WARNING: This is a long article, fulla gems and nuggets, so make sure you make time.
One of the greatest creations in The Universe, besides majestic planets like Mother Earth and powerful energy sources like our quantorettal sun, is the human subconscious. It is in direct communication with The Universe, which suggests it also communicates collectively with the subconscious of others.
I’ve studied the human subconscious, mostly in myself, since I was a girl, wondering what inner engine drove me to do the things I did. I didn’t have to think about doing certain things, I just did them. Sometimes they were rational and positive; other times, not so. Hey, I’m a hot-blooded, aggro surferchick.
One item I discovered over the years: there was a clear line between what I did consciously and how my mind functioned subconsciously.
And when I went to sleep each night, I knew there was a whole different creature that came alive and took me on endless journeys through space and time, introducing me to new thoughts, ideas, beliefs and ways of doing things in my life.
My CHILD, Finally Discovered
Many years ago, I woke up one morning and scrambled out of bed to write something down. Whatever was in my head at that moment had to come out and it wasn’t going to wait for my bus driver, my typist, to take dictation. It was coming in a flood and that was that. When I got to my notepad, my hand started scribbling things down. I wasn’t paying attention to what I was writing, I just took it on faith that I had to do this.
After I was done autowriting, I looked at what had emerged: a single word, along with details about each letter of the word. It was an acronym, CHILD:
C: the little Child in you, the curious wide-eyed being who sees the world without filters and preconceived notions about anything. A little sponge that senses things with wonder and awe.
H: the true Heart in you, the purely subjective part, filled with every conceivable emotion. Sees the world smartly but with passion and feeling.
I: your Intuition or information-gathering system, the sensory apparatus that receives every possible stimulus in The Universe, much like a radio receives radio signals to produce spoken word and songs.
L: the cold, stainless-steel Logic that sees the world purely objectively, like a robotic computer that takes in and analyzes data in a totally impartial and neutral way, without emotion or feeling of any kind.
D: the little Demon in you, that mischievous entity that plays pranks and does impish things. Can sometimes be very destructive and hurtful, so it’s kept in check by the other entities.
These ethereal beings all comprise the human subconscious, which is the true engine that drives each and every one of us in our daily lives.
They all work together and, depending on how one’s DNA is wired, sometimes for good and sometimes for evil. I will not get into the moral implications of good and evil, only stating that they exist in all of us to some extent and, in others, comprise their whole being. Sociopaths and psychopaths are an example.
Destiny, Celestiophysics, Subism
We can choose to communicate with our child, or we can ignore it and just float through life, going wherever it takes us. I contend that we do have a destiny. Each of us, when we are conceived (not born), have a certain imprint from those celestial bodies that mediate and modulate our behaviors; in fact, everything we do in life. This imprint is physically imparted onto our DNA when it first forms chemically in that single cell that will later become an individual being.
When we are first stimulated by The Universe, using celestiophysics, we are then given a map of destiny that propels us through life.
Some of us follow this map without much thought. Others, like me, question it each day and consciously make a choice whether to follow that map or go “off-map” and do something that we were not initially programmed to do.
These thoughts bring me to my personal philosophy, Subism. It holds that the human subconscious is direct communication with The Universe, and that celestial bodies (planets, stars, all forms of matter, energy and unknown entities) directly and indirectly influence all life on earth. The philosophers of old weren’t familiar with celestiophysics, so they formulated their own ideas about how humans operate and function, and what makes us do the things we do.
I do not subscribe to or practice the philosophies of others, because they are all inaccurate, misleading and often destructive. Those people were completely ignorant of how The Universe actually works, so they based their life’s work on false assumptions that built an unsteady foundation, a mountain of detritus millions of people have followed and worshiped for millennia.
I suggest that we do all the things we do because of the strong, inexorable influences of celestiophysics and The Laws of Creation and The Universe.
Use Your Subconscious to Understand Yourself and Accomplish Your Goals in Life
Dreams and dreaming.
Sometimes you may not recall a dream, but your subconscious is actively dreaming, sending little (and giant) messages up to your conscious self to do certain things, avoid other things. Dreams are one method the CHILD uses to communicate with your conscious self.
Interestingly, when your CHILD presents a dream to you, it does so in very rudimentary language, in the language of a child.
We dream in metaphors and symbols and motifs, not in complete film-like visions. This method of communication is as old as The Universe itself and is very effective. One must learn to accurately interpret the messages before any meaningful action can be taken.
