The Difference between the Personality of Our Lower Nature and Identity Formed by Our Higher Nature

All ideas have to be formed into a working concept in order to understand them in the practical sense, so in order to comprehend this idea we have to form a clear understanding of our Triune nature, and how the different aspects of our mind operate on different levels or planes to perform different functions in creating the same overall, unified reality. We all have what we call 3 aspects of our mind and self (soul) that manifest in the fourth element of our material body. This idea is what’s also called the “3 in 1 Law”, which is 3 aspects that form One Essence, also known as the Triad or Trinity, often represented as a person with 3 heads and faces on a single body. One person is comprised of three fundamental aspects that exist on higher and lower levels of the same continuum or Astral Sheath, which can be thought of as a “scale” (gradation) that moves between a high and low vibration, much like the musical scale and light spectrum. This idea is also represented by the 4 states of matter, which is a process of coagulating invisible forces to form a solid body. This is a fundamental process of formation that makes an invisible force visible through an outer image formed out of astral light, and is the same process we use internally to shape an invisible idea into an image within the faculty of our imagination. The 4 states of matter are different stages in the development of a solid form, which are electrified (charged) plasma, gaseous, liquid, and solid. Again, these aren’t 4 different things, but 4 “states” as phases in developing the same thing. This is how nothing becomes something.

These are different “states” of the same thing, which function as a “frequency”. These states also represent the 4 aspects of the self, known as the Superconscious, conscious, subconscious, and physical body. Our Superconscious can also be thought of as our universal self (archetypal matrix), our conscious mind our “evolving ego” or Higher Self, and our subconscious our “personal ego”, or lower self. The term “ego” is synonymous with “identity”, which is the “I” and “I Am”, which can be more accurately stated as “I am becoming”, because the soul is never fixed or finished but is in a constant state of self-development through natural growth cycles and is “self-creating” and eternal in nature. Our lower self, which is comparable to our subconscious and is also what’s called the consciousness of our body, is “non-creative” in terms of being able to “create itself”, and is governed by the natural processes associated with the animal kingdom, and is primarily driven by instinct which comes as emotional impulses that form reactive behaviors.

While we’re in our physical existence, we typically only work with the two lower aspects of ourselves in terms of our daily life, which are the conscious and subconscious aspects of our mind. This is because the range of vibration that flows in a descending and ascending motion between higher and lower planes requires a “medium” or middle point (range of vibration) to move through that serves as a “transducer” for stepping-down the higher vibration and translating into a lower frequency where it can be conceived by the lower aspect of the subconscious. The movement of conscious energy between higher and lower planes comes through “resonance” as “sympathetic induction”, and the middle mind vibrates at a “range” that can reach the lower vibration (level) of the higher plane in order to “draw in” the energy of that plane, assimilate and transmute it, and then project it into the highest level of the lower mind, where it can be conceived through a form of transmission or communication. While in our physical body, governed by our subconscious, we’re “unaware” of our higher mind and our ability to create ourselves using our higher mind, and we live primarily out of the story that emerges from our formative conditioning. While manifest in our physical body we lose all “memory” of who we truly are in terms of our eternal soul and higher, creative mind, and come to believe that we are our body and exist as a form of intelligent animal.

While in the plane of formation (incarnate in a body) our conscious and subconscious are polarized aspects of each other and work in unity to produce what we perceive as our outer world and reality. Our conscious mind is our masculine-positive aspect and our subconscious is our feminine-negative aspect of the “same mind”. These two operate in polarity with other as complementary opposites on both the same plane, as an “inner and outer”, and as an interaction between higher and lower planes. On the higher plane of the conscious mind, it draws in the archetypal ideas from the higher plane of the superconscious, assimilates them into its existing identity, while simultaneously projecting them into the lower plane as “pictures” that act to “seed” the subconscious with new ideas. The conscious mind forms an idea into an image comprised of astral light (primordial matter) and introduces it into the etheric body of the lower self, which is a more concentrated and denser form of astral light that takes on a more fluid-like form and motion. The Higher Self is what originally forms and projects the etheric double used to inform the lower self, and then uses it as the means of regulating its own evolution by introducing memory that serve as metaphorical themes that are injected into the lower mind where they function in the same way memory does.

The Two Aspects of Our Lower Nature

While many people have been taught and formed a belief that our “conscious mind” is the aspect of our material mind that’s self-aware and is what perceives the outer world being formed and maintained by our subconscious, this is merely an “aspect” of our true conscious mind that’s contained “within” our subconscious, where it’s birthed fully within the material plane through a natural process of growth and development. Our true conscious mind exists outside of the material plane on a higher or greater level, and just as the conscious aspect of our mind is contained within our subconscious, the entire lower plane of what we call “reality” is “contained within” our higher conscious mind, which is the aspect of us that’s creating and maintaining it. This idea is symbolized through the Yin-Yang symbol, where the masculine contains an aspect of the feminine within it, and the feminine contains an aspect of the masculine within it, and together they form a greater whole as a unification or coherent state. This idea is also represented in the concept of the “Madonna (Mother) who births a male child (Son)”, where the mother is also a virgin, which simply means that the child was conceived from a higher (spiritual) plane and level of consciousness, rather than a product of the material plane. This is giving us a clue to the fact that our conscious mind is not of this plane and is actually an aspect of our “higher self”, which is also called the “Lord” (Tiphareth of the Kabbalah) and is ultimately our “savior”.

The lower self of our subconscious is also referred to as our animal-nature, which is born into the world as a product of our genetic make-up where we’re naturally imbued with a “personality”. Our subconscious is also what’s referred to as the “group mind” of the “collective Unconscious” where we exist as a “species” where the only thing that sets us apart from each other and makes us unique is our personality. This is easy to understand when you simply look at dogs, for example, where all dogs are dog-like and display the same type of general behaviors and work through a “pack mentality” where they function as a single unit, yet each also has their own personality and unique way of doing the same behaviors. Our personality is something we’re born with and it comes in a completely natural fashion. Most of our natural behaviors and idiosyncrasies, like our physical appearance, stems from our genetic make-up where we inherent similar tendencies from our parents and ancestors as inherent or group memory.  It’s not something we create intentionally but comes in an automatic and spontaneous way where we don’t have to think about it or make a decision about how we’re going to be.

Etheric Double

We’re born exclusively into our subconscious mind with a pre-formed personality, and as we begin growing and maturing, our conscious mind begins slowly developing. It’s an aspect of us that starts off in a latent and potential state and gradually becomes more active and prominent as we develop and mature. Our conscious mind starts becoming active around the age of 6 or 7, which is when we begin “thinking”, developing ideas in our imagination, and problem solving. At around 12 to 14 years, our conscious mind starts becoming even more prominent where we begin thinking for ourselves, forming our own ideas about things that are different from our parents, and we start “coming into ourselves” in terms of forming our “identity”. We do this by trying on all kinds of styles, ideas, and ways of being to see how they feel. We begin forming an image ourselves as being different from our parents and siblings, and we begin making our own decisions for ourselves that lead us into all kinds of new situations and experiences. As we begin having new experiences that came from our own decisions, we sense ourselves through our experiences by how we identify with them and begin shaping ourselves accordingly. Our identity begins naturally taking shape out of our personality in a completely harmonious and congruent way.

In the energetic sense, our higher self is formed of astral light in its gaseous state, and our lower self is comprised of the same light in a more concentrated form of astral light that moves and morphs more like a fluid that’s very malleable. The Higher Self is what originally forms and projects the etheric-double of the lower self as a form of blueprint for constructing an equivalent material reality, and then acts to regulate and evolve it by creating “thought-forms” that represent metaphorical themes that work in the same way “memory” does. If you simply observe the nature of your thoughts compared to your actual memories, you’ll realize that on the inner planes of your mind they appear the same way. This is because they’re both created the same way in our imagination. Our memories don’t just come or form by themselves, we actually create our memories by how we think about the events of our life that were emotionally impacting to form them into a story that takes shape through the meaning we gave them. While the subconscious operates almost exclusively out of memory in the same way animals’ function through instinct, it doesn’t have the ability to “create” its own memory and has to be given memory as the means of creating new types of experiences. Memory is created as a function of the higher mind which uses it as the means for directing the subconscious in an automatic fashion. Our higher conscious creates itself by forming memories of itself that it gives to the subconscious as a means of experiencing itself.

3 selves

The lower self absorbs the soul memory being projected into it by the higher self, which is “reflected within” as an “inner vision” or dream-like image, that’s then gestated by building it into its current mental model, which is formed out of synthesized memory, modifying it to be a natural and harmonious part of its outer perception of reality. Once it can be perceived as a natural part of our reality we can form an experience of it, and it becomes a catalyst for producing a whole series of correlated experiences which propagate naturally out of it, setting a new phase or stage of development into motion. The subconscious of our body is our lower, animal soul which is not creative in the sense of being able to generate a “new idea” as an imaginary thought process, yet is the aspect of our mind that builds the thought into a corresponding material formation through our ability to “perceive it” within the outer world of our environment. This is the aspect of our mind that’s a part of the “group mind” of mass consciousness where all our activities are emotionally driven through natural inclinations. It functions out of memory as instinct, prompted by emotional impulses, and maintains a consistent perception of reality out of memory formed into habits.

Our personality is formed out of our genetic memory that’s not only comprised of a collective group of qualities that we share in common with all our family members that cause us to form the same natural behaviors, moods, and activities, but also contains the memory of our ancestors “experiences” that were emotionally charged and intense in some way. We can inherit memory of the traumas, obsessions, and emotional dynamics played out as the life experiences formed by our ancestral bloodline. This is the “automated” aspect of us that comes naturally without having to think, analyze, reason or make a decision. This is the part that’s “mortal” and dies with the body. Each time our higher soul incarnates into a new body it acquires a different personality and life situation that’s ideally suited for its identity to naturally take form out of through a natural process of growth and development. This is the part of us that serves as a vessel, vehicle, and house for our higher self to inhabit as a means of taking on a physical existence that’s necessary in order to “experience itself”, and then creates itself through how it associates with its own self-produced experiences.

Our subconscious is commonly associated with and represented as being our “heart”, and when we think using our heart (body consciousness) it comes as a lower form of intuition which is based on all of our experiences formed as feelings and memory, because all our experiences are permanently recorded within the etheric body as memory, and memory is the basis for instinct. When we’re living out of our lower nature from a semi-unconscious state, we live out of the story we formed about ourselves through our formative conditioning as memories of the past that are always playing out in our mind as habitual thoughts and internal processes that are driven primarily by feelings and emotions, where we simply repeat the patterns of the past as a way of creating the present to be of the same nature as a “type” of experience. We use the past as the basis for the ”story” we start telling ourselves, which was formed before our rational mind was fully developed, and out of our story we form our identity. This is how we form what’s commonly called our “ego” as an identification with our past, personality, material belongings and the social position we find ourselves in or work to achieve, that acts to “bond” our soul to its own material form. This idea can be more accurately called our “false ego” because it’s created through a form of false identity, and our higher soul isn’t a physical body or material reality of our body, it’s the essence that inhabits the body as a means of experiencing and evolving itself through it’s own mental creation.  

When we fail to recognize that we also have a higher, conscious mind that’s willful in nature and able to create by directing our own thoughts and making decisions that break habitual patterns while forming new ones in their place, we begin identifying with our lower nature and how we’re trained and shaped by others and our life situation, and never learn how to step into our higher mind and ability to create ourselves in whatever way we choose. Shaping ourselves according to our unconscious conditioning forms what we can call our false identity, where we believe we’re our body and personality, and as a result we render ourselves “mortal” in the sense that “we” – who we are experientially – dies with our body and life situation. Our soul is our identity, which can also be thought of as our character, and when we don’t wake up and remember who we are in terms of being our higher mind bestowed with the ability to decide who we’re going to be and what kind of story we’re going to tell by how we live our life, we remain locked into our animal, physical, unconscious existence. Because we only know ourselves to be our body, when we die and our soul separates from our body, we don’t “exist” in the sense of knowing who we are without a body, and we immediately look to reincarnate as a means of “existing”. Only the part of us that we create using the higher capacity of self-realization, choice, and will, remains immortal and transcends the material plane after death of the body, because while in a conscious state we’re fully aware that we are the “creator”, rather than the “creation”, and it’s only the creation that dies.

3rd eye meditation

Our conscious mind is the part of us that’s creative, and not only what “informs” the personality of its own material creation, but also has the ability to grow and evolve it by “seeding” its own lower self. This aspect of our soul exists on a higher or outer plane and is what’s not only producing the entire lower plane as a mental construct of itself, but also maintaining and orchestrating it, while never fully “entering” into it. It’s the aspect of our mind that’s projecting the lower plane as a reflection of “itself”, with the term “self” referring to pure mind and spirit, rather than a body with a personality. Once “we” leave our body, we exist outside of and apart from it as a “mental state” or energetic field of highly organized information (synthesized memory) that remains self-aware, self-conscious, and self-sustaining. The only purpose our body serves is in providing our true, higher soul with an “avatar” it can use as the means of experiencing itself through its own mental projection. It does this by impregnating its own subconscious with a conscious, self-aware aspect that’s slowly birthed within its own creation as a means of perceiving it from within it, and forms what we have come to call our conscious mind. The conscious mind of our body can be more accurately referred to as our “self-conscious mind” because it’s only “aware” of the material world and body in which its born. This is why we naturally “perceive” our “self” as being our body rather than the creator of our entire reality within which we live as a fundamental part and have our being.

Our higher, creative mind is the aspect of us that creates by “thinking”. On the higher level of our mind we create in the most basic sense by drawing on an “idea” from an even higher plane of universal archetypes, where we use that idea to form a corresponding reality within our imagination. The idea exists on the higher plane in a latent, unformed state of pure potential, and is turned into a possibility by how it’s “adapted and conformed” to the already existing paradigm being used to project and maintain the lower plane, where it’s transformed into a personalized version of the same idea. Ideas exist in their raw form as metaphors that produce reality as a theme that’s designed to give you a certain type of feeling. The conscious mind is what gives form to an invisible idea by imbuing it with sensory attributes that cause it to come alive with sensation, causing it to vibrate as an astral formation, clothing it with light that makes it perceivable internally as a sensory reality that acts to naturally invoke a correlated emotion in response to it when it’s viewed by the subconscious mind. The vibrating, sensationalized idea formed as an image that represents a particular type of experience is then projected into the subconscious, where it acts as a seed that begins growing within an ovum, and is systematically grown into a natural part of the existing outer reality.

Interefering waves

This is what quantum physics is referring to when it states that all ideas exist as and within a greater waveform, and creation comes by “collapsing” the wave into a single possibility, where it becomes clothed in an outer garment of “light”. Reality exists in a fundamental state of “probability”. This is also the principle described in wave-particle duality, where an idea exists simultaneously as both a particle and wave. On the higher plane of the universal mind all ideas exist as a wave, comprised of infinite possibilities in their potential state, and the conscious mind of our Ego Soul, chooses an idea which exists as a “metaphorical theme” and draws it into the imagination where it’s modified to be a natural aspect of its existing formation. It’s shaped into a 3-dimentional material form through sensory attributes that bring it alive with “qualities”, forming its character, out of which natural behaviors and operations form through the activity it naturally takes on.

 Our lower, material reality exists in what we can think of as an “embryonic state” that’s constantly being seeded with new information that facilitates how it naturally develops as it moves through different cycles. Our reality, like our body, is undergoing a constant state of evolution facilitated by forming new types of experiences that are translated into memory on the higher plane of the conscious mind. Our immortal soul is comprised of “memory” attained through its own experiences and maintained as a permanent record within the astral field of light, also called the Akasha field or “Book of Life”. Every aspect of our own creation is translated into a permanent record where it forms the basis for our karma, which becomes the “memory” for all proceeding incarnations. Our karmic seed is formed out of the memory formed through how we experienced our own creation, and is what forms our basic personality for all succeeding lifetimes as our inner nature, character, and predisposition. We’re born into a life situation where the same basic model is activated, established through our conditioning as our family dynamic, and set into motion as the basis for a continuous process of soul-evolution performed by how we use complementary aspects of our mind to grow ourselves through our own creation.

The Law of the Tetrad – How we Manifest and then Act to Evolve our own Manifestation

In Sacred Geometry what’s known as the Tetrad represents the principle of material manifestation. The Tetrad corresponds with the number “4”, represented by a cube, because it’s the fourth principle to evolve out of the primary principle of the Monad, and in science “4” represents the material world. Naturally, it also represents the “4 states of matter” (electrified plasma, gaseous, liquid, and solid), and the idea that all material form is created by how the mind shapes the 4 Elements of the Astral Plane into an image, picture, or scenario of some kind in the faculty of the imagination. The geometric shape associated with the Tetrad is a diamond, which is formed as the downward “reflection” of the Triad (triangle), and when rotated 90 degrees, forms a square. When this square is illuminated with spirit (the vitalizing force), it forms into a “cube” as a 3-dimensional reality (hologram), also referred to in some systems as “Metatron’s Cube”. A cube is comprised of 6 faces, 8 points, and 12 lines, which provides us with a mathematical formula of universal principles that serve as a form of instruction in how to use our imagination as the basis for not only manifesting reality in its primary form, but also the means necessary for transforming and evolving it through a natural process of growth and development.

Triad - Vesica Piscis

The principle associated with the number 6, is represented in the subtle body by the 6th chakra of the 3rd eye, which is located near the center of the brain, and is represented symbolically as being in the center of the forehead. If we draw lines connecting our two physical eyes with the higher point located in the center of our forehead, it forms a triangle. The apex of the triangle marks the approximate location of the pineal gland, which is the endocrine gland associated with the subtle organ of the 3rd eye. This forms the Triad, symbolic of the 3 aspects of the mind in unity as a “relationship” that operates between 2 parallel planes (a higher and lower), which are polarized aspects of each other, and combine to form a single unit as a coherent reality. The symbol traditionally drawn on the forehead to represent the 3rd eye usually resembles the shape of a woman’s vagina (or fish symbol), which is symbolic of the “cosmic birth canal”, also referred to as the “Vesica Piscis” of the Dyad, through which the seeds planted from a higher level of the conscious mind gestate within the womb of the lower mind, where they’re eventually birthed as a material formation.

Tetrad Vesica Piscis

The Dyad represents the “womb” in which the Triad is formed on the inner plane of the imagination as the etheric-double, which serves as a holographic blueprint that forms the energetic structure (matrix) used to electrify, order, spatially organize, and hold together “essence” (astral substance), also called “Prima Materia”, which is then vitalized with our magnetism (life energy), causing it to “vibrate” at a frequency associated with the form. This vibrating holographic image is then used as the “lens” the soul “looks through” as the means of seeing the same idea being reflected back to it on a greater scale as a whole outer reality (sphere). The idea of the inner forming the basis for the outer, is represented symbolically by the Monad, formed as a dot (black circle) centered within a greater sphere or circle of the same kind (white circle). These circles are polarized aspects of each other, with the smaller black one in the center representing the inner world of concentrated thought and the larger white one representing the outer projection of the inward formation to form a greater reality of the same kind and type. The center is the negative, magnetic pole of our inner mind, and the outer is the positive, electric projection of the inner, forming the same idea on different scales and levels simultaneously.

