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

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

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

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

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

The Two Aspects of Our Lower Nature

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

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

Etheric Double

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

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

3 selves

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

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

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

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

3rd eye meditation

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

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

Interefering waves

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

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

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

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

Triad - Vesica Piscis

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

Tetrad Vesica Piscis

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

Triad

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

Triad becoming Tetrad

Pineal and the Subtle Organ of the 3rd Eye

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

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

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

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

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

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

Interefering waves

Sacred Geometry and the Law of the Tetrad (Manifestation)

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

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

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

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

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

Vesica Piscis

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

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

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

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

Etheric Double

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

Reshaping Our Model of the World

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

Merkabah

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Observing Your Own Internal Processes

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

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

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

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

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

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

12 Earth's moving through vortex

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

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

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

Mandala

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

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

Spark of Consciousness

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

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

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

Our Energetic Blueprint as a Metaphorical Theme

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

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

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

Stargate

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

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

Internal Representations as Holographic Models

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

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

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

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

Our Self-Image

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

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

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

The Physics of the Soul, the Nature of Our Character, and the Holographic Nature of Reality

The most prevalent misconception formed in trying to understand the nature of the soul, comes by viewing it as being the body and personality of the body. The soul isn’t the body as a “person”, located in a particular place and time, confined to live within a specific set of circumstances, it’s the “nature and character” of the “mind” that’s carried forth from one incarnation to another. We all have what you might think of as “two natures”. A lower, animal nature formed as our body, and a higher one that’s divine and creative in nature, both of which combine into one, forming our “character”. Our higher, conscious mind acts to project itself as an “archetypal being” into the lower plane of the material realm as a part of the subconscious mind, inherent in all of Nature, which is what we can think of as our “material mind” that acts to form what we perceive as a material reality. It then combines with its own lower mind as a means of expressing through the 3-dimensional material construct formed as a means of “experiencing” itself. As we form experiences of our “self” through the reality we act to create, we come to know ourselves through our own experiences, and we shape our character by how we associate with our own creation.

Our lower subconscious mind, formed as our physical (animal) body, is primarily emotionally driven and instinctual in nature, and acts on impulses to fulfill perceived needs of survival and generation, and forms “imaginary realities” out of its emotional states in place of what exists fundamentally as an objective and neutral reality. Our conscious mind is creative, rational, self-aware, and creates reality by turning thoughts into “material forms” in the imagination. This is the aspect of our mind that has the power to judge, evaluate, discriminate, reason, and make calculated decisions based on our own thought processes. Our conscious mind can internally generate its own emotions, which arise naturally in relation to how ideas are formed the imagination, while also having the tendency to be “run” by the very emotions it acts to generate. When the two minds combine, our higher abilities tend to be governed by the emotional delusions formed by our subconscious, and thought is used to not only construct the world of our emotions, but also as the means of validating them through reasoning.

Our Personality and Identity

Our lower nature forms what we call our personality, which comes in a completely unconscious and natural way through the dynamics we were trained to as a part of our formative conditioning, and our higher nature forms our identity, which comes by how we “see” ourselves in relation to others and our life situation and what roles we naturally take on as a result. While these two are compatible in the sense that each one systematically evolves out of the other as an interdependent unit, when we allow our lower emotional nature to run us, we fail to recognize a higher part of ourselves nested deep within, and we mistakenly build our identity out of our material existence.

We develop our character by always playing out emotional dramas that are fantasies oriented towards acquiring material possessions and status of some kind, and develop our character primarily out of a selfish, self-absorbed mindset. We become like an animal and lower being consumed by our own emotional dramas, made heart-sick with fear and anxiety, and ultimately condemn our soul to a life where we unconsciously self-administer our own pain and suffering. We literally shape our character to be an unconscious being manipulated constantly by outside forces inherent in our life situation, rather than using it as the means for consciously creating ourselves by actively directing our own higher mind of thought in how we experience ourselves and the world around us.

Butterfly Mind

A Prolonged Case of Mistaken Identity

Mankind suffers from a fundamental case of mistaken identity where we shape ourselves out of our lower nature. We don’t realize we are a dual, multidimensional being capable of directing our own lower, subconscious mind in using our body and physical circumstances to experience ourselves in whatever way we choose to. We “become” who we are through how we create experiences of ourselves. Many don’t even realize that they are the ones creating their own experiences through internal processes. When we create out of an unconscious state, we don’t comprehend how it is we’re shaping ourselves by what qualities and character traits we’re utilizing in a consistent manner to not only construct our reality through our perception of it, but also maintain and direct how it continues to unfold.

Once an illusion is built and set in motion, we exist in the center of it as a direct experience of ourselves “as” that reality, and don’t know to get out of it, because we don’t realize we’re the one creating it. We’re always acting “on ourselves” to shape ourselves through an interaction of outer forces set in motion by inner forces of the same kind and type. We imagine life as happening to us by outside forces beyond our ability to influence or direct them. Because we’re “experiencing it”, it seems real to us, and we don’t realize we’re the one forming it by how we’re thinking about it and perceiving it through a predominantly emotional state. We get caught up and hopelessly lost in our own unconscious delusion.

In many cases, everything becomes a doggy-dog world where you’re always struggling just to survive and try to somehow be alright with everything that’s happening around you. Surviving and maintaining some form of security and safety becomes your most basic concern and trying to maintain this becomes your constant life’s work. All the while, without directly realizing it, you’re using certain parts of your character and personality consistently, and as you use it to maneuver and experience reality, you develop it into a strength. When you’re driven in the most basic sense by “fear and stress” of some kind, you develop whatever parts of your character are correlated with it and brought out in response to it as a means of trying to work with it. Outside pressures act to stimulate and call forth corresponding inner qualities of the same nature, and together, form how we experience ourselves through the drama that naturally ensues out of them.

 Because this is all happening at the subtle, semi-unconscious level of partial awareness, you start compromising yourself through a process of negotiating your character in whatever way you deem necessary to establish safety and control and be alright. The more difficult or intense the situation is, the more willing you become in compromising your own integrity. As you’re pressured in some way, you start moving past previous rules you set for yourself as standards, and you begin rehashing things. The thought of losing whatever it is you’ve built your identity out of, causes extreme grief and deep feelings of insecurity that consumes you with a deep and pervading feeling of anxiety that seems almost unbearable. Most people, when pushed to the end of their ability to cope, will collapse with mental fatigue, and sell their soul to whatever force is threatening to take them out. This is the adage of “selling your soul to the devil”. The devil is the archetype also known as the “tempter who tests us”.

When we build our “identity” out of our physical existence and personality, which is what the higher soul is, and the thought of losing the very thing we “made ourselves out of”, represents a form of “death” of our “self”. This phenomenon is what’s referred to as the death of the ego, which, like all things born out of and sustained through a purely physical existence, is a misnomer, because the identity we form of ourselves as our physical reality, always “dies” with the body it was designed to sustain. All things of a material nature, no matter how solid and stable they seem, are temporary in nature, which means they are subject to a life and death process. The only thing that remains intact after death, is the memory we form of ourselves attained through our experiences formed while in a physical existence. We “shape ourselves” as our character (archetypal nature) through how we experience ourselves through our own mental construct. It’s our character and “who we are” as a person, regardless of what our life conditions and circumstances are, that’s eternal, because it’s our “internal nature” as our own creation of ourselves, that’s eternal in nature, and transcends the body at death as “memory of ourselves”.

This idea is represented symbolically by the concept of “gold” as being “pure” in nature, free of contamination by other minerals, while also being malleable, and able to combine with “ordinary minerals” as an amalgamation. As gold is melted and combined with other metals,  they’re fused together as the same thing, fixing and strengthening the gold making it hard and rigid, yet, when heated, the gold separates from the stone it was hewn to, and returns to a state of purity, free of the properties inherent in the minerals it was bonded with. Gold, in this case, symbolizes the higher soul of the conscious and creative mind, that’s comprised of “archetypes” that make up it’s constitution as its character. Whatever traits we actively develop by how we move through our life experiences, whether unconsciously without realizing what we’re doing while in the process of doing it, or consciously by realizing and choosing our actions, we shape and evolve ourselves accordingly.

When we shape our higher consciousness out of our lower, physical nature by building our identity out of it, we literally “bond ourselves” to it in mind and spirit. This means that we only “know who we are” when in physical manifestation of some kind, and when we die, which means our body and life situation dies, we (our soul) have to incarnate back into another body and similar life situation in order to “know” itself. Whatever we use to create ourselves as an ongoing and continuous experience of ourselves, we bond our soul (memory) and spirit (archetypal nature) to. Our higher, creative mind becomes a slave to our lower, instinctual nature, and we become like an animal, driven by the delusions formed out of emotional impulses and instinctual drives. Once we realize that we are the one creating how we experience the events of our life, and we begin identifying with our higher self as our conscious (self-aware) mind, and we shape our archetypal nature in a deliberate manner, we likewise form our “self” out of a higher, and much more dynamic way of being.

