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.

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.

Lower and Higher Frequencies of Desires

Human evolution is the process of expanding our consciousness to higher frequencies. Higher frequencies are the realms of expanded forms of fulfillment. Mastering our desires are the central theme on the path of transformation, self-awareness, self-development, self-realization, and self-fulfillment.

Desires can simply be understood as the desire for a source of energy. Desire is the mechanic that creates the world, makes it possible to have an experience, and drives all behavior. At the lower frequencies these are sense inputs or stimulation: mental stimulation in the form of thoughts, and physical stimulation through what we see, hear, smell, feel, and taste. Most people have been conditioned to live for the purpose of fulfilling these desires, seek pleasure, and in the process to avoid pain or displeasure. At the higher frequencies the source of energy is not tangible. Most people are completely unaware of higher frequency desires and their fulfillment because they are beyond mental and physical stimulation. Some higher frequency energy may register as sparkling currents of blissful tingling through the body, or inspirational information that is translated through the brain.

When we simplify the issues fueling unrest and discord in the world they all come down to lower frequency desires. Those who live in a perception that they do not have enough are restless because they cannot fulfill the pleasures they think they want. Those who live in a perception that they have somewhat enough are restless because they want more, or they are fearful of having less. Those who live in a perception that they have allot are restless because they want to sustain or increase their ability to fulfill these desires. The changes that are occurring in the world are for the purpose of human evolution and will directly target each individuals relationship to their desires.

Human Evolution and Higher Frequencies

Consciousness is expanding and evolving through life on earth, and through the human vehicle. All sense inputs feed into the mind, including thought as a sense input. For this reason the body is a learning device for the mind. A body that is embodying coherent frequencies is capable of functioning more efficiently and intuitively. Studies are showing that negative emotions create disorder in the body and positive feelings such as gratitude create increased order resulting in improved digestive, cardiovascular, immune, hormonal, cognitive, and other functions like intuition.

The path to living in a sustainable coherent state requires the simplification, release, and transmutation of lower frequency desires. The Process of Transformation is essentially a process of deconditioning the mind and its reliance on lower frequency desires as a source of energy. The process of transformation is unique for each of us because we are in a dynamic relationship with the universe, and the process is governed by the area for the greatest possibility for growth and expansion as we evolve. This process includes alone time, a complete diet change, social changes, environmental or location changes, intellectual changes, metaphysical or spiritual changes.

Trusting life is the key to living in harmony with life and fulfilling our individual destiny which leads to our self-fulfillment and self-actualization. Our self-actualization is the degree to which we fulfill our greatest potential as a human being.

Trusting life means we have expanded our consciousness beyond the identification with our ego or personality. This process of identification is the primary form of conditioning we experience to fit into the homogenized society, and dis-identification happens through a gradual process of deconditioning. For some this may mean 99% identification, and for another 10%. The degree to which we can experience life without identification determines our degree of freedom. Trusting life means we embrace whatever life is offering us because we know that it is leading us in the direction of our expansion. Trusting life means we do not take our life experience so personal, and we do not take our desires and sense inputs personal. Instead we endeavor to expand our understanding of ourselves through questioning ourselves, our life, habits, relationships, and beliefs.

When we can see Life as a Game and approach every experience with an open mind, like a quest, we increase our ability to discern the reason for particular situations, dynamics, and relationships in our life, and how to use them to continue on our path of self-empowerment and self-fulfillment. The path to our self-fulfillment is an intuitive process, which is governed by life’s intelligence, which means that our ability to follow our path depends on the quality and health of our overall consciousness.

Mastering Desires, Resting the Mind and Senses

Simplifying desires lead to greater harmony.

There are global trends that are the consequence of our movement in the direction of our evolution, becoming more sustainable, and mastering our desires. These trends include meditation, yoga and similar practices, self-help, spirituality, mindfulness, fasting and intermittent fasting, self-sufficiency, economic and social unrest, war and conflict, the pandemic, mental health issues, rates of disease and chronic illness, drug abuse, environmental changes, technological advancements, and the depletion of natural resources.

There are only three ways to resolve a desire: 1. Fulfilling it, 2. Releasing it, and 3. Transmuting it. Fulfilling desires create habits and an ongoing cycle of fulfillment because we live in time where everything is impermanent. Releasing desires simplifies our life, reduces stress, increases the number of healthy years of life, and longevity. Transmuting desires into the fulfillment of higher frequency desires expands our consciousness and our ability to experience deeper fulfillment, peace and inner harmony.

The Spectrum of Desires

The best way to understand the spectrum of our desires is through the body’s energy system. Understanding the spectrum of desires gives us the awareness and cognitive framework for going about fulfilling, releasing and transmuting desires that allow for the expansion of our consciousness.

Root: Survival, Stability, Safety

The body is designed to survive in our environment. The desire to survive is the driving force behind the evolution of the earlier hominids as well as homo sapiens, and that which will replace modern man. The desire for survival is the desire for stability, safety, and the ability to predict events in our environment. Fundamentally this instinctive self desires a degree of certainty.

