Mastering Your Own Mind – State and the Art of Transmutation

Everything in the material world is comprised of energy as vibration. All vibration is formed by movement as an interaction between complementary opposites of the same thing. All vibration consists of information and a self-organizing mechanism that organizes the information into a dynamic geometric pattern as a virtual reality that becomes the holographic blueprint for constructing the material equivalent as a growth and accumulative process.  Every idea is a vibratory pattern that exists as pairs of opposites that form a scale as a range of vibration that forms a frequency. Every vibratory frequency originates on the mental plane as a “state of mind” composed of qualities of consciousness that shape us and our outer reality to be a part of the same idea on different scales. Vibration as light (photons) exists as both a wave and a particle simultaneously, and forms both the inner and outer, the individual and its outer reality, the local and non-local mind as being of the same pattern as a theme played out on different scales and levels of complexity. The wave exists in a state of pure potential as all of the infinite possibilities associated with that vibratory theme at a non-local level. The particle of that same frequency exists as the physical body that the mind (wave/field) bonds to through resonance and sympathetic induction, and becomes located at a specific point within the outer realm of the same potential reality.

Vibration operates on multiple planes simultaneously with the same patterning as an archetypal idea that’s made into a whole thematic reality. Vibration contains an archetype (idea) as a feeling state, that produces thoughts of the same nature as concepts and internal representations that become the basis for creating it as a living scenario. Whatever reality is formed in the mind as the expression of the idea that’s adapted to a specific situation or set of circumstances, stimulates an emotional response to that reality which resonates through the chakra system of the subtle body, stimulating the associated endocrine glands of the physical body producing chemistry that adjusts it to the same vibratory state as the mind. There’s a constant back and forth flow of energy as information between the body and mind, keeping them both in a harmonious state of vibratory coherence.

This vibration as a feeling originates in the mind on the mental plane, and it’s within that plane that it’s altered, regulated, or transmuted altogether. The spiritual plane of pure consciousness (mind) exists in polarity with the astral plane of the soul (emotion), which acts as a medium between the spiritual plane and the material plane, and is comprised of combination of both. The astral plane of the soul, also exists in polarity with the material plane as it’s complementary opposite, which is what bonds it to the physical body, and acts to stimulate the matter of the body into activity and operates it through a back and forth motion as a self-perpetuating flow of conscious energy that simultaneously influence, modify, and transmute each other.

The emotions of the body (chemistry as a state) in turn produce like-thoughts as a perception of the reality they indicate, which produces a feeling state as a mood. All vibration moves between opposite poles of the same idea or thing as contrasting qualities and characteristics. An idea as a state-of-mind exists in polarity (dual aspects) as an electromagnetic interaction with itself from opposite perspectives. These complementary opposites are identical in nature, and vary only in “degrees”, not in “kind” or type. This range of vibration as degrees of opposites create and form a scale, much like a musical scale that we move along in stages that alter our state from a negative aspect (lower vibration) to the positive aspect (highest vibration) by varying degrees as a gradual movement of gradients. This gradient scale is comprised of very fine lines that are somewhat obscure as to where one degree or quality ends and the other begins.

For example: Our state of mind as a quality of consciousness can be applied to the same thing to determine how we experience it.  Love and hate are the same idea (pattern), separated only by degrees that move through varying levels of love into like, with different levels of liking something, into dislike and then into hatred, which again, exist at different levels and degrees of intensity. The positive end of love, always acts to attract us and draw us into it, and the opposite or negative of hate repulses us, and causes us to move away from it. Yet on the purely mental plane, hatred can consume us with an equal degree as love can. We can spend more time dwelling in and thinking about what we hate, dislike, and don’t want, than we do thinking about and dwelling in what we love, like, and want. This is why from a psychological perspective we say that you can’t truly hate someone or something unless you’ve also loved them.

A good way of understanding this principle in practical terms, is thru the idea of opposites of the same thing as degrees of differences, such as hot (fire) and cold (water), which together form an infinite number of “degrees” as “states” that move from one extreme to the other of the same thing. It’s hard to tell where heat ends and cold begins, because it exists as a range rather than a finite point. The same principle applies to light and dark, large and small, black and white, high and low, and positive and negative. All are of the same thing, varying only in degrees of vibration as a range or unified frequency. A frequency as a “range” between extremes of the same thing, is merely a mode and rate of vibration.

This same principle works on the mental plane with opposites such as good and bad, love and hate, fear and courage, greed and charity, lust and chastity, and is the principle expressed in the seven deadly sins (errors in being) and the contrary seven heavenly virtues (divine way of being). These vices and virtues are opposing each other, and provide the key for understanding true transformation, not from one thing to another, or changing in class or kind, but moving between the positive and negative pole of the same quality or characteristic as embodying the opposite aspect of the same idea.

Transmutation isn’t about completely changing your nature or becoming a different person altogether, but rather changing negative traits into positive ones through an understanding of the principle of polarity and how to apply that knowledge at the practical level (bringing it into practice) and through discipline and active use of will to act on yourself in a deliberate manner, to transform yourself by altering your vibratory frequency. Our character is primarily developed in two ways, through a form of stimulus – response at the subconscious level of formative conditioning, and through a conscious decision that we willfully act out as a creative process that intentionally develops us through those qualities as a way of being. We’re always in the process of developing and becoming a certain way, it’s only a question of whether we’re doing it with awareness, or through a lack of awareness.

The goal of spiritual development is to transmute yourself through self-mastery by purifying your moral character from a lower, animalistic and ignorant and unconscious state, to a higher, divine and intelligent state. To move from selfishness and corruption to selflessness and purity. To use the power of our mind as will to intentionally change our own perceptions, thoughts, and behaviors to those that are constructive, positively creative, and beneficial in raising our vibration to a higher level which is necessary for ascending to higher dimensions through induction as vibratory sympathy or being of the same nature and likeness as the frequency of the higher dimensions. All higher vibration involves greater forms of consciousness as intelligence that’s creative and life affirming in nature, rather than destructive and killing life.

Higher dimensions, often referred to as heaven or nirvana, are pristine paradises, which can only be created and maintained by those of the mind-set and natural behaviors that produce and sustain it in that state. Those who are of a lower, earthly, animalistic and unconscious mind-set, are destructive, unaware of the consequences of their actions, and lack the willpower and discipline to curb their own appetites and corrupting tendencies. They mindlessly act or participate in destroying and killing their own environment through sheer ignorance, a detachment from the reality of their actions, simply not caring, and the inability to direct their own mind by refraining from primal urges.

Through an understanding of the Law of Polarity we can work on ourselves to transform ourselves to a higher, creative way of being. We can alter our state, which will simultaneously alter our thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. We can recognize all traits that are being negatively expressed, and intentionally invoke the state necessary to move them to a positive expression of the same idea. We can transform fear by employing courage in its place and willfully acting it out. We can transform hatred into love, by looking through the eyes of love and seeking first to understand instead of judging and condemning. By learning how to produce and maintain our own state of mind, we can begin changing behaviors and perceptions that are negative in nature to the positive expression of the same idea and transform our experience of living from one of pain and suffering to one of joy and well-being.

Sub-personalities – Internal Conflict and the Voices in your Head

good and bad
One of the most natural aspects of our everyday experience is this constant inner dialogue going on within our mind as a form of discussion, negotiation, or argument between different aspects or parts of ourselves. This natural phenomenon is evident in how we describe it when we say that “one part of me wants to do this, while another part of me wants to do that”. This split decision causes us to feel torn between ideas, and often leaves us never really making a firm decision while constantly going back and forth between extremes of the same idea. This same reality is often depicted as a devil on one shoulder, and an angel on the other, both whispering in our ear. Carl Jung recognized this basic process of consciousness always going on, and developed the idea of the psyche being composed of multiple archetypes or personalities that are always engaged in discussion and persuasion as part of our normal thinking. Of course this idea wasn’t unique to Jung, but is a basic part of ancient wisdom and the archetypes of mythology as aspects of consciousness that represent different personalities, and astrology based on the individual make-up being based on the archetypes and their main focus within a persons basic personality. These are not to be mistaken for “multiple personalities”, which is an entirely different condition, but rather as different aspects of one personality.

