How to Work with Your Subtle Body as Your Mind in Order to Transform Your Reality

Many who have been tutored in the energetic arts have been taught that what we refer to as our “subtle body” serves as a form of blueprint and etheric double for constructing and sustaining our physical body, but don’t know for sure how to work with this idea in the most practical sense. This idea serves to illustrate universal principles that form the basis for how our own “mind” works in creating not only our self, but also our entire material reality. By examining the principles involved we can acquire practical instructions for how to use our own mind in transforming our experience of reality. Through a fundamental misunderstanding of this principle many believe that they need to work with a surrogate as an “energy worker” or practitioner of divinatory arts, or through some form of technological process that’s designed to “alter the vibration of their energy field”, when the truth is we inherently possess everything we need to transform ourselves and our life in whatever way we choose. All we need to do is learn the process necessary for using our own mind to modify and transform our mental paradigm, which “is” the means through which we create not only ourselves as a material being, but the reality we act to naturally project as a direct correspondence of our paradigm.

We must begin this process by defining the terms being used because everyone forms a different mental concept of the same words based on whatever they’ve been taught and formed a belief around, and we need to make sure we’re all talking about the same idea. Our mind functions as a mental sphere or electromagnetic field that acts to organize “essence” (internal light) into a holographic, three-dimensional form that serves as a vessel, vehicle, or instrument for actively expressing in the material world of outer, stellar (sun) light. Once an idea is created internally as a 3-dimensional form that’s vivified by our life force, it’s then animated by our “will” where it plays out as a larger pattern of the same kind and type. This idea is illustrated through what’s referred to in Quantum Physics as the Holographic Principle. This is a fundamental principle which describes how all life exists as “fields within greater fields of the same nature”, and how vibration as a conscious pattern of living energy proliferates equally on multiple scales and levels at the same time.

Fields of what we can call “universal information” (archetypal ideas in their potential state) are used as the means for remaking universal concepts into personalized variations by the individual mind, because both the cosmic and individual mind operate using the same principles. This is why they’re referred to as “universal principles” because they’re fundamental in the sense of how our mind works, rather than pertaining to the material construct produced “by” the mind. The mind itself “is” what we refer to as “the organizing principle” that’s inherent in vibration and is what acts to organize light into the pattern of the vibration. Natural laws pertain to biological systems and how they operate within the material world, while universal laws pertain to the mind and soul, which are what act to organize biological systems while also animating them with Life. Both the mind and soul exist on multiple levels simultaneously while playing out the same patterns as universal themes on different scales. We have an individual mind, a group mind of humanity, and a cosmic mind, as well as an individual soul, the Earth’s soul, and the universal soul of the cosmos. Each aspect of the mind exists in polarity with itself in the other, and together play out the same idea in a harmonious and congruent manner.

We often make a fundamental error in how we think about principles by believing that a principle somehow pertains to the material objects used to comprise a system or model, instead realizing that it’s the “invisible” field of energy that accompanies and is acting to organize, hold together, and animate the model. A principle operates as the natural forces that shape matter itself into a body of light that’s archetypal in nature, which means they’re metaphorical themes rather than fixed systems and rigid ideas. An archetype is what provides the basis as a form of universal template for creating the reality that will bring a particular type of “experience”. It’s an idea as a prototype that’s formed with specific attributes, qualities, and characteristics that determines how it expresses in becoming a “cause” for producing a corresponding “effect”. Each person will take the same archetype as a universal metaphor and theme and shape it to reflect their own nature by how they adapt it to their mental paradigm and their current life situation.

 The same Universal Laws play out in ordering and organizing information into material forms that are imbued with a certain type of personality that behaves in specific ways. The form itself doesn’t give rise to the “qualities it possesses”, but rather the qualities (of consciousness) it’s naturally imbued with determine the form it takes on and how it functions through natural behaviors that act to express those qualities. Qualities, form, and function are three aspects or stages of the same overall process. We don’t ever work with the “form itself” to change its behavior and the operations it naturally undergoes as a form of self-expression but work instead to introduce new qualities and attributes that imbue it with corresponding characteristics. By changing the internal characteristics of the form itself as it’s energetic nature, we also change how it behaves and operates as a normal way of being.

To change a pattern, we don’t work on the pattern being faithfully produced, but rather the vibratory frequency that’s assembling and maintaining the pattern. Our subtle body is often laid out as being comprised of four correlating bodies or energetic sheaths, referred to as our causal, mental, emotional, and physical bodies. Our causal body is formed as an idea that we shape into a mental form in our imagination and imbue with sensations that naturally gives rise to correlating emotions in response to it. The emotion generated comes by how we “present an idea” to ourselves internally forming it into a “feeling”. A thought formed as an “internal representation” that’s brought alive with sensation gives rise to an equivalent emotion, which inhabits it and becomes the motivating force that acts out the pattern of the thought through natural behaviors and activities. In order to change the outcome or what results as a manifestation, we have to change what “caused it”. All physical manifestation comes as a corresponding “effect” produced by a “cause”.    

Our mind (which is invisible and undetectable to the physical senses) is constructed as a sphere of consciousness made by organizing subtle energy as essence into a 3-D model, also referred to as our “paradigm”. Our paradigm is our mental model and what we use as the means for perceiving reality and is constructed out of “internal representations” formed out of experiences that are built-up over time as memory. While we tend to think of memories as independent and often unrelated to each other, what you’ll realize upon closer observation is that all memory is a “holistic system of living information”. Memory is very dynamic and constantly in the process of morphing and evolving based on how we use it as a mental filter for perceiving the present to be the same as the past. We use memory as the “lens” we “look through” to create more and more of the same type of experiences as a consistent and ongoing story about ourselves and our life. As we adapt them to new situations to produce a congruent variation, we acquire diverse attributes that serve to morph and evolve the memory.

