“15” – The Devil: Overcoming Weaknesses, Material Attachments, and Transcending Illusion

In all forms of Esoteric Sciences ideas are communicated in the universal language of Archetypes, numbers, and symbols. We’re given a grand formula as a composite image or idea that must be intuitively interpreted in order for its hidden knowledge to be apprehended. All actual learning takes place through our subconscious where we impregnate ourselves with a seeded idea that gestates and not only unfolds spontaneously in the imagination as a whole idea or process, but continues to unfold over an extended period of time, bringing us deeper and more relevant insights into the same idea. We know we’ve apprehended the knowledge inherent in an idea when we can relate to it in the activities of our everyday life, and when it becomes an inherent part of our outer reality as our “perception”. Once an idea becomes fully integrated into our mental paradigm, it becomes a fundamental part of our material matrix as the substrate that gives rise to it, holds it together in a cohesive manner, and animates it through a form of cosmic relationship.

All Archetypes represent principles that are a natural part of our cosmic consciousness. This archetypal principle, like the pentagram which is a key component of it, is probably one of the most misunderstood and misinterpreted ones there are. This is perhaps due to the fact that the image used to represent it tends to elicit a sense of fear, apprehension, and disgust. This reaction is usually due to how it’s been grossly misinterpreted through Christian allegory. Christians perverted the idea represented by the god “Pan” as being witches that worshiped Nature and stole, sacrificed and ate children. This interpretation was formulated as a means of using fear to control by creating “illusions” that caused “panic”. If we look at each aspect combined to produce this composite image, we can not only gain a better understanding of what it’s showing us about our own nature, but we can also attain the “process” necessary in order to work with it in an intelligent manner. As with all archetypal images we want to look at the general overall composition while also identifying the “Keys” that reveal the laws involved.

The number 15 is represented in the Tarot by the archetype of the “Devil”, which is also the mythological god “Pan”. The basic composition is similar to those of Key 5, 6, 7, 14, and 19, which show a larger figure, usually of a divine nature (angel or priest) overseeing and governing 2 smaller beings that are male and female as a couple. This composition forms a “triangle” and naturally represents the higher-self or mind, working directly through the two aspects of the subconscious (female) and self-conscious (male) that manifest within the lower plane of materialism. In this depiction the divine principle is the “devil” presiding over a couple who are chained to a treasure chest of gold coins. Their chains are loose and can be easily removed, but they either don’t realize they can remove them, or they don’t want to remove them.

Pan-devil, ruled by Capricorn, is shown as half goat and half man, representing our lower, animal nature which is instinctively driven through emotional impulses and primal urges. The goat aspect of this character is the “lower half” that’s below the belly button and governs the lower body of sexuality, union, and reproduction. Only humans have belly buttons, and it signifies man inhabiting an animal body. The devil is symbolized by the Hebrew letter “Ayin”, and the letter “O”. It’s ruled by Saturn in Capricorn, where Mars is exalted. This image is the “polar opposite” of the one shown in Key 14, which it proceeds out of as a natural progression of what’s necessary in order to “change our vibration” as the means of “ascending” in spirit to higher dimensions. 15 lays the foundation for 16 to naturally emerge as a consequence, which represents being liberated from our own self-imposed material bondage.

The “sense” associated with the devil is “sight”, the most important sense of all in perceiving reality, and the one we’re most easily “deceived” by. Through sight we see appearances alone. Forming a visual image produces sensation, and the “eye” is used to represent “sensation” just as the “lion” serves to represent all “subhuman modes of life expression”. When we see appearances only we reside in the limitations of the visible world as a form of ignorance that forms spiritual bondage. Ignorance comes when we accept these limitations as being all there is. The most predominant form of sexual seduction as enticement comes through visual stimulation that causes arousal as heightened sensation. The most basic form of ignorance comes from believing what’s being presented, which forms our limitations and bondage to the world of illusions. When we remain ignorant of our true self we gladly succumb to the limitations being imposed on us by our lower self.

This idea represents indulgences that cause incongruity as weaknesses, character flaws, and shortcomings. The mental state associated with Ayin is “mirth”, which indicates merriment, laughter, and celebrating. It represents that which beguiles us through a state of enchantment. Laughter is a prophylactic and acts to purify the subconscious by dissolving mental complexes and internal conflicts. Laughter is a form of medicine that clears tension from the body caused by repressed emotions.

In the Metatron Cube of Space, 15 is the line at the lowest level as “west-below”, and connects NW (Key 11) with SW (Key 13), and South-below (Key 18) with North-below (Key 9). This provides us with further insight as a formula for understanding the faculties involved and the processes necessary to employ in working intelligently with them. Key 11 = Karma (universal justice); Key 13 = death (transformation); Key 18 = Moon (subconscious); and Key 9 = Completion and perfection. Key 15 also corresponds to Key 2 “below”, and Key 10 “West” as the “center axis” of the cube, representing the soul’s memory (2) as a cycle of creation (10). We’re initially programmed (conditioned) through an unconscious state that lays the groundwork out of which we continue creating ourselves in an unconscious manner throughout our life.

The number “15” gives us a primary formula of the laws involved and is calculated as 1 + 5 = 6. 1 represents focused attention (will), 5 = mind over matter as our connection with our Higher Self, and 6 (Lovers) as the intimate union of the subconscious with the self-conscious orchestrated by our Higher Self (Guardian Angel). The devil is shown with an inverted pentagram over his forehead (third-eye), which symbolizes the higher mind being controlled by the 4 Elements of material reality where it resides on a level that’s subhuman and instinctual. We experience incongruity, a lack of integrity, and internal conflict whenever our self-conscious stands in opposition of our subconscious, and we create in an inconsistent manner controlled by our passions, impulses, and sexual desires (addictions).

Capricorn is a cardinal earthy sign that governs the knees, which we’re brought to in crisis and kneel on to pray. We’re brought to our knees through our sense of bondage and personal insufficiency, and become subservient to our material existence. When we become identified with our personal possessions they act to determine us. All bondage comes from our failure to realize that we are meant to “rule Nature”, rather than being “ruled by it”. This idea represents our attachments to materialism produced by weaknesses and addictive tendencies that shape our morality to be “animal-like” and easily deceived and led astray through pleasure of various kinds. Mars is exalted in Capricorn, symbolized by Key 16, which follows sequentially, represented by the “lightning struck tower”, which destroys the form that holds us captive under the guise of safety and security. It’s our castle, title, and possessions that form our prison and bonds us to the lower planes of spiritual degradation. Whatever we “identify with”, we become one with in spirit and use as the means of creating experiences of ourselves.

 The mode of consciousness assigned to it is “Renewing Intelligence” as regeneration necessary in order to birth ourselves anew from a fully conscious and purified state that results from stepping back into our “identity” as a “divine being”. It’s through incongruities in our character that we unconsciously destroy what we’ve built. An incongruity is something that doesn’t fit and can also bring forth new ideas as adaptations (5). When we find a fact that doesn’t fit with our beliefs, we’re required to revise them to include the new information, upgrading them as a result. Whenever we let go of our attachment to things, we go through a period where we need to make adjustments and develop ourselves in new ways.

The icon of the Devil represents our “adversary” and that which refers to the ideas that relentlessly oppose our struggle for freedom. It’s our lower nature governing and utilizing the power of our higher nature in creating our soul and determining our destiny as a higher soul. It personifies the “serpent power” represented in Teth, Key 8, called “Strength”, which is the higher soul’s ability to tame the serpent power and use it for the motivating force of higher ideals. It’s the serpent of temptation that tempted Eve (subconscious), called Nachash (NchSh), whose letters translate into the numbers N = 50; Ch = 8, Sh = 300, for a total of 358 ( which equals 16 = 7), the same value as MShICh – 40 + 300 + 10 + 8 = 358, meaning the Messiah. This gives us a subtle correspondence of its meaning. It’s through temptation that we recognize our weaknesses, and are able to overcome them using Strength, and redeem ourselves as a result. The Devil is actually an aspect of God that’s usually greatly misunderstood by the ignorant and profane. Jesus, as the Messiah, was born in Capricorn, and both the devil and Christ were referred to as “the morning star”, and are polar opposites of each other.

If we break this formula down further and use the Keys of the Tarot to decipher their meaning, we get N = death, CH = Chariot, Sh = Judgment: and M = Hanged Man, Sh = Judgment, I = Hermit, Ch = Chariot, which equal 358. 3 = Empress, 5 = Hierophant, 8 = Strength. I’ll leave that for you to contemplate further on your own. 15 = 6 > represented by the “Lovers” as the sacred union of the two minds to form a harmonious whole. 15 is the summation of numbers 0 – 5 (1+2+3+4+5 = 15), the basic principles of the mind and its true relationship with matter. The word devil is “lived” spelled backwards and is ascribed to “wisdom” – we only learn by living and doing. All knowledge is obtained only through experience. Through self-realization and reason, we exercise our power of choice and will in transforming weaknesses into strengths.

The background of the scene is black, indicating the darkness of ignorance, limitation, and that which is hidden and resides within. Ignorance is the underlying cause of all bondage. The devil himself is a polar-image of the Angel in 14, which is also the caricature over the heads of the Lovers in Key 6. The man and woman are shown with horns and tail and represent the beast-like figures of the ones shown in the Lovers. The two horns represent a divided mind that’s set apart from and work to oppose each other. When human reasoning is based on surface appearances, we become like beasts, and reside in the darkness of illusion. The chain loops that yoke them (5) can be easily removed; their bondage is imaginary and self-maintained. The first stage of spiritual unfoldment comes as awareness of conscious bondage to material circumstances that personify the false conception that we’re bound by material conditions and the false notion that we’re a slave to necessity as chance.

The devil has bat wings, representing the powers of darkness. He has the face of a goat and ears of a donkey, representing obstinacy and the stubbornness of materialism. One side is masculine and the other feminine, he partakes in the characteristics of both sexes. The inverted pentagram, which is the sign of man, suggests a reversal of man’s understanding of his place in the cosmos. The Elements of materialism govern him. It’s only through a lack of using our divine abilities that we keep ourselves in bondage of ignorance and materialism.

The devils hand has all fingers opened with 2 fingers paired forming the sign of Saturn in the palm of the right hand. Saturn is the planet of limitation and inertia, and therefore ignorance. This symbolizes a failure to evolve to higher levels of self-awareness and keeping ourselves bound to the wheel of karma (10). In his left hand a torch burns downward, only lighting the ground. The torch is a phallic symbol and represents the transmission of life from generation to generation. The fiery quality refers to the active force of Mars. It’s the torch of revolution based on the material interpretation of experience. It’s symbolic of the torch of anarchy and terrorism which rule by fear and ignorance.

The devil has a naval (a human product) with the symbol of Mercury just below it. He is a product of faulty observation and superficial reasoning. His feet are the claws of an eagle, representing Scorpio as the misuse of reproductive power and it’s debasement in the service of sensuality. He sits on a half-cube (symbol of reality), and only sees half of reality, knowledge, and partial truth. He perceives only that which is visible and believes in disguises and false fronts.  

The fact that’s seldom realized is that the forces which appear to be our adversaries are always ready to serve us. It’s only through trial and temptation that we get to see into our own hidden nature. Once we realize our inner potential for freedom from being determined by our material conditions, we can begin taking control of our own urges and ability to create our experiences. When we bring higher spiritual knowledge into daily practice, we put forth the effort necessary to liberate ourselves from bondage that’s purely imaginary. The idea of the devil represents “sensation that’s divorced from true understanding”. He brings renewal, because we seldom make any real effort until we experience limitation. It’s only when limitations bother us that we put forth the effort it takes to overcome them through mental use of will, and we act to remove our own chains.

This represents the material elements that bind us to ignorance by controlling our mind to make us “like” them, and we become a beast instead of a divine being that’s wholesome and pure in character. When we live out of the ignorance of our lower, unconscious self, we indulge in physical pleasure without any regard for the consequences it brings, and we bring those consequences upon ourselves as a result, destroying our life, and becoming one with others that are of the same level of consciousness. In order to cultivate higher consciousness we have to overcome our addictions and the temptation to falter in favor of physical pleasures that destroy our virtuous character. This represents “vices” that directly oppose and prevent “virtues”.

Temperance (14), which precedes this one, represents the process of changing our conscious and chemical makeup by letting go of all behaviors born out of purely physical means that takes precedence over us and literally controls us by working through our lower nature. This represents learning how to use our ability to reason, make moral decisions, and use our will in order to neutralize physical impulses, passions, and cravings. As something appeals to our weaknesses and we indulge in them, we recombine our energies with them and they determine us as a result. Whatever we give into out of ignorance or moral weaknesses, we become one with in mind, body, and spirit. All actions require us to become one with an outside force or idea, and we become the “means through which” it expresses as a reality. As we become the expression of that consciousness by becoming one with it, we’re shaped by it accordingly. We have to let go of our weaknesses and transform our addictions in order to transform our lower self to become a clean vessel morally for our Higher Self to naturally inhabit.

This represents creative energy in its most material form. Capricorn occupies the zenith, the most exalted of the signs, and is symbolized by a goat leaping with lust upon the summits of the Earth. Saturn is symbolic of self-hood and perpetuity. It’s the divine madness of spring that has already been foreseen through the meditative madness of winter. His creative energy is veiled with the symbol of the Highest Initiate crowned with a winged globe and twin serpents of Horus and Osiris. Whatever we choose to become one with we use to shape ourselves and our destiny. By learning how to find ecstasy in every phenomenon, no matter how ordinary, we transcend all material limitations.

