The Relationship of the Three Aspects of the Mind and how to Work with them to Self-Create

 

The primary law of the “3 in 1”, represented by the triad in Sacred Geometry, the Supernal in the Kabbalah, the Trinity in Christianity, and the 3 upper chakra’s of the subtle energy system of the body, is considered the primary law, because it’s inherent in every single aspect of the material world, and is the law that gives birth to all other laws which naturally emerge from it. The Dyad (2 interlacing spheres) as the masculine and feminine aspects of the same thing that together birth the triad (3) as a unique combination of selected aspects of both that form an internal entity (fetus) that becomes the template (archetype) for the external, physical reality as its manifestation, which is represented by the Tetrad (4). All physical manifestation is represented by the number 4, which is really the number 2, representing that all of life is dual in nature. While we traditionally say that there are 4 Elements that make up the material world (fire, water, air, and earth), in fact there are really only 2, fire and water, because both air and earth are reproduced as combinations of fire and water in varying degrees and densities.

Air, which is the traditional symbol of spirit is produced by, or contains within it, both fire (heat) and water (moisture). From the material plane of form we say that air is the product of the sun’s heat on water, producing a vapor that rises above it as air. From the spiritual plane of unity that contains within it the potential for creating the material, air can be seen as the unification of fire and water in it’s potential state, which divides into dual aspects of itself as it descends from the plane of pure potential (unformed) in order to manifest in the material realm as informed.

Form is produced by both a passive and active component, as matter that’s charged with a frequency, giving it consciousness as a formula of information (DNA) where it’s organized into a holographic astral-etheric form as an “imagined image” (phantom) that becomes the blueprint for producing its material equivalent or twin double. All material form is accompanied by a soul as a mind-field that provides the energetic means for formulating it, holding it together as a unified being, animating it with biological processes necessary for giving it life, and a personality or propensities that produce natural behaviors.

All physical form is a product of the mind at different stages of formation, often referred to as the spirit, soul, mind, and body, and in science as the 4 states of matter as charged (electrified) plasma, gas, liquid, and solid. In Esoteric Sciences these are referred to as the causal, mental, astral, and etheric/physical planes of existence. All physical form is 3-fold in nature as a unification of invisible forces in varying stages of solidification. The mind, or energy field of the body, synonymous with the soul, which surrounds and permeates the body while extending quite some distance into the outer environment, is 3-fold in nature as a Higher Mind-Self, and the 2 lower aspects of the subconscious and self-conscious minds.

Again, this dynamic is represented by the triangle or pyramid (3 angles, 4 sides that form a square base), where the single point on the top exists on a higher plane, and the 2 lower points are parallel to each other on the same plane. Horizontal lines as a relationship always represent existing on the same material plane or level, and vertical or right-angle lines represent the movement between planes or the path that connects 2 or more planes. The 2 right angles moving down as the division of the One, existing in polarity to each other form a “range” as the distance between them, which can be measured in degrees, symbolizes the dual nature of the higher mind which contains both feminine and masculine aspects as the subconscious (feminine) and conscious (masculine) mind of the material body and outer plane, all of which vibrate at the same frequency as a range of vibration that structures both inner and outer material form to be of the same dynamic pattern on different scales, magnitude, and levels of complexity.

As human beings we are multidimensional in nature, just like all of the material world, except we also possess higher capacities of the mind to self-create by way of choice and will. We are creative beings always in the process of becoming by way of how we use our own mind to create ourselves. This process is always going on with or without our awareness. Our subconscious mind is the same mind we share with all of the natural world and the animal kingdom of which we are natural part of as a physical, mammalian body. We are born into the world with our subconscious mind fully active and developed, and are initially conditioned through a purely passive and receptive manner that’s much like a form of training produced through repetition of the same ideas and dynamics being played out in distinct emotional states.

Our formative conditioning, conducted in a purely unconscious and spontaneous manner, which becomes our “automated” mind-set and attitude, forms our mental paradigm and habituated emotional states that’s programmed to consistently play out the same dynamics as life dramas that tell a certain type of story. Whatever dynamics we’ve been trained to, we automatically see in others and all situations, have an immediate react to, engage in magnetically, and act to both initiate and cooperatively participate in by naturally playing a role in it. These programs, much like instinct in animals, run automatically without our direct awareness, and play out consistently shaping our reality and how we experience ourselves within that reality, which shapes our character and identity (self-image), both of which are naturally produced from unconscious habitual states.

The subconscious mind operates strictly out of memory, and speaks the “language” of emotions and direct experience. It gives birth to the self-conscious mind, which is what we call the “thinking mind”, or brain-oriented, frontal cortex aspect of the mind that begins fully developing at puberty when we begin “thinking for ourselves” (separate from our parents) and begin forming “internal dialogue” as self-talk that we identify with. The self-conscious aspect of the mind that’s capable of problem-solving and reasoning for itself, being born of the subconscious and body, forms its identity with or from the body and material world, which forms into what we call the “ego”.

