Part 1: Foundations of Thought
13 Lectures 11:48

Our first topic is elements. When we talk about creative building blocks we have to lay a foundation. So let there be a universal energy that’s infinite. In other words, it doesn’t matter if we plant the idea of a new home in our minds or a seed of a tree into nature’s soil, whatever we impress upon it will take form if properly cared for. It’s what allows all phenomena to arise in our physical world. It’s like a white canvas on which we use to paint our imagination, or a pond that forms ripples on the surface when we throw rocks into it.

Then there’s the unconscious mind, which is associated with our hearts. The heart is the source of our emotions.

Next is the conscious mind, which we link to the brain. This is where we reason and evaluate our experience with the intellect. It’s also where we direct our attention with focus.

The unconscious mind is connected with our intuition and the conscious mind is where we project the details of our imagination.

Next are thoughts and feelings which we impress upon our mind like rocks thrown into the pond. The combination of these two ingredients inspire actions, or ripples, that generate feedback from the outside world through our senses.

Preview 01:17

Now let’s look at the cause and effect of thought.

First think of the brain — or the conscious mind — as if it were sitting in a prism. In a reactive state, the five senses throw us out of balance and our judgement is clouded because our emotions overtake us and thinking tilts to one of our two hemispheres.

At the other end of the prism, the energy is impressed with the inputs from our outside world, and we react in our thoughts, feelings and actions.

Preview 00:28

Next let’s see what happens in a creative state.

Instead of allowing the five senses to dictate our behavior, we imagine different results and use the infinite energy to impress our ideal thoughts and feelings upon it and act as if our dream was already true.

By reversing the order, we make use of both hemispheres and receive feedback from the outside world through our senses that suggests we’re doing things differently than before. This is when things like synchronicity and so-called “coincidence” come into our awareness. However, it’s important to note that events are never random or accidental, but instead the outcome of natural law. In other words, if we plant a seed in the ground and water it, the tree will eventually break through the surface and show itself in the physical world.

Preview 00:47

Consciousness describes whether the mind, and more particularly the brain, is perceiving the world in a state of duality or oneness.

A dual mind has fragmented consciousness. It ignores the lawfulness of cause and effect and clings to changing forms with the hope that they remain the same forever. It drifts away from reality and reinforces a fundamental lie that polarities are mutually exclusive. Let the triangle represent birth, the line is life, and the circle is death. And so, we grow and then decay. The dual mind projects the illusion of a fearful future and suffers because of it. cognition

A oneness mind has unified consciousness. It honors the lawfulness of cause and effect and releases the attachment to changing forms with the understanding that no thing is permanent. It moves closer towards reality and grasps a fundamental truth that polarities must coexist. Because energy is neither created nor destroyed, there is no birth or death, but instead an expansion and contraction of energy. So for example, the seed that expands into a tree, bears its fruits, then contracts back into the earth for new crops to grow. Think of the breath as another example; there is an inhale and exhale and they are continuous. The oneness mind sits in perfect balance at the meeting point of infinity, where everything is interconnected and the in-breath changes to an out-breath, or vice versa.

Consciousness: Brain | Duality vs. Oneness

When the mind observes in a state of duality, positive and negative thoughts are assigned shallow, extroverted language and begin with reactive assumptions like:

“This is…”

  • White / Black
  • Good / Bad
  • Young / Old
  • Smart / Dumb
  • Pretty / Ugly
  • Easy / Hard
Consciousness: Brain | Duality | Shallow

However, when the mind observes in a state of oneness, positive and negative thoughts are assigned deep, introverted language. • Notice how the infinity and yin-yang symbols converge to imply the unity of polarities.

Now instead of making reactive assumptions, the mind raises creative questions like:

“Am I being…?”

  • Open-Minded / Close-Minded
  • Courageous / Conforming
  • Responsive / Reactive
  • Definite / Doubtful
  • Loving / Fearful
  • Calm / Edgy
Consciousness: Brain | Oneness | Deep

Paradigms are habits of thinking, feeling and acting.

