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.

How to Release and Erase Memories of People and Events

Memories are something that only exist in our mind as a mental construct and replay over and over due to the intense emotion associated with them. All of what becomes actual memory that we can vividly recollect in emotional detail years later comes from significant emotional events (SEE) that had a powerful impact on us in some way. These events and the memories we formed of them served to change us in the most fundamental sense, and as we continued to live out of them, they served to shape our identity and “who” we became because of them.

Memory and emotion are always connected due to the fact that the event caused a strong emotional reaction in us, and those emotions served to shape the nature of the experience we formed as an interpretation of some kind. Our “experience” doesn’t come as an objective recollection of the event itself, but how we processed and internalized it as a means of creating our experience of it. As we internalize an intense event, we make it “mean” something by the story we tell ourselves about it in an attempt to put it in perspective as a means of trying to make sense out of it. We take an existing reality as a strong emotional event and reprocess it to form a new version of it as our interpretation that gives it personal  meaning.

The meaning we give something as the means of experiencing it forms the basis for the storyline we begin telling ourselves that serve to shape us as a person. We create our identity out of the memories we constantly play out in one way or another as the means of producing more of the same type of experiences. They become thematic templates for producing instant interpretations as our perceptual lens and filtering system. They give us a form of referencing system to instantly interpret all new and similar type of events to mean the same thing. As we walk through life we’re always assessing and summing up situations by looking through the thematic filters of our past memories by saying “this means the same things as that”. We consistently shape the present to be a continuation of the past and a means of predicting the future.

We walk into any situation with preconceived notions and expectations of what’s going to happen, and we use a dynamic series of mental and emotional filters to only notice, abstract, and rearrange the information in a way that creates the experience of our expectations. We’re always saying to ourselves . . . this means I’m not wanted; that means I’m not loved; I’m not good enough; people can’t be trusted; life’s unfair; I can’t ever get ahead, and so on. We interpret any number of behaviors or actions to mean the same thing as those same types of actions meant to us in the past. Our memories provide us with a template for producing a congruent and consistent experience of reality that follows a major theme.

Because emotion is the key factor in forming all significant memories, it also acts as the “hook” that keeps us compulsively attached to them and that serves as a “trigger” for activating them. As we’re triggered emotionally we produce an immediate reaction that doesn’t require us to think about it in order to form a new appraisal. All reactions are instant and produce unconscious actions in us. We instantly access and replay the emotion, mindset, and behaviors of the memory being activated. As we’re triggered emotionally we literally go unconscious and act out of a delirious state.

Anytime we’re overly emotional or “sensitive” to the emotions being projected by others, we live our life out of memories of the past as automated patterns and create while unconscious and not utilizing our higher capacities to create in a self-aware, well thought out and intentional manner. Emotionally reactive people are unconscious in the most basic sense and are constantly being controlled and determined by whatever it is they’re reacting to. Their whole life is determined by and becomes a replay of their formative conditioning.

Subconscious and Self-Conscious Mind

What we refer to as our subconscious is the creative aspect of our mind that forms our experiences of reality. It’s the “passive” aspect of our mind that’s “receptive” in nature; while the self-conscious aspect is “active” and self-aware, and has the ability to “give direction” to the subconscious as a way of forming new patterns of interpretation and behaviors. The subconscious is “experiential” in nature, which means its “programmed” with pictures, images, and scenarios that it uses as a metaphorical template for perceiving reality and producing all of our natural behaviors that come in an automatic way without us having to think about them.

The subconscious is emotionally driven and prompted to take action based on impulses and strong emotional charges. It works to create our entire experience of reality and ourselves out of memories of experiences that are emotionally intense. We literally “act on ourselves” to program ourselves for creating reality based on memories we form and continue to live out of, and the emotional states they naturally act to produce and maintain. Anyone who lives out of memories of their past is literally delusional. They’re living a life of illusions that they themselves are creating without direct awareness of what they’re doing.

The Power of Identity

The truly elusive and compelling thing about our memories is that we’ve actually “used them” as the means of shaping ourselves by way of them. As we had impacting experiences and tried to make sense of them by explaining them to give them meaning, we simultaneously identified with our own imaginary experiences. As we form an internal experience in our mind as the “meaning” of events, we “sense ourselves” within our own self-created experiences, and we make it mean the same thing about us. Whatever we tell ourselves about why something happened and what it means about another person or the way life is, it also means about us in relationship with it, and we begin identifying with our own story about things.

As we shape our identity out of our self-created memories and story about things, we need to keep telling them in order to know who we are. We replay the same scripts over and over in our mind. For this reason giving up our story can be quite difficult. This is especially true when we’re not clear on what story we want to tell in its place. Often when we give up our story or lose what we’ve shaped ourselves around, we don’t know how to “be” different. In order to tell a new story, we have to give up our memories of the past and develop new ways of being. Without a distinct sense of purpose and direction this can seem a bit daunting and overwhelming.

We become so used to living out of an automated state over time that having to actually make conscious decisions, select new ideas, and develop ourselves in new ways can seem dry causing us to struggle with motivation in maintaining them, especially when compared to the intensity of our emotional past. It’s the emotions attached to an idea that makes it compelling and infuses it with a sense of passion and drama. Emotions act like drugs in our body, altering our state of mind, and when their maintained in a habitual manner, become addictive, causing us to literally crave them.

In order to take over the process of conscious self-creation we have to exercise the higher capacities of our mind to create in an original fashion. This requires not only truly deciding to let go of your past conditioning, but also deciding how you’re going to be instead. What kind of person are you going to create yourself to be and what kind of story are you going to tell by how you live your life? And then, once you make those decisions you have to learn how to intentionally utilize your imagination in order to both instruct your subconscious to release and let go of memories while simultaneously replacing them with new ones. You have to learn how to use your conscious, self-aware mind to direct and guide your subconscious on what to create as a new idea.

Because your subconscious operates out of memory as imaginary experiences, you have to develop new ideas as actual experiences that are vivid in sensory terms. You have to create what you want as a form a “virtual memory” that provides your subconscious with a pattern to produce natural characteristics and behaviors out of. You have to practice embodying new ways of being as a means of training your body to new behaviors. You have to give your subconscious new emotional memories and form new habits through consistent and repetitive practice.

As you let go of past memories you have to replace the void it creates with new ones, or you have to “re-imagine” existing ones to form a new experience of them. If you leave a void, your subconscious will automatically draw something in as a means of knowing what to do. The subconscious can’t make decisions as to what to use as a means of creating and relies solely on memories as habitual patterns and tendencies. It’s “seeded” with suggestions from the conscious mind that it then converts into a reality in the imagination and uses for creating an outer reality of the same nature. The subconscious is symbolic in nature, which means that all imaginary experiences intentionally produced as a desire for creating as an outer reality, are utilized as thematic ideas. So it won’t produce the exact same reality the way you imagined it, but rather adapt the idea to the current situation and environment to produce a corresponding version of the same idea.

Power of the Imagination

While many people believe imaginary processes are an illusion and not “real”, they’re actually the means for not only giving the subconscious direction for creating as an actual experience, but also the means by which we direct the forces of the natural world. As we think, we imagine and direct energy into the “forms” of our thoughts, giving them life inside of us. All “actual memories” are in fact created by “re-imagining” an event, and are established as a modified version based on how they’re interpreted, and consistently replayed in the imagination. All imaginary processes are how we use our conscious mind to communicate with and direct our subconscious, which uses them as “symbolic ideas” for creating as an experience of a similar nature.

Another common mistake people make is in thinking that memories aren’t created “in” or by the imagination, but are an actual recollection of objective events, that they equally interpreted in a neutral and objective fashion. Yet memories are based on how we “formed our experience” of events based on the emotional state we were in at the time and as an “interpretation”. We reform the elements of an event in our mind as the means of telling a story out of the emotion we were feeling. Then the memory is recalled and replayed in the faculty of the imagination, forming our perceptual lens as an instant interpretation, and as the means of producing more experiences of the same kind, while altering the memory to some degree every time it’s recalled based on how it’s adapted to the current situation to produce a variable. Memories are actually “living creations” of the soul itself and they consistently undergo an evolutionary process through adaptation and modification.

Due to the fact that the subconscious is emotionally motivated to perform certain actions, if we have a fear or apprehension around letting go of or erasing memories, it’ll either hang onto them out of a fear of letting go, or it’ll create an experience that’s scary, stressful, and fear based. The emotion itself “is” the directive for the subconscious to create “as” an experience. The image used is just the pattern as a process, and the emotion is how that pattern is shaped into an experience. The pattern is simply what’s used to express the emotion attached to it as the reality that invokes more of the same emotion. The subconscious naturally moves into anything that’s presented as being pleasurable, and away from anything that’s painful. So if change is presented as a hard or painful struggle of some kind, the subconscious will avoid it at all costs, and work to sabotage any willful effort to accomplish it.

The scope of this article is the process of letting go of memories and not the instruction on how to create new ones, which I have written several other articles on, and can be accessed by using the search feature on my website. If you’re feeling the least bit apprehensive or unsure of yourself in choosing to let go of your past in order to create a new you, then you should spend some time exploring the nature of your attachment to your story of the past and wait until it becomes an exciting and liberating idea. Letting go of the “known” in favor of the “unknown” can be terrifying to those who are new to the idea of conscious self-creation. There’s a great sense of security in familiarity and staying in your comfort zone, even when it’s been traumatizing and painful.

Letting go of the Past – the Process

Once you’ve decided to honestly let go of your past story and feel excited about creating yourself anew, you can start by selecting the memories you want to erase. These can either be ones that were incurred with a specific person or a certain type memories usually represented by a phase or period in your life. You want to become clear on which ones they are because it requires a hypnotic state and an imaginary process where you have to use your conscious mind to direct your subconscious on what to do. If you’re uncertain or vague in anyway, you’ll lose your thought process as soon as you become totally relaxed.

Once you’ve decided, you want to make sure you fully abstract the “life lesson” the memories held for you in terms of what they helped you to realize so you can retain that knowledge and not repeat past mistakes.

Meditative  Process:

  • Get into a comfortable position, either sitting upright in a chair with both feet flat on the ground, preferably touching, relaxing your hands on your lap or thighs, palms down; or by lying down flat on your back with your neck well supported, legs straight and feet touching and hands relaxed palms down on either your chest, abdomen, or thighs. It’s important that your spine is straight and you create a “closed system” energetically.
  • Get comfortable, then close your eyes and turn your full attention inward and start by focusing on your breathing. Take a couple of long, slow, deep breaths to relax, and mentally scan your body for any discomfort, making any adjustments necessary to produce a comfortable feeling. Then relax your breathing to a normal, rhythmic motion.
  • You want to “talk to yourself” as a means of walking yourself (subconscious) through an intentional process, telling yourself why you’re doing what you’re doing as a form of verbal instructions (directing the process involved).
  • Breathe in relaxation, exhale all tension and stress, and with each breath you feel your body relaxing.
  • Place your attention on your feet – picture your feet or center your attention on the sensations in your feet, and tell them to relax . . . then feel them relax. Once relaxed, move your attention up to your calves, tell them to relax, and feel them relaxing . . . do this all the way up your body to the top of your head, until you’re fully relaxed and somewhat unaware of your body.
  • Have a sincere and brief conversation with your body about how good it feels to relax . . . the more you relax the better it feels, and tell it that this is a “safe space” that’s created by you, and it’s okay to just relax and let go. . .  . speak to yourself with a firm yet comforting and soothing voice.
  • Connect with your higher source of power . . . imagine a sphere of beautiful white light directly above your head. Feel it’s love and warmth as a very pleasurable sensation, then mentally ask the light to enter you, or draw it down intentionally, and feel it as it completely fills your head, saturating your brain with a beautiful white light, soothing and comforting you . . . as you continue to pull it down into your throat, filling your throat area, then down into your chest . . . abdomen, and legs, and down to your feet. As you feel your body filled with the beautiful, warm sensation of the light, feel it’s protection and comfort, and reaffirm that this is a safe place and it’s ok to just let go and go deeper and deeper down . . . down into a peaceful feeling of calm relaxation . . .
  • Then picture the person (or event) the memories are associated with, and tell yourself that you’re going to abstract from your body all the energy and etheric substance or aka from the various organs and parts of your body they’re located – the body holds memory as emotion – tell your subconscious to become aware of all the sensations within your body associated with this person.
  • Place your attention on the sensations, and imagine them as a form of liquid light and visualize yourself using your hands to enter into and pull out the fluid-like energy of the emotion and memory from your organs and muscles . . . .  
  • Do this every place you feel the sensations of the memory, while accumulating it and rolling it into a ball.
  • Once it’s been surgically abstracted and formed into a ball of liquid light, tell yourself to find the aka (etheric) cords attached at the heart center, and cut them using  a dagger or knife. Imagine doing it and see it as disconnected completely from all parts of your body and as a ball of light in your hands, then mentally thank this person in a sincere manner for the lessons they served to teach you, and let go of the ball sending it back out into the universe to be recycled so it can benefit someone else.
  • Watch it floating in front of you and being projected away until it completely disappears into the dark. Tell yourself it’s gone forever and bid it farewell.
  • After it’s completely gone imagine a hand whisking your energy field briskly, clearing out all residue, then seal your aura and body with a bubble-like shield of light, telling your subconscious that it can’t ever come back in and will be deflected back out into the universe. That you’re protected and safe . . .
  • Sense your body free of the emotional sensations while telling yourself how good it feels. Create an anchor for this state as a picture or word that you use that will instantly produce the state and can be fired at will.
  • Introduce the new memory you want to replace it with, associating the emotional trigger of the old memory to the new one. Wait until you get the new memory just the way you want it, and then replay it over and over in your mind until it comes automatically in complete form.  Then produce the emotional feeling of the old memory while instantly playing the new memory in its place. Do this repeatedly until it becomes natural.
  • In order to conclude the session, say to yourself . . . “and so it is, and so must it be”. And slowly bring yourself back into conscious awareness while telling yourself that you’ll wake alert and feeling better than ever . . . .

