Our minds are capable of knowing indescribable colors that bias our perceptions of events in our lives and may often lead us to crippling belief systems that disenfranchise us from our ideal destinies by teaching us to disable our powers of manifestation, powers with which we all create our lives.|
Modern color theory includes the widely accepted belief that specific different colors are intimately related with specific different mental or emotional states.
Many different color interpretation scales have been suggested, and while they seem to agree in their broad outlines, they often seem to contradict one another in their details.
This is because the colors of the minds of each person"s individual perceptual filters weigh their perceptions of specific colors differently in emotional tones and cognitive associations, such that each observer"s perceptions of colors becomes unique unto themselves.
Nonetheless, we can examine the collective beliefs about colors and their influences on our psyches and learn to use these patterns of observed relationships to apply color for magickal use in the arts of healing, divination, and transformation. (See footnote)
The colors of the mind tell the story of our cognitive development. The energy frequencies ascend as we evolve spiritually and cognitively. Each discrete range of these frequencies represents a group of life lessons that we must learn to master to achieve whatever destinies we most aspire to, destinies we must ultimately learn to manifest for ourselves.
It is the purpose of magick to initiate you into the mysteries of your own existence, to help you thoroughly explore who you are, not only in your material, phenomenological worlds, but also in your spiritual worlds, spiritual worlds that are the ultimate source of your powers to manifest your own individual destinies.
Occult systems of hidden knowledge all focus on the same subject, you. You are the point of all occult writings and teachings. Your personal spiritual growth and cognitive development are the most important things in your life, from the point of view of all truly dedicated occult teachers.
Why are you so important?
In occult philosophy, you are the ultimate creator of all of your perceptions. No one can be more important to yourself than you are. This does not mean you should be vain. Each person, in context to themselves, must always be the most important person in the worlds they manifest for themselves.
No one other than yourself can ever know what your truth may really be. No matter whether you subscribe to a commonly shared collective truth, or whether you have embarked on defining truth for yourself, as you see it, your perceptions of what may be true or false are always unique to yourself, always.
The colors of the mind are your tools for learning to analyze these truths and describe them for yourself more precisely.
However-much we may love our families, friends, neighbors, peers, and communities, if we do not make our own wellbeing our number one priority, then we will suffer from our self-neglect. To the degree to which we suffer from our self-neglect we must make everyone whom we love suffer with us. To the degree to which we fail to rely on ourselves, we must then become a burden to others around us.
That is not a healthy state of affairs.
However, as we become more adept at understanding the colors of our own minds, we may learn to empower ourselves to transcend the limitations we create for ourselves with our personal perceptual biases. We may learn to see our lives in terms of more open possibilities rather than closed opportunities.
We all color our perceptions of our worlds with beliefs and attitudes that define us by the limits we place on ourselves. Our egos become dependent on the subtle ways we color our minds" perceptions so that even when we are sometimes mistaken, we choose to cling to crippling beliefs and to repeat patterns of behavior that have consistently failed to solve our problems in the past.
As we analyze the origins of our discolored perceptions and the underlying motives that maintain our dependencies upon belief systems that are often only half-truths at best, we advance our abilities to understand the patterns of traps with which we sabotage our own lives. We learn to empower ourselves to make fundamental changes in how we think, how we feel, and how we respond to situations in the worlds we manifest around us where we have consistently failed to live up to our own dreams and ideals in the past.
Our minds color events in many subtle ways. As we re-examine past events our predilections to prejudice our perceptions with the colors of our minds continue to reinforce the initial distortions we have created in our perceptions. Our memories become increasingly more unreliable the more we review them because we reiterate our biases with each re-examination, further entrenching what we prefer to believe by further sacrificing the accuracies of our recollections.
In this manner, people who appear to be inclined to obsessive-compulsive behaviors, people who constantly re-examine events in their lives to fuel their frustrated emotions, are particularly susceptible to delusions that may become increasingly paranoid if the emotional issues they are compensating for by applying their perceptual biases are based on anger or fear.
Moreover, while these high-risk individuals may be more susceptible to crippling delusions than many other people, all people remain at risk of destroying their own lives with their own perceptual biases.
The limitations inherent in the ways we learn to discolor our perceptions and then define our lives by our own mistaken biases set us apart from the most important people in our lives, they help us alienate ourselves from our families, friends, neighbors, peers, and communities. They set us apart from opportunities to improve our lives by trying to protect us from painful disappointments.
Our fears of being hurt, rejected, or betrayed train us to color our perceptions in ways that encourage us to avoid any circumstances in which we have been hurt in the past. Our avoidance behaviors become so deeply habituated or engrained that we may ritualistically avoid doing the things we most need to do in order to nurture ourselves and become healthier. Our failures to succeed at these tasks in the past create a sense of despair that we have learned to nurture and maintain by re-examining our mistakes and re-enforcing our definitions of ourselves and our lives as failures.
We learn by trial and error better than by example.
Before we may successfully learn by example, we must learn to trust. There is no one more deserving of our trust than ourselves, ever.
You are the most trustworthy person you can ever rely upon, even if you know you are a liar or a deceiver. It takes a leap of faith to learn to trust anyone other than yourself deeply enough to accept the examples of other people"s lives and the lessons they have learned, and then apply them to yourself.
Until then, you will learn primarily by trial and error; you will inevitably make many mistakes.
Regardless of how many mistakes you may make, the biggest mistakes we may make are the ways in which we learn to deceive ourselves, the ways in which we learn to limit ourselves by what we choose to believe about ourselves and the worlds we manifest around us.
We have a birthright that can raise us all up to the status of immortal gods and goddesses, but first we must solve the mysteries of the colors of our minds so that we may resolve to change our minds and to heal our lives.
