“17” – The Star, Hope, and Rebuilding after the Destruction of Illusion

In the Hermetic Arcane of the Tarot, the archetypal idea of the “star”, which is Key 17, follows the “the Lightning Struck Tower” (Key 16) which represents the destruction of illusion (Key 15) and is what prompts the “the dark night of the soul” as an identity crisis that comes as the “dissolution of the false ego”. The tower represents the material illusion that’s destroyed by the Light of Truth in a shocking revelation that frees the soul that was imprisoned by its own delusions, providing a clean slate on which a new reality can be built that’s based on higher Truth. Key 17 is represented by the Hebrew letter “TZADDI”, and has a value of 90, and like all spelling and numeric values of archetypal ideas, provides those initiated in the Mysteries with a form of secret code that acts as a set of instructions for how to undergo the process involved in a fully conscious manner.

Each letter in the spelling of the word indicates the Key associated with that letter, and also forms a numeric equation out of the value of the individual letters. This code is designed to help us gain deeper insights into its true meaning. All archetypes and symbols of the Tarot provide us with Keys for interpreting all other systems of Spiritual Sciences through a dynamic series of correspondences. It’s through the intuitive interpretation of the symbolic language that all of the Mysteries are written in that we discover “hidden operations” that provide us with a form of “instruction” for undergoing the process of personal transformation as rising out of the darkness of illusion and into the light of Truth.

The word Tzaddi means “fish hook”, signifying that which draws the fish (Nun) out of the water (Mem). Fish is the symbol of Nun (Key 13) which represents “death” as the process of spiritual transformation, and Mem (Key 12), symbol of the Initiate, represents a complete change in perspective and attitude. Water represents personal existence of the higher Soul as the reflection cast within the subconscious mind. It’s the ocean of subconscious mentality (instinctual plane) that projects the whole of reality as a reflection of the etheric body fashioned on higher planes by the Human Soul. The symbol of a fish represents death as the transformative and regenerative powers of the spirit. This idea symbolizes the “activity” which lifts us up out of the material relations of personal existence by utilizing the reproductive forces of the soul’s regenerative agency.

The fish hook is a symbol of “angling”, which is related to the idea of experimentation, research into new ideas, and the quest undertaken as the means of growing into something more. It’s the quest after that which hasn’t been realized yet, and a form of searching that’s often called “fishing for ideas”. This represents the journey into your own subconscious mind (water) where you investigate what can’t be seen in order to solve enigmas, realize what lies hidden within you, and begin forming new realizations that lead you along a new path for solving a mystery. The value of “90” indicates a 90 degree turn in perspective and how you go about things, where you draw on a higher plane (vertical line) for original ideas instead of the material (horizontal) plane of human activity. 9 is the number of completion as a perfected state (Key 9), which comes by learning how to program your own subconscious mind using your higher mind, represented by Key 18, which proceeds out of Key 17.

The image used to represent this idea shows a beautiful naked woman with golden hair (solar energy), knelled down with one foot on land and the other in a pool of water, holding a vessel in each hand, one gold and one silver, with water pouring out of one into the pool and being drawn back up into the other, in a natural landscape with a tree in the background that has an ibis perched on a branch, and a snowy mountain peak in the background. Overhead is a central 8-pointed star (higher octave) with seven 8-pointed stars surrounding it in a circular pattern (Monad). The ibis in the tree is a scarlet ibis, which is the symbol of Hermes representing higher wisdom. As with all glyphs that serve to communicate higher wisdom, every aspect and detail represents an idea or aspect of the greater whole. Every number, color, symbol, geometric shape, and definition articulated within the arrangement is pertinent in understanding the whole idea as a “process” based on the “relationships” necessary for undergoing the operation indicated by its entire composition. The part is always a direct correspondence to the whole.

Function and Mode of Consciousness

The Function associated with this idea is “meditation” as the unbroken flow of higher knowledge into an “appropriate object”. We tune into and receive higher knowledge from within through the agency of the subconscious mind. All manifestation as perception is produced by the programming of our subconscious, which is the “passive and receptive aspect” of our mind that’s operated by our higher will. This represents the “conception” of ideas into the subconscious that are reflected in our mind and serve as a form of guidance for manifestation as our personal existence. The germinal process of both plants and animals takes place in darkness. This represents the mental unfoldment of ideas that are not already fully developed as the “genesis of ideas”. This is the process of all new inventions and creative manifestations that are unique and novel in nature and don’t come through the reformation of personal memory. This comes as ideas that are mentally “tuned into” and “drawn down” from the higher regions of the “astral plane” (starlight) of cosmic memory.

The Mode of Consciousness represented by 17 is “Natural Intelligence”, which comes as intuition. Natural intelligence comes as the awareness of the “hidden qualities” in all things and is arrived at through an ongoing state of meditation. This is not the type of meditation popularized in Western society, but is referring to a state that’s cultivated on an ongoing basis as a constant connection to our Higher Self as our natural way of being. It comes by quieting the random thoughts that are constantly playing out in your mind based on personal memory, rendering your “thinking” mind passive while connecting to your direct source of higher consciousness, and acting as a circuit for “streaming” higher consciousness to form all of your perceptions. This is the true secret to occult power. All powers can only be developed by intense concentration as a prolonged state of meditation.

Numeric Code of Principles

Like all numeric combinations, the numbers used represent principles that provide us with a code for gaining deeper insights into their meaning. 17 > 1 + 7 = 8. Some only look at the sum as being the meaning, but this is a mistake, because numbers represent relationships. The sum of an equation shows us what principle is represented through the full manifestation of all numbers that comprise it. There’s no such thing as an independent idea, and everything exists as a part of a greater whole and serves to show us its hidden aspects. 8 for example, is the full manifestation of the numbers 1 through 7. Key 8 represents using the higher agency of the human will (Key 7) to tame the lower animal-nature (etheric body) used for casting the shadow of personal existence.

 The number 8 represents the principle of “strength” as the soul’s ability to tame and direct its own animal nature through concentration of will. This represents the secret to transformation comes by using our higher mind to introduce new ideas into our etheric-body, which serves as the energetic matrix for manifestation. We only change our outer world by making the necessary changes to our inner world. All manifestation as personal existence comes “through us” and “by way of us” as our perception. In order to change our experiences we have to reprogram our own subconscious and upgrade our mental paradigm.

Number 1 (Magus) symbolizes directed attention as an undivided form of prolonged concentration. As we concentrate on an idea we connect with it internally and “enter into it” as a stream of consciousness, and lose all awareness of ourselves as being separate from it. As we become an idea in mind and spirit through the faculty of our imagination, it moves us deeper and deeper into its essential nature and we experience it from within it, as it. As we look at it from the inside out, we experience our self in new ways that bring a flow of new insights and realizations that transform our way of being and perceiving. All powers are only developed by “becoming them” in mind and body as a unified whole or singularity. 8 is the number of the octave that forms a greater whole that’s comprised of 7 aspects, which when harmonized form a progression as “steps to a higher level of consciousness” on a higher plane of existence.

The number 7 represents the human will exercised as speech and the spoken word that works to organize light-essence into the form indicated by the meaning of the words. We all call forth our reality by how we think and speak. Sound is comprised of 7 primary notes that make up a whole scale, and directly corresponds to the 7 colors of the spectrum, which together form our sensory reality. Sound is vibration that has both a pattern and an organizing agency in it that serves to shape light into the pattern as a reality. It operates first through the power of the imagination, forming a kind of “metaphorical lens” that we look through in order to reorder the outer reality to be of the same nature and idea as the inner one. As we think, we imagine the reality of our thoughts, and the imaginary reality serves as a form of instruction and command for the subconscious to produce as a corresponding outer experience of the same type and kind. We exercise our will to create our personal existence through our thoughts, which form the basis for our outer speech and all of our activities.

The 8-pointed star overhead is yellow, like the hair of the woman, and signifies cosmic energy, and forms the geometric shape that’s similar to the 8-spoked “wheel of fortune”, symbolic of personal destiny. All of our material creations come by mentally using an actual force which has a definite physical form of expression. 4 + 4 = 8, represents the fact that the same physical form (4) exists on both the upper planes of spirit and the lower plane of material manifestation as correspondences and mirror images of each other that are mediated through the mind. Meditation transmutes and modifies this cosmic energy into a personal expression (7) through “nerve-force”. 8 represents an octave as a whole unit comprised of 7 levels of sound and color as a progression that builds upon itself in order to culminate into a higher vibration. The summation of one octave forms the base note for the next higher octave. This represents the process necessary to raise our vibration to a higher level by reprogramming our subconscious through meditation and concentration on a higher ideal.

The 7 smaller stars that orbit the central one, are white, and refer to the “7 inner stars” of our subtle body (Key 8), which also correspond to the 7 notes of the musical scale, the 7 colors of the spectrum, the 7 planets of the zodiac, and 7 metals of alchemy. Each one represents a level and quality of consciousness. By focusing our attention upon the centers themselves, we stimulate them into an active state. Attention (1) is both a stimulating and organizing force of the will. By meditating on these centers we enter fully into them and gain realization around their hidden nature as aspects of our own subconscious mind. The higher will works through the etheric-double of the subtle organs of the subconscious to instruct, direct, and express through them.

This idea doesn’t represent meditating on things that are already created and fully manifest, but rather meditating on “modes of operation” as qualities of consciousness that also recognizes natural laws as interconnected to the larger whole. 8 symbolize the 7 aspects of God (mental states) that make up a greater whole which can be used as the means for evolving the greater whole to new levels of self-realization. In all Spiritual Sciences, such as the Kabbalah, each sphere represents a “type of experience” as a mental state that’s necessary in order to “enter into” and understand the knowledge it contains. We have to cultivate the proper state of mind in order to be able to vibrate at the frequency necessary to be able to conceive its inner knowledge. All knowledge of the higher planes of the mind is attained through sympathetic resonance. We have to work using our own mind to “become like” whatever it is that we desire to merge into and attain for ourselves.

We can also access higher knowledge as a form of intuitive conception by meditating on symbols and glyphs that arouse activity in corresponding spiritual centers without any danger of energetic congestion. We can concentrate on the archetypes symbolized in the Tarot, the Zodiac, or in Sacred Geometry, which will also act to arouse the energies associated with them in our imagination where they’ll unfold to reveal their hidden secrets to us. This method of accessing hidden knowledge is called “mental angling”, synonymous with “fishing”, where whatever we bait our hook with determines what we intend to attract and ultimately attain. This is the intended use of the Tarot and other universal sciences where symbolic ideas come to life by meditating on them as an operation performed naturally through a “quality of consciousness” as a mental state.

When we remove all attention from what’s already manifest in our life and instead embody the proper state, relinquishing all need to try and control it using preconceived ideas and needs, we’re able to conceive of brand new ideas and truly begin creating our experience of reality from a whole new level of awareness. The Tarot provides the Keys to the liberation of spiritual powers by the same method as the Patanjali Yoga Aphorisms. Beyond their symbolism are practical secrets of occultism which can’t be put into words and can only be known through direct experience (Gnosis).

The snowy mountain peak in the background is the symbol of the “Great Work” of Alchemy which comes through concentration on an ideal, constant striving as a means of self-development, and by cultivating virtues in a devoted manner. The scarlet ibis, symbol of Hermes, and its long bill is a fish hook used for fishing. The tree it’s perched on represents the human brain and nervous system, and symbolizes bringing intellectual activity as thought processes to rest by concentration. We have to stop thinking in order to meditate, and in the silence of our mind, Truth unveils herself to us as a stream of consciousness.

The woman symbolizes Hathor as Mother Nature and is the same woman symbolized in Key 8 (Strength) who tames the lion, symbol of our lower, animal-like nature, by opening its mouth. Meditation is largely the utilization and direction of the powers of deduction and imagination peculiar to the subconscious. Knowledge gained in meditation is gleaned through the imperishable record of the memory of Nature known as the Akashic Records. We render our body and mind as passive and inactive in order to act as a receiver of knowledge that’s currently unknown to us. We create the proper state of mind as the means of “tuning into” the sympathetic quality in the astral field of cosmic memory. We have to let go of our personal memory, which is what generates all of our experiences as the shaping mechanism for reality in order to tap into and absorb new memory that’s universal in nature and provides us with the basis for genesis. Genesis means the “genes of Isis”, which corresponds with Binah of the Kabbalah and the High Priestess of cosmic memory drawn down as the means of seeding the subconscious to produce personal experiences of the same type and kind. Meditation (Key 1) is how we work with our own mind to develop specific powers by directing the animal forces in human personality, symbolized by Key 8.

The pool of water symbolizes universal consciousness as the reservoir of cosmic mind-stuff stirred into vibration by the soul through concentrated attention, represented by the stream flowing from the pitcher in the right hand (projection) that feeds and sustains the pool. The stream blends into the pool of the subconscious where it’s turned into sensory experience and is then drawn back up into the pitcher in the left hand (magnetic) through 5 smaller streams (physical senses) that unite into one as they ascend, representing projection and contraction as a full cycle that flows infinitely, represented by the number 8. This represents the direct modification of the cosmic mindstuff (etheric substance) apart from sensory experience, which also modifies sensation and unfolds higher types of sensory experience.

The right knee is bent at the 90 degree angle of a square, positioned over the pool, and her foot rests on the surface of the water. While her left leg supports her on the ground, her right leg balances her by water. The sensations derived from physical forms are the main support for meditation (grounding) these are balanced by experiences gained directly from the subconscious. All sensory experience is formed out of the ideas that populate the subconscious as memory. The key to all material transmutation lies in utilizing the powers of the subconscious in conceiving new ideas and translating them into sensory realities through the imagination.

