'Sacred Symbols Out of the Void A3C' by Chris Pringer, October 2015



          This is as consistent a summary of laws and principles on this subject as I've been able to assemble. I have attempted to translate for 'normal consumption' although "regular folk" may have to read this a couple of times to bring it all into context. It is broadly representative, if not exhaustive, and is collected from the more authoritative sources of existential wisdom, metaphysical precepts, and concepts. The more basic of these I would consider "Universal Laws and Principles." Listed below are the 'laws' that I have found more specific to the human mind, and the dynamics regarding magnetism, creation, and related inner forces and momentums. We go in depth into their practical application (from the author's approach) in other essays. Most of the essays mentioned here are found at the Body-Mind Integration web site, at the addresses shown in the "Related Articles" section further below. Note: It can difficult to communicate the more complex eclectic topics effectively in an essay or two, where it can easily be overly generalized relative to ones individual experience(s). Some of the below material may fall into that category. Whereas a personally written or verbal exchange based on one's own experience and perceptions might fill in many gaps. EG: When someone is telling me their story, I can address, can be present with and for the individual and his/her circumstance as best I can learn to do so in that period of time.



          (C1)          The order of creation on the earth plane (according to most metaphysically-oriented philosophies/systems of the last 12,000 years, or at least as recorded since then) begins first with the inspiration or the idea (via the mental body); second, with the motivation (via the emotional body) to do, have, and/or be; and third, after formation in the bio-etheric realm [that of bio-energetics, meridians, aura's as seen by a few people] it finally gets manifested into physical existence. Things are brought from the more subtle realms of existence into 'the physical' realm via spoken word, physical deed. Sometimes things are "manifested" simply through the recognition - by the five senses - that something *already* exists!. This latter statement pertains to beliefs (as the precursor to the thing or situation to be manifested), whether conscious or subconscious.

         [Intro Note 1: All that, particularly as regards the initial beginnings of things, and also as regards the bio-etheric realm, is modified and expanded upon in a later section, "A Cosmology of the Body-Mind-Spirit Self." But just as we come to gain knowledge through context of various presentations of knowledge, knowing there are dimensions of pereption within dimensions of perception in every realm of life, so goes the appreciation of context and depth of anything worth learning. Or such is one perception, once it becomes a belief, that may foster deeper understanding.

          Intro Note 2: A belief is an emotionally charged thought or idea. It is a thought with a personal attachment to it -- attached with emotion. The more emotionally charged/attached the belief, the more creative power and impact it has in one's life, whether we are conscious of it or not, let alone consciously like it or not. Which refers to our early childhood influences, conditioning, programming, etc. Which we call "the setup" provided via past lives and related karma, metaphysically speaking. Related (less metaphysical) terms: "subjective" perception generally refers to that from within oneself, usually conscious, as opposed to "objective" which tends to be physically verifiable by others as well. [I invite reader to use "Thought Forms and Beliefs" in an internet search . Or keep reading here, do that search later.]

          (C2)           Whether or not you get what you want, divine law says that you always get what you need (although it may appear contrary to our conscious belief system) One may NEED to change one's BELIEFS, in order that one's DESIRES become aligned with one's (true or higher) NEEDS. Implied here is that beliefs and desires are directly related, whereas desires (or beliefs) and actual needs may be quite different. Awareness of what one desires and believes is important in determining what one needs, and from this one better knows what one may receive. Also that prayers are always answered; "prayers" in this case, include ALL of ones thought and spoken word - to our less than official gods, as well as That/those we might call God.) From here one can determine choices, goals, and priorities. See "The Achievement of Goals, Attainment and the Role of Inner-Work" (sometimes referred to as "The Goal Chart") and other elaboration in the essay on "Abundance." [For best context, keep reading here, go there later.]

          (C3)           Desires are based on beliefs. All of one's beliefs affect one's perception of and response to one's environment. They also affect one's personal magnetism -- and therefore the way in which one attracts people, things and opportunities to oneself. In such ways, beliefs affect one's manner of manifesting things/experiences. This makes sense (and is a little more palatable) when one understands that, with the exception perhaps, of a rare few people on the planet, not all of one's beliefs are CONSCIOUSLY known or accessible under normal conditions-- many may be forgotten or repressed. Hence, the existential tenant that "ONE GETS ONLY WHAT ONE BELIEVES IN." Unconscious beliefs -- about self, others, life, health, wealth, death, etc. -- can have AS MUCH OR EVEN MORE impact on what we attract/create as can conscious beliefs!

          (C4)           It is not unusual to have contradictory beliefs any more than it is to have mixed feelings or conflicting goals, but in the case of strongly conflicting beliefs, one of the two is usually subconscious. This is illustrated when we put conscious effort in one direction and discover, after the fact, that we have also blocked that direction. Contradicting directions is the major (if not only) source of excess tension in the mind and body. "Excess" here means harmful to some degree or potentially harmful if maintained on a permanent basis. Tension is also the physical correlation of motivation, drive, or "charge", and it is indicative of a (subjective, felt) state of incompletion. That is not "bad," it is simply a communication that "begs" (eventually needs) to be addressed, metaphysically speaking, but more on that in another essay.

