The Relationship of the Three Aspects of the Mind and how to Work with them to Self-Create

 

The primary law of the “3 in 1”, represented by the triad in Sacred Geometry, the Supernal in the Kabbalah, the Trinity in Christianity, and the 3 upper chakra’s of the subtle energy system of the body, is considered the primary law, because it’s inherent in every single aspect of the material world, and is the law that gives birth to all other laws which naturally emerge from it. The Dyad (2 interlacing spheres) as the masculine and feminine aspects of the same thing that together birth the triad (3) as a unique combination of selected aspects of both that form an internal entity (fetus) that becomes the template (archetype) for the external, physical reality as its manifestation, which is represented by the Tetrad (4). All physical manifestation is represented by the number 4, which is really the number 2, representing that all of life is dual in nature. While we traditionally say that there are 4 Elements that make up the material world (fire, water, air, and earth), in fact there are really only 2, fire and water, because both air and earth are reproduced as combinations of fire and water in varying degrees and densities.

Air, which is the traditional symbol of spirit is produced by, or contains within it, both fire (heat) and water (moisture). From the material plane of form we say that air is the product of the sun’s heat on water, producing a vapor that rises above it as air. From the spiritual plane of unity that contains within it the potential for creating the material, air can be seen as the unification of fire and water in it’s potential state, which divides into dual aspects of itself as it descends from the plane of pure potential (unformed) in order to manifest in the material realm as informed.

Form is produced by both a passive and active component, as matter that’s charged with a frequency, giving it consciousness as a formula of information (DNA) where it’s organized into a holographic astral-etheric form as an “imagined image” (phantom) that becomes the blueprint for producing its material equivalent or twin double. All material form is accompanied by a soul as a mind-field that provides the energetic means for formulating it, holding it together as a unified being, animating it with biological processes necessary for giving it life, and a personality or propensities that produce natural behaviors.

All physical form is a product of the mind at different stages of formation, often referred to as the spirit, soul, mind, and body, and in science as the 4 states of matter as charged (electrified) plasma, gas, liquid, and solid. In Esoteric Sciences these are referred to as the causal, mental, astral, and etheric/physical planes of existence. All physical form is 3-fold in nature as a unification of invisible forces in varying stages of solidification. The mind, or energy field of the body, synonymous with the soul, which surrounds and permeates the body while extending quite some distance into the outer environment, is 3-fold in nature as a Higher Mind-Self, and the 2 lower aspects of the subconscious and self-conscious minds.

Again, this dynamic is represented by the triangle or pyramid (3 angles, 4 sides that form a square base), where the single point on the top exists on a higher plane, and the 2 lower points are parallel to each other on the same plane. Horizontal lines as a relationship always represent existing on the same material plane or level, and vertical or right-angle lines represent the movement between planes or the path that connects 2 or more planes. The 2 right angles moving down as the division of the One, existing in polarity to each other form a “range” as the distance between them, which can be measured in degrees, symbolizes the dual nature of the higher mind which contains both feminine and masculine aspects as the subconscious (feminine) and conscious (masculine) mind of the material body and outer plane, all of which vibrate at the same frequency as a range of vibration that structures both inner and outer material form to be of the same dynamic pattern on different scales, magnitude, and levels of complexity.

As human beings we are multidimensional in nature, just like all of the material world, except we also possess higher capacities of the mind to self-create by way of choice and will. We are creative beings always in the process of becoming by way of how we use our own mind to create ourselves. This process is always going on with or without our awareness. Our subconscious mind is the same mind we share with all of the natural world and the animal kingdom of which we are natural part of as a physical, mammalian body. We are born into the world with our subconscious mind fully active and developed, and are initially conditioned through a purely passive and receptive manner that’s much like a form of training produced through repetition of the same ideas and dynamics being played out in distinct emotional states.

Our formative conditioning, conducted in a purely unconscious and spontaneous manner, which becomes our “automated” mind-set and attitude, forms our mental paradigm and habituated emotional states that’s programmed to consistently play out the same dynamics as life dramas that tell a certain type of story. Whatever dynamics we’ve been trained to, we automatically see in others and all situations, have an immediate react to, engage in magnetically, and act to both initiate and cooperatively participate in by naturally playing a role in it. These programs, much like instinct in animals, run automatically without our direct awareness, and play out consistently shaping our reality and how we experience ourselves within that reality, which shapes our character and identity (self-image), both of which are naturally produced from unconscious habitual states.

