Self-Empowerment – The Relationship between Choice, Will, and Creation

This idea can seem confusing in terms of being able to actually employ it at the practical level because it involves different functions of different aspects of our own mind working in harmony with each other to produce the same outcome as an experience of reality. We have to understand the nature of our own mind in order to use it in a masterful way to create our reality. All of what we call our “higher capacities” of creation come through learning how our mind works at different stages of the same overall process, and how to not only use it in a deliberate and intentional manner, but also how to “troubleshoot” problems through a process of self-reflection that brings deeper forms of awareness.

All of life exists as a form of “feedback loop” between the inner and outer, and the upper and lower. We’re always working within and interacting with three planes of existence simultaneously as the means of both creating our reality, and then experiencing ourselves as that reality, shaping ourselves accordingly. Our mind is our soul and is not only the aspect of ourselves that’s multidimensional, but also the means and instrument through which we create intentionally to produce experiences of ourselves. When we remain unaware of our “true nature” as a higher, creative being, we experience life as happening “to us” instead of “by us”. We feel we have no real power over what happens and what path our life takes as a result. This is because while we’re associated into the subconscious, we lack the ability to create, just like animals lack the ability to determine their reality which serves to create them instead.

In order to create in an intentional manner, we need to form an understanding of the 3-fold nature of our mind, how each aspect functions in creating a greater whole, and the significance of parallel planes of a higher and lower nature. In order to form a working understanding of something we have to use a model in order to conceptualize it. The model we form in order to “observe something in action” is not the knowledge or idea itself, but rather a demonstration of how spiritual forces serve to create through material systems that are of a complementary and corresponding nature. We have to understand what aspect of our mind plays what role in creating a unified experience of reality. Many errors come from not assigning the proper roles to the different aspects and planes on which they operate.

One of the most basic mistakes we make comes from thinking that our lower, animal subconscious is what possesses “will” and that in order to make something happen we have to produce it through some form of determination and working against what comes as purely natural events. Anytime we’re struggling to try and make something happen contrary to the current conditions and circumstances, we’re working “against” or in contradiction of natural laws. All universal laws correspond to natural laws, and all creation comes through purely natural processes. When we work by way of universal laws to create, everything comes into fruition through a process of synchronized events that seem to come naturally through their own volition. This doesn’t mean that no action on our part is required, but instead reveals the “type” and “nature” of the action required.

Three Aspects of the Mind Working on Two Parallel Planes

The 3-fold principle of the mind/soul is illustrated in Sacred Geometry by the Triad as a triangle or pyramid. This diagram illustrates how our mind operates harmoniously between two fundamental planes of existence, often referred to as the “higher and lower plane” of the same reality which acts to unify them into a single reality. If we draw a horizontal line about 3/4 of the way up the triangle, we form the “capstone” of the pyramid as the higher plane and the mind of that plane which exists in a unified (single) state. As the “one mind” descends into the lower plane, it separates from itself, dividing and regenerating itself to form two aspects of itself as polar opposites that are complementary in nature and necessary in order to create an “experience of itself” as another.

Duality is required in order to produce the “appearance” of a self and another, an inner and outer, and as the means of acquiring “knowledge” of yourself which only comes through experience. The Astral Plane represents the plane of “knowledge” that’s only acquired through experience. We descend into a body that’s located within time and in a specific set of conditions and circumstances, forming an inner self and outer world necessary in order to “experience” ourselves “as” certain qualities expressed through a specific personality. This law is represented by the primary Law of the Monad, which is represented as a dot within a sphere. The dot is concentrated energy that produces the appearance of an outer reality as a holographic projection or emanation.

All material manifestation is comprised of “light” as photons which exist simultaneously as “both” a particle and wave. Our entire outer reality is a projection of our own mind on a higher level, and is contained fully within our higher mind as a “mental construct”. What we refer to as the “mind” is the “organizing principle” that “charges” matter of the material plane with a “frequency” that has both a pattern and self-organizing mechanism inherent in it that acts to organize light into “coherent fields of consciousness” as a harmonious unification of polar energies.

