sciences the number 11 represents the principle of universal justice as the
equilibrium of complementary opposites to establish balance and harmony. It’s
symbolic of what’s commonly called “karma” as the absolute law of cause and
consequence, also referred to traditionally as the “golden rule”. Its purpose
is to teach and instruct us through our own actions which produce both
immediate and long term consequences as our ability to create our reality. This
is a double “1” (Monad) as the balancing scales that brings an equal or greater
return on all our actions and deeds. It represents our ability to learn from
our own actions and the inward capacity for self-direction and regulation. In
the “Book of Formation”, the special action assigned to Justice is “work or
action” that’s designed to teach and instruct.
Justice is represented by Libra, ruled by Venus, which governs the inner world of the imagination (Key 3), where our subconscious deductions from experience become the seeds of karma, and forms the basis for all of our actions. As we create through our own actions and deeds, we simultaneously learn and provide ourselves with a form of instruction. Through purely unconscious processes we form constant interpretations of experiences that produce all of our natural perceptions and automatic behaviors. How we perceive ourselves and the outer world comes through our personal style for processing and organizing information, which forms the basis for all of our actions. Our mental model as our perceptual lens is formed initially as the result of our formative conditioning as mental states, dynamic patterns, and tendencies that have become habitual.
Mode of Consciousness
The mode of
consciousness associated with Justice (karma) is “faithful intelligence”. The
subconscious is a faithful servant to the conscious mind and produces the
realization of whatever idea it’s germinated with. The feminine aspect of the
mind is impregnated with the seed (idea) of the masculine aspect and produces
the reality of the idea as its offspring. This not only reveals to us that most
creations result from habitual unconscious patterns, but also that whatever it
is that we imagine as a reality with intensity, is actually a “request” for a
personal creation. We act on ourselves to program our own subconscious through
imagining ideas as an actual reality and experience, “instructing” it (our
self) to produce more experiences of the same nature and kind. As we replay
memories over and over in our mind, we’re instructing our subconscious to
produce more of the same types of reality, usually without realizing (being aware)
that that’s why we have the same type of experiences over and over again.
Vices or virtues are equally deposited in the faithful intelligence of the subconscious where they augment. As we interject an idea into our subconscious by vividly imagining it with sensory detail, it gestates until it becomes the foundation out which we perceive the same idea outwardly as its realization. The subconscious faithfully reproduces and multiplies whatever idea it’s given as an imagined reality that’s experienced in an emotionally intense way. It uses existing memory as a kind of metaphorical theme for creating more of the same type of realities. It takes a symbolic idea in its potential form and ripens it to become the motive for our actions. As we create ideas as an outer realization through a form of projection that produces a new variation through a process of adaptation, we then reabsorb them through the experience they provide and shape them into memories that act in turn to reprogram ourselves with more of the same type of experiences. All reality is subjective in nature and is formed as a self-perpetuating process of self-realization.
The Law of Cause and Effect
manifest by effects, and effects are proportioned to their causes. All action is
a cause that produces an equivalent effect. Nothing is affirmed or made real until
it appears outside of us as a realization. We apprehend the cause of our own
actions by the effects contained in the energy of the cause, by means of the
Universal Law of Correspondence and Analogy. Once an idea is established as an
outer effect that brings realization, the effect then becomes a cause that
produces an equivalent effect “in us” through the experience it provides. All
of our deepest motives are revealed through the reality they create as the
nature of our experiences. It’s not necessarily the idea itself that provides a
creative template for the subconscious, but rather what internal force is “motivating”
us in creating the idea. The conscious mind provides the material form as an
idea, and the subconscious infuses and grows it with an equivalent emotional
force, and together they form the “reason” for the creation.
The Law of the Monad (Mind and Soul) demonstrates the principle of how the inner center (nature) produces the outer sphere of reality to be of the same nature through an electromagnetic respiration as an outflow and inflow of consciousness that creates on multiple levels and scales simultaneously. Magnetic respiration is where the inner nature of motives that produce outer actions populates the atmosphere surrounding it, providing it with a reflection of itself through its own works. Through our own creative abilities, we create either heaven or hell for ourselves. There’s always an electromagnetic pulsation of the soul where it projects itself to formulate its outer reality, constructing it to be of the same nature (pattern) as it is. As it forms the realization of itself through its outer environment, it then draws the realization back into itself where it’s reformulated into a memory. Our core being is what forms our perception as interpretations that provide us with the means for experiencing our self. All of what we call curses or blessings are self-administered and produce their consequences invariably, and every action by its nature produces effects analogous to its motives, extent, and direction.
Thought, Word, and Deed
that aren’t translated into speech don’t produce realization, and speech that’s
not backed by action remains idle as imagined fantasy. Ideas are only made “real”
when they are acted on to produce outer experiences as the realization of the
idea. Many people form a false image of themselves that they never act on to
make real, and it results in a form of delusion as a false front disguised to
hide their true nature. Thought formulated into speech forms the basis for the action
necessary to produce it as an outer realization. The realization gained from an
action reveals what motivated it.
hide their true motives (often even to themselves) out of fear of what it means
about them, and try to cover them up with false proclamations that act to contradict
their actions. What we say doesn’t reveal anything about us; it’s what we do
that demonstrates our true character. What we act to create in life only comes
through our actions, not idle thoughts as fantasies that only serve to delude
us. Whether vice or virtue, destructive or constructive, we are fully responsible
for anything we say or do, and the realities that result from them. There is no
such thing as indifferent acts.
Justice signifies active administration of law as balance, poise, expectation, precision, impartiality, and equity. It’s not based on value judgments of right and wrong, or good and bad, but merely serves to reveal the inner constitution as what motivates actions. Every action has a motive as a subconscious formulated interpretation. As we think, speak, and act, we create the reality of our motives, which serves as a mirror into unconscious aspects of ourselves. Our subconscious is programmed initially through our formative conditioning, which forms the basis for all of our motives, interpretations, and natural behaviors. As we perceive something through our mental model we reformulate it by saying “this means that”, referencing and associating it to a memory of a previous experience of a similar nature, and we act accordingly. Through our conditioning we act on ourselves to repeat the same patterns as a habitual way of perceiving and create the same type of experiences over and over again.
Our Life Story as a Theme for
memories serve to form our natural way of perceiving the world and sets the
stage for the story we begin telling ourselves as a means of using the past to
interpret the present to mean the same thing. The meaning we give something
determines how we experience it through the story we tell ourselves about it. Our
story about something is how we explain, describe, and justify it as a means of
attempting to understand it. As we create the outer realization of our thoughts
and motives as an experience of our own making, we then become subject to them.
We use our own self-produced experiences to shape ourselves by how we identify
with our own creation as an ongoing story we’re always in the process of
telling ourselves about things. In this manner, we’re always shaping everything
else to be like us.
By realizing that our outer realizations are providing us with a mirror into our own unconscious mind, we can become more self-aware. Anytime we bring something that’s operating at the unconscious level in our life into conscious awareness, we provide ourselves with the opportunity to transform it in whatever way we desire. By staying unaware and repeating the thematic patterns of our conditioning, we live our life out of karma and remain unconscious of our true nature and our ability to self-create by way of our own realizations. We fail to realize that we’re not our personality or conditioning, but the “means” through which it becomes our reality. Our soul is the author and producer of our life story as the means of simultaneously creating and experiencing itself by way of its own creation. We are the soul that’s producing reality through our perception of it, not the result of an objective reality that’s somehow being done to us by an outside force or contrary power.
By becoming self-aware and using our outer realizations as a mirror into the hidden aspects of our mind, we can step into our true power to self-create by learning how to seed our subconscious with ideas we want to create as our outer experience of reality. We can realize our own undesirable traits and delusional interpretations and begin acting on ourselves to transform them into more beneficial and meaningful ones. Once we realize that things only mean what we make them mean by how we interpret them, we can detach from our inner narrative as our story about things, and begin forming new ones. Once we become aware of habitual dynamics that we’re drawn into unconsciously as a reaction of some kind, we can begin neutralizing them by re-framing them and making a conscious decision as to what we want to create in their place.
As we become
aware of the patterns produced unconsciously through our conditioning, just the
awareness alone dissolves them, and we’re left with a new awareness of our
ability to make a decision as to how we’re going to create instead. As we begin
making new decisions and actively directing our subconscious on what we want it
to create, we begin taking full responsibility for our self and our life. Our
inner core as our nature and character is what acts to produce our outer
perception of reality and our “self” through that reality.
ourselves as our inner character, we change the reality it naturally produces as
a fundamental form of self-expression. We don’t change our life by working on
others and the outer effects themselves, but by working on ourselves as the
inner cause that’s producing the outer effect as a basic form of self-perception.
As we begin working on ourselves to reshape our character and redirect underlying
motives, our outer reality and perception of others changes as a direct correspondence.
Justice as the harmonious balance of the inner with the outer is a
self-administered form of creation. In every moment we are the sole creators of
both our self and our perception of others, and our inner and outer reality,
which exist in polarity as complementary to each other. The outer is an
extension and continuation of the inner and contains both conscious and
unconscious aspects of our self. We can come to know the unknown aspects of
ourselves by how they exist in relation to the known aspects, both of which
form the basis of our outer perception of reality.
I won’t even attempt to approach this
idea from the typical angle of scientific studies and conditioned mindsets born
out of supposed conventional education regarding nutritional value of foods, but
rather from the perspective of understanding energy and the natural laws that
govern it. Most studies presented to the public nowadays come as more of an
educated opinion created by the food and pharmaceutical companies, or that have
read and are regurgitating whatever ideas are currently considered popular and
widely accepted within various communities. When we don’t really know how to
tell truth from fiction, even the decisions made with the best of intentions
can bear unremarkable, unexpected, or even disastrous results.
All of what we can call “true wisdom”
doesn’t come from opinions and individual perspectives of some kind that’s
designed to sway you in one direction or another, but rather from a basic
understanding of universal laws, which apply to every single aspect of the
phenomenal world, and are always true in terms of understanding the fundamental
nature of things and how they operate. Universal laws demonstrate the
relationship that naturally exists between consciousness, energy, and matter. All
reality is formed by multiple planes that all work together to form what we
perceive as a single plane that are correlated with each other through a dynamic
and interactive series of correspondences. All spiritual wisdom, without
exception, is the practical understanding of how laws operate within all planes
of existence to produce a material form of a certain nature and kind. We now
know for a fact (scientifically) that all material objects are coupled with an
energetic field that acts as its “double or mirror image” (polar opposite) in
terms of how properties are organized into a coherent pattern and what
appearance and activities it takes on naturally as a result.
The only real way to look at the true nature of any kind of “food”, is through an understanding of how these law operate to produce its energetic and chemical constitution. The energy in our food is what works to likewise produce our energetic and chemical constitution in consuming, breaking down, assimilating, and utilizing it where it becomes an essential part of us. All matter as we know it is produced or “grown” from mysterious invisible forces that act to organize various combinations of elements to produce cells which then begin systematically replicating and differentiating to produce a whole plant or being. All genetic information used to construct something comes as pairs of opposites that are combined to form sequences through a process of “natural selection”. What’s selected and what’s not is determined by the Life-force energy that acts to form it into a specific type of structure that vibrates at a certain rate, making the form ideal for absorbing (resonating with) and utilizing specific types of complementary energies available in its immediate environment.
The Life-force energy is what acts to
animate a seed of a specific species causing it to begin growing while organizing
its physical structure and thereby determining what type and kind it becomes. A
seed is produced as a combination of information (genetics) obtained from the
parents (male and female) who share complementary information as the means of producing
the genetic information inherent in the seed as its potential for growth and
development. Most of the energy that governs the material plane is electromagnetic
in nature as both active and passive qualities that together form a functional
third as their offspring.