The devil represents the dumb animal of instinct and impulsiveness. It’s the blind force of instinct that destroys reason and poisons liberty from the lower planes. We alone are responsible for the evil it causes, because it only acts through us. In order to manifest the beast it has to first be allowed to enter into and take form within us, and then be projected outward. In order to create the beast we have to first destroy the man. In Black Magic the devil is the great magical agent employed for evil purposes by a perverted will. It’s the “old serpent” of legend that is the eternal fire of earthly life, the soul of the Earth, and the living center of hell. How we create ourselves by the energies we draw in and use to create ourselves either condemns us to a hell of our own making as the reality born out of our weaknesses and addictions, or it purifies us and promotes our ascension to higher levels of consciousness.

The blind agent of Life energy represented here can be used under different leadership as an instrument for good and evil alike. It’s the minister of angels and prophets and of fairies and sorcerers. It’s the Astral Light of the material plane that has strong magnetic properties, and when evoked and utilized by “reason” are produced harmoniously, but when evoked by madness appear chaotic, disordered, and hideous. It’s the Life force that can be commanded by will and used to create within the material plane in an intelligent and precise manner, and in the opposite manner, it can control us through passions, lust and desire, and utilize our will as the means of creating through and as us.

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.

“The Power of 7” – The Birth of Christ, the New Moon, and Annular Solar Eclipse

In our modern world of excessive materialism we’ve lost the essential meaning of life as a soul. Rituals and festivals of various kinds are designed to take us deeper into the hidden meaning of things where we can tap into the spiritual powers involved. Anytime we have a unique combination of numbers and correlated celestial events, we’re being given a formula whose interpretation according to the laws and principles they represent gives us deep insights into the energies that are actively expressing to produce global events as an evolutionary form of growth that develops all life in new ways.

Just as the full moon of December was marked by a numerical code, so is the new moon on Christmas day and the solar eclipse it forms. When we interpret the symbolism involved to find the deeper meaning, we realize we’re being given a message as a form of prophecy. These celestial messages formed by star systems and heavenly bodies that work together to regulate natural cycles, provide us with insights into the invisible energies at work that are bearing direct influences on the Earth’s plane right now.

These celestial messages also provide us with a “set of instructions” on how to manage our own mental state and activities by consciously embodying these energies and doing the “inner work” involved as a means of calibrating ourselves to the flow of energy. By synchronizing ourselves to cosmic energies through conscious awareness we cooperate in a meaningful way with the events that are being initiated by them. Through a lack of awareness we remain ignorant of them and may have a tendency to work in contradiction of them while missing out on the growth opportunity they provide us with.

When we look at the “date” and time of certain events as an “encoded formula” that symbolizes the laws at work through a dynamic orchestration of celestial events that serve as metaphors for initiating corresponding terrestrial events, we tune into (intuit) a form of prophecy as a “prediction” of future realities. All “realities” are formed out of the universal Law of Cause and Effect as a dynamic relationship between complementary opposites. When we learn how to realize the laws at work in any situation we can predict the outcome of events in a fairly accurate manner. All prophecy is produced by understanding the energies that are actively expressing in any situation as a series of interactive relationships, and playing them out to form the outcome that’s the equivalent of what’s causing it. This relationship is “dynamic” because the “cause” produces an “effect” of an “equal or pronounced nature”, then the cause “reverses polarity” and the “effect” becomes the “cause” that produces another “whole series of corresponding events”. All of reality is produced as a self-perpetuating flow of energy that acts on itself to create itself. This cycle repeats infinitely as the 8th principle of “realization”. 

Sacred Sciences are formed as a “symbolic system” of correspondences that are all correlated with one another and provide the means for decoding what presents itself as an encoded formula. The Sacred Science of Gematria, Sacred Geometry, and Astrology, form a dynamic system of correspondences with the Archetypes of the Tarot, which serves as a Key for discerning the principles of the Kabala. Because Christmas (25 = 7) is symbolized by an “Archetypal figure” as the “birth of a savior”, we’ll start the interpretation with the Archetype associated with the number “7”of the Tarot, formed out of all correlating systems of thought. Just as our birth number breaks down to a numerical formula of the energies actively expressing in this lifetime as our “deeds”, we’ll handle the idea of Christmas as the “birth number” of a savior, with the year being insignificant to the equation because it’s “0”.

The numeric formula of 25 breaks down to 7 (2 + 5 = 7). 7 is represented by the Hebrew letter “Cheth”, which is symbolized by the “Chariot” or more precisely by the “Charioteer” of the Tarot. Like all numbers that are designed to represent universal principles, 7 represents the intrinsic value of “8”, which issues forth naturally from it as a “self-perpetuating” cause and effect relationship that’s continuous. Cheth means a “field enclosed by a fence”, which represents a specific location, area that’s cultivated by us, and our “territory” as the owner of our own creations. Whatever we create, we protect and defend. We “own” them. They represent our personal creations as the basis for our life experiences. It’s symbolized as an area closed off and “cultivated” by the mind/soul. It also implies shielding, safeguard, refuge, and safety. It’s symbolic of the “house” (of Beth) where the soul/mind is located in an “empty shell” as a shelter that serves as a “vehicle” (Gimel-2) that allows for psychological “dominion” within our self-created “kingdom”. A field is closed off and cultivated through “work” as our everyday “deeds” and activities.  Whatever we “pay attention to” we cultivate as a reality in our imagination and serve as a vehicle for manifesting as a reality.

The Nature of Light and Sound

The sense associated with 7 is “speech”. Speech is the function by which we “introduce limitations” as the means necessary for “defining” an idea by shaping it with attributes that give it certain characteristics.  As we shape an idea in our mental sphere (3) we create it’s “constitution” (4) as an organized field of information by “reverberating” it. Sound as the “spoken word” organizes light into a distinct pattern, and then continues to develop it through a chain of associated thoughts that imbue it with specific attributes and characteristics. As we shape an idea with certain characteristics we “develop it” in terms of how it functions and behaves as a means of applying it to our everyday life in order to create with it. All material forms are defined by their active aspects and potential for producing certain types of experiences. Form and function are always the exact equivalent of each other. Our “character” as intrinsic values that we’ve cultivated forms the basis for “all” of our actions and natural behaviors. There are no exceptions to this rule.

The mental function associated with 7 is “will” as “the spoken word” that serves to shape reality in the “imagination”. As we think (silent speech) and speak we shape and define ourselves through our reality. Words are like fences that impose limitations and collapse a wave-form of infinite potential into a particular idea as the use of our will in creating our reality. As we speak, whether internally as thought or externally as speech, we shape the meaning of our words in our imagination as a material (light) form. This material form is magnetized energetically with “sensation” and begins vibrating at the frequency of the form as an archetype and metaphor that serves to organize the light of the outer reality to be of the same thematic pattern.

Ideas formed in the imagination as visual thoughts shaped with sensory details that define it in specific terms, form a vibratory frequency as the minds (souls) ability to order and structure reality as a personal creation and “request” for a corresponding outer reality. Words organize information as a “field of speech”. Words have a preservative and protective power. The “right use of language” is the means of accurately creating with archetypal energies in a safe and intentional manner. When we extend the power of speech from words spoken outwardly to the internally spoken words of thought, we can see the importance of “right speech” in creating our self and our reality. It’s our silent thoughts that form the basis for all of our outer speech.

The Intelligence associate with Cheth is the house of influence. Words form the etheric body as the abode of inflowing cosmic powers. Human personality (body consciousness) is like a fenced in area of consciousness in which universal forces are drawn in, focused, and concentrated to form personalized reality as a direct experience. These cosmic forces flow into the personality (physical form) from the greater atmosphere beyond its boundaries. What is formed initially in “silent speech” of thought concentrates the cosmic forces and flows outward through the personality as self-expression and manifestation. All physical entities are formed internally first through the imagination as the “light body” (etheric double) that serves as both a blueprint and self-assembling mechanism that re-organizes the outer to match the inner. Whatever we think about in an intense manner forms the basis for what we “see” as our outer reality of manifestation.

As with all two-digit numbers we’re provided with a “formula” that represents the basic principles involved in producing an outcome of a specific nature. 2 = Gimel (High Priestess) where “universal memory” is drawn into the personality, forming thoughts that shape the Astral Light of the 4 Elements into imaginary realities of the same kind and type. 5 = the Mind/Soul as the Etheric element of the Mind that projects a thought-form into the subconscious mind of the personality as the means for organizing the 4 Elements into a “field of organized information” that then becomes a natural part of its outer reality. Once an idea is formed into a fundamental part of our outer reality it sets the stage for producing an “experience” that we then associate and identify with as the means of shaping ourselves “through” it and “as” it. 

5 represents the principle of “mind over matter” as the “self-assembling principle” of the mind that shapes an idea into a sensory thought-form that forms an energetic blueprint for organizing the outer light of the Astral Plane (sunlight) into the same idea. We receive ideas as thoughts from a universal source (sun-stars) that form our inner light (Moon) as a reflection and projection of solar energies. 5 is the number of our Higher Self (cosmic mind) that exists on the unformed plane of consciousness (invisible thought) in its “potential state” and is what acts to organize it into thematic ideas on the lower plane of manifestation.

When archetypal ideas as cosmic memory (2) is injected into the lower material mind by the Higher Self (5), it comes as thoughts that are adapted to the personality of the body and shaped (modified) in the imagination to produce the “etheric shell” (form) that draws in the cosmic forces associated with that idea, forming a vibratory frequency that organizes the outer reality (4) as a reflection and projection of the inner reality (3). The Mind is the “organizing principle” that’s self-assembling, self-actualizing, and self-perpetuating. Ideas form thoughts that act as a “seed” that’s planted in the fertile ground of the imagination where they’re gestated and developed (adapted and modified) into a unique possibility for constructing as an outer experience of reality.

The Sacred Marriage of the Triad and Tetrad

7 is considered the “sacred number of creation” because it represents the divine union of the Triad (Mind/Soul) with the Tetrad (physical body), which provides the hierarchal means for creating ourselves as a physical being. The triangle is the geometric shape that symbolizes the 3-fold nature of the mind and soul, and the square or cube symbolizes the 4 Elements of the material world, and when the triangle is placed on top of the square, it forms a “house” as the living temple of the divine soul. It’s symbolic of the upper 3 chakras of the mind merging with the 4 lower chakras of the body to form a coherent unit of light and sound.

7 represent the principle of both light and sound which form a “coherent field of consciousness” that functions as a singularity. As we speak, we organize light into the images of the words.  Metaphors, archetypes, and symbolic ideas are malleable patterns that can be adapted and modified in an infinite number of ways to produce correlating patterns as equivocal variations that all still work harmoniously as a waveform or holo-movement. Patterns of light (matter) only serve as “empty shells” (phantoms) that are magnetic in nature and act to “draw in” the universal intelligence of the cosmic mind which vibrates, animates, and expresses through it. A form can only serve as the means for magnetizing the energies appropriate to that form.

Whatever thoughts we consistently form as our normal way of thinking is how we “tune ourselves” to the specific cosmic energies that can express as a reality “through” and “as” that form. When we dwell in negative thoughts that cause pain and suffering, we act as a magnet for acquiring more of those same types of experiences. All “experience” is experience of our “selves” as both an inner and outer reality of the same nature. Our “inner light” comes as the absorption and reflection of “solar light”. Our thoughts are the active use of our “will to create”. As we call forth and create our outer reality, we create an experience of ourselves within and as that reality, and we form it into the cosmic memory that then serves to shape us energetically (spiritually).

As human souls of a higher nature than the animal kingdom, we are “creative beings” who create our reality through our thoughts. Whatever ideas we connect with, draw in, and dwell in continuously we literally use as the means of creating. Cosmic energies serve our Higher Self and vibrate whatever idea we form in our mind as a sensory reality that invokes a corresponding emotion. The emotion that comes as a natural response to our thinking amplifies and intensifies the frequency of the thoughts while transmitting it telepathically through the Earth’s atmosphere (field of astral light), impregnating the space around us. As it’s radiated outward as a projection of our inner reality, it acts to organize the same type of reality on a larger and more inclusive scale, providing us with the “experience” we requested through our thoughts.

We don’t “pray” or request a certain type of experience in a momentary act of concentrating on an idea for 5 minutes that often contradicts or extends outside of our normal thoughts, but exist in a constant state of prayer as the intimate connection with our Higher Self. Our body is “tuned energetically” by our mind and acts as an antenna with a two-way transmission. As we think, feel, and emote, we form our “etheric body” (8) which serve as a spatial map for organizing our entire experience of reality. Thoughts are the seeds for producing things. Whatever seeds we sow, we also harvest. Our higher power isn’t something that’s outside of us that we ask for intervention from that that will transform our reality to a better one that’s in direct opposition to our ordinary thoughts. Our higher power is something we possess internally that’s both inside and outside of us as our “mind”. Our mind as our thoughts is how we use our higher abilities to create our own reality. As we think by picturing the reality of our thoughts in a concentrative manner we calibrate ourselves to the energetic frequency of those light-forms and act to draw in corresponding complementary cosmic energies. We tend to think that the higher powers exist outside of and beyond our grasp, when in fact we “are” the higher power creating the reality of our thoughts from a dissociated state.

The Charioteer – King/Priest/Warrior

The Chariot and Charioteer represent the principle of 7 as the king/priest/warrior (3-fold nature) that forms his kingdom, and his vehicle used for protecting his kingdom. The king is pictured on/in a chariot formed out of a cube (Tetrad), with 4 pillars holding a canopy of stars overhead. His crown is comprised of 3 stars (one large and two small), he has golden hair (solar) and is wearing a breast plate (protective shield) with the emblem of a square formed into a cross (quartered), holding a scepter in one hand and a globe in the other, pointing down at the 2 sphinxes pulling his chariot, forming a triangle. The 2 sphinxes are positioned with their bodies posed away from each other with their heads turned looking at each other. One sphinx is black and the other white, representing the two pillars of the temple known as Jakin and Boaz, which support and maintain the veil of illusion (separation).

