The Cosmic Fire of the Mind – Piezoelectric Energy of the Brain and Third-Eye

I’m going to discuss this idea from the perspective of experience rather than hypothesis or following a common belief, so it may go outside of conventional thought and what many have been taught to believe. Many people have never experienced what I’m going to talk about because it typically only occurs after years of consistent meditation and a well-developed ability to concentrate for extended periods of time, which has the power to “grow ideas” through a process of penetration that stimulates an energetic unfolding as a form of evolutionary process. While many focus on the idea and belief that when our pineal gland “calcifies”, our subtle body can’t function through it or operate it to produce biological affects, what I have come to realize intuitively is that it correlates with how the mind becomes crystallized and cast into a fixed-model where all our thoughts and creations become repetitious and habitual, and as a result we stop growing in the most basic sense.

The subtle organ of the third-eye is directly associated with the our “higher mind” (soul), which exists as a “mental state” that vibrates at the frequency of our mental model, referred to in esoteric texts as our soul’s “signature frequency”, represented by the Egyptian Ankh as the “vibratory key” to higher dimensions. The frequency of our individual consciousness determines what we naturally tune into within the greater field of the cosmic mind, and act as a receiver and transducer for archetypal ideas that correlate with our mental model. Though I’m going to convey my experience through my personal model, where the frequency and ideas that proliferate from it are relative to my own knowledge base and level of development, it’s not the ideas themselves you want to focus on, it’s the “process” being illustrated as an operation that conceives cosmic ideas in their “archetypal form” (frequencies), which, once “drawn into” our mental sphere appear as piezoelectricity that acts to stimulate and birth a whole series of correlated ideas that spontaneously evolve out of it as correspondences.

Piezoelectricity makes up what is also referred to as “brain flares”, which form in what appears as a flame-like, electromagnetic pulsation of prismatic colors that shimmer with a dynamic luster, dimming and intensifying, moving in a spiraling, pulsating motion as a graceful flow of dynamic energy. Every impulse or vibration (of air) causes a collision of material particles which produce a flash of light in a particular color. In the hidden realm of invisible forces, an audible sound exists as a subjective color, and a perceptible color exists simultaneously as an inaudible sound, both of which proceed from the same potential substance called the aether, which can be thought of as the plastic substance of astral light. Internal sounds that are not audible to our physical ears are conceived by our “inner organ of sight” through the medium of the mind, in the form of colored chromatic impressions called piezoluminescence, which appears as a phosphorescent glow of electrified air that’s similar to the phenomena known as the aurora borealis. An idea initially comes into the mind as an invisible impulse that then begins clothing itself in a garment of light that makes it perceivable to our physical senses.  

Each person will act to conceive and birth ideas significant to them based on their own individual model and level of development which will be ideal for them in promoting a greater level of understanding. In the cosmic sense there’s no such thing as a fixed idea or form that appears the same way to everyone because it’s our mind as our mental paradigm that shapes everything into a unique form by adapting it to our model, and through a process of “combining”, forms it into a unique variation. An archetype represents as a fundamental idea as a kind of universal concept that acts as a prototype out of which endless variations can be formed while holding true to the same general idea.

Every thought comes as a personal creation spawned by our own mental model and stage in our evolutionary development, where knowledge itself grows within our mind as a new awareness of deeper truths. Our brain (and body) is a “passive receptor” for cosmic intelligence that comes as electrical impulses that propagate naturally throughout the cosmic mind of the aether, which can be understood as the invisible space around us within which we live and have our being. Cosmic impulses are conceived by the subtle organ of the third-eye where, like all electrical impulses that spark in the brain, activate and set in motion a whole chronological process as a chain of associated thoughts. While many take the approach of separating into individual parts what exists and functions as a whole system, our pineal and pituitary body are the only point in our physical body where the mind is translated into biological processes that function as a circuit or current of free-flowing conscious energy that operates our body through our nervous system.

This process has nothing to do with the popular concept of “drawing up” the kundalini energy from the base of the spine, but rather is performed by removing all awareness from the body, while focusing instead on tuning into the cosmic energy in the atmosphere around you, which comes into the body through the top of the head and sets a whole operation in motion within the sphere of the mind itself. All of what we call universal knowledge exists as archetypal memory that’s impressed in the Akasha (Astral Light of vital energy) of the cosmic mind, which we “tune into” by making an inquiry or wondering about something, asking for more information around an idea, setting an intention as a desire to know, praying, and becoming “one in mind” with our Higher Self, which can be understood as our Reasoning mind of higher consciousness.

Our mental model is comprised of all our experiences molded into a single idea (archetype) that vibrates at a frequency that’s unique to us as our signature frequency, much like our fingerprints are used to identify us as an individual. Our signature frequency not only acts as the tuning device we use for tuning into and conceiving ideas that are correlated to our model, but also acts as a transducer that processes and interprets what’s conceived. This comes as a translation formed by how new ideas are adapted to our model and modified into a congruent expression where they can become a natural part of our outer world, which is formed through our ability to perceive it. Everybody translates the same idea in a way that’s unique to them and can be utilized to facilitate their growth through a fundamental “understanding” of universal principles, which only comes as a direct experience that forms the mental concept necessary to apply it at the practical level. We can only utilize what we can first conceptualize as a mental model.

I’m not going to hypothesize about the idea of calcification of our pineal as hindering our ability to conceive higher knowledge, because I don’t know this to be fact, and have come to view it in a different way based on direct experience that neither proves nor disproves it, but rather sidesteps it altogether. There are many ancient spiritual texts that describe the process of pineal calcification taking place around the age of six or seven, when our pineal begins forming a “gold colored sand” as calculi directly associated with the conscious mind of our true higher soul. At around the same age the soft spot of the cranium where the different sections of the skull come together, located directly above the pineal gland also closes and the bones become permanently fused, encasing the higher mind in the tomb of the body. This marks the point in our development when we begin thinking as a means of figuring things out for ourselves and begin making calculated decisions based on our ability to reason, where we start becoming “responsible” for our own mental creations. As our higher mind of thought becomes situated within the third-eye of our pineal, we acquire the ability to turn our thoughts into imaginary realities that allow us to play them out as possibilities providing us with a form of mental rehearsal necessary for making decisions and turning selected ones into actual experiences.

With all that being said, I do however have to say that I also live a very healthy lifestyle and consume natural, whole foods while avoiding fluoridated water as much as possible. What I’ve come to realize about this process is it comes primarily through regular meditation that enhances your ability to subdue and pacify habitual random thoughts to create an “open space” (I call it an arena or stage) for living ideas to enter in their seed-form and begin expressing fluently without outside interference. You have to maintain a single-minded focus for long periods of time, while also developing yourself morally to as pure a state as possible. You can train your mind by regularly engaging in deep states of concentration born out of devoted study of higher, spiritual knowledge and ideals, where you visualize the concepts being presented metaphorically. As we contemplate ideas while in a meditative state, where we clear our mind to form an open space and then focus on an idea that has been formed into an “ideal”, we infuse it with mental energy that brings it alive with sensation, causing it to begin vibrating in harmony with us, and it begins systematically unfolding and growing within us as a part of us.

The information conceived comes in what I call “seed form” that’s symbolic in nature and proliferates by “unfolding and enfolding” through subconscious processes. In my experiences, the form that takes shape out of a pulsating light is nearly always “faces” of some kind, centered around the “eyes”, formed using a variety of elements associated with the mineral, plant, animal, and human kingdoms. For anyone who has studied occult sciences, particularly in regard to what’s called the highest aspect of the mind, called the supernal, superconscious, or cosmic mind of archetypes, the 3 aspects which form “one idea” are represented symbolically as a head or face, because it represents the countenance (inner nature) of the entity. It reveals the “essence” or hidden, invisible nature of the entity ensouling the form. The “eyes” have always been considered “the window of the soul”, and we direct our vital energy into whatever it is we look at and give our attention to. Our “attention”, which is an aspect of our higher, conscious mind, is a “stimulating force” that penetrates material forms and stimulates them into activity through a process of sympathetic resonance.

While many people believe that light itself is the information or knowledge of the spiritual plane, it’s actually the means through which true knowledge as invisible archetypes “form themselves” and take on an outer appearance in order to be “perceived and known”. What we call the spiritual plane exists as archetypal ideas (cosmic memory) that are impressed within and populate the atmosphere (Astral Light) around us as invisible electromagnetic fields that vibrate at a particular frequency and act to “organize light” into an outer form as a reflection where it can be perceived in its symbolic form. How it’s shaped into a metaphorical idea is based on the individual mind that conceives it and forms it into a mirror image as a reflection within their own mind. All universal ideas and concepts appear differently to everyone who perceives them because they’re formed by their own mind in relation to it.

An idea is conceived in its symbolic form where its then shaped into a personalized version by being adapted to the person’s existing model where a whole inner unfolding is prompted as a “chain of associated ideas” that are all correlated with each other. This chain of association comes as a thought process that proliferates spontaneously, one out of another, as a form of growth process that brings new realizations that provide us with deeper insights into the nature of the idea born out of a direct inner experience. We literally “acquire knowledge” of a universal nature that shows us things we didn’t know before. We “grow knowledge” from within that comes as a direct experience born out of a universal concept in symbolic form. This is because we only “know” something by becoming one with it in mind and spirit, where we acquire knowledge of it through an intimate “inner experience”, and through the experience new realizations about its true nature propagate naturally and expand our awareness.

When we look to others to explain what we can only know through direct experience, we become like a dumb beast that can’t reason or think for ourselves, and therefore need to be told. The only way we receive knowledge from higher planes of the conscious mind is by tuning into the cosmic mind of the luminiferous ether through a form of meditation as a single-minded form of concentration. We subdue the habitual activity of our lower conscious mind, where we become a “passive receptor” able to be impregnated by the active force of our higher mind. We become “one with an idea” in its universal, archetypal seed-form, and we allow it to unfold in our awareness while simply “observing it” without trying to change it or take control of how it unfolds. We acquire higher knowledge by “asking for it” (ask and you shall receive), which tunes our mind to conceive it, and then “watching it” as it begins gestating within us in a free-flowing, pulsating motion of constantly “becoming”. We all have what’s called “mirror neurons” in our brain that allows us to “learn” by watching an idea as it expresses through a process of some kind. By being a passive container for a living idea to unfold and express as a dynamic body of light, we become mentally impressed with that idea as an actual memory, and we acquire the means for applying it as a result. We only “acquire” and maintain what we understand in its working form. All wisdom only comes through direct experience which forms an understanding of it.

My Experience

I can only describe how this process works for me, which, though your process may differ, the basic idea will resonate as being the same, because its all based on and operates through universal principles as “processes” that are creative in nature. It always clothes an invisible idea in vitalized light where it can be observed as a “dance” and evolutionary unfolding within the individual mind. While we may perceive it through different forms and by using different elements and models, its intrinsic nature is always the same and never changing. All higher cosmic knowledge is a living system that expresses in infinite ways based on the model it “combines with” and is modified to be like. Its never dogmatic or fixed according to one person’s interpretation or conventional concept used to represent it. All universal wisdom is archetypal in nature and forms itself in a new way based on the mind perceiving it. Our perception always comes by shaping light into the outer form of our mind as a matrix (larger version of the same pattern in a coherent state), where we “experience ourselves” as our outer environment and reality. Archetypes never form the same way twice, even in the same individual, and are in a constant state of evolving into new forms of itself based on combinations that reformulate it.

Meditation and Concentration

When meditating, I form an idea in my mind that I want more information around. I then go through a full relaxation process where I release all tension being held in various parts of my body, clearing my mind of chatter and habitual thoughts that propagate as impulses, then focus exclusively on an idea in its symbolic or metaphorical form (I use Sacred Geometry, archetypes of the Tarot, symbols, metaphorical concepts of the Kabbalah, or sequence of numbers and letters). This is what many refer to as “setting an intention”, which is a primary method used for “accessing memory” within the aetheric-astral field around us. The memory inherent in this field is neutral and in a passive state of potential and is activated (vibrated) by being drawn into our mind. As I focus on an idea, I tune myself to the frequency of that idea while infusing it with the “desire” to know, which is the magnetic force that draws into my mind any correlated information that exists in the atmosphere around me.

This usually starts off as light that either appears unorganized and random, that then begins forming, or as a swirling motion of light that starts on one side, rising up, forming momentarily, then fades off to the other side in a pulsating, rhythmic manner, giving rise to another one in its place. Occasionally it starts as what appears to be a gas-like misty field of light that pulsates as a respiration that expands and contracts, becoming vivid and crystal-like, and then fading back into an impression. I focus all my attention on the light-form while starting the process by thinking about what I already know about the idea (much like priming a well), the light starts forming into a holographic shape or impression that usually resembles a face or upper torso, and takes on a distinct pattern that continues to develop into a form as a pulsating flow of light that becomes fluid-like and more intense in color.

The light, which I perceive as more of a “vivified essence” usually starts off grayish and as more of a neutral tone, then as its concentrated it intensifies into colors of various intensity and hues. The primary color that starts the process is usually a yellowish-green color, and then becomes iridescent, shimmering with other colors as a form of luster. Sometimes there’s no distinct form but more of a pulsating color pattern that seems to prompt a whole series of thoughts as insights that bring new realizations. Other times a face of some kind will start to form, and as I focus intently on it, concentrating my awareness while maintaining a passive mindset, it forms into a holographic face and image that’s constructed out of a combination of features as natural elements, that becomes vibrant with prismatic colors while continuing to evolve through taking on unique features that steadily change its appearance as a form of growth and fluent development.

Once it hits a certain point in an evolving formation, it then begins dissolves back into flowing essence momentarily, and another image of a similar nature starts taking shape. The same type of facial image forms in a somewhat different way and continues through an evolutionary flow that transforms it by taking on new attributes and qualities that changes how it appears. As this cyclical rhythm continues, I concentrate on the eyes and feel drawn into it where I become one with it in essence and mind, and while in a state of being “one with it”, it “reveals” itself to me. I move past the outer appearance it takes on and presents itself through, and come into direct contact with its inner nature, where a whole process unfolds as an eloquent flow that resembles the dance of a flickering flame. Its as if it communicates knowledge by how it expresses as a dance that stimulates me with a sensuous feeling of inner connection. It infuses me with a deep sense of connection that comes from watching it, and a whole idea as a thought process systematically arises and starts playing out in my mind.

Through my own thoughts I realize new things about it that I didn’t know before. Sometimes new images form as symbols that show me the significance of the idea-symbols used in ancient texts and monuments that give me new insights into their true meaning and the processes they represent in communicating higher, spiritual wisdom. For example, one time I was concentrating on how wisdom comes from higher dimensions and an image of a Dyad formed. As I started thinking of the center being similar to a vagina or birth canal of the womb, focusing on the oval part of the overlapping spheres, it suddenly formed into the open mouth of a snake, and the face of a man came through it. I saw it as the mouth of a dragon that formed a wormhole through space, which acted as a portal for moving between dimensions, and then it suddenly shifted slightly, giving me a side view, where it looked just like the Mayan god Quetzalcoatl. From that point on I realized what that symbol represented.

Another time, a cloud formed and in center of the cloud a face formed that then seemed to perch on top of it, where the cloud became its body or foundation. As I watched it, it began pulsating with vivid colors similar to the glowing embers of a fire, and the face was communicating with me telepathically as a form of guidance. The face then separated from the glowing, fiery cloud, rising above it and then a pillar of light formed between it and the flaming cloud, and it went through the pillar and disappeared into the cloud-like mist, and the cloud then opened up and a bright light shown through it with intense rays, much like the sun breaking through the clouds, and it transformed into an eye. The whole time this was happening it was communicating with me subliminally. After this experience, I realized what the symbol often depicted in esoteric sciences as a face residing on top of a cloud that was guiding someone meant, and how the universal laws were communicated through what was described as a burning bush, and how we communicate with higher powers using our third-eye, represented as a “single eye”, formed by becoming one with our higher mind and perceiving the world through a higher form of consciousness. The interesting thing about this type of communication, which works primarily through symbols, is that as I watched them flowing and unfolding I felt as if I was being given, or made aware of a vast amount of knowledge through a process of intuition, which connects us to the inner nature of things where we perceive everything as being an intricate part of a greater whole.

By concentrating on an idea in its symbolic form while thinking about it as more of a concept, it takes on a life of its own and starts shapeshifting into other ideas in their symbolic form, which are all correspondences of each other. Different cultural symbols and glyphs are used to communicate the same universal processes. The cosmic mind speaks the language of symbols, and when we tune into the cosmic mind of the luminiferous ether, ideas unfold within our mind as correlating symbols that are often related to many different cultures. This is for several different reasons, one being that while words of a different language may be unintelligible for anyone who doesn’t know that language, symbols and images can be understood by anyone as representing the same idea, and secondly, because symbols require interpretation, in which everyone interprets the same symbol using their own mental model and cultural conditioning, which is necessary for understanding it and being able to utilize it in the practical sense.

While we tend to think that all ideas within our material world should mean the same thing to everyone, at the universal level, every thought is an individual creation. In the higher sense of true intelligence, its all about borrowing universal concepts as the means of forming personal ones, where the principle involved remains the same, but the model as a concept used for understanding it in the practical sense is different for everyone, making it ideal for them. On the higher planes of cosmic knowledge, every thought is creative, and every creation is an expression of our individuality. Dogma as ideas that are rigid, fixed, and dead, no longer alive and evolving into new variations based on combinations, is only prevalent to unconscious, animal-like beings who haven’t been bestowed with a conscious mind and the ability to think, and create the reality of their thoughts, as a way of “knowing themselves” through the experience of their own creation.

As I concentrate on an idea in its symbolic form, it prompts a synchronistic unfolding of ideas that are all of the same type and class. It connects a single idea as a concept to all other ideas of a similar nature, expanding our awareness around all of them in terms of how they’re connected. Each new idea unfolds out of a preceding idea, showing you new aspects of it that broaden your knowledge and understanding, not only of the idea itself as a formation, but also of its hidden nature being disguised by its outer appearance. The colors it takes on also communicate information about the part of it you can’t know through its shape alone.

Once you engage in this type of meditation which reveals and deals with ideas as they exist in the astral plane of light-forms, you’ll come to understand what has been referred to throughout history and the occult sciences as nature spirits. These are often portrayed as fairies, trolls, undines, salamanders, knolls, green men, and so forth. Its very common for the faces formed to have a unique combination of features that range from crystalline and prismatic, to plant, animal, and human features, that imbue it with the attributes and qualities that make-up its nature. This demonstrates the mind’s ability to order and organize the 4 Elements of the material plane into living entities that represent cosmic principles, archetypes, and natural forces on the spiritual plane. An image contains within it a significantly higher amount of information than words do, while lending themselves to an endless number of interpretations formed not only by every individual, but also by the same individual while in a different mood or state of mind, or at a different stage of their development.

The Absolute Law of Karma – Mortality, Immortality, and the Nature of Destiny

In most esoteric texts and spiritual doctrine Karma is referred to as the “absolute law” because its fundamental in nature and transpires naturally through our very nature and way of being. We’re all born into the world with a “predisposition” that naturally equips us with everything we need to form particular type of experiences and “become” a certain type of person based on those experiences. We’re “designed”, so to speak, with fundamental traits that form our basic character, temperament, natural emotional states and sensitivities, behavioral tendencies, interests, and natural talents, all of which are then developed through our family dynamic and the behavioral dynamics being expressed in the environment around us, and of which we play a natural role in. Out of this dynamic combination of factors all working together in a completely natural way, our mental paradigm begins forming in a way that sets a particular type of “story” in motion as our “life theme”, which imposes a direction on our life as our “destiny”. In order to understand how Karma operates in shaping our life, we have to begin by realizing that as humans, we’re born into the physical world with a dual mind and nature, where we exist as both animal and divine. Where we have both a higher mind that’s intelligent, creative and immortal, and a lower mind that’s automated through instinctual impulses, emotionally driven, and mortal in nature.   

What connects us naturally to all life on Earth is our subconscious mind, also called the collective unconscious or mass consciousness of the group mind, and what connects us to our divine and heavenly nature is our conscious mind, which bestows us with the ability to create the reality of our thoughts through choice and will, which is how we shape ourselves to be an “individual” (archetype) in our own right. Our lower, animal nature causes us to identify in the fundamental sense with whatever group, culture, or society we’re born into, where we don’t perceive ourselves as existing apart from that group and we operate out of what you can think of as the “herd mentality”. While we’re operating out of our lower mind we move in-sync with whatever is happening around us based on how we’re being influenced by external forces, and we look to others to tell or show us what to do and how to do it. While operating primarily out of our lower nature we “create ourselves” out of a fundamentally “unconscious state”, where we lack any real individuality that’s born out of our ability to think for ourselves. This part of us is mortal, which means that when we die, all our thoughts and memories of ourselves that were born out of the group mind (instinct) blend back into the “astral field of instinct” that girdles the Earth and is related to our “species” and “class” as a form of natural intelligence.

This is what the term “mortal” is referring to. We are both a mortal and immortal being, where we have both an “unconscious and conscious mind” that work in harmony with each other in creating what we experience as an outer “reality”. When we live primarily out of an unconscious state, which operates habitually out of the model formed through our initial conditioning, we simply use the memories of past to create more and more of the same type of experiences in the present. While our formative conditioning establishes the basis of our mental paradigm (around puberty) and imposes an initial direction on our life through the “universal theme” we naturally begin employing as the means of creating how we experience ourselves, once we become adults and our conscious mind begins developing, we can then take over creating ourselves by exercising the ability to think for ourselves in a rational, reasoning manner and make our own decisions about who we’re going to be and what we’re going to do as a result. As we make conscious decisions that transmute the habitual patterns playing out in our life in a systematic manner, and we act on our decisions to turn them into a reality of our own making, we begin experiencing ourselves in a new way. It’s only the “part of ourselves” that we create in a conscious, self-aware, and deliberate manner to “form ourselves” as a product of our own making that’s “immortal” and transcends the earthly plane at physical death. This part of us ultimately becomes the “karmic seed” formed out of our soul’s memory of itself that establishes the basis for our next cycle of growth (incarnation) as a natural form of evolution.

The principle of karma, like so many spiritual ideas, has been trivialized in our new-age society to the point where few people are able to realize it for what it is, or learn how to work with it in a meaningful way as a means of exercising their will to create in order to assume control of their own destiny. We tend to view life from a separative mentality, where we take what exists naturally as a part of a greater whole and break it down into separate parts, events or actions, that we then imagine are unrelated and independent of each other, and we never bring them back together as a means of identifying the common theme playing out on a larger scale. Some have even been taught to think of karma as punishment or retribution for past deeds of some kind being administered by a higher power or outer force of some kind. But karma, like all things born out of the mind, operates in a completely natural and lawful manner through the workings of universal laws, and in the most basic sense comes as the “experience” of our own mental creation from both the giving and receiving end.