Our CHILD only knows one method of talking to our conscious self, and that is in the language of a child, a small voice that expresses itself using little vignettes that represent small words and actions. I’ve never heard of anyone dreaming in the language of an adult. Never. If someone tells you that they do in fact dream this way, it’s not a deep-sleep dream but a lucid dream, one you actually control because you’re partly conscious and are speaking or visualizing in the language of an adult. Again, one must be at least partially conscious during lucid dreaming.
During a very difficult time in my life some years back, I had a recurring dream: I was sitting in a bus filled with other people. I wasn’t talking or interacting with anyone, just sitting alone and minding my own business. Then the bus suddenly filled with water, as if we’d just plunged into the middle of an ocean. No one around me moved an inch or spoke anything to me or to each other. They all just sat there as the bus filled with water. I looked around, saw stone-cold faces on my fellow passengers, and tried frantically to get out.
And then the dream went lucid, where I could actually manipulate the dream in a semi-conscious state. I changed the dream so I got out of that sinking bus, drove to my fave restaurant in LA, and drowned myself in many craft beers. Much better way of drowning, you ask me.
Since I had already known that my CHILD was responsible for communicating with me, I then figured out a way to interpret what she was trying to tell me. I didn’t get it at first, so the dream stayed with me each night for a week or so, until I woke up and listened better. To interpret my dream, which was in the absurdly simple patois of a child, I used the thoughts, ideas and words of a four year old.
When I used this method, interpreting the dream in a child’s voice, the dream became clear: “I can’t get out and no one will help me.” Sounds silly or even simplistic, but it is accurate.
The very day I made this discovery, my life at that time changed dramatically. Allow me to share with you what actually happened to bring on the dream: I had just gone through a painful breakup with my partner and was destitute on all levels. The friends we had when we were together all became his friends, and I was left with no one to talk and share my thoughts with, or to grieve with, let alone get some help from.
The dream told me that I was in a world of hurt and no one was coming to my aid, even when I actively asked for help. In the real world, I was on my own. I have a term for that: yoyo, which means “you’re on your own” when things get really tough for you. I was yoyo for a long time, until I realized what was actually happening, then when I figured out my temporary predicament, I was able to change how I thought, how I acted, and consequently the actions I took to climb out of that dark hole, from inside that sinking bus.
My CHILD knew what was going on all along and it tried to tell me, using the only language it knew—the small, yet significant, language of a sweet babe.
Now That We Know We Have This Special Gift Inside Us, What’s Next?
The first thing I recommend: learn how to feed it properly, to nurture it. You would do this with a human child, wouldn’t you? Your CHILD is even more important. It’s the entity within yourself that guides you through every moment of your entire life. How could you not want to nurture such a special being?
Your CHILD is energetic and rambunctious, has a voracious appetite for new adventures and actions, so get out in the world and do stuff. Travel to new places, meet new people, eat new foods, explore new vistas. If you cannot afford to go to Europe or Africa, then explore your own town or city, or maybe drive to the next city or state and see what’s up there. If those things are not in your current budget, then find a way to make it happen, now that you know your subconscious needs these things.
Your CHILD loves to run and jump and play around, so get out and exercise your body, even if it’s a long walk or hike. If you’re going to be a sedentary writer, then your CHILD will eventually rebel. Yes, I do know some overweight writers who do well, but they don’t last too long. Unfortunately, they die young and the being that dies first is their CHILD. This explains in part how people sometimes grow cold and distant, and they lose their humanity. In reality, they’re losing the most important part of them—their subconscious. They are also losing the ability to communicate with the most important entity in their lives: The Universe.
The child inside you needs stimulation, and the world around you provides just that, so please take full advantage of your atmosphere and make it a daily routine to get out of your office and home and see different and stimulating sites, absorb what you sense all around you, roll in the grass, get dirty and make mud pies . . . something cool.
There’s a new movement out there that is telling all of us to “ground” ourself with the earth. Actually get down on the bare ground and let it touch your skin. Mother Earth is one giant healing mechanism, so find out more about grounding and then implement your new-found knowledge.
What else? Take trips to local stores, shops, museums, businesses that produce something interesting to see designed or in the process of being built. Feed your imagination ’til its cup runneth over. There are no penalties for overfilling. When your CHILD has had enough, she will tell you.
Go to shows, films, performances and watch the beautiful artwork of people who are just like you: they have a dream, they design and build it, then they do whatever it takes to implement it. Seeing the art of others is inspiring on all levels, especially when they’re actually creating it. Go to the local hardware store and look at all the tools and items that are used to build things. Visit a restaurant and see how they prepare their meals.
