The Gentle Art of Creation

 

By George A. Boyd ©2005

In the Mudrashram® Master Course in Meditation, we detail seven faculties of the attentional principle. These faculties are:

  • Consciousness

  • Intention

  • Telepathy

  • Contemplation

  • Programming

  • Empathy

  • Affirmation (also called the power of manifestation or creation)

Programming is the ability to introduce suggestion into the inner vehicles of consciousness that dwell at different bands of the mind. It forms the basis of autohypnosis, giving suggestions to your self, and hetero-hypnosis, giving suggestions to others as in hypnotherapy or stage hypnosis.

In programming, you drop your suggestion into an inner vehicle. This suggestion operates in this inner vehicle in the background of your awareness, completes whatever you programmed, and then stops.

You can program to your mind to do many different things. For example, you can program it to:

  1. Promote healing of physical symptoms of illness or distress

  2. Become aware of specific behavior, habits or attitudes, and change them into ones you specify

  3. Create stories, poems, plays, or other types of artistic expression, then deliver them to the Conscious mind through the preconscious doorway

  4. Direct your astral body to discrete locations in space, to inner dimensional realms of the Great Continuum of Consciousness, or along the time track, to take that perspective and report what it sees

  5. Solve problems and deliver the solution to the Conscious mind through the preconscious doorway, or in dreams

  6. Awaken psychic sensing by activating the subtle senses of the astral body

  7. Work out emotional issues through healing dreams or insights

Affirmation or Creation

Affirmation or creation differs from programming that instead of giving suggestion to the vehicles of the Conscious, Subconscious, Metaconscious, and Superconscious mind, you drop your "wish" into the force field or plenum of the Superconscious mind. This operates to create or manifest what you want.

Different groups have discovered this method and use it at discrete bands of the Great Continuum of Consciousness. Some examples include:

Band of the Continuum

Invocation of a deity, puja / activation of spiritual powers by invocation of a deity or use of mantras

An individual may attempt to use creation in several ways. Some of these uses are harmful to others. Some are neutral, operating only for your own benefit and not affecting others to any significant degree. Yet others are altruistically motivated or beneficial.

Examples of harmful creation includes

  • Wishing illness, misfortune or death upon others

  • Sending thought forms or "spirits" to torment others

  • Activating traumatic patterns in others' unconscious mind to stimulate emotional tormentor confusion

  • Intensifying patterns of craving or obsession in others' minds to addict them or enslave them

  • Anchoring thought forms of fear, hatred, guilt or prejudice in collective groups of people (e.g., by lectures given to crowds, or through mass media) to control their belief and behavior

Examples of neutral creation includes

  • Manifesting a parking place or getting a reservation at an exclusive restaurant

  • Meeting a friend or relative you wish to see or having them contact you

  • Obtaining on object or condition you desire for yourself, such as wealth, or a compatible loving partner

  • Directing a specific outcome or event, e.g., passing a test or getting a job

  • Serendipity, the spontaneous creation of fortunate or auspicious circumstances

Examples of altruistic or beneficial creation includes

  • Agreeing another will be healed or protected against harm

  • Neutralizing or dissolving harmful creations

  • Assisting another to overcome a personal obstacle to realizing a goal or to remove an unwanted condition through "treatment"

  • Helping another work out a painful trauma or addictive pattern through therapeutic affirmation

  • Summoning Divine, angelic or spiritual assistance fort another through prayer or invocation

It is important for aspirants to discern the consequences of their act of creation, and consider it carefully. What you perceive as neutral creations may inadvertently cause harm to others without your intending to do so. For example:

Are you influencing others to do what they normally wouldn't do, effectively coercing them or forcing them to do your bidding?

Does creating "gain," "victories", or "success" for your self, harm others in the process?

Are you viewing others as "puppets," "objects", or "tools" to carry out your desires without regarding their needs or wishes?

Are you using subtle manipulation of language or behavior to trick people into doing what you want them to do?

The line between neutral creation and harmful creation is subtle, and may be inadvertently crossed by well-meaning aspirants. We suggest that aspirants reflect upon the law of non-injury (Ahimsa) to make sure that, in their zeal to attract and manifest good things for themselves, they are not causing harm to others in ways they may not perceive.

Beneficial or altruistic creation is used in healing, therapy and ministry to others. It is generally used for these benign purposes when the aspirant has reflected on the karmic implications of performing this treatment, prayer, or decree on behalf of others. Beneficial creation is also known as the law of good will, which is marked by kindness, compassion and mercy towards others.

Differentiating the Different Types of Creation

To help aspirants differentiate between these different forms of creation, we recommend that they pay attention to the emotional states associated with each type of creation.

Is the creation associated with the passions of hatred, animosity, desire for cruelty or revenge, greed, lust, anger, craving or obsession? Do you wish to get ahead at the expense of others? Is there a desire to control, enslave, or force others to do your bidding so you may succeed? If these emotions emerge, it is likely a harmful creation.

Is the creation associated with expectation, hope, excitement and joy? Does it make you feel like a dream has come true, that you have experienced success or other good things that make you happy? Do you feel gratitude? If these emotions arise, it is likely a neutral creation.

Is the creation associated with feelings of love, forgiveness, mercy, caring or compassion? Do you deeply empathize with the suffering of others, and want to do something to ameliorate their misery? If these emotions well up within you, it is likely a beneficial creation.

Individuals who enter the Great Stream of Planetary Initiation, and who are anointed by the Holy Spirit, are inspired to beneficial creation. They feel love or others and are motivated to care for others, to help others, and to make a difference in the lives of others. They may be drawn to professions or volunteer in ways that assist others to heal, to overcome personal hardships or injustice, to resolve personal problems, and to establish an empowering and fulfilling relationship with the Divine.

Additionally, those who have experienced personal abuse or suffering themselves may be especially sensitive to the pain of others. These individuals may perform beneficial creation on behalf of others well before they undergo the First Planetary Initiation.

Becoming an Instrument of the Divine Light

We recommend that aspirants reflect upon these three types of creation and stop any type of harmful creation that they may be manifesting. We further recommend that they stop associating with individuals or institutions that perpetuate them to the degree it is possible to do so.

If aspirants wish to be an instrument of the Divine Light, we urge them not to be concomitantly instruments of evil, either intentionally or unwittingly.

We encourage you to weed out any vestiges of negative creations and ultimately align your creation with the wellspring of love and compassion. In this way you will not only become a creator to enhance your own life, but also a co-creator with God to carry out the Divine Purpose, filled with love, compassion and Grace.
