LEARNING TO COMMUNICATE WITH YOUR HIGHER SELF
Imagine what life would be like if each of us received a friendly user's guide to our mind. Well, it seems we do have one but we write it as we go along. Each step on the journey becomes recorded and ordered in a sequence or time line. The mind loves to create patterns, and often these patterns create the challenge of resistance met with in life. Of all the bodies, the mental body can be the most stubborn and fearful. Often it is the most resistant to change because it knows that it has survived through its past patterns-so why change? However, achieving peace of mind is a highly desirable state and allows harmony and clarity to prevail in all aspects of life.
The most valuable part of the owner's manual would define each mind's role and the extent of influence it has over all the other bodies. Understanding the functions of the higher-mind, unconscious mind, and conscious mind as well as how each assimilates information, is the primary key for greater mental capabilities. By taking into account these linear definitions and labeling each of the parts, is a form of separation. Remember, the mind works in a holographic manner. Understanding comes from separating their individual functions thus enabling realignment to function in greater unity and harmony.
Spiritual consciousness and the I Am Presence are the realm of the Higher-Mind. Information becomes channeled down into the physical unconscious mind through the crown chakra. Geometric symbols, color, energy waves, love, or light vibrations, etc., are the forms which encodes the information. Inherently, the unconscious mind knows the code with which to interpret the messages. These abstract thoughts contain pertinent directions to guide us on our mission and define our spiritual purpose.
A definition of the unconscious mind is that all-knowing part of the physical mind containing the records of all information from the past, present, and future. It records the experiences received from the emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual bodies. It is the part of the mind not in our conscious awareness and is the source from which conceives as creativity and abstraction. Having a focused intention increases its ability to perceive and understand information being generated by the subtle bodies, Source, and Spirit. It is also instrumental for establishing and enacting new realities. Therefore, achieved by overcoming old realities based on activities generated from this time and space plane in which the conscious mind exists. Once the conscious or logical mind releases its rigid control and integrates with the unconscious mind, then Spiritual direction prevails. This integration allows better guidance to the conscious or unconscious mind, through heightened perceptions such as; telepathy, intuition, communication with other realms, and the ability to spontaneously heal one's self and the planet.
The ego comprises the conscious mind, forming the personality through the learned beliefs, values, attitudes, and judgments based on life experiences. The conscious, also known as the rational or logical mind, thinks in a linear process, which maintains living in the consensual reality. It only knows what it experiences to be the path of survival and has an invested interest to be in control. This need is the instrumental factor that creates resistance to change.
Maintaining its dominance often requires that it ignore messages from the unconscious and what the other bodies need. This rigid tendency to adhere to what is the established norm creates an intense conflict between all the bodies and produces mental confusion that maintains density through its fear.
The owner's manual would describe the unconscious mind as the bridge between Heaven and Earth. As such, it becomes caught in-between two bosses. Prime Directives outline the unconscious mind's duties, which include maintaining and ensuring the emotional, mental, and physical body's survival. Calling upon the template of imprinted memory of perfect health becomes a powerful tool for healing the body. Dis/ease occurs in the body because it follows orders from the conscious mind. The unconscious mind listens to the mind chatter, especially what is being said consciously, then acts on the information as if it was a personal order. An example of this is when you repeatedly declare someone to be a pain in the neck, eventually whenever you are around that person, you develop a pain in the neck. The most significant concern in which the body begins to develop a dis/ease to accommodate a command comes from repeatedly declaring "I wish I were Dead." This illuminates the significance of what you say and think, and it shows how evidently important it is to be conscious of what messages you are sending yourself. The unconscious mind takes everything personally! Another factor the mind does not recognize is negatives; so by constantly dwelling on what you do not want to happen magnetizes that possibility for you. If someone says to you "do not think of a blue tree," how can you not think of a blue tree? A main function of the unconscious is to store and organize all memories because it is the domain of emotional impressions. It will repress highly charged, unresolved, negative emotions to protect the survival of the mind and body. It will surface these memories with a little prodding, and when it feels the time is safe, will release them for resolution. It also controls the reception of all perceptions that come through the conscious mind and telepathic sources. In addition, all the body's sensory input becomes routed into the unconscious, and it decides how to respond. For example ,whether to act upon or repress the information. The unconscious mind, which is subservient to the ego, often chooses to filter out and disregard these messages, or it deciphers the meaning according to the conscious mind's belief system and reality. It generates decisions on how to distribute and transmit these perceptions. In addition, it will filter perceptions by deleting, distorting, and generalizing information to function and maintain the conscious minds known and established reality. It is also crucial to realize that the unconscious responds through instinctual habits of what is the known way of survival, which is from the ego's instructions that support its reality. This established procedure remains until it becomes trained to be Spiritually directed. These instructions from the ego are the filters created from our conscious mind's experiences from this realm of time and space. They are instrumental in forming the ego or personality's attitudes, decisions, memories, language, judgments, and beliefs that maintain the consensual reality.