Spark of Consciousness

Our life is created in a consistent and harmonious fashion based on how we build an internal representation of an idea that we use as the means of forming an instant interpretation of events that give them “meaning”. Anytime we’re stimulated in a pronounced way by something outside of us, our mind instantly references all memory of the same kind. We use the memory as the perceptual lens for interpreting the present to “mean the same thing” as the past, and we respond in a similar way by automatically displaying the same type of attitude and behaviors. This is the process constantly being used to form immediate and automatic reactions. Memory and emotion are always coherent and act together to form a single reality. The emotion acts as the means for instantly selecting and activating the “pattern” inherent in the memory, which provides us with a thematic template for producing the same type of response and more of the same type of experiences. 

Models can be thought of as dynamic patterns that are in a continuous process of expressing and being used to create experiences of a congruent and harmonious nature. While we tend to think we retain memory of actual events in terms of the physical circumstances, if we examine them in terms of how we replay them in our mind we realize we don’t. Memories are formed by how we interpret events as a way of creating how we experience them. We interpret the events to make them “mean something”, and the meaning we give them shapes the story we tell ourselves about them as the means of experiencing them, and our experiences are built-up over time forming a “theme”. All ideas played out as a material event or situation are processed and internalized by the higher mind as a metaphorical theme that can be adapted and utilized in any situation as the means of creating how we experience it. An event that caused us to feel “betrayed”, for example, becomes a theme for interpreting all other situations of an even remotely similar nature to mean the same thing. As we go through an experience of an intense emotional nature, it also forms an underlying “belief” that becomes an “expectation” as well as a form of unconscious “intention”. Beliefs and expectations are formed as mental filters that act to only notice and abstract in any situation what matches and can be used to create more of the same type of experiences.

As we create more and more of the same type of experiences, we accumulate them as variations of the same idea, and over time use them to build our “mental model” as an symbolic representation for systematically producing more experiences of being betrayed. We then respond (and thereby create) as if we’re once again being betrayed, and as a result turn it into an actual reality. We then form spin-offs of a common theme that specializes it in some way. Betrayal can come in many different ways and can be applied to any number of situations as a “general idea” or theme to consistently produce more experiences of being betrayed. As we produce more of the same type of experiences by using the past to shape the present, we validate them as being real and justify our right to react the way we do. Even when we’re not actually being betrayed we’ll act as if we are, and usually act to betray the other person in some way as a result. We “act” in accordance with our perception, and “bring out” the appropriate qualities in others by first betraying them in some way, causing them to respond with a feeling of being betrayed, fulfilling our expectations.

Our Energetic Blueprint as a Metaphorical Theme

The subtle body is often described as being the blueprint or “etheric template” for “spatially organizing” our body through ongoing processes of regeneration, yet this idea can be difficult to grasp in the most practical sense of working with it in a conscious and deliberate manner as the means of transforming ourselves and our reality. It becomes more of an abstract idea that we contemplate in theory rather than as the primary tool for creating and transforming ourselves to a new state of being. Our etheric-double is our mental paradigm, also called our “subconscious mind” and is what we also use to perceive, structure, and interpret our “outer reality” to form an experience of ourselves “as” a fundamental part of that reality.

This idea exists as a universal principle that can be easily understood by simply observing your own internal processes from a detached and objective perspective of “witnessing” or passively observing how it is you form your perception of reality. By silencing your self-talk as an ongoing habitual commentary of some kind, and concentrating instead on how you’re “feeling” in a situation, natural thought-processes rise up out of those feelings, formulate, and play out as an imaginary scenario, you can observe how it is that you’re always forming an “internal representation” (IR) that you use in place of your actual reality. The IR becomes the means for filtering through all the information available in a situation to select only what matches your preconceived idea about it. You then take the small, selected bits of information and form them into a new configuration that gives you a thematic template for using to create how you experience it. You use the IR as the means of anticipating the actual experience and for making decisions based on it.  You’re always forming an internal experience as a means of anticipating and forming an outer experience of the same nature.

Our internal reality is formed as a holistic model born out of the vibratory “state” of our “mind” and serves as both an inner reflection of our thoughts and a means of expressing them to create an outer experience of the same nature. Our mental state is formed as a vibratory frequency, and like all vibration, has a pattern as a “way of thinking” and a self-assembling principle inherent in it. As we think through habitual patterns as life themes, we construct the reality of our thoughts through our ability to “perceive them” in the outer world. Both our inner and outer reality are formed through the same process as “thought patterns” that act to reflect each other. As we think we perceive the outer world of our thoughts, allowing us to form an experience of them. This is what the term “projection” means. As we project onto others and the world in general, we shape others to be “like us”. Our mind creates reality by “how we think” and imagine the reality of our thoughts as working concepts.

Stargate

Our mind, like the universe and life itself, is holographic in nature and forms “mini-models” of ideas by using the same information contained in the larger model of our mental paradigm. These miniature models are formed as IR of ideas that are used as the means for understanding something and to use as a form of “internal map” for navigating and reorganizing the information contained in the outer reality. The internal map is a representation of the outer idea that views it from a holistic perspective of the bigger picture involved. We use this as a means of coordinating and orientating ourselves within a larger idea of a similar nature.

