The Archetypal Nature of the Spirit, the Creative Power of the Soul and the Nature of the Self

One of the most fundamental errors we make in how we think about things comes when we start from the premise of duality and separation. Any hypothesis that’s based on a concept of separation while referring to our essential self or spiritual nature is an illusion in the most basic sense of the idea. I can remember a few years back attending a conference with what we could clearly call new agers, and one of the main ideas being expressed at that time was that our soul is not our “self”, with the “self” meaning who we are in relation with our body, personality, and ego formed out of identification with the body. When asked who you were the “right answer” was to state that you were a divine universal being, or something of that nature, instead of saying your name. They were teaching duality in the most basic sense and didn’t even seem to be aware of it.

This is a common error created through a lack of understanding of the principles governing different planes of existence, illustrated through the Hermetic axiom “As above so below, and as below so above, in the miraculous workings of the One thing”, and the concept of “eternity as immortality”. When we fail to understand fundamental universal principles that apply to all life, that misunderstanding comes through and is equally reflected in everything we think and do. While the idea of universal principles forming the basis for all life may appear to be based on a “belief” because it seems to offer no real “facts” to support it, this is also based on what it is we’re referring to as “facts”, and how it is that we know if something is true or not, and therefore “real”. Within the invisible principles that accompany and serve to organize and give life to the material world resides one of the greatest paradoxes and pervading mysteries of all time. How do we “know” if something is real or not?

I have often found it amazing if not a bit bewildering how science is always on a group quest to find “the theory of everything”, as though it’s going to come through a mechanical model of some kind or as the result of some kind of measurement or mathematical equation, without seeming to recognize that all science and reality itself is only “knowable” through our ability to perceive it. Society itself is being trained to rely on some kind of scientific study conducted by an expert to tell them what can only really be known through direct experience. The common denominator to all life and the whole “cosmic mystery” is the “mind”. All science arises out of our ability to think about things while wondering about new possibilities. Reality is only real and therefore “knowable” through our minds ability to perceive it. Every single mind of every individual perceives a slightly different and highly personalized version of what’s called an objective or shared reality that’s common to everyone.

This amazing feat of infinite possibilities for a single idea is produced by a dynamic series of “filters” that are used to sort through a vast and infinite amount of information inherent in the invisible field of information that surrounds us. Our mental filters serve to bring out and accentuate some features inherent in the whole, while subduing and excluding others to form a “new field of organized information” which is as a “personal creation” formed as a mental construct. How we experience reality changes based on the formation of new filters and the ongoing transformation of existing ones. These mental filters, also called perceptual filters, are formed out of beliefs, values, preferences, and memory. These filters form our mental paradigm, which is what we use as the means of shaping our reality by how we select, interpret, and organize specific aspects of any situation in order to create how we “experience” it.

Our mental paradigm is comprised of a system of mental filters that form our “perceptual lens” which is what we “look through” as the means of experiencing reality. We only see, process, form as a conceptual image and therefore comprehend what can be constructed, explained, described, and confirmed using our paradigm. When we understand this idea in the most basic sense we realize that what we tend to call “reality” is formed as a mental construct and projection of our mind. Nothing “out there” exists independent of what’s “in here”. One is the continuation and extension of the other as a mirror image (polar opposite). Everyone takes what exists as a universal field of potential and through a process of natural selection, reshapes it into a personalized, subjective version as their “experience”. All reality is the result of perception, and all perception forms how we experience our self “as” a reality. We don’t necessarily “manifest” material reality itself, but rather reshape it through our mental model to resemble us, and serve as a primary means of self-expression that provides us with a mirror into all aspects of our mind, many of which are hidden from us in the ordinary sense.

Our mind, like the light that makes up reality, is invisible to the senses, and we typically only “perceive” and form an entire reality out of a very small part of the light spectrum. We only see a small fraction of what’s “actually there”. There are many aspects of reality being played out all around us, within the same space, which we don’t recognize or perceive directly with our physical senses. This is because our senses are what allows us to perceive the world around us. What this tells us is that like the individual reality created using our mental paradigm by recombining key elements inherent in the whole to form a new possibility, what we perceive at any given time is only a small aspect of a much, much greater whole.

What we commonly refer to as the “soul” is equivalent with the mind, both of which are invisible to our senses. We can look at the mind as being a universal principle and the soul as being what works through the mind to produce a material image of itself. Our soul is our personal consciousness built up through experiences of itself acquired through the body. The Soul creates reality as the means of experiencing itself as its own creation. We only gain knowledge of ourselves through direct experience. The soul utilizes the mind as a means of constructing a reality of itself, which it then uses in order to experience itself “as” as a material being. It doesn’t do this by simply designing the body that it then inhabits as a “personality”, but by creating the “whole reality” of the body necessary to experience itself in a specific way.

The entire outer reality of the personality is produced as a mental projection that’s naturally formed out of our formative conditioning. Our initial conditioning takes place as a child through a process of adaptation that modifies and adjusts our paradigm to match our environment. In this way we can produce a unique variable of the same core essence and evolve ourselves according to a specific set of conditions and circumstances. The soul isn’t comprised of the personalized version created through our body, personality, and identity within the body, but by taking the personalized experience created and returning it to a universal, archetypal state. The human soul is archetypal in nature and is comprised of unique combinations and potencies of different qualities to form a new and unique whole. The process of creation is represented by the infinity symbol as a perpetual movement between parallel planes that are complementary in nature.

 We draw on a universal archetype as the means of producing an experience of our self as an outer projection, and then reabsorb the experience created and turn it back into a universal state as our soul’s memory and essence. Our soul is comprised of universal memory that is metaphorical and thematic in nature, because this is necessary in order to be able to adapt it to any situation as the means of creating more of the same type of experiences. Our soul is universal in nature and is what’s creating the entire material plane of manifestation as an individual. It’s holistic in nature, and exists in a whole, unified form on its native plane.

Subtle Body

Our soul designs what we call the “light body” or “etheric double” of subtle energy which serves as the blueprint for not only constructing and animating the body, but for the entire reality produced “through the body” as a mental projection. It creates the world through which it experiences itself from the inside out. It’s in a constant state of transformation based on the energy its constantly absorbing from everything around it as the Earth’s soul. This is done through the principle of polarity as a form of electromagnetic pulsation and respiration. We’re always drawing in the energy from around us that’s of a similar nature to us, and metabolizing it to adjust our mental model. As we metabolize and assimilate new energies (information) we equalize ourselves in terms of energetic composition to match or be the same nature as the environment we live, grow, and experience ourselves through.

All creation that’s of an intelligent (highly organized) and complex nature requires a blueprint, model, or prototype in order to be systematically produced, reproduced, and maintained. Our light body, like our physical body which is a mirror image of it, is constantly undergoing a process of regeneration through the birth, maturity, and death process. The outer reality of organized light of the Earth’s soul (Nature) is mentally constructed by the individual as an emanation. Our energy field is not confined to the body, and extends quite some distance from our body in more and more subtle forms. While we tend to think that our “self” as our “I” (identity) is not formed as an individual by our soul, and that our body is somehow separate from our mind, soul, and spirit which give us life, it is in fact the creation of our soul, and is in a constant state of growth and transformation. This also forms the illusion that “consciousness” is somehow produced by the brain and nervous system, instead of what’s using it as a vehicle for traversing and working within the material plane, which exists fully “within it” as an essential part of it.

The soul is what gives life to the body and acts as the “organizing principle” of all material forms. Every single material form (light body made of photons) is an emanation of One Light. The Soul is the electrical force that “charges plasma” and organizes light (photons) into a distinct pattern. It coagulates light to form a ghost-like image of gases (astral fluid), which then becomes more densely concentrated as liquid-light (etheric substance), which is used to organize the entire lower material plane. It’s the life-force that operates and runs our body through electrical impulses that set a chain-reaction in motion as a neurological process of equilibrium. Our mind as an “energetic state” (frequency) works through our brain, nervous system, and endocrine system to adjust our body to the same state. Our brain and nervous system is what you can think of as our command center for operating our body.

All “thought” comes as electrical sparks that stimulate various parts of our brain to form a kind of encoded message system that’s translated into chemical messengers by various parts of our body. A spark ignites, awakening and setting into motion a mental function, which then follows a series of pathways, similar to how lightning propagates through the atmosphere, forming a whole orchestration of correlated activities. As consciousness is transmitted through the brain and nervous system as electrical impulses, it stimulates hormone production of the endocrine system where it’s translated into orders for organizing a synchronized event, flooding the bloodstream with the chemical instructions necessary to synchronize all systems of the body to produce a unified motion as activity of the whole being.

It’s the mind operating through the brain that creates our reality as a conscious state, and for this reason creates the illusion of consciousness arising from the brain. Spirit comes “through the body” and projects reality from within outward. In order to change the outer appearance of reality in terms of how we perceive and thereby experience it, we have to work to change our mental paradigm that ordering, organizing, and producing it as a mental projection. If we try to change our experience by working on the outer material manifestation we usually end up simply creating the same type of experience, only in a new way. This is where you get sayings like “no matter where you go, there you are”.

The outer reality only changes in exact proportion to the inner reality. Our inner reality, formed as a mental construct out of memory, serves to organize the substrata (energetic matrix) out of which all material phenomena arise as an emanation. We change the inner by studying and constantly taking in new information that we conceptualize as an inner representation that brings new realizations about the same thing, causing a paradigm shift. As we imagine ideas in detail, developing them the more we think about them, they become a set of instructions for our subconscious to produce as an outer experience of the same type and kind. As we apply knowledge to produce an experience of it as a reality, we absorb our experience and it becomes our soul’s essence. When we stop learning and growing, we become stagnate and complacent, and begin dying. We’re always both expanding and reforming, or we’re contracting and dying, becoming smaller and less capable of adapting.

 So to say that there’s “no self” is an anomaly that comes out of a fundamental misconception. The “self” is actually the creation of the soul necessary in order to experience itself in a specific way as a material being. The self isn’t fixed as the form itself in a completely limited state, it’s constantly fluctuating and morphing as a continuous growth process based on an overall plan as the life naturally produced by the soul. The entire material plane is the creation of the soul and is what provides it with an “experience” of a certain kind, necessary in order to “know itself”. What we call the spirit exists on a higher plane of vibration as archetypes in an ideal and potential (unformed) state, which are drawn down by the soul on a medium plane through sympathetic induction, and utilized to form an image of itself that is then projected into the lower, material plane in order to experience itself. The soul is comprised of a vibration that forms the lower frequency of the higher plane, and the highest frequency of the lower plane. It acts as a circuit or conduit for spirit to manifest in form as one of an infinite number of possibilities without being changed from its original state on the higher plane.

This is what’s meant by the idea that only what “descends” from heaven “returns” or ascends back into heaven. Universal archetypes are “ideals” (perfect) that are drawn into the mind of the soul where they’re blended and modified according to the nature of the soul and used to manifest in the lower planes as a personal creation. In their original state archetypes are “pure and unmixed”, and become an amalgamation when mixed with the consciousness of the individual soul. The experience created by the soul of itself in form is then reabsorbed as experience of itself, where it’s then translated into a metaphorical theme as a memory of the soul. The personal aspect is transformed back into its original universal state as archetypal essence as the memory of the soul that comprises its constitution.

All memories acquired while in a body are synthesized to form a new whole as the soul’s essence. The soul’s essence forms its character and moral summation as it’s “nature”, and is what enters into another body and restructures itself into a new variation based on all the elements used to form a new series of combinations as relationships. The same essence as well developed characteristics formed out of accumulated memory that’s built-up over time, undergoes another transformative process of adaptation and modification that forms a whole new expression of the same essence. Just as the soul structures itself as a “whole reality”, it also restructures and evolves itself from one incarnation to the next. Different genetic factors, living conditions, environment, race, culture, family, and era produces a whole new series of relationships that stimulate us in different ways, developing our personality accordingly.

