Acquiring Higher Knowledge: Condition, State, and Quality of Consciousness – Drawing Down Energy into our Mental Sphere

We now know that the consciousness associated with the brain that serves to operate it isn’t produced by the physical organ itself, but the brain (all material bodies) merely act as a “receiver” and transducer for consciousness which exists in its potential form in the atmosphere around us, also known as the ether, Astral Plane, Akashic Field, Quantum Plenum, and the Unified Field of intelligence. We actually act to “absorb” thoughts and ideas from the universal mind of the collective unconscious, rather than actually being the one “producing them”, as many believe. We also act to absorb the thought-forms of others in a parallel manner, which also populate the astral plane around us as the instinctual field of the subconscious mind that are of the same nature as we are through a subliminal form of telepathy.

The brain, heart, and body itself only contains and possesses the consciousness it serves as a vehicle for by first absorbing it through various forms of suggestion and intuition that it then develops into a unique version of reality by continuing to think about it while picturing it in the mind’s eye, forming it into an imaginary reality as the basis for a personal creation. What we refer to as the “body’ consciousness” operates out of memory and it’s only creative capacity is by way of using memory as a thematic blueprint or template for creating material forms of the same nature. It lacks originality and individuality and is developed through conditioning as a form of training that establishes the personality as a mental paradigm or mental sphere of consciousness as a vibratory frequency, that it continues creating out of in a natural and repetitive manner.

State of Mind

In order to acquire, absorb, or “call” energetic entities as ideas into our sphere of consciousness, we have to create the conditions in which that consciousness naturally exists. We have to create the conditions as a vibratory state that’s equivalent to it, which is what allows it to be drawn into our mental sphere through resonance and sympathetic induction. If we don’t exist as the same state of mind and level or quality of consciousness, we don’t resonate with it and we can’t become a vehicle or medium for it to manifest within us as our very own thoughts and feelings. This is true not only for the energies as qualities of consciousness (memories) that naturally inhabit the material plane that we experience as emotional states that appeal to us and bring out in us complementary traits and characteristics, but also in regards to higher planes which are predominately archetypal in nature and provide us with distinct patterns for embodying as a way of “becoming” like them.

In the spiritual, invisible, energetic realm of subtle energy, the primary principles that are always operating is the Law of Mentalism, Law of Correspondences, and the Law of Vibration, all of which go hand in hand as extensions of each other and provide the means of manifesting within the material plane through the proper energy and moving energies necessary to manifest as qualities between parallel planes that together form a cohesive and coherent reality. As a soul within a material body, we can only act to acquire or draw in and absorb energy that’s of the same or similar vibration as we are. In order to draw in a select and desired energy as a quality that we don’t already possess in its active state, we have to align ourselves with and create the mental, emotional, and physical conditions that it naturally exists in or that are of the conditions of that dimension, and thereby “resonate with it”.

The energies of the upper and lower planes, commonly referred to as nature spirits, angels, demons, jeni, and so on, which can also be thought of as the Elements and natural forces that have creative potential and are “singular in nature” and perform distinct operations inherent in that quality faithfully without distortion. Humans are composite beings that are multidimensional in nature and possess and actively employ multiple qualities and characteristics of all planes in which it’s a part. We all have the ability to intentionally develop ourselves by choosing what qualities we align ourselves with and actively employ as the means of being able to perform the operations and behaviors that naturally ensue from that quality. Whatever and however we’re “being” as a quality of consciousness or state of mind, determines what we’re doing and how we’re acting. All actions as an expression of consciousness create realities on the material plane.

Archetypes and the Gods of Creation

The energies of a still higher plane, the Akashic field of universal memory, entities exist that are of a complex nature just as we are. These entities are archetypes, which have historically been referred to as the “gods”. An archetype exists as a “whole idea” that involves multiple qualities as a formula or dynamic that has a certain type of personality and character traits, an identity as a specific type of person prone to play a certain type of role and be ideal for acting out a certain type of story as a form of theme. Archetypes from these higher planes form the basis for all human development, and we are not only born into this world as a dynamic formula of multiple archetypes (zodiac birth chart), but we “are” an archetype ourselves. We embody and live out of a dominant archetype as a unique variation formulated by our souls ability to access, select, and draw in (embody) the archetypes of its choice and actively expressing those qualities as the means of creating ourselves by developing those same qualities to various degrees as a natural part of our personality and identity.

The gods of antiquity was a mythology that provided us with a kind of menu as to what was possible and available for practical use based on our nature and desire for “how we want to be”. We all resonate and feel an affinity for certain types of characters and heavily relate to certain types of stories that naturally result from the expression of certain ways of being. The gods of mythology represent archetypes as a way of being that provide us with a model that we can choose with precision and actively employ as a means of intentionally developing ourselves to be of a similar nature. We can only really embody and know how to bring a way of being into expression by imitating what’s being modeled and demonstrated for us. Archetypes are characters that are whole in nature as complex dynamic beings that provide us with a template to practice out of. They possess a certain combination of qualities in varying degrees that make up their character. By stepping into and practicing “being like” an archetype, we activate and bring out those same qualities in ourselves. Naturally by imitating we don’t become just like them, but we create a unique version of the same idea, or incorporate new qualities into our existing character that expand our range of expression.

If we have a desire to be more courageous and less prone to fear, for example, we choose and embody an archetype or god that is the full expression of fearless courage. We can study them, get a feel for their personality, and how they feel, think, and perceive things, what perspective they take, how they hold and conduct themselves, and just through imitating and being like them in body, posture, and behavior, we tap into and access the same consciousness and way of perceiving ourselves. Physiology forms a direct correspondence with state of mind, which corresponds with a distinct way of feeling and thinking. Thought, feeling, emotion, and action or behavior is “always” aligned with each other. So just be employing the same behaviors we adjust our state of mind to match it, creating a new experience of ourselves, and we begin perceiving in new ways. We gain a new sense of ourselves through our behaviors and ways of conducting ourselves that we then become associated and identified with, and through repetitive practice, it becomes a natural way of being. We’re not meant to “worship” the gods of mythology (or religion) as many have been led to believe, but rather use them as tools for self-development.

Becoming One with our Higher Self

In a similar manner we can also connect to our Higher Self, which is what most are actually referring to when they think of God (as a person or entity), which exists on a higher plane and acts to guide and direct us through an internal voice while also orchestrating the events of our life based on karma and what we “ask for” through our thoughts and intention, and is also a constant companion to us. Our Higher Self is also commonly referred to as our Holy Guardian Angel, and is the part of us that remains fully within a higher plane and never manifests (blends with material substance) in the lower plane, and remains unaffected by magnetic forces (emotions) of the lower regions of the Astral Plane. It exists in a natural and unbiased state and doesn’t respond or even necessarily seem to acknowledge our emotional states, passions, and instinctual urges, and guides us instead through pure reasoning and absolute clarity that’s always taking into account the big picture of which we are commonly unaware of.

By forming a connection with our Higher Self, through deep feelings of reverence, trust, and devotion, and committing whole-heartedly and sincerely to our souls development (which is its only concern), and we invite (ask) our Higher Self to come into us and be the consciousness we “look through” as the means of acquiring a more accurate and objective perspective and perception, we act to “pull down” the energy by consciously embodying it. We blend with it and become one in awareness. We can only do this consistently by creating ourselves (body and mind) to be of an equivalent nature to our Higher Self. This means we have to purify ourselves of toxic emotions and the illusions born out of them, and not be subject to emotional states and the emotional projections of others. We have to cleanse ourselves of our emotions, passions for material pleasure, and be able to willfully resist compulsive urges (instinctual behaviors). As long as we exist as the equivalent of the lower, unconscious plane of animal instinct, driven by emotions, reactive behaviors, and passions, we can’t act as the vessel for higher energies, because these things don’t exist on higher planes (only lower planes of an unconscious nature), and so the conditions don’t correspond and aren’t appropriate. The higher mind is willful in nature and isn’t affected or “controlled” by the emotions intended to produce automatic behaviors.

So anytime we’re looking to acquire new qualities and ways of being, we have to recognize the natural conditions as the atmosphere that quality, entity, or archetype naturally exists in, and create the same conditions in our mental sphere through gaining rapport with it. By becoming like it as a state of mind. We have to “become” through an act of awareness, choice, and will, of the same nature. We have to vibrate at a similar rate in order to be able to draw it in or absorb it by resonating with it. Once we absorb it, embody and become one with it, it activates those same qualities within us and we’re able to express through them. Once forces become active within us and we’re able to express ourselves through them by becoming them, we create experiences as them, sense our self through those experiences, associate and identify with our own experiences, absorb them as memory, and through an accumulative process of consistent practice, they become a natural part of us. They become fully integrated into our mental sphere and built into our muscle. We begin employing them automatically as a natural part of our being. Once this is accomplished, we no longer need the entity or archetype, and we can release it back into the sphere from which it came.

       This is an important step many fail to recognize and do intentionally. The only purpose of an entity or quality that performs a certain function in a specific way is to stimulate, awaken, make active, and bring out in us that same quality, characteristic, and behavior or activity. It’s not meant to take up permanent residence within us where it can begin taking on a life of its own as a form of alter-ego. Once the desired result is achieved and obtained as a permanent part of our character, just as we consciously invoked and embody it, we have to thank it sincerely for the service it provided, then instruct it to leave by ushering it out of our body and back into the atmosphere and universe where it can continue to be of service to others.

This rule applies to every aspect except our Higher Self of course, which always exists as a fundamental part of us and our connection with it is eternal and nourishing in nature. It doesn’t offer qualities and archetypal personalities for us to embody and acquire, but rather exists as a neutral state of being that always acts to inform, advise through awareness, and instruct us without ever making decisions for us or imposing its will on us in a way that overrides our own ability to make decisions for ourselves.  All self-creation is our full responsibility and comes by way of what we choose and ask for and what we willfully bring about through our actions.

       The easiest and most basic way to tell the difference between true “guiding forces” of a higher nature (some call spirit guides, angels, teachers, etc.) and those of a lower nature (emotions, passions, urges, impulses, etc.) is that Divine forces NEVER violate choice and free will, tell you what to do, or make decisions for you. They only act to educate, inform through increased awareness, and bring insights and realizations that reveal new choices and possibilities, increasing and expanding your ability to choose. Lower forces can only express by taking control of or commanding your will through emotional states and passions of various sorts that when allowed to take hold, can easily run your thoughts and make decisions for you as impulses, desires, passions, emotional reactions, and physical urges.

