The Triune Nature of the Soul – How the Divine Soul can use the Lower Soul as a Vehicle and Instrument for Self-Development

The idea of “what the soul is” can be very confusing because most try to comprehend it from a purely materialistic form. Yet the soul itself, is not material in nature, though it’s the subtle field of energy that acts to create not only the material body in which it then inhabits, but also creates the entire material realm of what we call “reality” while in a physical body. All of the material reality as various separate forms that together comprise a larger unified form as a cohesive and coherent reality is accompanied by a field of subtle energy that acts to “in-form” it, and animates it through various creative processes and behaviors as the expression of certain attributes, qualities, and characteristics. This subtle field of holographic (structured) information that accompanies every physical form, is invisible in nature as what we call the “mind” or intelligence of the organism, and is what acts to give it life as an “entity” of some kind. This “intelligent field” is comprised of certain types of information as memory, and is what acts to sequence the DNA of the material body generating a physical form as its equivalent correspondence on a denser plane. All of what we call “reality” exists as multiple planes that act as correlating parallel dimensions that form a gradient scale that move from subtle to dense levels within the same frequency as a larger scale.

In all major spiritual traditions the idea of the soul is described in a similar manner through the concept of the Holy Trinity, the Monad of Sacred Geometry, or the primal Law of Three-in-One. This threefold nature of the soul is the basis for all analogies describing the threefold nature of the mind and the individual produced by the mind. In all spiritual traditions the soul and mind are considered the same thing, although the mind can also be seen as the vehicle or instrument of the soul. It’s only in modern times that we’ve attempted to explain everything from a material basis as being “causal in nature” while presenting the mind as being something that the brain (body) gives rise to and is somehow mysteriously capable of producing. Whenever we look at stuff through a purely material perspective we take an attitude of separating everything into parts, and creating a whole out of the parts, which in reality are unified in nature and a part of the same thing (holographic). The entire material world exists as a unification and expression of the spiritual realm of pure energy and consciousness, which acts to provide the intelligent matrix as a substratum out of which it arises and is animated through a form of mass consciousness.

The Psyche

The soul is described in most traditions as an “individual entity” that’s distinct and a part from the body, and is what serves to organize, form, and give life to the body. It produces life through the “Principle of Life” that operates as vibration that we experience as feelings, emotions, thoughts, and activity. It’s described as the incorporeal essence of a living sentient being – capable of feeling, sensing, perceiving, and experiencing. The soul is often described as the “psyche” or the mind as the place where our thoughts come from. The soul and the butterfly were given the same name in ancient traditions, which is the center of thought, feeling, and motivation, consciously and unconsciously directing the body’s reaction to its physical and social environment. Psychology, a field of science that studies the mind, soul, and spirit, is derived from the Greek term of “Psyche” used to describe the soul.

Modern day psychology is a science of mind and behavior, which has unfortunately begun moving towards eliminating the very source of its own study as a means of following suite with other material sciences in order to be accepted as a valid and credible field of science. Many other traditions become much more lucid with the soul being equivalent to “breath” or “air” (atmosphere in which life exists) in the Elements as the combination of Fire (will) and Water (feeling) as an invisible power that animates the material world through a form of Divine Inspiration, which comes through a Divine Voice as the “Word of God”, Spirit, or Holy Ghost. The essence that underlies our existence as the third person in the Trinity referred to as the Holy Ghost, is the Etheric Body (phantom-like hologram) as the psyche in form that provides the blueprint for organizing and producing the physical body as an exact replica or double.

For practical purposes we can create a “model” of the threefold nature of the soul-mind in order to gain an understanding of how it operates, which is necessary in order to consciously utilize it to create. While we commonly hear sayings like “we’re not a body having a soul experience, we’re a soul having a body experience”, many don’t know what this means in the most basic sense of actually experiencing it that way, or, more importantly, what it means to be a “soul within a body”. This is largely due to the fact that while we have a tendency to continuously separate them, the body is an aspect of and produced by the Higher Soul as it’s material equivalent that serves as a temple, vehicle, and instrument for the Higher Soul to create within the lower and denser material plane. In order to “work” (create) within a given plane, you have to create and exist within the conditions of that plane and work by way of the laws that govern it. The true soul exists on several planes above the physical plane, and has to undergo a transformative process as multiple stages of a step-down process of transduction in order to fully manifest as a body within the material plane. The highest level of the soul, which exists on an entirely different plane, is usually referred to as the Higher Self or God, and the “middle soul” which acts as a medium between the higher and the lower is the human soul of our individuality, and the lower soul is the etheric body that forms the physical body as a member of the collective unconscious of the animal kingdom.

The mind, without a physical body, doesn’t fully exist within the material plane as an actual entity capable of taking action and creating in a deliberate manner, and instead can only act to “influence” other minds within physical forms. In order to exist and create within the lower, denser realms, the Higher Soul of pure energy must fashion and inhabit or energetically bond with a body. It must take on a physical form that’s of the same nature and likeness (frequency) as it is. It acts to bond with the DNA that’s of the “same potential” as it is in terms of memory that will naturally produce certain types of experiences as the means of self-expression and self-creation. The lower soul of the etheric/physical body possesses the same “mind” of the middle (higher) soul in its dual components, and shares the same type of personality, identity, and karma as the genetic makeup and ancestral heredity (memories of our ancestors) of the body.

The Higher Soul, which is commonly called the “Higher Self”, never fully manifests within the material plane of form, but rather projects into it by taking on dual aspects necessary for producing both a visible and invisible component of the same thing. The mind first aligns with (resonates) and merges into (sympathetic induction) the DNA of an equivalent nature (same frequency) and kind, infusing it with the life-force energy that sequences and formulates it with a self-organizing mechanism inherent in vibration itself as a holographic model (etheric body) or paradigm (field of information organized into a thematic pattern).

The Lower Soul of the Subconscious Mind

The soul, like the DNA of the body is comprised of “memory” as the information that “in-forms it” and gives it the qualities, characteristics, temperament, disposition, and tendencies it naturally exhibits as normal perceptions and behaviors. The body’s DNA carries with it the memory of ancestors that are aligned with the same nature as the Higher Soul, which is what caused the soul to resonate with it. The Higher Soul forms energetic sympathy with the same “type of soul” in the lower realms. In the lower, material realm, the soul exists as the subconscious aspect of the mind that we share with all of the animal kingdom that has a sentient nature, and thinks and acts from a purely unconscious state as instinctual behaviors.

The lower soul of the body operates strictly out of memory of various sorts that provides it with the means for producing more of the same type of behaviors produced out of the same type of perceptions. For human beings this comes as a form of “tribal mentality” where we exist purely as a part of a greater whole of shared consciousness that has no individuality apart from the tribe. When living out of our lower nature, equivalent to that of an animal, we’re shaped purely through our conditioning and whatever perceptual models and behaviors we’ve been trained to by participating in them. When living out of a predominately unconscious state, we simply live out of the past as a means of perceiving and interpreting the present to mean the same thing as the past, and forming the same responses and behaviors, creating the future to be of the same nature as the past. In this sense we become identified with our body and lower nature, and fail to realize our true identity as a higher, divine being with creative abilities, and never learn how to use our conscious mind and ability to think, reason, and decide for ourselves. When this happens, we fall into a primary state of unawareness, become totally identified with our past conditioning and our physical existence, and lose contact with our Higher-Self as our true identity and ultimate potential, and we become lost in what is in reality an illusion of our own making.

