Forming a New Perspective, Personal Responsibility, and Developing Mental Fortitude

While many people are stressed out and engaging in the attitude of pointing fingers and blaming what’s happening on someone else, this world situation is in fact the culmination of our collective mindset as a whole. Instead of looking for someone else to blame, how about if we instead take an attitude of being responsible for our own destiny and what our responsibility is at a personal level of how we live our life. If people are falling apart and can’t handle the anxiety of what’s happening at the world level right now, they won’t stand a chance if things end up getting really bad. All of life exists for the purpose of allowing us to reap what we sow, and in doing so be able to perfect our ability to create. Life on Earth is a school for our soul where we learn the lessons our own self-created experiences have to teach us.

In times when we experience some of our greatest challenges, we’re also provided with the opportunity to develop our mental abilities to a new and higher level. It’s only when spiritual forces are “active within us” that we have the ability to work with them in order to transform ourselves to new and higher levels of self-awareness and mastery. The minute we feel as if we “know something” in terms of higher knowledge, we’re tested through a life experience that requires us to utilize it in the practical sense as a means of creating. It’s only through our ability to apply higher knowledge to create our experiences and how we handle ourselves in extreme situations that we truly “attain” knowledge. Real knowledge isn’t contained in the ideas themselves, but in the realizations that come from the experience of them as practice.

The only “belief” higher knowledge requires is a belief in our self in being able to utilize it as the means of growing and transforming ourselves by way of it. All actual knowledge comes as “knowledge of yourself” through realizations born out of your experiences. We only “know” what we can do and demonstrate naturally in how we’re being at any given moment. If extreme situations cause us to relapse and fall back into our usual way of thinking and acting, then we haven’t learned anything at all. Talk is easy and doesn’t require much from us in order to proclaim, whereas it’s our actions that truly define us while showing us in very clear terms who we really are.

If we look at what’s going on in the world right now as a phase or aspect of a much larger process, and we take our primary focus off the coronavirus itself, and look instead at what caused it in terms of worldly human activities, we can begin seeing all of the things that ultimately culminated to produce a global event. If we take an attitude of being willing, and perhaps even interested in not only listening to and considering opposing viewpoints, but seeking to actually understand them, it can broaden our perspective and provide us with new information on greater problems being denied by some sectors, while being passionately promoted by others. Most of our problems on both a personal and worldly level stem from constant forms of division, and the problem of division is not going to be solved by serving to create more division.

When we come together as a group, community, or society, and we choose to focus primarily on our differences, we set out to prove our point of view as being right by making others who disagree with us wrong, and of course that’s always a problem. Whenever we focus on what we imagine makes another person bad, wrong, or deficient somehow, allowing it to shape how we talk to and treat them, we actually act to “bring out those traits in them” and strengthen them through the nature of the interaction. If, however, we approach any situation by looking for what we have in common and what likes we share, and we work to connect and build our relationship through those, we create a sense of unity and teamwork that benefits everyone involved in the best possible way. Whatever qualities we work to keep in an active and expressive state, is what determines the type of reality that’s co-created as a group experience.

One of the most basic psychological facts that people can have a great deal of difficulty understanding is that “all” ideas are patterns that are called into existence through complementary opposites that oppose and thereby stimulate each other. Anything you actively “fight or argue against” you’re acting to antagonize and give life to by keeping it in an active and progressive state. When we refuse to see another person’s point of view on an idea, and consider it in a thoughtful manner in order to relate or recognize its validity, we steadily narrow our perception and become closed minded. We become pigeon-holed in our perspective and world view, and we close ourselves down to any new possibilities that might result from it.

The only way to “change a belief” is to introduce new information and way of seeing that undermines, contradicts, or disproves it. We seldom ever realize that the greater part of our outwardly perception is based on and formed out of our belief-system. Many people separate out beliefs as this belief or that one, imagining them to be independent of each other, when in fact beliefs, like the mind and reality itself, is an Eco-system that’s a part of a greater whole. Whatever our belief is about something is supported, validated, and confirmed in a congruent manner by our beliefs about everything. This is how they’re maintained, because they’re self-perpetuating, self-sustaining, and serve to prove and promote each other.

While many of us understand the idea of personal karma is, at least in the most basic sense of what it is and how it operates to create in our life, we can often fail to realize that personal karma is played out as groups, and is perfectly correlated with family, society, culture, race, and worldly karma. What’s now happening at the world level of humanity is allowing us to see what “our” karma is as a collective. While many profess “oneness” and post what seems like profound quotes around the idea that we’re all one in the essential sense of the idea, the moment pressure is applied and things appear to fall apart, they’re often the first ones to become defensive and lash out in anger and frustration, and begin neatly dividing people into sectors of “good guys” and “bad guys”, and then mercilessly engage in the stoning process. People can resemble rats in the sense that when a rat becomes overly stressed, it’ll begin chewing off its own leg. Being able to handle whatever stress and anxiety life brings is an essential practice in developing mental strength and fortitude. The weak minded begin falling by the way side pretty early on, and will probably need to be carried the whole way by someone stronger in order to survive.

If we step outside of this opinion or that opinion, and we look at the big picture from as many different perspectives as we can in order to understand it in a more in-depth manner, we can find the common ground in the global situation that’s similar for everyone. I’m not referring to the virus itself and the debate around whether or not it was man-made and intentionally set lose as an agenda of some kind, I’m referring to the effects it’s creating that are obvious to anyone paying attention, and how viruses originate to begin with. While many constantly argue as to whether or not humans are causing, or certainly speeding up global warming and climate change, due to the reduced human activity brought on by the virus, many parts of Nature are cleansing and healing from our toxic waste and selfish behaviors. This fact is self-evident throughout the world, and is not the result of someone’s opinion.

All viruses in the most basic sense, especially flu viruses, are contracted in humans due to consumption of infected animals. This virus, for example, is thought to have originated in bats, rodents, or reptiles, which are a natural part of the Chinese diet. We are currently in the process, as a worldwide practice that’s commonly accepted across the globe, of raising animals through an “industrialized process”. Industrialized food production mass produces animals through incredibly cruel and bizarre practices conducted in filthy diseased ridden conditions, as the means of meeting the “demands” of a grossly over-populated world whose primary diet is meat. Our Eco-system has been breaking down since the beginning of the “industrial age”, and is now on the verge of collapsing. People are currently dying in large numbers due to the diseases, illnesses, and multitude of cancers caused by the food we eat, consuming the flesh and blood of tortured, suffering, abused animals, while most people choose to completely ignore what’s going on. In many cases, even when they become aware of it, they’ll choose to keep doing it.

We’re all being saturated with dangerously high levels of electromagnetic fields of radiation and microwave energy, which is reshaping our neurology and molecular structure, while killing birds and insects by the millions, causing many to lose their ability to spatially navigate and migrate, yet only a few people are concerned enough about it to be actively doing something about it. We’re experiencing a worldwide surge in mass extinctions of both plants and animals while very few people seem to be paying attention, probably due to the fact that it’s not being shoved in our face by the media, or they simply don’t really care. We have passed the tipping point on using natural resources faster than they can replenish due to a grossly over-populated world of eager consumers, yet people are still having 3, 4, 5, or more kids while clinging to their constitutional rights to have kids. We’ve completely lost trust in our government and world leaders, and spend a great deal of time attacking, ridiculing, and belittling the very people trying to bear the burden of public gossip and hatred in order to try and remedy the problem for the very people attacking them.

The media has now become the greatest power in the world and has proven they can shape the reality and mindset of public opinion any way they deem necessary in order to serve their personal agendas. The people we see as culprits are often only puppets on the stage of life put there to distract us from what’s really going on right in front of us. There’s no more need to conduct business behind the scenes, it’s all taking place right out in the open while people are simply being trained to “not see it”. We’re literally being taught what to see and what not to by the media. People will usually support whatever idea circulating that allows them to maintain their beliefs and lifestyle, and will deny anything that will require them to make changes of some kind or have to give up something they considered valuable and enjoyable.

Honest citizens that come forth to try and make us aware of what’s really going on and the secret agendas playing out in a cover manner, are mercilessly persecuted by the very people they expose while the people they sought to free stand passively by in a dumbfound stupor, confused on what to “believe”. All without seeming to realize it’s not about “believing”, it’s about waking up to what’s going on right under your nose that you’re willingly participating in. People abandon those who serve to reveal the truth because in order to stand up for them they’d have to “give up” what they’re doing that’s participating in its creation. We all know what’s going on with all the surveillance and monitoring, we know everything we’re doing is being tracked and calculated, but we don’t want to give up use of the very devices that we’re paying for that’s allowing them to do it. The grand scheme is to produce the devices, fill them with little perks, charge a ridiculous amount for them along with an absorbent monthly fee so we can transcribe, record, and video tape ourselves for them.

The lesson to be learned from “martyrs” is that they’re never killed by the people they sought to expose, they’re ridiculed and discredited while on public display instead so that the very people they sought to enlighten are the ones that actually persecute them. They become scapegoats. You can’t depart knowledge to someone incapable of receiving it. There’s no such thing as trying to “wake someone up”, because all awakening only comes through the realizations born out of experience. The only responsibility any of us have in life is waking up ourselves. No one can do our work for us. It’s not someone else’s job to try and make us see what we refuse or are incapable of seeing. The process of awakening only comes through effort. It’s up to each one of us to save ourselves within our own life, and to save the life of the planet through the same activities. We can’t sit back waiting and expecting someone else to do it for us, we have to care enough to realize the changes we need to make and then decide with a sense of dedication to make those changes even when it means losing something we have come to value and depend on.

So the question that’s really at hand right now, is what it is you’re noticing about the world situation in its current state, and in what way are you acting to support it by participating in creating and sustaining it through your daily lifestyle? One of the most basic powers each one of us has at the world level is “consumerism”. Whatever we buy, we finance and make possible. These massive corporations only gain control and prosper because we’re buying what they’re selling. Whatever perverted practice a company is involved in as a means of producing a commodity, we also morally engage in the same practice by buying and utilizing that commodity. They only have power over us by working through our ignorance and lack of moral willpower. Select entities only gain control of the masses by appealing to their emotions and working through their weaknesses to cultivate dependency.

If we learn how to neutralize our emotions so we’re not affected by them and we work on ourselves to transform our weaknesses into strengths, we can no longer be controlled by the will of others. Sensationalizing and dramatizing ideas is a tactic that’s designed to stir emotions into activity while planting the idea you want them to continue developing in their imagination through the emotions. This is a very basic and extremely effective psychological tactic. All realities formed out of emotional states are illusions that become neurosis of some kind. All solutions to the global delusion being orchestrated right now will only come from the rational soul of higher consciousness. A problem can’t be solved by the same mind and perception that’s acting to create it.

Whatever we do on a personal level simultaneously affects the collective level, because we all share the same subconscious mind and destiny. The answer isn’t to go out and try to change the world or recruit people to your way of thinking and perceiving, it’s to form your own realizations from a sober mind that’s based on actual awareness around things, and make the necessary corrections to your own attitude and daily lifestyle. You have to cultivate your own consciousness through personal detachment and viewing things in as objective a manner as you can and use that mindset to direct all of your activities, regardless of what others are doing.