Triad

The Dyad is the “identical twin” of the Monad and is formed by the Monad reproducing itself and then projecting itself outward to form a mirror image of itself, creating the illusion of itself as (in) another, or as a greater reality formed out of the same “nature” and essence, which provides the setting and basis necessary to “perceive” and “experience” itself. This principle also represents the natural relationship that’s formed between what we perceive as the inner world of thought and the outer world of reality, where reality is formed as a reflection of our own thoughts about it. We’re located within the central axis of our own higher mind, creating the illusion of the outer being separate from the inner, yet they’re both an intrinsic part of the same field of organized information (mental paradigm) being formed, held in place, and animated through our collective memory. The dot in the center represents being centrally located (as our body) within the greater reality of our own mind, which appears to expand equally in all directions at once, forming our perspective of the world as “being out there”, further enhancing the illusion of being separate from our own outer creation. The principle of the Monad is also represented by a “solar system”, where we are the central sun (Son) that produces the electromagnetic, gravitational field in which all the planetary bodies orbit as the fundamental part of a larger, organized system.

Triad becoming Tetrad

Pineal and the Subtle Organ of the 3rd Eye

I’m not going to try and describe the Pineal gland in anatomical terms, as great deal has already been written on this subject, but rather provide an intuitive interpretation of the principles involved in how it functions. All the subtle organs of the body are spiritual centers that operate as principles that form a complete interrelated circuit, each of which perform different functions in the operation of the greater whole. The subtle body is what forms the energetic matrix as an “aetheric medium” for electromagnetic impulses to work through the central nervous system to operate and regulate the physical body. Electrical impulses are formed by our “thoughts” which originate in our Pineal gland and form an electrical circuit that runs through our nervous system where they stimulate the associated endocrine glands throughout the body, causing them to produce chemical messengers called hormones. The hormones are then injected directly into the blood stream where they act to keep the body in the same “vibratory state” as the mind.

This is the most basic way our mind (soul) uses our body as a “vehicle” or physical channel for expressing within the physical plane in order to create experiences of its own thoughts (creation). All spiritual principles illustrate the process through which “thoughts become things”. It’s the process through which an invisible idea (archetype) in its potential state (unformed) is absorbed into the passive aspect of the mind (subconscious) where it’s systematically “adapted” (through resonance) to the existing paradigm and modified into a specialized version so it can be “built into the existing reality” in a logical and meaningful way. As an idea is absorbed into the mind and modified into a personalized version, it simultaneously acts to evolve the model its being adapted to, changing its fundamental structure to form a slightly new variation of itself. As we change the structure of our mental paradigm through the incorporation of new ideas, it also changes how the outer world appears to us. As we incorporate new ideas they’re homogenized into our everyday reality, and become a natural part of how we think about things.  

All ideas that are universal in nature exist in their original state as a form of metaphorical theme that can be used to create an infinite number of variations based on how they’re applied to unique situations. All ideas are metaphorical in nature and are transformed by the mind (paradigm-Monad) conceiving them by being remolded into a unique variation that’s pertinent to the individual as “their own creation”. Ideas serve as a “symbolic representation” that can be applied in numerous ways to different situations within the individuals daily life, where they can be molded into an infinite number of “variations” that all still hold true to the main idea as a metaphor. This principle is represented by what’s called “fractal patterns”, where a “parent pattern” produces “offspring” as variations of “itself” reformed through new combinations.

The pattern (design) forms a perceptual filter which is used to “perceive” the outer world and is what orders and reorganizes any situation (as a reality) to be of the “same nature” as the mind perceiving it. Our mental paradigm is comprised of a “dynamic system of mental filters” that all combine and work harmoniously in forming our “perceptual lens”. As we “look through” the lens of our paradigm, which vibrates at the frequency of our model, it literally activates (vibrates) and calls forth (separates and pulls out) in the world around us (the ether of the greater mind) only what “matches” our model and can be used to construct the reality of our model, where it’s reflected back to us as a mirror image. Everything that exists in the space around us that doesn’t match our model, remains inactive and fades into the background where it sets the stage for the active components to be acted out in a new way. In this way, all of what appears to be outside of us is created as a reflection of what exists inside of us, within our “mind’s eye”. Our third eye is what perceives the inner and outer as a single field of organized information that’s an extension and continuation of each other, rather than disjointed aspects that are set apart from each other and function independently of each other as a result.

All ideas that are conceived from higher planes of consciousness are “original” in nature and come as a correlation to “mental states” and are absorbed into the individual mind through resonance. We experience this as an idea that pops into our mind out of nowhere, inspiring us with a sense of excitement, where we initially grasp it through our ability to relate to it because it doesn’t originate from our ordinary way of thinking. As we begin thinking about it, we steadily develop it by shaping it with the same attributes and qualities as all other ideas of a similar nature, integrating it harmoniously into our model and reshaping it accordingly. As we integrate new ideas, we act to evolve our mental paradigm, allowing us to perceive deeper and more complex forms of reality. In a similar manner, as we take up a concentrated study of new subjects, we steadily incorporate those ideas into our model, upgrading and evolving it, while developing new abilities as a natural consequence. All ideas that come to us spontaneously from what appears to be a higher or outside source, are conceived into the mind through the third eye of the pineal gland, which contains the holographic image formed by the synthesis of all our experiences that have been translated into memory of ourselves.

All ideas that come as thoughts, regardless of whether they’re absorbed unilaterally from the material plane as other people’s ideas and opinions or attained from a higher plane of original ideas (genius), work through the fundamental Principle of Polarity. The “passive” always acts to draw in and become impregnated with the “seed” of the “active” principle, where the idea then undergoes a process of gestation (adapted and reshaped) where it’s formed into a unique version as it’s “mental offspring”. As long as we’re in a mentally active state we can’t conceive the ideas being projected or transmitted by another active mind. This is self-evident in simply observing discussions, where both people are projecting their ideas in a way that deflect and counter the other person’s point of view, and neither one is “listening” or actively taking into consideration what the other person is saying. It’s only when we cultivate an attitude of “understanding” by passively “listening” to what the other person is saying and forming it in our imagination as a possibility, that we not only come to understand the other person, but we also acquire a new perspective on the same idea.  When we take an attitude of simply listening to what someone is saying, and we “view” the idea from their perspective without needing to change it through our idea about the same thing, we act as a passive receptor of their expression, and we’re able to understand the idea in a new way, expanding our awareness and cultivating a sense of compassion. In this way we blend into their reality and form a unified whole with them, which serves to grow our own model of reality to include new ideas as a possibility for applying in new and more unique ways. If instead, we meet others with a need to be right, where we challenge and contest their ideas by arguing to defend ours, then we close ourselves down to new ways of perceiving things, and we hinder and impose stringent limitations to our own souls growth and our ability to flux and morph into constant new variations of ourselves that express as new possibilities.

Interefering waves

Sacred Geometry and the Law of the Tetrad (Manifestation)

The basic function performed naturally by the subtle organ of the “mind’s eye”, also known as the faculty of the imagination, is demonstrated through the concept of the Tetrad. The material form that the outer appearance of reality takes on, results from the “internal representation” as a “transparent perceptual lens” we “look through” as the means of perceiving the same idea as a natural part of our outer reality. It doesn’t shape the whole of reality, but simply imbues it with the attributes and qualities inherent in the representation formed, which alters how it “appears to us”. All ideas willingly taken in and developed into a detailed idea by continuing to think about them in a concentrative manner, become a self-designed perceptual filter that serves to reorder the basic elements of astral light into a new configuration that’s integrated into our paradigm and becomes a natural part of our outer environment. 

The Dyad, which represents the relationship formed between two complementary aspects of the same mind, and two planes of existence (inner and outer, upper and lower) that are polar opposites of each other, or two ideas of a similar nature combined to form a new one, serves to both birth a new idea or evolve an existing one. The Dyad is formed out of the regeneration of the Monad, which represents a single unit as a holistic and self-perpetuating entity (mind). All of what we perceive as an outer reality is but a continuation or extension of our inner reality, both of which are created through our mental paradigm (hologram). Within our mind an entire ecological system exists and is projected outward to form the same mental structure on a larger scale as a greater outer reality or mental radiation. In psychological terms we refer to this as “perception”, which is formed out of the dynamic filters inherent in and used to construct our mental paradigm. Our mental model operates as a dynamic self-generating system of “metaphorical filters” that act to “select” (vibrate) and bring forward correlated aspects of the greater outer reality, while rendering others inactive, and we form a new “version” of reality as a unique possibility. Our mind is a hologram as a mental model, where every part contains the full information of the whole, and the whole is the summation of its parts.

In Quantum Physics the Principle of the Dyad is demonstrated by an “interference pattern”, which is where a wave-form propagating through space (being projected outward), enters into relationship with “itself” (a mirror image as an opposing wave-form) in everything else (a continuation of the inner to reconstruct itself as a greater whole), where the complementary waves overlap and blend into each other (resonate), and through the process of polarization, some aspects of the waveform are canceled out and contradicted, while other aspects are amplified and multiply to form a new pattern as a variation of “itself”. This “new pattern” as a new combination of attributes that organize into a new formula, form a set of correlated mental filters which are harmonious with the existing “system of filters” (model), and becomes the “lens we look through” to perceive (order and organize) an outer reality of the same nature and kind.

The Triad, the Imagination, and the Nature of Internal Representations

As two aspects of the same mind merge into each other and form a new combination as the reconfiguration of the same qualities in different degrees and measure, it forms a new mental construct as what we can easily understand as an “internal representation” (IR), which is symbolized by the Principle of the Triad. The Dyad is formed by two overlapping Monads, where the outer circle of one is at the center of the other, forming what looks like a woman’s vagina or birth canal, called the “Vesica Piscis” or “Womb of the Universe”, and we connect the centers of each one with a horizontal line, representing their shared “inner nature”, we form two levels within the birth canal. This line divides the inner realm of the two overlapping parts into two “parallel planes” (a horizontal line represents a plane or dimension) of the “same pattern” (holographic model). A triangle is then formed on the higher plane by drawing a straight line upward from the center of each one, uniting them at the highest point (pinnacle) of their combination. This transforms a single field into parallel planes that are polarized to each other (energetically entangled).

Vesica Piscis

As an IR is formed on the inner plane of the mind as a new pattern made by combining complementary aspects in new ways, it becomes the “invisible (transparent) template” for organizing an outer reality of the same fundamental nature. What tends to cause confusion in regard to this idea is that we think the IR we form of something is abstract and literal in nature, when in fact it’s actually a symbolic representation of an idea that serves as a metaphor that expresses on various scales and planes as a cohesive “theme”. This allows it to be applied to any number of situations where it’s adapted and modified through the new combination of elements present in that situation, while still providing us with the means for creating the same “kind of experience”. On the Astral Plane of the subconscious “symbols” are “things” and represent whole realities that organize and play out as metaphorical themes. Our IR doesn’t represent an actual physical situation or particular set of circumstances, but rather implies the “type of experience” produced through that situation or set of circumstances by how we internalize it.

If we then work on the lower plane of the Vesica Piscis to draw a straight line downward from the center of each sphere to connect at the lowest central point where they combine, we form a lower triangle that’s a “reflection” or “mirror (reversed) image” of the upper triangle, forming a new shape as a combination that appears as a “diamond”. This diamond, when rotated at a ninety-degree angle, forms a square, which is the symbol used to represent the material world formed out of the 4 Elements. This represents material reality, formed on a lower plane as a continuation or extension of the imaginary reality (mental construct) formed inwardly on the upper plane of the mind. The inner/upper Triad is formed as the exaltation of the combination formed by two complementary aspects. Two aspects of the same mind (conscious and subconscious) are combined in order to produce a “functional third” as a single reality that reflects back to us the reality of our thoughts, allowing us to experience ourselves through them.

A cube is formed as a three-dimensional (holographic) square that’s comprised of 6 faces constructed with 12 lines that connect 8 points, all of which are interconnected to form the “constitution” of a greater whole. Numbers always represent principles, which all unfold out of “1” (Monad), and demonstrate the relationships inherent in the whole. If we look at the cube as being comprised of two Triads, and we combine or overlap them (just like the Dyad) in their original orientation, one pointing upward and the other pointing downward, we form a Hexad, symbolized as the “Star of David” and what’s known as the “Merkabah”, which is the “light body” that exists simultaneously between two planes, and is the means of moving between parallel dimensions. The Hexad is symbolic of the harmonious interaction of two minds (Dyad) that exist on multiple planes, and when combined form a single reality as a unification or “coherent state”. The principle symbolized by 6 as being constructed out of two 3’s (Triads), is accurately interpreted as the harmonious relationship between our subconscious and self-conscious, governed by our Higher Mind, which originates on a higher plane in a unified state as a greater whole that projects the “entire reality of the lower material plane”. The upper contains the entire holographic model as a dynamic pattern of the lower, which it serves to project as an “inner and outer reality” that provides us with the means of “experiencing ourselves” in a semi-conscious manner by how we gain a sense of ourselves through our own self-created experiences.

The Monad represents the kernel or seed that contains the full information of the whole in its latent and potential state, and the Dyad represents the “polar opposite” of the same mind, that forms two opposing poles as a division of itself, where mental energy oscillates between complementary aspects of itself, forming movement as “vibration”. The Triad represents the 3-fold nature of the mind which exists as three aspects, each with a specialized function whose interaction produces a greater cohesive whole. It’s only by dividing into complementary opposites of itself, and then projecting outward form itself to produce the illusion of “space and time”, that movement naturally occurs as an electromagnetic pulsation that simultaneously generates “luminescence”, constructing the idea into a light-form that appears as a ghost-like image, also referred to as a “photon”. This phantom image originates as an idea (metaphorical pattern) that’s clothed with essence (astral light) as a vibration that’s self-organizing, self-perpetuating, and self-sustaining. It forms the energetic blueprint for spatially organizing a corresponding material body, out of which an outer reality of an equivalent nature is simultaneously radiated. One of the most basic mistakes we make in perceiving our “self” as our “soul”, comes by thinking that we’re just our body and personality, rather than realizing we are the “entire” lower plane as the “reality in which our body has it’s being”. This is demonstrated in the symbol used to represent the Monad, as a dot within a greater sphere, and in Quantum Physics as “wave-particle duality”. The particle can behave like a wave, and the wave can be collapsed into a single particle, because they vibrate at the same frequency as a “mental state”, and it’s the “state” that organizes and sustains the physical formation.

Etheric Double

Our subtle body is not only what provides the energetic template for constructing and maintaining our physical body but is also the “medium” we work through to transform and evolve our body. Our subtle body, which is also called our etheric-double, is the medium through which communication between two parallel planes of existence transpires through a process of resonance and sympathetic induction. This can be thought of as an idea in the form of a “seed” being planted in the fertile ground of the imagination, where it  takes hold and begins growing into a new possibility for manifesting as a natural and cohesive part of the already existing reality. All transformation results from making new combinations that “re-form” the pattern being used to structure light into a coherent reality. As we incorporate new ideas, we enhance and expand our mental paradigm, which “is” our subtle blueprint for producing a corresponding material reality. Our mind is what shapes and develops our subtle organism through the absorption, integration, and expression of new ideas as a way of being in the world. We can come to realize that ideas formed in our mind as “symbolic representations” for producing a particular type of experience are the means through which we grow and transform ourselves.

Reshaping Our Model of the World

Whatever ideas we take in and accept as fact, forming a belief around them, we make real through our ability to perceive them in our daily life. If we look at this process through the principles that operate through the subtle energy centers of the body, we can realize that as an idea is conceived and absorbed into our mind, we shape it into an image or reality in our imagination based on the concept we form out of it as an adaptation to our model, and how we develop it by continuing to think about. As we shape an idea in our imagination, we simultaneously form internal dialogue around it as a narrative or story we tell ourselves about it, which becomes the basis for what we say to others. As we think about, talk about, and describe or explain an idea to others, we call forth that same idea in their imagination, and it simultaneously connects us with that same idea in everything around us. As we shape an idea in our mind by imbuing it with sensory details, turning it into an internal experience, we simultaneously generate an emotional response to our own thoughts, and the emotion correlated with the imaginary idea becomes the motivating force for all our actions and behaviors that come naturally through how we express it. The emotion married to the thought-form, determines how we express that idea and what kind of experience we produce by how its expressed. What we call “reality” is formed out of our own imaginary emotional thoughts.

Merkabah

As we produce a reality out of our thoughts as an “experience”, we then uptake our own self-produced experiences, and integrate them back into the model that served to birth and give life to them, forming them into a “memory” of ourselves, and evolving our memory-based paradigm as a result. A memory “is” an internal representation that we naturally use as the means for consistently producing more and more of the same type of experiences. There’s a continuous “feedback loop” created as the interaction between the inner and outer, as well as between the higher and lower. As we take an idea and gestate it to produce a novel variation as an outer experience, we then reabsorb and integrate the experiences produced by translating them into more of the same kind of memory. As we evolve our mental paradigm as a parent-pattern, we evolve our outer reality in the same manner, because our paradigm is what forms our perception of reality. The inner is the “cause” that produces the outer as an “effect”, and then the outer effect produced switches polarity and becomes the cause for stimulating an equal inner effect. This cyclical cause and effect movement between the inner and outer, self and another, forms a self-perpetuating and self-sustaining rhythm that systematically upgrades and permanently modifies the etheric-blueprint that served to set it in motion in the first place. The mind is a self-constructing and self-sustaining system that “acts on itself” to evolve itself based on which aspects of itself as “qualities” it develops through a relationship of some kind that it forms with itself in another.

Self-Realization and Empowerment – The Art of Keeping Yourself Separate from Others

One of the things that make fundamental ideas of what we call “reality” elusive and difficult to understand in the most practical sense, is because reality exists as a basic form of paradox. A paradox is formed when two ideas exist simultaneously as a part of the same reality while appearing to contradict and disprove each other, yet at the same time, both are true and usually result from taking a different perspective in considering the same phenomena. Reality itself exists as what we can call a “single reality”, where we appear to be one with everything around us and exist as a “part” or aspect of that same reality, while at the same time we experience our self as being separate, alone, and often independent of everything around us. While we perceive ourselves as being here, and another person is over there, and there’s space and distance between us that separate us from one another, at the same time we realize that we’re always being influenced by the other person not only energetically in terms of a “feeling” we get from them, but also by their physiology, demeanor, and what they say and do. Especially when their behavior is somehow directed towards us, and their comments are “about us”.

In order to understand this idea in a practical way, we have to break it down into elementary terms and form it in our mind as a working concept. What we refer to as our “self” is also our mind, which is the energetic field we emanate that vibrates at the frequency of our “mental model” (paradigm) which is constructed out of all our memories which operate as a form of “semi-closed system”. All our perceptions, thoughts, feelings, emotions, and behaviors result from and are what act to express our mental paradigm as a means of forming a consistent experience of reality. Our mental paradigm exists as a kind of holographic model where every aspect (beliefs, values, preferences, and memories) exists in harmony with every other aspect and each serve to support and validate each other. Our model of the world is a “coherent model” as a “mental state” that forms the “lens we look through” to perceive others and the world around us.