The mind operates through a hierarchical structure as ordered planes of existence that vary in density as different frequencies that vibrate at different rates and modes, similar to a musical scale of octaves. The Human soul of the higher mind exists on a “higher” plane than the lower mind of the material body, and is the aspect that orders, organizes and animates the entire lower one, forming a “singularity”. It oversees and orchestrates all the activities of the “entire” lower plane, and is the aspect that causes new formations on the material plane through an act of “will”. All of what we call “willpower” as the ability to “create” is conducted by our self on a higher plane and comes by way of the “whole reality” through a natural sequence of correlated events. It brings change as a harmonious movement of the entire material reality by introducing new ideas into the subconscious of our own lower mind that’s also shared with all of humanity and the Natural world of the Earth’s plane. What we call “oneness” of the material world is due to the fact that we all share the same “group mind” of the subconscious.

Within the material plane of formation, the subconscious is the aspect that produces a material manifestation out of “ideas” that it’s given by the higher mind. The subconscious is the feminine aspect of the mind that conceives of the ideas projected into it by the masculine aspect, and gestates it through a process that adapts it harmoniously with the current conditions and circumstances and births it as a material manifestation. As an idea is formed internally and magnetized with sensation and emotion, it forms into a pattern used for organizing the outer sphere of reality to be of the same idea and produces a certain “type” of experience as a metaphorical correspondence of that idea.

As the unified mind of the upper, causal plane divides itself in order to regenerate in the lower plane, it still exists in a polar state of equilibrium, and comes into the material body as the subconscious pregnant with the self-conscious, which it births through a process of adaptation, growth, and development. The self-conscious aspect of the mind is latent within the subconscious as its potential for self-creation within the body. In our initial state as a child only our subconscious is active and creating and we develop naturally as a part of our family and immediate environment. We’re born into an unconscious state where we lack all awareness of our true self which is what’s creating our entire material reality as an experience of ourselves within a certain matrix of dynamic relationships. The self-conscious is birthed spontaneously as a growth process where we “come into ourselves” and begin forming our identity as we mature and become an adult.

It’s the feminine aspect of our subconscious that’s a part of the Earth’s Soul of material reality and is the aspect of ourselves that “manifests” an idea as an outer experience of reality. While the subconscious is the powerhouse of the material plane and organizes our outer reality to be metaphorically the same as our inner reality, it lacks the inherent ability to think rationally, make decisions, and intentionally “seed itself” with a “new idea” to create as a reality. It births the rational self-conscious aspect as its own masculine counterpart that has the ability to reason, analyze, and make decisions based on its own calculations. The masculine, self-conscious mind has the ability to “seed” its own feminine aspect with its decisions, but it’s often almost completely unaware of how to do it. The subconscious only “takes in” and manifests the ideas given to it by the self-conscious which it then communicates to the higher mind.

 Our self-conscious, which is the self-aware aspect that perceives the outer creation of our subconscious, draws all its ideas as thoughts from within the group mind of the collective unconscious and forms most all of our “thoughts” from whatever we’ve been taught, and acts out whatever “relationship dynamics” we’ve been conditioned to in an automatic fashion. Most of our thoughts come automatically and are formed out of memories of some kind. When we rely on this aspect of our conscious mind, we simply create by seeding our subconscious over and over with memories of the past, and we use our creative power to create more of the past in the present.

Our self-conscious perceives the outer world created by our own subconscious and creates experiences of ourselves through the reality of our own making. This aspect, which is birthed fully within the physical body and experiences itself as the “personality” of the body, doesn’t realize that it’s also an aspect of a higher mind and is bestowed with the ability to create itself and its reality in whatever way it wants, and instead usually lives out its entire life from within a primarily unconscious state. This aspect of the mind gains “realization” of its own creation as the outer correspondence to its own inner thoughts and has the ability to make “new decisions” about how it wants to experience itself. As we gain new realizations about ourselves through our self-created experiences, they serve the purpose of making us self-aware and we can learn how to modify them through the active decision to work with our own thoughts.

