Quotes from James Van Praagh’s Adventures of the Soul: Journeys Through the Physical and Spiritual Dimensions

jvpaotsoul23.jpg

Long ago I accepted an opportunity to receive the online PDF version of Van Praagh’s Adventures of the Soul  book that was made available (likely through Hay House). I’ve read parts of it but I’m more of a hardcover-between-my-hands sort of book reader, so the PDF has been on my computer for probably years.

JVP is also on my Facebook follow list so when he put something out today that resonated in me, I thought about his PDF book that I still have.

That inner nudge that I always follow said to revisit that long-stored PDF file because there was something that I needed to share today from that book.  So here we go from JVP’s Adventures of the Soul.  Whatever resonates today with me is what will appear here:

“— Your personality, memory, and mind are all contained in your astral body. When your physical body dies, the “real you” is still in your astral body, and it becomes aware of life outside the human body in the Astral Plane to which your earthly acts have drawn you.

  • The lowest Astral Plane draws the least evolved souls—those who have not learned the lessons of love and respect.
  • The intermediate Astral Plane draws in those who need rest and rehabilitation after a long physical disease, traumatic experiences, or inflexible beliefs.
  • The highest Astral Plane is what we humans would call heaven—a place of opportunity for souls to grow in spiritual consciousness.

— The soul will eventually decide whether to return to the Earth plane for more experience or to venture on to the Mental Plane. This level offers unlimited development of the individual soul. There is access to the accumulated wisdom of the ages.

— The highest realm is the Celestial Plane. Here is where the individual soul becomes one with all universal life. Christ, Buddha, and other great spiritual leaders are here. (p7-8)

You can be a well-read spiritual scholar, but unless you apply the concepts of love, compassion, and empathy to your daily life, all that book learning is for naught. (14)

Religion vs. Spirituality

Many people ask me about the difference between being religious and being spiritual. I think that difference is significant. Religion is a man-made, organized belief system consisting of various creeds, teachings, rituals, and documents and usually (but not always) revolves around a deity of some kind. If people follow a specific belief system, it is their conviction that this is how they will receive a greater position on the other side.

In contrast, spirituality is the very personal search to find the greater meaning in life and one’s existence in this world. It doesn’t have to involve rituals or written words and may encompass having a love for a Divine Source, or God, and learning to use this all- encompassing energy in every situation. In being spiritual, you have a respect and love for self and an understanding of your connection to others. (p15-16)

***

Everyone has spirit guides, and they can change with our earthly circumstances. We have:

  • Personal guides, who are people we’ve known in the physical dimension
  • Mastery guides, who are drawn to us based on certain activities we’re currently engaged in
  • Master teachers, who are very evolved and may never have incarnated on this physical plane (p29)

Since my NDE (near death experience), I have done some research, and I discovered that besides the feelings of peace and love that survivors experience, many people have observed a “weblike” matrix of interconnecting lights existing above and around humans. I think this matrix might be what is commonly referred to as the Akashic records, an energetic imprint of every thought, action, emotion, and experience that has ever occurred. Sometimes called the “Collective Consciousness” or “The Book of Life,” it’s the vibrational record of every soul and its journey. Everyone has the power and right to access the Akashic records because, as souls, we are the records. (38)

Death Is Merely Change

There is a monologue from Shakespeare’s play ‘As You Like It’ that begins:

‘All the world’s a stage, And all the men and women merely players: They have their exits and their entrances; And one man in his time plays many parts . . .’

I am very fond of that quote, and I’d like to take the liberty of expanding on it. Before the “actors” make their entrances, they choose the parts that they will play and whom they will play them with. And after they make their exits, they still watch us from backstage and cheer us on and root for a fine performance. When it comes time for our exit, they will be there in the wings to greet us, and we in turn will continue to watch the play and applaud for our fellow actors, before it’s time for them to join us backstage. Then we can all decide on the best time to make a new entrance, and in what roles. (50-51)

The love energy of each particular soul as it leaves the body vibrates at different rates, and the energy you happen to be vibrating at when the silver cord is broken will determine your place in the dimension of Spirit. The levels aren’t deemed good or bad (that’s not a concept in Spirit), just different. Some humans who made a conscious effort to use their free will to raise the energy of love on Earth (or who made the “tapestry” brighter) will gravitate to the corresponding level in Spirit, and those who lowered the energy will gravitate to a different level.