The essence of a seed can be thought of as the “soul” of the plant. The soul is the etheric double as an energetic blueprint used to organize the information contained within the DNA into a specialized pattern of a specific nature. This sequenced genetic information determines how it forms and what it acts to naturally “absorb” from the atmosphere, soil, water, and various forms of consciousness that exists in near proximity to it. These elements naturally make up what’s referred to in Spiritual Sciences as the “4 Elements of the material world”, out of which all beings of the Earth are formed into specialized patterns by the Life-Force energy that activates, holds it together, and animates it.
essence is the energies that give life to an entity and forms its nature as a
vibratory frequency. The material form of a thing has no life unless it’s
“ensouled” by a living force that serves to grow and determine it. As
information comes to life and begins absorbing and organizing Elements into a
living being, it forms a structure out of coalesced light that acts as a form
of empty shell or neutral body for the Life-Force to concentrate and express
certain qualities. This shell that’s constructed out of primal intelligence (instinct)
and Life-force energy acts as a kind of neutral housing for accumulating
energies and determines what elements it acts to naturally resonate with, and thereby
absorb and assimilate that are inherent in the space (astral field) around it.
Everything in the material and energetic sense of formation are based on
vibration, resonance, sympathetic induction, and coherence as a harmonic unification
based on a constant process of regeneration that utilizes new variations of the
same type of energies in order to continue constructing itself.
Whatever we use to get energy from, we use to form our energetic constitution to be of the same nature, evolving it to different states of the same basic type and kind. The same kind of plant, for example, grown in different soil and climate, will have different chemical properties based on the combinations formed from what nutriments it naturally acts to absorb from the soil, air, and water it’s growing in. A certain type of plant will absorb certain chemical nutriments, while a different plant will absorb a different array of properties. This forms the basis for agricultural practice of compatible planting and crop rotation, as well as allowing periods of rest in order for the soil to rejuvenate after being depleted of certain nutriments. All forms of nourishment as the plants essence and active properties are ultimately obtained from the natural elements available to it that it uses to construct itself, and the energy it obtains from the stars (sun) that causes minerals and metals to grow that act to refortify the Earth.
All material forms can therefore be seen
and understood as simply being containers for the vital energies they house.
The outside appearance and constitution of a material object or being simply
allows us to identify what type of energy it contains. A plant is “killed” and
considered dead when its physical constitution has been altered to the point
where it’s no longer an appropriate container for the Life-force energy to
inhabit and express through. Plants aren’t killed by picking their fruits or
even pulling them out of the ground by their roots, and will continue to mature
and ripen through live enzymes and active properties. While we have a tendency
to think that death is something that happens instantaneously, in fact, it’s
actually a gradual process that usually happens over a period of a couple of
days. The etheric body or energetic double of a living being lingers for a
period time intact before it begins disintegrating and returning back into the
original elements that formed it.
When a plant is cooked at high temperatures, or refined by changing its energetic and chemical composition, it releases its life-giving energies, and they’re no longer available by eating or drinking them. What this means is that their nutritional value is significantly reduced or eliminated altogether, making it a “dead food source”. In other words there’s no energy to be obtained from it. This is why most processed foods are “fortified” by adding certain vitamins and minerals, which are of course synthetic in nature, meaning they’re also highly processed and contain no “actual” nutritional value that can be assimilated and utilized by your body. Our body needs the full array of the chemical properties naturally present in food in order to be able to utilize it as fuel.
Whole Foods – the Complementary
Nature of Passive and Active Properties
Another huge form of ignorance that’s prevalent in our modern concept of nutrition and health is that we typically think that only what we call the “active properties” or ingredients are important or meaningful. Yet the entire material world and all forms of growth, regeneration, and the means for forming our material substance is based on both active and passive (masculine and feminine) properties that are complementary to each other and work in relationship with each other to form both our inner essence and physical health, both of which are analogous to each other. The passive components are necessary in order to break down and fully utilize the active ones. It’s the passive components of the food we eat that stimulate the active ones in our body, which then produces its own nutrition. We don’t necessarily need to get nutrition in its full form from our food, but rather the proper ingredients that our body needs to produce its own. For example, we don’t need to eat protein in its whole, already made form; we simply need to get the necessary amino acids for our body to make proteins. Science is only now beginning to understand the importance of what they call micro-nutrients, enzymes, pigments, and so on, in helping to properly assimilate and utilize the full nutrition available in a plant.
Once we become aware of the importance of eating whole, natural and organically grown foods as the means of not only acquiring their energetic essence, but also in being able to fully utilize it once acquired, we can begin using this knowledge to not only intelligently select what we eat, but also in how we go about preparing it. All of what we call “processing” comes by how it’s prepared. Much of the problem we’re now facing is not just in the constitution of the food itself, but also how it’s prepared, or what happens when we “process and refine” food, often completely changing its chemical composition and releasing all of its Life-force energy, killing it.
The Benefits of Eating Live Food
Whenever we’re talking about the energy in food, we have to look at the entire process undertaken to raise it, and the environment and method in which it was grown. We acquire our energy as nutriments from whatever food we eat and drink. As we consume it, we break-down the physical structure of the shell itself, releasing the Life-force energy contained within it, which we then use to fuel our own biological activities and regenerate our molecular structure to be of the same type of energy, and as a result produce the same type of energetic condition as our mental, emotional, and physical health. Like always begets more of what’s like itself. In processed foods its structure has already been altered and the life-giving energy released from it. It becomes what we can think of as “dead food”, which means it has no energetic value and contains only remnants of the physical properties still inherent in its substance.
Along with the various methods used to
prepare processed foods, we also have to look at how we’re being taught to
prepare foods through various cooking methods. I’m not going to enter the
debate on how it affects what we call the “actual nutritional value”, because
of course none of us really know for sure, but only consider the energetic
aspect as the “Life-force contained within the food” which is what actually
determines its nutritional value in terms of assimilation and the fuel it
provides by releasing the energy contained within it. Energy is what acts to
produce the electrical impulses that activate natural biological processes
within the body and is what determines how it’s overall condition and how it
functions as a correlation.
This idea is very easy to understand for anyone who has taken basic chemistry or biology in school and for those who are educated in occult sciences and realize that all transformation is achieved through the element of “fire” (heat). As we heat up any physical substance, we begin systematically altering its chemical make-up. The greater and more direct the heat, the more pronounced its transmutation. Once the physical structure that houses the energy of a substance is altered to a certain degree, it’s no longer appropriate for housing the energy that grew, organized, and formed it. As the structure of an object is altered, the Life-force energy is discharged and released, and the food itself becomes lifeless. This means it no longer possesses any life-giving energy, and only contains dead remnants (etheric substance) of the energy it was once infused with.
Anytime we kill food as the means of
eating it, it acts likewise to kill us by failing to re-energize us with
electromagnetic properties and introduces instead a form of toxic substance. Processed
foods and those prepared by way of certain methods are the leading cause of
illness, disease, and cancers within our modern day society. This is
self-evident by the fact that when life leaves a substance, there’s no longer
any activity and the Life-force that was organizing and “holding it together”
ceases (leaves it), causing it to begin disintegrating and putrefying. It
begins rotting and decaying and will make you sick if you eat it. This is why
processed foods are sterilized through cooking methods and ad so many chemical preservatives
and flavor enhancers just to keep it looking and tasting like real food.
Food that’s cooked at high temperatures discharges all of the energy the food contains and the chemical components that make up its constitution are likewise altered. Foods that are “steamed” and softened through indirect heat at a lower temperature, may not actually kill the food, but still alters its outer structure and inner chemical composition, which is why as it softens it also tastes different. Cooking at just about any temperature kills live enzymes and other chemical properties necessary to efficiently break-down, utilize and assimilate the nutriments still contained in the food. Different properties are altered at different rates based on the type, degree, and direct contact of the heat. Food that boiled at high temperature for a long period of time, discharge the Life-force energies and contain no live enzymes and very few actual nutrients. Animal foods that contain high amounts of fat are rendered toxic through searing, charbroiling, and frying.
Microwave ovens are not only hazardous to use in terms of the propagation of the waves themselves and the outer exposure, but also in terms of “how they cook food”. Unlike convention stove top methods of cooking, a microwave heats food from the “inside out” rather than from the outside in. As the microwave heats the food internally it “shatters” (explodes) the cells of the food, releasing all life-giving energy while simultaneously infusing it with radiation. We end up with dead food of very little nutritional value that’s a radioactive substance that we then consume and use to energetically fortify our energetic body and molecular structure.
This problem is further compounded by the fact that most “microwaveable foods” are highly processed and loaded with unnatural chemicals, and usually cooked in plastic containers. In this case we’re starting with food that’s already void of life-energies and of very little nutritional value, loaded with synthetic chemicals, which are also saturated with chemical contaminants of the plastic containers, and turned into a radioactive dead substance. Plastics, which are synthetic themselves, are loaded with toxic chemicals, some of which imitate hormones and are endocrine blockers that also “leak” their chemical toxins into the food through temperature inversions, especially heat. But like most things, we continue to eat them due to ignorance about what’s happening, because it tastes good (flavor enhancers), and of course they’re cheap, easy, and convenient.
Animal Products – Recycled Energy
Animals that we eat as food are usually mammals, avian, and fish of some kind, which are of a similar nature to us biologically, and metabolize food in much the same way we do. They also have endocrine systems that regulate all physical processes and mental states through chemical messengers known as hormones. Hormones are produced a number of ways, but most notably through events and the experiences they bring that alter their state in order for them to react in the most appropriate and beneficial way possible in order to “preserve their life”. All animals share the subconscious aspect of the mind with us, whose main motive is “self-preservation”, and are emotionally driven to produce instinctual (automatic) behaviors as a means of survival.
Hormones are produced from electrical impulses received and interpreted by the subtle energy centers of the body (chakras) that in turn act to regulate the endocrine system as the means of instantly altering their “state” to produce a natural way of behaving and functioning. Whatever energies are active and expressing in the atmosphere around them are absorbed, decoded, and converted into proper electrical signals that run through their nervous system and serve to operate all major systems of the body in a coordinated fashion. Energetic essences are constantly being produced and transmitted through the air where they become an unconscious stimulus that’s designed to produce an appropriate action of some sort that doesn’t require realization of any kind, the need to think about it, or make any actual decisions as to what to do. All chemical messengers as hormones are circulated throughout the body through the blood stream. The blood of any being (which is comparable chlorophyll in plants) contains its “essence” as all the accumulated energies it acts to naturally absorb from its environment and successfully integrate, and is the “energetic summation” of all of its life experiences.
Animals are “sentient beings” that possess a certain level and type of consciousness, and are self-preserving in terms of “clinging to life”. This Is self-evident by the fact that when an animal is being killed, or feels its life is threatened in some way, it “freaks out” and does everything in its power to get away and escape it, or fight for its life just like we do. As they begin panicking, their whole system is saturated with hormones that instinctively produce the “fight or flight response”. Their blood chemistry and muscles are “infused” with the energies that produce a feeling of stress and fear in us. As fear sets in all blood flow is slowed down to the brain and major organs and is redirected to the muscles in order to run or fight, and so the “meat” of the animal, which is primarily the muscle, is infused with these type of hormones and act to produce that same mental and emotional state in us by eating it. As we consume the flesh of animals, we’re consuming their blood and all the chemistry of their experiences, which produce the same kind of “mental state and natural behaviors” in us. Our modern western society is currently being grossly overtaken with chronic forms of stress, fear, and anxiety from a seemingly “unknown” source.
In a similar fashion, animals that are deprived of “quality of life” and confined to an environment that causes them to feel pain, suffer emotionally, and live in a chronic state of poor health, produce a “product of the same nature”. Our food supply has moved to an “industrialized” organization that’s brutal in the most basic sense of the idea and raises animals in a form of assembly-line process of mass production that turns out a product of extremely low quality. Animals are not only mass produced in small facilities where they live in crowded and often filthy conditions, but are then pumped full of growth hormones to mature and fatten them up in a fraction of the time it normally takes, then pumped full of antibiotics to keep infection and disease at a minimum long enough to slaughter them. The method used for killing them is usually inhumane and causes them to experience terror. Their entire life, which is often only a few months, is spent in an environment that causes depression, fear, stress, and anxiety while in a bacteria infested pin, yard, or warehouse where they’re often further abused by the people caring for them. Some never even experience the feeling of sunlight on their body or roaming freely in a grassy countryside. All because we take an attitude that their only purpose in life is to be food for us.
