Enlightened Leadership – The Psychology of Leading

Higher_GroundThe idea of leadership tends to be viewed by different people in different ways, most of which invest in the idea of a “program” of some sort, a form of organizational structure as a hierarchy of power and control, or as a position responsible for overseeing a whole group of people in different departments and roles, and while all of these are true to a certain extent, the most primary skill inherent in, and what determines a person’s ability to lead is the psychology being utilized in a deliberate and strategic manner. Psychology is a persons ability to work through an understanding of how the mind, as the field of energy that informs and animates the body works, and their ability to operate within it, by not only employing it, but by demonstrating it. Demonstrating it through their whole performance, both natural and intentionally developed, to work with the mind of others by using their own mind as the controlling mechanism. We can only control, guide, or influence others to the exact same degree we can control, guide and influence ourselves. We influence people and direct the course things take by how we’re being in the situation, and how we enter into relationship with it.

 

In order to understand the basic rules of psychology, we have to gain a fundamental understanding of the laws that govern subtle energy as consciousness itself. The mind, which is an energy system, is what motivates and animates the behaviors of the body. The body as a set of behaviors is a direct and equal reflection of the mind that’s expressing through it. To change or determine the behaviors a system or group dynamic takes on, you have to work by creating and setting into motion the proper mind-set. Not by adopting a regiment or business model as a plan that’s laid out, but by “becoming” the demonstration of the qualities and characteristics that form a dynamic relationship necessary to act out or perform the business plan as a group personality and identity with a distinct style or “quality of experience”. To understand how to do this, what the creative process is that’s always operating in a situation; we have to look at how energy itself operates.

Energy can be thought of as “qualities of consciousness” that has a distinct personality to it, as a feel, that motivates corresponding behaviors by “animating matter”. Energy forms a natural relationship with matter through resonance, sympathetic induction, and coherence. This is where a vibration as a feeling or quality of consciousness acts to vibrate that same quality in another. Whatever quality as a “state” that an individual is vibrating to, stimulates, awakens, and brings into activity that same state in another. It literally enters into the body of another and vibrates that same quality in them, bringing it out in them as an active state, which then establishes the nature of the interaction as a relationship formed through the expression of the same quality as a “shared” state of mind.

 
The expression as an interaction based on the relationship formed by the same feeling in another in response to us, adapts the state to a new form as a new combination based on what idea, thought process, or memory is associated to the feeling in both people, that forms a new pattern-idea through the interaction itself as a relationship that forms a new vibration as equilibrium that forms coherence. We modify the state of another through our state, and how we’re openly and outwardly expressing it through our attitude, perspective, and behaviors. Whatever mood we’re in and how we’re behaving stimulates a like-response in everyone and everything around us. How we’re being determines how others are being because of us. This is the most fundamental way we’re always leading without actually realizing it. Most employ the ironic adage of “do what I say, not what I do”, then act bewildered when it doesn’t work and place the blame on others who were simply too stupid to do what they were told.

 
It’s pretty easy to recognize how our mood affects our behavior, and how emotional states, not only produce predictable behaviors, but how those behaviors employed and motivated by the emotional state act to tell a certain type of story as a metaphor, creating an experience that amplifies and acts to give us more of the same feeling. This is because, while we tend to look at things as disconnected, separate, and independent systems, they are in fact different aspects of a greater idea that’s being expressed outwardly, creating a congruent experience. How a person feels determines what they focus on and think about, what story they tell themselves about things that give them meaning, and how they act as the outer expression of their inner reality. What we do and how we do it, are always based on how we feel and what emotions we’re experiencing. This is always true. The one is the expression of the other, and the system is holistic in nature. It’s impossible to feel one way and think or behave another way.

 
Once we understand this and realize that in order to create in a deliberate and precise way, we need to work by way of these laws, and not in contradiction of them. We need to first develop a business paradigm that’s congruent with the individual’s paradigm or group of individuals responsible for actually producing it as a cohesive reality, or match the paradigm of the individual to the business as our method of acquisition, ensuring that they’re compatible and complementary to that of the business. Then we need to envision a reality as a working idea illustrated by the business model, while asking ourselves (realizing), what state of mind, mood, or attitude, would have to employed in order to naturally and spontaneously produce the behaviors necessary for “acting it out” as a relationship or group interaction? Just as an individual has a personality that forms all their natural behaviors and the identity created out of those behaviors, a business operates in exactly the same way. Same laws and principles are at work on a different scale and magnitude.

The leader in any situation has to embody the paradigm as a reality that they use to express out of. They use the business paradigm like a memory that they superimpose over the current situation, whatever that may be, and use it as a filtering mechanism to think and imagine out of, act and speak out of, and use to make all the decisions as a representative of the business as a “general perception”. The leader is always the producer of the company paradigm as an offspring of their personal paradigm, or is complementary to the company paradigm, and can readily embody it and become the active demonstration of it. By using the paradigm as a perceptual lens, we communicate and teach it through our most ordinary behaviors. Everything we do and say is the expression of it and acts to stimulate that same vision in others, giving them the means for understanding it and participating in cooperatively acting it out as a group dynamic.

 
Whatever reality as a personal identity the business represents as an “entity” has to be embodied and fully employed by the leader. In doing this, the state of mind that the reality exists as an outward expression is naturally employed, that produces natural behaviors of the leader. By “being” of the same paradigm as the business, and always acting out of it in a congruent manner, we act to stimulate the same state of mind imbued within it in others, then shape the idea inherent in the feelings by communicating through the relationship we form with them, that gives them the instruction as a demonstration for acting it out by first initiating, then modeling it. We literally become the role model for how each person playing a part has to become. Not in their specific roles, but in “how” they perform their specific roles as a personality being employed by everyone in the group. We are demonstrating a “way of being” that stimulates that same way of being in them. We express through an attitude that causes them to take on the same attitude. We openly display and express emotions that stimulate and bring out the same emotions in them.

