How we set Our Vibratory Frequency – State of Mind, Thought, and Imagination

There are many ideas around how to create and determine our vibratory frequency, which forms the primary basis as a thematic pattern for all of our perceptions and life experiences, but probably the easiest way to do it is by gaining a firm understanding of the principles involved and how to work with them in a self-aware and intentional manner. When we try to work at the level of effect or consequence, rather than from the level of cause, it can produce an experience of constant work that can seem hopeless and at some point we become discouraged and give up trying. Many people find themselves in a position of not being able to concentrate and stay on task long enough to produce real results that are lasting or permanent. They can’t seem to direct and regulate their own thoughts, or feel they can’t meditate and create extended periods of concentration where their mind is calm, focused, and void of random and sporadic thoughts. This is often due to the fact that they’re trying to work at the level of effect rather than the level of cause.

The true reality of this is easy to see if we simply step back, take on a detached and objective perspective and observe how our own mind works to create our experiences through our thoughts. If we observe our own tendencies we’ll notice that what we focus on and think about flows naturally as the expression of our “state of mind” or souls mood. Whatever mood we’re in at any given moment determines what memories we reference to form our automatic thoughts, and what stories about the past we replay in our imagination as a way of perceiving the present, and what type of things we notice and connect with mentally and emotionally all around us. Our mood and state of mind creates the basis out of which our perceptions flow as a natural stream of consciousness. No effort is required to produce, or try and change or control them somehow.

        Vibration is produced by a mental state that contains within it what we think about as a thematic pattern. This larger, predominate pattern as a theme produces smaller patterns of the same theme as its natural offspring. It produces reality as a reflection and perception of itself in the outer world through a process of self-regeneration. Our dominate frequency as our normal or most common mood is the greater idea always playing out in the different areas of our life as the parent pattern that produces fractal patterns as consistent experiences of the same nature and mood. Our frequency, as the energetic state of our mind, exists as an invisible field of organized information that surrounds, inhabits, and gives life to our body and forms our perception of reality out of a “filtering system”. This filtering system as a “thematic story” determines what we notice and abstract from any given situation and use for producing the “theme of our frequency” by how we interpret it, and what we don’t see or recognize, and therefore leave out or omit from our story.

Our mind is always interacting with material reality, which is already structured with archetypal forms, producing a mass reality that’s basically neutral in nature, and through a process of natural selection, reorganizes it into a different pattern as a personalized version that matches the theme of the mind organizing it. All vibration contains a pattern and a self-organizing mechanism. It works by the same principle as DNA, which is genetic or universal information of a species that produces a unique formula by switching some information off while switching other information on, creating a new configuration. This is the same way the mind of the individual re-configures material reality, changing how it appears to match their ideas and beliefs about it. Consciousness enters into matter, which is really a body of light as essence, and forms a relationship with it, transforming how it “appears” to conform to the perceptual model of the individual viewing it.

Resonance, Sympathetic Induction, and Coherence

Every system as a living form vibrates to a unique mode and rate. All species of animals and plants vibrate in harmony with a greater frequency that produces their individual frequency as a member of that species as a form of “fractal pattern” or slightly altered formula of information inherent in their DNA. Whatever frequency we vibrate at energetically determines what frequencies we form resonance with in everything else. Whatever we resonate with we share the same nature with as both a smaller and greater pattern that forms a theme for producing reality that we readily perceive in the outer world and act to influence through our perception of it.

As we resonate with similar frequencies, our energy as a field of consciousness literally “enters into” it, blending and fusing with it, and acts to influence it into a new variation that matches our mental paradigm, changing how it appears to us. As we alter its vibration to match and be in-sync with ours, we shape-shift it into a new form as our perception of it, and begin vibrating in harmony with it. It becomes a natural and coherent part of our experience of reality. Whatever is not of a similar nature to us, but still exists as a part of the collective unconscious of a greater shared reality, we fail to resonate with, and don’t readily perceive or notice. It remains latent and just becomes a part of the background as a setting and stage for other experiences to take place.

All of life on the planet shares the same basic frequency of the Earth itself (7 to 8 Hz), which produces what we experience as Nature and mass reality of the collective unconscious. This produces what we can think of as the greater frequency or parent pattern that births an infinite number of smaller patterns playing out at the individual level. We’re always taking a universal idea and using it to create a personal version as a unique perception based on our paradigm and perceptual filters. In this way, all perception of the outer world is a form of self-perception where we only see in everyone and everything else what exists in us as a fundamental part of our constitution, which is made up of both known and unknown aspects that exist in polarity to each other as complementary opposites.

The Law of the Tetrad

Sacred Geometry is a scientific system that uses geometric shapes that are inherent in the fundamental structure of all organic and non-organic forms that demonstrate laws ad principles as vibratory structures that have natural behaviors and operations inherent in them. This scientific system is not only comprised of geometric shapes, but also forms correspondences as “relationships” with numbers, letters, colors, sounds, qualities and traits, functions, etc., demonstrated by others systems of the Qabalah, Tarot, Hebrew Alphabet, Sanskrit, Yoga, and other major systems of Ancient Wisdom, which all dynamically correspond to each other and act as the keys for interpreting the symbolism of each correlated system.

All laws form an interdependent energetic and ecological system, where one systematically emerges out of the preceding one as a growth process or form of emanation as an internal unfolding. The Tetrad, for example, represented by the number 4 as the diamond (reflection and projection of 3 as a triangle) that also forms a square, is the full expression of 0 -3, while still containing the potential for 5-9 in its latent state. The full expression of 4 as the Tetrad produces the foundation and basis necessary for 5 as the Pentad to spontaneously emerge and unfold as a natural process of “becoming”. So there’s no such thing as 5 existing apart from or independent of 0-4. The universal laws that produce the mind and reality as a construct of the mind, exist as a “unified whole” that produces and is the inherent nature of our biological system and mass consciousness.

The Monad (0+1) is represented as a sphere with a dot in the center (same as the sun), as the mind or toroidal electromagnetic field that bonds with the body (matter) to form a living entity. The Monad (1) regenerates to produce its double, forming the Dyad (2), not as separate from it, but as overlapping, connected at the center, where the peripheral of one is the center or core of the other. They are connected by their shared nature, and the one, creating an illusion of itself as another, sees only itself in everything else. Our perception of the outer world and others is formed out of the same model as a vibratory structure and thematic pattern (frequency) used for perceiving ourselves as both an internal and external reality of the same nature or overall theme.

What appears as our outer reality is formed by our perception of ourselves (same mind and idea) as our polar opposite played out on a greater scale. Together, the overlapping section, which is shaped like a woman’s womb, forms an interference pattern that re-configures the shared pattern by amplifying and increasing the vibration of some of the shared aspects while canceling out and contradicting other aspects, forming a new pattern as a unique variation. The straight line that connects their inner nature forms the base or foundation for the triangle to emerge as the new form produced as the offspring of their union. The triangle as the triad, formed on the upper level of the same plane (peaks in a unified state at the top), represents the inner pattern as an imagined idea that’s reflected downward and outward, forming the basis for outer (material) reality as its equivalent, forming a diamond shape. A reflection is the same image viewed backwards or reversed, that forms the “polar opposite” of the same thing. The outer reality of the material plane is produced by the inner reality of the creative imagination.

       This idea, like all symbolic ideas has multiple interpretations, the most fundamental one being that our inner nature is what connects us to the inner nature of all other beings through resonance, and reforms them to be of the same image and nature as we are by amplifying and bringing out some qualities while suppressing or ignoring other ones. We only interact with what’s of the same nature as we are, and we reform it according to our paradigm and beliefs about it as the means of being able to comprehend it. Whatever internal image or representation we form as an imaginary thought becomes the lens we look through to form a similar perception of the outer world. We’re always only seeing in everything else what’s like us. For this reason the Dyad as the regeneration of the Monad isn’t considered an actual number (combination of 0, 1, and 2), but is called the “parent number”, and the first true number is its offspring as 3, which forms the true basis for all material reality.

In this sense we have the trinity as 3 principles combined to form 1, that then serve to birth and give rise to the 7 primary principles of 3 – 9 that are the natural “offspring” of the trinity. All of what we call reality, which is formed as our perception of it, results from the relationship we form with ourselves (same vibratory frequency and pattern) in everything else. The Monad and Dyad are the Masculine and Feminine aspects of the same thing as a polar, inner and outer reality. The outer reality is formed (in-formed) by whatever internal representation we form in our imagination that produces an electromagnetic field as an etheric blueprint for organizing and configuring the information of the outer world to be of the same type of idea as a universal theme.

Thought and the Holographic Principle

A hologram is produced mechanically by taking a single beam of light, splitting it in two, then using mirrors, shining one through an image, imprinting it with that image, then reflecting the other beam of light from a different angle forming two 45 degrees angles, then intersecting them, shining the reflected light through the imprinted image, forming a 3-D image as a hologram. It’s basically an image formed out of light, or light shaped into an image, that’s then illuminated with another light that’s unformed, creating a projection of the image. All light comes from stars, and is referred to as Astral Light in Esoteric Sciences. This light is both invisible and a form of essence as a clouded, ghost-like substance when concentrated into a form by the mind. All visible form is produced by light reflecting off of dust as concentrated and coalescent light. The mind has the natural ability to create forms out of Astral Light through the faculty of the imagination.

As we think about something we form it in our mind as an object or possible reality as the means of perceiving and experiencing it. As we shape it into a transparent image that resembles a “reflection on glass”, we simultaneously “look through it” as the means of perceiving the outer world by way of it. This is called our “perceptual lens” as the internal reality formed out of our state of mind and the accumulated memories we formed out of that state, that become the basis for the “nature of our experiences” of the outer world. The outer world, which we only know through our experience of it, comes as the image we first form in our mind, usually out of a memory, belief, or words of some kind, that we give life to by concentrating our attention onto it, and using it as the means for producing more of the same type of experiences. All reality in this sense is produced as a memory of some kind that’s constantly being relived in the imagination as the means of producing our experiences.

Astral Light, the Etheric Body, and Electromagnetic Fields

Astral Light (mental essence) that’s concentrated into organized forms in the imagination, then defined in sensory terms producing an emotional response to it, work together to produce a “thought-form” as an etheric body that we magnetize with our personal magnetism (will), causing it to take on and emanate an electromagnetic field. It’s not until an idea is shaped into a pattern as an “empty form” that it then becomes a vehicle for consciousness as a vibratory frequency to inhabit, animate, and express through. Vibration as an electromagnetic field has a self-organizing mechanism in it that organizes matter and information into distinct patterns that are stabilized through tension and stress produced by the electromagnetic field that both expands and contracts at the same time. The only thing that vibrates or has “life” is organized and magnetized information.

The mind, which exists as an invisible field of organized information, has the ability to shape light into forms that produce frequencies as a life-form that not only holds it together as electrified essence or plasma, but also gives it life by animating it. All form as organized information has qualities, behaviors, and certain type of functions naturally inherent in it as its consciousness. Different forms thereby contain or act as the vehicle for different types and levels of consciousness that perceive and function in very different ways while still being a part of the same overall biological system as a larger pattern or cohesive frequency being played out on different scales simultaneously.

       In this way, our thoughts, when concentrated to form a strong emotional reaction to them, literally become “things”. They take on a life of their own and become a natural part of us, and as a result, a natural part of our reality as our outer environment. This is the exact same way memories are formed that we live out of by replaying them over and over in our mind in different ways that continue to create our experiences to all be of the same nature. Though many believe that memories are accurate and objective recollections of past events, the fact is they’re produced entirely by how we interpreted the events of our life out of our emotional reaction to give them meaning, which served to form a kind of illusion in place of the actual events.

A memory becomes a concentrated thought because we continue to think about it long after the event has passed. The memory forms the basis for all our perceptions and the dynamics we readily engage in and act to attract as well as be attracted to. Because all memories are accompanied by an emotional charge, they take on a life of their own and begin shaping all of our thoughts to be of the same nature through the thematic story we begin telling and living out of because of them. An emotional response to our own thoughts is the chemistry of our body being adjusted to match the same “state” as our thoughts. In the same way actual memories are created in an unconscious manner, we can also create “virtual memories” as concentrated thought played out as a reality with a strong emotional content that likewise becomes a means of perceiving and creating more experiences of a like nature because it provides the subconscious with a living (metaphorical) pattern to use as the means for producing the same idea as an outer experience.

        The way to work with reality or what has already manifest as an actual condition, set of circumstances, or situation, isn’t by trying to alter the physical reality itself, but rather through changing the “state of mind” as our vibratory frequency that naturally gives rise to all our thoughts as the internal reality that’s acting to produce and maintain the outer reality in a consistent and cohesive fashion. We change the outer reality by changing the “etheric body” that acts as the blueprint or mental construct for shaping reality. All “experience” is produced by imagining ideas as an inner reality with sensory intensity that reforms matter as our perception of it. We alter and shape the appearance life takes on by how we perceive and enter into relationship with it through the story we tell about it.

All vibratory frequency is produced by a mental construct as a thematic pattern for producing the appearance of an outer reality as the means of self-expressing and creating experiences. We alter and shape our outer experiences by altering and shaping them internally first through adjusting our state of mind as our mood. When we act on ourselves to direct and alter our own thoughts by what we focus on and “tune into” by forming them in our mind as imaginary realities, we act to resonate with and enter into a natural stream of consciousness that flows in a synchronized fashion forming our perception of reality. Our perception as our vibratory frequency is what forms and determines how we experience reality and shapes the story we tell through our own thoughts about it that form our memories of our “self” and act to shape the inner constitution of our soul. In this way our soul is always creating the Vibratory frequency that it uses to shape and determine itself through how it expresses to create experiences of itself as a “reality”.

The Relationship between DNA, the Subconscious Mind, and the Subtle Body

The formula for multiple levels of self-creation as a dynamic combination of the spirit, soul, mind, and body, currently being re-discovered by modern science, was laid out as a diagram illustrating the “subtle bodies” in Esoteric Sciences thousands of years ago. This map of the subtle bodies was used as the basis for all forms of healing and self-development, and as the means of achieving self-mastery which was necessary in order to consciously undergo the process of personal transformation from a lower state of consciousness to a higher one. This diagram illustrated the hierarchical relationship of the mind and body as fields nested within fields that brought an idea as an invisible archetypal field of information into physical form through the principles represented by the five elements. It showed a physical body with various layers of an outer aura or electromagnetic field as the etheric plane which formed the blueprint for the physical body, the astral or emotional body, the mental plane of thought, and the causal field of archetypes and Will.