When we come to realize instead that there is a higher aspect of ourselves, of our mind and soul, and learn to quit identifying with our past by continuing to live out the story we created out of it in the present as the means creating our reality and “sense of ourselves” as fully identified with our body and life circumstances, we can begin to realize that the body as the subconscious mind, is the “creative powerhouse” of the material plane and can be used skillfully to create in an intentional and deliberate manner. If we simply detach from our identification with it and the past, and observe how we can use our mind to create our reality, we can learn how to use it in a like manner to create in a deliberate and precise way. We can come to realize that we don’t have to keep dwelling in the past as a means of experiencing the present by playing the same group of memories over and over in our mind, and we begin consciously choosing “how we want to be” instead by recognizing our true nature. We can let go of our attachments to the past and our beliefs about things and remain fully aware instead, and in that awareness decide in every moment what we choose to create as a true expression of who we actually are. We can decide what kind of story we want to tell and what kind of person we’ll become as a result of that story.

Conscious Self-Creation and Destiny

In order to create anything in a conscious manner you have to first form a clear idea of what it is you’re creating. You have to do a form of “soul searching” where you begin to sense who you really are and who you want to become. We’re all born with a “story” imprinted within us as the dream for our life. This story requires certain aspects of us as qualities and characteristics to be actively employed in order to “tell” it by living it. The Higher Soul comes into the physical world in order to create itself through a developmental process of growth and self-expression. Whatever memories we’ve accumulated up to this point merely act as the foundation for continued growth. Some potential is active and fully expressing, while others remain dormant and are not being actively utilized or developed. Our dream as the story we’re imprinted with at the soul level (human/middle soul) that we came here to tell, requires us to transform what qualities and aspects of ourselves are active and which ones are passive.

Often, in order to obtain our dream and bring into active expression latent aspects of ourselves requires us to move into and resolve some of our greatest fears. These fears are what have prevented us from actively moving forward in our life pursuing our dream, and have kept us from becoming empowered in our own process of self-creation. All of our limitations that aren’t “actual” are the result of a fear that we’ve built a belief around as a story we tell ourselves about why we can’t do something. When we embody a sense of courage and employ a more neutral and open mindset, and we decide to move ahead in spite of our fears, the fears themselves steadily dissolve and we come to realize there was never really anything to fear. It was all something we made up in our imagination that was only acting to hold us back.

Creating your Ideal – your Soul’s Highest Potential

The first step to conscious self-creation by embodying your true identity as the creator of your own reality, is to develop a well-defined idea of yourself as your “ideal self”. This is where you create yourself according to your highest potential, and to be the best person you can be. Where you choose to actively employ your best traits, utilize your gifts and talents, and decide with detailed accuracy the type of story you’re going to tell by how you live your life. You create a model as a moral code of conduct that you hold yourself to in making all of your moment by moment decisions. You decide which qualities you want to develop into strengths and use to express and create, and you do so in an intentional manner as a daily practice. You constantly review this ideal, concentrate on it, imagine yourself being that way in different situations as a form of “mental rehearsal”, and actively practice “being that way” in a constant and consistent fashion. Like all creation which comes from habitual behaviors and perceptions, you have to practice something for an extended period of time until it becomes a natural part of you that’s automatic in nature.

Knowing that the subconscious mind works out of memory as an experience of reality as the basis for creating more realities that produce more of the same type of experiences, we know that the way to provide it with a new template for creating is to create the desired trait or reality as an “imagined experience”. It’s not about intellectually conceptualizing an idea in a theoretical and detached manner as a form of command or order, but rather creating it as an actual experience with full sensory enhancement and intense feelings, and with emotions that make it very desirable and compelling. You create it in your mind “as if it’s happening” and you’re “in the experience of it”, having it. You have to convert all ideas you want to manifest into the language of the subconscious, which is memory as an actual experience that has strong emotions connected to it.

We say in psychology that you can “only do what you can first imagine or see yourself doing”. This is because it’s the subconscious mind that does the “doing”. Anytime you want to create an experience of reality that doesn’t already exist, you have to first create it as an imaginary experience, feel and sense yourself “in it” doing it. You have to set the stage as the necessary conditions and possible set of circumstances in which it would naturally occur, and then create the experience just like you want it to go in your mind’s eye, while forming sensory awareness of it in very well-defined terms. Place yourself in the ideal situation then direct and develop it by asking . . . what are you seeing? Hearing? What are you feeling or touching? Smelling? Tasting? And what are you telling yourself about it? Create it in a way that stimulates and produces very positive emotions. Then dwell heavily in the feeling-emotional aspect of it, amplifying it to make it intense (calibrate yourself to that vibration). This sets the frequency as a thematic pattern in our mind that acts also to organize the outer environment into the same pattern. Whatever we vibrate we not only connect to in our environment, but we actually act to orchestrate and recompose our environment according to the same pattern as a larger theme necessary for the event to naturally take place.

The subconscious mind is motivated by pleasure and pain. It moves into and towards pleasure, seeking it out, and out of and away from pain, avoiding it at all costs. You have to always remove any sense of pain or conflict around an idea in order to use the subconscious to deliberately create it. If you associate pain of any kind to an idea, you’ll be acting to repel it instead of attracting it. As you imagine the idea and develop it in sensory terms while feeling very positive emotions because of the experience, play it over and over in your mind until you can recall it instantly in its complete form, just like an actual memory. Concentrate your attention on it in a redundant, daydreaming fashion just like you do other memories. Then create more imaginary experiences of the same idea, playing them over and over until they can be recollected in their whole-form instantly, and play it out in your mind in a habitual and automatic fashion like your normal memories do.

All realities as sensory experience formed into a memory, produce their own electromagnetic field as a vibratory frequency. All vibratory frequencies as an electromagnetic field has a self-organizing mechanism that organizes matter into patterns through a process of activating and deactivating certain properties, forming a new pattern, and through attraction and repulsion. This basic law of vibration works on all scales and levels existence, whether in making a single entity, scenario, or creating a greater reality. As we think by replaying memories, we keep ourselves tuned to the frequency of those thoughts, forming a gravitational field between us and the outer elements of the same type of reality. Our imagined thoughts as memories of some form become a self-fulfilling prophecy. Thoughts formed into ideas as possible realities are the creative power of the mind to shape matter. In this way the Higher Soul of the human (self-conscious) mind, instead of identifying itself “as” the lower mind, and creating unconsciously through a form of instinct and conditioning, can learn how to utilize the lower subconscious mind to create itself in an intentional and deliberate manner and impose a direction on its destiny by evolving itself to a higher level of consciousness.

