Mental, Emotional, and Physical Purification – The Prerequisite for Transcending to Higher Forms of Consciousness

The definition for the purification process is to remove toxins, pollutants, and contaminates, returning it to an original state of purity. It’s the process of making something spiritually or ceremonially “clean”. Free from anything that debases, pollutes, adulterates, degrades, or contaminates it. Clean of all “foreign” elements. In the spiritual sense it means freeing the soul from sin and guilt, which means errors in perception and actions, and doing things that you feel or know are wrong or bad somehow. It comes as a form of restoration of grace that redeems our soul and promotes our salvation. It’s removing from our mind and body anything that defiles, desecrates and makes us profane, that violates and corrupts, or that perverts and tarnishes us in some way. It’s cleansing ourselves of all forms of negativity that act to reduce us somehow in terms of our morality. It comes through our ability to resist temptation of physical pleasures and impulses that will cause us to “acquire” qualities that will digress us to a lower, animal-like nature.

The goal of undergoing the process of self-purification is to produce a state fit for a specific purpose that requires us to meet certain standards. The higher soul, which is non-material and eternal in nature, is “unchangeable” because it’s pure in nature and isn’t influenced or affected by material elements. It doesn’t blend or mix with anything of a different nature. The human soul and the body form a relationship as an amalgamation where they blend with each other and take on the same state, qualities, characteristics, and tendencies. By removing all of the negative influences that have served to mask our true nature and corrupt our consciousness with passions and desires that render us “animal-like” (unconscious), we return to our essential self as being “in this world but not of it”. We can free ourselves of all material passions and addictions and the illusions they create that keep us in a constant state of bondage as longing for meaningful experiences, craving physical pleasure, wanting material possessions, and suffering when our cravings aren’t met somehow.

In order to understand the true process of self-purification from a soul level, we have to look objectively at the nature of desire, lust, connection and the power of the magnetic forces of the material plane that we experience as emotion. Whatever we feel a connection to, we have a desire and longing for. We think about it naturally and on a regular bases, gravitate towards it by always seeking it out somehow, wondering about it, and dream about what it will be like when we unite with it, experience it and become “one with it”. All of which tunes us to the same vibration and “magnetizes us” to it. Whatever image or idea we hold in the mind as a mental impression that we develop into a vivid reality as a possible experience of it, we align ourselves with and alter our vibration to match it. This is the most basic law, the Law of Vibration as resonating with something that we unconsciously seek out and “enter into” as the experience of it from “within it”, that acts to modify our mind through the incorporation of it as a memory of some form, causing us to vibrate at the same frequency. We’re always calibrating ourselves vibrationally by what we think about and imagine as a reality, and what we actively participate in.

Whatever we willingly become one with in mind and emotion (chemically), we become the “same as” in terms of frequency, and it becomes a part of our normal thoughts and what we associate with that keeps our body tuned to the emotional chemistry of the thought, which forms a gravitational field between the imaginary idea within us and that same idea outside of us. As we think and imagine, we feel and sense, and we provide our subconscious mind with a pattern as a virtual memory to use to not only produce our physical expression and behaviors to be of the same nature, but to draw and direct our attention to that same idea all around us. It becomes like a beacon of sorts that stands out when we naturally scan the environment by making it take on an enhanced quality that seems more vivid and intimate than other ideas that we don’t think about or entertain much. In this way, through the very nature of our thoughts and what we choose to “let into” our mind and entertain by contemplating and give our attention to on a regular basis, we align ourselves to that idea as a mental and emotional state, and it becomes a part of “us” as an inherent and regular part of our reality.

Once a compelling mental image or strong emotional event is allowed to penetrate and inhabit our mind, it can become a permanent thought as our ability to reference it in association with something else. It becomes a memory that populates our thoughts with more of the same type of thoughts. As we encounter other ideas of a similar nature, it pops into our mind and plays out as a means of creating our experience of the present based on how we associate it with the past. While there are many things we can’t help seeing, witnessing, or becoming a part of because they’re a natural part of our immediate and everyday reality, we can and do make constant conscious decisions as to what we intentionally or willingly engage in and give our concentrated attention to, and “let into our mind”, and allowing it to “take hold” by continuing to think about it. As we engage in the reality of the thought, forming it into an experience, we integrate it into our mind as a virtual memory that’s used just like a real memory to create us to be of the same nature, and it becomes a possibility for an actual experience. We “tune ourselves” to it through the very act of thinking about it as a sensory reality that we’re in the process of experiencing.

Thought and emotion are always intimately connected as one produces and gives rise to the other and are of the “same nature”, because thought produces and idea as an imagined reality experienced in sensory terms as feeling sensations that produce emotion as the physical chemistry of that reality. Emotions, being of a material nature, produced by sensory stimulus that’s produced in response to thought, is the “language of the material world” that’s always being communicated through a natural form of energetic transmission that flows freely through the atmosphere (astral plane) in which our body acts as a receiver for. Just as thought provokes the emotion associated to the thought in the individual mind, emotion also provokes thought that produces the reality of the emotion in the imagination. Emotions exist as more of an “archetypal theme” designed to produce automatic, unconscious behaviors, and are what drive the instinctual plane of the animal kingdom, of which our body is a kin to.

All emotion serves to automatically produce certain types of reality by first altering the chemistry of our body through energetic stimulus that modifies our “state of mind” (energy field) accordingly through resonance, and utilizes our will by controlling our thoughts to produce the “type of reality” that serves to naturally express and produce more of the same emotion. So while the thoughts themselves as an imagined reality may vary from individual to individual, all being stimulated with the same emotion, the type of reality as a “theme” and the behavior it automatically produces will be the same (very similar). Emotions, when left unchecked, render us unconscious because they take control of our physiology and run our mind, controlling and determining how we perceive and behave, and what type of dynamics we naturally engage in.

We are literally being “given our thoughts” as mental impressions by other people that we communicate with, and various forms of media that bombard us with constant ideas as videos, movies, advertisements, propaganda, articles, sayings, pictures, music, and so on, much of which we readily engage in while in a passive state of non-resistance (being entertained by it), or through sensationalism of some form being used as an emotional hook by how it’s presented, that we feel magnetically drawn to, or have simply been trained to give our mind over to anything that’s out there vying for our attention. The whole quest of culture and society is to take control of our will by introducing information as sensationalized ideas that we willingly take in an incorporate into our mental paradigm and therefore act as a natural channel for it by participating in it in a fully cooperative manner. Anything that becomes a part of our everyday reality we accept as normal, build it into our experience in a way that makes sense to us, and fail almost completely to recognize as a program that we’re being given and systematically conditioned to.

Whatever we take in from our environment unsuspectingly and without careful analysis or discretion, or any form of actual awareness as to what it is, what it means, and how will affect us, conditions us as a primary form of hypnosis. We’re literally given our thoughts in a fully interpreted manner as the visual reality and how we’re supposed to feel about that reality. We’re told what that reality will mean in terms of benefiting from it if we accept it as a natural part of us and lend our will to participate in creating by “becoming it” in mind, emotion, and actions. We’re always “becoming” by what we combine ourselves with, associate with, and create ourselves by way of. As we think, imagine, feel, emote, and do, we sense ourselves “as”, and it shapes us by way of becoming the same as it.

To purify the mind and emotions is to become aware of this natural process and begin working by way of it in a conscious and intentional manner. This means to first become aware of your own habits, what you expose yourself to and participate in without full awareness of what you’re doing as more of a habit or addiction, what relationships you maintain and how they influence and affect you, and what environments and situations you place yourself in as a part of your daily routine. It comes through an awareness of how you’re acting “on yourself” to willingly condition yourself to a form of mass brainwashing as social entertainment and information delivered through media that all of society is unknowingly and eagerly participating in. It begins by choosing to wake up and become aware, then exercising your creative power to consciously choose and willingly act out those choices to begin directing and determining your own mind and behaviors.

