How To Make Your Dreams Come True
You will become as great as your dominant aspiration...If you
cherish a vision, a lofty ideal in your heart, you will realize
it.~James Allen, As You Think
This morning I was thinking about the structure of
consciousness. I'd like to share my ideas with you because
they'll give you a grasp of how you are the architect of your
We experience consciousness as thinking. Thinking, in turn,
arises from the senses interacting with the world, absorbing
data, and then mapping out the meaning of that information.
Thinking is a compulsive and flowing habit, an incessant
pulsation of electromagnetic waves in our brains.
However to think, we need a thinker. Thus, while thinking may
appear to be all that there is to consciousness, some quiet
contemplation will reveal a thinker behind the thinking.
Usually, the thinking controls the thinker. However, after some
prolonged spiritual practice, like Zen, the thinker can become
detached from the thinking and see that thinking is an
In fact, a seasoned practitioner of meditation and contemplation
can even voluntarily stop thinking all together. At this point,
consciousness appears to be pure awareness, observation of the
world without attachment and aversion. Those who attain this
present moment consciousness are said to be enlightened.
Who or what is this thinker? I believe the thinker is the soul.
The soul is a non-material unit of consciousness. It abides in
the human body infusing it with life-force and organizing that
life-force or essential vitality with what is called mind.
When a person dies, the soul has left it. The soul then travels
to other dimensions. The soul is a deathless entity that cannot
be injured in any way.
All mishap and injury occur to the mind and the body. An injury
to the mind is a life-upset, a paradigm crash, which traps
aspects of the life-force. The purpose of a good psychologist is
to release and reintegrate that life-force particle so that the
person regains their vigor for life again.
Behind the soul, however, is pure consciousness. While the soul
is conditioned by materiality because it is incarnated in a
mind-body complex, pure consciousness is omnipresent,
omniscient, and omnipotent. This quantum field of pure
potentiality that brings all things into existence and remains
in a constant state of non-dual beingness, consciousness, and
bliss we call God.
Let us now return to thinking, and we shall see that it is the
cause of all our experiences. And because it is, we can engineer
it to create a life of complete satisfaction.
The organization and arrangement of thinking is within a
framework, we call mind.
Mind, in turn, has three components: superconsciousness,
consciousness, and subconsciousness.
Since we are mainly familiar with our conscious mind, we shall
start by discussing it.
What the conscious mind does is think. It mainly uses verbal
language to do this thinking. The conscious mind can hold only a
little bit of information. The rest of the information is then
delegated to the subconscious mind.
The subconscious mind holds all the information of the person.
Now, the subconscious mind speaks a different language. It
speaks in the language of pictures, emotions, and sensations.
The function of the conscious mind is to review the world and
make decisions about it. The conscious mind gathers data, sifts
and sorts through it, and then decides what it wants. This is
called a decision.
The function of the subconscious mind is to bring those
decisions into experience. The subconscious mind projects
electromagnetic waves into the quantum field where it then
interacts with similar energetic patterns and draws them into a
person's experience. Thus, just like a movie projector, the
images on the film are translated into the screen of experience.
This is where it gets interesting. The conscious mind decides
and the subconscious mind follows that decision without
question. Unfortunately because they speak different languages,
translation difficulties often occur.
Thus while the conscious mind decides that it wants, say, more
money, the subconscious mind may interpret this to be a threat
based on feelings that arose from past negative experiences with
money. So the dictate of the conscious mind is nullified by the
conditioning of the subconscious mind. What happens is that the
person is baffled to find that money does not show up in their
lives despite their need, desire, and even desperation for it.
They have read about the metaphysical laws of attraction and the
supporting evidence of anecdotes and quantum mechanics but
somehow nothing happens.