It’s only our archetypal nature as our character, and how we develop it through our life circumstances and situations by “who” and “how” we become, that’s eternal in nature and ultimately determines our soul’s destiny. However it is we develop ourselves through what we experience as “one life”, which is a cycle of growth and development, becomes the basis for the next life, because its only our character as our internal nature that survives the death of our body and remains intact as an invisible field of organized information (memory) that vibrates with our soul’s frequency. This field of living energy is organized as a formula of archetypal qualities that shape the characteristics of the material world as an “outer image of itself”. In the same way we develop our character through our life situations, we also shape our life situations according to our character. This is because one is acting to order and construct the other, and together, as an amalgamation, they act to set up the material circumstances that bring correlated experiences. The material world is always being structured by invisible forces, which also animates it with the activity it takes on. Attributes and qualities form characteristics which determine the shape something takes on and how it functions. Our higher soul makes our material reality as the means of using it as a vehicle and instrument for “knowing itself” through the direct experience of its own mental construct.

Hermetica

The Archetypal Nature of our Character

This idea appears very elusive because we tend to perceive ourselves as just being our physical body, rather than as we exist from a higher level of consciousness as the “whole reality” in which we live and experience ourselves as being a part of it. We don’t grasp the fact that our reality is being shaped by our mind as the equivalent correspondence of our character. Just as we shape ourselves through our outer world, we’re also shaping the world that reflects back to us our own mental nature, where they combine as an amalgamation to form a “singularity” as an “experience”. Our mind is an invisible field of intelligent forces combined in different degrees, measure, and potencies, forming a vibratory frequency. This frequency, which is unique to us as our state of being, is simultaneously shaping both our inner and outer reality to be a direct reflection of each other on smaller and larger scales. Our character determines the nature of the story we naturally act to tell, which can only be told congruently through the proper stage and setting. If we’ve shaped our character out of a consistent feeling of fear, we simultaneously project and perceive the reality of our fear, while developing all the traits called forth naturally in response to our fear. This way, we come to “know ourselves” through and as the reality formed out of expressing those traits.

Our higher soul of our conscious mind exists as a form of “archetypal matrix” or formula of qualities and character traits, which automatically form our reality as a construct of light, which we then “enter (project) into” as what we refer to as the “lower material plane” of the subconscious mind. The lower plane of physical reality is being projected downward as a unified construct, where once we enter into it as a part of it, we become “unconscious” of the fact that we’re actually the one creating it as a way of “experiencing ourselves” and coming to “know ourselves” through our experiences. While we’re “in it” as a fundamental part of it, having a direct experience of it through an unconscious state, we lose awareness of also being outside and above it, being the one who’s also orchestrating it as a means of knowing ourselves through our own creation. The material world of formation is also what’s referred to in Esoteric texts as the plane of “knowledge of good and evil”, and we only acquire “knowledge of ourselves” through “experience” that breeds understanding.

Death

The Illusion of Life and Death

Another fundamental illusion formed as a paradox we’re always engaged in is our perception of what we call life and death, and what it means to be both mortal and immortal. While we refer to our material reality as being “life”, upon closer examination formed from a different perspective, we come to realize that this is death, because as soon as we’re born into a physical existence, we are simultaneously destined to die. Life also assumes death as a “cycle” of growth and development. As we enter a material world formed as a cycle of time, or lifetime, where the time we spend here is temporary, and ends when our soul departs from our physical body, causing it to die. We experience our temporary reality in a fundamentally  fixed and stationary manner, where change usually only comes over a long period of time as a limited movement based on “internal development”, which, when looked at in light of what’s actually happening, is “dead” and often void of actually living.

Our higher soul, which is our mind, is a living field of intelligence forces that not only shapes our body and outer world while also inhabiting it, but is what also congeals, regenerates, and holds our material essence together as a single unit. When our soul separates and departs from our body, it’s no longer alive and held together by energetic tensions, and begins disintegrating. It falls apart and returns to the mineral kingdom it was formed out of. The only “life” the body or any part of our natural world has, comes from the soul organizing and animating it. The molecular structure of our body in constantly being regenerated by our soul through “life and death processes” where it “recreates it” through “memory” of itself. This is because only the higher soul is “creative” and able to construct reality as an outer projection or mirror image of its mental paradigm.

It’s the natural forces operating as a field of organized information at work in shaping, vitalizing, holding together, and consistently reconstructing its own image of itself. It’s only this higher aspect of ourselves as our soul’s memory and constitution that transcends the physical world when the body dies that’s actually “alive”. Its what orders, assimilates, metabolizes, and animates its own material construct (which comes as a reflection of its own inner thoughts) as a way of knowing itself through a direct experience of itself. The soul is eternal as “life itself” and what “brings life” to all things. It lives eternally “outside” the “illusion of time”, because “time” is created through the “space” formed as a 3-dimensional material (light) construct. As we form dimension through the movement of conscious energy between polarized aspects of itself (vibration), we also create time as the time it takes to move from one place to another within that construct. As soon as the spatial form ceases to exist, so does “time”. Time is only relevant to the material world.

The Principle of Creation

All of what we call universal principles exist in every aspect of what we perceive as “reality”, and operate in a consistent manner as the fundamental process of creation. This means that the same processes that occur at the microscopic level are also taking place at the cosmic level. This isn’t referring to the “material formation” itself, but to the invisible forces that shape and animate the material formations. Just as our spirit constantly regenerates our body out of memory, causing us to go through a life cycle where we’re born a baby, then steadily grow to maturity until we hit a high point and then begin declining until we die, we’re simultaneously reshaping our material world in the same way through the same process of self-regeneration.

While we can have a tendency to believe that others and the world around us exist independent of us as a stationary idea that has nothing to do with us, upon closer examination of our own psychological processes, we may discover this isn’t at all true. We’re only capable of knowing reality through our perception of it. Our perception is formed out of the model of our mind, called our paradigm. Our paradigm can be thought of as a dynamic series of “mental filters” that all work together to form the “lens” we look through to perceive the outer world. Each filter is produced by our values, beliefs, preferences, attitude, and memories, which act to sift through and separate out (order) only certain parts of what exists as a greater whole, and reconstruct (organize) the selected parts so they reflect back to us our model of the world. As we perceive another person, we only “see in them” the same attributes and qualities that we ourselves possess, and we remake them to resemble us as a way of experiencing them. We experience everything by how we reshape it by building it into our own mental model as a natural part of our outer world. We only see outside of us what also exists inside of us, because our perception operates through a filtering system that’s only capable of experiencing the outer world as a reflection of ourselves.

Our outer world only changes and evolves to broader and more complex ideas as we also grow and incorporate new ideas into our mental model, evolving it, where our character is modified accordingly. As we grow and develop in new ways, our perception of others and reality itself grows in the same way as a regenerative process. It’s not just our body that’s being regenerated unconsciously on a moment by moment basis, it’s also our entire physical reality, because it’s all being formed by the “same mind” operating on different levels and scales simultaneously. This is what the term “projection” is referring to. We’re always reshaping our outer world as a reflection of our inner thoughts, allowing us to see and know ourselves as an experience of ourselves produced on different scales simultaneously. This idea is represented by the symbol of the equilateral triangle, where there are opposing points on the same level of the base line, which combine in equal proportions to form a single point on a higher level as a “coherent state”. Each line that connects them all into a single form is not only of the same measurement, but also of the same angle, which is 60 degrees, and together form the famous “666”, given the title of the “mark of the beast”, which when added together and formed into a single digit become “9”. Nine is the number of man, and represents a “complete cycle”, formed out of three Triads or levels of the same mind.

The Law of Vibration and Polarity

This idea operates as a “frequency” formed out of the invisible field of the mind as an “organized field of coherent information”, that reconstructs the same formation on greater and smaller scales simultaneously, forming a single reality as equilibrium of opposites. The term equilibrium doesn’t indicate balance in terms of how it’s normally perceived, but rather as interaction and relationship of polar opposites in forming a single reality as a cohesion. This functions to create through a rudimentary process of resonance. A real easy way to understand how resonance works as what we can call the “organizing principle” that reconstructs itself as a holographic model on different levels at the same time, is by looking at a model of two string instruments that are tuned to the same frequency. If you take two guitars, and tune them using the same tuning device, and you set one across the room from the other, as you pluck the “C” note of one, it will act to vibrate the same C note on the other.