The minute you choose to take back censorship of your own mind and body, no longer created by others and society, and immediate question arises, and that is “who am I?” Who and how do I want to be? If I’m going to intentionally create myself and govern my own thoughts and emotions, what kind of thoughts and emotions do I want to have? It brings us face-to-face with the reality of who we are and the tremendous responsibility of consciously creating ourselves. Something many go their whole life without ever realizing. To choose to be conscious and fully aware in your everyday life as the initial step into the process of self-creation brings with it a great deal of responsibility and accountability, and can be very disruptive to your current life. Once we begin becoming fully conscious in what was previously unconscious processes that were forming us by the will of others, and we begin looking at habitual behaviors, routines, and activities that we engage in without direct awareness of what was actually happening, we can hit a moment of crisis that can seem overwhelming because we realize we’ve been living our entire life out of a conditioned state that lacked any actual form of “self-awareness”. We often don’t know where to begin because we see so many things that need to be changed that no longer engaging in them impulsively and sporadically would cause mayhem.

This is because the way we change behaviors and activities isn’t necessarily by addressing and working with the behaviors themselves, but rather by recognizing and working directly with the “state of mind” out of which they naturally arise as expressions and natural behaviors. All thought and emotion that form the basis and motivate our behavior arise naturally out of our state of mind as our paradigm, or attitude, beliefs, values, preferences, decisions, memories, and so on, as a form of by product. By changing our values and beliefs, we naturally change all of our behaviors that result from them. We have to change how we look at something and how we interpret it through a new awareness of it in order to change how we naturally exist in relationship with it and how we interact with it as a result. Once we change our perception of something, all behaviors that resulted from it change automatically. When we habitually engage in the activities that resulted from the old perception, we become very aware of it and it no longer captivates us, we can’t stay with it, or, it no longer seems interesting. Its magnetic quality subsides and dissipates, and we forget about it.

Once we choose to be aware in areas and ways we were previously unaware, or had a different awareness around, we can begin consciously choosing what we expose ourselves to and what we don’t. We can decide what activities to participate in and which ones not to. Which relationships we continue to maintain, and which ones we let go of. We can provide ourselves with new information of a desirable nature that will grow us in ways we want to be grown. We can begin participating in new kinds of activities that bring us new kinds of experiences that are more in alignment with who we are and what we stand for. We can disconnect from the mindless activities of society that’s asleep and being given their thoughts and emotions, and we can begin thinking for ourselves and engaging in a form of constant study that causes us to think in new ways, imagine new possibilities, and feel in ways that will foster our growth to a positive means.

Perhaps the most important thing that waking up within your own life and becoming aware brings about is becoming aware of your “self”. Who you are as a soul, and learning how to take responsibility for you own creation through intentional use of your ability to realize, think for yourself, decide, and act out your decisions creating your reality, experiences, and self by way of your ability to think in original ways. By being able to consciously direct ourselves out of our conditioned and habitual mindset, we can take back control of our own destiny and guide ourselves down a deliberate evolutionary path of self-discovery and self-creation.

Self-Purification and Cultivating Our Higher Nature

As we go through life, we’re always “becoming” through a process of amalgamation, where we enter into relationship with everyone and everything around us, blending with them energetically, taking on their compatible attributes and transforming our nature by using them to express and create experiences that we then relate to and identify with. As we blend with others energetically, we take on the same qualities they have as a way of being that ultimately serves to shape our character based on how we express them. All relationships are energetic interactions of the mind and soul where we absorb and integrate whatever is of a similar nature to us, while ignoring and deflecting what’s not of the same nature. As we blend with “like” (polarized) qualities in another, we become “like them” and they become like us. We absorb complementary qualities through resonance and sympathetic induction where we take on their vibration and it acts to modify ours in a corresponding manner. The more we actively express certain qualities, the more natural they become to us, and they serve to gradually modify our vibration as we begin vibrating in harmony with them. Whatever we’re routinely exposed to, live in near proximity of, and readily take in without discrimination, we absorb into our subconscious mind where we build it into a well-defined reality in our imagination by continuing to think about it, and begin using it as the means for experiencing ourselves.

Whatever we willingly allow, participate in, and cooperate with, we become like. We utilize our will through our ability to choose by relating or contrasting, gaining an awareness of how we feel in relation to others or situations, where we either agree and step into it willingly, or we resist, decline, and move away from it.  When we develop an awareness of consciousness as qualities that form characteristics as “ways of being”, we can become aware of how we’re always choosing our methods of self-development through the relationships we maintain and who we associate with on a regular basis. Through self-awareness we can learn how to manage ourselves using our will and the ability to choose. By making decisions that we implement in a willful manner, we determine what we allow in and what we don’t. We can consciously choose what we willingly absorb and become like in nature, and what we resist and therefore prevent from entering into us, and becoming a part of us.

Whenever we enter into a relationship with someone or something (person, situation, activity, set of circumstances) we should maintain a subtle awareness of how we’re either contrasting or relating, and how we’re feeling as a result of the interaction. We should always be asking ourselves “what is the consciousness I’m experiencing, and in what way is it influencing me”? If I take on the same consciousness and allow it to express through me, who and how will I become? As I form a sense of myself “being this way” (embodying that way of being) how does it feel? As I sense myself this way, how do I feel about myself?

We all have what we call “shadow aspects” that are qualities that we inherently possess that we deny having, have repressed in some manner because we were made to feel bad about them or couldn’t find appropriate expression for them, or that we built an illusion around by telling ourselves a story about it that makes it seem different from what it actually is. Like all unconscious tendencies, we’re always projecting them outward and using them to shape our outer environment as our mind’s way of allowing us to “see what they are”, and we not only notice and react to them in others, but we gravitate towards them and naturally enter into in relationship with them. Just as we attract to people and situations that we enjoy and find gratifying, we’re also attract to and towards the type of people and things we despise, are irritated by, and find repulsive for some reason. A “reaction” of any kind to something outside of us, good or bad, is happening because we have that same quality within us as a hidden aspect that we remain primarily unaware of and deny the fact that we have the same quality. All qualities are polar or dual in nature (electromagnetic), and serve as complementary aspects needed to create a joint experience of the shared quality as an interaction. We’re always attracted to those who play the opposite role in the same dynamic.

We create out of the dynamics of our conditioning to either be the same or be the opposite. Either way, the relationship as contrasting and relating to the same pattern as a dynamic theme, forms the outward expression of chosen aspects and the inward, hidden life of the ones that are not consciously chosen, but repressed and held inside instead. The ones we rebel and retaliate against as a way of shaping ourselves, becomes disowned aspects that we deny having, even though we have shaped ourselves in relationship with them, and we continue to attract and end up in relationship with our shadow aspects as a way of maintaining our “sense of self” by continuing to contrast and retaliate against them. Whatever dynamic we’ve shaped ourselves out of as a relationship and way of interacting, we maintain, because without it, we don’t know who we are or how to “be”. We need to be in relationship with the same type of people in order to play out the dynamic we’ve built our identity around.

This type of energetic, subconscious interaction is going on at the unconscious level all the time where we’re doing it naturally and automatically without actual awareness of what we’re doing and why. When we become aware of and realize the reality of it, we then have a choice as to whether or not we need to keep acting it out by allowing or resisting it, while intentionally choosing how we’re going to be instead. As long as we are still getting our “identity from others”, and we feel the need for others to show us who we are, we maintain relationships that are of the same nature that we were conditioned with.

Once we become aware of our own unconscious tendencies, and begin sensing our energetic nature as consciousness itself, we can get a sense of who we really are in terms of our true nature, and begin drawing on our inner power as a means of creating ourselves in our everyday life. We move from an “other” orientation to a “self” orientation. As we sense ourselves in every situation we begin realizing that we always have a choice as to whether or not we’re going to remain unconscious and unaware in our life, and be determined by others, or if we’re going to choose instead to remain awake, aware and able in every moment to choose who and how we’re going to be. At first, this may require a willful effort, but once our center of gravity changes, our whole mind-set changes, and we simply lose interest in things that use to grip us. We no longer react or feel chemistry of some kind with the same type of people and situations. And we simply lose interest and leave those relationships.

When we become awake and conscious, we realize we’re always filtering ideas through our true nature, and deciding which ones we blend with, allow into our mind, and allow to take hold by thinking about them and forming them into internal realities, which become the templates and pathways for our outer expression. As we express these same qualities outwardly by becoming a channel for them, we sense ourselves “as them”, experience ourselves in that way, becoming associated with it by forming a memory of it, and it becomes a permanent part of us. We build our identity out of the accumulated experiences we have based on the qualities that make up our character that we consistently use to self-express and self-create.

