As Above So Below
Humankind’s inventions, especially those of technology, are expressions and manifestations of the mind’s capacity, power’s and actions in the subtle (dream) worlds. A phone in a dream therefore can be experienced and seen as a symbol or representation of that power and function of talking over a phone, representing a telepathic connection, an integral event – at a “mental distance” from others.
As consciousness expands and evolves our technologies, our discoveries reveal the powers and nature of the mind. Possibly, probably, as our inner evolution or consciousness expands and heightens and the mind’s abilities unfold – from the inner self – we are then able to perceive ways of creating the mind’s abilities in physical form, such as from the wired telegraph, to the wireless radio and wired telephones, and now cell phones and instant messaging.
In personal (consciousness) development activities, especially those of meditating and dreaming, or altering consciousness for inner experiences, one must be aware that emotional energies are collective and in universal (collective) streams, and that mental forces also have collective and archetypal (universal) aspects that press upon our minds night and day. We must learn to recognize what one might call “self-created” thoughts and mental images from “other-created” thoughts and images from other individuals or entities, or “group though forms” created by groups of like-minded people. “Group think” thoughts are collected and bound by an inner-resonance of affinity for each other (which we can call the collective mind).
In our daily thoughts, in our meditation, and in our dreams we must be able to decipher not only the meaning, or source, of our own mental creations, but filter out those coming into our minds that are not worthy harboring, or that are even toxic to us. We must learn to tune-out static group thought, not only in our daily lives from social media, radio and television, but in our dreaming and creative thinking – a collective “television”.
It has been said that 90 percent of total behavior (mental, emotive, physical) comes from subtle impulses (outside of us) we are not aware.
Some individuals as they grow and expand in meditation consciousness or dream consciousness hear words at times, phrases, sentences at times, or subtle impressions on the mind of guidance from the inner worlds. When one begins to experiences such things, when not from the soul or "inner-guardians" of Light, it is like a radio tuner that is not refined enough to filter out all the thought forms around one, and can be a sign of expansion of consciousness; but one also with risks. (There are clinical manifestations of such phenomenon related to mental health; but that is a topic or theme for another time and possibly a post).
One must learn to hear the "voice of silence" (that of the higher inner self or soul) and accurately recognize it: and recognize other inner guiding-light sources. Inner contact and communication can be from those in the inner worlds who are "of good will; from some who are mischievous; and some harmful by their intent and outcome, if followed.
One can think of it or envision it this way. As above, so below!
Our cell phone receives calls through a universe of energy waves from satellites and tower stations all around us. We at times get calls from loved ones and friends. Other times a wrong phone number call from a neutral “party”. Other times we receive nuisance calls from those trying to sell us something.
Also, purely trickster calls or pranks!
Then, there are at times callers attempting to con us into some action or a false purchase, taking away from us our wealth, small or large. We may even at times receive hostile phone calls from someone angry at us for some reason we may or may not know why. (That type of call can even be a wrong number call).
All these types of physical manifestations of communication by a wired phone or a cell phone have mental telepathic correspondences.
We must learn to sense one type from another, and filter out when and if we can those that are not truly speaking from the soul, from our loved ones living in the Light above and below. If we cannot filter out or block the unwanted calls of the inner mind, we need to hang up immediately when they arrive (or first ring our bell).
In my next blog post, I may expand upon this theme, and/or I will talk about flying dreams and flying dream machines, and the mind’s development of the our world's evolving manifestation of electric cars, electric-flying cars and taxis, and other such “as above, so below” phenomenon. We will look at how these relate to lucid dreaming, subtle-body flying dreams and mass transportation dreams such as trains, planes, and buses, etc.
