Learning how to Work with the Subtle Body

Working with what we refer to as the subtle body in an intelligent and effective way can be difficult in the most basic sense, because, like the mind that produces it, it’s invisible to the physical senses and operates according to complementary laws. The most fundamental universal law that provides us with instruction on how to use our mind to regulate and transform our body and material world, is the Law of the Tetrad, or Tetragrammaton, which is also referred to as the “4 letter name of God”, with God being the universal laws of creation as the Mind. One of the most basic things that tend to hinder our progress in perceiving the higher worlds is that we tend to get hung up on the forms themselves, rather than recognizing the mind that’s creating them.

 The subtle body is also commonly referred to as the “light body”, the “etheric double”, the “astral body”, and the “Holy Ghost”, which are all describing the same invisible phenomenon. Our light body is our energetic body that accompanies our physical body and is what forms the spatial template or etheric blueprint that’s used for “informing” and regulating the material body, giving it Life. The etheric blueprint acts as an “organizational mechanism” for shaping astral light into the archetypal pattern formed in the mind of the soul, and is the “mental aspect” of the “mind-body” equation of a multi-dimensional Being. The etheric body is archetypal in nature, and serves as a universal, symbolic or metaphorical idea that has an overall theme inherent in it that allows it to be adapted to an infinite number of correlating ideas, and modified to form an equally infinite number of possibilities that still hold true to the overall theme itself.

What we refer to as the “mind and soul” is 3-fold in nature, which means it has 3 different aspects that perform different functions and play a different part in creating the same thing. The primary law governing the mind is called the “3 in 1 Law”, the Triad, or the Trinity. These are also called the higher or super conscious, subconscious, and self-conscious aspects of the same mind. On the material plane where the mind and soul inhabit a physical body, there are 2 primary aspects of the mind functioning to create reality as complementary opposites known as the subconscious and conscious mind. The conscious mind, which is the one we’re aware of and normally think of as the mind, is actually the offspring of the subconscious and is born fully within the material body and becomes totally identified with it as a result.

Our subconscious mind is the real powerhouse of the two, and it’s by working directly with our subconscious that all change, learning, and transformation takes place. Our subconscious, however, is what we can think of as ‘passive and receptive’ and works to shape reality (through our perception of it) through suggestion given to it by the self-conscious mind, and operates in an automated fashion using ‘memory’. The subconscious works by way of symbols and metaphors, and any idea formed in the mind isn’t literal as a specific idea or situation, but provides a kind of thematic idea that can be applied to any number of circumstances to produce a similar “experience” of reality. All reality, which is organized light, is produced by the Soul through the mind as a basic form of self-expression, creation, and as a means of “experiencing itself” through its own creation. What this means is that the etheric blueprint used for organizing the material world is formed by thought that seeds the imagination where it’s converted into symbolic images that are used as the means for creating physical equivalents.

An archetype is a universal idea that serves as a prototype or thematic template for creating personal experiences of the same type. As we experience a particular rose, for example, we don’t form a memory out of that specific rose, but convert it instead to represent “roses in general”. It’s transformed into a ‘universal idea’ that serves to represent all roses as an “experience”. Memories that we form out of specific events serve the same purpose. They become symbolic ideas that have a general theme to them that we continue to use as a means of applying them to numerous situations of a similar nature to create the same type of experience over and over. Each time it’s applied to a new situation, it’s adapted and modified to produce a new version of the same basic idea. All memories are formed as “internal representations” that are used as a means of navigating and maneuvering the material world, and as a means for forming instant interpretations of any situation necessary to make ongoing decisions. Our internal representations also form our intention and expectations, which are the ordering principle of the mind.

The subtle body is a symbolic template as the soul’s memory that’s an “idea” and NOT the form itself. It’s what shapes the idea that’s translated into the physical body as a mirror image or twin. It’s comprised of ‘thought-forms’ which shapes light into archetypal forms while “magnetizing” it, causing it to begin vibrating. It’s the invisible forces of the mind that set-up a “field of organized information” as electromagnetic stresses that organize essence into an idea as a “thought-form” that operates on multiple scales and levels simultaneously to produce the physical body, outer reality of the body, and experience to all be of the same nature. It serves as a living idea “within” the mind of its creator. All thought, feeling sensation, memory, and new ideas are formed through the faculty of the imagination as the organizing principle of the mind. As we think and emote, we create. Our reality and the nature of our experiences result from our thoughts. Thoughts are in fact “things”. They’re living entities administered through our soul as its ability to self-create. As we think, we perceive the reality of our thoughts, and we request, call forth, and literally act to program our subconscious to produce the reality of our thoughts.