Both masculine aspects of the same mind require the feminine aspect they share in order to actively create in new ways. The active requires the equivalent passive component to act as a “receiver”. The subconscious is the “medium” through which the active components of the upper and lower mind communicate with one another. As we make a new decision for what we want to actively create and experience, we shape that idea into a possible reality in our imagination (womb), where it’s communicated to the higher mind of Will. As the higher mind receives the sensory image as a “metaphor” for creating, it then injects that idea into the subconscious of the Earth’s plane, where it’s organized into a sequence of correlated events that bring it about naturally as an inherent part of our outer reality. But when it begins formulating as a corresponding part of our outer reality we have to recognize it as such, and make more decisions to “act on it”. As the ideas that we “request” through decisions begin formulating we have to resist the habitual tendency to discount them or blow them off as not being what we wanted and enter into a metaphorical relationship with them by actively engaging in their continued creation.

In a similar fashion, our higher mind is always injecting archetypal ideas into our subconscious as a means of administering karma as universal justice. These come as mental impressions that form inner visions of a particular type of experience that don’t come from memories obtained in this lifetime. When visions come as an inner voice out of nowhere, where nothing externally served to produce it, we’re given insight into what’s coming so we can prepare for it. These events seem to come outside of or in spite of our conscious decisions sometimes, because they’re providing us with the flip-side of our own actions from a previous time and life. This allows us to realize that what we perceive as another is actually our “self” as an expanded version. Our perception of others and reality is actually an extension of our self as we exist on a higher level of unity. We’re always acting “on ourselves” through our perception of our self as another.

There’s only One of Us

As we begin realizing this, we start waking up to the true nature of things and begin creating in a more responsible and compassionate way. Whatever we “do to another” we’re actually doing to ourselves on a higher level. In a unified state all creation comes as “patterns” produced through a “cause and effect relationship” where we play every role in creating a “holistic experience of our Self”. Our entire outer reality is produced as a correspondence to our inner reality. Everything that we do in the outer world through activity of some kind, we first do inwardly by thinking about it and running the consequences it’ll produce through our mind, making a decision of some kind regarding it. When we act in a compulsive and automatic way without thinking, we’re then provided with the “realization” of what we created while in an unconscious state through the choices and actions we took. This provides us with feedback that allows us to modify our process until we produce the results we intended to.

By reflecting on our life and grasping the full ramifications of the “cause and effect relationship” between being and doing, we can begin making the adjustments necessary to create in a more conscious and purposeful way. Once we begin realizing that no one is actually doing anything “to us”, but are simply stimulating us in a way that causes us to do it to ourselves, first as our thoughts and emotions, and then as our outward actions, we can begin seeing and realizing that we are the ones who are in fact creating our life to be the way it is, and we can make new decisions for ourselves that we administer by how we seed our own imagination. We can begin learning how to create from a self-aware and awake state. As we begin realizing that our outer world is comprised of our own psychological aspects, most of which we’re unaware of, we can gain tremendous insights into our own psyche and unhealed aspects of ourselves, and act on ourselves in a precise and deliberate manner to correct our own errors.

 Once we understand the dynamic nature of our own mind and how we create experiences of ourselves, we’re provided with the tools as universal laws for turning an unconscious process into a conscious and fully self-aware process of creation. As we gain self-realization through the outer mirror of our own inner mind, we learn the lesson it provides, and we begin developing our ability to use our mind in a much more proficient and deliberate way. We can use all of our experiences to become aware of our unconscious tendencies, and bring them into a harmonious state as a result. Through self-realization of our outer awareness as a mirror of our inner self, we can become conscious creators of our own life journey. We can learn how to utilize every aspect of our mind to produce a unified whole as the harmonious synchronization of all aspects of ourselves. As we wake up to our true self and creative abilities, we enter into our higher consciousness and perceive reality as a whole conducted from a higher plane of “true” self-awareness and realization.

DNA Transformation – The Law of the Tetrad

The Universal Laws demonstrated in Sacred Geometry provide us with the practical tools for learning how to use our mind to regulate our body

One of the most basic interpretations of the Law of the Tetrad, which is formed in the womb of the Dyad, is that all outward communication as information is received inwardly by the subconscious and DNA (which is the brain of the cell), and modifies the organization of the internal system (etheric body), altering its vibratory frequency and modifying it’s outer appearance (material structure) accordingly. DNA is composed of a liquid crystalline substance that’s both etheric and material in nature, and acts as a medium for the transfer and decoding of information between the etheric holographic fields of astral light (ether), and the material body. Because DNA is primarily composed of etheric substance (liquid light), it’s modulated through an exchange of information that works intuitively on the etheric body, which is what’s used to re-inform the cellular structure and specialization process of the material-molecular body.