While we have a tendency to separate parts of a whole, then create a whole out of the part while imagining that it functions independently as a separate entity from the whole in which it was abstracted, the fact is every single aspect of a whole operates according to the same principles and can’t be accurately understood as a separate state. All material bodies as we know them are accompanied by an electromagnetic field that acts to organize the individual particles into a whole living system as a “field of information”. Yet this isn’t an entirely accurate model either, because in reality all biological forms come as a process of cellular regeneration , where one cell replicates itself and divides to become two, which then replicates and divides to become four, then eight, then sixteen, and so on, and grows through a process of “halving and doubling”. All cells contain information as DNA for producing every aspect of the whole body, where cells differentiate and specialize by what aspects of the total information are turned on and off, forming a new configuration. Our entire body forms a hologram where the part exists and contains the information of the whole, and the whole exists as or in each part.

What we refer to as the electromagnetic field that accompanies all physical form, which of course is invisible, exists as what we also refer to as the “mind” of the body, and the “phantom effect” produced by DNA itself as a measurable field of organized information as what has traditionally been called the “etheric body”, or subtle body which is holographic in nature as a three-dimensional form that’s the exact duplicate of the material body. This “holographic, phantom-like form” is what we now know provides the blueprint for organizing and spatially locating the specialized cells within the body. This energetic field both organizes the information in the DNA to produce a duplicate as its twin in physical form, and radiates from within the DNA as a means of “informing the space around it”. Just as all atoms are comprised of a group of particles held together forming an intelligent living system by an invisible force, the whole body is fabricated through a process of regeneration, held together, vitalized, and operated by an invisible force called the “subtle body” which is itself produced and operated by the mind.

       Science has now discovered and proven that matter is composed of light as “packets of information” that exist simultaneously as both a particle (local) and a wave (non-local). These packets of information as subtle energy are organized into a coherent field of information as the subtle body, which provides the etheric blueprint (hologram) for creating the body as a projection of the mind and soul. What appears as trillions of cells that make up our whole body are actually the “same cell” duplicated, differentiated, and multiplied to form a “greater whole” as specialized functions of the same thing.  DNA is composed of both matter and etheric substance that’s organized by an electromagnetic field that produces a holographic form as the “potential” contained within the information.  The molecular structure of our body operates in a unified manner where the DNA within the nucleus or brain of the cell receives, processes and interprets, and transmits information instantaneously “as” a whole – as if it’s one field or body – and interacts with and responds to the outer reality as a relationship with itself on a greater scale. Information doesn’t follow a physical pathway of communication from cell to cell, nor is it transmitted through the nervous system, but received by the DNA of each cell instantaneously at the exact same time.

The body (any living organism) is formed through the holographic principle where every cell of the body results from the regeneration of a single cell through the process of mitosis, and is all in fact one and the same thing formed from a single (double helix) strand of DNA as the basic information used to construct the body. They’re all formed by the same group of information as memory, and become unique parts that perform specialized functions based on how the information is reconfigured through a “switching system” that turns information within the cell on and off, forming dynamic sequences. The part becomes the whole, and the whole is contained within the part. If we take any part (cell) out of the whole system we’ve  got all the information it takes to make the entire organism in the single cell.

DNA, when abstracted and separated from the body it originated in, still continues to respond as if it’s still a part of the body. It’s still a part of the “unified field” from whence it came through a state of energetic “entanglement”. The part contains the properties of both the particle and the wave, and exists as both simultaneously and continues to operate according to the duality of light (photons), which is the primary substance of matter. It operates according to the principles of particle/wave duality. Light and matter (which is essentially the same thing) exhibit both properties of a wave and particle as a single entity that exists throughout space and time, and can act on itself to interfere with itself when demonstrating wave-like properties, and influences itself into new and varied configurations by acting to turn different aspects on or off. Each cell of a whole body vibrates to the exact same frequency, and frequencies as electromagnetic fields propagate through space, which acts as a medium for them.

       Light is made up of “packets of information”, much like an atom is formed out of a cluster of particles, as energy quanta called photons. Photons exist as a “wave of potential or possibility”, much like all the information contained in a single strand of DNA, and only appears as a stable material form (particle) when organized or frozen into a specific configuration by the mind that interacts with it, and then returns to a flow of photons as a wave function when not being organized by a mind. While we have been taught to see an atom as an organized system of particles rotating around a nucleus in a fixed manner, we now know that this isn’t true. The atom only appears as a fixed and stable system when it’s being “viewed” and perceived by the mind. When no one is “looking at it”, it returns to a wave of potential that appears as a blur or astral cloud-like substance. This ability of the mind to organize matter operates in the same manner or according to the same principle as the etheric body that provides the energetic blueprint for regenerating and multiplying one cell to create a unified field of information as a whole body comprised of billions of cells that continues to function through time and space as if it’s “one”.

Matter, which can be thought of as “frozen light” or the “crystallization of light”, exists as an electrical organism (mechanism) that’s operated through electrical impulses as a photoelectric effect of one or more photons propagating through space as electromagnetic waves. Wave-particle duality is a property not only of light, but of matter as well, because of course matter is ultimately composed of photons in its primary essence. The entire material world is composed of crystallized light produced by electromagnetic fields as intelligent subtle energy also referred to as the “mind” and the individual consciousness of the mind called the “soul”.

While many people tend to think in terms of separating the spiritual from the material, in reality they’re the same thing at different stages and phases of “becoming” as electrified or charged plasma that organizes a etheric form that acts to systematically produce a material form through a steady process of solidification (coagulation) or generation. The four “states of matter” are described as electrified plasma that forms a gas-like substance, which becomes a liquid, which then becomes a solid object. This can also be illustrated through the element of water, which exists in different states as plasma or air, as humidity, a liquid and a solid material when frozen. All of which are different states of the same thing. These stages of forming the material world correspond to the four elements (fire, air, water, and earth) of esoteric sciences, which are organized, formed, and given life through the fifth element of the Aether or the mind of the soul.

        What science now calls “Entanglement Theory” basically states that whatever is “born together” (as in the cells of the body), or that become energetically entangled and vibrate in harmony as the same frequency and nature (mind and soul of the body), operates as a single unit, and continues to operate as one even when separated by great distances. They exist in a fundamental state of polarity as complementary opposites, which means they spin in opposite directions to each other, and whatever property is being measured (observed and fixated by the mind) in one, the other one instantaneously reflects the same property. As the “state” of one particle or cell changes, the state of all entangled parts change in a unified movement because they exist as being a part of the same field, which exists everywhere throughout the space-time continuum simultaneously. They exist as what appears to be individual particles and as an inherent part of the same field of information. What’s of the “same nature” influences each other, no matter where they’re located in the unified field, through their shared “state of mind” and emotions.

This has huge implications not only in terms of our own minds ability to organize and transform our physical body as a correspondence to it, but also explains the mystery of being able to “produce and effect” or heal somebody at a distance with a small amount of their blood or locket of hair, or anything that contains their DNA. By “acting to transform the chemical make-up of their DNA” in the sample provided, it simultaneously produces the same effect in every cell of the body, no matter how far away. Likewise, by tuning into the person by speaking their name several times while concentrating (words connect us to the reality inherent in the words) on them, we can intuitively connect with them mentally and influence them through our state of mind, altering their state and the thought-processes and emotions produced by that state, altering their DNA as a result. This same effect is produced through direct communication by what we say to someone that causes them to imagine the reality of our words as a possibility for experience, and forming a belief out of them as a result. This also gives us insight as to how we are literally transformed (to some degree) through sexual intercourse where we “acquire” some of the other persons DNA, and they ours, and become somewhat subject to their thoughts, emotional states, and actions as taking on the same “morality” and aligning ourselves with the same type of destiny. We literally become one with whomever we have sexual intercourse with.

The Astral Plane of Emotion

Emotion is the “language” of the material plane that also governs instinct and intuition. It’s the dominant property of the lower regions of the astral plane of formation, and the language of the subconscious mind, which is the same level and aspect of the mind we share with the natural world and the plant and animal kingdoms. It’s the energy that’s transmitted within the material plane as notions, urges, and mental impressions that spontaneously alters our state producing automatic behaviors that are systematically employed without direct awareness. In humans, who are bestowed with higher creative capacities of the mind, emotions go a step further in how they affect us by acting to produce whole imaginary realities as illusions that we use in place of the actual, objective reality, that’s produced by the memories associated with the emotion that provides a template for automatic behaviors. All behavior in the ultimate sense is emotionally driven or a product of will, which can override emotion and direct the subconscious with new behaviors based on reason, realization, and rational calculated thinking.

Emotions, which originate in the electromagnetic plane, come in a variety of ways as either a natural response to our own thoughts, as a transmission and thought-form from another being outwardly expressing emotions, as an instinctual response to a feeling or idea, or as a form of association to a memory that was created while in the same emotional state. As we form an emotional response to something we automatically reference a memory of a similar nature that was created while in that same emotional state that provides us with a form of template for creating an imaginary reality as an internal representation that we use in place of the actual or present reality making it out to be the same as the past experience.

This imaginary reality based on memory of some kind provides the template as a story-line or theme that we use for creating an illusion that provides us with an instant interpretation as the means of creating more of the same type of idea, causing us to act in the same way we did in the past situation of a similar nature. In this way, through natural emotional reactions, we engage in a natural form of instinct as intuition that uses memory in place of the intellect and reasoning to create more of the same type of ideas, experiences, and behaviors over and over based on past experiences. Through our emotional states and the automatic behaviors they produce, we continue to create the present to be like the past through an unconscious state that doesn’t require thought or use of choice and free will.

The Subconscious Mind

The subconscious mind operates without direct awareness to produce realities out of memories, and reactive behaviors that are automatic and emotionally driven. The subconscious is the same aspect of the mind we share with all of nature and is what literally produces the substratum of material reality as the collective unconscious or group mind, and automatic functions of the body and behaviors that are involuntary in nature and don’t require a thought process or decision of any kind. It’s the aspect of the mind that forms our “body consciousness”, which operates and informs the DNA of our body by influencing it through emotional states produced by thoughts as actual or imagined realities. The subconscious is the “active mind” and is continuously active from the moment of conception and birth till our last breath and moment of physical death. While our self-conscious mind is only awake and active part of the time, our subconscious is continuously active and never sleeps, yet it operates for the most part without our direct awareness.

The Relationship between Thought and Emotion

Thought and emotion, which can also be seen as masculine and feminine aspects of the same thing, operate as “one” and one serves to automatically produce and influence the other. When descending as a downward movement from the higher, causal plane, we form a thought process in our mind as an idea that naturally stimulates an emotional state in response to it. The emotion married to the thought acts as the “physical equivalent” to the thought and systematically adjusts the chemistry of the body to match the reality produced by the thought. As we think we’re simultaneously regulating the chemistry of the body to produce the physical reality of our thoughts. The subconscious, which is experiential in nature and works through the imagination, doesn’t know the difference between a memory of an actual event or an imaginary one. This is because they’re both produced by the faculty of the imagination, and memories, once created, are replayed over and over through the imagination as a way of keeping the past alive in the present and using the same type of information, much like a feedback loop, to keep re-informing the body and our outer reality with the same type of information, producing a “consistent and congruent” version of our self and our experience of ourselves in our outer reality.

DNA as the Creative Intelligence of the Body and Outer Reality

The DNA of our body operates according to the same principles of both our self-conscious and subconscious mind, and is regulated primarily through our emotional states and imaginary thoughts. We are literally always creating our own physical constitution and character by how we inform our DNA, and organizing our outer reality through the electromagnetic field emanated by our DNA that interacts energetically with the DNA in every other living entity. The entire material world is formed by the information contained in DNA. As we think and form an emotional response to our own thoughts we literally act to “structure the reality” of our thoughts through the “meaning” they have. Thought and emotion form meaning as the basis for creating our experiences. Out of meaning comes the story we tell ourselves as a form of theme that provides us with a consistent version of reality that provides the basis for how we experience things.

DNA works to construct material form out of memory in much the same way that the subconscious mind, soul, and the archetypal realm of higher consciousness as “universal memory” does, all of which play off of each other and are used as the means for creating personal experiences that are formed out of the meaning and significance of something. We form personal memories out of the experiences we had of the events of our life that had a strong emotional impact. Events with little or no emotional impact are never really remembered in any detail, but merely as vague generalizations or forgotten all together. Events that had strong emotions associated with them, determine how we form the memory as the experience of it, which was shaped by the nature of the emotion we were experiencing at the time. The event itself merely sets the stage for enacting a theme of sorts that shapes how we experience it by the type of story we tell ourselves about it. The emotion the event invoked in us, determines the nature of how we created our experience of it through the “telling”. The same basic event and group of elements can be used to tell a story as a serious drama, adventure, comedy, or tragedy based on the emotion engendered and the type of reality that’s naturally inherent in the emotion. Emotions have very distinct types of experiences and fantasies inherent in them that form how we experience life and create ourselves (program our subconscious and DNA) by way of our experiences.

Our thoughts and emotions, which form the internal representations born in our imagination that we use to give things meaning, also act to inform and program our DNA, which, like the subconscious mind, acts as a receiver for information that it translates to produce instructions for organizing the material world. These emotional thoughts are produced by the union of the self-conscious and subconscious based on current life experiences and memories, and from the higher mind of archetypal memory that forms “original thought” that acts to transform and evolve our current creation by recomposing it through the integration of new and diverse information. The common denominator between reality as a neutral set of events that we use as the means of creating our experiences out of and the subconscious mind and DNA, as memory, (of the Soul, subconscious, DNA, and archetypes) is semantics. How we organize the cells of our body and the appearance of the outer world, which is always a correspondence to the inner world, is based on the meaning we give things as our perception of them that form our “life story”. It’s through meaning that we self-create and create our experience of our outer reality.

       DNA acts as the link and medium between the mind and material reality and is programmed or informed in an evolutionary manner through our very thoughts and emotions and the imaginary realities we create out of them. It’s through the imagination that we program the subconscious and DNA as a set of instructions, which produce the equivalent as an experience of reality. Not necessarily by changing reality itself, but rather by changing how reality appears to us based on how we interpret it to give it meaning. As we think, feel, emote, and act, we’re producing a form of etheric template that provides the blueprint as an electromagnetic field of information for organizing how the material world “appears” to us. We self-create by way of our own thoughts and emotions in the most basic and rudimentary sense of the idea.

