Developing Clairvoyance – “Seeing the Spiritual World”

I often get asked if clairvoyance or intuition are 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 through a form of ridicule of some kind. What we refer to as the “spiritual” world or plane of existence is primarily invisible to the material senses, and is filled with beings and forms as invisible natural forces of some kind. These forms differ in many ways, but the two main ones are whether 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 it exists as real for us internally and is what makes up our experience of reality.

Astral Plane and the World of Formation

Because our mind, which is an invisible field of information and natural forces also, is an inherent part of the spiritual realm, our own feelings and thoughts can influence these forms and cause them to morph and fluctuate. This plane of 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 to a well-formed idea as a personalization of that idea. Forms that characteristically change with our every thought or feeling are produced by the mineral elements and are human made objects. Those formed by the plant element change less easily in response to our thoughts and feelings, and animals, which have a personality of their own, 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 form. These mental impressions while never (hardly ever) solid or opaque, like the forms of the physical, are still quite distinct as a “feeling about something” that forms a chain of association as the qualities that permeate it and the forms that express those qualities in symbolic terms of the physical plane actually being the symbolic representation of concentrated energy from 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 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 response to them.

These forms are full of life and movement and their mobility is largely due to the influence of our own thoughts and feelings, and to other causes 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 instead to influence us. Others are always interacting with us in feelings and thoughts that form “in us” as a natural response to the feeling sensations we’re always receiving and the activity they induce at the subconscious level, and so we often have no direct awareness of the influence our thoughts 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” created 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. 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. Other forms have only a negligible effect, if any, depending on what causes 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, which can be thought of as natural forces or entities that have a singular nature and express only as the quality of that emotion, which produces a whole living process as a chain of association that spawns whatever we focus on, what memory we access, what we think about, how we feel, and what type of experience we act to create by way of it that produces a reality for us on the inner planes. 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 exists in its universal form as containing endless potential for expression, that when drawn into a 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.

Example – anger, while expressed differently by each individual who experiences it, 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 in a somewhat unique way while maintaining the basic characteristics assigned to anger, such as outbursts, yelling, criticizing, belittling, intimidating, attacking, aggression, hostility, or in other cases, frustration, overwhelm, severe anxiety, crying, or a temper tantrum of sorts. 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 sense around a person, regardless of what their physical appearance, is experienced as these same qualities. 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. 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 illusory replication of the physical world, but reveals itself in forms that are quite different. Qualities that permeate a physical form are seen as the images associated to those qualities, and the attributes of the forms “match” the quality of consciousness as behaviors or processes 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”, is because certain qualities that produce specific behaviors in what we could think of as the instinctual field of the collective unconscious that governs all of life on the planet earth, and expresses through different species of animals as the form associated with those behaviors as classifications 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. Likewise, 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 attract you to them. 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.

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 memory, except it doesn’t refer to the past imagined experience, but rather to the present soul and 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 experiences, and simply observe them with a neutral and unbiased mind, they form the same type of mental impressions as personal memory and scenarios or moving images that form mental impressions in the imagination, that lack meaning (in the personal sense), while existing purely by reasons that exist 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, that’s alive within the present situation, rather than being resurrected from the past and reused to create the present as an illusion. The mental impressions formed 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 appear nothing like the physical body they inhabit and act to animate through thought processes that produce behaviors as their equivalent. 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

Though in the reverse sense, a feeling we get in the spiritual sense forms a very distinct mental image as a reality that expresses in the physical as the same form associated to the feeling. In reality, the physical is the expression as “form” of the spiritual; the spiritual is not symbolic of the physical. We have to reverse our way of thinking. 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 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 realize fully 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 basic 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 as a result. 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 which reforms it.

The feeling that we get that’s 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, we can see the nature of the energies as the forms their vibration creates, which are the expression of the “qualities of consciousness” birthing them as realities in the astral plane of the imagination. All vibration has patterns inherent in it along with a self-organizing mechanism that shapes essence into forms in the faculty of the imagination.

The imagination is the faculty of the mind that shapes astral light as programmed essence into forms as the expression of the vibratory frequency they’re programmed with. The vibration as movement 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 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

So 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, that collapses around “one” potential as a possibility that’s used to form a single, individual personalized reality. That reality then forms into a memory, which draws it back up the planes and returns it to its universal state as an archetype or pattern as an idea that’s represented by a basic form that can be used to create numerous more experiences through using the memory as a general idea or meaning that becomes a template for creating more experiences of the same nature, shaped by the meaning it has that evolves it through a series of modifications by how it’s adapted to fit a new set of circumstances or situation.

This memory (whether universal or personal – because one is used to create the other) when used repeatedly, creates a field of energy (consciousness) as an electromagnetic field that habituates it, making it a main theme for creating our life story by solidifying it as a thought-form, which continues to exist in the soul-astral plane of mass consciousness, where it becomes a form of substitute for an original thematic idea as an archetype, and can be tuned into, accessed, and received by other minds, who also use it to create in a similar fashion as a basic idea. 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.

The world of thought-forms as a form of collection or accumulation of archetypes evolved by humans through application and personalization, also refer to a mass consciousness or the “instinctual field” of the collective unconscious that produce natural behaviors that are conceived of unconsciously, is also referred to as the “Book of Life” where every action (as a new vibration) is “recorded” (impressed) in the Akashic Field. These terms are all referring to the same idea, which is also the basis for the modern scientific discovery of morphogenic fields and torsion fields that populates the field of human instinct and subtle energy as the ghost-like, invisible energy that emanates and produces distinct physical properties and behaviors.

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 but without direct awareness that exist as thought-forms 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 imagined representations that we form our personal memories out of. These universal ideas that propagate 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.

Mastering your Will to Create and Transform

Many people don’t fully understand what we mean when we use the term “will”, and as a result they don’t know how to use it in a deliberate and powerful way to create. Will is always associated to choice, because anytime we’re actually using our will , it’s to move out of conditioning and automatic, habitual tendencies that we do naturally, and create in a new and more individual way instead. When we’re trained to belief systems and certain mind-sets as “group consciousness” of some form, we’re actually lending our will to others and allowing them to shape and determine us as a result. Our will isn’t our ability to “resist” things or not give in to passions, pleasure, desires, or cravings of some kind through an act of sheer strength and willpower, but rather our ability to decide on what we want to be and do, and use our imagination to form the correct “internal representation” (IR) of ideas that either make them repulsive and disgusting, or desirable and attractive.

While we tend to think that things have power over us in the same sense that they’re dictating our experience and how we respond as a result, the fact is that we shape the outer world into an internal representation (IR) that we then use in place of the actual thing or activity as a way of experiencing it. As we think about something we’re associating other ideas with it, and using our “sensory system” to embellish it with sensory qualities that invoke emotional states. An idea that’s turned into an internal reality that serves to elicit strong emotions in response to it are how we’re using our will all the time to direct our own behavior and what we participate in by desiring and becoming one with it; as well as what we don’t because we find it unappealing for some reason. If we’ve made a decision to stop doing something, and we constantly struggle to resist it and create an experience of suffering because we’re abstaining from it, it’s because we haven’t learned how to use our higher mind to direct ourselves, and we’re using it incorrectly as a result.