The Self-Conscious Mind, the False Ego, and the most Basic Form of Ignorance

What we call the “mind” is three-fold in nature, as three aspects that systematically birth each other as outgrowths, all of which perform different functions as a unified being within a multi-dimensional reality. These three aspects of the mind are what we call the Higher-mind, the lower or subconscious mind, and the self-conscious or conscious mind. The Higher mind exists in a primary unified state and contains both lower aspects of the mind in their potential state. The Higher Conscious acts to birth the subconscious mind as it descends into material reality as the intelligence that constructs and then inhabits the body, which then births the self-conscious mind as a natural growth and development process. We are born into life with a subconscious mind that contains the latent potential of the self-conscious mind, which doesn’t begin forming until the age of seven or eight, and becomes fully active between fourteen and twenty eight. The self-conscious mind is what most think of when we use the term “mind”, and is the brain (grey matter) consciousness as the “thinking mind” that thinks in verbal terms as our internal dialogue. The conscious mind, for the most part remains almost completely unaware of the subconscious mind, which thinks in “experiential” terms as imaginary, sensory realities, and is the aspect of the mind that is fully awake throughout the entire life span of the body and operates all the biological systems of the body, without ever resting, sleeping, or turning off, unlike the conscious mind. The self-conscious mind is the brain aspect of the mind that’s fully identified with the body and forms our basic identity as what we call our “false ego”, and is what forms the most basic form of ignorance as a form of mis-identification. It’s self-aware in terms of body image and it’s perception of the outer world, and thinks almost exclusively in materialistic terms, but remains predominately unaware of the subconscious mind as its true nature and what serves to sustain it. The subconscious mind, which is the primal consciousness that fully manages the body while interacting energetically with the outer environment, is what structures and develops the brain and births the brain-consciousness giving it life, yet the conscious mind fails to recognize this fact because it doesn’t have a direct awareness of the subconscious mind, and so perceives itself as being independent of both the subconscious and higher consciousness of the soul. This aspect of the mind, being of the brain, is mortal and temporary in nature, because it’s identified with and dependent on the brain as an organ of the body, existing only as a concept of itself “as” the body, and so it “dies” with the body. This is the aspect of the mind that’s often referred to as the “ego”, when it should more accurately be called the “false ego”, because the soul develops and bonds itself to whatever it associates and identifies with, and is not only what spawns the body-brain identification, but has developed and formed through many identities and multiple lifetimes. Just as the subconscious mind is the same aspect of the mind we share with the plant and animal kingdom as a form of mass, shared, or collective unconsciousness, in humans, we have a higher capacity through the conscious mind that imbues us with the ability to shape our own identity by creating an “image” of ourselves, and thereby determining our own destiny as a form of co-creation within the material world. Through this ability to self-create and become an individual, we also form a part of the mass or shared consciousness of the creative, spiritual realm. Ignorance is formed from the basic sense of a lack of awareness that doesn’t comprehend its other, immortal aspects, and perceives itself instead as independent of its subtle, spiritual, or unconscious aspects which actually served to create it by birthing it, and sustain it throughout its lifetime. When we identify with our body and material existence through a basic form of a lack of awareness, we perceive death as an annihilation of the “self”, because it’s the death of our brain consciousness of the body as our outer awareness. If however we recognize the other aspects of ourselves that are subtle and subliminal in nature, and we identify with our spiritual nature that created and gives life to our body, we become immortal because this aspect of our consciousness is actually independent of the body and simply exits and “sheds” the body, which is what causes it to die. The body is only “alive” (operating as a biologically active system) when the soul is inhabiting it. The subconscious is birthed into the material body by the higher consciousness (from a purely spiritual plane), and is the immortal aspect of the self, and what forms the “life” of the body, and expresses through the body in a completely natural and automatic fashion as the most prominent use of will, that’s the natural expression of the Higher Will, being acted out without resistance of any kind, and is what establishes the personality of the body as the accumulated experiences acquired through various identities from previous lifetimes, as the souls “karma” that forms the “paradigm” of the mind and gives it all of its natural perceptions and tendencies. Karma is the natural paradigm of the soul as the mind (vibratory frequency), and forms our natural disposition, temperament, talents and developed abilities, tendencies, thematic perceptions, and natural behaviors as our personality, which are reactivated, brought out and expressed through our formative conditioning that sets the outer stage and mental state to continue creating our life through the same patterns as we left off in the previous life. The soul develops through accumulated experiences (which are all self-created) through many perspectives and life conditions, circumstances, and situations, that are integrated and harmonized to modify, develop, and reform the paradigm of the mind, and becomes the memory we continue living out of as a means of creating ourselves by way of our own self-created experiences (interpretations) that form the evolutionary growth of our soul as our eternal and immortal self. The conscious mind is simply the identity formed and taken on in this lifetime as a body within a certain set of conditions and circumstances that form the basis for our life situations, which we use to create our experiences out of. The conscious mind is the “material mind” in terms of its limited awareness (located within space and time) as the body. When it “wakes up” and recognizes that it has multiple aspects as states of being, and the subtle, intuitive communication as feelings and mental impressions coming from an internal and invisible realm of pure consciousness that its always engaged in “talking to and with”, it can then choose to align itself with its “whole self” as the expression of the divine will that created it. Through alignment with all aspects of ourselves we can become aware of why we’re the way we are in terms of our karma as tendencies and psychological patterns that we’re always in the process of repeating, we can act in our own life to resolve patterns by first becoming aware of them, gaining self-realization around them as our own creation, and then act willfully to transform perceptions, direct our thoughts and become conscious of our behaviors, in order to break old patterns, and form new ones that are more creative, productive, and healthy. Through self-awareness and active use of our will, we can become conscious creators and act to facilitate our souls growth in an intentional and deliberate manner, instead of continuing to live out unconscious patterns that are degrading to the souls evolution and keep us attached to lower forms of expression that ultimately prevent us from ascending to higher levels of self-expression. The conscious mind, through its current identity has the power of choice and free will to actively make changes and reprogram the subconscious mind by embodying new qualities that create new types of experiences of itself, but of course it has to realize it has this ability and begin actively participating in its own development instead of living its life in a predominantly unconscious, disconnected and haphazard manner.

The Spiritual Nature of the Heart – The Seat of the Lower Soul

While many perceive the heart as being the “spiritual center” of the body and the aspect where divine knowledge is received and processed by the body, this is not an entirely accurate model, and is the result of misinterpretation of various sorts. In order to look at this from a different model, that will allow us to see it in a new way, the spiritual body is laid out as an energetic hierarchy of “spiritual centers” that acts as an operational system for bringing pure consciousness into the material body, giving it life, while animating it with a personality. This 7-fold hierarchy, is further broke down into an upper triad and a lower triad, joined together by the heart-center. It’s also looked at as the upper triad being of the spirit-mind, and the lower tetrad (4) being of the material body, of which the heart is included as the highest aspect of our lower nature. The heart represents the horizontal plane of the material reality, and the mind (the upper 3) as the vertical plane in which divine energy as consciousness flows down from “above”, entering the body through the three upper centers of the head and brain, which controls the body through the nervous system and the endocrine system. When these two (mind and body) intersect as a vertical and horizontal flow of intelligent energy, it forms a cross representing equilibrium as a unified being that’s both mind and body, divine and animal.

The 3 upper chakras represent the Supernal as the trinity or 3-fold nature of the mind and consciousness as a gradient between higher and lower aspects of itself. It exists in its original state as 3-fold in nature, and is not manifest or formed in the physical sense (which is represented by 4, or the cube), but acts to create an “inner state” that becomes the basis for the outer physical equivalent. Consciousness is not “of the brain”, but rather operates the brain as the regulatory organ of the body. This trinity as a triad is based purely on thought and imagination which forms the basis as a conceptualization or internal representation that provides the template for physical manifestation as its outer expression. The mind is the faculty in which energy as intelligence is shaped into an image as the perceptual model or vibratory frequency that’s superimposed over the outer world (looked through), producing a corresponding outer expression.

Intelligence as qualities of consciousness in their purely potential state, enter the body through the crown chakra as the active component, that’s received by the Pineal as the passive receptor, and formed into an astral image in the imagination, which is then developed into an applicable idea by continuing to think about it. Our inner voice thinks and speaks it into reality by stimulating and informing the body. Our thoughts as imagined ideas, operate the nervous system through electrical impulses as a form of communication where the mind actually operates the body through the nervous system of the spine, stimulating the endocrine system which produces hormones as the chemical equivalent of our thoughts, that both alter the body’s vibratory-conscious state, and produce internal biological operations and natural behaviors that are all a part of the same idea. And through this creative process, bring the invisible imagined idea into existence as a physical correspondence.

vitruvian man

The heart center, the first lower energy center to receive the formulated idea as an imagined thought, absorbs the electrical impulses, altering the chemistry of the blood, which circulates throughout the body modifying and regulating the state of all the material organs to vibrate at the same rate, while also connecting us to that idea in the outside world. It’s through the heart that we both send and receive information of a sensory nature. By altering the chemistry of the blood through electrical impulses, we alter the state and health of the entire body. The adrenals produce the emotions of the thought, the kidneys act as a filtering system, and the sexual organs energize and give birth to the idea as a living offspring.