The soul is in a constant and never ending state of transformation and evolution. It’s fluctuating energetically based on how the inner aspects and qualities interact with those same energies in the outer projection. We’re always acting “on ourselves” in and as everything else. What we perceive as a reality that’s separate from us is actually more of an extension and continuation of our mind and soul as the same idea being played out on different scales. Our outer world is created by our subconscious mind, which is also the group mind shared by all life on Earth. It’s constructed as a “whole mind” rather than a fragmented one, and contains aspects of ourselves that we’re normally unaware of (our shadow), which is why we don’t recognize them as being our own.

The object to life in recognizing our “true identity” as the creator of our reality and life’s story comes by the “inner and outer” becoming a unified whole that we perceive in a fully conscious way. This only comes by forming an awareness of our unconscious aspects, also referred to as our “shadow aspects”. These are the aspects of our self that we judged harshly for some reason, refusing to express them, and denying having them as a result . . . even to ourselves. This renders us unconscious in the most basic sense, because we perceive our shadow nature in our outer world without realizing it. As we form an image of ourselves in a split, fragmented way, as separate from ourselves, we also form our outer reality in the same manner. As we deny and repress our shadow aspects because we’ve judged them to be “bad” or “wrong” to have, we simultaneously begin forming an image of ourselves out of a fragmented state of only owning what we deem to be good, and admirable, forming what’s referred to as our false ego.

Our ego is an illusion of ourselves created out of a fragmented mind. We’re provided with a mirror into our hidden nature through our outer experience of reality, but don’t realize it because we’ve denied having those traits to ourselves, and as a result, don’t have a clear memory of them, so we don’t know they’re ours. We don’t realize that the reason we form a “reaction to them” is because we possess the complementary aspect in its latent state. We bring ourselves back into a harmonious and unified state of equilibrium by learning how to relinquish judgment of ourselves “in” others and harmonize them into our whole being as a result.

We judge the same traits in others to the exact same degree that we judge those same traits in our self, causing us to go unconscious while still projecting those traits onto others. We don’t “give people” those traits, so to speak, but rather perceive the same traits in them and react to them as a result. Once we realize that the outer world is a mirror reflection of the inner world in a whole and unified state, we can use it to self-reflect and follow our judgments back to their root. Once we recognize those same traits in our self and embrace them by harmoniously integrating them into our experience, and finding an appropriate expression for them, we act to heal ourselves and become whole again.

As we experience compassion as understanding of ourselves, our judgment of those same things in others fades away, and it becomes a harmonious part of our whole self and our perception of reality. This is what Jesus was elucidating when he said, “when the outer becomes the same as the inner, and the inner becomes the same as the outer, you’ll have entered the gates of heaven”. What we call heaven is the native plane of the soul where everything exists in a unified state of self-awareness and harmony. Once we identify our outer reality as a reflection and projection of our own mind, we touch on our true identity as a higher divine being that’s acting to create our entire worldly experience as an experience of our self.

All reality is formed as a manifestation of One Source. All reality is formed out of a cosmic seed of spirit that impregnates the individual soul as it also impregnates the soul of humanity as a whole. This is why the spirit is often referred to in masculine terms, and the soul in feminine terms. Reality as we’re capable of knowing it through our perception is the offspring of the soul and spirit. The Trinity is illustrated in mythological terms as the husband and wife, who together produce a child as their offspring. The spirit exists in a purely potential state as an ideal that’s drawn into the soul as a form of “seed”, and gestates it turning it into a “reality” as the combination of both manifested as a material matrix. In order to manifest as a new form, a new seed has to be drawn in through resonance and allowed to incubate as a process of adaptation that shapes it into a modified version that’s harmonious to the soul’s paradigm, where it can be incorporated logically into the whole structure of reality as a natural part of our soul’s perception of itself.

Form as material manifestation is the expression of spirit brought down the planes of density (destiny) by the soul. The spirit is the “ether” as the unified field of intelligence in its potential state that permeates the entire universe, informing it. The human soul is of the Astral Plane of Light and Formation, and the body-template produced through their copulation, forms the etheric double or subtle body, all of which are invisible to the physical senses. In order to work with our physical manifestation, we have to work through our subtle light body which is formed by our mind and spirit. This is what’s being referred to when it’s stated that we have to work by way of the laws that govern the higher planes in order to over-ride and work directly with the material plane. We have to work with the laws governing our mind, which are primarily the laws of mentation, vibration, and polarity, all of which are correspondences of each other.

Self-Empowerment – The Relationship between Choice, Will, and Creation

This idea can seem confusing in terms of being able to actually employ it at the practical level because it involves different functions of different aspects of our own mind working in harmony with each other to produce the same outcome as an experience of reality. We have to understand the nature of our own mind in order to use it in a masterful way to create our reality. All of what we call our “higher capacities” of creation come through learning how our mind works at different stages of the same overall process, and how to not only use it in a deliberate and intentional manner, but also how to “troubleshoot” problems through a process of self-reflection that brings deeper forms of awareness.

All of life exists as a form of “feedback loop” between the inner and outer, and the upper and lower. We’re always working within and interacting with three planes of existence simultaneously as the means of both creating our reality, and then experiencing ourselves as that reality, shaping ourselves accordingly. Our mind is our soul and is not only the aspect of ourselves that’s multidimensional, but also the means and instrument through which we create intentionally to produce experiences of ourselves. When we remain unaware of our “true nature” as a higher, creative being, we experience life as happening “to us” instead of “by us”. We feel we have no real power over what happens and what path our life takes as a result. This is because while we’re associated into the subconscious, we lack the ability to create, just like animals lack the ability to determine their reality which serves to create them instead.

In order to create in an intentional manner, we need to form an understanding of the 3-fold nature of our mind, how each aspect functions in creating a greater whole, and the significance of parallel planes of a higher and lower nature. In order to form a working understanding of something we have to use a model in order to conceptualize it. The model we form in order to “observe something in action” is not the knowledge or idea itself, but rather a demonstration of how spiritual forces serve to create through material systems that are of a complementary and corresponding nature. We have to understand what aspect of our mind plays what role in creating a unified experience of reality. Many errors come from not assigning the proper roles to the different aspects and planes on which they operate.

One of the most basic mistakes we make comes from thinking that our lower, animal subconscious is what possesses “will” and that in order to make something happen we have to produce it through some form of determination and working against what comes as purely natural events. Anytime we’re struggling to try and make something happen contrary to the current conditions and circumstances, we’re working “against” or in contradiction of natural laws. All universal laws correspond to natural laws, and all creation comes through purely natural processes. When we work by way of universal laws to create, everything comes into fruition through a process of synchronized events that seem to come naturally through their own volition. This doesn’t mean that no action on our part is required, but instead reveals the “type” and “nature” of the action required.

Three Aspects of the Mind Working on Two Parallel Planes

The 3-fold principle of the mind/soul is illustrated in Sacred Geometry by the Triad as a triangle or pyramid. This diagram illustrates how our mind operates harmoniously between two fundamental planes of existence, often referred to as the “higher and lower plane” of the same reality which acts to unify them into a single reality. If we draw a horizontal line about 3/4 of the way up the triangle, we form the “capstone” of the pyramid as the higher plane and the mind of that plane which exists in a unified (single) state. As the “one mind” descends into the lower plane, it separates from itself, dividing and regenerating itself to form two aspects of itself as polar opposites that are complementary in nature and necessary in order to create an “experience of itself” as another.

Duality is required in order to produce the “appearance” of a self and another, an inner and outer, and as the means of acquiring “knowledge” of yourself which only comes through experience. The Astral Plane represents the plane of “knowledge” that’s only acquired through experience. We descend into a body that’s located within time and in a specific set of conditions and circumstances, forming an inner self and outer world necessary in order to “experience” ourselves “as” certain qualities expressed through a specific personality. This law is represented by the primary Law of the Monad, which is represented as a dot within a sphere. The dot is concentrated energy that produces the appearance of an outer reality as a holographic projection or emanation.

All material manifestation is comprised of “light” as photons which exist simultaneously as “both” a particle and wave. Our entire outer reality is a projection of our own mind on a higher level, and is contained fully within our higher mind as a “mental construct”. What we refer to as the “mind” is the “organizing principle” that “charges” matter of the material plane with a “frequency” that has both a pattern and self-organizing mechanism inherent in it that acts to organize light into “coherent fields of consciousness” as a harmonious unification of polar energies.

The mind operates through a hierarchical structure as ordered planes of existence that vary in density as different frequencies that vibrate at different rates and modes, similar to a musical scale of octaves. The Human soul of the higher mind exists on a “higher” plane than the lower mind of the material body, and is the aspect that orders, organizes and animates the entire lower one, forming a “singularity”. It oversees and orchestrates all the activities of the “entire” lower plane, and is the aspect that causes new formations on the material plane through an act of “will”. All of what we call “willpower” as the ability to “create” is conducted by our self on a higher plane and comes by way of the “whole reality” through a natural sequence of correlated events. It brings change as a harmonious movement of the entire material reality by introducing new ideas into the subconscious of our own lower mind that’s also shared with all of humanity and the Natural world of the Earth’s plane. What we call “oneness” of the material world is due to the fact that we all share the same “group mind” of the subconscious.

Within the material plane of formation, the subconscious is the aspect that produces a material manifestation out of “ideas” that it’s given by the higher mind. The subconscious is the feminine aspect of the mind that conceives of the ideas projected into it by the masculine aspect, and gestates it through a process that adapts it harmoniously with the current conditions and circumstances and births it as a material manifestation. As an idea is formed internally and magnetized with sensation and emotion, it forms into a pattern used for organizing the outer sphere of reality to be of the same idea and produces a certain “type” of experience as a metaphorical correspondence of that idea.

As the unified mind of the upper, causal plane divides itself in order to regenerate in the lower plane, it still exists in a polar state of equilibrium, and comes into the material body as the subconscious pregnant with the self-conscious, which it births through a process of adaptation, growth, and development. The self-conscious aspect of the mind is latent within the subconscious as its potential for self-creation within the body. In our initial state as a child only our subconscious is active and creating and we develop naturally as a part of our family and immediate environment. We’re born into an unconscious state where we lack all awareness of our true self which is what’s creating our entire material reality as an experience of ourselves within a certain matrix of dynamic relationships. The self-conscious is birthed spontaneously as a growth process where we “come into ourselves” and begin forming our identity as we mature and become an adult.

It’s the feminine aspect of our subconscious that’s a part of the Earth’s Soul of material reality and is the aspect of ourselves that “manifests” an idea as an outer experience of reality. While the subconscious is the powerhouse of the material plane and organizes our outer reality to be metaphorically the same as our inner reality, it lacks the inherent ability to think rationally, make decisions, and intentionally “seed itself” with a “new idea” to create as a reality. It births the rational self-conscious aspect as its own masculine counterpart that has the ability to reason, analyze, and make decisions based on its own calculations. The masculine, self-conscious mind has the ability to “seed” its own feminine aspect with its decisions, but it’s often almost completely unaware of how to do it. The subconscious only “takes in” and manifests the ideas given to it by the self-conscious which it then communicates to the higher mind.

 Our self-conscious, which is the self-aware aspect that perceives the outer creation of our subconscious, draws all its ideas as thoughts from within the group mind of the collective unconscious and forms most all of our “thoughts” from whatever we’ve been taught, and acts out whatever “relationship dynamics” we’ve been conditioned to in an automatic fashion. Most of our thoughts come automatically and are formed out of memories of some kind. When we rely on this aspect of our conscious mind, we simply create by seeding our subconscious over and over with memories of the past, and we use our creative power to create more of the past in the present.

