Energetic Imprinting, Conditioning, and Dynamics – Liberating your Soul from the Unconscious Tendencies that Bind You

Our soul is comprised of essence as memory that comes from the relationship it forms with the body, which resides in a predominately unconscious state, and how they work together to create experiences of reality. The subconscious mind of the body also runs off of memory which it uses to form repetitive and habitual patterns that produce a consistent and congruent version of reality. What we call â€œrealityâ€ is produced as both an inner imagining and the outer, complementary correspondence of whatâ€™s imagined. The subconscious is passive and receptive in nature, meaning it has no will or ability to discriminate and make decisions of its own based on reasoning, and simply takes in ideas from the active, willful mind as suggestions that it forms into thoughts as a sensory reality in the faculty of the imagination, which is where all reality as an outer projection is born and fabricated out of essence (astral light or photons).
The soul bonds to the body through the memory inherent in its DNA, which is of a similar and compatible nature, capable of providing the soul with the corresponding reality of its memories so it can continue fashioning itself by way of the experiences the reality provides. The memory, as the essence of the soul resonates with the ancestral memory of the body, and enters into it as an active force that animates and structures it, giving it life as the ideal home or material vehicle for the soul. All levels of consciousness exist on a hierarchical plane, where the lower is always subordinate (passive) to the higher one (active), and provides the form or shell for the higher force to inhabit, bringing it into an active state of expression and creation within the material realm. This hierarchy of consciousness exists as spherical fields nested within greater and smaller fields, all of which vibrate within the same frequency as a range of vibration and lend themselves to the creation of the same type of nature and level of reality.
This level of consciousness that acts to naturally produce and actively play a role in a common (shared) reality forms a whole or singular dimension thatâ€™s structured by a dynamic interweaving of an infinite number of vibrations, all with a common core of information that act as their building blocks. All reality in this sense exists within an even greater reality as a unified dimension, where unique formulas of common elements are shaped by the individual mind to form an original version as a variation or possibility. The archetypal world of pure consciousness exists as archetypes in their potential state as what we might call generic templates. Archetypes manifest by undergoing a process of adaptation and reformulation that modify and reshape them into a new form thatâ€™s still indigenous to the greater, shared reality in which theyâ€™re birthed, maintained, and used to express at the individual level of self-creation.
As the soul resonates and bonds with the body, forming coherence as a harmonious vibration that creates in a spontaneous manner, it acts first to reform and establish the psychological patterns of its memory as a predisposition, temperament, general attitude, and tendencies that make up its personality, then those same patterns as dynamics are played out through its conditioning, because the memories of the parents are of the same nature and dynamics of the soul, as a form of â€œgroup memoryâ€ (soul groups). As these dynamics continue to play out and we have a role in them, weâ€™re further trained and conditioned to those dynamics as behavioral patterns that have a theme as a story-line inherent in them.
In an attempt to make sense of the events of our life and the dynamics that weâ€™re actively a part of creating, we begin telling ourselves a story about them. This story makes them mean something, and itâ€™s the meaning as a story-line that we become imprinted with as a dominate and habitual tendency. This means we readily perceive it and participate in it in an unconscious manner without any direct awareness or realization of what weâ€™re doing and why. We donâ€™t realize that all of our experiences are subjective in nature, meaning weâ€™re the ones that are creating them by how we interpret events of our life to give them meaning, and so we imagine that life is happening â€œto usâ€ in an objective manner and we have no control or say so about it. Yet, though we canâ€™t control the events of our life (necessarily), we absolutely have full control over how we choose to experience them.
What we call reality comes as a cohesive series of events that take place outside of and around us, and how we â€œexperienceâ€ those events, while they may seem like two separate ideas, are in fact correlated correspondences of each other. The outer, objective, abstract, and neutral reality thatâ€™s common to all of us as a form of shared or mass consciousness provides the stage and the means for organizing it in such a way that we experience it in a consistent manner through the story weâ€™re always in the process of telling ourselves about it. This story as an interpretation makes it into a personalized version of reality as our own creation that weâ€™re then subject to (it determines us).
