FOLLOWING OUR INDIVIDUAL ROAD MAP TO ASCENSION

NOTE BY NANCY:  Little did we know in 2011 just how long it would take to achieve the critical level of mass awakening that would enable us to make the required evolutionary leap in our ascension process.  Finally, in Fall 2014, we are beginning to awaken in great numbers.  I am reposting this article as it seems even more relevant to today’s life within the very intense energies of Light and Love now flooding our planet.

FOLLOWING OUR INDIVIDUAL ROAD MAP TO ASCENSION

Nancy B. Detweiler, M.Ed., M.Div.

       Life is eternal for the Soul—no beginning, no ending.  Many Souls choose to explore the various dimensions of life, rather than remain in the heavenly realms.  Those of us presently residing on Earth made that choice.  During our explorations, we made mistakes that require correction—karma that necessitates transmuting into positive energy.  In order for us to achieve ascension into the higher dimensions, these mistakes must be resolved on Earth plane.

As a result, when preparing for another physical incarnation, we and our spiritual mentors construct a Road Map to guide our Soul along its chosen path.  This Road Map also involves contracting with additional Souls to play particular roles in the forthcoming incarnation.  These Soul contracts are created to ensure that we accomplish the goals upon which we are basing our future physical plane life.

The first step in creating this Road Map is determining our goals regarding the lessons we want to learn, how we desire to transmute old mistakes/karma, and our ultimate mission.  Every Road Map is created for success—if we allow that success to unfold within our lives.  We are not permitted to take on more challenges than we can successfully overcome—if we choose to do so.  However, once we incarnate and find the challenges we chose for ourselves too difficult, we are always free to wait until the next incarnation or the next.  Life is eternal and we are free to take as long as we choose incarnating on the plane of duality.

The second step is selecting our future parents based on:  their willingness to play that parental role and their capacity to provide the type of early childhood experiences our Soul requires in order to learn our lessons, transmute our karma, and prepare for our Soul’s mission.  Many of us choose difficult childhoods as one means of accomplishing our ultimate Soul goal.  We contract with those future parents to play the needed roles.  Most often the roles the parents agree to play are also connected to their own Road Maps and to the goals they plan to achieve.  Life is an intimately woven tapestry of many colors.

The third step is choosing and contracting with the meaningful others with whom we will share some stage of our incarnation.  These persons will play the role of grandparent,   sibling, spouse, teacher/mentor, close friend, professional partner, and our own children.  The selected persons are located at the most beneficial points on our Road Map.  For example:  the spouse with whom we have contracted will appear in our lives at the appropriate time for us to gain the most benefit from the reunion.  (Remember our Soul knew he/she was coming.)

Here, we must recognize that the most benefit does not necessarily feel good.  Instead, that spouse is appearing at the appropriate time in order to fulfill the contract we created before incarnation.  At the point of meeting in the physical, we have the opportunity to decide whether or not our Souls continue to need the previously contracted experiences … we may have already matured past requiring the circumstances involved … we always have the freewill choice to break the contract.

This freewill choice to break the contract is available regarding all facets of our Road Map to Ascension.  For example:  Our Soul may incarnate via the selected parents only to realize that the desired environment does not exist.  The Soul has approximately two years from birth onto the physical plane to determine whether to stay or to leave.  The decision to leave is the basis for many early childhood so-called deaths.  That Soul may choose the same parents at a later stage and find the environment ripe for Soul growth.

The important factor to remember is that our Soul chooses physical incarnation for specific Soul growth purposes.  We did not incarnate on a whim … we are not accidents … we are not robots that require the same treatment for all.  Instead, this incarnation is filled with Soul meaning … our Soul rejoices when we successfully overcome a challenge … our Soul celebrates when we meet and recognize a major destination point on our Road Map.  On the other hand, our Soul cares little about the amount of money we earn or how high on the social ladder we climb.  Success is achieving Soul growth.

Most Souls utilize, often subconsciously, the first 28-30 years of incarnation to resolve many of the challenges on their Road Map.  Then, around this 1st Saturn Return stage of life, our Road Map indicates a time to pause and reflect upon how we choose to live out the remainder of this incarnation.  This pause is usually highlighted on our Road Map by sudden changes, such as the desire to move, to change vocations, or the death of a loved one.  It can be a time of restlessness … a time of wanting to sweep the decks clean and start over.  For this reason, many who marry young divorce around the ages of 28 to 30 yrs.  Many decide the friends with whom they have heretofore associated are not compatible with the next stage on their Road Map.  It is a growth stage intended to result in significant change …a stage for personal evaluation in light of our Soul’s ultimate goal.

After the 1st Saturn Return years, many follow their Road Map in a much more conscious manner.  We recognize that we desire our lives to count as making a difference in the world … that we are to be the Pilot of our lives, rather than allowing our selves to be tossed to and fro by those around us and by the world of events.  We seek self-empowerment, self-love, self-fulfillment.

*****************

Our planet is now quickly changing … we as a planet of people have the unprecedented opportunity to ascend—while in our physical bodies—to a higher dimension of consciousness.  This opportunity comes as Planet Earth prepares to ascend—to shed its former title of Prison Planet and become an Ascended Planet.  We, who are incarnated on Planet Earth may move forward with our Mother Earth if we so choose.  We, who have been imprisoned within the illusion of the plane of duality, may now ascend into the full consciousness that exists on the 5th dimension.  Whereas now, we Earth humans use roughly 10% of our brain power, we may then ascend into usage of our full consciousness.

Evolving into full consciousness entails many new experiences.  The old, familiar world no longer works; it is collapsing and will be forgotten.  The challenges that have heretofore appeared to some as insurmountable will simply melt away.  In their place, a new Earth will emerge.  A new way of life will surprise us!