The subconscious mind operates strictly out of memory, and speaks the “language” of emotions and direct experience. It gives birth to the self-conscious mind, which is what we call the “thinking mind”, or brain-oriented, frontal cortex aspect of the mind that begins fully developing at puberty when we begin “thinking for ourselves” (separate from our parents) and begin forming “internal dialogue” as self-talk that we identify with. The self-conscious aspect of the mind that’s capable of problem-solving and reasoning for itself, being born of the subconscious and body, forms its identity with or from the body and material world, which forms into what we call the “ego”.

The ego, being an identification of the spirit with the body and the material world, forgets its true identity as the soul that both produced and maintains it. This aspect of the mind, the “thinking by talking” aspect, has the ability to step outside of its own emotional, habitual tendencies, and become self-directed through its ability to decide between different options, and willfully act out those decisions, breaking habitual patterns and producing new experiences that become new memories for the subconscious mind to act out in an automatic fashion, producing new ways of being that alter the vibratory structure of its mental paradigm.

The subconscious mind is passive and receptive in nature, like animals, and doesn’t have the ability to think for itself as perceiving in new ways that are outside of its memory-oriented perception and habitual emotional states. The self-conscious mind is active, and not only acts as the “gatekeeper” for the subconscious, determining what’s passively accepted and allowed in to take hold, and what’s rejected or resisted and kept out. The self-conscious mind has the ability to reason and logically evaluate and judge ideas as being right and true, or wrong and an error. This is the “willful” aspect of the mind that has the ability to choose what it becomes a part of and what it doesn’t, and can override unconscious, automatic, habitual tendencies with new ideas that it intentionally acts out instead. Breaking old patterns and forming new ones, which when practiced repetitively over a period of time, become new habits as the programming for the subconscious mind to run in an automatic fashion.

The primary motive of the subconscious mind is self-preservation, achieved by maintaining habitual and familiar patterns. The primary motive of the self-conscious mind is to create itself as something new and better in an intentional and deliberate way. It seeks to become through its own willful actions that bring the habitual aspect of the subconscious mind under its control, by intentionally reprogramming it, training it to new behaviors. Because these two aspects of the mind are a part of the same mind as polar and complementary opposites, they interact in a completely natural fashion as being of the same nature. The subconscious mind, being driven by emotions and “thinking” in terms of direct experience as imaginary realities being played out in the mind as memory of various sorts, is what produces what we call our “ordinary thinking” that runs constantly like a broken record that plays the same memories, ideas, and dialogue over, and over, and over in a repetitive, somewhat sporadic, and habitual manner. This is what most people refer to when they use the term “thinking”.

Brain waves

Many people, or should I say most (few exceptions), live their entire life consumed with automatic thoughts that play out in a compulsive manner that keep them locked into the emotional states of those thoughts and memories. Most people are shaped and determined by their conditioning and the outer world of subjective experience that’s produced by their conditioned mindset. We become whatever dynamics and mindset we’re trained to and form habits out of. The subconscious mind naturally runs the conscious mind, forming habitual thinking that’s always playing memories of the past in the present, creating more experiences of the same nature, regenerating and multiplying more of the same type of memories. Through habitual psychological patterns we’re self-created, self-perpetuating, and self-sustaining. We only evolve according to our life conditions and how we’re programmed by others to be of the same nature and character, and produce more of the same type of dynamic patterns as emotional dramas that form our life’s story.

By realizing the natural tendencies of our mind, we have the ability to take control of ourselves and our life and discipline our thinking into concentrated ideas that we employ deliberately as a natural way of becoming self-determined. The self-conscious, active aspect of the mind has the ability to detach from its own habitual tendencies, view life from a detached perspective, and thereby realize it has the ability to bring the body under its control in order to serve it by accepting the ideas that it chooses to willfully acted out “through the body” in order to produce new types of experiences. While simultaneously creating new types of self-dialogue as the story we form out of the “meaning” of those experiences that serve as new memories associated to positive emotions, which when repeated, the subconscious mind will eventually habituate into automatic perceptions, emotional states, and behaviors.

We all have the ability through our higher capacity of choice and will to take hold of and begin determining our own self-development. We are not a product of our conditioning and genetic inheritance as we have been led to believe, but these merely form the basis of our primary personality and mental paradigm out of which we continue to grow and develop it. Our soul is in a constant state of evolving through its own ability to employ one aspect of itself to act on the other aspect, and together create itself in new ways by employing new qualities that form new characteristics.

