Becoming Self-Aware and Learning how to resolve your own Issues

One of the most primary ways we have of becoming aware of our own unconscious tendencies formed through our formative conditioning is by realizing that the outer world (and other people) exist in polarity with us and are always acting to show us parts of our self that can be difficult for us to see normally. The outer world is always acting to stimulate us internally and make certain parts of us active and expressive. As we’re stimulated by things, it provides us with a kind of mirror into the hidden aspects of our own psyche. Whatever we exist in polarity with as “shared aspects”, causes a natural reaction in us in response to them. As we react, we take on the same nature as whatever it is we’re reacting to. We take on the same qualities, emotions, and behaviors. As these qualities and ways of being are activated and brought out in us, it provides us with the opportunity to see what they are.

 The primary decision and attitude necessary to begin cultivating deeper forms of self-awareness, is the honest decision to do so, while simultaneously cultivating the ability to step outside of your own reactions and look at them from an objective and detached perspective. Once a reaction is triggered in us, we can remove our attention from what’s causing it and turn it inward instead. As we turn inward and begin observing the nature of our own reaction, we can clearly see “who we become” in relation with it. We can see what our own internal dialogue is and what type of script begins playing out in our mind. If we remain detached from it while simply observing it, we can see what lives inside of us that we’re often not fully aware of. We can see what it is we typically repress and deny about ourselves, while also recognizing that we become the “same as” as whatever it is we’re reacting to, and act to participate in playing out a certain type of dynamic. We become the same type of person and take on the same type of behaviors.

One of the fundamental principles of the universe is “cause and effect”. All cause as an action, stimulates and produces an equal or greater reaction of the same nature and kind. Like always serves to beget more of what’s like it. This idea can also be understood as the Law of Vibration, which basically demonstrates that whatever frequency something vibrates at, which transmits a form of signal, moves through and into physical forms and vibrates that same frequency in them. As it awakens and makes the same quality active by resonating with it, the two frequencies of a similar nature begin vibrating in harmony, ultimately forming coherence as an energetic unification. Once unified energetically, a coherent pattern is formed as an interactive dynamic that expresses to form a joint reality comprised of the qualities they share in common.

All of the unconscious content that exists in us without our direct awareness of it is simultaneously being projected onto the environment, allowing us to witness it with our conscious mind. But because we’ve repressed it and lost memory of it, we don’t realize it’s showing us unknown aspects of ourselves. The outer is always a projection as a mirror image of the inner that’s acting to produce it as our perception. A mirror image is an opposite reflection of an image. All of reality is composed of complementary opposites as masculine (outer) and feminine (inner) aspects of the same thing that act to stimulate each other. The inner acts to receive the stimulus of the outer, calling forth the same quality as a state of consciousness, and together produce an offspring as a reality. While we tend to think that “reality” is something that exists around and outside of us, it’s actually formed as a “field of information” that’s constantly being reformed into variations by the mind perceiving it. The inner and outer are extensions of each other as a polar and complementary relationship.

If you allow yourself to notice, you’ll realize that only certain people, attitudes, and behaviors cause a distinct reaction in you. Other people and activities are going on around you all the time that you don’t particularly even notice, let alone react to. When you do notice them for some reason, you view them in a neutral and detached manner that’s a kind of objective evaluation where you remain calm inside the whole time, and basically unaffected. This is because the attitude and traits they’re displaying are a part of our own awareness and not something that you’ve denied and repressed in yourself. They’re not a part of your conditioned and unresolved issues, so to speak. By realizing this, we’re provided with a powerful tool for self-healing and personal growth.

 The Practice of Self-Awareness

Begin by making the decision to unearth your own unconscious content, and set the intention to begin developing the means necessary to become self-aware. Anytime you get an emotional charge from someone or something, and you go into an instant reaction, realize what’s happening while refraining from reacting. As you refrain from reacting, remove your attention from whatever is causing the reaction, and turn it inward instead. Simply become aware of what’s happening inside of you. Notice what the reactive thoughts are, and what emotion is associated with it. Notice the dialogue that begins passionately playing out in your mind automatically. What story, script, or narrative starts running in relation to it. What behaviors are you prompted to go into seemingly without the ability to control them outright?

As you allow the unconscious content to surface and begin actively expressing, resist the tendency to justify your “right” to feel and act that way. Don’t fool yourself with the idea that you’re simply “giving them back their own medicine”, or “giving them what they deserve”. If you’re feeling hurt, just allow yourself to notice the urge to hurt them back in the same way, while continuing to allow the feelings to fully surface and play out in your mind while you “watch them”. Then allow yourself to notice who you become because of the story playing out in your mind. What memory as an imagined reality rises up within you that becomes the means for interpreting the current reality to mean the same thing as the past. What role do you take on in your own story about things?

If you have trouble doing this and keep going back to focusing on the other person, just catch yourself and return your attention inward. Focus exclusively on the internal processes the external stimulus set into motion within you. Don’t judge yourself in any way, or make yourself wrong, and remain as detached from it as possible. Remove yourself from “within the experience”, and reside in awareness outside where you’re watching it like a movie, where you’re not the main star, but simply one of the characters playing a role in a larger dynamic. Don’t try to control what’s happening within or change it somehow, just observe it as another person would.

Allow yourself to notice that anytime you’re reacting, you become like the person you’re reacting to. You take on the same emotions, attitude, and behaviors, and you begin cooperatively participating in creating the same type of reality as a joint experience. As you begin awakening to how it is that you’re always being shaped and determined by other people through the activation of your own unconscious content, and that every reaction is providing you with a mirror that’s reflecting back to you aspects of yourself that you’re unaware of, you can begin gaining awareness around the true nature of things.

Through the realization that’s obtained through the practice of observing your own mind and thoughts, you bring what’s operating to unconsciously in your life life into conscious awareness, where it’s resolved through the awareness itself and no longer acts to control you. The more and more you do this, the less reactive you become, and other people and events no longer act “on you” in an unconscious manner to control and determine you. As we become aware of what’s serving to create us through an unconscious state, we begin healing ourselves and cultivating a state of inner peace where we begin making conscious decisions in a calm and calculated manner as to “who we’re going to be” in any situation. As we let go of our tendency to create while in an unconscious state, we can choose what qualities we employ instead and begin creating our self and our life in an intentional and beneficial manner.

Hypnosis – How it Works, and Why it’s so Effective

The term “hypnosis” refers to a state commonly called “trance”, which is where the body is in a fully relaxed state while attention is fixated on an idea. The conscious – thinking by talking- aspect of the mind, which is normally dominant in terms of awareness and directed attention, is subdued and pacified, and the subconscious mind becomes dominant and unguarded and readily accessible to conceive of suggestion as “seeded ideas” from the will. Because the will is a natural function of the conscious mind, which is always directing the subconscious through thought and internal dialogue is inactive, the will of another serves to give intentional suggestions to the subconscious instead, which is why deep forms of hypnosis requires a hypnotist or practitioner to perform.

Yet the state of hypnosis itself is very natural to us and is the natural relationship between the conscious and subconscious minds, as well as the higher mind of the Soul. Anytime we passively engage in some idea or activity, we enter into a trance-like state, and readily take in the suggestions being given to us, where we turn them into an inner reality by continuing to think about them. An idea introduced into the mind is turned into a full-fledged reality in 14 to 17 seconds. As we begin thinking about something, we internalize and imagine it, build it into a believable reality as a possibility, and in doing so, act to program ourselves with that idea. Many people believe “programming” is something that requires an intentional act or actual process, when in fact, we’re constantly programming ourselves with the reality of our own imagined thoughts.

The biggest difference between hypnosis and meditation, which can be virtually identical, is that hypnosis has a purpose and is designed as a means to accomplish a desired goal or end result, whereas meditation takes place anytime we become present, remove our attention from distractions, and enter into a concentrative, single-minded state. Hypnosis tends to go deeper into the actual trance state because its purpose is to bypass the critical mind and work directly on and with the subconscious mind, which is the creative powerhouse of the body and material plane, and the aspect of the mind that turns an idea into a reality as the experience of it. All perception, feelings, emotions, memories, and behaviors or actions are naturally produced by the subconscious. So it’s here that all physical change takes place.

       The subconscious is synonymous with the DNA of the body’s cellular structure, as they operate according to the same principle to perform a unified process and analogous functions. By reprogramming or re-engineering the subconscious mind, we simultaneously re-inform the DNA of our cellular structure, determining how it forms new sequences as relationships. In this manner, the conscious, subconscious, and DNA of the body are designed to function as a singular unit to self-create and create the reality it exists in as a mental projection. But unfortunately, most have lost touch completely with how their own mind-body system works, and their conscious mind is constantly being consumed by the will of others and the mindless distractions that bombard us as a part of our daily reality, and it’s hardly even aware of its own subconscious aspect, let alone its ability to willfully direct it through its own thoughts and intentions.

