Introduction

The world is a metaphysical holographic light manifestation of consciousness. The physical world that our mind and senses interact with is a small part of the whole phenomena of consciousness. Consciousness manifests layers of information systems organized in fractals because everything is essentially one manifestation.

Human consciousness is one type of manifestation with levels of awareness. Human consciousness functions in a range of frequencies and different levels of awareness that we experience as a subjective phenomenon, for example, being awake, sleeping, dreaming, imagining, euphoric, meditating, in flow, disassociated, hypnotized, etc.

If consciousness is the sun, then a human consciousness is a ray of sunlight. If consciousness is the ocean, then human consciousness is a wave or a cup of water. We are always a part of our source; we cannot be separated from it.

Evolving Consciousness

Consciousness is expanding and evolving through life on earth, and through the human vehicle. All sense inputs feed For consciousness to evolve and learn through human fractals it gives us a subjective experience by hiding a great degree of information from us. We operate from such an extreme lack of information that we believe ourselves to be an individual entity separate from each other and our surroundings. The human journey is a journey of awareness.

The journey of awareness is a spectrum experience that operates on a physical and metaphysical level at the same time. We are information systems within information systems. For human fractals to grow in awareness we must consciously seek it. This process of evolving expands our consciousness through the process of incorporating information into our information system in a harmonious way.

Each human fractal has a unique design based on a spectrum of information which allows each fractal to evolve their consciousness through a specific range of themes. This design allows for a greater number of fractals, possibilities, and opportunities while limiting the amount of information that each fractal consciously has access to.

Information Crystals

Each human fractal is an information crystal that we experience as our personality and body. Our information crystal moves through the fabric of consciousness that we experience as space and time. Everything we see, feel, hear, taste, smell, and think is information filtered through our information system. Our information crystal is a binary program that has a unique set of perimeters created from the moment we are conceived. From then we are an ongoing evolution of information that is affected by everything we come into physical and metaphysical contact with.

There is a set path that each human information crystal takes that we experience as birth, being a baby, childhood, adolescence, adulthood, maturity, old age, and death. Information does not die; it is an ongoing process of integration at different levels of consciousness. The levels before and after death are not accessible through normal human consciousness because it requires the limitation of information to function.

Everything a human information crystal encounters are a mirror of consciousness reflected through their own crystal. This is the reason that the foundation of human psychology is projection. Projection simply means that our subjective experience of another human reflects our own consciousness. Projection is the mechanism our information crystals use to learn and evolve consciousness over time. When we are young, we learn behavior from watching, feeling, and imitating those around us. This early set of information become the foundation for our own behavior. The goal of each human information crystal is simply to follow its path and evolve its awareness to the greatest extent possible.

Subjective Experience

All places, stories, books, media, religions, mythologies, and sciences are fictitious interpretations and reflections of consciousness as it expands into every direction it can to whatever degree possible.

Our subjective experience has layers of information that influence it, from our basic crystal configuration which we interpret through the patterns we see in astrology for example, to our early life conditioning, and then the information we gather through our life experience. It is predominantly our attitude towards ourselves and life that determines our subjective experience. Every human crystal will experience degrees of pleasure and pain because we are a binary program, evident by the polarities reflected in every aspect of our world.

We create our reality through our attitude to the information in our crystal. Our attitude will be predominantly negative, positive, or more neutral. A positive attitude is an expansive approach open to integrating new information. A negative attitude is a contracted approach that is closed to new information and replaces or discards information to a greater degree. A neutral attitude is an approach that integrates and replaces information in a more objective way.

The Spectrum of Experience

In order to expand our consciousness, and our ability to consciously affect our subjective human experience, we can look at the spectrum of experience and how our attitude affects it through the cognitive framework of the 9 chakras / energy centers that govern the range of frequencies we experience.

The Human Body Biofield and Chakras with Female Anatomy. View all Biofield and Chakra Images.

Balance and coherence in the body’s energy centers will be reflected by the degree of fulfillment of authentic potential. Authentic joy, peace, fulfillment, and success is an uniquely subjective experience.

Root: Survival, Stability, Safety

The root is our most primal connection to the physical experience of being in a body. It governs our sense of safety, security, survival, and awareness of our body. The programming we receive from conception to early childhood has the most significant impact on this sphere of information. Any kind of trauma, regardless of its degree, imprints the information that there is a lack of safety, security, and that the crystal’s survival is threatened. At the current phase of the world nearly all crystals are programmed negatively in this sphere, predominantly because of information received from the parents, caregivers, and the degree of fear frequencies permeating the environment. The result of this type of programming is that consciousness cannot fully penetrate this sphere. The result is a crystal that is unstable in its environment, and a personality that either disregards its own safety and longevity, or that is overly concerned with itself, its safety, survival, and sense of security because it unconsciously experiences the lack of coherence in this sphere.

Because the root is the first connection to the physical world, the consequence is that the amount and quality of energy and information that can move through this sphere is restricted which affects the transmission to every other sphere in the crystal. To balance this sphere we have to bring conscious awareness to our body, to feel its feedback, to move our conscious awareness with the body, every part of our body, when we sit, walk, relax, run, do exercise, develop a skill, dance, and any other form of movement so that we are literally expanding the degree that consciousness is permeating the crystal, and allow greater degrees of information to be transmitted. This practice will enhance our stability, sense of safety, and calibration with the body, which will make us more aware of feedback, and the intuitive intelligence present in our crystal. This practice can be enhanced with mental and verbal affirmations, or any other method that elicits a sense of stability, safety, calm, coherence, and well-being.

