Creating from Higher Mind - 'Mastering the art of ancient White Magic'

Mastering the ancient art of White Magic
We often speak here at Openhand about the mis-information we feel is happening in spiritual circles concerning 'manifestation'. On the one hand the beauty is that we've realised consciousness and matter are the same thing; that we shape and change matter from what we're being within. In some teachings though (most notably "The Secret"), we feel this ancient truth has been taken a step too far; trying to shape circumstances to manifest a new, apparently more desirable reality. There's simply no need to do this. Our higher selves, inline with the Divine Design, have already imagined a future far more miraculous, far more harmonious and far more loving than our lower egos could ever dream of. And all we have to do is open to Higher Mind and bring that authentic dream into reality. So how does authentic creating from Higher Mind really work? Here is a point of view from my own direct experience...

Higher Mind - channeling pure knowing
The way "Higher Mind" functions is completely different to "Lower Mind" (what our society refers to as "Mind"). Lower Mind is designed to work in harmony with its higher complement, channeling pure knowing from higher plains of consciousness into this 3rd Dimensional Realm that we may benefit from the wisdom and bring it into being. It has the power to shape our reality according to the lessons we came here to learn. At least that's what's supposed to happen.

For various reasons (far too many to go into here), society has shunted the consciousness of man very firmly into the realm of Lower Mind. Constant distraction, illusionary dreaming and artificial life-styles have created for us an endless amusement arcade that over-stimulates Lower Mind so that it swallows up a great deal of our Soul Consciousness. We've been gifted an exquisite symphony orchestra which is being drowned out by an over active base drum!

Higher Mind is much more gentle, subtle, expanded and open. It thrives on soft, abstract, very feminine contemplations; it needs no immediate solutions. It expands and opens, feeling the harmony of the moment like the sensitive tentacles of an ancient sea anenome. It doesn't need to process, calculate, envision, plan or intention. Such activities are all Lower Mind based. All too frequently they come from a place of non acceptance - of fear.

Higher Mind works from the place of absolute trust - knowing the inevitability of the Divine Design. When it is fully open and acting as it was designed to, it can weave synchronisitic magic through the densest of places, unravel the most complex, gordian knot of tightness, it can move mountains and build a solid path across wafer thin ice. It simply knows which way the Universe is heading and what it's shaping because it is an integral part of that flow. From my perspective, it's purpose is...

"To shape the immediate circumstances of one's life to bring the natural flow of the Universe through our being and therefore shape our reality according to the Divine Design so that we may evolve, learn and express our divine gifts of beingness."

And here's how to get Higher Mind working for you...

Let's imagine for a moment we encounter a "problem" in our lives: for example a difficult situation within a relationship; or it could be our living circumstances where maybe a change of location would best suit our new level of consciousness; or it could be that our career no longer satisfies. Traditional thinking in society would have us rationalise, contemplate the options and then weigh the various factors to arrive at the best solution.

This is to completely disregard the limitless shaping capacity of Higher Mind. It shows lack of trust in Right Outcome and it actually closes down our connection to the higher plains where Higher Mind Functions. Instead, I've found Higher Mind works much more effectively from a place of surrendered openness...

"It's all about letting go of the need for an outcome; it's about facing our fear that the end result might not be as our lower ego would want it to be; that we might have to confront and overcome self imposed restrictions and limiting beliefs we might hold about ourselves.

From this place of surrendered openness, we may then relax, expand our consciousness and simply bring our attention to the problem; then trust that Higher Mind is shaping the situation according to our highest interests and the best interests of all life.

Having done this, all we then need to do, is ask the question "what would you have me do now?" and watch what our higher self is asking us to do; then to take the next step...that which naturally reveals itself. We will know if we're following the right path because two things will be revealed...