Our karma comes as the expression of our “soul’s essence”, which forms our character as our inner nature. Our “being” is formed out of our character and morality, out of which all our thoughts, feelings, passions, needs, desires, attitudes, and activities issue forth naturally as a form of self-expression. All of our natural behaviors and deeds result from our moral values, beliefs, emotional states, and memories. Our character is something we’re always in charge of creating based on internal processes we engage in naturally as a means of experiencing the world around us and is governed largely by our conscience, which is our moral nature. Everything you do in life comes as the expression of your character formed out of the accumulation of all your life experiences, translated into “memory”. Our higher soul’s (true self) constitution, which is of “pure mind”, is formed out of memory produced through our own ability to create how we experience things. Memory, like the soul itself, is never fixed, static or singular, it’s always in the process of transforming and evolving as you go along in life through the “ongoing story” you’re always telling by how you live, and through the incorporation of new types of experiences that reshape existing patterns. The most basic way we’re always “creating ourselves” is through the ongoing story we’re always in the process of telling ourselves through our internal dialogue (thoughts) that follows a common theme, and we’re always the author, main character, director, and producer of our own story.

How We Create Ourselves through our Life Story

Our life story is formed out of what you might call universal themes that are common to everyone as a general idea, while also being developed in a novel way that make them unique to us. For example, one of the most prevalent universal themes shared by the majority of people comes as feeling “not good enough” or “not being loved or wanted”, and though this idea forms the basis for the story we start telling ourselves as the means of experiencing our life, it’s shaped in a unique way by each of us based on how we “internalize and interpret” everything (using our model) to make it “mean” we’re not good enough. Yet every person has their own unique situation and set of circumstances, family group and dynamic, or social group that they use as the means for creating internal processes where they take any situation and reform it so that it adequately tells the story of “not being good enough or worthy” of being loved somehow. Each person will use different elements and group interactions to create the “same type” of experience of themselves. We’re always taking what you can call a universal idea and using it as the basis for forming a personalized version of the same idea.

The theme acts as what you might call a fundamental pattern or energetic template that orders, organizes, and produces an internal representation that consistently produces the same type of experience. Because this story is set into motion at a young age before we develop our rational, reasoning mind, and our ability to discriminate, we don’t even know to question whether it’s true or not because it forms the very basis for how we perceive and experience ourselves and the world around us. Our mind works naturally in any situation to only activate (notice) and call forth (focus on) the information that can be used to tell our story, while everything that would ordinarily contradict or disprove it is ignored or goes unnoticed. We interpret any number of behaviors, no matter how well intended, to mean, once again, that we’re not wanted or good enough. We then react to our own internal representation as if it’s true, which determines how we conduct ourselves and interact with others, which is what turns it into an actual reality. So, our life’s story, which is the most basic way that we create how we experience ourselves, evolves naturally out of our own mental and emotional state.

How Our Higher and Lower Nature Blend into One

While some have formed the belief that we “choose” our parents and the family unit we’re born into, most likely due to the part of us that reincarnates is also the aspect of our self and mind that has the ability to make decisions and willfully act them out as an experience, this is also the part of our mind that functions exclusively out of higher laws of the mind that are universal and all-encompassing in nature. Our “genes” not only record and make a permanent record of our memories, but they also form our physical characteristics and imbue us with natural behaviors and tendencies derived from our ancestral lineage. When we come into a physical body, we do so based on the memories inherent in our parents and family genes, which gives us correlating physical characteristics and natural tendencies that are then developed through our family dynamics and act to form the basis for re-establishing and setting our life story in motion as a continuation of our past. Everyone in our family shares not only the same basic characteristics but also play a natural role in acting out the same type of dynamic as shared story. We pair up, so to speak, and combine with whatever is “like us” in terms of our soul memory, which correlates with and acts to enhance what you might think of as our “soul’s design”, formed as a kind of “memory-seed”, out of which all our life experiences naturally proliferate in an automatic and spontaneous fashion.

Memory is archetypal and thematic in nature and forms “patterns of activity” (natural behaviors) developed as the expression of our character and personality. Because we share the same characteristics of our immediate family along with the ancestral memories associated with our bloodline, we naturally develop behavioral dynamics born out of shared character traits and tendencies, which are correlated to our soul’s constitution coming into this realm. This establishes and forms the foundation of the same fundamental patterns of our karma as the ideal character traits and predisposition that form our life-theme, while also setting them in motion as a continuation of our past life experiences, all of which evolve systematically out of an unconscious state.

This dynamic process set in motion through our childhood experiences that form our “mental paradigm” as our “formative conditioning”, functions in a completely natural way as a form of automation where we continue to live out of our conditioning without having an awareness that we change it by employing our higher mind. If we don’t “wake up” and become aware of our higher nature and realize how it is we’re creating our life experiences, we simply live out of the patterns of our conditioning as our karma. By becoming aware of our own internal processes and realizing how it is that we’re creating our own life experiences out of habitual tendencies, we can begin taking control of our own mind and intentionally directing our thoughts to form new ways of perceiving ourselves in relationship with the world around us. Once we begin realizing that we are in essence the one creating how we experience the world around us by how we think, act and interact with it, we begin participating in our own development and begin learning how to tell a new story about ourselves and our life. This is what the saying “you reap what you first sow”, is showing us.

Our Soul’s Essence as Our Internal Nature

Everything precedes according to its nature. Our destiny is encoded in our nature as the accumulation and synthesis of all our life experiences that consistently develops our character and the formulation of qualities we actively express in a consistent manner. Each one of us is perfectly designed to fulfill our destiny in a semi-predetermined way. Our karma forms our soul’s memory as a dynamic formula of character traits developed to different degrees, levels, and potencies. Out of this seeded formula of attributes qualities, and traits, our entire way of being systematically emerges as our personality, likes and dislikes, fears and phobias, what we’re interested in and gravitate towards naturally, what kind of ideas we’re attracted to and associate with, the values naturally instilled in us as our conscience, and what it is we can “see ourselves” being and doing. Our inner nature forms our predisposition and temperament, out of which our feelings, emotions, and thoughts naturally proliferate and formulate into ideas about our self and our life. The nature of our soul’s preexisting memory, formed as the accumulation and translation of all our life experiences up to that point, forms the basis for reestablishing and continuing our ongoing story and narrative we’re always telling ourselves that gives them the meaning they have.

While many people believe meaning is objective and that what something means to us is the same thing it means to everyone, this is not at all true. Meaning is something we all “make-up” based on how we present things to ourselves and the interpretations we form as a result. Our life story is set in motion when we’re kids and we have an emotionally intense experience of some kind, and while we haven’t developed the ability to reason yet, we try to somehow make sense of it. While we’re kids, we’re still connected to our parents and siblings and haven’t begun forming a separate identity, and so we tend to make everything out to be about us somehow, or our fault. When mommy’s upset and scolding or punishing us, we make it “mean” we’re bad somehow, and as a result, she doesn’t love or want us anymore. When our parent criticizes us or put us down in some way, we don’t know to question them or realize that’s just how they are and doesn’t have any bearing on us, and instead we form a belief about ourselves based on it. As kids, we tend to believe whatever it is we hear being said about us, which sets what becomes our life theme in motion and that we continue to build out of as we go along.

Meaning and the story we’re always telling ourselves about things is how we take all of what appears as independent and random ideas and mold them all back into a single idea. If you observe your own internal dialogue and the nature of your thoughts, what you’ll soon realize is that you’re always explaining, describing, judging, and validating your beliefs about the way things are, forming an idea of them as an “internal representation” that represents a particular “type” of experience, that you then use as the means for anticipating and forming how you actually experience them. We don’t experience things as they truly are “apart from us”, but by how we remake them by molding them into our ideas about them. The ongoing story we’re always in the process of telling ourselves as our thoughts about things is how we naturally use our conscious mind (the story-teller) to direct our subconscious (the builder) on what to build into our outer environment so we can apprehend it through our ability to perceive it. We then perceive it as a natural part of our outer world where we can form an experience of it, and as we form an experience of it we simultaneously “associate and relate” to our own experience, and shape ourselves “through” the experience created as being a natural part of it.

Due to this all occurring in a completely natural and automatic way, we usually fail to realize that we’re not only the one doing it, but also that we have the innate ability to take control of our own internal processes and create new experiences of ourselves. When we remain unaware of how it is we’re creating our own experiences of life, we perceive life as “happening to us” rather than being determined “by us”, and we’re shaped by whatever and whomever we live around and associate with. Inner processes are governed and set in motion by how we’re being stimulated by others and world around us that awaken, vibrate, and call forth in us matching qualities and emotions, and we create our internal experience as a reaction that comes in a fluent and automatic way. In the general sense, we’re a product of our environment and we become “like” whatever it is we associate with, identify with, and live around consistently.

When this all occurs in an unconscious and natural way, our life is predestined as the enactment and continuation of our karma, where we continue to live out of the reality formed by our previous experiences. This principle of accumulated memory forming the basis for all our current experiences, can be understood by recognizing that most of our thoughts that run automatically in a habitual manner come by replaying the experiences of our past over and over, keeping us in the same state of mind we were in when the memory was formed, and that we use as the means of anticipating the future as a continuation or reenactment of the same idea. We anticipate what’s to come and form our expectations out of similar ideas experienced in the past. We are “predestined” for a certain kind of life based on our karmic seed as our essential design, which transpires thematically and automatically out of a primarily unconscious state, where we lack an awareness of the fact that we’re the one creating and determining all our own thoughts and experiences and the one forming the interpretation of our life events to make them mean what they do.

Redemption and Resolving Karmic Patterns

We’re all born into this life as an archetypal being. What this means is that we are each comprised of multiple attributes and qualities that are developed in different ways and to different extents, that start off in a primarily latent form, only some of which are activated and brought out in us and developed according to our family dynamics and life situation, while others remain inactive and unused inside of us. These latent aspects of our nature represent our “potential” for new types of growth and provide the key for using in order to “transform ourselves” by utilizing and thereby developing new parts of ourselves. This process, like all mental processes, comes primarily in two different ways; one as responding to challenging life events and new situations, and one through self-awareness and evaluation where we consciously “choose” to employ certain qualities as a means of correcting our own weaknesses and character flaws, or to begin stepping into and associating with our higher and more divine nature.

This is the process of transformation and spiritual regeneration undertaken by initiates by going through difficult and challenging situations while remaining fully awake and self-aware throughout the event, and actively choosing “how” you’re going to be in relation to the event or happening. Where you actively decide whether you’re going to “rise to the occasion” and use it to grow yourself in new ways or shrink back and allow yourself to be overcome by it. When we learn to look at our life as the ideal means for developing ourselves by how we go through difficult or intense situations, we can use our life experience as the means for becoming more aware of our own internal processes and we can use our will in being able to maneuver them in a more productive and intentional way.

As you’re stimulated by the events of your life, if you turn your attention inward and become more aware of what parts of you “come alive” in response to it you can begin recognizing how it is you normally function in an unconscious way through a reactive state. As a feeling and emotion come alive inside of you, what you’ll notice is that it’s directly correlated to an aspect of your character. When you remain unaware of what’s happening and why, you resort to habitual tendencies and react in an unconscious and automatic way based on a past memory associated with the same feeling. Once you begin learning how to refrain from reacting while maintaining a calm inner state, and you turn your attention inward and become aware of the internal processes set in motion, you’ll realize that you have a choice as to how you’re going to respond. If you subdue the emotion prompting the immediate reaction you can bring it under your control and remain calm while processing it through your rational mind. When you’re able to look at what’s normally a highly charged emotional situation with a calm, analytical, reasoning mindset, you can see what’s operating at the subtle level and maintain control over your own mind and behavior.

The means for transforming any quality or mental state is by working with its complementary aspect, which acts to counterbalance it. For example, when a pronounced feeling of fear is invoked in you and you remain self-aware, you realize you have a choice as to whether or not you’re going to be a coward, back down, or freak out, or whether you’re going to be courageous, evaluate the situation in terms of what’s making you feel afraid and why, and step boldly into it with a sense of confidence. By doing this anytime you feel afraid or scared by something and consistently choosing to be brave and confident in yourself, you act to gradually transform that quality and tendency in you, while steadily developing the new quality in its place. As you commit to doing this in a consistent manner, you accumulate more and more experiences of yourself as being courageous and confident in your ability to handle whatever it is you’re facing, and after awhile the fear subsides entirely.

As you transmute one aspect of your character by employing the opposite aspect, you transform your nature, which changes how you experience yourself, and it simultaneously changes your “life story”, which is what forms your “destiny” and who you become through your life experiences. You literally impose a new direction on your life by becoming a different kind of person. As “you change”, your life changes in the exact same way. As you form new experiences of yourself you steadily evolve the memory born out of fear and feeling easily overwhelmed by it, and you create “new karma” as a result. Karma isn’t something that’s imposed on us by an outside force or authority, it’s formed by “being in the experience” of our own mental creation. Karma comes as the experience our own creation, born out of our actions (both internally and externally), from both the giving and receiving end of the same act or pattern. What we put out in the world as our actions, we experience as happening to us by an outside force when it returns. All energy set in motion by our will moves in a circular, spiraling motion, and always returns to the same place from where it began. Life, which is formed as a “life-cycle based on time”, is cyclical in nature, and all heavenly bodies return to the same position from which they originally started.

Our Soul is an Archetype

Out of the One come the many, and the many coalesce together to form the One. A single entity divides into diversified aspects of itself as a means of expressing and creating an experience of itself through its own expression, which is then absorbed and synthesized back into the One from which they came at the end of that life-cycle. We come into this life as an “archetype” (a state formed out of a dynamic formula of attributes, qualities, and characteristics that express naturally in forming our personal “myth”) which expresses through multiple aspects of itself to produce a wide variety of experiences, most of which seem unrelated to each other and random in nature, and then, as we die, all the memories attained in our life are categorized and synthesized back into a single unit as an archetype. Our archetype forms our soul’s “signature frequency” as a prototype or etheric template, that’s then cast into another form as it’s essential nature and morality. Our spiritual nature isn’t a single form, it’s what shapes and gives life to all forms. An archetype is a prototype that can take on many different forms while maintaining the same inner nature, and it’s this part of us that’s reincarnated into a new form each time we’re born into a new body and personality.

Quintessence – The Fifth Element of the Pentad, Self-Perfection, and the Holographic Principle

The term “quintessence”, which can be translated as meaning the fifth element or essence, symbolizes the idea of an “ideal” as a prototype formed by bringing divine qualities into perfect expression. It represents what you can think of as a state of “self-perfection”, achieved by using your higher mind to transform weaknesses into strengths as a means of purifying your essence as your intrinsic nature. What we commonly refer to as our “soul” is formed as an “archetypal matrix” comprised of a unique formula of attributes and qualities that make up our “character”, energetic constitution, and essential nature, out of which all our thoughts, feelings, and actions naturally form as a means of self-expression. This idea forms what’s called the fifth element of the aether or mind, which is formed by coalescing the four primary elements (fire, water, air, and earth) of the subtle plane into a single element, where four are made into one.

The 5th element of the aether and the principle through which it operates is symbolized esoterically by the pentagram, which holds the 4 elements in an ordered, balanced, and symmetrical state as a mental construct. The aether, like the mind of which it’s an inherent part, exists as a field of archetypal information as “ideas” in their potential state, that populate the luminiferous aether as possibilities for expression in order to produce particular types of experience. The concept formed by the pentagram as a five-pointed star within a circle, represents the mind (circle) as encompassing and infusing the 4 elements (lower triads) into a 5th element. Our mind exists as a “field of information” formed into a cohesive “memory” as our mental paradigm that vibrates at a particular frequency, and is what forms the “perceptual lens” that we look through to see the reality formed by our paradigm.  

When we use the term “planes”, which represent a hierarchical structure of higher and lower planes that exist as interwoven “aspects” of each other, where one systematically evolves out of the other, we can also view this idea as larger fields that contain smaller fields within it that are all of the same “nature” as a vibratory frequency. This idea can be thought of as a larger field that regenerates itself as smaller fields formed out of the same type of information in a more concentrated and solidified state. For example, the mind is represented as originating and residing on a higher level that oversees the lower plane and contains the lower plane “within it” in its “entirety” as a whole cycle of formation (life cycle). This is because the mind is the “model” that’s constantly being used to “activate information” inherent in the greater group mind of mass consciousness, where selected bits of information are then formed into a unique whole that acts as a “mirror” for experiencing the reality of our own paradigm.

The 4 elements of esoteric sciences can also be thought of as the “4 states of matter”, which describe the process of generation where an invisible idea is used as an energetic form to coalesce light into outer shape of the same nature. The 4 states of matter, which describe a process of solidification, result from a “spark” (electrical impulse) that electrifies plasma (an invisible source of energy), causing it to begin organizing as a gaseous shape, that appears fleeting and ghost-like, and then becomes more concentrated and solidified into a liquid, flowing, unified movement of crystallized light, which then becomes solid as a biological, living entity. We can observe this same process of creation taking place on various time-lines throughout the universe as nebula that births star-systems, which ultimately represent archetypal energies that are impressed in the very fabric of space itself, and not only represent a psychological state, but also acts on “other minds” to influence them into the same state as a mode of operation or particular type of expression.

The mind is an invisible field of organized information (mental model) that acts as an electric charge (frequency) that electrifies plasma (etheric substance) causing it to form as a highly organized living system of information. It’s the “life energy” that constructs an “outer reflection” of itself within the astral plane, and is what animates its own form with life. The mind forms itself as an outer light body (shell) that it then uses as the means of perceiving and forming an experience of itself through its own mental construct. A body of light is created out of the 4 “states” matter (Primordial substance) goes through in forming into what appears as a solid, yet fluent physical body that it both encompasses and permeates, forming a pentagonal symmetry, where the 5th element of the mind (subtle body) resides on a higher plane or greater level and is what orders (selects), organizes (constructs), and animates (gives life to) the lower or outer plane of material formation, we call reality. All of what we perceive as a material reality (dimensional construct of light) operates through the principle of polarity, and just as the higher plane contains and maintains the entire lower plane within it as a reflection of itself, it also operates on the same plane (linear) to form an inner and outer, where the outer is being produced as a reflection of the inner. This is represented by the center of the star forming a pentad that’s a reverse image (orientation) of the outer form it’s acting to emanate and maintain as a stable construct. Once the outer is formed to reflect the inner as a projection, they’re then combined to form an “experience” as a process of self-regeneration, personal growth, and developing ourselves by way of our own expression.

Hermetica

The Pentagram – Upright and Inverted

The 5-pointed star has always been used as a symbol of excellence and brilliance. It’s a symbol of superiority, power, and authority used for warding off or overcoming evil, represented by an inverted star where the elemental instincts driven by passions govern the mind. When inverted it forms the general shape of what we have come to perceive as the “devil”, which is also represented by the archetype known as Pan. The term “pan” means “all”, symbolized with horns (a divided mind), red hair, hooves, and a tail (a man combined with an animal), representing the lustful fertility of Nature, which induces frenzied excitement and panic or pandemonium (chaos and disorder). The upright star represents “mind over matter”, where the higher, human mind of rational thought and reasoning has control over the lower, animal mind of the subconscious, and when inverted represents the reverse, or resistance to positive qualities of excellence, purity, and goodness.

The pentagram represents “regeneration”, where the mind regenerates itself as an outer projection in order to experience and come to “know itself” through its own creation as a mirror image of itself. The principle of regeneration and growth comes as an incremental process of accumulating experiences of yourself that are built up over time and used to grow and evolve yourself. This process of self-evolution is represented by the Fibonacci Sequence of numbers, also called the Golden Mean, which represents harmony and beauty in how the “part” relates to the “whole”. The Golden Mean demonstrates how the most recent past forms the basis for the present, which are then combined to form the basis for the future as a natural process of growth and development that evolves itself through the “feedback” acquired from its own expression and activity. 1+1=2, we then add (combine) 1+2=3, 2+3=5, 3+5=8, 5+8=13, 8+13=21, and so on.

The human body, when the arms and legs are extended to form an “X”, form the shape of a pentagram. This number, symbol, and idea correlates with the Heirophant of the Tarot, and Tiphareth on the Tree of Life, both of which represent the higher, conscious mind’s ability to govern and work through the lower mind as the means of experiencing itself. In Egypt the Pentagram was used to symbolize the “underworld” (Duat), which was represented as being “below” as the “foundation” out of which the material world was formed and held in place, setting the atmosphere and circumstances necessary for the activity of the higher mind to self-express as a means of “knowing itself” through its own outer reflection. This idea symbolizes our “spiritual arising” as the birth of the sun (star) into daylight, which provides us with a formula as a process for consciously conducting our own “rebirth”. We regenerate ourselves as a higher divine being by ruling over the elements of Nature, which are controlled and directed by “thought” and “will” – bringing order to chaos – and using our higher mind to purify and perfect ourselves. Stars and star-systems have a powerful impact on us psychologically and bear specific influences based on their position as a co-ordinance, their placement within the heavens, and the constellations they serve as a part in.

Fractal Patterns and the Nature of Mental Offspring

What science has come to call “fractal patterns” can be thought of as a “parent pattern” that reproduces itself as offspring that form the same “type or kind” of pattern, on a smaller scale. This idea of a parent-pattern (mental model) regenerating itself to produce a similar pattern, is the same way that our inner essence acts to produce itself (same pattern) as an outer reality, which then sets the stage for experiencing ourselves, and the experiences we formed serve to grow and develop us through the unique variations formed. Our outer reality is generated by our inner nature as a holographic pattern that’s used as the means for shaping the outer to be of an equivalent nature as the inner, setting the stage for the activity we engage in that allows us to “know ourselves” through the experience created. The part (inner self) and the whole (outer reality formed by the self) are the “same thing” on different scales and levels of existence, necessary in order to know ourselves through the outer reality of our own making. The part propagates wholes, and the whole propagates equivalent parts, both of which are formed out of the same “essence”. This forms the basis for fractal mathematics that demonstrate the creative process of the holographic principle of self-creation.

The Holographic Principle of Regeneration

 The pentagram represents the holographic principle of how the higher mind acts on the lower plane of the material world to shape it using the same attributes and qualities that it possesses. It describes how the inner forms the outer as a reverse image, held together by a “medium” formed as an energetic lattice or structuring mechanism (electromagnetic field) that allows us to perpetuate our own image as a means of “perceiving ourselves” through a greater whole formed out of the same archetypal matrix. Our archetypal matrix contains all the ingredients necessary for shaping our character which expresses naturally to tell a particular type of story by living it. Our inner nature forms our basic character, and our outer reality forms a corresponding stage and atmosphere for us to act out our life-story as a generalized theme. We shape everything around us to resemble us because we’re viewing it “through” our mental paradigm. One of the reasons we have trouble comprehending this is because we’re always working simultaneously out of both a conscious and unconscious state, and we tend to think of our “self” as being our body and physical appearance, rather than being our “mind” as a “mental model” that’s formed out of all our life experiences synthesized into a single idea that plays out as a “theme”.

What we call the “principle of formation” operates through vibration, which contains both the pattern (idea) and a self-assembling mechanism that constructs the idea into a 3-dimensional form. The “pattern” exists as a coherent 3-dimensional model or cohesive idea that vibrates at a frequency that’s unique to the pattern, and acts on the outer field of the group mind to only “vibrate” and call forth in an active state what “matches it” and can be used to assemble the same idea on a greater, more inclusive level. This process works through sympathetic resonance, which means it happens in a completely automatic (natural) way directly below the level of awareness. Each part is ordered in the same way as the whole, and is comprised of the same qualities and characteristics. A mental model is an invisible field of an energetic structure that activates only correlated (polarized) elements in everything else, which means we only perceive in the outer world what is of the same nature and idea as our inner world of thought and imagination. The inner and outer are symmetrical images of each other, where one (inner) forms a metaphor that plays out naturally through a larger, ongoing theme born out of the same qualities to produce a consistent type of experience.