Human Body Chakras Energy Centre 2 Sacral

Sacral: Sensuality, Sexuality, Emotion

The sacral sphere embeds our physical experience of being in a body with emotional information to expand the degree awareness, and intensity of experience. The experience of pleasure and pain become meaningful because of the emotional information and the intensity it registers in our conscious awareness. Every emotion we can experience is a different frequency of information. Through our experiences we become conditioned to experience and expect certain frequencies more than others. Our attitude can also filter certain frequencies which either restricts or expands the range of frequencies we can feel, or the degree to which we can feel a certain frequency.

Emotions are fields of information that get stored in the crystal over time. Early emotional programming becomes magnetic information that will affect the type of experiences drawn to the crystal, repelled from the crystal, as well as the way information will be stored going forward. Emotions reflect our unconscious conditioning as well as our habits. The experience of an emotion is a highly subjective experience because it engages the entire crystal’s body of information.

A negative attitude can restrict the range of experience to a narrow band regardless of the information or potential emotional experience possible. The experience of anger is a good example of an emotion that can become the habitual response to any uncomfortable emotion, either a negative or positive one.

A positive attitude will integrate lower frequency emotions into higher frequencies. For example, appreciation can integrate nearly all other frequencies of emotions, which is why it is so powerful, and why gratitude practices and journals are powerful tools to develop emotional well-being. To improve emotional coherence and experience higher frequencies of emotions require conscious awareness, conscious practice, and an environment that is conducive to the frequencies. We can consciously examine our relationship to each frequency of emotion. Through this process we can clear, enhance, and bring coherence to our emotional body. This process can also pre-frame our awareness by expanding our subjective ability to experience and elicit different emotions. Emotional well-being can enhance all experiences, and our experience of our body, and body parts because it affects all other spheres, and all the other spheres influence our emotional experiences.

Human Body Chakras Energy Centre 3 Navel

The navel sphere is our metaphysical connection to consciousness and where we draw the greatest amount of creative energy and information from. We experience this informational predominantly as desire. Our conscious and unconscious desires govern behavior, decisions, and our ability to plan.

A desire is information that guides us to expand our crystal. The way we process a desire is highly susceptible to early conditioning and habits. Desires can therefore be either positive and life-affirming or negative and destructive depending on our attitude towards ourselves and life. When any other sphere is discordant it affects our desires, and how we interpret them, and the actions we take. When several spheres are discordant the subjective experience of a desire can be painful, which often leads to addictive behaviors as a mechanism to cope with the experience.

A positive attitude expands the ability to interpret the information received through this center. A positive attitude also expands the ways in which a desire can be nourished. Desires can be fulfilled through physical, emotional, mental, and metaphysical means. Desires can be released which makes their energy available for other uses. Desires can also consciously be transmuted into different desires. Mastering desire is the foundation of an expanded consciousness because it drives all behavior and information exchange with every other sphere.

Human Body Chakras Energy Centre 4 Solar Plexus

Solar Plexus: Willpower, Confidence, Self-Assurance

The solar plexus governs the information pertaining to the subjective self that the crystal thinks it is. This information is predominantly experienced as our willpower, confidence, and self-assurance. In a homogenized society or unhealthy family system this sphere is discordant, and it prevents authentic self-love, self-development, healthy individuation, independence, and the fulfillment of the crystal’s unique creative destiny.

A negative attitude reflects a personality that has been programmed to see itself as a victim stuck in a world incapable of achieving its goals and fulfilling its desires effectively. A positive attitude reflects a personality that had the opportunity to develop its willpower, sense of unique self, and set healthy boundaries which are required for the expansion of consciousness. When this sphere is discordant it has a significant effect on all spheres, particularly the higher spheres because they are an expansion of the crystals subjective experience, reality, and authentic expression which requires a coherent sense of self and willpower.

To bring greater coherence to this sphere requires the development of a skill, like drawing, writing, singing, dancing, or a craft, that automatically expands this sphere. When this sphere is engaged it automatically developments the will and the subjective experience of the self that is practicing the skill. The skill needs to be developed to the degree that it becomes a unique expression, which reflects a coherent sense of self, confidence, and self-assurance.

Human Body Chakras Energy Centre 5 Heart

Heart: Connection, Compassion, Universal Love

The heart governs the integration of information of all spheres. First it integrates all the information in the lower spheres that will govern the overall health and well-being of the crystal. This specifically includes the subjective experience of itself, all other crystals, and its physical environment. Secondly it expands its sphere and its coherence by channeling information to the higher spheres that govern balance, expression, mental capabilities, and the crystal’s connection to the rest of the manifested realms and worlds.

A negative attitude is a crystal with discord in the lower centers that prevent coherent integration of information. This attitude reflects a personality that can be defensive, arrogant, dismissive, anxious, aggressive, passive, depressive, or restless. A positive attitude shows some degree of coherence in the lower spheres of information. It will reflect a personality that is tolerant, understanding, forgiving, compassionate, open-minded, peaceful, calm, engaged with life, with more harmonious connections with other crystals and life.

To increase coherence in this sphere requires conscious awareness of the health of all the lower centers, the development of their coherence, and conscious harmonious integration of physical, emotional, and sense information.

Human Body Chakras Energy Centre 6 Thyroid

Thyroid: Transformation, Hormones, Metabolism

The thyroid sphere governs the expansion of the heart center and a greater capacity for information transmission through the entire crystal. This sphere of information is subjectively experienced as a desire for growth, transformation, expansion of consciousness, and achieving a greater sense of internal balance. This balance is achieved by integrating information extremes in the form of our traits, values, beliefs, habits, emotions, and desires. The extremes within the crystal are subjectively experienced as its masculinity and femininity.

