Guidance: Other or Other Aspect of Self?

I’ve received a question so many times now, I’ll try to answer it here. The question has come in two forms:

“You’ve said that you don’t know whether the information that you receive when you channel comes from another being, or another aspect of yourself. Can you explain that?”

“You’ve said that during a ‘soul retrieval’ you might be retrieving parts of yourself. What do you mean by that?”

yupo painting2First let me say that I, like each of us, am limited in one way or another by my beliefs. Although my beliefs about reality may be much broader than many, I still have some limiting programs running, and those beliefs color how I perceive and understand reality, information I receive, and who/what I interact with in other focus levels or dimensions. This must be taken into account when you read this, because while I may seem to have clear access to information, I really have an access that is as clear as I can make at any given moment.

With that in mind, when I perceive other beings, whether that’s during a reading, when I’m channeling, or when I’m helping disincarnates, I perceive them as separate from myself, as other. A conversation is like a conversation with another person in this physical focus in that it’s back and forth exchange, and what the other person/being ‘says’ is often unexpected, or information that I’d have no way of knowing. I do perceive them most easily as Other.

In my understanding, however, my perception of them as one thing doesn’t mean that’s true. It could be only accurate as far as it goes. My perceiving us as separate doesn’t guarantee that they’re not also aspects of my Self, or that I’m not an aspect of them.

We assume that we are the individual conscious awarenesses of personality that we’ve been taught to understand ourselves to be within the thought systems of our cultures. I am this. It seems possible to me, however, that our definition of individual is just one choice of understanding or perception, and based on perspective. Change the perspective, and the definition of individual might also shift. I am also one part of the consciousness of “Woman,” “American,” “Sudman,” “archeologist,” or “writer.” I may be one one part of the consciousness of “anger,” “amusement,” “healing,” or “pig-headed.” Pig-headedness as a consciousness may think it’s pretty funny that I think that I exist and can function as an individual without the Pig-headedness consciousness, just as we would think it were pretty funny if our left hands all decided they were individual and could function and be individual even if separated from our arms.

That’s one awareness that I bring to Me or Other. I’ve experienced it in two forms, and so it sits. I don’t really understand it intellectually, but I feel it.

Another awareness that I have is that we attract or connect with that which resonates with our “chord” or energy signature. If I focus on a “place” where I connect with people who have passed over, I’m unlikely to be led to or drawn to or find disincarnates who are resonating at a frequency that I’m not holding. Or at a harmonic of that frequency. So far in my experience, whomever I encounter is likely to reflect an aspect of myself. I seem to connect with a lot of soldiers and other war-related disincarnates, and emotionally abused women and children and animals, those with an amusement and bemusement about themselves or their situation, those who are rather indifferent to their fate and are content to sleep or tune out or hold some state of suspension, for instance. In connecting with these people, I also connect with aspects of myself.

Are these people other or are they me? They may be both. That’s difficult to conceptualize because our learned perspective is that something is one thing OR another. I am this individual, Natalie, or I am other. Moving between worlds, I’ve often encountered situations where something is both this AND that, contradictory in our view of reality, yet making perfect sense outside of our perspective.

When I channel information, I perceive other – a being or beings who are giving me information, or actually speaking through my body. When I help disincarnates or interact with disincarnates, I perceive them as being separate and distinct from me. That’s what I’m most comfortable with from the perspective of being Natalie, and that may be what my beliefs support. Yet I try to keep my mind open to the awareness that my perspective is one limited perspective that may be accurate as far as it goes, without being true.

I may be holding the elephant’s tail, unable to perceive the whole elephant of my Self.

Our inclination is to find definitive answers. Our culture and science encourage and value definitive answers, definitions, proof, a big theory of everything. I’ve found that there’s value in sitting within not-knowing. Allowing myself to wonder without demanding or requiring a definitive answer allows me to expand my perception, open up to something I may never have imagined or something that defies my beliefs. Pondering without requiring full understanding or systematized definition can lead to experiences that expand my perception beyond current limits.

Meaning & Value

This is a response to thoughts and questions posted in the comments section of my last post, “Love, come on in this field.” I’m going to address the questions by writing in the form of a channeled answer, because the answers that I have originate from the non-physical perspective, from the Whole self and the knowledge available there. It’s easiest for me to maintain a non-physical perspective to gain accuracy and stretch conceptual understanding, and that comes out in a distinctive voice that often feels as if it’s only partly mine. Keep in mind that this is only what I know through my own experience.

The questions were these:

2013-02-map-desertsun-ws

My struggle these days is with “meaning.” If every path is “valuable” then that’s the same as saying that “everything has value” which is really the other side of the coin which says “nothing has value.” What’s the point of all of this? Distraction?