Another prime factor of the unconscious mind is that it is highly suggestive. This is the reason it is so detrimental to constantly dwell on negative messages or to be bombarded with other people's negative programming. Hypnosis can be an affective therapy to overcome old thought patterns, by leading to insights for instilling the development of new habits. Although it also requires constant attention upon thoughts to overcome the repetitive and reactionary nature of old habits. Therefore this illustrates the point of why it is imperative to have constant conscious vigilance of the messages the mind chatter is generating. This affords the opportunity to undertake conscious control and responsibility for redirecting your thoughts and behaviors. Vigilance also identifies when an old tape begins to play, and immediate recognition allows you to stop that train of thought from continuing. Achieving this comes by gently informing the mind your old reality formulates that information, then focus your attention on the new chosen outcome. To further enhance the training process, reaffirm your new reality by visualization or defining your intention, and eventually, over time, the old thought pattern becomes replaced with the new one. Diligent awareness is an instrumental key for training the mind to acquire new realities, and the ability to overcome resistance when making changes promotes the establishment and acceptance of new patterns. In addition, this promotes making choices based on information discerned from the present situation as opposed to inappropriate responses that are reactions to past and learned behavior. It is crucial to recognize attached thoughts to highly charged emotions as the source enacting inappropriate responses. If so, resolving the issue first will achieve greater success. An important note is to be gentle with the psyche because it is like a child. Using harsh recriminations and allegations does not stop a pattern-it only creates more resistance, as well as the possibility of repressing the issue deeper into the unconscious, making it more difficult to resolve. In addition, if not dealing with an issue in a loving manner, it possibly becomes detrimental to self-esteem. Using the "Embracing into Love" technique, described in another chapter, in-conjunction with the oils relevant to the issue gently assists to overcome and resolve an issue.
Another attribute of the unconscious mind is its ability to translate abstract symbols, a crucial factor for communicating with the Higher-Self. Symbols are often the language that the Higher-Self uses to encode messages because form contains energy. The unconscious mind knows how to innately decipher the cryptic symbols and forms, though the conscious mind has no comprehension and ignores their existence. Messages from the Higher-Self sent to the unconscious mind become automatically recorded and stored, until the appropriate time for acting upon the information. Intuition evolves from the inherent knowing of the unconscious mind and its ability to perceive all the bodies sensory input, as well as observing and hearing the unseen realm. Acceptance of this information by the conscious mind depends on how much trust it has on its validity.
An instrumental factor that builds trust in intuition is when the logical mind feels safe to acknowledge its significance. Through consistent proof presented to the logical mind, demonstrating intuition as a valuable resource, teaches that realization. The process for consciously educating the logical mind to trust in the accuracy of intuition impressions succeeds by repetitive recognition and validation of each intuition flash. Therefore, by consciously reaffirming the accuracy of intuition, the value of the information becomes demonstrated to the logical. Thereby, intuition becomes relied upon by repeated accuracy. Thus a heightened awareness becomes a common state of mind. In addition, intuition helps influence the logical mind to relinquish its need to be in control. This easily transpires once the logical mind feels secure that the intuition information is reliable. Furthermore, heightened perception abilities corroborate to increase discernment abilities, which also promotes self- trust. As a result, the body, mind, and emotions become harmoniously integrated with the personality, which disengages inner-turmoil and confusion, thereby enabling a more readily acceptance of Spiritual direction. The compliant collaboration of the different aspects of self enables bridging the separation between Spirit and ego. Furthermore, it anchors more love or light energy into the physical body, which stimulates dormant encodements. Thereby, living life more intuitively eases the physical body's ability to live comfortably with increased amounts of love and joy.