The body, which is what we also refer to as the subconscious mind, because it inhabits and operates it, is operated by memory, and forms all of our natural behaviors as repetitive patterns and daily rituals and tendencies. The subconscious “thinks” in pictures and is experiential in nature. This means we communicate with it and act to program it with a form of virtual memory by imagining ideas as an experience of them. Its primary motive is “self-preservation”, so all of its impulses as feeling emotional states are geared towards maintaining the status quo and habits engaged in on a routine basis. It’s primarily instinctual in nature and motivated by pleasure or pain. It moves deeper into and seeks out whatever it deems pleasurable, and moves away from or avoids whatever it deems painful. It forms, firmly establishes and faithfully maintains habits and addictions, and is nearly always craving and wanting something. All of its needs are physical and material in nature and it works and is driven by emotions, making it impulsive and urge oriented. When it doesn’t get what it “needs and desires” it causes pain and suffering through emotions and physical withdrawals, which is experienced as a form of death (no longer able to sustain itself through that activity).

The subconscious mind is the creative aspect of the mind that’s capable of shaping and producing material realities, both inwardly and outwardly. It does this by turning a feeling or idea into a reality in the faculty of the imagination. Being memory oriented, it acts to create our memories from actual experiences, replaying them as a means of continuing to create by way of them, and as the means of being fed an idea as a form of “seeded thought” that it then fashions into a reality as a form of virtual memory. The imagined idea as an original creation is formed and appears in the imagination in exactly the same way as an actual memory does. This virtual memory as an internal representation of an idea operates in exactly the same way as an actual memory creating a kind of blueprint or template as an internal experience that forms the basis for the correlating external experiences of the same kind.

This “virtual memory” is an image, scenario, or movie-like idea that’s translucent (like a reflection on glass) in nature (can be seen fully while looking at something else), and becomes our perceptual lens as a filtering mechanism that reorganizes the elements of our outer reality to match the theme and emotions of the inner one. The IR becomes a kind of template or map for structuring and navigating the outer experience. Because of this tendency to “perceive out of memory and IR’s”, we never directly see or experience things as they actually are (a part from us), but rather as we “remake them” through our perception of them. This perception based on or produced by an IR or memory, works through the same principles as value judgments and either makes something appear desirable, likeable, and pleasurable, or undesirable, despicable and unappealing, or disgusting somehow.

When we decide and say we’re no longer going to do something, but we continue to form it in our mind as pleasurable and desirable, we struggle to resist it and continue to want it. We make giving it up a painful experience and the longing for it never goes away, so we’re always “tempted” by it. If instead, realizing how the mind works, we change the IR we’re forming into something that’s disgusting, repulsive, and painful, then we have no trouble resisting it, and thoughts of it eventually go away altogether. When we no longer think about it, it’s no longer a part of us and it exercises no control over us. This is the accurate use of the will – to make a decision to take control of what’s normally and unconscious process, and inject instead the idea we want to create in its place – then change the IR of what we’re stopping or looking to transform, while embellishing and enhancing the IR of the new idea we’re replacing it with.

Internal Representations, like reality itself are formed through sensory attributes, qualities, and characteristics that either makes it up-close, in vivid color and compelling, or far-away, black and white and neutral. If we make something up-close, immediate, full Technicolor, and create it as a full sensory experience of what you’re seeing, hearing, feeling, touching, smelling or tasting, and what you’re telling yourself about the experience that gives it meaning, and you create it with very positive emotions that make it pleasurable and beautiful, you create a strong desire for it. This gives your subconscious a very compelling “memory” that it steadily move towards and into, while seeking it out and connecting with that same idea in your immediate outer environment. If you then neutralize the current idea that you want to eliminate by turning it to black and white, pushing it out far into the distance so it seems far away, and assign negative sensory qualities and emotions to it, the subconscious, being given a more desirable alternative forgets about it, moves away from or avoids the old, eventually disconnecting from it all together outwardly, and moves instead into the fulfillment of the new and pleasurable idea.

The will is the active component of the conscious mind that can make new decisions that are not a part of its formative conditioning and habitual in nature, and can rule out one idea while replacing it with another. It impregnates the subconscious imagination with the seed as a unique idea that is then grown and formed into maturity in the imagination and manifests as an experience that bridges the inner with the outer, both of which are the creation of the subconscious mind as its offspring. The subconscious mind, when not being fed by its own personal will as an intentional idea for creating, absorbs instead the will of others as mental and emotional impressions or suggestions going on around it that it uses to generate thoughts in the imagination, and not only creates the individual (mind and body) according to those thoughts, but also creates the outer experience of those thoughts as its reality.

Anytime we passively take in an idea from outside of us (thoughts of another), and we form them into IR’s as a virtual reality, and make them our own by continuing to think about them, we’re choosing (unconsciously) to manifest and give life to the will of others through us. We’re literally lending our will to them, allowing them to determine us and the reality we experience as the perceptual lens we look through. The conscious, willful mind, is what’s traditionally called the “gate-keeper”, and is the aspect of the self that decides what’s allowed into the subconscious and what’s not. It analyzes, intuits, and evaluates the information to decide whether it’s true or not, valuable in some way, or would be beneficial as a means of upgrading the mental paradigm by incorporating it. It’s the “editor” that filters information through reasoning. It’s the part of our selves that’s always actively choosing even when we’re unaware (no choice is a choice) and decides what stays and what goes. It’s the aspect of the mind that has the ability to intentionally self-create through the active transformation of old ideas into new ones.

Imagination – “As Opposed to Creative Visualization”

eye
The tendency to represent the idea of “imagining something” as “visualizing it”, can make the idea seem fairly confusing. Visualizing indicates forming inner images, pictures and scenes as movies that play out in the mind as a form of anticipated or wished for experience. Then, because its portrayed this way, many get confused as to “how to” visualize, what it means exactly, and believe that it means to see fully detailed, colored images and scenes that play out with precision and detail, and while it certainly can be this way, especially for a well developed imagination, for most people it’s usually much more impressionistic. Most visualization resembles the type of image we see as a reflection in glass or water, or a reflection in a dark, shiny surface where it’s more shadow-like and formed, yet not particularly detailed. This resembles what is referred to as “thought-forms” that exist in the astral field of the mind as shadowy images that we form through thinking about or dwelling on ideas, or recalling a memory of some kind.