The ego, being an identification of the spirit with the body and the material world, forgets its true identity as the soul that both produced and maintains it. This aspect of the mind, the “thinking by talking” aspect, has the ability to step outside of its own emotional, habitual tendencies, and become self-directed through its ability to decide between different options, and willfully act out those decisions, breaking habitual patterns and producing new experiences that become new memories for the subconscious mind to act out in an automatic fashion, producing new ways of being that alter the vibratory structure of its mental paradigm.

The subconscious mind is passive and receptive in nature, like animals, and doesn’t have the ability to think for itself as perceiving in new ways that are outside of its memory-oriented perception and habitual emotional states. The self-conscious mind is active, and not only acts as the “gatekeeper” for the subconscious, determining what’s passively accepted and allowed in to take hold, and what’s rejected or resisted and kept out. The self-conscious mind has the ability to reason and logically evaluate and judge ideas as being right and true, or wrong and an error. This is the “willful” aspect of the mind that has the ability to choose what it becomes a part of and what it doesn’t, and can override unconscious, automatic, habitual tendencies with new ideas that it intentionally acts out instead. Breaking old patterns and forming new ones, which when practiced repetitively over a period of time, become new habits as the programming for the subconscious mind to run in an automatic fashion.

The primary motive of the subconscious mind is self-preservation, achieved by maintaining habitual and familiar patterns. The primary motive of the self-conscious mind is to create itself as something new and better in an intentional and deliberate way. It seeks to become through its own willful actions that bring the habitual aspect of the subconscious mind under its control, by intentionally reprogramming it, training it to new behaviors. Because these two aspects of the mind are a part of the same mind as polar and complementary opposites, they interact in a completely natural fashion as being of the same nature. The subconscious mind, being driven by emotions and “thinking” in terms of direct experience as imaginary realities being played out in the mind as memory of various sorts, is what produces what we call our “ordinary thinking” that runs constantly like a broken record that plays the same memories, ideas, and dialogue over, and over, and over in a repetitive, somewhat sporadic, and habitual manner. This is what most people refer to when they use the term “thinking”.

Brain waves

Many people, or should I say most (few exceptions), live their entire life consumed with automatic thoughts that play out in a compulsive manner that keep them locked into the emotional states of those thoughts and memories. Most people are shaped and determined by their conditioning and the outer world of subjective experience that’s produced by their conditioned mindset. We become whatever dynamics and mindset we’re trained to and form habits out of. The subconscious mind naturally runs the conscious mind, forming habitual thinking that’s always playing memories of the past in the present, creating more experiences of the same nature, regenerating and multiplying more of the same type of memories. Through habitual psychological patterns we’re self-created, self-perpetuating, and self-sustaining. We only evolve according to our life conditions and how we’re programmed by others to be of the same nature and character, and produce more of the same type of dynamic patterns as emotional dramas that form our life’s story.

By realizing the natural tendencies of our mind, we have the ability to take control of ourselves and our life and discipline our thinking into concentrated ideas that we employ deliberately as a natural way of becoming self-determined. The self-conscious, active aspect of the mind has the ability to detach from its own habitual tendencies, view life from a detached perspective, and thereby realize it has the ability to bring the body under its control in order to serve it by accepting the ideas that it chooses to willfully acted out “through the body” in order to produce new types of experiences. While simultaneously creating new types of self-dialogue as the story we form out of the “meaning” of those experiences that serve as new memories associated to positive emotions, which when repeated, the subconscious mind will eventually habituate into automatic perceptions, emotional states, and behaviors.

We all have the ability through our higher capacity of choice and will to take hold of and begin determining our own self-development. We are not a product of our conditioning and genetic inheritance as we have been led to believe, but these merely form the basis of our primary personality and mental paradigm out of which we continue to grow and develop it. Our soul is in a constant state of evolving through its own ability to employ one aspect of itself to act on the other aspect, and together create itself in new ways by employing new qualities that form new characteristics.

Our subconscious mind, which can be equated to the DNA of our body, which also works out of memory and is strongly influenced by emotions, is completely programmable and trainable by the self-conscious mind through intentional use of the will to feed it new types of experiences that are of a certain emotional quality that re-inform it to be able to utilize new patterns in an automatic and natural way to regenerate the molecular structure of the body as a correspondence. In the mental plane, the active, willful, self-conscious mind, which is birthed by the subconscious mind as its active component, has the ability to “act on itself” to create and transform itself to whatever quality and character it wants and chooses to be.

Likewise, the higher mind, which exists on a higher, parallel plane, is also active as the “Higher Will”, and therefore acts on and through the subconscious mind in the material realm, in much the same way the self-conscious mind can. But the Higher Mind can’t directly communicate with the self-conscious mind, which is active also and exists fully within the material world, and so it communicates through the subconscious mind which reflects it onto the self-conscious mind as what we call intuition, which comes as “feelings” and our own internal voice being led by a different authority. We can know the difference between subconscious impulses and higher communication, because the subconscious doesn’t use “talking” to communicate, it uses emotional urges, desire, and internal images to control our own thinking. The messages communicated by the Higher Mind to the subconscious mind, are projected by the subconscious into the outer environment, which is the “sphere of awareness” of the self-conscious mind, where it then directs our attention onto it and we experience it intuitively as a form of coincidence, synchronicity, and self-realization.

