6 Steps To Begin Using Creative Visualization

image

Creative visualization is a type of mindfulness exercise that can be used to promote success in every area of life. Are you looking for your dream job, on the search for a suitable partner or wondering how you can develop more self-confidence? Try this basic guide to start using creative visualization to your advantage.

Step One: Set The Mood
It’s vital to be in a relaxed and positive state of mind when you attempt creative visualization. For example, you might try taking a quiet walk in a peaceful area, soaking in a hot bath or listening to mellow instrumental music. Once you’re feeling relaxed, find a place where you won’t be disturbed and can be comfortable for the duration of the process. The longer you are able to spend working on your visualization, the more effective it is likely to be.

Step Two: Enter A Meditative State
Creative visualization tends to be most intense and meaningful if you take the time to do a straightforward meditative exercise before you begin. For most people, all that is needed is a few minutes spent focusing on slow, steady breathing.

Step Three: Visualize Your Goal
Once your mind feels still and receptive, start crafting an image of the thing you want, taking as long as you like to build up all of the details. For example, if you are working towards a major promotion at work, imaging yourself receiving the announcement and picture the positive reactions of people around you. Try to make the environment as realistic as possible, and do your best to experience not just the sights but also the sounds, scents and tactile sensations associated with your goal.

Step Four: Hold Onto The Feelings Associated With Your Visualization
Although the most important part of creative visualization is the process described in step three, you are more likely to see your desires manifest in your life if you allow your visualization experiences to influence the rest of your day. Try to hold onto the feelings of pride, happiness, confidence and peace that you experience when you picture your goal, and repeatedly affirm your belief that you will soon attract the things you desire.

Step Five: Make A Habit Of Using Creative Visualization
Ideally, you should make creative visualization a daily part of your life. Most people find it useful to set aside a specific time for the visualization (such as a fifteen minute period before going to sleep), but the most important thing is that you maintain your ritual of visualizing your goal until you obtain what you want in your life.

Step Six: Work Hard To Achieve Your Goal
Although creative visualization is incredibly powerful and can certainly play a huge role in allowing you to develop the life you’ve always wanted, you substantially increase your chances of success if you also make concrete steps towards your goals. Take every relevant opportunity you encounter, be brave, and believe in a happier, more fulfilling life.

The Study Of Spirit: The Merkabah

merkaba02

Even extra-dimensional super-beings need to get around, and while a Prius may be environmentally sound it can hardly be considered a safe vessel for traversing the universe’s many pitfalls and dangers. The void, dark creatures and inter-dimensional travel can negatively affect the consciousness of any being, and since it is necessary to travel on a celestial or astral plane once in a while we should probably invest some time on the vehicle which, according to mythology, we should all be driving.

I’m talking of course about the Merkabah.

The word Merkabah is taken from Hebrew and quite literally means “Chariot of the Soul”. It is an etheric construct designed to protect the riders’ consciousness, which takes the form of a star tetrahedron- a sort of three-dimensional star of David. In the strictest possible sense the origins of the Merkabah in mythology stem back to the Torah, in the visions of Ezekiel, and indeed its commentaries and appendixes. The description of said chariot reads thusly:

  • It is said that these chariots (the Merkabah) were driven by beings with the “Likeness of a Man.”
  • The ‘chariot’ itself is formed of four “living creatures”- which further research found to be the visible form of aether
  • The bodies of the creatures which make up the Merkabah are “like that of a human being”, but each of them has four faces, corresponding to the four directions the chariot can go (north, east south and west). The faces are that of a man, a lion, an ox (later changed to a cherub in Ezekiel 10:14) and an eagle. These angels are called the Chayot.
  • Each Chayot angel also has four wings. Two of these wings spread across the length of the chariot and connected with the wings of the angel on the other side. This created a sort of ‘box’ of wings that formed the perimeter of the chariot. With the remaining two wings, each angel covered its own body.
  • Below, but not attached to the feet of the “Chayot” angels are other angels that are shaped like wheels. These wheel angels, which are described as “a wheel inside of a wheel”, are called Ophanim.
  • The face of the man always faces East, and looks up at the driver, who sits upon a “throne of sapphire”.

Now this sounds like an incredibly creepy thing to drive- more akin to some John Carpenter body-horror than mythological texts, but let’s not forget the simple fact that the Torah is a document disjointed from space and time (a topic for a later discussion) and, like all religious texts, is best taken to mean a little more than what it is saying. Now, the power source of the Merkabah described in the Torah is actually expanded upon in the Bible: A third type of angel called the Seraphim.