As it vibrates it, the sound produced by two C notes in harmony with each other amplifies and multiplies it. If we also used equipment designed to measure the other phenomena produced by the same sound, we would see that it also generates light and the color associated with the note as a correspondence, along with a geometrical pattern or symbolic formation. This same operation, formed out of a frequency as a dynamic orchestration of harmonic sound is how the mind works in only activating and bringing alive in everything around us only what matches our frequency, and organizes it into the same 3-dimensional model on the outer, greater level of the mind. What we act to vibrate occurs through our perception of it, while all the rest of the information inherent as possibilities for constructing reality, like the remaining notes on the guitar, remain latent in an inactive state. We only “see” in everything else what matches us, and we reshape the selected bits of information to form a mirror image of ourselves on a larger scale. This is the process we use for constructing the “stage” through which we express ourselves through the “story” we’re always in the process of telling ourselves.

The Dyad as an Interference Pattern and the Holographic Nature of Reality

This same process is what’s described in quantum physics as an interference pattern, where a pattern as both a particle and a wave, interferes with itself as an interaction that amplifies some aspects while canceling out others, forming peaks and valleys as a “standing wave”. As we interact with the cosmic field of the greater whole, in which we exist as a unique formula of the same qualities and characteristics, we act on those same qualities in everything around us to bring them out in an active state, while everything that’s not a part of our mental paradigm, remains inactive and forms the background as a neutral state where the active parts express through the activity they take on. We create through a very fundamental process of “natural selection” formed out of an unconscious state, where we only abstract a very small amount of the information available to us, and use it to form a whole reality as a new possibility. What we call reality exists in a fundamental state of “probability” as latent potential, and is reformed by the individual mind through the very act of “perceiving it”.

All material substance exists simultaneously as both a particle and a wave. This idea is represented by the symbol of the Monad, which is also the symbol of the mind as an electromagnetic toroidal field of circulating energy, as a dot within a greater circle or 3-dimensional sphere. The dot is the center out of which the sphere is projected as an electric pulsation, which then reverses polarity, becoming magnetic, and absorbs its own energetic construct, assimilating and concentrating it back into the center from whence it was formed. Both the inner and outer are formed as a “coherent state” that regenerates itself to form a duplicate, much like the cells of our body do through the process of mitosis, and then separates from itself to produce the perception of itself as another. It then interferes with itself as another, where some aspects are matched while others are contradicted and canceled out, differentiating in ways that recombine the same information to perform unique functions as a part of a greater whole. The parts that are matched become amplified and multiply, while the ones that aren’t activated remain dormant and form the backdrop within which the activated ones express through activity.

While we can say that we have an individual mind, that makes us unique from others, at the greater level, we’re all apart of the same mind, which forms reality out of the same group of universal memory as archetypal attributes and qualities developed to different degrees, forming characteristics that determine how we form our unique version of the same overall reality. We’re the part and the whole simultaneously. You can only know the whole by how it exists in relationship with the part, and the part is always a reflection of the whole that forms and births it, and within which it has its life through correlated activities. This is how cells, which are always born as twins that are duplicates of each other in terms of containing the same fundamental information (DNA), switch some parts off while turning others on as a means of differentiating to play a specialized role and function in forming a greater whole. Every time we come into what seems like a new and novel situation, we only act to “turn on” what we resonate with, bringing out the same characteristic that we ourselves possess, while “turning off” everything else which then recedes to the background in an inactive state, and we reformulate the selected qualities into a new pattern that forms a natural part of an even greater reality, all of which are of the same “nature and likeness”.

Thought Transference

This same process of passive and active components of the same thing function through the Law of Polarity. Vibration occurs as the spiraling movement of the same energy between two poles of an opposite and complementary nature that are set apart from each other, forming a “space-time continuum”. One pole is passive, the other active, and the energy that oscillates between them is the “same energy” as a “state of consciousness”. The active discharges and projects through space where it’s conceived by the passive component, making it active. It then reverses polarity because what was active is now passive and what was passive is now active, and the active aspect is discharged again towards the now passive pole, bringing it alive with activity. This movement between opposite poles that are complementary aspects of each other produce “heat” as friction, which generates light, making the pattern inherent in it perceivable as a 3-dimensional, holographic model. The “light matrix” formed “illuminates the idea” in the otherwise invisible space, in which its formed and held in place.

An electromagnetic pulsation doesn’t flow as a straight line from one point to another and then back again, but moves as a “standing wave” that functions at right angels with itself (90 degrees) in a manner that resembles butterfly wings, which also reverse as they propagate through space to form what resembles a cube-like formation as a 3-dimensional shape. In Esoteric texts, as well as modern science, the material world of matter is represented as a “cube”, in what science calls the “4 states of matter”, which is describing 4 phases or stages of development, initiated and set in motion by a 5th, invisible and mysterious force, called the “ether”, which is also the element of the “mind”. All of what we perceive as reality is constructed and maintained through a relationship of complementary opposites that “stimulate each other” into “existence” as a larger dynamic whole. This larger whole is formed out of the relationship formed by the different aspects of our mind as our conscious and subconscious, which perform different functions in producing a greater whole as a relationship formed with ourselves on different levels and scales of existence.

Energetic Entanglement and Superposition

We’re always acting to construct and maintain our “self” as a whole reality, where we’re located within it at the center of it as a means of experiencing ourselves through it. What we perceive as an inner and outer are actually polar opposites of the same energetic construct that exists in a coherent state. Each aspect of the same greater whole acts on the other to stimulate it into existence as an active expression. We (as a higher soul) exist both as a particle and wave at the same time. We’re both local and nonlocal, where we’re located at the center of our greater self as a holographic matrix of vibrating light formed through a coherent state, where we exist simultaneously as both the part and the whole.

Time and space are an illusion formed by existing both inside and outside of our own mental construct. Everything comes into “existence” as “twins” that are mirror images of each other and are of the same state as a vibratory frequency. Every vibration has both a pattern inherent in it and a self-assembling mechanism that constructs a light-body as a holographic image. This means they are different parts and functions of the same pattern as a holographic model, and remain “energetically entangled” (as one state) no matter how far apart they “appear” to be in space and time. Space and time are interdependent, where time evolves out of space, and vice versa, because as we move through space, we experience it as time passing. One automatically forms the experience of the other.

No matter how far apart twin aspects appear to be, if you influence or change the state of “one” through an interaction of some kind, the other instantaneously changes in the exact same way as a reverse spin (mirror image). There’s no way to meaningfully distinguish them as being separate things. This is the same principle working between what we perceive as being an inner and outer world, where they’re actually the same thing as a mirror image of each other and act “on each other” to stimulate each other into existence as a fundamental part of the “same reality” out of which we form a “unified experience”. This interaction doesn’t come through a “material pathway” as a form of “communication” between two points in the space time continuum, but happens instantaneously at exactly the same moment.

Hexad

This same principle of polar opposites existing as a single unit operates between what we also call higher and lower planes, marked by different levels of consciousness, where the higher forms a wave on the lower, and the particle exists within the wave as a part of it. The same holographic model as a frequency that constructs a light-body as what we can think of as “outer garments” that reveal the shape formed by its intrinsic characteristics through the relationship it forms with itself, takes place between parallel planes of the same overall dimension. All material formations are caused by an invisible field of energetic stresses that form a kind of “lattice of tensions” that act to generate light while also organizing it into a functioning coherent system. We are all multidimensional beings that exist simultaneously as an invisible field of intelligence forces and the material construct formed by that field. We exist as both our mind and body at the same time, joined together forming a “vehicle for expressing through as a means of attaining experiences of ourselves”. We exist in two places, so to speak, at the same time. Both as an inner self and a greater outer reality in which we use our physical body to express through as a life-experience, and as a spirit that’s invisible and visible at the same time. We’re located within our own space-time construct going through an experience, and non-local from outside of it witnessing it from a detached perspective while orchestrating the dynamic series of events that play out in what seems like a linear timeline from point A to point B.

When we complete one cycle of time, and die in terms of our physical existence, we absorb and assimilate all of our life experiences born out of how we developed and evolved our character, forming the memory as a holographic frequency that forms the basis for our next incarnation as a continuous process of growth and self-actualization. We move between different planes of existence produced out of our own archetypal make-up as a kind of “formula” comprised of qualities and attributes that give our world the characteristics and natural behaviors that spontaneously ensue from it as a natural form of self-expression. We both construct our reality as the stage necessary for us to express through an ongoing story we’re always in the process of telling by living it, and as a means of developing our character through our own self-generated experiences. As we form our experiences, we translate them into memory, which becomes the basis for generating more and more of the same type of experiences. We don’

Intuition – Clairvoyance, Premonition, and Attaining Higher Knowledge

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

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

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

Clouded Mind

Visualization, Memory, and Imagination

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

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

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

Divine Feminine

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

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

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

Healing Power

Premonitions

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

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

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

Conceiving Higher Knowledge

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

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

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

personal universe

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

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

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

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

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

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

vibration transformation

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

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

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

Forming an Understanding of it as a Whole

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

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

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

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

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

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

Imagination

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

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

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

vibration transformation

The Second Stage of Awakening – “Transformation”

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

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

ascension

The Illusion of Time and Space

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

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

personal universe

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Two Minds

The Dual Nature of our Mind

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Celestial Human

The Archetypal Design of our Soul as our Karmic Seed

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

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

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

Clouded Mind

Removing False Ideas about Yourself

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

Start off with questions like . . .