If you truly protest oil production, then reduce your use of petroleum products in as many areas of your life as possible, including plastics and pharmaceuticals, which are also petroleum based. Learn to walk your talk and practice what you preach. If you don’t like the severe animal abuse currently going on to provide “cheap food” for the masses, then raise your own, buy from local people where you can see the conditions they’re being raised in, or choose to quit eating meat altogether. If you’re against GMO’s and toxic chemicals being used to raise mass crops, learn how to grow your own food, buy only organic from trusted sources, or do business with your local farmers market. If you’re aware of the damage being caused by cell-phones and electromagnetic fields, reduce or eliminate as much activity using these devices as you can. If you’re truly aware of the fact that your  every move and conversation is being monitored, recorded, and tracked through the internet, go back to methods of living that don’t require or rely on these devices.

Whatever it is that you “see” as being the problem, regardless of what it is, be willing to make the changes necessary in your daily lifestyle to remedy it. Hypocrisy is a detrimental act that you’re spiritually responsible for. As a soul and spiritual being you are 100% responsible for what you create in your life through your actions. You can’t blame anyone else or think somehow that the solution to the world problem is someone else’s responsibility and not yours. You can no longer sit back scared waiting for someone else to do something about it. We have to cultivate the mindset of “being the change we want to see in the world”. Nothing changes until we change it.

Use this incredibly valuable wake-up call to become aware of everything that’s happening on a global level, instead of only focusing on what the media wants you to focus on. Comply as much as possible in order to deal intelligently with the virus itself, while also allowing yourself to realize what changes need to be made in terms of the bigger picture, and commit to making those changes personally. Everything in the world is only sustained through our willing participation in creating it. Every purchase you make is a statement about the kind of world you want to live in. Corporations can’t exist without faithful consumers.

Our soul’s destiny is determined by the consciousness we faithfully employ and consistently develop through our attitude and actions. What we “say” is meaningless if it’s not backed up in everything we do and stand for. Turn inward during this time of reduced activity and let the outer awareness correlate with your inner awareness, and let realizations about your self and what you’re acting to cooperate in co-creating through your daily activities, and commit to making the changes you deem necessary in order to align yourself with a higher ideal and more conscious way of living.

How to Consciously work with Subtle Energy

In order to work with an idea at the practical level we have to form a working concept of it that serves to illustrate the laws involved as a relationship and the natural processes that ensue from it. Subtle energy is not a “thing”, but rather the invisible forces that are drawn into living organisms as its consciousness. Our physical body is a magnet for absorbing energy around us while simultaneously projecting and transmitting it. Subtle energy is a form of primal consciousness that has natural attributes and qualities inherent in it that form the physical characteristics and natural behaviors the form takes on and outwardly displays.

We’re always in the process of exchanging consciousness as subtle energy with everything around us as a primary means of adapting to and becoming one with the very environment we exist in. The acquisition, integration, adaptation and modification of consciousness, comes through a basic form of energetic respiration. When we reside in a primarily unconscious state, we absorb energies from the space around us that act to influence us mentally and emotionally without our direct awareness. This phenomenon is usually experienced as a shift in our mood and how we feel, often without realizing what’s causing it. As our mood changes so do what we focus on, think about, and what behaviors we naturally display.

Everything in the phenomenal world can easily be influenced, directed, and modified by working in harmony with the universal laws governing them. All subtle energy, which is invisible and non-material in nature, is directed and manipulated through mental means. Whatever plane something exists on, we have to work on that same plane or a higher one in order to influence, direct, and utilize it. We don’t ever need a material device, talisman, or symbol in order to work with energy, because these only have the power we give them with our mind as our intention and reason for using them. Inanimate objects don’t contain power in and of themselves, but are infused with power through “magnetism”. These tools merely act as an aid for focusing our attention on an idea as a means of concentration.  In order to work with our own mind as an energy system, we have to look at what we mean by both the mind and subtle energy.

The Nature of the Mind

Our mind is not of our physical body as our brain or heart (or anything else) but is the essence as the energy field that surrounds, envelopes, and permeates the body while extending quite some distance from it in subtler and less dense forms. The material body is magnetic in nature (passive and receptive) and only acts to draw in and serve as a container for the consciousness that it resonates with. The mind is synonymous with the soul and is the primary means for self-creating and regulating the vehicle of the body. The mind, like the soul and reality, is threefold in nature, which means it has three complementary aspects that function in different ways and on parallel planes to create what we experience as a unified, coherent whole.

The three aspects of the mind are most often referred to as the Higher or Super-conscious (will), and the subconscious (sensational) and self-conscious (formative) mind. The Super-conscious exists on a higher plane (as an invisible power), and the other two aspects of the same mind exist on the material plane as complementary opposites. The subconscious is the aspect of the mind we share with all of Nature due to the fact that we incarnate into this plane through a mammalian body that’s an integral part of the collective unconscious that also forms the “mass consciousness” of humanity. The subconscious is constantly involved in an energetic exchange as a form of telepathic communication with everything around it that’s of the same or similar nature to it (through resonance).

The subconscious is motivated by emotions that are designed to produce unconscious (automatic) behavior as a form of instinct. The subconscious is also what produces material images in the imagination that serve as a kind of “empty shell” (ethereal body) necessary for energy to inhabit and give life to as a means of expressing through. Just as electricity exists as an invisible force in the atmosphere around us, and can only be harnessed (captured) and directed through a material form of some kind, subtle energy can only be harnessed and directed by utilizing a material light-form as a fluid container that’s shaped inwardly by the mind. Once shaped inwardly it becomes a metaphorical template used to produce and equivalent outer reality.

All material substance as light-essence concentrated into an organized material form is magnetic in nature and acts to “draw in” the active, life-giving force of archetypal intelligence. Whatever form is shaped internally as a structured thought, determines what type of energy it acts as a vehicle and instrument for. As subtle energy inhabits and expresses through a complementary physical form it produces an equivalent outer effect as the reality of the form. We can work directly with our subconscious by mastering the principles that govern it. We imagine a “form” as an internal representation or working concept that becomes a magnet and acts to “draw in” and harness subtle energy that can then be directed to perform a function of some kind as the fulfillment of our “intention”. We then infuse this imagined image with an emotion of some kind (motive), it acts to either attract energies of a like nature, or repel energies of a dissimilar nature.

The subtle energy of the material plane is invisible to our physical senses and is known to us directly as feelings, inner sensations, and emotions that give rise to mental impressions when allowed to take hold in our imagination. Whatever is “received” and pictured in our subconscious is simultaneously projected into our outer mental sphere where it can be “witnessed” by our self-conscious mind as a form of thought or idea. The subconscious acts to translate energy as a vibratory frequency into the pattern and image inherent in the vibration (transducer). All vibration as activity organizes essence (light) into the pattern as a living form inherent in the frequency on different scales and levels simultaneously as both an inner and outer reality of the same nature and likeness.

When we “sense” the energy that’s being actively expressed by someone, we get a feel for their consciousness as an emotional state and the unconscious activity that’s naturally produced by it. Their energy is drawn into our body where it acts to stimulate us with sensations of a distinct quality, which makes us feel a certain way. People with “bad energy” are usually consumed with negative emotions that serve to drive their thoughts and behaviors to produce the experience of their emotions as an actual outer experience. When we’re around them and involved in an interaction of some kind, we exchange energy subliminally and it causes us to feel bad in the same way (transference). Subtle energy is both electric (projects) and magnetic (draws inward), and works through the principle of vibration and polarity that forms corresponding, complementary realities as a unification between the inner and outer, and between the self and another.   

Developing a Working Model of how Energy Operates Subliminally

By developing a working concept in our mind of how subtle energy works we can simultaneously develop methods for working with it in the practical sense. Whatever state we’re in, we vibrate at as a frequency, and act to vibrate that same state in everyone and everything around us. As we resonate with “like energies” in others as a shared emotional state, our energy “enters into” their mental sphere that permeates their body, and activates those same emotions in them, bringing them to the surface where they’re actively expressed to produce a joint experience.

After only a few seconds of interacting, we both begin vibrating in harmony with each other and form a joint-reality as the expression of the shared emotions. In a like manner, whenever we’re around others, whatever emotional state they’re actively expressing is being radiated and projected into the space around them where it’s magnetically drawn into our mental sphere and then enters our body where it stimulates us with the same emotion and we begin outwardly displaying the same types of behavior. As we take on their emotions and allow them to begin actively expressing through us, it modifies our state into a complementary one where we begin feeling, thinking, and acting the same way. This all happens energetically as an unconscious and automatic process where we’re unknowingly allowing ourselves to be created and therefore determined by others.

The Method for Controlling your own Energy

The two most effective means that I’ve found for controlling and regulating your own energy as your state of mind, is by first setting the intention to do it while simultaneously realizing you can (believe), then either imagining a protective sphere around you that’s reflective and mirrors back energy to the sender, or that acts to neutralize the energy by polarizing yourself to it. Once you set an intention to become more aware of the energies operating around you that are unconsciously affecting you, and you form a working concept in your mind of “how” they’re operating to enter into and produce an effect in you, you can direct the energies through your awareness alone.

Imagine a sphere around you as an invisible globe that creates a form of translucent screen, where vibrations as emotional energy don’t penetrate the barrier, but spread out on its surface instead, much like a movie where you can “see” the nature of the energy by “witnessing” it. This will allow you to see both the inner and outer nature of it simultaneously without allowing it to enter into your body and produce an effect. By learning how to sense it from a distance while emotionally detached from it, we can “see it” as the reality it contains where we can consciously “decide” if we want to let it in or not.

By keeping it outside of your body and not letting it “effect you” by causing a reaction, you act to neutralize it. Whenever we don’t share in the emotions being projected, and we don’t serve as the means of becoming the “effect of a cause”, we act to “cancel it out”, and energetically subdue it. If we let it in and allow it take hold, and begin actively expressing the same emotions, then we serve to amplify and multiply it. As long as we remain unaware of what’s actually happening, we reside in an unconscious state and absorb energies automatically. As we unconsciously absorb the energies being projected by others, we allow our mental state and actions to be regulated by whomever we exist in near proximity of. We “lend our will” to creating whatever reality we’re being seeded with as an emotional charge.

Self-awareness and the ability to consciously operate your own mind is the “magical secret” to immortality. As long as we remain unaware of the nature of energy and how it operates in the natural world, we’re subject to automatic processes that we seem to have no control over. Once we become aware of them by creating a concept of how they work, we can begin working with them in a deliberate and precise manner. We can sense the quality of the energy being projected by someone by how it’s affecting us emotionally, and then intuitively discern it as a means of deciding whether to allow it to produce a like-effect in us, or to deflect it and send it back to them. This is all done by imagining it.

If we absorb and give life to the emotions being projected by others without realizing what we’re doing, we act to propagate them while allowing them to alter our state and determine our behavior. If we reflect them back by preventing them from entering us and don’t act as the means for expressing them, we serve to neutralize, disintegrate, and nullify them, while maintaining control over our own emotional state and actions. We learn how to become fully responsible for our own creation.

In a similar manner, we can notice how some people act to energize and enliven us, while others drain us and make us feel wiped out. The most natural way people drain us by “feeding off of our energy”, is through attention seeking that elicits sympathy. They behave in ways that are designed to give them attention, usually by complaining, whining, going on and on about their problems, criticizing and belittling others, acting helpless in their own life, or doing whatever it takes to get you to feel sorry for them. Sympathy is the most natural way we tie into other people’s energy and act to feed off of it.

