Becoming More Self-Aware

The most basic process for becoming more self-aware is to learn how to be present in your body and aware of your immediate environment. Your body is your vehicle (medium) for attaining awareness of yourself and for creating how you interact with the world around you as a means of experiencing yourself through it, as an essential part of it. You can use your body to intentionally “tune into” the emotional frequencies that are actively expressing in the environment around you. Your body is a fundamental part of the entire material world and is constantly in tune with it energetically (instinctively) – which means everything in the outer world can be known “directly” through the intimate feeling you get when you focus on and become aware of it. You’re always aware of and being influenced by the dynamic layering of active energies you’re steeped in at any moment in time. In the most basic sense, we all exist in a turbulent sea of emotional energy that’s connected to and acts to draw in and utilize instinctual intelligences that populate the atmosphere (astral field) around us.

When you hear the term “collective unconscious”, which we participate in by virtue of having an unconscious (subconscious) mind, it’s referring to the greater field of consciousness we’re all apart of that’s governed by instinctual forces which are activated and driven almost exclusively by emotional impulses and electrical discharges. There’s no “individuality” in this aspect and level of the mind. This is what you can think of as the “group mind” of the Earth’s soul, where every being that’s a part of it is governed by the same “field of information” (memory) and electrical impulses that systematically propagate through it, where the aspect they “draw on” is based on their archetypal class and species. What makes humans different from all other species and kingdoms on Earth is that we also have a “conscious mind”, which is of a different type of collective mind. Our conscious mind is our “creative mind” of thought and will, and is creative in terms of how we use it in forming our “individuality”.  It’s what gives us the ability to “think in words” that naturally form mental concepts, pictures, and images in our mind’s eye, to reason and problem solve, to discriminate and rationally evaluate things as the basis for making calculated, well thought out decisions which we then actively turn into a reality that provides us with the basis for “experiencing” our own creations.

twin flame of higher self

This is the part of us that thinks linguistically as a form of inner dialogue, where we’re always “talking to ourselves” as a means of producing how we experience everything by molding it into an ongoing storyline (life theme) that we’re always in the process of telling ourselves. If you simply turn your awareness inward and observe your own internal processes, you’ll notice that “one part of you” is always “talking to another part of you” or is engaged in a conversation with a “higher power” of some kind as your natural thought-processes. Your conscious mind is your rational mind which is nearly always explaining, describing, and justifying things in order to make them “mean” something. Our experiences naturally arise out of the ongoing story we’re always in the process of telling ourselves that’s formed out of meaning we give things.

As we think about something we build it into an “internal representation” (IR) on the inner planes of our mind that serves to represent a particular “type” of experience. Based on how we present the idea to ourselves as a possible experience, we naturally act to generate a corresponding emotion in response to it. The emotion coupled with the IR determines how we actively express it through an ongoing story we’re always in the process of telling ourselves as a means of creating how we “experience our life”. As we mentally create our own experiences inwardly, we then associate and identify with our own creation, shaping ourselves in relation to it. This is the most basic process we’re always using as the means of “creating ourselves”. This is the creative part of your mind that turns thoughts into outer realities as a means of experiencing yourself through and as the main character in your own self-made movie (story).

The story you began telling yourself when you were young as a means of trying and make sense of what was going on around you, was initially formed through your formative conditioning before your conscious mind began developing and you were living primarily out of your emotional states. As a child you began using your imagination to form imaginary realities out of how you felt and what emotions you were experiencing at the time. This occurs naturally while your conscious mind is in its initial stage of developing (7 to 8 years old), where as you began forming thoughts of your own, they were driven almost entirely by your feelings and emotions, which were being generated automatically by whatever behaviors and activities were going on around you at the time and that you were a natural part of. These behavioral patterns are called “dynamics” because they’re formed out of greater patterns as a formula and combination of everything actively expressing in a situation. You’re never just influenced by one person, one activity, or one behavior in a situation, it’s a combination formed by everything in close proximity that’s even remotely a part of the situation. Dominant influences simply direct the flow of activity based on how it exerts a direct influence on everything else, shifting it to match its vibration as an attitude and mindset.


This activity, which normally takes place below the level of direct awareness, can be readily understood by simply cultivating the ability to become aware of internal processes set in motion through outside activity. Everything in the material world functions through vibration as polarities that stimulate each other into an active state of expression through the law of “cause and effect”, or “stimulus-response”, where they also switch polarities through a rhythmic back and forth movement where the “effect” produced then becomes “causal” in its return flow. While we can certainly understand this principle conceptually, gaining an intellectual knowledge of it that’s objective and non-personal in nature, we can more importantly gain an intuitive understanding of it by turning our attention inwardly and “observing” how we experience it internally as “sensations” that act to naturally produce a correlating response.