 
The imagination however, is a faculty of the mind that forms a full sensory experience that while it’s main component is visual images and impressionistic shapes, it also focuses heavily on hearing and sounds, feelings as intuitive and as touching the surface of material reality, any forms of smells that would be inherent in the experience, and taste whenever appropriate, as well as the internal dialogue as thoughts that we naturally have while engaging in any type of experience and the emotions the experience elicits. Our inner dialogue is what we are telling ourselves ‘about’ the experience that makes it mean something. The imagination takes an inspired idea as unformed, and shapes it into a full 3-D sensory reality that is realistic and believable, and therefore possible. The true use of the imagination however, places the greatest emphasis on “feelings” that we have as a result of the inner experience we are having. The feeling is the full-body intuitive sensation that blends the visual into a holistic experience as a form of memory that is complete with emotions, thoughts and meaning that brings realization around an idea that can only be obtained through the experience of it. This reality formed in the imagination through thinking, creates a form of template that makes us a channel for the imagined idea to become a reality as an outer expression that’s a correspondence to the inner experience.

lost in space

This is the creative power of the mind to create experience by first creating it internally while shaping it with sensory detail and definition that sets the vibratory patterning that attracts and organizes the outer experience as a correspondence. The outer experience is not exact to the imagined one, although it can be, but is rather analogous to the inner experience. It’s of the same nature and theme as the internal experience, yet modified according to the elements available in the immediate surroundings, and the will, personality and interactive quality of those participating in the orchestration of the outer experience. Because the outer requires other people, situations and events, the original vision is modified accordingly as a basic requirement to incorporate the ideas and desires of all who partake in the over-all experience that is co-created as a shared reality.

 
This is why the emphasis is always placed on the “feeling” of the experience rather than the visual aspect. Visually it may be entirely different than you imagined it, yet it will feel the same. It’ll be the same type of idea as a form of theme, which is being illustrated in a modified and varied manner. The feeling, as the vibratory frequency is what composes and structures the experience to be of a certain patterning that beautifully conforms to the influences that everyone participating contributes, while maintaining the same basic idea as the essence of the over-all experience. You will recognize the fulfillment of your wish, not by what it looks like, but by what it feels like as you realize you’re in the process of having it.

Conscious Programming – “The Art of Self-Creation”

centering
The conscious aspect of the mind has the ability to program the subconscious mind, yet we have to first realize that they actually speak (work by) different languages. The conscious mind is abstract and thinks in terms of verbal language as words that lack behavior as actualizing, whereas the subconscious mind is experiential and emotional in nature and speaks in terms of pictures and sensory images as life-like realities that mimic actual memories. The conscious mind programs the subconscious (body awareness) through the imagination as an inner vision that transforms an abstract idea into a conceptualized reality. The imagination as the mind’s eye takes a basic idea, and through the process of applying it to a specific situation or set of circumstances, reinterprets it by personalizing it. We imagine it “as if” we were actually experiencing it as a real life situation. This creates the idea as a living pattern equivalent to a memory, which the subconscious uses to produce behavior that “acts out” the same scenario as a real life experience.

 
By imagining the desired idea as a reality, we not only create a pattern for application, but also create it as a believable possibility that we simultaneously identify with through the enactment. This creates the desired reality as an inner reality that the subconscious superimposes on the outer reality, organizing and reinterpreting it accordingly. The mind constructs realities by how it composes ideas to give them meaning. The meaning we give an idea determines how we experience it. Meaning shapes experience. It takes the imagined reality as an actual experience, which integrates and incorporates it through an accumulative effect that modifies the current paradigm as a system of beliefs based on memory (living realities) as a unification of the physical with the spiritual that provides a new template for generating thematic realities as analogous correspondences. It creates experiences that are of the same nature as a form of theme.

emanation

We take an abstract idea as a universal theme, and create an inner reality as a template that produces a frequency that’s used to magnetize and organize the outer reality as being of a similar nature. It won’t be exactly the same as the inner imagining, because it can only use elements in the immediate environment that are of the same frequency and therefore lend themselves to telling the same type of story. The outer experience will be of the same nature and basic idea of the imagined reality based on what’s available in the immediate environment that can be used to orchestrate the experience as a congruent theme.

 
Ideas, as feeling experiences, represent a vibratory frequency that attracts what is of the same nature and therefore has the same inherent tendencies that can be used to express the same idea as a joint reality. Whatever is of a different frequency, likewise, is simultaneously repelled. We only “see” ourselves (what matches our paradigm) in others and our environment, even though many other possibilities coexist within the same space and time. What is of the same nature as us we not only notice and give attention to (it stands out), we simultaneously allow to enter into us (energetic sympathy), stimulating an inner reaction (resonance) to it as a result. This is what we refer to as chemistry that produces a natural interaction based on an affinity of sorts.

 
When we allow ideas to readily and willingly be introduced into our mind, and take hold by thinking about them, we are allowing ourselves to be “programmed” by others or an external source. We then become subject to it because it acts to “tune us” to the same vibratory frequency as a joint reality that we create inward using our own mind. We allow ourselves to be determined – created – by outside forces. This is the result of the subconscious and passive aspect of the mind as our animalistic (body) nature that can be readily trained and domesticated by outside influences that we align with and allow to control us. We are influenced by another mind that imposes a direct influence on us, dominates by introducing an active force as an idea that’s willingly accepted by our passive and receptive mind, that controls us by absorbing and commanding our will.

cycles

When we give our will to the service of another by conforming to them, they act to control us and determine our behavior, which also shapes our identity accordingly. We enter into a sympathetic relationship with them, and through suggestion that acts to modify and manipulate our inner reality, we respond to them in a very predictable way. They train us to behave in a certain way by how they interact with us. Through the emotional quality of their communication, which acts as the hook for seating ideas in the imagination, allowing them to take hold long enough to develop them into personal realities by thinking about them in a compulsive manner. They “give us” emotional thoughts that are theirs, and we adopt them and then act to develop them as our own. This forms the basis of what we refer to as the “group mind” which is ultimately a form of subliminal mind entrainment designed to train people to certain types of behavior that they mistaken for their own.

 
Once we understand how we use our mind to self-create by creating internal realities that become the living patterns for outer realities of the same nature, we can withdraw our mental and emotional power from the group mind, and use our imagination to self-create in unique and individual ways instead. We can program our own mind and body by creating inner experiences of our desired reality, then enhancing them with sensory details, while infusing them with very positive emotions that magnetize them by making them compelling. Positive attracts and grows, negative repels and diminishes. To “become” by growing ourselves, is achieved through positive and active means, while allowing our negative, self-sabotaging aspects to fall away and subside, because we no longer keep them alive in our imagination. Fill your mind constantly with what you desire to experience and how you want to feel as a result. Sense yourself in very desirable ways that will shape your identity accordingly and will form your character as the means of bringing ideas into physical form as experiences that are self-perpetuated and performed by you!

