The Nature of Core Beliefs

 We all form our core beliefs as our mental model produced in our formative years as our initial conditioning. A core belief is created while we’re in a primarily unconscious state as an imaginary reality produced by the emotion we were feeling at the time we formed it. A belief is a holistic pattern as a “model” used for perceiving that contains every ingredient (emotion, mood, thought, imagined reality, set of behaviors, memories, etc.) necessary to produce the reality of the belief, except for the rational, logical, and reasoning aspect. A core belief is used as the means for providing us with an “instant interpretation” of reality that transforms every objective fact or situation into the reality of the belief, making it difficult for us to realize that we’re the one creating it. Due to the fact that it appears to us as an honest evaluation of what’s actually happening, we can interpret even the most loving and caring behaviors to mean the opposite. When someone openly demonstrates wanting to be with us, we don’t trust it, think they’re lying, and instead of using it as evidence that contradicts and undermines our belief, we reshape it to conform to our belief, and continue to act as if it’s true.

This usually results from the fact that our entire paradigm used for perceiving the world is structured out of our core beliefs as a correlated system that all acts to explain, describe, validate, and justify our beliefs through every aspect of our perception. We usually don’t know how to accept a contradictory idea as possibly being true and create an experience of “being loved and wanted”. We don’t know how to “be” in that situation. We don’t know how to act as if we’re wanted. We’ll literally fight, accuse, and challenge anyone who claims to want us, until it makes them “not want us anymore”. Then we think, “ah ha, I knew it, you were just lying the whole time”, usually without realizing that we were hell-bent on creating it the whole time. We have no model for how to be in a situation where we honestly feel loved and wanted, and so we don’t know how to act.

Likewise, someone who believes they’re an “idiot” or stupid will continuously produce the behaviors that warrant them being called an idiot, because they don’t have a model for “being” smart. For this reason our belief system as our mental paradigm is only transformed through a gradual process of realizing our beliefs and consciously deciding to “question them” by considering contradictory evidence that will ultimately serve to modify them. It’s only through a continuous process of study and self-reflection that we’re able to begin incorporating new information that serves to grow and evolve our current ideas about our self and our life.

We can begin realizing our own unconscious tendencies and correct them through consciously developing new concepts of ourselves, embodying new feelings and qualities, and intentionally employing new ways of being and behaving. As we begin looking at life from a new perspective while intentionally embodying qualities as a new way of being, we can learn how to begin telling a new kind of story about our life. This is something that only we can do for ourselves through self-awareness that brings realization around the creative nature of our mind and our ability to create and transform ourselves. If someone else tries to interject contradictory evidence that discredits our beliefs about our self, we’ll argue to defend them as being true and accurate. And, as the saying goes . . . “whatever we argue to defend is ours to keep”. We have to open our mind in being willing to consider a new possibility for ourselves.

Defining Reality – Objective, Subjective, and the Nature of Illusion

There tends to be a constant form of confusion around the idea of what we call “reality” in the objective sense, and the nature of subjective reality as a personal experience. Whenever the term “illusion” or “delusion” is used, it’s referring to the subjective reality that we all create out of or in place of the objective, neutral and meaningless reality we all share in common. So let’s break these interrelated ideas down by describing and explaining them separately . . . .

Objective Reality

What we refer to as objective reality is the one that we all share in common and exists in a neutral state that’s void of meaning. This is what we can think of as the “unified field of information” that contains all attributes, qualities, archetypes, images, life-forms, and so on, that lays the foundation necessary for creating individual realities that are cohesive and correlated to the overall shared reality. This is the field of possibility that exists before anything is filtered out, abstracted and reformulated by the individual mind. In an outdoor setting we all see and hear the same trees, sky, bushes, flowers, sidewalk, cars, buildings, etc. In an indoor setting we all see the same furnishings, artwork, plants, people, and so on, as the basic elements that make up that environment.

When we share an environment or event, we’re all submerged in and a part of the same group information that’s available to everyone involved as a means of forming our perception and experience of the situation. This can be thought of as the universal, archetypal reality of the collective unconscious or mass consciousness of humanity (and Nature) as the group mind of the earth plane. This is a global reality that’s comprised of common elements.

Subjective Reality

What we refer to as subjective reality is the one that’s naturally created by the individual mind as their perception and how they form their own individual “experience” of the objective reality through an internal process. Our experience of the external world is formed by our mental paradigm as the informational structure of our mind formed out of accumulated memory. Our mental paradigm basically consists of our habitual mood, values, beliefs, preferences, and memories. As we form a “value” of some kind, a mental filter is created and set in place that acts to filter all the information that’s available in any given situation, abstracting and causing to stand out whatever pertains to our value in some way – whether for or against it.

Likewise, as we form a belief about something it sets up a series of mental filters that bring forward in our outer reality only what matches and can be used in a cohesive manner to create the reality of our belief. All other information that doesn’t pertain to our belief recedes and fades into the background where it goes largely unnoticed. We don’t use it in order to create our experience. By way of this natural process of filtering and only using certain parts of the information available in the whole, we act to naturally perceive our beliefs as an actual reality, making them seem real and because of this we don’t realize their beliefs. Preferences as likes and dislikes do the same thing. Filters are created based on preferences that produce a feeling of harmony or discord and become attributes that aid in shaping our experiences.

Our memories serve as a kind of metaphorical filter that we look through that brings to the foreground in an enhanced manner whatever can be used in a situation to create the same type of experience as the memory. Our memories set the basis for all of our intentions and expectations in a situation. Whatever expectation we hold as a preconceived notion forms a predisposition and acts to only select and utilize the information that’s necessary to create what we expected.

Our mind acts as an information processing mechanism that’s always sorting out information and reorganizing it into unique configurations as a means of creating our experiences of any given set of circumstances. Our mental model exists as a kind of “theme” (frequency) that consistently produces the same type of reality that’s unique to us as our own creation. Every personal experience is the expression of one possibility out of an infinite number of possibilities. And every person will form a unique version of reality out of the same overall reality as their perception of it.

Perception, Meaning, and the Nature of Experience

Our perception in any situation is formed by the perceptual filters set into place as the means of sorting through billions of bits of information to abstract only a handful and reconfigure it into a new idea as an “interpretation” of the data selected. The data obtained in any situation is abstract and void of meaning until it’s interpreted. Out of a small amount of selected information we form our interpretation as a means of creating our experience by the “meaning” we give it by how we reform it internally as a congruent part of an ongoing story.

The meaning we give things forms our internal dialogue as a kind of story we’re always in the process of telling ourselves about things. We take the information naturally selected as a match to our values, preferences, and beliefs and further modify them by how we adapt them to the ongoing story we’re always in the process of telling as a means of explaining and describing things. This ongoing story that we’re always in the process of telling is what gives things the meaning they have for us and ultimately becomes a kind of “life theme” that produces a consistent version of reality. Through a simple process of self-observation you’ll notice that there’s always one part of you talking to another part of you.

The very act of observing and perceiving something reorganizes the different aspects of it, enhancing and strengthening some, while downplaying and ignoring others, reshaping it into a new variable as a means of experiencing it. Any belief that we form becomes a filter that not only determines what we see or don’t see in a situation, but also determines how we interpret it to give it the meaning that it has. Things only mean what we say they mean. This forms another fundamental misconception. All meaning is subjective in nature and varies with every single person. We create our experience of any situation or event based on the meaning we give it and what we “tell ourselves” about it as a result.

What something means to us is based on our values and what’s important or not important to us, what we believe to be true and thereby use as a means of evaluating it for accuracy, and the memories we associate with it as a means of interpreting it. Our memories not only act to shape our values and what we come to believe or disbelieve, but are in return shaped out of our values and beliefs, which all act together in a cohesive manner to spawn each other while also serving to support, validate, and justify each other in forming a coherent version of reality that’s consistent and always makes sense to us.

Our values, beliefs, preferences, and memories work together to produce a coherent model as a dynamic series of mental filters that function to only perceive the information in the whole that can be used to construct the reality of our mental paradigm. Each person acts to develop their own mental model which is used to produce a subjective variation of an objective neutral reality as the means of creating. Our experience of reality is something we’re (our mind) always creating. While others may act to give us the subliminal suggestions that become our subconscious programming, we are always the one accepting and integrating it into our mental paradigm and then utilizing it as a means of creating ourselves.

For example, a person who forms a belief that they’re “not wanted” will interpret any situation or actions of another to mean that. They’ll only see in any situation what they can use as the means of creating an experience of not being wanted, and are constantly acting to validate their own beliefs. Even when someone does want them and demonstrates that through their actions and how they treat them, they’ll still interpret it in whatever way they need to as a means of creating the experience of not being wanted. This tendency and natural ability to skew reality to make it mean whatever we decide to, is what’s commonly referred to as an “illusion”.

Illusions that become Delusions

When we form convincing realities out of our beliefs (which is a natural function of the mind), it forms an illusion that we use as the means of deceiving and deluding ourselves. This means it’s only real to us and nobody else sees it or experiences it in the same way that we do. The same situation will cause one person to feel not wanted, while another may feel they’re being coerced or manipulated, while still another may find it friendly and inviting. Each person will interpret the same behaviors and activities to mean different things and create entirely different types of experiences based on their subconscious programming. Every person that’s a part of the same situation is experiencing it in a different way based on how it’s filtered through their mental paradigm.

 We don’t ever change the objective outer reality directly in terms of what everyone else is also seeing, but rather how it “appears” to us. All things take on the appearance they do as a reflection of the mind viewing them and acting to shape them as a mental projection. The same objective reality appears different to each individual observing and producing an experience of it. As we turn an objective reality into a personal version as our experience, we become subject to our own creation. As we create our own experience of reality, we sense ourselves “as” and “through” our experience, and we shape our perception of our “self” to be the same.

We “become” whatever we believe about ourselves as an experience, and by what we tell ourselves about things that make them mean what they do. As we assign meaning to things we form our story about our self out of them by experiencing our self “through them”. As we form realities out of our beliefs, they become delusions that we willfully maintain even when situations serve to contradict or disprove them. Most people will argue to defend their beliefs about things rather than change them. They fall in love with their own opinions while mistaking them for being true. As we tell our story about things we build our identity around them and use them as a means of explaining what happened to us that made us the way we are, and rather than changing our inner world we expect the outer world to somehow magically change instead. This is because we don’t realize that the outer world is being created by our inner world as a correspondence.

Delusion and how we Deceive Ourselves

Our core beliefs are formed by us as children based on how we interpreted intense emotional events before we developed our ability to reason and logically analyze them in an objective manner. As children, we’re in a purely unconscious and subjective state where everything is about us. The primary beliefs we formed out of emotional states became the premise and mental filters out of which we formed all of our other beliefs. The story we began telling ourselves as a child in order to try and make sense of emotionally charged experiences, formed the basis for our mental model out of which we processed all information as a means of creating our perception of reality. It became our subconscious programming that formed the basis for all of our experiences. Whatever we program our subconscious with as an “imaginary emotionally intense idea” becomes the basis for reality as an experience. Because we can experience the reality of our beliefs we don’t realize that they’re only true due to our ability to create them through our perception of them.

We don’t form individual beliefs about things, but rather form a system of beliefs that are compatible and serve to support, justify, validate, and prove each other. This is why experiences that contradict a single belief or perspective is usually ignored, argued against, or discredited using other beliefs, and the belief maintained instead, and sometimes even strengthened as a result. To change a belief requires changing the core belief spawning it, which comes only through a shift in awareness that alters and modifies our paradigm.

All beliefs are formed out of our mental model and can only be changed by incorporating new information that modifies the whole structure. This only comes through direct experience that’s contemplated as a consideration that’s allowed to take hold in the imagination where it’s formed into a possible, and therefore “believable” reality as an internal experience. We can only comprehend what we can form as an internal representation, and we can only do what we can first imagine ourselves doing.

