Imagination – “As Opposed to Creative Visualization”

eye
The tendency to represent the idea of “imagining something” as “visualizing it”, can make the idea seem fairly confusing. Visualizing indicates forming inner images, pictures and scenes as movies that play out in the mind as a form of anticipated or wished for experience. Then, because its portrayed this way, many get confused as to “how to” visualize, what it means exactly, and believe that it means to see fully detailed, colored images and scenes that play out with precision and detail, and while it certainly can be this way, especially for a well developed imagination, for most people it’s usually much more impressionistic. Most visualization resembles the type of image we see as a reflection in glass or water, or a reflection in a dark, shiny surface where it’s more shadow-like and formed, yet not particularly detailed. This resembles what is referred to as “thought-forms” that exist in the astral field of the mind as shadowy images that we form through thinking about or dwelling on ideas, or recalling a memory of some kind.

 
The imagination however, is a faculty of the mind that forms a full sensory experience that while it’s main component is visual images and impressionistic shapes, it also focuses heavily on hearing and sounds, feelings as intuitive and as touching the surface of material reality, any forms of smells that would be inherent in the experience, and taste whenever appropriate, as well as the internal dialogue as thoughts that we naturally have while engaging in any type of experience and the emotions the experience elicits. Our inner dialogue is what we are telling ourselves ‘about’ the experience that makes it mean something. The imagination takes an inspired idea as unformed, and shapes it into a full 3-D sensory reality that is realistic and believable, and therefore possible. The true use of the imagination however, places the greatest emphasis on “feelings” that we have as a result of the inner experience we are having. The feeling is the full-body intuitive sensation that blends the visual into a holistic experience as a form of memory that is complete with emotions, thoughts and meaning that brings realization around an idea that can only be obtained through the experience of it. This reality formed in the imagination through thinking, creates a form of template that makes us a channel for the imagined idea to become a reality as an outer expression that’s a correspondence to the inner experience.

lost in space

This is the creative power of the mind to create experience by first creating it internally while shaping it with sensory detail and definition that sets the vibratory patterning that attracts and organizes the outer experience as a correspondence. The outer experience is not exact to the imagined one, although it can be, but is rather analogous to the inner experience. It’s of the same nature and theme as the internal experience, yet modified according to the elements available in the immediate surroundings, and the will, personality and interactive quality of those participating in the orchestration of the outer experience. Because the outer requires other people, situations and events, the original vision is modified accordingly as a basic requirement to incorporate the ideas and desires of all who partake in the over-all experience that is co-created as a shared reality.

 
This is why the emphasis is always placed on the “feeling” of the experience rather than the visual aspect. Visually it may be entirely different than you imagined it, yet it will feel the same. It’ll be the same type of idea as a form of theme, which is being illustrated in a modified and varied manner. The feeling, as the vibratory frequency is what composes and structures the experience to be of a certain patterning that beautifully conforms to the influences that everyone participating contributes, while maintaining the same basic idea as the essence of the over-all experience. You will recognize the fulfillment of your wish, not by what it looks like, but by what it feels like as you realize you’re in the process of having it.

Conscious Programming – “The Art of Self-Creation”

centering
The conscious aspect of the 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.

emanation

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.

 
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.

cycles

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. Fill your mind constantly with what you desire to experience and how you want to feel as a result. Sense yourself in very desirable ways that will shape your identity accordingly and will form your character as the means of bringing ideas into physical form as experiences that are self-perpetuated and performed by you!

Self-Mastery – The Power of State and Learning to Create our Vibratory Frequency

3 selves
Many people use the term “vibration”, or more accurately “vibratory frequency” without ever really understanding or describing what it means in the practical sense. Our vibratory frequency is our “state of mind” or the quality of consciousness as our “soul’s mood” that we are embodying and allowing to express through us at any given moment. This is because we all have a primary state as a general mood that we’re ‘in’ most of the time. Our mood is the interactive composition of a handful of emotions that we experience and live out of most of the time. Our mood is an extension of our natural disposition and temperament that first forms as our basic personality. It can be thought of as our “soul’s vibration” that we came into this life with that reestablishes itself in childhood as our personality that’s reformed based on how we adapt to our body, family role, and life circumstances, that’s then further developed through our conditioning based on the mood and atmosphere around us, which stimulate those same qualities in us, bringing them out in us. These qualities as our general mood are then developed through the behavioral dynamics being dramatically acted out around us that we’re apart of. Our soul’s vibration determines how we enter into relationship with everything else, and what parts of us are amplified, emphasized, and strengthened by way of our fundamental relationships. Our state-of-mind forms our attitude and aptitude as the creative capacity of our soul’s expression forming the type of experiences we create out of the events of our life, and the lessons as opportunities they offer for natural development.