So allow us to address these one at a time. In this way we will arrive at a coherent whole that addresses the question of “meaning”.

If every path is ‘valuable’ then that’s the same as saying that ‘everything has value’ which is really the other side of the coin which says ‘nothing has value.’

Consider this: If nothing has value, then everything is valuable.

Why do you end the thinking with ‘nothing has value,’ when you could end it with ‘everything has value?’ This is indicative or revealing of the thought forms or beliefs on which this confusion is based. We give you this to ponder.

If you have a $100 bill, you will perhaps think that it has more value than a nickel. Yet if you have need of a nickel – or any coin – and all you have is the $100 bill, of what use to you is the $100 bill? It is still valuable, yet situationally useless.

If you have the skill of a nurse, yet find yourself in need of an engineer’s knowledge, of what value is your nursing skill in this moment, in this situation? Your skills may be of little value, …

And yet the experience of being in a situation where your $100 or your skills are of no use has potential value. It may be that by experiencing this situation you explore and experience deferring control to another whose skill sets are situationally valuable (in the second example), or perhaps this situation offers the opportunity to learn through observation of the engineer applying her skill. Et cetera. What we are saying here is that even when a something appears valueless, value can be found or experienced. It may only be that the value is found outside the normal belief structure of one’s value system.

This discussion of value is necessary, for the basis of this questioner’s confusion rests upon the mistaken concepts of value that have been inculcated through culture. If everything has value, it does not mean that everything is the same. It means that everything is uniquely valuable. Does Michelangelo’s David negate the beauty of the Mona Lisa? Does the balance of a leaf negate the need for the cloud? Does a doctor’s skill negate the need for a bricklayer? Of course it does not, for the value of anything that exists rests in its unique signature, its unique being-ness, different from any other being-ness and so each is and experiences being as an invaluable cog in the immense beauty of creating and creation.

What is the point of all this?

What a question, surrounded by the incredible and glorious intricacies of creativity manifested through the very existence of a physical world. What if it is only that, to experience beauty? What if it is only this: for the pure joy of exploring expression, of exploring creative experience? Would this be a disappointment? But what could be more valuable than joy? What could be more valuable than beauty and infinite creativity?

This is a hard sell in the physical world! The underlying beliefs of the culture do nothing to support this truth. Value comes from hard work, hard experiences, suffering … this too is true, for these things are joy and beauty to the Whole Self who crafts them. They are valuable. They are valuable because of the ultimate joy and beauty and experience that they are to the Whole Self.

From the point of view of the physical mind, there is a grand desire to be meaningful and valuable, for one’s life to be of meaning and value. But these judgments are made from a limited mind trained into limited beliefs. We assure you that you cannot do otherwise than have a meaningful and valuable life. Because all experience is ultimately valuable. If some path allows your conscious mind to gain satisfaction and a sense of meaning and value, by all means, explore that path. Yet understand that its meaning and value most likely rests within the plot of the movie that you have immersed yourself within. When the movie is over and you regain your awareness, when you re-focus upon the reality of who you are – more than your physical body, more than your emotions, more than your present thoughts – you will have a different perspective. You will not judge meaning and value, for you will assume meaning and value.

We will leave it at that for the time being.

Also, if ultimately there is only One being, then is not that being solitary and alone? How sad.

Your concept of One being is necessarily limited by your conceptual understanding of individuality. Would you say that the flock of a thousand birds flying together, dipping and swooping in perfect harmony, is a single? Would you describe the colony of ants as one being? You perceive them as communities of separate beings only because that is how you have chosen to perceive reality. Each of these communities can also be accurately and truly called a single One. One mind. One action. One being. So too do some perceive the human race as one being. This too is a matter of perspective.

You are taught to perceive yourself as an individual. You are taught that you are one individual yet you are part of many Ones – you are female or male, American or Chinese or Aborigine, you are earthling, you are a teacher or a spy or a cheesemaker. You describe these as peripheral, these groups that you are part of, but it is just as valid to perceive these groupings as the individual, and you as a piece of the group mind. You are a little part of many ones that makes up the One, in this perception.

Is your family the same family without you? It is not. The One of the family is changed by the absence of any part of itself. Is the body the same body when missing one eye? It is not. The nature, the character, the capacities and the potentials of the family or body are different when a part is missing.

Is the family or the body any less valuable for the change in its contents? It is not – it is different, not better or worse. So now we find ourselves back to the question of value. In the physical world value is assumed as a hierarchical order, but this is unnecessary. It is inaccurate in the scheme or perspective of the All. Value does not imply nor require a hierarchy. There is value in every being-ness, in every experience, in every exploration, in everything that exists. This is explained in Application of Impossible Things [my book], in any case.