Whatever we subject ourselves to, enter into and maintain relationships with, or associate with on a regular basis, we allow to influence us by absorbing and integrating their consciousness which acts to transform and evolve us to be of the same nature. We become like whatever we’re around and interact with. Transformation in the most basic sense is evolution by absorbing (resonating), assimilating (harmonizing) and becoming like our outer environment. We’re always forming equilibrium with our environment as a harmonious balance between the inner self and the outer world. We’re not fixed static beings, we’re constantly in the process of exchanging, absorbing, integrating, and discharging energy with everything around us, as a natural bio-evolutionary process.

To purify ourselves is to not only use dietary means as both nutritive substance and morality, but also to purify our intentions, emotions, and psychological states as well. It’s becoming aware of how we’re being infected, contaminated, and corrupted with the consciousness of everything we willingly engage in and choose to do, what we end up around, or what we intentionally place ourselves in. Once we become constantly aware of how we’re being influenced in any given situation, and we learn how to “sense it” as a “way of being and thinking”, we can begin using our creative power of choice and will in an intentional manner. We can begin censoring what we allow to take hold in us, and what we don’t, who and what we associate with, and who and what we don’t. Through the awareness of the energetic nature of things as qualities of consciousness that we’re always interacting with and absorbing into our mind and taking on, we can consciously choose and willfully become self-determined and truly responsible for who we are. We can learn how to intentionally regulate and direct our own thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. We can decide what to willingly participate in and cooperate in co-creating, and learn how to pick and choose who and what we associate with and what activities we engage in.

Entertainment – The Passive and Receptive Mind

Our mind operates according to different modes of passive and receptive, and active and projective, as the natural activity of the subconscious and self-conscious mind. The self-conscious, “aware” aspect has the ability to censor, judge, evaluate and filter all outward incoming information, and decide what to let in or resist and keep out. Whenever we’re actively being challenged, we’re in an active and projective mind where we evaluate and interpret everything and exercise our ability to resist it. Whenever we switch over to a mode of being entertained, where we’re not being challenged in any way and don’t need to defend, we enter into a passive and receptive mode, where we allow ideas and sensory realities to come into our mind, take hold and form a whole inner sensory reality that ultimately becomes a form of memory. Long after we’ve seen a movie that elicited a strong emotional impact, we continue to think about it periodically for years, maybe even throughout our lifetime. Similar ideas in our everyday environment cause a chain-of-association and we recall parts of the movie just like a memory. It literally becomes a “part of us” as part of our thinking and remembering. As we think and imagine we become by way of those thoughts, and they literally act to shape us at the purely unconscious level. They become a natural part of our subconscious memories just like real experiences do.

Whatever we form as a memory, as a reality that’s a part of our energetic make-up as our vibratory frequency, we not only perceive in our environment, but we act it out unconsciously by expressing it outwardly, creating our self by way of it. Whatever we form internally as an imagined reality (reviewing as a memory), becomes the perceptual lens we look through to see and interact with the same consciousness as an idea in the world around us, and we form a kind of gravitational field that connects us to by resonating with it. Whatever we think about and imagine repeatedly, we “tune” ourselves to that vibration and begin resonating with it outwardly. We begin stimulating it, interacting with it, and absorbing it, and through a repetitive accumulative process we steadily transform ourselves to be like it. As we think and imagine, we relate and “sense ourselves” through the reality of our thoughts, and we begin identifying with them. We typically identify with certain types of ideas, stories, themes, characters, personalities, issues and challenges, and so we always like “those type of movies” or “that type of character”. And by relating to them, and unconsciously initiating them, we shape ourselves to be “like them”.

Purifying Ourselves

To purify ourselves as a conscious and intentional act, is to become aware of this energetic process, gain a firm idea of who we really are and how we want to be, and intentionally select what we engage in, expose ourselves to, associate with, and what type of relationships we form and maintain between the outer and inner. Between our self and our self in another. We form an ideal of ourselves as the embodiment of our best qualities and character traits, and we intentionally and deliberately direct all our activities towards that means. We choose what movies we watch, what stories and dramas we participate in, what relationships we form and maintain, what activities we take up, and what situations we place ourselves in. We choose our diet and lifestyle, not only in physical and material forms, but in mental, emotional, and moral terms.

Soul as Morality

Our subconscious mind is primarily concerned with the body and its survival in the outer world by constantly evolving to become of the same nature, has a primary motive of self-preservation, and acts to maintain habitual behaviors that are emotionally driven and compulsive in nature. The self-conscious mind is focused primarily on others and the activities of the outer world, while interpreting everything through stories of some kind, and constantly preoccupied with redundant thoughts that replay memories and imaginary ideas of some sort. The soul is concerned almost exclusively with our moral nature and what type of things we engage in from a purely ethical perspective of higher (virtuous) and lower (vices) consciousness as principles that we live our life by forming what you could think of as our biography. Our morality is “who we are as a person” and what we stand for in terms of what we demonstrate through our thoughts, emotions, and activities. Whatever we engage and participate in, we become like and bond ourselves to that level of consciousness. We “classify ourselves”, so to speak, through our actions. To be is to do. Whatever we’re being inside determines what we do outside.

The soul isn’t concerned with the body or it destiny, because the body is temporary and only acts as a vehicle or instrument for the soul to express through and self-create by way of. The self-conscious, brain-oriented mind that arises in the body as the soul’s awareness of itself “as” the body, is the identity acquired by way of the body that allows the soul to “experience itself” in a specific way. The experience acquired through the body forms our identity, often called the ego, is mortal in nature and “dies” with the brain and body. The soul is that part of us that’s always in a “witnessing position”. That part of us that’s “in the experience”, having it, yet remains apart from it while observing it both inwardly and outwardly at the same time. The soul maintains a form of fundamental detachment from the body and its life experiences in the sense that while it fully engages in the experiences as a means of gaining an experience of itself in some way, it never mistakes itself for being the body or a mortal being. It realizes that it has full control over both the mind and the body, and, when awake and self-aware, exercises that ability in an intentional and deliberate manner. When the soul remains asleep, the body as the unconscious, unaware aspect that’s always being controlled by it’s instinctual nature and forces outside of itself, and as a means of seeking physical gratification of some kind, runs, and therefore determines the soul through the memories it produces.

The soul’s purpose in living is to become the dominant force within the body, guiding and directing the feelings, thoughts, and activities towards a higher means that consistently moves away from self-indulgence and need-gratification of any form, and towards assuming it’s universal identity acting as a “neutral force for good” in any situation that serves the “highest good” for everyone involved. It’s not self-oriented and driven by needs and desires, but rather selfless with a servant attitude. Because it lacks desire of the things of the material world, it’s free of them, and not held in captivity by them. Because it’s free of self-serving agendas, it’s only intention in any situation is to act as a mediator that facilitates and influences it to the highest and most beneficial means that serves the karma of everyone involved. It doesn’t impose itself on others, or act to coerce and manipulate, because it doesn’t derive its identity through the material world or the body it inhabits, but rather as a benevolent being of a divine and virtuous nature. It seeks not for itself, but only to give. It draws all its power from an internal, eternal source.

To purify the soul, is to allow it to dominate and utilize both the conscious and subconscious mind to create experiences of itself that are completely detached from material needs and identification. It’s to intentionally develop yourself to a virtuous nature that’s capable of drawing in and integrating higher intelligence. It’s to release your needs around material identification, and turn your full awareness within, drawing only on your internal source for power in the outer world. Connecting and developing a strong bond and flow of communication with your Higher Self that’s always held in loving regard with absolute trust. It’s to always act on yourself with that same benevolent mind-set, always loving and caring for yourself as you do others. It’s the act of cultivating yourself to be a channel for divine energy to flow into the world unimpeded, without corruption, and pure in form. By cultivating virtuous qualities, we heal our mind and emotions, strengthen and fortify our body, and become a catalyst for good in the world. This is the only true goal and purpose of the soul.