The Third Stage of Spiritual Unfoldment

This idea represents the 3rd stage of spiritual unfoldment as the “calm that follows the storm”, depicted by Key 16 as the destruction of ignorance that bind the soul to a prison of its own making, represented by Key 15 of the Devil. It’s the process of rebuilding on a foundation of Truth after the slate has been wiped clean. It sends us on a spiritual quest and search for a higher existence. While stars appear as dim lights when seen from the Earth, they’re actually distant suns whose light illuminates the cosmic soul. Stars are what “guide us” on our search to know ourselves through higher Truth. The angle of the stars in their constellations at the time of our birth charts our soul’s destiny through time.

The 5 rivulets as separate streams of consciousness that form into One represent the microcosm of the human soul and universal consciousness as it flows into and through the path of least resistance. Higher consciousness only flows through us when we vibrate at the same frequency and there’s no longer any resistance. This idea is expressed in the saying, “When we have found the beginning of the way, the star of our soul will shine its light to guide us”, and the Hermetic axiom, “as above so below, and as below so above, in the wondrous workings of the One Thing”.

When the veil of illusion falls away, what will provide the seed for a new reality built of Truth? What source do we draw on when we realize that the world we built out of society and what we were taught by others proves to be false? This symbolizes the idea of no longer taking in ideas from the will of others in the manifest world, and instead aligning your mind with your higher self and acting to draw down the Will of higher consciousness, using it to seed your subconscious in order to give birth to nobility as your souls chosen expression, and transform your outer experiences of life accordingly.

How to Know God and Ascend in Spirit to Higher Dimensions

In order to intelligently consider this idea we have to start by defining what we mean by “God”, because this idea is different for everyone. The word God is being used in this context to represent a higher power of universal consciousness as the laws and principles that govern the entire cosmos. God is not an entity or Deity, but the Universal Mind out of which all material phenomena is contained as a mental construct or holographic projection. As humans we have been bestowed with the same mind (conscious self-awareness) and have the ability to “know God” by becoming one with It in Mind. We only attain “knowledge of” something by becoming one with it in spirit and the same as it in mind and experiencing it from “within it as it”. We look out at the world through the same eyes and level of self-awareness. In this context “it” isn’t referring to an actual or single being, but the consciousness as a mental state that’s formed within as a direct and intimate experience of the same nature and kind that includes “all” of reality as a singularity or whole movement.

What we refer to as the spiritual world or realm is invisible to the physical senses and can only be known directly through thought and self-awareness. All thoughts are formed in the mind as an inner speech or voice that shapes an image of the thought in the imagination. All thoughts are formed as a product of or direct reflection of our state of mind or mood. Whatever state we exist in as a general rule determines what type of ideas we form a natural connection with and act as a host for bringing into expression as our internal representations that form a kind of symbolic template as a “theme” and metaphor for producing as an equivalent outer experience of reality. While we have a tendency to believe that the body gives rise to our mind and produces our thoughts, in reality, our body merely acts as a vessel or conduit for our mind to inhabit and use as the means of expressing and creating experiences of our “self” through.

Both our mind and higher human soul are not fixed ideas generated by a finite set of conditions as located within the space-time continuum, but are energetic formations that are constantly undergoing a process of evolution and transformation as acquiring and integrating different qualities and states of consciousness. The body and the personality of the body, often referred to as our lower, animal soul and subconscious, is merely the means through which the higher soul enters into a state of “separation with itself” as an “illusion produced by the mind” in order to create an “experience” of itself. All experience is created out of a state of duality as a projection of complementary opposites that act “on” each other to transform each other. We only acquire knowledge of ourselves through how we create our experiences. All “phenomenon” is created out of vibration which is the movement as a dance between the masculine (electric) and feminine (magnetic) aspects of the “same thing” that work together to produce the illusion of an “inner and outer” as being different and often unrelated. The foundation of vibration is movement, which can only occur through separation.

The mind is an aspect of the soul, and like the soul, exists on multiple levels simultaneously and is formed out of the same qualities and archetypal ideas that operate in a universal fashion as laws and principles. We have an individual mind, a family or group mind, race mind, cultural mind, and a cosmic or universal mind, all of which operate in harmony with each other based on a shared theme and type or level of consciousness that they all exist within. The mind is the “medium” through which we connect with the greater mind of humanity and the cosmos. Our physical body and our personality born out of the body, merely houses our mind and soul and acts as a “tuning mechanism” for “drawing in” consciousness from the atmosphere or astral plane of light that’s all around us. We not only tune ourselves to be a receiver and transducer through our thoughts and feelings, but also through expanding from an awareness of ourselves as being a body to being a part of a greater mind that encompasses the whole of reality in which we play a part.

In order to expand into the greater mind of humanity and the cosmos, we have to transcend our limited perception of ourselves as being a single personality, and realize that we’re also playing a role in a much larger dynamic where we’re a part of other people’s lives and serve to provide them with certain “types” of learning experiences as well. We have to expand our awareness beyond our sense of self that’s oriented to our body, which can only be done by purifying ourselves of negative emotions that keep us absorbed in playing out unconscious dramas that enhance and accentuate the feeling of separation. When we internalize everything to make it about us personally, we construct the walls of our own prison and condemn ourselves to a life of solitary confinement. It’s our emotions and passions that keep us locked into an unconscious state where we don’t realize we have the power to transcend them.

Emotions only exist as natural forces on the material plane where they keep us tied into a form of animal instinct where we use the creative power of our mind to produce whole realities as stories about ourselves and life that are fantasies. As long as emotions control our mind and how we think, determining what type of reality we create internally, we remain imprisoned by our own delusions. All emotional and psychological pain is self-administered when we stay shrouded in the cloak of our own ignorance as to our true, divine nature. As long as we continue to create an experience of our “self” as being our “body”, and therefore bound to the unconscious state of the body, we’re consumed with selfishness and remain nearsighted.

The only way we can truly “know” anything is by becoming “like” it. Like can only know what’s like itself. Like only has the power to produce more of what’s like itself. So in order to “know” God, we have to become “like” god. God only exists through mind and it’s only through our mind that we can become one with God. Not as an individual located within a single body and specific set of conditions and circumstances, but by expanding outside of ourselves to become a greater part of a conscious whole. We’re not only “having and experience” ourselves, but we’re also playing a significant role in a greater idea that provides a certain type of experience for others. We play a part in a greater pattern and are providing others with the means necessary for them to grow themselves in relationship with us. We play a part in our immediate family, community, society, and all of humanity. By expanding our awareness of ourselves as being a part of a greater whole, we can begin identifying with being a higher, universal being.

When we expand our mind and perception of our self to be of a more universal nature, we not only sense ourselves in a much more profound way, but we become conscious and aware of our part in the grand scheme of things. We begin relating and identifying with being a universal soul and take on the perspective and attitude of being of service to others and acting in a way that serves the highest benefit of everyone involved. We begin thinking of ourselves in a much more non-personal way. We begin putting thought into how it is we’re affecting and influencing others, aiding them in their growth somehow, or demonstrating a higher way of being, and it changes our perception of ourselves and gives us a renewed sense of purpose.

As long as we’re self-consumed and live out of dramas that self-administer our own pain and suffering by somehow making everything about us and taking things personal, we remain confined in the darkness of ignorance. As long as we grieve over the “bad hand” we feel we were dealt in life, or wallow in our own demise and self-pity, we remain a prisoner within the confines of our own mind. The very foundation of ignorance as an “error in self-awareness and realization” comes through selfishness and a reluctance to play our role harmoniously within a much greater idea that’s playing out. This is what it means to realize that you’re not your body living an insignificant life in a mundane situation, but are a universal being that has had many bodies, personalities, and different life experiences that served to shape you through your part in an ongoing cosmic story.

Creating the Experience of Becoming One with the Higher Mind of God

We can only attain knowledge through direct experience. In order to understand this idea, we have to bring it into practice as an experience. Here are a couple of methods you can use to begin learning how to look at your life differently and sense yourself in a much more expanded and powerful way.

Third Person Perspective: In any situation of your daily life, take a moment and instead of experiencing it within yourself looking out with all of your usual self-dialogue going on, imagine watching yourself from the distance and how you would appear to another person. Step outside of yourself and view the situation from a distant perspective where you don’t make anything that’s going on personal, but instead view it in as objective a manner possible. Imagine it as if it’s a movie where you’re not the main star or co-star, but simply playing one part of a bigger story. Dissociate from your body and personality and see yourself as just another person in a much larger situation, and watch how it changes your perspective on things and what your life seems to be about. Do this repeatedly throughout your day until you start getting good at it.

Meditation: The spiritual world of invisible consciousness can only be known through thought that’s felt inwardly. We can only know God by entering into the silence of our own mind. This means we have to quiet our own “thinking” as rambling thoughts formed through a chain of association that come in an automatic way. It’s our own internal dialogue fueled by habitual tendencies that create both a sense of separation from the whole, and our self as being our personality and conditioning. As we quiet our thoughts and become completely calm and fully relax our body (tension comes from thoughts that produce emotion in the body), our mind expands as an awareness that moves us outside of our body and into the space around us.

We begin expanding out into the space all around and sense ourselves as part of a greater whole. We sense ourselves as being a part of a greater mind and enter into the flow of universal consciousness all around us and we form a new, expanded sense of ourselves. We sense ourselves through a whole new way of being. We lose all sense of our self and become one with creation. We become all aspects that are playing complementary roles in a much bigger picture. We become pure presence, which strangely enough fills us with a feeling of bliss and euphoria. We realize that all of our pain and suffering results from the fact that we’re confined to a body. In this moment we know we’re actually a soul within a body and not limited to the body itself. We know this not as a theory that’s difficult to even grasp in practical terms, but from the direct and immediate experience of it as being it. It’s the “experience” that brings realizations that instantly transform you and your entire way of thinking and perceiving.

Conclusion

Through the experience of becoming one with the greater mind, attained only in meditation, introspection, and contemplation, a whole new series of realizations occur spontaneously. We learn truth from within the experience of it and so we never doubt it again. As we experience ourselves from within the silence of the greater mind that expands our awareness of our self, a whole new reality opens up that’s fresh and invigorating. We feel renewed and our purpose in life as a divine being becomes intimately clear and we fall in love with ourselves because we love how it feels to be who we really are. We realize that we’re not here to be consumed in constant personal dramas, but to play a significant and meaningful role in serving the whole of humanity in as fluid and harmonious way as possible. We step fully into ourselves as divine beings of a noble nature here to set humanity free by transcending the illusions of the emotional, animal subconscious that confines us to darkness by identifying with a specific animal body and point in time.

The Secret to the Subconscious and Willful Creation

One of the things that can make creating in a deliberate and willful manner confusing is that we’re always using one aspect of our mind to direct and command another aspect, both of which speak a different language and work by different means to create what we experience as a unified “reality”. All of what we can call “actual creation” as a manifestation is done by the subconscious while being directed by the conscious mind through our feelings and thoughts. We become what we think about because we’re literally programming ourselves and forming our perception of reality through our thoughts. The words we speak while imagining them as a reality or experience that invoke a strong emotion of some kind in response to them, is serving to give our subconscious a directive for creating as an outer experience.

Reality and the Illusion of Time

The mind itself with its varying aspects operates on different planes and scales simultaneously performing different functions of what results in a unified experience of reality. The subconscious exists “outside of time” (which is a dimension created by the conscious mind) and is always “present” in what we can think of as the “eternal now”. Our self-conscious mind (of outer awareness) exists within the time-space dimension of its own creation, and spends most of its time dwelling in the past or contemplating the future and is hardly ever present in the moment. The subconscious is “experiential” in nature, feeling oriented, and emotionally driven, and is what forms all of our natural perceptions and behaviors in a fully automatic and habitual manner. Our perception of the outer world is being produced by our subconscious while being witnessed and observed by our conscious mind. Our energetic “state” is what acts to unify both aspects into a coherent whole where together they call forth, organize into a thematic pattern, and produce our reality as a “direct experience” of it.

Learning to Speak the Language of the Soul

When we set a goal using our conscious mind, we tend to set it for the future while forming a realization around the fact that we don’t already have it. Because the desired reality is perceived as being in the future (time) somewhere and not already present, the subconscious doesn’t register it (it has no awareness of the future), and instead registers the feeling of “wanting it”. So wanting what we don’t have becomes the directive as a kind of “theme” for the subconscious to use in creating more realities and experiences of “wanting”. The subconscious functions to create reality as an outer manifestation of an inner reality formed out of feelings, ideas, and thoughts, and doesn’t need instructions on “how to” manifest something, but merely a metaphorical idea of “what” to create as a feeling state. All experience serves to give us more of the same feelings that acted to produce it.

For this reason all goals need to be formed in the imagination “as if” they’re real and from “within” the experience of it. Whatever emotion we associate to the desired situation or event tells the subconscious how to formulate it in order to create more of the same emotion through the nature of the experience produced. The goal has to be formed as an internal representation of a metaphorical idea imbued with strong feelings. We have to create it as a form of “virtual memory” (reality) that can take the place of an actual memory. The outer appearance as a certain type of reality merely cloaks the feeling that serves to birth and animate it allowing us to form a certain type of experience out of it. The reality itself isn’t what’s significant; it merely lays the foundation and sets the stage for how we form our experience of it. It can’t be thought of as something we’re “going” to work towards and hopefully create at some point in the future, because the reality of not having it “is” the directive being given to create more experiences of the same nature.

The Divine Paradox

The other thing we need to keep in mind is that the mind works in a completely holistic manner. It’s only the self-conscious mind that perceives duality and separation as our outer awareness of space and time. The subconscious is also a fundamental part of the group mind of the collective unconscious and what the self-conscious perceives as being “out there” is being produced by the subconscious on a larger scale without our direct awareness of it. Whereas the self-conscious mind perceives in “separate parts” that make up a whole that are often unrelated and independent of each other as a kind of “this or that” or “black and white” mentality (that believes in the illusion being created), the subconscious is holistic and produces reality out of our mental paradigm as our soul’s essence (memory as integrated experiences). It creates out of our entire psychology as the means of producing an experience of ourselves as a reality.

