Casting the Burden - Impressing the Subconscious

When man knows his own powers and the workings of his mind, his great desire is to find an easy and quick way to impress the subconscious with good, for simply an intellectual knowledge of the Truth will not bring results.In my own case, I found the easiest way is in "casting the burden."

A metaphysician once explained it in this manner. He said, "The only thing which gives anything weight in nature, is the law of gravitation, and if a boulder could be taken high above the planet, there would be no weight in that boulder; and that is what Jesus Christ meant when he said: "My yoke is easy and my burden is light."

He had overcome the world vibration, and functioned in the fourth dimensional realm, where there is only perfection, completion, life and joy.

He said: "Come to me all ye that are labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest." "Take my yoke upon you, for my yoke is easy and my burden is light."

We are also told in the fifty-fifth Psalm, to "cast thy burden upon the Lord." Many passages in the Bible state that the battle is God's not man's and that man is always to "stand still" and see the Salvation of the Lord.

This indicates that the superconscious mind (or Christ within) is the department which fights man's battle and relieves him of burdens.

We see, therefore, that man violates law if he carries a burden, and a burden is an adverse thought or condition, and this thought or condition has its root in the subconscious.

It seems almost impossible to make any headway directing the subconscious from the conscious, or reasoning mind, as the reasoning mind (the intellect) is limited in its conceptions, and filled with doubts and fears.

How scientific it then is, to cast the burden upon the superconscious mind (or Christ within) where it is "made light," or dissolved into its native nothingness."

For example: A woman in urgent need of money, "made light" upon the Christ within, the superconscious, with the statement, "I cast this burden of lack on the Christ (within) and I go free to have plenty!"

The belief in lack was her burden, and as she cast it upon the Superconscious with its belief of plenty, an avalanche of supply was the result.

We read, "The Christ in you the hope of glory."

Another example: One of my students had been given a new piano, and there was no room in her studio for it until she had moved out the old one. She was in a state of perplexity. She wanted to keep the old piano, but knew of no place to send it. She became desperate, as the new piano was to be sent immediately; in fact, was on its way, with no place to put it. She said it came to her to repeat, "I cast this burden on the Christ within, and I go free."

A few moments later, her 'phone rang, and a woman friend asked if she might rent her old piano, and it was moved out, a few minutes before the new one arrived.

I knew a woman, whose burden was resentment. She said, "I cast this burden of resentment on the Christ within, and I go free, to be loving, harmonious and happy." The Almighty superconscious, flooded the subconscious with love, and her whole life was changed. For years, resentment had held her in a state of torment and imprisoned her sould (the subconscious mind).

The statement should be made over and over and over, sometimes for hours at a time, silently or audibly, with quietness but determination.

I have often compared it to winding-up a victrola. We must wind ourselves up with spoken words.

I have noticed, in "casting the burden," after a little while, one seems to see clearly. It is impossible to have clear vision, while in the throes of carnal mind. doubts and fear poison the mind and body and imagination runs riot, attracting disaster and disease.

In steadily repeating the affirmation, "I cast this burden on the Christ within, and go free," the vision clears, and with it a feeling of relief, and sooner or later comes the manifestation of good, be it health, happiness or supply.

One of my students once asked me to explain the "darkness before the dawn." I referred in a preceding chapter to the fact that often, before the big demonstration "everything seems to go wrong," and deep depression clouds the consciousness. It means that out of the subconscious are rising th doubts and fears of the ages. These old derelicts of the subconscious rise to the surfact, to be put out.

It is then that man should clap his cymbals, like Jehoshaphat, and give thanks that he is saved, even though he seems surrounded by the enemy (the situation of lack or disease). The student continued, "How long must one remeain in the dark" and I replied, "until one can see in the dark, and "casting the burden enables one to see in the dark."

In order to impress the subconscious, active faith is always essential.

"Faith without works is dead." In these chapters I have endeavored to bring out this point.

Jeses Christ showed active faith when "He commanded the multitude to sit down on the ground," before he gave thanks for the loaves and fishes.

I will give another example showing how necessary this step is. In fact, active faith is the bridge, over which man passes to his Promised Land.

Through misunderstanding, a woman had been separated from her husband, whom she love deeply. He refused all offers of reconciliation and would not communicate with her in any way.

Coming into the knowledge of Spiritual law, she denied the appearance of separation. She made this statement: "There is no separation in Divine Mind, therefore, I cannot be separated form the love and companionship which are mine by divine right."

She showed active faith by arranging a place for him at the table every day; thereby impressing the subconscious with a picture of his return. Over a year passed, but she never wavered, and one day he walked in.

The subconscious is often impressed through music. Music has a fourth dimensional quality and releases the soul from imprisonment. It makes wonderful things seem possible, and easy of accomplishment!