This symbolizes that we all form and rule our own kingdom by organizing the cosmic forces of the 4 Elements through our will. In the Kabala 7 is represented in the sphere of “Hod” (the emanation of Chokmah on the lower plane), and is the complementary aspect of “Netzach” on the same plane. Hod represents the intellect or self-conscious aspect (masculine) of the lower material mind, and acts to “seed” the subconscious (feminine) with an idea as an “emotional thought” that the subconscious then produces as an outer reality of the same nature, allowing for “realization” (8) of our own creation. The power of the will lies in the imagination, which is what forms the inner etheric blueprint for creating as an outer reality. The mental activities represented by the principle of will are carried out on the subconscious level of constructing reality. 

Through simple self-study you’ll realize that your thoughts and speech are predominately subconscious in nature, which means they come naturally without intention or actual awareness. Our vocabulary and how we structure our thoughts come through an unconscious process of association. All of our sentences, our style for expressing ideas, and figures of speech all take place “below” the self-conscious level, which means without our direct awareness. Our subconscious, which is the same aspect of the mind shared by all of humanity, is seeded not only by our own words, but also by the words of others that we “take in automatically” (without awareness) and form in our imagination as an experience. As we continue to think about something we develop into a well-defined reality and it serves to adjust our vibration through the emotions associated with them.

Cheth is ruled by Cancer, a cardinal water sign, where we can see the hard outer shell (house) of the crab as an enclosed area that provides safety and protection. Cancer is ruled by the Moon (Key 2), and the planet Jupiter (Key 10 as “fortune”) is exalted therein. Our fortune or “destiny” is determined and called forth as our reality through our thoughts and speech. Cancer governs the chest (a fence of bones) and stomach as our “gut instinct”. The chest (heart center) connects the upper 3 energy centers of reception, imagination, and speech, to the lower 3 centers of emotion, instinct, and reproduction. Cancer is a psychic, receptive sign that’s said to be endowed with a tenacious memory (Key 2).

Speech is not only composed of “definitions” but also embodies mental imagery and gives form to a “stream of consciousness” formed out of memory. The 7th subtle energy center of the body is the “crown” and (represented by a lotus with a 1,000 petals) acts as a “receiver and transducer” for cosmic memory where a wave or field of archetypal information is “collapsed” around a “single possibility” as a form of “natural selection”. As the wave is collapsed into a single possibility for creating it’s transformed into 2 petals as the “winged sphere” of light and sound. As it’s drawn down into the various energy centers of the body it’s adapted to the mental paradigm of the individual and modified into a unique variation as a personal creation. As it’s drawn into the 3rd eye it’s divided into polar aspects as an inner voice that forms an equivalent inner vision.

As we conceive an image in our mind that’s a “reflection” of solar energy, we continue to modify it by thinking about it and defining it with words. The Moon is a symbol of our lower nature, and does not possess a light of its own, but acts to merely reflect the light of the sun, as the means of illuminating the dark. As The well-formed idea is projected into our heart center it connects us with that same idea in everything around us (heart center is the connector, transmitter, and receiver of the material plane). It acts to form an electromagnetic field that serves as the carrier wave for the emotional state of the idea. Ideas are transmitted fluently on the material plane as emotion, where we absorb them and “reproduce” the reality they’re programmed with as an internal thought-form. The holographic principle demonstrated in the Geometric symbol of the Dyad as the Vesica Pisces or “womb of creation” (2), carries through to all levels of creation as what merges cosmic forces with ideas (3) that form reality as their offspring (4). The 7th chakra is a “receiver” for the vertical transfer of information between the higher and lower plane, and the heart chakra (4th) is what connects us to that same idea on the material plane.

3 + 4 =7 > imagination seeded with cosmic memory forms our material reality as a projection or hologram. 4 is the number of order and measure of the 4 Elements. The starry canopy over the Charioteer’s head is held up by 4 pillars divided into 2 equal parts. This signifies the Hermetic axiom, “that which is above is like that which is below”. His chariot (mobile house) is pulled by 2 sphinxes of a complementary nature formed by a human head and chest on an animal body. The division between man and animal takes place at the solar plexus (navel). The overall shape formed by the king/charioteer standing upright directly above the 2 sphinxes of a lower plane, with each hand holding an instrument that’s pointed at each sphinx, forms a triangle as the Higher Self directing and utilizing the 2 lower aspects of the animal-elemental mind to form his kingdom within which he resides and rules.

This is the same triangular configuration as the Hierophant (Key 5) which shows the Pope administering over 2 children as the “keys” to the “self” within a material form. The starry canopy over his head represents the celestial forces and their descent into the physical plane through the activity of the 4 Elements, which is the essence and substance of all material manifestation. The energies of constellations as star-systems produce  influences that serve to transforms material manifestation through the injection of subtle energies. These “ideas” are received by the subconscious of those whose mind are properly tuned, and form a unique variation in each individual through a natural process of adaptation (5), forming specialized roles in acting out the same overall idea as a group forming a joint experience of reality. The mind as the Higher Self is the principle of conception and gestation that births reality out of organized fields of light. 7 is referred to in Sacred Geometry as the “enchanted virgin” because it has no exact measurement and each time its drawn or constructed forms a variation while still holding true to the same basic shape. For this reason, 7 is also associated with the principle of creativity and self-expression.

25 represent the relationship that exists between 2 and 5 in forming the outcome of 7. The principle represented by 2 is cosmic memory as archetypes that are conceived, formed, and birthed through the Vesica Pisces of the mind. The triad is formed internally as the etheric-elemental hologram that serves as a spatial blueprint for constructing a corresponding outer reality. As we receive an electrical impulse (vibration as a pattern) we form it in our mind as a gaseous light-form that acts to draw in and gives rise to sensation of a fluid-emotional nature, that’s concentrated and solidified into a material reality of an equivalent nature. Creation comes as an injection of cosmic energies into the subconscious plane of the Earth and acts to transform and evolve our reality as a global consciousness. It represents the “Higher Will” creating through the 2 lower aspects of the animal mind.

New Moon and Solar Eclipse

Just as we had the full moon marked by 12/12 twice, we have Christmas 14 (5) days later as the New Moon in Capricorn. During a new moon the astral forces of the Earth are at a minimal and we’re able to transcend or resist their magnetic attraction long enough to “conceive” of a higher, celestial force. The womb is empty and ripe for conception of a new seed. We “begin“ all new creations during a new moon. All new goals are set in place and initiated during the “darkest night” of the month and year. When the New Moon comes at the winter solstice it symbolizes the “darkest night of the year” when a “savior is born”. This idea is represented by the “dark night of the soul”, where the pattern of an old manifestation disintegrates and our life seems to completely fall apart, making us ripe for conceiving a whole new idea that will take its place.

This marks the moment of true transformation as a form of “rebirth” that’s undertaken through conscious use of will and in a decisive and deliberate manner. This signifies that the energies represented by 12/12 will act as a seed for the gestation and birth of new ideas. This New Moon is also going to be an annular solar eclipse, which means the Moon is the furthest away from the Earth, and will act to block out the light of the sun for a short period of time. The exact time of the New Moon will be 12:14 am on the 26th, which indicates both the dissolution of a whole cycle (12) and the initiation of a new one that will serve to change the vibration (14) of the collective unconscious of humanity. This eclipse and the New Moon happen in Capricorn, which has the energies of growth, abundance, and good luck that comes from detaching from the material addictions that keep us in chains. So it indicates a “blessing in disguise” that initially seems traumatic but will ultimately produce positive change.

The Magical Key of 7 – Putting it all Together

This indicates an ideal time to embody new qualities and set new goals for your life that will be infused with very positive energies. 7 represents the active use of our will to transform ourselves into a purified state of a higher nature. The cube of the chariot represents the Philosopher’s Stone as a throne and vehicle for creating by seeding our own mind with ideas that are turned into ideals. We can only act to draw in and integrate energies that resonate with our state of mind. The breastplate with the triangle engraved on it is the knowledge of Divine Things which renders the wearer invulnerable to human assaults. We’re given a formula for transformation from a lower state of unconscious creation to a higher one through what’s called the 7 deadly sins and 7 divine virtues, which are actually polar opposites of each other, and correspond to the 7 planets which are the archetypal energies that make up the human psyche. These 7 sins (errors) and virtues operate according to the Laws of Polarity (2) as opposite aspects of the same idea separated by a process of graduation from one extreme to another.

The 7 planetary aspects of complementary forces that can be used as the means of transformation from one state to another are represented as: Sun = faith > pride; Moon = hope > avarice; Venus = charity > luxury; Mars = Strength as superior to wrath; Mercury = prudence which is hostile to idleness; Saturn = temperance opposed to gluttony; Jupiter = justice opposed to envy. These are the prophetic keys of the 7 spirits where humanity subsists under the laws of growth and development that’s undertaken through active use of our higher capacities of self-realization, choice, and active use of will in order to manifest the reality of our decisions. The Kabalistic book of the Apocalypse is sealed with “7 seals” each of which represent a “church” as the “stars” of the etheric body which are regulated by the higher mind. These correlate with the keys of the ternary (3), quaternary (4), septenary (7), and duodenary (12), and are utilized through active application of the 7 Hermetic Principles. 7 is decisive in all things. If we haven’t been able to manifest a desired experience it’s because we haven’t really made the decision to do so, and are still negotiating it through conflicting desires and ideas.

7 represents the equal unity of the first and last principle as the alliance between the spoken word and manifestation of the reality indicated by the words. The alliance between the triad and tetrad is represented by the 4 letter name of God as the Tetragrammaton (4 pillars of the temple). 7 is the very nature of reality as the substance of the mind creating it through thought and speech. There are 7 colors of the prism, 7 notes in a musical scale, 7 planets, 7 chords of a lyre, 7 primary human emotions, 7 metals of alchemy, and 7 spirits of Cosmic Consciousness, all of which form a dynamic series of correspondences as a chain-of-association that connects them all in principle. 7 is the active use of will that brings realization as a personal creation. We’re being called upon to learn how to use our own will as the means for transforming ourselves from a lower to higher state of consciousness by managing our lower mind and determining what ideas we allow into our mind to gestate and form our soul’s destiny, and which ones we censor and keep out.

“12 / 12” – Interpreting the Mathematical Code of the 13th Full Moon that’s Ushering in the New Decade of 2020

All numbers represent laws and principles as creative processes and archetypal patterns that are acting to organize and orchestrate the entire material world. There’s no such thing as chance, and nothing ever comes randomly without a reason. Every single effect has a cause as the reason why it exists. What we write off as chance is simply a part of a bigger pattern that’s playing out on a scale so large we can’t recognize it through our immediate experiences. Nothing happens until something moves, and nothing moves without a mover. All activity comes as a part of a larger sequence of events that result through a chain reaction or a “holomovement” formed out of a dynamic interwoven infrastructure. This idea is commonly represented by a drop of water that hits the surface of a large body of water that’s considerably larger in scale and magnitude, which produces a ripple effect as concentric waves that expand in complexity and magnitude, affecting every single point in the water consistently as a wave movement. This idea is also represented as the metaphor of the “spider web” traditionally used in Native American folklore and allegories. 

While 12 is a very powerful number in terms of the principle it represents, this article will highlight only the features that are significant in terms of how they’re being used in the modern day context as a date that marks what can potentially be a significant event in terms of the process it sets in motion and acts to help facilitate. The most basic interpretation of the laws represented by the number “12” is what we can call “transcendent laws”. This is because they operate on a higher and more unified level and encompass the “totality” of the lower plane of our material manifestation represented by numbers 1-10.

12 is a primary number of “measurement” and “time”, especially as it pertains to larger, whole patterns that span the entire space-time continuum. It represents the 12 parts or conscious aspects that make up a “whole”. This principle is most commonly represented through the 12 archetypes of the zodiac that are combined in varying degrees and potencies to form a whole person, as well as the outer reality of that person (society). These universal patterns can be thought of as “themes” that makeup larger patterns that are comprised of the diverse roles being played out by the 12 astrological archetypes that makeup the subconscious mind of humanity. So any event represented by the number 12 is going to be a global event that will affect all of humanity as a whole. It represents the higher plane of subtle energy where “causes” produce a pronounced effect over a larger period of time and serve to transform existing patterns by initiating a new phase in its overall development.

Numbers that come as a date and time have no significance outside of serving as a “marker” for recognizing the onset of new energy that contains a new pattern being introduced into and infiltrating the Earth’s plane from the cosmos. Subtle energy is what forms the etheric blueprint for organizing and orchestrating the material plane that rises out of it as a holographic projection. The soul is the astral body (body made of starlight) of subtle energy that exists as a form of “tincture” made by combining the 12 archetypal powers to produce a pattern as a formula of qualities. All planetary bodies are “souls” whose energies form an archetypal matrix as its level and type of universal consciousness that emanates or projects a unique version of reality. What we refer to as the “group mind” of humanity is the “subconscious” aspect of the mind that we share with all of Nature and life on this planet. It’s the “collective unconscious” that’s made up of cosmic influences from the star systems (constellations) of the “heavens”. All of life on the planet, including humanity, is “operated” to produce a unified reality as interwoven patterns by interjecting an idea in “seed” form into the subconscious mind of the planetary soul.

12 represents a “whole” as a larger pattern that makes up our entire material reality. So it indicates a global event set in motion by the interjection of new cosmic energies. This means they will come as dreams, intuition, and new realizations that come from inspired thoughts that seem to come to us out of nowhere (absorbed from the atmosphere). We won’t call them synchronicities, because the minute you call it something you act to define it through the set of limitations you impose on it, turning it into a personalized version of a universal idea. Influences of a cosmic nature effect everyone in a different way based on how these energies are adapted and systematically modified by the individual mind acting to receive them and bring them into expression through daily activities born out of their mindset.

