Self-Mastery: Metamorphosis, Self-Creation, and the Art of Becoming

The true meaning of what we call “self-mastery” is our ability to master our own nature and resume conscious control over our higher capacities for creating ourselves. The fact is we’re always in the process of creating ourselves in every moment based on what we enter into relationship with, blend with energetically, and become like in nature. The mind, like the body, is comprised of vibrating essence that’s undergoing a constant process of metamorphosis by exchanging subtle energy with everything around it. The mind is a combination of both spirit and matter, and while it coagulates into temporary forms and becomes somewhat fixed and habitual in nature, it still remains in a constant flux and flow within the same fixed patterns and tendencies. The mind is what constitutes the inner nature and essence of form, and is what gives it its character and personality that determines how it functions and behaves, and what type of stories it naturally participates in.

Nothing can be truly “known” unless it’s experienced and lived. We “become” by way of our self-created experiences. In order to know ourselves in a certain way, we have to create an experience of it. By experiencing it, we get a sense of ourselves as the experience, and identify with “being that way”. The more experiences we have of a certain nature, the more firmly we become identified with being of the same nature. This is how we’re “conditioned” through the dramas and dynamics being played out that we’re a part of that serve to shape our personality and inner nature as our constitution and character. Once the initial pattern is established, we then act unconsciously to generate more and more of the same type of experiences as the outer expression of our inner nature that acts simultaneously to create us through habitual tendencies. The mind is fluid, malleable, and fixed simultaneously, and readily shapes into patterns as a self-organizing mechanism that then undergoes a constant state of re-organizing its essential structure by blending with other natures (minds) of a similar, yet diverse nature.

The Nature of the Mind as the Monad

The mind, as a combination of both spirit (archetypes) and matter (essence), forms a sphere of stabilized energy as an electromagnetic field of alternating currents, referred to in modern science as a Torus, and simply as a “sphere” or “Monad” in Spiritual Sciences. This electromagnetic sphere of energy is comprised of information that’s constantly being absorbed, broke down to complementary terms, then assimilated and synthesized into an overall information matrix, upgrading and modifying it. All energy as vibration contains information as patterns that produce form structured by an inherent self-organizing mechanism. The main frequency for our information matrix as our mental paradigm or “model of the world” is always absorbing and integrating other information of a similar nature, and reorganizing itself by incorporating.

We can only resonate with and thereby absorb into our mind information that’s of the same or similar frequency (nature) to us. While all have what we can call a “consistent frequency” that we vibrate at as our core, habitual frequency (mind-set), it can still act to attract, draw in, and integrate information that’s somewhat different yet close enough in nature that it serves to grow and evolve our model by expanding it. Other information that’s too different in nature and can’t be readily incorporated, that’s vibrating at a frequency to far apart from ours, can’t be recognized or understood, and so we can’t serve as a channel for it to manifest through us. For this reason, evolution only comes through a constant process of “learning by becoming one with other spheres” and steadily modifying our vibration and inner nature through gradual increments. When learning stops, growth stops, and we become fixed and start dying.

The mind-field as a Torus (sphere), represented in Sacred Geometry by the “Flower of Life” as a sphere of complementary electromagnetic currents circulating in opposite directions simultaneously within the same space, both expands and contracts as a form of respiration. As it expands out to a peripheral boundary, it’s simultaneously attracting and repulsing information, then turns back towards its core and draws the magnetized information into itself for metabolizing. As its vibration shifts through the incorporation of new energy, it no longer resonates with old, outdated information vibrating at a different rate, and it’s eliminated from the system as a form of waste by exhaling and sending it back out into the space around us as a form of recycling. So we’re constantly in the process of organizing and reorganizing ourselves as an energetic matrix of knowledge attained by blending into it and becoming of the same nature.

Sexual Union

The Sexual Principle

We’re always mixing and blending into the spheres of intelligent energy around us through the natural activity of the subconscious mind. We do this naturally and without any direct awareness of what’s taking place, and what’s acting “on” and “in” us to create us. As we blend and mix with other mind-fields, we take on the same nature and essence and start becoming like them in nature. This is a natural form of influence that’s going on all the time through the relationships we naturally form with everyone and everything around us. Whomever we associate with on a regular basis, we start becoming like in attitude and outlook, mind-set, emotions, thoughts, behaviors and tendencies, and so on. The stronger and more intimate the relationship, the more it effects and transforms us. No bond is greater than sexual intercourse, or mother and child, where an actual “fusion” takes place, or the child grows in and is produced by the same nature as the mother.

Anyone that we’ve had sexual intercourse with we permanently bond with in nature and essence, shaping us morally and determining our destiny through a shared nature. This is why marriage was only consummated through sexual intercourse where two people became “as one in spirit and mind”, and began operating as a single entity. This principle is represented in modern quantum physics by an “interference pattern”, formed by two fields of the same frequency blending together, altering the frequency of both to form a new coherent frequency, and “entanglement” where any two particles (entities) that are “born together” or become entangled (fuse energetically), become “as one” and continue to function as the same nature or frequency even when separated by great distances. This is often hard for us to understand in practical terms because it happens at the subtle level of the subconscious mind that operates automatically without our direct awareness. This is how we form “karmic bonds” with people that last throughout time where we continue incarnating together through a shared energetic (spiritual) nature that cooperatively plays out a joint experience of reality.

The Principles of Sacred Geometry

In Spiritual Sciences this same idea is represented in Sacred Geometry as the Tetrad, where the Monad (sphere of consciousness) blends into and forms union with a regenerated aspect of itself as an energetic marriage of polar opposites. This marriage forms the Dyad as the “womb of the universe”, and together produce a new inner nature as the Triad (subtle body), which then provides the foundation for the outer reality of the Tetrad as its offspring(physical body). This symbolizes the “three in one” principle of all single entities being comprised of complementary opposites who interact to form a third, functional aspect as a new and unique combination of shared qualities. Our inner nature is always mingling with everything around us, fluctuating and changing, yet stable and consistent, forming our perception of reality and all of our actions and deeds.

As we go through life, we’re always exchanging energy and information with others and our environment, experiencing ourselves by way of the exchange in new and varied ways, and transforming our identity by way of the experiences it brings. This is the process we develop our ego through as our identification with the material world. Likewise, this is also the process we use to form our identity in and intentional and purposeful way. All of our life events and our relationship with others provide us with a kind of “moral test” where we’re attracted to and seduced by other people’s nature and actions. As we enter into relationship with them and the activities they naturally engage in and take on the same qualities as a result, and we like how we become and thereby start identifying with being that type of person, we become the same in nature and are ultimately corrupted by it at the soul level. As we transform ourselves to “lower energies”, those born out of desire for pleasure and personal gain of some kind, that strengthens our identification with material things, we can no longer serve as the vehicle for “higher energies”, and we cut ourselves off from our spiritual source as the result. We condemn our soul to the material existence our identity is dependent on for creating ourselves, and that “false identity” dies with the body that birthed and sustained it.

        In all forms of initiation as spiritual growth and awakening a process of self-purification is necessary as the first step, because all higher knowledge can only come “through” a nature that’s of a similar or equivalent nature. One that’s of a similar morality and vibratory frequency in terms of its moral character. We can only “attain” knowledge through our ability to become one with it as an experience of it. Higher, spiritual knowledge only comes through direct experience, not as a theory that’s recited and talked about but never brought into practice. All spiritual knowledge is a practice of some kind that produces and experience of it “as” it. We only learn by living. So a purification process is the prerequisite and foundation necessary for becoming a vehicle for higher knowledge. We purify ourselves through conscious use of the same creative process of what we’re identified with and use as the means of creating our experiences.

We’re always forming an amalgamation with the nature of others as the means of becoming “like them”. The Higher Soul exists in a constant purified state that’s symbolically represented by gold. This is because of the properties gold naturally possesses that allows it to blend with and form a new solid (fixed form) with other metals, that can then be reheated and returned to a liquid state where it separates from the other metals and resumes its natural constitution as “pure gold”. Gold is soft and malleable in its natural state, and only hardens into a rigid and fixed shape when combined with other profane metals. This is the same property the soul possesses in being able to blend with other essences, becoming stabilized and fixed in form as a result, then through active use of the will, separate from the essence it took on and return to its pure unadulterated nature. Gold is also “non-reactive”, and so it never tarnishes or corrodes. In order to maintain the soul in a purified state, we have to neutralize ourselves to the emotional states that govern the material plane and not “react” to them or be altered by them in any way.

Temptation

The true test of “temptation” is when we’re not tempted at all by it because we’re not identified with it and it’s not “in us” as a part of us. We’re only tempted by things and idea we have a desire for, feel a strong connection to, and form a natural reaction to in some way. We’re seduced by the experience it offers that we use in turn to shape ourselves through. When we find something repulsive or disgusting, we’re still using it to shape ourselves through the experience of our reaction to it. Any reaction is a form of corruption because we’re still forming our identity based on the experience the adverse reaction gives us. We shape our identity by contrasting and opposing it, so we’re still identified with it and literally being controlled and determined by the material world. The whole process of spiritual purification and assuming our true identity comes by not being effected by the material world or the nature and behavior of others.

This is forming the recognition of the true nature of things as the spiritual world as the mind and internal nature of things being what “animates and determines” them, and not the other way around. The spiritual world has supremacy over the material world and is what acts to create it and give it life. Once we become identified with our higher nature by “becoming it” in essence, material forms and ideas no longer affect us and don’t cause a reaction of any kind “in us”. We no longer act to “draw in” and become one with them as a joint experience of the same nature, and remain in a neutral state in relationship to them. When purified (mentally, emotionally, and physically) and embodying higher levels of consciousness, we become a vehicle and instrument for higher powers that are neutral and unbiased to the actions and nature of others, where we’re never controlled or determined by them.

The Nature of Compassion

By acquiring a thorough understanding of how this process works through the Law of Vibration and Resonance, we can begin working with it in an intentional manner to self-create while forming compassion for others. We can “blend with” and then “un-blend” with others at will. We can blend with those whose character traits we want to awaken in us, actively express, and become identified with, then dissolve the connection once that has been achieved. We can also learn how to dissolve our bond with those who are of poor character or never form a relationship with them to begin with. By intentionally entering into and becoming one with the nature of another and “experience life as they do”, we can become compassionate and truly see and understand them as they are. Then we can separate ourselves from them and return to our normal state a part from them. When this becomes a conscious process undertaken with full awareness of what we’re doing and why, we don’t become a permanent part of them by beginning to participate in the same reality from the same perspective as a drama of some kind because we relate to them and begin identifying with them. This is what happens when it’s an unconscious process that takes place without our awareness or intention.