Higher guidance comes through an inner voice that’s not “of us” in terms of our bodily self, and directs, guides, and informs us of things that can’t normally emerge out of our paradigm and normal way of thinking. It’s not emotionally driven or ego oriented, and it has no needs so there’s no effort to control, it comes as a parental mature voice that calmly and intelligently informs of us of other options and ways of looking at things that allow us to see things in a new way and make new decisions based on the information gleaned from it. It never acts to make decisions for us, as it never violates our choice and free will, but acts to give us new perspectives and realizations that we then willingly choose of our own volition.

Communication as information about things in our life that are playing out without our awareness also come through dreams, because dreams are a reality produced by the subconscious mind as the positive receptor of information that it absorbs from all around it and uses to produce a reality that’s highly symbolic and irrational in nature. So much of our guidance comes through dreams, yet like all subliminal communication, we have to be able to know the difference between energy absorbed and informed from our environment and others, and energy as information and guidance from our Higher Self. We can tell the difference through intuition, because dreams produced by random energies around us don’t affect us because we realize they’re not of us and don’t pertain to us. They seem somewhat foreign to us. Dreams as unconscious aspects of ourselves given life as a means of expressing and making us aware of them, only remind us of what we already know through deeper, more subtle feelings, whereas guidance that’s intuitive in nature, is intimate and felt as an inherent part of us that doesn’t stem from our current constitution or memory oriented past, but provides us with a new idea or direction that couldn’t be “self-produced” with our current make-up and life circumstances.

In order to begin working with our own mind to self-create, we have to bring our habitual, random thinking under control and learn how to intentionally focus our mind only on what we want to create. Concentrate on it without disruption from habitual thinking, and bring the concentrated idea into action of some sort. Our power lies in our ability to concentrate on chosen ideas and forming them in into realities in our imagination as the “experience” of them, while consistently associating positive emotions to them. This takes an idea and turns it into a reality as an emotional experience of it that replicates and imitates a memory. The subconscious mind of the body works out of memory to produce all of our behaviors and connect us with the same dynamic in everything around us.

By turning a desired idea into a full sensory (emotional) reality, we give the subconscious mind a pattern to act out producing an equivalent material effect or manifestation as an “actual” outer experience of the inner reality. In this way all manifestations are of the will as a combination of an idea as thoughts and feelings (sensations) that provide the template for outer manifestation as direct experiences of its own making.  As we think, feel, and imagine, we create, first inwardly as an imagined scenario that becomes our perceptual lens, then outwardly as our perception and natural activities. Any thought as an imagined reality that we dwell in with intensity, gives rise to an electromagnetic field that acts as an “attraction factor” that’s a form of gravitational field between us and the components in our environment that are a part of the same reality and can play a part in co-creating it as a shared experience.

In this way, the Higher Will, which manifests through us as thoughts and feelings produces and organizes all of our life experiences. What we call our will and our Higher Will, are actually the same thing, because one births and sustains the other, and all come out of the same nature. All contents of the subconscious and conscious minds are contained within the higher self, which is what births them in the lower, material realm. First by producing the subconscious personality as the accumulated memory of the soul that exists as “mental and emotional states” that have natural tendencies, temperament, and a disposition inherent in them, that births the conscious mind as its active component that has the ability to act on itself in a willful manner to create and transform itself through self-produced experiences that becomes a part of its soul memory.

All self-creation comes through masterful use of choice and will as our ability to think and decide for ourselves, then embody that idea, becoming one with it, and acting it out to produce an experience that we then get a sense of ourselves through, associate and identify with. As we shape our identity through self-produced experiences that extend beyond and outside of our conditioning, we transform ourselves at the soul level, which is the accumulation of all our life experiences as memory produced through both conscious and unconscious forms of self-expression and self-creation. We create ourselves by how we create our experiences. How we experience the events of our life, whether self-produced or other produced, comes through how we use our own mind to tell ourselves a story about it. We create both the character of the story, and the story as being told by the character through living it.

Our Creative Power lies in our Imagination – “Perception as an Interpretation is a Product of the Imagination”