Our mental paradigm exists as a cohesive model of interrelated ideas that are all melded together through a process of adaptation that modifies them into a personal variation, which then systematically emerge out of each other through a process of association. It forms a dynamic living pattern which vibrates at a specific frequency. All vibration has both a pattern (dynamic model) and a self-organizing mechanism inherent in it. This means that whatever our vibratory frequency is as a holographic model “acts on” everything around us to select (activate and call forth) only the information that’s of a similar nature and acts to assimilate the selected bits of information into a congruent pattern that serves as a variation (modified version) of itself. We only see in others what’s like us, and we use this reflection of ourselves as the means of perceiving and experiencing them. We always act on everything around us to “remake it” in our image while imbuing it mentally with the same qualities and characteristics that we possess intrinsically. Our mind works through the Law of Vibration and creates the reality of our thoughts through resonance and sympathetic induction.

In order to understand how resonance works in the most basic sense, we have to create a model that serves to demonstrate how it functions. Imagine yourself standing in a room with two guitars that are both “tuned” using the “same” tuning device and set them across the room from each other. If you pluck the string of a “C” note on one, it will vibrate the same “C” string on the other. The vibration of the one being plucked (the active aspect) “enters into” and vibrates that same note in the other (the passive receiver), and they vibrate in harmony with each other. As they begin vibrating in harmony with each other it amplifies and intensifies the sound. This same principle operates through our mind, which is an energetic system in terms of how it operates in organizing the outer world to match the vibration set in our inner world of thought and feeling. Whatever our vibration is as the “qualities and characteristics” that make up our “mental model” acts to bring those same qualities and characteristics alive in others and in everything around us as our “perception” of it. As we encounter what you might think of as a greater unified field of information that exists outside of us in a passive (neutral) and unformed state, we perceive it “through” our mental lens which acts to only bring out in it what’s of a similar nature to us, and we create an experience of “ourselves” in them. We don’t “see them” as they actually are, apart from and different from us, but rather as we remake them to have the same qualities and characteristics as we do. Once we act to bring out in them what matches us in terms of our character, these shared qualities then form the nature of our interaction, and we reshape them to reflect back to us our own thoughts about them. We can only see in them what first exists as a part of our own constitution.

This can be difficult to realize in the most basic sense because our mental paradigm is formed out of both our conscious and unconscious mind, which means we easily see in others the same traits and qualities that we also possess but have denied having, refused to express, and have repressed consequently. Once we repress aspects of ourselves that we don’t like, they remain active inside of us and continue creating at the unconscious level where they form a fundamental part of our outer reality. When we encounter these repressed aspects of ourselves in another or in a situation of some kind, we form a distinct reaction to them. This creates a fundamental illusion that presents itself as a paradox that comes about naturally through “polarity”. The aspects of ourselves that we accept, like or find admirable, we include in the image we form ourselves and when we encounter those same aspects in others, we form a similar response to them. When we encounter aspects in others that we have repressed due to how we judged ourselves for having them, we react to them by forming the same judgments. Our judgment comes as the commentary that accompanies the reaction itself as what we begin telling ourselves about the other person, or what the situation means about the people involved.

This idea is very important to understand, not only as a means for seeing into our own unconscious nature, but as the means for understanding how to not let other people’s attitudes and perception of us affect us. It helps us in forming a clear realization that what someone says or does, whether it’s directed towards us or not, is a reflection of “them” and has nothing to do with us unless we make it about us. Their actions only serve to reveal their character and mindset, but when you allow it to trigger a reaction in you, it calls forth in you those same characteristics, causing you to become “like them”, or as a means of making their ideas about you true. Whatever feelings, emotions, and thoughts you allow to enter your mind and take hold, you turn into a reality. We tend to do this naturally without realizing it because we exist primarily in a semi-unconscious state where we function in an automatic way based on memory. But once we begin recognizing what’s happening, we can use our mind in a more conscious and deliberate way to prevent it and keep things in their proper perspective.

When we exist in a primarily unconscious state we tend to be in a constant form of reaction, either to others and the events of our life, or to our own thoughts. We approach everything from a semi-unconscious state where we’re fairly self-contained and consumed in our own thoughts about things, yet as soon as we’re triggered somehow, we instantly go into an automatic reaction. The trigger comes as an emotional zinger (intense inner stimulus) that prompts and calls forth a memory as the dynamic we use for producing an automatic reaction. The emotion that acts as the activating mechanism is directly connected to a memory where the same emotion was playing out, and subconsciously we instantly reference that memory by saying “this means the same thing as that”, and we react by displaying the same behaviors. As we react, it causes an equal reaction in them, where it escalates, and it simply goes back and forth where we’re both creating out of an unconscious state of “auto-pilot”. This same process continues when long after the event has past when we continue to think about it and replay it in our mind, forming a reaction to our own thoughts. We keep ourselves in the same state of mind due to the fact that we can’t seem to honestly let it go, and it keeps playing out as random thoughts that run through our mind unattended throughout the day.

An easy way to understand our unconscious mind, which is also called our lower self or animal nature, associated with our personality, comes in realizing that it doesn’t “think” in terms of reasoning or discernment, and is always in a reactive state of some kind because it functions instinctively through emotional impulses. It exists outside of “time” and is always present in the moment, while receiving constant information as impulses from everything around it. Instinct comes as “memory” that has behaviors inherent in it, and as an animal is stimulated by a feeling or emotional charge of some kind in the environment around it, it triggers an automatic reaction. The reaction formed doesn’t come by analysis of what’s stimulating it, or by thinking about what to do as a strategic response, it comes instantaneously as a behavioral pattern. As we’re stimulated emotionally by an outside source we go into an automated process where our conscious mind temporarily shuts down and we act out the same behaviors that we formed out of memories of the past where we were being stimulated in the same way.

This is what it means to live out of a semi-unconscious state where you build whole realities out of emotional reactions that keep you locked inside of a constant form of delusion. When we use the term “unconscious”, many don’t understand what it means because we equate unconscious with meaning we’re not awake and aware, because they often fail to comprehend that we actually have “two aspects of our mind” that function together in producing our experiences of what we call reality. When our unconscious mind dominates by running our thoughts, we live out of a constant form of reaction, whether in relation to others or in response to our own thoughts, and we use memories of the past as the lens we look through in the present, replaying the same ideas over and over, reshaping the present to be of the same nature as the past, while our conscious mind simply “observes our delusions” in a self-aware manner. Emotions are designed to keep us locked into automatic processes where thoughts run through our mind in an habitual manner, and is the number one way we’re not only “controlled by others”, but also fail to use the creative capacity of our conscious mind, by learning how to instead direct our own thoughts while deflecting the emotions being transmitted through the atmosphere by others.

The ”conscious” aspect of our mind comes as our “thought life”, where we think and form internal concepts as a way of directing our own subconscious through a form of “virtual memory”, and as a way of internally “generating” emotions in response to our own thoughts. There’s a very dynamic relationship that exists between thought and emotion, where one is always directly connected to the other in an equivalent manner. When we passively absorb and take in emotions being transmitted through the atmosphere by others, they serve to render us unconscious by directing our thoughts in an impulsive and automatic way, seemingly beyond our ability to control them. When we form thoughts out of a calm state, where we’re not being stimulated by an outside force, as we shape our thoughts into a sensory reality in our imagination, we generate emotions in response to our thoughts, which not only act as the motivating force that determines how our thoughts become expressed, but also forms the vibratory frequency that we act to transmit through the atmosphere around us. Thought is a function of our higher, creative mind, and emotion is the motive force of our lower, expressive mind. Our body is the vehicle for our higher mind to express through. The only question in any moment is which one is determining the other, and which one is running the show in terms of how it is we’re creating our experience of ourselves through the reality we’re forming using both aspects of our mind in harmony with each other.

Observing Your Own Internal Processes

One of the keys to becoming self-directed is to learn how to observe your own internal processes that occur in a completely natural way without your direct awareness of them. Once you begin seeing how these automatic processes work you can begin developing your own methods for working with your mind and the mind of others in a conscious and intentional way. To do this, sit quietly in a place where you won’t be disturbed, quiet your mind of all the chatter, and recall a memory of an instance where you were upset by something someone said or did. Don’t associate into the experience by reliving it emotionally, but instead remain just outside of it where you can observe the interaction in a somewhat objective way, as if you’re another person watching it from a detached perspective. Picture the invisible aspects operating in the situation in your mind by turning them into imaginary concepts. As the person said or did whatever it was that caused you to react, notice where the energy of it entered your body and stimulated you. As you feel the stimulus in some part of your body, what emotion did it immediately give rise to? Once the emotion was active inside of you, what memory did you immediately associate to it that was formed out of the same emotion? Allow yourself to recognize that your reaction was formed by how you “interpreted” what was said or done, and that interpretation formed a recourse as the basic pattern inherent in the memory that formed how you reacted (being mad, upset, angry, hurt, sad, etc.). What meaning did you give the memory that served to form how you experienced it and what story started playing out in your mind as a result?

Concentrate all your attention on the invisible forces that were operating in the situation as a form of “energetic transmission”. Then, clear your mind, and recall the same memory while playing out a different mental scheme. Imagine your mind is a clear sphere of energy that surrounds your body while extending outward 3 to 4 feet and acts as a form of protective barrier that prevents the energy being projected by others to enter your mind and stimulate you internally. This clear sphere or egg-shaped bubble not only acts as an energetic barrier, but also a transparent movie screen or lens. Picture the same thing happening, except this time it hits the outer periphery of your mental sphere, where instead of entering your body, it plays out more like a movie you’re watching from a dissociated state. You can see what movie the energy is impregnated with as a way of seeing the other persons thoughts and what’s playing out in their mind from a detached perspective where it’s not affecting you in any way and you remain calm. As you keep it outside of yourself and you simply “witness it” from a detached state, you not only get to see it as it (they) really is apart from you, but you also act as a mirror to reflect it back to them, allowing them to see themselves as they really are.

All reactions come by absorbing and taking on the energy being projected by others who are in near proximity of you. As you absorb the energy that’s pregnant with the thoughts and intentions of others and you let them take hold and begin growing within you, your mental state changes and you become “like them” in nature. You’re literally being influenced to become like them while unaware of what’s happening or being aware that you’re the one who’s actually doing it to yourself from a primarily unconscious state. Your conscious mind is the aspect of yourself that acts as the “gatekeeper” of your subconscious mind, because it has the ability to think and evaluate ideas from a rational state of reasoning and make “decisions” about what to let in and what to keep out. But it can only perform this duty when we remain aware of what’s happening and therefore able to direct the activities of our own mind. This basic function comes by learning how to keep ourselves emotionally separate from everything around us and in being able to realize what’s happening in terms of how we’re being stimulated by the outer world at any given moment. Through consistent practice we can begin training ourselves in how to not react emotionally to whatever is happening and remain calm and centered in the midst of what would otherwise cause a great deal of inner turmoil, and learn how to see others as they truly are rather than as we remake them to be like us.

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

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

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

12 Earth's moving through vortex

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

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

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

Mandala

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

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

Spark of Consciousness

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

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

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

Our Energetic Blueprint as a Metaphorical Theme

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

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

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

Stargate

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

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

Internal Representations as Holographic Models

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

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

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

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

Our Self-Image

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

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

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

A New Way for Understanding the True Nature of your Mind and Soul

It’s interesting to notice how modern science and psychology are acting to steer us away from our own true spiritual nature by attempting to equate our “mind” with our brain and body, and our “memories” as something stored in the brain, while debunking the idea of the “soul” as being real. They’re simultaneously gearing us up for the idea of merging our personal consciousness with a computer (the singularity) as a way of supposedly achieving immortality. Yet we already possess immortality through the very nature of our mind and soul. We’re being systematically taught to think of our “self” as our physical body and personality rather than our soul and consciousness, which promotes the natural assumption that when our body dies, we, as an individual, will also die and cease to exist. Yet nothing could be further from the truth. 

What I would like to offer in this article is a new way of looking at the mind and soul that ties ideas together in a way that greatly expands our own awareness of ourselves. True knowledge can only be realized and attained through direct experience. It doesn’t come in a lab or through scientific experiments that are designed to gather and measure physical evidence or material substances, or by forming mathematical formulas in an attempt to prove a theory of some kind that lacks practical application in the most basic sense. While many portray the mind as being mysterious and elusive, the simple fact is it can be observed by reflecting on how it “operates” as inner processes we naturally engage in through thinking, imagining, and processing information, and can be “known” in a direct and intimate sense.

Scientists seem to completely overlook the simple fact that all their theories, hypothesis, formulas, and experiments are being developed out of thin air (in an invisible manner) by their “mind”. Our mind isn’t a material substance, it’s the intelligent, invisible force that “causes” material “effects”. It’s what’s generating, constructing, holding together, animating, and maintaining our perception of reality as an outer reflection of our inner nature. Reality itself can only be “known” through our ability to “perceive it”. All science is discovered, invented, and conducted using the mind. We can gain a practical understanding of the invisible nature of our mind by reflecting on symbolic ideas, spiritual terminology, metaphorical concepts, and by simply using it to create imaginary realities. We don’t want to take an attitude of swinging from one extreme to another by moving from a purely rational and logical mindset to a mystical, fantasy oriented one, but rather by using our “whole mind” in combining them to form intuition and reasoning.

The terms “mind and soul” are synonyms, and are different words used in describing the same thing (phenomena). The soul constructs and creates the material world through the mind, which is commonly represented as a sphere of invisible energy that’s conscious and self-aware. Its creative capacity comes through its ability to construct realities and material images by thinking about them. As we think we form the ideas into visible images as a possible reality or experience. The longer we think about something, the more detailed and alive it becomes. The image formed is initially shadowy, translucent, and appears more like a reflection on glass. On the inner planes it appears as an image reflecting off of a dark shiny surface, similar to how our memories appears when being recollected and replayed. In the magical arts, which is all about working with the imagination to produce the “prototype” for manifesting as a natural part of the outer world, this idea is referred to as a “magic mirror”. This magic mirror is formed out of a black, polished stone, where prophecy and premonitions can be perceived inwardly. This also symbolizes how our higher self works in using a “symbolic idea” as a form of “metaphorical seed”, that’s then projected into the subconscious of the body, where it appears as a reflection in our mind, as a way of giving it a “pattern” for manifesting by building it into our existing reality.

As we think, we picture our thoughts as a reality or scenario that starts off vague and impressionistic, usually with a neutral or grayish tone, and by continuing to think about it we steadily shape it with sensory details that vitalizes it with sensation, causing it to begin “vibrating”. It usually not only starts off vague and neutral colored, but looks and feels as if it’s off in the distance or far away. As we continue to define it with color, texture, sound, smell, contours, tastes, and so on, it gives us a “feeling” as a bodily sensation that naturally generates an “emotion” in response to it. As we form it into a sensational three-dimensional construct that generates a correlating emotion, it starts to look as if it’s close up and in vivid technicolor, and we start to form an inner dialogue around it as a story we tell ourselves about it that gives it “meaning” and forms an inner “experience” of it.

The idea shaped into a sensory reality at a purely mental level, forms a feeling that acts to stimulate our nervous system, causing a “chemical reaction” that we experience as an emotion. It becomes what you might think of as an electrical impulse or “spark” that follows a pathway through our brain, nervous system, and endocrine glands that acts to adjust our body chemistry to match our mental state. We are constantly producing the physical chemistry of our thoughts. What we refer to as the spiritual energetic centers of our subtle body (chakras) act on our physical body to “regulate it” through a form of vibratory impulse that keeps our body in the same state as our mind, making it an appropriate vehicle for our soul to express through. The conscious energy centers of our subtle body stimulate the correlating endocrine glands associated with those centers, which generate and release “hormones” directly into our bloodstream that serve to regulate all our biological processes.

Our thoughts, pictured inwardly as an experience serve to regulate our biochemistry and produce equivalent emotions, which then become the animating force for expressing them through natural behaviors and activities. As we generate emotions in response to our own thoughts, those emotions are transmitted through the atmosphere where they’re felt by others, stimulating them into the same emotional state. While our thoughts are primarily unique to us, emotions are universal in nature and effect every living being within the material world and are the natural forces that drive “instinct”. So even though they may not form the same thoughts as we do, they form thoughts that are naturally born out of the same emotions. Every emotion contains a form of “theme” as a particular type of experience. This is how we’re always influencing and transforming everything around us to match our vibratory state. This is the main way our mind directly effects our physiology making our body an ideal vehicle for our mind to express through and use as the means of “experiencing itself”. Thoughts developed in our imagination also produce “electrical sparks” in our brain that set whole biological processes in motion through our nervous system.

The Subtle Body and Our Etheric Blueprint for Regeneration

What’s referred to as our “subtle body”, which can also be thought of as our “astral” or “etheric” body, is formed by our mind as a “holographic template” or blueprint for spatially organizing and constructing our body, and for consistently regenerating it throughout our lifetime. Anyone who has ever built or made anything realizes you need a design as a preconceived idea, plan, blueprint, or diagram. What’s called “Astral Light” in Esoteric Sciences is the substance used by the mind in the Qabalistic “Plane of Formation”, where an idea (that’s invisible) is shaped into an image (made visible). This is the plane (phase) where spirit, as archetypes in their unformed and “potential state” (invisible in origin), are drawn into the individual mind and formed into a holographic light body clothed in “essence” and “formed” on the inner planes as a “vibrating pattern”. We form them into our “own image” by adapting them to our existing paradigm, which we then “look through” as a means of perceiving the same idea in everything around us. What we call “reality” as our outer world is formed through our perception of it. We’re always shaping reality as a holographic matrix formed out of our own thoughts.        

The essence used by the mind to shape an idea on the inner planes is “starlight” (astral light) which is also a form of “plasma”. This neutral essence used to shape ideas into form, appears in the same way “nebula” does throughout the cosmos. It takes on a misty cloud-like appearance that’s very malleable and as it becomes concentrated takes on a more liquid-like appearance. This can also appear as an invisible field comprised of a lattice-like structure that “draws” essence out of the space around it, as a form of magnetic-pull, and constructs the image into a ghostlike shape that’s then developed into a living entity by continuing to think about it. As we think about something we continuously shape it with attributes that give it distinct qualities and characteristics.

This can be thought of as an original archetypal idea that exists primarily as an invisible field of information that vibrates at a frequency correlated to its “class or species”. This field of information as a “basic pattern” is then sculpted by the mind into a 3-D form and imbued with the same qualities the mind shaping it is also comprised of, making it into a correlating image of itself. This can be understood by recognizing that every person who focuses on the same basic idea will shape it in a different way where it fits into their everyday reality in a congruent and meaningful way. We always shape ideas to resemble us, because we’re also a hologram (mental model) made of specific attributes, qualities, and characteristics concentrated into a single idea, and as we draw in an idea in its primary, universal form, we steadily adapt it to our image and modify it by assigning new qualities to it that reshape it to be a natural part of our current reality.