Both the subconscious and DNA, which is the conscious intelligence that organizes and structures material form, are “experiential” in nature, and operate out of memory as imagined experiences produced by a combination of thought, feeling sensations that make it real and elicit an emotion, altering the chemistry of the body to match the state of mind. These all work together in a synchronistic and congruent manner to produce an imaginary reality that has meaning as a way of experiencing it through the story we tell ourselves about it that creates a form of self-perpetuating “feedback loop”. Through the nature of our thoughts we’re always in the process of telling ourselves a story about everything that has a consistent meaning that we use as the means of literally creating ourselves and our experience of reality. If we change the nature of our story, we change ourselves and our world accordingly.

As we think, feel, and imagine the reality of our thoughts, we systematically create ourselves (program our subconscious and DNA) and our outer world as congruent correspondences to our inner imagining. We are literally the ones always creating ourselves by way of how we’re using all levels of our mind in unison to create experiences in our imagination that become the instructions as a projection and transmission for creating our reality. As we program our subconscious and DNA, the electromagnetic field of information that they produce acts to inform the subconscious and DNA of everything else in the outer, natural world of which they are an inherent part of, and through electrical impulses as resonance, acts to reconfigure it by turning some information off while turning other information on, composing it into a new variable as a personal creation. Our mind as a mental paradigm, vibratory frequency and dynamic pattern literally acts to influence, recompose and transform of field of potential into one possibility that matches our idea about it. Every person creates a unique version of reality through their perception of it.

The Law of Correspondences

All parallel planes that make up the four dimensional material world and the higher spiritual world of pure energy as unformed consciousness, exist in a natural relationship to each other as complementary opposites that are polar in nature. The activity that takes place on one plane propagates through all related planes as a series of correspondences or chain of association. The same vibration as a form of note or chord that is part of a whole octave resonates with that same chord on all higher and lower octaves. As they resonate, the passive aspect of one acts to draw in and absorb the active aspect of the same idea from a parallel plane, which influences it, altering its vibration and modifying the existing pattern to a new possibility for the same idea as a natural means of transformation that gradually evolves the form to a new kind or level. As we draw in energy as vibratory information from the space around us and synthesize it by becoming one with it in mind, we begin vibrating in harmony with it and it modifies our thought processes through the realization it brings, changing how we see ourselves and our world.

The most natural and immediate way we have of creating ourselves and developing our character that simultaneously modifies and transforms our physical body and outer reality, is by learning how to keep our body in a relaxed state while stilling our mind of random habitual thoughts, and focusing our attention on the idea of what we want to create. It’s only through deep states of concentration on an idea as an imagined experience of reality, that’s defined and developed with detail over an extended period of time that serves to invoke an equivalent emotion, that’s then thought about or “remembered” in a consistent fashion, that we create a “virtual memory” as an intentional form of “self-programming”. By controlling and directing our thoughts and what we imagine as possible scenarios, or what memories we dwell in and think about in a repetitive manner, we can regulate our emotional state and “act on ourselves” to reprogram ourselves with a corresponding reality. All ideas exist in a primary state of infinite potential for that idea as a kind of theme. The theme employed acts to produce the mental correspondence as our identity and character, the bodily correspondence as our physical health and constitution, and the outer correspondence as our perception of reality. All of which act together to form the story we tell by living it as the means for developing and evolving our soul, mind, physical constitution, and perception of reality through the same memory as a fundamental form of programming.

The Masculine and Feminine Principle of the Soul, Mind, and Body

 

All spiritual ideas that represent laws and principles are conveyed in symbolic form as metaphors, analogies, and allegories that demonstrate the principles as creating in the material realm. The material world itself exists as symbolic form of the spiritual. The spiritual plane exists in a state of wholeness as pure potential that’s unformed, yet forms the basis for all material manifestations as the result of choice, will, and imagination. All matter exists as both a particle and a wave simultaneously. The wave is a “field of potential” as archetypes that exist as a theme that contains all the information necessary to produce realities of an infinite variety based on how it enters into relationship with the infinite mind of the individual vibrating at the same frequency, which resonates with a singular possibility as an idea that it chooses by absorbing, allowing it to impregnate the imagination with a seed that it then grows into a full-fledged reality by continuing to think about it. As we think about a newly conceived idea, we develop and construct it through a process of adaptation to produce a unique variation of the same general idea.

When an idea as an archetype is drawn into the womb of the imagination, it’s united in relationship with the sensory-emotional state of the body (individual mind), where it undergoes a process of adaptation that grows certain aspects to various degrees, while leaving other aspects dormant, producing a modified version of the general idea (archetype) that forms a template as a possibility for manifesting a reality within the context of their everyday life. All of what we call “reality” exists as a personal creation of a universal theme formed by the relationship that naturally takes place between the masculine and feminine, which together birth an offspring that’s a combination of both to form a new whole.

The Monad, Dyad, and Triad

The Monad (the number 1, represented by a sphere with a center) symbolizes the soul or mind in its unified state as containing both the feminine and masculine attributes as polar forces within its own nature. The mind on the material plane consists of both the subconscious (feminine) and conscious (masculine) as complementary aspects of the same mind that play different roles in the same overall operation. The Monad, when descending into the dense plane of matter, regenerates itself by dividing into dual aspects, forming the Dyad as both the inner and the outer, the self and another, and the Me and I. This principles is expressed in the Biblical allegory as the creation of man, first as Adam (hermaphrodite), who was divided by the feminine aspect of itself being “cut out of its side”, producing Eve as its dual aspect, who together form a unified whole as a single entity. This not only allows for companionship in terms of not being alone, but also provides the basis for entering into relationship with itself in (the illusion of) another, and in doing so being able to “see” aspects of itself normally hidden as unconscious aspects through the perception of the other in its own image. As long as they were side-by-side, they couldn’t see each other (themselves in the other), so they were turned to face each other. By facing each other they act as a mirror which reflects back to them their shared nature.

All single and individual entities still maintain dual aspects that make up its basic nature as both feminine and masculine aspects, not only represented by the dual nature of the mind as the subconscious and conscious minds, but also as the two hemispheres of the brain (right and left), and the symmetrical structure and function of the heart, which acts as a dual pump beating together in unison forming a single cardiac cycle. Whatever gender as the sex of an entity determines which aspects are more than likely dominate and which ones are passive in terms of degrees of activity and which aspects were stimulated and appealed to through our formative conditioning, and strengthened through utilizing most often in the dynamic being played out in our everyday life that we participate in by playing a role.

These dual aspects of masculine and feminine energy always exist in polarity of each other as complementary opposites that serve to stimulate each other into an active and dominate state as forming different roles in the same dynamic, operation, and cycle. While we’re all born with a preformed nature as what’s been developed in us (our soul) up to that point, forming our subconscious memory that automatically gives us a natural predisposition, temperament, and tendencies, we are consistently undergoing a form of evolutionary growth by what complementary energies are being expressed around us that we naturally enter into and coexist in relationship with that serve to stimulate and bring out in us the opposite aspect of the same quality that forms the basis for the nature of the interaction as a dynamic (thematic pattern), that develops that aspect through that specific dynamic, conditioning us to it, and reforming us accordingly by strengthening some aspects while others remain latent and unused in their potential state.

Likewise, every “quality” as a way of being that’s ideally played out through different types of dynamics (stories) exists in a polar relationship as a “range” that moves from a negative expression (destructive) to a positive (constructive) one. The opposite qualities as aspects that form our character can only be known, accessed and brought out for possible development through expression, by contrasting and seemingly opposing each other through a common dynamic or state of which they both play a part as a role that leads to a different experience as an outcome. Fear, for example, has as a potential relationship and manifestation of both cowardice and courage. Whichever one is stimulated or actively chosen and used in relation with the fear, determines not only the outcome or result that’s produced by the fear, but also who we “become” by way of either a passive or active use of choice and free will.

The feeling itself as an emotional sensation contains within it not only the polar aspects as potential for expression and creating, but a whole range of possibilities as degrees that separate and differentiate them. How we respond to it in terms of how we perceive it and behave as a result, is a form of our creative ability through choice and will, and is either made in a passive and unconscious manner, where we don’t perceive a choice and just respond in an automatic, instinctual manner as our tendencies and inner nature, or it’s made in an active and intentional manner through self-awareness that chooses to counteract unconscious tendencies and break automatic patterns, and so courage is chosen in light of fear. We’re always in the process of creating our experiences of reality and ourselves by way of those experiences through our ability to consciously choose and willfully act out our choice, whether it’s done in a passive or active manner. In other words “no choice” is a choice.

The Dual Nature of the Self – the “Me” and the “I”

What we call the “Self”, like the soul, mind, and reality, is three-fold in nature, and dual in nature on the lower, material plane. These seemingly two selves work in perfect unison and conjunction as separate (opposite and complementary) forms of consciousness that perform different parts of the same operation. We’re all born into this world initially with only our subconscious (feminine) mind active and fully functioning and is what forms the “personality” of the body, which consists primarily of hereditary gene’s and memories that are further established and developed by our family unit, which share the same genes and are conditioned to the same dynamics as tendencies (memories) inherent in the genes as a form of instinct, that forms what we sense, perceive, and come to call “Me”. The Me of the personality is the identical twin that births and gives rise to the mental “I” (identity). Though these twin aspects appear to be different in terms of their consciousness and characteristics, they’re both phenomena arising from the same will.

The Me is often mistaken for the I because it’s the personality of the body as our most natural and primary sense of ourselves, which forms all of our natural perceptions, thematic interpretations, and behaviors out of the memory of our ancestors and formative conditioning. The personality is composed of all the things of the body – feelings (sensations), emotions, tastes, likes and dislikes, tendencies, connections, habits, characteristics, etc., all of which make up the constitution of the personality, also commonly referred to as the “lower self” that’s a member of the animal kingdom. All of nature in terms of plants and animals only possess the subconscious aspect of the mind, which lacks the ability to think in a separate and individual manner, outside of the species it’s a part of, and is driven purely by instinctual means as the automatic behaviors born out of tribal knowledge that all who are a part of that same species performs through unconscious impulses, while still having a personality of its own as unique characteristics that make it vary only in how it goes about performing the same behaviors.

The personality of the body as our lower self that operates out of instincts (group memory) of the species as human beings, forms the “herd mentality” by rendering their will passive, and allowing it to be controlled and utilized by another. The consciousness of the body is subject to the Universal Laws that govern the subconscious nature of Rhythm and Polarity, that keep it moving between emotional extremes as the memory associated or inherent in the emotion, which is designed to produce automatic, impulsive behaviors. Because humans have the higher capacities of the mind to self-create within the material realm of the subconscious, all thoughts and perceptions that ultimately result in actions and deeds of some sort are emotionally driven. The emotions of the material, instinctual plane of species oriented memory, are what provide the template as a theme that shapes thought into thematic perceptions that form its behavior and its “sense of self” simultaneously by way of the experience created through its actions. Those who are “emotional in nature” and are run and ruled by emotional states that they feel helpless to control or lack an actual awareness of what’s actually happening and that they have the ability to control their emotions, tend to “live out of this state” and form their identity with it, bonding their soul (through identifying with it) to what is predominately a lower state of consciousness that makes them equivalent to the animal kingdom where they are being shaped and developed by blind forces that they allow to inhabit them.

In this state of total identification with the body (animal nature), our sense of self is dependent on the body, and our body is something we require in order to know (experience) ourselves, and we begin associating our mind as belonging to and being produced by the body (formation of the false-ego). We begin imagining that the Self, like the mind that acts as a vehicle for it, is a product of the body, and therefore can’t or doesn’t exist without it, and in making this fundamental misconception as a mistaken identity, we render the soul mortal and capable of dying with the body. This is the birth of the false-ego where our perception of our “self” is created through identification with our body and the material realm, which dies with the body and is annihilated or made extinct. The soul moves between planes based on what it identifies with and creates itself out of as an “idea”, based on what qualities and abilities it employs through its identification.

As we rise in the scale of consciousness and are able to disentangle our identity from the personality (Me) of the body, we begin realizing that the mind not only doesn’t belong to the body, but that the body belongs to the mind or the mental part of us that’s independent of the body and is what acts to “operate the body”. But even in this awareness there’s still a tendency to identify with the mental states, feelings, emotions, and so on that we experience as living within us. Because these are experienced within us, as us, it’s easy to mistake them as being an essential part of our “Self”. Yet by creating a sense of being separate from our body, we can also realize that we have the ability to change and direct these inner states in any way that we desire through active use of our will and imagination.

By separating our “sense of self” from these inner feelings, we find ourselves in possession of our true Self, which is the “I” and the “Me” as dual aspects that together produce the “Self” as an active expression that produces the “experience of the self” through the mechanism of the body. The body can be recognized as the mental instrument or channel through which thoughts, ideas, emotions, feelings, and other mental states may be produced. The body as the feminine aspect may be perceived as the “mental womb” (Vesica Pisces) capable of generating mental offspring that become the basis for material reality. While many like to separate the spiritual from the material, the higher soul from the lower soul, the spirit from the soul and body, and so on, the fact is they’re all a part of the same thing, and one systematically emerges out of the other as a process of descending from higher planes to lower planes, and ascending from lower planes to higher planes. Spirit is comprised of both masculine and feminine aspects and is what acts to birth, operate, and sustain the entire causal, mental, astral, and physical world.

The subconscious mind is passive and receptive in nature and has the latent powers of creation and generation of mental imagery of all sorts and kinds through the faculty of the imagination. The creative powers of the Feminine aspect of the mind are enormous on the material plane, yet it must receive energy and direction as a seeded idea from either of its “I” (active male) companions. The subconscious exists as the connective medium between active aspects of both the higher, spiritual plane, and the same plane of its equivalent Masculine aspect, both of which are capable of impregnating it with an idea as a seed for manifesting in its physical form. Awareness and realization of this principle brings with it enormous capacity for mental and creative ability to self-create by way of self-induced experiences.