Fulfilling the desire for survival, stability and safety is the easiest way to resolve these desires, and they are a part of the basic quests and challenges of being human. For some this is actually a primary feature of their life journey. When we are not able to fulfill these desires it can lead to self-destruction, which are forms of release, or we can transmute them. Even individuals who are meeting these needs may live in fear of their lives such as those who live in societies with high levels of crime or conflict.

Regardless of the situation these desires are transmuted by embracing the concept of uncertainty. To embrace the concept of uncertainty we have to expand our idea of what it means to be alive, what it means to be safe, what it means to feel certain about tomorrow, and our ability to survive another day. When we open our minds to look at an idea through new perspectives we are expanding our awareness and understanding which leads to changes in our consciousness. Along with this practice of self-inquiry there are three additional methods to embody a sense of safety: 1. we can practice stillness, a calm body calms the mind, our senses and our desires 2. we can practice affirmations that are in alignment with an expanded perspective which can make us feel safe in the midst of uncertainty and 3. we can practice body movements such as Chi Gong or exercise like walking that make us feel safe in our body. The ideas that will allow each person to expand their consciousness and transmute these desires will vary greatly depending on values, culture, religion, childhood conditioning, and life experience. Alan Watts wrote a great book called The Wisdom of Insecurity: A Message for an Age of Anxiety.

Human Body Chakras Energy Centre 2 Sacral

Sacral: Sensuality, Sexuality, Emotion

The desire to feel emotions and arousal are still dominating most of civilization because they are so powerful. When we enter this world our systems are predominately processing the world through emotional input and most people try to repeatedly fulfill these desires by entering into various types of relationships. Even those who are advanced in their awareness and spiritual practice may temporarily become overwhelmed by their emotions or arousal if they identify with the feelings. For this reason sexual transmutation is one of the most powerful practices available to man, especially in a world where access for fulfillment has become cheap and easily accessible.

Releasing sexual desire and emotions are vital in the process of expanding our perspective and growing in emotional freedom. Many people believe themselves to be at the mercy of the emotions and feelings of arousal that pass through their system. This is a fundamental aspect that changes as we expand our consciousness. Emotions and feelings become important sources of information that help us make decisions when we do not identify ourselves as the one who is experiencing the emotions, but can recognize that they are fields of information.

Emotions are stored in electromagnetic fields in our energy system called a biofield. Emotional trauma from our earliest experiences are emotional blocks that are stagnant energy in our biofield. Most of our life is predominately a collection of experiences and relationships that bring opportunities for clearing these emotional blocks and stagnant energy. Once we release emotional blocks our system becomes free from their interference and the life experiences they draw to us.

Emotions influence the activity in the autonomic nervous system which interacts with our digestive, cardiovascular, immune, hormonal and many other bodily systems. Each emotion we can experience can be measured in Hz (Hertz) on a range of frequencies from low contracted emotions like Shame at 20 Hz, to higher expanded emotions like Trust at 250 Hz and Gratitude at 540 Hz.

To transmute emotional and sexual energy we can study a range of fields that cover these subjects. Any expanded perspective on any of these subjects will benefit the expansion of our consciousness. When we consciously choose to use our sexual desire for higher purposes the results can be profound because these currents have massive power to fuel every other energy center. To do this we simply redirect our focus and energy to these other areas through our will, actions, and thoughts. Scott Jeffrey has a great free guide available online: A Complete Guide to the Secrets of Sexual Transmutation.

Human Body Chakras Energy Centre 3 Navel

Our navel center is our metaphysical connection to the source of life where we draw our power to manifest and create in this world. At the foundation of this energy center is the ability to convert food to create our body on an ongoing basis. This sphere of governs most of our compulsive decisions and actions such as eating and thinking. When we are engaged in higher frequencies we often loose our appetite, for example when we are in love or engaged in an intellectual or creative activity (flow).

Fulfilling these desires can be achieved through activities like eating, creating, thinking etc. or they can be relinquished through fasting, intermittent fasting, meditation, and yoga. Fasting has become more widespread and it will continue to as we expand our consciousness because a part of the process of our evolving bodies is that we will rely less on food. Fasting has enormous health and physiological benefits, and as our body adapts we require less food, as many individuals will testify to. The majority of the energy will be used to be creative. Each individual has a creative destiny.

Human Body Chakras Energy Centre 4 Solar Plexus

Solar Plexus: Willpower, Confidence, Self-Assurance

This energy center governs the desires relating to our sense of self and the use of our will. The development of our willpower is the key component to developing expanded self-awareness, creating healthy boundaries, becoming our own best friend, liberator, and finding authentic self-fulfillment. Lack of development in this center is one of the main factors that contribute to unhealthy relationship dynamics, with ourselves, others, governments, and organizations.

There are many desires that drive our instinctive behaviors, but we are able to modify these fixed patterns of action by consciously recognizing the point of activation and choosing to either release or transmute the desire. It is our ability to use our will that allows for the process of deconditioning, and the modification of instinctive habits and traits.