The ultimate One, the All, is made up of all. It is in and of and through all that exists; it creates and is created by all that exists, physical and non-physical, potential and probable, manifested and yet to be created. Do you find yourself lonely? Do you find yourself sad? Perhaps not, for while you perceive yourself as one, separate and therefore potentially lonely, you are all that is, for you embody the All, you are the experience and be. And as you perceive that you are not alone, so the All is all, infinitely inclusive and how then is loneliness possible when all are the One?

Soul Retrieval: is it all good?

I’ve received this question so often, I thought I’d make it easy on myself by answering it here. The answer will be my understanding of this and while I believe it to be accurate, a fuller truth may exist. So as usual, I encourage everyone to hunt for their own answers.

The question is this:

How does the idea of soul retrieval stand in relation to “all is well”? If souls can be “lost” or “stuck” then … well, all is not necessarily well. If all is well, then what are we doing when we “retrieve” souls who appear to be stuck or lost?

The use or understanding of the term “soul retrieval” is based on perspective. From the perspective of the physical conscious mind, from within the movie, the term is appropriate. Yet from the perspective of All That Is, the oneness that we are, a “lost” soul would appear as just another role being played, an exploration underway. The “lost” soul’s experience, that is, the role or exploration that they are experiencing, is real in that they are immersed in it, just as one would immerse oneself in a movie while it is being played on the screen. Just as you feel the earth reality is real, acting according to the environment that you exist (are focused) within.

We enter this environment choosing to live life from within constrictions on awareness. The constrictions vary in depth and breadth from person to person, yet all live under constrictions of understanding or comprehension. Even those who appear to have a direct line to the All That Is are not fully cognizant of all that is. The human brain, as a mechanical processor, is currently incapable of fully comprehending all that is.

So, the premise of this physical existence allows for an immersion. The non-physical also allows for that on differing levels and intensities. It is often believed that the physical is consistently one thing, and the non-physical is consistently another one thing. This is not true. First note that there are overlaps between physical and non-physical – quite extensive overlaps in some cases. Here is also There. There is also Here. Then note that there are many movie sets or realities or environments within what is currently understood as the non-physical. Some of these other environments have a physicality, some have none, some have variations that would be too numerous to describe. The All That Is is infinite. Do you think it is limited to this and that? It is this, that and everything between, everything ever imagined by any being, for in the imagining lies the seeds of creation.

So keeping these things in mind, it becomes obvious that there are various levels of awareness available on the non-physical planes. In the physical earth world it is thought, “This is alive, and this is dead.” As if each offers only one state of being. Yet even within the “alive” or “conscious” are there not degrees of awareness and aliveness and interaction? One person is intensely here, vibrant and attentive. Another is dull, incurious and somewhat stupid. Some are aware of energies and use them for healing or other applications; other people deny the existence or validity of any of this. Neither is better or worse from the viewpoint of All That Is, for all are valuable experiences, explorations. I use this example to point out that the same sorts of differences, or correlating ones, can be experienced on the non-physical. Dead is not one kind of dead. The non-physical is not one place, zip. Everyone need not go rocketing off to the same place upon death. There are infinite choices – choices made by the Whole Self, not necessarily the blind focused thread of self that is experiencing this physical experience, and not necessarily the blind focused thread of self that is experiencing whatever its experiencing after its shed its physical body.

Let us take as an example a woman whose physical body has perished. This spirit may pass out of the body without quite realizing what has happened. This can happen for many reasons, in this case we will imagine that her physical conscious mind believed, “when I die, x will happen.” Since that x did not happen, the focused mind of the woman concludes that its body has not died. So she continues to move and act and follow thought patterns as if she still had a body. Thought being creation, and there being here, the spirit can pass out of the body only to find itself in a reality that is equally real to her experience. She has created it with her thoughts, or been attracted by resonance to a non-physical place that looks and acts like this physical reality and that already exists and mirrors what she expected, or she may inhabit the “physical” reality simultaneously with those who retain their physical-ness.

It may be worthwhile to remind ourselves now that the physical is not physical in an ultimate sense. Everything that appears to be solid is simply an organization and density of energy. The physical world is an energy imprint not unlike her after-death body. It is non-physical in a sense. There is Here. I emphasize again that the physical and non-physical overlap. The physical world is an organization of intention that appears to you as physical. Yet it is also a real “place” from both the physical and non-physical perspectives, and the non-physical places are perceived, from within the experience in them, as equally real. The ways of perceiving a difference between physical and non-physical are – to an extent and for this discussion – learned and perpetuated through training children what to filter out and what to maintain as important, relevant, and “real.”

Time and space are, of course, also organizations of intention. Consider them as fields (as in physics), where many things exist within the field at once, so perception of or experience within the field may be different from one place to another, depending on the perspective gained from this or that point within the field, or depending upon the nature of the field in this or that area – its density or other characteristics. This is one perspective that describes the perceived differences between that which is termed “physical” and “non-physical.”