The subconscious differs from the conscious in terms of the language they speak, which has become another barrier in the communication process. The conscious mind is intellectually oriented and thinks in words and through thought as internal dialogue that are somewhat abstract in nature, whereas the subconscious, which is intuitive and experiential in nature, thinks in pictures and images. The conscious mind is hopelessly distracted and lost in time (past, future, yesterday, tomorrow), thinking in terms of memories of the past that are projected into the future, whereas the subconscious is always present in the moment, and dealing with and producing what’s actually happening. The conscious mind tends to think and occupy itself mostly others, and entertains itself with theory, while the subconscious “is” body awareness, feeling oriented, emotionally driven, and is what produces all of our natural behaviors and tendencies as our personality, affording us the ability to busy ourselves thinking and dreaming about things that aren’t real.

So when we move from dealing with the conscious to the subconscious, we use words only to direct attention and fixate the subconscious on an idea while directing it through an imaginary process, which acts much like a metaphor, analogy, or allegory. The key component of the subconscious is it operates in a natural and spontaneous manner by way of law, and recognizes the principles being conveyed in any symbolic idea, which is what allows it to use those principles to create in numerous situations of a similar nature. It’s instinctual in nature, and intuitively understands the meaning and message inherent in ideas, and the fact that it’s the attributes and characteristics of the internal nature that form objects and determine how they behave. It understands and connects to the inner nature of things (feelings and emotions), and sees physical attributes as properties that can be used to perform similar operations under numerous circumstances to produce the same result or outcome.

       So whenever we’re working with the subconscious, which is what hypnosis is all about, we fix the attention of the subconscious onto an idea, and walk it through an imaginary process as the reality or actual experience of the change we want it to produce. We create it not as a theoretical set of instructions that only require a concept, but as a virtual reality as if it’s happening, or has already happened and we’re having the experience of it. Because the subconscious doesn’t have a will of its own, it requires a “memory” to use as a “blueprint” and instructions for manifesting a reality as a physical state or condition. Words are only used as a guide of what’s to be imagined in sensory terms. The experience is created as feeling sensations (what  you’re seeing, hearing, touching or feeling, smelling, tasting, telling yourself, etc.) that creates an inner experience that invokes a corresponding emotion, which is the alteration of the chemistry of the body through hormones, to match or be the result of the experience. As we alter the chemistry of our body through the experience created, we re-inform it with chemical messengers, adjusting its state and how it functions, and what it manifests as a result.

The DNA of the body, which is predominately regulated and operated by the subconscious, is programmed through new information that cause it to form new sequences, which in turn regenerate and manifest in new ways. DNA is literally transformed through our perceptions, thoughts, and experiences, and operates like the subconscious out of memory. By creating new memories through virtual experiences, we give both our subconscious and DNA (cellular mind and brain) new patterns to use to produce physical reality out of. All forms of manifestation, whether actual and physical, or mental as imaginary thought processes, are formed out of memory of some form. We’re always creating the present out of memories of the past by thinking the same “type” of thoughts as replaying memories over and over. A dynamic matrix of memories form our mental paradigm (model) and the perceptual lens that we use to perceive, interpret, form our experiences, and create more realities of the same nature.

In order to change or transform what has manifest, we need to either transform an existing memory into a new version, or erase it altogether while replacing it with a new one. We have to re-inform the subconscious and DNA by giving it a new pattern and process as a blueprint for creating more of the same type of realities. This blueprint has to be in the form of an experience of reality. It has to be intuitive in nature. It can’t be given as a dry set of intellectual instructions that lack reasoning and viability. For this reason, a metaphorical process has to be vividly imagined as an actual experience that produces a feeling sensation that stimulates an emotional response. All reality as a transformation or creation comes through our ability to translate an idea into an emotion. Emotion “is” the chemical equivalent of the idea as hormonal messengers, and is what actually adjusts the “state of the body” as a unified whole to manifest the physical equivalent.

All hypnotic processes, which are simply entering into a passive state while taking in whatever suggestion is being given and imagining it as an inner reality, are designed to direct the subconscious mind to produce an imaginary experience that it takes as being real (it doesn’t know the difference between imagined and real, because they’re both produced the same way) that provides it with a new memory as a pattern and biological process for manifesting as a corresponding reality. The emotion produced by the experience is the key to manifesting and is what determines the nature of the manifestation in terms of its meaning. All behaviors and actions are emotionally driven. It’s not emotion in the generic sense of generalizations such as happy, joyous, sad, and so on, but the emotion one would feel at the accomplishment of the goal being created as the reality and experience of it, and what it “means” as a result.

Meaning is the core and common denominator between haphazard creations and intentional creations. It’s not just what manifests that’s important, but the fact that you “caused it” to manifest using your mind-body system in a strategic manner. That’s an emotion hard to describe or categorize in the conventional sense because it brings a dynamic series of realizations that open up new doors into the true power of your own will and mind to create yourself and your life in an intentional and deliberate way. The experience of actual empowerment is quite different than contemplating the idea from a dissociated and theoretical position. Once you’re able to produce results, you know it works in a factual manner, and no longer requires a belief in it.

Hypnosis, like meditation and healing, is not something that’s done “for you” or “to you”, but is something you do yourself. All the practitioner does is lead you through the process of entering into a hypnotic state by following their directives, then lead you through the suggestions you’ve decided on and given them to give you while in a receptive state. Contrary to popular (uneducated) belief, you can’t be made to do something that goes against your “values” (will) while in a hypnotic trance, no matter how deep it is. We are only ever capable of doing what’s in “our nature” to do, even when in our subconscious mind and unguarded by our conscious mind, which forms the core of our personality. The minute an idea is suggested that goes against our values, the conscious mind kicks in and engages and begins the process of discrimination and evaluation, and acts to reject the suggestion, often breaking the hypnotic state.

In a like manner, only changes and creations that we have honestly decided on can be “installed” successfully with permanent results. A decision comes as a balance between both the conscious and subconscious, between intention as an idea, and the feelings, emotions, and memories regarding it. The subconscious is the womb of the conscious, willful, decision making mind. If we’re still wavering on an idea, still harbor a desire for it somehow or an emotional connection to it, still debating and negotiating it, then the hypnotic process probably won’t be successful as a way of “making the decision for us”. The subconscious has no will of its own, and even while given a program in a receptive state, can be vetoed by the conscious will, which will override it and simply re-inject the willed decision as the pattern for the subconscious to use to create. Our own will always overrules the will of another when used with awareness.

       The will provides the “seed” (masculine) that the subconscious conceives of (feminine) and grows into a physical form. So before hypnosis is used as the method for impregnating the subconscious, a firm decision has to be made and a clear intention set as to what the subconscious will be instructed to create. And again, care must be taken to produce the appropriate emotional response to how the idea is created, because the emotion is the formative element, and is what also acts to connect us with the elements of the manifest reality in everything outside of us necessary to produce it as an outer experience of reality. Feeling (sensation) and emotion (chemistry), both of which are complementary opposites of the “heart center” are what connects us to our environment and others as the unified subconscious (Collective Unconscious) we share with all of Nature. So always bear this formula in mind in everything you do. It’s the translation of an idea into a feeling and into an emotion that determines what actually manifests. Whatever manifests will be an expression of the emotion and serve to produce more of it.

       The other interesting thing about working with the subconscious mind is that changes that are produced often occur without direct awareness. We often produce the change without realizing it. This sounds strange when you first think about it, but you have to keep in mind that what we call the “unconscious” is exactly that. It operates continuously in our life without any direct awareness of it. In fact, many have no real awareness of their subconscious mind in general, and don’t even know what it is for sure. Because both the subconscious and conscious mind works out of memory, the conscious mind doesn’t remember what’s been changed. It no longer accesses memory in the subtle sense of everyday awareness and present mind-set, and only remembers when looking back (being directed to look back), and even then, can feel a sense of being outside of or dissociated from the memory.

This is how the subconscious works and the true meaning of “personal transformation”, in the sense that once you learn how to operate your own mind-body system, and the fact that your higher conscious and personal conscious can act in a willful and creative manner to reprogram the subconscious mind, giving it new memories, where you can literally become a different person by reshaping your personality and identity. You can become who you choose to be instead of unconsciously ending up the way you are due to conditioning.

       As children, only our subconscious is active and creative and we are readily conditioned by the will of others, and become the person as an adult of our conditioning. Yet once we become adults and our self-conscious mind is fully developed and active, we have the ability to use our will to condition ourselves to become the way we choose to be. Self-hypnosis as a form of guided meditation is always going on as the natural relationship between the conscious and subconscious mind through our own imagined thoughts and the emotional states they produce, and the emotions we react to in others. The subconscious mind acts to produce the “nature” out of which the conscious mind thinks and perceives, and then through its thoughts and perceptions as a form of “witnessing” the creation of the subconscious as an outer reality, acts to reinforce the subconscious mind through a form of feedback loop. Words produce images as the meaning of the words that we picture in our mind as a reality, and then we have an emotional response to our own thoughts. In this way we are constantly acting on ourselves to program ourselves with the reality of our thoughts.