Starstuff The imagination is the faculty of the mind that we use for creating reality as an internal experience. We first form our experiences by how we imagine them to give them meaning, which forms how we remember them, and is also used to recollect memories and think about them by replaying them in our mind. So we’re always in the process of creating memory by how we imagine our reality creating our personal experience of it by the story we tell about it, and then by associating our present reality to the memory of the past using it to shape the present to be about the same thing, forming it into the same type of story. The story we tell about things, which forms a kind of theme, is what gives our life consistency. Our life’s theme as the primary story we tell about things comes from how we’ve created all our experiences by telling a consistent story about them. This memory making ability as a form of multiplying and reproducing thematic experiences shaped by meaning and significance, are all done by how we imagine the outer world by shaping it into a consistent storyline.   As we go through our day, we are constantly forming associations to memories and using those associations to form similar interpretations of the present. The themes of the past become the program that utilizes our creative imagination with its primary pattern for creating a thematic reality and creating ourselves by identifying with our own story about things. As we tell a story about things, we get a sense of ourselves by way of that story, and form our identity out of it. Our identity and the story we act naturally to tell by how we interpret the events of our outer reality is a primary function of the imagination. Our imagination forms our perceptual lens and determines how we see things, and what we see “in” things. We can only see and make sense out of what matches our model, and can easily be turned into our story about things. Even when they actually have nothing to do with us or our story, we translate them to mean the same thing. In this way, we’re always shaping other people and events to be “like us”, through the story we tell about them which describes them using the same qualities as we poses.   finger paint Just as creative ideas are also received by and formed in the imagination, all memory is replayed and constantly being modified in the imagination. Each time we recall a memory as an association to the present, and use it to shape the present with the same meaning, we also modify the memory by adapting it to a new set of circumstances, and permanently alter it by doing so. While many of us believe memory is stagnate and fixed and that we remember them accurately, and that we recall them in the same way we formed them, in reality memory is constantly evolving through adaptation to the present situations, and our state of mind when applying it. Though we apply memories to an infinite number of new situations as a means of shaping them into congruent experiences, the theme of the memory remains intact and holds true no matter how we change the telling. So if the meaning of our memory is “I’m not loved”, and the memory becomes a story that provides evidence of this, then even when we use the same memory in the present to tell the same type of story about it, and we change “how” we tell it, it’ll still “mean” we’re not loved.   Our imagination is the primary creative faculty of the mind that’s used to create our personal experience of an outer, objective reality, making it into a subjective “inner reality” as a personalization of a universal theme. While we all share and have in common the outer reality as a neutral set of events that we experience, each individual sharing the same outer event is creating a unique experience of it by how they filter the event through their paradigm as their perceptual lens that forms it into an interpretation as a variation reshaped to tell a somewhat different story using it. Each person notices different things within the situation, places a different emphasis on them, and organizes them into a new pattern that uses only some of the elements that lend themselves to telling a certain kind of story. Any element that doesn’t match their storyline, isn’t “seen” (noticed), or is completely ignored, abstracting instead only what can be readily used as the elements of their life’s theme. Through our life’s theme, we form our life’s story, and we not only shape ourselves by way of that story, but shape everyone else by way of it also. Because of this “perceptual lens” that we look through to interpret the world, we shape everyone else to be “like us” and have the same qualities and character we have, which is necessary to keep telling our story about things, and is the story our mind is designed to tell by how it’s structured. It doesn’t have the perceptions necessary to tell a different kind of story. cosmic Because of this natural tendency of the human mind to create out of accumulated memories of it’s own making, the imagination, which also has the potential to be able to shape brand new perceptions of reality never experienced before, or as a unique interpretation of the present that’s not based on the past, it’s used instead to repeat the past and maintain redundant patterns that keep it locked into it’s own illusions. The imagination is usually used instead to simply relive whatever we’ve formed a memory of, whether through a living experience, or something we fantasized about, or imagined as thoughts being given to or taught to us by others, and while it still “creates” to a certain extent, it doesn’t create in the sense of being able to determine our own feelings, thoughts, and imaginings to perceive the present as dissociated from the past, and be able to create ourselves in new ways by learning how to tell new stories and evolve ourselves according to those stories.   Karma, which is living out of the same thematic forms of memories that recreate the same type of dynamics and behaviors over and over, prevents us from evolving in any measurable form. Instinct, as memory that produces automatic behaviors, is the product of the “lower mind” that we share with the animal kingdom, which lacks a higher mind and the ability to create in new and unique ways. Evolution within the animal / physical plane takes eons to produce the smallest of changes which usually come through a form of mutation, or freak accident. We as humans are born with a higher capacity to create ourselves and our reality by how we use the creative capacity of our imagination to break the patterns of memories and form whole new perceptions instead that serve to reshape and evolve our mental paradigm as accumulated memories to new and higher forms of experience. We are not bound to simply living out of our conditioning, but can “choose” to develop ourselves in an intentional and deliberate manner by simply choosing to begin telling a new kind of story that will require us to use latent qualities that will transform and evolve our character to new forms of expression. eye This creative ability of the mind is masterful use of our own imagination to let go of our attachment to our “story about things”, and our identity that formed as a result of our story, and make a conscious decision about the type of person we want to be instead, what qualities we’d have to embrace and bring into expression in order to do that, and what kind of story we would tell by how we acted and lived our life as a result. We can then practice forming experiences of ourselves “as” these qualities and employing these characteristics by imagining them and “acting them out”. Practicing “being that way” through a form of pretending and rehearsing where we get good at forming our new behaviors to the point where they start coming naturally. We can also set rules for ourselves through a form of moral code that we hold ourselves to that prevent us from repeating and continuing to live out of undesirable perceptions that form us according to them. One of the most standard practices for doing this is to recognize our negative traits and vices, and what positive trait and virtue we’d like to employ instead, and make a conscious effort to transform them using our will. Our will is our ability to first imagine something inwardly then act it out outwardly. In this way, we become self-aware and take the necessary steps to begin creating ourselves with full awareness of what we’re doing and how we’re being.   To employ any new idea, simply formulate first in your imagination creating a reality out of it, apply it to your everyday situation as an action or behavior of some sort, then imagine the situations that normally stimulated the “old behaviors and attitude”, and employ the “new behavior and attitude” in it’s place. Practice this over and over until it starts becoming natural and easy to do, while simultaneously practicing it in your daily life. By associating a new behavior or perception to the same stimulus or trigger, you don’t change anything or anyone else; you simply change your response to everyone and everything else. All change can only require you to do. When we require someone else to change in order for us to be able to, we sabotage ourselves, and remain stuck in the same reactive patterns. All change begins inwardly, by changing your self and your perception of things, which then become the template or pathway for outer expression as actual self-directed behaviors.   Dr. Linda Gadbois Mind-Body Integration Transformational Coaching Spiritual Sciences   About the author: Dr. Linda is a Spiritual Scientist and scholar of Hermetic Sciences and Ancient Wisdom traditions.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