Habits are formed through the fulfillment or lack of fulfillment of desires, and modified through the application of our will. While our innate ability to use our will empowers us, it is the development our ability to affirm choices that leads to self-mastery. Affirmations drive our behavior, consciously, and unconsciously. Every thought, word, and action can be seen as an affirmation because it is energy that has power. Verbal and mental affirmations are powerful forms of transmutation, along with physical exercise and creative activities like writing, drawing, playing music etc.

Developing empowering thoughts, and thereby empowering actions are the primary ways that we reclaim our power to create that which we want, and fulfill our desire for confidence, and self-assurance.

Human Body Chakras Energy Centre 5 Heart

Heart: Connection, Compassion, Universal Love

Our desire for love and connection can be entangled with our desires to feel emotion, arousal, and the fulfillment of needs governed by our intellect and conditioning. Desires for emotions and arousal, that we commonly associate with experiencing love, are actually self-serving desires, desires to experience pleasure, to make us feel better, and a form of ego gratification. The popular 5 Love Languages explains how love is currently viewed: Words of affirmation, quality time, receiving gifts, acts of service, and physical touch. We can love ice cream or another person because it brings us pleasure, or we can love something regardless of whether it makes us feel good.

True love is actually unconditional acceptance, understanding, and deep appreciation for another or a part of ourselves. Self-love is the process of learning to accept and love all parts of ourselves. These parts can be parts of our body, parts of our personality, or metaphysical aspects that we consider a part of our self, and ultimately, as we realize through the expansion of our consciousness, all of life.

The primary way to fulfill, release, and transmute desires for love is through compassion. Through contemplation and self-inquiry we can expand our concept of love. We often associate love with relationships and soul connections, but love is a spectrum that underlies our connection to all of life. We understand this better once we realize that love is not enough to make an intimate relationship work, that a harmonious intimate relationship is actually about compatibility.

Authentic self-love is the highest frequency in this world because it is about being enchanted with ourselves without attachment, a deep self-knowing, and appreciating every part of ourselves, which allows us to see the holistic nature of reality. Through the process of self-love, self-knowing, self-realization, self-actualization, and self-fulfillment we no longer see ourselves just 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.

Human Body Chakras Energy Centre 6 Thyroid

Thyroid: Transformation, Hormones, Metabolism

The thyroid center governs our desires for transformation, expansion, and integration, including individual and collective energy associated with trauma and karma. These desires can best be understood through our understanding and relationship to the idea of suffering. Suffering is the tension life uses to evolve our us and our consciousness. It is only when we take suffering for ourselves or another personal that it becomes a problem for the mind. The truth is that suffering is just feedback to let us know which direction to move to. Allot of stagnant energy is kept in that state through our limited perspectives.

The way we feel about ourselves, the world, and others is reflected in our body chemistry through the hormones that we are producing. Hormones are chemical messengers within the body that travel through the bloodstream to tissues, and organs. Body chemistry is a two way street because we can affect it through our behavior, and it also affects our behavior. Hormone production is the result of the combination of the conditioning we receive, our lifestyle, the food we eat, exercise habits, our thoughts, and the emotions we experience.

Female and male bodies produce mostly the same hormones, but to different degrees at different times, and ages. Each person also has a unique hormone profile based on various influences that start at conception. The goal is that as we integrate our masculine and feminine traits we balance and optimize our hormones. For optimal health, well-being, and chemistry a female body requires about 10 times as much estrogen (and progesterone) as a male body, and a male body at least 10 times as much testosterone as a female body. A majority of the current issues in society, relationships, and individuals can be seen in hormone imbalances, for example depression is caused by high testosterone in females, and high estrogen in males. Excessive psychological, emotional or physical stress lowers estrogen in females, and lowers testosterone in males. All of the symptoms associated with a lack of health and well-being is feedback designed to guide us to become better versions of ourselves. I believe we can even include the gender issues in society in part as a symptom of the desire for transformation.

We can fulfill the desire for transformation by embracing the tension and using it to fuel our determination to become self-fulfilled and self-empowered individuals. This means opening our mind to new possibilities, integrating our masculine and feminine traits, and embracing whatever system, process or modality we are intuitively guided to for our personal development. Releasing or transmuting the desire for transformation is the path of stillness, meditation, simplicity, and abstinence which is in itself a form of transformation. Life is designed to find ways to bring balance and equilibrium in any environment or circumstance.

Human Body Chakras Energy Centre 7 Throat

Throat: Communication, Expression, Authenticity

The throat center governs our desire to express ourselves, and listen to others. The quality and frequency that we communicate is determined by the coherence in all our energy centers, particularly the heart center. Two individuals can communicate the same message but the way it is understood, the way it feels to others, and the meaning others take from it can be dramatically different because of the influence that our system has on our communication and what we can hear. What we communicate can either be a replay of something we hear or read, our conditioning, or it can be our authentic expression. Expressing our authentic truth is the higher purpose of the throat center and expressing our authentic inner truth is a vital part of self-fulfillment. Discord in this energy center comes from limiting beliefs, low self-esteem, unresolved emotional trauma, and limited development in any of the other energy centers.

