Energy Medicine – Transmutation and the Law of Sympathies

Energy Medicine – Transmutation and the Law of Sympathies

        All living beings exist at multiple levels simultaneously and have both a physical and energetic body. The energetic body, which is also referred to as the etheric double or vital body, is comprised of subtle energy and is what serves to transform a field of organized information (mind) into a material being through a form of self-organizing mechanism that’s inherent in the life-force energy. All energy as vibration contains a pattern and a self-organizing feature that acts to shape essence into a specialized pattern as a biological life-form. This life-force energy causes a single cell encoded with genetic information to reproduce and differentiate to form every aspect and function of a larger, physical body. It’s the spiritual (invisible) forces that activate and animate all physical beings not only producing an analogous form, but also the consciousness and personality of that form as its “life”. It’s the subtle intelligence that gives life to all living beings by holding trillions of cells (single replicas) together as a unified and self-governed field of information.

         The most fundamental composition of what we call matter is light. Light exists primarily in an invisible state and only becomes illuminated and therefore visible to the physical senses when it’s reflecting off of matter of some kind. A blue sky appears illuminated and therefore “light” by reflecting off of dust particles and humidity in the atmosphere (astral plane). So what we commonly think of as illumination (light) is really a projection and reflection of a dark field of energy. Energy as light is invisible to the physical senses whenever it’s not being reflected off of something. Light itself exists in seven basic aspects as a spectrum of colors (values) that represent what frequency it vibrates at, moving from a slower, lower waveform to a faster, and higher one. Each color within the spectrum contains different energetic states as qualities of consciousness. The natural color of something gives us insight into what frequency it’s vibrating at and what type of qualities it possesses as a result.

          Whatever properties a material object contains reveals to us what aspect of light is either absorbed and remains invisible to the senses, and what’s not. The vibratory frequency of the internal energies is revealed by what it “resonates” with, which it acts to absorb and integrate. Whatever isn’t absorbed is reflected instead and forms the outer appearance that an object takes on. For example, a leaf is green, not because it chemically produces the green ray of the light spectrum, but because it’s the only hue of the spectrum it doesn’t act to “absorb”, and reflects it instead. So what we think of as the inner constitution of something is comprised of the qualities and potencies it naturally acts to absorb and assimilate from the atmosphere around it, which is what forms its energetic state, and is only evident in its outer appearance by what it’s “not”. The outer appearance is produced by the complementary opposite of its inner state. For example, green is the complementary opposite of red. So an outer color of green tells us that it acts to absorb the red frequencies of the spectrum.

       The internal nature of light is actually comprised of all the colors of the spectrum as the essence or inner nature of light which is why it doesn’t reflect any colors and appears invisible. Colors, or “rays” as they’re commonly called, exist as qualities that each has a unique, yet complementary vibration within the same scale as a range of vibration. Light exists as seven basic colors, in the same way that seven notes makes up a musical scale as an octave. The eighth one is formed as the summation of all seven as an accumulation that takes it to the next higher scale as the base note that begins that scale. The form light takes on as a physical object is based on its rate (speed of movement as a wave-form) and mode (quality and function) of vibration, and is referred to as its essence, which contains a certain type and kind of pattern. A pattern acts as a template for organizing the informational structure of a material form, giving it certain characteristics.

       Light, like all energy of the universe, exists simultaneously in a dual state as both a wave and field of information, and as a particle or actual physical form that’s constructed out of the same type of pattern on different scales and levels of creation, and forms both our internal state and our outer reality as direct reflections and correspondences to each other. The inner, invisible light and the outer visible world exist in polarity to each other as complementary opposites of the same idea. The outer manifestation of the material body is produced and maintained by the inner essence and state of consciousness as its vibratory frequency. This is a universal law that governs all of life, and is always true. No exceptions. Energy and matter are different densities as complementary opposites of the same thing and exist in an intimate relationship with each other.

The Nature of Subtle Energy

       What we call subtle energy is a fluid-like light as the essence of Life itself. Its essence if formed out of “qualities of consciousness” that form our inner, spiritual nature and is what determines our physical characteristics as a dynamic interrelated pattern that forms how we function and what manifests as a result. Essence is comprised of different energies that makeup the personal consciousness and existence of something. It’s a pattern as an energetic formula of concentrated qualities and forces that make up its constitution as a “Soul”. As humans we’re unique and stand apart from the rest of life on Earth because we’re of a threefold nature and have a lower, animal soul (etheric double) needed to construct a physical body, a middle or human Soul (specialized as a unique pattern of qualities), and the higher Soul as the “I” which makes us unique individuals in our own right. These three aspects of our being correlate with the physical, etheric, astral, emotional, mental, and causal fields of all living entities.

       The Higher Soul is the Quintessence, which is comprised of archetypes that serve as ideas in their pure or ideal state as virtues, and are used to grow and transform material bodies by altering their essence as both active and passive properties. This is the archetypal plane of Higher, perfected consciousness used as the means for transforming ourselves while in a physical body by embodying qualities as an idea that we then perfect in us as an “ideal”. By using the archetypes of the higher, spiritual plane to create ourselves, we form ourselves to be of an ideal, virtuous and god-like nature. We transform ourselves by taking on qualities that alter our character and how we function in the most natural sense.

The Law of Polarity and the Nature of Absorption and Assimilation

       Matter exists in a primary state as the passive and receptive component of consciousness, and only acts to absorb energies around it that are of the same essence and nature as the soul inhabiting it. It’s formed and reformed by whatever it resonates with, attracts, absorbs and assimilates that acts to modify its essence through the type, degree, and measure of the energies it blends with. The state and condition of the body determines what type of energies it acts to naturally absorb from the space around it. This means that whatever state of mind as a quality of consciousness we exist in as our inner nature and character, determines what we’re susceptible to, and what we’re not. Absorption only takes place through sympathetic induction of “like energies”. We resonate with everything around us that’s of a similar nature and essence as we are. As we draw in energies of a similar vibration, they produce an affect in us, altering our vibration (soul composition), and we begin vibrating in harmony with them. Our vibration is altered through the acquisition, integration, and accumulation of similar energies where we become “like them” in nature. This is the most fundamental form of evolution that all beings undergo that keeps them in-sync with their environment.

       All life as we know it is produced by an idea as a specialized pattern that has certain qualities that gives it the characteristics and produces all of its natural behaviors and determines how it functions instinctively. Our specialized pattern as our essence forms a dynamic chain of associations as correspondences that produce our disposition, temperament, attitude, perspective, thoughts, emotions, and actions. All behavior as activity is motivated and produced by subtle energy. The quality of energy determines the corresponding behaviors and what we “cause and create” as a result. Every action as a cause sets into motion a process that produces an effect as an equivalent reaction. It produces a ripple effect that creates both smaller and greater patterns of the same nature, as well as immediate and long-term effects. If an action is being continuously repeated and maintained in a consistent fashion, we strengthen and develop the energies as the type of consciousness that’s motivating it.

       Life-force energies form the full spectrum of light as the essence of all Life. It’s the qualities that form the inner nature of all living beings in different proportions and degrees. This same principle is what acts to form the universal nutriment that sustains all of life. This is the power by which we perceive the true qualities of things, where we take in an idea, and as a means of adapting it to our mental model in order to make sense of it, we assimilate it into an existing body of ideas that we already possess, altering it to “be like us” in order to perceive it in a fully conscious way. In order to perceive the soul of a being as its “life”, we have to intuitively perceive the qualities inherent in it, rather than its outer appearance, which is simply a reflection of light. As we begin resonating with the inner qualities of a thing, we form sympathy with it and as a result absorb the same qualities, activating them within us, modifying our own energetic structure to be of a similar nature.

Relationship and the Process of Transformation

       All things that are already manifest only change their inner nature by forming relationships as new combinations of qualities. By changing the chemistry of an energetic formula, we create new patterns. These patterns can appear balanced or unbalanced based on the degree and proportion or intensity of each quality forming it. All mutations come as new combinations formed by whatever relationships are formed and maintained over a period of time. We don’t transform by attempting to alter the energy (quality) itself, because energy exists as pure essence that can’t be altered or changed, and can only be used to form a new combination of energies that serve to transform and modify a preexisting essence as a complex.

       All energies have a purpose and focus and are of a certain type, kind, and concentration. These energies aren’t good or bad in and of themselves, but instead are used in either appropriate or inappropriate ways, making them constructive or destructive. An imbalance, caused by an excessive amount of a certain type of energy causes a manifestation that becomes detrimental and ultimately destructive to the entire system (mentally, morally, emotionally, and physically), causing what ultimately results in some kind of illness or disease. The natural means for transforming (healing) the manifestation is to combine new qualities of consciousness that serve to bring it back into a balanced and harmonious state, or to recognize what quality is being used inappropriately and finding a more congruent means of expression.

       Our subtle body as our etheric/vital body, vibrates at a specific frequency as a “range of vibration” or scale that’s constantly resonating and forming sympathy with all similar energies in the environment around us. We absorb these energies with our etheric organs as the electromagnetic fields of the chakra system, that in turn serve to operate the Endocrine system of the physical body as the means of interpreting and distributing energies to their corresponding organs throughout the body. Chakras are magnetic fields as spiritual centers that acquire, integrate, accumulate and distribute energy, altering the state of the body to match it as a correspondence. Embodying a feeling of love creates a sensation of beauty as a state of mind that systematically infuses the entire body with that same quality by producing a chain of association as the electric signals absorbed by the magnetic centers that send out corresponding messengers (hormones) altering the chemistry of the body to match it. When these mental states are expressed consistently over an extended period of time, producing an emphasis, they act systematically to regenerate the molecular structure of the body to be of the same state or complementary nature.

The Astral Plane of Light

        All living beings derive their Life-giving energies from two primary sources in Nature – from the inner and outer atmosphere. What we call the atmosphere as a field of light we’re submerged in, can also be thought of as the Astral Plane of Light (sun-star light) which is a unified field of ideas (information) as “thought-forms” that acts as the nutriment agent used by the human soul to create and sustain itself as a certain “type and kind of person”. What we perceive as the atmosphere surrounding us exists as the etheric body or soul of the Earth as an invisible field of substances. We draw these nutriments as elements into our etheric body (inwardly) where they act to change our energetic composition. The intangible atmosphere as the empty space around us is the source of all Life upon the Earth and throughout the universe that we all share in common and use both unconsciously and consciously as the means of shaping ourselves.