We reshape our outer reality based on personal feelings, tastes, and beliefs. We view it through the paradigm of our mind (soul memory) and we reformulate it through our emotional state to match it. We reshape it to be of the same nature as we are where it lends itself in a complementary manner to naturally tell our story about it. As we create our experiences of things, we simultaneously get a sense of ourselves through those experiences, identifying with our own creation, and shaping ourselves through the memory it provides that becomes a part of both the subconscious mind of the body and our soulâ€™s essence. Weâ€™re constantly forming and in-forming ourselves through the experience of our own creation, by taking what exists as a â€œuniversal ideaâ€ and using it as a thematic template for creating a â€œpersonal versionâ€.
Our formative conditioned patterns are established through the â€œthemeâ€ as a life dynamic thatâ€™s being played out all around us that we play a role in and are an inherent part of. While we play a certain role in a greater dynamic as a child, we are in fact â€œimprintedâ€ (unconsciously programmed) with the â€œwhole dynamicâ€ and every role thatâ€™s required in order to act it out. Whatever role weâ€™re not actively playing in the dynamic is being demonstrated for us by others, and we actively engage in it through our relationship with the greater whole and our constant interaction and participation in it. These dynamics are created in several areas of our life at the same time, based on the same general theme being played out in different ways through different types of relationships. How weâ€™re treated as a child in a situation, is of the â€œsame natureâ€ (behavioral dynamic) as how our parents treated each other, our siblings, relatives, and all other relationships they maintained and participated in, where only the roles they actively played changed.
The relationship between our parents (or guardians) thatâ€™s being openly demonstrated and modeled for us in the normal sense, becomes the same â€œrelationship dynamicâ€ we play out in some form or another in our adult romantic relationships. As a general rule, we typically become one of our parents and marry the other one. Whichever parent we identify with most and align with in terms of playing the same role, we play most often, yet we unconsciously play all roles in the dynamic as a general theme. For example, if one parent is always criticizing the other one, putting them down and sarcastically belittling them somehow, and the one being criticized responds with a particular behavior (lashing out, retaliating, equally belittling, being hurt, crying, outraged, angry, or running away, etc.), that same parent will have a tendency to treat the children the same way as a general rule, and theyâ€™ll respond in a like manner to how the other parent responded (according to whatâ€™s being modeled for them to imitate). Whatever we witness going on around us is being modeled for us, and as children we tend to learn by imitating whateverâ€™s being demonstrated for us as a relationship and means of â€œappropriatelyâ€ responding. The same â€œpatternâ€ as an overall theme is being played out in a variety of ways with every relationship within the family, based on the theme both parents share in common and the behavioral dynamic that naturally issues forth from it.
If weâ€™re used to being criticized as children, weâ€™re attracted to (naturally respond) and seek out relationships of various kinds where that same dynamic is shared and can be played out faithfully in a natural and automatic fashion. We initiate and provoke the pattern, regardless of what role we play just through the nature of our interaction. For this reason, because itâ€™s unconscious, we often have no idea weâ€™re doing it, and so we imagine weâ€™re innocent and once again itâ€™s being done to us, instead of realizing that weâ€™re the perpetrator. If weâ€™re used to being criticized, we have a tendency to also criticize others (though we may view it different), and naturally produce the behavior that warrants criticism. We can do this intentionally through a reaction to being criticized ourselves, or as a way of retaliating and getting even by switching roles. Even when we respond by turning inward, crying and becoming meek, weâ€™re lashing out in our thoughts and criticizing or despising them to the same degree or more that we feel criticized. Yet often, when weâ€™re doing the criticizing, we donâ€™t see it that way, but rather as just giving them back their own medicine or giving them â€œconstructive feedbackâ€. We feel justified to respond in a like manner, usually without gaining any recognition whatsoever of the overall pattern thatâ€™s being played out at the unconscious level.
When something exists in us at the unconscious level, which all of our automatic, habitual behaviors do, they serve to form the very basis of our perception, our emotional states, and what memories we use to interpret things to give them meaning through the story we tell ourselves about it that describes, explains, or justifies it, forming how we experience it. Because theyâ€™re a normal and cohesive part of our perception and way of experiencing reality, we believe theyâ€™re real in the objective sense and we have no ability to change them, because we donâ€™t realize that weâ€™re actively participating in creating them. We donâ€™t know how to see something different because weâ€™ve perceived things that way our whole life and it comes natural to us. The experience is spontaneous and comes in a natural and automatic fashion without any awareness of choice or will being involved.