Cosmic_creativity

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

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

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

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

Self-creation and Personal Transformation

 

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

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

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

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

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

Creating a Vision Board

 

Creating a Vision Board – “Visual Mapping of a Desired Reality as a Series of Goals”

Many of us have heard that any goal that’s written down has a greater chance of being actualized than one that’s not. And while this is true, the way the mind naturally creates realities is through imagining them as actual experiences. By creating a reality out of a goal, we form an internal representation as a conceptualization of that goal as a possibility, which makes it believable, while giving us a mental template for perceiving it and acting it out. Psychologically speaking, we can only “do” what we can first imagine. We are only capable of behaviors that we can “see ourselves” doing. Imagining an idea is a prerequisite for creating it as an outer experience.

When we form a sensory reality of a goal “as if” it’s real and already happening, we give the subconscious mind (responsible for all behaviors) a “program” as a form of virtual memory which it uses in place of actual memory and acts to automatically create it. When we envision a reality, we are setting a pattern as a request that says . . . give me more of this. We program the mind to seek it out and recognize what is of the same nature and can be used to create a similar experience in our environment. At the same time, when envisioning a desired reality, we sense ourselves in that experience, and identify with it. This not only hones our vibratory frequency to that reality as a state-of-mind, but also programs the mind to seek it out through a form of resonance. It magnetizes the idea internally as a guidance system that moves us towards its fulfillment, and draws the elements of its fulfillment to us.

Anytime we create an internal reality around an idea, we form a dynamic series of associations to that idea as a variety of experiences inherent in the potential the idea holds for us, that causes us to recognize ideas of the same nature, though they may appear different than we imagined, and can spawn a series of coincidences that when followed or investigated, form a pathway for creating more of the same type of experiences. You want to vary how you imagine a goal as a reality to ensure that you don’t get stuck on only one possibility for how it could show up. You want to release any attachments you have to needing it to be something specific, but rather concentrate on the feeling the idea represents, and allow a chain of association to arise out of it as a reality. Any formulated experience is based on the “feeling” it represents and has to come by way of whatever is available in your immediate environment as a way of manifesting in your everyday life. How it shows up will be based on the elements in near proximity to you that are of the same nature and can be used to co-create the same type of experience. Though it may vary in appearance, the feeling it gives you will be the same. If you get set on it needing to show up or appear in a specific way, you may miss it when it actually comes as a variation.

When setting a goal of any kind, notice the feeling associated with that goal, what the goal represents in terms of the type of experience it will give you, and then allow realities as possibilities to naturally emerge as a free-flowing chain of association that amplifies the feeling by creating more of it. Then, when the feeling is amplified, become aware of how it feels in your body, concentrate on it and seat it. This feeling as a distinct movement in your body that acts as a stimulus is not only your beacon, but also your homing device. It’s your means of recognizing in your environment what’s of the same nature and acts to stimulate you with that same feeling, which will lend itself naturally to co-create experiences that will express and give you more of that same feeling. The feeling (vibratory frequency) is the common denominator. The inner realities as images that invoke specific feelings are simply potentials of that feeling that help you recognize the idea in it’s various forms and as clothed in many different ways, making it appear different. An internal feeling creates a certain type of experience as a living reality in the external world.

As a general rule of thumb, whatever your vision as a goal of some kind is, should never involve other people, or require them to be apart of it in order to manifest it as a reality. The accomplishment of all goals should lie exclusively within your power to create. Because a goal of any kind ultimately represents a desired experience of some sort as a feeling, if you dream of having a certain type of experience with a specific person, and the true reality is that the experience they’ll bring you will be quite different than you imagine, then they are not of the same vibration and do not represent the fulfillment of your desire. You won’t be able to attract them with your vision. They won’t have a “role” in acting out the same type of reality with you. Instead, concentrate intensely on the feelings of the desired reality, and be as open as possible to whatever form it will come in. Release attachments to needing it to show up in only one form, and be open to completely new and often surprising alternatives.

