Mastering your own Mind: Will, Intuition, and our Relationship with our Higher Self

In order to learn how to master your own mind you have to form a working concept of it in practical terms. In order to do this we have to look at each aspect of the mind and how it functions as a dynamic part of the whole mind. What we commonly refer to as the “mind” is actually threefold in nature and operates simultaneously on different planes of existence as what we could think of as parallel dimensions that are interactive and interdependent in nature, just as what we call the material plane is three dimensions that are interlaced to form what we perceive as a unified, single dimension. The three dimensions of the material plane are accompanied by a fourth dimension of “time and space”, or space-time that’s non-material and purely invisible in nature as a mysterious force that “holds the material world together” as a unified living system. While the mind exists as what we can think of as “spheres of consciousness” that are multidimensional in nature, represented by the Monad in Sacred Geometry, dual aspects of the mind exist simultaneously on the same plane and are what act together in harmony with the Higher Mind to produce the entire reality of the lower material plane.

The Three Complementary Aspects of the Mind

The three primary aspects of the mind that function to create and operate within the material plane are referred to as the Higher Mind or Super-conscious, the subconscious, and the self-conscious mind, with the two latter ones making up what we call the lower mind of the personality. The Higher mind exists on a higher dimension that’s complementary to this one and when it descends into the lower plane it divides into dual and complementary aspects of itself that are necessary in order to self-create by creating an outer corresponding reality in which it “experiences itself”. All creation on the lower, material plane comes through the harmony of both the subconscious (feminine) and self-conscious (masculine) aspects of the same mind being directed and informed by the Higher Mind of the human Soul. It’s only by realizing the natural relationship that exists between the triune aspects of the same mind or soul that we can learn how to consciously cooperate in creating our self and our outer reality, which is formed as a projection of the self as our “perception”. All perception of the outer reality is formed by the individual mind as a primary form of self-expression. This is demonstrated in the symbol used for the Monad as a “dot within a circle”, or the brain that creates the outer membrane as an expansion of itself.

The most fundamental way of harmonizing the subconscious and self-conscious mind is by learning how to control your thoughts in term of random and repetitive thoughts that run through your mind in an automatic, habitual, and uncensored fashion. All habitual and repetitive thought patterns are produced by the subconscious mind out of memory of some form, whether from actual events of our life or as something we were taught. When we spend most of our time engaged in “thinking” as a form of running memories of various sorts through our mind in a repetitive fashion, we are not only being controlled and determined by our lower, uncreative nature, but we’re living out of a primarily unconscious state where we’re “acting on ourselves” to “inform ourselves” out of memories of the past and thereby only maintain habitual patterns and dynamics of some sort.

       This is the most predominant way we create the present out of the past and can predict the future as a continuation of the past. The subconscious mind has the ability to “create material reality”, yet it operates only out of memory or the thoughts and ideas it’s “given” as suggestions that provide the patterns and themes for creating. It’s passive and receptive in nature and lacks a will as the ability to discriminate and make decisions that provide the means for creating in new and unique ways. The subconscious is the same aspect of the mind we share with the animal kingdom that forms the personality of the body as a part of the “group mind” of a species, and lacks any “individuality” in the true sense, which only comes through the creative “will” that acts to impregnate the subconscious mind with “original thoughts” not derived from personal memory. The subconscious works through the faculty of the imagination and forms a reality out of whatever idea it’s given as a form of suggestion. It only acts to “absorb” and assimilate the thoughts that exist all around it, and doesn’t actually produce the thoughts themselves as ideas, but merely transforms them into material form as the reality of the meaning of the thoughts.

Most people spend their entire lifetime locked into the subconscious realm of the lower self where their thoughts are impulsive, repetitive, based on replaying memories or the past, blindly driven by passions and desires or some sort, or the result of thoughts given to them by others. All original thought and the creations that come from them come as the result of “will”, whether from our self or others. The will is the active component of the mind that acts to seed the passive aspect of the mind, which births it as an outer reality. Thought seeds the imagination which forms our perception and stimulates emotions in response to our thoughts that provide a pattern and instructions for corresponding actions. All behaviors are emotionally driven, and the emotions themselves are produced in response to our thoughts and whatever we place our attention on. All of our actions and deeds create outwardly producing consequences as reactions that form our karma.