 
Our general mood is the frequency we vibrate to, that emanates from us and stimulates everything around us through resonance, awakening the same qualities in others. Our mind, which is a field of electromagnetic energy that envelops and permeates our body, becomes our perceptual lens as a filtering mechanism that we look through, only “seeing” (recognizing and pulling out from our overall environment) what matches it (can be explained, described, and validated by way of it) as a quality and level of consciousness. Our state as a vibration has patterning inherent in it that filters objective reality activating and bringing to the foreground through an interaction what’s of the same nature and can be formed into the same life-pattern as a theme that interprets and reshapes everything by forming it into a common storyline. We only see in others what matches and can be used to tell our life’s story as an expression of our emotional state.

energy transformation

Emotions form themes as the “type of stories” that emerge out of them as a natural form of self-expression “of” that emotion. Emotions are what connect us to everything around us. Our emotional influence alters other people’s emotional state to be equivalent to ours. We stimulate in others the same emotions we’re employing and outwardly demonstrating or emanating. People sense each other energetically through their emotional states without a word being spoken between them. Emotions are universal in nature, what we all share in common, and while we all have different thoughts and memories that we associate to our emotions, the nature of the experience we create through the story we tell as the expression of the emotion, will always amplify and increase, transfer to others, and act to give us more of the same feeling. The thoughts that we associate to the emotion are unique to us and different from everyone else, but the emotion that motivates the “telling” and the behaviors that result from it, are the same for everyone.

 
Whatever mood we’re in determines what we see in others and the situations we’re involved with and what we awaken in them by how we interact first energetically, then as an actual interaction. Our interaction comes as the employment of a set of behaviors as a natural expression of the shared state, that becomes the basis of our experiences that act naturally to tell a certain type of story that serve to prove and validate it, strengthening our story about things as a variation of a memory that forms the very nature of our soul’s vibration. We are at once vibrating and sending off a signal while simultaneously being attracted to that same vibration all around us. We are resonating and blending with the same vibration in others, forming coherence as a new pattern that’s a joint experience of the shared attitude. Our moods become our perception which shapes our reality, and reshapes others to play a part in our reality. Our mind is always projecting onto the outer world the same reality that’s first formed inwardly. The inner and the outer enter into relationship with each other, shifting the vibration of both to be of the same frequency as an equalization that forms a new pattern through a new combination. This is the basic law of evolution as an adaptation to our environment, and how we also adjust our environment to be like us by how we see it, how we treat it, and through our behavior in relationship with it, and the story we fashion out of the nature of our interaction with the same qualities in another that we ourselves posses.

vp eye
The foundation practice that should precede all other practices, and will eliminate the need for many stages of practice, is to learn how to consciously create and intentionally produce our own state of mind by using our mind with a sense of awareness in a deliberate fashion. Whatever state we intentionally produce will determine the nature of our experiences and the reality they create, as well as what we act to bring out in others, and in doing so act to develop in both through our interaction, and how we sense ourselves by way of our own self-created experiences. Whatever frequency we keep ourselves tuned to as our mood that we walk through life with, defines and becomes the limitations imposed on our creative capacity for self-creation, or for acting as a transformative catalyst for others, and becomes what we contribute to the greater mind of mass-group consciousness.

 
All our actions are recorded as thought-forms (memory) that are infused into the Astral plane of the Earth, that are being transmitted on carrier waves within the unified-field to everything around us. Our ability to self-create through personalized realities as projections of our own mind onto others and our environment is how we’re also contributing to the evolutionary process of humanity as a whole. Mass consciousness as the group mind is created through emotional realities as projections of individuals that amplify and intensify the emotion that motivates them. The emotion that shapes our imaginary realities is also the means by which its transmitted as a form of communication that connects us to everything else through the emotion we share in common.

 
The primary practice needed for self-mastery, is to learn how to regulate your own emotional state and maintain it throughout your day without letting the emotional projections of others alter your state by taking on their emotions. This requires not only intentionally learning to use emotions in a deliberate manner like a tool for tuning your vibratory frequency, but also learning how to manage your own emotions, and preventing other people’s emotions from entering into your body, taking hold, altering your state through an emotional reaction that acts to control you. This begins by becoming aware of how you’re constantly being influenced by the people around you, and noticing how their emotional projections stimulate you internally through sensations that activate energy in you as a form of reaction. Noticing how you’re emotionally triggered into reactive states. Then, self-reflecting and noticing what memories you associate to the emotions being triggered in you, and what story is inherent in that memory, that you begin playing out in your imagination that motivates your behaviors in response to it. What type of reaction is it prompting? As you’re being triggered, become aware of what’s happening and refrain from reacting to it, while noticing what the nature of your reaction would be. What type of behavior did it activate in response to it? How did it make you feel, and what did you start thinking about because of how it made you feel? As you learn to refrain from emotionally reactive behavior, and become aware of the sensation of the emotion entering your body and penetrating your inner being, altering your state of consciousness, you can begin viewing emotions in an objective manner, while prohibiting them from taking hold and expressing through you.

vibrant
Likewise, you can begin recognizing the emotional state you’re in when you perform certain activities that determines “how” you perform it. When you’re at your best doing something, what mood are you in that caused you to perform at that level or in that way? What qualities were you embodying at the time that produced a heightened form of experience? For example, if you’re getting ready to conduct a meeting, and you want to perform in the best possible way to ensure the most successful communication, what mood would you have to be in to do that? If you’re getting ready to go out on a first date with someone, how do you want it to go, and what mood do you want to be in to impose the influence and behaviors necessary to make it go that way? If you’re getting ready to have a serious talk with your teenage son about an uncomfortable subject, how would you have to “be” in order to create an open and safe environment for an intimate and honest conversation to take place? Start asking yourself these types of questions, and begin practicing intentionally setting your mood that’s ideal for whatever it is you’re getting ready to do.

