The Relationship between DNA, the Subconscious Mind, and the Subtle Body

The formula for multiple levels of self-creation as a dynamic combination of the spirit, soul, mind, and body, currently being re-discovered by modern science, was laid out as a diagram illustrating the “subtle bodies” in Esoteric Sciences thousands of years ago. This map of the subtle bodies was used as the basis for all forms of healing and self-development, and as the means of achieving self-mastery which was necessary in order to consciously undergo the process of personal transformation from a lower state of consciousness to a higher one. This diagram illustrated the hierarchical relationship of the mind and body as fields nested within fields that brought an idea as an invisible archetypal field of information into physical form through the principles represented by the five elements. It showed a physical body with various layers of an outer aura or electromagnetic field as the etheric plane which formed the blueprint for the physical body, the astral or emotional body, the mental plane of thought, and the causal field of archetypes and Will.

While we have a tendency to separate parts of a whole, then create a whole out of the part while imagining that it functions independently as a separate entity from the whole in which it was abstracted, the fact is every single aspect of a whole operates according to the same principles and can’t be accurately understood as a separate state. All material bodies as we know them are accompanied by an electromagnetic field that acts to organize the individual particles into a whole living system as a “field of information”. Yet this isn’t an entirely accurate model either, because in reality all biological forms come as a process of cellular regeneration , where one cell replicates itself and divides to become two, which then replicates and divides to become four, then eight, then sixteen, and so on, and grows through a process of “halving and doubling”. All cells contain information as DNA for producing every aspect of the whole body, where cells differentiate and specialize by what aspects of the total information are turned on and off, forming a new configuration. Our entire body forms a hologram where the part exists and contains the information of the whole, and the whole exists as or in each part.

What we refer to as the electromagnetic field that accompanies all physical form, which of course is invisible, exists as what we also refer to as the “mind” of the body, and the “phantom effect” produced by DNA itself as a measurable field of organized information as what has traditionally been called the “etheric body”, or subtle body which is holographic in nature as a three-dimensional form that’s the exact duplicate of the material body. This “holographic, phantom-like form” is what we now know provides the blueprint for organizing and spatially locating the specialized cells within the body. This energetic field both organizes the information in the DNA to produce a duplicate as its twin in physical form, and radiates from within the DNA as a means of “informing the space around it”. Just as all atoms are comprised of a group of particles held together forming an intelligent living system by an invisible force, the whole body is fabricated through a process of regeneration, held together, vitalized, and operated by an invisible force called the “subtle body” which is itself produced and operated by the mind.

       Science has now discovered and proven that matter is composed of light as “packets of information” that exist simultaneously as both a particle (local) and a wave (non-local). These packets of information as subtle energy are organized into a coherent field of information as the subtle body, which provides the etheric blueprint (hologram) for creating the body as a projection of the mind and soul. What appears as trillions of cells that make up our whole body are actually the “same cell” duplicated, differentiated, and multiplied to form a “greater whole” as specialized functions of the same thing.  DNA is composed of both matter and etheric substance that’s organized by an electromagnetic field that produces a holographic form as the “potential” contained within the information.  The molecular structure of our body operates in a unified manner where the DNA within the nucleus or brain of the cell receives, processes and interprets, and transmits information instantaneously “as” a whole – as if it’s one field or body – and interacts with and responds to the outer reality as a relationship with itself on a greater scale. Information doesn’t follow a physical pathway of communication from cell to cell, nor is it transmitted through the nervous system, but received by the DNA of each cell instantaneously at the exact same time.

The body (any living organism) is formed through the holographic principle where every cell of the body results from the regeneration of a single cell through the process of mitosis, and is all in fact one and the same thing formed from a single (double helix) strand of DNA as the basic information used to construct the body. They’re all formed by the same group of information as memory, and become unique parts that perform specialized functions based on how the information is reconfigured through a “switching system” that turns information within the cell on and off, forming dynamic sequences. The part becomes the whole, and the whole is contained within the part. If we take any part (cell) out of the whole system we’ve  got all the information it takes to make the entire organism in the single cell.

DNA, when abstracted and separated from the body it originated in, still continues to respond as if it’s still a part of the body. It’s still a part of the “unified field” from whence it came through a state of energetic “entanglement”. The part contains the properties of both the particle and the wave, and exists as both simultaneously and continues to operate according to the duality of light (photons), which is the primary substance of matter. It operates according to the principles of particle/wave duality. Light and matter (which is essentially the same thing) exhibit both properties of a wave and particle as a single entity that exists throughout space and time, and can act on itself to interfere with itself when demonstrating wave-like properties, and influences itself into new and varied configurations by acting to turn different aspects on or off. Each cell of a whole body vibrates to the exact same frequency, and frequencies as electromagnetic fields propagate through space, which acts as a medium for them.

       Light is made up of “packets of information”, much like an atom is formed out of a cluster of particles, as energy quanta called photons. Photons exist as a “wave of potential or possibility”, much like all the information contained in a single strand of DNA, and only appears as a stable material form (particle) when organized or frozen into a specific configuration by the mind that interacts with it, and then returns to a flow of photons as a wave function when not being organized by a mind. While we have been taught to see an atom as an organized system of particles rotating around a nucleus in a fixed manner, we now know that this isn’t true. The atom only appears as a fixed and stable system when it’s being “viewed” and perceived by the mind. When no one is “looking at it”, it returns to a wave of potential that appears as a blur or astral cloud-like substance. This ability of the mind to organize matter operates in the same manner or according to the same principle as the etheric body that provides the energetic blueprint for regenerating and multiplying one cell to create a unified field of information as a whole body comprised of billions of cells that continues to function through time and space as if it’s “one”.

Matter, which can be thought of as “frozen light” or the “crystallization of light”, exists as an electrical organism (mechanism) that’s operated through electrical impulses as a photoelectric effect of one or more photons propagating through space as electromagnetic waves. Wave-particle duality is a property not only of light, but of matter as well, because of course matter is ultimately composed of photons in its primary essence. The entire material world is composed of crystallized light produced by electromagnetic fields as intelligent subtle energy also referred to as the “mind” and the individual consciousness of the mind called the “soul”.

While many people tend to think in terms of separating the spiritual from the material, in reality they’re the same thing at different stages and phases of “becoming” as electrified or charged plasma that organizes a etheric form that acts to systematically produce a material form through a steady process of solidification (coagulation) or generation. The four “states of matter” are described as electrified plasma that forms a gas-like substance, which becomes a liquid, which then becomes a solid object. This can also be illustrated through the element of water, which exists in different states as plasma or air, as humidity, a liquid and a solid material when frozen. All of which are different states of the same thing. These stages of forming the material world correspond to the four elements (fire, air, water, and earth) of esoteric sciences, which are organized, formed, and given life through the fifth element of the Aether or the mind of the soul.

        What science now calls “Entanglement Theory” basically states that whatever is “born together” (as in the cells of the body), or that become energetically entangled and vibrate in harmony as the same frequency and nature (mind and soul of the body), operates as a single unit, and continues to operate as one even when separated by great distances. They exist in a fundamental state of polarity as complementary opposites, which means they spin in opposite directions to each other, and whatever property is being measured (observed and fixated by the mind) in one, the other one instantaneously reflects the same property. As the “state” of one particle or cell changes, the state of all entangled parts change in a unified movement because they exist as being a part of the same field, which exists everywhere throughout the space-time continuum simultaneously. They exist as what appears to be individual particles and as an inherent part of the same field of information. What’s of the “same nature” influences each other, no matter where they’re located in the unified field, through their shared “state of mind” and emotions.

This has huge implications not only in terms of our own minds ability to organize and transform our physical body as a correspondence to it, but also explains the mystery of being able to “produce and effect” or heal somebody at a distance with a small amount of their blood or locket of hair, or anything that contains their DNA. By “acting to transform the chemical make-up of their DNA” in the sample provided, it simultaneously produces the same effect in every cell of the body, no matter how far away. Likewise, by tuning into the person by speaking their name several times while concentrating (words connect us to the reality inherent in the words) on them, we can intuitively connect with them mentally and influence them through our state of mind, altering their state and the thought-processes and emotions produced by that state, altering their DNA as a result. This same effect is produced through direct communication by what we say to someone that causes them to imagine the reality of our words as a possibility for experience, and forming a belief out of them as a result. This also gives us insight as to how we are literally transformed (to some degree) through sexual intercourse where we “acquire” some of the other persons DNA, and they ours, and become somewhat subject to their thoughts, emotional states, and actions as taking on the same “morality” and aligning ourselves with the same type of destiny. We literally become one with whomever we have sexual intercourse with.

The Astral Plane of Emotion

Emotion is the “language” of the material plane that also governs instinct and intuition. It’s the dominant property of the lower regions of the astral plane of formation, and the language of the subconscious mind, which is the same level and aspect of the mind we share with the natural world and the plant and animal kingdoms. It’s the energy that’s transmitted within the material plane as notions, urges, and mental impressions that spontaneously alters our state producing automatic behaviors that are systematically employed without direct awareness. In humans, who are bestowed with higher creative capacities of the mind, emotions go a step further in how they affect us by acting to produce whole imaginary realities as illusions that we use in place of the actual, objective reality, that’s produced by the memories associated with the emotion that provides a template for automatic behaviors. All behavior in the ultimate sense is emotionally driven or a product of will, which can override emotion and direct the subconscious with new behaviors based on reason, realization, and rational calculated thinking.

Emotions, which originate in the electromagnetic plane, come in a variety of ways as either a natural response to our own thoughts, as a transmission and thought-form from another being outwardly expressing emotions, as an instinctual response to a feeling or idea, or as a form of association to a memory that was created while in the same emotional state. As we form an emotional response to something we automatically reference a memory of a similar nature that was created while in that same emotional state that provides us with a form of template for creating an imaginary reality as an internal representation that we use in place of the actual or present reality making it out to be the same as the past experience.

This imaginary reality based on memory of some kind provides the template as a story-line or theme that we use for creating an illusion that provides us with an instant interpretation as the means of creating more of the same type of idea, causing us to act in the same way we did in the past situation of a similar nature. In this way, through natural emotional reactions, we engage in a natural form of instinct as intuition that uses memory in place of the intellect and reasoning to create more of the same type of ideas, experiences, and behaviors over and over based on past experiences. Through our emotional states and the automatic behaviors they produce, we continue to create the present to be like the past through an unconscious state that doesn’t require thought or use of choice and free will.

The Subconscious Mind

The subconscious mind operates without direct awareness to produce realities out of memories, and reactive behaviors that are automatic and emotionally driven. The subconscious is the same aspect of the mind we share with all of nature and is what literally produces the substratum of material reality as the collective unconscious or group mind, and automatic functions of the body and behaviors that are involuntary in nature and don’t require a thought process or decision of any kind. It’s the aspect of the mind that forms our “body consciousness”, which operates and informs the DNA of our body by influencing it through emotional states produced by thoughts as actual or imagined realities. The subconscious is the “active mind” and is continuously active from the moment of conception and birth till our last breath and moment of physical death. While our self-conscious mind is only awake and active part of the time, our subconscious is continuously active and never sleeps, yet it operates for the most part without our direct awareness.

The Relationship between Thought and Emotion

Thought and emotion, which can also be seen as masculine and feminine aspects of the same thing, operate as “one” and one serves to automatically produce and influence the other. When descending as a downward movement from the higher, causal plane, we form a thought process in our mind as an idea that naturally stimulates an emotional state in response to it. The emotion married to the thought acts as the “physical equivalent” to the thought and systematically adjusts the chemistry of the body to match the reality produced by the thought. As we think we’re simultaneously regulating the chemistry of the body to produce the physical reality of our thoughts. The subconscious, which is experiential in nature and works through the imagination, doesn’t know the difference between a memory of an actual event or an imaginary one. This is because they’re both produced by the faculty of the imagination, and memories, once created, are replayed over and over through the imagination as a way of keeping the past alive in the present and using the same type of information, much like a feedback loop, to keep re-informing the body and our outer reality with the same type of information, producing a “consistent and congruent” version of our self and our experience of ourselves in our outer reality.

DNA as the Creative Intelligence of the Body and Outer Reality

The DNA of our body operates according to the same principles of both our self-conscious and subconscious mind, and is regulated primarily through our emotional states and imaginary thoughts. We are literally always creating our own physical constitution and character by how we inform our DNA, and organizing our outer reality through the electromagnetic field emanated by our DNA that interacts energetically with the DNA in every other living entity. The entire material world is formed by the information contained in DNA. As we think and form an emotional response to our own thoughts we literally act to “structure the reality” of our thoughts through the “meaning” they have. Thought and emotion form meaning as the basis for creating our experiences. Out of meaning comes the story we tell ourselves as a form of theme that provides us with a consistent version of reality that provides the basis for how we experience things.