All forces, whether celestial or terrestrial, only have the ability to “influence you” and can’t actually make decisions for you. They have no will of their own, which is what’s required in order to step outside of instinct or a singular nature that’s a part of a collective unconscious, and make new decisions that require original thought that produces new behaviors and ways of being. Only humans have this ability within the creative realms. This is our “God given ability to create” that makes us capable of governing all of the natural forces that partake in the material world as a means of being fully responsible for our own creation. We have the ability to utilize these natural forces as the means of creating and creating ourselves by way of our own creations, but we have to not only realize that we do, but also know “how to do it”. Otherwise the creative forces of the material plane use us to create through and we become a product of unconscious instinct that’s determined by our animal nature instead of our higher Divine nature.

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.

Evolution of the Mind, Body and Spirit – Changing the Way we look at our Physical and Spiritual Nature

One of the problems we have in understanding our spiritual-energetic nature is we try to view it through the same model as our physical nature. Yet even how we tend to look at our physical nature is largely incorrect because we’ve been conditioned to a firm mindset based almost exclusively on material sciences which is usually only working with a fraction of the information involved, excluding the larger part of our physical make-up which is comprised of invisible fields and forces that are constantly operating within our physical apparatus. While we’ve been taught that our genes and physical make-up is “fixed” and permanent, and we are left at the mercy of whatever our genetic ancestry has given us, we now know scientifically, that this isn’t true.

Only 2% of our entire genetic composition goes into building the proteins that make up our body giving it the physical characteristics and general condition it exists in, while the other 98% (give or take) appears to be a memory processing biocomputer of sorts that’s being constantly programmed by our mind through our perception. As we perceive the world around us, and we process that information by interpreting it to give it meaning, and we build it into a story as a thematic reality that our mind is designed to tell, we simultaneously program the subconscious mind and DNA of the body with those same perceptions, and it acts to produce the material equivalent, both as our body and our outer reality. Everything around us in the material world of Nature is comprised of the same DNA and subconscious mind, both of which are “passive and receptive” in nature, and act as a receiver and transducer for various forms of information that it uses to reform the material body.

Just as the inner is always resonating and absorbing information from the outer and integrating it to become “like” the outer environment of which it’s a fundamental part and must function and survive in, the mind is always “in-forming the body” which serves as a vehicle and house for the mind within the material realm. There’s a constant morphing and transformation going on between parallel and inter-meshed dimensions as a natural means of adaptation that modifies and equalizes as a necessary evolutionary process that allows one aspect to exist and interact within another aspect. In order to exist, function, and operate within one plane or sphere, we have to “become the same” as that plane as a “mental condition” and energetic state.

Likewise, the mind, which constructs the body as its physical equivalent, exists as a field of information that’s in a constant state of transformation through resonance, sympathetic induction, and coherence. It’s constantly being formed, unformed, and reformed by the information it resonates with all around it, that it naturally acts to absorb, integrate and metabolize, shifting and morphing its structure as a paradigm to be able to see and create in new ways. Our mind naturally takes in and becomes one with whatever consciousness it exists within near proximity of that’s of the same nature (kind) as it is (what it naturally resonates with). Whatever is “like us” we act to naturally unite with and become “like” by taking on and acquiring whatever unique characteristics it possesses that are of the same nature, which means we can easily and naturally act as a vehicle or means for expressing it.

The spirit, which exists more as a life-force energy that “activates” and provides the power or energy, so to speak, for producing biological processes as regeneration, growth, and development into fully functioning systems, never actually takes on a form of any kind in the basic sense, but acts more as a fluid-like electricity that temporarily takes on shape of the form it serves to produce by coupling with matter, forming the energetic matrix as a form of lattice that helps structure and hold it together through tension (electromagnetic field), and fuels it’s operation as life giving biological processes. When the spirit leaves the body, it’s no longer “held together” and consciously operated, and so it “dies” and begins disintegrating and decomposing.

The soul acts as a medium that’s comprised of both spirit and essence, and uses the lower mind as a vehicle, just as the mind uses the body for a vehicle. The soul is the essence that spirit couples with to produce a material form out of the memory of itself that’s self-produced through the vehicle of the lower (subconscious) mind and the body (DNA). It operates and is formed by the same evolutionary process of adaptation and modification that’s comes from becoming one with different aspects of itself (frequency, type, and nature) to form a new whole. We only grow and evolve into something else through acquiring diverse qualities that enhance and develop our character in some way that changes our experience of ourselves, providing the soul with new forms of memory that modifies how it creates itself. By acquiring new kinds of experiences that act to “re-inform it”, the soul’s frequency is altered and the pattern as a paradigm inherent within that frequency, and how it naturally acts to structure all aspects of its material existence are altered simultaneously.

All of life that exists in the phenomenal world is created by combinations as coupling between various levels and degrees of the energetic and material world. Each level of complexity is achieved through added layers of consciousness that bestow it with higher and more diverse capacities that act to increase the complexity of its existence. All of the lower world of physical Nature has a soul, mind, and body or physical form. The soul is the accumulated and coherent memory of the kind, type, or species of which it’s a part of, that acts through the subconscious of the collective unconscious to configure the DNA accordingly to produce the etheric hologram (phantom) used as the blueprint for cellular regeneration, specialization, and spatial orientation (mapping) to produce the form as the bio-system of its memory. DNA is like the hardware and the soul the software that determines what operations are performed and conducted by the hardware. The soul, like the mind, is triune in nature as a Higher Soul, collective soul, and individual soul, all of which are produced by the higher aspect coupling with the lower and producing that same aspect on a lower plane as the process of descending from a higher plane of pure energy and unity into a lower plane of division and being located within a greater reality, all of which are various aspects of itself used to produce the reality it exists “within” (fields nested within greater fields) or by expression of the memory its composed of that come through experiences of its own making.

We are constantly in the process of forming and reforming based on what we resonate with, and absorb and become one with in everything around us. Our body, which is the product of our mind, is in a constant state of regenerating itself. While our basic appearance and characteristics may not change much outside of maturing and aging, our internal nature as our character (soul) has the ability to change quite drastically based on what we blend with and bring into expression somehow through and “as” us. Yet, at the same time, because all growth and evolution is based on resonance with the same thing all around us, and the fact that we only grow in an intentional manner through awareness and using our own mind through directed attention, choice, and will, evolution that takes place in a completely unconscious and natural way, can be quite slow, and we can easily digress instead of progressing. It’s only when the higher faculties of the soul and mind are skillfully employed that we grow in a deliberate and substantial manner. If our higher capacities are not awakened within us, and we live with no real awareness of our true ability to self-create in an intentional manner, we simply live out of our conditioning like animals through “trained behavior” born out of a conditioned mindset, and we continue to blend with, readily take on and become one with, and bring into expression more of the same character, ideas, and experiences, reinforcing and strengthening existing memory instead of transforming and evolving it.

When we remain primarily unconscious and a part of the collective unconscious of humanity produced by our identification with our “animal body” that’s designed to function and operate in a completely automatic fashion through instinct and conditioning, and we never become practiced in developing our ability to think and reason for ourselves, and “decide” who and how we’re going to be, then employ those qualities to create our experiences of ourselves, acquiring the memory of those experiences in an accumulative and integrative fashion, reprogramming and reconditioning ourselves by way of our own hand, we become lost in the illusion born out of an unconscious state.

       As humans we are both divine and animal. We have a higher nature and a lower nature, bridged and brought together as one by the medium of our individual soul, which contains the memory of both. Our divine nature exists as higher capacities of the mind that can directly influence and direct the reality produced by the lower mind, which exists in a primarily unconscious state that lacks the awareness and ability to self-create. In our lower state we are a product of our conditioning, and are trained to perceptions and behaviors by others who use their will to feed us suggestions. The lower mind of the material world is passive and receptive in nature and readily takes in the suggestions as ideas that form the thoughts and mental impressions of others, and uses them to generate more thoughts of the same nature, programming itself by way of those thoughts.

As we think, we imagine, and build whole realities out of our thoughts. These thoughts tune us to the vibration of those thoughts which has a self-organizing mechanism inherent in it that produces the material equivalent as a pattern or dynamic structure. This material structure produced by the thoughts of the mind, equally programs “all” DNA and the subconscious, not only in the body as the channel for the thoughts to express, but also of the environment surrounding us, which is also a product of the subconscious mind as part of the collective unconscious that governs all of life and Nature, within which we exist as an inherent part. All of our experiences of what we perceive as an outer reality are produced by our subconscious mind, which works by passively taking in whatever thoughts and ideas are active around it. It only acts as a receptor of the will, which are thoughts and ideas being projected and transmitted all around it, or in the ideal situation, by its “own will” as the conscious mind which acts as the gatekeeper of the lower mind and decides what’s allowed to impregnate it, and grow into a reality as a result, and what’s not.

The will is the higher capacity of the mind that can direct the attention of the lower mind, and give it commands as seeded ideas that it wants to grow and produce, first internally through the imagination, then externally through our perception of it around us and our activities based on it. We can alter the content of our mind by deliberately choosing how we “re-inform it”. By intentionally giving it certain types of thought, we work “on ourselves” to recreate ourselves. By choosing what we expose ourselves to in terms of outer ideas being played out around us, what situations and activities we willingly participate in and associate with, what people we maintain relationships with of various sorts, and begin instead to remain fully conscious of how we’re creating ourselves through unconscious absorption and programming.

When we remain fully awake and aware in even the most ordinary parts of our life, and actively choose what we “let in” and allow to take hold by continuing to think about it, and what we act to censor, edit, and keep out of our subconscious mind, we begin creating ourselves in a deliberate and powerful way. We step fully into our only “true responsibility” with a fully awake and aware mind. We begin the process of creating ourselves exactly as we want to be, instead of just “ending up” the way we are due to our conditioning where we were created and established by others through a predominately unconscious state and a complete lack of self-awareness.

Once we wake up within our own life and become fully aware, we begin realizing that in every moment we’re deciding what to let in, take on and become a part of, and create ourselves to be “like” as a result. We realize that even when we’re in relationships and situations that we need to be in in order to live, that we still maintain the ability to choose what we allow to affect us, and what we don’t. We can choose what we focus on, give our attention to, and think about, and what we don’t. When we walk away and leave a situation we can choose not to take it with us and continue thinking about it. We can bring a new awareness to our relationships and realize how they’re acting to develop us based on the character traits and dynamics being consistently demonstrated and acted out, and we can make new decisions based on the clarity that this brings as to whether or not to maintain them or let them go. We can decide with a new level of awareness what new types of relationships we form with new types of people, only choosing ones that we admire and respect and want to become more like. Ones that actively demonstrate desirable qualities and character that we’d like to develop in ourselves by way of the interaction it provides.

