The Chakra System Provides us with a Model for Using our Mind to Heal our Body

The Chakra system of the subtle body gives us a “model for creating” from a dual perspective as the movement of energy that’s both descending as spirit into matter, and matter ascending back into spirit. The creative process works from both angles because it’s the continuous flow of the same thing. When energy as vibration is descending from a higher plane, it comes in a unified form that divides and propagates as aspects of itself that form stages of development as a kind of growth process of an idea becoming a material form and reality. There are no “individual or independent” operations slated to each chakra as many believe, but rather a unified idea that steadily takes on physical properties and becomes something specific as an actual material reality. It’s the system through which an idea manifests as an equivalent physical correspondence or analogy.

What originates as an archetype or “ideal” is a form of prototype or general template as more of a theme, which holds the infinite potential of that idea as a wave-form (crown chakra has a thousand petals), enters into the individual mind and body system, where a form of natural selection takes place that accesses certain aspects of potential that correlate with it, and through a series of interference patterns as a process of adaptation based on the unique relationship that thematic idea forms with the individual character that’s acting as a vehicle for it to come into an actual form of expression, it’s modified, and the wave is “collapsed” around one possibility (limitation is imposed), which is brought into expression to produce the reality as its physical form.

The crown chakra is where the idea, which has already penetrated and been absorbed and inducted into the mind as the subtle energy field that surrounds and in-forms the body, as a “whole idea” that contains all aspects required for creating in a unified manner, enters the body.  It’s received into the 3rd-Eye of the sixth chakra as an inspired vision or imagined reality (similar to a memory) that has both optical and audio properties (6th chakra is represented as two petals). It comes as an imagined thought that’s accompanied by an inner voice. As the voice speaks a vision is formed as the meaning of the words spoken as a material reality. This inner voice (5th chakra) and imagined reality becomes the basis of what we call “thought”, which when beheld and dwelled in, forms feelings as sensations as it descends into the heart center. These feeling sensations of the imagined idea act as a form of vibratory programming for the subconscious mind of the body, and is what “connects us” to that same type of reality in everything around us in the material world of formation.

       The potential reality as an imagined, sensory and life-like reality produces emotion as the chemistry of the body as it descends into the solar plexus, which adjusts the biological body to the same “state” (vibratory quality) as the idea. The emotions are produced as a reaction to our visual thoughts, and unlike the feelings of the heart that are felt both inside and out as a connection to the material world outside of us, emotions are felt with intensity within the body as a strong stimulation that’s arousing and brings the body into an active state in response to the thought. This strong arousal and pronounced activity within the body takes place as the emotion enters the sexual-generative center of the second chakra, which is creative in nature, and what produces action as behaviors of some form as it enters the root chakra, and acts to bring the idea into expression as an experience by producing an effect as the reality of the thought. Once an idea is acted on, it steadily manifests as not only our inner reality, but also our outer reality. This is how ideas become rooted in reality as the personal creation of those who serve as the vehicle and conduit for actualizing them.

Because this process begins in the brain, the point in the body where ideas are received in full sensory terms, then broken down and distributed to the body itself for manifesting, the brain is attributed as being what “generates” the ideas as a primal form of consciousness. Yet all material form only acts as a passive receptor and instrument for consciousness, which operates it by informing, instructing, and animating it. Consciousness, like everything else that emerges from it, is dual in nature as both a passive and active component. Matter is the passive aspect of consciousness that acts as a form of “shell” or dead form for spirit to inhabit and give life to as a “living being” with a personality and subconscious mind. So the body is the means through which creation takes place as the active expression of consciousness (the Soul).