DNA works to construct material form out of memory in much the same way that the subconscious mind, soul, and the archetypal realm of higher consciousness as “universal memory” does, all of which play off of each other and are used as the means for creating personal experiences that are formed out of the meaning and significance of something. We form personal memories out of the experiences we had of the events of our life that had a strong emotional impact. Events with little or no emotional impact are never really remembered in any detail, but merely as vague generalizations or forgotten all together. Events that had strong emotions associated with them, determine how we form the memory as the experience of it, which was shaped by the nature of the emotion we were experiencing at the time. The event itself merely sets the stage for enacting a theme of sorts that shapes how we experience it by the type of story we tell ourselves about it. The emotion the event invoked in us, determines the nature of how we created our experience of it through the “telling”. The same basic event and group of elements can be used to tell a story as a serious drama, adventure, comedy, or tragedy based on the emotion engendered and the type of reality that’s naturally inherent in the emotion. Emotions have very distinct types of experiences and fantasies inherent in them that form how we experience life and create ourselves (program our subconscious and DNA) by way of our experiences.

Our thoughts and emotions, which form the internal representations born in our imagination that we use to give things meaning, also act to inform and program our DNA, which, like the subconscious mind, acts as a receiver for information that it translates to produce instructions for organizing the material world. These emotional thoughts are produced by the union of the self-conscious and subconscious based on current life experiences and memories, and from the higher mind of archetypal memory that forms “original thought” that acts to transform and evolve our current creation by recomposing it through the integration of new and diverse information. The common denominator between reality as a neutral set of events that we use as the means of creating our experiences out of and the subconscious mind and DNA, as memory, (of the Soul, subconscious, DNA, and archetypes) is semantics. How we organize the cells of our body and the appearance of the outer world, which is always a correspondence to the inner world, is based on the meaning we give things as our perception of them that form our “life story”. It’s through meaning that we self-create and create our experience of our outer reality.

       DNA acts as the link and medium between the mind and material reality and is programmed or informed in an evolutionary manner through our very thoughts and emotions and the imaginary realities we create out of them. It’s through the imagination that we program the subconscious and DNA as a set of instructions, which produce the equivalent as an experience of reality. Not necessarily by changing reality itself, but rather by changing how reality appears to us based on how we interpret it to give it meaning. As we think, feel, emote, and act, we’re producing a form of etheric template that provides the blueprint as an electromagnetic field of information for organizing how the material world “appears” to us. We self-create by way of our own thoughts and emotions in the most basic and rudimentary sense of the idea.

Both the subconscious and DNA, which is the conscious intelligence that organizes and structures material form, are “experiential” in nature, and operate out of memory as imagined experiences produced by a combination of thought, feeling sensations that make it real and elicit an emotion, altering the chemistry of the body to match the state of mind. These all work together in a synchronistic and congruent manner to produce an imaginary reality that has meaning as a way of experiencing it through the story we tell ourselves about it that creates a form of self-perpetuating “feedback loop”. Through the nature of our thoughts we’re always in the process of telling ourselves a story about everything that has a consistent meaning that we use as the means of literally creating ourselves and our experience of reality. If we change the nature of our story, we change ourselves and our world accordingly.

As we think, feel, and imagine the reality of our thoughts, we systematically create ourselves (program our subconscious and DNA) and our outer world as congruent correspondences to our inner imagining. We are literally the ones always creating ourselves by way of how we’re using all levels of our mind in unison to create experiences in our imagination that become the instructions as a projection and transmission for creating our reality. As we program our subconscious and DNA, the electromagnetic field of information that they produce acts to inform the subconscious and DNA of everything else in the outer, natural world of which they are an inherent part of, and through electrical impulses as resonance, acts to reconfigure it by turning some information off while turning other information on, composing it into a new variable as a personal creation. Our mind as a mental paradigm, vibratory frequency and dynamic pattern literally acts to influence, recompose and transform of field of potential into one possibility that matches our idea about it. Every person creates a unique version of reality through their perception of it.

The Law of Correspondences

All parallel planes that make up the four dimensional material world and the higher spiritual world of pure energy as unformed consciousness, exist in a natural relationship to each other as complementary opposites that are polar in nature. The activity that takes place on one plane propagates through all related planes as a series of correspondences or chain of association. The same vibration as a form of note or chord that is part of a whole octave resonates with that same chord on all higher and lower octaves. As they resonate, the passive aspect of one acts to draw in and absorb the active aspect of the same idea from a parallel plane, which influences it, altering its vibration and modifying the existing pattern to a new possibility for the same idea as a natural means of transformation that gradually evolves the form to a new kind or level. As we draw in energy as vibratory information from the space around us and synthesize it by becoming one with it in mind, we begin vibrating in harmony with it and it modifies our thought processes through the realization it brings, changing how we see ourselves and our world.

The most natural and immediate way we have of creating ourselves and developing our character that simultaneously modifies and transforms our physical body and outer reality, is by learning how to keep our body in a relaxed state while stilling our mind of random habitual thoughts, and focusing our attention on the idea of what we want to create. It’s only through deep states of concentration on an idea as an imagined experience of reality, that’s defined and developed with detail over an extended period of time that serves to invoke an equivalent emotion, that’s then thought about or “remembered” in a consistent fashion, that we create a “virtual memory” as an intentional form of “self-programming”. By controlling and directing our thoughts and what we imagine as possible scenarios, or what memories we dwell in and think about in a repetitive manner, we can regulate our emotional state and “act on ourselves” to reprogram ourselves with a corresponding reality. All ideas exist in a primary state of infinite potential for that idea as a kind of theme. The theme employed acts to produce the mental correspondence as our identity and character, the bodily correspondence as our physical health and constitution, and the outer correspondence as our perception of reality. All of which act together to form the story we tell by living it as the means for developing and evolving our soul, mind, physical constitution, and perception of reality through the same memory as a fundamental form of programming.

How the Mind Creates Reality – The Nature of Perception and Experience

There has been so much confusion with the explosion of quantum physics and Mind Sciences as to the true nature of what we call “reality”.  One of the most fundamental problems we have is people tend to think of the material world of matter and form as a fixed, objective, and stationary construct where every person (mind) is somehow perceiving and experiencing the “same thing”. Because of this, we don’t realize the true power of our mind to shape reality, or the true nature of the relationship between the mind and matter. Naturally, the entire material world is only “perceivable” through or because of the mind, and the mind as a field of information is what “operates” both the brain and the body, which is a mechanism for processing sensory information to produce what we experience as coherent and consistent version of reality.

When we say that the “mind creates its own reality”, we’re usually not referring to the idea that it literally manifests the physical world that appears to be outside of us as well as in us, although there’s certainly an argument for this idea also, but what it means in the general sense is that the mind “interacts” with matter energetically, and through resonance and sympathetic induction, alters it’s outward appearance and how it “organizes” in terms of attributes, qualities, and characteristics, producing a variation that still indigenous to the same overall theme as a new version or possibility. All vibration acts to form a pattern as the electromagnetic field that organizes matter into a distinct form that’s then animated with a form of personality where it outwardly displays distinct qualities and characteristics. The pattern inherent in a frequency is more of a “theme” or general “range of expression” rather than a distinct and fixed shape that exists more as a specific vibration within that frequency.

As we vibrate to a certain frequency, we act to connect with that same frequency in everything else through “sympathetic induction”. This is where the subtle energy that’s vibrating and shaping one form, literally “enters into” another form vibrating at the same frequency or within near proximity (where it can still be drawn in), and “affects it” by “altering its state”. The two aspects of the same frequency then begin vibrating in harmony, forming into the same “type of pattern” as a cohesive and coherent idea. All of what we call a frequency, which is a range of vibration as a kind of scale that moves between extremes of the same overall idea or theme, exists within other frequencies that together make up what we think of as the natural world as an ecosystem. All of what we call “material form” is actually composed of mostly empty space as “natural forces” that charge particles and organize them into patterns as a “living system”. Energy from all around readily move into and through the empty space holding matter together, influencing it in a way that alters how it organizes the system in terms of what’s made active and inactive, and how it changes in its “appearance” while still maintaining the same overall thematic or archetypal shape. So we don’t necessarily change the outer shape of things, but rather which attributes and qualities are active, called forth expressing, and which ones become latent and recede, and how it behaves and expresses in relationship to us as a result.

        In the Biblical story of the creation of the natural world, called the “original creation”, the material world was formed from the “spoken word”, but left unfinished. Humans, who are gifted with higher capacities of the mind for creating, were left with the task of “finishing it” by creating it in a unique and individual fashion. While the material world and the lower mind of our animal body appears to exist in what we could call an objective, stationary and neutral state, where everybody is seeing the same “basic thing”, it actually exists as a wave or “field of information” that has an infinite amount of potential that’s all thematic in nature as archetypes of various sorts, where every single mind that enters into relationship with it, filters out certain aspects, while selecting and enhancing others, forming it into a new and unique variation. While a tree exists as the same type of tree to everyone who views it, how they “experience” that tree, will be different every time. No two people experience the same thing in the same way. It’s always different based on how their mind forms it by resonating with it.

All energy as vibration contains an archetypal pattern as a field of information that forms an archetypal theme that has an infinite amount of possibilities for creating based on how the information is sorted, recomposed into new formula’s that produce new variations of the same thing. All material form exists as both a particle and a wave. Every object is accompanied by a subtle field of energy as the consciousness that organizes it through a “self-organizing mechanism” that “in-forms” it, holds it together as an operating system, and animates it with life. It’s the “empty space” that organizes the particles into a working system of some sort. These natural forces as electromagnetic fields have no real physical properties, and so the “mind” as individual consciousness moves freely into the mind and subtle energy of everything else, influencing it to a new vibration that alters how it appears to that mind. We are always creating (or recreating) everything to be in our image and of our likeness.

So we’re not necessarily literally creating our own reality, but rather transforming the existing reality that we all share as a part of this dimension, into a new and unique variation through our very perception of it. Our mind vibrates to a certain frequency that has a thematic pattern inherent in it that forms the energetic structure of our mind as a mental paradigm. This paradigm acts as a holographic model that resonates with everything around it, shape-shifting it to be of a congruent nature as a way of creating a consistent experience of reality in an ongoing fashion. We can only perceive, conceive of, or comprehend in our outer world what matches our inner world as the thematic structure of our mind. If it doesn’t match it or it exists outside of our paradigm (frequency), then we literally “can’t see it”. We can look straight at it and not comprehend it. We can only comprehend and therefore experience what we can blend with energetically, become one with in kind, and influence to be of the same idea as we are. All reality in this sense is a matter of perception.

       As we “perceive something”, meaning we form an experience of it, comes by way of our ability to influence it into a new variation of itself that’s a correspondence to our model of the world. So as we’re perceiving and thereby experiencing the outer world, we’re constantly in the process of reforming it to be like us, of the same thematic structure as we are. Perception operates according to the same principles that govern DNA and all physical manifestation. You have a field of information as the potential for producing a form, and based on what’s “turn on” and made active, and what’s “turned off” and made latent, determines the nature of the form. As we resonate with something, our field of information as our mind vibrating at a specific frequency with a thematic pattern, enters into the energy field of the form we’re interacting with, forming an “interference pattern” out of “shared components and qualities”, where what’s of a like nature is amplified and embellished, and what’s not is canceled out and diminished, and we “alter the pattern” that’s producing the form changing how it appears outwardly. It literally changes appearance or shape-shifts by conforming to our mental paradigm and ideas about it. While the overall thematic form remains the same, the active components as attributes and qualities are reformulated to where what’s actively expressing changes not only how it looks, but also how it behaves. As we reformulate the basic nature of something through our energetic interaction, we change how it’s being and what it’s doing.  This is very easy to see and understand by how we can “change” how people see themselves and behave through how we treat them and how they treat us.

All perception is formed through what we call a “filtering system”, usually comprised of values, beliefs, preferences, tendencies, memories, temperament, and so on, that together form a dynamic model that acts to reorganize any situation or reality by abstracting some parts while eliminating others. We’re not only always working on a limited amount of information gathered through a form of natural selection, but we then organize that small amount of information into the idea that we want it to be, believe it is, or expect it to be. What we believe to be true forms our experiences. What we value in a situation forms our process of selection. We reshape anything in whatever way we need to in order to form the interpretation we want it to have. How we interpret things to give them meaning, shapes how we experience them by the story we form in our mind about them. As we walk into any situation, we are programmed with a natural selection process for what we notice and abstract and we don’t and ignore.

This is very easy to see and understand when we simply realize that five people who are a part of the same event or reality will “experience” that event in a unique and different way from all the others, often telling such diverse stories about it that you can’t even tell it was the same event. Ask them about it and you’ll get five completely different accounts about what happened, what it meant, what resulted from it, what went on, what others were doing, what was important about it, what they took away from it, and so on. So even though we all share a common reality, how we experience that reality is very unique and diverse for each one of us. No two people experience the same thing in the same way. No two people look at the same idea the same way, we all have a unique take on it based on how we’re filtering it through our mental paradigm as our vibratory frequency to reorganize the general information involved and available to everyone into a unique pattern.