Our modern day society is currently plagued with not only physical ailments and cancers, but also mental and emotional “conditions” whose causes have yet to be accurately identified. Depression, which is usually formed from a constant form of anxiety without an obvious reason, is currently an epidemic in the western world where meat is being produced in an industrialized fashion and has become our main staple diet. Many people have been trained to eat meat at every meal. All energy, which is a form of consciousness, comes through a basic process of photosynthesis in plants as a direct form of a neutral-like essence, that’s then eaten and metabolized by animals and people. Plants don’t have the same animal-mammalian body as we do, and don’t produce hormones as emotional states that “give us” the same “type of experiences”.
Plants grow out of the mineral kingdom, and animals eat plants, converting the raw energy contained within them into blood chemistry as a form of interpretation, that people (who are animals also) then eat, acquiring energy of the sun that has been transmuted to include mental and emotional states that affect them in the same manner. As a basic rule, whatever we consume, absorb, and take in, whether energy, air, water, or food, and we integrate in order to energize and build our substance out of, we become like in nature. By eating only live plant food that doesn’t contain blood, we acquire a direct source of energy that optimizes the fuel of our whole system, energizing us without altering our mood and setting the premise for how we behave.
The most fundamental law that governs all of life is the Law of Vibration. Every single thing and being vibrates at a certain rate and mode that has a specialized pattern as a structuring mechanism for organizing all the elements available to it into a similar life form. Whatever we consume and become one with in essence, we become like in nature, and act to not only produce the same type of mental state with as a certain type of perception and experience, but also take on the same type of emotions and behaviors. All behaviors are emotionally driven at an unconscious level. How we feel determines how we think and act. Because all of this happens at the energetic, unconscious level, we often don’t intuitively make the connection and realize what’s actually happening. The process of cause and effect that we’re constantly engaged in can completely elude us in the most ordinary sense, because the effect takes time to accumulate to the point where it manifests as an actual condition of some kind. All things are built up through an accumulative process of energetic acquisition that eventually alters our physical health.
The Process of Regeneration
Our body regenerates itself structurally
within different times frames, and we have a completely new body, bones (most
dense) and all, every seven years. Because of this it can take several years of
accumulating the same energies for illness, disease, and cancers to develop. Many
people who don’t necessarily manifest specific physical diseases due to their
diet, still suffer from poor mental and emotional health through various forms
of depressions, stress, chronic anxiety, feelings of hopelessness, lack of
motivation to change their life and habits, and by maintaining negative and
destructive emotional states and attitudes.
Energy is primal in nature, which means it initiates the process that forms a series of correspondences as a chain-of-association that produces an equal or greater effect mentally, emotionally, and physically. This chain reaction is an energetic flow that moves both ways as a form of infinity that both descends and ascends simultaneously. Just as our mental state produces emotions of the same nature, which motivate all of our behaviors and activities, what we take in and become one with in our environment, likewise affects our emotional state which then drives and determines our thoughts. Whatever we think about and how we feel as a result, are directly correlated to each other.
As creative beings we’re bestowed with
self-awareness and the ability to realize truth through intuitive realizations
of various sorts. These realizations provide us with the means for making calculated
decisions that act to direct all of our activities. We’re always the one
producing our health by what we choose to eat, drink, and associate with. We
can’t use the excuse that we didn’t know any better and are therefore not
responsible for what we create, or claim to not “deserve” what happens to us
that were actually self-induced and willfully undertaken.
Our ability to make informed and intelligent decisions isn’t based on who else’s opinion we accept as fact and therefore adopt as our own, but rather through our ability to understand the Natural Laws at work in any situation that provides us with the truth that’s not always outwardly apparent and equips us with the proper means for creating ourselves with a sense of awareness and intention. In fact (not theory), there’s no such things as universal injustice or being a victim to others, because everything we do to ourselves comes as a demonstration of our true knowledge and awareness, and comes through the volition of our own decisions and the actions that result from them. We are all bestowed with the higher creative capacity of choice and will and it’s up to us to care enough to seek out the knowledge it takes to make what we deem “good decisions”. It doesn’t matter so much if we’re right or wrong in our decisions, but rather that they’re truly “our decisions” and not made for us by another. The only point in life is to learn how to create ourselves through our higher capacities of realization, choice, and free will to be an individual of our own making.
There has been so much confusion with the explosion of quantum physics and Mind Sciences as to the true nature of what we call “reality”. One of the most fundamental problems we have is people tend to think of the material world of matter and form as a fixed, objective, and stationary construct where every person (mind) is somehow perceiving and experiencing the “same thing”. Because of this, we don’t realize the true power of our mind to shape reality, or the true nature of the relationship between the mind and matter. Naturally, the entire material world is only “perceivable” through or because of the mind, and the mind as a field of information is what “operates” both the brain and the body, which is a mechanism for processing sensory information to produce what we experience as coherent and consistent version of reality.
When we say that the “mind creates its own reality”, we’re usually not referring to the idea that it literally manifests the physical world that appears to be outside of us as well as in us, although there’s certainly an argument for this idea also, but what it means in the general sense is that the mind “interacts” with matter energetically, and through resonance and sympathetic induction, alters it’s outward appearance and how it “organizes” in terms of attributes, qualities, and characteristics, producing a variation that still indigenous to the same overall theme as a new version or possibility. All vibration acts to form a pattern as the electromagnetic field that organizes matter into a distinct form that’s then animated with a form of personality where it outwardly displays distinct qualities and characteristics. The pattern inherent in a frequency is more of a “theme” or general “range of expression” rather than a distinct and fixed shape that exists more as a specific vibration within that frequency.
As we vibrate to a certain frequency, we act to connect with that same frequency in everything else through “sympathetic induction”. This is where the subtle energy that’s vibrating and shaping one form, literally “enters into” another form vibrating at the same frequency or within near proximity (where it can still be drawn in), and “affects it” by “altering its state”. The two aspects of the same frequency then begin vibrating in harmony, forming into the same “type of pattern” as a cohesive and coherent idea. All of what we call a frequency, which is a range of vibration as a kind of scale that moves between extremes of the same overall idea or theme, exists within other frequencies that together make up what we think of as the natural world as an ecosystem. All of what we call “material form” is actually composed of mostly empty space as “natural forces” that charge particles and organize them into patterns as a “living system”. Energy from all around readily move into and through the empty space holding matter together, influencing it in a way that alters how it organizes the system in terms of what’s made active and inactive, and how it changes in its “appearance” while still maintaining the same overall thematic or archetypal shape. So we don’t necessarily change the outer shape of things, but rather which attributes and qualities are active, called forth expressing, and which ones become latent and recede, and how it behaves and expresses in relationship to us as a result.
In the Biblical story of the creation of the natural world, called the “original creation”, the material world was formed from the “spoken word”, but left unfinished. Humans, who are gifted with higher capacities of the mind for creating, were left with the task of “finishing it” by creating it in a unique and individual fashion. While the material world and the lower mind of our animal body appears to exist in what we could call an objective, stationary and neutral state, where everybody is seeing the same “basic thing”, it actually exists as a wave or “field of information” that has an infinite amount of potential that’s all thematic in nature as archetypes of various sorts, where every single mind that enters into relationship with it, filters out certain aspects, while selecting and enhancing others, forming it into a new and unique variation. While a tree exists as the same type of tree to everyone who views it, how they “experience” that tree, will be different every time. No two people experience the same thing in the same way. It’s always different based on how their mind forms it by resonating with it.
All energy as vibration contains an archetypal pattern as a field of information that forms an archetypal theme that has an infinite amount of possibilities for creating based on how the information is sorted, recomposed into new formula’s that produce new variations of the same thing. All material form exists as both a particle and a wave. Every object is accompanied by a subtle field of energy as the consciousness that organizes it through a “self-organizing mechanism” that “in-forms” it, holds it together as an operating system, and animates it with life. It’s the “empty space” that organizes the particles into a working system of some sort. These natural forces as electromagnetic fields have no real physical properties, and so the “mind” as individual consciousness moves freely into the mind and subtle energy of everything else, influencing it to a new vibration that alters how it appears to that mind. We are always creating (or recreating) everything to be in our image and of our likeness.
So we’re not necessarily literally creating our own reality, but rather transforming the existing reality that we all share as a part of this dimension, into a new and unique variation through our very perception of it. Our mind vibrates to a certain frequency that has a thematic pattern inherent in it that forms the energetic structure of our mind as a mental paradigm. This paradigm acts as a holographic model that resonates with everything around it, shape-shifting it to be of a congruent nature as a way of creating a consistent experience of reality in an ongoing fashion. We can only perceive, conceive of, or comprehend in our outer world what matches our inner world as the thematic structure of our mind. If it doesn’t match it or it exists outside of our paradigm (frequency), then we literally “can’t see it”. We can look straight at it and not comprehend it. We can only comprehend and therefore experience what we can blend with energetically, become one with in kind, and influence to be of the same idea as we are. All reality in this sense is a matter of perception.
As we “perceive something”, meaning we form an experience of it, comes by way of our ability to influence it into a new variation of itself that’s a correspondence to our model of the world. So as we’re perceiving and thereby experiencing the outer world, we’re constantly in the process of reforming it to be like us, of the same thematic structure as we are. Perception operates according to the same principles that govern DNA and all physical manifestation. You have a field of information as the potential for producing a form, and based on what’s “turn on” and made active, and what’s “turned off” and made latent, determines the nature of the form. As we resonate with something, our field of information as our mind vibrating at a specific frequency with a thematic pattern, enters into the energy field of the form we’re interacting with, forming an “interference pattern” out of “shared components and qualities”, where what’s of a like nature is amplified and embellished, and what’s not is canceled out and diminished, and we “alter the pattern” that’s producing the form changing how it appears outwardly. It literally changes appearance or shape-shifts by conforming to our mental paradigm and ideas about it. While the overall thematic form remains the same, the active components as attributes and qualities are reformulated to where what’s actively expressing changes not only how it looks, but also how it behaves. As we reformulate the basic nature of something through our energetic interaction, we change how it’s being and what it’s doing. This is very easy to see and understand by how we can “change” how people see themselves and behave through how we treat them and how they treat us.
All perception is formed through what we call a “filtering system”, usually comprised of values, beliefs, preferences, tendencies, memories, temperament, and so on, that together form a dynamic model that acts to reorganize any situation or reality by abstracting some parts while eliminating others. We’re not only always working on a limited amount of information gathered through a form of natural selection, but we then organize that small amount of information into the idea that we want it to be, believe it is, or expect it to be. What we believe to be true forms our experiences. What we value in a situation forms our process of selection. We reshape anything in whatever way we need to in order to form the interpretation we want it to have. How we interpret things to give them meaning, shapes how we experience them by the story we form in our mind about them. As we walk into any situation, we are programmed with a natural selection process for what we notice and abstract and we don’t and ignore.
This is very easy to see and understand when we simply realize that five people who are a part of the same event or reality will “experience” that event in a unique and different way from all the others, often telling such diverse stories about it that you can’t even tell it was the same event. Ask them about it and you’ll get five completely different accounts about what happened, what it meant, what resulted from it, what went on, what others were doing, what was important about it, what they took away from it, and so on. So even though we all share a common reality, how we experience that reality is very unique and diverse for each one of us. No two people experience the same thing in the same way. No two people look at the same idea the same way, we all have a unique take on it based on how we’re filtering it through our mental paradigm as our vibratory frequency to reorganize the general information involved and available to everyone into a unique pattern.
Quantum physics has demonstrated that matter is influenced by the mind of the person interacting with it. That whatever the intention is for an experiment, whatever it’s meant to prove or disapprove, influences and determines how matter “shows up and behaves”. The consciousness of the individual enters into matter, influencing it with its thoughts about it, and stimulates it into new forms with new properties and behaviors. The individual viewing an event, and the event itself as it appears to the viewer, are a part of the “same thing”. The mind literally produces the results it wants to or has an intention and expectation for. This is why several different quantum physicists (or scientists of any kind) all conducting similar experiments will come to different conclusions. Where the only way to really know if something is real or not, is if two or more people “appear to be seeing” the same thing. And even when they do appear to be seeing the same thing, it’ll vary to some degree based on the paradigm of each individual which is what’s forming their perception, interpretation and experience of it.