So the first challenge is to be able to become aware of our own tendencies by recognizing the behavioral dynamics as a theme that weâ€™re playing a natural part in thatâ€™s of the same dynamic that we grew up with. This can often come with us realizing weâ€™re having a tendency to say the same thing and act in the same manner as our parents did. By developing our ability to self-reflect and focus on our own feelings and motivation, instead of always focusing on the other person, while recognizing what memories are being triggered through association that are of the same nature, we can begin realizing what exists in us as a tendency that weâ€™re either unaware of, or only partially aware of. We have a natural tendency to always focus on the â€œother personâ€ by thinking almost exclusively about how theyâ€™re being and what theyâ€™re doing â€œto usâ€, then our whole approach becomes how to â€œchange themâ€ so theyâ€™ll stop doing it. Yet even if they were to stop doing it, we would act out in an unconscious fashion to provoke it in them as a way of keeping the pattern going because we donâ€™t know how to play a part in another type of relationship.
This is because weâ€™re not only conditioned with one role or position in a pattern or idea, but with the â€œwhole patternâ€ and behavioral dynamic of which we can play every role, whether through an aware state or an unaware one, because every role in that dynamic was constantly being modeled for us, and we were either the one doing it or watching it be done. Whatever role we identified most strongly with we continue playing out with awareness, and whichever one we didnâ€™t, we continue playing out unconsciously. Because we build our identity out of the experiences this dynamic provides, we not only keep it going in an automatic fashion, but when we get into situations where itâ€™s not being cooperatively played out, we donâ€™t know how to act or what to do, and so we unconsciously initiate it and provoke the proper reaction in others that sets it into motion. Once itâ€™s set into motion and begins playing out, weâ€™re in our element, and we have an automatic â€œscriptâ€ where we know exactly how to be, what to say, and what to do.
When we live our life out of perceptions of our conditioning, we live from a primarily unconscious state that simply acts to repeat patterns as themes (karma) in every area of our life, over and over. This habitual state of mind forms the â€œlife dynamicâ€ that produces the experiences that become our soulâ€™s memory as our essence, character, and constitution. Our soul is developed through accumulated memory attained through the body and how it identifies with it. The more of a certain type of memory we accumulate, the stronger and more stable the pattern becomes, trapping the soul at an unconscious level where it often fails to realize it has the ability to become consciously aware of unconscious tendencies, and through that awareness, dissolve the pattern, freeing itself to create in new ways by making new decisions that produce brand new experiences.
The soul not only possesses the higher capacity of consciousness necessary for self-creating, but it also exists in polarity to higher planes of consciousness, where it acts as a medium between the upper and lower regions, and serves as the passive aspect of the active higher will, which is capable of impregnating it just as itâ€™s capable of impregnating the imagination of the subconscious mind with an idea that it turns into a material reality. Habitual patterns only continue to play out when weâ€™re unaware of them. By utilizing the witnessing capacity of the soul to realize the unconscious patterns being played out, they no longer take place in an automatic fashion, because our very perception changes through the awareness, and if we begin engaging in the same tendencies, we catch ourselves and realize what weâ€™re doing and why. We can learn how to realize our own part in things by dissociating from our experiences (not â€œin themâ€ having them from an internal perspective) and viewing them instead from a detached and objective state. When we view our life from a second or third person perspective, we view the events from a distance (as another person would) and see ourselves not as the main character in our movie, but simply as one character in a greater story, and we can see ourselves in a different light as simply playing a role in acting out a common story.
Once we become aware and fully conscious in our life, no longer reactive and bound to habitual mindsets, weâ€™re free of them and have the ability to make conscious decisions instead. Through our ability to choose who and how weâ€™re going to be, what qualities weâ€™re going to take on and express through, we begin creating ourselves in a more novel and unique manner. In this way we break free of the karma as unconscious states that dominate and bind us to a mindless process of creation, and we become fully empowered in our own life. The minute we decide to stop doing one thing as a natural response and role, we have to decide how weâ€™re going to be and what weâ€™re going to do instead. All habits are dissolved and transformed through awareness, choice, and replacing them with new patterns that create in a more intentional manner through a fully awake state.
