The Art of Interpreting Symbolic Imagery Designed to Communicate Higher Knowledge

Interpreting symbolic imagery is an art-form that only comes from an in-depth knowledge of the principles being illustrated. I wanted to use this famous Egyptian/Sumerian hieroglyph as the means of demonstrating how to translate symbolic imagery, because I have seen many instances where it was translated very poorly, or in a completely inaccurate way. We have a natural tendency to try and interpret ancient ideologies using our “modern paradigms” for understanding, instead of embracing the paradigm of those who wrote them. I’ve heard many say that the ancients just drew what they were seeing, and their writing should be taken literally as a result, and this imply isn’t true. Hieroglyphs were a universal language that illustrated ideas as principles in a way that could be conceptualized, which is the key factor to learning, and which could be interpreted equally by any race or culture. Due to the fact that they had to be interpreted, every single person formed a unique interpretation of the same idea.

One of the primary reasons for inaccurate interpretations is probably due to the fact that they don’t understand the imagery associated with occult sciences, which is the universal language of the ancient world. In ancient cultures around the world, the “soul” was a primary idea and what created the entire reality and life experiences of the human being. This particular piece is very rich in the symbolism that explains and describes how the Soul works on multiple levels simultaneously to create the illusion of reality as the means of gaining knowledge of itself through “experiences” of itself produced by both an inner and outer reality of the same nature. The only way we truly “know anything” is through experience, and in order to gain knowledge of our self we have to create experiences of our self.

I’m just going to give a basic interpretation of the symbolic concepts being illustrated, and allow you to fill in the blanks in whatever way makes sense to you. All symbolic imagery forms a “living language” that has to be interpreted in order to be understood, and every person forms a unique interpretation based on their level of knowledge and awareness. One of the things to always keep in mind is that in all symbolic compositions meant to represent a whole or greater idea, every single aspect used to compose it is a corresponding attribute and quality of the whole idea. This means that every shape, feature, number, color, quality, characteristic, and attribute has a specific purpose in communicating an important part of the greater idea. It’s this feature that gave us the saying that “a picture is worth a thousand words”. Symbolic imagery is the only language that’s universal in nature and can be equally understood by everyone while forming a unique variation of the same idea. From a spiritual perspective, we’re all meant to not only be individuals in our own right, but to create our experience of reality in a way that’s unique to us as a personalized version of a universal concept.

The first thing you always want to notice is the overall idea being illustrated through the composition of the whole piece. This image shows a large figure communicating with three smaller figures of the same nature (they all look alike) on a different level (dimension) and scale (size). The large figure sits on a square cube behind a wall or barrier that’s decorated with a motif that symbolizes polar opposites joined at the base, situated between two vertical pillars that are held together by a linear base and an overhead canopy or plane. The large figure rests on the upper plane of the cube and is a unification of the polar opposites which serve as its foundation and throne. A square or cube represents material reality as the organization of the four elements that make up the soul’s “constitution”, and are what forms the basis for the reality of the soul as its outer projection.

The larger figure represents the “higher self” as the human soul that forms and administers the entire material plane as a projection. Its headdress is shaped like a cone with five-waves of energy that symbolizes the third-eye and the transmission, reception, and transduction of energy through the ether (5), where it flows in waves through the hair, beard, and garment, and down through the base or linear foundation on which the whole idea rests, and up into the garment of the smaller figure that’s opposite of it on the other side of the barrier. There are seven primary waves or levels of energy flowing through the foundation and are what “inform” the reality of the three smaller figures on the other side of the barrier. The barrier appears as a wall that’s comprised of 33 layers or joints (spine has 33 vertebrae) whose foundation (base ornament) is polar (twin spiraling serpents), and whose capstone is triune. These 7 waves are adorned with 4 circles that enclose an 8 pointed star, and are spaced evenly in a way that represents the relationship of Phi (Golden Mean and the Law of Thirds) as the part being proportionately the same as the whole (halving and doubling) by how they’re positioned in relation with the upper plane that rises out of it.

In the right hand of the Soul is a circle and rod, which represents the yoni (womb) and the phallic (seed), which are made out of the same thing formed into complementary shapes (shape always indicates function). This is also the basis for the Monad, which is symbolized as a sphere with a rod or staff vertically emerging from the center. This is also commonly symbolized by an egg with a serpent wrapped around it, and a “solar disk” as the circular head dress of certain deities resting in a chalice formed by a serpent, with a tail coming out of the back side and a head coming out of the front.

The pineal gland of the brain looks like a serpents head and tail when viewed in its natural state within the brain. Above the head of the Soul and forming the foundation for the canopy overhead, is three symbols that represent the Moon (Mother), Solar Sun (son) and the Cosmic Sun (Father). The left hand holds the beard through which the signal is being transmitted, which resembles a pillar, through which cosmic energy is being translated by the Soul. Both arms are bent in such a way they form a right angle, and where the pillar (phallic) rests in the lap (womb), and the posture of the whole body also forms a right angle. The higher Soul is a hermaphrodite, where feminine and masculine aspects exist in a balanced and harmonious state.

The rod that rises out of the foundation forms a backdrop that extends up forming a right angle that hangs over the top of the barrier (resembles the corpus callosum of brain), and has a smaller version of the same figure as “dual aspects”, represented by 2 heads and set of arms and hands that are holding and controlling the 2 cords used to hang the “solar disc” on the other side of the wall. All three profiles of the higher self are of the left side of the face (associated with Chokmah), and all three of the smaller images are of the right side (polar opposite as a mirror image) of the same figure (associated with Binah). The cord is formed by two pieces wound in a spiraling motion and forms a triangle shape that also forms a right angle (Pythagorean Triangle). The disk rests on a holder or cradle on the table, which is formed out of the same motif as the cube throne and wall, representing polarity (two spirals orientated in opposite directions, resting on 2 horizontal (parallel) planes) and a base with 10 parts (universal laws). The table has 2 legs (pillars) bound together and strengthened by a cross-brace on the underside and top of the table on the upper side. A table top represents a “plane” of existence.

The solar disc, also called Shemesh, is associated with Tiphareth on the Tree of Life (Sun) as the Higher Self or true human soul that never incarnates into the physical realm because it’s what’s “creating and orchestrating” the “entire” physical plane from a higher dimension. The Solar Disc represents the Monad, the 4 elements and cardinal signs, 3 emanations that rise out of them (also at a right angle), and the archetypes of the zodiac, which form, govern, and operate the physical plane. The circle with a smaller (sometimes shown as invisible or empty) center, is divided into four solid points that resemble the 4 corners of the Earth on a compass, the 4 seasons of time as a transition between opposites, and the 3 waves that emanate from the combination (relationship) of pairs, which together form a “whole” as the expression of 12 archetypal energies that arise out of 4 cardinal signs or Elements. It’s comprised of 4 emanations that sit at a right angle to 4 material Elements, forming an 8 pointed star. There’s a distinct relationship between 3 and 4, one representing the mind, the other the material world which is formed by the mind as a mirror image and reflection into a parallel plane. 8 represents an octave which is formed out of 7 notes (3+4=7) as a “whole scale”. The cosmic disc is represented by 8 emanations, whereas the solar disc is 4 emanations at right angles to 4 solid triangles, representing the emanations of the Father made manifest through the son.