 
Allow yourself to begin recognizing that the nature of our experiences comes as the direct expression of the mood we’re in. Our mood, as our state-of-mind, has whole realities inherent in them, and causes us to behave in certain ways. They determine what we focus on and give our attention to, what we tell ourselves about what we’re focused on that makes them mean something, what memories we associate to how we feel and run through our minds as a kind of preview for coming attractions, reliving them forming a kind of template for creating more of the same type of experiences, and what we anticipate or expect as we walk through our day that matches our mood or is a product of our mood.

 
Whatever vibration (thematic patterning) we tune (program) ourselves to determine what type of thoughts we access and draw into us, and what scenario’s we run through our mind as the precursor for creating corresponding realities of the same nature. We can identify our frequency by recognizing the theme to “our story” that we’re always in the process of telling ourselves, and how that forms our perception of the world through our style for interpreting it. By observing our own tendencies, we can recognize what patterns we’re programmed to and always in the process of using to form our experiences of reality. This is a form of self-awareness that brings insight as self-realization into what are normally unconscious or hidden aspects of ourselves that we’re acting out without realizing that that’s what we’re doing.

vibration
Most of us believe our interpretation of what we call reality is being made in an objective way and that everyone else is having the same type of experience and telling the same type of story as we are, when in fact, nothing is further from the truth. The truth is that everyone involved in and a part of the same event is forming a unique and personalized version of it as their “experience” of it. Everyone is noticing and reacting to different component in the overall event itself. Everyone is abstracting only a handful of details out of the millions of actual details within the situation, and forming them into a storyline that matches their overall storyline in life. Our overall storyline is a theme that conveys meaning as what we could call our parent or main pattern, which produces fractal patterns as offspring of the same type of story that’s used to interpret everything else, telling a story about it that gives it the same meaning.

 
What we call “reality” is three-fold in nature, and we are always creating reality on three levels simultaneously through how we perceive and interpret it to give it meaning. The meanings we give life through the stories we tell about it are an expression of our paradigm or model-of-the-world, and simultaneously means something about us, about others, and about the way the world is. The story we tell about others or the way things are is the same story that as we tell it, we create our experience of ourselves by playing a role in our own story. We’re always creating everything else in our “image” and with our “likeness”, assigning them the same attributes and characteristics that we ourselves posses. This “molding” ability comes as a product of our mind as our paradigm which is a dynamic matrix of interwoven patterns that comprise and are congruent with a larger pattern, which is our “vibratory frequency”. This frequency as a larger pattern forms our inner nature and the nature of all our outer expressions as a mental and emotional projection. How we see others and the world around us is what shows us what our “frequency” is.
By recognizing the theme to our own story we can see how our mind is constructed out of a group of predominate memories, and by realizing that and becoming aware of what we’re doing, we can begin working with it in a conscious manner to develop it in new ways that will shift our vibratory frequency allowing us to begin telling a new type of story through our natural perceptions. We can either transform the memories we’re using as the basis for our story, or we can pick a new group of memories that will naturally act to tell a new type of story about things that expresses a different mood and conveys a different meaning. Self-awareness is the key that forms the foundation necessary for personal transformation through self-mastery. Disciplined action taken on in an intentional manner to work on ourselves to reshape ourselves into a new form as a new model for expressing and creating, first in the inner world of our imagination, then in the outer world as a mental projection of our inner reality.

The Power of the Imagination – “Becoming the Author and Main-Star of our own Life”

birth
The imagination is greatly misunderstood by many people, even though we all have one, in terms of its true power. While the imagination can be used in a very creative way to produce and develop new ideas and works of art, it is also used in the more mundane sense to create fantasies as delusions by making up stories about things, or by replaying memories over and over as new variations that keep us always creating out of the past. Either way we use it, it provides a form of mental construct as the preliminary blueprint or thematic template for turning an idea into a physical reality.

 
Many confuse imagining with visualization, and as a result, draw the conclusion that they can’t visualize. Yet everyone can visualize and are doing it all the time through a form of recollection (memory as a mental imprint), or simply conceptualizing an idea as a way grasping it, or playing out possibilities as a form of anticipation. The imagination, while it works largely out of visualization, also works via all the senses, and comes just as readily as hearing something, feeling a certain way, sensing touch, smell, and so on. To imagine something is to create a sensory experience of it. Because senses are interconnected, and one automatically stimulates the others through a chain-of-association, no matter what triggers the imaginative process, a full reality as an inner experience of some sort is what results.

 
Memory or ideas thought about and imagined, come as a form of “invisible-translucent image” that’s similar to a reflection on glass, or the reflection on a dark surface (mirroring quality). We can replay memories in our mind while starring off into the space around us shifting our attention from the actual reality which fades into the background while giving our attention to the imaginary reality taking its place. We then play one reality over the top of the other one. While imaginary realities don’t have near the prominence of the actual outer physical reality, we still feel, see, hear, and recall what we were thinking about in full detail, and they produce a pronounced “internal affect” that colors our outer experiences to be of the same “feeling state”. This quality as more of an invisible, translucent image, that’s superimposed over the outer reality, becomes our “perceptual lens” that we “look through” and use to interpret our outer reality to be of the same nature or thematic idea. Through this translucent imagery as a lens, we restructure our outer reality, by abstracting, illuminating and activating only what matches it and can be used to form the same patterning as a feeling state, while not even noticing the elements that don’t lend themselves to expressing and creating more of the same feeling-states. Our attention operates as a form of “activating system” that pulls out what’s of the same idea while causing whatever isn’t to return to a latent, inactive state, and fade into the background. Through this means, we “filter” our outer, objective reality to match our internal imagined reality.