To form a vision board, create an over-all plan for the coming year, and break that plan down into a series of goals as a step-by-step process necessary to create the over-all goal as a desired reality. Imagine the goals as experiences, and what image symbolizes or represents it, or what words or sayings are associated with it. Find pictures, words, sayings, or objects that symbolize all the goals necessary to create the ultimate outcome, and arrange them in an artistic and pleasing way on a piece of poster board or foam core. Then use it as a visual meditation, by imaging the ideas associated to the pictures, or by forming visions from the words and sayings. Whatever is on your board acts as the stimulus for a series of realities around the actualization of your goal as if you are experiencing it. As you meditate, form and associate very positive emotions around and towards your vision. Fall in love with it. As you imagine it as real and happening, stimulating very positive emotions in response to it, infuse it with love and a deep sense of gratitude and give thanks to the Universe for making it possible. Make this a regular, if not daily practice.

Creative Transformation
Transformation is a form of creation. It’s where we’re taking something that has already undergone the basic stages of creation in the initial sense, and continuing to create it by growing and evolving it into new and higher forms of itself.

All transformation requires the use of our creative ability through the fundamental capacities of choice and free will. We have to first decide what changes we want to make, or what aspects of ourselves we’re going to intentionally develop, form that idea in our imagination as a reality, imbue it with strong positive emotions, then discipline ourselves into new behaviors that actualize those changes as an outer reality. A reality of our own making that we brought about through our actions in and intentional and deliberate manner.

We are all born into this world with a kind of formula for creating inside of us. This formula exists as our dreams in terms of what we love and have an affinity for, and our strengths, talents and gifts that are usually apart of what we love, and weakness and fears that act to prevent us from obtaining what we dream of. Our dream for our life is our navigation system for our destiny as our life’s story as a theme or general idea we’re always naturally gravitating towards. Our strengths and talents are tools for creating the life we dream of, and our weaknesses and fears are what prevent us from achieving our life’s ambition. Love of an idea draws us into it, fear acts to stop us and prevent us from moving into it. These 3 aspects always exist in relationship to each other because they set the natural stage for the lessons that will facilitate our soul’s growth by way of them. Our dream is the overall pattern as a story we tell by living that exists in polarity of positive and negative aspects. Positive expands while negative contracts. One is creative, the other destructive. One facilitates our growth the other sabotages it. This equation as our internal programming shows us in very clear terms what aspects of our character we came here to develop in this lifetime.

Cosmic_creativity

Our interests and passions and what we have a natural affinity for as a way of life or our “life’s work” is what we came here to experience as a quality of consciousness that develops and strengthens the aspects necessary to achieve it in us as our character or identity. A certain character is necessary to tell a certain type of story as the natural expression (thoughts and behaviors) of that character. Our strengths are usually necessary to actualize our dream, while our weaknesses prevent us from actualizing it. We have to walk through or confront our fears and weaknesses in order to realize the dream for our life. Our life path is never easy, and always requires us to overcome our fears and weaknesses in order to obtain.

The only purpose of life is to set the stage necessary for us to grow ourselves by using our will to self-create. All growth only comes by striving, consistent effort, and determination. We have to willfully produce our growth through our actions which require us to access the aspects of ourselves necessary to overcome or bring back into balance the aspects being expressed as our weaknesses and fears. Weaknesses, which are always attached to fear, simply show us what we need to work on and what parts of ourselves we need to bring into harmony by counteracting them with the positive aspect of the same trait. Weaknesses are always the basis for addictions, most of which are destructive in nature. Addictions are formed as a coping device for our weaknesses, where whatever we are addicted to we lack the strength to overcome, and so it serves to control us.

creative-evolutionary-consciousness

All tendencies that form our behavior are natural forces that form whole patterns that exist in polarity as positive and constructive (active) aspects, and negative and destructive (preventative) aspects. All natural forces exist in polarity as opposite and complementary aspects necessary to stimulate each other and bring balance back to whatever is out of balance that prevents the harmonious expression of the whole or greater pattern that they’re both apart of. For example, we can only know ourselves as “courageous” when we encounter situations in our life that make us afraid and tempted to coward, and we choose instead to take affirmative action in spite of the fear. All experience is relative and formed out of how things exist in relationship and contrast to each other.

So weaknesses simply show us where imbalances exist in our psychological make-up and what aspects we need to access, call forth, and develop by using it to turn the weakness into a strength. What prevents us from living the life of our dreams, shows us the lesson we came here to learn. What we love and desire the most, is also what we have the greatest fears around. Our fears are always associated with our loves. Love and fear are opposite forces in the same idea. Love creates a feeling of resonance as desire and compels us towards what we love, while fear repels us and not only prevents us from moving into what we love, but drives us away from it. Both are centered on the same idea (vibration), one attracts and expands the other repels and contracts.