The Pentagram – “Mind-over-Matter: Shaping Words into Realities”

vitruvian man
The pentagram is probably one of the better known symbols of Sacred Geometry, and also one of the most misunderstood. While many associate it to Witchcraft and Satanic Cults of various sorts, or see it as the sign representing the devil, in reality, it’s none of these, or perhaps all of these, depending on how you perceive them and whether or not you’re prone to superstition (believing in something we don’t understand). The most basic interpretation of this symbol is “personal power” as “mind-over-matter”. This is the mind’s ability to direct and shape the natural forces and the four elements that govern the physical realm, represented by the law of the Tetrad (4), which precedes it laying the foundation out of which it naturally emerges (laws unfold out of each other). The pentagram or pentad is the symbol of the number 5, and is represented by the five-pointed star. This is the “Star of the Magi”, as well as the symbol of the devil (lower nature), based on its positioning; upright with the single point in the ascendant position, or inverted with two points in the upper position. The “devil” in the case indicates the elemental s of the material world as governing or controlling the mind.

pentagram
The basic meaning that it represents is the mind’s ability to form and animate matter with consciousness (personality and identity). It’s the soul’s dominion over the 4 Elements as the phosphene substance or Astral Light of the material plane. This represents the Quintessence as the number 5 which is the number of the soul, which is also primarily of the Astral plane. It symbolizes the power of the imagination which has the ability to shape light into realities as internal images, and the soul (mind) which acts as the receptacle for Universal Light, which operates through the law of vibration, sympathetic induction and coherence, and acts to organize light (photons) into patterns as possible realities. This represents the soul’s ability of not only receiving and assimilating the images, reflections, and imprints contained in the Living Light – The Great Magnetic Agent – as “memories”, but also of “creating virtual memories” that can be used in place of actual memories to produce analogous realities as self-created experiences.

 
Like all laws and natural forces which exist in a fundamental state of polarity, and are “issued forth” in pairs as complementary opposites of the same operation that demonstrate a relationship, in order to properly understand the pentad (5), we have to look at it in relationship to not only the 4 or Tetrad which precedes and lays the foundation necessary to spontaneously birth it, but also the hexad (6) that emerges out of it, which is also symbolized as a star. If we think of these in terms of how they correspond to the chakra’s of the body (soul’s energetic anatomy), as the throat (5) and the 3rd eye (6), we can see that words as sound (whether silent as thought or spoken) are shaped into internal conceptualizations in the imagination. Words form the basis for analogous imagery. What we think we’re simultaneously imagining, and what we are imagining becomes the basis for what we say, talk about, or communicate to others. Thought as an imagined reality forms our “perceptual lens” and is what we “look through” that determines what we “see” in the outer world that corresponds to it as being of the same nature. The inner always provides the basis for the outer as a filtering system that the mind uses to organize the outer to be of the same nature or vibration as the inner.

“To speak is to create, to imagine is to see”

and the word was made flesh and walked among us

What we think as visual imagery and speak we actually create. Our words direct our imagination to form distinct images out of the words, which become the outer expression of inward imagining that projects and superimposes it onto the outer environment causing others to see the same sensory images. The words we speak are the images as patterns, and the emotion and attitude through which we speak them is the shaping mechanism that determines what memory we associate to it, and call forth in our mind as a means of developing the idea to be a proper vehicle of expression for that emotion. How we experience an idea is based on what feeling-emotion we attach to it. The image as a shape (outer reference) is the carrier-wave that transmits the emotion. An idea is always married to a feeling, which forms how we think about it, and how we adapt that idea to ourselves and our life circumstances by how we apply it in the moment, which modifies and re-configures it as a compliance.

 
The idea represented by the Tetragrammaton as the 4 Elements of the material plane, are the four lower points on the star that form a square, symbolizing the lower 4-dimensional plane, governed largely by instinct as memories of some sort. These four lower points as the Elements represent an idea (archetype or universal memory as a pattern), animated by a feeling-emotion (activating it), that forms a thought-process as a conceptualized internal representation of the idea, reshaping it as an adaptation to the mental paradigm of the individual as applied within their current life circumstances to produce an external reality as a personal experience that’s analogous to the internal experience. All of this, called the shaping of Astral Light as “thought-forms”, is performed within the faculty of the imagination (3rd eye). This imaginative ability is how the soul, as the astral mind, which is comprised of accumulated and integrated memories shapes the Astral Agent of phosphene-like Light into internal realities that become the basis for outer experiences.

creating Cameran Grey
Astral Light, also called terrestrial fluid, the Great Magnetic Agent, the Plastic Mediator, that is populated with the demons of the air, spirits of fire, phantoms of water, and the ghosts of the earth, all of which are invisible, ghost-like images as natural forces, are speaking of the same idea, they’re just using different terms to describe it. The pentagram represents the power of the spoken word (thought and speech) to shape images in the imagination, turning them into internal realities as living representations personalized by how the individual reshapes universal ideas (words) into a new variation filtered through and reorganized by their own paradigm (accumulated integrated memories). These images, formed in our imagination create “thought-forms” that are imprinted in our Astral Field or outer Mind (electromagnetic field surrounding and permeating our body), and are perceived by others as feelings and mental impressions, and are magnetic or attractive in nature.

 
Whatever we think about and internalize on a constant and regular basis with strong emotional content, we literally magnetize ourselves to. These electromagnetic thought-forms act to project and transmit as well as attract thoughts and ideas of the same nature in our outer world, while repelling anything that’s not of the same nature (form). We are literally “asking for” more of whatever we imagine and think about. Emotion acts as an amplifier, intensifying the signal, and is what directly connects us to everyone and everything around us. The emotions we’re experiencing at any given time are what we’re broadcasting and activating all around us, which are associated to analogous ideas that express and create more experiences that increase and give us more of that same feeling.

pentagram elementsThe star represents power over the lower world of Elementals, and when placed in a circle, which represents the Monad as the sphere of consciousness or mind-field of the soul (specialized pattern), contains and holds the Elements within it, where they are subservient to the will of the soul, which can use them as a creative tool and magnetizer for self-creating and producing self-designed experiences, formed in the imagination and superimposed or projected onto the outer environment creating and attracting corresponding elements that lend themselves to being shaped into the same type of patterns. All memories are created and replayed in the imagination, and are not based solely on actual experiences, but mostly out of imagined experiences that have been interpreted to make them mean something. Actual stored memories come out of events that have a strong emotional impact and form the “themes” that become basis of what we think about, and we propagate numerous “virtual” memories out of actual ones that are a pure fabrications of our imagination. But because they’re created in the same way, they produce the same affect, and they become a form of “self-programming”.

