Since the astral world precedes physical manifestation, it is much more important to get rid of astral influences and then recognize their forms of expression in physical reality. Liberation from physical influence alone will not free a person from the source of influence permanently.
The matrix as an energy field belongs to the collective influence. It has a global influence because it is about the programs in the field automatically downloaded. Every system exists primarily to advance and deepen one’s self-manifestation and not make one accept the system’s rules blindly. What gives strength to the system are like-minded individuals. There is nothing wrong with being surrounded by like-minded people, but it should be clear to everyone that the matrix as a system has one source. The term ‘system’ itself leads one to wrong conclusions and decisions. When it comes to the matrix and its rulers, there will be primarily talking of the lower astral ruler and its archons who are doing their best to adapt the Earth to their own needs.
On this level one also deals with influences of reptilian brain – instinct which is activated in very dangerous situations. Instinct emerges even before emotion. Instincitiv behaviour is behaviour without previous thinking of circumstances one found oneself in. To think one needs to detach, but instinct prevents one. Brain has three segments and reptilian brain is developed first. Reptilian brain refers to survival instincts, because these are the first lessons of one who grows under conditioned love. Instinctive behaviour does not neccessarily means bad behaviour, but one should consciooussly take control of these programs.
Such influences have a powerful impact on the one. However, it is also possible to get rid of such influence. That is important in the context of creative self-manifestation during the current life, and it is equally important for after-life.