       Quantum physics has demonstrated that matter is influenced by the mind of the person interacting with it. That whatever the intention is for an experiment, whatever it’s meant to prove or disapprove, influences and determines how matter “shows up and behaves”. The consciousness of the individual enters into matter, influencing it with its thoughts about it, and stimulates it into new forms with new properties and behaviors. The individual viewing an event, and the event itself as it appears to the viewer, are a part of the “same thing”. The mind literally produces the results it wants to or has an intention and expectation for. This is why several different quantum physicists (or scientists of any kind) all conducting similar experiments will come to different conclusions. Where the only way to really know if something is real or not, is if two or more people “appear to be seeing” the same thing. And even when they do appear to be seeing the same thing, it’ll vary to some degree based on the paradigm of each individual which is what’s forming their perception, interpretation and experience of it.

Understanding the true relationship between mind and matter allows us to understand the true nature of Alchemy where we realize that the only way to change how the outer world appears to us, is by changing ourselves. If it still appears the same, it’s because nothing has actually changed in terms of our paradigm or mental and emotional state. Likewise, we can’t really change others in the direct sense of the idea, but by changing ourselves, we change how they appear to us and how they affect us. It’s only by changing our thoughts that we change our reality as a correspondence. The way to tell when you’re truly growing, developing new aspects of yourself, and transforming by altering your vibration, is due to the fact that you start looking at things differently, seeing something different in the same thing, and the way the outer world and others appear to you starts changing accordingly. As long as we hold the same frequency based on the same beliefs, values, preferences, memories, and thematic life story, the outer world appears stagnate and methodical. Nothing changes. By changing our mind, we change ourselves and how we perceive (create) others and our life. So in this way, we are definitely the one producing our perception and experience of reality. All of life as we are capable of knowing it is a personal creation of a common theme.

Developing Clairvoyance – “Seeing the Spiritual World”

I often get asked if clairvoyance or intuition are something we can learn and develop in ourselves, or are we just born with the ability as a gift? And I usually reply, it’s both, it’s a natural faculty we’re all born with, that is usually chalked up to a “vivid imagination” and eventually “taught out of us”, or we suppress it through a form of ridicule of some kind. What we refer to as the “spiritual” world or plane of existence is primarily invisible to the material senses, and is filled with beings and forms as invisible natural forces of some kind. These forms differ in many ways, but the two main ones are whether they’re caused by an object or a being. Our “world of thought and imagination” is the part of us that lives in and is a coherent part of the spiritual world. All thought is invisible in nature and can’t be seen or felt by anyone outside of us; yet it exists as real for us internally and is what makes up our experience of reality.

Astral Plane and the World of Formation

Because our mind, which is an invisible field of information and natural forces also, is an inherent part of the spiritual realm, our own feelings and thoughts can influence these forms and cause them to morph and fluctuate. This plane of form is traditionally called the astral plane in esoteric sciences, the World of Formation in Kabbalistic Philosophy, and has a broad range as higher (barely formed and still fluctuating) and lower (well-formed and stationary) regions within it as a range of expression that moves an idea from pure essence (unformed) as a universal archetype to a well-formed idea as a personalization of that idea. Forms that characteristically change with our every thought or feeling are produced by the mineral elements and are human made objects. Those formed by the plant element change less easily in response to our thoughts and feelings, and animals, which have a personality of their own, even less so.

Though the astral-etheric world is invisible, it acts to impress the mind (which is of the same plane) with distinct mental impressions that form subtle realities in the imagination. The imagination is the faculty of the mind that receives knowledge of the spirit through the astral plane of form. These mental impressions while never (hardly ever) solid or opaque, like the forms of the physical, are still quite distinct as a “feeling about something” that forms a chain of association as the qualities that permeate it and the forms that express those qualities in symbolic terms of the physical plane actually being the symbolic representation of concentrated energy from the spiritual plane.

These astral forms remain in a constant state of evolutionary flow as transformation taking place based on energetic influences from all levels of consciousness surrounding and interacting with it, most of which exists on the same plane as human thoughts, feelings, and emotions. These forms have a luster and iridescent quality that’s consistently shifting and fluctuating through sympathetic resonance and assimilation of similar frequencies in near proximity of it. They shift and reform slightly based on how they’re being influenced or directly interacted with, which is mostly being done unconsciously through our own thoughts and feelings in response to them.

These forms are full of life and movement and their mobility is largely due to the influence of our own thoughts and feelings, and to other causes beyond our control. Some of these forms are independent of the human mind and exist outside of our ability to influence them, and as a result, they act instead to influence us. Others are always interacting with us in feelings and thoughts that form “in us” as a natural response to the feeling sensations we’re always receiving and the activity they induce at the subconscious level, and so we often have no direct awareness of the influence our thoughts are having on others and the world around us.

Archetypes and Thought-Forms

While all natural living and non-living objects have energy fields which are impressed with the shapes of the qualities it possesses that forms its characteristics as a form of organic patterning that are produced as a natural emanation, there are many “thought-forms” created by people’s emotions, instincts, passions, and so on. These man-made thought-forms are similar to archetypes as universal memory that fluently populates the astral plane and can be “tuned into” and absorbed by the individual mind where they appear in the mind’s eye much like a normal memory or inspired idea. Through meditative observation we can realize that while our thoughts and feelings bear an influence on these man-made thought-forms, it’s only slight, unless we’re directly interacting with them. Other forms have only a negligible effect, if any, depending on what causes them.

Sensing Energy

When we learn how to reverse our normal thinking in terms of the spiritual world being symbolic of the material, and instead realize that all material form exists as the symbolic forms of the spiritual-energetic realm, we can realize that many behavioral characteristics of people are seen as an animalistic quality in the spiritual essence of their presence. So when energy is “sensed” it takes on or is perceived as the natural qualities themselves as they would exist in the natural world. They appear as animal-like, or as bearing the sensations of evil, grotesque, demonic, scheming, envious, lashing out, bitter, sulking, scared, dominating and aggressive, or as angelic like, soft, patient, calm, centered, reserved, protective, flowing, loving, and so on. The quality of the energy takes on whatever physical characteristics correspond to it. While animals always bear the energy of their species as a form of instinct, and remain somewhat consistent, humans possess many different qualities that make up their persona, and their energy is sensed as analogous forms to the natural world, and because of this, may completely contradict their physical appearance.

Emotions, which can be thought of as natural forces or entities that have a singular nature and express only as the quality of that emotion, which produces a whole living process as a chain of association that spawns whatever we focus on, what memory we access, what we think about, how we feel, and what type of experience we act to create by way of it that produces a reality for us on the inner planes. This imagined reality creates a “thought-form” on the astral-etheric plane made up of light essence, which is what we shape in our imagination as a self-produced expression of that energy as an actual reality. The energy itself exists in its universal form as containing endless potential for expression, that when drawn into a person, undergoes a whole series of modification that adapt it to the individual, and based on how it enters into relationship with the personal reality, forms into one potential and expresses through us by forming a corresponding reality.

Example – anger, while expressed differently by each individual who experiences it, is still interpreted as anger. It comes across as anger and acts to systematically activate or trigger anger in everyone around them, all of which will express in a somewhat unique way while maintaining the basic characteristics assigned to anger, such as outbursts, yelling, criticizing, belittling, intimidating, attacking, aggression, hostility, or in other cases, frustration, overwhelm, severe anxiety, crying, or a temper tantrum of sorts. While everyone expresses anger in a way that’s unique to them, the basic feeling of anger as producing distinct characteristics and behaviors remains constant as a kind of theme. When energy is being sense around a person, regardless of what their physical appearance, is experienced as these same qualities. A perfectly calm and sullen person can be raging inside with anger, which is not only felt by the clairvoyant, but “seen” as distinct mental impressions that are surrounding them. This is a form of tuning into the inner (spiritually outer) thought-life of the individual and “reading their thoughts” as impressions that are not necessarily unique to the individual as a personal creation, but rather the universal and neutral expression of the quality itself as a possible variation.

Attributes, Qualities, and Characteristics

The spiritual world is not an ethereal, hazy or illusory replication of the physical world, but reveals itself in forms that are quite different. Qualities that permeate a physical form are seen as the images associated to those qualities, and the attributes of the forms “match” the quality of consciousness as behaviors or processes being expressed through or by a physical body or entity. This is the basis for why the spiritual realm is “seen” or portrayed as “animal powers”, is because certain qualities that produce specific behaviors in what we could think of as the instinctual field of the collective unconscious that governs all of life on the planet earth, and expresses through different species of animals as the form associated with those behaviors as classifications of the consciousness that governs and produces them.

So, for example, another human who embodies and demonstrates certain behaviors are “sensed” as their animal quality. An aggressive or deceptive  person might be seen as having lion or panther-like qualities; someone who constantly complains might be seen as a dog barking or whining; a docile and meek person like a lamb or sheep. Likewise, negative emotions being embodied and expressed are seen as attributes of that emotion; anger is perceived as jagged, sharp, chaotic, loud and aggressive energy that expands and clashes or shocks; whereas sadness is sensed as dull, vague, dark, tired energy that pulls within and almost disappears; loving emotions are very warm, buzzy and sensuous, gratifying and intoxicating, relaxing, and attract you to them. When these feelings are experienced, mental impressions often rise up as thoughts of a corresponding nature, and we have a kind of translucent vision as transparent imagery, or energetic composite that forms in our imagination that’s very different in the normal sense from the actual outer “appearance” of the person expressing the energy as emotional states.

Time, Eternity, and Evolution

The “forms” of the spiritual realm, which are really personal translations of feelings in their corresponding forms, reflects the “qualities of consciousness” being projected and acted out through the physical form, and often doesn’t resemble the flesh body at all. Though the flesh body does begin to take on characteristics similar to the emotions habitually expressed, this takes time and is subject to evolution on the physical plane, which is a slow and gradual process, whereas on the spiritual plane evolution is a constant movement that transforms instantly, and moves in and out of energy that stimulates a variety of images as a flux and flow that reforms based on the qualities it absorbs from the environment, which when assimilated through a form of equilibrium as coherence, reshapes instantly as the immediate expression of the new vibration. Time doesn’t exist as a linear process within the spiritual realm, which has no sense of past or future, but remains eternally in the present, and like a growth process of latent energies coming from the inner, invisible realm to the outer (somewhat) visible realm, is an unfolding process of becoming, rather than a linear process of modifications to an original form, which only takes place through habitual tendencies developed over extended periods of time. Change in the physical world is gradual and process oriented, whereas in the spiritual it’s instantaneous and synchronistic.

In the physical realm, even the images produced by the individual mind are based on memory of some form, which while that memory may play out as vivid in our mind, usually differs significantly from the actual event that produced it. We form our own interpretation of the event as a re-presentation, where each time its recalled, it’s modified by how we use it to form a similar interpretation of our current situation to make it “mean” the same thing. Through constant recall and new applications we evolve and transform the memory throughout our life, retelling it slightly different each time, until eventually, it doesn’t even resemble the actual event or original memory. Spiritual experience is much like memory, except it doesn’t refer to the past imagined experience, but rather to the present soul and spiritual aspects of our environment and the events taking place in the moment. These “soul-like” memories, similar to what are commonly called archetypes as a form of universal memory or holograms, don’t have anything to do with the personal conditioned memories of the body, but of the memory as a classification of standardized forms and qualities that animate them that are of the larger, universal soul-mind, which we’re always tuning into and sensing within our present situation, that serve to stimulate and call forth our personal memories as a correlation.

The Cosmic Mirror of the Imagination

When we refrain from the need to interpret experiences, and simply observe them with a neutral and unbiased mind, they form the same type of mental impressions as personal memory and scenarios or moving images that form mental impressions in the imagination, that lack meaning (in the personal sense), while existing purely by reasons that exist independent of us. The spiritual realm is perceived in much the same way as a form of invisible reality viewed in the mind, though not actually seen, that’s alive within the present situation, rather than being resurrected from the past and reused to create the present as an illusion. The mental impressions formed in the mind in response to feelings and the sensations they give rise to, is how we “perceive” (see) the spiritual within the physical. Not as a mirror image that duplicates it, but as an image that resembles the reflection seen on glass or a dark shiny surface. Yet the images themselves appear nothing like the physical body they inhabit and act to animate through thought processes that produce behaviors as their equivalent. The idea of a mirror image is referring more to the nature and quality of the mental impressions themselves, rather than the actual image, which in spiritual terms is quite different.

Feelings, State, and the Nature of Vibration

Though in the reverse sense, a feeling we get in the spiritual sense forms a very distinct mental image as a reality that expresses in the physical as the same form associated to the feeling. In reality, the physical is the expression as “form” of the spiritual; the spiritual is not symbolic of the physical. We have to reverse our way of thinking. The spiritual is the “feeling state” (vibration) that acts to produce and give rise to a correlating physical reality as animated imagery that forms composite images, scenarios, or events that are the processes inherent in the feeling as spiritual law. The living patterns of vibration create processes as structure and function. They shape astral light (starlight) into forms with distinct behaviors that express the principles governing them. These astral shapes are formed as variations of the same idea (archetype) based on the adaptation they undergo through the relationship they form with all other factors involved in the situation or circumstances that act to modify it to some degree as a kind of reformulation of the same fundamental properties, changing what’s emphasized and enhanced, yet, forming out of the same fundamental properties as a formulae or dynamic patterning.

