On Channeling

In a discussion on another forum on some channeled material, I was asked what I mean by channelling and why I had issues with it. I thought it useful to share my response here. OK – the basics of what I’d call “channeling”. Essentially an astral being takes over a person to some degree. The person may be conscious but often is not. They use the person to communicate or write their message to other humans. Hence the human is a “channel” for their message. Part of spiritual progress is increasing the integration of mind, body and spirit. However, channeling … Continue Reading…

Healing the Past without Being the Past

When looking at healing modalities there’s an important distinction to be made between practices that help you become conscious of unresolved emotions and those that take you into them. Becoming conscious of them helps you see them and if you’re OK, allow and resolve them. They can wash over you in a brief wave and be done. It may trigger sensations of physical release too. This ends the burden or at least whacks off a big chunk. I’ve talked before how I facilitated that by culturing gratitude but there are many ways to open to how you feel, now. Practices … Continue Reading…

Divine Beings

A subject that comes up periodically is the distinction between types of subtle beings. I reviewed them recently here. Many people first experience the beings closer to their physical presence. Perhaps the dead, or nature elementals, or a guide or other related being. Broadly, these are all astral beings. You should apply the same principles to them as to anyone you meet in the physical world. Most will place self-interest at the top of their priorities. Divine beings like angels, archangels, gods, avatars and so forth are very distinct from astral beings. They never “channel”, in the sense of taking … Continue Reading…

Healing Everything – Part 3 of 3

< Part 2 – Prep – More Specific Issues Much of the above helps us improve the general tone of our lives but some knots or blocks are more pernicious. After our practice, we step back into the world and the old habits re-engage, reinforcing the momentum of the past. These are the sprouted seeds of karma. There are a variety of ways we store unresolved experiences. This is directly related to karma. Energetic sludge, knots, unskilled empath merge, spiritual addiction/bypassing, negative thought forms, frozen contractions, crusts, outmoded self-concepts, old substance abuse issues, energetic cords of attachment, psychic coercion, and … Continue Reading…

Empath Empowerment

As we’re in the energy age, it should be no surprise that there is a major rise in the presence of energy healing. You’ll now find all sorts of different energy modalities. Even a bit of it in formal medical settings. Energy is the flow that gives rise to the forms of our experience. Thus, being able to heal energetically can correct causal issues that effect both quality of life and spiritual progress. What that arena has tended to be missing is good energy reading skills or literacy. For example, it’s not uncommon for energy healers to be taught to … Continue Reading…

The Dominant Sense

One of the factors that influences how we experience our unfolding growth is our dominant sense. The distinctiveness of this will depend also on the degree of that dominance. We’re all something of a mix. And this doesn’t guarantee how you’ll experience awakening. But there will be that tendency to process it that way. And the kind of teachers and approach you’ll favour. I can recall someone describing one of the NLP models on this subject. If we’re visual, we look up when thinking. If it’s audio to the side, if touch we look down. You’ll also note word choice … Continue Reading…

Bruce Lipton and Tom Campbell

This summer, MBT Events toured physicist Tom Campbell around the west coast to speak with other cutting edge thinkers and recorded the conversations. In this chat, Dr. Campbell met with epigenetic biologist Bruce Lipton. It was the first time they’d met. Tom talks a little about set theory and observes that many of the problems of modern science are due to thinking inside a subset. If we recognize consciousness as the superset, then we can derive all subjective experience as well as all physics as subsets of consciousness. As well as addressing many issues, it also makes things like paranormal … Continue Reading…

Nancy Shipley Rubin

Nancy Shipley Rubin is a psychic intuitive and counselor. Twice a year, she and her husband Errol come out of paradise in Hawaii to do a tour of the west coast, offering workshops and personal sessions. She also has an annual retreat. She’s been coming here for over 25 years and some good friends have been going to their workshops for much of that time. I’ve been to several. Her primary focus is on teaching us to work more consciously with our energy system. How to open, clear and protect ourselves. She indicates most spiritual aspirants these days are clearing … Continue Reading…

108 Reasons to Seek Enlightenment

For fun, I thought I’d see if I could find 108 good reasons to want to be enlightened. It turned out to be easy. These are essentially side effects of purification and development so are best not pursued directly. But if we follow the Vedic advice to go Highest First, we will gain all the benefits along the way. 1 – Peace – you are peace itself and radiate it to others 2 – Bliss – you live profound happiness for no reason, even in sleep 3 – Totally – liberation is total, of the present, past, and future 4 … Continue Reading…

We’re Entangled

I’ve finally had a chance to begin reading Dr. Dean Radin’s book Entangled Minds. He’s a long-term scientific researcher of psi (psychic ability) now with the Institute of Noetic Sciences. His history includes Bell Labs, SRI, Princeton and a classified program with the US government. You may remember him from the What the Bleep film. The book is an interesting exploration of the research, history and controversy of the field along with a proposal that psi can begin to be explained with quantum mechanics. He also has a good sense of humor. Because psychic abilities tend to show up during … Continue Reading…

Passing Contact

A week ago, a long distance friend of mine named Dan died. While still a young man, he had a profound spiritual connection and was one of only a few I know who was as “In2Deep” discussion as I. I’ve posted a few things he wrote in Conversations with Dan. For most people, after death they spend a few days winding down, then move onto a new “assignment”, either as a guide or worker of some sort or in a new incarnation. Their connections with the old disengage and fade. After awakening, this pathway shifts. In Dan’s case, he’s sticking … Continue Reading…

Light Help

Recently, I met a woman named Karen Forrest. She was a military psych nurse for 17 years, so quite grounded. But these days, she offers counseling by “talking to angels and dead people.” She still laughs about the unexpected change in her life. She has 2 regional best selling books offering stories about angels, leading to her talk at a writers group I attend – using angels to get your book published. The basics are applicable to just about anything though. I’ve spoken here before about the benefits of gratitude in your life. Aside from culturing a more positive approach … Continue Reading…