This same process as an infinite flow of energy that forms a kind of “feedback loop”, which allows the soul to witness its own creation, takes place through a form of reverse engineering. In the ascending flow of energy from the lower to the higher mind, a behavior or action of some kind arouses and stimulates us with a strong emotion, which then produces a feeling sensation as a form of reflection that activates a memory as a visual and verbal idea that provides an “automatic pattern” for creating as a reality. In this orientation and movement, the emotion and feeling produce the imagined thought, instead of the imagined thought producing the emotion and behavior. One originates as a conscious and willful movement, the other originates as an unconscious and automatic movement. Both are equally creative in nature and serve as correspondences to each other because our thoughts are what create the programs as memory of the subconscious mind. These programs habituate us to emotions that keep us in an aroused state, forming the basis for what affects us and causes an automatic, knee-jerk reaction as an emotional charge that makes us go unconscious and act in an automatic, thoughtless fashion.

       All of our reactions, ultimately, come as the result of how we’ve consistently programmed ourselves over a period of time with our own thoughts that formed our memories as a product of our conditioning. Our memories are formed by how we interpreted events through emotional perceptions as the reality we formed around them based on what we told ourselves about them that gave them the meaning they have. All things only mean what we make them mean by the story we tell ourselves about them. This process of feelings that are received from the environment that act to prompt an emotion as an active arousal, which in turn produces an automatic behavior, is how the instinctual realm of the plant and animal kingdom operate. When we bypass the intellectual capacity as the ability to reason, discriminate, and form our own interpretations as a function of the conscious mind, and live instead out of emotions that form illusions as memories that produce automatic behaviors in us, we live in much the same manner as an animal out of a primarily unconscious state.

The intelligent capacities of the Higher, creative Mind, represented by the three upper chakras (voice, vision, idea, and will), has the ability to work through, direct, and ultimately program the lower, subconscious mind of the body, represented by the four lower chakras, all of which are physical in nature, and more specifically the lower three, with the fourth  heart chakra being what bridges and acts as a pathway between the higher and lower planes, and the inner and outer of the material plane. Information is received from the higher plane of archetypal ideas as original thought from the crown and head, forming a vertical motion of up and down, whereas information from the “same plane” (material plane), is received through the heart, and forms a horizontal , as a back and forth, inner and outer movement. When we only live out of our feelings and emotions, stimulated from outer events, others, or in response to thinking as memories of some form, we bypass the intellectual capacity and live out of an unconscious, auto-pilot state of being controlled and determined in much the same way a puppet is operated by a series of strings, or in a remote control fashion, with others constantly being in control of the remote.

        The model laid out as a creative process by the chakra system as a hierarchical structure, provides us with the key and method for employing to work in a conscious and deliberate manner with our own subconscious mind and body to alter and transform our physical body and reality. The subconscious mind doesn’t have the ability to generate and produce reality as an “original creation”, but relies instead on memory which it uses as the basis for creating more realities of the same nature and kind. A memory acts as a preformed pattern or theme that’s used as a template to produce fractal patterns of the same nature as a replication or consistent type of story that produces the same type of experiences over and over, varied only by the uniqueness of the circumstances, situations, and relationships being used to create them. It simply plays out the same ideas over and over in a habitual manner, and produces and maintains the condition of the body as its equivalent and of the same nature and condition.

Whatever story we tell ourselves about our self and life, we become in form. Our mental paradigm is what produces all of our perceptions, which is an interpretation that we use to create our experiences that then determines how we behave, and simply acts in all situations to generate more of it self. It’s only modified from its habitual tendencies through the introduction of an original idea, that’s delivered in its original state as an imagined reality and inner voice, that “gives it” a pre-made idea as a virtual memory that it can use in place of an actual memory to produce the reality of the idea by “becoming it” in body and actions.

In this same fashion, the subconscious of the body, often referred to as the heart, can be given direction on what and how to manifest based on visualization of the process desired as a reality and by talking to it, explaining the process and how it works, and how it’s going to benefit from it. A sense of pleasure and positive emotion needs to be connected to the idea as what the reality will naturally produce. Thought as an idea (replicates a memory) must be translated into the feeling and emotion that’s the equivalent of the idea because it’s what actually produces the behavior or motivation (arousal) of the subconscious. Emotion is the motivating force as the chemistry of the body that forms all of its biological processes. Emotion comes as the stimulation of the Endocrine glands – the master of which is the Pineal and Pituitary body that act together to regulate all others as a unified operation – that produce hormones as messengers that alter the “state of the body” and activate certain processes by turning some aspects on while turning others off, in much the same way DNA operates. It’s only through coherence of the brain and heart (conscious and subconscious) as an idea and its emotional equivalent that manifestation and transformation naturally takes place.