Conscious Self

The conscious aspect of the mind is the aspect that can become aware that it (masculine) has the mental capacity to willfully direct the subconscious (Feminine) by intentionally subduing its emotional activity while introducing a thought as an idea into the imagination that it will develop and grow into an outer experience, that will allow the “I”, after actively creating it by way of the subconscious, to stand apart from its own creation and witness it as its offspring. This is the part of the self that has the ability to not only willfully and actively manifest an idea through the subconscious, but also has the ability to “project an energy” (life force) from the conscious to the subconscious as the process of willing through which the mental creation begins and proceeds into material manifestation. The Self, in the active conscious mode, can then act to witness its own creation in the imagination as a reality that’s being “viewed” both from within as a direct experience of it, and apart from it watching it play out like a movie. This is the dual aspect of the mind inherent in every person.

Subconscious (Feminine) and Conscious (Masculine) Process of Creation

The subconscious mind is the dominate aspect of the mind in the material world as the passionate forces that energize, organize, structure, and produce material form while imbuing it with characteristics that govern its behavior and how it functions or operates as an animation. This is because in its primary state it has both the passive and active components, and is what forms both the mental and emotional plane of instinct, thought, and automatic behaviors that are produced through feeling-emotional impulses, and has no will of its own (doesn’t perceive itself as separate from its maker), even though it acts to birth the self-conscious aspect of itself (on the same plane and level) as its personal will. It’s constantly being impregnated with seeded ideas as the memory of the species and genetic code that are inherent in the morphogenic (astral) field of which it’s a part. The subconscious acts to “draw in” and be the receptor for the seeded ideas and complementary energies of the Higher Will which it then systematically births as joint offspring.

The subconscious-feminine then gives birth to the conscious-masculine aspect of the lower plane that acts to witness the creation of the Higher Will as its outer reality, which is produced as an extension of the self by way of the subconscious. It witnesses the outer world produced by the inner world of the body as being separate or being a part from it, and therefore doesn’t realize that it’s the result of its own creation, and imagines itself as being produced by the body and shaped by the events of its outer world, and therefore becomes subject to it. Once the conscious mind realizes the outer world is produced by the subconscious mind as the passive receptor of an idea that can be both unconsciously absorbed from the active will of others and the collective unconscious, or intentionally introduced through its own will, it can take an active role in exercising the ability to introduce desired ideas that are grown in the imagination while introducing the complementary emotion that sets the creative process in motion and directs its development with a sense of precision.

Creation

The entire lower (material) creation is a product of the Higher Will or the personal will, both of which are the same thing formed on different levels, perspectives, and degrees of consciousness. The Higher Will simply operates in a neutral fashion to play out soul memory as karmic patterns over and over, which can only be resolved, changed, and broken by active use of the personal will. While creatively operating out of a primarily unconscious state, we perceive life as happening to us beyond our control and having nothing to do with us in terms of being self-created through past deeds as memory continuing to be played out in a habitual and automatic fashion.

The Feminine Principle is always the aspect receiving mental impressions, while the Masculine Principle is always the one giving the mental impressions. The Feminine aspect performs considerably greater work as what generates thoughts, ideas, and concepts, as possible realities in the imagination. It takes in and acts as the vessel for the “seed” as information in its potential state that it uses to build and construct a material body as its outer expression. The Masculine Principle contents itself only with the work of the “will” which introduces the seed into the imagination (womb) in an intentional and deliberate way. When the subconscious is not being seeded and directed by the inner, personal will, it still acts as the passive receptor for receiving mental impressions as suggestions from the active wills around it, from outside sources and the will of others being projected upon and into it. Through absorption of mental impressions of others, it creates the reality of their will instead of producing original and unique mental creations.

By concentrating on an idea and giving continued attention to its inner development we intellectually employ both aspects of the mind and consistently produce original creations as our offspring. We take an active and willful role in our own creation by employing the creative capacity of our mind to move away from unconscious and adulterous modes of creation and into conscious, fully aware, and deliberate modes of creation. When we realize that what we perceive as our outer world is the projection of karmic memory being produced by the passive absorption of our Higher Will, showing us what we normally remain unaware of, and experience as happening to us instead of being our own creation, we can begin actively working with it by introducing thoughts and ideas into the subconscious mind that counteract it, correct it, and rewire our system as a new configuration (relationship), that serves to transform and evolve the memory to become the basis for producing a new experience of reality. By giving our subconscious mental impressions of a desirable nature, then nourishing and supporting those with consistent attention and thought, we transform our inner being by re-informing it with new patterns (ideas) that are projected outward and act to systematically modify our perception of reality, and how we experience ourselves through and by way of that reality, that alters and shapes our “sense of self” as an intentional act.

The willful mind stimulates the creative portion of the mind, which generates a reality out of stimulation. Whatever is stimulated within us, is activated and brought out as the basis for creating an experience that develops us by strengthening those aspects. Most people are content to live their entire life out of the thoughts and ideas instilled in them by others through their formative conditioning by other minds and wills. Most lend their will to create themselves as the idea or progeny of others, without ever realizing what they’re doing and why, or that they have the ability to begin shaping themselves by way of their own ability to willfully rewrite the memories of the subconscious and begin telling a new story that transforms and evolves the soul by way of that story.

When we take an attitude of being mentally lazy and assume a passive role, subject to the conditions and circumstances of our life, we are ruled almost entirely by the mind and will of others, allowing them to do our thinking and creating for us. To appreciate the magnitude of this idea all you have to do is realize how few original thoughts or ideas come from the average person. Most think that by adopting and claiming as their own whatever they’ve been taught, were told, read, watched, and accepted as true, and therefore acted to make real as their reality through the acceptance and belief in it.

Summary

The feminine is the primary principle of the mind operating within the material realm as its creator. The entire material world of what we call reality, including the body we inhabit, is produced and maintained by the creative power of the Feminine Principle, which has no will of its own, and is always acting as the passive receptor of the will as mental impressions and seeded ideas given as suggestion, that it turns into a reality in the imagination. The reality created in the imagination of the subconscious as its manifestation of will (Masculine Principle), is then “witnessed” by the conscious mind, both as it’s inner aspect and its outer reality which is produced as a projection of the inner, as being apart from it. Through our conscious perception of the outer world we experience our own inner, self-made creation. The outer world appears as an analogous correspondence to the inner imagining or an idea. The imagined reality as a living idea turns it into a vibratory frequency that connects us with that same idea in everything else, while simultaneously reordering the appearance of the outer world through resonance (making different components active and passive), forming our perception of it out of which we experience ourselves in relationship with it.

The subconscious is programmed to produce realities by either aspect of the active (masculine) mind of both the Higher Will, which feeds it memory acquired from past deeds, or the personal will which has the ability to give it mental impressions of realities that contradict, and therefore transform the dynamic patterns of karmic memory, producing new realities and experiences in its place that become memories as the programming of the body and personality. For this reason the soul is referred to as feminine, and the will as the active force of both the Higher Mind and complementary aspect on the material plane as the masculine. These terms have nothing to do with sexual gender of being a man or woman (because we all have both), and are instead referring to the polar and complementary aspects as the dual nature and mind that’s creatively active in every individual and manifestation of reality.

The soul, like the mind, has three aspects, all of which contain both feminine and masculine components that exist in polarity not only within the same plane, but within complementary and parallel planes of higher and lower, or smaller planes nested within greater planes, all of which interact by stimulating each other through feminine and masculine aspects which form a harmonious union as a unified creation of self and the reality in which the Self lives. The Higher Mind works through the feminine subconscious mind of the lower plane, which is passive and able to receive ideas for manifesting as reality. The masculine, conscious mind of the body, being active also, can’t receive ideas or guidance directly from the Higher Self, and relies instead on the subconscious to reflect the ideas in the imagination as mental impressions it’s been impregnated with, or through what’s being realized through the outer reality which is also being produced as a projection and reflection of the subconscious imagination. This is why in Esoteric literature the man is always depicted as looking at his female companion (wife) with his arms outreached, who’s looking upward at the angel that oversees both of them as their guiding light.

Creativity – The Relationship between Choice, Will, and Creating Reality

It doesn’t take long to realize that in life all things exist in relationship to each other. There’s really no such thing as an independent or solitary act. Everything comes as a result of something else, or as a synchronized series of events that play out over a period of time. While we can say that “no choice” is a choice, or that unconscious decisions that are seemingly made without awareness or in a deliberate manner, that are based primarily on feelings, emotions, or impulses of some sort, are still using your will because you’re willingly acting them out, this is passive use of the will that likewise creates in our life in an unconscious manner. Choice and will, like all faculties of the mind and soul, exist in both active and passive form based on awareness and deliberate action, or without direct awareness and in an automatic fashion.

Anytime we’re aware of choice, and we negotiate it in an intentional manner, it usually comes as a decision between a conditioned response and a conflict of some sort as a conscience or inner awareness that makes us hesitate and resist it, and so we look for other options. Whenever we make an “actual” and true decision in a fully aware and intentional manner, we naturally leave all other options we were previously debating behind and move forward to create the choice we’ve made as our reality. We remove our attention from all other ideas, become single-minded, focusing exclusively on the reality of our choice, and we direct all of our attention and actions into creating it. Once our mind is made up and all conflict dissolves, our only movement becomes directed by the imagined reality of our decision, and we act systematically to create it. This is why “choice and free will” are always presented together, because they’re different aspects of the same creative process.

If we experience the inability to do something that we believe we’ve chosen to do, it’s due to the fact that we haven’t truly made the decision for it, but are still bartering, debating, and negotiating it. It can be showing us that we still harbor inner conflict around it, still have attachments of some kind to what we’re deciding against, or we have conflicting beliefs and values of some sort that are holding us to indecision. Often our emotions and feelings are contradicting it or wanting something different than our rational, reasoning mind, and so our mind is divided. Anytime there’s a division between the subconscious and conscious mind, with one aspect of the mind acting to contradict or counteract the other one, we sit in limbo not knowing what to do, always going back and forth, sabotaging our own efforts, never actually able to settle on one or the other, until someone or something makes the decision for us and we no longer have a choice in the matter.

While there’s a tendency for society to tell you to pick “one over the other”, to follow your heart and not your mind (as if they’re different things), the fact is, it’s always about a balance between the two. An alignment that forms a single mind as a single goal, free of all conflict, that works dynamically in-sync with each other to create the reality of that choice. Anytime we pose one aspect against another, we’re doomed to failure or a seeming success that merely forms the foundation for inner turmoil and conflict to play out as a constant realization of betraying ourselves in some way. Thought and emotion, intellect and feeling, heart and head, are always unified, one producing and sustaining the other. There’s no such thing as a division in the true sense of the word. The masculine and feminine aspects are only capable of creating when forming union that produces an offspring that’s a combination of the two. They always act in unison as “one idea” that produces the material reality as a correspondence of that idea.

The Power of Emotions

Making a “true decision” where all aspects are aligned and agree, can often be quite difficult, and may actually come over a period of time while different aspects that negate the desired outcome in some way are played out and explored in greater depth, so that the necessary realizations can be obtained, which serves to confirm what you need to decide. Our subconscious, which is the seat of all of our conditioning as our mental paradigm, habitual tendencies, regular emotional states, and dynamics that are magnetic and compulsive in nature, seeks only to maintain the status quo as a form of self-preservation by continuing to play out the thematic dynamics that we’ve built our identity around, and need to keep playing out somehow in order to maintain our “sense of self”.

We keep casting ourselves in the roles we know how to play, and telling the story we know how to tell and do so in a natural, automatic, and compulsive fashion. We’re magnetically drawn to it even when intellectually and through reasoning we know we don’t want to be or shouldn’t. It works through our emotions, which are often gripping and intense, holding us captive to passions and intense emotional experiences that saturate our body with the chemistry and hormones of the emotions, satisfying a form of addiction. Emotions, being the motivating force of the subconscious mind and body, which is habitual and automatic in nature, are habit forming and we literally become addicted to them, even when we hate ourselves for doing it. Emotions, which are the driving force of instinct, are designed to produce automatic behavior that don’t require will, thought and decision, or self-awareness of any kind. We become addicted to pain just as easily as we do pleasure, because they’re both a drug produced internally that we become dependent on and use not only to create and maintain our state of mind, but also to create our reality out of, which is how we act in an indirect manner on ourselves to create ourselves.

Anytime emotions and passions go against reasoning and rational thought, they nearly always win, because they’re experience as a strong internal sensation that’s very compelling with a form of urgency, whereas clear thought is more neutral and something we seem to experience in more of a dissociated perspective of witnessing as being outside of or above the situation looking at it from the perspective of a “whole” rather than in it as a “part of it”. Once emotions take hold and grip us in some way, usually through memory of some kind that’s used to create in the present, it tends to cloud and control our thinking through a form of seductive persuasion, making it difficult to resist.

When this happens, decisions usually come as a gradual process, where once the desire to change becomes persistent, and we continue playing out the emotional dramas preventing us from implementing them, we begin having realizations about them that start dissolving the illusion we’ve built around them, loosening their grip, and they begin disintegrating and falling away. Once we have a notion as the desire to change in some manner, breaking an established pattern, it tends to steadily grow until it reaches fruition as an actual decision that we begin acting on to make it an actual reality, leaving the old behind and starting something new.

The Power of Belief

In a like manner, we can appear to have made a decision, and started it in motion, while maintaining a belief of some kind that prevents it, causes a feeling of conflict somehow, or results in what seems like the inability to take action, or not knowing what to do. Beliefs can be quite difficult to identify because they form the very basis of our experience of reality, and we often mistake them as being “fact or true”. Belief and the reality formed from it is the most basic and prevalent demonstration of the “power of the mind to create reality”. We create the experience of our beliefs perfectly without realizing that it’s our own creation, and is not real or true at all in the objective sense. Because many of them come from actual experience in terms of how we “interpreted” the events of our life by telling ourselves a story about them, we don’t realize that we actually made them up using our imagination (will). Likewise, we’re also taught certain ideas that we accepted as being factual or true, and use as the foundation for building entire networks that are all based on the same belief system, and accepting the ideas of others that were given to us and willingly adopted by us as our own thoughts. Usually the only way to upsurge a belief and bring it back into a fluid and negotiable state, is by introducing contradictory evidence that proves it wrong, one-sided, or reveals it as a skewed version. While many choose instead to argue against, deny, or ignore altogether anything that serves to shine light on the validity of long held beliefs, this too is a decision that we willingly act out and employ as the means of creating the reality it implies.