Merkabah – Resonance, Sympathetic Induction, and Coherence as the Vehicle for Ascension

merka
The idea of the Merkabah, which is typically represented by the interlaced triangles of the Hexad, or what some refer to as the Star of David, in scientific terms associates the idea with the laws that govern it and are necessary in order to perform what the idea suggests. The term “Merkabah” means “light vehicle” that is used as the means to ascend into higher dimensions. While sacred geometry and the principles and laws they represent are multi-dimensional and have as many diverse forms of meaning as there are people interpreting them to find their secrets as encoded messages, they also represent set laws that can be used in numerous ways as practical guidelines and tools for creating not only within the physical realm, but simultaneously in the astral, mental, and causal realms. Laws as geometric shapes form a series of correspondences with letters, numbers, colors, sounds, states, planetary influences, and so on, that give us explicit instructions for how to use our own mind-body system to move between higher and lower dimensions, which exist as planes of a greater unified dimension, all of which operate according to the same set of universal laws.

 
The basic idea behind the Heptad as two interlace triangles, one pointing down, and the other up, is “equilibrium” or harmony between the higher planes and the lower planes. It also represents the idea of structure, function, and order which are the very basis of law itself, which says that the form of something determines how it functions or behaves and the order or growth process it naturally undertakes through a process of unfolding or becoming. Vibration itself (as consciousness) takes on a form as patterning with distinct behaviors as a kind of personality. The planes of light and matter, and of mind over matter, or the fact that the mind is the same thing as matter in a different state, separated only be degrees of vibration. The higher plane of light, being of a higher vibration is invisible or translucent to the lower plane of solid matter, which moves at a considerably slower rate. Because all planes are of the same basic energetic substance, separated only by degrees of vibration as a kind of scale that moves from higher to lower, the way to move within these interlaced planes is by altering your vibratory frequency as your quality of consciousness.

merk

In order to achieve the level of consciousness we call God, which is pure and Divine in nature vibrating at the highest rate and existing on the higher levels of a unified consciousness, we have to become “like God” in order to “know God”. The God’s, so to speak, never come down from heaven, because to do so they’d have to lower their vibration as a degradation or corruption of their consciousness, as in the legend of the “fallen angels”, and so work with the lower planes through the soul or astral body of man as an intermediary or medium between planes. The way we move between planes is by achieving the low end of the frequency of the higher plane, so we can resonate with it, and be drawn into it through sympathetic induction, where we begin vibrating at the same rate. This is why all spiritual traditions involve a form of personal transformation as the means of being “god-like”, cultivating in us the same attributes and qualities as God as the means of raising our vibration and level of consciousness to the point where we can ascend naturally to higher dimensions. We are energetic beings whose vibratory frequency demonstrates our level and of quality of conscious, intuitively, intellectually, and morally.

 
As humans we possess three levels or aspects of the mind, represented by the triangle of the trinity, referred to as the higher mind or Self, the subconscious or lower mind, and the conscious or self-conscious mind, which is the aspect most think of when we use the term “mind”. Being of the lower-animal kingdom, governed by the subconscious mind which exists in a primary state of automatic or instinctual functions performed without direct awareness or creative use of thought and will, exists in a fundamental state of hypnosis as a part of the group mind of the astral plane of mass consciousness, and is often completely operated out of suggestions received from the environment and conditioning their programmed with in their formative years. Because our vibration is set and developed through our consciousness and ability to think for ourselves, we raise our vibration through creative thinking that cultivates our individuality. If we simply think the thoughts of our training, and never really realize the power of our will to self create, then we remain energetically apart of the lower realm of the animal kingdom of the Earth plane.

Merkaba

In order to “draw into us” consciousness as a quality of being and knowledge of the principles that govern the material realm, we have to be of the same vibratory frequency or within close enough range that we can still draw it into us by resonating with it. The way we move between a hierarchy of parallel and inter-nested planes of existence, as levels of consciousness or intelligence, is through sympathy. When we exist within a certain range of vibration, we can resonate with other vibrations within that same frequency. Through resonance, energy as qualities of consciousness merge into each other, equalize and form coherence and begin vibrating harmoniously by forming a combination as “one consciousness”. When the lower vibration raises itself to come within range of the higher vibration, an induction takes place, and it draws the lower vibration into a higher rate of vibration, where it forms a new level of consciousness as its normal and consistent frequency.

 
By raising our vibration to the highest point of the lower plane to come into near proximity of the lower range of the higher plane, it causes a paradigm shift as the vibratory structure of the mind that incorporates new awareness, shifting and expanding its ability to conceive of new realities. Through this vibratory paradigm shift, which systematically upgrades and modifies all ideas held in the mind that involves and is affected by the new realizations, the mind is literally restructured and transformed to be able to perceive and understand higher worlds that exist simultaneously within the worlds of the lower planes.

In order to attain the consciousness of higher planes, and draw it into us, we have to develop ourselves to the level of that plane. We can only attain what is equivalent to us, or that which we are similar to in nature. We have to develop ourselves to higher levels in order to use them for our mental and emotional transformation. We can only “know God” by becoming the same as God, by becoming “god-like” in consciousness and identifying with our divine nature. This is why all initiatory processes involve purifying the soul, releasing attachments to our material existence, cultivating virtues to develop our morality, and through the constant study of philosophy, the arts, and the sciences. A pure mind that possesses knowledge of the higher worlds is necessary to be able to act as the tuner and receiver for higher vibration, in order to lift ourselves to the Heavens. We have to engage in a devotional practice of attaining higher knowledge through meditation, concentration, contemplation, and by bringing that knowledge into a daily practice. We acquire it like we acquire anything, by merging with it, embodying it, becoming the channel for it, and transforming ourselves through the synthesis of it. Only through sympathy do we attain the knowledge, essence, qualities, and virtues necessary to vibrate at a higher rate.

 
Through self-realization of our true nature, not as unique beings or advanced animals, but as divine beings with the ability to self-create, we let go of our personal agendas of a selfish nature, and step into our roles as universal beings that are “in this world, but not of it”. As divine beings sent here to evolve mankind by merging into them, becoming one with them in mind and body, while still maintaining awareness of our true identity and creative power to transcend and therefore evolve mankind from the inside out.

 
All growth and development is self-facilitated. It comes only through desire, devotion and willful effort. No one can make us learn or grow or do our work for us. We are the sole creators of our experiences and of ourselves. What we are always looking for outside of ourselves actually resides inside of us, waiting to be awakened and consciously birthed while in the body. Only through self-awareness and knowledge of ourselves as we truly are can we actively and consciously undergo the process of personal transformation by purifying our mind and body and tuning ourselves with the proper qualities and thoughts that intentionally develop our vibratory frequency allowing us to ascend one plane at a time, undergoing the process of death and rebirth while still living, so that at the death of our body our soul will permanently reside on the higher planes of consciousness which is our true home.

Fate, Astrology, and the Seven Archons of the Material Planes

Dreaming
The material realm of matter is governed primarily by the subconscious aspect of the mind, which is the aspects that governs all of Nature and the animal kingdom as the instinctual field of mass consciousness, or what some think of as the collective unconscious. This field of intelligent energy is also known as the Astral Plane of the Earth, and is populated with principles and archetypes, that vibrate at different frequencies based on kingdoms (mineral, plant, animal, human) as the level of consciousness that govern the different kingdoms, which is further divided into the species and types of that kingdom. This forms the classification system that organizes the consciousness of all living systems that make up the natural world.

 
Within the material realm, all living creatures, with the exception of man, only possesses a level and degree of consciousness that “thinks for it”, by providing it with automatic behaviors regulated intuitively through feelings, emotions, impulses, and natural reactions. No aspect of the natural world here on Earth has the ability to self-create or create in the general sense through novel inventions and engaging in creative mental processes, with the exception of humans. Their life in terms of what we would call destiny, is predetermined by their species and classification, their living conditions and circumstances, and so on. All of which are governed by the natural forces of Nature, symbolically represented as Archons (angels), Archetypes, astrological influences, and the Elements. Their fate is set at birth, and they don’t have the ability to willfully alter the course of their life by thinking for themselves, actively problem-solving and choosing, or through their ability to imagine as the precursor to actual creation. Because of this, the subconscious mind is referred to as the faithful mind because it’s only course of action is based on programming. It’s the mind of automatic actions that respond to the environmental influences which are considered fateful. Its fate, so to speak, is set by the stars as a fixed pattern and range of possibilities that influence the natural forces of the material world of which it is subject to.

