How we Create Ourselves through our Life Experiences

Once we gain a fundamental understanding of how consciousness as an energetic flow works, we can acquire the self-awareness necessary to create in a much more meaningful way. The principle represented in Sacred Geometry by the Monad is the toroidal energy system that operates within the material world as an electromagnetic field that functions through the principle of metabolism and assimilation. There’s no such thing as universal principles that only operate on some levels, or within a certain set of circumstances or species. This is a universal law, which means it’s a fundamental part and function of every single living system from the subatomic world to the cosmic world. Once we understand this “parental law” of invisible, intelligent forces, called spirit, soul, and mind, we have the “keys” necessary for consciously participating in our own creation from a semi-conscious and self-aware state.

The first perception we need to fully embrace and realize by conceptualizing it as a working model is the fact that we are energetic beings in the most basic sense. Our soul and mind is completely invisible and not material in nature, and is what organizes and designs the material world as the means of creating our “self” as a material being. The mind and soul is fundamentally the same thing, and perform different functions in creating a unified experience of “itself”, not just as a body and specific personality, but also the reality of the self that provides the basis for “experiencing” itself. The relationship between the mind and soul correspond to the relationship between the self-conscious and subconscious aspects of the mind, and the right and left hemispheres of the brain. They form different functions in creating and animating the same thing.

Polarity is also a universal (fundamental) principle that operates synergistically on all levels of both the created world and the world of unformed potential, and is necessary in order to “create”. This polar relationship as complementary opposites of the same thing is demonstrated on every level of both the created and potential realm. The upper planes of reality, commonly referred to as spiritual, heaven, and God, are “creators”, and the lower plane of the material reality is “the created”. When we step into our true identity as divine spiritual beings we move from perceiving ourselves as a product of others and our life circumstances to being the one that’s doing the creating and always in the process of creating our “self” by how we utilize the conscious energy system of our mind guided by the sovereignty of our higher soul.

Our mind (Monad) is represented as an “invisible center” that expands and radiates out quite some distance from the center to produce a “sphere” (circle). The mind is often referred to as a “sphere of consciousness” that’s the “essence” of our soul as our “character”. Our soul is comprised of essence as “memory” that we formed from all of our life experiences. The Soul is actually self-creating, self-perpetuating, and self-sustaining as a higher divine being. Our body and the life of our body is the result of our own creation that we design and inhabit as a way of creating experiences of ourselves that we use to acquire and “build-up” certain types of memory as the expression of certain character traits. Whatever qualities and characteristics we “choose to embody and become”, determines what we create through the perception it forms and the behaviors that naturally ensue from it.

Our character forms all of our activities and behaviors and determines what type of things we naturally resonate with and engage in as our “deeds”. As we maintain a certain “state of mind” as our normal and consistent way of being, we’re constantly acting to generate and produce the corresponding reality of our state through our perception and how we think about things, while unconsciously employing the behaviors that “cause it”. Our state-of-mind as our mood “is” our vibratory frequency and has a pattern inherent in it along with a life-force energy that acts as an ordering mechanism, making it “causal” in nature. As we act to cause a certain type of event or activity to take place based on how we interact with everything around us energetically, producing a corresponding (like) effect of the same kind, and we then “absorb” the effect we created as our experience and shape it into a memory of our “self” and the “way life is”.

As we absorb and integrate our experience as an effect that we caused, it then becomes “causal” and produces our “internal model” as an equivalent effect. What we perceive as “complementary opposites” is actually formed out of extreme aspects of the same thing which, at some point, transform into each other. The electrical force that projects outward while still maintaining the magnetic aspect in a latent state, then undergoes a shift in state, and turns in a cyclical movement and becomes magnetic, returning to the center that it initially rose out of. All energy, which is the same thing as consciousness, appears to be dual or polar in nature, when it’s actually a single power that moves between two poles or boundaries as a “range of vibration” that forms a frequency. An easy way to understand this is to look at the extremes of “hot and cold”, which are really different degrees as temperatures of the same thing. By changing the temperature of a substance it both expands and dissipates becoming more subtle or it contracts and concentrates becoming dense and solid. Though we perceive electromagnetism as two different forces that produce different effects, it’s actually the “same force” in different states that perform different functions in organizing and constructing of the same thing. 

In order to truly grasp this concept we have to step fully into our identity and role as the “creator” of our life, rather than seeing ourselves as being created “by life”. We can’t get caught up in the content of what’s taking place and why, and instead step back and observe the actual process that’s taking place as an energetic expression and flow of consciousness. We’re not the content itself that makes up our reality, but the soul that’s “producing a reality” out of the content. We are the “causal force” in our own life creating experiences of our self as the means of knowing our self. We can only gain knowledge through experience. Anytime we use universal principles to form imaginary concepts, we gain a practical understanding of what’s actually operating just below the surface of outer appearances. The outer world of appearances is what’s commonly referred to as an “illusion” because it’s different for everyone perceiving them. We have a prevalent tendency to get caught up in the illusion of things and completely miss what’s really going on and what it is we’re doing from the subliminal energetic level of our mind.

This is the same thing we have a tendency to do when we meditate and we get caught up in the habitual thoughts themselves instead of recognizing the mind that’s giving rise to the thoughts and turning them into an imaginary reality. We usually get caught up in the nature of the interaction as a means of justifying our own actions in reaction to another, instead of realizing the actual process taking place. Anyone who has a tendency to be “reactive” is locked into the illusion of identifying with their lower nature as “being created” by others, instead of seeing themselves as the one who is creating themselves “through” the events of their life. However we position ourselves in our own life forms the basis for all of our decisions, whether they’re made unconsciously in an automated fashion or with full awareness in a deliberate and intentional manner.

Visualizing the Law of the Monad

The Monad is represented by a dot (invisible center) within a circle, in the same way it would be drawn using a compass. This geometric structure represents the idea that the outer circle is produced as the expansion and emanation of the center. The center is what we can think of as the “self” as the soul and personality housed within the body as the “mind” that produces its own reality as an expression that creates an experience of itself as a whole outer reality. The “sphere” represents reality as a dimension created by the soul through the matrix of the mind. What’s commonly referred to as “the fall” of man from a higher plane to the lower plane of formation, comes by moving into the plane of “knowledge”. We can only “know” anything (including ourselves) through “experience”. All knowledge is only acquired (integrated into our existing paradigm to update it) through direct experience that brings deeper realizations. We are all creative beings acquiring knowledge of ourselves through our ability to create our own experiences of our self.

Picture yourself as your mind which is a field of subtle energy that’s not only anchored to your body as it’s center or core, but also exists quite some distance away from you out into your environment. This is what’s called a “torus”, which is a living sphere of organized memory that’s subtle and electromagnetic in nature. It moves and circulates as a self-sustaining system that vibrates at a certain frequency. It’s electrical (masculine) properties expand and project outward quite some distance away from your body and then folds back on itself, contracting in a cyclical movement, and is drawn back into your body where it circulates around the axis of the subtle body and spinal column, as an “alternating current”, before being projected and transmitted outward again. The mind, which is represented by the element of “air” as the atmosphere, breathes and circulates energy as a means of feeding, sustaining, and transforming itself.

As the “electrical energy” of our vibration moves out and away from us and into our immediate environment, it acts to stimulate and awaken and bring out in an active state whatever is of the same nature (frequency) as we are. As it activates corresponding energy as qualities and traits by causing them to vibrate (resonate), they actively express to create a joint experience of the reality produced by the shared qualities. We then draw the energy back in and absorb it as our experience and integrate it into our center (paradigm) as “memory of our self”. As we create the reality of our consciousness by vibrating it, we gain a “sense of ourselves” through it, and identify with our own experiences, creating our self by way of them. Whatever energy we cultivate and put out as the means of creating our experiences, we draw back in and become in “essence”. This is represented by the golden rule which states “do unto others what you would have them do unto you”, because whatever it is you’re “doing” you’re actually doing to yourself. There’s really only one of us doing the actual creating.

Creating with Conscious Awareness

The Monad is considered the “parent principle” out of which all others systematically arise as a form of growth and development. Our state of mind is comprised of the qualities that make up our character and form our energetic frequency. The Law of Vibration, like the mind and soul which gives rise to it, is also 3-fold in nature as working principles that perform different functions in producing and maintaining the same thing. These principles are resonance, sympathetic induction, and coherence. We activate qualities in everything else by resonating with them, and “entering into them” becoming one with them energetically as the same quality, and begin vibrating in harmony with them by forming a joint reality as a co-creation formed out of the same character as shared qualities.

By subliminally entering into the energy field of another and influencing their vibration to match ours, we form a shared experience by cooperatively expressing the same qualities, and we form a new variation (specialized pattern) as a unique expression of the same kind. We then simultaneously draw the experience created back into our mind where it’s integrated and assimilated to update and modify our current memory, diversifying and expanding our range of expression to include it. We “build ourselves” through our own creations and what type of qualities we build into strengths (habits) as accumulated memory. Whatever qualities we embody as our mood is the ones we’re selecting and using to create ourselves with. We create ourselves through others and our various life circumstances and situations. Whatever state as an attitude and set of correlated behaviors we employ on a consistent basis, we develop as a natural part of our character, and it becomes an energetic part of our soul’s constitution. Our soul as our character is eternal in nature and is what transcends the personality of the body at death while forming the basis of our next life as a continuation within a new personality, set of relationships, and life conditions.

Once we understand this principle in practical terms we’re given the means for developing our “self” in a very deliberate way. Whatever qualities we strengthen and utilize in creating our life shapes our character as memories of our self-soul. Our character is determines how we think, feel, perceive, emote, and behave, and what type of life experiences we create as a result. Our life is created as the emanation of our character. While we’re all initially shaped by our conditioning to be a certain way (re-establish the preexisting condition as karma), we can take over our own creation as adults by deciding who we want to be and acquiring the skills for developing our own character by working with our own mental and emotional state. By cultivating the proper state of mind in a consistent fashion, we determine what qualities and traits we bring out in others and use as the means for creating our reality. This is why embodying certain qualities and ways of being are the central focus of all spiritual development and self-mastery. Our spiritual path as our life’s journey is how we shape ourselves consciously by stepping into our true identity as a divine being of a higher moral intelligence.

The Spiritual Path of Reverence

By embodying a feeling of reverence as our normal mental state (vibration), we “look through the eyes of reverence”, and connect with, and see in everything else only what “warrants” reverence. We have to embody and become one with whatever quality as a state of mind we want to use as the means of creating ourselves with through our perception of that same quality in everything else. Whatever we perceive in another we act to bring out in them. When we cultivate an attitude of only looking for and seeing what fills us with feelings of adoration, admiration, respect, and honor, we act as a catalyst for bringing those qualities out in everyone else while developing them in ourselves through the interaction that takes place.

As we create a reality as the expression of those qualities, we experience ourselves through those same qualities, while increasing and amplifying them, and we draw the experience back into our self where it’s integrated to alter our vibration as a memory of our self. By actively choosing which qualities and character traits to embody and use as the means of expressing through, we produce, multiply, accumulate, and buildup memories of that kind. We only transform ourselves through a process of accumulating memories that counteract and counterbalance other ones. Accumulated memories not only transform us internally, but also change how we act and live, and the type of story we tell with our life by how we conduct ourselves and the nature of our relationships.

All patterns are comprised of attributes and qualities that form characteristics which determine the form something takes on and how it functions and behaves as a result. By intentionally embodying the qualities we want to use in order to shape our character, we become the vessel for those qualities to express and create in the world. If we consistently maintain a feeling of inadequacy and inferiority, then we unknowingly display the feeling and behaviors that bring out those same feelings in everyone else, and we give our life-force to propagating more and more of the same feelings and eventually strengthen them into our life theme. If we’re judgmental and criticizing, then we act as a protagonist for bringing out in everyone else whatever there is to criticize, and we not only strengthen those traits in them, but in ourselves as well. “Cause” always produces an “effect” of an equal or greater nature. Cause is our energy flowing out into the world and onto others to produce an effect in them of the same kind, and we draw the effect as an experience back into us where we internalize and process it by harmoniously integrating it to form our “soul’s essence”.

We all have the ability to determine and regulate our own state of mind and develop our character in a deliberate and precise manner. All we have to do is decide to stay awake and aware in the present moment while recognizing what our mood and attitude is like, then deciding what we want it to be as the means of creating our life experiences in that moment. Once we consciously choose and intentionally embody the quality we desire to have more of, we act to regulate our own vibratory frequency.