What this means is that it’s not only the goal itself as a reality that’s taken into consideration, but also the reason you have for setting the goal. What is it that’s “motivating” the goal? Our motives in doing whatever it is we’re doing directly influences and alter the outcome being produced. Many of our motives are emotional in nature and result from deep seated unresolved issues that we’re not fully aware of. These motivating forces play a role in shaping the outcome, and can come in a way that seems to contradict what we thought we were asking for.

A person who wants to manifest a relationship where they’ll “feel wanted and loved”, means they currently don’t feel that way, and again are projecting a wish for what they don’t have out of feelings of not being loved and wanted. All relationships attracted and actively engaged in will only act to produce “more feelings” of not being wanted because this is the state that gave rise to the desire for a relationship to fulfill that they currently lacked. If we feel unhappy, and we imagine it to be due to a lack of money, and we set a goal to make more money as the means of becoming happy, we may in fact produce the material wealth we desired and envisioned, only to have it accentuate and deepen the feeling of being unhappy. This is because it was designed out of feelings of being unhappy.

All manifestation is naturally produced in a fully unconscious way as our feelings that give rise to our thoughts that shape them into images and scenario’s that act to invoke an equivalent emotion, and together produce a reality as an experience. Whatever image we form in response to a feeling is the reality that expresses that feeling and acts to give us more of it. If we “ask” for something out of a feeling of lack, what we’re really saying to our subconscious is “give me more of this feeling”. All outer manifestations are produced as a reflection and equivalent of “inner manifestations” of feelings and thoughts because they’re both being produced by the same mind through our mental paradigm. The outer is a continuation of the inner on a larger scale.

Summary

We have to start all conscious manifestation by accessing the feeling inside of already having what it is we’re going to create. If we ask for something as a means of giving us a feeling we don’t already have, we simply create more of that feeling because it’s the feeling that acts as the directive telling the subconscious what to multiply and produce more of. All material reality is designed to give us more of the feeling that motivated and spawned its creation. While submerged in the feeling of “not having”, which is what gives rise to our request to acquire it, only acts to produce the reality as the experience of wanting.

Instead of focusing on what we lack and then trying to determine what type of reality will give us that, ask yourself what feeling is it that your desired manifestation will serve to give you. Then focus exclusively on that feeling, amplifying it, and allow the reality associated with it to naturally form of its own volition in your imagination. Let go of all need to determine what the reality is, and let it form as the expression of the feeling. As the image or reality rises naturally out of the feeling, don’t try to change or correct it to what you think it should be, but let it form spontaneously, while maintaining your attention on the feeling. All material images and actual realities serve only as a metaphor for the subconscious, which creates through the Law of Analogy and Correspondences. Allow yourself to realize intuitively that the “feeling” is the creative directive that the subconscious will use as the means of producing the reality that will be “of” that feeling and serve to give you more of it . . .

Meditation, Self-Realization, and Transcending the Illusion of Reality

While many people approach the idea of meditation as a method of some kind that’s designed to produce a predictable effect, and believe there are only certain ways to “truly meditate”, the fact may be that it’s a process through which we train our mind to step outside of our lower, conditioned nature and connect intimately with our higher Self. In our Western society, which has a tendency to focus almost exclusively on our physical nature, meditation is often seen as a means of calming the mind and inducing deepened states of relaxation, which is the beginning stage of most meditative processes.

Some people even go so far as to argue about what’s meditation and what’s not, indicating that there’s a right way of doing it and a wrong way. Yet meditation, like any spiritual practice, which means it involves how you use your own mind to achieve altered states of consciousness, is something that’s done in a unique way by everyone doing it. There are no rules of right and wrong ways, simply guidelines that provide us with a starting point as a means of producing the foundation out of which a natural process arises and becomes active beyond our ability or desire to control it. If you’re held to the idea of a right and wrong way, and go about it by obeying rules laid down for you by others, then it simply becomes a relaxation technique or produces whatever the structured process is designed to produce.

Meditation as a Spiritual Practice

Meditation as a spiritual practice provides us with a means of calming and subduing our habitual thoughts and impulses, while forming a place of inner peace and silence that ultimately connects us with our Higher Self. It also provides us with a process for being able to step outside of and detach from the conditioned “content” of our mind and view it instead from an objective and unemotional perspective. As we detach from our own thoughts and story about things and view them instead from a perspective of “witnessing” them, we begin realizing the “process” involved that acts to give rise to our thoughts. We can watch the impulses as they rise up, form into a whole synchronized series of interrelated thoughts that peak and express momentarily, then subside, die down, and fade away, while another impulse rises in its place.

By quieting the mind of outer awareness and habitual thoughts, we become present with our inner awareness. Our focal point becomes our own feelings and allowing our thoughts to freely flow by without grabbing onto them or penetrating them and going into a detailed story or narrative of some kind. As we simply sit on the shore and content ourselves with watching our thoughts flow by we can begin realizing that it’s merely the “content” of our mind produced by our conditioning, and we become aware instead of the process involved in “producing our thoughts” as our perception of reality, which is a form of delusion that we’ve mistaken for being “who we are”. By observing the content of our mind we can begin realizing that we’re not the story itself, but rather the mind that’s producing and acting to give rise to the story “about” our self. We’re the author and storyteller, and not the story itself. Our soul is our mind as the medium through which the story plays out as a reality.

Once we gain realization around how it is that we’re acting to “create our self” through the reality we create through the perspective of our conditioning and personality, we can begin questioning our own motives, and gaining even deeper realizations about the nature of our unconscious mind and how it acts to produce our perception of reality. As we move into the emotions that drive our thoughts and actions, while maintaining an awareness that’s detached from the need to somehow justify and validate our reality as being true, the illusion of it becomes more and more apparent, and our identification with our body and personality begins slowly fading away. We can gain an awareness of our “self” as the medium through which our thoughts take place, rather than being the thoughts themselves.

As we continue to become aware of the process our mind undergoes as a means of creating our perception of reality, we begin stepping into our true identity as the mind and soul that’s creating it as a mental projection. This awareness as a new and higher form of self-realization liberates us from the delusion of our conditioning and we no longer have a need to continue creating it. As our conditioned mind begins dissolving and fading away, we begin sensing our “self” and reality as it really is, apart from our story. We see with great clarity that we were creating our self out of a false identity through an unconscious state where we didn’t realize in the direct sense who we really are, what we were doing, and how it is that we were doing it.

As we gain a deeper awareness of our self as our higher consciousness, we shed the identity of our conditioning, neutralizing and purifying our body, and it becomes the temple as a vehicle for our higher self to create from a fully conscious state of “actual” self-awareness. We come fully into the realization that the material reality is not who we are, but something we create by formulating it inwardly as imagined thoughts that are then projected outwardly. All needs and desires for material possessions and status that used to provide us with the means for defining ourselves and feeling secure in our false identity begins to disappear. As we realize that we’re not “of this world” or dimension, and begin consciously residing in a higher awareness, we assume a natural position of serving others. Our karma that was incurred through unconscious conditioning resolves and we no longer continue to live and create out of it. Liberation comes as a “mental state of being”, not a physical one. The mental is what lays the foundation for the physical to naturally emerge out of.

Seeded Meditation

Another method of meditation comes by entering into an altered state of passivity, while setting an intention to acquire information about something as an answer to a question or problem. By fully relaxing our mind and body, calming all habitual thoughts while relinquishing the need to try and control or come up with the answer from our conditioned mind of personal memory, and impressing the question on the empty space within and around us, then letting go and residing patiently in silence, we connect with higher consciousness and act as a passive “receiver” for information that provides us with the answer to our inquiry. Questions and answers, like higher and lower planes of the same reality, exist in polarity to each other. They’re complementary aspects of the same idea as a holographic pattern.

By focusing our attention in a single minded fashion on the question, free from distractions, we tune ourselves energetically (spiritually) to the answer, and serve as a passive receiver for the answer to come “through us”. As long as we’re actively trying to “figure out the answers”, we exist in an active state and can’t receive an answer that’s not a part of the previous experiences of our conditioning. The “active aspect” (masculine) of the mind can’t communicate (seed) with another active aspect, it has to have a passive mind (feminine) that can “conceive it” and where it can “rise up” within the imagination of the passive mind (unconscious) and reveal itself (begin unfolding) as a thought-form.

The subconscious is the receptive aspect of the lower material mind and serves to “draw in” and gives life to the active aspect of either the higher mind, or lower self-conscious mind of outer awareness on the same lower plane of the subconscious. By silencing the active material mind of conditioned thought, we render ourselves passive and receptive, and become a fluent receiver for higher consciousness to “seed and impregnate us” with an idea that will serve as an answer to our question or solve a problem. If we begin to use our conditioned mind to evaluate and alter the answer through our beliefs and emotional filters, then we stay stuck in the reality of the problem. This is what Einstein was referring to when he said “a problem can’t be solved with the same mind that created it”, and why all great thinkers and inventors get their ideas as a form of “vision” that comes to them out of the blue bringing new awareness and realizations.

Goal of Meditation

While many “use” meditation to achieve certain states or as a means of relaxing, once you get into a regular practice and begin connecting with your higher consciousness within the silence of your material mind, it produces a feeling of euphoria and you begin “falling in love” with your higher self. You form a deep desire for the connection and begin identifying with it as a normal way of being. Once the illusion of our conditioned state begins falling away along with the identity we formed through it, and we begin “looking through the eyes of higher consciousness”, we begin training ourselves to maintain a passive mind as a normal way of being in order to stay connected with our higher awareness. We become fully “present” in our everyday life while maintaining a sense of inner peace. Meditation becomes our normal way of being and we train our body to be the vehicle and instrument for higher consciousness to inhabit, be, and express through.

When this happens you give up the need to be right, you no longer argue to prove your point, all pain and suffering born out of the illusion and lack of forgiveness fade, you lose your desire for material gratification and status, and you begin seeking solace in the silence and natural beauty of things. You begin tuning into the miraculous nature of life, and feel compassion for all other living beings. Every act becomes an expression of kindness because you’re no longer invested in the illusion and need to judge others who are still consumed with the illusion of their own making. Once we no longer get our identity from our conditioning, we liberate ourselves from our own story and tendency to delude ourselves. We realize with extreme clarity that we are “in this world, but not of it”, and that “of ourselves we’re nothing”. All true power comes from our higher self. We’re not the product of our own story; we’re the creator of it. Our story of reality takes place both “within us” and “outside of us” through the medium of our mind as a projection through the time-space continuum.

Developing Clairvoyance – “Seeing the Spiritual World”

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

Astral Plane and the World of Formation Our mind as our feelings and thoughts are a natural part of the spiritual plane of natural forces that acts naturally to organize “light essence” into living forms in the faculty of the imagination. Our thoughts are also the way we naturally enter into relationship with these animated light forms and act, usually without knowing it, to influence them to different degrees, causing them to morph and fluctuate into unique variations of themselves. Our own thoughts that are heavily concentrated on for prolonged periods of time with strong feelings and emotions connected to them produce “thought-forms” within this plane that can linger for quite some time before eventually dissolving. The etheric body of the human spirit is also created within this plane, and is what’s used to create the lower soul of the material body as its blueprint for formation and regeneration, also called its double or twin, and though its mortal and dies with the body, also lingers for a period of time as the soul’s apparition before disintegrating. This plane of “light form” is traditionally called the Astral Plane in Esoteric Sciences, the World of Formation in Kabbalistic Philosophy, and has a broad range as higher (barely formed and still fluctuating) and lower (well-formed and stationary) regions within it as a “range of expression” that moves an idea from pure essence (unformed) as a universal archetype (thematic idea) to a well-formed idea as a personalization of that idea. The traditional “four elements” of the material world are what provides the primordial substance of the Astral Plane which is shaped by the mind into living forms that underlie and provide the basis for the material world as a dynamic living matrix of evolving forms.  All forms within this plane that characteristically change with our every thought or feeling, are all formed by the mineral elements and are made by humans as a “thought-form”. Those formed by the plant element change less readily in response to our thoughts and feelings, and those of animals, which have a personality of their own, change even less so.

Though the astral-etheric world is invisible, it acts to impress the mind (which is of the same plane) with distinct mental impressions that form subtle realities in the imagination. The imagination is the faculty of the mind that receives knowledge of the spirit through the astral plane of imaginary form. These mental impressions, while never solid or opaque like the forms of the physical plane, can still be quite distinct as a “feeling about something” that forms a series of mental impressions as a chain of association that connect a series of ideas through their “inner nature” and the qualities they share in common. While many of us believe the spiritual world exists as a symbolic representation of the physical, it’s actually the opposite way around.  The material plane is actually comprised of symbolic representations of concentrated energy that are formed out of the universal archetypes of the spiritual plane. These astral forms remain in a constant state of evolutionary flow as transformation taking place based on energetic influences from all levels of consciousness surrounding and interacting with it, most of which exists on the same plane as human thoughts, feelings, and emotions. These forms have a luster and iridescent quality that’s consistently shifting and fluctuating through sympathetic resonance and the acquisition and assimilation of similar frequencies in near proximity of it. They shift and reform slightly based on how they’re being influenced or directly interacted with, which is mostly being done unconsciously through our own thoughts and feelings in direct or indirect response to them. These energetic forms are the active primal intelligence’s of the subconscious mind that forms the Collective Unconscious of the instinctual field of Nature and are full of life and movement. Their mobility is largely due to the influence of our own thoughts and feelings, and to other causes that are beyond our control. Some of these forms are independent of the human mind and exist outside of our ability to influence them, and as a result, they act to influence us instead. Others are always interacting with us energetically as feelings and thoughts that form “in us” as a natural response to the feeling sensations we’re always acting as a receiver for that produce most of our subconscious activity. Because they operate in us at an unconscious level, we often have no direct awareness of the influence our thoughts and feelings are having on others and the world around us.

