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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Practical Psychology

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

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

The Divine Paradox

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

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

Transformative Process

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

Summary

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

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

Spiritual DNA, the Soul’s Code, and the Subconscious Mind

 

As humans we have what we can think of as a three-fold nature as three minds operating in one body, which merely acts as the vehicle or instrument of the mind, which not only serves to operate the body, but is also what constructs it and gives it life. The three minds exist on multiple planes and correlate with three-dimensional reality of what we call the material world. The three minds, known as the higher or super-conscious, the lower or subconscious, and the conscious or self-conscious  minds, exist as a single unit or unified field as a vibratory frequency that has dual electromagnetic properties that are self-creating, self-perpetuating, and self-sustaining. The higher mind contains the two lower minds as inherent aspects of its dual nature, that all systematically emerge out of each other as a form of division that’s actually a form of regeneration, or in other words, one aspect births the other aspects as a form of growth process that undergoes a life cycle within the lower material realm.

The higher mind, which exists entirely on a higher parallel dimension in its whole state, descends into the lower material realm through a form of division, much like cellular mitosis which regenerates itself as a growth process while taking on specialized functions within a whole living organism. The higher mind or over-soul impregnates a living cell (embryo) with a form of blueprint as an etheric hologram that’s used for cellular specialization and spatial orientation in constructing the whole organism. This etheric holographic map serves to systematically organize the cellular growth of the living organism that is imbued with the same qualities and characteristics of the parents (higher mind-soul) that acted to create it by infusing an energetic code with Life-Force Energy, multiplying it and growing it out of nothing, through a process of self-regeneration.

The energetic code of the higher mind is a form of spiritual DNA as the soul’s code, and operates according to the same principles as the physical DNA, and together form a vehicle that’s of the same vibratory frequency or nature as the “soul-mind” that inhabits it through resonance and coherence. The soul attracts to and serves to give life to the body that’s of the same frequency, through a form of DNA match that’s comprised of various sorts of memory, which are compatible and ideally suited for each other. Just as our physical DNA has the memory and genetic code to structure the body, giving it distinct characteristics and tendencies, and carrying the memories of the ancestral bloodline, the soul is structured and comprised of memory from multiple lifetimes which are compatible to the ancestral memory of the body, and together, form a complementary and congruent experience of life as the “self”. All of life comes as a result of combinations, which through a process of natural selection (resonance) as dominant and recessive aspects of the same shared characteristics, form a new pattern or formula as a unique combination, which births a new variation, evolving it based on the expression of newly acquired characteristics and tendencies as temperament and disposition.

The higher mind is born into the lower, animal body as the subconscious mind, which contains the self-conscious mind as latent potential and gives birth to it as its offspring through a natural growth and development process. The subconscious mind, which is the aspect of the mind that we share with the animal and plant kingdom (living organisms), operate all the biological processes of our body in an automated and natural fashion, requiring no awareness on our part, and is what gives us our personality as our natural disposition, temperament, tendencies, and style of behaviors. The subconscious mind is passive and receptive in nature, and acts like a sponge to only absorb and imitate what’s around it. All of the formative conditioning which comes through the parents, living situation and conditions, and behavioral dynamics that it’s a functional part of, all serve to activate and bring out certain traits that are apart of both the ancestral memory and the soul memory, and together acts to set the stage for continued development and expression of the active components, while other memory remains dormant as latent potential that’s available to be activated and brought into expression through proper stimulus.

The self-conscious mind is birthed out of our subconscious mind around the age of seven or eight, and becomes predominantly active during adolescence. It’s during this time that we begin separating from our parents and forming our personal identity. Our “identity” (ego) is formed through our ability to begin thinking for ourselves, problem solving, making decisions, and forming an “image” of ourselves that create the experiences that we then use to self-create by how we identify or get a sense of ourselves within our own self-made experiences. The self-conscious mind is fully active and established around the age of twenty eight. We basically develop in four seven year increments, with the first two, birth through 14, establishing our subconscious formative conditioning where we create without any direct awareness as an extension of our family and environment, and 14 to 28, establishing our self-conscious, self-aware mind that’s fully identified with the body (subconscious) that birthed it. The self-conscious mind is imbued with choice and free will in order to actively separate from their parents and become their own person as an individual.

The self-conscious mind which establishes our identification as our body, social status, and lifestyle, is what’s commonly referred to as the ego. Yet ego and identity are actually the same thing, and in spiritual texts, the term ego is often used in place of identity. What, how, and who we become in life, is all about what and who we identify with or resonate and feel a connection to. The people we like and associate with, what type of experiences we create through the choices we make and the reality of those choices that we then “sense ourselves” through, is what forms the basis for the story we begin telling ourselves “about” ourselves that act to shape us as a certain type of person. We’re attracted to and naturally participate not only in certain types of situations and dramas, but also to certain roles within those situations and dramas.

