Our Life Matrix

Our perceptions and beliefs about ourselves, others, and the world around us stem from our inherent personalities, filtered through past and current influences: familial, generational, cultural, and social.

The perceptions and beliefs we hold can be based on truths, or they can be false and based on Unconscious Influences* we unknowingly hold. *(definition below).

The tendency to allow false perceptions to be created has its roots in Humanity’s past, which we perpetrated without knowing we were doing so.

All of our conscious and Unconscious Influences work together like threads in a patchwork quilt that link the interweaving patterns of how we deal with life—like a matrix that overlays our lives. I call this our Life Matrix.

 This article/blog post is from my book “Your Journey to Peace … “

and here to check out my new books to be shortly published.

  • Our Life Matrix: Is the lens through which we see and navigate the world. Fueled by our heart beliefs, which come from our conscious and Unconscious Influences, our Life Matrix holds all of our underlying perceptions and misperceptions. It supports what we think we need to be and what we think we need to do to be happy, fulfilled, empowered, and to have harmonious relationships. It upholds all of our perceptions—whether they are real or false.

Our Life Matrix can bring about positive or negative experiences for us. We usually develop a dominant Life Matrix, but since living is an organic ebb and flow of thoughts and emotions, we may vacillate between the positive and negative influences of both forces.

If something causes us to react out of character, our heart beliefs cause us to quickly revert to our normal attitudes.

Our Life Matrix will predispose us to deal with life, others, issues, and situations by denying, procrastinating, responding calmly, or by reacting aggressively or passively.

A Positive Life Matrix

Living under the influence of a positive Life Matrix, we may embody optimism, confidence, and hopefulness. We may feel lucky, be fearless, as well as be accepting of others since a positive outlook and our own self-confidence cause us to be non-judgmental.

Our Life Matrix

We could sometimes succumb to arrogance, impatience, or single-mindedness as our personality dictates, but emotional reactions will generally be composed.

Most of our dealings with others will likely be propelled by responses instead of reactions. And as our general outlook is positive, we will quickly return to positive attitudes should we fall into negative ones.

A positive Life Matrix may temporarily shift to a negative one, but we are usually pulled back as our underlying inner belief system holds a positive approach to life.

The same holds true for a negative Life Matrix. We may have times of positivity, but we generally default to the negative. A negative Life Matrix can be shifted more permanently to the positive, albeit with a sincere and conscious effort.

A Negative Life Matrix

If we are living under the influence of a negative Life Matrix, we are often needy. We may tend to be pessimistic, hesitant, doubtful, and feel disadvantaged.

As these attitudes do not invite in desired results we are often frustrated. We blame others for our failures. We may act with aggression, timidity, or passive-aggressiveness, or, vacillate between these ways of dealing with our frustrations.

When we do evoke positive feelings they are usually undermined, as our negative heart beliefs eventually pull us back under their influence.

We may hold a volatile emotional component and will be overtly reactive—instead of being responsive to situations and taking them at face value and without making it all about us and our neediness and/or emotions.

Or, we may respond with seeming passivity, but are internalizing our angers or frustrations keeping our inner world in turmoil. This becomes a vicious cycle, as inner turmoil invites in more of the same.

Our emotional state is very important because it defines who we are now being, which influences what our future holds.

Our Life Matrix

It has only been in the last century or so that psychologists have been able to connect the dots between our Unconscious Influences. and how we experience life.

We often feel that we do not experience enough love in our lives; however, our capacity to truly feel love and to love others is in direct relationship to what is held in our Life Matrix.

Working to create a positive Life Matrix creates self-love and brings love into our life.

Whether from our conscious or unconscious minds, every thought, word, belief, attitude, and action emit a vibration.

To become the cause of our experiences and the creator of our realities—instead of at the effect of negative Unconscious Influences, we must be cognizant of the vibrations we are emitting.

The conscious and unconscious beliefs and life philosophies within our Life Matrix govern everything we think, say, and do and thereby what we invite into our life.

The lens through which we view others and the world around us is how the world will show up for us. We become what we think we are, and we create based on what is held in our Life Matrix.

  • *Our Unconscious Influences: Our thoughts, attitudes, beliefs, and ideas based on past emotional impressions that we unconsciously constructed or appropriated from others, or from past situations. These may have created true positive perceptions about ourselves, others, situations, or the world around us. Or, they may have created negative false misperceptions that have us see ourselves and others through false lenses of separation and division.