This natural process of the individual mind in creating reality by imagining it is what’s referred to as replacing objective reality with illusions that become a form of delusion. When we don’t realize how our own mind works to create our reality, and we’re always operating out of an unconscious state, our tendency towards self-deception is enormous and often very compelling. This results from the fact that we don’t understand how our own mind works and haven’t developed the skill in knowing how to operate it consciously. Because the most powerful aspect of our mind operates without our direct awareness we don’t realize its power to create. Through a lack of true self-awareness we become subject to our own creations instead of mastering our ability to create. Anytime we live out of the story of our formative conditioning as the basis for our perceptions and means of interpreting the events of our life, we live a life of delusion and unknowingly act on ourselves to deceive ourselves.

Summary:

What we’ve come to call “reality” is a very elusive idea that’s constantly being reshaped to take on a new and unique appearance based on the mind interacting with it. Each individual cultivates their own mental model which acts as a filtering system for abstracting certain information in any situation and reorganizing it by how they interpret it to give it meaning. The meaning we give things shapes how we form our experience of it. Our experience comes as our feelings and internal dialogue as what we tell ourselves about it while reforming it in our mind as a internal representation. Meaning, like the mind creating it, is threefold in nature. Whatever we make something mean through our story about it means the same thing about us, other people, and the world in general. Whatever beliefs we form about ourselves, we also use as the means of shaping others and the events of the world to be of the same nature and idea. Every aspect of our reality supports every other aspect, and serves to prove and justify it as being real and therefore true.

We create a subjective experience of reality from a completely unconscious state, and as a result, don’t realize what we’re doing. We don’t realize our mind’s own power to create, and so we imagine we have no control over it. We can live our whole life feeling as though everything is happening “to us” and beyond our ability to change it. Because we’re programmed subconsciously at an early age, we consistently grow up in the reality being produce by our programming, and don’t realize we’re the one actually creating it. Once we begin realizing how our own mind works to form beliefs around whatever we’ve been taught, we can become self-aware and recognize how it is we’re doing it. Once we begin realizing and forming a practical understanding of how our mind works to create our experiences of reality, we can begin operating it in an intentional and deliberate manner by learning how to program ourselves to produce the type of experiences we want.

The Holographic Principle – Our Etheric Blueprint and the Nature of Memory

All of what we call “universal principles” operate as a coherent creative process that creates on multiple scales and planes simultaneously to form what we perceive as a unified reality. One principle lays the foundation for another principle to spontaneously arise out of it as a natural growth process. A hologram is formed by taking a single beam of concentrated light and splitting it in two, and using mirrors to reflect one beam through an image where it makes an energetic impression of the image, while the other beam remains a pure light source and is reflected back into the impression of the image, forming an interference pattern out of which a three dimensional form arises. A hologram as a etheric (light essence) form is birthed through what’s called the “Vesica Piscis” or Dyad (womb of the universe) in Sacred Geometry, which is what’s called an interference pattern in quantum physics.

The One (unformed) divides and projects itself to become two (aspects of the same mind) in order to create an image (memory) of itself as a physical being. The image of itself is created in the imagination of the subconscious (inwardly) and is then “witnessed” by the complementary aspect of the conscious mind of outer awareness, and together form what appears as a single reality. The inner image acts as a kind of metaphor for producing the outer reality as a thematic pattern of a similar, yet more inclusive and complex nature. What we imagine as an “internal representation” (self-created memory) becomes the symbolic, archetypal template we use for perceiving the same idea outside of us as our personalized experience of reality. Reality itself is produced as a vibratory frequency (range of vibration) that organizes light-essence into dynamic variations of the same basic pattern.

Energetically the inner and outer are a part of a continuous “field of organized information” viewed from two perspectives simultaneously, and modified into new variations through a dynamic process of adaptation. The part (individual) contains and is constructed out of the same information as the whole. All universal ideas originate as archetypes that are symbolic metaphors that form general themes, and lend themselves to be drawn into the mind of the individual, where they’re adapted to their paradigm and modified to intuitively fit into their personal reality in a logical and meaningful way. As a higher soul, we’re always taking universal ideas as archetypes and using them to produce a personalized version that holds true to the same basic idea as a theme for creating both our inner and outer experience of reality.

We tend to mistakenly interpret universal ideas as being literal and specific in terms of the personal version created, when in fact the universal idea exists in a “potential state” as a symbolic idea out of which an infinite number of variations can be created through a continuous process of adaptation and modification by the individual mind. We’re always borrowing universal ideas as dynamic themes in order to create at the individual level. Whatever ideas we adopt, we mold in our mind to be of the same nature and likeness as we are (metaphorical pattern), and use them as the means of experiencing our self through the perception of reality we create out of them.  We become one with the idea in mind and spirit and shape ourselves energetically by way of the reality as a subjective experience it provides us with. Whatever becomes a natural part of our outer perception has been successfully integrated into our mental paradigm as an essential part of us.

What we think of as a holographic image or reality is naturally formed in our imagination through our minds ability to take an archetypal idea as a generalized pattern and shape astral light as energetic essence into the form of the idea by how we interpret it. Just as an artist takes a generalized idea and creates a new interpretation that changes how it appears through the process of self-expression, we’re always taking universal ideas and using them in new ways by adapting them to our personal model and everyday life, utilizing them as the means for creating our self and our life. 

Once an idea is formed into an internal representation as a form of working concept necessary to understand it, and it’s developed further by defining it with sensory detail, it becomes a form of transparent template (perceptual lens) we “look through” in order to perceive that same idea outside of us as an inherent part of our reality. We experience it both as an inner thought form and an outer reality of the same nature, and as a result, it becomes a form of “memory”. A memory acts as a kind of metaphorical idea and thematic pattern that becomes an essential part of our energetic makeup that serves to form our perceptual lens.

Memories aren’t factual or objective in nature as a literal account of something, as many believe, but are formed in the same manner described above. Memories are formed by how we “interpret” an actual event to give it meaning that shapes the story we tell ourselves about it as our means of “experiencing it”, which we then form into a memory of it. We “reorganize” the elements of the event itself through our interpretation of it that turns it into a personal creation as a form of theme. Once formed, we continue to use memories as the means of creating our experiences by continuing to replay them over and over in our mind’s eye and using them as the means for interpreting current ideas to mean the same thing as past ideas. In this way our life takes on a general theme as our life story where we create all of our experiences out of the same handful of memories.  

Our soul’s constitution is comprised of memory that forms our character and the basis for the etheric infrastructure (frequency) that organizes the inner and outer to be of the same nature as a metaphor that’s played out on a larger scale as a life-theme. Our character determines the type of story we act to naturally tell by how we live our life. Reality is formed as a material manifestation of our soul’s essence (organized information) as the reconstitution of our soul’s basic character, which undergoes a constant form of evolution by how it adapts to new conditions and circumstances forming new variations of itself as analogies. The same idea is played out in a multitude of ways based on how it’s applied and systematically adapted to what it’s being applied to, and thereby modified to produce a new variation of the same fundamental idea.

Memory can be thought of as an energetic blueprint that’s comprised of a dynamic mesh held together by etheric stresses that serve to form a etheric-double as the means for structuring our outer reality to correspond symbolically to our inner reality. The inner sets the vibratory frequency for ordering the outer to be of the same nature. We use internal representations as the means for navigating our outer reality. In order to change the outer, we have to work on ourselves to change our inner representation that’s being used to organize and form it. All reality only exists as our perception of it. All perception is born out of our mental paradigm, which is formed out of accumulated and fully integrated experiences as memory. Because all experiences are produced out of the same basic group of memories as variations, and are integrated to form a single and coherent model, our soul’s memory is formed as a singularity.  

In order to change our reality we have to change our “self”, because both arise out of the same memory. In order to reform material reality we have to reform the energetic blueprint being used to shape and animate it. All physical transformation comes by modifying the memory being used as the means for creating it. We modify our etheric double (lower soul) by working on our self to alter and upgrade our memories. Just as we created all of our initial memories by how we imagined them, we can transform them by reimagining them to create new ways of experiencing the same idea. Naturally, we do this by utilizing the same faculties of the mind we used to create the memories in the first place. We reprogram our subconscious with new memories fashioned in our imagination and replayed numerous times until they become established and can be recalled instantly in place of the old ones.

Soul Memory and the Journey of Self-Creation through the Space-Time Continuum

The true nature of what we call time and space as “material reality” is elusive in the ultimate sense, yet quite obvious when we really look at how we form an experience of it. The problem tends to come when we imagine that both time and reality is something that exists apart from us and not dependent on our perception of it. Yet, if we really look at what it is that creates the “experience” of time and space, we can realize in the most direct sense, that it’s formed exclusively out of “memory”. The entire material world is consistently constructed and reconstructed moment by moment out of memory of some kind relived in the imagination. Things only “exist” as they’re “perceived” in the imagination by remembering them. Without the memory of something, it can’t be thought about and relived in the mind’s eye as existing outside of the present moment. DNA, which is what’s used to form the entire material world, carries memory as information that it uses for organizing matter into a specific formula for constructing and animating a physical form. The “organizing force” comes as an active life-force that enters into DNA as a single cell and activates a process of regeneration and specialization that systematically constructs a whole living being. This life-force energy organizes memory in such a way that it creates a specialized being of a certain species, while giving it a somewhat unique personality, that has its place in the natural order of a larger Eco-system, all of which is constructed out of the same primary group of information that’s organized into different formulas as variations of the same overall pattern. It creates the body with certain attributes, qualities, and characteristics that produce natural abilities, behaviors, and tendencies.

DNA, like the mind itself, is what forms the physical body and personality as an “ideal vehicle” for the soul to inhabit out of “shared memory” that’s of the same nature. The mind re-informs the memory of the DNA of the body by acquiring and integrating new types of information that it integrates as experiences as a reality that form new memory. How the body manifests and consistently regenerates itself throughout a lifespan, is based on its memory and how that memory is transformed and evolved by the mind and soul that inhabits it and uses it to express through by creating experiences. Memory is used as the means for creating all of our experiences as a regenerative process that produces more experiences and memory of the same nature and kind. The higher soul of the human being, which has the ability to self-create, is formed as an “identity” that’s also formed out of accumulated memory as self-produced experiences of itself, and “matches” the memory of the personality and body, making it an ideal instrument for the identity of the soul to incarnate and create itself. An “artist” as a kind of person, is of the soul, whereas the dexterity, desire, and natural abilities are of the body and personality, and together they create a “coherent experience” of the “self” as being an artist of some kind. The soul can either choose a body (memory) that facilitates its identity in a harmonious way, or that produces challenges to creating that identity that must be overcome in order to achieve that identity as an experience of itself. The soul creates itself by telling a certain “type of story” that has a twist to it that alters the nature of the telling. Our “story”, which is how we create ourselves, is completely based on and constructed out of memory. The “past” only exists in the present through our memory of it. We restructure the present out of memory of the past, producing a consistent experience of reality. If we lose our memory of the past we don’t “know who we are” because we can’t reconstruct it in our mind’s eye as the story about our self. The “self” is a creation of the soul as an “idea” that it plays out within our current life conditions. Who we “become” is based on how we create our experiences of the events of our life that form our memories of our self. Memory as a certain identity (archetype) couples with the memory of the body (ancestral) and personality to produce more memories of the “same nature” as a unique variation that’s formed by adapting and modifying it to a new set of circumstances, altering it to tell a somewhat different type of story about the same “kind of person”.