Just as the earth is composed of many countries, the Spirit World is composed of many levels. These “worlds within worlds” are energetic levels and not in a specific location. The Spirit World, or heaven, is not “up”; it’s interdimensional. Everything occupies the same space, but the energy vibrates at different rates, and each level is a solid, real world to those beings in it. (p70-71)

***

Like attracts like, so the beliefs you held on Earth about the hereafter are mimicked in the Astral World, for the sake of a smoother transition. For instance, if you have a very strong belief system as a born-again Christian, you will gravitate to an astral level that is the home of others of your belief system. The same could be said for nonbelievers or skeptics of life after death. They will of course live on, but they will be at a level in the Astral World made up of other nonbelievers who may not, at first, accept life past the physical world. (p73)

***

I was blown away, but then I realized that we are exactly what we think, and the environment we create matches the level of awareness we’re at. It is a misconception to believe that all souls have an immediate expansion of consciousness once they leave the body. You are what you believe, and you will expand and grow and evolve in your own time. (p74)

***

Random acts of kindness such as a smile to a stranger carry more weight than attending church every Sunday out of obligation. You can literally change the energy field around you by keeping your thoughts high-minded, and only attract those who gravitate toward the higher vibration. Remember that like attracts like, so when you bring that energy into your life, only good things can happen—and what you reap may arise from something you had no conscious awareness of sowing. (p78)

***

Souls in the Astral World may reincarnate directly from there, or they may move up to the subtler dimensions known as the Ethereal World….The Ethereal World—also known as the Thought Plane—vibrates at a higher rate than the Astral World. It seems to be made up of soul beings who have reached a point of purity of mind and thought, and really are connected to us through what is known as inspiration. …  It is a formless realm that is made up of pure consciousness. Thought and energy move about faster here than data in any supercomputer you can conceive of. …It is the place where the “higher self” resides. This plane is filled with light and love and truth. (p79-80)

***

The Celestial Plane is often referred to as the “Angelic Realm.” The souls who dwell on this level have achieved a particular degree of spiritual evolution and would be considered elevated beings. It is where angels and archangels; mystics and masters; and prophets whom we know as Jesus, Mohammed, and Buddha reside. …  The entities on this level have no humanoid characteristics and are connected to all life and able to bring the best attributes of higher conditions of being to others. This is also known as the bliss level, where there is a feeling impossible to conceive of on the lower spheres. It is tangible yet beyond the imagination and has been described as “divine joy.” (p81-82)

***

Your soul has delved into the dimensions of many worlds, planets, star systems, lifetimes, positions, situations, and experiences in order to bring knowledge, insight, and understanding to the world of Spirit. Just as a bee goes from flower to flower to bring pollen back to the hive, so does your soul go from life to life to bring your unique experience back to the Source. The soul’s adventures are always about learning, experiencing, expanding, and evolving.

People are constantly asking me, ‘What is my soul’s purpose?’ The easy answer is to love unconditionally. The energy that we call ‘love’ is what the world of Spirit is made of; it’s the natural rhythm of the Universe. (85) “

When I Was a Child…

childeyesface.jpg

King James Bible:  1 Corinthians 13:11
“When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a (wo)man, I put away childish things.”

***

My personal beliefs have evolved over the years, from what I was first taught as an impressionable, wanting-to-please-others child to my present state of open consideration for the mystical qualities of everything existing around me.

I have gone from believing what I was first told during my earliest comprehension of the world to now believing what I see, feel, hear, taste, smell, and inherently KNOW for myself about my immediate environment and my seeming relationship to it.

Throughout my life I might have been what a few perplexed others politely termed a “seeker of knowledge”—a “seeker” of how the world really is—a “seeker” of my true place in that world—a 2b65e217d7b64fcefa74b9beefbe607e“seeker” of a tribe to belong to and to share with my newly-found, intuitive truths.