Hierarchy of Universal Laws

While most of us have been taught that only “things” form vibration as an energetic frequency, and that thoughts shaped in the mind have no real power to create, and exist as more of a fantasy, the exact opposite is actually the truth. Matter itself is actually devoid of intelligence and only acts to draw in and house the consciousness of the soul. It’s the mind as the vehicle of the soul that permeates, inhabits, and is magnetically bonded with the body as its Life. The minerals and chemical compounds of the Earth do not have the ability to organize themselves into a pattern as a biological life-form. All Life is the result of a field of organized information. The more intelligent, diversified, and sophisticated the form, the more organized the information that not only forms it and holds it together, but also animates it. All living biological forms have a soul. The subtle body isn’t the soul itself, but is the creation of the soul as a thought about itself.

This process, as pointed out earlier is represented by the Law of the Tetrad, which is the primary law of all creation. The Monad, which is an organized field of information (soul), regenerates itself as a mirror image or outward projection, forming the Dyad as a relationship it forms with “itself” through the illusion of “another”. It forms a thought about itself as a “idea” that provides the etheric blueprint as a metaphor that’s “looked through” (perceptual lens) and reflected outward as a mirror image to produce the appearance of an outer reality of the same nature and kind. Thought as an idea that’s turned into reality in the imagination literally acts to seed and program our subconscious mind by giving it a pattern as a “command and directive” for creating as the outer analogy of the inner idea.

We work with our subtle body by working with our own mind, using the conscious aspect to direct and inform the unconscious aspect. This same principle works in the general sense through our ability to naturally form internal representations and concepts by consistently replaying “memories” in our mind. As we remember something by calling it forward and contemplating it, reliving it as an actual experience, we are in fact acting “on ourselves” to program ourselves by saying to our own subconscious . . . here, give me more of this. Our memories and mental impressions act to form our perceptual lens and filtering system, which is a further demonstration of the organizing principle of the mind in its natural ability to take the information inherent in any situation and abstract some while ignoring others, and reforming it into a new idea as the reality of its intentions and expectations based on memory of some kind.

The subtle body is the “thought body” formed and transformed through the faculty of our imagination. It’s the invisible body of light, which, like the mind itself, is only “knowable” through thought. The soul is comprised of ideas as memory that’s constantly evolving and morphing into new variations based on how we enter into relationship with various ideas and aspects of ourselves in everything else. To work with the etheric blueprint of our soul’s imagination, we have to work with our thoughts and shape them into symbolic ideas that we use to direct our subconscious mind on what to create. We have to create the idea as an “actual experience” that produces a kind of virtual memory of an actual event.

When we act to automatically take in a suggestion as an idea being given to us by another, and we begin thinking about it, we turn it into a detailed reality in our mind’s eye and it becomes a self-induced program for producing as an outer, physical experience. The DNA of our body, which is an extension of our subconscious or body consciousness, is literally programmed through our “perceptions” which are formed out of our memories. As we program our subconscious we’re simultaneously programming our DNA, which manifests that same idea as a physical condition.

DNA, like the very cells they act to “inform”, is comprised of both etheric (invisible) and material (visible) substance, and provides a kind of bridge as a transducer between them. We have a direct line of communication with our molecular structure through the very nature of our thoughts, emotions, and intentions. Whatever we accept and embrace as a “belief” we act to literally create as a reality. This fact is demonstrated repeatedly through what we call the “placebo effect”. Just as our own subconscious programs the DNA of our body, it acts equally to influence the DNA inherent in everything else (we all share the same DNA), and over an extended period of time can literally reshape our environment through our perception of it.