How We Construct Reality as a Probability

The creative function of our mind operates to construct our outer reality to be a reflection of our inner thoughts. Our mind vibrates at a specialized frequency that’s unique to us because we’re the one who’s constantly organizing and maintaining it. What we perceive as the outer reality exists as the greater, group, or cosmic mind, which contains all information in archetypal form in a latent and inactive state of “potentiality”. This entire outer field of illumination, which is also comprised of astral light (sunlight), exists in a fundamental state of “probability”. It contains all “information” in its raw form that can be utilized for constructing an infinite number of novel variations. The individual mind, which exists as a paradigm or holographic model, is comprised of a selected amount of information abstracted from this greater field and used to make a new construct that serves as an outer reflection of itself, where it can perceive and form and “experience” of itself.

The mind exists as what we can think of as “fields” that exist within larger fields of the same nature and kind. As the individual mind blends into the greater “field of probability”, it acts on it to vibrate and call forth only what’s of the same nature (essence) as it is, using the selected bits of information to build a consistent version of reality. We only draw out of the space around us what matches us as a metaphorical theme. We then take this small amount of selected information and shape it into a mirror image of ourselves as a specialized version, or unique possibility. The outer world is shaped as an objective version of the inner, setting the stage for acting out our personal drama, allowing us to experience ourselves through our own story about ourselves and our life.

Two Levels of the Mind

Within the astral plane of formation, we have what we call an upper and lower level or region, which are different “aspects” and functions of the same mind. As the mind comes into the realm of experience, which requires a light-body, it divides into polar aspects of itself, forming the conscious mind on a higher level, and subconscious on the lower level of the same plane. Both aspects of the mind play different roles and functions in creating the same reality as an experience of itself. The conscious mind exists on the higher level and is the active, masculine aspect, and the subconscious of the lower plane is the passive, feminine aspect of the “same mind and soul”. The higher aspect of the conscious mind can never fully manifest into the material formation but is what acts to produce the “seed” as a thought-form that impregnates the subconscious, which then grows the seed into a holographic construct which serves as a “living blueprint” (dynamic and malleable) for building into the existing outer reality.

 These two aspects of the same mind and reality that they work together in producing, are referred to in Esoteric texts as the “Son” (Sun) and his “Bride” (Moon), who together, through an act of holy matrimony (energetically fusing into one essence), produce an “offspring” as a reality that’s comprised of both aspects formed into a single unit. These are also referred to in the “pantheon of the gods” as “brother and sister”, born of the same essence (genetic makeup) and soul, who are also husband and wife and marry, merging into each other as “one mind and soul”. As the conscious mind forms the seed for impregnating the subconscious, its built into a living entity on the inner planes and then birthed on the outer planes as their offspring, forming a single reality as the vehicle and means for self-expression.

Both aspects of the same mind are comprised of three aspects (formed as one), two of which are polar-opposites of each other, and together form a unified idea in relationship with each other. All formation as a 3-D construct only comes through vibration, where conscious energy moves in a spiraling motion between two poles that are set apart from each other, where they interact by switching back and forth through an active and passive state. The movement between two poles as an electromagnetic pulse of consciousness, produces heat as friction that expands and illuminates’ essence forming a living matrix of light as a holographic, 3- dimensional form. Each aspect is comprised of both a feminine and masculine, or passive and active aspect, which alternate polarity as the means of producing movement as a vibration. Each aspect of the triune mind is represented by an “equilateral triangle” that forms a model for understanding how complementary aspects, represented by the two points at opposite ends of the horizontal base line, interact to call forth and assemble a unified formation, represented by the single point, formed as the apex, on a higher (or lower) level of the same plane. They literally stimulate each other into existence as a form of energetic fusion or mating.

On the upper level of the conscious mind, the triangle is orientated so it points downwards in a descending motion. This symbolizes that the complimentary aspects (upper baseline) are what forms its intrinsic nature or constitution. The lower triangle is formed as a mirror image of the upper, where the complementary aspects of the upper are projected into the lower subconscious as a reflection of the same nature. The triangle of the subconscious is also orientated downward, where it’s apex forms into a single point, forming the etheric body as the holographic model or etheric double that forms the energetic substrata for the material world. The unified nature on the higher level is projected into the lower level of the same plane, forming a reflection of itself. This forms the complimentary aspect of the subconscious, as the instinctual, emotional mind, and the intellectual, cognitive aspect of the mind. These two complementary aspects form into a single unit as the astral, etheric, or subtle body, which forms the energetic field of “coalesced essence” as a “frequency” (energetic stresses and tension) for organizing and assembling the entire physical reality as an outer reflection of itself.

The complementary aspects of the subconscious, which are a reflection of the higher consciousness, perform the same function as an operation on the material plane as they do on the higher plane. What most think of as their conscious mind while in their body and reality of the body, is actually an aspect of the subconscious, that shares the same ability of the higher conscious mind in being able to impregnate its own feminine aspect, which we refer to as our subconscious. We all have the innate ability to form thoughts as visual images, vitalized with sensory detail that make them come alive as an inner experience, that we can use to give our subconscious a “pattern and command” for building into our existing reality as a natural part of it. But few people realize this higher ability in being able to create their own reality.

Higher Self

Many people live their entire life virtually unaware of their higher mind, and the fact that they are consistently programming their own subconscious through their thoughts formed into realities in their imagination as possibilities for experience. And instead, allow their thoughts to be run by their emotions where they replay the same memories associated with their emotions over and over in different ways as a constant ongoing form of self-dialogue. Many live their entire life without ever realizing they’re the one not only constructing their reality and experiences, but also have the ability to change it by evolving it into new variations by reforming it in their imagination as a way of “seeding” their own subconscious. When we develop an idea in our imagination, imbuing it with sensory details where it comes alive as an experience, while forming dialogue around it that tells a story about the type of experience we want to have, our subconscious acts to “conceive it”, and gestates it by building it into our existing model being projected as our reality, where it appears outside of us in a corresponding way, through a natural series of correlated events.

This process can seem confusing to most because they don’t realize that any idea formed on the inner planes as a “mental construct” is formed as an archetypal matrix, which serves as a “prototype” for producing as an outer experience by adapting it to the current environment, and shaping it based on whatever elements of a congruent nature are available for making it. The idea formed is not a literal representation of an exact situation, but a symbolic one. On the inner planes of the imagination, all ideas are metaphorical and represent a particular “type of experience”. How it comes about is irrelevant in the most basic sense because the material formation itself merely serves as the means for bringing us the experience of ourselves that we requested in building it.

How Our Mind Builds a Sensory Reality

It’s interesting to note how it is that we are consistently taught to separate the inner from the outer by saying that our “brain” acts to translate an idea into an outer perception through our physical senses, instead of realizing that our mind is what’s producing reality itself. What we sense outwardly is first shaped inwardly, on what we call the “invisible” level. We seem to always separate our physical body from our mind, just like we separate our conscious from our subconscious, and our subconscious from our higher consciousness, instead of realizing they’re all different aspects and levels of the same creative process. This can be understood by reflecting on how it is we form our thoughts into living realities by how we develop them in our imagination.

When we initially think of an idea by pulling it up in our mind, it appears as a flat, somewhat distant, neutral toned, vague, cloud-like shape. As we concentrate on it, we begin developing it by shaping it with sensory attributes. These attributes come as visual contours, textures, designs, patterns, and colors in various hues and tones. We then incorporate sounds that come as being in the experience of it, along with odor’s, aromas, taste, and what it feels like to touch it – soft, silky, smooth, rough, sharp, and so on. As we continue to develop it with sensory attributes, it takes on a quality as a “feeling”, and comes alive with movement of some kind. As we continue to develop it with sensation it starts playing out as a whole scene formed as an orchestration or composition. As it begins coming alive within us, it seems to become closer and more immediate, where it produces correlated sensations that stimulate our body as a “feeling”. The feeling produced acts to stimulate a corresponding “emotion” that animates it as “experience”. As it comes alive with emotion, we begin telling ourselves a story about it that shapes it into the “type of experience” we want. The story we form out of our own mental creation is how we build it into our existing mental paradigm and is what allows it to become a normal part of our outer experience. All of this is happening at the mental level as a construct formed in our imagination (image as a nation), and though it’s not real yet as an outer reality of the same kind, it provides the etheric-template as a “vibratory frequency” for producing as a correlating outer reality.

We literally bring the idea alive on the inner planes of the mind by “vibrating it”. We do this by imbuing it with our soul’s “magnetism” where we shape it to be a reflection our “self” by giving it the same essence that we possess, vitalizing it with our “life-force”. We shape it using our life energy as our consciousness. We take an idea in a potential state and we “clothe it” with an outer garment of light, giving it an outer appearance where it can be perceived and experienced in the material sense. The same process of shaping it by giving it an outer appearance comes by how we mold it into our existing mental paradigm, where it manifests in material form as a natural part of our present outer reality.

While we know scientifically that all material life forms exist as a “vibratory frequency”, we don’t always recognize that it’s the mind and soul that serves to form the “pattern” of the vibration. A vibration not only has a pattern inherent in it, but it’s also accompanied by a “self-assembling mechanism” that systematically “builds” the pattern into a 3-dimensional reality as a construct of “living essence”. Most people think this “vibrating matrix of light” we experience as reality is formed and animated independently of us, while we’re subject to it and powerless to change it. Yet, upon closer examination we’ll discover that we have the ability to create realities by merging mentally with ideas and bringing them alive with feeling sensation that forms an “electrical impulse” that sets a “chain reaction” in motion within our body, producing the “chemistry” equivalent with that idea, altering our physiology to match the vibration of our imaginary thoughts. It’s our mind and soul that gives life to all things, and not the other way around.

The Paradox of the Mind

“As Above, so Below, and as Below, so Above, in the Wondrous Working of the One Thing”

Both aspects of the mind are Triads, represented symbolically as a triangle, and exist on higher and lower levels as mirror images of each other. When these triangles as mirror images are combined into a single image, they form a diamond shape. This diamond formed as the triangle on the upper level forming a reflection of itself on the lower level of the same plane, forms the Tetrad. This diamond shape, when turned 90 degrees (at a right angle) forms a square, and the square is the symbol that represents the material world. Sacred geometry provides us with working concepts for understanding how Universal Laws work in creating our reality, which are also the laws that govern our mind and provide us with intuitive instruction for learning how to create our life in a conscious and self-aware manner. This basic operation produces an etheric lattice as an energetic field of electromagnetic stresses that shape the substrata out of which a holographic construct is formed as an inner and outer reality joined to form an “experience” of our own thoughts.  

Triad - 3 levels /aspects of the mind

All concepts designed to illustrate Universal Law can be interpreted in a number of ways because they represent how the same process functions on multiple levels simultaneously as a single operation that both starts and ends a creative process. Once an initial idea is formed in the mind, we then use the same process we used in creating it to evolve it. We do this because each time the initial idea is expressed through a new situation, it reproduces as a variation of itself, and the variation produced is then integrated back into the original form that served to birth it. While the concept of the monad can be looked at in many different ways, I’m going to focus on its dual, polarized, paradoxical nature, because this is the function that tends to cultivate the greatest confusion, due to one aspect appearing to contradict the other.

In Sacred Geometry the mind is represented by the symbol of the monad, pictured as a dot in the center of a greater sphere of the same shape. This concept represents the mind as a single entity that functions through dual aspects that are complementary in nature and work together in producing a single reality. While contained within the lower material construct built by our mind, we perceive ourselves as a body contained within a greater reality, in which we live and acquire experiences of ourselves. We have both a “conscious” and “subconscious”, where our conscious mind seems to form our “outer awareness” and our subconscious is viewed as forming our “inner awareness”. Yet, if we look at reality through the model of the monad, while also realizing that what we call our conscious mind of outer awareness, exists as an inherent aspect of our subconscious, which operates just below the level of awareness, we can gain a greater understanding of the relationship formed between both aspects.

Stargate

If we move outside of the perception of an inner and outer that are separate from each other we can realize that the greater sphere, associated with our outer reality is being built, held in place, and animated with activity by our subconscious, which is the material aspect of our mind that uses an archetypal model (called our paradigm) to generate a correlating physical reality. Our conscious mind is represented by the dot in the middle as a central point located within the outer sphere and is what forms an awareness of our unconscious construct. our subconscious forms our “whole reality” and the conscious aspect is what uses that reality as a means of experiencing “itself” by telling a story about it. Our conscious mind is the part of ourselves (notice this is always plural) that forms reality out of a “story” it acts to “tell itself” as the means of producing its own experiences. The very nature of our thoughts come as one aspect of ourselves talking to another one. Internally we’re always talking to ourselves. The conscious mind appears to be “located” at the center of the outer world and forms an awareness from that perspective as being the center of its own universe (sun). We create our own world by living it through a story we’re always in the process of telling ourselves.

The outer world of “light” (as an illumination) is being produced by sunlight “reflecting” off particles (matter and moisture) in the atmosphere, in the same way the moon reflects sunlight. The sun represents our conscious mind, and the moon our subconscious mind. The outer sphere of illumination is formed as a reflection of our own “consciousness”. The conscious mind of the material plane is always viewing the reality of its own unconscious creation. It’s not just “aware” of the outer world but is also what forms the same “awareness” of our inner world. While we’re in the world of our subconscious, we’re unaware of it. The term “sub” is used in describing our unconscious mind because it’s what forms the underlying, energetic, lattice like substrata, of which the material one rises and constructed as the means of setting the stage for acting out the story of our soul as a means of experiencing ourselves through our own story. The conscious aspect of our mind is the only part that “sleeps” and shuts off awareness of the outer world, while the subconscious operates continuously from the moment of conception to the moment of death, and never sleeps, checks out, or shuts down. It’s the aspect of our mind that systematically and faithfully operates all of our biological processes.

 The monad can also be viewed as a sphere of circulating electromagnetic energy that flows in a toroidal shape. While we tend to view this flow as originating from the center point of the body and flowing outward, it can also be viewed as an electromagnetic respiration of circulating energy that acts to “concentrate” a center. This energy field expands equally in all directions at once, being more concentrated or pronounced a few feet away from the body, while the subtle aspect expands a great distance from the body. It functions primarily as a semi-closed system where the same group of information (paradigm) circulates in a pulsating motion to consistently form the same type of construct, while also functioning as a semi-open system that blends into and interacts with other minds and energy fields. As we interact with others and the world around us, new information is gathered and formed into unique variations that are simultaneously integrated back into the system as an experience, acting to develop it with new attributes and evolve it accordingly.

This smaller field of the individual mind exists within a greater field of the group mind, which also exists within an even greater field of the universal or cosmic mind. Each field of either a smaller or greater nature is comprised of information in both its latent and inactive state of potential, and in an active state organized through our “perception”, forming the basis for self-expression. As one field meets and blends into another, they both act on each other to stimulate congruent, correlated aspects that they share in common. The interaction between two minds occurs through polarity as a relationship that’s formed with the same aspects in another. Whatever is actively expressing in one field finds its correlating aspect in the other and acts to vibrate it, and the active aspects of both work together through resonance to form a new reality as a variation. The new attributes acquired modify the original qualities and characteristics, changing how they both express to form “new types” of the same overall reality as a joint experience. The new variations produced populate the greater field of the group mind or collective unconscious as “memory” that forms the building blocks for constructing new possibilities.

The universal mind, on the other hand, is archetypal in nature and exists in a fundamentally latent state of pure potential. The archetypes inherent in this greater universal field provide us with prototypes as general ideas that can be customized by the individual mind to form a personalized version. This field is “unformed” in its original state and is available for the individual mind to draw on and utilize based on what it activates in it through its own vibration. This aspect of the mind exists in a pure and unmixed state (virgin) of latent potential. We draw on the higher mind anytime we move above or step out of our own memories and draw in information for creating new ideas. We only activate the possibilities in this greater field (aether) that we vibrate in harmony with and that can be harmoniously molded into our existing mental paradigm, where it acts to grow and evolve it through new ways of perceiving that bring us a higher level of understanding and broaden our range for self-expression.

How Our Mind Forms Reality out of Our Thoughts

As we think, we simultaneously tune ourselves to the frequency of our thoughts as they exist in the atmosphere around us. In the general sense, thoughts formed as pictures are symbolic in nature and vibrate at a particular frequency that sets up and establishes a form of “gravitational field” between us and all other ideas of a similar and complementary nature. Our thoughts turned into images, pictures, or scenarios on the inner planes of our mind act to form an invisible field of electromagnetic stresses as a kind of “thematic pattern” that’s used to organize light in the greater field that surrounds us into the same type of pattern. This vibrating field of organized information is a “thought-form” that’s constructed out of “essence” (electrified plasma) that we vitalize with our own life-force, creating a kind of ‘astral-shell’ or ‘etheric template’ that serves as a vehicle for invisible, electromagnetic energy (spirit) to inhabit and propagate through space as a form of self-expression.

As we create thought-forms in our mind, correlating energies from the atmosphere around us that are of the “same nature” (frequency) are stimulated and called forth in an active state, forming the basis for shaping them into the reality of our thoughts. As we think, we shape an image of our thoughts in our mind using what appears internally as a kind of neutral essence. This grayish, neutral toned essence that the mind uses to construct thoughts into images is what’s referred to in Esoteric Sciences as “Astral Light”. This light is the primordial root substance of “matter” that exists in a passive and latent state until it’s stimulated by the activity of the mind. The mind interacts with this essence and uses it to form a visual image of its own thoughts, which is then used for producing an outer reality of the same kind.  As we create a thought-form in our imagination, we magnetize it with our own energy by imbuing it with sensation, which acts to bring it to life and animate it on the inner planes. These energies are intelligent forces that are all around us in the Earth’s atmosphere and we experience them as sensations that move within our energy field forming emotions. Emotions are the instinctual forces that cause all the “activity” we associate with the natural world. As we vibrate a pattern on the inner planes, it becomes a “metaphor” as a frequency that acts to organize the outer plane by vibrating and calling forth the same type of image on a greater and more inclusive scale as a correspondence. 

Our mind functions as an electromagnetic field (EMF) that pulsates as a form of respiration producing a toroidal (donut shaped) field of energy, that operates as a continuous “circuit” of self-generating and self-sustaining consciousness. The center or nucleus of this toroidal field (mind-field) is shaped over time into a “coherent model” of concentrated thought that forms an “electrical charge” that’s projected outward, activating, and awakening correlating energies all around us that are of the same frequency as our thoughts. Once this electrical charge hits the outer boundary of its impulse, it then reverses polarity, becoming magnetic, and is drawn back into the very construct (paradigm) that acted to produce it as a mirror image of itself (its own thoughts). As we perceive the outer world of our thoughts, we process them internally forming them into an “experience” of ourselves. The experiences we form, which were produced by memory to begin with, are then molded back into the same memory that produced it, where it acts to “evolve” it.