Man, born into the physical world through an animal body has the subconscious mind that’s natural to this world and governs all the natural biological processes of the body in an automatic and unconscious fashion, also possesses the higher aspect of the mind called the “self-conscious” mind and the Divine Soul that has free will and the ability to tune into higher forms of knowledge as the means of creating through original thought of some form. Through our inherent ability to develop ourselves through study and activities, and make decisions for ourselves hat actively impose a direction on our life and willfully determine our destiny. But only if we exercise our higher intellectual capacities of choice and free will. We only ever grow (break existing patterns) through striving and effort as willful action.

 
We are the only beings on this planet that have these higher capacities, but we have to realize it and actively choose to use our will in order to become an individual capable of thinking and doing for ourselves. If we don’t become self-aware and wake-up to our power to be self-determined, and live our life instead from a primarily unconscious state as the programming of our subconscious mind instilled through our conditioning, and instead allow ourselves to be pulled along and determined by our environment and the will of others, then we are subject to fate, and have the experience of life “happening to us” without any real control or say so.

 
When we live in a primarily unconscious state, unaware of our true identity, and act only out of natural, emotionally driven behaviors and reactions, easily directed and commanded by the influence of others, our lives are accurately predicted by our astrological birth charts, which govern the astrological influences of natural forces, cycles, and currents of the lower mind. Our life is then predetermined and prophesized by the automatic enactment of inherent tendencies and our basic predisposition. Throughout our life we’re governed by habitual and addictive tendencies, codependency of various sorts, and reactive emotional behaviors. Our emotions rule us and exercise constant control over us. Other people can easily exercise control over us by keeping us in an emotionally reactive state. Our life is lived from a primarily unconscious state where we live out the same tendencies over and over, in many different relationships through the various and evolving stages of our life. Our only thoughts are ones we received from others through some form of suggestion, education, reading, conversation, movie, song, etc. We stay in the same patterns formed and held into place by the same moods, feelings, emotions, thoughts, and actions. We can accurately use the events of the past to predict the future. We can look at the theme and path of their last relationship, and predict the future of their current relationship. No matter what they go through in life, they remain the same basic person.

The only way to move beyond the laws of one plane is to identify with the higher plane that resides over and governs it, and work by way of the laws that govern that higher plane. We can’t get away from the laws that govern our physical plane, but we can transcend it, and work by way of the laws that create and orchestrate it. To transcend the fate of an unconscious existence, is to realize our true identity as beings that are not “of this world”, but rather of a world that resides over it, and by using our ability to think for ourselves, make conscious decisions for our life, and willfully bring them into fruition, we can determine our own destiny, what path our life takes, and who we become as a result. Our awareness of our true inner self, who we are as a soul inhabiting our body, and giving that “part of ourselves” precedence within us, gives birth to our higher self or soul within the body of our lower self. We then consciously fashion ourselves to be an individual, and are no longer subject to the will of others, or blindly pulled along the currents of life as the group mind, which pull us every which way.

 
By waking up, becoming self-aware and coming to know ourselves as we truly are, and recognizing how our mind works according to the universal principles that govern and operate it through a group will, we can learn how to operate our own equipment while employing the higher laws of the mind that shape identity through individual will. We can separate ourselves from our emotions and the emotional charges and willful projections of others, learn to maintain control over ourselves, and consciously make decisions that will break past patterns and set into motion a new reality of our own making. We can become the captain of our own ship and through a sense of confidence in our abilities and adventure, and chart new courses never before experienced. We can regain our ability to not only be self-determined in every moment by how we’re being, but also through our ability to control ourselves, no longer be influenced by others, and instead directly bear an influence on them.

 
The natural forces that govern the material realm and act through the lower subconscious mind, commonly referred to as the Elements, are controlled by the higher mind through active use of the will and imagination. Through our will we can command and direct the energies of the natural world. When we recognize and step into our Divine birthright, and become as the gods we are kin to, and take possession of our power to willfully create our destined adventures by taking decisive actions and believing in ourselves and our ability to create new worlds. The right to choose our destiny is the birthright of every person. When other people, corporations, governments, or civilizations try to take that right away from us and we willingly cooperate, we accept the fate of whatever they offer, and lend our will to their creations by cooperating and complying to their will for us. Even in this situation, we are willingly giving them our life by allowing them to command our will and determine our actions. We act cooperatively to fulfill their ideas for us, and become as herded and caged animals when we do. Whatever we equate ourselves to, we become like in body and mind. Whatever we relate to and identify with, we align with, merge into, and become one with.

 
Either way, whether willful creation or blind submission . . . the choice is always ours!

Changing Your Vibration through the Law of Polarity and Cultivating the Art of Attention

The-Knowledge-of-the-Planets-Cameron-Gray
Our vibration is our mood or mental state that’s determined by or comes as the expression of feelings, moods, emotions, and behaviors. Whatever we focus on, give our attention to, and think about, modifies our state accordingly. Our will naturally directs our attention, and whatever we place our attention on and think about, changes our vibration as our state of mind. By cultivating the “Art of Attention” by means of exercising your will, you can learn how to control and determine your mood and mental state. It’s pretty easy to notice that what we give attention to and think about creates how we feel as a correspondence. How we feel sets our mood as a kind of tempo and determines what type of things we continue focusing on that are of the same feeling-mood that multiply and amplify it. Whatever mood we’re in determines how we experience the events of our day and what aspects of it we notice, pull out, and use to create our overall experience of any given event or situation.

 
All vibration is movement of conscious energy between poles of opposites. These poles exist as opposite qualities: hot – cold; happy – sad; love – hate; fear – courage; health – illness, and so on. Any mental state and its opposites are merely two poles or extremes of the same thing, separated only by degrees of variation that moves us from one to the other. We can transmute one state into another through a practical understanding of the Law of Polarity. We change our state by first deciding to, then willfully directing our attention to its opposite quality. Don’t waste your time trying to fight, kill, or stamp out a mental state, but instead learn to cultivate its opposite mental state. If you’re possessed by fear, don’t take an attitude of trying to fight the fear, but instead cultivate it’s opposing quality of courage, and in doing so, fear will disappear.

 

transmission
Attention is singular in nature. We can only focus on and give our attention to one thing at a time. Thought we can move from one thing to another, but at any given moment we’re only capable of focusing on and being fully aware of one thing at a time. Whatever we place our attention on and begin thinking about, we develop into whole realities just through thinking itself. Thought is creative and constructive in nature, and by placing our attention on something and beginning to think about it, we build whole realities around it by how we think about it. The mind is the builder and creator of reality. If we’re giving our attention to negative feelings, we grow only the realities that match and express the negativity, propagating and growing it into multiple experiences over and extended period of time. Likewise, by focusing only on the positive in terms of what we want to create and use as the means of creating our experiences out of, we form realities that are positive in nature, while growing and multiplying them.

 
To kill a negative quality, concentrate on the positive of the same quality, and the vibration as a mental state will gradually change from negative to positive, from undesirable to desirable, from destructive to constructive. Whatever aspect of a quality or mental state we focus and concentrate our energy on, we polarize ourselves to. If we focus on the negative, we become polarized to it, and vibrate at that frequency, creating our life experiences out of that state, and ourselves by way of our own self-created experiences. If you have an illness or disease, don’t concentrate on fighting the disease, but rather creating health in its place, and once health is established, the illness disappears. Whatever we give attention to and concentrate on, we give life to, and we energize and vitalize it and participate in actively creating it by thinking about it.

energy design
Whatever we focus on, think about, and imagine as realities or experiences, we align ourselves with, and become a co-creator of that reality. Whatever ideas or memories we choose to nourish and feed with our attention, we use to consciously create our experiences by way of the quality as a state-of-mind that idea produces. Our state of mind has very distinct realities inherent in it, and when we employ that state we act to faithfully create that type of reality as a personal experience. When we’re feeling scared, we focus on what’s causing us to feel scared, think about it in scary terms, run scenarios through our mind of possible realities that will result from it, amplifying and increasing the fear, and tuning ourselves to the vibratory frequency of the fear. This frequency as our mental state, becomes our “perceptual lens” that we “look through” and perceive (see) only what’s of the same vibratory frequency (nature) and can be imagined (remade) in such a way that it systematically produces more of the same fear. Like begets more of that which is like itself. Whatever vibratory frequency we tune ourselves to as our mental state, we become the channel for producing more of the same type of experiences. That quality of consciousness enters into us, becomes us in mind and body, and forms the means through which we perceive and create ourselves by way of it.