Let the target represent your dream, and the line leading up to it is the razor’s edge path required to realize the dream.

When our paradigm is negative, we look for every reason why we can’t achieve what we want. As a result, we fall into a mind-made prison. Now let the circles represent ignorance, the vertical lines are decay, and the flat lines at the bottom are illusions. So ignorance decays into an illusion. For the victim, this experience feels too real to overcome.

However, to counter the illusion and break out of prison, we must decide to elevate our consciousness and increase our awareness. So, let the squares represent knowledge, the vertical lines are growth, and the flat lines are truth — in other words, the application of knowledge allows us to grow and come into truth. Notice how the vertical line of decay is solid, but it’s corresponding counterpart of growth is divided. This is because the path leading to our dream is less convincing than the illusions’ influence on our minds. For the victor, belief inspires greater action and drives the mind into a transition phase or creative zone.

When we drop into this mental realm of possibility, our mind goes through a paradigm shift and we connect with the razor’s edge path. As we move forward,it’s the knowledge we apply with faith that leads us out of prison and into freedom. The illusion falls away as an afterthought when we approach the point of manifestation.

From left to right you see that the knowledge, which grows into truth, builds in strength, as the ignorance, which decays into an illusion, dissipates. The opposite is true when we reverse the direction. This process sits on a continuum, so the mind can tilt into one of these two paradigms at any moment.

Paradigms: Prison vs. Freedom

Now let’s illustrate the direct link between mind and nature.

First, notice how the conscious mind sits above the surface, while the unconscious mind is underneath it. Whenever an idea manifests in our physical world, it’s first planted below in the unconscious mind, which, as we mentioned earlier, is correlated with the heart. Whenever you imagine your desires think of seeds planted in the unconscious mind.

A seed which is planted, cultivated and cared for moves through a transition phase and undergoes a paradigm shift as it forms into a tree. Our desires work exactly the same way, but in the case of mind, they’re ideas that move through a creative zone — the parallel state of nature’s transition phase — as they form into facts on the physical plane where the conscious mind perceives.

So let’s say you want to be a sought-after magician or a famous photographer, First, you must use your conscious mind to imagine yourself in the midst of the experience, then plant the desire in your unconscious mind. And as you align your thoughts, feelings and actions with the desire, the result comes into form just as if you were a farmer tending faithfully to his crops.

Or you want to form a new relationship or improve an existing one. Again, you must persistently imagine, project then emotionalize the experience before expecting it to show up in your physical reality.

Paradigms: Mind vs. Nature

Now let’s isolate the transition phase to show how nature operates.

First, what are the elements that contribute to a seed’s transformation into a tree?

  • Environment
  • Information
  • Food
  • Relationships
  • Weather

Next, what is it that activates these elements to serve the pattern plan of the growth process?

Well, like all energy, the seed emits a specific vibrational frequency and for every action there’s an equal and opposite reaction, so this energetic output sets off a magnetic force that pulls in the appropriate resources.

Time is the other ingredient that contributes to the growth process, and the two together draw and sustain the energy of these five elements to bring the seed into full expression.

Paradigms: Transition Phase | Nature

Again, just as there’s a transition phase for nature, there’s a creative zone equivalent for the mind. But although time is relevant in both cases, it’s secondary in the mind since one can’t simply daydream and hope a desire will manifest without effort.

In other words, when a dream is planted as a desire in the unconscious, the five elements are only activated with the intelligent use of our thoughts, feelings and actions. And if attention and focus is maintained with persistence and faith, the dream must come true just as a seed grows to bare its fruit.

Paradigms: Creative Zone | Mind

And here is a visual summary of the two.

Take note that when a seed is inherently toxic, it will produce a poisonous plant, but when the seed is healthy, it will produce a medicinal one. This is also the case with a dream; if a dream is inherently toxic, it might produce a dictator, but when the dream is healthy, it might produce a visionary. We would attribute this concept to the law that like causes always produce like effects.