Archetypes and Thought-Forms While all natural living and non-living objects have energy fields which are impressed with the shapes of the qualities it possesses that forms its characteristics as a form of organic patterning that are produced as a natural emanation, there are many “thought-forms” that have been created and maintained for extended periods of time by people’s emotions, instincts, passions, and so on. These man-made thought-forms are similar to archetypes as universal memory that fluently populates the astral plane and can be “tuned into” and absorbed by the individual mind where they appear in the mind’s eye much like a normal memory or inspired idea does. Through meditative observation we can realize that while our thoughts and feelings bear an influence on these man-made thought-forms, it’s only slight, unless we’re directly interacting with them. We only have a negligible effect at best on most other forms, depending on what it is that causing them. Sensing Energy When we learn how to reverse our normal thinking in terms of the spiritual world being symbolic of the material, and instead realize that all material form exists as the symbolic forms of the spiritual-energetic realm, we can realize that many behavioral characteristics of people are seen as an animalistic quality in the spiritual essence of their presence. So when energy is “sensed” it takes on or is perceived as the natural qualities themselves as they would exist in the natural world. They appear as animal-like, or as bearing the sensations of evil, grotesque, demonic, scheming, envious, lashing out, bitter, sulking, scared, dominating and aggressive, or as angelic like, soft, patient, calm, centered, reserved, protective, flowing, loving, and so on. The quality of the energy takes on whatever physical characteristics correspond to it. While animals always bear the energy of their species as a form of instinct, and remain somewhat consistent, humans possess many different qualities that make up their persona, and their energy is sensed as analogous forms to the natural world, and because of this, may completely contradict their physical appearance. Emotions can be thought of as natural forces or actual entities (demons) that have a singular nature and express by creating realities that are of the same emotional nature. As we act to “receive an emotion” from outside of us through a form of transmission, it initiates a chain of association that determines what we focus on, remember and access as a past memory of the same emotion, what we think about and form into an internal representation, and how we behave and act as an automated pattern. This imagined reality creates a “thought-form” on the astral-etheric plane made up of light essence, which is what we shape in our imagination as a self-produced expression of that energy as an actual reality. The energy itself as an emotion exists in its universal form as containing endless potential for expression, that when drawn into a specific person, undergoes a whole series of modification that adapt it to the individual, and based on how it enters into relationship with the personal reality, forms into one potential and expresses “through us” by forming a corresponding reality of the same nature. The reality created through our reaction as an expression of it, amplifies and multiplies it, and we then draw more of the same emotion back into us as a memory of it.

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

Attributes, Qualities, and Characteristics The spiritual world is not an ethereal, hazy or an illusory replication of the physical world, but reveals itself instead as forms that are quite different. Qualities that permeate and surround a physical form are seen as the images that are associated to the qualities that form possesses and actively expresses. The attributes of the forms “match” the quality of consciousness as shapes, behaviors or processes that are being expressed through or by a physical body or entity. This is the basis for why the spiritual realm is “seen” or portrayed as “animal powers” and plants, is because certain qualities that produce specific behaviors in what we could think of as the instinctual field of the collective unconscious, which governs all of life on the planet earth, expresses through different species of animals as the form that’s associated with those behaviors as a “classification of the consciousness” that governs and produces them. So, for example, another human who embodies and demonstrates certain behaviors are “sensed” as their animal quality. An aggressive or deceptive  person might be seen as having lion or panther-like qualities; someone who constantly complains might be seen as a dog barking or whining; a docile and meek person like a lamb or sheep. In a similar way, negative emotions being embodied and expressed are seen as attributes of that emotion; anger is perceived as jagged, sharp, chaotic, loud and aggressive energy that expands and clashes or shocks; whereas sadness is sensed as dull, vague, dark, tired energy that pulls within and almost disappears; loving emotions are very warm, buzzy and sensuous, gratifying and intoxicating, relaxing, and are attractive. When these feelings are experienced, mental impressions often rise up as thoughts of a corresponding nature, and we have a kind of translucent vision as transparent imagery, or energetic composite that forms in our imagination that’s very different in the normal sense from the actual outer “appearance” of the person expressing the energy as emotional states. Their energetic form can be a combination of animal, plant, and mineral features that are also imbued with geometric designs that hold them together, and can be either comprised of neutral colors of mostly greys, or of vivid prismatic colors that are pure and intense.

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

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

The Cosmic Mirror of the Imagination When we refrain from the need to interpret our experiences, and we simply observe them with a neutral and unbiased mind, they form the same type of mental impressions as a personal memory does as scenarios or moving images that form mental impressions in our imagination. The primary difference is these mental impressions lack “meaning” (in the personal sense), and exist purely by reasons that are independent of us. The spiritual realm is perceived in much the same way as a form of invisible reality viewed in the mind, though not actually seen with the physical senses, that’s alive “within” the present situation, rather than being a form of personal memory resurrected from the past and reused to create the present as an illusion. The mental impressions formed intuitively in the mind in response to feelings and the sensations they give rise to, is how we “perceive” (see) the spiritual within the physical. Not as a mirror image that duplicates it, but as an image that resembles the reflection seen on glass or a dark shiny surface. Yet the images themselves seldom ever resemble the physical body they inhabit and act to animate, but rather the nature of the consciousness and behaviors being demonstrated as their “inner nature”. The images are symbolic in nature as a form of metaphor, rather than literal. The idea of a mirror image is referring more to the nature and quality of the mental impressions themselves, rather than the actual image, which in spiritual terms is quite different.

Feelings, State, and the Nature of Vibration In the reverse sense, as we are stimulated by a feeling (vibration) it naturally forms a very distinct mental image as a “reality” (pattern) that expresses the feeling as a physical form. Vibration organizes astral light as “essence” into material forms through a self-organizing mechanism in the faculty of the imagination as our higher, spiritual senses. While many of us have been taught that the spiritual exists as symbolic of the material, in reality, the exact opposite is true. The spiritual, which is pure energy in its potential state, is what precedes and “organizes” the material form as being of the same “nature” (internal consciousness that emanates a pattern).  We have to reverse our way of thinking about things. The spiritual is the “feeling state” (vibration) that acts to produce and give rise to a correlating physical reality as animated imagery that forms composite images, scenarios, or live-events that are the processes inherent in the feeling as spiritual law. The living patterns of vibration create processes as structure and function. They shape astral light (starlight) into forms with distinct behaviors that express the principles governing them. These astral shapes are formed as variations of the same idea (archetype) based on the adaptation they undergo through the relationship they form with all other factors involved in the situation or circumstances that act to modify it to some degree as a kind of reformulation of the same fundamental properties, changing what’s emphasized and enhanced, yet, forming out of the same fundamental properties as a formulae or dynamic patterning.

Thematic Patterns and Symbolic Correspondences When we move from thinking that the physical world is the basis that gives rise to the spiritual, which seems symbolic in comparison, and fully realize instead that it’s the spiritual as vibration that exists in its potential state as a “thematic pattern” that gives rise to the physical as a symbolic correspondence, then we can begin to understand the spiritual world through feelings that when held in a calm and open mind form into natural imagery that’s in a constant state of movement as fluctuating qualities that transform through a state of “becoming” while maintaining the same thematic form as an archetypal idea. For example, if we hold the archetypal idea of a lamp in our mind, and we’re simply present with that idea, we may form impressions of all sorts of different types of lamps, yet they’re all still a “lamp” and they all represent the same type of idea.  As we hold an idea in our mind, a form of free-association as a chain of associated ideas naturally unfolds in our imagination as correlating and corresponding ideas of the same nature. An archetype can be thought of as a kind of universal (non-personal) idea as a pattern, living template or prototype that forms a mental impression as a specific “type of form” in the imagination of the individual, which uses it just like a personal memory to create experiences in their life that are of the same idea, modified by how its embodied and applied, not only through the consciousness of the individual, but to their exact set of circumstances and conditions. We “conceive of” an idea whole and intact as a form of insight, that we then personalize by how we think about it, what emotions we associate to it, what scenarios we apply it to in order to create it, and we reform it into a personalize version. The idea conceived as an insight or inspiration is “pictured in the mind” in much the same way as a memory is. It appears like a reflection on glass as a see-through or translucent image. The imagery is the translation as an interpretation from pure feeling to a full-fledged physical reality as a mental construct or internal representation. We modify the original idea by how we apply it to our current life situation that presents it to us in a new way as a modified format or configuration. The basic idea being used as a theme for creating is modified through the process of adaptation that serves to reform it.

The feeling that we get that are present in any moment as an emanation of the energies involved, when we create an open space in our mind for the feeling to take hold within us and rise up in our mind as a living scenario or animated form within our imagination, reveals to us the nature of the energies as the forms their vibration naturally creates. These symbolic forms are the expression of the “qualities of consciousness” acting to birth them as realities on the astral plane of mental formation. All vibration has a pattern inherent in it as a theme along with a self-organizing mechanism that shapes essence into forms in the faculty of the imagination in a spontaneous and involuntary manner. The imagination is the faculty of the mind that shapes astral light (plasma) as infused essence (electrified) into forms as the expression of the vibratory frequency it’s programmed with. The vibration as movement (life-force) organizes and structures light – the astral remnant of movement between two poles that form dimension – and a matrix of tension (electromagnetic field) that hold everything into fluctuating, shimmering, lustrous patterns. These patterns as shapes translate into living realities of the physical plane. The physical plane is produced, maintained, and governed by spiritual laws, which are the energetic intelligence’s as information that form and express as properties that naturally undergo certain types of processes and form natural behaviors based on the chemical properties of their form and the level of consciousness equated to it.

The Field of Potential and the Particle of Existence The spiritual world and the physical world are extreme aspects of the same plane comprised of multiple dimensions where pure consciousness as a wave-form containing billions of potential is drawn down through the planes and into physical reality as the expression of the information inherent in the wave-form. As it’s drawn down into an individual mind, the wave-form collapses around “one” potential as a possibility that’s used to form a single personalized reality. That reality then forms into a personal memory through the unique expression of it, and is then drawn back up the astral planes where it’s returned to its universal state as an archetype or pattern or generalized idea. This general idea as a kind of theme and basic form can then be used to create more experiences through using the memory as a general idea or template for creating more experiences of the same nature. All reality as an “experience” is shaped by the meaning it has for the individual receiving and interpreting it that evolves it through a series of modifications by how it’s adapted to fit a new set of conditions or a unique set of circumstances. This memory (whether universal or personal – because one is used to create the other) when used repeatedly to perceive reality, creates a field of energy (consciousness) as an electromagnetic field that habituates it into a fixed pattern. Once it becomes a habitual thought process it acts as a theme for creating our life story by solidifying it as a thought-form (memory that’s used to create more memories of the same nature). This idea, once concentrated on by replaying it over and over in the imagination as a way of interpreting other ideas to mean the same thing, is cast into the astral light of mass consciousness as a fixed form, where it becomes a form of substitute for an original thematic idea as an universal archetype, and can be tuned into, accessed, and received by other minds who are of the same nature (frequency), who then also use it to create in a similar fashion as a basic life theme. In this way, archetypes are not only evolved constantly by how they’re applied and modified, but birth new archetypes through the same method as a form of genetic (information) modification (re-configuration).

The world of thought-forms as a form of collection or accumulation of archetypes evolved by humans through various applications and personalization, is also what we refer to a mass consciousness or the “instinctual field” of the collective unconscious that produce natural behaviors that are conceived of unconsciously. This unified field of imprinted information is also referred to as the “Book of Life” or “Hall of Records” where every action (as a new vibration) is “recorded” (impressed) in the Akashic Field. These terms are all referring to the same idea, and is also the basis for the modern scientific discovery of morphogenic and torsion fields that act to populate the field of human instinct with subtle energy as the ghost-like, invisible energy that’s constantly being transmitted and received by like-minds, and serves to produce distinct physical properties as qualities and characteristics that produce behaviors as the expression of those characteristics. Unconscious ideas are natural thought processes that form basic behaviors that are thematic in nature and natural to us. These are ideas that we didn’t acquire through awareness or intentionally as a deliberate act, but that “came to us” without our direct awareness (naturally). These thought-forms are imprinted within the soul-field or astral plane that we tune into and draw into us as natural and automatic thoughts that we begin expressing by creating experiences as internal representations that form the basis for creating our personal memories out of. These universal ideas that populate our internal awareness become themes that govern our whole life because we continue to use memories of the past to create more of the same type of experiences in the present, usually without ever realizing that that’s what we’re doing.

Accurate and Objective Perception One of the most basic mistakes we make in forming intuitive perceptions comes when we feel the need to interpret what we’re sensing by making it “mean something”. As soon as we start telling ourselves a story about what things mean, we move it from a neutral and universal status into a “personal creation”. The active component of our mind as the “story-teller” is always interacting with energy to reform it and change how it appears. As we think about something we change how it appears to us. We start making it about us instead of about the person, object, or situation that it’s a part of as their (its) internal nature. This is how we are always acting to “shape others to be like us”. Things only mean what we say they mean. What something means to us may be very different than what it means to the person demonstrating or emanating it. So in order to accurately perceive intuitively we have to resist the natural tendency to want to interpret it to make it mean something. The most natural way to form a truly neutral observation of something is to form a detached perspective, where you dissociate from it and take on a passive form of observation called “witnessing”. The mind has the natural ability to influence and shape energy, and when in an active state of interpretation, it changes how things appear, distorting and corrupting it to fit its own needs and beliefs about it. In order to “receive information in its original and true form” we have to subdue the active component of our “thinking and storytelling mind”, and enter into a passive state where we observe it without any need to change it. We have to relinquish any needs, desires, or judgments we have regarding it. As we create and maintain a calm sense of inner peace and detach from everything around us while taking on a perspective of simply observing it from a neutral state, we can begin seeing things as they truly are apart from us. As we take a position of simply witnessing something without needing to make it mean something, we begin seeing others and the world around us with new eyes. The witnessing faculty of the mind that simply observes things from a neutral state is the same faculty we use in order to act as a “receiver” for higher knowledge that comes to us only through meditative states where we simply act to absorb an idea and allow it to unfold within us without the need to “act on it” (interact with it) to change it in any way. This is the basis for the idea of being a “purified vessel” that’s necessary in order to conceive of higher knowledge without corrupting it to personal means.