The disc is a “mirror image” and projection of the Higher Self on a parallel plane (the left side of the face is shown on the large image, and the right side of the same image on the parallel plane), and can only be “seen” or “known” through the “whole reality” of the individual within that plane. The lower soul can never look upon the “face of God” (its creator), because in order to do so you’d have to die and enter into the same plane. We can only know our Higher Self as God by looking within at the thoughts being transmitted and absorbed by our subconscious (wavelengths being transmitted and conceived), which produces the basis for our outer experience of reality. This is the same idea that’s conveyed through the image of a bearded god (ancient of days) that’s emerging out of a “winged disc” that has 4 layers of horizontal feathers and 3 layers of vertical tail feathers, with two legs and spiral feet, commonly thought to represent a UFO.

The 3 smaller figures of the same character and appearance of the Higher Self, represent the 3 aspects of the mind, self, and soul, commonly referred to as the subconscious, self-conscious, and etheric double, which is what forms the template or blueprint for producing the entire plane of material existence as a mirror image of itself. The subconscious is the aspect of our self that exists in direct contact with our higher self and receives instructions on what to create through mental imagery. The small image that’s the furthest away from the larger one is the one that’s receiving direct transmission through the underlying foundation on which the whole scene rises out of.

Both arms of the figure receiving the transmission from the Higher Self are raised to the higher self, and in the middle figure one arm is raised to the Higher Self, while the other holds a torch in the left hand that’s being held by the right hand of the third figure, showing a transmission of knowledge through the direct connection of complementary opposites (polarity). The third figure holds the table, representing the plane of material reality that the original projection serves to in-form. The cap on each of the succeeding figures gets smaller and more rounded, losing its cone shape. The Higher Self has a cap with 5 parts (ether) and the receiving aspect of the lower self has 4 parts (material manifestation). The transmission of knowledge takes place through a sequence of correlated stages that are all polar aspects of each other as an outgrowth of the same thing. The passive acts as a receiver for the active force of the same nature, and once it’s impregnated with the idea given to it by the active component, gestates and grows it into a reality as its offspring.

 The basic idea being illustrated here is the Law of 3 in 1, or the One that has 3 aspects that perform different functions in creating the same thing. This is what’s called the “3-fold nature of the mind and soul”, and the 3 dimensions that make up physical reality as a 4th (unified) whole. The stature of the higher soul is larger because it contains all three aspects of the lower soul. All of what we experience as reality is a projection of our higher mind and is designed to acquire knowledge of it “self” through the “experiences” it creates of itself. Our Soul doesn’t just create our physical body as a specialized design that it then inhabits as a means of experiencing itself in the physical world, it’s the One creating the appearance of reality as a mirror image and projection of itself as both an inner and outer, and as a self and other. We can only “know” our true self through our “whole reality” which is necessary in order to create experiences of our self. We are not a body as a single aspect within a greater whole, but the whole itself. We are the one creating reality as a mental projection (step down process) from a parallel plane through the universal principle of polarity.

The Soul creates itself as a reality through the principle of complementary opposites that form 3 planes simultaneously as an upper and lower that are brought together in a unified state by a “middle”, and forms an inner and outer reality that are unified as an “experience”. This idea is illustrating what’s referred to as the Tetragrammaton in Esoteric Sciences, and the Tetrad (4 as a cube) in Sacred Geometry, both of which illustrate the process of creation. This is the process through which we’re “seeded” with an idea from our Higher Self (will), which is translated into a physical form in our imagination and developed with attributes and sensations, to produce an outer reality of the same nature. Everything comes about as a polar movement between passive and active aspects of the same thing, where an invisible idea as a frequency (pattern) is transmitted through the ether and received by the third-eye of its complementary aspect, and forms an internal image that becomes active as a blueprint for creating on that plane. The Will of our Higher Self forms the basis for all of our thoughts which are developed through sensory detail and give rise to complementary emotions, which form the basis for all material activity.  

We can’t experience our self while in a unified state, and so duality is necessary in order to create a 3-D reality that we use as the means of experiencing ourselves in relation with our self as another and a greater whole. The ancients were obsessed with the “soul” because in reality, the Soul is all there is. Our Soul, like our mind, has three inherent aspects that all perform different functions in creating the same thing. This idea is commonly represented by a divine being with 3 heads or faces, usually with a larger center one, and two smaller ones on each side, and in Sacred Geometry by the triangle or pyramid, which has 3 faces and points, one of which is exalted in the center, and two which are parallel to each other on the same plane as its foundation. The upper forms the basis for the lower and descends into the lower sphere of consciousness through a right angle. The upper is symbolized by a vertical line or column (phallic) and the lower is symbolized by a horizontal line that’s the reflection of the upper. An “L” or “V” shape is used to represent the same line formed as a reflection or shadow image of itself.

How the Mind Creates Reality – The Nature of Perception and Experience

There has been so much confusion with the explosion of quantum physics and Mind Sciences as to the true nature of what we call “reality”.  One of the most fundamental problems we have is people tend to think of the material world of matter and form as a fixed, objective, and stationary construct where every person (mind) is somehow perceiving and experiencing the “same thing”. Because of this, we don’t realize the true power of our mind to shape reality, or the true nature of the relationship between the mind and matter. Naturally, the entire material world is only “perceivable” through or because of the mind, and the mind as a field of information is what “operates” both the brain and the body, which is a mechanism for processing sensory information to produce what we experience as coherent and consistent version of reality. When we say that the “mind creates its own reality”, we’re usually not referring to the idea that it literally manifests the physical world that appears to be outside of us as well as in us, although there’s certainly an argument for this idea also, but what it means in the general sense is that the mind “interacts” with matter energetically, and through resonance and sympathetic induction, alters it’s outward appearance and how it “organizes” in terms of attributes, qualities, and characteristics, producing a variation that still indigenous to the same overall theme as a new version or possibility. All vibration acts to form a pattern as the electromagnetic field that organizes matter into a distinct form that’s then animated with a form of personality where it outwardly displays distinct qualities and characteristics. The pattern inherent in a frequency is more of a “theme” or general “range of expression” rather than a distinct and fixed shape that exists more as a specific vibration within that frequency. As we vibrate to a certain frequency, we act to connect with that same frequency in everything else through “sympathetic induction”. This is where the subtle energy that’s vibrating and shaping one form, literally “enters into” another form vibrating at the same frequency or within near proximity (where it can still be drawn in), and “affects it” by “altering its state”. The two aspects of the same frequency then begin vibrating in harmony, forming into the same “type of pattern” as a cohesive and coherent idea. All of what we call a frequency, which is a range of vibration as a kind of scale that moves between extremes of the same overall idea or theme, exists within other frequencies that together make up what we think of as the natural world as an ecosystem. All of what we call “material form” is actually composed of mostly empty space as “natural forces” that charge particles and organize them into patterns as a “living system”. Energy from all around readily move into and through the empty space holding matter together, influencing it in a way that alters how it organizes the system in terms of what’s made active and inactive, and how it changes in its “appearance” while still maintaining the same overall thematic or archetypal shape. So we don’t necessarily change the outer shape of things, but rather which attributes and qualities are active, called forth expressing, and which ones become latent and recede, and how it behaves and expresses in relationship to us as a result.