Thematic Patterns and Symbolic Correspondences

When we move from thinking that the physical world is the basis that gives rise to the spiritual, which seems symbolic in comparison, and realize fully instead that it’s the spiritual as vibration that exists in its potential state as a “thematic pattern” that gives rise to the physical as a symbolic correspondence, then we can begin to understand the spiritual world through feelings that when held in a calm and open mind form into natural imagery that’s in a constant state of movement as fluctuating qualities that transform through a state of “becoming” while maintaining the same basic form as an archetypal idea. For example, if we hold the archetypal idea of a lamp in our mind, and we’re simply present with that idea, we may form impressions of all sorts of different types of lamps, yet they’re all still a “lamp”, and they all represent the same type of idea.  As we hold an idea in our mind, a form of free-association as a chain of associated ideas naturally unfolds in our imagination as correlating and corresponding ideas of the same nature.

An archetype can be thought of as a kind of universal (non-personal) idea as a pattern, living template or prototype that forms a mental impression as a specific “type of form” in the imagination of the individual, which uses it just like a personal memory to create experiences in their life that are of the same idea, modified by how its embodied and applied, not only through the consciousness of the individual, but to their exact set of circumstances and conditions. We “conceive of” an idea whole and intact as a form of insight, that we then personalize by how we think about it, what emotions we associate to it, what scenarios we apply it to in order to create it, and we reform it into a personalize version as a result. The idea conceived as an insight or inspiration is “pictured in the mind” in much the same way as a memory is. It appears like a reflection on glass as a see-through or translucent image. The imagery is the translation as an interpretation from pure feeling to a full-fledged physical reality as a mental construct or internal representation. We modify the original idea by how we apply it to our current life situation that presents it to us in a new way as a modified format or configuration. The basic idea being used as a theme for creating is modified through the process of adaptation which reforms it.

The feeling that we get that’s present in any moment as an emanation of the energies involved, when we create an open space in our mind for the feeling to take hold within us and rise up in our mind as a living scenario or animated form within our imagination, we can see the nature of the energies as the forms their vibration creates, which are the expression of the “qualities of consciousness” birthing them as realities in the astral plane of the imagination. All vibration has patterns inherent in it along with a self-organizing mechanism that shapes essence into forms in the faculty of the imagination.

The imagination is the faculty of the mind that shapes astral light as programmed essence into forms as the expression of the vibratory frequency they’re programmed with. The vibration as movement organizes and structures light – the astral remnant of movement between two poles that form dimension – and a matrix of tension (electromagnetic field) that hold everything into fluctuating, shimmering, lustrous patterns. These patterns as shapes translate into living realities of the physical plane. The physical plane is produced, maintained, and governed by spiritual laws, which are the energetic intelligence as information that form and express as properties that naturally undergo certain types of processes and form natural behaviors based on the chemical properties of their form and the level of consciousness equated to it.

The Field of Potential and the Particle of Existence

So the spiritual world and the physical world are extreme aspects of the same plane comprised of multiple dimensions where pure consciousness as a wave-form containing billions of potential is drawn down through the planes and into physical reality as the expression of the information inherent in the wave-form, that collapses around “one” potential as a possibility that’s used to form a single, individual personalized reality. That reality then forms into a memory, which draws it back up the planes and returns it to its universal state as an archetype or pattern as an idea that’s represented by a basic form that can be used to create numerous more experiences through using the memory as a general idea or meaning that becomes a template for creating more experiences of the same nature, shaped by the meaning it has that evolves it through a series of modifications by how it’s adapted to fit a new set of circumstances or situation.

This memory (whether universal or personal – because one is used to create the other) when used repeatedly, creates a field of energy (consciousness) as an electromagnetic field that habituates it, making it a main theme for creating our life story by solidifying it as a thought-form, which continues to exist in the soul-astral plane of mass consciousness, where it becomes a form of substitute for an original thematic idea as an archetype, and can be tuned into, accessed, and received by other minds, who also use it to create in a similar fashion as a basic idea. In this way, archetypes are not only evolved constantly by how they’re applied and modified, but birth new archetypes through the same method as a form of genetic (information) modification.

The world of thought-forms as a form of collection or accumulation of archetypes evolved by humans through application and personalization, also refer to a mass consciousness or the “instinctual field” of the collective unconscious that produce natural behaviors that are conceived of unconsciously, is also referred to as the “Book of Life” where every action (as a new vibration) is “recorded” (impressed) in the Akashic Field. These terms are all referring to the same idea, which is also the basis for the modern scientific discovery of morphogenic fields and torsion fields that populates the field of human instinct and subtle energy as the ghost-like, invisible energy that emanates and produces distinct physical properties and behaviors.

Unconscious ideas are natural thought processes that form basic behaviors that are thematic in nature and natural to us. These are ideas that we didn’t acquire through awareness or intentionally but without direct awareness that exist as thought-forms imprinted within the soul-field or astral plane that we tune into and draw into us as natural and automatic thoughts that we begin expressing by creating experiences as imagined representations that we form our personal memories out of. These universal ideas that propagate our internal awareness become themes that govern our whole life because we continue to use memories of the past to create more of the same type of experiences in the present, usually without ever realizing that that’s what we’re doing.

The Chakra System Provides us with a Model for Using our Mind to Heal our Body

The Chakra system of the subtle body gives us a “model for creating” from a dual perspective as the movement of energy that’s both descending as spirit into matter, and matter ascending back into spirit. The creative process works from both angles because it’s the continuous flow of the same thing. When energy as vibration is descending from a higher plane, it comes in a unified form that divides and propagates as aspects of itself that form stages of development as a kind of growth process of an idea becoming a material form and reality. There are no “individual or independent” operations slated to each chakra as many believe, but rather a unified idea that steadily takes on physical properties and becomes something specific as an actual material reality. It’s the system through which an idea manifests as an equivalent physical correspondence or analogy.

What originates as an archetype or “ideal” is a form of prototype or general template as more of a theme, which holds the infinite potential of that idea as a wave-form (crown chakra has a thousand petals), enters into the individual mind and body system, where a form of natural selection takes place that accesses certain aspects of potential that correlate with it, and through a series of interference patterns as a process of adaptation based on the unique relationship that thematic idea forms with the individual character that’s acting as a vehicle for it to come into an actual form of expression, it’s modified, and the wave is “collapsed” around one possibility (limitation is imposed), which is brought into expression to produce the reality as its physical form.

The crown chakra is where the idea, which has already penetrated and been absorbed and inducted into the mind as the subtle energy field that surrounds and in-forms the body, as a “whole idea” that contains all aspects required for creating in a unified manner, enters the body.  It’s received into the 3rd-Eye of the sixth chakra as an inspired vision or imagined reality (similar to a memory) that has both optical and audio properties (6th chakra is represented as two petals). It comes as an imagined thought that’s accompanied by an inner voice. As the voice speaks a vision is formed as the meaning of the words spoken as a material reality. This inner voice (5th chakra) and imagined reality becomes the basis of what we call “thought”, which when beheld and dwelled in, forms feelings as sensations as it descends into the heart center. These feeling sensations of the imagined idea act as a form of vibratory programming for the subconscious mind of the body, and is what “connects us” to that same type of reality in everything around us in the material world of formation.

       The potential reality as an imagined, sensory and life-like reality produces emotion as the chemistry of the body as it descends into the solar plexus, which adjusts the biological body to the same “state” (vibratory quality) as the idea. The emotions are produced as a reaction to our visual thoughts, and unlike the feelings of the heart that are felt both inside and out as a connection to the material world outside of us, emotions are felt with intensity within the body as a strong stimulation that’s arousing and brings the body into an active state in response to the thought. This strong arousal and pronounced activity within the body takes place as the emotion enters the sexual-generative center of the second chakra, which is creative in nature, and what produces action as behaviors of some form as it enters the root chakra, and acts to bring the idea into expression as an experience by producing an effect as the reality of the thought. Once an idea is acted on, it steadily manifests as not only our inner reality, but also our outer reality. This is how ideas become rooted in reality as the personal creation of those who serve as the vehicle and conduit for actualizing them.

Because this process begins in the brain, the point in the body where ideas are received in full sensory terms, then broken down and distributed to the body itself for manifesting, the brain is attributed as being what “generates” the ideas as a primal form of consciousness. Yet all material form only acts as a passive receptor and instrument for consciousness, which operates it by informing, instructing, and animating it. Consciousness, like everything else that emerges from it, is dual in nature as both a passive and active component. Matter is the passive aspect of consciousness that acts as a form of “shell” or dead form for spirit to inhabit and give life to as a “living being” with a personality and subconscious mind. So the body is the means through which creation takes place as the active expression of consciousness (the Soul).

This same process as an infinite flow of energy that forms a kind of “feedback loop”, which allows the soul to witness its own creation, takes place through a form of reverse engineering. In the ascending flow of energy from the lower to the higher mind, a behavior or action of some kind arouses and stimulates us with a strong emotion, which then produces a feeling sensation as a form of reflection that activates a memory as a visual and verbal idea that provides an “automatic pattern” for creating as a reality. In this orientation and movement, the emotion and feeling produce the imagined thought, instead of the imagined thought producing the emotion and behavior. One originates as a conscious and willful movement, the other originates as an unconscious and automatic movement. Both are equally creative in nature and serve as correspondences to each other because our thoughts are what create the programs as memory of the subconscious mind. These programs habituate us to emotions that keep us in an aroused state, forming the basis for what affects us and causes an automatic, knee-jerk reaction as an emotional charge that makes us go unconscious and act in an automatic, thoughtless fashion.

       All of our reactions, ultimately, come as the result of how we’ve consistently programmed ourselves over a period of time with our own thoughts that formed our memories as a product of our conditioning. Our memories are formed by how we interpreted events through emotional perceptions as the reality we formed around them based on what we told ourselves about them that gave them the meaning they have. All things only mean what we make them mean by the story we tell ourselves about them. This process of feelings that are received from the environment that act to prompt an emotion as an active arousal, which in turn produces an automatic behavior, is how the instinctual realm of the plant and animal kingdom operate. When we bypass the intellectual capacity as the ability to reason, discriminate, and form our own interpretations as a function of the conscious mind, and live instead out of emotions that form illusions as memories that produce automatic behaviors in us, we live in much the same manner as an animal out of a primarily unconscious state.

The intelligent capacities of the Higher, creative Mind, represented by the three upper chakras (voice, vision, idea, and will), has the ability to work through, direct, and ultimately program the lower, subconscious mind of the body, represented by the four lower chakras, all of which are physical in nature, and more specifically the lower three, with the fourth  heart chakra being what bridges and acts as a pathway between the higher and lower planes, and the inner and outer of the material plane. Information is received from the higher plane of archetypal ideas as original thought from the crown and head, forming a vertical motion of up and down, whereas information from the “same plane” (material plane), is received through the heart, and forms a horizontal , as a back and forth, inner and outer movement. When we only live out of our feelings and emotions, stimulated from outer events, others, or in response to thinking as memories of some form, we bypass the intellectual capacity and live out of an unconscious, auto-pilot state of being controlled and determined in much the same way a puppet is operated by a series of strings, or in a remote control fashion, with others constantly being in control of the remote.

        The model laid out as a creative process by the chakra system as a hierarchical structure, provides us with the key and method for employing to work in a conscious and deliberate manner with our own subconscious mind and body to alter and transform our physical body and reality. The subconscious mind doesn’t have the ability to generate and produce reality as an “original creation”, but relies instead on memory which it uses as the basis for creating more realities of the same nature and kind. A memory acts as a preformed pattern or theme that’s used as a template to produce fractal patterns of the same nature as a replication or consistent type of story that produces the same type of experiences over and over, varied only by the uniqueness of the circumstances, situations, and relationships being used to create them. It simply plays out the same ideas over and over in a habitual manner, and produces and maintains the condition of the body as its equivalent and of the same nature and condition.

Whatever story we tell ourselves about our self and life, we become in form. Our mental paradigm is what produces all of our perceptions, which is an interpretation that we use to create our experiences that then determines how we behave, and simply acts in all situations to generate more of it self. It’s only modified from its habitual tendencies through the introduction of an original idea, that’s delivered in its original state as an imagined reality and inner voice, that “gives it” a pre-made idea as a virtual memory that it can use in place of an actual memory to produce the reality of the idea by “becoming it” in body and actions.

In this same fashion, the subconscious of the body, often referred to as the heart, can be given direction on what and how to manifest based on visualization of the process desired as a reality and by talking to it, explaining the process and how it works, and how it’s going to benefit from it. A sense of pleasure and positive emotion needs to be connected to the idea as what the reality will naturally produce. Thought as an idea (replicates a memory) must be translated into the feeling and emotion that’s the equivalent of the idea because it’s what actually produces the behavior or motivation (arousal) of the subconscious. Emotion is the motivating force as the chemistry of the body that forms all of its biological processes. Emotion comes as the stimulation of the Endocrine glands – the master of which is the Pineal and Pituitary body that act together to regulate all others as a unified operation – that produce hormones as messengers that alter the “state of the body” and activate certain processes by turning some aspects on while turning others off, in much the same way DNA operates. It’s only through coherence of the brain and heart (conscious and subconscious) as an idea and its emotional equivalent that manifestation and transformation naturally takes place.