12 is comprised of 1+2, and is still a part of the plane represented by “1” that is shaped out of the 10 primary universal laws, as the plane that transcends or rises above it. It represents the polar opposite or parallel plane of the lower one that precedes it and forms the constitution in which it serves to transform. Everything operates out of the action caused by the relationship (2) of polar opposites. 12 represents the process of development given the title of “initiation” as the path of the Adept, which is commonly represented as a spiritual master that’s accompanied by 12 disciples or assistants. The master is the 13th  as the exaltation that results from harmoniously balancing the 12 individual aspects into a unified whole. 13 is the number of transformation that acts to free the soul from the self-imposed limitations of an illusion, also referred to as “death”.  

The Relationship between 12 and 13

The wheel of the zodiac is comprised of 12 spheres of consciousness as attributes that are held together or projected out of a 13th sphere as the central point that holds them together forming a greater “whole”. All spiritual masters are portrayed as having 12 disciples who assist them in their process of transformation and ascension. These 12 disciples represent the archetypes of the zodiac utilized in the creation of the master as an ascended being of a divine nature. This is accomplished by harmonizing all internal aspects of our “self” that normally contrast and compete with each other into a harmonious whole. We “create ourselves” by expressing all of our inner qualities to produce a reality that acts as a mirror and reflects back to us hidden aspects of ourselves that haven’t been properly integrated to form a whole, as well as the known aspects of ourselves.  Archetypes are the primary form of cosmic intelligence that the subconscious draws on as attributes that structure it mentally and determine how it functions emotionally. Structure always indicates function, and function is a process of creation.

The 12-fold pattern of constellations is used in every form of organization and was traditionally used as the means of organizing communities, tribes, and clans. A whole nation (person) is comprised of 12 houses of the zodiac (wheel) that gave each one a distinct personality and function that all operated as a unified whole. This is indicated by the “circular formations” constructed at sacred sites that monitored star systems as they rotated through the heavens that brought distinct influences to the Earth allowing us to predict future events and prepare for them as a result. Each of the different constellations represent an archetype as a pattern and process comprised of different attributes as “personality traits” that altered the events of the material plane through a series of corresponding correlated events that took place on a global scale.

This principle is illustrated in the allegory of the 12 tribes of 12,000 each that formed the 144,000 souls that served as the “root race” that seeded humanity. 12 x 12 (both date and time are a double number) = 144. Four is the number of physical reality as our “constitution” that forms all of the activities (ruled by Mars) that result in material manifestation. A double 4 indicates the constitution of two planes interacting to form One. 1+4+4=9  > the number of completion as a state of perfection. 1+2+1+2 or 3+3 =6, half of 12. The Hexad (6) is the most fundamental “structure” of material manifestation, and is the geometric structure of both crystals and DNA, which make up the entire material world of the mineral, chemical, plant, and animal kingdoms. 6 in the Tarot and Kabbalah represent the human soul operating on a higher plane through the faculty of the 2 lower minds of the material plane also known as the subconscious of the group mind that we not only share with all of humanity, but with all of Nature as well. The subconscious is the mind that produces and contains material reality as a mental construct and projection. The mind itself in each aspect is represented by 3 as a triangular orientation of a 3-fold nature, where one exists on a higher level and the other two on a lower level as polar opposites of each other.

We can think of 12 as representing a larger pattern as a greater whole that acts to reorganize the structure of the entire material world and how it operates. It injects an idea into the greater mind of humanity that serves to set a whole new sequence of events into motion that will span over a extended period of time and ultimately act to completely transform the pattern currently being acted out. All patterns are transformed through the incorporation of new ideas that serve to modify it into a variation. These ideas come as “influences” because they’re psychological in nature and will be incorporated uniquely by every individual who will play them out in a different way within their daily life, while still holding true to the overall pattern being played out by society as a whole.

The Law of 3

12 in the ultimate sense is a combination of the laws represented by 1 and 2, which are projections of each other. This formula represents attention as will that enters into and activates a cosmic memory (archetypal matrix) that forms an idea in its potential (unformed) state, which is formed into a “seed” that’s projected from a higher plane into the imagination (womb) of the subconscious on the lower plane, where it gestates and is grown into a detailed reality. 3 is the number that represents the imagination as the womb of the material world. 1+2=3. Three is the first “true number” of the material plane because this is the stage where an invisible idea is shaped into an astral form in the imagination. This astral form of the imagination made out of liquid light, forms the “etheric blueprint” for organizing its material duplicate as a corresponding outer projection.

 A double 12 as two 3’s = 6. This represents the balanced state of the two polar aspects of the subconscious and self-conscious to produce a state of equilibrium as a “functional third”. The Hexad is the primary geometric structure of DNA and crystalline matrices formed out of the programming inherent in DNA. This is represented by interlaced triangles oriented in different directions. It can be thought of as a “polar shift” that re-orientates us in terms of what plane we draw information from. Parallel (polarized) planes that overlap each other exist in polarity with each other as a “relationship”, represented by 2, which serves as the basis for birthing new realities through the Vesica Pisces of the Dyad (forms an interference pattern). All reality is formed out of the relationship we form with different aspects of ourselves as an inner and outer reality comprised of the same archetypal consciousness.

12 +12 = 24 = 6. The double number not only indicates an emphasis as amplification, but changes the equation from 3 to 6, indicating a different effect of a pronounced nature. All activity that takes place through the group mind acts to program our DNA, which we also share in common with all biological life forms in Nature. It’s the subtle body as the two minds in a balanced state that forms the blueprint for spatially organizing the material matrix, produced as an emanation or holographic projection “through” DNA. 3 is the number of the mind, which operates as 3 aspects on 2 planes (1+2) and whose creative capacity lies in the imagination, represented by 3, and is what serves to “program” our DNA through our “perception” of the reality formed in our imagination. 1 is the higher mind that projects into the 2 lower aspects of the same mind giving it a pattern to manifest.

The Full Moon

As stated earlier, there’s a natural relationship that exists between 12 and 13. 12 is a solar number where time is measured as the 12 months that make up a year, in which approximately 13 lunations take place. The Moon acts to absorb and reflect the light of the sun, and is what regulates all of life on the planet through magnetic energy. 13 represents the process of death as the passing away of certain energies that have exhausted their expression, in order to form new ones in their place. The body and its consciousness are formed out of the 12 archetypes which combine to form a crystalized structure that projects a certain type of reality and experiences, which are then absorbed by the soul as it sheds the body in death.

13 represents death of the old to allow the conception and growth of the new. It represents the etheric plane as the natural domain of the soul on a higher plane that works through lunar influences to organize the activities of Nature on the material plane. Lunar forces are what “operate” and set in motion all the natural tendencies and instinctual processes of Nature. 12 is the greater whole that’s organized and animated through the etheric blueprint of the harmonious balance of the 2 minds by the higher aspect of the soul. During a full moon the Earth’s magnetic (astral) energies are at a peak and produce a pronounced effect on the subconscious of planetary consciousness. All instinctual activities of Nature are initiated and regulated through lunar cycles formed from sunlight (starlight).

This indicates that the subconscious of the entire material plane is being impregnated with a new pattern that will ultimately restructure it and change how if functions as a whole. 1 is solar, 2 is lunar, and 3 is the unification as a whole. When the archetypal matrix is altered by pulsating energies that produce new emphasis as exalted influences, society as a whole begins expressing in new ways, and a natural sequence of events are set into motion that eventually act to transform reality.

12+12+12+12=48, material reality (4) as magnetic forces are altered and tamed through strength of will (8), and made into a passive vehicle for higher forms of expression. It’s only in overcoming the magnetic attraction of instinctual energies that we attain self-mastery. We can only control what doesn’t control us. 4+8=12, the number of the initiate and a reversed orientation that walks contrary to the manifest world. All great spiritual masters have 12 disciples that they minister to, making them the 13th, as the one who “transcends” the illusion of death. These changes will cause the current illusions of mass deception to begin dying and falling away allowing a new idea to be birthed in its place. We can’t build a new reality out of the existing one; we can only remodel it into a variation of the same idea. It has to completely crumble and fall apart, its foundation destroyed, the ground reworked, and a new footprint laid down in its place. This means there’s a rough road ahead that’s going to bring significant changes in society as a whole. The signs appear in Sagittarius, which gives us clues as to the nature of the new influences and it will serve to modify the current pattern being played out.

2020 – The Birth of a New Decade

This 12-12 event acts to summarize our current era while ushering in a new one. We’re entering a new decade represented by another double number. 20 as a general rule represents moving to a higher level as a double 10 (complete cycle or level). 20+20=40, the number that represents the time frame needed to break a habit while instilling a new one. It’s the number of “purging”, cleansing, and purifying, as the means of creating a new reality (4). 2+2=4, the rational number of material reality. Here again, 2 represents the Dyad as the relationship that introduces a new influence as an archetypal pattern that serves to produce a new type of material manifestation as a global transformation. This is the number of subtle, spiritual energies that precede and act to seed the subconscious mind and alter manifestation of the whole. New realizations are going to take place that will reveal ideas that are being covertly acted out and set a whole new series of activities and events into motion that will move us from one phase of development into another one.

20 represents what’s referred to as the “universal Medicine” as a purification process that cleanses the soul of illusions produced out of weakness that are toxic and destructive, as a spiritual rebirth or awakening. It’s transformation necessary for ascension to a higher plane of consciousness that operates as a singularity rather than as fragmented parts that are divided into competing classifications. This process of transcendence is facilitated by reversing polarity as the relationship between the active and passive aspects of the material mind, where the active (masculine) component is made passive, so that the passive (feminine) aspect can be impregnated by a higher power that’s not “ego oriented”. In other words we “reverse” what plane we connect with and draw information from as the means for creating. We move from allowing ourselves to be programmed and controlled by the earthly forces of humanity as “mass consciousness”, and instead begin taking direction from higher forms of intelligence as a form of “waking up” to our true nature as divine, sovereign beings. We begin utilizing our lower mind by bringing it into the service of our higher mind, which oversees and conducts the activities of the entire lower plane through purely mental means.

Bringing it all Together

These combined symbols serve as a “marker” in time that lets us know we’re moving into a new phase of an even greater pattern that will act to change the very structure, function, and order of society as a whole. As with all subtleties, this will come as a shift in consciousness that sets a whole new sequence of events into motion from every level of society because it comes through purely mental means. It’s the subtle plane (2) that serves as the blueprint for organizing the material plane (4). All reality is birthed through the womb of the Dyad (Vesica Pisces) as a relationship that’s formed with different aspects of the “self” (12 archetypes of Human Psyche). The higher plane overlaps the lower, producing and interference pattern (Hexad) that modifies the frequency being vibrated through polar opposites. “As above, so below, and as below, so above, in the wondrous workings of the One thing”. All reality is produced as a reflection and projection of organized energy (consciousness) from the higher plane of subtle energy.

The archetypal matrix of the Earth is being altered through the exaltation of energies in Sagittarius, and it’s going to modify the pattern that’s currently being played out on a global level. Astral influences of star-systems in the heavens govern the activities of the world and move us through different phases of an evolutionary process. 12 is related to the measurement of time and how things are organized spatially as an all-encompassing whole. An injection of Sagittarius energy as an archetypal influence is being injected into the group mind of the planetary soul, which will be necessary in order to ultimately facilitate the process of ascension by moving us into a new phase or stage of the overall process we’re currently engaged in.

This event is going to introduce new active properties into the “tincture” of the group mind that will actively change how it expresses. This will transform the manifestations produce in the last decade to form a new vibration of the decade we’re moving into. This will most likely come about as subtle changes in consciousness that will bring about dynamic changes in the way we perceive and behave. Our reality only changes when we change. All change comes from the inside as inspired thoughts that are imagined as an outer reality. Existing patterns are only transformed through the injection of new ones. We are all the expression of the group mind we share in common, and form reality through behaviors and what activities we naturally engage in as a whole group. When we begin acting as a single race with a single purpose we’ll evolve ourselves to a higher plane of existence.

Transformation requires death of the old in order to give birth to the new. Destruction is a necessary phase of transformation required in order to build something new in its place. The “veil of ignorance”, which exists between 2 poles or pillars, is going to continue to drop revealing the covert actions taking place behind closed doors as a “secret society” who thrives by feeding off of others. As deception is uncovered and revealed, it will require action on our part in order to obliterate it, so new transparent systems can be erected in their place that serve the good of everyone. This change will come as realizations that produce new awareness and spawns new ways of perceiving the world. Through new perceptions we will act collectively to re-inform the DNA of our bodies that’s used to structure all living organisms on a global scale and new crystalline structures of a pure and pristine nature will begin forming that rejuvenates life.

Things will become exaggerated and intensify before they can be resolved. Deception and corruption will become increasingly apparent as people begin waking up and speaking out. Anyone who continues to cling to the old ways produced out of a corrupt world system, declaring their loyalty to the establishment, will be taken down with it. Only those who are able to “clearly see” the deception and are no longer fooled by it and take action towards creating it’s resolution will participate in what will result in ascension to a higher plane of unity as a utopian society of highly conscious beings. A great thinning process is taking place that will sort out those who are fully awake and aware, and those who choose to remain asleep and delusional.

Personal Existence and the Relationship between the Subconscious and Self-Conscious Mind

Reality as a personal (bodily) existence comes as a manifestation of the relationship between the subconscious and self-conscious aspects of the mind. Both of these aspects exist as “modes” of universal consciousness. What we form as our “personality” on the material plane has no actual separate existence from all of humanity while in the material plane because we all share the same subconscious mind. What we refer to as the “mind” is an invisible field of encoded information that naturally acts to give rise to an entire Eco-system.  

