Learning to become an Excellent Communicator – Self-Expression as Performance

performance

Knowledge originated as the “Arts and Sciences” in what most see as contrary ideas that are in reality extensions of each other. Knowledge as science can be thought of as an idea in theoretical form that can only be proved through experimentation or by applying it at the practical level to create living phenomena out of it as an experience of it. The application comes as a form of communication where we become the “channel” or “vehicle” through which the idea comes into physical reality by way of us. We act in some way by applying the idea to our life, and “act it out” or “perform it”. Because our method of application and style of performing is unique to us based on our personality, “how” we do it becomes a form of self-expression, where the science applied becomes an art-form.

 
Many of you may have seen the “communication pie” that reveals the components of communication as being 7% based on the words being used, 38% being the tone or quality of your voice in terms of “how” we say it, and 55% of the communication comes through our physiology as what we’re expressing by how we’re being. Naturally, many of the experts want to take this in a literal manner and begin breaking apart a whole expression into “body-language” as categories and labels in a way that can be standardized and therefore taught in a methodical manner, yet, what this is actually showing us is that we actually communicate by expressing with our whole being. Communication is a full body transmission that simultaneously reveals the inner state of the person communicating, while also revealing their mental paradigm that forms their unique perception and interpretive style. What this shows us is that we can never really hide how we’re feeling. Our attitude forms the greater part of our communication. What we value, believe, and have a preference for shapes our communication in subtle ways that while they may not be readily recognized in our attempt to conceal them, they are still fully conveyed in our energy, which is felt by others.

 
Communication is intuitive and being done all the time through our “presence”, regardless of whether or not we’re talking. People can sense our energy as our mental atmosphere, read our emotions being reflected in our body postures, gestures, and facial expressions, as well as biological processes such as flushing of the skin, tension in the lips, dilated pupils, shakiness in our voice, and so on. We also communicate in a basic sense by how we present ourselves, through our personal grooming, style, wardrobe, jewelry, etc. We create an image of ourselves that give people an impression of “who” and “how” we are, and what kind of person we are. To take up the study of body language that turns it into a mechanical, systematized process of categorizing and labeling specific postures and gestures as meaning this or that and applied to everyone equally, is like buying a book on “dream interpretation” that gives a universal interpretation of certain objects as if they mean the same thing to everybody, when in fact, nothing could be further from the truth. The message in the communication expresses not only the idea being communicated, but also the person doing the communicating. We can tell how they feel about what they’re communicating, what their perspective is, and whether they’re being congruent in terms of what they’re communicating being contradictory to how they actually feel. Whether they’re creating an illusion and lying, or whether or not they believe what they’re saying, and saying it out of honesty. What we’re doing with our body always matches our internal state. Always.

 
This gives us the tools we need for becoming excellent communicators by becoming aware of how we’re being as we communicate. By realizing that in order to communicate effectively, we have to first form the proper state or mood out of which we communicate, knowing it’s going to be the greater part of the communication. Cultivating the proper attitude through which we communicate is critical to the message or idea being communicated. Becoming aware of how we accentuate our voice quality through our tone, speed and hesitations as a form of timing, the rhythm of talking, what and how we emphasize words, what we’re doing with our body, our facial expressions, and gestures by how we use our hands, controlling the look in our eyes, and so on.


The basic dynamic always going on as the basis for our communication, is that whatever mood or emotion we’re embodying and expressing through, we stimulate that same emotion in others, calling it forth in response to us as the “connection” or “stream of communication” as an interactive flow of energy. We connect to others and the external world through feelings and emotions. Emotions connect us to things outside of ourselves that brings what’s inside, outside, and vice verse as a correspondence. Our action stimulates an equal reaction of the same emotional quality. How we act towards others by how we’re being, determines how they act towards us in a natural response to us. This is a fundamental form of “cause and effect”.

 
So all communication is in fact a “performance” where the words being employed are only a minute part of what’s actually being conveyed. To become an excellent communicator, you need to become an excellent performer. You take an attitude of expressing ideas by “embodying them”, creating the proper mood necessary for stimulating the same feeling-mood in whomever you’re communicating with. You do this by asking yourself, what feeling is necessary for the expression of this idea within the conditions and circumstances it’s being used to create? What is the purpose of the communication, and what effect or behavior is it designed to create? What emotion will give the proper emphasis and elicit the desired response as an outcome? Based on what you’re communicating and what result or course of action it’s meant to set in motion, what state do you need to cultivate in order to become the proper channel for expressing the idea that will elicit the same state in another? What part of the person’s imagination do you want to touch on through the nature of the communication, and what seed will the communication plant as a fertile idea in their mind that they will continue to grow through the emotion connected to it that it was delivered through, long after the communication is done?