allseeing eye
Whatever we think about and imagine, which simultaneously forms an intention and expectation, becomes the lens as an ordering –organizing mechanism that literally determines what we “see” by how our mind restructures it by forming a personal interpretation of it. Because of this natural ability of the mind, we literally create our own interpretation of reality, and everybody sees something different in the same situation based on this filtering mechanism produced by the imagination as the internal reality that becomes the template for rearranging the outer reality as a reconfiguration, while noticing only the things that can be readily incorporated in the story the internal reality tells, while completely ignoring or simply failing to notice anything that doesn’t naturally lend itself or acts to contradict our story.

 
The imagination is the faculty of the mind that structures a dynamic matrix out of accumulated memory, forming a mental paradigm through the creation and synthesis of the memories it’s comprised of, that transforms the outer to match the inner. The structure of the mind, as its vibratory frequency (corresponding series of interwoven patterns) literally reshapes the outer, objective and neutral reality, to be the same through how it’s interpreted to tell the same story that the paradigm is designed (structured) to tell. We first create our experiences out of our paradigm based on synthesizing accumulated memory, forming them into a new memory of the same kind of story, keeping ourselves programmed to the same type of memory as a life theme.

 

Memory is created in the imagination out of an actual event that we reshape, personalizing it, by giving it meaning. The meaning we give it forms the story we tell about it, which simultaneously means the same thing about us, about others, and about the way the world is in general. It defines us, the nature of our relationships, and the perceived conditions we live in. This accumulated memory forms a theme that tells a certain type of story. This thematic story becomes our perceptual filter that only creates more of the same type of experiences over and over, by how we think, what we’re always in the process of telling ourselves, and what we see or don’t see in the world around us. We begin interpreting everything by way of this theme, and then we identify with our own stories which simultaneously shape our identity. After a while, if we’re not telling (living) the same type of story, we don’t know who we are, or how to tell a different story. And so we live out of the same story as a mental projection most, if not all of our life, without ever realizing it’s our “own creation”, formed and kept alive through our imagination. Replayed and imprinted in our mind-field (Astral) that surrounds our body, like a reflection on glass that we look through to form our perception.

 
This is the most basic meaning of karma. We live out of the same type of memories as a storyline that creates us according to the identity required to “live” that story as the author of it and main character in it, that forms our perceptual lens as our paradigm that determines what we see, how we feel, and what story we act naturally to tell. We continue creating out of the same basic type of memory, forming the same realities, relationships, and interactive dynamics because we don’t realize that we’re actually the one creating it, and also, the only one who has the power to change it.

 

We can form purely creative ideas in our imagination that replicate actual memory. Because memory is created and replayed in the imagination and used to create our experiences, by imagining ideas with full sensory enhancement and feeling, we can provide our own mind with new ideas and patterns that will transform and evolve our perceptual lens to be able to tell new kinds of stories. In doing this, we simultaneously evolve our identity to new and higher forms of experience. We can keep ourselves in a constant state of growth rather than settling into a mundane and methodical existence where we live out of the same mind-set for a lifetime, missing the opportunity to create ourselves anew in every moment by learning to operate our own mind and exercising our creative abilities in the most primal sense . . . . by self-creating through our ability to produce virtual memories!

Understanding Laws of the Mind and how we Create Reality “The Mind doesn’t know how to process a Negative”

lost in space
Whatever we focus on and think about, good or bad, we act to create as an internal, personal reality, which strengthens and adds to that reality in the objective sense. Thought is what directs life-force energy, and uses it to give life to the thoughts, growing them into a living reality as an imagined conceptualization. Random thought, given to us as a form of suggestion, plants a seed-idea in our mind, which are readily taken in without resistance, allowed to take hold and grow within us as a full imaginary scenario. We picture ideas as a reality in order to grasp them or get a working understanding of how they function and what they imply as a result. Once we conceptualize them as a living reality, we put them into context of some sort, usually within our own lives, and begin developing them by giving them details, which personalize them by conforming them to us as a form of adaptation that has the potential to modify it into numerous variations as possible applications.

 
Once we form an inner picture of an idea as a virtual reality, we experience an emotional reaction to our own thoughts, which marries that emotion to the thought, and working together we continue to develop it as a modified reality that expresses the emotion within the context of the thought that shapes it through meaning as a story-line that gives it significance. Meaning (emotional thought) is the composer (forms a story) and the significance it has determines how it plays out as a story within the context we imagine it in that produces a meaningful and therefore significant outcome.

