Neutralizing Demonic Forces that render us Unconscious – Passions, Emotions, and Creating while in an Unconscious State

In order to understand how to work with negative forces in our life, we have to move away from the Hollywood depiction of what demons and demonic forces are, and look at them more in the light of day as we actually experience them in our day-to-day life. The entire material world is a part of the Astral Plane which acts as a magnetic fluid and medium for what we experience as emotions, passions, and ideas combined with a strong emotional component that make them seem very compelling and often hard to resist. Passion comes as a strong and barely controllable emotion as a form of reaction or interaction that stems from a connection or desire for something and ultimately forms the basis for all of our self-induced suffering. Sexual desire and lust can form a kind of fanaticism and mania by arousing an intense emotion. Emotions are the language and motivating force of the material plane and govern our subconscious mind as our instinctual nature. We cultivate emotional states through our living conditions, circumstances and situations, moods, and relationships with others.

The lower material plane exists within what we call the Astral Plane, which as the name implies can also be thought of as the “atmosphere” of the Earth, which is comprised of the Elements of fire (light and heat), and water (primordial substance), that together produce air, which is illuminated and fortified by starlight (our sun). Within the invisible atmosphere all around us live elementals, which are a primal form of consciousness as “singular qualities” that form what we call the instinctual plane and the Collective Unconscious. They exist as what we could think of as “memory” that have personality traits and distinct behaviors or operations associated with them. As humans, we tend to experience them as emotions that produce an imagined reality that’s a form of illusion or fantasy. If you pay close attention you’ll realize emotions are readily transmitted through the atmosphere. We sense them as the “energy” in a place or situation, and act to “receive” them from others who are outwardly expressing and projecting them, and when we “take on” an emotion, it alters our state of mind, has a certain type of reality inherent in it that starts playing out in our mind as a memory of some form, and causes us to act in a certain way.

What we traditionally call “demons” or demonic forces which are typically represented as bad or evil forces, and while they can take on that quality when inhabiting a person and taking control of their will and imagination, in the most general sense they’re neither good nor bad, but neutral forces that give animals their personality and behaviors, and only become “evil” when used inappropriately as the means to an end that could be considered evil, or harmful and very destructive. It’s usually the intention, will or tendencies of the person they’re inhabiting and expressing through that make them evil. Otherwise they’re simply qualities that can be employed to develop certain powers and qualities in us that help us to perform certain feats in a more proficient and expressive way. They come to us as instinctual forces that operate in an unconscious way to produce automatic, animal-like behaviors. The name daemon originated as meaning any of the lower entities that were of a partially terrestrial nature, including our Higher Self, until the name was incorrectly interpreted and corrupted to mean only evil or bad. Anyone who can see the impressions inherent in the Astral field all around us knows that it’s filled with images of what are often beautiful daemons vividly structured in varying degrees of intense prismatic colors, that are often very benevolent and pure in nature.

All energy of both the subtle and gross realms exist in polarity as complementary opposites that serve to stimulate each other and lay out the stage necessary to act out dramas. In order to act out a scenario, you have to have multiple players cast in different roles. We can only “know” ourselves “as” something through contrast and relation with its opposite. We can only know ourselves as “good” in comparison and opposition to “bad”. We can only know and experience ourselves as courageous and brave in comparison to scared and cowardice. We have to create and be in the situation that requires us to “decide” who and how we’re going to be as the drama necessary to “act it out” as an experience of our self and reality, by employing and bringing into expression the qualities necessary. We don’t ever “take in” energy as entities from outside of us, because they’re already a part of us (animal constitution), they act merely to awaken and bring forth in us those same qualities through resonance.

When we’re in a situation where they’re actively expressing and we’re stimulated by them and they become active “in us”, through awareness we can choose to employ and utilize them to develop ourselves. This forms the basis for “Journeying to the Underworld” in Shamanic medicine, which always works with the “whole person” by working with the astral-etheric body  of the psyche animal subconscious to heal the physical body by empowering the person with the “animal power” the person needs and is deficient in. These animal powers as “instinctual memory” are often referred to as demons or nature spirits, with the idea of a Demon being similar in the lower, animal plane to that of an Archetype in the Higher, Divine Planes. By acquiring the quality of the demon or animal power, we can develop that same quality in us as a part of our character, and correct a psychological and emotional imbalance that alters the physical malady associated with it.

They can also come as a psychological state that rises spontaneously in an automatic and unknown fashion, rather than through a deliberate conscious effort of some sort, which are accompanied by or produce a physiological change as a feeling (love, joy, anger, hate, fear, etc.). We’re constantly taking on and being internally stimulated by the energy all around us, just like we breathe air, not only with our lungs but with our whole body – cellular – and drink and eat food. We transform through resonance and constant stimulation of certain forces within us through an unconscious interaction simply by being in near proximity of them as a natural form of evolution. These energies exist all around us as invisible forces that become a part of our psyche and energetic make-up, both in an aware and unaware manner, as well as by intentionally taking them on to develop those same qualities and abilities within us.

We’re constantly transforming and evolving based on what type of qualities of consciousness we interact with. Out of emotion comes a reality as an imagined experience that forms the “lens we look through” to interpret and describe the situation that gave rise to it. Our “reaction to it” is what creates in the situation as a way of influencing its course and what transpires as a chain-reaction to our reaction. Every action sets into motion and infinite series of like reactions that are of the same nature, kind, and type. There’s always an equilibrating process going between our inner self and outer environment as the most basic form of evolution that’s constantly making the adjustments necessary to keep us of the same energy, nature and consciousness as the environment we exist, function, and survive in. This takes places through the natural process of resonance, sympathetic induction, and coherence. So in this sense, demonic forces can be thought of as vibratory frequencies that form patterns as physical forms of some sort that have distinct qualities and characteristics that simultaneously produce natural behaviors.

Other forms of what we call demons (Qliphoth) are what we can call “empty shells” or “harlots”, which are a form of etheric remnant left behind from a dead person who was considered evil. The etheric body, which is the shell or holographic model of the physical body, lingers in the Astral plane for quite some time after death of the body before gradually disintegrating and dissolving. It dies along with the body, but because it’s subtle in nature, takes longer to actually deteriorate. These are the destructive forces always at work in the universe and are formed and developed by the willful actions of the person who created their persona out of them. These etheric remnants remain for a time within the plane they belong to, unable to ascend, and are available to haunt or inhabit other people who either live near them or that are of a similar nature and act to attract them. This order of demons inhabits the fifth world as our conception of hell, and can’t enter higher worlds, and so when we play host to them, we condemn ourselves to the lower regions of death and destruction.

Orders of demons are assigned to each level of our multidimensional reality, just like orders of angels are. All energies in both higher and lower regions exist as dual, polar forces that together form a kind of sliding sale of degrees of the type of consciousness they represent. The angels are considered the higher, creative and benevolent principle, and the complementary demons its opposite, being a perversion (reverse) of its essential qualities. They can also come as the excess, extreme, or exaggeration of the positive quality, which makes them destructive in nature. They can come through an imbalance brought about through repetitive emanations or by employing them consistently over an extended period of time. These energies are of the Astral-etheric field, and inhabit the Astral body (subconscious) of man (animal). They’re the remains of an earlier cycle of creation, void of a soul and will of their own, and can only continue to live and create by inhabiting a person (soul) and commanding their will. This is commonly referred to as “possession” or “obsession”, and the person acting as a host for these forces can literally become another person and take on a whole new personality and behaviors.

       Demons of various sorts are also considered the “tempters” and “testers” of mankind, challenging and often corrupting their morality by appealing to their animal passions. The Angel of Death, often to refer to as Satan, is known as the “accuser and deceiver”, preying on the feeble minded and weak willed, as a means of sorting out the weak, revealing their true nature as “lower beings”. This produces what we could call the “deciding point” between who ascends to a higher domain, or to a lower one. The more animal-like we are, selfish and ruled by our passions, the more destructive we are and we cast ourselves into an infinite existence in the lower worlds of animal instincts and unconsciousness.

Evil, which is a destructive force, can’t exist on the higher realms, and so those who act as a host for demonic forces can’t pass through the “Gates of Heaven”, or the tunnel of light, and move into an existence of higher, loving, creative consciousness. We only move between planes, which exist as levels and ranges of vibration, by cultivating our nature to vibrate at a similar enough rate within the lower planes of passions, emotions, and animal instincts, to form “resonance” with the higher plane, and be “drawn up” into it. All single planes have multiple planes within them as higher and lower regions, and when moving into a higher plane we enter at the lowest region, and begin the process of transforming and evolving ourselves through use of our higher, creative capacities of choice and free will to higher, more benevolent, and selfless ways of being.

All “energetic beings” of the material plane can be influenced and directed through awareness and conscious use of will. Emotional states, passions and desires, lust, sexual attraction, and anything that has a strong magnetic feel to it that normally overtakes you in a completely natural and unconscious way (no thought or realization), can be recognized for what they are and neutralized by not reacting to them, or acting based on them. However these forces are very magnetic and gripping and may be quite difficult to resist based on their intensity, and the level of consciousness and will you’ve employed the up to this point to create your experiences and yourself by way of those experiences. When we live out of our emotions and allow our emotions to run us, we exist within and create out of an unconscious state. When experiencing strong emotions, they form illusions in our mind that we perceive as real, and we replace the present reality with a memory of the past, and create more of the past in the present.

The unconscious mind of the Astral-animal plane doesn’t have the ability to create through self-aware, deliberate acts, and merely creates in an automatic fashion out of memory of some sort. All memory is directly associated to the emotional state of the memory, and the emotions are what acts as the “activating mechanism” of memory. All natural behavior is emotionally driven, and is formed out of memory of some sort. Memory provides the automatic program or pattern for the behavioral dynamic that ensues from it. Anytime we experience an emotional charge, it renders us unconscious and begins running us, using our will and imagination to play out a memory as an illusion of some sort that we act on and participate in creating as an actual reality. Likewise, anytime we dwell in memories, we create the emotional state of those memories, and behave and create the same way in the present as we did in the past. No choice is involved because we don’t even realize that’s what we’re doing and what’s actually happening. This is what unconscious means – natural and automatic – no thought or effort is required. It comes “over us” as a state and we act as the host for it to create through and out of.

