Understanding the Nature of Emotions and how we Create Reality out of Unconscious States

 

We can gain a clear understanding of the nature of emotions and how they work in our life to control us by simply observing what happens when we experience an emotion and have a reaction as a result. Emotions are the natural forces of the material world that are designed to produce automatic behaviors that don’t require thought or a decision. They are what operate the “instinctual field” that governs all living beings of the natural world that don’t possess the higher mental capacities of self-realization, thought, discrimination, and will that are necessary to self-create. Emotions themselves are invisible forces that are constantly being generated, transmitted, and received within the atmosphere of the material plane, also referred to as the astral plane. Emotions are always associated to memory of some kind and are an animating force that works through the etheric body of the astral plane to stimulate the subtle organs (chakras), which then stimulate the Endocrine glands of the physical body, producing a whole series of chemical messengers that change the energetic state of the whole body to match the emotion.

We can think of emotions as being the language of the subconscious mind which forms the unified field of the material world, and is what unites and serves to orchestrate the instinctual behaviors of both the animal and plant kingdoms, of which we as humans are a natural part. Emotions are always associated to memories, which are what produces the patterns for automatic behaviors in animals that all reside in and live out of a primarily unconscious state that lacks self-awareness and the ability to create in a unique fashion. The memory used by the animal kingdom is universal in nature, and used by all members of the same species to produce the shared behaviors of that species, whereas humans have the creative ability to produce their own memories as a personalized version of the universal memory that governs all of humanity.

The Relationship between Thought, Memory and Emotion

Only humans have to ability to “think” as a way of producing the imaginary reality of our thoughts as internal representations that form personalized memory of various forms that’s used as a “thematic template” for creating a corresponding outer reality as an illusion that simultaneously produces all of our natural behaviors. All of what we call “intelligence” exists as organized fields of information that form patterns of reality as memory. A memory is produced as an interpretation of an event that gives it meaning as the expression of the emotion being experienced during the event. The meaning we give something forms a kind of theme that can be applied to any number of situations as the perceptual lens and filtering system that provides us with an instantaneous means of interpreting events to all mean the same thing. The meaning something has as a feeling it gives us forms the basis for the story we tell ourselves about it that creates how we experience it. We don’t ever form memories as the recollection of factual details of the event itself (unless we set out with the specific aim of doing so), but rather by forming a story as a “type of experience” based on the emotion we were experiencing at the time.

Self-made memory as a unique account of an event is always formed out of an emotional state, and is only “accessible” and able to be recollected from that same emotional state. The memories we naturally reference and use to form our thoughts and perceptions are directly correlated and a by-product of the emotional state we were in at the time we formed them. We act as an energetic tuner and receiver for thoughts and memories that are correlated with and produce the realities of our emotional state. If we’re in a positive and uplifted state, we access and use memories formed out of that same state as our perceptual lens for creating more memories of that same kind. If we’re sad and depressed, we dwell in past experiences that were sad and depressing, and think about things that give us more of that same feeling. Our “emotional state” becomes our perceptual lens for perceiving the present to be of the same nature as the past. All states of mind are self-perpetuating and act to multiply and produce more of the same states through the experiences they serve to propagate.

The Collective Unconscious of Humanity

What we call the material world is produced and governed by a unified field of the subconscious mind as the collective unconscious of humanity as it pertains to our mammalian body and personal existence. The entire natural world of the plant and animal kingdom is unconscious in nature, and is operated by emotional impulses that produce natural (automatic) behaviors. The subconscious mind, which is the aspect of the mind that connects all of us, is emotionally driven and functions out of universal memory that’s tuned into the state of mind and consciousness of the individual, downloading it with certain types of information as collective memory. As humans we experience this as random thoughts that come to us seemingly out of nowhere, but that are so similar to our normal thoughts that we mistake them for being our own.

Different species and types of animals tune into the memory within the collective unconscious that provide it with self-knowledge and instructions for living as its natural instinct. They don’t have to be taught or accept the belief of someone else, or have the ability to create personal beliefs in place of actual knowledge, but instinctually know what to do in order to live and survive from birth. Animals don’t have a self-conscious mind and the ability to create in an individual manner apart from their species and kind, and all form the same behaviors that only differ in the sense of the personality they possess in how they perform them. All dogs, for example, act like a dog, though they have their own unique personality that makes them distinguishable from other dogs in “how” they do the same behaviors.

Instinct comes as universal memory that provides the intelligence and animating life force for creating, orchestrating, and maintaining an incredibly diverse Eco-system in an automated fashion that all live and function in harmony with each other. Emotional charges as impulses and passions are what serve to activate the memory necessary to produce automatic, natural behaviors, that don’t require and form of realization, calculated decision, thought-process, or will to carry out. All behaviors of the animal kingdom are produced and driven by natural impulses as emotional charges that are being transmitted from one being to another and throughout the atmosphere as a form of telepathy.

What Distinguishes Humans from Animals

What separates us from the animals is that we have the ability to create our own memories in our imagination by how we emotionally interpret the events of our life to give them meaning. We take a universal idea as a theme and use it to produce a unique version as a personal reality that forms our soul’s memory and makes us unique and different from everyone else. While our thoughts, which are associated to individually created memories, are somewhat unique and different from others based on how we interpreted the events of our life to create them, the emotions we share in common are universal in nature and experienced pretty much the same way by everyone. Emotions weren’t originally designed to be “brought into our thinking” as the means of creating illusions as personal realities that form our memory base, but merely as a form of instinct that aids us in our ability to live and survive within the instinctual world by giving us automatic behaviors as instant reactions.

The other unique ability we have as humans that sets us apart from the animal kingdom is we have the ability to generate and produce our own emotional state based on what we focus on and think about. Emotion typically comes in two ways, one as a transmission from one person or being to another where it’s absorbed and taken on, and as a response to our own thoughts. Whatever we focus on and think about automatically produces our emotional state as a correspondence. Thought and emotion are always connected, and one serves to form and determine the other. Likewise, whatever memories we dwell in produces in us the same emotional states we were in when forming the memories. We have the ability to “choose what we focus on” and direct our own thoughts to intentionally keep ourselves tuned to certain emotional states. Whereas animals are purely impulse driven based on the present events of their life and what behaviors are the most beneficial and appropriate.

Instinct as universal knowledge on the higher plane of consciousness comes to us in the material plane as intuition. When we intuitively sense something through a feeling about it, we perceive its inner nature and character as a form of “knowing” that comes without a cognitive thought process. We know the true nature of someone or something without knowing why or how we know. It comes in an instantaneous and automatic fashion as a realization that forms a mental impression in our imagination, similar to how we play out a memory as the means of creating an experience, except it’s not of a personal nature and not generated or formed by us. The entire material world of “formed beings” as a dynamic ecosystem is formed out of and animated by various forms of universal memory.

Energy as Emotion and Patterns for Automatic Processes

Memory, whether universal in nature as an archetype, instinctual as the basis for life, or personal as our own creative ability to produce personal versions of reality, comes as an organized field of information that’s stabilized into a fixed pattern. While we commonly hear that all “things” vibrate at a certain rate, meaning energy as a material object or being exists within a certain level and quality of consciousness, the fact is all material objects are formed out of memory as an electromagnetic field that’s contained in DNA, the subconscious mind, and the soul, all of which form union and combine with each other based on shared memory. This unification of shared memory is what acts to form a unified field as a pattern that produces a vibratory frequency. All material form is a mental construct formed out of memory that vibrates at a certain frequency.

The mind itself exists in a potential, unformed state, and is the medium that uses a universal archetype as a thematic idea for shaping matter into a pattern that then generates and emanates an electromagnetic field as a frequency. We know that a frequency contains a pattern and a self-organizing mechanism that serves to organize information into a formula or configuration as a living being, while often failing to realize that it’s the mind that produces the frequency by how it forms an “internal representation as the etheric double” that acts as a spatial map for organizing and structuring matter. As we form an internal reality as a thought-form, we magnetize it by drawing in the equivalent emotion, which acts to produce the activity as a vibratory frequency that transforms it into an actual outer reality of the same nature. All reality is formed by our “perception of it”, which comes by way of a filtering system that reorganizes the information available into a pattern that matches our memory, making it appear different to us.

       Through our ability to construct material forms in our imagination, we produce a form of virtual memory that gives the subconscious mind the pattern necessary for organizing the outer into a similar idea. The imaginary reality we form as an internal representation, whether out of an actual memory or universal one that’s not based on an actual experience, is a form of “request” for an equivalent outer experience. As we feel, think, and imagine the reality of our thoughts, we tune ourselves to the emotional state of that reality and it acts as a receiver and generator for more of the same type of realities. Whatever we think about in a consistent and emotionally intense way forms our perceptual lens that we look through and use to form our experiences by how we interpret the information that’s available in any situation to form our perception of it.

This process also works in reverse, and anytime we absorb and “take on” an emotion that’s being projected and transmitted through the atmosphere by another, it acts to adjust our emotional state to be equivalent to it. Once our emotional state is tuned to the same frequency, it determines how we act, what type of memories we use to form our interpretations, and what type of things we think about. We form a “coherent state” and act to co-create a joint reality out of the same state. As we express an emotion by coupling it with a memory as a correlating idea, it produces an instant experience that amplifies and gives us more of that same emotion. In this way, our state of mind and the reality it perceives and creates becomes self-perpetuating and forms a kind of closed system. As we take on the emotions being projected by others, and that exist naturally in the space around us, we “adjust” chemically to become of the same nature and state as our environment. This is the most basic form of evolution that serves to constantly form us to be of the same nature instinctually as the environment we live and survive in.

The Language of the Subconscious

Emotions are the energetic language of the material plane that acts as a mechanism for organizing information as memory into corresponding realities. Emotion and thought act together to produce internal realities that provide the perceptual filter and lens for producing an equivalent outer reality as our experience of it. Whatever outer reality we have to work out of, we act to reorganize the information available in it by only noticing and bringing out what matches it and can be used to produce our desired experience, while simultaneously ignoring and leaving out what doesn’t. We’re always taking what exists as an objective and neutral reality that’s a part from us, and restructuring it to produce a subjective reality that’s an inherent part of us as our creation.

We never really perceive things as they actually are, but rather as “we are” by how we reform them out of our memories and mental paradigm. We’re always remaking others in our own image according to our own beliefs, preferences, and judgments about them. Every single person that’s a part of the same event will form a different experience of it and tell a different story about it. This is because as humans we’re bestowed with the higher capacities of the mind and “create reality” out of our perception of it through a dynamic filtering system that operates by the principle of “natural selection”. When we’re governed by our emotions and exist in a constant reactive state, we live out of a primarily unconscious state as a subverted form of instinct. We engage in a constant form of automated processes that run redundant behavioral patterns over and over as a means of creating ourselves.

Summary

Once we understand the principle at work in emotions we can realize that anyone who lives out of a state of constant emotional reactions is always creating the present to be the same as the past. They’re constantly bringing the memories of the past into the present as the means of interpreting and perceiving the present events to mean the same thing and tell the same type of story about them. When we live out of the illusions created by our emotional reactions, we’re living and creating our life out of an unconscious state without any direct awareness of what we’re doing and why. We create illusions based on applying past memories to the present as a way of shaping them into the same type of story and experiencing them in the same way. Through awareness of how we act to create our own experiences, we can begin neutralizing the emotions of others being outwardly expressed and projected towards us, and can perceive things from a calm and relaxed state instead.

As we live out of constant emotional states we form our experiences of reality out of our beliefs and judgments about them rather than perceiving them in a neutral and unbiased way as they actually are. We take on our animalistic tendencies and create in an automatic and instinctual way by simply forming the same type of perceptions and behaviors over and over without realizing that we have to ability to change them and create in a more purposeful manner by choosing the meaning we give things and using our will to produce new types of experiences by learning how to tell a different type of story. As we begin recognizing our own emotionally driven tendencies we steadily empower ourselves to be able to think and create in new and more diverse ways.

Developing Clairvoyance – “Seeing the Spiritual World”

I often get asked if clairvoyance or intuition is 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 because we’re being ridiculed in some way, or because it can often seem a bit “spooky”. What we refer to as the “spiritual world” or “plane of existence” is primarily invisible to the material senses, and is filled with the mental activity of invisible forces as living forms of some kind. While these forms can seem different in many ways, but the two main ones are whether or not 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 exists as real for us internally and is what acts to ultimately make up our experience of reality.