Most hypnotic processes only require one session, depending on how deep you go and how proficient you are at processes of deep meditation that utilize guided imagery, and your confidence in guiding yourself. If it doesn’t work with one session, simply repeat until it becomes permanent. Change produced by subconscious programming can often be a bit tricky to realize because it comes by simply “forgetting”. You lose awareness of the memories because you no longer think about them, and can go weeks or even months before it dawns on you that you haven’t thought about it in a long time. When you do think about the memories, you do it in a very detached and matter of fact way, with absolutely no emotion. As you realize that you haven’t thought about it for a while, you forget about it again, and never think about it unless there’s a direct association. It’s no longer compulsive or emotionally painful, and you no longer dwell in it uncontrollably.

The Monad and the Law of One – Duality as a Singularity

The most basic mistake we make in life comes from an ingrained belief in duality as a fundamental form of separation. We imagine that the world exists as fragmented, independent parts that coexist while having no direct relation or influence on each other. This is largely due to the fact that the unified reality as a singularity exists in a state of polarity as a dynamic interaction of complementary opposites. Duality as a primary illusion of separation is necessary as the means of creating “experiences” of our “self” in relationship to others and the entire natural world of which we are a fundamental part. What we call “reality” is only important in the sense that it sets the stage necessary for the soul to create experiences of itself “as” a specific type of person. Experiences are then interpreted to form memories that become the means of self-realization and consciously evolving itself to higher and more complex levels of consciousness.

The Monad and the Law of One

The Monad is what we can think of as the primary law out of which all other laws emerge systematically as a form of growth process. It’s symbolized in Sacred Geometry as a dot or circle in the center of a larger sphere (circle), and is the same symbol used to represent the sun. The central dot represents the consciousness that expands outward as a form of respiration to produce an outer atmosphere of the same nature and likeness. In terms of physics, we can view this model as representing the dual nature of light, which is the essence of matter, as being both a particle and a wave simultaneously. It operates in a similar manner to what we now call the “torus” as the electromagnetic field of the mind that envelops and permeates all physical organisms. This idea represents the nature of what we can think of as the spirit and soul, and the physical body it creates as the means of becoming located within the space-time continuum for a short period of time, where it first acts to create the outer reality that it then locates itself in by inhabiting and utilizing a material body.

The wave-sphere contains what we can think of as the universal-infinite mind as all possibilities for creation in their potential state. The wave of all possibilities is then collapsed around one possibility through what we can think of as a process of natural selection as resonance (intention for creating). The wave is then formed into a particle (physical body) that expresses briefly as one possibility within a unique set of circumstances. As the soul-mind conforms itself to the body, and the conditions and unique circumstances of the body, fashioning itself as a personality, it forms a relationship as a constant interaction with the light around it to organize it into a corresponding outer configuration of the same nature and level of consciousness. The core essence of the soul within a body is constantly expanding outward, and through a kind of filtering process reorganizes the light by activating what’s of the same qualities as it is, and neutralizing what ever’s not. It then absorbs only the active components through its magnetic aspect and draws them back into the center of its being where they’re integrated as the means of growing and evolving its mental paradigm.

The Dyad and the Law of Relationship

The Monad creates a state of duality by regenerating and multiplying itself as a mental projection of itself that’s perceived as another in order to be able to “experience itself” in relationship with itself. As it divides and separates from itself (same principle as mitosis) it produces an illusion of itself “as” another, and simultaneously as a coherent outer environment. This process of self-regeneration and division forms the Dyad (a double Monad), where the two centers are directly connected and exist as the outer periphery of each other, forming an “interference pattern”.

An interference pattern is where two wave-forms (spheres) of the same nature (frequency) resonate and merge energetically with each other, amplifying some aspects while canceling out others, to produce a new pattern as a variation of the original pattern they shared in common. A pattern can be thought of as a combination of qualities in various measure and degrees as a formula of consciousness that vibrates at a certain frequency producing correlated physical characteristics. Characteristics have natural behaviors and functions inherent in them that determine how they express to produce correlating realities.

Resonance, Sympathetic Induction, and Coherence

Whatever formula of various qualities we exist as (usually represented in our birth chart) determines the rate we vibrate at. As we embody and bring certain qualities into expression, we intimately connect and form resonance with those same qualities in everything else. As we radiate and transmit our inner qualities we resonate with everything around us that possesses the same qualities. Resonance is where we energetically “enter into and become one with” the same vibratory frequencies around us (qualities of consciousness). Through continued interaction as a relationship both vibrations are altered and modified slightly from their original state (pattern), and over time, become synchronized by vibrating in harmony with each other forming a new pattern as a variation of the original one that acted to connect them. As we form a relationship with our self (same consciousness) in another, we act “on our self” to evolve our self into new variations as a modified formula of active (expressing) qualities.

Polarity and the Nature of Complementary Opposites

Here’s another idea that tends to produce a fundamental misunderstanding of a basic idea. We often don’t understand the true meaning of “qualities” as states of consciousness and our “self” (soul) as a formula of qualities that act to produce our physical characteristics. All qualities exist in a dual state as a range of vibration that forms a kind of sliding scale between opposite aspects of itself that are necessary in order to create the quality as an experience of our self that develops our character accordingly. Whatever characteristics we develop in ourselves serve to determine our natural behaviors and what type of reality we produce as a basic form of self-expression.

The Dyad, which is also referred to as the Vesica Piscis and “womb of the universe” out of which all reality is formed (Triad) and projected (Tetrad), exists as the Monad in a polar state (opposite spin) of both feminine (inner) and masculine (outer) aspects of the same vibratory frequency as a dynamic living pattern. All qualities are also dual in nature and exist as a range of vibration between opposite poles that form a singular movement that gives rise to a specific type of reality as both an inner experience (of self) which then forms the basis for an outer experience of the same kind. We create our character based on the decisions we make in the present that form all our actions.

We can only “know ourselves” to be a certain way by contrasting our self with another whose of an opposite nature. We can only create an experience of ourselves as being “good” by how we exist in relationship with whatever we deem to be “bad”, by how we either relate and become like, or contrast and become the opposite. We can only experience ourselves as kind by how we relate and contrast ourselves to what we consider to be unkind or selfish. It’s only through our perception of our opposite aspect that we define ourselves as being a specific way and develop ourselves as possessing desired characteristics. Every time we encounter evil, it lays the foundation for active use of choice and will, where we decide how we’re going to be and what we’re going to do in relationship with it. Good and evil exists as complementary opposites of the same quality as an idea, because one serves to stimulate and call into existence the other one. One only exists “as” good or bad in relationship to its opposite quality.

So to ask the question “why do bad things happen to good people”, bypassing of course what we’re actually referring to as bad and good, we can realize that they become good through the constant decisions their making while in challenging situations being referred to as bad. It’s through the impact and pressure caused by unfortunate or traumatic events or situations that lays the foundation for making decisions as to who and what they’re going to become in response to it. However they respond determines who they become. It’s only when in the presence of bad that we can accurately shape ourselves to be good. One serves as a mirror necessary for realizing the other one.  

All of what we call “vices” (weaknesses and poor character traits) is transformed by choosing to employ their complementary virtue in their place. A “whole pattern” contains every aspect as a reality with multiple roles needed to produce it as an experience. Qualities form ideas that are dynamic holographic patterns where every part is an aspect of the whole, and their actions serve to create and sustain the whole. We don’t become bad people because bad things happen to us, we become one way or another based on how we enter into relationship with what happens to us and the decisions we make while in the moment that serve to define as one way or another. We can only know ourselves as being courageous when in the midst of feeling afraid. The greater the fear, the more exalted our sense of courage in overcoming it.

Strong and Weak Forces

Our soul’s energy follows the same principles as the forces that govern and orchestrate the material world of reality (which it’s actually producing). The mind-soul of the individual exists as either a weaker force or a stronger one in relation to other individuals. We all possess both active and passive aspects, and while the ideal is to operate them consciously through awareness and intention, most develop themselves to be one way or the other, often lacking balance. When two people come together in a relationship of some kind, one clearly becomes the dominating influence over the other, and as a result acts to take control of the will of the other.

While it’s often thought that males are dominant over females, where they assert and lead, and their female companion supports and follows, the fact is we all have both feminine and masculine aspects inherent within us that we utilize in different ways. A woman can be just as dominating in a relationship as a man can be. Gender is not the determining factor in whether or not someone displays either dominant feminine or masculine qualities. Many men have dominant feminine energy, and many women have dominant masculine energy. The term dominant simply indicates which one they’re “in” most of the time or as a general rule, which also determines who they’re attracted to as an intimate and passionate relationship. Attraction only occurs between polar – complementary opposites. There’s never an exception to this, regardless of gender. Even in homosexual relationships one plays the feminine role as the energy they utilize most often, and the other plays the masculine role.

In what we consider healthy relationships that are harmonious and serve to grow and evolve both people, there’s a dynamic exchange of passive and active roles based on the activities being engaged in. Under certain circumstances, one is better suited to take the leading, dominant role, and the other allows and complies with them. Then, based on different circumstances and activities, the other one may be more qualified to take the dominant role, while the other participates and benefits from it. We usually employ our masculine energy when going out into the world in professional activities that are competitive, and then relax into our feminine energy when we come home to our family and private life. Masculine energy tends to be assertive, self-oriented, analytical, and competitive, while feminine energy tends to be compassionate, group-oriented, intuitive, and nurturing. Most life skills that are effective on both the personal and professional level require a harmonious unification of both energies simultaneously.

Reality is a Mental Construct of the Soul

Another idea that’s difficult to grasp in the practical sense is the fact that all of reality as we’re capable of knowing it exists as both objective (non-personal) and subjective (personal) simultaneously. This is usually due to the fact that we mistake the soul for being the body, personality, and identity formed as a material being. All reality is formed through the dynamic series of relationships formed between three aspects and three levels (dimensions) simultaneously as a cohesive and singular act. What we refer to as the soul exists as a form of “medium” between the upper plane of pure consciousness in its potential and unformed state, and is what acts to draw spiritual qualities known as archetypes into itself as a sphere of specialized consciousness, and shape it into a material form. This material form shaped in the mind is then projected outward and reflected downward into the lower plane of material forms as one possibility for the manifestation of a universal idea.

The soul exists in a polarized state (symbolized as mercury) that vibrates at a frequency that can access the lower regions of the higher plane in its most exalted state, and the highest region of the lower plane to birth the material reality inherent in the upper plane. The individual soul is “constructed” out of the essence that it creates through the frequency it consistently produces as a personal creation that it then uses as the means of evolving itself. It works through the same principle as DNA does by taking two strands of complementary information and combining them to form a new one that exhibits the traits of both parents in different degrees. The soul is represented as feminine because it draws in the seed of the higher spiritual plane as an archetypal idea, and through a process of gestation adapts it to its current energetic structure that imbues it with specific physical characteristics. It then adapts and modifies it into a singular possibility that can be naturally birthed through the current conditions and circumstances of its physical body and its specific location within time.

The vibration as pure, unadulterated ideas of the spiritual plane is too far apart to form resonance with the lower plane, and therefore requires a medium frequency that acts as a transducer in order to manifest as a material form on the lower plane. Spirit doesn’t have the ability to act and create directly on the lower plane of a material existence, and can only act in the world through the medium of the soul in order to affect it. There’s no such thing as divine intervention that acts independent of you and in spite of you. God, so to speak, only acts in your life “through you” as your higher soul.

The spiritual plane is comprised of archetypes that provide a kind of prototype or thematic template for creating an infinite number of variations as personal creations of the individual soul. It exists in an unformed state that can only be accessed and utilized by your higher soul. This is where we get the saying “God only helps those who help themselves”, because it’s your soul as your energetic essence accumulated and built up over time that vibrates at a high enough frequency to access and absorb the higher powers of the spirit. Our higher soul in turn acts to impregnate the imagination, which is likewise the medium of the mind that exists between the higher plane of the human soul and the lower plane of the animal soul, and serves to deliver a message as a feeling, vision, and inner voice that directs the subconscious of the body to take action on the idea, and as a result, produces it as a reality.

An ideal drawn down in its potential state as an intention and desire for creating as a reality undergoes a dynamic series of adaptations that modify it into a form that’s unique to the individual applying it as a means of creating. An archetype is adapted to the mental model of the human soul, which is then projected in its modified form into the mind and imagination of the personality, where it’s adapted and modified further, and then it’s adapted in the imagination based on how it’s going to be applied in order to produce it as a reality. Once its manifest as a reality, the soul reabsorbs it as an experience that’s then “drawn back up into the higher soul” as the basis for forming a memory of itself as the expression of a universal archetype.

The creative process comes by way of drawing in a seeded idea that’s then developed in the imagination by forming new combinations (Dyad) to produce a unique variation that’s then used as a template for projecting into the lower sphere to create as an experience of reality. The soul produces its own experiences that become the memory that it uses to shape it itself as an individual. It acts on itself to evolve itself through active use of choice, imagination, and will. The soul produces endless variations of itself that serve to reformulate its essence. The universal law (which means it operates on all planes simultaneously) of vibration works as a polarized movement between an inner and outer pole as the respiration of the mind. This flow of intelligent energy works by the same principle as an electromagnetic field that simultaneously expands and contracts organizing light-essence through a filtering system to be of the same idea. Our inner forms the vibration of the outer as a complementary pattern by influencing it to express in a corresponding manner as a variable, then absorbs it as an experience that serves to influence the inner into a modified version of the original.