Our subconscious is an aspect of the “collective unconscious” that’s inherent in all of Nature and is formed out of the Earth’s Soul or material mind as what we traditionally call our “lower self” or “animal soul” of pure instinct, which is driven primarily by emotions, passions, and impulses. The entire lower plane of material manifestation is “of” the subconscious which acts to birth the self-conscious aspect of the same mind through a growth process that moves us from an experience of unity to one of perceived separation.

The self-conscious aspect of the material mind is an outgrowth of the subconscious and is birthed (exists) fully “within” the body and ultimately serves to form our “identity” as the body and personality of our conditioning. While our soul is within the Earth’s plane all “self-awareness” comes as an awareness of our body and the outer reality produced by the group subconscious of the Astral Field of Light (atmosphere). We all exist within the collective consciousness of the Earth’s Soul (collective memory as a field of information) of Astral (star) Light. What we refer to as the “mind” is synonymous with the soul, and acts to form a whole reality that functions as a “whole idea” with different aspects that all play a specialized part in acting out the same experience. What we experience as our “outer reality” is a hologram formed internally at the unconscious (collective) level that’s projected outward as a lens we look through that sorts and organizes all the information available in the astral field to form a reality that’s somewhat unique to us. While submerged in the collective unconscious we perceive the outer reality as being separate and independent of us, when the fact is it’s being created by us at the unconscious level. Material reality (made up of a matrix of organized light) is contained fully within the subconscious as the group mind.

Higher Consciousness

All of reality exists as the dynamic interweaving of multiple planes that work together to form a unified experience of reality. The higher plane of consciousness that oversees this one consists of abstract, non-personal, universal thought that’s mathematical in nature and perceives reality as the work of laws and principles that are serving to orchestrate all the activities of the lower plane through a form of synchronicity as a holo-movement. What we refer to as the “Higher Self”, which is the aspect of our lower self that never fully descends into the lower plane of an animal body not only remains fully conscious while utilizing its creative abilities, but also serves as a kind of choreographer for the entire lower plane which it views in its entirety from above.

Our personality is formed out of the accumulation and integration of experience acquired through a subconscious existence on the lower plane of illusion. While many think that our self-awareness while in a body is “who we are” as a higher, cosmic soul, this “image” we form of ourselves is produced by a form of soul-amnesia as mistaken identity, commonly referred to as our ego. Just as our self-conscious and subconscious are “extensions” of each other, they’re both an extension of our Higher Self and Mind. The self-conscious mind is formed as the culmination of mental activities originating in cosmic memory. Just as we draw on an intelligent field of information within the material plane using our mind and intuition as a similar function of “animal instinct”, where our perceptions and behaviors are driven by impulses and emotions that cause us to act without a thought-process or decision, we can also use our subconscious to draw on a higher plane of archetypal ideas that allow us to create outside of the group mind in an original and individual manner.

As we change our perception from a personal perspective to a more universal one, our personal consciousness (ego) is obliterated through a higher realization. When we begin realizing that our entire reality is being created by our subconscious mind as a means of creating experiences of ourselves that can be utilized to facilitate our own conscious evolution, we begin seeing all of reality as a reflection of inner aspects of our own psyche that normally remain hidden and unknown to us. Transformation takes place in the phase of conscious awareness when the “pairs of opposites” that create the illusion of separation are blended harmoniously and thereby “neutralized” as a single awareness that’s comprised of all elements of both the inner and outer perception of reality. This principle is demonstrated by the fact that all complementary colors when mixed together are neutralized as grey.

The Trinity and the Law of the Triad

There are several models that are used to illustrate the law operating in the Triad, most of which are either represented by a man (husband), woman (wife), and child (combination), a person with three heads or faces, and a guardian angel (divine being) governing and watching over a couple as a man and woman who are lovers. The man represents the self-conscious aspect of outer-awareness, the woman the subconscious aspect of both the inner and outer, and the child as the regenerated personality as a combination of both that produces a unique and different being all together. The Higher-Self is the Divine Breath or cosmic fire that orchestrates and creates on the lower plane by “seeding” and impregnating the subconscious (of both the individual and group mind) with an idea as a metaphor that’s self-perpetuating.

What’s referred to as the 4 Elements of Esoteric Sciences represent “modes of consciousness” that all work together to produce the Astral Body as the spatial blueprint (hologram) of material reality. The action of heat on water causes the water to evaporate and become air, the moist substance of breath. As water rises and becomes invisible it accumulates on a higher plane where it becomes the “forms” impressed on the Astral Plane of Light as memory. Breath is specialized in sound as an inner voice that becomes the basis for outer speech, both of which issue forth from thought as an idea. Sound, like light, is 7-fold in nature as 7 tones that naturally vibrate the 7 colors of the rainbow, which “reveals” the hidden nature of light that normally remains invisible to us (to our physical senses). Sound as an instrument of creation (vibration) is commonly represented by an angel blowing a trumpet, which is an instrument that uses sound vibration to both “shatter” (destroy) and “levitate” (transcend).

Sound as an inner voice is how our Higher Self communicates with us and is translated into sensory form as thought, which is turned into pictures within our imagination and lays the foundation for all of our actions.  As we “conceive” the message as an “idea in seed form” (archetype) from our Higher Self, which often comes as a form of inspiration or through dreams, it provides us with a new pattern as a pathway that ultimately liberates us from the illusion of separation. Not separation from others within our reality, but from the higher aspect of our mind that’s acting to produce the entire reality in which we’re submerged as an unconscious aspect of our own creation.

The 7 tones that comprise the musical scale are harmoniously organized into a composition that produces a corresponding effect in the 7 stars (chakras) of our etheric body by re-calibrating their vibration through sympathetic resonance. Sound “organizes light into patterns” as internal images that invoke an equivalent emotional response. Emotions are the motivating force of the subconscious and form the universal pattern into a unique variation by how it’s adapted to the current situation and conditions. It introduces a “new pattern” that serves to calibrate our entire system to produce the reality of the pattern. It forms first internally as a metaphorical image in the imagination, which provides the subconscious of not only the individual but also the group mind in which the individual is a part with a directive for creating externally as a correspondence where it can be “witnessed” by the self-conscious as an “experience” of itself.  

Material reality is symbolized by a square which has 4 lines composed of “right angles” to each other. When turned at a 90 degree angle, it forms a diamond shape, which represents the Tetrad (4) that is birthed as a reflection of the Triad (3) through the Vesica Pisces (Dyad), which is also called the “womb of the universe”.  The Triad represents the 3-fold nature of the mind, and the Tetrad represents material reality which comes as a direct reflection or projection of the mind. When the Dyad is orientated vertically from upper to lower instead of side-by-side in a horizontal movement, it represents the mind being given an idea as an imagined thought from the higher plane that serves to produce a correlating reality through a process of adaptation that modifies it into a unique variation. An equal armed cross is formed by 2 lines that intersect to form 2 pairs of right angles. A square can be divided into 9 equal squares (3 aspects of a 3-fold nature) that form a cross. 9 = completion, and 5 = adaptation > a 3-D reality produced by complete adaptation of an idea (archetype) from the higher plane of the 4th dimension.

4th Dimension of the Astral Plane

On the Astral Plane of the 4th dimension, all things are the reverse or polar opposite of physical conditions. On this plane the self-conscious is made passive, and the subconscious is free to receive the influences of the Higher Self. The Higher Self can’t communicate directly with the self-conscious mind of the material plane because it’s “active” and can’t act as a receiver. It’s only by reversing polarity and making the self-conscious “thinking” mind silent, and therefore passive, that we can receive thoughts from the active aspect of our Higher Self on the higher plane of the super-conscious.

This process of reversed polarity of the two material minds allows the subconscious to be impregnated with a “new idea” as a projection of our higher consciousness. All ideas from the 4th dimension exist in their “potential state” and are self-perpetuating. They work to form the reality that’s ideal for evolving the personality of the body in the most beneficial way possible. A new idea being birthed as a reality is represented by the “child” as the offspring produced by a new combination of qualities and complementary patterns. When we allow ourselves to be guided by our higher consciousness which is universal in nature and acts to create our entire reality, we evolve ourselves to a higher state of true self-awareness as a higher, divine being. This is illustrated in scripture through the saying “and a child shall lead them” (a new pattern that’s self-perpetuating) . . . it’s the regenerated personality that’s formed out of an injection of universal consciousness that comes from a higher plane that’s overseeing the entire lower plane.

Perpetual Intelligence of our Higher Self

Our Higher Self plants an archetypal idea as a metaphorical theme in our mind that’s self-assembling. Any idea translated into a sensory reality in the imagination vibrates at the frequency of the idea as a metaphorical pattern. A vibratory pattern, like all living systems, is 3-fold in nature, and not only has the pattern as a metaphorical template inherent in it, but also a self-assembling mechanism that organizes light into the “reality” of the idea. It undergoes a process of adaptation that specializes it into a unique variation by growing it “in” our personality in its current state and level of development. It introduces an idea as a new pattern for creating new experiences of ourselves that serve to evolve us to a higher level of self-awareness as self-expression. 

A universal archetype as a metaphorical idea forms into a unique pattern through a growth and development process, much like a seed that’s planted in fertile soil grows by being nourished by the warmth and energy of the sun (symbol of our Higher Self). It works through resonance as sympathetic induction to organize the reality of the idea as a specialized variation that brings a new kind of experience that provides us with a new awareness of ourselves. We “create ourselves” by creating the reality we use as the means of experiencing ourselves.  As we receive instruction from our Higher Self as a unique pattern for creating as a reality, it grows us through the experiences it produces and the realizations that come as a natural outgrowth. We only “grow” through the incorporation of new ideas that become a part of our reality and form how we experience our self in relationship with that reality. They cause us to stretch and move beyond the normal limits set in place by our formative conditioning.

The Self-Perpetuating action of the Mind

There’s two basic ways we act to “draw in ideas” with our material mind. Our material mind consists of the two lower aspects of our bodily consciousness in which the self-conscious is an outgrowth or offspring of our subconscious mind. Our subconscious is the feminine aspect that’s passive, receptive, and acts to create our entire material reality, first by gestating an idea in the womb of the imagination as a holographic form that’s magnetized with sensation causing it to vibrate at the frequency of the archetypal form. Then, once it’s formed into a detailed internal reality through a process of adaptation, it begins vibrating at the complementary frequency necessary for assembling the elements of the outer reality of the group mind into the same thematic idea (holographic principle of creation) on a larger scale. Our thoughts are perceived as transparent scenarios projected onto an invisible screen or lens that we then “look through” as the means of seeing the same idea all around us as a coherent reality. The mind creates through fractal patterns that manifest on different scales and levels simultaneously.

We’re always either drawing ideas as information out of the atmosphere around us (horizontal plane) formed by the group mind of “created ideas”, or we absorb them from the higher plane of archetypal ideas and use them as the means of creating in a unique and innovative manner. We either run the same thoughts through our mind in a redundant and habitual manner, usually acquired through our conditioning and what we’ve been taught as the ideas of others, or we tune into the plane of our Higher Self, silence our habitual rambling mind, become fully present in direct experience, and allow thoughts to be spontaneously interjected into our mind from a neutral and universal perspective that are non-personal in nature. This means they aren’t generated by our habitual mind as a means of replaying memories of the past in order to use those ideas to create in the present.

We have to silence our conditioned mind and become a vessel for our higher mind to inhabit and create through. As we begin experiencing ourselves through the intelligence and awareness of our higher mind, we begin experiencing ourselves in new ways. As we create new experiences we identify with those experiences, and evolve ourselves accordingly. We only retain subconsciously what we become a part of as an experience that unites the inner with the outer, and ultimately the upper with the lower. Once we step into the reality of ourselves as our divine nature we become multidimensional beings that exist fully within a higher level of consciousness. We no longer perceive separation and realize through direct experience that there’s really only one of us. This experience of ourselves is expressed in the Hermetic axiom, “as above so below, and as within so without, in the wondrous workings of the One Thing.” And what Jesus was referring to when he said “when the outer becomes the same as the inner, and the inner becomes the same as the outer, you’ll have entered the kingdom of heaven”.

How to Know God and Ascend in Spirit to Higher Dimensions

In order to intelligently consider this idea we have to start by defining what we mean by “God”, because this idea is different for everyone. The word God is being used in this context to represent a higher power of universal consciousness as the laws and principles that govern the entire cosmos. God is not an entity or Deity, but the Universal Mind out of which all material phenomena is contained as a mental construct or holographic projection. As humans we have been bestowed with the same mind (conscious self-awareness) and have the ability to “know God” by becoming one with It in Mind. We only attain “knowledge of” something by becoming one with it in spirit and the same as it in mind and experiencing it from “within it as it”. We look out at the world through the same eyes and level of self-awareness. In this context “it” isn’t referring to an actual or single being, but the consciousness as a mental state that’s formed within as a direct and intimate experience of the same nature and kind that includes “all” of reality as a singularity or whole movement.

What we refer to as the spiritual world or realm is invisible to the physical senses and can only be known directly through thought and self-awareness. All thoughts are formed in the mind as an inner speech or voice that shapes an image of the thought in the imagination. All thoughts are formed as a product of or direct reflection of our state of mind or mood. Whatever state we exist in as a general rule determines what type of ideas we form a natural connection with and act as a host for bringing into expression as our internal representations that form a kind of symbolic template as a “theme” and metaphor for producing as an equivalent outer experience of reality. While we have a tendency to believe that the body gives rise to our mind and produces our thoughts, in reality, our body merely acts as a vessel or conduit for our mind to inhabit and use as the means of expressing and creating experiences of our “self” through.