As we become adults we establish our identity as a lifestyle that’s built out of all the components and conditioning that went into making us who we are, all of which originated and became established through predominantly unconscious means. Even when we develop our conscious mind and start becoming self-aware, our subconscious mind and conditioned tendencies are what formed our mental paradigm, perceptual lens, and the thematic story we used as the means of interpreting the events of our life to give them meaning and significance. So all of what we call “self-awareness” originated from our unconscious mind as natural tendencies and perceptual-behavioral patterns that we were already programmed with and continued expressing as a means of creating ourselves. All of our perceptions serve to validate us by justifying whatever it is we need in order to maintain our perspective on things, and to validate, defend and keep telling our story about things. Our story about our life, what happened to us that made us the way we are, about the way people are, and the way the world is, becomes the reality we use as a belief system to create a consistent and congruent experience of life that makes sense to us, and is how we “act on ourselves”, through our own mental perception to create ourselves.

The mind’s tendency to believe in its own illusions as the story born out of its conditioning as a trained mind-set that only utilized certain qualities and characteristics, while others remained latent, and forming their whole sense of self out of this body, these conditions, circumstances, and certain types of situations, is what forms a selective perception from a specific perspective as a self-imposed delusion that never recognizes that their true identity is as the creator of that story and not the effect of the story. When we mistakenly identify with our material circumstances and possessions, we create ourselves as mortal beings whose “self” dies with the body and is annihilated. This identification with the physical body simultaneously creates a fear of death and the tendency to desperately cling to life, without which, we would cease to exist.

The awakening, which forms the basis for rebirth, comes when we are finally able to realize in very clear terms, that we are not the product of our story, helpless to change it, and subject to it, but rather the one creating the story, and creating our “sense of self” by way of our own story about things. Once we become aware of this, we begin simultaneously realizing that we don’t have to tell this story as a means of creating ourselves in life, but we are free to tell whatever story we possess the latent and natural traits, talents, and characteristics for. We can realize the true reality of things, and by experiencing our ability to choose and willfully act out our choices, we can activate our latent potential, and by bringing it out and learning to express it by deliberately employing those aspects and abilities, learn how to tell a new type of story. A story that puts us in control as the author and choreographer of our story, and the main character. We can become whoever we want to be, if we simply realize this and are willing to give up our story about things, which means losing our identity for the brief time it takes to begin reforming it.

We’re all born with a dream for our life that lives inside of us and is known through our desire for it and imagining it as a form of soul memory. Our soul comes into life through the body with an intention for growth of some form, which only comes through utilizing our full potential for creating a certain type of experience through the story that we’re naturally designed to tell. First inwardly, by imagining and dreaming of it, then outwardly through taking action on it and willfully acting it out. All that’s required for actual growth and deliberate self-creation, is our willingness to give up and let go of our current story about things and about our life. Realizing that the only reason we’re attached to our story and don’t want to give it up, or feel that we can’t, is because we’ve built our identity out of it, and in giving it up, we won’t know “who we are”, which can overwhelm us with an extremely insecure and unsure feeling.

Our awakening as our second birth, comes as an identity crisis where whatever we’ve built our life around begins disintegrating, falling apart, no longer working, and going away, leaving us with a kind of “clean slate” to build ourselves anew. In order to build a different structure, you can’t use the same foundation or footprint. You have to completely destroy, tear down, and rework the ground that the new one is going to be built on. You have to have a completely different set of blueprints. This is why very few people actually engage in the true process of transformation and spiritual awakening, because it means completely giving up life as you know it, for an idea that’s largely unknown, obscure, and somewhat frightening. We fear change because we imagine the change is going to be worse instead of better, and we don’t have faith in our ability to actually pull it off. We’re so attached to our material existence that we can’t imagine life without it. Yet, what we often fail to realize is that all of our pain and suffering come from our attachments and addictions to whatever it is that causes us as divine beings to become associated to a mortal existence. Our belief in our mortality forms a tomb as a prison for the soul, inhibiting it from higher forms of expression as the creator of our life story, and who we truly are apart from our material body, possessions, roles and status, and our life circumstances. To shed the ego means to dissolve the “false ego”. To quit forming our identity out of our physical existence, and begin instead identifying and forming a love for the spiritual realm, our higher self, and sensing ourselves out of our divine spiritual soul instead.