       A thought that’s not properly translated through a sensory reality that produces the emotion of the idea, doesn’t manifest because it doesn’t work to alter and regulate the chemistry of the body to produce the actions necessary. It’s only an idea imagined as a full sensory reality that’s “felt as being real”, that provides a process or operation for transformation as a form of instructions or direction that invoke an emotional response as altering and producing the physical equivalent as the production and distribution of hormones that transforms how the body regenerates itself. It produces the chemical messengers as the information and instructions necessary to alter DNA sequences and neuro-pathways that change how the body regenerates and performs.

While we tend think that what we call “reality” is something that exists separate and independent of us, the fact is reality results from our perception of it. How reality “appears to us”, what we see and comprehend and what we don’t see or fail to recognize all together, is based on our ability to perceive and conceive of it. While we also tend to believe that perception is a product of our brain or heart, in fact, we perceive with our whole being, with both our mind and full body as a unified state and cohesive system. Just as we think with our whole body, in which every organ of our body produces neurotransmitters, and performs different aspects of thinking and perceiving, we also perceive the outer world through the lens of the inner world. Whatever ideas we “program” ourselves (subconscious and self-conscious) with, shape our paradigm, which produces an equivalent and corresponding outer reality as its expression and personal creation. Every individual perceives the same objective reality in a unique, different, and individual way. It’s only by changing our mind and body through the introduction and development of new and original ideas that we reprogram our subconscious to be able to perceive those ideas as a natural part of our outer reality. By changing ourselves, our whole world changes accordingly.

Becoming Self-Aware: Learning to Observe Yourself

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

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

inner light1

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

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

universal

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

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

turned on

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

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

The Nature of Thoughts – “Do we Think them, or do they Think Us?”

molecules of brain
Thoughts are an interesting phenomenon when you really stop to become aware them. Most of us don’t really perceive having any real control over our thoughts, which tend to run through our mind in a habitual and automatic manner. We’re simply always thinking about something, and tend to think the same type of thoughts over and over in a repetitious and unconscious manner. In this sense it’s as if we are tuned into a frequency of those thoughts, and they are thinking for us, through us, as us. The “type” of thoughts that we are programmed with (think about routinely), we usually pick-up from our environment through various forms of suggestion that activate memory of some sort as imagined thought processes that work “through” us, and on us, to create us. We become what we think about. This process takes place largely at a purely unconscious level, not only in the sense that we’re typically unaware of our own thoughts (in the real sense) but more importantly, that we are unaware of the fact that we can actually direct our thoughts and intentionally think about certain things in certain ways, at will.

 
In meditation, the initial stage is going within, shutting out the outside world, relaxing the body (memory as unconscious programs are held in the body as tension), and calming our mind. What we usually find is that we’re usually in the process of a constant stream of thoughts, most of which are random in the sense that we go from one thing to another in a sporadic fashion, and a large percentage of our thoughts are meaningless in the ultimate sense because they’re a scene from a movie we watched, lyrics to a song, something somebody said or did to us, and we jump around from topic to topic almost like a form of mental anxiety or hyperactivity that fails to concentrate or think deeply on any one subject or idea, but instead skims the surface as a shallow reflection that’s based on surface appearances or emotional charges. In this we can “observe” our thoughts without allowing any of them to take hold by fixating our mind on them and diverting into a tangent as a mini thought-process, and instead simply notice what they are as they remain in a free-flow state. Instead of entering into the thoughts themselves forming a subjective perspective of being in them having them as an experience, we stand back, remain detached and form an objective perspective and imagine them as a stream moving by in front of us and just observe them while letting them continue to flow.