The heart is the seat of the soul for the “lower soul”, associated with material reality and the animal body. It’s through the heart that we radiate and absorb information from and about our physical environment that’s sensory in nature, and driven by the sexual impulse, which regulates its intensity. Emotions are the language of the material realm that act to regulate our lower nature through automatic behaviors that require “no thought” to produce. All emotional energy which is being projected by everything around us is received into the body through the heart, where the information is separated into whatever is pertinent to every aspect in producing an experience of it, then distributed to that organ or aspect for processing and integration as a means of adjusting the state of the body to match its environment. Out of literally billions of bits of information being received continuously from the environment at any given moment, only 8 to 40 bits is sent to the brain for sensory processing and decoding, while the rest is downloaded into the body as “intuition”. It’s through our “gut feeling” that we accurately read and understand the outside world.

It’s not through our thoughts that we connect with the outside world, but rather through feeling sensations and emotions. On the physical plane, which is governed by our subconscious mind and lower, instinctual nature, we are being “operated“ in a largely instinctual fashion to behave according to the emotions we’re experiencing without actually thinking (reasoning) or consciously making a decision. Anytime we’re in our emotions as a reactive state, or being “charged”, we’re predominately unconscious and our emotions take control and begin directing and determining our thoughts, which is our creative power.

The seat of the human soul, as our personal and individual soul, lies in the 5th chakra, which functions as our voice, which in the silent mode is “thought”, and in its outer mode is speaking and talking. What we speak, is a reflection of our inner thoughts and is the willful action that serves to call forth the reality of our thoughts by organizing the elements of the outer environment to match our inner imaginings. Thought is vibration as pure consciousness that’s formed into an idea through the imagination, which adapts it to individual mind, modifying it, and becomes their own personal thoughts. Our thoughts come as both an inner hearing or knowing and as an image or vision. What we picture and see in our minds eye, we think about by defining, assigning attributes and meaning, explaining through reasoning, describing as a form of observing, and conforming it in a way that can be applied meaningfully to our everyday life in order to self-create by way of them. We first create (develop) an idea internally by thinking about it, as an internal dialogue that shapes and conforms it, then by speaking it, transmitting that same idea to others and the outside world, forming it in their minds as well, as a way of initiating, eliciting cooperation and attracting it as a joint reality and outer experience of what originates as an internal experience.

The heart is the receptor for material information, and the Pineal is the passive receptor for spiritual, conscious information that’s not born of the material realm, but comes in intact and whole. Thought and sensory feeling, is when pure thought moves down into the material realm of the body, where it stimulates and produces the sensory-emotional equivalent, which is necessary to attract and transmit and produce the behaviors for manifesting it as an actual outer experience. In the material realm, thought and emotion are always married as masculine and feminine aspects of each other, and are always equivalent as complementary opposites. One influences and produces the other, and one is always the natural response of the other in a cause and effect relationship. The only question is, which one is active and therefore dominant, and which one is non-active and therefore acting as the passive vehicle for the other. Thoughts are either producing the emotions that are of the same nature, or emotions are producing thoughts of the same nature. Our mind is either operating our body, or our body is operating our mind. In the ideal situation, this moves back and forth based on what is most appropriate and needed for adjustment of our overall being of which they’re both a part, yet the mind should always be in constant control of utilizing this regulatory process by using the body as a passive receptor for information obtained from the environment, by rendering itself passive to the body, or by allowing instinct as immediate and automatic reaction of an emotional nature to act as a means of protecting and preserving the body in a healthy state.

Just as the heart connects and regulates the flow of information from both the upper and lower in a harmonious fashion, the human soul connects and acts as a medium for the higher soul (self) and the lower soul (animal), and formulates itself out of the combination. The individual soul draws down archetypal identities from the universal soul as a means for shaping itself as an individual that’s unique from everyone else and self-determined, while also being able to draw on the personality of the lower self, which is emotional in nature and lacks individuality and sees itself as part of a greater whole in which it’s just like everybody else (the herd mentality). The lower self operates out of conformity that robs us of our individuality and ability to willfully self-create by investing us in the group mind of mass consciousness of an animal like nature where we’re merely a part of a species driven by instinct regulated by emotions. We fall prey to automated behavior that are self-creative and come without thought or reasoning.

Likewise, there are two kinds of intuition; one of the material plane where we receive information “about” the material plane as a whole, which is received and distributed through the heart, and of the spiritual plane that contains higher knowledge of things not of the material plane, which is summarized through the throat and comes as “thoughts of a universal nature” (non-personal). While many think intuition is a function of the Pineal, this isn’t entirely accurate, the Pineal receives ideas as imagery, but thought as our inner hearing metabolizes and discerns what’s received, vibrating it outwardly. Intuition is of a unified nature, which comes by developing our intuition in a conscious manner, and acts to identify the spiritual component that underlies and acts to motivate material reality as seeing into its inner nature, and knowing it as it actually is, rather than as it appears outwardly. Higher forms of intuition come as a marriage of mind and heart.

The Law of the Triad – Resonance, Sympathetic Induction, and Coherence

The world is a vast soup of energy that’s always stimulating and interacting with itself in others. Each entity or material body contains energy and is stimulating – emanating or putting off a charge – that’s being received by everything around it that contains the same type of charge and therefore “can” receive it, while simultaneously being stimulated by everything around it that’s of the same vibration. Every energy body, which always accompanies a material body, is what we could call “charged” with certain vibrations as attributes and qualities of a distinct frequency, that are always interacting with that same frequency in everything else. We are only capable of being stimulated and our state altered by other energy bodies that are of the same frequency as we are. An outside stimulus can only activate and awaken in us what’s there to begin with. Energies that are of a different frequency than we are, operate out of a different state, and have little or no real affect on us. While they’re still a part of our environment in the typical sense, we view them objectively without any kind of reaction to them. In other words we don’t relate to them and don’t enter into a natural relationship with them.

All energy fields are comprised of three basic forces – active, passive, and neutral. Neutral is the balanced harmony of the active and passive. The active force is masculine, and the passive force feminine. The masculine initiates activity and the feminine responds to that activity in a complementary manner. The active force enters into and activates the passive, bringing it into expression and they exist in the same state as a unified whole or “One” as vibrating to the same frequency. The “charge” of any energy field is based on what elements of its entire energetic make-up are in an active state. Activity, similar to friction and heat, emanates, projects and transmits the active quality into the space around it, infusing it. This active force readily moves into and stimulates that same force in anything within near proximity that possesses that same quality, and can therefore be stimulated by it. The stimulating affect, activates the same quality and calls it forth into outer expression, altering the persons state to vibrate at the same rate. The active force in another awakens the same passive force in us. The passive is capable of receiving the active force, bringing it to life in us. It can only stimulate in anything else the same “quality of consciousness” that it possesses. It can’t awaken what doesn’t exist to be awakened. We don’t ever give people traits they don’t already possess; we simply bring them out in them. You can’t bring out in somebody what’s not there to bring out.

meditating

Objects become charged through induction or sympathetic resonance. As forces are activated in us it reformulates a new pattern as a shift in vibration, changing our state of mind, and we begin vibrating in harmony with them, forming coherence. Our state, whether we realize it or not, is constantly undergoing adjustments based on the energetic interaction going on as a form of relationship we exist in with everything else. We’re affected by it, and it’s affected by us. We’re always blending into and taking on the energetic properties of everything around us. While this happens most prominently in our immediate environment, it also works throughout the larger energetic field of mass consciousness of which we are all apart of, and we connect with those of the same vibratory frequency as we are through a shared consciousness. This connection, through the same laws of resonance and induction, form a gravitational field between us and we begin steadily moving towards each other.