 
These inner voices, all with personalities of their own, each exerting themselves in various situations, competing for control of our will, are actually what in psychology we call “sub-personalities”, “inner aspects”, or “different parts”, all of which make the greater overall personality. We’re born with a cluster of archetypal personalities as part of our soul’s make-up, and we acquire them as we go through life from our conditioning, events of strong emotional impact, extreme fear, or trauma’s of some sort. Our parent’s voice, for example, becomes a natural part of our inner dialogue that continues to play out and talk to us from the same attitude, perspective, intention, and demeanor. Our belief system, likewise, comes as an inner discussion that’s always telling us about something from the perspective of the belief it represents. When we encounter shocking, fearful, or intense situations, we can draw into us and take on new aspects that are ideally suited for negotiating that situation “for us”, or as a means of coping with it. Whenever we’re devastated in some way, and fall apart, we let down our resistance to outside forces and influences, and become vulnerable to them through a form of magnetism.

energy design

Whatever emotional state we indulge in, we polarize ourselves to, become a magnet for the consciousness of that emotion, and draw into us thoughts that create realities out of the emotions as a possible expression of it. We “take on” the quality of consciousness equivalent to the emotional state, and think thoughts that form inner realities that express and produce more of that emotion. These emotional thoughts, seemingly generated by our mind as the expression of the emotions, take on a life of their own, become an aspect of our personality, and continue to operate in us through a voice that becomes a natural part of our thinking. It’s an aspect of the emotional state that produces it that perceives everything from that perspective, and has its role and intention “as” that perspective. It stays alive in us by thinking through us, and always talking to us in a convincing manner, negotiating the terms of its existence.

 
The sub-personality is always describing things, explaining them, and pointing them out while telling us about them. While they’re active “in us”, we are rendered passive, and allow them to exert themselves by giving them the stage to speak freely. Even when we recognize them, and willfully subdue them, as soon as our guard is down, they reassert themselves and begin controlling our thoughts without our direct awareness. They’re so automatic that they become a natural part of us. After awhile, we can’t separate ourselves from them, come to depend on them, and let them run us and use our mind and will to create by way of us. As long as we fail to integrate the parts, they continue to exert themselves without our direct awareness, through our subconscious nature. Whatever exists in us at the subconscious level, meaning without our direct awareness of it, we continue to act out in an automatic fashion, usually producing what ultimately becomes an internal conflict. They form opposing unconscious aspects of ourselves that go against conscious aspects. We make a decision consciously to do something, and then our subconscious mind brings into play everything that contradicts it and is acting to prevent it, sabotaging our willful efforts. Because these aspects were formed out of intense emotional states, whenever we begin reliving them, or they rise in us and begin playing out by controlling our thoughts, they’re accompanied by strong emotions, which tend to overpower us, and negate rational and reasonable thinking that’s devoid of a strong emotional component.

Man with conceptual spiritual body art

When two ideas come into direct conflict, each represented by a different aspect of ourselves, the one which elicits the strongest emotion tends to win out. While our first approach may be to fight against the emotional aspect preventing us from consciously progressing in a more favorable direction through active choice and will, this can prove hopeless and at best a temporary gain through dominance and suppression, yet the real solution lies in negotiating terms with the sub-personality, by gaining realization around it, what its purpose and agenda is, what it’s meant to do, and thanking it for its service to you by helping you through the difficult situation in which you acquired it in, then telling it to leave, while mentally forming a pathway out of your body and sending it back out into the universe to be of service to someone else.

 
All energies and natural forces as qualities of consciousness only come into us through a vacancy or void that creates a vacuum as magnetism of some sort, which we could think of as a form of invitation that pulls or draws it into us through resonance, we can simultaneously realize that regardless of the role it takes on, the intention is beneficial because it was designed to help us through a situation we were in as a state of mind that attracted it, or awakened it in us. While we tend to think of the mind as a product of the brain or heart, and therefore “set” and comprised of fixed qualities, the fact of the matter is we are born with a constitution as a set of information and memories that form our initial personality, and we are engaged in a constant process of growth and development through a constant exchange of energy with everything around us. The mind is energetic and invisible in nature, and works through vibration, sympathetic induction, and synthesis, in much the same way we take in the molecules of the air around us by breathing it, which then become an essential part of our molecular structure, while discharging or exhaling molecules no longer needed as a form of recycling. Likewise, the food we eat becomes the building blocks that form our physical body, determining our health as a physical state or condition. Our mind is the electromagnetic energy system of our body that’s drawing into it energies as qualities the consciousness around it. Blending with and becoming the same as them, altering the vibration of the mind through the integration, while emanating or sending back out energies no longer magnetized to it.

bit by bit

The energies of the mind as the invisible forces in the invisible space around us, are “qualities of consciousness” with a singular nature that form an aspect of a larger matrix of energies and become a sub-personality with a specific perspective and perception, that forms a part of our overall personality, modifying it by incorporating the singular perspective, altering the overall perspective. We experience it as a “voice in our head” as “thought” that enter into and become a part of our normal perspective of everyday reality. Because they come as thoughts and feelings, we often don’t realize that they’re not our own, and are something we “acquired” instead, and we give our will to them by letting them rise in us as our perception, thoughts, and interpretation of the meaning events take on. They begin discussing everything as a form of argument that clashes with and negates other aspects, always seeking to win over and resume control of our perception and thought processes.

 
Like all things of the mind and the invisible plane of pure energy that we are submerged in and an integral part of, the only way to extract unwanted aspects, or aspects whose part and role is no longer needed or beneficial, is through recognition and awareness of them and how they operate to influence and control you. Because we acquire these automatically while in an unconscious state of delirium (emotion, trauma, shock, intense fear, etc.), and they’re absorbed into our unconscious mind and arise in us automatically without our direct awareness of them, they continue with us until we become conscious and aware of them. Once we become aware of different aspects of ourselves, and how they exist in conflict with other aspects of our nature, and we realize how they’re serving us through protection and service of some sort, we can appreciate them, feel gratitude for their help, and let them know they’re no longer needed. They no longer serve a desirable or necessary purpose. We can then locate them in our body through the emotion they are a part of and the bodily sensations it produces, and direct them to leave while mentally escorting them out of our body and back into the universal soul of mass consciousness where they’ll become available to be drawn in by someone else in need of their services.

 
The interesting thing about qualities or aspects of consciousness is that they exists on the plane of the mind as consciousness, and can only be worked with from that same plane. The mind controls the mind, and our own conscious awareness and imagination is used to acquire, exchange, utilize, and discharge the consciousness available all around us. We work with our mind by way of our mind. We can realize that our will commands aspects of the mind not only as energies around us, but through the mind of others. We are constantly taking on and exchanging consciousness with everyone and everything around us. By becoming aware of this we can simultaneously learn how to exercise control over it.

 
Once we realize that our soul as our consciousness actually “jumps out of” and exits our body during events of fear, shock, and trauma, causing what you could think of as a vacancy and a form of vacuum as a magnetic pull that draws in energy equivalent to or of the same vibration and quality of our state of mind, or that’s inherent in the situation, we can begin realizing the powerful role emotions and fear play in governing us through acquisition of consciousness that increase and amplifies the state itself. Fear draws into us consciousness of the reality inherent in the fear, and makes us think fearful thoughts, or react with anger and rage, through an inner voice that begins dialoguing with us about the fear and from the perspective and attitude that sees the same type of fear in everything around us just through its perception of it. Looking through the lens of fear, we only see more fear or what warrants fear.