Once we have a working understanding of how our mind works to produce our subtle body as our “thought body”, we have the basic principles and means necessary to work with it in a deliberate and calculated manner in order to create. In order to understand how to work by way of Laws that govern all creation, we have to understand how they work together in a unified manner. All laws operate as a kind of “growth process” or “inward unfolding” where one lays the foundation out of which the next one spontaneously emerges and evolves out of the preceding one while containing the “potential” of what proceeds and issues forth naturally out of it. Laws work by way of natural processes as growth and development of an idea. All creation comes as a synchronized series of realizations and correlating events that are a fundamental part of a greater whole. The part is always comprised of the same information as the whole and is reconfigured in a way that differentiates it to perform a specialized function within the whole (holographic principle).

Summary:

We are working to form our subtle body all the time through our imaginary and emotionally intense thoughts. As we think and emote, we’re literally programming ourselves to produce a corresponding reality of our thoughts. We’re integrating new information as experiences to form new types of memory that literally restructures our subtle body to produce a correlating physical condition. All manifestations within our body come as a form of inner programming that unfolds according to a timescale. To heal or transform our body requires us to heal psychologically and transform the very nature of our thoughts and perceptions.

This is done through the faculty of the imagination through hypnotic suggestion and guided meditation. We have to completely relax our body, empty our mind of the redundant meaningless chatter, and consciously introduce an idea as a sensory intense reality, then concentrate on it, developing it into vivid detail. Once we get it the way we want it, and it naturally elicits positive emotions in response to it, we replay it over and over until it plays out in an automatic fashion. We then create internal dialogue around it, just like we do when thinking about any idea or memory, which gives the subconscious further instructions on the type of experience we want. The more real we make it and the more intensely we experience the emotion associated with it, the quicker it manifests as both a physical condition and outer experience of reality.

How to Consciously work with Subtle Energy

In order to work with an idea at the practical level we have to form a working concept of it that serves to illustrate the laws involved as a relationship and the natural processes that ensue from it. Subtle energy is not a “thing”, but rather the invisible forces that are drawn into living organisms as its consciousness. Our physical body is a magnet for absorbing energy around us while simultaneously projecting and transmitting it. Subtle energy is a form of primal consciousness that has natural attributes and qualities inherent in it that form the physical characteristics and natural behaviors the form takes on and outwardly displays.

We’re always in the process of exchanging consciousness as subtle energy with everything around us as a primary means of adapting to and becoming one with the very environment we exist in. The acquisition, integration, adaptation and modification of consciousness, comes through a basic form of energetic respiration. When we reside in a primarily unconscious state, we absorb energies from the space around us that act to influence us mentally and emotionally without our direct awareness. This phenomenon is usually experienced as a shift in our mood and how we feel, often without realizing what’s causing it. As our mood changes so do what we focus on, think about, and what behaviors we naturally display.

Everything in the phenomenal world can easily be influenced, directed, and modified by working in harmony with the universal laws governing them. All subtle energy, which is invisible and non-material in nature, is directed and manipulated through mental means. Whatever plane something exists on, we have to work on that same plane or a higher one in order to influence, direct, and utilize it. We don’t ever need a material device, talisman, or symbol in order to work with energy, because these only have the power we give them with our mind as our intention and reason for using them. Inanimate objects don’t contain power in and of themselves, but are infused with power through “magnetism”. These tools merely act as an aid for focusing our attention on an idea as a means of concentration.  In order to work with our own mind as an energy system, we have to look at what we mean by both the mind and subtle energy.

The Nature of the Mind

Our mind is not of our physical body as our brain or heart (or anything else) but is the essence as the energy field that surrounds, envelopes, and permeates the body while extending quite some distance from it in subtler and less dense forms. The material body is magnetic in nature (passive and receptive) and only acts to draw in and serve as a container for the consciousness that it resonates with. The mind is synonymous with the soul and is the primary means for self-creating and regulating the vehicle of the body. The mind, like the soul and reality, is threefold in nature, which means it has three complementary aspects that function in different ways and on parallel planes to create what we experience as a unified, coherent whole.