       This invisible field is the root of intelligence and emotions and the source of all archetypes (patterns) by which all species are differentiated and formed into specialized patterns with unique combinations of universal qualities. Various kinds of energy can only be released and utilized through beings whose natures are sympathetic and where polarities exist. Humans are unique from all other forms of life on Earth because they’re capable of modifying their own nature and can attract countless forms of energy as a result. If we don’t use our higher capacities of self-realization, choice and will to intentionally develop in us the energies that are constructive in nature, then we exist on the same non-intelligent plane as the animals and only act to attract more of what originated through our genetic make-up and formative conditioning. By remaining in an unconscious state we simply attract and create out of the same type of ideas and patterns over and over without knowing any better or realizing that we have the power to change it. We only respond to those energies we can capture and hold by the polarities we’ve strengthened and developed in ourselves through thoughtful and skillful means.

       There are many different kinds of polarities we can establish that produce a natural chain of association that affects the mineral, nutritional, astral, physical, emotional, mental and spiritual planes producing a similar effect in each one. An individual can only energize an emotional power that’s consistent with their own nature. If we exist in a primary hateful state, we can’t act as the vehicle for forming an archetype of love. We polarize ourselves to hate instead as a kind of gravitational field or affinity that acts to tune into, absorb, assimilate, and enhance and strengthen more feelings of hate. We form perceptions that are hateful and attract people and situations that cause us to feel and express more hatred. All of our experiences come as a result of what qualities we embody as our state of mind and use to create our perceptions and actions as an expression of that quality that reproduce and amplify it, giving us more of it. Like always produces more of what’s like itself. The outer reality always corresponds to the inner reality.

Polarity of Qualities

       All qualities exist in a polar state of complementary opposites necessary to sustain and transform each other. These are expressed in spiritual texts as virtues and their opposing vices. Love and hate exist as what seems like opposites, but are identical as a pattern or idea, and are only separated by degrees on a form of sliding scale. One exists as the extreme of the other and is necessary in order to create the other based on how they contrast and relate to each other. We can only “know something” as a specific quality by contrasting and comparing it to what it’s not. Love has no meaning unless we compare it to hate, just as we can only know cold as it compares to hot. The balanced point between the extremes of love and hate is like, just as the balance point between cold and hot is warm. Opposing aspects of the same idea, separated only by degrees that move them gradually from one extreme to another, and balance each other at a neutral center point. A practical knowledge of the Law of Polarity provides us with the method and means of transforming ourselves from one state to another.   

       Therapy in the most basic sense comes by identifying imbalances and setting up the necessary poles for the reception and distribution of energies in order to bring it back into balance. By removing all impediments to its circulation, and opposing two energies, one to another, we act to neutralize that which is no longer useful or necessary in creating well-being. Food isn’t merely a physical substance with nutritional value in terms of vitamins and minerals, but is the medium for the transmission of Life-force energy. It’s the energetic nature of the food that nourishes us energetically. The nature of the plant determines what it takes up and utilizes from the soil to produce its essence, and likewise, it’s the nature of a person that determines what they uptake from the universal nutriment. This is why when several people are exposed to the same contaminant only certain people get sick from it, because it’s all based on the energetic condition of their mind and body and what they act to absorb or repel.

       All things grow according to their kind and constitution. We have the ability to change certain parts of ourselves by intentionally developing our own nature. We can change bad habits, negative attitudes, and false beliefs which serve to draw us to destructive energy and produce ill health and a general sense of unhappiness. Each destructive thought kills nutritive forces within us, whereas constructive thought brings a renewed sense of life to our thinking. In the ultimate sense we’re all responsible for how we use and cultivate energy to create ourselves and our health. We’re the only ones that act to determine what energies we indulge in, feed on, and use to create ourselves, and which ones we don’t. In this sense all healing is “self-healing”. Only we have the power and conscious ability to heal ourselves by modifying our own energetic makeup.

Sympathies – Affinity as Association

       Whatever exists in the atmosphere around us that’s of a similar nature to us, we form an affinity with as a kind of gravitational field. Through energetic sympathy we form an intimate relationship where whatever affects one affects the other in a similar manner. They form a corresponding nature in qualities, properties, proportions, and harmonic elements. The astral plane is the plane of the Soul and is the medium capable of communicating and transmitting vibration through a form of telepathy. Whatever state we maintain on a regular basis we act as a tuner, transmitter, and receiver for the same type of energy within the Astral Plane of the material world.

Magnetism and Attraction

       Each person tunes themselves to a particular frequency by the mental state and qualities they employ and strengthen by expressing them. Whatever qualities as a state of mind we employ magnetizes us to the same type of forces and circumstances all around us and we are drawn to them through a form of attraction. We only act to produce whatever it is we “earn” and therefore “deserve” through our mental state and conduct. When we polarize ourselves to a pattern that’s self-fulfilling in nature, we establish a pole between us and the corresponding energy and idea in everyone and everything else around us. We draw on the energetic essences in Nature that are analogous to our mental state and necessary in order to produce a reality that matches and is the expression of our state. We draw on the archetypal ideas from the higher plane of perfect ideals as metaphors, in order to produce a reality out of it as a means of creating ourselves to be like it. We draw on essences in order to produce a unique essence as a new combination that tunes us to a certain type of reality.

       Sympathetic attraction can be thought of as a gravitational field of magnetic forces, where one seeks out another of the same nature for the purpose of companionship and in order to exchange similar ideas. Whatever we “blend with” in nature, we form an intimate understanding of as a relationship that’s a form of energetic marriage as a blood relative. As we absorb it energetically it acts to alter our blood chemistry to be of the same nature. In the law governing magnetic forces, all greater forces attract lesser forces of the same kind. Whoever we form a close relationship with influences us to become more like them, and we simultaneously influence them to become more like us through shared qualities that act to stimulate each other.

The Healing Art of Theurgy – Work of the Gods

       The most basic form of Energy Medicine comes as spiritual growth and healing that transforms us from one state to another, and is conducted through a practice known as Theurgy. The term Theurgy means the “art of the gods”, and a Theurgist is someone who works to heal and transform by utilizing the natural forces of the higher, archetypal plane as the means of forming new combinations. One of the best ways to gain an understanding of the higher plane of archetypes is by studying the various mythology of the gods as “ideals” that demonstrate how certain qualities, characteristics, and actions work together harmoniously to produce certain types of reality as a certain kind of story. The archetypes of the Zodiac give us an in-depth description of the qualities and characteristics that we all share in common as aspects of our inner nature in varying degrees, placements, and proportions, and how they ultimately manifest as our inner nature that simultaneously produces our physical state and sense of well-being.

       Archetypes as gods are always described by using a dynamic series of correspondences that pertain to their essence as numbers, letters, sounds, colors, gemstones, planetary influences, metals, elements, emotions, mental states, qualities and characteristics, and what part of the body they rule. This system of correspondences provides us with a formula and method for transforming every aspect of our being in a unified and harmonious manner where we’re working intelligently by starting at the level of cause in order to produce a calculated and specific effect. Every item listed as a correspondence is of the same vibratory essence and also acts as a magnet for drawing in the same kind of energies.

         An archetype as a god gives us a complete idea as a pattern comprised of complementary correspondences, which, when utilized as a symbol polarizes us to the same qualities and essences. By combining and blending essences together we either increase or decrease the sum of our essence. Essences as qualities are eternal and remain the same. We don’t ever change the individual essences themselves, but create unique ones instead by forming new combinations. The human Soul is a part of the higher archetypal kingdom, and creates itself as an individual and unique archetype by utilizing archetypal essences and ideas in order to form new patterns. We change the overall potency and properties of already accumulated essences by forming them into new combinations of qualities as a “way of being”. As we embody certain qualities and utilize other corresponding ideas, we tune ourselves to the vibratory frequency of that idea. Resonance, sympathetic induction, and coherence are the primary law governing the spiritual world of pure energy. Whatever we become one with as a quality of consciousness, we act as a magnet for attracting more of the same type of energy, while simultaneously serving to magnify and multiply it.

Antipathy

       The recognition of sympathy immediately implies antipathy – which are the complementary electromagnetic forces inherent in every single aspect of both the visible and invisible world as feminine (magnetic) and masculine (electric) forces that act simultaneously to produce a matrix of stress lines that pulls together as it pushes apart. When we attempt to reconcile opposing electric and magnetic forces they form into a spiraling motion that creates a stable energetic system. One attracts (draws in) while the other simultaneously repels (projects outward).

       We can think of this metaphorically as sympathy working through and inherent understanding as relating, and antipathy through misunderstanding that contrasts. Whatever is of a different nature than we are and expresses in a different way from us, we can’t understand and therefore feel indifferent to. Wisdom, like love, is a uniting force that acts to bring all things together through an understanding of the soul with its source, and ignorance or a lack of understanding is a separating force that acts as a kind of filtering system. Virtues bring us into contact with all that’s virtuous, connecting us to our true source. Vices are destructive tendencies that draw to us destructive energies, people, and situations. All growth and development comes by connecting with and drawing in energies that are similar to itself, yet unique in proportions and intensities, for the continuous nutriment that serves to sustain and expand its own existence.

Motivation and Willful Creation

      Whatever is motivating and forming the basis for our desire and intention is the most powerful factor in attraction and is what determines the nature as an outcome of any decisive act. Motivation is what forms our attitude and how we approach an idea as an outcome we’re trying to willfully produce. Attraction is always due to unconscious or conscious use of will based on the desire for a certain type of experience as a kind of “wish fulfillment”. The same actions taken with a different motive will produce different results. Whatever is motivating our decision is our reason for taking the action, and is what determines the nature of the outcome. It’s not the action itself that produces the outcome, but the desire that’s motivating the action. It’s not so much what we do, but rather how we do it. The same action taken with a different attitude will produce different results. We should make it a practice to carefully examine our motives in any situation in order to fully understand what results from them, otherwise confusion and disillusionment may occur.

       A resentful person creates a sympathetic relationship with those who are resentful, and attract the circumstances and situations that are ideal for causing more resentment. All energies as complexes are self-fulfilling, and act to feed and sustain them. Emotions are not only readily available and easily accessed, but are also accumulative. Our inner life sets up the polarity that determines our outer life. When personal resources are low, we lack self-control, and our spiritual values are inadequate or nonexistent, we may feel as if we have no means of effectively combating the destructive emotions that are brewing within us. We act on ourselves to align ourselves with an infinite storehouse of whatever quality we employ as our state-of-mind, and as a result, cut ourselves off from contrary sympathetic resources. By feeling resentful we enter into a state of antipathy with love and appreciation as the opposing quality, and are never able to resolve our constant feelings of resentment, and act instead to multiply and intensify them.

       All negative emotions are destructive and all positive ones are constructive. Destructive energy is dispersing and not only antipathetically opposed to its opposite, positive emotion, but also towards itself, and only act to cause inner conflict as a fundamental state of confusion. A person who is consumed with negative emotions suffers constant inner turmoil because their vices are also incompatible with each other and act against each other in an antagonistic and destructive way. Wherever there’s internal conflict, there are also correlating health problems. Whenever there’s psychic confusion there’s tension, and tension causes an obstruction in the flow of energy throughout the body.