As you pick an idea to “think about”, and you focus your attention on it, allow yourself to notice that an immediate concept of the idea forms in your imagination that’s formed out of all the accumulated memory you have of that idea. As this internal concept naturally forms out of an idea, simply observe it as it is without needing to change it, while simultaneously realizing that this is the model that you’ve developed over time that you use as the means of comprehending it. Your comprehension of something at any given moment is based on accumulated experiences and memories, whether learned from actual experiences or taught to you as a theory. Everything you know is brought together in that moment as a means of structuring an internal model that you can use for interpreting that idea as a means of creating how you experience it. Everything you “know” (have harmoniously integrated) about that idea as it exists within its present context forms instantly in your mind’s eye as a living concept that you use to perceive it as an outer reality. Every time you apply that idea to a new situation you modify it to form a new variation, and as you reintegrate the variation back into the model that produced it, you evolve the model according to any new attributes acquired. As you evolve an idea (memory) it becomes more complex and inclusive. The idea formed on the inner planes of our imagination becomes the perceptual lens that we “look through” in order to “see” that same idea within our outer world. As we acquire new information and experiences, we consistently synthesize them into our existing model as the means of evolving ourselves to a higher level of understanding.

Internal Representations as Holographic Models

We often fail to realize how we use our mind to create our perception of reality because we don’t understand that it’s a model built out of accumulated experiences as variables that are combined in a complementary way to form a “whole” that’s “metaphorical” in nature. Most have been taught to perceive themselves and their experiences in a literal way. We’re taught to view things as fixed units that exist and operate independent of us instead of realizing that we’re actually the one “forming” our perception as a unique variation of a universal theme based on the inner image we develop and build-up over time. As we integrate more and more variables into our model as the means of upgrading it, we expand our understanding of things and are able to realize new things about the same idea. Our potential for self-expression expands in direct proportion to the internal representations we develop.

While there’s a tendency to think that our subtle-etheric blueprint is only used to construct and give life to our body and personality, and that by working with it we only work to heal and transform our own physical maladies, the fact is it’s the soul that inhabits and forms “experiences” of itself “through the body” and creates both our internal model and external perception. Within the material plane, the outer reality is formed as a projection of the inner soul. The Soul-Mind enters into the body, forming a unique combination of memory (soul, genetic, and ancestral) that develops new internal models that are used to organize the light of the outer plane into a corresponding pattern. The soul itself is archetypal in nature and multidimensional. It comes into every incarnation with the universal memory it has created as “experiences of itself” that are built-up over time as a holographic model that serves to spatially organize light as matter of the outer world into the same metaphorical pattern as the inner world. The soul as a mental construct forms a blueprint as a thematic template for continuing to evolve itself through the creation and acquisition of new types of ideas produced as unique variables. The actual memories produced and acquired in one life are formed into an archetypal construct as a thematic model that’s returned to a universal state as qualities and characteristics that form natural tendencies as a predisposition for continuing to create more of the same type of experiences.

This mental construct composed of subtle energy as a living metaphor that works to evolve itself, is formed out of and by the mind and soul. This is self-evident by the simple fact that if you take a person out of their existing conditions and circumstances and put them in a brand new and totally different environment, they’ll simply create the “same type of experiences” all over again within that environment. Their life theme and inherently developed qualities still “perceive” in the exact same way, and they still employ the same type of behaviors that serve to recreate the same type of relationships. We are always the common denominator in the consistency of our own experiences. This idea is expressed in the saying “no matter where you go, there you are”.

If however, we act to change the inner being that’s organizing and orchestrating the outer world as its complementary opposite, by working with archetypes that possess distinct qualities, and we consistently embody and express those qualities, we act to transform our inner nature through experiences acquired from new ways of being. As we embody new ways of being, it changes how we feel and how we experience our self in relation with everything else. As we create new experiences of ourselves, we begin building up and synthesizing new experiences as a way of evolving our mental paradigm. As we evolve our mental paradigm as the energetic frequency of our mind, we evolve our perception of reality as a correlation. Our mental paradigm is formed out of the synthesis of our values, beliefs, preferences, and memories, and is a self-sustaining and self-perpetuating system that produces reality as an experience of itself, which it uses as the means of growing and evolving itself. So as we work with our subtle body as the means of transforming it, we simultaneously transform our outer reality which is formed as a projection of it.

Our Self-Image

The most basic IR that we form as a means of creating our life is the image we form of ourselves. Many have been taught that the image they form of themselves is a projection of their ego and should be denounced or dispersed somehow because it’s “bad” and comes as a delusion or basic form of misidentification, but this is only a partial truth that can be very misleading and cause us to disconnect from our true inner power in the most basic way. The image we build of ourselves is a product of our own mind and imagination and is what forms the basis for our mental paradigm. All other IR stem out of and act to complement and express our self-image as “holographic fractal patterns” or ideas that work together to construct the outer world as the “stage” necessary for developing ourselves through our own mental projection. Whatever image we form of ourselves forms the basis for self-expression and defines “who we are” and what our life is about. The image we form of ourselves becomes the main character in our life story. It sets the stage necessary for experiencing ourselves through our own idea about ourselves. We project reality as a means of organizing it into a personal theme that allows a certain type of experience, and then we “absorb” our experience and convert it back into memory. Our accumulated memories form the basis for producing consistent experiences that we then use as the means for shaping and fashioning ourselves. What it all really comes down to is whether or not we’re engaging in this process of self-creation unconsciously through purely natural and automatic means, or consciously in a self-aware and deliberate way. Are we locked inside of our own unconscious perception and unaware that we can direct it, or are we consciously assuming the role in being the one who’s writing our life story and directing our own movie? What role and position in the greater picture are we playing with full awareness and in an intentional and precise manner?