I have a friend who uses her victrola, daily, for this purpose. It puts her in perfect harmony and releases the imagination.

Another woman often dances while making her affirmations. The rhythm and harmony of music and motion carry her words forth with tremendous power.

The student must remember also, not to despise the "day of small things."

Invariably, before a demonstration, come "signs of land."

Before Columbus reached America, he saw birds and twigs which showed him land was near. So it is with a demonstration; but often the student mistakes it for the demonstration itself, and is disappointed.

For example: A woman had "spoken the word" for a set of dishes. Not long afterwards a friend gave her a dish which was old and cracked.

She came to me and said, "Well, I asked for a set of dishes, and all I got was a cracked plate."

I replied, "The plate was only signs of land. It shows your dishes are coming - look upon it as a birds and seaweed," and not long afterwards the dishes came.

Continually "making-believe," impresses the subconscious. If one makes believe he is rich, and makes believe he is successful, in "due time he will reap."

Children are always "making believe," and "except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter the Kingdom of Heaven."

For example: I know of a woman who was very poor, but no one could make her feel poor. She earned a small amount of money from rich friends, who constantly reminded her of her poverty, and to be careful and saving. Regardless of their admonitions, she would spend all her earnings on a hat, or make someone a gift, and be in a rapturous state of mind. Her thoughts were always centered on beautiful clothes and "rings and things," but without envying others.

She lived in the world of the wondrous, and only riches seemed real to her. Before long she married a rich man, and the rings and things became visible. I do not know whether the man was the "Divine Selection," but opulence had to manifest in her life, as she had imaged only opulence.

There is no peace or happiness for man, until he has erased all fear from the subconscious.

Fear is misdirected energy and must be redirected, or transmuted into Faith.

Jesus Christ siad, "Why are ye fearful, O ye of little faith?" "All things are possible to him that believeth."

I am asked, so often by my students, "How can I get rid of fear?"

I reply, "By walking up to the thing you are afraid of."

"The lion takes its fierceness from your fear."

Walk up to the lion, and he will disappear; run away and he runs after you.

I have shown in previous chapters, how the lion of lack disappeared when the individual spent money fearlessly, showing faith that God was his supply and therefore, unfailing.

Many of my students have come out of the bondage of poverty, and are now bountifully supplied, through losing all fear of letting money go out. The subconscious is impressed with the truth that God is the Giver and Gift; therefore as one is one with the Giver, he is one with the Gift. A splendid statement is, "I now thank God the Giver for God the Gift."

Man has so long separated himself from his good and his supply, through thoughts of separation and lack, that sometimes, it takes dynamite to dislodge these false ideas from the subconscious, and the dynamite is a big situation.

We see in the foregoing illustration, how the individual was freed from his bondage by showing fearlessness.

Man should watch himself hourly to detect if his motive for action is fear or faith.

"Choose ye this day whom we shall serve," fear or faith.

Perhaps one's fear is of personality. Then do not avoid the people feared; be willing to meet them cheerfully, and they will either prove "golden links in the chain of one's good," or disappear harmoniously from one's pathway.

Perhaps one's fear is of disease or germs. Then one should be fearless and undisturbed in a germ-laden situation, and he would be immune.

One can only contract germs while vibrating at the same rate as the germ, and fear drags men down to the level of the germ. Of course, the disease laden germ is the product of carnal mind, as all thought must objectify. Germs do not exist in the superconscious or Divine Mind, therefore are the product of man's "vain imagination."

"In the twinkling of an eye," man's release will come when he realizes there is no power in evil.

The material world will fade away, and the fourth dimensional world, the "World of the Wondrous," will swing into manifestation.

"And I saw a new heaven, and a new earth - and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain; for the former things are passed away."

The Truth...The Astral Plane
The Fourth Dimension is a gray, polarized plane, housing the forces of Light and Darkness.

The battle between good and evil starts here. Forms naturally morph on the Astral Plane... a tree can easily transform into a wolf. This is because the illusion of good and evil is manifest here and because of the extreme mutability of form, distrust and fear that exist... e-motion.

This plane is that of Will or Life-spirit and it is of this dimension that the individual "self", the Ego, is a part. It is the Ego who uses the physical, astral and mind bodies as tools with which to achieve its purpose. When mind, body and spirit are completely aligned with Divine Will and in harmony and balance... one with another... you are omnipotent and have achieved conquest over matter.

After careful training, it is possible to leave the physical body safely in the nourishing care of its etheric web, to go on a Dimensional Journey. This is called astral travel.

When you wish to return you slip back into the restricting burden of your outer coating of flesh. Shamans are adepts in this arena, many times bringing back information to benefit humankind. Unless the person has been specially trained and practiced, the jar of contact once again with the dense Earth vibrations are so harsh that it usually snaps the thread of memory of the journey.

