Change Unhealthy Patterns – How the Quantum Qualities of Consciousness Can Help Us (1)
Patterns of consciousness govern every aspect of our lives and are at the core of what we see, think, feel and do. They are the filters through which we perceive the reality we experience. Our ability to respond to the world more objectively and to function in truly healthy ways is obscured by them.
Patterns inhibit natural processes of conscious thinking and decision-making that should naturally (and by design) be based on our true, authentic self, which ends up being hidden by these patterns instead. Therefore, they detract us from our completeness as an individual and inhibit the manifestation of our true and highest potential.
These patterns are actually quantum in nature and are created as a result of invisible, “energetic information” which we ourselves generate, and also receive, assimilate and process. They operate at deep levels of the consciousness, so we are typically unaware of their existence or effects, without a greater degree of self-awareness or self-realisation.
We have been conditioned to accept certain personality traits as “just the way we are.” They are thought of as being permanent, a demonstration of our patterns. These patterns manifest in an infinite number of ways and are unique to the individual.
They can be recognised by the attributes or qualities we display in our approach to life – in our choices, behaviour, relationships, activities and our health.
A few of the hallmark signs that our patterns are at work are in circumstances where we:
– React to our experiences with strong emotions;
– Feel stuck in our lives and have difficulty seeing a way out of our problems;
– Continually attract people and relationships that do not serve us in positive ways;
– Are in poor health (mental or physical) or have chronic health conditions;
– Feel it is too difficult or unnecessary to change the way we are;
– Are in denial about our issues and challenges.
A plethora of adjectives are used to describe these qualities, and the manifestation of patterns, such as judgement, intolerance, blame, impatience, self-obsession, victimhood, stubbornness, indifference, self-righteousness, control, co-dependence, dishonour, or selfishness, to name a few. Upon open and honest self-reflection, it becomes apparent that each of us, to some degree or other, has patterns at play in our lives.
Patterns Become a Deceptive Controlling Force
Patterns are formed naturally throughout the course of our lives when information that describes our experiences is received, processed and used in the same way repeatedly by us. Thoughts and emotions, particularly those that are negative, self-limiting or biased, repeatedly circulate through our minds and bodies.
They become fixed ways of dealing with any incoming information, and we use them so frequently and consistently that we become habituated by them. Existing patterns give rise to new patterns. As they persist and grow throughout adulthood, patterns form a complicated, interconnected network of information that is behind every decision and judgement we make, every action we take. They are thoroughly ingrained or entrenched as a part of who we have inadvertently become. We are controlled by their influence instead of by our natural states of being, which involve a more complete and accurate picture of reality and sense of our true self.
Until we make a concerted effort to understand and transform patterns of consciousness, we are predisposed to experiencing problems and exhibiting less than ideal approaches to life, over and over again. Patterns are particularly insidious because they become fixated in us as they create preferential nerve circuits. In this way, the same pathways are always selected by us when we respond to any situation.
Although invisible to us, from a quantum perspective, they have a matter (physical) based component. If we were able to view the quantum energy field (i.e. the aura or light body), that surrounds us, patterns might look a bit like indelible marks or etchings in a pane of glass. Because patterns are made up of incoherent energetic information, they represent unnatural anomalies or disturbances in the overall harmony of our field.
This is one of the reasons why external approaches to our problems tend not to work so well and aren’t always a permanent fix. We can’t just take a meditation or yoga class or get a personal coach to suggest ways for us to improve. If we have experienced chronic health problems, the presence of unresolved, imbedded patterns is often why our condition doesn’t improve and we can’t heal.
No matter what we do, patterns of the consciousness are an internal issue that cannot be fixed from the outside. It is impossible to make true and lasting change in our lives through action alone without understanding WHAT we are thinking, feeling or doing, and WHY we might be manifesting these patterns. It is critical to understand the internal information that is behind them.
The Quantum Nature of Consciousness
So that we can appreciate the true nature of our patterns more fully, it is important to understand a little about consciousness. Consciousness is everywhere in the universe – it is in everything. From a quantum perspective, consciousness is a field. A field is something objectively present in nature, an invisible integrated medium containing energy, matter and information. As a field, consciousness is capable of interacting with observable matter (including the human being as an object in the field) and can influence its form, development and function. In other words, consciousness, to a large degree, makes us who we are and defines our reality.
On the human level, consciousness is a manifestation of two aspects:
The information content of our internal reference system, or in quantum terminology, our “event history,” which is stored as a dynamic record in the field in a unique way. The information is being created unconsciously and continuously by us throughout our lives (including past lives) as a result of the “states” we have already produced and will continue to produce as we respond to various stimulus in our external environment. These states are ongoing responses (i.e. reactions, discernments or determinations), and as they occur repeatedly they become embodied in this reference system.
The information generated by the inter-relationship between aspects of our true self and our consciousness, when they operate within us inseparably. This, in a broad sense, is the enduring aspect of our identity that describes “who we are” at a deep level, and it is also stored in this field. As a unity and a special form of information, together these two aspects govern our body, our energy and our life.
Consciousness Receives, Stores and Transmits Quantum Information
More specifically, every conscious object in the field of consciousness, including us, is influenced by the information in the field, and at the same time is contributing to the information in the field. We are in constant communication with this field by invisibly transmitting information about our states (from our reference system and who we are) to the field, where it is recorded as a quantum hologram.
The hologram is like a recording device, created by the interference of waves emitted by conscious objects entangled within the field. Essentially, waves are just a form of frequency information. Therefore, the quantum hologram is a recording and enduring memory of everything that has ever occurred in the field. It is an evolving energetic record of information about every objective, subjective and physical experience we (and all other conscious objects) have ever had. In return, we are drawing in and receiving information from this record that we translate through our consciousness to define ourselves and our reality.
Our consciousness is the means by which we interpret this information. When patterns are present they will dictate how the consciousness functions. They govern how the information is “encoded” by us, in other words, how we receive, read and translate the information to generate the responses we have, which are characterised by our thoughts, actions, and even our state of health.
Consciousness uses energy as its vehicle to manifest its influences both on physical and non-physical levels – it is what connects the information contained in the field to our minds and bodies. Under the influence of the brain and the nervous system, consciousness is undergoing interactions as a very fine form of energy which infuses them. Within the body, the information carried by energy is conveyed and influences us in a quantum way via our quantum energy fields and energy channels (meridians).