Universal and Personal What we refer to as the human soul, which is bestowed with higher capacities of the mind to self-create, acts as the “medium” between the spiritual plane of universal memory (archetypes) and the material plane of personal (modified archetypes) memory. All personal memory is produced by using archetypal ideas of a universal theme and applying it to a specific set of circumstances and conditions to produce a new memory of the same “type of idea” as a personal creation. The creative (human) soul has the ability to choose what ideas it uses to create itself, and forms a “soul-matrix” as a dynamic structure formulated by a cluster of qualities used to create experiences that then form the memory of itself “as” something specific. A universal idea is drawn down from the higher plane of pure potential (as an unformed idea) into the mind of the soul, where it then undergoes a constant evolutionary process of transformation to be reformed as a personalized version of the same idea. It’s modified through the person’s mental paradigm and as it’s being applied to a specific set of circumstances to produce experiences of a unique and personal nature. This is the same principle as a creative process that operates instinct as the universal memory and knowledge that drives and produces all activity of the natural world from an unconscious state that’s “intuitive and automatic” in nature. Humans possess higher capacities of self-creation as self-awareness, the ability to evaluate, choose and decide, and the will to act out our decisions. We can choose what ideas we focus on, give life to inside of us by imagining them as internal realities, using to shape our character by how we form them into a story that produces how we experience of our self. The human soul has the ability to create itself from a fully conscious state through the same type of process as natural selection that governs the natural world through an unconscious state. We act to produce our own experiences out of a larger shared reality, by actively deciding what memories of ourselves we use to first produce as an experience, and then absorb and integrate back into us in order to upgrade and evolve our “model of the world” to produce a consistent and congruent story about ourselves. Universal memory is drawn down from a higher plane through resonance and used to create personal memory of the same nature. The higher soul, which is primarily of a universal nature, then acts to transform the experience back into a universal, non-personal memory as more of a “theme” upon the death of the body. The memory of a specific “type of experience” attained while in a body and located within time and space as a “specific entity”, is retained by the higher soul as a universal idea that can then be applied equally to any set of conditions and circumstances to produce the same type of experiences. Our memory of a specific cat, for example, isn’t retained by the soul as that specific cat, but returned to a somewhat universal status as our experience of “cats in general”. It becomes a generalized memory that forms our impression of all cats as a general idea, and whether or not we like, dislike, or feel a connection with them. As the soul incarnates into a new body and life conditions, it brings a general predisposition towards cats with it, and uses it to form similar relationships and experiences of cats within its new expression of itself.

The Nature of Time and Space What we experience as “time and space” doesn’t exist outside of our memory of it. What we call “space” is formed out of “information” organized into a 3-D, holographic form as an energetic matrix that’s constructed out of memory. All reality is based on our perception of it and only exists in our mind as a mental construct. What we experience as the objective and neutral reality that appears to exist apart from us as Nature and mass consciousness is formed in exactly the same way out of universal memory constructed within the greater universal mind on a larger scale (commonly called a “plane of existence”). This greater reality of the “collective unconscious” is produced out of the same “thematic ideas” as Archetypes that we then use to create within the same overall mental construct to produce specialized versions as personal creations of the same nature. The entire natural world is holographic in nature and is formed out of the same group of information organized at the individual level into specialized (personal) versions (patterns as formulas) that perform different operations and functions of a larger overall idea in a unique way.

Quantum Physics, Time Travel and Timelines Quantum physics, which is the area of modern day science that’s rediscovering Ancient Knowledge of Spiritual Sciences, has demonstrated the nature of the relationship that exists between consciousness and matter, and the (individual) minds ability to “influence” matter into different versions of an overall shared idea. Through this realization as an observation (not based on belief), we also know that “time doesn’t exist” in the ultimate sense of the idea, and is actually produced out of the mind itself as a mental construct of memory. Time travel therefore is based on “timelines” of the person or object being moved back and forth in time as the reconstruction of shared memory. Where we’re able to “go” in time and what location we can go to, is based on the memory of the individual or object being transported. The soul, which is comprised solely of memory, can only go back or forward in time based on its memory of itself, and the places it formed those memories out of. It “can’t” access realities and experiences it has no memory of. This is the entire basis for “past life regression”, and why there is confusion around whether or not the soul of the individual is really accessing universal memory, the ancestral memory of its current genetic make-up, or actual memory created by the soul itself in what appears to be “previous” lifetimes. This is because they’re all ultimately the same thing, all formed out of the same thematic idea that lends themselves to endless applications to produce an infinite number of variations. The human soul creates itself as a “unique archetype” by borrowing universal memory to transform into a unique variation as personal memory. We are all “multidimensional” in nature, and are comprised of the same primary archetypes (gods of the zodiac) formulated in different ways to produce a unique variation as the means of creating ourselves to be “god-like”.

A key discovery that Nikola Tesla made years ago regarding time travel as teleportation from one location to another within the same dimension, and demonstrated through the “Philadelphia Experiment”, was the importance of “timelines as memory”, not only of the individuals involved, but of the object or ship itself. All material objects, whether organic or inorganic, “contains” the memory used to fabricate them, as well as the memory of all events and activities it went through and that were being played out around or in them. Memory isn’t just contained in a material object itself, but is also recorded as a mental imprint in the “space” as the invisible field around the object. Every material object, whether living or not, is accompanied by an electromagnetic field of organized information as memory that’s used to structure and generate it, hold it together in a unified manner, and animate it through a specific set of behaviors and functions. As Tesla proved, if people and an object are being moved back or forth in time together, they have to be of the same timeline as shared memory. This energetic field that exists in the empty space around us that contains an infinite amount of both personal and universal memory is also commonly referred to as the Ether, Astral Plane of (star) Light, and the Akashic Field as the Book of Life or Hall of Records. The memory of every individual, being, or thing, is contained in the electromagnetic field (auric field) that surrounds, permeates, and inhabits it, and is what acts to “inform it” as its “life memory”. These accumulated memories act to form the “timeline” of the being or object and always accompanies it as long as it “exists” as a material form of some kind. This is because memory is what acts to produce the material form. When the soul leaves the body, it absorbs all memory of itself attained while in the body, while transforming it back into a somewhat universal state, and exists within the astral plane “as” memory in its potential state.

The Spiritual Nature of Material Form The entire material world is created through a step-down process of soul memory forming the subconscious memory of both the soul and body, and the memory of the DNA used to construct the body, all of which form a unified being of the same nature and likeness. DNA contains information as a combination of memory that’s activated and organized by an animating energy (life-force) that ultimately produces something out of nothing. Matter itself is comprised of empty space as light (photons) that’s “neutral and dead” (passive) in nature and only organized into a living form by the soul as specialized memory that inhabits it. Matter as Astral (star) Light (essence) is formed into an “empty shell” that the soul can then inhabit as the means of creating itself. The soul, which is universal in nature, locates itself within the space-time continuum by constructing a light-body as the means of self-expressing and creating itself by way of its own self-produced experiences of reality. The soul is what first produces then gives life to the body. When the soul leaves the body, it’s no longer alive and dies and eventually disintegrates. The “spirit” provides the memory as complete patterns of information used by the soul to produce a unique and individual physical equivalent or prototype out of. The memory of the DNA in a single cell is activated and used to produce a greater physical form by reproducing itself in a continuous process of division, specialization, and differentiation. As the single cell divides and doubles, it produces numerous “aspects of itself” that all function in different ways to create a whole organism comprised of trillions of reproductions that act together in perfect unison to create what appears as a single reality. As the soul and body combine to form a unique variation of the same type of memory, they continue to regenerate forming new memory by how it’s applied to new circumstances, expressing the same idea in new ways to form new types of memory that are of the same basic nature. It “re-informs itself” through the integration and assimilation of memory that it first produces, then absorbs and uptakes to shape itself in new ways as an evolutionary process of growth and development.

Individuality of the Soul The soul creates itself as an “individual” by how it associates and identifies with its own self-created experiences. The lower soul of the animal body, lives out of the memory of its formative conditioning and genetic constitution as a part of the group mind, and lacks any form of individuality that sets it apart from the group. When the higher, human soul lives out of its conditioning of the current body and personality that’s created from a primarily unconscious state, it simply creates a constant form of the same type of experiences over and over, while rejecting and arguing against the acceptance and incorporation of any new kinds of information that would serve to upgrade its “model of the world” to produce new perceptions that would bring new types of experiences and memories that would serve to “evolve itself” accordingly. Anytime the soul exists as someone or something specific, it’s formed out of its own individual memory that it acted to create of itself while inhabiting a physical body of some form. When the soul leaves a body, all memory attained through that body as its “personal memory” is transformed back into its universal, archetypal state as a thematic or generalized idea. Then when the soul inhabits a new body and personality, that same memory as a form of theme, can be readily applied in a brand new way to create in a similar manner as a new variation of itself. At the death of the body, all memory is absorbed by the soul in a way that’s no longer based on how it identified with the body, but rather as it used the body to create itself by what story it served to tell by how it lived its life. The body, like the entire material realm, which is located in space and time, is produced by the mind of the soul as the reenactment of accumulated memory. Our soul memory and the reality it acts to produce is what forms the basis for what is commonly called “karma”.

The Eternal Nature of the Soul The idea of immortality and mortality is all based on what aspect of ourselves we identify with and how we perceive ourselves as a result. The body is firmly located within “space and time” as a “created being” in a specific location as a specific personality, and is therefore mortal in nature. The soul, which inhabits and gives life to the body, exists as an “idea” that provides the “potential” as the basis for creating itself as a “physical form” that’s of a certain nature. The soul is comprised of pure memory that acts as the means for producing material form on different scales and magnitudes simultaneously. It doesn’t act to just create the body that it then inhabits as a means of expressing to create itself, but the entire physical world of the body as its reality or the “stage that sets the basis for creating as a life-drama”. The soul doesn’t just exist outside of time and space, but is actually what “creates the illusion” of time and space. When it’s not “inform” as a body and personality, it doesn’t exist within the material dimension of time and space as a located being, but exists within the astral plane of formation as the memory (vibratory frequency) that provides the means for producing the entire physical world as we know it. It doesn’t just create the body that it then inhabits, but creates the entire outer reality that the body exists in as the landscape and setting of the same type of memory. Experiences all come as both an “internal formation of an idea” that then acts as the “perceptual lens and filtering system” for perceiving that same idea outside of ourselves on a larger scale, providing the means for acting it out as a drama of some kind in order to produce an “experience of it”. The soul is of both a personal and universal nature, which means it’s both the smaller individual mind and the larger universal mind simultaneously. The inner (personal) and outer (universal) world are reflections and projections of each other, and just as universal memory is used to produce personal memory, the outer reality that the soul “lives in” is also produced by it through its universal nature. The entire material world as we perceive it is a product of our soul’s memory as the means of self-expression and self-creation. As we express outwardly creating an experience, we form a realization of ourselves through and as the experience. The human soul and mind exists within the astral plane of Formation and is what constructs the entire 4-dimensional world out of memory as the means of perceiving and experiencing itself in order to create and transform itself through a self-perpetuating process of growth and development.

The Nature of Projection, Judgment, and Emotional Reactions

The idea that whatever we see in others and have a strong reaction to is something that we also have in us, can be difficult to understand because of course we don’t see ourselves as being anything like them and may even despise them for being that way. We’re not relating to them, agreeing with them, and don’t have any memory whatsoever of being that way ourselves. Many of the behaviors we react to and judge harshly are the same type of dynamics we grew up with or were subject to at various points in our life, and we actually fashioned ourselves by way of them to be the opposite. We put forth a conscious effort to make sure we were nothing like them and made sure we never behaved that way. So to contemplate the idea that we share the same traits can be confusing in the most basic sense and something that we refute through a form of “knowing ourselves”. Yet this idea comes from the fact that we actually have both a conscious and unconscious “self”, both of which are being projected all the time to make up our perception of others and our environment, and through an understanding of how we are always acting “on ourselves” to “create ourselves”.

Our soul is comprised of both a conscious and unconscious mind, and we are always acting to create ourselves through both aspects of our mind, though we are only fully aware of the conscious aspects which are the ones that we willing choose, give expression to and use to form experiences of ourselves. As we create experiences of ourselves, we accumulate memories of “being that way”, and we begin building an image of ourselves out of only the aspects we’re aware of. This conscious self-image, referred to as the “ego”, or more accurately the “false ego”, is the image that we use as the means of sensing ourselves as a certain type of person based on what we know and accept about ourselves and what attributes, qualities, and traits we accept and freely express “as” our personality and basic ways of being. This idea we create about ourselves is a “false” idea because it’s based only partial information and aspects of ourselves and doesn’t incorporate aspects that we have while refusing to express them.