Symmetry and the Principle of Phi

What we call “Phi” in science isn’t a number, it’s a “relationship” formed as an accumulative process of “halving and doubling”, that forms the basis for manifesting through a process of self-regeneration. It’s a self-replicating rhythm of “cause and effect”, where different sequences become more exact at different rates, forming “values”. It demonstrates a self-replicating system of dividing in half as an outward projection of yourself, similar to positioning mirrors so that they face each other. You can tell the “whole” by looking at the “part”, because the part contains the same values as the whole, and therefore resembles it. The part and the whole vibrate at the same frequency and act to organize the same model as a thematic idea on a smaller and greater level. All our thoughts and feelings propagate naturally out of our mental paradigm as an expression of it, and our perception of reality reflects back to us our own thoughts about it, which we then “interpret” using the same model that birthed them as a means of making them “mean something”. We interpret activities and events to give them meaning based on how we mold them into our ongoing story and narrative about things. We then translate our experiences into memory by molding them back into the same memory-model that formed them as an outgrowth, evolving it based on any new information attained. The same idea is acted out in many different situations and with different people, while still forming the same type of experience.

As two ideas or fields of information combine they naturally form a third element. A new field as a variation is formed through how polarized aspects of the same idea interact. This process is represented by the 4 elements, which are really comprised of 2 primary elements that combine to produce a 3rd, which is then concentrated through an evolutionary process to form a 4th. These 2 primary elements, which are polar opposites of each other, combine to form a complementary 3rd. The 2 primary elements are Fire and Water, which combine to form “Air”, which is the subtle light-body (atmosphere formed out of astral light) of the Earth. The earth element, which represents the manifestation of the “3 into 1”, is formed as a combination of light, water, and air, synthesized into a single form.

What we have come to call “reality” is formed by the interaction and relationship of 2 minds (fields of correlated information), where only the qualities they share in common actively express in forming a ”joint experience” of a “shared reality”. The basis for reality as an outer awareness can be thought of as an interaction formed between and individual mind (part) and a much larger and more inclusive group or universal mind. The universal mind, also called the Aether or astral field of “living memory”, contains all the information as attributes and qualities that form characteristics in a “latent state” of decoherence, and only forms into a coherent state when being “observed” (mentally interacting with) by the individual mind.

A coherent state means the information contained becomes organized into a light construct that’s of the same frequency (3-dimensional form) of the individual mind forming a relationship with it. The field of decoherent light (exists as what looks like a cloudy mist) is neutral in nature, not possessing any “active” component of its own, and exists in a chaotic and random state of “probability”, which means it forms the basis for an infinite variety of possibilities as a “wave-form” that’s only shaped into one possibility based on the mind interacting with it. Our energy field (frequency) is constantly collapsing the outer field into a coherent construct that forms a mirror image of our mental model, where we each experience a reality of our own making. This can be readily recognized by simply observing that every person who’s a part of the same event or situation “experiences” it in a different way that’s unique to them based on their own perspective, life-story, and mental paradigm.

 You can know the unknown aspects of any equation and situation by how they exist in relation to the “known parts” of the same equation. The Golden Mean represents the relationship where the whole and the part simultaneously relate to each other in the same way. If you take a line as a segment and you divide it into 3 equal parts (thirds), and you combine 2 of the parts to form a larger segment, each part is still “proportionately” the same. The 2/3 represent Phi, symbolized as a circle with a line dividing it in half, and the Golden Mean represents the remaining 1/3. All growth comes by regenerating ourselves to form an equivalent outer form that mirrors back to us our own mental creation as the means for experiencing ourselves and shaping ourselves by way of our own self-produced experiences. Phi represents the relationship formed as an accumulative process, where we combine consistently with the same essence as qualities in everything else to produce a unique variation of the same idea. We repeat this process indefinitely as a means of consistently producing new experiences of ourselves, which are then integrated back into our mental model, upgrading and evolving it to a more expanded and inclusive form of the same overall idea.

The pentagram represents the elements being held in perfect (symmetrical) balance as an “ideal”. 1+1=2 as a multiplication of 1, which then reproduces by doubling – 2+2=4, 4+4=8, 8+8=16 and so on – which is the process of cellular growth (mitosis), where one cell regenerates itself billions of times, each time differentiating to perform a specialized function in the greater whole of which it’s a part. It does this by using a “spatial map” as a hologram (body of synchronized information to form a system) that’s an invisible template used as a form of blueprint for intricately constructing a material replica of itself. Our soul exists as a field of concentrated memory acquired through an accumulative process of self-regeneration that’s “imprinted” in and on the Pineal gland, known as the “seat of the soul”, as a hologram or coherent field of crystallized memory (light) that acts not only as the “builders plan” for the body and personality, but also for the reality emanated through the brain and nervous system of the body. The subtle body, also called our etheric-double or astral body, exists and functions systematically through 10 primary principles, represented by the concept of the “Tree of Life” as 10 centers (spheres), 3 outside the body that encase the other 7, which form an energetic circuit as an axis for consciousness to function within the body. The 3 principle aspects of the mind that contain the other 7 within it, can be thought of as the Supernal or Superconscious that never enters into it’s own physical formation and always resides on the outer periphery formed by the 6 principles of the Formative Plane (2 Triads of the Conscious and Subconscious), which coalesce and manifest in the 7th.

Becoming Whole

All growth towards perfection comes as “ideal proportions”, where 2 combine to form a third as a cohesion of shared qualities. The large part is identical proportionately to the smaller part in terms of the properties that make up their constitution. We can understand how polarized planes function by realizing the upper plane is the whole and the lower plane is the “part” (body) located within the whole, where we live and experience ourselves within the reality of our own making. You can recognize your own “repressed nature” and the parts of your self that you’ve “disowned” by how they form a natural part of your outer reality and the relationship you form with them as a “reaction”. We disown, deny having, and refuse to express the parts of our us that have been judged as being bad or wrong by others. As we were judged for having certain traits, we also came to judge ourselves in the same way, where we refused to express them and denied having them as a result. Yet these repressed parts of our own nature are hidden within our subconscious mind and still form a natural part of our perception of the outer world. As we perceive them in others or as playing out in a situation, we form a reaction to them using the same judgment. The basis of what we call spiritual or psychological healing comes by recognizing the disowned parts of ourselves and using our rational mind of reasoning to find a way to bring them into expression in an appropriate and beneficial way.

Quintessence and the Process of Self-Perfection and Creation

The way to work consciously in being able to create our own experiences and develop our character in an intentional and deliberate way, is laid out for us through a model of complementary aspects called “vices and virtues”. Vices can be thought of as weaknesses and character flaws that form addictions and are destructive in nature, and virtues are strengths that empower us and provide us with the means for transforming weaknesses into strengths. We can act on ourselves to evolve ourselves to a higher and more divine nature by first recognizing what our weaknesses are and then intentionally employing the opposite trait as a means of transforming them. The other system that’s been laid out for us to use as a psychological means for developing ourselves to be of a more “divine nature” is the archetypes of the Zodiac (our archetypal matrix), and the pantheon of the gods of mythology. These systems portray an assortment of characters (gods) whose nature is formed out of a dynamic combination of qualities and characteristics that express to form natural behaviors as a way of functioning that play out naturally in telling a particular type of story as a way of creating ourselves through our ability to express divine qualities.

When we use divine, god-like qualities to shape ourselves through the experiences created while expressing them, we shape ourselves to be god-like and divine in nature. This comes by taking a quality as a way of being and concentrating on expressing it in the best and most accurate way you can. For example, you can choose a state of “calm”, and embody that quality as a “state of mind” and way of being where, no matter what situation you’re in as you go through your day, you use it to practice remaining cool, calm, and collected. No matter what’s going on around you or what’s being projected towards you, you stay focused and cultivate a sense of inner calm in relation to it. If you start reacting or taking on the attitude and emotions being actively expressed by others around you, catch yourself, realize what’s happening, and intentionally work within yourself to induce a state of peace and inner calm.

Take an attitude of developing skill in managing your own state of mind, and what you’ll realize pretty early into it is that it produces a similar affect on everything around you. By keeping yourself calm and relaxed you’ll tend to cause everyone else to feel calm in your presence. If volatile emotions are being expressed by someone near you, you can “neutralize” their emotions by simply not taking them on and allowing them to affect you, where, instead of amplifying them, you act to “mirror them back” to the person expressing them. This same process works with any quality, which is formed as a mental state, such as excitement and enthusiasm, joy and happiness, understanding and exercising compassion, feeling sad and discouraged, and so on. Pick a quality as a characteristic, and practice being that way until you perfect it within your own being. Cultivate it until you can induce it willfully as a means of determining and managing your own state of mind and creating new and more desirable experiences of yourself. As you consistently practice being a certain way, you begin acquiring new experiences which, when built up over time and accumulated in a consistent fashion become a natural part of your own character.

Modeling & Imitating – Becoming Like Another

We’re all born into the world as children with the natural ability to create ourselves through imitating and pretending to be like our favorite characters and super heroes, but as we mature, this gets taught out of us. If you’re not quite sure how to “be” a certain way, or what you need to do with your physiology as a means of embodying certain qualities, you can find someone who naturally displays the qualities you want to cultivate, and you can start by studying them to see how it is they do whatever they’re doing. For example, if you want to cultivate “confidence”, find someone you know that exudes an air of confidence, and ask yourself what are they doing that makes them appear confident? Notice how they hold their body, what their posture is, gestures, facial expression, tone and rhythm of their voice when they speak, how they talk, and how they conduct themselves as a normal way of being. Once you illicit the formula of behaviors, practice being that way yourself. Think of this in the same way you did when you were a kid and you were playing with friends by imitating your favorite movie characters.

As you begin embodying certain traits and qualities notice how it makes you “feel”. Keep working to perfect the behavior by adjusting what you’re doing until it makes you feel the way you want to feel. Once you get it just the way you want it, practice being that way repeatedly until it starts becoming natural and you develop it into a habit. Any behavior practiced consistently for a period of four to six weeks, becomes built into the muscle as memory, where you start doing it as your natural way of being. Also, keep in mind as you begin practicing new postures and ways of being that at first it’s going to feel awkward and unnatural. This is simply due to the fact that you haven’t become familiar with it and developed it into a habit yet. All of what we call ‘natural behaviors’ were formed through our conditioning as kids where we were trained by others around us to imitate the same character traits and behaviors being utilized by everyone who was a part of our family dynamic. Think of transformation as a form of “self-conditioning” where you start by forming a vision of yourself as what you consider to be the best version of yourself as your highest “ideal”. You can only “create” in an intentional manner when you have a vision and well-formed idea of what it is you’re creating. So you want to start by forming a vision of yourself as your highest possibility, and then ask yourself what new qualities you’ll need to develop in yourself in order to be that way, and what character flaws or weaknesses you need to transform by employing their complementary opposite as a virtue.

The Astral Plane of the Aether, The Akashic Field of Cosmic Memory, and the Yetzirah World of Formation

What we call the spiritual world is comprised of invisible forces of a highly intelligent nature that act through universal laws to form what we experience as “reality”. In order to understand how invisible forces behave and operate in performing a “creative process” we have to use a model as a means of conceptualizing them. Some people can get hung up on this because they mistake the concept or material model being used for the forces themselves, instead of maintaining the awareness that the model is used merely as a means of understanding how something works, because understanding is the prerequisite to utilizing these forces in being able to use them to create in a conscious manner. Universal laws form the very foundation for the “fabric of reality”, which means they’re “inherent” in every single aspect of reality, no matter what level or scale we’re examining or contemplating.

As many of you may know from reading my articles on spiritual sciences, I’m not going to try to tell you “what to think”, but rather approach this in a way that’s designed to teach you “how to think”. I’m not going to approach this from the perspective of ancient texts or established bodies of esoteric knowledge handed down to us by previous masters, but rather by describing them from a purely scientific perspective based on laws and principles. I’m going to “tie ideas together” rather than go into an in-depth explanation of each aspect that plays a part in forming a greater idea. This will provide you with the means necessary to investigate the different ideas on your own, so you can develop them in whatever way makes the most sense to you. We can only use what we first understand, so my only intent in the scope of this article is to shape a model that will facilitate a basic understanding of what the Astral Plane of Light is, what the difference between the Astral, etheric, and Akasha Fields are, and how to relate these ideas to the conscious and subconscious aspects of your own mind that you’re utilizing constantly in creating how you experience reality.

I’m going to use the model demonstrated in the Kabbalah Tree of Life to illustrate this because it provides a great model for understanding how our own mind works while also providing the tools necessary to begin using it in a more profound and precise way. For those of you who are not familiar with spiritual sciences, the Kabbalah, Tarot, Gematria, Sacred Geometry, and Planetary Archetypes of Astrology, all form different aspects of the same body of knowledge, where one can be used as a means of interpreting the other intuitively using the Law of Correspondences and Analogy. What we now call Quantum Physics is a modern day version of what used to be called Spiritual or Sacred Sciences, and is one of the few sciences that not only keeps the mind fully intact as a fundamental part of our material reality, but keeps it in the lead role in terms of what creates, maintains, and determines what we experience as reality. 

Fundamental Principles of the Mind and Reality

What’s called Universal Laws are what forms the very basis for constructing, holding together, and animating the physical world. There are seven basic universal laws, one of which is the “Law of Polarity”, which is where a single entity divides from itself to form twin aspects (represented by a triangle) that are polar opposites of each other. The interaction of these complementary opposites forms the basis for what we call “space-time” as a spatial construct that forms a “dimension”. One consolidated aspect of the mind regenerates itself to form a duplicate of itself as a mirror image that allows it to “perceive itself as another” and as a part of a greater whole. This is necessary as the means for “experiencing” itself as something specific. It divides in half forming into complementary aspects as a positive (masculine) and negative (feminine) part that appears separated and set apart from each other, while also forming the basis for a natural interaction that forms a joint experience of a shared reality. Whenever two things are combined, they give rise to a third. This idea is represented by the motif of a husband, wife, and child, where a man and woman form sexual union (combine energetically) to produce an offspring that’s a combination of both their traits in varying degrees, formed into a unique individual.

The Dyad

Even though the mind (soul) forms itself into two complementary opposites that we have come to call the conscious and subconscious, which are necessary as the means of creating, it still maintains itself as a whole or single entity which contains both complementary aspects “within it”. This can be understood by realizing that every person, man or woman, has both a masculine and feminine aspect to their nature, and create themselves and their life through the relationship formed between the conscious and subconscious aspects of their mind. These two aspects of the mind also directly correlate with the left and right hemispheres of the brain, which form different aspects of the same perception and work in tandem to create our experiences. This higher, single aspect of the mind, also called the “superconscious” or “universal soul” is formed out of what you can think of as an “archetypal matrix”. This matrix is formed out of different aspects of universal attributes, qualities, and characteristics that make-up our soul’s essence as our inner nature and moral character. Each aspect has been developed to different degrees and potencies, and as we move through various life experiences it requires us to use different parts of our character which are then developed in different ways based on how we go through these experiences.

This idea forms what we call “3 aspects of One essence” (Trinity or Triad), where a single reality (light formation) is formed and maintained through the interaction of complementary opposites, which comes as conscious energy that spins in a spiraling motion as it moves perpetually between opposite poles of the same frequency, forming an electromagnetic field. This is the basis for “vibration” which forms as a quivering, pulsating movement of electromagnetic energy that forms an “idea” (pattern) into a spatial, 4-dimensional luminescent object. Energy moves in spirals, forming what we call an electromagnetic field, where a concentrated beam of light is split in two and one pushes away while the other pulls together, forming a spiral that’s never able to reconcile. This takes a single point and forms it into spatial shape that expands and contracts simultaneously creating “space” as the distance between them, while also moving back and forth in a rhythmic motion between two magnetically opposite poles (North and South, positive and negative). This forms what’s now called “particle-wave duality”, which is also commonly described through the model of energetic entanglement and superposition. This is a “fundamental” principle, which means it’s not only inherent in the very basis of what we perceive as reality, but in the “invisible field” where light is drawn forth (out of nothing) and used to build physical forms. It’s a basic function of “invisible forces” that accompany and maintain the physical world as the “medium” through which energy exists, propagates, and interacts as correlated frequencies.

Practical Understanding Using your own Mind

A real easy way to understand what astral light is and how it works to make something out of nothing, is by using your own imagination. This field of Astral Light can most easily be described as the “stuff of your mind” that you use every time you think, imagine, or visualize something. Take a moment to sit quietly, clear your mind of chatter, relax, and picture a “flower” (notice that a generic shape of a flower is formed). “The flower is purple, with soft velvety petals and a white center that’s shaped like a star”. Notice that as I say a word or use attributes to describe it, you form the image in your mind and then begin developing it by continuing to think about it. This “image” formed within your mind is made out of “astral light” (also called Primordial Substance). This light originates as a gas-like liquid that’s similar to nebula (in outer space) and has an almost ghost-like quality that starts off a neutral color (greyish) and then comes alive when you start enhancing it with attributes that give it distinct qualities. This same process and substance is what forms all your memories. Clear your mind again, and this time picture yourself coming home and walking in your front door, as you walk in what do you see? Notice that you can picture the rooms of your house perfectly in what seems like a transparent or translucent image. This transparent image appears in a similar way to a reflection on glass or a shiny object. Notice that the gas-like liquid substance you use to form these images comes out of “nowhere” and is formed into a complex image instantaneously. This is the same substance that you use to form thoughts into visual imagery and to replay memories over and over in your mind, changing them slightly every time you recall them.

The Fundamental Principle of “Will”  

What’s called the “Great Work” of alchemy, which involves acquiring an understanding of your own mind and soul to become “self-made”, constitutes being able to control the Astral Plane through the mental attribute of “will” which operates through the “imagination”. Each aspect of our 3-fold mind, regenerates as a single part with 3 aspects of its own that determine how it functions in performing a specialized function in creating, maintaining, and evolving an even greater whole. The higher aspect of the superconscious forms and contains the “seed”, formed out of principles in a latent state of potential, for the entire “life-cycle” of an individual that’s brought into formation (constructed out of vivified essence) on the lower planes as the “astral body”. The term “body” isn’t referring to our physical body alone, but to the entire reality our body is formed within as a central point of reference. This idea is represented by the Monad as a dot within a greater circle, by an egg with a yolk at the center, and a sphere spinning on an axis.

Each aspect of our mind exists on a different level and scale associated with that level and has 3 aspects that form a single operation in creating and maintaining that “level and scale”. This idea can be thought of as “fields that exist within greater fields” of a similar frequency, where smaller fields propagate out of larger ones and then interact with those fields as a means of “creating” material constructs, which can more appropriately be called “mental constructs”, because what we call the material world is being shaped by our mind through our ability to “perceive it”. This idea can also be thought of as a hierarchical structure of parallel planes (also called kingdoms) where the highest one contains the whole lower one within it, and each lower plane propagates out of the upper one as it’s offspring.

Tetrad Vesica Piscis

These hierarchical planes are also polarized with each other, where all movement, whether between a higher (invisible) and lower (visible) plane, or as an inner and outer aspect of the same plane function through polarity as an interaction with itself, where both planes are outgrowths of the same frequency (patterns). This is illustrated in the axiom, “as above, so below, and as below, so above, in the miraculous working of the one thing”. The lower plane of material reality is formed as a “reflection” and “projection” of the plane directly above it. This principle is illustrated in the geometric model of the “Tetrad”, as the same principle that first forms the Dyad as polar opposites on the same plane, and then regenerates as polar opposites on a higher (inner) and lower (outer) plane as mirror images of each other. In both cases it’s the same principle operating in forming what appears to us as a “single reality”.

All material objects are accompanied by an invisible field of energy that surrounds and encases it while also permeating and inhabiting it. This invisible field is what’s often referred to as an “aura” and when perceived intuitively or captured with a kirlian camera, appears as vitalized essence that’s similar to “nebula” and naturally displays the color associated with the active part of a frequency being displayed as a “mental state”. This phenomenon can also be thought of as electrified plasma that acts to organize light-essence into a gaseous, liquid-like formation that’s in a constant state of flux and flow as an evolutionary process of becoming. It takes on a shimmering luster that fluctuates moment by moment based on the state of mind which is being formed through a constant energy exchange with everything around it. This same principle of an invisible field coupled with a material object, is referred to nowadays as dark energy, dark matter, anti-particles, virtual twin particles, and is also what forms the “phantom effect” of DNA, where a field is emitted that contains the energetic (invisible) structure that the DNA is the genetic seed for in its mature and fully developed state. It’s this field that acts as the spatial map to order (select), assemble, and animate a material form that’s a mirror image of it.

Particles come “into existence” out of “nowhere” (quantum plenum or vacuum), and always come as polarized pairs called “twins”. In spiritual allegories, which always use symbolic language to illustrate spiritual principles, this idea is represented in stories about twin brothers or sisters, or as brother and sister (same genetic origin) who are also husband and wife who procreate offspring as their unification. One of the main mistakes made by those trying to understand the nature of the aether or astral plane and what makes it different from what’s called the Akashic plane, is that they don’t understand that all energy and planes of existence, no exceptions, are always “polarized” and have an upper and lower level that interact with each other in producing a third level as their unification. This principle also operates within the same level or plane (linear) as an inner and outer that combine to form a single reality as a coherent field of light. The Astral plane is divided into two levels as an upper and lower, that together form a “range” of vibration as a correlated frequency. The higher and more refined the vibration, the more “information” it contains, which means the higher level of the Akasha, associated with the higher conscious mind, contains all the information inherent in the lower plane, which it acts to inform, hold together in a cohesive manner, and facilitate all the activity of the lower plane as its administrator and director.

The Akasha of the Conscious Mind and the Astral Light of the Subconscious

The three aspects of the mind, each of which function on a different, yet parallel and cohesive level of the same mind, are called the Superconscious, Conscious, and subconscious, and combine on a fourth level as a coherent living field of consciousness in material form. If we look at the different functions of each aspect of the mind we can get a good idea of what the fundamental difference is in terms of understanding how the Astral Plane operates. Astral light is what I refer to as the “substance of the mind” that exists as a field or “medium” that transmits vibrating patterns as mental impressions (thoughts and memories) that don’t contain physical properties and are of a more subtle and refined nature. This is the plane where will, thought, and feelings are imprinted, projected and fluently transmitted, or more accurately stated, “infuse” and populate this plane, being present everywhere within it at the same time as a frequency or information as a wave-form, and is only “accessible” by those beings of a similar frequency, classification, and species.

The faculty of the mind used to create within this magnetic field is the imagination. The astral plane is called the “picture gallery of memory” because it absorbs, crystallizes, and holds thoughts formed as pictures, and is what makes a permanent record of all our actions as our soul’s memory. This field not only absorbs and records thought as memory, it also reflects the picture-memory back to us as an equivalent outer construct of light (reality) that allows us to experience the reality of our own thoughts. This is the most fundamental level of “karma”, which comes as the reconstitution of our own collective memory attained over a vast amount of time to form a coherent field of light, where we continue to “experience” our own creation, born out of our basic nature. All our thoughts, feelings, and natural behaviors are formed and evolve naturally out of our mental paradigm, which vibrates at a frequency unique to us, and is what allows each of us to experience the reality of our own making.