Understanding the true relationship between mind and matter allows us to understand the true nature of Alchemy where we realize that the only way to change how the outer world appears to us, is by changing ourselves. If it still appears the same, it’s because nothing has actually changed in terms of our paradigm or mental and emotional state. Likewise, we can’t really change others in the direct sense of the idea, but by changing ourselves, we change how they appear to us and how they affect us. It’s only by changing our thoughts that we change our reality as a correspondence. The way to tell when you’re truly growing, developing new aspects of yourself, and transforming by altering your vibration, is due to the fact that you start looking at things differently, seeing something different in the same thing, and the way the outer world and others appear to you starts changing accordingly. As long as we hold the same frequency based on the same beliefs, values, preferences, memories, and thematic life story, the outer world appears stagnate and methodical. Nothing changes. By changing our mind, we change ourselves and how we perceive (create) others and our life. So in this way, we are definitely the one producing our perception and experience of reality. All of life as we are capable of knowing it is a personal creation of a common theme.
Dr. Linda Gadbois Integrative Mind-Body Health Consultant and Spiritual Mentor
The spiritual perspective of personal growth and development is based out of morality, rather than physical accomplishments and worldly achievements. Naturally, many who live out of a separatist mentality want to separate intellectual (mind) and feeling (heart), posing them against each other as one being more desirable or worthy than the other, yet as we move away from purely material ideas and towards spiritual ones, we move back into the mindset of unity. What we refer to as morality exists on a higher plane of consciousness that includes the entire lower plane of the body and brain states, and acts as the power capable of controlling the lower planes, and in doing so, is able to utilize them as a means of expressing in the world in an intentional and meaningful way without being coerced or corrupted by it.
Many have been taught that morality is based on idea of what’s right and wrong, good and bad, and “rules” that we use to guide and direct our conduct, which holds a form of partial truth in the sense that it pertains to and works within the lower planes only, where rules are laid down as a form of obeying, in place of laws which require understanding and practical application. In order to use Universal Laws as a means of directing our own conduct requires more of an in-depth knowledge and ability through reasoning, choice, and will to employ that knowledge in a deliberate manner to direct our own behavior and create in a higher and purer way by working according to those laws. In the true and ultimate sense our “moral development” is our ability to rise above and separate ourselves from all the passions, emotions, and desires that govern the material plane, where they no longer control us and “utilize us” as the means to express in the world through the illusions they create.
To achieve a high, well-developed level of morality, is to detach and dissociate from the material world in terms of “identifying” with it and getting our “sense of self” from it. It’s mastering the ability to prevent the emotions being projected by others and being transmitted through the atmosphere from “entering into” and affecting you. It’s to gain an awareness and realization around your own emotional states, the ones you’ve taken on and used to shape your identity through expressing the reality they imply, and prevent them from rising in you and saturating your mind, and as a result, controlling your thoughts and perceptions. It’s about acquiring the presence of mind where you’re not influenced or controlled as the “means to an end” by any of the magnetic forces as passions that operate freely and abundantly within the material (astral) plane.
Possessing high morality is to be “in the world, but not of it”. It’s to gain a full awareness of how the astral forces of the magnetic plane operate “in and around you”, while maintaining a steadfast awareness that’s not moved or influenced by them. It’s the ability to exercise full use over your will at all times, and never allow someone or something else to take control of it. It’s the ability to stand in the presence of intense emotions that magnetically appeal to your passions in some way (pleasure, power, greed, wanting, needing, etc.), to witness or be in the presence of activities that normally engage you unconsciously, and not only be able to resist them (temptation), but not even allowing them to produce an effect in you. Resisting isn’t hard when you no longer feel passionate about something. When you no longer feel a desire for something, or somehow need the experience it offers to fulfill some longing or void inside of you in order to be alright, you step into a higher form of consciousness that’s able instead to “use” the magnetic fluids and Elements of the material plane (emotions and passions) in a willful manner to create in an intentional and deliberate way.
The way to “ascend” the laws governing one plane is to rise to the plane directly above it and operate by way of its laws, which exist in polarity to the lower plane and act to determine and govern it. What this means is that we can’t work within the “divine planes” through the same laws that govern the lower plane that’s created and controlled by entirely different forces. The material plane is the plane of the subconscious mind, governed by and through which “instinct” operates through passions, emotions, and unconscious impulses of some sort that produce automatic behaviors that don’t require thought, decisions, or will to act out. When the human soul, which is divine in nature, comes into the lower planes of mineral, plant, and animal consciousness, possessing higher capacities of the mind as the ability to think in an individual manner, evaluate situations in order to make calculated decisions, and the will to intentionally and deliberately act out those decisions, and it becomes subject to the magnetic forces of the astral plane (Earth’s atmosphere) through its coupling and bonding with an animal-body, which renders it largely unconscious and driven by compulsions of one form or another, self-awareness and choices become primary keys to freeing itself from the lower rungs, and acting as a powerful creator by utilizing its will to command and direct the magnetic forces of the material plane instead.
As a general rule, we can’t control whatever is acting to control us. If we can’t resist the desire, the craving and addiction, the insatiable need for something we don’t have, then we are controlled by and become subject to it. So it’s not about whether or not to engage in activities based on man-made rules about them that have been laid for us to follow in order to be considered “good and righteous” people. It’s about stepping outside of the concept of both good and bad, right and wrong, should and shouldn’t, and not be compelled by the passions and emotional states of either one, and in doing so, lose all passion (to or away from) for the ideas that govern our material body as a member of the animal kingdom born out of a form of training as blind acceptance of other people’s ideas for you. It’s not being swayed one way or the other by concepts of complementary opposites necessary to define yourself where you begin defining yourself instead as being separate, apart from, and unaffected by them. Through this form of self-awareness comes the ability to consciously work “through them” to create an influence in the mind of those still living primarily out of their unconscious nature, and able to direct them towards a form of awakening to their real nature as a result.
All of what has been labeled “sin” is merely an error in thinking and misuse of our ability to choose and act based on our own thoughts about things. As we think, we create the reality of our thoughts, first inwardly as what forms our perceptual lens and tunes us to the vibration of that reality, which then resonates and forms a gravitational field with that same type of reality all around us. As we think and imagine we connect ourselves to the outer equivalent of our thoughts. We keep ourselves “tuned to the frequency” of our thoughts, where we act as a tuner and receiver to draw in and internally express more of the same type of thoughts. We determine what we (our body) acts as a channel and vehicle for based on how we calibrate ourselves through repetitive thoughts that become habitual as our formative conditioning.
We all have the ability to break patterns as unconscious tendencies, wake up to what we’re really actually doing out of a primarily unconscious state, and begin intentionally acquiring spiritual knowledge that aids us and provides the basis for our awakening through awareness of who we are and what’s actually going on, so we can learn to use our divine, higher capacity of thought, choice, and free will to intentionally begin disconnecting from our habitual patterns and perceptual dynamics, and intentionally begin contemplating other ideas and concepts that change the way we think and perceive, and therefore change how we perceive ourselves and what we naturally form a connection with in others and the outside world. By thinking and feeling in new ways, we begin tuning into those ideas all around us, and they multiply and grow in dominance to the point where they take on a life of their own, and a literal shift in consciousness takes place that moves us to a higher level of self-awareness and creativity.
Our moral development is more about our character and the type of person we become through our own ability to make decisions for ourselves as to what we engage in and become a part of (like) and what we don’t. It’s something that we are fully responsible for as awake and conscious beings that have the ability to self-create by way of our own mind and hand. It’s detaching from the constant emotional states of our body that drive us through the illusions they create, and keep us in bondage of an unconscious existence as being controlled and determined by them. By disassociating from our material existence and residing instead fully within our divine nature, we are no longer compelled by passions and physical urges, and as a result, are not affected by them.
Once we fully gain the ability to direct our own mind and consciousness, and not let others or passionate states take control of us and command our will, we step into our “true nature” as powerful creators of our self and our reality and begin exercising our ability to impose a powerful influence on others and “collective unconscious” of the world which is still governed by emotions of some form. By relinquishing all passions, desires, and material needs as a way of creating ourselves through the illusion they provide, we no longer harbor the need to control others through agendas of some sort, and lose the need to acquire material possessions and play significant roles in the grand illusion of society, and we step more into a universal identity that’s of an entirely different plane all together that’s not affected or determined by this one.
All of our choices and actions become based on our identity as a superior being that has no needs to somehow strive to fulfill through material means, and we begin working “in the world” by mastering our ability to work by way of the forces that control it to the benefit of humanity as a whole of which we are no longer invested outside of its potential for ascension to higher planes of consciousness. When we act as a “neutral force” in the world we acquire the ability to willfully influence it by directing it along a course that serves the greater good of all involved in terms of their soul’s evolution. When we begin working agenda free in every situation, we become a force for good in the world that acts always for the benefit of the whole. Higher consciousness is a unified state that perceives the world around it as “one” and the same, and realizes that one small action creates a rippling effect that multiplies as it propagates through space and time, effecting and modifying the entire astral plane of information.
To achieve higher morality is to have total control over your physical nature and be able to always make good decisions that take everyone involved into consideration. It’s to achieve a state that lacks physical desire and primal needs, and all agenda’s and manipulative schemes as a result. It’s to embody a “self-less” state that always puts itself in service of others because it has no needs to be fulfilled by others and circumstances. It’s the ability to walk into any relationship or situation, not looking to “get”, but instead only to “give” because you’ve learned how to draw your source of power from a purely internal means. By maintaining a “neutral and unbiased state”, we act to neutralize and bring it back into an balanced state of harmony the emotional forces all around us that are actively expressing by unconsciously controlling the will of others. Neutrality acts to temper the active forces in any situation because it doesn’t “take them on and act to amplify them”, and can “direct them” through the simple fact that we’re not “controlled by them”.
When we achieve a state of high morality we maintain principles in a steadfast manner and make conscious decisions for ourselves and our life that set high standards for ourselves. A standard in this case is a level of consciousness where a certain quality of consciousness is being played out and expressed that creates a certain type of reality as an “ideal” (of a higher order) consistently. It never falters from this standard because it can’t be “degraded” by lower forces that fail to produce and effect in it. A person of high morality is a person that “represents” higher standards as a code of conduct that they consistently live out of. Not as a set of rules that they hold themselves to or impose on themselves to control temptations from degrading ideas, but as a state of mind and internal nature (character) that’s literally incapable of moving outside of that level of consciousness in order to create in a lower manner, and is therefore immune to contamination and corruption.
One of the problems we have in understanding our spiritual-energetic nature is we try to view it through the same model as our physical nature. Yet even how we tend to look at our physical nature is largely incorrect because we’ve been conditioned to a firm mindset based almost exclusively on material sciences which is usually only working with a fraction of the information involved, excluding the larger part of our physical make-up which is comprised of invisible fields and forces that are constantly operating within our physical apparatus. While we’ve been taught that our genes and physical make-up is “fixed” and permanent, and we are left at the mercy of whatever our genetic ancestry has given us, we now know scientifically, that this isn’t true.
Only 2% of our entire genetic composition goes into building the proteins that make up our body giving it the physical characteristics and general condition it exists in, while the other 98% (give or take) appears to be a memory processing biocomputer of sorts that’s being constantly programmed by our mind through our perception. As we perceive the world around us, and we process that information by interpreting it to give it meaning, and we build it into a story as a thematic reality that our mind is designed to tell, we simultaneously program the subconscious mind and DNA of the body with those same perceptions, and it acts to produce the material equivalent, both as our body and our outer reality. Everything around us in the material world of Nature is comprised of the same DNA and subconscious mind, both of which are “passive and receptive” in nature, and act as a receiver and transducer for various forms of information that it uses to reform the material body.
Just as the inner is always resonating and absorbing information from the outer and integrating it to become “like” the outer environment of which it’s a fundamental part and must function and survive in, the mind is always “in-forming the body” which serves as a vehicle and house for the mind within the material realm. There’s a constant morphing and transformation going on between parallel and inter-meshed dimensions as a natural means of adaptation that modifies and equalizes as a necessary evolutionary process that allows one aspect to exist and interact within another aspect. In order to exist, function, and operate within one plane or sphere, we have to “become the same” as that plane as a “mental condition” and energetic state.