As we maintain an awareness of our mood throughout the day, we can make whatever adjustments we need to whenever we realize we’ve lost our focus, become reactive or caught up in habitual thoughts, get distracted with meaningless things, and we can become the captain of our own ship. We can cultivate skill in becoming self-directed and self-determined. As we walk through life with a certain attitude and frame of mind we can notice how we affect people and influence situations, and how it is that we can act to shift their mood to match ours, and what type of interaction we produce as a result. We can become the leader in any situation we’re a part of, instead of being led through the mood of others and what seems like the random events of our life.   

As we produce an experience, we can become aware of how it makes us feel about ourselves, and how our life changes as a result. Embodying new qualities and ways of being may feel awkward at first, like anything that we’re not used to does, but the more we practice being that way the easier it gets and the more natural it becomes. If we practice regulating our state of mind consistently for a three to six week period, it becomes natural and we begin doing it in an automatic fashion. Once a quality and character trait becomes a natural part of our being, we no longer have to try or apply effort and discipline in order to maintain it. Once we’ve successfully integrated one quality to shape our character in an intentional manner, we can choose another one and continue to develop ourselves in whatever way we desire and become the type of person we admire and hold in high esteem.

Practicing Spiritual Knowledge as a means of Creating

       There always seem to be a fundamental disconnect between attaining spiritual knowledge in theoretical form and actually knowing how to bring it into practice in your everyday life not only as the means of creating with it, but also as the means of actually “learning it” through experience. We only actually “know” what we can do. We have to actually “earn” knowledge by living it. We acquire it by entering into an intimate relationship where we “become one with it” in mind and action. We only really know if something is true or not by applying it and seeing what the results are. When we study something as a theory, formed at best by our ability to conceptualize it as an internal experience, we create it in the same way we learned it, by memorizing someone else’s account and using it in place of our own.

      All spiritual growth and development only comes by way of intuitively applying principles in order to “create” in a personal and individual manner. When we move into higher forms of consciousness everything becomes about moving out of the group mind mentality of accepting truth as something you were taught rather than from the direct experience of it that brings deep insights and realizations. All higher knowledge exists as laws and principles which are processes and operations that can be interpreted any number of ways and applied effectively to any type of situation or circumstances to create in a predictable manner. Laws are what allow us to connect with and perceive the true nature of things regardless of what their outer appearance looks like or the specific elements involved.

       This individuality of higher knowledge is self-evident in the fact that nearly all spiritual texts are written in metaphors, analogies, symbolic ideas, and allegories that require intuition in order to interpret as a means of understanding the principles involved. However we interpret a symbolic idea is based on how we adapt it to our current collection of similar ideas, our level of scientific and philosophical knowledge, our level of maturity and experience, what stage of life we’re in, our cultural conditioning, and so on, so that every person forms a perception as their own creation that serves their growth in an ideal way.

       There are an infinite number of ways to perceive the same idea because it’s eternal in nature and not based on material elements or a specific location within space and time. The same principle can be applied to any situation in order to create in a unique yet consistent manner each time. So there’s no such thing as someone else knowing what’s true and right for you. Only you know truth through your ability to conceive of it and bring it into expression through actions of some kind. All allegories are simply describing situations where universal principles are playing out and all people and elements of the story are archetypal and metaphorical in nature.

      All “qualities of consciousness” have “planes of knowledge” associated with them that we only have access to by embodying and “becoming” that quality. All knowledge of a higher, conscious nature than the material plane of unconsciousness requires us to step fully into our individual, altruistic, sovereign nature and completely trust in our ability to “know” what’s true and therefore right for us through our own soul’s volition. We have to believe in ourselves and our ability to know through reason and self-realization. All principles playing out on the grand scale of the cosmos are also playing out and being reflected within us. Our soul is the “medium” and a kind of bridge or link that connects us to our higher self and requires us to choose our own ability to know without being taught or instructed by another. Anytime we’re looking for answers outside of ourselves, or wanting to somehow be told and guided on what to think or do, we’re making a very fundamental error and are only capable of acting as a receptacle for man-made knowledge of the lower, group mind.

Action is Required in Order to Know

       Some believe that you can simply imagine ideas and it’ll act the same as actually doing them. Yet they fail to recognize the basic principle involved in this idea, which is that our imagination is simply the way we communicate an idea to our subconscious by providing the pattern as a kind of template for producing as an actual reality that allows us to experience it. The subconscious understands the language of symbols and metaphors and is psychologically stimulated by symbolic ideas that we often don’t even recognize. We can only do what we can first imagine ourselves doing. We actually act to program our own subconscious with ideas we want it to create by developing them in detail by thinking about them in a concentrated manner.

       All knowledge that’s attained through experience as practice of some kind becomes a natural part of our mental paradigm which is constructed out of memory. It’s the experience that serves to integrate it forming an actual memory of it. Anything practiced consistently until it becomes habit and natural part of our nature and perception, is permanently retained as our “soul’s essence”. It becomes a natural part of our normal way of being and acting and becomes eternal in nature as a result. Knowledge that’s integrated as direct experience becomes our soul’s essence which transcends our physical death and identification with our body, forming our predisposition, temperament, and natural tendencies in all proceeding incarnations, whatever they may be.

       Only what has been practiced faithfully and made habitual as our “natural way of being” remains a permanent part of us, and whatever we only hold as an idea or theory as a form of memorization of someone else’s interpretation, that’s never actually brought into practice of some kind, dies with our body. Whatever was formed in us as a part of the group mind is “of” this plane and doesn’t transcend it after death. Only what’s created by us through our ability to reason, think for ourselves, and embody qualities that we use to produce our actions, is of a higher, more intelligent and creative plane, and acts to transcend the lower plane altogether. We only retain what we use to create ourselves through the habits we form.

       All spiritual knowledge is only attained by becoming one with the qualities associated to that plane and by bringing fundamental universal laws into practice within your daily life as the means of forming your lifestyle. We only acquire knowledge by forming the appropriate state of mind that makes us a channel for their expression, providing us with the means of creating ourselves to be like them. Whatever experiences we create by how we use our mind, shapes our identity, and our identity is our “I AM” of self-awareness. Our actions both reveal and define us. It’s how we’re being and what we do that demonstrates who we are in the true sense, not what we talk about or try to use as the means of creating an image of ourselves as being spiritual and therefore knowledgeable.

       We originally merge into ideas with our mind by imagining them as a working concept or type of reality. All true knowledge exists as universal principles that can be applied to any situation or set of circumstances to create in a predictable manner. Principles are universal because they exist as metaphors that are thematic in nature. It’s not the situation or story being used that’s the knowledge, but rather the principles that are forming and animating it as a creative process. Once we’re able to intuitively grasp the principles involved or that are being described in any body of knowledge, we have the means for being able to apply those principles in our daily life in a number of ways and through different types of processes. Principles aren’t specific to material conditions but are what acts to organize and produce those conditions and circumstances. They consist of archetypal ideas that form patterns that are living metaphors as symbolic ideas that can be applied indefinitely to any number of situations to create in a deliberate and fully conscious way.

Archetypes as Laws and Principles that Provide Tools for Personal Transformation

In order to gain an understanding of how archetypes work in our psychological make-up, we have to start by defining what an archetype is. An archetype is what’s used in the most primary sense to illustrate or represent natural principles and laws. An archetype represents a kind of prototype, universal template, or ideal that we use for creating in every aspect of our life. As multidimensional, multifaceted beings, our personality and psychological make-up is comprised of universal archetypes that we share with all of humanity, represented by the zodiac and the ancient gods of Mythology. An archetype as a principle is represented as an “idea” or “being” that has certain types of attributes, qualities and characteristics, that form its basic personality giving it a natural disposition, temperament, perspective and “type” or kind of behaviors that naturally lend themselves to telling a certain type of story as it’s “identity”. Our basic psychological make-up as our personality is formed by the twelve universal (everyone has them) archetypes of the zodiac as personality traits in varying degrees and aspects that are composed into a “formula” as our primary “state of consciousness”.  As we go out into the world and begin participating in co-creating reality, this state of consciousness as our personality acts to predetermine and form our “identity” as the roles we naturally cast ourselves in or take on, and the type of story we tell by how we express our character traits and live our life. In order to change the character traits that make up our personality and identity, we have to work by way of these same principles as archetypes by reformulating them. The ultimate form of transformation as self-development, doesn’t come by changing individual or select behaviors, habits, or tendencies, though it can be in the ordinary sense, but rather by working with attributes and qualities that form new characteristics. By evolving characteristics that form our personality and have natural behaviors inherent in them as a “way of being”, we naturally produce new experiences that give us a new and different “sense of ourselves”, that simultaneously produces a new kind of reality as the story we naturally begin telling through our newly acquired perceptions and behaviors. “Being” always produces “doing”, and doing always results in physical manifestation. To work through principles says that the way to change how something or someone functions and performs, and the reality they create through the story they naturally tell as a result, is to work with their character and nature to alter, modify and reformulate its inherent properties and elements. By adjusting and modifying the qualities one expresses through, we change the entire operation. So instead of trying to change one aspect within a whole, natural operation, often without ever identifying what attribute is ultimately causing it, you work instead to adjust the inner nature as their character, and let the changes that ensue from it naturally take place. Then evaluate them to determine if or what other attributes need to be adjusted, until it naturally acts to produce the change you want. All change ultimately comes in a natural and permanent manner by changing the character of the person forming the behaviors that you desire to change. All other methods may solve a specific application or instance, but the behavior and tendency itself will continue to play out in others ways. What’s referred to in Alchemy as the “chemical marriage”, comes through coupling, combining, and assimilation of its equal and complementary opposite. Transformation takes place by mingling, blending, and combining contradictory opposites to form a new whole. By returning what is fixed and dead to a fluid and growing state. When we assume habitual qualities that make up our character and nature, and fail to grow in the essential sense of our inner self, we become as dead matter, measured only by quantity and proportion. We stagnate and begin living a life of routine and dogma, performing the same rituals day after day in an automatic way, and begin living out of the same mindset telling ourselves the same story day in and day out. When we stop growing, learning, and becoming something new and different in each moment, we begin the process of withering and dying. All behaviors and habits are merely the expression of established and well-practiced qualities that make up our character. So the way to change a habit, specific behavior, or tendency, isn’t to work directly with it in the practical sense of breaking a pattern to form a new one, but rather by identifying what part of your nature is producing that behavior as a natural expression and working through the law of sympathy and antipathy to modify it. It’s only by changing our inner nature somehow that we change our outer expression which is what produces our experience of reality.

        Qualities exist as attributes that are polar in nature as complementary opposites that form extremes of each other, with a gradient scale between them as degrees. We seldom ever fall exclusively on one side or the other, but rather somewhere in between, and express in favor of one extreme or the other under different circumstances. Many behavioral tendencies come more as a dynamic and interactive combination of qualities that must be worked with as groups or complementary clusters rather than as singular in nature, although often what is spurned as a quality actually results from a “core or parent” quality, which, when transformed, changes all offspring produced by it systematically. For example, jealousy and envy, whose opposite is admiration and trust, may be the offspring of self-doubt, lack of confidence, and low self-worth, and until this is addressed and transformed, the jealousy won’t go away. At best it’ll be repressed and subdued or corrected (seemingly) in one situation, while still existing as a tendency and natural perception in any other situation that warrants it, because what’s “causing it” hasn’t been changed. Once self-worth has been transformed into a healthy state of confidence, self-love and admiration, the tendency towards jealousy in all areas dissipates and is no longer apart of personal awareness and feelings. In other words, the person no longer feels that way in situations that used to warrant a deep feeling of jealousy and envy. To breed confidence in place of being timid and feeling unsure of yourself requires working with believing in yourself, trusting yourself, and honoring your uniqueness. Just trying to correct the behavior itself by telling them (or yourself) to not be timid or afraid, or by making them feel bad somehow for being that way, not only doesn’t transform it, but can in fact compound and exaggerate it, making it even worse. Qualities as our inner nature and personality form an interactive model as a cluster of qualities that have been developed through an active and expressive state to produce our experiences. We form beliefs about and around ourselves and others through the active expression of innate qualities being brought out in us through the dynamics, conditions, and life situations we grew up in, that served to establish our initial personality as traits and characteristics we naturally possess and outwardly express in a fluent manner as adults.

