Through a process of self review, Deborah Bravandt identified specific thoughts that link to specific emotions that link to specific mindsets, ultimately creating complexes. Dr. Carl Jung defined complexes as knots on the mind that create foreign behavior. I chose to use his label “complexes” to be consistent with his psychological term.
Three complexes were provided by a secondary source while the remaining seventeen complexes were identified by Deborah through a form of visual meditation in which she watched a program enter her body, tracing the program to its destination in the Chinese meridians. Thoughts were pulled into parts of the brain known as the pineal gland, pituitary gland, medulla oblongata, and hypothalamus by way of intent in order to understand the thoughts the other person who was projecting at her during the original chaotic moment. Emotions were traced by feeling them activate and build in the belly region. Mindsets were traced to the area behind the heart composed of the Governing Vessel and Bladder Meridian. During each analogical experience review, the message was clear; the same thoughts created the same emotion created the same mindset consistently.
SHAME ANGER RESENTMENT
Shame is a concept of having done something, either intentionally or unintentionally, as dishonorable, disreputable, and reproachful. It leads to a person feeling accused and thus angry. Anger is an inability to resolve the original intent. Perhaps someone shamed you online. Perhaps someone shamed you behind your back and people believe the stories. Perhaps someone made your sexuality laughable. Anger is an emotional reaction of remorse for trusting that person who never believed in you originally and thus, never deserving your time, attention, and love. It creates resentment, which is bitterness, animosity, and irritation towards the accuser.
FAILURE GUILT WRATH
Failure is an idea of missing the mark in the creation of a goal. If the failure occurs, such as creating a business that fails and results in bankruptcy, it leads to an emotional response of guilt. Guilt is an emotional reaction of responsibility. A person may feel guilty for using his or her savings to advertise a business, leading to continual failure of profitability. Over time, the guilt may build due to use of credit cards. It may be guilt for wasting time on a venture that simply didn’t succeed. It results in rage or wrath. It is amplified at an individual or self who originally encouraged the goal.
REJECTION DISRESPECT OBSESSION
Rejection is powerful because one person wants and desires a person who does not want him or her. It creates a link through disrespect, which activates obsession. Obsession can mimic the “in love” sensation but it is only emptiness within the vessel of obsession. Obsession is like a sociopathic person treating the lover like an object. The lover does not understand how devalued he or she is in the eyes of the emotionally disconnected person because the lover only feels deep, abiding love that is not returned.
SUPERIOR DISGUST LUST
Superiority is a belief in being special, such as being better than another person based upon your social connections, intelligence, money, race, sexuality, or belief systems. It is a concluding thought based in circumstances. It leads to disgust. For example, a Christian may feel disgusted when a member of his or her church comes out as gay or a lesbian. Yet, disgust is disguised in something shocking. Disgust is linked to lust. To have lust is to covet another person’s body, gifts, money, knowledge, possessions, sexuality, freedom, etc. Lust is a so-called superior person’s desire to own you. If you attempt to break free from the disgust, the so-called special person will lust to control you. Lust is a prison for many non-sexual Christians wishing to control others who desire a normal, healthy sexual life.
FAULT DEPRESSION LOSS
Depression starts from a deeply rooted idea, that as a human being, you are sinful, criminal, offensive, disobedient, responsible, and culpable. Even if you are not religious, sin is a belief that you have violated some internal law of ethics, which causes an inability to regain your divine state of love. Violation and disobedience to a higher power, god, patriarchal system, or archetype is another definition. Again, the god or archetype may not even exist, but it exists in your mind, thus the disobedience is real in your mind. It’s the idea that you have broken an internal rule that separates you from delivery of a promise. This creates depression, which is a long standing feeling of pain due to permanent loss. It is not short term loss. It is complete loss that can never be returned. Loss is something equivalent to loss of a love through death or divorce, loss of equivalent or higher income upon due to a bankruptcy that wasn’t your fault, or loss of respect that can never be regained due to a powerful lie. The pain of depression is felt so deeply as the result is permanent, and permanency is difficult to accept.