emotional expressions

To plant a seed as a thought to be grown in the mind of another, we match the idea with the emotion. The emotion determines in what way the idea will be developed, and what kind of reality they will create out of it as a result. When inspiring and passionate emotions are coupled with an idea, it’s developed in a very positive way as the means for expressing the emotion through the idea. When negative emotions are applied to the same idea, it’s developed in a way that expresses that emotion and serves to create more of it. Thought and emotion are always joined to create experiences as the reality of the thought. The emotion is our “direct line” into another and the formative or creative factor that shapes the idea to be an expression of it. While our thoughts may be unique to each person, and the words we use form different pictures in each persons mind as an association, emotions are universal and shared by everyone in a congruent manner. Anger produces anger, and though how it’s expressed may be different from person to person, it still acts to stimulate and create more anger. The emotional component of an idea is what we connect to in others, and the idea as a thought is simply the form the emotion takes on as a vehicle to express as a reality. Whenever we’re communicating, the emotion “is” what’s actually being communicated through how we’re expressing ourselves. Our expression stimulates that same nature and expression in another and acts to multiply it.

anger

By learning to view how we communicate in a new light, we can not only become more self-aware, and perhaps realize why our communications fail to produce what we want them to produce, but through the awareness alone, we can hone our style for self-expression by learning how to perform much like an actor takes on the proper state and character traits to play a role in a convincing manner. Just as when we were kids and we modeled our hero’s and those we wanted to be like by taking on the same qualities and behaviors that served to develop us in those same ways by becoming the expression of them. When we learn how to communicate by performing, we develop higher forms of self-expression and become powerful creators in our own life. We learn how to “give” people ideas that we want them to develop and act to co-create with us by forming a joint reality out of them.

 

So as you think about communicating and what it is you wish to produce by way of the communication, think about what feeling or emotion as a state-of-mind that you want to elicit in them as the fertile ground for developing the idea you’re introducing into their mind as a thought that will be developed in their imagination into an internal experience. Then intentionally cultivate and take on that emotional state before you communicate the idea. Notice just how employing the emotional state changes how you form the communication in your imagination that changes how it delivered or expressed. Then, practice communicating in a way that consciously expresses the emotion by how you’re being. By your energy, your body posturing, facial expression, the tone and quality of your voice, and the rhythm in which you speak, and what you emphasize by “how” you say it. Communication is actually an art-form that’s performed. Like any performance based art, you have to practice to develop your style and your ability to become more expressive by learning to utilize your entire being as the basis for the communication.

communicating
To produce new behaviors takes the firm decision to do so, and commitment to a dedicated practice that’s undertaken in a devoted manner. Once we choose what we want to change and the new methods to be employed in their place, and we start by imagining our selves being that way, and doing it that way, we begin using the creative aspect of our imagination to form internal representations of an idea as a reality, that we then use for acting out to produce the same idea as an outer affect. Imagining an idea gives us the basis for practicing it. By practicing we build knowledge into our muscle where it becomes natural and automatic. We begin transforming how we’re being in the world, and how we express ourselves as a result. We learn how to truly connect to others and share ideas that simultaneously allow for emotional expression that’s healthy and productive in nature. By expanding our ability to express ourselves more fluently and eloquently, we form a new kind of confidence and enhance our experience of living by enriching the meaning things take on.

 

Practice only makes perfect when you know how to practice in the right way. Otherwise, it simply propagates a whole series of errors.

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!

The Pentagram – “Mind-over-Matter: Shaping Words into Realities”

vitruvian man
The pentagram is probably one of the better known symbols of Sacred Geometry, and also one of the most misunderstood. While many associate it to Witchcraft and Satanic Cults of various sorts, or see it as the sign representing the devil, in reality, it’s none of these, or perhaps all of these, depending on how you perceive them and whether or not you’re prone to superstition (believing in something we don’t understand). The most basic interpretation of this symbol is “personal power” as “mind-over-matter”. This is the mind’s ability to direct and shape the natural forces and the four elements that govern the physical realm, represented by the law of the Tetrad (4), which precedes it laying the foundation out of which it naturally emerges (laws unfold out of each other). The pentagram or pentad is the symbol of the number 5, and is represented by the five-pointed star. This is the “Star of the Magi”, as well as the symbol of the devil (lower nature), based on its positioning; upright with the single point in the ascendant position, or inverted with two points in the upper position. The “devil” in the case indicates the elemental s of the material world as governing or controlling the mind.

pentagram
The basic meaning that it represents is the mind’s ability to form and animate matter with consciousness (personality and identity). It’s the soul’s dominion over the 4 Elements as the phosphene substance or Astral Light of the material plane. This represents the Quintessence as the number 5 which is the number of the soul, which is also primarily of the Astral plane. It symbolizes the power of the imagination which has the ability to shape light into realities as internal images, and the soul (mind) which acts as the receptacle for Universal Light, which operates through the law of vibration, sympathetic induction and coherence, and acts to organize light (photons) into patterns as possible realities. This represents the soul’s ability of not only receiving and assimilating the images, reflections, and imprints contained in the Living Light – The Great Magnetic Agent – as “memories”, but also of “creating virtual memories” that can be used in place of actual memories to produce analogous realities as self-created experiences.