Likewise, the mind, which constructs the body as its physical equivalent, exists as a field of information that’s in a constant state of transformation through resonance, sympathetic induction, and coherence. It’s constantly being formed, unformed, and reformed by the information it resonates with all around it, that it naturally acts to absorb, integrate and metabolize, shifting and morphing its structure as a paradigm to be able to see and create in new ways. Our mind naturally takes in and becomes one with whatever consciousness it exists within near proximity of that’s of the same nature (kind) as it is (what it naturally resonates with). Whatever is “like us” we act to naturally unite with and become “like” by taking on and acquiring whatever unique characteristics it possesses that are of the same nature, which means we can easily and naturally act as a vehicle or means for expressing it.
The spirit, which exists more as a life-force energy that “activates” and provides the power or energy, so to speak, for producing biological processes as regeneration, growth, and development into fully functioning systems, never actually takes on a form of any kind in the basic sense, but acts more as a fluid-like electricity that temporarily takes on shape of the form it serves to produce by coupling with matter, forming the energetic matrix as a form of lattice that helps structure and hold it together through tension (electromagnetic field), and fuels it’s operation as life giving biological processes. When the spirit leaves the body, it’s no longer “held together” and consciously operated, and so it “dies” and begins disintegrating and decomposing.
The soul acts as a medium that’s comprised of both spirit and essence, and uses the lower mind as a vehicle, just as the mind uses the body for a vehicle. The soul is the essence that spirit couples with to produce a material form out of the memory of itself that’s self-produced through the vehicle of the lower (subconscious) mind and the body (DNA). It operates and is formed by the same evolutionary process of adaptation and modification that’s comes from becoming one with different aspects of itself (frequency, type, and nature) to form a new whole. We only grow and evolve into something else through acquiring diverse qualities that enhance and develop our character in some way that changes our experience of ourselves, providing the soul with new forms of memory that modifies how it creates itself. By acquiring new kinds of experiences that act to “re-inform it”, the soul’s frequency is altered and the pattern as a paradigm inherent within that frequency, and how it naturally acts to structure all aspects of its material existence are altered simultaneously.
All of life that exists in the phenomenal world is created by combinations as coupling between various levels and degrees of the energetic and material world. Each level of complexity is achieved through added layers of consciousness that bestow it with higher and more diverse capacities that act to increase the complexity of its existence. All of the lower world of physical Nature has a soul, mind, and body or physical form. The soul is the accumulated and coherent memory of the kind, type, or species of which it’s a part of, that acts through the subconscious of the collective unconscious to configure the DNA accordingly to produce the etheric hologram (phantom) used as the blueprint for cellular regeneration, specialization, and spatial orientation (mapping) to produce the form as the bio-system of its memory. DNA is like the hardware and the soul the software that determines what operations are performed and conducted by the hardware. The soul, like the mind, is triune in nature as a Higher Soul, collective soul, and individual soul, all of which are produced by the higher aspect coupling with the lower and producing that same aspect on a lower plane as the process of descending from a higher plane of pure energy and unity into a lower plane of division and being located within a greater reality, all of which are various aspects of itself used to produce the reality it exists “within” (fields nested within greater fields) or by expression of the memory its composed of that come through experiences of its own making.
We are constantly in the process of forming and reforming based on what we resonate with, and absorb and become one with in everything around us. Our body, which is the product of our mind, is in a constant state of regenerating itself. While our basic appearance and characteristics may not change much outside of maturing and aging, our internal nature as our character (soul) has the ability to change quite drastically based on what we blend with and bring into expression somehow through and “as” us. Yet, at the same time, because all growth and evolution is based on resonance with the same thing all around us, and the fact that we only grow in an intentional manner through awareness and using our own mind through directed attention, choice, and will, evolution that takes place in a completely unconscious and natural way, can be quite slow, and we can easily digress instead of progressing. It’s only when the higher faculties of the soul and mind are skillfully employed that we grow in a deliberate and substantial manner. If our higher capacities are not awakened within us, and we live with no real awareness of our true ability to self-create in an intentional manner, we simply live out of our conditioning like animals through “trained behavior” born out of a conditioned mindset, and we continue to blend with, readily take on and become one with, and bring into expression more of the same character, ideas, and experiences, reinforcing and strengthening existing memory instead of transforming and evolving it.
When we remain primarily unconscious and a part of the collective unconscious of humanity produced by our identification with our “animal body” that’s designed to function and operate in a completely automatic fashion through instinct and conditioning, and we never become practiced in developing our ability to think and reason for ourselves, and “decide” who and how we’re going to be, then employ those qualities to create our experiences of ourselves, acquiring the memory of those experiences in an accumulative and integrative fashion, reprogramming and reconditioning ourselves by way of our own hand, we become lost in the illusion born out of an unconscious state.
As humans we are both divine and animal. We have a higher nature and a lower nature, bridged and brought together as one by the medium of our individual soul, which contains the memory of both. Our divine nature exists as higher capacities of the mind that can directly influence and direct the reality produced by the lower mind, which exists in a primarily unconscious state that lacks the awareness and ability to self-create. In our lower state we are a product of our conditioning, and are trained to perceptions and behaviors by others who use their will to feed us suggestions. The lower mind of the material world is passive and receptive in nature and readily takes in the suggestions as ideas that form the thoughts and mental impressions of others, and uses them to generate more thoughts of the same nature, programming itself by way of those thoughts.
As we think, we imagine, and build whole realities out of our thoughts. These thoughts tune us to the vibration of those thoughts which has a self-organizing mechanism inherent in it that produces the material equivalent as a pattern or dynamic structure. This material structure produced by the thoughts of the mind, equally programs “all” DNA and the subconscious, not only in the body as the channel for the thoughts to express, but also of the environment surrounding us, which is also a product of the subconscious mind as part of the collective unconscious that governs all of life and Nature, within which we exist as an inherent part. All of our experiences of what we perceive as an outer reality are produced by our subconscious mind, which works by passively taking in whatever thoughts and ideas are active around it. It only acts as a receptor of the will, which are thoughts and ideas being projected and transmitted all around it, or in the ideal situation, by its “own will” as the conscious mind which acts as the gatekeeper of the lower mind and decides what’s allowed to impregnate it, and grow into a reality as a result, and what’s not.
The will is the higher capacity of the mind that can direct the attention of the lower mind, and give it commands as seeded ideas that it wants to grow and produce, first internally through the imagination, then externally through our perception of it around us and our activities based on it. We can alter the content of our mind by deliberately choosing how we “re-inform it”. By intentionally giving it certain types of thought, we work “on ourselves” to recreate ourselves. By choosing what we expose ourselves to in terms of outer ideas being played out around us, what situations and activities we willingly participate in and associate with, what people we maintain relationships with of various sorts, and begin instead to remain fully conscious of how we’re creating ourselves through unconscious absorption and programming.
When we remain fully awake and aware in even the most ordinary parts of our life, and actively choose what we “let in” and allow to take hold by continuing to think about it, and what we act to censor, edit, and keep out of our subconscious mind, we begin creating ourselves in a deliberate and powerful way. We step fully into our only “true responsibility” with a fully awake and aware mind. We begin the process of creating ourselves exactly as we want to be, instead of just “ending up” the way we are due to our conditioning where we were created and established by others through a predominately unconscious state and a complete lack of self-awareness.
Once we wake up within our own life and become fully aware, we begin realizing that in every moment we’re deciding what to let in, take on and become a part of, and create ourselves to be “like” as a result. We realize that even when we’re in relationships and situations that we need to be in in order to live, that we still maintain the ability to choose what we allow to affect us, and what we don’t. We can choose what we focus on, give our attention to, and think about, and what we don’t. When we walk away and leave a situation we can choose not to take it with us and continue thinking about it. We can bring a new awareness to our relationships and realize how they’re acting to develop us based on the character traits and dynamics being consistently demonstrated and acted out, and we can make new decisions based on the clarity that this brings as to whether or not to maintain them or let them go. We can decide with a new level of awareness what new types of relationships we form with new types of people, only choosing ones that we admire and respect and want to become more like. Ones that actively demonstrate desirable qualities and character that we’d like to develop in ourselves by way of the interaction it provides.
By realizing that we grow, develop, and evolve through whatever we naturally absorb, merge with, and blend together with energetically, we become more responsible and proactive in our own life. By realizing that our subconscious mind acts in a natural, non-willful way to absorb whatever ideas are being played out around it that it’s exposed to and exists within near proximity of, we can learn to only place ourselves intentionally in desirable situations, and actively act as the gatekeeper to filter what we consciously choose to let in or keep out. We can learn to utilize the power of our own will to intentionally program ourselves with the ideas we want to experience as a way of developing ourselves by way of those experiences. We can become aware of why we’re the way we are and employ the means to change our mind and our lives in whatever way we want to.
The idea of spiritual guidance, like all things, means different things to different people, so in order to talk about it in a meaningful way, we have to start by defining it. Spiritual guidance indicates receiving information about something that concerns us from a non-local source other than ourselves. We’re asking for guidance from what is sometimes an unknown or somewhat ambiguous source. In the most natural sense of what we could call “ongoing guidance”, we’re always resonating with and drawing in information as ideas from the ether as the unified field that we’re all submersed in and an active part of. This information in the truly spiritual sense exists as archetypes (whole ideas) that come as scalar energy (unified form) that has both acoustic and optical (dual) properties, and as it enters into our mind, unfolds as a feeling that spontaneously produces an inner voice and mental impressions as expanding on an existing idea, revealing what was previously hidden aspects, that come as the result of a “transmission of information” as realizations of some sort.
In the purely spiritual sense, we are given the ability to self-create through choice and free will, and are we are ultimately fully responsible for all of our own creations. The individual right to make decisions and willfully bring them about as a reality that provide us with experiences of our own creation are NEVER violated in the spiritual sense because they can’t be. We are only capable of “accessing and drawing in” information that we act as a natural receptor for through resonance. All information from the spiritual realm of pure energy as archetypal ideas in their potential state, come as realizations around ideas that present us with new opportunities to decide for ourselves. It (information as an outside source) never makes decisions for us, “tells us” what to do, or gives us “point blank answers” to questions. Answers as guidance come through a form of coincidence, introspection, and synchronicity as a chain-of-association, that provides us with new insight around something that brings what was previously unknown elements into full awareness where we gain instant clarity around them, and through the newly acquired awareness we naturally decide.
Any questions and inquiries are directly linked to the answers in the environment around us. Just by wondering about something and thinking about it in an in-depth manner, forms a kind of gravitational field to the answer in everything outside of us. Inquiring about something internally as a true desire to know, sets an intention in place as a vibratory frequency (all thoughts form electromagnetic fields) that resonates with that same idea in everything else, giving it prominence where it stands out, we notice it, and as we place our attention on it we draw it into our mind by thinking about it, and as a result gain new information regarding it. Everything in what we call the “spiritual realm” is energetic in nature (pure consciousness) and requires a local mind and a material body in order to be “received and interpreted” as a coherent part of our personal reality.
We can’t act as a conduit for something we don’t honestly have a desire for, what our mental paradigm won’t allow us to comprehend, or that doesn’t already exist as a form of memory. Whatever we have memories around, we think about and create as conceptualizations in our imagination (memories are replayed and relived in the imagination), programming us to the frequency of that idea as a form of theme, and we become magnetized to it in everything around us, drawing in and interacting with that same idea as it exists in our environment. We can’t obtain or act as a channel for anything we can’t conceptualize, comprehend to the point of forming and internal representation of, or that’s not a part of our soul’s memory in terms of similar experiences.
The only thing that can “come to us” is what’s of the same nature (memory) as we are. When something doesn’t come naturally, it’s because it’s not meant to. It’s because we’re not ready for it in terms of maturity and growth, or where we’re at in a greater process as a phase and stage of our life, or we’re simply not of the same idea in terms of our constitution (frequency), and therefore don’t act to attract and absorb it as an idea that that has the potential for becoming a reality. We only “receive” what we ask for through a desire and imaginary thought process. We only find what we “look for” and intentionally seek out. We only penetrate an idea, or open closed doors through a constant form of action taken on an idea that we’re presented with. When we sit back in a state of limbo not taking any affirmative action because we’re not sure of anything, waiting for stuff to magically come to us, we don’t act as a magnet for anything. All things only come to us when we decide and take action on those decisions, which opens up a means for new things to come into play through the activity itself.