 
The pentad, which represents “regeneration”, also represents the phi relationship (3 + 2) as doubling and halving, where we manifest whatever is being emphasized, reproducing and multiplying it, growing and evolving our mental model through an accumulative process. This relationship is further demonstrated through the Fibonacci Sequence, which is based on reproduction as the present combined with the most recent memory of the past forms the basis for the future, again, corresponding to producing reality as a correlation of accumulative memory to produce endless variations of the same thematic idea. This idea of a basic set of memories integrated into a holistic pattern as a paradigm, forming the basis for propagating more memory of the same type as the means of self-creation and evolution, is the primary idea behind how the soul evolves through multiple lifetimes by repeating and creating out of the same basic set of memories.

star phi

How the pentagram is positioned, demonstrates the orientation in terms of what’s the governing factor. When positioned upright with the single triangle in the ascending position (top), it represents personal power as working consciously with the imagination to magnetize your self through the shaping of the elements. When reversed, with two points – triangles at the top (horns as division of the mind), and the single triangle or point at the bottom, represents the mind being controlled by the elements, and lacking power to control our own mind because we remain unconscious of our own true abilities, and use it in a haphazard way to create out of emotional and pleasure seeking states. Inverted represents being conditioned to automatic thoughts given to you by others, while using your imagination to think about the very thing you don’t want, and magnetizing yourself to it as a result. This symbolizes the most basic form of ignorance that spends its power magnetizing itself to its own imaginary fears and being controlled by others (through suggestion and emotions) while creating out of a primarily conditioned and reactive state.

 
An inverted Pentagram represents the “devil” if we understand the devil (“lived” spelled backwards) as being the thought-forms created by others that were born out of fear, anxiety, hatred, and intense emotions that populate the Astral Field of mass consciousness (delusions) as the “instinctual field of humanity” that we tune into and receive as ideas associated to our own emotional states, and act to co-create out of the delusions that plague humanity, without any real awareness that that is what we’re doing. We basically live our life from an unconscious state that relies on instinct as instant realities that produce automatic behaviors, and create out of error as a false idea about ourselves. We equate ourselves to the animal kingdom as our lower nature, and become a product of our conditioning. The devil, represented by the god named Pan, represents our lower-animal nature (half man and half goat), which is primarily instinctual in nature and unconscious in the most basic sense of not being aware of how you’re using your own mind, which is bestowed with higher-consciousness and the ability to create through choice and will by how we take control of our own mind and emotions, and operate it in a conscious (aware) and intentional manner.

reversed pentagram

The Pentagram, like all laws, cannot be properly understood as a singular, free-standing law, but rather needs to be viewed in its polar relationship as complementary aspects of the same operation, and by how it exists as apart of a continuous growth process. It must be viewed holistically and intuitively in terms of the full expression of the laws that precede it, that it naturally emerged out of, while still holding the latent potential of all laws that sequentially flow systematically from it. All laws originate out of the dyad (2 monads or spheres), which is considered the “parent number” out of which all reality emerges out of as a growth process. Because of this, the first “real number” is 3 (triad), which is the offspring as a combination of both masculine and feminine aspects, or the “inner and the outer”, which are complementary and act to stimulate each other, together form a unique variation as a combination or formula comprised of compatible aspects of both natures, in different quantities, degrees and potency’s (interference pattern). The numbers three through nine, three being the first “real number” as the offspring or combination formed by the dyad (mother and father), and ten being a repeat of one on a higher level or complete cycle (0) which are considered the base numbers and laws governing material and subtle reality, are seven. Seven is the number of the “virgin”, because it can’t be drawn in accurate and equal measurements, and so is expressed in a unique fashion each time it’s expressed. Seven is the number of creative expression.

 
Just as the Monad and Dyad represent a basic relationship as different aspects of the same thing, this same relationship continues as the offspring of laws that issue forth in pairs. The pentad (5) is complementary to the hexad (6), which is symbolized by the same idea of a star. The hexad comes in the form of the “Star of David”, and is formed by two triangles, positioned and moving in opposite direction as ascending and descending, or connecting the upper with the lower, just as the triad (3) and the Tetrad (4) represent the relationship between the inner and the outer as the triangle which forms a mirror image of itself outwardly, forming a diamond which is also a square. This same relationship correlated to the chakra system of the body as the 5th and 6th chakra, represent the spoken word (throat) that is formed into a reality in the imagination (3rd eye). The word as a sound vibration geometrically structures Astral Light into distinct patterns that the words represent. Our thoughts are words formed into living concepts which become the basis for our speech and our actions.

hex
These two laws, the pentad and the hexad, represent sound (whether silent or actual) that shapes Light into patterns as internal imagery that becomes the “lens we look through” (the pineal gland is a crystalline structure that reflects images on it’s surface) for seeing that same pattern-idea around us and connecting us to it in the outer world, where we act to awaken it through our very presence (consciousness). Then, after attracting and bringing the same pattern into an active state in others, we interact through it to produce the same pattern as an outer, joint experience. These two laws are represented in the Biblical phrase, “and the word was made flesh and walked among us.” To speak is to create, and to imagine is to see our creation as a possible reality. We create an inner reality that magnetizes us to that same reality around us. This is the power of our mind to literally shape our experience of reality, which in turn shapes us as the creator, main star, and witness to our own creation. Our imagination is how we create “memory” that forms our soul’s programming as a vibratory frequency that has both electric (perpetuating) and magnetic (attractive) properties. We are always the ones creating ourselves and our life by way of our own thinking.

The Power of the Imagination – “Becoming the Author and Main-Star of our own Life”

birth
The imagination is greatly misunderstood by many people, even though we all have one, in terms of its true power. While the imagination can be used in a very creative way to produce and develop new ideas and works of art, it is also used in the more mundane sense to create fantasies as delusions by making up stories about things, or by replaying memories over and over as new variations that keep us always creating out of the past. Either way we use it, it provides a form of mental construct as the preliminary blueprint or thematic template for turning an idea into a physical reality.

 
Many confuse imagining with visualization, and as a result, draw the conclusion that they can’t visualize. Yet everyone can visualize and are doing it all the time through a form of recollection (memory as a mental imprint), or simply conceptualizing an idea as a way grasping it, or playing out possibilities as a form of anticipation. The imagination, while it works largely out of visualization, also works via all the senses, and comes just as readily as hearing something, feeling a certain way, sensing touch, smell, and so on. To imagine something is to create a sensory experience of it. Because senses are interconnected, and one automatically stimulates the others through a chain-of-association, no matter what triggers the imaginative process, a full reality as an inner experience of some sort is what results.

 
Memory or ideas thought about and imagined, come as a form of “invisible-translucent image” that’s similar to a reflection on glass, or the reflection on a dark surface (mirroring quality). We can replay memories in our mind while starring off into the space around us shifting our attention from the actual reality which fades into the background while giving our attention to the imaginary reality taking its place. We then play one reality over the top of the other one. While imaginary realities don’t have near the prominence of the actual outer physical reality, we still feel, see, hear, and recall what we were thinking about in full detail, and they produce a pronounced “internal affect” that colors our outer experiences to be of the same “feeling state”. This quality as more of an invisible, translucent image, that’s superimposed over the outer reality, becomes our “perceptual lens” that we “look through” and use to interpret our outer reality to be of the same nature or thematic idea. Through this translucent imagery as a lens, we restructure our outer reality, by abstracting, illuminating and activating only what matches it and can be used to form the same patterning as a feeling state, while not even noticing the elements that don’t lend themselves to expressing and creating more of the same feeling-states. Our attention operates as a form of “activating system” that pulls out what’s of the same idea while causing whatever isn’t to return to a latent, inactive state, and fade into the background. Through this means, we “filter” our outer, objective reality to match our internal imagined reality.

allseeing eye
Whatever we think about and imagine, which simultaneously forms an intention and expectation, becomes the lens as an ordering –organizing mechanism that literally determines what we “see” by how our mind restructures it by forming a personal interpretation of it. Because of this natural ability of the mind, we literally create our own interpretation of reality, and everybody sees something different in the same situation based on this filtering mechanism produced by the imagination as the internal reality that becomes the template for rearranging the outer reality as a reconfiguration, while noticing only the things that can be readily incorporated in the story the internal reality tells, while completely ignoring or simply failing to notice anything that doesn’t naturally lend itself or acts to contradict our story.