Finding Balance: Reconciling Doing and Being

To feel whole, we must love and respect all parts of ourselves, and part of this is finding the balance between doing and being.

When we are doing we are mostly using our mind our intellect, the left side of our brain  the rational, thinking part.

This left side of the brain with its thought processes and rationality is important. It is sort of a task manager. It organizes. Gets things done.

This article/blog post is from my book “Your Journey to Peace … “

See here for About Book … here to Buy Book. (e-book just reduced 40%) … here  to Join my Free Monthly Newsletter, 

Archetypes Act As Conduits to Help Us, and to Strengthen Latent Qualities Within UsOur mind / intellect was intended to be a tool that serves the right side of the brain  where creativity and inspiration come from. To follow through on the ideas that come from the right-brain. However, it has taken front stage. Become more important. Society supports this left-brain way of going about life. Of doing.

We usually have no awareness that our doing is coming from our mind. Often, we simply get trapped in business.

Business lures us away from being in the moment. The subtlety of joy cannot be felt. Inspiration doesn’t get through.

  • When we stay focused on the task at hand – get lost in it – whether a work project or an artistic endeavor we are in our heart-space.
  • When we allow ourselves to become scattered and rush around in the business of what we are doing we often get caught up in any chaos that develops. Our emotions may run amuck. We feel like we are running on empty. These are clues that our mind has taken over.

Being in the moment requires us to be in our heart-space. This is the seat of our soul. Where we get our guidance. Where our inspiration comes from. Being in our heart-space allows us to feel joy.

We can be doing while being, but the doing must be done with reverence. Concentrating on the task at hand. Reveling in it. Finding joy in it. This is how we bring reverence into our every-day lives. For example, playing with the soap bubbles when washing the dishes brings a sense of childlike joy to the job. We are in our heart-space.

Finding Balance: Reconciling Doing and Being

When we do not bring full focus or reverence to our tasks, we are more likely to fall into left-brain mind traps. Mind chatter. Loss of concentration. Scattered unfocussed thoughts. We lose the connection to our heart-space.

Our mind / intellect is supposed to be a tool that follows through on what our inner guidance inspires us to do. However, for most of us our mind / intellect has been running the show  ̶  with the right brain and its creative impulses at the beck and call of the mind.

Gaining control over our emotional landscape will help our mind chatter and unfocused thoughts lessen, allowing creativity and what we were meant to bring about in this life to flow through us.

When we experience a temporary imbalance in our lifestyle, find ourselves worn out and scattered, or lose our ability to feel joy, we should examine what is driving us.

  • Are we so mindlessly involved in the tasks of everyday life that we have no time to appreciate what we have?
  • Completely focused on doing, acquiring, getting ahead, or being successful?
  • Could we be fueled by Unconscious Influences* that drive us?

Are we are always doing – with no time for just being or enjoying the fruits of our successes?

Finding Balance While Growing, Shifting, and Changing

Personal growth causes us to shift and change We start to connect to our True Self. We develop towards becoming our Best Self. While welcoming these necessary changes, we must be cognizant of maintaining balance in our life.

As our life changes, we may take on a new and different endeavor that would require more energetic output. Or, we may become way less busy and not know what to do with ourselves.

Either of these scenarios can cause us to feel off-balance. This is usually temporary. Returning to a state of equilibrium is healthy – emotionally, spiritually, and physically. And it is required to becoming our Best Self.

The optimal point of balance will be different for everyone. Some people go through personal growth and its change effortlessly, others find it difficult and may become unbalanced. Some people will always work hard as it energizes them; others need regular relaxation time to stay energized.

Finding Balance: Reconciling Doing and Being

Finding Balance While Being Open

While opening ourselves up to others and being accepting of them and their attitudes is part of personal growth and understanding, we must ensure that our own energetic bodies are not adversely affected by other peoples’ energetic outputs.

As we evolve and raise our vibrations we are also sensitized energetically. Being around people with negative attitudes or different energetic levels than ours can drain or stress us, and we may begin to feel fatigued, agitated, or energetically flattened.

We are all somewhat misaligned from Source and our True Self. Those of us working on personal growth are addressing this. Many are not. And that is ok.

We are all becoming more conscious at our own pace and on our own timeline. Part of being evolved is understanding this. As is not judging others for where they are on their journey. Still, we have to protect our progress.

As we work through the layers of our emotional world and address any misalignments we may have held, the manifestations of others’ misalignments may actually bother us more than before – just like a smoker who has quit is more sensitive to being around smokers.

