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) “

What Do You Want In Life?

It’s one of those days when Ionestrangerock234.jpg simply let the Universe present me with whatever I feel needs to be mentioned at this moment.  I was originally just going to highlight an outstanding National Geographic documentary on Netflix called One Strange Rock.

(See the trailer here: https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=one+strange+rock+netflix&view=detail&mid=B8CF815A849FCE482960B8CF815A849FCE482960&FORM=VIRE ).

It is narrated by Will Smith along with numerous astronauts whose perspectives on our beautiful, blue planet were drastically shifted once they were in space. Their insights are truly mind-blowing.

The cinematography is absolutely astounding in this series–you could watch it for that alone; and the astronaut’s explanations on the Earth’s interconnected ecosystems and biosphere may radically affect how you view the Earth as well.  Life is a question of balancecarefully controlled balance of all interacting ecosystems—from the long-traveling sands of the Sahara to the Amazon rain forest’s biodiversity to the living ocean’s diatoms to icy glaciers breaking off and falling back into the sea. Pretty amazing how this planet’s life sequence unfolds.

Then of course I open Facebook to today’s installation on philosophical thought from a few of my favorites and I had to mention their posts:

As you begin to contemplate and think about the answer to the question, you’re changing your brain. When you make your brain fire in new sequences and new patterns and new combinations, that’s the beginning steps of changing your mind.

Decide on the emotions you’ll feel when you’ll begin to create that future. Teach your body emotionally what that future’s going to feel like. Don’t get up until you begin to feel those emotions. You have to decide what emotions no longer belong in your future. That means if you want to be wealthy, you can’t take lack. If you want to be healthy, you can’t take insecurity or fear. You got to begin to condition your body to a new mind. If you do this every single day, your personality creates your personal reality, and your personality is made of how you think, how you act, and how you feel.”  Dr. Joe Dispenza

rabindranathtagorequote345.jpg

“The touch of an infinite mystery passes over the trivial and the familiar, making it break out into ineffable music. The trees, the stars and the blue hills ache with a meaning which can never be uttered in words.”  ~ Rabindranath Tagore

 

Pure Consciousness

The concept of pure consciousness is a hard one to fathom because we are beings of limited consciousness trying to make sense of something that exists far beyond our normal operating capabilities.rainbowgeometryvessel.jpg

When Joe is saying that if you take your mind off everything that you think you know or think that you are, and simply stop thinking in general and simply BE in the moment—NOT thinking, NOT doing, just sitting quietly and breathing in and breathing out—allowing your senses to cease inputting the nuances of your environment to the ‘awake mind’ that interprets sensory data; then in that momentary silence and stillness you can actually tap (or merge) into the realm of pure consciousness that you really are—an energy molecule connected to and riding the frequency waves of the quantum field.

He explains a bit below on the Facebook link shown; and I know that what he is offering here is not free, but at least I can share the info and opportunity with anyone further interested in what he might be offering.

I do believe that the more we consider the possibilities of our true nature (pure energy), the faster we comprehend how “changeable” our lives and our world really are.  Of anything that he teaches, he does stress that changability aspect—that the world we create is of our own making, so we have to change our way of viewing ourselves interacting with our world and with each other, to make this a better life for everyone, including for ourselves.

“If you took your attention off of your body, your life, your identity, the thing things you own, the people you know, the places you go, and the concept of time, the only thing you’d be left with is pure consciousness. That means you’d be disinvesting your attention and energy out of this 3D reality and placing it on this immaterial realm called the quantum field—a place in which only energy, light, and information exists as frequency. And if where you place your attention is where you place your energy, and if you place all of your attention on this invisible field of energy that can’t be experienced with your senses—only with your awareness (or consciousness)—then you would be investing your attention and energy into the field. This is the realm that gives birth to matter. But how does matter take form?⁣⁣

joequantumfieldquote789

“If you stripped an atom down to its raw essentials, all that exists is energy and information, but the atom is not without design. Even at that quantum level, there within exists a structure and orderliness, so there must be some intelligence or force that is unifying and ordering them. The question then is—if you could get beyond your body, beyond the people in your life, the things you own, the places you visit, and time itself—if you took your attention off of everything material, could you connect to this energy? And if you could connect with this more organized, more coherent energy, would it not bring more organized and coherent energy into your body and life, both internally and externally?”   Dr. Joe Dispenza⁣

