First, I would like to thank my readers for their positive feedback concerning my articles. It’s a good way for me determine people’s interests. I am writing fewer articles as I am working on a new book. It takes me more than fifteen minutes to write one of these papers. I put some thought into how the articles should be worded.
I had a friend years ago (before I moved away) who I believe is still a chaplain for a small hospice organization. This Chaplin has a mystical perception of the universe, which made him unique among his peers. We would often have discussions about metaphysics over lunch. One day I was commenting on how I had heard that astral projection is frowned upon by those in charge. The Chaplin turned to me and said “Who are these people?” I said to him, “They are the people who run this place (meaning reality).” He replied “Who are they though?” My sense was that he was insinuating that there exists some secret order or mysterious network controlling the activities of humanity. At the time, I didn’t have a good answer. Since then, thoughts have come to me about this subject.
The simple answer is WE control this human experiment. I mean as human spirits. Spirits themselves are in charge of this whole operation. There are billions of spirits on the other side. I read somewhere that, at the turn of the 20th century, there were 64 billion human spirits on the other side. So who knows how many there are now. The point is there are enough spirits to manage every aspect of physical reality. This includes the way plants grow, the weather, the path of meteors, and everything that takes place in this universe. There are spirits who specialize in every kind of reality engineering, just as we have specialists in every area of the human endeavor. These disembodied professionals maintain control over the very complicated and delicate aspects of the functioning of this universe, right down to the atoms, and vibrations. My sense is that they are assisted by elemental and Earth spirits who do the dirty work.
I sense some sort of hierarchy of power within the spirit world. I am fairly confident in stating that a spirit must attain a certain level of growth before being given access to higher knowledge and greater responsibility. The level of experience a spirit has accumulated and the spirit’s overall maturity seems to correspond to the type of information the spirit is allowed to access. The idea of a spiritual echelon has been proposed by many other authors throughout history. I am merely concurring with this notion. It seems as though spirits are given a greater role in carrying out the provisions of the Master plan as they accomplish their missions. It may be similar in some ways to the mystical fraternal organizations like the Golden Dawn and the Rosicrucian Orders.
I use to believe that when a person transitioned, he or she would be instantly enlightened and have complete knowledge of God, the nature of reality, and the meaning of life. These are the subjects that interest mystics. As a relatively new Spiritualist, I have learned that most spirits know far less than a living mystic, psychic, shaman, etc. Usually family and friends will speak through mediums to confirm that they have survived death. That’s about it. They never seem to offer messages about what is going on around them in a detailed manner. Perhaps it is difficult to explain such things through mediumship. I’m sure there are cases where mediums have received some enlightening words, but barely enough to scratch the surface.
On another level there are entities like Seth, Abraham, Ramtha, Lazarus, Orin and Daben (and so on) who have provided us with incredible metaphysical knowledge. Much of this information is beyond the understanding of the greater part of humanity. This is only because channeling is not recognized by science as having merit. In my case, Arthur Edward Waite is my source of higher knowledge. Arthur is a human spirit possessing advanced knowledge. However, his understanding of the mystery of life is limited. You see humans are on the bottom of the pyramid in terms of being in the know.
Channeled entities, on the other hand, are higher intelligences. They are not human spirits in the way that we think of them (keeping in mind that I have not read many of these books). I have two theories concerning the identity of these beings. These helpful intelligences may come from other dimensions, which are connected to our human experience and to the Universal Consciousness. My second idea is that these entities are a conglomeration of spirits that have evolved into larger beings that speak as one voice through human channels. That is why you hear channeled entities speak to us in the plural “we.” Some of these entities may have explained the nature of their existence in their channel’s books.
I believe both of these theories could be true since some channeled entities have never been human. There are many other dimensions and extra-dimensional entities that work alongside us and who have an interest in our spiritual evolution. These channeled intelligences are our primary access to higher knowledge. The other way is through astral projection, which I have read is not permitted, even though many people do it. It may be that the Cosmic Administers believes it necessary to keep us in the dark in order for the great human experiment to take place. Were we to know the truth, this production would come to an end. Total global awareness may be the next phase in the Master Plan.