 
The reason why the approach to “fighting” or the “war against” any idea never works, and in fact only acts to create more of the idea itself by making it even more prevalent, is because it fails to operate within the natural laws of the mind, which is the builder of realities based on what we focus on, give our attention too, the emotional charge connected to it, and the thought-process they elicit that pictures and develops the very idea you’re trying to vanquish by opposing it. The only purpose identifying a problem has is to determine what the solution would be, or what would serve to counteract or resolve it. Once this is determined, in order to get people to create the idea that resolves the problem, you have to talk about the solution while infusing it with a positive emotional charge that inspires people towards it. By talking about what you “do want” to create, you likewise plant that seeded thought into their minds and they will naturally act to develop it by thinking about it into a believable reality that can be implemented in a practical manner within their everyday life.

molecules of brain
This is a classic example of how we error (sin) when not working within the laws of nature because we fail to understand them and don’t know how to use our own mind, which operates perfectly according to law, to consciously create the desired reality instead of creating more of the very thing we fear and were ultimately traumatized by. By realizing this fully will help you to quit talking and posting endlessly about the problems and what you don’t want more of, and begin instead talking and posting only about the reality you will act as a seed to plant in the minds of others who will serve to develop them based on the attitude and emotion you use as the nature out of which the idea is expressed, to begin increasing it until it becomes a form of mass consciousness that eventually takes on a life of it’s own, and begins transforming the global mindset ushering in a new way of thinking. We have to become the change we’re seeking to create by demonstrating it, not acting to amplify the problem itself by complaining about or criticizing it while offering no solution.

 
Often, the reason people don’t talk about positive solutions to worldly problems is because they don’t know what they are. Some don’t even talk about the problems because they’re not sure what they are, and have to wait for someone else to tell or show them what they are, and why they should be concerned about them. Thinking of solutions or alternatives takes a great deal more intelligence and creativity than simply pointing out the problems, which often doesn’t really require much. Many spout out lofty sayings as what they imagine the answer is, yet give no directives or defined methods for actually “doing them”. There is a real tendency amongst people to talk endlessly about the content of an idea, while never discussing the methods for actually doing or applying it. When it comes to “how to do it”, they go silent, sit and stare, or change the subject. Yet the only way an idea can produce an effect is if action is taken based the idea to bring it into the practical realm of everyday life. Ideas that simply remain thoughts or imagined ideas, while they may elevate the mood of a situation, or give someone else an idea that they will develop into a method, seldom ever come into fruition in the material realm, which always requires “doing”.

 
So just allow yourself to quietly contemplate the true power of the spoken word, which is spoken both internally as thought (internal dialogue), as well as externally as the expression of the thought, and train your mind to only think and speak what you want to manifest as a personal reality . . . because it will. The story you tell about anything demonstrates your belief about that idea as a conceptualization that becomes the symbolic template for acting it out in some fashion within the context of your life to turn it into an actual experience. Usually without ever realizing, it’s your own creation. The one that you bought into and acted to willingly create by developing it as a living reality in your own mind, which then became the basis for projecting it onto others and your environment by living the story as if were true . . . making it real (for you anyway). You then tell others your story which gives them the information they need to cooperate in playing a role within your story to co-create it through the nature of how they interact with you, and treat you as a result.

Train your mind to only think the thoughts you want to manifest as a personal reality. Only speak the thoughts that you’ve developed into the reality you want by the story they tell, because they will literally act to call forth that reality in the mind of everyone you speak it too. Just the act of speaking elicits mental images as a form of internal computation of what you’re describing as your talking. Once they imagine it based on what you say and how you say it, transforming your words into mental images, they begin participating in co-creating your reality by supporting and validating it, making it appear even more real and true through their cooperation!

 
Words call forth realities by how they are pictured in the imagination. Be aware and creative in your thoughts, and discipline yourself to only think about what you want to make real, and by all means only speak to others the reality you want and are unconsciously choosing to call forth in their minds, making it real for them also. Learn to tell stories that enliven and empower yourself within your own life, and make you out to be the person you want to be. We are always the ones fully responsible for creating who we are by the stories we tell about things that make them mean something. Whatever they mean also means something about us, about others, and the way things are in general. All of which we created within the context of our own mind without fully realizing that that’s what we were doing, and are always in the process of doing! Once you realize that you’re making it all up . . . you might as well make up cool stuff! Don’t you think?

Creation, Transformation, and Evolution – “Laws that Govern the Creative Process”

Creative Transformation
While many people see creating something from scratch as a ‘new’ creation, to be considerably different than transforming something that already exists into something different, they are in fact, achieved through the same fundamental set of laws that are simply applied in unique ways as variables of the same laws as more of a continuous creative process that serves to expand and evolve the original creation. While we imagine evolution to mean progression as a steady form of improvement, it’s actually a process of adaptation, absorption, and synthesis, which operates in both directions, and can just as easily cause a regression or very undesirable changes.

 
In order to transform an existing system, you have to remix its constitution somehow, reformulating it, by what qualities of consciousness it blends with, takes on, and uses as a means of expressing through those qualities, and recreating itself to be more like those by how it incorporates them. We tend to think of creation as a fixed idea that produces and end product, when in reality it’s a continuous flow of consciousness as information that’s constantly undergoing transformation as a form of shape shifting (reconfiguration) moment-by-moment based on what it enters into relationship with, exists in near proximity of, or willingly and actively chooses to take on as a conscious (aware) form of creation as transformation. Whether we are aware of it, or unaware of it, the process is the same. The object becomes to become aware of the creative laws, and employ them intelligently to determine how you create within your life as a continuous process of evolving into higher and more complex forms.