By realizing that we grow, develop, and evolve through whatever we naturally absorb, merge with, and blend together with energetically, we become more responsible and proactive in our own life. By realizing that our subconscious mind acts in a natural, non-willful way to absorb whatever ideas are being played out around it that it’s exposed to and exists within near proximity of, we can learn to only place ourselves intentionally in desirable situations, and actively act as the gatekeeper to filter what we consciously choose to let in or keep out. We can learn to utilize the power of our own will to intentionally program ourselves with the ideas we want to experience as a way of developing ourselves by way of those experiences. We can become aware of why we’re the way we are and employ the means to change our mind and our lives in whatever way we want to.

Archetypes, Morphic Fields, and Memory – The Holographic- Etheric Blueprint for Creating Reality

Memory exists not only as a personal creation we form as the result of what we can call “real life experiences”, but exists as the very basis for knowledge itself as ideas that can be used to create realities. There’s a two-way flow between a reality becoming a memory, and a memory becoming a reality. We often form a memory from an event in our life that has a strong emotional impact, that we then use over and over throughout our life as a form of perceptual filter and template for creating more of the same ‘type’ of realities. The memory itself isn’t formed as an exact recollection of the factual details of what happened, but rather as the story we told ourselves about what happened and why, and what it meant about us and the world in general as a result.

We make up stories about the events of our life as a means of trying to process and make sense of them, and the story we form as the meaning and significance of the event becomes a kind of life theme that the memory itself merely serves to represent. Once a memory is formed from an intense emotional experience, and is turned into a kind of template of meaning as a perceptual filter, and we begin referencing it on a regular basis as the means of providing us with an instant interpretation for all current events of a similar nature, it becomes an habitual perception as a life theme that we use to form our routine experiences of life.

In a like manner, what we call ‘Universal knowledge” exists also as a form of memory in the Akashic or Unified field of infinite potential as universal archetypes or principles. Archetypes are a form of memory as ideas that are holistic in nature as a hologram that provides the perceptual lens and template for creating realities out of that provide us with certain types of life experiences. An archetype serves as a generic prototype that we absorb into our mental field and reform into a personalized version by how we adapt and integrate it into our mental paradigm as applied to our life conditions and circumstances. When ideas “come to us” out of nowhere, they rise up in our mind and play out in much the same way as a normal memory is recollected. They come to us as a form of living concept or scenario that’s a potential pattern for using as a theme to produce a similar form or reality out of.

Archetypes as universal memory exist in the causal field as generic prototypes for utilizing at the personal level to create experiences that produce personal memory of the same kind. An archetype is an “idea” in its whole unified form that contains an overall pattern as a story complete with attributes and qualities in varying degrees that form characteristics that produce a form of personality with distinct behaviors. In beings bestowed with the capacity of higher conscious, an identity emerges out of the personality, that “creates” by telling a certain type of story as the expression of its character or inner nature within specific conditions, situations, and life circumstances.

A personal memory that’s produced by either an actual life experience or by applying an archetypal memory to produce a life experience, that’s then used in a habitual manner as a theme for creating more experiences of the same nature, creates a ‘thought-form’. Thought-forms are produced by the modified adaptations of a universal theme as a personal and unique version, that’s imagined, concentrated  on with intensity, and embodied through action that forms just like a universal archetype. Thoughts as ideas that are imagined as full sensory experiences with strong emotions (made real), produce an electromagnetic field that forms into a holographic form or reality that serves to populates the astral plane of the collective unconscious as a memory that can be accessed, absorbed, and utilized by others through morphic resonance. Those of a similar nature (vibratory frequency) are able to accommodate the same type of thoughts while mistaking them for their own.

Anyone who is “tuned” to the same frequency can access, receive, and utilize the thought-form in the same way they utilize a universal archetype or they perceive it as their own self-generated thoughts. All similar things influence each other through morphic resonance. Memory is not stored in the brain or body as many believe, but is stored in the soul as the morphic electromagnetic field that surrounds, permeates, and is boded to the body that’s also directly connected to the greater mind-field of the astral plane of mass consciousness. Only those of the same species, kind, type, nature, and character as a cluster of accumulated memories are “tuned to the same frequency” and act as a “receiver” through resonance and sympathetic induction, which acquires the memory as a thought-form that it believes is its own or is self-produced. Thoughts come to us and play out in our mind in much the same way as our own memories do. It’s an imaginary process that gives us a new pattern as an idea for acting out in our life in a congruent manner to create more memories of the same kind.

The spirit, soul, and body are simultaneously unformed, evolutionary, and stabilized patterns. The spiritual plane, which is causal in nature, is unformed and exists as pure consciousness, raw information, archetypal ideas, and patterns in their free- flowing potential state. This is the unified field (Akasha) of pure information as archetypes and universal memory that are available for self-creating at the physical level of the soul and body. They can only create (become formed as something specific) in the material world through a physical channel, individual mind and will (life-force).

The soul acts as a ‘medium’ between the spiritual and the physical, and is both of the spirit and form whose constitution is comprised of accumulated memory that forms a unique variation as a multidimensional being with a three-fold nature. The soul walks between worlds, vibrating at the frequency of its integrated memory, where it draws on the archetypes of the spiritual realm, and acts as a channel and transducer for interpreting it through adaptation to its personal model, modifying it and creating a unique variation by how it builds it into its astral-etheric constitution to produce new forms of thought and behavior that modifies and evolves its character to higher and more expanded levels of understanding.

The entire physical world is created by a (the) soul. The soul in-forms and structures physical reality as a combination of archetypal themes that are correlated, coordinated, and congruent in nature. The soul provides the astral-etheric holographic blueprint that acts to fashion its own body, while tuning into and resonating with that same reality in the outer world. The body is grown, organized, and spatially structured through the etheric interface of the soul. Its energetic memory as a series of dynamic interlaced patterns produces a morphogenetic electromagnetic field as a holographic, ghost-like image (invisible light) that provides the vibratory structure as a torsion field (life-force) that orchestrates the cellular regeneration, specialization, and spatial orientation in sync with the genetic code inherited from the parents, which is of the same memory-frequency of the soul utilizing it. They’re compatible in other words.

The body as a cellular organism is given life, structured and produced, animated, and “held together” by the soul. Physical matter has no life or structure of its own without a soul. The soul is the morphic field of accumulated and integrated memory as a vibratory frequency that produces the “self-organizing mechanism” and tension-field for producing the body as its physical equivalent or twin. Matter is the passive and inactive (feminine) aspect of consciousness and only obtains the active and formative aspect (masculine) of consciousness by absorbing it and acting as a host for it, which is what serves to shape and animate it with natural behaviors.

The subconscious mind of the body and DNA is passive and receptive in nature and is programmed with new ideas as patterns of formation and behavior by the higher, active mind of the soul. The soul exists in polar relationship with both the higher realm and the lower, and is receptive to the higher and active in the lower. The ideas that are “received” from the higher and transmitted to the lower, and then acted on repeatedly forms a memory that becomes habit. Once an idea is brought into practice consistently, and is “built into the muscle”, so to speak, it becomes natural and automatic. It becomes a permanent part of our nature as our soul’s essence.

Humans are bestowed with higher capacities of the mind and have the ability to self-create by producing its own memory in an intentional and deliberate manner. The animal kingdom and the entire natural world operates strictly from memory as instinct, where all members of the same species and kind, behave in much the same way, and changes occur only on rare occasion where a new behavior is developed, that then makes that behavior available to all others of the same species, through what we call the collective unconscious, which is synonymous with the astral plane of the Earth, which is the “soul” of the Earth. Humans have the ability to produce thought-forms that serve to populate the astral plane with new memory that acts in much the same manner as universal archetypes do.

These thought-forms are transmitted fluently throughout the astral plane where they can be picked up on and received or absorbed by anyone who is of the same kind and “tuned to” the same type of memory. Likewise, whatever thoughts as memories we dwell in and constantly recollect and relive in our imagination, we tune ourselves to, resonate with, and act as a receiver for more of the same type of thoughts. Because the tuning, receiving, and transmitting of thought-forms are all of the same nature, we don’t realize we’re being “given them” and usually mistake them as our own, much like we do universal archetypes that usually come through moments of inspiration, insight into something, or a “ah-ha” moment as a sudden realization.

When we live out of our unconscious, lower, non-creative nature, we fail in the most basic sense to evolve through the incorporation of new and diverse thought, and can live our entire life out of our past. We have a natural tendency to use past memories to create present experiences in a habitual fashion. This is because there’s no memories we resonate with more than our own memories of the past, so we tend to consistently think, feel, behave, and perceive more of the same type of experiences. We only see our past in everything else. This is a feature of our lower, animal, subconscious mind which operates in a purely automatic and habitual fashion to bring the memories of the past into the present, using them to perceive, interpret, and produce more of the same type of behavior and experiences. We simply repeat the same themes, story-lines, and behavioral dynamics over and over, without realizing that through choice and free will, we can choose to intentionally break old habits and create new ones by embodying new qualities and ways of thinking and being.

By providing ourselves with new knowledge and information that we first imagine as a reality and practical application that we then act on repeatedly, we create new types of experience that produce new types of memory, which when made into a habit, change our vibratory constitution and evolve us at the soul level according to those memories. By applying knowledge to form new memories, we not only see the world differently, but we use those memories to create our experiences in the present, and continue to produce more of the same type of experiences, accumulating to the point where they modify our existing model. However we intentionally act to shape our mental paradigm becomes our soul’s constitution which is eternal, and carried forward as natural tendencies, temperament, and disposition. It literally changes our personality and identity, which is how we self-create by way of our own self-expression and the corresponding creation of our outer world.