Fulfilling the desire to express ourselves, or listen to others, allows life to communicate with itself and thus facilitates the process of evolution and expanding our consciousness. Releasing and transmuting the desire for communication and expression is important in many circumstances, for both personal development, self-reflection, developing willpower, contemplation, self-inquiry, mindfulness, and transformation. Silent retreats or taking a periodic vow of silence has many benefits. Spending time in solitude, taking a break from media, people, and other sense inputs can have a phenomenal impact on the expansion of our consciousness because most of us are saturated with information, and emptying ourselves allows our consciousness generate new ideas. Transmuting the desire for verbal communication and expression can take various forms such as writing, art, dancing, yoga and meditation.

Human Body Chakras Energy Centre 8 Eye

Eye: Vision, Imagination, Visualization

Our eye center governs our desires for various forms of visual stimulation. External sources of visual stimuli are extremely crude and unrefined compared to inner vision. Societies are filled with sources of visual stimulation, and media companies are created to fuel and fulfill these desires. It is only through the release or transmutation of the desire for external stimulation that we can expand our capacity to access and develop our inner vision and imagination.

Releasing the desire for external stimuli includes limiting social interaction, media, games, news, movies, and online content. One of the benefits of limiting visual stimuli is that our dreams are not polluted by the external sources. This allows us to gain the full benefit of our dreams which can be wonderful experiences, guides, and reflections of our personal development. As we consistently use our dreams we learn to understand the symbolic language of our dreams as a mirror of ourselves, and we discover the synchronicity with our waking life. To learn more about dreams read Kari Hohne’s What’s in a Dream.

The practice of Active Imagination developed by Carl Jung is an example of transmutation. Active Imagination is a meditation technique where we allow the contents of our unconscious to surface and translate into images, stories, and people or personalities. The process serves as a bridge between the conscious mind and the unconscious for the purpose of growing in self-awareness and expanding our consciousness.

Astral projection, imagination exercises, and visualization practices are other forms of transmutation that require us to become still and develop our ability to concentrate.

Human Body Chakras Energy Centre 9 Crown

Crown: Knowledge, Self-Realization, Spirituality

Our crown center governs our desire for knowledge, self-awareness, and answers to the bigger questions about life. The intellect and intellectual understanding forms the basis of these desires. Intellectual understanding does not necessarily make us wise or successful. Intellectual understanding of spirituality and self-realization does not liberate us. It is only through realizing inner truths within ourselves that we continue to expand our consciousness to the degree that we can self-actualize and experience deep self-fulfillment.

Fulfilling the desire for self-realization requires extensive contemplation and a simple, meditative lifestyle that allows for the time and space to be immersed in the presence of ourselves. Releasing the desire for intellectual knowledge opens the door to intuitive knowledge. Transmuting the desire for intellectual knowledge increases our ability to access inner truths, gain insight, and develop wisdom through reflection and contemplation.


There are 10 elements to Self-Realization:

  1. Self-awareness and body-awareness.
  2. Self-acceptance and self-love.
  3. Self-nurturing and cultivation.
  4. Emotional well-being and maturity.
  5. Mindfulness and conscious decision making.
  6. Self-inquiry and investigation (questioning everything, especially habits and beliefs).
  7. Open-mindedness, aspiring to higher truths and higher purpose.
  8. Expanded perspectives, meta cognition, meditation, stillness.
  9. Perseverance and devotion.
  10. Equanimity and the ability to integrate polarities.

Virtual Reality and Immersive Worlds – A Reality Check

Virtual Reality & Immersive Worlds – A Reality Check Article

SHORTCUTS: My Gaming History, Why did I give it up? What happened when I gave it up? Is our world a game too? How do we create the life we want in reality instead? Resources and Articles

My Gaming History

I played massively multiplayer online games (MMOS) like Dungeons and Dragons, Elder Scrolls, Guild Wars, Lords of the Rings, World of Warcraft, and Final Fantasy for many years during my early twenties till late thirties. During my early teens and up until I moved onto MMOS I played the original quest games like King’s Quest, Space Quest, Police Quest, as well as Quake, Unreal Tournament and similar games on a computer. Before that I played console games on the television, I do not know at what age it started but we were very young. Gaming became an integral part of my life and it took many years to slowly disconnect until about 38 when I finally pushed through to quit completely. The truth is that I sometimes still miss the games, I loved DDO, the unique characters I created, and the guild, I never deleted my game accounts, but I will not go back because I now love my life, I love my home, and I love living with a greater purpose and deeper fulfillment.

Why did I give it up?

Why did I give it up? Because I realized that the time and energy I was investing in the games I was not investing in creating the life I wanted in our persistent reality. The gaming world is beautiful, exciting, fun, and there can be a real sense of achievement and fulfillment on multiple levels. The gaming world provides a huge escape when we are not truly happy with our daily lives. Gaming became a coping mechanism, an escape, and an addiction for me. Virtual worlds are also reflection of the superficial relationship styles that dominate the current world and they become a way of coping with a lack of real intimate and meaningful relationships.