MindfieldBy learning how to manage our state of mind, we can recognize aspects we’ve acquired that aren’t “us”. We can begin distinguishing between our real self and our acquired self. We can begin realizing that certain aspects of our thinking are associated to specific events of our life where we “acquired them” and they became a normal part of our thinking. We can begin realizing how they play a part in sabotaging other aspects of our life, or argue against and negotiate through seduction to prevent willfully bringing about desired changes through conscious decisions to do so. By becoming aware of their strong emotional component we can not only resist their control, but learn how to identify them further, while simultaneously using compelling emotions to fuel and empower our conscious decisions. By gaining realization around them and what they act to prevent, protect us from, deal with, or cause, we can see their purpose and how they were intended to protect us, and how through that same attitude and behavior now act to sabotage our intentional efforts, we can thank it for its help, and tell it it’s no longer needed, then consciously and willfully release it, freeing it from the body and mind, and no longer be subject to it. Anytime we are “removing” one aspect creating a void or opening, we have to consciously draw into that space what we want to fill it, or it’ll do it automatically with whatever is available without our direction. As we create an opening or vacuum we have call or pull our soul back in to fill it, recovering it and becoming whole again. This is traditionally referred to as “Soul Retrieval” in Shamanic Arts.
All energy as spirits, entities, qualities, or emotions is subject to and commanded by the will of the human mind. We willfully acquire them through needing or wanting, or by vacating our body creating an opening for them to enter, take hold, and remain apart of us. While they occupy a part of us, our own soul can’t fully enter back into and operate through us, and remains on the outer boundaries of the mind where an opening has to be created in order to draw our own soul aspects back into our body. Only through awareness, realization, and willful control over them can we release or discharge them. The problem is, once they become a part of us, we build our identity around them as an essential part of ourselves, and form a kind of love for them, and hold them to us as a result. We don’t want to let them go because we’ve become accustomed to the story we began living out of them due to the traumatic circumstances we acquired them through, and feel as if we would lose an important part of ourselves by letting them go that would change tour very psychological make-up by making us encounter and experience in us what they were designed to protect us from. We only draw into us and acquire consciousness that’s of service somehow and therefore useful.

ethereal body

Even when we perceive them as bad or destructive, they’re preventing us from coming face-to-face with other aspects of ourselves that we fear even more, even though they might be ultimately good and serve our growth. For example, anger and hostility may be acquired in response to something terrifying that was exactly what we needed to deal with that event, and so it helped us cope and be able to get through it, that once the terrifying event passed, we still maintain an aspect of us that approaches ordinary experiences with an attitude of anger and aggressiveness, or we see them in a way that makes us feel angry and aggressive that’s an inappropriate response. We can continue to look at ordinary things from a perspective that warrants anger and a hostel attitude. In this way, the very quality that protected us in one situation, now becomes our downfall because it becomes a primary part of our everyday life and we’re “angry a lot”, or it becomes an inappropriate response that we can’t seem to help, and we begin employing volatile reactive behavior in the ordinary sense.

 
While we may come to a conscious decision of no longer needing their diversion, and are willfully choosing to step into what we originally feared and resisted, they continue to play out preventing it by introducing contradicting thoughts and emotions that go against our active decisions and hold us to the same attitudes, identity, and behavioral tendencies they served to develop in the first place. Once they become apart of us, we mistake them for being us, and continue to let them control us by living out of them and never sticking with our decisions that would eradicate them by rendering them subjective to our will.

 
Like all things, the idea is never to fight against or resist something, but rather to remove it and its influences from the system altogether, modifying the mind, and removing all blocks to progressive growth through willful decision making. At the level of the mind and consciousness, awareness is the key! Anything we remain unaware of continues to play out in our life, without our consent. By becoming aware of unconscious or shadow aspects of ourselves, we can dissolve them through awareness itself. Not through hating them or judging them to be bad, weak, or wrong, but rather by recognizing how they were serving us at some level and were exactly what we needed to deal with the situation we were in when we attracted them. When they entered us they were helping us to cope with and negotiate some situation that was difficult for us, or that we didn’t feel equipped to deal with. It’s only through true recognition and love and gratitude, that we work with the very consciousness that makes up our own being and serves to create our life experiences and impose a distinct direction on our life’s path by playing a part in controlling our choice and will to bring about certain realities. Love, appreciation and gratitude elicit a natural state of cooperation necessary to direct energetic forces.

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

All reality is a product of memory.

Innovative Leadership for Creative ways of doing Business – Becoming a Social Architect

Cosmic_creativityMany people view leaders as those having a vision that they then use to inspire the group that will be responsible for actually creating it by instructing them on what they need to do in order to create the vision as a team effort. And while this is probably a somewhat affective method for a corporate, drone worker type mentality, or those who imagine their role as “boss” is to micromanage and rule over others with a whip in hand and a stern face, but for the more innovative and creative enterprises, a leader is one who organizes the talents and personalities of every team member to form a dynamic vision as the integration of multiple ideas to come up with a unique and specialized idea that incorporates the full participation of everyone involved. It’s a creative process, that even when developed into an organizational practice, remains a “work in progress” where new ideas and creative solutions are consistently being experimented with as a means of constantly improving whatever service, product, or process the business provides.

 
I often get asked what my “method” or “model” is that I practice by, usually anticipating an answer as a “tried and proven” method handed down by someone considered an expert in the business of leadership (whatever that means) that everyone will recognize and therefore trust. I always find this question a bit confusing and often draw a blank in response to it, because the only method I use is the creative process and the scientific method of experimentation. While the combination of these is somewhat of a “method”, how it’s formulated and utilized varies with every situation, dynamic group of people operating as a team within that business, and the basic vision and intention for the business of the person most responsible for organizing and overseeing the operation of the team as a whole. Every situation has a unique idea they’re creating, with a unique group of talent and varying levels of expertise, and a unique style as their personality, service or method of delivery, and vision. My job is simply to help them realize what this is, embraced it in the practical sense, and put into place the basic processes for creating it as a reality while keeping it as simple as possible.

patterns

I don’t walk in with a preconceived idea about what needs to happen, or a “cookie-cutter” method that I impose on them under the facade of being an expert with ready made solutions to every problem, but rather I help them to begin thinking about things in a new way, learn how to operate as a whole rather than as fragmented and disconnected parts, and elicit participation of each individual, and their ability to capitalize on the talents of every team member, while developing a portfolio of diverse ideas that can be strategically integrated to form new and possible solutions, or to come up completely novel methods. I teach Entrepreneurs to begin thinking in new ways and maximizing the talents of their staff and associates. I provide them with the skills for learning to think and operate as a dynamic team with a shared goal as a desired outcome. Where every member is valued for their unique perspective and expertise and contribution to the daily operations and how that enhances and enriches the experience of everyone involved. The best way to get buy-in and accountability from everyone involved is by utilizing their ideas, while taking an attitude of perfecting them “as you go” based on feedback that allows you to shape them through the actual application into an efficient system.

 
I teach business owners how to develop a business plan as an overall vision that’s an integration of different visions to form a working collaboration. When people’s ideas are actively employed and used to help form the standard procedures of the business, there’s a strong investment to make sure they succeed and an increased accountability to make sure they’re adhered to. When everyone involved is a valuable part of the whole and necessary to make it a success, they perform at much higher levels, and with an attitude of enthusiasm, sincerity, and commitment. When they’re an active part of the creation, and a necessary part of the equation, your staff and business becomes a family, and the commodore and quality of life for everyone involved is greatly enhanced, where loving their work is the norm, and the company as a whole can achieve a state of excellence in what they do, and every member grows and learns within their daily experiences.

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.

Becoming Self-Aware: Spiritual Guidance is a Form of Hypnotic Suggestion

universal
By learning the principles of the mind involved in programming ourselves for certain types of experiences or as a form of ongoing storytelling that follows distinct themes, we can simultaneously realize that we exist in a primary state of hypnotic trance that connects us to multiple dimensions as inner and outer (parallel) and upper and lower (hierarchy). Through our self-conscious “thinking” mind, our subconscious “emotional-experiential” mind, and our higher “idea oriented” mind, when unified form holistic patterns that contain the full content of a living reality as a spontaneous unfolding that comes as a chain-of-association, where the subconscious exists as the passive and receptive medium between the other two aspects of the mind, where thoughts and ideas are readily taken in without editing or resistance and constructed into full imaginary realities.

