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.
ENTITLEMENT DIMINISH VULNERABLE
Entitlement is the key ingredient in bully behavior. Entitlement originates from a place or a position of power to force another person into submission through diminishment. The diminishment leads to vulnerability in which the victim feels incapable of empowerment. Vulnerability is neediness, dis-empowerment, and unrequited love.
UNDESERVING DEGRADED WORTHLESS
Undeserving beliefs lead to degradation of another person, which is gossip, with the intent to categorize a person as worthless. Worthlessness destroys a person’s ability to attract an audience to create income, a relationship, health, and motivation.
PRIDE DISDAIN PREJUDICE
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 POSSESSION
Any limitation, such as money, experience, connections, will create jealousy. Jealousy leads to manipulation and possessiveness, which is the need to control the circumstances of the original limitation.
COMPETITION OVERWHELM LOSS
Competition is a way of life. You compete for income, the attention of people, volunteer positions, and more. It creates emotions of mania and overwhelm. Competition is creates a clear finish line of wins and loses. When a task is beyond your ability to sustain or doubt creeps in, the result is destruction, divorce, and loss.
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.
JUDGMENT DISTRESS SEPARATION
Judgment is based in man-made rules or beliefs that a person can be “less than” another person. Judgment is built upon the fallen god concept that perfection exists. If you experience judgment, it will create distress. Distress leads to separation, which is a disconnection between you and other people. This is a literal disconnect from love but not a fully realized conclusion. It’s hanging in limbo.
LACK DEPRESSION OPPRESSION
Lack represents lack of money, love, respect, friendships, equality, significance, health, happiness, etc. It is the belief that there is a right religion versus animosity. It is the belief that there is a right kind of sexuality and a wrong kind of sexuality. It is the belief that there is a right kind of race versus a lesser concept. Lack creates depression due to the inability to change one’s circumstances, creating a mindset of oppression. Oppression is torment, abuse, subjection, and domination.
GREED REGRET DOUBT
Greed, survival, comfort, selfishness, or theft is the root belief of compromising another person’s free will. When a person steals, the compromised person feels ashamed and regret. To regret is to believe you could have chosen a better alternative, avoided greed, or enforced your free will choice to decline an invitation. Regret will lead to apathy, yet underneath apathy is great pain. Pain is torment, anguish, and misery for it is unresolved, undetermined, unsettled, unanswered, and incomplete. It ultimately creates doubt.
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.