What happened when I gave it up?

What happened when I gave it up? Over many years I slowly decreased my gaming time and replaced it with drawing, writing, relaxing, contemplating, reading, studying, creating a self-sufficient home, growing a fruit, nut, vegetable and herb garden, and doing everything else that was good for me and made me feel good. I followed my authentic joy to create a life I really love. I have never been happier, healthier, or more grateful for being alive than I am now, and it gets better every year.

Is our world a game too?

Is our world a game too? The more I started contemplating my life, studied new subjects, experimented with ideas, and discovered myself through various methods, the more I realized that life was really like a game. I use many of the skills I learned in the gaming world to help me expand my consciousness because they were the tools I had available and could build on. The skills include playfulness, open-mindedness, consistent personal development, perseverance, self-inquiry, meta-cognition, patience, trust, and determination. I now understand the basics of human psychology and it is clear that we are programmed in our early lives which will determine the life we live unless we choose to expand ourselves into an authentically empowered individual. Most of us have very limiting programming simply from being born into the current world that has significant unhealthy and immature patterns. It takes focus, time, and energy to break free from the limiting programming and create the life we want to live. I really believe that each one of us can live a life we love when we choose to engage this reality in the way we would an immersive game. My life is the evidence I have.

How do we create the life we want in reality instead?

How do we create the life we want in reality instead? Without a conscious choice to expand ourselves our lives will be run by limiting programming from our subconscious minds (habits) that were programmed in our first 7 years of interacting with our parents, caregivers and siblings. Limiting programming is found in traditional school systems, medications, addictions, pleasure seeking activities, jobs we do for money and everything else that comes with the old programming from past generations. Our lives are a printout of our programming. If there is anything in our lives that we are not 100% satisfied with, then it is because of a limiting program running.

The first step is becoming consciously aware of the programs we are running, and the limiting beliefs we have that are governing our lives. The second step is to use whatever tools are available to create new habits that we know will serve us. This is all part of the Process of Transformation that has daily, weekly, and annual cycles that become evident as we walk this intuitive path. To do this most efficiently we can see ourselves as a character in a game and not take all the programming personal, not believe all the things running through our head, and become our own best friend that helps us to achieve self-fulfillment. Self-fulfillment is unique for each of us, each of us have our own innate talents, gifts and abilities that determine what we can become when we are self-empowered individuals.

The Future 2022 and Beyond

The Future 2022 and Beyond by Nathalie Strassburg

SHORTCUTS: What is going on? What is the greater purpose? How can we prepare ourselves? Some Ideas

We are living in an interesting time with many changes around us. There is a greater purpose to all that is happening. The best strategy is to align ourselves with the pattern that we are in so that we can flow with the changes and experience harmony, peace and prosperity regardless of what is going on in the world.

What is going on?

So what is going on? We are in the early stages of a longer term cycle to remedy underlying energetic stagnation. We can already see greater instability in nearly all areas of our lives. Political, social and economical instability are the physical manifestations of the energetic changes that are happening. The majority of social, political and economical systems are going through a period of decay and change that will continue as we move towards something that is more sustainable.

What is the greater purpose?

What is the greater purpose of it? We are entering into a time that will allow for reflection, greater sensitivity, greater awareness, and healing of the unresolved trauma and emotional energy that is a part of our evolutionary journey and the underlying cause of the trouble we see in individuals, our relationships, and communities. These changes will allow us to become more sustainable within ourselves, and create a more sustainable world.

How can we prepare ourselves?

The best way to prepare ourselves is through the perspective we choose to have. Unsustainable ways will not work anymore. We can see this as an opportunity to create the kind of world we want to live in, from where we are, and what we are capable of. This is not something that will be lead by governments or large organizations, it will come from individuals, an inner revolution, because we are the vehicles through which consciousness transforms.

The kind of perspective that embraces change includes equanimity, optimism, using the tension of transformation and allowing change to occur within us, and in our lives by making any changes we can to our lifestyle that make things simpler and easier.

Some Ideas

Reduce unsustainable spending, save money, plan ahead, make the changes necessary to live simpler, and rely less on money.

Invest in your home, create the kind of home that you love to be in.

Take care of your body by doing some regular exercise and eating as healthy as you can (vegetables, fruits, herbs).

Release any destructive addictions and pleasure seeking habits, these hold a tremendous amount of power from us. Releasing them is self-empowering.

Master your Desires – Rest the mind and senses.

Take care of your emotional well-being. Do shadow work, learn to see the world from a metaphysical perspective, and learn how to use your dreams to guide you to greater awareness.

Learn the Art of Self-Love.

Cultivate a growth mindset, and release thoughts and beliefs of victimization.

Embrace the Process of Transformation.

Understand the Spectrum of Relationships, commit to compatible relationships, and let go of people who are not compatible so that the right people can find each other.