 
What ties the upper plane to the lower is the subconscious which accepts patterns as programming from the upper plane and develops them into a form of memory as an actual (imagined) reality. Likewise, the conscious mind which is the offspring of the subconscious mind and exists (lives and dies) fully within the physical plane, also has the ability to program the subconscious mind through “thoughts” that become the basis for imagined realities that create virtual memories as templates for producing outer experiences of the same nature. The problem is it often doesn’t realize that it has this power, and so its thoughts are usually controlled instead by the subconscious mind through emotional states, and replaces what has the potential to be “original thoughts” with thoughts that are based on a series of associated memories. So while the conscious mind has the ability to create by forming original thoughts that it gives to the subconscious to create new experiences out of, instead, it tends to spend its creative ability thinking about the past and creating variations of the same type of experiences.

 
The self-conscious mind, which is the “local” mind identified with the body, birthed within this life and the conditions and circumstances of the body, is primarily held to the laws of the physical realm, and so tends to be logical, rational, and analytical, while lacking intuition. The conscious mind is also time bound (located) and spends most of its time distracted “in time” as thinking about the past, reliving memories over and over by bringing them into the present, or using the past to try and anticipate the future. The conscious mind is hardly ever present and therefore dwells in the imaginary realities of its own making that it uses in place of actual reality as a form of illusion or dreamlike state that forms a veil that conceals the true nature inherent in the “present” reality as objective, neutral, and non-personal. The conscious mind is the story-teller that reshapes objective reality into subjective experiences out of conceptualized representations that it then mistake’s for objective reality. It’s so caught up in the illusions build out of of its own memories, that it lives most of its life in a primarily unconscious, unaware, and delusional state. A true paradox, resolved only through awareness that brings self-realization of what we’re actually doing.

Even though the subconscious mind works out of memory, it exists outside of time, is always present, and perceives objective outer reality through actual emotions and sensations as a basic form of sympathetic resonance. It’s always interacting with other conscious energy in its environment, and though its programmed by memory to produce automatic behavior and regulate bodily processes in response to the information its constantly receiving from its environment, it doesn’t make up stories or think verbal, language oriented thoughts that serve to mask reality, and is always experiencing things as they actually are, instead of by way of a personalized perception (judgment) that distorts fact by telling a story about it that makes it mean something that transform it into a personal creation.

 
The subconscious is therefore never the “creator” of memory that distorts outer reality, but is “one with” the outer reality and sensing it as it really is. The subconscious forms memory out of “actual” experiences that are then utilized for practical use by recalling them in the imagination giving it a response pattern as an instant perception that produces automatic behaviors as the most appropriate response (instinct). The subconscious doesn’t know the difference between a memory created from an actual experience, and one created by imagining an experience that elicits a strong sensory-emotional response. This is because actual memory is recalled in the imagination as a means of “playing or reading” it, just as an imagined experience is played in the imagination as an actual scenario or living reality.

traveler
Likewise, just as the conscious mind can give the subconscious a thought that it will turn into a reality as an imagined experience that converts it from a series of words into the native tongue of the subconscious as an archetype or holistic pattern that’s a universal memory, which can be introduced into the subconscious as a way of giving it a prime directive that it’ll convert into a memory which is recalled in the imagination and becomes the basis for producing a corresponding outer reality as a personal experience of that idea. The subconscious, which doesn’t think in terms of “stories” as reliving memory, and doesn’t “make up” the memory out of it’s own conditioning that it then uses to produce physical realities and regulate biological processes designed to maintain equilibrium between the inner and the outer, and the upper and the lower, is the “medium” which “receives information” as ideas and patterns, from either the conscious-thinking mind, or the higher-feeling mind as vibration that shapes light into realities by imagining them, is being programmed from outside its present state and readily produces the physical equivalent of the thoughts and ideas its given.

 
When directives come from the conscious mind as thoughts attached to intense emotions, born out of recycled memories from the past, they are often fragmented, sporadic, and incoherent. They lack consistency because they’re not based on the actual conditions and circumstances of the present, but an illusion that’s replacing them that are no longer real or alive except in the imagination. When ideas come from the higher plane of our spiritual parent, they are holistic, have all the components for producing a harmonious reality and are directly connected to larger patterns currently being played out on a greater scale as a cohesive orchestration that brings about synchronistic connections and opportunities necessary to fulfill them, creating a new pattern as a natural form of evolution. By creating experiences that grow and expand us into new experiences, we create new memories of those experiences that program and upgrade our existing mental paradigm to produce more of the same type of experiences as an outgrowth.

earthmother
Spiritual guidance, working by way of natural laws that govern the mind, work through the induction of ideas as feelings that produce strong emotional imagery as dream-like, virtual realities that act as “memory” for the subconscious, which connects to that same idea in the external environment through resonance, and directs (influences) the conscious mind which forms thoughts of the same idea, creating a unified affect. When the three minds are resonating to the same vibratory pattern for creating reality in a harmonious and coherent manner, a quickening takes place, and things can come by what feels like magical means. Things come as a spontaneous series of synchronistic coincidences that systematically unfold into a whole new experience, which comes easily because there’s no resistance counteracting it.

 
But what usually happens instead, because most people don’t understand the different aspects of their own mind or maintain an awareness of how they operate to produce their own life experiences, is spirit communicates thru feelings and mental impressions, that the conscious mind either ignores completely because it’s too caught up in its own illusion, or it resists by doubting it, arguing with it, or attempting to change it so it can keep telling the same story. If it doesn’t “fit into” our story, we change it so it does, distorting it. The subconscious mind is then caught in the conflict, one canceling out or contradicting the other, and so whatever one is more persistent or intense, wins out. Because the higher mind is not “of” the material plane and is “subtle” in nature and comes as intuitive notions or impressions around things, the conscious mind as the voice in our head usually wins out because its active on the material plane and is bound by the identity of its own creation, that determines what it can naturally align with and what it can’t. In order to tell a new story to create a new experience of ourselves requires surrender and self-sacrifice by the self-conscious mind of the identity and ego, which usually chooses to argue instead, and passionately defends its story while justifying its right to keep it. This self-made identity becomes the ego as the “false self” which creates itself purely by way of the physical realm and the story it tells itself about who it is and why.

 
The self-conscious mind, through self-realization and awareness, also has the ability to forfeit its illusion in favor of a new story that will evolve and grow it into new realities that offer brand new experiences that will transform and evolve the identity to a higher and new form of expression. But in order to accept the guidance of the Higher-self, we have to realize our story is a mere fabrication as a story we began telling ourselves in an attempt to make sense of things by making them “mean something”, that we then ultimately used as the basis for conditioning ourselves to that story. By giving up our story, we come face-to-face with our identity, and we realize that we don’t know how to tell another story. In opening ourselves to tell a new type of story we have to expose ourselves to being vulnerable and trusting that we’ll know what to do in a brand new situation, and embrace our creativity with a kind of enthusiastic anticipation of the possibilities.

heaven

By embracing and standing in our creativity, while fully sensing the insecurity it brings as a lack of “knowing” and reassurance that everything’s going to be alright, and stepping wide-eyed into the unknown filled with a sense of anticipation, and a deep seated fear we struggle frantically to manage by containing it, we can return ourselves from a stationary redundant position of habitual routines, to one of fresh newness and intense stimulation, that courageously encounters and resolve our fears, and as a result evolving us into more and more expansive forms of growth that force us from our prison of fear by willfully transforming our limited beliefs. It’s our beliefs about ourselves that confine us to a mundane existence of struggling and suffering to desperately maintain boredom out of fear of change. Change brings growth and stimulates new qualities in us that transform us from the outside-in, and from the inside-out. The Spirit, which is pure potential as consciousness that shapes reality (astral light) out of ideas (vibratory patterns), exists in a fundamental state of creativity as an evolutionary flow that moves spontaneously from one idea into another. No resistance or containing, simply a joyful expansion into new parts of itself that it comes to know for the first time in a fleeting moment of unfolding and enfolding.