An exchange of information occurs within the inner core of all things as a form of receiver that picks up on waves being transmitted through the ether, which modifies the “informational structure” of the core. Just as the Pineal gland acts as the receiver and decoder of information from higher realms, the DNA of the body acts as a receiver and decoder for complementary information that instantaneously changes the state of every cell (energetic entanglement) through the integration and assimilation of information, altering the whole body based on the energetic state of the etheric body as the subtle electromagnetic field of information used to regenerate it. Our body undergoes a constant process of cellular regeneration based on the information as memory processed by both the subconscious and DNA of the body.

The subtle realm of both the material body and the entire material realm, exist and function outside of time and space in a unified manner, as if they’re “one organism”.  The phenomena that we scientifically call “communication” doesn’t take place in “space and time” (4th dimension) as an actual transference of information from one point to another, but comes as an instantaneous shift that happens everywhere in the body at once. Vibratory information as waves are reflected over the surface of the mind-field (bio-field) that surrounds, envelopes, and permeates the physical body (electromagnetic field) and polarized aspects are absorbed (inducted and sorted) and received internally by the DNA-Pineal, and serves to reprogram the etheric hologram as the internal reality that arises naturally in the imagination. Through the corresponding operations of both the Pineal and DNA, the “mind and body”, and the entire outer reality of which they exist as a part, are always in-sync as “one organism”.

The phantom (Holy Ghost) is a holographic pre-image of biostructures that accompanies all biological forms and exists as a whole registry of wave-copies and dynamic matrices of information as a convoluted continuum used for organizing, constructing, regenerating, and animating them in an automated fashion. This holographic pre-image as the informational-fields used to structure and regenerate the body is known in Spiritual Sciences as the etheric body, which is the twin or double of the material body as a hologram or 3-D, spatial blueprint for constructing it. This etheric hologram is composed of astral light as essence or bio-photons that both receive and transmit information carried on waves through the astral plane of the Earth as morphogenetic fields of the instinctual plane of the collective unconscious. The basic Law of the Tetrad, is when two fields (Monads) vibrating at the same frequency merge into and blend with each other (resonant induction), forming an interference pattern (Dyad), that acts to cancel out some attributes, while matching and amplifying other ones, modifying the overall vibration into a new one as their unique combination (triad) that forms coherence as a new pattern or offspring that re-informs and alters the etheric body, which modifies the cellular regeneration of the physical body (Tetrad).

The Law of Tetrad represents when non-local information enters into the local apparatus through resonance, and reformulates it into a coherent pattern as an internal image (sign) that’s “reflected” outward as a projection forming the physical equivalent as its expression. The information is “recorded” (like a mirror image) on the physical DNA used to organize electromagnetic fields as organizational structures of proteins into the pattern or configuration of the frequency, which forms the etheric body as a holographic template for organizing the molecular structure of the organism. The etheric hologram as a bio-field acts as both a transmitter and receiver of waves of information that are of the same form or frequency. The incorporation of diverse information of a similar nature that can be synthesized into the cellular programming evolves it to new structures, forms, and ways of being. It forms a greater and more diverse range of self-expression.

DNA acts as a bio-computer or quantum hologram that’s a convoluted liquid crystalline structure that’s an intricate dynamic matrix of information that’s always morphing based on how it’s being programmed with new integrated information. It’s always receiving information from other morphic fields around it, interpreting that information through a process of adapting it to its existing structure, modifying its meaning, imprinting and recording the modified version of the information etherically, altering its structure (vibration) accordingly, while simultaneously radiating, emitting, and transmitting it. Vibration as a field of information produces an electromagnetic field as a holographic form that takes information as thoughts, words, and ideas and turns it into a 3-D form comprised of subtle energy (invisible) that becomes the invisible force as a field that organizes and holds matter together forming and sustaining a biological system.

