How Reality Creation Works
Let’s start at the beginning. If you want to test out this concept for yourself, start by looking around you: observe the people in your life, the situations you find yourself in, and the problems or issues you face.
The world as you see it is a reflection of what you are, a reflection not in glass but in three dimensional reality. You project your thoughts, feelings, and expectations outward, then you perceive them as the outside reality When it seems to you that others are observing you, you are observing yourself from the standpoint of your own projections.” (The Nature of Personal Reality, Session 610, p. 4)
- If your house has been broken into or your computer hacked, look deeply at your beliefs about your safety and privacy.
- If people take advantage of you, is that exactly what you expected might happen? Do you believe that other people have power over you? Or maybe that you aren’t as important or capable as other people?
- If you can never seem to lose excess weight, do you simultaneously have a fear that looking too good makes you a target for sexual advances that you fear?
It is not just problems like these that can give you a clue about how deep-seated beliefs affect your outcomes; all the things you are grateful for are also based on your beliefs.
- If you have a loving partner, you no doubt believe that you are worthy of love.
- If you are valued and acknowledged at work, you already believe that you have something worthwhile to contribute.
Seth says that the world is something like a school for us, complete with playground. Using our creative abilities is the very purpose for our being in this reality. Through trial and error we will learn to use our abilities to choose probabilities and thus develop as a species. Apparently, in some other realities, beings use these abilities expertly and have fun doing so. (To see a fantastic account on one woman’s near death experience and how it taught her to have fun with reality creation, watch here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Wjx-dF-qWs
The world is meant to serve as a reference point. The exterior appearance is a replica of inner desire. You can change your personal world. You do change it without knowing it. You have only to use your ability consciously, to examine the nature of your thoughts and feelings and project those with which you basically agree. (The Nature of Personal Reality, Session 609, pp. xix-xx)
Obstacles, Assistance, and Alignment
Sometimes we have beliefs that conflict with each other. For example, I may believe that women are just as competent as men. Yet I may have a subconscious belief, ingrained since childhood, let’s say, that it is natural for men to be the leaders. This will be a problem because of the electromagnetic energy of thoughts and feelings.
According to Seth, thoughts, imagination, beliefs, and emotions all are forms of concentrated energy. Seth says that a strong emotion actually has more energy behind it than it takes to send a rocket to the moon.
(The combination of) thought, emotion, and desire creates form, possesses energy, (and) is made of energy. (Seth Speaks, Amber-Allen, 1994/1972, Session 540, p. 145)
Seth says that every form of consciousness, including human, is constantly sending out energy in all directions. In fact, he asserts that the space outside of our bodies is composed of the same elements as our bodies, but in different proportions and that they are constantly exchanging chemicals. So great gestalts of energy mix and merge. Ones that are like in their intensity and inclination attract each other. (You can read about the electromagnetic energy in so called “empty” space here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vacuum_state or here: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/peter-baksa/zero-point-field_b_913831.html I also recommend that you watch this live presentation of physicist, Nassim Haramein:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v0B-ZhBwhiM
Your feelings have electromagnetic realities that rise outward, affecting the atmosphere itself. They group through attraction, building up areas of events and circumstances that finally coalesce, so to speak, either in matter as objects–or as events in ‘time’. (The Nature of Personal Reality, Session 613, p. 10)
You may remember from previous posts that Seth claims the nature of reality is one of cooperation and support. When we are in sync with inner reality, we receive this support without impediment.
The inner portions of your being operate spontaneously, joyfully, freely; all of this occurs because your inner self believes in you, often even while you do not believe in it. These unconscious portions of your being operate amazingly well, frequently despite the greatest misunderstanding on your part of their nature and function, and in the face of strong interference from you because of your beliefs. (The Nature of Personal Reality, Session 614, p. 19)
So what exactly is this helpful inner self? It is your soul. Seth says that the soul is an electromagnetic energy field, of which you are a part. He also calls souls selves. According to Seth an entity can be thought of as an Oversoul, a mental structure, comprising many souls or selves. Each entity is a fragment of All-That-Is. Every human life is equated with one of those entities. And, together, all of the selves that are part of the same Oversoul/entity are actually multi-dimensional aspects of that larger entity. Seth says that we are in the process of becoming conscious participators with our own Oversoul. That is what our evolution is really about. We all feel that the center of our consciousness is within us. That’s our perspective because the present moment is the point of intersection where our physical consciousness and our Oversoul meet.
Your being, the greater consciousness that is yourself, intersects with space and time; it is born in flesh simultaneously at many [moment] ‘points.’ (See the 668th session in Chapter Nineteen.) You would call each of these immersions into three-dimensional existence a life, with its own self and aware of its own time and dimension of activity. And you are one of these. (The Nature of Personal Reality, Session 672, p. 398)
I will leave the story of our multi-dimensional selves for another post, but in terms of reality creation, just know that your soul always has your best interest in mind. When challenging situations and problems crop up in this reality, your soul tries to help you, especially when you aren’t able to help yourself.
The inner self [soul] is embarked upon an exciting endeavor, in which it learns how to translate its reality into physical terms. The conscious mind is brilliantly attuned to physical reality, then, and often so dazzled by what it perceives that it is tempted to think physical phenomena is a cause, rather than a result. Deeper portions of the self always serve to remind it that this is not the case. When the conscious mind accepts too many false beliefs, particularly if it sees that inner self as a danger, then it closes out these constant reminders. When this situation arises the conscious mind feels itself assailed by a reality that seems greater than itself, over which it has no control. The deep feeling of security in which it should be anchored is lost . . . The false beliefs must be weeded out so that the conscious mind can become aware of its source once again, and open to the inner channels of splendor and power available to it. (The Nature of Personal Reality, Session 615, pp. 30-31)
What does Seth mean when he says that we get reminders from our inner self? These reminders can take many forms. Some of them are illnesses, accidents, obstacles, and what seem like adversities, to name a few. I experienced this myself during my career when I was pushing very hard for a new venture. I used every drop of energy and will and imagination I had to achieve this outcome. On the day I sealed the deal, I was flying home on the highway, exuberant, when suddenly two of my tires got blowouts at once and I veered into the breakdown lane, lucky to have escaped catastrophe. No kidding. How’s that for a reminder that I was on the wrong track?!
The flip side of this phenomenon is when you get reminders that you are on the right track. Those take the form of synchronicities or meaningful coincidences. According to Seth, these actually show that there is another kind of order behind the one we recognize and if we pay attention, we can learn to comprehend that order of reality too.
In the final part of this series, we will go over, step-by-step, Seth’s directions for reality creation.