This idea is communicated in the saying “as within, so without”, and that the only way to change the outer is by changing the inner. That nothing changes until you do. In order to change your life you have to start by changing your mind about it. This also forms the basis for why “reality” is commonly referred to as an “illusion” in spiritual doctrine and considered a product of our imagination. The outer world is shaped by our perception of it as a “reflection” of our hidden (inner and semi-unconscious) nature. All outer awareness comes as a projection formed out of our inner nature. Our perception of others is really a perception of ourselves in them. We only “see” and respond to in others what exists in us as a correlation. We shape everything else to be of the same nature and likeness as we are. We alter the “appearance” of reality through our perception of it.

In quantum physics this same idea is expressed by the fact that the mind of the individual influences how reality “appears” to them, and that the experimenter influences the outcome of the experiment, because the outcome is being “produced” by the mind perceiving it. This principle is also realized through the fact that light (the stuff of matter) exists simultaneously as both a particle (personal existence) and a wave (universal existence), and “pops in and out of existence”; and the Principle of Entanglement, which basically states that any particles that are “born together” (one comes as the regeneration of the other) or “fused energetically” as the “same state” (married), continue to function “as one” no matter how far apart in space (waveform) they appear to be. Change the properties of one by simply setting up an experiment to “measure it”, and it spontaneously changes the state of the other one. By simply “observing” one particle with an intention in mind, changes its state to match the intention, and the other one that’s polarized with it, no matter how far apart it is in space and time, changes in exactly the same manner (opposite spin) at exactly the same moment. Our inner model is what’s producing our perception of that same idea (thematic pattern) on a larger and more complex scale.

Existing Simultaneously in Multiple Dimensions – The Two Stages and Levels of Spiritual Awakening

The idea of spiritual awakening refers to “self-awareness”, and this awareness can take place on 2 levels simultaneously. Shifts in awareness usually come as fleeting moments where we truly transition into a different state of awareness that has a profound quality to it. As we step into a new way of perceiving the world as a kind of altered reality, it allows us to see things in a way that introduces us to a whole new way of being. This often comes as a deepened form of concentration where we literally exist intimately in a whole new realm that coexists within our ordinary one, where it gives us an entirely different sense of ourselves. In our ordinary reality we exist as a “part within a greater whole”, where we often feel completely detached and estranged from the very reality we’re a fundamental part of. We normally experience ourselves as “being in here” while reality itself is “out there”. We feel as though we have no control or in say-so terms of reality itself. While we may contemplate the idea of existing on multiple dimensions simultaneously, where we form an abstract idea of it as an imaginary concept or theory, once we honestly make the shift into an expanded version of ourselves, we experience ourselves as being in it as a direct and immediate experience.

The first stage of awakening usually comes as becoming more aware of our outer environment, the activities going on at the subtle level, or connecting intimately with the inner nature and essence of things. Where we start realizing our own tendencies and the consequences of our actions. This stage of waking up within our own dream, is like lucid dreaming where our conscious mind becomes active at the same time our subconscious is in the leading role. Normally, as soon as our conscious mind ‘wakes up’ and becomes active, our state of mind shifts into a kind of parallel dimension that seems to encompass or contain the subconscious vision within it. We move gradually from an inner awareness that’s symbolic in nature and exists outside of our perception of ‘time’, to an outer awareness that’s literal and somewhat stationary, where it seems somewhat frozen in time.

Imagination

The initial stages of awakening come when we begin learning how to employ both aspects of our mind at the same time, where they form reality as a continuum. We start to become aware of our own subconscious mind and come into direct contact with our feelings and our inner nature formed out of our memories, which all seem to be woven together to form a cohesive construct as a particular type of experience. We not only begin exercising our ability to self-reflect and move between two dimensions simultaneously as a deeper form of realization, but we also start seeing into the subtle realm playing out all around us at the unconscious level. We begin tuning into (looking beyond physical appearance) the inner essence of everything around us and we get an immediate sense of their character and what’s motivating their actions. We form a heightened awareness around how it is that we’re being stimulated by whatever and whomever is around us or interacting with us in some way, whether actually or energetically.

As we’re being stimulated by an outside force of some kind, the same quality being expressed is stimulated and arises within us in response to it, giving us direct knowledge of it as an internal experience. If we allow these qualities to spontaneously arise inside of us without distorting, ignoring, or manipulating them through our own thoughts, we can tune into a whole new level of reality playing out within this one at the subtle level that lies just below our ordinary awareness. Once we begin developing this ability, we not only come into direct contact with the subconscious mind, as the ‘group mind’ of the material world, but also the realization that our conscious mind of outer awareness is always acting to view and experience the ‘projection’ being produced by our own subconscious. Our subconscious, which is an aspect of the group mind as our outer reality, is the part of our mind that’s creating our physical reality as a mental construct, and our conscious mind, which forms our outer awareness is what witnesses our own creation and has its ‘being’ within it.

We use one part of us to produce our reality and another part of us to experience our self through that reality as an integral part of it. Once we start forming this level of awareness, we have the key to our own healing as bringing the unconscious aspects of ourselves that we’ve judged and repressed into awareness through our outer reality, where we can consciously integrate them using our rational mind in a congruent manner. Through psychological healing we bring both aspects of our material mind into harmony as being a ‘continuation’ of each other as a single whole or unified field. We understand the different functions each part of our mind performs in creating a greater whole, and we keep them fully active within our awareness as our normal state of being. This new level of ‘self-awareness’ that brings new knowledge of who we really are is life-altering and brings a form of thoughtfulness as self-contemplation. We start being able to naturally realize the consequences we produce not only through what we say and do, but also begin realizing the power of our own thoughts in shaping our reality through the Law of Cause and Effect.