Paradigms: Transition Phase vs. Creative Zone

To be in a state of freedom means we’re moving in a positive direction towards a definite purpose while our minds are immersed in a creative zone.

In this state we imagine what we desire with the conscious brain, then plant the seed in the unconscious heart. Notice how the heart is situated on the left while the brain is on the right.

So if we have an intention to become happier, for example, we must persistently project and emotionalize the experience in a mind saturated with positive energy, and the desired state will reveal itself through our thoughts, feelings and actions. As we maintain this elevated vibrational frequency, we can imagine greater benefits and manifest them by submitting ourselves to the natural laws of growth.

  • So, if you want more wealth, consistently think, feel and act as if it were already true in your experience.
  • If you want recognition for your efforts, project and emotionalize the possession of the accolade.
  • If you want more energy, think, feel and act like the person you envision yourself to be.
  • And if you want more adventure, see yourself in the midst of the experience by applying yourself in the present moment.
Paradigms: Freedom | Creative Zone

When our mind is saturated with negativity, the creative process is inverted and we imprison ourselves in a reactive zone. In this state we produce undesirable results because we lack focus, fail to plan and emotionalize our past and project it into the future.

Knowledge is swapped for ignorance and the reactive effects follow. And again, notice how the heart is now on the right while the brain is on the left.

Paradigms: Prison | Reactive Zone
Part 2: Transmutation of Thought
26 Lectures 16:24

Now we move into the transmutation of thought. Thought is a unit of mental energy and energy is neither created nor destroyed. And so, the act of transmuting thoughts is an alchemical process where we use our minds to rework their characteristics from negative to positive, positive to affirmative, or affirmative to absolute.

Since everything is energy at a basic level, we could also highlight the human body in this discussion. As humans, we are a mass of molecules in a high speed of vibration. When the body passes, the animating energy simply changes form while the organs and other material functions break down and blend with the soil of the planet — nothing is gained or lost in the process.


With transmutation it’s valuable for us to consider the positive and negative types of characteristics that make up thought. First we’ll discuss the physical level and highlight energetic appearances.

Just as we attributed the growth of a tree or a dream to the environment, information, food, relationships and weather, we can also observe how these five elements contribute to the surface level expression of our thoughts.

So if someone appears unpresentable, it’s because these five elements are:

  • Cluttered
  • Useless
  • Unhealthy
  • Destructive
  • Unfavorable

And if someone appears presentable, it’s because the elements are:

  • Clean
  • Useful
  • Healthy
  • Constructive
  • Favorable
Characteristics: Negative vs. Positive | Physical

When we move into the emotional level of thought, we’re talking about energetic tones.

So if someone feels asleep, it’s because these elements are:

  • Anxious
  • Dulled
  • Lethargic
  • Demoralized
  • Depressed

And if someone feels awake, it’s because the elements are:

  • Peaceful
  • Stimulated
  • Energized
  • Inspired
  • Invigorated
Characteristics: Negative vs. Positive | Emotional

Finally, we move into the mental level of thought where we’re talking about energetic states.

So if someone is close-minded, it’s because these elements are:

  • Confused
  • Irrelevant
  • Chaotic
  • Competitive
  • Unsupportive

And if someone is open-minded, it’s because the elements are:

  • Methodical
  • Applicable
  • Assimilative
  • Collaborative
  • Supportive
Characteristics: Negative vs. Positive | Mental

And here’s a summary of the characteristics we just went over.

Characteristics: Negative vs. Positive | Summary

When we talk about the cultivation of thought, a valuable question we can ask ourselves is, “What are we farming in the garden of our minds?”

Again, let the triangle represent the idea of birth and the circle represent death, and the line in-between is life. Underneath the surface is our unconscious minds, and on the surface, our conscious minds.

Next let’s divide the periods of life into metaphorical plots of land that make up a 100-year cycle. Each plot is a 25-year period, but you could also truncate the cycle into a single year with 3-month seasons.