fibanaci man
Once you’re able to do this, you can realize that you actually have the ability to choose what you think about, focus your mind, and concentrate on a subject or idea penetrating it causing deeper and deeper realizations around it. When we concentrate on ideas, and start by thinking about them in terms of what we currently know about them, it prompts a process that’s like a continuous form of growth or systematic unfolding, that begins revealing new aspects of the idea that we didn’t know before, bringing insight into it as knowledge about it. In this way we literally become receptive of knowledge. Knowledge is revealed to us through a form of observation (witnessing faculty) that’s transmitted and received through entering into the flow of the idea, and becoming one with it. By focusing our mind on it, we enter into rapport with it, and it comes “through us” as a form of visual transmission as a tuning device. We tune into the idea as a form of wave-length, enter into the flow of it through concentration, and we become “it” in thought as a direct experience of it.

 
Our mind is our most powerful means of learning through direct experience, not only in the outer sense of having a physical experience, but also in the inner sense of becoming a receiver for information by tuning into it with a sense of curiosity or love for it that makes us a magnet for it. Intelligence as information or ideas exists in the energetic realm as pure vibratory frequency that is tuned into by holding an idea of that frequency in our mind while concentrating deeply on it. Our attention is a stimulating and antagonistic force that not only directs life force energy into whatever we’re thinking about, animating it and bringing it to life inside of us, but it also animates vibratory patterns (ideas) that are of the energetic realm that exists in a constant state of becoming.

cosmic sunset
The spiritual realm is unformed because it remains alive and in an evolutionary flow of constant transformation through endless variations of itself based on the adaptations it undergoes in relationships that it forms with everything else, which modifies and reformulates it in a moment by moment manner. Ideas (archetypes) that exist as laws (form and function) in the spiritual (energetic) realm of primordial intelligence remain in a constant evolutionary flow of becoming endless versions of itself. Unlike the material realm of death where things become solid and fixed into stagnate forms that either cease evolving and begin decaying, or evolve in a painfully slow manner, the spiritual realm remains alive and always growing into something greater and more complex through the dynamic nature of the relationships as variables it forms with life as a whole. The spiritual realm exists in a state of pure potential as a wave-form that contains billion of potential forms as possibilities for creating one idea as a thematic reality that personalizes a universal theme through a specialized application. The wave is collapsed into a particle through selection (fixation) forming one possibility out of an infinite number based on the channel (individual mind) it’s drawn into and used to create a personal and individualized version of the same idea within the context of their life as a whole.

 
When we “tune into” the spiritual realm of living forms, and we concentrate on an idea or law (dynamic idea), not holding it to one form as our belief about it, but rather detaching from our opinions and viewing it from an objective perspective of pure observation, it dances before us in a shimmering glow of elegant movement that reveals its hidden aspects and intimate secrets buried deep within its nature that elicit a state of wonder and awe in us as we behold it in its simple yet profound magnificence. Its beauty alone fills us with an overwhelming feeling of love and positive regard that warrants a state of pure devotion. It shows itself to us by entertaining us with a sense of fascination that arouses every aspect of our being while hypnotizing us with its beauty, and we draw it into us, becoming pregnant with it. In this way, we conceive of and act as the channel that gives birth to an idea as a co-creation by how we express that idea in our life and using it to create ourselves by way of God to become “godlike” as the channel through which higher vibration moves freely without being obscured and corrupted.

 
All of life is a form of meditation as a concentration of certain type of thoughts that tune us to the vibration of those thoughts making us a transmitter and receiver for more of the same type of thoughts. We become what we think and create our life as an expression of our thoughts. Our thoughts reveal our vibratory frequency as our quality of consciousness that expresses by creating the reality of our thoughts as experiences of ourselves in the outer world that is equivalent to our inner world. Our inner world of thoughts that form our imaginings as the experience of our thoughts as a reality, are how we “request” those experiences by using the creative power of our imagination to form them as a thematic template or vibratory patterning that becomes our perceptual lens and method of creating experience by how we interpret the outer world to mean the same thing as our inner world. What we focus on and think about by telling a story out of it, we act to create by perceiving its equivalent in the outer world while telling the same type of story about it, which creates our experience of it.