There are two basic ways that we are always in the process of creating ourselves. We are either creating ourselves to be “like” others, or the “opposite” of others. As we encounter and experience and individual, activity, or idea, we enter into relationship with it and compare, contrast, and relate to it as the means of sensing ourselves by way of it. Energetically, we’re constantly being influenced and stimulated by others and our environment. Whatever qualities are being outwardly expressed in any situation, stimulate those same qualities “in us”, awakening and calling them forth into an active state. All energy has both dominant and passive aspects as inherent parts of it. As we’re being stimulated by something or someone, we realize it, sense ourselves through and “as” that quality of being, and we judge and evaluate it accordingly. If our judgment is favorable, and expressing it “matches” or is congruent with our idea about ourselves, we embrace it, allow it and freely express it, shaping ourselves by way of it to be “like it”. If however our judgment is harsh and negative, and doesn’t comply with what we accustomed to expressing, then we refuse to express it, deny to ourselves that we “have it” (the feeling, tendency, or behavior), and we repress it instead. As we deny feelings that are an active part of our psychological makeup, because we deem them bad or wrong somehow, they remain active in us and we continue projecting them outwardly, just as we do our conscious self-aware aspects, and they become an inherent part of others and our environment.

       As a quality and feeling is activated in us by some kind of stimulus, brought forth into our awareness where we “sense ourselves” as being like that and we judge it to be bad or wrong somehow, and as a result can’t find an appropriate means to express it because the situation that’s acting to stimulate it is also being judged as inappropriate, and so we refuse to, we simultaneously choose how to be instead and in what way we’re going to express ourselves in contrast to it. We develop ourselves to somehow be the opposite of it by what we actively choose instead. This “division of the self”, produced by a form of judgment births contrasting aspects of ourselves as our “shadow” or “hidden aspects” and our “ego” as our accepted and freely expressed aspects. The ego and the shadow are adversaries and mortal enemies, because the dissolution of the shadow through self-awareness and active expression means the “death of the ego” in terms of transformation.

As we “judge” ourselves based on active qualities in us, which are what cause us to refuse and deny them, we then project those same qualities onto others, and as we “see those qualities” in them, we judge them just as harshly, and through the experience it brings us, we shape ourselves once again to somehow be the “opposite of them”. If we deem someone to be an idiot or asshole, we simultaneously produce an opposing image of ourselves as being wise, profound, and kind in contrast to them. If we see someone as being arrogant, selfish, or manipulative, we immediately produce a sense of ourselves as being whatever we consider the opposite to be. In this way, we are literally dependent on them as the means of creating ourselves to be their opposition. We first judge ourselves for having those same feelings, desires, impulses, and traits, which are universal in nature and a part of all humanity, causing us to repress and forget about them, yet we still have a pronounced “reaction to them” in others and all around us.

The act of “judging” or discriminating is a natural part of the minds ability to reason, choose and willfully act out choices as the means of creating itself through its experiences. Most of what we refer to as being “judgmental” or as “judging others” is due to an incorrect use of judgment that’s a form of “value judgment”. The criteria that we use for judging ourselves is usually taught to us as a part of our conditioning through the group mind or mass consciousness, and is one of the most basic ways they or it plants the seeds that we use throughout our life to create ourselves and others to “conform” to the general consensus. We’re “taught” what good and bad are as values and beliefs of some kind, and we use this first to create ourselves initially, and then continue to create ourselves by way of it in relationship with everyone and everything else. It’s one of the most primary forms of mind control and brainwashing that’s conducted for the most part in a completely unconscious and automatic manner.

       It’s easy to realize that we only have strong emotional reactions to some people, ideas, and activities, while others we relate to, acknowledge as being good and right and feel at one with. All reaction comes from encountering outside of us what’s the complementary opposite of what’s inside of us. If it’s the same we barely notice it, it blends congruently with our experiences, and we don’t challenge it in any way. When it opposes us (or our self-made image of ourselves), it elicits an immediate and often intense emotional charge, and our thoughts about it that create how we experience it are highly judgmental in the sense of seeing them as bad, repulsive, and despicable somehow. As we judge them, it reinforces our judgment of ourselves, and we repress that idea even further, while still creating ourselves by way of it, as its opposition.

All ideas of a moral nature have a very strong emotional component connected to them, just as all actual memories of any kind are formed into memories because of the strong emotions being experienced at the time they were created. An idea or actual memory is activated in us through an emotional charge that’s transmitted from one person to the other, or that we produce inside of us through our natural reaction to it. Our thoughts about things produce our own emotional reaction, and emotions being transmitted by others and received by us control our thoughts through the memories they elicit. All value judgments (right and wrong) have a strong emotional component to them that not only arouse us and drive our thoughts in a compulsive way, but are also the foundation out of which we created ourselves. So to “give up” our judgments, is to transform our ego and our “sense of self”, requiring us to acknowledge and bring into awareness aspects of ourselves that we’ve never outwardly expressed before. When this happens, we don’t know how to be and can feel torn with deep feelings of insecurity and the lingering residue of harsh judgments that we’ve used to shape every aspect of ourselves and our life.

In the same manner, we form what we can call actual and objective judgments that are a form of accurate evaluation using “good judgment” and discretion that we have no problem not expressing because it’s honestly not “in us” to be that way. As we come across ideas through an experience of some kind, we’re always defining ourselves through contemplating them, trying them on, running scenarios of what they’d be like if we played them out as a reality, then, sensing ourselves in that situation as a way of realizing what’s actually in us as a part of our character and what’s not. We don’t necessarily judge them as right or wrong, but simply not who we are and not the reality we want to produce and play a part in. For example, sexual promiscuity or adultery may be an idea that’s playing out around us or is a part of our immediate environment, which, as we view it in terms of the reality and what it means about us as a result, what it would cause in other areas of our life, we may realize without doubt that there’s no part of us that’s like that. We’re not inclined to engage in those types of activities. Though we may find ourselves sexually attracted to others occasionally and the opportunities arise in which we could easily participate, or we feel “tempted” somehow, when thinking about the reality of it and how we’d feel being in it doing it, we realize we don’t want it, and so we decide not to. This is different than deciding not to because we feel like it would make us out to be a liar, cheat, deceptive, raunchy and bad person as what forms our decision not to. It’s all about what our “reason is” for making the decision.

       To encounter and become aware of our shadow, embracing it instead of denying it, brings us face to face with who we really are and why we became the way we did. If we admit to ourselves having a feeling and desire towards something that we judge harshly as being bad and wrong to do, and that we also have those same urges and impulses sometimes, it can cause us to go into a bit of an identity crisis. If we realize however that all qualities and traits have their appropriate expression under the right circumstances, and we realize that part of our judgment came from the situation or activity implied by them through association that was inappropriate for expressing that idea, and we look instead for how we could express it in a way that would enhance our current experience and expand our ego’s ability to create unique and diverse experiences of ourselves, we can find the means of expression that will create in a productive and conscious manner while bringing us some level of gratification and satisfaction. Even what seems like the worse traits and activity can be exactly what’s called for under the right circumstances and within the appropriate situation, and as a result, will be the best and most appropriate response.

While most believe that the shadow is comprised of our “worst traits” or ones that are easily seen as bad, the fact is it’s comprised of any trait that we deem bad, wrong, weak, or that would somehow mean something bad about us if we were that way. For example, if someone has been led to believe that being “nice” is a form of weakness, perhaps because they were taken advantage of by someone whenever they were nice, they judge themselves as being weak for being that way, and will refuse to be that way and choose to act mean, harsh, or uncaring instead, perceiving that to mean that they’re strong and in control. Someone who’s very compassionate and caring may have ended up feeling like a doormat or as though they’re always being manipulated by those only looking to take, and will consider it a bad trait to openly express, and will become hardened in whatever way they feel they need to in order to suppress that tendency. So judgment isn’t just in regards to what could clearly be seen as a destructive way of being, but it’s formed by whatever we used as the means of creating ourselves by how we interpreted it and experienced it through our formative conditioning. Some people who are in reality exceedingly gentle and kind can put on the appearance of being rude, obtrusive, or tough, and ridicule those who are gentle and kind, as a means of protecting and shielding themselves from what they have experienced as being very negative consequences to being the way they “really are”.

Once we realize what’s really happening whenever we are reacting and judging someone, and we choose instead to refrain from acting and turn inwards to see what it is in us that feels such a strong need to judge them, what is the reaction about, and we let a free-flow association of ideas take place where we recall memories that were of a similar nature, and times in our life when we had the same feelings and inclinations towards being that way, we can begin realizing a part of our nature that we convinced ourselves we didn’t have and as a result, forgot about having. We can come to realize that as children in our formative years we didn’t have the ability to reason, judge and choose for ourselves, and so we we’re told how to judge people and in what way to judge them. We we’re taught to be judgmental based on someone else’s opinions, values and beliefs, and criteria for using to shape ourselves and everyone else to be the same way.

As children we don’t know who we are and we begin creating ourselves by default through the ideas and opinions of others that we’re taught and come to accept as our own. Once our “core beliefs” are established and our paradigm precisely structured, we continue creating out of it unconsciously, often throughout our lifetime, and as a result, create a false image in place of who we really are as an individual. We only break away from the group mind of the collective unconscious and begin truly creating ourselves by way of our own capacities when we begin gaining self-realization of our dual nature and we take the necessary action to integrate opposing aspects into a “whole being” that’s unified and coherent in all that we do. Through true self-awareness we can begin fashioning ourselves to be the unique individuals we are. We can break away from the mind training of the masses and become a self-referencing source of creative power.

Projection and Judgment as the Tools for Self-Realization

Once we realize what’s really going on anytime we have an adverse reaction to someone or something where we’re judging them according to our own criterion and value system, we can see it as the tool it really is. All unknown content of our subconscious mind is constantly being projected and makes up a substantial part of our outer awareness. Anything we’re “reacting to” is because we have the same quality, trait, and tendency in us that we judged just as harshly as we’re judging them. We were conditioned somehow to the same dynamic as an interactive pattern where we took on the opposing role. All reactions form the basis for self-creation through the nature of the reaction and what we tell ourselves about them while contrasting and opposing them and shaping ourselves to be the opposite. We’re always shaping ourselves to either be just like others, or the exact opposite of them. But either way, we are dependent on the active expression of our shared traits as the basis for creating ourselves no matter what role we play in acting it out together.

Because our perception of the outer environment is formed from the mental paradigm of the inner environment as a projection, we can come to realize hidden aspects of ourselves and the nature of our conditioning and why we believe what we do, and how we’re always using that to tell a story about things that shapes us simultaneously by way of playing different roles in the same story. We can realize that anytime we’re reacting and judging that we’re looking in a mirror and seeing the reverse image of the same thing. We can turn inwards, and through introspection, begin realizing our connection to the same idea and how it was that we formed our judgments that caused us to deny expressing certain parts of ourselves. We can gain insight into our early conditioning and how we were trained to the mindset that we used to create ourselves and others out of. As adults reviewing a process that was formed and set into motion as a child, we can reevaluate the same ideas with a renewed sense of clarity and see how they can be incorporated into our “known self” as the means to expand, enhance, and invigorate or ego, rather than shattering it.