It’s wise to always pay close attention to how you’re being mentally and emotionally affected by others and life-situations, and use that awareness to make your decisions regarding them. Where we tend to falter is when we take an attitude of attempting to somehow change the other person or situation, instead of working to change ourselves and our relationship with them. People who drain us, depress us, or stimulate us in undesirable ways by always trying to draw us into their dramas, can only do so if we let them by cooperating. It’s always up to us as to what relationships we enter into and continue to maintain, and what situations we choose to keep ourselves submerged in, and what activities we willingly participate in as a result. Self-awareness and skillful action is the secret to creating your life in an intentional and precise manner.

Humility – Dissolution of the False-Ego and Masterful Liberation of the Soul

What has historically been called the “ego” may be more correctly referred to as the “false ego”, because the term ego is synonymous with “identity” and is used in many spiritual texts interchangeably as meaning the same thing. Our identity is formed by whatever we associate with, and how we enter into relationship with everything else as a means of creating our experiences. As we create experiences, we simultaneously sense ourselves within or “as” those experiences, and we relate and identify with them. This doesn’t mean that we “are” our experiences, but rather that we are always the one creating ourselves by way of our experiences, which we also create as the means of self-expression. While we only have a limited control over the events of our life and other people, how we “experience” those events is something we have complete control over. What we call our personality is an aspect of the “lower mind” that comes more as our natural way of being, regardless of what role or position we hold, and our identity arises naturally out of our personality when we go out into the world as young adults and begin naturally falling into certain roles, social or professional positions, economic classes, begin acquiring material possessions, and maintaining relationships of various sorts. Our personality is something that comes in a completely natural and unconscious way as the natural expression of our subconscious mind, whereas our identity is formed when our self-conscious mind starts coming into play at puberty, when we begin separating from our parents and exercising our will by “thinking for ourselves”, and we begin taking an active role in our own self-development.

       Our identity is not something to be killed, shed, or let go of, but rather to be used as the tool it is for evolving ourselves through our natural ability to self-create through relationships and who and what we associate with. When we form our sense of self through our body by believing that we are a body, a real basic form of mistaken identity takes place, where the soul perceives itself as the body, and thereby “bonds” itself to the mortal life of the body, which lives a short period of time, then dies. Everything of the material plane is temporary, transitional, passes away, and exists as a basic form of illusion or dreamlike state that the soul partakes in as the means of self-creation. Our perception of what we call reality, is a product of the mind which acts as a transducer that turns a vibratory frequency into a holographic (Imagined) reality as a form of virtual simulation. Our perception and experience of reality is a product of the mind as fractal patterns played out on multiple scales and magnitudes simultaneously, creating a cohesive inner and outer reality of the same nature, character, and thematic story-line. Vibration has an auditory and optical aspect inherent in it and propagates through space as a wave of potential that has a self-organizing mechanism inherent in it as sound or words that divide and form an electromagnetic field as a holographic image of the ideas the words represent. Words contain ideas that are imagined as forms that produce a 3-D structure of that same idea on multiple scales as greater and smaller versions all interlaced and interconnected to form a biological system that produces a consistent experience as a background and setting for an idea to be played out by a character as a thematic story. Whatever vibratory frequency we exist as serves to completely produce the reality (both inner and outer) of that idea as the means of the soul experiencing itself within its own virtual creation. When the soul “forgets” or fails to realize it’s creating its own reality as a form of self-expression produced out of accumulated memory, it begins associating itself with its own imagined experience, and becomes lost in an illusion of its own making that’s attached to a linear time-frame.

       When we build our sense of self out of material things as a form of false-ego or mistaken identity, our ego as our soul dies (has the experience of dying) with our body and the dissolution of the material world it existed within. Once the body dies, leaving the soul without an identity, the soul remains within the Earth’s astral plane that it has become “one with”, and is left to seek out another body in order to create and know itself through or as a body. The ego identification with our material existence bonds the soul to the material plane as a form of “bondage”, or being held captive in a cell (cells of the body), as a prison of its own making. While in the material world all things exist as an established or created form of some kind, whereas in the spiritual world, all things exist in an energetic state as the potential for an “idea” or archetype without form, and is what serves as the basis for creating a form as its twin or reflection. When we become identified with material ideas, such as our race, gender, physical appearance and looks, ethnic background, family dynamics and ancestry, economic status, possessions, positions we hold, roles we play, our self-made image, and so on, we form ourselves out of something that can be lost, taken away, laid to ruin, or used to control us. We become determined by others and our life conditions, circumstances, and situations. When this happens, everything we built our life out of and around begins falling apart, and it throws us into a state of turmoil that produces a deep sense of insecurity and foreboding fear that can diminish and devastate us at the most primary level of our being.

        Once illusions are shattered, forming a kind of major life-transforming crisis, we come out of it seeing clearly what completely eluded us before. Things and people we believed in are no longer real, and the reality we thought we knew can no longer be felt or seen, and we become a stranger in our own life, unknown even to ourselves. The pain of loss can crush and diminish us, and the feeling of disdain weakens us to a point where it can seem almost impossible to recover.  Appetites are ravishing and seem relentless while inside we’re starving. We painfully crave all that’s past, and a deep sense of remorse sets in as we plummet into the unknown depths of despair and loneliness, sinking well beyond the point of return. We literally have the experience of dying to our own false ego and self-made delusion. In a state of sheer humiliation and moral disgrace, with all power from the outside cut off and no longer available, if we are to survive, we have to begin drawing on a different source. We then begin drawing on an internal source that’s active and always alive within us. Intimately real as an all-pervading and inclusive feeling that’s never lost, diminished, or taken away, and as we detach from the illusion of our perceived material needs, peeling the outer layers away, revealing the emptiness inside, it begins growing in intensity, softly whispering words of comfort, and we turn to it out of sheer desperation and begin drawing on it as our only means of sustaining ourselves through the darkness that has consumed and annihilated us. A new awareness of ourselves starts coming into play through the intimate embrace of a higher power that we’d lost or forgot, and we feel strangely more alive and vital than ever before. We are no longer affected by other people’s perception of us, or their opinions and behavior towards us. We no longer see or evaluate and appraise ourselves through the eyes of others, but instead sense ourselves as we really are inside. We lose interest in fame, being popular or well-liked, we have no more need to be accepted as a part of a group or supported by others, and we begin living in a much simpler and stream-line fashion. We gain a clear and immediate realization around what’s essential and what’s not, we lose our appetite for excess and waste, and we begin operating as a neutral force in any situation without the need to control or manipulate as a means of fulfilling a need as an agenda of some kind.

       As we consciously begin reconstructing ourselves out of a new sense of awareness, we no longer form our identity based on other people or material things. There’s no more need for illusions as a way of embellishing an imaginary self-image, and everything takes on an objective, “matter-of-fact” quality, where there’s never an emotional reaction to it. We become self-centered in who we really are as a soul, and we easily maintain clear realizations around the true nature of things, and seldom have an attitude of needing to get something by exercising control over others and situations, because we’re exercising control over ourselves instead. In what seems like a quickening as a complete shift in awareness, we become morally purified in the most basic sense and serve as a neutral force in the world that works in any situation for the good of everyone involved, instead of to personal means of some kind. For this reason, higher knowledge can only be accessed and absorbed by the humble. Those without pride or arrogance, greed or envy, that won’t be tempted to use it for personal gain or power, and will instead serve as a clear and pure channel for higher powers to flow into the lower regions of consciousness and illuminate it. A state of Being where we are fully identified with our divine nature that’s universal and powerful in an all-pervading, self-contained way, drawing all its power from within, and serving to neutralize the emotional energy as the magnetic, motivating force of the material plane. It’s the realization of being in this world, but not of it. Only then does the soul reside in its true domain of complete liberation from self-inflicted pain and the moral suffering that death on the lower planes brings. The path of initiation begins with death of the false ego which is necessary in order to birth the Higher, Universal Self within the lower, animal body, which the soul merely uses as an instrument and vehicle for actively expressing and self-creating within this domain, without losing its identity by mistaking itself “as” the body. To be an Initiate requires self-mastery as the ability to control the elements of the material world, which only comes by not being controlled and determined by them. The Initiate has to master their own emotions, realize the habitual and impulsive tendencies of the body driven by instinct, and the habitual patterns as dynamics being played out by soul as karma of some kind, while intentionally acting on themselves in a deliberate manner to dissolve and resolve the old, while initiating and giving life to the new. To self-create in a conscious and deliberate manner is to take on a position of being the initiator or “cause” of fundamental change by reprogramming the body (subconscious mind) to be a suitable vehicle for the Higher Soul, instead of letting the body degrade the soul to the status of a beast (animal driven by instincts) by taking control of thoughts and creating reality out of emotions that produce insane and perverted delusions, bonding us to the pain and suffering in a hell of our own making.

The Mark of the Beast – “666” and its Encoded Significance as a Mode of Operation

I began this idea through research I was doing on DNA transformation by studying the law associated with its geometric structure. DNA is composed mostly of Hexads (6) with linking Pentads (5). DNA transformation in a completely natural way involves the very operations indicated by its structure (and the structure of most molecules and both living and non-living structures), which are “mind-over-matter”, and “equilibrium”, with equilibrium representing the result of mind-over-matter by balancing the conscious and subconscious , or using the conscious to direct and re-inform the subconscious. Five and six are considered a symbol of marriage as both consist of the female term (2) and the male term (3) in the mathematical formula of 2 + 3 = 5, and 2 x 3 = 6. All mathematical formulas represent relationships as an operation between all aspects of the formula as interrelated laws and principles.

All of life on the material and subtle planes operate in polarity as the masculine and feminine aspects that serve to stimulate each other and work in unison to produce a material form or reality as their offspring. In thoroughly considering the number 6 in all its possible correspondences and meaning, I wondered why the “Mark of the Beast” was represented by three 6’s, and got the intuitive notion to study its symbolic significance in Revelations. What I discovered was that Revelations actually provides a formula for undergoing the process of personal transformation and what type of things we unknowingly engage in that prevent it, or act instead to degrade us and lock the soul within the body in what you could call a “dead or forsaken state”.

To lay out the formula of just the 666 equation, we have to look at the significance of all numbers and factors involved. 6 is repeated 3 times, representing the 3 aspects of the self as higher, medium, and lower, which, when in an equalized state work as a single unit in a synchronized fashion between multiple planes. 6 + 6 + 6 = 18, the number of the subconscious mind (Tarot), with 1 (Monad) and 8 (Octave), representing moving to a higher or lower state (scale), the process of 9 (1 + 8 = 9) as a completion of a cycle and self-perfection. Six is typically thought of as the number of “love” (marriage of the masculine and feminine), and is represented in the Tarot, the key to the Kabbalah, as the “Lovers”. The idea of Lovers represents the relationship that should exist between the subconscious and conscious aspects of the same mind. The mind, like the soul (they’re synonymous), the self, and reality (produced by them) exists as 3-part or 3-fold in nature, and exists on three levels or planes as interwoven dimensions simultaneously, represented by multiples of three as 3, 6, and 9. With 6 representing the “medium” of the middle soul, which acts as a “bridge” between higher and lower levels of consciousness, as well as representing the single mind (material) existing as polar or dual aspects on the same plane as the subconscious and conscious mind of the body, which simply perform different modes of the same operation.