With these ideas in mind, the dead woman who still exists is aware and cognizant within an overlap of time/space if you wish to imagine it in this way, no matter where she “really” is – within the physical plane interacting with physical objects, or in a non-physical place that mirrors this place, or etc.

I divert into this discussion in order to explain that the “lost” souls are having a real experience – as “real” as the experience we are having. They may be in their own constricted awareness, just as we operate from within our own, and this is what gives the appearance of being “stuck” or “lost.”

The “lost” soul is not lost to the All That Is. Eventually this spirit will find its release from its own illusion and move on.  In the meantime, it is exploring an experience, which has value to the spirit, and to the community of All. That is true from the perspective of All That Is. It is all good.

From the limited perspective of the physical consciousness, and some non-physical awarenesses, the “lost” or “stuck” spirit does appear lost or stuck. That perspective is also true, for that spirit is experiencing its situation as real.

The value in “helping” the “lost or stuck” spirits is real as well. If you see an old woman fall to the sidewalk in front of you, aren’t you likely to bend down to ask whether she’s hurt, and either help her up or summon medical assistance? You likely do not nod and say to yourself, “Yes, that old woman did the perfect thing within the All, falling down. Her experience is perfect and does not require my help or assistance.” Just as helping this old woman when she falls is a valuable expression of shared connection, shared experience, shared beingness and exploration, so too is the exercise of helping “lost or stuck” souls a valuable expression of the oneness of all of us, the inter-connectedness of all of our experience.

When one enters the physical world, it is in a sense completely your world. You have created it and you are, in a very pure sense, the only one experiencing the particular and unique world that you have created. At the same time, your world interacts with and overlaps with the worlds of countless other beings, physical and non-physical. Ignoring interaction between your worlds could diminish the rich potential available in your own. (I won’t say more on that, though there would be more clarification available – it is not a salient point to this particular discussion and I encourage you not to entangle yourselves in it unnecessarily. Take it at face value for this discussion.) So when you have the opportunity to assist or interact in positive ways with those who appear “lost or stuck,” consider that they may on some level be creating this situation as an opportunity for you or another, or many, to interact with them in a particular way. They may be giving you an opportunity to do a good deed, as a simple example, which may boost your self confidence and satisfaction and happiness. They may be creating that opportunity from a higher self level, while the portion of themselves within the experience remains constricted and blind to that knowledge. Does that diminish the value of it? Of course not.

(I’ll skip a discussion of the “lost” souls perhaps being other parts of oneself … maybe a discussion for another day.)

Now I’ll also suggest that leaving the old woman lying on the ground, just walking around her, would also, from the perspective of All That Is, be good. It would be an exploration of experience, a creation, and from the perspective of oneness, all exploration is good and valuable. This does not excuse anyone, however, from judging the value of that action from within the perspective of the physical world awareness. This has been explained more clearly and fully in my book. I mention this in the context of this discussion just to make the point that it would not be wrong or bad or evil from the viewpoint of the All That Is to let “lost or stuck” souls find their own way, to pass them by and go on about one’s business. In doing so, the passerby will be exploring their own experience, and it is a valid exploration. In contrast, those who do help the “lost or stuck” souls also explore a valuable experience. It is a different experience.

Conscious minds insist on maintaining one perspective or seek to find the “right” perspective, as if that is always useful. I understand its simplicity and the longing for clarity. But it may be that nothing can be answered definitively from one perspective while within an experience. If you cannot integrate two ideas, then look at the ideas from other perspectives and see what you will learn about both the ideas and the perspectives.

The current physical world’s context matters. So does the perspective of the All, and the All Is Good. They are reconciled in experience, not as a single perfection, but as an ongoing exploration. One of the values of experience for a soul who enters the physical universe world is that the soul experiences confusion, the validity of many perspectives, the richness of many perspectives, the grey areas, choice and internal expansion of perspective, cause and effect, and creation. Integration will come from embracing more than one perspective, applying them side by side, overlapping them, choosing which is appropriate for what action or context. It would be of little use to entirely immerse oneself in the All perspective when filling out tax forms. It would be useless to entirely immerse oneself in the earth perspective when attempting to help a “lost” soul.  (“Render unto Caesar what is Caesar’s; render unto God what is God’s.”) It may be useful, however, to maintain a bit of awareness of the All perspective even while filling out tax forms, or useful to maintain a bit of the awareness of one’s physical existence even while helping a “lost” soul. Or not. That is a choice.