Both our mind and higher human soul are not fixed ideas generated by a finite set of conditions as located within the space-time continuum, but are energetic formations that are constantly undergoing a process of evolution and transformation as acquiring and integrating different qualities and states of consciousness. The body and the personality of the body, often referred to as our lower, animal soul and subconscious, is merely the means through which the higher soul enters into a state of “separation with itself” as an “illusion produced by the mind” in order to create an “experience” of itself. All experience is created out of a state of duality as a projection of complementary opposites that act “on” each other to transform each other. We only acquire knowledge of ourselves through how we create our experiences. All “phenomenon” is created out of vibration which is the movement as a dance between the masculine (electric) and feminine (magnetic) aspects of the “same thing” that work together to produce the illusion of an “inner and outer” as being different and often unrelated. The foundation of vibration is movement, which can only occur through separation.

The mind is an aspect of the soul, and like the soul, exists on multiple levels simultaneously and is formed out of the same qualities and archetypal ideas that operate in a universal fashion as laws and principles. We have an individual mind, a family or group mind, race mind, cultural mind, and a cosmic or universal mind, all of which operate in harmony with each other based on a shared theme and type or level of consciousness that they all exist within. The mind is the “medium” through which we connect with the greater mind of humanity and the cosmos. Our physical body and our personality born out of the body, merely houses our mind and soul and acts as a “tuning mechanism” for “drawing in” consciousness from the atmosphere or astral plane of light that’s all around us. We not only tune ourselves to be a receiver and transducer through our thoughts and feelings, but also through expanding from an awareness of ourselves as being a body to being a part of a greater mind that encompasses the whole of reality in which we play a part.

In order to expand into the greater mind of humanity and the cosmos, we have to transcend our limited perception of ourselves as being a single personality, and realize that we’re also playing a role in a much larger dynamic where we’re a part of other people’s lives and serve to provide them with certain “types” of learning experiences as well. We have to expand our awareness beyond our sense of self that’s oriented to our body, which can only be done by purifying ourselves of negative emotions that keep us absorbed in playing out unconscious dramas that enhance and accentuate the feeling of separation. When we internalize everything to make it about us personally, we construct the walls of our own prison and condemn ourselves to a life of solitary confinement. It’s our emotions and passions that keep us locked into an unconscious state where we don’t realize we have the power to transcend them.

Emotions only exist as natural forces on the material plane where they keep us tied into a form of animal instinct where we use the creative power of our mind to produce whole realities as stories about ourselves and life that are fantasies. As long as emotions control our mind and how we think, determining what type of reality we create internally, we remain imprisoned by our own delusions. All emotional and psychological pain is self-administered when we stay shrouded in the cloak of our own ignorance as to our true, divine nature. As long as we continue to create an experience of our “self” as being our “body”, and therefore bound to the unconscious state of the body, we’re consumed with selfishness and remain nearsighted.

The only way we can truly “know” anything is by becoming “like” it. Like can only know what’s like itself. Like only has the power to produce more of what’s like itself. So in order to “know” God, we have to become “like” god. God only exists through mind and it’s only through our mind that we can become one with God. Not as an individual located within a single body and specific set of conditions and circumstances, but by expanding outside of ourselves to become a greater part of a conscious whole. We’re not only “having and experience” ourselves, but we’re also playing a significant role in a greater idea that provides a certain type of experience for others. We play a part in a greater pattern and are providing others with the means necessary for them to grow themselves in relationship with us. We play a part in our immediate family, community, society, and all of humanity. By expanding our awareness of ourselves as being a part of a greater whole, we can begin identifying with being a higher, universal being.

When we expand our mind and perception of our self to be of a more universal nature, we not only sense ourselves in a much more profound way, but we become conscious and aware of our part in the grand scheme of things. We begin relating and identifying with being a universal soul and take on the perspective and attitude of being of service to others and acting in a way that serves the highest benefit of everyone involved. We begin thinking of ourselves in a much more non-personal way. We begin putting thought into how it is we’re affecting and influencing others, aiding them in their growth somehow, or demonstrating a higher way of being, and it changes our perception of ourselves and gives us a renewed sense of purpose.

As long as we’re self-consumed and live out of dramas that self-administer our own pain and suffering by somehow making everything about us and taking things personal, we remain confined in the darkness of ignorance. As long as we grieve over the “bad hand” we feel we were dealt in life, or wallow in our own demise and self-pity, we remain a prisoner within the confines of our own mind. The very foundation of ignorance as an “error in self-awareness and realization” comes through selfishness and a reluctance to play our role harmoniously within a much greater idea that’s playing out. This is what it means to realize that you’re not your body living an insignificant life in a mundane situation, but are a universal being that has had many bodies, personalities, and different life experiences that served to shape you through your part in an ongoing cosmic story.

Creating the Experience of Becoming One with the Higher Mind of God

We can only attain knowledge through direct experience. In order to understand this idea, we have to bring it into practice as an experience. Here are a couple of methods you can use to begin learning how to look at your life differently and sense yourself in a much more expanded and powerful way.

Third Person Perspective: In any situation of your daily life, take a moment and instead of experiencing it within yourself looking out with all of your usual self-dialogue going on, imagine watching yourself from the distance and how you would appear to another person. Step outside of yourself and view the situation from a distant perspective where you don’t make anything that’s going on personal, but instead view it in as objective a manner possible. Imagine it as if it’s a movie where you’re not the main star or co-star, but simply playing one part of a bigger story. Dissociate from your body and personality and see yourself as just another person in a much larger situation, and watch how it changes your perspective on things and what your life seems to be about. Do this repeatedly throughout your day until you start getting good at it.

Meditation: The spiritual world of invisible consciousness can only be known through thought that’s felt inwardly. We can only know God by entering into the silence of our own mind. This means we have to quiet our own “thinking” as rambling thoughts formed through a chain of association that come in an automatic way. It’s our own internal dialogue fueled by habitual tendencies that create both a sense of separation from the whole, and our self as being our personality and conditioning. As we quiet our thoughts and become completely calm and fully relax our body (tension comes from thoughts that produce emotion in the body), our mind expands as an awareness that moves us outside of our body and into the space around us.

We begin expanding out into the space all around and sense ourselves as part of a greater whole. We sense ourselves as being a part of a greater mind and enter into the flow of universal consciousness all around us and we form a new, expanded sense of ourselves. We sense ourselves through a whole new way of being. We lose all sense of our self and become one with creation. We become all aspects that are playing complementary roles in a much bigger picture. We become pure presence, which strangely enough fills us with a feeling of bliss and euphoria. We realize that all of our pain and suffering results from the fact that we’re confined to a body. In this moment we know we’re actually a soul within a body and not limited to the body itself. We know this not as a theory that’s difficult to even grasp in practical terms, but from the direct and immediate experience of it as being it. It’s the “experience” that brings realizations that instantly transform you and your entire way of thinking and perceiving.

Conclusion

Through the experience of becoming one with the greater mind, attained only in meditation, introspection, and contemplation, a whole new series of realizations occur spontaneously. We learn truth from within the experience of it and so we never doubt it again. As we experience ourselves from within the silence of the greater mind that expands our awareness of our self, a whole new reality opens up that’s fresh and invigorating. We feel renewed and our purpose in life as a divine being becomes intimately clear and we fall in love with ourselves because we love how it feels to be who we really are. We realize that we’re not here to be consumed in constant personal dramas, but to play a significant and meaningful role in serving the whole of humanity in as fluid and harmonious way as possible. We step fully into ourselves as divine beings of a noble nature here to set humanity free by transcending the illusions of the emotional, animal subconscious that confines us to darkness by identifying with a specific animal body and point in time.

How we unknowingly create the Reality of our Beliefs as Delusions

There’s an interesting thing about beliefs that make them hard to realize as not being true. Anything that we belief to be true, and therefore real, we create through our ability to “see it” in any situation. We see it not as an actual reality in and of itself, but as an “interpretation” of reality. A belief is usually formed as an interpretation of reality rather than an objective observation of an actual event. We can have difficulty understanding the power of belief in forming our reality because we don’t understand that what we call “reality” is formed as our “perception”, and it’s our “mind” that producing our perception. The subconscious aspect of our mind is what serves to shape all of our outer perceptions of reality to match our inner perceptions by “what we tell ourselves” about something. Because our outer reality is produced by our subconscious in an automatic fashion (unconsciously), we lack “direct awareness” of the fact that we’re actually the “one” telling our subconscious what to produce through our very “thoughts”.

If we look at the true nature of how a belief is constructed we can gain awareness around how it is that we’re creating our reality with our thoughts and intention. A belief doesn’t originate as an objective observation of reality that exists independent of us, but results rather from the “meaning” we give things by what we tell ourselves about them. Most people don’t realize that our internal dialogue as our thought processes is how we use “one aspect” of our mind to communicate with and direct the creative process of “another aspect” of our mind. What we consciously think about and picture in our mind as an inner experience of reality is actually directing our subconscious on what to create as a consistent and ongoing outer reality of the same nature and kind.

Another common mistake that results from a lack of self-awareness in understanding our own creative ability to produce our reality, comes by perceiving beliefs as being singular and independent of each other, rather than resulting from a “dynamic system of correlated beliefs”. As children, we have the full capacity of our subconscious mind, while our logical, rational, reasoning mind hasn’t developed yet. It’s the rational and discriminating “thought producing” aspect of our mind that acts as the “gatekeeper” to our subconscious, and has the ability to rationally evaluate and logically analyze ideas in order to “decide” what to “let in and take hold”, and what to reject and keep out. When only the subconscious is dominantly active, we readily take in and internalize whatever we witness happening around us and whatever it is we’re told is true and real. We have no ability to discriminate and simply create the reality of whatever we’re taught. Because we can create any idea as an imaginary experience that makes it seem real, we form a belief around it as being real and therefore true.

It’s our conscious, thinking mind of outer awareness that perceives a world of separation and tells stories about things as being apart from and independent of us, while the subconscious sees everything as connected and related and simply acts to internalize whatever is happening to make it “about us” personally. While in our subconscious, group mind, we imagine that we’re apart of everything that’s happening around us, and that whatever someone says about us is describing us in some way, and we form all of our initial beliefs accordingly. As children we perceive ourselves as being a part of our family unit and intimately connected to our parents. We imagine that their pain and sorrow is somehow our fault or because of us, and that we can change it by changing ourselves. In a similar manner we can have a tendency to believe that we can also make them happy or take away their pain by doing something special or changing how we’re acting.

As children, all of our perceptions stem from our emotions and we form our initial beliefs about ourselves and life in general out of emotional states we acquired from our parents and family dynamics. Whatever they were feeling and outwardly expressing, we feel to, and whatever we hear them saying about us or talking about with others, we take in without discretion and internalize as being a fact. Because we create it internally as an imaginary reality based on feelings, we perceive it as being real and therefore true. We listen to whatever is being said about us and we form a belief around it without questioning it, and it becomes a form of self-fulfilling prophecy. The subconscious isn’t literal like the conscious mind, and creates out of thematic ideas that it uses as metaphors.

If our parent has a tendency to scold us by telling us to “quit acting like an idiot”, we don’t have the evaluation skills to associate it with a particular behavior or act, and instead come to believe that we’re an idiot as a general rule. If our parent is upset and crying, or lashing out in anger, telling us that we ruined their life, we translate that into meaning we’re not loved or wanted, and we begin acting that way as a general theme that carries over into every aspect of our life. Once we internalize an idea and make it into an experience of reality as meaning something about us and about how others see us, it becomes a “core belief” as a primary life theme, which, as we go along we continue to create more experiences of the same kind in different relationships and situations, spawning correlating beliefs of a similar nature.

Our parent(s) not wanting us becomes everybody not wanting us. We develop all of our relationships in a way that results in us being rejected, ridiculed, blamed, disliked, and abandoned in the most basic sense. We then form a belief that everyone, our romantic partner, friends, and co-workers don’t want us, and we not only go into every situation with an attitude, intention, and expectation of not being wanted, we also unconsciously produce the behaviors that cause us to not be wanted. We often display an attitude of treating others in a way that makes them feel unwanted by us, causing them to respond to us in a like manner. The very behavior and reality we expect we also unconsciously produce that causes us to consistently be rejected, ignored, abandoned, or left out in the cold.

Because this is an unconscious process, we usually do it without any real awareness of what or how it is we’re doing it. Then, when the other person or group responds in kind by thinking that we don’t like or want to be around them, we create the experience of “once again” not being loved or wanted. Beliefs are the unconscious formula for consistently producing the reality of the belief that bridges the inner, imagined reality with the outer, actual reality to be of the same nature as a “type of experience”. We can have a tendency to do this our whole life without ever realizing that we’re actually the one doing it to ourselves and others.

The Nature of Core Beliefs

 We all form our core beliefs as our mental model produced in our formative years as our initial conditioning. A core belief is created while we’re in a primarily unconscious state as an imaginary reality produced by the emotion we were feeling at the time we formed it. A belief is a holistic pattern as a “model” used for perceiving that contains every ingredient (emotion, mood, thought, imagined reality, set of behaviors, memories, etc.) necessary to produce the reality of the belief, except for the rational, logical, and reasoning aspect. A core belief is used as the means for providing us with an “instant interpretation” of reality that transforms every objective fact or situation into the reality of the belief, making it difficult for us to realize that we’re the one creating it. Due to the fact that it appears to us as an honest evaluation of what’s actually happening, we can interpret even the most loving and caring behaviors to mean the opposite. When someone openly demonstrates wanting to be with us, we don’t trust it, think they’re lying, and instead of using it as evidence that contradicts and undermines our belief, we reshape it to conform to our belief, and continue to act as if it’s true.

