SEEMS THAT, in between our efforts to keep from
overcome by this surplus of energy that is flooding our 3D world
- there are those among us who are actually beginning to figure out
how to open and install some of this marvelous perceptual "software"
that has been bundled into those vibrations! And man, are we having
fun with it!
those of you who don't quite get what I mean by "perceptual
software," please let me explain.
The Reconnections, from
whom I channel, are constantly enlisting new and interesting
conceptual models to explain spiritual concepts which have no form
or substance that a normal human might recognize. So they use
get their points across. They say: "This is to this what that is to
that." In Jesus' day, we called this technique "speaking in
forget a scene from the movie "Stargate,"
where James Spader and Kurt Russell lead a group of soldiers into a
city, on a remote star system, in an attempt to commune with the
locals. In an act of hospitality, the King of the City brings in a
platter of meat for all of them to enjoy. What's on the platter
looks a bit like an armadillo, though it also has an insect-like
quality which could immediately give a person pause. The belly of
the beast is opened up, brimming with meat, and Spader's character
(Dr. Daniel Jackson) reaches over and takes a piece to taste. As the
rest of the company stands there, unnerved at the prospect, Spader
comforts them with these words and a smile: "Tastes like chicken."
moment on, my friends and I began kidding each other when we were
having new and unusual spiritual experiences or journeys. We would
smile and say: "Don't worry. It tastes just like chicken."
Technology and Human Consciousness
The Reconnections teach us that humans didn't just stumble on our
design for computers and other forms of modern technology. We
actually remembered them from how things work in our minds
and in spiritual realms. Of course, computers are primitive in
comparison to actual consciousness
- being limited to certain functions and tasks. But the protocols
they follow, and the terminology that accompanies those operations,
create a nice context in which to explain the workings of our inner
psyche as well as many worlds which interface with us at that level.
Virtual Reality Equipment remains somewhat undeveloped and raw. When
that changes, humans will actually be able to climb into
their computers, like spaceships, and take off for parts unknown.
Until then, we must be content with monitors to display our
journeys, and cursors, which declare to us "you are here."
When we look
into a monitor, it is correspondent to looking through our eyes into
the physical world. The desktop shows an array of icons (points of
interest), which can be clicked upon to go deeper, and open new
"files," symbolizing alternative
dimensions. When we
maximize a file, it is just like zooming through a portal, during
meditation. When we minimize, we "zoom out" and allow our Desktop to
assume center stage again. We can then survey our other options for
exploration, or we can log onto a Network, which allows us to visit
even more alternative realities, or to download files for later
sometimes hear a curious "buzzing" or "ringing" in your ears?
Medical Practitioners refer to this as "tinnitus." The Reconnections
call it the "Roar of the Multiverse", a sensory comprehension (and
download) of various "files" that are now entering our "hard drive."
Though it may take us quite awhile to learn how to open and install
them, the software is now present.
"you are here" reminds us of one of those directories that exist in
a super mall, doesn’t it? Even though the arrow (or cursor)
symbolizes "you" for purposes of exploring a mall, or a computer
there is also a comprehension that "you" are far more than a
monitor, or a few acres of land in the middle of a town. You are
all of it, because you are capable of viewing the entire
desktop or town, and going anywhere you choose.
In a recent
transmission, the Reconnections told us:
of you who
have awakened, via your internal "alarm clock," are now
flowing into the joy and challenge of Reconnection with All That
Is. Like twin serpents, wrapped around a central pole, the twin
concepts of Universal
Multidimensionality tug gently, yet continuously at each other
- balancing, contradicting, provoking, activating - as you move
surely and completely into the knowledge that
it's all you.
Everything you see or experience - within or without - is all you.
We call this
awakening process our "return
to oneness." Oneness is not a destination, per se. It is more of
a realization, an insight, a touchstone for our consciousness of
limiting beliefs and fragmented ideas. It represents a coming
together that energizes and refocuses us for going apart once again.
I named this
article "A Kick in the Astral" because that is the name given to a
current project we are sharing on our free
List on the Yahoo System. Collectively, we have decided to set a
date and time where we would "meet" in the Astral Realms. Our first
journey was to a hotel room, high above Paris, with a full view of
the Eifel Tower. This time, we're going to meet on a beach
somewhere. The details are still being worked out. The
Rosicrucians do this all the time, but their journeys and
meetings are a good deal more austere than ours. We're like kids,
playing with new toys. And that's fine, so long as we maintain the
same child-like innocence that Jesus refers to in his statement
about children and the
Kingdom of Heaven. If we try to get "cute" with our knowledge,
we run the risk of ending up like the Sorcerer's Apprentice... up to
our necks in waves of water!