The only way we have of actually “knowing something” is through a direct experience of it. This is because at the level of energy, consciousness, and spirit, everything operates through “law”, which is an objective, non-personal process that provides the basis for translating into a personal experience. Energy functions in an automatic manner at the subtle level, and is what stimulates and gives rise to the quality of energy out of which a dynamic series of personalized experiences are formed that are all correlated to each other, forming a larger pattern as a “behavioral dynamic” that follows a distinct “theme”. The universal theme is formed out of the “frequency” that’s actively expressing in any situation which serves as the connective element that ties everything together in a logical and cohesive way, where as they play out together they still make sense to everyone involved in terms of how they’re interpreted in a slightly different way to form a plethora of variations that are all congruent and harmonious in nature. Everybody that’s a part of and actively playing a role in creating the same situation, will experience it in a way that’s unique to them, because everyone is creating how they experience it out of their own mental model.

At the subconscious level of the group mind, emotion and the memories associated with the emotions are the creative force and universal language that governs all activity. The group mind can be thought of as the atmosphere (field of organized light) that surrounds and is being formulated by the Earth as its soul, consciousness, and archetypal memory (etheric blueprint). The atmosphere around us contains the memory of the Earth’s soul as the field of information that’s comprised of instinctual forces that act to design, inform, and instruct all life on earth. This field operates through electrical impulses that serve to bring different aspects into an active state of expression, and once the proper group of qualities are activated and called forth, they form a living pattern of activity that plays out while constantly encountering, taking on, and integrating new qualities as it moves through the atmosphere from one location to the next. We’re constantly exchanging energy as varying degrees of consciousness with everything around us through a form of cellular respiration.

Toroidal field of energetic respiration

As we move through this invisible, atmospheric field of living forces, we’re constantly being stimulated by them, where our “formula of active qualities” at any given moment and point are harmonious with the environment we’re a natural part of. This is how instinct and the subconscious works. We experience these in the normal sense as subtle nuances that come as “feelings” and sensations, and occasionally as a pronounced electrical charge or emotional trigger. As we go along our energy field is constantly flexing and shimmering into variable states that reflect and are of the same consciousness as the environment we’re an essential part of. The problem arises from us not being aware of this or failing to comprehend how it works in the most practical sense. So let’s take a moment to tune into and simply observe how this operates within us as a normal process of cause and effect, stimulus response, and action reaction.

Set aside moments throughout your day where you can observe this process as it occurs “within” you. Truth can only be known through direct experience that brings insight into the invisible, subtle, underlying activity of energy. As you go through your day, when the moment is appropriate for inner reflection, and you’re in a situation where a distinct attitude or passion is being expressed, allow yourself to notice how it is you’re being internally stimulated by it. Notice where in your body you feel a pronounced sensation and what it feels like, what does it bring alive inside of you? Notice that as it brings the sensation alive as a feeling or emotion of some kind, it also has an idea associated with it that forms a mental impression of some kind and sets a whole internal process of activity in motion. This process is based on the meaning inherent in the emotional charge produced. As it stimulates you, notice that you associate it with a memory of some kind that has a particular theme inherent in it. As you instantly reference an existing memory associated with the feeling, where the present feeling is associated with a past memory formed out of the same feeling, there’s a part of you that says, “this means the same thing as that”, and this “interpretation” is what forms the basis of your natural reaction or interaction. As you’re stimulated it adjusts your mental state to match it as a natural process of equilibrium.

As the other person or outside force stimulates you with a feeling or emotion, a form of energetic calibration takes place, where your state is formed as a direct correspondence to their state. As an emotion that’s correlated with an idea is brought alive inside of you as an “effect” produced by the outside activity, you incorporate the energetic transmission into your mental model (signature frequency), modifying it accordingly, and through your expression as a return of the same emotional state and idea, it then becomes “causal” by stimulating them in a like fashion, producing a slightly varied state in them. You act to modify the active energy by how you translate it through your mental model and what thoughts you match to the emotion, and as you continue to interact a back and forth movement of correlated energy takes place that’s constantly adjusting the shared state based on new feelings or ideas that are communicated.

telepathic transmission

Communication, in the most basic sense, isn’t only based on the words that are spoken, it’s a full body expression. We communicate using our whole body and being, which includes not only the idea being communicated through the words we’re using, but also the feeling and attitude associated with it based on “how” we say it. It comes as more of a unified, synchronistic movement of your entire mental field and “way of expressing” it. The words merely form the initial idea as a mental concept shaped and given life by the attitude and tone of voice we employ in saying it, and how our gestures and body language further emphasize “how we mean it”. Our body is the part of us that’s always tuned into our environment and is present all the time, feeling all the energetic nuances and moods being actively expressed by everything around us. We’re always reading the energy around us by becoming “like it in feeling sensations”, so we can form immediate and appropriate responses without having to think about them or analyze what we’re feeling.