True compassion is a demonstration of self-mastery as the conscious application of law. We can only create on any given plane by utilizing the laws governing that plane. We have to enter into the sphere of that plane, becoming of the same nature as it is, and work with the experience it naturally produces while still maintaining full awareness of our self and our intention for doing so and not get lost in the experience of it. It’s easy to get lost in the illusion of the experience because it’s so real it draws us into it through a form of reverie and we lose memory of ourselves as being apart from it and recognition of the truth that’s operating through it. Whenever we get caught up in an experience where we’re truly and intimately involved and participating in it as part of it, we enter into a primarily unconscious state. It requires constant practice and full awareness in order to maintain an awareness of the laws involved that are making the experience possible. Once we can get to the point where we can stay aware of what’s going on through the whole process, we can begin using it as a profound tool for our own spiritual growth and advancement by becoming an instrument for Higher Powers to work in the world through sole identification with our Higher, Universal Self that’s not subject to reality, but is instead the one that’s orchestrating it.

Acquiring Higher Knowledge: Condition, State, and Quality of Consciousness – Drawing Down Energy into our Mental Sphere

We now know that the consciousness associated with the brain that serves to operate it isn’t produced by the physical organ itself, but the brain (all material bodies) merely act as a “receiver” and transducer for consciousness which exists in its potential form in the atmosphere around us, also known as the ether, Astral Plane, Akashic Field, Quantum Plenum, and the Unified Field of intelligence. We actually act to “absorb” thoughts and ideas from the universal mind of the collective unconscious, rather than actually being the one “producing them”, as many believe. We also act to absorb the thought-forms of others in a parallel manner, which also populate the astral plane around us as the instinctual field of the subconscious mind that are of the same nature as we are through a subliminal form of telepathy.

The brain, heart, and body itself only contains and possesses the consciousness it serves as a vehicle for by first absorbing it through various forms of suggestion and intuition that it then develops into a unique version of reality by continuing to think about it while picturing it in the mind’s eye, forming it into an imaginary reality as the basis for a personal creation. What we refer to as the “body’ consciousness” operates out of memory and it’s only creative capacity is by way of using memory as a thematic blueprint or template for creating material forms of the same nature. It lacks originality and individuality and is developed through conditioning as a form of training that establishes the personality as a mental paradigm or mental sphere of consciousness as a vibratory frequency, that it continues creating out of in a natural and repetitive manner.

State of Mind

In order to acquire, absorb, or “call” energetic entities as ideas into our sphere of consciousness, we have to create the conditions in which that consciousness naturally exists. We have to create the conditions as a vibratory state that’s equivalent to it, which is what allows it to be drawn into our mental sphere through resonance and sympathetic induction. If we don’t exist as the same state of mind and level or quality of consciousness, we don’t resonate with it and we can’t become a vehicle or medium for it to manifest within us as our very own thoughts and feelings. This is true not only for the energies as qualities of consciousness (memories) that naturally inhabit the material plane that we experience as emotional states that appeal to us and bring out in us complementary traits and characteristics, but also in regards to higher planes which are predominately archetypal in nature and provide us with distinct patterns for embodying as a way of “becoming” like them.

In the spiritual, invisible, energetic realm of subtle energy, the primary principles that are always operating is the Law of Mentalism, Law of Correspondences, and the Law of Vibration, all of which go hand in hand as extensions of each other and provide the means of manifesting within the material plane through the proper energy and moving energies necessary to manifest as qualities between parallel planes that together form a cohesive and coherent reality. As a soul within a material body, we can only act to acquire or draw in and absorb energy that’s of the same or similar vibration as we are. In order to draw in a select and desired energy as a quality that we don’t already possess in its active state, we have to align ourselves with and create the mental, emotional, and physical conditions that it naturally exists in or that are of the conditions of that dimension, and thereby “resonate with it”.

The energies of the upper and lower planes, commonly referred to as nature spirits, angels, demons, jeni, and so on, which can also be thought of as the Elements and natural forces that have creative potential and are “singular in nature” and perform distinct operations inherent in that quality faithfully without distortion. Humans are composite beings that are multidimensional in nature and possess and actively employ multiple qualities and characteristics of all planes in which it’s a part. We all have the ability to intentionally develop ourselves by choosing what qualities we align ourselves with and actively employ as the means of being able to perform the operations and behaviors that naturally ensue from that quality. Whatever and however we’re “being” as a quality of consciousness or state of mind, determines what we’re doing and how we’re acting. All actions as an expression of consciousness create realities on the material plane.

Archetypes and the Gods of Creation

The energies of a still higher plane, the Akashic field of universal memory, entities exist that are of a complex nature just as we are. These entities are archetypes, which have historically been referred to as the “gods”. An archetype exists as a “whole idea” that involves multiple qualities as a formula or dynamic that has a certain type of personality and character traits, an identity as a specific type of person prone to play a certain type of role and be ideal for acting out a certain type of story as a form of theme. Archetypes from these higher planes form the basis for all human development, and we are not only born into this world as a dynamic formula of multiple archetypes (zodiac birth chart), but we “are” an archetype ourselves. We embody and live out of a dominant archetype as a unique variation formulated by our souls ability to access, select, and draw in (embody) the archetypes of its choice and actively expressing those qualities as the means of creating ourselves by developing those same qualities to various degrees as a natural part of our personality and identity.

The gods of antiquity was a mythology that provided us with a kind of menu as to what was possible and available for practical use based on our nature and desire for “how we want to be”. We all resonate and feel an affinity for certain types of characters and heavily relate to certain types of stories that naturally result from the expression of certain ways of being. The gods of mythology represent archetypes as a way of being that provide us with a model that we can choose with precision and actively employ as a means of intentionally developing ourselves to be of a similar nature. We can only really embody and know how to bring a way of being into expression by imitating what’s being modeled and demonstrated for us. Archetypes are characters that are whole in nature as complex dynamic beings that provide us with a template to practice out of. They possess a certain combination of qualities in varying degrees that make up their character. By stepping into and practicing “being like” an archetype, we activate and bring out those same qualities in ourselves. Naturally by imitating we don’t become just like them, but we create a unique version of the same idea, or incorporate new qualities into our existing character that expand our range of expression.

If we have a desire to be more courageous and less prone to fear, for example, we choose and embody an archetype or god that is the full expression of fearless courage. We can study them, get a feel for their personality, and how they feel, think, and perceive things, what perspective they take, how they hold and conduct themselves, and just through imitating and being like them in body, posture, and behavior, we tap into and access the same consciousness and way of perceiving ourselves. Physiology forms a direct correspondence with state of mind, which corresponds with a distinct way of feeling and thinking. Thought, feeling, emotion, and action or behavior is “always” aligned with each other. So just be employing the same behaviors we adjust our state of mind to match it, creating a new experience of ourselves, and we begin perceiving in new ways. We gain a new sense of ourselves through our behaviors and ways of conducting ourselves that we then become associated and identified with, and through repetitive practice, it becomes a natural way of being. We’re not meant to “worship” the gods of mythology (or religion) as many have been led to believe, but rather use them as tools for self-development.

Becoming One with our Higher Self

In a similar manner we can also connect to our Higher Self, which is what most are actually referring to when they think of God (as a person or entity), which exists on a higher plane and acts to guide and direct us through an internal voice while also orchestrating the events of our life based on karma and what we “ask for” through our thoughts and intention, and is also a constant companion to us. Our Higher Self is also commonly referred to as our Holy Guardian Angel, and is the part of us that remains fully within a higher plane and never manifests (blends with material substance) in the lower plane, and remains unaffected by magnetic forces (emotions) of the lower regions of the Astral Plane. It exists in a natural and unbiased state and doesn’t respond or even necessarily seem to acknowledge our emotional states, passions, and instinctual urges, and guides us instead through pure reasoning and absolute clarity that’s always taking into account the big picture of which we are commonly unaware of.

By forming a connection with our Higher Self, through deep feelings of reverence, trust, and devotion, and committing whole-heartedly and sincerely to our souls development (which is its only concern), and we invite (ask) our Higher Self to come into us and be the consciousness we “look through” as the means of acquiring a more accurate and objective perspective and perception, we act to “pull down” the energy by consciously embodying it. We blend with it and become one in awareness. We can only do this consistently by creating ourselves (body and mind) to be of an equivalent nature to our Higher Self. This means we have to purify ourselves of toxic emotions and the illusions born out of them, and not be subject to emotional states and the emotional projections of others. We have to cleanse ourselves of our emotions, passions for material pleasure, and be able to willfully resist compulsive urges (instinctual behaviors). As long as we exist as the equivalent of the lower, unconscious plane of animal instinct, driven by emotions, reactive behaviors, and passions, we can’t act as the vessel for higher energies, because these things don’t exist on higher planes (only lower planes of an unconscious nature), and so the conditions don’t correspond and aren’t appropriate. The higher mind is willful in nature and isn’t affected or “controlled” by the emotions intended to produce automatic behaviors.

So anytime we’re looking to acquire new qualities and ways of being, we have to recognize the natural conditions as the atmosphere that quality, entity, or archetype naturally exists in, and create the same conditions in our mental sphere through gaining rapport with it. By becoming like it as a state of mind. We have to “become” through an act of awareness, choice, and will, of the same nature. We have to vibrate at a similar rate in order to be able to draw it in or absorb it by resonating with it. Once we absorb it, embody and become one with it, it activates those same qualities within us and we’re able to express through them. Once forces become active within us and we’re able to express ourselves through them by becoming them, we create experiences as them, sense our self through those experiences, associate and identify with our own experiences, absorb them as memory, and through an accumulative process of consistent practice, they become a natural part of us. They become fully integrated into our mental sphere and built into our muscle. We begin employing them automatically as a natural part of our being. Once this is accomplished, we no longer need the entity or archetype, and we can release it back into the sphere from which it came.

