The purpose of this essay is to offer a new perspective on your unconscious mind, to redefine the conscious complex still held and promoted by many psychological scientists, namely, that your unconscious mind is the shadow of a “real” conscious mind, despite the fact that there now exists substantial evidence that the unconscious is not identifiably less flexible, complex, controlling, deliberative, or action-oriented than is its counterpart. This “conscious-centric” bias is due in part to the operational definition within cognitive psychology that equates unconscious with subliminal. An article in a special issue of American Psychologist (Loftus & Klinger, 1992) once asked the question, “Is the unconscious smart or dumb?” Because unconscious was treated as subliminal—or how smart people are when reacting to stimuli of which they are unaware (Greenwald, 1992)—the consensus reached by the contributors and issue editors was that the unconscious is actually rather dumb as it is capable only of highly routinized activities and it perceives little without the aid of consciousness (Loftus & Klinger, 1992).
Consider the following:
“And, of course, the Freudian model of the unconscious is still with us and continues to exert an influence over how many people think of “the unconscious,” especially outside of psychological science. Freud’s model of the unconscious as the primary guiding influence over daily life, even today, is more specific and detailed than any to be found in contemporary cognitive or social psychology. However, the data from which Freud developed the model were individual case studies involving abnormal thought and behavior (Freud, 1925/1961, p. 31), not the rigorous scientific experimentation on generally applicable principles of human behavior that inform the psychological models. Over the years, empirical tests have not been kind to the specifics of the Freudian model, though in broad-brush terms the cognitive and social psychological evidence does support Freud as to the existence of unconscious mentation and its potential to impact judgments and behavior (see Westen, 1999). Regardless of the fate of his specific model, Freud’s historic importance in championing the powers of the unconscious mind is beyond any doubt.”
The Freudian Distortion
The challenge of course with the above viewpoint, is that it is a throwback to Freud's theories a little over 150 years ago. From Freud to the early Kahuna psychology, the unconscious mind was seen as the central unit for everything. However, whereas interpretations of the Kahuna theory on the nature of the unconscious mind was that it was a lower life form, unable to rationalize, obstinate, rebellious and needed to be controlled, like a child, Freud postulated in his psychoanalytic theory of personality, that the id is the personality component made up of unconscious psychic energy that works to satisfy basic urges, needs, and desires and that the id operates based on the pleasure principle, which demands immediate gratification of needs. Whilst Jung divided the unconscious into two parts, he also did not differ too much with Freud when referring to the “personal unconscious”.
It is interesting how both the Kahunas and Freud agree that the unconscious mind is the only component present at the time of birth, both theories share a rudimentary agreement as to its capabilities and yet, disagree as to the nature of the middle self (Kahuna) or Ego (Freud). In fact, as of today, modern science also agrees that unconscious activity occurs in the fetus at 7 months.
In dealing with the third part of the component, the Higher Self (Aumukua – Kahuna) or Super Ego (Freud), the respective theories become even more opposed. As Jung explored the more “esoteric” elements in human culture, he was accused of having “descended into a pseudo-philosophy out of which he never emerged” (Ernest Jones – The Life and Work of Sigmund Freud), we see more correlation in Jung's postulations to that of the Kahuna Psychological System.
I personally began to question the mainstream narrative about the unconscious mind many years ago. Something wasn't adding up. Research in cognitive functioning eventually demonstrated what has been known by Shaman and some 20th century therapeutic hypnotists, that the human mind appears to be able to hold only one thing in conscious awareness at a time.
As a person shifts attention between what is focal, there occurs a what can be best described as a mental dead spot, also known as attentional blink, when a person cannot register consciously newly highlighted information.
Just what does a fetus dream about?
As mentioned above, a person's unconscious mind activates at around 7 months when they are a fetus and conscious activity finally comes online at around 8 years old. Any parent knows that the 8-year old is profoundly different to the 7-year old, and in fact, a survey carried out by the University of Exeter in the UK, showed that the average age for children to stop believing in Santa was aged 8
In Human Design, the system delivered to Ra Uru Hu, I would suggest is not as it has been interpreted, it is merely a highly limited conscious program installed on the human bio-computer that serves to cut communication with the unconscious mind whilst imprisoning the human to a limited finite possibility. Certainly the programming is highly complex, combining direct action, resident, multi-partite and polymorphic virus executables, indicative of the highly intelligent, malicious demi-urge and his Archons spoken of in the Gnostic Texts.