Our destiny, as what we love and feel an intimate connection with is the larger idea for our life that makes both our strengths and weaknesses apparent. We have to step into our fears in order to dissolve them using courage as the driving force behind love. Fear is designed to stop us from taking action and moving forward. Courage is recognizing the fear, gaining realization around it, and choosing to move forward in spite of the fear. Just the act of stepping forward into what we fear, acts to dissolve the fear. Once it no longer serves to hold us back and weaken us, it no longer exists as real for us. Fear, is in reality, an illusion.

Transcendence

“The only thing to fear is fear itself”

“It’s not what happens to us that matters, but how we react to what happens. What we allow to come through us because of what happens”

All transformation comes as a form of self-creation, whether consciously by actively pursuing our destiny, or unconsciously by what seems like the blow of fate. Whether we engage in our own development with full awareness and deliberate actions, or through crisis, where we experience it as happening “to us” through means beyond our control. All life crises are simply changes that force us to move in a new direction, take on a new role, or adapt our life to new conditions. When we willingly adapt to the changes, and realize them as the catalyst for growth, we can bring about intentional and deliberate change that uses the circumstances to develop and bring about new aspects of ourselves necessary to rise up and meet the challenges and triumph by way of them. When we see them as happening “to us” and resist them, we let them overwhelm us, feeling powerless in our own life to change them, and we succumb to them, which not only strengthens our weaknesses making them more prominent, but creates a whole new array of other ones as their offspring. The only thing we truly have control over in life . . . is ourselves. While we can’t change other people or the conditions and circumstances of our life, we can absolutely change how we experience them and how we respond in relationship with them to self-create by way of them.

While we are always undergoing a subtle form of transformation through the relationship we form and exist within with all of life, true creativity only comes through awareness, by forming an idea of what you want to create, then embodying the qualities and behaviors necessary to produce it as your reality of yourself. It’s always a question of whether or not you’re aware of how you’re acting in your own life through the story you tell yourself about things, or whether you remain unaware of how you’re actually acting to create yourself all the time by how you interact with life.

good and bad

Choice, like everything else, is polar in nature, just as our mind exists in a balance of conscious and subconscious states, we’re always either choosing consciously with awareness, or unconsciously without direct awareness through a reaction of some sort. While most of our choices are made in an automatic fashion through natural and immediate reactions of some sort, by becoming present in our lives and forming a awareness around what’s actually happening while recognizing what it stimulates in us that forms our “reactions”, we can become aware of our own tendencies and make new choices in their place that create new experiences.

All healing is a form of transformation as self-creation that brings what is acting in our lives (selves) to create at the unconscious level into conscious awareness. It comes when we shed light into the darkness and see what we couldn’t see before that equips us with the ability to act in ways that transform what was created in an unconscious manner into what’s created through a conscious choice and intentional actions. Personal transformation, also referred to as our second birth or spiritual awakening, is when we become awake and aware in our own life while realizing our power to create ourselves by way of our life circumstances, and begin exercising our higher capacities of choice, shaping that choice into a reality in our imagination, then willfully acting it out to create an experience of it. While resting in the realization . . . that we created it by simply using our mind in a new way.

New Years Resolution: Reflecting on your Life . . . . . . .

wormholes

Reflecting on your Life . . . . . . .
With the new year coming, and feeling the energetic effects of the winter solstice which is magnetic, withdrawing energy from the outer world back into itself for germination and incubation, we have a natural tendency to reflect back on our life as a kind of overview with highlights that evaluates our experiences, what was active and prevalent in our life, where we experienced growth and a sense of achievement, and where we failed to make the changes we vowed to the year before. As we self-reflect, we get a distinct feeling of what our life’s about and whether we are advancing and growing into something greater, or stagnating and staying stuck in redundant patterns that we can’t seem to get out of. We usually get a sense of where we’d like to be going, what kind of changes we have a desire and longing for, and our dreams that year by year we let slip away seemingly powerless to change it. Ultimately surrendering to a fate assigned to us through our duty and obligation to someone else’s dream.

When we withdraw our energy from the outer world and begin looking within as a means of recognizing ourselves, it’s as if we touch on our true self as our soul as a latent force within us waiting to be awakened. We access that part of us normally obscured with the clamoring demands of our everyday life which commands our soul and bullies us along a path that doesn’t seem to have any exits or crossroads, but formed by deep embankments that prevent our ultimate escape from the lifeless illusion that’s robbed us of our destiny by replacing with a dull form of fate. Each year, which passes by like a fleeting memory mostly forgotten, we sink deeper and deeper into the abyss of conventional life and the remnants of what was once our vision for life that enthralled us with an eager sense of curiosity and wonder, dims and begins fading into the distance, vague, elusive, and beyond recognition. Now, only memories that haunt us with what “could have been” are felt like a distant howl relentlessly begging our attention in a desperate attempt to resurrect the life we were born to live.

As we look back over our life the last year, or the last several years, to see how our life is taking form and progressing, we may long for change, sometimes to the point of desperation, then wallowing in a feeling of frustration and disappointment. Not in others who we imagine have stolen our fate, but in ourselves for being powerless to change it. Yet change is something that’s always within our power to create. We have only to be willing to do what it takes to bring the desired change about. All change is a form of transformation that requires a new vision for your life, and direct action on your part to produce it. In order for your life to change, you have to begin doing something different. You need to gain realization around what’s keeping you seemingly stuck in your current situation, and what aspects of your mind-set need to be transformed in order to produce the change naturally as a by-product or natural form of expression. Change in your life will only come through change in yourself because you are the creator of your life.