Our self-conscious perceives the outer world created by our own subconscious and creates experiences of ourselves through the reality of our own making. This aspect, which is birthed fully within the physical body and experiences itself as the “personality” of the body, doesn’t realize that it’s also an aspect of a higher mind and is bestowed with the ability to create itself and its reality in whatever way it wants, and instead usually lives out its entire life from within a primarily unconscious state. This aspect of the mind gains “realization” of its own creation as the outer correspondence to its own inner thoughts and has the ability to make “new decisions” about how it wants to experience itself. As we gain new realizations about ourselves through our self-created experiences, they serve the purpose of making us self-aware and we can learn how to modify them through the active decision to work with our own thoughts.

Both masculine aspects of the same mind require the feminine aspect they share in order to actively create in new ways. The active requires the equivalent passive component to act as a “receiver”. The subconscious is the “medium” through which the active components of the upper and lower mind communicate with one another. As we make a new decision for what we want to actively create and experience, we shape that idea into a possible reality in our imagination (womb), where it’s communicated to the higher mind of Will. As the higher mind receives the sensory image as a “metaphor” for creating, it then injects that idea into the subconscious of the Earth’s plane, where it’s organized into a sequence of correlated events that bring it about naturally as an inherent part of our outer reality. But when it begins formulating as a corresponding part of our outer reality we have to recognize it as such, and make more decisions to “act on it”. As the ideas that we “request” through decisions begin formulating we have to resist the habitual tendency to discount them or blow them off as not being what we wanted and enter into a metaphorical relationship with them by actively engaging in their continued creation.

In a similar fashion, our higher mind is always injecting archetypal ideas into our subconscious as a means of administering karma as universal justice. These come as mental impressions that form inner visions of a particular type of experience that don’t come from memories obtained in this lifetime. When visions come as an inner voice out of nowhere, where nothing externally served to produce it, we’re given insight into what’s coming so we can prepare for it. These events seem to come outside of or in spite of our conscious decisions sometimes, because they’re providing us with the flip-side of our own actions from a previous time and life. This allows us to realize that what we perceive as another is actually our “self” as an expanded version. Our perception of others and reality is actually an extension of our self as we exist on a higher level of unity. We’re always acting “on ourselves” through our perception of our self as another.

There’s only One of Us

As we begin realizing this, we start waking up to the true nature of things and begin creating in a more responsible and compassionate way. Whatever we “do to another” we’re actually doing to ourselves on a higher level. In a unified state all creation comes as “patterns” produced through a “cause and effect relationship” where we play every role in creating a “holistic experience of our Self”. Our entire outer reality is produced as a correspondence to our inner reality. Everything that we do in the outer world through activity of some kind, we first do inwardly by thinking about it and running the consequences it’ll produce through our mind, making a decision of some kind regarding it. When we act in a compulsive and automatic way without thinking, we’re then provided with the “realization” of what we created while in an unconscious state through the choices and actions we took. This provides us with feedback that allows us to modify our process until we produce the results we intended to.

By reflecting on our life and grasping the full ramifications of the “cause and effect relationship” between being and doing, we can begin making the adjustments necessary to create in a more conscious and purposeful way. Once we begin realizing that no one is actually doing anything “to us”, but are simply stimulating us in a way that causes us to do it to ourselves, first as our thoughts and emotions, and then as our outward actions, we can begin seeing and realizing that we are the ones who are in fact creating our life to be the way it is, and we can make new decisions for ourselves that we administer by how we seed our own imagination. We can begin learning how to create from a self-aware and awake state. As we begin realizing that our outer world is comprised of our own psychological aspects, most of which we’re unaware of, we can gain tremendous insights into our own psyche and unhealed aspects of ourselves, and act on ourselves in a precise and deliberate manner to correct our own errors.

 Once we understand the dynamic nature of our own mind and how we create experiences of ourselves, we’re provided with the tools as universal laws for turning an unconscious process into a conscious and fully self-aware process of creation. As we gain self-realization through the outer mirror of our own inner mind, we learn the lesson it provides, and we begin developing our ability to use our mind in a much more proficient and deliberate way. We can use all of our experiences to become aware of our unconscious tendencies, and bring them into a harmonious state as a result. Through self-realization of our outer awareness as a mirror of our inner self, we can become conscious creators of our own life journey. We can learn how to utilize every aspect of our mind to produce a unified whole as the harmonious synchronization of all aspects of ourselves. As we wake up to our true self and creative abilities, we enter into our higher consciousness and perceive reality as a whole conducted from a higher plane of “true” self-awareness and realization.

How we unknowingly act as the means for Promoting Mass Propaganda

There’s always a very fundamental form of paradox playing out in terms of what we focus on and think about, and what we act to participate in co-creating as a result. In reality, there’s no such thing as “fighting against” something as a means of creating its opposite or what acts as a solution that’s designed to remedy it somehow. The “war against drugs” campaign only acted to produce more drug use. MADD – mother against drunk drivers – only produced more drunk drivers. Horror stories that saturated the media of “leaking breast implants” caused an enormous surge in women who opted for fake breasts.

Whenever we act to promote and distribute what we “oppose” and are trying to resolve or eliminate, we’re actually acting to co-create and expand. This is because we fail to understand the most basic principle of our own mind and how it operates to produce reality. As a general rule, whatever we focus on with emotional intensity of any kind, good or bad, we steadily move into, produce behaviors out of, and act to create more experiences of the same nature. Whatever we “think about” in a consistent manner we develop into a detailed reality in our mind, and it becomes a kind of “creative directive” for our subconscious to connect with in the outer environment and create more of.

While we can think we’re acting to “inform” and make people aware of the problems, what we may be actually doing is acting as a form of “distribution mechanism” that promotes and propagates the very idea we’re “against”. By looking at the laws governing our own mind, we can come to realize how it works and begin using it in a natural and productive way to create in a more conscious and deliberate manner.

Vesica Pisces – the Womb of Creation

The Relationship of Complementary Opposites

Our material mind has two basic components – the subconscious and self-conscious – that work in tandem with each other to produce what we experience as a unified reality. While many have very little actual awareness of their subconscious (commonly called the “unconscious” mind), it’s actually the powerhouse of the two, especially in terms of producing realities as an experience. The subconscious is what we can think of as the feminine aspect of the mind that’s seeded by the masculine aspect of the self-aware mind, and together produce a consistent experience of both self and the reality of the self.

The self-conscious mind is the aspect most are aware of and is what forms all of our perceptions as an awareness of the outer world (which is actually produced by the subconscious), and forms an “interpretation” of all outer events to give them meaning. The self-conscious is the aspect that possesses the power of choice and selects what we focus on, think about, and make conscious decisions about what to do and what not to do. It has the ability to reason and evaluate ideas and situations, and forms interpretations in terms of what’s good or bad, right or wrong, and plays out the scenarios produced by possible decisions to see what their consequences would be as the means of making intelligent decisions. This is what we call the active component that acts as the “gatekeeper” for the subconscious, which is the passive component, and acts to “seed” the subconscious with whatever it decides it “wants” to create.

The subconscious is the passive and receptive (feminine) aspect that lacks the ability to analyze and make decisions, or evaluate the moral nature of things. It doesn’t work out of ideas of right and wrong, and simply takes whatever idea the self-conscious (masculine) “gives it” by concentrating and dwelling in it repeatedly. The subconscious gives an idea life by magnetizing it (animal magnetism) and causing it to begin vibrating as a frequency that has the idea as a pattern inherent in it, along with a self-organizing mechanism that acts to organize all information available outside of us into the same metaphorical pattern. This forms what’s referred to as the “Law of Attraction”, which is more scientifically referred to as “resonance”.

The subconscious is “experiential” in nature (which means it doesn’t think in abstract terms), and is “impregnated with ideas” that are thought about in detail and turned into a direct experience as the reality of the idea. It operates in an automatic and repetitive fashion through “memory” as an experience of reality that provides it with a form of template as a metaphor for producing a consistent experience of reality. Because an actual memory and an imagined experience are both produced in the same way by “imagining them” (turning ideas into internal representations), it doesn’t know the difference (can’t discriminate and logically evaluate) between an actual memory and an imagined one, and uses them equally to produce corresponding realities of the same nature and kind.

The subconscious is emotionally driven and readily takes in any strong emotional charge being transmitted and projected and shapes it into a possible reality in the imagination by referencing memories of the same emotion. All of what we can think of as our “actual life memories”, the ones that can easily be recalled and are used in a continuous fashion to create more life experiences of the same nature, was all formed out of events that produced a strong emotion. They were the events that had a strong impact on us in some way.

Memories are used by the subconscious to produce instant perceptions, automatic behaviors as a reaction, and are referenced through association to emotional states. Whatever emotion is activated in us, determines what memories we access in reference to it, and what type of reaction we form. The way to produce a calculated behavior out of someone is by using the proper emotion that produces correlating and predictable behaviors. While the nature of the thought themselves are unique to each individual, emotions are universal and always produce the same “type” of behaviors.

 We work to influence any size group of people by choosing the idea we “want them to create” and attach a strong emotion to it in terms of how we “present it”, then amplifying it by sensationalizing it, talking about it (reporting) repeatedly, forming the idea as a reality in their mind. Whatever image we form in our imagination that’s attached to a strong emotion is the “seed” as a directive for the subconscious to produce “more of” as an experience. You can’t form an idea in the imagination of the subconscious, and then tell it “not to think about it”. It doesn’t have the ability to decide. The emotional image itself “is” the directive for creating as a reality. The “sensory reality” is the seed of creation.

The sensationalized idea forms filters as a perceptual lens that filters out everything that’s of a different nature, so that we only perceive around us what’s of the same reality as the one we gave it by imagining it with intensity. In this way it orders all information as possibilities in the outer world to match the inner one. While we have a tendency to think that the outer reality is separate from us and apart from our inner thoughts and imaginings, they’re actually an “extension” of each other. The outer world is produced as a projection of the inner world as our perception. Reality as we can know it only exists through our ability to perceive it. We reshape all matter to be of the same nature (inner) and likeness (metaphorical idea) as we are.

When news articles, scientific studies, videos, movies, songs, etc., are produced that induce a feeling of fear, hatred, or moral disgust, they act as a “hook” for our attention, and the more graphic and sensationalized they are, the more we obsess over them. Once we focus on them and think about them by building them into a sensory reality, we can’t seem to stop thinking about them. By continuing to think about them with emotional intensity we literally program ourselves with them where they become a natural part of our memories. We can recall them with vivid clarity, and think about them in a random fashion based on association. Once an idea is planted in our mind, it becomes a natural part of our memory base that forms our perception of reality. Once we clearly “see it” and experience it internally, it becomes a fundamental part of reality itself.

While we think this is a good thing because it promotes awareness as to what’s “really going on” so that we can avoid it, stop it, or act to contradict it, what’s actually happening is we’re being conditioned to participate in creating that reality as a form of “mass consciousness” while playing a role in how it functions. We vibrate at that frequency and attract to us more realities of the same nature, while being drawn into them as a relationship that’s connected by the same emotional state. Our mind shapes realities and brings them to life inside as a vibratory frequency. All vibration has an idea as a pattern inherent in it.