       This is an important step many fail to recognize and do intentionally. The only purpose of an entity or quality that performs a certain function in a specific way is to stimulate, awaken, make active, and bring out in us that same quality, characteristic, and behavior or activity. It’s not meant to take up permanent residence within us where it can begin taking on a life of its own as a form of alter-ego. Once the desired result is achieved and obtained as a permanent part of our character, just as we consciously invoked and embody it, we have to thank it sincerely for the service it provided, then instruct it to leave by ushering it out of our body and back into the atmosphere and universe where it can continue to be of service to others.

This rule applies to every aspect except our Higher Self of course, which always exists as a fundamental part of us and our connection with it is eternal and nourishing in nature. It doesn’t offer qualities and archetypal personalities for us to embody and acquire, but rather exists as a neutral state of being that always acts to inform, advise through awareness, and instruct us without ever making decisions for us or imposing its will on us in a way that overrides our own ability to make decisions for ourselves.  All self-creation is our full responsibility and comes by way of what we choose and ask for and what we willfully bring about through our actions.

       The easiest and most basic way to tell the difference between true “guiding forces” of a higher nature (some call spirit guides, angels, teachers, etc.) and those of a lower nature (emotions, passions, urges, impulses, etc.) is that Divine forces NEVER violate choice and free will, tell you what to do, or make decisions for you. They only act to educate, inform through increased awareness, and bring insights and realizations that reveal new choices and possibilities, increasing and expanding your ability to choose. Lower forces can only express by taking control of or commanding your will through emotional states and passions of various sorts that when allowed to take hold, can easily run your thoughts and make decisions for you as impulses, desires, passions, emotional reactions, and physical urges.

All forces, whether celestial or terrestrial, only have the ability to “influence you” and can’t actually make decisions for you. They have no will of their own, which is what’s required in order to step outside of instinct or a singular nature that’s a part of a collective unconscious, and make new decisions that require original thought that produces new behaviors and ways of being. Only humans have this ability within the creative realms. This is our “God given ability to create” that makes us capable of governing all of the natural forces that partake in the material world as a means of being fully responsible for our own creation. We have the ability to utilize these natural forces as the means of creating and creating ourselves by way of our own creations, but we have to not only realize that we do, but also know “how to do it”. Otherwise the creative forces of the material plane use us to create through and we become a product of unconscious instinct that’s determined by our animal nature instead of our higher Divine nature.

Mind-Body Medicine: Developing a more Effective Style of Practicing by Employing Psychological Skills

One of the most common mistakes we make when practicing medicine of any kind, is that we take a system that operates as a whole unit and we separate it into parts, and then proceed to treat only one part as if it’s independent of the system itself. We separate the mind from the body and approach the physical ailment in purely material terms without any awareness of what psychological and emotional effect we’re creating through our attitude and approach. Yet, just as all “behavior” comes as the product of emotions and thoughts, all biological processes and activities are also produced and influenced by the mind that serves to operate the body and give it life. Nowhere is this more readily demonstrated than in what we call the “placebo effect” which has been employed in numerous different ways and clearly demonstrates the power of the mind as beliefs has in producing distinct and specific effects in the body.

Another fundamental error we make in how we approach things tends to come from our own belief-system and paradigm in terms of healing itself, and what our true capabilities are and role is as doctors and practitioners. There’s a distinct difference between the idea of “healing” as opposed to curing, managing symptoms, medicating, repairing and fixing, and removing or replacing parts. True healing is when the body heals itself and is a function of how the mind works to naturally direct and instruct the body to perform and produce natural biological processes. In this sense, all “healing” is a form of “self-healing”, and only the patient can heal themselves. As practitioners however, we can identify and help remove whatever is acting to cause the problem, and employ psychological skills along with medical knowledge to help facilitate a process as an “experience” that will work subliminally with the mind of the patient to help engage them in the mental process necessary for healing themselves. This ability requires a different type of skill and can be “performed” through our normal demeanor and way of talking with someone. As with all things, it’s all about how we enter into relationship with others and act to directly influence them as a result.

In order to create the proper experience necessary to be effective, every aspect of the process a patient undergoes has to be taken into consideration. In this article however, I’m only going to address the actual interaction and experience with the doctor or Practitioner. You have to always keep in mind that the outcome produced in any situation comes as the result of constant impressions the patient is forming as they go along that they use as the means of drawing their conclusions as well as provides them with ideas that are “designed to convince”. A convincer is whatever provides a form of evidence as to the credibility and competency of the doctor that gives and instills the firm impression that we know what we’re doing and can be trusted to help them in whatever way they need help. People are always making constant mental and emotional evaluations as they go along in an experience, and the more congruent and consistent the overall experience is, the more faith is created in the competency of the doctors and the establishment as an organization.

The most fundamental way to work with someone psychologically is by creating the proper relationship as an emotional state that establishes trust, while planting the proper thoughts and suggestions for them to develop by continuing to think about them, which work together to form a belief about what’s going to happen and why. Our beliefs shape our perception and experience of reality, and serve to produce the physical equivalent as an analogy and correspondence of the belief. This is clearly demonstrated in various applications of a placebo of some kind where the mind produces the physical effect of whatever it believes the placebo will produce. This process and effect is greatly enhanced by explaining in detail what effect they can expect from something, which is really providing them with instructions on “what to create”.

What the placebo experiments have also shown is that they’re much more effective when the Practitioner also believes in the placebo, or believes that whatever they’re telling the patient is true and correct. This is because we’re always producing body language and subtleties in our tone of voice and how we’re saying things that the patient picks up on subconsciously and knows we’re not being truthful, lack confidence in what we’re saying, or aren’t sincere somehow. What this means is that you have to first of all realize the power of the mind to direct and heal the body, and develop a true knowledge and practical understanding of psychological principles and how they work in order to skillfully employ them as part of your style and in a convincing manner.

If you honestly feel that you’re doing something wrong in what you’re saying or how you’re being, it’ll show, and you won’t be effective in using it. Just as the placebo requires belief in order to work, so does our performance that’s acting to instill the belief in someone else. We’re always working by way of the same psychological principles in everything that we do and say, whether we’re instilling negative ideas or positive ones. The only difference is whether or not we’re conscious and aware of what we’re doing, or if we’re doing it in an unconscious and haphazard way. Whether we’re simply “giving” our beliefs to another as a form of diagnosis, treatment, and prognosis, or if we’re changing our language and how we say things in order to produce the most positive mind-set possible in effectively dealing with any situation.

Employing psychological skill always comes through the relationship we form and how we communicate or express ourselves and ideas within the context of that relationship, and what outcome we’re trying to intentionally create. Communication isn’t just verbally through the words we’re speaking, but something we do with our whole presence and body. It’s something that comes by way of a performance with our “state of mind” and how we’re being, with our body language and gestures, the tone and quality of our voice, the rate and rhythm of “how” we’re saying something, and the actual words we’re using. The words we use when talking to someone tend to form the basis for the reality as internal representations they form in their mind, which acts to elicit an equivalent emotional response that forms the “meaning” the idea has, which form the basis for how they experience it. The meaning things have and the experience they create are what provide the basis as a form of instructions for the subconscious mind to create as a physical equivalent. If they belief that healing is going to take place as the result of your consultation and guidance, then there’s an excellent and greatly increased possibility that it will.

The first thing we need to decide in any situation is what our intention is, what outcome we have a desire to produce, and what the purpose of our communication is. Then we ask ourselves how do we need to “become” and “how do we need to say” whatever it is we’re going to say in order to influence and lead them to that as a natural conclusion? In the case of setting an intention of helping facilitate a natural process of healing as a belief that healing is possible and going to take place as a result of our interaction with them, then providing them with the proper thoughts, emotions, and instructions, we have to formulate a kind of plan for what would produce the necessary effect. We’re always working in any situation through a relationship of “cause and effect”, or stimulus that produces a like response in everything we think, say, and do. So what relationship do we need to form to produce a natural effect? What’s the best possible way for us to approach a situation in order to produce the most positive, appropriate, and beneficial outcome for the patient?

The basic principles that are involved in giving a person “suggestions” by how we communicate with them, that serve to plant the proper idea in their mind that they will continue to think about and develop long after our encounter, is to first create a relaxed and receptive state as an atmosphere of trust and safety, achieved through rapport as a feeling of infinity by becoming “like them” in personality and demeanor, and talk to them in a way that forms the desired ideas in their mind. By educating and instructing them on what to do and why, while constantly checking to make sure they understand what you mean, and then recap and summarize as a means of concluding, we can greatly increase compliance through a willing cooperation. Always present everything in as positive terms as possible while placing a special emphasis on “what to do” as actions for them to take, instead of only telling them what “not to do”. The subconscious mind doesn’t know how to process a “negative idea”, because it works only by forming a picture in the mind of what you’re saying, and the picture formed “is” the instructions as to what to do or what idea to produce as an experience. If you tell them not to do something, they have to picture what it is they’re not supposed to do, which serves as directive to the subconscious.

Don’t ever “diagnose” or give a condition a name or label unless you have to, because they’ll research it as soon as they leave, find out all about it and produce the symptoms involved even when they didn’t originally have them. They’ll literally manifest the disease through their belief that they have it. A diagnosis is the most prominent way we create a belief in the patient where they begin to systematically produce new symptoms because of it. There have been cases where people were “misdiagnosed” for some reason, who literally went on to produce the disease they were misdiagnosed with. There have been similar cases where patients were misdiagnosed with a terminal illness and told how long they had to live, and died on the very day they were told they would, only to find out afterwards that their diagnosis was a mistake, and they never had the disease until they were “told” they did. It was the diagnosis that “gave them” the disease as a belief in it. These cases are classic examples of the power of belief to manifest the physical conditions of the belief.

The Process for Employing Psychological Skill in Communicating:

Keep in mind that every aspect of the whole process as an “overall experience” is creating an “impression” of some kind that your patient is using as the means of evaluating and assessing the situation to draw a final conclusion as a summation that creates their belief about you, your staff, and your organization. That the outcome produced and the effectiveness of any treatment, procedure, or process is based primarily on the “relationship” formed between patient and doctor. This will not only increase your effectiveness considerably in truly helping people heal, while building your reputation as a doctor, but will also create patient loyalty and referrals. There’s no better way to grow your Practice than through long-term relationships build on successful cases and the Patient referrals that come as a result. As a professional your reputation is everything.