 
By changing our focus to one of courage, bravery, and confidence, and cultivating that feeling within us, imagining ourselves acting courageous, we begin feeling different, thinking different, and seeing in a different way. We imagine ourselves being courageous and confident in whatever situation we’re facing, and in doing so, fear no longer exists in us. It’s no longer a part of our reality. It disappears. We become tuned to the vibration of courage as a mental state, and not only experience all of life from this perspective, but also sensing ourselves “as” courageous and begin identifying with that experience of ourselves.

 
By understanding the Law of Vibration and Polarization – we have the formula for learning to use our will to regulate our attention and what we choose to concentrate on. By working consciously with the Law of Polarity we can change our mental state at will, and change our vibratory frequency as a result. By changing your polarity you master your mood, change your mental state, set your disposition, and build up your character from that perspective and through that quality. All pairs of opposites exist in degrees as a variation or gradient range that moves from one to another like a sliding scale. Our mind may be transmuted from state to state; degree to degree; condition to condition; pole to pole; vibration to vibration, through active and deliberate use of our will.

light flames

By changing our polarity, it not only changes what we see in our others and our environment and how we are influenced by our own perceptions, but also determines our ability to influence others and our environment. We directly affect our environment through our mental state. What we attract and feel attracted to is based on our mental state. How we influence others by our interaction with them, whether silent and energetic or actual, is produced by our mental state, which activates that same mental state in them, which is why we tend to only interact with those who share the same mental state. Our mental state not only determines our reality and what we naturally connect with and interact with all around us, but also determines what we bring out in others, and what reality we serve to co-create by the very attitude through which our behaviors come.

 
Our mental state as our vibratory frequency has a distinct patterning to it as qualities that form characteristics and our disposition as a perspective and tendencies, which sees only what matches the inner state doing the viewing, and determines how we form a basic interpretation of what we’re seeing that reforms it to be like us. To be a product of our vibratory frequency as a mental state that produces an equivalent outer reality. Not in objective and actual terms, but in subjective and experiential terms. Our vibratory frequency determines what stands out in our environment, what we notice and what elements we abstract and use as the basis for telling a story about that matches our mood and serves to express it, giving us a channel for bringing the inner feelings into the outer world as it’s equivalent in form and personality.

 
The most fundamental use of choice and free will comes through what we ‘choose” (whether consciously or unconsciously) to place our attention on and bring to life by thinking about it. As we think about something, whether an idea, memory, wish, or as a means of anticipating something, we merge into and become one with it in mind and body, and serve as the vehicle through which it comes into the world as our reality. Our focus and attention is what directs the spiritual forces as a projection that awakens and draws into us whatever we’re stimulating with our awareness and thought. We merge into and become united with whatever we think about and serve to give it life through us, as us. We become the channel for whatever mood we embody, and the thoughts themselves form the pathway between the inner and the outer that brings the imaginary inner world out into the outer world as a correspondence, by first vibrating to the mood and the form we give it through our thoughts, that stimulate that same vibration in everything around us and allows us to only perceive in everyone and everything else only what matches our vibration and thought-forms.

pentad
By understanding the power of our own mind in creating our experience of reality while creating us through the same mental state, we can learn to take control of our own mind by simply learning to be selective in what we give our attention to, think about, or actively engage in. We can begin by becoming aware of what we tend to focus on and give life to by nurturing it with our attention and allowing it to grow in us like a seed unfolding into a full-fledged reality that we mistaken for real, and whenever we’re thinking about something we don’t want to become, willfully redirect our attention onto what we do want to give life to instead and have as a part of our personal reality.

 
Allow yourself to notice that what you focus on and think about determines how you feel and what mood it puts you in. Along with this realization, notice that you can change your mood by simply changing what you’re focused on, giving your attention to, and thinking about. Change your focus, and you change your mood. Change your mood and you change your experience of reality. Change your experience of reality and you change your sense of self, and how you perceive yourself by way of your own self-created experiences. By learning to consciously direct your attention, you can create your state, regulate your vibratory frequency, and become self-determined. By removing your attention from people and ideas, they no longer exist as a part of your world or experience. By placing your attention on what you do want to become one with and create in your life, you take the most fundamental step in the art of self-creation and begin facilitating your own transformative process by mastering your own mind.

Personal Transformation from your Lower-Self to your Higher-Self: “Striving for Self-Perfection”

Transcendence
The idea of perfection has been greatly misconstrued, and has even in some cases been turned into a “bad” idea by some who use it in more of the sense of standards being placed “on us” by others, trying to live up to their ideas about us or please them in some way by changing our behaviors in order to win their favor and affections, or in an attempt to remedy the idea of “worthiness” by telling you you’re perfect just the way you are, and you need not do anything to be worthy of “God’s love”. All these concepts are built out of the idea that perfection has something to do with “someone out there” (others or God) that’s placing standards on you that have to be met in order to be considered perfect, and therefore worthy of their love and generosity, or to be included in their private circle. Yet, none of these have anything to do with the real idea behind “self-perfection”.

 
To be perfect is to be utilizing all off your talents, latent potential, inner qualities, knowledge, special abilities, and untapped inner resources to willfully modify and adjust, or rearrange your mental paradigm as your perceptual lens that identifies errors in your perception and dynamics you’re programmed with that are destructive, harmful, unproductive, sabotaging, and cause you misery and suffering somehow by way of your own tendencies. Perfection can also be thought of as creating an “ideal” for yourself that’s what you deem to be “the best you can be”, that create a life experience of being empowered in your ability to actively create it through mastering your will, and where you are fulfilled in the most ordinary sense, and able to productively create in your life in a way that creates health, happiness, and prosperity. Not by obsessively trying to change others so you’ll be alright to stay just as you are, but by working exclusively on yourself to recognize and address your own character flaws, false perceptions, and unconscious tendencies. All of which are acting together to cause you to express in a negative way producing your own suffering.

venturi manSelf-perfection is to look within, and through introspection (examining yourself), see what type of story you’re always in the process of living out, and what role you’re playing in that story that shapes you by way of it. We always start with a paradigm structured out of our accumulated experiences that are all interpreted through the same type of story-line, forming a consistent experience of our outer reality and the events of our life that are “produced by” our perception, then used to create our experience, which shapes and defines us by way of them. We are at once the author of the story being told by how we interpret everything, the main character in our story that everything revolves around having the experience of it as an actual reality, while watching it being played out as a reflection in others. We are the central point out of which our world evolves and is held into place forming a consistent pattern as a theme that forms the basis for all our experiences. We’re always the one causing our own suffering, emotional pain and unhappiness, by how we process information and what dynamics we naturally engage in and cooperatively participate in acting it out as a group scenario.

 
We are always the ones creating our own experiences. We have only to begin recognizing this while cultivating the ability to look at ourselves from an objective perspective so we can see our own tendencies and patterns without an emotional investment or need to justify it by how we explain it. When we can remove our attachments to our perceptions, and step outside of the emotional element that the story acts to express and create more of, and look at the story we’re living out from a dissociated position, we can begin “seeing” ourselves as we really are. It’s the emotional component that causes us to become unconscious of our own behaviors. It’s the emotion controlling our thoughts that “forms” the story we begin living out of. Emotions become the motivation for all our behaviors. Emotions are “energy in motion” that produces activity that controls our thoughts to form the story that expresses the emotion as a reality that amplifies and increases the emotion, giving us more of the same feeling through the telling. We are conditioned to certain emotions through our family dynamics that form the initial patterns for all our relationships that we continue to create out of throughout our life. Our conditioning is what establishes (or reestablishes) our mental paradigm as a mental structure of a whole series of congruent patterns, all of which act together to form a larger pattern as the “theme” that shapes all our events by conforming them to tell the same type of story. All our behaviors are unconsciously being produced in a natural, spontaneous, and automatic way by our mind as our soul.

phoenix

The transformative idea around self-perfection, is to become self-aware of what we’re normally not aware of that’s being acted out unconsciously, and in recognizing and forming awareness around it, we have the ability to begin working with it consciously in an intentional and deliberate way to “reform” ourselves by embodying new qualities that naturally lend themselves to new ways of being. In recognizing the dynamics we’re programmed to as life-patterns, we can also recognize the emotions that produce them and keep us actively engaging in them. Emotions are the common denominator that connects the inner to the outer through the same thematic patterning as a behavioral dynamic. By understanding the emotions we’re prone to, we can also realize how we’re being internally stimulated emotionally by other people and situations that render us unconscious (literally) and keep us involved in acting out the same dynamics. Again, just the awareness of what’s happening inside of us at any given moment, nullifies it, and brings it under control, providing us with the neutralized basis to begin actively working on ourselves to change our own internal dynamics, which produce a chain reaction that also begins transforming our outer experiences.

