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. I identified twenty complexes through a form of self review.
Twenty complexes were identified by Deborah through a form of visual meditation in which she watched a mindset enter her body, tracing the mindset to its destination in the Chinese meridians. Emotions were traced by feeling them activate and build in the belly region. Past analogical experiences were pulled into the pineal gland by way of intent in order to understand the thoughts the other person was projecting at her during the original chaos. During each analogical experience review, the message was clear; the same thoughts created the same emotion created the same mindset consistently.
SHAME ANGER VIOLENCE
Shame will always lead to creating anger. Anger held long enough in the body creates a form of harm or violence, which is either directed at the self or outwardly directed at another. Embarrassment is a lesser form of shame.
FAILURE GUILT WRATH
Failure leads to an emotional response of guilt. When a relationship ends, it is common for one person to blame the other for failing to meet his or her needs. Guilt creates wrath or rage.
REJECTION DISRESPECT OBSESSION
Rejection creates disrespect, which activates obsession. Obsession can mimic the “in love” sensation but it is only emptiness within the vessel of obsession.
SUPERIOR DISGUST LUST
Superior thoughts create disgust for another person, which is ultimately based in lust. To have lust is to either covet another person’s body, gifts, money, knowledge, possessions, etc.
PERFECTION GRIEF INFERIOR
Perfection is not possible in a reality that changes it’s definition of perfection daily, thus, it creates grief when you cannot meet those ideas of perfection. It creates inferiority for never measuring up to false standards.
FEAR AGGRESSION SADNESS
Fear is linked to forms of aggression, such as moodiness, irritation, and tension, which create sadness.
BETRAYAL EMBARRASSED REVENGE
Betrayal is shocking so it automatically creates embarrassment as a response. Revenge becomes the mindset as a person does not want to be the weak one but the strong one. Revenge is a form of distorted strength.
PATHETIC DISGRACE WASTE
To be thought of as a pathetic person for a choice leads to public disgrace, and that disgrace manifests as self destruction. It is the inability to make money, live happily, keep a relationship together, or purpose to life. It will be covered or managed through waste. It might be waste of time, money, or health through the form of alcoholism or drugs.
JUDGMENT DIMINISH WORTHLESS
Judgment is a thought of winning and losing some ideal. Judgment is used to control the masses, especially in religion. For example, a Christian man who chooses to divorce his wife in order to marry a man will be labeled a sinner. He is living his life authentically, yet, Christians judge the man as being less than themselves in order to diminish him as a person. Diminishment is the creation of lesser worth and value. Worthlessness is an attack on the person’s self esteem.
GREED DEGRADED UNDESERVING
Greed is excessive craving at the expense of another person. For example, a married man spends the family money on a mistress as he is greedy for comfort. A church member gossips about a fellow church member as she is greedy for attention and admiration. A person makes a sex tape and puts it online as he or she is greedy for fame. Greed has the intent of degradation. Undeservedness is the result of degradation. For example, the married man is undeserving of his wife’s earnings as he gives them away without permission. The gossipy church lady may declare the other church member to be undeserving of her friend’s attention. The person who makes the sex tape is considered undeserving of his or her fame.
PRIDE DISDAIN PREJUDICE
Pride is arrogance. Pride leads to disdain of a group of people, idea, or person, which leads to a prejudicial mindset. To be prejudiced is to keep a running list of all the people less than you, which sets a person apart in their own tower of limits. Prejudice is self righteousness and contempt.
LIE ANXIETY STAGNANT
When a person lies, anxiety will automatically be the response. If a person believes another person’s deception, it will also create anxiety in the believer. The result is a stagnant reality with difficulty in moving forward.
LIMITATION JEALOUSY MANIPULATION
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 big. It creates jealousy. Jealousy leads to manipulation. The limited person controls the beliefs of a group or the individual with the perceived gift by lying, gossiping, and spreading rumors. The goal is character assassination so that the gifted person loses his or her perceived luck.
COMPETITION OVERWHELM LACK
Competition is the governing power of life, creating distinct beliefs in labels of “winners” and “losers.” All competition leads to lack even if you win. To compete is to desire more. 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. Now he is in a state of lack, so he must compete for more. There is nothing wrong with competing for more, but it does create a cyclical pattern of Overwhelm as an emotion. 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? Ultimately, it is competition for money, power, respect, fame, or worthiness that creates overwhelm.
PUNISH HUMILIATE ISOLATION
Failure to succeed with any goal or intention will lead others to deliver punishment. All punishment creates humiliation, and humiliation forces you to retreat into isolation. Isolation is a form of self protection from further mistreatment.
DISHONOR HATRED RESENTMENT
When a person chooses to go against divine right order and harm you, it is an act of dishonor or cruelty. Dishonor creates the emotion of hatred, which can be felt by the one on the receiving end or the doer of the act. Resentment is the resulting mindset, which is an inner knowing of offense, malignity, and bitterness.
DOUBT DISTRESS NEGLECT
Doubt is a stopping point for learning and doing as the thought creates an energetic wall of impossibility. Doubt leads to distress. The two create a strong link that leads to a mindset of Neglect. Neglect halts progress, such as attending a science class or reading the manual as it seems beyond your learning capability. The neglect will lead to abandonment or failure in the science class. Neglect will create a sensation of being in limbo like purgatory.
POSSESSION DEPRESSION OPPRESSION
Possession is a form of theft. To possess something is to take property that is not yours. Humans possess other humans through control. For example, a man may promise a woman that he will share his income with her once they marry, then refuse once the marriage is legal. A woman may possess a man’s mind by convincing him he is pathetic and small. A boss may lie to his employee by saying he cannot grant the employee a pay increase even though he has authority to do so. Possession of one’s mind leads to depression. Depression keeps a person stuck in a dead end job, a cruel marriage, or a religion that cannot grant you anything. Oppression is the result, which is enslavement and subjugation of free will choice.
VICTIMIZATION ANGUISH REGRET
Victimization is the awareness that someone, through greed, lies, or judgment, has compromised you in order to force a result. Sexual abuse, financial theft, gossip, etc. are victimization. For example, you may have bought expensive tickets to a real estate workshop expecting a famous person to give you rare information only to realize after attending that the famous person would never attend and that the same information was easily accessible in a book. The victim feels anguish, bitterness, or discomfort from the financial expenditure, which leads to regret. Regret is painful as it keeps you in a looping mindset that you could have chosen a better alternative and avoided a loss by declining the original invitation. Regret simply creates more pain.
EXPECTATION DISAPPOINTMENT BLAME
Setting goals, intentions, and taking action is the essence of life. The imbalance during the act of creation is to expect a finite conclusion. When the expectation is not achieved, imbalance creates disappointment. Blame towards someone or something becomes a residual mindset in order to resolve the failed expectation.