In seeking to expand awareness, it is not necessary to constrict oneself to what is thought to be the right or wrong perspective, what is the real or not real perspective, what is the true or not true perspective. Keep always in mind the words exploration and infinity. In seeking to expand one’s awareness, it is of little use then to attempt to constrict oneself to a single perspective. For the All encompasses all perspectives, all realities, all ideas, all experience. This is unconditional. This is co-passion. When exploring with discernment and attention, curiosity and honesty, open to your own understanding and flexible enough to change that as experience grows … when exploring in that way, integrated awareness may come without effort.

No soul can be ultimately lost. Within their experience, a soul may be “lost.” No soul is stuck for eternity. Some souls may welcome a helping hand.  It’s all good.

Psychic Protection

This is a post inspired by a comment from a reader  – cheers, AgentSully.

[Insert usual explanation of my channeling here – or go look at the post entitled Suicide to read the explanation … ]

*

Me: Talk a bit about psychic protection, please.

Them: Psychic protection can be necessary we would say, or at least desirable for some. It may be understood as protection from the poorly formed ideas within your own mind, the misconceptions and misunderstandings within the mind, or as protection from particular beings who are separate from you or the thought forms that originate from beings less scrupulous than they might be with their creations. Either would be true.

We will first speak from within the viewpoint of the physical realms, from within the illusions or energy systems set up for this realm. They are real, remember, from within the realm.

Being within the physical planes of existence, know that there are certainly those who do not necessarily act with the awareness of their participation within the All. This is not to say that what they experience is outside of the All, only that they are unaware on some key level, and within their own free-will-creations they may be wagging the dog, you will say. Meaning that their free will actions are allowed free rein by the whole self, the whole self (the dog) then following along after the wagging tail, perhaps only stepping in if things get too far out of hand, for instance.

The individual is given free rein to some extent, and so may be shaping themselves or others into beings that one would not necessarily care to interact with.  You will recognize this. We speak from one particular viewpoint, within or not far from the physical, you understand. Please acknowledge.

Yes, I understand.

This assumes willful or inadvertent blindness to one’s true nature. It does not presuppose that some of these beings are inept with energy, consciously or unconsciously. On a very basic level, you have encountered people who seem quite kind and friendly, yet when you leave their presence you feel completely drained and must go lie down and somehow recover and recharge your energy. They are in fact feeding off of your energy, consciously or unconsciously, believing that they are not adequate unto themselves, having lost the memory or skill to connect with the All, the Sea of Awareness, to refresh and charge their own energy. They are yet skillful enough to gather the energy of others, believing that is the only place they can get it.

Another example would be those who do this without being within one’s physical presence. We speak of the friend on the other side of the state, the mother on the other side of the continent. Unconsciously or consciously, they may draw upon your energy and insinuate their own presence into your energy space. They may be physical personalities who do this unconsciously or consciously, or they may be beings that exist within the physical but are not always manifest as visible, shall we say. These are not fictions, they are real within the viewpoint of the physical realms. We would like to stress this without entering into that discussion.

In the case of leaving one’s body to explore the universe or other realities, other vibrational planes or places, dimensions, we will also say that it is possible here to encounter those beings that do not have respect for another. They will, if possible, cling to you or appear to interfere with your energy and comfort. It is valid to put up some protection from these beings if one chooses not to explore one’s own power over self in the presence of them, or to explore the nature of these beings.

We will leave that as is, for more will be said in a moment about this.

From the view of the All of All, from within your awareness expanded to its fullest, we would remind you that nothing comes into your experience that you do not invite or allow as a whole self. In this viewpoint, if you have encountered those who you feel you need protection from, what is it in yourself that has attracted or allowed this reality to enter your own? It may not be that you yourself harbor some mirror of this being, we would point out. It may be that what attracts them is a kindness or a curiosity. What attracts them may be a whiff of fear. This is not meant to alarm, frighten, or appear as an accusation, that something in the self allows the experience – it is presented here as a hint on the road toward understanding.

As an example, at one point Robert Monroe recounts that upon leaving his body he found two small beings clinging to him. (I don’t recall which of his books this story is in.)Monroe was disgusted and frightened by these beings piggy-backing on him. He fought to get them off of himself and could not. He begged for assistance. A man came, plucked the beings from him, smiled and left. Monroe was not amused.

Many years later he was given to revisit this incident from another viewpoint. Monroe found that he himself was, in fact, the man who came to help his struggling younger self. To avoid confusion, let us refer to him now as Young Bob (struggling with clinging things) and Old Bob (returned to help himself struggling with clinging things). The two small beings that frightened Young Bob so much, those that he tried desperately to remove, were seen from the viewpoint of Old Bob to be his own two small children’s spirits. As Old Bob, the beings did not appear malevolent or frightening at all, because he could see them clearly, without his own fear and surprise standing in the way.