1. addictive, conditioned and distorted behaviour patterns which dim our light
2. an opportunity to express and unfold our divine gifts of beingness"

This is why it's so important to follow the synchronicities in life; because we're attuning to the natural flow and in so doing, the stronger the flow of Right Action becomes. But we don't have to effort to do this. Efforting turns off this limitless power. Neither will intentioning help matters; that just adds limitation to the Design. It's as if we're asking Higher Mind to configure a Rubics cube but with one arm tied behind it's back!

Letting go of fear, doubt and disbelief
No, we don't have to vision or intention the outcome. The Right Outcome simply happens. All we have to do is bring our attention to the problem, expand, relax, open and trust that Right Action is beginning to flow through the situation. We have to let go of fear doubt and disbelief. I'm reminded of a powerful incident that happened to me a few years ago...

We'd found a house in Glastonbury which was quite expensive (£695 per month), our earnings were at the time were quite low and it wasn't at all clear how we could afford it. After the first month, sure enough we didn't have sufficient funds to pay the rent, however I did have a car that I could live without which was worth around £700. So I felt to sell it and thought the best way might be on the internet through "Auto-trader" - that's how I'd always done it in the past and traditional thinking would say I'd reach the widest audience.

However, just at the moment I tried to take a photo of the car, the batteries on the camera ran out! I thought to replace them but just as the thought landed in my mind a huge black cloud passed over head and it started to rain. By now it was clear to me that a greater energy was at work - I simply don't believe in coincidences!

So at this point I completely surrendered to what I should do next. Having asked the question "what would you have me do now?", I jumped into the car and drove to where I would normally park it - the space was full. I continued driving to the next street but as I drove up it, a car did a sudden U-turn in front of me. It had a "JC" in the number plate and I felt a pull to turn around and follow it. If the Christ Consciousness wants to help me sell my car - so be it!

I was led on a merry journey which took me onto Glastonbury High Street - and as I was driving down it, suddenly a car pulled out in front of me with its hazard warning lights on. I experienced a distinct and sudden knowing to park the car in the freed place.

Here's where lower mind then kicked it - "maybe I should put a price on it and leave it there?" It seemed like a good idea until doubt and disbelief began to raise their ugly heads "but it could be days before anyone sees it; this all seems a bit like too much chance". However I overcame their noisy chatter and relaxed. I found pen and paper and priced the car at £700. It was now about 5pm in the evening.

To my great surprise (I'm no longer surprised by the amazing organising power of Higher Mind!), I received a phone call the very next morning at around 9am. A passer-by had seen the car and was interested - he knocked on my door a short while later.

As we shook hands, it was clear there was some kind of connection between us that spanned the passage of time. I invited him in and a deep sharing took place about the meaning of life, the nature of the Universe, even the kitchen sink - but absolutely no mention of the car!

After about three hours, with all conversation exhausted, it seemed like it was time for him to leave and so I asked "what about the car?" We looked at each other, smiled and then doubled up with laughter - we'd forgotten the supposed purpose of our meeting! At which point, he reached into his inside pocket and handed me an envelope with £700 cash in it! He never checked the car, just simply took the log book and keys.

As he was leaving, tears welled up in my eyes. I'd rarely encountered anyone prepared to trust to this level. As he left, I asked him how he managed to come by the car in the first place? To which he replied "oh that's simple. I thought I was looking for a new home in Glastonbury, but I also needed a car. Your car was parked opposite one of the estate agents. I just followed the pull!"

Needless say the incident was a wonderful and magical lesson for me in trust, the importance of being open to Right Action and having the courage to take the next step no matter how improbable it might seem. It was a while after that I came to realise that our Higher Minds are actually shaping these events for us - when they are open and active.

To me this is what it really means to "walk on water". Higher Mind can help us in a myriad of ways from doing the school run, speaking our truth to the boss, to confronting a partner about their judgment of us, trusting all the while that a new pathway will be supported by the Universe no matter how unlikely it might appear. To me, this is the real meaning of "abundance" and Yes, miraculous isn't it!!!