 

The only question . . . is whether or not we’re aware of what we’re doing, or, are we doing it unconsciously by thinking that our thoughts are actually objective in nature rather than subjective, and that we have no direct control over our thoughts and our thoughts are actually thinking us . . .

Spiritual Healing – “Life Crisis serves to Transforms Us”

bit by bit

When we ask the question “what is spiritual healing”, while all spiritual ideas are dynamic and multi-dimensional (have layered meaning), we would have to first begin by bringing definition to the terms being used as ideas that imply the processes involved in working intentionally with them through awareness. Human beings are basically what we call 3-part beings, consisting of body, soul, and spirit. These three aspects are always working in harmony with each other as our mind-body system. Our spiritual essence is equivalent to our mind, our body to our habits and behaviors, and our soul to the combination of the two as the “experiences” they create in unison.

The spirit, which is equivalent to the mind, is largely our mental-thought oriented self which is a natural expression of our paradigm (model), while our soul is comprised of accumulated memory of our life experiences as a form of life-story or biography that we’re always in the process of telling by how we live our life. While these three aspects are always expressing as one, our spiritual aspect is causal as the mental paradigm we live out of, that’s a form of vibratory frequency as a biological tuning device that projects (puts off) and attracts (draws into itself) more thoughts of the same nature that are compliant (of the same frequency) with its paradigm (model of the world). Our mind is the invisible energy field that surrounds and permeates our body, that acts as a filtering mechanism for conceiving in the outer environment what matches it as thoughts and ideas that enter into it as a form of suggestion through resonance and sympathetic induction, which we experience as our own natural thought processes. We draw into us, become one with and integrate whatever is of the same vibration as we are around us, and as a result, undergo a constant form of subliminal transformation that’s subtle and gradual, creating variations that are based out of the same vibration as a life theme. We attract and act as a receiver for whatever elements around us that can be used to structure the same type of reality as a thematic story that gives us a consistent experience of our outer life as the reflection or direct correspondence to our inner life.

The soul, which acts as the medium that bonds the mind to the body and shares properties of both (the mind and the body), links ideas as feelings to the body through emotions that are associated to memories. The idea as a thought enters our mind, and is shaped by astral light in the imagination into a living reality as an adaptation of a universal idea (archetype) that’s used to form a personalized experience as a variation. The universal idea is modified by the body and personality, and the soul as a mental paradigm built up out of accumulated memory that’s emotionally based and acquired through all factors involved, such as: the individual, their maturity and level of consciousness, the conditions they exist within, their circumstances, situation, culture, era, and so on, that modifies the original idea as a kind of template into a personal experience. The idea as a feeling (vibration) forms a series of thoughts that are transmitted from the higher or universal mind and is receiver by the soul as the lower mind, where it stimulates (awakens) an emotion and a memory of the same nature in the soul-body (memory that’s unified) as a natural response to it, that are used to further modify the correlating idea into an experience within our current reality. This idea as a thought-form, matched with its equivalent emotion and memory, formed in the imagination as a possible reality or tangible concept, acts as a program or template for the body-consciousness to act out through the behavior the reality implies, as its physical (actual) expression.

ethereal body

Subtle Energy of the Mind
One way we can think of this is that the idea as it originates in the Universal Mind exists in a waveform of pure potential as literally billions of possible variations of a single idea or pattern, modified by how it’s adapted through the channel (person or body) it expresses through. Though it forms a variation, it’s still an expression of the same basic idea as an analogous correspondence. When it’s received by a local-individual mind, a form of selection takes place, and only one possibility out of billions becomes expressed as a personalized version of the greater idea.