Consider the following discrepancies between the King James version and the original Aramaic translation of John 16:23:24, arguably one of the most important pieces of scripture in the whole bible.
Original Aramaic text:
When Gregg Braden discovered the above original Aramaic translation of John 16:23:24, it was the eureka moment in my search to conclusively challenge the belief that a person's unconscious mind was "dumb". The piece of scripture in the King James bible had challenged me for years because it was demonstrably false. It was a very simple challenge and yet, one that has had a profound effect on the world, accounting for every religious war and a multitude of other heinous belief systems since the death of The Christ.
The Hidden Motive
It boiled down to a simple conclusion, either:
- The Christ lied.
- The text was deliberately rewritten to mislead humanity.
The moment of enlightment occurred to me in a dream. I pay very close attention to my dreams because they are unconscious activity. They answer to the question that I had asked for most of my life, "why do people ask and not receive?" was contained within the lines "ask without hidden motive".
The hidden motive was referring to the conscious mind. The more I focused on this the more I began to recognize what I already knew, deep inside, that we do indeed have two minds as the ancients taught and the latest neuroscience shows, the "ignorant" and "profound" mind. The dictionary defines ignorance as "the state or fact of being ignorant; lack of knowledge, learning, information" in other words, limited conscious processing.
Experts who study the Tarot have realized that the system has only two cards that lead directly to source, "The Lovers" and "The Hermit".
In ritual and ceremony there are three phases of the process:
- Separation from the distraction of daily life. (Conscious Mind)
- The transition stage, or twilight zone (infinite possibility), which lies between. (Unconsious mind)
- The new order of perception of reality that occurs in the sacred time of the soul. (Quantum Reality Shift)
It does not matter whether you achieve these states through meditation, prayer, trance, reading, tantra etc, what matters is that the conscious mind has to be taken offline in order to connect to the true source, unconditional love, The One That Is All.
The question naturally arises, what does established science say about the location of the unconscious mind? The reality is, they barely understand consciousness. In the UK, the BBC has repeatedly explored the mysteries and power of the unconscious mind. In a 2016 documentary, neuroscientist David Eagleman surmises the current awareness: "The more we probe the brain’s workings, the more we realise that our conscious minds are really just a summary of what our brains get up to all the time – without “us” having any idea. As Eagleman puts it, “The conscious you, which is the part that flickers to life when you wake up in the morning, is the smallest bit of what’s happening in your head".
The more a person questions the more a person feels that perhaps this is a question that science may never be able to answer. As Einstein observed:
"Any intelligent fool can make things bigger and more complex… It takes a touch of genius – and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction"
Perhaps the quantum theories disguised as metaphors indicate a level of knowledge known to the ancients that should be re-examined now?
What is a memory?
In hypnosis one of the most powerful therapeutic reprogramming tools the hypnotist has is what is known as "revivication". However as a person looks into exactly what a memory is, they encounter a challenge. In fact, in a series of studies of which the following was the basis for the research "The cognitive neuroscience of long-term memory is ingrained with the assumptions that a particular task measures a single cognitive process and that each cognitive process is mediated by a single brain region. However, these assumptions are simplistic and hindering progress toward understanding the true mechanisms of memory.", a number of observations were made.
What is demonstrable is that a memory is "recreated" using points of reference. The challenge, of course, is what happens if the bio-filing system is corrupted? Anyone who has had the experience of a computer virus understands the impact of a corrupted file. Corrupted memories become conscious active destructive patterns. When we engage a memory then we engage finite possibility because it requires a recreation of a past single event. A person becomes trapped because the conscious mind does not have the processing power to identify what is an illusion.
Diametrically juxtaposed to conscious limitation is the infinite possibility of your unconscious mind. This manifests in a person's life as inspiration, from which music, love, beauty, art, etc. manifest. A person cannot be engaged in an active destructive pattern and experience inspiration simultaneously. This is the whole basis behind the Code Zero Prosperity Matrix.
Unfortunately, most people consciously choose to engage these memories and this manifests experientially as disease, stress, financial challenges, obesity, addiction, anger and so on.