All transformation comes by way of incorporating new aspects into an existing model. By blending with and taking on new and diverse qualities, we can grow ourselves in new ways and expand our range of self-expression and what’s possible, creating a new array of novel experiences. We can learn and experiment with new ways of being. We can try on new ideas to see how we feel, and decide whether or not we want to continue into it, change and alter it somehow, or ignore it in favor of something else. We can come to know what’s truly “in us as us” and what has simply been taught and acquired along the way that we accepted in place of our true self. We can begin using our true ability to intuitively reason, decide and willfully act out our decisions as the means of true independent self-creation. As we come across traits that we definitely have that we associate with very distinct ideas that we honestly can’t see ourselves doing, we can ask ourselves how we can we express this same quality in another way that will be congruent with everything else and produce a desired overall result. We can begin challenging ourselves and developing our creative abilities to self-actualize in new ways. We can break patterns and conventional mindsets in favor of individuality and freedom of self-expression because we realize that as adults we have the discretion and reasoning powers to become self-directed and therefore self-determined.

Energetic Imprinting, Conditioning, and Dynamics – Liberating your Soul from the Unconscious Tendencies that Bind You

Our soul is comprised of essence as memory that comes from the relationship it forms with the body, which resides in a predominately unconscious state, and how they work together to create experiences of reality. The subconscious mind of the body also runs off of memory which it uses to form repetitive and habitual patterns that produce a consistent and congruent version of reality. What we call “reality” is produced as both an inner imagining and the outer complementary correspondence of what’s imagined internally. The subconscious is passive and receptive in nature, meaning it has no will or ability to discriminate and make decisions of its own based on reasoning, and simply takes in ideas from the active, willful mind as suggestions that it forms into thoughts as a sensory reality in the faculty of the imagination, which is where all reality as an outer projection is born and fabricated out of essence (astral light or photons).

The soul bonds to the body through the memory inherent in its DNA, which is of a similar and compatible nature, capable of providing the soul with the corresponding reality of its memories so it can continue fashioning itself by way of the experiences the reality provides. The memory, as the essence of the soul resonates with the ancestral memory of the body, and enters into it as an active force that animates and structures it, giving it life as the ideal home or material vehicle for the soul. All levels of consciousness exist on a hierarchical plane, where the lower is always subordinate (passive) to the higher one (active), and provides the form or shell for the higher force to inhabit, bringing it into an active state of expression and creation within the material realm. This hierarchy of consciousness exists as spherical fields nested within greater and smaller fields, all of which vibrate within the same frequency as a range of vibration and lend themselves to the creation of the same type of nature and level of reality.

This level of consciousness that acts to naturally produce and actively play a role in a common (shared) reality forms a whole or singular dimension that’s structured by a dynamic interweaving of an infinite number of vibrations, all with a common core of information that act as their building blocks. All reality in this sense exists within an even greater reality as a unified dimension, where unique formulas of common elements are shaped by the individual mind to form an original version as a variation or possibility. The archetypal world of pure consciousness exists as archetypes in their potential state as what we might call generic templates. Archetypes manifest by undergoing a process of adaptation and reformulation that modify and reshape them into a new form that’s still indigenous to the greater, shared reality in which they’re birthed, maintained, and used to express at the individual level of self-creation.

        As the soul resonates and bonds with the body, forming coherence as a harmonious vibration that creates in a spontaneous manner, it acts first to reform and establish the psychological patterns of its memory as a predisposition, temperament, general attitude, and tendencies that make up its personality, then those same patterns as dynamics are played out through its conditioning, because the memories of the parents are of the same nature and dynamics of the soul, as a form of “group memory” (soul groups). As these dynamics continue to play out and we have a role in them, we’re further trained and conditioned to those dynamics as behavioral patterns that have a theme as a story-line inherent in them.

In an attempt to make sense of the events of our life and the dynamics that we’re actively a part of creating, we begin telling ourselves a story about them. This story makes them mean something, and it’s the meaning as a story-line that we become imprinted with as a dominate and habitual tendency. This means we readily perceive it and participate in it in an unconscious manner without any direct awareness or realization of what we’re doing and why. We don’t realize that all of our experiences are subjective in nature, meaning we’re the ones that are creating them by how we interpret events of our life to give them meaning, and so we imagine that life is happening “to us” in an objective manner and we have no control or say so about it. Yet, though we can’t control the events of our life (necessarily), we absolutely have full control over how we choose to experience them.

What we call reality comes as a cohesive series of events that take place outside of and around us, and how we “experience” those events, while they may seem like two separate ideas, are in fact correlated correspondences of each other. The outer, objective, abstract, and neutral reality that’s common to all of us as a form of shared or mass consciousness provides the stage and the means for organizing it in such a way that we experience it in a consistent manner through the story we’re always in the process of telling ourselves about it. This story as an interpretation makes it into a personalized version of reality as our own creation that we’re then subject to (it determines us).

        We reshape our outer reality based on personal feelings, tastes, and beliefs. We view it through the paradigm of our mind (soul memory) and we reformulate it through our emotional state to match it. We reshape it to be of the same nature as we are where it lends itself in a complementary manner to naturally tell our story about it. As we create our experiences of things, we simultaneously get a sense of ourselves through those experiences, identifying with our own creation, and shaping ourselves through the memory it provides that becomes a part of both the subconscious mind of the body and our soul’s essence. We’re constantly forming and in-forming ourselves through the experience of our own creation, by taking what exists as a “universal idea” and using it as a thematic template for creating a “personal version”.

Our formative conditioned patterns are established through the “theme” as a life dynamic that’s being played out all around us that we play a role in and are an inherent part of. While we play a certain role in a greater dynamic as a child, we are in fact “imprinted” (unconsciously programmed) with the “whole dynamic” and every role that’s required in order to act it out. Whatever role we’re not actively playing in the dynamic is being demonstrated for us by others, and we actively engage in it through our relationship with the greater whole and our constant interaction and participation in it. These dynamics are created in several areas of our life at the same time, based on the same general theme being played out in different ways through different types of relationships. How we’re treated as a child in a situation, is of the “same nature” (behavioral dynamic) as how our parents treated each other, our siblings, relatives, and all other relationships they maintained and participated in, where only the roles they actively played changed.

The relationship between our parents (or guardians) that’s being openly demonstrated and modeled for us in the normal sense, becomes the same “relationship dynamic” we play out in some form or another in our adult romantic relationships. As a general rule, we typically become one of our parents and marry the other one. Whichever parent we identify with most and align with in terms of playing the same role, we play most often, yet we unconsciously play all roles in the dynamic as a general theme. For example, if one parent is always criticizing the other one, putting them down and sarcastically belittling them somehow, and the one being criticized responds with a particular behavior (lashing out, retaliating, equally belittling, being hurt, crying, outraged, angry, or running away, etc.), that same parent will have a tendency to treat the children the same way as a general rule, and they’ll respond in a like manner to how the other parent responded (according to what’s being modeled for them to imitate). Whatever we witness going on around us is being modeled for us, and as children we tend to learn by imitating whatever’s being demonstrated for us as a relationship and means of “appropriately” responding. The same “pattern” as an overall theme is being played out in a variety of ways with every relationship within the family, based on the theme both parents share in common and the behavioral dynamic that naturally issues forth from it.

        If we’re used to being criticized as children, we’re attracted to (naturally respond) and seek out relationships of various kinds where that same dynamic is shared and can be played out faithfully in a natural and automatic fashion. We initiate and provoke the pattern, regardless of what role we play just through the nature of our interaction. For this reason, because it’s unconscious, we often have no idea we’re doing it, and so we imagine we’re innocent and once again it’s being done to us, instead of realizing that we’re the perpetrator. If we’re used to being criticized, we have a tendency to also criticize others (though we may view it different), and naturally produce the behavior that warrants criticism. We can do this intentionally through a reaction to being criticized ourselves, or as a way of retaliating and getting even by switching roles. Even when we respond by turning inward, crying and becoming meek, we’re lashing out in our thoughts and criticizing or despising them to the same degree or more that we feel criticized. Yet often, when we’re doing the criticizing, we don’t see it that way, but rather as just giving them back their own medicine or giving them “constructive feedback”. We feel justified to respond in a like manner, usually without gaining any recognition whatsoever of the overall pattern that’s being played out at the unconscious level.

When something exists in us at the unconscious level, which all of our automatic, habitual behaviors do, they serve to form the very basis of our perception, our emotional states, and what memories we use to interpret things to give them meaning through the story we tell ourselves about it that describes, explains, or justifies it, forming how we experience it. Because they’re a normal and cohesive part of our perception and way of experiencing reality, we believe they’re real in the objective sense and we have no ability to change them, because we don’t realize that we’re actively participating in creating them. We don’t know how to see something different because we’ve perceived things that way our whole life and it comes natural to us. The experience is spontaneous and comes in a natural and automatic fashion without any awareness of choice or will being involved.

So the first challenge is to be able to become aware of our own tendencies by recognizing the behavioral dynamics as a theme that we’re playing a natural part in that’s of the same dynamic that we grew up with. This can often come with us realizing we’re having a tendency to say the same thing and act in the same manner as our parents did. By developing our ability to self-reflect and focus on our own feelings and motivation, instead of always focusing on the other person, while recognizing what memories are being triggered through association that are of the same nature, we can begin realizing what exists in us as a tendency that we’re either unaware of, or only partially aware of. We have a natural tendency to always focus on the “other person” by thinking almost exclusively about how they’re being and what they’re doing “to us”, then our whole approach becomes how to “change them” so they’ll stop doing it. Yet even if they were to stop doing it, we would act out in an unconscious fashion to provoke it in them as a way of keeping the pattern going because we don’t know how to play a part in another type of relationship.

       This is because we’re not only conditioned with one role or position in a pattern or idea, but with the “whole pattern” and behavioral dynamic of which we can play every role, whether through an aware state or an unaware one, because every role in that dynamic was constantly being modeled for us, and we were either the one doing it or watching it be done. Whatever role we identified most strongly with we continue playing out with awareness, and whichever one we didn’t, we continue playing out unconsciously. Because we build our identity out of the experiences this dynamic provides, we not only keep it going in an automatic fashion, but when we get into situations where it’s not being cooperatively played out, we don’t know how to act or what to do, and so we unconsciously initiate it and provoke the proper reaction in others that sets it into motion. Once it’s set into motion and begins playing out, we’re in our element, and we have an automatic “script” where we know exactly how to be, what to say, and what to do.

When we live our life out of perceptions of our conditioning, we live from a primarily unconscious state that simply acts to repeat patterns as themes (karma) in every area of our life, over and over. This habitual state of mind forms the “life dynamic” that produces the experiences that become our soul’s memory as our essence, character, and constitution. Our soul is developed through accumulated memory attained through the body and how it identifies with it. The more of a certain type of memory we accumulate, the stronger and more stable the pattern becomes, trapping the soul at an unconscious level where it often fails to realize it has the ability to become consciously aware of unconscious tendencies, and through that awareness, dissolve the pattern, freeing itself to create in new ways by making new decisions that produce brand new experiences.

       The soul not only possesses the higher capacity of consciousness necessary for self-creating, but it also exists in polarity to higher planes of consciousness, where it acts as a medium between the upper and lower regions, and serves as the passive aspect of the active higher will, which is capable of impregnating it just as it’s capable of impregnating the imagination of the subconscious mind with an idea that it turns into a material reality. Habitual patterns only continue to play out when we’re unaware of them. By utilizing the witnessing capacity of the soul to realize the unconscious patterns being played out, they no longer take place in an automatic fashion, because our very perception changes through the awareness, and if we begin engaging in the same tendencies, we catch ourselves and realize what we’re doing and why. We can learn how to realize our own part in things by dissociating from our experiences (not “in them” having them from an internal perspective) and viewing them instead from a detached and objective state. When we view our life from a second or third person perspective, we view the events from a distance (as another person would) and see ourselves not as the main character in our movie, but simply as one character in a greater story, and we can see ourselves in a different light as simply playing a role in acting out a common story.