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

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

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

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

Recognizing and Integrating Your Shadow

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

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

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

etheric reality

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

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

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

Imagination

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

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

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

Returning to Wholeness

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

Moral Strength – The Power of Being Willfully Directed

Strength is a virtue that’s employed as the means for subduing and bringing your lower, instinctual nature under your control so it can be utilized as a vehicle for higher forms of self-expression. It’s the moral strength and discipline you exercise by using your “will” to control your own emotions, passions, impulses, and unruly desires. It’s only by learning how to manage your own internal processes that you quit allowing yourself to be controlled and determined by others through reactive states. Strength is developed by exercising your ability to not only control your own reactions to everyone and everything else, but also through your ability to use your reactions as a means of examining your own inner nature that’s always operating just below the level of awareness as an unconscious state, and instead remain in full control of yourself.

Strength, like any idea and character trait, has multiple meanings and various applications, yet they all ultimately mean the same thing. Its being able to stand calmly amid controversy and strong emotions being expressed and willfully projected towards you without allowing them to penetrate you and take hold where you begin internalizing and expressing the same emotion. It’s developing a moral code of conduct based on an acute understanding of universal laws where you can clearly see what’s happening in any situation in terms of the energy being willfully directed in a primarily unconscious manner as the means of creating. You learn how to use your will to deflect the emotions and attitude being projected towards you and not allowing them to enter your body and mind where you go unconscious and begin reacting. Anytime you’re reacting, you’re being controlled by whatever it is that you’re reacting to by becoming “like it” in nature.

Every action causes an equal or greater reaction, and the reaction becomes the causal force for intensifying, multiplying, and increasing the shared emotion. Any action we take is creative in nature, and draws direct consequences based on what it causes and sets into motion. Anytime we let another person’s behavior “get to us”, and we take on the same attitude and demeanor, we shift and become “like them” in nature. Our entire mental state changes to match theirs and we not only express the same emotions, but we develop the same character traits. This is how our character is developed in a primarily unconscious manner. The energy being projected towards us or that’s actively being expressed around and near us acts to “stimulate” us, changing our state to match theirs, “bringing out in us” the same qualities and characteristics, where we use them to express ourselves and create experiences of “being that way”. As we create our own experiences based on how we’re being and acting, we “sense ourselves” through those experiences and associate with them as a result. When we’re consistently stimulated by the same type of emotion bringing out in us their correlating characteristics, we produce more and more of the same type of experiences of ourselves, and we accumulate the memory that results, which builds up over time, making those characteristics dominant in us. Whatever we actively express over time, we identify with and use to develop our character.

Emotions, Characteristics, and Dynamics

What you want to allow yourself to notice through self-observation of your own internal processes, is that “emotions” are natural forces that operate as “instinct” on the material plane of the subconscious mind. Emotion is an electrical charge that’s freely transmitted through the atmosphere by living beings and is felt internally as a particular type of sensation that’s designed to activate and bring to the forefront the characteristics necessary to respond in an automatic and appropriate way. As we act to unconsciously receive an emotional force, it immediately alters our “state”, both mentally and physically, and causes us to behave in ways that don’t require a thought process or decision. This is what instinct is. It’s an automated form of consciousness that operates through the unconscious mind to produce correlated behaviors of a group or by being of the same consciousness (energetic state) as your environment. It operates to produce the mindset equivalent to the emotion where we react in a spontaneous way without being directly aware of what we’re doing.

While this process is designed to work through the subconscious, which is the instinctual mind shared by all of Nature, as humans, we are bestowed with a conscious mind capable of thinking, analyzing, reasoning, discriminating, and making our own decisions about what to do and how to respond to whatever situation we find ourselves in. When emotion is freely transmitted and received, and we take them on without a direct awareness of what’s happening, it not only compels an instant reaction designed only for that moment in time, but it’s harbored long afterwards, where we nurture and maintain them by continuing to think about them and we build whole imaginary realities out of them that “seem real”. Whatever we imagine as an internal reality that’s emotionally charged, acts to regulate our state of mind out of which we create in a corresponding manner.

Higher self

Animals don’t have the conscious aspect of the mind and don’t have the ability to think in terms of pictures that construct whole inner realities that don’t really exist, only humans have this ability. With animals, once the danger or threat is no longer present, they immediately discharge and release the emotion and go back to their normal state and activity, whereas humans don’t seem to know to release the emotion and continue to think about it long afterwards keeping it alive inside of them as a possible reality that they continue to live out of as if its still present and real. They don’t act to multiply and increase it by internally generating it as a natural response to their own thoughts, sustaining and transmitting it to others and their environment. We use the emotion as the basis for creating our reality and for developing our character by way of that reality as a correlation.

Through self-observation you can easily realize how these invisible forces operate through the atmosphere around you. Many people live consumed with emotions and are always creating their reality out of the emotional states they maintain consistently, while shaping their character from a predominately unconscious state as a “delusion”. Through close examination of how your own mind-body system works to generate your reality, you can begin forming an awareness around it. This is important to do, because we can only work with what we’re aware of and “understand” in the practice sense. Understanding is necessary in order to consciously direct unconscious processes. Allow yourself to recognize that there are two basic ways emotions operate within us, and how emotion is always married to thought.

Brain waves

Sit quietly, calm your mind through rhythmic breathing, subdue and set to the side all the impulsive, anxious, and habitual thoughts that run automatically, and form a sense of deepened inner awareness. Once you’ve formed a clear state of mind, choose something to focus on. As you focus your attention on it allow your thoughts about it to form naturally. As you begin thinking about it notice that you steadily develop it into a picture, concept, or scenario in your mind by shaping it with “sensory details”. The more detailed you make it, the more vivid and alive it becomes, and you begin feeling the sensations of it throughout your body (torso). The more sensationalized it becomes the more you start forming an emotional response to it. An emotion begins culminating in response to it, and it comes alive with activity and animated with the behavior natural to the idea. The emotion becomes the life-force that motivates the behaviors and activities it takes on as it starts playing out in your mind as a possible experience of “reality”. The thought-form created not only produces a correlating emotion that’s ideally suited for expressing it, but also forms natural behaviors that are formed out of specific characteristics. As these two combine into a single idea, they come alive and form into a reality as a possibility for experiencing as an outer reality of the same kind and type.

Through this process, initiated by a decision in what to focus on and think about, we “act on ourselves” to activate certain parts of our character and use them to form our natural behaviors and how we’re “being”, and those qualities and characteristics are what express to produce an equivalent “experience” of our “self” as our own creation. As we think we’re constantly acting on ourselves to create the outer reality of our thoughts as a way of experiencing them. As we form ideas into pictures while imbuing them with sensation, we’re literally giving our subconscious a directive as a thematic pattern for using to organize and construct an equivalent outer reality of the same kind as a means of producing our own experiences. As we mentally construct and call forth our own experiences, we relate and associate with them, and build our “identity” out of them as a result.

Fire ice

Reverse the process – now let’s do the same process of self-observation in the reverse role where we act to receive the emotions being expressed by others. This may be difficult to do at first while in a live situation, due to the fact that it usually happens in an automatic fashion and renders us temporarily unconscious, but we can use a memory to achieve the same objective. Once we’re able to form a clear understanding of how this “automated process” works, we can begin using it in live situations as a means of disciplining ourselves and exercising self-control. Once we can refrain from going into a reaction, we can use it as a means of introspection and begin forming a heightened sense of self-awareness.

Again, sit quietly, calm your mind and clear your thoughts by pushing them to the background, and pick a memory of an event where a fairly intense emotional exchange occurred. Focus on how it began, noticing what state you were in before being triggered, and then the behavior displayed by the other person that acted to produce a pronounced stimulus in your body. As you’re being stimulated by it, notice where in your body it’s the strongest, and how it makes you feel as a result. Notice that it acts to instantly change your entire state of mind and physiology. As it “enters you”, notice that as it takes hold it becomes prominent and causes you to go semi-unconscious where you become lost in the reality of the feeling and can’t seem to direct your own thoughts. As it consumes you, notice that you immediately associate it to an existing memory that made you feel the same way, and you use that memory to interpret the present to be about the same thing as the past, and you not only go into a whole story about what’s happening, but also behave in the same way you did in the past. As you act in an automatic way, you create the same type of experience, and set the same idea in motion. When this happens, you forfeit your conscious mind and reside almost completely in your unconscious mind of instinct, where the outside stimulus is controlling and directing your activities and what kind of reality you create in your imagination.