Thought and the Creative Power of the Spoken Word

All thought comes as a form of inner dialogue as words spoken silently to ourselves that influences and shapes our perception of reality. Original thoughts as unique ideas impregnate the imagination of the personality with a form of suggestion that it develops into a possible reality as the means for expressing outwardly and manifesting a corresponding experience of reality. When we speak our thoughts outwardly we engage the imagination of other people in the same way, and they cooperate in co-creating it with us as a joint experience. As we speak words, both internally and outwardly, we literally act to call forth the reality of our words. How we think and speak are largely subconscious in nature and take place automatically. Our vocabulary comes predominately through unconscious processes of association. How we think and talk in terms of our sentences, phrases, and our style and figure of speech, all take shape below the self-conscious level. Words not only act to define and shape ideas, but also embody the imagery of the meaning of the words giving form to an ongoing stream of consciousness. As we think we imagine the reality of our thoughts as a form of replaying memories to produce a new variation, we act to provide the subconscious with the means of generating a corresponding outer experience of the same nature.

In the esoteric sense it’s the celestial forces of archetypes that work on the four elements that cause external manifestation. Stars (suns) influence the archetypal forces of the human psyche that populate the astral plane that surrounds us as the atmosphere that we draw our thoughts from in a primarily unconscious and automatic fashion. The celestial field of Astral (star) Light (energies of the sun) as the “unified field” of the collective unconscious, or Akashic field that all human thoughts and deeds are “recorded on” as a mental impression, much like light imprints an image on photographic paper, is the “field of information” as memory of a species that populate human thought in an unconscious manner in exactly the same way instinct works for the animal and plant kingdom.

While many of us have been taught to believe that thought is generated by the brain, it’s not, the brain only acts as a “receiver and transducer” for thought as consciousness that it absorbs from the space around it. Matter only serves as a vehicle or instrument for consciousness to actively express, and has no consciousness of its own or ability to generate consciousness outside of what it acts to attain through resonance. The Akashic field, Astral Plane, unified field of consciousness or information, the collective unconscious, mass consciousness, instinct, scalar waves, quantum wave-function, and dark energy are all terms used to try and describe the same mysterious invisible forces that exist all around us that carry information as memory that’s utilized to produce the consciousness of the soul and body. These are the forces that exist above the level of the personality that act to populate the imagination and provide the means for the perception and ability of the individual to create themselves and their experience of reality.

       Our self-conscious, intellectual mind, the one most think of when we use the term “mind”, is the intellect that has the ability to use the power of thought to deliberately seed the imagination with the reality of that thought. This is the agency of the mind that has supervising authority over itself and dominion over the elemental world through mental powers. All material form is influenced, shaped, and operated using the power of thought as imagined form that stimulates emotion in response to it, which alters the chemistry of the body producing a “unified state” that matches the reality of the thought. The body is an electrical mechanism that’s operated through electrical impulses of various sorts as information in its energetic, vibratory state that stimulate whole biological processes as a synchronized chain of association.

The mind exists as a sphere or field of information, represented by the Monad, as a rotating and pulsating electromagnetic field called a Torus. This field functions through the principle of respiration, drawing in air (intelligence) of the invisible atmosphere, metabolizing and synthesizing it, then exhaling or emanating re-mixed air as an electromagnetic flow of intelligence propelled by a life-force energy that’s self-perpetuating and self-sustaining. This operates in the same way we produce thoughts as memories that create our experiences and provide a form of self-programming as a feed-back loop that’s continuous in nature. This torus as a circular flow of spiraling electromagnetic energy is the force that circulates our blood carrying information as chemical messengers that nourishes and vitalizes the body, in-forming the DNA of the blood and cellular structure simultaneously. Thought as perception and the emotions produced by them “inform” our DNA, altering the electromagnetic field it produces as the means of structuring matter, and is the means by which we transform the body by regenerating it to a new form. Not a form of an entirely different nature, but as a variation or modified version that either upgrades or degrades, depending on what type of though is employed.