A positive attitude is open to change, transformation, and uses feedback to achieve inner harmony and balance. A negative attitude would ignore, or discard feedback based on existing beliefs, habits, values, and desires. Creating increased coherence in this sphere is a very individual process because it lays the foundation for true authenticity, transparency, and our unique way of being. The elements that require transformation for increased balance and harmony requires the self-love developed through the heart center because it relies on the ability to accept all parts of ourselves and the feedback, as well as integrate the information in a coherent way that allows it to affect our behavior, beliefs, emotions, and desires.

Human Body Chakras Energy Centre 7 Throat

Throat: Communication, Expression, Authenticity

The throat center represents the avenue of expression for all the crystal’s information. Every center affects the throat, and the throat affects all centers. The expression of information is the way consciousness communicates with itself; therefore, it is a primary driver of the evolutionary expansion of consciousness. A coherent throat center transmits a higher refined frequency that has allot if power to influence its own crystal, other crystals, and the environment to a greater degree over a longer period. A discordant center may be able to have a powerful immediate impact, but its information will have decreased power over time and space because of the lack of harmony and integration that is possible.

Depending on the development of our own information crystal we will attract, repel, and integrate information from other sources in different ways. Some crystals are not capable of communicating with each other effectively because of the degree of difference in their crystals, so information will not be heard, seen, felt, or it will quickly be forgotten, or it will be misinterpreted. Science and religion are good examples of information that share a set of guidelines for humans to achieve greater expansion and harmony that is carried through time.

A negative attitude will communicate discordant information that is inconsistent. A positive attitude will communicate coherent information to various degrees that is more consistent, harmonious, beneficial, honest, and transparent. What a crystal body has access to will therefore determine what they express. What crystals express are always a reflection of the subjective information each have gathered and have access to. To increase coherence in this center requires balance in all centers, access to inner truth, and the self-assurance that leads to authentic expression.

Human Body Chakras Energy Centre 8 Eye

Eye: Vision, Imagination, Visualization

The eye center makes the information from other centers visible, which is expanded form of awareness, to the degree that the crystal is capable of processing the information. It is the primary way that an information crystal can access more information about itself, other crystals, and the environment. The sphere accesses information from the physical and metaphysical realms.

A crystal with an expansive positive attitude will be able to process greater degrees of information from a greater degree of sources. This attitude is subjectively experienced as an expanded perspective on any subject, experience, and situation. An expanded perspective leads to greater understanding, insights, intuitive awareness, creative results, and more efficient solutions.

A crystal with a contracted negative attitude is restricting the amount of information it has access to because it is not capable of processing it coherently. A good example of this is people who access information from the unconscious or metaphysical arenas while others consider it impossible or false information because their subjective experience is governing their opinion. What crystals communicate is a reflection if their own information warehouse.

To increase the coherence in this sphere takes practice and consistent efforts. Some crystals are designed to access more information in order to fulfill their creative potential and will therefore show greater achievements that rely on this sphere.

Human Body Chakras Energy Centre 9 Crown

Crown: Knowledge, Self-Realization, Spirituality

The crown governs intellectual, intuitive, and higher knowledge as it connects to the field of consciousness. Information in this sphere is subjectively experienced as thoughts, thinking, intuitive information, and knowledge without thought.

Coherence in this sphere is subjectively experienced as a calm mind with an expansive sense of time and space. Discord in this sphere is subjectively experienced as mental clutter, an excess of thought, too much thinking, confusion, fear, inner and outer conflict, stress, loneliness, anger, and frustration.

A negative attitude restricts the amount of information it can access to various degrees through various tactics. A positive attitude allows a greater amount if information to be accessed. A neutral attitude achieves balance through integration if knowledge into a coherent system that allows the crystal to navigate its unique path most effectively.

Intellectual knowledge is information crystals share with each other. Intuitive knowledge is information that consciousness shares with itself through the crystal. Higher knowledge is the information consciousness shares with crystals from an expanded range of sources. The degree of coherence in this sphere will determine the type of information the crystal has access to, to what degree, the degree of clarity, and consistency that it is capable of.

Greater degrees of coherence are subjectively experienced as greater sense of self, a non-self or as consciousness experiencing itself, and consciously communicating with itself. Balancing intellectual knowledge with intuition allows crystals to subjectively experience more harmony, simplicity, easier access to everything they need such as information, answers, physical resources, opportunities, and anything else that the crystal needs on its particular path to its authentic fulfillment.

Have you ever wondered why life is the way it is? Have you noticed the patterns and the cycles that keep repeating? Have you ever thought that something about life or yourself is fake? Did you ever wonder why we are obsessed with love? Do you wonder why we love games so much? Do you ever wonder why everything has a polarity? Do you wonder why fear seems illogical at time? Did you ever consider that life has no inherit meaning? Did you ever consider that life is a game of pretend and make beliefs?

The psychology of projection shows us that we are an actor to others, and play the movie director casting actors in roles in our own fantasy, created from childhood conditioning, fears, and desires. Read more about this in Life as a Game.

My experience taught me that we can learn to see the bigger picture, and play from a higher perspective that leads to emotional freedom, inner peace, authentic joy, and a deep sense of fulfillment.

Birth Design

When we are conceived there is an energetic signature as light combines. As we develop our being is conditioned by the energetic fields in the environment we are in. When we are born we come into a very specific set of energetic frequencies that form a part of our development as our physical bodies start to interact with the outside environment and relationships are formed.