       Whenever we manifest an illness or malady of some kind, we can use a system of correspondences as the means of knowing where our imbalances are taking place by the organ and part of the body they occur in. We can find the archetype that governs that part of the body, what qualities and mental states it represents, and use this information to intentionally employ the appropriate state, emotion, behaviors and way of being as the means of introducing the complementary energy in order to bring our system back into balance. We can note the herbs, minerals, colors, and personality of the archetype as a means of changing lifestyle issues associated with it. We can see what the vice or negative character trait is that’s also associated with it, and use the virtue as a means of transforming it. We can use the system of correspondences as the means of working on ourselves from the level of “cause” (reason, mental, emotional, etheric, and physical) to transform what manifests as an “effect”. All manifestation originates as a mental and emotional state which is what forms the etheric body. All changes occur first in the subtle body which is created by the relationship and activities of all three aspects of the mind (conscious, self-conscious, and subconscious) working in harmony with each other.

Energy Practitioners: Working with Subtle Energy as Consciousness

 Feeling, Thought, Emotion, and Vibratory Frequency

The thrust of “Energy Medicine” has gotten off to a slow start that has often been sidetracked with endless practices that are born out of a skewed knowledge and understanding of law in terms of how “invisible forces” produce “visible (material) effects”. The problem is further compounded by the failure to grasp the true nature of what we call energy as it pertains to human psychology and the physical body. Just as there’s confusion around the difference between the mind and brain, and consciousness and the mind, there’s no accurate distinction made between the spirit and the soul, or the spirit-soul and the body. Because of basic errors made in in the perception of it as the paradigm used for understanding it, practices that have been developed to work with it in a creative and healing way, have been largely ineffective, and in some cases even harmful. One of the most basic forms of ignorance comes from approaching invisible forces as subtle energy through the same laws that govern material manifestation, or approaching it from the perspective that subtle energy can be “manipulated” and controlled or redirected using the physical conduit through which it flows, meaning that the material body produces and is in a “causal relationship” with consciousness itself, and literally produces or generates it. This idea is a fundamental error in thinking, and like all premises that are formed out of an error, everything that evolves out of it is a reflection and by-product of that same error. The body doesn’t produce consciousness, it merely acts as a vehicle or instrument for it. The Subtle realm of conscious energy exists in polarity (the active life-force that inhabits a passive body) to the gross realm and operates according to opposite laws that are complementary in nature (electromagnetism), and act together through the relationship they form to produce a coherent reality. The consciousness of the body, exists as the mind (soul) which is an individualized composite built up through an accumulative process, that first produces its physical equivalent as a material reality that provides it with an experience that’s formed into a memory by how it’s interpreted to have meaning, which is of the same “nature” as the mind that’s producing it, and is integrated into the vibratory structure of the mind, updating or developing it as a paradigm or mental model. This law of self-expression that produces physical realities as projections that superimpose patterns over the external, outer world, called our “perceptual lens”, reorganizes matter into a composition that “matches it” as an outer expression of an inner feeling. Subtle energy, which penetrates the body (moves into and through it), while also existing outside and separate from it, is felt in the body as feeling sensations, that are actually stimulating various parts (endocrine glands and major organs) of the body forming a “corresponding state”, by saturating the body with the chemical equivalent of the vibratory frequency. Subtle energy is consciousness that has accumulated into an individual pattern as a model that resonates with the body, organizing it at the molecular level to form an analogous expression as the physical equivalent of the quality of consciousness itself, forming and determining the energetic state and health of the body. In order to “heal” the body and change how it’s being stimulated and organized, we have to work directly with the individual consciousness as their psychology. Their psychology is the expression of their mind as their soul, which “functions” in a certain way as self-expression that simultaneously self-creates. A person’s psychology, formed primarily of values, beliefs, memory, conditioning, preferences, tendencies, temperament, disposition, and so on, as their mental paradigm, forms their perceptions and behaviors as their personality, lifestyle, and habitual routines that create and regulate their health and emotional well-being as a natural by-product of how they care for themselves and conduct their life. So anything that’s “of the body”, originates through the active and inactive forces of the mind. The material body is the passive receptor of the consciousness of the mind that forms (and reforms) it while operating through it “as” it. The mind is “causal” and the body is the “effect”. We cannot work with the effect as a means of changing the cause. We have to always work with the cause to alter and transform the effect it produces as its opposite, yet equivalent counterpart. In this way we can realize that all physical manifestations of the body are psychosomatic in nature (whether unconscious or conscious) and the product of the soul-mind that organizes and operates it. Physical Manipulation and Emotional Release: Many of what we call “energy practitioners” (which have no defined criteria for the title itself) works almost exclusively through various forms of physical manipulation (massage, pounding or slapping, tapping, stretching, hands on, electrical frequencies, vibration, etc.) designed to “release” pent up energy held in various parts of the body as tension, inhibited energy flow, and stress, believing or professing that it’s and “energetic cure”, without ever seeming to realize that the mental complex that produced it to begin with, simply reforms it. So while there may be a temporary relief, it’s often short lived and is simply recreated and reestablished as an energy block, congestion, or concentration by the mental complex that produced it in the first place. Because this approach doesn’t produce a lasting effect it’s not considered “evidence based medicine”, and is therefore labeled “pseudoscience”. This is the equivalent of the Sorcerer and the Magician, where the Sorcerer hasn’t taken the time or put forth the effort to acquire “real knowledge” of the craft, to be able to manipulate matter using the mind, and instead tries to manipulate the mind using the body. They go through the motion while never employing any real science. Anytime an energy block is opened and cleared, it’s experienced as an “emotional release”. We experience a simultaneous emotional change that’s the result of releasing the tension held in a certain part of the body. Emotions of any kind, but particularly negative emotions, produce “tension” in various parts of the body. The emotional release isn’t the healing itself, but rather provides us with the pathway that connects the thought as a memory, stored within the body as the emotion of the memory. Emotions are always connected to thoughts as the “memory of the thought held in the body”. These memories, often called “mental complexes”, represent “whole patterns” as a universal theme (archetype) used to create a personalized experience of the same nature, converting it into a personal memory of some form. By identifying the emotion of the energetic tension held within the body, we can identify the corresponding thought process as memories of some sort “causing it”. By working with the psychological aspect as the thematic thought process married to the emotion as the physical response to our own internal perceptions, we can “break the pattern” of the thoughts by transforming or re-experiencing the memory itself. Memories as perceptions that contain certain type of thoughts and emotions as a “story-line” of some sort, program our subconscious mind by giving it a prototype or template for producing the physical equivalent. Emotions are the chemical components of our thoughts. Thoughts produce a chain of association that simultaneously stimulates (produces and electrical charge as a messenger) the chakra system, nervous system, and endocrine system of the body manufacturing the hormones that “alter the body’s state” to match the mind, while regulating all functions of the body through the chemical messengers as “in-forming” the body. Emotions not only produce our behaviors, but alters how our whole biological system works. The true basis of “Energy Medicine” is exactly correlated with the ancient practice of Alchemy as Personal Transformation that works on the body to reconstitute it through the mind. By working with the mind, we can change our perception, beliefs as thematic patterns, our emotional states, the chemistry that alters our molecular structure, and change how the biological system of the body expresses and functions.  The mind produces the chain-of-association that results in distinct behaviors, lifestyle, and physical condition of the body. All of this is done without ever addressing or working directly with the body itself, but rather using it for what it actually is . . . a feedback loop as to the hidden structure of the mind producing and maintaining it. This is why Allopathic Medicine fails in the most basic sense to “heal” illness and disease, and Alternative methods are falling into the same tendency. Because they work by way of the body, which is simply the end result of a much more subtle process. Conventional medicine, which can have a tendency to produce more problems than it solves, fails to appreciate the true power of the mind and creative spirit as the invisible conscious forces of which the body acts as a mere vehicle for. They work through the fundamental error that the body “produces” consciousness, because they fail to recognize or even understand in the most basic sense what consciousness is, let alone how it operates. Medicine of all forms has unfortunately fallen into the same realm as material science and often doesn’t even address or acknowledge the much greater aspect of what we call “material reality” that’s purely invisible, yet holds together and organizes matter into patterns that have distinct behaviors inherent in them along with a timing mechanism as a growth process based on “accumulation and integration” of information as memory that literally modifies and reforms the material body through the mysterious and unconscious process of cellular regeneration. By working with the invisible forces of consciousness and the individual mind, we can change the state and organization of the body, changing the nature of its molecular form, biological function, and genetic expression. Consciousness in the most primary sense of the human mind, which is a smaller scale version of the group, species, world, and universal mind, serves to form our thoughts, which exist independent of the body and act as the energetic charge or messenger that operates the nervous system of the body. Feelings as vibratory frequencies form thoughts as coherence between the heart and brain, which serve to stimulate the subtle energy system of the body producing emotions in response to our thoughts as the chemical equivalent. Emotions are experienced as “tension in the body” that’s located in different spots, and is referred to as producing energetic “congestion” or “blocks” that prevent a relaxed and free flow of energy within the entire subtle / physical body. The subtle body is what regulates the physical body as a bridge between the mind and body. Our emotional states tend to be caused by mental complexes as “patterns that form behavioral dynamics” by altering and regulating the chemistry of the body. Our thoughts (ideas we run through our mind) produce an energetic stimulus (sensation) in the parts of the body that correspond and are correlated to the thoughts (chakra and endocrine system) which produce the chemistry (hormone) of the thought as emotion. Emotions alter the “state and condition” of the body to match the thought, and are how thoughts first enter fully into and manifest in the material realm as a reality by how it not only forms, but also operates matter through behaviors that “act out” (express) the idea of the thought. Repeated stimulus as thoughts and emotions that we dwell in and continue to maintain  over an extended period of time form tension in the body as energetic congestion that form blocks, and eventually manifest as a physical malady of some sort. We can tell the nature of the thought producing it based on what part and organ of the body it manifests in. Thoughts that produce distinct emotions are consistently felt in specific parts of the body. So to relax tension in the body as an emotional release, opening up and restoring the energetic flow within the subtle body to a harmonious state, tends to only produce a temporary affect, because the consciousness (vibratory frequency) of the mind, in a relatively short period of time, simply reforms the tension as a complex or pattern. All vibration as subtle and conscious energy acts to organize matter into patterns through a form of tension, which takes on natural functions and behaviors. Form which produces a system, always indicates the functions, operations, and behaviors it naturally takes on. So whatever form (material substance) is shaped and held together through energetic tension (mental complex), expresses in very distinct ways as creative and biological processes. The cause of all material manifestation is a product of the mind as the consciousness of the body. In order to permanently change the energetic expression of a system, and therefore how it forms and functions, we have to change the nature of the consciousness responsible for forming and animating it. Vibration as a feeling contains within it an idea (pattern) in its latent form as an archetype or universal idea. Through resonance, it enters into (is inducted) and impregnates the individual mind (auric field), which turns it into a virtual reality as an imaginary thought. The imaginary thought produces an electrical charge in the brain that travels through the nervous system to alter the state of the body to be of the same frequency as the thought by changing its chemical composition and how it behaves. The idea as a virtual (potential) reality, is used by the heart to connect with that same idea (frequency) in the outer environment by resonating with it. By producing the inner reality and behaviors of the idea while simultaneously connecting with the means of fulfillment in the outer world as a co-creation with others and the environment, we willfully act to produce the reality of the idea as both an inner and outer experience of it. So anytime we’re taking the approach of actually working to “heal the body” instead of fixing it, managing its symptoms, or providing a temporary form of relief, we have to approach it by acknowledging the fact that the only person who can heal the body is the person who’s in charge of creating and running the body through its perception, thoughts, and emotional states. All healing is “self-healing”. As Doctors and Practitioners all we can ever really do is provide the education or facilitate the experience that will allow others to do their own work and make the lifestyle changes necessary to heal themselves as a result. The true way to work in energetic terms is to use the proper frequency necessary to induce the proper state of mind, while introducing a suggestion as an intention to form the imaginary thought as an inner experience of the desired reality as if it’s already true and happening (as a memory), which cultivates the proper emotions as the chemistry of the body, which alters its state as its vibratory frequency to match the reality of the thought. The mind and body are always in-sync energetically, and the mind is what produces all of the manifestations of the body, and is the only thing that can permanently transform those manifestations into something else.