Our imagination is the faculty of our mind that we use for producing our experiences as thoughts brought to life by instinctual forces. All things only “exist” when they’re being stimulated into an active state of expression. Whatever we’re stimulated by outside of us, spontaneously gives rise to correlating feelings and ideas within us. This is also the faculty of our mind that we use for shaping our memories, and for recollecting and replaying them. As we think, we perceive and simultaneously construct the outer reality of our thoughts. People who have a vivid imagination yet haven’t learned how to direct or use it properly, often form internal realities that keep them consumed with constant forms of emotional dramas, usually without realizing they’re the one whose creating it. They’re their own judge and persecutor and are the one keeping themselves locked into constant delusions of their own making.

We don’t realize how it is that we’re doing this using our mind because it comes in a completely natural way. This isn’t a “literal process” where we’re actually changing reality itself in the object sense of rearranging things, it’s the process we all use in turning what exists fundamentally as an objective reality into a subjective one. Whenever we walk into any situation some things stand out and become immediately apparent, while others go unnoticed, and fade into the background. The parts we notice, we give our attention to, think about, and we use to form how we experience of that situation. When we set an expectation of some kind, which acts as a kind of prediction or prophecy, we see in every situation what we expect to see because we literally pre-programmed ourselves to only notice and call forth what matches our expectation and can be used to form the experience we expected to have. Memory works in the same way. Whatever memory we live out of in the general sense of constantly thinking about and running through our mind, forming endless dialogue around, becomes a program for only seeing in any situation what matches our memory and can be used to create more of the same type of experiences.

The Creative Power of Fear

Fear is both an imaginary adversary and a magnet for the energies all around us that are of the same nature as our fears and can be used to construct the reality that will give us more of the same feeling. Images of any kind formed in the imagination and imbued with strong emotions act as a symbol (representation) for the qualities associated with them as a certain “type” of experience and put us in direct contact with those same forces in the atmosphere around us. Focusing on a lion, while imagining it as aggressive and terrifying, tunes us into those same “qualities” in everything around us, drawing them into our sphere of awareness, where they act as the life-giving force that animates our thoughts, determining how they express in forming our perception of reality. This is how we summons elementary forces of Nature and use them as a means of creating. This same creative process is the basis for “Magic” performed as a ceremony, where the magus stands in the center of a circle, and is designed to walk the magician through the process of creating reality by summoning and eliciting the cooperation of natural intelligence’s (spirits) that are inherent within the space around us. Our subconscious, which is the aspect of our mind we share with all of Nature and is what acts to build our outer world, is “programmed” to create by providing it with a symbolic representation as a request for a certain type of experience. 

As we form fearful thoughts, we generate the emotion of fear internally by how we “act on ourselves” using our mind to stimulate our own nervous and endocrine system with the electrical impulses of our thoughts. We literally tune our energy field using the image associated with feeling afraid, saturating it with the energetic quality that will multiply and intensify the sensation of fear. Whatever feeling we generate on the inside we experience on the outside. We literally gestate the thoughts associated with fear, building them up on the inner planes as sensory forms, drawing to us and concentrating more and more of the same type of fear. We then birth it as a “whole reality” of correlated activity that unites the inner and outer as an extension and continuation of the same feeling. This is how we create a ‘seed’ within an ‘ovum’, that gestates and grows into a living being that then becomes a part of our outer world. We ‘look through’ our energy field as our perceptual lens, saturated with the propagation of fearful thoughts, and ‘only see’ (energetically interact) in everything else what’s of the same nature and quality as a possibility for creating more of the same type of experiences. We literally tune into, choose, separate out, draw together, and compose the reality that we then use to form our experiences. We have a hard time realizing this because the greater part of the process is being conducted in a completely unconscious and automatic way.

The Monad as the Model for the Mind

We can influence and learn to direct our reality by managing and consciously regulating our own thoughts. Energy flows as a continuous circuit from a positive to negative pole, which are separate and set apart from each other, yet connected as a waveform. All material substances are both an object (dot) and a wave (sphere) at the same time, which is demonstrated in the symbol used in Sacred Geometry to represent the Monad. There’s no such thing as drawing to us as a part of our outer perception and experience what’s not being generated and coalesced by us. We create the experience of being subject to the outer world of people and events, where we imagine we have no ability to influence or direct it, yet, at a deeper level we’re “subject” to the very thing we’re acting to unconsciously create. We can regulate and determine what energies of the natural world we draw to us by being aware of and intentionally directing our own thoughts.

The Pentad or Pentacle is a symbol of the power of the mind in organizing the four elements of the natural world into a harmonious construct. Fire is electric and expands, stimulates, and draws forth essence, Water is magnetic and receptive, and contracts coagulating and coalescing energies into a single unit, and combined, they form Air, which represents their offspring as a thought formed into a matrix of astral light as a three-dimensional holographic construct. Once essence is organized into a concept through a process of gestation, it both charges – sends out a signal that activates all correlating energies and essences – while also drawing them back in and building up the idea associated with them. This breeding, conception, gestation, and birthing process is the same principle that operates to create and build up memory as an internal representation for a particular type of experience. Memory, which is formed out of experiences, acts as a etheric template that’s “thematic” in nature, and forms the perceptual lens we look through and use to reconstruct the outer world into the same theme.  

As we begin the creative process by forming thoughts that act to draw in correlated energies, we not only tune our energy field by populating it with the images of our thoughts, but we’re also producing our experience by using a “vitalized idea” that we then reabsorb and synthesize back into the very representation that we used to generate it. An “internal representation” and a “memory” are both symbolic representations that are formed in the same way, and both act as the basis for projecting and building our outer reality. As we go along in life we use memory to produce our experiences and then merge those experiences into the memory that formed them. The memory we build up over time is a summation of all experiences of that same idea and the emotional state coupled with it. The more we create out of a vitalized memory that serves as a “symbolic representation” for producing a particular type of experience, the more stable and normal the experiences become, and we lose awareness of the fact that we’re the one creating them.

Higher Mind

Spiritual Regeneration and Soul Evolution

This same principle of regeneration and evolution is represented in the ancient myth of Kronos, the god associated with Saturn, who’s depicted as eating his own children as soon as they were born. Saturn and the Greek god Kronos are also associated with Binah of the Qabalah, an aspect of the Supernal and sphere of “understanding”, where all experience as memory of the self is absorbed (drawn up from the lower plane of Formation), across the Abyss of “knowledge”, and synthesized back into a single archetypal memory as the seed for the next incarnation. While we’re incarnate within the material plane these are the same principles that we use as the means of creating our experiences, and then using those experiences to create ourselves by how we identify with our own creation. As we think and form our thoughts as inner realities, regardless of whether we’re doing it consciously by intentionally directing our thoughts, or unconsciously by replaying the same handful of memories over and over, we’re populating our subconscious and energy field with those “images”. These images vibrate at the frequency of the “feeling” associated with them and tune us into the same energy in everything around us, while giving our subconscious a symbolic metaphor for producing the reality that will bring the type of experience our mental images represent. 

As we energize our thoughts with instinctual forces of emotional intensity, they become a natural part of our outer world as the people, activities, and events associated with them, and we formulate experiences out of them. This is the real meaning of what some are now calling the “Law of Attraction”, where you concentrate on an idea while infusing it with sensations as sensory details used to define it as an “experience” on the inner planes of the mind. This inner experience tunes the entire energy field to that idea as a symbolic representation and provides the means of producing the same type of experience outwardly. Whatever you vibrate on the inner planes awakens the same type of energies on the outer plane through resonance. The light-form created as the imaginary reality of your thoughts, acts as the vessel, carrier wave, or vehicle for bringing it alive as a material phenomenon. Once we vitalize our own internal representation with life force energies drawn from the space around us, bringing them to life inside of us as imaginary scenarios and possible experiences, our entire energy field becomes aligned to the same consonant. This works by forming our very perceptions, thoughts as internal dialogue, emotional state, behaviors, and the activities we naturally engage in. We “move it outside of us”, so to speak, where it starts showing up all around us in various ways and interacts with us in forming our experiences. We start seeing it in various forms within our normal reality. Someone starts talking to us about it, we read an article about it, see a headline, and come across the same idea in different ways throughout our daily activities.

The Power of the Spoken Word

This idea is more profoundly represented in the creative principle of the “spoken word”. Words are spoken both silently within our mind as thoughts, and outwardly in what we talk about or say to others. As we say a word, we immediately form an image in our imagination that represents the “meaning” of the word. Once an initial image is formed, we use it as the basis for building into a reality by continuing to think about it. As we think about something we steadily shape it by defining it with sensory details. The longer we think about it the more detailed it becomes, and we shape it into a possible experience. This imaginary experience acts to generate emotions that are correlated with it. Our thoughts regulate our physical state because they act as electrical impulses that run through our brain and nervous system as a dynamic network, stimulating our endocrine glands, which saturate our whole system with chemicals that generate an emotional response to our thoughts. The emotions generated coalesce with our thoughts, serving to animate them and bring them to life as an “inner experience of reality”. At this point it’s still invisible in terms of our physical senses, yet it’s an astral form that serves as an etheric blueprint and spatial model for ordering and organizing the same idea on a larger scale as an outer reality of the same kind. It becomes the symbolic template for generating realities that give us more and more of the same type of feelings and emotions.

We begin forming our “story” about ourselves based on how we interpreted our experiences to form a memory of them. While we tend to think that we form a memory of actual events and situations, if we look at them more closely, we’ll come to realize that they’re actually formed out of how we interpreted those events to make them mean something. Whatever they meant to us at the time they happened forms the story we told ourselves about them, and out of the story we began shaping our identity. Our identity comes by how we get a “sense ourselves” through our own story as both the author and main character, which forms the nature of all our experiences. We form our experiences out of an ongoing story we’re always telling ourselves. If you reflect on the nature of your own thoughts, what you’ll realize is that “one part of you” is always talking to “another part of you”. You’re always explaining, describing, debating, and telling yourself stories about things as your ordinary thoughts. All our experiences are generated as the expression of a consistent theme formed as a core memory, and then reabsorbed and integrated into that same story, evolving it through the telling. We literally “become” that idea in spirit because we use our own, self-generated, self-constructed experiences to form our reality. This idea is what Jesus was communicating when he stated, “and the word was made flesh and walked among us”. We literally form our reality out of our thoughts about it.

The Imagination and the Minds Ability to Generate Reality

This same principle as a creative process is demonstrated through the interaction as a dynamic relationship between complementary aspects of our own mind, known as the conscious and subconscious mind. These are not two different minds, but two aspects and specialized functions of the same mind that work together in producing a coherent reality. We perceive the inner and outer world as being separate and set apart from each other because we’re grounded within our physical body which is “located” within the outer field of our mind, forming our perspective from a centrally located reference point. Our body and the outer world of our body are formed out of the same mental model as a coherent mental construct. The illusion of being separate from the larger idea playing out around us is necessary in order to form an “experience of ourselves” through and as a fundamental part of that idea. As we form an internal representation of an idea it tunes our mind to the same pattern as a 3-dimensional model that serves as a metaphorical theme or archetypal matrix. This means the idea can be applied and systematically adapted to any number of situations or circumstances to produce a variation as a possibility of the same overall idea.

An “idea” is holistic in nature and isn’t about a specific material construct or set of circumstances, it’s more of a “metaphorical theme” as the perceptual lens we look through that reshapes any number of situations to provide us with more of the same type of experiences. For example, the idea of “abandonment” as a type of experience that gives us the feeling we associate with being abandoned, can take place any number of ways through various situations and circumstances. This isn’t based on a situation or event itself in the objective sense but is formed by how we interpret it make it “mean” we’re being abandoned. As we continue to harbor and play out the memory of being abandoned, we form an expectation around it that acts as a form of “intention”, while simultaneously producing semi-unconscious natural behaviors that act to provoke and instigate it in a subtle and indirect way. We unconsciously produce the same type of behaviors and attitude over and over that ultimately cause us to be abandoned. All without realizing what we’re doing, because it’s operating primarily at the subconscious level where we’re only partially aware of what we’re doing.

Two Minds

We tend to live and create out of a primarily unconscious state due to the fact that we don’t realize our mind has “two aspects” that perform different functions in creating the same unified reality, and we don’t know how to operate them in an intentional manner as the means of producing specific types of experiences. The conscious aspect of our mind has the ability to shape ideas into pictures in the imagination that serve as a metaphorical concept for giving the subconscious a creative directive for adapting and molding into our existing reality. As we hold an image in our mind and define it with sensory details it acts to stimulate and give rise to a corresponding emotion in response to it. The emotion that couples with it animates it with life and determines how it expresses in forming a particular type of experience. As we vibrate an idea on the inner planes it becomes the organizing principle for shaping the outer plane to be a mirror image of it. The subconscious is the aspect of our mind that’s a part of the collective unconscious and group mind of Nature that forms and regulates all life on Earth. Any idea formed in the imagination and vitalized with sensation, gives our subconscious a “request” and a metaphorical pattern for producing as an outer experience. The subconscious produces the energetic substrata as a matrix of crystalized light on the inner planes that forms a vibratory frequency out of which all material phenomena is organized and held in place. Our conscious mind of outer awareness then perceives the reality formed by the subconscious out of its own thoughts.

Once we form a direct awareness around how we’re using our mind to shape our reality as a reflection of our thoughts about it, we can begin understanding the importance of monitoring and paying more attention to what we consistently think about and the memories we dwell in and consistently replay on an ongoing basis. The only way to change your experience of yourself as a reality is in changing the “story” you’re always in the process of telling by how you interpret the ordinary events of life. As long as you continue to tell yourself the same story about your life and why you’re the way you are based on “what’s happened to you”, then you’re going to continue to create the same type of experiences as your past. The very basis for “transformation” and “spiritual regeneration” comes by learning how to tell a different kind of story. Once you realize that you have the power to create yourself to be whatever it is you want to be, and you acquire the formula for reprogramming yourself using your imagination, your life experiences take on a whole new meaning, and you’ll begin engaging enthusiastically in your own spiritual journey with a sense of creativity and artistic freedom.

Intuition – Clairvoyance, Premonition, and Attaining Higher Knowledge

Intuition forms what we tend to call our sixth sense, which comes predominately as a “feeling” or sense we have about something based on its mental and emotional state, and by how it forms an intrinsic part of a greater whole. It can come as a direct awareness of the “inner nature” of something that acts to form the outer appearance and activity it takes on, or as an awareness that stems out of the past, present, and future being perceived as a “single unit” or different phases of a larger pattern. It can also come in the form of a “premonition” that provides a form of preview as to what will play out through the natural course of events already set in motion. When we experience a subtle awareness around something it can come as a snapshot into a greater idea being played out and as revealing how all parts of a whole exist in relationship with each other as an interaction or greater pattern that’s “all-inclusive” and self-.

Intuition often comes through our innate ability to move beyond the outer appearance of things and tune into the inner essence expressing through it as its soul or spirit. Regardless of what’s being seen, said, or done, you can perceive the true intention, motive, and feeling being emitted energetically. As you subdue the outer while focusing intently on the inner, it connects you to the true essence of each person or being. Not as their emotional state, thoughts, or verbal expression, but as a feeling out of which everything else forms and actively takes shape. You can accurately understand the feeling by stepping outside of and momentarily detaching from your own preconceptions, opinions, and inner dialogue, and be fully “present with it”. As you become calm and present in a situation, clearing your mind of all thoughts about things, you can literally become “one with them in mind”, where, as you tune into and embody the same “feeling”, mental impressions associated with that feeling start forming and playing out in your mind of their own volition. As they play out through an imaginary scenario, you witness them from a detached state where you don’t try to change or manipulate them in any way so that they’ll fit into your own ideas about things, but simply become a passive stage for them to play out in whatever way is natural to them. Sometimes an inner voice accompanies the mental impression, not so much as words or talking, but more as a “knowing” that’s correlated to a greater whole. You realize it as being a snapshot of a much larger scene or story that’s playing out over an extended period of time as a synchronized course of events.

While so many of us have been taught to cultivate a “this or that”, black or white mentality, where we selectively abstract only certain parts inherent in a greater whole, and then build a whole out of those parts by reshaping them to fit our beliefs about them, the underlying truth is that everything functions intimately as a single movement and energetic flow. There’s no such thing as a single and independent thought. All thoughts proliferate naturally out of a stream or current of thought that vibrate at a frequency particular to that thought. This fact is commonly described as “stepping into the flow” of events, where you see whatever is happening in the present as being an interconnected part of a much larger dynamic. Every moment exists as a continuous enactment and telling of a an even greater story being played out through space and time.

Visualization, Memory, and Imagination

One of the things that can make intuition difficult to understand as a practice, comes by confusion around what it means to have “inner visions” associated with intuition and clairvoyance. There are different types of visions which have a broad range of clarity and precision that can come as vague and somewhat elusive impressions, images that resemble daydreams or nightly dreams, or ones that have a pronounced feeling of clarity that brings a heightened level of understanding, only part of which comes through visual attributes. Intuition, like the term “visualization” can be somewhat misleading, because it comes through the faculty of the “imagination”, which includes all of our senses, and often lacks a visual image or impression.

In the normal sense of what I’ll refer to as your everyday form of intuition, visions hardly ever come as crisp, detailed visual images, but come in much the same way “memories” do. They come as what can be described as transparent or translucent mental impressions that only serve to symbolize or put you in touch with the inner essence of things. This can be best understood through simple practices such as “remembering” something. Take a brief moment and imagine coming home, and as you open the door and walk into your house, what do you see? Form a visual impression of what your house looks like. You’ll also realize you can easily navigate the memory by proceeding to walk through your house, where you can visualize it from every perspective within it. This is the same way mental impressions are formed when you’re sensing things as “being them” or being in them as a part of the same memory.

All of what science refers to in abstract terms as “information” that’s inherent in the space around, also called the “ether”, exists as various forms of memory. When you tune into this cosmic soup of information, mental impressions form and play out in much the same way your own personal memories do. The space around us as the air and atmosphere, is what Esoteric Sciences refer to as the “astral plane” and “akasha”, which is where memory of all kinds is stored as an imprint or impression. Memory isn’t fixed or stagnate, but is a “living entity” that regenerates itself into infinite variations as a means of evolving itself. This field of dynamic living memory exists in the fundamental sense as “subtle energy”, which is the energy of the mind and soul formed through various “states of consciousness”. It’s not about this thought or that one, it’s more about a “mental state” as a vibratory frequency, out of which those “type of thoughts” naturally emerge, spontaneously propagate, and play out as a dynamic pattern formed through the natural behaviors that express those thoughts.

Divine Feminine

We all possess two fundamental aspects of the same mind, which operate on two levels simultaneously, referred to as a “higher and lower”, and “inner and outer”, which combine harmoniously in forming a single reality. While we’re within the material world of the greater, cosmic mind, these two aspects of our mind form our subconscious and lower conscious mind. Our conscious mind comes as our ability to actively create by “thinking” and imagining our thoughts as an inner experience, while our subconscious is passive and receptive, existing as the group mind that connects us to everything else, and as what takes our visual thoughts and forms them into “mental filters” as our perceptual lens. As we “think and form pictures of our thoughts” we use them to shape our outer reality through our ability to perceive them. What we form on the inner planes of our imagination becomes a “metaphorical seed” planted in our fertile subconscious where it’s built into our outer reality as a correlation. As we form and “inner experience” we shape the blueprint for forming an outer experience of the same type and kind.