Spectrum of Consciousness

Polarities form the basis of our existence, we can study the spectrum of light, and there is a set of parameters to all the things we can experience, feel, and see around us. We are each a full spectrum being, containing good and bad. Patterns exist everywhere and at all levels. Everything we do, think and say matters to the universe as it evolves through us. We have so much more power than we realize. We are at the edge of creation, creating.

Attachment Style

From birth we begin to respond to the relationship our primary caregiver has with themselves. We will mirror and reflect how they feel about themselves. This provides us with core traits, fears, and desires that create the setup for our subjective game.

This initial setup is referred to as Attachment Theory in psychology. There are videos and other research available on the internet. Keep in mind that emotional needs are absolutely vital for survival, as we learned in studies where babies actually started dying when only their physical needs were met.

Insecure < > Secure < > Insecure

There are various classifications but in general there is a secure group and an insecure group (currently estimated to be 50% each in countries like the USA). Those who can form secure close attachments had their emotional needs met most of the time, feel they can trust others, and believe relationships are important and valuable.

The insecure group have developed relationship coping mechanisms in order to survive because they did not have their emotional needs met, do no feel safe, and do not trust to various degrees. The two extremes (about 25% each) are avoidant / dismissive and anxious. The two extremes do not know how to care for their own emotional well being. They come together in families and are attracted to each other in romantic relationships where they form dysfunctional and co-dependent dynamics. There is also a disorganized / disoriented classification.

Understanding this spectrum changed my life. We must understand that there is also an evolutionary purpose to this dynamic. In one study where they put a mixed group together in a room and then had smoke come out of a computer each group responded differently: The dismissive / avoidant left the room first without saying anything – these are the individuals who often bring new ideas into the world and dedicate their lives to achievement or excellence. The anxious group left the room next, but they first told some of the others there was a problem – these are often individuals who dedicate their lives to service. The securely attached individuals were the last to leave the room, some just following the others.

Childhood Conditioning

Our childhood conditioning provides us with the rest of the data that we will use to create our lives with. In order to fit into our family and the current culture we develop the relationship strategies and character traits that are approved of by our family and community, and we suppress, disown, reject or deny the parts of ourselves that our family/ community/ culture find less acceptable. These parts that are suppressed, disowned, rejected or denied will become the parts we see in others and the world until they are owned, accepted and embraced. To understand how this works study the psychology of projection, learn more about Emotional Well Being, and you can also read Life as a Game.

As we incarnate into this world we go through cycles of development and growth. For the first 7 years we experience the world primarily through our physical bodies, we absorb and explore.

We are literally in Theta brain wave state, and being programmed, like a form of hypnosis.

The second 7 year cycle is about emotional development and the third cycle is about intellectual development. The cycles then repeat throughout our lives.

For example, feeling powerless in any situation will remain with us for resolution. Anger masks fear and is a consequence of feeling powerless. Any experience during a cycle that we do not understand or that we are not able to integrate or resolve will remain in our system for resolution until the next opportunity or cycle.

The Psychology of Projection

What is in our mind will determine what we create, like a hard drive. This is why childhood conditioning is our toolbox with which we create, for better or worse, unless we consciously grow and expand our consciousness.

Images we see are desires and fears projected outward, and this is what we think we see, what we think is real and what we base our behavior on.

Everything we see is a projection from our mind. There is no objective reality. Everything we see reflects our own consciousness because we filter all information through our consciousness. This is the foundation of the psychology of projection, one of the primary tools that psychologists and therapists use today.

Everything we see in another is something we either acknowledge or suppress, reject, deny, or disown in ourselves. Anything someone else sees in us reflects their consciousness, otherwise they would not see it. Both positive and negative.

Shadow Work

Shadow work is the conscious process to understand what we see in others, how it reflects us, and what we can learn from it. I believe all relationships are meant for this purpose. Everyone is here to teach us something about ourselves so that we can fully integrate our consciousness.

Every bit of unresolved emotional pattern that we reintegrate is like a piece of gold that we mine. All parts are equally valuable in terms of consciousness integration, good and bad, because they are not real in themselves, they are just the basis of perception that creates the game.

When we are attracted to someone this is a clear indicator that we can learn something with that person. Nothing is random. Attraction does not mean we are meant to be together or compatible. We are like molecules that fit together. Through greater awareness and shadow work we can truly liberate our relationships.

Opportunities for Resolution & Expansion

I believe that there is no inherit meaning in the world and that we use our free will to assign meaning. While we think up all kinds of reasons for the things we do, we are really nature evolving itself. We live our purpose every moment of every day because every thought, word and action is an act of creation that expands consciousness. In other words we are always living our purpose.

For expansion to occur the universe integrates and unifies.

Evolutionary biologists see the dynamics of species as they evolve and to them it is clear that humans are currently in our young adult years where we learn how to work together and form beneficial relationships with those around us because conflict is no longer efficient. This means that allot of what we are doing here is cleaning up, integrating, releasing and refining. We are really learning The Art of Self Love. The relationship with ourselves come first, that is really what it is about, the relationship we have with ourselves will be reflected back to us. When we get to know ourselves we develop appreciation for the skills and traits we have. A personalized I Ching profile and report can be a great starting point for self exploration.

Every single situation or experience is in truth for no other purpose than to purify our physical, emotional and mental bodies. Every experience contains a piece of gold. The people and situations in our life are not random, they cannot be because energy is magnetic, and what comes to us is for our evolutionary benefit. When we embrace this dynamic we no longer take everything personally and we can see life from a more holistic perspective.