       All of these active, well-developed qualities have their complementary opposites, which also exist within us in a latent state, and can be used in a strategic manner to transform them. We simply have to realize it, form a desire and intention to perfect ourselves, and use our will creatively to transform our character into new habits. We “become” whatever we form a habit of. By intentionally working to develop ourselves by embodying and acting out counteractive qualities, and practicing “being that way”, we transform and evolve our perceptions, how we “sense ourselves”, and how we feel about ourselves. For example, just by changing our posture from a slumped one to an erect one, back straight, head held up high, making eye contact, all characteristics of “confident behavior”, we actually feel more confident. As we feel more confident, we create an experience of ourselves as “being” confident, and we start acting that way more and more, until it becomes a natural part of who we are in the most ordinary sense. All qualities have a state-of-mind and physiological characteristics associated with them. By becoming an actor in our own life, so to speak, we can imagine the state-of-mind out of which confidence would be the result, and by employing the behaviors and postures that communicate and outwardly demonstrate confidence, and “become” confident. We can actively choose to embody that state and quality of being, and act it out as a means of expressing ourselves in some situation, as the basis for creating an experience of ourselves in that manner. If we feel we don’t know how to be, feel, and act confident, we can find someone that we consider confident and self-assured, study them to see what they’re attitude, frame of mind, physiology (the way they hold themselves, gestures, facial expressions, voice tone and quality, etc.), and how they act, then we can model them by “pretending” to be the same way. Just like when we were kids and we developed ourselves by pretending to be just like our favorite characters. This whole process of self-development is natural to us as children when we’re in a primary state of creating ourselves using our imagination, but we tend to lose this ability as we become adults. As adults, we’ve established patterns and instead of taking an attitude of “creating new memories”, we begin simply living out of the memories already created in a repetitive fashion, feeling and being the same way over and over, creating the same type of experiences in the present as in the past, and we stop growing as a result. While the subconscious mind, which forms our personality, is habitual in nature, working to create and behave in an automatic fashion based on memory as habits, it’s also passive and receptive in nature, lacking a will of its own, and can be directed by the conscious mind to employ new qualities, behave in new ways as the expression of those qualities, and form new memories that will become new habits as a natural way of being. We don’t always need to go through years of therapy in an attempt to try and resolve or understand our story about things and what happened to us, and why we became the way we are. Sometimes all we have to do is realize as adults we still have the ability to create ourselves in any way we want to by simply detaching from the past and our story about it, deciding what aspects of ourselves we want to grow and transform into something better and greater, set the intention to do so, then begin the work of practicing in a disciplined manner to become it.

       We can bring what’s in a fixed and established state back into a fluid and growing state. We can realize who we’ve become up to this point, and who we want to be instead, or in moving forward to continue the process of actively developing ourselves. We see ourselves and our life as a “work in progress” of continuous and never-ending growth. Not as “being” a certain way, but rather in a continuous state of “becoming”. We can decide what story we want to tell by how we live our life, and what “kind” of person we have to become in order to do that. We can move outside of the mindset that says we’re always determined by other people, by how they act and treat us, or by what situations we found ourselves in or acted unknowingly to create, and begin taking an attitude instead of being responsible for our own development and who we become by way of our own willful decisions and disciplined actions. We can disconnect from all the memories and illusions of the past, be present in the moment, and become aware of ourselves in terms of how and who we’re being, and “in that awareness”, actively choose how we’re going to be, regardless of others and what’s happening around us. We can detach from our emotional connection to others that keep us constantly affected by and responding to them, reside apart from them as our own person, and choose how we’re going to interact accordingly. We’re only affected by people because as children in our “formative years”, only our subconscious was fully developed and dominantly active and we were constantly taking in the suggestions and attitudes of others and using them to shape ourselves in relation with them. This tendency becomes established as a way of self-development, so that even when the self-conscious aspect of the mind develops to the point of being active and dominate as our awareness, which has the ability to judge and decide what to let in or keep out, we continue acting to develop in an unconscious manner. Once we develop a conscious mind, which separates us from our parents and others and gives us the ability to think for ourselves, discriminate and reason, and act based on choice and will to give suggestions to our own subconscious mind as a way of self-development instead of other-development, we acquire the ability to become self-determined. The problem is, by the time we’ve become adults it’s become a habit as an automatic process of stimulus – response, action – reaction, and we don’t realize that we now have a will and can act independent of others in determining our own psychological makeup. We can finally realize that who others are, how they’re being towards us, and what they think of us has nothing to do with us, unless we let it by engaging through a reactive, like-response. As soon as we realize this, break the unconscious emotional connection, and see ourselves as a part from others, where their behavior and attitude no longer produces a reaction in us, we step into our true power to decide in every moment who and how we’re going to be, then act it out producing an experience of ourselves as being that way.

Summary: All transformation comes as an “inside job”. It comes through transforming the qualities that make up our character that naturally produce all of our perceptions and behaviors as a natural way of being that serve to tell a story of some kind. We don’t transform by addressing specific behaviors, but rather by working with the personality traits and character that act to naturally produce them as a tendency. By changing our “core” or kernel, we change how it expresses outwardly and what it acts to create through behaviors and deeds of some sort. Archetypes are tools for transformation because they provide us with a dynamic system of what qualities and personality traits produce what type of behaviors that naturally perform a stylized operation as a thematic story-line. All qualities exist in polarity, with a wide range of degrees and variances in between, and can be modified by employing their opposite and contradictory aspect. All vibration as a pattern is altered by coupling with a similar, yet variable pattern of the same nature, where different degrees of the same quality are being expressed, that allows it to acquire and take on new attributes. We train and condition ourselves to new ways of being by modeling the qualities necessary until they become a natural part of us. Whatever we pretend to be, we become. Pretending and playacting is the key to personal transformation and developing your character in a natural and deliberate way. Dr. Linda Gadbois

Alchemy and the Process of Initiation – Transformation and Growth through Challenges and Ordeals

The ancient art known as “Alchemy” dealt with the idea of soul purification and self-creation through masterful use of the will. It works through Universal Laws that govern all of the material world as a primary form of mind-over-matter, or the mind’s ability to willfully direct the behaviors of the body (subconscious) and determine what type of energies as states of consciousness we take on, become one with, and bring into expression as a way of creating ourselves by way of them. It works through the same laws that govern the chemistry of the body, where, when two or more substances are combined, they form a chemical reaction as biological processes of transformation. All change and transmutation comes from new combinations of some kind that form new relationships as a unique variable that alters it from its original state.

The alchemical process acts first to “purify” the substance (soul) to be transformed through various forms of changing the solution by filtering and separation, that identify and remove all impurities acquired through previous combinations and amalgamations, returning it to its virgin state. This process takes repeated steps of breaking down existing conditions and established patterns as active qualities, refining them through a process of distillation, and removing all corrupt aspects as weaknesses, vices, and vulnerabilities. Once returned to its original state, the true aspects of its character can then fully express and be developed into strengths as the means of true self-creation that comes from self-awareness, self-knowledge, and intentional actions and deeds. We can then act “on ourselves” to develop ourselves in very distinct ways by choosing what qualities we want to intentionally embody, become one with, and bring into expression as a way of apprehending those qualities and developing our character to include them.

       The Law of the Tetragrammaton or Tetrad (4), demonstrates this process and method of “becoming” through the Dyad (Vesica Pisces) as the blending together of two energy fields, joined at the center, where outside energies serve to stimulate and awaken those same energies in us, and together in the overlapping area, form an interference pattern as the reconfiguration of that pattern in both to form a new variation. This new variation of the same quality and idea, births the Triad as its offspring as an inner or imagined idea that provides the subconscious pattern for producing its outer equivalent as a projection or reflection, birthing its correspondence as an outer expression or experience of reality, represented by the Tetrad.

This same principle is demonstrated in the most primary law of all, the Law of Vibration, which states that whenever we vibrate in harmony with something else, we act to magnetically draw it into us through sympathetic induction, blending with it, and both of our complementary, yet variable vibrations influence each other and begin vibrating in-sync, forming coherence as a new vibratory rate that together forms a new pattern. This law forms the very foundation as a guided process for not only realizing “how” we’re being shaped all the time by whatever we associate and interact with energetically, but for how to engage in and use that same process intentionally as a means of developing ourselves.

The same process of returning a solid substance to a fluid state, purifying it by breaking down and dissolving all impurities and corruption, then reforming it through new combinations, occurs naturally in life anytime we’re faced with challenges, ordeals, major life crisis, and extreme forms of hardship and loss, where we’re forced to reevaluate our life and values, and embrace our identity with a full sense of awareness. It’s easy to see that the only time we change or grow in some way, is when we have to in order to overcome or negotiate a new situation that presents a problem or unfamiliar territory. It’s only when we’re taken out of our comfort zone, our ordinary conditions, circumstances, and situations that we’ve become accustomed to, and thrown into brand new, unexpected situations that we’re forced to respond by acting in a new and deliberate way. Where we go through the process in our mind of not knowing what to do, no previous experience or memory to draw off of or repeat, and we go through a decision process that requires us to willfully act it out, usually going against our own natural and habitual tendencies. Only in these moments are we truly self-creating in a fully aware manner. We’re initiating and producing our own reality that brings us into a new feeling and sense of ourselves. We embody qualities that we’ve never really expressed or developed before, and they transform us as a result. While in these moments, we’re back into a position, often for the first time as an adult, of having to make conscious decisions in every instance of what we’re going to do, how we’re going to be, and what we’re going to act intentionally to create.

        The process of initiation in the ancient mysteries, prepared the initiate by putting them in extremely challenging situations that were designed to invoke extreme fear and a deep sense of insecurity, which revealed their will to either give-up or give-in, or to persevere and push through difficulties, developing great mental fortitude through the process. The object was to not only become fearless, but to also be able to remain calm, highly focused, clear minded, and confident in extreme situations of all kinds. This came through the ability to not allow the energy challenging you to enter into your sphere of consciousness and alter your state of mind to match and be “like it”. This is what you might call a form of reverse engineering of the initial process of alteration through “combining and coupling” represented by the Dyad. In this process you deflect the energy, keeping it outside of you, refrain from reacting to it in any manner while staying centered and grounded internally, and in doing so, you neutralize the energy and act instead to influence and direct it through your mental projections and actions.

All of life evolves out of various combinations as the relationships of complementary opposites that act on each other to transform each other to be more alike. Every person or being that we meet or interact with, is acting naturally just through the nature of the interaction to make us like them, and we act to make them like us. This is what all relationships are, a natural method of transformation through adaptation and modification that (re)forms a new whole as a variation. This process is always going on between us and everything around us all the time at the subconscious, unaware level of the mind. We are constantly absorbing, integrating, assimilating, and becoming “like” the energy around us as a basic form of evolution that keeps us in the same state and condition as the environment we exist in, function as a part of, and have to survive in. Once we fully understand this law and fact, we have the tools necessary to work by way of that same law to consciously direct and influence the operation.

All energy is a form of consciousness that exists as “qualities” and feelings that naturally produce certain types of thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. The spiritual-energetic world exists in a parallel dimension to the physical as a hierarchical structure. Whatever exists on a “lower plane” is fully contained within the higher plane as its foundation. The higher plane, which contains the entire lower plane, is what acts to govern and sustain that plane. The invisible plane of energy, which is consciousness, is what shapes matter as essence into form through imagined thoughts. An idea introduced into the mind as a frequency or feeling, stimulates and initiates a thought process that forms it into an image of some kind as a reality in the mind’s eye (3rd eye), that’s further developed and evolved through a narration as internal dialogue. The entire physical, manifest world is produced and animated by consciousness as thought, intention, and imagination. And it’s through this same process, by working with the laws of the higher plane governing the lower plane that we direct and work with the energies of the lower plane.

       Once we return to a virgin state through the process of being broke down through constant challenges and crisis, where all illusions that prevented us from seeing ourselves and life as it really is dissolve, revealing only what’s real and eternal and unchangeable, we’re in the position to not only take over control of our own development, but can develop the necessary capacities of the mind that prevent us from being influenced, altered, and corrupted by others. All energy as states that produce emotional realities can be directed and brought into a submissive state by the will. We can control and regulate all energy within our own mental sphere (immediate surroundings) by exercising our will to direct it. This is not the same thing as “imposing our will on others” in an attempt to control and influence them to think, feel, and behave in a certain way, but rather to exercise full dominion over ourselves and our own mind and soul. Alchemy doesn’t concern itself with the idea or need to somehow change others, but only with the mastery necessary to become fully self-determined and self-controlled. The best way we have of influencing others is by controlling our own state and behaviors in how we interact with them, which influences them to “match us”.