It’s only the conscious aspect of our mind that’s consumed in the eternal reality of our own thoughts, where we’re “lost in time”, so to speak, living out of the make-believe world we’re always constructing and reconstructing out of memories in the faculty of our imagination. When you step out of the imaginary world of thought for a brief period, and become intimately present in your own body, noticing all the sensations taking place, you can begin realizing how your state is constantly being adjusted by all the subliminal activity going on around you. As your state shifts and varies from moment to moment, so do your natural thoughts and what type of ideas that run through your mind in an automated fashion. Through a process of introspection you can come to recognize and understand how it is that you’re always being shaped as a “product of your environment”, usually without being aware of it. Through awareness of your own internal processes you can begin recognizing how it is that you’re always in the process of becoming “like” the people around you through your interaction and what part of your character is being brought alive in relation with them.

In a similar fashion, you can also take time to sit quietly for a few minutes, clear all your thoughts as best you can, relax your body, create a calm inner state, and then introduce a thought or intentionally focus on something, while paying attention to how your body automatically responds to your own thoughts about things. As you think about something, based on how you present the idea to yourself as an possible “experience”, your body will automatically generate an emotion in response to it. The emotion generated becomes the active, motivating force that determines how that idea becomes expressed in your current situation or daily life to produce “how you experience it”. This will give you insight into how it is that you’re constantly determining your emotional state based on what you focus on, think about, and build into a possible reality in your imagination. Also, allow yourself to notice that “tension” is produced in your body by the emotions related to your thoughts, whether they’re positive or negative, and that as a result, emotions are “held in your body” (muscle) as cellular “memory”.

Through this basic awareness of invisible processes that can be known internally, you can begin not only gaining control of your own reactions and automated tendencies, but once mastered to a high enough level of consistency, you can manage your own internal state as a means of intentionally influencing others and directing their behaviors through suggestion. You can plant a “seed” delivered with the proper feeling and attitude that will determine how it’s developed by the person conceiving it. But in order to do this, you have to first be able to manage your own internal state through a direct awareness of what feelings and qualities are actively expressing around you, and instead of going unconscious and playing into whatever you’re being stimulated by, you can intentionally gain rapport with them by “becoming like them” (mirroring), both mentally and physically. You can embody the same mental state, demeanor, and posturing for a short period of time, matching and mirroring them, so to speak, and then begin gradually changing your inner state and body language, and they will naturally follow you into a whole new state of mind and attitude.

as above, so below, as within, so without

Our Mental State Determines Our Reality

Allow yourself to notice that whatever your state of mind is at any moment, is being reflected back to you through your perception of the outer world. The outer world is always formed as a reflection or projection of our inner world. Our inner state shapes ideas as metaphors that have a larger theme correlated with them, allowing them to be adapted to any situation  where they naturally form new variations of the same idea. Our mental model is what’s always forming and maintaining our perception of the outer world, where we modify everything to take on the same basic idea as an energetic state and attitude. An idea can be expressed in any number of situations, using whatever elements are available in that situation, forming it into the “same type of idea as an experience”. Another way to think about this is by realizing that whatever “mood” you’re in at any given moment, determines what type of things you focus on, what memories you replay over and over in your mind and use to build numerous scenarios, what type of things you think about in an automated manner, what you notice in everything around you, and what you tell yourself about everything that makes it mean what it does.

In the most basic sense, everything that comprises and forms our material reality is based on our mental model, which is a form of archetype that serves as a prototype for producing a consistent type of experience. Our mental model is what gives our life continuity. As we form an idea on the inner planes of imagination (image turned into a nation) we bring it alive as a corresponding vibration by constructing it into an internal representation formed out of “sensation”. We construct it by imbuing it with sensory attributes and qualities that cause it to come alive with movement on the mental plane, causing a correlating response on the material plane of the body. As we vibrate it internally, the frequency formed has a “metaphorical pattern” inherent in it that operates through polarity to construct, reconstruct, and consistently form that same type idea as our outer perception. As we move through the atmosphere, we’re constantly calibrating it to resemble and reflect back to us our own thoughts and beliefs about it. This polarized movement comes as a rhythmic flow of cause and effect which, as it flows from an inner to an outer pole of the same idea, reverses polarity, and absorbs the experience created through its own mental projection, building it back into the model that projected it, upgrading it through the incorporation of any new variables or possibilities attained, altering its vibration slightly, to form the next projection.

