Which one of these theories of reality do you think Krampus would visit you to impart?

You are teaching hypnosis and the concept of reality often comes up. What isn't often shared is the implications of accepting one model of reality over another to live one's life by. Does the premise of our reality being imparted through our communication affecting the clients that are attracted to us? I think so. I believe those clients also bring with them specific relational beliefs that communicates how they construct reality in different contexts. This takes us into the rabbit hole of what is objective reality? Objective reality means that reality exists independent of our minds. The description "objective" doesn't make a lot of sense on its own, but it does when grounded in the theoretical relationship between consciousness and existence.

This basic metaphysical question lies at the root of our first questions in life, and “Why?” emphasizes a question about particulars of reality itself. To approach questions about reality there are two theories that hypothesize how it all works and that people may live their lives by. The primacy of existence verses the primacy of consciousness are what we will be contrasting here. The primacy of consciousness is the view that reality is a product of consciousness. In this worldview, the everything is a product of our minds, or the mind of some other being, such as the gods. In this theory, nothing exists in itself or by itself. It exists as a figment of your shared imagination, or in the same way a learned concept or a memory might exist for you. In the primacy of consciousness theory reality is an imagined construct manifested by consciousness. That means that you can change reality by changing your mind, you gain knowledge of reality by understanding yourself, and by engaging in introspection. All knowledge is within you.

The primacy of existence theory states that reality exists independent of our conscious awareness. If we want something to happen in our lives, we have to take action to make it happen. We can't just wish for it to happen or manifest it within our life. If we want to gain knowledge about the world we have to go out and engage with the world in some way. Then we need to make rational choices about our experiences and make our best guess. We would be unable to know practically anything with the absolute certainty of 1+1=2. In our lives, we’d have to look to reality surrounding us to understand the limited interactions we have in that reality to be as successful as possible. If we're mistaken about the workings of reality, then we won't be successful. This theory posits that reality exists in a particular way, and if we don't understand those workings than we lose out. Then we die, sleep, or daydream, and reality around us remains unchanged and separate from us. Beginning to discuss these implications gets at the relational hypnosis we have all accepted as true without asking, "How do we know?"

Whichever one of these theories you resonate with more will have implications of your experience of life and how you practice your art. Getting to decide on "objective reality" may not be as simple as you thought a moment ago, and yet you still function in it relatively successfully. This rabbit hole is not one that will be resolved in this post, but your work here will lead your investigation into exploring possibilities you’ve never imagined before. Which one of these theories do you think Krampus would visit you to impart and why?