 
The imagination is the faculty of the mind that structures a dynamic matrix out of accumulated memory, forming a mental paradigm through the creation and synthesis of the memories it’s comprised of, that transforms the outer to match the inner. The structure of the mind, as its vibratory frequency (corresponding series of interwoven patterns) literally reshapes the outer, objective and neutral reality, to be the same through how it’s interpreted to tell the same story that the paradigm is designed (structured) to tell. We first create our experiences out of our paradigm based on synthesizing accumulated memory, forming them into a new memory of the same kind of story, keeping ourselves programmed to the same type of memory as a life theme.

 

Memory is created in the imagination out of an actual event that we reshape, personalizing it, by giving it meaning. The meaning we give it forms the story we tell about it, which simultaneously means the same thing about us, about others, and about the way the world is in general. It defines us, the nature of our relationships, and the perceived conditions we live in. This accumulated memory forms a theme that tells a certain type of story. This thematic story becomes our perceptual filter that only creates more of the same type of experiences over and over, by how we think, what we’re always in the process of telling ourselves, and what we see or don’t see in the world around us. We begin interpreting everything by way of this theme, and then we identify with our own stories which simultaneously shape our identity. After a while, if we’re not telling (living) the same type of story, we don’t know who we are, or how to tell a different story. And so we live out of the same story as a mental projection most, if not all of our life, without ever realizing it’s our “own creation”, formed and kept alive through our imagination. Replayed and imprinted in our mind-field (Astral) that surrounds our body, like a reflection on glass that we look through to form our perception.

 
This is the most basic meaning of karma. We live out of the same type of memories as a storyline that creates us according to the identity required to “live” that story as the author of it and main character in it, that forms our perceptual lens as our paradigm that determines what we see, how we feel, and what story we act naturally to tell. We continue creating out of the same basic type of memory, forming the same realities, relationships, and interactive dynamics because we don’t realize that we’re actually the one creating it, and also, the only one who has the power to change it.

 

We can form purely creative ideas in our imagination that replicate actual memory. Because memory is created and replayed in the imagination and used to create our experiences, by imagining ideas with full sensory enhancement and feeling, we can provide our own mind with new ideas and patterns that will transform and evolve our perceptual lens to be able to tell new kinds of stories. In doing this, we simultaneously evolve our identity to new and higher forms of experience. We can keep ourselves in a constant state of growth rather than settling into a mundane and methodical existence where we live out of the same mind-set for a lifetime, missing the opportunity to create ourselves anew in every moment by learning to operate our own mind and exercising our creative abilities in the most primal sense . . . . by self-creating through our ability to produce virtual memories!

Internal Dialogue – “Natural Form of Self-hypnosis”

Scorpio_KayagaMany people believe that self-hypnosis is a technique or process that has to be studied and learned in order to be proficiently practiced. Yet, in reality, we are always engaged in self-hypnosis as the most fundamental behavior of the mind that we naturally engage in without realizing it. All operations of the mind are not foreign ideas that have to be sought after and learned in order to be able to do, but rather simply becoming fully aware of how we use our mind in an ordinary and ongoing manner.

We are constantly engaged in a form of thinking as internal dialogue that’s always telling us stories about people and things, wondering about something, describing something, explaining things, and creating an internal reality out of feeling emotions. All of this is the most basic and natural way that we act to program ourselves by use of our own mind-body system. The foundation of hypnosis is a relaxed and therefore receptive state (no resistance or challenging (your own) ideas), while being given suggestions as dialogue that you simultaneously picture in your mind as a image or object, scenario, or living reality as the conceptualization of what you’re telling yourself. This is the most natural way the conscious (thinking – talking) mind gives directives as commands or imaginary prompts to the subconscious (feeling – experiential) mind, which turns them into realities that appear real and create an internal experience of the thoughts, which become a form of virtual substitute memory that acts like a template for creating outer experiences that match the internal ones.

The conscious mind programs the subconscious mind by giving it instructions for what type of idea to make into a reality. The reality is a self-creation that not only provides a memory-template for the subconscious mind (which operates through memory) to create instant realities of the same nature, but also acts to hone our vibratory frequency to that reality, while simultaneously revealing our vibratory frequency as an expression, while also “asking” for more of the same thing.

doorway to other dimensions

Our internal dialogue as our most basic form of self-expression is also the most primary form of prayer that ‘asks’ for a certain type of experience through the universal language of sensory enhanced imagery formed in our imagination by us. We shape our own reality by how we use our imagination to first create it as on ongoing thematic story-line internally, tuning our vibration to that state-of-mind, which then acts as a mental filter or lens for restructuring our external reality to be ideal for telling the same type of story. We only ‘see’ and use the elements necessary for creating a story by how we interpret other people’s behaviors, situations or events. We reform our external reality to match our internal by how we interpret it to give it meaning. The meaning becomes the basis for the story that shapes the experience we create out of it. In any situation or event, we only notice and abstract what can be congruently used to tell the same type of story we hold as a life theme. Whatever doesn’t match or naturally lend itself to the telling of our thematic story, we don’t notice or react to.

Our subconscious mind, which is equivalent to our body-consciousness, produces behavior to act out whatever story as a reality it has been programmed with, through memory of some form. Whatever we think about that has strong feelings and emotions attached to it, which is why we keep thinking about it, while running it through our mind repeatedly and imagining it as different scenarios being played out in a variety of ways, is programming ourselves to naturally create those type of experiences as a general theme that’s congruent with our life’s story.

Mental freeflow

We naturally engage in this process most of the time without direct awareness of what we’re actually doing. Naturally any experience that has a strong emotional impact anchors that memory in our body, making it compulsive. We tend to dwell in it, and think about it constantly throughout the day as normal random thinking and daydreaming. As we run thoughts through our mind repetitively we program ourselves to the frequency of those thoughts, not only seeing them readily and reacting to them in others and in our environment, but we also magnetize ourselves according to those thoughts (which are imprinted in our Astral (mind) field) and draw to ourselves people and situations ideal for creating more of those same type of experiences.