If possible, grow a garden with some basic herbs, fruits and vegetables. You can also join others or create community gardens. Creating a garden is a powerful alchemical process that will transform you from the inside.

Become more self-sufficient so that you travel less, and require less imports and goods that come from far away.

Rely less on governments and organizations that are unsustainable.

Invest some of your energy in your community and neighbors.

Find a higher purpose to live for by following your authentic joy. Money and pleasure are not sustainable purposes.

Spend more time doing activities that are uplifting and nourishing, for example: art (you can learn Intuitive Geometry), dancing, playing, spending time outside, talking about uplifting subjects, reading about people and subjects that are inspiring, watching educational media, walking in nature, gardening, writing, meditating, making or listening to uplifting music, dreaming, relaxing, and being still.

Learn to relax and be still. Excessive thinking and activities are a reflection of the energetic instabilities, learn to bring your energetic system into greater coherence and equilibrium through your breath and focusing your awareness on one thing.

Develop your intuitive abilities, it is life’s intelligence guiding you. Science shows us that our intuitive abilities rely on the degree of coherence we can embody.

Learn to appreciate yourself, life as it is, nature, animals and the people around you.

Release any grievances, and practice forgiveness and compassion.

Create daily practices that bring inner peace such as contemplation, affirmations, and gratitude.

Expand your consciousness by integrating new ideas, letting go of old beliefs and limiting ideas that do not serve you or bring you joy.

Conflict & Peace

Conflict and Peace I Ching Hexagram 6 Heaven over Water

We can choose to understand war, conflict, and peace from a greater perspective, instead of falling into the traps of the intellectual mind that gets caught up in what, who, why, the right, and wrong. Conflict is like inflammation, it is part of the individual, regional, global, and universal process of energy transformation. War is an intense flare-up that indicates additional energy is being focused to resolve the underlying conflict. To judge conflict by looking at the current effect on individuals, countries or the world is a mental trap that feeds the conflict. Instead, I invite you to expand your consciousness. If you must use the mind, first seek to understand all sides of any conflict, as if you are each side, until you can identify with both empathically. This process might require creativity and the study of years of history. Then seek to understand it from a metaphysical perspective that serves all of humanity.

This is the essence of shadow work, transmutation, and transformation.

Thoughts of war, conflict, anger, and resistance create more conflict. Choose thoughts that bring you inner peace, and it affects all of life.

I Ching Hexagram: SUNG Heaven / Water. Action: Let Go. Hidden influence: 37 Balance. Underlying cause: 36 Emotion.


Ecological self – Priest/Priestess: to inspire. To balance, aspire more.

I Ching 6 Peace

Polarity: Aggressive < Peaceful > Undisturbed


Everything we think is bad, such as conflict, is merely the partner of its opposite. The principle of polarities is a key element of transmutation where we learn how to transform energy from one side to the other. Every situation where there is conflict is an invitation for understanding higher truth. This is how we learn to inspire and uplift ourselves using this tension of transformation. It is through higher self-awareness that we master polarities, ourselves, and our emotional waves.

The lessons we learn are themed around realizing that conflict can only occur between two parties that are defending themselves against the other. Each side will feel justified in its position, otherwise the conflict could not occur. Peace is a choice we can make in every moment. Thoughts of attack make the idea of attack possible, and then affirms the choice by making the experience of attack real.   

To cultivate this higher awareness of the tension of transformation we must open our minds to understanding life from a different perspective. It is only through a conscious choice of living a peaceful life that we will learn and have the evidence through our experience. Words are meaningless without the evidence and the inner realization that make them valuable.

The only thing worth fighting for in this world is inner peace.

Self-Realization

Self-Realization by Nathalie Strassburg
  1. What is Self-realization?
  2. The 4 Phases of Self realization
  3. The 10 Key Elements of Self Realization

What is Self-realization?

Self-realization is knowing yourself.

Self-realization is a term used in psychology, philosophy, and spirituality to refer to fulfilling our needs to become an authentic self that lives to our fullest potential. Self-realization is what the game of life is really about, it is a process of individual empowerment and unifying our consciousness.

There are certain needs that we meet on the road to self-realization. They include physiological needs, safety needs, belonging, self-esteem, cognitive and aesthetic needs.


Self-realization is the road to inner peace and joy.

The 4 Phases of Self-realization

Undefined self

The undefined self is the homogenised self that has been developed through conditioning to fit into the family, community, and culture in which we find ourselves. Currently this is the state of most people.

At this stage, our individual’s sense of self is located outside, we are really living through others. What this means is that our value and worth is defined by others. We can feel powerless at this stage, feel unfulfilled, live a life that we do not like, feel depressed, be in co-dependent relationships, enmeshment, lack of trust in life, lack of enthusiasm, lack of emotional well-being, lack of purpose and isolation. Our intuition cannot function coherently when our sense of self is located outside of ourselves.