Now as we’ve outlined, there are five elements that contribute to the quality of our experience. As we sew this first plot, let the 25 seeds represent 21,900,000 thoughts, which is the equivalent of 60,000 thoughts a day over the course of one year. All of these five elements make up the conversations we hold in our mind.

So, in the first quarter of reaping, we’re inundated with the status quo, behaving the way we were taught to think is either good or bad. Next, in the second quarter of sewing, we’ve become aware of the truth that we’re the ones to determine the path we create for ourselves and we make the decision to dig up the unwanted roots and plant new seeds. In the third quarter we reap the good harvest we’ve sewn and move forward into the future understanding that the quality of our lives is dictated by the energetic vibration of the seeds we plant in the plots of our unconscious minds. Then in the final stage of our evolution, we reject — but don’t resist — any unwanted thoughts, no matter how real they may appear on the surface, because we know that all outward expressions have their causes in the minds of man.

Cultivation: Farming | Sewing vs. Reaping

Whatever we do repeatedly over time is going to dictate the trajectory of our lives.

So if we commit to the process of personal transformation and persist in thinking positively, we cultivate awareness, become self-correcting, and generate self-confidence from our experiences.

But if we resist the process and surrender to thinking negatively, we forfeit awareness, become self-degrading, and generate self-pity from our experiences.

Preview 00:30

How then do we transform and grow? Transmute our negative thoughts into critical thoughts and study our own behavior over time.

To adjust our trajectories and ensure a positive life, we must introduce and apply knowledge, tools and resources that lead to such growth, like:

  • Books / Audiobooks / Home-Study Programs
  • Religious Texts / Houses of Worship
  • Seminars / Workshops / Retreats
  • Writing / Therapy / Counseling
  • Teachers / Mentors / Coaches
  • Breathing / Meditation / Yoga
  • Martial Arts / Exercise
  • Mastermind Groups
  • And more, of course.

These all can be used to evaluate different areas of our lives like:

  • Health
  • Wealth
  • Religion
  • Parenting
  • Motivation
  • Spirituality
  • Relationships
  • Communication
  • And more, of course.
Cultivation: How-To | Transform & Grow

Now that we’ve discussed converting our negative thoughts into critical thoughts, let’s show what the process of transmutation looks like with some of the tools we’ve outlined.

First let’s illustrate the cause and effect of dysfunction.

As we’ve mentioned, when the mind overreacts to outside stimuli, the conscious mind tilts to one hemisphere and we’re knocked off-balance in our thinking. An example of this is when a driver unintentionally cuts you off and you take it personally. In the positive sense, let’s say you win the lottery but end up in debt.

So let the light circles represent inactive tools. When the energy of fear — in these and other forms — hits the prism of our conscious minds, we react in thought and project a very narrow vision of reality because at every level we’re looking through the lens of fear. The energetic vibration of this experience could be called “darkness.”

Preview 00:52

Now let’s move into a functional state of mind where we tap into our second hemisphere and broaden our vision.

So first we introduce meditation.

With the cultivation of self-love we strengthen the use of our brain and construct a mental wall between the outside stimuli and the sacred plot of our mind.

Now when the rigid, fearful and invasive energy reaches our awareness, we convert it by reframing our conscious thoughts. This act of mental discipline opens our channel of compassion and the outflow of love transmutes the illusion of darkness into light.

On the other side of the prism, we add a new dimension to our perception and the initial output of energy is broken down from collapsed particles into waves.

Conversion: Functional | 2 Hemispheres | Broad (Meditation)

Now let’s introduce writing into our daily practice. In the affirmative sense, writing engages our creative minds where we project ourselves into dream-like futures with goals that inspire and motivate us. In the constructive sense, we allow ourselves to face our fears and forgive ourselves and others for the mistakes we’ve made, thereby releasing guilt, grievances, anger, and all other toxic emotions.

Conversion: Functional | 2 Hemispheres | Broad (Writing)

Yoga is another extremely helpful tool. With it we can observe the ever-present stream of breathing and cause our outward exercise to fold into a deeper, introspective analysis of our bodies and minds.