I have stated before in other articles that humans are collective beings. Each person’s consciousness belongs to a Higher or Greater Power that is composed of his or her past lives. That Greater Power will eventually unite with the Universal Consciousness. Humans understand this collective power as God. Consciousness is able to divide itself endlessly through a process called “splitting.” Splitting is a distinct characteristic of consciousness. Every time a spirit reincarnates into the physical world, the spirit divides so that a new personality is born. An incarnated spirit (human) is a new version of his or her past life personality. While the person retains some characteristics of their former selves, he or she is a separate individual with a developing personality. I say this because we are always experiencing personal growth. That is the point of reincarnation. It is a process of improvement.
It’s theoretically possible for a discarnate spirit to divide his or her (spirits are actually genderless) consciousness into two or more human bodies. In other words, the spirit may be born as two or more persons at the same time. This manipulation of consciousness is the opposite of Dissociative Identity Disorder (formerly called Multiple Personality Disorder) where two or more personalities reside in the same human body. I believe the shared consciousness procedure would be undertaken by an advanced spirit with the knowledge to accomplish such a feat. Perhaps a mystic like Arthur Edward Waite would be able to conduct a shared consciousness experiment. Not all spirits are knowledgeable in the ways of metaphysics. In fact, many of them tend to be quite ignorant. I base this on my own experience with the spirit world. I’m not convinced that every spirit in the afterworld has the skill and know-how to move objects at will, turn on electronic devices, possess human bodies for channeling, and do the fantastic paranormal feats we hear of in respectable magazines, radio and television shows.
I believe this unusual use of splitting can explain why two or more rational people can compellingly claim to be the present incarnation of John Lennon or Abraham Lincoln. Of course, since we are talking about celebrity figures it’s also possible that they are disillusioned. It all depends on what the person has to say and whether you believe him or her, since none of the information can ever be proven to the satisfaction of a skeptic. Splitting or reincarnation cannot be scientifically proven, but neither can they be disproven and therefore discounted. I assure you there are things beyond our reality that would frighten any skeptic to their core. These things I speak of have never been seen or experienced by most humans.
In the case, shared consciousness, I assume this spirit has a special plan in mind that requires a number of people to complete. Perhaps that spirit wishes to have each human part of itself work on a particular mission. Or maybe the spirit has a grand scheme in mind that requires a number of humans operating under the direction of its consciousness. I read that this was the case with the Christ Consciousness which was comprised of the Apostle Paul, John the Baptist, and Jesus. That may be the New Age version of the Christian doctrine of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. My point is the idea of shared consciousness is not new. I am not saying that every instance of shared consciousness between humans has the mark of the Divine Source on it. This is just an example of this special type of splitting.

The psychological confinement to the region of the five-sense reports is responsible for many of the unhappy situations. Those who go through a Near Death Experience sense the depth and the beauty of the afterlife perceptions beyond the mind.
This article is an earnest attempt to invite people to look into the matter of expansive consciousness beyond the conventional awareness. Not all of us can have a near death experience (NDE), but studying the messages (from those who have had one) we are able to have a glimpse of that consciousness. Then, our approach to daily life undergoes transformation based on the wider perceptions. Such perceptions help us have a candid relationship with Divinity. (In contrast, the self-serving activities through the practices of sectarian worship use God to one’s own satisfaction and security). Our relationship with all, and especially with our near and dear ones, become imbued with tenderness and empathy.
Now, we look at the messages from an episode of NDE. In general, the NDE messages take us into a different realm and that is how we step out of the conventional rut from which we all function. Religious affiliations serve only to sustain the ego-demands and keep us in that rut. The following NDE make us understand something about the universal consciousness beyond the mind.
Sensing from Consciousness: An interesting case study on NDE was reported by Jean Ritchie in her book on NDEs. In 1981, Milly Bull had a NDE when her car was hit by another so hard that it turned over three times and ended up on its roof. She was driving from Edmonton to Enfield at half past eleven at night. After the thud, Milly remembered a bright, gentle light spilling out all over the scene. She then watched from above, seeing herself scrambling around in the upturned car, climbing out of a window and crawling up a bank. Soon after, she moved back into her body and could remember the arrival of the ambulance. The remarkable thing about Milly floating above the scene of the crash is that she was able to view the car that hit her. She could see the make, color and the registration number – none of which would have been possible from inside the wreck of her car. By the time she came out of the window, the car had sped on. Let us also remember the fact that it was around midnight time. The only explanation there can be is that when we leave the body we are able to observe from a pervasive state of consciousness and not by using the senses. That state is not hampered even by the night’s darkness. With the information that Milly gave them, the police were able to trace and arrest the driver, and he was subsequently prosecuted.