          (C5)           Unconscious beliefs are unconscious generally due to their having been associated with an event, often traumatic, that one unconsciously fears the memory of. For this reason the memory and various associated data was repressed (referring to that "setup" again). This fear is at least part of the charge that holds on to the belief, and there are likely other emotions that were not allowed/safe to be felt and/or expressed at the time of the event. It requires energy to repress high-impact information from memory access and a lot of repression can cause exhaustion in otherwise "high energy" individuals. Here is where the creation of "coping mechanisms" comes into play (see next section). There is much to be said for the integrated process of acceptance of the "shadow" aspects of self; see the essay on Self-Parenting.
          In E5, further below, we go into "The problem" of magnetism, attraction, and the timing of related cause and effect dynamics and about that ole' "new age" saying, "We create our experience."  



          (BM1)           Bones (the skeleton, posture and movement, alignment and mis-alignment) are moved or held by muscles, muscles are moved or held by attitudes, reaction patterns, and other emotion/ feeling-charged thoughts. These are governed overall by beliefs. Beliefs are the result of thoughts and/or personal experience -- physically manifested and/or imagined. The intensity of the experience determines the power of the belief, and therefore the degree of momentum invested in any related postural or movement pattern manifested in the body. These invested patterns are sometimes referred to as "Body-Memory".

Sticky muscles come from sticky-(e)motions!

         It's true.
         There is actually a relationship between muscle habit patterns and emotional habit patterns.
         Muscles are designed to work and flow individually and/or together in a variety of associations with each other; not to stick together by chronic associative tension -- unless there was an overriding command to stick together due to a perceived need to create a splint or some other kind of "armoring". With the later, instead of flow-motion we get adhered muscle sheaths ("fascial adhesions") that more easily lead to injury after one is 35 or 40 years old, and leading to compound adhesions ==> thus sticky muscles! (But of course, if you are a young athelete, that is actually a million years away, so why worry, right? Ha)
          Therefore, sticky muscles come from sticky-(e)motions! --> That creates (a feeling of) sticky-bones! We all have at least a little of this condition in one body area or another. So what can we do? Briefly stated, we can unglue sticky motions by lubricating rusty thoughts, unclumping clogged beliefs, and clearing out emotional storage. That is, we can initiate some form of body-mind integrative therapy which will include a program for individualized personal growth process.

         At the "Inner-Communications / My Cells - My Children" page, there is a section on "Body-Parenting" in Mind-Body Integration - a powerful form of preventative health maintenance. The page in general illustrates the dynamic relationships of Spirit, mind, body, and emotions, as well as the inner-child-parent-family, including the cells, organs, and body systems. [Via "Related Articles" section. For best context, keep reading here, go there later.]
         And if we think about it, we can understand that, like cells, human beings and the individual living components that make them up -- work together best by being *unique* - truly unique (by being their true selves - and yet by cooperating in integrated Harmony.
         This allows complementary movement/action, a means of working through, learning from conflict, and without creating uniformity. Here the *motivation* (or motivator) is not competition per say. Certainly not of the comparative, make-someone-less-than-someone-else variety, which induces separation through jealousy, antagonism, feelings of relative incompetence, and reluctant and/or denied imitation, adoration, nationalization, etc. Because as a result of that kind of competition we actually create more uniformity!
          Whereas what we want is long-term efficiency through a cooperating diversity of special capabilities with time-tested strength in stamina, flexibility, & resiliancy. Which is what the "Tensing Yoga" system (geared to incorporate body-parenting) is all about.
[For best context, keep reading here, go there later. Keeping a list yet? ]

          (BM2)           The "Coping Mechanism" (CM) is what we learned to do and/or be in our infancy and childhood to get our basic needs met. That is, this is learned when our parents were not there physically or emotionally, were confusing, dangerous or abusive, disrespectful of our actual needs, or otherwise irresponsible. The CM is creatively developed (consciously or not) to provide as much feeling of safety, love, and acceptance as necessary for survival. For example, loud talking helps get the needed attention of loud-talking parents. When the CM is formed very early, it becomes a habit pattern. This can be so even if we may not see it or see it as different from other's behavior, let alone as bothersome, self-sabotaging, or worse. We can forget (if ever really learned) that the situation that required the CS is not always going on or about to happen, etc. Then we don't see that other strategies -- that more appropriately get what we need -- are available as choices.