Our Higher and Lower Nature

All energy that’s organized into patterns of memory runs in “currents” that spontaneously propagate throughout the astral field and acts as a blind force that drives thoughts and mental processes in an unconscious and automatic way. This lower level of the subconscious is associated with the astral plane of the Earth and contains the memory of “instinct” and thoughtforms produced by humans out of an unconscious, emotional state. Instinct is formed as cosmic memory (patterns of activity) that’s only accessible to the species, type, and class that the memory pertains to and acts to inform with natural behaviors. This is very important to understand, because as humans we can only access, conceive, and utilize information that’s correlated to our mental paradigm, level of development, maturity, and ability to comprehend it intelligently. On the lower level of the astral plane, which we can think of as the girdle of the Earth’s atmosphere that forms the “collective unconscious”, we tend to live out of a primarily “reactive state”, driven by our emotions, where we function by repeating the same attitudes, mindset, and tendencies that we were conditioned with and that come as “natural behaviors” that are automatic in nature.

The higher level of this same polarized field is the level referred to as the Akasha, or Akashic Plane, and pertains only to “humans” as a species and classification. This is because it’s governed by the conscious mind, which is creative and self-aware, and “creates” by thinking, reasoning, and making decisions. This is the realm of “archetypes and ideals” (gods of mythology) that the conscious mind uses to fashion ideas it wants to experience in the form of memory, that it then reflects into its own subconscious as a means of directing it in what to create. This is the “creative level” of the higher mind as opposed to the “automated level” of animal instinct. The memory formed and maintained as a permanent record on this level is formed by us as our own creation born out of masterful and creative use of our own imagination. This is why it’s called the “Book of Life” or “Hall of Records” formed as an eternal and permanent record of our  conscious, intentional creations made using our will.

Superposition, Energetic Entanglement, and Interference Patterns

On the upper strata of the Astral plane two or more objects (states) may occupy the same space without interfering with each other or losing their definition. On the lower level everything is formed and transformed through combinations, where we tune into and take on the ideas and opinions of others and use them as our own, without having created them. The upper Triad is represented by primary colors, while the lower Triad is formed as complementary colors produced by combining primaries. All activities of the lower mind are formed through a process of “cause and effect”, where you’re stimulated by an outside force of some kind that instantly shifts your state of mind causing you to respond in an automatic way. Our higher mind is “causal in nature” and produces the lower reality as an “effect” or reflection of its own thoughts about itself. On the subtle plane objects can readily change their outer appearance while their inner nature remains the same. This is the part of us that incarnates into different bodies while our inner core as our character remains the same (eternal) in each incarnation. This is the level of our “Higher Self” as our “Evolutionary Ego”, which creates, interacts, and witnesses the lower plane of the unconscious mind without ever “entering into it” and becoming it in nature.

The “same idea” (archetype) can present itself in an infinite number of ways and is why the gods of mythology were known to “shape-shift” or morph into the form correlated to the persons paradigm they were communicating with. On this level symbols, emblems, and signals are not arbitrary conventions of universal forces, but are “living beings” that have an independent existence of their own outside of a material body. This is why symbols and metaphors are used to explain and describe it. Nothing is fixed or crystallized on this plane and it’s always in the process of evolving into infinite variations of the same metaphorical idea. This is what forms the inner nature and character of a person incarnate in a physical body and is what ascends the body after death and reincarnates into another body. Our soul’s collective memory is accumulated through numerous incarnations and stages of development, and between lives is synthesized into a “single image” (paradigm) that forms the “karmic seed” for the next incarnation.

Wave Interference

Our eternal soul grows and evolves itself by forming new combinations that develop new aspects of our character that are built up in an accumulative fashion and integrated into our existing memory to form a coherent whole as a vibratory frequency, called our soul’s “signature frequency”. In ancient Egypt this idea was represented by the Ankh, which was programmed with the collective memory of the soul and vibrated with the soul’s frequency, which formed the “key” necessary for entering the portal to higher dimensions. For those of you who are interested in “teleportation” currently being developed through quantum physics, you’ll realize this isn’t about “de-materializing our molecular structure”, transporting it to a distant location and then re-materializing it using the same substance, it’s about capturing the “signature frequency” of our “soul” (inner nature) and transmitting that to a different location (within the greater field), where it acts naturally to “reconstruct itself” into the same body based on “memory” as a ”time line” by drawing “essence” out of thin air (the atmosphere) that’s used to build the same physical body and outer appearance. It’s our mental state formed out of memory of our own making that forms our vibratory frequency, which also has a self-assembling mechanism inherent in it that operates through “resonance”.   

The higher level of the mind is holistic and singular in nature, and takes all experience accumulated during a particular lifetime and synthesizes it back into a single whole where it acts to evolve it. This is the level of higher consciousness, creativity, and individuality that’s independent of the lower plane, and is what acts to create the lower plane as a means of experiencing itself through its own mental construct. It’s on this level of the mind where when we concentrate on a symbolic idea a whole series of correlated ideas proliferate from it as possibilities for the same basic idea.

This is what forms the “plenum” (also called the void or vacuum) out of which polarized particles “pop into existence” with a “life-span”, and then disappear again, or transform by annihilating each other. The plane that we evolved the “many worlds theory” out of and the concept of multiple dimensions as the plane of “superposition”. This higher region is represented in esoteric sciences by the “sun”, and the lower plane of material reality and instinct by the “moon”, which doesn’t generate light of it’s own, but merely glows with the reflection of the sun’s light. On the Tree of Life the sphere of the Sun is Tiphareth, also called Ruach (Conscious Mind or Higher Self), which sits directly above Yesod, the sphere of the moon, and projects the image formed in the imagination into the lower, subconscious mind of Yesod, which represents our “etheric double”, used as the energetic blueprint for constructing the outer world of light.

Astral Light acts as a medium and substance of thought and vibration. As we concentrate on an idea we form an image of it mentally and vitalize it with sensation, causing it to begin vibrating at the frequency associated with the idea, and its vibratory signature is impressed on and in the astral light, where they’re incorporated into our astral body and built into our outer perception as an experience. While the outer situation or circumstances may vary considerably that we combine an idea with, the experience produced using it remains consistent. All ideas impressed in this astral medium are metaphorical in nature and act to bring us a particular type of experience that follows a distinct type of theme. Here we only design the material construct for bringing us a “particular type of experience” – the material form itself isn’t important or even significant, only the experience it serves to provide us with.

This plane is also called “Amenti” – Halls of Amenti – where the upper world forms the substrate for the underworld as an energetic matrix for ordering, organizing, and maintaining the physical world of effect. In ancient texts this is what’s referred to as the “underworld”, which is often represented by a rectangular foundation that has a series of wavy-lines running through it, symbolizing a frequency that functions as a current, on top of which (or out of which) the physical world of activity (Assiah) takes place. The upper is reflected downward (Tetrad) as a reverse image that forms the “underlying reality” out of which the material world is emanated. This is not referring to the “hell” of Christian mythology, but rather the etheric-double used as a form of blueprint and energetic field of organized information for ordering and assembling the material world as a vehicle for the soul to express and have its being as a way of experiencing itself. All of our experiences are simultaneously formed into a single memory as a holistic idea. This higher level of astral light is represented by “fire”, which is the element of “will” and the “spark” that electrifies plasma causing it to form.

The physical body and subconscious (Nephesh) is grounded in astral light in much the same way the body is grounded in matter. It’s the source of instinct and the “storehouse of race memory”, self-preservation, preditory lusts, and all emotional impulses that drive unconscious behaviors. The only memory contained permanently in the lower region of the Earth’s atmosphere is what’s born out of unconscious impulses driven by emotion that lacks creativity and individuality. This is the source of information and memory accessed through mediumship and channeling, attained by letting their mind go blank (subduing their conscious mind) while allowing instinctual forces, the astral remnants of those already deceased, or lost souls (suicides and murder) to inhabit their mind and use their will to have a “voice”. This is self-evident by the simple fact that all information supposedly “channeled” by a medium is only what has already been created and exists as a memory, and is never unique, novel, or inventive in nature.

The astral field of the subconscious forms a dynamic stream of thought, memory, and tendencies that reside below the level conscious awareness as a receptacle of instinct, race memory, and complexes formed out of internal conflict. It’s the strata of habit and automated processes conducted out of memory inherent in the collective unconscious, and “thinks” by replaying the same memories and internal processes over and over in a redundant and habitual manner, repeating more of the same kind and type of experiences in the present as the past. Our lower mind functions primarily out of a belief-system formed out of memory of various kinds, whether we were taught, watched and heard, or that came from actual experience. The Akasha of the higher mind is the aspect that “creates” memory that is then projected into the subconscious in the form of a picture or scene, which it uses in the same way it uses the memory of instinct. This level is the “designer”, producer, director, and audience of the lower level of reality. It creates “itself” not through animal instinct or conditioning, but through the “experiences” it attains through the physical forms it acts to construct. It’s not the form, but the one that inhabits and expresses through the form as a means of knowing who it is by way of the reality formed out of its own thoughts.

The Difference between the Personality of Our Lower Nature and Identity Formed by Our Higher Nature

All ideas have to be formed into a working concept in order to understand them in the practical sense, so in order to comprehend this idea we have to form a clear understanding of our Triune nature, and how the different aspects of our mind operate on different levels or planes to perform different functions in creating the same overall, unified reality. We all have what we call 3 aspects of our mind and self (soul) that manifest in the fourth element of our material body. This idea is what’s also called the “3 in 1 Law”, which is 3 aspects that form One Essence, also known as the Triad or Trinity, often represented as a person with 3 heads and faces on a single body. One person is comprised of three fundamental aspects that exist on higher and lower levels of the same continuum or Astral Sheath, which can be thought of as a “scale” (gradation) that moves between a high and low vibration, much like the musical scale and light spectrum. This idea is also represented by the 4 states of matter, which is a process of coagulating invisible forces to form a solid body. This is a fundamental process of formation that makes an invisible force visible through an outer image formed out of astral light, and is the same process we use internally to shape an invisible idea into an image within the faculty of our imagination. The 4 states of matter are different stages in the development of a solid form, which are electrified (charged) plasma, gaseous, liquid, and solid. Again, these aren’t 4 different things, but 4 “states” as phases in developing the same thing. This is how nothing becomes something.

These are different “states” of the same thing, which function as a “frequency”. These states also represent the 4 aspects of the self, known as the Superconscious, conscious, subconscious, and physical body. Our Superconscious can also be thought of as our universal self (archetypal matrix), our conscious mind our “evolving ego” or Higher Self, and our subconscious our “personal ego”, or lower self. The term “ego” is synonymous with “identity”, which is the “I” and “I Am”, which can be more accurately stated as “I am becoming”, because the soul is never fixed or finished but is in a constant state of self-development through natural growth cycles and is “self-creating” and eternal in nature. Our lower self, which is comparable to our subconscious and is also what’s called the consciousness of our body, is “non-creative” in terms of being able to “create itself”, and is governed by the natural processes associated with the animal kingdom, and is primarily driven by instinct which comes as emotional impulses that form reactive behaviors.

While we’re in our physical existence, we typically only work with the two lower aspects of ourselves in terms of our daily life, which are the conscious and subconscious aspects of our mind. This is because the range of vibration that flows in a descending and ascending motion between higher and lower planes requires a “medium” or middle point (range of vibration) to move through that serves as a “transducer” for stepping-down the higher vibration and translating into a lower frequency where it can be conceived by the lower aspect of the subconscious. The movement of conscious energy between higher and lower planes comes through “resonance” as “sympathetic induction”, and the middle mind vibrates at a “range” that can reach the lower vibration (level) of the higher plane in order to “draw in” the energy of that plane, assimilate and transmute it, and then project it into the highest level of the lower mind, where it can be conceived through a form of transmission or communication. While in our physical body, governed by our subconscious, we’re “unaware” of our higher mind and our ability to create ourselves using our higher mind, and we live primarily out of the story that emerges from our formative conditioning. While manifest in our physical body we lose all “memory” of who we truly are in terms of our eternal soul and higher, creative mind, and come to believe that we are our body and exist as a form of intelligent animal.

While in the plane of formation (incarnate in a body) our conscious and subconscious are polarized aspects of each other and work in unity to produce what we perceive as our outer world and reality. Our conscious mind is our masculine-positive aspect and our subconscious is our feminine-negative aspect of the “same mind”. These two operate in polarity with other as complementary opposites on both the same plane, as an “inner and outer”, and as an interaction between higher and lower planes. On the higher plane of the conscious mind, it draws in the archetypal ideas from the higher plane of the superconscious, assimilates them into its existing identity, while simultaneously projecting them into the lower plane as “pictures” that act to “seed” the subconscious with new ideas. The conscious mind forms an idea into an image comprised of astral light (primordial matter) and introduces it into the etheric body of the lower self, which is a more concentrated and denser form of astral light that takes on a more fluid-like form and motion. The Higher Self is what originally forms and projects the etheric double used to inform the lower self, and then uses it as the means of regulating its own evolution by introducing memory that serve as metaphorical themes that are injected into the lower mind where they function in the same way memory does.

The Two Aspects of Our Lower Nature

While many people have been taught and formed a belief that our “conscious mind” is the aspect of our material mind that’s self-aware and is what perceives the outer world being formed and maintained by our subconscious, this is merely an “aspect” of our true conscious mind that’s contained “within” our subconscious, where it’s birthed fully within the material plane through a natural process of growth and development. Our true conscious mind exists outside of the material plane on a higher or greater level, and just as the conscious aspect of our mind is contained within our subconscious, the entire lower plane of what we call “reality” is “contained within” our higher conscious mind, which is the aspect of us that’s creating and maintaining it. This idea is symbolized through the Yin-Yang symbol, where the masculine contains an aspect of the feminine within it, and the feminine contains an aspect of the masculine within it, and together they form a greater whole as a unification or coherent state. This idea is also represented in the concept of the “Madonna (Mother) who births a male child (Son)”, where the mother is also a virgin, which simply means that the child was conceived from a higher (spiritual) plane and level of consciousness, rather than a product of the material plane. This is giving us a clue to the fact that our conscious mind is not of this plane and is actually an aspect of our “higher self”, which is also called the “Lord” (Tiphareth of the Kabbalah) and is ultimately our “savior”.

The lower self of our subconscious is also referred to as our animal-nature, which is born into the world as a product of our genetic make-up where we’re naturally imbued with a “personality”. Our subconscious is also what’s referred to as the “group mind” of the “collective Unconscious” where we exist as a “species” where the only thing that sets us apart from each other and makes us unique is our personality. This is easy to understand when you simply look at dogs, for example, where all dogs are dog-like and display the same type of general behaviors and work through a “pack mentality” where they function as a single unit, yet each also has their own personality and unique way of doing the same behaviors. Our personality is something we’re born with and it comes in a completely natural fashion. Most of our natural behaviors and idiosyncrasies, like our physical appearance, stems from our genetic make-up where we inherent similar tendencies from our parents and ancestors as inherent or group memory.  It’s not something we create intentionally but comes in an automatic and spontaneous way where we don’t have to think about it or make a decision about how we’re going to be.

Etheric Double

We’re born exclusively into our subconscious mind with a pre-formed personality, and as we begin growing and maturing, our conscious mind begins slowly developing. It’s an aspect of us that starts off in a latent and potential state and gradually becomes more active and prominent as we develop and mature. Our conscious mind starts becoming active around the age of 6 or 7, which is when we begin “thinking”, developing ideas in our imagination, and problem solving. At around 12 to 14 years, our conscious mind starts becoming even more prominent where we begin thinking for ourselves, forming our own ideas about things that are different from our parents, and we start “coming into ourselves” in terms of forming our “identity”. We do this by trying on all kinds of styles, ideas, and ways of being to see how they feel. We begin forming an image ourselves as being different from our parents and siblings, and we begin making our own decisions for ourselves that lead us into all kinds of new situations and experiences. As we begin having new experiences that came from our own decisions, we sense ourselves through our experiences by how we identify with them and begin shaping ourselves accordingly. Our identity begins naturally taking shape out of our personality in a completely harmonious and congruent way.

In the energetic sense, our higher self is formed of astral light in its gaseous state, and our lower self is comprised of the same light in a more concentrated form of astral light that moves and morphs more like a fluid that’s very malleable. The Higher Self is what originally forms and projects the etheric-double of the lower self as a form of blueprint for constructing an equivalent material reality, and then acts to regulate and evolve it by creating “thought-forms” that represent metaphorical themes that work in the same way “memory” does. If you simply observe the nature of your thoughts compared to your actual memories, you’ll realize that on the inner planes of your mind they appear the same way. This is because they’re both created the same way in our imagination. Our memories don’t just come or form by themselves, we actually create our memories by how we think about the events of our life that were emotionally impacting to form them into a story that takes shape through the meaning we gave them. While the subconscious operates almost exclusively out of memory in the same way animals’ function through instinct, it doesn’t have the ability to “create” its own memory and has to be given memory as the means of creating new types of experiences. Memory is created as a function of the higher mind which uses it as the means for directing the subconscious in an automatic fashion. Our higher conscious creates itself by forming memories of itself that it gives to the subconscious as a means of experiencing itself.

3 selves

The lower self absorbs the soul memory being projected into it by the higher self, which is “reflected within” as an “inner vision” or dream-like image, that’s then gestated by building it into its current mental model, which is formed out of synthesized memory, modifying it to be a natural and harmonious part of its outer perception of reality. Once it can be perceived as a natural part of our reality we can form an experience of it, and it becomes a catalyst for producing a whole series of correlated experiences which propagate naturally out of it, setting a new phase or stage of development into motion. The subconscious of our body is our lower, animal soul which is not creative in the sense of being able to generate a “new idea” as an imaginary thought process, yet is the aspect of our mind that builds the thought into a corresponding material formation through our ability to “perceive it” within the outer world of our environment. This is the aspect of our mind that’s a part of the “group mind” of mass consciousness where all our activities are emotionally driven through natural inclinations. It functions out of memory as instinct, prompted by emotional impulses, and maintains a consistent perception of reality out of memory formed into habits.

Our personality is formed out of our genetic memory that’s not only comprised of a collective group of qualities that we share in common with all our family members that cause us to form the same natural behaviors, moods, and activities, but also contains the memory of our ancestors “experiences” that were emotionally charged and intense in some way. We can inherit memory of the traumas, obsessions, and emotional dynamics played out as the life experiences formed by our ancestral bloodline. This is the “automated” aspect of us that comes naturally without having to think, analyze, reason or make a decision. This is the part that’s “mortal” and dies with the body. Each time our higher soul incarnates into a new body it acquires a different personality and life situation that’s ideally suited for its identity to naturally take form out of through a natural process of growth and development. This is the part of us that serves as a vessel, vehicle, and house for our higher self to inhabit as a means of taking on a physical existence that’s necessary in order to “experience itself”, and then creates itself through how it associates with its own self-produced experiences.

Our subconscious is commonly associated with and represented as being our “heart”, and when we think using our heart (body consciousness) it comes as a lower form of intuition which is based on all of our experiences formed as feelings and memory, because all our experiences are permanently recorded within the etheric body as memory, and memory is the basis for instinct. When we’re living out of our lower nature from a semi-unconscious state, we live out of the story we formed about ourselves through our formative conditioning as memories of the past that are always playing out in our mind as habitual thoughts and internal processes that are driven primarily by feelings and emotions, where we simply repeat the patterns of the past as a way of creating the present to be of the same nature as a “type” of experience. We use the past as the basis for the ”story” we start telling ourselves, which was formed before our rational mind was fully developed, and out of our story we form our identity. This is how we form what’s commonly called our “ego” as an identification with our past, personality, material belongings and the social position we find ourselves in or work to achieve, that acts to “bond” our soul to its own material form. This idea can be more accurately called our “false ego” because it’s created through a form of false identity, and our higher soul isn’t a physical body or material reality of our body, it’s the essence that inhabits the body as a means of experiencing and evolving itself through it’s own mental creation.  

When we fail to recognize that we also have a higher, conscious mind that’s willful in nature and able to create by directing our own thoughts and making decisions that break habitual patterns while forming new ones in their place, we begin identifying with our lower nature and how we’re trained and shaped by others and our life situation, and never learn how to step into our higher mind and ability to create ourselves in whatever way we choose. Shaping ourselves according to our unconscious conditioning forms what we can call our false identity, where we believe we’re our body and personality, and as a result we render ourselves “mortal” in the sense that “we” – who we are experientially – dies with our body and life situation. Our soul is our identity, which can also be thought of as our character, and when we don’t wake up and remember who we are in terms of being our higher mind bestowed with the ability to decide who we’re going to be and what kind of story we’re going to tell by how we live our life, we remain locked into our animal, physical, unconscious existence. Because we only know ourselves to be our body, when we die and our soul separates from our body, we don’t “exist” in the sense of knowing who we are without a body, and we immediately look to reincarnate as a means of “existing”. Only the part of us that we create using the higher capacity of self-realization, choice, and will, remains immortal and transcends the material plane after death of the body, because while in a conscious state we’re fully aware that we are the “creator”, rather than the “creation”, and it’s only the creation that dies.

3rd eye meditation

Our conscious mind is the part of us that’s creative, and not only what “informs” the personality of its own material creation, but also has the ability to grow and evolve it by “seeding” its own lower self. This aspect of our soul exists on a higher or outer plane and is what’s not only producing the entire lower plane as a mental construct of itself, but also maintaining and orchestrating it, while never fully “entering” into it. It’s the aspect of our mind that’s projecting the lower plane as a reflection of “itself”, with the term “self” referring to pure mind and spirit, rather than a body with a personality. Once “we” leave our body, we exist outside of and apart from it as a “mental state” or energetic field of highly organized information (synthesized memory) that remains self-aware, self-conscious, and self-sustaining. The only purpose our body serves is in providing our true, higher soul with an “avatar” it can use as the means of experiencing itself through its own mental projection. It does this by impregnating its own subconscious with a conscious, self-aware aspect that’s slowly birthed within its own creation as a means of perceiving it from within it, and forms what we have come to call our conscious mind. The conscious mind of our body can be more accurately referred to as our “self-conscious mind” because it’s only “aware” of the material world and body in which its born. This is why we naturally “perceive” our “self” as being our body rather than the creator of our entire reality within which we live as a fundamental part and have our being.

Our higher, creative mind is the aspect of us that creates by “thinking”. On the higher level of our mind we create in the most basic sense by drawing on an “idea” from an even higher plane of universal archetypes, where we use that idea to form a corresponding reality within our imagination. The idea exists on the higher plane in a latent, unformed state of pure potential, and is turned into a possibility by how it’s “adapted and conformed” to the already existing paradigm being used to project and maintain the lower plane, where it’s transformed into a personalized version of the same idea. Ideas exist in their raw form as metaphors that produce reality as a theme that’s designed to give you a certain type of feeling. The conscious mind is what gives form to an invisible idea by imbuing it with sensory attributes that cause it to come alive with sensation, causing it to vibrate as an astral formation, clothing it with light that makes it perceivable internally as a sensory reality that acts to naturally invoke a correlated emotion in response to it when it’s viewed by the subconscious mind. The vibrating, sensationalized idea formed as an image that represents a particular type of experience is then projected into the subconscious, where it acts as a seed that begins growing within an ovum, and is systematically grown into a natural part of the existing outer reality.