Scientists have now discovered that what they originally thought was “junk DNA” (98% of it), is actually more of a memory bank that operates much like the human mind does, and is always exchanging energy as information with everything else, and works off the same rules as grammar and language. Its encoded information is linguistic in nature, and contains dual wave-forms as both optical and acoustic. It works through speech as words and sentences that form images in the imagination as the meaning of the words. Words as a sound vibration form into patterns of light as the image inherent in the word, or that the word represents in terms of what it means. As we speak we simultaneously form and internal reality of what we’re talking about. Words form images, and sentences form scenarios or a chain-of-association as whole realities. A reality produces an experience of that idea as its reason and meaning. The meaning things have for us produce the stories we tell ourselves about things as a way of making sense of them. Our stories as an internal narrative exists as a form of “theme” produced by our mental paradigm (vibratory structure of our mind as a dynamic matrix of associated ideas), gives us a consistent and cohesive experience of reality. Everything that exists happens for a reason because all things are called forth into reality through thoughts (internal speech), which are the cause of all forms (In the beginning was the word, and the word was with God, and through the spoken word which moved across the waters (liquid crystal), all of life was called forth and formed from the elements).

Our DNA, like our mind, is programmed linguistically through visual imagery. One of the most fundamental laws is the Law of Cause and Effect, in which every effect as a material form has a cause and a reason for being here. Nature operates out of the Law of Conservation, and never produces excess or waste of any kind, but rather uses the least amount of energy possible to perform an operation in the most efficient manner possible. Everything exists for a reason and has a purpose. The phantom effect as vibration that produces an electromagnetic field as the holographic pattern inherent in the vibration, is based on both verbal and visual information which exists in its most primary state as thoughts. As we think and imagine our thoughts as a virtual reality that gives us an internal experience of them, we are literally programming our DNA as our subconscious mind to produce the reality of those thoughts as an outward correspondence.

The ongoing programming of our genes doesn’t necessarily change our physical qualities and characteristics, but rather works topologically, where our inner constitution changes. As we develop by programming ourselves with our own thoughts and the thoughts of others (speaking), our character is developed without changing our body or general structure. We program our genes with all levels of our being through our thoughts, feelings, emotional states, and behavioral dynamics that all form different aspects of the same cohesive reality. As we change our inner being as our mental paradigm, the physical world itself doesn’t change in the fundamental sense, but how it “appears to us” changes. Our perception of it can change quite drastically. The perspective we take and the perception we form from that perspective, create our outer reality as our experience of it based on resonance. Experiences that we form that are intense or have a strong emotional component make up what we can call our actual memory as our long term memory that we continue to create out of forming all of our other life experiences to be of a similar nature. Our memories produced by how we interpreted life events, are also the memory that programs our genes, becoming “genetic memory”, and are passed down generation to generation as inherited tendencies. We simultaneously act to populate the astral field of morphic resonance with those memories, making them available to anyone that’s of a similar nature to us, and who can therefore act as a receiver and processor for those memories as their “own thoughts”.

Morphic resonance works on the same principles as quantum entanglement and quantum coherent system assembly, where once two fields and particles blend and form into a variant, both continue to operate as one, as a whole system of complementary opposites. What we connect with, feel a sense of chemistry with, or form a pronounced reaction to in any way, is what seemingly exists outside of ourselves as a complementary opposite to the same pattern as a behavioral dynamic. We can only “see” (perceive) in everything else what’s of the same nature (vibratory pattern) as we are. All comprehension comes as a form of resonance, as the vibratory pattern that forms our mental filters that we look through that only allow us to see, interpret meaningfully, and respond to what’s of the same pattern as opposite and complementary roles in a dynamic cohesive system.

We only alter our own vibration as a mental state by incorporating variable information within the same frequency, re-informing our overall system with new variables. For this reason most evolution is a very gradual process that takes place over long periods of time, and by acquiring different bodies with different characteristics, in different conditions and circumstances, that allow us to develop in new ways. We can facilitate and greatly speed up our own evolution by undertaking a constant form of learning by continuously providing ourselves with new information that we absorb and integrate, producing different types of experiences that become the memory that upgrades our paradigm and changes our character, our basic demeanor and behaviors, and correspondingly our perception of the outer world. As we change internally through the integration of new information that produces new perceptual filters and experiences that become memory as our vibratory structure, our outer reality as our perception of it, changes to the exact same degree.