What we call hypnosis is the most natural state we exist in, and is always a form of “self-hypnosis” whether we’re doing it to ourselves or being guided through it by another, we’re still the ones “doing it” by how we use our imagined thoughts to regulate and produce the emotional chemistry of our body. When we exist in a passive state, never exerting ourselves, or using our will to think for ourselves and make our own decisions, we become a receptacle for the will of others. We readily take in the ideas of others without discriminating or evaluating them, allow them to take hold by thinking about them, and act to manifest the reality of their will instead of our own. When we engage in passive forms of entertainment or information delivered through the media that we don’t challenge in any way, we become programmed with those ideas and participate in a cooperative manner to co-create the reality they imply. This is the most basic form of mass hypnosis that’s taking place all the time and keeps us all willingly creating a joint reality.

Once we realize and understand fully how this process works, we can take control of it and utilize it in an intentional manner to self-create. We can remain in an active state when engaging with others and media of any form and actively use discretion as to what we expose ourselves to and willingly take in and start thinking about as a way of forming it into an inner reality that becomes a part of our normal thought process and outer reality. We can learn how to direct our own thoughts and imagining producing the reality we want and choose to produce rather than engaging in the mass programming of society and others. Hypnosis simply provides us with the process for programming our subconscious using our conscious mind, and creating ourselves and our life in a deliberate manner as a result. We are not only fully responsible for whom we become, but we have the inherent tools and means for doing it. We simply have to become aware of it and learn how to use them in an intentional manner as the means of self-creating.

DNA and Self-Creation – Programming our Biocomputer through Linguistics, Imagined Thoughts, and Meaning

The term linguistics as it’s used here, refers to language and thoughts which both have an optical and acoustical component. Words form images in the imagination as the meaning of the words. As we think and speak, we’re steadily forming the reality that the words represent in our imagination. In this sense, to hear is to simultaneously see, and to see is to simultaneously hear. As we observe an actual or imagined and well-formed image, we simultaneously produce a mental narrative that describes and explains it to ourselves in a way that gives it meaning. The meaning we give it forms the basis for the story we tell ourselves about it as a way of making sense of it. While we have a tendency to believe that the words themselves and the images they produce as an experience of the reality indicated by the words “is” the “programming” factor itself, in reality, it’s what it “means” that’s the actual programming.

Meaning, like everything else, is three-fold in nature and creates simultaneously on three corresponding and correlating levels. Meaning is purely a product of the individual mind, and whatever meaning something has for us, simultaneously means something about other people, the way the world is, and about “us” in relationship to it as the creator of it. Whatever story we tell ourselves about “the way things are”, we are simultaneously creating ourselves by way of that same story. Our story about things is what unifies all levels and scales of reality to be about the same thing. The DNA of our body, which operates according to the same principles as our mind (both subconscious and conscious), isn’t programmed in the literal sense of our verbal thoughts or by the imagined realities produced by our thoughts, but rather by the “self-creative” component of the “meaning” our self-produced realities have for us.

The Nature of Thought

Thought is formed in the mind’s eye as an image, scenario, or reality that simultaneously forms a narrative that assigns meaning to the image by telling a story about it. Likewise, words spoken outwardly form mental images of the meaning of the words in the mind of others, and is a basic way of creating the same mindset as a “version of reality” in everyone around us. Thought and the image of the thought is a two-way process as the unification of both sound and vision as being a part of the same idea. This process is illustrated by the 3 upper chakras of the human energy system where an idea is received in its whole form (unified) as a transmission, that then forms an image in the minds-eye that’s accompanied by verbal thoughts, which, when spoken outwardly, organize the 4 Elements of the lower plane (4 lower chakras) to produce a corresponding reality as an experience of the thought.

On the higher, unformed plane of information in its potential state, words are spoken that form images as the primary means of calling forth reality. On the material-created plane of forms, visual images provoke thought processes in regards to them. Thought is comprised of a dual action of words and images that together form meaning as reason. From a purely creative and energetic perspective, we are constantly creating ourselves and our life experiences through our own imagined thoughts and what we talk about with others. As we speak, we call forth the reality of our thoughts in both our mind and the mind of others, and it becomes a template for co-creating the same reality as a joint venture.

All reality as we know it exists as a unified field where different ideas are being played out on multiple scales in a correlated and interdependent fashion. While the material world appears to operate in a separate, individual, and dualistic manner, at the energetic level, which is the field of information as a dynamic matrix and virtual substratum that “in-forms” and gives rise to the entire material plane as a hologram, everything operates as “One”. Reality exists fundamentally as a cohesive and coherent whole. The energetic (spiritual) level exists outside of space and time as a larger pattern made up of separate parts that all contain the information of the whole, and communicate in an “instant fashion” to the entire organism at once. It doesn’t operate by the laws governing the speed of sound or light, which requires a “pathway of travel” between organisms, but rather through the laws governing “entanglement” as an instantaneous function between organisms of the same nature. This is because what we perceive as being separate and apart from each other, are actually a holistic, unified, single organism. Our mind (electromagnetic field surrounding and permeating our body), brain, nervous system, heart, and the DNA in every cell within the body are all receiving signals and being “informed” at the same time in the energetic sense, and all morph and behave as a harmonious and spontaneous movement.

The process of receiving, interpreting and processing, and transmitting information, works as a two way street, where we are both affected and constantly being influenced by the frequencies outside of ourselves being received by our mind and DNA, and by the thoughts generated internally as the interpretation and modulation of what’s received. As we “reinterpret information” giving it new meaning based on context, we simultaneously transmit it, influencing the outer, unified field of mass consciousness. We are both being influenced by everyone and everything around us, and the one doing the influencing. DNA and the mind can also cause what we call “disturbing patterns” in the vacuum (greater unified field) that produce what we refer to as “wormholes”.

A wormhole is a metaphor for describing the idea of a tunnel between entirely different areas of space through which information can be transmitted outside of space and time in an instant fashion. It operates according to subtle (energetic without material substance) laws, rather than gross laws which require a material pathway as an explanation. Information is transferred instantaneously through entanglement, which is based on resonance, which connects and informs us by the same frequency no matter how great the distance between us appears to be, because the distance is an illusion only perceivable from the perspective of being within space and time. Subtle energy exists “outside of space and time”, as whole dimensions based on frequency. We can connect to that same frequency and receive and transmit information as holographic language anywhere in the universe and between higher and lower dimensions that are of the same frequency as we are. We are always being informed by the same frequency, regardless of its location, because the matrix is singular in nature.

The Nature of DNA as a Biocomputer

DNA, which is an intelligent system, is always attracting and interpreting information that appears in our conscious as thoughts and realizations, and is received fluently whenever we’re in a relaxed state. Both the subconscious mind and DNA are passive and receptive in nature, and is “programmed” by suggestion as ideas that are readily taken in, thought about and formed as realities in the imagination, producing an inner experience of them, that become the memory as a blueprint for connecting with and creating a corresponding reality outwardly. Thoughts that are dwelled in with intensity and imagined as actual experiences, form an electromagnetic field as a holographic blueprint that both attracts and organizes information in such a way that it constructs an equivalent physical form, as well as an entire complementary reality as the same pattern played out on a larger scale that’s more complex and inclusive in nature.

By relaxing our body and mind, eliminating all active thoughts and freeing our imagination, while being seeded with a suggestion that’s imagined as a form of scenario that constructs it as a sensory and emotional experience, we literally “re-inform” our mind and body through our perception of its reality. This is naturally done through various forms of meditation, auto-suggestion, self-hypnosis, passive engagement in entertainment, formative education and conditioning, video games that replicate experience, relationships as an interaction, media and advertising, and of course, the most fundamental way is through our own thoughts as internal dialogue which is always talking to ourselves.

We can “tune into” higher frequencies and dimensions and act as a receiver for new types of information as a form of hyper-communication. We can only transform and evolve our current mental and physical condition by embodying and employing new forms of information that modulates our paradigm and changes our state, producing a new physical equivalent. Whenever our mind is active, especially from anxiety or stress of some sort, and filled with constant repetitive thoughts as worrying and anticipating the future as the reality of our thoughts, or a hyperactive intellect, it prevents hyper-communication as an intuitive flow of information, or it distorts the information received in a fluid way by how it “reinterprets it” that makes it useless or even damaging and destructive in some way. By reducing the anxious activity of compulsive thoughts, we can access and utilize higher knowledge in a constructive and creative way.

Putting it all Together      

Vibration as thought forms patterns as holographic realities that vibrate at certain frequencies. Sound, as words spoken both internally and externally, has dual properties and forms an electromagnetic field as a holographic image of the pattern inherent in the word. Electromagnetic fields are self-organizing and self-perpetuating fields of information that vibrate at a certain frequency, and by resonating with that same frequency in everything else, re-informs the outer environment as a greater whole to be of the same pattern as a “type of reality” as the inner. As we resonate with the same frequency in everything around us, activating the same aspects, while deactivating others through a process of adaptation and modification, we form our outer reality to be of the same nature in terms of meaning, as our inner reality.