Whatever we identify with, we bond ourselves to. By identifying with our material existence, we remain connected and attached to being incarnated in a material body, and we render ourselves (through choice) mortal and temporary in nature, with our “sense of self” dying with our body, instead of as immortal souls who live beyond the body in the true realm of the soul, which is purely spiritual, uninhibited, and eternal in nature. Those who remain identified with and only knowing themselves through their body, dies a thousand deaths, and remains a mortal being within the material realm of pain and suffering, a fate that’s willfully self-determined and a life sentence that’s self-imposed and regulated.

The Dyad: Prayer as the Seeds of Karma – “Casting Images in the Astral Light”

prayer
Prayer is the primary form of how we connect to our higher power and request personal experiences, and is the primary means for first revealing karma (unconscious connections) then creating through it by living out of the memory of it. The idea of karma is represented in the Tarot as “Justice”, key 11 (value of 30), and means to “teach and instruct”. It represents the idea that we only truly acquire knowledge and instruction through practice that employs ideas to produce them as experiences, which integrates the knowledge apprehended through the experience of it as “memory”. The memories created through our activities and deeds, create our karma as a memory base, that become the seeds of future actions that are performed in a natural and unconscious manner. Our karma is the memory that makes up our subconscious mind, which becomes a natural part of our personality and forms our mental paradigm which is the basis for our perception and interpretations of life. Karma as the memory obtained through our life experiences that we create through our decisions and actions, becomes our perceptual lens that we look through to experience life, and becomes the basis for our creative capacity in terms of what we feel, how we think, and what we “ask for” by imagining it.

 
The mode of consciousness represented by “Justice” (key 11) is titled “Faithful Intelligence”, because we act out our unconscious conditioning (karma) in a faithful and predictable manner. The Hebrew word for “faithful” is AMN or amen, the confirmatory expression at the end of a prayer that seals it as fate. Amen is closely related to the Sanskrit “AUM or OM”, used as a focus point for meditation, which is the original form of prayer that masterfully employs the imagination of the individual. Amen and Om confirm the prayer as an imagined creation that’s a request for a personal creation. We “ask for” whatever we imagine. Most people use their imagination not for its creative potential, but rather by running memories of various sorts through their mind over and over, which is “asking” for more of the same type of experiences that formed the memory.

 
In this idea, we connect to spirit through various forms of concentration where we become one with the ideas that we are imagining. Our perception and interpretations based on memories become the motives for all our actions. Karma is the memories that make up our mental paradigm and become the basis out of which we continue to create through projections as our thoughts formed into imaginary scenarios that express through the memory as a pattern for creating more experiences of the same nature. Our “requests” for our life come as the application of memorized ideas in new applications that form new variations.

universal

We only form memories that are recollected out of the events of our life that had significant emotional impact. The emotion we experience as we form the memory determines how we interpret it to give it meaning. Our interpretation turns events into stories that convey the meaning things have for us. A memory becomes a whole reality as an emotional idea that becomes a form of template for creating instant realities as personal interpretations. The emotion is the “shaping factor” that creates the experience we have, and is what drives our behavior as the enactment of a memory. Emotions are compelling forces and tend to control our thinking as the reliving of memories. In this way, we continue to think and imagine out of memories of the past, recreating them in the present, and continuing to form behaviors out of them. Our emotional memories become the basis of our perception of life, and keep us living out of a primarily unconscious state by repeating basic life-patterns as emotional dramas.

 
Because the memories of our unconscious mind form our basic perceptions, our prayers are born out of these same perceptions as either an extension of them, or a solution to them. We’re usually either imagining more of the same type of ideas, or asking for what counteracts it, or what we imagine it will take to transform it. We do this, usually without ever realizing that it’s our own perception, interpretation, and behaviors that are acting to create it in our life. Prayer, as a request for a reality, works off the same principle as memory itself, and is formed by an accumulative process that creates an emphasis as an imbalance creating a new dominating factor.

 
We “rebalance” the scales by changing our “constant thoughts” to be of the same nature as our requested experience. We intentionally create thoughts by imagining being “in the experience” having it as a reality, where we think of it “as if” it’s a memory that has actually happened and is simply being “remembered”. This not only changes our perspective and perceptual lens, but creates a form of substitute memory that the subconscious perceives as a real memory, and creates it as an outer experience by connecting us to the elements necessary to act it out in our immediate environment. Our subconscious not only connects us to the greater mind of our environment, but also connects us to our higher mind. The subconscious mind is the “medium” that exists between the higher plane and the lower plane, and is the passive and receptive aspect that “receives” requests or instructions for creating realities within the material plane of which it’s an inherent part of. It communicates by transmitting and receiving information, not as dialogue, but as living realities or whole ideas that form a memory. The universal language shared between the upper and the lower is “holistic ideas” as the seeded basis for creating whole realities as actualized ideas.