The three aspects of the mind are most often referred to as the Higher or Super-conscious (will), and the subconscious (sensational) and self-conscious (formative) mind. The Super-conscious exists on a higher plane (as an invisible power), and the other two aspects of the same mind exist on the material plane as complementary opposites. The subconscious is the aspect of the mind we share with all of Nature due to the fact that we incarnate into this plane through a mammalian body that’s an integral part of the collective unconscious that also forms the “mass consciousness” of humanity. The subconscious is constantly involved in an energetic exchange as a form of telepathic communication with everything around it that’s of the same or similar nature to it (through resonance).

The subconscious is motivated by emotions that are designed to produce unconscious (automatic) behavior as a form of instinct. The subconscious is also what produces material images in the imagination that serve as a kind of “empty shell” (ethereal body) necessary for energy to inhabit and give life to as a means of expressing through. Just as electricity exists as an invisible force in the atmosphere around us, and can only be harnessed (captured) and directed through a material form of some kind, subtle energy can only be harnessed and directed by utilizing a material light-form as a fluid container that’s shaped inwardly by the mind. Once shaped inwardly it becomes a metaphorical template used to produce and equivalent outer reality.

All material substance as light-essence concentrated into an organized material form is magnetic in nature and acts to “draw in” the active, life-giving force of archetypal intelligence. Whatever form is shaped internally as a structured thought, determines what type of energy it acts as a vehicle and instrument for. As subtle energy inhabits and expresses through a complementary physical form it produces an equivalent outer effect as the reality of the form. We can work directly with our subconscious by mastering the principles that govern it. We imagine a “form” as an internal representation or working concept that becomes a magnet and acts to “draw in” and harness subtle energy that can then be directed to perform a function of some kind as the fulfillment of our “intention”. We then infuse this imagined image with an emotion of some kind (motive), it acts to either attract energies of a like nature, or repel energies of a dissimilar nature.

The subtle energy of the material plane is invisible to our physical senses and is known to us directly as feelings, inner sensations, and emotions that give rise to mental impressions when allowed to take hold in our imagination. Whatever is “received” and pictured in our subconscious is simultaneously projected into our outer mental sphere where it can be “witnessed” by our self-conscious mind as a form of thought or idea. The subconscious acts to translate energy as a vibratory frequency into the pattern and image inherent in the vibration (transducer). All vibration as activity organizes essence (light) into the pattern as a living form inherent in the frequency on different scales and levels simultaneously as both an inner and outer reality of the same nature and likeness.

When we “sense” the energy that’s being actively expressed by someone, we get a feel for their consciousness as an emotional state and the unconscious activity that’s naturally produced by it. Their energy is drawn into our body where it acts to stimulate us with sensations of a distinct quality, which makes us feel a certain way. People with “bad energy” are usually consumed with negative emotions that serve to drive their thoughts and behaviors to produce the experience of their emotions as an actual outer experience. When we’re around them and involved in an interaction of some kind, we exchange energy subliminally and it causes us to feel bad in the same way (transference). Subtle energy is both electric (projects) and magnetic (draws inward), and works through the principle of vibration and polarity that forms corresponding, complementary realities as a unification between the inner and outer, and between the self and another.   

Developing a Working Model of how Energy Operates Subliminally

By developing a working concept in our mind of how subtle energy works we can simultaneously develop methods for working with it in the practical sense. Whatever state we’re in, we vibrate at as a frequency, and act to vibrate that same state in everyone and everything around us. As we resonate with “like energies” in others as a shared emotional state, our energy “enters into” their mental sphere that permeates their body, and activates those same emotions in them, bringing them to the surface where they’re actively expressed to produce a joint experience.

After only a few seconds of interacting, we both begin vibrating in harmony with each other and form a joint-reality as the expression of the shared emotions. In a like manner, whenever we’re around others, whatever emotional state they’re actively expressing is being radiated and projected into the space around them where it’s magnetically drawn into our mental sphere and then enters our body where it stimulates us with the same emotion and we begin outwardly displaying the same types of behavior. As we take on their emotions and allow them to begin actively expressing through us, it modifies our state into a complementary one where we begin feeling, thinking, and acting the same way. This all happens energetically as an unconscious and automatic process where we’re unknowingly allowing ourselves to be created and therefore determined by others.