Our conscious mind, which thinks by talking and forming pictures, is how we create and form ourselves as an individual, while our subconscious mind is always present within the greater whole of the group mind and is what connects us with everyone else as playing a complementary role in a much greater story. When we subdue our internal dialogue and our tendency to view the world through its outer appearance, while tuning into the energy around us by being “present”, we can perceive ourselves as being a natural part of a much larger dynamic that’s playing out. We can not only merge into and become one with the mind of another, or the group mind of several people who are all a part of the same situation or event, but we can also tune into what comes as glimpses of the future, where an impression of a future event involving the same people or type of situation plays out as a form of “group memory”.

The imagination is the faculty of the mind that we use to create in an intentional way, build our memories as an interpretation of events, and for recollecting and replaying the memories we’ve created of past experiences. It’s the part of the mind we receive ideas in whole form from a higher plane, translate them by adapting them to our mental model, and then transmit them through the astral field of the material plane where they can be conceived by others who are properly tuned to absorb them. We’re always tuning into, conceiving, and transmitting ideas within the greater mind of humanity. This same process of tuning into a particular frequency using feelings formed into thoughts, while maintaining a passive state, allows us to “move into” the center of living beings of all kinds where we become one with them in mind and spirit. We connect mentally with everything else through “resonance”. It’s what you might think of as a “soul to soul” connection, where you have the same feeling, and out of that feeling a whole story-line emerges and begins playing out as mental impressions.

Healing Power

Premonitions

Premonitions, which come in much the same way as other forms of intuition does, have a unique feel to them that make them stand out as being an actual glimpse into future events and experiences. I think premonitions of what we might call bad events tend to stand out more because of the feelings they elicit in us, which not only come as a dreadful feeling, but also tend to cause conflict and confusion. They tend to come in the same way memories of any kind do, except they form spontaneously out of the blue without being associated to a current event or situation of some kind. Due to a lack of association, they can seem like our own thoughts, often born out of fear of some kind that comes as a pervading feeling that won’t go away, or as a kind of snapshot or image that appears to be off in the distance that represents an event or sudden change of some kind. We often have good premonitions also, which come to us in the same way, but they don’t stand out because they don’t overwhelm us with a sense of fear and anxiety, so we often chalk them up to daydreaming and wishful thinking instead.

Premonitions that come as a preview or insight into a future event as a tragedy or unfortunate situation of some kind, can bring a sense of confusion because we don’t always know why we’re being shown it, and our first inclination is to assume it’s because we’re meant to prevent it by intervening somehow. Yet premonitions about future events and happenings can also come to us as a way of allowing us to prepare for them mentally and emotionally, or as intuitive insights into the bigger picture playing out as karma or Divine Providence. This can often come as a catch twenty-two, where we realize that even when we attempt to try and take control in a way that’s designed to change or alter the course of events already set in motion, in the larger sense, it simply takes a different course and ends in the same way. This strange phenomenon has been called “the butterfly effect”, where if you try to prevent it from happening the way you saw it, the same thing happens, but in a different way. This can also come as showing you the true nature of karma as personal destiny, where you learn to let go of your need to try and control the greater events of life.

I’ve experienced this phenomenon is three basic ways, one as a vision that allowed me to mentally prepare for what was coming, or as what was followed by “mental instructions” for what to do; as insight into what was going to happen that I could prevent through a certain course of action; and as showing me the significance of karma as a form of destiny that was unpreventable. This reminded me of Kennedy’s speech when he said, “let me change the things I can, accept the things I cannot, and the wisdom to know the difference”. Sometimes they come as spiritual guidance, and other times as a warning of what will come to pass that’s beyond our ability to control or change it. Sometimes it’s about “holding space” and witnessing what happens or going through it as an experience so you can be there to help others involved in the aftermath with an attitude of understanding. Usually the only way we have of knowing why we’re shown certain things is by going through them, taking action in relation to what we’re being shown, or in an attempt to alter or prevent them, and seeing whether or not they come into fruition. As we go through things, we get a feeling for them that allows us to identify their purpose more accurately.

etheric reality

Conceiving Higher Knowledge

Through the same type of process described above, we can also tune into and conceive of knowledge from a higher plane of consciousness that comes to us outside of our current knowledge base. Many people express this idea as tuning into a greater field and acting to “receive” information, yet this is a fundamentally incorrect way of describing it, because it’s often referring to “knowledge” contained within the astral field of mass consciousness, rather than true higher knowledge that comes from a source that’s outside of or beyond our material existence. At the subconscious level we all exist fundamentally as a part of the same group mind, referred to psychologically as the “collective unconscious”. This level of the mind is only tuned into the collective field that’s populated by human memory and animal instinct relevant to our species. In this process we’re given ideas as “thought-forms” that have already been developed by another person, and exists in the greater mind as memory. Thoughts that have been concentrated on, vitalized with magnetism and developed through a particular perspective on an idea, are recorded as an energetic imprint within the lower material mind, and come to us in a way that resembles “data”. People who claim to channel other entities, most of which are historical figures who are deceased, or what they call “spirit guides” and ancestors, where they receive information that’s “given to them”, are actually drawing on the Akasha field of collective memory, rather than a true “higher source”.

An easy way to recognize the difference comes by realizing that all information as ideas of a true higher plane, are archetypal in nature, and always serve as the source for developing in an individual and unique way. The higher plane of consciousness is “always” creative in nature, and simply provides the “archetypal seed” that’s “conceived” by the individual mind, where its gestated and developed into an idea that’s unique to the mind forming it as a personal creation. Higher knowledge does not exist in a dead, stagnate form that’s “fixed in nature”. It’s unformed and provides the basic concept for developing in a way that can be applied within our everyday life as a personal creation. Higher knowledge is a dynamic, living system that forms in a unique way every time it’s conceptualized and expressed. It’s always in the process of fluctuating and evolving into endless variations of itself.

Every idea of a truly higher nature exists in a state of “pure potential” that’s symbolic in nature, which is then formed by how it’s adapted to the individual paradigm, where it’s “shaped” to be of the same “image and likeness” of that paradigm. Once it’s built into that paradigm as a modification, it can be “birthed” by it as a reality that brings a particular type of experience. Knowledge exists as a fundamental idea that’s malleable and is shaped through a process of adaptation that modifies it to produce a new possibility as a “part of” the individual mind, where it appears outside of them as a natural part of their environment, formed through their perception, where it can be “experienced”. It’s the mind that shapes reality, not the other way around. When knowledge comes as what’s conveyed as “fact” or an idea that’s already been interpreted for you, where you don’t have to develop it internally, it’s not higher knowledge, but memory cast in the atmosphere around you by another, which can only be known by memorizing it or “quoting it” as coming from an outside source.

personal universe

This is the same way we’re “taught” what to think in school, by accepting another person’s idea as fact and memorizing it. This is a function of the lower subconscious which only acts to passively receive “ideas” that already exist as the creation of another. This can be easily recognized by the simple fact that any information received by “channeling” or acting as a “medium” for another entity of any kind, is never creative or unique in nature and only restates what’s already known. It never provides us with new information but comes as an interpretation of information. This is because our lower mind doesn’t have the ability to create in the basic sense and operates almost exclusively out of memory that’s symbolic and metaphorical in nature. The higher mind, on the other hand, creates by taking a idea in its potential state, and developing it in a way that’s unique to the character and knowledge base of the individual, and evolving it to new forms as a result.

All information from a truly higher source comes as an idea in “seed form” that’s “universal in nature”, and when drawn into the individual mind, is stimulated and activated by all the memory inherent in their mental paradigm, where it begins unfolding as an animation, “revealing” its hidden nature, where it brings you brand new insights into the same basic idea. An idea is shaped in a completely novel way by each mind conceiving it, where it becomes a “personal creation” born out of a universal concept and can be expressed harmoniously within and as a fundamental part of your everyday, normal perception. We translate and conform ideas to our mental paradigm, which is also comprised of living memory in a coherent state, and we reshape them accordingly. Every person will shape a universal concept in a way that’s unique to them. It doesn’t come by quoting it in the same way it was conceived as an interpretation. It’s interpreted and shaped by the mind itself where it becomes a natural part of it, and can therefore be perceived outwardly as a natural part of your reality. This is because we only “know” something through a direct and immediate experience of it, which only comes through our ability to perceive it within our outer environment. We only retain what we acquire through experience.

Higher knowledge is always communicated through symbols, composite images made out of symbols, and as metaphors that express as a universal theme. It exists as organized fields of information that flow as electromagnetic currents that propagate through space. We can tune into this field of dynamic information by visualizing an idea in symbolic form as a concept, while setting an intention by “asking” for more information about it. If we visualize an idea as a representation or metaphorical concept, and “activate it” by thinking about it in terms of what we already know, it comes alive with activity as a form of animation, and it begins taking on a life of its own where it continues to unfold showing us things we didn’t already know.

We learn brand new things through a self-contained, inner process that plays out in our imagination. We use our individual mind to tune into the same idea within the greater, unformed, cosmic mind of all creation. When we’re in our higher consciousness, all mental activity is creative in nature, and never comes in a preformed manner. It comes as a seed of information that’s grown to maturity in a fertile mind by becoming a coherent part of an existing formation. It’s only when we’re in our lower mind, which lacks creativity, that we “tune into” the akasha field of the existing collective memory of the group mind of mankind, that we’re “downloaded” with information that we imagine to be from a higher, or greater source that’s “outside of us”.

Knowledge that comes from a higher source designed to teach us, comes in much the same way as a symbolic idea that serves as a kind of “clue” that must be penetrated through an inquisition. There’s a number of ways we can do this, most of which come through a natural “chain of associated ideas” that immediately form in relation with it, and by researching or investigating it somehow. It’s only by acting on the clue we’re given that we find another clue, and another one comes by activating that one, and so forth, where we’re led into a greater idea as a form of “treasure hunt”. This same process is described intuitively as only being shown one step, rather than a whole process with a prophesied outcome, and it’s only by taking that step with a sense of faith and curiosity that the next step becomes apparent. We’re never shown the whole process or a final outcome as a means of being guided by a higher source, because it’s designed to lead us into a brand new idea that can’t be perceived through our current field of experiences, and we’re required to create it as we go.

Our ability to perceive an idea in its whole form only comes as possibilities born out of our current paradigm. New ideas can’t be perceived using our current memory-base, and require us to learn new things by taking gradual steps, where we consistently integrate new experiences to upgrade our model. We can’t conceive the outcome from our current perspective because it requires us to “grow into it”. This is what Jesus was teaching us when he said “ask and it shall be given, seek and you shall find, knock and the door shall be opened unto you”, and when he said “when the outer becomes the same as the inner, and the inner the same as the outer, you will have entered the gates of heaven”. In this case, “heaven” is referring to higher consciousness that’s conceived internally and adapted to become a natural part of our outer world as our perception of it. This is what allows us to realize that our outer world is formed as a reflection of our inner thoughts about it.

vibration transformation

All prayer, in the most basic sense, doesn’t come as asking for favors or requesting intervention that will somehow create in our life outside of our own ability to create it ourselves, but as a request to be shown what we’re having trouble seeing, or to be given more information around something, or as helping us see things in a way that will allow us to form a new understanding of it. This is because our world is being shaped by us and all knowledge from a higher level of the mind can only come “through us” by being integrated into our mental paradigm as the “lens we look through” in perceiving the outer world, which is being shaped and maintained “by” our paradigm.

Higher knowledge as guidance and instruction for creating also comes to us in the form of dreams and visions, which are always symbolic in nature, where their meaning can only be derived by how we interpret them. Some are vivid and intense, while others are strange, illogical, and vague. This is because the imagery being used comes as the expression of the “feeling” the dream gives you, and isn’t significant in and of itself. It’s only meant to communicate an idea that stems out of a feeling. The feeling is a “state” as a “theme” that plays out any number of ways, while still holding true to the main idea as a feeling. Being chased in a dream, for example, can come in any number of ways and as different scenarios and circumstances, because how or what you’re being chased by is simply expressing the feeling of being chased by something in your waking, daily life. Out of that feeling as a state of mind, comes any number of scenarios and pursuits that all express and convey the “feeling of being chased”.

Many people will try and interpret the dream by interpreting the imagery and material circumstances of the dream, without realizing that they were simply used as the means of expressing a feeling that can’t otherwise be appropriately expressed in their daily life. This same process works in our waking life, where a feeling comes as a mental state out of which numerous events are formed whose “experience” only serves to give us more of that same feeling. The easiest way to identify patterns you’re repeating consistently in your life, doesn’t come through the situations and circumstances themselves that are created, which can be played out in many different ways and with different people, but by noticing that they all act to give you more of the same feeling. That feeling exists as a theme that always tells the same kind of story. Whether it’s at home, work, at the grocery store, or engaging in a conversation with friends, all your experiences evolve out of telling the same type of story, which expresses the same feeling as a pervading mood, while multiplying and giving you more of it.

Forming an Understanding of it as a Whole

Intuition, no matter what form it comes in, is the faculty of the higher, conscious mind that forms awareness of everything as a “greater whole” or single movement, that comes as a form of memory. It comes as knowing about something without knowing why or how you know. Clairvoyance comes as an inner vision of a moment in time that’s playing out as a greater story, where you perceive it from a higher level in complete form. It ties the past, present, and future together as a unification. A premonition of the future comes by “remembering it”. Not in absolute terms as the nature of the event itself or particular way it plays out in your mind’s eye, but in terms of what results, no matter how it comes about. Destiny is an end result that can come about in an endless variety of ways or through what seems like different decisions, which simply changes the way it comes about.

All memory is recollected and remembered using the imagination to replay it, and memory itself is also “created” in the imagination and is what forms the basis for producing reality as our “perception of it”. The higher, conscious mind uses imagination to create in a new and novel way, while the lower, subconscious mind uses it to replay memories as the means of constructing our outer world to bring us more and more of the same type of experiences. When we create solely by remembering or memorizing ideas given to us in completed form, we use our imagination in a passive way to create a joint reality out of whatever we’ve been taught or given by others, and when we use it actively, by thinking for ourselves and tuning into higher knowledge of archetypes, symbols, and metaphor, we use it to create in a new and more individual way.

No matter how we look at it, memory, whether formed unconsciously or with awareness and intention, is what forms the thematic template for structuring all our experiences. If we form our reality out of shared memory of the group mind, we keep ourselves locked into an unconscious state where we experience life as “happening to us” or “acting on us” as an outside force, and we become like an “animal”, governed by instinctual impulses. If we learn how to use our intuition in forming new ideas on the inner planes of an active imagination, we step into our higher power and begin shaping ourselves as an individual where we form reality as a means of experiencing ourselves through our own creation, and as we truly are on the higher planes of the awakened, self-conscious mind.

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

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

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

Imagination

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

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

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

The Second Stage of Awakening – “Transformation”

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

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

The Illusion of Time and Space

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

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

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

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

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

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

My Experience and what I Learned about the True Nature of the Soul from doing Past Life Regressions

I was born into this life a natural skeptic and never took anything at face value. From as far back as I can remember, whenever I encountered a religious, spiritual, or psychic idea of any kind, whether it was in church or at a neighbor’s house who did astrology or psychic readings, if something didn’t make sense to me, I didn’t “believe it”, and instead took an attitude of investing it to find the error involved. It was as if there was a part of me that knew the truth and I had a well-developed form of intuition. I also gravitated passionately towards the sciences and philosophy and took up a devoted study of these subjects at a very young age. So naturally, when I came into what’s now called “spiritual sciences” (Sacred or Esoteric Sciences), it was like coming home. Yet the modern-day versions of this formed by what we call the “new age movement”, grossly distorted much of the teachings through a lack of comprehension regarding the universal laws involved and how to accurately interpret them in developing true intuition and sound scientific methods for traversing the multidimensional planes that are all interlaced within this one.

As I went along in life I went through many challenging situations where I learned about my true spiritual nature and practice through the experience of seeming to know what to do and having many strengths and virtues already developed as a fundamental part of my nature. I pursued education in Naturopathic Medicine, Herbology, and traditional Psychology, and finally ended up in “Esoteric Sciences”, which turned out to be my true love. I earned my Bachelor of Science in Clinical Hypnotherapy, which is an in-depth study of the mind and the principles involved in using different aspects (the self-conscious and higher conscious) to program and direct the creation of the subconscious, which is the aspect of our mind constructing and projecting our entire material reality out of our mental paradigm. This same operation, which is occurring all the time at the unconscious level, can also be performed through hypnotherapy. My doctorate is in Esoteric Sciences, which expanded into self-mastery, understanding the universal laws governing the mind and creation, the Healing Arts, and of course our psychic, astral aspect, also referred to as our soul.

Sacred Geometry

As I went through my studies, I also took seminars on a regular basis that often included 3 and 4 day workshops at the end, that went into specific subjects and the different methods for practicing these. Strangely enough, I never had an interest in past life regression, because I wasn’t sure how I felt about it, and as a result of the fact that I wasn’t comfortable allowing others to try and hypnotize me, because so few people actually understand the principles involved or know how to do it in a proficient and effective manner. But one of the workshops I signed up for and paid for in advance was canceled, and there was no refunds, so I had to pick another workshop. A class on Past Life Regression (PLR) was being taught by a man who was world renowned for his methods, so I decided to explore it with an open mind. After going through the 4 day workshop and undergoing several regressions, I realized this was one of the greatest methods for “true healing” I had ever come across, and pursued it from that point on with an attitude of perfecting it as a method conducted through a well-written script (most hypnotic processes are performed using scripts).

Through the course of the next few years, I took several classes and workshops and became totally involved in developing my method to a point where there was never any form of “suggestion” being given, and by achieving “rapport” as a primary form of mental entrainment (natural hypnosis as mind-reading), where I could literally “see” in my mind’s eye a vague impression of their perceptions. I also had others use my own method whenever I underwent a regression and was able to move into the memories of past lives buried deep within my own psyche (our souls constitution is comprised of memory) with vivid detail. Not so much in terms of the physical features and elements of that life, but more in terms of what that life was about, the drama as thematic patterns that were being played out that I was also playing out in this life, albeit in a different way, and the realizations that resulted from them. From these experiences I knew where my intuition was coming from, and I was able to see my karma in a new light where I knew what it was I needed to do as a means of rectifying it.

I later went on to become board certified by the IBRT (International Board of Regression Therapy), wrote professional manuals on it, and conducted professional training for years. I also practiced extensive forms of meditation over the years and developed heightened mental abilities, one of which was what we call the “witnessing” faculty, which takes on a third-person perspective and simply observes the activities of the “mind” from a neutral and detached perspective. In this article, I’m simply going to convey what I learned through open minded exploration, extensive practice, and from direct experience that wasn’t based on preconceived beliefs or “suggestions” given by an inexperienced practitioner.