When we always act to defend our beliefs instead of being willing to consider other possibilities, we condemn ourselves to the confinement of the reality of those beliefs. When we feel we’ve made a clear and conscious decision to change our life in some way, no longer running on memory and autopilot, and are confronted with what seems like the inability to act in order to create it, or the “path to take” in moving in the new direction, it’s usually due to a conflicting and limiting belief of some sort. We know when both aspects of our mind are in alignment with each other when we make a decision that lacks any kind of inner conflict, and we feel a sense of passion and urgency in acting to create it. We don’t have to figure anything out, we’re not stumped or confused, lacking motivation of the drive to do it, but instead, from that point on direct all of our attention and energy into actively moving forward on it and systematically producing it.

Knowing What to Do

The idea of being aware of the need or ability to make a decision puts us in the position of actually creating in a conscious and intentional manner. We create our decisions by focusing and concentrating our full attention on them, and consistently acting on them in whatever way is immediately apparent. We move forward with the attitude of being and doing. It’s very natural for us to not necessarily “know what to do” or how to be when we’re stepping into something new, because we don’t have memory or previous experience to go on. All new actions and creations come to us, not as a whole idea or plan laid out in detail for us to follow, but as a desire for what we’ve chosen, and a notion about how to start. If we simply act on what we know to do while remaining focused on our intention and desired outcome, it starts a process in motion that comes as an intuitive and synchronistic unfolding where one idea leads to another, and investigating or penetrating one aspect reveals the next aspect as the “next step”. We’re often required to have faith in the fact that if we simply act on what we do know and therefore step into it and start the process in motion, that the next step will become apparent.

Stepping into the Unknown

All well laid out “action plans”, so to speak, come as the result of rehashing and reformulating past memories to form what appears to be a new idea, yet in reality, is merely a new version of an old idea. When we form a truly new idea as a reality for creating, it usually comes through a part of us that’s always been there, urging us on to “become” who we truly are as our dream for our life that we negotiated away in an attempt to conform to the ideas of society imposed on us and the need to fit in, and we step into the flow of life by embracing an inspiration that comes to us seemingly from out of nowhere (though its often been there forever), that takes hold within us, becoming relentless and persistent. Once we receive it as an intimate connection that appeals to our true self, urging us on and encouraging us, it can almost become an obsession. An idea for our life that we can’t seem to let go of because it speaks to us with a vivid honesty as a form of promise that restores hope and the fulfillment of our true purpose and mission in life.

All truly inspired ideas come to us by resonating with our deepest parts, the ones that we remain unfamiliar with while having a deep longing for, crying out to be free, shrouded and suffocated by illusions that we blindly accept as our fate, surrendering our true destiny and condemning our soul to a wasted and meaningless life. These form the big, life-altering decisions. The ones that are truly difficult to make, because in doing so, our identity and who we’ve been up to that point becomes compromised, and is no longer validated and sustained. To follow it, make the decision to surrender to our higher calling, means our entire previous life situation and roles will change, sometimes drastically, and we’ll be left scrambling, faced with the unknown, new conditions and circumstances, a new way of being that requires trust and a belief in ourselves and our inherent ability to know what to do when faced with brand new options that only guarantee uncertainty.

When we make a decision to be and do something different in our life, especially when we’re older and have an established lifestyle and habitual patterns that we’ve built our identity around, where we have no past memory to go off of, we realize that the path unfolds through the series of decisions we’re making moment by moment as we go. In this total newness comes true creativity. Every decision, no matter how minute, becomes about “who am I?” What do I want to create? Who am I going to be, here, now, in this moment? What am I going to do, how am I going to act, and what consequences will result? We start getting a true feeling for how we actually create our lives through our everyday choices and actions, often for the first time as an adult.

Once we’re cast into a life that we just sort of ended up in through an unconscious and natural process of growing up, where decisions seem to be made for us by our situation and responsibilities, and we fall into the habit of making decisions in an unconscious manner where they’re made for us or we simply accept them, and even when we maintain an awareness of what we want to do instead, we choose to give it up in favor of what we feel we need and should do. After a while we find ourselves living life in an automatic and habitual fashion where the only decisions we have to make is what to eat for dinner, or what to watch on TV, and even those decisions can be made for us by others. We can slowly fall into the reality of never having to make decisions and actually creating something new, and instead just act to maintain the habitual pattern already established and go with the flow by coasting through our life.

To make true decisions that bring about change and create in a conscious way requires a form of courage and willingness to create something new and unfamiliar. It can mean giving up security and established success, or a glorified self-image, and wiping the slate clean, starting all over with a brand new idea for yourself and your life. When we make one decision and actually act to create the reality of that decision, it naturally leads to the need to consistently make more decisions, because you’re the creator and they’re not being made for you by someone else. When this happens a new sense of freedom comes about, and you start getting a real sense of who you actually are. Anytime and unconscious process becomes conscious, we gain tremendous insights into unfamiliar aspects of ourselves that remained hidden, subdued, or just barely out of sight. Naturally with this awareness and freedom comes the true responsibility for what we create and who we become through our own volition. We can no longer dodge responsibility or blame our shortcomings on others. This realization alone can be as terrifying as it is empowering.

        Many people go through their entire life with decisions that are being made for them by others, or simply complying with the general consensus and trained mindset of society. Many “fall into a situation” in what seems like a haphazard method of chance, because they were creating from an unaware state with no realization of the consequences or end results of the actions. Many start off not knowing for sure what they want to do, then as they go along just end up in situations that seem to dictate the course of their life for them, and they feel trapped, or something about it becomes more important than their freedom to decide, and so they choose it instead, going with it till the situation ends or drastically changes somehow, then, they’re right back where they started. Drifting aimlessly into an abyss with no sense of purpose or vision for their life, scared and filled with an unbearable sense of dread and insecurity. Having lived so long without the ability to create through active use of choice and will, they feel lost and confused, and as if they have no ability to move their life in a new direction. Usually, without even knowing what direction they want their life to move in. When this happens, they usually simply find a new situation that they can wrap themselves around, and continue on their way, choosing to remain unconscious in the most basic sense of the word.

Creativity

All true creativity comes through a balanced and aligned mind, where feelings, emotions, and desire are the motivating force and formative factor of thought as an imagined idea. To decide on something is to choose an idea that you then act to willfully create. You direct all of your attention (undivided mind) and activities into the fulfillment of your decision. Choice gives us a vision as a firm idea that we’re then required to create. In this same way, an artist decides what feeling they want to capture and express by becoming one with it. They envision that idea as a sensory reality in a way that invokes a love for it, and then they go about doing what’s necessary to create it. They engage in whatever course of action is necessary to produce it. Naturally this requires great skill that only comes through constant practice and a sense of diligence.

So if you’re struggling with creating what you want, or making the necessary decisions in your life to better it somehow, and you’re always going back and forth, or never actually being able to bring yourself to do what seems like a “big move”, just allow yourself to reflect on and become aware of all that comes up in relation to it as a conflicting feeling or idea. Then, go into each conflicting idea in depth in order to gain whatever realization about it that you need in order to make a true decision as to whether or not to continue with it, tweak and reformulate it, or leave it behind and quit thinking about it altogether. As you gain insight into what it is that’s preventing you from making a decision, you’ll know what other decisions you need to make first. Because decisions for change require sacrifice of some kind, they can produce a lot of inner turmoil that will need resolving in order to reside peacefully in that decision.

We know when we’ve actually made a decision because we’re no longer debating it while considering other options, and we simply go about creating it. We hold an idea firmly in our mind with no inner conflict or anxiety around what we have to give up in achieving it, and we feel a sense of purpose and inspiration in regards to it. A feeling of devotion and dedication to it fills us, and we feel peaceful and content in the reality of it. All distractions fade away and focus all activity towards producing it. We move forward with a clear conscience and a feeling of certainty, and no longer look back or miss what we left behind. We’re filled with a sense of excitement and anticipation, alive with the true power to create the life we desire in an intentional and deliberate manner. We gain a new sense of ourselves that becomes a self-perpetuating force, and we fall in love with life as our own creation and ourselves as our own creator.

Creativity – The Relationship between Choice, Will, and Creating Reality

 

It doesn’t take long to realize that in life all things exist in relationship to each other. There’s really no such thing as an independent or solitary act. Everything comes as a result of something else, or as a synchronized series of events that play out over a period of time. While we can say that “no choice” is a choice, or that unconscious decisions that are seemingly made without awareness or in a deliberate manner, that are based primarily on feelings, emotions, or impulses of some sort, are still using your will because you’re willingly acting them out, this is passive use of the will that likewise creates in our life in an unconscious manner. Choice and will, like all faculties of the mind and soul, exist in both active and passive form based on awareness and deliberate action, or without direct awareness and in an automatic fashion.

Anytime we’re aware of choice, and we negotiate it in an intentional manner, it usually comes as a decision between a conditioned response and a conflict of some sort as a conscience or inner awareness that makes us hesitate and resist it, and so we look for other options. Whenever we make an “actual” and true decision in a fully aware and intentional manner, we naturally leave all other options we were previously debating behind and move forward to create the choice we’ve made as our reality. We remove our attention from all other ideas, become single-minded, focusing exclusively on the reality of our choice, and we direct all of our attention and actions into creating it. Once our mind is made up and all conflict dissolves, our only movement becomes directed by the imagined reality of our decision, and we act systematically to create it. This is why “choice and free will” are always presented together, because they’re different aspects of the same creative process.

If we experience the inability to do something that we believe we’ve chosen to do, it’s due to the fact that we haven’t truly made the decision for it, but are still bartering, debating, and negotiating it. It can be showing us that we still harbor inner conflict around it, still have attachments of some kind to what we’re deciding against, or we have conflicting beliefs and values of some sort that are holding us to indecision. Often our emotions and feelings are contradicting it or wanting something different than our rational, reasoning mind, and so our mind is divided. Anytime there’s a division between the subconscious and conscious mind, with one aspect of the mind acting to contradict or counteract the other one, we sit in limbo not knowing what to do, always going back and forth, sabotaging our own efforts, never actually able to settle on one or the other, until someone or something makes the decision for us and we no longer have a choice in the matter.

 

While there’s a tendency for society to tell you to pick “one over the other”, to follow your heart and not your mind (as if they’re different things), the fact is, it’s always about a balance between the two. An alignment that forms a single mind as a single goal, free of all conflict, that works dynamically in-sync with each other to create the reality of that choice. Anytime we pose one aspect against another, we’re doomed to failure or a seeming success that merely forms the foundation for inner turmoil and conflict to play out as a constant realization of betraying ourselves in some way. Thought and emotion, intellect and feeling, heart and head, are always unified, one producing and sustaining the other. There’s no such thing as a division in the true sense of the word. The masculine and feminine aspects are only capable of creating when forming union that produces an offspring that’s a combination of the two. They always act in unison as “one idea” that produces the material reality as a correspondence of that idea.

The Power of Emotions

Making a “true decision” where all aspects are aligned and agree, can often be quite difficult, and may actually come over a period of time while different aspects that negate the desired outcome in some way are played out and explored in greater depth, so that the necessary realizations can be obtained, which serves to confirm what you need to decide. Our subconscious, which is the seat of all of our conditioning as our mental paradigm, habitual tendencies, regular emotional states, and dynamics that are magnetic and compulsive in nature, seeks only to maintain the status quo as a form of self-preservation by continuing to play out the thematic dynamics that we’ve built our identity around, and need to keep playing out somehow in order to maintain our “sense of self”.

We keep casting ourselves in the roles we know how to play, and telling the story we know how to tell and do so in a natural, automatic, and compulsive fashion. We’re magnetically drawn to it even when intellectually and through reasoning we know we don’t want to be or shouldn’t. It works through our emotions, which are often gripping and intense, holding us captive to passions and intense emotional experiences that saturate our body with the chemistry and hormones of the emotions, satisfying a form of addiction. Emotions, being the motivating force of the subconscious mind and body, which is habitual and automatic in nature, are habit forming and we literally become addicted to them, even when we hate ourselves for doing it. Emotions, which are the driving force of instinct, are designed to produce automatic behavior that don’t require will, thought and decision, or self-awareness of any kind. We become addicted to pain just as easily as we do pleasure, because they’re both a drug produced internally that we become dependent on and use not only to create and maintain our state of mind, but also to create our reality out of, which is how we act in an indirect manner on ourselves to create ourselves.

Anytime emotions and passions go against reasoning and rational thought, they nearly always win, because they’re experience as a strong internal sensation that’s very compelling with a form of urgency, whereas clear thought is more neutral and something we seem to experience in more of a dissociated perspective of witnessing as being outside of or above the situation looking at it from the perspective of a “whole” rather than in it as a “part of it”. Once emotions take hold and grip us in some way, usually through memory of some kind that’s used to create in the present, it tends to cloud and control our thinking through a form of seductive persuasion, making it difficult to resist.

When this happens, decisions usually come as a gradual process, where once the desire to change becomes persistent, and we continue playing out the emotional dramas preventing us from implementing them, we begin having realizations about them that start dissolving the illusion we’ve built around them, loosening their grip, and they begin disintegrating and falling away. Once we have a notion as the desire to change in some manner, breaking an established pattern, it tends to steadily grow until it reaches fruition as an actual decision that we begin acting on to make it an actual reality, leaving the old behind and starting something new.

The Power of Belief

In a like manner, we can appear to have made a decision, and started it in motion, while maintaining a belief of some kind that prevents it, causes a feeling of conflict somehow, or results in what seems like the inability to take action, or not knowing what to do. Beliefs can be quite difficult to identify because they form the very basis of our experience of reality, and we often mistake them as being “fact or true”. Belief and the reality formed from it is the most basic and prevalent demonstration of the “power of the mind to create reality”. We create the experience of our beliefs perfectly without realizing that it’s our own creation, and is not real or true at all in the objective sense. Because many of them come from actual experience in terms of how we “interpreted” the events of our life by telling ourselves a story about them, we don’t realize that we actually made them up using our imagination (will). Likewise, we’re also taught certain ideas that we accepted as being factual or true, and use as the foundation for building entire networks that are all based on the same belief system, and accepting the ideas of others that were given to us and willingly adopted by us as our own thoughts. Usually the only way to upsurge a belief and bring it back into a fluid and negotiable state, is by introducing contradictory evidence that proves it wrong, one-sided, or reveals it as a skewed version. While many choose instead to argue against, deny, or ignore altogether anything that serves to shine light on the validity of long held beliefs, this too is a decision that we willingly act out and employ as the means of creating the reality it implies.