What a grand experience to observe artists designing and building artwork! It’s not unlike what I do when I create my own work, be it an article or a book. In fact, watching other artists may be the most inspiring thing you can witness for yourself when you go out on these excursions. I love watching glass-blowers. Especially the truly great ones who produce the world’s finest artisan glasswork, those Murano artists in Italy. Wao, they’re amazing to watch. When I’m done witnessing world-class art in motion, I leave with an all-body tingle. What an inspiration!
How Do You Listen to Your CHILD When She Speaks to You?
First, let’s consider when your CHILD is actually trying to communicate with you. An example: you’re sitting in a chair, writing away and you get this nagging voice inside your head that says you need a small pillow at your lower back. Don’t ignore it. This is your subconscious telling you something: I want to feel comfortable when I share something important with you. That’s like a message from the highest power in The Universe.
Those little voices that creep up at all times of the day and night are your CHILD trying to tell you something. Listen to those voices. When you hear the calling of your subconscious, please pay attention to what it is trying to say, then, provided the command is a reasonable one, please act on it.
Once you start listening to your CHILD, she will say, “Thank you for listening to me!”
And, from that point forward, if you continue to listen to your subconscious, she will give you more and more great knowledge and information that will not only enhance your life, but also teach you The Laws of Creation and how to use them in everyday life.
Communicating with your CHILD is not that challenging. Again, if it tells you to do something and you do it, then you’re effectively communicating with her. Keep doing it. And when you go to bed at night (or during the day, depending on your lifestyle and schedule), ask out loud and write down some questions or topics you want her to mull over. The more you listen to her, the more she will respond and provide the information you need. You can train her to give you more and more information by asking questions, writing them down, then sleeping on them. Keep asking the same questions over and over until you get what you want or need.
When asking questions or asking for assistance or help (yes, there is a difference!), please be kind to your subconscious. Remember, it is a child and understands when you are being impatient or downright tedious. You know how people say to treat yourself kindly and gently? They’re really saying you should be kind and gentle to the most important creature inside your head: your subconscious.
The reason I suggest you say what you want out loud is because when you speak it and hear your own words, your brain stores and processes that information in different areas, which work in unison to come to your aid. When you physically write it down, that too is stored and processed in another part of your brain. When you read your own words, that is also stored and processed in yet a different part of your brain. These working areas are also complex computing centers that help to enhance what you desire and wish for, and they help your CHILD make those wishes and dreams come true. Each reinforces the other that becomes a multiplicative effect: it strengthens all bonds and allows for growth and further learning.
Training your CHILD involves all the above steps, plus actively talking to it, and not just before you go to sleep. You can have meaningful conversations with her, not only asking questions but also asking for guidance and assistance.
The more you communicate with her, the more she responds and with better and more relevant information to help and guide you accurately.
The only time my CHILD has failed me is when I have ignored her. That fact, in itself, I find fascinating and compelling. My CHILD has never steered me in the wrong or in a negative direction. Ever. When I’ve chosen to go off-map, then sometimes I’ve gotten into trouble. Yes, I’ve learned a lot from those experiential experiences, especially when off-map, but I’ve also paid a steep price for venturing off my universal path of destiny.
Talk With The Individual Components of Your CHILD
It takes time and effort, and you can do it. I’ve often consulted my Logic element to get an objective view on a particular subject. And when I’ve needed to discuss something about my love life, I’ve talked mostly to my Heart. Having five separate ultra-complex computer modules inside your head is like having a team of experts at your beck and call. You must treat that team nicely and with great respect or they will ignore you and your queries. Your CHILD will never be vengeful and send you down a wrong path; only your conscious self does that. The worst you can expect from your subconscious is silence, and that is the most crushing thing that could happen to your beautiful mind, not having the backing of one of the mightiest beings in The Universe.
When your CHILD fails to talk to you or communicate with you, something is very wrong. Remember that she is just that: a child, so she needs special attention.
Like I said, she will never steer you wrong, but she may get pouty and ignore you. If she does, ask what’s going on. When you go to bed, write down that question, plus a few others: Are you okay? Have I done anything to make you ignore me? What am I doing wrong here? How can I get back on track? Will you please assist me?
The times I’ve had my CHILD go silent, they were when I was not treating myself well. Be kind and gentle to yourself, and your CHILD will thank you in ways you cannot even imagine now.
When you learn how to communicate with your subconscious, you will have taken the first step toward learning about The Laws of Creation and The Universe, and will then begin a new lifelong journey of amazement, inspiration and wonder.