Meaning is the unification of word and image as an experience or story that’s told by living it. What we see is based on what we think, which is based on the meaning and significance we’re programmed with as a vibratory frequency that has a thematic pattern inherent in it. We can only truly “see” and perceive in the outer world and our inner imagination what matches our thoughts as beliefs about it, or what our thoughts naturally act to create. Thought and form are two aspects of the same thing that we use to create ourselves by way of the reality that arises out of them and the activities that ensue from them.

Our DNA is constantly being programmed or informed by our thoughts and perceptions (and those of others), not so much in the literal sense of producing the physical equivalent as a correspondence to them, but rather in terms of the meaning they have as our “experience” of them and reason for thinking them. The DNA of our body and the mind of our soul operate out of the same principles and act as a vibratory tuner, receiver, transducer and interpreter, and transmitter of vibratory (unformed) information. It acts as a channel and biocomputer for translating an idea (archetype) in its potential state (frequency) into an actual material reality as an experience of it that becomes a memory.

The memory itself isn’t formed out of the actual events themselves, but rather the emotional impact and meaning they had for us that formed the story we began telling ourselves about things as a result of them. The meaning and reason for something provides us with a kind of dynamic theme that we use to shape all of our future experiences to be of the same nature, or to keep telling the same “type of story” that gives us more of the same type of feeling. No matter what happens, we interpret it to make it mean what we need it to mean in order to keep telling ourselves the same story. It’s the meaning things have for us as the feeling we get from the experience, whether real or imagined, that serves as the “programming” that “creates us” in a unified manner, as a body, soul, and spirit, through the “memory” that’s created out of it or used to produce it.

Conscious Programming – “The Art of Self-Creation”

centering The conscious mind has the ability to program the subconscious mind, yet we have to first realize that they actually speak (work by) different languages. The conscious mind is abstract and thinks in terms of verbal language as words that lack behavior as actualizing, whereas the subconscious mind is experiential and emotional in nature and speaks in terms of pictures and sensory images as life-like realities that mimic actual memories. The conscious mind programs the subconscious (body awareness) through the imagination as an inner vision that transforms an abstract idea into a conceptualized reality. The imagination as the mind’s eye takes a basic idea, and through the process of applying it to a specific situation or set of circumstances, reinterprets it by personalizing it. We imagine it “as if” we were actually experiencing it as a real life situation. This creates the idea as a living pattern equivalent to a memory, which the subconscious uses to produce behavior that “acts out” the same scenario as a real life experience.   By imagining the desired idea as a reality, we not only create a pattern for application, but also create it as a believable possibility that we simultaneously identify with through the enactment. This creates the desired reality as an inner reality that the subconscious superimposes on the outer reality, organizing and reinterpreting it accordingly. The mind constructs realities by how it composes ideas to give them meaning. The meaning we give an idea determines how we experience it. Meaning shapes experience. It takes the imagined reality as an actual experience, which integrates and incorporates it through an accumulative effect that modifies the current paradigm as a system of beliefs based on memory (living realities) as a unification of the physical with the spiritual that provides a new template for generating thematic realities as analogous correspondences. It creates experiences that are of the same nature as a form of theme. universal We take an abstract idea as a universal theme, and create an inner reality as a template that produces a frequency that’s used to magnetize and organize the outer reality as being of a similar nature. It won’t be exactly the same as the inner imagining, because it can only use elements in the immediate environment that are of the same frequency and therefore lend themselves to telling the same type of story. The outer experience will be of the same nature and basic idea of the imagined reality based on what’s available in the immediate environment that can be used to orchestrate the experience as a congruent theme.   Ideas, as feeling experiences, represent a vibratory frequency that attracts what is of the same nature and therefore has the same inherent tendencies that can be used to express the same idea as a joint reality. Whatever is of a different frequency, likewise, is simultaneously repelled. We only “see” ourselves (what matches our paradigm) in others and our environment, even though many other possibilities coexist within the same space and time. What is of the same nature as us we not only notice and give attention to (it stands out), we simultaneously allow to enter into us (energetic sympathy), stimulating an inner reaction (resonance) to it as a result. This is what we refer to as chemistry that produces a natural interaction based on an affinity of sorts. unity When we allow ideas to readily and willingly be introduced into our mind, and take hold by thinking about them, we are allowing ourselves to be “programmed” by others or an external source. We then become subject to it because it acts to “tune us” to the same vibratory frequency as a joint reality that we create inward using our own mind. We allow ourselves to be determined – created – by outside forces. This is the result of the subconscious and passive aspect of the mind as our animalistic (body) nature that can be readily trained and domesticated by outside influences that we align with and allow to control us. We are influenced by another mind that imposes a direct influence on us, dominates by introducing an active force as an idea that’s willingly accepted by our passive and receptive mind, that controls us by absorbing and commanding our will.   When we give our will to the service of another by conforming to them, they act to control us and determine our behavior, which also shapes our identity accordingly. We enter into a sympathetic relationship with them, and through suggestion that acts to modify and manipulate our inner reality, we respond to them in a very predictable way. They train us to behave in a certain way by how they interact with us. Through the emotional quality of their communication, which acts as the hook for seating ideas in the imagination, allowing them to take hold long enough to develop them into personal realities by thinking about them in a compulsive manner. They “give us” emotional thoughts that are theirs, and we adopt them and then act to develop them as our own. This forms the basis of what we refer to as the “group mind” which is ultimately a form of subliminal mind entrainment designed to train people to certain types of behavior that they mistaken for their own.   Once we understand how we use our mind to self-create by creating internal realities that become the living patterns for outer realities of the same nature, we can withdraw our mental and emotional power from the group mind, and use our imagination to self-create in unique and individual ways instead. We can program our own mind and body by creating inner experiences of our desired reality, then enhancing them with sensory details, while infusing them with very positive emotions that magnetize them by making them compelling. Positive attracts and grows, negative repels and diminishes. To “become” by growing ourselves, is achieved through positive and active means, while allowing our negative, self-sabotaging aspects to fall away and subside, because we no longer keep them alive in our imagination. Fill your mind constantly with what you desire to experience and how you want to feel as a result. Sense yourself in very desirable ways that will shape your identity accordingly and will form your character as the means of bringing ideas into physical form as experiences that are self-perpetuated and performed by you!   Dr. Linda Gadbois Transformational Coaching Personal Transformation Health and Well-Being   About the author: Dr. Linda is a Spiritual Scientist and scholar of Hermetic Sciences and Ancient Wisdom traditions.

Becoming more Conscious: Learning how to Listen to your Body

man in sphere
As a society, we’ve been trained to dwell in a vast sea of distracted thoughts and engage in a random, scattered and often non-congruent form of thinking as a part of our daily communications with others. We live the greater part of our life without ever being truly present within ourselves and our immediate outer reality. We constantly look to other people’s opinions and experiences with things and adopt them as our own, often with complete trust that lacks the only form of validation there actually is, knowledge that comes to us through experience that brings self-realization. The only way we can truly know if something is “true” is through the experience of it. To have “knowledge of” something, is to be intimate with it as being the “same thing”.

 
Our body is always in the process of communicating with us and giving us a direct form of feedback. It’s always responding to the energy around us and how it feels, to what we just ate and the manner in which we ate it, and to what we’re dwelling in as the thoughts that prevent us from being self-aware, and keep us instead always residing in the detached space just outside of our body, and remain, for the most part, completely unaware of how we’re feeling. Yet our body is always in the process of interacting with the world around us in numerous ways, and is always providing us with immediate feedback, all we have to do is learn to calm our mind, focus our attention inward, and become aware of how we feel at any given moment.

 
While our body is most responsive to our own thoughts and imaginings, which actually act as a natural form of self-programming, it’s also giving us a constant form of feedback on the energy that exists in places, being radiated by the people around us, about the emotional state and underlying agenda’s of those we’re interacting with, the quality of the air we’re breathing, the food we just ate, and so on. Our body, which is synonymous with our subconscious mind, is a lot like a bio-electric antenna that’s always in the process of broadcasting, receiving, and processing information that exists all around us that we’re always interacting and exchanging energy with at the subtle level that lies just beneath our normal awareness.

 
The mind is the electromagnetic field that surrounds, envelops, and somewhat penetrates the body, shaped like a large revolving sphere of energy that pulsates in a rhythmic flow much like breathing. It unfolds and extends out into your immediate environment and forms resonance (magnetizes) with whatever is of the same vibratory frequency (within an acceptable range) or inner nature as we are, magnetizing and attaching it, then enfolding and bringing the information back into the  core of our body where it’s “sensed” and felt. The complementary aspects of the information being received that can be readily conformed to our existing model are synthesized into our overall system, altering it slightly (or sometimes drastically), shifting our frequency as an adjustment or modification, which becomes a new emanation of the slightly altered frequency. Likewise, any obsolete information is then discharged or pulsated outwards, using some to magnetize new information while discharging others, releasing it to be recycled. This constant flow and exchange is how the inner atmosphere of the body is always being adjusted to match the outer atmosphere as the most basic function of evolution.