It is unlikely that were one to encounter frightening beings, or beings who drew from one’s energy, that one would be able to effortlessly move oneself into a new mindset or viewpoint from which to assure oneself of what was really happening. We want to apply ourselves to explaining this in order to avoid misunderstanding, for we see that it would be quite easy for the human to imagine that because this viewpoint is smaller (Young Bob), it is wrong, or foolish, or something to be corrected. This is not necessarily so.

At any point in time you will know what you know, no more, because that is the beauty and comedy of the human realm. Remove all judgment and competition from the two viewpoints, and you will find the beauty in each. One is not wiser, only broader. One is not more valuable than the other, for they are both necessary to each other. The situation is not a test, it is only an experience. It has no potential for wrong action from either viewpoint, only the possibility of an expansion of understanding.

We would say this: do not attempt through force to convince yourself of the benevolence of something that is frightening, disturbing or otherwise unpleasant just because it might be something good if only you could see its goodness. Certainly reflect, consider, open yourself to the possibility of goodness, but we would also say that being within that which you feel honestly, that viewpoint where you are right now, is important and valuable. Monroe’s Young Bob experience had value.

You are within the human experience for valuable reasons – reasons valuable to you. So be within the moment – trust that moment. If you deny the moment you are in, will you not miss an opportunity? If you feel fear, feel it. If you feel disgust or revulsion, feel it. That is what you are here for, to go through the moment.

This is not to encourage you to lose track of the awareness that you are experiencing from this limited perspective. You are not a being wholly of emotion, for emotion is the result of perspective. Certainly train your perspective, open it back up out of the culture’s misconceptions when possible. We simply encourage you here not to deny emotion as it moves through you. Allow it to move while you also maintain what we will call intelligent emotion – the awareness of the whole self, the value of spirit-informed reason. The energies of an emotion can flow through the body and mind without them being acted out without control, upon oneself or another, is this not so? The expression of emotion is a choice. Your reason has its place in this equation.

We do not wish to get sidetracked (too late!) … what we wish to say is only that denying yourself the truth of yourself is a denial of yourself. In order to move forward, one must first be wholly aware exactly where one is.

Protection is not denial. It is only protection. In fact, when you feel and know that you are safe and protected, is there not freedom within that to resolve the form that you are faced with? This brings us back to the first paragraph, does it not?

If you feel that you need protection, set protection, for the intention of it will in fact protect you as you learn, as you explore, until you realize or understand or feel that you no longer need such protection.

That is all we have to say on this subject at present.

Suicide

A reader has asked me to write about suicide; this is for CW. 

When I approach a subject like this, I like to go into a quiet space inside myself and ask the question of my group of advisers or what people refer to as guides. I want to say that I don’t know whether these personalities are separate from myself or parts of myself  – I suspect they’re both, but doubt that it matters. Either way, I then write what I get using the conversation format. Sometimes I later re-write what I receive so that it’s in the form of an essay (my ideas, my form), and other times leave it as it comes and refer to it as channeling. 

In this case, I’ve left what I received in the form that it came to me because I’m too lazy to re-write it. 🙂 A

*

Me: Tell me about suicide.

Them: There are more than one aspects to this subject. Let us take one at a time.

There are those who choose to come into this incarnation with the plan, shall we say, of killing themselves, choosing the time and place once within the body, or before taking on the body. This is a creative exploration of their own, or in some cases an agreement made between many for the benefit of all. We will leave that as it is, for it should be self explanatory.

There are also those who come into this life with a plan, yet once they are in the physical they discover that it is much more difficult than they had realized from the point of view of the non-physical. Looking at physical life from the other side makes physical life look much simpler. Things look possible and often quite easy that, once in the body, prove to be so difficult as to cause some people to  kill their bodies.

In some cases this decision is not welcome, shall we say, by the Group Self, yet that is not to say that the person is judged as lacking or judged as evil or weak for having made the decision. It may be a disappointment only in having missed some exploration’s possibility should that personality found the endurance to continue. There is no judgment placed on the person, and many times it is recognized that the life was much more traumatic than imagined or planned, so that this spirit is in need of healing.

There are others who are, let us say, like lost spirits. If you go to a strange city and lose your way, wandering lost for many hours, is it a fault? Do you judge yourself evil? No. And neither are you judged so if one were to kill oneself under these circumstances. Losing one’s way, forgetting where one came from or how to return to where one came from is not a matter for condemnation, it is a matter for assistance and healing. It is true that in some instances the loss of remembrance causes … shall we say … disruption in the ranks. And the dis-remembrance is so acute that finding a way to reestablish communication with this spirit while it is still in a body is problematic or even impossible. Sometimes it takes quite an effort even to reach them once they are out of the body. It is never, however, a matter for condemnation nor judgment.