Perceiving the World as REAL

Checking my email this morning, Alberto Villoldo’s “Weekly Wisdom” newsletter came through with a quote that caught my eye because I’d been just reading and thinking truenatureofreality.jpgabout it: “…to interact with the vast information fields of the biosphere, you must enter a state of clear perception. Your mind must be at peace in order to perceive the true nature of the world…”

The other info source that I’d been slowly working my way through was Paul Selig’s third book in the Mastery Trilogy, The Book of Freedom.  Selig’s entire focus of this channeled trilogy has been to clarify our erroneous perception of the world and of ourselves in creating this presently chaotic existence—helping us to realize who we really are, what we really are, and how we really serve the greater collective consciousness, free of self-imposed limitations.

seligbk3freedomThe FREEDOM that the book declares for us is the freedom from fear—stating that FEAR creates our present reality—how we perceive the world around us, with us interacting in/creating that world, is the flawed nature of the reality that we mistakenly perceive as REAL.

So when I saw the Four Winds email this morning with the “…Your mind must be at peace in order to perceive the true nature of the world…” I knew I had to at least mention it here along with additional supporting explanations from Alberto Villoldo.

***

“…The Light Body

Shamans believe that the world seems real only because we perceive it as such and that everything we perceive is a reflection of an internal map that we ourselves, along with our culture, have constructed about the nature of reality. These maps are stored in what shamans know as the light body, and what scientists call neural networks in our brain. Shamans know that if they wish lightbodyrainbow34.jpgto change the outer world, they must begin by changing the inner maps, by healing the imprints of disease and trauma from the light body. They believe that the light body is the blueprint that creates health or disease.

When we heal our light body, we can access knowledge that is available to all human beings. In doing so, we could interface with the biosphere in ways we’ve never imagined, to upgrade the quality of natural information available to us, and install it in the hardware that’s been in our brains all along. …

… The Neuroscience of Enlightenment

Shamans believe that, to interact with the vast information fields of the biosphere, you must enter a state of clear perception. Your mind must be at peace in order to perceive the true nature of the world and not merely the reflection of your own below-the-surface drama created by your destructive emotions.

…  Power Up Your Brain: The Neuroscience of Enlightenment by David Perlmutter, MD, FACN, and Alberto Villoldo, PhD (Hay House, 2011).”

 

2018 Jan 30 —THE NEUROSCIENCE OF ENLIGHTENMENT

https://thefourwinds.com/blog/shamanism/the-neuroscience-of-enlightenment/

BLOG-30-01-18-3.jpg “…The Bible, Koran, Buddhist and Hindu scriptures all teach that we can be delivered into a paradisiacal state, whether after death, at the end of time, following many reincarnations, or as a result of personal effort and merit. This state of liberation is called grace or heaven by Christian religions, paradise by Muslims, and awakening or enlightenment by Eastern traditions (using various terms such as samadhi, mukti, bodhi, satori, and nirvana).

But what if grace, samadhi, and enlightenment are really based in biological science? What if they are states of higher order and complexity created by programmable circuits in the brain? Can neuroscience deliver on the promises presented by religion: freedom from suffering, violence, scarcity, and disease? Can neuroscience deliver us into a life where health, peace, and abundance reign? …

…shamans’ claim that they accessed information from the natural world―from the biosphere itself―by tapping into the invisible bioeco523wisdom of a field that permeates all of life. This web of life, which they refer to as the Divine Mother, is a living energy system that supports and informs all creatures. It is, in essence, a matrix of energy that connects all living entities.

This concept is making its way back into the minds of the science community. Scientists are also beginning to reconsider the notion of space as one huge void. A growing number of physicists postulate that space is not empty but full of energy―cosmic radiation from the Big Bang, pulsating electromagnetic fields, and gravity. Could this energy be a vast storehouse of information as well?

The pendulum has begun to swing back to the ancient belief in an interconnected universe and the importance of the divine feminine. Contemporary scientists, including the Noble Prize-winner Erwin Schrodinger, the neuroscientist Humberto Maturana, and the physicist Francisco Varela, have suggested the interrelatedness of all particles in the universe. …”  Alberto Villoldo, PhD

 

“Ultimate Manifestation”

What on earth is Ultimate Manifestation?

I’m alluding to a blurb in the book jacket of Paul Selig’s newest book soon to be released, called: Beyond the Known: Realization. seligbookcovrealization.jpg

Here’s the description:

“Expanding on and transcending his previous work, Realization, the first volume in the Beyond the Known trilogy, is composed of the pure, unedited words of the Guides as they share their wisdom and knowledge through Selig. It serves as a psychological-spiritual guide to take readers beyond the perceived limitations of accepted reality and open their minds to ultimate manifestation.