The World Soul and the Individual Human Soul

 What we have come to recognize as both an objective and subjective version of reality comes by way of a planetary soul that provides the environment for the individual soul to create experiences of itself. It’s the union of souls as fields that exist within even greater fields that vibrate in harmony with each other as the means of co-creating a joint experience of a shared reality. It operates by the same principle as light existing simultaneously as a particle and a wave, and the holographic principle where the part contains the information inherent in the whole, and the whole consists of its parts. It’s where the “parent pattern” (Dyad) produces fractal patterns as a process of self-replicating on different scales and levels to produce the same idea in unique variables, both of which are states of duality that function harmoniously to produce a singularity. The two complementary aspects work in harmony to produce a functional third.

A basic mistake is made in perception when we fail to realize that the Earth, like all stars and planetary bodies, is actually a living, sentient being as a soul that vibrates at a specific frequency and forms Nature as an objective reality that all other souls experience as being separate from them, while also forming the basis for creating through a consensus. All vibration has a holographic (3-dimensional) pattern has a self-assimilating mechanism inherent in it that organizes and condenses light into a certain type of reality as a global environment. This is what we experience as the collective unconscious as the unified field of the material world (subconscious) that unites all planetary beings within the same basic and neutral version of reality.

As Humans we’re born into the manifestation of the Earth’s soul as the objective reality of Nature that provides the stage for producing personal manifestations as subjective versions of the same reality. While we can draw in an archetypal idea that we resonate with, we use the same overall reality to produce a unique variation by how it’s adapted to our mental paradigm and modified accordingly. As we create unique variations of the same overall ideas, we are subject to our own creations and they serve to shape us through the integration of the memories we form out of them. Our reality is our offspring because it always comes as the union of multiple planes to produce a coherent whole. This principle is illustrated through the Myth of the god named Kronos as devouring his own children, which were symbolic of the Four Elements that make up reality. We first form a union that allows for a new experience, then we absorb and assimilate our own creation as our perception and interpretation, that we synthesize to modify the whole.

The Universal and the Individual

The Law of One (Monad) illustrates in very dynamic terms that we’re (our soul) always drawing on the ideas of the universal to produce the individual to be of a similar, yet modified nature. The inner core acts to organize and reconfigure the outer reality to be of the same nature. The outer manifestation is then absorbed as an experience and used to reshape the inner as a unique variation that acts to evolve the energetic structure of the individual soul, which then forms the perceptual model that alters the outer world to take on a slightly different form, and again absorbed to upgrade the mental paradigm birthing it.

We’re always either taking in ideas of the physical plane produced and being projected by others throughout history (as the collective unconscious), or we draw from the higher planes of novel, archetypal ideas in an unformed state (principles), and act to create truly new and unique ideas. There’s a constant movement that’s represented by a 90 degree angle as an “L” shape, where we either draw down ideas in archetypal form as principles from the spiritual plane (vertical line) and reform and project them to create in the material plane (horizontal line), then reverse the process and absorb them into the soul on a higher plane as memory or itself.

This 90 degree angle also represents that whatever plane we draw on in order to create (horizontal or vertical) we use to shape ourselves (soul) to be like in nature, bonding ourselves energetically to that plane. When we shape ourselves according to the ideas and opinions of others, we fail to realize our true ability as a higher soul to draw on divine ideas by embodying virtuous qualities, and as a result degrade ourselves to our lowest form as an intelligent animal. Whatever we identify with as an experience of ourselves we shape ourselves to be of the same nature. We’re always either identifying with our Higher Self as a creative, individual soul, or as a part of a group mind shaped by the opinions of others through our formative conditioning. Either way, the choice is always ours.

“12” – The Initiate, the Great Work, and the True meaning of Self-Sacrifice

In the occult sciences all single numbers (0-9) represent laws, while all composite numbers represent formulas as processes and the laws that need to be skillfully utilized in order to do them. Numbers provide us with mathematical formulas as philosophical relationships necessary for creating, all we have to do is be able to accurately decode them by interpreting them intuitively in order to apply them at the practical level. Numbers are also analogous to letters and geometric symbols, and can be intuitively discerned through the dynamic series of correspondences they form with colors, sounds, ideas, objects, archetypes, states of mind, and so on. Most intuitive realizations around an idea take place as the internal unfolding of chain-of-associated ideas. Symbols are impressed in the subconscious, which speaks the language of symbols, where they gestate and grow into endless variations based on how they’re applied.

The number 12 represents the principle of initiation as the first stage of what results in “The Great Work” as a self-facilitated process of spiritual transformation. It’s represents the stage in our life where we shed the false ego formed out of our formative conditioning where we’re completely identified with our body and personality, and shaped by others and society, allowing for the rebirth of our true self (higher self) within our body. In the Tarot (Book of Thoth) it’s represented by the archetype of the “Hanged Man”, and shows a man hanging upside down between two pillars (Jakin and Boaz), with his hands tied behind his back forming an inverted triangle, and his legs positioned to form a cross. This forms the symbol of the cross surmounting a water triangle, representing the Law of the Tetrad and Triad (4 x 3 = 12). The cross is disproportional with an elongated vertical pole, representing the Calvary cross of crucifixion. This is the symbol of self-sacrifice by surrendering your lower self (conditioned mind) to a higher power.

In the “Book of Formation” 12 is one of three “Mothers Letters”, because it’s symbolic of a new birth. It’s governed by the Element of water, which is considered the “Mother substance of all creation”. Water is considered the first mirror and reflects images upside down, as a polar or reversed image. It’s symbolic of the “reflected life”, or life as an image or form that’s produced by the primordial life substance. The Element of water is represented by an inverted triangle (pointing down), symbolizing the Law of the Triad as the imagination that’s the vehicle of the Tetrad, that’s formed as a downward, reversed reflection of the Triad. Both are formed and exist as polar reflections of each other in the “Great Cosmic Womb” of the Vesica Piscis or Dyad. The overall symbol represents crucifixion of the lower self in order to liberate the “sacrificed god” of our Higher Self, which dwells within and is what gives life to the personality.

The element of water is magnetic in nature and represents turning inward to self-reflect. It’s what the Hindu’s referred to as “prakriti”, the “Great Womb of Cosmic Substance” that’s the generatrix of all forms. The principle of the triangle represents the inner imagination and the ability to shape the fluidic-light substance into forms as thoughts turned into living entities. The images formed in the faculty of the imagination are similar to reflections formed on glass, on a dark shiny surface (magic mirror), or on water. They start as neutral tones of grey that have a ghost-like appearance, then, as they’re shaped with sensory details and attributes are grown into full color images when fully magnetized with our life-force energy. We take any word, description, or idea, and shape it into a reality in our mind’s eye. This fluid, transparent light essence that we shape into living forms using our mind, is what’s referred to as “Astral Light” that becomes a kind of metaphorical template (hologram) as our “perceptual lens” that we use for shaping the outer reality to match the inner one as a correspondence.

12 is related to 13 as the “death” of the false ego and the simultaneous end of one life cycle and the beginning of a new one. 12 is considered solar, and represents the 12 months of the solar year, and 13 is lunar, representing that a solar year contains 13 lunation’s.  A circle divided into 12 equal parts is formed out of the 13th one at the center. 12 also represents a complete cycle of manifestation as a life-cycle, represented by the 12 archetypes of the zodiac. These primary cosmic archetypes form our psychological makeup as a formula for self-creation, and are what provide us with the means for transforming ourselves by making new combinations. All qualities exist as a “whole idea” based on complementary opposites that form extremes of each other with a gradient scale connecting them. For example, fear is the opposite of courage, and courage can be used to temper fear. As we step into courage as a response to fear, we create more and more experiences of being courageous in relation to fear, and as we begin accumulating memories born out of courage, we move from one end of the scale to its opposite, transforming fear and insecurity into courage and confidence.

3 is represented in the Tarot by Daleth (Empress), ruled by Venus, as the imagination or internal formation of images, and 4 is represented by Heh (Emperor), ruled by Mars, as the actions formed out of the imagination. Venus and Mars are married to each other, and symbolize the fact that all action is born out of the imagination. Fire and Water blend together to form Air, the Element of the intellect, which culminates in the Earth Element (Tetrad-4) as our “constitution”. Our constitution is formed out of our mind and imagination and determines all of our perceptions and actions. The Triad (imagination) and Tetrad (action) form the basis for all of reality.

While we tend to think that our lower self possesses a “will” to create, the fact is the Will of the Higher Soul is reflected in the incarnate life of the personality. All perceptions of the personality are produced out of our formative conditioning which serve to structure our mental paradigm as “created by others” and external factors. The first birth of our self as our personality is formed out of a primarily unconscious state where we’re given (taught) our values, beliefs, and trained to behavioral dynamics as a part of a family unit and community that functions together as a single entity. All interpretations are made through our paradigm and the dynamics we were trained to that produce all of our natural behaviors.

The process of transformation comes by shedding the ego of our formative conditioning (lower self) through self-realization, and taking on a new perspective where we assume the position of authority in our own life as being the one that has the ability to “act on ourselves” as the means of creating ourselves. We reverse the process of referencing an outer source of power as the means of creating ourselves, and turn inward instead referencing an internal source of power as our connection to our Higher Self. We become self-referencing instead of other-referencing. We begin identifying with our true self as our higher soul. We begin walking in the world contrary to others who are still locked into the illusion of their conditioning.

Our Higher Soul (our true self) seeds our imagination with ideas that serve to organize particles of light-essence into material forms as inner sight accompanied by an internal voice of a higher authority. The ideas used by a divine authority to impregnate the imagination are ones that are not formed out of our conditioned mindset or as a result of previous experiences, but originate instead as a more universal, non-personal idea. Inner light is the “word (Logos) made flesh”, represented by the Hebrew spelling of the name of Jesus – IHShVH – similar to the Tetragrammaton (IHVH), except the principle of “Sh” is inserted in the middle. “Sh” represents “Shin”, number 20, as the soul perfected in flesh that rises from the ashes of its own death as a Phoenix. Our rebirth to a higher realm of consciousness comes through an intimate connection and identification with our Higher Self, also commonly referred to as our “Holy Guardian Angel”.

Spirit is Law, and a reversal from outer to inner self-reference, is where we begin operating to create in our life through esoteric law, which exists contrary to normal ways of thinking, speaking, and doing. Most people try to create by working in opposition to cosmic law through a fundamental lack of self-awareness and understanding. This reversal of being as an internal reference to a higher source doesn’t cause an outward opposition or form of antagonism to those still caught up in their false ego’s, because outwardly opposing something merely aligns you with what you oppose. All direct opposition stimulates and makes active its opposite, giving life to the same idea.

This reversal of directed attention is undertaken in silence as private work that’s done inwardly as an unostentatious reversal of one’s own way of life that’s combined with perfect tolerance for other people’s way of life. Once we gain the realization necessary to step outside of the conditioned mindset of our lower self, it’s easy to recognize that most are still consumed with acting out the reality they were conditioned with, and you naturally lose all need or desire to judge them or try and “wake them up” to the reality of their true self. Martyrs are those who try to deliver higher knowledge to those who are not capable of or prepared to comprehend it, and were brutally crucified by the very people they sought to enlighten.

If we look around at the state of most people and society, what we realize is that most are sick, mentally depressed, spiritually troubled, can’t get along with their self or others, and become passive in their own life while struggling internally. They’ve never formed an internal connection to their Higher Self, and live out of a constant response to external stimulation and the will being projected by others. They’ve been taught to live in contradiction to law (spirit) instead of in harmony with them. Everything comes as an expression of the Law of Cause and Effect, and the miseries they inflict on themselves comes as the result of the negative use of law. We’re creating our self in every moment of our life as a specialized application of universal law whose outcome depends entirely on whether it’s applied negatively or positively.

Practical Psychology

All thoughts are the seeds of speech and actions. Interpretations form the patterns for experience. Whatever happens to us comes as a result of what we’ve selected, whether consciously and intentional, or unconsciously as a conditioned reaction. In this idea emphasis is placed on a changed point of view as a reversed perspective. As we change our perspective, what we see changes accordingly. How we see others and life is a direct reflection of how we see ourselves. As we begin seeing life in new ways, we transform our paradigm by integrating the new experiences it brings. Our entire life is formed out of how we actively employ esoteric laws as spirit. Spirit is what governs, organizes, and orchestrates material reality through active use of the 3 levels and aspects of the mind that exists simultaneously on 2 planes of existence.

Our human personality is completely dependent on the ALL as the higher power of universal consciousness (Will). As long as we live out of our conditioning and become fully identified with our personality, we remain in a primarily unconscious state, much like the lower intelligence of animals who function through instinct as a part of the group mind. By surrendering our lower self to the conscious direction of the Universal Mind, we draw all our power from above and become the vehicle for higher consciousness that brings true self-awareness. We begin creating ourselves by working in harmony with universal laws, and we begin shaping our identity through association with our higher universal self. By drawing down higher forms of consciousness that we use as the means of forming all our perceptions and activities, we become powerful creators in our own life, and engage in the process of self-creation from a fully conscious and self-aware state. By surrendering our lower self to our Higher Self, we move into a more harmonious way of being and begin creating our self to be “like god”.

The Divine Paradox

A strange paradox occurs through total submission of personal life to universal life where it makes us intensely positive in relation to others and the conditions of our environment. By transcending our conditioning and material ego, and taking on a universal and detached perspective in its place, we naturally form a very positive mental attitude. In order to have courage and perseverance in spite of seeming difficulties and disappointments, we must know ourselves to be vehicles of power to which nothing can be an insurmountable obstacle. When we no longer derive our identity out of material means, we approach every situation from a neutral stance where we can truly act as a universal force that works for the good of all involved. Our mental attitude becomes “not my will, but your will be done” through me, because we realize that they’re actually the same thing. We are the vehicle through which higher powers work in the world.