Our lower self is typically referred to as our animal nature as a mammalian body, or “beast”. Our lower self exists within the material plane as both our subconscious, instinctual and emotionally driven mind that we share with the entire animal kingdom and all of nature, and our self-conscious mind, equated primarily to “brain consciousness”, which is fully birthed within the material plane and becomes fully identified with it as what we call the “ego”. Both aspects of the lower material mind form our personality and identity, and operate for the most part in a completely automatic and instinctual manner through the memory of our species, our DNA ancestry, souls constitution, and formative conditioning as basic training that shapes the mental paradigm we live the rest of our lives out of and create our own unique version of a shared and common reality.

Our lower concrete mind of our animal-beast nature is instinctively driven through emotions that serve to produce automatic behaviors that don’t require deliberate thought and reasoning, or the need to make a decision, or exercise will in purposely acting it out. It’s motivated primarily by the experience of pleasure or pain, thinks in pictures and imaginary experiences, and is passive and receptive in nature, which means it readily takes in whatever “suggestion” is being given to it (by a will), and uses them to form all of its thoughts as imaginary realities that give it a kind of template or idea for manifesting outwardly as an actual experience. It moves and thinks in a spontaneous, impulsive, and urge driven manner towards anything that offers or suggests pleasure of any kind, and freezes in it tracks or avoids anything that resembles pain. Yet emotions of all kinds, positive and good, or negative and bad, are magnetic in nature, and form the basis for all natural thought processes and activities. The subconscious lacks a will of its own, and therefore doesn’t have the ability to create in a unique and individual fashion, and simply creates out of whatever is given to it as an idea, or by repeating habitual tendencies, mental patterns, and routines based on memory. It acts like a computer program and only performs behaviors, functions, and dynamics it’s been programmed with.

The number 6 as love, exists as the Principle of Polarity, represents not only by the relationship between dual aspects of the mind, but also between parallel planes, which together form a singular manifestation of reality as the means by which consciousness uses to express and experience itself “as” something specific. The symbol is represented as two triangles, orientated in opposite directions that equally overlap each other or exist as parallel aspects within the same space or plane. It represents how the mental plane casts images into the astral plane of emotion which “in-forms” and fashions the etheric body, which acts as a spatial map or holographic model and energetic matrix for the physical body, which it produces as its twin or offspring through a form of regeneration. There’s a dynamic interaction always going on between multiple planes as a form of step-down process where invisible ideals as archetypes become interpreted in mental and emotional terms to form the basis for manifesting its physical correspondence within the material plane of form.

Thoughts as astral images and sounds are cast into the subconscious mind, providing it with directions and information for operating the mind and body of the lower plane in exactly the same way instinct develops natural tendencies and behaviors natural to the kind, type, and species, in the animal kingdom. When people choose to live out of an unconscious state, never waking up to “who” they actually are as higher, intelligent and willful beings, they lend their will to the creation of other people’s ideas, or whatever is popular and heavily promoted as a fad or current of society. This is the group mind that behaves in a “herd-like” fashion that performs and participates in whatever its being conditioned to do by passively taking in other people’s thoughts and making them their own. They become a product of society, a slave to the greater will of mass consciousness, and run automatic patterns as thoughts, emotions, and behaviors in a routine, systematic, and faithful manner, while participating in a cooperative manner to co-create the realities they imply.

When we reside in an almost exclusive unconscious state, we are influenced and motivated by the magnetic forces of the astral plane that we experience as emotions and passions. We’re tempted by anything that offers pleasure of some form and that doesn’t require much effort (use of will), and create ourselves and our life out of a predominately unconscious state where we draw consequences on ourselves that degrade, defile, and devolve our soul to a lower, animal status. We lack any real awareness of truth as creative laws, and exist in a fundamental state of ignorance. We have no idea how to use our own mind and will to create by way of law in an intentional manner. Six gives us the formula for not only bringing our subconscious and conscious mind into a unified and balanced state within the material plane, but also our higher consciousness as our human soul and lower consciousness as an animal soul, which is automatically governed through the higher will as the active impregnation of the lower mind with a seeded suggestion. This process of the Higher Will seeding the lower mind is carried out through the Pineal gland as the “3rd-Eye”, which is also the 6th Chakra of the subtle body as the “mind’s eye” that forms a unified vision instead of a dual one like the physical eyes do.

The Pineal gland, a barrel, pinecone shaped organ that’s composed of a hollow interior filled with fluid and floating crystalline structures, receives more blood-flow (essence) than any other organ of the body except the kidneys. Though it’s located directly in the center of the brain between the two hemispheres of the left and right lobes, it’s not a part of the brain (originates in the roof of the mouth and migrates to the brain), and isn’t protected by the blood-brain barrier, and so it’s prone to various forms of toxins which hinder its performance. The fluid substance of its inner core gathers mineral deposits as a form of “brain sand”, similar to the enamel on your teeth, and eventually forms into a bone-like mass called “calcification” that causes it to stop functioning properly. In our modern day society our Pineal is being outright targeted through various means designed to cause malfunction.

The Pineal, in collaboration with the Pituitary body, is the part of the body that acts as a tuner and receiver for higher forms of consciousness that exists outside of and beyond the astral plane, and for this reason is also considered the “seat of the soul”. Six is the number that represents the human soul, as the medium through which transmission and reception of consciousness takes place between upper and lower planes. The Pineal is thought to be where the soul enters and leaves the body (top of the head), as well as maintains a direct line of communication and passage from higher domains. The Pineal is often referred to as the “star-gate of the body” (6 being a star), as the first place contacted by the “waters of spirit” and the non-physical realms of the afterlife that forms what we have come to call the axis or tunnel (axis mundi), that the souls moves through and into higher dimensions. It’s the connecting link between the human and the divine, between the Higher and the lower. The Pineal secretes a resin (pine) that’s amber color known in spiritual traditions as the “golden elixir”, with resin being analogous to “risen”. The pinecone is symbolic of seeds that are opened and released through heat and pressure (inner light) that serve to birth new realities as the offspring of the Mother/Father.

The Philosophers Stone of alchemy and the Holy Grail of Christianity – is the awakening of the Pineal as the symbol of perfected and regenerated man (9) who is Divine in nature and birthed fully within an animal body of form through active use of the creative will. The Pineal contains the “waters of life” as the Chalice of the bloodline (soul’s essence), where only those of the Divine bloodline seek the knowledge of Higher Wisdom and through practical use of it, ascend to higher dimensions at the death of the body, which releases the soul from bondage of its dark, and unconscious animal nature. The Holy Grail is within the “domed castle” of the skull as our inner connection to higher dimensions. This creative process is given to us in the very beginning of Genesis with the statement . . . “The Word was with God, and God moved across the waters and called forth all of life with the spoken Word”. Words as ideas are conceived by the mind through the inner water of the Pineal, and turned into realities in the imagination (3rd Eye), which form the basis for creating a corresponding reality as a personal creation of a universal theme.

The Pineal is “awakened” or made active through the activation and rising up of the Kundalini, fife-force energy that normally lies dormant at the base of the spine in the triangle shaped Sacrum and coccyx (tail bone) in someone who is not awake. The life-force energy is awakened (through intention and directed attention) and magnetically drawn up the 33 (6) steps-vertebrae of the spine (Jacobs ladder), into the Pineal where it activates (excites and vibrates) the Pineal while simultaneously detoxifying it. The Pineal produces the chemistry (hormones) that regulate “light” as cycles and produces DMT as a psychedelic hallucinogenic that’s responsible for the inward vision as a parallel reality of our nightly dreams, and is how communication from the Higher planes are received through and as our dreams and daydreams, and are reflected in the subconscious mind as intuition, déjà vu, and intimate associations that link together multiple planes of awareness. The subconscious reflects the images received by Higher consciousness as imagined thoughts that allow them to be witnessed and realized by the conscious mind

The Mark of the Beast, as well as the “Name of God”, the Tetragrammaton as a formula for willful creation utilizing the subconscious of our animal nature, are both said to be written in our forehead, the location of our 3rd-eye. As the beast it represents an unawaken, primarily unconscious state of haphazard creation (instinct), and as the name of God, an awakened and fully conscious state of willful creation. There’s a massive movement in society right now, some deliberate, some simply out of ignorance, to calcify and disrupt the normal function of the Pineal gland through fluoridation of various kinds, carbonated drinks, high protein diets, heavily processed foods, microwaves, and various forms of heavy metal contamination. By hindering its function, it prevents communication as higher knowledge that we experience as “original thoughts” from being received and reflected in the imagination, and blocks or prevents the soul from leaving the body and material plane at death of the body. It literally cuts the soul off from the roots of its origins, trapping it in the lower planes of unconsciousness and ignorance. We have to protect ourselves by not engaging in the mindless activities of a basically unconscious society aimed at destroying the health and vitality of our Pineal and brain, as well as working through our Endocrine system to regulate our state of mind, biological processes and behaviors (hormones and imitation hormones).

Six as the Law of “love” within the material plane, says we have a desire for whatever we love and feel a connection to, and are always seeking union with it. Love is the principle of union between two complementary opposites that are of the same nature. Naturally, some of our most basic passions come from sexual desires and attractions where we bond and form an energetic, soul union with whatever we love, lust after, or feel passion for and have sex with. Love as desire, forms a gravitational field between us and the object of our desire. Whatever we blend with energetically, in mind and body, we become one with and the “same as”. We acquire their (its) level and quality of consciousness as the same character, tendencies, and morality. As we absorb and integrate the consciousness of others, it alters ours accordingly and forms our moral nature as being equivalent and of the same kind and type, and as a result, we “share” the same destiny. The most basic way we’re always in the process of creating ourselves from both a physical and spiritual perspective, is by whatever we blend (resonate) with in mind and body and become equilibrated by as a form of harmony (coherence).

One of the greatest and most prevalent ways we become degraded is through sexual misconduct and inappropriateness, and merging our soul with another just through the pleasure the activity brings without any awareness of what we’re actually doing (unconscious) or the moral consequences it brings in terms of our soul and vibratory frequency. When we can’t resist emotional impulses and the temptation of sexual arousal or being stimulated with pleasurable sensations, we fall into an unconscious state and create ourselves in a haphazard way through ignorance. The Law represented by 15, which = 6, is conveyed symbolically as the “devil” which is the Mythological god of Pan, presented as half goat and half man, with the animal half being from the belly button (solar plexus of emotion and identity achieved through emotions) down, including the regenerative organs, which is the energy we use to regenerate ourselves, and the head of an animal with two horns (divided mind), symbolizing our animalistic aspect that pursues passions and pleasures of the body in an unconscious, instinctual, and impulsive manner without any recognition or realization of what we’re doing and what it means about us. It’s creating out of our lower nature instead of realizing that we can command the body, neutralize ourselves to emotional states, and direct our own thoughts and imagination through the will and intellect of our higher nature.

When we feel and cultivate a love and desire for the spiritual plane of higher knowledge, and tune ourselves to that plane by identifying with it and embodying our true nature as creative and willful beings (divine), and we learn how to use our own self-conscious mind to intentionally program and willfully direct our subconscious mind through a loving persuasive attitude, we rise above our animal unconsciousness and the illusions born out of emotional states as hysteria, and we begin directing and working through the natural forces of the material plane to create in a deliberate manner. We can only utilize and control what’s not controlling and utilizing us. Anytime we’re being controlled by passions and impulses of some kind, we’re being determined by blind forces that take control of our mind and will, running us like an animal is run by instinct, and condemning us to a mortal state of ignorance.

What is Consciousness?