This same process of digestion and metabolism that the physical world is always undergoing, also governs the energetic realm of the mind that’s largely thought driven. Just as the molecules of the air we breathe becomes the molecules we use to build our body at the cellular level, which is in a constant state of regeneration. The energy as consciousness that exists all around us, is being magnetically digested and assimilated to regenerate our energetic matrix as our mental paradigm. This usually happens without our awareness because it’s subtle and gradual in nature and comes more as “feelings” that have an emotional quality to them, and when taken on, awaken those same emotions in us, creating the ideal conditions for their complementary thought-forms. Sometimes this is so subtle that we don’t readily recognize it, and at other times it’s quite pronounced and produces an emotional reaction that can be quite volatile.

 
The other reason it can seem so subtle that it goes unrecognized is because many people are consumed with the thoughts running through their mind that have nothing to do with what’s actually going on around them, and the imagined scenarios as story lines they’re always dwelling in that render them virtually unconscious to the present. While many bodily changes may be taking place in response to the energy around them, they’re so caught up in the body sensations taking place in response to their own thoughts, and so they fail to recognize them. Because of this tendency to be constantly distracted with thoughts that don’t pertain to the present, and being disconnected from our own body, much of the information our body is sending us goes ignored, until of course a state of emergency is reached and the body begins communicating in a different language, the language of physical pain, designed to get us to stop ignoring it and pay attention because a crisis is developing that could result in a life threatening event.

 
The primary difference between the two complementary aspects of the mind, the subconscious and self-conscious, is that the subconscious-body mind, doesn’t perceive “time”. It’s not distracted with imagined realities that aren’t actually real in the present moment. The subconscious is always present, always aware of what’s actually going on in its immediate environment, and making adjustments accordingly. It doesn’t create imagined realities of the past or the future that it lives out of in place of the actual present reality. The subconscious lives in the present and is “experiential” in nature, and emotionally connected to everything around it. It’s interacting with the “actual reality”, and is what produces automatic behaviors, that we do all the time without thinking about them.

 
The self-conscious mind is the verbal, language oriented, thought driven aspect of the mind that’s always distracted with its own thoughts about things that hardly ever have anything to do with the present moment. It’s the “living in your head” thing that most people do that exists “in time” (past and future), and is living an illusion in place of actual experience produced by being present. These thoughts and imaginings, usually as replaying memory, or projecting memory into the future creating a similar scenario as a prediction that forms an expectation of what’s to come, also act to provide the subconscious mind with a form of substitute reality that it perceives much like an actual reality, that programs it by providing it with a form of memory as actual information about the environment that modifies it in preparation for that reality. We are literally always in the process of programming ourselves through our imagined thoughts.

 
The imagined states we live out of as obsessive thoughts act to keep us prepared for that reality as an expectation that becomes our perceptual filter. The mind, which extends quite some distance from the body, is always gathering information from the environment and sending it back to the body, so the body can “prepare” for what’s coming. It adjusts to the perceived environment that it exists and needs to survive within. By closing down and clearing our mind of obsessive thoughts that aren’t real in the present, and turning our attention inward to our body, becoming aware of all the sensations and how we’re feeling, we can use our body as a means of measuring and interpreting everything around us in terms of how it makes us feel. We can sense whether we feel relaxed and calm, being stimulated with a distinct emotional sensation, or stirred with an inner turmoil, or have a sick and queezy feeling as an adverse reaction to something. While our body doesn’t communicate with us in words as verbal language, it does operate according to the law of analogies and correspondences, and if we concentrate on a feeling sensation in our body while in a passive mind-set, a natural mental impression will form as a reality associated to the feeling, which is a form of metaphor for understanding the nature of what’s causing the sensation. Our inner feelings are always interacting with the “inner nature” of everything else, and so reveal to us their “true” nature as their energetic constitution, regardless of what their outer appearance is like.

soul
When we become present in our life, form an awareness of our body and how we feel, we can use our body as a gauge or a form of navigation system. We can begin to realize what produces a “good effect” and what produces a “bad effect”, and what that’s telling us. We can realize the quality of consciousness present in different environments, in other people, in our relationships, in the air we breathe, in the food we eat and the water we drink, and so on. Our body is always giving us feedback about how things feel. All we have to do is become present in our body, form a relationship with it, sense and feel what’s happening within us, and use that information as a guide for what to do and what not to do. Our body let’s us know what to increase and have more of, and what to decrease or eliminate all together. It serves as a guide for what relationships to maintain, and which ones to let go. For what types of food to eat, and how to make health promoting, energizing dietary changes that will leave us feeling good.

 
Many of what we call illness and disease are actually direct feedback from our body about the lifestyle we’re living, in an attempt to provide us with what we need to make the changes necessary to restore our body to health, and a positive, high energy, feel-good state. For example, lactose intolerance is not something you should take a pill for so you can keep on drinking milk and eating cheese, it’s your body’s way of telling you it can’t digest it, and quit consuming it. Heart disease and hypertension is a condition caused by how you’re living, not only in dietary terms, but also your stress level and habitual emotional state that frames reality in a way that causes you to react negatively to your own thoughts about things. It’s your body’s way of saying you’re emotional thoughts and reactive behavior are destructive and will ultimately end up killing you if you don’t change it. Diabetes is calling your attention to the nature of your diet, and the state of your body in terms of being overweight, or not exercising. You’re maintaining a lifestyle and mental state that’s detrimental to your health. Again, it’s not warranting medication of some kind so you can keep on doing what you’re doing that’s killing yourself, it’s your body’s way of talking to you, providing you with evidence and feedback as direct and immediate affects, that also provide you with the information you need on how and what to change.

 
By becoming present in our body, and in our life in general, and removing our attention from unproductive emotional thoughts, and instead directing our attention to what’s going on within us and around us, we can realize what our body is prompting us to do by how we feel. When you choose a meal, choose one that you know is nutritious and will create a healthy happy body. As you eat it, think only about how healthy it is, and how you’re eating healthy because you love your body. After you’re done eating, sit quietly for a few minutes, and notice how your body feels in response to what you just gave it. Learn how to dialogue with your body through thoughts that form a strong feeling in your body. The “feeling” produced by your thoughts “is” the communication with your body, it’s an effect in the body as the equivalent of your thoughts. It’s not enough to go through the motions of saying it, you’ve got to mean it! You have to create the emotional expression of what you’re saying to yourself. Thought without feeling has no power to create.

Chakras

Likewise, when you go places, engage in activities, or are around certain people, calm your mind, become present and neutral, and notice how you’re feeling and what you’re sensing. Be present with the energy and see what emotional quality it has, and what mental impressions it naturally forms. Don’t force the interpretation or allow your normal judgmental mind to kick in and start running stuff, simply allow yourself to notice it, without needing to change it. Remain unattached to what you’re sensing. Don’t try and explain it or make it mean something, just sense it as it actually is. Then, see it for what it actually is, your body giving you immediate feedback as to the consciousness and energy of the person, people, or activity you’re engaged in. Use that neutral and unbiased information as factual and true to guide your decisions and how you interact. Don’t let your emotional mind come back in and start running your habitual mental script in the new situation, recreating it to mean the same thing.

 
By learning to relax, control our anxious thoughts always competing for our attention, and directing our attention instead into the present moment, and experiencing things by way of our body and the actual energy and consciousness that’s present with us, we can gain a whole new sense of ourselves and our relationship with life. We can become truly creative in the moment by directing our actions with full awareness and by interacting with what’s actually present with us. We can learn to see people and things as they actually are rather than as we reshape them to be like us through our biased judgments and habitual way of thinking and perceiving that creates illusions in place of reality.

 
When we walk into any situation with preconceived notions, and our perceptual lens rigidly formed by our judgments, that for the most part rob us of our ability to see others and reality as it actually is, apart from us, and unique unto itself, we simultaneously rob ourselves of the possibility for brand new experiences. By developing the ability to be present in our body and with the people and things around us, we can begin experiencing life and others in a whole new way. We can acquire the information and feedback we need to begin living our life in a much more conscious and aware fashion, and begin creating in a deliberate and precise manner as a result. We can learn how to live in our heart rather than in our head.

 
Simply begin observing your own mind, your own tendencies, and notice what you tend to think about in an automatic and habitual fashion, and what stories run through your mind that glaze over the present with memories of the past and keep you in a hopelessly distracted state, and recognize what it is that keeps you from being present . . . . and through this self-awareness, start practicing directing your mind to remain focused in the present and forming an awareness of how you’re feeling in relationship to your environment. Learn how to remain aware of your body and tuned into what you’re sensing through your body and what information your body’s always in the process of giving you. Tune out of the imagined reality and tune into the real reality. All opportunities only exist in the present moment. Tomorrow is being created today. You’re only ability to act, is in this moment.