The Method for Controlling your own Energy

The two most effective means that I’ve found for controlling and regulating your own energy as your state of mind, is by first setting the intention to do it while simultaneously realizing you can (believe), then either imagining a protective sphere around you that’s reflective and mirrors back energy to the sender, or that acts to neutralize the energy by polarizing yourself to it. Once you set an intention to become more aware of the energies operating around you that are unconsciously affecting you, and you form a working concept in your mind of “how” they’re operating to enter into and produce an effect in you, you can direct the energies through your awareness alone.

Imagine a sphere around you as an invisible globe that creates a form of translucent screen, where vibrations as emotional energy don’t penetrate the barrier, but spread out on its surface instead, much like a movie where you can “see” the nature of the energy by “witnessing” it. This will allow you to see both the inner and outer nature of it simultaneously without allowing it to enter into your body and produce an effect. By learning how to sense it from a distance while emotionally detached from it, we can “see it” as the reality it contains where we can consciously “decide” if we want to let it in or not.

By keeping it outside of your body and not letting it “effect you” by causing a reaction, you act to neutralize it. Whenever we don’t share in the emotions being projected, and we don’t serve as the means of becoming the “effect of a cause”, we act to “cancel it out”, and energetically subdue it. If we let it in and allow it take hold, and begin actively expressing the same emotions, then we serve to amplify and multiply it. As long as we remain unaware of what’s actually happening, we reside in an unconscious state and absorb energies automatically. As we unconsciously absorb the energies being projected by others, we allow our mental state and actions to be regulated by whomever we exist in near proximity of. We “lend our will” to creating whatever reality we’re being seeded with as an emotional charge.

Self-awareness and the ability to consciously operate your own mind is the “magical secret” to immortality. As long as we remain unaware of the nature of energy and how it operates in the natural world, we’re subject to automatic processes that we seem to have no control over. Once we become aware of them by creating a concept of how they work, we can begin working with them in a deliberate and precise manner. We can sense the quality of the energy being projected by someone by how it’s affecting us emotionally, and then intuitively discern it as a means of deciding whether to allow it to produce a like-effect in us, or to deflect it and send it back to them. This is all done by imagining it.

If we absorb and give life to the emotions being projected by others without realizing what we’re doing, we act to propagate them while allowing them to alter our state and determine our behavior. If we reflect them back by preventing them from entering us and don’t act as the means for expressing them, we serve to neutralize, disintegrate, and nullify them, while maintaining control over our own emotional state and actions. We learn how to become fully responsible for our own creation.

In a similar manner, we can notice how some people act to energize and enliven us, while others drain us and make us feel wiped out. The most natural way people drain us by “feeding off of our energy”, is through attention seeking that elicits sympathy. They behave in ways that are designed to give them attention, usually by complaining, whining, going on and on about their problems, criticizing and belittling others, acting helpless in their own life, or doing whatever it takes to get you to feel sorry for them. Sympathy is the most natural way we tie into other people’s energy and act to feed off of it.

It’s wise to always pay close attention to how you’re being mentally and emotionally affected by others and life-situations, and use that awareness to make your decisions regarding them. Where we tend to falter is when we take an attitude of attempting to somehow change the other person or situation, instead of working to change ourselves and our relationship with them. People who drain us, depress us, or stimulate us in undesirable ways by always trying to draw us into their dramas, can only do so if we let them by cooperating. It’s always up to us as to what relationships we enter into and continue to maintain, and what situations we choose to keep ourselves submerged in, and what activities we willingly participate in as a result. Self-awareness and skillful action is the secret to creating your life in an intentional and precise manner.