Interefering waves

This is what quantum physics is referring to when it states that all ideas exist as and within a greater waveform, and creation comes by “collapsing” the wave into a single possibility, where it becomes clothed in an outer garment of “light”. Reality exists in a fundamental state of “probability”. This is also the principle described in wave-particle duality, where an idea exists simultaneously as both a particle and wave. On the higher plane of the universal mind all ideas exist as a wave, comprised of infinite possibilities in their potential state, and the conscious mind of our Ego Soul, chooses an idea which exists as a “metaphorical theme” and draws it into the imagination where it’s modified to be a natural aspect of its existing formation. It’s shaped into a 3-dimentional material form through sensory attributes that bring it alive with “qualities”, forming its character, out of which natural behaviors and operations form through the activity it naturally takes on.

 Our lower, material reality exists in what we can think of as an “embryonic state” that’s constantly being seeded with new information that facilitates how it naturally develops as it moves through different cycles. Our reality, like our body, is undergoing a constant state of evolution facilitated by forming new types of experiences that are translated into memory on the higher plane of the conscious mind. Our immortal soul is comprised of “memory” attained through its own experiences and maintained as a permanent record within the astral field of light, also called the Akasha field or “Book of Life”. Every aspect of our own creation is translated into a permanent record where it forms the basis for our karma, which becomes the “memory” for all proceeding incarnations. Our karmic seed is formed out of the memory formed through how we experienced our own creation, and is what forms our basic personality for all succeeding lifetimes as our inner nature, character, and predisposition. We’re born into a life situation where the same basic model is activated, established through our conditioning as our family dynamic, and set into motion as the basis for a continuous process of soul-evolution performed by how we use complementary aspects of our mind to grow ourselves through our own creation.

The Law of the Tetrad – How we Manifest and then Act to Evolve our own Manifestation

In Sacred Geometry what’s known as the Tetrad represents the principle of material manifestation. The Tetrad corresponds with the number “4”, represented by a cube, because it’s the fourth principle to evolve out of the primary principle of the Monad, and in science “4” represents the material world. Naturally, it also represents the “4 states of matter” (electrified plasma, gaseous, liquid, and solid), and the idea that all material form is created by how the mind shapes the 4 Elements of the Astral Plane into an image, picture, or scenario of some kind in the faculty of the imagination. The geometric shape associated with the Tetrad is a diamond, which is formed as the downward “reflection” of the Triad (triangle), and when rotated 90 degrees, forms a square. When this square is illuminated with spirit (the vitalizing force), it forms into a “cube” as a 3-dimensional reality (hologram), also referred to in some systems as “Metatron’s Cube”. A cube is comprised of 6 faces, 8 points, and 12 lines, which provides us with a mathematical formula of universal principles that serve as a form of instruction in how to use our imagination as the basis for not only manifesting reality in its primary form, but also the means necessary for transforming and evolving it through a natural process of growth and development.

Triad - Vesica Piscis

The principle associated with the number 6, is represented in the subtle body by the 6th chakra of the 3rd eye, which is located near the center of the brain, and is represented symbolically as being in the center of the forehead. If we draw lines connecting our two physical eyes with the higher point located in the center of our forehead, it forms a triangle. The apex of the triangle marks the approximate location of the pineal gland, which is the endocrine gland associated with the subtle organ of the 3rd eye. This forms the Triad, symbolic of the 3 aspects of the mind in unity as a “relationship” that operates between 2 parallel planes (a higher and lower), which are polarized aspects of each other, and combine to form a single unit as a coherent reality. The symbol traditionally drawn on the forehead to represent the 3rd eye usually resembles the shape of a woman’s vagina (or fish symbol), which is symbolic of the “cosmic birth canal”, also referred to as the “Vesica Piscis” of the Dyad, through which the seeds planted from a higher level of the conscious mind gestate within the womb of the lower mind, where they’re eventually birthed as a material formation.

Tetrad Vesica Piscis

The Dyad represents the “womb” in which the Triad is formed on the inner plane of the imagination as the etheric-double, which serves as a holographic blueprint that forms the energetic structure (matrix) used to electrify, order, spatially organize, and hold together “essence” (astral substance), also called “Prima Materia”, which is then vitalized with our magnetism (life energy), causing it to “vibrate” at a frequency associated with the form. This vibrating holographic image is then used as the “lens” the soul “looks through” as the means of seeing the same idea being reflected back to it on a greater scale as a whole outer reality (sphere). The idea of the inner forming the basis for the outer, is represented symbolically by the Monad, formed as a dot (black circle) centered within a greater sphere or circle of the same kind (white circle). These circles are polarized aspects of each other, with the smaller black one in the center representing the inner world of concentrated thought and the larger white one representing the outer projection of the inward formation to form a greater reality of the same kind and type. The center is the negative, magnetic pole of our inner mind, and the outer is the positive, electric projection of the inner, forming the same idea on different scales and levels simultaneously.

Triad

The Dyad is the “identical twin” of the Monad and is formed by the Monad reproducing itself and then projecting itself outward to form a mirror image of itself, creating the illusion of itself as (in) another, or as a greater reality formed out of the same “nature” and essence, which provides the setting and basis necessary to “perceive” and “experience” itself. This principle also represents the natural relationship that’s formed between what we perceive as the inner world of thought and the outer world of reality, where reality is formed as a reflection of our own thoughts about it. We’re located within the central axis of our own higher mind, creating the illusion of the outer being separate from the inner, yet they’re both an intrinsic part of the same field of organized information (mental paradigm) being formed, held in place, and animated through our collective memory. The dot in the center represents being centrally located (as our body) within the greater reality of our own mind, which appears to expand equally in all directions at once, forming our perspective of the world as “being out there”, further enhancing the illusion of being separate from our own outer creation. The principle of the Monad is also represented by a “solar system”, where we are the central sun (Son) that produces the electromagnetic, gravitational field in which all the planetary bodies orbit as the fundamental part of a larger, organized system.

Triad becoming Tetrad

Pineal and the Subtle Organ of the 3rd Eye

I’m not going to try and describe the Pineal gland in anatomical terms, as great deal has already been written on this subject, but rather provide an intuitive interpretation of the principles involved in how it functions. All the subtle organs of the body are spiritual centers that operate as principles that form a complete interrelated circuit, each of which perform different functions in the operation of the greater whole. The subtle body is what forms the energetic matrix as an “aetheric medium” for electromagnetic impulses to work through the central nervous system to operate and regulate the physical body. Electrical impulses are formed by our “thoughts” which originate in our Pineal gland and form an electrical circuit that runs through our nervous system where they stimulate the associated endocrine glands throughout the body, causing them to produce chemical messengers called hormones. The hormones are then injected directly into the blood stream where they act to keep the body in the same “vibratory state” as the mind.

This is the most basic way our mind (soul) uses our body as a “vehicle” or physical channel for expressing within the physical plane in order to create experiences of its own thoughts (creation). All spiritual principles illustrate the process through which “thoughts become things”. It’s the process through which an invisible idea (archetype) in its potential state (unformed) is absorbed into the passive aspect of the mind (subconscious) where it’s systematically “adapted” (through resonance) to the existing paradigm and modified into a specialized version so it can be “built into the existing reality” in a logical and meaningful way. As an idea is absorbed into the mind and modified into a personalized version, it simultaneously acts to evolve the model its being adapted to, changing its fundamental structure to form a slightly new variation of itself. As we change the structure of our mental paradigm through the incorporation of new ideas, it also changes how the outer world appears to us. As we incorporate new ideas they’re homogenized into our everyday reality, and become a natural part of how we think about things.  

All ideas that are universal in nature exist in their original state as a form of metaphorical theme that can be used to create an infinite number of variations based on how they’re applied to unique situations. All ideas are metaphorical in nature and are transformed by the mind (paradigm-Monad) conceiving them by being remolded into a unique variation that’s pertinent to the individual as “their own creation”. Ideas serve as a “symbolic representation” that can be applied in numerous ways to different situations within the individuals daily life, where they can be molded into an infinite number of “variations” that all still hold true to the main idea as a metaphor. This principle is represented by what’s called “fractal patterns”, where a “parent pattern” produces “offspring” as variations of “itself” reformed through new combinations.

The pattern (design) forms a perceptual filter which is used to “perceive” the outer world and is what orders and reorganizes any situation (as a reality) to be of the “same nature” as the mind perceiving it. Our mental paradigm is comprised of a “dynamic system of mental filters” that all combine and work harmoniously in forming our “perceptual lens”. As we “look through” the lens of our paradigm, which vibrates at the frequency of our model, it literally activates (vibrates) and calls forth (separates and pulls out) in the world around us (the ether of the greater mind) only what “matches” our model and can be used to construct the reality of our model, where it’s reflected back to us as a mirror image. Everything that exists in the space around us that doesn’t match our model, remains inactive and fades into the background where it sets the stage for the active components to be acted out in a new way. In this way, all of what appears to be outside of us is created as a reflection of what exists inside of us, within our “mind’s eye”. Our third eye is what perceives the inner and outer as a single field of organized information that’s an extension and continuation of each other, rather than disjointed aspects that are set apart from each other and function independently of each other as a result.

All ideas that are conceived from higher planes of consciousness are “original” in nature and come as a correlation to “mental states” and are absorbed into the individual mind through resonance. We experience this as an idea that pops into our mind out of nowhere, inspiring us with a sense of excitement, where we initially grasp it through our ability to relate to it because it doesn’t originate from our ordinary way of thinking. As we begin thinking about it, we steadily develop it by shaping it with the same attributes and qualities as all other ideas of a similar nature, integrating it harmoniously into our model and reshaping it accordingly. As we integrate new ideas, we act to evolve our mental paradigm, allowing us to perceive deeper and more complex forms of reality. In a similar manner, as we take up a concentrated study of new subjects, we steadily incorporate those ideas into our model, upgrading and evolving it, while developing new abilities as a natural consequence. All ideas that come to us spontaneously from what appears to be a higher or outside source, are conceived into the mind through the third eye of the pineal gland, which contains the holographic image formed by the synthesis of all our experiences that have been translated into memory of ourselves.

All ideas that come as thoughts, regardless of whether they’re absorbed unilaterally from the material plane as other people’s ideas and opinions or attained from a higher plane of original ideas (genius), work through the fundamental Principle of Polarity. The “passive” always acts to draw in and become impregnated with the “seed” of the “active” principle, where the idea then undergoes a process of gestation (adapted and reshaped) where it’s formed into a unique version as it’s “mental offspring”. As long as we’re in a mentally active state we can’t conceive the ideas being projected or transmitted by another active mind. This is self-evident in simply observing discussions, where both people are projecting their ideas in a way that deflect and counter the other person’s point of view, and neither one is “listening” or actively taking into consideration what the other person is saying. It’s only when we cultivate an attitude of “understanding” by passively “listening” to what the other person is saying and forming it in our imagination as a possibility, that we not only come to understand the other person, but we also acquire a new perspective on the same idea.  When we take an attitude of simply listening to what someone is saying, and we “view” the idea from their perspective without needing to change it through our idea about the same thing, we act as a passive receptor of their expression, and we’re able to understand the idea in a new way, expanding our awareness and cultivating a sense of compassion. In this way we blend into their reality and form a unified whole with them, which serves to grow our own model of reality to include new ideas as a possibility for applying in new and more unique ways. If instead, we meet others with a need to be right, where we challenge and contest their ideas by arguing to defend ours, then we close ourselves down to new ways of perceiving things, and we hinder and impose stringent limitations to our own souls growth and our ability to flux and morph into constant new variations of ourselves that express as new possibilities.

Interefering waves

Sacred Geometry and the Law of the Tetrad (Manifestation)

The basic function performed naturally by the subtle organ of the “mind’s eye”, also known as the faculty of the imagination, is demonstrated through the concept of the Tetrad. The material form that the outer appearance of reality takes on, results from the “internal representation” as a “transparent perceptual lens” we “look through” as the means of perceiving the same idea as a natural part of our outer reality. It doesn’t shape the whole of reality, but simply imbues it with the attributes and qualities inherent in the representation formed, which alters how it “appears to us”. All ideas willingly taken in and developed into a detailed idea by continuing to think about them in a concentrative manner, become a self-designed perceptual filter that serves to reorder the basic elements of astral light into a new configuration that’s integrated into our paradigm and becomes a natural part of our outer environment. 

The Dyad, which represents the relationship formed between two complementary aspects of the same mind, and two planes of existence (inner and outer, upper and lower) that are polar opposites of each other, or two ideas of a similar nature combined to form a new one, serves to both birth a new idea or evolve an existing one. The Dyad is formed out of the regeneration of the Monad, which represents a single unit as a holistic and self-perpetuating entity (mind). All of what we perceive as an outer reality is but a continuation or extension of our inner reality, both of which are created through our mental paradigm (hologram). Within our mind an entire ecological system exists and is projected outward to form the same mental structure on a larger scale as a greater outer reality or mental radiation. In psychological terms we refer to this as “perception”, which is formed out of the dynamic filters inherent in and used to construct our mental paradigm. Our mental model operates as a dynamic self-generating system of “metaphorical filters” that act to “select” (vibrate) and bring forward correlated aspects of the greater outer reality, while rendering others inactive, and we form a new “version” of reality as a unique possibility. Our mind is a hologram as a mental model, where every part contains the full information of the whole, and the whole is the summation of its parts.

Interference

In Quantum Physics the Principle of the Dyad is demonstrated by an “interference pattern”, which is where a wave-form propagating through space (being projected outward), enters into relationship with “itself” (a mirror image as an opposing wave-form) in everything else (a continuation of the inner to reconstruct itself as a greater whole), where the complementary waves overlap and blend into each other (resonate), and through the process of polarization, some aspects of the waveform are canceled out and contradicted, while other aspects are amplified and multiply to form a new pattern as a variation of “itself”. This “new pattern” as a new combination of attributes that organize into a new formula, form a set of correlated mental filters which are harmonious with the existing “system of filters” (model), and becomes the “lens we look through” to perceive (order and organize) an outer reality of the same nature and kind.

The Triad, the Imagination, and the Nature of Internal Representations

As two aspects of the same mind merge into each other and form a new combination as the reconfiguration of the same qualities in different degrees and measure, it forms a new mental construct as what we can easily understand as an “internal representation” (IR), which is symbolized by the Principle of the Triad. The Dyad is formed by two overlapping Monads, where the outer circle of one is at the center of the other, forming what looks like a woman’s vagina or birth canal, called the “Vesica Piscis” or “Womb of the Universe”, and we connect the centers of each one with a horizontal line, representing their shared “inner nature”, we form two levels within the birth canal. This line divides the inner realm of the two overlapping parts into two “parallel planes” (a horizontal line represents a plane or dimension) of the “same pattern” (holographic model). A triangle is then formed on the higher plane by drawing a straight line upward from the center of each one, uniting them at the highest point (pinnacle) of their combination. This transforms a single field into parallel planes that are polarized to each other (energetically entangled).

Vesica Piscis

As an IR is formed on the inner plane of the mind as a new pattern made by combining complementary aspects in new ways, it becomes the “invisible (transparent) template” for organizing an outer reality of the same fundamental nature. What tends to cause confusion in regard to this idea is that we think the IR we form of something is abstract and literal in nature, when in fact it’s actually a symbolic representation of an idea that serves as a metaphor that expresses on various scales and planes as a cohesive “theme”. This allows it to be applied to any number of situations where it’s adapted and modified through the new combination of elements present in that situation, while still providing us with the means for creating the same “kind of experience”. On the Astral Plane of the subconscious “symbols” are “things” and represent whole realities that organize and play out as metaphorical themes. Our IR doesn’t represent an actual physical situation or particular set of circumstances, but rather implies the “type of experience” produced through that situation or set of circumstances by how we internalize it.

If we then work on the lower plane of the Vesica Piscis to draw a straight line downward from the center of each sphere to connect at the lowest central point where they combine, we form a lower triangle that’s a “reflection” or “mirror (reversed) image” of the upper triangle, forming a new shape as a combination that appears as a “diamond”. This diamond, when rotated at a ninety-degree angle, forms a square, which is the symbol used to represent the material world formed out of the 4 Elements. This represents material reality, formed on a lower plane as a continuation or extension of the imaginary reality (mental construct) formed inwardly on the upper plane of the mind. The inner/upper Triad is formed as the exaltation of the combination formed by two complementary aspects. Two aspects of the same mind (conscious and subconscious) are combined in order to produce a “functional third” as a single reality that reflects back to us the reality of our thoughts, allowing us to experience ourselves through them.

A cube is formed as a three-dimensional (holographic) square that’s comprised of 6 faces constructed with 12 lines that connect 8 points, all of which are interconnected to form the “constitution” of a greater whole. Numbers always represent principles, which all unfold out of “1” (Monad), and demonstrate the relationships inherent in the whole. If we look at the cube as being comprised of two Triads, and we combine or overlap them (just like the Dyad) in their original orientation, one pointing upward and the other pointing downward, we form a Hexad, symbolized as the “Star of David” and what’s known as the “Merkabah”, which is the “light body” that exists simultaneously between two planes, and is the means of moving between parallel dimensions. The Hexad is symbolic of the harmonious interaction of two minds (Dyad) that exist on multiple planes, and when combined form a single reality as a unification or “coherent state”. The principle symbolized by 6 as being constructed out of two 3’s (Triads), is accurately interpreted as the harmonious relationship between our subconscious and self-conscious, governed by our Higher Mind, which originates on a higher plane in a unified state as a greater whole that projects the “entire reality of the lower material plane”. The upper contains the entire holographic model as a dynamic pattern of the lower, which it serves to project as an “inner and outer reality” that provides us with the means of “experiencing ourselves” in a semi-conscious manner by how we gain a sense of ourselves through our own self-created experiences.

The Monad represents the kernel or seed that contains the full information of the whole in its latent and potential state, and the Dyad represents the “polar opposite” of the same mind, that forms two opposing poles as a division of itself, where mental energy oscillates between complementary aspects of itself, forming movement as “vibration”. The Triad represents the 3-fold nature of the mind which exists as three aspects, each with a specialized function whose interaction produces a greater cohesive whole. It’s only by dividing into complementary opposites of itself, and then projecting outward form itself to produce the illusion of “space and time”, that movement naturally occurs as an electromagnetic pulsation that simultaneously generates “luminescence”, constructing the idea into a light-form that appears as a ghost-like image, also referred to as a “photon”. This phantom image originates as an idea (metaphorical pattern) that’s clothed with essence (astral light) as a vibration that’s self-organizing, self-perpetuating, and self-sustaining. It forms the energetic blueprint for spatially organizing a corresponding material body, out of which an outer reality of an equivalent nature is simultaneously radiated. One of the most basic mistakes we make in perceiving our “self” as our “soul”, comes by thinking that we’re just our body and personality, rather than realizing we are the “entire” lower plane as the “reality in which our body has it’s being”. This is demonstrated in the symbol used to represent the Monad, as a dot within a greater sphere, and in Quantum Physics as “wave-particle duality”. The particle can behave like a wave, and the wave can be collapsed into a single particle, because they vibrate at the same frequency as a “mental state”, and it’s the “state” that organizes and sustains the physical formation.

Etheric Double

Our subtle body is not only what provides the energetic template for constructing and maintaining our physical body but is also the “medium” we work through to transform and evolve our body. Our subtle body, which is also called our etheric-double, is the medium through which communication between two parallel planes of existence transpires through a process of resonance and sympathetic induction. This can be thought of as an idea in the form of a “seed” being planted in the fertile ground of the imagination, where it  takes hold and begins growing into a new possibility for manifesting as a natural and cohesive part of the already existing reality. All transformation results from making new combinations that “re-form” the pattern being used to structure light into a coherent reality. As we incorporate new ideas, we enhance and expand our mental paradigm, which “is” our subtle blueprint for producing a corresponding material reality. Our mind is what shapes and develops our subtle organism through the absorption, integration, and expression of new ideas as a way of being in the world. We can come to realize that ideas formed in our mind as “symbolic representations” for producing a particular type of experience are the means through which we grow and transform ourselves.

Reshaping Our Model of the World

Whatever ideas we take in and accept as fact, forming a belief around them, we make real through our ability to perceive them in our daily life. If we look at this process through the principles that operate through the subtle energy centers of the body, we can realize that as an idea is conceived and absorbed into our mind, we shape it into an image or reality in our imagination based on the concept we form out of it as an adaptation to our model, and how we develop it by continuing to think about. As we shape an idea in our imagination, we simultaneously form internal dialogue around it as a narrative or story we tell ourselves about it, which becomes the basis for what we say to others. As we think about, talk about, and describe or explain an idea to others, we call forth that same idea in their imagination, and it simultaneously connects us with that same idea in everything around us. As we shape an idea in our mind by imbuing it with sensory details, turning it into an internal experience, we simultaneously generate an emotional response to our own thoughts, and the emotion correlated with the imaginary idea becomes the motivating force for all our actions and behaviors that come naturally through how we express it. The emotion married to the thought-form, determines how we express that idea and what kind of experience we produce by how its expressed. What we call “reality” is formed out of our own imaginary emotional thoughts.

Merkabah

As we produce a reality out of our thoughts as an “experience”, we then uptake our own self-produced experiences, and integrate them back into the model that served to birth and give life to them, forming them into a “memory” of ourselves, and evolving our memory-based paradigm as a result. A memory “is” an internal representation that we naturally use as the means for consistently producing more and more of the same type of experiences. There’s a continuous “feedback loop” created as the interaction between the inner and outer, as well as between the higher and lower. As we take an idea and gestate it to produce a novel variation as an outer experience, we then reabsorb and integrate the experiences produced by translating them into more of the same kind of memory. As we evolve our mental paradigm as a parent-pattern, we evolve our outer reality in the same manner, because our paradigm is what forms our perception of reality. The inner is the “cause” that produces the outer as an “effect”, and then the outer effect produced switches polarity and becomes the cause for stimulating an equal inner effect. This cyclical cause and effect movement between the inner and outer, self and another, forms a self-perpetuating and self-sustaining rhythm that systematically upgrades and permanently modifies the etheric-blueprint that served to set it in motion in the first place. The mind is a self-constructing and self-sustaining system that “acts on itself” to evolve itself based on which aspects of itself as “qualities” it develops through a relationship of some kind that it forms with itself in another.

Self-Realization and Empowerment – The Art of Keeping Yourself Separate from Others

One of the things that make fundamental ideas of what we call “reality” elusive and difficult to understand in the most practical sense, is because reality exists as a basic form of paradox. A paradox is formed when two ideas exist simultaneously as a part of the same reality while appearing to contradict and disprove each other, yet at the same time, both are true and usually result from taking a different perspective in considering the same phenomena. Reality itself exists as what we can call a “single reality”, where we appear to be one with everything around us and exist as a “part” or aspect of that same reality, while at the same time we experience our self as being separate, alone, and often independent of everything around us. While we perceive ourselves as being here, and another person is over there, and there’s space and distance between us that separate us from one another, at the same time we realize that we’re always being influenced by the other person not only energetically in terms of a “feeling” we get from them, but also by their physiology, demeanor, and what they say and do. Especially when their behavior is somehow directed towards us, and their comments are “about us”.