Now, anyone who has studied theology is well aware of the supposed power of the Seraphim or “burning angels”, and according to the bible the power of these beings was transmitted in vertical patterns, ascending and descending along the perimeter of the Merkabah. These pulses of literally glowing energy were what provided the actual etheric energy which allowed the chariot to move.

Ok, so we’ve gone over the basics of Merkabah construction, we have the Chayot, the chassis, the ‘wheels’ or drive system, the Ophanim and the power source, the seraphim. Three key components which are prerequisite to any self-powered vehicle today, be they automotive, nautical or aeronautic, the Merkabah follows roughly the same concept, except rather than metal, wood and fuel the entire construct is that of aether brought to form by the will of the Soul. The generation of the Merkabah is not something which simple beings such as us can really attain, or rather this is what the book of Ezekiel originally says, hence the original (mis)translation: The Chariot of God.

According to less conventional sources over the aeons it has been more than possible for beings of a lesser dimensional value (ie. us) to generate, sustain and travel using Merkabah technology, however due to global misinformation and loss of practical knowledge (another topic to be discussed later) the practise has been all but lost to us. The methodology by which beings lesser than Gods can create Merkebah of their own, while purely speculative, can be summed up in two very different (and each equally valid) binary ways. These methods may or may not be pure fiction, and have little scientific merit or evidence, but they are fun to write about nonetheless. Allow me to elaborate:

1: The ‘Natural’ Merkabah

The ‘Natural’ Merkabah is the method by which mythological spiritual figures (including but not limited to Thoth, Ra and the ascended masters) traversed not only time, but dimensional barriers. These forms were generally thought to be frail, usually only allowed for one person to travel, and were generated entirely by the direct manipulation of one’s personal chakras. Because of this the range, power and capacity of each individual Merkabah was only as strong as the person conjuring it, which is not a failing in itself, but at the same time can be dangerous in the event of an astral calamity, providing only personal protection against such issues as the void and consciousness loss. In short, only powerful “right-brained” practitioners could create reliable, safe and expeditious Merkabah constructs by crystallizing their chakra into protective forms.

2: The ‘Synthetic’ Merkabah

Utilizing the same Crystal Field Theory as a Christ Consciousness Grid (we really are getting into a lot of etheric structural engineering topics to be discussed at a later date) it is possible to transport vast numbers of consciousnesses and individuals using a Merkabah derived sheerly from the power of mathematics. By utilizing multi-dimensional structures to capture the power of Seraphim and transfer it into the drive force of Ophanim vast etheric structures can be places around an area and then transferred outwards along the Phi ratio onto a certain point. Evidence of this practice can be seen in modern Crystal Field Theory, which dictates that tetrahedral crystals can be seen to cause vibratory energy into an orbital structure (the same spinning that powers a natural Merkabah)- for more information, feel free to read up here. An excellent (although as yet unproven on this website) example of this is the ancient travel of Martian survivors to the continent of Atlantis, which utilized the use of a synthetic Merkabah.

2b: THE DANGERS OF SYNTHETIC MERKABAH

Now, this is where things get a little tricky. There have been cataclysms caused by the creation of faulty synthetic Merkabah; one such incident occurred somewhere around 26,000 years ago on earth, shortly after the impact of a meteor on what would become the Eastern United States. The power of a Merkabah is almost infinite (especially so in the case of synthetic Merkabah due to their mathematical nature), so the slightest miscalculation can, supposedly, tear apart the fabric of space and time itself. Now, I am not claiming this to be fact in any way, simply because the accounts which bring up these cataclysmic events are usually incredibly unreliable, but it should be noted that shortly after the impact of said meteor a large amount of radiation damage was recorded geologically in the areas around where it struck. This is not consistent with the effect of a meteor, as damage caused by radiation is usually lessened by the almost “nuclear” winter suffered after a strike.

Either way, since the matter of the space-rock was itself not radioactive it does beg the question “from where did this radiation originate”? Could it have been the use of a faulty Merkabah spewing Seraphim energy all over the place following the flawed creation of what, by necessity, must be perfect to function safely? That’s not for me to say- but it does provoke thought (and perhaps a follow-up investigation).

