A shared supportive reality experience is another one of my complex metaphysical theories. These concepts come to me as the result of inspired thinking, or based on my impression of events in which the principles I am describing have revealed themselves. The shared supportive reality experience is in no way a psychological principle and should not be construed as such. I consider myself a metaphysicist or metaphysician, so I relate my experiences according to metaphysical philosophy.
I am basing the shared supportive reality experience concept on existing theories such as the idea that human beings are conscious co-creators of reality. The fundamental principle I use as the basis for the majority of my metaphysical theories is the widely accepted idea that thought creates reality. The human mind is a conscious creator which generates thought forms. These thought forms go on to manifest in what we perceive as physical reality. Other times thought forms materialize in a nonphysical dimension.
I separate physical reality into two main types. First is the personal reality. Personal reality is the one which individuals perceive as the material world. Personal reality is built by the human mind through the interpretation of stimuli received from the external environment. The individual receives the stimuli through the five senses, and other less understood intuits. As the human mind analyzes, and interprets the information received from its senses, the reality creating process is engaged.
The second type of reality is the common reality or consensus reality. The common reality is the one in which all personal realities converge. The consensus reality is recognized by all members of an organized group who share common values and standards of conduct.
A shared supportive reality experience is one in which two or more people, a society, or even an entire race, link their personal realities together to create a group encounter. Members of the group contribute information from their own personal realities to support the common reality formed by those participating in the experience.
In the case of a societal shared supportive reality experience, the adoption of a reality by consensus requires that its members conform to specific rules. What this means is that an apple is an apple and an orange is an orange. Therefore, the reality creating activities of all conscious beings in a society must adhere to its rules. Observance of a society's rules is necessary for practical reasons. Members of society cannot interact meaningfully when one individual's reality disrupts the consensus reality. Personal realities, which do not comply with the reality creating rules established by a society, will conflict with other personal realities. This creates confusion for its members.
My understanding of the metaphysical nature of personal reality is that all experiences are considered as true and valid on a spiritual level. Therefore, no personal reality should be taken as an imaginative invention of the human mind. Even the most bizarre realities being expressed by an individual has validity on a spiritual level. This condition cannot be understood by using one's intellectual ability. The expressions of a person's reality may originate from a number of places, such as past lives, extra-dimensional existences, higher energies, divine beings, and other nonphysical sources.
Individuals form shared supportive realities to carry out specific reincarnational plans made prior to the current incarnation. I call this pre-life designs or planning. Pre-life designs are a complicated matter. In most cases, shared supportive realities are the result of contracts between individuals who agree to perform specific roles in each other's lives. This arrangement is made for the purpose of creating tests and challenges. I would call this a joint venture. These joint ventures are usually formed because of past-life experiences. There may be a need for two or more people to work on a particular issue that was not resolved in a previous life.
There are other reasons for an individual to enter a shared supportive reality experience. The person may be cooperating with higher beings and divine sources seeking to effect changes in the global consciousness. This is a complicated matter for which I do not have sufficient knowledge to explain.
Often times, individuals come together to form an unconventional shared supportive reality experience. This situation occurs when two or more people unconsciously form an agreement to support each other's nonconforming expression reality. There are many reasons that motivate people to enter into these validating contracts. Their motives are always needs based. It is usually the result of a person's needs not being met elsewhere in his or her life. These situations typically occur between vulnerable individuals suffering from various forms of trauma.
The kinds of shared supportive realities created in these situations can be as simple as a person attempting to get emotional validation. They can also be quite complicated and involve the participation of large numbers of people. Again, the claims made by members of the shared supportive reality experience are valid and true on some unexplained spiritual level. These are not false realities as some professionals would tell us. Again, this is purely a metaphysical explanation of the group dynamics I am describing.
All members of the shared supportive reality receive some personal benefit from the experience. Each member of the shared supportive reality interprets his or her experience according to his or her own needs. This group dynamic works well when each member is being validated in their experience. The shared supportive reality experience continues to run smoothly as long as this condition is present.
Although I am explaining this situation in metaphysical terms, I realize that there is a psychological component to it. It may be this psychological aspect that brings people together. I believe that the law of attraction or some other universal law facilitates this process. The shared supportive reality experience occurs in all human relationships, not just ones that on the surface may appear dysfunctional.
Shared supportive reality experiences have many levels to them. The members may be attempting to resolve or improve on unknown past-life issues that may or may not involve other members of the group. The work of the members involved in the shared supportive reality experience is being done to correct issues in this life. This process is entirely unconscious, and members of the group are not aware of the spiritual objectives motivating them participate in the experience. Once again, the issues that arise from this experience may or may not have anything to do with the other member's reasons for participating in the experience.
The interactions that take place between members of the shared supportive reality experience may not be understood by the members of the group at the time it is occurring, but it often becomes apparent at its completion. The emotions and behaviors displayed by members of the group assist themselves and other members in their personal reasons for taking part in the experience. The interactions between the group's members help them become aware of certain conditions and issues that may be in need of improvement.
It should be noted, that depending on the dynamics involved in a particular group, some members of the shared supportive reality experience may derive more insight about themselves than that of members of the shared supportive reality experience. Each shared supportive reality experience offers new opportunities for self-growth because of the unique issues of its members.
Conflicts between members of the shared supportive reality experience will eventually arise. At some point, one member of the shared supportive reality experience will disagree with another member about the information being received. This is because his or her interpretation does not support the other member's personal experience. At this point, the shared supportive reality experience can no longer be maintained by its members. When this happens, the members of the shared supportive reality experience will become acutely aware of their role in the group dynamic. As a result, the individuals involved in the shared supportive reality experience will go on to form new groups.
The successful outcome of any shared supportive reality experience is that the members gain valuable insight into their condition and life's purpose. It many cases, a shared supportive reality experience, will allow one or more of the members to complete missions and overcome challenges that are part of his or her pre-life designs. This is the best possible outcome. However, the desired results are not always realized in these experiences. The conscious creator will continue participating in these shared supportive reality experiences until its goals are achieved.