        In the Biblical story of the creation of the natural world, called the “original creation”, the material world was formed from the “spoken word”, but left unfinished. Humans, who are gifted with higher capacities of the mind for creating, were left with the task of “finishing it” by creating it in a unique and individual fashion. While the material world and the lower mind of our animal body appears to exist in what we could call an objective, stationary and neutral state, where everybody is seeing the same “basic thing”, it actually exists as a wave or “field of information” that has an infinite amount of potential that’s all thematic in nature as archetypes of various sorts, where every single mind that enters into relationship with it, filters out certain aspects, while selecting and enhancing others, forming it into a new and unique variation. While a tree exists as the same type of tree to everyone who views it, how they “experience” that tree, will be different every time. No two people experience the same thing in the same way. It’s always different based on how their mind forms it by resonating with it. All energy as vibration contains an archetypal pattern as a field of information that forms an archetypal theme that has an infinite amount of possibilities for creating based on how the information is sorted, recomposed into new formula’s that produce new variations of the same thing. All material form exists as both a particle and a wave. Every object is accompanied by a subtle field of energy as the consciousness that organizes it through a “self-organizing mechanism” that “in-forms” it, holds it together as an operating system, and animates it with life. It’s the “empty space” that organizes the particles into a working system of some sort. These natural forces as electromagnetic fields have no real physical properties, and so the “mind” as individual consciousness moves freely into the mind and subtle energy of everything else, influencing it to a new vibration that alters how it appears to that mind. We are always creating (or recreating) everything to be in our image and of our likeness. So we’re not necessarily literally creating our own reality, but rather transforming the existing reality that we all share as a part of this dimension, into a new and unique variation through our very perception of it. Our mind vibrates to a certain frequency that has a thematic pattern inherent in it that forms the energetic structure of our mind as a mental paradigm. This paradigm acts as a holographic model that resonates with everything around it, shape-shifting it to be of a congruent nature as a way of creating a consistent experience of reality in an ongoing fashion. We can only perceive, conceive of, or comprehend in our outer world what matches our inner world as the thematic structure of our mind. If it doesn’t match it or it exists outside of our paradigm (frequency), then we literally “can’t see it”. We can look straight at it and not comprehend it. We can only comprehend and therefore experience what we can blend with energetically, become one with in kind, and influence to be of the same idea as we are. All reality in this sense is a matter of perception.

       As we “perceive something”, meaning we form an experience of it, comes by way of our ability to influence it into a new variation of itself that’s a correspondence to our model of the world. So as we’re perceiving and thereby experiencing the outer world, we’re constantly in the process of reforming it to be like us, of the same thematic structure as we are. Perception operates according to the same principles that govern DNA and all physical manifestation. You have a field of information as the potential for producing a form, and based on what’s “turn on” and made active, and what’s “turned off” and made latent, determines the nature of the form. As we resonate with something, our field of information as our mind vibrating at a specific frequency with a thematic pattern, enters into the energy field of the form we’re interacting with, forming an “interference pattern” out of “shared components and qualities”, where what’s of a like nature is amplified and embellished, and what’s not is canceled out and diminished, and we “alter the pattern” that’s producing the form changing how it appears outwardly. It literally changes appearance or shape-shifts by conforming to our mental paradigm and ideas about it. While the overall thematic form remains the same, the active components as attributes and qualities are reformulated to where what’s actively expressing changes not only how it looks, but also how it behaves. As we reformulate the basic nature of something through our energetic interaction, we change how it’s being and what it’s doing.  This is very easy to see and understand by how we can “change” how people see themselves and behave through how we treat them and how they treat us. All perception is formed through what we call a “filtering system”, usually comprised of values, beliefs, preferences, tendencies, memories, temperament, and so on, that together form a dynamic model that acts to reorganize any situation or reality by abstracting some parts while eliminating others. We’re not only always working on a limited amount of information gathered through a form of natural selection, but we then organize that small amount of information into the idea that we want it to be, believe it is, or expect it to be. What we believe to be true forms our experiences. What we value in a situation forms our process of selection. We reshape anything in whatever way we need to in order to form the interpretation we want it to have. How we interpret things to give them meaning, shapes how we experience them by the story we form in our mind about them. As we walk into any situation, we are programmed with a natural selection process for what we notice and abstract and we don’t and ignore. This is very easy to see and understand when we simply realize that five people who are a part of the same event or reality will “experience” that event in a unique and different way from all the others, often telling such diverse stories about it that you can’t even tell it was the same event. Ask them about it and you’ll get five completely different accounts about what happened, what it meant, what resulted from it, what went on, what others were doing, what was important about it, what they took away from it, and so on. So even though we all share a common reality, how we experience that reality is very unique and diverse for each one of us. No two people experience the same thing in the same way. No two people look at the same idea the same way, we all have a unique take on it based on how we’re filtering it through our mental paradigm as our vibratory frequency to reorganize the general information involved and available to everyone into a unique pattern.

       Quantum physics has demonstrated that matter is influenced by the mind of the person interacting with it. That whatever the intention is for an experiment, whatever it’s meant to prove or disapprove, influences and determines how matter “shows up and behaves”. The consciousness of the individual enters into matter, influencing it with its thoughts about it, and stimulates it into new forms with new properties and behaviors. The individual viewing an event, and the event itself as it appears to the viewer, are a part of the “same thing”. The mind literally produces the results it wants to or has an intention and expectation for. This is why several different quantum physicists (or scientists of any kind) all conducting similar experiments will come to different conclusions. Where the only way to really know if something is real or not, is if two or more people “appear to be seeing” the same thing. And even when they do appear to be seeing the same thing, it’ll vary to some degree based on the paradigm of each individual which is what’s forming their perception, interpretation and experience of it. Understanding the true relationship between mind and matter allows us to understand the true nature of Alchemy where we realize that the only way to change how the outer world appears to us, is by changing ourselves. If it still appears the same, it’s because nothing has actually changed in terms of our paradigm or mental and emotional state. Likewise, we can’t really change others in the direct sense of the idea, but by changing ourselves, we change how they appear to us and how they affect us. It’s only by changing our thoughts that we change our reality as a correspondence. The way to tell when you’re truly growing, developing new aspects of yourself, and transforming by altering your vibration, is due to the fact that you start looking at things differently, seeing something different in the same thing, and the way the outer world and others appear to you starts changing accordingly. As long as we hold the same frequency based on the same beliefs, values, preferences, memories, and thematic life story, the outer world appears stagnate and methodical. Nothing changes. By changing our mind, we change ourselves and how we perceive (create) others and our life. So in this way, we are definitely the one producing our perception and experience of reality. All of life as we are capable of knowing it is a personal creation of a common theme. Dr. Linda Gadbois        Integrative Mind-Body Health Consultant and Spiritual Mentor  

Decoding a Mystery – Interpreting the Symbolic Language of Higher Knowledge

All spiritual knowledge is communicated in symbolic terms as a harmonious universal language of numbers, letters, sound, images, colors, modes of consciousness, and so on, that require interpretation in order to be obtained and understood in practical terms. This is because all true spiritual knowledge exits as universal laws (both energetic and material) and come as archetypal principles that lend themselves to a universal application to produce a unique variation each time it’s interpreted and applied to create. The most fundamental law is the Law of the Monad, Dyad, and Triad (trinity), that basically says every mind or sphere of consciousness vibrates at a unique frequency, and can only resonate with that same frequency (perception of reality) in everything else.

As we encounter other forms of consciousness, we “enter into relationship with it” by forming an interference pattern (Dyad), which, through a process of adaptation and modification, alters the shared frequency to form a new one by canceling out (contradicting) some aspects, while amplifying others, shaping it into a unique variation. This unique variation formed first as an internal concept, visualization, or working model, results from the coupling of two opposite (masculine and feminine) and complementary waves which produce an offspring as a harmonious combination of both.