An afterthought: Merkabah and Me

Now, as any scholar of spiritual nature will tell you the travels supposedly performed while performing astral projection (or indeed Lucid Dreaming, if the spiritual component of this practice can ever be proven) are performed without the aid of a Merkabah- and this, for the most part, is true. Notice, however, that these travels take place exclusively on a plane known as the “Astral Plane”, and without the necessity interplanetary travel a Merkabah is both cumbersome and unnecessary. There are no dangers to be encountered while astral projecting, and as such there is no need for a Merkabah. As there is no tangible gravity on this plane there is also no need for the literal physical intervention of such a device, as flight and travel can be performed sheerly through will.

Astral projection is a topic for later discussion, however it should be noted that numerous incidents have been reported wherein higher beings have been encountered, channeled to or simply been described on the astral plane, and these incidents usually involve a Merkabah in some form (although usually not in so many words).

I’m not going to go into the truth of astral projection- real or not, the application of Merkabah during astral projection, while possible, should be seen as unnecessary.

How To Quit Negative Self-Talk & Get Happy

negative-self-talk-picture

Negative self talk! Why have we all fallen victim to this nasty state of bringing ourselves down? Let’s get one thing clear, self-talk isn’t just mindless chatter spiraling around in your head. It has a way of creating its own reality. Telling yourself you can’t do something can make that come true. Tell yourself you’ll never lose weight and it can be like eating a box of doughnuts. Tell yourself it’s too hard to find a new career and you will be likely to continue the cycle of disliking your old job and stay within that exact rut.

“Self-talk dictates how you relate to yourself and how you show up for other people. Let’s say you think you have nothing interesting to say. If you keep telling yourself that, other people are going to see you that way too.” – Franco Beneduce

People who think negatively tend to be less outgoing and have weaker social networks than positive thinkers. Multiple studies link positive emotions with more satisfying relationships, more romance and even lower rates of divorce and separation.

The more you focus on negative events or shortcomings, the harder it is to put them behind you. In a survey of 231 college students, those with a positive outlook in life were more likely to look back on negative events and report how much better things are for them now. There are lessons in every challenge and an opportunity for growth. Acknowledge a bad day as just that, a bad day, don’t allow a certain event, conversation or let down determine your happiness.

If negative self-talk came with an off switch, you could just flip it off and be done with it. But it doesn’t. It takes a plan and some work to tone it down. Learning to dispute negative thoughts might take time and practice, but it is worth every effort. Once you start looking at it you’ll probably be surprised by how much of your thinking is inaccurate, exaggerated, or focused solely on the negatives of the situation. Here are a few ways to work through it.

Focus On Something Else

Over-thinking involves focusing on a train of thought that goes around and around. You can stop that train of thought by focusing on something else, ANYTHING ELSE! Read a book, breathe, get outside for 5 minutes, rest, make lunch, whatever it takes to break that thought pattern. We can stay in the victim state forever if we don’t choose to break free of the patterns.

Dispute It

You might ask yourself, “Is that really true? Is there another way to look at this situation? Is thinking this way helping me to feel good or to achieve my goals?” You may also look for some benefits. If you missed that job promotion, are there any lessons for the future you can take from the situation? Or could another opportunity come out of it? Was that really right for you, for your path?

Listen To Your Body

Use your feelings as your cue to reflect on your thinking. Whenever you find yourself feeling depressed, angry, anxious or upset, use this as your signal to stop and become aware of your thoughts. I say this all of the time, your body knows exactly what you need, LISTEN TO IT!

So Why Do We Do It?

Why are you negatively talking down to yourself? BECAUSE YOU WANT TO BE BETTER! So why are we focusing on what is wrong, bad, not exactly where we want it to be and creating more of just that? Up until now you may have been unaware of your thoughts manifesting your reality, but you have the tools to build a healthier thought pattern now. Focus on what is going well in your life, I can promise you there are some! Dwelling on the past, what has gone wrong and what isn’t going right for you will only manifest more of those patterns for you. It’s a hard concept for some to accept that we are our own creators but until we believe that, we are continuing the cycle of giving away our own power.

Moving Forward – Get To The Source

Recognizing that your current way of thinking might be self-defeating can sometimes motivate you to look at things from a different perspective. You can conquer your negative self-talk today by challenging yourself with the questions above every time you catch yourself thinking something negative to yourself. When you find the source of why you do it, you can kick it for good.

Our Physical World Isn’t Really Physical At All

reality-illusion

Niels Bohr, a Danish Physicist who made significant contributions to understanding atomic structure and quantum theory once said: “if quantum mechanics hasn’t profoundly shocked you, you haven’t understood it yet.” Quantum physics has left scientists all over the world baffled, especially with the discovery that our physical material reality, isn’t really physical at all. “Everything we call real is made of things that cannot be regarded as real.” It seems philosophers of our ancient past were right, our senses really do deceive us.