Intuition, the 3rd Eye, and the Pineal Gland – How we Receive Communication from Higher Planes of Existence

What we refer to as intuition comes to us in two basic ways and from two different planes. The most basic way comes from the material plane as a form of telepathic, horizontal transmission through the heart center that we experience as feelings and emotions that produce a realization of some kind as a form of “knowing” (that doesn’t come from cognition of some form), and as a vertical transmission of information from a higher plane through the third-eye, which is the subtle organ that corresponds to the Pineal Gland seated in the center of the brain. Transmission from a higher source comes as an inner voice (commanded by a higher authority) that’s translated into an imagined reality as a thought-form or mental impression, that’s always “original” in nature. Meaning it’s not self-generated out of an existing memory of some sort, but comes as a deeper realization into things that we didn’t know or wasn’t aware of before. Information as ideas from a higher plane comes to us from “outside of” our mental paradigm as a form of inspiration or sudden realization.

Intuition of the material plane is the same universal force that drives instinct, and is what gives animals their “6th sense” (6 associated to the 6th chakra of the 3rd- eye) and is what allows them to be aware of things that are invisible to the physical senses, and can only be “sensed” as an inner feeling that stimulates emotions, which produce automatic and natural behaviors without a thought process. Whereas intuition from a higher plane comes as a form of thought and mental impression that plants an idea in the imagination where it’s transformed into a living reality and provides us with new insights and means for inventing and creating material reality in a new and original way. You can easily recognize this form of intuition because it’s not an idea that you produced out of existing memories, or as a variation of something you already knew, but rather as showing you something that you weren’t aware of or able to see from your normal perspective. It comes as ideas that exist just outside of your mental paradigm that serve to expand and increase your awareness around an idea.

       Intuition from a higher source comes as an idea that enters your mind spontaneously (while in a receptive state), usually in response to a desire, question, or intention of some kind, and like a seed that’s planted in fertile ground, it begins growing as a harmonious and synchronistic unfolding that “reveals itself” to you while you simply observe it from a passive state. It forms a natural chain-of-association that connects a series of ideas by how they relate to each other. It forms mental impressions that reveal the true significance of things at a deeper level, that even when you can’t connect them to other ideas in your life in a logical and direct manner, you know there’s a reason they’re being shown to you. As you go through your day, it keeps popping into your mind by how it relates to other ordinary ideas that you encounter throughout the day.

Once it enters your mind as an imaginary experience, it doesn’t go away and only continues to grow and evolve, showing you deeper and deeper aspects of its significance, and you start noticing how it’s related or acting to guide you in other areas of your life. Sometimes it comes as distinct guidance, and at other times as simply showing you things that increase your self-awareness so you can make new decisions as a form of self-guidance. It’s always teaching you a new way perceiving that brings a whole new reality into play that has a kind of “magical quality” to it. It acts like a secret idea that’s been hidden within the ordinary reality around you that you never saw before. Yet once you’re able to “see it”, you immediately notice it in any situation in which it occurs or relates to.

These ideas as mental impressions continue to multiply and grow because you start getting notions about things, or you start noticing other ideas that are related to it that stand out or spontaneously come to mind. All transmissions come by way of an “accumulative effect” that begins growing an idea as a series of realizations that develops it through a continuous process of adaptation and modification in deeper and more significant ways. Certain ideas are “magnetic” in nature (alive) and when they come into your mind have an “attractive field” (electromagnetic field) that draws you deeper and deeper into them, while connecting you to the same idea in your environment. This is similar to the choreographer who carefully orchestrates how the bigger story (pattern) of your life unfolds and comes into being out of nowhere. The creative process for how an idea becomes the basis for experiencing reality.

Example:

Several years back I became imprinted with the number “44”, which began through a simple conversation with a friend in regards to the significance of numbers that stand out to us in our environment. Once I was imprinted with the idea of 44 and 8, it began showing up in every area of my life where numbers were involved. While hiking one day, it began raining and I sought shelter under a rock outcropping while gazing at a beautiful mountain scene, smelling the fragrant air and the intoxicating energy that I was submerged in, a powerful feeling came over me and I saw myself in a mountain cabin, serene and peaceful, dedicating my time to writing, painting, and transforming my life situation. This came as a deep feeling of sensing myself fully within the experience of it, and I realized it was exactly what I really wanted to do, though I had no idea how I was going to do it, because the means wasn’t apparent at that time. But from that moment on it became a form of goal as an intention for creating that I continued to imagine as an experience.

I was getting ready to move out of my existing home, in which I was friends with my landlord, and casually expressed wanting to find a place in the mountains to live. He then commented on the fact that they owned a “vacation cabin” in an area of the mountains that was very secluded, approximately 50 to 60 miles away that sat on a small lake. I asked him for the address, but he didn’t know it off hand, and said he’d get back with me on it. So I decided to drive up to the area and look around to see if I liked it, with the thought that I might be able to figure out which cabin it was. As I got to the small town that it was just outside of, I stopped at the small gas station to get a map of the area and find the back roads that had lakes, which they all did, as the area was populated with several lakes and all the roads were dirt roads.

I randomly picked one to start with because it stood out in my mind, and as I drove down it I came up over a hill where there was a small lake, and saw a moose standing at the edge of the water. As I stopped to look at the moose, I saw several small cabins around the lake, one of which was directly behind the moose. So I decided to drive around the lake and look at the different cabins. As I drove along, I looked for addresses, which were difficult to find, and as I came up on the cabin that was directly behind the moose, I saw the address was “44”. With this realization a deep sense of excitement came over me and I knew at that moment that it was the cabin I was going to live in. And of course it turned out to be the cabin my landlord owned and rented to me the next day.

We’re Guided through our Life Dreams

Our dreams and life purpose come to us in much the same way. We have mental impressions as imaginary ideas born out of a strong feeling that’s magnetic in nature and always acting to draw us deeper and deeper into them. We feel a deep connection to and for certain ideas and we’re always imagining ourselves doing them as a form of daydreaming. Even when we can’t really see what they’re guiding us into, we are definitely aware that they serve as a form of navigation system for creating our life experiences. If we try to ignore them or give them up in favor of a different path, they never really die or go away, but continue instead to live inside of us. They remain alive in us as a deep and relentless longing for them, and we often “miss them” like a long lost lover whose memory aches in our bones. This is how destiny calls our name while biding time awaiting for our return.

These mental impressions are significant to us because they produce a strong emotional response in us that’s very compelling and attractive. They usually fill us with a sense of wonder, awe, and fascination. They act to invoke deep feelings of love in us and a strong desire for them. This is the experience of connecting with our self in the outer world, or as an idea that we naturally participate in and create our life experiences out of as a result. They entice us with a form of benevolent seduction because we awaken and become more alive in response to them. These ideas live in our heart and are grown with our mind, like seeds deep in the earth, laced with memories that seem distant, yet eerily familiar, stimulated by the warmth of the sun causing us to rise up to it with an innocent eagerness and playful enthusiasm. A seed, that once it sprouts, grows in us until it consumes us and we “become” by way of the experiences it brings. It’s the means through which we “become one with it” and create ourselves through the identity and path it provides as a clear purpose and direction for our life.

How we Receive Communication as Ideas from a Higher Plane

The Pineal gland is the only single-shaped endocrine gland that corresponds with the subtle organ of the “third-eye”, and represents a “single vision” for our life as connected to our Divine source, in what has been called “God’s Will” for our life. When God’s Will as the will of our Higher Self, becomes our choice for our life’s path, a kind of “quickening” takes place in the sense that things manifest in a synchronistic fashion in a much shorter period of time. When we resist it, fear it, doubt it, or need guarantees in order to commit to following it, it torments us. It becomes the basis of our inner turmoil and robs us of our inner peace and deep sense of purpose, which is the true foundation to freedom and happiness.

God, as our Higher Self is always talking to us through a form of hypnotic suggestion as implanted mental impressions and ideas that are coupled with a natural love for them that makes them seem very compelling. They come through our subconscious mind in an automatic and immediate fashion and stand out as significant because of the emotions they invoke in us in response to them. It’s not guilt, fear, or intimidation, nor is it presented as what you “should do”, but comes as a knowing, a familiarity, and a natural love that seems to answer the question as a longing that lives inside of us, always beckoning us on, silently whispering our name, showing us where to go, and what to connect with in order to get there.

It doesn’t come through an outward source, although signs and messages that relate to it and seem to remind us of it do, but comes instead from an inside source. It comes as an idea that you recognize as being your true self, that’s a part of your true nature and what you’re perfectly designed to do. It comes through what you have a natural inclination towards. There are no agenda’s or expectations attached to it, just a gentleness that’s also firm and never wavers. It doesn’t speak to you not in another person’s voice, but silently in your own mind as your voice commanded by a higher and more divine source. It’s like a parent urging you on, or a lover extending their hand to you and gently leading you onto the dance floor where you flow together in a single motion. It’s an intimate and loving connection that you feel at one with. It’s a relationship with the Higher Aspect of yourself who always has your best interest in mind and only acts to teach you by increasing your awareness around things, allowing you to make better and more beneficial decisions for your life.

       The Pineal is our physical antenna, transmitter and receiver from higher worlds of pure vibration. The transmission of information from higher planes comes as the potential for creating the realities of life, and is represented by mental imagery that’s coupled with a strong feeling sensation that acts to invoke a strong emotion in response to it. The mind as the “subtle body” operates the physical body through the Endocrine System through a form of “stimulus- response”, or cause and effect.  The Pineal gland regulates “state” and produces a chain reaction with all the other Endocrine glands to produce and regulate the chemistry of the body to match the state of the mind.  Our state-of-mind is produced by whatever mental imagery we focus on and think about as an imaginary reality. All ideas from the Higher Plane come as archetypes (thematic ideas) with the inherent properties of sound and visual form and are translated into a plausible reality in the imagination of the individual acting to receive them.

The mental impression that’s formed becomes the pattern for creating a certain type of reality, and the emotion invoked in response to it is what connects us to that same idea in our external environment, and acts to attract it while simultaneously reorganizing the field of information around us to be of the same nature. We are connected to everyone and everything around us through emotions, which are connected to certain types of ideas and are what ignite and bring them to life. The 3rd-Eye and Pineal gland is how we receive ideas from higher realms as a form of vertical transmission that seeds the heart (and nervous system) with the feeling of that idea, producing a corresponding horizontal transmission that organizes and connects us with that same idea in everything around us. The ideas we get from the higher plane are expressed emotionally within our current situation, and connect us to others living out the same idea as a part of a greater dynamic that’s of the same or similar nature. The higher source of consciousness transmits through the subconscious mind, which is passive and receptive in nature, providing the “program” that serves to lead us into a specific idea as the fulfillment of our dreams and our true destiny.

The Soul speaks to the Subconscious through Metaphor and Symbolic Ideas

This idea is represented by the capstone (Higher Self) of the “all-seeing eye” on the pyramid (triune mind) that’s actually an antenna and mirror that reveals the “micro and macro as being complementary opposites of the same thing”.  This idea is further symbolized by the equal armed cross. As above, so below, forms the vertical arm of the cross as information coming from the plane above, that sets the equivalent emotional frequency as a living (active) pattern (form), which transmits and receives information of the same emotional nature on the material or lateral plane. This transmission within the material plane is represented by the horizontal line of the cross, which intersects at the heart or center, and in Sacred Geometry by the Vesica Piscis of the Dyad as the “womb of the universe”, which expands and separates from itself as the Monad, then births reality out of the same qualities it shares in common with another to form a joint reality.

The higher mind, represented by the single point at the top of the triangle (3rd-eye as the unified mind), divides into polar opposites of itself as it descends into the lower plane of material reality as dual aspects – body and soul, subconscious and self-conscious, and inner and outer – and acts “on itself” in the lower plane by informing and programming the subconscious aspect of Itself. This primary form of mental programming comes as feelings and mental impressions that are of an internal and subtle source, yet strangely powerful, compared to the mental programming that comes from the outer world which is loud, often intense and obtrusive, and being formed out of multiple agendas all taking place simultaneously that only acts to awaken within us emotions and ideas of the same nature. Emotions are the language of the material plane and are of a universal nature, where we all experience them in pretty much the same way, whereas the thoughts we form in response to them are unique to us as the memories we formed while experiencing those same emotions.

The soul, which partakes in both the spiritual and the material world as the medium that ties them together, is what produces both the inner and the outer reality, which it then creates the illusion of having to “choose between” in terms of how it identifies with the reality of its own making and the experiences that naturally ensue out of its decision. If the soul mistakes itself for “being” the body, only sensing itself “as” the body, and lives life for the sake of material gain and the fulfillment of selfish desires, “building itself” out of the material plane, it “bonds itself” to the material body and “dies” (its identity) with the body. If the soul realizes it’s true identity as a spiritual being and answers the call of its destiny to serve the greater whole of humanity, and utilizes its ability to “create itself” by identifying instead with its higher self, then it builds itself according to spirit, and magnetizes itself to the spiritual plane. The soul itself exists as an “archetypal idea” that it creates of itself rather than an actual personality that’s limited to a specific body, time, and place. By releasing all attachments to the material plane as a means of creating its “sense of self” as something and someone specific, it resides in an immortal state and as a result transcends the death of the body.