Let us describe this in another way in hopes of clarification.

The group self – however that is understood – is not a punishing body, nor is the vast All That Is. As we have stated and will emphasize, all is good. All experience is ultimately creative exploration and expansion. The group self is a supportive body, never anything but that. Whether the incarnated being/awareness forgets its origin or not, whether it takes its own life or not, that is still a creative act of free will, a valid choice of the being. The choice is respected at the level of the group or whole self (we use these interchangeably for this discussion), though the group may feel intervention or healing is necessary at the individual incarnate level once that portion of itself has left the body.

This presupposes a difference between the whole self and the individual self, and this we would agree is correct in a sense. The individual spirit may become enmeshed in the physical reality to the point of being without conscious awareness of who s/he really is, where s/he comes from. When this occurs, all sorts of complications might arise, one of which is suicide. This is another way of summarizing the same thing described above.

What is respected and accepted as a choice of free will from the viewpoint of the whole self does not presuppose an incarnated spirit or personality going “off track” so to speak, or setting out on a mission, only to abandon that mission by way of suicide. Keep this in mind and we will return to it.

There are those who are aware that were they to end their own life – we speak of incarnated personalities now – that they would simply be “sent back” to try it again. They sense that they might end up doing the difficult things all over again within different circumstances, and it would still be difficult in their eyes.

This is an awareness that the whole self or the group self feels committed to what it has set out to do, regardless of the reactions of this particular personality. The personality might be viewed for the sake of this discussion as a splinter of the self, not having full awareness of the whole, yet fully conscious in its own environment. Let us say in this case the whole self would accept the ending of the life, examine it, then perhaps take on a different body which would necessarily provide a different personality through which to experience the desired experience.

Either splinter, either of the two personalities, are still that same whole being. It is simply not the whole being’s consciousness within that one incarnated body’s awareness. One piece of lasagna from the pan is still a part of the whole, removed or not, carrying the personality and flavor and knowledge of the whole with it into the new existence as this one piece of lasagna, separate on a plate.

Me: roll my eyes – lasagna?!

The subject of suicide can be fraught with emotion and we would like to defuse some of that. Said another way, your hand is not all of you yet it is still your hand – it is you, it is simply not capable on its own of all that the whole body is capable of, is this not true? In this sense we will say that the personality of the incarnated being is simply not capable on its own of all that he whole being is capable of, yet it is wholly and completely of the particular whole self or group self.

We offer this example: Perhaps your hand shakes, and you cannot control this shaking with the conscious mind. Just as the hand shakes without direction from the mind, so the physical body and its limited awareness is capable of taking actions that are not fully informed by the whole self. Thereby, if the hand shakes without your conscious control, do you condemn your hand and cut it off? You do not. You live with it and perhaps attempt to heal it, to bring it back into the fold. The whole self also does not cut off the incarnated personality who is “lost” in some sense. The whole self does not abandon any part of itself.

As a whole, the concept that suicide is evil or wrong is a misconception, based upon the mountain of misconceptions that shape cultures as they are. That suicide if often considered to be a selfish act is nonsensical, for the one accusing the suicide of selfishness is buried in their own selfishness by that very judgment, are they not?

Any death can be viewed from many viewpoints, suicide included. It could as well be approached with celebration, or with healing ceremonies and attention, and perhaps these viewpoints would be more useful to those still incarnated, for as one judges another’s decisions as wrong or misguided, the fears of the judger are most often revealed, are they not?

That is all we have to say at this time.

Me: Thank you.

Galaxies

Why do galaxies spin at a uniform rate from the centers to the outside edges?

I received this question from a reader of Application of Impossible Things. It’s not the sort of question I usually get from readers – what the hell, I like to try new things.  I asked “my people” about it (whether those people are guides, or aspects of me – does it matter?). I’m not sure that they answered the question, but I’m not really qualified to judge since I don’t know much about the subject. I thought it might be fun to see what sort of feedback people have about what information I did receive. Feel free to comment below … 

Answer:

First we would say that what you perceive when perceiving a galaxy is a particular viewpoint. That viewpoint from within time/space gives a distorted view of the reality of what a galaxy is, for you have trained yourselves to see one aspect (or many aspects, but not enough) of it, while missing other aspects altogether. We remind you that it is said that when Spanish ships approached the shores of the new world, many of the natives did not see the ships. The ships were invisible not because they didn’t exist, but because in being outside the reasoned perceptions of the viewers, the accustomed trails of perception, the ships were edited out by the manager, the brain, the mind. The mind made them invisible by editing focus.

So too we would like to suggest that aspects of the galaxies, or of space, are edited out for the purposes of maintaining a coherent flow within the mind. Now we will invite you to step outside that sphere of the familiar into what is for you unknown territory.