In both of these processes, allow yourself to notice that what you think about and the emotions that are equivalent to those thoughts act together to activate and bring out qualities and characteristics in you that form the behaviors that result from them. As you think and feel, you stimulate yourself bringing forth certain aspects of your character and use them as the means of creating your experiences. As you form your own experiences, notice how it is that  you shape yourself by way of those experiences. We develop ourselves by consistently employing certain parts of our character as qualities that form consistent type of experiences and natural behaviors. Whatever characteristics we utilize in each situation are developed through the dynamic that ensues out of them. Certain qualities play out in certain dynamics as behavioral patterns that not only strengthen those traits, but also condition us to the dynamics as a certain way of being that acts naturally to express as a correlated myth or story. We’re always acting on ourselves to create ourselves through how we tell a particular type of story by becoming the main character and author of that story. Allow yourself to notice that there’s always “one part of you” talking to “another part of you” and telling a story by how you explain, describe, or justify things.

Passion and Desire

This same idea plays out through our passions and desires, which come as emotions that stimulate our primal, instinctual nature, producing a strong desire as a magnetic force. Our passion comes as a strong emotion or magnetic feeling regarding something that makes it very compelling and attractive. Desire comes as “wanting”, wishing, longing, and craving. These are the primal instincts that form the basis for “temptation”, and often pose our conscious willful mind in direct opposition with our subconscious emotional mind. In this situation, where complementary aspects of ourselves become adversaries, emotion usually wins, because of their motive power in producing a strong physiological effect. On the lower material plane and in relation to our animal body, emotion is equivalent to “will” on the higher planes of the conscious and creative mind. When we let our emotions run us and we make all our decisions out of them, we utilize our higher will to fulfill physical desires and physical pleasures of some kind, and create ourselves out of our instinctual, primal nature, fashioning ourselves to be equivalent to animals. This doesn’t mean that our lower nature is bad or something we should shun and reject, but rather a part of ourselves that we need to subdue, tame, and bring under the presidency of our higher will so it can be used as a vehicle for consciously creating in the physical world.

By choosing and intentionally using our rational, reasoning mind as the basis for directing all our actions, we can bring our emotional nature under the control of our higher will, where it can be utilized to enhance our ability to express ourselves, and as a means of imposing a direct influence over others and the situation at hand. But to do this we have to bring our own emotions under control by learning how to deflect the ones being transmitted by others instead of absorbing them, while using thought in an intentional way to generate desired emotions. To do this, we not only form a working concept of how emotions as natural forces are transmitted and received, but also by using a visualization process to shield ourselves and deflect them instead. All energy can be directed and utilized through mental means. Mental operations are conducted using the creative faculty of the imagination to form internal (invisible) concepts that function and operate in specific ways. In the same way emotion as energy is invisible and can’t be seen, while producing a pronounced physical effect that sets a whole process in motion, a shield can be produced on the invisible realm of thought that can work to intentionally direct the flow of energy.

We can do this by first realizing that we all have an invisible field of energy that surrounds, permeates, and envelops our body, that’s like an egg or spherical shape. Some call this the aura which appears on the inner planes as a cloud-like essence vitalized with colors, which is being emanated by the “mind”. The mind itself is an invisible field of energy that can be pictured as a glass sphere that we look through as a means of shaping our outer world. We can visualize this etheric egg shaped field as being made of a crystalline substance, similar to glass, where any energy directed onto it from an outside source, instead of penetrating and blending into it, is reflected off the surface like a mirror and sent back to the person projecting it.

What we call “light” is basically invisible and only becomes illuminated when reflected off the surface of a material substance of some kind. Colors are contained within the clear light as its hidden, inner nature, and become fragmented when they come into contact with a material (solid) object, where some of the qualities (frequencies) are absorbed and integrated as the inner state of the object, while others are reflected into the space around it, forming it’s “outer appearance”. Whatever color an object appears as is formed by the rays its reflecting off the surface, which are complementary to the ones absorbed and integrated to form the objects inner nature as its energetic state. This is a metaphor for the fact that whatever energy we act to unknowingly absorb, we integrate into our inner nature, allowing it to determine our state of being to match the frequency, and whatever we reflect forms how we appear to others as a mirror image of themselves. Whatever constitutes our inner nature determines what we attract outwardly as our complementary opposite. This will become easier to understand through practice where you’ll come to realize that when you maintain a state of inner calm around someone expressing strong emotions, you act to neutralize them, allowing the person to realize them as their own and see them in a different light as a result.

Picture the energy field of your mind-aura as a solid outer shield that’s crystallized glass, while telling yourself (setting the intention) that any energy being projected by others can’t penetrate your sphere, and instead spreads out on the surface, much like a movie being projected onto a screen, where it doesn’t affect you, but you can still watch the movie its impregnated with as it plays out in a distant and neutral fashion. This allows you to understand what the person is feeling without combining with them mentally and reshaping them on the inner planes of your mind to be “like you”. As you act to reflect their own story back to them in a neutral fashion, they get to see it in a different way, and gain new insights as a result. Practice doing this as a mental concept and visualization until it becomes intuitive, where you do it naturally. If you allow their emotional energy to penetrate you, where you feel it as a stimulation in your body, become aware of it, and mentally push it back out until its resides completely outside of your energy field, and then reseal it, telling yourself it can no longer penetrate it, and refocus your attention on managing your internal state returning it to a peaceful calm.

Subduing Your own Lower Nature

Subduing your lower nature and bringing it under the command of your conscious mind is accomplished by forming a practical understanding of the universal laws of the mind that forms an awareness of what you’re actually doing when impulses naturally occur. When you remain unaware of what’s happening energetically between you and what’s around you, you willingly engage in a participatory manner with whatever activities and behaviors are being openly displayed by others. Whatever we blend with mentally, emotionally, or physically, we become like in nature. Our morality is formed through the activities of our mind in terms of how it is we present ideas to ourselves internally. When we give into our primal urges and emotional reactions, we allow our lower nature to take control of our thoughts and higher will, and we create ourselves to be like others and of an animal nature. We create from an unconscious or semi-unconscious state without being aware of the consequences that result from it.

Once we’re able to understand what’s happening in terms of the natural interaction that takes place between our thoughts and emotions as our conscious and subconscious mind, and we’re able to use our conscious thoughts to direct and utilize our emotions as a means of expressing ourselves, we’re able to use our physical body as an instrument for creating in a willful and self-aware manner. When we cultivate the ability to not be affected by other people’s emotions and instead learn how to internally generate them as the motivating force that gives life to our thoughts, we can begin creating ourselves from a primarily conscious state and in a much more intentional and precise manner. Moral strength comes as our ability to discipline ourselves in emotionally intense situations or where we’re tempted somehow with our own weaknesses to give in and compromise our own integrity. We exercise it in remaining calm and focused, where we can make conscious decisions through a realization of the consequences they’ll render and then initiate and direct the activities that will produce the reality of our decisions.

The Nature of our “Self” as our State of Mind, and how we Create our Reality

As humans, we’re always locked into a very fundamental paradox due to the fact that we have what you might think of as two different natures or aspects of ourselves, which, when left to operate in a purely unconscious and natural way, tend to contrast and seemingly contradict each other. This paradoxical concept exists as what we call our “dual nature” which is actually the interaction between complementary opposites known as our subconscious and conscious mind, the right and left hemispheres of our brain, our emotions and intellect, and our lower and higher self. While we tend to think of these as being separate from one another due to the fact that they each perform distinctly different functions in producing a greater whole, the truth is they are actually singular in nature. They’re not “unified” in the sense of integrating two or more aspects, but exist as a “single mind and organism” that function as a “coherent state” and work harmoniously together in forming a greater whole.

While we tend to think that there’s such a thing as an inner world of thought and feeling, and an outer world that’s abstract and objective, if we care to look at it from a neutral and detached perspective, what we come to realize by observing the activities of our own mind is that they are always correlated as a direct reflection of each other. This is because it’s actually our mind as a “mental state” (energetic frequency) that’s producing, animating, and maintaining both. What’s commonly referred to in Esoteric Sciences as “illusions of reality” (maya) that form our personal delusions and keep us locked into a false reality of our own making, comes through a fundamental lack of self-awareness in the most basic sense of forming a belief that we’re separate from the very reality being projected by us. We live and shape ourselves within our own creation, usually without ever realizing it. We can often feel as if we’re a victim in our own life, helpless to change the circumstances that cause our own pain and suffering, without ever seeming to realize that what we perceive as being outside of us is actually being constructed and held in place by our own thoughts made real through an experience of them. The bridge that connects the inner with the outer comes by how we use both aspects of our mind as a means of “experiencing” ourselves.

