The Relationship of Consciousness

Between The Physical Mind and The Spiritual Mind


We understand consciousness—that magic of awareness that you are alive and awake, and that you are you, not somebody else. Consciousness is the scent of pine in winter, the sense of the colour blue, the memory of a first kiss, the thrill of an exceptional performance—all of the rich and ineffable qualitative experiences that make life worth living and that slide through time, knitting one moment to the next. Consciousness is one of the three mysteries in the world: if we ask what is the origin of the universe, what is the origin of life, we are also asking what then what is the origin of consciousness? 

In my Actual-death experiences; I was taught, I would come to understand I have a ‘child within myself’, and it was my responsibility to teach this child about love and to understand the truth of my teachings within my own physical life. In this realisation, we are indeed each our own teacher in life. I learned we have an ongoing relationship of consciousness with our Spirit where the physical mind is the ‘Parent Mind’ and the 'Spiritual Mind' mind is of the child within us all.  Both have an existence of consciousness. In my Actual Death Experiences, Jesus spoke about there being three conscious levels in our human existence: 1] The Conscious ­(our everyday thoughts, awareness and the logic of rationalisation), 2] The Second Conscious (the Subconscious), the level of protection, absorbing the 'thoughts/images' we do not require during the precise moment in time of conscious intake, and 3] The Consciousness of God (the Higher Consciousness). The Second Conscious acts as a bridge connecting the Human Conscious with the Consciousness of God. The understanding that we are all 'children of God lies in the Consciousness of God being of the Spiritual Mind, the mind of your own Spirit ­ the child within you. And whereas the physical mind requires 'thoughts of knowledge' to develop and mature constructively, the spiritual mind needs to have 'thoughts of love' to grow an abundance of positive energy. In this sense, the human spirit is the 'core' of all man’s emotions. The child within is the key to understanding our 'hearts’, and just as we have a physical brain, so we also have a spiritual brain. 

In life, we become involved in many different types of relationships. The most influential relationships of them all are those that teach us about love. These relationships have three simple needs that must be given and received by the parties involved for the relationship to develop and grow into a strong, well-balanced, healthy and positive one. These three essential needs are 1] Trust, 2] Respect, and 3] Security. If you do not trust your partner, you will never feel you are able to believe in the relationship. If you do not have respect for your partner, you will never put any value on the relationship. If you do not feel secure with your partner, you will never feel safe in the relationship. We give our partners these three needs by our words and actions. When it comes to the relationship between the physical mind and the spiritual mind, we have to give and receive the same three basic needs. The physical mind gives these needs to the spiritual mind by having the thoughts: 1] I trust myself, 2] I respect myself, 3] I feel secure in myself. The spiritual mind will return the needs of the physical mind within the emotions. When we are able to feel the emotion, we will acknowledge the feeling by having more positive thoughts about ourselves: I feel happy; I am proud of myself; I was right to make that decision, etc. The continuing positive thoughts are regenerating the positive emotions which we can then physically feel.

How Do I Teach My Spirit About Love?

Within life we use our physical mind to generate and harness our conscious thoughts, rationalising everything we do, say and believe in. We can be good. We can be bad. We can choose to believe in God. We can be guided by the rules of Atheism. The first realisation to acknowledge is that within our physical lives, we are each our own teacher. In this reality, our physical mind takes on the role of parent/teacher. The spiritual mind is the role of child/student. We all have outside influences in the building of our character, but it is our free will that also denotes how we come to perceive life, as it is our thought process that creates who we are in our status of existence. In having the gift of free will, we ultimately have total control over our own physical lives. We can either live our lives in peace ­ free from emotional suppression or live life with a constant feeling of sadness burdened with self­doubt and feelings of unworthiness. If for whatever reason you find yourself without the ability to use your free will to make the positive changes that you want within your life because of your outside influences, then firstly you must remove yourself from the restriction. For example: If you find yourself suffering from an abusive marriage, you need a time out away from the relationship, so you can assess things freely in your own time and without the outside negative influence; then you can freely reflect upon how you feel about the relationship and what you need to do to make the positive changes you are wanting to. You can decide either to end the marriage or to continue with the relationship. Whatever you do decide, it has to be on your own terms, because it is your own feelings of unhappiness that you are trying to understand and work through. The main point to realise is that it is the thoughts from our physical mind that act as instructions to our spiritual mind, which is why the physical mind has the role of parent/teacher. Unlike within our physical life, where we are usually judged by the actions we perform and the words we speak to others, the spiritual mind only listens and learns from our thoughts. If our thoughts are not the same as the words we speak and opposed to our actions ­ then we are without realisation forcing our Spirit into conflict with the instructions of the teacher, (our physical mind). In the relationship of consciousness, our Spirit is learning every day from what we call the transcript of our life. 