Our subconscious mind, which can be equated to the DNA of our body, which also works out of memory and is strongly influenced by emotions, is completely programmable and trainable by the self-conscious mind through intentional use of the will to feed it new types of experiences that are of a certain emotional quality that re-inform it to be able to utilize new patterns in an automatic and natural way to regenerate the molecular structure of the body as a correspondence. In the mental plane, the active, willful, self-conscious mind, which is birthed by the subconscious mind as its active component, has the ability to “act on itself” to create and transform itself to whatever quality and character it wants and chooses to be.

Likewise, the higher mind, which exists on a higher, parallel plane, is also active as the “Higher Will”, and therefore acts on and through the subconscious mind in the material realm, in much the same way the self-conscious mind can. But the Higher Mind can’t directly communicate with the self-conscious mind, which is active also and exists fully within the material world, and so it communicates through the subconscious mind which reflects it onto the self-conscious mind as what we call intuition, which comes as “feelings” and our own internal voice being led by a different authority. We can know the difference between subconscious impulses and higher communication, because the subconscious doesn’t use “talking” to communicate, it uses emotional urges, desire, and internal images to control our own thinking. The messages communicated by the Higher Mind to the subconscious mind, are projected by the subconscious into the outer environment, which is the “sphere of awareness” of the self-conscious mind, where it then directs our attention onto it and we experience it intuitively as a form of coincidence, synchronicity, and self-realization.

Higher guidance comes through an inner voice that’s not “of us” in terms of our bodily self, and directs, guides, and informs us of things that can’t normally emerge out of our paradigm and normal way of thinking. It’s not emotionally driven or ego oriented, and it has no needs so there’s no effort to control, it comes as a parental mature voice that calmly and intelligently informs of us of other options and ways of looking at things that allow us to see things in a new way and make new decisions based on the information gleaned from it. It never acts to make decisions for us, as it never violates our choice and free will, but acts to give us new perspectives and realizations that we then willingly choose of our own volition.

Communication as information about things in our life that are playing out without our awareness also come through dreams, because dreams are a reality produced by the subconscious mind as the positive receptor of information that it absorbs from all around it and uses to produce a reality that’s highly symbolic and irrational in nature. So much of our guidance comes through dreams, yet like all subliminal communication, we have to be able to know the difference between energy absorbed and informed from our environment and others, and energy as information and guidance from our Higher Self. We can tell the difference through intuition, because dreams produced by random energies around us don’t affect us because we realize they’re not of us and don’t pertain to us. They seem somewhat foreign to us. Dreams as unconscious aspects of ourselves given life as a means of expressing and making us aware of them, only remind us of what we already know through deeper, more subtle feelings, whereas guidance that’s intuitive in nature, is intimate and felt as an inherent part of us that doesn’t stem from our current constitution or memory oriented past, but provides us with a new idea or direction that couldn’t be “self-produced” with our current make-up and life circumstances.

In order to begin working with our own mind to self-create, we have to bring our habitual, random thinking under control and learn how to intentionally focus our mind only on what we want to create. Concentrate on it without disruption from habitual thinking, and bring the concentrated idea into action of some sort. Our power lies in our ability to concentrate on chosen ideas and forming them in into realities in our imagination as the “experience” of them, while consistently associating positive emotions to them. This takes an idea and turns it into a reality as an emotional experience of it that replicates and imitates a memory. The subconscious mind of the body works out of memory to produce all of our behaviors and connect us with the same dynamic in everything around us.

By turning a desired idea into a full sensory (emotional) reality, we give the subconscious mind a pattern to act out producing an equivalent material effect or manifestation as an “actual” outer experience of the inner reality. In this way all manifestations are of the will as a combination of an idea as thoughts and feelings (sensations) that provide the template for outer manifestation as direct experiences of its own making.  As we think, feel, and imagine, we create, first inwardly as an imagined scenario that becomes our perceptual lens, then outwardly as our perception and natural activities. Any thought as an imagined reality that we dwell in with intensity, gives rise to an electromagnetic field that acts as an “attraction factor” that’s a form of gravitational field between us and the components in our environment that are a part of the same reality and can play a part in co-creating it as a shared experience.

In this way, the Higher Will, which manifests through us as thoughts and feelings produces and organizes all of our life experiences. What we call our will and our Higher Will, are actually the same thing, because one births and sustains the other, and all come out of the same nature. All contents of the subconscious and conscious minds are contained within the higher self, which is what births them in the lower, material realm. First by producing the subconscious personality as the accumulated memory of the soul that exists as “mental and emotional states” that have natural tendencies, temperament, and a disposition inherent in them, that births the conscious mind as its active component that has the ability to act on itself in a willful manner to create and transform itself through self-produced experiences that becomes a part of its soul memory.