All ideas have an emotion married to them that not only becomes a fundamental part of our reality, but we also “behave” in a way that validates it and participates in co-creating it. We act “unconsciously” to initiate, promote, increase, intensify, and produce more of it. We talk about it, interjecting it into the mind of others, who likewise picture it in their mind as a reality, and they begin cooperating in co-creating it with us. We then act to “share information”, post it on social media repeatedly, and distribute it through whatever networks we’re a part of, and it becomes an inherent part of mass consciousness as a joint and mutually created reality that we all share in common. We become their method of distributing propaganda, and the means through which it becomes real.

As we play a role in co-creating certain types of reality by actively programming our own subconscious with them, we begin identify with them by sensing ourselves within that reality. Any event that seems to be happening on a mass scale usually gives us a feeling of having no power to “fight against” it or oppose it by resisting it, and tends to leave us feeling powerless and hopeless as a result. Once we feel hopeless to change things, we become a victim, and succumb to them by giving up and conforming. We comply and allow them to control and regulate us by lending them our will to create their desired reality. We readily absorb, adapt to, and become a part of the reality they present us with. We act to develop it into an actual reality as a belief that we then use to program our own subconscious by saying, here, give me more of this as an experience . . . and it does. The subconscious is a faithful servant of the willful mind, and gives birth to whatever it desires.

Learning to operate our own Mind and Will

When we learn how to use both aspects of our mind to skillfully create, we can act “on ourselves” to program ourselves with the reality we want to create. The analytical mind (self-conscious) can become aware of the “problem” and see the covert actions going on behind the scenes, and sense the true motivation behind them, without forming them into detailed emotional realities in the mind’s eye. We can detach from the emotion being used to present an idea, and tune instead to the “actual reality” as an objective and neutral event. It’s the “emotional content” that replaces objective reality with an illusion as a sensationalized idea that distorts it.

It’s the emotion that acts to control us and is the “formative” component that reshapes the actual event into an experience that acts to multiply, intensify, and produce more of the same type of emotion through the reality we create of it in our imagination. Fear paralyzes us, causes us to freeze and not take action, and we begin catering to the fear itself. Fear is one of the most powerful control mechanisms there are. Hatred causes us to form evil thoughts about each other that cause us to lash out, attack, and violently annihilate each other. It’s a very effective means of dividing and isolating whole sectors of the population, setting them against each other as enemies. It’s a strategic maneuver to “divide and conquer”, by getting us to kill each other.  

The self-conscious mind of outer awareness thinks and evaluates in objective terms that can conceptualize ideas in terms of what consequences they produce without distorting them with emotions. Once it “perceives” the objective reality in an idea, it uses that information to make a decision about it. Once it decides what action to take, or what reality would contradict and resolve the one it’s decided against, it then directs all attention to the reality it “wants” to create in its place.

It turns it into a vivid and detailed reality by imagining it as an actual reality that already exists. It embellishes it with intense sensory attributes that act to naturally invoke very positive and pleasure oriented emotions. It forms in the mind’s eye the solution to the problem, rather than the problem itself. Pleasure produces desire, and desire is a gravitational force that seeks to unite with the object of its desire. Pain, suffering, and stress cause us to repel, avoid, and move away from whatever is causing the pain. So solutions and whatever it is we want to create in an intentional manner must be presented in a way that’s pleasurable and enjoyable. Otherwise we avoid, push to the background, and don’t take action on the very thing we say we want.

As we focus on the desired reality we want to create while forming it in our imagination as a pleasurable and meaningful experience, we program ourselves unconsciously to produce an outer reality of the same type and kind. If we communicate that to others as an emotional expression, they form the same idea in their mind and embellish it with the same emotions and sensations, and begin serving to create it as a joint reality. If we share, re-post, write, describe, draw, and act as the means for transmitting the idea that counteracts and resolves the problem, at some point in time, the problem will no longer exist because we won’t be acting to create it. Mass reality is formed through a kind of “numbers game” as the “group mind”. All true power lies in numbers.

As we produce an idea as an imagined reality and embellish it with positive emotions, we begin taking steady action towards producing it. We begin gravitating towards it and move into it where it becomes a natural part of our outer experience. We use the complementary aspect of our own mind to produce the reality of our choice, rather than allowing ourselves to be used by others. We use the masculine aspect to protect and decide what’s allowed in and what’s kept out, as the means of impregnating the feminine aspect, which acts naturally to produce the physical reality of whatever it’s seeded with.

Just allow yourself to notice that whatever you focus on, think about with intensity, imagine as a sensory reality, talk about, communicate, and share as a post, you are acting as the means for transmitting and co-creating it. You become the channel through which an idea is made manifest. Whatever you align yourself with you become “like” in essence. Whatever emotions you cultivate by how you think and what you focus on becomes the nature of your experiences of reality that serve to give you more of the same emotion.

The rational, logical, reasoning, and analytical mind is the aspect that evaluates, measures, discriminates between right and wrong, and makes decisions that are void of emotion and sensation, and therefore not “based on an illusion”. Once it decides what to create, either through a calculated decision or through a process of natural selection, it then gives the idea to the subconscious as a full sensory reality that acts to naturally elicit the emotion that will determine the nature of the experience created. It will take the emotionally intense, imagined reality, project it outwards, and systematically produce it as a corresponding reality of the same nature, feeling, and emotion. Pay close attention to what you “allow” into your imagination and what emotions you give free reign to within you, because they will ultimately serve to determine you.

Understanding the Psychological Basis of our Spiritual Quest

       One of the most fundamental truths that we need to honestly comprehend in order to learn how to consciously create our self and our life, is in realizing the true relationship between the mind and body. While there’s a fundamental misconception that the body somehow “gives rise to” the mind, partially due to the fact that there are three basic aspects of the mind and soul, one of which is oriented to what we call “body consciousness” as our subconscious, the fact is the mind is what produces and maintains the life of the body. The body, including the brain and heart, and all “matter” for that fact, is comprised of light (photons) that’s organized into a physical form producing a “house or temple” for the mind as the soul to inhabit and use in order to express, create, and evolve itself to higher and lower levels of consciousness. Matter as the body is passive and receptive in nature, and acts to draw in and bond with the energetic essence of the mind through resonance.

       The mind, like the soul (which is synonymous) isn’t a fixed form like the body it inhabits, but is a living, breathing field of energy that’s constantly evolving and reformulating itself by absorbing and integrating energy of a similar nature to it from the atmosphere around it and from parallel planes of both a higher and lower nature. The mind sets the vibratory frequency of the body, which acts as a tuner, receiver, transducer, and transmitter of energy as knowledge and ideas of various sorts. We’re designed to “receive knowledge” based on what quality as a state of mind we embody and become. We tune into and merge with planes of knowledge through resonance by becoming “like” the qualities as consciousness of that plane.

       Our state of mind is something that we have the ability to regulate and determine by learning how to use the different aspects of our mind to regulate other aspects. Our mind works “on itself” to produce the experience of itself as a whole reality. The subconscious of the body doesn’t have the ability to become self-aware and gain intuitive realizations about itself, then actively decide what state it’s going to produce in order to act as a conduit for specific and selected types of knowledge, but simply acts instead as a passive receiver and vehicle for the higher, conscious aspect of the mind. It will readily absorb, become one with, and actualize as a reality whatever “idea” is acting to “impregnate it”. This aspect of the mind acts as a womb for suggestion given to it by an active (willful) mind, and produces the reality of the suggestion as an “experience” of it. It creates the idea first as an inner representation or imaginary reality that then becomes the metaphorical template as an organizing mechanism for producing as an outer reality of the same nature.

      When we remain unaware of how we’re programming ourselves or allowing ourselves to be programmed by others, we create ourselves in a random and haphazard way, usually without any real awareness of what we’re doing and how we’re doing it. This is why this aspect of the mind is referred to as “unconscious”. It lacks awareness in the most basic sense of the idea, and most importantly and awareness of its true nature as a creative, self-determining being. This is the aspect of the mind we share with the animal kingdom that’s driven purely by instinct as emotionally motivated behavior born out of conditioning and whatever we’ve been “trained” to as children. When we live out of emotions and the imaginary dramas they produce, we use our creative power to create ourselves according to the will and illusions of others. As long as we remain unconscious of our own power to create, we live in a constant reactive state where we act to “absorb and assimilate” all the emotions of others being transmitted in near proximity of us without any resistance or apparent ability to redirect them.

The Relationship between Thought and Emotion

       All of life exists as a dynamic series of intimate relationships that work together to “create realities” as varying planes of existence unified into a coherent idea. Thought and emotions are complementary opposites that play off each other in order to produce an experience of reality as a coherent and cohesive idea. They both exist as a part of what we call the astral plane of formation, which, like all parallel planes operate through a form of hierarchy as an up and down, back and forth, in and out movement. In the astral plane (atmosphere of star (sun) light), which precedes the material plane and serves as a kind of spatial map for organizing the material matrix, we have upper and lower regions as a range of vibration. The upper can be viewed as thought which forms light into shapes and scenarios, and the lower is comprised of emotion which is the formative and motivational force of thought.

      Thought as “form” provides the empty shell as a kind of metaphor that spirit inhabits, and emotions determine the behaviors the thought-form takes on. When we’re oriented from the higher regions descending into the lower, thought is causal in nature and acts to naturally invoke its complementary emotion, using it to create in a precise and deliberate manner. When oriented from the lower region of emotion ascending upward, the emotion gives rise to and determines the nature of thoughts that are associated with it. One is always married to the other as a means of creating a singular experience of reality. When we allow emotions to dominate us, they control our thoughts and run our imagination, rendering our higher nature a servant to our lower, unconscious nature. When reversed, we control and determine our thoughts and regulate our emotional state, rendering it a servant to our higher, conscious, and creative nature.

       This is why cleansing ourselves of all negativity and purifying our mind and soul are a fundamental part of all spiritual and creative development. Whatever “state” we cultivate and maintain determines what plane of knowledge we tune ourselves to and experience as our perception of reality. A negative, lower vibration of pain and destruction (hate, anger, vindictiveness, jealousy, sadness, etc.) keeps us imprisoned in that reality, which we ourselves are acting to create. All qualities have whole planes of knowledge associated with them. Anger tunes us into the knowledge of that plane, where we act to propagate and multiply anger by creating consistent experiences that express and feed our anger.

       Whatever quality and emotional state we embody and allow to take hold within us (whether unconsciously or with awareness), we become in spirit (mind), and we “exist” on that level of reality while continuously acting “on ourselves” to produce more of those type of experiences. As we produce consistent types of experiences they become our memories and build up through an accumulative process, and become our soul’s constitution as the blueprint we use for creating ourselves and more realities of the same nature. We become the channel for expressing anger by becoming it in mind and body, condemning ourselves to a life of constant pain and suffering. When we do this to ourselves we live in our lower, unconscious, and unaware mind as we’re being created by others and our own reaction to imaginary illusions about ourselves and others.

      Anytime we’re reacting (emotionally) we’re lending our will to be created by whatever is causing the reaction, and creating ourselves “as” our lower nature. As we take on the emotions of others that act to awaken and feed those same emotions in us, we act on ourselves in an aware manner to tune our mind to produce realities that express the emotion and “give us more of it”. Whatever we become one with in mind and body we tune and bond ourselves too energetically. All “states of mind” are associated with spheres of knowledge that act naturally to produce the reality of that state. In order to change our reality and the nature of our experiences, we need to change our state of mind as a “quality of consciousness”. This requires self-awareness, consciously making new decisions, and using our will to discipline ourselves to a new way of being.

Observing our own Mind and Tendencies

         As human beings, we employ emotions as the means of creating without realizing the consequences we draw upon ourselves. Heaven and hell aren’t “places” in terms of how we tend to think about them; they’re “states of mind” as the reality we create out of that state. This is very easy to realize by simply observing the difference between your perception, how you feel, and how you interpret things to create your experience of them while in an angry or resentful state as opposed to an inspired or loving state. How we perceive and experience the same event or situation is completely different based on what mood we’re in at the time. Whatever mood you’re in determines what you focus on, think about, what memories run through your mind, how you see others, your attitude, and how you act.