So, in our desire to help others we must ensure we do not lose ourselves in their dramas or allow their negative energy to affect us.

Taking the time to investigate the real reason for imbalances in our life can help us avert continuing in a direction that will completely deflate us and ultimately not serve our best interests.

We must remember to:

  • Take time to just be – in the nothingness.
  • Being present in whatever we are doing.
  • Staying in our heart-space. Keeping an open heart.
  • Engage in activities that bring us joy.
  • Keep up the practices we chose to help us along this journey to peace.

We must be cognizant of:

  • The openness necessary for personal growth may invite people into our sphere who drain us energetically.
  • And as we open our heart-space intense passions may arise that cause us to lose our equilibrium.
  • We must be mindful of keeping our energetic balance.

Finding Balance: Reconciling Doing and Being

Society still endorses the mind over the heart – that the right brain and its creativity should be at the beck and call of the mind.

This is changing, but there is much resistance to the heart-space being important as it not yet widely recognized that there is more power and knowledge when we tap into our hearts than in our minds.

The energy that creates universes is held within our hearts. And we tap into this more easily the more we practice just being.

*Unconscious Influences: Thoughts, attitudes, beliefs, and ideas based on past emotional impressions that we unconsciously constructed or appropriated from others. or from past situations. These may have come from our familial, generational, cultural, and/or social backgrounds. These misperceptions are held within our Emotional Bodies and create misperceptions about current situations. They cause us to react inappropriately to situations from neediness, past hurts, or unmet expectations.

Free Will, Our Soul’s Journey, and the Big Picture

Free will is a principle within the universal matrix we exist under and for the most part we get to exercise our free will. For our purposes, this has given us the option to adhere to the qualities of love and unity inherent within the energy of creative force we emerged from, or to not adhere to them.

Our Unconscious Influences Affect True Free Will

Our unconscious influences act upon us without our permission. When under the influence of unconscious influences, we may think and feel we are exercising free will when making choices, decisions, or acting upon an impulse, but we are not truly utilizing the gift of free will,

Unconscious influences can affect our emotions and sensory systems. Neediness may come into play, or unconscious influences such as our default position, protection mechanisms, or perceived needs may override our intentions. This may cause us to act in ways we had not intended. Our good intentions may fall to the wayside.

(This article/blog post is based on concepts in my book Your Journey to Peace, Bridging the Gap Between Religion, Spirituality, Psychology, and Science. Book Synopsis is found here).

Archetypes Act As Conduits to Help Us, and to Strengthen Latent Qualities Within Us

Unconscious Influences Can Derail Conscious Choice

Our good intentions are often overruled by our unconscious influences. For example, we may decide we will be kind and patient to our parent on this visit  ̶  even though the relationship is strained. However, when we get together we blow up or give him or her attitude. Some unconscious influence has overridden our decision to be kind and patient with our parent. Our default position (reactionary state) or a protective mechanism (defensive systems we have built up) may have come into play and our free will and its power for conscious decision is unduly swayed: we were not nice to our parent.

We may decide we want to get healthy, but often succumb to overeating, make unhealthy food choices, or drink too much whenever we feel sad, lonely, angry, or stressed. We may be feeding our neediness or have fallen into poor-me attitudes. This derails us from our desire to get healthy. Unconscious influences or undealt with emotions have hijacked our free will.

Life-lessons, Our Higher Purpose, and Free Will

We all manifested here on earth with lessons to learn this lifetime as part of our soul’s journey. And they are all geared towards us choosing love and its qualities over fear and its qualities. We do have free will to learn  ̶  or not learn  ̶  the lessons put before us at any point in time, however, the specific life-lessons will continue to be presented to us until we do learn them. So, in the long run, we do not have free will regarding the lessons we chose before we incarnated. The details of how they show up in our lives may change, but the general theme remains the same.

For example, if part of our soul’s journey in this lifetime is to learn patience, within our relationships, or at our job, opportunities will come up that will test our patience. We will have free will to choose to exercise patience  ̶  or not to  ̶  within each scenario. However, should we decide not to and leave the relationship or job without learning the lesson, other situations will show up in our life where we are given opportunities to learn patience.

As well as soul lessons, many of us come here with a higher purpose that must be adhered to. And sometimes, certain aspects of our higher purpose cannot be overruled. Its Spirit’s / our higher Self’s job to overlook the process. It gently guides us to fulfill what we came here for.