Subtle Energy and the Energetic Nature of the Mind

Our body has an energetic structure as well as a physical one. This energetic structure is often referred to as the subtle body or etheric body that’s a form of double our twin to the physical body. Energy can move into and through matter, and is not “formed” like matter as a solid and fixed structure, but rather as a field of energy that’s always vibrating and morphing and changing form based on a constant exchange of energy with everything around it. Subtle energy is comprised of light, as everything is, and so contains within it the properties of light that exist as an octave that’s a range of vibration as its frequency. A light body as the internal aspects of light, contain the full colors of the spectrum as its vibratory structure. Each color within the spectrum vibrates at a slightly different rate and undergoes a specialized “mode of consciousness” as an aspect of an overall vibratory patterning or frequency. The subtle body, like light itself, is invisible to the physical senses, and has an innate structure of seven colors as seven aspects that make up a whole. These subtle energy centers exist in the body as chakras that form the energy processing centers of the body as the “mind” or soul of the body.

The subtle energy centers of the body act as conductors, filtering energies so they can combine through resonance. The convergence of these energy fields along a central axis forms a chakra. These chakras are vortexes of moving and spinning energy, which exist in relationship to the endocrine glands, which produce and secret hormones into the blood stream of the body, which alters our state and controls our bodily functions. Hormones are regulatory chemicals that regulate our physical state to match our mental or energetic state. Our physical condition is always produced as the direct equivalent of our mental and emotional condition.

This subtle energy system of the body “is” the mind or soul of the body. The mind interacts with energy all around it through a natural metabolic and digestive process, and directly acts on the body to stimulate and regulate its biological functions as an expression or correlation of the minds energetic state. Our energetic state is the combination of feelings picked up around us, emotions as the bodily chemistry produced by the feelings, and the thoughts that form the internal reality as imagining that projects the inner state outward, through the mind’s field which extends quite some distance from the body, superimposing it over the outer reality as our perceptual lens, that determines what we see and interact with, and what we don’t.

The chakras of the body process and filter energy through resonance, which draws in and mingles with what’s of the same nature as it is, while rejecting and repelling what’s not. We can only fully absorb into our system what is similar in nature to us, or what is within our same vibratory frequency as being of a “like-mind”. This can also be thought as only absorbing into our mind what can be perceived, explained, and understood using our mental paradigm. Through this fundamental process of resonance as a form of filtering mechanism, energies are sorted out according to their type and class as a category, sphere of consciousness, or kingdom. This filtering system acts to separate the gross energies as our animalistic primal instincts, from the refined energies as our spiritualized moral aspects.

The chakra system of the body is the internal structure of our subtle energy body as the mind itself, or soul that inhabits the body, and bonds to it through energetic sympathy. Because of this reason, the chakra system provides us with the process necessary to undergo healing through psychological development that promotes spiritual growth. All healing comes by bringing the mind and body into harmony through psychological health and conscious awareness of our true nature and our soul’s relationship to the body. It gives us a charted course for working directly with our minds ability to control and regulate the natural biological processes of the body by managing our state-of-mind and fostering in a deliberate manner our moral development. By understanding the intimate relationship of energy with matter, of our higher moral capacities and our lower primal nature, we can transform our ”self” by working with our own energy system, feeling state, and active imagination.

 The mind has the ability to direct energy into form by how and what we thinks about, coupled with strong emotions. Emotion is the chemistry of thought produced through imagined realities. As we think and form images in our mind, we stimulate our body to produce hormones of emotion, and vice versa. The emotions we’re stimulated with from outside sources, also act to control what we focus on and think about as the type of realities associated to the emotions. Thought and emotion are different aspects of the same reality, and are always complementary to each other, as one producing the other. Once acts to stimulate, awaken and give life to the other. Our emotional state always directly reflects the chemistry and biological functioning of the body in direct and immediate relationship with our thoughts and mental state. This is a scientific law, and is always true.

All transformation which involves healing by recognizing our own tendencies, habits, beliefs, and habitual emotional states, comes only through self-realization, knowledge and awareness about our true nature, and our ability to begin using our mind in a conscious and deliberate fashion to intentionally create ourselves. It’s through active use of our own mind, and our ability to choose what qualities we want to develop as a state, and our willingness to give up our current identity in favor of a more desirable one, that we can not only transform the patterning of our mind as our paradigm or interactive model, but in doing so, change our perception, how we interpret events to create our experience of them, and literally transform our physical condition to match our mental condition.

It’s no mystery to the medical world that all healing usually requires a behavioral change as a lifestyle modification, or by working directly with a person’s belief system and identity. All healing in fact, comes only by way of self-healing. We can change how we’re using our mind to direct our behavior and form our experience of reality, and how we identify with our own self-created experiences. We can only change the body, or transform an existing condition, through identifying and working with its emotional and psychological component. Healing our mind is the same as healing our energy, which heals the body to the exact equivalent.

Our attitude and the perception it forms creates how we act, and what kind of activities we engage in, that directly affect our health. The emotional states we dwell in and live out of come as the result of chemistry and regulation of our endocrine system, and what type of thoughts we engage in consistently. Our emotional states tend to run and control us, both in terms of how we think and form internal representations, and how we behave as a result, or what activities we consistently participate in. Thought, which creates a pattern as a reality, fueled by emotion as propulsion, produces all of our behavior and activities. To change one, you change the others simultaneously. They always exist in an intimate relationship with each other as being different components of the same vibration. The mental aspect is causal in nature, and can be used to produce or change the emotions we experience in response to our thoughts, and how we’re being, and what we’re doing as a result.

The body, as the vehicle for expression, can be (is being) operated by the mind which inhabits and animates it. Our mind shapes energy into realities by how we think and imagine, and the body brings our thoughts into physical manifestation as the outer expression of our inner thoughts. We first form inner realities through thinking, that alters the vibration of the body as an emotional response or equivalent to our thoughts that manifest our physical condition as our health, personality and identity, and our way of being in the world by the story we wrap ourselves around and act to naturally tell as the reality produced by our vibratory frequency.

The 4 Elements – The Etheric Body and the Nature of Memory

 

While there are many ways to look at what’s referred to as the 4 Elements, which represent the material realm, one of it’s most primary interpretations is as the very substance of what we think of as the material world as the experience produced by the mind that becomes the basis for memory. Memory, which comes from a reality, has the full building blocks or interactive components of an actual reality even when it exists in it potential or unformed state. The information it’s comprised of and the active force that brings it to life, are the basic “seed” necessary to produce a living reality. A seed as a series of encoded information contains strands of DNA that provide the material as a regenerative process and the spatial blueprints for creating a living form.

The 4 Elements as we’ve come to know them represent Fire, Water, Air, and Earth. These seemingly 4 components only signify 2 actual Elements of Fire and Water, which combined produces Air, and Earth represents the whole combination as a physical reality. In its original depiction, Water and Earth were considered one element, representing three Elements of the Triad or Triangle as the symbol of the 3 aspects of the mind that create an internal reality as the combination of Fire and Water, that was then reflected to produce the outward reality, symbolized by the number 4, or the Tetrad. Fire and Water are symbolic of the masculine and feminine polar aspects of Spirit as a unification. Spirit is traditionally represented as Air or breath. All of Life as we know it is comprised of the 2 Elements of “Yin and Yang”, and the 2 correspondences they form as their offspring which is the combination of them to produce material form.4 elementThe 4 Elements also form the Tetragrammaton, as the sacred name of God, commonly spelled “YHVH”, or YOD-HE-VAU-HE, where Yod represents Fire or Will, He represents Air as intellect, Vau represents Water as Feeling, and the second He represents Earth as the manifestation of will. This spelling, where only two letters are different or unique, though similar in structure to each other (Y V), and two are repeats (H H), is significant of the idea that only 2 true Elements exist as the single or unified constitution of the One- Spirit, and the other two are correspondences as the inner and outer reflection. These can also be seen as representing idea, thought, feeling, and action, which are always unified and create an experience of reality, both internally and externally. They are also always comprised to form a memory which either comes as the result of the manifested idea as the end result, or as the basis used for creating the outer experience as a material reality. Memory is both the beginning and the end, the creator, the outer experience as an event, and the one having the experience. We create our present experiences out of the accumulation of our past experiences as memory. Everything we learn, we acquire as a memory either as an imagined concept of an idea that forms it into an inner reality as a memory, or as an actual experience that contained a lesson and came about by experimenting. Notice that experiment and experience are almost the same word.