Like all words that represent ideas and concepts, the term “consciousness” can mean something different based on who’s using it and in what context they’re using it. One of the most fundamental ways that we miscommunicate without even realizing that that’s what we’re doing is by assuming that words mean the same thing to everybody. The true meaning of words are what image or idea forms in the imagination of the person speaking and using it to communicate an idea, and the person hearing or listening to it. We like to think that the dictionary gives us a standardized interpretation for words, yet this is still only meaningful for those who actually learn language from a dictionary. The dictionary states that consciousness is “being awake and self-aware”, yet we are also “awake and self-aware” in unconscious states of our dreams, though upon awakening and changing states, we can’t remember our dreams. Yet dreams, like all reality is created by our consciousness.

So consciousness can be more accurately described as a “state of mind” that produces the very reality that it’s then aware of. There are many different states of awareness and the realities they produce, so in the ultimate sense, these terms are relative to each other. What we call our reality is based on our state of mind, and varies according to our state of mind. We have what we call 3-minds (or 3 aspects of one mind) as a way of classifying not only different fundamental states, but also as the different functions that are a natural behavior of that state, which exist simultaneously on three different dimensions (levels of awareness), which are all an interwoven part of a greater whole, and function as a “single being” while remaining somewhat “unaware” of each other. The subconscious mind is continuously active (never sleeps) and runs all of biological processes of the body from the moment of conception until the death of the body. What we refer to as the “conscious mind”, which is attributed largely to “brain function”, doesn’t even become active as “individual thought that forms our concept of ourselves and the world” through our own thinking and perceiving until adolescence, yet we are fully “awake and self-aware” as children and as a baby, and even as embryos still in the process of developing in the womb, all of which are simply different “states of consciousness” and different “types” of awareness.

What we think of as memory is the product of consciousness and is also “state based”. This is very easy to understand when we simply realize that when we fall asleep (change states) – the self-conscious (awake) mind is the only aspect of the mind that sleeps (loses awareness) – making the subconscious the only aspect that’s still active and therefore dominant, and the only aspect creating reality. We dream by moving in and out of a variety of realities all night long with vivid and intense sensations and emotions, yet as soon as we change states and move from a relaxed state to an “active” state, we steadily lose memory of our dreams. Usually, once we’re up and moving around for an hour or two, even the dreams we initially remember fade to the point that we can’t vividly recall them, and we completely forget our dreams. So we live in whole realities as parallel dimensions that we’re basically unaware of in our “waking state”. Likewise, when we meditate, and we calm and subdue the conscious “thinking mind”, again making the subconscious dominant (because it’s always active) , we can have all sorts of insights and realizations that are very clear and vivid as a form of “direct experience”, and as soon as we change states and move from inner awareness to outer awareness, they slip away and we have trouble remembering them. When frightened, scared, overwhelmed, or having a traumatic experience of some form, though it’s intense and very vivid at the time we’re having it, as soon as it’s passed and we calm down and relax or change states, we forget the actual events that took place and only remember the feeling it gave us and the story that we began telling ourselves because of it. It’s not the actual events that traumatize us, but what we tell ourselves about what they “mean” that traumatize us.

Because what we call the “conscious mind” (awareness of an outer reality) is our waking state, the aspect that’s largely a function of the brain, and what forms our identity “as” our body and the outer material world, we tend to think that consciousness is a product of the brain and the result of the material world. Yet consciousness is what forms the brain (and the whole body) that it then acts to operate. All life forms, the human body and the brain, are designed and constructed out of primordial intelligence as information that has a “self-organizing mechanism” inherent in it that constructs life-forms from a seed of encoded information. This level of consciousness literally constructs the body that it then inhabits and performs all the “natural and automatic” biological functions of the body, which are attributed to the subconscious mind. It’s called “subconscious” because it operates fully without our direct awareness, and forms all of our conditioning as a form of training and development, laying the foundation out of which the self-conscious, brain aspect of consciousness as “thinking in verbal terms as a form of internal dialogue” begins. This memory, from conception till about four or five years old, which most adults have very vague or no memory of at all, can be tuned into and recalled fully through various state of hypnosis, which delves into the memory of the “unconscious mind”.

The subconscious mind, which is fully dominant up until the age of 7 or 8, then predominant from 7 to 14 (we develop in 7 year increments) establishes our formative conditioning which becomes the “perceptual lens” the developing self-conscious mind “looks through” to perceive the outer world as an “awareness of it”. How we perceive and interpret the outer world as a way of making sense of it and fitting it into what becomes our “story about things” is a direct result of the subconscious mind which “projects onto the environment”, or forms the energy field around our body (extending several feet away) that we literally use by “looking through it” to perceive outwardly what remains hidden from us (we have no direct awareness of) inwardly. So what we call an “outward awareness” is actually a reflection that’s allowing us to see what’s “in us” as our mental paradigm. Because we’re unaware of the subconscious mind as our paradigm or “mental model of the world”, we don’t realize that it’s what’s producing what we call the outer reality that we’re then using to classify the self-conscious mind as being “conscious and aware of”.

This becomes easier to understand when we realize that our perception of the outer world is based on our paradigm as a belief-system, where we can only “see” and cognitively recognize as being “real”, whatever matches our belief-system, and can be explained, described, and validated or justified using it. Whatever can’t or doesn’t match our belief system (model), we honestly can’t see, and so it doesn’t exist as “real” to us. It’s only by changing our mental model of the world (subconscious mind) that we’re able to perceive new and different aspects of reality, which of course were there all the time, but we simply weren’t cognitive of them. Again, all “reality” is a projection of our paradigm which is based on our state of mind as a vibratory frequency that creates a “filtering system” as a means of reorganizing the outer reality to make it appear a certain way as the expression or vibratory match to our ingrained or programed patterning.

Our belief system also acts as our primary mental filter, which edits all incoming information by comparing and contrasting the information to it, only allowing in or being willing to consider what matches it and can be logically, rationally, or reasonably incorporated into it. Because of this editing feature of the conscious mind, radical paradigm shifts can be difficult if not impossible to produce, and evolution as a form of transformation which only comes by way of a paradigm shift (change in the vibratory structure of the mind), can be an arduously long and slow process (as all natural evolution is). Many people, especially those who quit studying and learning after graduating from school and live out of the same knowledge base for the rest of their life, fail to grow at all in the real sense of the word, and live primarily out of their own opinions and the opinions of others that they accept an adopt as their own.

So when we look at it in this light and from this perspective, consciousness has as its vehicle the mind as a specialized field of information, and the mind has the physical body as its vehicle in order to express by creating personalized versions of reality within what we call the material plane. Consciousness is the primordial intelligence that forms all of life and the Life-Force Energy that activates and animates it with a systematic growth process and personality. It’s the very information that becomes the building blocks for all of life, that’s often referred to as the “unified field” of archaic ideas or the Akashic field populated with ideas in their potential form and the memories produced by all minds as the personalized expression of those universal archetypes that creates experiences out of the “reality” they create. We know that energy and matter are equivalents of each other and therefore exchangeable. Energy as consciousness is the same thing as matter, but in different states as “degrees of consciousness”. All of life, on all planes of existence, exist in a state of polarity as opposites that form extremes of the same thing, separated only by degrees of vibration. There are four primary “states of matter”: charged or electrified plasma (invisible energy field); gaseous (atral light); fluid (etheric); and solid (material body). Again, all are simply different states of the same thing. So the consciousness that “charges” or programs matter, organizes it into a living form that self-expresses forming an outer projection as a reality that’s actually an inner reflection. All forms as archetypes have an inherent “story” in them as the reality they naturally produce through activity of some form, which is what “Mythology” is based on. Mythology is a system of classification that correlates states of consciousness with a personality, identity, and destiny as the type of story (outer reality) it naturally produces and lives out of as a means of self-expression that’s also self-creative.

The information contained in a seed (a code for a design), is activated by an invisible Life-Force energy that stimulates and causes it to begin growing  through self-regeneration by duplicating itself (cellular mitosis), by absorbing and assimilating elements from the environment (earth, water, air, and sunlight), accompanied by a etheric hologram as a form of spatial map that not only “locates the cell within the body”, but also switches off some information in its DNA code, while switching on other information, causing the cell to become specialized as a certain type of cell necessary to become the heart, liver, or some other aspect of the overall body that it’s an inherent part of. The body is completely generated as a construction, organization, and living entity out of a mysterious invisible force. This same invisible force then inhabits it (exists as one with it) and gives it life as the mind. The mind of the body, which is an invisible force that both surrounds and encapsulates the body while permeating it, forms an egg shaped energy field that extends several feet from the body, interacting with (while ultimately producing) the outer environment in which the body forms its experience of living through an “outer awareness” of itself in everything else. The consciousness of the body, which we are both aware and unaware of at the same time, is what produces the reality of the body as a projection.

All reality as we know it is a creation of the mind and consciousness. All matter is organized into various forms and given life as varying levels and degrees of consciousness. It’s only through consciousness that we experience ourselves within the outer world of what we call reality. The outer world is formed (or reformed) as a reflection or creation of the inner (invisible) world. The subconscious mind, the level of consciousness just below direct awareness of the conscious mind, is the perceptual lens we look through that makes the outer world take on the appearance that it does. The same outer reality appears different to every mind that’s perceiving it. Perception is a personal creation as the unconscious projection of the individual mind. Out of a universal consciousness comes the individual consciousness as an archetypal matrix that forms one possible variation out of an infinite number of possibilities. The universal consciousness exists in a state of infinite potential, in which one possibility is expressed an made into a 3-D virtual reality by the individual mind, which by turning off some information while turning on other information, forms a specialized function in a greater living whole.

So consciousness is not a product of function of the brain, although the “self-conscious aspect” does arise out of the brain as a “brain-function” that’s really a state of consciousness “operating through the brain” to regulate and animate the body through the spinal cord, nervous system, endocrine glands, and major organs of the body. Consciousness is the universal intelligence as vibration that structures all matter as a dense aspect of itself into a living form as an avatar that creates a dynamic living matrix that we call the objective outer reality. Consciousness in various states as a dynamic interwoven system of vibratory frequencies all interacting in the same living matrix, is ALL there is. Everything in the material world is contained within the Universal mind as its creation. All of reality exists only through our ability to perceive it and conceive of it through our mind. In this sense, perception truly “is” reality.