Authentic self

Individuation is the process by which we come to distinguish ourselves from others. In psychology it is understood as the process by which a self develops through integrating elements of our personality with life experiences. It is the part of our development where we transcend group attachment. This process can start in teenage years if the parents are emotionally mature enough themselves to accommodate uniqueness.

The defined self has healthy boundaries, developed self-awareness, is mindful of themselves and others, is emotionally mature, actively aspires, intuitive, and open minded. For the authentic self our sense of self is centered within ourselves, we meet our needs, and we work to integrate new knowledge and experiences.

Higher Self

As we embody more of our authentic self, our relationship with life, to others and the world transforms. We move beyond personal preferences and self interest. The wisdom that we gain through the process inspires us to live intentionally, as an example for others, and for a higher purpose.

At this stage we embody a much greater, and more refined frequency as matter and spirit come together. We experience a greater sense of fulfillment, vitality, synchronicity and abundance.

Liberated Self

The process of transformation and individuation can lead an individual to see the truth behind the veil of our worldly experience. We can truly know within ourselves that we are not the character, or roles we play here, but the player.

The 10 Key Elements of Self Realization

  1. Self-awareness and body-awareness.
  2. Self-acceptance and self-love.
  3. Self-nurturing and cultivation.
  4. Emotional well-being and maturity.
  5. Mindfulness and conscious decision making.
  6. Self-inquiry and investigation (questioning everything, especially habits and beliefs).
  7. Open-mindedness, aspiring to higher truths and higher purpose.
  8. Expanded perspectives, meta cognition, meditation, stillness.
  9. Perseverance and devotion.
  10. Equanimity and the ability to integrate polarities.

The Game Setup

The Game Setup by Nathalie Strassburg
  1. Introduction
  2. Birth Design
  3. Spectrum of Consciousness
  4. Attachment Style
  5. Childhood Conditioning
  6. The Psychology of Projection
  7. Shadow Work
  8. Opportunities for Resolution & Expansion
  9. Rules of the Game
  10. Call to Adventure
  11. Transformation

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.

The I Ching – A Universal Binary Model

The I Ching

SHORTCUTS: Introduction to the I Ching, A Universal Model, Intuitive Geometry & The I Ching, I Ching Diagram, Spectrum of Consciousness, Your Personalized I Ching Profile & Report, Profile Report Example

Introduction to the I Ching

The I Ching is Chinese and the oldest of all the classical systems, from around 800 BCE. It is a great universal model and one of the oldest books in the world. It is based on simple binary (what our computers are built on) with 64 themes. In its original form it guides through the ways of nature, and provides wisdom for contemplation and insightful answers to questions.

A Universal Model

The hexagrams that form the basis of the I Ching are from the Bagua, in Taoist Cosmology. It is the 8 symbols that represent the basic principles of existence. It is represented by the 8 trigrams, 8 elements of nature: Earth, Wind, Fire, Thunder, Mountain, Water, Lake, and Heaven. Each trigram has three lines, each line either “open” or “solid”, representing yin or yang, 0 or 1 forming binary numbers 000-111 (0 to 7).

Intuitive Geometry & the I Ching

I had some knowledge of the I Ching Hexagrams by the time I got into geometry and created the Intuitive Geometry book. Intuitive Geometry is intended to be a universal model to draw and design based on the same kind of universal structure so that Intuitive Geometry becomes a framework for an infinite number of projects. I believe the Intuitive Geometry system can be a great educational tool because we learn so much easier with colors and patterns.

Spectrum of Consciousness

The 64 hexagrams is a useful tool for exploring something as complex as the spectrum of human consciousness. Looking at the spectrum of consciousness through 8 primary themes makes it simpler to see a larger perspective while appreciating the subtle essence of each.

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.

The Languages of Self Love

Words of Self-affirmation

Encouragement, appreciation, empathy, honesty, listening to ourselves, focussing on our higher self. Showing ourselves compassion and speaking kindly to ourselves. Soothe ourselves during stressful times with positive statements and affirming truths. Daily use of Personal affirmations – listening, writing, reading, speaking, chanting, and singing. Journaling to understand one self, recognize our gifts, heal, and grow.


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. Having patience with our own growth. Relaxing and taking time to enjoy just being.


Acts of Self-Service

Action phrases that affirm positive beliefs, supports growth, releases grievances. Doing what is in our best interest and for the highest benefit of all. Meeting our needs in healthy ways. Meeting our emotional needs. Developing talents and interests. Making our physical and emotional well being our priority and our responsibility to the greatest degree possible. Following our authentic joy. Being authentic. Cultivating higher aspirations for our life. Facing our pain, healing the past and opening our hearts. Saying No. Saying no to co-dependency and yes to interdependency. Setting and maintaining healthy boundaries. Living a higher purpose. Friendship. Living with positive intentions and empowering others. Balance in giving and receiving support.


Quality Self-Time

Uninterrupted and focused conversations, writing, journaling, using a diary, recording, prayer, any one-on-one time with ourselves. Stillness is quality time. Meditation. Contemplation and introspection. Self-inquiry. Creative expression. Honoring ourselves, our feelings, and our needs. Doing something special or unusual for ourselves. Reading or watching uplifting content. Time in Nature. Rest, recovery, and sleep.