By forming a new awareness around emotions and passions, realizing what’s actually happening and the nature of the energetic world, we can reside outside of them, prevent them from entering our mind and body and taking hold, and we can remain aware and consciously decided whether we want to engage or not, and if so, how we want to engage, or we can say no altogether and refuse to cooperate. When we’re feeling passionate (both good and bad) about something, we can reflect on it and see it as magnetic forces at work in us, play it out in our mind to determine what it will create, whether good and beneficial, or bad and harmful, and we can choose whether or not to continue in cooperatively participating in it or not. The true meaning of resistance isn’t struggling and suffering by abstaining from something that’s ripping at you, it’s learning how to look at it from a different perspective and in a new light, where you see what it actually is, and in doing so, it’s no longer desirable or compelling. It’s about staying conscious in situations you normally go unconscious in through some form of reactive, impulsive, or compelling force that operates you in an automatic fashion, and controls your mind and will. Once we no longer see something as desirable, we have no trouble resisting it. Once we become aware of how our emotional states are created and how they affect us and our ability to see accurately, we can control them and learn how to utilize them in a positive way to create what we truly desire in terms of creating our reality, experiences of that reality, and ourselves by of those experiences. We can only use and consciously control what’s NOT controlling and unconsciously using us.

All demons or entities of the Astral Plane of the Collective Unconscious can be controlled and directed by the will. If we’re aware of the negative energies that are active within us, and we can identify them based on how they make us feel, what we think about when feeling that way, and what behaviors it makes us prone to, we can tell it to leave, and it has to. It can’t refuse, because it doesn’t have a will of its own. They only inhabit unconscious beings that lack awareness of what’s really going on. Often we actually love the reality and behaviors of our demons, and have built our identity around them, and so we don’t really want to give them up. In this case we literally “sell our soul” to the devil (animal nature) and condemn ourselves to an eternity within the lower planes, where we render ourselves an unconscious mortal animal instead of a divine immortal ruler of the lower planes.

Emotions and passions, in the sense that we’re talking about them here, don’t exist on the higher planes. On higher planes intuition, thought, and will are the creative forces. Only the higher, human soul acts to control its own will and imagination. We have full control over ourselves and we’re fully responsible for what we create. Divine forces reside in a reverent state, and create in a way that’s beneficial and life-promoting to everyone and everything involved. It respects and honors life in all its forms. Death and destruction are only attributes of the lower, material planes where immortal gods become mortal animals. By learning how to take control of our animal nature and instincts and passions, we can use it in a deliberate and intentional manner to create in benevolent and selfless ways that will promote life in all its forms and benefit everyone involved in the highest way possible.

How we Stay Stuck in Patterns, and How to Transform them

One of the most valuable things we can learn psychologically is to really tune into the nature of patterns. All of life operates by way of a dynamic interconnected system of patterns. Patterns are not only formed out of memory as habits or routines, but also out of how we think and reason as creative processes that form our fundamental perception of things, and as the filtering system produced by our mental paradigm which is a dynamic model comprised of correlated, congruent patterns that are constantly being developed and evolved based on our experiences and what we integrate to produce our memories. As we go through life, we’re steadily forming our mental paradigm through our conditioning and what type of dynamics we’re a part of and play a role in, that shape the way we think and perceive, while simultaneously developing and “bringing out” our own style of perceiving through the type of story we begin telling ourselves as a way of making sense of things and making them mean something.

The most basic pattern we form that births and gives rise to all other patterns, is the “life theme” we develop as “our story” about things. This story emerges naturally through our conditioning out of a series of beliefs we form due to our experiences, what we start telling ourselves about them as an interpretation and thought process, and based on what we’re taught and accept as being true and real. All stories emerge naturally out of meaning, which, as children, comes from feelings. As our mind begins developing, and we begin actively creating how we experience things based on how we begin using our mind to reason, we begin constantly asking ourselves in any situation that has significant emotional impact . . . what does this mean?

Meaning, which forms the basis for reality, like the mind and soul producing it, is three-fold in nature, and creates on three levels simultaneously. The meaning we give something that forms the basis of our story as our way experiencing, means something about others, the way the world is in general, and about us in relation to it. All of our “experiences”, which are self-created, don’t come from the actual events of our life, but from how we interpret those events. Interpretation forms perception, and perception “is” reality. Our reality as our experience of the outer world is formed 100% from our perception, which is a by-product or natural expression of our paradigm as our “model of the world”. A model is comprised of an infinite series of memory that are all of a complementary nature and work together faithfully to produce a congruent and consistent version of reality. The structure of our mind as a paradigm is what we can call the core or fundamental pattern that orchestrates and acts as a choreographer for systematically producing all of our perceptions and experiences. It’s what we could think of as our “parental pattern” that produces a series of smaller fractal patterns of the same nature and theme as its offspring. We never have independent or singular patterns, beliefs, or areas of our life, but rather a holistic and unified “system” of patterns, memories, and beliefs. If we try to work with a specific pattern or area of our life that we don’t like and want to change, without ever identifying the “core belief”, conditioned tendency, or habit of perceiving and thinking that’s naturally producing it, we fail to be able to change it, and even when we seem to have changed it in terms of outward appearance, it collapses back into the same pattern and tendency we thought we had changed. This is because it can’t be sustained as independent from the system that’s producing it as a natural and automatic way of thinking and perceiving.

We can however use specific areas of our life and relationships as the means for identifying and becoming aware of our core beliefs and fears, where our feelings counteract our intellect and rational thinking, or where we’re aware that we’re not producing what we want to through various forms of sabotage and deep seated tendencies that are purely emotional in nature and act to magnetically pull us back into habitual patterns. Once we realize that we’re playing out the same fundamental pattern in a variety of ways in every area of our life, we can pick one to work on consciously as a way of influencing and affecting the primary, parental pattern. In doing this, and implementing the proper type of change, one that acts to modify and upgrade the entire system, we not only bring change into that one area of our life, but in the same manner in all areas of our life. It’s only by modifying our mental paradigm as our primary pattern and model, that we ‘break patterns” in selected areas, while replacing them with new patterns that are more beneficial and produce the outcome and type of experience we desire. We’re never “stopping one pattern” or quitting something, but rather changing an old pattern into a new one, or replacing something with something else. This means that it’s not enough to decide what you don’t like or want to change, but also what you “do want instead”, and what new behaviors or idea you’re going to employ in their place. When we decide to change our self and life in some way, we’re moving out of a form of unconscious and natural way of producing habitual experiences and into a role of actively creating with full awareness of what we’re doing and why. This means it requires a strong desire, steady focus, and constant effort (at first). All intentional change only comes through active use of our will and our ability to choose new options and ways of being.

In the most general sense of the word, being always produces doing. All action results from our inward sense of our self. To produce an outward change, we have to work by changing the inward state of being that’s acting through a fundamental form of self-expression to systematically produce it in a habitual fashion. We don’t change the world or other people by trying to work “on them” directly, but by changing ourselves inwardly, which automatically produces how we exist in relationship to the outer world, how we perceive others (in our own image), and how we act naturally to influence them in new ways that change how they respond to us. It’s only by changing ourselves that others and the world in general appears different to us. As long as we remain the same internally, everything remains the same externally. The entire world operates according to the Law of Cause and Effect. All action produces and equal reaction of the same nature and type. To change how someone else is acting, we have to change how we’re acting to stimulate them, and how we sense and perceive ourselves in relationship with them. As long as we’re employing the same attitude, way of looking at something and behaviors, we consistently produce the same thing over and over.

Learning how to Change Your Story

The first thing we have to do when deciding we have to change somehow, is learn how to actively “give up” our story about stuff and form instead a desire to tell a new kind of story that changes how we experience the events of our life and causes us to feel different and “become” a different type of person as a result. Most don’t want to give up their story about things, but instead want to be validated in it, and have everyone and everything else change through a form of agreeing and acting to counteract or go against instead what they’re actually the one creating. Someone who never feels “wanted”, for example, wants to keep telling that story and feeling that way, while having someone demonstrate or prove to them that they “want them”, yet their perceptual filters will always act to interpret any behavior to mean they’re not wanted. Usually of course without realizing that that’s what they’re doing, because we often don’t fully realize that we create our story perfectly through our feelings and perceptions, and only see and “experience” what matches them, and what can be skewed or recomposed in a way that lends itself to telling our story. The “feeling” that at once produces our story, creating an experience that gives us more of that same feeling, being the key component.

Our story is difficult to change because we’ve built our identity out of it as how we perceive and sense ourselves, and as a result don’t know how to tell a different type of story. When we try, we can often feel awkward, unfamiliar and uncertain, in new territory without a means to navigate, and don’t know how to “be” or what to do. All behavior is learned, and with learning comes the unknown. We have to practice something before we get good at it and it starts becoming natural. Change at first feels like we’re not being ourselves, or we’re someone phony or inauthentic (to use a buzz word), and this feeling and thought is what often sabotages our attempts at change and causes us to revert back to old and familiar ways of being that are more comfortable.

We don’t have to work through all of our “issues” and complexes through years of therapy and self-reflection on the events of our life, what happened to us, and why we’re the way we are, which usually only validates and strengthens them, but by learning instead how to use our creative power of choice and free will. We can produce any change we want by making the “clear and actual decision” to change, then disciplining ourselves to consistently produce and act out that decision until it becomes natural and automatic. Ways of feeling, thinking, perceiving, and acting are merely habits we’ve established as the means of producing the experience of ourselves and our life. Like all habits, they can be changed by simply replacing them with new habits. You have to want the change bad enough to do what it takes to produce and then maintain it, by deciding in a fully aware manner who and how you’re going to be and what type of story you’re going to tell by how you live your life.

Changing our story doesn’t mean we form an illusion over what we imagine to be fact, or deny the events of our life that formed our memories, but rather by learning the art of transforming them by interpreting them and telling our story about them from a new and different perspective that changes the experience of them. For example, when I was a kid, one of the stories I kept telling myself was that nobody really knew me for who I am, but rather by judging me to be like my family. I had a fairly traumatic childhood, and was a compulsive runaway, living much of my life on the streets, and was used to those who tried to help me looking at me and saying things like “you poor thing”, which was just about the most god-awful feeling I ever had because it made me out to be weak and pitiful, when my life circumstances actually served to make me very strong and capable. When I became an adult, and moved to a different city where nobody knew my past or family, a voice inside me one day casually said, “ok, now you’re in a situation where nobody knows to judge you based on your family and past . . . so who are you going to be?” And at that moment, the entire course of my life changed, and I was truly in a position of creating myself, which I found exciting.