Every good thought and every bad thought is instructing our spiritual growth from the moment we are mature enough to understand and use our own free will. You wouldn't stand in front of a classroom of children as their teacher, and then promptly teach them the opposite of everything written within the textbook you have provided for the lesson; so why verbally say the opposite of what you are actually thinking? We teach our Spirit by having positive thoughts of love, both towards ourselves and towards others. But to ensure our Spirit does not reject our instructions, we must also speak the same words as our thoughts, and our actions should then result from this balance. 

How to Achieve a State of Equilibrium in Life

The power behind the thought is in believing the thought to be true. First, acknowledge you are having positive thoughts about yourself, and accept it is good to have such positive thoughts. It is pointless to have a positive thought such as I trust myself, and then allow a negative one to follow straight after: But do I truly trust myself? How can I trust myself? If we allow a negative thought to follow a positive thought, we are teaching our Spirit to doubt our own teachings, resulting in mixed emotions being created -­ the feelings of good one minute, then doubt the next We are literally confusing our own Spirit, which is denying our spiritual mind one of its three basic needs, trust, respect and security, which will produce feelings of distrust, disrespect and insecurity. When these emotions are picked up by our physical mind, they will simply generate more negative thoughts. The cycle becomes very destructive in our life. Once we have accepted that we do have the ability, which is good, to trust ourselves, to respect ourselves and to feel secure in the decisions we make about our life, then our Spirit will respond to such a thought with the emotion associated with it: the feeling of positivity. 

The Empty Emotional Feeling in Life

The empty emotional feelings in life are created when the thoughts of the physical mind are not being acted upon by the individual creating the thoughts. This causes the individual's Spirit to reject his or her own teachings, and the Spirit does not respond with emotion.


Understanding the Feeling of Emptiness

For example, in a once-loving physical relationship between a man and a woman, the man is now no longer having thoughts of love (I love her) for the woman. He becomes consumed with such thoughts as 'I don't love her any more. I am not happy in this relationship. I don't want to be with her any more...’ etc. However, the man does not end the relationship, and he continues to speak words of love to the woman, (‘Of course I love you!). In the majority of these cases, the reason the man gives himself a reason for not ending the relationship such as that he still feels an attachment towards the woman, and does not want to hurt her, which he believes he will do if he ends the relationship. He is unaware that his sense of attachment is being generated by his thoughts of 'how good the relationship once was ­ his memories', rather than the actual current reality of his relationship with the woman. In continuing to have the thoughts that he no longer wants to be in a relationship with the woman, yet remaining with her, he is not acting upon the truth of his thoughts, his own teachings of love. He is now denying himself one of the basic needs of his Spiritual mind ­ respect for his own love. He will eventually come to start thinking and treating the woman with disrespect. If his spiritual brain – his conscience – is healthily developed, he will come to acknowledge within his thoughts that the way he is thinking and acting towards the woman is wrong, and he will generate feelings of mistrust for his own teaching of love within his Spirit. He is now denying himself another basic need of his spiritual mind: trust for his own love. If the man continues to deny himself (his Spirit) the truth of his thoughts in his actions, his spiritual mind will begin to reject all of his own 'instructions’, - his thoughts of love, and he will soon be unable physically to feel any emotion of love within his heart. The man will only be able to sense a feeling of emptiness within his heart whenever he thinks of love, and he will thus be denying himself the third basic need of the spiritual mind: security. He will no longer feel secure within his own teachings of love, which will eventually have him doubting love or the belief that he is worthy of love, and such feelings will hinder the possibility of his falling in love again, as his actions contravene the truth of his thoughts. 

In continuing with the relationship, he is doing something he doesn't truly want to do. His spiritual mind will emit uncertainty and confusion about the emotions of love. His physical mind will pick up on a sense of disorder in acknowledging that his physical actions countermand the truth of his thoughts. This will then cause the man to question his full understanding of his own love, producing further thoughts of doubt such as, Why am I still with her when I do not love her any more? If the Physical mind (the decision maker ­the aspect of rationalisation) refuses to listen to the spiritual mind and does not act upon the thought, a state of emotional crisis is created: I have no trust in relationships. I do not believe in love. I am insecure in love. Essentially, by his own free will, he has created his own feeling of emptiness within his heart. In understanding the needs of our Spirit now, while we are still in the physical life, we are taking control of both the physical and the spiritual aspects of our life. In understanding the human consciousness and our spiritual origin, we can learn how to improve our own lives. The new­found knowledge can free us from all forms of social and religious domination. We do not have to live in the darkness created by our joint misconceptions of life. We have the ability to repair and rebuild our broken societies. We have the ability to put war and world destruction behind us. We have the ability to live in peace as mankind evolves into a Higher Consciousness for life. Our Spirit is tapped into the spiritual energy within the universe. God is the creator of that same positive energy: His Unconditional Love.