When we always act to defend our beliefs instead of being willing to consider other possibilities, we condemn ourselves to the confinement of the reality of those beliefs. When we feel we’ve made a clear and conscious decision to change our life in some way, no longer running on memory and autopilot, and are confronted with what seems like the inability to act in order to create it, or the “path to take” in moving in the new direction, it’s usually due to a conflicting and limiting belief of some sort. We know when both aspects of our mind are in alignment with each other when we make a decision that lacks any kind of inner conflict, and we feel a sense of passion and urgency in acting to create it. We don’t have to figure anything out, we’re not stumped or confused, lacking motivation of the drive to do it, but instead, from that point on direct all of our attention and energy into actively moving forward on it and systematically producing it.

The Unified Reality of the Lower Plane and the Nature of the Subconscious Mind

There’s always a Divine Paradox playing out in the most basic sense as what appears to be a single reality that’s actually three-fold in nature as multiple planes that act together to create the perception of a single, unified reality. This is because what we refer to as the “higher plane” and it’s parallel “lower plane” exist in polarity to each other through what we could call a “reflection” of each other as a reverse image or as an “inner reality” that forms the basis for the perception of itself as an “outer reality” where the inherently “passive aspects” become the “active components” of its outer reflection. And while we like to think that the upper plane exists in a harmonious state of unity and singularity, while the lower plane is dual in nature and exists in a primarily “separated state” of individual components all operating independent of each other, one having nothing to do with the other, the fact is that what we call a “unified state” actually exists as having “dual” masculine and feminine components as the electromagnetic forces that serve to structure and animate the entire material plane in an harmonious and unified manner.

We take this basic misconception a step further and say that “we are all one” down here in the material plane, while imagining that when we return to a true unified state of shedding the material body and existing purely in our spiritual state, that we “blend back into the whole“, shedding our identity as an individual. Yet exactly the opposite is true. We are able to manifest (be born) into the material plane by taking on a physical body of the animal kingdom. This body is solely governed within the material plane by the subconscious mind which in the lower plane is the feminine and passive aspect of the mind, that is actually the active component that has full creative capacity but no “personal will” to think for itself in terms of original thoughts or to “create itself” in an individual manner apart from its species and kind. The subconscious mind is what we also refer to as the “instinctual mind” as the morphogenetic field (astral) of the material world that generates reality based on sensory, emotional impulses that serve to produce automatic behaviors.

The language of the subconscious is symbolic and metaphorical as ideas formed in the imagination as pictures and the reality of an idea. These “reality oriented thoughts” are memory and archetypes of some form that simply act to impregnate the subconscious with a possibility for producing as an experience that gives it an automatic program that it plays out as a means of creating without resistance. Emotion as a state of mind is always directly connected to memory as the reality and type of experience produced by that emotion that multiplies and increases it through the expression of it, which serves to give us more of the same emotion. Emotion is the electrical current that stimulates and sets into motion an entire unconscious process as a perception of reality that produces automatic behaviors. Emotions serve as a “colored lens” we look through that determine what aspect of reality as containing an infinite number of possibilities we act to “tune into”, bring into an active state by resonating with it, and cooperatively participate in providing the vehicle and the means for it to express in the outer world as a reality that affords us an experience of a particular nature as an automated process. Whenever we’re triggered by a strong emotion, it instantly renders us unconscious and we begin running an automatic program.

This is self-evident and very easy to realize by simply observing our own minds activity, and realizing that emotions are always associated to memories as the “state we were in” when we created the memory as a story-line of some sort, that also acts to keep that memory playing out in our life in a repetitive manner by simply maintaining the emotional state associated with it. We are conditioned (trained in an automatic fashion) to dynamics as emotional states that produce distinct types of realities that have correlating behaviors inherent in them. Emotions form “chemistry in our body” that act in much the same way any psychoactive drug acts, and not only alters our state of mind forming hallucinations of various sorts, but are also addictive. We become addicted to certain emotional states, and we not only live out of those states in a habitual fashion, but we act to create the experiences that will give us more of the same type of emotions. This acts to provide ourselves with a “fix”, because we’re capable of producing the drug internally through the proper external stimulus.

By allowing emotions being transmitted through projections of others and as active states in the atmosphere around us to enter into our body, take hold and rise up in our imagination as the reality of the emotion, that’s then used in place of the neutral, objective reality as an illusion that simultaneously produces automatic behaviors, we become instinctual animals that are governed by the same forces that operate within the natural world of the plant and animal kingdom. In this sense, we are absolutely directly connected to and a part of the “same mind” as being “one with” everybody and everything else. When we live primarily out of this aspect of our mind, we become like an animal and prone to the “herd mentality” of simply creating out of our formative conditioning as a trained mindset that lacks the ability to ‘think for itself” and therefore shape itself as an individual apart from the herd through active use of choice and free will. This conscious, willful aspect of the mind is the active mind of the higher plane that’s always self-creating in an intentional and deliberate way, cultivating it’s individuality by not being subject to emotional states and the illusions they create, and thereby not acting as a blind and passive receptor for the thoughts of others. Anytime we utilize the higher capacities of our mind to self-create in a unique fashion, we shape ourselves as individuals that are strikingly different from the crowd and are not influence and changed by the group mentality of the “collective unconscious”.

When we actively cultivate ourselves by first recognizing and fully embracing our divine nature and higher capacities of the mind to create within the material world in a deliberate way, then actively utilize those capacities in the everyday sense of staying fully conscious and present within the events of life making constant choices as to what to take on and allow to express through us, and what to keep out so it doesn’t contaminate us, we become the master of the lower plane. The conscious, willful and aware mind is the aspect of the mind that guides, directs, and seeds the passive, subconscious mind with the ideas it wants to create as an experience of reality through which it then actively creates itself by identifying with those creations. Whatever reality we act as a channel for expressing and creating as “our reality”, serve to shape us through how we associate with it through the experience it gives us. As we have experiences, whether passively or actively produced, we are sense ourselves within those experiences, and identify with them. We become the product of our experiences, all of which, naturally, are self-created either from a primarily unconscious state that feels as though our experiences simply happen to us without our control, and therefore not being created by us, or as intentionally produced by how we choose to use our own mind and imagination to create the type of experiences we want to use as the means to shape ourselves by way of them.

A great deal of confusion can result from the inability to distinguish the difference between neutral events within the outer world that seemingly take place without our will or control, that we refer to as ‘objective in nature”, and how we “experience those events” as an inner process that reforms them in our imagination giving them meaning while telling ourselves a story about them. All events of the material world, though produced by the subconscious mind as a group mentality, exist as neutral and unbiased to the conscious mind of the higher nature that doesn’t get its identity from the material plane, but rather uses the elements of the material world as the means for creating its own experiences. When we live out of our unconscious mind as our conditioning, we’re always using the memories of the past as the means for interpreting the events of the present to mean the same thing. Whatever emotion is being expressed in the event in terms of it stimulating us with that same emotion, determines what memories we access and call forth that were created out of events of the same emotional nature, and use as the means of producing the same “type of experiences” as an “interpretation” of the current events. In this way, the lower mind of instinct driven by emotion and memory govern and render the higher capacities of our mind passive and use our will to create in our life in an impulsive and unconscious manner.

While we tend to think that life itself is basically dual in nature, because only dual aspects are active on the lower plane, the fact is life as reality is three-fold in nature, and produced by three parallel dimensions that together form the same plane as multidimensional in nature. Likewise, the mind and soul are also three-fold in nature, and all act in unison to create the illusion of a unified material reality. Just as we classify that there are “4 Elements” that make up the material world, there are actually only 2 primary and actual Elements, the masculine (Fire) and Feminine (water), who blend together as a combination to produce the other 2 (air and earth) as their offspring. Likewise, while there is always an active and passive component of the same thing on each plane that together operate as complementary opposites to stimulate each other, the planes themselves also exist in polarity to each other where one is active and expansive and the other passive and receptive. While we have a subconscious mind as the dominate mind of the lower plane that acts to “birth” and give rise to the self-conscious mind of the “personal will” that identifies and operates fully within that plane, we also have an active component of the higher plane as our Higher Self (Mind) and Will, that exists in a polar state to our lower self.

When the conscious mind of the lower plane is active, it tends to override and prevent the conception and transmission of the Higher Will. The only way we can draw down and act as a receptor for Higher Consciousness is by quieting and returning the “conscious, thinking mind” to a passive and subdued state, so that the Higher Mind can act to impregnate the subconscious mind, which acts as a natural receptor for the masculine counterpart, with a seeded idea that it’ll turn into a reality. The subconscious mind reflects and casts the image of the conceived idea in the imagination, allowing the conscious mind to witness it as a mental impression and realize that it has come from a higher source because it’s original in nature, and therefore align itself with it and act in a cooperative manner to co-create it as an experience of reality. Reality in this case being a product of both aspects of the mind acting in a harmonious and unified fashion to produce a joint reality. The Higher Will seeds the lower mind of the subconscious with an idea that it then produces both as an internal reality that’s witnessed by the self-conscious mind of the personal will, and together they act to produce the external reality of the same nature as an experience of it, that’s then used by the soul as the means of shaping itself by way of that experience.

The paradox becomes obvious when we realize that the entire lower plane exists in a unified state within the higher plane, which is what serves to organize, orchestrate, and sustain it through its passive component, which is the active and dominate component of the lower plane. The entire lower plane is unified through the same passive mind and DNA, which is a component of the subconscious mind that’s also passive and receptive in nature and seeded as suggestion by the active and willful mind of the higher plane. The lower plane itself also has active and passive components, both of which interact with each other to produce a unified reality. The Higher Consciousness of the upper plane, which exists in a unified state of containing dual aspects in a harmonious state of equilibrium (represented by the element of air or atmosphere), separates as it descends into the lower planes of materialism, producing a masculine (fire) and feminine (water) aspect of the same thing necessary in order to perceive itself as another, and to bear witness to its own creation.

The Higher Self, which contains both the active and passive components, just as the material mind it produces does, divides Itself as the means of creating an inner and outer, self and other, essence and object, all of which are the same idea being played out on different levels and scales while partially submerged in an animal body governed by the subconscious mind that produces and maintains the entire material plane through a passive state that’s operated in an automatic fashion by instinct. Within the material plane of the subconscious mind, we are prone to becoming “like everyone else” and accepting the general mindset of mass consciousness through a form of “herd mentality” where the same impulses cause us to behave as if “one unit”. On the higher plane of what we think of as a unified state of true oneness, where the conscious and willful aspect is dominate, we imagine that we lack “individuality” and exist as a part of the same consciousness and have no will of our own. Yet the fact is, the only thing that transcends the lower realms and is drawn up and into the higher realms is the part of us that’s individual in nature and created by our own hand through active use of choice and free will. All aspects of ourselves developed to be “animal like”, stay within the lower planes of which they are a part.

When we live our life out of a predominately passive state of mind, driven by our emotions and programmed in an automatic fashion by the thoughts of others that we blindly accept as our own, acting impulsively through various forms of emotional, knee-jerk reactions where we’re completely controlled by the elemental forces of the lower regions, we develop ourselves through a lower, instinctual form of consciousness, and after death of the body, remain in the lower regions of the animal kingdom. When we employ our ability to consciously create by thinking for ourselves, making decisions based on our original and individual thoughts, and willfully act out those choices to form our reality, and we sculpt ourselves as self-made individuals that are unique in nature, where no two are alike outside of the fact that we all share an animal body with basic needs. At death of the body, the energies that it’s comprised of disintegrate and migrate back into their natural habitats. All energies return to the sphere from which it originates and resides as a natural state. The only part of us that transcends to the higher spheres is the parts that were self-created in an intentional manner and formed our individuality. Only our individuality exists in full and remains intact on the planes of higher consciousness.

When we create the larger part of ourselves to be “unique and original”, created while in a fully conscious state through personal will, we transcend to higher planes where will is the governing and active factor. The most fundamental paradox that we all live out of is the fact that we are all responsible for our own creation, and who we become is based on either lending our will to others, or utilizing the higher capacities of our mind to direct and create ourselves. We are always either being controlled by material means of some form, or the one doing the controlling. We’re always either consciously utilizing forces to self-create, or we’re being utilized by them. We’re either being determined by others and society, or we’re determining ourselves by separating from them and identifying fully with our divine nature and our ability to self-create by way of directing the natural forces that govern the lower, material realm of emotion, memory, and instinct. All that’s created to be of an animal nature stays within that realm and isn’t capable of transcending to the higher realms that require full use of higher capacities of the mind. All who are self-created to be of a divine nature transcend naturally to that domain at the death of their animal body.

Learning how to Operate your Own Mind – The Power of Questions, Wondering, and Curiosity

One of the best ways to Learn how to use the Power of Attraction, is by Learning how to ask Meaningful Questions

We’ve all heard the saying “ask and you shall receive, seek and you shall find, knock and the door shall be opened unto you”. But what many don’t realize is that this isn’t an inspirational saying designed to encourage, but is stating a law of the mind more as a fact in how to operate it. The brain has what’s called the “reticular activating system” (RAS) which is what “directs our awareness” and is literally “operated” by questions and inquiries of various sorts, and scans our environment looking for information that pertain to a possible answer. Questions and answers are opposites of the same thing. When the brain perceives information that may provide answers to our questions, it places our attention on them, we notice them, and we intuitively recognize them as pertaining to our questions through a form of association. These often come as insights, realizations around an idea, or as an intuitive awareness that’s a form of synchronicity.

Questions and answers are synchronized to each other, and are of the same frequency or nature. We are connected vibrationally to everything in our outer environment, and are always resonating with the information around us through attraction and repulsion. Activating same information by awakening and “vibrating it”, while having no effect on others. The heart center of the body is what connects us to our outer environment as our subconscious mind, and is what would we could call “instinctual” in nature, because it interacts with everything around us at the subconscious level. It’s always in a state of anticipation, and identifying what’s the same as we are (same vibration), and what’s not (like the immune system which is operated by the same principle and is regulated by the Thymus gland which is attached to the heart). All pertinent information from the environment (horizontal plane) that we resonate with comes into our system through the heart, where it’s distributed throughout the body, some of which is sent to the brain for sensory decoding, and the RAS of the brain directs our attention and awareness of certain aspects that pertain to the frequencies of our questions.