 
Awareness and an in-depth understanding of the laws of creation give us tools as a process to employ with full awareness in a deliberate manner. To consciously create you have to begin with an ideal as a vision of what you’re creating , then only engage with that same idea as a quality of consciousness that, when incorporated and fully synthesized will act to naturally transform us in desirable ways. It can also be used as an evaluation tool for recognizing what we don’t want to get involved with, that will only serve to move us away from our ideal. By noticing and clearly recognizing the character of the person or entity (business, group, organization, etc.) you’re contemplating getting involved with as a relationship conducted through an interaction of some sort, we can realize how they will influence and reformulate the current situation and naturally act to evolve it accordingly.

 

When we willingly (or without awareness) get involved with people or entities that serve to stimulate and bring out negative qualities, we have to realize, that that’s how they will serve to transform and evolve us as a result of our interaction, which is really an infusing of consciousness as qualities that express in distinct ways and in a consistent manner. The basic laws for creation, represented by the Tetrahedron in Sacred Geometry, is the Monad as the basic mind or paradigm unified as a quality of conscious that holds a vibratory frequency, that separates from itself – projects itself onto the environment, forming the Dyad (energetic form of mitosis), seeing and interacting (resonance as perception) only with what’s of the same nature (quality of consciousness), connected by their centers or ‘inner nature’ as being within the same vibratory range, and blending through the interaction as energetic sympathy (enters into and produces an effect), modifying both to a new vibration as the combination that forms a new constitution and expresses in new and varied ways based on how these shared qualities were integrated by both entities. By blending and mingling energies, a new configuration is formed as behaviors that naturally result from the interaction itself as qualities that are developed into a dynamic pattern as a form of living drama, that’s an exchange of consciousness that equilibrated. This modifies the vibration of both by forming a new pattern as an interference pattern (combination and assimilation of the two) that expresses through that pattern as a joint-reality that’s literally a form of co-creation!

Cosmic_creativity

So whatever qualities we embody and express through at any given moment, alters us accordingly. Another way of looking at the Tetragrammation, is as a concentrated attention on a memory as a thematic pattern for reality, infused with strong emotions, formed into a conceptual living-reality in the imagination, making it believable, that serves to program and imprint that image as a representation of a vibration with patterning in it to produce corresponding realities as personal experience, by producing the behaviors (both consciously and unconsciously) that manifest it within our everyday life as an associated or analogous idea. This is because it sets the primary pattern as a thematic idea that works through adaptation within the immediate environment we exist within, and has to use the elements within our environment that are available and of the same nature, in order to compose the same ‘type’ of pattern as the mental image produced in the imagination. The reality produced will give us the same ‘feeling’ as an experience as the quality of consciousness imbued in the imagined form that served to give it life.

 
You see feelings are actually how we experience vibration with patterns of potential realities inherent in them, that we use to first produce the reality as an internal image by embodying the feeling, which once it expresses as the reality of that feeling, multiplying and regenerating, gives us more of that same feeling through the outer experience of it. The feeling as a vibratory frequency that has generative (life) power within it to produce certain types of realities as a thematic composition that attracts, sees, and combines elements that naturally share the same vibration as potential co-creators for reconfiguring all elements into a unique variation, that still holds true to the original theme, and is identified not by what it looks like, but by the feeling we get while having the experience. The feeling as a vibration is the creative mechanism, the expressive power, and the end result. How it ‘shows up’ maybe quite different than how we imagined it, yet the feeling it gives us will be the same. You’ll ‘know it’ by how it feels in the moment when you’re experiencing it. Images or symbolic forms that comprise a structured design are representations of the laws at work to configure a reality by a unique formula that acts as its signature. The reality it represents is identifying its vibratory frequency as the reality it naturally generates as a feeling.

 
To transform an existing creation (reality) that appears fixed or stationary in some way, realize and form a clear picture in your mind of what you want to transform it to, what it would look like as an actual experience, and let the feeling it gives you rise up inside and fill you with its sensations, as you begin resonating with it by identifying with it as being the same (in the experience of it), while noticing the attributes and qualities that comprise its character, then stay centered in those feeling-qualities by anchoring them in your mind and body as a feeling sensation, and using the inner-representation as a mental filter for identifying what’s of the same constitution in others and in your environment, and only engage with what’s of the same character and will act naturally to stimulate and co-create the reality that’s a natural by-product of that character as a congruent mind-set and behaviors.

 
You want to avoid anyone that you’ll have to persuade or convince, because they are not at this level of consciousness or vibration and will always be acting out of their natural constitution and can only serve to influence and alter the situation accordingly. Only engage with and enter into relationship with those of the same character and vision (type of reality) as you’re aiming to consciously create. Don’t make the mistake of pulling somebody along, where you’re acting to modify them to your vision, unless they are a subordinate and don’t play a key role in the creation itself, but are willing to adapt themselves to the situation by playing an indirect role in it. Resistance is never a good thing and usually acts in some way to devolve (or pull you away) you rather than evolve you (move you deeper into it).