All information as knowledge, has dual properties as both acoustic and optical that together form the “phantom effect” as an electromagnetic field that organizes light as essence into a form that serves as a blueprint, or 3-D spatial map for generation, cell differentiation, and location within the whole system as a growth and development process. Transmission of information as the teleportation of holograms will produce the physical equivalent as an organizational process. It simultaneously attracts and organizes into a holistic system whatever is “like it” (same type of information), while repelling and not noticing (integrating) what’s not. As we think about an idea, both in words and pictures, repeatedly and with intensity, we produce the electromagnetic field of those thoughts as a virtual reality that becomes the magnetic force for gathering, organizing, and producing its correspondence as an outer reality that gives us an experience of it. Our thoughts are the creative force of both ourselves (mind and body) and our perception of reality because the same vibration as a holographic pattern, is producing both. We are always the ones creating and evolving ourselves through our own thoughts which form our entire reality. The same vibration as a pattern structures the internal and the external to be of the same nature and story, which together convey the same meaning.

In Sacred Geometry the Tetrad, represented by a cube or square, and the number 4, as the 4 Elements that form the material world, is produced by the Monad as a scalar wave (unification), that regenerates by propagating, forming itself as another (the outer world as the same pattern-frequency as the inner world), forming an interference pattern as an interaction with itself that produces a variable as a new combination (Triad) that rises first internally through the imagination of the mind as a virtual-image, that’s then reflected (projected as a perceptual lens) outward, forming the material manifestation of the internal image. This gives us the basic formula for transforming ourselves using our own mind and imagination as the most basic form of what we call “will”. Our will is our ability to create whatever we desire by embodying and becoming one with it, first in our mind, which programs our body with the frequency of our thoughts, connecting with that same idea in the outer world by first producing the perception of it, interaction with it, and ultimately, the material manifestation of it as a correspondence. While we don’t change the “original creation” (the body or outer reality) itself, we change how it appears and behaves by producing a variable of it. We re-organize the information it’s comprised of into new sequences as sentences by how we think about it, which make it mean something different. All reality as both ourselves and the outer world, is produced by meaning. The meaning we give things forms our perception of reality.