As we “look through” our mental paradigm (perceptual lens), which vibrates at the frequency of our constitution, we organize the information available in the outer world to match it, which is what allows us to “experience ourselves”, and come to know ourselves through our own mental projection. Our mind vibrates at the frequency of our inner composition, and acts “on” the outer field of probability and latent potential to only activate (vibrate) and bring forward (in our awareness) what’s of an equivalent nature or quality of consciousness (order through natural selection), and “recomposes” it to produce a variation of our soul’s signature frequency as a “life theme”. This is what “sets the stage” for us to act out our life experiences. We bring alive everything around us that’s of the same essence and nature as we are and reconstruct it to produce an experience of ourselves as an essential part of our own mental construct. What tends to make this elusive in the most basic sense, is that the outer world is constructed to resemble the “entire content of our mind”, including the parts of ourselves that we’ve repressed, suppressed, disowned, and lost direct awareness of. It’s through our ability to determine our own, personal reality that we also create ourselves by how we then associate and identify with the world of our own making.

Field of consciousness

Our mind is a field of highly organized information formed out of memory of ourselves as different aspects of our character that are reflected back to us on a larger scale that’s more diverse and inclusive (the One becomes the many, and the many are molded back into One). We construct the same archetypal idea outside of us that originates inside of us, so we can experience ourselves through and as a fundamental part of our own creation. We project the outer world through our perception of it, reshaping it to be of the same nature as we are, and then interpret our own perception to tell a consistent story as a means of creating how we experience ourselves. How you experience something isn’t based on an objective process, it’s based on how you interpret what’s happening to or around you, that makes it mean something. The meaning you give it forms the internal dialogue you generate that accompanies it as a form of story or narrative that you tell yourself as a means of experiencing your own creation. The memory you form out of the experience isn’t based on the physical situation or event itself, it’s formed out of how you interpreted the event by molding it into an ongoing story you’re always in the process of telling yourself. The outer formation created is then absorbed and integrated back into your mental model, which served to produce it in the first place.

The relationship that exists between “thought and emotion” is one of the most basic ways we can understand the relationship that exists between the two aspects of our conscious and subconscious, which is also what we call our higher and lower nature. By realizing these are complementary aspects of the same mind, we can learn to work using their main features and how they function together in forming a single reality. Our conscious mind functions as thought that we construct into whole realities using the faculty of our imagination, and also in translating those realities into memory; while our subconscious is of an emotional nature and functions by using memory to produce all of our natural activities. Due to the fact that we’re born into the world with only our subconscious active as are instinctual nature, by the time our conscious mind of thought and reasoning begins developing, they’re run by our emotions, and we use the creative ability of our thoughts to form whole realities that serve to express our emotional state (this is what illusions are).

Child's imagination

Because we don’t realize this at a young age, and nobody teaches us about how our mind works to form our reality, we become accustomed to our lower nature running our thoughts and utilizing its ability to create by producing emotional dramas in place of rational reasoning. By the time we hit puberty, where our conscious mind becomes prominent in being able to create based on how we identify with our own thoughts and experiences, we’re living almost exclusively out of the emotional states and dynamics formed out of our conditioning, and we shape our identity by how we associate with our own emotional delusions. When we continue through adulthood without learning or realizing how our own “mind-body system” works, we spend our whole life living an illusion born out of a primarily unconscious state. We allow our thoughts to be governed by our emotions and run in a habitual manner, completely unchecked. We then create ourselves to be an intelligent animal, never developing the higher capacities of reasoning and rational thinking, which are necessary to become self-aware and master our ability to be self-determined by learning how to create ourselves in a more intentional way by utilizing our emotional nature to fuel our thoughts, instead of letting them determine our thoughts.