All knowledge is acquired through a desire and connection to it and through constantly pursuing and engaging in the activity of acquiring it by becoming one with it experientially. We only obtain what we have a love for, connection to, and strong desire for. Whatever we form an internal representation as living concept, becomes a frequency that we act to program ourselves with, and we become an antenna and magnet for it. A thought that’s imagined with intensity (turned into a sensory reality) forms an electromagnetic field as a vibratory frequency that has a self-organizing mechanism inherent in it. This organizational mechanism acts to attract and naturally bring about more of that idea as an experience that allows us to gain deeper and deeper forms of self-realization. We don’t need to ask “anyone” for our own answers, we simply have to tune into our own thoughts and feelings regarding it, form a strong desire for it by associating positive and compelling emotions to it, setting an intention and desire for it, then pay attention to any form of associated ideas that come to us from a variety of sources in our immediate environment. As associated ideas come to us we intuitively recognize them as a form of inspiration that brings realization into the true nature of the idea. This realization “is” the guidance.
When we turn to other people as professed “psychics” or clairvoyants, asking for information about ourselves and our life, we’re opening ourselves to a large array of what can be very deceptive or incorrectly interpreted information. Psychics work by reading the energy around you which comes as feelings that form a mental impression as symbolic metaphorical images, which are sometimes accompanied by a voice as the meaning of the images. These mental impressions are a form of memory that’s imprinted in your aura (mind-field) as thoughts that you dwell in repetitively with strong emotions or that are of an intense nature. While it’s possible for anyone to literally “read someone’s mind” by forming rapport with them, and seeing their mental impressions or “hear” thoughts as more of a feeling, it still has to be interpreted in terms of what it means, and when this happens, you’re now working out of the psychics mental paradigm, and who knows if the interpretation is going to be accurate or not. As anyone knows, observing a situation from a detached perspective and not really able to identify with it, as opposed to being “in the experience” having it as a part of a larger congruent reality, can be very different.
When you rely on someone else to tell you what your answers are and what your direction in life should be, or what decisions you should make in different situations, you’re literally letting them take control of your will, your life, and your soul’s destiny. You’re relying on someone to “know” for you, instead of knowing yourself. The entire goal of the soul within the material realm is to become self-aware, and to gain deep realization into its true nature and ability to willfully self-create. This only comes by self-reflecting, turning inward and recognizing your own feelings, becoming aware of your true nature, what you feel a strong love for and connection to, and making decisions based on that.
True inner guidance comes by connecting to our self on a higher plane, through what’s called our “Higher-Self” or “Superconsciousness”. This aspect of ourselves (notice this is always plural) exists on a higher plane that’s “above this plane” and therefore able to see it in its entirety, while simultaneously acting as the choreographer for it. Our Higher Self communicates with us through our own inner voice that’s being used by a different authority, and nearly always takes on a parental attitude of teaching us by discussing things with us, allowing us to gain deeper insights into them, or as a lover that’s exceedingly intimate and is a fundamental part of us that always has our best interest in mind, while knowing everything about us. In this relationship there’s never a self-serving agenda involved, no errors in thinking or perceiving, and all guidance as answers to our inquiries come as experiences that expand our awareness around things, providing us with the information we need to make a clear decision with full accountability as to what they’ll produce.
All of our actions, which come as a continuum of feelings, thoughts, and emotions that create a reality by living out a story about it, are creative in nature and we incur karma because of them. All actions produce an effect of an equal or greater magnitude. The decisions we make, and what we do because of those decisions, form who we are as a person and imposes a direction on our life. Whenever we look outside of ourselves to someone or something else, whether an actual person or “spirit guide”, looking, not for insight around ideas, but for a decision to be made for us, we throw fate to the wind, and sell our soul by becoming a channel for others to command our will. As a general rule, we should NEVER give our will over to another by letting them make decisions for us, or tell us what to do, and therefore “control us” as a result.
What’s commonly referred to as “spirit guides” or “ascended masters”, can mean a variety of things based on what system a person has been trained under, and what they’re actually “connecting with and accessing” as a result. But all are “entities” of various sorts that are usually metaphorical in nature as mythological gods, wise people who have gone before us, or even animal spirits that represent qualities and characteristics as behaviors that are ideal for performing natural operations. Angels and daemons, for example, represent individual qualities and characteristics that only perform certain operations, and are not composite beings that have free will. Humans are the only beings within the material realm that are imbued with the ability to choose and the will to actualize that choice as an experience of reality. As we choose, we set a reality into motion that creates and gives us a certain type of experience as the result of our choice. If we don’t like it, we’re free to make alterations or new decisions to change it, and if we do like it, then we keep going and continue creating more of that reality. Either way, the choice is ours.
What many people refer to as “God”, is in reality, our Higher-Self on a higher dimension, that we’re intimately connected to, and who knows the divine plan of our life that was laid out as a pattern before we were ever born into a physical body. The whole purpose of our physical existence is to live out as an experience the pattern of our karma, which was created in whole before we were ever born. Choice and free will is not a fact or an illusion, but rather something that was decided and willfully set into motion from a higher plane as the enactment of our accumulated decisions as an ongoing creative process. Karma, is what we call the “absolute law” because it works out of vibration, which automatically produces the pattern of that vibration as a reality that provides us the experience of it. We only truly learn (form and develop) through experience, which forms all of our memories. Our paradigm as our mental structure or “model of the world”, is formed through accumulated memories that are all integrated to form a harmonious cohesive whole. This life and all that proceed out of it are based on vibratory frequency as an indigenous pattern. There’s no getting around or side-stepping this. Whatever frequency we vibrate at determines the pattern we naturally form as our “perception” of ourselves, others, and the world in general. Our life is the way it is because it’s how we perceive it, and the relationship we form with ourselves in everything else, that forms a consistent story line, that we live as a consistent outer experience.
Every decision we make, moment by moment, that determines our actions, is creative in nature. We willfully (intentionally) act out our decisions, turning them into reality as the expression and experience of them. When we give other people the right an ability to make decisions for us, we surrender our creative power within our own lives, and give it to others to create for us. Any decisions and action taken on that decision renders karma (cause and effect). Only humans are gifted with the ability to self-create by making decisions for themselves and acting out those decisions to produce an experience of reality that simultaneously creates them by way of that experience.
The animal kingdom, and even the divine kingdom outside of humans (as far as we know), don’t have the ability to choose and self-create through those choices to develop new qualities and characteristics that alter or determine their destiny. This is purely a human gift based on the “fall of angels” who acted collectively to create the human race, giving us multiple qualities and composite characteristics. We are complex beings formed out of “unique combinations and dynamic formulas” that we are in charge of producing, rather than singularities as single qualities that always act to perform the same operation in an automatic and routine fashion. We are composite beings who can direct our own development and how we naturally express to create realities based on the accumulative experiences gained from our choices and the reality those choices produced as an experience that forms our soul’s memory, out of which we continue to make decisions and form similar experiences as an ongoing evolutionary process.
Our intuition isn’t necessarily a skill or tool that we use at will, although it can be, but comes more as a basic way of perceiving and interacting with the world around us. It comes as feelings about things as a direct experience where we know about something without a logical basis for knowing or without learning about it through our life experiences. It comes more as an inner knowing, that’s connecting with the inner nature of everything and everyone around us. It’s more like a soul-to-soul recognition, that penetrates and sees into matter through the mental atmosphere around something that it’s acting to emanate. Our soul, which is synonymous with our mind, operates out of “inner senses” or spiritual qualities that sense the “inner quality” about things and ideas. It sees through matter to the spirit or quality of consciousness that’s embodied in matter, and expressing through it as a kind of personality or quality of being. We can directly sense and interpret the feeling attitude that underlies and forms the behaviors being expressed. What we experience intuitively doesn’t have anything to do with the outer appearance of something or how it’s being presented in terms of outward appearances, but always senses the motivation and true intentions by the feelings we get when in the presence of their energy.
This ability to communicate soul-to-soul and experience the true inner nature of something as inner resonance of some sort that either harmonize with their outer expression (appearance), or contrasts it, is how we recognize congruence as integrity, or a lack of it, that attempts instead to hide its real nature and intentions. Through this “inner recognition”, we can also learn to tell true knowledge from false ideas. We can know what’s real and what’s not, because intuition “about” something doesn’t operate out of logic or rationalizing, but out of the universal laws that are based on form, function, and order. Qualities of consciousness, which stimulate us through feelings and emotions, always reveal the psychology or idea being played out. The quality around something as the feeling we get from it, tells us whether or not it’s true, right, correct, honest, and so on. Again, this doesn’t come to us through a thought process about it or our own internal rationalizing, or whether or not we can explain it from a concept of it we’ve formed in order to somehow prove it, but rather as a clear feeling of knowing without knowing “how” we know, that either makes the idea compelling and we move deeper into it, or make it repelling, and we disconnect, change our focus, and move away from it.
The question then becomes, how do you know the difference? How do you know whether or not you’re simply processing and perceiving things through your personal model, and either approving or disapproving of them based on your ability to logically understand it, or where you can’t explain it exactly, but you simply know it to be true, or acting as a form of inner guidance that’s designed to either move you into ideas or away from them. The real illusion often lies in the fact that while we think our ability to logically explain something or form a working concept of it is a good way to tell if it’s true or not, we’re always using our own “model of the world” to perceive and interpret ideas, which, chances are, is built out of a massive collection or errors that’s only capable of discerning through the same errors that we’re mistaking for truth or facts.
We’re always using what we “already know” to interpret everything else in order to “know it” by being able to perceive it through our current level of understanding. So anything that can’t be perceived through the same set of errors, can’t be meaningfully interpreted or “validated” as true using our model. Intuition, which is the perception of truth as laws operating within an idea, can be felt and known, without being able to explain or reason as to what you know and why. Because it perceives the inner nature and workings of people, things, and situations, as a recognition of their mental, energetic atmosphere, it’s always recognizing the truth of things. As soon as we try to explain why or what we know, we begin reshaping it to resemble the errors of our mental model, which is constructed primarily out of what we’ve been taught by others, and accepted as true, that we incorporated into our belief-system which becomes our perceptual lens.
As we come across “truth” as knowledge of some sort, using our intuition, which recognizes only the laws involved, we can tell by how it makes us feel in response to it, whether or not it’s true. All knowledge comes to us through a form of “seek and find” method as a pathway to knowledge or a chain-of-associated ideas that involves a kind of research as a form of treasure hunt. A search where we first have the desire in us for the knowledge as a form of connection, curiosity, or fascination, which involves us in the consistent activity of searching it out. We’re always noticing it and looking for it somehow. One avenue becomes an open door that feeds our curiosity, engrossing us with a deeper sense of fascination, wonder, and awe, and we find hidden clues within it, that when researched lead to whole new ideas of a similar nature that propels us on through an ongoing quest for knowledge that can often last a lifetime(s), never really subsiding or leaving us, but only taking us deeper into it while expanding the breath of knowledge attained through its interconnectedness to everything else.
It becomes, as the saying goes, “how far down the rabbit hole do you want to go”? Knowledge exists as layers that all interpenetrate each other, and form new insights through the incorporation of knowledge that modifies our paradigm, allowing us to see new things that we couldn’t see before. Through consistently evolving our mental paradigm through integration and synthesis of new types of information, we begin seeing life in a brand new way, and can readily see things that eluded us before or that we resisted and posed ourselves against as a result. Our logical, rationing ability as a way of interpreting things, is a produce of our mental paradigm
Intuition is how we perceive the world around us through its interconnection and wholeness. It’s the ability of the soul to penetrate matter and see directly into the spiritual essences of things as their “inner” nature. This same penetrating ability allows us to recognize the truth in all things, regardless of what the outer appearance or staged behavior is. Intuition moves us into things through an inner connection with them. It allows us to see the truths that reside in any idea or branch of knowledge produced by an individual, where certain aspects become illuminated with a sense of gravity towards them, and provide us with the seeds to continue our investigation allowing a whole series of interrelated idea to start unfolding, and we step into their secrets, wide eyed and filled with a sense of anticipation. Intuition makes learning a passionate pursuit where we learn about ourselves through the experience of learning about everything else. All learning becomes a personal journey back into the essence of who we truly are. We only “know” everything else as an “inner knowing” or form of intimacy (into me see). One produced by our authentic self in relationship with the authentic, though hidden nature of everything else.