Astral Plane and the World of Formation

Our mind as our feelings and thoughts are a natural part of the spiritual plane of natural forces that acts naturally to organize “light essence” into living forms in the faculty of the imagination. Our thoughts are also the way we naturally enter into relationship with these animated light forms and act, usually without knowing it, to influence them to different degrees, causing them to morph and fluctuate into unique variations of themselves. Our own thoughts that are heavily concentrated on for prolonged periods of time with strong feelings and emotions connected to them produce “thought-forms” within this plane that can linger for quite some time before eventually dissolving. The etheric body of the human spirit is also created within this plane, and is what’s used to create the lower soul of the material body as its blueprint for formation and regeneration, also called its double or twin, and though its mortal and dies with the body, also lingers for a period of time as the soul’s apparition before disintegrating.

This plane of “light 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 (thematic idea) to a well-formed idea as a personalization of that idea. The traditional “four elements” of the material world are what provides the primordial substance of the Astral Plane which is shaped by the mind into living forms that underlie and provide the basis for the material world as a dynamic living matrix of evolving forms.  All forms within this plane that characteristically change with our every thought or feeling, are all formed by the mineral elements and are made by humans as a “thought-form”. Those formed by the plant element change less readily in response to our thoughts and feelings, and those of animals, which have a personality of their own, change 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 imaginary form. These mental impressions, while never solid or opaque like the forms of the physical plane, can still be quite distinct as a “feeling about something” that forms a series of mental impressions as a chain of association that connect a series of ideas through their “inner nature” and the qualities they share in common. While many of us believe the spiritual world exists as a symbolic representation of the physical, it’s actually the opposite way around.  The material plane is actually comprised of symbolic representations of concentrated energy that are formed out of the universal archetypes of 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 the acquisition 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 direct or indirect response to them.

These energetic forms are the active primal intelligence’s of the subconscious mind that forms the Collective Unconscious of the instinctual field of Nature and are full of life and movement. Their mobility is largely due to the influence of our own thoughts and feelings, and to other causes that are 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 to influence us instead. Others are always interacting with us energetically as feelings and thoughts that form “in us” as a natural response to the feeling sensations we’re always acting as a receiver for that produce most of our subconscious activity. Because they operate in us at an unconscious level, we often have no direct awareness of the influence our thoughts and feelings 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” that have been created and maintained for extended periods of time 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 does. 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. We only have a negligible effect at best on most other forms, depending on what it is that causing 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 can be thought of as natural forces or actual entities (demons) that have a singular nature and express by creating realities that are of the same emotional nature. As we act to “receive an emotion” from outside of us through a form of transmission, it initiates a chain of association that determines what we focus on, remember and access as a past memory of the same emotion, what we think about and form into an internal representation, and how we behave and act as an automated pattern. 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 as an emotion exists in its universal form as containing endless potential for expression, that when drawn into a specific 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 of the same nature. The reality created through our reaction as an expression of it, amplifies and multiplies it, and we then draw more of the same emotion back into us as a memory of it.

Example – anger, while being universal in nature within the lower astral plane, is expressed in a somewhat different manner by every individual who experiences it, yet 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 it in a somewhat unique way while maintaining the basic characteristics assigned to anger, such as violent outbursts, yelling, criticizing, belittling, intimidating, attacking, aggression, hostility, or in other cases as intense feelings of frustration, overwhelm, severe anxiety, crying, or a temper tantrum of sorts. It’s an intense energy that’s expansive and has an explosive quality to it.

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 “sensed” around a person, regardless of how they appear, it’s experienced internally by activating these same qualities within us. 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 in their mental sphere or aura. 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 an illusory replication of the physical world, but reveals itself instead as forms that are quite different. Qualities that permeate and surround a physical form are seen as the images that are associated to the qualities that form possesses and actively expresses. The attributes of the forms “match” the quality of consciousness as shapes, behaviors or processes that are 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” and plants, is because certain qualities that produce specific behaviors in what we could think of as the instinctual field of the collective unconscious, which governs all of life on the planet earth, expresses through different species of animals as the form that’s associated with those behaviors as a “classification 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. In a similar way, 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 are attractive. 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. Their energetic form can be a combination of animal, plant, and mineral features that are also imbued with geometric designs that hold them together, and can be either comprised of neutral colors of mostly greys, or of vivid prismatic colors that are pure and intense.

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 a personal memory, except it doesn’t refer to the past in any way, but rather to the present and the 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 our experiences, and we simply observe them with a neutral and unbiased mind, they form the same type of mental impressions as a personal memory does as scenarios or moving images that form mental impressions in our imagination. The primary difference is these mental impressions lack “meaning” (in the personal sense), and exist purely by reasons that are 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 with the physical senses, that’s alive “within” the present situation, rather than being a form of personal memory resurrected from the past and reused to create the present as an illusion.

The mental impressions formed intuitively 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 seldom ever resemble the physical body they inhabit and act to animate, but rather the nature of the consciousness and behaviors being demonstrated as their “inner nature”. The images are symbolic in nature as a form of metaphor, rather than literal. 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

In the reverse sense, as we are stimulated by a feeling (vibration) it naturally forms a very distinct mental image as a “reality” (pattern) that expresses the feeling as a physical form. Vibration organizes astral light as “essence” into material forms through a self-organizing mechanism in the faculty of the imagination as our higher, spiritual senses. While many of us have been taught that the spiritual exists as symbolic of the material, in reality, the exact opposite is true. The spiritual, which is pure energy in its potential state, is what precedes and “organizes” the material form as being of the same “nature” (internal consciousness that emanates a pattern).  We have to reverse our way of thinking about things.

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 live-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 fully realize 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 thematic 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.

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 that serves to reform it.

The feeling that we get that are 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, reveals to us the nature of the energies as the forms their vibration naturally creates. These symbolic forms are the expression of the “qualities of consciousness” acting to birth them as realities on the astral plane of mental formation. All vibration has a pattern inherent in it as a theme along with a self-organizing mechanism that shapes essence into forms in the faculty of the imagination in a spontaneous and involuntary manner.

The imagination is the faculty of the mind that shapes astral light (plasma) as infused essence (electrified) into forms as the expression of the vibratory frequency it’s programmed with. The vibration as movement (life-force) 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’s 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

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. As it’s drawn down into an individual mind, the wave-form collapses around “one” potential as a possibility that’s used to form a single personalized reality. That reality then forms into a personal memory through the unique expression of it, and is then drawn back up the astral planes where it’s returned to its universal state as an archetype or pattern or generalized idea. This general idea as a kind of theme and basic form can then be used to create more experiences through using the memory as a general idea or template for creating more experiences of the same nature. All reality as an “experience” is shaped by the meaning it has for the individual receiving and interpreting it that evolves it through a series of modifications by how it’s adapted to fit a new set of conditions or a unique set of circumstances.

This memory (whether universal or personal – because one is used to create the other) when used repeatedly to perceive reality, creates a field of energy (consciousness) as an electromagnetic field that habituates it into a fixed pattern. Once it becomes a habitual thought process it acts as a theme for creating our life story by solidifying it as a thought-form (memory that’s used to create more memories of the same nature). This idea, once concentrated on by replaying it over and over in the imagination as a way of interpreting other ideas to mean the same thing, is cast into the astral light of mass consciousness as a fixed form, where it becomes a form of substitute for an original thematic idea as an universal archetype, and can be tuned into, accessed, and received by other minds who are of the same nature (frequency), who then also use it to create in a similar fashion as a basic life theme. 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 (re-configuration).

The world of thought-forms as a form of collection or accumulation of archetypes evolved by humans through various applications and personalization, is also what we refer to a mass consciousness or the “instinctual field” of the collective unconscious that produce natural behaviors that are conceived of unconsciously. This unified field of imprinted information is also referred to as the “Book of Life” or “Hall of Records” where every action (as a new vibration) is “recorded” (impressed) in the Akashic Field. These terms are all referring to the same idea, and is also the basis for the modern scientific discovery of morphogenic and torsion fields that act to populate the field of human instinct with subtle energy as the ghost-like, invisible energy that’s constantly being transmitted and received by like-minds, and serves to produce distinct physical properties as qualities and characteristics that produce behaviors as the expression of those characteristics.

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 as a deliberate act, but that “came to us” without our direct awareness (naturally). These thought-forms are 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 internal representations that form the basis for creating our personal memories out of. These universal ideas that populate 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.

Accurate and Objective Perception

One of the most basic mistakes we make in forming intuitive perceptions comes when we feel the need to interpret what we’re sensing by making it “mean something”. As soon as we start telling ourselves a story about what things mean, we move it from a neutral and universal status into a “personal creation”. The active component of our mind as the “story-teller” is always interacting with energy to reform it and change how it appears. As we think about something we change how it appears to us. We start making it about us instead of about the person, object, or situation that it’s a part of as their (its) internal nature. This is how we are always acting to “shape others to be like us”. Things only mean what we say they mean. What something means to us may be very different than what it means to the person demonstrating or emanating it. So in order to accurately perceive intuitively we have to resist the natural tendency to want to interpret it to make it mean something.

The most natural way to form a truly neutral observation of something is to form a detached perspective, where you dissociate from it and take on a passive form of observation called “witnessing”. The mind has the natural ability to influence and shape energy, and when in an active state of interpretation, it changes how things appear, distorting and corrupting it to fit its own needs and beliefs about it. In order to “receive information in its original and true form” we have to subdue the active component of our “thinking and storytelling mind”, and enter into a passive state where we observe it without any need to change it. We have to relinquish any needs, desires, or judgments we have regarding it.

As we create and maintain a calm sense of inner peace and detach from everything around us while taking on a perspective of simply observing it from a neutral state, we can begin seeing things as they truly are apart from us. As we take a position of simply witnessing something without needing to make it mean something, we begin seeing others and the world around us with new eyes. The witnessing faculty of the mind that simply observes things from a neutral state is the same faculty we use in order to act as a “receiver” for higher knowledge that comes to us only through meditative states where we simply act to absorb an idea and allow it to unfold within us without the need to “act on it” (interact with it) to change it in any way. This is the basis for the idea of being a “purified vessel” that’s necessary in order to conceive of higher knowledge without corrupting it to personal means.

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”.

Self-Mastery: Metamorphosis, Self-Creation, and the Art of Becoming

The true meaning of what we call “self-mastery” is our ability to master our own nature and resume conscious control over our higher capacities for creating ourselves. The fact is we’re always in the process of creating ourselves in every moment based on what we enter into relationship with, blend with energetically, and become like in nature. The mind, like the body, is comprised of vibrating essence that’s undergoing a constant process of metamorphosis by exchanging subtle energy with everything around it. The mind is a combination of both spirit and matter, and while it coagulates into temporary forms and becomes somewhat fixed and habitual in nature, it still remains in a constant flux and flow within the same fixed patterns and tendencies. The mind is what constitutes the inner nature and essence of form, and is what gives it its character and personality that determines how it functions and behaves, and what type of stories it naturally participates in.

Nothing can be truly “known” unless it’s experienced and lived. We “become” by way of our self-created experiences. In order to know ourselves in a certain way, we have to create an experience of it. By experiencing it, we get a sense of ourselves as the experience, and identify with “being that way”. The more experiences we have of a certain nature, the more firmly we become identified with being of the same nature. This is how we’re “conditioned” through the dramas and dynamics being played out that we’re a part of that serve to shape our personality and inner nature as our constitution and character. Once the initial pattern is established, we then act unconsciously to generate more and more of the same type of experiences as the outer expression of our inner nature that acts simultaneously to create us through habitual tendencies. The mind is fluid, malleable, and fixed simultaneously, and readily shapes into patterns as a self-organizing mechanism that then undergoes a constant state of re-organizing its essential structure by blending with other natures (minds) of a similar, yet diverse nature.

The Nature of the Mind as the Monad

The mind, as a combination of both spirit (archetypes) and matter (essence), forms a sphere of stabilized energy as an electromagnetic field of alternating currents, referred to in modern science as a Torus, and simply as a “sphere” or “Monad” in Spiritual Sciences. This electromagnetic sphere of energy is comprised of information that’s constantly being absorbed, broke down to complementary terms, then assimilated and synthesized into an overall information matrix, upgrading and modifying it. All energy as vibration contains information as patterns that produce form structured by an inherent self-organizing mechanism. The main frequency for our information matrix as our mental paradigm or “model of the world” is always absorbing and integrating other information of a similar nature, and reorganizing itself by incorporating.