Again, our physical material reality really ISN’T physical at all. The meaning, significance and implications of these findings within our quantum world have led to a plethora of ideas and theories, some of which lay inside the label of “pseudo-science.”  This article will present scientific evidence that clearly show the connections between consciousness and what we call reality and how these can no longer be denied. It will also ponder the implications of this knowing, and how this realization plays an important role in the potential transformation of our planet, at a time when we need it the most.

Scientific understandings change continuously throughout human history.  Old “knowings” are constantly dismissed as we come across new ones. Even with our current understanding about the laws of physics, it could have some loopholes, especially with the recent disclosure of the black budget. We now know that trillions of dollars are going towards projects that the human race knows nothing about. Other phenomenon, like zero-point energy, extracting energy and heat from electromagnetic zero-point radiation via the Casimir force have shown to be correct and conclusive -for more information on these sources, please click here. Some of these ideas threaten our current understanding of physics, but how can we even have an understanding of physics when what we call ‘matter’ isn’t even real? How can we understand it if when we observe an atom at its tiniest level the behavior of that atom changes? The quantum world is definitely a weird one, and it’s safe to say that we don’t understand it, but we do recognize the significance and potential it has to help transform our world. We are starting to recognize that non-physical properties govern the universe, and we are turning our attention towards consciousness and the role it plays with regards to the physical make up of our reality.

The notion that the atom was the smallest particle in the universe fell with the discovery that the atom itself is made up of even smaller, subatomic elements. What was even more shocking was the revelation that these subatomic particles emit various “strange energies.”. Proponents would argue that the findings within quantum physics only apply and are significant at the subatomic level, but to those I say, are we not all existing at the subatomic level? When we observe ourselves and our physical environment at the smallest level, are we not made up of atoms? Are we not made up of subatomic particles? Are we not what we observe?

At the turn of the ninetieth century, physicists started to explore the relationship between energy and the structure of matter. In doing so, the belief that a physical, Newtonian material universe that was at the very heart of scientific knowing was dropped, and the realization that matter is nothing but an illusion replaced it. Scientists began to recognize that everything in the Universe is made out of energy.

Quantum physicists discovered that physical atoms are made up of vortices of energy that are constantly spinning and vibrating, each one radiating its own unique energy signature. Therefore, if we really want to observe ourselves and find out what we are, we are really beings of energy and vibration, radiating our own unique energy signature -this is fact and is what quantum physics has shown us time and time again. We are much more than what we perceive ourselves to be, and it’s time we begin to see ourselves in that light. If you observed the composition of an atom with a microscope, you would see a small, invisible tornado like vortex, with a number of infinitely small energy vortices called quarks and photons. These are what make up the structure of the atom. As you focused in closer and closer on the structure of the atom, you would see nothing, you would observe a physical void.. The atom has no physical structure, we have no physical structure, physical things really don’t have any physical structure! Atoms are made out of invisible energy, not tangible matter.

It’s quite the conundrum, isn’t it? Our experience tells us that our reality is made up of physical material things, and that our world is an independently existing objective one. Again, what quantum mechanics reveals is that there is no true “physicality” in the universe, that atoms are made of focused vorticies of energy-miniature tornadoes that are constantly popping into and out of existence.  The revelation that the universe is not an assembly of physical parts, suggested by Newtonian physics, and instead comes from a holistic entanglement of immaterial energy waves stems from the work of Albert Einstein, Max Planck, and Werner Heisenberg, among others.

Despite the findings of quantum physics many scientists today still cling onto the prevailing matter-oriented worldview, for no good reason at all. As mentioned earlier, these scientists restrict quantum theory’s validity to the subatomic world. If we know that matter isn’t physical, how can we further our scientific discovery by treating it as physical?
Despite the unrivaled empirical success of quantum theory, the very suggestion that it may be literally true as a description of nature is still greeted with cynicism, incomprehension and even anger. (T. Folger, “Quantum Shmantum”; Discover 22:37-43, 2001)

What Does This Mean?

What does it mean that our physical material reality isn’t really physical at all? It could mean a number of things, and concepts such as this cannot be explored if scientists remain within the boundaries of the only perceived world existing, the world we see. Fortunately, many scientists have already taken the leap, and have already questioned the meaning and implications of what we’ve discovered with quantum physics. One of these potential revelations is that “the observer creates the reality.”