Self-creation and Personal Transformation

 

The Art of Goal Setting – “Creating Resolutions that Work”

In gaining an understanding of how we manifest as a personal process that utilizes the willful use of our mind, we can create a new way of looking at an age old tradition of making a resolution as a means of consciously self-creating and imposing a desired direction on our life. Creating comes by choosing what you will create as apposed to just existing in the current pattern that’s running your life. In order to work within the laws of the mind, we need to transform it from the idea of a goal as a statement, to a well-formed outcome as an actual experience. By creating a goal as a holistic idea that embraces the psychology involved in creating, we can learn skills at working more proficiently with our “whole mind” instead of fragmented parts. While the language of the conscious mind is words as abstract and conveying only personal meaning, the language of the subconscious mind is feelings, emotions, images, impressions, and actual experiences. The subconscious mind which builds and maintains the body while also producing automatic behaviors, is programmed through imagining goals as actual experiences. While the conscious mind can be perceived as having the ability to “choose”, the subconscious mind can be thought of as the “will” that serves to act out the choice by producing the behavior of its fulfillment.

The other immediate mistake people make, is they set goals that are negative in nature, and then use the creative power of their mind to create the very thing they don’t want. The mind can’t process a negative command. It doesn’t work by forming mental impressions around what “not” to do, or of what you “don’t” want. It works by interjecting a suggestion as an idea that’s imagined as a reality in the mind, while forming feelings around it or in response to it that creates a pattern as an actual experience that serves as a program for the subconscious mind to produce as an outer experience that matches the internal experience. We first create inwardly what we want as an imagined reality, which becomes the template as a perceptual filter that forms our outer experience as a correspondence to the inner. A goal must be stated in positive terms. Not in terms of what you don’t want, but in terms of what you do want. You form the goal or wish into an actual reality as an outcome or as an actual experience.

For example, if your goal is to lose 20 pounds, then the mind has to picture the 20 pounds you want to lose. Keep in mind, anything we can lose, we can also find again. Because you are not providing it with an image of the desired result, it sees the 20 pounds and the meaning you give it (fat, ugly, unattractive, unhealthy, sloppy, etc.) as the reason you want to lose it, as the actual emotional reason for creating it. The negative command literally says, picture this, feel this way about what you’re picturing, and give me more of it as a means of making me feel the same way. The emotion we attach to the image, is also speaking in the language of the subconscious which it sees as a request for “more” as a pattern for fulfillment. This is why as soon as you profess the need to “diet” as a means of losing weight, you simultaneously form irresistible compulsions around eating more, or eating the things you say you want to “resist”. Behavior is emotionally driven and is how the subconscious mind creates. You don’t focus on the fat that you want to lose, but instead you create an idea of how you’ll look and feel when 20 pounds lighter. You imagine your body in the shape you want it, how you’ll look, how your clothes will fit, what you’ll be telling yourself about how you look and feel, what others will be saying, and so on. You create the desired outcome the goal is intended to produce as an actual reality. You imagine it “within” the experience of it.

When we use language to define a goal, it’s abstract in the sense that it doesn’t always have behavior attached to it. It doesn’t indicate an experience or the process necessary to achieve it. It’s not creative unless it serves to direct our behavior, that is to say, give the subconscious mind a pattern for producing the actual reality. Our mind creates by an understanding of how the conscious mind has the ability to direct and command the subconscious mind by giving it directives in its own language. Words as ideas must be transformed into feelings as imagined experience of the desired outcome and what you will feel as a result in order to give the subconscious mind an “experience” as a pattern for fulfillment. The mind works by creating a perceivable and therefore believable reality as a means of fulfillment by associating an experience to a desired feeling. In order to produce change, language must be converted into experience. We have to look at what the language indicates, see it as an analogy or symbolic of a desired feeling, and create the experience of it as an actual reality, then while holding this in mind, embellish it with strong emotions of desire, adoration, admiration, respect, honor, and so on, and allow these emotions as they escalate to form feelings of gratitude and appreciation which sets an expectation for them. What we expect and look for . . . we find and get.

4 Steps to Getting What You Want

Cosmic_creativity
While we entertain the idea of success requiring long and elaborate schemes and strategies to achieve, in reality, it only requires four basic steps. If you do these four steps, you can achieve anything you set out to achieve.

4 steps to success:

1) Know what you want

2) Realize what it takes to do it

3) Be willing to do it

4) Do it

Sounds simple right? What usually happens in a situation is a person really doesn’t even know for sure what they want, and instead hold a vague and obscured idea of what they want, while focusing almost exclusively on what they don’t want or fear is going to happen instead, while conjuring up manipulative schemes on how to change what they don’t want. Then, even when they realize what they want and what they must do to create it, they’re not willing to do it, and so attempt to create it with whatever behavior they’re comfortable with, even while knowing it won’t produce the outcome they’re trying to produce. Instead, they continue doing what they’ve been doing and are comfortable with, while doing it more intensity or in a more pronounced way, while hoping it’ll produce a new result.

What’s the definition of insanity?
Doing the same thing while expecting a different outcome.

So once you realize what you want and what it’ll take to produce it, and are willing to do it, you then have to discipline yourself to actually do it. It’s the actual practice that produces the equivalent physical results. You’ll only get out of it exactly what you put into it. Yet discipline doesn’t have to come by forcing yourself to do something you don’t want to, but rather by learning how to use your mind in new and creative ways that are actually enjoyable and empowering.

Creation and transformation are not something you bring about simply by thinking about it, but rather by actually doing something. You have to first form a clear idea in your imagination of yourself doing it, and then actually go through the motions of doing it. You have to gear all of your behaviors to align with the desired outcome. You have to eliminate any behavior that acts to contradict it. When going into a situation where there are a lot of uncertainties and unknowns, you need to hold the desired outcome in mind and use it like a navigation system to direct and streamline all your behaviors. Pay attention to your own thought processes to insure that you don’t fall back into old tendencies that’ll sabotage your current creation by reenacting old behaviors.