 

Maybe the erroneous words in my previous question were “What on earth…” because the book jacket interior mentions hypnotically ascending into what shamans would term “Upper World”—the higher dimension from earthly life where our energy bodies (spirits) go when the physical body dies.

Christians call it Heaven or the Kingdom.  Shamans simply call it Upper World.  I often upperworldshaman.jpgrefer to it as Spirit-world to avoid any religious associations.

So my next question would then be, if this blurb is referring to something called: the “Ultimate Manifestation,” does that mean that we are manifesting the Upper World dimension into this present earthly dimension, or are we somewhat “materializing/manifesting” some aspects of ourselves into Upper World?  Or is it a hybrid of both possibilities that is created when we actually shift our collective dimension into a somewhat higher-frequency plane than earth is, but not actually reaching the Upper World dimension?  Like a newer version of our reality, such as “Earth Reality 2.1.”  Maybe we are being upgraded?

I really don’t know.  Hard to say what it means especially since the book isn’t yet available to read—and I’m sure to some it’s hard to even imagine the possibilities of any of those options occurring.

Had I not visited Upper World myself a few times during my own shamanic journeys, I would have no idea to what he was referring.  But I have seen some aspects of Upper World—although my visits allowed into it were limited.

I’ve even guided hypnosis clients into that higher SPIRIT WORLD dimension where they met with their personal guides and discussed the “life lessons” that they had received prior to that particular past-life death that we had just explored from the vantage of a recliner in my hypnosis office on earth. etheralshamanicworld.jpg

One aspect of what I do in hypnosis is to guide a client into a Past-life Exploration or do a more in-depth Spirit-World Exploration.  From my various experiences (both personal and in helping others), I can say that when we all die, we go into Spirit-World (Upper World) where we assess the life just lived for lessons learned and for realizations made through living that previous earthly life.

We are instructed/assisted there (in Spirit World) by a master teacher or guide on better understanding why we just experienced what we did in that earth life; and we assess how those experiences best (or worst) affected us.  In most cases, we are then taken to a healing location in that Spirit World dimension where we are cleansed and purified and revitalized to cleanse our previous-life-lived, energy-body of traumas and emotional wounds (which is basically repairing any residual energy damage to our overall energy field) and to set the stage for what will happen next for us to explore/learn in subsequent incarnations into the earth plane classroom.

The explanation I’m providing on this subject matter may seem more simplified than it actually is in Spirit World; and some aspects spiritworldwebofspirit.jpgof that higher-frequency dimension are truly unrelatable to this earth dimension, so these descriptions often don’t translate well for our present comprehension levels, but… overall, I can readily say that I am personally aware that such a place as Upper World (or Spirit World) does exist, as are a few of my clients who also have experienced their own visits there.

And knowing that a place actually exists is half the battle to aspiring to reach it.

So when Selig says: “…It (the book) serves as a psychological-spiritual guide to take readers beyond the perceived limitations of accepted reality and open their minds to ultimate manifestation.”  …I’m guessing he’s referring to helping readers experience that nearly-incomprehensible, higher-frequency dimension for themselves so they can aspire to create it in their own minds and then make it their own reality.

If that is the case, when the book does come available just sit back and enjoy the journey as you read it.

 

 

The Higher Vibrational Match

“When there’s a vibrational match between your energy and that potential that exists in drjoehighervibrational matchthe quantum field, like tuning a radio dial, when you lock into that frequency, and if you keep revisiting that energetic signature every single day, then you don’t have to go anywhere and get it, the new job, house, or relationship finds you, because you are the vortex that’s drawing the experience to you. The universe only gives us what we think we are willing to receive.”  Dr. Joe Dispenza

 

Okay, let’s talk vibrations: Resonance, harmony, sympathetic vibrations, ….even though these concepts are related to SOUND and hearing, we also know these things at a kinesthetic level because we can FEEL them. Likewise with dissonance, disharmony, and cacophony.

Example?  Ever sit at a stoplight and a tricked-out set of wheels with radio blaring pulls alongside you with the bass vibes pounding so loud out of that car and penetrating into yours, that it makes your teeth hurt?  Yeah, it’s like that. That’s an extreme kinesthetic level of sound vibration.