       A thought that’s not properly translated through a sensory reality that produces the emotion of the idea, doesn’t manifest because it doesn’t work to alter and regulate the chemistry of the body to produce the actions necessary. It’s only an idea imagined as a full sensory reality that’s “felt as being real”, that provides a process or operation for transformation as a form of instructions or direction that invoke an emotional response as altering and producing the physical equivalent as the production and distribution of hormones that transforms how the body regenerates itself. It produces the chemical messengers as the information and instructions necessary to alter DNA sequences and neuro-pathways that change how the body regenerates and performs.

While we tend think that what we call “reality” is something that exists separate and independent of us, the fact is reality results from our perception of it. How reality “appears to us”, what we see and comprehend and what we don’t see or fail to recognize all together, is based on our ability to perceive and conceive of it. While we also tend to believe that perception is a product of our brain or heart, in fact, we perceive with our whole being, with both our mind and full body as a unified state and cohesive system. Just as we think with our whole body, in which every organ of our body produces neurotransmitters, and performs different aspects of thinking and perceiving, we also perceive the outer world through the lens of the inner world. Whatever ideas we “program” ourselves (subconscious and self-conscious) with, shape our paradigm, which produces an equivalent and corresponding outer reality as its expression and personal creation. Every individual perceives the same objective reality in a unique, different, and individual way. It’s only by changing our mind and body through the introduction and development of new and original ideas that we reprogram our subconscious to be able to perceive those ideas as a natural part of our outer reality. By changing ourselves, our whole world changes accordingly.

Mastering your Will to Create and Transform

Many people don’t fully understand what we mean when we use the term “will”, and as a result they don’t know how to use it in a deliberate and powerful way to create. Will is always associated to choice, because anytime we’re actually using our will , it’s to move out of conditioning and automatic, habitual tendencies that we do naturally, and create in a new and more individual way instead. When we’re trained to belief systems and certain mind-sets as “group consciousness” of some form, we’re actually lending our will to others and allowing them to shape and determine us as a result. Our will isn’t our ability to “resist” things or not give in to passions, pleasure, desires, or cravings of some kind through an act of sheer strength and willpower, but rather our ability to decide on what we want to be and do, and use our imagination to form the correct “internal representation” (IR) of ideas that either make them repulsive and disgusting, or desirable and attractive.

While we tend to think that things have power over us in the same sense that they’re dictating our experience and how we respond as a result, the fact is that we shape the outer world into an internal representation (IR) that we then use in place of the actual thing or activity as a way of experiencing it. As we think about something we’re associating other ideas with it, and using our “sensory system” to embellish it with sensory qualities that invoke emotional states. An idea that’s turned into an internal reality that serves to elicit strong emotions in response to it are how we’re using our will all the time to direct our own behavior and what we participate in by desiring and becoming one with it; as well as what we don’t because we find it unappealing for some reason. If we’ve made a decision to stop doing something, and we constantly struggle to resist it and create an experience of suffering because we’re abstaining from it, it’s because we haven’t learned how to use our higher mind to direct ourselves, and we’re using it incorrectly as a result.

The body, which is what we also refer to as the subconscious mind, because it inhabits and operates it, is operated by memory, and forms all of our natural behaviors as repetitive patterns and daily rituals and tendencies. The subconscious “thinks” in pictures and is experiential in nature. This means we communicate with it and act to program it with a form of virtual memory by imagining ideas as an experience of them. Its primary motive is “self-preservation”, so all of its impulses as feeling emotional states are geared towards maintaining the status quo and habits engaged in on a routine basis. It’s primarily instinctual in nature and motivated by pleasure or pain. It moves deeper into and seeks out whatever it deems pleasurable, and moves away from or avoids whatever it deems painful. It forms, firmly establishes and faithfully maintains habits and addictions, and is nearly always craving and wanting something. All of its needs are physical and material in nature and it works and is driven by emotions, making it impulsive and urge oriented. When it doesn’t get what it “needs and desires” it causes pain and suffering through emotions and physical withdrawals, which is experienced as a form of death (no longer able to sustain itself through that activity).

The subconscious mind is the creative aspect of the mind that’s capable of shaping and producing material realities, both inwardly and outwardly. It does this by turning a feeling or idea into a reality in the faculty of the imagination. Being memory oriented, it acts to create our memories from actual experiences, replaying them as a means of continuing to create by way of them, and as the means of being fed an idea as a form of “seeded thought” that it then fashions into a reality as a form of virtual memory. The imagined idea as an original creation is formed and appears in the imagination in exactly the same way as an actual memory does. This virtual memory as an internal representation of an idea operates in exactly the same way as an actual memory creating a kind of blueprint or template as an internal experience that forms the basis for the correlating external experiences of the same kind.

This “virtual memory” is an image, scenario, or movie-like idea that’s translucent (like a reflection on glass) in nature (can be seen fully while looking at something else), and becomes our perceptual lens as a filtering mechanism that reorganizes the elements of our outer reality to match the theme and emotions of the inner one. The IR becomes a kind of template or map for structuring and navigating the outer experience. Because of this tendency to “perceive out of memory and IR’s”, we never directly see or experience things as they actually are (a part from us), but rather as we “remake them” through our perception of them. This perception based on or produced by an IR or memory, works through the same principles as value judgments and either makes something appear desirable, likeable, and pleasurable, or undesirable, despicable and unappealing, or disgusting somehow.

When we decide and say we’re no longer going to do something, but we continue to form it in our mind as pleasurable and desirable, we struggle to resist it and continue to want it. We make giving it up a painful experience and the longing for it never goes away, so we’re always “tempted” by it. If instead, realizing how the mind works, we change the IR we’re forming into something that’s disgusting, repulsive, and painful, then we have no trouble resisting it, and thoughts of it eventually go away altogether. When we no longer think about it, it’s no longer a part of us and it exercises no control over us. This is the accurate use of the will – to make a decision to take control of what’s normally and unconscious process, and inject instead the idea we want to create in its place – then change the IR of what we’re stopping or looking to transform, while embellishing and enhancing the IR of the new idea we’re replacing it with.

Internal Representations, like reality itself are formed through sensory attributes, qualities, and characteristics that either makes it up-close, in vivid color and compelling, or far-away, black and white and neutral. If we make something up-close, immediate, full Technicolor, and create it as a full sensory experience of what you’re seeing, hearing, feeling, touching, smelling or tasting, and what you’re telling yourself about the experience that gives it meaning, and you create it with very positive emotions that make it pleasurable and beautiful, you create a strong desire for it. This gives your subconscious a very compelling “memory” that it steadily move towards and into, while seeking it out and connecting with that same idea in your immediate outer environment. If you then neutralize the current idea that you want to eliminate by turning it to black and white, pushing it out far into the distance so it seems far away, and assign negative sensory qualities and emotions to it, the subconscious, being given a more desirable alternative forgets about it, moves away from or avoids the old, eventually disconnecting from it all together outwardly, and moves instead into the fulfillment of the new and pleasurable idea.

The will is the active component of the conscious mind that can make new decisions that are not a part of its formative conditioning and habitual in nature, and can rule out one idea while replacing it with another. It impregnates the subconscious imagination with the seed as a unique idea that is then grown and formed into maturity in the imagination and manifests as an experience that bridges the inner with the outer, both of which are the creation of the subconscious mind as its offspring. The subconscious mind, when not being fed by its own personal will as an intentional idea for creating, absorbs instead the will of others as mental and emotional impressions or suggestions going on around it that it uses to generate thoughts in the imagination, and not only creates the individual (mind and body) according to those thoughts, but also creates the outer experience of those thoughts as its reality.

Anytime we passively take in an idea from outside of us (thoughts of another), and we form them into IR’s as a virtual reality, and make them our own by continuing to think about them, we’re choosing (unconsciously) to manifest and give life to the will of others through us. We’re literally lending our will to them, allowing them to determine us and the reality we experience as the perceptual lens we look through. The conscious, willful mind, is what’s traditionally called the “gate-keeper”, and is the aspect of the self that decides what’s allowed into the subconscious and what’s not. It analyzes, intuits, and evaluates the information to decide whether it’s true or not, valuable in some way, or would be beneficial as a means of upgrading the mental paradigm by incorporating it. It’s the “editor” that filters information through reasoning. It’s the part of our selves that’s always actively choosing even when we’re unaware (no choice is a choice) and decides what stays and what goes. It’s the aspect of the mind that has the ability to intentionally self-create through the active transformation of old ideas into new ones.

Spiritual Guidance – Psychics, Spirit Guides, and Our Higher-Self

The idea of spiritual guidance, like all things, means different things to different people, so in order to talk about it in a meaningful way, we have to start by defining it. Spiritual guidance indicates receiving information about something that concerns us from a non-local source other than ourselves. We’re asking for guidance from what is sometimes an unknown or somewhat ambiguous source. In the most natural sense of what we could call “ongoing guidance”, we’re always resonating with and drawing in information as ideas from the ether as the unified field that we’re all submersed in and an active part of. This information in the truly spiritual sense exists as archetypes (whole ideas) that come as scalar energy (unified form) that has both acoustic and optical (dual) properties, and as it enters into our mind, unfolds as a feeling that spontaneously  produces an inner voice and mental impressions as expanding on an existing idea, revealing what was previously hidden aspects, that come as the result of a “transmission of information” as realizations of some sort.

In the purely spiritual sense, we are given the ability to self-create through choice and free will, and are we are ultimately fully responsible for all of our own creations. The individual right to make decisions and willfully bring them about as a reality that provide us with experiences of our own creation are NEVER violated in the spiritual sense because they can’t be. We are only capable of “accessing and drawing in” information that we act as a natural receptor for through resonance. All information from the spiritual realm of pure energy as archetypal ideas in their potential state, come as realizations around ideas that present us with new opportunities to decide for ourselves. It (information as an outside source) never makes decisions for us, “tells us” what to do, or gives us “point blank answers” to questions. Answers as guidance come through a form of coincidence, introspection, and synchronicity as a chain-of-association, that provides us with new insight around something that brings what was previously unknown elements into full awareness where we gain instant clarity around them, and through the newly acquired awareness we naturally decide.

Any questions and inquiries are directly linked to the answers in the environment around us. Just by wondering about something and thinking about it in an in-depth manner, forms a kind of gravitational field to the answer in everything outside of us. Inquiring about something internally as a true desire to know, sets an intention in place as a vibratory frequency (all thoughts form electromagnetic fields) that resonates with that same idea in everything else, giving it prominence where it stands out, we notice it, and as we place our attention on it we draw it into our mind by thinking about it, and as a result gain new information regarding it. Everything in what we call the “spiritual realm” is energetic in nature (pure consciousness) and requires a local mind and a material body in order to be “received and interpreted” as a coherent part of our personal reality.

We can’t act as a conduit for something we don’t honestly have a desire for, what our mental paradigm won’t allow us to comprehend, or that doesn’t already exist as a form of memory. Whatever we have memories around, we think about and create as conceptualizations in our imagination (memories are replayed and relived in the imagination), programming us to the frequency of that idea as a form of theme, and we become magnetized to it in everything around us, drawing in and interacting with that same idea as it exists in our environment. We can’t obtain or act as a channel for anything we can’t conceptualize, comprehend to the point of forming and internal representation of, or that’s not a part of our soul’s memory in terms of similar experiences.

The only thing that can “come to us” is what’s of the same nature (memory) as we are. When something doesn’t come naturally, it’s because it’s not meant to. It’s because we’re not ready for it in terms of maturity and growth, or where we’re at in a greater process as a phase and stage of our life, or we’re simply not of the same idea in terms of our constitution (frequency), and therefore don’t act to attract and absorb it as an idea that that has the potential for becoming a reality. We only “receive” what we ask for through a desire and imaginary thought process. We only find what we “look for” and intentionally seek out. We only penetrate an idea, or open closed doors through a constant form of action taken on an idea that we’re presented with. When we sit back in a state of limbo not taking any affirmative action because we’re not sure of anything, waiting for stuff to magically come to us, we don’t act as a magnet for anything. All things only come to us when we decide and take action on those decisions, which opens up a means for new things to come into play through the activity itself.

All knowledge is acquired through a desire and connection to it and through constantly pursuing and engaging in the activity of acquiring it by becoming one with it experientially. We only obtain what we have a love for, connection to, and strong desire for. Whatever we form an internal representation as living concept, becomes a frequency that we act to program ourselves with, and we become an antenna and magnet for it. A thought that’s imagined with intensity (turned into a sensory reality) forms an electromagnetic field as a vibratory frequency that has a self-organizing mechanism inherent in it. This organizational mechanism acts to attract and naturally bring about more of that idea as an experience that allows us to gain deeper and deeper forms of self-realization. We don’t need to ask “anyone” for our own answers, we simply have to tune into our own thoughts and feelings regarding it, form a strong desire for it by associating positive and compelling emotions to it, setting an intention and desire for it, then pay attention to any form of associated ideas that come to us from a variety of sources in our immediate environment. As associated ideas come to us we intuitively recognize them as a form of inspiration that brings realization into the true nature of the idea. This realization “is” the guidance.