Self-Preparation:

  • Set your intention for a desired outcome firmly in your mind as the basis for the rest of the process which will come as a synchronized series of correspondences.
  • Realize the “state of mind” or mood you need to embody as the nature and quality of your “energy”, and intentionally form it. The number one way we influence anyone is through our “presence” and they “feel” being around us. The minute you walk into the room you create a “first impression” that’s sets the pace for the rest of the experience.
  • Develop professional etiquette that has a personalized quality to it. Demonstrate manners, be courteous and kind, and always convey a sense of sincerity and true concern, while also being professional in your demeanor and general behavior.
  • Always dress in a professional yet casual manner that conveys professionalism, intelligence, a sense of authority, well-groomed in every way, and where your patients are able to easily establish you from the rest of your staff. First impressions are nearly always formed on appearance and presence alone before you even open your mouth to speak.

Creating the Proper State as the Basis for the Experience:

  • The most direct means you have of influencing the patients “state” is through your own presence. The minute you walk into the room they’re “reading” your energy as a form of anticipation of what’s to come.
  • By helping them to relax and feel comfortable with us we create a feeling of trust and safety, which is necessary in order for them to be receptive to us. By being cordial and friendly we make a personal connection with them that sets the foundation for the rest of the interaction.

Establishing Rapport:

  • The most natural form of “trance induction” there is that we engage in routinely without being aware of it comes through establishing “rapport” with someone. Rapport is also a form of what we call “charisma”, which is a magnetic type of energy that naturally engages people and causes them to feel attracted to us.
  • Rapport is established by mirroring or “becoming like” the other person in nature. Synchronizing with them as a form of entrainment, where we take on the same type of body posture, demeanor, language, and basic personality. We don’t need to do this in an exact way, but more in a general way where we seem familiar to them and they can easily relate to us, which helps them “like us” and feel relaxed and comfortable in dealing with us. Again, familiarity breeds comfort and trust. We like and trust people who are like us.

Formulating Suggestions as Education and Instructions:

  • You want to gear all communication to “normal language” and use layman terms. Avoid using medical terminology that only you understand. Use analogies and metaphors to explain ideas, compare ideas to everyday ideas that are of a similar nature, and use visuals or models of some kind if necessary or appropriate. Patients can only participate in a cooperative manner if they understand, if they feel confused they won’t know what to do or what it means exactly, and so they won’t be able to fully cooperate.
  • Anytime that you’re having them change something, or stop doing something, discuss and establish with them what to replace it with or what to do instead. We don’t ever really break habits, but rather we transform them into new habits that produce new results that are more beneficial in nature.
  • Explain to them what the thing you want them to stop is doing to harm them, and how they’ll benefit by doing whatever it is you’re recommending with relative detail. This helps them to imagine and think about things in a way that make the change easy. As we “explain things” we are literally teaching them how to think about them in the proper way in terms of the benefits and results it’ll produce, and giving them a form of “instructions” on what to create through the belief it forms in their mind. Placebos are always much more effective when we tell people what they’ll produce. The subconscious mind doesn’t have the ability to discriminate or make decisions, so it has to be given instructions on what to do and how to do it in order to create it as a natural outcome.
  • Formulate a plan for transformation from the current state to the desired state through what the patient is willing to do and can do within their current lifestyle and situation. Always customize plans to the unique needs and preferences of the patient to reduce resistance, ensure compliance and elicit full participation.

Check for Understanding:

  • Frequently ask if they have any questions.
  • Have them recap the plan of action and what you decided together to ensure that they understand it as a step-by-step plan and remember what was said.

Summarize and Conclude:

  • Briefly explain what you “expect to see” on their next visit in terms of progress based on the agreed changes and faithful implementation of the plan you formed together. This reestablishes the results it will produce and puts it within a time-frame. Expectation is a form of belief as to what will occur and become established through the process implied.
  • If appropriate, briefly describe what the “healing process will look like” in terms of time-frames and the stages involved in healing.
  • Thank them and conclude in a friendly and personable way that’s sincere.

Follow-up Visits:

  • You want to begin any follow-up or continuing visits for the same problem by briefly going over what you had agreed to last time and ask them “how did it go?” Hear what they have to say about the progress made and if they encountered any problems and have any questions. Discuss and answer all of these before performing the new exam.

It can also be very beneficial to simply learn how to change our language regarding things. I’ve heard doctors often make comments like “there is no cure” for this problem or disease, which sets the belief in the patient that there’s no hope or nothing they can do, and of course isn’t an entirely accurate statement no matter what it’s in reference to. We could just as easily reframe that by saying “we haven’t found a cure for this yet, but we’re working on it and making new discoveries everyday”, which is not only a more accurate statement, but gives the patient a sense of hope that a cure does exist and may be discovered at any time. Hope is a very important key to ensure active and enthusiastic participation. You can also follow that up by saying, “but here’s what we do know about it that helps . . . . “, or “here are some things you can do that will help  . . . “, then explain what those things are and describe in what way they will help or what they’ll help with (pain, slow the progress, remedy a symptom, etc.).

By learning psychological principles and how to utilize them through our style of performance and communication, we can develop effective ways to work the patient’s own mind to help them heal themselves naturally. We can provide them with the means for producing necessary lifestyle changes. We can learn how to work with the “whole person” instead of fragmented parts of them. Many illnesses and diseases have healed mysteriously in a spontaneous manner, and many cancers go into spontaneous remission for no apparent reason. Most illnesses, disease, and cancers are psychosomatic in nature and have an emotional, psychological, and spiritual component to them which is actually “causal” in nature. Many physical ailments are due to lifestyle issues and habitual behaviors of some kind that are ultimately emotionally and psychologically driven. By working with the whole person instead of just the physical aspect we can help set the premise for changing habits and transforming areas of their life that are producing health problems of various sorts. We don’t need to be both a Physician and Psychologist in order to do this, we simply have to have a good understanding of the psychological principles involved and how to apply them in a practical way to our enhance our personal style for practicing medicine.

Self-Awareness and how we Become Who we are – Realizing the Nature of Relationships and Exercising the Power of Choice to Self-Create

We’re all in the process of “becoming” in life through a constant interaction as an outer stimulus that causes an inner response of a like nature. From the time were born, we’re subject to a constant form of outer stimulation from others, our environment, and the conditions of our life circumstances that begin shaping us as a person. An outer stimulation awakens in us the same type of qualities that we’re being stimulated with, bringing them out in us where we form an interaction based on the shared qualities. As we embody the same type of qualities as the person we’re interacting with, we establish a relationship with them that expresses the shared qualities as a dynamic and we create an “experience” of ourselves by way of that dynamic. As we create an experience of something through our relationship with it, we simultaneously “sense ourselves” within that experience as a certain kind of person playing a certain type of role, and we become identified with our experiences as a result.

Through this natural and fundamental process of cause and effect, we are initially developed through an unconscious state of our formative conditioning to be like the people we live in relationship with and the dynamics we play an active part in. We are all subject to the family dynamics we play a role in as the initial means of developing our personality and identity. By the time we’re in our mid to late 20’s, our personality and identity are firmly established and we begin the process of simply living out of and repeating the same patterns, behavioral dynamics, and type of relationships through a natural unconscious state the rest of our lives. This is what’s often referred to as the “first birth”, which sets the basis for transformation as being “reborn” through our “second birth” which is undertaken with full awareness of what’s happening and why.

It’s by becoming aware of the natural process of self-development that we can begin working with it consciously to create ourselves in a deliberate and intentional way. We’re all born into this world with a Higher Conscious, subconscious and self-conscious mind and the capacity to become self-determined by exercising our ability to self-realize, discriminate, reason, and choose how we’re going to respond, and then willfully act out that decision while resisting habitual tendencies that come naturally to us as automatic responses. This powerful ability to self-create starts with awareness of the laws operating in an situation as the means of creating, becoming aware of what’s happening inside of you at any given moment based on how you’re being stimulated, and the type of person you become through your immediate and natural reactions as a result. All of life results from a dynamic series of relationships and how they all work together in a synchronistic and accumulative fashion to create a stable and consistent idea.

       The most fundamental laws that are always operating between the inner and outer world, between the masculine and feminine energies, and between us and others, are the Law of Cause and Effect and the Law of Vibration. The Law of Cause and Effect demonstrates that all actions produce and equal or greater reaction of the same nature. This is very easy to realize through self-observation by noticing that whatever emotion is being outwardly expressed by another acts to stimulate you with that same emotion. It serves to alter your “state” to match theirs and brings out in you the same emotional qualities where you become the “same as” or “just like” the person stimulating you. You then form an immediate reaction by either becoming congruent with them or by taking on the complementary aspect of the same idea and opposing them.

Anger for example, when being actively projected towards you will cause you to either become just as angry and aggressive or more, or it’ll cause you to feel scared, and back down or feel overwhelmed. If you become just as angry, it escalates and intensifies, if you back down and become subordinate, it diffuses and neutralizes it. Whatever your reaction you become “that type of person” through the experience of yourself it creates. Whatever the nature of the energy being openly expressed by another within near proximity of you, acts to enter into and transform you to that same state. Likewise, if we’re the one who is actively expressing an emotion we serve to transform everyone around us who’s in a different state to that same emotion. The active component in one always acts to awaken and seed its passive, latent component in another bringing it into an active state.

The Law of Vibration works in precisely the same way through sympathetic resonance, where one vibration as an emotional mental state, vibrates that same state in another through sympathetic induction where it’s literally projected outward by one person towards another person as a form of energetic transmission, where it literally enters into their body, vibrating that same state in them, amplifying and multiplying it, where they then form coherence and begin vibrating in harmony with each other as a “shared state”. Once the shared state is achieved they co-create a congruent experience together as a joint reality. The Law of Vibration always works through the complementary Law of Correspondences and Analogies where “like always begets more of what’s like itself” as a form of propagation.