       Emotions only exist in the lower planes of the unconscious as instinct designed to produce behaviors that are automatic and engaged in without awareness or the need to consciously evaluate them. They are projected and transmitted through the astral plane (atmosphere) as an energetic charge. They’re ‘infectious’ because we ‘absorb’ and take them on without directly realizing it and let them ‘run us’ by triggering memories that we use as a form of thematic template for forming our thoughts. As we unconsciously take on an emotion and form the inner reality of the emotion, we ‘tune ourselves’ energetically to the reality and actions of those emotions. Through our emotional states we become a predictable part of the ‘group mind’ which determines how we form our thoughts about ourselves and others as the reenactment of our “formative conditioning” as children and the ‘suggestions’ we’re constantly allowing into our mind that are given to us by others.

      Once we realize the true nature and purpose of emotions, we can resist taking them on while intentionally acting on ourselves to control and redirect our own thinking and cultivate a positive state and the reality instead. The most basic form of self-control comes from learning how to regulate our own emotional states. All “qualities” as a “way of being” have planes of knowledge associated to them that produce our perception of reality as the basis for creating our experiences. In order to access ‘higher planes’ of reality we must first act on ourselves to cultivate and consistently maintain an ‘exalted (virtuous) state’. In order to step into our divine nature as a self-aware creative being we have to become like the beings of that plane. We have to move out of a constant state of unconscious reaction to one where we’re conscious and proactive. We have to move from being unconsciously created by others to becoming consciously created by ourselves in an intentional and precise manner.

Vibratory Hierarchies as Perceptual Filters and Self-Organizing Processes

       States, planes, spheres, realms, worlds, kingdoms, and dimensions all exist in a hierarchical flow from higher to lower, and from lower to higher vibration. All vibration has patterns as informational structures that form and animate whole realities. Through the Law of Vibration, sympathetic induction (absorption), and coherence (integration to form a new vibration), a kind of filtering process takes place where different aspects of the same group of information are made passive and active (turned on and off), forming new combinations as an altered or modified configuration of the same thing (theme). The elements involved remain the same, but they’re arranged and reformulated to form a new version as a complementary pattern or living offspring. Everyone who is a part of the same event or situation experiences it in a unique way and tells a different account of it based on their state of mind at the time and what they noticed and emphasized and what they ignored and left out. We all take the same group of shared information and abstract only specific aspects that can be formed into the reality of our mental paradigm. We’re always taking what we can think of as a universal idea and re-organizing it to form a personalized version of the same basic nature.

        We can only move from ‘one plane to another’ (between planes) through resonance. By becoming of the same nature as the qualities (pattern of being) inherent in that plane, we’re spontaneously ‘absorbed’ into it as a form of energetic intake. When two frequencies are similar in nature and tuned to the same master key, they serve to activate each other where one enters into and blends with the other, influencing both to form an altered vibration through a form of synchronization. Once united as the same thing, the vibration of both is altered and they begin vibrating in harmony with each other as a new state. Lower levels can’t access higher levels directly because they’re not similar enough to each other, and therefore a medium is required as the equilibrating point between them that can act to absorb one, integrate and assimilate it to become close enough in proximity to the other that it can be drawn up into the lowest regions of the higher plane.

       All planes (dimensions) have a “range of vibration” as a graduation from lower regions of the same frequency to higher regions in the same way a musical scale of seven notes acts to form an octave as an accumulation or “whole scale”. The “accumulative affect” of the lower frequency (plane) in its higher range, becomes similar enough to the lower frequency of the next higher plane that it can be “drawn” into it. Our vibration as a frequency is produced by how we consistently create and accumulate experiences of a certain type that serve to form our memories, all of which are born out of our natural mental and emotional states.

      As we move from a lower vibration to a higher one a filtering process takes place as a kind of refinement. The destructive, negative, and delusional ideas of the lower, emotional and unconscious nature can’t naturally move into the reality of the higher, positive, and constructive plane of a fully awake and self-aware mind. As long as we remain unaware of our true creative power as conscious and divine beings, we condemn ourselves to the life of illusion created out of our emotional states. As long as our emotions run us and we use our will to create the reality of others through a reactive state, we keep ourselves confined to a mortal and unconscious existence as an intelligent animal that’s easy to train. We remain in the reality of pain and suffering that we’re acting on ourselves unknowingly to create.

Self-Enslavement

       We’re all enslaved by our own mind and how we’ve been trained to use it. When we cultivate and consistently live out of fear and anxiety of some kind, we act on ourselves to condemn ourselves to a life of constant fearful thoughts and suggestions that only serve to produce more experiences of fear and anxiety. It’s up to us to work on intentionally changing our own mental state. No one else can do it for us. We keep ourselves tuned to the reality of our feelings, emotions, and unconscious (habitual) thoughts. Just as our higher soul acts as the medium between higher forms of consciousness and lower forms of unconsciousness (instinct), our body-soul acts as the medium for absorbing and expressing the emotions and consciousness within the material plane through a form of horizontal movement between the inner and outer as our self and another.

       What we now think of as the Human race was originally created as the combination of higher and lower beings in order to produce slaves as a workforce. We were bred in an experimental way in order to produce a being intelligent enough to do the work, yet easy to control and give direction, with no philosophy of our own. When we’re “in” our lower, animal nature (which is primarily an unconscious state) we lack self-awareness in the most basic sense, and the higher capacities of reason. We often lack the confidence and executive faculties necessary to make decisions for ourselves and exercise our will in order to consciously create. There’s a complete lack of awareness as to our higher nature as divine, god-like beings, and we simply live out of whatever emotional states and dynamics we’ve been conditioned with and continue to act as a magnet for.

       We become a servant to the will of what we imagine to be higher, supreme and authoritative beings. We’re taught to worship other human beings of a higher and more conscious nature as “Gods”. While in our normal and somewhat unconscious state, we simply absorb the suggestions (thoughts) and emotions given to us through the projections of others, and allow them to take control of our will where we cooperatively create the reality they want us to. While in our lower nature we lack any real sense of purpose in realizing our own ability to consciously create ourselves. Whatever state we exist in determines what plane and type of reality we use our mind to create.

The 3rd-Eye, Pineal Gland, and the Subconscious Mind – The Gateway to the Heavens

Every biological life-form there is has both a physical form and an invisible energy field (soul or mind) that’s also known as it’s etheric-double or mirror image that serves to “inform” and animate it with a specific set of instinctual behaviors and tendencies. The material body is formed out of the mineral kingdom and is primarily made out of liquid crystalline structure that serves as the passive component of consciousness, which is its life-giving, active component. The primary law of the mind, soul, and self, is represented in Sacred Geometry as a sphere with an invisible center (represented by a dot) called the Monad. This also represents the most basic principle of light (photons) as being of a dual nature, and exists simultaneously as both a particle and a wave. This tells us that there’s no meaningful way to separate the body from the mind, because they’re ultimately the same thing at different degrees of density, and as a form of “step-down process” of vibration between multiple planes. This model, the basic model of all life, operates through what we call a “local” and “non-local” mind in quantum physics, that also demonstrates that it’s possible for a particle, which is a subtle body, to be located in two places at once within the greater field of which it’s a part. The principle of energetic entanglement demonstrates that any two particles “born together” (cellular division as regeneration) continue to function as a single entity no matter how far apart they appear in space or time. They are polarized as a “state” (frequency), and if you change the state of one, the other changes instantaneously in exactly the same way.

What we refer to as the “3rd-Eye” is the subtle body of the Pineal gland, and is what operates the Pineal to produce a physical effect within the body and material plane as the manifestation of ideas that it acts as the receiver for. The Pineal is an oval, pine cone shaped organ that’s filled with crystal rods and cones (much like physical eyes and ears) that float in a crystalline fluid, and has a protruding rod or finger at one end that “vibrates” or wobbles when it’s “active”. The Pineal emanates and projects an electromagnetic field that creates a form of “invisible shield” or sphere that encapsulates it in an egg-shaped energy field that acts as the tuner for drawing in other electromagnetic fields vibrating at the same frequency. Fluid, as water of some form, is also crystalline in nature, though not as dense as solid crystal (water and earth used to be considered the same element in different states), and is what produces or is nearly always accompanied by salt or sand.  All crystals act as a natural tuner, receiver, battery, transmitter, and amplifier for energy as frequencies that are electromagnetic waves that carry information. Likewise, crystal and water also store information as memory, and are “chargeable” through various forms of mental uploads as thoughts, emotions, and intentions.

The Pineal is said to be the “seat of the soul” and is the point in the body where the soul, as a field of information (memory) or essence (coagulated energy), not only enters and leaves the body, but remains anchored and energetically bonded to the body throughout its lifetime, and is what serves to inform, animate, and regenerate the body, giving it life. The 3rd-eye and the pineal has been traditionally symbolized by what’s called the “axis mundi”, as the axis the world turns on and the place where gods (knowledge as living principles) come and go, and is often illustrated by the king or god standing on a mountain top. The soul of the body is what initially “in-forms” it as a base frequency that becomes the tuning mechanism for accessing that same frequency in the Ether or Universal Mind that surrounds it as the atmosphere and higher dimensions, and acts as a receiver that draws in (resonates with), absorbs (sympathetic induction), and integrates (assimilates) more of the same type of information.

While we tend to think (have been taught) that the brain itself gives rise to thought and produces consciousness, the fact may be that the brain, like the whole body, is more of a receiver and transducer for consciousness which “gives the brain and body” the thoughts as “seeded ideas” that it then thinks about and develops into realities as the experience of those thoughts. Because we “receive thoughts” in their potential state, and develop them through a process of adaptation and modification to form a unique version from a located and specific perspective within a given set of circumstances and conditions, we imagine our thoughts are our own creation and something we generate and produce on our own in an independent fashion. All reality is produced as an outer experience of an inner thought that comes as a unique combination of the universal and the individual that forms dynamic relationship. So while we are not the originator of our thoughts in the most basic sense, we are the one that develops the idea into a personalized and unique version and the co-creator of the reality it produces. This follows the idea that the “original creation” of the world was left unfinished, so we could finish it by exercising our creative abilities.

The pineal is shaped like the Vesica Pisces, which is also called the “Dyad” of Sacred Geometry, and represents the “womb of the universe” where two complementary opposites as a passive vessel and active force come together through resonance and sympathetic induction, joined by the same center or inner nature, and together form an “interference pattern” as the merging and overlapping of the two fields. These two fields act “on each other” to influence each other to form a new and altered vibration as a reality that’s a combination of both. Through a process of adaptation, qualities that are shared are amplified and enhanced, while qualities that contradict each other are cancelled out and neutralized, organizing it into a new pattern. This process operates by the same principle as the DNA of the body that takes two strands of information (male and female) and forms a new sequence by turning on some features, while turning off other ones, producing a variation that combines complementary qualities and characteristics to form a new variation as a unique and individual being. Through this same method, universal archetypes as a potential (unformed) idea is used as a template to form a personal creation as a specific and well-defined version of that idea, altering the original vibration and forming coherence as a new pattern and offspring of the original idea.