 
Like all laws and natural forces which exist in a fundamental state of polarity, and are “issued forth” in pairs as complementary opposites of the same operation that demonstrate a relationship, in order to properly understand the pentad (5), we have to look at it in relationship to not only the 4 or Tetrad which precedes and lays the foundation necessary to spontaneously birth it, but also the hexad (6) that emerges out of it, which is also symbolized as a star. If we think of these in terms of how they correspond to the chakra’s of the body (soul’s energetic anatomy), as the throat (5) and the 3rd eye (6), we can see that words as sound (whether silent as thought or spoken) are shaped into internal conceptualizations in the imagination. Words form the basis for analogous imagery. What we think we’re simultaneously imagining, and what we are imagining becomes the basis for what we say, talk about, or communicate to others. Thought as an imagined reality forms our “perceptual lens” and is what we “look through” that determines what we “see” in the outer world that corresponds to it as being of the same nature. The inner always provides the basis for the outer as a filtering system that the mind uses to organize the outer to be of the same nature or vibration as the inner.

“To speak is to create, to imagine is to see”

and the word was made flesh and walked among us

What we think as visual imagery and speak we actually create. Our words direct our imagination to form distinct images out of the words, which become the outer expression of inward imagining that projects and superimposes it onto the outer environment causing others to see the same sensory images. The words we speak are the images as patterns, and the emotion and attitude through which we speak them is the shaping mechanism that determines what memory we associate to it, and call forth in our mind as a means of developing the idea to be a proper vehicle of expression for that emotion. How we experience an idea is based on what feeling-emotion we attach to it. The image as a shape (outer reference) is the carrier-wave that transmits the emotion. An idea is always married to a feeling, which forms how we think about it, and how we adapt that idea to ourselves and our life circumstances by how we apply it in the moment, which modifies and re-configures it as a compliance.

 
The idea represented by the Tetragrammaton as the 4 Elements of the material plane, are the four lower points on the star that form a square, symbolizing the lower 4-dimensional plane, governed largely by instinct as memories of some sort. These four lower points as the Elements represent an idea (archetype or universal memory as a pattern), animated by a feeling-emotion (activating it), that forms a thought-process as a conceptualized internal representation of the idea, reshaping it as an adaptation to the mental paradigm of the individual as applied within their current life circumstances to produce an external reality as a personal experience that’s analogous to the internal experience. All of this, called the shaping of Astral Light as “thought-forms”, is performed within the faculty of the imagination (3rd eye). This imaginative ability is how the soul, as the astral mind, which is comprised of accumulated and integrated memories shapes the Astral Agent of phosphene-like Light into internal realities that become the basis for outer experiences.

creating Cameran Grey
Astral Light, also called terrestrial fluid, the Great Magnetic Agent, the Plastic Mediator, that is populated with the demons of the air, spirits of fire, phantoms of water, and the ghosts of the earth, all of which are invisible, ghost-like images as natural forces, are speaking of the same idea, they’re just using different terms to describe it. The pentagram represents the power of the spoken word (thought and speech) to shape images in the imagination, turning them into internal realities as living representations personalized by how the individual reshapes universal ideas (words) into a new variation filtered through and reorganized by their own paradigm (accumulated integrated memories). These images, formed in our imagination create “thought-forms” that are imprinted in our Astral Field or outer Mind (electromagnetic field surrounding and permeating our body), and are perceived by others as feelings and mental impressions, and are magnetic or attractive in nature.

 
Whatever we think about and internalize on a constant and regular basis with strong emotional content, we literally magnetize ourselves to. These electromagnetic thought-forms act to project and transmit as well as attract thoughts and ideas of the same nature in our outer world, while repelling anything that’s not of the same nature (form). We are literally “asking for” more of whatever we imagine and think about. Emotion acts as an amplifier, intensifying the signal, and is what directly connects us to everyone and everything around us. The emotions we’re experiencing at any given time are what we’re broadcasting and activating all around us, which are associated to analogous ideas that express and create more experiences that increase and give us more of that same feeling.

pentagram elementsThe star represents power over the lower world of Elementals, and when placed in a circle, which represents the Monad as the sphere of consciousness or mind-field of the soul (specialized pattern), contains and holds the Elements within it, where they are subservient to the will of the soul, which can use them as a creative tool and magnetizer for self-creating and producing self-designed experiences, formed in the imagination and superimposed or projected onto the outer environment creating and attracting corresponding elements that lend themselves to being shaped into the same type of patterns. All memories are created and replayed in the imagination, and are not based solely on actual experiences, but mostly out of imagined experiences that have been interpreted to make them mean something. Actual stored memories come out of events that have a strong emotional impact and form the “themes” that become basis of what we think about, and we propagate numerous “virtual” memories out of actual ones that are a pure fabrications of our imagination. But because they’re created in the same way, they produce the same affect, and they become a form of “self-programming”.

