Reality vs Creativity

Reality vs Creativity

Saturday, June 13, 2009

By Occult Priestess Korinne

Nay Sayers use “Reality” as the reason to be restricted. This sets up a tao dynamic of seeming opposites when you consider the perception of the visionary who’s art seems to live and breath before their eyes. The tao of mundane reality vs creative reality.
I cannot break it down into science vs religion- the tooth fairy vs lab tech. Extremes happen at each level of experience/function/form. Not all anything is anything- we are all one and we are all unique. Oneness is eternal- individuality is dimensionally time based.

One side states our world and reality are fixed- like a clock, we are all toy soldiers who carry genes, etc. through a mechanism called time. There is no reason nor point to life- only to continue the chain of existence.

The other side states that we are all one, we are eternal, we are what we call God manifest in the third dimension (where perception is based on the rules of time/space and dimension.). Our universe is the story book we live in as human characters on the stage of life. Reality is mutable in nature – magick is real.

Finding out what side of that fence you are on is one of the first steps toward evolution of consciousness. If you find yourself on the Fixed side of the fence- I do not know how to find you, I simply do not know where that place is.

If you find you have created in your life- brought something new to our world that was not here before you came- such as a piece of art, song lyrics, your performance in a play, a dance recital, public ritual- or that interesting cup of tea you mixed today. These are some simple ways we become creators in this play of life. (Advanced students can create their own reality according to their highest will.)

Maybe you have never landed on the moon, but you have been there in your mind- mental experiences so mirror actual physical ones that there are parts of our consciousness that cannot tell the difference between the two. That being a fact imagine, remember all the places you have been in your mind, all the conversations, the dreams, the intensity, the peace.

Now shift your focus to your heart- the home of our feelings. If the mind thinks then surely the heart feels. Just like the mind it stores memories, scenes, and wishes. Take your time and ask your heart what it remembers from the past.

The physical experiences (REALITY) trigger the mental and emotional systems- thus giving you three ways of experiencing life. 1. Physical tactile sensory 2. Mind thought judgment 3. Heart feeling emotion.

A truly balanced life incorporates all three above notions. When the three are working in harmony with each other- the partnership creates depth in each perception. Heart can experience intuition, mind can experience cosmic consciousness or oneness, body can become a “pure vehicle”, a temple for the mind and heart.

Having the mind heart and body working in partnership brings about an alchemical change in the human- Enlightenment- to be anointed, such as Buddha or Christ. “You can do these things and more…”

We can do it!

Help! There is another Person inside my Head!

 

 

Me & my Animus (shadow)

Drawing of my & my animus circa 1995

This is my second day as a “blogger”. I am feeling good about reaching out to the world and disseminating knowledge to the best of my ability. I have often had issues coming up with topics to write about, always waiting until there was a question to answer… But not anymore! I am going to write what ever comes to mind, and I hope You like it.

Did you know there are 4 personalities or 4 parts of your psyche? It’s true. Dr Carl Jung categorized two aspects very well- The Anima and the Animus.

The Animus: The mirror image of the female ego, tucked inside the subconscious mind.

The Anima: The mirror image of the male ego, tucked inside the Subconscious mind.

“What does that mean?!” *chuckle* Yes it is intriguing.

I will explain Jungs theory in my own words based on my own subconscious experience.

I am a Female human. My Ego- ego means my personality- Is Female. Within my Subconscious mind I became aware a man was living in there. Yes the place I go for my dreams and my intuition was being haunted by a  man.

I soon read that we label him the ANIMUS- the inner male personality that corresponds to my outer female personality. You may ask yourself- why do these “Personalities” correspond? How do these personalities have anything to do with one another?

To answer this question we must understand the nature of the subconscious and conscious mind- and how they work together. The conscious mind is mostly what you use when you are awake (unless you are a psychic). Your consciousness connects mostly to your LEFT brain- the brain that does math, grocery lists, and other mundane tasks that keep you breathing and in a body. The right brain is your intuitive mind where creativity of all kinds comes from, as well as dreams and all things in the “Other” category.

As a Personality (EGO) you work with your conscious mind to feed, bathe and cloth yourself- and worry about the neighbors and what Lady Gaga is up too.

Your Personality gets information from the subconscious in the form of dreams, feelings, empathy, amazing ideas, and synchronicity.

To meet and Talk To your inner other (for a female ego her inner self is male – for a male ego your inner self is female) you must connect your conscious (left brain) to your subconscious (right brain).

“Okay this ‘Occultist in the Corner’ just told me I have another person living inside me and to get intouch with them I have to get the two sides of my brain to communicate. This is Nuts!!”

Yes this is nuts for some people- crazy as a Loon! However this is REAL psychology, not the stuff they are teaching in school. Remember the Occult has been a science since before science was invented. So bere with me.

Again speaking from my own perspective as a female ego (just reverse the genders if you are a man okay?) my inner Male was a direct reflection of what my Ego Personality “THOUGHT” of men. Yes my thoughts of men created the form, shape and state of my Inner Male.

Think about that for one moment. What kinds of things do you tell yourself about the opposite sex? Really?

Having been a psychic counselor for 18 years I have heard it all. What bugs me the most is when ladies (most of my clients have been female) say “Men are all the same, I want love but none of them are good enough.”

What is she selling to her inner male when she makes statements like that? She is telling him that he is weak, immature, loud, or what ever gets on her nerves about “men”. These “dark” feelings toward men then get INJECTED into her inner male.

“And then what happens?”

Then the inner male begins to act out and behave as he is told too, and chaos ensues.

You see what ever state your inner Male is in- is what you will attract in a mate!

This is known as “Like Attracts Like” from the philosophy of Hermeticism.

So I know why that sweet and beautiful lady keeps running into Jerks! Yes I know the answer- Her inner male is a Gangster 🙂

When I was working on my inner male I had a dream that illustrated what shape my Animus was in:

I heard my shower running so I went to see who could be in my bathroom. I opened the curtain and I saw Marilyn Manson (rock star). He had open wounds, very pale skin and was shaking with anxiety. I stepped into the tub and nurtured him, bathing him saying everything was going to be okay.

I had to heal my inner Marilyn Manson. No small task I will tell you.

How did I heal my inner male? Through listening to him and being careful what I thought about “men in general”. The book “LOVE MAGICK” by Laurie Cabot (The official Witch of Salem) has a meditation in it to speak to your inner male. This was the only tool I needed.

I know I started this blog talking about the 4 different parts of the psyche- but I think I only have time to cover the 2 main parts.

If you read this Blog please comment & ask questions. Thank you ! Until tomorrow.