Rules of the Game

There are principles, laws and rules to the game that are impersonal. These are laws that are fundamental to time/space physics and energy dynamics. Read The Rules of the Game for the whole list.

The path less traveled is the path to self fulfillment and self actualization.

There are two primary levels in the game, ego level and higher self level. All fears belong to the ego and are doorways to the higher self. The goal of the game is to clean our system so that we can host our higher self.

Nobody is a victim here, in any way. It is the victim mindset that we transcend when we learn to elevate ourselves above fearful reactions.

When we recognize that the source of all we have is life, that nothing really belongs to any of us it sets us free from worldly / material attachment which causes the experience of suffering.

Because perspectives and perceptions are learned we must learn to choose our beliefs and act accordingly.

Anything is possible when we believe wholeheartedly and act in harmony with life and our higher self.

Read The Rules of the Game for the whole list.

Call to Adventure

While many still live in denial of our higher spiritual nature, it is only a matter of time because it is what this whole game is designed for. Once our system is purified, we have expanded sufficiently to become the host to our greater energetic self, and this presence is unmistakable. Once we are no longer value the ego and the material world above our spiritual nature we enter into a different level of the game. Everything is designed to push us towards opportunities that will allow for the greatest expansion. There is allot of information about mythology, archetypes, and the hero’s journey because it is such an integral part of the game. We find these themes repeating in our movies, games, and fantasies because we are living them ourselves even if we are not aware of it.

A call to adventure is an experience or situation that requires us to open our mind, face the unknown, our limiting beliefs and fears. A call to adventure starts with a catalyst, it can be any emotionally charged situation, and end or a beginning, or when our ego has been wounded. For example: a death, a birth, a new relationship, end of a relationship, a vision, a visitor, financial or other loss, an accident, an illness, trauma, and global or regional events like a pandemic. The event charge must be big enough that it creates an opening for new awareness.

Accepting the call is another story because there is free will we always have a choice. Due to conditioning many of us avoid or fear pain and suffering without realizing that it is just as important as the good stuff. Suffering is really a gift for transformation and growth. Being depressed or unhappy is a sign that you are ready to move to a higher level but are refusing consciously or unconsciously. We will be presented with opportunities all the time because it is what we are here for.

Transformation

When we accept the call to expand, we enter a process of alchemy and transformation. This process is ongoing and unique for each of us. Through my own experience I have outlined the basic structure of the process. Read about the Process of Transformation.

The process of transformation is about moving from a frequency of fear to a frequency of love. The process includes a catalyst, a period of solitude, health and diet changes, a healthy environment, self-inquiry, expanding our perspective of life, releasing old thoughts, emotions and beliefs, learning self-love, growing in self awareness, regaining complete trust in life, inviting higher consciousness, experiencing inner peace, creating inner stillness, expanding our ability to experience gratitude and joy.

Personalized I Ching Profile & report

Take a look at the Personalized I Ching Profile and Reports that you can order on this website, it includes a large poster that you can print. The profile is based on astrology, and inspired by the I Ching, and systems based on the I Ching like Human Design, and the Gene Keys. The profile is a tool to get to know ourselves better. The I Ching is a wise book for contemplation based on binary (64 themes). Through this work we can expand our consciousness, integrate all aspects of ourselves and learn to trust life.

The Art of Self-Love

The Art of Self Love by Nathalie Strassburg

SHORTCUTS: Sel- Love First, The Languages of Self-Love, Unifying Love, The Spectrum of Self-Love

Self-Love First

Others reflect the love we give to ourselves, prove it to yourself. We can only care for another’s emotional well-being when we know how to care for our own. Honesty and acceptance allow us to open a secret door to our inner self. Intimacy is about seeing, feeling, hearing, understanding and knowing our authentic true self. Authentic Self love is the highest vibration frequency in this world. This means meeting our needs, and giving to ourselves what we would want someone else to give to us. Self sacrifice, and selfishness are the lower vibrations of self love.

Gifts of Self-Love

Cultivating self awareness. Thoughtful gifts and gestures from the heart, and with expressions of gratitude. Gifts that nourish our mind, body, soul and spirit. Recognizing all the gifts we receive by just being alive, recognizing that the source of all we have is life, nothing really belongs to any of us. This sets us free. Being grateful to life is receiving a gift, it fills us. Investing in ourselves. Making our thoughts our best friends. Recognizing our efforts and being open to feedback for growth.

Unifying Love

Mind

This is us as the Actor, and the highest manifestation is Peace. The mind learns love through the ability to judge and forgive.

Soul Connections – The Spectrum of Relationships

Soul Connections - The Spectrum of Relationships by Nathalie Strassburg

SHORTCUTS: Introduction, Integrity, Higher Purpose, The Spectrum of Relationships: Introduction, Family, Chance Encounters, Friendship, Romance, Karmic Relationships, Soul Mates, Sacred Partnerships & Twin Flames, Holy Relationships, Animal Companions, Spirit Relationships, Spiritual Guide Relationships, and Higher Love


We are like molecules that fit into each other. From a passing glimpse, a friendship to a romantic tale, they are the ones that we are magnetically attracted to. Attraction is something completely impersonal for the purpose of learning and evolution because everyone we come into contact with is seen through the filters of our own projections and mental filters.

If we can look at attraction as something designed for learning, to show us our shadow and to trigger unresolved emotional issues for resolution, then we can liberate our relationships.

Integrity

Emotional immaturity is probably the greatest barrier to harmonious relationships. Unresolved issues that present themselves as emotional reactions break down the trust in a relationship because they are fear based.