Whereas in modern society we’ve been taught to dissociate the mind from the body, and many people don’t even have a clear concept of what the soul actually is, we associate the idea of healing with the ailments and manifestations of the body, and take the approach of healing the body by purely physical means. By repairing it, changing it’s chemistry through drugs, replacing parts with synthetic fabrications or transplants, often, without ever identifying or addressing the actual cause as a paradigm (structured pattern) of the mind, driven by emotion and beliefs of some sort that create behaviors which manifest as illness and disease in the body. Because we don’t realize that energy as consciousness manifests consistently through vibratory patterning, and that all physical conditions have a psychosomatic component as karma (memory) of some sort, we never heal at the emotional and mental levels, and the same pattern simply manifests in a new way, or the same disease remains active and is controlled instead by drug therapies that simply act to manage the symptoms. This tends to keep us hopelessly in the realm of affect, looking only for “causes” that are also purely physical in nature.

Feelings are Vibrations with Patterns Inherent in them

To heal at the soul-spirit level, is to become aware of whatever is working in your life at the subconscious level. It’s to gain self-awareness by realizing what moods and emotional states you embody and live out of, what type of thoughts you tend to think on a regular basis, what memories you use to tell your life story out of, and what type of internal realities you create as a result. These internal realities, as giving form to thoughts, infusing them with emotions that motivate action of some sort that are connected to them that shapes them into thematic realities that are offspring of the memories which acts as an organizing or composing mechanism, structuring our current reality into the same idea by how we perceive and interpret it, that forms life-themes. These themes are based on the meaning we give things, which shapes the story we tell about them. The story we tell means something about us, about other people, and about the way the world is. We are always creating 3-levels of reality simultaneously through the story we tell ourselves “about” things.

The energy we hold and are comprised of, that forms our thoughts, emotions and internal realities, are also felt as distinct feeling sensations in our body. These feelings have distinct qualities to them, and are associated to our inner energy system known as the chakras. Each chakra, located at different parts of the body, are associated with our major organs and endocrine glands, which effect natural processes of the body thru emotional states that are regulatory in nature. Our emotions, which are a response to our own thoughts or stimulus in our environment, arise in us as the hormones secreted through our endocrine glands that instantly alter our state by producing body chemistry. Our emotions are the fluid-like connection with the astral or instinctual plane that connects us with our surroundings, other people, animals, and all of Nature. The astral / instinctual fields of the physical realm of emotions have “patterns” inherent in them as memory or thought-forms that motivate behavior and produce realities as the expression of the emotion. Where ever we experience and hold these emotions in our body, effects the organs and processes associated with that part of the body, and over-time, manifest in some way, producing distinct symptoms, which give us a warning to a condition that’s forming in us.

Behaviors of all kinds are largely automatic in nature, habitual and predominately emotionally driven. Often, the emotions we engage in produce behaviors as their expression or as a means of coping somehow, that cause us to engage in activities that directly produce the illness and disease that we become afflicted with. Even when we know they’re “not good for us”, or causing problems of some sort, we have trouble giving them up because we associate pleasure and comfort of some sort with them. Because of our own mental and emotional ways of forming internal representations of things, we create a sense of pleasure with the very thing we need to give up, while creating a feeling of deprivation and suffering around the idea of quitting that behavior and replacing it with another behavior. Often, choosing to take the risk of known consequences, and act in a round-about way to commit a slow form of suicide.

The Healing Power of Awareness
Spiritual healing is basically bringing what is unconscious in yourself, into full awareness, where you can see your own tendencies as behavioral dynamics. You can begin observing your own mind, and in doing so recognize your own thoughts, feelings, and emotions, what you tend to focus on and imagine as normal everyday thoughts, and what you tell yourself about your own imaginings that give meaning to your life. The meaning you give things acts to shape you, others, and your perception of the world by way of the same story as a theme of some sort. This theme acts as a template for superimposing over the external environment in order to reshape it into your story by how you interpret it to make it mean something. Meaning is a function of our higher, creative mind. Things only mean what we say they mean.