Thought, which is also invisible, produces emotion as life-force or magnetic fluid of the Astral plane, both of which exist outside of the body as waves that propagate through a field that acts as a carrier wave, stimulate, produce, transform, regulate, and sustain the chemistry of the body. The body is an electromagnetic mechanism that’s programmed and driven through electrical impulses that appear out of “thin air”, out of nowhere as a form of inspiration, intuition, or emotional charge. Once an electrical impulse is received and absorbed through sympathetic induction, it sets an entire series of biological processes into motion that alter and animate material form. These electrical impulses as vibration have patterns inherent in them as memory that are transmitted and received from both the material plane of emotion and the higher planes of original thought. We’re either electrically running our own mind-body system as an enclosed system through a constant feed-back loop of repetitive thought and emotions, or by taking in and developing the thoughts and emotions of others, or by becoming a passive receptor for thoughts of the higher plane of universal archetypes as the Higher Will.

Receptivity and Will

While many believe their “will” is something that originates in their personality, much like the idea made popular by the movie “The Secret” as the means of manifesting material possessions and circumstances, and there’s certainly no denying that willpower is a part of our inherent equipment, yet the idea of a true “personal will” doesn’t exist. All volition of a seemingly personal nature comes as the synthesis of innumerable interrelated cosmic influences coming together as a focus point “within us” at an exact moment in time. This is why Jesus said “of myself I am nothing”, and that everything came from the Father. The true Will of an original and individual nature only comes from our Higher Self on a higher plane where we act as the receiver and translator for it to produce what appears like a personal creation. We have to still our mind of our habitual thoughts and personal agendas, of always wanting and craving, in order to tune into and receive the intuition of a Higher Power.

The human personality serves only as a vessel for cosmic forces to express through. The more we tame and calm the random unconscious thoughts motivated by passions and desires, the more freely the Primal Will behind all manifestation can find expression through us, which comes as a form of intuition and inspired thought, and is always of a universal nature in the sense that it not only works for our higher good, but for the higher good of everyone involved. It doesn’t operate to satisfy desires born out of our personal illusions of happiness for ourselves, but out of a more universal intention that operates according to the bigger picture involved and by incorporating the will of everyone involved to a congruent means. We can learn from observing our experiences that the true strength of volition is measured to the exact degree of our willingness to “let life” find unobstructed manifestation through us.

Our true Will comes to us from a higher, non-personal source as an insight into or realization around something as a silent thought or inner voice that produces a mental impression that we look through that’s similar to reflection on glass. This type of “willingness” is developed through purposeful concentration as a form of ongoing meditation. We become the vehicle for our Higher Will by keeping our body in a relaxed state, making the mind passive by stilling all active thoughts, becoming fully present in the moment while forming an awareness of the limitless powers inherent in the space around us, while cultivating the progressive freedom to allow those powers to express through us as our primary purpose. This is the practical means of using the mind in the manner it’s intended to be used as the means of exercising dominion over the elements of the material world. When our mind is run by impulses, constant thinking driven by emotions, passions, desires, and urges, the elemental world is governing us and using our will to create through.

The Power of Suggestion to Produce Reality

We must explain and impress upon our subconscious mind over and over through a form of suggestion, that it’s the vehicle for the Universal Will. In order to be effective we have to base those suggestions on reason that’s married to compelling emotions. The subconscious is the creative aspect of the mind in terms of producing material reality, and is the means through which all designs, plans, and inventions come to us as an inner voice or thought, that forms the visual reality of those thoughts in the imagination. All true creativity comes through intuition as the reception of original ideas from an outside source that are comprehended in the mind’s eye by forming a concept or internal representation of them as a possible reality (not born out of personal memory). The subconscious is the means through which cosmic forces of the universal mind enter into our personal field and form the basis for all of our personal creations. The subconscious then reflects the ideas given to it in the imagination as mental impressions where the self-conscious mind becomes aware of them as an inspired thought or form of intuition.