As we gravitate from Old Paradigm thinking (Separation) to New
Paradigm thinking (Universal Oneness), our models for understanding
begin to change. Instead of thinking of ourselves as leaving
the body, and going "elsewhere," we begin to envision that we are
simply expanding our body... like a bubble... zooming out
with our lens, capturing anything and everything we wish to
integrate into our new definition of "self." Our Watcher Self sits
happily on the rim of the bubble, and rides the expansion to its
of us still look down, and see a sleeping body as we fly, we no
longer require a "silver cord"
to keep us from drifting away. In truth, humanity is now building a
conceptual bridge between these older concepts of viewing life (like
reincarnation) and the New Paradigm, which links everything to
here and now.
mentioned above (Stargate) provides some excellent visuals for what
many have described as Astral Journeys. One such visual is seen on
the Astral Journeys
Page of my site. But conceptual models for these journeys can be
as numerous as the people who take them. And this is what I mean by
One of the
benchmarks of New Age Philosophy is found in the statement: "We
create our own reality with our thoughts." That truth is now making
a big time comeback, packaged and exposited as "The
Secret." And, even as the "secret" comes to light, in mass
media, new "secrets" are taking its place in the worlds of esoteric
of these secrets is the realization that it isn't just thought that
creates, it is a person's entire vibratory essence that does the
creating. This "essence" consists of thought and feeling
and hidden desire and multiversal connection.
Reconnections once put it so well:
are so much more than you think you are. As it has been revealed
that the Eternal Creator has fashioned the work of His hands "in
His own Image." Realize now that the universe of your perception:
the people, places, objects, and interactive processes once
thought of as "containing you - but still essentially separate" is
nothing more than a gigantic self-portrait, painted in continually
expanding, repetitive patterns in every direction into infinity.
This is so because, in order to perceive something, a person has
to interpret the images that are being fed to his brain. With that
interpretation, the observer becomes the creator of his personal
reality. The grid through which all images and information passes
is made entirely of each individual's unique vibratory essence.
Therefore, his reality always "looks like him." Within this
incarnation, we will be sharing with you and through you all those
necessary "secrets" which can move all who believe on to the next
level of Infinite Being.
And so... my
very own "Kick in the Astral" took place... on November 11, 1991
(11/11/91). On that day, the Reconnections began handing me
"secrets" to expand my being beyond anything I could have ever
imagined. And, I am told, we all have our own "Reconnections" to
accomplish this purpose for us, when the time is right.
Energy Gates and Portals
In their series "Trans-Portals:
Energy Gates in Space and Time," the Recons had this to say
about the multitude of opportunities for Inner and Outer Exploration
which exist all around us:
around you, in every place, there exist Energy Gates - portals in
time and space - through which a person can pass to new life and
experiences. Some are visible, and some are of the mind and heart.
All of them are real. Some portals exist as specific places.
Simply to visit these locations is to be transformed. Other
portals require energetic "passwords" or "vibratory signatures" to
activate them. Still others - those connected to the highest
levels of transformation - require passwords, along with
"sponsorship" by an Etheric Guide, so that the unconscious or
unprepared can not enter them unaware.
are many kinds of Trans-Portals. Most are opened through the
verbalization of some goal or desire for personal development. In
such cases, the intent of the traveler becomes a blade that cuts
an opening in the Veil which divides the universes. Once a portal
is opened, your journey begins. A vortex draws the individual in,
and certain "changes" are effected, so that transport to an
adjacent universe can occur.
anything a person can visualize, within or without himself, can be
expanded to include the rest of what that limited figure
symbolizes. A single candle brings up the idea of "light" onto our
computer screen. Immediately, the "search function" for that term
produces a whole list of alternative renditions of "light" that can
also be explored. We can either be content to stare happily at the
candle, or we can initiate "software" in our consciousness to shift
our gaze from outer vision to expanded, inner vision. This was
called "the sight" in olden days.
person clicks over from 3D vision to Multi-D, his (or her) focus
begins to diffuse, beyond that candle or other objects of interest.
mind leaps through the Gateway of his
Imagination, which is a
real place, not just illusion. In mid-flight, a destination
is chosen, and a course is set.
create our 3D reality from nothing. We create it from the everything
that is always there, filtering out all the possible/probable
alternative realities which flow in that same space. When we diffuse
focus, it's like scrolling down a menu online. We find a "file" we
wish to explore, and click on it. Immediately, a new image comes up
on our screen. The Reconnections liken human consciousness to a TV
set, on which many stations are playing at the same time. If you
want to change a station, you simply change the channel, in just the
method I have described above.
Travel, or an OBE, is not just an "experience." It is an
operation that is conducted by Internal Human Technology. Those
who claim they've had "a harrowing experience" have forgotten that
they, themselves are doing all this. Still caught up in the
Separation Dream, they
imagine that something or someone else is initiating upon them, that
they have been "abducted" against their will.
waking up from a Separation Dream is a realization that WE and WE
ALONE are writing this novel. Recently, I had the pleasure of seeing
Notebook," a movie that was made from Nicholas Sparks' lovely
novel about a woman who is suffering from Altsheimer's Disease. She
keeps "going away" into a land of forgetfulness, and is gently
coaxed to come back by a lovely old gentleman who keeps reading to
her from a love story which she, herself, put into a notebook before
she left. It's such a great analogy for what our Reconnections are
doing for us now.
segment, I'll speak more about the New Paradigm Version of Astral
Travel, as described by The Reconnections. In the meantime, enjoy
each and every journey you find yourself making. We all "travel,"
many times a day! Your questions and comments are always welcome.