The Second Stage of Awakening – “Transformation”

Once we begin developing the ability to keep both aspects of our material mind (subconscious and self-conscious) active at the same time in terms of our awareness, where intuition blends with our intellect and deepens how we’re experiencing things, we begin moving into the second stage of awakening. This stage comes as a form of ‘rebirth’ into a whole new level of being. To understand this transformation of conscious awareness, we must form a working concept of the nature of planes, dimensions, and realms of being. These mental levels are commonly portrayed in two basic ways, one as a hierarchical structure, where a smaller field exists harmoniously within a greater field of the same nature, or energetic sheaths as layers, called ‘bodies’, that all function as different aspects of a greater whole. Both models convey the idea of one level of reality being fully contained within and as a fundamental part of a greater level of reality. These levels or layered bodies not only represent different levels of consciousness as states of mind, but also different levels of the Soul that provide different experiences of itself.

While we tend to talk in abstract terms about vibration, frequency, and energy, we must begin defining these terms as a particular type of self-awareness that bring entirely new ways of experiencing ourselves. As we’re able to start awakening within our own reality by merging our two minds into a single state where they’re both active at the same time, and we start gaining a steady realization that what we perceive as an outer reality that appears to be apart from us is being produced by our own subconscious, we awaken within our own dream, so to speak. This awareness lays the foundation for a natural shift into an even higher level, where we literally start shifting into a higher or greater plane where we not only “see” and conceptualize reality as a whole, but where we actually experience our ‘self’ as the entire “field of reality”. We move as a unified field of consciousness and the sense of separation disappears completely. We not only stay “awake in the present moment”, where we pay attention to what’s happening around us, but we have a strange new sense of being reality itself. Its as though when we move, the entire field of reality moves with us as an extension of ourselves. We gain a direct awareness of reality being formed in a constant way as a reflection of our own thoughts about it. As we think and form mental pictures of our thoughts, we create them as a corresponding reality and experience our self “as” them.

The Illusion of Time and Space

Along with this heightened awareness comes a new sense of “time and space”. We’re no longer lost in the moment and move through an extended series of events that are all correlated through a dynamic series of unconscious states, where we remain disconnected and unaware of how it is we’re creating through a constant process of cause and effect, but instead remain aware in a constant and extended fashion. As we act, we form a direct vision and immediate awareness of what we’re causing through our actions. It’s no longer ‘time-related’ or mysterious. When the effect we create comes at a later time, we still recognize it as a natural response to our own actions. We don’t lose an awareness of what it is we’re causing no matter how long it takes to play out. Intuition becomes our main form of perception and we begin seeing everything as a reflection of ourselves.

From this level of awareness, we begin comprehending the universal laws, not as an intellectual concept, but as the very nature of our experience. We have a direct awareness that the thoughts we form as mental pictures (light construct within the mind) and infused with the sensation of our life-force, causes them to vibrate with life, both on the inner and outer planes at the same moment. Vibration has both a pattern of the thought inherent in it and a self-organizing mechanism and operates simultaneously between parallel planes through ‘polarity’. The vibration as a frequency, formed by all our thoughts as a theme on the inner planes of our paradigm, acts to vibrate the outer/lower plane causing it to take the same shape as a reflection of our thoughts. Our thoughts are causal in nature and create the outer world and lower plane as a corresponding effect. Our inner, upper world of imaginary thought is similar to the world of our nightly dreams in the sense that they serve as a kind of metaphorical representation that’s used as a theme (greater pattern) for shaping the outer reality to be of the same idea on a larger scale. Our thoughts are a form of ‘archetype’ that can be applied to any number of conditions and circumstances, and through a process of adaptation, modified to produce a new variation as a ‘type’ of experience. Our thoughts don’t create as an exact outer formation of the same imaginary image, but as a “corresponding idea” that brings the same “type of experience”. The physical formation is only significant in terms of how it sets the stage for producing a particular kind of experience.

The Mental Sphere of Reality Viewed from a Higher Plane of Awareness

What we perceive as the sphere (reality) around us is actually our own mind on a higher level and is always being organized with our vitalized thoughts and emotions, which keep us tuned to our soul’s frequency. The space around us is impressed with our soul’s signature as the frequency formed by our mental paradigm that reflects back to us the reality of our thoughts. It’s our own creation that we project as a means of experiencing ourselves. This field of light around us is magnetic and acts to absorb and form a mental impression of our thoughts as a permanent record of them. This field of organized information is the intrinsic nature of our own mind on a higher and all-inclusive plane that we perceive through our inner nature. Our mind (soul) acts on this field to organize it into a mental construct as a kind of etheric blueprint for creating our reality as the means of experiencing ourselves through our own creation as a story we tell about ourselves. The same principles operate on all levels and scales of existence through a chain of association that comes as a series of correspondences that uses an invisible idea to form a material reality. As we awaken within our material reality and realize that it’s all being constructed and projected by our subconscious, and that our conscious awareness is the part of us that perceives and witnesses our own mental creation, we also realize that the entire lower plane is being organized and animated by “us” on a higher plane as the means of experiencing ourselves through our own creation.