I started off by vowing to never talk about my past or how I grew up with any new people, living fully in the present and giving them only an impression of what I was like at that time. I did this for years, and it became a natural way of living for me, and I quit thinking about my past altogether in the normal daily sense. I learned how to stay present and to realize in every moment I was deciding who I was going to be by how I acted and what I talked about. Later, when I was in another new environment, I decided to talk about my past as my childhood experiences while only picking the ones I could tell from a humorous and adventurous perspective. I made what was actually drastic and traumatic at the time, seem funny and exciting. I decided to tell stories of running away and hoping freight trains to unknown destinations from a perspective of “Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn”, as an exciting adventure met with constant surprises and quirky opportunities. I learned how to pick different memories to tell stories around rather than the ones I had previously focused on. I became so good at this, that my staff found them very entertaining, and on slow afternoons would ask me to tell them more stories about growing up.

The point to this is that the “way” I told the stories made me feel entirely different and turned me into a different type of person. Because I imagined them vividly from a different perspective, and played them out repeatedly from that perspective, it literally changed my memories by evolving and transforming them. From that point on, every time I thought about those events, I remembered them from a new perspective, and after a while I not only couldn’t remember how I experienced them originally as a little girl, but got to where I no longer felt like that little girl. She became more like somebody I knew really well and loved very much. She was no longer an essential part of me, and wasn’t the one who created the story I was still living out of as an adult. I began realizing that what tends to become our story as our “life theme” that we continue creating out of as adults, originates from a child’s perspective who is simply trying to make sense of things as best they can with the limited resources they have. As an adult I was much more equipped to tell a far more accurate story of my life based on an adult, mature perspective and mindset.

One of the first things you want to notice when forming a new story about yourself and your life, is that you have many memories of your past, but you consistently pick a small handful, usually the ones with the greatest emotional impact, to use consistently to “tell your story” about what happened to you and what your life was like. You could just as easily let go of those and pick a whole new set that you use to tell stories out of (to yourself and others) that would completely change the way you feel and who you become. You can also take the same major events of your life, realize how you interpreted them at the time you were going through them to create how you experienced them, and decide from a perspective of hindsight and what they served to teach you through the realizations you obtained because of them, and (re)perceive them from a new, more mature perspective, and retell your story about them in a way that makes you feel different, and become different by way of them as a result. As you form a new perspective, you imagine it as a reality that created a different type of experience, the type you want as the means of developing yourself in that way. As you create a new experience of it, and you get it just the way you like it, you play it over and over in your mind from within the experience of it. By playing it repeatedly, in vivid sensory terms of being in the experience of it, you establish it as a new memory and pattern that forms the basis for telling a new type of story. Instead of being scared or freaked out, you can be courageous, brave, confident, or surprised and filled with anticipation as a form of excitement. Instead of hurt and feeling betrayed, you can see it clearly, read all the signs of what was going on, and realize that as it happened it had nothing to do with you, and so you remain unaffected by it.

Because we’re the ones that are always creating our experiences of the events of our life, we form our memories also. Our memories become the established patterns as fully interpreted realities that provide us with instant patterns in the present to create more of the same type of experiences through similar events. As we create our experiences that become our memories, we simultaneously create ourselves by way of those experiences. All of our perception and resulting behaviors are produced in a natural and automatic way from memory. Our memories are shaped by the primary patterns of our life as our “theme” or “life’s story” that we’re always acting out and creating in some manner in every area of our life. To change a pattern as a memory, is to either transform an existing memory into a new experience, or create a new memory that you’ll use in place of the old memory that provides a pattern for the subconscious mind to act out naturally and use to produce more realities and experiences of the same nature.

To create a new (virtual) memory, start by selecting a scenario or behavior in your current life that you’d like to change. Form a very clear idea of what you’d like to change it to. How would you like to experience it or behave instead? As you go over the course of events, reflecting on how it went, what your interaction was, how you felt, and what you did, form a clear idea on how you would have liked it to have gone instead, and how you would respond or interact through hindsight. Reform it in your mind accordingly, until it plays out the way you want it to. If changing a behavior and not the overall pattern as a dynamic, leave everything the same (the emotion, meaning, trigger, etc.), and simply “choose” how you would have liked to have behaved, and play that out instead as a new response to the same stimulus. Once you have it the way you want as a general flow, replay it in your mind until it’s consistent. Once it’s consistent as a pattern that can be replayed in the imagination, begin enhancing it with sensory attributes and qualities. Make it vivid, in full color, and up close (immediate). Then shape it further by asking:

  • What are you seeing (picture in detail)
  • What are you hearing?
  • What are you touching or feeling? (objects or textures)
  • Smelling and tasting?
  • How are you feeling? (internally)
  • What are you telling yourself about it (internal dialogue)?
  • Feel it as an emotional experience – as if it’s actually happening.

Play it over several times as an actual experience that’s just the way you want it, until you can recall it automatically. What references a memory in the present is whatever feeling and emotion is connected to it. In order to use it to replace another memory, associate the same feeling and emotions to it. So that anytime you’re in a situation feeling that way, it triggers that memory and you see it as a pattern for creating the same type of experience and reality in the present one.

If you’re creating a brand new type of experience that you want to create, focus heavily on the feeling it gives you, and realize that brand new experiences may not come in the same way you imagine as a specific situation or set of circumstances, but it’ll produce the same type of feeling. You won’t be able to recognize it by what it looks like, but rather by how you feel when in it, having it. The appearance it takes on will be based on what’s available in your immediate, everyday environment that’s of the same nature and will naturally lend itself to co-creating the same type of experience. The reality it comes by way of will however be of the same theme, dynamic, and over-all pattern.

The other thing you have to keep in mind is that you can’t inflict your will on others. If you’re not of the same will, nature, and destiny, the reality you produce that includes them will never manifest. You can’t require specific people to be a part of your memory/reality, and it can’t be an attempt to change someone else, it can only require you to change by directing your own perception and behavior. If other people are involved, they have to be archetypes only, or a representation of a “type of person” who would act naturally to create that type of experience. So “who” actually participates in co-creating the experience, and the set of circumstances it takes place in, might be quite different than you imagined, yet it’ll be the same “type” of experience.

Projection is an Absolute Science – “Unveiling Hidden Aspects of the Subconscious Mind”

The idea of “projection” can be difficult to understand in the practical sense because most of us have no real awareness of our own subconscious mind, and the true nature of denial and emotional suppression. As a general rule we naturally tend to perceive ourselves as being separate and apart from others and our environment. We don’t realize in the most basic sense that we’re actually the one creating our perception of both. To fully understand the power of this idea requires a basic knowledge of the nature of the mind and its ability to create all aspects of our reality as being “subjective” in nature. Our perception of the outer world is a direct correspondence to the hidden and unknown aspects of our inner world. Both the inner and the outer world is a product of our mind and is produced by the same mental paradigm as the “perceptual lens” we filter everything through in order to experience it.

What we call reality “exists” only as we perceive it. All perception is reality. There’s no set or generic definition for what we call “objective” reality, because no matter how you go about it, it’s always the result of someone’s perception, and doesn’t exist outside of the mind that’s creating it. What’s being observed outwardly and the mind doing the observing inwardly are a part of the same event as a dynamic and fluid interaction. Our mind literally influences the matter around us, altering and shaping how it “appears” to match our ideas and beliefs about it. Our mental paradigm is a field of energy that vibrates at a certain frequency, and is comprised of a dynamic series of correlated patterns formed by a “self-organizing mechanism” that simultaneously “reorganizes” everything else to be of the same structure, likeness, and behaviors.

Our mind is 3-fold in nature. We have 3 aspects, levels, and functions of our mind that act in unison to produce both the internal and external reality that correspond and correlate to each other as complementary opposites. The same “pattern” as a holographic reality exists on different scales, levels, and degrees of complexity simultaneously. All ideas and qualities or characteristics exist as polar opposites that form a gradient scale between positive and negative extremes of the same idea or thematic reality. Nothing exists as independent of everything else, but rather as the result of the relationship it forms with everything else. In order for an idea as an experience to play out, we have to have people that play opposite roles that contrast, correlate, and relate to each other as the necessary dynamic to create the desired experience.

All experience comes as a form of story-line as a dynamic theme that’s produced by our character and the behavioral dynamic we’re conditioned to that is constantly playing out as an outer event. We can only know “good” by relating and contrasting it to its opposite as “bad”. We only know and can define “hot” by how it exists in relationship with “cold”. So in order to experience and define ourselves as something specific, we have to enter into relationship with its opposite characteristic. Opposites (of the same idea) attract, stimulate each other, and serve to call forth into expression its opposite and complementary characteristic. In order to experience and know ourselves as courageous, we have to compare and contrast ourselves to the opposite as cowardice. Both are formed by a response to fear, and exist as a choice we make as to how we’re going to respond, or what kind of experience of ourselves we’re going to create by way of it.

Our mind operates according to the law of polarity and only exists in relationship with itself (same frequency as a dynamic pattern) in everything else (Dyad). Our subconscious mind is fully functioning and creative without our direct awareness. It’s the part of the mind that we share with all of the natural world and animal kingdom known as instinct, intuition, and morphic resonance, or what we’ve come to call the collective unconscious. It performs all automatic biological functions of the body in a constant and continuous manner, produces emotional-chemical responses as an interaction and communication with everything around us in our environment, and is what acts to form what we call our “perceptual lens” as a series of mental filters that we filter information through, restructuring it into personalized versions of reality.