FEAR AGGRESSION SADNESS
Fear is a force that causes humans to fight for their life, to compete to avoid loss, to move mountains in order to sustain breathe. Fear is really just a tool to create aggression. Aggression is an emotion that varies in different forms, such as moodiness, irritation, and tension. Aggression is a false protection against the mindset most avoided. Sadness is hopelessness, anguish, dysphoria, restlessness, and listlessness.
BETRAYAL HUMILIATION ISOLATION
Betrayal is shocking. No one expects his or her private life to be a tool to be attacked or assaulted. A person that knows your hidden fears, doubts, and vulnerability can use these against you. If a person exposes your secrets, it feels like a violation. It creates humiliation. The two lead to a desire to retreat from negative attention into isolation. It is the desire to regain privacy in solitude.
VICTIMIZATION CONFUSED WORTHLESS
Victimization is the act of bullying, declaring you defective when you are not. It is a person calling you crazy when you are not. It is a person calling you a deviant when you are not. It is a person calling you “rogue” because you break out of a patriarchal system to think for yourself. It is also physical assaults. Victimization leads to confusion, which is an emotion that feels like anxiety yet is different because the result diverges. Confusion creates worthlessness. Worthlessness may translate as meaninglessness, pointless, and decreased value.
JUDGMENT DIMINISH IMMORAL
To condemn, criticize, or judge is disapproval. To judge is to shift a group’s opinion of acceptance of you into dissent. It is gossip, slander, and defamation. It creates diminishment, regression, and decrease. If a person takes two steps forward, the judge will cause the victim to step four steps back. It leads to immorality. Immorality is a mindset of sin, graceless, wrong doing, and corruption. For example, if a Christian comes out to his fellow church members as gay, he is being authentic yet Christians will label this man a sinner with an immoral lifestyle. Sin is a lie because any human being could label something “sin” or “immoral,” yet there is no god that is creating this standard. It is humans who create rules, laws, and creeds.
DECEPTION DEGRADED UNDESERVING
Deception is the creation of a fixed result through force, manipulation, control, and exploitation. It’s crossing a line of ethics to get a desired goal. It’s pre-determing the winner of a boxing game in order to get gain. It’s rigging an election to force a winning candidate. It’s putting a sex tape online to attract an audience and income. When the audience is intelligent, it sees through the deception that an athlete, politician, and reality star have simply degraded themselves to get gain. Undeservedness is the result of degradation. The person may have achieved fame, glory, and money, but he or she is considered cheap, contemptible, and debased.
POWER HATE VIOLENCE
Power is using a position or authority to harm another person. Harm is created through hatred. For example, Trump uses his position as president of the United States to direct hatred towards minorities, women, and immigrants. The goal is crowd control through emotion and mindset. Hatred is an emotion that feels fierce like anger, but the antagonism creates hostility and violence. Violence can be thought-based, verbal, and physical.
LIE ANXIETY MANIPULATION
Lying is dishonesty, fiction, slander, defamation, and falsehood. When a person lies, anxiety will automatically be the response. When a person lies to a secondary person and the secondary person believes the lie, it will create anxiety in the believer. The liar will also feel anxiety. The result is manipulation. Although the believer of the lie may not be aware of the manipulation, the liar is certainly creating a specific end goal.
COMPARISON JEALOUSY LIMITATION
In a world that is built on comparisons, humans naturally seek to differentiate themselves from one another. This setting oneself apart is a form of separating humans by money, awards, beauty, gifts, and everything is comparison based on limitation. It creates jealousy. Jealousy leads to limitation, which is restrictive. Limitation can be experienced through income, love, sexuality, opportunities, etc. It is a block on expansion.
DEATH OVERWHELM COMPETITION
Mortality and death are a driving force to survive. Death is a thought of finality, which all humans seek to avoid. Death of income, death of health, death of love, etc. cause humans to work for food, shelter, and comfort. The game of life leads to overwhelm as there is a constant need for more, which leads to the mindset of competition. Competition is the governing power of life, creating distinct beliefs in labels of “winners” and “losers.” All competition leads to a desire for more even though death is still a possibility. As an example, a salesman wins a big contract. He is a winner, praised, and honored by his company. He quickly feels the desire to celebrate by buying a new car for himself and his significant other. He might be overwhelmed during the fight for the new contract. He might be overwhelmed with his purchases after he won the contract. Now he is in a state of need for more to survive. The ultimate goal is to avoid mortality, being subject to death. What if I don’t make enough? What if I am not as good as people say? What if I fail to pay my car payments? It is the fight to escape death.