When we contemplate an idea and begin thinking about it, we form it into an internal conceptualization as an actual experience of the idea as a reality, or we form an internal representation as a metaphor that serves as a symbolic correspondence. Both of these are formed in our mind in much the same way we construct an actual memory, or replay it as a way of reliving it. There’s no actual difference between a memory created in the imagination of an idea, or one created through an actual event, outside of the fact that the actual event had significantly intense feelings and emotions associated with them. The only memories we attain in a detailed manner from our life experiences, are ones that had a significant emotional impact. The emotion is what forms the structure of the memory in terms of how we interpret it to form a story that we tell ourselves about why it happened and what it means.

soul energy
Memories are formed out of a combination of feeling sensations, emotions, and thoughts that produced distinct actions based on them. The memory, which is in reality a personalized interpretation of an outer neutral event, is activated by the emotion associated with it, or the same sensory content, that then activates the behavioral pattern of the memory, setting into motion a whole automatic pattern that repeats the past in the present, creating more of the same type of memories. This is why 5, as the pentagram or Pentad, symbolic of the etheric Element as “mind over matter”, operates by the principle of “regeneration”, further symbolized by the Fibonacci Sequence of reproduction in which the most recent past brought into the present produces the future, and the holographic affect also called fractal patterns, where the mind simply reproduces more patterns that are of the same nature (memory) as it is.

A memory can be thought of as a state of mind or vibration that contains the pattern as a blueprint for producing a reality in a completely unconscious and automatic fashion. How we create our experiences is based on our state of mind or our soul mood. Memories are living thought-forms shaped by the mind out of the Elements that are viewed and replayed – kept alive – in the imagination as the invisible patterns we picture in our mind over top of actual reality as an invisible or translucent story that we use to restructure our current reality to be of the same nature. We use memory to make our current situation mean the same thing as our past situation did.

birth
This reality that we form in our imagination is shaped out of the Elements as the etheric substance, or Astral Light. Just as light in the material world is actually invisible and only illuminates the atmosphere because it’s being both absorbed and reflected by dust and water particles in the air, is used inwardly by the mind of the individual to form an internal reality, even though it has the “feeling” of an actual visible picture, it’s translucent and invisible and can be viewed by superimposing it over or in front of the outer reality as our perceptual lens that we look through that determines what we see (that matches it and is being absorbed) and what we don’t see (what’s not a part of the same idea and is being reflected. Ideas exist in us in exactly the same way actual memories do, and can be used by the mind to form internal realities by picturing, sensationalizing, and thinking about them.

A thought is an active memory. While thoughts seem to be generated by the mind, they’re actually “tuned into and received” out of the invisible space around us, which is actually light intermingling with water and matter. The light of the material world that’s basically invisible in the physical world, comes from a star (our sun), and is therefore called “Astral Light”. Stars are the only living entities that are a true source of light. Everything else gets its material existence as matter, which is also light as photons, in its condensed form, by either absorbing or reflecting certain aspects or rays of light, which appears to us as colors or solid objects. This Astral Light that forms the Etheric body of all living forms, exists in four primary states as a gradient condensation as; electrified plasma (same substance as stars), gas, liquid, and solid. It’s used by the mind as a gas that behaves like a liquid, and can be shaped instantly into form by thinking. The power of the spoken Word (vibration), spoken both in silence to ourselves as thoughts, and outwardly as talking, comes through it’s ability to form images out of the words as the shapes they represent. As our mind thinks about something, it creates a reality out of it. The inner realities become the basis for outer realities of the same nature. As we think, we become. All of our experiences are our sole creation, produced by how we use our mind to perceive, interpret and tell ourselves a story about things. We shape, grow, and develop ourselves by way of our own story-telling and thought-forms.

pentagramThe 5th Element, represented by the Star or Pentad, represents the quintessence as the Ether body produced by how the mind shapes the 4 Elements into imagined and therefore “willed” realities. The Etheric body exists as a form of memory, or etheric substance that’s an (invisible) double or twin to the material body. The masculine (active and invisible) and feminine (passive and visible) aspects inherent in any physical body as the unification of dual yet complementary opposites. The etheric body forms the memory of the body, evolved by the soul through thinking, emoting, and imagining. The soul is the Astral Body, represented by 6, as another “star” image. The Astral Body is similar to the Air Element, and is the correspondence produced by the combination of Spirit as archetypal memory, and the body as individual memory, or Fire and Water. The soul is composed of accumulated memory acquired by combining archetypal memory to produce a variation as personal memory. As it acquires experiences from the body, it transposes them into personalized memory as the essence of the body, and absorbs and synthesizes it, evolving itself through the memory it attains.

The soul is the medium or intermediary between the Mental or Causal body and the physical – etheric body. Between pure spirit as unadulterated memory and its denser aspect as coagulated, specialized, and concentrated light as matter. Spirit exists in pure essence as archetypes and principles that are drawn on by the soul to bring into the body as a modified interpretation to create a specific experience by way of it. When the universal idea comes into physical expression, it has to come as an introduction of thought as suggestion into the individual form that’s a specialized combination of both physical-genetic and soul memory, that modifies it to fit the container of the individual mind necessary in order to conceive it, where it’s turned into a personalized version of the original. A thought or idea is drawn into the individual soul as a seeded reality that the soul-mind grows and shapes into a possible reality by imagining it that provides the subconscious mind of the body with a pattern for creating a reality out of. Likewise, the human soul, which has the power to create through thinking, feeling, and imagining as the will, creates thought forms as imagined realities formed out of intense emotional states that it dwells in an thinks about over and over, developing it with more detail and variations each time it thinks about it, infusing them with the souls life-force, that creates a form of virtual memory that populates the Astral Plane of the Earth, as our atmosphere or instinctual field of the subconscious mind, and acts the same as universal memory and is “picked up on” by other humans in much the same way they attract and acquire archetypal thoughts and ideas.

This ability to create artificial memory as illusions born out of emotional states and fantasizing about them, is what’s referred to as the collective unconscious, or mass consciousness of the group mind. We can literally tune into and draw into our mind the thoughts of others around us, which come to us in the same way as any thought or memory, out of the clear blue, as a feeling we get or something we just start thinking about as a part of our continuous stream of thoughts. Most of the time we have no idea that we’re thinking someone else’s thoughts, because we only resonate – attract and act as a receiver for – those who have similar thoughts or are vibrating at a similar frequency. Because they’re similar to ours, we mistake them for our own, and often allow them to take hold in us by continuing to think about them. This is also the basis for telepathy and clairvoyance, clairaudience, and clairsentience, all of which come as transmissions in the Astral Plane.

So simply allow yourself to start recognizing the role memory plays as the very foundation for your thinking and imagining. As you think, observe yourself in terms of what it means to think. What is thought? What activities are you engaging in as you form thoughts as imagined concepts and scenarios? How is this similar or different from how you think about actual memories? Allow yourself to realize that all knowledge learned comes through memory of some form, whether simply imagined, memorized through repetition, imagined or conceptualized, or as an actual experience.

vibration

Allow yourself to notice that what you’re thinking about today is very similar if not exactly the same as what you thought about yesterday, last week, or last year. Notice, that all you’re ever really doing, for the most part, is thinking the same type of thoughts born out of the same attitude and temperament consistently throughout our lives, evolving and varying them only slightly through different applications of the same basic ideas. Notice, especially as you get older, that even though your outer circumstances may be quite different today than they were five years ago, that inside, as a person, your nature has remained consistent, and in some cases unchanged. That all we’re ever really doing is growing ourselves by expanding and acquiring new kinds of memory, that evolve us into new ways of thinking, perceiving, and experiencing ourselves and the world around us. That while we believe our thoughts and memories were acquired neutrally or objectively by the events of our life that happened to us beyond our control, and that we’re the “way we are” because of what happened to us along the way, the fact is our life is the way it is because it’s a direct reflection of how we think about it. That what we call our experiences and memories are actually our own creation, and are completely subjective in nature.

While we don’t control the outer events and circumstances of our life, especially as children, how we interpret them internally creating our experience of them, is something we do all by ourselves, to ourselves. It comes completely by how we use the elements to first create an internal experience as feelings, emotion, thoughts, and meaning that form a story about what happened, and why, that forms how we experience and remember it. Long after that events gone, and no longer exists as real, and we’ve grown more mature through years, we still live out of and replay in our mind the same basic group of memories, creating more of the same type of experiences, and living out of the same type of story which becomes a life theme. Stories we told ourselves as children, are still the realities we’re living out of as adults. We shaped our identity as our sense of self out of our own stories about things. We completely live and die by way of our own mind that thinks and feels through our body, producing our experience of reality.

All reality is a product of memory.

Energy Medicine: An Easy way to Understand how Energy Creates and Manifests in the Body

Dreaming
One of the problems we have in understanding energy medicine is that we attempt to look at it through a purely materialistic model, and from an inappropriate orientation. Energy, in terms of how it’s used here, is more accurately called “subtle energy”, which operates according to opposite laws of the material plane, and is complementary in nature, which means they exist in direct relationship to each other, and play different roles in the same overall creative processes that result in a physical manifestation. In this complementary relationship, while we tend to look for the cause of a physical manifestation within the same physical plane, in reality, the physical is ultimately the effect of, or end product of what originates at the mental and emotional level of consciousness. This can be difficult to understand because their relationship is an analogous one, rather than a direct one, and so it’s often not recognized or worked with as the means of actually healing its physical counterpart.

 
We have to begin here by first creating the correct model to look at this idea through, in order to see and recognize what we can’t otherwise see. While we have been taught to think that the “mind” and “consciousness” are a product of the body, or more specifically of the brain, in reality, the mind is an electromagnetic field that’s bonded to the body through sympathetic resonance and is a field of energy as information structured into patterns as a paradigm that’s independent of the body and is what actually activates and operates the body as a fundamental form of expression. The body is operated through various levels of energetic stimulus that initiate a chain reaction that produce and regulate biological and psychological processes of the body.

 
Every chemical process within the body is prompted by an electrical impulse of some sort. These electrical impulses are caused by the consciousness of the body, which has three basic components in its make-up, a mental, emotional, and physical component. These three basic components work in-sync with each other through a natural relationship of passive, active, and equilibrated or unified movement. This correlates to the idea of resonance, sympathetic induction, and coherence. The active force (mental) vibrates the equivalent passive force (emotion), by entering into it and producing an effect that organizes it into a new pattern by forming coherence , harmonizing the two and expressing as a physical behavior. All behavior is emotionally driven, and all emotions have an equivalent psychological component as the patterning (mental concept or memory) that’s activated and set into motion through the emotion. Thought either awakens an emotion in response to it, or the emotions we experience determine what we think about, and the combination forms a new whole as the basis for a physical reality as a story-line that becomes the template (perceptual lens) for our personal experiences.