       In this very sense of what operates as an energetic interaction, we are constantly being influenced by everyone around us to be like them. To take on the same emotional state, attitude, type of thoughts, and behaviors as they openly demonstrate and outwardly express through their very being. We also act on others in exactly the same way to influence them to be more like us. Vibration as a certain type and kind of energy always acts to generate more of what’s of the same nature as it is, just as we’re only capable of creating as an expression of our mental state as a form of offspring. All of life and our self is the result of how we enter into relationship with everyone and everything else. In every moment we’re being stimulated somehow, and either unconsciously reacting or consciously deciding who and how we’re going to become in relationship with it. This takes place unconsciously or without our direct awareness of what’s happening as a natural reaction, or consciously through self-awareness as a clear and calculated decision that’s not based on how we’re being stimulated, but rather on our ability to resist it, not let it enter into us and affect us, and from an independent response based on who we decide to be instead.

The first step of transformation becomes the awareness of what’s actually happening, and the second step as the ability to prevent the emotional stimulus from entering into our being and body, and neutralizing it instead. We can keep other people’s emotions and projections from affecting us through the simple awareness of them and by resisting the tendency to react in a like manner. By controlling our own reaction, we counteract, neutralize, and deflect their energy. We bring it into a balanced state rather than an unbalanced state by serving to amplify and increase it.  Once we acquire the ability to prevent other people’s energy from entering into and affecting us, we exist in a form of inner calm where we realize that we actually have a choice as to how we’re going to respond or if we’re going to respond. In some cases we may choose to simply withdraw all of our life-giving energy that only acts to empower it and simply ignore it. Whatever we react to we give life in us and through us, and whatever we ignore and withdraw our attention from, dies to us. We don’t let it become a part of us and determine us as a result.

In this spacious moment of inner calm produced by deflection and no reaction, we can ask ourselves . . . who do I want to be right now? What kind of person do I choose to be in relationship to this person or event? Am I going to allow this person to control me and determine who I am as a result? Do I like how this person is being and do I want to become like them? We can self-reflect in the moment and make a conscious decision as to how we’re going to respond in a thoughtful and intentional manner. And through our controlled and deliberate response based on a calculated decision, we can become self-determined and the master of our own fate.

       Whenever we maintain a calm and undisturbed state in the presence of active emotional expression, we act to neutralize it, and ultimately calm them down by influencing them to match our state. In every interaction as a transmission and reception of energy there’s always a dominant (active and projective) and subordinate (passive and receptive) aspect. Anytime we allow another person’s energy to enter into us and produce an effect, we are the passive receptor in the equation. One person is always the one producing an equal effect in the other, especially when both people are unconscious as to what’s really going on and acting “naturally” by reacting in a like manner to whatever they’re being stimulated with. Whenever we act to “give somebody back their own medicine” or what “they deserve”, we’re actually allowing them to control us and we have to become “just like them” in order to do it. This means that they act “on us” to transform us to be the same type of person as they are.

Whoever is fully conscious and self-aware in the situation and not actively taking on the other persons energy, exercises the ability to dominate and manage the state of the other by bringing their emotions into a neutral state and then intentionally employing emotions as the means of expressing that influences them to match your emotions. The most fundamental form of self-mastery and conscious creation comes by neutralizing yourself to other people’s emotions and attitudes while simultaneously learning how to employ and direct them to create your experiences, or joint experiences, in a deliberate way by skillfully managing the state of others and eliciting a state of cooperation and participation. The only true power in the ultimate sense is being able to control and utilize your own will and the will of others to participate in creating the same type of reality.

This same creative process as the operation of fundamental laws is also how we create ourselves in an intentional manner by associating with people who openly display the qualities and attitudes we want to acquire and develop in ourselves. By only being willing to enter into and maintain relationships with those we admire, respect, adore, honor, and revere, then allowing them to naturally influence us by bringing out those same qualities in us in a natural and unguarded way.  We work by way of natural laws by consciously choosing relationships with others who serve to stimulate positive emotions that bring out the best in us and the parts of ourselves we want to actively develop. Allow yourself to always notice what “part of yourself” shows up in your different relationships and “who you become” in that relationship as a result. Then simply ask yourself . . . “do I like who I become”? Is this how a want to be? Cultivate and nurture only those relationships that bring out the best in you, where you really like who you are because of them.

The Subconscious Mind as the Vehicle for the Soul and the Secret to the Manifestation of Cosmic Will

The aspect of the mind known as the subconscious mind is also what we can think of as our “body consciousness” and is symbolized in Esoteric Sciences by the Moon which acts as a “ship of the sky” that serves as the means for transportation and communication. The subconscious mind is of the astral plane and is “magnetic” in nature, which means it acts as a passive receiver for electric, willful transmission of information as archetypes; just as the moon has no light of its own, and merely acts to reflect the light of the sun, becoming a source of light in the dark. Light itself is clear and dark until it’s absorbed and reflects off of dust particles or matter of some form, which produces the illumination that we call light where we can see material forms based on their ability to simultaneously absorb and act as a mirror for light (forming holograms). The subconscious acts in much the same way and doesn’t generate or produce visual images and thoughts of its own, but merely acts to absorb and reflect them in the faculty of the imagination as a form of memory or as an idea that comes to it in complete form as a “field of information” with a ready-made pattern and set of instructions for producing a similar pattern as both an inner and outer reality of the same nature.

The subconscious mind is a dual aspect of the higher, human soul and is what forms the personality out of memories that are carried from one incarnation to another. Because it’s passive and receptive in nature, and takes in consciousness and information from everything around it without the ability to judge or discriminate (it doesn’t select or choose), it assimilates and is modified by whatever it comes into contact and communication with as an exchange of information being transmitted between two things. The subconscious is considered the feminine principle and “uniting intelligence” that’s connected to all other subconscious minds and personalities throughout the natural world, regardless of distance, as a natural form of telepathy we think of as “instinct”. It’s the agency of telepathy that exists not only between all living beings of the material plane, but also between higher and lower planes as “intuition”. It acts as a blind receiver of the masculine aspect of “will” as thought and ideas which are reflected in the imagination of the subconscious which acts like a womb that grows and develops the idea into a possible reality by how it applies and adapts it to the immediate environment and incorporates it into a field of information as memory, allowing it to connect to that same idea in everything else, forming a perception of it, and automatically producing the behaviors and activities that produce it in material form as an experience.

The subconscious carries the self-conscious mind within it in its potential state as a form of gestation, and births the self-conscious aspect of the same mind at puberty, symbolized esoterically by the Madonna (Mother) and Male child, which is the stage of development when we first begin to be able to think for ourselves and make our own decisions about what to do and who we become. Birth of the self-conscious mind marks the stage where we consciously begin creating ourselves as an individual. This is the aspect of the mind associated with “brain consciousness and thinking as internal dialogue”, that’s born exclusively within the body and forms our ego as the full identification with or as our body. This is the aspect of the mind that discriminates and makes decisions and gives us the ability to take over our own creation by using our thoughts to direct and inform our subconscious mind. All thoughts act as a form of suggestion that seed the subconscious with ideas for turning into experiences through our outer reality. The self-conscious mind is primarily based on outer awareness of the material world and forms our identity by how it senses itself in relationship with it. It first acts to give the inner, subconscious mind the suggestion for what to create outwardly, then witnesses its own creation in the outer world and fashions itself by identifying with the experience it brings.

        The subconscious is under the control of the self-conscious will as directed thought (of self or others) and is obedient and subject to being directed and commanded by the active, masculine aspect of the mind. The subconscious is the aspect of the mind we share with the animal kingdom and all of Nature, and is the agency through which we are both controlled and led in an obedient and mindless way by others, and are able to control and direct ourselves as the primary form of self-creation. The subconscious is subordinate to the Higher-Self and self-conscious and directly controlled and in-formed by suggestions that originate as the mental activities of both the Higher-Self the self-conscious aspects of the mind. It will take in the suggestions from any source outside the self as well and manifest the reality inherent in those suggestions. It acts as the receptive and regenerative aspect of the Life Power. The self-conscious mind, which also has the ability to analyze, evaluate, and discriminate, serves as the “gate keeper” to the subconscious and can actively decide what to let in and take hold, and what to reject and keep out as the means of “protecting” itself and only allowing or intentionally providing what it wants to become a part of its reality.

The subconscious as the feminine principle is the “root substance” as the invisible matrix and substratum beneath all objective planes of existence that acts to organize and compose and animate all material reality. It’s the connective medium between us and everything else. It’s the medium of instinct and intuition that operates within the Astral Plane of the Elements as a unified field of coherent information, and is also the means by which the Higher Mind controls the Elements as the means of creating, orchestrating, and animating material reality. Just as the subconscious is the telepathic and regenerative medium for the self-conscious will and the will of others, it’s also the medium through which the Higher-Will communicates and provides direction and instruction as a form of what we call “guidance” as well as objectively administering karma (past memory formed out of our deeds) as universal justice, providing us with the experiences on the receiving end of past deeds allowing us to realize and make new choices, and rectify and correct them by responding in a new way.

Communication comes to us from our Higher-Self or Soul through intuition, sudden insights, as thoughts reflected in our imagination, day dreams, and night time dreams, because the active will needs a passive receiver to “conceive of ideas” and move them from a purely latent potential state to and active state. These ideas, once conceived by the subconscious are reflected in our mind’s eye, allowing the self-conscious to witness them and they become a natural part of our outer experience through a form of synchronicity and free flowing chain of association that’s reorganized intuitively. Ideas of a higher nature come as archetypes which are universal and metaphorical in nature, and simply provide a symbolic prototype as a form of thematic template for producing as a personal creation. Once conceived by the subconscious and reflected in the mind for the self-conscious to see as a mental impression or internal voice, it evaluates it and decides whether it wants to use it to create. If the self-conscious likes it, it chooses to continue thinking about it, and as it thinks about it, it adapts and customizes it into a new variation that can be easily created as part of its outer reality. Once developed into a new variation by concentrating on it and defining it, it becomes a form of virtual memory as a seed or pattern for reproducing by the subconscious mind.