Conversion: Functional | 2 Hemispheres | Broad (Yoga)

Martial Arts are another highly beneficial practice that help us reshape our self-image and cultivate respect, integrity, discipline, humility and other noble virtues.

Conversion: Functional | 2 Hemispheres | Broad (Martial Arts)

Finally, I’ve placed food at the end of this process because it is one of the most overlooked but undermining elements of our personal transformation. The food we eat directly affects the energetic state of our bodies and when we consume cooked and processed foods with low nutritional value, we slow down the body’s energy levels. But when we eat raw and organic foods with high nutritional value, we speed up the body’s energy levels.

Now that we’ve incorporated all of these tools, let’s wrap up this section by returning back to our previous examples. So instead of allowing the reactive anger to seize control of your conscious mind, you reframe the car incident to consider the other driver’s mental-emotional state — maybe a relative just passed away and he was overtaken by the news. Or, instead of jumping the gun and buying five new sports cars, you consult with a financial advisor who handles lottery winners to ensure the money is budgeted wisely.

Conversion: Functional | 2 Hemispheres | Broad (Health Food)

Next we’ll discuss the idea of imbalanced vs. balanced energy.

First, let’s clarify what we mean by energy and how it relates to thought. Ultimately, when anything reaches our minds, we interpret the feedback with the language of thought, which can be words and/or images developed through our learning and experience.

With an “unprotected” mind, the energy that reaches us is rigid, dark and elusive in nature. In other words, it will do whatever it can to undermine and influence our thoughts in an undesirable way. This causes us to feel negatively and project fear into our future.

However, when we’ve disciplined ourselves to implement tools into our mental processes, the energy that reaches us no longer throws us out of balance, but instead stabilizes us. It is flexible, light and direct in nature and will be welcomed into our awareness and influence our thoughts in a desirable way. This causes us to feel positively and project love into our future.

Conversion: Energy | Imbalanced vs Balanced

We can compare this phenomena to the symmetry of a lens. When we are using both hemispheres of our brain, we are in balance, just like the lens.

Conversion: Energy | Lens Balanced | Symmetry

As mentioned before, the balance of this energy can be related to the intangible sensation and vibration of love.

When we think about this in the context of a recipe or finished product, the ingredients or raw materials we put in are:

  • Gentle
  • Virtuous
  • Clean
  • Malleable
  • Direct
  • Linear

Causing our thoughts to be:

  • Productive
  • Honest
  • Refined
  • Adaptive
  • Clear
  • Efficient
Conversion: Energy | Balanced | Love

Now with energy that is imbalanced, we can compare it to a lens that is lop-sided or asymmetrical. When the mind is in this state, it makes use of only one hemisphere.

Conversion: Energy | Lens Imbalanced | Asymmetry

The imbalance of this energy can be related to the intangible sensation and vibration of fear.

Again, when we think about this in the context of a recipe or finished product, the ingredients or raw materials we put in are:

  • Invasive
  • Corrupt
  • Gross
  • Rigid
  • Indirect
  • Segregated

Causing our thoughts to be:

  • Destructive
  • Dishonest
  • Unrefined
  • Brittle
  • Unclear
  • Inefficient
Conversion: Energy | Imbalanced | Fear

Now if our thoughts are units of mental energy, then this energy must be in a state of vibration. Thought vibrations are categorized in the form of brain wave frequencies — gamma, beta, alpha, theta and delta. Most people expend their energy in beta and alpha — the surface of life — never finding time to cultivate the necessary skills to invest their energy and “ride” gamma, theta and delta brain waves for creative, regenerative and transformative purposes.

To briefly go over the five frequencies:

Gamma is the highest waking state, where total consciousness occurs.

  • Dysfunctional minds are not enhanced by this frequency, while
  • Functional minds are quickened and transcended by it.

Beta is the normal waking state, where logic and reasoning occur. In this frequency:

  • Dysfunctional minds are fixed in a hyper-stressful alertness, while
  • Functionalminds are flexible in a calm and stable awareness.