Once we become aware and fully conscious in our life, no longer reactive and bound to habitual mindsets, we’re free of them and have the ability to make conscious decisions instead. Through our ability to choose who and how we’re going to be, what qualities we’re going to take on and express through, we begin creating ourselves in a more novel and unique manner. In this way we break free of the karma as unconscious states that dominate and bind us to a mindless process of creation, and we become fully empowered in our own life. The minute we decide to stop doing one thing as a natural response and role, we have to decide how we’re going to be and what we’re going to do instead. All habits are dissolved and transformed through awareness, choice, and replacing them with new patterns that create in a more intentional manner through a fully awake state.

Spiritual DNA – Our Souls Signature for Creating Reality

Physical DNA, which operates not only according to the same laws that govern all of life on the physical plane, but also to the laws of the spiritual or energetic realm of the mind. Not the mind as a product of brain function, as many people believe, but the mind as the subtle electromagnetic field of the body, also referred to as the soul. Just as physical DNA as a combination of information is used to generate the body, giving it very distinct genetic characteristics and behavioral tendencies, which are further developed through family dynamics of people who share the same DNA, the soul is comprised of energetic information as memory. The fully integrated memory of the soul maintains its basic structure as a paradigm formulated out of accumulated memory.  Experiences as  memory accumulated from multiple lifetimes gives the soul its basic disposition, temperament, and tendencies, which are continuously evolved through the experiences it acts to co-create and attain by how it enters into relationship with the body as corresponding (of the same frequency or nature) memory, which evolves it through the new attributes and emphasis it produces.

This soul memory, unlike genetic or hereditary memory of the race and culture (bloodline), doesn’t give us specific physical characteristics, though it does maintain energetic tension within the body which alters the physical appearance and potential for illness and disease manifested through energetic tension as a form of “programming”, but it’s the memory that forms our personal signature and the stories we tell by how we live our life and form our personality and identity. In terms of “soul expression”, biography forms our biology. The souls vibration or internal nature can be recognized through the story we naturally start telling from a very young age. Our personality is fully developed as the combination (all of life comes from combinations) of hereditary and individual (soul) memory. A new variation is formed out of the series of relationships that take place and as we begin forming our identity with our body and life conditions through adulthood, we steadily evolve our soul through continuous adaptations that alters and modifies our mental paradigm.

This soul memory as a mental paradigm that regenerates itself within a new body is what we commonly refer to as karma. Not in the sense of good or bad, or as independent behaviors as many think, but rather as patterns that produce much larger overall effects in terms of the perceptual filter it forms that determine how we interpret the events of our life to give them meaning. The meaning we give things forms a “theme” out of which our “life story” begins naturally formulating through our formative conditioning, which we begin cultivating early in life by how we naturally react to what happens to us, and what qualities the events of our life and the behavior of others activate within us that become the basis for our experiences in the present. These overall life patterns that we’re imprinted with at the soul level, recreate the same themes as a story that we begin telling ourselves about things that forms our reality, how we create our experiences, and how we behave (create outwardly) as a result.

Our spiritual DNA as soul memory produces the same perceptions and tendencies, the same “type” of thoughts and emotions, which naturally lend themselves to begin telling the same type of story about things as a means of making sense out of it. How we interpret things to give them meaning is how we begin developing ourselves through our own soul expression. As we begin expressing the same tendencies, we develop our personal reality out of the same mind-set or paradigm. This mental paradigm is what we carry forward into each succeeding life as an accumulative effect based on how it was evolved through each life experience. We start each life with the summation of all previous lives that form the basis of our mental paradigm, which sets up and initiates the same overall patterns as a “life theme” that determines what body (DNA) we resonate with and the natural circumstances our conditioning provides us with, that we then experience as “happening to us”, while at the same time possessing the mental filters and producing the behaviors that cause it. A life theme is usually something like not being loved, not wanted, not good enough, betrayal, abandonment, rejection, and so on. We then act out these themes at various levels throughout our life through numerous relationships. We attract to and pick the people who are of the same nature as we are and who will participate in acting out the same reality, giving us more of the experience we’re programmed with, and whose behavior can be readily interpreted to “mean” it. Then, through our interaction we simultaneously produce the behaviors that will cause it.

Example: if abandonment is our theme, then issues around abandonment are constantly being stimulated in us, both consciously and unconsciously. As they’re stimulate and brought forth in us we form behaviors around them, both as actual dynamics and behaviors designed to compensate or protect us from it, as well as the ones that initiate it. We readily engage only with those who have the same theme as a dynamic, and will act to not only abandon us, but respond appropriately to being abandoned by us. Then anything, any form of behavior or gesture that can be interpreted to mean we’re being abandoned, is how we experience it, while simultaneously abandoning them in the same way we imagine we’ve been abandoned as a retaliation or defensive mechanism (cause and effect). We play all roles in our theme simultaneously as the attitude and behaviors that result in us being abandoned, and respond in kind by abandoning them. Like always begets more of what’s like it. We don’t recognize our own tendencies when we do it to others because we tell ourselves a different story about what we’re doing and why that makes it seem different, or we do it unconsciously as a behavioral tendency that we do without direct awareness, that others perceive as us abandoning or not wanting them, and they respond in turn by abandoning us.

We continue living out of this same theme as a set of dynamic behaviors, some of which we’re aware of and others we’re not aware of, through all of the relationships in our life (parents and family, dating or marriage, work, friends, etc.) usually without ever realizing that we’re the ones producing it by the memory as a “thematic pattern” that we’re programmed with. We then, after creating many experiences of being abandoned and abandoning others (before they abandon us), begin identifying with our own self-perpetuated experiences, and our entire behavior as a style or way of being, is always acting out “abandonment” at all different levels of our life. We form our identity through the stories we tell about ourselves and others, and become thoroughly conditioned by that story, and therefore honestly don’t know how to tell a different story. When we try, we feel awkward, clueless, don’t know who we are or “how” to be, feel like we’re not being ourselves, phony, inauthentic, and so on, because everything about us and who we’ve created ourselves to be is based on telling that story. In this way, we can live our whole life out of the same karma as inherent memory, or several lifetimes for that matter, usually without ever realizing that that’s what we’re doing.

So our soul’s memory as our vibratory frequency forms the dynamic model of our mind as our mental programming. Our memories become the basis for our mental filters, which produce the perceptual patterns of our mind as an interpretation that determine “who” and “how” we become. Our mental paradigm forms our soul’s signature by how we express ourselves through feelings, thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. Our soul’s signature is the story we’re always in the process of telling by living it, and the people and situations we attract and enter into relationship with that are programmed with the same dynamics and will participate in co-creating the same type of story with us. Those who are programmed with a different type of story than we are, we can’t relate to, don’t feel compelled towards, or have an affinity with, and in many cases never really even come into contact with.

This continues as a self-perpetuating motion until we become aware of the fact that no one tells us what to think and how to feel, but us. Even as children we are always the ones creating our experiences by how we interpret things to give them meaning, and the stories we begin telling ourselves in an attempt to make sense of things, which acts to shape us by way of our own creation. Once we become aware of our own tendencies and how we’ve formed our identity around and out of them, and are truly willing to let go of our attachment to our story, we can begin learning how to tell a new story, and transform our lives as a result. Like all things, we can only consciously work with what we’re aware of. Through self-awareness, we begin realizing our own unconscious tendencies and can decide what we want to do instead and willfully act out that decision in a disciplined manner. It’s only through self-awareness and using our power to self-create that we can resolve our karma by breaking the unconscious patterns that govern our life, and intentionally form new ones that are more productive and creative, instead of detrimental and destructive. We have to begin taking control of our own mind and using our will to form our experiences with a sense of intention and purpose, and begin telling a new type of story that will systematically transform us into a new type of person.

What is Consciousness?

Like all words that represent ideas and concepts, the term “consciousness” can mean something different based on who’s using it and in what context they’re using it. One of the most fundamental ways that we miscommunicate without even realizing that that’s what we’re doing is by assuming that words mean the same thing to everybody. The true meaning of words are what image or idea forms in the imagination of the person speaking and using it to communicate an idea, and the person hearing or listening to it. We like to think that the dictionary gives us a standardized interpretation for words, yet this is still only meaningful for those who actually learn language from a dictionary. The dictionary states that consciousness is “being awake and self-aware”, yet we are also “awake and self-aware” in unconscious states of our dreams, though upon awakening and changing states, we can’t remember our dreams. Yet dreams, like all reality is created by our consciousness.

So consciousness can be more accurately described as a “state of mind” that produces the very reality that it’s then aware of. There are many different states of awareness and the realities they produce, so in the ultimate sense, these terms are relative to each other. What we call our reality is based on our state of mind, and varies according to our state of mind. We have what we call 3-minds (or 3 aspects of one mind) as a way of classifying not only different fundamental states, but also as the different functions that are a natural behavior of that state, which exist simultaneously on three different dimensions (levels of awareness), which are all an interwoven part of a greater whole, and function as a “single being” while remaining somewhat “unaware” of each other. The subconscious mind is continuously active (never sleeps) and runs all of biological processes of the body from the moment of conception until the death of the body. What we refer to as the “conscious mind”, which is attributed largely to “brain function”, doesn’t even become active as “individual thought that forms our concept of ourselves and the world” through our own thinking and perceiving until adolescence, yet we are fully “awake and self-aware” as children and as a baby, and even as embryos still in the process of developing in the womb, all of which are simply different “states of consciousness” and different “types” of awareness.

What we think of as memory is the product of consciousness and is also “state based”. This is very easy to understand when we simply realize that when we fall asleep (change states) – the self-conscious (awake) mind is the only aspect of the mind that sleeps (loses awareness) – making the subconscious the only aspect that’s still active and therefore dominant, and the only aspect creating reality. We dream by moving in and out of a variety of realities all night long with vivid and intense sensations and emotions, yet as soon as we change states and move from a relaxed state to an “active” state, we steadily lose memory of our dreams. Usually, once we’re up and moving around for an hour or two, even the dreams we initially remember fade to the point that we can’t vividly recall them, and we completely forget our dreams. So we live in whole realities as parallel dimensions that we’re basically unaware of in our “waking state”. Likewise, when we meditate, and we calm and subdue the conscious “thinking mind”, again making the subconscious dominant (because it’s always active) , we can have all sorts of insights and realizations that are very clear and vivid as a form of “direct experience”, and as soon as we change states and move from inner awareness to outer awareness, they slip away and we have trouble remembering them. When frightened, scared, overwhelmed, or having a traumatic experience of some form, though it’s intense and very vivid at the time we’re having it, as soon as it’s passed and we calm down and relax or change states, we forget the actual events that took place and only remember the feeling it gave us and the story that we began telling ourselves because of it. It’s not the actual events that traumatize us, but what we tell ourselves about what they “mean” that traumatize us.

Because what we call the “conscious mind” (awareness of an outer reality) is our waking state, the aspect that’s largely a function of the brain, and what forms our identity “as” our body and the outer material world, we tend to think that consciousness is a product of the brain and the result of the material world. Yet consciousness is what forms the brain (and the whole body) that it then acts to operate. All life forms, the human body and the brain, are designed and constructed out of primordial intelligence as information that has a “self-organizing mechanism” inherent in it that constructs life-forms from a seed of encoded information. This level of consciousness literally constructs the body that it then inhabits and performs all the “natural and automatic” biological functions of the body, which are attributed to the subconscious mind. It’s called “subconscious” because it operates fully without our direct awareness, and forms all of our conditioning as a form of training and development, laying the foundation out of which the self-conscious, brain aspect of consciousness as “thinking in verbal terms as a form of internal dialogue” begins. This memory, from conception till about four or five years old, which most adults have very vague or no memory of at all, can be tuned into and recalled fully through various state of hypnosis, which delves into the memory of the “unconscious mind”.

