This page - of my Online Counseling website - has been inspired by the concept of the Assemblage Point Shift.
It is not the easiest page to digest, but your effort to become comfortable with what I present here can potentially pay off in ways far beyond what you could presently imagine.
The reality of the Assemblage Point Shift has served as the foundation upon which the famous author Carlos Castaneda established the worldwide following of his amazing series of books.
It is through my reading of the Castaneda’s books, that I’ve become familiar with the Assemblage Point Shift, and eventually seen in it the equivalent of my work with altered states of consciousness.
On this page I take a dive into the subject of the Assemblage Point Shift because the whole business of shifting the position of the human Assemblage Point is synonymous with the art of the creative usage of altered states of consciousness.
I could write about the creative - therapeutic - usage of altered states of consciousness without ever mentioning the reality of the Assemblage Point Shift.
Why would I go into the highly esoteric subject of shifting the human Assemblage Point in order to present the most basic principles of your psychological freedom?
I have chosen to describe the great benefits of learning the art of shifting the states of consciousness at will, in the context of the Assemblage Point Shift for two reasons:
The first one is that the concept of the Assemblage Point Shift immensely deepens the theme of the altered states of consciousness, because it introduces the reality of THE MENU of the human alternative states of awareness and the reality of your inherent FREEDOM of AWARENESS.
The second reason is that describing the art of shifting the states of consciousness in the context of the Assemblage Point Shift adds to it a profoundly hypnotic dimension.
What I mean by it is that the effect of your reading this page will be greatly enhanced by the way of presenting the art of the creative usage of the alternative states of consciousness in the exotic context of the Assemblage Point Shift.
In other words, the context of the Assemblage Point Shift will make you remember the contents of this page to a much higher degree than a bare presentation of the art of the creative usage of altered states of consciousness would allow for.
About the law of the conservation of psychic energy and the ever present “menu” of the alternative states of consciousness
The law of the conservation of the physical energy states that the physical energy can neither be created nor destroyed. It can only flow from one form to another, as it expresses itself in the never ending dance of the physical reality.
For instance, chemical energy can become kinetic energy of the molecules which manifests itself as heat. The nuclear energy stored in the atoms can become the energy of explosion of the atomic bomb or the electricity generated by the nuclear power plant.
The never ending shifts of the physical energy are well understood and accepted as the most basic phenomena of our physical world.
What is not understood and accepted, is the fact that what happens in the realm of the physical energy does also happen in the realm of the psychic energy of the human mind.
The psychic energy - just as the physical energy - can neither be created nor destroyed, it constantly flows from one form of its expression to another?
Isn’t it true that love can easily become hate?
Don’t we talk about love / hate relationships?
Isn’t it true that the manic-depressive constantly shifts his psychic energy from the mania to depression and vice versa?
What happens in the realm of the psychic energy does show that humans have access to what I call the human PSYCHIC ENERGY MENU.
In other words, everybody can potentially experience any state of consciousness, which is a part of the human menu of the altered states of awareness.
An altered state of awareness - in the context of the information presented on this page of my Online Counseling website - is any state into which your psyche can enter.
In other words, each state of consciousness into which your psyche can potentially enter is an altered state, with respect to some other potentially attainable state.
A state of consciousness is synonymous with a particular form of psychic energy which manifest itself as such. It’s energy can never be destroyed - it can only shift into the energy of another state of awareness.
Most people allow for the shifts of their states of consciousness to just happen to them. They are totally out of control of their altered states of consciousness, and more often victimized by them than helped, as they move along the time-line of their earthly existence.
About the reality of the Assemblage Point Shift and the psychological freedom which you can potentially have, as soon as you learn how to shift your Assemblage Point
In order to help you become psychologically comfortable with the reality of the Assemblage Point Shift, I’m going to present here a parallel which exists between the art of the creative usage of altered states of consciousness and shifting your sight across the visible spectrum of light.
As you are looking at the above image of the visible spectrum of light, imagine that the whole image becomes totally black.
Imagine that somehow the colors that you see become hidden in darkness, and that you need a beam of light in order to bring them out - one-by-one - so that you can enjoy their respective colorful realities.
In other words, the whole spectrum / menu of the colors is always there - covered by the darkness - and by moving a beam of light across the spectrum of colors, you can bring to life any color that you may want to experience.
The Assemblage Point is like that beam of light which you are using to scan the dark image of the spectrum of colors in order to bring the various, hidden colors to light.