Whatever quality of consciousness we’re charged with to begin with as our soul’s essence and personality, becomes the vibratory basis out of which we form our initial relationships with everything else. Our consciousness as our mental state, determines what we feel a connection to, resonate with, have a natural interest in, and who and what we exist in natural relationships with and gravitate towards throughout our life. Because this vibratory consciousness operates at the subconscious level, and is happening spontaneously all the time, we often live our whole life out of the same frequency, entering into relationships of various sorts only with those of the same mind-set and attitude as we are. This natural process of polarization and resonance can only be significantly altered through conscious use of the mind. While the mind has the ability to control the activities of energetic interactions, because, of course, it exists on the same energetic plane as an energy field, and so works by way of the same laws, we have to know how to operate it in order to consciously create with it. The only way we can begin working with this energetic process is by becoming aware of it, and learning how to use our mind to control and direct energy. For this simple fact, we can only truly grow energetically by learning to manage our own energy field as our state of mind, and work to change our vibratory frequency as our quality of consciousness that’s known through our feelings, thoughts, emotions, moods, and actions.

The Triad

Because spiritual (energetic) growth requires conscious abilities and creative use of our will to discipline the normal activities of our subconscious mind which is always working in an unconscious and automatic fashion without our direct awareness, it only comes by way of deliberate action from an awakened state. We have to become aware of what’s always going on at the subconscious level, come to understand the nature of our own mind, and utilize our ability to choose and willfully act out new ways of being. By learning the laws that govern our mind and the energetic world, we can work through our mind to direct, control, and produce the qualities of consciousness that raise our vibratory state to higher and higher levels, bringing us into greater and greater understanding of what we previously didn’t even recognize as existing. We have to wake up and become aware of what’s really going on, and learn how to operate our mind and body to strategically cultivate our own mental and emotional being.

Conscious Programming – “The Art of Self-Creation”

centering
The conscious aspect of the mind has the ability to program the subconscious mind, yet we have to first realize that they actually speak (work by) different languages. The conscious mind is abstract and thinks in terms of verbal language as words that lack behavior as actualizing, whereas the subconscious mind is experiential and emotional in nature and speaks in terms of pictures and sensory images as life-like realities that mimic actual memories. The conscious mind programs the subconscious (body awareness) through the imagination as an inner vision that transforms an abstract idea into a conceptualized reality. The imagination as the mind’s eye takes a basic idea, and through the process of applying it to a specific situation or set of circumstances, reinterprets it by personalizing it. We imagine it “as if” we were actually experiencing it as a real life situation. This creates the idea as a living pattern equivalent to a memory, which the subconscious uses to produce behavior that “acts out” the same scenario as a real life experience.

 
By imagining the desired idea as a reality, we not only create a pattern for application, but also create it as a believable possibility that we simultaneously identify with through the enactment. This creates the desired reality as an inner reality that the subconscious superimposes on the outer reality, organizing and reinterpreting it accordingly. The mind constructs realities by how it composes ideas to give them meaning. The meaning we give an idea determines how we experience it. Meaning shapes experience. It takes the imagined reality as an actual experience, which integrates and incorporates it through an accumulative effect that modifies the current paradigm as a system of beliefs based on memory (living realities) as a unification of the physical with the spiritual that provides a new template for generating thematic realities as analogous correspondences. It creates experiences that are of the same nature as a form of theme.

emanation

We take an abstract idea as a universal theme, and create an inner reality as a template that produces a frequency that’s used to magnetize and organize the outer reality as being of a similar nature. It won’t be exactly the same as the inner imagining, because it can only use elements in the immediate environment that are of the same frequency and therefore lend themselves to telling the same type of story. The outer experience will be of the same nature and basic idea of the imagined reality based on what’s available in the immediate environment that can be used to orchestrate the experience as a congruent theme.

 
Ideas, as feeling experiences, represent a vibratory frequency that attracts what is of the same nature and therefore has the same inherent tendencies that can be used to express the same idea as a joint reality. Whatever is of a different frequency, likewise, is simultaneously repelled. We only “see” ourselves (what matches our paradigm) in others and our environment, even though many other possibilities coexist within the same space and time. What is of the same nature as us we not only notice and give attention to (it stands out), we simultaneously allow to enter into us (energetic sympathy), stimulating an inner reaction (resonance) to it as a result. This is what we refer to as chemistry that produces a natural interaction based on an affinity of sorts.

 
When we allow ideas to readily and willingly be introduced into our mind, and take hold by thinking about them, we are allowing ourselves to be “programmed” by others or an external source. We then become subject to it because it acts to “tune us” to the same vibratory frequency as a joint reality that we create inward using our own mind. We allow ourselves to be determined – created – by outside forces. This is the result of the subconscious and passive aspect of the mind as our animalistic (body) nature that can be readily trained and domesticated by outside influences that we align with and allow to control us. We are influenced by another mind that imposes a direct influence on us, dominates by introducing an active force as an idea that’s willingly accepted by our passive and receptive mind, that controls us by absorbing and commanding our will.

cycles

When we give our will to the service of another by conforming to them, they act to control us and determine our behavior, which also shapes our identity accordingly. We enter into a sympathetic relationship with them, and through suggestion that acts to modify and manipulate our inner reality, we respond to them in a very predictable way. They train us to behave in a certain way by how they interact with us. Through the emotional quality of their communication, which acts as the hook for seating ideas in the imagination, allowing them to take hold long enough to develop them into personal realities by thinking about them in a compulsive manner. They “give us” emotional thoughts that are theirs, and we adopt them and then act to develop them as our own. This forms the basis of what we refer to as the “group mind” which is ultimately a form of subliminal mind entrainment designed to train people to certain types of behavior that they mistaken for their own.

 
Once we understand how we use our mind to self-create by creating internal realities that become the living patterns for outer realities of the same nature, we can withdraw our mental and emotional power from the group mind, and use our imagination to self-create in unique and individual ways instead. We can program our own mind and body by creating inner experiences of our desired reality, then enhancing them with sensory details, while infusing them with very positive emotions that magnetize them by making them compelling. Positive attracts and grows, negative repels and diminishes. To “become” by growing ourselves, is achieved through positive and active means, while allowing our negative, self-sabotaging aspects to fall away and subside, because we no longer keep them alive in our imagination. Fill your mind constantly with what you desire to experience and how you want to feel as a result. Sense yourself in very desirable ways that will shape your identity accordingly and will form your character as the means of bringing ideas into physical form as experiences that are self-perpetuated and performed by you!

Becoming Self-Aware: Spiritual Guidance is a Form of Hypnotic Suggestion

universal
By learning the principles of the mind involved in programming ourselves for certain types of experiences or as a form of ongoing storytelling that follows distinct themes, we can simultaneously realize that we exist in a primary state of hypnotic trance that connects us to multiple dimensions as inner and outer (parallel) and upper and lower (hierarchy). Through our self-conscious “thinking” mind, our subconscious “emotional-experiential” mind, and our higher “idea oriented” mind, when unified form holistic patterns that contain the full content of a living reality as a spontaneous unfolding that comes as a chain-of-association, where the subconscious exists as the passive and receptive medium between the other two aspects of the mind, where thoughts and ideas are readily taken in without editing or resistance and constructed into full imaginary realities.

