Hello, I have been having a hard time grasping the difference between pure objective/active consciousness within the dream, as well as in meditation. If when we are sleeping and we see a person, whether we know them or not, is that always a projection of our subconscious. Or can one's own consciousness be influenced or contacted by another person or some higher power. How do you know what is a projection of the ego and what is real. Just as in meditation! I can sit there and imagine myself with my mother goddess and it can seem pretty real, even leave a memory but I created that illusion. It did not really happen! If so then life is all about creating reality with the imagination right? I hear so many people say they saw this and that during meditation but they are just delusional or no? I have listened to many of the podcasts and he says say this mantra, contact this master, or concentrate on this force. That's indicating that you are calling a force outside or inside your consciousness to help you? If I have no concept of that force then I'm creating and illusion. I would really appreciate some simplification on these matters. Thank you.

There are three steps or processes we must analyze in relation to spiritual experience:
  • Imagination - perception of imagery or impressions
  • Inspiration - recognition of symbols
  • Intuition - comprehension
Imagination occurs in self-observation, meditation, or dream yoga experience. This is the perception of imagery, sounds, and the impressions of life within a state of alert novelty.

The next necessary step is the flash of momentary illumination, inspiration derived from the recognition of something new, spontaneous, instantaneous, and vivifying within our perception. This occurs when we see something in a new way, whether in an image, a sound, an experience in self-observation, dream yoga, or meditation. This is inspired knowledge, when we understand that there is a profound significance to a given experience or symbol that arises in meditation.

What comes next is intuition, comprehension of that given experience or symbol in relation to your everyday life. Intuition is knowing without the deliberation or mentation of the intellect.

Study the chapter on Imagination, Inspiration, and Intuition in Tarot and Kabbalah and Fundamental Notions of Endocrinology and Criminology by Samael Aun Weor. This describes how to differentiate between illusory perceptions and conscious experience of the divine through the awakening of objective clairvoyance.

Joyful in hope, suffering in tribulation, be thou constant in thy prayer.

Benedictis, qui venit in nomine Domini. Osanna in excelsis.