As we change internally, our outer world changes as a direct correspondence. We tune into a different reality, act to consistently perceive that reality, and receive, process, and transmit more of that same type of reality. To change others and the world around us, we have to change ourselves and our inner world which is what’s producing it through morphic resonance. When we change our “mind” we change how everything in the outer world appears. We are tuned to a new frequency, organize the outer world to that frequency by what stands out and is enhanced and embellished, and what doesn’t. We begin noticing and perceiving different things. We look at the same thing in a new light and see something different as a result. We act to attract new things and begin interacting with the outer world in a whole new way. Old relationships and situations die and fade away, and new ones are birthed and come to life. We act on ourselves to grow and evolve ourselves to new types of form and reality.

Summary:      

A memory as an archetype (prototype) is a frequency that’s comprised of different types of information as patterns (dynamic form) that have a self-organizing mechanism as life-force energy. Information itself is unformed and passive until it’s energized (charged) by life-force and organized into a living biological (fully functioning) form that’s self-sustaining and self-perpetuating. Whatever form we take on as archetypal forces becomes the memory of our soul, substance, and behavior, and tunes us to the vibration of that memory, where we connect and resonate with more of the same memory in everything else, while acting as a receiver and channel for it.

The archetypal forces that make up our soul’s nature, represented by the zodiac in various degrees and angles, form our mind as our paradigm and perceptual lens that structures the entire outer world to be of the same nature and memory as we are. The soul not only fabricates the body as its physical equivalent (temple and vehicle), but also forms the outer reality as a larger, more diverse and complex version of the same idea that sets the stage for acting it out. We only see in others and everything else, what’s in us as memory. Our soul’s memory forms our personality and all of our natural inclinations, propensities, and behaviors, which spontaneously births our identity, based on what we naturally associate with and relate to.

We attract (and are attracted to), engage in, and act to facilitate more of the same type of relationships and experiences that are inherent in our memories. Energetically we’re an antenna that’s tuned into a frequency as accumulated memory that acts to receive, adapt and modify, and produce more experiences of the same kind as a life theme. Our life theme is expressed by the story we’re always in the process of telling ourselves about things that give them meaning. We naturally act to produce a congruent and consistent version of reality as a story-line that plays out as dynamic interactive theme.

Vibration produces a morphic field as an electromagnetic field (spiraling motion that both pulls together and pushes apart, forming a stable pattern) as a holographic 3-D virtual image that organizes and concentrates essence (light) into a biological form that functions in a way that’s natural to that form. Vibration creates this same basic structure on multiple levels simultaneously as an image, scenario, and greater reality that “in-forms matter” as astral light that becomes a holographic-etheric blueprint for growing, organizing, and spatially forming the physical equivalent. As we think, feel, and imagine, we shape light into the reality of our thoughts, imprinting the ether around us with that impression as a vibratory frequency that becomes our “signature” for creating as our style and how we “handle our subject”.

Projection is an Absolute Science – “Unveiling Hidden Aspects of the Subconscious Mind”

The idea of “projection” can be difficult to understand in the practical sense because most of us have no real awareness of our own subconscious mind, and the true nature of denial and emotional suppression. As a general rule we naturally tend to perceive ourselves as being separate and apart from others and our environment. We don’t realize in the most basic sense that we’re actually the one creating our perception of both. To fully understand the power of this idea requires a basic knowledge of the nature of the mind and its ability to create all aspects of our reality as being “subjective” in nature. Our perception of the outer world is a direct correspondence to the hidden and unknown aspects of our inner world. Both the inner and the outer world is a product of our mind and is produced by the same mental paradigm as the “perceptual lens” we filter everything through in order to experience it.

What we call reality “exists” only as we perceive it. All perception is reality. There’s no set or generic definition for what we call “objective” reality, because no matter how you go about it, it’s always the result of someone’s perception, and doesn’t exist outside of the mind that’s creating it. What’s being observed outwardly and the mind doing the observing inwardly are a part of the same event as a dynamic and fluid interaction. Our mind literally influences the matter around us, altering and shaping how it “appears” to match our ideas and beliefs about it. Our mental paradigm is a field of energy that vibrates at a certain frequency, and is comprised of a dynamic series of correlated patterns formed by a “self-organizing mechanism” that simultaneously “reorganizes” everything else to be of the same structure, likeness, and behaviors.

Our mind is 3-fold in nature. We have 3 aspects, levels, and functions of our mind that act in unison to produce both the internal and external reality that correspond and correlate to each other as complementary opposites. The same “pattern” as a holographic reality exists on different scales, levels, and degrees of complexity simultaneously. All ideas and qualities or characteristics exist as polar opposites that form a gradient scale between positive and negative extremes of the same idea or thematic reality. Nothing exists as independent of everything else, but rather as the result of the relationship it forms with everything else. In order for an idea as an experience to play out, we have to have people that play opposite roles that contrast, correlate, and relate to each other as the necessary dynamic to create the desired experience.

All experience comes as a form of story-line as a dynamic theme that’s produced by our character and the behavioral dynamic we’re conditioned to that is constantly playing out as an outer event. We can only know “good” by relating and contrasting it to its opposite as “bad”. We only know and can define “hot” by how it exists in relationship with “cold”. So in order to experience and define ourselves as something specific, we have to enter into relationship with its opposite characteristic. Opposites (of the same idea) attract, stimulate each other, and serve to call forth into expression its opposite and complementary characteristic. In order to experience and know ourselves as courageous, we have to compare and contrast ourselves to the opposite as cowardice. Both are formed by a response to fear, and exist as a choice we make as to how we’re going to respond, or what kind of experience of ourselves we’re going to create by way of it.

Our mind operates according to the law of polarity and only exists in relationship with itself (same frequency as a dynamic pattern) in everything else (Dyad). Our subconscious mind is fully functioning and creative without our direct awareness. It’s the part of the mind that we share with all of the natural world and animal kingdom known as instinct, intuition, and morphic resonance, or what we’ve come to call the collective unconscious. It performs all automatic biological functions of the body in a constant and continuous manner, produces emotional-chemical responses as an interaction and communication with everything around us in our environment, and is what acts to form what we call our “perceptual lens” as a series of mental filters that we filter information through, restructuring it into personalized versions of reality.

Our mind exists as a field of information structured by accumulated memory that vibrates at a certain frequency that has a dynamic, multidimensional pattern inherent within it as a form of “theme”, that also has what we call a self-organizing mechanism that reorders all matter as energetic essence into the same type of pattern on a larger scale as an interaction and relationship with it. We all vibrate to a certain frequency that has a quality of conscious, character, and theme inherent in it. We “resonate with” (bring out and reconfigure) that same reality as a dynamic pattern in everyone and everything else, changing how it behaves and “appears to us”. We change it to be of the same qualities, thematic reality and behavioral dynamic that we are so we can continue telling our story in a consistent and congruent manner. We reform everything to be of the same nature as we are. We “see” and exist in relationship with everything as a way of fitting it into our story about things, and in doing so, change not only its form as its appearance, but its nature in terms of the meaning we assign to the behaviors it displays as a way of experiencing it.

We never see others or the outside world as it actually is, a part from us, but rather as we reform it to be “like us”. We remake everything to be of the same nature, character, mind-set, attitude, behaviors, and “story” as a vibratory pattern, as we are. The object being observed and the person observing it, are a part of the same event. Matter “literally” responds (resonates) to the consciousness of the mind observing it, and morphs (shifts) to match it in vibration. What we expect and believe to be true, we literally create by how and what we perceive in any situation. We only notice, abstract, and use to compose an idea what matches our perception and expectation, configuring it into a new form with modified characteristics that are complementary to us and match our intention. We literally act on all material objects (matter is passive and fluid) to activate (turn on) and bring out certain qualities (complementary to our own), while deactivating (turning off) others, remixing it, changing the appearance and behavior of others and the entire material world as a cohesive and congruent whole. We’re always directly influencing others and the natural world through our intentions, thoughts, emotions, and actions.

All ideas that play out as dynamics of some sort to create a reality as an experience, exist as a whole pattern with multiple roles, as well as conscious (aware) and unconscious (unaware) aspects that act on each other to attract, influence and reform, while simultaneously repelling, comparing and contrasting, and together play out a shared dynamic as a fundamental form of self-expression that simultaneously self-creates through its own outer, co-creation.

We are conditioned (tuned and developed) to certain themes and dynamics, as whole patterns that form the basis for creating a reality that require complementary roles in order to play them out. The entire outer world is composed and organized by the subconscious mind as our outer energy field that encompasses and permeates the body, while extending quite some distance outward, blending with everything else and forming our perception of the outer world as the complementary opposite of our inner, self-conscious world of sensory, brain and heart oriented thinking and feeling. The outer world is structured by the “content” of the subconscious mind, most of which is unknown to us at the conscious – aware level, and reflects back to us hidden aspects of ourselves that are covertly operating to create our experience of reality without our direct awareness.

By realizing and becoming aware of our perception and judgment of others we can see aspects of ourselves that we’re normally unaware of. What we see that what’s outside of ourselves and in others, is a direct reflection and projection of our own subconscious mind. This is how we can become aware of aspects of ourselves that normally remain hidden from us. Once we realize that our entire perception of what we call reality is a product of our mind (both of our self-conscious and subconscious) that exist in polarity to each other as inner and outer, self and other, all of which are of the same “nature” as a vibratory frequency and quality of consciousness that shapes matter into thematic patterns, we can begin seeing ourselves and our life in a new light.

Denial

Anytime we’re made to feel guilty, ashamed, or humiliated in some way, we deny those emotions and behaviors, and suppress them. Whatever we deny and repress, stays alive inside of us, and continues acting in our lives at the subconscious level to create our experience of reality. We create an illusion around them as a series of stories that makes them “seem different” than they really are, or as a means of defending ourselves against them as a way of proving we’re not like that by making others out to be like that instead. This is why most people have trouble seeing, recognizing, and understanding their own projections, because they’re in denial about them, even to themselves. Whatever we deny having as a character trait, we project onto others, see it in them, and then judge them and react to it. We can come to know our own unconscious aspects because we have a pronounced reaction to them in others. All reaction of any kind, good or bad, comes through resonance – being of the same frequency as its polar opposite. Like always produces more of what’s like itself.