The 3rd-Eye is also represented by a triangle or pyramid with a single eye in the center, also called the “Eye of Horus”, who was the son of Isis and Osiris. The upper tip of the triangle is the single exalted point formed between two lower points as their unification or unique combination. In the process of synthesis, two or more ideas are combined to produce a “system” that functions in a much more complex and proficient way. The Law of the Trinity (truine nature of the soul and mind) demonstrates that every single entity is formed out of two complementary aspects (feminine and masculine) that combine different qualities from each one to produce a unique variation that functions in new ways. In order for an existing system to grow and evolve into something more or different, new attributes and qualities need to be introduced that are close enough to the original that they can be readily absorbed and utilized to produce a new and upgraded version.  All evolution takes place through diversity that’s congruently absorbed into the existing system, and acts to re-inform it, giving it new attributes and qualities by “turning them on”, while switching others ones off, forming a new expression as a form of “death of the old and birth of the new”, as a basic form of self-regeneration.

All shapes and structures give us clues as to how something functions as an analogy. The pineal, shaped like a pine cone, which is loaded with seeds that contain a multitude of “potential trees”, spontaneously opens to release those seeds through ripening, fire, pressure, or heat. Fire and heat (light) causes an expansion (pressure) that opens and releases the seeds as ideas in their potential state. The Element of Fire is symbolic of the higher will, and like the blazing Phoenix of transformation, death by fire is followed by rebirth from the ashes in a higher state of being. It’s only through the death of one aspect that another can be born in its place. The pineal, like the pine cone secrets a resin as DMT, historically referred to as the “Golden Elixir” of spiritual awakening and transformation, that’s the “key to ascension”. The word resin, when the vowels are reversed, spells “risen”, and is the method by which we rise and transcend to higher dimensions. What’s referred to as “soul purification”, a necessary process for ascending to higher planes of existence, comes through a process of redemption where we act on ourselves to transform our weaknesses and character flaws into virtues and moral strengths.

DMT is the chemical hormone that produces the state necessary for us to experience other dimensions through an “out of body experience” where our consciousness operates outside of and independent of the body, which is why its associated with the “death experience” as consciousness freely moving into another dimension apart from the body. This is why the spontaneous visions as the experience that occurs during the near-death-experience, is associated with DMT and the pineal gland.  DMT is a psychoactive chemical as a “psychedelic” that produces what we call hallucinations that are in fact the direct experience of parallel dimensions that require a certain state-of-mind in order to experience. In near-death-experiences the soul leaves the body, rises above it and witnesses it as being dead, functioning independent of it, yet still within the same space and time (plane). When the soul “reenters the body”, it does so through the top of the head. It enters through the gateway of the body, the pineal, and the Vesica Pisces as the doorway between dimensions.

The Pineal, which is also referred to as the “Philosophers Stone”, symbolized by two serpents (masculine and feminine) wrapped around a stone that’s shaped like an egg. The two serpents represent the electromagnetic currents that move up the spine (33 steps of Jacobs’s ladder) to the Pineal, activating (energizing) it, as the “winged globe”, single eye that fills the body with light, or pine cone releasing its seeds, as spiritual rebirth. The Pineal regulates light and the cycles of time (arcadia rhythm), our sleep (dark) and wake (light) cycles, the procession of the Equinoxes (seasons as quadrants of a whole cycle of time), orientates us in space (navigation system), our “mood” as a general state of being, as well as the ages of humanity known as “eons”. An eon is a cycle of time after which humanity will experience an awakening as a phoenix-like transformation and will rise systematically to a higher level of consciousness.

The Pineal as the 3rd-Eye is the first point of contact for any form of intuitive, telepathic energy exchange, and is the basic method through which we receive information as “thoughts and ideas” that come to us from an outside source as images and sound. We hear a voice as inner thoughts or words that spontaneously produce an image as the meaning of the words, or we see an image or mental impression that forms our thoughts about it. The Pineal is the first place in the body that’s contacted by the “waters of spirit”, or the non-physical realm of the afterlife. Water is the medium of life as a universal conduit from one plane to another, and acts as the receiver for vibratory information as electromagnetic fields of information as words that program and impregnate it forming distinct patterns of the inherent nature of the frequency. Water absorbs and holds vibration as memory forming crystalline geometric patterns of the thoughts.

The story of the creation of the universe gives us this process in analogous terms as a scientific formula – “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and God moved across the waters with the Word, and called forth all living things”. The word as a sound frequency contains a pattern as an image formed by a self-organizing mechanism that shapes the word into a physical form in the imagination of the “mind’s eye”. All knowledge comes to us as thought in its seeded or potential state, and we shape it into an image as a living reality in our mind. The Vesica Pisces as the oval shaped womb gives birth to the triad as an inner imagined reality that becomes the basis as a template, formula, or blueprint for creating an outer or actual material reality of the same basic nature as a corresponding idea. The image comes through and is reflected on the electromagnetic sphere surrounding the Pineal where it’s viewed as a transparent image or image that’s being reflected on glass or a dark surface (magical mirror). The mind shapes light essence (astral substance) into form as a ghost-like image (etheric hologram), that seeds the subconscious and DNA of the body with that same idea as the “meaning” it represents. The mental image spontaneously emerges as an inner reflection of the meaning of the word. The outer reality that’s formed and organized as an event is a reflection of the inner reality as the expression of the same nature or meaning. It may not take on the exact same form (inner thoughts act as archetypes), but comes more as an analogy or correspondence to the imagined one based on what’s available in the immediate environment that’s used to form it. While the shape may be different, the feeling it gives us and the meaning it has are the same.

The Pineal, which can also be equated to intuition, works by receiving “whole ideas” as full knowledge of something that triggers a synchronized unfolding as a chain-of-association that spontaneously connects a multitude of ideas that are all of the same nature, frequency, and meaning. As we tune into the invisible, vibratory nature of material things, we act to absorb their energy which in turn forms mental impressions as symbolic ideas that unfold within our imagination, showing us its true inner nature. A whole idea comes to us as a form of inspiration and insight, and all we have to do is maintain a passive state in relation to it, allowing it to rise up in our mind, without trying to control or change it somehow, and simply watch it as it unfolds. The minute we begin interpreting it to make it “mean something” or begin judging it somehow, we distort it from its original form and begin reshaping it to be like us, and we no longer perceive it in objective or original terms as it “actually is”, apart from us.

We all “become” who and what we are by way of our thoughts. We can only do or be what we can first imagine ourselves doing or being. Because of this fact our thoughts are a form of revelation and prophecy that forms our destiny as a predictable path that consistently expresses the same type of ideas. For this reason the Pineal is often called the “corner stone” associated with oracles and prophets, and is symbolized by a king sitting on a stone throne between (the balancing point) two columns (subconscious and conscious minds). In a like manner, the Tree of Life is often symbolized growing out of a stone, which is another symbol of the Axis Mundi. The idea of a cornerstone also symbolizes the “right angle” (90 degree angle), which is the angular rotation (opposite angle) needed to enter into higher dimensions. The orthogonal rotation is perpendicular, represented by a horizontal line (symbol of the material plane), intersected by a vertical line (higher dimension), indicating and upward path. The horizontal line is also symbolic of being asleep or fully engrossed in material form, and the vertical line as being awake, or standing upright, as a reverse perspective.

It’s through the gateway of the Pineal that we both connect and receive transmission from our Higher Self and the Universal Mind of the Akashic Field, and that we ascend to higher dimensions after the death of our body. The 3rd-Eye is the subtle body that accompanies and operates the material body, and acts as the bridge, conduit, or passageway between the higher and lower planes. The etheric or astral body, which is the energetic hologram or Holy Ghost that acts as a spatial 3-D model for the body and the informational system necessary for operating and maintaining it as the subconscious mind or “soul” of the body, acts as a medium that connects the Higher Soul to the lower soul. The frequency of the higher domain needs to be stepped-down to a lower frequency in order to manifest and be usable on the material plane of density (destiny). The human soul which is of both the spirit and physical planes as a combination, acts as the medium between the Higher Self and the lower, animal body, and is what draws from the higher planes, and feeds the translated information to the lower plane informing the subconscious mind of the body.

The subconscious mind is the mind shared by the entire natural world, and is what operates the body through involuntary biological processes as an automated system that doesn’t require any direct awareness or thought process from the conscious mind. While the body operates naturally out of instinct as automated behaviors, that same principle operates between higher and lower planes of awareness as intuition. Intuition is our natural ability to receive information about things in a whole and complete form. We can “know about something” without knowing how or why, that didn’t come from being taught. We “sense” things as a way of being able to see into their true, invisible nature through realizations that come as feelings, thought, and mental impressions, that unfolds or grows into a complete idea by forming a dynamic series of correspondences as the means of interpreting the energetic information. The 3rd-eye, the Pineal, and our subconscious mind, all of which act as passive receptors, take in energy as vibration and translate it into material form and a reality as an inner imaginative process that then organizes the subconscious mind of the outer world with that same idea as a metaphor.

       The Pineal as the sixth chakra is the physical apparatus of the subtle 3rd-Eye. The number three representing the imagination as the faculty of inner vision that’s reflected outward, or “looked through” as a perceptual lens, forms the equivalent material manifestation, is also represented by the Hexad (6), or Star of David, which is symbolized as two overlapping triangles, orientated in opposite directions. This has a multitude of interpretations, but the primary idea is the principle of two minds (triangle) forming a single, joint reality, and the upper and lower being of the same nature or mind. It represents the microcosm and macrocosm as reflections of each other as expressed in the Hermetic saying, “As above, so below, in the wondrous workings of the One thing”.

The lower is merely a reflection and expression of the higher in a unique, yet analogous form. The Higher (Universal Archetypes as prototypes) is what acts to “in-form” the lower, which is simply a passive vessel, vehicle, or instrument of the Higher. All in-formation as thought and ideas are conceived by the lower mind in their potential (seeded) form through the gateway (phallic) of the 3rd-Eye, where they are reflected on the outer invisible sphere (EMF) of the Pineal as waves of information that form transparent images that are “viewed” or witnessed by the mind as an imagined reality. These vibrations as realities provide us with a form of experience as memory that shapes our mental paradigm forming our perceptual lens that acts to order, organize, and form our outer reality through our perception of it to be of the same nature and likeness. Thoughts come to us in dual form as both words (sound) and pictures (optics). The words form our inner dialogue as “speaking the words” that call forth the meaning of the words as living realities that create an experience of the ideas they represent.

The 3rd-Eye is our umbilical-cord or silver cord that keeps us connected to our Higher Self and the Universal Mind of the Higher Plane (which is our origin) as a constant flow of information that provides the means for creating us as a soul through what comes as purely unconscious and automatic means. The thoughts we think as ideas become the programs of our subconscious mind which shapes, regulates, regenerates, and animates our body while forming our outer reality as the analogous equivalent if our inner reality. Our subconscious mind is directly connected to and works by way of the same principles as the same subconscious in everything else as the “collective unconscious” or “mass consciousness”, and works cooperatively to organize and coordinate the material world accordingly. What we think, which is a transmission of some form either between one mind to another within the same plane, or between the Higher and lower mind, becomes our experience of ourselves, others, and the outer world as a whole. All of which are formed by the same idea as its meaning and nature, as a kind of theme that’s inherent in the common frequency that acts to form the material world of the subconscious mind.

The Mind-Body Connection: Frequency, Sympathetic Resonance, and Coherence

The body and the mind exist in a polar relationship as passive and active aspects of the same frequency. The body serves as a passive receptor and vehicle for the mind, based on resonance. The mind is fundamentally non-local, and becomes located in the body as the entity that organizes and constructs it, then inhabits in order to express and create on the physical plane. The mind, unlike the body, is pure energy and is not “fixed” or formed in a stagnate and stationary fashion, but is in a constant state of informing, unforming, and reforming, based on what it absorbs, successfully integrates and brings into physical expression as an outer experience. Whatever frequency in the immediate environment that resonates with the material body (is vibrating at the same frequency), is abstracted and absorbed or “drawn in”, reformulating and seeding the mind with new qualities that it uses to create experiences, which, when accumulated in a repetitive fashion, modifies the vibratory consciousness of the mind, evolving it to a new frequency.