 
Spirit is always urging us to continue growing and expanding by returning our story to an evolving state of continuous growth and development. When we get stuck in redundant patterns and refuse to willingly move out of them through fear of not knowing who we are or if we’ll be okay, spirit is always gently prompting us to resolve patterns and reform into new ones. We often receive (are aware of) guidance at certain points, but are unwilling to utilize it or cling to the need to know how it will turn out before we’re willing to try, encountering first hand the very fears that limit us to those patterns that we consistently back-down to, each time, dying a little more, securing our prison wall formed of imaginary fears that only exist because of the power we give them in determining us. After denouncing creative ideas and refusing to act on them as the pathway to our destiny, we shut down communication, and resort to praying only in moments of desperation or mental anguish, and because we have become indifferent to the messages we receive as the answers that will require us to act powerfully in our own lives, we feel “no messages” are coming through, experience a form of disconnect, then imagine we’ve been abandoned by God. Usually, without ever realizing that it was us that first abandoned God and ourselves, all in the same act of choosing to ignore all the answers we don’t like, or that seem to difficult, and then resort to asking the same questions over and over, until we get an answer we want.

Guidance, both from above and self-directed, serve to program the subconscious by giving it a pattern as a potential reality to create out of that produces our life story and how we experience the events of our life. When our Higher Consciousness introduces a suggestion as a seeded reality into the subconscious, that’s realized by the self-conscious mind, which chooses to align itself to the idea of the Higher Will, forming a cohesive harmony by using it to tell new stories about things, wrapping our identity around it, dreams come true, life appears magical, and things naturally come about of their own volition. When we receive an idea that we feel is “in us”, engrained in us as a kind of imprint, the only thing that prevents it from coming to be, or makes it seem impossible or a struggle to do, is our own resistance to it. Our resistance comes by what we tell ourselves “about” it, about what it’ll mean, or about why we can’t do it, or because it conflicts with other areas of our life that we’d have to give up in order to move forward into it, and so on. By simply examining your own thoughts around an idea, you can see how or in what way you lack congruence and act in a roundabout way to counteract or sabotage the idea, and miss the opportunity to use it as a life-creation tool that its designed for.

 

 

All guidance is a form of self-guidance (Higher self), and all problems with utilizing our own guidance for ourselves is the struggle that takes place internally in response to our own thoughts being delivered from different perspectives. The Higher Self sees and is always working with the “big picture” and overall patterns that involve long-term outcomes produced by strategic intervention that benefit everyone involved; the subconscious mind is in the present moment and seeks only self-preservation; and the self-conscious mind is looking at the future from the perspective of the past and can only see what matches it, and is unwilling to consider anything that’s outside of its present scope and identity, and fears the idea of growth as having to encounter the unknown, requiring trust, faith, and believing that where you’re being led is where you really need to go and is what will provide you with the lessons you need to systematically overcome your perceived limitations as fear, insecurity, and uncertainty, and instead embrace your true potential as internal qualities still waiting to be born and actualized by way of the proper stimulation that only comes through real life events. The conscious mind sees itself “as” the body (ego), and changing its identity is perceived as a form a death. Spirit is always acting to facilitate our growth by overcoming our imagined limitations and habituated patterns of perception. It’s always urging us to break free from our own illusions that act to imprison us in a mundane reality of overwhelming self-imposed limitations born out of forgetting “who” we actually are. It urges us to step into a fearless state of self-propelled evolution, and create ourselves anew in every moment by tuning into the intuitive impressions constantly whispering to us, and merging with them becoming the means through which they express and using them to recreate ourselves by way of them.

Development is based on Growth that Activates Latent Potential – “What we speak to, we call Forth in Others”

vp eye

“What we speak to, we call Forth as a Joint-Reality”

In any person or entity (group, business, or organization) we can only grow or increase what we already possess in terms of latent potential that’s not being utilized. We don’t grow or expand our range of expression by figuring out what we don’t have or what’s missing, then trying to figure out the means to acquire it. Everything we need to fulfill our destiny, is already present in us, and simply needs to be awakened and developed through practice of some sort. When trouble shooting a situation, it’s not about finding what’s wrong and fixing it, which always introduces doubt and undermines confidence, it’s about finding what talent or ability is inherent in the situation (or person), that’s not being fully utilized. In utilizing the untapped potential as action and behavior that the potential implies, the problems simply go away and don’t even need to be pointed out or addressed.

 
How we orientate ourselves in any situation determines our process. Perspective always determines approach. What we look for we find. What we expect, we act unconsciously to create. What we talk too, and talk about, we create as a joint reality. What we talk “to” in others, we stimulate, bring out in them as mental and emotional impressions, that call forth the reality in them as a means of planting a seeded idea in them, that we then grow and develop into a certain dynamic through our interaction with them that shapes it into an idea or belief that becomes a story of some kind. Usually without ever recognizing that they didn’t naturally perceive that reality and wasn’t acting to create it until we suggested it, and convinced them to agree with us. Once we give the suggestion as an idea, and begin growing and developing it by how we interact with them by how we present the idea, we get others to agree with us by being able to see the same thing the same way we do, and they begin unknowingly cooperating in creating the same reality as a joint experience.

balance energy
We’re always acting on others to shape them according to us. Teaching them how to be like us, and to share in our story about things. To buy into and agree with our psychology by sharing our reality as a means of validating and supporting it. Our paradigm as our model of the world, determines what we see, and also what eludes us. We can only “see” what’s of the same nature and can be explained or meaningfully interpreted using our model. What’s not the same we either transform by how we interpret it or we fail to recognize it all together. We only see aspects of ourselves in others, and act through resonance to stimulate and make active in them the same aspects by how we interact with them. By how we behave, what we say, and how we say it. The attitude we employ at any given moment, effects everyone around us by first awakening the same emotional state in them as a correspondence to us, then how we treat them that stimulate mental images as memories that work together to form an inner representation as an experience of us associated to a past experience of some sort. How they experience us forms an association that serves to trigger an automatic reaction anytime they’re near us, or at the mere thought of us. If the association is positive, they gravitate towards us and feel better when we’re around. If the association is negative, they try to avoid us, and become anxious or uncomfortable when we’re around.

“A person may not remember your name or what you do . . . but they’ll always remember how you made them feel”

When we approach people and situations with an attitude of fault-finding delivered as some form of criticism or pointing out their errors (according to our opinion) it always undermines confidence and introduces self-doubt that will actually act to perpetuate the problem. Psychologically this acts to increase the tendency to make errors through second-guessing themselves, or out of fear of trying. If instead we identify the error and what should be done instead as a solution or what will naturally resolve the error as a correct behavior, and we take an attitude of teaching by demonstrating the desired behavior, with an attitude of creating understanding, we create a positive experience that reinforces confidence and improves performance. By creating positive growth-oriented experiences, we bond with others in a way that instills trust and a deep sense of loyalty.

 
Through a fundamental understanding of psychology and the creative process indicated through natural laws of the mind (reality), and our ability to apply that knowledge to our everyday situation by how we conduct our lives, we can create and deliberately construct instead of acting in a destructive manner without any direct awareness that that’s what we’re actually doing. True intelligence is the understanding of law as patterns with distinct behaviors in them that function in predictable ways and give us a process for creating by working in the world by way of law strategically building them into our psychology through the dedicated practice that develops our style in accordance to them. To align with the greater will, is to operate through law which governs all life within the physical domain, and creates intelligently as a result.

The Power of Words – “Vibrating Realities”

afterlife-soul
While we often have a general sense of how words act to affect us, and certainly their value in terms of expressing ideas by forming mental images implied and invoked by the words themselves, but because we use words all the time without much thought or in a deliberate manner, we often fail to recognize the power of words to call forth and vibrate living realities as our internal creations. It’s a popular belief amongst many spiritual or magical traditions that words possess a power that exercises a direct influence over spiritual beings, and put great creative power at our disposal when spoken properly. But this simply isn’t so. The name or word only exercises influence over the person using it based on what idea or special qualities are associated with the word, and what mental impression it elicits as a result. The power of the spoken word (internally or externally) is as the generator of experience of the being or reality the word represents in symbolic form.