       Though the subconscious mind is the creative mind of the material plane, it only creates based on memory, which it simply repeats as a metaphor or theme and duplicates, transcribes, and copies in a repetitive fashion over and over until it’s given a new memory as a pattern for creating. It creates reality as an experience out of whatever suggestion it’s given by first imagining it, then connecting to the elements of the same nature all around it, producing the means for experiencing it. It creates lies and illusions in exactly the same fashion as it creates truth because it doesn’t know the difference. It relies on the self-conscious mind to filter the suggestions through reasoning, discrimination, and discernment. It doesn’t have the ability to perceive errors or formulate the necessary action to correct itself of errors in perceiving (sin). It simply takes in the mistaken results of faulty, superficial self-conscious observations and repeats and elaborates on them. While it lacks the ability to critically analyze suggestion, it’s also the channel for telepathic communication and acts to receive and metabolize suggestions from any active source when left unguarded by its own self-conscious aspect.

The subconscious mind only creates reality out of memory and forms habitual patterns and tendencies that are rooted in resistance to change and inertia, and only acts to maintain the status quo and repeat the same ideas of the past in the present. It operates out of the tendencies established in our formative conditioning, and simply repeats the same type of experiences over and over in different situations and circumstances. It operates naturally to resist the suggestions of change given to it by the self-conscious mind as its opposing, yet complementary opposite. It operates to create through the association of ideas and memories of a similar nature. If the suggestion given is in to sharp a contrast with its ecology of interwoven memories, it doesn’t know how to adapt it properly and can’t intuitively connect to it in everything else. For this reason, suggestion needs to be given as a gradual process undertaken in stages as a form of intuitive growth and development. Each aspect of the same mind is of itself non-functional in terms of creating, and they only become functional when operating in a unified manner as a whole.

The subconscious and self-conscious minds tend to speak different languages, which makes communication between them even more difficult. While the self-conscious mind is non-emotional, logical, time-oriented, and abstract in nature, the subconscious is emotional, intuitive, metaphorical, always present, and experiential in nature. In order for the self-conscious to give a proper, easily translated suggestion to the subconscious, it must be delivered in much the same way as a memory is formed as a sensory experience that’s emotional in nature and forms meaning as the basis for the reality created from it. Whatever we want the subconscious to produce, we have to imagine it as if we’re experiencing it, endow it with sensory intensity in terms of defining it through what we’re seeing, hearing, feeling, tasting, smelling, and what we’re telling ourselves about it that gives it meaning and forms the basis for the story we tell ourselves as the means of “experiencing it”. By making it intense in sensory terms we form a strong emotional response to it, and the emotions associated and related to it become what drives all our automatic behaviors and serves to produce it.

       The subconscious is intuitive which means it sees any idea as a metaphor or analogy that’s a form of theme or generalized idea, much like an archetype, and connects to whatever is of a similar nature in everything around it and produces a similar type of experience using whatever elements are available to it in the immediate environment. So the experience created won’t be exactly as we imagined it, but it’ll hold true to the same type of idea as a form of theme. This is why we often don’t recognize our own creations, is because they’re formed as analogies and correspondences to the ideas we formed in a specific way by how we imagined them. So all suggestion, in order to be effective needs to be created and planted in the subconscious as a form of virtual memory of an actual (imagined) experience. We recognize the fruition of our suggestion intuitively as a similar type of experience that holds true to the same type of idea as a kind of theme, though the elements used to orchestrate it may be of a very different nature than we imagined.

The subconscious also houses all memory of the soul that is latent and undeveloped powers in their virgin state that haven’t been stimulated into activity. Only a portion of our soul’s memory is activated and brought into expression as our development through our initial conditioning, while the larger portion of it usually remains dormant and underutilized. In this sense the subconscious is only “potentially reproductive” and has to be given a seed of an idea as a pattern or dynamic, which serves to activate the latent powers of our inner nature that are of a similar nature in response to it. This works in much the same way the male provides the seed as one strand of DNA or group of information as potential qualities and characteristics and the female then matches it with another strand as a form of natural selection of complimentary qualities that together form a new whole of a unique, yet similar nature. The outer acts to stimulate the complementary aspects inwardly, bringing them out in an active state where they’re developed through expression as an interactive dynamic of some sort.

Memory is produced as accumulated experience through the dynamic marriage of the subconscious and self-conscious mind as “that which was, that which is, and that which will be” as a continuation or evolutionary flow produced by whatever we couple and combine with. This interaction between the masculine and feminine, between the self-conscious and subconscious produces a “stream of consciousness” as automatic internal dialogue and habitual thoughts replaying memories over and over. While the self-conscious has the ability to seed and impregnate the subconscious with new ideas for creating, what usually ends up happening is the subconscious drives thoughts in a repetitive manner by replaying memories over and over in our mind in a habitual manner.

       It’s easy to realize through self-observation of our own thoughts that we tend to think the same type of thoughts over and over, and what we’re thinking about today is the same things we thought about yesterday, last week, and last month. Through memory that’s replayed repeatedly through internal dialogue, we’re actually using the creative power of our self-conscious mind to program and direct our subconscious mind with the same ideas of the past as memories and simply create more and more of the same type of experiences, usually without ever realizing that’s what we’re doing and why. In order to embrace and begin utilizing our true ability to create, we have to learn how to still our constant random thoughts and prevent the emotional states they create and keep us locked into, and learn how to be fully present instead and think in terms of what we do want to create, and begin artistically designing the suggestions as imagined experiences that will provide new direction for our subconscious to begin creating.

In the symbolic idea of the “Book of Life”, which is the Astral or Akashic Field of the imagination, all experiences as deeds and actions, whether actually performed or just thought about intensely are “recorded” or impressed upon the soul and subconscious as its constitution, which is comprised of memory. The subconscious incarnates into a material body with the soul memory of all past events, of the race, the planet, and of humanity, all of which share the same subconscious mind, much like smaller fields that are nested within and interwoven with greater fields. The cosmic subconscious record of the entire planet are contained in what we call the “collective unconscious” of Nature and humanity, and acts as a natural form of instinct and intuition as interwoven memories that are an integral part of the same overall reality as a larger ongoing story and interactive dynamic.

The soul uses universal memory as archetypes for self-expression that provides the means for producing personal memory that becomes a permanent part of our soul’s psychological make-up. We create memory as the personal expression of universal archetypes that shapes us as an archetype ourselves. As humans with creative ability, we use various combinations of qualities and characteristics to shape ourselves as a unique, composite nature. The gods create man “in their image and with their likeness” as archetypal forces and powers that we “draw into ourselves” and use as the means of self-creating by becoming “like them” in personality, identity, and behaviors. We acquire the same qualities and characteristics of whatever we “become one with” in mind and body. All of humanity draws off of the same field of archetypal powers as the means of self-creating. So in this sense we’re all of the same universal mind and nature, just in different combinations and potencies.

       The subconscious works through intuition as a dynamic system of correspondences and is how things are connected and interrelated as a higher-form of instinct that’s always in-tune to the inner nature of things and how they relate to the outer nature of the whole. We perceive things intuitively through their natural connection and relationship to each other and as a congruent part of a larger reality or dynamic pattern. Intuitively we can perceive and recognize the same principle or idea playing out through various material forms and ecological systems as unique expressions and variations of the same nature and idea. The instinctual-intuitive mind exists as an inherent part of its environment, and is always present within that environment, unlike the self-conscious mind which exists “in time” and is usually thinking about the past or future and hardly ever present in the moment.

The two minds work together to create reality as both an inner and outer experience as a flow of concentration that’s immediate and “becomes one” with whatever idea it’s concentrating on and forming an internal representation of. Any idea that we concentrate on for an extended period of time literally becomes a part of us as a natural “thought process” or conceptual reality. As we “take in” and absorb an idea, allowing it to take hold and form into a detailed reality by thinking about it, is integrated into our mental paradigm and becomes a part of our perceptual lens and filtering system that we look through as a means of seeing the same idea as an inherent part of our outer environment. Once we form it into an internal representation of a possible reality, making it real and therefore believable, it acts just like an actual life event and memory and becomes a part of us and our ability to perceive and experience that same idea as it’s playing out all around us.

The inner and the outer, the feminine and the masculine, are dynamic aspects of the same thing, and one can’t be fully understood without the other. They act together to produce a “functioning third” aspect as their offspring. Just as the right and left hemispheres of the brain form a corresponding operation to produce a cohesive reality with contrasting aspects. The masculine is the concrete and analytical aspect, and the feminine the fluid and experiential aspect that together produce a corresponding inner and outer reality that’s used to create the memory that becomes a part of the soul’s constitution as a fundamental form of self-creation.

       What we refer to as a “genius”, use this method of single minded focus as entering into the “flow of consciousness” as deep states of concentration on an idea that allows access to the whole idea as a greater reality or corresponding idea, where intuitive insights spontaneously form. By tuning into an idea, we calibrate our mental field to the vibration of the idea as a kind of metaphor that begins resonating with that same idea as a vibration in everything else, forming sympathy with it. Through resonance, we “enter into” and become a part of that idea as a greater whole and can perceive its inner nature which appears to unfold within us, just as a memory does, revealing itself to us in its fullness. Through this process as entering into a stream of consciousness as a kind of magnetic current, we acquire knowledge intuitively as coming from an inner source as a passive vision that we simply “observe” with the self-aware mind by witnessing it. Whatever idea we “become one with” in mind and spirit, we synthesize and metabolize as a permanent part of our normal thought-processes.

The same laws of the human mind and soul are also operating in a complementary fashion on higher levels of which we’re an emanation, projection, or offspring of. Just as memory exists fluently on the material plane of instinct, it exists on the cosmic planes as archetypes, and we access both through the same method of intuition that concentrates by directing our full attention into an idea and in doing so accesses all information associated with it. We act as the vehicle for life as organized form and are able, by knowing how to use our mind to create, to evolve to higher states of organized form as a more complex and dynamic form of consciousness.

We impose limitation on an idea by confining it to a physical form located in time and space, because it’s necessary in order to self-express and create ourselves by way of being the vehicle for that idea. While involvement in a form is only temporarily binding and restricting for the Life-Force Power, being permanently incarcerated in form is extinction of the human soul and spirit. We’re always both growing and evolving ourselves to higher forms of consciousness by using our divine nature (higher mind) to self-create in an intentional manner, or degrading and devolving ourselves by creating out of the memories of our subconscious, emotional and animal-like nature.