All self-creation comes through masterful use of choice and will as our ability to think and decide for ourselves, then embody that idea, becoming one with it, and acting it out to produce an experience that we then get a sense of ourselves through, associate and identify with. As we shape our identity through self-produced experiences that extend beyond and outside of our conditioning, we transform ourselves at the soul level, which is the accumulation of all our life experiences as memory produced through both conscious and unconscious forms of self-expression and self-creation. We create ourselves by how we create our experiences. How we experience the events of our life, whether self-produced or other produced, comes through how we use our own mind to tell ourselves a story about it. We create both the character of the story, and the story as being told by the character through living it.

Self-Mastery: Mastering the Ability to Control and Direct your Thoughts and Attention

While knowledge as theory gives us the basis for practice, we only truly “learn” (live and earn) by bringing the knowledge into practice somehow in our daily life. We only truly know what we attain through direct experience and can willfully demonstrate as a part of our normal abilities and behavior. Conceptualizing something in a purely theoretical form while frequently contemplating or discussing it will have a tendency to explore and penetrate the deeper levels of an idea, but until we “become one with an idea” and experience it in a direct way by being it, we never actually acquire or own it. Knowledge that’s contemplated or studied but never applied is merely a form of entertainment or mental hobby.  Whenever we study something, we’re always using other people’s ideas and perhaps imagining them in our own way, but we only really know if something is true or produces what it claims to through the direct experience of it.

We have to always maintain a sense of equilibrium between the body, soul, and spirit by utilizing them simultaneously through an actual practice. One-sided training is not only unproductive, but it can cause an imbalance that can be destructive and produce undesirable effects. This is obvious in our modern day society’s tendency to try and educate without first teaching the ability to control compulsive, random thinking and the ability to concentrate without interruption from unwanted thoughts for an extended period of time. The only knowledge we truly maintain at the eternal level of the soul, which is our “nature” that forms our character, is what we build into our muscle by turning it into a habit that becomes a part of our natural behavior, way of perceiving, and daily lifestyle.

Applying knowledge not only requires the knowledge itself as a theory of some kind that gives you the means to start, but it also requires you to develop “qualities” that are necessary in applying it. Theory is the intellectual aspect, practice is the intuitive aspect as a process, and art is the manifestation as a result. While we think in materialistic terms that we’re acquiring the skill implied by the knowledge, from the soul perspective, which is always about “being”, it’s the qualities we have to employ and develop in order to apply it that’s the actual knowledge in energetic and intuitive terms as a form of soul conditioning. In all spiritual practices the most basic conditions for development are intention, diligence, patience, perseverance, concentration, and devotion. It’s comes as a love and desire for the knowledge by becoming one with it in spirit, mind (soul), and body. It requires diligence and a deep sense of utter devotion. While you can be kind, forgiving, and lenient towards others, you must develop an attitude of being studious, unrelenting, and pitiless on yourself. You have to exercise a stringent form of self-discipline in everything you do. Set high standards and expectations, and then push yourself to not only achieve them, but master them.

Only what’s practiced in a consistent and diligent manner becomes a habit. When something becomes a habit it arises in us naturally. It becomes a part of our natural tendencies in any given situation and forms our natural perception and behaviors. By building practices into our daily lifestyle as a part of our normal routine, we faithfully employ them and develop ourselves by way of them. Once we have become accustomed to a particular exercise, the urge for it comes naturally. It’s only when we begin doing something as a natural part of our being that we have actually “acquired it” as part of our souls memory which forms our inner nature. We have to always be disciplined and diligent in all our efforts in order to progress and thereby ascend.

The very first step in any form of spiritual development is controlling, disciplining, and mastering your thoughts. The mind has a tendency to wander constantly and operate out of autopilot most of the time. Our thoughts come so natural and automatic that even when we are disciplining ourselves, we’re often in the midst of a thought process before we even realize what we’re doing, and are able to bring ourselves back into a focused state. This is perfectly natural, and in the beginning, when first employing your will to direct and redirect your thoughts, it’ll be a constant process. However, like anything, the more you’re able to stay focused and continually realize and direct your thoughts, the easier and more natural it becomes. This is why patience and perseverance are required. So don’t let yourself become discouraged in the beginning when it can seem somewhat difficult.