 
Words simply act to invoke a memory as an internal experience of some form. Words are first spoken within as thoughts that form realities of our own personal creation, that are then spoken outward to others as a means of invoking the same reality in them by the words we use as a means of expressing the internal creation, and “how” we say them by the feelings and emotion in our voice as we relive the reality in our mind that the words convey. The emotion created through the experience that’s expressed through the quality of our voice in speaking them “is” the vibration they hold for us.

 
To vibrate a word is to be in the experience of what the word expresses. We have to make the sound of the vibratory frequency from within the experience of it. We have to become one with it in order to become the means through which it expresses outward into the world through us, as us. So it’s not a grammatical pronunciation that activates the power in a word, but rather the emotional state elicited through the experience the word symbolizes and forms in the imagination of the recipient. I’ve seen people take a great deal of time and effort in practicing the pronunciation of certain ‘sacred words’, often in a different language, thinking somehow that the proper vibration was in the correct grammar, while never actually realizing the state of the reality that the word simply named or symbolically represented that was simply meant to invoke the experience of it in the person’s imagination. The vibration as a pattern is formed naturally in the imagination as a conceptualization that represents the word as a physical form.

 
The true power lies in what forces we call forth, draw up into us, and associate to the name as mental impressions that induce an experience of the word that we fashion into a memory. The memory is the reality associated to the word that the word represents. All words and names numerically represent an idea as a living form or vibrating reality. If no idea or quality of being is associated to a word, and it doesn’t act to call forth a special type of experience in response to it, then it has no power. This is how knowledge has remained “hidden” for eons is because only those educated that know the right associations to a word, that form the proper idea in their mind when hearing or seeing the word, understand the idea its conveying.

 
The elementals of the astral plane, which are experienced as emotions, are not commanded and directed (stimulated and called forth) by abstract words, but fashioned into light-forms by the imagination that induce emotions while acting to awaken and command those same emotions in others. What the words themselves act to invoke as an internal reality that draw into us the forces that produce a sensory experience of it as real. The emotions that are experienced demonstrate its potency to act on the external world, and the form it takes on is a correspondence to the shape associated with the name as a classification (archetype) of sorts. The only power an abstract idea or neutral object has is by way of the power we give it by what we associate to it, and what belief as a personal creation we imbue it with.

 
Words, in the ultimate sense are like a personal Talisman that we can use strategically as an anchor for instantly inducing a state of mind that has whole realities inherent in it as our co-creative abilities to directly influence and therefore direct and “act on” the outer world accordingly. Our power to influence others lies in our ability to intentionally elicit an emotional state and the realities associated with it as an internal imagining, and then interact with others out of that state by what we say (words we use) and how we say it (feeling content), calling forth the same emotional state in them as a result. The emotion is the common denominator. Emotions are associated to memories (as a saved experience) that have whole patterns in them as templates for creating realities. Vibration is memory.

Stress is a Reactive Pattern – How we Interpret the Events of our Life to Create our Experience

mental energy
While we know that stress is the underlying cause of most illness and disease, the term “stress” is typically used in a very vague manner that lacks any real definition. We can only work with something in a deliberate and intentional manner when we understand it and can relate to how it applies to not only our physical health, but also our mental and emotional well-being. We can start by first identifying objective forms of stress from subjective forms. We have to recognize stress that’s outwardly or environmentally produced and beyond our control, as opposed to stress that’s produced inwardly by our own thoughts, emotions, and how we imagine things.

 
Outward stress naturally caused by environmental conditions, while they elicit an inward response necessary to maneuver or survive them through the “fight or flight” response that’s more of an instinctual and automatic reaction, that’s not produced by our thoughts, but exists as a real threat or actual physical danger, subsides automatically as soon as the conditions change or the threat of danger has passed, and we naturally return to a relaxed state. Inward stress is what happens when that same physical response is produced by our own thoughts and ways of perceiving the world. This kind of stress is more of a conditioned response as a habitual way of interpreting our experience that perceives them as threatening, dangerous, painful, warranting possible loss, or as just plain overwhelming.

 
We literally stress ourselves out by how we physically react to our own thoughts. We interpret the events of our life in such a way that it produces fear of some kind, which evokes an emotional reaction to our thinking (or vice versa), and our emotional state is the experience of our endocrine system producing hormones that “prepare our body” to react to perceived danger through the “fight or flight” response, which is usually translated into an over-reaction as an exaggeration that either forms aggressive, and attacking behavior, or cause a person to turn inward and internalize things, ultimately shutting themselves off from the outside world and isolating themselves as a means of coping. It tends to produce extremes of one form or another.

circuitry

By examining how we experience different emotions, we can realize that fear and the onslaught of negative emotions that stem from it are felt in the body as contractions that form tension that causes an anxious feeling that also forms our state-of-mind or how we feel. This state of mind then becomes the filtering mechanism for interpreting and transforming all our experiences through that state, making them stressful also, just by how we present them to ourselves and how we think about them. When we feel fear a lot, or our conditioned mind-set is constructed largely of negative memories born out of stressful experiences, we keep our body in a constant stimulated state based on our own perceptions that we’ve been conditioned to that form the basis for how we experience the events of our life.

 
It’s easy to see that people that are overly-emotional, meaning they’re always outwardly expressing strong emotions of some kind, are also very stressful to be around. This is because whatever emotion one person is experiencing and projecting, as behaviors that express that emotional state, stimulates those same emotions in everyone they come into contact with, causing them to take on the same emotional state and produce very similar behaviors by how they interact. Emotions are what connect us to others and our environment. A person that’s stressed out tends to stress everyone that’s around them out also. An angry person infects everyone around them with anger, and their interaction becomes one that intensifies and escalates the feeling of anger in both, propagating it, shaping their expression to the dynamic being acted out, and strengthening it in both people.

 
Negative emotions are so much more impacting than positive ones because they stimulate a whole series of biological processes in the body in response to them, which are then associated to the perception of those emotions, connecting them to ways of thinking and behaving that form tension in the body that can be hard to shake, even when what caused the fear initially subsides. Positive emotions have the opposite effect, and produce a relaxed and free feeling in the body, returning it to a positive and balanced state. The stress that’s held in the body from negative emotions, can become habitual ways of perceiving the world, and are lived out of as a normal disposition, form a vast array of health problems directly associated to the “fight or flight” response that produce distinct physical properties that alter the regulation of the body and how it functions. The number one disease that it produces as a direct and identifiable correlation is heart and vascular disease, as well as numerous digestive issues, autoimmune disorders, muscle and joint pain, chronic migraine headaches, chronic depression, fatigue, and various forms of mental dementia (deterioration).

The body is always responding to and being regulated by the mind in terms of how we tend to think, what we focus on, what we tell ourselves about what we focus on, and the emotional reaction to our own thoughts that release hormones in the body that alter our “state” to match the nature of the internal representations we’re producing in our imagination that produce and regulate biological processes that prepare the body for the reality of the thoughts as an ‘actual’ outer condition. By way of this mental and emotional process, we’re always using our mind to reformulate our body as the physical equivalent of our thoughts. Our thoughts and emotions are always connected, and our emotions are either produced as a natural reaction to our thoughts, or our thoughts are produced by our emotions, both of which combine to form a kind of memory. Whatever idea that corresponds to a memory we have that’s being acted out around us, stimulates that memory in us through association, and determines what we think and how we feel. We’re always either drawing ideas into us as universal memory (not personal in nature) that stimulate a natural chain reaction of thought, emotion, feeling sensation, and behaviors, or, we’re using memory stored in the body from our conditioning that produces an automatic emotional state. Our emotional state determines what we focus on and what meaning we give it that shapes it into an internal representation as our “inner reality” that shapes our outer reality as a correlation.

