Intent is exertion of will upon stubbornness. When stubbornness exists, despite all good intentions to change, it is the exertion of will that will finally bring about the desired effect. Intend with a good dose of will and your desired change will surely begin making its mark upon your life. Calmly and surely know in your mind that this is true and immediately see the results.
The science of hypnotism has provided us with utilitarian knowledge of the distinctions between, and synergistic possibilities of, our bicameral mind.
The objective mind is the rational mind of everyday life, essentially the ego. The salient feature of the ego is its ability to exercise free will. Despite all the advice of others, its own prior experiences, or strong instinctive warnings, the ego can change course in a heartbeat and simply do what it wants. Regardless of consequence, the objective mind is free to make its own decisions.
The subjective mind is the subconscious mind. In contrast to the objective mind, the subjective mind can only operate via suggestion. A famous example of its operations would be the medically intuitive readings of Edgar Cayce. Cayce would put himself into trance to gain access to his subjective mind and then a trusted associate would present him with the name of a person seeking treatment, asking what treatment would heal them.
Cayce would then channel an elaborate reading of medical treatments required to heal the patient. In his waking, objective mind state Cayce had no medical training or knowledge, yet his subjective mind could tap into the relevant vast knowledge stored in the etheric layer of the akashic records.
The subjective mind is the mind that links to the collective unconscious, has access to all evolutionary history, including past lives, and can remote view in many dimensions. The subjective mind is the home of imagination and creativity. When we doze off, we enter the subjective mind, where the objective mind-thoughts we’d just mulled over instantly generate into full-blown stories, replete with characters and images.
The subjective mind is the energy body proper that is propelled by thought in the form of suggestion. In a dream, we are fully in the subjective mind. If however, in the dream, the objective mind suddenly comes online and we become lucid and state the suggestion, “Fly, now!” Then off we go!
The objective mind and the subjective mind constantly work together. The things the objective mind says to itself are what the subjective mind generates in the body. If we tell ourselves that we are a failure, the subjective mind will generate that story and mood, even changing body chemistry to generate a depression!
As I have pointed out many times, the placebo effect of spontaneous cure from fatal disease is the result of the objective mind suggesting to the subjective mind that it has ingested the cure. The miracle worker subjective mind then refashions the physical body to be totally cured.
Of course, cure reversals can be just as rapid if the objective mind suddenly changes its belief or suggestion, such as: “Oh, it was just a placebo!” This tells the subjective mind to reverse course. Objective mind beliefs are powerful suggestions to the subjective mind.
For duration, the objective mind must either work hard, consciously, to overcome its blocking beliefs, or actually choose to incessantly state beliefs that it doesn’t fully believe yet, but knows will impact the subjective mind, regardless of belief.
A concentrated focus on overcoming blocking beliefs can lead us into recovering the fullness of ourselves, that which was previously lost in the shadow dimension of our being, as well as lead us to the High Spirit center of our Soul.
This contact with, and consolidation of, our total personality—our fuller individuation—can greatly enhance the effectiveness of the objective mind’s power of suggestion to the subconscious.
However, incessant repetition of suggestion, regardless of belief, will also impress itself upon the workings and creations of the subjective mind. Obviously, the fuller the individuation of self, the greater will be the duration of sought after changes, no matter which technique is used.
However, in spite of concerted effort, some changes may not hold, as influences from one’s deeper karmic intent in this life may require further experience with one’s current uncomfortable challenge.
Judge Hatch, who died in physical form, channeled the suggestion, from his soul body in the astral plane, to Elsa Barker in 1913 (Letters From the Afterlife), saying that humans, still in physical form, should strongly intend to fully optimize their objective minds after leaving physical life, to greatly enhance their experience in the afterlife.
He observed many souls in the afterlife and discovered that their preference for the subjective mind, the dreaming/creative mind, helped them to realize their unrealized, unlived dreams from their prior life in human form.
As wonderful as this dreamy, creative fulfillment is, he also observed how much further one could explore in their new plane of existence if they had full access to their volitionally suggestive, objective minds. So, he also suggested that we intend to remember our identity, the fullness of our life just lived, and maintain an active presence of our objective mind in our next chapter, in infinity.
This same guidance applies to all of us currently in human form. We are witnessing the impact of incessant suggestions from political leaders seriously manifesting in many citizens, as they take these suggestions as their marching orders.
To maintain and exercise our objective mind amidst these intense storms of suggestion, secures our freedom of will to choose our own suggestions to our subjective mind, now and going forward.