 
The pentad, which represents “regeneration”, also represents the phi relationship (3 + 2) as doubling and halving, where we manifest whatever is being emphasized, reproducing and multiplying it, growing and evolving our mental model through an accumulative process. This relationship is further demonstrated through the Fibonacci Sequence, which is based on reproduction as the present combined with the most recent memory of the past forms the basis for the future, again, corresponding to producing reality as a correlation of accumulative memory to produce endless variations of the same thematic idea. This idea of a basic set of memories integrated into a holistic pattern as a paradigm, forming the basis for propagating more memory of the same type as the means of self-creation and evolution, is the primary idea behind how the soul evolves through multiple lifetimes by repeating and creating out of the same basic set of memories.

star phi

How the pentagram is positioned, demonstrates the orientation in terms of what’s the governing factor. When positioned upright with the single triangle in the ascending position (top), it represents personal power as working consciously with the imagination to magnetize your self through the shaping of the elements. When reversed, with two points – triangles at the top (horns as division of the mind), and the single triangle or point at the bottom, represents the mind being controlled by the elements, and lacking power to control our own mind because we remain unconscious of our own true abilities, and use it in a haphazard way to create out of emotional and pleasure seeking states. Inverted represents being conditioned to automatic thoughts given to you by others, while using your imagination to think about the very thing you don’t want, and magnetizing yourself to it as a result. This symbolizes the most basic form of ignorance that spends its power magnetizing itself to its own imaginary fears and being controlled by others (through suggestion and emotions) while creating out of a primarily conditioned and reactive state.

 
An inverted Pentagram represents the “devil” if we understand the devil (“lived” spelled backwards) as being the thought-forms created by others that were born out of fear, anxiety, hatred, and intense emotions that populate the Astral Field of mass consciousness (delusions) as the “instinctual field of humanity” that we tune into and receive as ideas associated to our own emotional states, and act to co-create out of the delusions that plague humanity, without any real awareness that that is what we’re doing. We basically live our life from an unconscious state that relies on instinct as instant realities that produce automatic behaviors, and create out of error as a false idea about ourselves. We equate ourselves to the animal kingdom as our lower nature, and become a product of our conditioning. The devil, represented by the god named Pan, represents our lower-animal nature (half man and half goat), which is primarily instinctual in nature and unconscious in the most basic sense of not being aware of how you’re using your own mind, which is bestowed with higher-consciousness and the ability to create through choice and will by how we take control of our own mind and emotions, and operate it in a conscious (aware) and intentional manner.

reversed pentagram

The Pentagram, like all laws, cannot be properly understood as a singular, free-standing law, but rather needs to be viewed in its polar relationship as complementary aspects of the same operation, and by how it exists as apart of a continuous growth process. It must be viewed holistically and intuitively in terms of the full expression of the laws that precede it, that it naturally emerged out of, while still holding the latent potential of all laws that sequentially flow systematically from it. All laws originate out of the dyad (2 monads or spheres), which is considered the “parent number” out of which all reality emerges out of as a growth process. Because of this, the first “real number” is 3 (triad), which is the offspring as a combination of both masculine and feminine aspects, or the “inner and the outer”, which are complementary and act to stimulate each other, together form a unique variation as a combination or formula comprised of compatible aspects of both natures, in different quantities, degrees and potency’s (interference pattern). The numbers three through nine, three being the first “real number” as the offspring or combination formed by the dyad (mother and father), and ten being a repeat of one on a higher level or complete cycle (0) which are considered the base numbers and laws governing material and subtle reality, are seven. Seven is the number of the “virgin”, because it can’t be drawn in accurate and equal measurements, and so is expressed in a unique fashion each time it’s expressed. Seven is the number of creative expression.

 
Just as the Monad and Dyad represent a basic relationship as different aspects of the same thing, this same relationship continues as the offspring of laws that issue forth in pairs. The pentad (5) is complementary to the hexad (6), which is symbolized by the same idea of a star. The hexad comes in the form of the “Star of David”, and is formed by two triangles, positioned and moving in opposite direction as ascending and descending, or connecting the upper with the lower, just as the triad (3) and the Tetrad (4) represent the relationship between the inner and the outer as the triangle which forms a mirror image of itself outwardly, forming a diamond which is also a square. This same relationship correlated to the chakra system of the body as the 5th and 6th chakra, represent the spoken word (throat) that is formed into a reality in the imagination (3rd eye). The word as a sound vibration geometrically structures Astral Light into distinct patterns that the words represent. Our thoughts are words formed into living concepts which become the basis for our speech and our actions.

hex
These two laws, the pentad and the hexad, represent sound (whether silent or actual) that shapes Light into patterns as internal imagery that becomes the “lens we look through” (the pineal gland is a crystalline structure that reflects images on it’s surface) for seeing that same pattern-idea around us and connecting us to it in the outer world, where we act to awaken it through our very presence (consciousness). Then, after attracting and bringing the same pattern into an active state in others, we interact through it to produce the same pattern as an outer, joint experience. These two laws are represented in the Biblical phrase, “and the word was made flesh and walked among us.” To speak is to create, and to imagine is to see our creation as a possible reality. We create an inner reality that magnetizes us to that same reality around us. This is the power of our mind to literally shape our experience of reality, which in turn shapes us as the creator, main star, and witness to our own creation. Our imagination is how we create “memory” that forms our soul’s programming as a vibratory frequency that has both electric (perpetuating) and magnetic (attractive) properties. We are always the ones creating ourselves and our life by way of our own thinking.