I’ve even been (and still am) a “seeker” of TRUTH itself, because as I grew in years, I was ever more certain that what we all were being daily force-fed by others was NOT truth—it was just someone else’s interpretation of TRUTH.  And those interpretations of truth were often tainted by the life-experiences of the interpreter, or worse, tainted by the interpreter’s personal motivations for trying so hard to convince us that his particular religious decree was TRUTH—or far worse than that—trying to convince us that his was the-one-and-only-TRUTH for everyone.

Even as that constantly-questioning child, I could readily see the hypocrisy between the words and the actions of the parishioners attending church each Sunday—of the Sunday poundingpreacherschool teachers themselves—even of the preacher raising his voice and pounding his fist on the lectern or pointing his finger at the rest of us and calling us “sinners.”

To me that young sponge of budding awareness, being forced to sit there in that pew with those faux-pious people listening to that blunderbuss at the pulpit ranting and railing about our human weaknesses and frailties, just felt wrong, and I hated having to be there and being forced to listen to all of their histrionics and phoniness.

I didn’t realize back then as a child that I was a natural intuitive, besides being an empath—that means I could simply KNOW things and kinesthetically FEEL things about people and situations without knowing how I was doing it. But I did know that those knowings and feelings were usually pretty accurate.

zingerintuitive-empath

What I also didn’t realize back then was that those two slowly developing abilities—my intuition and my kinesthetic sensing of discordant energy vibrations—were my natural “BULLSHIT” detectors, and when those BS warnings were triggered in my body, I became instantly distrusting of who or what might be creating that energy dissonance within me.  That internal ‘BS buzz’ was an unpleasant feeling that I wished to avoid, so I often kept to myself in crowds unless I was near someone who resonated more purely and authentically.  Authentic folks (the gentle person they show to you is who they really are), I felt more comfortable with but they were rare finds in my early life.

Now from my present age and experience base (especially my experience as an energy practitioner), I more readily understand what was occurring back then with the ‘BS buzz,’ and can better appreciate my own early stubbornness at refusing to be brainwashed into the beliefs of others that did not resonate harmoniously with me.

Early in life I was once shy and kept to myself, but I’m no longer shy because I better understand what is really happening when I’m around other people now.  I can better protect my own energy boundaries and prevent myself from picking up the vibrational dissonance in other’s energy fields if I’m near them.

bsdetectormeter

And yes, I can still detect people’s lies and half-truths when I hear them, but I’m less concerned about being personally contaminated by their opinions and beliefs—because I need not continue to be around them or listen to them spewing it. I simply push an internal “MUTE” button for those folks and walk away.

Like the Bible verse above—the Bible I seldom, if ever, quote:  I put away those childish insecurities of needing to be liked and needing to be a part of the accepted group of popular opinion and belief.

I became a self-empowered woman.   

And I stand quite well on my own now.

On Wisdom, Compassion, and Mindfulness

doveofpeacereligion.jpg

I don’t describe myself using any religious term like Buddhist, Christian, Muslim, Jewish, Hindu, Taoist, Gnostic, etc.  I am simply me, and I see the world through my own eyes and filter the world around me through my own senses using my personal, internal computing system in all its limitations.

Not aligning to a particular religious belief allows me unfettered consideration of how various religions tend to view the world and try to make sense of people’s lives. I find that some aspects of various religions seem to have a ring of TRUTH to them, but often their stringent rules and doctrines of required adherence for qualified “believers” of that particular religion, will quickly turn me off to it.

So I can stand here on the outskirts of all religions and simply admire what I like about certain ones. In truth I do like Buddhism for its psychological approach to the subject matter of why we are here and how we should be conducting our lives in non-judgmental full awareness of every moment.

And as I understand it standing on the outside, there are different forms of Buddhism, one of which is the Zen approach, which is appealing to me in many ways because its focus is on helping people to see life as it simply is and live your life from the purest form of moment-by-moment awareness.medalionfor peacereligions.jpg

I see the value in this approach to life just as I see value in certain aspects of other religions. What this condensed article is describing is pertinent to the human aspirations I most admire: Wisdom, Compassion and Mindfulness. And according to this author, that is the point of Zen.

But I also know that Zen is considered a fathomless concept, and none knew it better than D. T. Suzuki. So if anyone is truly interested in studying more about Zen, he would be a good starting point.