The Nature of Conflict between Known and Unknown aspects of Ourselves

Our Pineal and corresponding third-eye is our transmitter and receiver to the higher realms of our true divine nature. We’re always being led through intuitive methods as subtle ideas that are superimposed over outer ideas revealing the true nature of things as an opposite and direct reflection of each other. They contrast with each other in order to define and bring clarity. Inner turmoil is designed to show us where we’re in “conflict with ourselves” between conscious and unconscious aspects that are working together to produce our experience of ourselves as a cohesive reality. It shows us where we’re having trouble making decisions, where there’s a contrast between the inner and the outer, between how we feel in contrast to the expectations of others that seem to contradict each other. Where we feel one way and know in very clear terms what we want to do, but feel afraid to do it because of the consequences it will render. Where self-doubt, sabotaging tendencies and beliefs seemingly prevent us from doing it, or we constantly talk ourselves out of it without ever actually taking action on it to create it.

Internal conflict is always showing us a choice that we’re having difficulty making, or where we think we’ve made a firm decision yet remain in a constant state of debating it by going back and forth. If we simply make the decisions we need to, the conflict ceases and we immediately move forward in creating the reality of our decision, though it may simultaneously act to set another one in motion. But if we don’t make the decision we know we need to make and we continue on the same path causing the inner turmoil, we just continue going back and forth, and act to torment ourselves through an anguish that’s self-inflicted and maintained in a habitual manner.

Pulling it all together

We’re always in the process of receiving, transforming, and transmitting information as imaginary ideas from multiple planes simultaneously through intuition. The higher and lower plane as a vertical transmission is polar in nature as complementary opposites, whereas the material plane as a horizontal transmission is sympathetic in nature. We can only receive a transmission from the higher plane while we’re in a passive and receptive state within the lower plane. All communication from our Higher Self comes through our subconscious mind, which exists in a constant passive and receptive state, and becomes known to us consciously through feelings, dreams, notions, mental impressions, sudden impulses, intuitive insights, enhanced awareness, and as an inner voice. The subconscious is what produces our perception of the outer world, and reflects the metaphorical idea it’s been seeded with as a projection onto the outer world where we often experience it through a form of coincidence and synchronistic unfolding that has a magical feeling around it, or as a realization around the inner nature of things.

When a transmission comes from a Higher Spiritual source, it comes as a feeling that contains a “whole idea” as an imaginary reality that serves as a metaphor that provides the programming necessary for producing it as an outer reality of the same or similar nature. All ideas are “original in nature”, and not “self-produced” from the personality of the body and the memories of our formative conditioning. As we form a comprehension of them they act to educate us as to the true nature of things in terms of how the spiritual is what’s always acting to create and animate the material world. They never make decisions for us, but act instead to bring us a deeper awareness around things that show us new ways of perceiving them, allowing us to make new and more intelligent decisions for our life. They come as a form of guidance that expands our awareness around whatever it is we’re asking or wondering about that dissolves our limitations which are always born out of an incorrect perception of ourselves.

Communication that’s telepathically transmitted from the lower, material plane comes as emotional charges of some form that only act to invoke memory, which was self-produced by our personality through how we were raised, and uses that memory as the means to create the present to be of the same idea as the past. Emotions produce automatic behaviors in us in exactly the same way instinct informs and creates automatic behaviors in animals. As we receive an emotional charge, we immediately reference and associate with a memory that was created out of the same emotional state and repeat the same behaviors in an instant and automatic fashion.

        All thoughts that we telepathically tune into and act to receive within the material plane are a form of memory that’s been created by other humans at some point throughout history. As we form imaginary realities with a strong emotion associated with them, we imprint that memory on the ether, which is the same plane of information all of life is tied into within the lower plane as a form of recycled archetypes. We only have the ability to tune into and act as a receiver for the same type of thoughts born out of the same type of emotional states that we’re programmed with. It’s always our emotional state, and not our thoughts, that connect us to everything else within the material world.

When an idea as a imaginary thought comes from above, it’s always original in nature and acts to produce a unique form of reality that doesn’t stem from our current memories within our current body or personality. As the idea is turned into a reality by adapting it to our paradigm and current life situation, forming what you could call a symbolic idea as a “seed” (program), it’s brought down into the heart center of the subconscious (4th chakra) where it becomes sensational, and acts to invoke emotions (3rd chakra) that are arousing (2nd chakra) and produce our physical reality (1st chakra) as an equivalent outer experience of the inner reality that started in the imagination.

As it enters the heart, symbolic of the subconscious, it forms a horizontal transmission as a kind of gravitational field (electromagnetic field) and connects us to that same emotional reality in everything around us. The reality as a vibration has a self-organizing mechanism in it that acts to organize and configure the outer reality to metaphorically match the inner reality. We can receive transmissions from the material plane while in a fully active state with our conscious, thinking mind, whereas we can only receive communication from higher planes when we pacify the active aspect of our thinking mind. It’s only from a calm, peaceful, and meditative state that we’re able to be a “receiver” for communication from higher planes. This communication is prompted by prayer and “asking” for guidance of some kind, or from our normal state of wondering about something, which acts as a form of inquiry or request for more information as awareness.

Self-Mastery: Mastering the Ability to Control and Direct your Thoughts and Attention

While knowledge as theory gives us the basis for practice, we only truly “learn” (live and earn) by bringing the knowledge into practice somehow in our daily life. We only truly know what we attain through direct experience and can willfully demonstrate as a part of our normal abilities and behavior. Conceptualizing something in a purely theoretical form while frequently contemplating or discussing it will have a tendency to explore and penetrate the deeper levels of an idea, but until we “become one with an idea” and experience it in a direct way by being it, we never actually acquire or own it. Knowledge that’s contemplated or studied but never applied is merely a form of entertainment or mental hobby.  Whenever we study something, we’re always using other people’s ideas and perhaps imagining them in our own way, but we only really know if something is true or produces what it claims to through the direct experience of it.

We have to always maintain a sense of equilibrium between the body, soul, and spirit by utilizing them simultaneously through an actual practice. One-sided training is not only unproductive, but it can cause an imbalance that can be destructive and produce undesirable effects. This is obvious in our modern day society’s tendency to try and educate without first teaching the ability to control compulsive, random thinking and the ability to concentrate without interruption from unwanted thoughts for an extended period of time. The only knowledge we truly maintain at the eternal level of the soul, which is our “nature” that forms our character, is what we build into our muscle by turning it into a habit that becomes a part of our natural behavior, way of perceiving, and daily lifestyle.

Applying knowledge not only requires the knowledge itself as a theory of some kind that gives you the means to start, but it also requires you to develop “qualities” that are necessary in applying it. Theory is the intellectual aspect, practice is the intuitive aspect as a process, and art is the manifestation as a result. While we think in materialistic terms that we’re acquiring the skill implied by the knowledge, from the soul perspective, which is always about “being”, it’s the qualities we have to employ and develop in order to apply it that’s the actual knowledge in energetic and intuitive terms as a form of soul conditioning. In all spiritual practices the most basic conditions for development are intention, diligence, patience, perseverance, concentration, and devotion. It’s comes as a love and desire for the knowledge by becoming one with it in spirit, mind (soul), and body. It requires diligence and a deep sense of utter devotion. While you can be kind, forgiving, and lenient towards others, you must develop an attitude of being studious, unrelenting, and pitiless on yourself. You have to exercise a stringent form of self-discipline in everything you do. Set high standards and expectations, and then push yourself to not only achieve them, but master them.

Only what’s practiced in a consistent and diligent manner becomes a habit. When something becomes a habit it arises in us naturally. It becomes a part of our natural tendencies in any given situation and forms our natural perception and behaviors. By building practices into our daily lifestyle as a part of our normal routine, we faithfully employ them and develop ourselves by way of them. Once we have become accustomed to a particular exercise, the urge for it comes naturally. It’s only when we begin doing something as a natural part of our being that we have actually “acquired it” as part of our souls memory which forms our inner nature. We have to always be disciplined and diligent in all our efforts in order to progress and thereby ascend.

The very first step in any form of spiritual development is controlling, disciplining, and mastering your thoughts. The mind has a tendency to wander constantly and operate out of autopilot most of the time. Our thoughts come so natural and automatic that even when we are disciplining ourselves, we’re often in the midst of a thought process before we even realize what we’re doing, and are able to bring ourselves back into a focused state. This is perfectly natural, and in the beginning, when first employing your will to direct and redirect your thoughts, it’ll be a constant process. However, like anything, the more you’re able to stay focused and continually realize and direct your thoughts, the easier and more natural it becomes. This is why patience and perseverance are required. So don’t let yourself become discouraged in the beginning when it can seem somewhat difficult.

In order to cultivate abilities, we need to start off with simple practices that  we perform two or three times a day for five to fifteen minutes at a time. It’s recommended to do these in a balanced way in the morning upon rising, midday when relaxing, and in the evening. Start off with small time frames of 5 minutes, then as you master them, gradually increase the amount of time you spend doing them to 10 minutes. Increase the frequency you do each in whatever way is appropriate according to your daily activities. Always start with small steps and only after you have mastered each step, work your way up. Each process must be mastered before moving on to the next, because the next step requires full use of the previous step which lays the foundation for it. We have to be able to use certain abilities in order to perform other abilities that are an extension or outgrowth of it.

Equilibrium of spirit (still), soul (will), and body (automatic) are always important to maintain and practice together because they ideally operate in a cohesive manner. The problem most have with controlling and directing their thoughts is that the lower mind of the body that produces a continuous stream of automatic and redundant thoughts has been allowed to run unchecked, while the willful mind of the soul has been greatly underused or ignored completely, and the still, empty mind of the spirit is something many feel they can’t actually achieve. This is due to developing in an unbalanced way with sole emphasis on the lower mind. For this reason, development that’s undertaken intentionally must always be conducted in a balanced way, exercising all 3 levels of the mind and body. So for this exercise, which is in 3 parts, we’ll work on developing the ability to observe or simply witness your own thoughts and bring them under control, discipline and direct your thoughts through concentration, and the ability to master your thoughts by stilling and emptying your mind of verbal thoughts altogether and entering into the experience of pure being.

Preparation for each step:  All exercises should be done in a private and quiet environment where you won’t be disturbed for 5 to 15 minutes, while in a fully relaxed position.  Don’t do them when feeling tired, as you must remain fully awake and aware throughout the process. Awareness is key. It may be a good idea to splash your face and upper body with cold water before you begin. Do not fall asleep during these exercises or they won’t be beneficial.

  • Sit or lay down with your body fully supported.
  • Close your eyes to block out distraction, and focus on the rhythm of your breathing. Let your mind enter into the rhythm.
  • Relax your entire body by setting the intention to relax, then mentally directing it to relax, and then feeling it relax.

Step 1) Thought Control

       This step allows you to begin gaining an awareness of thoughts that normally operate in a completely automatic and unconscious fashion. This is the habitual and compulsive aspect of the subconscious mind controlling the conscious and willful mind. Whatever we focus on and think about we become, and we act to create more of in our present situation. When thoughts are allowed to run in an unchecked manner, we lend our will to them and we create in our life in an unconscious manner. On the spiritual plane “thought is action”, and thoughts are how we create in the most fundamental sense on the material plane. So the first step to any form of conscious development is gaining control over our thoughts through self-awareness and being able to intentionally guide and determine our thoughts in a willful manner.

  • Allow a natural train of thought to form and spontaneously begin free-flowing. Make no attempt to control these thoughts, simply observe them to become aware of what they are.
  • Notice that most pertain to whatever is happening in your life at the moment, issues that have a strong emotional content, family or relationship issues, job related issues, whatever is weighing on your mind, and simply redundant meaningless thoughts that are purely habitual and automatic in nature.
  • When thoughts arise that tend to “pull you into them” where you begin dwelling in them, simply stop, pull your attention away, and allow them to continue in a free-flowing stream of thought while silently observing them from a detached perspective of not being “in them as a part of them”, but rather remaining free and independent of them, observing them from a distance watching them as they flow by, or as they rise and fall.
  • Don’t try to control your train of thought or lose sight of yourself by getting side-tracked and dwelling in any one thought, but simply observe them in as attentive way as possible gaining an awareness of them.
  • Be conscious of everything, and don’t try to hurry the exercise. Let it flow naturally while giving it your full attention.
  • You’ll notice that in the beginning you’re bombarded with thoughts in an almost chaotic manner as they quickly pass by. Pay close attention to them and try to remember them.
  • As you become aware of what normally operates as an unconscious and automatic process, you’ll also gain a natural form of control over it. Awareness itself brings a sense of control as the natural use of your will.
  • You’ll notice from one exercise to the next that these thoughts appear less chaotic and will gradually begin diminishing until only a few thoughts emerge in your consciousness as if coming from afar.

Practice this first step until you gain the ability to easily control your thoughts by becoming aware of them. Mastering this first step is critical to the development of all other steps. In all forms of self-development nothing is more important than gaining control over your thoughts and being able to direct them in a willful and intentional manner. Only move on to the next step when you have completed this step sufficiently and have mastered it.

2) Thought Discipline and Developing Concentration

       This step deals with being able to concentrate our thoughts without letting other thoughts obtrude. What usually prevents us from concentrating solely on one idea for an extended period of time is that other thoughts having to do with our daily chores and annoyances spontaneously arise and distract us away from what we were thinking about. We must learn how to avoid thoughts that do not belong in our personal life while only entertaining those that do, and in doing so, we’ll become a different person altogether. In this exercise we will develop our ability to be present in our daily life in a fully attentive manner, and be able to concentrate our mind solely on one idea for an extended period of time without interruption from unwanted and meaningless thoughts.

  • Pick an idea, subject, or concept and direct all of your attention into that thought alone. As you concentrate on it and other thoughts obtrusively arise, redirecting your attention in an automatic fashion, become aware of them, and then simply remove you attention from them and place it back on your chosen subject. Resist all distractions repeatedly until they begin subsiding and you no longer have a problem staying focused for extended periods of time by maintaining full control of your attention.
  • Move this same idea out into your daily life and apply it in a broader sense. Whatever it is that you’re doing, be fully present in it with your full attention on it, and anytime a distraction arises as a thought that doesn’t pertain to the moment, become aware of it, and redirect your attention back into your present situation.
  • Remain present in your daily situations and only allow thoughts that pertain to the moment or situation occupy your mind. Anytime thoughts of the past or another situation arise and steal your attention, realize it, and redirect your attention back into the moment.
  • When you’re at work, block out thoughts of your personal life and focus all of your attention on work. When you leave work and go home to your private life, leave all thoughts of work behind, and think only about what pertains to your private life. As thoughts of work arise while in your private life, become aware of them, and consciously redirect your attention back into your present situation.
  • The more you practice the ability to control your attention, the easier and more natural it becomes.