The best guidance is to practice conscious self-hypnosis, where our objective mind responsibly directs wise and positive growth-oriented suggestions to our subjective mind. This will deliver us to our greater individual fulfillment, as well as our entire world to its greater good.
Use the remote to turn on the gas heating stove. The remote beeps, the fire does not ignite. Try it a few more times. Finally change the batteries in the remote, as well as in the receiver in the stove. Press ‘on’ again, still no ignition.
Suddenly, a flash of intuition! There’s a thermostat in the stove! The room is too warm for it to allow ignition. Raise the temperature threshold. Press ‘on’. Ignition!
As with the stove, preset suggestions to the subconscious mind can nullify the manifestation of new suggestions. These pre-settings might originate in karmic spells or choices, genetic predispositions, postnatal conditioning via the socialization that has shaped one’s core belief systems, or unrecognized shadow dynamics generating their own balance/imbalance in the underworld of the personality.
Although our subconscious minds house the materials and facility for the realization of our creative magical intentions, our intent will be ineffective if prior beliefs or hidden agreements contradict our current suggestions. How do I know if I have hidden blocking beliefs?
Begin with this primary question: “Do I believe that anything is possible?”
Does the rational mind permit the possibility that a suggestion can create a reality? Is it willing to suspend its automatic critical judgment and submit that hypothesis to an unbiased experiment?
Spend a half hour a day, for a week, first getting physically relaxed, then stating out loud, or in writing, or both: “Anything is possible.” At idle times during the day, state it again: “Anything is possible.”
After a week, ask yourself this question: “Am I worthy to receive the change I seek?”
Perhaps, for example, you intend your body to be healed. You might discover that though you believe there could be miracles, you also hold the belief that it could never happen for you.
Again, suspend judgment, and write and state for a half hour each day, incessantly: “I am part of everything; I am worthy to receive the change I seek.”
If you notice the emergence of contrary thoughts, state: “I suspend judgment. I am part of everything, I am worthy to receive the change I seek.”
At the end of the week, having established the foundation to suggest a new belief, state directly your intention for change to your subconscious mind.
As before, state and/or write this intention for a half hour per day, as well as throughout the day, at idle moments, when it pops into your mind to do so. Continue to state this suggestion every day with no attachment to the outcome.
Like true scientists, we are not interested in influencing the outcome, even at the level of thoughts. Yes, a suggestion is a thought, but this is a thought experiment, limited to the impact of experimental suggestions. The outcome of the experiment is what is and what becomes, as a result of specific suggestions being recited.
Most likely, our intention will begin to manifest as we continue our practice. However, if we observe no change, we must re-explore the possibility that another preset blocking belief is interfering with our intent.
Perhaps, for instance, I discover, despite my suggestion to the contrary, that my rational mind is the holdout. Secretly, and tenaciously, it doesn’t believe in the spiritual power of words to generate physical happenings.
Assign the rational mind the dutiful task of stepping up to the objective requirement of a true scientific experimenter: NO PREJUDICE.
Include this in the suggestion, as in: “I suspend judgment. No prejudice. I am part of everything, I am worthy to receive the change I seek.” With this new suggestion in place, restart the practice with your intent for change.
Be present to every suggestion you state. Even if your attention strays, continue the rote exercise. The subconscious listens to all suggestions. Suggestions of longer duration make a definite impression. The subconscious does not think; it needs to be impressed upon, given its marching orders.
We are constantly feeding our subconscious daily suggestions through our incessant internal dialogue, which delivers us our familiar sense of self and our unchanging perspective. Deliberate periods of new focused suggestions can eventually override these habituated, stagnated manifestations.
Be careful what you read, listen to, and state inwardly and outwardly. Words and thoughts are suggestions that bombard the subconscious with suggestions that it constantly reacts to. Be extremely sensitive to the words you live by.
As with all psychic powers, hypnotic suggestion can be used for evil as well as positive intent. This is what is called, unfortunately, black magic. We needn’t look very far to see the impact of negative suggestions made by political figures or influencers on social media, and how they destructively impact our world.
The responsible use of suggestion is suggestion that aligns with the values of one’s High Self. The ego, in its highest integrity, must assure that suggestions to the subconscious are for the greater good of self and other. Narcissistic and destructive suggestions, though they may materially eventuate, carry inevitable karmic consequences.
Also consider, however, that shadow and light are both part of the same wholeness. Sometimes destruction is divinely necessary and needs to be lived.
Additionally, if one is dealing with a sub-personality that opposes an ego suggestion to the subconscious, this may undermine a stated suggestion. The work here is to first achieve consensus within the personality before proceeding with the practice of suggestion.