Thought and speech are potent in stimulating and molding the subconscious response. This also produces profound changes in our physical structure because the subconscious is also the consciousness of the body as the body-building and changing agent. Our thoughts as imaginary ideas that elicit an emotional response, literally reprogram the DNA of the body (brain within each cell), transforming us to correspond to the meaning of our thoughts, making us more able to transform and express cosmic forces as personal activities. These cosmic forces exist and are active in the atmosphere (air = the element of intelligence and thought) all around us without our direct awareness because they operate through the subconscious mind, which reflects them in the imagination for the self-conscious mind to become aware of as thoughts that it mistakes for being “self-generated” because they come from within.

       All truth in terms of universal laws and the operations involved in all natural processes can be realized through deepened forms of self-realization. Self-examination will reveal to you in very plain terms that even the least of your personal thoughts and activities are a particular manifestation of a phase of the sum-total of cosmic influences all coming together at a specific point in time as a synchronistic stream of consciousness. Everything we have ever done in the past has led up to this moment in time. All personal thoughts and manifestations come as the result of past memories and actions repeated in a similar fashion in the present. The self-conscious mind which is usually driven by the personality isn’t capable of an original thought, and simply operates in the same fashion as the subconscious mind that births it by replaying memory of some kind. Original thought that’s truly creative and innovative in terms of providing the means for creating new forms of reality comes only through our ability to act as a passive receptor for consciousness from our Higher Self as intuition. It operates by the same principles that govern instinct.

Complete receptivity produced by relaxing the body and stilling the activities of the concrete mind is the secret to the most powerful manifestations of Will. Receptivity can intentionally be produced and increased using language as a formulated suggestion given to the subconscious by the self-conscious as a directed thought. Our normal, everyday thoughts are at once being produced in an impulsive way by our subconscious, which is repetitive in nature and produced out of memory and learned behaviors, while simultaneously acting to program or inform the subconscious as to what to create more of. All “original thought” comes to us as intuition from a higher source that’s outside of our sphere of consciousness that can only be “absorbed” and drawn into our mind when in a passive and receptive state. There’s nothing more powerful and beneficial to our creative ability and will than cultivating the ability to meditate, stilling our thoughts while in a completely relaxed state, and entering into a deep state of concentration as being fully present within our sphere of awareness. In this sense, all magic as true creativity lies in the Will and imagination.

Intuition – Energetic Currents and the Synchronistic Flow of Spiritual Guidance

All of life at the energetic level flows in currents as frequencies. A frequency is formed by all information or ideas of a similar or corresponding nature being interconnected and one leads to another through a chain-of-association. Likewise, we all exist in an energetic frequency that naturally connects and forms a synchronistic flow with everything around us that’s of a similar nature to us. Our thoughts come naturally as a part of the current we exist as a part of, and are what serves to guide and direct our attention onto specific ideas. As we go through life within these currents we only notice, pay attention to, and interact with what’s of the same nature as we are. A frequency forms the “inner nature” of something that serves to animate it with a certain level and quality of consciousness. Our inner nature is a “state” as a condition that’s comprised of a series of fluctuating states as moods that form a range of vibration. This range of vibration as various moods that are all cohesive and coherent in nature together forms a frequency that flows as a current of energy and type of consciousness.

Whenever we concentrate all of our attention onto an idea, becoming fully present with it as an intimate imaginary process, we enter into the flow of that current and a form of spontaneous unfolding starts taking place where the idea takes on a life of its own and begins expanding into deeper aspects as insights of various sorts, and forms a chain-of-association with other ideas and it moves us along a synchronistic path that continuously expands on itself. One idea leads to another idea, which expands on it while leading to another, and next thing you know, after thoroughly investigating each one, you’ve acquired an extensive breath of knowledge around the idea. As an insight it formed around one aspect of a greater idea, a natural connection is made to other ideas of a similar nature that are correlated somehow. This synchronistic flow of ideas will lead to other ideas that you would have never thought of logically or if left to your own means.