 
The ancient art of Alchemy as Personal Transformation is the secret to all healing that allows us to move from a personalized, unconscious status, to an elevated conscious and universal status. Through self-awareness that brings realization around unconscious and hidden aspects of ourselves, we can deliberately work on ourselves to “perfect” ourselves healing unconscious tendencies by integrating them. Awareness alone begins the process of integration which transforms it by what we “choose to employ” in its place. All healing, in the spiritual sense, is becoming aware of aspects of ourselves that operate below the level of consciousness, without our direct awareness, that keeps us living out of false realities as an emotional delusion. It’s being fully self-aware and therefore self-directed and self-created with full awareness and comprehension of what we’re creating.

 
To perfect, is to reconstruct in order to operate in a highly proficient and harmonious manner. It’s to create in a benevolent and productive manner as a true vessel for self-expression as love that brings a deep sense of contentment, inner peace, and emotional beauty. We have to first learn how to bring emotions under control, neutralizing their effect “on us”, disengaging negative ones, while strategically employing positive ones to use as the basis for our expression as our perceptions and behaviors, and the dynamics our behaviors create and participate in within the outer world. All of our life-dynamics and thematic stories emerge naturally from whatever emotions we’re experiencing and allowing to come “through” us. Thought exists in direct relationship with its emotional equivalent. What we’re thinking about and imagining as a preview for reality is formed by our emotional state. Our emotions control our thoughts keeping us “thinking out of” a predominately unconscious (repetitious) state. And likewise, our thoughts also have the ability to produce emotions in response to them that are their equivalent as the expressive component of the thoughts that produce behaviors that brings the inward reality of the thoughts outward as a congruent experience. On the material plane, thoughts are passive and emotions are active. On the higher, spiritual (invisible) planes, the opposite is true and thoughts as ideas are active, and emotions are a passive response to thoughts as their equivalent that form the physical channel for actualizing the thoughts as an experience of reality. The dynamic relationship between thought, emotion, and actions exists on all planes simultaneously through different orientations.

humanenergy-spiritual-beings-consciousnessTo self-perfect and therefore consciously create, is to work this formula from a higher perspective where you neutralize emotion and bring them under control, while activating original thought as the template for creating new experiences that match the emotion to the idea by stimulating it, becoming a vehicle for it’s expression by employing the behaviors that act it out. It’s only by letting go of our habitual emotional states that we can gain control over them and over our thoughts which are otherwise controlled by them. Once we neutralize the intensity and stimulating qualities of emotions, we can experience a kind of “freeing sensation” that creates a strangely objective feeling as a dissociated awareness. In this awareness that’s no longer controlled by our emotional states and the emotions of others, we become aware from a calm place that we have the ability to choose, not only what we think and why we’re thinking it, but also how we want to respond to any situation, not as an unconscious and automatic reaction being projected, but as a means of creating in the situation by redirecting it. We gain a position of being “at cause” rather than the “effect that then acts as the cause”, causing more of the same thing. In this strange new awareness of choice without any influences (making the choice for us) directing our choice, comes a sense of responsibility for what we want to create by how we interact and consciously move it in a new direction by not only deflecting the emotions of others, but intentionally introducing new ones that change their emotional state and serve to move it in a whole new direction, creating a new experience.

 
With knowledge and the creative ability to apply it directly on others to create in an intentional and precise way, comes a heightened sense of responsibility for our creation and the consequences we draw on ourselves as a result. This is why the prerequisite for gaining higher knowledge is moral purity that cleanses our character of undesirable traits that not only would cause us to use our power in a selfish and harmful way, but would also condemn the soul of the individual to the consequences of their own actions. Any act that hurts another person, hurts ourselves in exact measure. What we do unto others we also do unto ourselves by drawing to us direct consequences of our own actions. Those who look to control and manipulate others, are in fact controlled and manipulated by others in direct response to them. As we seek to manipulate, we’re being manipulated just through the seeking itself. Any action creates an equal or greater reaction of the same nature. The effect is always the equivalent or of the same nature as the cause.

 
So self-perfection comes as a heightened form of self-awareness that allows us to reverse the orientation of the lower-emotional mind controlling the higher-idea mind, by bringing emotions into a neutral state where we’re no longer reactive to them, and we intentionally choose what ideas we’re going to employ, that moves us from a unconscious personalized illusion of reality, into a more universal and creatively objective reality where our will and ability to choose are reinstated and we begin creating ourselves and our lives through a different relationship with our own mind and body. We become conscious creators in our own life by mastering our ability to control and direct the elements of thought and emotion. We step outside of our self, and see ourselves in an objective manner from the perspective of our higher-self, always witnessing the experience from a neutral state by remaining outside of them, unattached and without desire. From this higher and more objective perspective, we are unaffected by the elements of the material – Astral plane, and are therefore able to control and direct it by creating and utilizing it as our medium and tools for self-creating.

souls_sphere_

To self-perfect is to honestly self-create with full awareness of what you’re doing and what reality you’re initiating that move you from being the effect of your conditioning to the one determining it. The soul is no longer control by the emotional states and behaviors of the body, and is free to use the body as a neutral conduit for creating within the material plane. By gaining control of the Elements, and stepping fully into our higher consciousness, we lose all personal desires born out of our identification with our body, and take on a position of serving the greater whole of humanity by acting always to facilitate their growth by moving them out of the darkness and into the light where they can see all aspects of themselves as they really are for the first time. In our perfection we ascend in consciousness to a higher plane that’s not personally invested in this plane, where we realize and can fully utilize our ability to deliberately express and create within this plane by first controlling and directing our own emotional thoughts, then being able to act as a mirror for others to become aware of their true nature and the delusions they create by letting their emotions control their mind and produce their experience of reality (and themselves) by way of them.

 
Self-perfection is gaining full control of your self within the material plane by stepping into yourself on the higher plane and being able to see everything in the light with eyes wide open. It’s to become self-aware, self-realized, and self-created. It’s to actualize latent potential, not necessarily as attributes and qualities that transform your character, though this may be how it starts, but by being able to take on a whole new perspective that sees your self “in this world, but not of it”, literally. Where you begin identifying more with your spiritual aspect than your bodily aspect. Where you return your body to a neutral vehicle for spirit to move through and create in the world masterfully using the very elements that shape it.

Pineal Gland – The Spiritual Experience of Conscious Dreaming

waves

Often when we talk about envisioning, soul journeying, or spiritual experience, many don’t know for sure what it is or what the terms actually mean in the real sense. Here my goal is to simply describe the basic nature of the mystical experience in terms of the energetic hallucinations that are a natural function of the imagination when being used with greater abilities. Everybody’s experience varies to a certain degree and some have distinct personal styles of envisioning just as we have unique and varying mental perceptions of normal day-to-day reality. I am only giving a basic idea as a means of comprehending what the experience might be like.

I will give basic terminology “meaning” simply as a means of creating distinctions for greater understanding of how it actually operates. The descriptions are not the things themselves, but simply the ideas used to illustrate the nature of the experience as if you were actually having it. Anytime we are attempting to describe what lacks description, a vague approximation as a representation must always be considered and applied in the practical sense. We must get a ‘feel” for, or sense what we’re talking about. It’s only important that you understand so that you will know when you are actually having the experience. Like most forms of intuition, chances are you are doing it to a certain extent naturally as part of your human nature and simply don’t realize that’s what it is. Like most things if we don’t have some sort of direct training on or around an idea, or don’t have anybody to talk to about it, we are always left somewhat guessing and wondering, while never really knowing for sure. The more training we have, the more knowledge we gain about a subject, the more we begin seeing it all around us and know how to interact with it in a meaningful way. The first step to mastery at any level is education and obtaining knowledge that can be practiced accurately and with immediate results.