Our Inner Stargate to Parallel Dimensions

Many form false concepts around the idea that the way to move into and through different dimensions is to find a portal or stargate as a physical location on the Earth, instead of grasping the fact that we all come equipped with an “inner stargate”. Then when people get to these seemingly “magical doorways” of the Earth’s electromagnetic grid, they appear as a solid wall of stone, or open into plain air and don’t seem to go anywhere. But instead of realizing what it’s showing us in terms of the true nature of inter-dimensional travel, we feel confused and dismayed, and go back to formulating another approach, while the answer to the greatest mystery of all lies “within us”. When we look within for the answers, we tend grab onto ideas like the pineal gland, associated with the third-eye of the subtle body, another physical mechanism, and glorify it instead of comprehending that the pineal, along with all the other endocrine glands and parts of the body, are all being “operated” by the “mind”. The most basic function of the Pineal gland is in forming our “mood”, which is the same thing as our state of mind.

What we have come to call the “mind” and “soul” are actually referring to the same thing and are multidimensional in nature, which means they “exist” and function as a “coherent being” on multiple planes all at once. This is the reason why our means of moving between what we perceive as being different dimensions as a place and location in space, is by learning how to operate and intelligently utilize our own mind. As we move into different dimensions through our ability to perceive them (which is what reality is), we don’t “go” anywhere. All of what we perceive to be different dimensions are interlaced within and permeate the same “space”. What we refer to as a dimension isn’t necessarily a location as a different material plane, it’s an “altered state” that tunes us into a different type of reality that brings us a particular type of “experience”. You can form the basis for understanding this by simply looking at the different aspects of your own life as various forms of “dream states” that occur naturally through alternating states of mind.

Different Mental States produce Different Realities

A basic shift in “reality” naturally occurs at night when you go to sleep by subduing and turning off your conscious, self-aware, thinking mind, where only your subconscious is still fully operating. In our nightly dreams, where our body not only doesn’t go anywhere, but also doesn’t move very much, we still form whole realities that are often quite emotionally intense in terms of the type of experiences created. Our night-time dreams which are formed out of our subconscious are somewhat different and much more symbolic than we experience in our waking state when our conscious mind becomes dominant and we shift from a purely inner awareness to a predominantly outer awareness. Our subconscious doesn’t shut off when we wake up and our conscious mind takes over, it’s still at work in shaping our reality in the same way that it continues to operate all of our bodily and automated biological functions. The only difference is our mental state changes, and our awareness shifts from an inward to an outward perspective. Our brain waves are in a Delta-Theta state (0-8 Hz.) when sleeping, and upon waking, shift into an Alpha-Beta state (8-40 Hz.), and the type of reality produced through purely mental means changes quite drastically as a result. The reality created in our nightly dreams is a symbolic representation of our waking reality (dream), and are often how we express emotions that we couldn’t find an appropriate way of expressing in our waking life.

This same idea can be readily observed through any kind of meditative state, while concentrating in a single-minded fashion, or daydreaming by being lost within your own imaginary thoughts. Anytime you alter your state of mind, your body is actively altered also, and you enter into a different type of reality that exists simultaneously within this one. It’s as if you simply “tune into” a different frequency, and in that frequency a whole different reality proliferates out of it in a completely natural way. You’re not consciously making it up, all you do is focus your attention on an idea or way of being, and your mind projects the reality of that idea as an experience of it. You can experience it as either watching it from a dissociated perspective, or as being associated within it as a part of it. When you change states from a deep meditation back into your normal alert state, it’s very similar to waking up from a dream where the reality begins to fade away and becomes more of a vague impression that’s somewhat elusive and fleeting. When concentrating deeply on an idea, that idea serves as the tuning mechanism for entering into an altered reality. We step into an idea, which is a form of magnetic current, and we enter into a parallel dimension that coexists within this one. We go into a whole different thought process that forms an imaginary reality that’s superimposed over our existing reality and brings us new insights and realizations. As we we return to our normal waking state of outer awareness, the realizations gained through entering into a parallel reality become distant, somewhat impressionistic, and begin to fade in an out.

This is one of the true powers of metaphor and symbolic ideas. When we concentrate on a metaphorical idea it acts like a tuning device for moving between dimensions that are all coalesced within one another. The gods and deities of mythology provide us with tools that we can use for tuning into the natural forces as “qualities of consciousness” associated to that god or deity, and by coming into direct contact with them as a shared state of mind, forming them as a part of our energetic constitution, we not only transform through the acquisition of new ways of being, but our perception of our self and reality changes also as a direct correspondence. As we begin feeling different about ourselves, our outer reality changes simultaneously in the exact same ways. What this is showing us is that the reason they both change as a correlation to each other, is because they’re actually extensions of each other as integral parts of the same thing.

Higher self

The Relationship of our Higher and Lower Self

In order to begin utilizing our mind as a means of consciously creating in our life, we have to form a basic understanding of the different aspects of our “self”, known as our subconscious, lower self, and our conscious, higher self. These two parts of our self are not “different things”, but different aspects of our self that function as complementary opposites in forming and maintaining the same mental construct as a coherent reality. Our “self” is our “I” or “I Am” as our identity, and doesn’t come as an inner that’s detached from the outer, but as a single reality viewed from a central point within that reality which is necessary in order to “experience” our “self” as that reality. The appearance of separation is necessary in order to create an “experience” of our self. It’s not an illusion in the sense that it doesn’t really exist and we’re just making it up, the illusion comes by the fact that we don’t realize that we’re actually the one creating it, not by forming it on the inner planes and then projecting it outward, but in terms of the fact that we are actually “reality itself”. What we perceive as reality is produced by the mind as an interaction between polar opposites of itself that operate fluently on multiple levels simultaneously to produce the appearance of both an inner and outer, and an upper and lower, which are all aspects of a greater whole.

Reality doesn’t exist “outside of us”, it’s all produced and maintained “inside of us”. It’s all being produced as a mental construct within the sphere of our mind which originates on a higher plane that contains the entire lower plane within it. The reason we exist in a state of duality is because we’ve disassociated from different parts of our own nature, and have formed a belief that we’re just our body viewing everything “out there” from a limited perspective where we imagine we have no control over what happens to us. We come to believe that even our own experiences are something that comes naturally beyond our ability to control them and we’re subject to whatever is happening around us. When we live our life out of this state of mind, we’re always being shaped by others and the events of our life, without seeming to have any control over it or ourselves. We become a victim to our own perception, and stay locked in a mental prison of an unconscious state, usually without it ever dawning on us that we have the key to unlock our own cell.

One of the ways to understand this idea using a different model is to realize that while many of us have been taught and led to believe that our body is made up of trillions of cells, all playing a different role in an independent way from all others, the truth is we’re actually a “single cell” organism. We are comprised of a single cell that regenerates itself as a duplicate, which then reorganizes its internal structure to differentiate, so it can play a specific role and function in constructing and maintaining itself as a part of a “greater whole”. Every cell in our body originated from a single cell as a process of regenerating itself and then separating from itself to form “two cells”, each of which has altered its internal information as a means of specializing. This is the principle of “life” as “halving and doubling” known as mitosis, and spiritually as the process of regeneration and multiplication to produce greater wholes that all exist “within each other” as different parts of the same thing. Likewise, our mind exists simultaneously on different levels as smaller fields nested within larger fields of the same nature as our individual mind, the group mind, and the cosmic or universal mind.

This idea is also conceptualized geometrically as the Monad (center that emanates an outer sphere of the same kind), which generates itself as a physical body located in the center of an outer sphere that it’s acting to emanate, which is what allows it to see and experience itself as a whole interlaced reality. We have a center point (location) and an outer sphere emanated by the central point as a mirror image of itself on a larger scale, which is what allows it to experience itself as a finite being within a greater reality of the same nature. The inner circulates as an electromagnetic energy field forming the outer as a larger aspect of itself, which is then drawn back into the core as an experience of itself. The outer stimulates and concentrates the center, and the center emanates and projects the outer, forming itself as both the body and the outer reality in which the body lives and has an experience of itself. The Monad represents both the mind and the soul which work to form the “self” as a whole reality in order to experience itself, and evolve itself according to it’s own experiences.