Whenever we set an intention of some kind and become inquisitive in regards to it, we set a process into motion by seeking information about it, then give our full attention to it, concentrating on it, taking it in and assimilating it, seeding our mind and imagination with it in a single minded fashion, and we act to prompt the spontaneous unfolding of a dynamic matrix of correlated ideas. As we concentrate fully on an idea, our mind enters into and merges with it, penetrating its depths and we gain new insight into what previously went unknown. As we merge into and become one with an idea spiritually (mentally), we tap into its invisible aspect, and it begins revealing itself to us. Once it begins spontaneously unfolding within us, all we have to do is remain present with it and observe it while relinquishing all mental commentary and need to try and control it. If we try and explain it to ourselves as it’s revealing its hidden nature, we either influence it to match our preconceived notions about it, or we break the flow and it returns to a mundane status. In order to maintain the magical flow of the invisible world becoming knowable, we have to relinquish all thought about it and simply take an attitude of being entertained by it. We have to passively witness it without discrimination or imposing a belief on it.

This is the intuitive process that leads to all true creativity and original thought. The true power of the mind doesn’t come from our ability to generate our own thoughts about things, which are usually rehashing memories of various sorts, but rather from our ability to tune into the ideas that are already present in the ether all around us, and act to absorb them while letting them rise up within our mind and express as our inner imaginings. We tap into existing ideas as a current of information that comes as whole ideas that are connected to other ideas in a synchronistic fashion by resonating with them. All of life exists as a dynamic series or interrelated correspondences and analogies. All ideas originate as metaphors and archetypes, and lend themselves to an infinite number of unique variations based on how they enter into relationship with the individual mind perceiving them.

As we tune ourselves to a frequency by thinking about something in a concentrative, single minded manner, we calibrate ourselves to the frequency of that idea and we begin resonating with it all around us. Through resonance we tap into it energetically, and act as a receptor for it, that’s also an adapter. As we tune into ideas in our mind, which begins as memory regarding the idea, and begin thinking about it based on what we currently know about it, we start a process in motion that then takes on a life of its own. We vibrate at the frequency of the “known aspects” (which who knows if they’re even remotely accurate), and as we access that same idea in the ether (atmosphere) of the greater mind, it’s vibrating at a similar, though different vibration. As we merge with it (sympathetic induction), a process of adaptation and modification takes place where it’s adjusted to the theme of our paradigm, which is necessary in order for us to fully comprehend it, and it transforms into a congruent median between the two, and forms coherence as an altered vibration of both the original and the personal idea. All ideas that exist in Archetypal form are modified to form variations when they serve as an “original idea” at the personal level. All personal creations that came as a form of “down load” or spontaneous vision, are the result of an amalgamation. The blending of two different substances or vibratory frequencies that a combination of both. All reality as we’re capable of knowing it is a perception (creation) of our mind, is subjective in nature and a variable as a unique version produced by the formula of the combination (same principle that governs DNA in creating a new form).

As two ideas come together and merge into each other, forming what we scientifically call an interference pattern (Dyad), where the same idea interferes with itself as another similar idea, the elements they share in common are readily compatible and are amplified, emphasized, and increased, while the ones that contradict each other tend to cancel each other out and disappear (return to a dormant state). This forms a new variation of the same idea as a unique formula or altered vibration. As we merge into Archetypal ideas, or penetrate the surface of partially known ideas, we are constantly upgrading our ability to grasp and comprehend more and more complex aspects of it. Each time the idea is modified through the incorporation of new information, it sets the foundation at a higher level for the next incorporation. The more and more we study and concentrate on ideas, the more capable we become of comprehending those ideas with great depth and diversity. We literally raise our vibration in steady increments through the constant integration of more in-depth information only obtained from entering into the flow of that idea through deep concentrative states.

