Lesson #32

By Venus Souls

Some of you may know that I studied astrology for a while. There is always something mystical surrounding astrology and zodiac signs and we all repeat what they say like parrots without truly understanding what any of it really means and how it works or why does it mean this or that. How could it be that there are only 12 zodiac signs and an infinite variety of characters within each sign? Yet there are people accepting this ludicrous idea and plan their daily lives and relationships according to it! So I just had to get to the bottom of it once and for all.

It is your decisions, and not your conditions, that determine your destiny..”

Anthony Robbins

I took a few courses and read a lot of books. My friends were impressed to say the least at how accurate my readings were. In the end, I recognised that it was still an imperfect way to study who we are and why we are here. What I personally took from it was a simple but powerful concept: “As above so is below”. Meaning that as the stars and planets align themselves and move and change, these movements will be reflected within our selves and our lives. It is no different and beautifully complements Carl Jung’s assertion: “As within so without”. In other words, our realities are projections of our psyche makeup. In metaphysical terms, we receive the exact same energy that we put out into the world.

What this meant to me was that everything – absolutely everything – is a reflection or accurate manifestation of the spectrum of energies you are vibrating at. Your reality is the manifestation of your thoughts, beliefs, principles, characteristics, values – your overall blueprint. Your blueprint vibrates at a specific frequency and that frequency is matched in your reality. If you wanted to improve your reality, you have to consistently and for a prolonged period of time make the decision and follow it up with actions to change your frequency and vibrate your energies at the level you wish to be. This means changing your blueprint in significant ways, including your core beliefs, emotional patterns and thoughts. This often requires a complete reinvention of who you are and what you stand for if you want to significantly change your life.

In Jungian terms, we project onto the world what we hold within our psyche. If we love or admire someone, we do so because we see parts of our psyche which we accept in them or we aspire to develop that part within us. If we develop dislike towards someone, it’s because we see in them the reflection of our darker traits which we hate to acknowledge or refuse to accept.

(Wo)man’s mission on earth seems to be to figure out who they are and what does it all mean. All the sciences and arts are the result of our search for meaning. And in the process of learning who we are, we learn how we connect as a race and as a species and how we connect to the rest of the universe. From the atom to the solar system and beyond, we witness the miracle that is the intricate sophistication of a creation that we still remain infinitely ignorant of – the more we learn the less we know.

And so our myths, our stories, our religions, even our political and social systems, all attempt to organise and unite us against the fear of chaos which is most amusing since nothing around us is chaotic. Everything is in perfect rhyme, rhythm and synchronicity working to a divine natural ‘clock’ which measures Balance rather Than time. Chaos and Order are nothing but a mirror reflection of what we hold within ourselves.

If our reality is but a mirror refection of what we hold and carry within ourselves, then it’s us who have the ultimate power to change our reality. Everything we have in our lives is a reflection of our standards. And our standards are a reflection of what we think and believe is possible and what we accept and tolerate. We are where we are based on what we think and based on the behaviour these thoughts produce. 

Steve Jobs once said that his life purpose was “to put a dent in the Universe”. Our reality is the manifestation of our beliefs. We are the creators and designers of our lives.