Some people will swing to an extreme and play off the idea that we need to cleanse ourselves of our emotional nature altogether, by only relying on our rational mind. Yet this sets us up for failure because we become plagued with a constant form of inner conflict and always having to resist the impulses flowing naturally throughout our body and environment. The secret to life is always about bringing what exists as complementary aspects into a balanced state, where their union is harmonious and one complements and accentuates the other. This process of equilibrium is achieved by recognizing the laws that govern each one and how they exist in polarity to each other as a relationship and way of interacting that produces a unified reality. While each aspect of our conscious and subconscious is governed by different laws, these laws function in the most basic sense through polarity, where “one” acts naturally to stimulate the other into an active state, and once in an active state, serves to stimulate (vibrate) the other one in return. These two aspects of the mind are not separate from each other or different minds in themselves, they’re polar aspects of the same mind and are necessary to produce movement as vibration.

What this shows us is that what we imagine to be outside of us is actually an extension of “us” being projected as a mirror image of what’s inside of us, where the one becomes the many, and the many become one. What we see outside exists silently inside of us, and what we see when we look inside of ourselves is the metaphorical seed that’s birthing and maintaining the outside as the means for attaining a consistent type of experience. This is what “know yourself” means. On the higher plane of the true conscious mind, the entire lower world exists in its archetypal form as the seed for generating our reality through a form of growth process that we experience as a dynamic “unfolding”, where we move in a synchronized fashion through correlated stages and phases of development. Our world is constantly being ordered, assembled, and maintained by our higher mind. The conscious mind can be thought of as the architect who designs the whole scheme as a mental concept (memory), and the subconscious as the builder, who takes the metaphorical design and uses it as a frequency for organizing and equivalent outer world through resonance. Once the whole outer world of living light is constructed as a stable, stationary field of organized light, it then “enters into” its own creation as the centralized, internal awareness, in order to “experience it” as a fully sensationalized flow of consciousness made “real”.

Choice - Splitting Universes by Linda Gadbois


The most basic way to become more self-aware is to remain “present” in your everyday life, where you maintain a constant awareness of everything going on around you and how it is you’re being stimulated and effected by it. Tune into your inner nature and become aware of how you feel in relation to everything around you, or to whomever it is you’re directly interacting with. With enough practice you can train your mind to fluently move back and forth between the outer reality playing out on a large scale, to the inner world of pure feeling that’s acting to project it while also being stimulated by it. Whatever is “motivating” the outer activity always brings alive the same feelings and motive internally. Through this process of shifting back and forth between your conscious, inner self, and your unconscious, outer self, you can form an awareness of not only how it is you’re being shaped energetically in association with the outer, but also how to work with controlling your own inner state so you can directly influence others and whatever is around you in an intentional manner. Keep in mind that you’re also effecting everything around you in the same way you’re being effected by it, and once you gain a clear idea of the mental state of the person you’re interacting with, and you let it determine your state for a brief period of time, “matching it”, so to speak, you can then intentionally change your state gradually, and they’ll follow your lead.

The Pentagram and the Law of Regeneration – The Quintessence, Golden Ratio of Phi, and the Holographic Nature of the Universe

The Pentagram is a geometric symbol formed as a five-pointed star contained within a circle (Monad), and typically represents what’s called the 5th element of the ether, which can also be thought of as the primary element of the “mind and soul” that precedes all material manifestations. It represents the power of the mind in being able to shape and utilize the 4 elements of the material world as a means of creating, and as the base element or etheric model which we then continue to develop to a higher, and more refined state of self-perfection, forming what’s called the Quintessence. The fifth Element represents the fluidic substance of the Etheric body which can be thought of as a holographic model that encompasses and organizes the 4 Elements of the material realm – fire (electrified plasma), air (gaseous), water (liquid), and earth (solid) – into a “living form”. It symbolizes mind-over-matter in the sense that the mind, which is the electromagnetic energy field that surrounds, permeates, and encompasses the body (commonly called the aura), has a self-organizing mechanism inherent in it that serves to organize matter into a biological form through a process of self-replication and regeneration of a single cell. The initial cell contains all the information necessary for constructing the entire body along with a holographic blueprint that tells it where to spatially locate within the body. The original cell not only regenerates itself billions of times, each time reconfiguring the base genetic information to form a specialized function in the greater whole, but also seems to “act on itself” to assemble itself into a living biological organism.

The greater whole is comprised of the sum of its parts, and each part contains the information and image of the whole within it. In this sense, the outer world as a greater whole is produced (assembled) as a projection of the information contained within a single part, and the inner world as the part, contains the etheric blueprint for assembling the outer world into a corresponding image as a reflection of itself on a greater level. The whole is formed by taking the same group of information contained within the part, and reconfiguring it to form a unique variation of the same basic idea (pattern) on a larger and more inclusive level. What we perceive as an outer reality is formed as a projection of our own mental paradigm, formed on the inner planes of our mind. This same idea can also be understood by realizing that as we shape an idea in our mind, bringing it alive with sensation, we cause it to “vibrate” on the inner planes, forming a thematic frequency, and that frequency serves to order and organize the light of the outer world into a corresponding metaphorical pattern that reflects back to us our own mental creation. This principle is known as the holographic principle, and is represented by the pentagram because when drawn properly, the inner part of the star forms a smaller star or pentad that’s upside down in relation to the larger, outer pentad.