3 selves
The medium that connects thoughts with the body as a physical equivalent is emotion, or what’s otherwise referred to as the astral plane of the soul. The subconscious mind, which is the passive aspect of the mind that regulates the body, works off of emotional signals it receives from the environment, or that it produces in response to our own imagined thoughts, that it mistaken for an actual event. Emotion is experienced as a direct sensation in the body. Different emotions form different types of sensations in specific areas of the body. These sensations as “activity” that’s located at different parts of the body exist in near proximity to the different endocrine glands, which all work as a dynamic regulatory system that keeps the body and mind in equilibrium by making constant adjustments in response to information being received from others and our environment as feeling-emotions. Our emotional state is produced by hormones secreted by the endocrine glands and deposited directly into our blood stream which adjusts the state of the body to match the state of the mind as the inner and outer equalization.

 
Our biological state and our mental state are always the equivalent of one another as a dynamic relationship that determines and directly influences all biological processes conducted by our neurological system that directly affects the major systems and organs of the body. The hormones produced by the endocrine system are both regulatory, regulating the basic processes of the body, and emotional in nature, designed to produce automatic behaviors in response to our outer environment. Hormones determine how we feel, what we focus on and think about, what mood we’re in, what emotions we experience, and how our body functions as a direct correspondence to our own emotional thoughts and beliefs, and the realities they naturally produce in our imagination, which the subconscious mind interprets in the same manner as an actual experience and regulates the body and behaviors accordingly.

 
Emotions are “held in the body” as sensations that form an energetic tension. Emotions that are experienced a lot, keep the body stimulated and tense in the same locations repetitively and consistently. Our emotional states tend to control our thoughts, produce our behaviors, which are unconscious and automatic, as well as conscious and deliberate. Whatever emotional state we tend to live out of as a general rule, and what behaviors we engage in as our daily lifestyle, produce a physical “affect” as the end result. Most, if not all physical maladies are a direct result of our lifestyle, which are routine behaviors that we unconsciously engage in as our everyday experience of life. Once a behavior becomes a habit, a part of a natural routine that we do without having to “think about it”, just as we lose awareness of what we’re doing, we fail to recognize the physical results of eating poorly, thinking in ways that keep us stressed out, living in constant emotional dramas that are upsetting and often traumatizing keeping us bathed in negative emotions, fail to exercise, exposing ourselves to chemical toxins, maintaining relationships that produce negative emotions and bad experiences, and so on, all without realizing that these tendencies are producing health problems, both physically and mentally. When physical ailments manifest, we don’t associate them to the behaviors that cause them, and the emotional and psychological pattern that motivated the behavior.

meditating
Energy as consciousness is whole and complete, and contains in it all the components and properties that make-up and are necessary to produce a physical reality. Consciousness as the electromagnetic energy field that surrounds, permeates, and informs our body, is always extending into the environment around us, interacting with it, and exchanging energy-consciousness with it. Our consciousness is taking in and metabolizing all the energy around us that’s of the same nature or vibratory frequency as we are through a metabolic process of absorption, digestion and assimilation, and elimination. We take in (receive) whatever is of the same vibratory frequency as a “range of expression” as we are, and can therefore be absorbed into our system through sympathetic resonance, that adjusts our energy system by integrating it, and altering our vibratory frequency by way of it. Frequencies contain whole patterns that modify our mental paradigm and alter our behaviors that are deemed appropriate and necessary in response to our environment.

 
This natural process of energy exchange is how our internal state is always being adjusted to match our outer environment, as a means of functioning within it in order to survive and thrive. We not only exchange energy as chemistry with our environment, but we also exchange emotions, thoughts, feelings, mental impressions, ideas, and so on, through a form of transmission. We are always undergoing an exchange of consciousness with everything around us all the time. Not only through the air we breathe, the food we eat, the water we drink, but also the emotions being displayed and projected, and the mental impressions of the thoughts everyone around us is thinking. We are always responding to our environment and our environment is always responding to us through emotional signals that are both being transmitted and received. We simply have to build an intuitive awareness around what exists as invisible forces that while they can’t be seen or heard, they can be felt and realized.

Energy Medicine is an approach that addresses the whole person and takes all components of the mind, soul and body into account when attempting to determine the cause of a physical malady by looking at the entire conscious make-up of the individual and the lifestyle they live consistently, and the relationships they maintain on an ongoing basis. It combines both biological and psychological treatments. It looks at the person’s whole life as a means of understanding how they’ve created what results in a physical illness, disease, or cancer. It seeks to recognize the dynamic relationship that exists between the spirit, the soul, and the body and a unified expression, and work from the level of cause by resolving the psychological and emotional aspects that are producing the behaviors and lifestyle that are ultimately resulting in dis-ease of some sort.
By transforming the mental and emotional aspects, releasing the tension in the body and the behaviors causing the malady, the person is able to heal themselves by changing themselves. All healing comes from some form of personal transformation by changing the cause to one that produces health and a deepened sense of well-being by balancing what was previously out of balance, restoring the whole system to harmony. With harmony comes a sense of happiness, inner peace and contentment that produces its equivalent as our physical condition and outer reality.

2 Forgotten Healing Herbs of Christmas (skin balm recipe included!)

3 Magi
Posted by Nick Polizzi

We’re eight days away from Christmas and the team and I have been busy unraveling some of the medical mysteries associated with this ancient midwinter tradition.

Tucked quietly into many of the world’s most celebrated holidays are hidden codes, sacred symbolism, and my personal favorite – valuable and often forgotten medicines. In certain cases, we have to dig a little in order to find the deeper wisdom in these annual celebrations, but not with Christmas. This one wears its healing jewels in plain sight, like ornaments on a tree.

3wisemenToday, we’re going to visit the Three Wise Men, who famously paid a fateful visit to Jesus in the moments after his birth. Also known as “The Magi,” which is the root of the English word magician, the bible says that these distinguished foreigners came bearing three special gifts. One of the gifts was pure gold, but the other two may have been a far more valuable offering. These were the herbs frankincense and myrrh.3 Magi

Yes, frankincense and myrrh are best known for their use as incense in religious rituals, but make no mistake, these revered herbs are potent medicines that have been used by healers throughout history to treat everything from serious infection to hair loss. Let’s take a closer look at each one.

Frankincense: Boswellia sacra, Boswellia carter

Dating back to Sumerian times, this fragrant resin was often transported via large caravans across the desert from eastern African and Arabian regions, including Yemen, Oman, Ethiopia and Somalia. Its use as a medicine most likely started with the ancient Egyptians who also charred it to make the famous black kohl eyeliner that adorned the faces of their noble women. Frankincense is central to almost every major religion from this region of the world, but its healing value often goes unmentioned in the history books.frankincense

frankincense For starters, frankincense oil has been used for millennia to help balance out the emotions and achieve a happier, more connected life. Modern science tells us that frankincense is rich in compounds known as sesquiterpenes, that have the ability to pass the blood-brain barrier and stimulate the region of our brain that controls our feelings. One of the most common biomarkers of this plant, incensole acetate, is a known antidepressant that has shown very promising effects.

The oil is also extremely beneficial for the skin and hair. It can be applied topically to treat dry skin, smoothen wrinkles, and strengthen hair roots. After battle, it was often relied upon to disinfect wounds, sooth muscle pain and reduce swelling. Because of its known anti-inflammatory properties, frankincense oil is often prescribed by naturopaths to treat patients who are suffering from rheumatoid arthritis.

Fun fact: archaeologists found frankincense resin in King Tut’s tomb in ancient Egypt. A truly medicinal treasure!

Myrrh: Commiphora myrrha

Like frankincense, myrrh is native to Northern Africa and the Middle East, including Ethiopia and Yemen. This revered plant resin actually appears in one of the oldest Egyptian medical texts, Ebers Papyrus, which dates back to 1550 B.C.! This is a clear testament to how popular it was among ancient cultures for its curative effects. But why?myrrh_gum_powder1

myrrh_gum_powderBeyond its use as a fragrance and for embalming purposes, early civilizations saw that it possessed quite a few healing properties. The Egyptians bought boatloads of it from the Phoenicians for use in skin salves that were applied to wounds, sores and burns. By this time, early doctors had already recognized myrrh’s antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, and analgesic effects, and it was prescribed for a wide array of physical ailments, including: cough, asthma, indigestion, rashes and scrapes, burns, skin infection, hemorrhoids, joint pain, and sore throat.

It was also used as a rejuvenating facial and massage treatment for women.

Both of these sacred substances have endured quite a journey over the past five millennia. They were even forbidden by certain religions for quite some time because of their association with pagan rituals – but it’s hard to keep a good medicine under wraps. Frankincense and myrrh are now celebrated worldwide for their religious significance, but it is up to us to spread the word about their extreme healing potential and put them to good use!

If you are feeling adventurous and would like to create your own healing balm from these two timeless herbs, we have included a recipe below!

How to make your own skin balm with frankincense and myrrh:

(Makes about 3 cups)

To make this recipe, you will need either a slow cooker or double boiler. If you don’t have either, you can fashion yourself a makeshift double boiler using a metal or glass mixing bowl and slightly smaller pot filled with a bit of water.

balm1INGREDIENTS:balm1

2 cups olive oil
20 drops frankincense essential oil
20 drops myrrh essential oil
2/3 cup beeswax
4 glass or metal sealable containers

INSTRUCTIONS:

• Construct your double boiler or slow cooker and bring to the appropriate low heat.

• Add the olive oil and allow to come to temperature. About 7 minutes.

• Add the beeswax, stirring until dissolved.

• Add frankincense and myrrh essential oils and stir gently for 5 minutes.

• Pour into storage containers. Leave the lids off until fully cool.

Once you allow this fragrant oil to cool for about 20 to 30 minutes, it will firm up into a nicely textured balm that you can apply directly to the skin.

Enjoy!

Happy Holidays,

Spiritual Healing – “Life Crisis serves to Transforms Us”

bit by bit

When we ask the question “what is spiritual healing”, while all spiritual ideas are dynamic and multi-dimensional (have layered meaning), we would have to first begin by bringing definition to the terms being used as ideas that imply the processes involved in working intentionally with them through awareness. Human beings are basically what we call 3-part beings, consisting of body, soul, and spirit. These three aspects are always working in harmony with each other as our mind-body system. Our spiritual essence is equivalent to our mind, our body to our habits and behaviors, and our soul to the combination of the two as the “experiences” they create in unison.