What we refer to as the “mind” is equivalent to a field of structured information (memories) as a dynamic matrix of vibratory frequencies that are fluxing and flowing through a constant state of evolution based on what it merges into, mixes with, and becomes one with in the material sense. The mind is constantly being modified based on how its influence by what it’s exposed to, that’s absorbed and assimilated in an automatic fashion, and what relationship it forms with other mind-body systems. Whatever frequency as a quality of consciousness it draws in (sympathetic resonance) and is able to integrate and assimilate, modifies its vibratory structure through the incorporation of new information as memory by forming coherence with it – becoming “like it” as a conscious state. As it takes in and incorporates new memory and ways of being, old ways of being that no longer vibrate at the same frequency, die and are cast off or forgotten, and are no longer a part of the system.

The Spiritual Plane of the mind exists as a living matrix of interwoven frequencies as a larger unified whole, which is comprised of all aspects of the lower material world which is of the same frequency. We tend to approach the spiritual realm through the same “separative thinking” as we do from the limited perspective of the material plane. As we move up the vibratory scale of hierarchical planes that together form a multidimensional unified whole as a cohesive and interrelated reality, we have to think in an expanded and inclusive way as induction rather than deduction and reduction. Each higher plane contains the entire lower plane that precedes it and acts as the basis or foundation for it, much like a musical scale where the progressive culmination that results in the last note, moves to a higher scale and becomes the first note in that scale, out of which the progression continues to build throughout that scale to a higher and more expansive vibration. This is a metaphor for the idea of being the “alpha and the omega”, or the One being both the beginning and the end. What ends one realm begins another. We move between realms by progressively vibrating at a higher and higher frequency until we reach the “lower range” of the next higher realm, and through resonance, we’re “drawn up” into it, transcending the lower realm.

The material plane exists as the lower aspect of a hierarchy of multiple dimensions which together form a progressive vibratory range as “degrees of consciousness”.  These degrees of consciousness exist within the spiritual plane as archetypes in their potential form that are available to employ by embodying in order to express the reality inherent in them. In quantum physics this is referred to as the wave and the particle. The wave as a unified field contains in its potential form all the possibilities for material reality. When the individual mind, which vibrates with a certain frequency, enters into relationship with the unified-field of the universal mind, it resonates with only one possibility out of an infinite number, collapsing the wave around that one possibility as a particle (packet of information), that it then conceives and interprets in a unique fashion to create a personalized version of that “type” of reality. Through a dynamic process of adaptation and modification as a relationship formed between the individual and Universal mind, the original archetype is reformed by bringing out and amplifying some qualities, while deactivating and subduing others, shaping its character into a unique variation as the means for producing the physical reality of that idea as a personal creation.

Whatever idea we formulate in our mind by thinking about and imagining it, forms the basis for expressing that idea by becoming it in physical form, creating the experience of it, which we then absorb back into our mind as a memory. All we’re ever doing as a soul is absorbing information as archetypal ideas (whether universal and instinctual, or man made as mass consciousness), integrating, adapting, and modifying them by conforming them to our paradigm and story about things, then acting them out to produce experiences that allow the soul to acquire its own self-made experiences as the means of self-creation. The soul is comprised of memories formed from the body acting as a receiver and channel for ideas that produce equivalent realities. The soul is not directly “of” the material realm, and is what acts to construct and fashion the body to be its physical equivalent or double (twin as a reflection), that then serves as the means or vehicle for expressing through, acting as a transducer for interpreting vibration into a corresponding form as a living reality that it then “obtains” through the process of “witnessing”. We only truly learn (live and earn) through experience. All things are only known and therefore obtained through the direct experience of them.

The soul’s perspective within the body isn’t the one “in” and directly associated to the experience, but the aspect of the mind that observing it both from within and at the periphery – just outside of it where it observes it from a more extended perspective where it witnesses the “whole event”. Through witnessing the whole event from both an associated and dissociated perspective, the soul absorbs the experience in its entirety from multiple perspectives and simultaneously absorbs the experience of other people who are a part of our experiences. This is what forms the basis for karma, where we live out the same type of experiences as dynamics from multiple perspectives, and where we form what we call the “life review” that we go through as a part of the death experience, where we “feel” everything we “caused others to feel” through our behaviors.

What we call the soul, is three-fold in nature just as the mind is, because they’re basically the same thing, and originates on a higher, parallel plane that not only “oversees” and orchestrates the entire lower plane, but experiences it from a higher perspective of both the subconscious and self-conscious aspects. From this perspective, the subconscious is a part of the collective unconscious of the Earth, and includes the entire outer reality, and the self-conscious is the internal “me” aspect that experiences everything from a located, individual perspective.

On the material plane the subconscious exists as the non-local mind, and the self-conscious (brain oriented) as the local mind. From an expanded, all-inclusive higher perspective, both the subconscious and self-conscious are located in time and space, and act out an idea through a linear timeline from beginning to end as  a way of experiencing it. The true “Self” as the Higher Soul exists in a non-local fashion from a higher dimension or kingdom (chemical, mineral, plant, animal, human, and divine) and observes or witnesses (watches) the events of the lower plane as holistic patterns where it’s both a part of every aspect of the outer reality, and the single, internal aspect of the individual self. Both of which exist as an inherent part of the same frequency as an archetypal theme and character that acts to consistently tell the same type of story as congruent and consistent types of experience.

The true (eternal) soul as the Higher Self (also referred to as the guardian angel), exists in eternity outside of the dimension of time and space, and is immortal (birth, life, and death require time and space) in nature. As it descends to the lower world of material form, it divides and becomes dual in nature (electromagnetic), containing both the masculine and feminine, the outer and inner, the subconscious and conscious, the mind and body, and produces a whole inner and outer reality as the memory (karma) it’s comprised of (frequency it vibrates at).

Both the Higher Self and the self-conscious mind are active, while the subconscious mind is passive and receptive. The subconscious acts as the medium (soul of the lower world) which can receive communication as suggestion and direction from both the Higher and lower, self-conscious-ego mind of the body. This is why “spiritual guidance” from our Higher Self comes as intuition, inspiration, and through meditation and dream states. The self-conscious mind which is an outgrowth of the subconscious mind as brain consciousness that’s identified exclusively with the body it’s born in, and forms what we call the ego, which creates itself strictly by material means, has no direct connection to the Higher Self because they’re both active states. Because of this, the conscious mind can only receive communication as a form of telepathy through the subconscious mind which creates a “reflection of it” as a mental impression and feeling that mimics recalling a memory by playing it out in the imagination. By entering into meditative states, where the active, thinking mind is subdued and we exist purely in the subconscious mind of feeling, presence, and direct experience, we can become semi-aware of our connection and thought transmission from the higher plane as a dream-like vision that we simply witness and observe as the metaphorical enactment that unfolds like a dance, and the direct experience of the ideas it illustrates.

All communication from the higher plane come to us as ideas that aren’t intentionally prompted, but come spontaneously as an intuitive insight or notion about things. They come as imaginary ideas (a form of memory) that provide instruction as a template for living it into a reality in order to experience and “obtain it” (absorb it) as an actual memory, which serves to alter the mind-soul and body through the creation and integration of the memory. All DNA of the body, as a physical component of the subconscious is “programmed” or informed through experience as perception that forms memory as the “meaning” of the experience. While the conscious mind thinks in literal terms as describing, explaining, or justifying the actual physical reality, whose only purpose is to act as a stage or means for creating an outer experience as an event, the body and subconscious, which is emotional and experiential in nature, retains the experience gained based on the “meaning it has”, and what it simultaneously means about us as a result.

The soul isn’t concerned with the material events themselves, which are temporary, fleeting, and irrelevant outside of setting other events into motion through cause and effect, but is only concerned with the qualities and characteristics that are developed (called forth) and established because of the experiences. Our experiences, which are ultimately self-created as a product of our mind, express and produce states of mind as qualities of consciousness that form our character as our inner nature or “way of being”. While the conscious, thinking mind, that’s a part of the material realm, tends to repeatedly run the same memories through its mind over and over, using them to create more of the same type of experiences in the present that have the same overall meaning in terms of others and the world in general, the soul is only concerned with what it means about it in terms of what kind of person it is because of self-generated memories. The actual events only serve to create the experience, which is retained by the soul as memory of itself.  Not as a physical body within a physical world, but as the inner nature that animates and gives the body all of its natural tendencies and characteristics and causes it to constantly produce the same type of experiences over and over again.

When we remove our focus from other people and the outer world in general, and in every situation realize that we are the “sole creator” of our experiences, regardless of what the situation and events are, and begin working with that by always asking ourselves instead . . .  who am I right now?  How am I going to be in relationship with this situation? What type of experience do I want to create? What part of my character do I want to develop by way of this reality? And based solely on our own behavior, regardless of others, what does my behavior develop in me in terms of my character, and what does it mean about me? What does it show me about myself that I’m not normally aware of?

The whole goal of the soul in life is to bring what normally operates as purely unconscious tendencies into awareness, so that we can begin working with them in a conscious and deliberate manner. To move from the lower realms of instinct and automatic behaviors to the higher levels of self-creation and actualization of a higher ideal. To begin embodying higher forms of consciousness and ways of being that steadily raise our vibration to the point where we can begin resonating to a higher frequency and ascend or be “pulled up” to a higher dimension. All dimensions vibrate at certain frequencies as a level and quality of consciousness that acts as the creator and maintainer of that reality. As long as we live out of our lower, instinctual nature that simply repeats our formative conditioning, we’ll never ascend to the higher realms of active intelligence that willfully self-creates and acts to command the instinctual forces of the lower planes.

Self-Mastery through Controlling Emotions – Consciously Working with the Motivating Force of the Material Plane