Whenever we wonder about something, or compose a thought into an actual question, we form a frequency that connects to the same frequency in everything around us, and sets into a motion a form of “seeking out the answer”. Even when we’re no longer thinking about it, the subconscious mind continues using it to scan and connect to the same idea in our everyday life, and when it resonates with information of the same nature, we notice it and it stands out. Sometimes we have a direct intuitive awareness of it, and realize it pertains to the answer, other times it seems like a coincidence that we’re not quite sure why we’re noticing it. All coincidences and intuitive recognition that are not investigated further or followed up on, don’t go anywhere. We have to discern and interpret it in order for it to have any meaning. We have to see it as a clue or sign of some sort and “merge into it” in order for an association to take place.

Most answers don’t come as a one-time realization, but more as one idea, that when recognized for its relevance and followed, leads to another idea, which leads to another idea, and formulates a chain-of-association that ultimately reveals the answer in its fullness. One idea or a notion often appears as a closed door, which has to be penetrated in order for the unknown to become known through observation and realization. It’s only ideas that we pursue and continuously form more questions around with every clue that lead us to actual answers that bring a full understanding. We only truly comprehend something through an experience of it.

Usually answers come that when digested and integrated into our current model only serve to form more questions, and so a single inquiry can set into motion a lifetime of learning. It’s only what we have an interest in and sense of curiosity around that engages and intrigues us that naturally forms the path of our development as a learning process that comes through direct experience. By realizing the answers in real life situations as the direct experience of them, they are automatically integrated into our mind, modifying our mental paradigm through incorporating them. All information obtained through experience becomes synthesized as memory and reforms our perceptual lens which readily “sees it” as a part of our outer reality from that point forward.

Experience, which brings self-realization, breeds understanding. What we understand through our own realization becomes known to us as an intuitive awareness. Intuitive perception comes as a knowing that seems to be an integral part of us without a direct awareness of why or how we know. It comes more in an automatic fashion. When we intuitively know about something as an in-depth understanding of its true nature, it doesn’t come by what’s communicated through its outer appearance, but is felt and understood inwardly. As we realize things through our experience of them, we realize things about ourselves at the same time, because it’s “our” realization, not one being explained to us by someone else or as an account of their experience that we substitute for our own. We form the understanding out of our own mind, and it automatically becomes a part of our mind as a new mental filter that allows us to see it as a natural part of our normal everyday perception.

Once we realize how this process works as a law of the mind through resonance (attraction), sympathetic induction (absorption), and coherence (synthesis), we can gain a better understanding of the importance of questions. Many times we ask questions whose answers would not be valuable to us in any way, or as a means of drawing those types of ideas to us by giving our attention to them. By learning how to ask pertinent questions whose answers would provide us with valuable information and resources in the practical sense of gaining knowledge that can be utilized to create in a meaningful way, we facilitate our own growth and development while simultaneously connecting ourselves to those ideas all around us.

Questions and their answers are of the same idea, and one acts to initiate the other as a pathway of understanding by merging into and becoming one with ideas in their whole form. They are of the same idea as a frequency (pattern), and answers are drawn to us through resonance, then absorbed by us as induction (experienced), and integrated to form coherence as a shift in vibration through the incorporation of new information. Anytime we wonder about something, we become magnetized with the whole idea and we set a process in motion to find the answer in everything around us. As we study, imagine new ideas, and wonder about whatever remains unknown, we draw knowledge of the unknown factors to us as the fulfillment of a wish.

Energy Practitioners: Working with Subtle Energy as Consciousness

 Feeling, Thought, Emotion, and Vibratory Frequency

The thrust of “Energy Medicine” has gotten off to a slow start that has often been sidetracked with endless practices that are born out of a skewed knowledge and understanding of law in terms of how “invisible forces” produce “visible (material) effects”. The problem is further compounded by the failure to grasp the true nature of what we call energy as it pertains to human psychology and the physical body. Just as there’s confusion around the difference between the mind and brain, and consciousness and the mind, there’s no accurate distinction made between the spirit and the soul, or the spirit-soul and the body. Because of basic errors made in in the perception of it as the paradigm used for understanding it, practices that have been developed to work with it in a creative and healing way, have been largely ineffective, and in some cases even harmful.

One of the most basic forms of ignorance comes from approaching invisible forces as subtle energy through the same laws that govern material manifestation, or approaching it from the perspective that subtle energy can be “manipulated” and controlled or redirected using the physical conduit through which it flows, meaning that the material body produces and is in a “causal relationship” with consciousness itself, and literally produces or generates it. This idea is a fundamental error in thinking, and like all premises that are formed out of an error, everything that evolves out of it is a reflection and by-product of that same error. The body doesn’t produce consciousness, it merely acts as a vehicle or instrument for it. The Subtle realm of conscious energy exists in polarity (the active life-force that inhabits a passive body) to the gross realm and operates according to opposite laws that are complementary in nature (electromagnetism), and act together through the relationship they form to produce a coherent reality.

The consciousness of the body, exists as the mind (soul) which is an individualized composite built up through an accumulative process, that first produces its physical equivalent as a material reality that provides it with an experience that’s formed into a memory by how it’s interpreted to have meaning, which is of the same “nature” as the mind that’s producing it, and is integrated into the vibratory structure of the mind, updating or developing it as a paradigm or mental model. This law of self-expression that produces physical realities as projections that superimpose patterns over the external, outer world, called our “perceptual lens”, reorganizes matter into a composition that “matches it” as an outer expression of an inner feeling.

Subtle energy, which penetrates the body (moves into and through it), while also existing outside and separate from it, is felt in the body as feeling sensations, that are actually stimulating various parts (endocrine glands and major organs) of the body forming a “corresponding state”, by saturating the body with the chemical equivalent of the vibratory frequency. Subtle energy is consciousness that has accumulated into an individual pattern as a model that resonates with the body, organizing it at the molecular level to form an analogous expression as the physical equivalent of the quality of consciousness itself, forming and determining the energetic state and health of the body.

In order to “heal” the body and change how it’s being stimulated and organized, we have to work directly with the individual consciousness as their psychology. Their psychology is the expression of their mind as their soul, which “functions” in a certain way as self-expression that simultaneously self-creates. A person’s psychology, formed primarily of values, beliefs, memory, conditioning, preferences, tendencies, temperament, disposition, and so on, as their mental paradigm, forms their perceptions and behaviors as their personality, lifestyle, and habitual routines that create and regulate their health and emotional well-being as a natural by-product of how they care for themselves and conduct their life. So anything that’s “of the body”, originates through the active and inactive forces of the mind. The material body is the passive receptor of the consciousness of the mind that forms (and reforms) it while operating through it “as” it. The mind is “causal” and the body is the “effect”. We cannot work with the effect as a means of changing the cause. We have to always work with the cause to alter and transform the effect it produces as its opposite, yet equivalent counterpart. In this way we can realize that all physical manifestations of the body are psychosomatic in nature (whether unconscious or conscious) and the product of the soul-mind that organizes and operates it.

Physical Manipulation and Emotional Release:

Many of what we call “energy practitioners” (which have no defined criteria for the title itself) works almost exclusively through various forms of physical manipulation (massage, pounding or slapping, tapping, stretching, hands on, electrical frequencies, vibration, etc.) designed to “release” pent up energy held in various parts of the body as tension, inhibited energy flow, and stress, believing or professing that it’s and “energetic cure”, without ever seeming to realize that the mental complex that produced it to begin with, simply reforms it. So while there may be a temporary relief, it’s often short lived and is simply recreated and reestablished as an energy block, congestion, or concentration by the mental complex that produced it in the first place. Because this approach doesn’t produce a lasting effect it’s not considered “evidence based medicine”, and is therefore labeled “pseudoscience”. This is the equivalent of the Sorcerer and the Magician, where the Sorcerer hasn’t taken the time or put forth the effort to acquire “real knowledge” of the craft, to be able to manipulate matter using the mind, and instead tries to manipulate the mind using the body. They go through the motion while never employing any real science.

Anytime an energy block is opened and cleared, it’s experienced as an “emotional release”. We experience a simultaneous emotional change that’s the result of releasing the tension held in a certain part of the body. Emotions of any kind, but particularly negative emotions, produce “tension” in various parts of the body. The emotional release isn’t the healing itself, but rather provides us with the pathway that connects the thought as a memory, stored within the body as the emotion of the memory. Emotions are always connected to thoughts as the “memory of the thought held in the body”. These memories, often called “mental complexes”, represent “whole patterns” as a universal theme (archetype) used to create a personalized experience of the same nature, converting it into a personal memory of some form. By identifying the emotion of the energetic tension held within the body, we can identify the corresponding thought process as memories of some sort “causing it”.

By working with the psychological aspect as the thematic thought process married to the emotion as the physical response to our own internal perceptions, we can “break the pattern” of the thoughts by transforming or re-experiencing the memory itself. Memories as perceptions that contain certain type of thoughts and emotions as a “story-line” of some sort, program our subconscious mind by giving it a prototype or template for producing the physical equivalent. Emotions are the chemical components of our thoughts. Thoughts produce a chain of association that simultaneously stimulates (produces and electrical charge as a messenger) the chakra system, nervous system, and endocrine system of the body manufacturing the hormones that “alter the body’s state” to match the mind, while regulating all functions of the body through the chemical messengers as “in-forming” the body. Emotions not only produce our behaviors, but alters how our whole biological system works.

The true basis of “Energy Medicine” is exactly correlated with the ancient practice of Alchemy as Personal Transformation that works on the body to reconstitute it through the mind. By working with the mind, we can change our perception, beliefs as thematic patterns, our emotional states, the chemistry that alters our molecular structure, and change how the biological system of the body expresses and functions.  The mind produces the chain-of-association that results in distinct behaviors, lifestyle, and physical condition of the body. All of this is done without ever addressing or working directly with the body itself, but rather using it for what it actually is . . . a feedback loop as to the hidden structure of the mind producing and maintaining it.

This is why Allopathic Medicine fails in the most basic sense to “heal” illness and disease, and Alternative methods are falling into the same tendency. Because they work by way of the body, which is simply the end result of a much more subtle process. Conventional medicine, which can have a tendency to produce more problems than it solves, fails to appreciate the true power of the mind and creative spirit as the invisible conscious forces of which the body acts as a mere vehicle for. They work through the fundamental error that the body “produces” consciousness, because they fail to recognize or even understand in the most basic sense what consciousness is, let alone how it operates.

Medicine of all forms has unfortunately fallen into the same realm as material science and often doesn’t even address or acknowledge the much greater aspect of what we call “material reality” that’s purely invisible, yet holds together and organizes matter into patterns that have distinct behaviors inherent in them along with a timing mechanism as a growth process based on “accumulation and integration” of information as memory that literally modifies and reforms the material body through the mysterious and unconscious process of cellular regeneration. By working with the invisible forces of consciousness and the individual mind, we can change the state and organization of the body, changing the nature of its molecular form, biological function, and genetic expression.

Consciousness in the most primary sense of the human mind, which is a smaller scale version of the group, species, world, and universal mind, serves to form our thoughts, which exist independent of the body and act as the energetic charge or messenger that operates the nervous system of the body. Feelings as vibratory frequencies form thoughts as coherence between the heart and brain, which serve to stimulate the subtle energy system of the body producing emotions in response to our thoughts as the chemical equivalent. Emotions are experienced as “tension in the body” that’s located in different spots, and is referred to as producing energetic “congestion” or “blocks” that prevent a relaxed and free flow of energy within the entire subtle / physical body. The subtle body is what regulates the physical body as a bridge between the mind and body.

Our emotional states tend to be caused by mental complexes as “patterns that form behavioral dynamics” by altering and regulating the chemistry of the body. Our thoughts (ideas we run through our mind) produce an energetic stimulus (sensation) in the parts of the body that correspond and are correlated to the thoughts (chakra and endocrine system) which produce the chemistry (hormone) of the thought as emotion. Emotions alter the “state and condition” of the body to match the thought, and are how thoughts first enter fully into and manifest in the material realm as a reality by how it not only forms, but also operates matter through behaviors that “act out” (express) the idea of the thought. Repeated stimulus as thoughts and emotions that we dwell in and continue to maintain  over an extended period of time form tension in the body as energetic congestion that form blocks, and eventually manifest as a physical malady of some sort. We can tell the nature of the thought producing it based on what part and organ of the body it manifests in. Thoughts that produce distinct emotions are consistently felt in specific parts of the body.

So to relax tension in the body as an emotional release, opening up and restoring the energetic flow within the subtle body to a harmonious state, tends to only produce a temporary affect, because the consciousness (vibratory frequency) of the mind, in a relatively short period of time, simply reforms the tension as a complex or pattern. All vibration as subtle and conscious energy acts to organize matter into patterns through a form of tension, which takes on natural functions and behaviors. Form which produces a system, always indicates the functions, operations, and behaviors it naturally takes on. So whatever form (material substance) is shaped and held together through energetic tension (mental complex), expresses in very distinct ways as creative and biological processes. The cause of all material manifestation is a product of the mind as the consciousness of the body. In order to permanently change the energetic expression of a system, and therefore how it forms and functions, we have to change the nature of the consciousness responsible for forming and animating it.

Vibration as a feeling contains within it an idea (pattern) in its latent form as an archetype or universal idea. Through resonance, it enters into (is inducted) and impregnates the individual mind (auric field), which turns it into a virtual reality as an imaginary thought. The imaginary thought produces an electrical charge in the brain that travels through the nervous system to alter the state of the body to be of the same frequency as the thought by changing its chemical composition and how it behaves. The idea as a virtual (potential) reality, is used by the heart to connect with that same idea (frequency) in the outer environment by resonating with it. By producing the inner reality and behaviors of the idea while simultaneously connecting with the means of fulfillment in the outer world as a co-creation with others and the environment, we willfully act to produce the reality of the idea as both an inner and outer experience of it.

So anytime we’re taking the approach of actually working to “heal the body” instead of fixing it, managing its symptoms, or providing a temporary form of relief, we have to approach it by acknowledging the fact that the only person who can heal the body is the person who’s in charge of creating and running the body through its perception, thoughts, and emotional states. All healing is “self-healing”. As Doctors and Practitioners all we can ever really do is provide the education or facilitate the experience that will allow others to do their own work and make the lifestyle changes necessary to heal themselves as a result.

The true way to work in energetic terms is to use the proper frequency necessary to induce the proper state of mind, while introducing a suggestion as an intention to form the imaginary thought as an inner experience of the desired reality as if it’s already true and happening (as a memory), which cultivates the proper emotions as the chemistry of the body, which alters its state as its vibratory frequency to match the reality of the thought. The mind and body are always in-sync energetically, and the mind is what produces all of the manifestations of the body, and is the only thing that can permanently transform those manifestations into something else.