In order to cultivate abilities, we need to start off with simple practices that  we perform two or three times a day for five to fifteen minutes at a time. It’s recommended to do these in a balanced way in the morning upon rising, midday when relaxing, and in the evening. Start off with small time frames of 5 minutes, then as you master them, gradually increase the amount of time you spend doing them to 10 minutes. Increase the frequency you do each in whatever way is appropriate according to your daily activities. Always start with small steps and only after you have mastered each step, work your way up. Each process must be mastered before moving on to the next, because the next step requires full use of the previous step which lays the foundation for it. We have to be able to use certain abilities in order to perform other abilities that are an extension or outgrowth of it.

Equilibrium of spirit (still), soul (will), and body (automatic) are always important to maintain and practice together because they ideally operate in a cohesive manner. The problem most have with controlling and directing their thoughts is that the lower mind of the body that produces a continuous stream of automatic and redundant thoughts has been allowed to run unchecked, while the willful mind of the soul has been greatly underused or ignored completely, and the still, empty mind of the spirit is something many feel they can’t actually achieve. This is due to developing in an unbalanced way with sole emphasis on the lower mind. For this reason, development that’s undertaken intentionally must always be conducted in a balanced way, exercising all 3 levels of the mind and body. So for this exercise, which is in 3 parts, we’ll work on developing the ability to observe or simply witness your own thoughts and bring them under control, discipline and direct your thoughts through concentration, and the ability to master your thoughts by stilling and emptying your mind of verbal thoughts altogether and entering into the experience of pure being.

Preparation for each step:  All exercises should be done in a private and quiet environment where you won’t be disturbed for 5 to 15 minutes, while in a fully relaxed position.  Don’t do them when feeling tired, as you must remain fully awake and aware throughout the process. Awareness is key. It may be a good idea to splash your face and upper body with cold water before you begin. Do not fall asleep during these exercises or they won’t be beneficial.

  • Sit or lay down with your body fully supported.
  • Close your eyes to block out distraction, and focus on the rhythm of your breathing. Let your mind enter into the rhythm.
  • Relax your entire body by setting the intention to relax, then mentally directing it to relax, and then feeling it relax.

Step 1) Thought Control

       This step allows you to begin gaining an awareness of thoughts that normally operate in a completely automatic and unconscious fashion. This is the habitual and compulsive aspect of the subconscious mind controlling the conscious and willful mind. Whatever we focus on and think about we become, and we act to create more of in our present situation. When thoughts are allowed to run in an unchecked manner, we lend our will to them and we create in our life in an unconscious manner. On the spiritual plane “thought is action”, and thoughts are how we create in the most fundamental sense on the material plane. So the first step to any form of conscious development is gaining control over our thoughts through self-awareness and being able to intentionally guide and determine our thoughts in a willful manner.

  • Allow a natural train of thought to form and spontaneously begin free-flowing. Make no attempt to control these thoughts, simply observe them to become aware of what they are.
  • Notice that most pertain to whatever is happening in your life at the moment, issues that have a strong emotional content, family or relationship issues, job related issues, whatever is weighing on your mind, and simply redundant meaningless thoughts that are purely habitual and automatic in nature.
  • When thoughts arise that tend to “pull you into them” where you begin dwelling in them, simply stop, pull your attention away, and allow them to continue in a free-flowing stream of thought while silently observing them from a detached perspective of not being “in them as a part of them”, but rather remaining free and independent of them, observing them from a distance watching them as they flow by, or as they rise and fall.
  • Don’t try to control your train of thought or lose sight of yourself by getting side-tracked and dwelling in any one thought, but simply observe them in as attentive way as possible gaining an awareness of them.
  • Be conscious of everything, and don’t try to hurry the exercise. Let it flow naturally while giving it your full attention.
  • You’ll notice that in the beginning you’re bombarded with thoughts in an almost chaotic manner as they quickly pass by. Pay close attention to them and try to remember them.
  • As you become aware of what normally operates as an unconscious and automatic process, you’ll also gain a natural form of control over it. Awareness itself brings a sense of control as the natural use of your will.
  • You’ll notice from one exercise to the next that these thoughts appear less chaotic and will gradually begin diminishing until only a few thoughts emerge in your consciousness as if coming from afar.

Practice this first step until you gain the ability to easily control your thoughts by becoming aware of them. Mastering this first step is critical to the development of all other steps. In all forms of self-development nothing is more important than gaining control over your thoughts and being able to direct them in a willful and intentional manner. Only move on to the next step when you have completed this step sufficiently and have mastered it.