 
What ties the upper plane to the lower is the subconscious which accepts patterns as programming from the upper plane and develops them into a form of memory as an actual (imagined) reality. Likewise, the conscious mind which is the offspring of the subconscious mind and exists (lives and dies) fully within the physical plane, also has the ability to program the subconscious mind through “thoughts” that become the basis for imagined realities that create virtual memories as templates for producing outer experiences of the same nature. The problem is it often doesn’t realize that it has this power, and so its thoughts are usually controlled instead by the subconscious mind through emotional states, and replaces what has the potential to be “original thoughts” with thoughts that are based on a series of associated memories. So while the conscious mind has the ability to create by forming original thoughts that it gives to the subconscious to create new experiences out of, instead, it tends to spend its creative ability thinking about the past and creating variations of the same type of experiences.

 
The self-conscious mind, which is the “local” mind identified with the body, birthed within this life and the conditions and circumstances of the body, is primarily held to the laws of the physical realm, and so tends to be logical, rational, and analytical, while lacking intuition. The conscious mind is also time bound (located) and spends most of its time distracted “in time” as thinking about the past, reliving memories over and over by bringing them into the present, or using the past to try and anticipate the future. The conscious mind is hardly ever present and therefore dwells in the imaginary realities of its own making that it uses in place of actual reality as a form of illusion or dreamlike state that forms a veil that conceals the true nature inherent in the “present” reality as objective, neutral, and non-personal. The conscious mind is the story-teller that reshapes objective reality into subjective experiences out of conceptualized representations that it then mistake’s for objective reality. It’s so caught up in the illusions build out of of its own memories, that it lives most of its life in a primarily unconscious, unaware, and delusional state. A true paradox, resolved only through awareness that brings self-realization of what we’re actually doing.

Even though the subconscious mind works out of memory, it exists outside of time, is always present, and perceives objective outer reality through actual emotions and sensations as a basic form of sympathetic resonance. It’s always interacting with other conscious energy in its environment, and though its programmed by memory to produce automatic behavior and regulate bodily processes in response to the information its constantly receiving from its environment, it doesn’t make up stories or think verbal, language oriented thoughts that serve to mask reality, and is always experiencing things as they actually are, instead of by way of a personalized perception (judgment) that distorts fact by telling a story about it that makes it mean something that transform it into a personal creation.

 
The subconscious is therefore never the “creator” of memory that distorts outer reality, but is “one with” the outer reality and sensing it as it really is. The subconscious forms memory out of “actual” experiences that are then utilized for practical use by recalling them in the imagination giving it a response pattern as an instant perception that produces automatic behaviors as the most appropriate response (instinct). The subconscious doesn’t know the difference between a memory created from an actual experience, and one created by imagining an experience that elicits a strong sensory-emotional response. This is because actual memory is recalled in the imagination as a means of “playing or reading” it, just as an imagined experience is played in the imagination as an actual scenario or living reality.

traveler
Likewise, just as the conscious mind can give the subconscious a thought that it will turn into a reality as an imagined experience that converts it from a series of words into the native tongue of the subconscious as an archetype or holistic pattern that’s a universal memory, which can be introduced into the subconscious as a way of giving it a prime directive that it’ll convert into a memory which is recalled in the imagination and becomes the basis for producing a corresponding outer reality as a personal experience of that idea. The subconscious, which doesn’t think in terms of “stories” as reliving memory, and doesn’t “make up” the memory out of it’s own conditioning that it then uses to produce physical realities and regulate biological processes designed to maintain equilibrium between the inner and the outer, and the upper and the lower, is the “medium” which “receives information” as ideas and patterns, from either the conscious-thinking mind, or the higher-feeling mind as vibration that shapes light into realities by imagining them, is being programmed from outside its present state and readily produces the physical equivalent of the thoughts and ideas its given.

 
When directives come from the conscious mind as thoughts attached to intense emotions, born out of recycled memories from the past, they are often fragmented, sporadic, and incoherent. They lack consistency because they’re not based on the actual conditions and circumstances of the present, but an illusion that’s replacing them that are no longer real or alive except in the imagination. When ideas come from the higher plane of our spiritual parent, they are holistic, have all the components for producing a harmonious reality and are directly connected to larger patterns currently being played out on a greater scale as a cohesive orchestration that brings about synchronistic connections and opportunities necessary to fulfill them, creating a new pattern as a natural form of evolution. By creating experiences that grow and expand us into new experiences, we create new memories of those experiences that program and upgrade our existing mental paradigm to produce more of the same type of experiences as an outgrowth.

earthmother
Spiritual guidance, working by way of natural laws that govern the mind, work through the induction of ideas as feelings that produce strong emotional imagery as dream-like, virtual realities that act as “memory” for the subconscious, which connects to that same idea in the external environment through resonance, and directs (influences) the conscious mind which forms thoughts of the same idea, creating a unified affect. When the three minds are resonating to the same vibratory pattern for creating reality in a harmonious and coherent manner, a quickening takes place, and things can come by what feels like magical means. Things come as a spontaneous series of synchronistic coincidences that systematically unfold into a whole new experience, which comes easily because there’s no resistance counteracting it.

 
But what usually happens instead, because most people don’t understand the different aspects of their own mind or maintain an awareness of how they operate to produce their own life experiences, is spirit communicates thru feelings and mental impressions, that the conscious mind either ignores completely because it’s too caught up in its own illusion, or it resists by doubting it, arguing with it, or attempting to change it so it can keep telling the same story. If it doesn’t “fit into” our story, we change it so it does, distorting it. The subconscious mind is then caught in the conflict, one canceling out or contradicting the other, and so whatever one is more persistent or intense, wins out. Because the higher mind is not “of” the material plane and is “subtle” in nature and comes as intuitive notions or impressions around things, the conscious mind as the voice in our head usually wins out because its active on the material plane and is bound by the identity of its own creation, that determines what it can naturally align with and what it can’t. In order to tell a new story to create a new experience of ourselves requires surrender and self-sacrifice by the self-conscious mind of the identity and ego, which usually chooses to argue instead, and passionately defends its story while justifying its right to keep it. This self-made identity becomes the ego as the “false self” which creates itself purely by way of the physical realm and the story it tells itself about who it is and why.

 
The self-conscious mind, through self-realization and awareness, also has the ability to forfeit its illusion in favor of a new story that will evolve and grow it into new realities that offer brand new experiences that will transform and evolve the identity to a higher and new form of expression. But in order to accept the guidance of the Higher-self, we have to realize our story is a mere fabrication as a story we began telling ourselves in an attempt to make sense of things by making them “mean something”, that we then ultimately used as the basis for conditioning ourselves to that story. By giving up our story, we come face-to-face with our identity, and we realize that we don’t know how to tell another story. In opening ourselves to tell a new type of story we have to expose ourselves to being vulnerable and trusting that we’ll know what to do in a brand new situation, and embrace our creativity with a kind of enthusiastic anticipation of the possibilities.

heaven

By embracing and standing in our creativity, while fully sensing the insecurity it brings as a lack of “knowing” and reassurance that everything’s going to be alright, and stepping wide-eyed into the unknown filled with a sense of anticipation, and a deep seated fear we struggle frantically to manage by containing it, we can return ourselves from a stationary redundant position of habitual routines, to one of fresh newness and intense stimulation, that courageously encounters and resolve our fears, and as a result evolving us into more and more expansive forms of growth that force us from our prison of fear by willfully transforming our limited beliefs. It’s our beliefs about ourselves that confine us to a mundane existence of struggling and suffering to desperately maintain boredom out of fear of change. Change brings growth and stimulates new qualities in us that transform us from the outside-in, and from the inside-out. The Spirit, which is pure potential as consciousness that shapes reality (astral light) out of ideas (vibratory patterns), exists in a fundamental state of creativity as an evolutionary flow that moves spontaneously from one idea into another. No resistance or containing, simply a joyful expansion into new parts of itself that it comes to know for the first time in a fleeting moment of unfolding and enfolding.