Likewise, we develop what we call our “issues” around our own denied aspects and the dynamics we’ve been conditioned to. If we’ve been called a liar, and made to feel bad or wrong for doing so, and were punished and made to feel ashamed of ourselves, we suppress those emotions while deny being a liar to ourselves and others, while simultaneously projecting that idea onto others and see them as being the one lying to us. We continue lying while telling ourselves a story about it that makes it seem different, so we convince ourselves that we’re not lying at all. We justify our “right to lie” based on our reason for doing it. Anyone who has an “issue” with people lying, or outright profess themselves to be honest and truthful by making a point out of it, and then tell stories as memories of some sort where lying, deception, and betrayal were a main theme, have an absolute tendency to lie, deceive, and betray themselves, and are usually perceived by others as being a liar. They go into denial about it by building stories around it as defensive mechanisms that make it seem like something else. They tell themselves a story as a form of illusion that either gives them the right to lie, or that justifies their right to do whatever it is they’re doing. Then of course we have what we call “white lies”, little lies, fibs, or lies as a means of being polite and tactful so that you’re not hurting people’s feelings. So we develop “degrees of lying” that tend to candy coat it so it doesn’t seem so bad.

A person who has trouble trusting others, is untrustworthy themselves. They’ve been conditioned somehow by participating in a dynamic where “trust” was a main theme, and are therefore “imprinted” with that pattern, where they can play any role in that dynamic based on what role the other person they’re in relationship with plays. They go into relationships expecting deceit and betrayal of some form, look for it constantly, and can interpret any number of behaviors to mean the person is untrustworthy. They’re constantly suspect of the other person, accuse them of things, and have a tendency to spy on and investigate them by snooping in their stuff, checking their phone, and any communication methods, secretly following them, or always looking for evidence of some sort that can be used to prove they’re untrustworthy. All of these acts make the person themselves untrustworthy, deceptive, and betraying the trust the other person had in them.  This usually happens without them ever seeing it that way because they’re telling themselves a story about why they’re doing what they’re doing that gives them the right to do it without it meaning that they’re violating the trust of the other person. The reality is that they’re the ones that can’t be trusted and they attract and enter into relationship with others who will fulfill that same dynamic as a shared reality.

Whatever character someone automatically assigns to another person as a form of what we call “value judgment” (what most people mean when they use the term judgment), or judgment that’s not based on the nature and actions of the person themselves, but more of a classification of sorts that fits them into a category, is showing us traits that we ourselves possess. We’re looking through the “lens” of that quality and seeing it in everything else while simultaneously acting to bring it out in people or situations by how we act and interact. We’ve developed mental filters that accentuate and bring out certain qualities (that match our judgment) while ignoring or downplaying qualities that counteract, disprove, or don’t fit our idea about them. We remake people in our own image to be a part of the same character traits, behavioral dynamics, and life theme as we are. We see them in a way that allows us to keep telling our story about things in a consistent manner.

This is the “self-organizing” ability of vibration to influence and organize matter into “patterns” that have distinct characteristics, behaviors, and themes in them produced by the meaning we give things. Our criteria for judging others is a product of our own consciousness and mental paradigm. We act as a magnet to attract those who share the same tendencies and who are programmed to the same behaviors who cooperatively participate in acting out the same type of idea as a shared experience. Whatever pattern we’re programmed with, we are always playing every role in that dynamic, and switch back and forth in complementary positions. We both initiate and act to set the dynamic into motion, while stimulating it in the other person and they react in a like manner, giving the same idea back to us where we experience ourselves as being on the receiving end or the victim of our own self-initiated tendencies.

One of the best ways to recognize your own subconscious or “shadow” aspects, is to pay attention to your own thoughts as the stories you’re always in the process of telling yourself about others and the events of life, while reflecting on where those stories came from. What relationship or event as a memory of the past is that story based on? If you could see yourself as having the same tendencies while making them out to be different by how you explain or justify them, what would they be? Reflect on what role you’re playing in a familiar dynamic or theme. One that you’re used to playing, know how to play, and have play many times before. Allow yourself to realize that the entire outer world is being “viewed through” the lens of your mental paradigm (both conscious and subconscious) which determines “how it appears to you”, and that what you’re seeing in others is the same aspects that you yourself possess. Most of which you’re not fully aware of because you’ve built an illusion around them. Allow yourself to notice that the same “behavior” and act is involved, only made different by the story you tell yourself about “why” you’re doing it that makes it “seem” different.

We can only work with what we’re aware of and “own” in ourselves. Projection is how we are able to see the content of our own subconscious mind so that we can begin working to heal and transform it in an intentional and deliberate manner. The only thing we can truly change in life is ourselves. By changing ourselves, we change the world around us. By recognizing our own conditioned tendencies as themes acted out through behavioral dynamics that we naturally act to initiate and participate in, we can begin exercising our creative ability through choice and will to deliberately develop ourselves by transforming existing character traits into new ones.

We know when we’ve healed ourselves of conditioned patterns when we no longer see those same character traits in others as a basic, automatic, and generalized perception. As we change ourselves internally, the way the world outside of us appears changes as a direct correspondence. Other people always act as a mirror for us, reflecting back to us hidden character traits and tendencies as our automatic perception of them. When we no longer share the same traits with another, we lose interest in them and no longer find them stimulating. For this reason, as we change, so do our relationships and the story we’re always in the process of telling by how we perceive, interpret, and live our life.

The Importance of Working with an Ideal – Creating a Vision for Your Ultimate Development

creating Cameran Grey

        While many of us have been trained to the idea of creating a vision for our life in terms of lifestyle, professional career, relationships, health, etc., few of us embrace the importance of forming an “ideal” of ourselves in terms of self-development or spiritual realization. Yet, the interesting fact that many fail to realize is that all other goals as activities or accomplishments of our life, depend on our personal development for achieving in a natural and automatic fashion. Our “life” is created out of our “self”. We are the creators of our life as a fundamental form of self-expression. By changing ourselves and acquiring new abilities, all other areas of our life change accordingly. If we try to change “areas of our life” without changing the part of ourselves that are naturally producing it, we struggle, become frustrated, and usually fail in the ultimate sense, often, without ever knowing why.

Another “fluffy comment” that’s popular these days is the idea that you’re “perfect just the way you are”. This idea is usually addressing various forms of judgment from other people, or self-esteem issues around “not being good enough”. Yet self-perfection, as a personal “ideal”, which is the ultimate and only real spiritual goal, is something we not only decide for ourselves, but are also fully responsible for executing. Nobody can develop us for us (intentionally), just as no one can heal us. All healing and self-growth is something only we can do for ourselves by how we use our mind to control our body, our behaviors, and activities that we naturally engage in. In much the same way we create a vision as an ultimate outcome, achieved through systematic steps and stages as goals necessary for achieving the outcome, we create an “ideal” of ourselves as “being the best we can be”, then aspire towards it by intentionally developing latent potential, healing emotional and psychological issues that prevent it, or being the way we want to be in terms of character and quality of consciousness.

expanding energy

Perfection can be thought of as taking an idea, and turning it into the ultimate form of that idea as an “ideal”. Perfection is whatever perfect means to us. No one else can tell us what perfection means, or what qualities we need to develop in order to be perfect. Perfection is a standard or quality of being. Our concept of self-perfection as our “ideal self”, is something that we must soul search in order to realize, then want it bad enough to devote ourselves to doing what it takes to become it. Our personal ideal has nothing to do with material possessions, wealth, status, or creating a self image that we portray to the world as a false image of how we’d like to be seen by others, but rather as an essential part of our true nature that’s developed internally, that becomes a natural part of our being. It comes by developing qualities that evolve our character to a higher level of awareness and self-control, which forms the foundation necessary for a whole series of positive changes to take place automatically as the natural offspring of new qualities of consciousness. The most natural way to create in all areas of our life, is to start by consciously creating our “self”. Out of our self, comes everything else in an effortless and spontaneous way.

In many of the spiritual traditions, which are all focused on self-development from a moral perspective, they provide a system of understanding qualities of consciousness as possessing opposite yet complementary aspects of each other as vices and virtues. Vices are poor character traits that form weakness that lead to various forms of addictions and moral degradation, and are predominantly destructive in nature. Virtues are positive, opposite qualities of vices, which provide the means for transforming them. Virtues are qualities of higher levels of consciousness that are strengths, lead to growth and nourishment, and naturally produce very positive and constructive results in all areas of your life. Virtues are loving and unselfish in nature, and act naturally to produce a sense of harmony, pervading contentment, and happiness not only for ourselves, but for everyone involved. Virtues expand our awareness and increase our ability to both give and receive higher forms of knowledge and unconditional love.

calculation

Anytime we’re creating, we have to start with a vision of the desired outcome as an experience, so we know what the process for creating it will be. Though your ultimate vision for your ideal self may take many steps to accomplish, it’s important that you work on only one step at a time, and don’t start the next step until that one is well established and a part of your natural way of being (built into your subconscious). One of the ways we set ourselves up for failure, is by trying to take on too many things at one time creating a feeling of being overwhelmed and therefore struggling, or by scattering our energy in too many directions by trying to do too much all at once. Every acquisition of a new quality requires complete concentration and devoted practice over an extended period of time in order to “build it into the muscle”, where it becomes a natural way of being that no longer requires conscious effort.

Even with concentrated effort and a strong sense of discipline to stay with a task over a long period of time, you’ll relapse many times throughout the day by falling into habitual patterns that are well established and forgetting what you’re doing. This is natural, and when you realize you’re off task, simply re-center (remind) yourself in your desired intention, refocus your mind and adjust your mood, and continuing practicing. Repeatedly bring yourself back anytime you forget, and continue practicing without getting discouraged, and the new quality and behavior associated with it will begin taking hold, and you’ll be able to stay focused for longer and longer periods of time. All forms of intentional creation come from your ability to concentrate your efforts and stay focused on what it is you’re creating.

The approximate time for breaking one habit by replacing it with another, is forty days, or six weeks. The approximate time for simply establishing a new habit that doesn’t involve breaking an old one, is three weeks (half the time), or twenty one days, and it’s fully established (permanent) in six weeks. This gives you an idea of the amount of time you should plan on dedicating to each step of your development. You’ll also develop the ability to concentrate and stay with something for long periods of time, commit to devotional practice, and develop the patience it takes to accomplish a major feat (which a behavioral change is). You can consider your goal accomplished when you become that way automatically, and no longer have to think about it, or put conscious effort into it. All behaviors are “learned and conditioned” (trained), and likewise, can be unlearned and reconditioned. Our initial development was a predominately unconscious process, and all we’re doing here is making it a fully conscious process undertaken with a deliberate and determined attitude.