Reality as its experienced from a higher level comes as more of what we can think of as a ‘holomovement’. Not as a hologram of a single image or idea, but as an entire reality that’s used to form that idea. As we think, we form the reality of our thoughts as a means of previewing and experiencing them. We’re not our body, our body is a fundamental part of our own creation and is what allows us to enter into our own projection as a natural part of it. What we refer to as our “self” is our Soul, which exists on higher planes or outside of our material existence as our “mind”, or the sphere of organized information in which all reality exists. We are reality itself as both the part and the whole, the inner and the outer, the upper and the lower. These different aspects of ourselves exist simultaneously as a single reality where each aspect plays a particular role in playing it out as the means of coming to “know ourselves” through our own mental creation. We’re both the creator of our reality and the one experiencing it as a way of knowing our self. It’s only our perception of being separate that causes us to get lost in the illusion of our own making.

Once we awaken and begin living out of the awareness that we’re creating our reality and our self through our own thoughts, we can no longer remain asleep and we have to begin working to develop greater mental skills in creating. Instruction for developing these mental skills is given to us as universal laws, which are the laws of the mind and the means through which we create in a conscious and responsible way. Once we wake up and become aware that we are constantly creating our reality through our thoughts, we’re also met with a new kind of responsibility for our own creation. We can no longer produce and play a part in dysfunctional situations while claiming to be a victim and not knowing what we’re doing. This stage of development comes as a spiritual awakening where we step into our higher-self, and begin laying the foundation necessary for developing mastery over our own mind and ability to regulate our own actions. Once we begin creating with a deeper sense of self-awareness, we also become fully responsible for what we create and have the key for determining our own destiny. Not in terms of the material world of unconscious delusions, but as our soul in charge of its own evolutionary process to higher and more conscious levels of being.

Moral Strength – The Power of Being Willfully Directed

Strength is a virtue that’s employed as the means for subduing and bringing your lower, instinctual nature under your control so it can be utilized as a vehicle for higher forms of self-expression. It’s the moral strength and discipline you exercise by using your “will” to control your own emotions, passions, impulses, and unruly desires. It’s only by learning how to manage your own internal processes that you quit allowing yourself to be controlled and determined by others through reactive states. Strength is developed by exercising your ability to not only control your own reactions to everyone and everything else, but also through your ability to use your reactions as a means of examining your own inner nature that’s always operating just below the level of awareness as an unconscious state, and instead remain in full control of yourself.

Strength, like any idea and character trait, has multiple meanings and various applications, yet they all ultimately mean the same thing. Its being able to stand calmly amid controversy and strong emotions being expressed and willfully projected towards you without allowing them to penetrate you and take hold where you begin internalizing and expressing the same emotion. It’s developing a moral code of conduct based on an acute understanding of universal laws where you can clearly see what’s happening in any situation in terms of the energy being willfully directed in a primarily unconscious manner as the means of creating. You learn how to use your will to deflect the emotions and attitude being projected towards you and not allowing them to enter your body and mind where you go unconscious and begin reacting. Anytime you’re reacting, you’re being controlled by whatever it is that you’re reacting to by becoming “like it” in nature.

Every action causes an equal or greater reaction, and the reaction becomes the causal force for intensifying, multiplying, and increasing the shared emotion. Any action we take is creative in nature, and draws direct consequences based on what it causes and sets into motion. Anytime we let another person’s behavior “get to us”, and we take on the same attitude and demeanor, we shift and become “like them” in nature. Our entire mental state changes to match theirs and we not only express the same emotions, but we develop the same character traits. This is how our character is developed in a primarily unconscious manner. The energy being projected towards us or that’s actively being expressed around and near us acts to “stimulate” us, changing our state to match theirs, “bringing out in us” the same qualities and characteristics, where we use them to express ourselves and create experiences of “being that way”. As we create our own experiences based on how we’re being and acting, we “sense ourselves” through those experiences and associate with them as a result. When we’re consistently stimulated by the same type of emotion bringing out in us their correlating characteristics, we produce more and more of the same type of experiences of ourselves, and we accumulate the memory that results, which builds up over time, making those characteristics dominant in us. Whatever we actively express over time, we identify with and use to develop our character.

Emotions, Characteristics, and Dynamics

What you want to allow yourself to notice through self-observation of your own internal processes, is that “emotions” are natural forces that operate as “instinct” on the material plane of the subconscious mind. Emotion is an electrical charge that’s freely transmitted through the atmosphere by living beings and is felt internally as a particular type of sensation that’s designed to activate and bring to the forefront the characteristics necessary to respond in an automatic and appropriate way. As we act to unconsciously receive an emotional force, it immediately alters our “state”, both mentally and physically, and causes us to behave in ways that don’t require a thought process or decision. This is what instinct is. It’s an automated form of consciousness that operates through the unconscious mind to produce correlated behaviors of a group or by being of the same consciousness (energetic state) as your environment. It operates to produce the mindset equivalent to the emotion where we react in a spontaneous way without being directly aware of what we’re doing.

While this process is designed to work through the subconscious, which is the instinctual mind shared by all of Nature, as humans, we are bestowed with a conscious mind capable of thinking, analyzing, reasoning, discriminating, and making our own decisions about what to do and how to respond to whatever situation we find ourselves in. When emotion is freely transmitted and received, and we take them on without a direct awareness of what’s happening, it not only compels an instant reaction designed only for that moment in time, but it’s harbored long afterwards, where we nurture and maintain them by continuing to think about them and we build whole imaginary realities out of them that “seem real”. Whatever we imagine as an internal reality that’s emotionally charged, acts to regulate our state of mind out of which we create in a corresponding manner.