When we turn to other people as professed “psychics” or clairvoyants, asking for information about ourselves and our life, we’re opening ourselves to a large array of what can be very deceptive or incorrectly interpreted information. Psychics work by reading the energy around you which comes as feelings that form a mental impression as symbolic metaphorical images, which are sometimes accompanied by a voice as the meaning of the images. These mental impressions are a form of memory that’s imprinted in your aura (mind-field) as thoughts that you dwell in repetitively with strong emotions or that are of an intense nature. While it’s possible for anyone to literally “read someone’s mind” by forming rapport with them, and seeing their mental impressions or “hear” thoughts as more of a feeling, it still has to be interpreted in terms of what it means, and when this happens, you’re now working out of the psychics mental paradigm, and who knows if the interpretation is going to be accurate or not. As anyone knows, observing a situation from a detached perspective and not really able to identify with it, as opposed to being “in the experience” having it as a part of a larger congruent reality, can be very different.

When you rely on someone else to tell you what your answers are and what your direction in life should be, or what decisions you should make in different situations, you’re literally letting them take control of your will, your life, and your soul’s destiny. You’re relying on someone to “know” for you, instead of knowing yourself. The entire goal of the soul within the material realm is to become self-aware, and to gain deep realization into its true nature and ability to willfully self-create. This only comes by self-reflecting, turning inward and recognizing your own feelings, becoming aware of your true nature, what you feel a strong love for and connection to, and making decisions based on that.

True inner guidance comes by connecting to our self on a higher plane, through what’s called our “Higher-Self” or “Superconsciousness”. This aspect of ourselves (notice this is always plural) exists on a higher plane that’s “above this plane” and therefore able to see it in its entirety, while simultaneously acting as the choreographer for it. Our Higher Self communicates with us through our own inner voice that’s being used by a different authority, and nearly always takes on a parental attitude of teaching us by discussing things with us, allowing us to gain deeper insights into them, or as a lover that’s exceedingly intimate and is a fundamental part of us that always has our best interest in mind, while knowing everything about us. In this relationship there’s never a self-serving agenda involved, no errors in thinking or perceiving, and all guidance as answers to our inquiries come as experiences that expand our awareness around things, providing us with the information we need to make a clear decision with full accountability as to what they’ll produce.

All of our actions, which come as a continuum of feelings, thoughts, and emotions that create a reality by living out a story about it, are creative in nature and we incur karma because of them. All actions produce an effect of an equal or greater magnitude. The decisions we make, and what we do because of those decisions, form who we are as a person and imposes a direction on our life. Whenever we look outside of ourselves to someone or something else, whether an actual person or “spirit guide”, looking, not for insight around ideas, but for a decision to be made for us, we throw fate to the wind, and sell our soul by becoming a channel for others to command our will. As a general rule, we should NEVER give our will over to another by letting them make decisions for us, or tell us what to do, and therefore “control us” as a result.

What’s commonly referred to as “spirit guides” or “ascended masters”, can mean a variety of things based on what system a person has been trained under, and what they’re actually “connecting with and accessing” as a result. But all are “entities” of various sorts that are usually metaphorical in nature as mythological gods, wise people who have gone before us, or even animal spirits that represent qualities and characteristics as behaviors that are ideal for performing natural operations. Angels and daemons, for example, represent individual qualities and characteristics that only perform certain operations, and are not composite beings that have free will. Humans are the only beings within the material realm that are imbued with the ability to choose and the will to actualize that choice as an experience of reality. As we choose, we set a reality into motion that creates and gives us a certain type of experience as the result of our choice. If we don’t like it, we’re free to make alterations or new decisions to change it, and if we do like it, then we keep going and continue creating more of that reality. Either way, the choice is ours.

What many people refer to as “God”, is in reality, our Higher-Self on a higher dimension, that we’re intimately connected to, and who knows the divine plan of our life that was laid out as a pattern before we were ever born into a physical body. The whole purpose of our physical existence is to live out as an experience the pattern of our karma, which was created in whole before we were ever born. Choice and free will is not a fact or an illusion, but rather something that was decided and willfully set into motion from a higher plane as the enactment of our accumulated decisions as an ongoing creative process. Karma, is what we call the “absolute law” because it works out of vibration, which automatically produces the pattern of that vibration as a reality that provides us the experience of it. We only truly learn (form and develop) through experience, which forms all of our memories. Our paradigm as our mental structure or “model of the world”, is formed through accumulated memories that are all integrated to form a harmonious cohesive whole. This life and all that proceed out of it are based on vibratory frequency as an indigenous pattern. There’s no getting around or side-stepping this. Whatever frequency we vibrate at determines the pattern we naturally form as our “perception” of ourselves, others, and the world in general. Our life is the way it is because it’s how we perceive it, and the relationship we form with ourselves in everything else, that forms a consistent story line, that we live as a consistent outer experience.

Every decision we make, moment by moment, that determines our actions, is creative in nature. We willfully (intentionally) act out our decisions, turning them into reality as the expression and experience of them. When we give other people the right an ability to make decisions for us, we surrender our creative power within our own lives, and give it to others to create for us. Any decisions and action taken on that decision renders karma (cause and effect). Only humans are gifted with the ability to self-create by making decisions for themselves and acting out those decisions to produce an experience of reality that simultaneously creates them by way of that experience.

The animal kingdom, and even the divine kingdom outside of humans (as far as we know), don’t have the ability to choose and self-create through those choices to develop new qualities and characteristics that alter or determine their destiny. This is purely a human gift based on the “fall of angels” who acted collectively to create the human race, giving us multiple qualities and composite characteristics. We are complex beings formed out of “unique combinations and dynamic formulas” that we are in charge of producing, rather than singularities as single qualities that always act to perform the same operation in an automatic and routine fashion. We are composite beings who can direct our own development and how we naturally express to create realities based on the accumulative experiences gained from our choices and the reality those choices produced as an experience that forms our soul’s memory, out of which we continue to make decisions and form similar experiences as an ongoing evolutionary process.

Mastering Your Will to Accomplish Goals – Thought, Desire, Imagination, and Action

Harmony and Alignment is the Key to Creating

Many times we set goals for ourselves as a means of self-development, lifestyle change, or improving our life conditions, where we start off with a feeling of determination and will power, only to have it fade, weaken, and give up relatively early in the process. We don’t seem to have the ability to stick with something long enough to accomplish it, or we start doubting it, wavering, and changing our mind as soon as it becomes difficult. Then we can feel disappointed in ourselves, let down, and realize weaknesses of various sorts that become discouraging, often preventing us from trying again. We simply give into the feeling of being unable to create and be empowered in our own lives, and live a mundane and unfulfilling existence, or succumb to the very things we have a relentless desire or moral need to overcome. The more we try and fail the more discouraged we become, until at some point, we quit trying.

The main reason we think we’re making decisions for ourselves that we can’t willfully complete or produce, is because we fail to align all aspects of ourselves to the same goal. In order for us to manifest a new behavior, character trait, or reality of any kind, requires the alignment of the conscious (the one making the decision) with the subconscious (the one that produces it as a reality) mind. This alignment of the two material minds is synonymous with aligning the two hemispheres of the brain, because the mind operates the brain, and the entire system through the brain. The conscious mind is the aspect of the mind that possesses the ability to choose as a change of some sort, and is the intellectual “talking and dialoguing” mind, while the subconscious is the emotional, feeling and experiential aspect of the mind. Thought and emotion are always in-sync, and whatever emotion is married to the thought, becomes the formative motive for shaping the thought as a material manifestation.

Goals, and what seems like choices we make that are never fulfilled, is usually because the wrong emotion is associated to the thought as a reality. The subconscious only motivation is self-preservation and maintaining the status quo through habitual states. It’s habitual (automatic) in nature and operates out of memory as established patterns. In order to manifest something new or to change a habit, we have to work directly with the subconscious mind by programming it with the “reality of the desired goal”, while convincing it of how it will benefit in emotional terms.

Emotion is produced basically in two ways, one is as a response to our own thoughts, or from a charge we absorb that’s being projected from others or from our environment. Emotions are the primary energy of the astral plane, which can be equated to the atmosphere around us (of the Earth) that acts as an energetic medium that not only connects us to everyone else, but also serves as the means of transmitting emotional charges as a basic form of communication as “vibratory states”. Emotions of the physical plane are absorbed into the body, stimulating the chakra system (energy matrix of the astral body) that in turn stimulates our endocrine glands, which produce hormones that are of the same frequency (nature) as the stimulation, and alters our body chemistry and state to match or be the equivalent of it. This is how, from an evolutionary perspective, we stay in-tuned too and at the same energetic vibration of the environment in which we live, interact, and survive.

Anytime there’s a conflict of interest between the two minds, they act to sabotage and counteract each other. We have not only to bring the conscious and subconscious minds into harmony with each other, but also match the inner vision of the goal with our life conditions, circumstances, and associations. You don’t ever want to set yourself up so that in order to achieve the goal you have to constantly resist something that’s conflicting, or expose yourself constantly to what prevents it or steadily moves you away from it. All goals need to be of a personal nature and can’t require somebody else to achieve. The only real goals in life are those that pertain to developing yourself in some way through use of your creative power to “choose and willfully produce” desired experiences of reality that give you a certain type of “feeling”. Feelings are the language of the soul, and the desired result of all material goals.

The only way we create in life is by operating according to law, not by working against law. Law states that’s the feminine and masculine must always be in alignment and harmonious in order to pro-create or produce a material reality as its expression or offspring. We have to associate the proper emotion to our thought as an experience of the reality we wish to create, and then match the outer environment and what we connect and associate with, with the desired inner reality. We have to associate with whatever and whomever is of the same mind-set and reality as that which we wish to create. When we connect and associate with what’s of the same nature as our desired creation, it’s supported, strengthened, and amplified. When we continue to exist in relation with what’s not of the same nature (frequency), that contradicts or undermines it, we’re constantly tempted, filled with self-doubt, feel weakened and ultimately lose our focus.

Whatever we associate with we become like. Like always produces more of what’s like itself. This is the Law of Vibration. We only resonate (serve to vibrate and bring into an active state) with “shared qualities and characteristics” of that which we exist in relationship with. If our desired goal for manifesting change is not a natural part of the relationships we form with others and our life circumstances, nothing is serving to activate or vibrate us with that same idea as qualities and characteristics, and instead is constantly activating contradictory ideas in us. To manifest ourselves and reality, we have to create a completely harmonious and synchronized process.

As we make goals for desired change, we need to check those goals with all areas of our life to make sure they’re compatible and can be harmoniously integrated, producing beneficial effects in all areas of our life. If a desired change in one area contradicts another, or will cause problems in another area, they act to counterbalance each other, and a form of debate takes place as a negotiation and internal conflict. Anytime we’re experiencing internal conflict around an idea it acts to sabotage and contradict it. So any goal as a desired manifestation should be thought out in terms of how it’ll affect relationships, lifestyle, spiritual practices, health, economics, career, and so on. The idea has to be integrated into your life in a congruent and beneficial manner, or you’ll have to decide if the goal is more important to achieve than what you’ll have to give up or let go of in order to accomplish it.

There has to be a clear realization of the reality of what you’re achieving in terms of your entire life, and only when there’s congruence and continuity should you continue. Sometimes the goal simply needs to be modified to accommodate other areas in an agreeable way. All internal conflict has to be resolved around the goal, and all areas brought into alignment in terms of how achieving the goal will affect them. The benefits that will come through achieving the goal have to be well defined and infused with positive emotions that will make it very compelling and desirable. The most natural form of “willpower” lies in our “desire” for something and our ability to imagine it as an actual experience.

Once a life ecology check has been made, and all internal conflict resolved, the goal has to be concentrated on and formed in the imagination as an actual experience of the reality it implies. It has to be formed in sensory terms – what are you seeing, hearing, feeling, touching, smelling and tasting, and what are you telling yourself about it that makes it mean something – and you have to play it out as a scenario that’s exactly as you want it, while associating very positive and compelling (magnetic) emotions to it. You have to form it as an internal representation that’s up close, in full vivid color, imbued with strong sensations, and create your experience of it as being very fulfilling and satisfying, and really tune into the “feeling” it gives you. All goals are ultimately to acquire a feeling of some kind, and the feeling will act as your barometer and navigation system. The feeling of an experience is its vibration.

Imagine the desired reality in as many different scenario’s and circumstances as possible, developing each one until you get it just like you want it. Then, when you’ve perfected it, play it over and over, enhancing the sensory experience and emotion it brings, while telling yourself a story about it that infuses it with meaning. As we form internal dialogue around it while imaging it in vivid terms, feeling it deeply as an actual experience, we seat it into the subconscious mind as a form of virtual memory. This memory as a sensory reality forms a vibratory frequency as a pattern that the subconscious uses to produce the emotional state (body chemistry) and behavior (actions) necessary, while connecting to that same idea as a frequency in the environment around us, magnetizing us to it.