The spirit, which is equivalent to the mind, is largely our mental-thought oriented self which is a natural expression of our paradigm (model), while our soul is comprised of accumulated memory of our life experiences as a form of life-story or biography that we’re always in the process of telling by how we live our life. While these three aspects are always expressing as one, our spiritual aspect is causal as the mental paradigm we live out of, that’s a form of vibratory frequency as a biological tuning device that projects (puts off) and attracts (draws into itself) more thoughts of the same nature that are compliant (of the same frequency) with its paradigm (model of the world). Our mind is the invisible energy field that surrounds and permeates our body, that acts as a filtering mechanism for conceiving in the outer environment what matches it as thoughts and ideas that enter into it as a form of suggestion through resonance and sympathetic induction, which we experience as our own natural thought processes. We draw into us, become one with and integrate whatever is of the same vibration as we are around us, and as a result, undergo a constant form of subliminal transformation that’s subtle and gradual, creating variations that are based out of the same vibration as a life theme. We attract and act as a receiver for whatever elements around us that can be used to structure the same type of reality as a thematic story that gives us a consistent experience of our outer life as the reflection or direct correspondence to our inner life.

The soul, which acts as the medium that bonds the mind to the body and shares properties of both (the mind and the body), links ideas as feelings to the body through emotions that are associated to memories. The idea as a thought enters our mind, and is shaped by astral light in the imagination into a living reality as an adaptation of a universal idea (archetype) that’s used to form a personalized experience as a variation. The universal idea is modified by the body and personality, and the soul as a mental paradigm built up out of accumulated memory that’s emotionally based and acquired through all factors involved, such as: the individual, their maturity and level of consciousness, the conditions they exist within, their circumstances, situation, culture, era, and so on, that modifies the original idea as a kind of template into a personal experience. The idea as a feeling (vibration) forms a series of thoughts that are transmitted from the higher or universal mind and is receiver by the soul as the lower mind, where it stimulates (awakens) an emotion and a memory of the same nature in the soul-body (memory that’s unified) as a natural response to it, that are used to further modify the correlating idea into an experience within our current reality. This idea as a thought-form, matched with its equivalent emotion and memory, formed in the imagination as a possible reality or tangible concept, acts as a program or template for the body-consciousness to act out through the behavior the reality implies, as its physical (actual) expression.

Subtle Energy of the Mind
One way we can think of this is that the idea as it originates in the Universal Mind exists in a waveform of pure potential as literally billions of possible variations of a single idea or pattern, modified by how it’s adapted through the channel (person or body) it expresses through. Though it forms a variation, it’s still an expression of the same basic idea as an analogous correspondence. When it’s received by a local-individual mind, a form of selection takes place, and only one possibility out of billions becomes expressed as a personalized version of the greater idea.

Whereas in modern society we’ve been taught to dissociate the mind from the body, and many people don’t even have a clear concept of what the soul actually is, we associate the idea of healing with the ailments and manifestations of the body, and take the approach of healing the body by purely physical means. By repairing it, changing it’s chemistry through drugs, replacing parts with synthetic fabrications or transplants, often, without ever identifying or addressing the actual cause as a paradigm (structured pattern) of the mind, driven by emotion and beliefs of some sort that create behaviors which manifest as illness and disease in the body. Because we don’t realize that energy as consciousness manifests consistently through vibratory patterning, and that all physical conditions have a psychosomatic component as karma (memory) of some sort, we never heal at the emotional and mental levels, and the same pattern simply manifests in a new way, or the same disease remains active and is controlled instead by drug therapies that simply act to manage the symptoms. This tends to keep us hopelessly in the realm of affect, looking only for “causes” that are also purely physical in nature.

Feelings are Vibrations with Patterns Inherent in them

To heal at the soul-spirit level, is to become aware of whatever is working in your life at the subconscious level. It’s to gain self-awareness by realizing what moods and emotional states you embody and live out of, what type of thoughts you tend to think on a regular basis, what memories you use to tell your life story out of, and what type of internal realities you create as a result. These internal realities, as giving form to thoughts, infusing them with emotions that motivate action of some sort that are connected to them that shapes them into thematic realities that are offspring of the memories which acts as an organizing or composing mechanism, structuring our current reality into the same idea by how we perceive and interpret it, that forms life-themes. These themes are based on the meaning we give things, which shapes the story we tell about them. The story we tell means something about us, about other people, and about the way the world is. We are always creating 3-levels of reality simultaneously through the story we tell ourselves “about” things.

The energy we hold and are comprised of, that forms our thoughts, emotions and internal realities, are also felt as distinct feeling sensations in our body. These feelings have distinct qualities to them, and are associated to our inner energy system known as the chakras. Each chakra, located at different parts of the body, are associated with our major organs and endocrine glands, which effect natural processes of the body thru emotional states that are regulatory in nature. Our emotions, which are a response to our own thoughts or stimulus in our environment, arise in us as the hormones secreted through our endocrine glands that instantly alter our state by producing body chemistry. Our emotions are the fluid-like connection with the astral or instinctual plane that connects us with our surroundings, other people, animals, and all of Nature. The astral / instinctual fields of the physical realm of emotions have “patterns” inherent in them as memory or thought-forms that motivate behavior and produce realities as the expression of the emotion. Where ever we experience and hold these emotions in our body, effects the organs and processes associated with that part of the body, and over-time, manifest in some way, producing distinct symptoms, which give us a warning to a condition that’s forming in us.

Behaviors of all kinds are largely automatic in nature, habitual and predominately emotionally driven. Often, the emotions we engage in produce behaviors as their expression or as a means of coping somehow, that cause us to engage in activities that directly produce the illness and disease that we become afflicted with. Even when we know they’re “not good for us”, or causing problems of some sort, we have trouble giving them up because we associate pleasure and comfort of some sort with them. Because of our own mental and emotional ways of forming internal representations of things, we create a sense of pleasure with the very thing we need to give up, while creating a feeling of deprivation and suffering around the idea of quitting that behavior and replacing it with another behavior. Often, choosing to take the risk of known consequences, and act in a round-about way to commit a slow form of suicide.

The Healing Power of Awareness
Spiritual healing is basically bringing what is unconscious in yourself, into full awareness, where you can see your own tendencies as behavioral dynamics. You can begin observing your own mind, and in doing so recognize your own thoughts, feelings, and emotions, what you tend to focus on and imagine as normal everyday thoughts, and what you tell yourself about your own imaginings that give meaning to your life. The meaning you give things acts to shape you, others, and your perception of the world by way of the same story as a theme of some sort. This theme acts as a template for superimposing over the external environment in order to reshape it into your story by how you interpret it to make it mean something. Meaning is a function of our higher, creative mind. Things only mean what we say they mean.

Any unconscious tendencies as life-patterns (karma) or behavioral dynamics, are projected onto others and our environment, forming the perceptual lens we look through and what we see that matches it, that we then form a strong reaction to (resonance), that causes us to go unconscious (no longer present in the objective sense), accessing a memory (of the past) that’s associated with the emotion we’re experiencing (in the present), that becomes the basis for creating an illusion in place of objective reality, where we engage automatically, without awareness of what we’re actually doing through a reactive state. This reaction, recreates the same type of experience in the present of the memory from the past.

The emotional memory has a behavioral dynamic in it as a drama of some sort which acts as the unifying aspect that’s acted out with others who share the same type of illusion and participate fully by taking on complementary roles in acting it out, which is how we can recognize our own tendencies, by indulging in emotional reactions that always create the same type of experiences, that’s formed by a theme of some sort. These themes are ideas such as; not being loved or wanted, not being good enough, betrayal, abandonment, being deceived, rejected, and so on. Though all of humanity shares the same basic themes, which is how we act them out together, each new variation of a theme is produced by “twists in the plot” that comes about through unique combinations based on the individuals or groups involved and what situations or circumstances they’re being acted out in.

Self-Realization
Once we can learn to self-reflect and through introspection observe our own emotions, triggers, and habitual thoughts, and can begin recognizing the story we’re always in the process of telling of selves, we can “see” the “illusion” we’re living out of as an emotional reaction that first acts to produce, then maintain the illusion. Once we can “see” in ourselves what’s acting to control and jerk us around in our environment, and recognize the themes we live out of, just the awareness itself loosens the grip it holds on us. By “seeing” it, we separate from it, and can distinguish it as a false reality that we made up in our mind as a means of trying to make sense of something, or as a dynamic we became conditioned to and so tend to act it out through triggers of some sort without awareness of what we’re doing or why we’re exactly doing it. Through this self-recognition in our own lives, realizing our unconscious tendencies, they no longer cause us to go unconscious in response to them, and by remaining conscious, we not only fail to see (or react) them anymore, but realize we have a choice, and can act in a whole new way to the same stimulus, and produce a whole new type of experience as a result.

We know we’ve healed from an unconscious tendency because what used to cause a strong reaction in us, no longer bothers us. The same stimulus, no longer stimulates a reaction in us. We remain neutral and unaffected in its presence. The emotions being expressed in a situation no longer enter into us and activate that same emotion in us. Because we shift our vibration through self-awareness and the realization that it brings, we no longer attract “into us” the thoughts of the false reality, and because we’ve learned the lesson the illusion was teaching us, we no longer attract (react to) the people necessary to keep acting it out and reproducing the same type of experiences. In this way, we have resolved karma by no longer creating our life out of emotional memories as illusions, and break the pattern that bound us, freeing us to act out a new pattern that will act to tell a new type of story with our life. In this, we will act to attract new thoughts that produce new feelings that form inner imaginings that turn them into a template for expressing as a channel of expression that brings the inner reality into the outer reality as an analogous experience.

In this way we have healed at the spiritual level of the soul, which is memory based, by tuning ourselves to a higher vibration, that expresses as a new story, told with new types of people. We forget about the old thoughts, because they’re no longer naturally produced by our new state. We no longer tune into, access and act as a receiver for them. All memory is state based. When we are fluently involved in an experience, then our state changes, we move into a new experience, and we can no longer remember the old experience, much like waking from a dream, and as you move from a sleeping state to an awakened one, you steadily lose the memory of your dream, and what you do retain as residue gradually fades throughout the day. You know you’ve healed when you forget. When thoughts of it no longer comes to mind, and even when reminded and trying to recapture the memory, it feels detached, distant and no longer apart of us. As if we are seeing the memory as someone else’s life, a movie that we know intimately, but not as being in the experience itself, but as watching it like a movie from a detached position.

The True Nature of Healing: “Transformation that Evolves us to a Higher Level of Creativity”

fibanaci man

Personal transformation is when we take something that has fully manifest in the physical realm, and return it a fluid like creativity. When we stop growing and become stuck in repetitive dramas as life patterns, we stop evolving, and in many instances, begin devolving or actually regressing. Evolution is a continuous creativity as growth that undergoes a steady form of transformation by way of stages of growth through “life situations” that are the means of playing out patterns as thematic dramas that are a story of some sort. These patterns are often the result of what we call our “issues” or unconscious tendencies. We stay stuck in our issues by continuing to act them out through a variety of relationships, and in all areas of our life, and for this reason they become “life themes” as our life story. They usually involve ideas like not being wanted, not being loved, being abandoned, betrayed, rejected, deceived, feeling inferior, and so on. Our whole perceptual model is developed around them, or by way of them, so that we perfectly attract into out life what’s ideal for acting them out.