In the earlier stages of new relationships the reality is often obscured, especially when we have conditioned relationship strategies based on insecure attachment. We mirror each other both consciously and unconsciously, in order for things to flow, and then as the relationship progresses we allow more of ourselves to be seen because we feel safe, and things we can’t hide indefinitely start to show, and so incompatibilities can take anything from a few weeks, months or years to show. We think people change but we just become more ourselves in relationships over time.

Shadow work and healthy boundaries are essential for self-development and harmonious relationships.

Integrity is the foundation of any authentic or emotionally mature relationship. A mature relationship respects the unique individual, and is found on trust and mutual understanding.

Higher Purpose

From a higher perspective we meet exactly the right people at the right time based on our current configuration in order to develop our spiritual self which requires awareness, release, and forgiveness.

The moment we start casting people into roles in our lives we get up to all kinds of interesting stories. We lose ourselves in make-believe-I-am-a-some-body, sometimes with hundreds of roles.

Ultimately psychological projection shows that we are an actor to others, and play the movie director casting actors in roles in our own fantasy, created from childhood conditioning, fears, and desires. Read more about it in Life as a game.

As a game of spiritual development with the goal of self-realization, self-fulfillment, and self-love nothing is ever random and there are people with whom we have bonds that go beyond any conscious human understanding.

The Spectrum of Relationships

The Spectrum of Relationships is a framework to understand the nature and purpose of different relationships in our lives. Our subjective human experience is an evolution of awareness so we are often not aware of our own situation or potential without seeing a larger picture. We often do now allow relationships to serve their purpose because we become entangled in beliefs and values we adopted from our society and culture. Fear prevents many people from moving on to better and more harmonious relationships because they are not aware that this is a primary feature of the design of the entire system of life.

When we trust life, focus on getting our lessons in every situation, listen to the feedback we get from life, master ourselves, master our desires, and take the necessary actions to achieve self-realization through our higher purpose and self-fulfillment we will allow our lives to unfold and continuously move into higher and higher frequencies.

Family

The family that we are born into is not random at all. In most cases it will bring opposites come together in order to allow for the greatest expansion. A parent who cannot sit still will inevitably have a child who embodies stillness, or the father who is a major financial achiever will inevitable have a child who cannot or will not be a similar achiever.

Our families are probably the least compatible individuals we spend a significant amount of time with. Conditioning in this way allows for the greatest amount of diversity and potential. It is very important that children are allowed to individuate. It requires some level of emotional maturity in the parents otherwise we end up with enmeshment, co-dependency and other unhealthy dynamics. Many people never become who they really are because they fear the loss of connection from their family. Many of us do not mature if our family are not emotionally mature, and maturing requires us to change the relationship we have with our family, sometimes we have to let go. The world needs people who see things differently, and are willing to do things differently.

Chance Encounters

Just being in the same space as someone else affects us in ways that we cannot always understand with our conscious mind because of projection and the exchange of energy that takes place. Just one meeting with someone that embodies a frequency we have never encountered will noticeably affect us. We can meet someone at an art exhibition or a gas station that deeply affects us. We just never forget some people because they represent some part in ourselves. Once we can see the world from a metaphysical perspective and understand the psychology of projection it is easier to grasp these encounters and their purpose in our lives.

Friendship

Friendships have the potential to be the best type of relationship because they can be free from compulsions. Friendships can last from a few hours, days, or a lifetime. When a relationship is free from compulsion it has the greatest opportunity to teach us because we can be honest with each other, learn the most about ourselves, others, and the world. In a friendship we have the greatest amount of freedom to change and evolve as we focus on our own development.

Romance

Our deep desire for spiritual reunion (energetic reunion with our source) is the foundation of attraction. When the attraction is strong enough it can be an incredibly powerful force. Love is the foundation of this universe and we prove it to ourselves all the time. There are many different types of romantic relationships, from fantasy relationships, casual encounters, short term hookups, a few months, and then longer term relationships.

Romantic relationships are connections that focus predominately in the lower 4 chakras / energy centers (root, sacral, navel, and solar plexus). The only relationships that can be harmonious and long lasting include mutual growth and development towards self actualization which requires the relationship to move into the hear chakra and through to the higher chakras / energy centers (heart, thyroid, throat, eye, and crown), which makes it a soul mate or sacred partnership. The reason these higher chakra relationships are still in the minority is because romantic love is primarily associated with fulfilling basic needs like safety, stability, security, emotional experiences, desires, sexual and physically intimate experiences, ego gratification, self-esteem, and other pleasure based experiences. In general these are superficial ego based romances that are for reproduction. These can be short or long, troubled, intense and commonly involve children.

Most romantic relationships are individuals who come together because their trauma bonds are compatible. These are relationships that come to help us heal unresolved emotional trauma. They are not healthy relationships, often inauthentic (even unconsciously), codependent, and often have a similar dynamic we had with our parents, especially if we have a difficult relationship with one parent. Once we become aware of how our past affects our current relationships, do the work to heal our emotional body, and learn to distinguish between healthy and unhealthy love, then our relationship template is updated and we will attract healthier partners into our lives. Sometimes some people come into our lives simply so that we can say no, I have learned the lesson.

Karmic Relationships

Karmic Relationships are relationships between individuals that are for the purpose of manifesting karma and situations to resolve emotional trauma. This means that these relationships cannot and will not evolve past the 4 lower charkas / energy centers (root, sacral, navel, and solar plexus). Trauma bonds, as mentioned above, will be present along with incompatibility and general disharmony. What sets a karmic relationship apart from other relationship types is that there will be a lack of unconditional love, and they can be extremely difficult to detach from because most people have allot of unresolved emotional trauma from just living in the current world.