 
Spirit is always urging us to continue growing and expanding by returning our story to an evolving state of continuous growth and development. When we get stuck in redundant patterns and refuse to willingly move out of them through fear of not knowing who we are or if we’ll be okay, spirit is always gently prompting us to resolve patterns and reform into new ones. We often receive (are aware of) guidance at certain points, but are unwilling to utilize it or cling to the need to know how it will turn out before we’re willing to try, encountering first hand the very fears that limit us to those patterns that we consistently back-down to, each time, dying a little more, securing our prison wall formed of imaginary fears that only exist because of the power we give them in determining us. After denouncing creative ideas and refusing to act on them as the pathway to our destiny, we shut down communication, and resort to praying only in moments of desperation or mental anguish, and because we have become indifferent to the messages we receive as the answers that will require us to act powerfully in our own lives, we feel “no messages” are coming through, experience a form of disconnect, then imagine we’ve been abandoned by God. Usually, without ever realizing that it was us that first abandoned God and ourselves, all in the same act of choosing to ignore all the answers we don’t like, or that seem to difficult, and then resort to asking the same questions over and over, until we get an answer we want.

vibration
Guidance, both from above and self-directed, serve to program the subconscious by giving it a pattern as a potential reality to create out of that produces our life story and how we experience the events of our life. When our Higher Consciousness introduces a suggestion as a seeded reality into the subconscious, that’s realized by the self-conscious mind, which chooses to align itself to the idea of the Higher Will, forming a cohesive harmony by using it to tell new stories about things, wrapping our identity around it, dreams come true, life appears magical, and things naturally come about of their own volition. When we receive an idea that we feel is “in us”, engrained in us as a kind of imprint, the only thing that prevents it from coming to be, or makes it seem impossible or a struggle to do, is our own resistance to it. Our resistance comes by what we tell ourselves “about” it, about what it’ll mean, or about why we can’t do it, or because it conflicts with other areas of our life that we’d have to give up in order to move forward into it, and so on. By simply examining your own thoughts around an idea, you can see how or in what way you lack congruence and act in a roundabout way to counteract or sabotage the idea, and miss the opportunity to use it as a life-creation tool that its designed for.

 

 

All guidance is a form of self-guidance (Higher self), and all problems with utilizing our own guidance for ourselves is the struggle that takes place internally in response to our own thoughts being delivered from different perspectives. The Higher Self sees and is always working with the “big picture” and overall patterns that involve long-term outcomes produced by strategic intervention that benefit everyone involved; the subconscious mind is in the present moment and seeks only self-preservation; and the self-conscious mind is looking at the future from the perspective of the past and can only see what matches it, and is unwilling to consider anything that’s outside of its present scope and identity, and fears the idea of growth as having to encounter the unknown, requiring trust, faith, and believing that where you’re being led is where you really need to go and is what will provide you with the lessons you need to systematically overcome your perceived limitations as fear, insecurity, and uncertainty, and instead embrace your true potential as internal qualities still waiting to be born and actualized by way of the proper stimulation that only comes through real life events. The conscious mind sees itself “as” the body (ego), and changing its identity is perceived as a form a death. Spirit is always acting to facilitate our growth by overcoming our imagined limitations and habituated patterns of perception. It’s always urging us to break free from our own illusions that act to imprison us in a mundane reality of overwhelming self-imposed limitations born out of forgetting “who” we actually are. It urges us to step into a fearless state of self-propelled evolution, and create ourselves anew in every moment by tuning into the intuitive impressions constantly whispering to us, and merging with them becoming the means through which they express and using them to recreate ourselves by way of them.

A New Paradigm for Understanding the Mind-Body Connection

Many people have been conditioned to very conventional ways of looking at their own mind-body system and because of this, are in a constant state of confusion as to how it actually works. While science consistently gravitates to the physical explanation for things, eliminating the clear and obvious action of “invisible forces” involved in the fundamental aspects of life itself, and religion often doesn’t offer a practical or scientific explanation for the mind which is necessary for “understanding” it, we’re often trying to figure out how to combine them in a way that makes sense so we can know how to work by way of our mind and body to self-create. There is a system however that does actually combine both spirit and (physical) science, called “spiritual sciences” that include both the material and subtle levels that work together to produce what we experience as the physical world which is actually the manifestation of both energy and matter to form an outcome as a joint expression.

While many people tend to view the mind, body, and spirit as different, and therefore separate aspects of a whole, the fact of the matter is, they exist as different “states” or vibratory densities of the same thing that exists in multiple dimensions at the same time. We are not only “composite beings”, we are also multi-dimensional beings who exist in 4 (basic) worlds simultaneously, and out of these four worlds come an infinite number of formula’s that produce an infinite variety of expressions formed out of the same basic ingredients as vibratory frequencies. These four worlds, also known as the four elements and the four states of matter, are navigated through a three-fold nature. The “mind” has three basic aspects that operate at different levels simultaneously to produce what we experience as a single reality. The three aspects of the mind are the higher or super conscious, the lower or subconscious, and the ego based self-conscious that’s also referred to as the “conscious mind”. Conscious in this case means “self-aware”. The conscious mind is the aspect of the mind most people think of when we use the term ‘mind’. Many people also believe that the mind is a product of the brain or the heart, which represent aspects of the mind as the subconscious (heart) and conscious (brain), however these aspects function largely “through” the heart and brain, and are not actually “produced” by them. The electromagnetic fields produced by organs of the body are due more too increased and specialized activity rather than actual generation of the ‘fields’ themselves.

torus

he mind is the ‘invisible’ energy field of not only the human body, but of all living things. And while all living things have an energy field that surrounds and permeates them, giving them life, all energy fields don’t have to have a body and can exist in measurable terms independent of a physical body. The body however, ‘needs’ the mind for ‘life’, and without a ‘life-force’ energy field, ‘dies’ and becomes an ‘empty shell’ that deteriorates (the true meaning of death). For this reason, the mind is considered the immortal aspect of our being. The mind is equivalent to what we call ‘spirit’, which is consciousness itself that’s invisible to the eye, and exists primarily in a state of ‘pure potential’, which is information and intelligence that has not entered into a biological organism and formed as one possibility out of literally billions. The spirit, which is also equivalent to our higher-self, is also known as the ‘universal mind’, and the ‘Akasha Field’ where information exists in its potential unformed state as archetypes or principles. These principles, which operate according to law, are form (structure) and function (behavior) that has a personality (unique style). These universal archetypes are drawn upon by the individual and used to create by personalizing them. Because the spiritual realm is the realm of pure law (vibratory frequency), which exists in an evolutionary flow of continuous transformation as the potential for creating possible physical realities, but can’t be formed and therefore corrupted (mixed), it needs a medium (middle man) in order to mingle with the physical realm, which is too far apart in vibratory frequency to form resonance.