The Self-Conscious Mind, the False Ego, and the most Basic Form of Ignorance

What we call the “mind” is three-fold in nature, as three aspects that systematically birth each other as outgrowths, all of which perform different functions as a unified being within a multi-dimensional reality. These three aspects of the mind are what we call the Higher-mind, the lower or subconscious mind, and the self-conscious or conscious mind. The Higher mind exists in a primary unified state and contains both lower aspects of the mind in their potential state. The Higher Conscious acts to birth the subconscious mind as it descends into material reality as the intelligence that constructs and then inhabits the body, which then births the self-conscious mind as a natural growth and development process. We are born into life with a subconscious mind that contains the latent potential of the self-conscious mind, which doesn’t begin forming until the age of seven or eight, and becomes fully active between fourteen and twenty eight. The self-conscious mind is what most think of when we use the term “mind”, and is the brain (grey matter) consciousness as the “thinking mind” that thinks in verbal terms as our internal dialogue. The conscious mind, for the most part remains almost completely unaware of the subconscious mind, which thinks in “experiential” terms as imaginary, sensory realities, and is the aspect of the mind that is fully awake throughout the entire life span of the body and operates all the biological systems of the body, without ever resting, sleeping, or turning off, unlike the conscious mind. The self-conscious mind is the brain aspect of the mind that’s fully identified with the body and forms our basic identity as what we call our “false ego”, and is what forms the most basic form of ignorance as a form of mis-identification. It’s self-aware in terms of body image and it’s perception of the outer world, and thinks almost exclusively in materialistic terms, but remains predominately unaware of the subconscious mind as its true nature and what serves to sustain it. The subconscious mind, which is the primal consciousness that fully manages the body while interacting energetically with the outer environment, is what structures and develops the brain and births the brain-consciousness giving it life, yet the conscious mind fails to recognize this fact because it doesn’t have a direct awareness of the subconscious mind, and so perceives itself as being independent of both the subconscious and higher consciousness of the soul. This aspect of the mind, being of the brain, is mortal and temporary in nature, because it’s identified with and dependent on the brain as an organ of the body, existing only as a concept of itself “as” the body, and so it “dies” with the body. This is the aspect of the mind that’s often referred to as the “ego”, when it should more accurately be called the “false ego”, because the soul develops and bonds itself to whatever it associates and identifies with, and is not only what spawns the body-brain identification, but has developed and formed through many identities and multiple lifetimes. Just as the subconscious mind is the same aspect of the mind we share with the plant and animal kingdom as a form of mass, shared, or collective unconsciousness, in humans, we have a higher capacity through the conscious mind that imbues us with the ability to shape our own identity by creating an “image” of ourselves, and thereby determining our own destiny as a form of co-creation within the material world. Through this ability to self-create and become an individual, we also form a part of the mass or shared consciousness of the creative, spiritual realm. Ignorance is formed from the basic sense of a lack of awareness that doesn’t comprehend its other, immortal aspects, and perceives itself instead as independent of its subtle, spiritual, or unconscious aspects which actually served to create it by birthing it, and sustain it throughout its lifetime. When we identify with our body and material existence through a basic form of a lack of awareness, we perceive death as an annihilation of the “self”, because it’s the death of our brain consciousness of the body as our outer awareness. If however we recognize the other aspects of ourselves that are subtle and subliminal in nature, and we identify with our spiritual nature that created and gives life to our body, we become immortal because this aspect of our consciousness is actually independent of the body and simply exits and “sheds” the body, which is what causes it to die. The body is only “alive” (operating as a biologically active system) when the soul is inhabiting it. The subconscious is birthed into the material body by the higher consciousness (from a purely spiritual plane), and is the immortal aspect of the self, and what forms the “life” of the body, and expresses through the body in a completely natural and automatic fashion as the most prominent use of will, that’s the natural expression of the Higher Will, being acted out without resistance of any kind, and is what establishes the personality of the body as the accumulated experiences acquired through various identities from previous lifetimes, as the souls “karma” that forms the “paradigm” of the mind and gives it all of its natural perceptions and tendencies. Karma is the natural paradigm of the soul as the mind (vibratory frequency), and forms our natural disposition, temperament, talents and developed abilities, tendencies, thematic perceptions, and natural behaviors as our personality, which are reactivated, brought out and expressed through our formative conditioning that sets the outer stage and mental state to continue creating our life through the same patterns as we left off in the previous life. The soul develops through accumulated experiences (which are all self-created) through many perspectives and life conditions, circumstances, and situations, that are integrated and harmonized to modify, develop, and reform the paradigm of the mind, and becomes the memory we continue living out of as a means of creating ourselves by way of our own self-created experiences (interpretations) that form the evolutionary growth of our soul as our eternal and immortal self. The conscious mind is simply the identity formed and taken on in this lifetime as a body within a certain set of conditions and circumstances that form the basis for our life situations, which we use to create our experiences out of. The conscious mind is the “material mind” in terms of its limited awareness (located within space and time) as the body. When it “wakes up” and recognizes that it has multiple aspects as states of being, and the subtle, intuitive communication as feelings and mental impressions coming from an internal and invisible realm of pure consciousness that its always engaged in “talking to and with”, it can then choose to align itself with its “whole self” as the expression of the divine will that created it. Through alignment with all aspects of ourselves we can become aware of why we’re the way we are in terms of our karma as tendencies and psychological patterns that we’re always in the process of repeating, we can act in our own life to resolve patterns by first becoming aware of them, gaining self-realization around them as our own creation, and then act willfully to transform perceptions, direct our thoughts and become conscious of our behaviors, in order to break old patterns, and form new ones that are more creative, productive, and healthy. Through self-awareness and active use of our will, we can become conscious creators and act to facilitate our souls growth in an intentional and deliberate manner, instead of continuing to live out unconscious patterns that are degrading to the souls evolution and keep us attached to lower forms of expression that ultimately prevent us from ascending to higher levels of self-expression. The conscious mind, through its current identity has the power of choice and free will to actively make changes and reprogram the subconscious mind by embodying new qualities that create new types of experiences of itself, but of course it has to realize it has this ability and begin actively participating in its own development instead of living its life in a predominantly unconscious, disconnected and haphazard manner.

How Intention Influences Matter – The State-of-Mind we’re in when we Handle and Prepare Food, Impregnates It

There’s always an interaction going on between Consciousness, Energy, and Matter

One of the easiest ways to really understand this idea is by recognizing the most basic law governing the relationship between energy and matter as passive and active aspects of each other, and vibration that programs substance with qualities of consciousness, which through resonance, sympathetic induction, and coherence alters the state of the material object being “inhabited” by consciousness. Primal matter doesn’t have any “life” of its own, and only lives by way of the consciousness that first constructs it into a physical form which then serves as a receptor or vessel for it. Consciousness infuses matter with a program as patterning (vibration) that it acts as a carrier or vehicle for. Matter has the ability to “take on” and store information as intelligence of the consciousness it comes into contact with it, is being  transferred into it through touch (handling) and mental projection (what you’re feeling and thinking), or of that which exists in near proximity of it as a form of transmission. We have chakras or strong energy centers in the palm of our hands, that infused whatever we handle and hold with our consciousness as a state of mind.  Not only is the food we eat itself important in terms of nutritional quality, and the method used to prepare it (which further alters its chemical state), but also the “spirit or consciousness” of the person who’s preparing it, who transfers their consciousness into the food, and is “sensed” as a feeling impression or quality by the person who eats it. Just as we digest and assimilate the nutritional and energetic properties of the food, using it as building blocks for regeneration of our molecular structure, we also digest and integrate the consciousness it was impregnated with and acted as a vehicle for. All energy can be converted into matter, and matter converted into energy, through the same metabolic processes.

All senses, both material and spiritual, are interchangeable in terms of one being able to systematically produce the function of the others. Taste, for example, will also produce feelings, an inner hearing, and a mental impression or visual idea,  indicate a color, and so on. All attention or consciousness that’s directed into something by looking at it, thinking about it, and handling it with that quality of consciousness, enters into its material substance, which is a conductor and carrier of consciousness, infusing it, and “held in it” as a form of mental pattern or memory. So no matter what sense is used in handling, using, or eating the object, it invokes all other senses simultaneously, including higher senses, which all act together in a unified fashion to form the “consciousness of the object” in the mind of the person consuming it and taking it in as part of their consciousness. Matter acts as a vehicle or carrier for consciousness as spirit (invisible), which readily moves into and through it, infusing it, and impregnating it. The food contains the mental attitude and “state” (quality of consciousness) of the person growing and caring for it, handling it in the harvesting and market, the intention being employed when selecting or purchasing it, and of the person that handles it as a means of preparing it.

Food prepared while in a loving state, provides a feeling of love and pleasure for the person eating it. Food prepared with resentment, anger, or dislike or lack of enjoyment (drudgery), is also taken in and digested by the person eating it. The state of mind you’re in when you prepare the food becomes the spiritual component infused in the food, and becomes a part of the state of mind of the person eating it. We’re influenced by the “feeling” in the food as we eat it, which is sensed through an inner experience of a sensory nature (idea as its essence), that comes as an imaginary mental impression. What we “hear”, is wholly identical with what we taste, smell, feel, and visualize as a thought, internal concept or idea. In the spiritual sense of the mind, which exists in a unified state where all things are interconnected as a continuous part of everything else, and as the means of perceiving and experiencing everything in the material world, all things exist nested within each other and systematically unfold “out of each other”. So whatever material sense is dominant, it acts naturally to birth all other senses through a natural process of unfolding into a complete idea as the expression and representation of the consciousness living within it.

Plants are neutral and void of higher levels of consciousness, and exist as a passive receptor, and so their essence is programmed by higher consciousness as an intake process. Whereas an animal possesses higher forms of consciousness as a personality with natural behaviors and tendencies, and so in killing and eating the dead flesh of an animal, we acquire or experience internally and take on the consciousness of that animal. We absorb it’s essence through its blood infused meat, and take on its state of mind as an influence or subtlety, as well as acquire some of its actual DNA.  Blood, as plasma, which is the same thing stars are made out of, hold things together in a charged state as the essence and qualities of consciousness infused in it that make up its character which dictates how it behaves. The act of killing an animal infuses it with that intention as an experience, which saturates its blood stream with the hormones produced by the experience of being killed while desperately clinging to life. Hormones are chemical regulators that form emotional “states” that produces natural behaviors of that state, while regulating the biological processes of the body through that same state of mind and behaviors. As the hormones in the blood stream saturate the muscles and organs of the animal, infusing them with the stress of the fight or flight response as a form of anxiety, when we eat the hormone saturated flesh, we absorb and assimilate the same chemical messengers along with the animals essences as a quality of consciousness, and take on those same states and types of behavior as applied to our species, level of consciousness, and life circumstances. Ultimately, what we consume and metabolize, we become the same as in both the material and spiritual sense.

The attitude that we walk through life with impregnates material nature around us with that same quality of consciousness, which it “holds” and acts as a carrier or vessel for. We “infect” matter with our consciousness, which then continues to influence everyone connected with it, or in near proximity to it, as well as re-infecting ourselves. This is easy to understand in terms of distinctly sensing the vibes people put off as their energy, or walking into a place where you can distinctly sense the energy of the place as the consciousness and activities of the people inhabiting and operating within it, that are what give it the “feeling it has”. If we pay attention, and stay present within our life experiences, we realize that we have a pronounced ability to sense the energy emanating from all material objects, whether living or not. The energy emanating from living bodies, have a kind of “signature” to them in the sense that they possess souls as a level of individuality or active properties that give them distinct form, characteristics and behaviors. Though plants aren’t “animated” through a regulatory process of nerves, hormones and neurons, they do possess active properties which produce a physical effect in our body by altering our chemistry. They simply don’t produce a direct effect on our mood, emotional state, or influence how we feel and behave (outside of producing a “clearing effect”). Plants have a neutralizing quality, and only carries the “mind-like” qualities of consciousness that it receives from those of a higher mind.