unit

To communicate with both the subconscious and higher conscious you must create an inner reality out of what you “do want” by imagining it with full sensory enhancement and strong emotional content that makes it compelling (magnetic). You must create it as if you’re in the process of experiencing it. Whatever we feel intensely, think about and imagine with strong emotions and sensations, we caste a pattern as a living concept into the Astral Light, which becomes magnetic. The Astral Light which is the same substance we form images out of in our imagination, is an electromagnetic medium. Images caste in it both transmit (project) and are magnetized, drawing the elements of the same nature and patterning to it.

 
The Astral Light is the field of illumination that surrounds the Earth as its atmosphere, that’s also what we call mass consciousness as the instinctual field or the morphogenic field, which is propagated with information for creation as memories, both of a neutral and objective form as living archetypes (subconscious programming for all of life) and as thought-forms created in the imagination of humans as the illusions of personal creations. Whatever emotional thoughts we dwell in, we emanate and draw to us, and become the energetic formulas for our self-created experiences. We become a beacon for them in the unified field of mass consciousness in which we are submerged. These thoughts are at once created out of our subconscious content, formulated into new variations as possible applications, then used to create more of the same type of experiences that amplify and reinforce our original subconscious programming. This is the true basis of Karma when it hinders or reverses our evolution by stunting and prohibiting our growth and ability to return to a creative state by creating brand new experiences of ourselves and our world. Accumulated memory, changed only through variations forms the foundation for continuous expression as self-creation.

speak creates

So while many think that prayer is what happens in that one moment that we set aside to ask for what will contradict what we spend the rest of our time thinking about, it’s actually being conducted all the time by how we think and use our imagination to form our thoughts into internal realities. It’s through our imagination that we communicate to the higher realm in the universal language of internal imagery. Whatever we think about, picture in our mind, and run through our mind as a scenario or movie that tells a story, we are in fact “asking for” by infusing it with an electromagnetic field, and casting it symbolically as an Astral shape within the Astral Light of the Earth’s mind, which becomes a pattern that makes us a magnet for drawing more of those same type of experiences to us. Whatever emotions we live out of that also shape our thoughts as the realities that that serve to express the emotion, also produce our behavior as our deeds and become the “causal force” driving the events of our life. All our actions produce an effect by transferring the emotion that motivated it. Our behaviors stimulate in others the same emotion that’s causing our behavior. The transference of emotions form the basis for all our relationships which are formed out of the shared emotional state that forms the nature of the interaction and the joint-reality that it acts to naturally create.

 
Our imagination is the medium that connects all aspects through a unified idea that works equally on multiple dimensions inherent within the same fundamental reality. It’s how the “inner” becomes the basis for the “outer”. It’s the key to working with all levels of the mind through the electromagnetic properties they all have in common. Its how we send a request as actual programming for our subconscious mind that reconstitutes it with new memory as creative patterns. It’s also how we “receive” information as ideas from the higher realm of spirit where knowledge exists as archetypes which are a form of universal memory as principles that give us the power to self-create by embodying and becoming one with them, and expressing in new ways as a result, reconfiguring the redundant patterns that seem to plague our life, revitalizing it with a new way of being.

 
To pray is to think and imagine while in a relaxed and receptive state. It’s to concentrate on an idea, become one with that idea by giving it your full attention without distraction, forming a single-minded perception of it as an inner reality from the perspective of being “in it”, having it, becoming the expression of it, that sets the vibration as a pattern caste in the Astral Light that’s transmitted both inwardly and outwardly as well as up and down (even armed cross), as a created memory that seeds an actual reality as its offspring. It caste’s a virtual memory as the seed for producing an equivalent reality as a personal experience.

 
Meditation is the most basic and effective means of prayer. As we meditate, we close out all outer distractions, placing our undivided attention firmly within, relax our outer mind and body, connecting to our subconscious by quieting and stilling our conscious mind, then concentrate on an idea, allowing it to rise fully within us in living form and begin unfolding as a stream of consciousness that becomes the reality of the idea as a direct experience of it. This same process can be used to both send an idea and receive an idea. It creates a two-way flow. Many times, just by concentrating not on the idea itself as a specific form, but on the laws or archetype that the form represents as a symbolic image, it opens up a two-way communication between the spiritual and material realm, where we co-create an idea by first initiating it, then by allowing it to take on a life of its own and begin forming in whatever way its naturally compelled to through a form of growth process that develops it into a progression of evolving forms as a kind of unfolding process or state of “becoming”.