A Cosmology of the Body-Mind-Spirit Self
    and related tenants in heirarchy of cause and effect, considered as underlying the Work

     1)  the muscles move the bones (in spite of what a few old school chiropractors seem to imply sometimes), the fascia provides the 'relationship-interconnecting web-matrix', as well as the glide-flow surfaces for all muscles, as well as every organ in the body.
     2)  the feelings move the muscles, that is, the feelings and (unconscious) stored emotion-data (all of which comprising 'the emotional-body') determine the setting and changing of the state of muscle tension, which determine the "automatic"/ habitual holding and/or movement patterns in the muscles and fascia. EG: If your muscles are working (tense) when they are not actually working (doing something you want them to do), then it is the emotional body that is directing the holding of that extra tension.
     3)  thoughts move the feelings, that is, they create/govern the feelings, both of which (thoughts and feelings) have the power tocreate beliefs -- which is to say that the mental perspective determines the feelings and emotions. Beliefs are thoughts made more permanent (consciously or unconsciously) by attached emotional charges. EG: If the mind perceives a need to fear and armor up, the muscles respond (aided or totally controlled by the adrenal response). But until the (adrenal oriented) "all clear" signal is given or fully received, the emotion is held in the muscles until released, and until then a belief is formed, usually unconsciously, about similarly perceived experiences.
     4)  the soul moves all the above-- more or less under auspicious of God/Higher Power (depending on one's view of cosmology and it's functional implications for some plan...) that determines "the setup" (parentage and birth situation, etc) which initiates the individual's perception of self, of others, of one's environment, and experience of relationships with human and divine personages on the Earth plane... humans being in physical bodies, in which... (return to 1) smile
      NOTE: Please read the above in context with the below notes, which hopefully assist and deepen one's understanding.

Another way of saying that:
      The BONES (the skeleton, posture and movement, alignment and mis-alignment) are moved or held by MUSCLES, muscles are moved or held by ATTITUDES and their related mental-emotional reaction patterns. These are governed overall by BELIEFS, which are THOUGHTS invested with EMOTION(S). Beliefs are the result of personal experience -- physically manifested and/or imagined and/or as taught. The intensity of the experience, imagination, and/or teaching determines the power of the belief, and therefore the degree of momentum invested in any related POSTURAL and/or MOVEMENT PATTERN manifested in the body. (These invested patterns are primary to what is sometimes referred to as "BODY-MEMORY".)


      Spirit - The interconnecting as well as dynamic current for the flow of driving forces (thought, emotion, and Spirit) that create change and transformation in mind and body.

      Mind - The Mental "Vehicle", is the interactive consciousness that manages our perceptions and responses and defines our choices. The brain is one tool of the mind.

      Emotion - The Emotional-Body is seat of desire as per "Emotion & Motivation on the Path and in Healing," as complements the physical and mental bodies. [For best context, keep reading here, go there later.]

      Belief - "the bridge between the mental and emotional bodies" - is here defined as a thought attached to one's consciousness with/by emotion (or the other way around, depending on which initiated the bond for a given belief). Related: [The other material on this page]

      Body - The Physical "Vehicle" is a reality not that separate from the mind, but a functional extension of unconscious as well as of conscious thought, emotion, and belief.

      Elaboration on these concepts can be accessed via this link: "Victims, Compassion, & Responsibility -- Notes on The Emotional-Body, Denial of Pain, & 'Easy Answers' (Not)" [For best context, keep reading here, go there later.]

      Holographic Interconnectedness: Each part reflects the whole; what happens on one level of a system affects all other levels - "As Above, So Below". Given this, our inner subjective realities tell us everything we are here to learn in a given life. And since our minds and emotions express through our bodies, then to the degree we interprete the body's language (including the emotions expressed through them as well as through thought and word), we can then "read" our paths and purposes. But that is quite the tall order - and rarely is a person so adept, of course.

      From a spiritual perspective, although the body vibrates at a lower frequency than does the mind, it communicates the Soul's energy all the same. And it is always telling us, point-blank, what we don't otherwise perceive. We could say that, (via the storage of emotion in the body) the Higher Self lets the personality off the hook for the time being, by postponing the emotional integration process until the personality/ego is sufficiently developed to satisfactorily complete and learn from the experience. As for the processes that we complete, we can remember them, or the lessons derived from them, solely via the mental body. Thoughts only become attached to the personality -- as beliefs -- for the sake of providing a psychological structure to learn in and/or from. And structure is important in a personality's learning process. (The earlier in life, the more this is true, of course.) Emotional charge (i.e.: as related to an issue) is the binding agent for attaching a thought. Otherwise the thought (i.e.: a perception and related data) is left to flow more or less freely through the mental body, or can be re-organized as desired. We go into great detail (technically, psychologically) in about the storage and re-integration processes at the "Body-Mind Integration" page. [For best context, keep reading here, go there later.]



          (E1)           Beliefs are the result of learning -- observation and/or mentally applied focus/analysis. Personal experience includes conditioning by one's environment -- culture, mores, religion, actual physical surroundings, events and interactions with all that goes into that. Our conditioning, as regards concepts of time and space, size and solidity, reality and illusion, is very subtly but powerfully determined by what are called "planetary thoughtforms". These thoughforms (ie: "walls are solid" or "water is not solid enough to walk on") are no more than the result many people's common beliefs charged with emotion - millions of people for thousands of years (or more). The more frequent the case of absolute faith in the truth of them over great periods of time, the more powerful the thoughtform. Which is why those few who actually are able to free themselves of them are called "masters." Those include a relative few yogis (who do amazing feats that most anyone would consider miracles), including those who have indeed walked on water. [related note: Walking on fired coals without getting burned, all by intention, is neither a small example, nor a sure sign of self-mastery or self-realization. You might enjoy a book that also serves as a good reference in this regard: 'Autobiography of a Yogi' by Paramahansa Yogananda.]