Thought Projection, Distant Healing, and Praying for Others

psychic   We have been trained through many traditional practices of various sorts, many of which are religious in nature, to “pray for others” when they’re experiencing crisis or hardship of some sort. We’re also taught to send positive thoughts their way through intention or visualization of some sort, which we ourselves consider “positive” – positive of course being a relative term designed to engage others with the person manifesting them – not necessarily to the person they’re being “sent to” or projected towards. Likewise, we are still imbued with the tendency to pray to some outside source or entity through which we imagine we draw power or are helped in some way. We’re taught to always look outside of ourselves “to” God or spiritual masters of some kind, which reside in some imaginary realm and are able to give us or bestow upon us what we ourselves can’t seem to muster up. Yet power itself only truly exists within us, and only comes into the world “through us”. It needs a physical vehicle in order to act. We’re only capable of utilizing powers that we ourselves are aligned with and are similar to in moral terms.   If we completely put the idea of karma aside, though it’s an “absolute law”, and look exclusively at the power of thought, we can further see how this idea of praying for another produces no real effect, except in us. Thoughts that are aroused in response to something, and formulated for the purpose of “directing them” towards someone else in an attempt to somehow “influence” their mind, and therefore alter their physical condition, produces no meaningful effect (in them) because it usually operates against law, and works through an attempt to violate choice and free will of the person the imagined thoughts are being directed towards. Thought itself is only “powerful” in terms of influence, when it’s sincere, concentrated on and built up over time, and if the person directing it has well developed will power. Thoughts, in order to be effective for another must be free of selfishness or any form of self-motivated agenda’s or personal beliefs (even of the most positive nature), and must be sustained through a consistent mindset. Very few people, especially in our modern day society of constant distraction and coercion, scattered mindset and blatant inability to concentrate for even a short time, our thoughts are not powerful, don’t travel very far, and are ineffectual. They dissolve almost as soon as they’re formed. telepathy-300x222 Thoughts, even when concentrated and absent of self-motivated ideas, can only be “received” by another person whose mind is in a passive and receptive state, and who is of the same will or consciousness (frequency) of the person sending them. As long as a mind is active and full of self-oriented thoughts and feelings, it can’t receive any thoughts and feelings being transmitted through the field from another. Most people have constant thoughts running through their mind and are not tuned into being able to “receive” ideas being transmitted. Especially those who are having problems or facing a crisis of some sort, in which their mind is probably being run almost exclusively on anxiety around the situation. Anytime a mind is in an active state, it can’t act as a receiver. It has to be relaxed, in a passive mode, and free of constant thoughts, and able to sympathize with the ideas available in the conscious field around them in order to take them in, hold them by fixating attention on them, and begin thinking about them until they become an internal reality as a possibility. Once a new possibility is realized, they have to “choose it” over the current reality, and bring it into fruition through willful action. None of us have the ability to violate the choice and free will of another, do their “healing for them”, or decide in what way they need to heal, and why.   Every life situation and circumstances are the product of karma. Karma is what we call the “absolute law”, and is basically the law of cause and effect in terms of self-creation through life experiences. While we form an idea of a soul being innocent or “undeserving” of whatever happens to them, an extension of “victim mentality” or the belief that the universe is basically unjust and picks on people for no reason, or that events are random and not interrelated, and there are no consequences to what we set into motion through our own thoughts and behaviors, when in reality, everything happens to us at the personal level of producing an impact or involving us directly in an idea, and comes as the result of our own actions or thoughts as a reciprocal correspondence to our actions. Because of the time lapse involved, we often fail to recognize it. We act to draw on ourselves the results of our own attitudes, beliefs and behaviors, where we are on the “receiving end”, and therefore experiencing the same idea from the opposite perspective, which comes as what we call a “life lesson” as a direct reflection that allows us to see and understand our own psychological make-up and what areas or in what way we are invested in errors of thinking and perceiving. waveslight Just as we are solely responsible for creating ourselves, we’re also solely responsible for healing ourselves (mentally, physically, emotionally, and morally), which only comes through self-realization of what we’ve done or are doing that’s causing it. We are both the cause and effect of our own life. We are truly self-determined in a purely unconscious sense. The only true form of helping another heal by gaining self-realization of their errors, is through compassion. To form compassion for another isn’t to feel sorry for them, or through empathy take on the same feelings and perspective, viewing life through their eyes, so to speak, but rather taking a position of “witnessing”, where we create a safe space (relinquish all judgment and al creative interaction) for them to self-reflect, and we serve to reflect back to them their own story about things without tainting or altering it through our emotions and mental paradigm, changing it to conform to our personal perception of them, and as a result, they’re able to “see it” by projecting it onto a neutral and nonreactive mindset. We’re only able to see our “own mind” by telling our story where it’s not being manipulated or altered by the perception and reaction of another.   When we “hold space” for another as a neutral and shared atmosphere, and we withhold all judgment and the tendency to view their life through our paradigm, where we modify what they experience to be the same as we would experience in that same situation, and interact by sympathizing or discussing it rationally, or by feeling the need to “correct them”, advise them, or somehow comfort them, we don’t act as a mirror, but instead begin projecting onto them our own opinions about them, and what we call “transference” takes place. When we’re able to keep our mind and energy separate from theirs, and not react emotionally to anything that they say, while formulating in our mind in an objective manner and simply understand what it was like for them from their perspective, without interacting in any way, we mirror their experience back to them in an unadulterated form, and they’re able to gain realization around it as a result.   Through this realization as self-awareness, they’re able to become aware of what they were previously unaware of, and see what’s been operating at an unconscious level within their own psyche. All healing comes only through self-awareness that brings self-realization. We can only work with and act on ourselves to change what we’re aware of and “know”. Through awareness we’re empowered with our ability to consciously choose and willfully implement the ideas gained from the realization. We bring forth what was previously in the dark, and we begin working consciously with the law of cause and effect, and transform ourselves according to our own thoughts, emotions, and actions.   Dr. Linda Gadbois     Integrative Health Consultant and Spiritual Mentor   Save