How we Form our Thoughts – The Role Suggestion Plays in our Daily Lives

awakening I often get asked “can everyone be hypnotized”? Or are there some people who can’t? What this shows me is that most people don’t understand what hypnotism is or how our mind naturally operates by way of it. A better question would be, “is there anytime we’re NOT being hypnotized”? Many people spend the better part of their lives in a constant state of hypnosis, being basically unconscious of how they’re being influenced by everyone around them, and how they’re systematically “given” thoughts, that they then adopt as their own, personalize them by how they imagine them, which simultaneously modifies their paradigm by incorporating them. These thoughts then become our own, and we use them to program ourselves by way of them by simply thinking about them. Our thoughts, as our internal dialogue is the most basic form of self-hypnosis. We program ourselves by way of our own thinking. In order to understand how this works, all we have to do is look at what hypnosis is, and what laws of the mind it operates by, and then learn how to recognize those same processes as they operate in our daily lives.   All hypnosis can be thought of as the primary means through which a thought as a suggestion is introduced into the mind which is receptive to it, meaning, there’s no form of resistance to it. We have two aspects of the mind that are always operating in tandem to create our experience and turn ideas that are introduced into it into full fledged inner realities by imagining them. The subconscious, which is the powerhouse of the system, is programmed and operates out of memory and produces all our natural behaviors by regulating our emotional state which is attached to memories of various sorts. As emotions are stimulated in us, we reference memories associated to those emotional states and use them to perceive our outer situation. The subconscious is passive and receptive, which means as long as information is delivered in its language as an imagined reality with strong feelings or emotional content, it doesn’t resist, argue against, edit or analyze the information, but simply accepts it as an “actual reality” that it then utilizes like an actual memory producing a whole series of behaviors out of it that act to produce it as an outer experience, while simultaneously forming our perceptual lens to include the idea, connecting us to that idea in our outer environment. gears The self-conscious aspect is the “thinking mind” that forms our internal dialogue as what most think of as our “thoughts”, that are a form of self-talk, and acts as the gatekeeper to the subconscious by examining and editing everything to decide what’s allowed in to take hold, and what’s resisted or declined, and therefore prevented from taking hold. Whenever we’re in a relaxed state and have no strong objections to the information being received, we are in a passive state, and readily allow ideas in. Likewise, whenever information is delivered with a strong emotional component, especially fear, the emotion overrides the logical aspect, and is instantly taken in and allowed to take hold. Emotion is like a hook that seats the idea in the psyche where its then “dwelled on” and thought about extensively. The emotion married to an idea is what determines how we develop that idea in our imagination through the meaning we give it. The meaning shapes the story we tell about it, and the emotion intensifies it. Through this process all memories are produced by emotional states of some sort, and the emotion activates the memory associated with it as our perceptual lens that restructures our outer objective reality into a personalized subjective reality by how we interpret it. Memories are an interpretation mechanisms that provide us with instant realities as a means of creating consistent types of experiences based on them.   The primary forms of hypnotic induction that most commonly take place in our daily lives is various forms of entertainment (especially ones that come as movies or virtual images with music and sound), researching information (with a sense of anticipation), shock or fright of some kind, experiences that have strong emotional impact, and mental entrainment that comes from a strong feeling of familiarity or resonating with someone or something, being seduced, and of course, the most powerful of all, falling in love or being mesmerized by someone or an idea about something. Naturally, fear causes us to close down, stop, avoid, move away from, or hide in some way, and love, being compelling, draws us towards things with a desire to become one with them. Both extremes, love and fear, control our thoughts and we form internal images that first produce and amplify those feelings, then act to intensify and increase them, giving us more of them. Our thoughts act as suggestions to our subconscious mind which converts them into imaginary realities that it perceives as being real or actual experiences. Because the subconscious operates out of memory and forms behavioral patterns based on memory, it turn imaginary realities into actual memories and creates automatic and natural behaviors out of them. When this happens we are living a great deal of our life out of an illusion of our own making. gene The basis of hypnosis is the willing intake of an idea as a suggestion that has a strong sensory component that invokes a strong emotional response, intensifying it, that we take into our mind and begin developing it by imagining it as an actual reality or conceptualization that makes it believable, forming what the subconscious mind mistakes for an actual event or outer reality. An idea given to the subconscious as an actual life-like reality with strong emotions (making it seem actual), it interprets the same way it does an actual reality as an outer experience, and uses it as memory to form its programming. The imagined memory programs the subconscious mind with new patterns that become our perceptual lens and connects us to those same types of emotional patterns in our environment, magnetizing us to them. By imagining an idea with strong sensations, incorporates that idea as a modification to our overall mental programming as our paradigm, giving you a new way of perceiving things and new behaviors for creating and cooperatively participating in that reality as an actual experience or possibility. We naturally begin anticipating more of those same types of experiences, setting an expectation for them, and being able to create more experiences out of them by how we perceive and interpret things. We only pull out of any situation the elements that can be reshaped into our pattern as a storyline by how we interpret it to give it meaning and significance and use it as the basis for telling our story about it, while ignoring anything that doesn’t fit in.   If you simply sit and observe your own thoughts for awhile, you’ll notice that most of them came from some form of outer source. Even the ones that form your paradigm as the thematic storyline you’re always telling yourself about things, probably came to you through something that was said to you, some movie or video you watched, the lyrics of a song, an article you read, an idea you studied, or something you learned in school. Most of our thoughts come as suggestions from others that we continue developing by how we think about them and evolve them through various life situations or stages, and acquire them as our own, constructing our paradigm by way of them.   Dr. Linda Gadbois Spiritual Development Personal Transformation About the author: Dr. Linda is a Spiritual Scientist and scholar of Hermetic Sciences and Ancient Wisdom traditions.