Milly said she could clearly remember the lovely feeling she had after she floated above, looking down on herself. There was no pain at all. It was very peaceful and calm and she had a strange feeling of belonging to that consciousness. However, she felt that it is not her time and slipped back into her body. She became convinced that there is a time for each of us and until that time we will survive and pass over everything, no matter how hard the circumstances are. She said she had changed since the crash – a happier, more relaxed person to the point that she can face her own ending and that of her close relatives with wisdom and equanimity.
Once we understand the value of the universal consciousness, we begin to explore into it like a true investigator whose only interest is in finding out what lies beyond the apparent – no self-serving activity would result from it, even though an endemic transformation would take place.

Jewish religion, or Judaism, explains how transcendent controlling powers of the invisible world affect our material, tangible existence. In this respect Jewish religion resorts to the help of Kabbalah sound. Kabbalah numerology explains how names can affect our reality and daily routine. Names – or sound vibrations – are a source of powerful energy that people are often unaware of. Decision making is the main factor that can change a person’s life.
Names may have a great effect on the human subconsciousness, modify our thinking and behavior, and influence the way we make our decision. By studying these sound variations and the meanings that are associated with them in Kabbalah numerology, you can have a better control of your life. It has been proven that people’s names control the yang and yin (male and female) natures, bad and good emotions, light and dark powers in most individuals.
Certain sounds of a name may also attract certain energies, both positive and negative ones. That is why most events and accidents in life are related to the person’s name and caused by the energies that represent particular sounds of a name. Therefore, it is also important to choose the right name for a child that would vibrate harmonically with the child’s personality and environment. Many curious individuals have started exploring Kabbalah numerology in Jewish religion now.
By knowing the meaning of your name you will be able to activate the powers of the kabbalistic Tree of Life (frequently described by adherents of this Jewish religion as a map that shows connection of all living creatures and animate objects with each other) within yourself and reach your personal predestination. You can focus your attention on the sounds of your name, let them guide you and use them in concordance with the main numerological methodologies that teach you how to apply this knowledge in life. This new life style that Kabbalah numerology revealed is the way of adjusting to your name for a particular purpose or predestination you desire to achieve.

I do volunteer work at Allexperts.com, answering questions in several categories. One of the more interesting questions appeared the other day. It’s about the idea of spiritual attack.
The modern mind tends to explain negative spiritual dynamics in terms of hallucinations and, perhaps, mental illness. But it seems a more fruitful approach combines the theological belief in spiritual attack – which clinical psychology and psychiatry tend to overlook – with knowledge gleaned from psychology and psychiatry.
You can read the full question and answer here: http://en.allexperts.com/q/Paranormal-Phenomena-3278/2013/3/spiritual-attack.htm

How do you know when you are having the real-deal, God is talking to me experience, and not some slice-of-flake, koo-koo, false cognition?
After all, this is the assumption laden land of does God exist, is there a God, and if there was a God, why would God let happen what happens?
Debate, debate, debate, and you end up more-or-less where you started, stuck with opinion and some fancy word play. Often it ends up with people smuggly agreeing with each other, or, conversely, glaring and yelling and, well, heated arguments.
I know some downright evangelical aethiests. They seem to be so very fervent in their desire to word-smack some sense into the people who believe in Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, the Tooth Fairy, and, ugh, God, or even worse, Gods.
This is relevant to me because of my own personal history with spiritual revelations from on high. I have had those very personal experiences of intercession by God. Let me be clear about this: I mean I have had the experience of God coming into my consciousness and directly communicating with me in the form of thoughts. To me, at the time, this was the strangest and craziest thing that had ever happened to me. The experience was so NOT like any form of awareness that I’d ever had. It was clear, and I was awake when it happened.
Follow this link: http://www.thegodconsciousnessproject.com
I have to tell you that what happened to me was NOT me thinking a thought from inside my own mind. It was not like that, at all. It was such an odd and distinctive ‘form’ of experience, and I just knew, somehow, instinctively, that I was NOT doing it to myself.