The quotes listed here are from the blog article: The Way of Zen – Wisdom, Compassion & Mindfulness  .    Posted on October 24, 2014 by Christopher Chase (https://creativesystemsthinking.wordpress.com/2014/10/24/the-way-of-zen-wisdom-compassion-mindfulness/?fbclid=IwAR1baYMA9UAfRnPJliTnIjB7QWR4GUQAegOKV126aTsQV_vwmLMV1pXMY5g)

“Much has been written about Zen, but there are 3 essentials that are especially important. These insights and practices flow from the Buddha’s teachings yet can be applied by people of all religious faiths.

The first is the awakening of wisdom, what Buddha called right view. It’s coming to see the impermanence and empty “self” nature of all that exists. Seeing through the illusions of compartmentalized thinking to a more holistic understanding of how every atom, river, planet, galaxy and living being in our Universe arise together and flow as one interdependent ever-changing whole. …

The second is ethical conduct and compassion, valuing love and life more than material things, power or wealth. Supporting others, seeking to reduce violence and suffering, cultivating greater kindness and equality in society. Prioritizing peace, love and compassion is at the core of what many wise beings have shared with the world down through history. …

Finally, Zen teaches mindfulness of the present moment, observing what is happening without attachment or aversion. Being aware of what we are doing right here, right now, where ever we are. The practice of seated meditation is meant to assist with efforts to concentrate and calm the mind, but it is moment-to-moment mindfulness in all situations that Buddha most strongly emphasized. …

These three essentials taught by the Buddha: wisdom, compassion and mindfulness—are linked together synergistically and interdependently. When we successfully prioritize all three each serves to strengthen the development of the others. Over time (and with practice) we become more compassionate, wise, mindful, loving, joyful and at peace.    –Christopher Chase”

The Pretend Life

Lately there has been a running theme from a variety of info sources that I follow, on the importance of our being able to shift our skewed life perspectives and to welcome positive changes into our lives.positivechangeheats.jpg

During this tumultuous time for our nation and the world, not to mention in our own personal lives, I think it is important to consider what these folks are really saying about how we tend to view events occurring around us, what responsibility we all bear for allowing those events to transpire, and even more importantly, how we can shift our perspectives on any event to not allow it to emotionally affect us.

The only thing we do control in many situations is how we REACT, including how we REACT to difficult personal interactions or how we REACT to group decisions to which we personally disagree.

I will be the first one to say that NOT reacting is hard—at times VERY HARD.  But I also know that powerlessworeact.jpgwhen you can be triggered to lose your cool over any issue, either large or small, you have just given away two key personal-power stances: One, is that you’ve allowed another person or situation to pull you out of your higher-frequency energy posture and down into lower-frequency fear/anger-based thinking; and two, once your triggered reaction is achieved and you are about to explode back at them with an angry retort, you have just shown the other person or group that you are easily manipulated to their bidding simply because you can’t control your own thinking and emotions.

Dr. Joe is taking it a little further here. He is saying that the more you let your reactive emotions control you, the more you tend to believe that outside forces control your life. When this pattern of reactivity to external forces keeps reinforcing itself in your mind and bio-chemically within your physical body, it creates patterns of behavior and reactivity to every aspect of your life.

The more you condition yourself to respond to life in a certain manner, the more you reinforce that personal view where you see yourself as a ‘victim of circumstances IN-Life-is-ten-percent-what-happens-to-you-and-ninety-percent-how-you-respond-to-it..jpgbeyond your control,’ rather than the more accurate view of your having a choice and say in every decision you make that affects your life even if the most important choice is one of NOT REACTING to a stressor or an emotional trigger.

He takes it one step beyond by saying that our present perspective on life is based on past reactivity to any situation, that makes it ‘past-situation tainted’ and also means that perspective is likely untrue to the actual affecting influences of the present so that we cling to a view of our present lives that isn’t even accurate:   “The latest research on memory says that 50% of what we talk about in our past isn’t even the truth. So, we make stuff up about the past. People are reliving a life that they didn’t even have just to reaffirm that they can’t change

For all of us, there are events constantly occurring to us and around us. But what matters most to our personal wellbeing and mental health is how we see ourselves in truthful relation to those events, and our willingness to CHANGE personal behaviors that may skew our existing life perspectives.