Our mind exists as a mental paradigm or thematic model that vibrates at a certain frequency. All vibration is an invisible wave that acts as a carrier-wave for information of a certain frequency that exists in a purely potential state. This vibrating wave of information as a frequency also has a ‘self-organizing mechanism” inherent in it as life-force energy that constructs (grows and organizes it into a pattern) a holographic form out of it. Information that has the potential for building realities exists in an unformed state in the atmosphere around us and is available to be “absorbed” by another bio-field (mind in a body), modifying its vibration through a process of adaptation into a specialized variation, where it’s then formed into a “personal reality” by how it’s first imagined and built into an existing, ongoing story or version of reality in a congruent manner, and how it’s “applied” and utilized in order to create in the material sense.

All universal knowledge exists in its potential state (unformed) as Law and Information that’s purely creative in nature and requires interpretation in order to be known and used as tools for self-creation by creating realities out of it through the intuitive perception of it. Each individual will interpret the same symbolically  encoded information differently, based not only on their mental model (vibratory frequency), level of maturity, personal knowledge and education, stage in life, circumstances and life situations, method of utilizing, and so on, but also based on their “breadth of knowledge” of the sciences and arts. It requires an in-depth knowledge of multiple disciplines (sacred geometry, mathematics, numbers, letters, words, pronunciations, and analogies that are of the same idea or nature) in order to be interpreted accurately.

As humans, we are all bestowed with choice and free will and the ability to willfully obtain the knowledge necessary through devoted study of the Sacred Arts and Sciences to be able to not only form our own interpretation and creative formula, but also to use that knowledge within our life in a willful manner to create by way of it. If we lack the knowledge to interpret information that comes as a mathematical formula, geometric shapes that represent scientific relationships, corresponding colors, sounds, icons, ideas, themes, etc., then the information as higher knowledge isn’t “obtainable”, and remains “secretive”. This is the basis of the “Mysteries” as “Secret Knowledge” that’s virtually unobtainable by the profane and untutored. A single geometric shape with specific attributes, qualities and characteristics, represents laws, ideas, and scientific relationships that are mathematical, psychological, philosophical, biological, and have semantic significance, that actually provide us with a whole formula as a process for creating a reality that brings us deeper and more profound realizations into the true nature of our creative abilities and the energetic substratum of what we call reality.

Because spiritual knowledge is communicated in the symbolic language of Universal Laws and Archetypal Principles, it requires us to utilize and develop our “intuitive capacity” to discern it. We discern things intuitively by forming a chain-of-association as natural relationships that exist between all ideas of the same nature (frequency). All frequency has natural patterns in it as the form, behaviors, and reality of that frequency. We have exquisitely sophisticated scientific systems that represent Universal Laws and the true method for decoding them. For example, the Qabalah, exists as a hierarchical mapping of Law and Principles in both a descending and ascending format, that corresponds to the key of the Tarot (Hermetic texts), which can be used to interpret them. The Qabalah has 11 Sephirot  (10 visible, 1 invisible), and corresponds to the 22 principles of the major arcane of the Tarot, where the first 11 (0-10) are established as spirit descending into the material plane through our formative conditioning or original creation, and the second 11 principles representing ascending back into spirit as a “rebirth” that’s a willful process of self-creation and transformation.

Both the Tarot and the Qabalah form a natural series of correspondences thru letters, numbers, attributes and relationships with numerous other scientific systems, such as Sacred Geometry, the Chakra system of the body, the multiple dimensions of the causal, mental, astral, etheric, and physical planes, as well as colors of the light spectrum, musical notes and scales, seasons, directions, Moon cycles, rhythms, etc. Through an intuitive chain of association as natural relationships you can interpret a symbolic idea to find the laws and principles it represents and obtain the information that’s encoded within it. All spiritual knowledge requires us to use our intuitive abilities to decipher it, and our creative abilities to utilize it by applying it. Any “knowledge” that’s not applied in order to create, is useless theory and a form of vain entertainment. A person who preaches and knows in theoretical terms, but doesn’t practice or creatively apply through experimentation, doesn’t benefit from the information, doesn’t know for sure if it’s true in terms of actually producing what it claims to, and doesn’t ingrain it as an experience that becomes a memory as the fundamental nature of the soul, which is eternal in nature and carried forward. We only truly “obtain” what we bring into practice by becoming one with it, providing the channel through which it expresses to form an experience of it as a perception of reality. Knowledge provides the theoretical basis for self-mastery that allows us to utilize our ability to self-create and determine the nature of our experiences through the relationship we form with all of life.

Nobody can do your work for you. Nobody can “give you” an interpretation or tell you what things mean. You always have to decide that for yourself, and are ultimately completely responsible for your own decisions and all the actions that result from your decisions. While interpretations made by others can teach you “how to interpret” symbolic language, the process and method used, so you can hone your own skills, they can never give you answers or tell you in a factual manner what something means. Meaning in and of itself is relative. Everything means something different to every person perceiving it. Our ability to utilize information in a creative fashion depends on our knowledge base and what meaning ideas have for us.

The most fundamental form of spiritual development comes through a desire for Higher Knowledge that engages us in a constant form of self-education through a devoted study of spiritual sciences and the Sacred Arts. Nowhere in our modern day society is this knowledge a part of our formative education. Only those who have a true desire to truly “know” pursue it and form a devoted practice of intuitive learning, while creatively applying it to their everyday life in order to self-create by way of it. All education in the most basic sense, like all healing and perceiving, is something “we do within ourselves”. It’s not acquired from someone else outside of us, and requires our interest, desire, connection, and ability to absorb it as a working concept, while developing the practical ability to apply and utilize it. We are always the one educating ourselves, and developing ourselves by becoming one with the ideas that we act as a channel of expression for. We are all ultimately responsible for the consequences of all our decisions and actions, and how we use our capacity of choice, imagination, and willpower to intentionally self-create.

All of what we call “secret” or “hidden knowledge” is only so because it’s written in a symbolic code using universal symbols. Our knowledge of this universal symbolic language has been lost through time with the onslaught of organized religion and the quest of the powers that be to “own” Higher Knowledge and keep it from the average person (burning the Alexandria Library) and brutally murdering those who possessed spiritual powers (the Great Acquisition) as a form of intimidation, that secured their position as the “keepers of the Light”. Throughout the centuries that followed, knowledge of the Spiritual Arts and Sciences, formerly known as Magic, was virtually lost except to a few initiates that kept it alive through “secret brotherhoods”, encoded texts and allegories, and covenants of various sorts. By learning the universal language of symbols, numbers, and letters, we can interpret any idea or formula to find it’s hidden (actual) meaning, while simultaneously gaining the “formula” for applying it to create miracles (the science of magic) by manipulating matter using our mind.

Spiritual Knowledge is Laws that are Encoded in Symbolic Language: “Spiritual Principles are Creative Tools for Conscious Evolution”

decahedron metatrons cube Spiritual knowledge, unlike most things, requires you to seek it out through an inner desire for it, which intuitively communicates its knowledge through the language of imagery and geometry requiring you to acquire a broad range of knowledge in order to intuitively interpret it.  It’s not stated in plain terms as something specific, because it can’t be. If it is stated as something specific, then it’s really simply one aspect, or metaphorical way of looking at it that simply introduces an idea as a concept into your mind as a form of seed, that comes alive and begins growing as a continuous process of unfolding as a dynamic series of a chain-of-associated and correlated ideas that lead you deeper and deeper into related ideas as a kind of vastness that’s ultimately connected and correlated with everything else. The entire natural world (universe) is all governed by the same handful of laws as invisible forces that organize, form, and operate the material world. All true spiritual knowledge is the practical understanding of universal laws that are active and creative in every single aspect of the manifest world.