Pentad - pentagram

This same idea also represents the fundamental law of polarity, which is symbolized by the Triad or triangle, where two opposing aspects (two points that are on the same level) of the same thing are reconciled in forming a third element (single point of the apex) as a unified whole. All movement, which is the basis for vibration and what acts to shape an idea into a 3-dimensional form, is based on the interaction of polar opposites. Each single element, represented by the points on the star, are formed as a triad, and is what forms the infrastructure of the whole shape, where the inner and outer are mirror images of each other on a smaller and larger scale at the same time. What we call the “4 elements”, are really 2 elements, fire and water, which combine to produce the third element of air, and air forms the finer atmosphere (etheric body) of what becomes a solid form (physical body). This same principle operates through DNA to produce a biological being by taking two strands (male and female) or sequences of genetic information (memory) and combining them to form a third sequence as the blueprint for producing a new variation (offspring) as a unique configuration. This forms the basis for what’s called the “Three in One law”, where a single entity is comprised of three aspects that each play a different role and function in creating and maintaining a greater whole. Any single being has a dual nature, formed as electric and magnetic forces that act as a form of “switching mechanism” for turning on some information, while turning off other information, forming a new configuration that expresses in new and original ways. As we interact with the world around us we’re constantly shaping it into a mirror image of ourselves based on what stands out and is used to form our experience, and what goes unnoticed, and is therefore left out. What we refer to as our etheric blueprint can be thought of as being equivalent to our mental paradigm, which is comprised of memory that’s synthesized into a single model or archetypal matrix. Our mental model forms the etheric blueprint we use for organizing, growing, and regenerating ourselves throughout our lifetime.

The Fibonacci Sequence of the Golden Ratio

All growth and regeneration takes place through a natural process symbolized by what’s called the Fibonacci Sequence of the Golden Ratio. These principles represent the natural processes used as a means of growing ourselves through a fundamental process of adaptation and modification. We act initially to produce new experiences by perceiving the outer world through our paradigm, reshaping it into a new variation of an ongoing theme, and then we integrate the experience back into the mental model that birthed it as memory, where it acts to evolve it based on any new information acquired. We grow ourselves systematically throughout our life by producing new experiences of a common theme that are accumulated and built up over time as memory of ourselves attained through our own mental projections. This process demonstrates the harmony and beauty inherent in the relationship between the part and the whole, between our inner self and our outer world, which are formed as a mirror image of each other. Symmetry (duality) and harmony (resonance) are an essential part of all natural phenomena. The Fibonacci Sequence is where you take any two numbers and add them together to create a new number as their sum total, then add the last one in relationship to the total, to get a new total, and so on. Example: 0 + 1 =1; 1 + 1 = 2; 1 + 2 = 3; 2 + 3 = 5; 3 + 5 = 8; 5 + 8 = 13; 8 + 13 = 21; 13 + 21 = 34;  and so on. Once you develop a whole sequence, the relationship as the ratio between the last and the second to last, comes out close to Phi, which is represented by the number 1.618. This can be understood in the practical sense by realizing that the most recent past, combined with the present as a modification, combine to form the basis for the future. We grow through life by first producing new variations of our life theme (archetypal makeup), and then by integrating them back into our model as a means of evolving ourselves to a new level of expression.

Phi - Golden Ratio

Five represents the Phi relationship through halving and doubling, demonstrated by the relationship of 2 + 3 = 5. The relationship between the 2 and 3 is one of symmetry, because if you take the 2 and divide it into equal parts of 1, then add the part (1) to the whole (2), you get 3. Three is formed as one and a half of two. All growth and development throughout the natural world comes about through a symmetrical process of halving and doubling (self-replicating as the means of growing), represented by the Golden Ratio, and the mathematical relationship of Phi. You don’t want to think of Phi as a number, per se, but as the relationship that exists between the parts and the whole, both of which exist in harmony with each other on different scales, levels, and magnitudes at the same time. All parts exist in a harmonious ratio to each other as half’s and doubles. The cellular structure of a living organism, for example, grows through a generative process of a single cell dividing itself in half (self-replicating) to produce a twin or double, and then continues to grow through a process of doubling and multiplying. One cell divides to become 2 cells, and then doubles to become 4, and doubles again to become 8, and again to become 16, then 32, 64, 128, and so on.