Higher self

Animals don’t have the conscious aspect of the mind and don’t have the ability to think in terms of pictures that construct whole inner realities that don’t really exist, only humans have this ability. With animals, once the danger or threat is no longer present, they immediately discharge and release the emotion and go back to their normal state and activity, whereas humans don’t seem to know to release the emotion and continue to think about it long afterwards keeping it alive inside of them as a possible reality that they continue to live out of as if its still present and real. They don’t act to multiply and increase it by internally generating it as a natural response to their own thoughts, sustaining and transmitting it to others and their environment. We use the emotion as the basis for creating our reality and for developing our character by way of that reality as a correlation.

Through self-observation you can easily realize how these invisible forces operate through the atmosphere around you. Many people live consumed with emotions and are always creating their reality out of the emotional states they maintain consistently, while shaping their character from a predominately unconscious state as a “delusion”. Through close examination of how your own mind-body system works to generate your reality, you can begin forming an awareness around it. This is important to do, because we can only work with what we’re aware of and “understand” in the practice sense. Understanding is necessary in order to consciously direct unconscious processes. Allow yourself to recognize that there are two basic ways emotions operate within us, and how emotion is always married to thought.

Brain waves

Sit quietly, calm your mind through rhythmic breathing, subdue and set to the side all the impulsive, anxious, and habitual thoughts that run automatically, and form a sense of deepened inner awareness. Once you’ve formed a clear state of mind, choose something to focus on. As you focus your attention on it allow your thoughts about it to form naturally. As you begin thinking about it notice that you steadily develop it into a picture, concept, or scenario in your mind by shaping it with “sensory details”. The more detailed you make it, the more vivid and alive it becomes, and you begin feeling the sensations of it throughout your body (torso). The more sensationalized it becomes the more you start forming an emotional response to it. An emotion begins culminating in response to it, and it comes alive with activity and animated with the behavior natural to the idea. The emotion becomes the life-force that motivates the behaviors and activities it takes on as it starts playing out in your mind as a possible experience of “reality”. The thought-form created not only produces a correlating emotion that’s ideally suited for expressing it, but also forms natural behaviors that are formed out of specific characteristics. As these two combine into a single idea, they come alive and form into a reality as a possibility for experiencing as an outer reality of the same kind and type.

Through this process, initiated by a decision in what to focus on and think about, we “act on ourselves” to activate certain parts of our character and use them to form our natural behaviors and how we’re “being”, and those qualities and characteristics are what express to produce an equivalent “experience” of our “self” as our own creation. As we think we’re constantly acting on ourselves to create the outer reality of our thoughts as a way of experiencing them. As we form ideas into pictures while imbuing them with sensation, we’re literally giving our subconscious a directive as a thematic pattern for using to organize and construct an equivalent outer reality of the same kind as a means of producing our own experiences. As we mentally construct and call forth our own experiences, we relate and associate with them, and build our “identity” out of them as a result.

Reverse the process – now let’s do the same process of self-observation in the reverse role where we act to receive the emotions being expressed by others. This may be difficult to do at first while in a live situation, due to the fact that it usually happens in an automatic fashion and renders us temporarily unconscious, but we can use a memory to achieve the same objective. Once we’re able to form a clear understanding of how this “automated process” works, we can begin using it in live situations as a means of disciplining ourselves and exercising self-control. Once we can refrain from going into a reaction, we can use it as a means of introspection and begin forming a heightened sense of self-awareness.

Again, sit quietly, calm your mind and clear your thoughts by pushing them to the background, and pick a memory of an event where a fairly intense emotional exchange occurred. Focus on how it began, noticing what state you were in before being triggered, and then the behavior displayed by the other person that acted to produce a pronounced stimulus in your body. As you’re being stimulated by it, notice where in your body it’s the strongest, and how it makes you feel as a result. Notice that it acts to instantly change your entire state of mind and physiology. As it “enters you”, notice that as it takes hold it becomes prominent and causes you to go semi-unconscious where you become lost in the reality of the feeling and can’t seem to direct your own thoughts. As it consumes you, notice that you immediately associate it to an existing memory that made you feel the same way, and you use that memory to interpret the present to be about the same thing as the past, and you not only go into a whole story about what’s happening, but also behave in the same way you did in the past. As you act in an automatic way, you create the same type of experience, and set the same idea in motion. When this happens, you forfeit your conscious mind and reside almost completely in your unconscious mind of instinct, where the outside stimulus is controlling and directing your activities and what kind of reality you create in your imagination.

In both of these processes, allow yourself to notice that what you think about and the emotions that are equivalent to those thoughts act together to activate and bring out qualities and characteristics in you that form the behaviors that result from them. As you think and feel, you stimulate yourself bringing forth certain aspects of your character and use them as the means of creating your experiences. As you form your own experiences, notice how it is that  you shape yourself by way of those experiences. We develop ourselves by consistently employing certain parts of our character as qualities that form consistent type of experiences and natural behaviors. Whatever characteristics we utilize in each situation are developed through the dynamic that ensues out of them. Certain qualities play out in certain dynamics as behavioral patterns that not only strengthen those traits, but also condition us to the dynamics as a certain way of being that acts naturally to express as a correlated myth or story. We’re always acting on ourselves to create ourselves through how we tell a particular type of story by becoming the main character and author of that story. Allow yourself to notice that there’s always “one part of you” talking to “another part of you” and telling a story by how you explain, describe, or justify things.