 
We then employ this way of being by training them individually to an overall pattern as the daily operations of their role and job description, as their role in a greater idea being performed in a “like-mind” by all other team members. Through communicating and giving guidance and instruction as the vision of the business performed by daily duties that are in relationship not only to the greater whole, but to the client/patient they’re designed to serve. We teach the art of relationship that allows for constant modifications as adjustments necessary to meet specialized needs of the client or situation, while still maintaining the overall objective of the business as an outcome of delivery.

Any “state of mind” as a “quality of consciousness” lends itself to specialized behaviors and ideas pertinent to that state. By acting and ensuring to intentionally produce that state in others, we know that regardless of the modifications made to the procedures as a way of customizing them by how things are handled, that it’ll remain consistent to the state of the person performing it. Any reality as an experience is an idea as a vibratory frequency or biological pattern of consciousness that’s holistic and complete, and has everything inherent within it to produce it as a material reality as the idea, feeling, emotions, thoughts, and actions. We’re always producing more of whatever we’re demonstrating. Our mood determines our disposition and temperament, and how we express to create realities as personal experiences. Embody the idea, employ the state as feelings and emotions, imagine the idea as an internal conceptualization, then express out of that state and you’ll act to naturally produce it in others.

Emotional Thoughts Transform us to the Same Vibratory Frequency

Transcendence

A basic Principle of the mind is that it doesn’t know how to process a negative command. What this means is that it doesn’t work by way of being told what “not” to do, but rather by suggesting what “to” do. It simply holds an idea as a suggestion within the mind’s eye, and begins developing it by thinking about it. We then have an emotional response to the thoughts, which becomes the determining factor of how the thought is developed to create meaning through a story. The emotional component is one of the most important features because it forms the meaning the idea takes on which becomes the nature of the experience we have, which subliminally drives our behavior as an expression of the idea, as well as spawning other ideas of a similar nature with the connecting point being the emotional quality itself.

 

The mind as energetic essence is exquisitely sophisticated. The greater aspect of the mind, the subconscious and Higher-Conscious, as two-thirds of the mind, is slippery, elusive and impressionistic making it hard to fully realize. This is because not only is it primarily unconscious (functions outside our awareness), but it also perceives and communicates by different means and by using a different language than the conscious mind. It works out of feelings, ideas, emotions, images and symbolic metaphors that intuitively invoke a whole chain of associations. It exists in a state of unity and synthesis as a fully synchronized relationship with our environment. It doesn’t perceive itself as separate and apart from everything like the conscious mind does, but rather senses itself as the same thing. The true meaning of the Quintessence isn’t mind over matter necessarily, but rather matter as existing within the mind, of the same essence as the mind.

The conscious mind, which is what most of us are aware of, is the perceptual, conceptualizing mind that creates separation as the necessary means of self-perception. The conscious mind is the aspect of the mind that thinks in terms of words as internal dialogue. The word as a conceptual form calls forth life by breathing and vibrating it, by speaking it. All of life was brought forth by the word which moved across the living waters. Emotions give rise to thoughts by motivating them through animation. The spark as an inspired idea, heats the water creating a vapor as a cloud-like formation, creating thought-forms as ghost-like images. The more we think about them with strong emotions, the more defined they become. The more passionately we speak them as a means of expression, the quicker they manifest as a living reality.

 

When an idea as a thought-process is introduced into the mind as a form of suggestion by willingly allowing it in through a passive state, or magnetizing it through curiosity that draws it in through an active state, our mind begins developing it by thinking about it. Our emotional response to our own thoughts infuses the idea with meaning that fashions it as a personal reality. We personalize the idea making it our own, by how we develop it. Because all personal development is from the inside out, what we lend our thoughts to serve to develop us accordingly. We first choose them by allowing them in, and then use our will by imagining them, which floods our system with corresponding chemistry called hormones, that we experience as emotion that aligns and unifies our whole-being to the vibratory quality of the feeling idea. The idea that we imagine literally affects us at the molecular level because it forms a systematized process of correspondences that changes our chemical composition.

Just as our conscious mind serves to program our subconscious mind by how it chooses to use the imagination to create a virtual memory as a surrogate reality, which translates conscious thought into the language of the subconscious as experience, it simultaneously alters the memory of our cells, or our DNA by altering its memory through its indigenous language of chemistry. The body functions at the molecular level as energetic intelligence that formulates corresponding chemistry.

 

Alchemy, the Sacred Art of personal transformation from lower states to higher states of moral perfection that is self-induced and maintained, is the mastery of the mind to direct its own thoughts married to positive emotions that completely reprogram the entire system as an organic correspondence. The key faculty of the mind that codes, decodes and forms a unified interpretation in a variety of languages as analogies and correspondences, is the imagination. How we use our imagination to think about things is intimately creating us at the same time. The imagination as the primary function of the mind that spans the full range of consciousness “is” our personal power of choice and free will. We choose what we think about and it restructures us as a modified state-of-mind that aligns our whole being with the vibratory quality of the idea itself as transformed into personal experience. The internal experience birthed in the imagination becomes the memory that serves as a re-patterning that gives the subconscious a new program to operate out of.