Past Lives as a Psychic Reading

Let me start by assuring you that there is no such thing as having a “past life reading” by a psychic of some kind. When you take this approach, you’re engaging in an “illusion” as a very basic form of suggestion, and you can’t know what a past life was “about” without “being in the experience of it”, where natural realizations arise, and you make a direct connection to your current life in terms of “patterns” being played out that all have a common theme to them. If you understand that memories are patterns of thought that have certain frequencies, and were created by “you”, which means the same inner nature, mind, and soul, and you understand the basic laws of physics as “vibration”, you’ll realize that you “access memory” through “resonance”, and only you can access your own memories of past lives in terms of being “in them” with the same “feelings” you had as an experience.

Hypnotic regression is the only true method for doing this, and as you realize things about your past lives, you’ll also come to understand and thereby learn to “trust” your intuition. A lot of times your intuition (inner knowing) around things is formed out of knowledge you acquired and integrated into your being in past lives, and now comes as an inner knowing or special abilities of some kind. The other challenge you’re going to face is being able to find a truly good hypnotherapist, because unfortunately this area has been bastardized by those who take weekend certification courses and then call themselves “hypnotherapists” and concentrate more on writing cool scripts than on the actual psychology of what they’re doing. Because they lack a basic understanding of how the subconscious works, they often conduct the process by feeding you constant suggestions, which the subconscious readily takes in and imagines as a form of memory, and you go on a purely imaginary journey as a result. Both imaginary ideas and memory are created in the faculty of the imagination, making it easy to confuse them. One of the biggest differences comes in the fact that actual memories give rise to a whole series of “realizations” that are systematically born out of them and form an intimate connection to your current life in terms of similar patterns and ideas being played out. I know a few people who are very popular and considered experts in PLR and what they call “in-between lives”, whose script leads everyone to the same reality and conclusion without them seeming to realize that it’s because they’re giving them constant suggestions by the type of questions they ask and the language they use.

What I came to Realize through Experience

Much of what I learned through experience that was born out of memory was completely unexpected and a bit mind-boggling in relation to conventional thought on the nature of the mind, soul, time, and reality. Here are some rather interesting ideas that came from experience. I’ll start off with a general description of consistent features that not only accompanied my own experiences, but just about everyone I regressed, all without any suggestion born out of the type of questions I was asking.

All regressions begin by setting an intention or making a specific type of inquiry. Whatever “intention” you set for the regression determines what memory (life) you access. Most ask for information about a problem or relationship, but you can also ask for information around gifts, talents, special abilities, life purpose, and life-long interests.

Some hypnotists will get distracted with things designed to “prove” past lives are real by asking about things like what year it is, what’s your name, what town are you in, and so on, which is meaningless in the most basic sense and will hardly ever stand out unless it was an important part of your experience.

What’s important isn’t so much the actual setting or events and circumstances of that life, but how you experienced it, how you felt, what psychological dramas you were playing out as life themes, and how they all culminated as “realizations” you formed because of them. This is because at the end of each life our memory is formed as a summation and conclusion we form around what that life was about and how we created and developed our “self” as a result. This is the actual memory that’s absorbed and assimilated into the higher part of our soul, which is constantly evolving by acquiring memory of itself through numerous personalities and different life situations, all of which bring new types of experiences while playing out the same type of life themes. We evolve our soul’s memory through that life, whether unconsciously or with conscious awareness, and the accumulated experiences are synthesized into a whole memory as our character and inner nature, which becomes the “karmic seed” for a new and succeeding life cycle. Every life provides us with a step in our souls overall growth and becomes the means through which we “evolve” ourselves by learning how to create from a primarily conscious state of self-awareness.

Stargate

As you go through the “death experience” of that life, which you should always do, you have clear and profound realizations of what that life was about in terms of what was meaningful and what wasn’t. In going through the experience of dying and transcending my body, as well as other people’s experience, I realized that our experience of dying is based on our beliefs in that life. We form our experience out of our beliefs and expectations just like we do in life, because it’s the “same mind” that’s creating both. It’s our mind that transcends our body as our soul and it continues to create its own experiences in the afterlife. I realized with a deepened sense of clarity that there’s no such thing as death in terms of the mind and spirit, it’s only the body and the identity created through our body that dies. We continue to create our experience in death, which is merely a different dimension of existence, in much the same way we create our experiences in living, except we no longer associate our “self” with being our body. We take on a much more universal identity, formed through numerous lifetimes and personalities where we have a direct awareness of being the one who created that life experience from a primarily unconscious state. Every death experience I had was different, even though they all involved a similar process.

The only part of us that’s carried forward after death is what we acquired through experience and practice, where it was “built into” (integrated) our subconscious and became a natural part of our nature and character. All synthesis takes place through “experience” where its integrated into our mental paradigm as a coherent memory that forms a “holographic model” also known as our etheric double or “light body”. Any idea or education only held as a theory and never practiced and acquired through direct experience, dies with the body. It’s only what we acted to “create” as an experience of ourselves that we carry forward into future lives.

We play out the same karmic patterns as theme-based dramas with the same group of souls, and by playing different parts and roles in the same overall idea. We can recognize these souls by looking in their eyes. The eyes always reveal the soul of a person, regardless of what they look like. The relationship is always similar in nature regardless of gender, role, culture, or status, and the same type of feeling and dynamic is played out through a different set of conditions and circumstances. We continue to play out these same dynamics and life themes with the same souls until we act within our own life to transform them.

As you relive any part of that life, you’re also making a direct connection to that same feeling and idea playing out in your current life. This connection comes from the “feeling” you have, and the dynamic associated with it that naturally emerges out of that feeling. Many past life memories come more as feelings that form vague impressions that seem far off in the distance and have a sense of familiarity around them. Almost like a déjà vu that you can’t quite put your finger on.  

There’s always 2 parts of you reliving the memory – one is directly in the experience as the body having it from within it, while another part of you is removed from it and viewing it like a movie while overseeing the greater process. These different aspects of yourself can be thought of as your higher self, which never incarnates into the physical body or material world, but remains outside of it, “watching” or witnessing it, while also conducting, orchestrating and administering it. This aspect of the soul is also what we can call the true “conscious mind” of a higher plane, that’s always awake and aware from a detached, rational, and unemotional perspective, and serves to guide and teach us through prayer, dreams, and intuition. The part of us that’s in the body and directly experiencing the story that’s playing out, is our lower soul, which enters an unconscious state and plays out the drama without realizing it’s all being created by them, and so they mistake it as being real and all there is.

Whatever conclusion we draw as realization at the end of the life, becomes the basis for the next life where the same basic idea is reestablished through our conditioning and life situation, where we either continue to play it out unconsciously, or we begin realizing we have the ability and means to transform and lead it by use of our conscious mind, and through this awareness of our true nature, dissolve unconscious patterns and begin creating and directing our life experiences from a self-aware state. This comes by detaching from the emotions involved in any situation, which are always attached to memories, and begin viewing and processing everything through our rational, reasoning mind, where we see it in a different light and can easily direct our own behavior and actions.

Phoenix

Many of our natural fears, apprehensions, phobia’s, anxiety around different ideas, and tendencies that can’t be explained as being acquired through our current life, were formed in previous lives and come to us through deep seated memory that’s not “seen” but “felt” in a pronounced and all-pervading manner. The memory formed out of these experiences become our higher soul’s constitution as our nature, personality, and character.

Our physical appearance and general features tend to be similar in every life, regardless of gender or race. This may be due to the fact that our “mind” is what forms itself as our etheric/astral blueprint which is used to construct our body and general makeup, and this same “image of ourselves” as a hologram is formed and evolved through each incarnation, varying only by how the mind itself evolves from lifetime to lifetime. We also form the same basic “personality”, varying only by the influences of our genetic makeup and gender or cultural conditioning. Every lifetime I experienced I had similar features, characteristics, and type of personality, all of which only varied in degree from my current life.

Once a past life is revisited and viewed from within it, it comes as a vague memory at first, that can seem far off in the distance yet imbued with a pronounced feeling of affinity. Once this memory is brought into our current life it acts like a seed for opening the door between what seems like the past and present, and as we go through our everyday life more and more memories or realizations come into our awareness, either in a spontaneous way, or through associations of some kind. New details seem to unfold in a continuous manner, in much the same way a flower blooms or a seedling grows to maturity. As this happens, you become more and more aware of the karma involved, and you become much clearer on what you need to do in this lifetime to resolve and redeem yourself by rectifying or counterbalancing it.

The Mind-Boggling Nature of Deeper Planes of Existence

As I went along, viewing several lifetimes, I came into direct contact with a deeper awareness that these lifetimes weren’t happening in a singular, linear timeline, where one followed another in a synchronized fashion, but instead seemed to be happening “all at once”. This came in a direct sense when I had visited one life, realized the pattern-theme I was acting out, and how that same tendency was playing out in my current life, and I resolved it (healed myself of it psychologically), and when I revisited that same life later through an intention I set, the dynamic that had been playing out earlier had changed, and I was no longer acting it out. At first this struck me as being strange and somewhat confusing, so I did it a couple of more times, and found it resulted in the same phenomena. I then did the same process with a few other people without telling them what I was doing, and again, got the same result.

This is when I really started grasping the true significance of “time” being an illusion (created by the conscious mind), and is actually “cyclical” in nature, and that the reason “prophecy was possible”, was because from a higher or outer plane everything on the lower inner plane had “already happened” and was being viewed in its entirety. We are simply “submerged within it” as a means of experiencing ourselves through it as a part of it. The same principle plays out on different levels and scales, one nested within the other as coherent states, and we’re all playing out a personal story within the greater story of mankind that are of a similar nature. Much like a hologram where the part contains the whole, and the whole contains the part, because they’re comprised of the same information being viewed from different perspectives and being interpreted in a way that makes it into a personal experience.

I then realized that some “lives” appeared to be running concurrently, or through “overlapping time-frames”. Some lifetimes that were being conducted from different bodies and life circumstances by the “same soul”, seemed to overlap each other by several years. Where two or three were “alive” at the same time at different places on Earth, all playing out a similar theme through a similar personality. This brought a whole new perspective to the idea that we’re all born as “twins”, and the scientific principle of entanglement, polarity, and quantum superposition, where a person can appear in two places at once, and the fact that we’re all multidimensional beings living on different levels simultaneously and the realization that “all lives” were happening at the same time. If we change the “state” of one as its inner constitution, the others all change in the same way instantaneously because they’re all being produced by the same soul. Not as a pathway of communication, but because they were all the “same essence”, the same thing. The physical body exist simultaneously as a waveform. This gave me new insight into the idea of the soul being “eternal” and not living within the time-space continuum, but existing on a higher or greater level where time doesn’t exist, and the now known fact that time is a mental construct formed by our conscious mind and doesn’t exist at the subconscious level.

After encountering these ideas, which were mind-boggling in terms of how we’ve been taught to think about time, I was walking down the beach on a moonlit night, and I had a distinct vision of myself as an accomplished teacher and speaker, while also wondering why I had never had a “spiritual teacher” in my life. I always seemed to be self-taught, no matter what I embarked on. I was literally modeling an “image of myself” that seemed like a form of memory. Even when I was going to school for Spiritual Sciences I was always involved in a very independent way of thinking about things that seemed to come about through a form of memory as “knowing”, which I simply attributed to my creative nature, when I suddenly realized this vision of myself that I was “modeling” was actually myself in “the future”. This led me to exploring the possibility of doing “future progressions”. What I discovered from doing this was that I could access my future self in this life, but that my future self as a different person, wasn’t on this same plane and type of experience, and hadn’t been determined yet, because it was based on how I continued to develop myself through the choices I made and how I formed my moral nature based on those choices.

This led me to realize that life comes as an evolutionary process of growth and development conducted by our own hand, and that while we can change the past by changing the same karmic patterns playing out in the present, we can’t know the future life until we conclude this one, because it’s based on the summation of this point in our evolution as a “single memory”. I also seemed to lead me into the idea that whenever we’re faced with a major life decision that will change our path in a significant or fundamental way, that the path we were on before making the decision keeps on playing out on a parallel plane while we begin creating a new path through our decision. It came as more of a fork in the road where even though we chose to go down one, the other remained and led to its destination. This completely changed the way I thought about reality and the multidimensional nature of my soul that contradicted everything I had been taught.

This brought me in touch with the “Law of Paradox”, where one idea of a similar nature appears to completely contradict another one, yet both exist and are true. This is the point where we realize through direct experience that different planes operate according to different laws and exist in polarity to each other as correspondences and possibilities. With this realization I came to understand how we can use the laws of a higher plane to work with the laws and forces of the lower plane and transmute them as a result. We can transcend the lower plane by vibrating on the higher one that corresponds with it. The reason we can’t accurately see future lives is because the future is being created in the moment by our thoughts and decisions, and the actions we take as a result of them. We are the one creating our self and our future life through active use of choice and free will, and this would be taken away from us if we were to see a future, we hadn’t acted to create for ourselves. To show us what our future holds would violate our free will and ability to be self-determined, which is a universal law that all beings must obey.

Any future life is based on the frequency we cultivate in this life through how we create our experiences and then integrate them into our mental model as memory of ourselves. Our mental model is steadily developed throughout our life and becomes the “karmic seed” for continuing the same idea in our next life. There isn’t a planning process performed by a kind of committee, it’s all based on vibration as the patterns we establish and maintain. Whoever we act out thematic patterns with as a shared reality, we continue to incarnate with where we play out the same type of patterns while playing different roles in those same patterns. It’s the patterns of our life as a general theme that we use to shape our identity, and it’s our identity (“I” and “I AM”) that determines our future life.

General Conclusions

These are the realizations I formed from direct experience, some of which completely defied common beliefs that we’ve been taught through conventional means. Through hypnosis, where we completely subdue and put to sleep the self-conscious, thinking aspect of our mind, and we reside fully within the subconscious, which contains all the memories we’ve acquired in a deep and somewhat latent form, can be directed to recall memories of specific lifetimes based on the intention we set as a form of “self-inquiry” about our own nature. Whatever intention you set as a way of asking for more information around an area of your current life, directs your subconscious to reference and access that memory. It does this by recalling only the significant events of that lifetime that pertain to your question, because each life is synthesized into a single memory as a mental model that contains all the information acquired through experience in a single and coherent state. This operates in much the same way you form and maintain memory in your current life, where you only remember and can recall the events that had a significant emotional impact and played a major role in how you formed your identity by how you interpreted them. How many people can remember the address of the house they lived in when they we a kid by the time they’re in their 60’s or 70’s? Especially if they moved around allot as a child. It’s the major events of our life that shape us and that we continue to use throughout our life as a means of creating more of the same type of experiences.

There’s no such thing as a series of single memories that are independent and unrelated to each other or to all your memories. All perceptions, projections, reorganization of information, interpretations, meaning, and internal dialogue is formed out of the same mental model to form how we experience the events of our life, and we reabsorb all our experiences back into the same model that produced them as a variation, where they’re integrated in a way that’s harmonious with the whole, upgrading it accordingly as a primary means of evolving it to a higher and more expanded level of understanding. This is how it is that we’re always creating ourselves by how we restructure our reality to form how we experience it, and then identify with our own creation.

What’s referred to as a “life review” we have as we’re dying that comes as a part of transitioning, where we view the significant events of our life through what appears as a chronological timeline, and we have the “experience” that we “caused others” through our actions, is the integrative process as a summary of all our life experiences into a single model that forms our “nature” (soul essence). Our internal essence as our character forms into what becomes our predisposition, temperament, attitude, tendencies, beliefs, values, preferences, life theme, memories, and internal image of ourselves, and is what forms the basis for our next life. It’s all formed into a single paradigm and becomes our karmic seed for the next life experience as a continuation born out of the same essence. Each life is simply one part and perspective in a continuous evolutionary growth process, where we’re the only one acting on ourselves as a means of evolving ourselves through various life cycles.

Realizing your True Self and Embodying your Power to Consciously Create Yourself

The process of personal transformation (Alchemy) as a form of spiritual regeneration comes as a process that has two basic stages. The first stage is what’s often referred to as our psychological healing, where we shed our false ego built through our formative conditioning, and the second comes by learning how to employ the principles necessary for developing our self to a higher level of self-awareness and creativity. The first stage is necessary as a means of laying the proper foundation for creating ourselves through our ability to develop our true character from a fully conscious and self-aware state. This stage of transformation comes by identifying and removing all the “false-images and ideas” we’ve taken on about ourselves that cover over or prevent our true light from shining through. Most of us start out in life by absorbing and taking on other people’s ideas about “who” and “how” we should be and by the time we’ve become young adults we’ve lost touch with who we are in terms of our essential nature, what our life purpose is, or what we came here to learn through experience as a means of evolving ourselves.

Each one of us is born into life as a “karmic seed” that’s comprised of an archetypal matrix of qualities and characteristics that form a distinct theme, which contains the entire “plan for our life” (Divine Providence) that unfolds through a natural growth process. We are perfectly “designed” to fulfill our life purpose which unfolds in a synchronized manner as a correlated series of events that set natural processes in motion. The events of our life unfold with perfect timing because one naturally arises and evolves out of the other as an expression of our consciousness. As we go through one life experience, we develop inherent parts of our character and our mental model, which is comprised of the memory attained through our experiences, which sets up the circumstances necessary for the next series of events to evolve out of in a completely natural way. Our character forms our essential nature as our personality out of which all our natural behaviors are formed and come in an automatic way. Our mental paradigm is what forms the “lens” we “look through” as a means of perceiving the outer world.

Nothing comes into our life until we are ready for it as a level and quality of consciousness because we’re the one projecting it and “calling it forth” through our vibratory frequency. A frequency has both a pattern and a self-assembling mechanism inherent in it that works at both the unconscious and conscious level simultaneously. We all have what we can call a “signature frequency” (formed as our mental paradigm) that works through the greater field of information surrounding us (outer reality) to only activate and bring forth in that field what “matches” our paradigm through “resonance”. What we perceive as an outer reality is a field of information that exists in a neutral state of “probability”. Each one of us vibrates at our own unique frequency, and we energetically “influence” the outer field into a configuration that correlates with the thematic pattern of our mental model. Each person “acts on” the same field of information (consciousness) by only vibrating the parts that are congruent with their paradigm and uses the selected parts to reform it in a way that brings a consistent version of reality as an experience of “themselves”. Our outer reality reflects our inner reality, because both created by the same “mind”. We tend to think of ourselves as a physical being within a neutral reality that’s objective in nature, but the fact is all reality as we’re capable of knowing and experiencing it, is subjective in nature, and formed in a way that’s unique to us as our own creation. Every single person who views that same reality as a material formation (tree, house, car, landscape, etc.), will experience it in a slightly different way, based on the structure of the “mind”.

The outer reality is formed through our perception of it as a mental construct. Our mind is constructed of information that’s highly organized and synthesized into a coherent model. It forms a dynamic series of correlated “filters” that are superimposed over our outer reality as a way of reorganizing it into a construct that reflects our paradigm. These filters are primarily formed by beliefs, values, preferences, temperament, perspective, and memories, which are all synthesized into a “single model”. These filters are interactive as different aspects of a greater whole in much the same way each of our character traits blend harmoniously in forming our personality and producing all our natural and unconscious behaviors. Beliefs can be very hard to recognize as such due to the fact that our mind acts naturally (at the unconscious level) to construct the reality of our beliefs, making them seem real.