If you’re not sure what you need to do to create the outcome you desire, then find somebody you know that has done what you want to do. Find someone who has created a similar idea to yours, and then study them to find their strategy. What was their mind-set, their attitude, and how did they actually go about it as a process? Once you elicit their strategy, you can use it to form your strategy in a similar manner, while adapting it to your unique differences and circumstances. You can model their behaviors and practice adopting the same mental attitude and outlook.

Once we know what we want to create and have a strategic process for creating it as an ultimate outcome, we need to simultaneously realize that in order to achieve it we need to lead others psychologically to form a state of cooperation. The best way to do this is by communicating with them in a way that forms in their mind the idea that we want them to participate in co-creating. We then communicate it through an emotional expression that makes it compelling and desirable. We engage them emotionally in a way that produces the natural behaviors necessary to act out and thereby create the desired experience as a process with a specific outcome. As we go along and the creative process is in motion, we monitor feedback in a consistent manner, and interject whatever form of communications we need to make the adjustments we need to make to keep the situation moving in the direction we want it to go, producing what we intended to produce as a variation.

So always start any creative process with a clear and specific idea of what you want as an outcome or experience. Train your mind to focus repeatedly on what you want and what needs to be done. Then form your communication out of that outcome as if it’s already true, forming it as a reality for yourself and others. Communicate with positive emotions in a way that forms in your mind and everyone else’s involved, the idea you want them to cooperate in creating and with the emotions you want them to act out of as a means of creating it. Our willingness to do something comes largely by how we form it as an idea in our mind, what emotions we associate to it, and what we tell ourselves about it that forms either an eagerness for it, or an apprehension around it.

Communication begins with how we talk to ourselves as imagined thought-processes that form an inner experience of the desired outer experience. When we realize that we’re apprehensive about doing what we need to do to create what we want to create, we have to look closely at how we’re presenting the idea to ourselves and what we’re telling ourselves about it that makes it apprehensive. Examine it for the emotional quality motivating it and the belief involved in how we’re presenting it to ourselves, then work directly on ourselves to learn how to tell a new story about the behaviors necessary to perform it in an intentional and deliberate manner. We have to present the idea to ourselves in a way that makes it compelling and enjoyable to do. We have to reform it so it creates a feeling of enthusiasm at the thought of it, knowing what we’re going to make happen by way of performing it.

Allow yourself to always notice that the creative force in any idea is the feeling that compels it into existence through us. When we get an idea that’s inspiring and causes us to aspire towards it, then realize that in order to do it we have encounter our fears and step outside our comfort zone in order to “act it out” and thereby producing it, we can have a tendency to create a feeling of pain and suffering “around” doing what we need to do. This internal experience affects every aspect of how we self-express, and comes across in how we communicate it through our actions and the very nature of our communication. This is the most basic form of self-sabotage. We have to realize that the idea as a vision for reality and the process for creating it are unified by the “feeling” we embody and “act out of” as the means of creating it.

How we experience the process will determine how we experience the outcome it produces. If we struggle and suffer to do something, we’ll only act to create more of the reality of suffering and struggling. The feeling “is” the experience of both the process and the outcome, which is only maintained through continuing the process that created it. Whatever feeling we attach to an idea that produces our emotional state in producing that idea as an expression, only acts to give us more of the same feeling once it becomes a reality. The outer reality is the equivalent to the inner reality, united by the feeling that animates the idea as a pattern or design for creating. Whatever emotion we attach to an idea determines how we use that idea to tell a story as an expression of the emotion, which simultaneously produces natural behaviors as a direct reflection or expression of our inner state. This is a cosmic law, and is always true. Something created in misery, only produces more misery. Something created with enthusiasm, amplifies the feeling of enthusiasm in it’s creation.

So when you form a clear idea in your imagination of what you want to create in your life, then you come to the part of “how” to actually do it, what it’ll require on your part to produce, notice your own response, and what it creates as an inner feeling around the behavior or actions necessary to do it. If it’s fearful, apprehensive, or conflicts with your values in some way, work first on transforming your own attitude necessary to perform it in a way that makes it enjoyable, exciting, passionate, or serving a higher purpose. See it for the good it’ll produce, how it’ll benefit others, and what it’ll contribute to the betterment of humanity. Form all the behaviors and actions necessary to produce it out of very positive feelings. Recognize the fear and limited beliefs involved, and find somebody else who’s successfully done what you desire to do, and elicit their style and strategy for doing it. Then practice imitating it by modeling it taking on the same mind-set and cultivating it internally. Cater your approach to the same type of approach, and run the behaviors through your mind as a mental rehearsal. See and feel yourself doing them with a sense of playfulness and enjoyment, or in a way that’s passionate and charismatic. Change the meaning of what you’re doing so that it supports your values instead of undermining or contradicting them. Form your behaviors as a performance in your mind until you get it just like you want it. Then repeat it several times until it starts to come naturally. Then dedicate yourself to practice, modifying whatever you to until you get it just right. Until it starts consistently producing the outcome and type of experience you desire.