Form disciplines force with a merciless severity (represented by the sphere of Mercy and Severity on the Tree of Life) by binding a free-moving force into a fixed idea, which represents death to the force. Incarnation of the soul and spirit into a body sets death into motion as the inevitable conclusion. Life in the body is death to the soul that gives it life, and death of the body is the birth of the soul that returns it to its natural state of liberation. The Higher-Soul acts within the etheric body of the lower soul to self-create through a constant state of evolving and “becoming” through self-perpetuated changes. The “self” shouldn’t be translated as “I am”, but rather as “I am becoming”, because it’s in a constant state of change as a continuous growth process through a basic state of self-expression. The soul becomes organized in form then constantly undergoes the process or re-organizing itself into new patterns by absorbing and taking on archetypal ideas that develop it by acquiring new qualities and characteristics. The soul and body are always transforming through constant life and death processes of regeneration. This process is carried out simultaneously on multiple planes and scales of existence.

The Threefold Nature of our Mind, the Art of Self-Perfection, and the True Nature of Choice, Imagination, and Higher Will

One of the problems we have in realizing the true nature of not only ourselves, but of reality in general, is that we have a hard time not thinking in separative, dualistic terms, while trying to comprehend a reality that’s the unification of multiple dimensions into a cohesive whole. We fail to recognize the relationship that exists between higher and lower planes, between spirit and matter, and between ourselves as we exist simultaneously on various levels of consciousness. We imagine that spirit exists separate and apart from matter, that our Higher Self is a being separate and different from us, that our own subconscious and conscious mind exists and operate independently of each other, and that our outer reality is objective in nature and has nothing to do with our inner reality and how we form an experience of the outer world. We’ve been trained to a mindset that sees all of life which exists as a unified whole as being comprised instead of a bunch of separate parts that have no direct relationship to each other and as being able to function independent of everything else, when in fact it’s actually an intimate and cohesive part of everything else.

The confusion arises from the fact that we exist in a primarily “dual state” as a form of paradox while in the material realm. This dual state as the perception of separation that creates the appearance of our self and others, as if “we’re in here” and they’re “out there”, apart from us, is necessary in order to have an experience of ourselves as someone or something specific. We can only “experience ourselves” as we exist in relationship with everything else. Our very perception is formed by “seeing ourselves in everything else”. This is because we actually exist as being “universal in nature”, comprised of a unique combination of archetypal attributes and qualities that make up our “self” as memories formed out of self-created experiences of ourselves, which are the very foundation for the psychological make-up of humanity as a whole, and that of the Natural world which is also governed by a form of archetypal memory as the “instinctual field” of the “collective Unconscious”.

What we refer to as the invisible realm of spirit that underlies, permeates, and animates the material world giving it Life, is the realm of archetypal ideas and principles that serve to give rise to all material form. Archetypes exist as a form of generalized, universal idea as attributes, qualities, and personality traits that are used at the personal level to self-create by embodying them and becoming one with the idea they represent and acquiring those same traits as a result. Universal memory as archetypes are very similar to personal memory as whole realities or experiences that are complete with qualities, characteristics, personality traits, emotions, thoughts, meaning, roles and identity, and behavioral dynamics that naturally lend themselves to telling certain types of stories. They are the complete ingredients necessary not only for creating a personal inner reality, but also an analogous experience of the same type of outer reality. How we experience something is what forms the basis for creating a memory out of it as a union between the inner imagined reality, and the outer equivalent, that together allow us to experience the inward born idea outside of ourselves as an inherent part of our environment and we get a “sense of ourselves” within and as an intimate part of that idea, and it forms into a personal memory that serves to shape us. We’re always using universal memory to create our experience of reality, and create ourselves by way of those experiences.

       Because all of life is a coherent part of the same universal memory as the collective unconscious, whatever archetypal memory we resonate with we act to draw into our mind and imagination, and “become one with it in mind and spirit”, tuning ourselves to it by taking on the same qualities and personality traits, and we simultaneously connect with those same qualities and ideas in everything around us. As we change our inner constitution, our outer experience of ourselves changes accordingly. As we incorporate and integrate ideas into our mental paradigm, we form a natural relationship with that same idea in everything outside of us. Once an idea and way of being becomes a natural part of our inner being it also becomes a natural part of our outer world as our unified experience of our self. The inner and outer worlds exist as complementary opposites of each other, which means that if you change one, the other one changes automatically to match it. We’re always connecting to and forming a relationship with ourselves as our inner nature in everything around us and creating an experience through the unification of the inner and outer that becomes an inherent part of us as our soul’s memory. We’re always borrowing from the universal as a means of creating our self as an individual.

All creation comes by way of what’s called the primary “3 in 1” Law of the Trinity. Every single entity is comprised of two complementary opposites that work together to produce a third entity as a functional, unified whole. The material mind also exists as complementary aspects of the subconscious (inner self) and self-conscious (outer awareness of self), which work together to produce an offspring as a unified reality that’s a fundamental part of both. Each aspect of a whole acts to emanate and give rise to the other. While we tend to think of the self-conscious mind as being of a different nature and function as the subconscious mind, it’s actually a complementary aspect of the subconscious which is what gave birth to it. The true conscious mind, which is that aspect of us that we commonly call our Higher Self, is the unification of both the subconscious and self-conscious in an exalted state as a single entity on a higher plane, and is actually the aspect of the mind that operates as “Will” within the lower mind.

The self, like the mind and soul, is threefold in nature and exists simultaneously as three aspects on three parallel planes that function together to produce a unified whole as a cohesive reality. Within each plane, the single aspect of the self within that plane exists in a dual state of polarity as complementary opposites of itself, forming a triad. The Higher Self is what we call the human soul of the middle plane that acts as a medium between the Oversoul and the lower soul, and when manifesting in the lower plane of material existence, also separates into dual and complementary aspects of itself, and emanates the subconscious mind which acts to form and give life to the material body as it’s vehicle, contains the self-conscious aspect of the mind in its potential and latent state. After a period of gestation, this aspect of the mind is then birthed by the subconscious through a natural growth process as it’s complementary opposite. This idea is represented metaphorically as the “Madonna (Mother) and male child” as her divinely conceived offspring. The subconscious mind is the direct emanation of the Higher Soul and is formed out of the memory of all incarnations as an accumulation of integrated experiences to form a summation as our personality.

       The self-conscious mind, which is what most people think of as “the” mind, is birthed and exists solely within the material body as our outer awareness and what we think of as “brain consciousness”. The self-conscious is the masculine offspring as “self-awareness” that’s based exclusively on the body and current life conditions of the body, forms what we refer to as the “ego” as our soul’s identification with the body and the material world. Naturally, because this identity or sense of self is formed entirely within the current incarnation and based on outer awareness of the self, it’s also the mortal part of us that dies with the body. As humans, we are both immortal and eternal and mortal and temporary.

While we tend to think that the self-conscious mind has the ability to generate its own consciousness and therefore has a “will of its own” as a personal will, it actually doesn’t. All material bodies only have the consciousness it acts as a vehicle and vessel for and is able to “draw in” from the Aether and assimilate through resonance. What it does have is the ability to discriminate and evaluate ideas, and is the aspect of the mind that chooses and selects what it focuses on and thinks about, and thereby becomes one with producing a form of “seed” for the subconscious mind to produce inwardly by imagining it as a possible reality that it then uses to give birth to an outer reality of the same nature. This is the aspect of the mind that acts as the gatekeeper to the subconscious through its ability to discriminate and select what it “let’s in” to the womb of the subconscious, and what it rejects and keeps out by withdrawing attention from it.

The self-conscious is the aspect of the mind that forms conscious thoughts and internal dialogue that works together with the subconscious mind to manifest both an internal reality and external reality of the same nature and likeness. There’s always a fundamental paradox at work in everything as the feminine and masculine qualities that operate as complementary opposites, because while we consider the subconscious to be our “inner self” and internal nature, it’s also what produces and gives birth to the “outer world” as an extension, projection, and equivalent of itself as a kind of metaphorical theme. And while we say that the self-conscious mind is our awareness of the outer world, it produces the thoughts and internal dialogue we experience as our inner nature, and is what acts to witness the outer world of which it provided the seed of the subconscious mind for creating.

       Whenever someone is unaware of the multiple aspects of their mind and self (which are most people), and how these various aspects operate together to produce a unified whole as a cohesive inner and outer experience of reality, their self-conscious mind of thought tends to be run almost entirely by their subconscious mind, which operates exclusively out of memory of some form, and is habitual and repetitive in nature. When we remain in a primary state of unconsciousness, unaware of our true capacity for creating in an original manner, most of our thinking is repetitive and based on memory. When this happens our thoughts appear random, sporadic, compulsive in nature, lack meaning and a sense of coherence, and are constant. We simply replay the same type of thoughts as memory over and over like a broken record. All of our thoughts are something we’ve been taught, heard, told by others, or of past experiences that are played out by applying them to current situations producing more of the same type of experiences as variations. The capacities of the self-conscious mind as the ability to select, focus attention, and form thoughts, which together produce a seed for impregnating the subconscious imagination with brand new ideas for creating in an original and unique manner, exists for the most part in an unconscious state and uses its creative ability instead to merely focus on memories of the past and create more of the same type of experiences over and over.

The Higher mind of the human soul has the ability to truly create by choosing and drawing in universal memory of archetypes as qualities and characteristics that naturally forms an idea as a material form. It then willfully projects the archetype into the subconscious mind in the form of a memory that seeds it with a new pattern for creating on different scales within the material plane as both an inner and outer reality. The idea, once drawn in and conceived by the subconscious is reflected in the imagination as  a mental impression that the self-conscious mind witnesses in a passive manner as an inspired thought that comes to it out of nowhere. The self-conscious mind evaluates it and has the option to either choose it by continuing to think about it, or to reject it by saying no and withdrawing attention from it. When the self-conscious selects and continues thinking about the idea, fashioning it as a possible outer reality, it adapts and modifies it by defining it with details and sensory attributes into a new variation as a unique and personalized version.

This unique adapted version of a universal archetype is then concentrated on by continuing to think about, and it acts to re-seed the subconscious mind with a new version of the same idea, as a form of virtual memory that it can easily use to create both an inner and outer reality as the experience of the idea that becomes the basis of an “actual memory”, that serves to shape all three aspects of the self and soul at once. All actual creation (of brand new ideas) within the material world comes as a form of feedback loop that undergoes a transformative process of adaptation and modification between the Higher Self and the lower self, and between the higher and lower planes. This is symbolically represented by the Hexagram as interlaced triangles (a triangle represents the 3-fold nature of the mind) oriented in different directions (star of David) of higher to lower and lower to higher, as in the axiom “as above, so below, and as below, so above, in the manifestation of the One thing”.