Two Minds

The Dual Nature of our Mind

We’re always working in every moment to shape our physical existence using two primary aspects of our mind and self, called our subconscious and self-conscious, which make up what we refer to as our “lower self”. This aspect of our mind is comprised of both our instinctual, emotional, conditioned self, and our self-aware, rational, intellect, which builds whole realities out of thoughts. Our intellect is the aspect of our material mind that forms our outer awareness as our “waking mind” and is what forms our internal dialogue as thoughts that run constantly in a habitual manner. Our thinking mind of outer awareness is the aspect of our self that perceives the outer reality being projected by our subconscious and interprets the events of our life to make them “mean” something. Whatever meaning we give something forms the story we tell ourselves about it which forms the basis for how we “experience ourselves” through our own self-created story about things. As we tell ourselves a story about something, we “sense ourselves” through it and begin identifying with it as a result.

Meaning, like the mind that produces it, is also threefold in nature, and whatever meaning we give an event or situation, means something about us, about others, and about the way the world is in general. The world in general sets the stage necessary for playing out our story in a way that makes sense, where we’re the main star and others are the costars of our movie. We create on three levels to form a single idea where every element is a logical and cohesive part of the same overall story. This way we can play out smaller stories within greater stories of the same basic idea. We’re always creating in a cohesive manner out of a coherent model where the same idea plays out harmoniously on multiple levels and scales of increasing complexity.

If you pay close attention to your own thoughts, you’ll notice that there’s always “one part of you” talking to “another part of you”. You’re always talking to yourself inside your mind, explaining, describing, justifying, and forming a narrative around things that are also being “projected” by your own “mental model” as your perception, and then being interpreted through your model to form a story about them. The experience formed is then “reabsorbed and synthesized” back into your model as a variant that acts to upgrade it somehow. This process of inner dialogue as “storytelling” is the most primary and completely natural way you’re always in the process of using your self-conscious mind to “program” your subconscious to produce the “reality of your thoughts” as an “experience of yourself”. You’re always the one creating the reality that you then use as the means of experiencing yourself. What we’re referring to here as “yourself” isn’t your body and personality, its your mind and soul. Your soul exists as your “entire reality”, not just an aspect of it.

As we have emotionally intense experiences as a child, we try to make sense of them by telling ourselves a story about what they mean. Due to the fact that our rational, logical, reasoning mind hasn’t begun developing yet (starts developing at puberty), our interpretation stems from the emotion we’re experiencing because of the event. As we form emotional interpretations of why something is happening and what it means about us, we also start forming natural behaviors that we do in an automatic fashion anytime we’re experiencing that same emotion without direct awareness of what we’re doing or why. As we continue to play them out in a consistent and unconscious manner they become a major “creative factor” and we build “mental complexes” out of them.

A complex comes as an idea about ourselves, such as . . . I’m not loved, wanted, worthy, good enough, smart enough, and so on, and go on to become the “theme” of our “life story” and what we use as the means of experiencing ourselves and shaping our identity as we grow into young adults. A complex comes as a whole dynamic (pattern) that’s played out at both the unconscious and conscious level. We maintain the behavior that we associate with causing the activity at an unconscious level as a way of initiating the dynamic, and then live it out with awareness where we form the illusion that the other person is “doing it to us”. We fail to see our part in co-creating it because we remain unaware of what it is we’re doing that produces a consistent response. Our “life theme” is what forms our perception of the world outside of ourselves and what we use to not only bring alive and rearrange our reality to match our interpretation, but as the means of creating ourselves (our character and identity) through a consistent type of experience that we build up over time.

A person who feels they’re “not good enough”, for example, will only “see” in any situation what can be used to create an experience of it, and will interpret any situation and set of behaviors being displayed by others to “mean”, once again, they’re not good enough. They will unconsciously continue to display the same type of behaviors that led to them feeling as if they weren’t good enough, and that caused others to treat them that way as a result, while remaining unaware of what they’re doing that’s causing it. If someone compliments or admires them, they’ll simply interpret it in a way that makes it out to mean whatever they need it to in order to keep telling their story about themselves. Such as, you’re just being nice, you don’t mean it, you’re not sincere, or you just want something from me. They’ll somehow interpret even the most positive intentions and behaviors to match their belief about themselves. This is how we get “locked into” a false reality produced by our own beliefs and can live our whole life out of a delusion without ever realizing it’s something we’re making up.

By the time our rational intellect starts developing and coming into play in a dominant role where we can form new interpretations from a rational perspective (starts around 12 to 14 years old, and is fully active around 21 to 28 years of age), we’ve already built up our story as strong feelings and beliefs about ourselves, and we use our creative mind to build a narrative out of our story instead of as the means of transforming it. By the time our conscious mind comes into play as our individuality, we’ve already established our mental model out of our conditioning and how we interpreted things as a child, and we continue to “see” and “create” the same type of experiences. This is because what we call our conscious mind is an aspect of our subconscious that’s birthed completely within the reality formed by our subconscious. Instead of using our conscious mind to dissolve our emotional delusions and begin telling a new kind of story, we use it as a means of embellishing our story and forming our identity out of it.

The Archetypal Design of our Soul as our Karmic Seed

Our karmic seed comes as our “inner nature” and personality as a form of archetypal design (revealed through our astrological birth-chart) based on how we’ve developed and grown ourselves in previous lifetimes, and by how we’ve created out of a unconscious state. This comes as a completely natural part of ourselves as our character, which forms our predisposition, temperament, natural tendencies, talents, special abilities, and interests in life. Our karma is “set-up” and reestablished through our formative conditioning through a “cause and effect” process of “stimulus – response”. Our life situation and family dynamics are always acting to stimulate and call forth certain aspects of our character, where they’re expressed and developed into habitual patterns through the dynamics being played out. Other parts of our character remain dormant and unstimulated and form what becomes the basis for our “latent potential”. Potential that remains dormant and undeveloped within us can only be activated naturally through live situations that serve to stimulate, awaken, and call it forth as a natural response where it’s then utilized as a means of handling the situation. We can also develop ourselves in a conscious manner by recognizing what lies hidden within us, and deciding to bring it forth and begin utilizing it by intentionally employing it in our daily life.

All “properties” have behaviors inherent in them that are only brought out and expressed through an interaction of complementary opposites. Its’ only through “contrast” as the natural relationship between opposites of the same idea that aspects of ourselves are brought into creative expression where we can use them to experience ourselves in new ways. As we create new experiences of ourselves, we start building up those experiences as a way of defining ourselves with new qualities. We can only work to develop qualities in ourselves when they’re being stimulated from an outside, complementary source of some kind, and are in an active state. Even when we decide to start utilizing latent aspects of our nature in a willful manner through imaginary processes, where we play out various scenarios while designing a new response that replaces an old one, we only know if it worked when we’re in a live situation where we’re actually being stimulated, and it comes forth as a natural response.

We often think we’ve formed new patterns that resolve and transform issues born out of our conditioning because we’ve developed and replayed them in our mind over and over, giving our subconscious a new pattern as an automatic response. But we don’t ever really know if it took hold and is permanent until we’re involved in a live interaction where strong emotions associated with our issue as an “activating device” are being openly displayed and projected towards us and we employ the new response without having to think about. However, what we can do in a live situation is immediately recognize what’s being activated within us and why, and through this awareness gain control of ourselves where we can use the new pattern we’ve rehearsed mentally as an alternative that can be employed without having to design it on the spot. Often, what the imaginary process does is give you an alternative reaction you can employ as a well-thought-out idea in the heat of the moment when you’re being emotionally triggered. One of the problems we can have in forming new responses is that in the moment when we’re being triggered by an outside stimulus we can’t think clearly and don’t have an alternative we can use in its place as a means of consciously managing the situation and bringing our own reaction under our control. When we change our own reactions and the behaviors and activities that automatically issue forth out of them, we begin transforming our experiences and our “self” by way of those experiences.

Clouded Mind

Removing False Ideas about Yourself

 The first stage of transformation comes by separating out what’s false from what’s true. You must recognize and then remove ideas that you’ve taken on about yourself that were given to you by others, formed out of how others judged you, established through guilt, shame, or obligation, as a means of controlling you, or that you developed in order to be accepted by a particular social group. The most basic way to do this is by learning to recognize your own “essence” as a form of “design”. Step outside of the image you’ve built up in your mind about yourself, let go of the attachments you’ve formed to this idea about yourself, and begin soul-searching by asking yourself some basic questions. You know when your answer is true and therefor relevant, because in answering it a whole series of correlated realizations will spontaneously arise out of it as a chain of associated ideas that act to expand it.

Start off with questions like . . .

  • What have you always had a natural interest in and always felt compelled towards?
  • What is it you’ve always felt an attraction towards as a kind of affinity?
  • What kind of activities do you enjoy doing and look forward to with a sense of excitement and anticipation?
  • What kind of ideas fill you with a sense of purpose in life?
  • When you were a kid, what type of ideas and roles did you naturally aspire towards? Who were your favorite characters and types of stories?
  • What is it that you consistently gravitate towards and see yourself doing?
  • What is it that when you engage in it energizes you and gives you a deepened sense of satisfaction and well-being?
  • What type of situations make you feel like you’re in your element?
  • When you think about your life, what is it that you consistently see yourself doing as a kind of vision for your life?
  • What special abilities and natural talents do you have?
  • What kind of things do you love?
  • What kind of ideas give you a sense of purpose out of which a whole vision of your life naturally emerges as a vivid possibility?
  • As an adult, what roles do you naturally play in life? (caretaker, parent, teacher, activist, leader, innovator, problem-solver, encouraging others, etc.)
  • What skills have you developed that came natural to you?
duality

If you answer these types of questions by “journaling about them” (writing out answers in an in-depth manner where other ideas spontaneously emerge), it’ll open a gate that allows you to access and touch upon deeper parts of yourself that may have been dulled and covered over, skewed to a new form, or conditioned out of you. Again, all answers must be based on you and only you and not from an idea someone else gave you or told you was true about you, or what you “should do and be like” as a form of judgment. This is purely your own feelings and ideas about yourself and your life that exist “within in”.

The important thing to remember here is that we’re all born into this life with a “vision” for our life that comes natural as a form of “seed”. We are “designed” with all the qualities and traits necessary to fulfill that vision through natural processes and by learning to utilize all of our potential through the activity the vision naturally requires. You don’t have to “try” to be who you really are because it’s built into your nature, and you do it naturally. The only “effort” you put into “becoming” is when you’re taking on and attempting to become something you’re not. Spirit always works through Universal laws as natural processes, which proceed out of our core being in an effortless manner as a kind of “flow”. When that flow is impeded and we cut ourselves off from our true source, we begin struggling in life, and have to apply great effort in trying to create because we’re working against or contrary to the natural laws.

Everything you need to create your life as your soul’s purpose in coming here, you’re born with. It resides inside of you as a seed that grows and blossoms. We don’t ever “acquire” anything from outside us that we don’t already have. The only purpose the outside serves is to stimulate and call forth into active expression what exist within us in a latent state. What we experience as an outer world is actually a projection as an extension or continuation of our inner world and is being naturally formed by us. It doesn’t exist apart from our ability to perceive it. All stimulation comes as an interaction between complementary opposites (of the same thing), where we first act through “resonance” to form the structure of our outer world, and it then acts on us to stimulate us through the relationship formed by latent, repressed, and unknown aspects of our own internal nature. What we imagine to be outside of us as traits we don’t already possess is because they are dormant within us, or we’ve repressed them through some form of judgment, and have become hidden and unknown to us as a result.

Recognizing and Integrating Your Shadow

The other part in the initial stages of self-realization and awareness of who you really are comes by learning to recognize fragmented aspects of yourself that you have disowned and denied having, even to yourself, due to how you were judged by others, and then began judging yourself in the same manner. The most primary part of our lower nature as our subconscious-instinctual self, is the desire to be accepted as a part of a group, with the most basic one being our family unit. When we’re judged as being bad, wrong, or deficient for natural character traits that we possess and openly express, it means we’re going to be rejected, ostracized, or alienated from our family or social group, and as a result, we refuse to “express” those parts of ourselves, and keep them buried deep inside instead. When we’re shamed and made to feel guilty about what exists as a natural part of us, we usually choose to deny and disown it, and we begin hiding it, often, even to ourselves.

As we form these fragmented hidden aspects of ourselves that we refuse to express, they stay “active” within us as a frequency and continue to create by remaining a natural part of our outer environment, which is being formed as a mirror image of our subconscious. Because we denied having them and buried them deep within our subconscious, we don’t recognize them as being ours, and in their active state they still motivate “unconscious behaviors” that we naturally display without a direct awareness of what we’re doing or why. Because we’re unaware of them while they’re still active at the unconscious level, they form the basis for our complexes as unconscious patterns we continue to play out with others, and form how we judge others through the reaction they naturally cause in us.

We all have a built-in mechanism for being able to recognize and accurately identify our own repressed character traits, so that we can begin working with them in a conscious manner. Once we realize that our entire outer environment, including our perception of others, is being projected (reshaped into a correlating construct) by our subconscious mind and includes the unknown aspects that lie hidden within us, we have the tools necessary to begin reevaluating them in a way that will allow us to integrate them in a healthy and productive manner. By realizing that these same traits and behaviors form a pronounced reaction in us and cause us to “judge others” in the same way we were judged and came to judge ourselves, we can bring them into the light of our conscious mind where we can examine them in a new and more productive way. We form a reaction outwardly to what exists inwardly that we’re unaware of. All accepted and known aspects of ourselves that also form a natural part of our outer perception don’t cause a reaction, seem completely normal and uneventful, or elicit a feeling of admiration and respect.

etheric reality

We’re also provided with an even deeper tool that allows us to become aware of why we repressed it, because our reaction is formed out of the same “judgment” that caused us to deny the same trait in ourselves. So, by examining the nature of our reaction and the story that naturally starts playing out in our mind as our internal dialogue with ourselves provides us with the whole equation we need in order to transform it in a way that we can incorporate it through a healthy and constructive expression that matches our image of ourselves and what “kind of person” we are. The reason we deny certain aspects of ourselves is because we don’t know how to express them in a way that fits or enhances the image we’ve built of ourselves, and we refuse to express them as a result.

We must start by realizing that every character trait, no exceptions, has an appropriate means of expression that’s constructive and beneficial in nature. When we assign ideas of “good and bad” or “right and wrong” to any aspect of ourselves, we judge ourselves as being wrong or bad for having those traits and decide instead to “deny” having them. As we form denial around certain parts of ourselves, we push them to the background where we lose awareness of them, yet they remain a fundamental part of our subconscious mind and continue to actively express as a natural part of our outer reality. Due to the fact that we’ve repressed and are no longer aware of them, we don’t recognize them as being ours when we see and react to them in others.  

 Our mind literally become fragmented, and we pose one part of ourselves against another part of ourselves. The disowned parts of us become what we call our “shadow” because they reside in darkness within us, and over time we lose our ability to “see them” in ourselves while continuing to judge others who openly express the same traits and activities. As we judge, we’re making something good or bad based on how we’re looking at it and the situation it’s actively expressing in. If we looked at that same idea from a different perspective and as expressing through a different situation, or in a different way, we might see it as good and perhaps beneficial or as providing us with the means for enhancing our ability to express ourselves in the right situation. If we judge something about ourselves as being bad or wrong it’s usually showing us that we’re simply not expressing it in an appropriate manner, and it’s destructive or harmful as a result, or it doesn’t suite the image we’ve built of ourselves as a specific type and kind of person.

Imagination

There’s no such thing as a trait that’s all bad. Every trait serves a purpose and when utilized appropriately, creates in a beneficial manner. Anger for example, when formed as a reaction based on our conditioning nearly always tends to be destructive and harmful to ourselves and others, yet it can be an appropriate response to violence and injustice. Violence is an appropriate response when we’re protecting our family and loved ones from a threat of violence, and when protecting those who can’t protect themselves, or when it’s being used against us. So every aspect of ourselves becomes a beneficial tool for forming an appropriate response to correlating situations and the right circumstances. If it’s destructive and unwarranted, it’s showing us that we’re not using it appropriately, or that we’ve attached the wrong idea to it that’s limiting our ability to express it in a creative and beneficial way.

We only “fear” what we don’t understand, and out of fear comes hatred. The most natural way to overcome hatred is by looking to understand what it is we hate. We can only “love” what we understand. By taking an attitude of understanding, it allows us to look at something from an entirely different perspective and gain new awareness of it that allows us to transform hate into love. This is what the saying “love thy enemy” is trying to point out to us. All traits express through interactions and how it is we use them in relation with each other as a means of transforming them. This formula for transforming traits is laid out for us through what’s called the 7 vices and virtues, which exist as complementary opposites of each other. Each vice has its complementary virtue. If we set them apart where they’re opposing each other, and draw a line to connect them, we form a “gradient scale” between extremes of the same thing. We transform a vice by employing the complementary virtue in its place. By doing this consistently over a period of time, we build up experiences born out of virtues as an accumulative process where we steadily move from one end of the scale to the other. The object isn’t to swing from one extreme to the other, but rather find the middle point where they exist in balance and are being used as tools for creating by expanding our ability to express ourselves.    

If we want to create peace in the world, we don’t do it by launching a campaign to protest war, we do it by cultivating peace in every area of our life and relationships. We become “peace” itself as a state of mind that produces a corresponding outer reality as an “experience of ourselves” as being peaceful. We embody peace as a quality of being and we exist in harmony with everyone and everything around us. If we live in fear, and are afraid of a lot of things, we act on ourselves to transform it by consciously choosing to employ “courage” instead and walk courageously into our fears. We can start with the smaller fears that are easier to manage, because what you’ll find with relatively little practice is that most of your fears aren’t real but are more a product of your imagination allowed to run wild. Fear is only designed to prevent us from taking action, and as soon as you take action to move forward in spite of fear, it immediately subsides and goes away. Once you begin realizing this and concentrate on creating experiences of being courageous and confident, you become empowered, and can easily transform the greatest of fears. This is because they all work by way of the same principles, which operate the same way in all areas of your life.

Returning to Wholeness

The main goal of our soul required for growing and evolving ourselves to higher levels of self-awareness and creativity, and ultimately ascension, is to learn how to integrate our shadow aspects so that we become fully self-aware and whole again, where we’re able to realize that we are the one creating our own reality. As we return to a state of wholeness by blending the inner with the outer as a harmonious continuation of each other, we become “coherent”. By becoming aware of the nature and relationship of our subconscious and self-conscious mind, we can learn how to operate each aspect using universal laws which provide us with explicit instructions on how to create from a fully conscious and self-aware state. As long as we remain unconscious and create our life from a semi-unconscious state where we fail to recognize the consequences we call upon ourselves through our own actions, we remain on the lower material plane as the victim of our own creation. We’re all here to wake up within our own life, realize our power to self-create, and learn how to operate our own mind as a means of creating in an intentional and responsible manner. Each one of us is the sole creator of our own life experiences, and out of those experiences we simultaneously create ourselves.