          (E2)           This brings up the questions and concepts as relates belief to reality "to truth". How true is a belief that is impermanent? Now, we may wonder how we define "permanent". Rest assured, most all ancient philosophies grant permanence to some things, however few compared to what the average learned person believes. Intelligence as "normally" learned/perceived is not, in the views of masters of ancient wisdom, necessarily an indicator of a "healthy" or "spiritual" belief system, or visa versa. An in-depth body-mind awareness would be considered practical intelligence, and a conscious and constructive use of that awareness would be considered healthy and even spiritual.

          (E3)           For a more comprehensive guide to understanding and working with belief patterns and complexes, I suggest The Nature of Personal Reality by Jane Roberts and You Can Heal Your Life by Louise L. Hay, as well as the previously mentioned How to Enjoy All of Your Life, by Phil Laut. Once you are feeling particularly courageous, try out "Right Use of Will", and/or "Original Cause, the Unseen Role of Denial", by Ceanne DeRohan.

          (E4)           But for life to change on the earth plane -- towards more wholeness and well-being -- physical actions and creations need be made consistent with the principles of wholeness and well-being. This is not meant to be an invalidation of other sensing faculties or to say that things on non-physical levels have no useful role.

          (E5)           "The problem" of magnetism, attraction, and the timing of related cause and effect dynamics (especially including that ole' "new age" saying, "We create our experience"): As regards "divine law says that you always get what you need (although it may appear contrary to our conscious belief system)" and "All of one's beliefs ...also affect one's personal magnetism -- and therefore the way in which one attracts people, things and opportunities to oneself..." [and most all else above]: There would appear to most people to be great complexity, if not incredulity, regarding or due to the timing of the dynamics of cause (the magnet) and effect (that which is attracted to the magnet). And this incredulity is understandable. We could say *there are multiple and interracting factors over ANY amount of time (and/or other planes of reality) that determine how and when such 'rules' apply.* Remember the part in "Intro Note 2" about our early childhood influences, conditioning, programming, etc. Which we call "the setup" provided via past lives and related karma, metaphysically speaking (?)

          (E6)          The primary rule of karma (referring to E5) is that we get exactly what we need in order to learn whatever we need to learn. Including, eventually (over whatever number of lives and/or amount of time it takes) to learn unconditional LOVE - the kind of LOVE that spiritual masters such as Jesus and Buhhda lived and breathed. That is a big part of the evolution of the soul. Thence the need for reincarnation in order to assure there is enough variety of experience AND/WITH time in a physical body on a physical plane- to achieve that and other necessary learning. There is no free pass with reincarnation, ie: the "easy way out" becomes one more thing to learn about, "every hair counted," such that karma implies "Eternal Responsibility." And yet, learning does not necesitate pain or hardship, there is also "good karma" if you will. Its about balance. A key practical point here being that, when sufficient numbers of people/souls consciously recognize this very direct sow & reap relationship, then we will, as a planetary society, begin to act much much more responsibly.

         I've devoted a fair amount of time in presenting the case for recognizing (the law of) Karma, and it's sister law, reincarnation, LOGICALLY as well as historically, as the most viable cause & effect dynamic for how & why many, if not most events take place. There are many references and notes on the subject of karma and reincarnation at this site, as well as a few in depth essays, including "On Learning, Fairness, Truth, and Peace" at the "Evolution Trends" page. [A site search engine is available at the bottom of every page at this site, as well as a link to the "Chalice Bridge Update Page" (chronology of edits, additions, etc). For best context, keep reading here, go there later.]

           [Note:       With all due respect to those who maintain something to the effect that spiritual focus is all one should have, be, or do, and that thinking should be given up for a pure intuitive mind, I will add this: By faith and some degree of experience at least, I acknowledge the value of spiritual principles. I have also studied many and various spiritual or metaphysical systems or philosophies, some in depth, some in brief. I dare say, the hours I've spent in reading, contemplation, or meditation on these subjects alone would likely earn an associate degree. And yet, I am strongly influenced by the phrases, "In the world, but not of the world" and "...on earth as it is in heaven." I am also influenced by a hard-earned Left-Right brain balance developed between my Capricorn practicality and my Aries Moon, both as part a cardinal cross that also includes a Mars-Neptune conjunction in Libra and Uranus in Cancer. An astrologist called it "like managing four horses pulling in opposite directions," while adding that the Capricorn begins on land, then explores the depths of the sea, then climbs the mountain. Hence, I see, I think, I feel, and I write. ].

KarmaQ' (Love & Perpetual Responsibility) by Chris Pringer, July'14



(relative to the above principles)

          (R1)           If you want to change your life (including your body), you may need to find out which of your beliefs are not working for you and your goals, and replace them with beliefs that will. For one way to at least begin that, I refer you to the charts, "The Achievement of Goals, Attainment and the Role of Inner-Work" (sometimes referred to as "The Goal Chart"), "The Goal Chart WorkSheet", and accompanying notes in the chapter on Abundance.