 
This basic formula which operates according to natural laws, is identifying the mind-body relationship by recognizing that stress, caused by the mind is the underlying cause of most health conditions. The only way to alter the conditions of the body is to alter the conditions of the mind, which is producing it subconsciously. Because the greater part of this process is operating all the time just below our level of awareness, meaning, we don’t really have an awareness of why we tend to think and feel the way we do because it’s so automatic and natural, we are creating our physical health by way of it without actually realizing it, and so we often don’t make the connection.

 
The easiest way to work with this natural process to change how it manifests is by working with the subconscious aspect of the mind which is also the aspect of the mind that operates and exists as the body itself. It’s through this aspect of the mind that we can access and work directly with memory and the emotional, imaginary or visual mental impressions that are actually the key component that contain all other aspects of the equation as the overall idea or pattern of the memory being expressed and therefore used to create. By transforming memories held in the subconscious mind, we can change how we feel, what ideas we run through our mind as a form of natural thinking, and how we create our experiences as a result.

 
Memories are what we use to propagate realities that become more memories of the same idea or theme that we used to create them. Whatever memories we use to create our present experiences, form a theme that’s used to form fractal patterns as offspring that are of the same nature and hold true to the same basic idea. All outward growth comes by way of the inward reformulation of the same basic group of components by how we apply and adapt them to the present to create a new variation as a modified version, tweaked only by how we apply it. Each time we recall a memory from the past, we modify it slightly as an adjustment to our current level of maturity, and by how we lay it over our current situation, and use it as the means of interpreting our current situation to “mean” the same thing as the past situation. This act alone upgrades and modifies the memory making it appropriate for creating in the present. As we integrate the present into the past, we grow and evolve the past by way of the present, which sets the basis for the future. We grow in our life based on how we act to transform the memories that we are comprised of through a constant form of adaptation that incorporates new elements or aspects of the present into the past, reformulating it into a variation of itself that’s applicable and meaningful in the present.

geometric dreams

Memory, which also makes up the universal mind (archetypes), the soul, and the DNA of the physical body, combine through correspondences as being of the same frequency as a pattern (memory) for producing reality, and adapt and adjust to each other through resonance, forming a modified pattern that combine elements from both to form a new memory that evolves both at the same time. This new memory of the soul, and the heredity of the body, continue to evolve together through the experiences they create that become the memory of this lifetime as their natural offspring produced by how they interact and enter into relationship with everything around them, using the newly acquired elements to evolve and modify the primary memory into new versions of itself that exist in the present in a logical and appropriate manner.

 
This process of two beings comprised of a whole series of similar memories combining and intermixing their memories to form a new whole (patterning) then consistently absorb and mix with the elements around them that they restructure into the same basic patterns as the memory of the individual, upgrading and transforming their combined memory into new wholes (combinations) of the same frequency, is the basis of all life and how everything is in a dynamic form of growth by evolving its coagulated memory into new forms by how it absorbs, assimilates, and utilizes memory around it that’s similar to it and can be readily incorporated in a congruent and logical manner to tell the same type of story, creating the same type of experiences over and over. This is represented by the trinity, or the idea of parents that birth offspring that’s a combination of both parents to form a new whole as a unique individual.

 
Through this series of laws, the theme that first forms in our life through our conditioning, which is the formulation of combined memory from our soul and body to form new memory that’s used as our primary perceptual lens to interpret the events of our life, forming what we think of as our childhood experiences, become the memory of our formative conditioning that is used to interpret all our experiences of our life giving them the same basic meaning and recreating the same basic type of experiences throughout our life. The summation of the past up to this point forms the basis for how we interact with the present. We only perceive and take in around us what’s of the same nature as we are, which means, it’s of the same frequency as a theme, and can be readily interpreted by our theme as our perceptual lens (accumulated and synthesized memory) to form new experiences that are of the same type as the past. This is the law demonstrated by the Fibonacci sequence as the law governing reproduction as self-regeneration.

 
So all we’re ever really capable at any moment of perceiving is whatever exists around us that’s similar to, congruent with, or within the same vibratory range as we are. It’s of a similar idea, and can therefore be recognized and understood. Whatever is considerably different and can’t be explained, fit into our story, or understood using our paradigm, we fail to perceive in a cognitive fashion. This doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist in the broader sense, it simply means we don’t recognize or relate to it, and therefore don’t “see it”. We don’t use it to form a modification of a basic idea that we hold about things by fitting it into our story.

brain circuit

What we call stress (outside of actual danger) comes by how we interpret events of our life, situations and behaviors by telling ourselves a story about them that make them mean something by how we present them to ourselves. We form ideas into an internal representation as a way of making sense of them by way of our mental paradigm, that give them meaning through the emotion they elicit in us, and we live out of this emotional representation as if it’s real and therefore true. We don’t realize that it only has the meaning we give it. We don’t realize that other people behave the way they do not because they have the same mental paradigm as we do, but because they’ve got their own story going on in their head, that may or may not even resemble ours. So while we interpret their behavior to mean what we think it means, without ever seeking to understand them by understanding their perspective and reason for doing whatever it is they’re doing, and realizing it didn’t have anything to do with us, but was simply showing us something about them. By realizing this, we can examine how we present things to ourselves, what type of meaning we tend to give things and what story we tell about them that creates our inner experience, and we can begin learning how to tell a different story by consciously working with our own memory base. By transforming our memories in a deliberate fashion, we can change how we perceive and interpret things. By changing our way of perceiving, we simultaneously change our physical responses and what emotions we tend to embody and live out of as a correspondence to our thoughts.

 
By identifying how we produce our physical condition through our thoughts and emotions, we simultaneously find the key for transforming our physical condition by transforming our mental paradigm. When we change how we think and what emotions we experience in response to our thoughts, we change how our body also responds to our thoughts. By learning how to intentionally keep our body in a relaxed state we can regulate our emotional state. Emotions produce matching physiology, and negative emotions create tension in the body. By simply preventing tension from forming in our body, we can control our emotions in an objective manner. By controlling our emotions we can simultaneously control our thoughts. Thought and emotion are always paired and form a combination that produces a physical manifestation in the body. Change or work with any one aspect – thought, emotion, and physiology – and you automatically change the other two as a correspondence. Negative or excited emotions always form tension in the body. Regulate the tension through relaxation techniques, and you “prevent” negative emotions that cause stressful thoughts from ever taking hold.

 
Likewise, a relaxed body naturally produces positive emotions. Not only does it feel good to relax, but the experience of positive emotions (especially love, beauty and reverence) naturally acts to relax the body as its physical equivalent. So by engaging in practices that naturally produce positive emotions, things that we love doing that also feel good, we simultaneously produce positive thoughts, a relaxed and healthy body, and improve how we experience life. In this way, we begin accumulating positive memories that transform our mental paradigm to be able to consistently and naturally produce more health promoting experiences and increase our enjoyment of life and deep sense of inner peace.

The Nature of a Paradigm Shift – “Altering your State as a shift in Vibratory Frequency”

afterlife-soul
In order to get a functional understanding of what happens during or by way of a paradigm shift, we have to break the idea down into its corresponding aspects, and how they function to create a unified perception that we call “reality” as personal experience. A paradigm represents a perceptual model as a dynamic patterning that’s an interwoven network of ideas (beliefs, values, preferences, memories, etc.) that work in a harmonious manner to co-create a consistent perception as a dynamic theme that incorporates all abstract and ultimately neutral ideas into a congruent story-line that’s fashioned according to the paradigm we use to view it through and the meaning we give things as a result. The meaning which forms the “theme” for the story we tell about something, and the reality we shape as a result, is the formative mechanism that reshapes everything into an offspring of itself by how we incorporate it into an over-all story which provides us with the means to explain or describe it in an attempt to make “sense of it”.