Emotional Thoughts Transform us to the Same Vibratory Frequency

Transcendence

A basic Principle of the mind is that it doesn’t know how to process a negative command. What this means is that it doesn’t work by way of being told what “not” to do, but rather by suggesting what “to” do. It simply holds an idea as a suggestion within the mind’s eye, and begins developing it by thinking about it. We then have an emotional response to the thoughts, which becomes the determining factor of how the thought is developed to create meaning through a story. The emotional component is one of the most important features because it forms the meaning the idea takes on which becomes the nature of the experience we have, which subliminally drives our behavior as an expression of the idea, as well as spawning other ideas of a similar nature with the connecting point being the emotional quality itself.

 

The mind as energetic essence is exquisitely sophisticated. The greater aspect of the mind, the subconscious and Higher-Conscious, as two-thirds of the mind, is slippery, elusive and impressionistic making it hard to fully realize. This is because not only is it primarily unconscious (functions outside our awareness), but it also perceives and communicates by different means and by using a different language than the conscious mind. It works out of feelings, ideas, emotions, images and symbolic metaphors that intuitively invoke a whole chain of associations. It exists in a state of unity and synthesis as a fully synchronized relationship with our environment. It doesn’t perceive itself as separate and apart from everything like the conscious mind does, but rather senses itself as the same thing. The true meaning of the Quintessence isn’t mind over matter necessarily, but rather matter as existing within the mind, of the same essence as the mind.

fibanaci man

The conscious mind, which is what most of us are aware of, is the perceptual, conceptualizing mind that creates separation as the necessary means of self-perception. The conscious mind is the aspect of the mind that thinks in terms of words as internal dialogue. The word as a conceptual form calls forth life by breathing and vibrating it, by speaking it. All of life was brought forth by the word which moved across the living waters. Emotions give rise to thoughts by motivating them through animation. The spark as an inspired idea, heats the water creating a vapor as a cloud-like formation, creating thought-forms as ghost-like images. The more we think about them with strong emotions, the more defined they become. The more passionately we speak them as a means of expression, the quicker they manifest as a living reality.

 

When an idea as a thought-process is introduced into the mind as a form of suggestion by willingly allowing it in through a passive state, or magnetizing it through curiosity that draws it in through an active state, our mind begins developing it by thinking about it. Our emotional response to our own thoughts infuses the idea with meaning that fashions it as a personal reality. We personalize the idea making it our own, by how we develop it. Because all personal development is from the inside out, what we lend our thoughts to serve to develop us accordingly. We first choose them by allowing them in, and then use our will by imagining them, which floods our system with corresponding chemistry called hormones, that we experience as emotion that aligns and unifies our whole-being to the vibratory quality of the feeling idea. The idea that we imagine literally affects us at the molecular level because it forms a systematized process of correspondences that changes our chemical composition.

Just as our conscious mind serves to program our subconscious mind by how it chooses to use the imagination to create a virtual memory as a surrogate reality, which translates conscious thought into the language of the subconscious as experience, it simultaneously alters the memory of our cells, or our DNA by altering its memory through its indigenous language of chemistry. The body functions at the molecular level as energetic intelligence that formulates corresponding chemistry.

 

Alchemy, the Sacred Art of personal transformation from lower states to higher states of moral perfection that is self-induced and maintained, is the mastery of the mind to direct its own thoughts married to positive emotions that completely reprogram the entire system as an organic correspondence. The key faculty of the mind that codes, decodes and forms a unified interpretation in a variety of languages as analogies and correspondences, is the imagination. How we use our imagination to think about things is intimately creating us at the same time. The imagination as the primary function of the mind that spans the full range of consciousness “is” our personal power of choice and free will. We choose what we think about and it restructures us as a modified state-of-mind that aligns our whole being with the vibratory quality of the idea itself as transformed into personal experience. The internal experience birthed in the imagination becomes the memory that serves as a re-patterning that gives the subconscious a new program to operate out of.

The Nature of a Paradigm Shift – “Altering your State as a shift in Vibratory Frequency”

afterlife-soul
In order to get a functional understanding of what happens during or by way of a paradigm shift, we have to break the idea down into its corresponding aspects, and how they function to create a unified perception that we call “reality” as personal experience. A paradigm represents a perceptual model as a dynamic patterning that’s an interwoven network of ideas (beliefs, values, preferences, memories, etc.) that work in a harmonious manner to co-create a consistent perception as a dynamic theme that incorporates all abstract and ultimately neutral ideas into a congruent story-line that’s fashioned according to the paradigm we use to view it through and the meaning we give things as a result. The meaning which forms the “theme” for the story we tell about something, and the reality we shape as a result, is the formative mechanism that reshapes everything into an offspring of itself by how we incorporate it into an over-all story which provides us with the means to explain or describe it in an attempt to make “sense of it”.

