How to control reality with your mind
Welcome to the article I thought I would never write. Infact, I HOPED I wouldn’t ever write it. People that discuss deeper spiritual concepts in a way that’s accessible to the
So first off…. I want to make it clear that this is not going to be laid out as some exclusive cult conversation.
This is for everyone.
If you’re big into motivation psychology, this is for you.
If you’re into quantum reality concepts or energetic manifestation…
You people already working with the information… this stuff will be really empowering for you.
But like I said, I made this for everyone.
If you’re open to something empowering, this requires no prerequisites and results are evident damn near immediately.
This is the script. This is the standard issue operators manual.
This is my narrowed down version of how to command the world around you rather than have it command you.
“Why would I want to do that?”
If you're asking that question, it's most likely because you have a strong compassion compass. I’m glad to hear that.
And I want to acknowledge the implications of what it would really mean to, without any strings attached, control reality with your mind. That’s pretty much game-set-match.
“You’d basically be god at that point, right?”
Well, this is where we clear up the clickbait. While I do hold a lot of these deeper spiritual concepts close, I try to take action based on assurances.
Moving mountains will likely be far harder than creating a business partnership. Why is that? Probably because even while we have a society that seems values intellect and strategy, most of us are raised from a babe looking at reality as a fight.
One where you’ll need physical, mental, and emotional force to pass the rounds and ultimately win.
What you're is the practice of mental and emotional control. Especially if this is your first exposure to this kind of information, you’re going to want to search for your own habits in these pages rather than the techniques.
The thing is, while getting into soccer(read it and weep) or breakdancing might come from the perspective of starting from scratch…. Your practice of Inner alchemy began the moment you opened your eyes.
*Some may say you’ve actually been catapulting through nebulas for zillions of years. To that I say, even so…. Conception seemed to rattle the memory a bit.
Like any self-taught athlete will tell you, unlearning can be monotonous and incredibly frustrating. So now, imagine doing it with the way you think. Imagine doing it with the way you REACT.
I’ll just let that simmer. I’m not trying to be a jackass, but something I want you to realize ASAP is the creating is not nearly as challenging as the “removing of your stubborn trauma-induced self-protection protocol.
It will be pretty hard for you if you’re trying to improve your fitness and you’ve developed a comfort association with sugary baked carbs. It will be REALLY hard for you if you’re trying to heal your relationship with men whilst having a history of violent spouses and relatives in your past.
The good news is, it’s hard for ALMOST everyone. And whatever your aspirations are or whatever your history is, it is possible to do this work.
These principles are based on the writings of legendary leaders and high achievers who’ve, at least according to them, experienced the highest degrees of human fulfillment.
I would not consider myself on the level of people like Pramahansa Yogananda or Richard Branson, but the principles they live by have helped me create some incredible results for myself.
Let me give you some examples:
- I understand how to treat my body in order to reach certain outcomes. Pain, lack of athleticism, and even the degree to which I experience disease and discomfort is entirely up to me.
- Assuming my health is in balance, I have the understanding of how to generate essentially infinite income on my own terms by solving problems and adding value.
- I have an understanding of the fundamentals of human interaction. Unless I refuse to take personal accountability, just short of any relationship I desire with any person is available to me assuming I’m showing up with the awareness I’ve cultivated.
And I continue to see incredible results every day manifesting in my health/wealth/and relationships, happening the more I’m able to adopt the following principles.
The nutshell of “why’ any of this would be meaningful to you, really comes down to you. Consider those big 3: Your health, your wealth, and your relationships. In your mind’s eye, what’s the best case scenario in your life right now in each of those categories?
What would it FEEL like (look like/taste like/smell like) to be in the best state of health according to you right here and right now?
Do the same for a life where you’re financially and experientially satisfied. Now again for a life where you’re fulfilled in all of your relationships.
Bonus challenge: The savvy action takers already read the instructions. For my stubborn 80% learner 20% doers…. Take 5 minutes and actually do each of those 3 visualizations. You’ll be glad you did.
This is what’s possible for you just in the next few years should you decide to take command.
But if it’s that easy….
Why doesn’t everyone do it?
Everyone does do it though. Everyone IS imagining. Everyone IS taking action based on that mental conception, and then reflecting on the situation through their own lens. All of this is like a cycle.
No, everyone IS NOT “bringing shitty things on themselves.” This is a pervasive belief that we should dispel right away. Even if the Universe is 100% under your all powerful control, you’re feeble human mind isn’t capable of accepting all responsibility for all universal events at all times. And if you also consider most people will never be exposed or never find validity in a lifestyle concept like this, it’s not their fault.
It’s up to you who are ready, willing, and able to take on as much accountability as possible to start seeing the greatest possible gains in your life.
When a person's priorities aren’t clarified
Most people are doing what you’re doing: The best you’ve got with what you’ve been given.
And a lot of the time, that means being irresponsible/tired/depressed/anxious/unkind and irritable/etc etc etc. That’s what it means to live a physical life, however. The definition of life almost EXACTLY: imperfection.
We have to understand and come to a sense of peace with this reality before we can take an effective approach to improving our lives.
The steps to manifesting anything, according to damn near any of anyone.
- Know what you want.
- Imagine/feel from having attained it.
- Take action from a place of calm clarity.
That’s it? It’s that simple? So why aren’t most people happy? Why do the people that are MORE aware of the processes and systems of accomplishment often seem even more unhappy than the people that don’t even know it?
Because most of us desire things far greater than the things we’re prioritizing. BEING, DOING, HAVING more or different than we currently are, without aligning our identity with the achieving of those things. And then, we saturate in that feeling of lack and inadequacy.
When a person’s priorities aren’t clarified,
… it shows up as a life riddled with intrinsic challenges.