Our mind exists as a field of information structured by accumulated memory that vibrates at a certain frequency that has a dynamic, multidimensional pattern inherent within it as a form of “theme”, that also has what we call a self-organizing mechanism that reorders all matter as energetic essence into the same type of pattern on a larger scale as an interaction and relationship with it. We all vibrate to a certain frequency that has a quality of conscious, character, and theme inherent in it. We “resonate with” (bring out and reconfigure) that same reality as a dynamic pattern in everyone and everything else, changing how it behaves and “appears to us”. We change it to be of the same qualities, thematic reality and behavioral dynamic that we are so we can continue telling our story in a consistent and congruent manner. We reform everything to be of the same nature as we are. We “see” and exist in relationship with everything as a way of fitting it into our story about things, and in doing so, change not only its form as its appearance, but its nature in terms of the meaning we assign to the behaviors it displays as a way of experiencing it.

We never see others or the outside world as it actually is, a part from us, but rather as we reform it to be “like us”. We remake everything to be of the same nature, character, mind-set, attitude, behaviors, and “story” as a vibratory pattern, as we are. The object being observed and the person observing it, are a part of the same event. Matter “literally” responds (resonates) to the consciousness of the mind observing it, and morphs (shifts) to match it in vibration. What we expect and believe to be true, we literally create by how and what we perceive in any situation. We only notice, abstract, and use to compose an idea what matches our perception and expectation, configuring it into a new form with modified characteristics that are complementary to us and match our intention. We literally act on all material objects (matter is passive and fluid) to activate (turn on) and bring out certain qualities (complementary to our own), while deactivating (turning off) others, remixing it, changing the appearance and behavior of others and the entire material world as a cohesive and congruent whole. We’re always directly influencing others and the natural world through our intentions, thoughts, emotions, and actions.

All ideas that play out as dynamics of some sort to create a reality as an experience, exist as a whole pattern with multiple roles, as well as conscious (aware) and unconscious (unaware) aspects that act on each other to attract, influence and reform, while simultaneously repelling, comparing and contrasting, and together play out a shared dynamic as a fundamental form of self-expression that simultaneously self-creates through its own outer, co-creation.

We are conditioned (tuned and developed) to certain themes and dynamics, as whole patterns that form the basis for creating a reality that require complementary roles in order to play them out. The entire outer world is composed and organized by the subconscious mind as our outer energy field that encompasses and permeates the body, while extending quite some distance outward, blending with everything else and forming our perception of the outer world as the complementary opposite of our inner, self-conscious world of sensory, brain and heart oriented thinking and feeling. The outer world is structured by the “content” of the subconscious mind, most of which is unknown to us at the conscious – aware level, and reflects back to us hidden aspects of ourselves that are covertly operating to create our experience of reality without our direct awareness.

By realizing and becoming aware of our perception and judgment of others we can see aspects of ourselves that we’re normally unaware of. What we see that what’s outside of ourselves and in others, is a direct reflection and projection of our own subconscious mind. This is how we can become aware of aspects of ourselves that normally remain hidden from us. Once we realize that our entire perception of what we call reality is a product of our mind (both of our self-conscious and subconscious) that exist in polarity to each other as inner and outer, self and other, all of which are of the same “nature” as a vibratory frequency and quality of consciousness that shapes matter into thematic patterns, we can begin seeing ourselves and our life in a new light.

Denial

Anytime we’re made to feel guilty, ashamed, or humiliated in some way, we deny those emotions and behaviors, and suppress them. Whatever we deny and repress, stays alive inside of us, and continues acting in our lives at the subconscious level to create our experience of reality. We create an illusion around them as a series of stories that makes them “seem different” than they really are, or as a means of defending ourselves against them as a way of proving we’re not like that by making others out to be like that instead. This is why most people have trouble seeing, recognizing, and understanding their own projections, because they’re in denial about them, even to themselves. Whatever we deny having as a character trait, we project onto others, see it in them, and then judge them and react to it. We can come to know our own unconscious aspects because we have a pronounced reaction to them in others. All reaction of any kind, good or bad, comes through resonance – being of the same frequency as its polar opposite. Like always produces more of what’s like itself.

Likewise, we develop what we call our “issues” around our own denied aspects and the dynamics we’ve been conditioned to. If we’ve been called a liar, and made to feel bad or wrong for doing so, and were punished and made to feel ashamed of ourselves, we suppress those emotions while deny being a liar to ourselves and others, while simultaneously projecting that idea onto others and see them as being the one lying to us. We continue lying while telling ourselves a story about it that makes it seem different, so we convince ourselves that we’re not lying at all. We justify our “right to lie” based on our reason for doing it. Anyone who has an “issue” with people lying, or outright profess themselves to be honest and truthful by making a point out of it, and then tell stories as memories of some sort where lying, deception, and betrayal were a main theme, have an absolute tendency to lie, deceive, and betray themselves, and are usually perceived by others as being a liar. They go into denial about it by building stories around it as defensive mechanisms that make it seem like something else. They tell themselves a story as a form of illusion that either gives them the right to lie, or that justifies their right to do whatever it is they’re doing. Then of course we have what we call “white lies”, little lies, fibs, or lies as a means of being polite and tactful so that you’re not hurting people’s feelings. So we develop “degrees of lying” that tend to candy coat it so it doesn’t seem so bad.

A person who has trouble trusting others, is untrustworthy themselves. They’ve been conditioned somehow by participating in a dynamic where “trust” was a main theme, and are therefore “imprinted” with that pattern, where they can play any role in that dynamic based on what role the other person they’re in relationship with plays. They go into relationships expecting deceit and betrayal of some form, look for it constantly, and can interpret any number of behaviors to mean the person is untrustworthy. They’re constantly suspect of the other person, accuse them of things, and have a tendency to spy on and investigate them by snooping in their stuff, checking their phone, and any communication methods, secretly following them, or always looking for evidence of some sort that can be used to prove they’re untrustworthy. All of these acts make the person themselves untrustworthy, deceptive, and betraying the trust the other person had in them.  This usually happens without them ever seeing it that way because they’re telling themselves a story about why they’re doing what they’re doing that gives them the right to do it without it meaning that they’re violating the trust of the other person. The reality is that they’re the ones that can’t be trusted and they attract and enter into relationship with others who will fulfill that same dynamic as a shared reality.

Whatever character someone automatically assigns to another person as a form of what we call “value judgment” (what most people mean when they use the term judgment), or judgment that’s not based on the nature and actions of the person themselves, but more of a classification of sorts that fits them into a category, is showing us traits that we ourselves possess. We’re looking through the “lens” of that quality and seeing it in everything else while simultaneously acting to bring it out in people or situations by how we act and interact. We’ve developed mental filters that accentuate and bring out certain qualities (that match our judgment) while ignoring or downplaying qualities that counteract, disprove, or don’t fit our idea about them. We remake people in our own image to be a part of the same character traits, behavioral dynamics, and life theme as we are. We see them in a way that allows us to keep telling our story about things in a consistent manner.

This is the “self-organizing” ability of vibration to influence and organize matter into “patterns” that have distinct characteristics, behaviors, and themes in them produced by the meaning we give things. Our criteria for judging others is a product of our own consciousness and mental paradigm. We act as a magnet to attract those who share the same tendencies and who are programmed to the same behaviors who cooperatively participate in acting out the same type of idea as a shared experience. Whatever pattern we’re programmed with, we are always playing every role in that dynamic, and switch back and forth in complementary positions. We both initiate and act to set the dynamic into motion, while stimulating it in the other person and they react in a like manner, giving the same idea back to us where we experience ourselves as being on the receiving end or the victim of our own self-initiated tendencies.

One of the best ways to recognize your own subconscious or “shadow” aspects, is to pay attention to your own thoughts as the stories you’re always in the process of telling yourself about others and the events of life, while reflecting on where those stories came from. What relationship or event as a memory of the past is that story based on? If you could see yourself as having the same tendencies while making them out to be different by how you explain or justify them, what would they be? Reflect on what role you’re playing in a familiar dynamic or theme. One that you’re used to playing, know how to play, and have play many times before. Allow yourself to realize that the entire outer world is being “viewed through” the lens of your mental paradigm (both conscious and subconscious) which determines “how it appears to you”, and that what you’re seeing in others is the same aspects that you yourself possess. Most of which you’re not fully aware of because you’ve built an illusion around them. Allow yourself to notice that the same “behavior” and act is involved, only made different by the story you tell yourself about “why” you’re doing it that makes it “seem” different.

We can only work with what we’re aware of and “own” in ourselves. Projection is how we are able to see the content of our own subconscious mind so that we can begin working to heal and transform it in an intentional and deliberate manner. The only thing we can truly change in life is ourselves. By changing ourselves, we change the world around us. By recognizing our own conditioned tendencies as themes acted out through behavioral dynamics that we naturally act to initiate and participate in, we can begin exercising our creative ability through choice and will to deliberately develop ourselves by transforming existing character traits into new ones.

We know when we’ve healed ourselves of conditioned patterns when we no longer see those same character traits in others as a basic, automatic, and generalized perception. As we change ourselves internally, the way the world outside of us appears changes as a direct correspondence. Other people always act as a mirror for us, reflecting back to us hidden character traits and tendencies as our automatic perception of them. When we no longer share the same traits with another, we lose interest in them and no longer find them stimulating. For this reason, as we change, so do our relationships and the story we’re always in the process of telling by how we perceive, interpret, and live our life.

Vibration, Mental Projection, and Creating New Versions of Reality

The Vibratory Frequency of the Mind exists as a Paradigm that Shapes our Experience of Reality

2-people-with-energy-in-between

The state of mind that we exist in as a form of mood, determines our attitude, perspective, and the emotional theme we use as a filtering system in forming our fundamental perceptions, experiences, and behaviors. Our mood as a quality of consciousness, which we act the channel for, is our vibratory frequency, and is what “organizes” everything outside of us to match the theme being played out internally through our imagined thoughts. Whatever state we’re in determines what we focus on and give our attention to, what memories we access and run through our mind as a means of interpreting the present to mean the same thing as the past, conforming it to our theme, and how we act and behave as a result. Our state-of-mind as our vibratory frequency has a self-organizing mechanism inherent in it that aligns the entire mind-body system to express in a consistent and congruent fashion. How we’re feeling produces how we’re being and what we’re doing.