The reality created through our conditioning comes as false interpretations that form illusions in place of truth. As long as we continue to make false interpretations and delude ourselves, the inexorable laws of the cosmos work out those interpretations in ways that bring pain and suffering. Yet pain itself is friendly because it serves to educate us (Key 11 – karma). Suffering, poverty, disease, imbalance, and death, all have lessons inherent in them. These are often what lead us in our search for truth. It’s in the mysteries of death that we find the secrets to immortality. The only thing that dies with the physical body is our false ego as our soul’s identification with the personality of the body. Disciplined practice of mind control and directing our actions are necessary in order to become the vessel for higher power that ultimately transcends the lower plane of unconsciousness.

Transformative Process

Our conditioning is initially established out of our soul’s memory as our character and karma that forms all our perceptions as patterns of interpretation. These conditioned perceptions must be “reversed”. This principle is analogous to the choice of DNA, where realities are formed by whatever is made active and rendered passive, that together produce new patterns. Our souls constitution is part personality and part identity, it’s both unconscious and animalistic, and self-conscious, self-controlling, and self-determining. It’s merely a question of which perspective and aspect we employ as a means of self-creating. The mind-soul has the ability to direct the body, instead of the body-personality directing the mind. We have to decide to re-orientate ourselves to let go of karma as conditioned memory of the personality, and actively employ higher consciousness of divine law in its place.

Summary

Our constitution (4) is transformed by way of the Law of the Triad (3) that’s seeded with ideas drawn into it by the higher mind (of cosmic good) that operates flawlessly through the cosmic law of creation. The process for transformation is formulated by the Tarot, which serves as a Key for interpreting the Kabbalah, which provides us with a precise formulated process for undergoing spiritual transformation. 12 is formulated as 1 + 2 = 3 > Triad. 1 = attention that’s directed into memory (either universal as archetypes or personal as conditioning) (2) form our paradigm as filters for interpretation through the imagination (3), which uses memory as patterns of interpretation that are applied to various situations, creating more of the same type of realities as a metaphorical theme.

To change our paradigm, we have to change the memories that construct it. This is done with the creative imagination which is seeded intentionally with new ideas and perspectives to grow into new realities that are experienced within as new memory that acts to reprogram us. Concentration on laws trains the mind to operate according to those laws through the understanding of them, and we begin naturally thinking and creating by way of laws. As we learn how to apply laws practically, we learn the skill for creating our self and our life in more accurate and precise manner. We don’t need years of therapy in order to transcend our conditioning, all we have to do is realize our true nature as the very “mind-soul” that’s “producing” the reality of our conditioning, and in doing so, begin to see ourselves in a whole new light and from an entirely different perspective.

The Energetic Law of Seasons: Winter – A Time of Reflection, Re-evaluation, and Setting New Goals

        As divine beings we’re bestowed with the higher capacities of the mind to be able to create in a fully conscious and intentional way using the power of self-realization, choice, and will. When we form a vision for ourselves we simultaneously impose a direction on our life, and we step into our true identity as creative beings. When we create in an intentional manner our life becomes a form of grand masterpiece as a live demonstration of who we are as a Soul. What makes us different from all other life-forms here on Earth is that all other animal forms don’t have the ability to create and determine who and how they’re going to be and what kind of story they’re going to tell by the attitude in which they live their life. Animals only have the lower capacities of the subconscious as a personality and lack what we call the “I” of the self-conscious mind that only humans and higher beings have. All of our experiences act as the primary means for creating ourselves.

Season’s – the Eb and Flow of Life

Energetic Rhythm of Nature

       The seasons of the year are produced by natural cycles of energy that form unconscious influences that affect all living beings in the same manner as mental and emotional states. In the fall of the year, after the full expression of the active, vital energies of summer, we gradually switch to the magnetic spectrum and all outward expressing energies are drawn back inward for a period of rest and rejuvenation. We experience this as a feeling of starting to slow down and begin reflecting back on our life from an inactive place of inner calm and stillness. We begin looking back on our life and forming realizations in terms of the vision that set it all into motion. We review and evaluate it to see what was effective and what wasn’t, what expressed like we intended and what didn’t as a kind of filtering system of self-realization that brings a deeper awareness to things. Our creation as a progressive growth process provides us with feedback as to the appropriateness of our approach and process in attaining the desired outcome we set in motion through our goals.

       Once we filter through the experiences we created in the active periods of spring and summer to see what we’ve harvested from them in the fall, and form realization around what worked and what didn’t, we provide ourselves with the tools for creating in a more manner. We can realize what acted to distract us and cause us to veer off course and waste valuable energy as a result. We produce an opportunity to appraise our strategy, so to speak, to determine if what we’re doing and how we’re doing it is working or not. As we remove all that altered and corrupted our original vision, we begin reformulating it into a new version of an ongoing vision for our life. Once our core idea has been transformed through intuitive analysis it becomes the seed of a new conception and begins the gestation period marked by winter, the time of energetic incubation and new formation. We keep tweaking our approach based on the feedback we get and evolve it to a new and higher form of the same basic idea.

       Winter is a natural time of meditative solitude and inner-reflection where we begin shaping a new vision for our life as an ideal that we take action to birth once again in the springtime after the energies have been replenished and are once again abundant.  As we tune into our deepest feelings and intuitive knowing, we begin forming images and scenarios in our imagination as the energetic nature of our ideal made real as an outer manifestation.  The more we develop it in a virtuous way, the more beautiful it becomes to us, and we act to magnetize it with intense feelings of reverence that causes it to live inside of us as a feeling in our heart. Through a feeling of admiration, we feel a deepened sense of love and devotion to its creation. It’s the feelings of our heart that connects us to the same idea in the space around us.

Synchronizing the Heart and Brain

       The more we visualize an idea by infusing it with the things that matter most to us, we feel a kind of love for it, and these feelings set the vibratory essence of it that connects us to that same idea and qualities in everyone and everything around us. As we form an ideal for our self and our life that inspires us, and we begin imagining it in vivid detail as an actual experience, we form a gravitational field as two complementary poles of the same frequency (we polarize ourselves energetically to the idea), and we begin drawing the essence of it into us, strengthening and animating those qualities within, and we’re drawn to (resonate with) the right conditions, circumstances and situations all around us. The reality we imagine internally and magnetize with strong feelings acts to construct the etheric template for organizing and orchestrating the corresponding outer reality through resonance.

       The more we hold true to our vision and keep it firmly in place, concentrating on it, the more we act as a magnet to attract the energies of that idea and organize them into the reality of our ideal. Whatever we “become” internally, we act naturally to create externally. An idea imagined as an intense sensory reality that naturally acts to invoke a strong, positive emotion in relation to it, tunes us spiritually (energetically) to the vibration of that idea and we begin resonating with it in everything else. Whatever we dwell in with strong feelings and emotions, we become like in spirit and essence. We are always the one producing not only our self as our inner feelings and imaginings, but also our outer conditions and life circumstances. The image we form of our desired experience acts as a kind of metaphor that’s a theme for our life, and the emotions it naturally invokes determines the type of experience we create of it.

        We then have to evaluate the idea we’re tuning ourselves to in terms of what’s motivating it, and what our true purpose is for creating it as a desired outcome. We have to ask ourselves at the beginning of any conscious creation, what purpose it serves, what it will provide us with once actualized, and why that’s important to us. The subconscious is instinctual and emotional in nature, and creates an idea as a reality based on what emotions are married to it that determines “how we experience it”, and how we experience our self in relation to it. The subconscious is motivated by emotions, and moves towards pleasure and away from pain. So all ideas converted to the best possible version of that idea within the context of our life, invokes the type of feelings that are very positive in nature and provide you with a preview of the type of experience it will produce once achieved.

Shaping the Dream into a Reality

       Once you’re firm on your mission and purpose, you have to shape it into an actual imaginary reality, rather than an abstract, objective idea that’s intellectual in nature. An ideal is the highest possibility for an idea as applied in the practical sense, and requires you to stretch and strive in order to achieve it by “growing into it”. As an ideal, it elicits positive feelings in you that cause you to revere it, and therefore want to “be like it”. It causes you to aspire towards it with a deep feeling of love. We only aspire towards what we love. This feeling of love that we have for an idea becomes the nature of the experience it creates through the “process” required for manifesting it, while also setting the basis for how you’ll experience it once it actually created.

       All goals should be created as an ideal because only then will it require you to utilize your full potential in order to attain it by becoming it. The process involved in order to create it acts to turn you into a higher version of yourself as the expression of your full potential. Through constant practice you exercise your creative abilities with a profound sense of precision and accuracy. Striving towards it causes you to grow yourself in the best possible way. It’s not the acquisition of a material object or situation that you’re going for, but rather who you become through the process and experience of it. The material world isn’t the goal in itself as a finished product, but merely provides the means for creating ourselves by consciously directing our experience to be of a certain kind and nature.

Goals Evolve as a Work in Progress

       Setting a goal shouldn’t be viewed or undertaken in a fixed or dogmatic way, but needs to be viewed as a living entity that self-creates through an evolutionary process of constant adaptation and modification. A goal is formed as more of a “metaphorical theme” that acts as a kind of theory for applying. It provides us with a starting point and a whole series of other, smaller goals as the necessary steps for accomplishing it. Once we start actively forming our goals in a step-by-step fashion, new relationships are formed that produce specific type of results, often different from what we had imagined and anticipated in the beginning. If a calculated step doesn’t produce what we wanted, or it brings other undesirable elements into the picture, we have to recognize that, and change the nature of the goal accordingly. We have to then continue tweaking it based on feedback until it produces the outcome we were going for. We have to be prepared at the onslaught to constantly tweak the process until it produces what we want. We have to “evolve ideas” until they begin taking on the form we want and provide us with the experience we’ve chosen to create for ourselves.

       A goal as an imagined idea that’s transformational in nature needs to be looked at as a metaphor or thematic idea rather than a specific one. Imaginary goals merely provide the subconscious with the pattern for connecting with the energies of that idea in the immediate environment, and drawing them together in a thematic pattern as the expression of the same type of idea within the current context of your life. You don’t really know if you’ve achieved your goal by the outside appearances it takes on, but rather the type of experience it provides you with. It’s the feeling you get from a situation that forms your experience of it. The form itself may come in an entirely different way than you had imagined, but the feeling you get from it will be the same kind.

Intuitively Constructing your Goals

       Goals of all kinds (unless they’re group or family goals) should never include someone else specifically in order to attain. The most fundamental law of the higher realms of consciousness (which is comprised of creative beings) is that you can never violate choice and free will of another. If your vision includes others in some capacity, you need to keep them in a metaphorical form. Not as a specific person that you know and want to be a part of your reality, but as a specific “type or kind of person”. This way you’ll only act to attract those who are of the same vision as you are. Those you actually resonate with and share a common dream for their life. When an idea is turned into an ideal, it’s comprised of the specific qualities necessary to produce that pattern. The people you attract and engage with through the enactment of a goal, will possess those same qualities and act as a catalyst for bringing them out in you.   

        If you include others, you should also avoid requiring them to look a certain way or meet some kind of preconceived criteria that you’ve made up in your mind for how they need to be, and instead make them look different each time you imagine them, or concentrate only on their qualities and traits that they would naturally possess in order to be a complementary part of the type of idea you’re creating. One of the most predominate ways we sabotage our dreams is that we get to set on the fact that they need to show up a certain way, which of course they hardly ever do. But just know that the person who shares the same vision for their life as you do will be recognized through the chemistry you feel when you meet them, and the nature of the relationship that forms, which is unmistakable. When we attract through resonance, an immediate harmony’s established that we experience as an affinity.

        In much the same way, it’s best if we don’t focus on the idea needing to be a specific way or comprised of predetermined elements (unless it’s prevalent to the idea itself), because again, they hardly ever come exactly as we imagined them. People often try to “figure out” what they want in order to have a certain kind of experience and live a certain kind of story, only to finally get it and realize it didn’t give them what they wanted. This is how “illusions” are created that we use to elude ourselves of our true desires. Instead we need to focus clearly on the kind of “feeling” we want and how we’ll “be”, and allow a natural idea to arise out of that which we then use as a form of emblem or talisman that represents the nature and essence of our idea.

       As we form an ideal in our mind as the actual reality that naturally gives us that feeling, we concentrate heavily on the feeling itself, intensifying and strengthening it. The feeling a situation has is what produces our experience, not the actual form it takes on. This is perhaps the biggest problem with those who set goals based on society’s standards or what they’re taught and have been led to believe they should want. Any goal that we don’t have a true desire for in our heart produces conflicting emotions that cause a feeling of inner turmoil and a lack of motivation towards achieving it. The attitude and feelings we have through the process necessary to create them, is the same feelings we’ll have once they’re accomplished. Often, when we try to “figure out” what we want, which comes by rehashing previous experiences and ideas as memories of some form (a new version of a past idea), and we set goals based on them, not only do we fail to grow through the process of creating them, but often realize we don’t want them once achieved because they didn’t give us the experience we were looking for.

       When we set goals that cause a feeling of stress and suffering through the process required to achieve them, they will only act to give us more of those same feelings once achieved. The initial idea, creative process, and end result are unified by the feeling they share. Whatever feeling is motivating the action necessary to attain the goal is what actually produces the outcome, not the material circumstances themselves. The Soul isn’t material or fixed in nature like the body in which it inhabits, and creates “itself” based on feelings and qualities and the type of experiences they create. The entire material world is mortal and only formed temporarily, and disintegrates at death of the body, where the soul then absorbs and gathers unto itself all the experiences of itself that it created while in the body.