The Power of Focus and Attention – Learning how to Operate your Own Mind

Whatever we give Attention to, we bring to Life Inside of Us

wormholes

One of the primary principles of the mind is that “energy follows and flows into thought”. Whatever we focus our attention on and think about, we form an image of by imagining it.  As we think and imagine, we form an inner reality around an idea that brings it to life inside of us. This inner reality as a conceptualization forms an internal representation of an idea that’s created by the subconscious mind as a possible reality and creative template. The idea as an internal representation acts as a mental directive and set of instructions for the subconscious mind to use as a template for creating a correspondence as an actual outer reality or material manifestation. An idea is given to the subconscious mind much like a seed that it then grows and develops into a possible reality as an actual experience of the idea. The subconscious mind imagines the idea “as if” experiencing it, and creates a personalized version of the idea as it would occur naturally to it. This translation of a neutral idea into a personal experience creates the inward conditions necessary for the outward manifestation. In order to manifest something, we have to first create the “inner conditions” in which it would occur as a natural outer event. The inner conditions as a state produced by the imagined reality forms a vibrational frequency that the subconscious uses to connect with the elements in the outer environment that are of that same nature and organize them into an actual event that’s analogous to the internal representation.

 
Our imagination is what creates all of our experiences as an interpretation of sensory information that reforms it into an idea that correlates to the inner condition or state of mind perceiving it. We never see an idea as it exists a part from us, but rather as we remake it to be of the same nature as we are as a means of experiencing it. While we can safely say that the outer event itself is objective and neutral in nature, how we form an “experience” of the event is a personalized version. The conditions of the mind as its “state”, forms its vibratory frequency as a structuring (organizing) mechanism that reshapes (in the mind) all outer realities to match or be of the same “nature” (like) as the internal reality. The structure of our mind forms a model or paradigm, which is comprised of our memories, beliefs, values, preferences, temperament, disposition, attitude, and so on, all of which work together to interpret events through the very act of perceiving them, which personalizes (reshapes) them to fit into our story about things, giving us a consistent experience of reality that all falls into a generalized “theme” as a form of story-line.

 
Whatever we focus on, good or bad, want or not want, we picture in our mind as an experience of it, which sets the pattern as a frequency, which, when dwelled upon and thought about frequently, becomes a thought-form that eventually takes on a life of its own, and not only begins influencing our molecular structure, but begins forming an electromagnetic field of it’s own and begins attracting the means of its fulfillment in whatever corresponding elements are available in the immediate environment. We program our subconscious mind through imagined realities that have strong feelings and emotions attached to them as sensory stimulation that forms an emotional atmosphere around them. The imagined thought stimulates the nervous system and endocrine system, producing the equivalent chemistry of the idea as a simulation, which produces our emotional state that aligns our physical state with our mental state.