       This creative process is also illustrated in the Tetragrammaton or Tetrad, as the four letter name of God, as will, intellect, feeling, and the manifestation of will. This process forms the symbolic basis for the four Elements of the material plane as fire (will), air (thought), water (sensation), and earth (manifestation). Naturally, there are only really two true Elements, that of fire (Higher Will that injects the archetypal idea) and water (subconscious conceives and reflects it), which together in a unified state produce air (thought as form) and its denser version of earth as it’s material manifestation or outer reflection.

Spirit as the Life-Power is always represented as air and breath, which is the unification of the feminine and masculine principles that form a functional whole. Together they work as a single entity. We inhale the outer, integrating and assimilating it into our molecular structure, then exhale infusing the outer reality with the molecules of our inner structure. There’s always a mutual exchange going on between the inner and outer, between the individual self and it’s greater self as the outer reality, which are comprised of the same substance. Will exists as the Higher, creative Soul that operates in dual aspects on the lower, more dense plane as intellect and feeling sensation that together form a unified whole as the etheric body or holographic blueprint as an inner imagined reality that produces the outer world as a material manifestation. Whatever we focus on and think about with emotional intensity forms a kind of request as a command to the Will of the Higher Self, which acts in a neutral and unbiased fashion to create it as an outer experience.

When we reside in a primarily unconscious state, we have no real awareness of our subconscious mind or our higher consciousness, and imagine the thoughts they produce and reflect in the mind as novel thought-forms to be our own willful creation. Yet because the self-conscious aspect has to choose the thoughts given to it by the Higher Mind (usually as a form of guidance or answer to an inquiry) and use its ability to develop them by continuing to think about and concentrate on them, it often doesn’t, and as a result they’re never allowed to take hold, and it reverts back instead to its redundant habitual way of thinking. Whenever the self-conscious rejects an idea and doesn’t allow it to be developed and grown in the imagination to fruition, it doesn’t act to use the idea to seed the subconscious, and it never manifests as part of its outer reality. This is often what happens when we ask for guidance from our Higher Self and when an idea comes to us intuitively in response to our request, we evaluate it momentarily to decide whether we like it or not, and if we don’t, we say “nope, this isn’t it”, usually because it didn’t show up the way we wanted it to. Then we go right back to asking for more guidance.

       Part of the problem many have is they have trouble telling the difference between ideas conceived from the Higher Mind and ideas received through the willful actions of others. The subconscious mind acts as the womb for any suggestion that’s allowed in and to take hold by the self-conscious mind. Whatever we give our attention to while in a passive state without discriminating or evaluating, and readily engage in by becoming a part of it and continuing to think about it, becomes a natural part of our thoughts and our perception of reality. This is most prevalent through various forms of entertainment and passive engagement where we surrender all resistance to the ideas we’re being fed and relinquish the need to discern them intuitively for meaning and accuracy, and as a result, they become a part of our natural thoughts and we think about them in a random and habitual manner. Usually without having any idea of what’s actually going on. Our mind is constantly accessing memory through association of various sorts. This is why songs frequently pop into our head out of nowhere and plays over and over, we imagine a scene in a movie we watched years ago, we think about the news we heard two days ago, we process the ideas of an article that we read over and over, and so on.

We all have the ability to self-create through our ability to choose or select ideas, then develop them by concentrating on them until we form them in our mind as a full, intense sensory reality that gives us an experience that develops them into an imaginary memory that impregnates the subconscious mind where it then becomes a natural part of our behaviors and outer reality, producing an experience of it as an analogy. We can likewise choose to actively develop qualities and characteristics that are latent within us as a means of self-development that evolves us to higher states of being. The ultimate goal of our higher soul is to achieve a state of self-perfection as a form of completion that actively utilizes all of our potential as the basis of being and creating. Who we become in our life is always a matter of choice and what it is we choose to give our attention to and concentrate on by thinking about repetitively. Whatever we choose to think about and create as an imaginary reality and life-like scenario, we impregnate our subconscious with as a pattern for producing as an experience through our activities.

The subconscious, once given an idea as an actual possibility for reality, begins taking action on it while connecting to that same idea in the greater subconscious mind of the material world as a primary form of telepathy or mental transmission. This is the same way instinct and intuition works.  A well-developed idea formed out of energetic essence in the imagination becomes magnetic and acts as a passive vehicle and receptor for electric energy of a complementary nature. It forms an organized pattern of primal matter (light essence) that becomes a holographic blueprint for creating that attracts and “draws in” consciousness as vibration that brings it to life through activity. All material form, whether imagined or actual, provides a kind of empty shell for consciousness to ensoul and bring to life as a vibratory frequency. Just as all frequencies have a pattern in it and a self-organizing force, all patterns as organized matter forms a frequency.  As an idea comes to life inside of us as a living form infused with strong emotions, and attracts and emanates an electromagnetic field, which are the natural forces of the mind that shapes matter as light-essence into material forms that serves as a vehicle for consciousness to express through, it acts to “vibrate” at a certain frequency that vibrates that same idea in everything else through sympathetic resonance, and reorganizes how the outer world “appears” as a composition to be analogous to the inner one. Matter only becomes organized into a fixed form when it’s being “observed” by a mind. When not being observed, it returns to a state of pure potential as a fluctuating field of information.

       All vibration has both a pattern as a living form inherent in it and a self-organizing force that shapes matter into the form of the pattern. How something functions is based on its energetic structure. Form always indicates the behavior, function and natural operations and activity the form takes on. As we think about and form an idea in our mind as a well-defined sensory reality coupled with a strong emotion that produces an inner experience of it as the “meaning” it has, we literally become “one with that idea in spirit” and we tune ourselves to its vibration. Our vibratory frequency is based on our emotional thoughts and what memories we live out of. All vibration as a pattern for producing life act to structure the same type of pattern on all scales and levels simultaneously as both an inner and outer, and an upper and lower, that function together as a unified whole or cohesive and coherent reality of the same nature. Whatever we think about and imagine with intensity we are “literally” creating as our life experiences and creating ourselves by way of those experiences.

When we begin waking up from our unconscious state and begin realizing how our own mind is operating on many different levels to create our entire material existence, we consciously move out of creating through repetitive patterns of past memories, and we can begin to intentionally determine what we focus on, give out attention to, and concentrate on instead. We can begin choosing who and how we’re going to be by intentionally embodying new qualities and characteristics as new ways of being that serve to transform us and our experiences of our self within a corresponding outer reality. We can begin realizing our full potential as a creator and begin acting on ourselves to intentionally create ourselves. We can learn how to consciously direct our attention into ideas that we want to become one as the means of self-creating. We can mentally blend only with ideas we want to become a part of our self and our experience of our self as our outer reality. We can begin using our mind the way it’s designed to be used to create ourselves as a higher, perfected, and glorified being.

Once we begin using universal ideas and archetypal memories born out of our true nature as the means of creating ourselves, we can begin vibrating at a higher level of consciousness that resonates with our Higher Self instead of our lower, unconscious, desire and impulsively driven self. When we strive towards self-perfection as the means of self-creation of our highest potential, we become aware of who and what we’re blending with energetically, and we tend to become steadily isolated from others because very few people are engaged in the same creative process in the same way or at the same level as we are. This is why the spiritual Adept and Initiate are symbolically portrayed as a Hermit. Higher consciousness is the awareness of the true self and the true nature of reality. Consciousness is the root and foundation of all physical manifestation. We are always the one creating our self and our experience of the outer world as a projection and correspondence to our inner world. All reality as we know it is formed out of our relationship with ourselves in everything else.

        From a purely psychological perspective, this is the state of being as the awareness that all volition is universal in nature, not personal. Whatever we choose to think about and become one with is brought into fruition through our Higher Will, which acts as a form of neutral force for creating whatever we ask for and have a predisposition for as an unconscious state that creates out of memory of the past. It’s the realization that the idea of “personal will” originating in the animal body as a function of the personality is an illusion. The material body, like all creatures of the animal kingdom is driven by instinct that comes as intuition and has no consciousness or creative will of its own, but merely acts as the vehicle of expression for the Will of the Higher Soul.

Because the intelligence of the Higher Will works through the intelligence of the lower mind and body, it creates the illusion of being the outcome of a personal effort and aspiration, while in reality it’s simply the final stage as the outcome of work initiated and carried out by the Life-Power Itself. The Great Truth is that the “heavenly man” (Archetypal Man) reproduces himself in the “earthly man”, symbolized by the archetypal “ideal” man of Adam Kadmon (Adam of the Bible), also called the “microcosm”. The Microcosm is a direct reflection of the Macrocosm on a smaller scale and plane because it’s comprised of and operates according to the same laws and principles. In this idea we find the truth hidden as a clue of the spiritual doctrine of the Christ as being “begotten, and not made”. Who was also described as being “in this world but not of it”. We find the meaning of Christ’s words when he said “of myself I am nothing, all power comes from my Father”. We are a reproduction of an original source and not created by our own hand. What we perceive as our physical make-up and concrete mind is but a vehicle and aspect of our higher source as our true nature.

All “original ideas” that are used to perfect the formation of our essential nature comes as a relationship with our immediate environment, what’s stimulated and brought out in us in response to it, and how we spontaneously develop as a result. The only thing that can be actively brought out in us is what’s there in latent form to begin with. We are never given something from another or from a source outside of us, nor do we ever acquire something we didn’t originally possess. The outer world only acts to stimulate, awaken and bring into an active state what exists in latent form within us that’s of the same universal nature. We perfect ourselves to a higher level of consciousness by overcoming emotionally driven instinctual tendencies and becoming aware and identified instead with our true Higher Self. Whatever we “choose” and give our attention to, we unite with in mind and become “like in nature”. By becoming aware of this natural process and choosing to focus exclusively on our Higher Nature, we perfect ourselves and transform into our Divine Nature, free of all internal conflict and indecision born out of an unconscious state.