Symbolic Significance of the Star

The star has always been the symbol of excellence, power, and authority. It’s used in rating systems, military ranking, fame as stardom, excellence as superstars, and conveys a deep seated association with excellence, brilliance, and superiority. In many spiritual traditions it was the symbol used to ward off evil. An upright star with the single tip triangle at the top center, with the other four at angles below it, represents the soul’s ability to master the 4 Elements of material existence which require it to resist evil. The Pentagram reversed, with the 4 Elements above the single tip triangle at the bottom, represents the material elements controlling and using the mind to create. The devil (lived spelt backwards) is an archetype that evolved out of the mythological god called “Pan”. Pan is typically portrayed as being part human and part animal, usually depicted as having two horns (divided mind), red hair (passionate), a human torso with goats body from the waist down (sexual organs), with hooves and a tail, and represented the lustful fertility of nature inherent in “animal instincts” and the process mating and regeneration. When this energy is allowed to run freely without exercising restraint born out of good judgment, it’s known to induce an intense feelings of “panic” (anxiety) or “pandemonium” (disorder and confusion), that was commonly thought of as having “inner demons” or being possessed by evil spirits. Not so much in the sense of what we normally think of as being demonic, and therefor evil, but more as raw animal-like qualities that eventually take control of our mind and will, producing equivalently deranged emotions, perverted thoughts, and immoral behaviors, which act to degrade the soul by becoming more animal-like in nature. A reversed pentagram can also represent the divine soul’s descent into an animal body, where it becomes corrupted with perverted qualities commonly associated with primal instincts and behaviors driven by negative emotions.

Inverted pentagram

The symbol of the Pentad (created by connecting the outer tips of the star together with straight lines), represents a doorway that leads to parallel dimensions of the astral (star) plane. This is the symbol used to represent a “stargate” that leads to higher dimensions of consciousness which we can only pass through while inhabiting an animal body by raising our own mental vibration through a process of self-purification. As we develop our ability to control our own lower nature governed by animal passions (4 elements of the material world), a form of “rebirth” takes place as a form of spiritual ascension. The Pentad corresponds to the throat chakra of the subtle body, where thoughts are formed into word-pictures that are resonated on the inner planes, calling forth a corresponding outer reality. Words that are formed into sensationalized pictures in our imagination, fill us with a desire to experience them (heart chakra), which acts to generate an emotion in response to it (solar plexus), which becomes the motivating force for how we express it (arousal – sexual chakra), in producing an outer experience of it (root chakra). As we speak, we systematically call forth the reality of our thoughts. The throat chakra acts as the gateway between the higher world of pure mind and thought, and the material world of sensation and experience. Once we form a clear understanding of how it is we call forth and determine our own life experiences, we can begin using the power of imagination to shape and direct the natural forces of the material plane and gain control over our own lower nature. This is the basis for learning how to master our own mind and body in the pursuit of personal excellence.

Dreaming into Being - the chakras of the subtle body

All regeneration comes from a “seed” that contains a pattern that grows by producing more of the same pattern on many different scales and levels, called fractal patterns. These self-replicating fractal patterns multiply through a process of growth and development where a part reproduces to form a new whole. We not only reproduce physically by bearing children with the same appearance and character as we have, but also emotionally, psychologically, and perceptually, as a product and outgrowth of our mental paradigm. Our model of the world, as a dynamic pattern of interwoven memories, meaning, beliefs, values, preferences, tendencies, temperament, and so on, systematically produce our inner and outer reality as fractals of each other. Our mental model is a metaphorical pattern that forms every aspect of our inner and outer reality as being comprised of the same idea, formed on a smaller and larger scale at the same time. When we draw a star, the center of the star forms another Pentad and a smaller scale that’s a reversed (polarized), mirror image. The shape of the Pentad or pentagon is formed by connecting all of the outer points of the star with straight lines. The same shape is produced inwardly at the center, where another star can be drawn upside down, producing another Pentagram on an even smaller scale. This represents the holographic effect of the outer and inner being formed from the same pattern at different scales and interwoven levels as parallel planes that blend together in forming a larger cohesive dimension.