 
A paradigm can be thought of as a state-of-mind that’s a form of vibratory frequency that fluctuates within a set range of potential as a form of wave-length. Our state, which can also be thought of as our feeling-mood, determines what type of memories we’re capable of accessing, and what type of thoughts we think about as analogous to those memories, and what range of emotions we experience in response to them. A frequency as a state-of-mind or mood can only access memories as formed ideas that match that state (are of the same frequency), or that were created while in the same frame of mind, form the basic frequency of our paradigm as a form of habituated or fixated state as our normal state and the “basic model” (patterning) that we look through as a means of producing more of the same type of experiences. Memories serve as a filter for seeing through that (re)interprets everything to mean the same thing, and tell the same type of story about it as a result. In this way we develop themes out of “meaning”, that become our primary theme for telling stories about everything, that express the same meaning making them congruent with (an offspring of) our over-all life-story that we’re always in the process of telling. This is a form of holographic effect (the part is a smaller version of the whole), or how the mind produces fractal patterns as offspring of a larger, parental pattern. Fractals are smaller stories that are of the same nature (theme) as the larger story. It’s the basic law that governs regeneration as self-creation.

 

 

The paradigm we build up and maintain through telling a consistent story as a thematic interpretation that reforms everything to mean what we need it to mean in order to keep telling our story, becomes or reflects our state as a vibratory frequency that only has access to certain types of memory as the reality that the state naturally generates as an expression of it. When we experience a paradigm shift, which only comes through experience of some kind, it simultaneously alters our state of mind, and we obtain access to a different level of memory (thoughts and ideas) as perceptual abilities necessary to support a different type of reality as a modification of our existing model. Our mental model is our ‘perceptual lens’ which acts as a filtering mechanism which abstracts from the environment only what matches it as elements that can be reformed through an interpretation that makes them mean something different by the story we tell about it.

wired brain
A paradigm shift upgrades our model by restructuring it into a new configuration that allows us to view things in a new way and see something different or more as a result. Once a paradigm shift takes place, and we acquire the ability to look at things from a whole new perspective, and we begin building more ideas out of the new perspective, undergoing consistent shifts as a form of evolutionary unfolding or quickening, it alters our overall state as our mental atmosphere, which makes new ideas available, while cutting off other ideas that were formulated and born out of the perception that the old model formed. After a series of shifts that serve to upgrade and modify our current model, the perceptions of the old model fade, become vague and detached, and in some cases forgotten all together.

 
For this reason, once a drastic enough shift has taken place, we can no longer function out of the mentality of our previous version. In some cases when the growth is substantial, you literally lose the memory of that level altogether, and can’t relate to it any more. Because of this factor, as we grow and alter our state as our vibratory frequency, our life-style and situations change as the new behaviors that are formed out of the new perceptions. Relationships that were formed while in the previous paradigm no longer support us, and instead act to hold us back by holding us to the level of consciousness we were at when we developed them, and the group paradigm (behavioral dynamic) that formed as the basis of the relationship itself. Any relationship that doesn’t naturally grow together by the same means or through shared interests has a limited life-span and is ultimately grown beyond and replaced with a sense of alienation, no longer relating to one another.

 
This is very common in relationships of all kinds, but especially in intimate relationships. Personal relationships where one person is growing and developing themselves and thereby undergoing constant change, and the other person isn’t, naturally grow apart. The one that doesn’t grow, or grows in a different way, only acts to hold the other person to the old way of being, and therefore acts to stagnate their growth. This creates a feeling of frustration from being held back or of having the past always brought up as a means of establishing the present to be a continuation or more of the same. Often others won’t allow our growth or don’t understand it and act in ways that attempt to hold us to the same patterns or ways of being that we’ve grown beyond, and so their behaviors towards us no longer stimulate the same response.
wormholes

A paradigm shift as a shift in our vibratory frequency or soul’s mood and mental outlook, creates a ripple effect that ultimately acts to transform all areas of our life to incorporate the modification and begin expressing a new reality as a result. Those dedicated to growth as the attainment and application of knowledge, keep themselves in a constant state of transformation as personal evolution, and their life directly reflects it as constant changes in how they live, feel and think. Because of this they seldom remain in one situation for an extended period of time unless they can grow within that situation and transform it as a correlation to and with themselves.