2) Thought Discipline and Developing Concentration

       This step deals with being able to concentrate our thoughts without letting other thoughts obtrude. What usually prevents us from concentrating solely on one idea for an extended period of time is that other thoughts having to do with our daily chores and annoyances spontaneously arise and distract us away from what we were thinking about. We must learn how to avoid thoughts that do not belong in our personal life while only entertaining those that do, and in doing so, we’ll become a different person altogether. In this exercise we will develop our ability to be present in our daily life in a fully attentive manner, and be able to concentrate our mind solely on one idea for an extended period of time without interruption from unwanted and meaningless thoughts.

  • Pick an idea, subject, or concept and direct all of your attention into that thought alone. As you concentrate on it and other thoughts obtrusively arise, redirecting your attention in an automatic fashion, become aware of them, and then simply remove you attention from them and place it back on your chosen subject. Resist all distractions repeatedly until they begin subsiding and you no longer have a problem staying focused for extended periods of time by maintaining full control of your attention.
  • Move this same idea out into your daily life and apply it in a broader sense. Whatever it is that you’re doing, be fully present in it with your full attention on it, and anytime a distraction arises as a thought that doesn’t pertain to the moment, become aware of it, and redirect your attention back into your present situation.
  • Remain present in your daily situations and only allow thoughts that pertain to the moment or situation occupy your mind. Anytime thoughts of the past or another situation arise and steal your attention, realize it, and redirect your attention back into the moment.
  • When you’re at work, block out thoughts of your personal life and focus all of your attention on work. When you leave work and go home to your private life, leave all thoughts of work behind, and think only about what pertains to your private life. As thoughts of work arise while in your private life, become aware of them, and consciously redirect your attention back into your present situation.
  • The more you practice the ability to control your attention, the easier and more natural it becomes.

This practice when mastered will have a huge impact on all areas of your life, and will greatly improve your ability to enter into a truly creative mode. The only time we can actually create in our life in an intentional and meaningful manner is in the “present moment”. Do not move on to the next step until this one has been mastered. Each step is required in order to be able to achieve the next.

3)  Mastery of Thoughts and Residing in Eternal Peace

This step teaches you how to create a complete vacancy of mind that’s void of thought and fully present in your inner sense of pure being. By subduing all active thought you enter into a fully relaxed state of inner peace and calmness. All stress subsides and you’re able to experience everything in a direct and actual manner rather than through the commentary of your thoughts. When all thought subsides we enter into a form of rapport with the present and we experience everything as it is in this moment without filtering it through the past and reshaping it to be like us through how we think about it. In this way, we form an entirely different relationship with life and become an entirely different person as a result.

  • Create a complete vacancy of mind while resisting all thoughts that try to command your attention. Empty your mind completely, and enter into a state of presence and pure being.
  • Rigorously reject any thought that competes for attention, and return to a complete mental vacancy. Do this repeatedly until thoughts begin completely subsiding and you exist in a state of pure beingness for an extended period of time.
  • Bring this same practice into the ordinary moments of your daily life by becoming fully present in whatever you’re doing, empty your mind of mental commentary and habitual thinking, and simply perceive things as they are in that moment. Form an expanded awareness of everything around you without letting thoughts about it enter your mind.

When you are able to stay in this state for a full 10 minutes, the purpose of this exercise has been achieved. This is important because it lays the foundation necessary for continued development.

Once you have mastered these three basic mind exercises and learned how to control and direct your attention and thoughts, you’ll be ready to move on to other steps in self-mastery that require self-control and your ability to use your will in an intentional and deliberate manner. By learning how to perceive things without a mental commentary or by bringing past ideas into the present and using them to create your experience of the present, you’ll be able to naturally correct perceptual errors that have become automatic and perceive things in a new light as they actually are a part from you and your preconceived judgments about them.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Summary:      

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

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

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

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

Forgiveness – Transforming Judgment, Detachment, and the Key to Liberation

 

 

The idea of forgiveness can be a somewhat “slippery” subject in terms of what it actually means and how to do it. Many can put on the façade of appearing to forgive on the outside while still harboring the feelings that led to the perceived need to forgive on the inside. In order to honestly forgive as an internal process of realization that dissolves ill will and incorrect perceptions and instills a sense of inner peace, you have to learn to look at it from a different perspective where you realize there’s no need to forgive because no harm has been caused to you. All ‘perceived’ harm caused to us by another is the result of an incorrect perception on our part that comes by looking at it within the same plane or level of reality, or is due to the fact that we share the same ‘mental and emotional dynamic’ and so participate in living it out with them as though it’s real.