We can only resonate with and thereby absorb into our mind information that’s of the same or similar frequency (nature) to us. While all have what we can call a “consistent frequency” that we vibrate at as our core, habitual frequency (mind-set), it can still act to attract, draw in, and integrate information that’s somewhat different yet close enough in nature that it serves to grow and evolve our model by expanding it. Other information that’s too different in nature and can’t be readily incorporated, that’s vibrating at a frequency to far apart from ours, can’t be recognized or understood, and so we can’t serve as a channel for it to manifest through us. For this reason, evolution only comes through a constant process of “learning by becoming one with other spheres” and steadily modifying our vibration and inner nature through gradual increments. When learning stops, growth stops, and we become fixed and start dying.

The mind-field as a Torus (sphere), represented in Sacred Geometry by the “Flower of Life” as a sphere of complementary electromagnetic currents circulating in opposite directions simultaneously within the same space, both expands and contracts as a form of respiration. As it expands out to a peripheral boundary, it’s simultaneously attracting and repulsing information, then turns back towards its core and draws the magnetized information into itself for metabolizing. As its vibration shifts through the incorporation of new energy, it no longer resonates with old, outdated information vibrating at a different rate, and it’s eliminated from the system as a form of waste by exhaling and sending it back out into the space around us as a form of recycling. So we’re constantly in the process of organizing and reorganizing ourselves as an energetic matrix of knowledge attained by blending into it and becoming of the same nature.

Sexual Union

The Sexual Principle

We’re always mixing and blending into the spheres of intelligent energy around us through the natural activity of the subconscious mind. We do this naturally and without any direct awareness of what’s taking place, and what’s acting “on” and “in” us to create us. As we blend and mix with other mind-fields, we take on the same nature and essence and start becoming like them in nature. This is a natural form of influence that’s going on all the time through the relationships we naturally form with everyone and everything around us. Whomever we associate with on a regular basis, we start becoming like in attitude and outlook, mind-set, emotions, thoughts, behaviors and tendencies, and so on. The stronger and more intimate the relationship, the more it effects and transforms us. No bond is greater than sexual intercourse, or mother and child, where an actual “fusion” takes place, or the child grows in and is produced by the same nature as the mother.

Anyone that we’ve had sexual intercourse with we permanently bond with in nature and essence, shaping us morally and determining our destiny through a shared nature. This is why marriage was only consummated through sexual intercourse where two people became “as one in spirit and mind”, and began operating as a single entity. This principle is represented in modern quantum physics by an “interference pattern”, formed by two fields of the same frequency blending together, altering the frequency of both to form a new coherent frequency, and “entanglement” where any two particles (entities) that are “born together” or become entangled (fuse energetically), become “as one” and continue to function as the same nature or frequency even when separated by great distances. This is often hard for us to understand in practical terms because it happens at the subtle level of the subconscious mind that operates automatically without our direct awareness. This is how we form “karmic bonds” with people that last throughout time where we continue incarnating together through a shared energetic (spiritual) nature that cooperatively plays out a joint experience of reality.

The Principles of Sacred Geometry

In Spiritual Sciences this same idea is represented in Sacred Geometry as the Tetrad, where the Monad (sphere of consciousness) blends into and forms union with a regenerated aspect of itself as an energetic marriage of polar opposites. This marriage forms the Dyad as the “womb of the universe”, and together produce a new inner nature as the Triad (subtle body), which then provides the foundation for the outer reality of the Tetrad as its offspring(physical body). This symbolizes the “three in one” principle of all single entities being comprised of complementary opposites who interact to form a third, functional aspect as a new and unique combination of shared qualities. Our inner nature is always mingling with everything around us, fluctuating and changing, yet stable and consistent, forming our perception of reality and all of our actions and deeds.

As we go through life, we’re always exchanging energy and information with others and our environment, experiencing ourselves by way of the exchange in new and varied ways, and transforming our identity by way of the experiences it brings. This is the process we develop our ego through as our identification with the material world. Likewise, this is also the process we use to form our identity in and intentional and purposeful way. All of our life events and our relationship with others provide us with a kind of “moral test” where we’re attracted to and seduced by other people’s nature and actions. As we enter into relationship with them and the activities they naturally engage in and take on the same qualities as a result, and we like how we become and thereby start identifying with being that type of person, we become the same in nature and are ultimately corrupted by it at the soul level. As we transform ourselves to “lower energies”, those born out of desire for pleasure and personal gain of some kind, that strengthens our identification with material things, we can no longer serve as the vehicle for “higher energies”, and we cut ourselves off from our spiritual source as the result. We condemn our soul to the material existence our identity is dependent on for creating ourselves, and that “false identity” dies with the body that birthed and sustained it.

        In all forms of initiation as spiritual growth and awakening a process of self-purification is necessary as the first step, because all higher knowledge can only come “through” a nature that’s of a similar or equivalent nature. One that’s of a similar morality and vibratory frequency in terms of its moral character. We can only “attain” knowledge through our ability to become one with it as an experience of it. Higher, spiritual knowledge only comes through direct experience, not as a theory that’s recited and talked about but never brought into practice. All spiritual knowledge is a practice of some kind that produces and experience of it “as” it. We only learn by living. So a purification process is the prerequisite and foundation necessary for becoming a vehicle for higher knowledge. We purify ourselves through conscious use of the same creative process of what we’re identified with and use as the means of creating our experiences.

We’re always forming an amalgamation with the nature of others as the means of becoming “like them”. The Higher Soul exists in a constant purified state that’s symbolically represented by gold. This is because of the properties gold naturally possesses that allows it to blend with and form a new solid (fixed form) with other metals, that can then be reheated and returned to a liquid state where it separates from the other metals and resumes its natural constitution as “pure gold”. Gold is soft and malleable in its natural state, and only hardens into a rigid and fixed shape when combined with other profane metals. This is the same property the soul possesses in being able to blend with other essences, becoming stabilized and fixed in form as a result, then through active use of the will, separate from the essence it took on and return to its pure unadulterated nature. Gold is also “non-reactive”, and so it never tarnishes or corrodes. In order to maintain the soul in a purified state, we have to neutralize ourselves to the emotional states that govern the material plane and not “react” to them or be altered by them in any way.

Temptation

The true test of “temptation” is when we’re not tempted at all by it because we’re not identified with it and it’s not “in us” as a part of us. We’re only tempted by things and idea we have a desire for, feel a strong connection to, and form a natural reaction to in some way. We’re seduced by the experience it offers that we use in turn to shape ourselves through. When we find something repulsive or disgusting, we’re still using it to shape ourselves through the experience of our reaction to it. Any reaction is a form of corruption because we’re still forming our identity based on the experience the adverse reaction gives us. We shape our identity by contrasting and opposing it, so we’re still identified with it and literally being controlled and determined by the material world. The whole process of spiritual purification and assuming our true identity comes by not being effected by the material world or the nature and behavior of others.

This is forming the recognition of the true nature of things as the spiritual world as the mind and internal nature of things being what “animates and determines” them, and not the other way around. The spiritual world has supremacy over the material world and is what acts to create it and give it life. Once we become identified with our higher nature by “becoming it” in essence, material forms and ideas no longer affect us and don’t cause a reaction of any kind “in us”. We no longer act to “draw in” and become one with them as a joint experience of the same nature, and remain in a neutral state in relationship to them. When purified (mentally, emotionally, and physically) and embodying higher levels of consciousness, we become a vehicle and instrument for higher powers that are neutral and unbiased to the actions and nature of others, where we’re never controlled or determined by them.

The Nature of Compassion

By acquiring a thorough understanding of how this process works through the Law of Vibration and Resonance, we can begin working with it in an intentional manner to self-create while forming compassion for others. We can “blend with” and then “un-blend” with others at will. We can blend with those whose character traits we want to awaken in us, actively express, and become identified with, then dissolve the connection once that has been achieved. We can also learn how to dissolve our bond with those who are of poor character or never form a relationship with them to begin with. By intentionally entering into and becoming one with the nature of another and “experience life as they do”, we can become compassionate and truly see and understand them as they are. Then we can separate ourselves from them and return to our normal state a part from them. When this becomes a conscious process undertaken with full awareness of what we’re doing and why, we don’t become a permanent part of them by beginning to participate in the same reality from the same perspective as a drama of some kind because we relate to them and begin identifying with them. This is what happens when it’s an unconscious process that takes place without our awareness or intention.

True compassion is a demonstration of self-mastery as the conscious application of law. We can only create on any given plane by utilizing the laws governing that plane. We have to enter into the sphere of that plane, becoming of the same nature as it is, and work with the experience it naturally produces while still maintaining full awareness of our self and our intention for doing so and not get lost in the experience of it. It’s easy to get lost in the illusion of the experience because it’s so real it draws us into it through a form of reverie and we lose memory of ourselves as being apart from it and recognition of the truth that’s operating through it. Whenever we get caught up in an experience where we’re truly and intimately involved and participating in it as part of it, we enter into a primarily unconscious state. It requires constant practice and full awareness in order to maintain an awareness of the laws involved that are making the experience possible. Once we can get to the point where we can stay aware of what’s going on through the whole process, we can begin using it as a profound tool for our own spiritual growth and advancement by becoming an instrument for Higher Powers to work in the world through sole identification with our Higher, Universal Self that’s not subject to reality, but is instead the one that’s orchestrating it.

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

The formula for multiple levels of self-creation as a dynamic combination of the spirit, soul, mind, and body, currently being re-discovered by modern science, was laid out as a diagram illustrating the “subtle bodies” in Esoteric Sciences thousands of years ago. This map of the subtle bodies was used as the basis for all forms of healing and self-development, and as the means of achieving self-mastery which was necessary in order to consciously undergo the process of personal transformation from a lower state of consciousness to a higher one. This diagram illustrated the hierarchical relationship of the mind and body as fields nested within fields that brought an idea as an invisible archetypal field of information into physical form through the principles represented by the five elements. It showed a physical body with various layers of an outer aura or electromagnetic field as the etheric plane which formed the blueprint for the physical body, the astral or emotional body, the mental plane of thought, and the causal field of archetypes and Will. While we have a tendency to separate parts of a whole, then create a whole out of the part while imagining that it functions independently as a separate entity from the whole in which it was abstracted, the fact is every single aspect of a whole operates according to the same principles and can’t be accurately understood as a separate state. All material bodies as we know them are accompanied by an electromagnetic field that acts to organize the individual particles into a whole living system as a “field of information”. Yet this isn’t an entirely accurate model either, because in reality all biological forms come as a process of cellular regeneration , where one cell replicates itself and divides to become two, which then replicates and divides to become four, then eight, then sixteen, and so on, and grows through a process of “halving and doubling”. All cells contain information as DNA for producing every aspect of the whole body, where cells differentiate and specialize by what aspects of the total information are turned on and off, forming a new configuration. Our entire body forms a hologram where the part exists and contains the information of the whole, and the whole exists as or in each part. What we refer to as the electromagnetic field that accompanies all physical form, which of course is invisible, exists as what we also refer to as the “mind” of the body, and the “phantom effect” produced by DNA itself as a measurable field of organized information as what has traditionally been called the “etheric body”, or subtle body which is holographic in nature as a three-dimensional form that’s the exact duplicate of the material body. This “holographic, phantom-like form” is what we now know provides the blueprint for organizing and spatially locating the specialized cells within the body. This energetic field both organizes the information in the DNA to produce a duplicate as its twin in physical form, and radiates from within the DNA as a means of “informing the space around it”. Just as all atoms are comprised of a group of particles held together forming an intelligent living system by an invisible force, the whole body is fabricated through a process of regeneration, held together, vitalized, and operated by an invisible force called the “subtle body” which is itself produced and operated by the mind.