Fractal patterns

The spiritual, invisible realm of pure subtle (scalar) energy, forms the electromagnetic field of the etheric body as a hologram (highly organized field of information), which acts as a spatial blueprint for organizing and forming both the physical body and outer reality of the body, as the same “entity” formed on multiple levels and interlaced dimensions at the same time. This idea is represented by the 5th element of the etheric body, produced by coalescing the 4 elements of the material plane into a single entity as an outer body of light that serves as a vehicle for acquiring experiences of itself as an entire reality. Likewise, the inner reality of our thoughts and visions form the perceptual lens we look through to see the same archetypal idea playing out around us as a greater theme that provides us with the basis for attaining experiences of ourselves through our own mental projection. Our mental model serves as a vibratory frequency and etheric template that’s mentally superimposed over the outer environment and used to (re)form it to be a correspondence of our inner reality, shaped as a more inclusive and complex pattern that sets the stage necessary for acquiring experiences of ourselves through our own mental projection. What we perceive as a greater reality is formed through a dynamic layering of holographic fractal patterns formed on multiple levels and scales simultaneously in forming what we experience as a single reality.

Phi symbolizes the symmetrical process of regeneration which is achieved by a single entity dividing itself into two equal parts as a means of multiplying and forming the same metaphorical pattern on multiple scales and levels at the same time, all of which are proportionately of the same ratio. While Phi is usually thought of as a number (1.618), it can be more accurately thought of as a relationship a single entity forms with different aspects of itself that manifest in different ways and on different levels in forming a single reality. Every aspect that makes up our outer reality is reflecting back to us an inner aspect of our character and psychological makeup. It represents the relationship formed between the part and the whole, as a proportionately smaller version, and the whole with a part, all of which are of the same nature, characteristics, and type (classification). Phi represents the “ideal” as the “Golden Ratio”, where different sequences become more exact at different scales. It represents an “ideal” (excellence) as a core value. A value that becomes a self-replicating rhythm, like mirrors facing each other, where the image becomes smaller and smaller each time it’s reflected. You don’t have to be able to see or know the whole in order to understand it, because the part resembles the whole, and operates by the same values and principles.

Pentagram - five elements

The Quintessence is a term used to describe a state of perfection formed as an “ideal”, achieved through a consistent process of regenerating yourself to a higher and more refined level of consciousness. This process of spiritual regeneration is undertaken through the principles represented by the Fibonacci Sequence and the Golden Ratio of Phi, as a natural process of growth and development that’s self-administered and self-regulated. We work with our etheric body (mental model), which forms the vibratory frequency that replicates itself on different scales to produce what we experience as an outer reality, and our “self” as an intrinsic part of that reality, to transform it by consistently producing new types of experience. As we integrate new experiences of ourselves we upgrade and evolve the memory of ourselves that form our mental model. Our inner model acts to project the outer world as a reflection of itself on a larger and more inclusive scale, which is then absorbed as the means of “knowing ourselves” through our own creation, and molded back into the model that birthed it, evolving it according to any new variations formed. The outer is always acting on the inner to grow and concentrate it, and the inner forms the seed that produces the outer as continuous reflection. They exist in exact proportion to each other as the same idea being coordinated and played out on different scales at the same time. Our subtle body is an electromagnetic field formed as a hologram that vibrates at a particular frequency, and serves as a spatial blueprint for growing and developing the physical body as a 3-D biological form, through a consistent process of cellular regeneration. The cell contains the information of the whole as genetic composition, which is comprised of two complementary aspects that combine to form a new matrix of information by matching 3 out of 4 codons in each sequence. Each part is produced by forming different combinations of the same information, based on what’s “turned on” and what’s “turned off”, to form a sequence that performs a specialized role and function in the operation of a greater whole.

The pentagram represents the Hermetic axiom of “the higher and lower, and inner and outer as being comprised of the same thing”, and the etheric body as the seed or core the forms the outer reality as a hologram. Our inner nature, formed out of a formula of qualities and characteristics, forms the informational basis for producing our outer world of experience. The inner and outer are formed as extensions of each other, formed on different scales and magnitudes at the same time. What we perceive as existing outside of us, is a direct metaphorical reflection of what exists inside of us, and forms the basis necessary for “experiencing ourselves” through our own mental projection. As above, so below, as within, so without, in the miraculous workings of the One thing. The Pentagram represents our creative power to act as an authority in our own life, to develop ourselves into an ideal that simultaneously changes the outer reality and how we experience ourselves within and as a fundamental part of that reality. All of which we are created through the dynamic relationship of the mind (spirit) with the 4 Elements of the material world, which are formed and exist as a part of the same vibratory model as a frequency.