I didn’t hear a voice coming from the wall, or the car radio, or, whatever. It wasn’t like that. What happened to me was so strange and, yes, powerful, that it did change my life. I had no idea what it was like to have this sort of experience. Sure, I’d done my share of reading about the arcane world of spiritual stuff. I’d read Authobiography of a Yogi. I had read the Bible. And I even had experienced clear transcending, what is sometimes called samadhi.
So how do you know when God is talking to you?
Well, you never really do. That is the very unsatisfying answer.
Here is how I see it. I am applying the Sherlock Holmians method, the Hercule Poirot system, the Philip Marlow school of detective work:
- Yes, you had a genuine, cogent experience of God Consciousness;
- No, you did not have such an experience, you are deluded;
- There is no God, so you could NOT have such an experience;
- Yes, there is a God or Gods, but God or Gods do NOT communicate with the likes of you. So you didn’t have, couldn’t have THAT experience;
- There might be a God or Gods, and you might have had the experience;
- Then again, maybe you didn’t, ‘cuz maybe there isn’t a God or Gods;
- Yes, you did have an experience, and it wasn’t you who did it to yourself, and it definitely wasn’t God, it was something or someone else;
- It was The Enemy!
- You were deluded by those who are telepathic;
- It was a practical joke perpetrated by God for some sick reason only God knows about;
- God is crazy, and now you are crazy, too;
- And so the list goes;
I have had some very interesting conversations with people about this subject, and the various subjects that spin off from, ‘God thinks into my mind.’
My conversations with God are personal and often take the form of me asking for guidance about something going on in my life, right now. I totally up for the debate about how I am just having a conversation with myself, and that somehow I’ve created this mental-brain-neural default thing that clicks over when I come at my own thinking in a certain sort of style.
I get this, for sure.
And I have to let you know that I am a wondering kind of dude when it comes to all this stuff. I know that madness and spirituality often are closely linked: It is oh-so easy to delude yourself.
In the Christian world of right and wrong, this ‘God is talking to me’ deal is dealt with by testing the God given contact by pouring the actual advice or communication through these filters:
- God will not ask or tell you to do something that goes against His Word, the Bible.
- When God tells you to do something, he will open the way.
- If it makes God look good, and doesn’t make you look good (or even makes you look like an idiot) there is a good chance it’s probably God. If it makes you look good, it’s you.
- The confirmation by people God has placed in our lives to help us hear His voice: Pastors, teachers, parents, godly friends. They can have their own feelings and fears, and this can distort their objectivity, and they can also be a valuable source of confirmation. Do not rely solely on their opinion.
- Pray for God to reveal His will, and carefully watch the circumstances that relate to that decision.
- The Biblical references are few and salient. Here is one from the New Testament: ‘Dear friends, do not believe everyone who claims to speak by the Spirit. You must test them to see if the spirit they have comes from God. For there are many false prophets in the world.’ 1 John 4:1 NLT
- Oft repeated in the Christian faith about guidance from God is the test of peace. Simply put, that when you consider the guidance and or message you have received, does it give you a sense of peace, of relief, of ‘rightness.’
So those are some of the Christian perspective ideas about how to test whether it was a genuine cognition delivered straight from the desk of The Big Guy.
Oh, I know I sound a bit flip about all this. And I am aware that my tongue often is firmly planted in the side of my cheek. So firmly planted that it might seem to have grown roots. Give me a break, though. I have had my share of God talking clearly to me, thinking right into my consciousness. And I have had those very startling experiences of being told something was going to happen, by God, and me absolutely NOT believing it would or could happen, NOT EVER! Impossible! Not just unlikely, but flat-Earth impossible.
And you know. You know…what I am going to write next. Yes you do! Those things did happen, just like ‘God’ told me, and when ‘God’ told me they would, too.
This has happened, over and over.
So, IF you have God coming into your mind and telling you to pick up the axe and go and chop up your family while they are quietly sleeping, my recommendation is get a new God. Do NOT do what THAT God is telling you to do. Fire that God, now. And go and hire a new God. One that you want to work for. A good God. A nice God. A God that loves you, and wants you to love, too.
Think about it.