And how then should we best apply Lower Mind to this flowing dynamic? Should we switch it off completely? No. When we are open to the higher realms, Higher Mind begins to shape our reality which may then land in our being as "this is how to be now". This gets translated into "this is the way to go now", in other words a "pull" through the heart taking us in a particular direction (assuming we listen to it!). Where Lower Mind fits in, is realising what steps to take - channeling higher consciousness into our lower reality.

Re-activating Higher Mind
So how might we best re-activate Higher Mind? Here is some advice and practical steps we might take...

1. Inner Purification: In order to access Higher Mind in the first place, we must purify our lower bodily vehicles so that Soul Consciousness is liberated from the lower realms and can flow upwards. This involves purifying our diet from the denser vibrations such as meat to the lighter ones of grain, vegetables and fruit. It also involves meditation type practices to cleanse and purify our Emotional Body and Lower Mind.
2. Dissolving Distortions: We must begin to cleanse the brain and Lower Mind of conditioned behaviour patterns. We must erase the programs in our lives by confronting those moments where we would succumb to them and instead follow our higher truth. This is achieved by becoming the Observer of ourselves in all circumstances, watching our tightness arising as a result of the choices we continually make and instead choosing that which is in our highest interests and that of all life - that which ultimately leaves us more expanded and open.
3. Opening the Heart: We must open the Heart as fully as possible. In other words we must begin to feel more of the natural joy and beauty of life all around us. This involves giving more time each day to those things that bring us joy, openness and expansion. Be careful here though - it's not a case of "anything goes". It's all about what makes us feel truly expanded and liberated inside (without unnatural side effects!). It's when we feel "in the groove" so to speak.
4. Attuning to the flow: Higher Mind can be likened to a muscle; if we don't use it, it will wither away. To exercise it, we have to give room for spontaneous acts of higher knowing within our lives. Here at Openhand we play a game called "free wheeling", being open, asking "what would you have me do now?", following the pull and witnessing what signs and synchronicities we then observe. It's a powerful exercise to activate Higher Mind and attune to the natural flow. Quite apart from that, it can be great fun!
5. Contemplating Abstractions: Higher Mind can also be opened by contemplating abstract issues such as the meaning of life. The key is that there be no need of an outcome or solution. Simple enjoyment in the contemplation is the key. That's why reading about spiritual matters can be so valuable.
6. Cultivating humour and optimism: If we expect our lives to falter and for negativity to happen to us, then surely enough we'll create that in our lives. Here at Openhand we believe success is measured by the degree of internal harmony, contentment and satisfaction we experience. If we're open to a more optimistic way of looking at things, then surely enough, Higher Mind will help us realise the solution to the supposed 'problem' thereby yielding greater harmony. Cultivating a greater sense of humour is also paramount to Higher Mind creation - laughing in the face of life's difficulties, always looking for the lighter side.
7. Creating for the fun of it: We can begin to 'flex' Higher Mind by creating just for the fun of it. So for example taking up the arts, playing a musical instrument, singing, dancing, painting, writing, building or modeling. The key is that there be no effort for an outcome. So for example, if we're learning to play the guitar, it's not about the tune we play, it's just about playing with sound and seeing what comes from it. If we're efforting to learn chords, it's likely this will constrict Higher Mind, not unleash it. It's the same reason that so many people like to write.

Feeling the way forwards
Many of society's most successful artists also come from the place of Higher Mind channeling spontaneous higher wisdom expressed in a third dimensional way. We just know higher truth when we experience it don't we? It's packed with deep, heart felt feelings, stirring emotions and powerful love.

So why not give it a try? Open to the so called "problems" in our lives; contemplate them without efforting; trust that the weave is being woven; then simply take the natural path that reveals itself.

What have we got to lose?

Hi Ian,

Yes I agree with much of what you say - I sense we are quite well aligned.

Where you said...

"Intelligent higher consciousness is essentially the main driver for our manifested reality, it feels as if all scenarios have already been dreamed up, almost like every permutation of events that could happen between what we perceive as Evil to Love are already mapped out in the continuum."