What needs to happen is that the conscious mind and the
subconscious mind have to be aligned. This happens through an
inner conversation. By sitting still, a person can get focused
to use the conscious mind to read the feelings and sensations
that money creates in them. This reading is a view of the
subconscious mind. If the thinker notices fear, then the
subconscious mind is programmed to repel money from their
experience. No matter how long they affirm what they want, the
subconscious mind is listening to a previous command that was
installed by a bad financial experience.
Once the misalignment is detected there are two ways to correct
it. One is the positive way and the other is the negative way.
(And when I say positive and negative, I don't mean a value
judgment of good and bad, I just mean that they are different
The positive way is to realize that you are a soul and connected
to an infinite source of anything that you could possibly need
or want. You then channel the quantum field of infinite
potentiality through visualizing an image of white light coming
in through the top of your head and filling your heart with what
you want. This then switches the negative feelings of the
subconscious mind into the desired positive feelings. This is
the metaphysical approach.
The negative way is to go into the subconscious mind, recall the
bad past experiences, and release your emotional attachment to
them. In this way, by correcting the problem, your subconscious
mind will realign to suit your conscious wishes. This is the
approach used by most psychological theories to heal major life
Once the conscious mind and the subconscious mind are in
alignment, the intention is then accepted by the subconscious
mind which then lobbies the proper vibrations into the
superconscious mind. The superconscious mind, in turn, returns
the vibration as an experience.
Since we're getting very abstract, an analogy might clear things
up a little. Suppose you're working in a small store and you're
dying of thirst. You can't leave to get something to drink
because you have customers to attend and you're the only one
running the show. Using the principles of the Law of Attraction,
you use your conscious mind to direct your subconscious mind to
bring you a Gatorade. You see it, feel it, and believe it. The
sensations from your body tell you that the subconscious mind is
in alignment with your desire. You then let the idea go. An hour
passes, and lo and behold, your friend stops by and because it's
a hot, sweltering day, thoughtfully stopped by the grocery store
to pick up a Gatorade for you.
We label such experiences coincidences, but coincidences can be
deliberately created by understanding the structures of
So far, we have alluded to the conscious mind and the
subconscious mind and hinted at something called the
superconscious mind. It's very difficult to understand the
superconscious mind and very few writers make a stab at it. Some
call it the Universal Mind, others the collective unconscious,
and yet others the quantum field of pure potentiality, or God.
It is this superconscious mind that translates the vibrations
sent out by the subconscious mind. This work is so subtle that
to the conscious mind it is always magical. When a message is
sent to the superconscious mind, two things can happen:
serendipidity and synchronicity.
Serendipity is when an idea or inspiration of enormous magnitude
falls into your mind. These reflections, for example, occurred
to me after I asked myself about the structure of consciousness
when I was in meditation.
Synchronicity is another way the superconscious mind responds to
a subconscious broadcast. An example is the illustration about
the Gatorade bottle showing up for the thirsty store clerk. In
my own life, a recent example of synchronicity was discovering
websites that can double your money. I then created a free
course around that so that participants could develop the right
mindset to benefit from these investment programs.
Finally, here is another way to use your mind to create magic in
your life. It's a popular way used for centuries. It's called
prayer. As the Bible puts it, "Seek ye first the Kingdom Of God
and all these things shall be added unto thee." Also, "Let go,
and let God," as they say in 12 step programs.
For prayer to work, two conditions must be met. One is a
positive feeling after the prayer is sent out. This positive
feeling is faith. Without a positive feeling, faith is absent
and the prayer returns as void. The second condition is to
completely release attachment to control of the outcome. This is
more popularly called, surrender. Complete faith and surrender
make prayer work.
Whether you choose to bring serendipidity or synchronicity into
your life indirectly through conversing with your subconscious
mind or directly through prayer--or both if you like-- you have
to let go of the ego's desire for knowing how. It is not
possible to know how something is going to come into your
experience because your conscious mind does not have the
information to calculate the infinite variables of the quantum
It's possible to live life by design. You accomplish this by
tapping into the full spectrum of consciousness available to