Thought, Self-Creation, and the Nature of Karma

Karma is the Habituated State of Mind that forms all of Our Perceptions

howtoraise_compressed

Many people believe that karma is something that’s incurred only through actions of some kind, or that it’s okay to think about something as long as you don’t actually “do” anything. Pure thought is subtle (invisible) and seemingly inactive on the material plane, while feelings, sensation, and emotion are active forces that serve to stimulate us physically. We imagine that we can think without actually creating any consequences to our thoughts as long as we don’t act on our thoughts in the material sense. Thought is always individual in nature, each person having their own unique thoughts in response to any form of stimulation, whereas emotions are more universal in nature in the sense that we all experience the same basic type of emotions. Yet, in reality, thought, as a subtle force, underlies and forms the basis for all of our emotions and actions. Thought is “action” on the spiritual plane, and forms the pattern as an idea that becomes enacted on the material plane. To think is to literally create in the most basic sense of the idea. It’s not enough to control our behavior and what outward activities we engage in, we have to also control our thoughts which forms the basis for our activities. Thoughts form the images and patterns of material form and processes, and become the template for producing an analogous outer reality through corresponding behaviors..

Thought that we  dwell in and repeat consistently becomes habitual (normal), and forms the basis for our karma. As we think, we become our thoughts in form, and we view our life “through” our thoughts and mental impressions as our “perceptual lens” that reformulates neutral elements in the outer world to match the thoughts (thematic patterns) of our inner world. As we think we perceive, and through our perceptions we reshape (recompose) the outer reality through our interpretation of it. Thought is a natural force as a vibration that has a structuring mechanism inherent in it, that reformulates light (material substance) through sympathies and antipathies, reshaping it (changing how it appears) to be of the same nature as the thoughts. Our thoughts form an idea as a mental impression or internal reality out of our paradigm (vibratory structure as a model) that becomes the perceptual lens that we “look through” to see the same thing outside of us that’s inside of us. This mental impression as certain type of thoughts form internal representations of the outer world that are superimposed over it as our personal perception of it, and become a form of “organizational template” that’s used to form a subjective experience in place of objective facts. In this way, we ultimately make everything “about” us by building it into our story about things.

Our internal reality of thought, organizes and forms how we experience the outer material plane, and serves to shape us because we are always “one with our thoughts” (the one having our thoughts), and “identifying” with our own self-created experiences,  As we think and create, we’re always spawning, integrating and assimilating our own thoughts to form a greater overall matrix and becoming the summation of our thoughts as an evolutionary process of becoming, which forms our individuality “as” our thoughts. Thoughts are being propagated and transmitted through the astral plane or mind-field of the Earth, as universal thoughts that are adapted and modified into the individual thoughts of humanity or mass consciousness, and are “picked up on” by other minds of the same nature that can accommodate and utilize the same “type of thoughts” into their mental model in a congruent manner, in a subliminal fashion as thoughts that just “come to us out of the blue”. Whatever is of the same vibratory frequency as we are, or within near proximity, we resonate with and naturally absorb and perceive them as being our own, because they’re the same type of thoughts we normally think.

DMT vision

Thought also exists in universal form, as archetypes that are metaphorical in nature, and act as a prototype or model for using to create our own personal version of the same idea through an imaginary process. As we draw in and are able to conceive of an idea that’s of a universal nature, it’s steadily modified through a series of adaptation to various factors – the paradigm and mental structure of the individual, their level of development and maturity, how the idea is applied to specific conditions, circumstances, and situations pertinent to the individual, how they’re conformed to per-existing beliefs and assumptions, etc. – to produce a unique version of the same idea as a personalized version. Our karma is not only produced by our actions, but by way of our own thinking, which elicits complementary emotions and is what ultimately forms the basis for all of our actions. Our karma is the natural vibratory structure of our mind and how it naturally expresses to create our reality

Thought coming into the material mind in a pure, unadulterated form, has no emotional content or feeling (sensation) active in it, though it does contain feeling and emotion in its latent state, and acts to produce feeling as complementary sensations and emotions as its equivalent or that are of the same nature. The emotion elicited by thought, amplifies that intensifies the thought, producing the actions of the thoughts as our behaviors. All behavior is emotionally driven, and all emotions are produced by our thoughts. What we feel and think, we ultimately do, and what we do is the outer expression and activity of what we think. The mind is the soul, which in its spiritual aspect is the summation of our personal thoughts which form the basis for our perceptions and actions. These thoughts as mental impressions imprinted on our mind, that also produce the activities, experiences, and memories of the thoughts, is our karma as the patterns that determine the nature and course of our life events and what it is that we remain attached and connected to. As we think we become our thoughts and perceive the outer world through our thoughts about it, and we systematically produce the reality of our thoughts by changing how things “appear to us” through the story we tell ourselves about them.

We can work to develop ourselves as a soul-mind by learning how to willfully control our thoughts, and intentionally employ thoughts that will reshape our character, replace other thoughts of an undesirable and destructive nature, and align ourselves with new ideas that will serve to transform us making us able to connect with and produce a new kind of experience of reality. But we have to be able to do this while we’re still experiencing old karma, disciplining ourselves to correct our own tendencies, until the old karma runs its course, creates the experience it was designed to create, and energetically burns out. Then, the karma created by the new way of thinking can begin to take hold and transform our life experiences by way of them. So we’re always required to “pay forward” in terms of creating new forms of karma, knowing that they will only take effect in terms of our outer circumstances and situations once the effects of the old have passed. In some cases, as in relationships, changing our karma may only come through leaving the relationship, because we entered those relationships through “shared karma” as behavioral dynamics that the relationship will continue to hold us to, not allowing a new way of being. This is especially true when only one person in the relationship is changing and growing into new ways of being, while the other is still perceiving and acting out of the old karma..

The temptation to relapse involved in changing comes from the fact that just as our thinking and perceiving produced the outer events of our life, once the effect is produced outside of us, it then acts as the “cause” that stimulate in us more of the same type of thoughts, emotions, and behaviors in response to it. So a self-perpetuating cycle formed as the cause that produces an effect that becomes the cause for producing another effect that becomes the cause . . . . and so on, has to be neutralized. We have to break the cycle by recognizing how we’re being effected by our own life circumstances and situations, and resist the tendency to think the way they naturally cause us to think, while consciously choosing instead to employ other thoughts and not react to the emotional charge they habitually produce. This forms the basis for what we think of as having to “believe” in something even though it’s not happening and therefore self-evident, while knowing that it will come, because it operates by law, and is therefore always true as a kind of guarantee. The only real question becomes, how long it will take for our old way of thinking and emoting to dissolve and exhaust itself, no longer held together through a cooperative effort, and start manifesting as the changing conditions of our life circumstances.

Many of us have been taught to use our creative power by trying to change or manipulate other people and the outer conditions of our life, which is working on the “effect” and not with what’s causing the effect. This is operating “against law”, which is why it never works. In order to change the outer world, we have to change the inner world of the mind and individual character that’s producing it as a natural expression. As long as we remain the same in terms of our thinking, perceiving, and the emotional states we live out of, we continue producing and experiencing the same type of ideas as thematic life patterns over and over. Our thoughts form the patterns of our life as a theme that weaves together all the areas of our life in a congruent and consistent manner. Because of this, no matter how drastic the changing conditions and circumstances of our life, we simply recreate the same type of ideas using new elements. This is because the mind “organizes” any of the outer elements into the same pattern as a reality that produces the same type of experiences in a faithful and automatic fashion.

The Golden Rule – what we sow, we also reap, what we put out comes back to us ten-fold (self-perpetuating as a cause and effect relationship). As we act “on the world” and others through our thoughts, we also act “on ourselves” by living out of the reality produced by our thoughts and gaining a sense of ourselves through our own self-created experiences. Our projections (reality created through our perceptual lens) are reflected back to us, and what we send out as our imagined thoughts (inner reality), produce a corresponding effect, that then becomes the cause of our thoughts, and we live out of the reality produced by our way of thinking as a rhythmic cycle. This self-perpetuating cycle as a cause and effect relationships forms our karma, determines our life experiences, and how they serve to continue shaping us as a product of our own creation. This cyclical effect can go on indefinitely, and is only changed through self-awareness, realization, and the disciplined use of will to change the very nature of our thoughts and our character, while still being stimulated by the return of previous thoughts tempting us to relapse into our old way of thinking. This takes commitment and devotion to a process with no immediate return, while disciplining ourselves to develop mental fortitude and moral stamina to persevere against the odds of our own making.

Subtle Energy and the Energetic Nature of the Mind

Our body has an energetic structure as well as a physical one. This energetic structure is often referred to as the subtle body or etheric body that’s a form of double our twin to the physical body. Energy can move into and through matter, and is not “formed” like matter as a solid and fixed structure, but rather as a field of energy that’s always vibrating and morphing and changing form based on a constant exchange of energy with everything around it. Subtle energy is comprised of light, as everything is, and so contains within it the properties of light that exist as an octave that’s a range of vibration as its frequency. A light body as the internal aspects of light, contain the full colors of the spectrum as its vibratory structure. Each color within the spectrum vibrates at a slightly different rate and undergoes a specialized “mode of consciousness” as an aspect of an overall vibratory patterning or frequency. The subtle body, like light itself, is invisible to the physical senses, and has an innate structure of seven colors as seven aspects that make up a whole. These subtle energy centers exist in the body as chakras that form the energy processing centers of the body as the “mind” or soul of the body.

The subtle energy centers of the body act as conductors, filtering energies so they can combine through resonance. The convergence of these energy fields along a central axis forms a chakra. These chakras are vortexes of moving and spinning energy, which exist in relationship to the endocrine glands, which produce and secret hormones into the blood stream of the body, which alters our state and controls our bodily functions. Hormones are regulatory chemicals that regulate our physical state to match our mental or energetic state. Our physical condition is always produced as the direct equivalent of our mental and emotional condition.

This subtle energy system of the body “is” the mind or soul of the body. The mind interacts with energy all around it through a natural metabolic and digestive process, and directly acts on the body to stimulate and regulate its biological functions as an expression or correlation of the minds energetic state. Our energetic state is the combination of feelings picked up around us, emotions as the bodily chemistry produced by the feelings, and the thoughts that form the internal reality as imagining that projects the inner state outward, through the mind’s field which extends quite some distance from the body, superimposing it over the outer reality as our perceptual lens, that determines what we see and interact with, and what we don’t.

The chakras of the body process and filter energy through resonance, which draws in and mingles with what’s of the same nature as it is, while rejecting and repelling what’s not. We can only fully absorb into our system what is similar in nature to us, or what is within our same vibratory frequency as being of a “like-mind”. This can also be thought as only absorbing into our mind what can be perceived, explained, and understood using our mental paradigm. Through this fundamental process of resonance as a form of filtering mechanism, energies are sorted out according to their type and class as a category, sphere of consciousness, or kingdom. This filtering system acts to separate the gross energies as our animalistic primal instincts, from the refined energies as our spiritualized moral aspects.

The chakra system of the body is the internal structure of our subtle energy body as the mind itself, or soul that inhabits the body, and bonds to it through energetic sympathy. Because of this reason, the chakra system provides us with the process necessary to undergo healing through psychological development that promotes spiritual growth. All healing comes by bringing the mind and body into harmony through psychological health and conscious awareness of our true nature and our soul’s relationship to the body. It gives us a charted course for working directly with our minds ability to control and regulate the natural biological processes of the body by managing our state-of-mind and fostering in a deliberate manner our moral development. By understanding the intimate relationship of energy with matter, of our higher moral capacities and our lower primal nature, we can transform our ”self” by working with our own energy system, feeling state, and active imagination.

 The mind has the ability to direct energy into form by how and what we thinks about, coupled with strong emotions. Emotion is the chemistry of thought produced through imagined realities. As we think and form images in our mind, we stimulate our body to produce hormones of emotion, and vice versa. The emotions we’re stimulated with from outside sources, also act to control what we focus on and think about as the type of realities associated to the emotions. Thought and emotion are different aspects of the same reality, and are always complementary to each other, as one producing the other. Once acts to stimulate, awaken and give life to the other. Our emotional state always directly reflects the chemistry and biological functioning of the body in direct and immediate relationship with our thoughts and mental state. This is a scientific law, and is always true.

All transformation which involves healing by recognizing our own tendencies, habits, beliefs, and habitual emotional states, comes only through self-realization, knowledge and awareness about our true nature, and our ability to begin using our mind in a conscious and deliberate fashion to intentionally create ourselves. It’s through active use of our own mind, and our ability to choose what qualities we want to develop as a state, and our willingness to give up our current identity in favor of a more desirable one, that we can not only transform the patterning of our mind as our paradigm or interactive model, but in doing so, change our perception, how we interpret events to create our experience of them, and literally transform our physical condition to match our mental condition.

It’s no mystery to the medical world that all healing usually requires a behavioral change as a lifestyle modification, or by working directly with a person’s belief system and identity. All healing in fact, comes only by way of self-healing. We can change how we’re using our mind to direct our behavior and form our experience of reality, and how we identify with our own self-created experiences. We can only change the body, or transform an existing condition, through identifying and working with its emotional and psychological component. Healing our mind is the same as healing our energy, which heals the body to the exact equivalent.

Our attitude and the perception it forms creates how we act, and what kind of activities we engage in, that directly affect our health. The emotional states we dwell in and live out of come as the result of chemistry and regulation of our endocrine system, and what type of thoughts we engage in consistently. Our emotional states tend to run and control us, both in terms of how we think and form internal representations, and how we behave as a result, or what activities we consistently participate in. Thought, which creates a pattern as a reality, fueled by emotion as propulsion, produces all of our behavior and activities. To change one, you change the others simultaneously. They always exist in an intimate relationship with each other as being different components of the same vibration. The mental aspect is causal in nature, and can be used to produce or change the emotions we experience in response to our thoughts, and how we’re being, and what we’re doing as a result.

The body, as the vehicle for expression, can be (is being) operated by the mind which inhabits and animates it. Our mind shapes energy into realities by how we think and imagine, and the body brings our thoughts into physical manifestation as the outer expression of our inner thoughts. We first form inner realities through thinking, that alters the vibration of the body as an emotional response or equivalent to our thoughts that manifest our physical condition as our health, personality and identity, and our way of being in the world by the story we wrap ourselves around and act to naturally tell as the reality produced by our vibratory frequency.