The Monad duplicates itself as a mirror image of itself in order to perceive itself as another, forming the Dyad, which is symbolic of both the subconscious and conscious aspects of the same mind. These polar aspects of the same mind work in unison with each other to form what appears as both an inner and outer reality of the same nature. This same principle forms the interaction of the polar aspects of the mind and self as it operates on higher and lower planes as what we call our higher and lower self. These polar aspects of each other are connected by their center and combine to form an overlapping field, out of which a correlated idea is formed, first on the upper (and inner) plane of the imagination, and then on the lower (or outer) plane of material reality, as mirror (reverse) images of each other. These polarized fields of the same mind (vibratory frequency of the same pattern) create a modified version of themselves by only combining selected attributes and qualities that they share in common to form a new variation of themselves. This principle is represented in Quantum Physics as an “interference pattern”, where some aspects are canceled out while others are amplified, and as a result form a new pattern of correlated qualities that births a single reality as their “offspring”. The feminine aspect of the subconscious produces an entire outer reality that the masculine aspect then acts on and within as a means of creating itself.

Psychologically speaking, this represents that our outer reality is being projected by our subconscious mind and contains all the internal content of our mental paradigm, including the repressed and hidden parts that we’re unaware of. This all-inclusive reality is then perceived by our conscious mind, which only recognizes the known aspects of itself, while failing to recognize the suppressed and hidden aspects of it’s own inner nature that it has denied having and therefore disowned, and as a result perceives itself as being different, and not the one actually producing it. The two spheres of the subconscious and conscious mind connect at the center (inner nature), forming a straight line between the inner and outer, which represents a “plane” that also has an upper and lower level. An idea is formed in the imagination on the upper (inner) plane, forming a triangle where the straight line that connects the two centers combine to form an exalted state as a single point (apex), which is then reflected downward into the lower part of the same plane, as a mirror image of itself. The upper and lower combine to form a single reality, represented by a diamond shape. The internal image is used as the means for producing an equivalent material reality of the same type and kind.

This diamond shape as a mirror image of the Triad, when turned 90 degrees, forms a square or cube, which is the symbol for material reality. The axiom “as above, so below” isn’t a mystical idea, it’s showing us that our mind and reality are actually different aspects of the same thing. There’s no difference between them, they’re symmetrical to each other as mirror (polar) images. Reality as we’re capable of knowing it doesn’t “exist” outside of our ability to “perceive it” as an outer material construct. Matter is actually composed of light (photons) and our mind is the organizing principle that shapes light into a holographic construct that appears as a stationary material formation. This principle, demonstrated through the concept of the Tetrad, functions on all levels of our mind in exactly the same way as what we perceive as an inner and outer, upper and lower, past and future, self and another. It’s all a living hologram constructed by our mind as the means of experiencing our self, and shaping our self through our own experiences. The whole and the part are formed out of different combinations and configurations of the same group of correlated information.

The Holographic Nature of Memory

This same holographic principle operates to form memory, which is created and maintained through purely mental means, and is used as a kind of thematic template for creating more and more realities of the same kind that bring more and more of the same type of experiences. The pentacle at the top of the triangle that combines both of the parallel aspects of an “inner and outer” into a single point, represents the fact that we form all of our experiences out of the “interaction” that takes place through our perception of an inner and outer, which is interpreted in a specific way and translated into our memory of the experience, which we acted on ourselves to produce. While the experience may be formed out of what’s perceived as different things, situations, events, and people, it’s all unified back into a single idea by how we interpret it to give it meaning. A memory is used as the perceptual lens we look through as a means of restructuring the outer to be of the same nature as the inner, as the theme used for of interpreting it, and is then absorbed and assimilated back into the same memory as a variation of itself, modifying and upgrading it accordingly.

The interpretation is formed out of our existing memory as a means of multiplying it into an infinite number of little, minute and correlated memories that are all of the same overall idea as an accumulative process. Memory is a kind of template that we superimpose over our existing reality as a perceptual filter that we use to form our experiences by how we interpret them to give them the same meaning. Memory, like the mind that produces it, only appears to be acquired as fragmented pieces of unrelated experiences, while actually existing on both the inner and outer planes as a single whole. Our mental paradigm is formed out of synthesized memory that forms a dynamic model that regenerates itself to produce an outer reflection of itself as another, and then is the means through which we assimilate all of our experiences back into a single whole as the story we tell about our life as a state of being. Our “story” is what gives our life consistency and forms how we “sense our self” in association with our own self-created experiences, and shape our self as a result.

While we’re in the lower plane of material reality, we function as dual aspects of a single mind known as our subconscious and self-conscious. While some present these correlated aspects as not being active at the same time, the truth is the subconscious is active from the moment of conception until death, and never sleeps. It’s only the self-conscious mind of the intellect that sleeps. The subconscious forms what is commonly referred to as the etheric-double or subtle-body, which serves as a blueprint for not only constructing and regenerating our body, but also for maintaining and evolving the outer reality in which the body lives as a story it tells about itself. Our etheric-body is a cohesive substance that acts as a medium for information to flow in a rhythmic manner between upper and lower planes of the same mind. It’s constitution is formed out of coherent memory that’s organized in infinitely different ways to produce every function necessary to create, maintain, and consistently regenerate itself as an evolutionary process conducted by producing and then reabsorbing new variations of itself and integrating them back into the originating idea.

How we shape our “Self” through our own Experiences

Our subconscious is the lower aspect of our mind associated with our animal (mammal) body and is what forms the basis for our personality, which is complementary to our genetic makeup and developed in the initial sense through our formative conditioning. Our personality forms the foundation out of which our identity naturally takes shape based on the roles we begin playing within our family unit and social group. While our identity forms in a natural way as the logical outgrowth of our personality, it’s also the aspect of our “self” that we can create in a conscious manner by learning to utilize the higher capacities of choice and free will. When we remain in a primarily unconscious state, unaware of how it is we’re using our mind in creating our own experiences, our identity forms as a natural extension of our personality through the mental model of our conditioning and in a way that seems natural and beyond our control. By the time we become an adult we have ended up in a certain type of situation and just continue to move forward and build out of that situation, usually without realizing we have the power to direct the course of our own destiny.

This automated process is what forms the idea that we are a soul born with amnesia, where we’ve forgotten who we really are as higher, fully conscious, sovereign being in charge of our own life creation and individuality. When we don’t realize who we are in the spiritual sense, we often fail to realize that we actually have two aspects of our “self” that we need to synchronize harmoniously into a single idea, and we view our heart (subconscious) and brain (conscious) as not only being separate entities, both vying for control, but often perceive them as opposing one another as adversaries. When we don’t understand the natural relationship that exists between our thoughts and our emotions, which are what brings life to our thoughts and motivates the actions we take as a result of how we think, we usually end up allowing our emotions to run our thoughts and we haphazardly end up creating the reality of our emotions. This is what keeps us locked into and constantly repeating the patterns and behavioral dynamics instilled in us through our conditioning. Emotions are always associated to memory and are what acts as the triggering mechanism that keeps us in a constant state of reacting, where we run automatic patterns based on the memories that are activated by the emotions we’re being stimulated by.

Many people become so used to allowing their emotions to run their thoughts that they don’t realize they can actually exercise control over their own thinking and use their higher mind to subdue and direct their lower mind. And instead, they reside in a primarily unconscious state where they let their thoughts run unattended in an habitual manner as a constant form of internal dialogue. This is what forms the “broken record” that runs continuously by replaying the same thought-processes over and over and over, most of which are meaningless in the most basic sense. This is the primary way we recreate the past in the present, because we’re forming a constant dialogue with ourselves using the same memories. The thoughts we’re thinking today are the same type of thoughts we thought yesterday, last week, last month, and two years ago. We use the memories of the past to anticipate and interpret the events of the present, by making them mean the same thing, and then use the same memories used to interpret the present as a means of trying to anticipate and predict the future.

Transforming

We then feel confused when we consider the idea that our thoughts are what’s producing our reality, because we’re creating the reality of our thoughts without being aware of it. We think our thoughts are formed as an objective interpretation of our experiences, which we also believe are objective and not being created by us due to the fact that both come in a completely natural way without a direct awareness of what it is we’re doing. Reality as we’re capable of “knowing it” is always “subjective in nature”, not because we’re the one actually producing it as a material manifestation, but because in order to create an “experience” out of a material set of circumstances, we have to “interpret it” to make it “mean” something. It’s the meaning we give something that forms the story we tell ourselves about it and is what creates how we experience it. Meaning itself operates on three levels simultaneously in the sense that the story we tell ourselves about it not only means something about us, but also about others and the way the world is in general. The “story” we begin telling ourselves about things forms how we “sense of our self” as the main character of our own story based on how we associate with it, and we systematically shape our “self” by way of our own creation.

If we interrupt our habitual thoughts as an automatic rambling, and simply step outside of them while also detaching from the emotions associated with them, and we take a position of observing how our own mind is operating to create our perception of reality, we can come to understand that thought as a “mental form” is directly connected to emotion, which is what animates it and motives the activity it takes on. We can realize through observation that whatever we focus on and think about gives rise to a correlating emotion in response to it, and likewise, whatever emotion we take on from an outside source, shapes and determines what memories as already formed ideas start playing out in concert with the emotion. This is because memory is formed as ideas that are married to emotions, and they work together to produce offspring as our perception of reality. As we think we invoke an emotional response to our own thoughts (already paired in the memory), which causes them come alive outside of us as the “reality of our thoughts”. Our perception of reality is what allows us to experience our thoughts.