          [That isn't a complete regimen, of course, and the regimen for you depends on your personal learning style among many other factors. And even then, it generally isn't easy, mainly because habits are difficult to break. And yet, that is exactly the potential benefit from investing time and application of principles illustrated in 'What The Bleep Do We Know - Down the Rabbit, Hole' (the DVD, available at most video outlets). This DVD is also one great means of learning about and enhancing your neuroplasticity, with the brain essentially being a tool kit that we each have opportunities to develop and enhance, even repair - from within. More on that via the Bleep Tool Kit section (via refs below).
          And/or if you want a few lists of key developmental activities for consideration, I can send you that if you'll contact me via info in the author/footer section].

More On "Ideals", added Jan'11):
          For many readers as well as this author, many of the ideals stated or implied on various pages at my site are supremely challenging to say the least, and understandably so. I write on the topic because I believe ideals help us formulate a useful vision by which we can effectively develop realistic and purposeful goals. Very few get to live up to our highest ideals, but without ideals, what would we live up to? More pragmatically (?) on the subject: "On Potential Realities, Ideals, Goals, and Accomplishment" at the "Evolution Trends" page, "More On 'Ideals'" & "...the Concept of Perfection" at the page, "Compassion, Healing, and The Practitioner -- and Detouring 'Burn-out'," "The Goal Chart - A Flow-Chart of the Human Psyche in Growth Facilitation and The Achievement of Goals, Attainment, and the Role of Inner-Work", And "Heart's Desire, Ideals, & Accomplishment" (Aug'11, on same page) is About clarifying what we most truly want, and how we can have that... also about HOW we respond to Pain & Loss (whether caused by disease, ourselves, others, or the economy) and are brought back together again - the *how* that can MAKE ALL THE DIFFERENCE. [For best context, keep reading here, go there later.]



          (P1)           Affirmations can be designed and used to uncover subconscious beliefs (see #9 below), but other methods are added for releasing the beliefs, due to related emotional aspects.

          (P2)           One cannot release what one has not forgiven and one cannot forgive what one has not allowed oneself to feel. * This concept is skillfully elaborated on by John Gray in What You Can Feel, You Can Heal. While this release can be done on one's own, it is rarely if ever premeditated depending on the scale of the catharsis. Much can be accomplished short of this (catharsis) with journaling and other self-help methods in processing "negative-judged feelings" and contradicting beliefs. We usually come to a point where those who are trained/experienced in facilitating release of deeply stored emotion and providing a loving, empathetic, but objective atmosphere, can assist us through otherwise very sluggish situations.

          (P3)           The following is a very brief description of common relationship dynamics between the mental body and emotional body. Please refer to the chapter on the emotional body for clarification. The mental body and the emotional body speak different languages. They can communicate, but for mental-dominant people, this is not often a reliable skill. The "civilized" mind is generally encouraged to be mental-dominant from birth, as we are too often conditioned not to trust our own feeling-senses when, as an infant, our parents seem to be in disagreement with them.

          Re-bridging the thought-emotion gap involves dramatic changes in how the mind regards emotional experience, particularly in terms of judgment and control. When the mind, which loves to analyse, jumps into a therapeutic emotional experience, a "discharge", it tends to prevent the discharge from continuing to completion. Once the mind can take a position of observation and allowingness, and surrender to the discharge, it begins to learn that it can do an even better job of analyzing, the situation - afterwards. And it learns to value the contribution and role of the emotional body.

          (P4)           There is a difference between releasing the emotional charge and getting caught up in "recycling" the emotion. In the latter, the belief is usually strengthened, the emotion is "entertained" as right and justified, as opposed to "understandable, all things considered." The whole complex then is given more power. This begins to change once the individual begins to become aware of the deeper aspects of the whole scenario as s/he is entertaining the complex. This may be very difficult to understand prior to experiencing it. It may be appropriate at this time to make a note to see "Seven Phases of Personal Growth."

          (P5)           To the degree of effectiveness that we have done "the Four R's" (Review, Release, Re-evaluate, Re-direct [per "Feedback And Recycle Loop" Chart at the "Goal Chart" page, partially based on main "Body-Mind Integration" essay]) with a given complex, we come to respond to situations (related to that complex) in a wholly new way. Before, when our "buttons were pushed," we reacted automatically in ways we later regretted and maybe even were amazed at. Now we begin to observe how we react/respond and experience more choice in how we respond in the situation. This can produce quite a rush of wonderful feelings -- empowerment and joy, completion (of an initiation hard fought), confidence in your capacities to deal effectively with challenge, while feeling love and loved at the same time.

          (P6)           It needs to be emphasized here, and in general, that the term "therapy" is meant here as any exercise that is self-employed or assisted by friends or professionals towards self-improvement, growth, personality change, etc. There would be no stigma attached to this process if not for the addictive need of the average "civilized person" of society to appear "normal" (whatever that means) before others. We need to allow ourselves to see this for what it is -- fear of disapproval, rejection, loss of love and security -- resulting in our giving away our power to be all that we can be. Then, as individuals and as a society, we will allow ourselves to face our insecurities, forgive our judgments, release our guilt, and begin to move out of the rut of helplessness that underlies our feelings of powerlessness. But I do see and feel that we are doing just that.