PUNISH DISTRESS REGRET
Punishment is chastisement, chastening, hurting, and correcting a person through harm. Once a law, belief, contract, or vow has been broken, punishment is the force of power to control. Punishment leads to distress, which is deep pain, affliction, and suffering. It is mortification that creates indebtedness. Since you are now a prisoner of someone or something, it leads to regret. If you married a man that gambled away your savings and credit, it would lead to regretting the marriage and all kind acts shown to this man. If you donated money to a friend’s charity who would later discredit you unfairly, you would regret knowing this friend. Regret is painful as it is based in a desire for an apology that never comes. Regret resides without restitution or restoration.
PERFECTION GRIEF INFERIOR
Perfection is the idea that nothing in your life could ever go wrong. Perfection is the idea excellence, precision, and completion. Even if a person achieves a level of precision linked to perfection, the bar of perfection will be raised and thus never obtainable. Unobtainable is elusive, unattainable, distant, and impassable. This leads to grief. A perfect marriage dissolves. An employee is laid off from a perfect job when technology makes the job obsolete. Grief is heartache, lamentation, and bereavement. It leads to inferiority. All relationships become inferior. All jobs or income levels become inferior. Inferiority is secondary, subordinate, and menial.
NEGLECT EMBARRASSMENT DISGRACE
Neglect is disregard, carelessness, and avoidance. Neglect will create embarrassment. For example, if a student neglects attending a college class or reading the manual, he will more than likely fail the avoided course, which leads to embarrassment for not being able to complete what was started. Disgrace is the mindset created. Disgrace is a loss of honor, respect, and confidence.
DENIAL SHOCK LACK
Denial is the act of rejecting, negating, and refuting responsibility. As an example, when a mentor teaches ethics and values, but secretly rapes you, it is difficult to process as you, the student, believes his or her mentor could never do wrong. Thus, you the person, must be wrong. Denial is rejection of the obvious. It creates shock. It is an emotion related to the belief that the event should not have happened, yet it did. Shock is an emotional impact much like a jolt, earthquake, or crash. It rolls over you like a wave over and over, paralyzing motion and action. Someone is refusing ownership. The cheating wife who received the results of revenge may deny that her husband defamed her publicly. The husband who enacted the revenge may deny his inner cruelty, which is why his wife left him for someone else. Denial is self deception. It creates lack, which is the absence of choice, money, reputation, credit worthiness, options, etc.
GREED MANIC DOUBT
Greed is a hunger for excess. Greed is based in selfishness in which the greedy one craves more food, money, sex, and attention at the expense of another person. It is ravenous behavior without remorse, caution, or responsibility. A man who spends his wife’s savings on his gambling addiction is greed. A woman who spends credit on plastic surgery without intending to repay is greed. A mentor who claims to be enlightened to all her followers yet privately lies about her clients due to jealousy is also gaining through greed. Greed creates an emotion of mania, which is a high from gaining people, places, things, times, or events. Once the thing has been used up, it leads to doubt. You might doubt the ability to create enough income to attract more addiction. You might doubt your aging body will attract a love interest. Greed kills trust, which is the basis of apathy. Apathy is a lack of concern, care, or regard as their is significant doubt.
EXPECTATION DISAPPOINTMENT BLAME
Manifestation is life. You set goals and intentions in order to take action in order to attract that which you desire. All manifestations have expectation at the core. Expectation is not unhealthy, yet it can lead to imbalance when the results are not accepted. Disappointment can feel like a blow to the head, like bad luck, misfortune, and disaster. When disappointment of the desired outcome is not released, it creates blame. Blame is an attack, denunciation, castigation, and incrimination towards the self or another person. Blames rejects the message, which is the imperfection of power, people, and events. No one manifests perfectly. Let go of blame.