This practice when mastered will have a huge impact on all areas of your life, and will greatly improve your ability to enter into a truly creative mode. The only time we can actually create in our life in an intentional and meaningful manner is in the “present moment”. Do not move on to the next step until this one has been mastered. Each step is required in order to be able to achieve the next.

3)  Mastery of Thoughts and Residing in Eternal Peace

This step teaches you how to create a complete vacancy of mind that’s void of thought and fully present in your inner sense of pure being. By subduing all active thought you enter into a fully relaxed state of inner peace and calmness. All stress subsides and you’re able to experience everything in a direct and actual manner rather than through the commentary of your thoughts. When all thought subsides we enter into a form of rapport with the present and we experience everything as it is in this moment without filtering it through the past and reshaping it to be like us through how we think about it. In this way, we form an entirely different relationship with life and become an entirely different person as a result.

  • Create a complete vacancy of mind while resisting all thoughts that try to command your attention. Empty your mind completely, and enter into a state of presence and pure being.
  • Rigorously reject any thought that competes for attention, and return to a complete mental vacancy. Do this repeatedly until thoughts begin completely subsiding and you exist in a state of pure beingness for an extended period of time.
  • Bring this same practice into the ordinary moments of your daily life by becoming fully present in whatever you’re doing, empty your mind of mental commentary and habitual thinking, and simply perceive things as they are in that moment. Form an expanded awareness of everything around you without letting thoughts about it enter your mind.

When you are able to stay in this state for a full 10 minutes, the purpose of this exercise has been achieved. This is important because it lays the foundation necessary for continued development.

Once you have mastered these three basic mind exercises and learned how to control and direct your attention and thoughts, you’ll be ready to move on to other steps in self-mastery that require self-control and your ability to use your will in an intentional and deliberate manner. By learning how to perceive things without a mental commentary or by bringing past ideas into the present and using them to create your experience of the present, you’ll be able to naturally correct perceptual errors that have become automatic and perceive things in a new light as they actually are a part from you and your preconceived judgments about them.

DNA Transformation – The Law of the Tetrad

The Universal Laws demonstrated in Sacred Geometry provide us with the practical tools for learning how to use our mind to regulate our body

One of the most basic interpretations of the Law of the Tetrad, which is formed in the womb of the Dyad, is that all outward communication as information is received inwardly by the subconscious and DNA (which is the brain of the cell), and modifies the organization of the internal system (etheric body), altering its vibratory frequency and modifying it’s outer appearance (material structure) accordingly. DNA is composed of a liquid crystalline substance that’s both etheric and material in nature, and acts as a medium for the transfer and decoding of information between the etheric holographic fields of astral light (ether), and the material body. Because DNA is primarily composed of etheric substance (liquid light), it’s modulated through an exchange of information that works intuitively on the etheric body, which is what’s used to re-inform the cellular structure and specialization process of the material-molecular body.

An exchange of information occurs within the inner core of all things as a form of receiver that picks up on waves being transmitted through the ether, which modifies the “informational structure” of the core. Just as the Pineal gland acts as the receiver and decoder of information from higher realms, the DNA of the body acts as a receiver and decoder for complementary information that instantaneously changes the state of every cell (energetic entanglement) through the integration and assimilation of information, altering the whole body based on the energetic state of the etheric body as the subtle electromagnetic field of information used to regenerate it. Our body undergoes a constant process of cellular regeneration based on the information as memory processed by both the subconscious and DNA of the body.

The subtle realm of both the material body and the entire material realm, exist and function outside of time and space in a unified manner, as if they’re “one organism”.  The phenomena that we scientifically call “communication” doesn’t take place in “space and time” (4th dimension) as an actual transference of information from one point to another, but comes as an instantaneous shift that happens everywhere in the body at once. Vibratory information as waves are reflected over the surface of the mind-field (bio-field) that surrounds, envelopes, and permeates the physical body (electromagnetic field) and polarized aspects are absorbed (inducted and sorted) and received internally by the DNA-Pineal, and serves to reprogram the etheric hologram as the internal reality that arises naturally in the imagination. Through the corresponding operations of both the Pineal and DNA, the “mind and body”, and the entire outer reality of which they exist as a part, are always in-sync as “one organism”.

The phantom (Holy Ghost) is a holographic pre-image of biostructures that accompanies all biological forms and exists as a whole registry of wave-copies and dynamic matrices of information as a convoluted continuum used for organizing, constructing, regenerating, and animating them in an automated fashion. This holographic pre-image as the informational-fields used to structure and regenerate the body is known in Spiritual Sciences as the etheric body, which is the twin or double of the material body as a hologram or 3-D, spatial blueprint for constructing it. This etheric hologram is composed of astral light as essence or bio-photons that both receive and transmit information carried on waves through the astral plane of the Earth as morphogenetic fields of the instinctual plane of the collective unconscious. The basic Law of the Tetrad, is when two fields (Monads) vibrating at the same frequency merge into and blend with each other (resonant induction), forming an interference pattern (Dyad), that acts to cancel out some attributes, while matching and amplifying other ones, modifying the overall vibration into a new one as their unique combination (triad) that forms coherence as a new pattern or offspring that re-informs and alters the etheric body, which modifies the cellular regeneration of the physical body (Tetrad).

The Law of Tetrad represents when non-local information enters into the local apparatus through resonance, and reformulates it into a coherent pattern as an internal image (sign) that’s “reflected” outward as a projection forming the physical equivalent as its expression. The information is “recorded” (like a mirror image) on the physical DNA used to organize electromagnetic fields as organizational structures of proteins into the pattern or configuration of the frequency, which forms the etheric body as a holographic template for organizing the molecular structure of the organism. The etheric hologram as a bio-field acts as both a transmitter and receiver of waves of information that are of the same form or frequency. The incorporation of diverse information of a similar nature that can be synthesized into the cellular programming evolves it to new structures, forms, and ways of being. It forms a greater and more diverse range of self-expression.

DNA acts as a bio-computer or quantum hologram that’s a convoluted liquid crystalline structure that’s an intricate dynamic matrix of information that’s always morphing based on how it’s being programmed with new integrated information. It’s always receiving information from other morphic fields around it, interpreting that information through a process of adapting it to its existing structure, modifying its meaning, imprinting and recording the modified version of the information etherically, altering its structure (vibration) accordingly, while simultaneously radiating, emitting, and transmitting it. Vibration as a field of information produces an electromagnetic field as a holographic form that takes information as thoughts, words, and ideas and turns it into a 3-D form comprised of subtle energy (invisible) that becomes the invisible force as a field that organizes and holds matter together forming and sustaining a biological system.

Scientists have now discovered that what they originally thought was “junk DNA” (98% of it), is actually more of a memory bank that operates much like the human mind does, and is always exchanging energy as information with everything else, and works off the same rules as grammar and language. Its encoded information is linguistic in nature, and contains dual wave-forms as both optical and acoustic. It works through speech as words and sentences that form images in the imagination as the meaning of the words. Words as a sound vibration form into patterns of light as the image inherent in the word, or that the word represents in terms of what it means. As we speak we simultaneously form and internal reality of what we’re talking about. Words form images, and sentences form scenarios or a chain-of-association as whole realities. A reality produces an experience of that idea as its reason and meaning. The meaning things have for us produce the stories we tell ourselves about things as a way of making sense of them. Our stories as an internal narrative exists as a form of “theme” produced by our mental paradigm (vibratory structure of our mind as a dynamic matrix of associated ideas), gives us a consistent and cohesive experience of reality. Everything that exists happens for a reason because all things are called forth into reality through thoughts (internal speech), which are the cause of all forms (In the beginning was the word, and the word was with God, and through the spoken word which moved across the waters (liquid crystal), all of life was called forth and formed from the elements).

Our DNA, like our mind, is programmed linguistically through visual imagery. One of the most fundamental laws is the Law of Cause and Effect, in which every effect as a material form has a cause and a reason for being here. Nature operates out of the Law of Conservation, and never produces excess or waste of any kind, but rather uses the least amount of energy possible to perform an operation in the most efficient manner possible. Everything exists for a reason and has a purpose. The phantom effect as vibration that produces an electromagnetic field as the holographic pattern inherent in the vibration, is based on both verbal and visual information which exists in its most primary state as thoughts. As we think and imagine our thoughts as a virtual reality that gives us an internal experience of them, we are literally programming our DNA as our subconscious mind to produce the reality of those thoughts as an outward correspondence.

The ongoing programming of our genes doesn’t necessarily change our physical qualities and characteristics, but rather works topologically, where our inner constitution changes. As we develop by programming ourselves with our own thoughts and the thoughts of others (speaking), our character is developed without changing our body or general structure. We program our genes with all levels of our being through our thoughts, feelings, emotional states, and behavioral dynamics that all form different aspects of the same cohesive reality. As we change our inner being as our mental paradigm, the physical world itself doesn’t change in the fundamental sense, but how it “appears to us” changes. Our perception of it can change quite drastically. The perspective we take and the perception we form from that perspective, create our outer reality as our experience of it based on resonance. Experiences that we form that are intense or have a strong emotional component make up what we can call our actual memory as our long term memory that we continue to create out of forming all of our other life experiences to be of a similar nature. Our memories produced by how we interpreted life events, are also the memory that programs our genes, becoming “genetic memory”, and are passed down generation to generation as inherited tendencies. We simultaneously act to populate the astral field of morphic resonance with those memories, making them available to anyone that’s of a similar nature to us, and who can therefore act as a receiver and processor for those memories as their “own thoughts”.

Morphic resonance works on the same principles as quantum entanglement and quantum coherent system assembly, where once two fields and particles blend and form into a variant, both continue to operate as one, as a whole system of complementary opposites. What we connect with, feel a sense of chemistry with, or form a pronounced reaction to in any way, is what seemingly exists outside of ourselves as a complementary opposite to the same pattern as a behavioral dynamic. We can only “see” (perceive) in everything else what’s of the same nature (vibratory pattern) as we are. All comprehension comes as a form of resonance, as the vibratory pattern that forms our mental filters that we look through that only allow us to see, interpret meaningfully, and respond to what’s of the same pattern as opposite and complementary roles in a dynamic cohesive system.

We only alter our own vibration as a mental state by incorporating variable information within the same frequency, re-informing our overall system with new variables. For this reason most evolution is a very gradual process that takes place over long periods of time, and by acquiring different bodies with different characteristics, in different conditions and circumstances, that allow us to develop in new ways. We can facilitate and greatly speed up our own evolution by undertaking a constant form of learning by continuously providing ourselves with new information that we absorb and integrate, producing different types of experiences that become the memory that upgrades our paradigm and changes our character, our basic demeanor and behaviors, and correspondingly our perception of the outer world. As we change internally through the integration of new information that produces new perceptual filters and experiences that become memory as our vibratory structure, our outer reality as our perception of it, changes to the exact same degree.

All information as knowledge, has dual properties as both acoustic and optical that together form the “phantom effect” as an electromagnetic field that organizes light as essence into a form that serves as a blueprint, or 3-D spatial map for generation, cell differentiation, and location within the whole system as a growth and development process. Transmission of information as the teleportation of holograms will produce the physical equivalent as an organizational process. It simultaneously attracts and organizes into a holistic system whatever is “like it” (same type of information), while repelling and not noticing (integrating) what’s not. As we think about an idea, both in words and pictures, repeatedly and with intensity, we produce the electromagnetic field of those thoughts as a virtual reality that becomes the magnetic force for gathering, organizing, and producing its correspondence as an outer reality that gives us an experience of it. Our thoughts are the creative force of both ourselves (mind and body) and our perception of reality because the same vibration as a holographic pattern, is producing both. We are always the ones creating and evolving ourselves through our own thoughts which form our entire reality. The same vibration as a pattern structures the internal and the external to be of the same nature and story, which together convey the same meaning.

In Sacred Geometry the Tetrad, represented by a cube or square, and the number 4, as the 4 Elements that form the material world, is produced by the Monad as a scalar wave (unification), that regenerates by propagating, forming itself as another (the outer world as the same pattern-frequency as the inner world), forming an interference pattern as an interaction with itself that produces a variable as a new combination (Triad) that rises first internally through the imagination of the mind as a virtual-image, that’s then reflected (projected as a perceptual lens) outward, forming the material manifestation of the internal image. This gives us the basic formula for transforming ourselves using our own mind and imagination as the most basic form of what we call “will”. Our will is our ability to create whatever we desire by embodying and becoming one with it, first in our mind, which programs our body with the frequency of our thoughts, connecting with that same idea in the outer world by first producing the perception of it, interaction with it, and ultimately, the material manifestation of it as a correspondence. While we don’t change the “original creation” (the body or outer reality) itself, we change how it appears and behaves by producing a variable of it. We re-organize the information it’s comprised of into new sequences as sentences by how we think about it, which make it mean something different. All reality as both ourselves and the outer world, is produced by meaning. The meaning we give things forms our perception of reality.