We must start by realizing that the most basic principle of the Universe is that of Evolution. Everything is in motion and a constant state of fluctuating as “becoming”. All energy and life-forms in the energetic realm of the astral plane (which we experience during meditation) move and flow through rhythmic movements that form a basic entrainment that serves to align the whole system through a natural form of rapport – resonance as energetic sympathy, where energy as information that enters into essence of some form and creates an effect. The nature of the energy as a “quality of consciousness” creates a analogous (like) form. Follow this basic procedure for starting any kind of meditation or hypnosis designed to stimulate and open the third-eye or Pineal gland.

universal mind

Sit in a reclined position or lie down in a comfortable position. Systematically relax your body through a basic relaxation technique. Then scan your body for any areas you might still be holding tension in, and consciously relax it by intending it. Tell it to relax, and then allow it. Close your eyes, and focus on your breathing, the sound of your breath, the movement of your chest up, and down, rising and falling, and notice that the air you inhale is cool and dry, and as you exhale it is warm and moist. As you begin merging with your breath, sense your heart beat. Then simply observe the rhythm of your breath with the beat of your heart, and notice that just by placing your attention on both of them, they begin forming synchronicity. Continue breathing, listening to your heartbeat and relaxing your body. Don’t try to control the process, simply allow. Inside, find the center of your head, then create a spacious feeling around it. Place your attention straight ahead betwee your eyebrows, and slightly above eye-level. You should feel a slight strain in your eyes from the angle. Just relax into it by allowing it.

Notice that in the darkness you may not see much in terms of shapes, but maybe various saturation as patterns of black to grey. There maybe be clouded areas that take on colors, or simply seem grayish against the black background. You may notice a dark spot or “hole” that either begins a swirling motion around it, or slowly forms into an eye, then fades and disappears. You may see the eye from different angles and various perspectives. You may notice pinpoints of light that resemble stars or form into constellations. They may be whitish or take on colors, or perhaps have rainbow-like halos.

eternity

Keep your attention focused in your third eye, the spot between your eyebrows in the lower part of your forehead. If it wanders, simply bring it back and continue to focus. If you find yourself allowing one of the thoughts to take hold and begin forming into a conceptual reality, simply refocus your attention to the center of your head and allow the thoughts to simply move by in a stream-like motion. Don’t try to make anything happen, or anticipate what’s going to happen, but simply allow your mind to feel spacious, vast and extremely open. Create the feeling of empty space. Imagine it like an open arena or large stage. You are not the director or writer of the play, simply the observer. The audience. You will allow whatever unfolds to entertain you. Reveal itself to you while you simply watch.

You may notice wave-like motions forming that either sweep from bottom to top, left to right or a combination of both. It may start as clouds or misty concentrations, much like nebula in space, or more like moving sensations with no real distinction. More like impressions that forms evolving patterns. You will notice some sort or a rhythmic pattern that rises up, expands into a flowing motion, fully expresses, and then dissipates. Simply watch it without attempting to control it. Create a kind of appreciation or admiration around it. Enjoy it and give it your full attention.

The movement may begin taking on prismatic colors that fluctuate and shimmer as it unfolds. The designs or patterns may begin taking on crisp, geometric patterning at the height of there expression and be a primary dominate color. These geometric patterns that are flowing in wave-like or spiraling motions may start taking on the qualities of distinct objects or features. Either primary shapes, shapes of certain objects, or distinct symbolic objects that are readily recognizable. Again, simply surrender to the flow of energy and do not attempt to control or determine it. Simply watch and allow it. Be fully present with it.

These patterns may start forming into either images of people, animals or full images of some sort. They may be a combination of human features, mixed with animals with areas of objects or patterning of some sort. As you watch, you may notice they become more and more distinct. Continuing with the wave-like, flowing, or spiraling movement, you may notice that they evolve through various combinations of human and animalistic characteristics. They may also evolve through different age groups, races, gender or move distinctly into humans with animal parts and strange features. It may seem as if you are watching the same essence or energy cluster evolving through various lifetimes and the forms each of those lives entailed. You may seem to notice how masculine images have inherent feminine qualities and how the feminine posses masculine qualities.

Sometimes it seems like you see landscapes, places, buildings or activities of some sort. When the images become crisp and fully developed they may begin taking on a distinct holographic appearance with shimmering, fluctuating or lustrous prismatic colors. Some may seem almost recognizable as someone you know, or resemble a clear rendition of a mythological or archetypal figure. Some seem pretty, beautiful and intriguing, while others seem demonic, disturbing or grotesque. They may evolve through a series of unfoldment that includes all of them. Some appear to have gross features, shadowy qualities and glowing eyes, others resembles angels that seem powerful and passionate, more like artistic ideas. You will notice that the demonic, grotesque images do not invoke fear of any kind, but seem to almost be beautiful in a different sort of way. You will begin losing fear as a response to various life-forms. You’ll develop the ability to view beauty and ugliness with the same internal response.

As you observe these images in detail you may start noticing energy in your body. It may come as distinct sensations like a sinking feeling, bubbly, having trouble breathing, or it may be a distinct sexual arousal that follows the flowing quality of the image. You may notice certain parts of your body with distinct sensory sensations as hot, buzzy, tingly, cool, or hot inside and cold outside. You may experience arousal that moves down your legs and out the bottom of your feet in flushing, wave-like or streaking, flaring motions. You may feel a tingling sensation as energetic rushes, or feel waves of goose-bumps. You may feel what seems like pin-pricks or distinct discharges or penetration of some sort. The energy may move upwards in the same fashion. If it moves into your third-eye, your thought/visionary process it can create an erotic feeling of flushing euphoria that is similar to a low-grade orgasm. It will quicken your thoughts and noticeably seem to excite them, change their nature and the feeling quality of their expression. This is the chemical reaction to the thoughts rising in you as a natural correspondence.

If you feel sexually aroused, or almost as if you are going to have an orgasm of some sort, don’t let it freak-you out, it’s quite normal and will serve as a distinct benefit to making it a point to meditate more often. (smiling) This is the experience of what we refer to as the “kundalini” energy that resides at the base of your spine as the sexual energy that when aroused, rises up through the energetic system of the body creating an aroused sensation that promotes vitality and positive state-of-mind associated with the pleasure centers of the body that are often called “bliss”. You may even feel the sensation of being “entered” into physically and filled up if you’re a woman, or the pleasure that comes from filling up, if you’re a man. It’s the experience of merging and expanding into energetically. Keep in mind that this type of practice is what led the Sufi’s to write erotic love-poems to God, the Beloved.

The more you practice, the easier it gets, the more readily it comes, and you develop your ability to hold greater and greater amounts of physical pleasure in your body for extended periods of time without feeling overwhelmed and needing to discharge it. Like all things it takes dedicated practice over a life-time. Once you begin experiencing the benefits of deeper forms of meditation, you may become almost addicted to it. Like the endorphins as pleasure-chemistry created from exercise.

After these types of practices, you will never again wonder why Shamans and Magi’s dress the way they do, or what the Native American rituals were all about. You will understand through experience what the term “shape-shifting” means and where it came from, why it is a Universal theme. You will understand gargoyles and strange symbolic totems. Through this Universal experience of dynamic energy that has all the natural qualities that shape physical characteristics, you might even start desiring to change your personal style to take on less of a domesticated look, and instead choose a more natural, wild approach.

This practice will also help you to form immediate and natural rapport with Nature and all Living Beings. It creates the experience of feeling a deep connection to all of life. The experience itself acts to realign your whole system into a more organic and free-flowing structure. You will feel calm, confident and cultivate a kind of inner contentment. Peace of Mind that is based on passion and a devotion to all of life and Mother Earth. You will fall in love with life itself and begin rejoicing at the simplest of things. The magic of life, becomes normal. The ordinary takes on a sense of extraordinary through enhanced sensory experiences that make them seem erotically vivid and intensely alive!