The soul, which is a partially formed field that’s specialized through the spirit that it draws on and the body that it bonds to in order to manifest as an actual personality, is what we could call the physical mind as the essence of the body that’s also an aspect of spirit, and so remains in a constant state of evolution as the accumulative effect of memory provided by “life experiences”. The soul being both spirit and body is a medium that mediates the transference of information as vibration (pure energy) into chemical and material structures, as the expression of the consciousness inherent in the vibration. The soul is what we could call the ‘local mind’ that forms resonance with the body, bonding to it, and acting as a transmitter for drawing intelligence down into the body from the spiritual realm, in-forming and potentially transforming it by growing it with new qualities of consciousness. The body, and the soul, which are energetically connected, form coherence and are of the same vibratory frequency. The body acts as a form of antenna for both transmitting and receiving signals as consciousness from the greater, universal mind. It can only draw into it (through sympathetic induction) what’s ‘of’ the same frequency as a quality and level of consciousness. So in order to raise or alter our vibration, we have to simultaneously alter the “state” of our body by creating homeostasis and regulating our emotions.

This can be easily understood when we look at the relationship between how we feel and what we think. Thought and emotion are always equivalent to each other. Our thoughts formed as an internal representation stimulate an emotional reaction to our own imaginings. Likewise, an emotional trigger, form distinct thoughts as a memory associated to that same emotion. Our mood as our state of mind is our vibratory frequency and determines what type of thoughts we think and what type of memories we live out of as a way of creating our personal reality.

souls_sphere_

The health of our body, outside of hereditary conditions and predispositions, is created by us by how we live our life and what type of behaviors we engage in. Our lifestyle at once directly reflects our consciousness (as behaviors) and sets it as a frequency used for creating more of the same idea in an accumulative and repetitive fashion. In order to “change” our vibration as our level of consciousness we have to “change” our physical condition which determines how we feel. Just as we can’t be in a happy mood while thinking sad thoughts, we can’t be positive, energetic and optimistic when we feel tired, worn out, and emotionally down. Higher consciousness is only accessible through positive emotions that create an elevated state. Again . . . they’re always a match.

The mind itself, which is non-formed and based on a form of tension field (paradigm) shaped by memory as acquired experiences that’s always in a transformative state (creating and acquiring new experiences), builds itself out of the thoughts we think and the memories we consistently create realities out of by dwelling in them and recreating similar experiences in the present moment. When we make the present mean the same thing as the past, and we live out of our stories built out of memories of the past, we fail to evolve and heal in the most basic sense, and stay stuck in the same patterns for what can be a lifetime (or two).

Memories are templates for creating instant realities that give us the same experiences as habitual emotional states that form the same interpretations as the story we tell ourselves about things that make them ‘mean’ something. The meaning we give things means something about us too. What our interpretations mean about us, shapes how we sense ourselves within our own life, and how we identify with our own creation. This pattern as a life story and a lifestyle become a theme as a vibratory frequency that keeps us locked into that same patterning as a basic form of conditioning.

So the soul acts as a mediator between a higher – pure vibration and a lower – corrupted (personalized) vibration, which has the ability to shape itself by way of what it chooses to identify with and align with as a result. The soul can build itself by “choosing” who and how it wants to be and drawing on those resources from the spiritual soup of information available, or it can remain unconscious of its true abilities and live an unconscious life of conditioned behaviors and worn out memories that act to degrade or devolve it as a result. The body either controls the mind, or the mind controls the body.

The spirit is a neutral force as pure consciousness that is drawn on based solely on vibration through sympathetic induction. Whatever the soul and body are tuned to and vibrate, and therefore act as a tuning device and antenna for, they draw more of that same idea to themselves as their outer reality that matches their internal imagining. We’re only capable of attracting more of what we already are. We have to work to transform our inner reality as our thoughts and emotions before we can draw on those same types of ideas around us. The condition of our body as our general health reflects the condition of our mind as a level and quality of consciousness which resonates with it in a harmonic fashion. If the body goes down in vibration (health as state), the mind goes down equivalently. How we feel determines how we think and what type of internal realities we create by how we use our mind as our imagination. The outer world comes to us as a correspondence to our inner world. Our inner world forms our perceptual lens and determines what we see and how we interpret what we see to tell a story about it. It’s our inner reality that forms how we experience the outer reality.

So to raise your consciousness as your vibratory frequency you have to work with your “whole system” simultaneously by understanding how they exist and are formed in relationship with each other. You have to live your life in a way that creates optimal health, promotes positive emotional states, employ a moral code of conduct based on standards, and control what you tend to think about, directing your attention to desired ideas that you want to develop and create in your life. Random, meaningless thoughts should be disciplined to productive ones, and behaviors that destroy your health and well-being need to be transformed into positive, productive and health promoting behaviors. By simply eating a healthy and nutritious diet you’ll improve how you feel and increase your vitality which will induce positive emotional states. By exercising through enjoyable activities you’ll stimulate chemistry in your body that will naturally produce elevated states while reducing pain. By engaging in activities that stimulate positive emotions you’ll naturally think positive thoughts. By evaluating the relationships in your life and letting go of the negative toxic ones, while engaging more fully in the positive and enjoyable ones, you’ll change how you’re being stimulated and influenced. By thinking positive thoughts, you’ll begin reconditioning yourself by transforming your paradigm (mind set) to a new perceptual lens that forms more enlivening interpretations and inner representations that make you feel good and love life. By attending to these areas simultaneously you’ll create a chain reaction that will simultaneously shift all areas of your life at once to a higher level of experience that’ll bring joy and laughter into your life.

Soul Essence– “Pattern of Potentiality”

humanenergy-spiritual-beings-consciousness

One of ways we can understand the Soul, is as an energetic patterning that exists in its potential form. It is comprised of latent potential that is naturally awakened partially during our formative years through our conditioning, while other potential remains latent and must be awakened intentionally through deliberate practice. The soul is accompanied by, and ultimately fueled by the life-force energy that is capable of animating, exciting and bringing potential into expression producing heightened states of self-awareness and realization. The practice of creating an “ideal” of ourselves to use as a pattern for self-actualization, is in reality, recognizing our full potential, and then intentionally engaging in activating and awakening the potential that still exists in its latent form. During our second stage of development known as our “Soul’s awakening” or rebirth, this is done by intentionally choosing qualities within us that we have not been able to express up to this point that we practice embodying until they become a natural part of our character.

When we understand how we develop naturally, we can use this information to work by placing ourselves in the proper environments, relationships and activities that will serve as a tool to develop desired characteristics. We can realize that when we find ourselves in relationships and situations that provoke negative feelings and qualities in us, that if we choose to stay in those, they will serve to not only bring out those qualities as characteristics in us, but they will strengthen them until they become a natural part of our personality. We have to realize the power of influence and not set out to resist it per say, but rather learn how to use it as a tool for self-development. By intentionally placing ourselves in productive situations that stimulate our best qualities and keep us in a state of curiosity and enthusiasm, and relationships that bring out the best in us, we act to develop and strengthen those aspects of our self until they become a primary part of our character that we express naturally and automatically.

Always pay very close attention to what is being stimulated inside of you at any given moment, and it will reveal to you the true nature of things. While the surface can be disguised or manipulated to appear a certain way, the feeling it has by what it is awakening inside of you, is its true nature and creative power. Resonance is a certain quality of energy that acts to stimulate the same quality in others. The inner nature is always activating the same energetic frequency in its environment, awakening it, drawing it forth, and then interacting with it. At the energetic level we are influenced through feelings. Gain a heightened sense of awareness around how you’re feeling at any given time, and ask yourself, do I want more of this? Do I like how this feels? Notice what quality it brings out in you, and if you like that part of your self. If you do, stay with it and keep interacting with it, but if not, disengage and remove yourself from the influence. This is one of the most basic forms of self-development that we engage in completely at the subliminal and organic level, usually without any direct awareness of what’s actually happening. All mastery begins by becoming aware of what’s operating in your life that up to this point, you were unaware of. It begins by becoming conscious of what was unconscious, and using it in a deliberate and strategic way to self-create by way of it.
