(recommended reading prior to reading this article – Karma Building?)

So now that we know what we are actually building, we can focus a little more on the actual thing we are building.  Memories.

How do we make sure that the memories we gather will actually have the desired results, and cause the future design of desire.  Though manipulation of this is no simple task, with a better understanding of the construct of the Karmic design memories, it would be easier to start setting our own direction.

What is a memory ?

A memory, and for the purpose of this article, refers to some past event /s that you as a person has personally experienced and / or gained knowledge of.  There is no requirement that you should be able to call this into consciousness for it to be there. And as such you are likely to have a lot of memories that you have forgotten about.  Of course forgetting about this in consciousness does not mean that you have actually lost the memory.  It simply means that you can not call it into consciousness whenever you choose to, easily.

What does a memory consist of?

Here is where it gets a little more interesting.  A memory consist of any combination of images, sounds, smells, sensations, tastes and pretty much anything your body can cook up as something you can experience.  A memory however does not have any logic, or rationalization of any kind.  It merely behaves like a very sophisticated movie camera that records all your life onto tape.  One which can record a feeling of anger, or love, and remember by association what caused it.  One which can record the formula you used to calculate an answer, as well as the answer.  However not able to do the actual calculation.

The memory does not have the ability to think about, rationalize or even justify itself or it’s existence.  This is a task which and only be performed by you conscious mind.  All the memory is for is to remember.  And the “place” where we store all this? Well the subconscious mind of course.

This now offers us an opportunity to examine the basic construct of the mind.  There are essentially two compartments.  The conscious (where we work things out) and the subconscious (where we put stuff we need to remember).

The next step is to understand how communication happens between, and with, the conscious and subconscious mind.  And now we have to consider 3 aspects.

·                     The subconscious mind gets communication mainly directly from the body, and specifically including our physical senses.  Especially since this is where our memories actually come from, for the most part.  This even includes when you are sleeping or under anesthesia. The body still has senses after all.

·                     The subconscious mind also gets association memories printed into the memories themselves. 
Eg. A memory includes an image of a delightful pie, just freshly baked, and still warm.  The smell of the pie wafting in the air. 
Referencing this example, any one of the elements of this memory could be the actual associative bit. (we call it the “key” memory) It just depends on what you experience at a given moment, that fits into this memory and that will make you recall the whole memory.  Of course it is likely that one or two of the elements are stronger (eg smell in this case would probably be it), and therefore it is likely that this will be the trigger for recalling this memory from the conscious mind.

·                     So how do we pull anything into consciousness.  What is the method by which our subconscious mind selects which memory to output.  2 ways :

o        The conscious mind sends a message to the subconscious calling for some bit of information.  A bit of information which would be found by what ever key element it can be remembered by.  (Can you remember the face of a friend when you hear their name?)

o        Your body experiences something which matches, or resembles closely something from your past.  “You walk into the room with the smell of the pie.  Does your mouth not water inadvertently?”.  Getting the nice smell you probably associate this with a memory of consuming a similar pie, which you thoroughly enjoyed, and so on...

The only tool that your memory offers for referencing is simply association. It would also be noticeable that for every memory that we have, there is at least one key memory element, which would make it possible for us to remember a particular memory.  And the stronger the key, the easier it gets to recall this into consciousness.  And of course if the key is an obscure one, it becomes significantly more difficult to recall a particular memory.

And now.  We are able to move forward and start getting better organized for the future.