Whenever we reside in or are conditioned to the same dynamics and story-line as another, we ‘resonate with them’ and are effected by them in terms of ‘feeling hurt by them’ somehow due to their actions towards us. They say or do something that hurts us, makes us angry, or creates an intense sense of losing something we value, and we not only react to it in a like manner, playing a role in the drama that ensues, but we continue to dwell in vicious, condemning, criticizing, and hateful thoughts long after the fact, playing them over and over in our mind letting them eat at us, and ultimately come to define us.

We engage in the act of judging and cursing the other in a compulsive and seemingly uncontrollable fashion, while simultaneously perceiving the need to forgive because we’ve been hurt, damaged, suffered a severe loss, or have been reduced and diminished somehow. Yet as long as we stay in the same ‘shared mindset’ as a drama and behavioral dynamic, we can’t ever really forgive them because we continue to use our will and mental power to keep the perceived offense alive by continuing to think about it and relive it while revolting and attacking back, or somehow getting even by hurting them in the same way we imagine we’ve been hurt.

Yet the part of this equation we often fail to recognize, is that what we’re calling ‘being hurt’ is actually something that we are willingly doing to ourselves with our own mind and body by readily taking in the energy being projected at us by the behavior of another, letting it take hold inside of us, and giving it life by letting it completely run our emotions and imagined thoughts. We are in reality choosing to let another use our will to continue hurting us over and over by continuing to harbor and think about it while replaying it in our mind in a constant and compulsive manner. We are in fact cooperating and fully participating in co-creating the reality of the shared drama.

The strange truth of all of life that we often fail to realize in the most fundamental sense is that no one is ever doing anything ‘to us’ in terms of how we ‘experience’ the events of our life. While someone can certainly hurt us physically, behave in a way that causes us to feel pain, take away something we value, or lash out and attack us with the intention of hurting and diminishing us by captivating us under their spell, how we ‘form the experience’ of whatever happens is something we completely create with our mind and emotions. Only we form our own thoughts and tell ourselves a story about things that give them the meaning they have and what they mean about us, the other person, and the way the world is, as a result. The meaning we give things that forms our story about it is usually based on the emotional charge of the actual event, or is what acts to invoke that ‘state of mind’ that we start using to create in other areas of our life as well. A story we begin telling ourselves about being betrayed, not wanted, used, etc., can become a life theme that begins shaping us in all areas of our life.

We can just as easily choose not to let the emotions and actions of others in, not give them life inside of us, and deflect them back to them by remaining steadfast in the realization of what’s actually happening. As another person lives out their drama as a theme of some kind that’s actualized through their perceptions, emotional states, and behaviors, is simply showing us in very immediate and direct terms who they are as a person and what their model of the world is. Their actions only reveal ‘who they are’ in unmistakable terms. They’re showing us the delusion they’re conditioned with and the story they’re acting to tell with their life. It says nothing about us, unless we let it. We have to agree to play out the same drama in order to enter into a reactive state and respond in a like manner, which is the only thing that makes it real.

The problem that we have in life is that it’s difficult to stay conscious, especially through extreme experiences of emotional intensity or where we feel like a lot is at stake and we stand to lose a lot. It’s the emotions that are at play that are very magnetic and draw us into things in a completely unconscious manner because they create an internal experience that makes them seem real. Emotions are the energetic language of the material plane that ‘infect’ us, stimulate us internally, activating and causing us to take on the same emotion, which amplifies it. Emotions serve as ‘themes’ that have whole realities in them as the type of experience that naturally produces, increases, and gives us more of that emotion.

When infected with an emotional charge, feeling a pronounced and often overwhelming internal sensation, we tend to automatically take it on and allow it to run our mind producing the illusion of the emotion as a shared reality and control our behavior as an equivalent response to that reality. It literally renders us unconscious and we go into an automatic mode. We’re being completely controlled and determined by the other person through a shared and agreed upon illusion as the story we act out together with them. This is the most basic form of choice and free will that’s engaged in at a purely unconscious level. We feel as if we have no control over it and are subject to it as a form of victim. We give our power over to the same natural forces that are governing the other person’s behavior.

The way to overcome the laws and events of the lower material plane, is to rise above them to the higher plane governed by complementary laws, and use those laws to counteract the lower ones. The higher plane that’s parallel to this one as the subtle plane of higher consciousness, where the “Higher Self” resides, looking over and guiding us on the lower plane, does so through a form of total detachment from the illusions (emotions) of the lower plane. This higher consciousness, which is also a part of us, operates through what’s called the ‘witnessing’ faculty of the mind, and when employed by perceiving something from a detached perspective that doesn’t make it personal or internalize it, we can ‘see the illusion’ of the situation that the other person is caught up in and perceiving as being real.