Dr Joe Dispenza – OFFICIAL NEWS & FAN PAGE

The stronger the emotion you feel from some event drjoedis456in your life, be it a betrayal, or a trauma.  The more altered you feel inside of you, the more you pay attention to the cause outside of you. The brain takes a snapshot. It freezes an image and embosses that pattern neurologically in the brain. That’s called a memory. We create long term memories from strong emotional events. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Some people have stronger experiences in their life, and it catches all of the brain’s attention. So now they think neurologically within the circuits of the past experience, and they feel chemically within the boundaries of those emotions.
⁣⁣
⁣⁣
How you think and how you feel creates a state of being. The problem is that if you don’t know how to mediate or control your emotional reaction to that event, and you keep that refractory period of chemicals going on for standard periods of time that event produces a chemical change, and the body needs to return back to homeostasis or balance. But if it can’t, then the elongation of that emotional reaction for days or weeks is called the mood. You keep firing and wiring the same circuits, and you keep conditioning the body into the past.
⁣⁣
⁣⁣
So then you wake up in the morning and you look for the emotion. Now, all of a sudden you keep it lingering for weeks or months. That’s called the temperament. You keep it going on for years on end. That’s called the personality trait.
⁣⁣
⁣⁣
So then a person then is memorizing themselves by living in the past. And then you say to them, ‘well, tell me the story.’
⁣⁣
⁣⁣
The latest research on memory says that 50% of what we talk about in our past isn’t even the truth. So, we make stuff up about the past. People are reliving a life that they didn’t even have just to reaffirm that they can’t change

The Softer, Gentler Person

At times I wish I were a softer, gentler person.littlegirlkitten (2).jpg

I wish I could look lovingly at what I consider the lesser behavior traits of others and smile with unconditional understanding and acceptance.

I wish I could just acknowledge how much inbred hatred and fear we all harbor for those who appear different than we are, and yet say ‘It’s okay because we are still quoteongentle45 (1).jpgblessed and mutually bound by our hearts to a greater Divine Love that connects us all.’

And actually mean it.

But I know I am not really a soft and gentle person, no matter how hard I work at becoming one.

That’s just not who I am. I’ve been warrior in too many lifetimes. This I know from my own hypnosis, past-life explorations.

Right now in this lifetime, I’m probably as soft and gentle as I’ll ever be, and that’s okay because it’s who I really am. You don’t tame warrior, you learn to redirect it toward constructive endeavors.

I’m probably more like this ornery, ginger-stripped cat who now shares my house, than I really want to admit.  While I often wish that he were more loving and cuddly—more quoteongentle45 (2)like our many other beautiful, sweet cats of the past—he simply isn’t, because that’s just not who he is and it’s not how he will ever be.

He’s a fighter—a tiger—a ‘tear into you with teeth slashing’ little, orange manic that really likes to do battle even against a much larger foe. (Which unfortunately in this house would be me.)

So I guess that despite how I tend to think of his fiercer, less-cuddly mannerisms as character deficits, I do live with the correct animal match for my true personality. It’s just not pleasant to see yourself reflected in your pet house-mate that way.littlegirlkitten (1)

And when he does decide to snuggle in under my chin, loving me up with his raspy red tongue while I cringe and shudder until he quits, I know that this sign of deep affection is his way of showing me his softer and gentler self, if only for a few, brief, peaceful moments at a time.

 

The TRUTH of Perception

What is TRUTH?

truthlightbehind33.jpg

 

TRUTH itself is a vibrational frequency that our bodies recognize at a higher level. There is deep vibrational harmony in TRUTH. The body, especially the heart, feels a sense of deep peace on hearing genuine TRUTH.

With genuine TRUTH there is no feeling of anxiety or fear. There can be a fear of hearing the truth, knowing the implications that TRUTH will bring with it, but TRUTH itself is a harmonious, energetic feeling. Similar to a lie detector registering the galvanic skin responses of a person wired up to it, the heart registers harmonious vibrations as trustworthy for consideration.