Reality isn’t created through singular thoughts intentionally created as a wish or desire of some kind, it’s established and consistently maintained through our habitual, ongoing, never ending thoughts. Most of which come as the result of our emotional states that were formed into habits through our formative conditioning. When we don’t realize we have the ability to cultivate our own emotional states based on what we choose to focus on and think about, we tend to live in a constant state of internal conflict, where one aspect of ourselves seems to be pent against another aspect. Where our emotions contradict reasoning, and seem to take command of our thoughts without our ability to resist them, keeping us attached to and repeating the same tendencies of the past in an automatic manner. This is what it means to live out of an unconscious state where we have no real awareness of how it is we’re creating our own life experiences.

This sense of duality as inner conflict is further enhanced by the ill-advice given by others who tell you to “follow your heart and not your head”, which means follow your feelings instead of your thoughts. As if they’re different things and one is right while the other will lead you astray. This is where we get sayings like “the road to hell is paved with good intentions”, and “the blind leading the blind”. Your heart symbolizes your subconscious, which is feeling oriented, always present, and instinctively driven through emotional impulses, and your head is symbolic of your conscious mind as thought and will, which has the ability to discriminate and reason in order to make calculated and intelligent decisions. The idea here becomes to get them where they’re about the “same thing” and both moving in the same direction as a means of creating in an holistic manner that’s free from internal conflict. Emotions are the driving force of instinct which comes as activities that don’t require thought, reasoning, or actually making a decision. Thought as a material form created on the inner planes of the mind have no life or activity without emotion – and therefore never manifest as an “actual” reality that provides us with the basis for experience. The idea is to bring these two seemingly different aspects into a harmonious and coherent state as a single reality that brings a sense of peace and contentment, instead of facilitating inner conflict as an ongoing war between them.

Higher Self

The Etheric Blueprint of Our Mind

The subconscious is always active and operating as the very foundation and substrata of the material matrix we experience as “reality”. It operates consistently throughout our life to create a consistent version of reality out of an unconscious state by using memory. Memory forms patterns that create through automated processes. Our conscious mind, or should I say what we perceive as being our conscious mind while within the material construct of our subconscious, is only partially active and is intermittent in nature. This is the part of our mind that goes to sleep and shuts down, losing all awareness of the outside world while our subconscious is still fully operating and producing inner realities out of memory orchestrated through our nightly dreams. The subconscious is always present and has no concept of time outside of natural rhythms. It runs automatic patterns in the present while the conscious mind is distracted and thinking about things that are not a part of the present. The conscious mind is hardly ever present and tends to reside almost exclusively in “time” thinking about the past or attempting to predict the future.

Our conscious mind is our intellect as it’s reflected from a higher (all-inclusive) level, and is what not only witnesses the creation of our subconscious, but also forms all our “word oriented” thoughts as internal dialogue. As we speak we simultaneously form an internal “image” of the meaning of the words or sentences. As we interpret the outer events of our life we reshape them as the basis for experiencing them, producing more and more variables of the same basic theme (meaning) as a means of synthesizing them back into the mental model that birthed them, and evolving our model as a result by way of it’s own offspring. This mental model as our paradigm or energetic structure of our mind, is what’s commonly referred to as our “light body” or “etheric blueprint” that serves as a spatial map or holographic model for not only producing, maintaining, and regenerating our body, but also for constructing and consistently regenerating the outer reality of our body as a direct correlation of each other.

This idea forms a direct connection to our genetic makeup where our DNA has both memory as information to produce and reproduce our physical body, while also storing the memory acquired as experiences through our body. The geometric shape of the Monad can be thought of as the mind and soul and the karmic seed for producing itself as a whole reality, and is symbolized as a dot (black circle) in the center of a larger sphere or circle (white or clear) of the same shape (brain within a membrane), much like the individual cells of our body. This shows us that the outer is an expansion of the inner, and the inner is concentrated into a solid form by the outer. It also represents the idea that all light, which means matter, because matter is composed of photons, exists simultaneously as both a particle (fixed form) and a wave (greater reality as a field). This is the nature of duality, which doesn’t come as “I’m over here and you’re over there”, it comes as our soul creating “itself” as both a body (particle) and whole outer reality (wave) at the same time. The outer is an emanation of the inner, and the inner is formed by digesting and assimilating the the outer.

Energetic Entanglement

This principle is further illustrated through the idea of what we now call Entanglement in Quantum Physics. This basically describes how any two particles “born together” as a form of regeneration, or that become unified as a coherent state (polarized) continue to function as “one” no matter how “far apart” they appear to be in space. This doesn’t occur as a kind of communication from one place to another through a physical pathway, but happens in an instantaneous fashion because they “are” the “same thing” as an “energetic state”. This is because it’s not the material aspect that makes it a “thing”, it’s the energetic “state” that’s acting on and through the material substance to organize it into a material construct. Material reality, both as our body and the entire outer reality in which we live and acquire experience through our body, is organized into a “system” by our soul’s mental state. Our state as a frequency is the organizing principle that coalesces matter into the physical construct as the pattern that’s inherent in that frequency. Every “vibrating system” contains within it a holographic idea as a 3-dimensional model that crystallizes light into a material structure.

While we tend to think that things vibrate on their own independent of us, this isn’t so. The truth is light as little packets or clumps of light exist fundamentally in an unstructured state of probability, until a mind (which again is a paradigm as a frequency) views or observes it. When the mind interacts with an unformed array of light particles, it “influences” the light to form into the same holographic structure as the mind, where it becomes a logical part of the same overall reality (light matrix). Matter is shaped into a material construct as a fundamental operation of the mind. Matter itself is neutral and void of an electrical charge, and acts as a “receptacle” for consciousness to “enter into” and use as a vehicle for constructing whole realities as a correlation of itself. While we tend to think of “spirit” as being “light”, the truth may be that light is the crystallized “shell” (outer garment) spirit concentrates into a material form so it can inhabit it as the means of creating and experiencing itself “as” and “through” its own mental construct.

While most of us have been taught that an atom exists independent of us as an organized system that’s similar to a mini solar system, or beebies all revolving around a nucleus, we now know that this isn’t the case at all. An atom, when not being observed, exists as a mist or cloud-like formation, and only “collapses” into an organized system when it’s being perceived by the mind of an individual. It consistently forms itself in the same way because we’ve all been taught to think of it in the same way and so we set an expectation as a preconceived idea about it. It’s actually our thought about it as a frequency that shapes and determines how it “appears to us”. This is one of the biggest reasons why new discoveries are seldom made, because we only perceive in the outer world what’s produced by and can be explained or predicted using our mental paradigm. So reality exists a paradox in the most basic sense of the idea.

Summary:

What this all tells us if we care to look at it objectively from a detached perspective, is that what we experience as an outer reality, is actually being formed and maintained in a completely consistent way by our mind as a “mental state”. The Earth, which is also a living soul, vibrates at a consistent frequency forming the fundamental structure of reality we call Nature. Due to the fact that we are all formed out of the material substance of the earth, we all vibrate at a similar frequency (average 7.5 to 8 Hz.) as our subconscious mind, which is also the unified mind of the “collective unconscious” that we share in common with all life on Earth. Our mental state operates as a frequency that’s comprised of a dynamic series of correlated states as a “range” of moods and emotions that we’re constantly wavering in and out of. We work through our outer reality by working with our own mind as the inner reality produced by our own thoughts which form correlated emotional states. We can control and regulate our emotions by controlling our thoughts. While this may seem difficult to do initially, because we’ve become so conditioned to letting our imagination run wild and in a completely undisciplined manner, with dedicated practice and concentration, the more we do it the easier and easier it becomes to do.

By learning how to become aware of our habitual thoughts, we can also gain insight into why our life is the way it is. Through this awareness we can learn how to consciously decide what to focus on and think about, and we can learn how to produce positive emotions in response to our own thoughts. We can learn how to quit allowing memories of the past to play out randomly in our mind in an habitual fashion, and we can start choosing to intentionally direct our thoughts instead, and as a result our outer reality born out of our perception will change accordingly. The more we become aware of our own internal processes, and we begin working with them in a fully aware manner, the more our outer reality as our experience also changes. Once we fully realize that our mental state, which is regulated and determined by what we focus on, what we tell ourselves about what we’re focused on that gives it meaning, is what’s forming the perceptual lens we look through for creating our experiences, the more empowered we become in being able to grow and transform ourselves to a higher and more expanded level of creativity within our own life.