Any unconscious tendencies as life-patterns (karma) or behavioral dynamics, are projected onto others and our environment, forming the perceptual lens we look through and what we see that matches it, that we then form a strong reaction to (resonance), that causes us to go unconscious (no longer present in the objective sense), accessing a memory (of the past) that’s associated with the emotion we’re experiencing (in the present), that becomes the basis for creating an illusion in place of objective reality, where we engage automatically, without awareness of what we’re actually doing through a reactive state. This reaction, recreates the same type of experience in the present of the memory from the past.

The emotional memory has a behavioral dynamic in it as a drama of some sort which acts as the unifying aspect that’s acted out with others who share the same type of illusion and participate fully by taking on complementary roles in acting it out, which is how we can recognize our own tendencies, by indulging in emotional reactions that always create the same type of experiences, that’s formed by a theme of some sort. These themes are ideas such as; not being loved or wanted, not being good enough, betrayal, abandonment, being deceived, rejected, and so on. Though all of humanity shares the same basic themes, which is how we act them out together, each new variation of a theme is produced by “twists in the plot” that comes about through unique combinations based on the individuals or groups involved and what situations or circumstances they’re being acted out in.

Self-Realization
Once we can learn to self-reflect and through introspection observe our own emotions, triggers, and habitual thoughts, and can begin recognizing the story we’re always in the process of telling of selves, we can “see” the “illusion” we’re living out of as an emotional reaction that first acts to produce, then maintain the illusion. Once we can “see” in ourselves what’s acting to control and jerk us around in our environment, and recognize the themes we live out of, just the awareness itself loosens the grip it holds on us. By “seeing” it, we separate from it, and can distinguish it as a false reality that we made up in our mind as a means of trying to make sense of something, or as a dynamic we became conditioned to and so tend to act it out through triggers of some sort without awareness of what we’re doing or why we’re exactly doing it. Through this self-recognition in our own lives, realizing our unconscious tendencies, they no longer cause us to go unconscious in response to them, and by remaining conscious, we not only fail to see (or react) them anymore, but realize we have a choice, and can act in a whole new way to the same stimulus, and produce a whole new type of experience as a result.

We know we’ve healed from an unconscious tendency because what used to cause a strong reaction in us, no longer bothers us. The same stimulus, no longer stimulates a reaction in us. We remain neutral and unaffected in its presence. The emotions being expressed in a situation no longer enter into us and activate that same emotion in us. Because we shift our vibration through self-awareness and the realization that it brings, we no longer attract “into us” the thoughts of the false reality, and because we’ve learned the lesson the illusion was teaching us, we no longer attract (react to) the people necessary to keep acting it out and reproducing the same type of experiences. In this way, we have resolved karma by no longer creating our life out of emotional memories as illusions, and break the pattern that bound us, freeing us to act out a new pattern that will act to tell a new type of story with our life. In this, we will act to attract new thoughts that produce new feelings that form inner imaginings that turn them into a template for expressing as a channel of expression that brings the inner reality into the outer reality as an analogous experience.

In this way we have healed at the spiritual level of the soul, which is memory based, by tuning ourselves to a higher vibration, that expresses as a new story, told with new types of people. We forget about the old thoughts, because they’re no longer naturally produced by our new state. We no longer tune into, access and act as a receiver for them. All memory is state based. When we are fluently involved in an experience, then our state changes, we move into a new experience, and we can no longer remember the old experience, much like waking from a dream, and as you move from a sleeping state to an awakened one, you steadily lose the memory of your dream, and what you do retain as residue gradually fades throughout the day. You know you’ve healed when you forget. When thoughts of it no longer comes to mind, and even when reminded and trying to recapture the memory, it feels detached, distant and no longer apart of us. As if we are seeing the memory as someone else’s life, a movie that we know intimately, but not as being in the experience itself, but as watching it like a movie from a detached position.