The subconscious mind, which is fully dominant up until the age of 7 or 8, then predominant from 7 to 14 (we develop in 7 year increments) establishes our formative conditioning which becomes the “perceptual lens” the developing self-conscious mind “looks through” to perceive the outer world as an “awareness of it”. How we perceive and interpret the outer world as a way of making sense of it and fitting it into what becomes our “story about things” is a direct result of the subconscious mind which “projects onto the environment”, or forms the energy field around our body (extending several feet away) that we literally use by “looking through it” to perceive outwardly what remains hidden from us (we have no direct awareness of) inwardly. So what we call an “outward awareness” is actually a reflection that’s allowing us to see what’s “in us” as our mental paradigm. Because we’re unaware of the subconscious mind as our paradigm or “mental model of the world”, we don’t realize that it’s what’s producing what we call the outer reality that we’re then using to classify the self-conscious mind as being “conscious and aware of”.

This becomes easier to understand when we realize that our perception of the outer world is based on our paradigm as a belief-system, where we can only “see” and cognitively recognize as being “real”, whatever matches our belief-system, and can be explained, described, and validated or justified using it. Whatever can’t or doesn’t match our belief system (model), we honestly can’t see, and so it doesn’t exist as “real” to us. It’s only by changing our mental model of the world (subconscious mind) that we’re able to perceive new and different aspects of reality, which of course were there all the time, but we simply weren’t cognitive of them. Again, all “reality” is a projection of our paradigm which is based on our state of mind as a vibratory frequency that creates a “filtering system” as a means of reorganizing the outer reality to make it appear a certain way as the expression or vibratory match to our ingrained or programed patterning.

Our belief system also acts as our primary mental filter, which edits all incoming information by comparing and contrasting the information to it, only allowing in or being willing to consider what matches it and can be logically, rationally, or reasonably incorporated into it. Because of this editing feature of the conscious mind, radical paradigm shifts can be difficult if not impossible to produce, and evolution as a form of transformation which only comes by way of a paradigm shift (change in the vibratory structure of the mind), can be an arduously long and slow process (as all natural evolution is). Many people, especially those who quit studying and learning after graduating from school and live out of the same knowledge base for the rest of their life, fail to grow at all in the real sense of the word, and live primarily out of their own opinions and the opinions of others that they accept an adopt as their own.

So when we look at it in this light and from this perspective, consciousness has as its vehicle the mind as a specialized field of information, and the mind has the physical body as its vehicle in order to express by creating personalized versions of reality within what we call the material plane. Consciousness is the primordial intelligence that forms all of life and the Life-Force Energy that activates and animates it with a systematic growth process and personality. It’s the very information that becomes the building blocks for all of life, that’s often referred to as the “unified field” of archaic ideas or the Akashic field populated with ideas in their potential form and the memories produced by all minds as the personalized expression of those universal archetypes that creates experiences out of the “reality” they create. We know that energy and matter are equivalents of each other and therefore exchangeable. Energy as consciousness is the same thing as matter, but in different states as “degrees of consciousness”. All of life, on all planes of existence, exist in a state of polarity as opposites that form extremes of the same thing, separated only by degrees of vibration. There are four primary “states of matter”: charged or electrified plasma (invisible energy field); gaseous (atral light); fluid (etheric); and solid (material body). Again, all are simply different states of the same thing. So the consciousness that “charges” or programs matter, organizes it into a living form that self-expresses forming an outer projection as a reality that’s actually an inner reflection. All forms as archetypes have an inherent “story” in them as the reality they naturally produce through activity of some form, which is what “Mythology” is based on. Mythology is a system of classification that correlates states of consciousness with a personality, identity, and destiny as the type of story (outer reality) it naturally produces and lives out of as a means of self-expression that’s also self-creative.

The information contained in a seed (a code for a design), is activated by an invisible Life-Force energy that stimulates and causes it to begin growing  through self-regeneration by duplicating itself (cellular mitosis), by absorbing and assimilating elements from the environment (earth, water, air, and sunlight), accompanied by a etheric hologram as a form of spatial map that not only “locates the cell within the body”, but also switches off some information in its DNA code, while switching on other information, causing the cell to become specialized as a certain type of cell necessary to become the heart, liver, or some other aspect of the overall body that it’s an inherent part of. The body is completely generated as a construction, organization, and living entity out of a mysterious invisible force. This same invisible force then inhabits it (exists as one with it) and gives it life as the mind. The mind of the body, which is an invisible force that both surrounds and encapsulates the body while permeating it, forms an egg shaped energy field that extends several feet from the body, interacting with (while ultimately producing) the outer environment in which the body forms its experience of living through an “outer awareness” of itself in everything else. The consciousness of the body, which we are both aware and unaware of at the same time, is what produces the reality of the body as a projection.

All reality as we know it is a creation of the mind and consciousness. All matter is organized into various forms and given life as varying levels and degrees of consciousness. It’s only through consciousness that we experience ourselves within the outer world of what we call reality. The outer world is formed (or reformed) as a reflection or creation of the inner (invisible) world. The subconscious mind, the level of consciousness just below direct awareness of the conscious mind, is the perceptual lens we look through that makes the outer world take on the appearance that it does. The same outer reality appears different to every mind that’s perceiving it. Perception is a personal creation as the unconscious projection of the individual mind. Out of a universal consciousness comes the individual consciousness as an archetypal matrix that forms one possible variation out of an infinite number of possibilities. The universal consciousness exists in a state of infinite potential, in which one possibility is expressed an made into a 3-D virtual reality by the individual mind, which by turning off some information while turning on other information, forms a specialized function in a greater living whole.

So consciousness is not a product of function of the brain, although the “self-conscious aspect” does arise out of the brain as a “brain-function” that’s really a state of consciousness “operating through the brain” to regulate and animate the body through the spinal cord, nervous system, endocrine glands, and major organs of the body. Consciousness is the universal intelligence as vibration that structures all matter as a dense aspect of itself into a living form as an avatar that creates a dynamic living matrix that we call the objective outer reality. Consciousness in various states as a dynamic interwoven system of vibratory frequencies all interacting in the same living matrix, is ALL there is. Everything in the material world is contained within the Universal mind as its creation. All of reality exists only through our ability to perceive it and conceive of it through our mind. In this sense, perception truly “is” reality.

Forgiveness – The Key to Spiritual Healing

The most basic principle that’s operating all the time, in every aspect of life, is that whatever we “blend with energetically” (mentally, emotionally, or physically) we “take on” and integrate as a form of “shared” consciousness. We most often take on other people’s energy due to the fact that it impacts us in some way. The nature of the impact it has on us determines what type of story we start telling ourselves about it as a way of making it mean something. As we give meaning to our experiences we begin building our identity around and by way of them. We’re always in the process of shaping ourselves by way of what we think about, dwell in obsessively, and give life to inside of us by replaying it in our mind as a memory. As we co-create an experience with someone or an event of some kind, we form an interpretation of it through our very “perception” of it. As we think about something creating an inner reality out of it, we’re simultaneously creating our “self” through that reality by identifying with our own self-created experiences. How we interpret something gives it the meaning and significance it has for us, and forms the basis for what type of reality we create in our mind that replaces the “actual” objective reality with a “subjective” one, making it personal. Reality itself, as events, behaviors, dramas, situations, conditions, and so on, have no meaning in and of themselves, but merely become the basis for forming meaning by how it’s interpreted by the individual perceiving it as a means of “experiencing it”. While we can reasonably conclude that we don’t create or manifest other people or outward situations, we absolutely create “how we perceive and thereby experience them”. Our experience of reality is a personal creation formed exclusively in our mind as the natural creative power of our soul. All of our experiences that have a significant emotional impact of some sort, become our primary memories as interpretations of the events of our life. As we create our own memories, we simultaneously create ourselves by way of our own creations. The memories we accumulate over a period of time become “themes” out of which we create all of our present experiences to be of the same nature and meaning as our past experiences. This “theme” as a certain “type of meaning” forms the basis for our perceptual lens that we consistently look through in order to see the same thing in everyone and everything by how we interpret it. As we consistently form the same type of  experiences over and over, we continue telling the same type of story about things, and create a consistent and congruent version of reality as a result. As we perceive and experience the outer world by processing it internally through the commentary we form around it as imaginary thoughts,  we create a “sense of ourselves” through our own story, and shape ourselves by way of it. Whatever we continue to give life to by replaying memories over and over, we continue to use to define ourselves, and we tune and magnetize ourselves to that theme as a life-drama, where we’re constantly attracting it and being attracted to it. This “attraction factor” isn’t a product of the conscious mind, per say, but rather of the subconscious mind, which means it’s energetic in nature, based on vibratory frequency and operates in our life without our direct awareness. Whenever we meet someone of the same vibratory frequency, who will naturally act to co-create more of the same type of experiences, they stand out, we notice them, and have a reaction to them. Due to this, we naturally begin gravitating towards each other, and eventually end up in an actual interaction of some sort where a relationship forms – as a friend, colleague, companion, lover, etc. – and we act together to form a joint experience of the same thematic nature that we share in common. vesica The meaning we give things, like the mind itself, is 3-fold in nature, and creates on three levels and scales simultaneously. Whatever meaning we give something, means something about others, the way the world is in general, and about us in relationship with it. As we perceive and form an interpretation of other people’s behavior, we’re perceiving ourselves through or by way of that same interpretation. As we perceive others to be, we simultaneously perceive the world to be the same way as a larger version or as the stage in which it all takes place. Whatever it means about a specific person it means about “the way people are”, and about the way the world is in general. As we form “generalizations” about the meaning of life it serves to form our expectations and what we naturally look for in all situations. We form mental and emotional filters that skew our ability to accurately see in an objective manner. We only see and respond to what matches our model of the world, and fail to recognize what doesn’t. All the while, because these are our own creations as our thoughts and emotions, we’re forming ourselves to be of the same nature and likeness, as a response or defense, and as an interaction where our themes are always playing out at the unconscious level. Our perceptions form our “criteria for judgment”, and are used equally to judge ourselves through our perception of ourselves within our own story about things. So when we enter into a relationship or become a part of a situation, where natural events and behaviors take place, and we filter them through our mental paradigm and interpret them to mean something so we can experience them through a story-line, we act “on ourselves” through another or greater reality, and continue shaping ourselves through a primary for of self-expression produced by our mental paradigm as a filtering system. Through mental and emotional filters, we sort through and select only some of the elements involved, while completely excluding and ignoring others, we embellish and accentuate some, while downplaying and explaining away others, and change what’s emphasized based on the means we’re shaping it to, and by completely reorganizing and reformulating it, we create a personal version of what happened and why, that we live out of as a means of using it to define and determine us as a certain “type of person”. Because this is a natural function of our mind, and we do it automatically without intentional awareness, we form an idea that others are doing it “to us”, instead of “cooperating and participating” in helping us do it to us. Relationships we form with others provide the basis for acting out certain types of drama that are self-perpetuated at the subconscious level, and act as a mirror for allowing us to see what’s operating in us that we’re unaware of. Not as singular events within larger ones, that we grab onto and begin obsessing over as what we imagine we need to forgive in the other, but as dramatic life themes that we’re always in the process of playing out in all areas of our life without actual awareness of what we’re doing and why. So to think that someone “did something to us” that we’re having trouble moving past because we can’t seem to let it go and continue dwelling in it as a form of suffering and mental anguish, and fashioning ourselves by way of it, is a self-created illusion that’s delusional. Afterlife - alien planet - DMT - stargate We are the sole creator of all of our experiences. We attract to us the fulfillment of our own thematic dramas in others and the conditions and circumstances that are ideal for playing them out. As we play them out, both unconscious and conscious aspects are at work, and we’re constantly sensing the underlying motives at play, and making constant decisions as adjustments based on what we’re sensing is necessary to keep it playing out. As we sense the underlying motives of others, we realize those same motives in ourselves as the complementary component which is what keeps us drawn in and actively participating in it. We justify things in whatever way allows us to “glaze over”, ignore, or build it into an “agreed upon lie”, and we keep on going with it. We agree to maintain the relationship knowing, that in order to do so we have to compromise ourselves, agree to ignore or accept certain things that we shouldn’t, and continue allowing certain things that we don’t like, and we keep telling ourselves whatever it is we need to in order to do that through a form of negotiation. We begin lying to ourselves and building an illusion as a lie in place of the actual reality as the objective truth. Then an event of some sort with a strong emotional realization takes place, and shatters the illusion to the point where we can no longer maintain it, and we have to face it. We can’t pretend any more. We can’t call it what we wish or want it to be, but rather have to accept it as it actually is. This moment of shattering a lie, comes as betrayal, disappointment, dishonesty, violence, grief, shame, disgust, and so on, that not only reveals the truth we sensed and negotiated all along, but also as what breaks the bond and creates a disconnect that can no longer be remedied by pretending. In these moments we have to face the truth, but the truth is not what we think it is, the truth is coming face to face with the truth about ourselves. The realization that we we’re sensing what was going on all along and chose to negotiate away our integrity and lie to ourselves in order to maintain it and willingly continue playing it out. We come to the realization that “this type of stuff always happens to me”, because this is the way people are, and the way the world is. Usually, without ever realizing that it came about because it’s the way we are. We were willing to participate by compromising ourselves, not through clear rational thinking and objective observation, but through emotional attachments, inner compulsions, and a strong sense of need that we blindly mistook for love and trust. The only actual betrayal was to ourselves by our self. The only real dishonesty came by first being dishonest with ourselves. The wounds we encountered were ultimately self-inflicted. The only disgust and hatred was because of what this means about us. But all of this is very hard to accept, and even harder to own, and thereby realize that the only forgiveness involved, is our ability to stop projecting onto others, and use it instead to gain self-realization of our own unconscious tendencies, and begin working on ourselves to rectify and redeem ourselves. The only person that truly needs to be forgiven in our own life creations is ourselves, because we’re the ones negotiating its terms within ourselves. DNA and the Pineal In this sense to forgive is to forget, not only the other person involved in the co-creation of a self-produced drama, but also to quit living out of memories that act to ultimately produce our experiences in the present to be of the same nature as our experiences of the past. To realize that relationship of all kinds between our inner self and the outer world simply acts to show us parts of ourselves that we’re normally unaware of. To gain knowledge of ourselves as it’s being reflected back to us by others as an interaction that’s of a “cause and effect” nature. To see in ourselves our own methods for negotiating away our morality in favor of a desired illusion about things. To be able to realize our own motives for “selling our soul” to another, submitting and allowing ourselves to be controlled by agreeing to remain unconscious in order to maintain the relationship. Everything we perceive as happening to us, is actually happening “by us”. We are always creating our experiences by how we look at, interpret, and cooperatively participate or contrast and refuse to participate. We’re only attack-able or able to be hurt to the exact extent that we attack and hurt ourselves by not being willing to see the true reality going on beneath the surface, and therefore never learning from our own experiences. All experience is designed to bring self-awareness that allows for deeper realizations around the awareness. To perceive needing to forgive another for what they did to you, is showing you that you’re choosing to remain unconscious of your own creative power and part in things. When we learn to use all of our experiences as a mirror where we remove our focus from the other person or event, and examine ourselves in relation to them, we become more aware of our own internal processes and what it is that motivating those processes. We can come to realize how we negotiate and manipulate situations as a way of co-creating them. We can come to realize in very definite terms, that the very people we imagine we need to forgive for the pain and suffering they caused us, we should actually thank for the realization they allowed. We can come to realize the truth about ourselves and begin embracing our creative power to effectively bring what we were previously unaware of into the full light of day, where we can begin working with it to correct it, not in the outer situation, but in the inner situation producing it. In the spiritual sense of the mind and soul, those who cause controversy and serve to challenge us in very distinct ways, are worthy opponents that cooperate in creating the joint experiences necessary to learn by. As we learn, and we apply what we learn to create, we grow and develop ourselves as the means for spiritual healing. Dr. Linda Gadbois  Integrative Health Consultant and Spiritual Mentor