Once we realize that our mind exists as a spherical field of energy that not only permeates and surrounds our body, encapsulating it, but also extends out into the environment around us quite some distance, and is always mingling with and taking on the energy of everything else, we can begin acting deliberately to regulate our energy field by using our will and imagination to determine what we allow in to become a part of us, and what we keep out or deflect, so it doesn’t affect or alter us. If we learn how to tune into the energy in any situation and become aware of how it interacts with us to transform us through resonance, we can learn how to “sense it” by feeling it while imagining its quality, motives, and behavior, while keeping it “outside of us”. We can then realize that people who are willfully projecting through some form of intensity, and those who live out of and are always expressing and projecting strong emotions of some sort, can only “enter into us” and infect us, becoming a part of our mind, if we choose to let them.

Energetic interactions take place naturally at the subconscious level, where, even though we realize how strongly we’re affected by them, we don’t realize what’s actually going on in the objective sense. We don’t realize that by becoming aware of what operates at the unconscious level, we can learn how to work with it consciously (with awareness). We can imagine an invisible barrier around us as the outer edge of our mental sphere where ideas and emotions being projected at us by others are allowed to reflect and “spread out” so we can see them as if “looking through a transparent image”, where we can “read them accurately” while preventing them from entering our mind and altering our state accordingly. By practicing this, we can remain calm, centered, and unaffected while in the midst of extremes and intensity of any kind. By remaining neutral in the presence of projected emotions we act to neutralize and diffuse them. But most importantly, we exercise the ability to regulate our own mind and body. This is a key ability of vital importance in terms of intentional self-creation.

        In this same manner we can consciously choose energy that we do want to blend with and become one with as a means of intentionally acquiring the same qualities. While we tend to use terms like “acquire”, “apprehend”, or” get”, to describe the energy and consciousness we embody as a means of developing qualities in ourselves, the fact is we don’t ever “get energy” as qualities “from” something else outside of us, but they act instead, through resonance, to “awaken” and bring into an active state those same qualities that are already “in” us. We then develop them through repetitive expression to become a prominent part of our character. Anything that we consistently develop through expression and interaction of some sort becomes a habit as second nature, which means we begin doing it naturally in an automatic fashion without direct awareness, having to think about it, or exerting intentional effort.

This same process of union as combining and coupling with someone or something else as the natural means of transforming and growing, is represented in what’s called the “chemical marriage” of Alchemy, as the relationship between the active and passive forces of the same mind and soul, and the conscious minds ability to direct, guide, and create by way of the subconscious mind as a unified and harmonious act. It’s learning how to make an adjustment through an understanding of sympathy and antipathy, attraction and repulsion, magnetizing and projecting. By learning how to use our own personal will to seed and work to create through our subconscious, we create both ourselves and our reality in an intentional and purposeful manner.

       Likewise, the burning away of impurities as character flaws, unconscious complexes and tendencies, incorrect evaluations and calculations, or bad habits we developed as unconscious conditioning, we can resolve our bad (self-destructive) karma and create a more positive and beneficial form of karma. Redemption comes by first bringing what’s operating in our life unconsciously into conscious awareness where we can not only see what we’re doing and why, but we can also begin working with it consciously to resolve it. All manifestations produced by actions can be cancelled out and brought back into a balanced state by equalizing opposites. It’s only by realizing and owning our own part in things that we see clearly what we’re doing in any situation that acting to co-create it, whether passively or actively, that we can willfully change our own perceptions and behaviors. It’s by counteracting an idea that we transform it by reformulating it, bringing what’s out of balance (emphasized) and being done unconsciously back into balance through awareness that brings realization. The realization alone is what acts to dissolve and transform the illusion. To redeem ourselves from an attitude and the actions that result from it, is to form and embody the opposite attitude and action, and repeat it consistently until it becomes automatic and something that we do without thinking about it. We can only be transformed and evolved by what becomes a habit as an essential part of our nature (through reprogramming our subconscious).

Those of us who came into this life with many difficulties, challenges, and ordeals to overcome, are naturally walked through a process of initiation as soul purification, often without realizing it. Others intentionally choose a hard life because there’s a desire in them to meet and overcome difficulties. Still others refuse to compromise their dignity in a world that teaches conformity at the cost of morality, and in doing so, welcome the consequences of integrity, which can often seem brutal. All growth and development, in the sense of being the soul’s only true goal and purpose in life, is considered an act of love from a higher, spiritual perspective. It’s only when we’re challenged and overwhelmed and we reign as victor, that we’re exalted. The greater our fall, the more exalted our rising. It’s only when we push through tremendous odds, and when faced with devastation and wrought with unimaginable grief, in those darkest moments when we’re forced to reach down into our unknown depths of our self to find our true source of light and power that we ascend to the higher rungs by virtue of our own volition.

The Importance of Working with an Ideal – Creating a Vision for Your Ultimate Development

creating Cameran Grey

        While many of us have been trained to the idea of creating a vision for our life in terms of lifestyle, professional career, relationships, health, etc., few of us embrace the importance of forming an “ideal” of ourselves in terms of self-development or spiritual realization. Yet, the interesting fact that many fail to realize is that all other goals as activities or accomplishments of our life, depend on our personal development for achieving in a natural and automatic fashion. Our “life” is created out of our “self”. We are the creators of our life as a fundamental form of self-expression. By changing ourselves and acquiring new abilities, all other areas of our life change accordingly. If we try to change “areas of our life” without changing the part of ourselves that are naturally producing it, we struggle, become frustrated, and usually fail in the ultimate sense, often, without ever knowing why.

Another “fluffy comment” that’s popular these days is the idea that you’re “perfect just the way you are”. This idea is usually addressing various forms of judgment from other people, or self-esteem issues around “not being good enough”. Yet self-perfection, as a personal “ideal”, which is the ultimate and only real spiritual goal, is something we not only decide for ourselves, but are also fully responsible for executing. Nobody can develop us for us (intentionally), just as no one can heal us. All healing and self-growth is something only we can do for ourselves by how we use our mind to control our body, our behaviors, and activities that we naturally engage in. In much the same way we create a vision as an ultimate outcome, achieved through systematic steps and stages as goals necessary for achieving the outcome, we create an “ideal” of ourselves as “being the best we can be”, then aspire towards it by intentionally developing latent potential, healing emotional and psychological issues that prevent it, or being the way we want to be in terms of character and quality of consciousness.

expanding energy

Perfection can be thought of as taking an idea, and turning it into the ultimate form of that idea as an “ideal”. Perfection is whatever perfect means to us. No one else can tell us what perfection means, or what qualities we need to develop in order to be perfect. Perfection is a standard or quality of being. Our concept of self-perfection as our “ideal self”, is something that we must soul search in order to realize, then want it bad enough to devote ourselves to doing what it takes to become it. Our personal ideal has nothing to do with material possessions, wealth, status, or creating a self image that we portray to the world as a false image of how we’d like to be seen by others, but rather as an essential part of our true nature that’s developed internally, that becomes a natural part of our being. It comes by developing qualities that evolve our character to a higher level of awareness and self-control, which forms the foundation necessary for a whole series of positive changes to take place automatically as the natural offspring of new qualities of consciousness. The most natural way to create in all areas of our life, is to start by consciously creating our “self”. Out of our self, comes everything else in an effortless and spontaneous way.

In many of the spiritual traditions, which are all focused on self-development from a moral perspective, they provide a system of understanding qualities of consciousness as possessing opposite yet complementary aspects of each other as vices and virtues. Vices are poor character traits that form weakness that lead to various forms of addictions and moral degradation, and are predominantly destructive in nature. Virtues are positive, opposite qualities of vices, which provide the means for transforming them. Virtues are qualities of higher levels of consciousness that are strengths, lead to growth and nourishment, and naturally produce very positive and constructive results in all areas of your life. Virtues are loving and unselfish in nature, and act naturally to produce a sense of harmony, pervading contentment, and happiness not only for ourselves, but for everyone involved. Virtues expand our awareness and increase our ability to both give and receive higher forms of knowledge and unconditional love.

calculation

Anytime we’re creating, we have to start with a vision of the desired outcome as an experience, so we know what the process for creating it will be. Though your ultimate vision for your ideal self may take many steps to accomplish, it’s important that you work on only one step at a time, and don’t start the next step until that one is well established and a part of your natural way of being (built into your subconscious). One of the ways we set ourselves up for failure, is by trying to take on too many things at one time creating a feeling of being overwhelmed and therefore struggling, or by scattering our energy in too many directions by trying to do too much all at once. Every acquisition of a new quality requires complete concentration and devoted practice over an extended period of time in order to “build it into the muscle”, where it becomes a natural way of being that no longer requires conscious effort.

Even with concentrated effort and a strong sense of discipline to stay with a task over a long period of time, you’ll relapse many times throughout the day by falling into habitual patterns that are well established and forgetting what you’re doing. This is natural, and when you realize you’re off task, simply re-center (remind) yourself in your desired intention, refocus your mind and adjust your mood, and continuing practicing. Repeatedly bring yourself back anytime you forget, and continue practicing without getting discouraged, and the new quality and behavior associated with it will begin taking hold, and you’ll be able to stay focused for longer and longer periods of time. All forms of intentional creation come from your ability to concentrate your efforts and stay focused on what it is you’re creating.

The approximate time for breaking one habit by replacing it with another, is forty days, or six weeks. The approximate time for simply establishing a new habit that doesn’t involve breaking an old one, is three weeks (half the time), or twenty one days, and it’s fully established (permanent) in six weeks. This gives you an idea of the amount of time you should plan on dedicating to each step of your development. You’ll also develop the ability to concentrate and stay with something for long periods of time, commit to devotional practice, and develop the patience it takes to accomplish a major feat (which a behavioral change is). You can consider your goal accomplished when you become that way automatically, and no longer have to think about it, or put conscious effort into it. All behaviors are “learned and conditioned” (trained), and likewise, can be unlearned and reconditioned. Our initial development was a predominately unconscious process, and all we’re doing here is making it a fully conscious process undertaken with a deliberate and determined attitude.

In order to realize what your ideal is, simply allow yourself to realize that an idea of who you really are, and how you’d like to be already exists inside of you as the qualities, talents, natural gifts, and interests that you naturally possess. No matter what stage of your life you’re at, you’ve only brought a small portion of your “self” into expression, while the greater part of yourself as “potential” remains dormant inside of you. Parts of you may have been developed in a negative way through your initial conditioning, which you can transform into its positive opposite quality. For example, fear and cowardice (often displayed through anger or defensiveness), can be transformed by embodying courage and bravery in its place. Hatred and a sense of animosity, can be transformed with love and compassion. Whatever is the opposite quality is what’s used to transform an existing “bad quality” or “destructive tendency”. Every “quality”, which has a behavior inherent in it, exists in a dual state of complementary opposites (sympathy and antipathy) as a positive or negative expression of the same quality of consciousness. Just as “hot and cold” are degrees of the same thing, and light and dark are degrees of the same thing, love and hate, fear and courage, humility and confidence, are all degrees of the same thing, and its opposite can be used to transform it by degrees. In order to begin practicing, start with smaller things or ideas that don’t produce a strong emotional charge or aren’t intense in nature, and are therefore easier to manage, and gradually work your way up to ideas that trigger you emotionally causing reactive behaviors.

Our state-of-mind (quality of consciousness) is created by 3 aspects that are always in-sync with each other. These three aspects are what we focus on, what we tell ourselves about what we’re focused on that makes it mean something, and what we’re doing with our body. Our physiology is a direct reflection of our state-of-mind as our quality of consciousness that we’re employing at any given moment. If you can’t control your attention and thoughts, you can learn to control your body and how you’re behaving instead. We can employ a quality by modeling the behavior associated with it. Just like when we were kids, we play acted and pretended to be “like” our favorite characters and role models, we utilize the same techniques as adults. Pretend like you’re an actor acting out a certain character within a specific role.

Cosmic_creativity

If you want to develop confidence, for example, find someone that you consider confident and watch and study them. What is it that they’re doing that makes them “confident”? What’s their posture like, their attitude, body language, and how do they hold themselves? How do they speak, the tone, speed or rate, and emphasis? What are their facial expressions, demeanor, and idiosyncrasies? How do they dress? Study them, elicit their strategy, and then imitate the same way of being. Practice until you feel comfortable with it and incorporate your own style into it. Then practice being that way in general. Practice it as a normal way of being in all areas of your life. Notice that when you change how you’re acting, that you experience yourself in new ways. You feel different and sense yourself in a different way. Step into the feeling and embrace it with a new level of awareness. Allow yourself to kind of fall in love with how your feeling and being. Get off on it. Allow yourself to feel empowered by it, not in an arrogant or conceited way, but in an expressive, uninhibited and expansive way. Notice the freedom it allows and new levels of self-expression that are very powerful in terms of not only the freedom you feel, but the response you get from others who are forming an impression of you and admiring you. Be an actor in your own life, and take it all in. After a while, it’ll become natural and normal.