Free Will, Our Soul’s Journey, and the Big Picture

If what we want or want to do is not congruent to the higher purpose we are to fulfill, we may not get what we want or our attempts to do something counterproductive to it may fail.

For example, our higher purpose may be to do something for society or the Planet and part of our soul’s plan to fulfill this role would be that we would not have children. Our higher Self knows this, and if we are balanced we would not be inclined to want children, However, if something in our upbringing caused us to be needy and this translated into a desperation to have children, it may just not come about.

We never know God’s full plan for our lives. From our limited perspective we may feel we want something that will not ultimately serve us or our higher perspective life-plan, and Spirit may step in.

Even when we attempt to stick to the path of our soul’s journey or life purpose and we start with good intentions, we may still get caught up in situations that derail us. At some point, Spirit may intervene and create situations that put us back on the path.

Depending on the circumstances, and how often and how far we have gotten off-track from the lessons we chose to learn or from our life purpose, unfortunate mishaps, relationship breakups, loss of a job, and even illnesses may be our soul’s way of urging us onto a path we are not adhering to, but that we chose before coming into the world.

I Choose Me; I Choose You

Choosing me means that we are choosing that which endorses our own Best Self to flourish. Choosing you means that we are encouraging your Best Self to come forth.

Choosing Me

I am choosing me when I stand up for myself, speak up for myself, and make myself heard. I am choosing me when I embrace what brings me joy. I am choosing me when I hang around positive, and light-hearted people. I am choosing me when I engage in activities that are uplifting. I am choosing me when I disengage from drama and negativity, and avoid bullies and controllers. However, sometimes there is a fine line between choosing me for our higher good and overindulging our self.

We often think we are choosing me when we get our way or indulge our self. Sometimes this is true, but sometimes it is not. Aggressively pushing our way through life is not really choosing me, as it is not allowing life to flow through us. And it often brings with it consequences.

Choosing to regularly indulge in over eating, over drinking, etc. may feel like we are choosing me, but we are not. Staying up or out too late on a regular basis, or hanging around with “fun” friends but who steer us in wrong directions is not choosing me. These are all quick fixes to help us feel good now, but they do not help us become our Best Self.

Being empowered to ask for or go after what we want in life is part of becoming our Best Self. It is supporting our True Self. Indulging our self to embrace our passions, to celebrate life events or an achievement, or when we have suffered a loss, is also part of becoming or maintaining our Best Self.

However, we must ask for or go after what we want with integrity and not step on others, otherwise we are acting from neediness, being greedy and self-serving, and/or feeding impulses that come from unconscious influences. Acting in these ways does not come from our higher or True Self – they are disempowering attitudes that come from a disconnect with it and a lack of faith in our real worth.

They do not ultimately bring about us becoming the best we can be and aligning with our life purpose, which is where we will find contentment and feel our true worth. This is because one way or another – whether now, soon, or even in the distant future, actions based on greed, aggression or neediness backfire on us.

We are choosing me when we embrace our passions, as we are answering the call of our soul. This is where we will find peace within our self and joy in living. Celebrating life events and our achievements is life-affirming. This encourages us in life.

When we have suffered a major loss in life we have to take the time to mother our self. Loss affects us on many levels. It can zap our joy and our zest for life. It can affect our self-confidence and our faith in the future. Indulging our self until we feel a spark for life return and start to feel empowered again is choosing me.

While going for what we want, embracing our passions, or celebrating life events and our achievements are life-affirming, we must be careful that in our enthusiasm we not to step on others or overindulge our self to the point of narcissism.

When taking time for our self after a loss we must be wary of not getting stuck in the over-indulging mode, as this could be a way of avoiding dealing with our new circumstances. And whenever we are indulging our self we must ensure we are not acting from neediness, feeding the “poor me” and/or playing the victim. All these forms of over-indulgences are disempowering. They are not moving us towards wholeness.

Choosing You (the Other)

I am choosing you when I allow you to speak your mind, without trying to sway you to my ideas or way of thinking.  I am choosing you when I take the time to listen to you, without interrupting. I am choosing you when I support you in your endeavors, without throwing negativity your way. I am choosing you when I encourage you to follow your dreams, without my fear of being left out overshadowing you attaining them.

Really listening and allowing you to express yourself or speak your mind is choosing you. However, if we are in a social situation and someone is being arrogant, aggressive, or contrary, rather than engage with them it is better to extricate our self from the conversation. They are working from unconscious influences and will not likely change their tone. They will deal with what is driving them to negative disempowering attitudes when they are ready.

