If the average person was asked to explain what it means to be human, they could say that it involves having a physical body and an intellect or something similar. Therefore, who they are will be a combination of what is going on in their head and what keeps this part of them in place.
By being this way, they are likely to see themselves as merely an observer of what is going on around them. What is going on inside their head is not going to have an effect on what is taking place in the physical world, yet what is going on ‘out there’ will almost certainly be seen as something that influences them.
A Small Impact
This doesn’t mean that they will believe that they don’t have an impact on the world but this can be seen as something that is purely the result of how they behave and what they say. They may even believe that while they can’t control what happens to them, they can control how they respond to what happens.
If so, this will be another way that they are able to have an effect on their life. Taking this into account, compared with those who are rich or famous, for instance, they won’t have a great deal of control over their life.
A Natural Conclusion
If their life generally goes how they want it to go, they could see themselves as being ‘lucky’. Still, when it doesn’t go how they want it to go or something bad happens, they could say that they are ‘unlucky’.
Or, they could say that they are on the receiving end of ‘bad karma’. Fortunately, then, this won’t be what they are used to and it is unlikely to be long until their life goes back to how it usually is.
The Other Side
However, if their life generally doesn’t go how they want it to go, they could see themselves as being ‘unlucky’ or as experiencing ‘bad karma’. When something good does happen, they are likely to be very surprised and they might wonder how long it will last.
Due to being so surprised and perhaps fearing that it won’t last, they might not be able to enjoy what is taking place. Sadly, they will be used to experiencing misery and hardship and experiencing the opposite will be abnormal.
Plenty of Company
Now, regardless of whether they can relate to the former or the latter, they are likely to find that there are plenty of people who are in the same boat. Thanks to this, they could believe that just about everyone experiences life as they do.
If they are generally ‘lucky’, it could be as though someone or something ‘out there’ likes them and if they are generally ‘unlucky’, it could be as though someone or something ‘out there’ is punishing them. Nonetheless, what if there is more to them than they believe and how ‘lucky’ or ‘unlucky’ they are depends on what is going on for them?
This would mean that there is more to them than what is taking place in their mind and they are not merely an observer of reality. What this comes down to is that along with their conscious mind, they also have an unconscious mind.
There may have been at least one moment in their life when they have heard of this before but what is clear is that hearing about something is one thing; truly understanding the implications of it is very different. It’s the difference between understanding a concept and actually experiencing something.
A Small Part
When it comes to their conscious mind, this is just a small part of who they are or their own consciousness. This part of them is just the tip of the iceberg, with most of who they are being hidden.
Then again, it could be said that their body is their unconscious mind and so this part of them is not actually hidden – only what is held in this part of them is. But, if their point of awareness is mainly in their head and they don’t have a good connection with their body, this part of them can still be very much out of their reach.
A Pool of Information
This part of them will be made up of, along with other things, the feelings and thoughts their conscious mind has repressed. Their mind will have forgotten about these elements but their body will know all about them.
Yet, even though their mind has forgotten about them, what is held below their level of awareness will have an impact on their physical, mental and emotional health and it will influence what they do and don’t experience. In other words, what is taking place at this level will play a big part in what they are resonating.
Below the physical nature of both them and their reality, will be energy that is vibrating at a certain frequency. This is why it will seem as if what is taking place internally is separate from what is taking place externally, hence why what is going on within them won’t seem to impact what is going on ‘out there’ and they will just be observing reality, yet this is just an illusion.
In reality, they are not truly separate from anyone or anything, which is why what is going on within them will influence what is going on around them. The feelings that they are aware of, in addition to the feelings that they are not aware of, will primarily define what they are resonating and, therefore, what they can and can’t experience.
What this illustrates is how powerful they, and their fellow human beings, are. However, if someone has been heavily ‘dumbed down’ and sees themselves as purely an observer of their reality and life is then seen as something that happens to them, what has just been said can seem like a load of nonsense.
If someone, who is in this position, was to be open their mind and started to clean out the junk that is in their unconscious mind/body, started using their thoughts and imagination to experience ‘positive’ feelings and took inspired action, they would probably gradually come to see how powerful they are. Their materialistic view of reality is also likely to fall away.