In order to acquire a quality by practicing and becoming it in mind and body, we have to have a good enough idea of what that quality is like in terms of attitude, emotions, demeanor and behaviors so that we can practice being that way by imitating it. Don’t worry that you’ll be “copying somebody”, because the process of imitating is what allows your own style to come forth, you simply need a starting point as a kind of template for producing it. Once you begin practicing, you’ll come into yourself in terms of being that way, and you’ll produce your own unique version of it. We need a channel of expression in order to “find” our own style for doing things. Your style for “being” exists within you like your fingerprint or signature, and simply needs to be awakened and given a channel for outward expression, until you start feeling comfortable and natural being that way. Keep in mind, you always feel a bit (or a lot) awkward and out of place, or “not yourself” at first, because it’s new and you’re not used to it. But just keep practicing as if you’re an actor in the “play of your life”, and after awhile it’ll start feeling completely natural to you, and you’ll begin automatically “feeling” that way, and perceiving life from that perspective. All it takes is dedicated practice and a spirit of renewal and self-realization by bringing forth parts of yourself that up to this point in your life, you’ve never really experienced before!

What is the “Mind?”

souls_sphere_

There’s a tendency to refer to what we call the mind as being equivalent to the brain, or the heart, or some invisible undefined term that encompasses them both. If we look at the mind through the concept of Spiritual Sciences and the Quantum model of Subtle energy, we can realize the mind as an energy field that exists in a hierarchical form as smaller, individual minds that accompany all conscious sentient beings while expanding in range and magnitude to larger mind-fields that can reach universal proportions. It’s a series of mind-fields that are nested within greater fields, which like holograms, while varying in size and magnitude, are all of the same nature and operate according to the same sets of creative Laws.

 

The mind of the individual is the energy field that surrounds and envelopes the body in an egg-like essence that we commonly call the aura or electromagnetic field that’s imbued with distinct attributes and qualities that determine how the mind functions at an individual level. It’s the essence as what we refer to as electrified plasma as resonance that informs and animates the body, imbuing it with analogous characteristics referred to as the personality, which becomes the foundation for the identity it takes on through various levels of story-telling birthed as a natural evolutionary growth process. It develops and “becomes” in stages that are the enactment and development of different inherent aspects of the same essence in a sequential manner that first establishes the foundation out of which a spontaneous growth process as actualization takes place of its own volition.

Dreaming

All of life operates as Laws that evolve through a consistent growth process of becoming fully actualized. This natural growth process is a form of unfolding in a hierarchical fashion, where one phase sets the basis out of which the next is indicated and spontaneously emerges in what seems like an effortless movement. The lower (initial) is the foundation for the higher. Just as our childhood development determines the type of adults we become. They are dependent on each other and operate independently of each other in an interdependent fashion. These planes of existence as hierarchies are referred to as kingdoms or worlds, whole planes nested within greater planes as a unified reality that are ecological. Different aspects that perform different functions yet are of the same entity as a whole interdependent system that expresses by generating a coherent reality.

 

While we can separate and analyze each aspect in order to understand the laws that govern their operation, we must always perceive it in synthesis as being a fundamental part of a holistic operation. Each part has a specialization that’s a crucial part of a whole function. It operates as parts or aspects within a greater mind, just as the individual mind operates as parts of the greater family/group mind, community mind, national/cultural mind, and ultimately universal mind.

3 selves

So the mind as viewed from the perspective of Spiritual Sciences as Subtle energy, can be thought of as individual consciousness that is self-aware, self-expressing, and self-creating all at the same time. A single thought process or act creates in a ripple fashion of expanding and including greater mind-fields, which serves to reinterpret them according to the same mind which perceives them to be of the same nature and likeness in terms of projecting our qualities, characteristics, preferences and tendencies onto them, seeing (perceiving) in them only what matches (forms correspondences) us in terms of our paradigm or vibratory frequency.

 

Our mind is a conscious field of energy as our ‘self’ that’s also the perceptual lens we look through in order to perceive everything else. Qualities and characteristics in another that are of the same nature as ours, form resonance with us, causing a reaction of some sort that stimulates us inwardly. They stand out as what we notice, give attention to, and reshape by thinking about them to form a perception of them that’s actually a correspondence to us. The creative ability of the mind is to regenerate itself as a basic means of expression. Perception itself is a form of interpretation that modifies everything as a vibrational match to ourselves in terms of perceiving them through our mental/emotional filters that conforms them to our dominant tendencies as thematic dynamics or prevalent and ongoing story-lines that we mold them into in a way that makes sense. The story we tell about them is the translation that reforms them to be like us in some way. We only see in others what first exists in us, in what is often a hidden or unknown aspect of ourselves.

Torus shape

Just as the Universal mind exists in a multitude of fragmentation’s as fractal patterns that are smaller minds of the same nature, our own mind exist in three basic aspects that have specialized functions known as the higher-self, the subconscious and conscious mind. The Higher-self is the greater mind-field which transcends into higher-dimensions of pure consciousness, while the subconscious is the body/instinctual (heart) consciousness, and the conscious mind is the brain/sensory consciousness. The Higher-self is what we commonly call the spirit-soul, the subconscious our basic personality, and the brain the creative function that forms self-awareness through it’s identity with the external world that ultimately births the ego as a result, which is the aspect of our identity that’s based on the physical realm of possessions and position, that are ultimately false in nature because they are dependent on external means in order to create a image of itself in relationship with it that are temporary and illusory in nature. All aspects of the mind form a step-down process of conscious energy creating experiences of itself in the physical realm. It’s our inner nature that forms our personality that automatically expresses through our behavior, while the conscious mind creates illusions of itself that often tell a different story from the one that they naturally demonstrate through automatic behavior that they are seemingly unaware of, and therefore assume others are fooled by the same false image that they have created as a means of re-representing themselves to be what they wish they were, instead of what they actually are. They then make the basic assumption that others perceive their false image as well, when in reality, others are only seeing what matches their paradigm as their perceptual lens or the actual behavior a person demonstrates on an ongoing basis.

Likewise, each vital organ within the body generates an electromagnetic field that has its own level of consciousness and associated functions, which operate as a part of a greater whole. Every single entity pairs off in dual aspects that mimic the electro-magnetic effect of mitosis as regeneration that multiplies in pairs of itself. The mind operates according to the same natural laws that govern all living systems. Duality and multiplicity is the fundamental nature of unity. Just as the body is comprised of billions of cells that all contain the same DNA for structuring and functions, that begin as one then divide and multiply in pairs, while migrating to different locations playing out different roles within the same body which operates as a greater single entity that’s an enclosed system.

 

Our primary consciousness doesn’t perceive the individual cells that make up our body, but only perceives itself as a whole body with a personality and identity that always perceives the world in terms of stories that play out in its mind and imagination and the feeling sensations that stimulate it from within as bodily sensations that form corresponding thoughts and emotions as a result. There’s a constant chain-reaction as a chain-of-association going on all the time, all prompted by an electrical impulse of some sort that comes from invisible forces that surround and interact with us on a constant and ongoing basis. Which ones influence us in lesser or greater proportions are based on the quality of consciousness which forms an equivalent as a vibratory frequency that not only tunes us into the thoughts and emotions prevalent on that plane that are of the same nature, but also determine what we form resonance with as the fundamental component for forming thematic realities that are of a congruent nature. Our energetic frequency as our mind-field determines what we notice in the objective outer world, where we place our attention, and how we reinterpret it as a means of using it as the basic components for telling the same type of stories that we always tell about others and the external world as an expression of our selves.

Reality in itself as objective, is a perception and projection of the larger Universal mind (original creation), while our subjective reality is a personal creation of our own making that creates our ‘self’ as an expression of ourselves. All perception is ultimately a form of fundamental projection that restructures it through vibratory resonance that shapes it into a new pattern as a variation that’s a co-creation of us, the individual mind, with the greater, universal mind, forming a unified realty that’s unique to us as created by us. The Universal as absolute remains the same and is neutral in nature, allowing us the ability to co-create a separate reality by how we infuse it with meaning of some sort that shapes it into a story of some kind. That story is our signature and is always composed as a reflection of our inherent style. It always has the same theme and style of story-telling, not only in terms of the story itself, but also in terms of ‘how’ we tell it.

Learning to become an Excellent Communicator – Self-Expression as Performance

performance

Knowledge originated as the “Arts and Sciences” in what most see as contrary ideas that are in reality extensions of each other. Knowledge as science can be thought of as an idea in theoretical form that can only be proved through experimentation or by applying it at the practical level to create living phenomena out of it as an experience of it. The application comes as a form of communication where we become the “channel” or “vehicle” through which the idea comes into physical reality by way of us. We act in some way by applying the idea to our life, and “act it out” or “perform it”. Because our method of application and style of performing is unique to us based on our personality, “how” we do it becomes a form of self-expression, where the science applied becomes an art-form.

 
Many of you may have seen the “communication pie” that reveals the components of communication as being 7% based on the words being used, 38% being the tone or quality of your voice in terms of “how” we say it, and 55% of the communication comes through our physiology as what we’re expressing by how we’re being. Naturally, many of the experts want to take this in a literal manner and begin breaking apart a whole expression into “body-language” as categories and labels in a way that can be standardized and therefore taught in a methodical manner, yet, what this is actually showing us is that we actually communicate by expressing with our whole being. Communication is a full body transmission that simultaneously reveals the inner state of the person communicating, while also revealing their mental paradigm that forms their unique perception and interpretive style. What this shows us is that we can never really hide how we’re feeling. Our attitude forms the greater part of our communication. What we value, believe, and have a preference for shapes our communication in subtle ways that while they may not be readily recognized in our attempt to conceal them, they are still fully conveyed in our energy, which is felt by others.

 
Communication is intuitive and being done all the time through our “presence”, regardless of whether or not we’re talking. People can sense our energy as our mental atmosphere, read our emotions being reflected in our body postures, gestures, and facial expressions, as well as biological processes such as flushing of the skin, tension in the lips, dilated pupils, shakiness in our voice, and so on. We also communicate in a basic sense by how we present ourselves, through our personal grooming, style, wardrobe, jewelry, etc. We create an image of ourselves that give people an impression of “who” and “how” we are, and what kind of person we are. To take up the study of body language that turns it into a mechanical, systematized process of categorizing and labeling specific postures and gestures as meaning this or that and applied to everyone equally, is like buying a book on “dream interpretation” that gives a universal interpretation of certain objects as if they mean the same thing to everybody, when in fact, nothing could be further from the truth. The message in the communication expresses not only the idea being communicated, but also the person doing the communicating. We can tell how they feel about what they’re communicating, what their perspective is, and whether they’re being congruent in terms of what they’re communicating being contradictory to how they actually feel. Whether they’re creating an illusion and lying, or whether or not they believe what they’re saying, and saying it out of honesty. What we’re doing with our body always matches our internal state. Always.

 
This gives us the tools we need for becoming excellent communicators by becoming aware of how we’re being as we communicate. By realizing that in order to communicate effectively, we have to first form the proper state or mood out of which we communicate, knowing it’s going to be the greater part of the communication. Cultivating the proper attitude through which we communicate is critical to the message or idea being communicated. Becoming aware of how we accentuate our voice quality through our tone, speed and hesitations as a form of timing, the rhythm of talking, what and how we emphasize words, what we’re doing with our body, our facial expressions, and gestures by how we use our hands, controlling the look in our eyes, and so on.


The basic dynamic always going on as the basis for our communication, is that whatever mood or emotion we’re embodying and expressing through, we stimulate that same emotion in others, calling it forth in response to us as the “connection” or “stream of communication” as an interactive flow of energy. We connect to others and the external world through feelings and emotions. Emotions connect us to things outside of ourselves that brings what’s inside, outside, and vice verse as a correspondence. Our action stimulates an equal reaction of the same emotional quality. How we act towards others by how we’re being, determines how they act towards us in a natural response to us. This is a fundamental form of “cause and effect”.