Life themes are holistic patterns that have several roles in that pattern necessary to act it out as a joint-creation. We are not conditioned to just one role in the pattern, but to the whole pattern where we can play any role in it, and often act to switch back and forth between roles. We act to initiate the behavior that sets the pattern into motion as an activating mechanism in others, then fully participate in whatever role we naturally fall into through the nature of the relationship, then experience it as being done to us by others, while often not owning our own part in its creation. Our conditioning trains us to an interactive dynamic as a thematic pattern that acts out a certain type of story consistently throughout every area of our life. Part of the reason we can’t see this is because we are only partially conscious or aware of what we’re doing, and when we are in other aspects of the pattern, we’re experiencing it from a different perspective where we’re telling ourselves something different about why we’re doing whatever it is we’re doing, and so it seems different. The reason we have for doing whatever we’re doing, makes it “about” something else, and as a result, we don’t see it for what it actually is as a part of the same interactive pattern.

For example: If we’re always feeling “unwanted”, we form a kind of perceptual filter that can interpret any kind of behavior to “mean” we’re not wanted. It’s the perceptual theme that structures and organizes our experiences, giving us the same “type” of experiences over and over. We then produce behavior that either causes us to be rejected, or, we act in ways that cause other people to feel “unwanted” or rejected by us, and they respond to us in a like manner, rejecting us somehow, and we have the experience, once again, of not being wanted without ever realizing (or owning) our “part” in creating it. We fail to recognize that we are actually at “cause” in our own life and are always the one creating our experiences. Knowing this, whatever we experience as being done “to us” by another, we can turn and self-reflect by asking ourselves how we may have acted to co-create this, by doing the same thing to them, not in terms of our “reason” or what we told ourselves about what and why we were doing it, but in terms of our actual behavior towards them.

So personal transformation as self/life creation only comes by way of identifying our own tendencies and what type of dynamics we tend to play out and create our life experiences through, and becoming aware of aspects of that dynamic that we tend to act out without direct awareness and continue to participate in creating through the type of people we attract, are attracted to, and how we also act to initiate or react to that same idea, that ultimately leads us to acting out the same story leaving us with the same feeling.

Feelings as States have Whole Realities Inherent in them:
Another way that we can look at this idea is that feelings as a mood, always acts to produce the reality that matches and expresses the mood. Whatever mood we’re in determines what type of things we focus on, look for and think about as imagined scenarios we run through our mind as a form of mental rehearsal. We picture it in a way that makes it mean something, and the meaning determines what type of story we tell ourselves about it, and what emotions we form as a reaction to our own imaginings, that forms the basis for our behavior which creates an outer experience that matches the inner experiences in terms of how it makes us feel. The outer becomes and analogy of the inner state that acts to produce it as an actual experience. Whatever we imagine to be real, and therefore true, we automatically act out by how we behave and how we interact with others that cause them to feel the same way and react in a like manner to our own initiation that willingly participates in co-creating a shared reality as the expression of the mood.

Whatever mood we’re in, determines how we experience our daily life. It determines what, in any situation, you look for, notice, abstract, and use as the elements to tell the same type of story, making it a reality. Our mood forms our mind-set, which creates out of that mood, to express and amplify the mood itself. The reality we create, born out of the same feeling, serves to give more of the same feeling.

Your life is the way it is because of the mood you most often embody that serves as the channel for expressing the mood by using it to shape your experiences. How you experience your life is a direct reflection of the mood you’re in. Change your mood and your experience changes accordingly. To transform your reality you have to start by transforming your state of mind. In order to do this, we have to work by way of the laws that create our state as a unified field of mind, body, and soul. We have to gain a working understanding of the anatomy of a “state” in order to work with it in a deliberate and intentional manner.

Our state of mind is based on three basic components:

1. What we focus on and give our attention to.

2. What we tell ourselves about what we’re focused on that gives it meaning.

3. And our physiology or what we’re doing with our body.

By changing what we’re focused on, and the story we’re running through our mind as an imaginary reality, is directly reflected in our physiology. It forms our mental state which becomes the emotional template for shaping our experiences to produce more of the same feeling. If you feel you can’t change your focus or the stories you keep running through your mind, work with your physiology instead. Change what you’re doing with your body. These three aspects are always in alignment with each other, and by changing any one; you change the other two automatically.

3 selves

Allow yourself to notice that moods have distinct behaviors associated with them. Our body is always expressing or directly reflecting our state of mind. Depression and melancholy have very specific types of behavior associated with them, such as tired, wiped out, lazy, no energy, sitting slumped, keeping the room dark, sleeping a lot, isolating yourself, and so on. Likewise, a happy mood also has behaviors associated with it – energetic, active, excited, using a lot of gestures, laughing, giggling, a lot of facial expressions, talking, and so on. For example, if you’re indoors, in artificial lighting, sitting down and feeling tired, just the act of going outside and going for a walk will shift your state of mind, and you’ll naturally feel more uplifted, energetic, and happier, and what you think about and how you feel will change to match the positive state. It’s impossible to feel sad while laughing. The “jogger or hikers high” is a biological fact. When we exercise our body produces endorphins, which are not only an internal form of morphine, which acts as a pain reliever, but also induces an elevated state of mind. It puts you in a positive frame of mind and makes you feel happier.

The Power of Affirmations
One of the easiest ways to change our state of mind and what we’re focused on is through a process called auto-suggestion, which is a form of self-hypnosis based on using affirmations as suggestions that you form realities out of by imagining them. The proper use of affirmations is to intentionally refocus your mind and use your imagination to create an inner reality of the affirmation as if you are experiencing it. By repeating it with intensity, forming it as an imaginary picture or scenario while infusing it with sensations, you create it as an experience that becomes a form of virtual memory that acts to give your subconscious mind a pattern for producing natural thoughts and behaviors. Whatever we concentrate on with intensity, builds that thought up into an instant reality that programs the subconscious mind to act it out and attract it in the environment. Affirmations are designed to give a positive command to the subconscious mind in the form of a living concept as a reality that can be used in the same manner as an actual memory. By imagining an idea in sensory detail while infusing it with strong positive emotions, we also tune ourselves to that vibration, modifying our overall vibratory frequency which acts as a tuning device or magnet for attracting more of the same vibration as the elements that are ideal for creating more of the same type of idea. Through the act of imagining it, we imprint it on our mind like a form of template that forms our perceptual lens that sees only what matches it or is of the same idea.

The mind, as an energy field conceives of ideas as patterns for creating personalized realities. We can intentionally design the patterns we want to “hold” and create out of by imagining them “as if” they are happening, as real experiences. The subconscious mind which controls all behavior and extends from the body several feet into our immediate environment, is programmed by memories as “significant emotional events” that provide it with a pattern to create out of by connecting with the appropriate elements of that same idea all around us, and using them to structure more of the same type of experience. Memories of various sorts, whether actual or virtual, give the subconscious mind automated patterns to create out of in an ongoing and automatic fashion. The largest part of our life is being created and conducted at the unconscious level, meaning, without our direct awareness or conscious (deliberate) intention. While we are preoccupied with thinking, and often not present, we are acting out unconscious automatic behaviors that are creating our outer experiences through a constant and ongoing interaction.

By using affirmations to produce internal realities made real with strong feelings and sensory details, we act on ourselves to program our own mind with the type of reality we want to create. This is the most basic form of transforming ourselves from the inside-out. It creates a paradigm shift as a modification in our programming that spontaneously produces an equivalent outer experience of the same type of idea. While this “imagined idea as an actual reality” acts as a form of universal template, how it shows up as an external experience depends on what it (the mind) has to work with in the immediate environment in order to form the same type of pattern. How it shows up is hardly ever like we imagined it, but more as an analogy to it, or of a corresponding (like) nature. It’ll be the same type of idea produced and acted out by different elements. How it appears may be different, but it’ll be a similar reality as an experience. Because an affirmation is based on how we use our imagination to produce what “we want”, there are rules to creating affective ones.

Creating an Affirmation:

1. Form it as a positive statement of what you want to experience as a form of command.

2. Stated in the present tense.

3. Spoken (internally or externally) with strong emotion and intensity.

4. State it in a sentence or rhyme, that’s easy to remember and has a rhythmic beat to it, like a poem.

5. Imagine your statement as an actual reality, as the experience of it.

6. Infuse it with sensory details – what are you seeing, feeling, hearing, touching, smelling, and what are you telling yourself about it?

7. Create the experience in such a way that it produces strong positive emotions that make it compelling.

The best time to say or imagine affirmations is during the time when you’re naturally in a hypnotic state, when you’re between waking and sleeping consciousness. At night, right as you’re falling asleep, and first thing in the morning as you wake. These are the times when we’re conscious enough to intentionally introduce a thought< while our subconscious is still active and readily accepts the command as an actual memory.

The Secret to Affirmations:
Affirmations should always concern the spirit, soul, and body. They should be designed to work on the self, and never involve anyone else, or in an attempt to manifest material objects or situations. By involving others we attempt to violate their choice and free will, and act “on them” through self-interest or selfish means which may not be in their best interest. Sometimes the situation we imagine will give us a certain type of feeling from the experience it produces, won’t serve to give us that feeling at all, so imagining it in that context while focused on that feeling is a contradiction. We should never set goals or wishes that require the cooperation of other people to fulfill. They should always be about us, about a feeling we desire to have, and are within our own power to create through our own actions. They should be designed as a way of “reprogramming” ourselves to new ways of being, perceiving and behaving.

For example: eliminating or transforming habits and addictions, ennobling our character, transforming negative traits into positive ones, developing good health, promoting and developing talents and abilities, being successful, and so on. If wishing for a relationship, don’t place a specific person in it, but rather concentrate on the feeling you want to have through the relationship while making the individual neutral or symbolic.

Wishes that have nothing to do with ones own personality can’t be realized. All programming is self-programming. Only work with one at a time, and don’t switch until it’s been fully realized to the desired level. The trick to learning how to manifest with the mind, is learning how to “concentrate thought” and build-up ideas as realities that become substitute memories that act to “rewire your neurology” according to those virtual memories. By changing your neurology, you’ll change your experiences and what and who you attract as a “match” to you. Do not work with multiple ideas at once, scatter your energy, or get distracted and move on to other ideas before that one has fully manifest as an essential part of yourself. The magic of transformation comes by way of will as concentrated and intensified thought. Concentrate fully on a single idea repeatedly until it takes hold and becomes a part of your daily experience. Once it’s manifest to the desired level, then you can work on another one.