       Science has now discovered and proven that matter is composed of light as “packets of information” that exist simultaneously as both a particle (local) and a wave (non-local). These packets of information as subtle energy are organized into a coherent field of information as the subtle body, which provides the etheric blueprint (hologram) for creating the body as a projection of the mind and soul. What appears as trillions of cells that make up our whole body are actually the “same cell” duplicated, differentiated, and multiplied to form a “greater whole” as specialized functions of the same thing.  DNA is composed of both matter and etheric substance that’s organized by an electromagnetic field that produces a holographic form as the “potential” contained within the information.  The molecular structure of our body operates in a unified manner where the DNA within the nucleus or brain of the cell receives, processes and interprets, and transmits information instantaneously “as” a whole – as if it’s one field or body – and interacts with and responds to the outer reality as a relationship with itself on a greater scale. Information doesn’t follow a physical pathway of communication from cell to cell, nor is it transmitted through the nervous system, but received by the DNA of each cell instantaneously at the exact same time. The body (any living organism) is formed through the holographic principle where every cell of the body results from the regeneration of a single cell through the process of mitosis, and is all in fact one and the same thing formed from a single (double helix) strand of DNA as the basic information used to construct the body. They’re all formed by the same group of information as memory, and become unique parts that perform specialized functions based on how the information is reconfigured through a “switching system” that turns information within the cell on and off, forming dynamic sequences. The part becomes the whole, and the whole is contained within the part. If we take any part (cell) out of the whole system we’ve  got all the information it takes to make the entire organism in the single cell. DNA, when abstracted and separated from the body it originated in, still continues to respond as if it’s still a part of the body. It’s still a part of the “unified field” from whence it came through a state of energetic “entanglement”. The part contains the properties of both the particle and the wave, and exists as both simultaneously and continues to operate according to the duality of light (photons), which is the primary substance of matter. It operates according to the principles of particle/wave duality. Light and matter (which is essentially the same thing) exhibit both properties of a wave and particle as a single entity that exists throughout space and time, and can act on itself to interfere with itself when demonstrating wave-like properties, and influences itself into new and varied configurations by acting to turn different aspects on or off. Each cell of a whole body vibrates to the exact same frequency, and frequencies as electromagnetic fields propagate through space, which acts as a medium for them.

       Light is made up of “packets of information”, much like an atom is formed out of a cluster of particles, as energy quanta called photons. Photons exist as a “wave of potential or possibility”, much like all the information contained in a single strand of DNA, and only appears as a stable material form (particle) when organized or frozen into a specific configuration by the mind that interacts with it, and then returns to a flow of photons as a wave function when not being organized by a mind. While we have been taught to see an atom as an organized system of particles rotating around a nucleus in a fixed manner, we now know that this isn’t true. The atom only appears as a fixed and stable system when it’s being “viewed” and perceived by the mind. When no one is “looking at it”, it returns to a wave of potential that appears as a blur or astral cloud-like substance. This ability of the mind to organize matter operates in the same manner or according to the same principle as the etheric body that provides the energetic blueprint for regenerating and multiplying one cell to create a unified field of information as a whole body comprised of billions of cells that continues to function through time and space as if it’s “one”. Matter, which can be thought of as “frozen light” or the “crystallization of light”, exists as an electrical organism (mechanism) that’s operated through electrical impulses as a photoelectric effect of one or more photons propagating through space as electromagnetic waves. Wave-particle duality is a property not only of light, but of matter as well, because of course matter is ultimately composed of photons in its primary essence. The entire material world is composed of crystallized light produced by electromagnetic fields as intelligent subtle energy also referred to as the “mind” and the individual consciousness of the mind called the “soul”. While many people tend to think in terms of separating the spiritual from the material, in reality they’re the same thing at different stages and phases of “becoming” as electrified or charged plasma that organizes a etheric form that acts to systematically produce a material form through a steady process of solidification (coagulation) or generation. The four “states of matter” are described as electrified plasma that forms a gas-like substance, which becomes a liquid, which then becomes a solid object. This can also be illustrated through the element of water, which exists in different states as plasma or air, as humidity, a liquid and a solid material when frozen. All of which are different states of the same thing. These stages of forming the material world correspond to the four elements (fire, air, water, and earth) of esoteric sciences, which are organized, formed, and given life through the fifth element of the Aether or the mind of the soul.

        What science now calls “Entanglement Theory” basically states that whatever is “born together” (as in the cells of the body), or that become energetically entangled and vibrate in harmony as the same frequency and nature (mind and soul of the body), operates as a single unit, and continues to operate as one even when separated by great distances. They exist in a fundamental state of polarity as complementary opposites, which means they spin in opposite directions to each other, and whatever property is being measured (observed and fixated by the mind) in one, the other one instantaneously reflects the same property. As the “state” of one particle or cell changes, the state of all entangled parts change in a unified movement because they exist as being a part of the same field, which exists everywhere throughout the space-time continuum simultaneously. They exist as what appears to be individual particles and as an inherent part of the same field of information. What’s of the “same nature” influences each other, no matter where they’re located in the unified field, through their shared “state of mind” and emotions. This has huge implications not only in terms of our own minds ability to organize and transform our physical body as a correspondence to it, but also explains the mystery of being able to “produce and effect” or heal somebody at a distance with a small amount of their blood or locket of hair, or anything that contains their DNA. By “acting to transform the chemical make-up of their DNA” in the sample provided, it simultaneously produces the same effect in every cell of the body, no matter how far away. Likewise, by tuning into the person by speaking their name several times while concentrating (words connect us to the reality inherent in the words) on them, we can intuitively connect with them mentally and influence them through our state of mind, altering their state and the thought-processes and emotions produced by that state, altering their DNA as a result. This same effect is produced through direct communication by what we say to someone that causes them to imagine the reality of our words as a possibility for experience, and forming a belief out of them as a result. This also gives us insight as to how we are literally transformed (to some degree) through sexual intercourse where we “acquire” some of the other persons DNA, and they ours, and become somewhat subject to their thoughts, emotional states, and actions as taking on the same “morality” and aligning ourselves with the same type of destiny. We literally become one with whomever we have sexual intercourse with.

The Astral Plane of Emotion Emotion is the “language” of the material plane that also governs instinct and intuition. It’s the dominant property of the lower regions of the astral plane of formation, and the language of the subconscious mind, which is the same level and aspect of the mind we share with the natural world and the plant and animal kingdoms. It’s the energy that’s transmitted within the material plane as notions, urges, and mental impressions that spontaneously alters our state producing automatic behaviors that are systematically employed without direct awareness. In humans, who are bestowed with higher creative capacities of the mind, emotions go a step further in how they affect us by acting to produce whole imaginary realities as illusions that we use in place of the actual, objective reality, that’s produced by the memories associated with the emotion that provides a template for automatic behaviors. All behavior in the ultimate sense is emotionally driven or a product of will, which can override emotion and direct the subconscious with new behaviors based on reason, realization, and rational calculated thinking. Emotions, which originate in the electromagnetic plane, come in a variety of ways as either a natural response to our own thoughts, as a transmission and thought-form from another being outwardly expressing emotions, as an instinctual response to a feeling or idea, or as a form of association to a memory that was created while in the same emotional state. As we form an emotional response to something we automatically reference a memory of a similar nature that was created while in that same emotional state that provides us with a form of template for creating an imaginary reality as an internal representation that we use in place of the actual or present reality making it out to be the same as the past experience. This imaginary reality based on memory of some kind provides the template as a story-line or theme that we use for creating an illusion that provides us with an instant interpretation as the means of creating more of the same type of idea, causing us to act in the same way we did in the past situation of a similar nature. In this way, through natural emotional reactions, we engage in a natural form of instinct as intuition that uses memory in place of the intellect and reasoning to create more of the same type of ideas, experiences, and behaviors over and over based on past experiences. Through our emotional states and the automatic behaviors they produce, we continue to create the present to be like the past through an unconscious state that doesn’t require thought or use of choice and free will.

The Subconscious Mind The subconscious mind operates without direct awareness to produce realities out of memories, and reactive behaviors that are automatic and emotionally driven. The subconscious is the same aspect of the mind we share with all of nature and is what literally produces the substratum of material reality as the collective unconscious or group mind, and automatic functions of the body and behaviors that are involuntary in nature and don’t require a thought process or decision of any kind. It’s the aspect of the mind that forms our “body consciousness”, which operates and informs the DNA of our body by influencing it through emotional states produced by thoughts as actual or imagined realities. The subconscious is the “active mind” and is continuously active from the moment of conception and birth till our last breath and moment of physical death. While our self-conscious mind is only awake and active part of the time, our subconscious is continuously active and never sleeps, yet it operates for the most part without our direct awareness. The Relationship between Thought and Emotion Thought and emotion, which can also be seen as masculine and feminine aspects of the same thing, operate as “one” and one serves to automatically produce and influence the other. When descending as a downward movement from the higher, causal plane, we form a thought process in our mind as an idea that naturally stimulates an emotional state in response to it. The emotion married to the thought acts as the “physical equivalent” to the thought and systematically adjusts the chemistry of the body to match the reality produced by the thought. As we think we’re simultaneously regulating the chemistry of the body to produce the physical reality of our thoughts. The subconscious, which is experiential in nature and works through the imagination, doesn’t know the difference between a memory of an actual event or an imaginary one. This is because they’re both produced by the faculty of the imagination, and memories, once created, are replayed over and over through the imagination as a way of keeping the past alive in the present and using the same type of information, much like a feedback loop, to keep re-informing the body and our outer reality with the same type of information, producing a “consistent and congruent” version of our self and our experience of ourselves in our outer reality.

DNA as the Creative Intelligence of the Body and Outer Reality The DNA of our body operates according to the same principles of both our self-conscious and subconscious mind, and is regulated primarily through our emotional states and imaginary thoughts. We are literally always creating our own physical constitution and character by how we inform our DNA, and organizing our outer reality through the electromagnetic field emanated by our DNA that interacts energetically with the DNA in every other living entity. The entire material world is formed by the information contained in DNA. As we think and form an emotional response to our own thoughts we literally act to “structure the reality” of our thoughts through the “meaning” they have. Thought and emotion form meaning as the basis for creating our experiences. Out of meaning comes the story we tell ourselves as a form of theme that provides us with a consistent version of reality that provides the basis for how we experience things. DNA works to construct material form out of memory in much the same way that the subconscious mind, soul, and the archetypal realm of higher consciousness as “universal memory” does, all of which play off of each other and are used as the means for creating personal experiences that are formed out of the meaning and significance of something. We form personal memories out of the experiences we had of the events of our life that had a strong emotional impact. Events with little or no emotional impact are never really remembered in any detail, but merely as vague generalizations or forgotten all together. Events that had strong emotions associated with them, determine how we form the memory as the experience of it, which was shaped by the nature of the emotion we were experiencing at the time. The event itself merely sets the stage for enacting a theme of sorts that shapes how we experience it by the type of story we tell ourselves about it. The emotion the event invoked in us, determines the nature of how we created our experience of it through the “telling”. The same basic event and group of elements can be used to tell a story as a serious drama, adventure, comedy, or tragedy based on the emotion engendered and the type of reality that’s naturally inherent in the emotion. Emotions have very distinct types of experiences and fantasies inherent in them that form how we experience life and create ourselves (program our subconscious and DNA) by way of our experiences. Our thoughts and emotions, which form the internal representations born in our imagination that we use to give things meaning, also act to inform and program our DNA, which, like the subconscious mind, acts as a receiver for information that it translates to produce instructions for organizing the material world. These emotional thoughts are produced by the union of the self-conscious and subconscious based on current life experiences and memories, and from the higher mind of archetypal memory that forms “original thought” that acts to transform and evolve our current creation by recomposing it through the integration of new and diverse information. The common denominator between reality as a neutral set of events that we use as the means of creating our experiences out of and the subconscious mind and DNA, as memory, (of the Soul, subconscious, DNA, and archetypes) is semantics. How we organize the cells of our body and the appearance of the outer world, which is always a correspondence to the inner world, is based on the meaning we give things as our perception of them that form our “life story”. It’s through meaning that we self-create and create our experience of our outer reality.

       DNA acts as the link and medium between the mind and material reality and is programmed or informed in an evolutionary manner through our very thoughts and emotions and the imaginary realities we create out of them. It’s through the imagination that we program the subconscious and DNA as a set of instructions, which produce the equivalent as an experience of reality. Not necessarily by changing reality itself, but rather by changing how reality appears to us based on how we interpret it to give it meaning. As we think, feel, emote, and act, we’re producing a form of etheric template that provides the blueprint as an electromagnetic field of information for organizing how the material world “appears” to us. We self-create by way of our own thoughts and emotions in the most basic and rudimentary sense of the idea. Both the subconscious and DNA, which is the conscious intelligence that organizes and structures material form, are “experiential” in nature, and operate out of memory as imagined experiences produced by a combination of thought, feeling sensations that make it real and elicit an emotion, altering the chemistry of the body to match the state of mind. These all work together in a synchronistic and congruent manner to produce an imaginary reality that has meaning as a way of experiencing it through the story we tell ourselves about it that creates a form of self-perpetuating “feedback loop”. Through the nature of our thoughts we’re always in the process of telling ourselves a story about everything that has a consistent meaning that we use as the means of literally creating ourselves and our experience of reality. If we change the nature of our story, we change ourselves and our world accordingly. As we think, feel, and imagine the reality of our thoughts, we systematically create ourselves (program our subconscious and DNA) and our outer world as congruent correspondences to our inner imagining. We are literally the ones always creating ourselves by way of how we’re using all levels of our mind in unison to create experiences in our imagination that become the instructions as a projection and transmission for creating our reality. As we program our subconscious and DNA, the electromagnetic field of information that they produce acts to inform the subconscious and DNA of everything else in the outer, natural world of which they are an inherent part of, and through electrical impulses as resonance, acts to reconfigure it by turning some information off while turning other information on, composing it into a new variable as a personal creation. Our mind as a mental paradigm, vibratory frequency and dynamic pattern literally acts to influence, recompose and transform of field of potential into one possibility that matches our idea about it. Every person creates a unique version of reality through their perception of it.