Our mood “is” our vibratory frequency or quality of consciousness that’s constantly being projected and transmitted out into the space around us, and interacting with that same quality of consciousness in everything else by resonating with it. Our mood or emotional state emanates from within, influencing others around us with the same type of feeling. At the same time, we’re drawing more of the same vibration or feeling energy back to us, absorbing it, being nourished and strengthened by it, multiplying and increasing it, while acquiring and accumulating it. Our vibratory frequency as our state-of-mind is the entire energy field that surrounds, envelops, and operates through our body. We literally “look through” our mind as a mental lens or filtering system, and notice in others and the environment only what’s of the same nature (quality), and can be readily used to create the reality of that mood, which makes it “provable” by appearing to be factual and objective. Because we only see and experience the reality of our mood, which validates, strengthens, and supports it as being “real”, we don’t realize that we’re actually creating it with our mind, and that we can change our experience of reality by simply changing our mind.

Afterlife - alien planet - DMT - stargate

Our mind is an electromagnetic field which surrounds and expands several feet from our body, while transmitting its frequency and acting to stimulate the same frequency in everyone and everything around us, bringing out and making active the equivalent qualities in them through our influence, and they begin cooperatively participating in playing out the same “type” of reality as a behavioral dynamic that expresses the same feeling state. As we perceive through our mental filters, we project or superimpose our mind as a pattern of qualities or “thematic model” onto others (look through it), and see in them the same thing that’s in us. Not necessarily in the same position or role in a “joint theme”, but as the complementary role necessary to play out the shared theme as a relationship (dynamic interaction). Projection, as what we “see in others” that causes a reaction of some sort in us in relation to them, is identifying the complementary opposite of the same dynamic which can be acted out together to create a joint experience of the same nature. What we think about somebody else, and react to, is the same quality we ourselves possess, which is why we’re having a reaction or feel a strong emotional response to them. Our behavior towards others is the perfect stimulus for bringing out in them what we believe is there to bring out.

Our mental and emotional projections are stimulating at the invisible, subtle level, and are being received and felt by everyone around us all the time. Matter, as the organic substance of life that acts as a receptor for consciousness and is structured into a material bodies that represent the qualities of consciousness inhabiting it, at the molecular level, interacts with the mind (our own and others) and reformulates the appearance matter takes on accordingly. This is readily demonstrated in the “placebo effect” which works solely off the power of belief and our ability to direct and manipulate the biological world to produce the reality or effect of our belief. This is further demonstrated in what’s called “double blind tests” in which both people involved (doctor and patient) believe the same thing (that the placebo works), which increases its effectiveness. This is because the disbelief of one person (say, the administering doctor) is demonstrated and communicated through their subtle behaviors in stating what the placebo will do (is not convincing), and produces a subtle effect on the unconscious mind of the other person, introducing doubt, and thereby alters the overall outcome. Whenever an experience is being conducted involving the mind, it’s important that all people involved in the process are of an open mind or share the same belief, because at the invisible, energetic level of the mind, they will have a direct effect on the overall outcome.

What we believe, and therefore perceive about others reveals to us what dynamic we’re programmed with as a vibratory frequency. It shows us what type of relationships we are prone to, and always acting at the subconscious level to attract and co-create. As children we’re imprinted with a dynamic as a behavioral theme. This imprinting is produced and seated through intense emotional interactions and events of some sort that have a strong impact on us. Because it’s a dynamic we “live within”, we’re trained to naturally perceive and play a role in the same dynamic. We form numerous responses to the behaviors being demonstrated by others, and because we form the same perceptions through the mental paradigm that forms because of the interaction, we naturally produce the behaviors that stimulate the pattern itself through the memory we acquire because of our experiences, and live within (act out) that same thematic pattern in all areas and relationships of our life in one way or another.

The family dynamic we’re trained to, even though as children we play only one distinct role (from the perspective of the child) in that dynamic, as we become the adult, we naturally take on begin relating to the adult position in that same pattern and continue acting it out by being able to play any role in it. What role we play depends on what role our co-star takes on in the same pattern. We can readily move back and forth between the passive role and the dominating role of the same idea. We’re always initiating it and reacting to it at the same time. We only enter into relationships with those who have similar imprinting and can participate in co-creating the same feeling experience as an ongoing relationship, expressed through a variety of situations and life circumstances. So even though the elements and people may change as circumstances, the “same idea” is being acted out in a new environment with new players as a slight modification.

When we say that the mind “creates reality”, we don’t mean literally by producing something out of thin air, but rather that the mind can take any situation or circumstances, and through a sorting process of only abstracting and reorganizing certain aspects of it, makes it “appear” different. Our mind through our perceptual lens reinterprets a neutral reality of vast potential, into a possible variation as a personal creation. Everybody who’s apart of the same event as an objective reality, will view and experience it in a different and unique fashion from everybody else. No two people will experience it in the same way. Some people’s experience will be considerably different (of a completely different frequency), some will be kind of similar (in close range), and others will be along the same lines (of a similar vibration).

We rearrange the elements and qualities in any situation, by noticing some, and not noticing others, changing the active components, then interpreting the selected elements through a story we tell ourselves about it that creates how we experience it. So even though we all share the same neutral and objective outer reality, how we experience it by creating our own personalized version of that reality, is our minds natural creative ability. As we change our mind, how things appear to us changes accordingly. As we learn and incorporate new knowledge through an experience of some form, we alter our minds structure as a mental paradigm, and it changes how we see and experience everything else based on how the integration restructures our mind’s “patterning” as a shift in vibration. We only change our vibration by changing our mind, which changes how we see the world around us and how we experience it as a result.

Relationship Dynamics – “Behavioral Patterns as Life Themes”

laughing
One of the difficulties we tend to have in fully comprehending our true ability to self-create through various dynamics that we act out in relationship with others, is that we have conscious and unconscious aspects of an experience, as well as a tendency to identify with every role in a behavioral pattern, and are moving in and out of them all the time in a completely natural and spontaneous way. We tend to view life as happening “to us”, largely because our fundamental patterns are established through childhood conditioning, when we are only partially aware in our experiences, while associated to the position (role) of having stuff done to us by others while having no real control over the situation. Yet, in reality, we are being conditioned to the behavioral pattern as a form of living drama that we eventually, once we mature and become an adult in the same behavior, we can play any role within the same dynamic, and simultaneously act to initiate the pattern by first doing unto the other what we want (cause) them to do back unto us. We then get to experience it as though once again . . . it’s happening to us.

 
How we are treated by others as children not only teaches and trains us to the actions inherent in the pattern, but also the values, beliefs, and emotional states that the behavior is an expression of. The belief provides the composition as an enactment, the values as what’s important, what’s not and why, and the emotions as the charge or expressive component the behavior is given and the attitude employed in order to effectively act it out. If for example, we are made to feel (told and treated as if) that we’re not important, or were a burden of some form, and consistently treated that way (parents beliefs projected onto us), we form it as a core belief, meaning a primary belief that spawns other beliefs based on it, that acts to shape our life in a powerful way as the central theme of our life’s story that later develops our identity around and by way of it. We then develop an array of behaviors around it as a means of compensating, defending, deflecting, or denying and immediately reacting to it. We are always acting it out and creating it as a consistent experience in some way by how we interpret other people’s behavior and events to make them somehow mean that we are not important or wanted, and recreate the same experience of being rejected once again within our own life in some way.

 
The belief forms a mental filter that we use to perceive everything through that reshapes it through how we interpret it to mean “we’re not good enough”, while also producing the behaviors that causes others to react to us by treating us the way we belive we deserve to be treated. In relationships where rejection is not immediately acted out, we will behave in a way that causes them to feel rejected by us, responding by rejecting us back, or we’ll produce the behavior that is repulsive is some way, producing the natural response of someone not wanting to be with or around us. We then experience being rejected “by them” without direct awareness that we did the rejecting to begin with, or created the behavior we knew would cause them to not like us. We act to perpetuate the very behavior we imagine is being done to us by others.
We are conditioned not to singular behaviors or a specific perspective or role within an overall dynamic, but to the dynamic itself as a thematic story, where we can play any role in it. We attract and are attracted to people, situations, and events that can be used to unconsciously act out the same type of dramas as joint experience that serves to tell the same type of story about us, about others, and they way things are over-and-over again throughout our lives. Whatever role the other naturally falls into, we will play the complementary role. The only way to break this pattern is to become aware of it, realize your own tendencies and part in creating the pattern, and choosing to replace it with new behaviors by consciously reconditioning ourselves to become in character the type of person that can naturally act to tell a new type of story, and attract the proper elements to co-create it as a joint reality-experience.

disagreement

As long as we remain in denial, not realizing and owning our part, and projecting and blaming it on others, imagining it’s being done to us beyond our control, and we continue to unconsciously create the behaviors that initiates it as a action-reaction pattern that takes on a life of it’s own, we will remain stuck in its grip, feeling helpless to break-out of our own illusion. Once we can take an objective, dissociated perspective, and see ourselves in the story as an active participant from a non-personal position, we can see fully how we engage in the very behavior we imagine is being done to us, and catch ourselves in the moment when we are about to engage in it through some form of stimulus, because we realize “how” we’re acting to do it. What it is we do exactly that initiates it, while justifying and validating it somehow through the story we tell ourselves about it and through a basic form of self-awareness, we can choose to behave in a different way by interpreting their behavior or the situation in a new way, seeing something different, and breaking the unconscious pattern as a result. We can identifying the feelings as an emotion that triggers an unconscious reaction as defensive behaviors.

 
All healing is only possible by bringing what is unconscious and therefore automatic, into awareness as self-realization. By realizing that we are the sole creators of our own experiences, even as a child, we can realize that the thematic patterns we use to create a consistent story “about” us and our life, resulted from how we interpreted events from the mind and emotions of a child that we continue to use as an adult to live out of the same basic emotional interpretations as an adult. Our inner child becomes the story-teller that continues to shape us from an unconscious perspective for the rest of our life, unless we wake up in the midst of our own illusions, and beginning forming new interpretations from the mind and emotions of the adult. All transformation comes through self-knowledge as self-awareness and the employment of our own mind to recreate ourselves by how we choose to use our imagination to create a sense of ourselves through the stories that we tell about ourselves, others, and life in general. We are always the author (authority) of our own life and the sole creator of our internal experience as the thoughts and emotions we entertain willingly on a regular basis. True self-mastery comes from realizing how we use our mind to create realities, then using it intentionally to create the ones we truly want to tell! The ones that will shape who we are through the telling.