So the most basic form of self-mastery as self-realization and creation, is not only to master our own internal dialogue and what we focus on, think about and picture in our mind as a potential experience, but to use it intentionally and in a deliberate manner to program ourselves with positive ideas that strengthen virtuous qualities within our character that tell naturally express by telling beautiful, adventurous, and meaningful stories of your own choosing that enrich our sense of well-being and our ability to enjoy and relax into our own life. Whatever you tell yourself as an imaginary thought-process, you become. The trick to anchoring the thought is to imbue it with strong feelings and emotions that make it appealing and compelling. Feel the thought by shaping it with sensory definition (what are you seeing, hearing, feeling, telling yourself) creating it as a living experience in your mind’s eye, and begin programming yourself in a way that allows healing and a sense of empowerment within your own life. Take control of your life by consciously using your mind to self-create and become self-determined as a result.

Spiritual Knowledge is Laws that are Encoded in Symbolic Language: “Spiritual Principles are Creative Tools for Conscious Evolution”

decahedron metatrons cube Spiritual knowledge, unlike most things, requires you to seek it out through an inner desire for it, which intuitively communicates its knowledge through the language of imagery and geometry requiring you to acquire a broad range of knowledge in order to intuitively interpret it.  It’s not stated in plain terms as something specific, because it can’t be. If it is stated as something specific, then it’s really simply one aspect, or metaphorical way of looking at it that simply introduces an idea as a concept into your mind as a form of seed, that comes alive and begins growing as a continuous process of unfolding as a dynamic series of a chain-of-associated and correlated ideas that lead you deeper and deeper into related ideas as a kind of vastness that’s ultimately connected and correlated with everything else. The entire natural world (universe) is all governed by the same handful of laws as invisible forces that organize, form, and operate the material world. All true spiritual knowledge is the practical understanding of universal laws that are active and creative in every single aspect of the manifest world.

 
Just as the fundamental laws are all connected and interdependent as a form of growth process that moves systematically through stages and phases of development, the knowledge represented by these laws do the same thing. Spiritual knowledge as universal laws remain alive and in a constant state of fluctuation as a continuous evolution of the same fundamental ideas going through numerous spontaneous transformations as a dynamic relationship that constantly expresses in new ways, as new variations of the same idea in every moment based on how they’re being perceived, interpreted, and applied. The spiritual realm of pure energy is not fixed and formed like the material realm, but exists in a purely potential state as infinite possibilities for the same idea (pattern) to be formed and expressed based on what individual mind tunes into it, serves to conceive of it, and forms it into a personalized version by how they imagine it and adapt it to their current conditions and circumstances to produce an actual experience as the physical equivalent.


Ideas are principles that exist as archetypes (memory as dynamic living patterns) that are represented by geometric shapes (form, function & behavior) that are mathematical in nature (exist in relationships) and form a living entity (personality), imbued with distinct attributes, qualities and characteristics as it’s innate constitution. The constitution of an animated being has a form of personality in it that display distinct attitudes and behaviors, and undergo natural operations as biological processes that create in the physical world through myths or stories the personality naturally tells by how it interacts in relationship to everything else.

 
Principles as philosophical mathematics, structure the material realm determining how it naturally functions. The form biological matter takes on, determines what it does through natural behaviors and how it does it as a form of style or personality. Form that’s structured and animated through life-force energy, functions in very distinct ways through a kind of personality, which not only determines what processes it performs, but the quality of consciousness as characteristics that form traits for “how it does it” in a somewhat unique fashion. These principles as life-forms remain in a constant state of growth and evolution because in every moment they’re entering into relationship with everything else around it that modifies it by exchanging information as an energetic form of metabolism, reforming it to express in new ways through different combinations of information that it integrates that reconfigures it. All physical matter, though it appears solid and consistent in its behavior, remains in a constant state of regeneration that comes by exchanging information between the inner core and the outer environment, which equalizes the internal to match the external. The molecular structure of the material entity is constantly conforming to its environment as the means of survival and growth within or by way of the environment, that’s the most basic function of evolution.

birthHuman beings, which are bestowed with a higher mind that’s creative in nature, and have the ability to modify the environment as a means of surviving and functioning within it, only exchanges energy with what’s of a similar vibration or quality of consciousness with everything around it through resonance. It forms union with ideas that can be shaped into it’s model of the world in a congruent fashion and used to tell their primary life’s story. Vibration as ideas that are too different and exist in a range that can’t be processed by our vibratory frequency, doesn’t resonate with us, and isn’t integrated as a means of modifying our vibration. Because of this law, the law of sympathies and antipathies, we tend to only grow and evolve through absorption and assimilation of the same frequency (range), and only occasionally move into different frequencies.

 
When we do grow in a significant manner, it’s usually not through deliberate intentions (though it can be), but by having change thrown on us through changing life circumstances that force us to resort to alternative means because our entire life situation changes, and new influences and processes come into play, that we have to adjust to by changing our most basic routines that form our daily lifestyle, which act to break the pattern set by the old routine. Frequencies can be thought of as creative patterns, where we live out of the same tendencies and personality traits that keep repeatedly creating the same type of situations that tell the same type of story over and over throughout our life. When we evolve into a new frequency, we act to initiate and actively participate in creating a new type of story that employ new aspects of our character not being used when telling the previous story.

 
Spiritual knowledge, unlike conventional knowledge, requires intuitive development as a means of sensing and interpreting the symbolic language it’s written in. Conventional knowledge is given to us in written, verbal language as already interpreted for us. We don’t have to form our interpretation as a unique and personal version, but simply have to accept it verbatim as knowledge itself, without ever having to think for ourselves as the means for interpreting it that transform it into a personalized version that’s unique to us. Because spiritual knowledge requires us to interpret it intuitively, we not only learn simultaneously “how to think for ourselves”, but we have to form a concept of it in our imagination that turns it into a reality as a practical application as an inner experience that becomes a form of virtual memory that acts as a form of blueprint for using within our daily lives in order to consciously create reality. Laws and principles are the tools for “how to” create life.

In order to use an idea, we have to have a working understanding of it. We can only understand what we can conceptualize as an internal representation that forms it as a possible outer reality or actual material object. So information that’s communicated symbolically teaches us how to think by imagining, how to conceptualize by applying to a real life scenario, and integrates the information into our paradigm as a form of virtual experience that becomes an actual memory. As we form ideas into realities that operate according to natural laws, they’re formed into memories that can be recollected, accessed and used for reference, and used as a creative tool from that point on. We acquire the information as a “paradigm shift” by internalizing it to bring it from a thought into an actual form that operates in a specific and consistent way. Knowledge as experience that forms a memory becomes a permanent and natural part of how we feel, perceive and interpret life events. It becomes a built-in process of how we naturally think.

 
All spiritual development is personal development as the knowledge of laws, integrated into the mind to evolve the soul, that are brought into practice to form our daily lifestyle and natural behaviors as the primary means of personal transformation. Only knowledge that’s applied and lived serves to reform us as an evolving creation. Laws and principles, which pertain to all of life, provide us with the creative tools for shaping our life by “living them”. By how we utilize them to make everyday decisions and direct our own behavior. Laws as spiritual technology provide us with the means to grow and evolve ourselves into higher levels of consciousness and vibrate at a higher frequency, as harmonious with Nature and at one with all of life.