transmission

Once it takes on a life of its own and begins forming of its own volition, it begins revealing hidden aspects of itself to us as the “receiving” of knowledge that’s acquired by witnessing and watching it. In this way we acknowledge what’s in us as our true nature that forms the nature of our inquiry as a desire to know more about something as a form of curiosity that directs our attention into it, penetrates and activates it, perpetuating the process which becomes a form of self-discovery. We begin by forming an idea as a symbolic image that connects us to that same idea as a principle in the higher realm of knowledge that exists in its potential state, creating an open channel of free-flowing consciousness that gives us knowledge by forming it “inside” of us as the “receptacle” for it. Through deep states of concentration, we become the receptor for higher knowledge through the faculty of our own imagination as our mind’s eye, or what’s traditionally referred to as our third-eye or Pineal gland, which is our tuning and receiving device as a transmission between parallel dimensions through the transmission and formation of Astral Light as symbolic forms.

 
We can learn to recognize the difference between fantasy and actual spiritual transmission, because fantasy is self-produced, and is a product of our own mind as a form of wishful thinking that has no foundation in reality in terms of natural laws, and is constructed completely out of our current level of knowledge as memory of some form. Higher knowledge comes as a form of education where we see and learn things we didn’t know before that couldn’t emerge out of our minds paradigm, and is usually the expression of universal law as archetypes. The education isn’t in the feeling or imagining itself, but in the laws governing its formation and animating its behavior. It teaches us the nature of law itself as a chain-of-association or evolving imagery all governed by and an offspring of the same principle, that teaches us how to recognize law no matter what form it takes on through the quality and characteristics of its form and the operation it performs through its behavior or the personality being expressed by “how” it’s behaving.

 
These universal laws are the same laws that not only form and govern the entire Natural world, but also form and govern our individual mind, and provide us with the tools necessary for creating by intentionally operating our mind with a sense of full awareness. They provide us with formulas for creative processes. They always come as the demonstration of law as form, function, and order, which acts as a model or concept that allows us to gain an understanding of it, that’s necessary for being able to utilize it at the practical level. Communication from the higher realm of consciousness is non-personal (universal and objective), and always acts to teach, instruct, and guide us with the knowledge necessary to create whatever it is we’re wishing for in our own life by learning to work by way the laws that govern our mind. Our mind has the ability to work through the elements that make up the Astral plane to shape our reality by reprogramming our subconscious mind with new memory that evolves it into new forms of expression and ways of being.

The only ability God or our Higher-Self has of working directly within the material plane is by working “through us”, by becoming one with us in mind and body. By receiving and accurately interpreting the knowledge handed down, reforming our mind by way of it producing new perceptions, interpretation and actions in the world. We pull down or draw into us the upper plane by becoming one and the same with it in mind and body. To become one with God, is to become God in-form. It’s to be in-formed by God. It’s to become “god-like” in mind and actions. To use laws as the consciousness of God to form our expressions and create our experiences, which remolds our subconscious mind as our soul.

 
Our creative ability lies in how we use our imagination by shaping Astral Light into conceptualizations that become internal representations as virtual memory that provides the subconscious with templates for creating new types of experiences as outer realities that match our inner realities. We enter into a state of communion with our higher source through deep levels of concentration, where we become one with an idea, and step into it, penetrating it through a desire to “know it” through the perspective of being it. We become the channel through which knowledge flows into the world as laws that create realities that form new memories that serve to propagate the ideas inherent in mass-consciousness, or more accurately in the “collective unconscious”. Through prayer as meditation, the self-conscious (thinking-verbal mind) connects to the higher conscious (archetypal-whole ideas) through the subconscious which acts as the passive medium between the two. By subduing the conscious “thinking” and willing mind as internal dialogue, and becoming fully present, we open up a two-way flow as the inquiry that stimulates the answer as a demonstration formed as an internal reality, which acts as a metaphor or allegory for how to apply it.

 
By learning to understand the language of metaphor and allegory as ideas and stories that are the living demonstration of laws and principles, we can learn to recognize it as its being played out all around us in our everyday life. We can also get a feel for how to apply it in our own life, in order to create by way of it. It teaches us to recognize the invisible forces that are always motivating activity and producing our behaviors. It develops our intuition, which is the only way we receive knowledge from the spiritual plane as “whole ideas” which come as a form of knowing, without an explanations for how we know. It comes as recognition of the relationship that exists between the known and unknown worlds. Between the invisible and visible realms. Between God and humanity.