When we move into a position and perspective of detachment and look at everything in a non-personal way, we can not only see it clearly as an illusion (because we don’t share it, which is what makes it real for us), but it doesn’t act to produce an effect in us. We’re not stimulated emotionally by it. The emotional charge of it doesn’t enter our mind and body because we don’t resonate with it (we only absorb what we resonate with). We can see it from their perspective in an unemotional and dissociated manner. It doesn’t enter into our mind and body and produce a ‘like’ effect. Once we can view it in a neutral manner without participating in it, we don’t form an emotional reaction to it. It’s only in the emotional reaction that we feel hurt and suffer pain of some kind that causes hatred, resentment, animosity, pain, and the desire for revenge by hurting them back in the same way and to the same degree that they hurt us.

When we can learn how to exercise full control over our own mind and don’t allow it to be controlled by others and natural forces by engaging in emotional dramas that are delusional in nature (made up), we can stay fully conscious and self-aware in even the most intense situations. If we cultivate a constant perception of being detached from the world around us (in it but not of it), realizing that nothing anybody else does has anything to do with us unless we let it, we begin cultivating peace of mind that comes from residing in the truth rather than delusions. When we don’t take things personal, they don’t continue living in us long after the event has past. We don’t harbor ill will against the person and continue to constantly think bad thoughts as a form of retaliation and wanting to strike back, and it doesn’t become a part of our life or serve to define us in any way.

When we’re not hurt by the actions of others because we don’t live in the same reality or personal illusion as they do, there’s no need to forgive because no damage was done. We don’t poison ourselves with the negative thoughts as judgment over another, that’s actually only hurting us. As we imagine we’re judging another through criticizing, hurtful, vindictive thoughts, we are programming ourselves with those thoughts, saturating our body with the chemistry of those thoughts, and proceed to continue creating more experiences of the same nature. We use the reality produced by those thoughts as a perceptual filter to see ‘all’ people through, and we become the “type of person” indicated by our judgments as emotional thoughts. We perceive ourselves through our own judgments as being the complementary polar opposite as the victim (subject to) of another person’s behavior. We become subject to our own judgments as a constant thought process and emotional state produced by those thoughts. We become by way of our own thoughts and emotions as our state of mind (vibratory frequency).

As we program ourselves with our own emotional states, we vibrate at that frequency, and become a magnet for more of “those type of people” who will willingly cooperate in acting out more of the same type of dynamics, giving us more of the same type of feelings, emotions, and experiences. We perceive everyone and everything (including ourselves) out of our perceptual lens and filters created by our thoughts, judgments, and the meaning we give things. We become the mental, emotional, and physical equivalent of our perceptions.

When we detach ourselves from the reality of others, seeing ourselves as not being a part of the same delusion (conditioning), and realize in absolute terms that their behavior says nothing about us but only reveals who they are and what type of issues they’re living out of that they’re mistaken for being real, we remain unaffected by them, and we never form hurtful, negative reactions to them. We never engage in, agree with, and act to cooperatively participate in playing a key role in their imaginary dramas. By realizing they’re only caught up in their own delusions and those of mass consciousness (what they’ve been taught by society), and don’t really have an actual awareness of what they’re doing in the sense that it’s their own creation, not only will you not form any ill will towards them, you can still feel a sense of love for them. Not a personal or romantic love, but the type of love you feel for a child that’s still learning and doesn’t realize what it’s doing in the real sense of things. As Jesus said in the midst of being tormented to death, “forgive them Father, for they know not what they do”. People honestly don’t realize they’re caught up in an illusion of their own making or subject to a form of mass hypnosis.

The perceived need to forgive simply shows you that you’re invested in, and affected by the same delusion as an emotional drama and behavioral dynamic. It can help you to realize things about yourself that may be difficult to see in the light of day. It’ll show you what your own ‘issues’ are that you’re not fully aware of and so still get “taken in” by. And of course it’s easy to see that whenever we harbor and keep alive negative thoughts about another that run through our mind in a compulsive manner, that it keeps us in that “emotional state” and “diminishes” us with the same ideas as the thoughts. We literally ‘become’ the same as our thoughts. When we hate someone, and dwell in the thoughts and emotions of hate, we lend our will to create hate and become hate itself in mind and body. We become a hateful person. We represent hate, and channel our life-force into the reality of hate. We simultaneously hate ourselves by becoming the channel for that reality, and use our will unconsciously to create it as our experience of life.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Denial

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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