A fundamental conclusion of the new physics also acknowledges that the observer creates the reality. As observers, we are personally involved with the creation of our own reality. Physicists are being forced to admit that the universe is a “mental” construction. Pioneering physicist Sir James Jeans wrote: “The stream of knowledge is heading toward a non-mechanical reality; the universe begins to look more like a great thought than like a great machine. Mind no longer appears to be an accidental intruder into the realm of matter, we ought rather hail it as the creator and governor of the realm of matter. (R. C. Henry, “The Mental Universe”; Nature 436:29, 2005)

We can no longer ignore the fact that our beliefs, perceptions and attitudes (consciousness) create the world.

Get over it, and accept the inarguable conclusion. The universe is immaterial-mental and spiritual.

One great example that illustrates the role of consciousness within the physical material world (which we know not to be so physical) is the double slit experiment. This experiment has been used multiple times to explore the role of consciousness in shaping the nature of physical reality.

A double-slit optical system was used to test the possible role of consciousness in the collapse of the quantum wave-function. The ratio of the interference pattern’s double-slit spectral power to its single-slit spectral power was predicted to decrease when attention was focused toward the double-slit as compared to away from it. The study found that factors associated with consciousness, such as meditation, experience, electrocortical markers of focused attention and psychological factors such as openness and absorption, significantly correlated in predicted ways with perturbations in the double-slit interference pattern.

Below is a video that demonstrates the double slit experiment from the film “What the bleep do we know.”

The problem presented in this experiment is called the quantum measurement problem (QMP). It refers to (as seen in the video) the intriguing effect whereby quantum objects appear to behave differently when observed than when unobserved. Scientists only view it as a problem because it disregards what our senses tell us, that the world is completely independent of observation. This problem has led to the study of the role of observation and measurement -which many believe to be one aspect of consciousness due to our mind-like capacity of awareness, attention and intention.

Observation not only disturb what has to be measured, they produce it. We compel the electron to assume a definite position. We ourselves produce the results of the measurement.

These types of experiments are not the only ones available that show consciousness does play a role, and is interconnected with our physical material reality in some way. The possible influence of human consciousness on the behavior of physical or biological systems has been subject to rigorous research and documentation for a number of years by several researches. Many of the experiments that use the role of human consciousness and how it affects our physical material world have been done so under the Department of Defense and military agencies, thus remaining classified -hidden science kept from the eyes of the mainstream public world.

One example of this is the 24-year government-sponsored program to investigate ESP and its potential use within the Intelligence Community. This operation was called STAR GATE , and most of its research and findings remain classified to this day. Another example is the research conducted by the CIA and NSA in conjunction with Stanford University.

Personally, I am compelled to believe that much of the science that deals with the “weirdness” of the quantum world, and many of its technological applications remains within the realm of the classified world. A world so secretive that it could be thousands, if not millions of years ahead of the mainstream world.

What Level Of Consciousness Do You Operate From?

Now that we’ve established that our physical makeup is one that is not physical at all, where do we go from here? We are atoms, made up of subatomic particles, that are actually a bunch of energy vibrating at a certain frequency. Us, these vibrational beings of energy exhibit consciousness, which has been shown to manifest, create and correlate to our physical material world. The next question to ask ourselves is: what level of consciousness/ state of being do we individually, and more importantly, collectively operate from?

Studies have shown that positive emotions and operating from a place of peace within oneself can lead to a very different experience for the person emitting those emotions and for those around them. At our subatomic level, does the vibrational frequency change the manifestation of physical reality? If so, in what way? We know that when an atom changes it’s state, it absorbs or emits electromagnetic frequencies, which are responsible for changing it’s state. Do different states of emotion, perception and feelings result in different electromagnetic frequencies? Yes! This has been proven.

Below is a video that uses the example of the heart, and sheds some light on some facts you may not have known.

The non-physical world is weird, isn’t it? The fact that material substances (matter) appear out of thin air, with lots of evidence to point to consciousness as that which is creating it, is pretty intriguing. One minute we are holding a physical object in our hand, like a coin, and then the next minute we realize that if we were to focus in on the coins material substance with an atomic microscope, we would see that we are actually holding nothing.

The best we can do for now is understand that the human race must operate from a place of peace, a place of co-operation and understanding. We must realize that we are all interconnected, that we can solve our problems here easily, given the fact that we have a number of solutions. The only way we will be able to implement and utilize these solutions is through a shift in consciousness. The world is indeed waking up. My soul knows the significance of these findings, it is difficult for the mind to explain. Hopefully I did a decent job.