In order to understand this idea in a practical way, we have to break it down into elementary terms and form it in our mind as a working concept. What we refer to as our “self” is also our mind, which is the energetic field we emanate that vibrates at the frequency of our “mental model” (paradigm) which is constructed out of all our memories which operate as a form of “semi-closed system”. All our perceptions, thoughts, feelings, emotions, and behaviors result from and are what act to express our mental paradigm as a means of forming a consistent experience of reality. Our mental paradigm exists as a kind of holographic model where every aspect (beliefs, values, preferences, and memories) exists in harmony with every other aspect and each serve to support and validate each other. Our model of the world is a “coherent model” as a “mental state” that forms the “lens we look through” to perceive others and the world around us.

Our mental paradigm exists as a cohesive model of interrelated ideas that are all melded together through a process of adaptation that modifies them into a personal variation, which then systematically emerge out of each other through a process of association. It forms a dynamic living pattern which vibrates at a specific frequency. All vibration has both a pattern (dynamic model) and a self-organizing mechanism inherent in it. This means that whatever our vibratory frequency is as a holographic model “acts on” everything around us to select (activate and call forth) only the information that’s of a similar nature and acts to assimilate the selected bits of information into a congruent pattern that serves as a variation (modified version) of itself. We only see in others what’s like us, and we use this reflection of ourselves as the means of perceiving and experiencing them. We always act on everything around us to “remake it” in our image while imbuing it mentally with the same qualities and characteristics that we possess intrinsically. Our mind works through the Law of Vibration and creates the reality of our thoughts through resonance and sympathetic induction.

In order to understand how resonance works in the most basic sense, we have to create a model that serves to demonstrate how it functions. Imagine yourself standing in a room with two guitars that are both “tuned” using the “same” tuning device and set them across the room from each other. If you pluck the string of a “C” note on one, it will vibrate the same “C” string on the other. The vibration of the one being plucked (the active aspect) “enters into” and vibrates that same note in the other (the passive receiver), and they vibrate in harmony with each other. As they begin vibrating in harmony with each other it amplifies and intensifies the sound. This same principle operates through our mind, which is an energetic system in terms of how it operates in organizing the outer world to match the vibration set in our inner world of thought and feeling. Whatever our vibration is as the “qualities and characteristics” that make up our “mental model” acts to bring those same qualities and characteristics alive in others and in everything around us as our “perception” of it. As we encounter what you might think of as a greater unified field of information that exists outside of us in a passive (neutral) and unformed state, we perceive it “through” our mental lens which acts to only bring out in it what’s of a similar nature to us, and we create an experience of “ourselves” in them. We don’t “see them” as they actually are, apart from and different from us, but rather as we remake them to have the same qualities and characteristics as we do. Once we act to bring out in them what matches us in terms of our character, these shared qualities then form the nature of our interaction, and we reshape them to reflect back to us our own thoughts about them. We can only see in them what first exists as a part of our own constitution.

This can be difficult to realize in the most basic sense because our mental paradigm is formed out of both our conscious and unconscious mind, which means we easily see in others the same traits and qualities that we also possess but have denied having, refused to express, and have repressed consequently. Once we repress aspects of ourselves that we don’t like, they remain active inside of us and continue creating at the unconscious level where they form a fundamental part of our outer reality. When we encounter these repressed aspects of ourselves in another or in a situation of some kind, we form a distinct reaction to them. This creates a fundamental illusion that presents itself as a paradox that comes about naturally through “polarity”. The aspects of ourselves that we accept, like or find admirable, we include in the image we form ourselves and when we encounter those same aspects in others, we form a similar response to them. When we encounter aspects in others that we have repressed due to how we judged ourselves for having them, we react to them by forming the same judgments. Our judgment comes as the commentary that accompanies the reaction itself as what we begin telling ourselves about the other person, or what the situation means about the people involved.

This idea is very important to understand, not only as a means for seeing into our own unconscious nature, but as the means for understanding how to not let other people’s attitudes and perception of us affect us. It helps us in forming a clear realization that what someone says or does, whether it’s directed towards us or not, is a reflection of “them” and has nothing to do with us unless we make it about us. Their actions only serve to reveal their character and mindset, but when you allow it to trigger a reaction in you, it calls forth in you those same characteristics, causing you to become “like them”, or as a means of making their ideas about you true. Whatever feelings, emotions, and thoughts you allow to enter your mind and take hold, you turn into a reality. We tend to do this naturally without realizing it because we exist primarily in a semi-unconscious state where we function in an automatic way based on memory. But once we begin recognizing what’s happening, we can use our mind in a more conscious and deliberate way to prevent it and keep things in their proper perspective.

When we exist in a primarily unconscious state we tend to be in a constant form of reaction, either to others and the events of our life, or to our own thoughts. We approach everything from a semi-unconscious state where we’re fairly self-contained and consumed in our own thoughts about things, yet as soon as we’re triggered somehow, we instantly go into an automatic reaction. The trigger comes as an emotional zinger (intense inner stimulus) that prompts and calls forth a memory as the dynamic we use for producing an automatic reaction. The emotion that acts as the activating mechanism is directly connected to a memory where the same emotion was playing out, and subconsciously we instantly reference that memory by saying “this means the same thing as that”, and we react by displaying the same behaviors. As we react, it causes an equal reaction in them, where it escalates, and it simply goes back and forth where we’re both creating out of an unconscious state of “auto-pilot”. This same process continues when long after the event has past when we continue to think about it and replay it in our mind, forming a reaction to our own thoughts. We keep ourselves in the same state of mind due to the fact that we can’t seem to honestly let it go, and it keeps playing out as random thoughts that run through our mind unattended throughout the day.

An easy way to understand our unconscious mind, which is also called our lower self or animal nature, associated with our personality, comes in realizing that it doesn’t “think” in terms of reasoning or discernment, and is always in a reactive state of some kind because it functions instinctively through emotional impulses. It exists outside of “time” and is always present in the moment, while receiving constant information as impulses from everything around it. Instinct comes as “memory” that has behaviors inherent in it, and as an animal is stimulated by a feeling or emotional charge of some kind in the environment around it, it triggers an automatic reaction. The reaction formed doesn’t come by analysis of what’s stimulating it, or by thinking about what to do as a strategic response, it comes instantaneously as a behavioral pattern. As we’re stimulated emotionally by an outside source we go into an automated process where our conscious mind temporarily shuts down and we act out the same behaviors that we formed out of memories of the past where we were being stimulated in the same way.

This is what it means to live out of a semi-unconscious state where you build whole realities out of emotional reactions that keep you locked inside of a constant form of delusion. When we use the term “unconscious”, many don’t understand what it means because we equate unconscious with meaning we’re not awake and aware, because they often fail to comprehend that we actually have “two aspects of our mind” that function together in producing our experiences of what we call reality. When our unconscious mind dominates by running our thoughts, we live out of a constant form of reaction, whether in relation to others or in response to our own thoughts, and we use memories of the past as the lens we look through in the present, replaying the same ideas over and over, reshaping the present to be of the same nature as the past, while our conscious mind simply “observes our delusions” in a self-aware manner. Emotions are designed to keep us locked into automatic processes where thoughts run through our mind in an habitual manner, and is the number one way we’re not only “controlled by others”, but also fail to use the creative capacity of our conscious mind, by learning how to instead direct our own thoughts while deflecting the emotions being transmitted through the atmosphere by others.

The ”conscious” aspect of our mind comes as our “thought life”, where we think and form internal concepts as a way of directing our own subconscious through a form of “virtual memory”, and as a way of internally “generating” emotions in response to our own thoughts. There’s a very dynamic relationship that exists between thought and emotion, where one is always directly connected to the other in an equivalent manner. When we passively absorb and take in emotions being transmitted through the atmosphere by others, they serve to render us unconscious by directing our thoughts in an impulsive and automatic way, seemingly beyond our ability to control them. When we form thoughts out of a calm state, where we’re not being stimulated by an outside force, as we shape our thoughts into a sensory reality in our imagination, we generate emotions in response to our thoughts, which not only act as the motivating force that determines how our thoughts become expressed, but also forms the vibratory frequency that we act to transmit through the atmosphere around us. Thought is a function of our higher, creative mind, and emotion is the motive force of our lower, expressive mind. Our body is the vehicle for our higher mind to express through. The only question in any moment is which one is determining the other, and which one is running the show in terms of how it is we’re creating our experience of ourselves through the reality we’re forming using both aspects of our mind in harmony with each other.

Observing Your Own Internal Processes

One of the keys to becoming self-directed is to learn how to observe your own internal processes that occur in a completely natural way without your direct awareness of them. Once you begin seeing how these automatic processes work you can begin developing your own methods for working with your mind and the mind of others in a conscious and intentional way. To do this, sit quietly in a place where you won’t be disturbed, quiet your mind of all the chatter, and recall a memory of an instance where you were upset by something someone said or did. Don’t associate into the experience by reliving it emotionally, but instead remain just outside of it where you can observe the interaction in a somewhat objective way, as if you’re another person watching it from a detached perspective. Picture the invisible aspects operating in the situation in your mind by turning them into imaginary concepts. As the person said or did whatever it was that caused you to react, notice where the energy of it entered your body and stimulated you. As you feel the stimulus in some part of your body, what emotion did it immediately give rise to? Once the emotion was active inside of you, what memory did you immediately associate to it that was formed out of the same emotion? Allow yourself to recognize that your reaction was formed by how you “interpreted” what was said or done, and that interpretation formed a recourse as the basic pattern inherent in the memory that formed how you reacted (being mad, upset, angry, hurt, sad, etc.). What meaning did you give the memory that served to form how you experienced it and what story started playing out in your mind as a result?

Concentrate all your attention on the invisible forces that were operating in the situation as a form of “energetic transmission”. Then, clear your mind, and recall the same memory while playing out a different mental scheme. Imagine your mind is a clear sphere of energy that surrounds your body while extending outward 3 to 4 feet and acts as a form of protective barrier that prevents the energy being projected by others to enter your mind and stimulate you internally. This clear sphere or egg-shaped bubble not only acts as an energetic barrier, but also a transparent movie screen or lens. Picture the same thing happening, except this time it hits the outer periphery of your mental sphere, where instead of entering your body, it plays out more like a movie you’re watching from a dissociated state. You can see what movie the energy is impregnated with as a way of seeing the other persons thoughts and what’s playing out in their mind from a detached perspective where it’s not affecting you in any way and you remain calm. As you keep it outside of yourself and you simply “witness it” from a detached state, you not only get to see it as it (they) really is apart from you, but you also act as a mirror to reflect it back to them, allowing them to see themselves as they really are.

All reactions come by absorbing and taking on the energy being projected by others who are in near proximity of you. As you absorb the energy that’s pregnant with the thoughts and intentions of others and you let them take hold and begin growing within you, your mental state changes and you become “like them” in nature. You’re literally being influenced to become like them while unaware of what’s happening or being aware that you’re the one who’s actually doing it to yourself from a primarily unconscious state. Your conscious mind is the aspect of yourself that acts as the “gatekeeper” of your subconscious mind, because it has the ability to think and evaluate ideas from a rational state of reasoning and make “decisions” about what to let in and what to keep out. But it can only perform this duty when we remain aware of what’s happening and therefore able to direct the activities of our own mind. This basic function comes by learning how to keep ourselves emotionally separate from everything around us and in being able to realize what’s happening in terms of how we’re being stimulated by the outer world at any given moment. Through consistent practice we can begin training ourselves in how to not react emotionally to whatever is happening and remain calm and centered in the midst of what would otherwise cause a great deal of inner turmoil, and learn how to see others as they truly are rather than as we remake them to be like us.

How to Work with Your Subtle Body as Your Mind in Order to Transform Your Reality

Many who have been tutored in the energetic arts have been taught that what we refer to as our “subtle body” serves as a form of blueprint and etheric double for constructing and sustaining our physical body, but don’t know for sure how to work with this idea in the most practical sense. This idea serves to illustrate universal principles that form the basis for how our own “mind” works in creating not only our self, but also our entire material reality. By examining the principles involved we can acquire practical instructions for how to use our own mind in transforming our experience of reality. Through a fundamental misunderstanding of this principle many believe that they need to work with a surrogate as an “energy worker” or practitioner of divinatory arts, or through some form of technological process that’s designed to “alter the vibration of their energy field”, when the truth is we inherently possess everything we need to transform ourselves and our life in whatever way we choose. All we need to do is learn the process necessary for using our own mind to modify and transform our mental paradigm, which “is” the means through which we create not only ourselves as a material being, but the reality we act to naturally project as a direct correspondence of our paradigm.

We must begin this process by defining the terms being used because everyone forms a different mental concept of the same words based on whatever they’ve been taught and formed a belief around, and we need to make sure we’re all talking about the same idea. Our mind functions as a mental sphere or electromagnetic field that acts to organize “essence” (internal light) into a holographic, three-dimensional form that serves as a vessel, vehicle, or instrument for actively expressing in the material world of outer, stellar (sun) light. Once an idea is created internally as a 3-dimensional form that’s vivified by our life force, it’s then animated by our “will” where it plays out as a larger pattern of the same kind and type. This idea is illustrated through what’s referred to in Quantum Physics as the Holographic Principle. This is a fundamental principle which describes how all life exists as “fields within greater fields of the same nature”, and how vibration as a conscious pattern of living energy proliferates equally on multiple scales and levels at the same time.

12 Earth's moving through vortex

Fields of what we can call “universal information” (archetypal ideas in their potential state) are used as the means for remaking universal concepts into personalized variations by the individual mind, because both the cosmic and individual mind operate using the same principles. This is why they’re referred to as “universal principles” because they’re fundamental in the sense of how our mind works, rather than pertaining to the material construct produced “by” the mind. The mind itself “is” what we refer to as “the organizing principle” that’s inherent in vibration and is what acts to organize light into the pattern of the vibration. Natural laws pertain to biological systems and how they operate within the material world, while universal laws pertain to the mind and soul, which are what act to organize biological systems while also animating them with Life. Both the mind and soul exist on multiple levels simultaneously while playing out the same patterns as universal themes on different scales. We have an individual mind, a group mind of humanity, and a cosmic mind, as well as an individual soul, the Earth’s soul, and the universal soul of the cosmos. Each aspect of the mind exists in polarity with itself in the other, and together play out the same idea in a harmonious and congruent manner.

We often make a fundamental error in how we think about principles by believing that a principle somehow pertains to the material objects used to comprise a system or model, instead realizing that it’s the “invisible” field of energy that accompanies and is acting to organize, hold together, and animate the model. A principle operates as the natural forces that shape matter itself into a body of light that’s archetypal in nature, which means they’re metaphorical themes rather than fixed systems and rigid ideas. An archetype is what provides the basis as a form of universal template for creating the reality that will bring a particular type of “experience”. It’s an idea as a prototype that’s formed with specific attributes, qualities, and characteristics that determines how it expresses in becoming a “cause” for producing a corresponding “effect”. Each person will take the same archetype as a universal metaphor and theme and shape it to reflect their own nature by how they adapt it to their mental paradigm and their current life situation.

 The same Universal Laws play out in ordering and organizing information into material forms that are imbued with a certain type of personality that behaves in specific ways. The form itself doesn’t give rise to the “qualities it possesses”, but rather the qualities (of consciousness) it’s naturally imbued with determine the form it takes on and how it functions through natural behaviors that act to express those qualities. Qualities, form, and function are three aspects or stages of the same overall process. We don’t ever work with the “form itself” to change its behavior and the operations it naturally undergoes as a form of self-expression but work instead to introduce new qualities and attributes that imbue it with corresponding characteristics. By changing the internal characteristics of the form itself as it’s energetic nature, we also change how it behaves and operates as a normal way of being.

Mandala

To change a pattern, we don’t work on the pattern being faithfully produced, but rather the vibratory frequency that’s assembling and maintaining the pattern. Our subtle body is often laid out as being comprised of four correlating bodies or energetic sheaths, referred to as our causal, mental, emotional, and physical bodies. Our causal body is formed as an idea that we shape into a mental form in our imagination and imbue with sensations that naturally gives rise to correlating emotions in response to it. The emotion generated comes by how we “present an idea” to ourselves internally forming it into a “feeling”. A thought formed as an “internal representation” that’s brought alive with sensation gives rise to an equivalent emotion, which inhabits it and becomes the motivating force that acts out the pattern of the thought through natural behaviors and activities. In order to change the outcome or what results as a manifestation, we have to change what “caused it”. All physical manifestation comes as a corresponding “effect” produced by a “cause”.    

Our mind (which is invisible and undetectable to the physical senses) is constructed as a sphere of consciousness made by organizing subtle energy as essence into a 3-D model, also referred to as our “paradigm”. Our paradigm is our mental model and what we use as the means for perceiving reality and is constructed out of “internal representations” formed out of experiences that are built-up over time as memory. While we tend to think of memories as independent and often unrelated to each other, what you’ll realize upon closer observation is that all memory is a “holistic system of living information”. Memory is very dynamic and constantly in the process of morphing and evolving based on how we use it as a mental filter for perceiving the present to be the same as the past. We use memory as the “lens” we “look through” to create more and more of the same type of experiences as a consistent and ongoing story about ourselves and our life. As we adapt them to new situations to produce a congruent variation, we acquire diverse attributes that serve to morph and evolve the memory.

Spark of Consciousness

Our life is created in a consistent and harmonious fashion based on how we build an internal representation of an idea that we use as the means of forming an instant interpretation of events that give them “meaning”. Anytime we’re stimulated in a pronounced way by something outside of us, our mind instantly references all memory of the same kind. We use the memory as the perceptual lens for interpreting the present to “mean the same thing” as the past, and we respond in a similar way by automatically displaying the same type of attitude and behaviors. This is the process constantly being used to form immediate and automatic reactions. Memory and emotion are always coherent and act together to form a single reality. The emotion acts as the means for instantly selecting and activating the “pattern” inherent in the memory, which provides us with a thematic template for producing the same type of response and more of the same type of experiences. 

Models can be thought of as dynamic patterns that are in a continuous process of expressing and being used to create experiences of a congruent and harmonious nature. While we tend to think we retain memory of actual events in terms of the physical circumstances, if we examine them in terms of how we replay them in our mind we realize we don’t. Memories are formed by how we interpret events as a way of creating how we experience them. We interpret the events to make them “mean something”, and the meaning we give them shapes the story we tell ourselves about them as the means of experiencing them, and our experiences are built-up over time forming a “theme”. All ideas played out as a material event or situation are processed and internalized by the higher mind as a metaphorical theme that can be adapted and utilized in any situation as the means of creating how we experience it. An event that caused us to feel “betrayed”, for example, becomes a theme for interpreting all other situations of an even remotely similar nature to mean the same thing. As we go through an experience of an intense emotional nature, it also forms an underlying “belief” that becomes an “expectation” as well as a form of unconscious “intention”. Beliefs and expectations are formed as mental filters that act to only notice and abstract in any situation what matches and can be used to create more of the same type of experiences.

As we create more and more of the same type of experiences, we accumulate them as variations of the same idea, and over time use them to build our “mental model” as an symbolic representation for systematically producing more experiences of being betrayed. We then respond (and thereby create) as if we’re once again being betrayed, and as a result turn it into an actual reality. We then form spin-offs of a common theme that specializes it in some way. Betrayal can come in many different ways and can be applied to any number of situations as a “general idea” or theme to consistently produce more experiences of being betrayed. As we produce more of the same type of experiences by using the past to shape the present, we validate them as being real and justify our right to react the way we do. Even when we’re not actually being betrayed we’ll act as if we are, and usually act to betray the other person in some way as a result. We “act” in accordance with our perception, and “bring out” the appropriate qualities in others by first betraying them in some way, causing them to respond with a feeling of being betrayed, fulfilling our expectations.

Our Energetic Blueprint as a Metaphorical Theme

The subtle body is often described as being the blueprint or “etheric template” for “spatially organizing” our body through ongoing processes of regeneration, yet this idea can be difficult to grasp in the most practical sense of working with it in a conscious and deliberate manner as the means of transforming ourselves and our reality. It becomes more of an abstract idea that we contemplate in theory rather than as the primary tool for creating and transforming ourselves to a new state of being. Our etheric-double is our mental paradigm, also called our “subconscious mind” and is what we also use to perceive, structure, and interpret our “outer reality” to form an experience of ourselves “as” a fundamental part of that reality.

This idea exists as a universal principle that can be easily understood by simply observing your own internal processes from a detached and objective perspective of “witnessing” or passively observing how it is you form your perception of reality. By silencing your self-talk as an ongoing habitual commentary of some kind, and concentrating instead on how you’re “feeling” in a situation, natural thought-processes rise up out of those feelings, formulate, and play out as an imaginary scenario, you can observe how it is that you’re always forming an “internal representation” (IR) that you use in place of your actual reality. The IR becomes the means for filtering through all the information available in a situation to select only what matches your preconceived idea about it. You then take the small, selected bits of information and form them into a new configuration that gives you a thematic template for using to create how you experience it. You use the IR as the means of anticipating the actual experience and for making decisions based on it.  You’re always forming an internal experience as a means of anticipating and forming an outer experience of the same nature.

Our internal reality is formed as a holistic model born out of the vibratory “state” of our “mind” and serves as both an inner reflection of our thoughts and a means of expressing them to create an outer experience of the same nature. Our mental state is formed as a vibratory frequency, and like all vibration, has a pattern as a “way of thinking” and a self-assembling principle inherent in it. As we think through habitual patterns as life themes, we construct the reality of our thoughts through our ability to “perceive them” in the outer world. Both our inner and outer reality are formed through the same process as “thought patterns” that act to reflect each other. As we think we perceive the outer world of our thoughts, allowing us to form an experience of them. This is what the term “projection” means. As we project onto others and the world in general, we shape others to be “like us”. Our mind creates reality by “how we think” and imagine the reality of our thoughts as working concepts.

Stargate

Our mind, like the universe and life itself, is holographic in nature and forms “mini-models” of ideas by using the same information contained in the larger model of our mental paradigm. These miniature models are formed as IR of ideas that are used as the means for understanding something and to use as a form of “internal map” for navigating and reorganizing the information contained in the outer reality. The internal map is a representation of the outer idea that views it from a holistic perspective of the bigger picture involved. We use this as a means of coordinating and orientating ourselves within a larger idea of a similar nature.

As you pick an idea to “think about”, and you focus your attention on it, allow yourself to notice that an immediate concept of the idea forms in your imagination that’s formed out of all the accumulated memory you have of that idea. As this internal concept naturally forms out of an idea, simply observe it as it is without needing to change it, while simultaneously realizing that this is the model that you’ve developed over time that you use as the means of comprehending it. Your comprehension of something at any given moment is based on accumulated experiences and memories, whether learned from actual experiences or taught to you as a theory. Everything you know is brought together in that moment as a means of structuring an internal model that you can use for interpreting that idea as a means of creating how you experience it. Everything you “know” (have harmoniously integrated) about that idea as it exists within its present context forms instantly in your mind’s eye as a living concept that you use to perceive it as an outer reality. Every time you apply that idea to a new situation you modify it to form a new variation, and as you reintegrate the variation back into the model that produced it, you evolve the model according to any new attributes acquired. As you evolve an idea (memory) it becomes more complex and inclusive. The idea formed on the inner planes of our imagination becomes the perceptual lens that we “look through” in order to “see” that same idea within our outer world. As we acquire new information and experiences, we consistently synthesize them into our existing model as the means of evolving ourselves to a higher level of understanding.