 
Just as the fundamental laws are all connected and interdependent as a form of growth process that moves systematically through stages and phases of development, the knowledge represented by these laws do the same thing. Spiritual knowledge as universal laws remain alive and in a constant state of fluctuation as a continuous evolution of the same fundamental ideas going through numerous spontaneous transformations as a dynamic relationship that constantly expresses in new ways, as new variations of the same idea in every moment based on how they’re being perceived, interpreted, and applied. The spiritual realm of pure energy is not fixed and formed like the material realm, but exists in a purely potential state as infinite possibilities for the same idea (pattern) to be formed and expressed based on what individual mind tunes into it, serves to conceive of it, and forms it into a personalized version by how they imagine it and adapt it to their current conditions and circumstances to produce an actual experience as the physical equivalent.


Ideas are principles that exist as archetypes (memory as dynamic living patterns) that are represented by geometric shapes (form, function & behavior) that are mathematical in nature (exist in relationships) and form a living entity (personality), imbued with distinct attributes, qualities and characteristics as it’s innate constitution. The constitution of an animated being has a form of personality in it that display distinct attitudes and behaviors, and undergo natural operations as biological processes that create in the physical world through myths or stories the personality naturally tells by how it interacts in relationship to everything else.

 
Principles as philosophical mathematics, structure the material realm determining how it naturally functions. The form biological matter takes on, determines what it does through natural behaviors and how it does it as a form of style or personality. Form that’s structured and animated through life-force energy, functions in very distinct ways through a kind of personality, which not only determines what processes it performs, but the quality of consciousness as characteristics that form traits for “how it does it” in a somewhat unique fashion. These principles as life-forms remain in a constant state of growth and evolution because in every moment they’re entering into relationship with everything else around it that modifies it by exchanging information as an energetic form of metabolism, reforming it to express in new ways through different combinations of information that it integrates that reconfigures it. All physical matter, though it appears solid and consistent in its behavior, remains in a constant state of regeneration that comes by exchanging information between the inner core and the outer environment, which equalizes the internal to match the external. The molecular structure of the material entity is constantly conforming to its environment as the means of survival and growth within or by way of the environment, that’s the most basic function of evolution.

birthHuman beings, which are bestowed with a higher mind that’s creative in nature, and have the ability to modify the environment as a means of surviving and functioning within it, only exchanges energy with what’s of a similar vibration or quality of consciousness with everything around it through resonance. It forms union with ideas that can be shaped into it’s model of the world in a congruent fashion and used to tell their primary life’s story. Vibration as ideas that are too different and exist in a range that can’t be processed by our vibratory frequency, doesn’t resonate with us, and isn’t integrated as a means of modifying our vibration. Because of this law, the law of sympathies and antipathies, we tend to only grow and evolve through absorption and assimilation of the same frequency (range), and only occasionally move into different frequencies.

 
When we do grow in a significant manner, it’s usually not through deliberate intentions (though it can be), but by having change thrown on us through changing life circumstances that force us to resort to alternative means because our entire life situation changes, and new influences and processes come into play, that we have to adjust to by changing our most basic routines that form our daily lifestyle, which act to break the pattern set by the old routine. Frequencies can be thought of as creative patterns, where we live out of the same tendencies and personality traits that keep repeatedly creating the same type of situations that tell the same type of story over and over throughout our life. When we evolve into a new frequency, we act to initiate and actively participate in creating a new type of story that employ new aspects of our character not being used when telling the previous story.

 
Spiritual knowledge, unlike conventional knowledge, requires intuitive development as a means of sensing and interpreting the symbolic language it’s written in. Conventional knowledge is given to us in written, verbal language as already interpreted for us. We don’t have to form our interpretation as a unique and personal version, but simply have to accept it verbatim as knowledge itself, without ever having to think for ourselves as the means for interpreting it that transform it into a personalized version that’s unique to us. Because spiritual knowledge requires us to interpret it intuitively, we not only learn simultaneously “how to think for ourselves”, but we have to form a concept of it in our imagination that turns it into a reality as a practical application as an inner experience that becomes a form of virtual memory that acts as a form of blueprint for using within our daily lives in order to consciously create reality. Laws and principles are the tools for “how to” create life.

atom
In order to use an idea, we have to have a working understanding of it. We can only understand what we can conceptualize as an internal representation that forms it as a possible outer reality or actual material object. So information that’s communicated symbolically teaches us how to think by imagining, how to conceptualize by applying to a real life scenario, and integrates the information into our paradigm as a form of virtual experience that becomes an actual memory. As we form ideas into realities that operate according to natural laws, they’re formed into memories that can be recollected, accessed and used for reference, and used as a creative tool from that point on. We acquire the information as a “paradigm shift” by internalizing it to bring it from a thought into an actual form that operates in a specific and consistent way. Knowledge as experience that forms a memory becomes a permanent and natural part of how we feel, perceive and interpret life events. It becomes a built-in process of how we naturally think.

 
All spiritual development is personal development as the knowledge of laws, integrated into the mind to evolve the soul, that are brought into practice to form our daily lifestyle and natural behaviors as the primary means of personal transformation. Only knowledge that’s applied and lived serves to reform us as an evolving creation. Laws and principles, which pertain to all of life, provide us with the creative tools for shaping our life by “living them”. By how we utilize them to make everyday decisions and direct our own behavior. Laws as spiritual technology provide us with the means to grow and evolve ourselves into higher levels of consciousness and vibrate at a higher frequency, as harmonious with Nature and at one with all of life.

Decoding Sacred Geometry: The Tetragrammaton – “How the Mind Manifests Personal Reality”

Sacred geometry communicates the universal language of Universal Law, vibration and potential that impregnates matter with an animated form. God speaks to us in the language of mathematics, not as a “bean-counting” process that most have been taught, but as a philosophical system that communicates knowledge as universal laws through the relationship between spirit and matter as structure, order, and function. Shapes represent ideas as forms that have distinct attributes that undergo a natural growth process of “expression” that actualizes the idea as a corresponding reality.  Geometric forms put together as a composite image provide us with formulas that have an infinite number of interpretations that span multiple dimensions as the “same thing” manifesting on multiple planes at the same time. The key to decoding these formulas lies in the Law of Analogies and Correspondences that allows us to identify the same “nature” (vibratory frequency as a structuring mechanism) within different forms much like a system of classification based on attributes and qualities that form physical characteristics as a personality with distinct behaviors inherent in them that can take on numerous “outer forms”.

Sacred geometry speaks the language of laws as the energetic nature of the universe (the stuff of life) which is consciousness itself. Anytime we’re speaking of “energy” and “vibration”, we’re speaking of laws as the information necessary to “in-form” matter, shaping it while simultaneously animating it through a personality that has natural behaviors inherent in it that determine the reality it exists within as its mode for self-expression. The “quality of consciousness” that inhabits form is demonstrated through its natural behavior or how it functions in an automatic fashion. Consciousness itself operates according to law, and in human form is comprised of 3-aspects of a 4-fold nature. We commonly refer to these three aspects as the purely spiritual (energetic) aspect of higher or super consciousness, that forms the two lower (material) minds as the subconscious and self-conscious aspects that are predominate within the physical realm. The unification of these three modes of consciousness forms the physical reality of the 3 and 4-dimensional world. The subconscious mind is the aspect of the mind that we share with the animal kingdom and all of life commonly referred to as the instinctual field or greater mind, and the self-conscious aspect is a purely human feature that endows us with our creative abilities. Our most notable creative ability is the ability to self-create and be self-determined.