Alpha is the deep relaxing state, where learning and concentration occur. In this frequency:

  • Dysfunctional minds absorb television, video games and other hypnotizing channels, while
  • Functional minds focus on learning, problem solving and other productive processes.

Theta is the light sleeping state, where dreaming and creative visualization occur. In this frequency:

  • Dysfunctional minds fall into REM sleep out of fatigue, while
  • Functional minds tap into vivid insight with meditation.

Delta is the deep sleeping state, where total unconsciousness occurs. In this frequency:

  • Dysfunctional minds regurgitate unconscious programming, while
  • Functional minds rewire unconscious programming.
Conversion: Brain Waves | Frequency

To illustrate the concept of incoherence vs. coherence, think of five drummers in a room. If they’re all in their own world, playing their own beat, the rhythm is muddled and difficult to follow, which we would call incoherent. However, if a specific song is introduced, the drummers come into a unified beat, and the rhythm is clear and easy to follow, which we would call coherent.

Conversion: Rhythm | Incoherence vs. Coherence

When our brain waves are in an incoherent state, our perspective is limited, causing our thoughts to be:

  • Negative
  • Disorderly
  • Disorganized
  • Pessimistic
  • Forceful
  • Discordant
Conversion: Rhythm | Brain Waves | Incoherence

When our brain waves are in a coherent state, our perspective is unlimited, causing our thoughts to be:

  • Positive
  • Orderly
  • Organized
  • Optimistic
  • Peaceful
  • Harmonious
Conversion: Rhythm | Brain Waves | Coherence

Now if we’re talking about habits of thought, let us describe them as robotic or dynamic.

Robotic habits stiffen our way of thinking. With a robotic mind, there is nothing but the box to think from; it is inflexible and disengaged as it defends illusions to resist change. Generally, for the robotic thinker, truth must come from an institution or a highly educated professional. In other words, source outweighs substance.

Dynamic habits soften our way of thinking. With a dynamic mind, there is no box because mind is limitless; it is flexible and engaged as it releases illusions to embrace change. Generally, for the dynamic thinker, truth can come from a peddler on the street or a foreigner who speaks broken English. In other words, substance outweighs source.

Conversion: Habits | Robotic vs. Dynamic

When our nature is robotic, our behavior is passive, causing our thoughts to be:

  • Unquestioning
  • Conventional
  • Predictable
  • Traditional
  • Attached
  • Lazy
Conversion: Habits | Nature | Robotic

When our nature is dynamic, our behavior is active, causing our thoughts to be:

  • Questioning
  • Unconventional
  • Unpredictable
  • Unorthodox
  • Unattached
  • Industrious
Conversion: Habits | Nature | Dynamic
Part 3: Expression of Thought
17 Lectures 13:42

In this last part, when we talk of expression of thought, it is the power of our unconscious aversions and desires that come forth in our experience. The goal is to uproot all that makes us fear and redirect this attention towards that which we love.


In this model we learn why people wallow in self-defeat while others build up self-reliance.

Most fall prey to perceived setbacks and react with feelings of discouragement, frustration and dissatisfaction. In order to move beyond them however, knowledge must be introduced into our thinking. But not for the sake of accumulating information because knowledge on its own is worthless. Think of knowledge like dark greens filled with vitamins, minerals and nutrients — in order for the body to absorb them, we chew and digest the fibers. Our minds work in the same way — to understand something, we must study and apply what we learn.

In fact, this is where the next wave of people trap themselves — these are the derelict Ph.D.s who walk the streets professing their intelligence but never exercise their minds to produce results. They’re idol worshippers just like the greedy “rich” who stockpile paper bills. But life is a flow — a cycle — and knowledge, just like money, is most useful when in motion, so instead of stagnating, we must breath application into our resources. Those who understand this seize the joy that comes from growing and develop new models for living with a strong sense of courage, confidence and creativity.

The next time challenges reach our conscious minds, we perceive them as opportunities to grow and cultivate wisdom. The idea is to transcend the surface of self-development and move into a deeper level of awareness and understanding where everything leads to the rewards of self-reliance.