Sub-personalities – Internal Conflict and the Voices in your Head

good and bad
One of the most natural aspects of our everyday experience is this constant inner dialogue going on within our mind as a form of discussion, negotiation, or argument between different aspects or parts of ourselves. This natural phenomenon is evident in how we describe it when we say that “one part of me wants to do this, while another part of me wants to do that”. This split decision causes us to feel torn between ideas, and often leaves us never really making a firm decision while constantly going back and forth between extremes of the same idea. This same reality is often depicted as a devil on one shoulder, and an angel on the other, both whispering in our ear. Carl Jung recognized this basic process of consciousness always going on, and developed the idea of the psyche being composed of multiple archetypes or personalities that are always engaged in discussion and persuasion as part of our normal thinking. Of course this idea wasn’t unique to Jung, but is a basic part of ancient wisdom and the archetypes of mythology as aspects of consciousness that represent different personalities, and astrology based on the individual make-up being based on the archetypes and their main focus within a persons basic personality. These are not to be mistaken for “multiple personalities”, which is an entirely different condition, but rather as different aspects of one personality.

 
These inner voices, all with personalities of their own, each exerting themselves in various situations, competing for control of our will, are actually what in psychology we call “sub-personalities”, “inner aspects”, or “different parts”, all of which make the greater overall personality. We’re born with a cluster of archetypal personalities as part of our soul’s make-up, and we acquire them as we go through life from our conditioning, events of strong emotional impact, extreme fear, or trauma’s of some sort. Our parent’s voice, for example, becomes a natural part of our inner dialogue that continues to play out and talk to us from the same attitude, perspective, intention, and demeanor. Our belief system, likewise, comes as an inner discussion that’s always telling us about something from the perspective of the belief it represents. When we encounter shocking, fearful, or intense situations, we can draw into us and take on new aspects that are ideally suited for negotiating that situation “for us”, or as a means of coping with it. Whenever we’re devastated in some way, and fall apart, we let down our resistance to outside forces and influences, and become vulnerable to them through a form of magnetism.

energy design

Whatever emotional state we indulge in, we polarize ourselves to, become a magnet for the consciousness of that emotion, and draw into us thoughts that create realities out of the emotions as a possible expression of it. We “take on” the quality of consciousness equivalent to the emotional state, and think thoughts that form inner realities that express and produce more of that emotion. These emotional thoughts, seemingly generated by our mind as the expression of the emotions, take on a life of their own, become an aspect of our personality, and continue to operate in us through a voice that becomes a natural part of our thinking. It’s an aspect of the emotional state that produces it that perceives everything from that perspective, and has its role and intention “as” that perspective. It stays alive in us by thinking through us, and always talking to us in a convincing manner, negotiating the terms of its existence.

 
The sub-personality is always describing things, explaining them, and pointing them out while telling us about them. While they’re active “in us”, we are rendered passive, and allow them to exert themselves by giving them the stage to speak freely. Even when we recognize them, and willfully subdue them, as soon as our guard is down, they reassert themselves and begin controlling our thoughts without our direct awareness. They’re so automatic that they become a natural part of us. After awhile, we can’t separate ourselves from them, come to depend on them, and let them run us and use our mind and will to create by way of us. As long as we fail to integrate the parts, they continue to exert themselves without our direct awareness, through our subconscious nature. Whatever exists in us at the subconscious level, meaning without our direct awareness of it, we continue to act out in an automatic fashion, usually producing what ultimately becomes an internal conflict. They form opposing unconscious aspects of ourselves that go against conscious aspects. We make a decision consciously to do something, and then our subconscious mind brings into play everything that contradicts it and is acting to prevent it, sabotaging our willful efforts. Because these aspects were formed out of intense emotional states, whenever we begin reliving them, or they rise in us and begin playing out by controlling our thoughts, they’re accompanied by strong emotions, which tend to overpower us, and negate rational and reasonable thinking that’s devoid of a strong emotional component.

When two ideas come into direct conflict, each represented by a different aspect of ourselves, the one which elicits the strongest emotion tends to win out. While our first approach may be to fight against the emotional aspect preventing us from consciously progressing in a more favorable direction through active choice and will, this can prove hopeless and at best a temporary gain through dominance and suppression, yet the real solution lies in negotiating terms with the sub-personality, by gaining realization around it, what its purpose and agenda is, what it’s meant to do, and thanking it for its service to you by helping you through the difficult situation in which you acquired it in, then telling it to leave, while mentally forming a pathway out of your body and sending it back out into the universe to be of service to someone else.

 
All energies and natural forces as qualities of consciousness only come into us through a vacancy or void that creates a vacuum as magnetism of some sort, which we could think of as a form of invitation that pulls or draws it into us through resonance, we can simultaneously realize that regardless of the role it takes on, the intention is beneficial because it was designed to help us through a situation we were in as a state of mind that attracted it, or awakened it in us. While we tend to think of the mind as a product of the brain or heart, and therefore “set” and comprised of fixed qualities, the fact of the matter is we are born with a constitution as a set of information and memories that form our initial personality, and we are engaged in a constant process of growth and development through a constant exchange of energy with everything around us. The mind is energetic and invisible in nature, and works through vibration, sympathetic induction, and synthesis, in much the same way we take in the molecules of the air around us by breathing it, which then become an essential part of our molecular structure, while discharging or exhaling molecules no longer needed as a form of recycling. Likewise, the food we eat becomes the building blocks that form our physical body, determining our health as a physical state or condition. Our mind is the electromagnetic energy system of our body that’s drawing into it energies as qualities the consciousness around it. Blending with and becoming the same as them, altering the vibration of the mind through the integration, while emanating or sending back out energies no longer magnetized to it.

bit by bit

The energies of the mind as the invisible forces in the invisible space around us, are “qualities of consciousness” with a singular nature that form an aspect of a larger matrix of energies and become a sub-personality with a specific perspective and perception, that forms a part of our overall personality, modifying it by incorporating the singular perspective, altering the overall perspective. We experience it as a “voice in our head” as “thought” that enter into and become a part of our normal perspective of everyday reality. Because they come as thoughts and feelings, we often don’t realize that they’re not our own, and are something we “acquired” instead, and we give our will to them by letting them rise in us as our perception, thoughts, and interpretation of the meaning events take on. They begin discussing everything as a form of argument that clashes with and negates other aspects, always seeking to win over and resume control of our perception and thought processes.

 
Like all things of the mind and the invisible plane of pure energy that we are submerged in and an integral part of, the only way to extract unwanted aspects, or aspects whose part and role is no longer needed or beneficial, is through recognition and awareness of them and how they operate to influence and control you. Because we acquire these automatically while in an unconscious state of delirium (emotion, trauma, shock, intense fear, etc.), and they’re absorbed into our unconscious mind and arise in us automatically without our direct awareness of them, they continue with us until we become conscious and aware of them. Once we become aware of different aspects of ourselves, and how they exist in conflict with other aspects of our nature, and we realize how they’re serving us through protection and service of some sort, we can appreciate them, feel gratitude for their help, and let them know they’re no longer needed. They no longer serve a desirable or necessary purpose. We can then locate them in our body through the emotion they are a part of and the bodily sensations it produces, and direct them to leave while mentally escorting them out of our body and back into the universal soul of mass consciousness where they’ll become available to be drawn in by someone else in need of their services.

 
The interesting thing about qualities or aspects of consciousness is that they exists on the plane of the mind as consciousness, and can only be worked with from that same plane. The mind controls the mind, and our own conscious awareness and imagination is used to acquire, exchange, utilize, and discharge the consciousness available all around us. We work with our mind by way of our mind. We can realize that our will commands aspects of the mind not only as energies around us, but through the mind of others. We are constantly taking on and exchanging consciousness with everyone and everything around us. By becoming aware of this we can simultaneously learn how to exercise control over it.

 
Once we realize that our soul as our consciousness actually “jumps out of” and exits our body during events of fear, shock, and trauma, causing what you could think of as a vacancy and a form of vacuum as a magnetic pull that draws in energy equivalent to or of the same vibration and quality of our state of mind, or that’s inherent in the situation, we can begin realizing the powerful role emotions and fear play in governing us through acquisition of consciousness that increase and amplifies the state itself. Fear draws into us consciousness of the reality inherent in the fear, and makes us think fearful thoughts, or react with anger and rage, through an inner voice that begins dialoguing with us about the fear and from the perspective and attitude that sees the same type of fear in everything around us just through its perception of it. Looking through the lens of fear, we only see more fear or what warrants fear.

MindfieldBy learning how to manage our state of mind, we can recognize aspects we’ve acquired that aren’t “us”. We can begin distinguishing between our real self and our acquired self. We can begin realizing that certain aspects of our thinking are associated to specific events of our life where we “acquired them” and they became a normal part of our thinking. We can begin realizing how they play a part in sabotaging other aspects of our life, or argue against and negotiate through seduction to prevent willfully bringing about desired changes through conscious decisions to do so. By becoming aware of their strong emotional component we can not only resist their control, but learn how to identify them further, while simultaneously using compelling emotions to fuel and empower our conscious decisions. By gaining realization around them and what they act to prevent, protect us from, deal with, or cause, we can see their purpose and how they were intended to protect us, and how through that same attitude and behavior now act to sabotage our intentional efforts, we can thank it for its help, and tell it it’s no longer needed, then consciously and willfully release it, freeing it from the body and mind, and no longer be subject to it. Anytime we are “removing” one aspect creating a void or opening, we have to consciously draw into that space what we want to fill it, or it’ll do it automatically with whatever is available without our direction. As we create an opening or vacuum we have call or pull our soul back in to fill it, recovering it and becoming whole again. This is traditionally referred to as “Soul Retrieval” in Shamanic Arts.
All energy as spirits, entities, qualities, or emotions is subject to and commanded by the will of the human mind. We willfully acquire them through needing or wanting, or by vacating our body creating an opening for them to enter, take hold, and remain apart of us. While they occupy a part of us, our own soul can’t fully enter back into and operate through us, and remains on the outer boundaries of the mind where an opening has to be created in order to draw our own soul aspects back into our body. Only through awareness, realization, and willful control over them can we release or discharge them. The problem is, once they become a part of us, we build our identity around them as an essential part of ourselves, and form a kind of love for them, and hold them to us as a result. We don’t want to let them go because we’ve become accustomed to the story we began living out of them due to the traumatic circumstances we acquired them through, and feel as if we would lose an important part of ourselves by letting them go that would change tour very psychological make-up by making us encounter and experience in us what they were designed to protect us from. We only draw into us and acquire consciousness that’s of service somehow and therefore useful.

ethereal body

Even when we perceive them as bad or destructive, they’re preventing us from coming face-to-face with other aspects of ourselves that we fear even more, even though they might be ultimately good and serve our growth. For example, anger and hostility may be acquired in response to something terrifying that was exactly what we needed to deal with that event, and so it helped us cope and be able to get through it, that once the terrifying event passed, we still maintain an aspect of us that approaches ordinary experiences with an attitude of anger and aggressiveness, or we see them in a way that makes us feel angry and aggressive that’s an inappropriate response. We can continue to look at ordinary things from a perspective that warrants anger and a hostel attitude. In this way, the very quality that protected us in one situation, now becomes our downfall because it becomes a primary part of our everyday life and we’re “angry a lot”, or it becomes an inappropriate response that we can’t seem to help, and we begin employing volatile reactive behavior in the ordinary sense.