 
As we grow and transform ourselves, we literally lose access to any memory of the previous state. We can’t remember what we used to feel, or how we thought, or what our perception of something was. We lose touch with our past and our beginning and become totally submerged in the present, while developing and building up ideas as new forms of experience produced by a new level of perception, that allows us to constantly create a new world on a moment-by-moment basis as being “in” the flow of life, which at some point, once growth and transformation has been established as the norm, becomes a way of life. If we begin fixating and living out of definite ideas about things that no longer breathe and grow into endless variations through unique applications, and instead settle into a ritualistic life of mundane habits, we stop the flow of life, stop growing and expanding as an individual, and begin the slow process of dying through mental decay. We begin losing interest in life, fear change, cling mercilessly to security, and quit trying new things or curiously craving new experiences.

 
By transforming our paradigm, altering our state and raising or expanding or vibratory frequency, we tune into different ideas as the building blocks for reality and how we identify with our own creations. You don’t have to overcome your past or keep living out of the same memories while telling the same type of stories and succumbing to unconscious tendencies. All we have to do is attain knowledge consistently through devoted study that undergoes a constant growth process that systematically modifies our paradigm, shifting our vibration, and losing the ability to access old memories, while creating a new form of reality out of new ideas born in the present, that evolve and grow the memories themselves as the new experiences which serve to alter our character and our identity and how we experience (create) life that lives a new kind of story as a natural expression. In this way we grow our soul by evolving it to new and higher states, by employing the knowledge of God as Universal laws that we move into and become one with in order to use them in our own life and transform ourselves by becoming more “god-like”. Because all of life operates according to the same set of laws, by gaining knowledge of and becoming one with God as Law, we create in an intelligent and deliberate manner, instead of creating in error due to ignorance of Natural laws and our ability to use them in a deliberate manner with a sense of awareness.

ethereal body
Just as we transform the memories of this life by growing beyond them to a higher frequency as a general state-of-mind that we act to cultivate, we also change our soul’s memory by the experiences it creates, resolving karma born out of unconscious memory directly associate to state and the reality it produces as an inherent pattern. By shifting our paradigm, we shift our perception of reality, and we “change” the patterns as themes for producing experiences as the creator of that reality. The vibratory state we cultivate and maintain through the acquisition of higher-knowledge, alters the reality produced by our mind as a projection or filters used for interpretation that restructure it into themes that give it meaning and forms stories out of it that express and give life to the meaning, making it “real” as a personal creation.

 
By shifting our paradigm, we shift our whole life experience that’s produced by it, and evolve ourselves accordingly. Yet knowledge that’s only attained in theory, and held as a form of intellectual exercise that’s never actually applied and learned through experience, doesn’t produce an actual paradigm shift. Only the application of that knowledge to produce an experience of it (create by way of it), integrates it instantaneously and systematically modifies all areas of our paradigm that pertain to it. Experience is a synthesizing mechanism that sets or alters our vibration. We only “know” through direct experience and are no longer required to believe. Experience becomes memory as a form of thematic programming that shapes and transforms us according to our own creations as the expression of our paradigm or vibratory patterning as a dynamic matrix for generating personal realities.

 
Experience is what “vibrates us”, not the mere thought or imagining. These merely form the patterns as conceptualization necessary to produce a form of template as a mini-model that provides the means for structuring experience accordingly. Experience is becoming the channel for the knowledge in physical form that creates an experience that forms new memory for creating more of the same type of experiences. We become the channel for knowledge as the expression of it, or the means by which it experiences itself through us, as us. Only experience as present awareness modifies our vibratory frequency as our soul’s essence and becomes an engrained part of us that’s eternal in nature and carried forward into the death state forming the basis for the vibratory frequency of other incarnations as our subconscious mind, predisposition and natural tendencies. The mind is a reality generating machine that produces thematic experiences based on its vibratory frequency and the information carried on that frequency. To change our creative ability to structure experience, we have to change our mind, in the most literal sense of actual perception that forms our natural behavior, all of which are ultimately our own creation.

The Power of Words – “Shaping Realities”

The words we speak not only express the mental images running through our mind, but act to shape those same type of mental images in the mind of whomever we’re speaking to. We not only form mental pictures based on the words themselves being used, but also coordinate feelings and emotions associated with the mental pictures based on “how” they’re being spoken in terms of tone, voice quality, attitude, or the emotional state of the person speaking them. Words not only form our communication to others, but are also how we communicate with ourselves through thinking. Thoughts are a form of internal self-dialogue that as we think them, we form corresponding mental imagery as the reality inherent in the words.

Because words have images associated to them, they form the basis for creating reality, first by thinking, feeling, and forming them internally as imagined realities, then by expressing that same reality externally by speaking them or telling another about the same internal imagining. You can tell how a person thinks by listening to them talk. They talk about the same things in the same way that they think about them. While many people believe that what they perceive and therefore communicate out of is and objective reality that’s being experienced in much the same way by everyone else, the fact of the matter is, everyone is always creating a subjective experience of an outer reality that’s unique to them, which is structured by and expresses their mental paradigm, which we all use to create our experiences.