Internal Representations as Holographic Models

We often fail to realize how we use our mind to create our perception of reality because we don’t understand that it’s a model built out of accumulated experiences as variables that are combined in a complementary way to form a “whole” that’s “metaphorical” in nature. Most have been taught to perceive themselves and their experiences in a literal way. We’re taught to view things as fixed units that exist and operate independent of us instead of realizing that we’re actually the one “forming” our perception as a unique variation of a universal theme based on the inner image we develop and build-up over time. As we integrate more and more variables into our model as the means of upgrading it, we expand our understanding of things and are able to realize new things about the same idea. Our potential for self-expression expands in direct proportion to the internal representations we develop.

While there’s a tendency to think that our subtle-etheric blueprint is only used to construct and give life to our body and personality, and that by working with it we only work to heal and transform our own physical maladies, the fact is it’s the soul that inhabits and forms “experiences” of itself “through the body” and creates both our internal model and external perception. Within the material plane, the outer reality is formed as a projection of the inner soul. The Soul-Mind enters into the body, forming a unique combination of memory (soul, genetic, and ancestral) that develops new internal models that are used to organize the light of the outer plane into a corresponding pattern. The soul itself is archetypal in nature and multidimensional. It comes into every incarnation with the universal memory it has created as “experiences of itself” that are built-up over time as a holographic model that serves to spatially organize light as matter of the outer world into the same metaphorical pattern as the inner world. The soul as a mental construct forms a blueprint as a thematic template for continuing to evolve itself through the creation and acquisition of new types of ideas produced as unique variables. The actual memories produced and acquired in one life are formed into an archetypal construct as a thematic model that’s returned to a universal state as qualities and characteristics that form natural tendencies as a predisposition for continuing to create more of the same type of experiences.

This mental construct composed of subtle energy as a living metaphor that works to evolve itself, is formed out of and by the mind and soul. This is self-evident by the simple fact that if you take a person out of their existing conditions and circumstances and put them in a brand new and totally different environment, they’ll simply create the “same type of experiences” all over again within that environment. Their life theme and inherently developed qualities still “perceive” in the exact same way, and they still employ the same type of behaviors that serve to recreate the same type of relationships. We are always the common denominator in the consistency of our own experiences. This idea is expressed in the saying “no matter where you go, there you are”.

If however, we act to change the inner being that’s organizing and orchestrating the outer world as its complementary opposite, by working with archetypes that possess distinct qualities, and we consistently embody and express those qualities, we act to transform our inner nature through experiences acquired from new ways of being. As we embody new ways of being, it changes how we feel and how we experience our self in relation with everything else. As we create new experiences of ourselves, we begin building up and synthesizing new experiences as a way of evolving our mental paradigm. As we evolve our mental paradigm as the energetic frequency of our mind, we evolve our perception of reality as a correlation. Our mental paradigm is formed out of the synthesis of our values, beliefs, preferences, and memories, and is a self-sustaining and self-perpetuating system that produces reality as an experience of itself, which it uses as the means of growing and evolving itself. So as we work with our subtle body as the means of transforming it, we simultaneously transform our outer reality which is formed as a projection of it.

Our Self-Image

The most basic IR that we form as a means of creating our life is the image we form of ourselves. Many have been taught that the image they form of themselves is a projection of their ego and should be denounced or dispersed somehow because it’s “bad” and comes as a delusion or basic form of misidentification, but this is only a partial truth that can be very misleading and cause us to disconnect from our true inner power in the most basic way. The image we build of ourselves is a product of our own mind and imagination and is what forms the basis for our mental paradigm. All other IR stem out of and act to complement and express our self-image as “holographic fractal patterns” or ideas that work together to construct the outer world as the “stage” necessary for developing ourselves through our own mental projection. Whatever image we form of ourselves forms the basis for self-expression and defines “who we are” and what our life is about. The image we form of ourselves becomes the main character in our life story. It sets the stage necessary for experiencing ourselves through our own idea about ourselves. We project reality as a means of organizing it into a personal theme that allows a certain type of experience, and then we “absorb” our experience and convert it back into memory. Our accumulated memories form the basis for producing consistent experiences that we then use as the means for shaping and fashioning ourselves. What it all really comes down to is whether or not we’re engaging in this process of self-creation unconsciously through purely natural and automatic means, or consciously in a self-aware and deliberate way. Are we locked inside of our own unconscious perception and unaware that we can direct it, or are we consciously assuming the role in being the one who’s writing our life story and directing our own movie? What role and position in the greater picture are we playing with full awareness and in an intentional and precise manner?

This idea is communicated in the saying “as within, so without”, and that the only way to change the outer is by changing the inner. That nothing changes until you do. In order to change your life you have to start by changing your mind about it. This also forms the basis for why “reality” is commonly referred to as an “illusion” in spiritual doctrine and considered a product of our imagination. The outer world is shaped by our perception of it as a “reflection” of our hidden (inner and semi-unconscious) nature. All outer awareness comes as a projection formed out of our inner nature. Our perception of others is really a perception of ourselves in them. We only “see” and respond to in others what exists in us as a correlation. We shape everything else to be of the same nature and likeness as we are. We alter the “appearance” of reality through our perception of it.

In quantum physics this same idea is expressed by the fact that the mind of the individual influences how reality “appears” to them, and that the experimenter influences the outcome of the experiment, because the outcome is being “produced” by the mind perceiving it. This principle is also realized through the fact that light (the stuff of matter) exists simultaneously as both a particle (personal existence) and a wave (universal existence), and “pops in and out of existence”; and the Principle of Entanglement, which basically states that any particles that are “born together” (one comes as the regeneration of the other) or “fused energetically” as the “same state” (married), continue to function “as one” no matter how far apart in space (waveform) they appear to be. Change the properties of one by simply setting up an experiment to “measure it”, and it spontaneously changes the state of the other one. By simply “observing” one particle with an intention in mind, changes its state to match the intention, and the other one that’s polarized with it, no matter how far apart it is in space and time, changes in exactly the same manner (opposite spin) at exactly the same moment. Our inner model is what’s producing our perception of that same idea (thematic pattern) on a larger and more complex scale.

A New Way for Understanding the True Nature of your Mind and Soul

It’s interesting to notice how modern science and psychology are acting to steer us away from our own true spiritual nature by attempting to equate our “mind” with our brain and body, and our “memories” as something stored in the brain, while debunking the idea of the “soul” as being real. They’re simultaneously gearing us up for the idea of merging our personal consciousness with a computer (the singularity) as a way of supposedly achieving immortality. Yet we already possess immortality through the very nature of our mind and soul. We’re being systematically taught to think of our “self” as our physical body and personality rather than our soul and consciousness, which promotes the natural assumption that when our body dies, we, as an individual, will also die and cease to exist. Yet nothing could be further from the truth. 

What I would like to offer in this article is a new way of looking at the mind and soul that ties ideas together in a way that greatly expands our own awareness of ourselves. True knowledge can only be realized and attained through direct experience. It doesn’t come in a lab or through scientific experiments that are designed to gather and measure physical evidence or material substances, or by forming mathematical formulas in an attempt to prove a theory of some kind that lacks practical application in the most basic sense. While many portray the mind as being mysterious and elusive, the simple fact is it can be observed by reflecting on how it “operates” as inner processes we naturally engage in through thinking, imagining, and processing information, and can be “known” in a direct and intimate sense.

Scientists seem to completely overlook the simple fact that all their theories, hypothesis, formulas, and experiments are being developed out of thin air (in an invisible manner) by their “mind”. Our mind isn’t a material substance, it’s the intelligent, invisible force that “causes” material “effects”. It’s what’s generating, constructing, holding together, animating, and maintaining our perception of reality as an outer reflection of our inner nature. Reality itself can only be “known” through our ability to “perceive it”. All science is discovered, invented, and conducted using the mind. We can gain a practical understanding of the invisible nature of our mind by reflecting on symbolic ideas, spiritual terminology, metaphorical concepts, and by simply using it to create imaginary realities. We don’t want to take an attitude of swinging from one extreme to another by moving from a purely rational and logical mindset to a mystical, fantasy oriented one, but rather by using our “whole mind” in combining them to form intuition and reasoning.

The terms “mind and soul” are synonyms, and are different words used in describing the same thing (phenomena). The soul constructs and creates the material world through the mind, which is commonly represented as a sphere of invisible energy that’s conscious and self-aware. Its creative capacity comes through its ability to construct realities and material images by thinking about them. As we think we form the ideas into visible images as a possible reality or experience. The longer we think about something, the more detailed and alive it becomes. The image formed is initially shadowy, translucent, and appears more like a reflection on glass. On the inner planes it appears as an image reflecting off of a dark shiny surface, similar to how our memories appears when being recollected and replayed. In the magical arts, which is all about working with the imagination to produce the “prototype” for manifesting as a natural part of the outer world, this idea is referred to as a “magic mirror”. This magic mirror is formed out of a black, polished stone, where prophecy and premonitions can be perceived inwardly. This also symbolizes how our higher self works in using a “symbolic idea” as a form of “metaphorical seed”, that’s then projected into the subconscious of the body, where it appears as a reflection in our mind, as a way of giving it a “pattern” for manifesting by building it into our existing reality.

As we think, we picture our thoughts as a reality or scenario that starts off vague and impressionistic, usually with a neutral or grayish tone, and by continuing to think about it we steadily shape it with sensory details that vitalizes it with sensation, causing it to begin “vibrating”. It usually not only starts off vague and neutral colored, but looks and feels as if it’s off in the distance or far away. As we continue to define it with color, texture, sound, smell, contours, tastes, and so on, it gives us a “feeling” as a bodily sensation that naturally generates an “emotion” in response to it. As we form it into a sensational three-dimensional construct that generates a correlating emotion, it starts to look as if it’s close up and in vivid technicolor, and we start to form an inner dialogue around it as a story we tell ourselves about it that gives it “meaning” and forms an inner “experience” of it.

The idea shaped into a sensory reality at a purely mental level, forms a feeling that acts to stimulate our nervous system, causing a “chemical reaction” that we experience as an emotion. It becomes what you might think of as an electrical impulse or “spark” that follows a pathway through our brain, nervous system, and endocrine glands that acts to adjust our body chemistry to match our mental state. We are constantly producing the physical chemistry of our thoughts. What we refer to as the spiritual energetic centers of our subtle body (chakras) act on our physical body to “regulate it” through a form of vibratory impulse that keeps our body in the same state as our mind, making it an appropriate vehicle for our soul to express through. The conscious energy centers of our subtle body stimulate the correlating endocrine glands associated with those centers, which generate and release “hormones” directly into our bloodstream that serve to regulate all our biological processes.

Our thoughts, pictured inwardly as an experience serve to regulate our biochemistry and produce equivalent emotions, which then become the animating force for expressing them through natural behaviors and activities. As we generate emotions in response to our own thoughts, those emotions are transmitted through the atmosphere where they’re felt by others, stimulating them into the same emotional state. While our thoughts are primarily unique to us, emotions are universal in nature and effect every living being within the material world and are the natural forces that drive “instinct”. So even though they may not form the same thoughts as we do, they form thoughts that are naturally born out of the same emotions. Every emotion contains a form of “theme” as a particular type of experience. This is how we’re always influencing and transforming everything around us to match our vibratory state. This is the main way our mind directly effects our physiology making our body an ideal vehicle for our mind to express through and use as the means of “experiencing itself”. Thoughts developed in our imagination also produce “electrical sparks” in our brain that set whole biological processes in motion through our nervous system.

The Subtle Body and Our Etheric Blueprint for Regeneration

What’s referred to as our “subtle body”, which can also be thought of as our “astral” or “etheric” body, is formed by our mind as a “holographic template” or blueprint for spatially organizing and constructing our body, and for consistently regenerating it throughout our lifetime. Anyone who has ever built or made anything realizes you need a design as a preconceived idea, plan, blueprint, or diagram. What’s called “Astral Light” in Esoteric Sciences is the substance used by the mind in the Qabalistic “Plane of Formation”, where an idea (that’s invisible) is shaped into an image (made visible). This is the plane (phase) where spirit, as archetypes in their unformed and “potential state” (invisible in origin), are drawn into the individual mind and formed into a holographic light body clothed in “essence” and “formed” on the inner planes as a “vibrating pattern”. We form them into our “own image” by adapting them to our existing paradigm, which we then “look through” as a means of perceiving the same idea in everything around us. What we call “reality” as our outer world is formed through our perception of it. We’re always shaping reality as a holographic matrix formed out of our own thoughts.        

The essence used by the mind to shape an idea on the inner planes is “starlight” (astral light) which is also a form of “plasma”. This neutral essence used to shape ideas into form, appears in the same way “nebula” does throughout the cosmos. It takes on a misty cloud-like appearance that’s very malleable and as it becomes concentrated takes on a more liquid-like appearance. This can also appear as an invisible field comprised of a lattice-like structure that “draws” essence out of the space around it, as a form of magnetic-pull, and constructs the image into a ghostlike shape that’s then developed into a living entity by continuing to think about it. As we think about something we continuously shape it with attributes that give it distinct qualities and characteristics.

This can be thought of as an original archetypal idea that exists primarily as an invisible field of information that vibrates at a frequency correlated to its “class or species”. This field of information as a “basic pattern” is then sculpted by the mind into a 3-D form and imbued with the same qualities the mind shaping it is also comprised of, making it into a correlating image of itself. This can be understood by recognizing that every person who focuses on the same basic idea will shape it in a different way where it fits into their everyday reality in a congruent and meaningful way. We always shape ideas to resemble us, because we’re also a hologram (mental model) made of specific attributes, qualities, and characteristics concentrated into a single idea, and as we draw in an idea in its primary, universal form, we steadily adapt it to our image and modify it by assigning new qualities to it that reshape it to be a natural part of our current reality.

How We Construct Reality as a Probability

The creative function of our mind operates to construct our outer reality to be a reflection of our inner thoughts. Our mind vibrates at a specialized frequency that’s unique to us because we’re the one who’s constantly organizing and maintaining it. What we perceive as the outer reality exists as the greater, group, or cosmic mind, which contains all information in archetypal form in a latent and inactive state of “potentiality”. This entire outer field of illumination, which is also comprised of astral light (sunlight), exists in a fundamental state of “probability”. It contains all “information” in its raw form that can be utilized for constructing an infinite number of novel variations. The individual mind, which exists as a paradigm or holographic model, is comprised of a selected amount of information abstracted from this greater field and used to make a new construct that serves as an outer reflection of itself, where it can perceive and form and “experience” of itself.

The mind exists as what we can think of as “fields” that exist within larger fields of the same nature and kind. As the individual mind blends into the greater “field of probability”, it acts on it to vibrate and call forth only what’s of the same nature (essence) as it is, using the selected bits of information to build a consistent version of reality. We only draw out of the space around us what matches us as a metaphorical theme. We then take this small amount of selected information and shape it into a mirror image of ourselves as a specialized version, or unique possibility. The outer world is shaped as an objective version of the inner, setting the stage for acting out our personal drama, allowing us to experience ourselves through our own story about ourselves and our life.

Two Levels of the Mind

Within the astral plane of formation, we have what we call an upper and lower level or region, which are different “aspects” and functions of the same mind. As the mind comes into the realm of experience, which requires a light-body, it divides into polar aspects of itself, forming the conscious mind on a higher level, and subconscious on the lower level of the same plane. Both aspects of the mind play different roles and functions in creating the same reality as an experience of itself. The conscious mind exists on the higher level and is the active, masculine aspect, and the subconscious of the lower plane is the passive, feminine aspect of the “same mind and soul”. The higher aspect of the conscious mind can never fully manifest into the material formation but is what acts to produce the “seed” as a thought-form that impregnates the subconscious, which then grows the seed into a holographic construct which serves as a “living blueprint” (dynamic and malleable) for building into the existing outer reality.

 These two aspects of the same mind and reality that they work together in producing, are referred to in Esoteric texts as the “Son” (Sun) and his “Bride” (Moon), who together, through an act of holy matrimony (energetically fusing into one essence), produce an “offspring” as a reality that’s comprised of both aspects formed into a single unit. These are also referred to in the “pantheon of the gods” as “brother and sister”, born of the same essence (genetic makeup) and soul, who are also husband and wife and marry, merging into each other as “one mind and soul”. As the conscious mind forms the seed for impregnating the subconscious, its built into a living entity on the inner planes and then birthed on the outer planes as their offspring, forming a single reality as the vehicle and means for self-expression.

Both aspects of the same mind are comprised of three aspects (formed as one), two of which are polar-opposites of each other, and together form a unified idea in relationship with each other. All formation as a 3-D construct only comes through vibration, where conscious energy moves in a spiraling motion between two poles that are set apart from each other, where they interact by switching back and forth through an active and passive state. The movement between two poles as an electromagnetic pulse of consciousness, produces heat as friction that expands and illuminates’ essence forming a living matrix of light as a holographic, 3- dimensional form. Each aspect is comprised of both a feminine and masculine, or passive and active aspect, which alternate polarity as the means of producing movement as a vibration. Each aspect of the triune mind is represented by an “equilateral triangle” that forms a model for understanding how complementary aspects, represented by the two points at opposite ends of the horizontal base line, interact to call forth and assemble a unified formation, represented by the single point, formed as the apex, on a higher (or lower) level of the same plane. They literally stimulate each other into existence as a form of energetic fusion or mating.

On the upper level of the conscious mind, the triangle is orientated so it points downwards in a descending motion. This symbolizes that the complimentary aspects (upper baseline) are what forms its intrinsic nature or constitution. The lower triangle is formed as a mirror image of the upper, where the complementary aspects of the upper are projected into the lower subconscious as a reflection of the same nature. The triangle of the subconscious is also orientated downward, where it’s apex forms into a single point, forming the etheric body as the holographic model or etheric double that forms the energetic substrata for the material world. The unified nature on the higher level is projected into the lower level of the same plane, forming a reflection of itself. This forms the complimentary aspect of the subconscious, as the instinctual, emotional mind, and the intellectual, cognitive aspect of the mind. These two complementary aspects form into a single unit as the astral, etheric, or subtle body, which forms the energetic field of “coalesced essence” as a “frequency” (energetic stresses and tension) for organizing and assembling the entire physical reality as an outer reflection of itself.

The complementary aspects of the subconscious, which are a reflection of the higher consciousness, perform the same function as an operation on the material plane as they do on the higher plane. What most think of as their conscious mind while in their body and reality of the body, is actually an aspect of the subconscious, that shares the same ability of the higher conscious mind in being able to impregnate its own feminine aspect, which we refer to as our subconscious. We all have the innate ability to form thoughts as visual images, vitalized with sensory detail that make them come alive as an inner experience, that we can use to give our subconscious a “pattern and command” for building into our existing reality as a natural part of it. But few people realize this higher ability in being able to create their own reality.

Higher Self

Many people live their entire life virtually unaware of their higher mind, and the fact that they are consistently programming their own subconscious through their thoughts formed into realities in their imagination as possibilities for experience. And instead, allow their thoughts to be run by their emotions where they replay the same memories associated with their emotions over and over in different ways as a constant ongoing form of self-dialogue. Many live their entire life without ever realizing they’re the one not only constructing their reality and experiences, but also have the ability to change it by evolving it into new variations by reforming it in their imagination as a way of “seeding” their own subconscious. When we develop an idea in our imagination, imbuing it with sensory details where it comes alive as an experience, while forming dialogue around it that tells a story about the type of experience we want to have, our subconscious acts to “conceive it”, and gestates it by building it into our existing model being projected as our reality, where it appears outside of us in a corresponding way, through a natural series of correlated events.

This process can seem confusing to most because they don’t realize that any idea formed on the inner planes as a “mental construct” is formed as an archetypal matrix, which serves as a “prototype” for producing as an outer experience by adapting it to the current environment, and shaping it based on whatever elements of a congruent nature are available for making it. The idea formed is not a literal representation of an exact situation, but a symbolic one. On the inner planes of the imagination, all ideas are metaphorical and represent a particular “type of experience”. How it comes about is irrelevant in the most basic sense because the material formation itself merely serves as the means for bringing us the experience of ourselves that we requested in building it.

Mental Vibrations

How Our Mind Builds a Sensory Reality

It’s interesting to note how it is that we are consistently taught to separate the inner from the outer by saying that our “brain” acts to translate an idea into an outer perception through our physical senses, instead of realizing that our mind is what’s producing reality itself. What we sense outwardly is first shaped inwardly, on what we call the “invisible” level. We seem to always separate our physical body from our mind, just like we separate our conscious from our subconscious, and our subconscious from our higher consciousness, instead of realizing they’re all different aspects and levels of the same creative process. This can be understood by reflecting on how it is we form our thoughts into living realities by how we develop them in our imagination.

When we initially think of an idea by pulling it up in our mind, it appears as a flat, somewhat distant, neutral toned, vague, cloud-like shape. As we concentrate on it, we begin developing it by shaping it with sensory attributes. These attributes come as visual contours, textures, designs, patterns, and colors in various hues and tones. We then incorporate sounds that come as being in the experience of it, along with odor’s, aromas, taste, and what it feels like to touch it – soft, silky, smooth, rough, sharp, and so on. As we continue to develop it with sensory attributes, it takes on a quality as a “feeling”, and comes alive with movement of some kind. As we continue to develop it with sensation it starts playing out as a whole scene formed as an orchestration or composition. As it begins coming alive within us, it seems to become closer and more immediate, where it produces correlated sensations that stimulate our body as a “feeling”. The feeling produced acts to stimulate a corresponding “emotion” that animates it as “experience”. As it comes alive with emotion, we begin telling ourselves a story about it that shapes it into the “type of experience” we want. The story we form out of our own mental creation is how we build it into our existing mental paradigm and is what allows it to become a normal part of our outer experience. All of this is happening at the mental level as a construct formed in our imagination (image as a nation), and though it’s not real yet as an outer reality of the same kind, it provides the etheric-template as a “vibratory frequency” for producing as a correlating outer reality.

We literally bring the idea alive on the inner planes of the mind by “vibrating it”. We do this by imbuing it with our soul’s “magnetism” where we shape it to be a reflection our “self” by giving it the same essence that we possess, vitalizing it with our “life-force”. We shape it using our life energy as our consciousness. We take an idea in a potential state and we “clothe it” with an outer garment of light, giving it an outer appearance where it can be perceived and experienced in the material sense. The same process of shaping it by giving it an outer appearance comes by how we mold it into our existing mental paradigm, where it manifests in material form as a natural part of our present outer reality.

While we know scientifically that all material life forms exist as a “vibratory frequency”, we don’t always recognize that it’s the mind and soul that serves to form the “pattern” of the vibration. A vibration not only has a pattern inherent in it, but it’s also accompanied by a “self-assembling mechanism” that systematically “builds” the pattern into a 3-dimensional reality as a construct of “living essence”. Most people think this “vibrating matrix of light” we experience as reality is formed and animated independently of us, while we’re subject to it and powerless to change it. Yet, upon closer examination we’ll discover that we have the ability to create realities by merging mentally with ideas and bringing them alive with feeling sensation that forms an “electrical impulse” that sets a “chain reaction” in motion within our body, producing the “chemistry” equivalent with that idea, altering our physiology to match the vibration of our imaginary thoughts. It’s our mind and soul that gives life to all things, and not the other way around.