Engaging with those close to us, especially our spouse or other family members, offers special challenges. When our lives are intertwined with another it is almost second nature to self-reference what they say and what they do. Without realizing it, we often react from concerns such as “How will this affect me?” “How will this affect us”? “Why are you doing this to me”?

We can’t really avoid engaging with family members, so our best option is to try and understand them, where they are coming from, and it things turn nasty calmly tell the person and disengage.

Whatever our relationship, we must trust that the other is simply stating how he or she is feeling or thinking at the moment, or doing what they need to do to be happy, feel fulfilled, or become empowered in their life.

If the other is simply expressing themself, they need to communicate how they feel for their self-preservation. If they are voicing an opinion or idea, they need to be given the space to express it – without interruption or any negative reaction. And since much of the time people cannot articulate perfectly what they are trying to say, we must be patient with them. We must allow the other to fully express themselves – whatever the subject matter.

If they are discussing the possibility of a new endeavor, they may only need a sounding board to help them figure it out. Some people’s way of working out ideas that are not completely formulated is to voice the scattered thoughts. This helps them work out the details, and so we must be patient with them when they are attempting to articulate their ideas.

Other people throw all kinds of ideas around. Some may seem impractical, unrealistic, or even detrimental to the relationship. Again, we must be careful not to self-reference and become fearful or angry, as this is just their way to work through all the possibilities. They will likely throw out those that may cause difficulty to the relationship. If not, that can be addressed later when the details are clearer.

When someone close to us embarks on a new endeavor or picks up a new hobby that is important to their peace, happiness, or professional life, it is important to encourage them. Just as we must follow our dreams and passions and choose me, we have to allow those close to us to follow what is calling to them and be supportive. We must not allow our fears or any jealousy to mar their moving forward. We must come from the place of choosing you.

At the same time when it seems that a choice someone close to us is making will affect the relationship, it is important to express our concerns, but in a way that uplifts the relationship rather than degrades the other.

Let’s say our spouse takes on extra responsibilities at work that will be helpful financially and to his or her career, but will take time away from the family. We can say something like, “I’m so proud of you for getting that promotion, but we will have to make an effort to carve out extra family time.”

If our young adult child moves across the country for school or work, we can say something like, “I’m so proud and pleased you got into the school (or got the job), but I will miss you, so we will have to visit each other often.” In both cases, we have voiced our concerns, and offered a solution, while at the same time being supportive of the other’s new endeavor. We have promoted choosing me and choosing you.

Below is a peek at more inside the book:

Improving our attitudes helps change the world, as every shift in attitude affects the vibration of the Planet as a whole. (Introduction).

Somewhere deep within the crevices of our mind lies the cellular memories of the original feelings of living within a harmony-ruled paradigm and so, it remains a longing deep within us. (Chapter 1)

Most humans are deeply conflicted because we are born into a society that extols the virtues of love, caring, and honesty, but is biased in carrying out the representations of these virtues. This creates a pull and push within us.  (Chapter 1, Why We Are the Way We Are)

Powerful shifts will occur in us when we acknowledge the truth of who we are, while at the same time reconcile the truth of who we are being. (Chapter 2, Universal Laws / Kingdom Principles)

Our capacity to love others is in direct relationship to how much we love ourselves. (Chapter 3, What We Can Do About It)

Our Relationships are Pre-set Soul Contracts: The highest purpose of our relationships is to work out our unconscious influences: our fears, neediness, vulnerabilities, misperceptions, and false notions about love. (Chapter 5, Relationships)

We are not exercising true free will if we live under the tutelage of unconscious influences. (Chapter 6, Words, Symbols, Rituals, Concepts, Prayers).

We can reconcile our apparent relationship with extra-terrestrials with our belief systems. (Chapter 7, Science).

The electromagnetic fields we create from our heart chakras are at least forty times stronger than those created from our brains. (Chapter 8, Health and Healing; Death and Dying).

Our need to reconcile what we put upon the Indigenous peoples is in direct relationship to our country’s successful advancements. (Chapter 9, The Planet and Abundance)

At levels beyond our awareness we chose to be here at this time of ‘The Shift’ to help bring about our and Gais’s Ascensions. (Chapter 10, Ascension).

The Importance of Embracing Unity Consciousness (Conclusion).