The Law of Correspondences All parallel planes that make up the four dimensional material world and the higher spiritual world of pure energy as unformed consciousness, exist in a natural relationship to each other as complementary opposites that are polar in nature. The activity that takes place on one plane propagates through all related planes as a series of correspondences or chain of association. The same vibration as a form of note or chord that is part of a whole octave resonates with that same chord on all higher and lower octaves. As they resonate, the passive aspect of one acts to draw in and absorb the active aspect of the same idea from a parallel plane, which influences it, altering its vibration and modifying the existing pattern to a new possibility for the same idea as a natural means of transformation that gradually evolves the form to a new kind or level. As we draw in energy as vibratory information from the space around us and synthesize it by becoming one with it in mind, we begin vibrating in harmony with it and it modifies our thought processes through the realization it brings, changing how we see ourselves and our world. The most natural and immediate way we have of creating ourselves and developing our character that simultaneously modifies and transforms our physical body and outer reality, is by learning how to keep our body in a relaxed state while stilling our mind of random habitual thoughts, and focusing our attention on the idea of what we want to create. It’s only through deep states of concentration on an idea as an imagined experience of reality, that’s defined and developed with detail over an extended period of time that serves to invoke an equivalent emotion, that’s then thought about or “remembered” in a consistent fashion, that we create a “virtual memory” as an intentional form of “self-programming”. By controlling and directing our thoughts and what we imagine as possible scenarios, or what memories we dwell in and think about in a repetitive manner, we can regulate our emotional state and “act on ourselves” to reprogram ourselves with a corresponding reality. All ideas exist in a primary state of infinite potential for that idea as a kind of theme. The theme employed acts to produce the mental correspondence as our identity and character, the bodily correspondence as our physical health and constitution, and the outer correspondence as our perception of reality. All of which act together to form the story we tell by living it as the means for developing and evolving our soul, mind, physical constitution, and perception of reality through the same memory as a fundamental form of programming.

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

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

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

The Soul and the Nature of the Mind

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

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

The Lower Mind of the Animal Body

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

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

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

The Higher-Self

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

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

Original Thought as Inspired Ideas      

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

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

The Nature of True Guidance

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Power of Fear – Creating Reality as the Outcome of Ignorance

       Whatever we form a fear around we naturally use our mind to imagine as a highly charged reality that we then react to emotionally, intensifying it. Whatever we think about with emotional intensity becomes a kind of prophecy as a prediction that forms a kind of “request”. Fear acts as a powerful emotional “hook” that acts to grab and consume us, running our imagination, forming an illusion that we literally act to manifest as an experience. Fear exists as a “state of mind” that we employ and embody, tuning ourselves energetically too the frequency of the fear as an imagined experience of the reality it implies, becoming a “magnet” where we literally “draw to us” what we fear. Our mind’s natural ability to create our experiences of life comes through what ideas we allow to penetrate our mind while turning them into an inner reality by continuing to think about and imagine them as an actual experience. This imagined experience provides the subconscious mind with a “pattern” that mimics an actual memory, which it then uses to connect with that same idea in the outer environment while simultaneously producing the behaviors that serve to initiate and produce the outer equivalent of the inner reality. For this reason, fear can be thought of as one of the most “incorrect uses” of our creative power to manifest our own reality that stems from a basic form of ignorance as to how our mind works to produce our reality. Anything that works out of the basis of fear is producing a fundamental error. Whenever we’re taught to “fear God” (or the gods), for example, we make a fundamental error in the use of our own creative power. Whatever we think about becomes the nature of our experience. When we “act” based on fear of some kind, our very actions validate and produce the reality of our fear as a “belief” in it. Our belief in what we fear creates the vibration of the reality of the fear “in us” and we become magnetized with it. It becomes an “attraction factor” as a form of self-fulfilling prophecy. When we “foresee” danger from any given source, and take the steps we think will prevent it, we actually act unknowingly to predict it (set an intention for it), and literally act in an unconscious way to produce the outcome of our prediction. All thought, in its most basic sense, is a form of revelation and prophecy.

        Whatever state-of-mind we employ, we tune ourselves to energetically and act to “draw in” (resonate with and absorb) the consciousness of the fear itself as unseen forces in our immediate environment, or what we’ve come to call spirits, entities, and daemons (words that were fashioned to describe and explain the actions and operations of what can only be felt as emotions of some sort), that act to excite the imagination and produce internal realities as illusions. Yet these forces only exist through the power of our own consciousness and are a product of our imagination (astral light). We set our vibration as a frequency through our state-of-mind, and act to resonate with and absorb from the atmosphere around us (sympathetic induction) whatever thoughts and emotions match and serve to produce the internal imagined reality of our thoughts, intentions, expectations, beliefs, etc. We literally invest in the belief of what we fear by thinking about it while living out of the state-of-mind it produces, and as a result we act naturally to create it using our own willpower. All will is of the imagination. Whatever we imagine with intensity, and dwell in for an extended period of time, we act to create as a personal experience. We are literally the one producing it, just as we produce all of our experiences. It (the reality of the fear) doesn’t exist independent of us. We draw in and organize the information necessary to form a believable reality of what we fear, then we anticipate it, predict it by setting a form of intention for it (foreseeing it), and expect it to happen while taking the necessary ‘precautions” to prevent it, often without realizing that the precautions are actually what’s producing it because it demonstrates a belief that what we fear is going to happen. It’s a very basic form of psychology that works through the subconscious mind that’s extremely effective. Fear causes people to use their mind and actions to cooperatively produce the reality of their fear. They all join together to take the precautionary actions to control, prevent, or overcome what they fear is real, and as a result, invest faith in, and together produce the reality of it. Whatever we form a belief in or around, becomes a perceptual filter and we begin perceiving it in every situation, and produce it in our imagination as an illusion even when it’s not “actually there” as a form of paranoia. We always “see” whatever we believe is there to see, because what we’re “seeing” in any given situation is a product of our own mind and imagination. This is very easy to see by simply looking at two people about to engage in the same activity, one is afraid, the other enthused, and simply look at what each is focused on as a form of anticipation, what they talk about, how they prepare, and how they experience the activity as a result. It’s the same activity or neutral event, two different mindsets that produce two entirely different experiences. Fear is used as the number one form of marketing and mass (or individual) control. A fear is created through a suggestion delivered with an emotional charge, then dramatized and embellished to intensify the fear, and then a “solution” is offered that promises “safety” from the fear. This keeps people doing whatever it is you want them to do, and act willingly and often eagerly to pay for and support whatever you’re seeking support for. Fear is considered a primary form of ignorance, because it’s the most basic way we misuse our mind and will to create our experience of reality. Fear is created in the imagination through a thought that’s emotionally intense. Strong emotion itself can cause fear as a surprised or shocked response that excites the imagination. Once afraid and harboring that mental state, we act to attract and absorb the elements in any situation that will serve to cooperatively produce the reality of our fear. We make the fear come true by forming it in our mind, seeing it in everything around us, and talking about it with others. All reality exists as neutral and objective in nature, regardless of what’s happening, and any threat or danger can be seen clearly without responding to it in a fearful manner. Fear itself as a reaction to an idea or event doesn’t exist independent of the mind that’s creating it. The mind itself is what acts to produce the reality by imagining it with intensity and strong emotions, then experiencing it as though it were true and actually real.

        This is the number one principle that must be fully understood and mastered in order to do any serious spiritual and psychological work. If you set up beforehand in any situation to “protect yourself”, you have to ask, what are you protecting yourself from? The act of protecting is the belief that you need protection from some outside source that can and will harm you in some way. This belief is the most basic form of ignorance there is, because it’s only the fear itself that can cause harm, not from outside sources, but from the vicious thoughts of your own ego. The human mind is bestowed with the higher capacities of creation as thought that shapes internal realities that become the basis for manifesting outer experiences. As we think and imagine, we form an emotional reaction to our own thoughts, and become magnetized with those emotions. This means we not only act to automatically absorb and give expression to more of the same type of emotions that serve to form all of our thoughts, but we also use them as our perceptual lens and filtering system, that acts to filter out whatever doesn’t match our belief, keeping prominent and in a heightened state in any situation only what does, and mentally reorganizing it into the configuration as the reality of our interpretation of what is in fact, a neutral and non-personal set of circumstances. When living out of a state of fear, we see that fear everywhere we look. It becomes a basic part of our rudimentary reality. The fear comes by how we’re using our mind, or should I say how we’re allowing our mind to be used by another will to create the reality they’re planting in our mind through an emotionally intense suggestion of some sort. As the sensationalized suggestion is given, we willingly take it in as fact without censoring, evaluating, or judging it (discriminating), and begin thinking about it, turning it into a full-fledged sensory reality in our mind’s eye in a matter of seconds. Once formed into a reality, we produce an emotional response to our own thoughts that alters the chemistry of our body (through our endocrine system) to match the state of our thoughts as a physical equivalent. This produces a natural form of stress as a “fight or flight response” that keeps us in a heightened and prolonged state of awareness as a form of paranoia. While in a stressed state, blood flow is reduced in the brain and redirected to the extremities to prepare for action, based on the reality that’s causing the stress. This produces a heightened emotional state as a form of anxiety that prevents us from being able to think clearly. It returns us to an “instinctual state” of acting based on emotional impulses rather than clear and decisive thought that’s accurately evaluating and forming an appropriate response to the situation at hand. Through emotional charges of some sort attached to ideas, we can control the thoughts, emotions, and behaviors of others, and likewise, we’re controlled by the ones being given to us by others. When we work through a masterful knowledge of psychology, force isn’t necessary. By simply planting the proper suggestion (emotionally charged thought) in a person’s mind, they will use their own mind and imagination (will) to create the reality of that thought that acts to naturally produce a set of predictable behaviors. All behavior, in the essential sense, is emotionally driven. The way to control someone, and the way we’re always being controlled, is through our emotions.

Self-Observation Through the act of self-observation, we can reflect on any idea we’re given (media, news, gossip, argument, conversation, article, video, etc.), and simply notice how we first willingly “take it in” (allow and passively absorb), and as we begin thinking about it we form it into a reality as an experience of it, that then produces an emotional reaction to our own imagined reality. As we produce an emotional response, we feel a distinct stimulation at different parts of our body and our “state” (how we feel) changes (alignment of mind and body) based on the reality of our thoughts. Because we can imagine them as being “real”, we form a belief in them as a possibility, and that belief as an imagined reality becomes a natural part of our perception. Once we form a belief around it as being real, we can easily and naturally see it as a part of our everyday reality, and we respond to it as if it’s real, producing natural behaviors based on it. This whole process is very easy to realize through constant self-reflection and observation of what you’re thinking and why you’re thinking it. By stepping outside of your immediate awareness of being “in” the experience without realizing you’re the one creating it (first person), and taking on a second person perspective of objectively allowing yourself to do and think as you normally would while simply “watching” your own thoughts from a detached perspective, you can begin realizing how you’re using your mind to create the reality of ideas that you’re being given by others through some form of communication. You can become aware of how your own mind operates in a completely natural way to produce “ideas” as living scenario’s and internal movies of the reality they imply. Once you become aware of how your mind operates subliminally in an automatic fashion, you can begin learning how to operate it in a fully aware and deliberate manner. Once we realize that any idea being given to us through an outside source of some kind becomes the basis for how we produce all of our experiences, which acts to form our beliefs as a basic form of programming or systematically forming our mental paradigm as a “belief system” that naturally produces the reality we’re programmed with, we can begin exercising our conscious mind’s ability to act as the “gate keeper” to our subconscious, and begin analyzing and using reason and discrimination to edit and censor what we allow in to take hold, and what we reject and keep out. Through an intuitive process of self-awareness we can begin using our ability to decide what we invest our consciousness in and what we don’t. We can begin using the creative power of our will to intentionally invest and use only desirable ideas as a means of creating. We can realize when we’re being manipulated and others are imposing their will on us in an attempt to get us to invest in the idea they want us to as a way of controlling what we think, feel, say, and do. Through the awareness of the fact that we’re always the ones creating our own experience of reality, we can begin taking control of our will and imagination, and begin thinking and creating in a deliberate and intentional manner. We can realize in the most profound sense, that truly the only thing to fear, is fear itself, because it’s an illusion of our own making.