          (P7)           Certain types of meditation, Vipassana for example, facilitate self-knowledge and detachment from the various aspects of one's mind and emotions and body, uncovering hidden elements and giving clarity as to purpose, directions, and resources. This kind of detachment refers to a distancing from the pushes and pulls of emotions, so as to obtain an objective yet responsible state of awareness. This state is not the same as denial of feelings or being out of touch with emotional aspects of life on the earth plane. One of the best resources for this is A Gradual Awakening by Stephen Levine.

          (P8)           Affirmations can also be used to "out-gun" inappropriate beliefs by simply repeating an affirmation counter to the unwanted belief, while applying a corresponding feeling to verbalization. However, this is a matter of applied force of will against the force of your subconscious and, without working at deeper levels as noted above, is temporarily effective at best. A good analogy would be the use of aerosol on odors.

          (P9)           Affirmations are best used to uncover and to replace the old belief(s). (See the Essay, "Using Affirmations to Uncover and Transform Negative Beliefs and Attitudes," by Douglas Bloch). Affirmations are also effective vehicles for reinforcing the connection with one's divine qualities. Mantras are designed/inspired for this action of synthesis. Ancient mantras have been magnetized by the millions of conscious repetitions by Masters and aspirants down through the ages. The resulting powerful and "positive" energy increases the connection of divine qualities (those specifically invoked by the mantra) to those using the mantra today.
          (P10)           The appropriate use of questions, termed here "Positive Response Questions" (PRQ's), can be highly effective and less likely to "trigger" that part of one that feels a need to prove the old belief is more true. Please refer to [the chapter and exercises on this topic] the essays, "The Use of Questions in Affirmation Therapy" and "Quest & Soul You Shen -- Question and Solution Technique."

         Very Related, each best read in context with each other and the above, and likely(?) best in the order listed   [For best context, keep reading (we're almost done with the page essay), go with this in-depth set of techniques and related concepts later.] :

         ChBullet    "Strategies And Techniques for Efficient Body-Sizing Strategies" - because this same approach works for many other ways of (coping mechanisms for) dealing with stored emotions, including anger which is always about loss, whether actual, percieved, past or anticipated. Just brief through the (possibly highly analogous) parts about weight or body-size.
         ChBullet    "Understanding the Pattern Triad and The Body Pattern Assessment" and "The Pattern Triad Components" section - About Mind-Body Relationships, (from) coping mechanisms, (to) skills, (to) gifts through challenges on one's Life Path. This page is about how the body has habitually responded to experience is evidenced by the body's holding and movement patterns, including weight distribution. The first section or two about coping mechanisms should be good for now.
         ChBullet    "Pain Management & Body Parenting" - a brief overview, but includes some good points not covered elsewhere here, as well as a little different way of relating the ones that are. "Anger - Modes & Complexities" may be helpful as well.
         ChBullet    Pain, Relative to "True Courage vs Toughness" about anger as related to loss, coping mechanisms around that - read if as applies. If it does, consider the next section, "Notes On Pain From A Gestalt Perspective." If get caught up too deep, take a break and/or come back here, go on to the next suggested reading...
         ChBullet    "The Use Of Questions (and Gestalt approach) In Effective Affirmation Therapy - Theory and Examples for Practical Application" -- Sample PRQ's (Positive Response Questions) - get the feel of how the PRQ's work, read the preamble, look for the one about :How joyfully am I effectively responding to potential emotion-stirring current or past situations" - not to worry about it sounding "too positive," there is helpful overview of the healing process as well as technique here.
         ChBullet    The Forgiveness Set including "The Most Difficult Forgiveness," "Forgiveness" - Transcript of Talk by Janeane Weprin, and "Asking for Forgiveness, & What's Trust Got to Do With It?"
         ChBullet    The Body-Mind Approaches page includes some worthwhile sections, including "Which Approach For EMOTIONS?", "About Therapy (Reason for & against seeking it)."

         And now, you may need to recheck those above links for the inner-child related viewpoints, and the therapeutic journaling technique, and use of the pillow. And you can always email me for clarification, maybe a customized tip or two smile

          SUMMARY NOTE or "What To Believe About 'What To Believe' - about ourselves, individually - and how that effects us socially or communally" - For those that have a belief system that coalesces all that which it also accepts, includes, and encourages into a working whole: Physical bodies - that is their multiple universes of bodily cells and systems- are much more likely to "behave" according to that belief system, an important part of which behavior includes their immune system that maintains their bodies - also in that accordance with that belief system. Elaboration on that concept, in the form of specific examples, as well as scientific backup and practical applications, particularly as related to self-healing, can be found at the "Body-Mind Integration" and "Body-Mind Nutrition" pages. Look for references to Dan Siegel and Mindsight Institute if interested in brain-mind research findings as related to body-mind integration. Related from there include the "Notes on Beliefs, Healing, and Prayer" page, and for more communal applications (besides E6 above), the "World Healing Prayers over Sacred Geometry Graphic Backgrounds" pages.