       Your house, car, and job title don’t matter to the Soul, it’s only the experiences that you created “by way of them” that matter and are eternal in nature. The Soul is the accumulation of ideas it created of itself while in a physical form, and this is the only thing that transcends death and that the Soul “takes with it” as part of its energetic (psychological) constitution. In this sense it’s not what happens to us that matters, but rather the attitude we employ in choosing how to experience what happens. It’s not our material conditions and circumstances that define us, but rather who we become through the relationship we form with them. Our material world and circumstances merely provide the stage through which we create ourselves in an energetic fashion.

Shaping and Evolving your Goals

      The process for formulating and reformulating our goals is the intentional act of creating our life with a sense of awareness. Goals produce an inner process that sets the pattern as the basis for producing an equivalent outer pattern of the same type. Those who just float their life caught up in whatever current they ended up in through a complete lack of self-awareness, never learn how to exercise their creative abilities. They’re tossed about in a stormy sea of emotions, violently being thrown from one shore to another, seemingly helpless to impose a direction on their life, and as a result never realize that they have the ability to determine who and how they’re going to be, regardless of their circumstances.

       We’re all born into this world as a specialized design comprised of certain type of potential as qualities and traits that we possess naturally. Only some of our potential is activated, brought out, and developed in us through our formative conditioning as children, while the rest remains latent and untapped. In order to take an idea about ourselves and turn it into an ideal for our life, we need to utilize our full potential. We need to create an ideal for our life that requires us to stretch in order to grow into it by using gifts and special abilities we’ve never used before. We have to step wide-eyed and enthusiastically into parts of ourselves that are unknown even to us. If fear and a feeling of insecurity arise when we do, then we have to decide to move through the fear by embodying a sense of courage and belief in ourselves and trust our ability to know what to do in new situations that we have no experience with. Our goals should require us to really apply ourselves in order to accomplish. They should require us to access and embrace parts of ourselves that we’re not even sure we have.

The Relationship between Desire and Fear

       Our Soul comes into life with only one main purpose, and that is to grow, expand on creative abilities, and fully self-actualize as our highest potential. All true goals for our life, like ideas themselves, are dual in nature which means that our greatest desires are simultaneously opposed by our greatest fears and require us to step into them as a means of achieving our highest potential. In order to achieve our highest possibility we have to overcome what’s acting to prevent or sabotage it. We have to transcend our lower nature by fully utilizing our higher Will. Whenever we play ourselves down or set goals based on what we think we can reasonably achieve with minimal effort, we fail to grow in the most basic sense and instead become more invested in conforming to our perceived limitations about ourselves and our life. When we live out of our “lower nature” which is governed and ruled by emotions and lacks the ability to intentionally create, we create illusions instead by using our imagination to make our fears real. As a result, we render our higher capacities to create subject to our emotions, and act on ourselves to create constant experiences that feed and sustain our fears.

Putting it all Together

       Our goals in the most basic sense should set the stage necessary for personal growth and require you to strive towards and really apply yourself in order to achieve. They should be based on your true inner desire as a feeling that you want to experience. The material nature of the goal should be viewed as being the vessel and means for the energy of the Soul to express through in order to create a certain type of experience of itself. The feeling as the experience of doing the work it takes to produce the goal “is” the actual goal in terms of how you’ll use it to create yourself once they’re fully manifest as a reality. Goals should be ideas that are turned into ideals that naturally invoke a deep feeling of reverence and admiration that causes you to “fall in love with it” as the feeling it naturally gives you. The emotion married to the idea is the motivating force that acts to actually produce the experience as a continuous process.

       The motivating energy that’s propelling a vision should be one of love and honor in the purpose of the goal. It should be formed so that even though it’s difficult, you pursue and undertake it with a sense of enthusiasm and devotion to the cause. It should be something you aspire towards as a deep felt sense of love for yourself. As you set it into motion and begin taking action on it in a consistent fashion, you’ll need to become aware of any and all feedback your get, constantly reviewing it as a form of evaluation, and make any necessary modifications to the process required to create it. You’ll know when you’ve achieved it by how it makes you feel. Once a major goal is accomplished, it forms the foundation as the premise for forming the next one as a constant and never-ending growth process facilitated by exercising your higher capacities for self-creation through the realization of your self-produced experiences.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Hierarchical Structure of the Mind as 4 Levels of Reality

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

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

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

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

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

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

The 4 Laws of Creation

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

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

The Lower Soul of Material Form

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

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

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

How we set Our Vibratory Frequency – State of Mind, Thought, and Imagination

There are many ideas around how to create and determine our vibratory frequency, which forms the primary basis as a thematic pattern for all of our perceptions and life experiences, but probably the easiest way to do it is by gaining a firm understanding of the principles involved and how to work with them in a self-aware and intentional manner. When we try to work at the level of effect or consequence, rather than from the level of cause, it can produce an experience of constant work that can seem hopeless and at some point we become discouraged and give up trying. Many people find themselves in a position of not being able to concentrate and stay on task long enough to produce real results that are lasting or permanent. They can’t seem to direct and regulate their own thoughts, or feel they can’t meditate and create extended periods of concentration where their mind is calm, focused, and void of random and sporadic thoughts. This is often due to the fact that they’re trying to work at the level of effect rather than the level of cause. The true reality of this is easy to see if we simply step back, take on a detached and objective perspective and observe how our own mind works to create our experiences through our thoughts. If we observe our own tendencies we’ll notice that what we focus on and think about flows naturally as the expression of our “state of mind” or souls mood. Whatever mood we’re in at any given moment determines what memories we reference to form our automatic thoughts, and what stories about the past we replay in our imagination as a way of perceiving the present, and what type of things we notice and connect with mentally and emotionally all around us. Our mood and state of mind creates the basis out of which our perceptions flow as a natural stream of consciousness. No effort is required to produce, or try and change or control them somehow.

        Vibration is produced by a mental state that contains within it what we think about as a thematic pattern. This larger, predominate pattern as a theme produces smaller patterns of the same theme as its natural offspring. It produces reality as a reflection and perception of itself in the outer world through a process of self-regeneration. Our dominate frequency as our normal or most common mood is the greater idea always playing out in the different areas of our life as the parent pattern that produces fractal patterns as consistent experiences of the same nature and mood. Our frequency, as the energetic state of our mind, exists as an invisible field of organized information that surrounds, inhabits, and gives life to our body and forms our perception of reality out of a “filtering system”. This filtering system as a “thematic story” determines what we notice and abstract from any given situation and use for producing the “theme of our frequency” by how we interpret it, and what we don’t see or recognize, and therefore leave out or omit from our story. Our mind is always interacting with material reality, which is already structured with archetypal forms, producing a mass reality that’s basically neutral in nature, and through a process of natural selection, reorganizes it into a different pattern as a personalized version that matches the theme of the mind organizing it. All vibration contains a pattern and a self-organizing mechanism. It works by the same principle as DNA, which is genetic or universal information of a species that produces a unique formula by switching some information off while switching other information on, creating a new configuration. This is the same way the mind of the individual re-configures material reality, changing how it appears to match their ideas and beliefs about it. Consciousness enters into matter, which is really a body of light as essence, and forms a relationship with it, transforming how it “appears” to conform to the perceptual model of the individual viewing it. Resonance, Sympathetic Induction, and Coherence Every system as a living form vibrates to a unique mode and rate. All species of animals and plants vibrate in harmony with a greater frequency that produces their individual frequency as a member of that species as a form of “fractal pattern” or slightly altered formula of information inherent in their DNA. Whatever frequency we vibrate at energetically determines what frequencies we form resonance with in everything else. Whatever we resonate with we share the same nature with as both a smaller and greater pattern that forms a theme for producing reality that we readily perceive in the outer world and act to influence through our perception of it. As we resonate with similar frequencies, our energy as a field of consciousness literally “enters into” it, blending and fusing with it, and acts to influence it into a new variation that matches our mental paradigm, changing how it appears to us. As we alter its vibration to match and be in-sync with ours, we shape-shift it into a new form as our perception of it, and begin vibrating in harmony with it. It becomes a natural and coherent part of our experience of reality. Whatever is not of a similar nature to us, but still exists as a part of the collective unconscious of a greater shared reality, we fail to resonate with, and don’t readily perceive or notice. It remains latent and just becomes a part of the background as a setting and stage for other experiences to take place. All of life on the planet shares the same basic frequency of the Earth itself (7 to 8 Hz), which produces what we experience as Nature and mass reality of the collective unconscious. This produces what we can think of as the greater frequency or parent pattern that births an infinite number of smaller patterns playing out at the individual level. We’re always taking a universal idea and using it to create a personal version as a unique perception based on our paradigm and perceptual filters. In this way, all perception of the outer world is a form of self-perception where we only see in everyone and everything else what exists in us as a fundamental part of our constitution, which is made up of both known and unknown aspects that exist in polarity to each other as complementary opposites.

The Law of the Tetrad Sacred Geometry is a scientific system that uses geometric shapes that are inherent in the fundamental structure of all organic and non-organic forms that demonstrate laws ad principles as vibratory structures that have natural behaviors and operations inherent in them. This scientific system is not only comprised of geometric shapes, but also forms correspondences as “relationships” with numbers, letters, colors, sounds, qualities and traits, functions, etc., demonstrated by others systems of the Qabalah, Tarot, Hebrew Alphabet, Sanskrit, Yoga, and other major systems of Ancient Wisdom, which all dynamically correspond to each other and act as the keys for interpreting the symbolism of each correlated system. All laws form an interdependent energetic and ecological system, where one systematically emerges out of the preceding one as a growth process or form of emanation as an internal unfolding. The Tetrad, for example, represented by the number 4 as the diamond (reflection and projection of 3 as a triangle) that also forms a square, is the full expression of 0 -3, while still containing the potential for 5-9 in its latent state. The full expression of 4 as the Tetrad produces the foundation and basis necessary for 5 as the Pentad to spontaneously emerge and unfold as a natural process of “becoming”. So there’s no such thing as 5 existing apart from or independent of 0-4. The universal laws that produce the mind and reality as a construct of the mind, exist as a “unified whole” that produces and is the inherent nature of our biological system and mass consciousness. The Monad (0+1) is represented as a sphere with a dot in the center (same as the sun), as the mind or toroidal electromagnetic field that bonds with the body (matter) to form a living entity. The Monad (1) regenerates to produce its double, forming the Dyad (2), not as separate from it, but as overlapping, connected at the center, where the peripheral of one is the center or core of the other. They are connected by their shared nature, and the one, creating an illusion of itself as another, sees only itself in everything else. Our perception of the outer world and others is formed out of the same model as a vibratory structure and thematic pattern (frequency) used for perceiving ourselves as both an internal and external reality of the same nature or overall theme. What appears as our outer reality is formed by our perception of ourselves (same mind and idea) as our polar opposite played out on a greater scale. Together, the overlapping section, which is shaped like a woman’s womb, forms an interference pattern that re-configures the shared pattern by amplifying and increasing the vibration of some of the shared aspects while canceling out and contradicting other aspects, forming a new pattern as a unique variation. The straight line that connects their inner nature forms the base or foundation for the triangle to emerge as the new form produced as the offspring of their union. The triangle as the triad, formed on the upper level of the same plane (peaks in a unified state at the top), represents the inner pattern as an imagined idea that’s reflected downward and outward, forming the basis for outer (material) reality as its equivalent, forming a diamond shape. A reflection is the same image viewed backwards or reversed, that forms the “polar opposite” of the same thing. The outer reality of the material plane is produced by the inner reality of the creative imagination.

       This idea, like all symbolic ideas has multiple interpretations, the most fundamental one being that our inner nature is what connects us to the inner nature of all other beings through resonance, and reforms them to be of the same image and nature as we are by amplifying and bringing out some qualities while suppressing or ignoring other ones. We only interact with what’s of the same nature as we are, and we reform it according to our paradigm and beliefs about it as the means of being able to comprehend it. Whatever internal image or representation we form as an imaginary thought becomes the lens we look through to form a similar perception of the outer world. We’re always only seeing in everything else what’s like us. For this reason the Dyad as the regeneration of the Monad isn’t considered an actual number (combination of 0, 1, and 2), but is called the “parent number”, and the first true number is its offspring as 3, which forms the true basis for all material reality. In this sense we have the trinity as 3 principles combined to form 1, that then serve to birth and give rise to the 7 primary principles of 3 – 9 that are the natural “offspring” of the trinity. All of what we call reality, which is formed as our perception of it, results from the relationship we form with ourselves (same vibratory frequency and pattern) in everything else. The Monad and Dyad are the Masculine and Feminine aspects of the same thing as a polar, inner and outer reality. The outer reality is formed (in-formed) by whatever internal representation we form in our imagination that produces an electromagnetic field as an etheric blueprint for organizing and configuring the information of the outer world to be of the same type of idea as a universal theme.