This usually results from the fact that our entire paradigm used for perceiving the world is structured out of our core beliefs as a correlated system that all acts to explain, describe, validate, and justify our beliefs through every aspect of our perception. We usually don’t know how to accept a contradictory idea as possibly being true and create an experience of “being loved and wanted”. We don’t know how to “be” in that situation. We don’t know how to act as if we’re wanted. We’ll literally fight, accuse, and challenge anyone who claims to want us, until it makes them “not want us anymore”. Then we think, “ah ha, I knew it, you were just lying the whole time”, usually without realizing that we were hell-bent on creating it the whole time. We have no model for how to be in a situation where we honestly feel loved and wanted, and so we don’t know how to act.

Likewise, someone who believes they’re an “idiot” or stupid will continuously produce the behaviors that warrant them being called an idiot, because they don’t have a model for “being” smart. For this reason our belief system as our mental paradigm is only transformed through a gradual process of realizing our beliefs and consciously deciding to “question them” by considering contradictory evidence that will ultimately serve to modify them. It’s only through a continuous process of study and self-reflection that we’re able to begin incorporating new information that serves to grow and evolve our current ideas about our self and our life.

We can begin realizing our own unconscious tendencies and correct them through consciously developing new concepts of ourselves, embodying new feelings and qualities, and intentionally employing new ways of being and behaving. As we begin looking at life from a new perspective while intentionally embodying qualities as a new way of being, we can learn how to begin telling a new kind of story about our life. This is something that only we can do for ourselves through self-awareness that brings realization around the creative nature of our mind and our ability to create and transform ourselves. If someone else tries to interject contradictory evidence that discredits our beliefs about our self, we’ll argue to defend them as being true and accurate. And, as the saying goes . . . “whatever we argue to defend is ours to keep”. We have to open our mind in being willing to consider a new possibility for ourselves.

Self-Mastery: Learning how to not be affected by others

Many of us spend our whole life a slave to the attitude, behaviors, and opinions of other people. We’re in a constant form of reaction from one moment to the next, beings jerked around like a puppet on strings, often crushed by a rude comment. If someone is hateful or sarcastic in some way towards us, it can throw us into a tailspin that can last for days, weeks, or even months. Someone with a bad attitude that’s also aggressive can outright terrify us, especially with all the mass shootings being staged and publicized around the world. Most people spend their entire life being shaped and determined by other people and the rules of society, usually without any direct awareness of how it’s happening or the reason why. Many people have completely lost touch with their soul and their real power to create in their life, and don’t even realize it.

One of the most basic forms of empowerment comes from a fundamental understanding of psychology and what it is that drives people’s behaviors. By coming to understand what drives other people’s behaviors, we can gain a better understanding of our own behavior in response to them. We’re all only capable of “bringing out in others” more of what’s “like us”. Whatever qualities we embody and express outwardly act to stimulate and bring out those same qualities in others as a natural response to us. Energetically, we’re always vibrating the same state of mind in everyone we interact with. We’re always in the process of mentally and emotionally influencing others to become more like us by how we perceive them and treat them accordingly.

Anyone who has been beat down and criticized as a child, either grows up to beat others down with the same type of criticism and mental attitude, or they remain super sensitive to anyone who has an attitude of criticizing them. The act of criticizing produces an equal and complementary reaction. The effect produced is always an expression of what caused it. There are no exceptions to this rule. The confusion tends to come when we only look at one side of the equation, instead of recognizing that everything operates as a whole pattern. All patterns form as a “dynamic” that’s holistic in nature and played out unconsciously through our basic perception, attitude, conditioned tendencies, and automatic behaviors.

Most people when being criticized or dealing with a sarcastic or mean person, focus almost exclusively on the person they perceive as doing it “to them”, rather than focusing on what’s happening inside of them as their own reaction. All energy, which is what emotional expression is, exists in a fundamental state of polarity as complementary opposites that move in-sync with each other. Anger, for example, provokes either and equal or greater response of anger, which escalates and intensifies it, or it causes a fearful response that backs down and becomes submissive. Any emotional response, whether sympathetic or antipathetic, nurtures and sustains the anger/emotion because both people are cooperating with each other in co-creating a joint reality out of the “active force” of anger. Any “reaction”, which comes in an immediate and automatic fashion that matches the energy being projected, is a basic form of control. Anytime we’re reacting, we’re being controlled by whatever it is we’re reacting to. The easiest way there is to control someone is through their emotions and the sensationalized realities they create internally.

 Every human being develops their own “mental paradigm” based on their formative conditioning. All of our initial conditioning takes place while we’re in a primarily unconscious state, and acts to literally “program” our subconscious as the “model” of reality we form from it. All of our values, beliefs, preferences, and initial (developmental) memories are instilled in us as kids through our family dynamics. As we become adults our basic personality and way of perceiving others and the world around us has been firmly established and we simply continue to live out of the same perceptions, tendencies, and relationship dynamics that we were a part of as kids. We continue to view the world and others the same way we were taught. In psychology we say that “we become one of our parents, and we marry the other one”. Whatever type of relationships was modeled for us as kids and that we played an active role in, becomes the same type of relationships we enter into and maintain romantically, socially, and professionally. We play out the same ideas over and over with different people and situations.

These dynamics become the themes that serve as a metaphor for our life. They usually involve ideas around our self-esteem (image of ourselves), such as not being good enough, not being worthy, not loved or wanted, being stupid, bad, ugly, and so on, which is why they ultimately serve as self-fulfilling prophecies that we wrap our identify around as adults. We “become” whatever we’ve been programmed psychologically to become by what we were told, heard being said about us, and how we were treated by those we cared about the most. These life themes become what we refer to psychologically as “core beliefs” that are like the nucleus of our mental model and spawn all of our other beliefs as being correlated to the same basic idea.

Dissecting Our Experience

In order to really grasp the significance of this idea, let’s take a moment and examine how it is that we create our experiences. While we tend to think that others are capable of doing something “to us”, when we examine the process closely, we can realize that we’re actually the one doing it to ourselves. We are in fact the sole creator of all our “experiences”. This idea is often confused as being our “reality” in the objective sense of what happens outside of us, when in fact how we experience what happens to us is an internal process that we perform and conduct “on” ourselves using our mind. Creating our experiences comes initially as an “unconscious process”, which means we do it naturally without any “direct awareness” of the fact that we’re actually the one doing it to ourselves. Due to the naturalness of the process, it usually completely eludes us. Yet in order to gain control over our own natural and unconscious processes, we have to form an understanding of them as a mental concept. So let’s turn our full attention inward and become aware of how we form our reactions to others.

When someone says or does something that’s offensive, hurtful, sarcastic, or mean, something that’s designed to get a rise out of us and place us in their control, we experience it as an intense internal stimulus that comes as an “emotional charge”. Once you experience the emotional stimulus, you instantly associate it to a memory where the same type of emotion and behavior was involved. Through association to a past event of the same kind, the same emotion and state are awakened and made active in you, bringing it out in you as a natural reaction. Your mind interprets “this” to mean the same thing as “that”, and you react in the present with the same emotional behavior as the past. We then act out the same behaviors and dynamics, and begin telling ourselves the same type of story about what it means about them and us in relation to them.

The story we tell ourselves as our thoughts and internal dialogue follow the same theme as our memory of the past. Emotions are always associated to memories we formed while in the same emotional state. Emotions are what drive and produce all of our natural and automatic behaviors. We’re most naturally and easily made to behave in certain ways through our emotions. Emotional memories give our subconscious the “pattern” it needs for producing automatic realities and behaviors that don’t require any thought, appraisal or decisions.

When we live out of our emotions we live out of the memories and conditioning of our past and continue to create more of the same type of experiences. We repeat the same patterns with the same type of people and relive the same type of experiences in new ways over and over. As we create our experiences, we simultaneously identify with them, and shape ourselves “through” our experiences. We once again replay the broken and worn out record that says we’re not good enough, worthless, stupid, not wanted, loved, blah, blah, blah, and due to the fact that we produce an “experience of ourselves” out of the emotional charge, it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy.

From a purely psychological perspective, we only “react” to and feel hurt or threatened by those who are conditioned to the same type of dynamics as we are, and therefore naturally play the role necessary for acting it out. Whenever we’re triggered by someone’s behavior towards us, it’s actually providing us with a mirror to learn how to see things in ourselves that we’re normally not fully aware of. It’s showing us where we’re still living out of the illusions and pain of the past that we never came to terms with, identified accurately, or put to rest. It’s still alive and active within us because we haven’t gained any real awareness around it that brought self-realization. Due to the fact that we still maintain a belief around it as being true, we continue to faithfully act it out over and over with the right people.

A person’s attitude and behaviors stem from their mental paradigm and psychological complexes, and in reality, have nothing to do with us. When someone calls us stupid, it doesn’t mean that we are in fact stupid, but shows us that they were made to feel stupid as a kid growing up, and are now compensating by trying to make others feel stupid in order to somehow elevate themselves above them. The lower they make someone else, the higher they become in comparison. They’re unconscious beings who are used to verbally attacking others in the same way they were verbally abused. Their opinion, perception, attitude and conduct only serves to “reveal” who “they are” and says nothing meaningful about us . . . unless, of course, we let it.

When we take what others say and do personally by internalizing it, we actually believe what they’re saying and accept it as being true about us, especially if we grew up being called the same names. The reason we “react emotionally” is because we’re used to it and we’ve been treated that way in the past. When we react by being hurt or offended, we’re actually agreeing with them and may secretly feel it’s somehow true. That’s what a reaction is. We know how to play a role in the reality they’re creating, and so we cooperate by participating in making it real. For example, if you know you’re not stupid or dumb, and someone calls you that, it has no effect on you in the most basic sense; outside of the fact that you may think they’re being rude. Nothing gets stimulated internally and there are no memories of the same type that are necessary to produce and automatic and immediate reaction. Anytime we react to being called a name it’s because deep down inside we think it may be true.

Self-Observation and Realization

In order to understand this psychological process, simply observe your own reactions from a neutral and unbiased standpoint. Start by finding a place and time where you can have privacy, and sit calmly and fully relax. Then recall an event where you felt hurt or upset by something someone said or did to you, and reflect on it in slow motion. Slow it down and review it step by step. Recall what was said or done, how it was said or done, what attitude, emotions, and behaviors were involved, and what it was regarding. Then turn all of your attention inward and focus exclusively on your own internal process.

Recall the emotional charge as it entered your body, and notice where in your body it lodged and stimulated you. Notice the nature of the stimulus by describing it in sensory terms. Was it sharp and stabbing, did it give you a sinking feeling, or did it cause you to feel afraid or scared? Notice what emotion was activated in you, and while refraining from going into a reaction again or telling yourself a story about it that justifies your right to react the way you did, just notice and witness what you’re thought process was and what it seemed to be about.

Allow yourself to notice what it brought up for you. What memory of the past started playing out in the background of your mind. What is it that you begin telling yourself about what it “means”? Then allow a natural chain-of-association to form as any other related or similar memories or scenario’s that it acted to prompt. Notice and become aware of anything that arises in relation to this event. Resist the tendency to repress it in any way, explain it away, or justify your right to be hurt or upset, and just observe your own internal process from a neutral and unbiased perspective. Then allow yourself to realize that you’re actually the one “creating” the state of being hurt or upset. No one is thinking your thoughts or feeling your feelings for you. You’re actually the one “doing it” to yourself by how you’re using your mind and body. It may feel as if you can’t help it (which is what unconscious means), but just notice and watch what’s going on inside of you.

Once you gain true self-awareness around what’s happening and why, and you bring what’s happening unconsciously into conscious awareness, this awareness alone neutralizes its effect. At the same time, you can become aware of what it is in you or about you that you need to heal and transform. All true healing is psychological in nature, and comes only by shedding light on the hidden aspects of your own psyche. We naturally act to heal ourselves by becoming aware of the patterns as memories we incurred as children that are continuing to act out in our life by forming all of our natural perceptions and reactive behaviors. Through awareness of the fact that we’re the one creating the reality of our memories, we dissolve them, and they no longer play out in an automatic fashion. We can be around the same person doing the same thing, and it no longer bothers us. We perceive it in a matter of fact way and no longer engage with them in co-creating that reality for ourselves.

As a general practice, if you do this process of self-reflection anytime you’re being triggered into a reaction of some kind, it’ll help you to become self-aware and resume conscious control of yourself and what it is you’re acting to create. You can begin healing yourself and taking back your power to create in a more aware and responsible manner. As you begin neutralizing your emotional reactions to others and the events of your life, you take back control of your own life. As you start remaining calm and clear headed in relation to others, you can begin developing skill in using your mind and imagination in a more deliberate and purposeful way. As you begin creating from a conscious and self-aware state, you take over the process of facilitating your own growth and development. You take back and begin utilizing your soul’s ability to create yourself from a fully awake and aware state and in whatever way you want and decide to.

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 Release and Erase Memories of People and Events

Memories are something that only exist in our mind as a mental construct and replay over and over due to the intense emotion associated with them. All of what becomes actual memory that we can vividly recollect in emotional detail years later comes from significant emotional events (SEE) that had a powerful impact on us in some way. These events and the memories we formed of them served to change us in the most fundamental sense, and as we continued to live out of them, they served to shape our identity and “who” we became because of them.

Memory and emotion are always connected due to the fact that the event caused a strong emotional reaction in us, and those emotions served to shape the nature of the experience we formed as an interpretation of some kind. Our “experience” doesn’t come as an objective recollection of the event itself, but how we processed and internalized it as a means of creating our experience of it. As we internalize an intense event, we make it “mean” something by the story we tell ourselves about it in an attempt to put it in perspective as a means of trying to make sense out of it. We take an existing reality as a strong emotional event and reprocess it to form a new version of it as our interpretation that gives it personal  meaning.