 
So all communication is in fact a “performance” where the words being employed are only a minute part of what’s actually being conveyed. To become an excellent communicator, you need to become an excellent performer. You take an attitude of expressing ideas by “embodying them”, creating the proper mood necessary for stimulating the same feeling-mood in whomever you’re communicating with. You do this by asking yourself, what feeling is necessary for the expression of this idea within the conditions and circumstances it’s being used to create? What is the purpose of the communication, and what effect or behavior is it designed to create? What emotion will give the proper emphasis and elicit the desired response as an outcome? Based on what you’re communicating and what result or course of action it’s meant to set in motion, what state do you need to cultivate in order to become the proper channel for expressing the idea that will elicit the same state in another? What part of the person’s imagination do you want to touch on through the nature of the communication, and what seed will the communication plant as a fertile idea in their mind that they will continue to grow through the emotion connected to it that it was delivered through, long after the communication is done?

emotional expressions

To plant a seed as a thought to be grown in the mind of another, we match the idea with the emotion. The emotion determines in what way the idea will be developed, and what kind of reality they will create out of it as a result. When inspiring and passionate emotions are coupled with an idea, it’s developed in a very positive way as the means for expressing the emotion through the idea. When negative emotions are applied to the same idea, it’s developed in a way that expresses that emotion and serves to create more of it. Thought and emotion are always joined to create experiences as the reality of the thought. The emotion is our “direct line” into another and the formative or creative factor that shapes the idea to be an expression of it. While our thoughts may be unique to each person, and the words we use form different pictures in each persons mind as an association, emotions are universal and shared by everyone in a congruent manner. Anger produces anger, and though how it’s expressed may be different from person to person, it still acts to stimulate and create more anger. The emotional component of an idea is what we connect to in others, and the idea as a thought is simply the form the emotion takes on as a vehicle to express as a reality. Whenever we’re communicating, the emotion “is” what’s actually being communicated through how we’re expressing ourselves. Our expression stimulates that same nature and expression in another and acts to multiply it.

anger

By learning to view how we communicate in a new light, we can not only become more self-aware, and perhaps realize why our communications fail to produce what we want them to produce, but through the awareness alone, we can hone our style for self-expression by learning how to perform much like an actor takes on the proper state and character traits to play a role in a convincing manner. Just as when we were kids and we modeled our hero’s and those we wanted to be like by taking on the same qualities and behaviors that served to develop us in those same ways by becoming the expression of them. When we learn how to communicate by performing, we develop higher forms of self-expression and become powerful creators in our own life. We learn how to “give” people ideas that we want them to develop and act to co-create with us by forming a joint reality out of them.

 

So as you think about communicating and what it is you wish to produce by way of the communication, think about what feeling or emotion as a state-of-mind that you want to elicit in them as the fertile ground for developing the idea you’re introducing into their mind as a thought that will be developed in their imagination into an internal experience. Then intentionally cultivate and take on that emotional state before you communicate the idea. Notice just how employing the emotional state changes how you form the communication in your imagination that changes how it delivered or expressed. Then, practice communicating in a way that consciously expresses the emotion by how you’re being. By your energy, your body posturing, facial expression, the tone and quality of your voice, and the rhythm in which you speak, and what you emphasize by “how” you say it. Communication is actually an art-form that’s performed. Like any performance based art, you have to practice to develop your style and your ability to become more expressive by learning to utilize your entire being as the basis for the communication.

communicating
To produce new behaviors takes the firm decision to do so, and commitment to a dedicated practice that’s undertaken in a devoted manner. Once we choose what we want to change and the new methods to be employed in their place, and we start by imagining our selves being that way, and doing it that way, we begin using the creative aspect of our imagination to form internal representations of an idea as a reality, that we then use for acting out to produce the same idea as an outer affect. Imagining an idea gives us the basis for practicing it. By practicing we build knowledge into our muscle where it becomes natural and automatic. We begin transforming how we’re being in the world, and how we express ourselves as a result. We learn how to truly connect to others and share ideas that simultaneously allow for emotional expression that’s healthy and productive in nature. By expanding our ability to express ourselves more fluently and eloquently, we form a new kind of confidence and enhance our experience of living by enriching the meaning things take on.

 

Practice only makes perfect when you know how to practice in the right way. Otherwise, it simply propagates a whole series of errors.

Life Lessons that Form the Opportunity for Healing – “Fragmented and Integrated Aspects form the basis of Karma”

cycles

The idea of Karma can be difficult for many to understand in its most basic sense, because they try to imagine and make sense of it through their conscious mind, when its actually a natural part of their subconscious mind, which is comprised of and operates out various levels of memory. Karma is formed out of experiences of life as an interpretation that only sees the significance of things from a limited perspective that interprets events to give them meaning, which turns it into a personalization as a perception, that becomes the nature of the memory. The memory that’s formed by how we interpret life events, forms the programming of the subconscious mind as an accumulative process that forms a dynamic structure of interrelated patterns that produce a coordinated movement (frequency) as a mental paradigm or “model of the world”. This model is the structure of our mind as a pattern that forms our perceptual lens as a filtering mechanism that structures our experiences.

 
Our subconscious mind is the aspect of our mind-being that forms all of our natural assumptions, expectations, and perceptual lens that’s also directly connected to and a fundamental part of our environment – the greater mind of the collective unconscious – and produces all of our natural and automatic behaviors, while producing the emotions that drive and govern our thoughts. Our subconscious mind exists in the realm just outside of time, and is always “present” and in the process of transmitting and receiving information from everything around us. This information is transmitted as vibration that produces sensations as feelings that stimulate our body, producing chemistry as emotions that alter our body’s state (frequency) to match our environment, which also alters our state of mind, as the unification between our conscious thinking mind, and our subconscious feeling-emotional mind. It’s also how we’re always blending into and becoming an essential part of our outer environment through an equilibrating process that’s a fundamental law of evolution. The inner and the outer exist in an intimate relationship with each other, and are always exchanging information both energetically and physically. The exchange of information as a relationship adjusts the outer to match the inner, and the inner to match the outer to form congruence and continuity. We only “receive” and are able to integrate the information from the environment that’s of the same frequency as an essential part of the same paradigm or that can be adjusted to fit into our model and can be perceived through our normal way of interpreting things to give them meaning that allows us to tell a story about them as a way of understanding them.

vesicaThis “style” of interpretation becomes what you could call our “signature” as a universal theme with a personalized twist, developed in a unique fashion by how we integrate “known” properties in our experiences, while failing to integrate “unknown” properties in our own make-up, which, even though we’re not aware of them, and don’t recognize the quality in ourselves (because we’re interpreting it negatively and don’t own it as a result) because they’re a part of us at the unconscious level, we continue to think the thoughts that promote them, while acting them out in a natural and unconscious way, and connect to those same behaviors and tendencies all around us. We are connected to, act as a magnet for, and are an inherent part of our unconscious aspects as we are our conscious ones, the ones we have an actual awareness of. This produces behavioral patterns as life-dynamics that we’re always involved in, that are actually acting to show us the unconscious aspects at play in creating our everyday reality.

 
As long as we continue to remain unaware of them, while still attracting and actively participating in them while projecting them onto others and our life circumstances, “seeing” them in others while forming a strong reaction to them, then we continue to live out of these same patterns as a life-theme, often without ever realizing our part in it. This is karma as “whole patterns” that contain both our conscious-aware aspects and our unconscious-unaware aspects. Our karma brings life-lessons as repeated themes played out in different ways, within different scenarios, and with a variety of people as a way of “revealing to us” what we’re unaware of in ourselves. By recognizing the patterns we consistently play out as dramas of some sort that are created by how we enter into relationship with those of the same tendencies that will actively participate in acting out the same dynamic allowing us to recognize ourselves being reflected back to us in them in terms of how they’re playing the opposite role in a complementary dynamic, provides us with the means to recognize our own tendencies that come more as impulses and emotional charges of some form.

tree reflection

Our life-dynamics as the storyline we’re always in the process of living out come as lessons in the sense that they provide us with the means to begin recognizing our own thematic patterns, what our part is that pattern, and what unconscious aspects we are responding to and interacting with in others by acting out the same type of reality. We can begin seeing what behaviors and false beliefs we hold about ourselves and others that are based on false assumptions as a form of denying aspects in ourselves that we don’t like or deem bad, and therefore build illusions around that make them “seem” different, while still outwardly displaying them through our behaviors, the mental scripts we run through our mind, and the nature of our interactions.

 
As long as we remain unaware of our own tendencies that are actively producing our life experiences, we keep acting them out, while imagining that we have nothing to do with them, and they’re actually being done to us by others or through the situation taking place of which we have no control. The lesson being offered as more of an opportunity for growth is to become aware of ourselves as the creator of our own life experiences. This is often because we don’t realize that there’s a difference between the outer, objective events of our life, and how we use those to create our experience of them. Many imagine that their “experiences” are actually a neutral and objective interpretation where everyone is having the same type of experience as they are by way of the same outer events. Yet in reality, nothing is further from the truth. The fact is we are all creating our unique experiences of everything around us that’s entirely different from the next person. Everybody experiences the same outer reality as a unique form of self-expression as “how” they form their experience of it that interprets it to give it meaning through their personal paradigm. Everyone notices different things, and abstracts different aspect of any given situation as a form of resonance that acts as a filtering mechanism. Our mind filters through all the information available, only selecting what aspects match it in terms of the interpretation it forms as it’s perception that tell a story of some sort.

When we can see and realize what we’re doing in any situation that’s actively participating in creating it, and “own” all aspects of ourselves by realizing them, without judging them, needing to explain them, or justify them somehow, then we can start becoming self-aware. When we begin recognizing our role in things, what part in our own story we’re playing, and what we’re doing to cooperatively engage and act them out as a part of a storyline, and what it is that draws us into them emotionally, we can begin seeing the dynamics we’re conditioned to. It’s always easier to recognize and accurately describe tendencies in other people than it is to recognize our own tendencies. The only reason we continue to participate in creating experiences that cause us pain and lead to suffering somehow, is because we’re unaware of what we’re doing. Just the recognition and awareness alone, begins dissolving the pattern by breaking the hold it has over us. Once we’re able to “see” what we’re doing and the reason for doing it, it loses its grip over us because we’re now awake in moments we used to be asleep in, and we no longer need to project it in order to see it. In this, the lesson offered is learned and we no longer create it without awareness of what we’re doing. All lessons in life are setting the stage that allows what is unconscious to become conscious. Shining a light into the dark areas of our inner being so we can see what’s normally hidden from us.

 
How we experience the events of our life by how we perceive it, and how we interpret it in order to make sense out of it, is entirely a personal creation as a projection of our inner reality onto our outer reality as “looking through our perceptual lens” which reorganizes the outer to match the inner by the story we tell ourselves about it that makes it mean something that births a unique reality as the unification between the inner and the outer, the universal and the individual, the conscious and the subconscious. Our mental paradigm connects us to that same paradigm in everyone and everything around us, attracting and entering into relationship only with what’s complementary to us.

flow

Through the relationship we form, we stimulate in each other our shared qualities and establish a behavioral dynamic as the story lived out through the nature of our interaction. While we tend to identify consciously with one role in an interactive dynamic, the fact of the matter is, we’re developed by that dynamic, and can naturally play any role in it, and often do by moving in and out of multiple roles by how we interact. The role in that dynamic we don’t like, we deny in ourselves, and though we continue to faithfully act them out, we tell ourselves a different story about what we’re doing and the reason for doing it that makes it seem different, yet it’s producing the same response in the other, and they in return “do unto us as we have done unto them”. Then, because the illusion we’ve created around it prevents us from seeing what we’re doing that’s “causing” the same type of behaviors in others to take place all over again, we imagine it’s being done to us unfairly and without us warranting or deserving it, and so we justify our right to respond by giving them back their own medicine, without realizing that that’s what they’re doing to us, or by using it to move directly into the role we’re familiar and comfortable playing in a dynamic we are actually programmed to and acted to initiate through natural behaviors that are produced in a predictable manner by our subconscious mind.

 

For example: Those programmed with a pattern of “being rejected” (which is a universal theme), formulate this theme with twists as a particular way of being rejected, why or what it is about that causes them to be rejected, what behaviors mean rejection, what tone of voice is used and what words are specifically spoken that tell them they’re being rejected, and what behavioral dynamic is being acted out by their parents and peers that caused them to feel rejected by what story they started telling themselves as a way of making sense of it. They develop behaviors that are defensive, adaptive, and a form of self-fulfilling prophecy by what they come to believe about themselves that shapes who they become and how they create their relationships that act out the same type of dynamic over and over.
They defend themselves against whatever is the reason for being rejected, projecting and returning to others the same judgment by how they perceive them, behave and treat them that give the other person the same feeling of as the trait they were rejected for, or they over-compensate somehow and take on dramatic behaviors, or reject others before they have a chance to reject them. Some form behaviors that retaliate and fight back with anger and hostility, which of course not only rejects the person it’s being projected towards, but makes them feel uncomfortable around them and avoid them as a result, which again creates the experience of not being liked or wanted. Sometimes they continue acting out whatever behavior as the reason for being rejected in an attempt to make people accept and love them in spite of these behaviors. Or, they’ve failed to identify the behaviors that cause them to be rejected and so keep acting them out without realizing that they’re promoting their own rejection.

triple 6

Other times, we continue to act out in ways that other people perceive as being rejected by us, causing them to feel rejected, and they act in response to us by rejecting us back. All without us realizing that we were the one that rejected them first. All patterns are self-organizing and self-perpetuating become self-fulfilling. What this means is that we actually play an active role in initiating the pattern that then becomes played out that ultimately results in our being rejected or not wanted. We either do things that initiate behaviors that start the ball rolling, or we interpret their behaviors to mean we’re being rejected when that’s not at all what they mean for them. We can interpret any behavior to mean “rejection”, create the illusion of it happening (all over again) then act as if our illusions are real and a factual and objective reality that we’re accurately evaluating.