Passion and Desire

This same idea plays out through our passions and desires, which come as emotions that stimulate our primal, instinctual nature, producing a strong desire as a magnetic force. Our passion comes as a strong emotion or magnetic feeling regarding something that makes it very compelling and attractive. Desire comes as “wanting”, wishing, longing, and craving. These are the primal instincts that form the basis for “temptation”, and often pose our conscious willful mind in direct opposition with our subconscious emotional mind. In this situation, where complementary aspects of ourselves become adversaries, emotion usually wins, because of their motive power in producing a strong physiological effect. On the lower material plane and in relation to our animal body, emotion is equivalent to “will” on the higher planes of the conscious and creative mind. When we let our emotions run us and we make all our decisions out of them, we utilize our higher will to fulfill physical desires and physical pleasures of some kind, and create ourselves out of our instinctual, primal nature, fashioning ourselves to be equivalent to animals. This doesn’t mean that our lower nature is bad or something we should shun and reject, but rather a part of ourselves that we need to subdue, tame, and bring under the presidency of our higher will so it can be used as a vehicle for consciously creating in the physical world.

By choosing and intentionally using our rational, reasoning mind as the basis for directing all our actions, we can bring our emotional nature under the control of our higher will, where it can be utilized to enhance our ability to express ourselves, and as a means of imposing a direct influence over others and the situation at hand. But to do this we have to bring our own emotions under control by learning how to deflect the ones being transmitted by others instead of absorbing them, while using thought in an intentional way to generate desired emotions. To do this, we not only form a working concept of how emotions as natural forces are transmitted and received, but also by using a visualization process to shield ourselves and deflect them instead. All energy can be directed and utilized through mental means. Mental operations are conducted using the creative faculty of the imagination to form internal (invisible) concepts that function and operate in specific ways. In the same way emotion as energy is invisible and can’t be seen, while producing a pronounced physical effect that sets a whole process in motion, a shield can be produced on the invisible realm of thought that can work to intentionally direct the flow of energy.

We can do this by first realizing that we all have an invisible field of energy that surrounds, permeates, and envelops our body, that’s like an egg or spherical shape. Some call this the aura which appears on the inner planes as a cloud-like essence vitalized with colors, which is being emanated by the “mind”. The mind itself is an invisible field of energy that can be pictured as a glass sphere that we look through as a means of shaping our outer world. We can visualize this etheric egg shaped field as being made of a crystalline substance, similar to glass, where any energy directed onto it from an outside source, instead of penetrating and blending into it, is reflected off the surface like a mirror and sent back to the person projecting it.

What we call “light” is basically invisible and only becomes illuminated when reflected off the surface of a material substance of some kind. Colors are contained within the clear light as its hidden, inner nature, and become fragmented when they come into contact with a material (solid) object, where some of the qualities (frequencies) are absorbed and integrated as the inner state of the object, while others are reflected into the space around it, forming it’s “outer appearance”. Whatever color an object appears as is formed by the rays its reflecting off the surface, which are complementary to the ones absorbed and integrated to form the objects inner nature as its energetic state. This is a metaphor for the fact that whatever energy we act to unknowingly absorb, we integrate into our inner nature, allowing it to determine our state of being to match the frequency, and whatever we reflect forms how we appear to others as a mirror image of themselves. Whatever constitutes our inner nature determines what we attract outwardly as our complementary opposite. This will become easier to understand through practice where you’ll come to realize that when you maintain a state of inner calm around someone expressing strong emotions, you act to neutralize them, allowing the person to realize them as their own and see them in a different light as a result.

Picture the energy field of your mind-aura as a solid outer shield that’s crystallized glass, while telling yourself (setting the intention) that any energy being projected by others can’t penetrate your sphere, and instead spreads out on the surface, much like a movie being projected onto a screen, where it doesn’t affect you, but you can still watch the movie its impregnated with as it plays out in a distant and neutral fashion. This allows you to understand what the person is feeling without combining with them mentally and reshaping them on the inner planes of your mind to be “like you”. As you act to reflect their own story back to them in a neutral fashion, they get to see it in a different way, and gain new insights as a result. Practice doing this as a mental concept and visualization until it becomes intuitive, where you do it naturally. If you allow their emotional energy to penetrate you, where you feel it as a stimulation in your body, become aware of it, and mentally push it back out until its resides completely outside of your energy field, and then reseal it, telling yourself it can no longer penetrate it, and refocus your attention on managing your internal state returning it to a peaceful calm.

Subduing Your own Lower Nature

Subduing your lower nature and bringing it under the command of your conscious mind is accomplished by forming a practical understanding of the universal laws of the mind that forms an awareness of what you’re actually doing when impulses naturally occur. When you remain unaware of what’s happening energetically between you and what’s around you, you willingly engage in a participatory manner with whatever activities and behaviors are being openly displayed by others. Whatever we blend with mentally, emotionally, or physically, we become like in nature. Our morality is formed through the activities of our mind in terms of how it is we present ideas to ourselves internally. When we give into our primal urges and emotional reactions, we allow our lower nature to take control of our thoughts and higher will, and we create ourselves to be like others and of an animal nature. We create from an unconscious or semi-unconscious state without being aware of the consequences that result from it.

Once we’re able to understand what’s happening in terms of the natural interaction that takes place between our thoughts and emotions as our conscious and subconscious mind, and we’re able to use our conscious thoughts to direct and utilize our emotions as a means of expressing ourselves, we’re able to use our physical body as an instrument for creating in a willful and self-aware manner. When we cultivate the ability to not be affected by other people’s emotions and instead learn how to internally generate them as the motivating force that gives life to our thoughts, we can begin creating ourselves from a primarily conscious state and in a much more intentional and precise manner. Moral strength comes as our ability to discipline ourselves in emotionally intense situations or where we’re tempted somehow with our own weaknesses to give in and compromise our own integrity. We exercise it in remaining calm and focused, where we can make conscious decisions through a realization of the consequences they’ll render and then initiate and direct the activities that will produce the reality of our decisions.