Yes it has often seemed to me as if all possible options have already been created and we're bringing one possibility into being by our choices. It's as if the key is not about the choices we make, but understanding why we are making them - our purpose being to learn and express who we really are.

And yes, to me also there seem to be paths set up to 'catch the ego out' so that we may see where the false self is operative in our lives that we may dissolve it.

In so doing, yes I agree with you the more we go with the higher choice, the more we witness synchronicity as we align with the flow. And yet this then leads to a way of being where we become the flow then it's not that we're following synchronicity anymore, but we make choices and notice the synchronistic harmony that we're now a part of.

When we reach this position, it's my experience that we seem to be creating uniquely and in the moment. I no longer get the sense that I'm just following possible options that have been lined up for me. It's as if I'm creating in line with a higher purpose.

I think the key difference is that in the former case we're being the ego aligning to the higher self and in the latter, we actually BECOME the higher self using Higher Mind and a vehicle of expression.

I would also agree that in some ways we are creating as a collective. And yet the scope of the collective is not pre-determined or fixed. Some will ascend and continue to evolve but many won't - too many souls have become intoxicated by materiality. There are also different levels of evolution within the collective - so its not a case that we're limited by others. Yes, our consciousness will help accelerate the collective, but in my experience that doesn't mean we're constrained by it.

Where you say...

"From the perspective of larger groups of people aligning themselves with the Higher Self, it will start to appear as if the greater reality has changed to reflect this. But in fact from what you are saying here is, it’s not the greater reality mirroring the newly aligned people, but the people now seeing the world through the new eyes of the higher self"

Yes totally!!! When we're thinking that we can shape or create our reality, it's always the case that we are separate from the creative flow. Its kind of like riding a surf board and continually asking ourselves if we're still aligned with the wave. If we have to ask, we're behind the wave and tend to fall off!

However, when we're truly in the flow, its as if we become the wave - in fact we do....

"All know that the drop merges into the ocean but few know that the ocean merges into the drop"

but we're not asking anymore if we're aligned and which way to go now? There is just flow. We cease to be the microcosm and become the macrocosm expressed through the microcosm. The lower reality becomes a reflection of the higher truth - not vice versa!

Best wishes

Thank you for sharing this, your philosophy makes a lot of sense to me. My thinking is not so different from your own but I might be viewing things from a different perspective. In order for me to align my own thinking with yours I would like to share my own concepts.

Intelligent higher consciousness is essentially the main driver for our manifested reality, it feels as if all scenarios have already been dreamed up, almost like every permutation of events that could happen between what we perceive as Evil to Love are already mapped out in the continuum.

So with the many different tracks already laid out it’s our choice through the decisions we make which route we take. So if we align ourselves with our Higher Self then synchronicities will become more apparent leading and nudging us to move onto the higher more joyful tracks of life. Individual to global synchronicities will start to happen more and more as we evolve as a collective. It appears that the river is slowly moving us all in one direction, towards ascension but it’s up to us which part of the river (or which track) we want to be on for the ride.

Conversely there are tracks setup within the lesson of life that are ego led. Could it be that the tracks that we perceive as negative are already laid, but are there for the very purpose of allowing the ego or the absence of higher self thinking to experience an alternative more bumpy route? I think so.

So in terms of the mis-information given by “The Secret”, it isn’t really creating a new reality through intention then is it?. Reality has already been defined by higher consciousness, but through allowing ourselves to surrender to these greater forces (which I guess is also acceptance) then we start to perceive a better version of reality that’s in alignment with the higher self way of living. If you’re not meant to be a millionaire then the higher self isn’t going to guide you or assist you in this direction and many boulders will be put in one’s way.

From the perspective of larger groups of people aligning themselves with the Higher Self, it will start to appear as if the greater reality has changed to reflect this. But in fact from what you are saying here is, it’s not the greater reality mirroring the newly aligned people --- but the people now seeing the world through the new eyes of the higher self, which allows us to live the more joyful higher self experiences already dreamed up by the higher intelligence?.

Have I correctly aligned my thinking to your message written here? Your views are most welcome.