Mind-Body Medicine: Understanding the Relationship between Thought, Emotion, and Physical Manifestations

The easiest way to understand the mind-body connection isn’t through researching endless forms of scientific data formed through “clinical studies”, but rather through self-observation. By simply turning inward and self-reflecting we can use our intuitive ability to observe what’s going on inside of us at any given moment, but especially in moments of strong emotional reactions, major life events, and while experiencing stress around something. The saying “as above, so below”, which reflects the relationship of a higher source on a lower source of the same nature, and the inner with the outer, shows us that physical manifestations of any kind are associated to whole processes as the relationship we naturally form with life itself. While it is possible for illness, disease, and cancer to form without an associated thought or emotional state, it’s still due to what we exist in proximity of, or consume as artificial ingredients in our diet, which comes about by how we set-up and develop our lifestyle. Most physical maladies as well as superior forms of health, both mentally and physically, come through behaviors we employ routinely that stem largely from attitudes we take on, emotional states we live out of, and the behaviors we employ and activities we naturally engage in as a result.

While we often don’t think there’s a direct correlation between emotional states and physical manifestations, there actually is a very direct and immediate connection that we’re always in the process of “experiencing”, and we have only to become self-aware in order to recognize it. Probably the easiest way to understand the relationship between thoughts, emotions, and the physical body, is to notice where emotions are experienced in the body as sensations. Anytime you’re having a distinct emotional charge, for any reason, stop in the midst of it, shift your attention from the outer cause, and turn inward, and notice what’s happening inside your body. Where in your body are you noticing distinct sensations of some sort? After you’ve located where in your body the emotion is active, notice the nature of the sensation, how would you describe it? As tingly, buzzy, jittery, stabbing, fluttery, butterflies, sinking, rising and expanding, heavy, swirling, or aroused? Notice that not only is it located in your body, but it has distinct qualities to it. Now, allow yourself to notice that emotions are always felt in the torso of the body, and seldom ever in the head or extremities, though these sensations may follow as deferred responses, or as a chain of association that originates in the torso area.

Once you’ve identified where the emotion is located in your body, place your attention inwardly and simply become present with the emotion, and the feeling it gives you, and notice what thoughts as memories of some form are associated to that same feeling. What is it that you start immediately referencing and thinking about in response to that emotion? Notice that whatever is happening in the present that you think is causing the emotional reaction, is actually doing so only because of how it’s associated to a past event that’s connected to it by the emotion itself. They share the same emotion as a feeling. That same idea (as the memory) being played out in the present “triggers” the emotional reaction “in you” in a spontaneous and automatic fashion. The memory then becomes the mental filter you look through to give the same meaning as the past event had to the present event. You tell yourself, this means the same thing as that, and you react in the same manner, making it out in your mind to be true, and therefore real. Emotions “live in us”, and we hold them as the memory associated with them in our body as tension. As patterns (memory) that provides us with instant realities as the outward expression of internal imaginings.

As you grow and move through maturity, you’ll also begin noticing that you tend to live most of your life out of a only handful of emotions. You’re in the same type of mood most of the time. This doesn’t mean that you don’t experience the full range of possible emotional states; it simply means that for the most part, in your everyday life, as a general rule, you live out of and create your experiences out of the same type of emotional states. Which means, not only is your perception and how you interpret events to give them meaning born out of these same emotions as natural expressions of those states, but it also shows you how and where you’re consistently being stimulated in your body, forming tension as memory, that eventually manifests in the organs in that same region or general area.

The memories that we use to form our basic attitude and perceptions, which are married to the emotions being experienced when we formed those memories, connect us to those same type of events and behaviors in others and in everything around us, that keep us living out of the perceptual lens of those emotions, accumulating more of them while building them into our muscle, as tension that produces natural behaviors, as well as stimulate certain parts of our body with the same sensation forming tension patterns that bear a direct influence on the reproduction of our molecular structure, producing physical correspondences that are either disease oriented and deteriorating, or health promoting and rejuvenating. Our health, in the general sense (outside of genetic heredity) is a direct and equal reflection of our mind as our mood and the perceptions that naturally issue forth out of them. These are always acting in relationship with each other, and not only influencing each other, but acting to express the same feeling state “through” each other.

Allow yourself to notice that while we may have full memory of all or most of the events of our life tucked away in some form of memory bank that can be accessed in calm states of objective recollection, for the most part what we call memories, and the ones that are easily and consistently recalled at will, are the events of our life that had strong emotional impact, and the interpretation we formed as a way of making sense of them, became the primary mental filter and “model of the world” that not only structured our mind by way of them, but reprogrammed and restructured our cellular memory as an analogy and by way of the emotions that formed the chemistry of our body, altering our state (of mind) and the state of our cells, affecting our genetic expression.

The state we use to create and maintain our body out of as the chemical, biological, and energetic (vibratory) equivalent, is produced by the attitudes we live out of, which act to produce more and more experiences of the same nature as the memories being used to propagate them. This “reproduction” of the same living states, intensifies and seats the programming into our mind and body as unification brought about through their relationship as a form of marriage. Two aspects join together, mind merges into and is consumed by the body, becoming one with each other, and acting on each other to stimulate whole bio-chemical processes that act as the programming for cellular regeneration, that eventually forms coherence by reshaping the body to be the equivalent (same frequency) of the mind, connected by the emotional state they share in common, which reformulates both into a new combination forming a reality as a new variation comprised of both. Following the same principle as a marriage that produces offspring through the DNA of both the husband and wife coming together and forming a new genetic combination as a mixture of both that produces an offspring that shares qualities and physical features of both parents. The mind and the body, the inner and the outer, form new combinations as a formula for expressing the inward state as outward behaviors that produce the reality of that state as an actual manifestation.

So as you go through your day-to-day life, stop periodically, relax your mind and your body, and simply self- reflect while subduing the anxious story as a “broken record” always playing in your head in an attempt to justify and explain why you do what you do in order to be alright keeping it – and simply notice how your thoughts, the stimulus from outside of you, your feeling-emotions, perception as a storyline that interprets everything to create a consistent experience, your behaviors and the activities you engage in – all have in common by the relationship they form. Notice how they play off of each other and always act in a unified and congruent manner.

When you learn how to intuitively make connections that you don’t normally have an awareness of, you can begin to realize the real nature of the mind-body connection, and how one is always the direct mirror reflection of the other in the same reality. You can’t display depressed emotions while thinking happy thoughts. When you’re feeling happy, you can’t access memories of unhappy experiences. You can only access memories that match “happy”, memories you created and acquired while being happy. If you’re happy and someone around you starts talking about unhappy stuff, or triggers a different emotion in you and changes how you feel, then you begin thinking the type of thoughts, or replaying the type of memories that match that feeling.

The thoughts we think and their emotional equivalent, shape the cellular structure of the body by influencing genetic memory by saturating the bloodstream with hormones as emotional chemistry that alter the state of the cell and changing how it behaves. The memory we form through our primary conditioning, formed partially through our genetic expression as inherited traits, acts to first shape our subconscious mind as an adaptation that modifies it according to the physical conditions it exists within, forming the initial patterns of the mind that become the mental paradigm as the marriage between mind (perception) and body (behavior as personality) joined by the emotional state that binds them together as a unified mechanism. Make changes in one, and it systematically produces an equivalent change in the other two.

Dreaming

Through self-awareness and our ability to see the relationship that exists between our thoughts – emotions – and behaviors, we can begin taking control of the process and directing it in an intentional manner. We can begin choosing new memories that employ new attitudes to shape our perceptual lens and learn how to tell a new story about ourselves, about others, and about the way things are. We can embody new ways of being out of those memories that will literally reshape how we experience life. We can reformulate our mind and the memories that act as primary perceptual patterns that are currently creating our experience of reality, and begin instead identifying with new sets of memories and learning how to tell the story of those memories that cause us to feel different, act different, and experience a new array of emotions, all of which transform our perceptual lens, and begin seeing and experiencing life in a whole new way! We can also learn how to reshape the same memories by interpreting and re-imagining them through a new perspective and attitude, changing how we experience them and what type of story we begin telling out of them as a result.

Healing. Like all things, begins with awareness of our own tendencies and the patterns as a chain of association between an idea, the thought process that ensues from it, the emotions it stimulates, and how we behave that shapes our life. Once we can “see” what we’re actually doing from an objective perspective, we no longer engage in it automatically (without awareness) and in that moment we realize that we have a choice. Because it no longer renders us unconscious where we go into an automatic program, we can choose what we focus on, what we think, how we feel, and the story we begin running through our mind as a way of creating our experience that simultaneously creates our physical body by way of, or as the direct equivalent of our mental-emotional paradigm. Just as we heal our mental patterns, we heal the physical patterns they produce, which transforms us at the cellular level by reforming the chemistry of emotions.

All healing begins with awareness of unconscious tendencies, that loosen their grip just through recognition, while opening up a whole new array of possibilities for what type of experiences we want to create in place of what was previously an automated program of reactive behaviors that left us with no choice and simply repeated old and worn patterns. How we feel is a reflection of what we think about. The chemistry of our body produced by hormones, not only regulates our “state” to match our (imagined) environment, but also controls all the major functions of the body such as heart rate, breathing rate, blood pressure, hunger, thirst, sex drive, diverting blood flow to different regions of the body, digestion, sleep, metabolism, assimilation of nutrients, temperature, producing the “fight or flight” response producing stress, and so on. How we think and feel and what we picture in our mind as an imagined reality, influences and simultaneously regulate the biological processes of our body which manifest as health and homeostasis, or as the symptoms of illness and disease.

energy design
This is why conventional medicine doesn’t “heal” anything, but concentrates instead on medicating and managing the symptoms, or surgically altering, repairing or removing damaged parts, because it doesn’t take into consideration the mental and emotional aspects that are producing the symptoms, behaviors and lifestyle that result in the physical manifestation. Most illness and disease that come on and are developed throughout our life are a result of our lifestyle, and are produced by the mental and emotional paradigm we live out of which results in our lifestyle.