With those vibrational sound waves that you’re experiencing from the overly loud music beside you, the bass vibe is so pronounced that it literally moves the air molecules in the vicinity and resonates with the metals near it. Were the tones instead in the opposite direction and focused with the same intensity on high treble notes, it might shatter crystal.soundenergyvibrat.jpg

So in terms of vibration, sound waves are something we can easily relate to—we all have numerous examples for how sound waves affect us.  Lightwaves are frequency vibrations and are similar in some respects and yet quite different in others.

Awhile back I gave a lengthy explanation of the Electromagnetic Lightwave Spectrum and how our basic human seeing abilities are limited to the visual lightwave frequency range (which we comprehend as colors from red to ultra-violet/white light … March 9, 2019—“The TRUTH of Perception”).

hawkins levels of consciousness scaleWell, this is hard to explain in a sense, but the world around us including ourselves existing in that world, are simply variable forms of frequency vibration: We are combos of sound and lightwaves with the upper extremes of those lightwaves being states of consciousness, with SOURCE (God) itself considered as the highest knowable lightwave frequency and from which all else is created.

So when Dr. Joe is talking about your “vibrational energy match” he is saying in a sense that to create the life you desire or to people your environment with loving friends, etc., you have to hold the energies of what you truly want in your life to ATTRACT those other energies to you.vibefreqcoloredhuman.jpg

You want loving friends, then hold that “I AM LOVE energy” at all waking hours because the energy that you hold is what is attracted back to you like a magnet pulls metal shavings to it.

The quantum field or SOURCE, is the ocean of all possibilities (all frequencies) from which individual waves flows. Each of the waves could be considered slightly different dimensions of frequency, so each wave is slightly different than the others in numerous immeasurable and presently inconceivable qualities.

We, as tiny human components, are more like individual droplets of water in that vast ocean with our personal energetic borders determined by the surface tension of the surrounding energy container that encapsulates us. That containment capsule holds our specific energy frequency, and we ride the wave of frequency that most matches our capsule of energy containment.

That encapsulating energy of containment that we know as our individual “energy field,” is what Dr. Joe is referring to when he says to raise your personal frequency (vibration) to match the higher frequencies to attract what you want to you.  If you want more love frequencies in your life, then you have to BE IT (hold love frequency) to GET IT.

In music it would be called matching tonal resonance or creatingviolinharmonyvibe a sympathetic vibration from the bowed strings of one stringed instrument to another. Sympathetic vibrations are when the strings of two different stringed instruments vibrate together at the same time when only one is played.

My above explanation more thoroughly explains most of his quote, except for the last statement which is repeated cryptically in the graphic.

“When there’s a vibrational match between your energy and that potential that exists in the quantum field, like tuning a radio dial, when you lock into that frequency, and if you keep revisiting that energetic signature every single day, then you don’t have to go anywhere and get it, the new job, house, or relationship finds you, because you are the vortex that’s drawing the experience to you. The universe only gives us what we think we are willing to receive.”  Dr. Joe Dispenza

I want to comment further on those two statements separate from his main paragraph:  “The universe only gives us what we think we are willing to receive.”

Or as the graphic states: “The universe only gives us what we think we’re worthy of receiving.”

Are they the same thing? What we think we are willing to receive, and what we think we are worthy of receiving?

quoteworthinessbrenb.jpg

Maybe or maybe not.   And actually I’m not sure what he said is exactly what he meant to say, because in one sense, he’s right about either statement, but in another, willingness and worthiness are not easily determined even by the most self-aware individual without considerable time and reflection, and likely some intense therapy.

So don’t get hung up on either of those two statements.

Are we all deserving of love and happiness?     You bet we are—all of us!

Are we all worthy of being loved and being happy?  Of course we are.  Only deeply-buried childhood issues might tell us otherwise, but those simply need to be addressed and released.

Are we all willing to receive the best that life has to offer?

Well, now that one is truly up to you, but if you have a chance to live a loving and happy life, why not take that chance?

I believe it’s worth it.

Technology Similes to Better Understand Life

The last few decades of technological achievements have provided numerous chipforbrainblue77.jpginnovations to ponder.  New information and new ways of living our lives are now aspects of current cultural and social advancements that previously were only considered as the subject matter of science fiction novels.

And likewise, we have new ways of ‘understanding something completely new’ by comparing it to something vaguely familiar—something already existing.  In writing that ‘understanding a subject better by comparing the unfamiliar to that which is familiar’ using the words “as” or “like,” is called using a “simile.”