Emergence: Self-Defeat vs. Self-Reliance

As we discuss the emergence of thought, it’s also important to understand the value of projection.

Let the hollow circle represent a mind that sees the glass half empty. It gives the outside world power to shepherd its thoughts towards emptiness and dead ends. Gossip, celebrity news, media, etc. — these all lead to a black hole of meaningless mind activity, causing it to move in an aimless direction.

However, let us introduce a dream into the picture and the mind begins to move in a purposeful direction. But, it’s not as simple as it sounds, because the mind has to break up fearful thought processes that hold it back from realizing the dream. And so, the dream must be reinforced over and over to inspire the mind to elevate its thinking and raise the level of awareness from which it operates. Eventually, the dream is realized when all thoughts are completely transmuted into positive, free-flowing energetic sources of inspiration.

Think of emotions as energy which waters the seeds of our dreams and causes them to grow.

Now let’s illustrate the outcome or effects of thought. First, we show how two hemispheres attract positive results into our awareness.

Let’s use the desire for a relationship as an example. In order to attract the perfect mate, the heart must feel the presence of the mate in the now moment and send the signal to the brain where the brain transmits the message through the universal ether. The sustained thought wave reaches the mate who thinks along the same vibrational frequency and when the two conscious minds connect, the signals are delivered back to their unconscious hearts to let them know they’re in the presence of someone special.

This can be applied for any other desires you wish to realize by “matching” their energetic state of vibration with your projected emotions.

Effects: Attraction | 2 Hemispheres | Positive

When we are only using one hemisphere, the attraction is off-balance and we pull negative results into our awareness.

Effects: Attraction | 1 Hemisphere | Negative

Now let’s illustrate what happens with attraction when thought is driven by the power of projected emotions.

Let these ideas come from three different people. The person at the bottom is projecting an idea with an emotional amplitude of one unit. The next is thinking on a higher level and projecting an idea with an emotional amplitude of two units. Finally, the third is thinking outside of the comfort zone and projecting an idea with an emotional amplitude of five units.

If the power from the clarity of the projection and frequency of the emotion is equal for all three people over a sustained period of time, when we chart their paths, we see that they all attract the necessary energy to hatch their ideas.

  • Notice how the one-unit thinker is pursuing a safe bet and moving on a linear path, jumping from 1 to 2 to 3 to 4 to 5.
  • Next, the two-unit thinker is moving on an exponential path but starts at only a marginally greater amplitude, jumping from 2 to 4 to 8 to 16 to 32. We’d say this is a “rational goal.”
  • Finally, the five-unit thinker is elevating the amplitude of the idea to an unfamiliar level where there are no reference points to start from, but because the clarity of the projection and frequency of emotion are sustained, the power grows exponentially over time, jumping from 5 to 10 to 20 to 40 to 80. We’d say this person is pursuing an “irrational dream.”

So if we are experiencing undesirable effects in our external world, it’s because we’re only making use of one hemisphere and our attention is dissipated.

As we discussed earlier, when there is no focus for us to direct our mind towards, we fall into depression, confusion and aimlessness, and at every level of our mental-emotional state our energetic vibration can be described as “darkness.”

Effects: Undesirable | 1 Hemisphere | Dissipated

Now when we move away from undesirable effects towards desirable ones, we flex our second hemisphere and focus our attention. So what happens to the thought energy?

First we create room in our minds by unhooking our attention from things, people, activities, and behaviors that sap our energy and hold us back. Then we focus light energy towards our heart’s dream desire.

Some of these distractions might include:

  • Unhealthy food that leads to indigestion and a cloudy mind.
  • Gossip that leads to emotions of guilt, anger, resentment and revenge.
  • Mindless shopping, social media and other quick-fix pleasure stimulants.
  • Social engagements that lead to the consumption of alcohol, drugs and gratuitous sex.
  • Email newsletters, tabloid magazine subscriptions and other seductive forms of distraction.
  • Self-aggrandizing entertainment that leads to emptiness, competition and prideful behavior.
  • Fear-based media that talks of war, economic distress, and other issues not within our immediate control.
Effects: Desirable | 2 Hemispheres | Focused (Dream)

Next, the dream becomes an intention and we intensify the focus of our efforts by unhooking more of our attention from diversions while turning inward towards the desire.