The question that often arises is why does the unconscious mind not intervene when a person is suffering? The answer whilst profoundly complex is also very simple. Because every person has choice, and that is what denoted the divinity of every human, as such, this ability to choose cannot be overridden. This appears to be the true underlying meaning of faith. A person has to choose to have faith in faith, and in that unconditionally vulnerable moment, the unconscious will act. However, the more a person considers the possibility that faith has been hijacked to become a conscious process, the better the understanding they have of what faith actually is.
Understanding the critical importance of the unconscious mind is paramount to Code Zero and in no small way explains the x-factor that has profoundly impacted many people. The ancients developed a psychology system that incorporates this belief as a foundational element, the unconscious is regarded as the inner child, the conscious the Middle Self and the super conscious the Higher Self. It is from this system that we get religious concept of the Trinity, albeit a distorted view.
The role of the conscious mind is limited, however, as a result of the postulations of Descartes and Freud it has been allowed to assume a participation and worthiness far beyond its capabilities. It is akin to driving a Ford Focus in a formula 1 race and expecting it to win. For example, the unconscious mind is believed to be able to handle at least 2.3 billion pieces of information simultaneously. The conscious mind can handle just 1.
Consider for a moment the possibility that we do not have free will, any more than a desktop can choose which program to open without the aid of the user unless already pre-programmed as part of the boot sequence. If the operator makes a mistake and opens the wrong program, the computer has merely responded to the command given it. If the memory clusters are corrupted by errant code, then the conscious mind will simply respond to those files given to it. Because the conscious mind relies on its own self-importance, it will always assume that it is right and legitimize any behaviour, irrespective of how damaging it is to the human
The conscious mind communicates with the unconscious mind, however, it has no ability to regulate the unconscious mind. In addition, the unconscious mind is also the only communication portal to the higher self, and any attempt to communicate otherwise results in what we call “unanswered prayers”. A cursory look around the world today will see that despite the greatest theological minds attempts over the centuries, the problem of “unanswered prayers” remains today. This has a resulted in a control system that has established the phenomena “conscious complexes and fixations” which have multiple negative sociological consequences formed around the core belief of a dictatorial, egotistical and cruel creator, or "the rulers" of the Gnostic writings.
The purpose of frequency?
As the conclusions of Vernetze Intelligenz were applied to this theory there emerged another exciting validation of the ancient science. Many years ago I postulated, long before I discovered these ancient teachings, that if the unconscious mind could recreate a simulation of everything its human experienced during a life cycle at the request of the conscious mind, there must be a way to do a system restore to an earlier working blueprint.
Conversely, if it simply revivifies a simulation (memory), say for example, a flu, then logically, it would “install” progressively worsening symptoms until the simulation was complete. That instruction could be the memory of going to the doctor, getting antibiotics and beginning to heal.
The remarkable anti-aging experiment carried out by psychologist Ellen Langer in 1979, and subsequently reproduced by the BBC not once, but twice, not only adds further validation to this theory, but also implies that when the gnostic gospel of Thomas clearly refers to the innate ability of every human to change the hologram, which in turn, by default, changes a person's experience instantaneously, the writers were in fact being given knowledge by The Christ in metaphors designed to utilize the primary strategy of any hypnotic process, a pattern interupt. This in no small way explains the “placebo effect”.
If we accept the ancient view that, for example, all sickness is a corrupted pattern replaying, and there are many medical examples, such as cardiologists having an above normal rate of heart attacks within their profession, then this reinforces the philosophy that what a person experiences externally is a pattern replaying inside of them. The challenge of course, has been, to develop techniques that coalesce all of this information into a workable solution.
To this end, I have explored frequency in its many forms as being a powerful tool to change the reality the user experiences, which means, anyone participating in Code Zero will be exposed to powerful healing frequencies as an integral part of the process.
In the Essene Gospel of Peace one can observe the following description after one teaching experience:
“And for a long while yet the company sat still and then they woke in the silence, one man after another, like as from a long dream. But none would go, as if the words of him who had left them ever sounded in their ears. And they sat as though they listened to some wondrous music".
This final quote demonstrates without too much doubt that the Christ healed and taught using a hypnotic process combined with frequency. Could it be his continuous reliance on stressing the importance of the unconscious mind (the true divine feminine) by demonstrating miracles is the most important lesson we have forgotten?