electric In order to fully understand emotions and their intimate connection to “experience”, we have to look at life from the multidimensional level of interpenetrating planes of existence that are all interacting to form a coordinated movement as what we experience as reality. Our material reality is formed of three basic levels: the mental, emotional, and physical, with a four-fold nature – mood, thought, emotions, and actions – which combines to form an idea as a living reality. Our reality is created in a cohesive manner out of our feelings and thoughts which are always connected to and congruent with our emotions, which together create our mental paradigm as an interlaced series of ideas generated out of a central idea, which acts more like a theme. The theme of life we form as our mind-set and attitude forms our life story as the type of story we’re always in the process of telling by how we perceive and interpret things to give them meaning and how we experience them through what we tell ourselves about them and how we behave in relationship to our own imaginings.   We’re always in the process of remaking others in our image and with the same qualities and character that we ourselves are comprised of by perceiving them through our mental paradigm. We are always “looking through” our paradigm as our perceptual lens, and reorganize everything to be understood, explained, and described using our paradigm to interpret it as a means of creating our experience of it. While we can say that reality itself is objective and neutral, non-personalized and universal in nature, or as existing primarily without actual meaning, how we experience it turns it into a personification as a subjective reality. We are subject to, and controlled and determined by, our own experience of reality. We’re subject to our own creation as our perception that’s a fundamental illusion that ultimately becomes delusional because we live out of it as if it’s true, and create in error as a result. eye Within the natural realm where experience comes as a bodily sensation, emotion is the common denominator and the means of transmitting information across space and time. We receive information as emotions from other people and all sentient beings. Emotions form a language based on direct experience. It doesn’t communicate through specific thoughts, but rather by stimulating the same emotions in us, which determine what we think based on what we associate to the emotion, and how we relate the feelings to memories of various sorts. The emotions being communicated don’t make us think the specific thoughts of the individual putting them off, but causes us to think the same “type” of thoughts. While the thoughts associated to the emotion may be different from one individual to another, they act to express the emotions as a thought-process or memory that becomes the template for producing a behavioral dynamic as an outward expression.   Emotions are very compulsive, and create an inner activity that produces immediate, automatic, and reactive behaviors. Emotional charges of any kind produce an instant and equivalent reaction that renders us unconscious as we’re doing it. We don’t think about how we’re feeling and what we’re doing, we just act in an outburst or instant reaction, and serve to amplify and increase the emotion by becoming the channel for it. We allow the emotion to come through us, acting it out as an unconscious behavior, which causes a direct effect. Our emotional reactions, like any action, are creative in nature, and draw immediate as well as long-term consequences. They create a powerful experience that’s impacting, often to the point of being somewhat traumatizing, for both ourselves and others who are at the butt of our behaviors. Whatever we allow to “come through us”, we act as the channel for, that simultaneously shapes us and forms the basis for our life experiences as an accumulative affect that plays out over extended periods of time. This is a basic form of karma. wormhole Emotions are a natural part of the instinctual field of the Earth, and are designed to work through the subconscious mind, which is the level of the mind we share with the animal kingdom, that serves to prompt automatic behaviors. This is a bit of a challenge with humans, who have the ability to think and make-up things by imagining them, and who begin thinking in response to emotions, creating whole imagined realities out of the emotions they’re experiencing. Fear is designed to prevent action or move us away from danger of some sort, which is what it does to animals, who as soon as the danger passes no longer feel the fear. With humans, when we feel fear, we begin thinking fearful thoughts and running imaginary scenarios through our mind as situations that intensify or give us more of the same type of fear. Even when the fear as an actual danger is past, we have trouble shaking the feeling, and continue thinking about and imagining fearful thoughts. When we feel emotional pain of some sort, we build whole imagined realities out of our pain, and keep experiencing it over and over by running those thoughts through our mind, conditioning ourselves to it as a common way of thinking and feeling that keeps us in a constant state of pain.   Whatever emotion we’re experiencing and indulging in, we’re also radiating and acting to stimulate that same emotion in everyone and everything around us. By stimulating it, we call it forth in them, creating an equivalent emotional state in both, out of which we enter into relationship with them through the shared emotion and it becomes the basis for our interaction, which amplifies and increases it by expressing it to create a joint reality. The joint reality created acts to strengthen the emotional state in both people, and they draw unto themselves the experiences it creates, which shapes who they are as people. Our experiences, created out of an unconscious emotional state become the memory of our soul, which reforms it to those types of realities, tuning it to them as a vibratory frequency, where it continues to create (express) out of the illusions they form.   Emotions are readily felt as a distinct feeling sensation in the body just by being in near proximity of someone exuding the emotions. Those who live out of strong emotions that are always controlling them somehow, impose a strong and distinct influence on everyone around them, by activating in them the same emotions. The language of the body and subconscious mind is emotional in nature and provides us with information about our environment that adjusts our “inner state” to match that of the “outer state” preparing us to deal with whatever it is we need to deal with. The fundamental law that governs evolution as a developmental process is a constant exchange of information as qualities and levels of consciousness with our environment. We take in and assimilate the energy and essence that surrounds us, adjusting us to the same molecular state as our surroundings preparing us for what’s coming and what we need to do to interact and survive in it. The mind exists in a basic state of anticipation and readiness. It’s always receiving information as a form of communication with everything around us by how we’re being stimulated emotionally, and how we’re acting to stimulate others through the emotions that are motivating our behaviors and how we’re perceiving our situation through the filter of our emotions. vp eye Once we understand this, we can realize that emotions aren’t our enemy, as some believe, but rather our greatest tool for communicating below the level of awareness. By bringing our emotions under control, and being able to perceive them from an objective perspective as information about whoever is projecting them by expressing through them, we can recognize the reality those people live out of and communicate through. By seeing and sensing what their mental model is and how they create their realities by the emotions they allow to operate through them, we can learn how to effectively communicate with them through the language of their emotions using their model as the premise for illustrating it in a way they’ll easily understand. By being able to look at emotions from an objective, neutral perspective, by not letting them take hold “in us” and submerge us in the delusion that acts as the vehicle for transmission, we can see them as revealing information about the person transmitting them.   We can develop the ability to use emotions to communicate by realizing their powerful ability to produce actions. We can learn to step into emotional states, and express through them knowing that we’re penetrating people’s mind through the emotion which enters them without their awareness of what’s happening, where they readily take on the necessary state to automatically accept and act on the ideas attached to them. Emotions are the field that transmits information, the carrier wave that injects that idea as a suggestion into their subconscious mind, where it takes hold and begins developing by how they think about. How they think about it, and how they develop the idea into a personal reality, is based on the emotion attached to it. The emotion shapes the idea to be a reality that expresses the emotion and gives us more of the same feeling. Emotions exist in direct relationship to thoughts, and together shape an idea into an inner reality that then becomes the basis for an outer reality by how they project it and act on the idea through the behaviors they employ in response to it.   Emotions are the motivating forces of the material world, and are either controlling us without our awareness, or we can learn how to control them. By bringing natural forces under control, we can use them as tools for creating, by intentionally and deliberately using them to influence the minds of others, by operating through their subconscious mind. We can use emotions to deliver suggestions that operate at the subliminal level, and work through the same principles that govern hypnosis and the larger idea of brain-washing the masses. Any content delivered through a strong emotion enters the mind without resistance, takes hold, and begin commanding their will by controlling their thoughts. We don’t need to “act on them” by giving them further instruction through suggestions on “how to develop” the idea, we simply need to make sure we’ve connected it to the proper emotion by how we deliver it. The emotion connected to the idea will determine how they think about it, what they reference and associate to it, that will form it as an analogy or variation as a personalization, while still holding true to expressing the idea as the reality inherent in the emotion as an experience. universal The mind has the ability to control and utilize the Elemental forces of Nature, of the natural world, that are primarily what we experience as emotions that contain whole realities in them as a self-organizing quality that shapes reality by how we perceive it. We “see though” our emotions, and only see what matches our emotions, and can be shaped into the story our emotions tell as living realities. These natural forces also have the ability to control the mind of the soul by determining how we use our creative capacity of thought, which shapes the Astral Light into conceptualized realities in the imagination, that become the perceptual lens that we look through and use to create our experiences by how we interpret the outer reality to tell the same story.   Thought and emotion are always connected and synchronized, one is impregnated with the other, it’s purely a question of orientation – are the thoughts commanding the emotions, or are the emotions commanding the thoughts? The plane of thought and emotion are parallel and operate by reverse laws on their individualized planes. On the upper universal plane of pure ideas as the potential (whole ideas) that forms thought, thought is active and emotions are passive. Thought invokes emotion in response to it. On the lower plane of emotion, thoughts are passive and emotions are active. Emotions control and determine how we think and what we think about. On the material plane thought is nearly always a response to emotion. By gaining the ability to take conscious control of this process, and orientate ourselves to the higher plane of thoughts and ideas, we can control and regulate our emotional states by employing intentional thoughts that automatically invoke in us their emotional equivalent. By stepping into an idea and allowing the emotions associated to it take affect, we can see the emotional state that’s the natural equivalent of the thought. We can then know what types of emotions are naturally attached to certain types of thoughts, and we obtain “formulas” for transferring ideas through emotional expressions.   Thought itself, which is usually formed out of memory of some sort, differs with every person, but emotions are universal and something we all share in common. While our thoughts and ideas may not invoke the same emotional response in others, because thoughts are individual based largely on personal memories, emotions are thematic and act to produce imagined realities as the type of memories associated to that emotion. This thematic quality of emotions gives them a universal appeal because it determines the “type” of thoughts we think, and what type of realities we imagine based on the memories associated to the emotion. Our experiences are a combination of thought and emotion that form a unified reality as their combined outward expression. Because we come into this world in a primarily subconscious state, which forms our programming as memories that are largely emotionally based, where we experience an emotion in a life situation that we then form into a story as the expression of the emotion that makes it mean something, associating that type of idea to the emotion, which forms the memory as apart of a larger reference system. Anytime thereafter that same emotion is stimulated in us, we associate it to the same type of idea as the memory which produces a thought-process that tells the same type of story about what’s happening and becomes the basis for re-creating it by acting it out as an experience of reality. So while they may have a different memory attached to the emotion, it still creates the reality inherent in that emotion that’s consistent to the theme of the emotion. If the emotion being communicated through is “sad” and causes them to feel sad, they’ll recall the memories in which they felt sad, and use those memories to recreate a similar experience. They’ll think sad thoughts and see around them only what matches that feeling and can be used to tell the same type of story. Likewise, a feeling of enthusiasm and excitement causes them to access whatever ideas and memories that were created out of a state of excitement, and they think the same type of thoughts applying them to the present. embracing cosmos So the real communication, the one that’s universal in nature, is the emotional content of the communication, which comes through how we’re communicating it with our whole being; our physiology, gestures, tone of voice, facial expressions, timing and emphasis, and so on. The emotional content is the actual transference of information as associated ideas, that, while it allows for individual association of thoughts, it always organizes thoughts into the same theme of the emotion, and what thoughts they imagine in response to the emotion, will still act to express the emotion as a personification of a universal theme. What’s individualized on the higher realm of pure thought is universal on the lower realm of emotion. And what’s universal or shared in common on the emotional plane, is individualized on the higher realm of thought. Again, the universal and individual operating as opposites that are complementary, as active and passive elements of the same thing.   So the first step in self-mastery is learning how to control our emotional reactions, and in doing so, become aware of what memories you have associated with those emotions, and what internal realities they serve to activate in you as your unconscious and automatic reaction, where the emotion controls you, and you’re being controlled by others and your environment. First by refraining from reacting to emotional triggers, while turning your awareness inward and becoming aware of what’s happening inside of you and what memories you begin thinking about (as a theme) because of the emotion being activated that becomes the basis for a pattern of automatic behavior as an unconscious reaction. By practicing self-reflection you can begin becoming aware of the true nature of emotions, and how they keep you living out of the past as automated behaviors that keep producing the same type of realities that produce the same type of consequences. Through this awareness you can realize how emotions act to engage and control you. By becoming self-aware you can begin realizing that the emotional states of others only affect you if you let them. If you remain unaware of the nature of emotional charges as the projection or transmission of electrical currents being put off by others, and how you act to naturally receive them and become infected with them then you continue to create your life experiences without direct awareness of what’s happening. You can begin to realize how the emotions and realities being projected by others are an expression of their paradigm and have nothing to do with you, unless of course, you let it by taking it on as your own and cooperate in acting it out with them. electric neurons Through this awareness you can begin neutralizing emotions, while still maintaining an awareness of them, and be able to receive and discern the information about others they communicate, without letting them take hold and begin controlling you. Once you reach this state of being able to view and interpret emotions from an objective, non-personal perspective, whole new worlds open up and self-control becomes something that’s easy to do. And even when you get momentarily caught up in an emotional reaction being projected at you, you can catch your self midstream, and back out of it by diffusing it, and begin taking back control of our own thoughts and actions. Through this practice alone you can regain your ability to create in a more deliberate and intentional way, creating with a sense of purpose in what you do with an awareness of the consequences it renders and the series of events it sets into motion as a result.   Dr. Linda Gadbois Transformational Coaching Personal Development About the author: Dr. Linda is a Spiritual Scientist and scholar of Hermetic Sciences and Ancient Wisdom traditions.