'Sacred Symbols Out of the Void 3B2' by Chris Pringer, October 2015


Exerpted from the book, HOW TO ENJOY ALL OF YOUR LIFE, by Phill Laut

        Emotions themselves are generally a result of resisting something. The emotion will only continue being an emotion for as long as you continue resisting it. If you allow yourself to surrender completely to an emotion, and enjoy it, it will integrate and you'll suddenly find yourself in a good mood. An integrated emotion is not exactly an emotion. Some examples:

        Happiness means surrendering to what is so. In the models we use, happiness is not considered an emotion.

        Sadness comes from resisting a past change or from resisting the fact that something you are experiencing now is passing irrevocably into the past. When a change that happened in the past is made wrong, it is interpreted as "loss". If you surrender to your feeling of sadness you will end up with a pleasant memory, enjoyable feelings, and gratitude. If you resist a pleasant memory you will get sadness.

        Anger is a result of resisting your "purpose" by which we mean something you feel you must do. For instance, suppose you are watching the Super Bowl and you are happily munching potato chips and drinking beer. Right when things are getting pleasurably tense and an important play is happening, somebody rings your doorbell. If you are clear that your purpose is to watch the game and you ignore the door, then you will be happy, not angry. If you are clear that answering the door is more important than watching the game and you surrender to that task you will be happy, not angry. But if you think you are obligated to answer the door and what you really want to do is watch the game, then that despicable dolt who rang your bell had better watch out! If you include your anger in your enjoyment of the present moment, you will again be happy with your visitor. Integrated anger is purposefulness. Resisted purposefulness is anger.

        Fear comes from imagining a future possibility and resisting it. When fear integrates, what you have is certainty that you will do whatever it takes to prevent anything that is not in alighment with your goals from happening. Either you realize that you had nothing to fear or else you become enthusiastic about preventing it. If you try to feel safe without preparing for the future, you will experience either fear or suppression. Fear is extremely important to effectiveness. If you are persisting in doing something that is likely to cause some bad result for you in the future, you ought to feel afraid. Suppressing fear prevents you from taking appropriate action and is therefore very dangerous. All it takes to integrate fear is to experience it in detail and include it in your celebration of your existence in that moment; if you do that, the rest will happen automatically. Integrated fear is enthusiastic preparation for the future. If you resist preparing for the future you will get fear. There is further discussion of the appropriate use of fear in Park VI of this book.

        Frustration and boredom are closely related to anger:

        Frustration is a result of resisting humility. If you try to do something and get the wrong result, you have a choice: be humbled or be frustrated. Humility means having a good attitude about your limitations, your humanness. Frustration means trying to insist that you don't have any limitations, even when you've just butted your head against one at 60 MPH! If you surrender to frustration you will get humility. If you resist humility you will get frustration.

        Another word for humility is "self-esteem." Some people interpret "high self-esteem" to mean having an exaggerated sense of self-importance or having a big ego. They think that they display high self-esteem when they look, to themselves and others, like they don't have any psychological problem left. This is obviously not a very good way to go about it, because it does not create a context of loving oneself unconditionally, and because it does not create any context for letting suppressed negativity surface in a gentle way. Humility means accepting fully that you are a human being and loving yourself for that. It eliminates feeling superior to people or inferior to people. It also facilitates a person in doing whatever work there is to do, rather than leaving it to someone else who is not "superior to the task." If there is any higher virtue than humility, we do not know what it is.

        By the way, the safest thing in the world to procrastinate is humbling yourself. Rest assured that it you put it off long enough the Universe will do the job for you!

        Boredom is a result of resisting emotional activation. It usually occurs when you procrastinate doing something that you know is going to bring up some emotion that you are avoiding. When you can't think of anything better to do, but you still refuse to do the thing you are avoiding, you get bored. Next time you're bored, notice what emotion is really right below the surface and plunge into it! You won't be bored for long and you'll get your work done too! Surrender to boredom and you'll always get activation. Resist activation and you'll always get boredom. Boredom is an extremely good thing to integrate. People are often at their most destructive when they are driven by suppressing boredom. Remember that our emotions exist for our pleasure and convenience. INTEGRATION WITHOUT USING ANY TECHNIQUES

        In normal day-to-day living, people do occasionally integrate without knowing anything about it. The best example of this is that most adolescents make their parents wrong for all kinds of things; when adolescents grow up and start dealing with adult situations, they gradually make their parents less and less wrong. Whenever they stop making their parents wrong for something they get massive integration with all the benefits usually associated with integration. Unfortunately, most people who don't know any techniques for causing integration suppress a whole lot more than they integrate.

        By the way, if you are still making your parents wrong for some things, then you are very fortunate indeed! It means that no matter how wonderful your life is now, you can make it much better in a straightforward and relatively easy way. If you clear everything up with your parents, then you will also have cleared up most of the important stuff with yourself! In Part IV of this book you will find some suggestions for improving your relationship with your parents.