The string of time that is inhabited currently by the human population could be said to include a certain plane of space. Were you to expand your concepts of time, concepts of space would also necessarily be understood to expand because they are actually not two concepts, they are one. This is not to say that time/space expand in ways that have been postulated, but that there must be a new paradigm to understand that which is questioned.

There is an additional energy to be identified, in one sense (while in another it is all one energy – we will remind you, then set that aside for the sake of this discussion so that we do not confuse the issue for now). The qualities of this unidentified energy have already been confined, in concept, by current science, within a band that does not allow for depth.

We see you hesitate, for depth is one of the three dimensions. You must now enter physics, which we understand you have little knowledge of.

Let us say that a plane has three dimensions, for nothing can ever be of no thickness. As soon as something has two dimensions in space, it has three. That is how we describe how you currently view time/space.

Imagine now a plane with a MEASURABLE depth. Now you may liken that to the depth of physics.

Now imagine a plane with depth, width and breadth, and also inside out, and between inside out, and mirroring itself, and mirroring betweens, and on and on – infinite insides and outsides and betweens. From this viewpoint you will begin to see that you perceive what you think time/space is, but you see only the elephant’s tail. We will say that this might be the equivalent of quantum physics for the sake of this discussion (although it actually is not – they are not as deep as they appear to be. They probe, though, and draw closer to a new paradigm.)

So let us leap now. When you perceive only a fraction of that which truly exists, your viewpoint and conclusions will be incomplete. Does a galaxy spin at the same rate on the interior as it does at the edges? Yes, from your point of view it appears to do so. Does the pinwheel appear to be a solid object when it spins in the wind? Yes, although your memory tells you that this is not so. You have lost your memories of Full Time/Space, so you have lost the ability to see that from another viewpoint the galaxy does not appear to spin evenly in speed, inside to edge. It is a more complex movement containing not only the galaxy but much beyond and between.

Another way to think of it would be to say that everything else is spinning, and the galaxy is stationary.

Or imagine the whole of creation were spinning slowly, and one galaxy were the center of the spin. From the view of the whole of creation, that point, far smaller than the smallest particle, would not appear to be spinning at different rates, inside to out. It would be such an infinitely small difference from the inside to the edge, it would not be discernible at all.  (Physicists will not accept this, literal as they are. We invite them to think in terms of the questions being presented, or the idea of the model being presented, not the particular example.)

What if you perceive from between the two viewpoints, but you think that you perceive from one: the physical world? What if, as you currently read space, you are not looking at time as is currently understood, but time as it could be, as it was, as it might be?

What if your observation has changed it? We assure you that your observations, your expectations and thoughts surrounding the stars and planets and solar systems and galaxies are affecting the bodies in space. Please think this over and we’ll keep moving….

Say that you are looking at a galaxy from your viewpoint, seeing what you think is true: the insides and edges of the galaxy are moving at the same rate of speed through space. Your assumption is that space and time are fixed and universally measurable. What if, in fact, time/space contain bends and movements of their own? What if those bends and movements are both independent, and responding to the observer (be that observer a single consciousness or a collective consciousness)? What if time speeds up here, and slows there? What if space also bends, speeds and slows, having its own movements? Galaxies might then appear to be moving oddly within comparison to the rules you have found on earth, for the universe is not constant as assumed.

We offer this idea.

There are many energies that have not been identified. Or none. As we specified, all energy is, at source, one energy. Within the model of making distinctions between the properties of aspects of the single energy, say making a distinction between gravity and electricity and magnetics, then we can address your question. There are in fact aspects of the energy that have not been described and categorized. Depending upon how the distinctions are made, there may be a few or quite a few that could be said to have been, as yet, “undiscovered.” They have in fact been discovered and to some extent explored, although they are not recognized by scientific investigators.

Let us address Dark Matter, which the reader has proposed or introduced. Dark Matter is a nebulous concept that science has postulated. It is not yet described in a way that will clearly separate it from other energies (aspects) that are also available. Let us say that Dark Matter is the soup that could be more useful to science were it further split into carrots, beans, and potatoes. Or when the soup is made into a consommé, so that all ingredients are understood to be throughout the “energy” called Dark Matter.  One of these paths will be chosen within ten years or so, and followed to greater knowledge. It matters not which is chosen, for either will lead to the same understanding and conceptualization necessary to understand the perceived actions or movements of galaxies.

My conscious mind: Will dark matter explain the apparent aberrant behavior of the spinning of galaxies?

Let us say that in the course of investigating Dark Matter, the information needed to gain an understanding of the apparent movement of galaxies will be found.

My conscious mind: I don’t think you’ve answered the original question.

Are you sure?

My conscious mind: No.  😛