The Paradox of the Mind

“As Above, so Below, and as Below, so Above, in the Wondrous Working of the One Thing”

Both aspects of the mind are Triads, represented symbolically as a triangle, and exist on higher and lower levels as mirror images of each other. When these triangles as mirror images are combined into a single image, they form a diamond shape. This diamond formed as the triangle on the upper level forming a reflection of itself on the lower level of the same plane, forms the Tetrad. This diamond shape, when turned 90 degrees (at a right angle) forms a square, and the square is the symbol that represents the material world. Sacred geometry provides us with working concepts for understanding how Universal Laws work in creating our reality, which are also the laws that govern our mind and provide us with intuitive instruction for learning how to create our life in a conscious and self-aware manner. This basic operation produces an etheric lattice as an energetic field of electromagnetic stresses that shape the substrata out of which a holographic construct is formed as an inner and outer reality joined to form an “experience” of our own thoughts.  

Triad - 3 levels /aspects of the mind

All concepts designed to illustrate Universal Law can be interpreted in a number of ways because they represent how the same process functions on multiple levels simultaneously as a single operation that both starts and ends a creative process. Once an initial idea is formed in the mind, we then use the same process we used in creating it to evolve it. We do this because each time the initial idea is expressed through a new situation, it reproduces as a variation of itself, and the variation produced is then integrated back into the original form that served to birth it. While the concept of the monad can be looked at in many different ways, I’m going to focus on its dual, polarized, paradoxical nature, because this is the function that tends to cultivate the greatest confusion, due to one aspect appearing to contradict the other.

In Sacred Geometry the mind is represented by the symbol of the monad, pictured as a dot in the center of a greater sphere of the same shape. This concept represents the mind as a single entity that functions through dual aspects that are complementary in nature and work together in producing a single reality. While contained within the lower material construct built by our mind, we perceive ourselves as a body contained within a greater reality, in which we live and acquire experiences of ourselves. We have both a “conscious” and “subconscious”, where our conscious mind seems to form our “outer awareness” and our subconscious is viewed as forming our “inner awareness”. Yet, if we look at reality through the model of the monad, while also realizing that what we call our conscious mind of outer awareness, exists as an inherent aspect of our subconscious, which operates just below the level of awareness, we can gain a greater understanding of the relationship formed between both aspects.

Stargate

If we move outside of the perception of an inner and outer that are separate from each other we can realize that the greater sphere, associated with our outer reality is being built, held in place, and animated with activity by our subconscious, which is the material aspect of our mind that uses an archetypal model (called our paradigm) to generate a correlating physical reality. Our conscious mind is represented by the dot in the middle as a central point located within the outer sphere and is what forms an awareness of our unconscious construct. our subconscious forms our “whole reality” and the conscious aspect is what uses that reality as a means of experiencing “itself” by telling a story about it. Our conscious mind is the part of ourselves (notice this is always plural) that forms reality out of a “story” it acts to “tell itself” as the means of producing its own experiences. The very nature of our thoughts come as one aspect of ourselves talking to another one. Internally we’re always talking to ourselves. The conscious mind appears to be “located” at the center of the outer world and forms an awareness from that perspective as being the center of its own universe (sun). We create our own world by living it through a story we’re always in the process of telling ourselves.

The outer world of “light” (as an illumination) is being produced by sunlight “reflecting” off particles (matter and moisture) in the atmosphere, in the same way the moon reflects sunlight. The sun represents our conscious mind, and the moon our subconscious mind. The outer sphere of illumination is formed as a reflection of our own “consciousness”. The conscious mind of the material plane is always viewing the reality of its own unconscious creation. It’s not just “aware” of the outer world but is also what forms the same “awareness” of our inner world. While we’re in the world of our subconscious, we’re unaware of it. The term “sub” is used in describing our unconscious mind because it’s what forms the underlying, energetic, lattice like substrata, of which the material one rises and constructed as the means of setting the stage for acting out the story of our soul as a means of experiencing ourselves through our own story. The conscious aspect of our mind is the only part that “sleeps” and shuts off awareness of the outer world, while the subconscious operates continuously from the moment of conception to the moment of death, and never sleeps, checks out, or shuts down. It’s the aspect of our mind that systematically and faithfully operates all of our biological processes.

 The monad can also be viewed as a sphere of circulating electromagnetic energy that flows in a toroidal shape. While we tend to view this flow as originating from the center point of the body and flowing outward, it can also be viewed as an electromagnetic respiration of circulating energy that acts to “concentrate” a center. This energy field expands equally in all directions at once, being more concentrated or pronounced a few feet away from the body, while the subtle aspect expands a great distance from the body. It functions primarily as a semi-closed system where the same group of information (paradigm) circulates in a pulsating motion to consistently form the same type of construct, while also functioning as a semi-open system that blends into and interacts with other minds and energy fields. As we interact with others and the world around us, new information is gathered and formed into unique variations that are simultaneously integrated back into the system as an experience, acting to develop it with new attributes and evolve it accordingly.

This smaller field of the individual mind exists within a greater field of the group mind, which also exists within an even greater field of the universal or cosmic mind. Each field of either a smaller or greater nature is comprised of information in both its latent and inactive state of potential, and in an active state organized through our “perception”, forming the basis for self-expression. As one field meets and blends into another, they both act on each other to stimulate congruent, correlated aspects that they share in common. The interaction between two minds occurs through polarity as a relationship that’s formed with the same aspects in another. Whatever is actively expressing in one field finds its correlating aspect in the other and acts to vibrate it, and the active aspects of both work together through resonance to form a new reality as a variation. The new attributes acquired modify the original qualities and characteristics, changing how they both express to form “new types” of the same overall reality as a joint experience. The new variations produced populate the greater field of the group mind or collective unconscious as “memory” that forms the building blocks for constructing new possibilities.

The universal mind, on the other hand, is archetypal in nature and exists in a fundamentally latent state of pure potential. The archetypes inherent in this greater universal field provide us with prototypes as general ideas that can be customized by the individual mind to form a personalized version. This field is “unformed” in its original state and is available for the individual mind to draw on and utilize based on what it activates in it through its own vibration. This aspect of the mind exists in a pure and unmixed state (virgin) of latent potential. We draw on the higher mind anytime we move above or step out of our own memories and draw in information for creating new ideas. We only activate the possibilities in this greater field (aether) that we vibrate in harmony with and that can be harmoniously molded into our existing mental paradigm, where it acts to grow and evolve it through new ways of perceiving that bring us a higher level of understanding and broaden our range for self-expression.

How Our Mind Forms Reality out of Our Thoughts

As we think, we simultaneously tune ourselves to the frequency of our thoughts as they exist in the atmosphere around us. In the general sense, thoughts formed as pictures are symbolic in nature and vibrate at a particular frequency that sets up and establishes a form of “gravitational field” between us and all other ideas of a similar and complementary nature. Our thoughts turned into images, pictures, or scenarios on the inner planes of our mind act to form an invisible field of electromagnetic stresses as a kind of “thematic pattern” that’s used to organize light in the greater field that surrounds us into the same type of pattern. This vibrating field of organized information is a “thought-form” that’s constructed out of “essence” (electrified plasma) that we vitalize with our own life-force, creating a kind of ‘astral-shell’ or ‘etheric template’ that serves as a vehicle for invisible, electromagnetic energy (spirit) to inhabit and propagate through space as a form of self-expression.

As we create thought-forms in our mind, correlating energies from the atmosphere around us that are of the “same nature” (frequency) are stimulated and called forth in an active state, forming the basis for shaping them into the reality of our thoughts. As we think, we shape an image of our thoughts in our mind using what appears internally as a kind of neutral essence. This grayish, neutral toned essence that the mind uses to construct thoughts into images is what’s referred to in Esoteric Sciences as “Astral Light”. This light is the primordial root substance of “matter” that exists in a passive and latent state until it’s stimulated by the activity of the mind. The mind interacts with this essence and uses it to form a visual image of its own thoughts, which is then used for producing an outer reality of the same kind.  As we create a thought-form in our imagination, we magnetize it with our own energy by imbuing it with sensation, which acts to bring it to life and animate it on the inner planes. These energies are intelligent forces that are all around us in the Earth’s atmosphere and we experience them as sensations that move within our energy field forming emotions. Emotions are the instinctual forces that cause all the “activity” we associate with the natural world. As we vibrate a pattern on the inner planes, it becomes a “metaphor” as a frequency that acts to organize the outer plane by vibrating and calling forth the same type of image on a greater and more inclusive scale as a correspondence. 

Our mind functions as an electromagnetic field (EMF) that pulsates as a form of respiration producing a toroidal (donut shaped) field of energy, that operates as a continuous “circuit” of self-generating and self-sustaining consciousness. The center or nucleus of this toroidal field (mind-field) is shaped over time into a “coherent model” of concentrated thought that forms an “electrical charge” that’s projected outward, activating, and awakening correlating energies all around us that are of the same frequency as our thoughts. Once this electrical charge hits the outer boundary of its impulse, it then reverses polarity, becoming magnetic, and is drawn back into the very construct (paradigm) that acted to produce it as a mirror image of itself (its own thoughts). As we perceive the outer world of our thoughts, we process them internally forming them into an “experience” of ourselves. The experiences we form, which were produced by memory to begin with, are then molded back into the same memory that produced it, where it acts to “evolve” it.

Our imagination is the faculty of our mind that we use for producing our experiences as thoughts brought to life by instinctual forces. All things only “exist” when they’re being stimulated into an active state of expression. Whatever we’re stimulated by outside of us, spontaneously gives rise to correlating feelings and ideas within us. This is also the faculty of our mind that we use for shaping our memories, and for recollecting and replaying them. As we think, we perceive and simultaneously construct the outer reality of our thoughts. People who have a vivid imagination yet haven’t learned how to direct or use it properly, often form internal realities that keep them consumed with constant forms of emotional dramas, usually without realizing they’re the one whose creating it. They’re their own judge and persecutor and are the one keeping themselves locked into constant delusions of their own making.

We don’t realize how it is that we’re doing this using our mind because it comes in a completely natural way. This isn’t a “literal process” where we’re actually changing reality itself in the object sense of rearranging things, it’s the process we all use in turning what exists fundamentally as an objective reality into a subjective one. Whenever we walk into any situation some things stand out and become immediately apparent, while others go unnoticed, and fade into the background. The parts we notice, we give our attention to, think about, and we use to form how we experience of that situation. When we set an expectation of some kind, which acts as a kind of prediction or prophecy, we see in every situation what we expect to see because we literally pre-programmed ourselves to only notice and call forth what matches our expectation and can be used to form the experience we expected to have. Memory works in the same way. Whatever memory we live out of in the general sense of constantly thinking about and running through our mind, forming endless dialogue around, becomes a program for only seeing in any situation what matches our memory and can be used to create more of the same type of experiences.

The Creative Power of Fear

Fear is both an imaginary adversary and a magnet for the energies all around us that are of the same nature as our fears and can be used to construct the reality that will give us more of the same feeling. Images of any kind formed in the imagination and imbued with strong emotions act as a symbol (representation) for the qualities associated with them as a certain “type” of experience and put us in direct contact with those same forces in the atmosphere around us. Focusing on a lion, while imagining it as aggressive and terrifying, tunes us into those same “qualities” in everything around us, drawing them into our sphere of awareness, where they act as the life-giving force that animates our thoughts, determining how they express in forming our perception of reality. This is how we summons elementary forces of Nature and use them as a means of creating. This same creative process is the basis for “Magic” performed as a ceremony, where the magus stands in the center of a circle, and is designed to walk the magician through the process of creating reality by summoning and eliciting the cooperation of natural intelligence’s (spirits) that are inherent within the space around us. Our subconscious, which is the aspect of our mind we share with all of Nature and is what acts to build our outer world, is “programmed” to create by providing it with a symbolic representation as a request for a certain type of experience. 

As we form fearful thoughts, we generate the emotion of fear internally by how we “act on ourselves” using our mind to stimulate our own nervous and endocrine system with the electrical impulses of our thoughts. We literally tune our energy field using the image associated with feeling afraid, saturating it with the energetic quality that will multiply and intensify the sensation of fear. Whatever feeling we generate on the inside we experience on the outside. We literally gestate the thoughts associated with fear, building them up on the inner planes as sensory forms, drawing to us and concentrating more and more of the same type of fear. We then birth it as a “whole reality” of correlated activity that unites the inner and outer as an extension and continuation of the same feeling. This is how we create a ‘seed’ within an ‘ovum’, that gestates and grows into a living being that then becomes a part of our outer world. We ‘look through’ our energy field as our perceptual lens, saturated with the propagation of fearful thoughts, and ‘only see’ (energetically interact) in everything else what’s of the same nature and quality as a possibility for creating more of the same type of experiences. We literally tune into, choose, separate out, draw together, and compose the reality that we then use to form our experiences. We have a hard time realizing this because the greater part of the process is being conducted in a completely unconscious and automatic way.

The Monad as the Model for the Mind

We can influence and learn to direct our reality by managing and consciously regulating our own thoughts. Energy flows as a continuous circuit from a positive to negative pole, which are separate and set apart from each other, yet connected as a waveform. All material substances are both an object (dot) and a wave (sphere) at the same time, which is demonstrated in the symbol used in Sacred Geometry to represent the Monad. There’s no such thing as drawing to us as a part of our outer perception and experience what’s not being generated and coalesced by us. We create the experience of being subject to the outer world of people and events, where we imagine we have no ability to influence or direct it, yet, at a deeper level we’re “subject” to the very thing we’re acting to unconsciously create. We can regulate and determine what energies of the natural world we draw to us by being aware of and intentionally directing our own thoughts.

The Pentad or Pentacle is a symbol of the power of the mind in organizing the four elements of the natural world into a harmonious construct. Fire is electric and expands, stimulates, and draws forth essence, Water is magnetic and receptive, and contracts coagulating and coalescing energies into a single unit, and combined, they form Air, which represents their offspring as a thought formed into a matrix of astral light as a three-dimensional holographic construct. Once essence is organized into a concept through a process of gestation, it both charges – sends out a signal that activates all correlating energies and essences – while also drawing them back in and building up the idea associated with them. This breeding, conception, gestation, and birthing process is the same principle that operates to create and build up memory as an internal representation for a particular type of experience. Memory, which is formed out of experiences, acts as a etheric template that’s “thematic” in nature, and forms the perceptual lens we look through and use to reconstruct the outer world into the same theme.  

As we begin the creative process by forming thoughts that act to draw in correlated energies, we not only tune our energy field by populating it with the images of our thoughts, but we’re also producing our experience by using a “vitalized idea” that we then reabsorb and synthesize back into the very representation that we used to generate it. An “internal representation” and a “memory” are both symbolic representations that are formed in the same way, and both act as the basis for projecting and building our outer reality. As we go along in life we use memory to produce our experiences and then merge those experiences into the memory that formed them. The memory we build up over time is a summation of all experiences of that same idea and the emotional state coupled with it. The more we create out of a vitalized memory that serves as a “symbolic representation” for producing a particular type of experience, the more stable and normal the experiences become, and we lose awareness of the fact that we’re the one creating them.

Spiritual Regeneration and Soul Evolution

This same principle of regeneration and evolution is represented in the ancient myth of Kronos, the god associated with Saturn, who’s depicted as eating his own children as soon as they were born. Saturn and the Greek god Kronos are also associated with Binah of the Qabalah, an aspect of the Supernal and sphere of “understanding”, where all experience as memory of the self is absorbed (drawn up from the lower plane of Formation), across the Abyss of “knowledge”, and synthesized back into a single archetypal memory as the seed for the next incarnation. While we’re incarnate within the material plane these are the same principles that we use as the means of creating our experiences, and then using those experiences to create ourselves by how we identify with our own creation. As we think and form our thoughts as inner realities, regardless of whether we’re doing it consciously by intentionally directing our thoughts, or unconsciously by replaying the same handful of memories over and over, we’re populating our subconscious and energy field with those “images”. These images vibrate at the frequency of the “feeling” associated with them and tune us into the same energy in everything around us, while giving our subconscious a symbolic metaphor for producing the reality that will bring the type of experience our mental images represent. 

As we energize our thoughts with instinctual forces of emotional intensity, they become a natural part of our outer world as the people, activities, and events associated with them, and we formulate experiences out of them. This is the real meaning of what some are now calling the “Law of Attraction”, where you concentrate on an idea while infusing it with sensations as sensory details used to define it as an “experience” on the inner planes of the mind. This inner experience tunes the entire energy field to that idea as a symbolic representation and provides the means of producing the same type of experience outwardly. Whatever you vibrate on the inner planes awakens the same type of energies on the outer plane through resonance. The light-form created as the imaginary reality of your thoughts, acts as the vessel, carrier wave, or vehicle for bringing it alive as a material phenomenon. Once we vitalize our own internal representation with life force energies drawn from the space around us, bringing them to life inside of us as imaginary scenarios and possible experiences, our entire energy field becomes aligned to the same consonant. This works by forming our very perceptions, thoughts as internal dialogue, emotional state, behaviors, and the activities we naturally engage in. We “move it outside of us”, so to speak, where it starts showing up all around us in various ways and interacts with us in forming our experiences. We start seeing it in various forms within our normal reality. Someone starts talking to us about it, we read an article about it, see a headline, and come across the same idea in different ways throughout our daily activities.

The Power of the Spoken Word

This idea is more profoundly represented in the creative principle of the “spoken word”. Words are spoken both silently within our mind as thoughts, and outwardly in what we talk about or say to others. As we say a word, we immediately form an image in our imagination that represents the “meaning” of the word. Once an initial image is formed, we use it as the basis for building into a reality by continuing to think about it. As we think about something we steadily shape it by defining it with sensory details. The longer we think about it the more detailed it becomes, and we shape it into a possible experience. This imaginary experience acts to generate emotions that are correlated with it. Our thoughts regulate our physical state because they act as electrical impulses that run through our brain and nervous system as a dynamic network, stimulating our endocrine glands, which saturate our whole system with chemicals that generate an emotional response to our thoughts. The emotions generated coalesce with our thoughts, serving to animate them and bring them to life as an “inner experience of reality”. At this point it’s still invisible in terms of our physical senses, yet it’s an astral form that serves as an etheric blueprint and spatial model for ordering and organizing the same idea on a larger scale as an outer reality of the same kind. It becomes the symbolic template for generating realities that give us more and more of the same type of feelings and emotions.

We begin forming our “story” about ourselves based on how we interpreted our experiences to form a memory of them. While we tend to think that we form a memory of actual events and situations, if we look at them more closely, we’ll come to realize that they’re actually formed out of how we interpreted those events to make them mean something. Whatever they meant to us at the time they happened forms the story we told ourselves about them, and out of the story we began shaping our identity. Our identity comes by how we get a “sense ourselves” through our own story as both the author and main character, which forms the nature of all our experiences. We form our experiences out of an ongoing story we’re always telling ourselves. If you reflect on the nature of your own thoughts, what you’ll realize is that “one part of you” is always talking to “another part of you”. You’re always explaining, describing, debating, and telling yourself stories about things as your ordinary thoughts. All our experiences are generated as the expression of a consistent theme formed as a core memory, and then reabsorbed and integrated into that same story, evolving it through the telling. We literally “become” that idea in spirit because we use our own, self-generated, self-constructed experiences to form our reality. This idea is what Jesus was communicating when he stated, “and the word was made flesh and walked among us”. We literally form our reality out of our thoughts about it.

The Imagination and the Minds Ability to Generate Reality

This same principle as a creative process is demonstrated through the interaction as a dynamic relationship between complementary aspects of our own mind, known as the conscious and subconscious mind. These are not two different minds, but two aspects and specialized functions of the same mind that work together in producing a coherent reality. We perceive the inner and outer world as being separate and set apart from each other because we’re grounded within our physical body which is “located” within the outer field of our mind, forming our perspective from a centrally located reference point. Our body and the outer world of our body are formed out of the same mental model as a coherent mental construct. The illusion of being separate from the larger idea playing out around us is necessary in order to form an “experience of ourselves” through and as a fundamental part of that idea. As we form an internal representation of an idea it tunes our mind to the same pattern as a 3-dimensional model that serves as a metaphorical theme or archetypal matrix. This means the idea can be applied and systematically adapted to any number of situations or circumstances to produce a variation as a possibility of the same overall idea.

An “idea” is holistic in nature and isn’t about a specific material construct or set of circumstances, it’s more of a “metaphorical theme” as the perceptual lens we look through that reshapes any number of situations to provide us with more of the same type of experiences. For example, the idea of “abandonment” as a type of experience that gives us the feeling we associate with being abandoned, can take place any number of ways through various situations and circumstances. This isn’t based on a situation or event itself in the objective sense but is formed by how we interpret it make it “mean” we’re being abandoned. As we continue to harbor and play out the memory of being abandoned, we form an expectation around it that acts as a form of “intention”, while simultaneously producing semi-unconscious natural behaviors that act to provoke and instigate it in a subtle and indirect way. We unconsciously produce the same type of behaviors and attitude over and over that ultimately cause us to be abandoned. All without realizing what we’re doing, because it’s operating primarily at the subconscious level where we’re only partially aware of what we’re doing.

Two Minds

We tend to live and create out of a primarily unconscious state due to the fact that we don’t realize our mind has “two aspects” that perform different functions in creating the same unified reality, and we don’t know how to operate them in an intentional manner as the means of producing specific types of experiences. The conscious aspect of our mind has the ability to shape ideas into pictures in the imagination that serve as a metaphorical concept for giving the subconscious a creative directive for adapting and molding into our existing reality. As we hold an image in our mind and define it with sensory details it acts to stimulate and give rise to a corresponding emotion in response to it. The emotion that couples with it animates it with life and determines how it expresses in forming a particular type of experience. As we vibrate an idea on the inner planes it becomes the organizing principle for shaping the outer plane to be a mirror image of it. The subconscious is the aspect of our mind that’s a part of the collective unconscious and group mind of Nature that forms and regulates all life on Earth. Any idea formed in the imagination and vitalized with sensation, gives our subconscious a “request” and a metaphorical pattern for producing as an outer experience. The subconscious produces the energetic substrata as a matrix of crystalized light on the inner planes that forms a vibratory frequency out of which all material phenomena is organized and held in place. Our conscious mind of outer awareness then perceives the reality formed by the subconscious out of its own thoughts.

Once we form a direct awareness around how we’re using our mind to shape our reality as a reflection of our thoughts about it, we can begin understanding the importance of monitoring and paying more attention to what we consistently think about and the memories we dwell in and consistently replay on an ongoing basis. The only way to change your experience of yourself as a reality is in changing the “story” you’re always in the process of telling by how you interpret the ordinary events of life. As long as you continue to tell yourself the same story about your life and why you’re the way you are based on “what’s happened to you”, then you’re going to continue to create the same type of experiences as your past. The very basis for “transformation” and “spiritual regeneration” comes by learning how to tell a different kind of story. Once you realize that you have the power to create yourself to be whatever it is you want to be, and you acquire the formula for reprogramming yourself using your imagination, your life experiences take on a whole new meaning, and you’ll begin engaging enthusiastically in your own spiritual journey with a sense of creativity and artistic freedom.