In order to realize what your ideal is, simply allow yourself to realize that an idea of who you really are, and how you’d like to be already exists inside of you as the qualities, talents, natural gifts, and interests that you naturally possess. No matter what stage of your life you’re at, you’ve only brought a small portion of your “self” into expression, while the greater part of yourself as “potential” remains dormant inside of you. Parts of you may have been developed in a negative way through your initial conditioning, which you can transform into its positive opposite quality. For example, fear and cowardice (often displayed through anger or defensiveness), can be transformed by embodying courage and bravery in its place. Hatred and a sense of animosity, can be transformed with love and compassion. Whatever is the opposite quality is what’s used to transform an existing “bad quality” or “destructive tendency”. Every “quality”, which has a behavior inherent in it, exists in a dual state of complementary opposites (sympathy and antipathy) as a positive or negative expression of the same quality of consciousness. Just as “hot and cold” are degrees of the same thing, and light and dark are degrees of the same thing, love and hate, fear and courage, humility and confidence, are all degrees of the same thing, and its opposite can be used to transform it by degrees. In order to begin practicing, start with smaller things or ideas that don’t produce a strong emotional charge or aren’t intense in nature, and are therefore easier to manage, and gradually work your way up to ideas that trigger you emotionally causing reactive behaviors.

Our state-of-mind (quality of consciousness) is created by 3 aspects that are always in-sync with each other. These three aspects are what we focus on, what we tell ourselves about what we’re focused on that makes it mean something, and what we’re doing with our body. Our physiology is a direct reflection of our state-of-mind as our quality of consciousness that we’re employing at any given moment. If you can’t control your attention and thoughts, you can learn to control your body and how you’re behaving instead. We can employ a quality by modeling the behavior associated with it. Just like when we were kids, we play acted and pretended to be “like” our favorite characters and role models, we utilize the same techniques as adults. Pretend like you’re an actor acting out a certain character within a specific role.

Cosmic_creativity

If you want to develop confidence, for example, find someone that you consider confident and watch and study them. What is it that they’re doing that makes them “confident”? What’s their posture like, their attitude, body language, and how do they hold themselves? How do they speak, the tone, speed or rate, and emphasis? What are their facial expressions, demeanor, and idiosyncrasies? How do they dress? Study them, elicit their strategy, and then imitate the same way of being. Practice until you feel comfortable with it and incorporate your own style into it. Then practice being that way in general. Practice it as a normal way of being in all areas of your life. Notice that when you change how you’re acting, that you experience yourself in new ways. You feel different and sense yourself in a different way. Step into the feeling and embrace it with a new level of awareness. Allow yourself to kind of fall in love with how your feeling and being. Get off on it. Allow yourself to feel empowered by it, not in an arrogant or conceited way, but in an expressive, uninhibited and expansive way. Notice the freedom it allows and new levels of self-expression that are very powerful in terms of not only the freedom you feel, but the response you get from others who are forming an impression of you and admiring you. Be an actor in your own life, and take it all in. After a while, it’ll become natural and normal.

In order to acquire a quality by practicing and becoming it in mind and body, we have to have a good enough idea of what that quality is like in terms of attitude, emotions, demeanor and behaviors so that we can practice being that way by imitating it. Don’t worry that you’ll be “copying somebody”, because the process of imitating is what allows your own style to come forth, you simply need a starting point as a kind of template for producing it. Once you begin practicing, you’ll come into yourself in terms of being that way, and you’ll produce your own unique version of it. We need a channel of expression in order to “find” our own style for doing things. Your style for “being” exists within you like your fingerprint or signature, and simply needs to be awakened and given a channel for outward expression, until you start feeling comfortable and natural being that way. Keep in mind, you always feel a bit (or a lot) awkward and out of place, or “not yourself” at first, because it’s new and you’re not used to it. But just keep practicing as if you’re an actor in the “play of your life”, and after awhile it’ll start feeling completely natural to you, and you’ll begin automatically “feeling” that way, and perceiving life from that perspective. All it takes is dedicated practice and a spirit of renewal and self-realization by bringing forth parts of yourself that up to this point in your life, you’ve never really experienced before!

Understanding the Musical Nature of the Mind as a Vibratory Frequency

The Mind as a Frequency Creates a Consistent Experience of Reality

waveslight

When we use the term “musical” in this context, we’re not referring to music in the ordinary sense, but rather of the laws that govern music, which are the primary laws of vibration. Everything in the universe is energy vibrating at different frequencies. These frequencies are all interwoven and form a greater frequency as a form of symphonic orchestration or ecological system called “life”. All frequencies as a dimension, exist as an octave or range of the same “type” of vibration from a lower to a higher that comes as a growth or building process. Once a vibration reaches the highest point in an octave, it shifts to the next higher octave where the beginning note or vibration as an accumulation or summation, forms the base or foundation as the lowest point in the next octave, which begins a new growth process within that higher range or dimension. A simple dimension is comprised of a scale that’s made up of three octaves (stages), as interwoven and interdependent scales or levels of the same overall dimension as a harmonious creation or coherent reality. This 3 in 1 law, is inherent in every aspect of what we call material life.

In a scale or range of vibration, which is comprised of 7 notes, aspects, or stages, the highest note is the unification or summation of all the preceding notes of which it’s comprised of as an accumulative process. The higher we go in vibration, the more unified and holistic we become. The highest vibration in a scale contains all the vibrations or tones within that scale. So as we move from lower to higher, we move from singular to unified, from a “personal self” to a more “universal self”. Likewise, in these three levels of the same overall reality, also referred to as the body, mind, and spirit, the body is the lowest (singular) vibration, that forms a personal identity as an individual (body identification), the mind is a more expanded reality that includes all of our local or contained material reality, and the spirit includes not only all of humanity as a cohesive reality, but all of life as an accumulated or greater whole comprised of numerous individuals. So the higher our minds vibration, the more universal we become in our identity, and the more we move away from personal and selfish perceptions, agenda’s, and tendencies.

fabric of space

Energy as vibration, is a form of consciousness that has a self-organizing mechanism inherent in it that forms a distinct pattern as a series of smaller interwoven patterns that are all harmonious in nature and of the same frequency. This energetic pattern as a certain vibration or quality of consciousness, forms our individual mind as a paradigm or mental “model of the world”. Out of our paradigm as a pattern comes a reality that’s of the same pattern with the same self-organizing ability that reorders the elements of our outer environment to match the pattern of our inner environment as our mind or invisible aspect. Therefore our mind, as the invisible pattern of our vibratory frequency, forms our perceptual lens (we look “though” it), which forms the reality we see and experience as a personal creation or expression (projection) of our paradigm.

All of life as external, outer elements, exist in a purely “potential state” of all the frequencies of the material world, as consciousness itself is universal, and all inclusive as infinite. Our mind, always vibrating at a specific frequency or range of vibration, reforms the outer reality of pure consciousness and infinite possibilities, by resonating with it. Through resonance, we activate or bring to the foreground (conceive of), what matches our vibration, while deactivating or returning to an inactive, passive state, what doesn’t match our vibration. In this way, we reformulate the outer elements by organizing them into the configuration of our mind’s pattern, enhancing and embellishing the selected features, and then interpret the active features to fit into our story about them, as our mental pattern or “theme” for creating reality. It’s not that we actually “create what we see” as an actual manifestation, but rather through a form of natural or unconscious choice as an activating mechanism. Whatever we activate with our attention, we give life to.

Just placing our attention on something, transforms it as a compliance to our frequency as a pattern, that forms a thematic reality, by turning on some aspects, while turning off others, determining what expresses and what doesn’t, following the same laws as DNA. How something appears outwardly is based on how it’s arranged inwardly by the mind of the individual. Whatever we place out attention on and think about, we transform to be “like” us, or of the same reality as a frequency. We infect (sympathetic induction) and effect (vibrate) everything just by thinking about it. All matter is impregnated and animated by the consciousness of the individual being directed and projected at it. Our consciousness enters into (resonates) the matter of the material world around us, and gives it the life it has as being of the same level and quality of consciousness. What’s being observed, and the mind doing the observing, are apart of the same event. The mind has the ability to reshape the material world to match its frequency by simply perceiving it through it’s model, and then shaping it further by continuing to think about it.

Our frequency as our personal consciousness, creates as an expression on three levels simultaneously, as we self-express through the very nature of our perception, we shape ourselves (create our self-image as our identity), other people (to be of the same nature as we are), and the “way the world is”, through the same pattern as a cohesive reality. We create our reality as a story we’re always in the process of telling ourselves about things, while simultaneously sensing ourselves through our own experiences, and becoming identified with them. In this way we’re always in the process of creating ourselves through an unconscious (automatic) level of self-expression, as resonating with the same vibratory pattern in everything else. Resonance takes place naturally and so we don’t realize what’s happening or why. We don’t fully realize how it is that we’re acting to create our own reality through purely energetic (spiritual) means as our conception of it. When we hear the comment that we all “manifest” our reality, we think it means we literally produce matter itself, rather than realizing we merely reformulate it by resonating with it, which changes how it appears.

sacred-grove-background-fractal-art-174698

Matter itself is void of its own consciousness, and acts as the receptor for consciousness, which enters into it (sympathetic induction) and alters it. Matter is the magnetic (feminine) aspect of consciousness, and attention as directed consciousness the electric or active (masculine) aspect. Attention directs an active quality of consciousness into matter, which acts as the receptor or vehicle for the active force, which gives matter it’s qualities and characteristics, which animate it. The active force reshapes it into the pattern of the frequency and changes how it appears in the mind perceiving it. In this way we never actually change matter itself in the permanent sense, but rather how it appears to us. The outer appearance of things is a direct reflection of the consciousness inhabiting it and holding it together as a cohesive and congruent reality, which is literally produced by the mind itself. Matter exists much like consciousness, in a neutral and universal state, and shape shifts according to the consciousness that impregnates it and the mind that perceives it.

In order to change reality or how things appear to us, we have to change our mind as our mental paradigm or vibratory frequency, which is what’s giving it the appearance it takes on. By changing our mind, we change reality itself, and see the same thing in a new way. The outer world remains the same, but we see something entirely different in it. Our activities don’t change, but the consciousness we employ while doing them changes, and thereby, we experience the same activities in a new and different way. To change the outer, we have to change the inner that’s shaping it. The same mind perceives the same reality continuously and consistently.