Thought and the Holographic Principle A hologram is produced mechanically by taking a single beam of light, splitting it in two, then using mirrors, shining one through an image, imprinting it with that image, then reflecting the other beam of light from a different angle forming two 45 degrees angles, then intersecting them, shining the reflected light through the imprinted image, forming a 3-D image as a hologram. It’s basically an image formed out of light, or light shaped into an image, that’s then illuminated with another light that’s unformed, creating a projection of the image. All light comes from stars, and is referred to as Astral Light in Esoteric Sciences. This light is both invisible and a form of essence as a clouded, ghost-like substance when concentrated into a form by the mind. All visible form is produced by light reflecting off of dust as concentrated and coalescent light. The mind has the natural ability to create forms out of Astral Light through the faculty of the imagination. As we think about something we form it in our mind as an object or possible reality as the means of perceiving and experiencing it. As we shape it into a transparent image that resembles a “reflection on glass”, we simultaneously “look through it” as the means of perceiving the outer world by way of it. This is called our “perceptual lens” as the internal reality formed out of our state of mind and the accumulated memories we formed out of that state, that become the basis for the “nature of our experiences” of the outer world. The outer world, which we only know through our experience of it, comes as the image we first form in our mind, usually out of a memory, belief, or words of some kind, that we give life to by concentrating our attention onto it, and using it as the means for producing more of the same type of experiences. All reality in this sense is produced as a memory of some kind that’s constantly being relived in the imagination as the means of producing our experiences.

Astral Light, the Etheric Body, and Electromagnetic Fields Astral Light (mental essence) that’s concentrated into organized forms in the imagination, then defined in sensory terms producing an emotional response to it, work together to produce a “thought-form” as an etheric body that we magnetize with our personal magnetism (will), causing it to take on and emanate an electromagnetic field. It’s not until an idea is shaped into a pattern as an “empty form” that it then becomes a vehicle for consciousness as a vibratory frequency to inhabit, animate, and express through. Vibration as an electromagnetic field has a self-organizing mechanism in it that organizes matter and information into distinct patterns that are stabilized through tension and stress produced by the electromagnetic field that both expands and contracts at the same time. The only thing that vibrates or has “life” is organized and magnetized information. The mind, which exists as an invisible field of organized information, has the ability to shape light into forms that produce frequencies as a life-form that not only holds it together as electrified essence or plasma, but also gives it life by animating it. All form as organized information has qualities, behaviors, and certain type of functions naturally inherent in it as its consciousness. Different forms thereby contain or act as the vehicle for different types and levels of consciousness that perceive and function in very different ways while still being a part of the same overall biological system as a larger pattern or cohesive frequency being played out on different scales simultaneously.

       In this way, our thoughts, when concentrated to form a strong emotional reaction to them, literally become “things”. They take on a life of their own and become a natural part of us, and as a result, a natural part of our reality as our outer environment. This is the exact same way memories are formed that we live out of by replaying them over and over in our mind in different ways that continue to create our experiences to all be of the same nature. Though many believe that memories are accurate and objective recollections of past events, the fact is they’re produced entirely by how we interpreted the events of our life out of our emotional reaction to give them meaning, which served to form a kind of illusion in place of the actual events. A memory becomes a concentrated thought because we continue to think about it long after the event has passed. The memory forms the basis for all our perceptions and the dynamics we readily engage in and act to attract as well as be attracted to. Because all memories are accompanied by an emotional charge, they take on a life of their own and begin shaping all of our thoughts to be of the same nature through the thematic story we begin telling and living out of because of them. An emotional response to our own thoughts is the chemistry of our body being adjusted to match the same “state” as our thoughts. In the same way actual memories are created in an unconscious manner, we can also create “virtual memories” as concentrated thought played out as a reality with a strong emotional content that likewise becomes a means of perceiving and creating more experiences of a like nature because it provides the subconscious with a living (metaphorical) pattern to use as the means for producing the same idea as an outer experience.

        The way to work with reality or what has already manifest as an actual condition, set of circumstances, or situation, isn’t by trying to alter the physical reality itself, but rather through changing the “state of mind” as our vibratory frequency that naturally gives rise to all our thoughts as the internal reality that’s acting to produce and maintain the outer reality in a consistent and cohesive fashion. We change the outer reality by changing the “etheric body” that acts as the blueprint or mental construct for shaping reality. All “experience” is produced by imagining ideas as an inner reality with sensory intensity that reforms matter as our perception of it. We alter and shape the appearance life takes on by how we perceive and enter into relationship with it through the story we tell about it. All vibratory frequency is produced by a mental construct as a thematic pattern for producing the appearance of an outer reality as the means of self-expressing and creating experiences. We alter and shape our outer experiences by altering and shaping them internally first through adjusting our state of mind as our mood. When we act on ourselves to direct and alter our own thoughts by what we focus on and “tune into” by forming them in our mind as imaginary realities, we act to resonate with and enter into a natural stream of consciousness that flows in a synchronized fashion forming our perception of reality. Our perception as our vibratory frequency is what forms and determines how we experience reality and shapes the story we tell through our own thoughts about it that form our memories of our “self” and act to shape the inner constitution of our soul. In this way our soul is always creating the Vibratory frequency that it uses to shape and determine itself through how it expresses to create experiences of itself as a “reality”.

The Threefold Nature of our Mind, the Art of Self-Perfection, and the True Nature of Choice, Imagination, and Higher Will

One of the problems we have in realizing the true nature of not only ourselves, but of reality in general, is that we have a hard time not thinking in separative, dualistic terms, while trying to comprehend a reality that’s the unification of multiple dimensions into a cohesive whole. We fail to recognize the relationship that exists between higher and lower planes, between spirit and matter, and between ourselves as we exist simultaneously on various levels of consciousness. We imagine that spirit exists separate and apart from matter, that our Higher Self is a being separate and different from us, that our own subconscious and conscious mind exists and operate independently of each other, and that our outer reality is objective in nature and has nothing to do with our inner reality and how we form an experience of the outer world. We’ve been trained to a mindset that sees all of life which exists as a unified whole as being comprised instead of a bunch of separate parts that have no direct relationship to each other and as being able to function independent of everything else, when in fact it’s actually an intimate and cohesive part of everything else.

The confusion arises from the fact that we exist in a primarily “dual state” as a form of paradox while in the material realm. This dual state as the perception of separation that creates the appearance of our self and others, as if “we’re in here” and they’re “out there”, apart from us, is necessary in order to have an experience of ourselves as someone or something specific. We can only “experience ourselves” as we exist in relationship with everything else. Our very perception is formed by “seeing ourselves in everything else”. This is because we actually exist as being “universal in nature”, comprised of a unique combination of archetypal attributes and qualities that make up our “self” as memories formed out of self-created experiences of ourselves, which are the very foundation for the psychological make-up of humanity as a whole, and that of the Natural world which is also governed by a form of archetypal memory as the “instinctual field” of the “collective Unconscious”.

What we refer to as the invisible realm of spirit that underlies, permeates, and animates the material world giving it Life, is the realm of archetypal ideas and principles that serve to give rise to all material form. Archetypes exist as a form of generalized, universal idea as attributes, qualities, and personality traits that are used at the personal level to self-create by embodying them and becoming one with the idea they represent and acquiring those same traits as a result. Universal memory as archetypes are very similar to personal memory as whole realities or experiences that are complete with qualities, characteristics, personality traits, emotions, thoughts, meaning, roles and identity, and behavioral dynamics that naturally lend themselves to telling certain types of stories. They are the complete ingredients necessary not only for creating a personal inner reality, but also an analogous experience of the same type of outer reality. How we experience something is what forms the basis for creating a memory out of it as a union between the inner imagined reality, and the outer equivalent, that together allow us to experience the inward born idea outside of ourselves as an inherent part of our environment and we get a “sense of ourselves” within and as an intimate part of that idea, and it forms into a personal memory that serves to shape us. We’re always using universal memory to create our experience of reality, and create ourselves by way of those experiences.

       Because all of life is a coherent part of the same universal memory as the collective unconscious, whatever archetypal memory we resonate with we act to draw into our mind and imagination, and “become one with it in mind and spirit”, tuning ourselves to it by taking on the same qualities and personality traits, and we simultaneously connect with those same qualities and ideas in everything around us. As we change our inner constitution, our outer experience of ourselves changes accordingly. As we incorporate and integrate ideas into our mental paradigm, we form a natural relationship with that same idea in everything outside of us. Once an idea and way of being becomes a natural part of our inner being it also becomes a natural part of our outer world as our unified experience of our self. The inner and outer worlds exist as complementary opposites of each other, which means that if you change one, the other one changes automatically to match it. We’re always connecting to and forming a relationship with ourselves as our inner nature in everything around us and creating an experience through the unification of the inner and outer that becomes an inherent part of us as our soul’s memory. We’re always borrowing from the universal as a means of creating our self as an individual.

All creation comes by way of what’s called the primary “3 in 1” Law of the Trinity. Every single entity is comprised of two complementary opposites that work together to produce a third entity as a functional, unified whole. The material mind also exists as complementary aspects of the subconscious (inner self) and self-conscious (outer awareness of self), which work together to produce an offspring as a unified reality that’s a fundamental part of both. Each aspect of a whole acts to emanate and give rise to the other. While we tend to think of the self-conscious mind as being of a different nature and function as the subconscious mind, it’s actually a complementary aspect of the subconscious which is what gave birth to it. The true conscious mind, which is that aspect of us that we commonly call our Higher Self, is the unification of both the subconscious and self-conscious in an exalted state as a single entity on a higher plane, and is actually the aspect of the mind that operates as “Will” within the lower mind.

The self, like the mind and soul, is threefold in nature and exists simultaneously as three aspects on three parallel planes that function together to produce a unified whole as a cohesive reality. Within each plane, the single aspect of the self within that plane exists in a dual state of polarity as complementary opposites of itself, forming a triad. The Higher Self is what we call the human soul of the middle plane that acts as a medium between the Oversoul and the lower soul, and when manifesting in the lower plane of material existence, also separates into dual and complementary aspects of itself, and emanates the subconscious mind which acts to form and give life to the material body as it’s vehicle, contains the self-conscious aspect of the mind in its potential and latent state. After a period of gestation, this aspect of the mind is then birthed by the subconscious through a natural growth process as it’s complementary opposite. This idea is represented metaphorically as the “Madonna (Mother) and male child” as her divinely conceived offspring. The subconscious mind is the direct emanation of the Higher Soul and is formed out of the memory of all incarnations as an accumulation of integrated experiences to form a summation as our personality.

       The self-conscious mind, which is what most people think of as “the” mind, is birthed and exists solely within the material body as our outer awareness and what we think of as “brain consciousness”. The self-conscious is the masculine offspring as “self-awareness” that’s based exclusively on the body and current life conditions of the body, forms what we refer to as the “ego” as our soul’s identification with the body and the material world. Naturally, because this identity or sense of self is formed entirely within the current incarnation and based on outer awareness of the self, it’s also the mortal part of us that dies with the body. As humans, we are both immortal and eternal and mortal and temporary.

While we tend to think that the self-conscious mind has the ability to generate its own consciousness and therefore has a “will of its own” as a personal will, it actually doesn’t. All material bodies only have the consciousness it acts as a vehicle and vessel for and is able to “draw in” from the Aether and assimilate through resonance. What it does have is the ability to discriminate and evaluate ideas, and is the aspect of the mind that chooses and selects what it focuses on and thinks about, and thereby becomes one with producing a form of “seed” for the subconscious mind to produce inwardly by imagining it as a possible reality that it then uses to give birth to an outer reality of the same nature. This is the aspect of the mind that acts as the gatekeeper to the subconscious through its ability to discriminate and select what it “let’s in” to the womb of the subconscious, and what it rejects and keeps out by withdrawing attention from it.

The self-conscious is the aspect of the mind that forms conscious thoughts and internal dialogue that works together with the subconscious mind to manifest both an internal reality and external reality of the same nature and likeness. There’s always a fundamental paradox at work in everything as the feminine and masculine qualities that operate as complementary opposites, because while we consider the subconscious to be our “inner self” and internal nature, it’s also what produces and gives birth to the “outer world” as an extension, projection, and equivalent of itself as a kind of metaphorical theme. And while we say that the self-conscious mind is our awareness of the outer world, it produces the thoughts and internal dialogue we experience as our inner nature, and is what acts to witness the outer world of which it provided the seed of the subconscious mind for creating.

       Whenever someone is unaware of the multiple aspects of their mind and self (which are most people), and how these various aspects operate together to produce a unified whole as a cohesive inner and outer experience of reality, their self-conscious mind of thought tends to be run almost entirely by their subconscious mind, which operates exclusively out of memory of some form, and is habitual and repetitive in nature. When we remain in a primary state of unconsciousness, unaware of our true capacity for creating in an original manner, most of our thinking is repetitive and based on memory. When this happens our thoughts appear random, sporadic, compulsive in nature, lack meaning and a sense of coherence, and are constant. We simply replay the same type of thoughts as memory over and over like a broken record. All of our thoughts are something we’ve been taught, heard, told by others, or of past experiences that are played out by applying them to current situations producing more of the same type of experiences as variations. The capacities of the self-conscious mind as the ability to select, focus attention, and form thoughts, which together produce a seed for impregnating the subconscious imagination with brand new ideas for creating in an original and unique manner, exists for the most part in an unconscious state and uses its creative ability instead to merely focus on memories of the past and create more of the same type of experiences over and over.

The Higher mind of the human soul has the ability to truly create by choosing and drawing in universal memory of archetypes as qualities and characteristics that naturally forms an idea as a material form. It then willfully projects the archetype into the subconscious mind in the form of a memory that seeds it with a new pattern for creating on different scales within the material plane as both an inner and outer reality. The idea, once drawn in and conceived by the subconscious is reflected in the imagination as  a mental impression that the self-conscious mind witnesses in a passive manner as an inspired thought that comes to it out of nowhere. The self-conscious mind evaluates it and has the option to either choose it by continuing to think about it, or to reject it by saying no and withdrawing attention from it. When the self-conscious selects and continues thinking about the idea, fashioning it as a possible outer reality, it adapts and modifies it by defining it with details and sensory attributes into a new variation as a unique and personalized version.