One of the most powerful things you can do to become self-aware is to begin taking conscious control of what you say. By becoming aware of what we say or what we tend to talk about, we can become aware of our own style of thinking. Words that make up the sentences that we speak have the power to shape visual imagery associated with them, which acts to program our subconscious mind to produce them as a physical manifestation or outer experience. What we talk about, and the attitude and stories we form by how we talk, reveal in very specific terms what our “model of the world” is, and how we use our model to fashion our realities and shape ourselves by way of those realities. Words that are spoken, bring the words as internal thoughts outward in a form of communication that elicits the same type of realities in whomever we’re speaking to. Words form the very basis of our thinking and act to shapes ideas as sound into realities internally, that are then used to express and call forth those realities externally by actively speaking them.
While many people believe that what they think and talk about is an accurate depiction and expression of a factual reality, and that because of this they’re communicating truthfully, the fact is, nothing could be further from the truth. Our perception of life and reality outside of us is an interpretation that remolds it to be “like us”. Our mind as a paradigm or thematic pattern, takes in information from the outside world and translates it into a story-line as a personalization of it. We’re always “within” our mind’s paradigm looking out, and only “see” in the external world what matches our internal world and can be explained, described, and understood using our paradigm. We literally abstract or pull out of any situation the parts and aspects that resonate with our model, then recompose those aspects to tell a story out of them as a way of experiencing them. Because of this unique feature of the human mind, every single person that’s apart of the same outer reality or event, will form a unique and different experience of it. If five people participate in the same thing, you’ll get five distinct interpretations, all of which “noticed” different things, and created a story out of it by how they put those abstract aspects together in a cohesive way to experience them in a consistent manner so they make sense with all of their experiences. We never experience things or other people as they are, but as we remake them.
The words we speak are formed into internal imagery that gives life to them as actual and real possibilities. Our thoughts, which come as an inner voice, utilizes our imagination which forms them into possible outer realities based on what memories or ideas we’ve associated to they words themselves. Thoughts are the seeds for producing whole realities, first internally as reliving and recombining memories, forming conceptualizations and internal representations as our creative style for expression. Not only do we think the same type of thoughts repeatedly, but we imagine the same type of scenarios over and over, different only as the modifications necessary to apply them to various outer circumstances. While they vary in application, they remain cohesive and consistent in the theme that’s used to shape them. As we think we create. Our thoughts as internal dialogue are the active use of our will. What we think about we’re simultaneously in the process of creating as our experiences. What you think and speak is not an accurate account of your life, but your life is a direct reflection of your thoughts. All reality as we know it is subject to the individual experiencing it. The inner exists in relationship to the outer, and turns universal and objective reality into a personal subjective reality as the experience of it.
As you speak you call forth the reality inherent in your words. As you talk to others, the words that you use and the attitude you speak them with, stimulate in them the same type of reality, and they become a co-creator in that reality. By telling them what life is like for us, we form an image of ourselves in their mind by how they think about what we’re saying. As they picture what we’re saying, they form a similar interpretation, and share in our beliefs about ourselves. This subjective reality as a personalization forms a belief system that’s projected and superimposed over our outer reality as a way of seeing, experiencing, and creating only what matches our belief about it. This is why beliefs are difficult to identify from truth, because they’re our own creation and form the very foundation for how we create our experiences as our basic outer perception.
One of the best ways to begin gaining an in-depth insight into your own mind, is to simply begin the practice of objectively listening or witnessing what you say to others. As you talk naturally, periodically hesitate, and move out of the associated position of being “in the experience” you’re talking about, and listen to what you just said, and notice what you see in it in terms of the belief system or paradigm you’re living out of. Listen to the reality it indicates. Notice how you’re presenting yourself to others. And simply reflect on it, allowing a chain of associated ideas to take place as a way of following them back to their roots. Notice that as you objectively listen to yourself as being outside of the experience you’re talking about, without emotional attachments, that a whole series of memories as associated ideas will flash through your mind. And again, just observe them, and allow yourself to realize where they come from and gain insight into them, as self-realization. Simultaneously you’ll begin recognizing how your outer expression as verbalizing thoughts reveals what and how you tend to think. What perspective you take to create your own experiences, what it says about you, and who you become by way of it. Don’t judge it or try to explain and justify it, simply witness it as if you were observing or listening to someone else.
Once you gain the incredible insight listening to yourself brings, you can extend the practice by learning how to think about what you say before you say it. You can move from an unconscious position of automatic and spontaneous communication, to one of thoughtful and deliberate communication. You can begin asking yourself in any situation, what do I want to create by what I’m about to say, and how will what I say and the attitude I say it with, influence the person or situation I’m saying it too? What will they form in their mind based on what I’m saying? What mental impression or mood am I creating by how and what I talk about? What image am I conveying that will form their impression of me, and what type of ideas they automatically associate to me.
By viewing words as cause that produces an equal and predictable effect, we can begin using our words to strategically produce a specific affect in others. We can realize that we have the ability to call forth and create whatever we speak as an internal image. We can begin realizing that it’s through communication that we naturally direct the mind of others. Whatever ideas we’re giving life to inside of us by thinking about them, become the thoughts of others by how we express them. We can begin directing other people’s mind’s by learning to direct our own mind. By becoming conscious of this dynamic process of creating through mental influence, we are provided with the means to begin taking control of our own thoughts, and becoming responsible for how we influence people in a direct and indirect manner. We can begin seeing things about ourselves that eluded us before and remained hidden from our direct awareness. We can begin realizing in very clear terms what our mental model is, what attitudes and beliefs govern our life and act to create our experiences, and through this realization we can begin working with them consciously and intentionally through the creative power of choice and will.

One of the most natural aspects of our everyday experience is this constant inner dialogue going on within our mind as a form of discussion, negotiation, or argument between different aspects or parts of ourselves. This natural phenomenon is evident in how we describe it when we say that “one part of me wants to do this, while another part of me wants to do that”. This split decision causes us to feel torn between ideas, and often leaves us never really making a firm decision while constantly going back and forth between extremes of the same idea. This same reality is often depicted as a devil on one shoulder, and an angel on the other, both whispering in our ear. Carl Jung recognized this basic process of consciousness always going on, and developed the idea of the psyche being composed of multiple archetypes or personalities that are always engaged in discussion and persuasion as part of our normal thinking. Of course this idea wasn’t unique to Jung, but is a basic part of ancient wisdom and the archetypes of mythology as aspects of consciousness that represent different personalities, and astrology based on the individual make-up being based on the archetypes and their main focus within a persons basic personality. These are not to be mistaken for “multiple personalities”, which is an entirely different condition, but rather as different aspects of one personality.
These inner voices, all with personalities of their own, each exerting themselves in various situations, competing for control of our will, are actually what in psychology we call “sub-personalities”, “inner aspects”, or “different parts”, all of which make the greater overall personality. We’re born with a cluster of archetypal personalities as part of our soul’s make-up, and we acquire them as we go through life from our conditioning, events of strong emotional impact, extreme fear, or trauma’s of some sort. Our parent’s voice, for example, becomes a natural part of our inner dialogue that continues to play out and talk to us from the same attitude, perspective, intention, and demeanor. Our belief system, likewise, comes as an inner discussion that’s always telling us about something from the perspective of the belief it represents. When we encounter shocking, fearful, or intense situations, we can draw into us and take on new aspects that are ideally suited for negotiating that situation “for us”, or as a means of coping with it. Whenever we’re devastated in some way, and fall apart, we let down our resistance to outside forces and influences, and become vulnerable to them through a form of magnetism.
Whatever emotional state we indulge in, we polarize ourselves to, become a magnet for the consciousness of that emotion, and draw into us thoughts that create realities out of the emotions as a possible expression of it. We “take on” the quality of consciousness equivalent to the emotional state, and think thoughts that form inner realities that express and produce more of that emotion. These emotional thoughts, seemingly generated by our mind as the expression of the emotions, take on a life of their own, become an aspect of our personality, and continue to operate in us through a voice that becomes a natural part of our thinking. It’s an aspect of the emotional state that produces it that perceives everything from that perspective, and has its role and intention “as” that perspective. It stays alive in us by thinking through us, and always talking to us in a convincing manner, negotiating the terms of its existence.
The sub-personality is always describing things, explaining them, and pointing them out while telling us about them. While they’re active “in us”, we are rendered passive, and allow them to exert themselves by giving them the stage to speak freely. Even when we recognize them, and willfully subdue them, as soon as our guard is down, they reassert themselves and begin controlling our thoughts without our direct awareness. They’re so automatic that they become a natural part of us. After awhile, we can’t separate ourselves from them, come to depend on them, and let them run us and use our mind and will to create by way of us. As long as we fail to integrate the parts, they continue to exert themselves without our direct awareness, through our subconscious nature. Whatever exists in us at the subconscious level, meaning without our direct awareness of it, we continue to act out in an automatic fashion, usually producing what ultimately becomes an internal conflict. They form opposing unconscious aspects of ourselves that go against conscious aspects. We make a decision consciously to do something, and then our subconscious mind brings into play everything that contradicts it and is acting to prevent it, sabotaging our willful efforts. Because these aspects were formed out of intense emotional states, whenever we begin reliving them, or they rise in us and begin playing out by controlling our thoughts, they’re accompanied by strong emotions, which tend to overpower us, and negate rational and reasonable thinking that’s devoid of a strong emotional component.
When two ideas come into direct conflict, each represented by a different aspect of ourselves, the one which elicits the strongest emotion tends to win out. While our first approach may be to fight against the emotional aspect preventing us from consciously progressing in a more favorable direction through active choice and will, this can prove hopeless and at best a temporary gain through dominance and suppression, yet the real solution lies in negotiating terms with the sub-personality, by gaining realization around it, what its purpose and agenda is, what it’s meant to do, and thanking it for its service to you by helping you through the difficult situation in which you acquired it in, then telling it to leave, while mentally forming a pathway out of your body and sending it back out into the universe to be of service to someone else.
All energies and natural forces as qualities of consciousness only come into us through a vacancy or void that creates a vacuum as magnetism of some sort, which we could think of as a form of invitation that pulls or draws it into us through resonance, we can simultaneously realize that regardless of the role it takes on, the intention is beneficial because it was designed to help us through a situation we were in as a state of mind that attracted it, or awakened it in us. While we tend to think of the mind as a product of the brain or heart, and therefore “set” and comprised of fixed qualities, the fact of the matter is we are born with a constitution as a set of information and memories that form our initial personality, and we are engaged in a constant process of growth and development through a constant exchange of energy with everything around us. The mind is energetic and invisible in nature, and works through vibration, sympathetic induction, and synthesis, in much the same way we take in the molecules of the air around us by breathing it, which then become an essential part of our molecular structure, while discharging or exhaling molecules no longer needed as a form of recycling. Likewise, the food we eat becomes the building blocks that form our physical body, determining our health as a physical state or condition. Our mind is the electromagnetic energy system of our body that’s drawing into it energies as qualities the consciousness around it. Blending with and becoming the same as them, altering the vibration of the mind through the integration, while emanating or sending back out energies no longer magnetized to it.
The energies of the mind as the invisible forces in the invisible space around us, are “qualities of consciousness” with a singular nature that form an aspect of a larger matrix of energies and become a sub-personality with a specific perspective and perception, that forms a part of our overall personality, modifying it by incorporating the singular perspective, altering the overall perspective. We experience it as a “voice in our head” as “thought” that enter into and become a part of our normal perspective of everyday reality. Because they come as thoughts and feelings, we often don’t realize that they’re not our own, and are something we “acquired” instead, and we give our will to them by letting them rise in us as our perception, thoughts, and interpretation of the meaning events take on. They begin discussing everything as a form of argument that clashes with and negates other aspects, always seeking to win over and resume control of our perception and thought processes.