        Fear is a “mental weakness” produced through a basic form of ignorance. Ignorance in the sense that it’s always our mind and imagination that’s producing our “experience of reality” and what ideas and meaning we focus on and give our will over to by thinking about them, that actually acts to “produce them”. Only the novice, beginning student, and the feeble minded, don’t realize the true nature of fear.  The minute you realize you’re being made to feel “afraid” of something by how it’s being presented and delivered, you need to step-back, detach from the emotions being used to elicit the fear, and look at it from an objective perspective in order to realize the illusion of it. It’s (an idea) only fearful and scary if you cooperate in making it that way. It requires you to create it in a fearful manner in your own mind as the means of cooperating by lending your will to create it as a co-creation or joint-reality. Fear is often used in the Secret Sciences as a way of not only separating the “neophyte from the adept” , or the ignorant from the wise, the child from the adult, but to restrain the weak minded, keeping them out of danger and to prevent them from tampering with things that are beyond them. Fear is designed intentionally to keep them away from things that they know nothing of, and could therefore hurt themselves through their own misunderstanding and incorrect use of their own imagination. This is because all of the Spiritual Arts and Sacred Sciences, as the name implies, are pursued through mental means and masterful use of will, which “is” the imagination. The higher arts can only be accurately pursued by someone who has mastered their own mind and the ability to use it in a very deliberate and precise manner without being scared and taken in by the magnetic will of others. Mastery is only possible for those who are not prone to emotional reactions, passions, and sensationalism. All operations that are designed to “protect” us from daemons or astral entities are due to our “fear of them”, because they’re actually tuned into and summonsed or produced by our own mind. The idea of daemons and evil, are something we create by accepting the idea of them as real, then creating them in our imagination as actual entities, or interpret ordinary events to be evil, scary, or demonic somehow, and scaring ourselves as a result. This is why those who “believe in them” see and experience them, and those who don’t, fail to. Because it’s all based on a belief in them and using our imagination to create them, which is what makes them real for us. All fear, in its most basic essence, is the outcome of ignorance, because we don’t realize we’re creating our own fear and the reality of what it is we’re afraid of.

Archetypes as Laws and Principles that Provide Tools for Personal Transformation

In order to gain an understanding of how archetypes work in our psychological make-up, we have to start by defining what an archetype is. An archetype is what’s used in the most primary sense to illustrate or represent natural principles and laws. An archetype represents a kind of prototype, universal template, or ideal that we use for creating in every aspect of our life. As multidimensional, multifaceted beings, our personality and psychological make-up is comprised of universal archetypes that we share with all of humanity, represented by the zodiac and the ancient gods of Mythology. An archetype as a principle is represented as an “idea” or “being” that has certain types of attributes, qualities and characteristics, that form its basic personality giving it a natural disposition, temperament, perspective and “type” or kind of behaviors that naturally lend themselves to telling a certain type of story as it’s “identity”.

Our basic psychological make-up as our personality is formed by the twelve universal (everyone has them) archetypes of the zodiac as personality traits in varying degrees and aspects that are composed into a “formula” as our primary “state of consciousness”.  As we go out into the world and begin participating in co-creating reality, this state of consciousness as our personality acts to predetermine and form our “identity” as the roles we naturally cast ourselves in or take on, and the type of story we tell by how we express our character traits and live our life. In order to change the character traits that make up our personality and identity, we have to work by way of principles as archetypes.

The ultimate form of transformation as self-development, doesn’t come by changing individual or select behaviors, habits, or tendencies, though it can be in the ordinary sense, but rather by working with attributes and qualities that form new characteristics. By evolving characteristics that form our personality and have natural behaviors inherent in them as a “way of being”, we naturally produce new experiences that give us a new and different “sense of ourselves”, that simultaneously produces a new kind of reality as the story we naturally begin telling through our newly acquired perceptions and behaviors. “Being” always produces “doing”, and doing results in physical manifestation.

       To work through principles says that the way to change how something or someone functions and performs, and the reality they create through the story they naturally tell as a result, is to work with their character and nature to alter, modify and reformulate its inherent properties and elements. By adjusting and modifying the qualities one expresses through, we change the entire operation. So instead of trying to change one aspect within a whole, natural operation, often without ever identifying what attribute is ultimately causing it, you work instead to adjust the inner nature as their character, and let the changes that ensue from it naturally take place. Then evaluate them to determine if or what other attributes need to be adjusted, until it naturally acts to produce the change you want. All change ultimately comes in a natural and permanent manner by changing the character of the person forming the behaviors that you desire to change. All other methods may solve a specific application or instance, but the behavior and tendency itself will continue to play out in others ways.

What’s referred to in Alchemy as the “chemical marriage”, comes through coupling, combining, and assimilation of its equal and complementary opposite. Transformation takes place by mingling, blending, and combining contradictory opposites to form a new whole. By returning what is fixed and dead to a fluid and growing state. When we assume habitual qualities that make up our character and nature, and fail to grow in the essential sense of our inner self, we become as dead matter, measured only by quantity and proportion. We stagnate and begin living a life of routine and dogma, performing the same rituals day after day in an automatic way, and begin living out of the same mindset telling ourselves the same story day in and day out.

When we stop growing, learning, and becoming something new and different in each moment, we begin the process of withering and dying. All behaviors and habits are merely the expression of established and well-practiced qualities that make up our character. So the way to change a habit, specific behavior, or tendency, isn’t to work directly with it in the practical sense of breaking a pattern to form a new one, but rather by identifying what part of your nature is producing that behavior as a natural expression and working through the law of sympathy and antipathy to modify it. It’s only by changing our inner nature somehow that we change our outer expression as our reality.

Qualities exist as attributes that are polar in nature as complementary opposites that form extremes of each other, with a gradient scale between them as degrees. We seldom ever fall exclusively on one side or the other, but rather somewhere in between, and express in favor of one extreme or the other under different circumstances. Many behavioral tendencies come more as a dynamic and interactive combination of qualities that must be worked with as groups or complementary clusters rather than as singular in nature, although often what is spurned as a quality actually results from a “core or parent” quality, which, when transformed, changes all offspring produced by it systematically.

For example, jealousy and envy, whose opposite is admiration and trust, may be the offspring of self-doubt, lack of confidence, and low self-worth, and until this is addressed and transformed, the jealousy won’t go away. At best it’ll be repressed and subdued or corrected (seemingly) in one situation, while still existing as a tendency and natural perception in any other situation that warrants it, because what’s “causing it” hasn’t been changed. Once self-worth has been transformed into a healthy state of confidence, self-love and admiration, the tendency towards jealousy in all areas dissipates and is no longer apart of personal awareness and feelings. In other words, the person no longer feels that way in situations that used to warrant a deep feeling of jealousy and envy.

To breed confidence in place of being timid and feeling unsure of yourself requires working with believing in yourself, trusting yourself, and honoring your uniqueness. Just trying to correct the behavior itself by telling them (or yourself) to not be timid or afraid, or by making them feel bad somehow for being that way, not only doesn’t transform it, but can in fact compound and exaggerate it, making it even worse. Qualities as our inner nature and personality form an interactive model as a cluster of qualities that have been developed through an active and expressive state to produce our experiences. We form beliefs about and around ourselves and others through the active expression of innate qualities being brought out in us through the dynamics, conditions, and life situations we grew up in, that served to establish our initial personality as traits and characteristics we naturally possess and outwardly express as adults.

       All of these well-developed qualities have their complementary opposites, which also exist within us in a latent state, and can be used in a strategic manner to transform them. We simply have to realize it, form a desire and intention to perfect ourselves, and use our will creatively to transform our character into new habits. We “become” whatever we form a habit of. By intentionally working to develop ourselves by embodying and acting out counteractive qualities, and practicing “being that way”, we change how we feel, how we “sense ourselves”, and how we feel about ourselves. For example, just by changing our posture from a slumped one to an erect one, back straight, head held up high, making eye contact, all characteristics of “confident behavior”, we actually feel more confident. As we feel more confident, we create an experience of ourselves as “being” confident, and we start acting that way more and more, until it becomes a natural part of who we are in the most ordinary sense.

        All qualities have a state-of-mind and physiological characteristics associated with them. By becoming an actor in our own life, so to speak, we can imagine the state-of-mind out of which confidence would be the result, and by employing the behaviors and postures that communicate and demonstrate confidence, and “become” confident as a result. We can actively choose to embody that state and quality of being, and act it out as a means of expressing ourselves in some situation, as the basis for creating an experience of ourselves in that manner. If we feel we don’t know how to be, feel, and act confident, we can find someone that we consider confident and self-assured, study them to see what they’re attitude, frame of mind, physiology (the way they hold themselves, gestures, facial expressions, voice tone and quality, etc.), and how they act, then we can model them by “pretending” to be the same way. Just like when we were kids and we developed ourselves by pretending to be just like our favorite characters. This whole process of self-development is natural to us as children when we’re in the natural state of creating ourselves using our imagination, but we tend to lose it as we become adults. As adults, we’ve established patterns and instead of taking an attitude of “creating new memories”, we begin simply living out of the memories already created in a repetitive fashion, feeling and being the same way over and over, creating the same type of experiences in the present as in the past.

While the subconscious mind, which forms our personality, is habitual in nature, working to create and behave in an automatic fashion based on memory as habits, it’s also passive and receptive in nature, lacking a will of its own, and can be directed by the conscious mind to employ new qualities, behave in new ways according to those qualities, and form new memories that will become new habits as a natural way of being. We don’t need to go through years of therapy in an attempt to try and resolve or understand our story about things and what happened to us, and why we became the way we are. All we have to do is realize as adults we still have the ability to create ourselves in any way we want to by simply detaching from the past and our story about it, deciding what aspects of ourselves we want to grow and transform into something better and greater, set the intention to do so, then begin the work of practicing in a disciplined manner to become it.

       We can bring what’s in a fixed and established state back into a fluid and growing state. We can realize who we’ve become up to this point, and who we want to be instead, or in moving forward to continue the process of actively developing ourselves. We see ourselves and our life as a “work in progress” of continuous and never-ending growth. Not as “being” a certain way, but as a continuous state of “becoming”. We can decide what story we want to tell by how we live our life, and what “kind” of person we have to become in order to do that. We can move outside of the mindset that says we’re always determined by other people, by how they act and treat us, or by what situations we found ourselves in or acted unknowingly to create, and begin taking an attitude instead of being responsible for our own development and who we become by way of our own willful decisions and actions. We can disconnect from all the memories and illusions of the past, be present in the moment, and become aware of ourselves in terms of how and who we’re being, and “in that awareness”, actively choose how we’re going to be, regardless of others and what’s happening around us.

We can detach from our emotional connection to others that keep us constantly affected by and responding to them, reside apart from them as our own person, and choose how we’re going to interact accordingly. We’re only affected by people because as children in our “formative years”, only our subconscious was fully developed and dominantly active and we were constantly taking in the suggestions and attitudes of others and using them to shape ourselves in relation with them. This tendency becomes established as a way of self-development, so that even when the self-conscious aspect of the mind develops to the point of being active and dominate as our awareness, which has the ability to judge and decide what to let in or keep out, we still act to develop in an unconscious manner. Once we develop a conscious mind, which separates us from our parents and others, and gives us the ability to think for ourselves, discriminate and reason, and act based on choice and will to give suggestions to our own subconscious mind as a way of self-development instead of other-development, we have the ability to become self-determined.

The problem is, by the time we’ve become adults it’s become a habit as an automatic process of stimulus – response, action – reaction, and we don’t realize that we now have a will and can act independent of others in determining our own psychological makeup. We can finally realize that who others are, how they’re being towards us, and what they think of us has nothing to do with us, unless we let it by engaging through a reactive like-response. As soon as we realize this, break the unconscious emotional connection, and see ourselves as a part from others, where their behavior and attitude no longer produces a reaction in us, we step into our true power to decide in every moment who and how we’re going to be, then acting it out as an experience of ourselves.

