The key ideas of esotericism regarding the spiritual transformation of a person in this article are considered in the context of psychological inner work on oneself at the initial (exoteric) stage of mastering esoteric knowledge and experience. It is noted that the external world penetrates into the inner world of a person, "imprinted", becoming an internal reality. This reality has various characteristics, acquires the psychological status of positive and negative emotions.