Becoming more Conscious: How we Replace Reality with Illusions

When we say that we tend to live a life of illusions that we mistaken for reality, many don’t know for sure what this means, or how it is that we all do it in a very natural way. Because our mind functions largely out of what we call the unconscious aspect, we tend to use our mind in a very natural way without any direct awareness of what we’re doing. This general sense of confusion is compounded by the paradox that exists between the two aspects of the mind called the conscious and subconscious, where the subconscious operates out of memory, yet is not creative in nature, and only creates memory out of “actual experiences”, whereas the conscious mind, which is the self-aware aspect that also has the ability to be present and stay centered in the actual reality going on around it, spends most of its time consumed with thoughts of the past that it imagines over and over as different scenarios that create a form of “false reality” as an imagined one, that not only prevents us from actually experiencing the present reality, but serves to provide the subconscious with a form of virtual experience that it utilizes just like an actual memory.

The subconscious mind isn’t creative like the conscious, in the sense that it doesn’t have the ability to “make stuff up”, and doesn’t tell stories about things like the conscious mind does, and forms instead a kind of objective memory as important information about the environment that it designs behaviors around as a means of existing within it that are appropriate and necessary for its survival and over-all well-being. The subconscious mind, which is always running the normal biological functions of the body, regulates all of our natural and automatic behaviors that we do without having to think about them, and therefore remain largely unaware of them. This is a very basic form of evolution that’s being played out as the internal (body) being constantly adjusted by the environment (external) to become equivalent. The subconscious mind is the aspect of the mind that’s always connected to and exchanging information with everything around us through emotions. Emotions can be thought of as the physical equivalent to vibration as qualities of consciousness. Information as a vibratory stimulation to the body produces body chemistry as emotions. Emotions produce automatic behaviors that are a form of instinct. Because of this, the emotional states that we live out of are always producing and determine how we act and behave, most of which happens without our direct awareness.

The self conscious aspect which is also the creative component, and has the ability to literally “program” the subconscious through deliberate use of the imagination, the faculty of the mind where we’re capable of creating internal realities that don’t actually exist outwardly in the present, but instead of realizing this powerful ability to program ourselves by way of what we think about and imagine, we tend to use this ability in a very haphazard way, by dwelling in old memories, replaying them over and over in our mind by imagining them, which stimulates our emotions in response (that are the vibratory equivalent) to our own imaginings (creation), that simultaneously form a virtual reality that the subconscious interprets to be an actual reality (the emotional reaction is cause by the subconscious reaction) and uses it just like it does and actual memory that programs it with the behaviors inherent in the reality we’re imagining. Memories (virtual or actual) provide the subconscious mind with whole patterns for producing analogous realities.

creating spheres
Whatever we think about, we are systematically developing a whole array of behaviors out of that we perform without actual awareness of what we’re doing. Anything offered up to the subconscious mind in its own language as a reality, becomes our natural way of being. We act on ourselves with our own imaginings which is perceived “as if” they’re real and actual experiences, and tune ourselves simultaneously to the emotional vibration of those thoughts, acting them out be how we behave, which connects us to the same type of reality as a pattern or “type” of experience in everyone and everything around us. The emotional component as the frequency, vibrates that same emotion in anyone who has programmed themselves to a similar story as a thematic reality. Emotions are part of whole patterns as memory that’s an idea that systematically activates the thoughts as visual imagery that match it, and produce an inner experience as an imaginary reality that replaces the actual one, while stimulating the type of thoughts that go with the emotion, and thereby connect elements and people who are programmed to act out together the same type of realities and living dramas as a joint experience that tells the same type of story.

Our current thoughts, which often have nothing to do with the present, and prevent us from being present in our lives, creates a false reality in place of the true, objective reality. The imagined scenarios we run through our mind that causes us to feel the way we do, are self-made illusions that we mistaken for real while forming an attachment to them as a kind of love for our creation, that become delusional as a result. We are always “making our reality” and creating how we experience the outer world by how we exist in relationship with it and by how we “act on ourselves” to program ourselves to the reality of our imagining, usually based on past memories that had a strong emotional impact, that we continue to live out of and use to create more of the same type of experiences long after they’re gone. They no longer exist except in our imagination, which keeps them alive by giving them our constant attention and building our identity by way of the story we tell out of them, usually, without ever realizing that that’s what we’re actually doing.

The-Knowledge-of-the-Planets-Cameron-Gray
To bring this idea into practice in your daily life, simply start by examining your own thought processes that you normally do without thinking about (paradox intended). Notice what filters you use as a form of judgment that reforms everything according to a certain type of story that you use to explain and describe things that make them mean something specific. Notice how you use the memories formed from past experiences to recreate experiences in the present that are of the same nature and give you more of the same type of experience as the past experience. Allow yourself to notice what type of story you’re always in the process of telling yourself about things, and realize how often this story runs as a means of how you normally think about things.

Once you become aware of your own tendencies, simply learn to relax your mind, pull your attention away from your habitual thought patterns, and focus on your breathing, becoming present in your body. Then release all automatic thoughts and become aware of your actual environment. Pay attention to what’s around you while continuing to refrain from thinking about them. Instead, simply notice things in terms of how they feel. Notice how you feel in relationship with your environment. And simply experience things as they exist in their own right within the present moment. Don’t allow your judgmental mind to kick in and begin telling a story about them, or go off into an imaginary tangent, simply observe them from a neutral position, and allow impressions to rise in your body in response to them. Interact with them as they are in the present through what they are actually stimulating in you in response to them. Allow new feelings to rise without restricting them, and be willing to interact in new ways creating a new type of experience that will allow you to sense yourself in new ways. As you do this, allow yourself to realize that you can easily begin to learn how to tell a different type of story, and become a different type of person through that story, by simply letting go of the past and the story you formed about life from the experiences of the past, and remain present in your life, accepting it as it is, and interacting with it based on what its warranting in you in relationship to it.

We can all learn how to tell a new kind of story by simply realizing the one we’re currently always in the process of telling and what kind of person it has developed us to be through the telling, and decide instead what type of a person you want to be, then learn how to look at life through the lens of that quality, and begin interacting in new ways, creating new experiences of ourselves that become the new memory that we use to program ourselves in a progressive and decisive manner. In order to develop ourselves, we can decide what qualities we want to develop, then intentionally embody that state, see life through the perceptual lens of that state that “sees” that same quality in everything else, then interact with that same quality in others, creating experiences out of it that we draw into ourselves and acquire as actual experiences of ourselves and others. Memories created through experiences, are a primary form of self-programming, and work through an accumulative affect. As we begin acquiring new experiences of ourselves that begin telling a new type of story, we begin accumulating new memories that act to transform the old ones and we evolve ourselves accordingly.

The Power of Words – “Vibrating Realities”

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

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

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

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

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

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