Summary:

All transformation comes as an “inside job”. It comes through transforming the qualities that make up our character that naturally produce all of our perceptions and behaviors as a natural way of being that serve to tell a story of some kind. We don’t transform by addressing specific behaviors, but rather by working with the personality traits and character that act to naturally produce them as a tendency. By changing our “core” or kernel, we change how it expresses outwardly and what it acts to create through behaviors and deeds of some sort. Archetypes are tools for transformation because they provide us with a dynamic system of what qualities and personality traits produce what type of behaviors that naturally perform a stylized operation as a thematic story-line.

All qualities exist in polarity, with a wide range of degrees and variances in between, and all qualities can be modified by employing their opposite and contradictory aspect. All vibration as a pattern is altered by coupling with a similar, yet variable pattern of the same nature, where different degrees of the same quality are being expressed, that allows it to acquire and take on new attributes. We train and condition ourselves to new ways of being by modeling the qualities necessary until they become a natural part of us. Whatever we pretend to be, we become. Pretending and playacting is the key to personal transformation and developing your character in a natural and deliberate way.

Alchemy and the Process of Initiation – Transformation and Growth through Challenges and Ordeals

The ancient art known as “Alchemy” dealt with the idea of soul purification and self-creation through masterful use of the will. It works through Universal Laws that govern all of the material world as a primary form of mind-over-matter, or the mind’s ability to willfully direct the behaviors of the body (subconscious) and determine what type of energies as states of consciousness we take on, become one with, and bring into expression as a way of creating ourselves by way of them. It works through the same laws that govern the chemistry of the body, where, when two or more substances are combined, they form a chemical reaction as biological processes of transformation. All change and transmutation comes from new combinations of some kind that form new relationships as a unique variable that alters it from its original state.

The alchemical process acts first to “purify” the substance (soul) to be transformed through various forms of changing the solution by filtering and separation, that identify and remove all impurities acquired through previous combining and amalgamations, returning it to its virgin state. This process takes repeated steps of breaking down existing conditions and established qualities, refining them through a process of distillation, and removing all corrupt aspects as weaknesses, vices, and vulnerabilities. Once returned to its original state, the true aspects of its character can then fully express and be developed into strengths as the means of true self-creation that comes from self-awareness, self-knowledge, and intentional actions and deeds. We can then act “on ourselves” to develop ourselves in very distinct ways by choosing what qualities we want to intentionally embody, become one with, and bring into expression as a way of apprehending those qualities and developing our character to include them.

The Law of the Tetragrammaton or Tetrad (4), demonstrates this process and method of “becoming” through the Dyad  (Vesica Pisces) as the blending together of two energy fields, joined at the center, where outside energies serve to stimulate and awaken those same energies in us, and together in the overlapping area, form an interference pattern as the reconfiguration of that pattern in both to form a new variation. This new variation of the same quality and idea, births the Triad as its offspring as the inner or imagined idea that provides the subconscious pattern for producing its outer equivalent as a projection or reflection, birthing its correspondence as an outer expression or experience of reality as the Tetrad. This same principle is demonstrated in the most primary law of all, the Law of Vibration, which states that whenever we vibrate in harmony with something else, we act to magnetically draw it into us through sympathetic induction, blending with it, and both of our complementary yet variable vibrations begin vibrating in-sync, forming coherence as a new vibratory rate that together forms a new pattern. This law forms the very foundation as a guided process for not only realizing “how” we’re being shaped all the time by whatever we associate and interact with energetically, but for how to engage in and use that same process intentionally as a means of developing ourselves.

       The same process of returning a solid substance to a fluid state, purifying it by breaking down and dissolving all impurities and corruption, then reforming it through new combinations, occurs naturally in life anytime we’re faced with challenges, ordeals, major life crisis, and extreme forms of hardship and loss, where we’re forced to reevaluate our life and values, and embrace our identity with a sense of awareness. It’s easy to see that the only time we change or grow in some way, is when we have to in order to overcome or negotiate a new situation that presents a problem or unfamiliar territory. It’s only when we’re taken out of our comfort zone, our ordinary conditions, circumstances, and situations that we’ve become accustomed to, and thrown into brand new, unexpected situations that we’re forced to respond and act in a deliberate way. Where we go through the process in our mind of not knowing what to do, no previous experience or memory to draw off of or repeat, and we go through a decision process that requires us to willfully act it out, usually going against our own natural and habitual tendencies. Only in these moments are we truly self-creating in a fully aware manner. We’re initiating and producing our own reality that brings us into a new feeling and sense of ourselves. We embody qualities that we’ve never really expressed or developed before, and they transform us as a result. While in these moments, we’re back into a position, often for the first time as an adult, of having to make conscious decisions in every instance of what we’re going to do, how we’re going to be, and what we’re going to act intentionally to create.

The process of initiation in the ancient mysteries, prepared the initiate by putting them in extremely challenging situations that were designed to invoke extreme fear and a deep sense of insecurity, which revealed their will to either give up and give in, or to persevere and push through difficulties, developing great mental fortitude through the process. The object was to not only become fearless, but to also be able to remain calm, highly focused, clear minded, and confident in extreme situations of all kinds. This came through the ability to not allow the energy challenging you to enter into your sphere of consciousness and alter your state of mind to match and be “like it”. This is what you might call a form of reverse engineering of the initial process of alteration through “combining and coupling” represented by the Dyad. In this process you deflect the energy, keeping it outside of you, refrain from reacting to it in any manner while staying centered and grounded internally, and in doing so, you neutralize the energy and act instead to influence and direct it through your mental projections and actions.

All of life evolves out of various combinations as the relationships of complementary opposites that act on each other to transform each other to be more alike. Every person or being that we meet or interact with, is acting naturally just through the nature of the interaction to make us like them, and we act to make them like us. This is what all relationships are, a natural method of transformation through adaptation and modification that (re)forms a new whole as a variation. This process is always going on between us and everything around us all the time at the subconscious, unaware level of the mind. We are constantly absorbing, integrating, assimilating, and becoming “like” the energy around us as a basic form of evolution that keeps us in the same state and condition as the environment we exist, function as a part of, and have to survive in. Once we fully understand this law and fact, we have the tools necessary to work by way of that same law to consciously direct and influence the operation.

       All energy is a form of consciousness that exists as “qualities” and feelings that naturally produce certain types of thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. The spiritual-energetic world exists in a parallel dimension to the physical as a hierarchical structure. Whatever exists on a “lower plane” is fully contained within the higher plane as its foundation. The higher plane, which contains the entire lower plane, is what acts to govern and sustain that plane. The invisible plane of energy, which is consciousness, is what shapes matter as essence into form through imagined thoughts. An idea introduced into the mind as a frequency or feeling, stimulates and initiates a thought process that forms it into an image of some kind as a reality in the mind’s eye (3rd eye), that’s further developed and evolved through a narration as internal dialogue. The entire physical, manifest world is produced and animated by consciousness as thought, intention, and imagination. And it’s through this same process, by working with the laws of the higher plane governing the lower plane that we direct and work with the energies of the lower plane.

Once we return to a virgin state through the process of being broke down through constant challenges and crisis, where all illusions that prevented us from seeing ourselves and life as it really is dissolve, revealing only what’s real and eternal, unchangeable, we’re in the position to not only take over control of our own development, but can develop the necessary capacities of the mind that prevent us from being influenced, altered, and corrupted by others. All energy as states that produce emotional realities can be directed and brought into a submissive state by the will. We can control and regulate all energy within our own mental sphere (immediate surroundings) by exercising our will to direct it. This is not the same thing as “imposing our will on others” in an attempt to control and influence them to think, feel, and behave in a certain way, but rather to exercise full dominion over ourselves and our own mind and soul. Alchemy doesn’t concern itself with the idea or need to somehow change others, but only with the mastery necessary to become fully self-determined and self-controlled. The best way we have of influencing others is by controlling our own state and behaviors in how we interact with them, which influences them to “match us”.

Once we realize that our mind exists as a spherical field of energy that not only permeates and surrounds our body, encapsulating it, but also extends out into the environment around us quite some distance, and is always mingling with and taking on the energy of everything else, and that we can actually regulate our energy field by use of our will and imagination to determine what we allow in to become a part of us, and what we keep out or deflect, so it doesn’t affect or alter us. If we learn how to tune into the energy in any situation and how it interacts with us to transform us through resonance, we can learn how to “sense it” by feeling it while imagining its quality, motives, and behavior, while keeping it “outside of us”. We can then realize that people who really project willfully through some form of intensity, and those who live out of and are always expressing and projecting strong emotions of some sort, can only “enter us”, infect us, and become a part of our mind, if we let them.

       Energetic interactions take place naturally at the subconscious level, where, even though we realize how strongly we’re affected by them, we don’t realize what’s actually going on in the objective sense. We don’t realize that by becoming aware of what operates at the unconscious level, we can work with it consciously (with awareness). We can imagine an invisible barrier around us as the edges of our mental sphere where ideas and emotions as illusions are allowed to reflect and “spread out”, where we can see them like “looking through a transparent image” so we can “read them accurately” while preventing them from entering our mind and altering our state accordingly. By practicing this, we can remain calm, centered, and unaffected while in the midst of extremes and intensity of any kind. By remaining neutral in the presence of projected emotions we act to neutralize and diffuse them. But most importantly, we exercise the ability to regulate our own mind and body. This is a key ability of vital importance in terms of intentional self-creation.

        In this same manner we can consciously choose energy that we do want to blend with and become one with as a means of intentionally acquiring the same qualities. While we tend to use terms like “acquire”, “apprehend”, or” get”, to describe the energy and consciousness we embody as a means of developing qualities in ourselves, the fact is we don’t ever “get energy” as qualities “from” something else outside of us, but they act instead, through resonance, to “awaken” and bring into an active state those same qualities “in” us. We then develop them through repetitive expression to become a prominent part of our character. Anything that we consistently develop through expression and interaction of some sort becomes a habit as second nature, which means we begin doing it naturally in an automatic manner without direct awareness or having to think about it.

        This same process of union as combining and coupling with someone or something else as the natural means of transforming and growing, is represented in what’s called the “chemical marriage” of Alchemy, as the relationship between the active and passive forces of the same mind and soul, and the conscious minds ability to direct, guide, and create by way of the subconscious mind as a unified and harmonious act. It’s learning how to make an adjustment through an understanding of sympathy and antipathy, attraction and repulsion, magnetizing and projecting. By learning how to use our own personal will to seed and work to create through our subconscious, we create both ourselves and our reality in an intentional and purposeful manner.

Likewise, the burning away of impurities as character flaws, unconscious complexes and tendencies, incorrect evaluations and calculations, or bad habits we developed as unconscious conditioning, we can resolve our bad (self-destructive) karma and create a more positive form of karma. Redemption comes by first bringing what’s operating in our life unconsciously into conscious awareness where we can not only see what we’re doing and why, but we can also begin working with it consciously to resolve it. All manifestations produced by actions can be cancelled out and brought back into a balanced state through the equilibrium of opposites. It’s only by realizing and owning our own part in things that we see clearly what we’re doing in any situation that acting to co-create it, whether passively or actively, that we can willfully change our own perceptions and behaviors. It’s by counteracting an idea that we transform it by reformulating it, bringing what’s out of balance (emphasized) and being done unconsciously back into balance through awareness that brings realization. The realization alone is what acts to dissolve and transform the illusion. To redeem ourselves from an attitude and action, is to form and embody the opposite attitude and action, and repeat it consistently until it becomes a habit that we do naturally. We can only be changed by what becomes habit as an essential part of our nature (through reprogramming our subconscious).

Those of us who came into this life with many difficulties, challenges, and ordeals to overcome, are naturally walked through a process of initiation as soul purification, often without realizing it. Others intentionally choose a hard life because there’s a desire in them to meet and overcome difficulties. Still others refuse to compromise their dignity in a world that teaches conformity at the cost of morality, and in doing so, welcome the consequences of integrity. All growth and development, in the sense of being the soul’s only true goal and purpose in life, is considered an act of love from a higher, spiritual perspective. It’s only when we’re challenged and overwhelmed and we reign as victor, that we’re exalted. The greater our fall, the more exalted our rising. It’s only when we push through tremendous odds, and when faced with devastation and wrought with unimaginable grief, in those darkest moments when we’re forced to reach down into our unknown depths of our self to find our true source of light and power, that we ascend to the higher rungs by virtue of our own volition.