 
While we may come to a conscious decision of no longer needing their diversion, and are willfully choosing to step into what we originally feared and resisted, they continue to play out preventing it by introducing contradicting thoughts and emotions that go against our active decisions and hold us to the same attitudes, identity, and behavioral tendencies they served to develop in the first place. Once they become apart of us, we mistake them for being us, and continue to let them control us by living out of them and never sticking with our decisions that would eradicate them by rendering them subjective to our will.

 
Like all things, the idea is never to fight against or resist something, but rather to remove it and its influences from the system altogether, modifying the mind, and removing all blocks to progressive growth through willful decision making. At the level of the mind and consciousness, awareness is the key! Anything we remain unaware of continues to play out in our life, without our consent. By becoming aware of unconscious or shadow aspects of ourselves, we can dissolve them through awareness itself. Not through hating them or judging them to be bad, weak, or wrong, but rather by recognizing how they were serving us at some level and were exactly what we needed to deal with the situation we were in when we attracted them. When they entered us they were helping us to cope with and negotiate some situation that was difficult for us, or that we didn’t feel equipped to deal with. It’s only through true recognition and love and gratitude, that we work with the very consciousness that makes up our own being and serves to create our life experiences and impose a distinct direction on our life’s path by playing a part in controlling our choice and will to bring about certain realities. Love, appreciation and gratitude elicit a natural state of cooperation necessary to direct energetic forces.

The Power of Focus and Attention – Learning how to Operate your Own Mind

Whatever we give Attention to, we bring to Life Inside of Us

wormholes

One of the primary principles of the mind is that “energy follows and flows into thought”. Whatever we focus our attention on and think about, we form an image of by imagining it.  As we think and imagine, we form an inner reality around an idea that brings it to life inside of us. This inner reality as a conceptualization forms an internal representation of an idea that’s created by the subconscious mind as a possible reality and creative template. The idea as an internal representation acts as a mental directive and set of instructions for the subconscious mind to use as a template for creating a correspondence as an actual outer reality or material manifestation. An idea is given to the subconscious mind much like a seed that it then grows and develops into a possible reality as an actual experience of the idea. The subconscious mind imagines the idea “as if” experiencing it, and creates a personalized version of the idea as it would occur naturally to it. This translation of a neutral idea into a personal experience creates the inward conditions necessary for the outward manifestation. In order to manifest something, we have to first create the “inner conditions” in which it would occur as a natural outer event. The inner conditions as a state produced by the imagined reality forms a vibrational frequency that the subconscious uses to connect with the elements in the outer environment that are of that same nature and organize them into an actual event that’s analogous to the internal representation.

 
Our imagination is what creates all of our experiences as an interpretation of sensory information that reforms it into an idea that correlates to the inner condition or state of mind perceiving it. We never see an idea as it exists a part from us, but rather as we remake it to be of the same nature as we are as a means of experiencing it. While we can safely say that the outer event itself is objective and neutral in nature, how we form an “experience” of the event is a personalized version. The conditions of the mind as its “state”, forms its vibratory frequency as a structuring (organizing) mechanism that reshapes (in the mind) all outer realities to match or be of the same “nature” (like) as the internal reality. The structure of our mind forms a model or paradigm, which is comprised of our memories, beliefs, values, preferences, temperament, disposition, attitude, and so on, all of which work together to interpret events through the very act of perceiving them, which personalizes (reshapes) them to fit into our story about things, giving us a consistent experience of reality that all falls into a generalized “theme” as a form of story-line.

 
Whatever we focus on, good or bad, want or not want, we picture in our mind as an experience of it, which sets the pattern as a frequency, which, when dwelled upon and thought about frequently, becomes a thought-form that eventually takes on a life of its own, and not only begins influencing our molecular structure, but begins forming an electromagnetic field of it’s own and begins attracting the means of its fulfillment in whatever corresponding elements are available in the immediate environment. We program our subconscious mind through imagined realities that have strong feelings and emotions attached to them as sensory stimulation that forms an emotional atmosphere around them. The imagined thought stimulates the nervous system and endocrine system, producing the equivalent chemistry of the idea as a simulation, which produces our emotional state that aligns our physical state with our mental state.

neurons

Our emotions always come as a natural response and by-product of our imagined thoughts, because our thoughts stimulate and produce the chemistry of our body, and alter our physical state to match our mental state. Once the physical state is produced as a thought and emotion, that emotional state is transmitted in and through the field governing the physical plane, stimulating everything within near proximity of it with the same emotions and attracting elements of that same shared state. Anything of the same “emotional state” can be used to create the idea associated with the state. The state and the idea that produced it are coherent and correlated and exist in a natural relationship with each other.

 
Our state, as a combination of a feeling, mental idea, and emotional chemistry, are magnetic (attractive) and become our “perceptual lens” that we look through that naturally sees all around us whatever matches or is complementary to our internal mental state. We don’t do this by changing or producing the elements themselves, but rather by how we experience them. We attract what’s of the same nature or idea by resonating with it. We stimulate and awaken that state in whatever person or object that shares the same qualities and a magnetic field is created as the shared vibration and we’re drawn to it, and it to us, or it stands out from everything else in our environment and we place our attention on it and begin consciously interacting with it. Through the conscious interaction itself we begin reorganizing it into the pattern of our thought by how we stimulate it, and we begin co-creating whatever idea served to form the union by what we share in common.

 
Whatever intention we have while focusing on an idea becomes the motivating factor behind that idea. If we attach a negative feeling to the idea, it becomes repulsive, yet still maintains its attractive factor. Likewise, if we associate a positive feeling to it, it becomes compelling, and we form a desire around it, also making it attractive. The idea itself, which exists independent of us as a neutral or universal idea, is attractive to both negative and positive associations, with the negative and positive simply representing our relationship with the idea that we’re attracting to us simply by focusing on it. While the positive (proton) charge, or negative (electron) charge may be used to polarize the idea, distinctly separating the positive from the negative, the neutron, or the neutral component as the idea itself which contains all potential of both the positive and negative aspects or feelings, remains attractive to both. So it’s not the positive or negative feeling associated to an idea that makes it attractive or repulsive, but simply paying attention to and thinking about the idea itself. Whatever we focus our attention on, good or bad, we magnetize and draw into our experience, whether it’s a positive experience or negative one. The feeling associated to the idea simply determines how we shape it in our mind and how we experience it, but we attract whatever we give our attention to and think about, regardless.

water is life

So, for example, the idea of “eating to prevent cancer” (the title of an article I recently read) forming our practice of eating around the idea of “cancer”, whether preventative or not, focuses our attention on the very thing we don’t want as the motive for organizing our eating habits, meaning that we’re acting to bring about the experience of cancer. The mind works by giving life to whatever we hold in our mind and think about. The mind doesn’t register “preventing cancer”, but has to picture or form the idea of cancer in order to know what to “not do”, while simultaneously associating diet with cancer. It doesn’t work by introducing a negative command, that says picture this, but don’t create it. As the mind pictures it and begins thinking about it, it begins creating it in the most basic sense as a form of command to the subconscious mind that also begins attracting it as well.

 
The pictures we form in our imagination by thinking about ideas, forms the creative template that sets our vibratory frequency. Instead of building our diet around the idea of preventing cancer, we should build it around the idea of creating health. We should focus on the idea of creating a healthy and active body by eating healthy food, knowing that in creating health, cancer won’t manifest! As we eat, focusing on the idea of taking care of ourselves and picturing vibrant health in our mind, while sensing and experiencing ourselves as being healthy, we instruct our subconscious to create a healthy body.

 
So always keep in mind, that the mind doesn’t work through negative commands or by associating positive or negative feelings and emotions to ideas, but rather creates whatever idea we hold in our mind and think about. Thoughts are shaped into thought-forms as an inner representation of the idea as an experience of it that provides the subconscious mind with the template necessary for creating it as a corresponding outer experience. Whatever we think about and the intention behind our thoughts that shape and motivate them, set the frequency we vibrate at that magnetizes and connects us to that same idea all around us. The mood or feeling we have, which nearly always determines what we’re thinking about and why we’re thinking about it, becomes our perceptual lens determining what we see in our ordinary situations and what stands out to us that matches our mood and is used to create more of the same type of feeling through how we experience things. By focusing on what we want to create and forming a positive intention around it, we work naturally by way of the laws that govern our mind to bring into our experience what we have a desire for that we then shape into a positive experience through the relationship we form with it as an outer equivalent of our inner feelings and thoughts.

Becoming Self-Aware: Learning to Observe Yourself

pentad
The starting point of all forms of Self development begins by becoming ‘aware’ of how your mind functions on a normal basis while you’re not tending it, or realizing what’s happening internally, and why. In order to begin observing ourselves requires us to learn how to take on a dissociated position as a form of “second person perspective”. We move outside of the direct experience we’re always involved in with our own internal dialoguing and feelings, and we simply take a perspective of observing our natural thoughts, and the natural processes that are always taking place within us as the basis for creating our everyday, moment by moment experiences as a relationship and interaction with everyone and everything around us. We’re constantly creating our life experiences by how we feel, think, and what memories we use as templates for rerunning and reforming our present experiences to mean the same thing, and be about the same thing as our past experiences.