Every single individual who also has an individual mind, is constantly creating their own personal version of a shared reality. No two people experience the same conditions, circumstances, or event the same way. While we all do share universal qualities and characteristics that form a theme of sorts, and we all posses a mind that operates according to the same principles, each one of us is formulated in a slightly different way that forms an entirely unique personality. Each one of us is also comprised of a soul which is fashioned over time based on how we perceive reality, and creates our experiences of that reality forming memories, and who we become by way of our own creations.

Cosmic_creativity
Our thoughts, which come to us as ideas being expressed verbally as a conversation we’re always holding with ourselves, that can often involve several sub-personalities that appear to be discussing the same thing from different perspectives, or arguing their point in a form of debate, are how we form consistent realities that are all built around or out of a general meaning. Those thoughts as words spoken internally to ourselves form a consistent reality as a dynamic series of stories that all share or come out of the same basic theme, as what we could call fractal patterns (smaller patterns as the offspring of the parent pattern). These thematic stories evolve out of experiences that had significant emotional impact that formed memories that are used to form a basic story-line. These emotional memories become the basis for the thematic content of our most fundamental thoughts.

These “themes” are the “structuring mechanism” that forms our perceptual lens as an interpretation. As we perceive through these thematic patterns, we literally abstract and reorder into a new pattern the elements in an existing situation necessary to tell our story about it, while ignoring or not even noticing and including anything that contradicts or disproves our story. The mind is selective in what its able to perceive based on the mental filters as the model or energetic structure of the mind, which only tunes into and “sees” what is of the same nature or vibratory frequency as it is. The frequency is a thematic pattern or energetic structure that forms the basis for creating personal realities out of common elements and aspects in our outer surroundings.

Your thoughts as self-communication, or words spoken to yourself internally, are how you’re programming yourself through suggestions that become the basis for how and what you experience as your perception of reality. Your thoughts as words that form mental impressions as movie like scenarios that tell a specific type of story by how it frames everything, is what you could think of as your vibratory frequency, and how you’re tuned (self-programmed), which forms the basis for what type of thoughts you broadcast as well as receive, and what type of people and situations you naturally attract, notice, and interact with.

 

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and with the Word God called forth all of life”

afterlife-soul

The power of the word is that it gives the mind a pattern as a form of template to shape astral light (the mental essence that shapes images) into living realities in the imagination. As we continue thinking the same type of thoughts, telling ourselves the same type of stories, and telling our stories to others, forming our reality in their minds also in reference to us, we act to systematically build-up that idea, strengthening it by controlling the imagination of others to form the same reality as a consensus, and use that reality to interpret all other realities, making it “real” as our experience. By recognizing our own power to create our own experiences and self-reflecting on how we think on a regular basis, and listen to ourselves talk to others, we can “see” that our life is actually our own creation as the corresponding outer reality that matches our inner reality. It’s not that we literally produce the outer, but rather filter out only the elements in the outer that can be reorganized to tell our story using them. We structure reality as an ordering-organizing system that takes any situation, and only “sees” (notices, pulls out, and reorganizes it) what can readily be used to tell the same type of story. We only see what we’re programmed to see. We reorganize situations by how we interpret them. Our interpretation comes through a dynamic series of interwoven mental filters that accentuate and embellish some things, while leaving out or eliminating other things altogether. Anything that can’t be used logically to tell our story, or that would contradict and therefore disprove our story, we ignore or fail to even notice.

molecules of brain

Words form patterns as a means of structuring reality to give it meaning. We think that we say what we do as a means of describing or expressing what’s happening “to us”, or as an objective interpretation of an obvious reality that everyone else is seeing the same way, without ever realizing that our description is whats actually creating our reality, not the other way around. This is because we have this idea that experience and reality are the same thing. That perception is reality. That reality is an objective, neutral and finite idea that’s playing out the same way for everybody, and that everybody is seeing the same thing that we are. And while this is partially true, reality, like all of life, is infinite, and being created out of a universal theme as objective – shared reality, that’s being used as the basis for creating an infinite number of personalized versions by every person-mind that’s apart of the same outer events. We’re always taking a universal idea as a basic archetype or generic idea that contains an infinite variety of potential based on how its used by the individual mind to create a personalized version of the same idea. Our individual mind, like the universal mind, is bestowed with the ability to create its own reality, and self-create by way of that reality.

We are the only one creating our experiences based on how we’re being stimulated by the outer world. All outer stimulus only comes by way of a shared vibration as a pattern or characteristic through resonance. We are only affected by what is of the same nature as we are in our outer environment. Outer stimulus is only capable of awakening and bringing into activities what’s already inside of us. How we’re stimulated and therefore influenced is based on what’s brought out in us and developed through an interaction as a behavioral dynamic that forms the basis for the story we begin telling ourselves “about” things as a way of making sense out of them , that make them “mean” something. The meaning we give things, means something about us, about others, and about the world or the way things are. This forms the basic theme that fits multiple levels of reality into a congruent idea that’s consistent and therefore believable.