The hidden, always potentially accessible colors of the spectrum of light are the equivalent of all the altered states of consciousness which your awareness can access, as the BEAM of YOUR AWARENESS moves across the temporarily out-of-your-awareness, but always existing, and potentially accessible states of consciousness.
Your awareness is not a state of consciousness. It is a function of your mind, which allows you to experience various altered states of consciousness, as it brings their respective realities into existence.
As I’ve already mentioned it above, in the context of what I present here every state of consciousness is an altered state with respect to some other state of consciousness.
Even your common everyday state of mind is an altered state with respect to what you could potentially experience.
You don’t think about your common everyday state of mind as an altered state of consciousness because you are so habituated into it that you take it for your REAL REALITY.
But in fact, there is no such thing as your REAL REALITY.
What you take for your REAL REALITY only seems to be the only real thing because your Assemblage Point has been stuck - for the most part - in a position which keeps that particular reality of your life in a steady state of existence.
Can you see now that all human problems are in their essence problems ONLY because human Assemblage Points gets STUCK in the problematic positions, across the whole spectrum / menu of all the possible states of consciousness?
Is it obvious now that if you could shift your Assemblage Point at will, you could mentally experience any state of consciousness that you want to be operational in your life?
What I am talking here about is the ESSENCE of YOUR PSYCHOLOGICAL FREEDOM - the freedom which arises from the potential flexibility of your Assemblage Point.
In the context of the reality of the Assemblage Point Shift, the most troublesome states of consciousness, typically known under the labels of anxiety and depression are NOT HUMAN PROBLEMS, but only particular positions of the human Assemblage Point.
And as such they are not to be gotten rid of because you can’t take them out of the human altered-state-of-consciousness-menu.
They are to be shifted into some other states, which are equally available as human, experiential psychic realities.
Can you see now that learning the art of the conscious, will-directed shifting of your Assemblage Point is the ultimate psychic art?
It is the ultimate psychic art because it sets your psyche FREE!
From the times immemorial humans have been greatly preoccupied with various ways of shifting out of their undesirable states of awareness.
They have used alcohol, hallucinogenic plants and most recently drugs to alter their negative states of consciousness.
All of these approaches work because they unhinge and then shift the human Assemblage Points from their troublesome positions.
As much as these approaches do work, in terms of liberation of the human assemblage point from its troublesome stuck position, there is a heavy price to be paid for the usage of the chemical consciousness altering agents.
All I have said so far is meant to serve as a potential opener of your awareness to the reality of shifting your states of consciousness at will, without resorting to the usage of various chemical agents.
My core message here is that each state of consciousness into which you mind can potentially enter must be first ASSEMBLED into a cohesive psychic reality, if you are ever to experience its particular quality.
What fallows is that - just as your states of consciousness are assembled into your psychic, experiential realities they can also be disassembled, as their energies shift into various alternative ways of their expression.
What I would like you to take away from this page is the realization that your states of consciousness are JUST STATES of CONSCIOUSNESS, and that they are subject to transformation at will, providing that you have enough psychic energy to shift your Assemblage Point.
Here we come to the subject of psychic energy, which is critical in terms of either enabling or disabling your potential ability to shift your states of consciousness at will.
You see, just a you need physical energy to shift the physical objects from one position to another, you also need psychic energy to shift your consciousness between various altered states of awareness.
You must be either in possession of the sufficient psychic energy to create various altered stated of consciousness in your mind, or you have to BORROW that energy from somebody else.
It is rather obvious that if you can’t lift a heavy stone you have to BORROW the energy of another person in order to accomplish your physical task.
Not too many people realize that the accomplishment of the tasks which are psychic in nature follows the same law.
This law is utterly simple.
It states that no change can ever occur in any of the realms of our UNIVERSAL REALITY, without the application of energy necessary for the creation of that change.
If you are looking for a non drug-oriented helper - either hypnotist, psychologist or even a drug-free psychiatrist - the most important quality of that helper is the level of the psychic energy which he has in his possession.
The whole art of the creative usage of altered states of awareness hinges on ENERGY and INTENTION. Carlos Castaneda's books make this fact very explicit.
Book knowledge, diplomas, and the years of study mean NOTHING unless a consciousness-worker has attained a high level of psychic energy.
As I’m coming to the close of this page of my Online Counseling website, I’m becoming aware that what I’ve presented above flows beautifully into a fascinating subject which I’ve named The Realities of LeShan.
It seems that the page about The Realities of LeShan is already unfolding in my mind, and as soon as it is ready I will place a link to it on the page which you are reading now.