Effects: Desirable | 2 Hemispheres | Focused (Intention)

Then, we increase our focus as the intention is backed by a tangible goal that we can work towards.

Effects: Desirable | 2 Hemispheres | Focused (Goal)

The goal then transforms into a vision which inspires greater action and taps a deeper source of emotional energy for us to channel.

Effects: Desirable | 2 Hemispheres | Focused (Vision)

Finally the vision becomes a purpose, which guides our every thought, feeling and action. At this stage the mind is free from all discordant vibrational frequencies and is completely saturated with positive energy.

Effects: Desirable | 2 Hemispheres | Focused (Purpose)

Now that we’ve transformed our minds to focus solely on our dreams, let’s look at the process of unfoldment.

In this next step we “turn the tables” and channel the emotional desires of our hearts towards the unconventional projections in our brain. Pretend that the lens is the equivalent of a camera and whatever arises in the emotional body must find expression on the physical plane through our thoughts, feelings and actions.

Our heart has a magnetic charge and our brain has an electric charge. When the lens takes a snapshot of the electro-magnetic signature, it draws like energy into our awareness for us to arrange and make way for the desired projections to show up in our world. The resulting energetic expression can be depicted in a visual representation like this. Notice the dimensionality, orderliness and wave-like effects.

On the opposite side, when we allow the conventional paradigms of life to pull away our attention and focus, the resulting expression is one-dimensional, disorderly and rigid in nature. In our formative years especially, these influences habitually trigger our emotions and projections.

Now if you’re ready to affect change in your own life, here are the deceptively simple steps to manifesting your dreams:

  • Write out your dream world in detail.
  • Drive your emotions up to your dreams.
  • Maintain focus until results show up on the physical plane through your actions.
Effects: Unfoldment | Unconventional vs. Conventional

Now let’s reflect back on all the models we discussed to tie up this presentation.

In a world outside of time and space, this is the path of evolution. However, while we occupy these bodies, we’ll forever encounter the effects of ignorance. But, if we can step out with courage on our foundation of mental resources, we can transform the power of our minds and realize our dreams.

Again, notice that on the left side of our dream, growth is a broken, indefinite line, while decay is a definite one. When we move into action with belief, the paradigm shifts and we advance with faith supported by pillars of applied knowledge while the illusion dissipates. As we charge deeper into the void of creation, we intensify our faith and elevate our consciousness by increasing our awareness of the truth.

Finally, we come into freedom and the realization of our dream, which is represented by the black box on the right. In this mental space, we discover that the path we took was necessary and that all the steps were preparing us for the reward.

Conclusions: Evolution | Life

Now let’s look at devolution, which leads to death.

In this model, the dream never reaches an elevated state in our consciousness because we haven’t exercised the use of any mental tools, nor have we introduced knowledge into our thinking upon which we might grow through application. As a result, our thought energy is dissipated and we fall into the state of self-defeat.

Then, as we project all the reasons why we can’t realize our dreams, they eventually become crystallized hardened facts in our minds, and we faithfully become imprisoned by our own beliefs with freedom seemingly beyond our grasp.

Conclusions: Devolution | Death

Conclusions: Love vs. Fear

Finally, I just want to reiterate that it’s my mission to help people understand their infinite potential through the application of thought.

My hope is that you honor your dreams, no matter how unconventional they may be, and dare to imagine they exist in your present mental-emotional reality.

This process takes persistence — and you may be tempted to give up — but beyond your last perceived setback is the opportunity for growth, wisdom and success. Just remind yourself, “If they could do it, I can too.”

Remember, like a seed, the dream must grow. So see yourself with all the good you desire and expect it to come into form as you water, cultivate and care for it with your thoughts, feelings and actions.