So to understand the Tetragrammaton, we have to look at the four primary laws that it represents that are the primary laws governing subtle energy as a dynamic living matrix of interwoven vibratory frequencies that underlies and ultimately forms the material realm as its culminated expression. The Tetragrammaton, or Tetrad, is represented by the number 4 which is symbolized by a square or diamond (sideways square), which is symbolic of material reality as the earth (material) plane. Naturally, it also represents the four elements which are the primary laws as natural processes that underlie all of material reality and nature. These four primary laws, which form the basis for material reality, are also the primary laws governing the astral, mental, and etheric or Akashic planes, which underlie, permeate and organize the material realm. While symbolic ideas as laws lend themselves to an infinite number of interpretations within multiple planes of existence, here I’ll simply give one interpretation as the basic laws of energy itself, which of course are the same primary laws that govern our own mind. In order to use something as a tool for creating within our own lives, we have to understand it. We only understand what we can conceptualize as a working model of some sort. The only purpose of my descriptions here are to provide you with a concept that makes it understandable and therefore utilizable in the practical sense.

The Tetragrammaton symbolizes the full expression of all the laws that precede and comprise it, while still containing the potential for all laws proceeding out of it as a continued growth process. The 4 laws it represents is simply where a vibration as an archetypal pattern first forms in the material plane as an actual manifestation. The laws proceeding out of it are the process necessary for growing and evolving the initial form into a series of higher or more complex forms as variations of itself. The Monad (1), Dyad (2), and Triad (3), represent the laws of resonance, sympathetic induction, and coherence. A vibration that exists in polarity as dual aspects of itself that form a range between them that allows movement between two poles that forms a frequency as a “range of expression”.

A frequency can be thought of as a “wave-form” that contains a basic pattern as an archetypal idea or theme, which exists in its purely potential form as an infinite number of possibilities for creating the same basic idea. This frequency as a “state of being” (internal) resonates with the same frequency (state) in everything else (external). The frequency as a vibratory patterning or cluster of complementary vibrations only forms resonance with other vibrations within the same range or wave-length. Anything outside of its range, it fails to resonate with (affect) or acts to repel or cast off. When it comes into near proximity with the same vibration as its complementary opposite, it forms resonance with it, which stimulates that same “state” in another, calling it forth in them as the basis for their interaction. Resonance, as sympathetic induction is where a vibration enters into the same vibration in an outside form and activates it through a form of synchronized movement as mind entrainment where they begin moving and acting as one. This frequency as our mind-field is also our perceptual lens which determines what we see in others and our environment. We only “see” (readily recognize and stands out) what is of the same vibration or state of being as we are, and can therefore be used to tell the same story as a joint reality. Whatever is of a different frequency, we don’t notice in the real sense, or it becomes apart of the backdrop in a situation.


The spirit as a unified field (Monad), separates from itself forming polar opposites (Dyad) that are complementary aspects (serve to stimulate each other) of the same nature (frequency), then acts “on itself” in another (through their shared qualities) or the outer world, blending with the qualities they share in common (forming an interference pattern) to create an experience of itself as a variation (new pattern) or new possibility. The spirit as an electrical charge programs particles turning them into a wave-form as plasma (astral light) which forms the essence of matter as a unified body. This electrical charge, programs all particles with the same frequency that unites a multitude of particles into a wave-form as being of the same “nature”. This nature as properties that form a pattern (vibration), unite the multitude of particles to move in a wave-form as a unified field of intelligence (information). They operate as if they’re one, because they become one through the information they share as their energetic state. This astral substance as electrified particles forms the astral body as the soul, which then enters into a material body as a fetus, and develops the fetus according to the same nature as the soul which impregnates and forms it through a form of spiritual (energetic) DNA. This bonds together the spirit as the mind, with the soul as the material mind (essence) and the body as the physical formation or expression of the spirit and soul. They’re bonded together through resonance because they share the same programming as a frequency. In this way, the soul enters into the physical body, becoming one with it and experiencing itself “as” the body. The soul’s vibration is modified to some degree by forming coherence with the body or physical DNA.

The mind-spirit and soul essence, which is a field of electromagnetic energy that permeates, energizes and envelops the body, resonates with the body, entering into it and forming coherence with it. The body acts as an antenna and conduit for the spirit-soul. The spirit which lacks form, yet contains all the information necessary to “in-form” matter is formed into a local energy field of the individual mind through sympathetic induction, that forms coherence (becomes of the same nature) while circulating in a circular motion around the body, mingling with the energy in its immediate environment, taking in and absorbing what’s of the same frequency, digesting and integrating it, then discharging or putting off the emanation of that frequency as a form of broadcasting while simultaneously recycling energy that has become obsolete or is no longer within the frequency range necessary to bond it to the overall system.

The mind as the energy field of the body is undergoing a constant form of evolution as an accumulative process that “builds up” information through a metabolic process of intake, assimilation and discharge, following the same principles that govern the regenerative processes of digesting food, drinking liquids, and breathing air. Just as we breathe the air around us, exchanging particles, some of which we assimilate and others we eliminate, that become the building blocks of the physical body through cellular regeneration that is always forming itself out of the same material substances as its environment, maintaining equilibrium within the atmosphere it exists within. Through this same metabolic process we absorb and integrate the energy around us as qualities of consciousness that modify our frequency to adapt to our environment as a form of “mind-building”. In order to determine (intentionally create) the frequency of our own mind, we have to either place ourselves in the proper environment with the type of people and activities we want to be influenced by (literally) by becoming “like them”, or we have to be able to self-generate the quality of consciousness we desire to posses through inner means, and thereby nourish ourselves with a particular mind-set that deflects all contradictory forms of perceiving and thinking. We are always developing ourselves to either be “like” others (relate), or to be the “opposite” of others (contrast).

The Tetragrammaton, or Tetrad, represented by the square or the number 4, which is symbolic of the four dimensions of the earth plane or material reality, which is the full expression of the principles preceding it that emerged out of the Monad as a form of growth process, gives us a formula for how to “self-create” as a relationship and energetic exchange with everything outside of and around us. It’s the culmination of 1, 2, and 3, as the Monad (mind), Dyad (polarity as division or regeneration of the Monad), and Triad (offspring as reality), unified through a metabolic process of absorption, assimilation, and elimination. The Monad which exists in polarity as opposites that stimulate each other, divides and separates from itself as a form of mental projection, then perceives only what’s of the same nature (patterning) as itself in everything else, and acts to stimulate that same nature in others, activating it and calling it forth through it’s perception, which enters into relationship with itself in the other (outside world), connected by the same quality of consciousness, and then creates a joint reality out of the shared qualities that form the basis for their interaction. They interact and “act out” a dynamic that develops the shared state of mind into an experience, which they then acquire as a form of memory that adjusts their vibration accordingly, strengthening that same quality and the dynamic used to express it, in both people.

