Constructs, Grounding, and Filtering
Psi is a very impressionable energy, being controlled, no matter how minutely, by the slightest intent. In this act of manipulating psi, we will notice conceptually distinct intents group and form on their own. Whether we consciously do this or not, psi will form into these groups, which we call constructs. A construct is psi imbued with intent, used to bring about some sort of change. Constructs can be immensely intricate and complicated, or simple.
Applications of Constructs
Constructs are used for a multitude of tasks, ranging from conveying information to kinesis itself. A construct may be used to 'enchant' an object, enabling it to bring about certain virtues in the user. Construct communication is a very useful application of construct dynamics, and is great practice for creating, sending, and reading constructs. A construct can autonomously gather energy without the active will of the psion guiding it, which can open the gate for more advanced constructs and kinesis. Constructs may be programmed to conflict with other constructs, and ground locations and people, as well as scan and store information.
The Development of a Construct
A construct is created when intent is formed and coupled with psi. A construct exists in the conceptual realm, being a grouping of intent. As a construct is formed by any act of kinesis or intent coupled with psi, this is obviously a prerequisite to creating a construct. A construct may be more cleanly and efficiently made with conscious effort. Begin with focal meditation, preferably on the soul. Start by gathering psi, which was covered in the Introduction to Energy lesson, located http://forums.vsociety.net/index.php?topic=10460.0
Having a surplus of ambient energy will enable better reception of the intent and programming to the construct, thus making it easier for beginners or practice. After a sufficient amount of psi has been gathered, form an intent to gather the psi in one location, whether the location be physical or nonphysical. At this point, and even far before, you should have a purpose for your construct, or some form of intent. Conceptualize this and work on actualizing this intent, using the psi energy that you've gathered. After adequate time has been spent on actualizing the intent (which can also be directly related to the creation of the construct, e.g., “This construct will operate on gathering ambient energy and storing it until so-and-so date.”) expect that your construct has been firmly and completely created, and finish. Construct dynamics are a rather large aspect of working with psi, and immensely boost knowledge of the inner workings of psi.
Grounding & Filtering
The processes of grounding and filtering are, arguably, some of the most important to upkeep and restoration of psi practices. Through active cleaning and scrubbing of one's surrounding field, a psion may find mental clarity easier to attain, acts of kinesis come easier and cleaner, and an array of abilities come naturally.
Grounding is the act of 'recycling' impure energy on all planes of existence around oneself. The process requires a quieted mind, so begin grounding with focal meditation. Acts of energy require intent as much as kinesis, so form a solid intent to cleanse the energy surrounding you on all planes. Locate a focal point within the soul and actualize this intent, dispelling all of the impurities, virtues, and preconceived concepts saturating the energy. Be thorough, and make sure the energy is completely pure and clean on all planes. The process may be repeated several times to ensure cleanliness, but try to be very deep and thorough about it.
While grounding cleans the surrounding energy and area of virtues and unclean energy, filtering cleans your immediate area and self of constructs. Constructs may be formed without realizing it, picked up elsewhere, formed by others, or forgotten about. Begin as you did grounding with focal meditation. Form an intent to dispel and dismantle any surrounding constructs, attached or otherwise. Form a focal point in the soul and actualize the intent, feeling your surrounding area become cleaner and less 'cluttered'. Again, this may be repeated, but one should be very thorough about it. Through grounding and filtering, a stable working environment may be created and maintained, and other workings will come easier.