Like all things of the mind and the invisible plane of pure energy that we are submerged in and an integral part of, the only way to extract unwanted aspects, or aspects whose part and role is no longer needed or beneficial, is through recognition and awareness of them and how they operate to influence and control you. Because we acquire these automatically while in an unconscious state of delirium (emotion, trauma, shock, intense fear, etc.), and they’re absorbed into our unconscious mind and arise in us automatically without our direct awareness of them, they continue with us until we become conscious and aware of them. Once we become aware of different aspects of ourselves, and how they exist in conflict with other aspects of our nature, and we realize how they’re serving us through protection and service of some sort, we can appreciate them, feel gratitude for their help, and let them know they’re no longer needed. They no longer serve a desirable or necessary purpose. We can then locate them in our body through the emotion they are a part of and the bodily sensations it produces, and direct them to leave while mentally escorting them out of our body and back into the universal soul of mass consciousness where they’ll become available to be drawn in by someone else in need of their services.
The interesting thing about qualities or aspects of consciousness is that they exists on the plane of the mind as consciousness, and can only be worked with from that same plane. The mind controls the mind, and our own conscious awareness and imagination is used to acquire, exchange, utilize, and discharge the consciousness available all around us. We work with our mind by way of our mind. We can realize that our will commands aspects of the mind not only as energies around us, but through the mind of others. We are constantly taking on and exchanging consciousness with everyone and everything around us. By becoming aware of this we can simultaneously learn how to exercise control over it.
Once we realize that our soul as our consciousness actually “jumps out of” and exits our body during events of fear, shock, and trauma, causing what you could think of as a vacancy and a form of vacuum as a magnetic pull that draws in energy equivalent to or of the same vibration and quality of our state of mind, or that’s inherent in the situation, we can begin realizing the powerful role emotions and fear play in governing us through acquisition of consciousness that increase and amplifies the state itself. Fear draws into us consciousness of the reality inherent in the fear, and makes us think fearful thoughts, or react with anger and rage, through an inner voice that begins dialoguing with us about the fear and from the perspective and attitude that sees the same type of fear in everything around us just through its perception of it. Looking through the lens of fear, we only see more fear or what warrants fear.
By learning how to manage our state of mind, we can recognize aspects we’ve acquired that aren’t “us”. We can begin distinguishing between our real self and our acquired self. We can begin realizing that certain aspects of our thinking are associated to specific events of our life where we “acquired them” and they became a normal part of our thinking. We can begin realizing how they play a part in sabotaging other aspects of our life, or argue against and negotiate through seduction to prevent willfully bringing about desired changes through conscious decisions to do so. By becoming aware of their strong emotional component we can not only resist their control, but learn how to identify them further, while simultaneously using compelling emotions to fuel and empower our conscious decisions. By gaining realization around them and what they act to prevent, protect us from, deal with, or cause, we can see their purpose and how they were intended to protect us, and how through that same attitude and behavior now act to sabotage our intentional efforts, we can thank it for its help, and tell it it’s no longer needed, then consciously and willfully release it, freeing it from the body and mind, and no longer be subject to it. Anytime we are “removing” one aspect creating a void or opening, we have to consciously draw into that space what we want to fill it, or it’ll do it automatically with whatever is available without our direction. As we create an opening or vacuum we have call or pull our soul back in to fill it, recovering it and becoming whole again. This is traditionally referred to as “Soul Retrieval” in Shamanic Arts.
All energy as spirits, entities, qualities, or emotions is subject to and commanded by the will of the human mind. We willfully acquire them through needing or wanting, or by vacating our body creating an opening for them to enter, take hold, and remain apart of us. While they occupy a part of us, our own soul can’t fully enter back into and operate through us, and remains on the outer boundaries of the mind where an opening has to be created in order to draw our own soul aspects back into our body. Only through awareness, realization, and willful control over them can we release or discharge them. The problem is, once they become a part of us, we build our identity around them as an essential part of ourselves, and form a kind of love for them, and hold them to us as a result. We don’t want to let them go because we’ve become accustomed to the story we began living out of them due to the traumatic circumstances we acquired them through, and feel as if we would lose an important part of ourselves by letting them go that would change tour very psychological make-up by making us encounter and experience in us what they were designed to protect us from. We only draw into us and acquire consciousness that’s of service somehow and therefore useful.
Even when we perceive them as bad or destructive, they’re preventing us from coming face-to-face with other aspects of ourselves that we fear even more, even though they might be ultimately good and serve our growth. For example, anger and hostility may be acquired in response to something terrifying that was exactly what we needed to deal with that event, and so it helped us cope and be able to get through it, that once the terrifying event passed, we still maintain an aspect of us that approaches ordinary experiences with an attitude of anger and aggressiveness, or we see them in a way that makes us feel angry and aggressive that’s an inappropriate response. We can continue to look at ordinary things from a perspective that warrants anger and a hostel attitude. In this way, the very quality that protected us in one situation, now becomes our downfall because it becomes a primary part of our everyday life and we’re “angry a lot”, or it becomes an inappropriate response that we can’t seem to help, and we begin employing volatile reactive behavior in the ordinary sense.
While we may come to a conscious decision of no longer needing their diversion, and are willfully choosing to step into what we originally feared and resisted, they continue to play out preventing it by introducing contradicting thoughts and emotions that go against our active decisions and hold us to the same attitudes, identity, and behavioral tendencies they served to develop in the first place. Once they become apart of us, we mistake them for being us, and continue to let them control us by living out of them and never sticking with our decisions that would eradicate them by rendering them subjective to our will.
Like all things, the idea is never to fight against or resist something, but rather to remove it and its influences from the system altogether, modifying the mind, and removing all blocks to progressive growth through willful decision making. At the level of the mind and consciousness, awareness is the key! Anything we remain unaware of continues to play out in our life, without our consent. By becoming aware of unconscious or shadow aspects of ourselves, we can dissolve them through awareness itself. Not through hating them or judging them to be bad, weak, or wrong, but rather by recognizing how they were serving us at some level and were exactly what we needed to deal with the situation we were in when we attracted them. When they entered us they were helping us to cope with and negotiate some situation that was difficult for us, or that we didn’t feel equipped to deal with. It’s only through true recognition and love and gratitude, that we work with the very consciousness that makes up our own being and serves to create our life experiences and impose a distinct direction on our life’s path by playing a part in controlling our choice and will to bring about certain realities. Love, appreciation and gratitude elicit a natural state of cooperation necessary to direct energetic forces.

Karma is a major component of Eastern Philosophies and Ancient Wisdom, all of which include as a foundation the idea of reincarnation and the eternal nature of the soul within the timeless realm of consciousness that exists in multiple levels and varying degrees simultaneously. While many people grasp the principle of cause and effect that’s inherent in this idea, many fail to recognize the conscious and ethical considerations, as well as the true nature of human beings as three-part in nature while spanning multiple dimensions, only part of which we are conscious and aware of in the direct sense. This fundamental three-part nature includes an aspect of the mind/self as the Higher-Self, that never fully incarnates in the physical realm of the two lower-physical minds, but resides on the plane above the material plane and not only oversees it from a neutral and impartial perspective, but acts to orchestrate many of the meaningful events that take place within the lower plane.
The true nature of karma is not as individual or random acts per say, but actions that come from the sum total of our evolutionary development which is expressing in every moment as out whole being. Just as our current mind – self is the culmination of all our life experiences as the memories we formed by how we interpreted the events of our life to give them meaning which formed a general “theme” as a kind of template that we’re always using to create our experiences out of, our karma is the product of accumulated experiences as memory that forms our perspective, perception, intention and desires, and motivates all of our actions and reactions.
Though karma has been trivialized in the West, as most spiritual ideas are, we don’t experience or incur karma from or in random events or activities in which we were not at cause, or that didn’t come about out of a desire or intention of some sort. Karma is created through willful acts that are deliberate and intentional in nature, where we are actively and purposely “causing something”. It’s not random, cold, mechanistic action, but intelligently regulated and infused with spiritual compassion, even in the smallest areas of our life, because the universe exists for the enactment, benefit, and welfare of all involved. Every time we’re involved in acting out and creating more karma, it’s always with others who share the same karma, and act to “give it back to us” as reactions to our actions or rendering direct consequences of our actions.
Yet even though we’re always in the process of receiving the consequences to our actions from the outside world, we are solely responsible for our self, and are the only ones creating our karma, keeping it alive, and continually expressing it through our attitudes and behavior, and engrained tendencies. Because it’s a part of our essential self as our mental paradigm formed solely from our own self-created experiences as our memories, it can only be resolved by changing our own mental paradigm and moral character. Most karma is developed through the activity of our ego, physical desires, and attachments and the need to somehow control others by exercising power over them. When we seek to control others and the circumstances that involve others through an intentional act of some sort designed to produce a specific reaction or outcome, we create and incur karma.
Any willful act is karmic in nature and something we alone are fully responsible for. Any quests we undertake for lust, greed, and to attain power of some form, is usually the expression of existing karma that acts to create more of the same type of experiences born out of consequences of our , over and over again. Karma is a cause and effect relationship that gives back to us actions of the same nature that we put out as a corresponding reaction. Every action produces a like reaction. But not all actions are karmic. Any action or event that wasn’t produced out of a desire or intention, while it may still render consequences, are not caused by us intentionally and do not remain with us as unconscious tendencies that continue driving our behaviors. Neutral events that happen without intention or deliberation, and that don’t produce a pronounced reaction in us, are NOT a form of karma. So things like not getting a parking place, having someone be rude to us, or being rear-ended while at a stop light, is not karma, but is merely a cause and effect relationship going on around us in which we had no direct or intentional part in creating. If they came as a direct consequence or reaction to our actions, though not intentional or with a motive of some sort, then they’re still not considered karmic. If however they come as a direct response to an intentional and deliberate act on our part, which involved deliberate thought and motive of some sort, then it’s karmic in nature and draws more of the same karma on us through the consequences it brings.
Karma isn’t a singular act that comes out of nowhere and is not a product of a person’s normal character, but rather comes out of the summation of a person’s development and is a natural tendency they display and engage in as a part of their attitude and normal mind-set. The tendency to control, manipulate, or try to exercise power over others, is karma as character traits that cause more of the same type of karma. Likewise the person that allows themselves to be controlled or manipulated, and who give their power away to those manipulating them, is also karma, and is a part of the same type of karma as the one seeking control over them. Because they share karma as a natural cause and effect relationship that cooperatively participates in complementary roles of the same pattern, they live out their karma through the natural relationship that forms between them.
Because karma is the result of conditioned tendencies and unconscious patterns that are emotionally driven by desire and attachment of some sort, we are born into and naturally incur various forms of karma as shared tendencies that are acted out with a group. We have family karma as tendencies acted out within various roles by the whole family, as well as race karma, national and cultural karma, and karma of the present age. The best way to become aware of our karma is through self-reflection and noticing what we have “issues around”, strong emotional reactions too, or agendas that are emotionally driven and come about in what is largely an unconscious manner. We can notice the patterns that govern our life and what ideas we play out in an intentional manner that tells a story of some sort. We can begin recognizing what themes underlie all of our relationships. Naturally we can look at any area where we feel a strong compulsion or aggressive action, or frequently have an intense reaction to that draw very distinct consequences as the thematic patterns that govern our life experiences, while giving up our need to defend our actions by justifying them. It’s this tendency to defend and justify our right to do something that keeps us unconscious of the reality it produces through what are for the most part, natural and automatic behaviors.
Key points to consider:
• Karma is produced by willful acts that involve desire, intention and are done with a distinct motive of some sort and intentionally.
• Karma is when we are directly at “cause” and the one producing an effect or reaction that draws on us the consequences of our actions.
• Our karma is acted out with others who share the same type of karma as behavioral dynamics. Other people play a complementary role and cooperatively participate in our dramas and agendas.
• Karma is regulated through a form of spiritual compassion of our Higher-Self that works in an impartial manner for the benefit and welfare of all involved.
• Random, neutral, and mechanical acts that we had no part in causing are NOT karma for us.
• Karma stems from the summation of our evolutionary development as our mental paradigm and natural or conditioned perceptions and tendencies.
• We are participating in multiple levels of karma all the time as family, community, work place, national, cultural, racial, and the karma of the present age of humanities evolution as a whole.
• To change or resolve our karma is to recognize and become aware of our own subconscious tendencies and the motive behind our deliberate actions that are creative in nature, and cultivate qualities and beliefs that counteract them. It always comes by working with our own subconscious mind and bringing light to tendencies we act out without direct awareness of what we’re doing exactly or why.