Our emotions always come as a natural response and by-product of our imagined thoughts, because our thoughts stimulate and produce the chemistry of our body, and alter our physical state to match our mental state. Once the physical state is produced as a thought and emotion, that emotional state is transmitted in and through the field governing the physical plane, stimulating everything within near proximity of it with the same emotions and attracting elements of that same shared state. Anything of the same “emotional state” can be used to create the idea associated with the state. The state and the idea that produced it are coherent and correlated and exist in a natural relationship with each other.

 
Our state, as a combination of a feeling, mental idea, and emotional chemistry, are magnetic (attractive) and become our “perceptual lens” that we look through that naturally sees all around us whatever matches or is complementary to our internal mental state. We don’t do this by changing or producing the elements themselves, but rather by how we experience them. We attract what’s of the same nature or idea by resonating with it. We stimulate and awaken that state in whatever person or object that shares the same qualities and a magnetic field is created as the shared vibration and we’re drawn to it, and it to us, or it stands out from everything else in our environment and we place our attention on it and begin consciously interacting with it. Through the conscious interaction itself we begin reorganizing it into the pattern of our thought by how we stimulate it, and we begin co-creating whatever idea served to form the union by what we share in common.

 
Whatever intention we have while focusing on an idea becomes the motivating factor behind that idea. If we attach a negative feeling to the idea, it becomes repulsive, yet still maintains its attractive factor. Likewise, if we associate a positive feeling to it, it becomes compelling, and we form a desire around it, also making it attractive. The idea itself, which exists independent of us as a neutral or universal idea, is attractive to both negative and positive associations, with the negative and positive simply representing our relationship with the idea that we’re attracting to us simply by focusing on it. While the positive (proton) charge, or negative (electron) charge may be used to polarize the idea, distinctly separating the positive from the negative, the neutron, or the neutral component as the idea itself which contains all potential of both the positive and negative aspects or feelings, remains attractive to both. So it’s not the positive or negative feeling associated to an idea that makes it attractive or repulsive, but simply paying attention to and thinking about the idea itself. Whatever we focus our attention on, good or bad, we magnetize and draw into our experience, whether it’s a positive experience or negative one. The feeling associated to the idea simply determines how we shape it in our mind and how we experience it, but we attract whatever we give our attention to and think about, regardless.

water is life

So, for example, the idea of “eating to prevent cancer” (the title of an article I recently read) forming our practice of eating around the idea of “cancer”, whether preventative or not, focuses our attention on the very thing we don’t want as the motive for organizing our eating habits, meaning that we’re acting to bring about the experience of cancer. The mind works by giving life to whatever we hold in our mind and think about. The mind doesn’t register “preventing cancer”, but has to picture or form the idea of cancer in order to know what to “not do”, while simultaneously associating diet with cancer. It doesn’t work by introducing a negative command, that says picture this, but don’t create it. As the mind pictures it and begins thinking about it, it begins creating it in the most basic sense as a form of command to the subconscious mind that also begins attracting it as well.

 
The pictures we form in our imagination by thinking about ideas, forms the creative template that sets our vibratory frequency. Instead of building our diet around the idea of preventing cancer, we should build it around the idea of creating health. We should focus on the idea of creating a healthy and active body by eating healthy food, knowing that in creating health, cancer won’t manifest! As we eat, focusing on the idea of taking care of ourselves and picturing vibrant health in our mind, while sensing and experiencing ourselves as being healthy, we instruct our subconscious to create a healthy body.

 
So always keep in mind, that the mind doesn’t work through negative commands or by associating positive or negative feelings and emotions to ideas, but rather creates whatever idea we hold in our mind and think about. Thoughts are shaped into thought-forms as an inner representation of the idea as an experience of it that provides the subconscious mind with the template necessary for creating it as a corresponding outer experience. Whatever we think about and the intention behind our thoughts that shape and motivate them, set the frequency we vibrate at that magnetizes and connects us to that same idea all around us. The mood or feeling we have, which nearly always determines what we’re thinking about and why we’re thinking about it, becomes our perceptual lens determining what we see in our ordinary situations and what stands out to us that matches our mood and is used to create more of the same type of feeling through how we experience things. By focusing on what we want to create and forming a positive intention around it, we work naturally by way of the laws that govern our mind to bring into our experience what we have a desire for that we then shape into a positive experience through the relationship we form with it as an outer equivalent of our inner feelings and thoughts.