Many of what we deem “hereditary” issues is actually due to the fact that we are conditioned to the same lifestyle and behavioral tendencies as our parents, and are not actually due to genes at all. Our genes, like every aspect of life, are not stationary and fixed ideas, but are living, growing and evolving based on how they are exchanging information with everything around them and using that information to modify its structure that affects how it regenerates. Our body is undergoing a constant form of regeneration as transformation that evolves it to new forms of expression. What we think, how we feel, what we eat, the air we breathe, the people we interact with, the emotions we experience, the electromagnetic fields were surrounded with, the chemicals that we build our houses, cars and furnishings out of . . . are all exchanging energy as information that re-chemicalizes and restructures the cells of the body causing them to express in the manner they are that’s producing our overall health. To change our health, we have to work with the components affecting and comprising it. If we only work with the end result as the physical aspect, then we’re left managing and manipulating symptoms without ever identifying or correcting their cause.

In this approach, healing as transformation of the relationship that exists between all aspects of our mind and body never take, place, and so the symptoms that result from our physical condition remain intact and have to be “treated”, usually by regulating them with a chemical cocktail of prescription drugs, which merely masks the cause as a lifestyle issues making it even more difficult to identify. In some cases, when gene expression is altered or forced into remission in one area of the body, it simply begins expressing in other areas, producing a new array of symptoms that are born of the same fundamental cause. At other times, the emotional impact of a medical diagnosis, delivered with a full description of the symptoms of the disease, anchor that emotional state and the reality inherent in it within the mind of the individual, and they begin cooperating by co-creating the disease with the doctor that diagnosed it. By looking for the lifestyle issues associated with the behaviors producing the illness or disease, and finding the mental and emotional component driving the behavior, we can cure the disease by altering the personal paradigm that’s ultimately producing it. This can often be achieved through natural means that keep the person with the problem fully empowered in their own life to willingly initiate the process of transformation that will simultaneously transform their health by way of their own self-directed actions.

Creating Good Health is not Rocket Science – “The Art of a Healthy Diet”

It’s interesting that the idea of creating good health or being healthy is often perceived as difficult to do. This is probably due largely to the fact that much of our food supply is artificial, processed and loaded with unnatural chemicals, or is a strategic composition of products designed to be highly addictive and of course, taste good. Other programs approach healthy eating as the need to be a nutritional expert or involve elaborate tables for “calorie counting” and measuring fat content, gauging everything by a number system of some sort that makes the whole process tedious and cumbersome. Along with this dilemma, supplements presented as the answer to poor eating habits, are largely synthetic, and usually only abstract one chemical from a whole organism as a vitamin or nutrient, and for the most part, not valuable to our actual health outside of the placebo affect, and are thought, like all synthetic chemicals to cause cancer with prolonged use. This dietary nightmare tends to not only create poor conditions in the body, but also mental and emotional depression that’s low-grade and chronic in nature, and because people are accustomed to it and think of it as ‘normal’, goes unrecognized. Yet, creating good health can be accomplished by simply following a few basic principles.

 
These health promoting principles deal with whole ideas instead of fragmented ones and should be implemented in stages as small yet consistent steps with reasonable time frames allotted to each stage. Trying to do too much at once, causing a feeling of deprivation, withdrawal, and suffering, will only act to sabotage the overall goal, or simply replace toxic material chemistry with emotional chemistry which produces an equivalent affect. Also, anytime you’re “quitting something”, especially something you really like and are used to, still set reasonable guidelines for when you can have it that reduce it to only an occasional event. Usually, what actually makes a product bad is the frequency of consumption, and anything only eaten occasionally probably isn’t going to hurt you or produce a pronounced affect. Being extreme in any area should always be avoided and a sense of moderation employed instead. You don’t want to take the attitude of correcting one imbalance by producing another.
There are three basic natural substances that are addictive by their very nature because they’re stimulants, and should be recognized as such.

These three products are:

Sugar (or artificial sweeteners)

• Salt – sodium

• Fats (of any kind)

 

All of these derived from natural sources and consumed in moderation can be healthy for the body and serve to promote overall health. Sugar obtained naturally from fruits and vegetables that the body converts to glucose, unless you have diabetes or a health condition where all sugar intake has got to be monitored, is probably going to be fine. The energy obtained from natural, plant based foods, gives you the same sugar boost without the crash. Salt, again, is actually a necessary mineral, is important for thyroid health, promotes alkalinity in the body, and is only harmful because the modern diet of highly processed foods uses gross amounts of it not only as a flavor enhancer and preservative but also ‘because’ it’s addictive. Just eliminating processed foods and minimizing the use of table salt will probably remedy and restore balance to your system in regards to salt intake.

 
Fats are a bit trickier, because we have “good” fats and “bad” fats, but as a general rule of thumb, stay away from any foods that are cooked in ‘hot oils’, which are extremely carcinogenic and known to cause cancer. As a general rule, pick oils that remain liquid at room (ambient) or cold temperatures. Eliminate all forms of margarine which is a synthetic product, and if you need to continue using a similar product, use unsalted ‘real’ butter instead, and only occasionally. If you choose to eat animals, reduce consumption to one serving a day, approximately the size of your fist. Cheese, which is the highest cholesterol food there is, like milk and all dairy (comes from cows), causes mucous and congestion in the body, which is never good. So again, if you don’t eliminate dairy, definitely reduce your intake.

 
Other chemical additives, such as MSG, aspartame, corn syrup, along with numerous dyes, flavor enhancers, and preservatives, none of which are natural or good for you, can be eliminated for the most part by eliminating processed foods, which are loaded with them. Processed foods are not only boxed, instant powders, and prepared foods, but also any canned, frozen or packaged foods which are processed as a preparation and have chemical additives of various sorts. When considering packaged foods, always read the ingredients to see what’s in it. Always avoid any food that has a lot of ingredients as chemical additives (you don’t know what they are for sure) or that’s fortified with nutritional additives. The reason foods are fortified is because the nutrition normally found in that type of food has been destroyed through the processing and is enriched with vitamins that are synthetic (chemical) versions that your body won’t be able to properly assimilate.

Fruits and Vegetables
Also, anytime you’re choosing to eliminate one thing or a food group, you need to also decide what you’re going to replace it with. Work by the basic idea that all habits are not “stopped” they’re simply transformed from unhealthy to healthy habits. The adage that “nature abhors a vacuum”, means, that anytime you create a “void” something will automatically be drawn into that void, and knowing this and working with principles of Nature instead of against them, we want to “decide” what’s drawn in that’s replacing whatever we’re removing. By deciding ahead of time what you’re going to replace items with, the “on the spot decisions” are easy, pre-calculated and immediate. Ease is a key feature to change!

 
To form your initial plan, start with primary ideas, and implement them one at a time (unless giving up something is easy), and as a good rule of thumb, allow at least forty days for each step before implementing the next. It takes approximately 40 days of consistency to transform old habits and establish new behaviors that become natural and automatic. After approximately six weeks of doing something, it becomes natural and no longer requires any kind of effort or actual decision making process.
In selecting the items and behaviors we’ll look at transforming, we’ll naturally start with the worst ones, and work our way down. If any of these areas seem like a huge change (you eat them a lot), then break the area itself down into two or three groups that will make the transition gradual.

 

These are the areas we’ll start with:
• Soda pop – any carbonated sugary (processed) drink. The carbonation is as bad if not worse than the sugar content and is known to cause bone-thinning as osteoporosis. While water is always the best option, wean yourself off high sugar drinks.

 
• Deep-fried foods, or any food cooked in hot-oils. Any kind of oil heated is extremely carcinogenic and creates a ton of free radicals, which are detrimental to your health causing general deterioration and cancers.

 
• Sweets, candy, desserts, ice-cream, and artificially flavored foods. Sugars not only cause weight gain, but also bind to nutrients and carry them out of the body, causing nutritional deficiency.

 
• Processed foods – most fast food. These are laced with chemicals and the processing strips them of any real nutritional value. The body can’t assimilate synthetic foods. Many of the chemicals used are known to cause cancer as well as an array of health problems. Only eat what looks like real food – whole foods.

 
• Dairy products – especially cheese. You don’t have to eliminate necessarily, but bring down to one portion a day.

 
• Processed breads, cakes, and products made with white-processed flour. They contain very little nutrients and are fattening. Go for products that are “stone ground” or made of non-processed wheat.

 
• If you eat animals, regardless of what kind (including fish), reduce your intake to one serving a day, approximately the size of your fist. Avoid any meat that’s breaded and fried, seared over and open flame, or grilled using charcoal (petroleum based).
• Eat a reasonable portion of grains, seeds and nuts. Avoid salted and “roasted” nuts, as they contain natural oils which are heated through the process of cooking.