        [In the following, where Phil says "Rebirthing", I might say "whatever safely and effectively brings conscious awakening to the cells - & attendant systems at the cellular level - physically via breath (and prana)" - chris pringer (having experienced some personal core-level insights via rebirthing therapy conscious breathing)]

        Rebirthing is the most efficient way to integrate a make-wrong duality because Rebirthing works at the level of physical patterns of energy. Your mind will fool you for years at a time but your body won't fool you at all. Your feelings are always right there just waiting for you to explore them and celebrate them. The breathing component of Rebirthing exists to facilitate you in feeling your suppressed feelings.

        You cannot have happiness in opposition to anything. Rebirthing, bit by bit, eliminates your specific oppositions.

        Integration always makes a person both happier and more powerful. Happier because it means the person is making less wrong in each moment. More powerful because it frees the person from compulsive, subconsciously motivated behavior.

        The message in all of this is actually very simple: You are alive in this moment whether you like it or not; if you resist life you will be miserable and weak; if you surrender willingly to the challenge of life you will be happy and free.

        Rebirthing is the advanced science of converting resistence to enthusiasm.


Note on the 'Abundance Set' of web pages at this site:

        If some folks were to see how I live and hear of my having written an essay on abundance, they would be sure that I was either a comedian, a hypocrite, or a blathering idiot. My response to that would be, "well, that's understandable laughing, given the usual definitions..." for abundance or success - primarily based on how one "understands" karma, belief patterns, and life decisions about what might be called ones priorities.

        In any case, I am happy to say that I am rich in many ways that are not associated with how the image of 'success' has been promoted in the media. And essentially that: further understanding of the definitions, values, and concepts regarding such terms as 'magnetism,' 'achievement,' 'attainment,' and 'true abundance' would be a valuable thing in this 'all about winning' era, and I hope to provide at least some clarification in the essays, "Attainment And Achievement -- The Alignment Of Beliefs, Desires, And Needs" (this page), "Whole Being Integration In Manifesting Abundance...", and "Achievement of Goals, Attainment, And the Role of Inner Work: A Flow Chart of the Human Psyche in Growth Facilitation and ...", referred to as "The Goal Chart", and which includes "Heart's Desire, Ideals, & Accomplishment" (Aug'11).

        The term 'karma' may also deserve some attention, and that is covered more extensively in the essay, "On Learning, Fairness, Truth, and Peace" at the Evolution Trends..." page, and in essay, "Victims, Compassion, & Responsibility -- Notes on The Emotional-Body, Denial of Pain, & 'Easy Answers' (Not!)", as well as in essay, "WHY PAIN? Notes on Pain, Awareness & Denial," Pertains to Physical and other levels - Aspects in Developing a Practical Approach with Compassion. You'll find many other references to essays at this site here, and here's where I toss in my 2nd disclaimer below (and some humor).

"Synthesis" Shirts !!!

Some have claimed that wearing a "Synthesis" shirt cured that groundless state of begging for extreme circumstances, just so they could locate the center of the universe!!!
Ok, not really, but some did say
it just made them feel good to wear it!

You can always find out for yourself via the "Synthesis" Shirts from Chalice Productions - where you can have yourself centered between mandalas silkscreened on both sides of a shirt! smile

This was one of my first mandalas - but my only shirt (for sale Wink) - There are still a few hundred left - and with quantity discounts, you can make me a deal!

  "Integration" by Krysta Gibson - about Common myths vs realities about psycho-spiritual integration; effective guidance about feelings and memories, 'living in the now', 'releasing' events and people, 'forgiving and forgetting' the past - for living the spiritual life fully and meaningfully. Originally published by Krista Gibson in "The New Times" of Seattle. Through the late 80's & most of the 90's, I always read Krysta's essays if I didn't have time to read anything else, and kept copies of various or her articles handy for my clients to take home with them. Still current...

"Integration" in the wholistic or therapeutic sense, implies that the information or skills (whether of the past, the good, the bad, remembered or forgotten) are re-organized and then learned from, in such a healthfully complete or "Integral" way (*Love-Wisdom* in application), that it is understood and used for the highest good. The process involves "Synergy" of many systems, and the word "Transformative" is often used to describe what often happens with the most destructive material - that which has been repressed or denied.

May'11-May'12: Addendum essays added with the goal of clarifying these topics as more easily understandable for *common sense* preventative maintenance application, as well as further completing the context and clarifying the dynamics and processes involved, including "Body Awareness and Communications, as Related to Body-Memory and Integration", "Muscle Q & A", "Adrenaline vs Endorphins...Brain Activity, Muscles and Tendons ...Aging" about adrenal response related to all the above (incl. trauma, long-term conditioning), "EQ, IQ, Emotional Integration, and a Synergetic Relationship", and" Insight Please". [Note: Keywords referring to, or related to, the phenomenon of body memory: somatic memory, tissue memory, muscle memory, somatic experience, somatic healing, somatic therapy, body-mind split, mind-body split]