The meaning we give something as the means of experiencing it forms the basis for the storyline we begin telling ourselves that serve to shape us as a person. We create our identity out of the memories we constantly play out in one way or another as the means of producing more of the same type of experiences. They become thematic templates for producing instant interpretations as our perceptual lens and filtering system. They give us a form of referencing system to instantly interpret all new and similar type of events to mean the same thing. As we walk through life we’re always assessing and summing up situations by looking through the thematic filters of our past memories by saying “this means the same things as that”. We consistently shape the present to be a continuation of the past and a means of predicting the future.

We walk into any situation with preconceived notions and expectations of what’s going to happen, and we use a dynamic series of mental and emotional filters to only notice, abstract, and rearrange the information in a way that creates the experience of our expectations. We’re always saying to ourselves . . . this means I’m not wanted; that means I’m not loved; I’m not good enough; people can’t be trusted; life’s unfair; I can’t ever get ahead, and so on. We interpret any number of behaviors or actions to mean the same thing as those same types of actions meant to us in the past. Our memories provide us with a template for producing a congruent and consistent experience of reality that follows a major theme.

Because emotion is the key factor in forming all significant memories, it also acts as the “hook” that keeps us compulsively attached to them and that serves as a “trigger” for activating them. As we’re triggered emotionally we produce an immediate reaction that doesn’t require us to think about it in order to form a new appraisal. All reactions are instant and produce unconscious actions in us. We instantly access and replay the emotion, mindset, and behaviors of the memory being activated. As we’re triggered emotionally we literally go unconscious and act out of a delirious state.

Anytime we’re overly emotional or “sensitive” to the emotions being projected by others, we live our life out of memories of the past as automated patterns and create while unconscious and not utilizing our higher capacities to create in a self-aware, well thought out and intentional manner. Emotionally reactive people are unconscious in the most basic sense and are constantly being controlled and determined by whatever it is they’re reacting to. Their whole life is determined by and becomes a replay of their formative conditioning.

Subconscious and Self-Conscious Mind

What we refer to as our subconscious is the creative aspect of our mind that forms our experiences of reality. It’s the “passive” aspect of our mind that’s “receptive” in nature; while the self-conscious aspect is “active” and self-aware, and has the ability to “give direction” to the subconscious as a way of forming new patterns of interpretation and behaviors. The subconscious is “experiential” in nature, which means its “programmed” with pictures, images, and scenarios that it uses as a metaphorical template for perceiving reality and producing all of our natural behaviors that come in an automatic way without us having to think about them.

The subconscious is emotionally driven and prompted to take action based on impulses and strong emotional charges. It works to create our entire experience of reality and ourselves out of memories of experiences that are emotionally intense. We literally “act on ourselves” to program ourselves for creating reality based on memories we form and continue to live out of, and the emotional states they naturally act to produce and maintain. Anyone who lives out of memories of their past is literally delusional. They’re living a life of illusions that they themselves are creating without direct awareness of what they’re doing.

The Power of Identity

The truly elusive and compelling thing about our memories is that we’ve actually “used them” as the means of shaping ourselves by way of them. As we had impacting experiences and tried to make sense of them by explaining them to give them meaning, we simultaneously identified with our own imaginary experiences. As we form an internal experience in our mind as the “meaning” of events, we “sense ourselves” within our own self-created experiences, and we make it mean the same thing about us. Whatever we tell ourselves about why something happened and what it means about another person or the way life is, it also means about us in relationship with it, and we begin identifying with our own story about things.

As we shape our identity out of our self-created memories and story about things, we need to keep telling them in order to know who we are. We replay the same scripts over and over in our mind. For this reason giving up our story can be quite difficult. This is especially true when we’re not clear on what story we want to tell in its place. Often when we give up our story or lose what we’ve shaped ourselves around, we don’t know how to “be” different. In order to tell a new story, we have to give up our memories of the past and develop new ways of being. Without a distinct sense of purpose and direction this can seem a bit daunting and overwhelming.

We become so used to living out of an automated state over time that having to actually make conscious decisions, select new ideas, and develop ourselves in new ways can seem dry causing us to struggle with motivation in maintaining them, especially when compared to the intensity of our emotional past. It’s the emotions attached to an idea that makes it compelling and infuses it with a sense of passion and drama. Emotions act like drugs in our body, altering our state of mind, and when their maintained in a habitual manner, become addictive, causing us to literally crave them.

In order to take over the process of conscious self-creation we have to exercise the higher capacities of our mind to create in an original fashion. This requires not only truly deciding to let go of your past conditioning, but also deciding how you’re going to be instead. What kind of person are you going to create yourself to be and what kind of story are you going to tell by how you live your life? And then, once you make those decisions you have to learn how to intentionally utilize your imagination in order to both instruct your subconscious to release and let go of memories while simultaneously replacing them with new ones. You have to learn how to use your conscious, self-aware mind to direct and guide your subconscious on what to create as a new idea.

Because your subconscious operates out of memory as imaginary experiences, you have to develop new ideas as actual experiences that are vivid in sensory terms. You have to create what you want as a form a “virtual memory” that provides your subconscious with a pattern to produce natural characteristics and behaviors out of. You have to practice embodying new ways of being as a means of training your body to new behaviors. You have to give your subconscious new emotional memories and form new habits through consistent and repetitive practice.

As you let go of past memories you have to replace the void it creates with new ones, or you have to “re-imagine” existing ones to form a new experience of them. If you leave a void, your subconscious will automatically draw something in as a means of knowing what to do. The subconscious can’t make decisions as to what to use as a means of creating and relies solely on memories as habitual patterns and tendencies. It’s “seeded” with suggestions from the conscious mind that it then converts into a reality in the imagination and uses for creating an outer reality of the same nature. The subconscious is symbolic in nature, which means that all imaginary experiences intentionally produced as a desire for creating as an outer reality, are utilized as thematic ideas. So it won’t produce the exact same reality the way you imagined it, but rather adapt the idea to the current situation and environment to produce a corresponding version of the same idea.

Power of the Imagination

While many people believe imaginary processes are an illusion and not “real”, they’re actually the means for not only giving the subconscious direction for creating as an actual experience, but also the means by which we direct the forces of the natural world. As we think, we imagine and direct energy into the “forms” of our thoughts, giving them life inside of us. All “actual memories” are in fact created by “re-imagining” an event, and are established as a modified version based on how they’re interpreted, and consistently replayed in the imagination. All imaginary processes are how we use our conscious mind to communicate with and direct our subconscious, which uses them as “symbolic ideas” for creating as an experience of a similar nature.

Another common mistake people make is in thinking that memories aren’t created “in” or by the imagination, but are an actual recollection of objective events, that they equally interpreted in a neutral and objective fashion. Yet memories are based on how we “formed our experience” of events based on the emotional state we were in at the time and as an “interpretation”. We reform the elements of an event in our mind as the means of telling a story out of the emotion we were feeling. Then the memory is recalled and replayed in the faculty of the imagination, forming our perceptual lens as an instant interpretation, and as the means of producing more experiences of the same kind, while altering the memory to some degree every time it’s recalled based on how it’s adapted to the current situation to produce a variable. Memories are actually “living creations” of the soul itself and they consistently undergo an evolutionary process through adaptation and modification.

Due to the fact that the subconscious is emotionally motivated to perform certain actions, if we have a fear or apprehension around letting go of or erasing memories, it’ll either hang onto them out of a fear of letting go, or it’ll create an experience that’s scary, stressful, and fear based. The emotion itself “is” the directive for the subconscious to create “as” an experience. The image used is just the pattern as a process, and the emotion is how that pattern is shaped into an experience. The pattern is simply what’s used to express the emotion attached to it as the reality that invokes more of the same emotion. The subconscious naturally moves into anything that’s presented as being pleasurable, and away from anything that’s painful. So if change is presented as a hard or painful struggle of some kind, the subconscious will avoid it at all costs, and work to sabotage any willful effort to accomplish it.

The scope of this article is the process of letting go of memories and not the instruction on how to create new ones, which I have written several other articles on, and can be accessed by using the search feature on my website. If you’re feeling the least bit apprehensive or unsure of yourself in choosing to let go of your past in order to create a new you, then you should spend some time exploring the nature of your attachment to your story of the past and wait until it becomes an exciting and liberating idea. Letting go of the “known” in favor of the “unknown” can be terrifying to those who are new to the idea of conscious self-creation. There’s a great sense of security in familiarity and staying in your comfort zone, even when it’s been traumatizing and painful.

Letting go of the Past – the Process

Once you’ve decided to honestly let go of your past story and feel excited about creating yourself anew, you can start by selecting the memories you want to erase. These can either be ones that were incurred with a specific person or a certain type memories usually represented by a phase or period in your life. You want to become clear on which ones they are because it requires a hypnotic state and an imaginary process where you have to use your conscious mind to direct your subconscious on what to do. If you’re uncertain or vague in anyway, you’ll lose your thought process as soon as you become totally relaxed.

Once you’ve decided, you want to make sure you fully abstract the “life lesson” the memories held for you in terms of what they helped you to realize so you can retain that knowledge and not repeat past mistakes.

Meditative  Process:

  • Get into a comfortable position, either sitting upright in a chair with both feet flat on the ground, preferably touching, relaxing your hands on your lap or thighs, palms down; or by lying down flat on your back with your neck well supported, legs straight and feet touching and hands relaxed palms down on either your chest, abdomen, or thighs. It’s important that your spine is straight and you create a “closed system” energetically.
  • Get comfortable, then close your eyes and turn your full attention inward and start by focusing on your breathing. Take a couple of long, slow, deep breaths to relax, and mentally scan your body for any discomfort, making any adjustments necessary to produce a comfortable feeling. Then relax your breathing to a normal, rhythmic motion.
  • You want to “talk to yourself” as a means of walking yourself (subconscious) through an intentional process, telling yourself why you’re doing what you’re doing as a form of verbal instructions (directing the process involved).
  • Breathe in relaxation, exhale all tension and stress, and with each breath you feel your body relaxing.
  • Place your attention on your feet – picture your feet or center your attention on the sensations in your feet, and tell them to relax . . . then feel them relax. Once relaxed, move your attention up to your calves, tell them to relax, and feel them relaxing . . . do this all the way up your body to the top of your head, until you’re fully relaxed and somewhat unaware of your body.
  • Have a sincere and brief conversation with your body about how good it feels to relax . . . the more you relax the better it feels, and tell it that this is a “safe space” that’s created by you, and it’s okay to just relax and let go. . .  . speak to yourself with a firm yet comforting and soothing voice.
  • Connect with your higher source of power . . . imagine a sphere of beautiful white light directly above your head. Feel it’s love and warmth as a very pleasurable sensation, then mentally ask the light to enter you, or draw it down intentionally, and feel it as it completely fills your head, saturating your brain with a beautiful white light, soothing and comforting you . . . as you continue to pull it down into your throat, filling your throat area, then down into your chest . . . abdomen, and legs, and down to your feet. As you feel your body filled with the beautiful, warm sensation of the light, feel it’s protection and comfort, and reaffirm that this is a safe place and it’s ok to just let go and go deeper and deeper down . . . down into a peaceful feeling of calm relaxation . . .
  • Then picture the person (or event) the memories are associated with, and tell yourself that you’re going to abstract from your body all the energy and etheric substance or aka from the various organs and parts of your body they’re located – the body holds memory as emotion – tell your subconscious to become aware of all the sensations within your body associated with this person.
  • Place your attention on the sensations, and imagine them as a form of liquid light and visualize yourself using your hands to enter into and pull out the fluid-like energy of the emotion and memory from your organs and muscles . . . .  
  • Do this every place you feel the sensations of the memory, while accumulating it and rolling it into a ball.
  • Once it’s been surgically abstracted and formed into a ball of liquid light, tell yourself to find the aka (etheric) cords attached at the heart center, and cut them using  a dagger or knife. Imagine doing it and see it as disconnected completely from all parts of your body and as a ball of light in your hands, then mentally thank this person in a sincere manner for the lessons they served to teach you, and let go of the ball sending it back out into the universe to be recycled so it can benefit someone else.
  • Watch it floating in front of you and being projected away until it completely disappears into the dark. Tell yourself it’s gone forever and bid it farewell.
  • After it’s completely gone imagine a hand whisking your energy field briskly, clearing out all residue, then seal your aura and body with a bubble-like shield of light, telling your subconscious that it can’t ever come back in and will be deflected back out into the universe. That you’re protected and safe . . .
  • Sense your body free of the emotional sensations while telling yourself how good it feels. Create an anchor for this state as a picture or word that you use that will instantly produce the state and can be fired at will.
  • Introduce the new memory you want to replace it with, associating the emotional trigger of the old memory to the new one. Wait until you get the new memory just the way you want it, and then replay it over and over in your mind until it comes automatically in complete form.  Then produce the emotional feeling of the old memory while instantly playing the new memory in its place. Do this repeatedly until it becomes natural.
  • In order to conclude the session, say to yourself . . . “and so it is, and so must it be”. And slowly bring yourself back into conscious awareness while telling yourself that you’ll wake alert and feeling better than ever . . . .

Most hypnotic processes only require one session, depending on how deep you go and how proficient you are at processes of deep meditation that utilize guided imagery, and your confidence in guiding yourself. If it doesn’t work with one session, simply repeat until it becomes permanent. Change produced by subconscious programming can often be a bit tricky to realize because it comes by simply “forgetting”. You lose awareness of the memories because you no longer think about them, and can go weeks or even months before it dawns on you that you haven’t thought about it in a long time. When you do think about the memories, you do it in a very detached and matter of fact way, with absolutely no emotion. As you realize that you haven’t thought about it for a while, you forget about it again, and never think about it unless there’s a direct association. It’s no longer compulsive or emotionally painful, and you no longer dwell in it uncontrollably.
