Every one of us contains the essence of peace, beauty and health. This essence is found in the energies that pattern our bodies and form our minds. What we do with these energies determines the course of our lives, the quality of our relationships and the condition of our bodies. Every thought you think creates a pattern and every pattern has an effect. You create your world each moment of the day through your perception. The world you create is an extension of your perception of yourself. To know your Self is to recognize yourself in everything.
You are a spiritual being having a physical experience. You have had many such experiences. We speak of previous lifetimes, but there is only one life. All physical experience is spiritual expression. You create experience to express yourself and you can know yourself by observing those expressions. You are on a path of self-discovery, for that is what life is. The events, relationships and circumstances in your life reflect your progress. All progress is a return to Self… to your essence.
Your energy, or waveform, extends from you in all directions and fills the Universe. It is your Higher Self and contains the forms of what you have created in all life experiences. These patterns project into your present lifetime and are formative in how you perceive yourself. Your Higher Self, or your supra-conscience, creates situations and circumstances in your life to allow you opportunities to release and clear creations from your waveform that you find unworthy. These are patterns that are not in resonance with your essence, which is love. You clear these patterns with your physical body, through its chakra system. You release them when you have a physical body, which is your organ for clearing. When you leave the body, whatever remains in your energy stays there until your next life experience.
Your creations are the products of your mind. Each thought gives rise to an energetic form, which becomes a pattern in your energy body. Thoughts of appreciation and gratitude, loving, caring thoughts, all produce beautiful, high frequency forms that are worthy of who you are. These patterns remain in your energy body and are your legacy. Thought forms involving negative judgment, hate, fear, resentment and malice lodge in your energy body and restrict the flow of your energy. These distorted, low frequency thought forms do not resonate with your essence and your Higher Self will attempt to eliminate these out of your energy.
You clear your distorted creations consciously and unconsciously. Conscious release utilizes techniques like prayer, meditation, yoga, and exercise. Unconscious release is accomplished in dreams, getting sick or having accidents. It is necessary to clear these forms from your energy body. Their accumulation leads to aging, sickness and death on a physical level and to separation and powerlessness on a spiritual level.
You enter this lifetime as a newborn with your aura clean of any thought forms. The aura, or the “Core Energy Body”, surrounds your physical body and extends outwards to approximately two feet in all directions. It is arranged into layers of structured energy, the emotional body, the mental body and the spiritual body. You accumulate blockage patterns as you learn the misperceptions of the world. The emotional body is where you store your patterns of guilt, jealousy, fear and shame. The mental body holds patterns of anger, distrust, hate, judgment, greed, and dishonestly. The spiritual body contains creations of depression, confusion, addiction and helplessness. In addition, the physical body holds patterns of denial, corruption, criticism, betrayal and despair, and the heart chakra harbors patterns of resentment. Covetousness can lodge in all levels.
Expanded Light Body
Your “Expanded Light Body” extends out beyond your Core Body to a radius of approximately 55 feet. It is the first of your five karmic energy levels and holds all of the patterns you created in past lifetimes as a human on Earth. These patterns are formative in who you have become today. Your Higher Self responds to life circumstances by bringing your distorted thought forms into your consciousness to be released. Failing to clear them recreates these patterns and recycles them into layers of your Core Body.
The issues in the Expanded Light Body apply to relationships and fears. Your relationship to your parents, siblings, partner, children, friends and strangers are all influenced now by reflections of patterns in your Expanded Light Body into your life. Your relationship to the Earth, your Guides and other forms of life are also present in the Expanded Light Body. Basic fears, such as fear of death, fear of disease and fear of rejection, have form in this level as well.
Your “Earth Body” is the next level of your energy and encompasses the Earth. Here you hold the patterns of lifetimes of your pre-human experiences. Science tells us that before the evolution of Homo sapiens, other human-like beings existed for hundreds of thousands of years. The issues surrounding these existences were survival fears and tribal and clan patterns. These patterns are reflected into your life in various circumstances today as well. They extend to family, ethnic, cultural and national identification. Prejudices favoring those areas are reflections of these deeper patterns into your life. Intolerance is a major issue of the Earth Body. Fear of survival has many guises as well, such as competition, gluttony, panic, and violence.
Solar System Body
The energy of your “Solar System Body” contains the entire solar system. It includes your creations from areas of our system other than on the Earth. The patterns formed during this time were those of control and manipulation. Control and manipulation of
life forms generated patterns of domination, superiority, arrogance and desire as well as enslavement, inferiority, distain and craving. These patterns are played out today in people, cultures and nations around the world.
Your “Galactic Body” spans millions of light years. It is as large as our galaxy and contains patterns from life experiences in other areas of our galaxy. Projections of lack into your life originate from thought forms located in your Galactic Body. The emotions of greed, covetness, insatiability, hunger and selfishness on the one hand, and anxiety, sadness, depression and despair on the other arise from the perception of lack. Hoarding wealth and living in poverty are both expressions of lack consciousness.
The Universe is filled with your “Universal Body”. It retains patterns from life experiences in Galaxies other than this one. The feeling of being separate from God and creation is the pattern at this level. All misperception arose from the perception of separateness. This is your deepest and most pervasive illusion. It was the first one that you created and it will be the last one that you release.
As stated earlier, you clear unworthy creations from your energy body through your chakra system. The clearing proceeds from the “inside-out”, which means that you must first clear everything lodged in your Core Energy Body before you begin releasing patterns from your Expanded Light Body. Everyone incarnating into this life brings major blockage patterns. These patterns are bottlenecks in your energy body and block you from effectively clearing any other level. Clearing these major patterns will allow your Higher Self to eliminate your unworthy creations quickly and naturally out of your energy body. The more balanced and heart centered you can stay, the more rapid and comfortable the clearing will be. Much of the clearing takes place in the dream state. Creating these situations in your dreams seems preferable to creating them in your waking life.
To know yourself is to realize the totality of who you are. Exploring this vastness is to comprehend the experiences of your life. You have created your life circumstances. Your conscious awareness of this is what moves you toward an enlightened state. The Buddha said that ignorance is what causes suffering. This does not mean ignorance of the mind, as in lack of knowledge. New-borns have little knowledge, but are as close to an enlightened state as most people get. The ignorance here pertains to the inability to distinguish truth from non-truth. It is an ignorance of the heart.
Training the heart to discern truth becomes the means towards enlightenment. The mind cannot grasp the truth. The mind sifts through information and content. Truth lies not in content, but in context. The mind becomes immersed in positionalities and its perception of the world and labels anything “true” that it agrees with. Truth is self-evident and needs no consensus. The mind cannot experience and the truth must be experienced. So, life is experiencing in the attempt to discern truth from non-truth.
It has been said that we are already enlightened, but are just not aware of it. We have not yet consciously experienced it. Those that have, describe it as completeness, stillness, bliss, coming home. There are no more questions, no more thoughts. There is complete awareness and knowingness, where everything is self-evident and needs no explanation.
“What do you seek, O Pilgrim on the Path?”
“Liberation from pain and freedom from all suffering”
“The answer to thy quest is already in thy heart. Listen, O Pilgrim, to the whispering of thy Soul. Know thyself… for in thyself is found all there is to be known.”