Our vibration (mind-set) resonates with the same vibration in others, and enters into the field of another affecting them by vibrating them, causing them to feel an internal reaction to us. This interaction of the same vibration as an inward aspect resonating with the same outer aspect forms what quantum physics refers to as an interference pattern, which takes the common elements of both vibrations and forms them into a new pattern as a unique variation of the same elements (nature) that have been reformulated (form coherence). This “shared reality” is first created inwardly by how the interaction stimulates an inner, imagined reality as a personal experience, that’s then reflected or projected outward as the reality created through their behavioral interaction as the expression of their relationship. This frequency as shared qualities developed into a behavioral dynamic forms the basis for how they behave in relationship with one another as a constant an ongoing form of stimulus-response as cause and effect, where the effect then becomes the cause that stimulates the other in a like manner by reflecting back to them their own consciousness (through an equal reaction) that stimulates them with their own energy, which forms a chain-reaction of cause and effect.

Vibration is consciousness as information that structures matter into living patterns. These mental patterns as our paradigm or “model of the world” form our perceptual lens through which we view the world and we only “see” in others and our external world what matches our pattern, or the elements that we can reshape into the pattern necessary to continue telling our story about things. This allows us to create a consistent experience of reality shaped by the meaning we give things. The meaning we give things forms the story we tell about them, which creates on three levels simultaneously; it means something about us (Monad), about others (Dyad), and about the way the world is (Triad)).

4 element

A vibratory frequency as a conscious pattern in-forms matter through attributes and qualities that give it characteristics as a form of personality that has behaviors inherent in it that you naturally act out as a story-line that you “live” as a “life-theme”, or greater pattern. Whatever vibration we exist as, determines the story we live out as our basic mode of perception, that’s produced naturally and automatically through our personality and how we act. Our perception alone, as an interpretation, stimulates that same vibration as a corresponding pattern to our interpretation as a primary means of re-organizing it into a new pattern. What we “see” in others, which is always a direct reflection of “whom” and “how” we are in terms of sharing the same nature, we simultaneously act to bring out in others. Our perception re-interprets them to be “like us”. Through our perception of them, we remake them in our “own image” and with our likeness. We assign them the same qualities that we ourselves possess. We tell a story about them as an interpretation that fits them into our story about others and the way things are, that simultaneously means the same thing about us in relationship with our own creation. Because of this, what someone says about another, says very little about the other person, but merely acts to reveals themselves.

Many find this idea somewhat confusing because they fail to recognize that a “pattern” as a nature or personality that “tells a story” as the means for creating a reality as an experience, has multiple “roles” in that pattern necessary to live it out as a behavioral dynamic. Because we favor one role, position, or perspective in an overall theme, and we act to naturally perceive and attract to those who ideally play the other roles in the same story-line, we don’t see it as “seeing ourselves” in another through the story we tell “about” them, because we think being the “same” means playing the same role. In the reality seeing ourselves in another means they are of the same pattern or nature as us and act naturally to play out the same story with us. We can build them into our story-line as a natural interpretation of their behaviors and how they interact with us to act out the same dynamic. As an example, someone who’s always a “victim” in their own stories, doesn’t attract other victims, they attract someone who will “victimize” them, and in doing so, work together to create a joint-reality that tells the same type of story. We’re always noticing, reacting to and using as the means for telling our story the elements and qualities in others that play the different roles necessary. Our perceptual lens is a filtering mechanism that brings to our attention only what is of the same story-telling capabilities as we are.

In terms of evolution of our mind and soul, as achieving a higher vibration as a higher level of consciousness, we have to first begin by recognizing ourselves in terms of our own paradigm or “model of the world” that forms our basic perceptions and interpretations for how we “see” the world and the story we’re always in the process of telling by living it, and gain realization through self-awareness of our own character and tendencies. Through self-realization and “owning” our own stuff, or accepting it without justifying it or projecting it onto others as blame that denies it, we can become aware of how we act to create our life experiences through a form of “default” or automated tendencies, and decide instead who and how we want to be, and what type of story we choose to tell by acting it out. We can then realize the qualities we need to possess as part of our character in order to naturally tell a new kind of story that creates a new experience of ourselves that change how “we sense ourselves”, which reshapes our identity.

We can consciously set rules for ourselves as a moral code of conduct that we hold ourselves to that serves to set guidelines that transform tendencies that are ultimately destructive and harmful, into ones that are constructive and beneficial in nature. We can begin the creative process of choosing our character and disciplining ourselves by utilizing our will to produce those choices as our actual reality. By changing our attitude and behavior, we change our life as a correspondence. By taking a different perspective and acting different, we become different. By thinking and imagining in new ways, we begin perceiving new realities that were always present as latent potential in the old realities that we simply didn’t have the “eyes to see”.

ethereal body
Our perception is an interpretation as a composing mechanism that shapes our reality. By simply setting the intention to see something different in the same situation, and looking at it differently as a result, and begin realizing that we can see whatever we choose to see and set and expectation for as a result. Though it may take practice in the beginning, as we discipline ourselves to consistently see in new ways, the more we do it the easier it becomes, until it becomes natural and automatic. Once we do something until its built into the muscle and becomes automatic, and we do it without having to think about it or make a special point of it, we begin using the power of our will to reshape our reality and ourselves in relationship to our own creation. We begin mastering our ability to act “on ourselves” to intentionally “create ourselves”. We move out of default mode and begin fashioning ourselves by way of our own hand.

The basic process of self-creation, formulated through the laws of the Tetragrammaton, is always going on; it’s simply a question of whether or not we’re aware of it. It’s happening automatically (according to law) in our lives, and we can either choose to remain shrouded in ignorance of it, or we can awaken in our own lives by becoming aware of how law is operating through the very nature of our own mind. We are always the ones creating our own internal experiences in response to outer stimulus. No one else feels our feelings for us, thinks our thoughts, chooses what we focus on, or relives our memories for us. Only we do that “to” ourselves as a primary means of “programming” ourselves to that frequency.

The story we are always in the process of telling about things as our life theme, is our own creation. It’s the story we began telling about things as a way of making sense out of them as a child. We then continued telling that same story while evolving it to the perspective of an adult. By the time we become adults our story forms our basic perception as self-imposed limitations that confine us to the theme inherent in the story. Whatever idea (vibratory pattern) we embody, forms our thoughts and feelings, and connect us emotionally with everything around us that forms a analogous reality as a thematic story that we’re always in the process of perpetuating. To change our “vibration”, we need to change the nature of our life story.