So along with the idea of not eating while in a bad mood, or experiencing a strong emotional reaction, you should also avoid handling and preparing food while in a negative state of mind, or while dwelling in an idea, thought process, or reliving a memory that’s born out of or that produces a negative emotional state. Food handled and prepared by those who love and take great care in preparing and cooking food, or that are doing it as a means of caring for those they love, is double nutritious in that it carries the feelings of love and enjoyment. In a like manner, plants of all kinds always grow better when people who love them are the ones caring for them. Plants that are in a house or living space, are infused with the consciousness of the people living in that space, and act as a recorder for emotional events that take place within the house. Modern technology has realized that lie detector probes can be attached to plants, much like humans, and when people walk into the room with them that are of various states of mind, that the plants actually form a reaction as a correspondence. Upset, ill will, angry or negative emotions produce a tense state as a strong reaction, while happiness, love, and laughter produce a relaxed and harmonious state. All of which can be measured and evaluated in the same manner as a lie detector test for a person that registers their reaction. While plants don’t understand verbal ideas or questions, they very much register the “state of mind” of the person asking the questions, as well as the people who are anywhere near them.

Intuition – Inner Knowing and Awareness of Spiritual Energy

three selves

Our intuition isn’t necessarily a skill or tool that we use at will, although it can be, but comes more as a basic way of perceiving and interacting with the world around us. It comes as feelings about things as a direct experience where we know about something without a logical basis for knowing or without learning about it through our life experiences. It comes more as an inner knowing, that’s connecting with the inner nature of everything and everyone around us. It’s more like a soul-to-soul recognition, that penetrates and sees into matter through the mental atmosphere around something that it’s acting to emanate. Our soul, which is synonymous with our mind, operates out of “inner senses” or spiritual qualities that sense the “inner quality” about things and ideas. It sees through matter to the spirit or quality of consciousness that’s embodied in matter, and expressing through it as a kind of personality or quality of being. We can directly sense and interpret the feeling attitude that underlies and forms the behaviors being expressed. What we experience intuitively doesn’t have anything to do with the outer appearance of something or how it’s being presented in terms of outward appearances, but always senses the motivation and true intentions by the feelings we get when in the presence of their energy.

This ability to communicate soul-to-soul and experience the true inner nature of something as inner resonance of some sort that either harmonize with their outer expression (appearance), or contrasts it, is how we recognize congruence as integrity, or a lack of it, that attempts instead to hide its real nature and intentions. Through this “inner recognition”, we can also learn to tell true knowledge from false ideas. We can know what’s real and what’s not, because intuition “about” something doesn’t operate out of logic or rationalizing, but out of the universal laws that are based on form, function, and order. Qualities of consciousness, which stimulate us through feelings and emotions, always reveal the psychology or idea being played out. The quality around something as the feeling we get from it, tells us whether or not it’s true, right, correct, honest, and so on. Again, this doesn’t come to us through a thought process about it or our own internal rationalizing, or whether or not we can explain it from a concept of it we’ve formed in order to somehow prove it, but rather as a clear feeling of knowing without knowing “how” we know, that either makes the idea compelling and we move deeper into it, or make it repelling, and we disconnect, change our focus, and move away from it.

universal consciousness

The question then becomes, how do you know the difference? How do you know whether or not you’re simply processing and perceiving things through your personal model, and either approving or disapproving of them based on your ability to logically understand it, or where you can’t explain it exactly, but you simply know it to be true, or acting as a form of inner guidance that’s designed to either move you into ideas or away from them. The real illusion often lies in the fact that while we think our ability to logically explain something or form a working concept of it is a good way to tell if it’s true or not, we’re always using our own “model of the world” to perceive and interpret ideas, which, chances are, is built out of a massive collection or errors that’s only capable of discerning through the same errors that we’re mistaking for truth or facts.

We’re always using what we “already know” to interpret everything else in order to “know it” by being able to perceive it through our current level of understanding. So anything that can’t be perceived through the same set of errors, can’t be meaningfully interpreted or “validated” as true using our model. Intuition, which is the perception of truth as laws operating within an idea, can be felt and known, without being able to explain or reason as to what you know and why. Because it perceives the inner nature and workings of people, things, and situations, as a recognition of their mental, energetic atmosphere, it’s always recognizing the truth of things. As soon as we try to explain why or what we know, we begin reshaping it to resemble the errors of our mental model, which is constructed primarily out of what we’ve been taught by others, and accepted as true, that we incorporated into our belief-system which becomes our perceptual lens.

As we come across “truth” as knowledge of some sort, using our intuition, which recognizes only the laws involved, we can tell by how it makes us feel in response to it, whether or not it’s true. All knowledge comes to us through a form of “seek and find” method as a pathway to knowledge or a chain-of-associated ideas that involves a kind of research as a form of treasure hunt. A search where we first have the desire in us for the knowledge as a form of connection, curiosity, or fascination, which involves us in the consistent activity of searching it out. We’re always noticing it and looking for it somehow. One avenue becomes an open door that feeds our curiosity, engrossing us with a deeper sense of fascination, wonder, and awe, and we find hidden clues within it, that when researched lead to whole new ideas of a similar nature that propels us on through an ongoing quest for knowledge that can often last a lifetime(s), never really subsiding or leaving us, but only taking us deeper into it while expanding the breath of knowledge attained through its interconnectedness to everything else.


It becomes, as the saying goes, “how far down the rabbit hole do you want to go”? Knowledge exists as layers that all interpenetrate each other, and form new insights through the incorporation of knowledge that modifies our paradigm, allowing us to see new things that we couldn’t see before. Through consistently evolving our mental paradigm through integration and synthesis of new types of information, we begin seeing life in a brand new way, and can readily see things that eluded us before or that we resisted and posed ourselves against as a result. Our logical, rationing ability as a way of interpreting things, is a produce of our mental paradigm

Intuition is how we perceive the world around us through its interconnection and wholeness. It’s the ability of the soul to penetrate matter and see directly into the spiritual essences of things as their “inner” nature. This same penetrating ability allows us to recognize the truth in all things, regardless of what the outer appearance or staged behavior is. Intuition moves us into things through an inner connection with them. It allows us to see the truths that reside in any idea or branch of knowledge produced by an individual, where certain aspects become illuminated with a sense of gravity towards them, and provide us with the seeds to continue our investigation allowing a whole series of interrelated idea to start unfolding, and we step into their secrets, wide eyed and filled with a sense of anticipation. Intuition makes learning a passionate pursuit where we learn about ourselves through the experience of learning about everything else. All learning becomes a personal journey back into the essence of who we truly are. We only “know” everything else as an “inner knowing” or form of intimacy (into me see). One produced by our authentic self in relationship with the authentic, though hidden nature of everything else.

Becoming more Conscious: Learning how to Listen to your Body


As a society, we’ve been trained to dwell in a vast sea of distracted thoughts and engage in a random, scattered and often in-congruent form of thinking as a part of our daily communications with others. We live the greater part of our life without ever being truly present within ourselves and our immediate outer reality. We look to other people’s opinions and experiences with things and adopt them as our own, often with complete trust that lacks the only form of validation there actually is, knowledge that comes to us through self-realization. The only way we can truly know if something is “true” is through the experience of it.
Our body is always in the process of communicating with us. It’s always responding to the energy around us and how it feels, to what we just ate and the manner in which we ate it, and to what we’re dwelling in as the thoughts that prevent us from being self-aware, and keep us instead always residing in the detached space just outside of our body, and remain, for the most part, completely unaware of how we’re feeling. Yet our body is always in the process of interacting with the world around us in numerous ways, and is always providing us with immediate feedback, all we have to do is learn to calm our mind, focus our attention inward, and become aware of how we feel at any given moment.
While our body is most responsive to our own thoughts and imaginings, which actually act as a natural form of self-programming, it’s also giving us a constant form of feedback on the energy that exists in places, being radiated by people around us, about the emotional state and underlying agenda’s of those we’re interacting with, the quality of the air we’re breathing, and the food we just ate. Our body, which is also our subconscious mind, is a lot like a bio-electric antenna that’s always in the process of broadcasting, receiving, and processing information that exists all around us that we’re always interacting and exchanging energy with at the subtle level that lies just beneath our normal awareness.


The mind is the electromagnetic field that surrounds, envelops, and permeates your body, shaped like a large revolving sphere of energy that pulsates in a rhythmic flow much like breathing. It unfolds and extends out into your immediate environment and forms resonance (magnetizes) with whatever is of the same vibratory frequency (within an acceptable range) or inner nature as we are, magnetizing and attaching it, then enfolding and sending the information back into our core where it’s “sensed”, and the complementary aspects of the information being received that can be readily conformed to our existing model are synthesized into the overall system, altering it slightly (or sometimes drastically), shifting our frequency as an adjustment, which becomes a new emanation of the slightly altered frequency and any obsolete information is then discharged or pulsated outwards, using some to magnetize new information while discharging others, releasing it to be recycled. This constant flow and exchange is how the inner atmosphere of the body is always being adjusted to match the outer atmosphere as the most basic function of evolution.
This same process of digestion and metabolism that the physical world is always undergoing, also governs the energetic realm of the mind that’s largely thought driven. Just as the molecules of the air we breathe becomes the molecules we use to build our body at the cellular level, which is in a constant state of regeneration, the energy as consciousness that exists all around us, is being magnetically digested and assimilated to regenerate our energetic matrix as our mental paradigm. This usually happens without our awareness because it’s subtle and gradual in nature and comes more as “feelings” that have an emotional quality to them, and when taken on, stimulate those same emotions in us, creating the ideal conditions for their complementary thought-forms. Sometimes this is so subtle that we don’t readily recognize it, and at other times it’s quite pronounced and produces an emotional reaction that can be quite volatile.
The other reason it can seem so subtle that it goes unrecognized is because many people are consumed with the thoughts running through their mind that have nothing to do with what’s actually going on around them, and the imagined scenarios as story lines they’re always dwelling in that render them virtually unconscious to the present. While many bodily changes may be taking place in response to the energy around them, they’re so caught up in the body sensations taking place in response to their own thoughts, and so they fail to recognize them. Because of this tendency to be constantly distracted with thoughts that don’t pertain to the present, much of the information our body is sending us goes ignored, until of course a state of emergency is reached and the body begins communicating in a different language, the language of physical pain, designed to get us to stop ignoring it and pay attention because a crisis is developing that could result in a life threatening event.


The primary difference between the two complementary aspects of the mind, is that the subconscious-body mind, doesn’t perceive “time”. It’s not distracted with imagined realities that aren’t actually real. The subconscious is always present, always aware of what’s actually going on in its immediate environment, and making adjustments accordingly. It doesn’t create imagined realities of the past or the future that it lives out of in place of the actual present reality. The subconscious is always present, experiential in nature, and emotionally connected to everything around it. It’s interacting with the “actual reality”, and is what produces automatic behaviors, that we do all the time without thinking about them.
The conscious mind is the verbal, language oriented, thought driven aspect of the mind that’s always distracted with its own thoughts about things that hardly ever have to do with the present moment. It’s the “living in your head” thing that most people do that exists “in time” (past and future), and is living an illusion in place of actual experience produced by being present. These thoughts and imaginings, usually as replaying memory, or projecting memory into the future creating a similar scenario as a prediction that forms an expectation of what’s to come, also act to provide the subconscious mind with a form of substitute reality that it perceives much like an actual reality, that programs it by providing it with a form of memory as actual information about the environment that modifies it in preparation for that reality. We are literally always in the process of programming ourselves through our imagined thoughts.
The imagined states we live out of as obsessive thoughts act to keep us prepared for that reality as an expectation that becomes our perceptual filter. The mind, which extends quite some distance from the body, is always gathering information from the environment and sending it back to the body, so the body can “prepare” for what’s coming. It adjusts to the perceived environment that it exists and needs to survive within. By closing down our obsessive thoughts that aren’t of the reality in the present, and turning our attention inward to our body, becoming aware of all the sensations and how we’re feeling, we can use our body as a means of measuring and interpreting everything around us in terms of how it makes us feel. We can sense whether we feel relaxed and calm, being stimulated with a distinct emotional sensation, or stirred with an inner turmoil, or have a sick and queezy feeling as an adverse reaction to something. While our body doesn’t communicate with us in words as verbal language, it does operate according to the law of analogies and correspondences, and if we concentrate on a feeling sensation in our body while in a passive mind-set, a natural mental impression will form as a reality associated to the feeling, which is a form of metaphor for understanding the nature of what’s causing the sensation. Our inner feelings are always interacting with the “inner nature” of everything else, and so reveal to us their “true” nature as their energetic constitution, regardless of what their outer appearance is like.