Vibration as Patterns of Energy – Fractal Patterns and the Soul’s Personal Signature for Creating

Perception is Reality

The nature of vibration is a sound frequency that shapes light into imagery and living ideas as potential scenarios. Vibration forms geometric patterns which structure the material world at the subatomic level. DNA, blood, and body tissue, for example, are formed out of pentagons and hexagons which are combined to form composite structures. All material matter in its most fundamental state is made up of photons as visible light that has zero mass and charge. Light, of course is invisible to the eye, so matter as a form of some kind is comprised of a non-material substance and is mostly invisible. An atom is a composition of subatomic particles that can either form into a series of particles revolving around a nucleus, or transform into a wave-form as more of a misty, cloud-like impression. All atoms possess both particle and wave properties, and only exist as a particle (something specific) when being observed or measured by a mind. When not being observed, it reverts back to a wave form that exists in a “potential state”. Vibration as subtle energy or essence, has a self-organizing mechanism that shapes matter (light) into forms that have distinct properties, modes of consciousness, and behave in specific ways while engaging in certain types of activities.

The structures that in-form a material body as a living entity, which is primarily geometric in nature, determine its quality and level of consciousness as a form of personality or personal signature that forms the basis for its individuality and unique characteristics. Subtle energy is the consciousness that inhabits and gives life to the material body, in which it first fashions (makes the cellular structure), and then consciously inhabits and uses as a vehicle for expressing through by forming an initial or parent pattern as a frequency or energetic signature, much like a theme that further shaped by a personal style, that continues to express and thereby create out of that same thematic pattern, forming all perception of reality as an offspring or analogous version of the same nature and likeness. These smaller fractal patterns as offspring of the parent pattern, form in a spiraling motion as expanding outward from center (projecting and superimposing), providing and energetic template that restructures the sensory reality its interacting with to vibrate at the same frequency, and then absorbs the corresponding reality as an “experience” that’s a form of regeneration, replication, and propagation.

The parent (original) pattern exists as a thematic idea, that extends outward as a mental projection, superimposing the vibratory frequency as an “organizing mechanism” onto everything outside of itself, reshaping the basic elements involved into the same type of idea, as an analogy to itself, then as it plays out its own idea about life, it captures its own pattern or projected frequency as an experience of itself that produces feedback, that’s absorbed into itself, sustaining and nourishing itself with more of the same frequency or idea, which is acquired as a memory. The soul-mind acts to rearrange the elemental properties of light in the outer world into the same pattern or idea as a corresponding vibration or quality of consciousness (through resonance), and sees (perceives) itself through its own arrangement, then absorbs that idea back into itself as its own self-created experience. In this way the soul acts to create all of its life experiences out of its vibratory frequency as a primary form of self-expression, creating experiences of the same nature that it then acquires as memories that it uses to continue creating itself as a form of self-programming out of the same vibratory frequency.

multidimensional

Whatever frequency we vibrate at, which is a distinct level and quality of consciousness as a paradigm or mental model of the world, we create more of as a projection (directed attention) and resonance that creates (interprets and composes) the outer to match (be of the same nature) the inner, creating our own personal experiences as a primal form of self-expression. Perception is an interpretation as a reformulated version of an outer neutral reality (elements) to conform to an idea as a thematic story that produces smaller patterns of the same type as the mental paradigm forming them. The object or material world being observed, and the individual mind doing the observing are a part of the same event or “reality”. How the outer reality appears to us as a form of interpretation, is a product of our own mind.

Vibration is a frequency as a range of vibration that forms a structured model as a mental paradigm, which modifies light (matter) into the same type of pattern as an offspring or natural product of the pattern itself. It doesn’t do this by changing the actual objective elements of what we call a shared, outer reality, but by changing how it “appears” in terms of the meaning we give it as the means for telling a story about it that creates how we experience it. We only notice and abstract from the outer environment and reorganize into a new composition what’s necessary to form our story about it. Our mental paradigm shapes how we experience all of life as the basic creative ability of the mind as a natural form of self-expression, much like an artist interprets their subject by how they “represent it” through their own personal style. How we “see the world” is how we see ourselves within that world through the relationship we form with it. The same model creates both our inner and outer perception. The outer is the equivalent reflection of the inner, which is produced by the vibrational structure of the mind as our mode of consciousness.

Subtle energy as vibration or “mental states”, organizes and transforms photons as energetic essence into the indigenous patterns of that vibration. Material substance is produced (created) by the concentration and organization of consciousness into living (moving) patterns of a distinct nature or personality. The nature of the patterns as a living entity forms classifications or species, which are further endowed with distinct personalities and characteristics as natural behaviors that comes as self-expression and creation. As we express through perception, which, through resonance, changes the appearance of the material world to take on the same image (form) and likeness (qualities) as the mind producing them. The mind as the individual soul only resonates (acts to vibrate) with the same frequencies as “qualities with characteristics” in the outer world, which changes the active and receptive properties within the circumstances, re configuring them into a new version that matches the mind producing it. Energy as vibration directed into material objects as attention with intention, through resonance, stimulates only what’s of the same nature as a vibration, entering into it, becoming one with it as sympathetic induction, and effects it, altering its state to match the state interacting with it, forming coherence (equalizes) as harmony which modifies the purely material aspect into the pattern or quality of reality as the mind that’s organizing it.

Quantum-Energy

Matter, as photons of light held together by invisible forces to form bodies (objects), doesn’t have consciousness (self-awareness and will) of its own, and acts merely as the passive receptor of individual consciousness as vibration, and shape-shifts according to the vibration inhabiting it. This is self-evident by the fact that we always see whatever we expect to see in a situation, and we act to trigger or stimulate the same state in others, which changes their behavior to match ours and they cooperate in acting out the same idea with us. While their physical form itself remains the same, technically speaking, how they appear and the nature of the energy driving their behavior can be strikingly different based on what state of mind they’re embodying. The mind only sees what it wants to see, and can only see what can be perceived through its mental model. It’s only capable of seeing what matches it. The nature and character of the individual produces their own version and experience of reality as the natural product of their mind.

If an idea exists outside of our model or mental paradigm, and we don’t have the ability to shape it into a mental concept as an internal reality or working model, we literally can’t conceive of it. It’s not real to us, and we reject it or argue against it. We can’t understand it, because it makes no sense to us. It’s only by being able to form a mental concept of something as “real”, understandable and therefore possible, that we can also perceive it in the outer world. In this way all “reality” (what’s real to us) is created by the mind as a unique and individual possibility. All of life as we know it is a product of our level and quality of consciousness. The mind (individual) literally produces a unique version of reality. Objective reality as nature, the original creation, or a dynamic living matrix of a broader range of frequencies all interwoven and existing within each other, is created by the universal mind of mass consciousness, and produces all the frequencies necessary for an infinite number of possibilities as potential realities, which are produced systematically by the individual mind.

Matter as light exists as a neutral aspect of consciousness, and is “impregnated” by consciousness, which in-forms it by shaping it into the pattern of the consciousness animating it. Matter, as photons of light, shape-shifts based on interaction (stimulation) as observation by the individual mind perceiving it. It forms into a complementary form as a correlation with the mind. Matter only exists as “something specific” when being perceived and interpreted (reformed into a correspondence) by the mind. It has no existence (specific form) outside of the mind. If a mind is not observing or perceiving it, it doesn’t exist “as” something, but rather turns back into a wave of potential as an impressionistic form that contains all forms within it in their potential state. The act of observing and the object being observed are a part of the same event or creative process. Matter is an illusion that caters and conforms to whatever mind is interacting with it. All of reality as we know it is an illusion as a possible variation produced by the minds ability to change the appearance of things to be whatever we believe, need, or want them to be. Our perception of the material world is an interpretation of what’s “real for us” and therefore “true”. The only thing that’s true is what we say is true and can be perceived by us as being real. The only absolute truth is the realization that all of life as we know it is an illusion or personal version created by the mind itself. Just as all of life comes from and exists within the Universal Mind of God, the individual life comes from and exists within the individual mind of the soul.