- Fear-based-self-talk: When people engage in negative self-talk, they tend to focus on their flaws and limitations rather than their strengths and potential. This can lead to feelings of self-doubt and insecurity, which can undermine their ability to take decisive action.
- Procrastination: Procrastination is a common pattern that can get in the way of intentional behavior. When people procrastinate, they put off important tasks and activities, often because they feel overwhelmed or unsure of what to do. This can lead to missed opportunities and a sense of frustration and disappointment.
- Perfectionism: Perfectionism can be a major obstacle to intentional behavior because it often involves setting unrealistic standards and expectations for oneself. When people feel that they must be perfect in order to succeed, they may become paralyzed by fear of failure or be unable to make decisions and take action.
- Distractions: In today's digital media-based world, distractions are everywhere, they are constant, and they will make it difficult to stay focused on your goals. Whether it's short form videos or Reddit articles, distractions can sap one's energy and attention, making it hard to make progress and achieve any meaningful objectives.
- “Negative” emotions: Emotions such as anger, fear, and sadness will get in the way of intentional behavior if they’re not controlled. When people are overwhelmed by their emotions, they may find it difficult to analyze and act on rational decisions, which easily leads to impulsive or reactive behavior.
This isn’t set up to blame you.
There are traumas and damaging expectations you’ve cultivated that probably make zero sense to blame you for.
I don’t have to convince you that NOT having them would be an improvement, however. And even if you don’t fully believe you can eliminate the baggage these experiences have stacked in your life, I want you to have the courage to acknowledge the implications…. And my hope is that the methods I provide further down will prove their efficiency and change your life no matter what you “believe.”
I want you to have proof that you really can feel better and have the experiences you want to have.
There’s two ways to get there.
The first is frankly the most conventional and least commonly followed - Let go of all worldly desires.
The second is to do what most people simply don’t do: Practice reflection and use the tension of desire to align yourself with those achievements.
(This isn’t a paper arguing the morality of desire. I said I was going to give you the exact steps, I’m going to give you the exact steps. I just want to at least touch most of the most common considerations, because if you feel the need to force yourself to ignore a life of selflessness…. There’s something you need to work on there. )
So just a quick recap, in order to create whatever we want,
- We need to know what we want.
- And we need to know what it would be like if it existed right now.
Then we need to navigate the relationship that we have with our human capacity to become irritable. We know this is a huge dilemma
(by it, we mean literally any human’s life).
Let’s do a deep dive on what exactly these would look like as a stand alone or habitual practice.
Bringing things about.
- Determine what you want. Begin with the end in mind, and as you imagine try to create as much clarity on your final destination as possible.
Recommendation: Find a quiet place where you can clear your mind, and try to visualize the end result. The goal with this is to focus on FEELING. With practice, you’ll be able to associate thoughts and feelings to the point of an embodied STATE in regards to your desired achievement. The clearer you get on what this looks like/feels like/ and how YOU show up( in other words, exist), in the scene, the easier it will be to re-identify. We’ll talk more about that below.
- Transcribe your vision on to paper. This means you should write about the goal in as much personalized detail as possible.
A big part of this is to reinforce that concept of identification. Repetition builds mastery, and when you use practices like journaling or affirmations, it makes your ability to identify with this higher-achieving version of yourself far easier. Another supporting function of this whole idea is what a lot of people call “brain dumping”, or simply that your brain only has a limited amount of storage space. When you transcribe your thoughts onto paper, you’re subconsciously telling yourself that whatever the goal is…. It’s enough of a priority that you’re willing to write it down.
Side note: Literally any and all writing practices serve this function. You’re prioritizing it enough to make a hard copy of it, and your identity becomes more and more in alignment with these things that you’re prioritizing.
- Reflect. For your day to day improvements, you can just journal about what went well, and what could be improved. For the deeper, identity-level character shifts… practice “Shadow work”
What is shadow work? From a technical perspective, it’s a term used in psychology and personal development that refers to the process of exploring and integrating the unconscious or repressed aspects of oneself, often referred to as thea term used in psychology and personal development that refers to the process of exploring and integrating the unconscious or repressed aspects of oneself, often referred to as the "shadow self."
The concept was first introduced by Carl Jung, who believed that the human psyche is composed of both the conscious and the unconscious mind, and that the unconscious mind contains aspects of ourselves that we may not be aware of or may not want to acknowledge.
These aspects can include repressed emotions, beliefs, memories, and behaviors that we have pushed into the shadows of our psyche because we’ve deemed them unacceptable, shameful, or threatening.
However, these unacknowledged parts of ourselves can still impact our thoughts, feelings, and actions, often leading to negative patterns and behaviors that we may not understand or have difficulty changing.
So how does one practice this?
By dedicating yourself to a lifelong practice, first and foremost. If you went back to the 1600s and asked legendary samurai Miyamoto Musashi the secret to improving, he would tell you to make your very life a practice of the art you’re progressing in. Your training session is 1, and it is 24 hours a day… as many days as you live.
"Today is victory over yourself of yesterday; tomorrow is your victory over lesser men."
Objectively, the steps of shadow work are a sort of cycle that’s a life long commitment. :
- Identify what kinds of “negative” emotions or experiences show up for you on a regular basis. Start to write down a short summary of these moments, and reflect as you start to notice patterns.
- Use predetermined journals and meditations to help you deconstruct your experiences with the ultimate goal of separating your current emotional patterns with the patterns of your past.
There could be no better use of the phrase “easier said than done” than in this moment. Shadow work is a fancy name for a lifelong commitment that is fucking challenging. I’m not going to draw this out, if having deeper guides into how I conduct “shadow work” with myself and my clients, drop a comment or send me a message.
This is powerful stuff and if there’s a demand for it I’d like to meet that demand with value.