This unique adapted version of a universal archetype is then concentrated on by continuing to think about, and it acts to re-seed the subconscious mind with a new version of the same idea, as a form of virtual memory that it can easily use to create both an inner and outer reality as the experience of the idea that becomes the basis of an “actual memory”, that serves to shape all three aspects of the self and soul at once. All actual creation (of brand new ideas) within the material world comes as a form of feedback loop that undergoes a transformative process of adaptation and modification between the Higher Self and the lower self, and between the higher and lower planes. This is symbolically represented by the Hexagram as interlaced triangles (a triangle represents the 3-fold nature of the mind) oriented in different directions (star of David) of higher to lower and lower to higher, as in the axiom “as above, so below, and as below, so above, in the manifestation of the One thing”.

       This creative process is also illustrated in the Tetragrammaton or Tetrad, as the four letter name of God, as will, intellect, feeling, and the manifestation of will. This process forms the symbolic basis for the four Elements of the material plane as fire (will), air (thought), water (sensation), and earth (manifestation). Naturally, there are only really two true Elements, that of fire (Higher Will that injects the archetypal idea) and water (subconscious conceives and reflects it), which together in a unified state produce air (thought as form) and its denser version of earth as it’s material manifestation or outer reflection.

Spirit as the Life-Power is always represented as air and breath, which is the unification of the feminine and masculine principles that form a functional whole. Together they work as a single entity. We inhale the outer, integrating and assimilating it into our molecular structure, then exhale infusing the outer reality with the molecules of our inner structure. There’s always a mutual exchange going on between the inner and outer, between the individual self and it’s greater self as the outer reality, which are comprised of the same substance. Will exists as the Higher, creative Soul that operates in dual aspects on the lower, more dense plane as intellect and feeling sensation that together form a unified whole as the etheric body or holographic blueprint as an inner imagined reality that produces the outer world as a material manifestation. Whatever we focus on and think about with emotional intensity forms a kind of request as a command to the Will of the Higher Self, which acts in a neutral and unbiased fashion to create it as an outer experience.

When we reside in a primarily unconscious state, we have no real awareness of our subconscious mind or our higher consciousness, and imagine the thoughts they produce and reflect in the mind as novel thought-forms to be our own willful creation. Yet because the self-conscious aspect has to choose the thoughts given to it by the Higher Mind (usually as a form of guidance or answer to an inquiry) and use its ability to develop them by continuing to think about and concentrate on them, it often doesn’t, and as a result they’re never allowed to take hold, and it reverts back instead to its redundant habitual way of thinking. Whenever the self-conscious rejects an idea and doesn’t allow it to be developed and grown in the imagination to fruition, it doesn’t act to use the idea to seed the subconscious, and it never manifests as part of its outer reality. This is often what happens when we ask for guidance from our Higher Self and when an idea comes to us intuitively in response to our request, we evaluate it momentarily to decide whether we like it or not, and if we don’t, we say “nope, this isn’t it”, usually because it didn’t show up the way we wanted it to. Then we go right back to asking for more guidance.

       Part of the problem many have is they have trouble telling the difference between ideas conceived from the Higher Mind and ideas received through the willful actions of others. The subconscious mind acts as the womb for any suggestion that’s allowed in and to take hold by the self-conscious mind. Whatever we give our attention to while in a passive state without discriminating or evaluating, and readily engage in by becoming a part of it and continuing to think about it, becomes a natural part of our thoughts and our perception of reality. This is most prevalent through various forms of entertainment and passive engagement where we surrender all resistance to the ideas we’re being fed and relinquish the need to discern them intuitively for meaning and accuracy, and as a result, they become a part of our natural thoughts and we think about them in a random and habitual manner. Usually without having any idea of what’s actually going on. Our mind is constantly accessing memory through association of various sorts. This is why songs frequently pop into our head out of nowhere and plays over and over, we imagine a scene in a movie we watched years ago, we think about the news we heard two days ago, we process the ideas of an article that we read over and over, and so on.

We all have the ability to self-create through our ability to choose or select ideas, then develop them by concentrating on them until we form them in our mind as a full, intense sensory reality that gives us an experience that develops them into an imaginary memory that impregnates the subconscious mind where it then becomes a natural part of our behaviors and outer reality, producing an experience of it as an analogy. We can likewise choose to actively develop qualities and characteristics that are latent within us as a means of self-development that evolves us to higher states of being. The ultimate goal of our higher soul is to achieve a state of self-perfection as a form of completion that actively utilizes all of our potential as the basis of being and creating. Who we become in our life is always a matter of choice and what it is we choose to give our attention to and concentrate on by thinking about repetitively. Whatever we choose to think about and create as an imaginary reality and life-like scenario, we impregnate our subconscious with as a pattern for producing as an experience through our activities.

The subconscious, once given an idea as an actual possibility for reality, begins taking action on it while connecting to that same idea in the greater subconscious mind of the material world as a primary form of telepathy or mental transmission. This is the same way instinct and intuition works.  A well-developed idea formed out of energetic essence in the imagination becomes magnetic and acts as a passive vehicle and receptor for electric energy of a complementary nature. It forms an organized pattern of primal matter (light essence) that becomes a holographic blueprint for creating that attracts and “draws in” consciousness as vibration that brings it to life through activity. All material form, whether imagined or actual, provides a kind of empty shell for consciousness to ensoul and bring to life as a vibratory frequency. Just as all frequencies have a pattern in it and a self-organizing force, all patterns as organized matter forms a frequency.  As an idea comes to life inside of us as a living form infused with strong emotions, and attracts and emanates an electromagnetic field, which are the natural forces of the mind that shapes matter as light-essence into material forms that serves as a vehicle for consciousness to express through, it acts to “vibrate” at a certain frequency that vibrates that same idea in everything else through sympathetic resonance, and reorganizes how the outer world “appears” as a composition to be analogous to the inner one. Matter only becomes organized into a fixed form when it’s being “observed” by a mind. When not being observed, it returns to a state of pure potential as a fluctuating field of information.

       All vibration has both a pattern as a living form inherent in it and a self-organizing force that shapes matter into the form of the pattern. How something functions is based on its energetic structure. Form always indicates the behavior, function and natural operations and activity the form takes on. As we think about and form an idea in our mind as a well-defined sensory reality coupled with a strong emotion that produces an inner experience of it as the “meaning” it has, we literally become “one with that idea in spirit” and we tune ourselves to its vibration. Our vibratory frequency is based on our emotional thoughts and what memories we live out of. All vibration as a pattern for producing life act to structure the same type of pattern on all scales and levels simultaneously as both an inner and outer, and an upper and lower, that function together as a unified whole or cohesive and coherent reality of the same nature. Whatever we think about and imagine with intensity we are “literally” creating as our life experiences and creating ourselves by way of those experiences.

When we begin waking up from our unconscious state and begin realizing how our own mind is operating on many different levels to create our entire material existence, we consciously move out of creating through repetitive patterns of past memories, and we can begin to intentionally determine what we focus on, give out attention to, and concentrate on instead. We can begin choosing who and how we’re going to be by intentionally embodying new qualities and characteristics as new ways of being that serve to transform us and our experiences of our self within a corresponding outer reality. We can begin realizing our full potential as a creator and begin acting on ourselves to intentionally create ourselves. We can learn how to consciously direct our attention into ideas that we want to become one as the means of self-creating. We can mentally blend only with ideas we want to become a part of our self and our experience of our self as our outer reality. We can begin using our mind the way it’s designed to be used to create ourselves as a higher, perfected, and glorified being.

Once we begin using universal ideas and archetypal memories born out of our true nature as the means of creating ourselves, we can begin vibrating at a higher level of consciousness that resonates with our Higher Self instead of our lower, unconscious, desire and impulsively driven self. When we strive towards self-perfection as the means of self-creation of our highest potential, we become aware of who and what we’re blending with energetically, and we tend to become steadily isolated from others because very few people are engaged in the same creative process in the same way or at the same level as we are. This is why the spiritual Adept and Initiate are symbolically portrayed as a Hermit. Higher consciousness is the awareness of the true self and the true nature of reality. Consciousness is the root and foundation of all physical manifestation. We are always the one creating our self and our experience of the outer world as a projection and correspondence to our inner world. All reality as we know it is formed out of our relationship with ourselves in everything else.

        From a purely psychological perspective, this is the state of being as the awareness that all volition is universal in nature, not personal. Whatever we choose to think about and become one with is brought into fruition through our Higher Will, which acts as a form of neutral force for creating whatever we ask for and have a predisposition for as an unconscious state that creates out of memory of the past. It’s the realization that the idea of “personal will” originating in the animal body as a function of the personality is an illusion. The material body, like all creatures of the animal kingdom is driven by instinct that comes as intuition and has no consciousness or creative will of its own, but merely acts as the vehicle of expression for the Will of the Higher Soul.

Because the intelligence of the Higher Will works through the intelligence of the lower mind and body, it creates the illusion of being the outcome of a personal effort and aspiration, while in reality it’s simply the final stage as the outcome of work initiated and carried out by the Life-Power Itself. The Great Truth is that the “heavenly man” (Archetypal Man) reproduces himself in the “earthly man”, symbolized by the archetypal “ideal” man of Adam Kadmon (Adam of the Bible), also called the “microcosm”. The Microcosm is a direct reflection of the Macrocosm on a smaller scale and plane because it’s comprised of and operates according to the same laws and principles. In this idea we find the truth hidden as a clue of the spiritual doctrine of the Christ as being “begotten, and not made”. Who was also described as being “in this world but not of it”. We find the meaning of Christ’s words when he said “of myself I am nothing, all power comes from my Father”. We are a reproduction of an original source and not created by our own hand. What we perceive as our physical make-up and concrete mind is but a vehicle and aspect of our higher source as our true nature.

All “original ideas” that are used to perfect the formation of our essential nature comes as a relationship with our immediate environment, what’s stimulated and brought out in us in response to it, and how we spontaneously develop as a result. The only thing that can be actively brought out in us is what’s there in latent form to begin with. We are never given something from another or from a source outside of us, nor do we ever acquire something we didn’t originally possess. The outer world only acts to stimulate, awaken and bring into an active state what exists in latent form within us that’s of the same universal nature. We perfect ourselves to a higher level of consciousness by overcoming emotionally driven instinctual tendencies and becoming aware and identified instead with our true Higher Self. Whatever we “choose” and give our attention to, we unite with in mind and become “like in nature”. By becoming aware of this natural process and choosing to focus exclusively on our Higher Nature, we perfect ourselves and transform into our Divine Nature, free of all internal conflict and indecision born out of an unconscious state.

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

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

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

The Soul and the Nature of the Mind

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

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

The Lower Mind of the Animal Body

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

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

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

The Higher-Self

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

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

Original Thought as Inspired Ideas      

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

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

The Nature of True Guidance

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Developing Clairvoyance – “Seeing the Spiritual World”

I often get asked if clairvoyance or intuition are something we can learn and develop in ourselves, or are we just born with the ability as a gift? And I usually reply, it’s both, it’s a natural faculty we’re all born with, that is usually chalked up to a “vivid imagination” and eventually “taught out of us”, or we suppress it through a form of ridicule of some kind. What we refer to as the “spiritual” world or plane of existence is primarily invisible to the material senses, and is filled with beings and forms as invisible natural forces of some kind. These forms differ in many ways, but the two main ones are whether they’re caused by an object or a being. Our “world of thought and imagination” is the part of us that lives in and is a coherent part of the spiritual world. All thought is invisible in nature and can’t be seen or felt by anyone outside of us; yet it exists as real for us internally and is what makes up our experience of reality. Astral Plane and the World of Formation Because our mind, which is an invisible field of information and natural forces also, is an inherent part of the spiritual realm, our own feelings and thoughts can influence these forms and cause them to morph and fluctuate. This plane of form is traditionally called the astral plane in esoteric sciences, the World of Formation in Kabbalistic Philosophy, and has a broad range as higher (barely formed and still fluctuating) and lower (well-formed and stationary) regions within it as a range of expression that moves an idea from pure essence (unformed) as a universal archetype to a well-formed idea as a personalization of that idea. Forms that characteristically change with our every thought or feeling are produced by the mineral elements and are human made objects. Those formed by the plant element change less easily in response to our thoughts and feelings, and animals, which have a personality of their own, even less so. Though the astral-etheric world is invisible, it acts to impress the mind (which is of the same plane) with distinct mental impressions that form subtle realities in the imagination. The imagination is the faculty of the mind that receives knowledge of the spirit through the astral plane of form. These mental impressions while never (hardly ever) solid or opaque, like the forms of the physical, are still quite distinct as a “feeling about something” that forms a chain of association as the qualities that permeate it and the forms that express those qualities in symbolic terms of the physical plane actually being the symbolic representation of concentrated energy from the spiritual plane. These astral forms remain in a constant state of evolutionary flow as transformation taking place based on energetic influences from all levels of consciousness surrounding and interacting with it, most of which exists on the same plane as human thoughts, feelings, and emotions. These forms have a luster and iridescent quality that’s consistently shifting and fluctuating through sympathetic resonance and assimilation of similar frequencies in near proximity of it. They shift and reform slightly based on how they’re being influenced or directly interacted with, which is mostly being done unconsciously through our own thoughts and feelings in response to them. These forms are full of life and movement and their mobility is largely due to the influence of our own thoughts and feelings, and to other causes beyond our control. Some of these forms are independent of the human mind and exist outside of our ability to influence them, and as a result, they act instead to influence us. Others are always interacting with us in feelings and thoughts that form “in us” as a natural response to the feeling sensations we’re always receiving and the activity they induce at the subconscious level, and so we often have no direct awareness of the influence our thoughts are having on others and the world around us.