 
• Develop the habit of using healthy “oils”. Oils that remains liquid at room temperatures. Extra Virgin olive oil is a good choice because it’s derived from olives through a “cold press” method and doesn’t involve heating the oil. However cooking with olive oil makes it just as carcinogenic as all oils. For cooking, consider coconut oil, which remains fairly stable when heated. Otherwise, exercise moderation.

 
• Plant based foods – whole fruits and vegetables should consist of 50-70% of your diet. Keep in mind that grains, nuts and seeds are also plant-based foods. Fats contained naturally in plants (which are very little) have a different affect on the body than fats derived from animal products. So a plant based diet is typically low in fat and calories and high in nutrients and dietary fiber.

 

 

Again, when eliminating anything from your diet take an attitude of significantly decreasing while still allotting occasional use. What you’ll find is that in doing so, you lose your taste for it, and after a while, no longer crave it, or when you do eat it, you don’t like it or it makes you feel funny. Keep in mind that your body will grow accustomed to whatever you feed it on a regular basis. By eliminating sugar from your diet over a period of time, when you do eat it, it can seem to make you feel queasy. When eliminating fried foods for an extended period of time, just the smell of grease will turn your stomach. When eliminating dairy over a period of time, you lose interest in it and don’t really think about it.

 
Again, make sure that at no point you create a feeling of struggling or suffering. When this happens you produce body chemistry as hormones that can be just as harmful as the food chemicals you’re eliminating. If you get a strong craving, indulge it, and then go back to your practice. If you’re eliminating carbonated drinks, for example, allow yourself to have them on special occasions such as when seeing a movie, at a fair or carnival, at a social engagement or sports event, and so on, where you’re still allowed, but only occasionally. The toughest part is breaking the daily routine, not the occasional one. And again, you want to avoid becoming extreme or gun-ho in any area, which simply creates a new “imbalance”. The key to success is a preplanned idea of what you’re doing and why you’re doing it, coupled with an attitude of moderation.

Creative Transformation
Transformation is a form of creation. It’s where we’re taking something that has already undergone the basic stages of creation in the initial sense, and continuing to create it by growing and evolving it into new and higher forms of itself.

All transformation requires the use of our creative ability through the fundamental capacities of choice and free will. We have to first decide what changes we want to make, or what aspects of ourselves we’re going to intentionally develop, form that idea in our imagination as a reality, imbue it with strong positive emotions, then discipline ourselves into new behaviors that actualize those changes as an outer reality. A reality of our own making that we brought about through our actions in and intentional and deliberate manner.

We are all born into this world with a kind of formula for creating inside of us. This formula exists as our dreams in terms of what we love and have an affinity for, and our strengths, talents and gifts that are usually apart of what we love, and weakness and fears that act to prevent us from obtaining what we dream of. Our dream for our life is our navigation system for our destiny as our life’s story as a theme or general idea we’re always naturally gravitating towards. Our strengths and talents are tools for creating the life we dream of, and our weaknesses and fears are what prevent us from achieving our life’s ambition. Love of an idea draws us into it, fear acts to stop us and prevent us from moving into it. These 3 aspects always exist in relationship to each other because they set the natural stage for the lessons that will facilitate our soul’s growth by way of them. Our dream is the overall pattern as a story we tell by living that exists in polarity of positive and negative aspects. Positive expands while negative contracts. One is creative, the other destructive. One facilitates our growth the other sabotages it. This equation as our internal programming shows us in very clear terms what aspects of our character we came here to develop in this lifetime.

Cosmic_creativity

Our interests and passions and what we have a natural affinity for as a way of life or our “life’s work” is what we came here to experience as a quality of consciousness that develops and strengthens the aspects necessary to achieve it in us as our character or identity. A certain character is necessary to tell a certain type of story as the natural expression (thoughts and behaviors) of that character. Our strengths are usually necessary to actualize our dream, while our weaknesses prevent us from actualizing it. We have to walk through or confront our fears and weaknesses in order to realize the dream for our life. Our life path is never easy, and always requires us to overcome our fears and weaknesses in order to obtain.

The only purpose of life is to set the stage necessary for us to grow ourselves by using our will to self-create. All growth only comes by striving, consistent effort, and determination. We have to willfully produce our growth through our actions which require us to access the aspects of ourselves necessary to overcome or bring back into balance the aspects being expressed as our weaknesses and fears. Weaknesses, which are always attached to fear, simply show us what we need to work on and what parts of ourselves we need to bring into harmony by counteracting them with the positive aspect of the same trait. Weaknesses are always the basis for addictions, most of which are destructive in nature. Addictions are formed as a coping device for our weaknesses, where whatever we are addicted to we lack the strength to overcome, and so it serves to control us.

creative-evolutionary-consciousness

All tendencies that form our behavior are natural forces that form whole patterns that exist in polarity as positive and constructive (active) aspects, and negative and destructive (preventative) aspects. All natural forces exist in polarity as opposite and complementary aspects necessary to stimulate each other and bring balance back to whatever is out of balance that prevents the harmonious expression of the whole or greater pattern that they’re both apart of. For example, we can only know ourselves as “courageous” when we encounter situations in our life that make us afraid and tempted to coward, and we choose instead to take affirmative action in spite of the fear. All experience is relative and formed out of how things exist in relationship and contrast to each other.

So weaknesses simply show us where imbalances exist in our psychological make-up and what aspects we need to access, call forth, and develop by using it to turn the weakness into a strength. What prevents us from living the life of our dreams, shows us the lesson we came here to learn. What we love and desire the most, is also what we have the greatest fears around. Our fears are always associated with our loves. Love and fear are opposite forces in the same idea. Love creates a feeling of resonance as desire and compels us towards what we love, while fear repels us and not only prevents us from moving into what we love, but drives us away from it. Both are centered on the same idea (vibration), one attracts and expands the other repels and contracts.

Our destiny, as what we love and feel an intimate connection with is the larger idea for our life that makes both our strengths and weaknesses apparent. We have to step into our fears in order to dissolve them using courage as the driving force behind love. Fear is designed to stop us from taking action and moving forward. Courage is recognizing the fear, gaining realization around it, and choosing to move forward in spite of the fear. Just the act of stepping forward into what we fear, acts to dissolve the fear. Once it no longer serves to hold us back and weaken us, it no longer exists as real for us. Fear, is in reality, an illusion.

Transcendence

“The only thing to fear is fear itself”

“It’s not what happens to us that matters, but how we react to what happens. What we allow to come through us because of what happens”

All transformation comes as a form of self-creation, whether consciously by actively pursuing our destiny, or unconsciously by what seems like the blow of fate. Whether we engage in our own development with full awareness and deliberate actions, or through crisis, where we experience it as happening “to us” through means beyond our control. All life crises are simply changes that force us to move in a new direction, take on a new role, or adapt our life to new conditions. When we willingly adapt to the changes, and realize them as the catalyst for growth, we can bring about intentional and deliberate change that uses the circumstances to develop and bring about new aspects of ourselves necessary to rise up and meet the challenges and triumph by way of them. When we see them as happening “to us” and resist them, we let them overwhelm us, feeling powerless in our own life to change them, and we succumb to them, which not only strengthens our weaknesses making them more prominent, but creates a whole new array of other ones as their offspring. The only thing we truly have control over in life . . . is ourselves. While we can’t change other people or the conditions and circumstances of our life, we can absolutely change how we experience them and how we respond in relationship with them to self-create by way of them.

While we are always undergoing a subtle form of transformation through the relationship we form and exist within with all of life, true creativity only comes through awareness, by forming an idea of what you want to create, then embodying the qualities and behaviors necessary to produce it as your reality of yourself. It’s always a question of whether or not you’re aware of how you’re acting in your own life through the story you tell yourself about things, or whether you remain unaware of how you’re actually acting to create yourself all the time by how you interact with life.

good and bad

Choice, like everything else, is polar in nature, just as our mind exists in a balance of conscious and subconscious states, we’re always either choosing consciously with awareness, or unconsciously without direct awareness through a reaction of some sort. While most of our choices are made in an automatic fashion through natural and immediate reactions of some sort, by becoming present in our lives and forming a awareness around what’s actually happening while recognizing what it stimulates in us that forms our “reactions”, we can become aware of our own tendencies and make new choices in their place that create new experiences.

All healing is a form of transformation as self-creation that brings what is acting in our lives (selves) to create at the unconscious level into conscious awareness. It comes when we shed light into the darkness and see what we couldn’t see before that equips us with the ability to act in ways that transform what was created in an unconscious manner into what’s created through a conscious choice and intentional actions. Personal transformation, also referred to as our second birth or spiritual awakening, is when we become awake and aware in our own life while realizing our power to create ourselves by way of our life circumstances, and begin exercising our higher capacities of choice, shaping that choice into a reality in our imagination, then willfully acting it out to create an experience of it. While resting in the realization . . . that we created it by simply using our mind in a new way.