To access the true magic in our being we must be patient, persevering, observing, and light as a feather in the knowing that anything is possible and that we are a part of everything, worthy to receive the changes we seek.
Placebo is the physical creation of a belief. Based on the thoughtform of belief, a sugar pill can cure anything. Thought is the true creator of physical reality.
The most brilliant psychologists of the early 20th century created the advertising industry to control the behavior of consumers through suggestion. Suggestion is a thoughtform that mobilizes the creative potential of the subconscious mind to manifest its instructions: Drink Coke: “Things go better with Coke.” “It’s the real thing!”
Marketing psychologists discovered the power of hypnotism, the intentional use of the thoughtform of suggestion to change people’s behavior. Radio hosts like Alex Jones have demonstrated, definitively, the power of suggested conspiracy theories to impact people’s behavior.
Our current world is saturated with an unending flood of targeted messages competing for the critical mass of subscribers needed to generate a consensus reality. This translates to the current political rivalries that amass ‘war chests’, the money needed to reach the subconscious minds of the electorate, through advertising thoughtforms designed to control voting behaviors.
Every aspect of our mental and physical body is created and driven by thoughtforms. Thoughtforms are encoded in our DNA, the programs of our species and our ancestral memory. Thoughtforms are encoded in the archetypes that convert sensory input into form and meaning. These thoughtforms, as well as the internalized beliefs from our outer world socialization, are stored in the vast warehouse and factory of the subconscious mind. The conscious mind actually has the power to override even our DNA and our personal physical conditions.
Everyone has access to their subconscious minds. Our human potential can be maximized through gaining control of the thoughtforms that determine our being. One of the main blocks to accessing our greater potential is inertia. The current operating system of our being, however unpleasant or dysfunctional, runs automatically and allows us to coast through life with a minimum of effort.
Change requires energy and persistence. Programs like EST and The Forum seek to break through the ego’s inertia through group pressure, avoidance of shame, and heavily loaded homework assignments that preclude sleep. Once removed from these pressured environments, most people slip back to the default setting of inertia and business as usual.
The shamans of ancient Mexico introduced the power of Unbending Intent to assume full control of the state of their being. This is accomplished with an unwavering perseverance of presenting thoughtforms to the subconscious mind. Most important is the absolute certainty that what is sought will happen.
Besides the limiting impact of instinctive inertia upon change, the rational mind casts a powerfully constrictive web of doubt and blocking beliefs over the potential effectiveness of intent. My suggestion is to suspend judgment and perseveringly remind the self that your intent will be realized. Be patient, see what happens.
Start small. When someone tells me they never remember their dreams, I point out the impactful nature of that suggestion to the subconscious mind, to “Never remember dreams.” Reframe it before sleep: “Tonight I remember my dreams.” Everyone who perseveres with this statement of intent will at some point start to remember their dreams.
Once one discovers the power of unbending intent in small ways, they will begin to gain confidence in its true power to manifest. Wishing and hoping are replaced with knowing the true power of intent. Perseverance and patience is all it takes. As true as this is, the journey toward realizing intent activates complexes that must first be neutralized to clear the path to realization of the desired intent.
Complexes are most often traumatic experiences that are buried in the personal unconscious layer of the psyche and the physical body. Though they exist out of consciousness, they often exert a powerfully constrictive influence on one’s basic sense of security and worthiness.
They are the powerful programs in the subconscious that resist change, insisting on maintaining powerful defenses to avoid the emotions, sensations, and thoughts inherent in trauma. A thorough recapitulation that neutralizes these activated complexes clears the path to the new life of one’s coveted intent.
Another concern is the fact that intent can be exercised in hurtful and destructive ways, such as has been demonstrated in the thoughtforms expressed by Alex Jones, as regards the Sandy Hook massacre, for instance. We must have deep respect for the power of intent and exercise it responsibly, for the greater good of all.
Even at the level of our own thoughts (which are telepathically transmitted to a world of potentially receptive minds), we are broadcasting out intentions that impact the world, and ourselves. If our thoughts are constantly negative we draw only negativity to us. We suffer and the world suffers as well.
Let genuine compassion be the guiding thoughtform of our being, for our personal intents, in our thoughts of others, and for the world at large.
Refrain from negative talk and thoughts about yourself. Instead, accent the positive. Feed yourself new ideas that are nurturing and sustainable and little by little notice the changes taking place. It may seem as if negative changes take place quickly while positive ones take longer, but that’s just another old idea to drop, for things can change for the better in an instant. In a moment’s thought you can change your entire world.