Archetypes and Thought-Forms While all natural living and non-living objects have energy fields which are impressed with the shapes of the qualities it possesses that forms its characteristics as a form of organic patterning that are produced as a natural emanation, there are many “thought-forms” created by people’s emotions, instincts, passions, and so on. These man-made thought-forms are similar to archetypes as universal memory that fluently populates the astral plane and can be “tuned into” and absorbed by the individual mind where they appear in the mind’s eye much like a normal memory or inspired idea. Through meditative observation we can realize that while our thoughts and feelings bear an influence on these man-made thought-forms, it’s only slight, unless we’re directly interacting with them. Other forms have only a negligible effect, if any, depending on what causes them. Sensing Energy When we learn how to reverse our normal thinking in terms of the spiritual world being symbolic of the material, and instead realize that all material form exists as the symbolic forms of the spiritual-energetic realm, we can realize that many behavioral characteristics of people are seen as an animalistic quality in the spiritual essence of their presence. So when energy is “sensed” it takes on or is perceived as the natural qualities themselves as they would exist in the natural world. They appear as animal-like, or as bearing the sensations of evil, grotesque, demonic, scheming, envious, lashing out, bitter, sulking, scared, dominating and aggressive, or as angelic like, soft, patient, calm, centered, reserved, protective, flowing, loving, and so on. The quality of the energy takes on whatever physical characteristics correspond to it. While animals always bear the energy of their species as a form of instinct, and remain somewhat consistent, humans possess many different qualities that make up their persona, and their energy is sensed as analogous forms to the natural world, and because of this, may completely contradict their physical appearance. Emotions, which can be thought of as natural forces or entities that have a singular nature and express only as the quality of that emotion, which produces a whole living process as a chain of association that spawns whatever we focus on, what memory we access, what we think about, how we feel, and what type of experience we act to create by way of it that produces a reality for us on the inner planes. This imagined reality creates a “thought-form” on the astral-etheric plane made up of light essence, which is what we shape in our imagination as a self-produced expression of that energy as an actual reality. The energy itself exists in its universal form as containing endless potential for expression, that when drawn into a person, undergoes a whole series of modification that adapt it to the individual, and based on how it enters into relationship with the personal reality, forms into one potential and expresses through us by forming a corresponding reality. Example – anger, while expressed differently by each individual who experiences it, is still interpreted as anger. It comes across as anger and acts to systematically activate or trigger anger in everyone around them, all of which will express in a somewhat unique way while maintaining the basic characteristics assigned to anger, such as outbursts, yelling, criticizing, belittling, intimidating, attacking, aggression, hostility, or in other cases, frustration, overwhelm, severe anxiety, crying, or a temper tantrum of sorts. While everyone expresses anger in a way that’s unique to them, the basic feeling of anger as producing distinct characteristics and behaviors remains constant as a kind of theme. When energy is being sense around a person, regardless of what their physical appearance, is experienced as these same qualities. A perfectly calm and sullen person can be raging inside with anger, which is not only felt by the clairvoyant, but “seen” as distinct mental impressions that are surrounding them. This is a form of tuning into the inner (spiritually outer) thought-life of the individual and “reading their thoughts” as impressions that are not necessarily unique to the individual as a personal creation, but rather the universal and neutral expression of the quality itself as a possible variation.

Attributes, Qualities, and Characteristics The spiritual world is not an ethereal, hazy or illusory replication of the physical world, but reveals itself in forms that are quite different. Qualities that permeate a physical form are seen as the images associated to those qualities, and the attributes of the forms “match” the quality of consciousness as behaviors or processes being expressed through or by a physical body or entity. This is the basis for why the spiritual realm is “seen” or portrayed as “animal powers”, is because certain qualities that produce specific behaviors in what we could think of as the instinctual field of the collective unconscious that governs all of life on the planet earth, and expresses through different species of animals as the form associated with those behaviors as classifications of the consciousness that governs and produces them. So, for example, another human who embodies and demonstrates certain behaviors are “sensed” as their animal quality. An aggressive or deceptive  person might be seen as having lion or panther-like qualities; someone who constantly complains might be seen as a dog barking or whining; a docile and meek person like a lamb or sheep. Likewise, negative emotions being embodied and expressed are seen as attributes of that emotion; anger is perceived as jagged, sharp, chaotic, loud and aggressive energy that expands and clashes or shocks; whereas sadness is sensed as dull, vague, dark, tired energy that pulls within and almost disappears; loving emotions are very warm, buzzy and sensuous, gratifying and intoxicating, relaxing, and attract you to them. When these feelings are experienced, mental impressions often rise up as thoughts of a corresponding nature, and we have a kind of translucent vision as transparent imagery, or energetic composite that forms in our imagination that’s very different in the normal sense from the actual outer “appearance” of the person expressing the energy as emotional states. Time, Eternity, and Evolution The “forms” of the spiritual realm, which are really personal translations of feelings in their corresponding forms, reflects the “qualities of consciousness” being projected and acted out through the physical form, and often doesn’t resemble the flesh body at all. Though the flesh body does begin to take on characteristics similar to the emotions habitually expressed, this takes time and is subject to evolution on the physical plane, which is a slow and gradual process, whereas on the spiritual plane evolution is a constant movement that transforms instantly, and moves in and out of energy that stimulates a variety of images as a flux and flow that reforms based on the qualities it absorbs from the environment, which when assimilated through a form of equilibrium as coherence, reshapes instantly as the immediate expression of the new vibration. Time doesn’t exist as a linear process within the spiritual realm, which has no sense of past or future, but remains eternally in the present, and like a growth process of latent energies coming from the inner, invisible realm to the outer (somewhat) visible realm, is an unfolding process of becoming, rather than a linear process of modifications to an original form, which only takes place through habitual tendencies developed over extended periods of time. Change in the physical world is gradual and process oriented, whereas in the spiritual it’s instantaneous and synchronistic. In the physical realm, even the images produced by the individual mind are based on memory of some form, which while that memory may play out as vivid in our mind, usually differs significantly from the actual event that produced it. We form our own interpretation of the event as a re-presentation, where each time its recalled, it’s modified by how we use it to form a similar interpretation of our current situation to make it “mean” the same thing. Through constant recall and new applications we evolve and transform the memory throughout our life, retelling it slightly different each time, until eventually, it doesn’t even resemble the actual event or original memory. Spiritual experience is much like memory, except it doesn’t refer to the past imagined experience, but rather to the present soul and spiritual aspects of our environment and the events taking place in the moment. These “soul-like” memories, similar to what are commonly called archetypes as a form of universal memory or holograms, don’t have anything to do with the personal conditioned memories of the body, but of the memory as a classification of standardized forms and qualities that animate them that are of the larger, universal soul-mind, which we’re always tuning into and sensing within our present situation, that serve to stimulate and call forth our personal memories as a correlation.

The Cosmic Mirror of the Imagination When we refrain from the need to interpret experiences, and simply observe them with a neutral and unbiased mind, they form the same type of mental impressions as personal memory and scenarios or moving images that form mental impressions in the imagination, that lack meaning (in the personal sense), while existing purely by reasons that exist independent of us. The spiritual realm is perceived in much the same way as a form of invisible reality viewed in the mind, though not actually seen, that’s alive within the present situation, rather than being resurrected from the past and reused to create the present as an illusion. The mental impressions formed in the mind in response to feelings and the sensations they give rise to, is how we “perceive” (see) the spiritual within the physical. Not as a mirror image that duplicates it, but as an image that resembles the reflection seen on glass or a dark shiny surface. Yet the images themselves appear nothing like the physical body they inhabit and act to animate through thought processes that produce behaviors as their equivalent. The idea of a mirror image is referring more to the nature and quality of the mental impressions themselves, rather than the actual image, which in spiritual terms is quite different. Feelings, State, and the Nature of Vibration Though in the reverse sense, a feeling we get in the spiritual sense forms a very distinct mental image as a reality that expresses in the physical as the same form associated to the feeling. In reality, the physical is the expression as “form” of the spiritual; the spiritual is not symbolic of the physical. We have to reverse our way of thinking. The spiritual is the “feeling state” (vibration) that acts to produce and give rise to a correlating physical reality as animated imagery that forms composite images, scenarios, or events that are the processes inherent in the feeling as spiritual law. The living patterns of vibration create processes as structure and function. They shape astral light (starlight) into forms with distinct behaviors that express the principles governing them. These astral shapes are formed as variations of the same idea (archetype) based on the adaptation they undergo through the relationship they form with all other factors involved in the situation or circumstances that act to modify it to some degree as a kind of reformulation of the same fundamental properties, changing what’s emphasized and enhanced, yet, forming out of the same fundamental properties as a formulae or dynamic patterning.

Thematic Patterns and Symbolic Correspondences When we move from thinking that the physical world is the basis that gives rise to the spiritual, which seems symbolic in comparison, and realize fully instead that it’s the spiritual as vibration that exists in its potential state as a “thematic pattern” that gives rise to the physical as a symbolic correspondence, then we can begin to understand the spiritual world through feelings that when held in a calm and open mind form into natural imagery that’s in a constant state of movement as fluctuating qualities that transform through a state of “becoming” while maintaining the same basic form as an archetypal idea. For example, if we hold the archetypal idea of a lamp in our mind, and we’re simply present with that idea, we may form impressions of all sorts of different types of lamps, yet they’re all still a “lamp”, and they all represent the same type of idea.  As we hold an idea in our mind, a form of free-association as a chain of associated ideas naturally unfolds in our imagination as correlating and corresponding ideas of the same nature. An archetype can be thought of as a kind of universal (non-personal) idea as a pattern, living template or prototype that forms a mental impression as a specific “type of form” in the imagination of the individual, which uses it just like a personal memory to create experiences in their life that are of the same idea, modified by how its embodied and applied, not only through the consciousness of the individual, but to their exact set of circumstances and conditions. We “conceive of” an idea whole and intact as a form of insight, that we then personalize by how we think about it, what emotions we associate to it, what scenarios we apply it to in order to create it, and we reform it into a personalize version as a result. The idea conceived as an insight or inspiration is “pictured in the mind” in much the same way as a memory is. It appears like a reflection on glass as a see-through or translucent image. The imagery is the translation as an interpretation from pure feeling to a full-fledged physical reality as a mental construct or internal representation. We modify the original idea by how we apply it to our current life situation that presents it to us in a new way as a modified format or configuration. The basic idea being used as a theme for creating is modified through the process of adaptation which reforms it. The feeling that we get that’s present in any moment as an emanation of the energies involved, when we create an open space in our mind for the feeling to take hold within us and rise up in our mind as a living scenario or animated form within our imagination, we can see the nature of the energies as the forms their vibration creates, which are the expression of the “qualities of consciousness” birthing them as realities in the astral plane of the imagination. All vibration has patterns inherent in it along with a self-organizing mechanism that shapes essence into forms in the faculty of the imagination. The imagination is the faculty of the mind that shapes astral light as programmed essence into forms as the expression of the vibratory frequency they’re programmed with. The vibration as movement organizes and structures light – the astral remnant of movement between two poles that form dimension – and a matrix of tension (electromagnetic field) that hold everything into fluctuating, shimmering, lustrous patterns. These patterns as shapes translate into living realities of the physical plane. The physical plane is produced, maintained, and governed by spiritual laws, which are the energetic intelligence as information that form and express as properties that naturally undergo certain types of processes and form natural behaviors based on the chemical properties of their form and the level of consciousness equated to it.

The Field of Potential and the Particle of Existence So the spiritual world and the physical world are extreme aspects of the same plane comprised of multiple dimensions where pure consciousness as a wave-form containing billions of potential is drawn down through the planes and into physical reality as the expression of the information inherent in the wave-form, that collapses around “one” potential as a possibility that’s used to form a single, individual personalized reality. That reality then forms into a memory, which draws it back up the planes and returns it to its universal state as an archetype or pattern as an idea that’s represented by a basic form that can be used to create numerous more experiences through using the memory as a general idea or meaning that becomes a template for creating more experiences of the same nature, shaped by the meaning it has that evolves it through a series of modifications by how it’s adapted to fit a new set of circumstances or situation. This memory (whether universal or personal – because one is used to create the other) when used repeatedly, creates a field of energy (consciousness) as an electromagnetic field that habituates it, making it a main theme for creating our life story by solidifying it as a thought-form, which continues to exist in the soul-astral plane of mass consciousness, where it becomes a form of substitute for an original thematic idea as an archetype, and can be tuned into, accessed, and received by other minds, who also use it to create in a similar fashion as a basic idea. In this way, archetypes are not only evolved constantly by how they’re applied and modified, but birth new archetypes through the same method as a form of genetic (information) modification. The world of thought-forms as a form of collection or accumulation of archetypes evolved by humans through application and personalization, also refer to a mass consciousness or the “instinctual field” of the collective unconscious that produce natural behaviors that are conceived of unconsciously, is also referred to as the “Book of Life” where every action (as a new vibration) is “recorded” (impressed) in the Akashic Field. These terms are all referring to the same idea, which is also the basis for the modern scientific discovery of morphogenic fields and torsion fields that populates the field of human instinct and subtle energy as the ghost-like, invisible energy that emanates and produces distinct physical properties and behaviors. Unconscious ideas are natural thought processes that form basic behaviors that are thematic in nature and natural to us. These are ideas that we didn’t acquire through awareness or intentionally but without direct awareness that exist as thought-forms imprinted within the soul-field or astral plane that we tune into and draw into us as natural and automatic thoughts that we begin expressing by creating experiences as imagined representations that we form our personal memories out of. These universal ideas that propagate our internal awareness become themes that govern our whole life because we continue to use memories of the past to create more of the same type of experiences in the present, usually without ever realizing that that’s what we’re doing.