As the Gospel of St. Thomas opens with "Whoever finds the interpretation of these sayings will not experience death”, a person immediately recognizes what Erickson referred to as “multi-level communication with the unconscious mind” through the use of analogous linguistics to create powerful psychotherapeutic techniques that can result in profound changes both personally and sociologically.
As every artist knows, a person cannot consciously create a great work of art. What happens in the creative process is that the conscious mind surrenders and gets out of the way. And mountains move. Nietzsche once observed "How good bad music and bad reasons sound when we are marching into battle against an enemy".
I often ask Code Zero participants to try to be angry when thinking of their favorite piece of music. The purpose of this is to show that anger, a conscious process cannot override love, and unconscious process. The Law of Opposite Effect states "the harder a person tries to do something, the more likely they are to fail" which means that when will and imagination compete, imagination will always win.
In Robert Cialdini's book "Pre-suasion" he highlights the fact that before a person consciously recognizes something, their unconscious mind has already made the decision. The realization that we have been incorrectly taught that the limited conscious mind is the most important element by which to live our lives is rising exponentially throughout society.
This knowledge is not new because it appears throughout history in ancient writings and teachings. Yet in our modern "civilized world" for over 200 years the unconscious mind has been subjugated, derided, belittled, dismissed, ignored and undermined. The question of course is why?
As I read and read, the answer again was to be found in Gnostic teachings.
The story of the fall of the Aeon Sofia is worthy of a website in itself and will not be dealt with here, nonetheless, the above quote refers to the divinity hidden within humankind. The unconscious mind.
Nowhere in Gnostic texts do they refer to this "epinoia" (roughly translated as knowing or insight) as masculine, it is always feminine. The ignorant mind (conscious) is always masculine because it is linked repeatedly to the anomaly, the creation of the demi-urge and leader of the archons.
Creation, inspiration, love, empathy, passion, beauty, art and unconditional love are unconscious activities. The child lives and plays in an unconscious world, a world where magic and infinite possibility is the norm.
Because she is divine, which means every human being on the planet simply has to connect to her in order to experience prosperity, abundance and a connection to The One That Is All.
As written about in brutal detail in the Nag Hammadi texts, the treatment of Sofia at the hands of the demi-urge and his Archons, mirrors not only the treatment of women sociologically over hundreds of years, but also the willful destruction of Mother Earth and the subjugation of the unconscious mind by the majority of psychiatrists, psychologists and academics.
The creative power contained within each and every human being is demonstrable and undeniable. However that power needs to be engaged and empowered, not consciously but unconsciously. For many people, they have forgotten their true nature and potential, and yet, deep inside, they experience a yearning, a knowing, a feeling that they are not living to their true potential and experiencing infinite possibility. Our unconscious mind wants to protect us, she wants that we experience abundance, beauty, love, creativity, play, inspiration and prosperity because she is part of source, one of the first thoughts of The One That Is All.
Over the centuries the metaphors handed down from generation to generation have been consciously interpreted, corrupted and turned into a control complex known as spirituality and religion. This conscious interpretation results in the incarceration of the individual in a prison of fear. Fear paralyzes, it distorts, it hurts, it controls and it manipulates.
Yet fear is illusory. Its power relies on one thing and one thing only, a conscious belief in the reality of the illusion. A person can choose to accept this reality, or they can choose to surrender to unconditional love, from which inspiration, abundance, peace, hope, tolerance, empathy, compassion, beauty, art, passion, creation purpose and freedom manifest. Every true teacher has alluded to this.
It's only just a choice, and in that moment of choosing unconditional love over conditional acquiescence, a person powerfully resonates with that specific frequency and is set free. What does this freedom look like, feel like and sound like? Everyone experiences it in fleeting moments on their journey because their unconscious mind continually reaches out in an attempt to remind them of what unconditional love feels like.
Throughout history great visionaries have returned to remind us of this, the ancient texts remind us of this, the stories passed down from generation to generation of the indigenous people on the planet remind us of this, and, this ancient wisdom has been shared using music and words by the great teachers whose voices resonate loudly across space and time.
All a person has ever been asked to do is to simply listen with their heart because the feeling is the solution.
Perhaps you could choose to unleash the power of your unconscious mind now, couldn't you?
Because it's only just a choice.