 
Other times, we interpret positive behaviors that actually are loving and affectionate in a negative way, and shun them as a result. Behaviors that might be an expression of love from another, such as touching, cuddling, openly displaying affection, telling us how much they love and care about us, becomes interpreted by us as being clingy, needy, smothering, controlling, rushing into things, or pressuring us in some way. Or we don’t trust it, and feel as if we’re being manipulated, coerced, or used somehow. Because we don’t have a model for what it feels like to be loved, desired, wanted, valued, or appreciated, we don’t know how to act in response to these, and we don’t know how to perceive then for what they are, and so we begin by perceiving them incorrectly then responding inappropriately and sabotage a situation that would have given us the experience that would have contradicted our belief about ourselves and others. In this way, we get stuck in our own patterns and just keep acting them out because they form our very perception, how we interpret things to give them meaning and form appropriate responses, and what behaviors we know how to do and do automatically.

 
Because we tend to act out the same behaviors born out of the same perceptions as a defensive mechanism, while telling ourselves that when we do the same behaviors we imagine are being done to us, we have a different reason for doing them, or because we expect to be rejected and act as if we’re being rejected even when we’re not by how we interpret their behaviors. We remain unaware of what we’re doing that’s causing us to be or feel rejected. So we keep acting out the same tendencies because we don’t realize what we’re doing, and continue to create the same experiences over and over, often throughout our entire life, without ever realizing that we’re “at cause” within our own lives, and act as a magnet for attracting those who will cooperatively act out the same dynamic with us, each time giving us the opportunity to see what “we’re” doing and what story as a theme we’re always in the process of creating through our natural way of perceiving the world and others, and how we behave as an interaction based on those perceptions.

The Nature of Personal Power – “How to Become Empowered in your own Life while Empowering others in Theirs”

the-enlightened-ones-full
The quest for personal power takes on many faces, and can present a real dilemma for many people, most of which induce an endless compromise as a negotiation between unconscious-feeling aspects of themselves, and conscious-aware aspects. Whether or not we “own” our power and employ it as part of our personality and normal ways of doing things is not based on our conditioning in the typical sense, but rather how we respond to the events and activities of our life that establish and develop our identity. Even our conditioning and how we’re trained to certain dynamics being acted out and what role in that dynamic we take on as a part of our natural personality, develops the story we begin living out of that gives us a sense of ourselves by way of that story. We begin taking on a position early in life of either defiance, or stubbornly standing our ground when others act to intimidate or exercise power over us, or we back down, submit, become meek and emotionally weak, and allow them to control us, and thereby determine us.

heart to heart

Whatever role we take on in the dynamic we’re raised with develops us according to that role, and the story we begin developing in our minds as a way of understanding the way people are, and the way life is, also comes to define us in relation to it all. The story we begin telling ourselves as a way of making sense of it all, becomes the role we take on in general, and how we come to identify with our own story about things. We develop “interactive dynamics” out of our story about things where we are either in a position of self-control and initiation, or where we’re reacting to being controlled and manipulated by others through a reactive state.

 
When we feel powerless, there are typically a couple of ways we approach it, either succumbing to it and being a victim, helpless to change while suffering because of it, or we begin the quest of “getting” power by taking it from others. Some engage in a constant process of trying to exercise control over others or a situation by being manipulative, coercive or antagonistic. They’re always trying to figure out what they need to do to get others to do what they want them to do. They design their behavior strictly according to manipulative strategies that rely on a victim mentality that will give into them. In this dynamic, the person seeking power has to hook-up with the person whose willing to give up their power, and the victim who lacks power or looks to readily give theirs away, hooks up with the villain who gladly takes it. We always form relationships with our complementary opposite and continue acting out dynamics as a form of negotiation and soul-bartering.

 
You can always tell the difference between who has power and who doesn’t by their behaviors and what attitude they’re expressing and demonstrating. These same type of dynamics are being played out in all areas of our life, through various relationships, whether they be friendships, romantic, siblings, parent-child, social, or in the workplace. Whatever idea a person is imprinted with is integrated into their psychology and becomes a dynamic part of even their most basic behaviors. It becomes a natural part of who they are and how they’re being as a fundamental part of their personality and identity that they carry with them into all of their life-situations.

dyad torus

All relationships involve an interaction of consciousness as energetic dynamics formed by complementary opposites, that act on each other, stimulating in each other the opposite expression of the same trait that they share in common, that together form the interactive roles necessary to act out a dynamic as a joint reality that reinforces and strengthens each persons role in that dynamic. In every relationship you have the attraction and interaction of opposites as active and passive, masculine and feminine, outer and inner, and dominant and recessive. When relationships first form, one person or element establishes dominance over the other, which sets into motion a larger dynamic that the relationship serves to act out. In a healthy relationship, the roles of dominance are shared and move back and forth depending on what they’re doing or dealing with, where each individual’s strengths and powers are utilized to serve the greater good of both as a unit or interactive whole. This “dynamic-duo” action utilizes the strength of both as a dance with life. Here power is shared and equally moves between them as a coordinated effort or psychological strategy. In unhealthy relationships that exist with a lack of balance, one person consistently dominates and intimidates the other into submission, even when they clearly lack knowledge and abilities in the area of life they’re dealing with. This is where one person wants to exercise exclusive control over the other through a form of dictatorship, that ultimately becomes abusive. In this type of situation, one is always in the process of trying to get power by taking it from the other, and a power struggle ensues. The other usually responds by retaliating and contesting, purposely deceiving them behind their back, or by becoming passive and weak while building resentment that turns into hatred.

 
In any situation or behavioral dynamic being acted out as a relationship, you can immediately establish who has power, who’s looking to get power by taking it, and who readily surrenders and gives up their power while succumbing to the will of another in order to be accepted, loved, or to be apart of things. A person who has power, and therefore doesn’t need to get it from others or establish it outwardly through station or status, is not only comfortable in themselves, but act to stimulate others through the demonstration of their own power, employing them in a sense through a form of shared power. When we outwardly demonstrate power, we inspire others to access their own power in relation to us. We don’t necessarily give our power to those who don’t have power of their own, but rather when we demonstrate power as confidence and clarity of mind and purpose, we give them an example of what power is, what it feels like, and how to recognize it in others and themselves. Just through the nature of our interaction we connect them with that same internal resource, activate it in response to us, and call it forth in them, while giving them an example as a possible means for expressing it by stepping into it and becoming it.

 
Because true personal power is the most valued human commodity, and so few people actually possess it, and even fewer people know how to openly and comfortably express it by demonstrating it, many have no role-model that gives them a clear idea of what power looks and feels like when you’re in the presence of it. This is largely because power is a self-contained quality that’s connected to and drawn on completely from an internal source and not sought outwardly through an interaction of some sort. When we’re in the “presence” of those who are powerful we form an immediate sense of admiration for them, that causes us to feel a certain way, where we naturally access those same qualities in ourselves by resonating with them and entering into a natural state of rapport with them. Because of this, we feel more powerful when we’re around them. By watching their behavior and attitude, we can model (imitate) it, and in doing so bring out in us the same feeling. We can acquire a behavior as a form of template or instruction for learning “how” to be in our power. We can then “practice” being in such a way that we connect to the inner resources of “being that way” becoming a channel for expressing that quality which reshapes our character according to it.

geneIn order to access and develop a quality, we have to have a behavior or means for “being it”, that through the practice, we become like it. If we don’t have a pathway or way of doing something, we often stop at the realization of not knowing what to do or how to do it. This is what many people experience as being “stuck” when they’re attempting to change and transform their ability to manifest new realities by expressing in new ways. When it’s demonstrated for us, it acts to stimulate those same feelings in us, while giving us a model to imitate. By embracing that feeling while employing the same type of behaviors, we become the same in mind and body, and cultivate the same feeling state as a way of being in ourselves.

 
Whatever “state-of-being” is around us, we feel it’s presence through resonance, which activates those same feelings and qualities in us, calling them forth in response to it. As we “observe” the outward behaviors that express and inward feeling, and we “enter into them” through a state of rapport as inspiration (admiration), we naturally take on the same type of behaviors, becoming the outward expression of the same feeling-quality, and in being “one with it”, become the same as it. We not only access the same feeling-state within us that’s comparable to the outer state stimulating it, but we become the vehicle for expressing that state, and cultivate ourselves by way of that state to “be” like it.

 
This is the phenomenon of the most basic laws that govern our mind-body system as resonance (like begets like), sympathetic induction (vibration enters into the same vibration in another and produces an effect), and coherence that reorganizes the similar patterns of both to form a new pattern as a new whole. Whatever quality as a state of mind being outwardly demonstrated, stimulates, awakens, and brings into active expression that same feeling-state in everything around it. As it activates it and calls it forth, it becomes the basis of their interaction, which is the interactive expression of that same shared quality in both people. As it’s expressed through the dynamic (behavioral pattern) being acted out as the means for expression, it’s developed and strengthened in both people, and develops our character and tendencies through the shared enactment. We become one with the quality itself as a power, and it acts on us to reshape us into a new form and gives us a new way of being as the channel for expressing that characteristic.

energySo the quest for power that’s always going on, even when we don’t realize it or recognize it as such, is always acting on us to shape us in response to it. We only grow by what we resist. By recognizing this, we move into a position of not being affected by it by reacting to it in an automatic fashion, and we realize in that moment of control that we can “choose” our response. Once we begin realizing what’s going on energetically, while actively choosing how or if we’re going to respond, we begin exercising the first stages of taking back possession of our power to self-create and become self-determined through masterful use of our will. We can begin taking an objective view of any situation, seeing the underlying dynamic going on, and interact with it accordingly, with full awareness of what we’re doing and why. In this way we can truly exercise our power over the emotions of others and the material world, not by beating it into submission, but by entering into it while still maintaining full awareness of what we’re doing, become one in mind and body with it, then introduce an influence that will naturally bring out different qualities in others, and in doing so, lead it in a whole new direction through a state of complete cooperation.

 
This ability to work with the energy and consciousness of a situation is the exercise of true power and psychological dominion over the material plane as the ultimate form of leadership, where people don’t even realize they’re being led, and where you act to naturally bring out the best in people that creates an activity that serves the greater good in the most beneficial way possible for everyone involved. In a business sense, the greater good is the vision and mission of the business, and in an intimate relationship, the greater whole is the best possible response that brings out the best in each other and develops it through a loving and intimate interaction.

 
When we are in full possession of our own mind and body and able to operate it with strategic intelligence, we simultaneously realize that our power over others comes as a direct result of our power over ourselves, and the most natural way we control others is by how we influence them through our own behaviors. Not by attempting to exercise power over them or by reducing them to an inferior status, but by becoming an example for them to follow. We lead them by inspiring them in such a way that it brings out the best in them through an elevated state of being, that we then enter into a concert with becoming an example for them to imitate. We first act to bring out the necessary qualities and traits in others by embodying them ourselves, then give them a pathway for expressing them through the example we set, that elevates their station, and develops them through higher character traits to be fully empowered in their own lives by using their will as it’s intended to self-create and become a productive part of a greater idea to which they resonate and aspire towards. This not only creates a state of cooperation and uninhibited participation, but a sense of enthusiasm and passion that forms a deep sense of complete and utter devotion to the greater whole of which they are now an active and important part. The best way we lead as a demonstration of our power is by eliciting “love” in others through the beauty of our expressive abilities to inspire and enlighten and calls them to rise to new heights as an equal response to us.