These relationships are energetic bonds created with our root, sacral, navel, and solar plexus energy centers / chakras which makes them very intense (or later very boring), compulsive, and we often loose our unique identity in these relationships because their presence requires a lack of development in the solar plexus center which governs our will, self-confidence, and self-assurance.

Trauma bonds are very deep energetic blocks in our energy field, and in order to free ourselves from these bonds we have to integrate allot of unconscious information. Transcending these relationships requires us to do emotional body work, some form of therapy, gain deeper psychological self-awareness, and become self-empowered. This is why so many people get stuck in these relationships.

Think of individuals who are in unhealthy relationships with their parents, or a couple who cannot seem to let go of their passionate but troubled relationship no matter what they do. Karmic relationships can often be associated with violence and aggression because they are triggering deep immature emotional energy. The Johnny Depp and Amber Heard relationship is a good example of a Karmic relationship.

It can be dangerous to continue in these relationships once the universe has presented opportunities for the individuals to move apart. Remaining in these relationships after the emotional triggers have occurred can affect everything in our lives, and everything we attempt to create. Once these relationships come to an end it is vital for the individuals to spend enough time on their own in order to process the lessons they learned, otherwise they will repeat the same lessons in the next relationship they get involved in.

Soul Mates

Soul Mates are those soul connections that starts to open our hearts. They are connections that form in the lower 4 chakras / energy centers and into the heart center. They are meaningful bonds where a deeper authentic connection is possible when there is complementary compatibility and maturity.

In Soul Mate connections we we get to know our authentic self, our conditioning, and we learn what it means to experience greater degrees of unconditional love. They can still be a positive or negative experience depending on our attachment style, current configuration, relationship template, and level of awareness.

These experiences are powerful drivers for the Process of transformation and shadow work because they teach us what we really want, and need in order to be self-empowered individuals. We are always provided with what we need to expand our consciousness, realize inner truth, and achieve self-fulfillment. Authentic Self-love is the highest vibration frequency in this world.

If both individuals are mature enough we learn how to grow in love and share life experiences with another through interdependence, healthy boundaries, and self-fulfillment.

Sacred Partnerships & Twin Flames

A true Sacred Partnership or Twin Flame connection is an uplifting, loving, compassionate, mature, and lasting relationship with a companion that is truly compatible on a physical, mental, emotional and spiritual level. These Sacred Partnerships are beyond romance even if they may contain it, and they are identified by the devotion of two individuals to their individual higher purpose and self actualization.

These connections have the possibility of connecting through all 9 chakras / energy centers: root, sacral, navel, solar plexus, heart, thyroid, throat, eye, and crown. This type of relationship is only possible when the lower 4 chakras / energy centers are coherent and the emotional body has been healed to a great extent. These relationships are recognized by the unconditional love that is present because these individuals have developed self-love and unconditional love within themselves. Because the heart connection is present it allows the individuals to continue to do their personal transformation for self-actualization in a safe space. In these relationships nothing is hidden and we are continuously expressing our authentic self and our needs. These relationships are for individuals who are consciously realizing inner truth, developing their intuition and higher abilities, self-actualizing, and growing in their spiritual connection to all of life.

The easiest way to distinguish these relationships is that they are harmonious 95% of the time and they will not be focused on issues relating to safety, security, emotions, lower frequency desires, sexuality, and self-assurance because these individuals have already worked through the issues relating to the lower chakras and their lives, and lifestyle will be the evidence for it.

Holy Relationships

In some rare cases the universe will bring together two individuals who are each other’s extreme opposite, black and white, to such a degree that they are not compatible for any other relationship but a holy one intended for spiritual liberation. A holy relationship serves the collective by bringing two individuals together for energy exchange and awareness that is completely impersonal. These two individuals will have a magnetic attraction, they will exhibit polar opposite traits, habits, values, beliefs, and they will dislike almost everything about each other. This energetic dynamic may be obscured initially through projection or it may not, but time will reveal the purpose of the relationship.

The defining factor for a holy relationships is that the two individuals can develop a spiritual bond that transcends both friendship and romance, and that can last for the rest of their lives. It is important not to confuse a holy relationship with a romantic or Sacred Partnership which are relationships based on compatibility and complementary traits, habits, values, and beliefs.

Animal Companions

Animal Companions have always played a significant role in human relationships and they still do. For many people, specifically those with insecure attachment, it is vital for their survival because animals, and especially dogs, channel source energy without much resistance. This means that the animal becomes a source of unconditional love and acceptance. Animals can play a similar mirroring role that humans do where they can teach us about our conditioning, and that is why we often see some similarities between the human and their animal companion. The relationship also creates a safe space where we can develop certain skills required for holistic development and personal growth such as the capacity for intimacy, trust, and unconditional love. Animal companions can also help humans regulate their nervous system, be mindful, and balance their hormones. One of the greatest gifts of an animal companion is the ability to do inner child work together.

Spirit Relationships

Spiritual relationships play different roles in various cultures and can vary greatly due to the individual subjective experience of life, conditioning, and the innate abilities each human vehicle has and can develop. The most significant aspect of this relationship is that it has the ability to create a secure relationship for an individual and allow them to develop trust, intuitive abilities, understanding, insight and unconditional love. This relationship can be with an imaginary friend, an ancient spiritual master, a god, gods, spiritual guides, ancestors, thought forms, and other energetic beings that inhabit different dimensions including the collective unconscious. With these relationships the purpose and benefit is more important than the type. These relationships can be both positive and negative, negative experiences are learning opportunities, usually to develop strength and awareness.