Personality, Identity, and Ego – Our Main Tools for Transformation

spacious

The personality, identity and ego have a tendency to be used intermittently, and their actual meaning can remain somewhat obscured or vague. This may be due to the fact that they “emerge out of each other” as a natural growth process of becoming. While our personality is related to our bodily consciousness or subconscious mind, and is developed in a completely unconscious (automatic) and spontaneous way in childhood, our identity naturally begins emerging out of or as an extension of our personality when we move into adolescence, and begin building a relationship with the outside world beyond our close knit family unit, and begin thinking for ourselves. As we begin problem solving and reasoning, and as we begin developing our sense of self by what roles we naturally take on and begin playing in group situations, we begin consciously developing our identity through the choices we make, what we’re willing to experiment with, and by how we feel when having certain kinds of experiences. Though in most spiritual scripture, the term “ego” is the same as “identity”, in our modern usage of the idea, the ego has become associated with forming our identity out of an association to purely material things, and is more accurately referred to as the “false ego” or “alter ego”.

 
Our personality gives us our basic characteristics and tendencies as natural behaviors and way of being in the general sense. These develop naturally as children based on the relationship we form with everything around us and how we’re stimulated through a cause and effect, action – reaction type of process. Once this initial stage of development has taken place, it sets the basis for the next stage of development to spontaneously emerge and begin taking shape. As we form relationships with other people, activities, ideas, situations, and so on, more of our inner self is brought out and expressed by how we interact, what we say and do, what roles we begin naturally taking on, what parts we begin playing in a larger whole, and how we sense ourselves through our own experiences. Some ways of being we like, and so we develop them by moving deeper into them, others we don’t like, and so quit doing them while trying something else. Our teenage years are about experimenting with our ability to create ourselves, and as we approach and move into our twenties, our basic identity is in place as far as how and where we see ourselves, what roles and situations we naturally gravitate towards, and what relationships we natural form through resonance. As we create our experiences, we identify with them, and they serve to shape us in terms of our being.

 
This process of identification continues as we move through life, and the ego is naturally formed as an extension of our identity based on how we begin forming our identity around material aspects that we use to form our self image. As we dress a certain way, we feel a certain way, and form it as a part of our personal style. As we drive a certain type of car, we get a sense of ourselves by way of the car as an image we begin forming of ourselves. The house or apartment we live in is related to a certain neighborhood, social and economical status, racial group, etc., and fashions our self-image even further. As we move through life we’re steadily accumulating material possessions and playing certain roles that we continue to identify with and become the basis of “who we are” as an image we form of ourselves, and we become dependent on them. We enter into various relationships that bring out certain qualities in us, and make us consistently feel a certain way, and we sense ourselves by way of these feelings, and they continue to fashion us.

The-Knowledge-of-the-Planets-Cameron-Gray

This aspect of our identity built out of material possessions and our desire to acquire more, or the need to begin exercising control over others through the status we achieve by way of material possessions, forms what is typically referred to as the ego. The ego is a false identity and self-image that produces a false reality that becomes a delusion, because it’s temporary, always subject to changing, and can be taken away or lost, which would cast us head on into a full fledged identity crisis. We wouldn’t know who we are or what to do without them. It would lead us grasping desperately for any form of security we could find. We would be out of our element, in a brand new position and situation with no memory to fall back on, and no longer possess any real form of power and control. When we identify with the material world, we bond ourselves to the material plane, and become “mortal” in nature in the sense that our “self” dies with the body, and our soul seeks life in another body in order to continue living.

 
In most spiritual traditions the term “identity” and “ego” are considered synonymous, and have essentially the same meaning. Our identity is the faculty we use to function and operate in the outside world as the roles we naturally play. It’s only within Christian or religious applications that we find ideas of “killing or destroying” the ego. In spiritual traditions, every part of the whole is a valuable and necessary part, and plays a key role in the overall development of the soul within the body. Every aspect of being plays a specific role in our whole being. You can’t kill or destroy any one part, without simultaneously destroying or disrupting all parts. The idea around the ego as identification with the body and material world is to “transform” it. We can transform it through intentional use of our mind and what we choose to identify with. Whatever we identify with we align ourselves with and draw on as our basic source of power – our inner self or true being – or an outer source by identifying with material possessions that we use to create an image of ourselves in place of who we really are. We use this false image to present ourselves as being important and superior somehow, not through our “actual” character void of material attachments, but by flaunting and over valuing our material wealth.

 
To transform the ego is to change what we associate and identify with. If we choose instead to identify with our Higher Self, the spiritual world or God, then we move into being one with our true identity that always comes from within and is based solely on “who and how” we’re being in any moment. It doesn’t rely on attachments to the material world, and is a source of strength that we possess no matter what our outer circumstances are. We begin operating out of our center of being in terms of our true nature, which remains consistent and is available to us all the time, and can never be taken away from us by another, unless of course, we allow them to. By always drawing on our inner source of invisible powers, we become associated with our spiritual essence, and nourish our immortal self, which transcends the death of the body and remains intact in the invisible realms of the spiritual plane.

The-NeverEnding-Dreamer-Cameron-Gray

The secret of our ego / identity is that whatever we associate with, we become like in nature. By associating and identifying with something, we move into it and merge with it, embody the same qualities, and take them on by expressing out of them, creating our experiences of ourselves, and shaping ourselves by way of them. We alter our vibratory frequency by working directly with our identity. Whatever identity we employ and exist out of, determine how we’re being in every moment and what type of story we act to naturally tell. Our identity is our character which forms all of our behavior, and how we enter into relationship with everything else. When we’re getting our identity from outside means, we’re always in the process of trying to control and manipulate them. We form strong attachments to outcomes and how others need to be in order for us to be okay. We’re literally being controlled by the very thing we seek to control. When we shift that mentality, and draw only on an inner source of being, it doesn’t matter what others do, and we have no need to quest after power, because we already possess it.

 
To identify with our Higher-Self is to focus our attention on “states of being” as qualities of consciousness. We embody and become those qualities and express through them to create in the world by how we enter into a new kind of relationship with it, and act therefore to directly influence it. Instead of saying that when I dress a certain way I feel confident, you become confident as a way of being regardless of how you’re dressed. You ask yourself, what does it mean to be confident, how would I feel if I was confident, and how would I act? What would my posture be? How would I think and talk? You develop the idea of what you’d have to be and do to “appear” confident. You then model those behaviors, practicing being that way, which makes you feel that way. If you continue to intentionally model being confident, by pretending to be, it starts becoming natural and not only acts to completely transform how you think and feel, but how you act naturally to influence other people by how it changes your “cause and effect” relationship as a natural interaction that takes place between you. In this way you cultivate that quality within you and it becomes a natural part of you. As you begin feeling, thinking, and being confident in all areas of your life, it transforms your identity by how you sense yourself and what kind of person you are. Whatever you allow to express through you, you become the same as.

 
When we develop ourselves by cultivating inner qualities we synthesize them into our being, and they remain a part of our eternal self. The quality of consciousness we possess creates the nature of our experiences which become the memory that makes up our soul. Our soul is built up and developed by the memories it acquires through the experiences of the body. At the death of the body and the material possessions we acquired, only what is an essential part of ourselves are carried forward and maintained. Our sense of self based on our body and our position and possessions, dies with the body. By identifying with the material world, we resonate with it, maintain a strong connection to it, and fail to ascend. Because we bond with our material identity, we continue to reincarnate on the lower planes of the Earth, and fail to utilize the power of our material existence to grow ourselves internally by consciously developing our character to a virtuous state and a higher level of vibration. When we identify with the spiritual plane, we form ourselves to be like it in consciousness, resonate and bond with it, and naturally ascend to it after we shed our material existence.

The Transformative Power of Relationships

cycles
As we move through life, we’re always in the process of exchanging consciousness with everything around us. Just as we breathe and take in the air around us, using the molecules attained from it to replenish depleted molecules in our body, and rebuild our body by incorporating them into our molecular structure, we’re also taking in and exchanging consciousness with everything around us through resonance. We experience this exchange of energy as feelings in the indirect sense of just being around something, and as a direct stimulus when an actual interaction takes place. As we interact with someone, they directly stimulate us, and us them. This stimulating effect comes from what’s being activated between us, and brought out in us through the nature of the interaction. Certain qualities as a mood, attitude, and characteristics are called forth by what ever is being demonstrated, and then shaped into a greater pattern as a behavioral dynamic through the nature of the interaction itself as a cause and affect or action and reaction type of drama. We can only form an actual relationship with those who share the same qualities and characteristics as we do and who are conditioned to tell a similar type of story, necessary for the interaction itself, which begins co-creating a specific type of story-line as an ongoing interaction.

 
The people and situations we surround ourselves with, whether intentionally or unintentionally, become the building blocks of our consciousness. They act to transform us by taking on and making active within us whatever qualities we share in common. As these inner qualities are brought into an active state, they’re developed in us through the overall pattern as a dynamic being acted out, and they’re strengthened in us. We are then conditioned to the dynamic itself, and as we experience it we acquire memory of it, which serves as our basic mental and emotional programming. Whatever we have memory of we act out unconsciously in an automatic and natural fashion. As we co-create experiences by playing out certain dynamics, the memory of those experiences adjust and modify our paradigm to include them, and they become a part of our essential being.

 
This transformative quality of our relationships works for good or for bad. They either act to bring out the best in us, or they bring out the worst in us. We either like who we become when we’re with them, or we don’t like who and how we become. They make us feel a certain way, and that feeling is consistent whenever we’re with them. While we experience a range of emotions and feelings when we’re with them through various activities, the overall feeling that takes place forms a theme which remains constant throughout the relationship. The theme of how we feel is produced by the dynamic the relationship takes on. We can feel a deep connection that’s intimate and immediate, where we are valued, appreciated, wanted, desired, and we truly feel love; or we can feel used, not good enough, deceived or betrayed, humiliated, disappointed, where love is replaced by a series of toxic emotions that are painful and only act to reduce us somehow. You can tell pretty early in the interaction what it’s going to be if you’re willing to pay attention and honor your feelings.

heart to heart

The key to mastering your relationships by seeing them as powerful “self-development tools”, is to remain present in your experiences, and always notice how you’re feeling, and how they’re being. Always remember feelings don’t lie, it’s only the outer appearance of things, or what we start telling ourselves about what’s going on as a means of justifying or denying it that can be deceptive. Words or what people say and do that are clashing with how you’re feeling are the illusion. This idea isn’t about right and wrong, feeling guilt or shame, or placing blame on the other person, it’s simply about recognizing with clarity that what they’re doing and how they’re being with you, causes you to feel a certain way. This feeling inside of you in response to them is what they will continue to bring out in you throughout the entire relationship. The feeling, not the outer behavior, is what sets the pace for the relationship and the theme it takes on by the dynamic that starts playing out.