Being Present in our Body

Non-verbal expressions such as touch, cuddling, stroking, massage, moving meditations, acts of self-care, long baths, warm shower, spa, exercise, hygiene, grooming, pampering, masturbating, tantra, yoga, dancing, qigong etc. Learning to trust our body’s inner wisdom.  Paying attention to ourselves, our feelings, our thoughts, and being mindful.

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. Through contemplation we develop self awareness, compassion and acceptance for all the roles we play. With self awareness comes the ability to see the power we have to be who we want to be, regardless of the past, and we consciously choose to develop and play our best self in this life.

Body

This is us as the Inquirer, and the highest manifestation is Grace. The body learns love through feeling and investigation. This is all about cultivating self awareness and developing trust in the intelligence of life and the body.

Spirit

This is us as the Liberator, and the highest manifestation is Universal Love. Our spirit learns love through intuition and cultivating the use of our will to aspire to higher love.

Soul

This is us as the Creator, and the highest manifestation is Joy. Our soul learns love through our authentic joy, developing the use of our imagination, and expressing ourselves creatively.

The Spectrum of Self Love

Instinctive self – Server: to help. To balance, give unconditional love to yourself.

Tribal self – Artisan: to create. To balance, do creative things that you love.

Compulsive self – Sage: to entertain. To balance, learn to discipline yourself with love and compassion.

Rational self – Scholar: to learn. To balance, learn to love playing.

Achiever self – Warrior: to achieve. To balance, appreciate yourself.

Ecological self – Priest/Priestess: to inspire. To balance, aspire to universal love.

Integrated self – King/Queen: to be a role model. To balance, expand your idea of love.

Holistic self – Higher Self: to be. To balance, be love.

Unify Consciousness – The spectrum of the self

Unify Consciousness - The spectrum of the self by Nathalie Strassburg

My life experiences have led me to conclude that life is a game, a game of spiritual transformation, and the name of the game is “Who do I think I am?” Read more about this idea in Life as a Game and The Transformation Process.

We are in a biological computer with 4 primary areas of development: Mind, Body, Soul, and Spirit. Balance is achieved when these areas are in harmony with each other. The soul and spirit are the more subconscious aspects, while the mind and body are the more conscious aspects. Everything is about the relationship with our self. This is a single player game. Read more about The Art of Self Love.

Mind

This is us as the Actor, and the highest manifestation is Peace. The skills we develop are Judging (Contemplation) and Thinking (Compassion). This is the field of psychology.

Body

This is us as the Inquirer, and the highest manifestation is Grace. The skills we develop are Prospecting (Investigation) and Feeling (Intelligence). This is the field of sciences.

Spirit

This is us as the Liberator, and the highest manifestation is Love. The skills we develop are Intuition (Intuiting) and Willing (Affirming). This is the field of spirituality and all about self-love.

Soul

This is us as the Creator, and the highest manifestation is Joy. The skills we develop are Observation (Creativity) and Imagination (Concentration). This is the field of art and culture.


To integrate or unify our consciousness into a harmonious whole we must consider each aspect of our self. Within each of us we find the: instinctive self, tribal self, compulsive self, rational self, achiever self, ecological self, integrated self, and holistic self. Each one of these selves has different needs and each is integrated into the next before holism is achieved.

Think of it as a playful road map of the self that we can use for the path of self-realization or self-fulfillment.

The spectrum of the self

Instinctive self – Server: to help. To balance, give unconditional service to others.

Tribal self – Artisan: to create. To balance, do creative projects.

Compulsive self – Sage: to entertain. To balance, learn discipline.

Rational self – Scholar: to learn. To balance, play more.

Achiever self – Warrior: to achieve. To balance, appreciate more.

Ecological self – Priest/Priestess: to inspire. To balance, aspire more.

Integrated self – King/Queen: to be a role model. To balance, expand consciousness.

Holistic self – Higher Self: to be. To balance, be still.

Purpose is not a future goal; it is something we are doing in every single moment. Everything that comes into our space is there so that we can fulfill the purpose presented to us in the moment.

If we find ourselves in an unhappy place it is because we have not learned how to make ourselves happy. If we see things in the world or our life that we do not like, then it is because there are parts in ourselves that we are not in harmony with.  For example, if your life is complicated then you have not integrated the part of you that loves simplicity. We all have all parts; we cannot deny parts of ourselves without feeling and seeing the consequences.     

Painful experiences teach us about vulnerability and when we have tough experiences it often reflects a great unconscious desire to transcend the shadow frequency. Nothing is without reason; every moment has a purpose it fulfills. Fears are always gateways to higher awareness. When we stop seeing suffering as such, and choose to see the opportunity it brings then we do not suffer.

We are not the character/roles/personality, we are really the player. We can expand our consciousness to see the ebb and flow of events, with appreciation or compassion, but without losing ourselves in it.