 
The first key to all forms of introspection, self-reflection, and self-observation, is to realize that at no point in the process do we judge ourselves for what we feel and think, nor do we ever get involved in the dialogue of judging, explaining or justifying what we think, why we’re thinking it, and what we do. Because strangely enough, what you’ll find is that just as we defend our perspectives and behaviors to others, there’s an aspect of our internal dialogue that even justifies to ourselves why we think and do what we do as a means of making it okay, which allows us to “keep it”. Our goal here, in self-reflecting, is taking an objective perspective to simply begin realizing what type of thoughts we think on a regular basis, for no particular reason, or as a part of redundant thoughts born out of a theme we’re always playing out in our mind as a way of interpreting our outer reality by way of our inner reality which comes largely from a completely unaware state of automatic feelings, modes of thinking, and dwelling in memories of some sort that we replay constantly when we’re not focused on anything in particular, as a form of random or entertaining type of thoughts, that are for the most part habitual in nature.

inner light1

To begin this practice, you have to simply make a commitment to it, and remind yourself periodically throughout your day, when it’s convenient, to simply stop what you’re doing, and become aware of what you’ve been thinking about. What type of story we’re you running through your mind, what type of description or explanation were you giving about something, or what memory were you rethinking about? Sometimes we run abstract ideas through our mind from a TV show we watched, a line in a movie, a song that we heard, something someone said to us, an article we read, something we’re curious about, wondering about, or as a form of anticipation of what’s going to happen in a situation much like a form of prophecy. Whatever it is, simply notice what it is, and become aware of it. Allow yourself to simply notice what it is that runs through your mind unattended.

 
As you begin becoming aware of the type of thoughts you tend to think without intention, allow yourself to also recognize what memories you’re always in the process of thinking about and running through your imagination in a variety of scenarios, and that you use to form predictions of the future by reliving them in the present. Stop and observe what ideas you run through your mind as a means of anticipating an event or activity. Then, allow yourself to notice how you “feel” based on what you tend to think about. What emotions and moods you tend to be in as a result of your thinking and imagining. Notice that all memories as a generalized idea that plays out a theme of some sort which have a distinct mood or emotional atmosphere to them. As you replay them, it causes you to feel the same way you felt when you were experiencing the memory. Just by thinking about them, makes you feel the same way. Allow yourself to notice how your thoughts are connected to your feelings. How thoughts and emotions are always connected. When you think about happy experiences, you feel happy. When you think about sad experiences, you feel sad. And how these emotions, feelings, and moods is either what cause you to think about whatever you’re thinking about, or they’re produced because you’re thinking about whatever you’re thinking about.

universal

As you go through your day and someone or something causes an emotional reaction in you, have the awareness to stop in the middle of it, refrain from reacting to it, and simply observe what’s happening inside your body. Notice the distinct sensations you’re feeling in certain parts of your body that have certain qualities to them, such as, a tingling, jolting, buzzy, sinking, butterflies, sharp, dull, painful, arousing, and so on. As you recognize how it makes you feel, also notice what memory you associate the feeling too, and what behavior its prompting you to do. How do you want to act in reaction to it? What natural behavior would it normally cause in you if you weren’t refraining from acting? Notice the connection between an emotional trigger, the memory you associate to it, and the behavior inherent in it. This is what forms “reactions” as unconscious behaviors that are formed from a memory of some sort. Again, don’t judge or try to justify what’s happening, simply notice it. Become aware of it.

 
Also, as you go through your day, allow yourself to notice how the emotional energy of others feels. Become aware that you’re constantly picking up on the emotions of others, and they’re affecting you in a somewhat indirect and subtle, if not very direct manner. Then, as in the previous lessons, allow yourself to notice how their emotions “affect” (or infect) you by entering into or moving through you, and stimulating in you those same emotions and feelings. Become aware of how your body is being stimulated by the emotions being displayed around you. Notice how you can sense the energy of a room just by walking into it from the outside. How the room holds the energy of the people and activities being conducted or experienced by the people within it. And again, simply notice how the emotional atmosphere forms the same type of feelings in you just by being “in it”.

turned on

As you become more self-aware, you simultaneously become more aware of others and your environment. You can start becoming aware of what is normally happening inside of you and too you by your environment and your own thoughts. You can become aware of what memories you tend to hang onto and continue living out of that shaping your current perception of things, what you connect to first internally, then externally, and what mood or emotional state you tend to live out of as a result. You can begin becoming aware of how others directly affect and influence you just through the nature of the energy exchange that’s taking place as feelings, thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. You can begin shedding light on what’s normally operating in a habitual manner outside of your direct awareness. Just the awareness alone helps you to begin taking conscious control over your own thoughts, imagining, and emotional states.

 
We can only work with what we have a conscious awareness and basic understanding of. Becoming self-aware is the first step to moving into the practices that involve self-mastery by being able to not only control your own state of mind, but being able to direct your life by intentionally using your awareness of how feelings, thoughts, emotions, memories, and what we imagine as live scenarios directly affect how we first create our experiences, then use them as future memories to create more of the same type of experiences. We can obtain a new level of awareness around our relationships and how others act to influence us, what they activate and bring out in us, and how they serve to develop those tendencies in us. By becoming aware of what we were previously unaware of, we can see how it operates on us, through us, and because of us, and we can begin consciously controlling it and redirecting it in a more favorable manner. We can learn how to use positive memories and thoughts to automatically produce a positive state of mind. We learn how to stay present in our life instead of being caught up in endless distractions that keep us unconscious in the most basic sense. As with all things . . . awareness is the key! We can only work with what we’re aware of.

Conscious Programming – “The Art of Self-Creation”

centering
The conscious mind has the ability to program the subconscious mind, yet we have to first realize that they actually speak (work by) different languages. The conscious mind is abstract and thinks in terms of verbal language as words that lack behavior as actualizing, whereas the subconscious mind is experiential and emotional in nature and speaks in terms of pictures and sensory images as life-like realities that mimic actual memories. The conscious mind programs the subconscious (body awareness) through the imagination as an inner vision that transforms an abstract idea into a conceptualized reality. The imagination as the mind’s eye takes a basic idea, and through the process of applying it to a specific situation or set of circumstances, reinterprets it by personalizing it. We imagine it “as if” we were actually experiencing it as a real life situation. This creates the idea as a living pattern equivalent to a memory, which the subconscious uses to produce behavior that “acts out” the same scenario as a real life experience.

 
By imagining the desired idea as a reality, we not only create a pattern for application, but also create it as a believable possibility that we simultaneously identify with through the enactment. This creates the desired reality as an inner reality that the subconscious superimposes on the outer reality, organizing and reinterpreting it accordingly. The mind constructs realities by how it composes ideas to give them meaning. The meaning we give an idea determines how we experience it. Meaning shapes experience. It takes the imagined reality as an actual experience, which integrates and incorporates it through an accumulative effect that modifies the current paradigm as a system of beliefs based on memory (living realities) as a unification of the physical with the spiritual that provides a new template for generating thematic realities as analogous correspondences. It creates experiences that are of the same nature as a form of theme.

universal

We take an abstract idea as a universal theme, and create an inner reality as a template that produces a frequency that’s used to magnetize and organize the outer reality as being of a similar nature. It won’t be exactly the same as the inner imagining, because it can only use elements in the immediate environment that are of the same frequency and therefore lend themselves to telling the same type of story. The outer experience will be of the same nature and basic idea of the imagined reality based on what’s available in the immediate environment that can be used to orchestrate the experience as a congruent theme.

 
Ideas, as feeling experiences, represent a vibratory frequency that attracts what is of the same nature and therefore has the same inherent tendencies that can be used to express the same idea as a joint reality. Whatever is of a different frequency, likewise, is simultaneously repelled. We only “see” ourselves (what matches our paradigm) in others and our environment, even though many other possibilities coexist within the same space and time. What is of the same nature as us we not only notice and give attention to (it stands out), we simultaneously allow to enter into us (energetic sympathy), stimulating an inner reaction (resonance) to it as a result. This is what we refer to as chemistry that produces a natural interaction based on an affinity of sorts.

unity

When we allow ideas to readily and willingly be introduced into our mind, and take hold by thinking about them, we are allowing ourselves to be “programmed” by others or an external source. We then become subject to it because it acts to “tune us” to the same vibratory frequency as a joint reality that we create inward using our own mind. We allow ourselves to be determined – created – by outside forces. This is the result of the subconscious and passive aspect of the mind as our animalistic (body) nature that can be readily trained and domesticated by outside influences that we align with and allow to control us. We are influenced by another mind that imposes a direct influence on us, dominates by introducing an active force as an idea that’s willingly accepted by our passive and receptive mind, that controls us by absorbing and commanding our will.

 
When we give our will to the service of another by conforming to them, they act to control us and determine our behavior, which also shapes our identity accordingly. We enter into a sympathetic relationship with them, and through suggestion that acts to modify and manipulate our inner reality, we respond to them in a very predictable way. They train us to behave in a certain way by how they interact with us. Through the emotional quality of their communication, which acts as the hook for seating ideas in the imagination, allowing them to take hold long enough to develop them into personal realities by thinking about them in a compulsive manner. They “give us” emotional thoughts that are theirs, and we adopt them and then act to develop them as our own. This forms the basis of what we refer to as the “group mind” which is ultimately a form of subliminal mind entrainment designed to train people to certain types of behavior that they mistaken for their own.

 
Once we understand how we use our mind to self-create by creating internal realities that become the living patterns for outer realities of the same nature, we can withdraw our mental and emotional power from the group mind, and use our imagination to self-create in unique and individual ways instead. We can program our own mind and body by creating inner experiences of our desired reality, then enhancing them with sensory details, while infusing them with very positive emotions that magnetize them by making them compelling. Positive attracts and grows, negative repels and diminishes. To “become” by growing ourselves, is achieved through positive and active means, while allowing our negative, self-sabotaging aspects to fall away and subside, because we no longer keep them alive in our imagination.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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