All things supernatural, energy forms, thought forms, aliens, spirits, and other worldly beings are all different forms of energy that exist in different dimensions. We can experience and see them depending on our own level of awareness. They are as we are, and subject to polarity to various degrees because we are all part of the manifested worlds. Consciousness is the source of all forms, beyond all of it, and beyond the polarity of good, and bad.

Spiritual Guide Relationships

Those who have expanded their consciousness and achieved coherence in all 9 energy centers (root, sacral, navel, solar plexus, heart, thyroid, throat, eye, and crown) are a special gift to the world and those individuals who come into contact with them. Ultimately they make us aware of our own potential and inspire us to expand our own consciousness. Our experience of a Spiritual Guide varies depending on our own current level of awareness.

Higher Love

As we dissolve the unnecessary through the Process of transformation we open our vehicle to greater love frequencies, and embody our higher self or soul consciousness. Through the process of self-love, self-knowing, self-realization, self-actualization, and self-fulfillment we no longer see ourselves as the character or roles. When we are no longer attached to our personality we can see and experience life, and love, from a metaphysical perspective. In this state of unconditional love, love it is all around us, felt in everything and we see the beauty and truth in everyone.

A Different Kind of Love

A different kind of love - by Nathalie Strassburg

True intimacy is taking another as yourself, loving them as yourself. That is why self-love comes first. Only when we love ourselves unconditionally do we become capable of loving another in a clean aura of love.

Love is corrupted by fear. In a world where fear dominates, we are unable to discern between love and fear unless we raise our frequency into one of love. Through the frequency of fear love becomes guilt. When guilt is the foundation of any relationship it cannot be harmonious. Guilt creates a great deal of stress and leads to compulsive actions taken out of fear, in an attempt to cover up the underlying feelings of fear and guilt. Fear is the foundation of any co-dependent relationship.

When we do not love ourselves, we use people to project unresolved emotional patterns on. It cannot be otherwise because we are energy. Energy that continuously seeks balance and equilibrium. True intimacy sees no separation between you and the other. We can understand that everything is a relationship.

True intimacy can only exist in a field of love which is created through integrity and honesty.

Each of us are powerful creative beings, which means that just one party in a relationship has to create through a frequency of fear in order to affect the entire relationship. Every single thought, word and action is either taken from a frequency of love or fear, every creative act has a charge, which means nothing is neutral. That is why honesty is an integral part of unconditional love and acceptance.

Like attracts like, fear can bring people together just as much as love can. In so many cases it is fear of intimacy, fear of rejection and fear of lack that bring people together so that we can see in each other what we fear the most. It is only when we believe in a lack of love and see it as a scare commodity that it becomes an exclusive thing, that what you give to one person takes away from another and similar types of limiting beliefs.

Fear is not something of itself, even though we can witness its effects, fundamentally it is just a lack of love, it is a perception of lack of love. Fear is a belief in what is false. It is fear and love that repel each other. That is why when we do shadow work and clean our system, our relationships change, sometimes dramatically. These fears show us the limiting beliefs that need to be resolved to move our frequency higher.

The only thing we ever really have to accept and understand is that we can only change ourselves. The deep learning is that we cannot take responsibility for anyone else. Free will is the power we each wield. Nobody is a victim, ever. Every decision is a choice between love and fear. 

Fear creates confusion and self-doubt because it does not contain the ingredients for love. We are continuously receiving feedback from the universe through our feelings. When we learn to embrace and understand our feelings, we can use them to guide us to love.   

Our evolution is a revolution of relationships. It is a revolution of love. A revolution that starts within. We transform our inner relationship with love, which is what affects our world and society.

Intimacy and pure love are the foundation of all existence because love is the frequency that creates eternally without interference. Wholesome love it is the most natural thing for us to do, but as we travel through cycles, we will inevitably find ourselves at a point where we build entire cultures out of fear and structure societies in resistance to love.

The love I am talking about is a higher love. The ability to love people deeply. To love life deeply.

The ability to see the best in everyone and fall in love with that spirit is a love that is free of quilt and shame. It is a love that gives. This is a universal love that is based on mutual respect, interdependency, transparency, and higher purpose. It is a mature love and requires emotional maturity of all parties involved, that is why it is part of our evolution.    

Every decision, that means every thought, word or action is a choice between fear and love. When you live this truth, it changes everything. This is what our intuition is for, once we learn to trust it then we always know the right way to go in every situation. The right way being the one that leads to greater love and joy. We are made for joy. That is why our pleasures can be so irresistible. There is an important distinction between following sense pleasures and following our unconditional joy. They lead in opposite directions. The one believes itself a body and the other something greater with potential.

The path of integrity is a conscious choice that is made when the consciousness is ready. The first step is always that we start to care for ourselves better. We start by changing the relationship we have on the inside, one decision at a time.  

We continuously draw the right people into our lives at the right time, magnetically we will draw a match that will push us higher to learn. When you live it consciously it can really feel like a game. Where we want to go must be a conscious choice to love, every time. It gets easier over time.

We can dedicate our life to a higher purpose by allowing each situation to work for your benefit. This is the fastest path to raising our frequency, feeling lighter, loved and being filled with joy.

People will reflect the love we have for ourselves. This is what makes it so magical.

When we can see others as our energetic brothers and sisters we can love others for who they are because they exist in relationship to ourselves. Everyone can teach us about ourselves. Individually we are unique expressions of source energy. Together we are one expression of source consciousness. We are like the rays of the sun, we can never be apart. This is the truth of who we are.