So TRUTH is a feeling that we all can recognize at the energy level of our being if we allow our more sensitive systems to register it.

So then what is PERCEPTION?mirror percept33

Perception is quite different than you might expect it to be. Perception utilizes the body’s natural sensing systems (sight, hearing, smell, touch, taste) to increase its awareness of the environment it encounters at any moment. The primary purpose for utilizing the body’s sensing systems is to alert the living being of the potential in any new experience for safety or possible hazards—which can likewise translate to the body’s ultimate survival or extinction.

But for this post, I will focus on SIGHT—how we perceive the world around us as based on what we SEE; and we SEE because the eye is a smart-lens that captures LIGHT in the visible wave-length form.

Our actual ability to SEE is dependent not only on the apparatus of the eye functioning properly, but is also dependent on the coordination between the eye’s ability to focus that 3f734161510233ed217565f592b1def7.jpgoutside light to cell receptors within the back wall of the eye that recognize the raw electromagnetic lightwave data appearing before it, and the brain’s natural computing/assessment skills to then interpret that raw electromagnetic lightwave data into meaningful images that we associate with pleasant or unpleasant feelings we have previously stored in our memory base.

If we are only babies, it takes a few years of daily experiences to build a pleasure/pain “feelings” database to gauge a new experience against a previously seen/felt one; i.e., pleasurable experience you may want to repeat and painful ones you definitely want to avoid. ‘Neutral feeling’ experiences are registered only as known data.electrospec68.jpg

As you can see from the pictures here, the entire electromagnetic lightwave spectrum is far beyond our eye’s ability to receive data from it. We don’t see low-end spectrum microwaves or radio/television waves. Nor do we see the high-end x-rays or gamma rays with our raw eye vision receiver, but we can “perceive” those frequencies using instruments that are capable of receiving and translating those non-visible lightwaves into more recognizable symbols for us. If you use a cell phone, radio, or television, you are utilizing electromagnetic lightwave spectrum translators. It’s just that we tend not to think about it in this manner.

But in considering the entire electromagnetic lightwave spectrum, visiblelightspec56.jpgour visual perception is pretty limited to the visible lightwave range of from 4 – 7.5 x 1014 Hz .

Of course there are night-vision goggles used today that can amplify existing light to see at night; as well as infra-red, heat sensing devices to recognize a heat signature. So we already know how to “see” more of the electromagnetic spectrum than our naked eyes can show us, but this advanced knowledge that we now consider as perceptual daily standards would have been inconceivable a hundred and twenty-five years ago, before the first x-rays were developed in 1895.

From a broader view, if you think there wasn’t some sort of “intelligence” behind designing humans to operate in the manner that we do, look again at the picture of how the visual receptors of the eye recognize specific light frequencies.  Somebody or something had a specific purpose in mind for the human body, because we are just too well designed not to have a higher purpose for existing.

***

Finally,…this will seem like a long way to get to the ultimate point of this post, but when I suggest that there are other “higher realities” out there in the ethers that we haven’t yet been able to tune into and receive their transmissions, this is what I’m really referring to: Our abilities to perceive reality as we know it and receive transmissions from optional “higher realities” once we are attuned to receive them, is what I believe is happening now.  Our personal receivers are being adjusted now to pull in previously inaccessible frequencies so that our viewing options may shift higher soon.

That is my belief and my hope. But beyond that, I have no proof.

My only suggestion is this: Tune into the frequencies of TRUTH and tune into frequencies of LOVE, and let’s encourage the higher viewing options to appear for all of us.

Mystic Path to Cosmic Consciousness

“Those who have explored (consciousness) have never come back saying they are outsiders. They have not even said that they are insiders, because even an insider is separate. They have come out and declared, ‘Aham brahmasmi!’ — I am the whole, ‘Ana’l haq!’ — I am the one with the cosmic dance, a tremendous rhythm in which you disappear as a separate personality, and you become one with the whole.”

We shall be able to communicate with one another instantly, irrespective of distance. Not only this, but through television and telephony we shall see and hear one another as perfectly as though we were face to face, despite intervening distances of thousands of miles; and the instruments through which we shall be able to do his will be amazingly simple compared with our present telephone.