The subconscious acts to connect us with the reality of our thoughts in everyone and everything around us, while also producing all the behavior and actions necessary for initiating, interacting, and causing it. The subconscious mind produces all of our natural behaviors out of various forms of memory. To manifest an idea as a new habit, behavior, way of being, or experience of reality, the goal must be created as a form of memory, that’s very emotionally compelling. Positive emotions attract and move into, while negative emotions repel and move away from. The subconscious is motivated by emotions associated with pleasure and pain. The feelings and emotions associated to an idea, determine whether or not we are unconsciously (without direct awareness) moving into and towards our dreams, or away from and avoiding our dreams. Anytime we’re feeling apprehension, fear, anxiety, dread, loss, sacrifice, or pain around an idea, even one we say we want, we are actually acting “on ourselves” to prevent it. The subconscious mind always moves towards pleasure and away from pain. To move naturally into an idea you have to associate pleasure (positive feelings) with it, and hold it in positive regard.

If we set a goal that represents loss of any kind, especially if what we’re losing is valuable to us, or brings pain and grief of any kind, we have to come to terms with it, and decide to give it up in favor of the goal. Otherwise, again, they’ll act to contradict and sabotage each other. What tends to manifest and become naturally established is what exists in a harmonious fashion with both the conscious and subconscious, with the subconscious typically dominating the conscious mind. If it comes down to feelings and emotions contrasting thought, emotions nearly always win, not only because of the strong motive quality, but also because behavior is emotionally driven and are what connect us to everything else in the material plane of our natural environment.

The conscious mind has the ability to direct and program the subconscious mind through choice and will, but only if it knows how to work intuitively with the subconscious, and convert ideas into emotional realities as vibratory states. We have to speak to the subconscious in its own language, as experiences with full sensory enhancement that naturally elicits positive emotions in response to it. Every idea is developed and actualized based on the emotion associated with it. Emotion comes as the result of experience, and is what shapes the experience through the thoughts produced as the story we tell ourselves about it that interprets it to mean something. An idea as an emotional experience and internal dialogue (interpretation as a story) forms a memory. Memory is the language of the subconscious, and is what it uses to create our experience of both the inner and outer world as a correspondence to each other.

The way to form a goal as a manifestation of a new form of reality, is to decide on the change you desire to bring about, make sure that it only requires you to achieve, run an ecology check with all other areas of your life to ensure its congruent, modifying it as necessary to ensure it will produce desired results. Then imagine it as if it’s already real, forming an internal representation of it as up close, in vivid color with strong sensations (feelings), and in a way that makes it emotionally pleasurable and compelling. Then developing the idea until you get it just the way you want it in terms of how it makes you feel, then replay that idea over and over in your imagination, seating it in your subconscious as an actual memory. Once established and utilized by the subconscious as a memory, it provides a template as a pattern for creating it as an outer reality or experience of reality. All realities are created using the elements available in the immediate environment, and though it may not look like you thought it would or come about tin the way you thought it would, you’ll know it by the feeling it gives you. The feeling is the key to recognition.

As we think and feel, we tune ourselves to the vibration of that reality, and we begin resonating with it in everything around us.  We naturally connect and form a gravitational field with that same reality as a “type of experience” in our outer environment. The memory as an internal representation provides a kind of “road map” as a steady chain of association that provides “action steps”. We begin noticing things through a form of coincidence, where things stand out that connects us to it, drawing it to us and us to it, as a form of synchronicity. Whatever memories we associate ourselves with, we experience in our outer reality. This is the creative power of the mind that we’re using all the time without realizing it. We create our experience of reality based on our memories. Memories are formed from how we interpret the emotional events of our life that we then continue to think about and replay over and over, creating more of the same type of experiences. Anytime we think about something, we’re conditioning ourselves with those thoughts, and creating more of the same type of experiences. All emotional thought is a form of “request” to the Universe that says, “give me more of this”.

To create the future, create it as a preview of what’s to come. Our memories of the past create more of the same type of experiences in the present, which becomes the basis for the future. Our subconscious programming becomes our reality. By learning how to program our own mind with desired experiences, we learn how to literally manifest our reality at will, and shape ourselves by way of those realities. Our ability to choose (intentionally create) and the will (desire and imagination) is our soul’s ability to create reality and itself by way of that reality. It’s our mind that produces our experience of reality. As we think, feel, and imagine . . . . we become, and we reside in that world!

The Spiritual Nature of the Heart – The Seat of the Lower Soul

While many perceive the heart as being the “spiritual center” of the body and the aspect where divine knowledge is received and processed by the body, this is not an entirely accurate model, and is the result of misinterpretation of various sorts. In order to look at this from a different model, that will allow us to see it in a new way, the spiritual body is laid out as an energetic hierarchy of “spiritual centers” that acts as an operational system for bringing pure consciousness into the material body, giving it life, while animating it with a personality. This 7-fold hierarchy, is further broke down into an upper triad and a lower triad, joined together by the heart-center. It’s also looked at as the upper triad being of the spirit-mind, and the lower tetrad (4) being of the material body, of which the heart is included as the highest aspect of our lower nature. The heart represents the horizontal plane of the material reality, and the mind (the upper 3) as the vertical plane in which divine energy as consciousness flows down from “above”, entering the body through the three upper centers of the head and brain, which controls the body through the nervous system and the endocrine system. When these two (mind and body) intersect as a vertical and horizontal flow of intelligent energy, it forms a cross representing equilibrium as a unified being that’s both mind and body, divine and animal.

The 3 upper chakras represent the Supernal as the trinity or 3-fold nature of the mind and consciousness as a gradient between higher and lower aspects of itself. It exists in its original state as 3-fold in nature, and is not manifest or formed in the physical sense (which is represented by 4, or the cube), but acts to create an “inner state” that becomes the basis for the outer physical equivalent. Consciousness is not “of the brain”, but rather operates the brain as the regulatory organ of the body. This trinity as a triad is based purely on thought and imagination which forms the basis as a conceptualization or internal representation that provides the template for physical manifestation as its outer expression. The mind is the faculty in which energy as intelligence is shaped into an image as the perceptual model or vibratory frequency that’s superimposed over the outer world (looked through), producing a corresponding outer expression.

Intelligence as qualities of consciousness in their purely potential state, enter the body through the crown chakra as the active component, that’s received by the Pineal as the passive receptor, and formed into an astral image in the imagination, which is then developed into an applicable idea by continuing to think about it. Our inner voice thinks and speaks it into reality by stimulating and informing the body. Our thoughts as imagined ideas, operate the nervous system through electrical impulses as a form of communication where the mind actually operates the body through the nervous system of the spine, stimulating the endocrine system which produces hormones as the chemical equivalent of our thoughts, that both alter the body’s vibratory-conscious state, and produce internal biological operations and natural behaviors that are all a part of the same idea. And through this creative process, bring the invisible imagined idea into existence as a physical correspondence.

The heart center, the first lower energy center to receive the formulated idea as an imagined thought, absorbs the electrical impulses, altering the chemistry of the blood, which circulates throughout the body modifying and regulating the state of all the material organs to vibrate at the same rate, while also connecting us to that idea in the outside world. It’s through the heart that we both send and receive information of a sensory nature. By altering the chemistry of the blood through electrical impulses, we alter the state and health of the entire body. The adrenals produce the emotions of the thought, the kidneys act as a filtering system, and the sexual organs energize and give birth to the idea as a living offspring.

The heart is the seat of the soul for the “lower soul”, associated with material reality and the animal body. It’s through the heart that we radiate and absorb information from and about our physical environment that’s sensory in nature, and driven by the sexual impulse, which regulates its intensity. Emotions are the language of the material realm that act to regulate our lower nature through automatic behaviors that require “no thought” to produce. All emotional energy which is being projected by everything around us is received into the body through the heart, where the information is separated into whatever is pertinent to every aspect in producing an experience of it, then distributed to that organ or aspect for processing and integration as a means of adjusting the state of the body to match its environment. Out of literally billions of bits of information being received continuously from the environment at any given moment, only 8 to 40 bits is sent to the brain for sensory processing and decoding, while the rest is downloaded into the body as “intuition”. It’s through our “gut feeling” that we accurately read and understand the outside world.

It’s not through our thoughts that we connect with the outside world, but rather through feeling sensations and emotions. On the physical plane, which is governed by our subconscious mind and lower, instinctual nature, we are being “operated“ in a largely instinctual fashion to behave according to the emotions we’re experiencing without actually thinking (reasoning) or consciously making a decision. Anytime we’re in our emotions as a reactive state, or being “charged”, we’re predominately unconscious and our emotions take control and begin directing and determining our thoughts, which is our creative power.

The seat of the human soul, as our personal and individual soul, lies in the 5th chakra, which functions as our voice, which in the silent mode is “thought”, and in its outer mode is speaking and talking. What we speak, is a reflection of our inner thoughts and is the willful action that serves to call forth the reality of our thoughts by organizing the elements of the outer environment to match our inner imaginings. Thought is vibration as pure consciousness that’s formed into an idea through the imagination, which adapts it to individual mind, modifying it, and becomes their own personal thoughts. Our thoughts come as both an inner hearing or knowing and as an image or vision. What we picture and see in our minds eye, we think about by defining, assigning attributes and meaning, explaining through reasoning, describing as a form of observing, and conforming it in a way that can be applied meaningfully to our everyday life in order to self-create by way of them. We first create (develop) an idea internally by thinking about it, as an internal dialogue that shapes and conforms it, then by speaking it, transmitting that same idea to others and the outside world, forming it in their minds as well, as a way of initiating, eliciting cooperation and attracting it as a joint reality and outer experience of what originates as an internal experience.

The heart is the receptor for material information, and the Pineal is the passive receptor for spiritual, conscious information that’s not born of the material realm, but comes in intact and whole. Thought and sensory feeling, is when pure thought moves down into the material realm of the body, where it stimulates and produces the sensory-emotional equivalent, which is necessary to attract and transmit and produce the behaviors for manifesting it as an actual outer experience. In the material realm, thought and emotion are always married as masculine and feminine aspects of each other, and are always equivalent as complementary opposites. One influences and produces the other, and one is always the natural response of the other in a cause and effect relationship. The only question is, which one is active and therefore dominant, and which one is non-active and therefore acting as the passive vehicle for the other. Thoughts are either producing the emotions that are of the same nature, or emotions are producing thoughts of the same nature. Our mind is either operating our body, or our body is operating our mind. In the ideal situation, this moves back and forth based on what is most appropriate and needed for adjustment of our overall being of which they’re both a part, yet the mind should always be in constant control of utilizing this regulatory process by using the body as a passive receptor for information obtained from the environment, by rendering itself passive to the body, or by allowing instinct as immediate and automatic reaction of an emotional nature to act as a means of protecting and preserving the body in a healthy state.

Just as the heart connects and regulates the flow of information from both the upper and lower in a harmonious fashion, the human soul connects and acts as a medium for the higher soul (self) and the lower soul (animal), and formulates itself out of the combination. The individual soul draws down archetypal identities from the universal soul as a means for shaping itself as an individual that’s unique from everyone else and self-determined, while also being able to draw on the personality of the lower self, which is emotional in nature and lacks individuality and sees itself as part of a greater whole in which it’s just like everybody else (the herd mentality). The lower self operates out of conformity that robs us of our individuality and ability to willfully self-create by investing us in the group mind of mass consciousness of an animal like nature where we’re merely a part of a species driven by instinct regulated by emotions. We fall prey to automated behavior that are self-creative and come without thought or reasoning.

Likewise, there are two kinds of intuition; one of the material plane where we receive information “about” the material plane as a whole, which is received and distributed through the heart, and of the spiritual plane that contains higher knowledge of things not of the material plane, which is summarized through the throat and comes as “thoughts of a universal nature” (non-personal). While many think intuition is a function of the Pineal, this isn’t entirely accurate, the Pineal receives ideas as imagery, but thought as our inner hearing metabolizes and discerns what’s received, vibrating it outwardly. Intuition is of a unified nature, which comes by developing our intuition in a conscious manner, and acts to identify the spiritual component that underlies and acts to motivate material reality as seeing into its inner nature, and knowing it as it actually is, rather than as it appears outwardly. Higher forms of intuition come as a marriage of mind and heart.

Thought Projection, Distant Healing, and Praying for Others

psychic

 

We have been trained through many traditional practices of various sorts, many of which are religious in nature, to “pray for others” when they’re experiencing crisis or hardship of some sort. We’re also taught to send positive thoughts their way through intention or visualization of some sort, which we ourselves consider “positive” – positive of course being a relative term designed to engage others with the person manifesting them – not necessarily to the person they’re being “sent to” or projected towards. Likewise, we are still imbued with the tendency to pray to some outside source or entity through which we imagine we draw power or are helped in some way. We’re taught to always look outside of ourselves “to” God or spiritual masters of some kind, which reside in some imaginary realm and are able to give us or bestow upon us what we ourselves can’t seem to muster up. Yet power itself only truly exists within us, and only comes into the world “through us”. It needs a physical vehicle in order to act. We’re only capable of utilizing powers that we ourselves are aligned with and are similar to in moral terms.