 
Even when you realize that the feeling you have is about your own “issue”, because of how you were raised, also realize that this relationship is about that same dynamic and will only continue developing that feeling in you, and was more than likely formed because it was about creating more of that same issue, and will continue to be. The feeling and dynamics are a congruent component of a larger pattern, and one acts to stimulate and produce the other. The idea here becomes healing yourself of your “issues” before you get into a relationship. That way you know that the attraction wasn’t based on the shared issue, and you’ll attract and be attracted to a different kind of person who won’t serve to act out the dynamic of the issue with you, simply strengthening it and giving you more of it.

The key to understanding comes through self awareness and realization. Devote yourself to becoming aware of your own issues and tendencies as “themes” you were conditioned with, and the behaviors you’ve acquired by way of them. Begin recognizing the tendencies you’ve developed that may be making the other person feel the same way as you feel when they simply respond to you in a like manner. For example, if your tendency is to not feel wanted and included in activities, that you act as if it’s an actual fact, may cause you to behave in ways that are stand-offish, distant, cold, or uninterested, that cause the other person to feel unwanted and excluded by you. They then react to you in a like manner and behave in a way that causes you to feel “unwanted and not apart of things”. We build behaviors around our issues as a way of defending or protecting ourselves against them that serve to actually produce them. Self-reflect and gain as much insight as you can into your own feelings and issues, and work on yourself to heal those issues before you look to get into a romantic and intimate relationship.

 
Cultivate in yourself the ability to stay aware of how you’re feeling in any given moment, based on an interaction of some sort. Notice what you’re feeling inside, what part of you it’s appealing to and bringing out, and who you start becoming because of the interaction. What persona do you take on? This shows you what the relationship will naturally strengthen and develop in you. If you simply “hold a feeling”, move into it and become fully present in it, and begin reflecting on it, what you’ll notice is that a whole idea begins playing out in your mind like a memory that’s inherent in the feeling. Regardless of how it plays out in terms of the scenario it presents itself through, the theme or main idea it illustrates is what’s showing you the reality inherent in the feeling. Feelings are an internal response to an outer reality as the experience of it. A inner feeling is always associated to an outer reality. The same types of events give us the same type of feelings. When you see into your feelings, you get a preview of the type of realities they produce, that will only act to give you more of the same feeling. It exists as a kind of circuitry as an inflow and outflow that’s constantly harmonizing and equalizing the inner with the outer.

energy exchange
As you recognize how you’re feeling with someone, don’t get caught up in feeling bad about what you’re realizing, or making them bad or wrong somehow, where you start compromising your feelings or distorting them through a story you tell about them that makes them mean something, simply observe them in an objective manner “as” they are, and honor them as showing you the truth in a situation. Your inner feelings will always show you in very direct terms the true nature of any situation. It comes through resonance as an energetic interaction, and is neutral in nature. It only becomes subjective and distorted when you begin interpreting it to make it mean something. The interpretation and meaning is the illusion we build around things that prevents us from seeing the truth. The truth doesn’t come with a story attached to it, but as a direct and immediate inner stimulation that makes you feel a certain way. Honor that, and you’ll always be working with the true reality of any relationship or situation.

What is the “Mind?”

souls_sphere_

There’s a tendency to refer to what we call the mind as being equivalent to the brain, or the heart, or some invisible undefined term that encompasses them both. If we look at the mind through the concept of Spiritual Sciences and the Quantum model of Subtle energy, we can realize the mind as an energy field that exists in a hierarchical form as smaller, individual minds that accompany all conscious sentient beings while expanding in range and magnitude to larger mind-fields that can reach universal proportions. It’s a series of mind-fields that are nested within greater fields, which like holograms, while varying in size and magnitude, are all of the same nature and operate according to the same sets of creative Laws.

 

The mind of the individual is the energy field that surrounds and envelopes the body in an egg-like essence that we commonly call the aura or electromagnetic field that’s imbued with distinct attributes and qualities that determine how the mind functions at an individual level. It’s the essence as what we refer to as electrified plasma as resonance that informs and animates the body, imbuing it with analogous characteristics referred to as the personality, which becomes the foundation for the identity it takes on through various levels of story-telling birthed as a natural evolutionary growth process. It develops and “becomes” in stages that are the enactment and development of different inherent aspects of the same essence in a sequential manner that first establishes the foundation out of which a spontaneous growth process as actualization takes place of its own volition.

Dreaming

All of life operates as Laws that evolve through a consistent growth process of becoming fully actualized. This natural growth process is a form of unfolding in a hierarchical fashion, where one phase sets the basis out of which the next is indicated and spontaneously emerges in what seems like an effortless movement. The lower (initial) is the foundation for the higher. Just as our childhood development determines the type of adults we become. They are dependent on each other and operate independently of each other in an interdependent fashion. These planes of existence as hierarchies are referred to as kingdoms or worlds, whole planes nested within greater planes as a unified reality that are ecological. Different aspects that perform different functions yet are of the same entity as a whole interdependent system that expresses by generating a coherent reality.

 

While we can separate and analyze each aspect in order to understand the laws that govern their operation, we must always perceive it in synthesis as being a fundamental part of a holistic operation. Each part has a specialization that’s a crucial part of a whole function. It operates as parts or aspects within a greater mind, just as the individual mind operates as parts of the greater family/group mind, community mind, national/cultural mind, and ultimately universal mind.

3 selves

So the mind as viewed from the perspective of Spiritual Sciences as Subtle energy, can be thought of as individual consciousness that is self-aware, self-expressing, and self-creating all at the same time. A single thought process or act creates in a ripple fashion of expanding and including greater mind-fields, which serves to reinterpret them according to the same mind which perceives them to be of the same nature and likeness in terms of projecting our qualities, characteristics, preferences and tendencies onto them, seeing (perceiving) in them only what matches (forms correspondences) us in terms of our paradigm or vibratory frequency.

 

Our mind is a conscious field of energy as our ‘self’ that’s also the perceptual lens we look through in order to perceive everything else. Qualities and characteristics in another that are of the same nature as ours, form resonance with us, causing a reaction of some sort that stimulates us inwardly. They stand out as what we notice, give attention to, and reshape by thinking about them to form a perception of them that’s actually a correspondence to us. The creative ability of the mind is to regenerate itself as a basic means of expression. Perception itself is a form of interpretation that modifies everything as a vibrational match to ourselves in terms of perceiving them through our mental/emotional filters that conforms them to our dominant tendencies as thematic dynamics or prevalent and ongoing story-lines that we mold them into in a way that makes sense. The story we tell about them is the translation that reforms them to be like us in some way. We only see in others what first exists in us, in what is often a hidden or unknown aspect of ourselves.

Torus shape

Just as the Universal mind exists in a multitude of fragmentation’s as fractal patterns that are smaller minds of the same nature, our own mind exist in three basic aspects that have specialized functions known as the higher-self, the subconscious and conscious mind. The Higher-self is the greater mind-field which transcends into higher-dimensions of pure consciousness, while the subconscious is the body/instinctual (heart) consciousness, and the conscious mind is the brain/sensory consciousness. The Higher-self is what we commonly call the spirit-soul, the subconscious our basic personality, and the brain the creative function that forms self-awareness through it’s identity with the external world that ultimately births the ego as a result, which is the aspect of our identity that’s based on the physical realm of possessions and position, that are ultimately false in nature because they are dependent on external means in order to create a image of itself in relationship with it that are temporary and illusory in nature. All aspects of the mind form a step-down process of conscious energy creating experiences of itself in the physical realm. It’s our inner nature that forms our personality that automatically expresses through our behavior, while the conscious mind creates illusions of itself that often tell a different story from the one that they naturally demonstrate through automatic behavior that they are seemingly unaware of, and therefore assume others are fooled by the same false image that they have created as a means of re-representing themselves to be what they wish they were, instead of what they actually are. They then make the basic assumption that others perceive their false image as well, when in reality, others are only seeing what matches their paradigm as their perceptual lens or the actual behavior a person demonstrates on an ongoing basis.

Likewise, each vital organ within the body generates an electromagnetic field that has its own level of consciousness and associated functions, which operate as a part of a greater whole. Every single entity pairs off in dual aspects that mimic the electro-magnetic effect of mitosis as regeneration that multiplies in pairs of itself. The mind operates according to the same natural laws that govern all living systems. Duality and multiplicity is the fundamental nature of unity. Just as the body is comprised of billions of cells that all contain the same DNA for structuring and functions, that begin as one then divide and multiply in pairs, while migrating to different locations playing out different roles within the same body which operates as a greater single entity that’s an enclosed system.

 

Our primary consciousness doesn’t perceive the individual cells that make up our body, but only perceives itself as a whole body with a personality and identity that always perceives the world in terms of stories that play out in its mind and imagination and the feeling sensations that stimulate it from within as bodily sensations that form corresponding thoughts and emotions as a result. There’s a constant chain-reaction as a chain-of-association going on all the time, all prompted by an electrical impulse of some sort that comes from invisible forces that surround and interact with us on a constant and ongoing basis. Which ones influence us in lesser or greater proportions are based on the quality of consciousness which forms an equivalent as a vibratory frequency that not only tunes us into the thoughts and emotions prevalent on that plane that are of the same nature, but also determine what we form resonance with as the fundamental component for forming thematic realities that are of a congruent nature. Our energetic frequency as our mind-field determines what we notice in the objective outer world, where we place our attention, and how we reinterpret it as a means of using it as the basic components for telling the same type of stories that we always tell about others and the external world as an expression of our selves.

Reality in itself as objective, is a perception and projection of the larger Universal mind (original creation), while our subjective reality is a personal creation of our own making that creates our ‘self’ as an expression of ourselves. All perception is ultimately a form of fundamental projection that restructures it through vibratory resonance that shapes it into a new pattern as a variation that’s a co-creation of us, the individual mind, with the greater, universal mind, forming a unified realty that’s unique to us as created by us. The Universal as absolute remains the same and is neutral in nature, allowing us the ability to co-create a separate reality by how we infuse it with meaning of some sort that shapes it into a story of some kind. That story is our signature and is always composed as a reflection of our inherent style. It always has the same theme and style of story-telling, not only in terms of the story itself, but also in terms of ‘how’ we tell it.