This matters WHY?

Well I’ve been reading Paul Selig’s trilogy Book of Mastery (Book I), Book of Truth (Book II), Book of Freedom (Book III); and I find that the subject matter described within is seligbooksandvibrationtextmore easily comprehended because of my existing beliefs in multi-dimensions, multiple-lives, energy work, etc, along with my minuscule knowledge of computer-related technology.  It is the last consideration that I’m using for this ‘simile material.’

Prior to perhaps three decades ago when average households began their meteoric acquisitions of personal computers, most of us had no concept of such things as virtual realities or databases, and especially no comprehension of electronic communications systems.  (Hard to imagine, I know.)

But way back then, multi-function calculators were considered “high-tech” devices, and everyone owned a land-line or had to use a public phone booth to call anywhere.  How many of those are still around?

So now that these relatively NEWER electronic marvels are considered common fare and the latest and greatest innovations are often conversation fodder in daily office banter, our personal understanding of “all things possible” has risen sharply over the last three decades primarily because of how fast our electronic technology is advancing, and with that advancement our understanding what was once incomprehensible, becomes blasé faire.   bookofmasteryselig5.jpg

However, back to Selig’s book series and how this all relates.

The subject matter described in Selig’s trilogy is actually what I have been blogging about for the last few years: The ability to shift our frequencies higher to tune into a higher reality—a higher consciousness, and live a more loving and compassionate life in the process.

With the rise of Virtual Reality games and movies, that mind-stretching has allowed most of us a glimpse into considering the possibility that the life we are presently living is as illusionary as the VR game that we are playing with our electronic devices.

And with this consideration in mind, that also means that this life we actually do live is changeable in a positive way if the “collective consciousness” of our time can shift all our attention out of the ‘fear and hatred frequencies’ and into the higher frequencies of lovingness often called Christ Consciousness or Buddha Consciousness, or even simply called enlightenment.

We use those well known and well documented human comparisons of Christ- and Buddha-behavior to help the masses comprehend that softer/gentler attitude and mode of behavior necessary to achieve a higher frequency collective shift.  We refer to those known masters who highercomnsciousnessblue55best demonstrated what that loving kindness attitude and behavior is, was, or could be. We use them as examples—similes for depicting the highest standards of loving kindness because it’s pretty hard to relate to a non-descript ‘something’ called a “frequency.”

The importance to consider here is far less about the personage—the myth—the story of the teacher or human model (like Jesus or Buddha), and more about the higher FREQUENCY of consciousness that those models attained and adopted to reach that level of loving kindness for everyone and everything.  Once those consciousness masters successfully shifted their own personal awareness, they shifted everyone and everything around them as well by simply holding that higher frequency within themselves, because when your direct connection to SOURCE is that strong, you simply radiate that higher frequency to all around you.

And when the frequency that we personally hold rises to that higher level of lovingnesss then the world around us begins to shift higher because it has to match the frequency that we collectively hold.  I think the point of the Selig series is in learning how to shift your own thinking and behavior into that higher frequency Christ-/Buddha-consciousness range.

(For more on the frequency levels of consciousness subject, eyeoftheeyehawkinsyou might want to read Dr. David R. Hawkins’ The EYE of the I, from Which Nothing Is Hidden. Hawkins focuses on tying all awareness into light frequencies and calibrating the consciousness levels between the general masses and the great avatars/teachers who reached that state of extreme expanded awareness. I’m not certain I agree with everything he says, but he gives a thorough explanation of the multiple levels of light frequency consciousness per his theory.)

Anyway, the Selig books may be of interest to some so I’m mentioning them, and I do think I’ve noticed a shift upward in my own thinking since I began reading them—not so much that this subject matter is new territory for me to consider, but that holding that consideration so strongly for longer periods of time, is helping me to stabilize the concepts in my mind and to “think” from those view points and SEE life in a more clear, unbiased manner because of them.  Or that’s just my opinion and/or delusion.

The main simile of importance here is the one on comparing this life to a Virtual Reality game where you choose your scenario and your actions during the game. If you stay in the ‘fighting and killing games,’ it’s pretty hard to raise your frequency into loving kindness.lifeasvrgame58.jpg

 

So maybe it’s time to choose a new Virtual Reality scenario for all of us to explore.  This ‘fighting and killing thing’ is going nowhere good for anyone.