Neutralizing Demonic Forces that render us Unconscious – Passions, Emotions, and Creating while in an Unconscious State

In order to understand how to work with negative forces in our life, we have to move away from the Hollywood depiction of what demons and demonic forces are, and look at them more in the light of day as we actually experience them in our day-to-day life. The entire material world is a part of the Astral Plane which acts as a magnetic fluid and medium for what we experience as emotions, passions, and ideas combined with a strong emotional component that make them seem very compelling and often hard to resist. Passion comes as a strong and barely controllable emotion as a form of reaction or interaction that stems from a connection or desire for something and ultimately forms the basis for all of our self-induced suffering. Sexual desire and lust can form a kind of fanaticism and mania by arousing an intense emotion. Emotions are the language and motivating force of the material plane and govern our subconscious mind as our instinctual nature. We cultivate emotional states through our living conditions, circumstances and situations, moods, and relationships with others.

The lower material plane exists within what we call the Astral Plane, which as the name implies can also be thought of as the “atmosphere” of the Earth, which is comprised of the Elements of fire (light and heat), and water (primordial substance), that together produce air, which is illuminated and fortified by starlight (our sun). Within the invisible atmosphere all around us live elementals, which are a primal form of consciousness as “singular qualities” that form what we call the instinctual plane and the Collective Unconscious. They exist as what we could think of as “memory” that have personality traits and distinct behaviors or operations associated with them. As humans, we tend to experience them as emotions that produce an imagined reality that’s a form of illusion or fantasy. If you pay close attention you’ll realize emotions are readily transmitted through the atmosphere. We sense them as the “energy” in a place or situation, and act to “receive” them from others who are outwardly expressing and projecting them, and when we “take on” an emotion, it alters our state of mind, has a certain type of reality inherent in it that starts playing out in our mind as a memory of some form, and causes us to act in a certain way.

What we traditionally call “demons” or demonic forces which are typically represented as bad or evil forces, and while they can take on that quality when inhabiting a person and taking control of their will and imagination, in the most general sense they’re neither good nor bad, but neutral forces that give animals their personality and behaviors, and only become “evil” when used inappropriately as the means to an end that could be considered evil, or harmful and very destructive. It’s usually the intention, will or tendencies of the person they’re inhabiting and expressing through that make them evil. Otherwise they’re simply qualities that can be employed to develop certain powers and qualities in us that help us to perform certain feats in a more proficient and expressive way. They come to us as instinctual forces that operate in an unconscious way to produce automatic, animal-like behaviors. The name daemon originated as meaning any of the lower entities that were of a partially terrestrial nature, including our Higher Self, until the name was incorrectly interpreted and corrupted to mean only evil or bad. Anyone who can see the impressions inherent in the Astral field all around us knows that it’s filled with images of what are often beautiful daemons vividly structured in varying degrees of intense prismatic colors, that are often very benevolent and pure in nature.

All energy of both the subtle and gross realms exist in polarity as complementary opposites that serve to stimulate each other and lay out the stage necessary to act out dramas. In order to act out a scenario, you have to have multiple players cast in different roles. We can only “know” ourselves “as” something through contrast and relation with its opposite. We can only know ourselves as “good” in comparison and opposition to “bad”. We can only know and experience ourselves as courageous and brave in comparison to scared and cowardice. We have to create and be in the situation that requires us to “decide” who and how we’re going to be as the drama necessary to “act it out” as an experience of our self and reality, by employing and bringing into expression the qualities necessary. We don’t ever “take in” energy as entities from outside of us, because they’re already a part of us (animal constitution), they act merely to awaken and bring forth in us those same qualities through resonance.

When we’re in a situation where they’re actively expressing and we’re stimulated by them and they become active “in us”, through awareness we can choose to employ and utilize them to develop ourselves. This forms the basis for “Journeying to the Underworld” in Shamanic medicine, which always works with the “whole person” by working with the astral-etheric body  of the psyche animal subconscious to heal the physical body by empowering the person with the “animal power” the person needs and is deficient in. These animal powers as “instinctual memory” are often referred to as demons or nature spirits, with the idea of a Demon being similar in the lower, animal plane to that of an Archetype in the Higher, Divine Planes. By acquiring the quality of the demon or animal power, we can develop that same quality in us as a part of our character, and correct a psychological and emotional imbalance that alters the physical malady associated with it.

They can also come as a psychological state that rises spontaneously in an automatic and unknown fashion, rather than through a deliberate conscious effort of some sort, which are accompanied by or produce a physiological change as a feeling (love, joy, anger, hate, fear, etc.). We’re constantly taking on and being internally stimulated by the energy all around us, just like we breathe air, not only with our lungs but with our whole body – cellular – and drink and eat food. We transform through resonance and constant stimulation of certain forces within us through an unconscious interaction simply by being in near proximity of them as a natural form of evolution. These energies exist all around us as invisible forces that become a part of our psyche and energetic make-up, both in an aware and unaware manner, as well as by intentionally taking them on to develop those same qualities and abilities within us.

We’re constantly transforming and evolving based on what type of qualities of consciousness we interact with. Out of emotion comes a reality as an imagined experience that forms the “lens we look through” to interpret and describe the situation that gave rise to it. Our “reaction to it” is what creates in the situation as a way of influencing its course and what transpires as a chain-reaction to our reaction. Every action sets into motion and infinite series of like reactions that are of the same nature, kind, and type. There’s always an equilibrating process going between our inner self and outer environment as the most basic form of evolution that’s constantly making the adjustments necessary to keep us of the same energy, nature and consciousness as the environment we exist, function, and survive in. This takes places through the natural process of resonance, sympathetic induction, and coherence. So in this sense, demonic forces can be thought of as vibratory frequencies that form patterns as physical forms of some sort that have distinct qualities and characteristics that simultaneously produce natural behaviors.

Other forms of what we call demons (Qliphoth) are what we can call “empty shells” or “harlots”, which are a form of etheric remnant left behind from a dead person who was considered evil. The etheric body, which is the shell or holographic model of the physical body, lingers in the Astral plane for quite some time after death of the body before gradually disintegrating and dissolving. It dies along with the body, but because it’s subtle in nature, takes longer to actually deteriorate. These are the destructive forces always at work in the universe and are formed and developed by the willful actions of the person who created their persona out of them. These etheric remnants remain for a time within the plane they belong to, unable to ascend, and are available to haunt or inhabit other people who either live near them or that are of a similar nature and act to attract them. This order of demons inhabits the fifth world as our conception of hell, and can’t enter higher worlds, and so when we play host to them, we condemn ourselves to the lower regions of death and destruction.

Orders of demons are assigned to each level of our multidimensional reality, just like orders of angels are. All energies in both higher and lower regions exist as dual, polar forces that together form a kind of sliding sale of degrees of the type of consciousness they represent. The angels are considered the higher, creative and benevolent principle, and the complementary demons its opposite, being a perversion (reverse) of its essential qualities. They can also come as the excess, extreme, or exaggeration of the positive quality, which makes them destructive in nature. They can come through an imbalance brought about through repetitive emanations or by employing them consistently over an extended period of time. These energies are of the Astral-etheric field, and inhabit the Astral body (subconscious) of man (animal). They’re the remains of an earlier cycle of creation, void of a soul and will of their own, and can only continue to live and create by inhabiting a person (soul) and commanding their will. This is commonly referred to as “possession” or “obsession”, and the person acting as a host for these forces can literally become another person and take on a whole new personality and behaviors.

       Demons of various sorts are also considered the “tempters” and “testers” of mankind, challenging and often corrupting their morality by appealing to their animal passions. The Angel of Death, often to refer to as Satan, is known as the “accuser and deceiver”, preying on the feeble minded and weak willed, as a means of sorting out the weak, revealing their true nature as “lower beings”. This produces what we could call the “deciding point” between who ascends to a higher domain, or to a lower one. The more animal-like we are, selfish and ruled by our passions, the more destructive we are and we cast ourselves into an infinite existence in the lower worlds of animal instincts and unconsciousness.

Evil, which is a destructive force, can’t exist on the higher realms, and so those who act as a host for demonic forces can’t pass through the “Gates of Heaven”, or the tunnel of light, and move into an existence of higher, loving, creative consciousness. We only move between planes, which exist as levels and ranges of vibration, by cultivating our nature to vibrate at a similar enough rate within the lower planes of passions, emotions, and animal instincts, to form “resonance” with the higher plane, and be “drawn up” into it. All single planes have multiple planes within them as higher and lower regions, and when moving into a higher plane we enter at the lowest region, and begin the process of transforming and evolving ourselves through use of our higher, creative capacities of choice and free will to higher, more benevolent, and selfless ways of being.

All “energetic beings” of the material plane can be influenced and directed through awareness and conscious use of will. Emotional states, passions and desires, lust, sexual attraction, and anything that has a strong magnetic feel to it that normally overtakes you in a completely natural and unconscious way (no thought or realization), can be recognized for what they are and neutralized by not reacting to them, or acting based on them. However these forces are very magnetic and gripping and may be quite difficult to resist based on their intensity, and the level of consciousness and will you’ve employed the up to this point to create your experiences and yourself by way of those experiences. When we live out of our emotions and allow our emotions to run us, we exist within and create out of an unconscious state. When experiencing strong emotions, they form illusions in our mind that we perceive as real, and we replace the present reality with a memory of the past, and create more of the past in the present.

The unconscious mind of the Astral-animal plane doesn’t have the ability to create through self-aware, deliberate acts, and merely creates in an automatic fashion out of memory of some sort. All memory is directly associated to the emotional state of the memory, and the emotions are what acts as the “activating mechanism” of memory. All natural behavior is emotionally driven, and is formed out of memory of some sort. Memory provides the automatic program or pattern for the behavioral dynamic that ensues from it. Anytime we experience an emotional charge, it renders us unconscious and begins running us, using our will and imagination to play out a memory as an illusion of some sort that we act on and participate in creating as an actual reality. Likewise, anytime we dwell in memories, we create the emotional state of those memories, and behave and create the same way in the present as we did in the past. No choice is involved because we don’t even realize that’s what we’re doing and what’s actually happening. This is what unconscious means – natural and automatic – no thought or effort is required. It comes “over us” as a state and we act as the host for it to create through and out of.

By forming a new awareness around emotions and passions, realizing what’s actually happening and the nature of the energetic world, we can reside outside of them, prevent them from entering our mind and body and taking hold, and we can remain aware and consciously decided whether we want to engage or not, and if so, how we want to engage, or we can say no altogether and refuse to cooperate. When we’re feeling passionate (both good and bad) about something, we can reflect on it and see it as magnetic forces at work in us, play it out in our mind to determine what it will create, whether good and beneficial, or bad and harmful, and we can choose whether or not to continue in cooperatively participating in it or not. The true meaning of resistance isn’t struggling and suffering by abstaining from something that’s ripping at you, it’s learning how to look at it from a different perspective and in a new light, where you see what it actually is, and in doing so, it’s no longer desirable or compelling. It’s about staying conscious in situations you normally go unconscious in through some form of reactive, impulsive, or compelling force that operates you in an automatic fashion, and controls your mind and will. Once we no longer see something as desirable, we have no trouble resisting it. Once we become aware of how our emotional states are created and how they affect us and our ability to see accurately, we can control them and learn how to utilize them in a positive way to create what we truly desire in terms of creating our reality, experiences of that reality, and ourselves by of those experiences. We can only use and consciously control what’s NOT controlling and unconsciously using us.

All demons or entities of the Astral Plane of the Collective Unconscious can be controlled and directed by the will. If we’re aware of the negative energies that are active within us, and we can identify them based on how they make us feel, what we think about when feeling that way, and what behaviors it makes us prone to, we can tell it to leave, and it has to. It can’t refuse, because it doesn’t have a will of its own. They only inhabit unconscious beings that lack awareness of what’s really going on. Often we actually love the reality and behaviors of our demons, and have built our identity around them, and so we don’t really want to give them up. In this case we literally “sell our soul” to the devil (animal nature) and condemn ourselves to an eternity within the lower planes, where we render ourselves an unconscious mortal animal instead of a divine immortal ruler of the lower planes.

Emotions and passions, in the sense that we’re talking about them here, don’t exist on the higher planes. On higher planes intuition, thought, and will are the creative forces. Only the higher, human soul acts to control its own will and imagination. We have full control over ourselves and we’re fully responsible for what we create. Divine forces reside in a reverent state, and create in a way that’s beneficial and life-promoting to everyone and everything involved. It respects and honors life in all its forms. Death and destruction are only attributes of the lower, material planes where immortal gods become mortal animals. By learning how to take control of our animal nature and instincts and passions, we can use it in a deliberate and intentional manner to create in benevolent and selfless ways that will promote life in all its forms and benefit everyone involved in the highest way possible.