When we become present in our life, form an awareness of our body and how we feel, we can use our body as a gauge or a form of navigation system. We can begin to realize what produces a “good effect” and what produces a “bad effect”, and what that’s telling us. We can realize the quality of consciousness present in different environments, in other people, in our relationships, in the air we breathe, in the food we eat and the water we drink. Our body is always giving us feedback about how things feel. All we have to do is become present in our body, form a relationship with it, sense and feel what’s happening within us, and use that information as a guide for what to do and what not to do. Our body let’s us know what to increase and have more of, and what to decrease or eliminate all together. It serves as a guide for what relationships to maintain, and which ones to let go. For what types of food to eat, and how to make health promoting, energizing dietary changes that will leave us feeling good.
Many of what we call illness and disease are actually direct feedback from our body about the lifestyle we’re living, in an attempt to provide us with what we need to make the changes necessary to restore our body to health, and a positive, high energy, feel-good state. For example, lactose intolerance is not something you should take a pill for so you can keep on drinking milk and eating cheese, it’s your body’s way of telling you it can’t digest it, and quit consuming it. Heart disease and hypertension is a condition caused by how you’re living, not only in dietary terms, but also your stress level and habitual emotional state that frames reality in a way that causes you to react negatively to your own thoughts about things. It’s your body’s way of saying you’re emotional thoughts and reactive behavior are destructive and will ultimately end up killing you if you don’t change it. Diabetes is calling your attention to the nature of your diet, and the state of your body in terms of being overweight, or not exercising. You’re maintaining a lifestyle and mental state that’s detrimental to your health. Again, it’s not warranting medication of some kind so you can keep on doing what you’re doing that’s killing yourself, it’s your body’s way of talking to you, providing you with evidence and feedback as direct and immediate affects, that also provide you with the information you need on how and what to change.
By becoming present in our body, and in our life in general, and removing our attention from unproductive emotional thoughts, and instead directing our attention to what’s going on within us and around us, we can realize what our body is prompting us to do by how we feel. When you choose a meal, choose one that you know is nutritious and will create a healthy happy body. As you eat it, think only about how healthy it is, and how you’re eating healthy because you love your body. After you’re done eating, sit quietly for a few minutes, and notice how your body feels in response to what you just gave it. Learn how to dialogue with your body through thoughts that form a strong feeling in your body. The “feeling” produced by your thoughts “is” the communication with your body, it’s an effect in the body as the equivalent of your thoughts. It’s not enough to go through the motions of saying it, you’ve got to mean it! You have to create the emotional expression of what you’re saying to yourself. Thought without feeling has no power to create.

soul energy

Likewise, when you go places, engage in activities, or are around certain people, calm your mind, become present and neutral, and notice how you’re feeling and what you’re sensing. Be present with the energy and see what emotional quality it has, and what mental impressions it naturally forms. Don’t force the interpretation or allow your normal judgmental mind to kick in and start running stuff, simply allow yourself to notice it, without needing to change it. Remain unattached to what you’re sensing. Don’t try and explain it or make it mean something, just sense it as it actually is. Then, see it for what it actually is, your body giving you immediate feedback as to the consciousness and energy of the person, people, or activity you’re engaged in. Use that neutral and unbiased information as factual and true to guide your decisions and how you interact. Don’t let your emotional mind come back in and start running your habitual mental script in the new situation, recreating it to mean the same thing.
By learning to relax, control our anxious thoughts always competing for our attention, and directing our attention instead into the present moment, and experiencing things by way of our body and the actual energy and consciousness that’s present with us, we can gain a whole new sense of ourselves and our relationship with life. We can become truly creative in the moment by directing our actions with full awareness and by interacting with what’s actually present with us. We can learn to see people and things as they actually are rather than as we reshape them to be like us through our biased judgments and habitual way of thinking and perceiving that creates illusions in place of reality.
When we walk into any situation with preconceived notions, and our perceptual lens rigidly formed by our judgments, that for the most part rob us of our ability to see others and reality as it actually is, apart from us, and unique unto itself, we simultaneously rob ourselves of the possibility for brand new experiences. By developing the ability to be present in our body and with the people and things around us, we can begin experiencing life and others in a whole new way. We can acquire the information and feedback we need to begin living our life in a much more conscious and aware fashion, and begin creating in a deliberate and precise manner as a result. We can learn how to live in our heart rather than in our head.
Simply begin observing your own mind, your own tendencies, and notice what you tend to think about in an automatic and habitual fashion, and what stories run through your mind that glaze over the present with memories of the past and keep you in a hopelessly distracted state, and recognize what it is that keeps you from being present . . . . and through this self-awareness, start practicing directing your mind to remain focused in the present and forming an awareness of how you’re feeling in relationship to your environment. Learn how to remain aware of your body and tuned into what you’re sensing through your body and what information your body’s always in the process of giving you. Tune out of the imagined reality and tune into the real reality. All opportunities only exist in the present moment. Tomorrow is being created today. You’re only ability to act, is in this moment.

Becoming Self-Aware – Mastering the Power of the Spoken Word

mental energy
One of the most powerful things you can do to become self-aware is to begin taking conscious control of what you say. By becoming aware of what we say or what we tend to talk about, we can become aware of our own style of thinking. Words that make up the sentences that we speak have the power to shape visual imagery associated with them, which acts to program our subconscious mind to produce them as a physical manifestation or outer experience. What we talk about, and the attitude and stories we form by how we talk, reveal in very specific terms what our “model of the world” is, and how we use our model to fashion our realities and shape ourselves by way of those realities. Words that are spoken, bring the words as internal thoughts outward in a form of communication that elicits the same type of realities in whomever we’re speaking to. Words form the very basis of our thinking and act to shapes ideas as sound into realities internally, that are then used to express and call forth those realities externally by actively speaking them.

While many people believe that what they think and talk about is an accurate depiction and expression of a factual reality, and that because of this they’re communicating truthfully, the fact is, nothing could be further from the truth. Our perception of life and reality outside of us is an interpretation that remolds it to be “like us”. Our mind as a paradigm or thematic pattern, takes in information from the outside world and translates it into a story-line as a personalization of it. We’re always “within” our mind’s paradigm looking out, and only “see” in the external world what matches our internal world and can be explained, described, and understood using our paradigm. We literally abstract or pull out of any situation the parts and aspects that resonate with our model, then recompose those aspects to tell a story out of them as a way of experiencing them. Because of this unique feature of the human mind, every single person that’s apart of the same outer reality or event, will form a unique and different experience of it. If five people participate in the same thing, you’ll get five distinct interpretations, all of which “noticed” different things, and created a story out of it by how they put those abstract aspects together in a cohesive way to experience them in a consistent manner so they make sense with all of their experiences. We never experience things or other people as they are, but as we remake them.

The words we speak are formed into internal imagery that gives life to them as actual and real possibilities. Our thoughts, which come as an inner voice, utilizes our imagination which forms them into possible outer realities based on what memories or ideas we’ve associated to they words themselves. Thoughts are the seeds for producing whole realities, first internally as reliving and recombining memories, forming conceptualizations and internal representations as our creative style for expression. Not only do we think the same type of thoughts repeatedly, but we imagine the same type of scenarios over and over, different only as the modifications necessary to apply them to various outer circumstances. While they vary in application, they remain cohesive and consistent in the theme that’s used to shape them. As we think we create. Our thoughts as internal dialogue are the active use of our will. What we think about we’re simultaneously in the process of creating as our experiences. What you think and speak is not an accurate account of your life, but your life is a direct reflection of your thoughts. All reality as we know it is subject to the individual experiencing it. The inner exists in relationship to the outer, and turns universal and objective reality into a personal subjective reality as the experience of it.

As you speak you call forth the reality inherent in your words. As you talk to others, the words that you use and the attitude you speak them with, stimulate in them the same type of reality, and they become a co-creator in that reality. By telling them what life is like for us, we form an image of ourselves in their mind by how they think about what we’re saying. As they picture what we’re saying, they form a similar interpretation, and share in our beliefs about ourselves. This subjective reality as a personalization forms a belief system that’s projected and superimposed over our outer reality as a way of seeing, experiencing, and creating only what matches our belief about it. This is why beliefs are difficult to identify from truth, because they’re our own creation and form the very foundation for how we create our experiences as our basic outer perception.

One of the best ways to begin gaining an in-depth insight into your own mind, is to simply begin the practice of objectively listening or witnessing what you say to others. As you talk naturally, periodically hesitate, and move out of the associated position of being “in the experience” you’re talking about, and listen to what you just said, and notice what you see in it in terms of the belief system or paradigm you’re living out of. Listen to the reality it indicates. Notice how you’re presenting yourself to others. And simply reflect on it, allowing a chain of associated ideas to take place as a way of following them back to their roots. Notice that as you objectively listen to yourself as being outside of the experience you’re talking about, without emotional attachments, that a whole series of memories as associated ideas will flash through your mind. And again, just observe them, and allow yourself to realize where they come from and gain insight into them, as self-realization. Simultaneously you’ll begin recognizing how your outer expression as verbalizing thoughts reveals what and how you tend to think. What perspective you take to create your own experiences, what it says about you, and who you become by way of it. Don’t judge it or try to explain and justify it, simply witness it as if you were observing or listening to someone else.

Once you gain the incredible insight listening to yourself brings, you can extend the practice by learning how to think about what you say before you say it. You can move from an unconscious position of automatic and spontaneous communication, to one of thoughtful and deliberate communication. You can begin asking yourself in any situation, what do I want to create by what I’m about to say, and how will what I say and the attitude I say it with, influence the person or situation I’m saying it too? What will they form in their mind based on what I’m saying? What mental impression or mood am I creating by how and what I talk about? What image am I conveying that will form their impression of me, and what type of ideas they automatically associate to me.

By viewing words as cause that produces an equal and predictable effect, we can begin using our words to strategically produce a specific affect in others. We can realize that we have the ability to call forth and create whatever we speak as an internal image. We can begin realizing that it’s through communication that we naturally direct the mind of others. Whatever ideas we’re giving life to inside of us by thinking about them, become the thoughts of others by how we express them. We can begin directing other people’s mind’s by learning to direct our own mind. By becoming conscious of this dynamic process of creating through mental influence, we are provided with the means to begin taking control of our own thoughts, and becoming responsible for how we influence people in a direct and indirect manner. We can begin seeing things about ourselves that eluded us before and remained hidden from our direct awareness. We can begin realizing in very clear terms what our mental model is, what attitudes and beliefs govern our life and act to create our experiences, and through this realization we can begin working with them consciously and intentionally through the creative power of choice and will.