 
A paradigm can be thought of as a state-of-mind that’s a form of vibratory frequency that fluctuates within a set range of potential as a form of wave-length. Our state, which can also be thought of as our feeling-mood, determines what type of memories we’re capable of accessing, and what type of thoughts we think about as analogous to those memories, and what range of emotions we experience in response to them. A frequency as a state-of-mind or mood can only access memories as formed ideas that match that state (are of the same frequency), or that were created while in the same frame of mind, form the basic frequency of our paradigm as a form of habituated or fixated state as our normal state and the “basic model” (patterning) that we look through as a means of producing more of the same type of experiences. Memories serve as a filter for seeing through that (re)interprets everything to mean the same thing, and tell the same type of story about it as a result. In this way we develop themes out of “meaning”, that become our primary theme for telling stories about everything, that express the same meaning making them congruent with (an offspring of) our over-all life-story that we’re always in the process of telling. This is a form of holographic effect (the part is a smaller version of the whole), or how the mind produces fractal patterns as offspring of a larger, parental pattern. Fractals are smaller stories that are of the same nature (theme) as the larger story. It’s the basic law that governs regeneration as self-creation.

 

 

The paradigm we build up and maintain through telling a consistent story as a thematic interpretation that reforms everything to mean what we need it to mean in order to keep telling our story, becomes or reflects our state as a vibratory frequency that only has access to certain types of memory as the reality that the state naturally generates as an expression of it. When we experience a paradigm shift, which only comes through experience of some kind, it simultaneously alters our state of mind, and we obtain access to a different level of memory (thoughts and ideas) as perceptual abilities necessary to support a different type of reality as a modification of our existing model. Our mental model is our ‘perceptual lens’ which acts as a filtering mechanism which abstracts from the environment only what matches it as elements that can be reformed through an interpretation that makes them mean something different by the story we tell about it.

A paradigm shift upgrades our model by restructuring it into a new configuration that allows us to view things in a new way and see something different or more as a result. Once a paradigm shift takes place, and we acquire the ability to look at things from a whole new perspective, and we begin building more ideas out of the new perspective, undergoing consistent shifts as a form of evolutionary unfolding or quickening, it alters our overall state as our mental atmosphere, which makes new ideas available, while cutting off other ideas that were formulated and born out of the perception that the old model formed. After a series of shifts that serve to upgrade and modify our current model, the perceptions of the old model fade, become vague and detached, and in some cases forgotten all together.

 
For this reason, once a drastic enough shift has taken place, we can no longer function out of the mentality of our previous version. In some cases when the growth is substantial, you literally lose the memory of that level altogether, and can’t relate to it any more. Because of this factor, as we grow and alter our state as our vibratory frequency, our life-style and situations change as the new behaviors that are formed out of the new perceptions. Relationships that were formed while in the previous paradigm no longer support us, and instead act to hold us back by holding us to the level of consciousness we were at when we developed them, and the group paradigm (behavioral dynamic) that formed as the basis of the relationship itself. Any relationship that doesn’t naturally grow together by the same means or through shared interests has a limited life-span and is ultimately grown beyond and replaced with a sense of alienation, no longer relating to one another.

 
This is very common in relationships of all kinds, but especially in intimate relationships. Personal relationships where one person is growing and developing themselves and thereby undergoing constant change, and the other person isn’t, naturally grow apart. The one that doesn’t grow, or grows in a different way, only acts to hold the other person to the old way of being, and therefore acts to stagnate their growth. This creates a feeling of frustration from being held back or of having the past always brought up as a means of establishing the present to be a continuation or more of the same. Often others won’t allow our growth or don’t understand it and act in ways that attempt to hold us to the same patterns or ways of being that we’ve grown beyond, and so their behaviors towards us no longer stimulate the same response.

A paradigm shift as a shift in our vibratory frequency or soul’s mood and mental outlook, creates a ripple effect that ultimately acts to transform all areas of our life to incorporate the modification and begin expressing a new reality as a result. Those dedicated to growth as the attainment and application of knowledge, keep themselves in a constant state of transformation as personal evolution, and their life directly reflects it as constant changes in how they live, feel and think. Because of this they seldom remain in one situation for an extended period of time unless they can grow within that situation and transform it as a correlation to and with themselves.

 
As we grow and transform ourselves, we literally lose access to any memory of the previous state. We can’t remember what we used to feel, or how we thought, or what our perception of something was. We lose touch with our past and our beginning and become totally submerged in the present, while developing and building up ideas as new forms of experience produced by a new level of perception, that allows us to constantly create a new world on a moment-by-moment basis as being “in” the flow of life, which at some point, once growth and transformation has been established as the norm, becomes a way of life. If we begin fixating and living out of definite ideas about things that no longer breathe and grow into endless variations through unique applications, and instead settle into a ritualistic life of mundane habits, we stop the flow of life, stop growing and expanding as an individual, and begin the slow process of dying through mental decay. We begin losing interest in life, fear change, cling mercilessly to security, and quit trying new things or curiously craving new experiences.

 
By transforming our paradigm, altering our state and raising or expanding or vibratory frequency, we tune into different ideas as the building blocks for reality and how we identify with our own creations. You don’t have to overcome your past or keep living out of the same memories while telling the same type of stories and succumbing to unconscious tendencies. All we have to do is attain knowledge consistently through devoted study that undergoes a constant growth process that systematically modifies our paradigm, shifting our vibration, and losing the ability to access old memories, while creating a new form of reality out of new ideas born in the present, that evolve and grow the memories themselves as the new experiences which serve to alter our character and our identity and how we experience (create) life that lives a new kind of story as a natural expression. In this way we grow our soul by evolving it to new and higher states, by employing the knowledge of God as Universal laws that we move into and become one with in order to use them in our own life and transform ourselves by becoming more “god-like”. Because all of life operates according to the same set of laws, by gaining knowledge of and becoming one with God as Law, we create in an intelligent and deliberate manner, instead of creating in error due to ignorance of Natural laws and our ability to use them in a deliberate manner with a sense of awareness.

Just as we transform the memories of this life by growing beyond them to a higher frequency as a general state-of-mind that we act to cultivate, we also change our soul’s memory by the experiences it creates, resolving karma born out of unconscious memory directly associate to state and the reality it produces as an inherent pattern. By shifting our paradigm, we shift our perception of reality, and we “change” the patterns as themes for producing experiences as the creator of that reality. The vibratory state we cultivate and maintain through the acquisition of higher-knowledge, alters the reality produced by our mind as a projection or filters used for interpretation that restructure it into themes that give it meaning and forms stories out of it that express and give life to the meaning, making it “real” as a personal creation.

 
By shifting our paradigm, we shift our whole life experience that’s produced by it, and evolve ourselves accordingly. Yet knowledge that’s only attained in theory, and held as a form of intellectual exercise that’s never actually applied and learned through experience, doesn’t produce an actual paradigm shift. Only the application of that knowledge to produce an experience of it (create by way of it), integrates it instantaneously and systematically modifies all areas of our paradigm that pertain to it. Experience is a synthesizing mechanism that sets or alters our vibration. We only “know” through direct experience and are no longer required to believe. Experience becomes memory as a form of thematic programming that shapes and transforms us according to our own creations as the expression of our paradigm or vibratory patterning as a dynamic matrix for generating personal realities.

 
Experience is what “vibrates us”, not the mere thought or imagining. These merely form the patterns as conceptualization necessary to produce a form of template as a mini-model that provides the means for structuring experience accordingly. Experience is becoming the channel for the knowledge in physical form that creates an experience that forms new memory for creating more of the same type of experiences. We become the channel for knowledge as the expression of it, or the means by which it experiences itself through us, as us. Only experience as present awareness modifies our vibratory frequency as our soul’s essence and becomes an engrained part of us that’s eternal in nature and carried forward into the death state forming the basis for the vibratory frequency of other incarnations as our subconscious mind, predisposition and natural tendencies. The mind is a reality generating machine that produces thematic experiences based on its vibratory frequency and the information carried on that frequency. To change our creative ability to structure experience, we have to change our mind, in the most literal sense of actual perception that forms our natural behavior, all of which are ultimately our own creation.