Magic, time travel, karma, reincarnation, luck, psychic surgery, flying, mind reading, disembodied spirits, enchantment, and of course, astral travel, all source from this plane.

The Demi-God/desses of many religions live hereHell and purgatory are fourth dimensional locales as well. By embodying the principles of this plane, we enhance the probability of LIVING A MAGICAL LIFE

THE MAGICAL WORLD(The Fourth Dimension)

Is the next step up...dimensionally Speaking
From the Material World
When you are living in a Magical World
You are taking a stand for the Realities
And parameters of the Fourth Dimension
The Link between the Third-Dimensional Physical Body
And the Fourth Dimension
The Emotional Body studies the Astral Plane
And the Mental Body does its best To
Interpret the Information that it Receives
Within the Limitations of its Linear-Based Functioning Ability

What follows are some Principles
Pictures of Reality and Implications
That are innate in the Fourth Dimension
For instance, lets say you are standing in line at the grocery store and you begin to make psychic contact with others... you now can say:

"I am living in a Magical World!"
When you find yourself Engaged
In Any of the following Activities
You can say the Same
  • Trying to use or get "Luck"
  • Being Superstitious
  • Having a Sexual Fantasy
  • Psychically attacking Someone
  • Psychically defending Someone
  • Fighting for God, the Light, or any other "Good" Cause
  • Or "bad" cause... if that's your Style
  • Trying to Psychically Manipulate another Being or Situation
  • Astral Traveling
  • Working out your Karma
  • Trying to be worthy in the Eyes of God/dess
  • Preaching "the right way" to serve God/dess... Spirit... or the Mission
  • Using Magic... either "White" or "Black"
Here are few Identities
Which take a Stand for the Validity
Of the Magical World
"I am A"......

Magician... Druid... Witch... Sorcerer... Enchanter
Past-life Regressionist
Warrior of the Light
Devil/demon Worshipper
Religious person

The Magical World
Compared to the Material World
Is much more Exciting

There are many unusual Powers
And phenomena to experience There
It has a unique and somewhat Hypnotic Allure
Many Beings feel Liberated
As they move from the Limitations
Of The Material World into the Expansiveness
Of The Magical World

For others, however, this world of shifting Forms
Gray alliances... and non-linear logic is Scary
Additionally... the rules of The Material World
Don't mean much in The Magical World

For those who need to "be in Control"
And "Know how it really Is"
In a Third-dimensional Sense
This metamorphic reality with its uncharted Territories
Including Purgatories and Hells
Are better left Alone

We are at a time in Human History
In which the Veils are rapidly being Lifted
Between the two Worlds
This is frightening to those who Want
The Material World to be the Safe
Predictable place it has always (or seemed to have) Been

As The Magical World becomes increasingly Accessible
The Material World becomes more Destabilized

This is becoming increasingly apparent in the area of relationships. In many (but not all) cases, the scenario goes something like this:

One of the partners begins to explore and experience the validity of the Magical World. The Material World-based partner, is either unable or unwilling to explore The Magical probability. He uses "scientific, common-sense logic" to explain why The Magical World doesn't exist... or just sarcastically dismisses the partner's interest.

Or... A more clever response is this: He plays along with the Magically-inclined partners' "flights of fantasy and imagination." A wiser yet alternative: He supports the Magically-inclined partner's exploration.

But neither "Common-sense Logic"
The common logic of only five Senses
Nor sarcasm can Negate another person's Experiences

As the lure and exploration of The Magical World increases, there becomes less and less for the couple to talk about. And when it comes time for parting, the defender of the logical world finds himself alone with his cold facts, wondering what went wrong.

Another outcome of this scenario is that the Magically-inclined partner halts or slows her progress so as not to hurt the partner, hoping that she can "bring him along."

It may be helpful to Realize
That ALL relationships are in the hands of Spirit
Spirit puts us together and separates Us
In accordance with the Divine Plan

This may sound harsh to the Emotional Body
But when grasped from a Cosmic Perspective
It is really a Blessing

Relationships based upon the parameters of The Magical World can be enchanting; all sorts of magical events may transpire. The partner's face can morph from their usual appearance and look like that of a completely different person. Astral sex is "out of this world".

Plus there are opportunities to play out unfulfilled Material and Magical roles with each other... sometimes reaching into past lives.
At this point in History
The next natural step for many Beings
Is to move from the exploration of The Material World
To the exploration of The Magical World
This requires letting go of Rigid Concepts
Which the linear mind holds as Real

For those who have identified Themselves
With their mental and physical Bodies
This... perhaps... is one of the biggest stumbling Blocks
To exploring the interesting realm of The Magical World