The Dyad: Prayer as the Seeds of Karma – “Casting Images in the Astral Light”

prayer
Prayer is the primary form of how we connect to our higher power and request personal experiences, and is the primary means for first revealing karma (unconscious connections) then creating through it by living out of the memory of it. The idea of karma is represented in the Tarot as “Justice”, key 11 (value of 30), and means to “teach and instruct”. It represents the idea that we only truly acquire knowledge and instruction through practice that employs ideas to produce them as experiences, which integrates the knowledge apprehended through the experience of it as “memory”. The memories created through our activities and deeds, create our karma as a memory base, that become the seeds of future actions that are performed in a natural and unconscious manner. Our karma is the memory that makes up our subconscious mind, which becomes a natural part of our personality and forms our mental paradigm which is the basis for our perception and interpretations of life. Karma as the memory obtained through our life experiences that we create through our decisions and actions, becomes our perceptual lens that we look through to experience life, and becomes the basis for our creative capacity in terms of what we feel, how we think, and what we “ask for” by imagining it.

 
The mode of consciousness represented by “Justice” (key 11) is titled “Faithful Intelligence”, because we act out our unconscious conditioning (karma) in a faithful and predictable manner. The Hebrew word for “faithful” is AMN or amen, the confirmatory expression at the end of a prayer that seals it as fate. Amen is closely related to the Sanskrit “AUM or OM”, used as a focus point for meditation, which is the original form of prayer that masterfully employs the imagination of the individual. Amen and Om confirm the prayer as an imagined creation that’s a request for a personal creation. We “ask for” whatever we imagine. Most people use their imagination not for its creative potential, but rather by running memories of various sorts through their mind over and over, which is “asking” for more of the same type of experiences that formed the memory.

 
In this idea, we connect to spirit through various forms of concentration where we become one with the ideas that we are imagining. Our perception and interpretations based on memories become the motives for all our actions. Karma is the memories that make up our mental paradigm and become the basis out of which we continue to create through projections as our thoughts formed into imaginary scenarios that express through the memory as a pattern for creating more experiences of the same nature. Our “requests” for our life come as the application of memorized ideas in new applications that form new variations.

universal

We only form memories that are recollected out of the events of our life that had significant emotional impact. The emotion we experience as we form the memory determines how we interpret it to give it meaning. Our interpretation turns events into stories that convey the meaning things have for us. A memory becomes a whole reality as an emotional idea that becomes a form of template for creating instant realities as personal interpretations. The emotion is the “shaping factor” that creates the experience we have, and is what drives our behavior as the enactment of a memory. Emotions are compelling forces and tend to control our thinking as the reliving of memories. In this way, we continue to think and imagine out of memories of the past, recreating them in the present, and continuing to form behaviors out of them. Our emotional memories become the basis of our perception of life, and keep us living out of a primarily unconscious state by repeating basic life-patterns as emotional dramas.

 
Because the memories of our unconscious mind form our basic perceptions, our prayers are born out of these same perceptions as either an extension of them, or a solution to them. We’re usually either imagining more of the same type of ideas, or asking for what counteracts it, or what we imagine it will take to transform it. We do this, usually without ever realizing that it’s our own perception, interpretation, and behaviors that are acting to create it in our life. Prayer, as a request for a reality, works off the same principle as memory itself, and is formed by an accumulative process that creates an emphasis as an imbalance creating a new dominating factor.

 
We “rebalance” the scales by changing our “constant thoughts” to be of the same nature as our requested experience. We intentionally create thoughts by imagining being “in the experience” having it as a reality, where we think of it “as if” it’s a memory that has actually happened and is simply being “remembered”. This not only changes our perspective and perceptual lens, but creates a form of substitute memory that the subconscious perceives as a real memory, and creates it as an outer experience by connecting us to the elements necessary to act it out in our immediate environment. Our subconscious not only connects us to the greater mind of our environment, but also connects us to our higher mind. The subconscious mind is the “medium” that exists between the higher plane and the lower plane, and is the passive and receptive aspect that “receives” requests or instructions for creating realities within the material plane of which it’s an inherent part of. It communicates by transmitting and receiving information, not as dialogue, but as living realities or whole ideas that form a memory. The universal language shared between the upper and the lower is “holistic ideas” as the seeded basis for creating whole realities as actualized ideas.

To communicate with both the subconscious and higher conscious you must create an inner reality out of what you “do want” by imagining it with full sensory enhancement and strong emotional content that makes it compelling (magnetic). You must create it as if you’re in the process of experiencing it. Whatever we feel intensely, think about and imagine with strong emotions and sensations, we caste a pattern as a living concept into the Astral Light, which becomes magnetic. The Astral Light which is the same substance we form images out of in our imagination, is an electromagnetic medium. Images caste in it both transmit (project) and are magnetized, drawing the elements of the same nature and patterning to it.

 
The Astral Light is the field of illumination that surrounds the Earth as its atmosphere, that’s also what we call mass consciousness as the instinctual field or the morphogenic field, which is propagated with information for creation as memories, both of a neutral and objective form as living archetypes (subconscious programming for all of life) and as thought-forms created in the imagination of humans as the illusions of personal creations. Whatever emotional thoughts we dwell in, we emanate and draw to us, and become the energetic formulas for our self-created experiences. We become a beacon for them in the unified field of mass consciousness in which we are submerged. These thoughts are at once created out of our subconscious content, formulated into new variations as possible applications, then used to create more of the same type of experiences that amplify and reinforce our original subconscious programming. This is the true basis of Karma when it hinders or reverses our evolution by stunting and prohibiting our growth and ability to return to a creative state by creating brand new experiences of ourselves and our world. Accumulated memory, changed only through variations forms the foundation for continuous expression as self-creation.

speak creates

So while many think that prayer is what happens in that one moment that we set aside to ask for what will contradict what we spend the rest of our time thinking about, it’s actually being conducted all the time by how we think and use our imagination to form our thoughts into internal realities. It’s through our imagination that we communicate to the higher realm in the universal language of internal imagery. Whatever we think about, picture in our mind, and run through our mind as a scenario or movie that tells a story, we are in fact “asking for” by infusing it with an electromagnetic field, and casting it symbolically as an Astral shape within the Astral Light of the Earth’s mind, which becomes a pattern that makes us a magnet for drawing more of those same type of experiences to us. Whatever emotions we live out of that also shape our thoughts as the realities that that serve to express the emotion, also produce our behavior as our deeds and become the “causal force” driving the events of our life. All our actions produce an effect by transferring the emotion that motivated it. Our behaviors stimulate in others the same emotion that’s causing our behavior. The transference of emotions form the basis for all our relationships which are formed out of the shared emotional state that forms the nature of the interaction and the joint-reality that it acts to naturally create.

 
Our imagination is the medium that connects all aspects through a unified idea that works equally on multiple dimensions inherent within the same fundamental reality. It’s how the “inner” becomes the basis for the “outer”. It’s the key to working with all levels of the mind through the electromagnetic properties they all have in common. Its how we send a request as actual programming for our subconscious mind that reconstitutes it with new memory as creative patterns. It’s also how we “receive” information as ideas from the higher realm of spirit where knowledge exists as archetypes which are a form of universal memory as principles that give us the power to self-create by embodying and becoming one with them, and expressing in new ways as a result, reconfiguring the redundant patterns that seem to plague our life, revitalizing it with a new way of being.

 
To pray is to think and imagine while in a relaxed and receptive state. It’s to concentrate on an idea, become one with that idea by giving it your full attention without distraction, forming a single-minded perception of it as an inner reality from the perspective of being “in it”, having it, becoming the expression of it, that sets the vibration as a pattern caste in the Astral Light that’s transmitted both inwardly and outwardly as well as up and down (even armed cross), as a created memory that seeds an actual reality as its offspring. It caste’s a virtual memory as the seed for producing an equivalent reality as a personal experience.

 
Meditation is the most basic and effective means of prayer. As we meditate, we close out all outer distractions, placing our undivided attention firmly within, relax our outer mind and body, connecting to our subconscious by quieting and stilling our conscious mind, then concentrate on an idea, allowing it to rise fully within us in living form and begin unfolding as a stream of consciousness that becomes the reality of the idea as a direct experience of it. This same process can be used to both send an idea and receive an idea. It creates a two-way flow. Many times, just by concentrating not on the idea itself as a specific form, but on the laws or archetype that the form represents as a symbolic image, it opens up a two-way communication between the spiritual and material realm, where we co-create an idea by first initiating it, then by allowing it to take on a life of its own and begin forming in whatever way its naturally compelled to through a form of growth process that develops it into a progression of evolving forms as a kind of unfolding process or state of “becoming”.

transmission

Once it takes on a life of its own and begins forming of its own volition, it begins revealing hidden aspects of itself to us as the “receiving” of knowledge that’s acquired by witnessing and watching it. In this way we acknowledge what’s in us as our true nature that forms the nature of our inquiry as a desire to know more about something as a form of curiosity that directs our attention into it, penetrates and activates it, perpetuating the process which becomes a form of self-discovery. We begin by forming an idea as a symbolic image that connects us to that same idea as a principle in the higher realm of knowledge that exists in its potential state, creating an open channel of free-flowing consciousness that gives us knowledge by forming it “inside” of us as the “receptacle” for it. Through deep states of concentration, we become the receptor for higher knowledge through the faculty of our own imagination as our mind’s eye, or what’s traditionally referred to as our third-eye or Pineal gland, which is our tuning and receiving device as a transmission between parallel dimensions through the transmission and formation of Astral Light as symbolic forms.

 
We can learn to recognize the difference between fantasy and actual spiritual transmission, because fantasy is self-produced, and is a product of our own mind as a form of wishful thinking that has no foundation in reality in terms of natural laws, and is constructed completely out of our current level of knowledge as memory of some form. Higher knowledge comes as a form of education where we see and learn things we didn’t know before that couldn’t emerge out of our minds paradigm, and is usually the expression of universal law as archetypes. The education isn’t in the feeling or imagining itself, but in the laws governing its formation and animating its behavior. It teaches us the nature of law itself as a chain-of-association or evolving imagery all governed by and an offspring of the same principle, that teaches us how to recognize law no matter what form it takes on through the quality and characteristics of its form and the operation it performs through its behavior or the personality being expressed by “how” it’s behaving.

 
These universal laws are the same laws that not only form and govern the entire Natural world, but also form and govern our individual mind, and provide us with the tools necessary for creating by intentionally operating our mind with a sense of full awareness. They provide us with formulas for creative processes. They always come as the demonstration of law as form, function, and order, which acts as a model or concept that allows us to gain an understanding of it, that’s necessary for being able to utilize it at the practical level. Communication from the higher realm of consciousness is non-personal (universal and objective), and always acts to teach, instruct, and guide us with the knowledge necessary to create whatever it is we’re wishing for in our own life by learning to work by way the laws that govern our mind. Our mind has the ability to work through the elements that make up the Astral plane to shape our reality by reprogramming our subconscious mind with new memory that evolves it into new forms of expression and ways of being.

heart light

The only ability God or our Higher-Self has of working directly within the material plane is by working “through us”, by becoming one with us in mind and body. By receiving and accurately interpreting the knowledge handed down, reforming our mind by way of it producing new perceptions, interpretation and actions in the world. We pull down or draw into us the upper plane by becoming one and the same with it in mind and body. To become one with God, is to become God in-form. It’s to be in-formed by God. It’s to become “god-like” in mind and actions. To use laws as the consciousness of God to form our expressions and create our experiences, which remolds our subconscious mind as our soul.

 
Our creative ability lies in how we use our imagination by shaping Astral Light into conceptualizations that become internal representations as virtual memory that provides the subconscious with templates for creating new types of experiences as outer realities that match our inner realities. We enter into a state of communion with our higher source through deep levels of concentration, where we become one with an idea, and step into it, penetrating it through a desire to “know it” through the perspective of being it. We become the channel through which knowledge flows into the world as laws that create realities that form new memories that serve to propagate the ideas inherent in mass-consciousness, or more accurately in the “collective unconscious”. Through prayer as meditation, the self-conscious (thinking-verbal mind) connects to the higher conscious (archetypal-whole ideas) through the subconscious which acts as the passive medium between the two. By subduing the conscious “thinking” and willing mind as internal dialogue, and becoming fully present, we open up a two-way flow as the inquiry that stimulates the answer as a demonstration formed as an internal reality, which acts as a metaphor or allegory for how to apply it.

 
By learning to understand the language of metaphor and allegory as ideas and stories that are the living demonstration of laws and principles, we can learn to recognize it as its being played out all around us in our everyday life. We can also get a feel for how to apply it in our own life, in order to create by way of it. It teaches us to recognize the invisible forces that are always motivating activity and producing our behaviors. It develops our intuition, which is the only way we receive knowledge from the spiritual plane as “whole ideas” which come as a form of knowing, without an explanations for how we know. It comes as recognition of the relationship that exists between the known and unknown worlds. Between the invisible and visible realms. Between God and humanity.