The Goal of Meditation – Personal Transformation by Becoming One with God

axis mundi Meditation, as a practice, works off the same principles as trance and hypnosis, and serves the same overall purpose. When we meditate, we completely relax our body while withdrawing all consciousness from it, and we lose awareness of our physical existence. We calm and silence our thoughts and enter into a purely inner state that’s spacious and calm. This is the experience of rendering the conscious mind (active thinking mind) passive and latent, while bringing the subconscious into an active and dominant state. We switch roles, so to speak, of what is inherent in our normal waking state. The subconscious, unlike the conscious, acts as a passive vessel for ideas to be planted in that it gestates, grows, and brings into expression as an experience of reality. This is much like a suggestion that’s given while in a hypnotic trance that’s not resisted, but readily taken in, and allowed to take hold, then developed in the imagination by thinking about it. The whole process of personal transformation as intentional growth and development of latent potential, comes through a form of ‘programming’ or introducing new information into the subconscious, which accepts it, and uses it to re-inform the mind in terms of our mental paradigm, which simultaneously alters how the body functions and behaves, and it becomes a natural part of our being. All energies are polar in nature as active and passive components of a single entity, and move back and forth between active and passive states. Whichever one is active, the other resumes the passive position. They can’t both be active at the same time. This same principle applies to parallel dimensions of what we call higher and lower planes, and when our mind is active on the material plane, the spiritual plane, complementary companion to the material, is rendered passive and inactive. By putting our physical mind in a passive state, it not only activates the spiritual plane of the universal mind, but becomes the receptacle for the thoughts and ideas that are transmitted between planes. finger of God By making our physical self a passive receiver, knowledge as ideas can be directly injected into the subconscious mind. Conception takes place where we are impregnated with knowledge as a mental transmission. This acts much like a germinal process, and the idea, once planted, begins growing and budding as an adaption to the individual mind that’s acting as the means for it to express through. All germinal processes occur in the darkness as the early stages of mental unfoldment with a genesis of ideas, rather than being received in a fully developed state. Once planted, and allowed to germinate, they are developed into full ideas by the active forces of the individual mind conceiving them. We are always required to use our creative capacity of imagined thought to develop ideas as our own. Meditation polarizes us to the higher planes where knowledge comes in as an unbroken flow of information about a particular object or subject. In purely practical terms, meditation is the only truly safe method of self-regeneration. It draws nerve energy up from the reproductive centers without any fixation of attention on the centers themselves or visualization process for intentionally drawing it up, and without any thought about sexual functions. Meditation directs the currents of solar force by acts of self-conscious attention. This forms an axiom as the fluid channel between higher and lower dimensions, and is the means through which “above” seeds and impregnates that which is below, and is the principle represented in the saying “as above, so below, in the wondrous operations of the One thing”. Meditation opens the channel for knowledge to flow freely into the subconscious mind, through what’s called the “axis mundi”, traditionally illustrated by a tubular funnel or wormhole-like tunnel, or the trunk of a tree, that connects the upper branches (air-intellect) with the root system (fertile earth) which forms as a symmetrical reflection of it. Mystic_Moon Meditation also requires, and therefore acts to develop, intense concentration, which is a necessary faculty of the mind for the activity that leads to the discovery of difficult and elusive modes of truth. This fosters natural intelligence as the awareness of the hidden mysteries in Nature. This is how the great occult powers of the Adepts are developed through intense concentration and prolonged meditation. All innate powers of the soul are developed through meditative states that act to work directly through the subconscious mind, which is the aspect of the mind that governs and creatively utilizes the elements of the material plane to self-actualize skills and abilities through natural behaviors that are a part of our primary perception, and manifest a corresponding material reality by rearranging it through resonance. Meditation brings us into contact with the subtle force as the strength whereby the inner beast is tamed, not by active force or willed action, but through the impregnation of truth that grows inside until it ultimately gives birth. All personal expression comes through utilizing the universal knowledge of archetypes and embodying the proper states of mind necessary to fluently express in the outer world as an ‘original idea’. Meditation unveils the mysteries of Nature to the enlightened seer, by revealing the inner nature of things that’s producing the outer appearance and motivating the behaviors it naturally displays. The active force of the self-conscious mind (thinker) in a passive state becomes the witnessing faculty of the mind, and doesn’t exert an influence or control over incoming information, but merely “watches it” as it spontaneously unfolds before it. In this way, we act to receive knowledge that we are entirely unaware of in the normal sense, and are educated from purely internal sources instead of external ones. kundalini Meditation is symbolically represented in Spiritual Sciences by the 8-pointed star, which forms a wheel, circle, or sphere that’s the symbol of spirit. The form the ideas take on and play out resembles a clear essence as the substance of stars which is a translucent, gaseous fluid of an almost ghost-like nature. These impressionistic images, often resemble the ‘nebula’ in space that accompany star-systems as their raw emanation and ultimate substance that’s ‘charged’ and coagulated to take shape as various life-forms. Often we have the “experience of seeing”, even though there’s no actual (material-sensory) image. Sometimes actual forms are not involved at all, and it comes as more of a silent knowing that shows you something about and idea or object you didn’t know before.  Much like a deeper form of thinking that’s penetrating and feeling oriented. In all of our creative work we’re working with an actual force that has definite forms of expression, and meditation modifies and transmutes this cosmic energy into physical expression. This energy comes into expression as a nerve-force that stimulates the body, altering and producing a personal expression of a distinct character. This control of nerve-force works through the seven inner stars, which correspond with the seven colors of the spectrum, the seven major metals, the seven planets of the zodiac, and the seven notes of the musical scale, infusing life with a distinct personality and set of behaviors as their mode of expression, all originating from a purified state of original ideas. Meditation always focuses on a state of mind as a quality of consciousness that naturally undergoes modes of operation as a natural form of self-expression, and recognizes natural laws as an interconnected larger process. It works by creating the “experience of it”, so you become the vibration of it. When we induce a relaxed state and turn all of our attention inward and concentrate on inner feelings as an actual experience being produced within us, we arouse the activity of corresponding centers, without any danger of becoming energetically congested, which is what often happens when we work with our own system in an intentional, though somewhat uneducated manner. This is how we gain knowledge of the universal science from a direct and pure source, unadulterated of personal interpretation by someone else, by concentrating on a quality of consciousness as a “state”, which has a natural form and mode of operation inherent in it that ensues from it spontaneously. Out of “states” come entire realities as the expression of the characteristics it infuses matter with.  All spiritual knowledge comes in a unified form that “shapes us” (our character) by blending and becoming one with it, modifying our character to be of the same nature and therefore ideal for expressing it in the world. We acquire knowledge by “becoming” it in form (mind and body). Meditation is therefore the ideal way to transform yourself, because the qualities you’re conceiving within you, as primal (formative) knowledge that simultaneously shapes your character, is of a pure nature and straight from a higher, spiritual source. This is the most basic form of “God’s Will be done through you”, where we put our own anxieties and desires aside, and become a neutral vessel for higher powers to work through. We consciously connect to a higher source while becoming a passive vessel for information to be downloaded into, reforming our mind through the integration of becoming one with it, and it “shapes our character” to be like it in consciousness, and out of that state-of-being . . . we naturally express and create in very specific ways.

The Law of Polarity – The Relationship between Higher (Spirit) and Lower (Material) Planes

thought

The idea of higher and lower planes are multiple aspects that exist in a unified state and operate as what appears to be a single entity. All unified states exist in a primary state of polarity as what we traditionally call electro-magnetic, masculine-feminine, yin-yang, inner-outer, visible-invisible, upper-lower, and so on. Polar opposites of the same thing that form as extremes that never meet or touch, yet are held together in a unified manner. Electromagnetism, for example, forms a natural ‘spiral’ as two forces that simultaneously attract and repel, never actually touch or meet, yet act together to form equilibrium as a stabilized field that’s in constant motion. The most fundamental nature of matter, is comprised of particles ‘held together’ and revolving around an oppositely charged center by ‘invisible forces’. An atom is as much, if not more invisible as visible. The visible is always structured into patterns and held together in a unified manner by the invisible aspects of the same vibratory frequencies. Matter and spirit are opposites of the same thing, existing at different densities and on different planes or dimensions. Matter is the passive (feminine) aspect of spirit, which is the active force that animates and vibrates matter with qualities that form characteristics, which together, produce a unique personality with natural behaviors. The mind is the invisible consciousness that accompanies the body and gives it “life”. Without the mind, the body would die and disintegrate, no longer held together and animated in an active state.

 

The mind itself, synonymous with the soul, divides and becomes polar when entering into the “lower physical plane”, as what we call the subconscious and self-conscious aspects of the individual mind. The subconscious is what gives life to the body by systematically running all biological processes of the body in an automated fashion, in which the self-conscious is almost entirely unaware of. Our body functions perfectly without any thought process or need to direct and control it on our part. Likewise, the conscious mind lives outside of the body for the most part, and is nearly always busy thinking about stuff that has nothing to do with the body, outside of how it uses the body to create an image of itself by associating and identifying with the body. The conscious mind has the ability to directly influence the subconscious mind, and is constantly doing so just through the nature of its thinking, but seldom does so with any awareness or intention, and instead, we have a tendency to allow the subconscious to run our thoughts and create all of our life experiences out of memories of the past as an automated feature of the subconscious.

spacious mind

The subconscious mind of the body, when in an active state, controls the conscious mind which resumes a passive state, and simply ‘thinks’ in an automated fashion by repeating patterns as memories of some form. Likewise, when the conscious mind is in an active and therefore creative state, the body resumes a passive mode and acts as the vehicle for thought by bringing it into expression through correlating activity and behaviors. Whichever aspect of the self is active, the other one acts as its passive component. They’re never both active at the same time, and in an ideal situation, switch back and forth based on what needs to be utilized at any given moment.

 

The mind as the soul or invisible double and companion to the body, when active and dominant, is creative in nature. The body, when active, rendering the soul passive, lacks creativity in the most fundamental sense, and is simply a receptor for thought, and instead of creating in new and novel ways, acts out of memory as existing patterns or thematic ideas that are repeated producing the same “type of experiences” over and over, altered only by how they’re adapted to unique situations and circumstances. When we reside in body-consciousness as our general frame of reference, we are unconscious in the most basic sense of the word, and “create” out of past memories and conditioned tendencies. While in body-consciousness, we act only to “take in” the thoughts and ideas of others, while accepting them as our own, and whatever we’ve been taught, or by observing what’s being demonstrated in our external environment, all of which act to “program us” (condition) according to the mindset and type of thoughts. We become a conduit for other people’s will, and we’re shaped and determined by outside forces. Because of this we fail to become a unique individual – the creative aspect of your own mind – and instead become “like others”. We fail almost entirely to “think for ourselves” and act instead as a mindless vessel for others.

Afterlife - alien planet - DMT - stargate

If, however, we choose to step into and embrace our ability to self-create by empowering our own mind, we have to learn how to keep the body in a passive state, which is what activates our higher, creative mind. This process is what meditation is built on, and provides us with the process for doing it. In meditation, we start by relaxing the body and withdrawing consciousness from it. In a fully relaxed state, we lose direct awareness of our body, and our bodily activity which primarily result from emotions, anxiety and stress, are no longer prompting and controlling our thoughts, and we enter into a calm inner space, that becomes a receptor for the thoughts and ideas of the higher mind which exists independent of the body. In a passive and receptive state, we’re able to witness our own mind as a kind of neutral and objective knowledge that’s not personal in any way, and does not stem from our own mental paradigm as the regurgitation of past ideas in an attempt to generate new ideas. It comes as brand new knowledge, which, when allowed to enter fully, take hold, and begin unfolding, reveals to us a whole new awareness around commonly held ideas. We clearly ‘see things’ that we were never able to see before. Because we see new ideas from an inner perspective, and use them to ‘look through’ in order to comprehend the outer world or previously held ideas as beliefs, we are transformed by them. Once we become aware, we’re always aware. Once an awakening of some form takes place, we never go back to sleep in regards to it. We see it in terms of how it operates in the most ordinary sense as part of our everyday life, and we begin seeing things in a whole new light.

 

This higher knowledge as brand new ideas come to us through an inward experience that “re-informs” our subconscious mind which accepts it as an actual experience, because of course it is, and it becomes an inherent part of our psychological make-up and serves to transform our mental and emotional paradigm, and how and what we perceive as going on in the outer world. It’s only through a paradigm shift as an inner realization that brings new forms of awareness that our outer life changes accordingly. The mind acts to re-inform the body, not through intellectual theories that are “self-generated” or an extension of learned behavior, but rather through knowledge that’s received through a direct inner experience as a “living reality”. Theory only provides the basis for experimentation to produce a reality as an experience of it. The lower mind is only capable of “taking in” (acting as a vehicle for) information from external sources, and attempting to conceptualize them as an actual reality in order to “prove them”. Yet, all true knowledge comes from internal sources as a reality that’s comprehended through a direct and immediate internal experience of it.

The confusion comes from the inherent paradox and belief that our body is our true self or concrete mind, out of which we seemingly generate “unique thoughts”, when in fact, we’re simply using the thoughts we’ve acted as a receptor for from other people and the conditioning of our formative years and primary education. When in our lower, bodily (concrete) mind, we’re always borrowing and accepting thoughts from other people. The lower mind doesn’t have the “creative faculty”, only the higher mind does that accompanies the lower mind. When in our higher mind, our body acts as a physical conduit, and is still “receiving ideas” from “another source”, which comes, not from the outer external plane, but from an internal, invisible plane. We don’t have to use our mind to formulate them into a conceptualized reality by imagining them. When acquiring knowledge from a higher, non-personal source, it’s given to us (conceived) as a whole reality or idea, and no effort on our part is required. In fact, effort on our part only serves to corrupt and distort it. All we have to do is “witness” it internally (being a passive receptor) as it reveals itself to us. We learn by watching it in our minds eye. Though it’s not tangible in outer sensory terms, it has a heightened sense of “realness” through the inner senses of feeling, emotion, and beauty that are used instead to perceive it. We have an intimate and pronounced experience of it, and because of this, we “know it”. By acting as a neutral receiver for it internally, we become one with it, and know it through ourselves. It inspires a sense of awe, wonder, and mystery, and we feel a deep love for it. The love we feel in response to it anchors and magnifies it, and creates a deep inner longing for more . . . .