 

If we completely put the idea of karma aside, though it’s an “absolute law”, and look exclusively at the power of thought, we can further see how this idea of praying for another produces no real effect, except in us. Thoughts that are aroused in response to something, and formulated for the purpose of “directing them” towards someone else in an attempt to somehow “influence” their mind, and therefore alter their physical condition, produces no meaningful effect (in them) because it usually operates against law, and works through an attempt to violate choice and free will of the person the imagined thoughts are being directed towards. Thought itself is only “powerful” in terms of influence, when it’s sincere, concentrated on and built up over time, and if the person directing it has well developed will power. Thoughts, in order to be effective for another must be free of selfishness or any form of self-motivated agenda’s or personal beliefs (even of the most positive nature), and must be sustained through a consistent mindset. Very few people, especially in our modern day society of constant distraction and coercion, scattered mindset and blatant inability to concentrate for even a short time, our thoughts are not powerful, don’t travel very far, and are ineffectual. They dissolve almost as soon as they’re formed.

telepathy-300x222

Thoughts, even when concentrated and absent of self-motivated ideas, can only be “received” by another person whose mind is in a passive and receptive state, and who is of the same will or consciousness (frequency) of the person sending them. As long as a mind is active and full of self-oriented thoughts and feelings, it can’t receive any thoughts and feelings being transmitted through the field from another. Most people have constant thoughts running through their mind and are not tuned into being able to “receive” ideas being transmitted. Especially those who are having problems or facing a crisis of some sort, in which their mind is probably being run almost exclusively on anxiety around the situation. Anytime a mind is in an active state, it can’t act as a receiver. It has to be relaxed, in a passive mode, and free of constant thoughts, and able to sympathize with the ideas available in the conscious field around them in order to take them in, hold them by fixating attention on them, and begin thinking about them until they become an internal reality as a possibility. Once a new possibility is realized, they have to “choose it” over the current reality, and bring it into fruition through willful action. None of us have the ability to violate the choice and free will of another, do their “healing for them”, or decide in what way they need to heal, and why.

 

Every life situation and circumstances are the product of karma. Karma is what we call the “absolute law”, and is basically the law of cause and effect in terms of self-creation through life experiences. While we form an idea of a soul being innocent or “undeserving” of whatever happens to them, an extension of “victim mentality” or the belief that the universe is basically unjust and picks on people for no reason, or that events are random and not interrelated, and there are no consequences to what we set into motion through our own thoughts and behaviors, when in reality, everything happens to us at the personal level of producing an impact or involving us directly in an idea, and comes as the result of our own actions or thoughts as a reciprocal correspondence to our actions. Because of the time lapse involved, we often fail to recognize it. We act to draw on ourselves the results of our own attitudes, beliefs and behaviors, where we are on the “receiving end”, and therefore experiencing the same idea from the opposite perspective, which comes as what we call a “life lesson” as a direct reflection that allows us to see and understand our own psychological make-up and what areas or in what way we are invested in errors of thinking and perceiving.

Just as we are solely responsible for creating ourselves, we’re also solely responsible for healing ourselves (mentally, physically, emotionally, and morally), which only comes through self-realization of what we’ve done or are doing that’s causing it. We are both the cause and effect of our own life. We are truly self-determined in a purely unconscious sense. The only true form of helping another heal by gaining self-realization of their errors, is through compassion. To form compassion for another isn’t to feel sorry for them, or through empathy take on the same feelings and perspective, viewing life through their eyes, so to speak, but rather taking a position of “witnessing”, where we create a safe space (relinquish all judgment and al creative interaction) for them to self-reflect, and we serve to reflect back to them their own story about things without tainting or altering it through our emotions and mental paradigm, changing it to conform to our personal perception of them, and as a result, they’re able to “see it” by projecting it onto a neutral and nonreactive mindset. We’re only able to see our “own mind” by telling our story where it’s not being manipulated or altered by the perception and reaction of another.

 

When we “hold space” for another as a neutral and shared atmosphere, and we withhold all judgment and the tendency to view their life through our paradigm, where we modify what they experience to be the same as we would experience in that same situation, and interact by sympathizing or discussing it rationally, or by feeling the need to “correct them”, advise them, or somehow comfort them, we don’t act as a mirror, but instead begin projecting onto them our own opinions about them, and what we call “transference” takes place. When we’re able to keep our mind and energy separate from theirs, and not react emotionally to anything that they say, while formulating in our mind in an objective manner and simply understand what it was like for them from their perspective, without interacting in any way, we mirror their experience back to them in an unadulterated form, and they’re able to gain realization around it as a result.

 

Through this realization as self-awareness, they’re able to become aware of what they were previously unaware of, and see what’s been operating at an unconscious level within their own psyche. All healing comes only through self-awareness that brings self-realization. We can only work with and act on ourselves to change what we’re aware of and “know”. Through awareness we’re empowered with our ability to consciously choose and willfully implement the ideas gained from the realization. We bring forth what was previously in the dark, and we begin working consciously with the law of cause and effect, and transform ourselves according to our own thoughts, emotions, and actions.

What Reactive Behaviors are showing you about Yourself

Reactive Behaviors show you the Areas of your Life that you’re still Unaware of

spiritual-awakening

In order to understand this idea, we have to look at the nature of a reaction, and what’s actually happening when we react, as well as what it means to “heal” in the sense that it’s being used here. Someone who acts to stimulate you into a reactive state because of how they’re being, what they’re doing or saying, or how they’re treating you, shows you areas about yourself, that you still remain unaware of,  either through denial, repression, or conditioning of some sort. Anytime we begin reacting, we switch into a form of auto-pilot, and literally go unconscious to what’s happening and what it is we’re actually doing. We’re being “controlled” by the person or idea that’s eliciting an immediate reaction in us. Because of this instant, automated factor, we not only create out of an unconscious state, but we do so by repeating patterns born out of memory of the past, which is what gives us the pattern necessary to act out in an automated fashion, requiring no awareness or thought process on our part as to what we doing and why, let alone realizing the consequences we draw to ourselves while in the illusory state.

Reactions come through associations of some sort that instantly references a memory where the same type of idea was being played out (which is the triggering mechanism), where we pull it out, superimpose it over the current situation using it to perceive it through, making it about the same idea, and act the same way we did in the memory, by making what’s happening in the present mean the same thing as the past. Our mind registers that “this” is the same as “that”. Because we make it mean the same thing, and therefore react in the same way, we can be triggered into a blind reaction by a behavior, tone of voice, a feeling, an attitude, an emotional state being demonstrated around us, the words being used, or through an idea being played out that we have strong emotional ties to that form what we call our “issues”.

Reactions can be both of a good nature, stimulating positive emotions that bring about pleasurable experiences, or of a bad nature that stimulate negative emotions that are painful and violent, and ultimately destructive in nature. But no matter the nature of the experience it causes, it comes as being controlled by whomever or whatever is causing the reaction, and going unconscious in our own life and acting in a way that creates our experience, shapes us by way of our own self-created experiences, and renders a like reaction to our actions as a chain reaction, where what we do in a reactive state becomes the cause for producing an equal or greater reaction in others, which becomes self-perpetuating and gains momentum through escalation. This is the most basic form of repeating the past in the present, or being a product of our conditioning and what we call karma, and the basis for all “sin” as creating while in an unconscious state and unaware of what we’re doing, and therefore creating in error.

DNA and the Pineal

The opportunity being offered anytime we’re feeling stimulated inside to instantly react to something outside of us in a pronounced and intense manner, is it allows us to see what idea as a conditioned memory is still alive in us, able to be activated and repeated in the present, causing more of the same ideas and situations as in the past. In shows in what ways we are controllable by outside forces, and how we keep repeating the past in the present as a means of determining our future. It allows us to see what our karma is as unconscious tendencies that we repeat over and over without any actual realization of what we’re doing. It allows us to see things about ourselves that we don’t normally see or recognize, because we’re covering them up or justifying them (as being real) through the story that we keep telling ourselves about them that make them seem real and true, and therefore justify our right to feel the way we do and “keep” them.

By realizing this ability to show us aspects of ourselves that we remain unaware of, where we build an illusion around it through the story we tell about it that makes it appear different than it really is, we fail to own it or be able to regulate it through awareness and willful action. If we completely remove all attention from the outside source causing the reaction, and instead place all of our attention on what’s happening inside of us that has nothing to do with what’s happening outside of us, we can see a process that takes place, instantly forming a “version of reality” that we systematically superimpose over the present situation as a means of instant interpretation that has a whole, preprogrammed pattern of behavior inherent in it as what we did before when the same thing happened to us. If we refrain from actually reacting while still letting the process that’s going on internally continue while observing it, we can notice what memory we associate to it, reference in relation to it, and use as an automated program for repeating a past idea by acting it out. We can notice what begins running through our mind as a story we start telling ourselves “about” what’s happening and what it means about us, other people, and the way the world is in general. Through reactive behaviors we repeat the patterns of the past in the present and they set the basis for our creating more of the same idea in our future. If we turn all our attention inwardly while allowing the reactive state to continue playing out in us, we’ll get a very clear idea on what areas in our life still remain unresolved and alive inside of us, that we’re continuing to create out of.

Through awareness alone, we can see our own internal process for how “we create” the reactive state as a means of cooperating with the same quality of consciousness in the present that we did in the past. We can witness what we’re doing to create our reactive state. Nobody ever “makes us” do anything, they just provide the stimulus for us to do it to ourselves. We create the inner state which produces the outer behavior as what we call a reaction that’s compulsive in nature. Nobody ever really controls us, we simply fail to be able to control ourselves, and in doing so, allow ourselves to be controlled by others. Because we imagine that something’s being done “to us” by another, we claim no responsibility for our own actions, and instead blame it on the person causing it. Blame itself is an illusion, because our internal state is always being conducted by us, and whatever is being done to us, is being done by us through a lack of self-awareness as to who’s doing the doing. So by becoming aware of what memories we have associated to reactive tendencies, and how our memories of the past continue to define us by shaping our experiences in the present, we can neutralize the “triggering mechanism” as an emotional charge, and in doing so, consciously decide how we want to perceive and respond to whatever is happening in the present moment, with full awareness of what we’re doing and what will result from what we’re doing.

Most of our memories as our primal conditioning are created by the mind of a child ingrained with a certain nature, predisposition, temperament, and tendencies, as an “interpretation” of events and activities in order to make sense of them, which comes by way of the meaning we give them that fashions the story we begin telling ourselves about them as a result. This story, formed from the imagination, intelligence and emotional state of a child, forms our “core beliefs” as the reality of our story and what’s required to sustain it, which is a personal creation as an illusion, which continues into our adulthood, where we continue perceiving reality according to our childhood story. Our beliefs shape our reality, not in the literal sense of the external elements themselves, but in terms of what we see and don’t see in any situation and how we interpret it to give it the meaning it holds for us as the means of experiencing it, while shaping our identity by way of our story about things. In this way, our memories, which are formed largely through an imaginary process of storytelling based on not knowing the true reality or other facts to what’s going on and only viewing it from “our perspective”, becomes our programming as our perceptual lens and mental filtering system, which forms the basis of all our perceptions of what we call reality, which is in fact a subjective experience of an outer objective reality. In this way our beliefs replace “actual” objective reality as an illusion that becomes a delusion, because we live out of this illusion as though it was true and thereby making it true for us.

As we witness the whole process that’s taking place within us, and being conducted by us, while shutting off all reference to the outside conditions and circumstances prompting the internal process, we can see clearly the illusion of it. We can see what we’re doing to ourselves to create the emotional state of the reaction. Through this self-awareness of the true reality of the situation, neutralizes the emotional charge as the triggering mechanism, dulling

the compulsiveness, and in that moment of calm where their used to be a storm, we realize we have a choice. We can choose how to first perceive it in a new light from a new (mature) perspective by staying in the present with what’s actually happening now, and how we want to respond accordingly. What originated as a thoughtless, knee jerk reaction, becomes a thoughtful relaxed response. In this way, the only thing that has changed, is that we took control of our own internal process instead of forfeiting it to others. We move from being “other referencing” to being “self-referencing”. By becoming aware of what we were previously unaware of, it loses its grip on us, and we find ourselves easily taking control of what was previously out of control.

Once we realize that our “perception as an interpretation” is actually something we do with our mind as a process of association and referencing the past with the present, we can actively engage in incorporating new models and paradigms necessary to form new types of experiences. We can literally take control of our own internal mental processes and direct them in an intelligent and deliberate manner by learning how to work by way of the laws as natural processes of the mind to create reality as a personal interpretation of what originates from a neutral set of events, completely devoid of personal meaning. Things only mean what we make them mean. Meaning is something we assign to material things as a way of interpreting them through a story about them as a way of experiencing them while simultaneously fashioning ourselves by way of our own perceptions. We can realize, that any time we experience being controlled by somebody else through a reaction were forming to them, we can realize that what’s actually happening is we are failing to take control of ourselves and turning over that right to another by remaining unaware of our own internal experience as a creative process. As we become aware of how we create our experiences, and we learn how to take control of our own internal processes, we come to a place where we no longer react, and instead remain relaxed and calm inside, and able to think clearly through an isolated state of inner peace. By taking control of our own mind, we exist in a constant state of introspection, that once we master, forms inner peace as self-awareness, responsibility, and competency in regards to our own self-creation and soul evolution.