Longing for Change . . .
There’s a distinct tendency whenever we’re longing for change to take the attitude of thinking that it’s other people or our situation that needs to change or is what’s preventing us from changing, and that in order for us to change, they need to change. We then become invested and direct all our efforts into trying to figure out how to get them to change, and what we need to do to “make” them change. After several futile attempts at manipulating others to get them to do the change for us, we begin realizing that not only does it not produce the change we were after, but often makes it even worse because our attempts are met with resistance and a hostel reaction. This is because the people and situations in our lives are what established and serve to maintain the patterns of our life and only act to hold us firmly to those patterns. As we change, so does every aspect of our life. But the only change we can actually produce in the real sense is a change in ourselves as a form of intentional growth and development.

Reverse_Warrior

Growing Ourselves . . . .
In order to grow in our lives, we have to have an attitude of consistent and continuous improvement of some form. We have to have a vision for our life that serves as a navigational tool for “who” we’re becoming and what direction we’re intentionally moving our life in. We have to have a clear idea of what aspects of our life we want to change, what type of growth we want to produce, and how to form it as a congruent idea that produces harmony in all other areas of our life, and what the actual changes need to be. It’s not just behaviors we’re changing, but our attitude and mind-set that are producing the behaviors. Whatever we’ve created or exist in a natural relationship with up to this point, is because our paradigm produces it, supports it, and acts naturally to maintain it through the current behaviors being employed. Behavioral dynamics as actions and deeds are the end result of a whole psychology. They’re produced congruently out of feelings, thoughts, beliefs, emotional states, values, preferences, and so on, that all act together to express and create through congruent actions of some sort. To change the action, you have to change the paradigm as a mind-set that’s acting to produce it.

“Change your mind, change your life”
“Change your thoughts, and you change your experience”

So as the year comes to a close, and a new one is on the horizon, and you reflect back on your life, forming a sense of what you accomplished in terms of desired growth, rekindle your vision for your life. Recall what your vision is, and as you compare it to your current life, form clarity around what changes you need to produce to grow yourself into the person that will naturally and consistently produce the life you desire. We are all born with a vision inside of us as a calling that we consistently imagine as a reality that we steadily gravitate towards in our life. Our vision is a guidance system designed to lead us into telling a certain kind of story by how we live our life. We have everything we need inside us to live that story. Our dream reveals our potential as a destiny that requires us to grow ourselves in specific ways in order to produce it by living it. We have to become the person (character) that naturally tells that story by how we live our life. Who we become and how we’re being is always up to us.

So as you reform your vision for your life, ask yourself, how do you need to deliberately act on yourself to become the person necessary for living that vision as your life’s story? What are you currently doing in your life that’s preventing it, or contradicting it by serving to create something else? How would you need to change yourself to begin living out of a new idea for yourself? What beliefs do you hold about your current life that prevent you from being able to live the life you dream of? What values do you hold that keep you in the position you’re currently in? And how would you need to transform those to support your desired life? What story are you telling yourself that keeps you stuck in a situation that you long to leave or change all together?

You need to not only identify the desired change, but what is acting to create your current experience. What the psychological component is around the areas you need to transform, and how that will affect the other areas of your life. You need to begin gaining an in-depth clarity around your own psychological make-up, and work at the level of cause that’ll produce a natural effect as behaviors and experiences. You need to recognize and become aware of the emotional component driving the current behavior, and what emotional state will be necessary to drive the new behavior.

The Nature of Transformation . . .
Transformation is a holistic process that affects every aspect of your being and produces new “cause and effect” relationships that naturally and spontaneously produce new types of experiences and a new “sense of yourself” within those experiences that serve to transform your identity. As you create new experiences, you simultaneously identify with your own experiences, and they reformulate you to automatically produce more of the same type of experiences. While growth requires effort and deliberate action initially, once exercised repeatedly, it becomes natural behavior that we do automatically without having to think about it. This frees up the energy being expended to produce the new behaviors making it available for new growth and development.

Deliberate growth and development requires a vision as an ideal of us based on our dream for our life. Whatever our dream is we have to develop the necessary qualities and character traits to be able to tell that story in a natural and automatic fashion. It gives us a formula as our “character” that shows us how we need to act on ourselves to transform our current character into the desired character necessary to tell the story of our dream life. Life sets the stage necessary for growing ourselves through self-created experiences by way of our life conditions and circumstances. We know we’ve achieved the desired growth when we consistently produce the experiences as a story (of our dream) in an effortless and natural manner. Our constitution determines how we express to create our life experience. In order to change our outer experience, we have to change our inner constitution which is producing it. All growth is initiated from within as an imagined result or outcome, and then projected outward through actions as self-expression that produces an outer experience analogous to the inner.