When we study on a daily or regular basis and dedicate a fair amount of time to the pursuit of knowledge through deep concentration, our study takes on a life of its own as a synchronistic flow that leads us along a path of discovery. As we think, merge into and concentrate our attention, ideas form in our imagination and we begin seeing them from very different perspectives, each of which affords us greater and greater insights into the idea that broadens our ability to perceive it in a fully holistic and unified manner. As we think deeply about something while imagining it as a concept or internal representation of reality, we automatically form associations to other ideas that provide us with a path of continued study as a synchronistic flow. One idea fully realized, naturally leads to another, or in order to fully realize one idea we have to incorporate many interrelated ideas because of the magnitude of its scope and the vastness of its implications and possible applications. Nowhere is this truer than when studying universal laws, which of course is the true basis of all knowledge.

By entering into the flow of life and the ideas that make up life, and pursuing a life of continuous growth and development as the acquisition of knowledge that’s available all around us, we enter into a magical process of intuitive synchronicity. When we use our mind in the way that its designed and meant to be used, and we nurture the fire within us that yearns and longs to “know and create”, and we give our full attention to ideas that we feel a deep and natural connection to, we step into a magical flow that ushers us along through a state of fascination, wonder, and awe. As we merge into and act as the host for living ideas to dance and unfold joyously before us, filled with feelings of reverence and euphoria while watching them, we form a natural love and devotion for the experience they provide us with. When we really begin comprehending the true nature of life, and how even the smallest and seemingly insignificant phenomena is a magical and miraculous event, it fills us with an indescribable form of joy that makes us want to sing and rejoice while marveling at its intoxicating beauty.

Anytime we become fully present, form a purely passive and receptive state of mind while giving our full attention to something, subduing all mental commentary as internal dialogue, and allow an idea to enter into and consume our imagination while calmly witnessing it, allowing it to spontaneously unfold and reveal itself to us in terms of its hidden and invisible nature, we acquire the “knowledge of it” through a purely intuitive manner as the “direct experience of it”. In this way we can absorb things and comprehend them through the experience of them that we can’t explain, which means it doesn’t come as a result of our mental model of self-generated thoughts, but exists as real outside of our model. Through the experience of it, it’s naturally integrated into our model, upgrading it through the incorporation. As we “experience” something that’s not produced by us, and it serves to modify our mental model of the world, it becomes a part of all our basic and natural perceptions. Once we’re able to form a perception of something that we weren’t able to before, we readily and naturally perceive it from that point on. A kind of shift takes place as the modification of our perceptual lens and filters. Once an idea is integrated into our mind, it becomes a permanent part of us and our perception of reality, because our mind is what produces our reality.

The way to spontaneously obtain knowledge of a higher form (universal) and develop our ability to enter into a meditative, trance-like state of passive awareness, is to become present without any distractions or a divided mind, and concentrate solely on an idea in a single minded fashion. Allow the idea to rise up in your imagination while subduing all resistance or mental commentary and narrative, let go of all needs and attachments regarding the idea (beliefs), and start the flow by thinking about it in regards to what you currently know. Feel yourself enter into the magnetic current of the idea as merging with and into it, and allow it to take on a life of its own, being and doing whatever it wants to be and do, and simply observe it from a passive and fully relaxed state. Don’t try to change it or need it to be something specific, just let it reveal itself to you in its own terms while allowing a natural chain-of-association to take place as a dynamic series of interrelated ideas of the same nature. Give yourself over to be a neutral and free-flowing channel for the idea to express through. Then as you begin slowly breaking your concentration and “coming back” to a mentally active state, think about it as a way of “retaining it”. Just as moving from a dream state to awakened one, as we change states we often “forget” or have trouble remembering what we comprehended about that idea while in that state. I usually write it down, draw, and develop it a bit as a way of retaining it with full awareness so I can apply it somehow in my life to create by way of it.