Symbolic Imagery of Dreams – “Understanding the Spiritual Language of Law”

Mental freeflow
Often what confuses us when we’re attempting to interpret symbols and metaphor of various forms, is that we’ve been taught that it’s the spiritual realm that exists as symbolic to the physical realm. Yet in reality, exactly the opposite is true. The physical realm exists as the symbols or forms produced by the spiritual realm. In order to understand this further, we’d have to realize that what we call the spiritual (invisible) realm is energetic in nature. It’s energy as subtle essences or vibration that has patterns inherent in it that structures matter into distinct shapes. The form or shape something takes on reveals how it functions, operates or behaves. Form as a pattern and function are always connected in the biological world of Nature. The form something takes on reveals the laws at work and how it will naturally behave as an automated operation or form of personality or instinct. Natural laws are the invisible forces throughout nature that animate matter into various forms of biological functioning as a part of greater patterns. The form and behavior something takes on is a result of the vibratory frequency that’s forming and operating it.

cosmic doorway
Symbols, imagery, and metaphors are the language of dreams that communicate ideas. The symbolic nature of our dreams is the spiritual language of vibration that communicates whole ideas. What seems like an individual symbol is actually a part of a larger composite symbol that are all conveying or being used to express a larger or overall idea. Each aspect of the symbol is of the same “nature” as a vibratory frequency that is analogous to everything else and serves to give us deeper clues into the overall idea being conveyed. So it’s not just the forms or images themselves, but also the attributes, qualities, and characteristics they are imbued with, that are all of the same frequency as an idea (pattern that forms reality). The “key” to decoding these symbolic messages is the law of analogy and correspondences where you realize that every aspect of a symbol, image or scenario is formed by the same idea as its nature produced by a vibration that organizes astral light into symbolic realities as its expression. So all attributes, qualities and characteristics in a symbolic image or composite is significant to its interpretation and gives us deeper clues into the true idea being illustrated. All aspects are of the same “nature” as a constitution or essence.

Vibration as ideas can be classified by the form and shape they naturally take on, which reveals how they naturally function or operate. The shape of something and its attributes indicates not only an operation, but the “quality” of the operation as a personality. It reveals not only “what” it’ll do, but also “how” it will do it. Each vibratory frequency as a composite image creates a kind of formula as a calculation. Form (with all its attributes) and function always go together. This is the basis for not only sacred geometry, which is the language of law as consciousness that forms reality, but also for all the hieroglyphic and symbolic imagery of ancient cultures that communicated through ideas rather than words. It didn’t use words to describe ideas, but rather an image that represented laws that when held in the mind began unfolding into a whole series of ideas that were uniquely produced by the relationship formed by the vibratory frequency and the consciousness (vibratory frequency) of the individual beholding it. In all aspects of its interpretation, it operates by the very laws that it’s comprised of. Each interpretation of a universal idea or archetype is formed into a variation based on who’s interpreting it. The unique variation is the personal creation of the individual in relationship to that idea and how it’s applied to their everyday life as the basis for interpretation.

“A picture is worth a thousand words”

For this reason, generic interpretations or those made by others “for us” to use as a means of interpreting our own dreams or inner visions, are meaningless and can act to mislead us. The original spiritual language of symbols required an in-depth form of knowledge in order to properly interpret them. What we see in a symbol is not only a personal experience formed in our imagination, but based on our mood or emotional state (vibration), our level of consciousness in terms of wisdom, our maturity, where we’re at in our lives and how we’re adapting it, and so on. For this reason, symbols are a very dynamic language with an endless multitude of possible interpretations, understanding, and applications. Symbolic language isn’t stagnate and fixated like modern language of words are. Words are only designed to form images in our imagination. Yet the images we associate to the same words vary with each individual, and so communication by the spoken word is usually a basic form of miscommunication. Not because it’s not symbolic in and of itself, but because we don’t take this into consideration when communicating and therefore miscommunicate, often without ever even realizing that that’s what we’re doing.

Law, which is form and function, is revealed by the shape and appearance something takes on. The laws operating in that form are further expressed and demonstrated by the quality of its form in terms of its characteristics and how we “experience” them when we behold the form. This is why ideas that represent “good” always appear as beautiful, pure, and emanating; whereas ideas that are “evil” are portrayed as ugly and haggard, and dark and dingy. Notice that saints are always represented as beautiful attractive people that are glowing with a energetic vibrancy, that elicits very positive feelings in us when we look at them or exist in their presence. The attributes and qualities of a form always reveal the laws operating through that form as its vibration which also determines its behavior (as its natural function). Behavior is the animation of an innate pattern as its expression that produces an equivalent or matching outer experience. It’s how we move what’s inside as a quality of consciousness to the outside as a physical reality.

Intuition is the Law of Analogy and Correspondences
So once we realize that the spiritual realm does not exist as symbolic of the material realm, but rather quite the opposite, in that the material world exists as the symbolic representation of the energetic realm of vibration, we can connect ideas in terms of the functions inherent in them. The ideas being expressed in dreams or visions are giving us explicit instruction of some form as correlating ideas to our physical, waking experience. They are either showing us ideas being acted out in our daily life, or revealing to us what exists within our waking circumstances as potential realities that we’re not seeing, and therefore they act as guidance of some form. The key to understanding is in realizing that at the subconscious and purely spiritual level of our being, communication takes place through the symbolic language of law that can only be understood in terms of applying it through intuition. Intuition “is” the law of analogy and correspondence which connects ideas to other ideas of the same nature. It’s our natural ability to discern the spiritual world of vibration as a feeling that when held in the mind-imagination, unfolds as a corresponding series of ideas, or forms a connection to that same idea within our daily lives and how it’s being expressed in a different way.

All form is the expression of vibration as a structuring mechanism that shapes matter (astral light as essence) into form as the patterning inherent in the vibration. This patterning is a form of memory. Vibration is consciousness not only as intelligence or information necessary to form a pattern, but also as a personality that determines “how” it functions reforming it into a unique variation of the same idea. The spiritual world of consciousness exists as universal archetypes or generic ideas that are specialized into unique variations based on the channel or individual consciousness it enters into relationship with as a means of forming a physical expression.

The Field – Waveform and the Particle
This operates according to the same law as the field and particle, where the field as universal consciousness exists in a purely potential state (unformed) as an infinite number of possibilities around the same idea (memory) or basic patterning. When the individual mind tunes into that same frequency and enters into relationship with it, it resonates with whatever potential can be readily and ideally applied through it to create a personal reality as one possibility, and through a basic form of resonance, “chooses” one, draws it into itself and develops it in the imagination as a personalized version. This “selection” as a relationship that chooses then adapts, collapses the wave-form around a single idea, and the wave becomes a particle as a singular idea (one possibility) that forms a personalized reality.

The Universal Language of Law
This dynamic quality as endless variations around a single idea as its potential for expression is the creative nature of the spiritual realm. It’s not fixated into an absolute form that stagnates and limits it, but remains in an eternal state of evolution as endless transformation based on adaptation which modifies and forms it into a specialized version of itself. Law, which is the natural forces governing a physical form that produce and animate it, remain forever in a dynamic flux and flow structuring itself into patterns as formulas based on a dynamic series of relationships that it forms with a whole series of interwoven ideas, then evolves through that structured form as a continuous growth process that eventually dissolves and becomes available to form new structures of the same idea expressed in a new way.

Though people have a tendency to always try and hold these natural forces into a specific idea (usually of their own making), and classify a single interpretation as the “right” interpretation, or give their ideas to others who lack the individual knowledge (seemingly anyway) themselves to interpret the meaning of ideas and except instead someone else’s ideas for their own communication with the spiritual world. This tendency to accept someone else’s interpretation for your own is the foundation that religion was built on, and the main lure of “psychics” who offer themselves up to “have” your experiences for you while telling you what they mean. In reality you are meant to develop your own intuition and acquire the (self) knowledge necessary to make your own interpretations. Only then will you be able to receive the constant communication that’s going on all the time between your physical existence and your spiritual existence. Otherwise, we cut ourselves off from our very origins and fail completely to realize that our physical experience is the product of our spiritual self, and that all expression as our very thoughts and feelings are a product of our vibratory frequency as our spiritual essence. Spirit speaks to us in the language of law as symbolic metaphor imbued with attributes that give it character as personality that determines how it functions to produce living experience as indigenous patterns.