At the moment, we walk between two worlds.  Following our Road Map requires increased attentive focus on our intuitive insights.  If we listen to our Soul’s guidance, rather than to the ways of the collapsing world, we find walking our Road Map surprising, exciting, and constantly enlarging our conscious awareness.  We are becoming aware of other dimensions and how our Road Map interfaces with those higher planes of consciousness.  This newly emerging world requires some adjustment.

Whereas, heretofore, the majority of our relationships have involved varying degrees of karma, we are now meeting persons who belong to our Soul family.  These relationships feel pure, easy, and compatible.  Deep unconditional love characterizes Soul family.  The 5th dimension is not hung up on love = sex of one form or another, as we Earth humans are.  All is unconditional love on the 5th dimension.  As we meet our Soul family, we have to adjust to the love that is present regardless of the age or gender of that Soul family member.

Another adjustment required is learning to pay attention to synchronic symbols, persons, messages, gifts—however the message is relayed to us by Spirit.  Earth humans listen to what we can hear with our ears and see with our physical eyes.  We tend to ignore messages from our Soul … messages that are directing us according to our Road Map.  For example:  As a teenager, I knew intuitively that I was to attend college.  I heard with my physical ears when my father told me there was no money for college.  I saw with my physical eyes that the way to attend college was to be accepted and pay the tuition.  I heard my Soul instructing me to go to college.  Had I listened to the sounds and sights of the physical plane, I would not have attended college.  But, I chose to listen to the intuitive messages from my Soul.  I wrote the college of my choice and explained that I had no money, but wanted to attend college on faith.  I was accepted.  Now for the money.

My minister knew of my desire.  When a friend of his told him he wanted to send a student to college—all expenses paid—my minister gave him my name.  This dear man paid for my freshman year.  He not only paid my expenses, but would periodically send me extra money with a note that I might like to buy a gift for a friend.  His generosity illustrates well how Divine Order unfolds in our lives when we listen to our Soul, rather than to the world.  His sudden death also reminds us that our Road Map may not be dependent upon a single source to assist us in  achieving our Soul’s goals.  We must be flexible and not easily discouraged.

Another adjustment involves learning to stand alone, as an empowered individual.  Our 3rd dimensional world teaches us to think and act in accordance with tribal folkways, beliefs, and acceptable behavior:  this is the way I am suppose to believe; this is the way I am suppose to act.  Failure to follow tribal beliefs and laws can mean excommunication.  Tribal can mean any group with which we choose to associate.

When we begin to walk between two worlds, we can feel incongruent within the familiar 3rd dimensional world.  We begin to feel energies that the tribe does not feel or, at least, will not admit feeling.  We may be tagged as “losing it,” “touched,” or as “no longer credible professionally.”  The chains holding us within the status quo are heavy … many dare not attempt to step outside the tribal box.  Yet, the more the cosmic energies propel us toward ascension, the harder it is to pretend to be content in the tribal box.  As one friend recently phrased it:  We have been touched by Mother Father God Consciousness.  Ascension requires that we leave behind all that would hold us back.  Our Road Map was planned with this in mind.

Following our Road Map will alert us to the alternatives.  In 2011, it is probable that we have never dreamed of some of our alternatives because they do not presently exist in our visible world.  We tend to forget that our Soul, in conjunction with our spiritual mentors, planned for an entire incarnation.  This can mean that following our Road Map entails making one or more abrupt 90 degree turns … it can mean that we take action with one goal in mind and end up pursuing a very different one.

Life in 2011 is filled to overflowing with change.  We are evolving into an ascended being … we are creating a new Earth and moving forward within our Milky Way Galaxy.  The one facet of life on which we can absolutely depend is that our willingness to follow our individual Road Map to ascension will attract all that we need in order to do so.  Our task is to be alert … follow our intuitive guidance regardless of how incongruent it appears with physical plane reality … and to remember that we are evolving into the All Good.  Our Road Map does not mislead us … we simply must trust as we make our way around the curves.

Our Souls planned our individual Road Map to ensure our freewill opportunity to achieve ascension!  Godspeed to all!

DAVID WILCOCK REQUESTS OUR PRAYER ASSISTANCE FOR THE NEW MADRID FAULTLINE.

I post this article, audio by David Wilcock,, and audio of  David’s interview of Ben Fulford because it offers a tremendous opportunity for LIGHT WORKERS to use our prayer power to heal the New Madrid fault line running beneath the Mississippi River and thereby prevent an earthquake that is predicted.  HAARP technology is predicted to be the cause of this earthquake.

As we move toward ascension, a major lesson we are to learn is that we are One with God … that All power dwells within each of us as manifestations of God upon Earth.  All negativity is temporary and part of the Illusion in which we have lived on Earth and we, as child gods, possess the power to heal Mother Earth.  We possess the capacity to render harmless any technology used for negative, harmful purposes.

I invite you to listen to the two audios by David and respond with your God-given power to defeat darkness with Light!  You may do so at the below listed URL.  David’s introductory article is first … as you scroll down the article, you’ll come to a paragraph entitled NOW FOR THE MJ3s and you’ll see the two audios.

THE INTERFACING OF DIMENSIONS AS WE PROCEED TOWARD ASCENSION

The Interfacing of Dimensions As We Proceed Toward Ascension

Nancy B. Detweiler, M.Ed., M.Div.

       The majority of Earth humans approach the 2011-2012 ascension process with a concept of life and relationships that characterizes our daily lives on the 3rd dimension.  We orient our lives around societal laws and religions created by fallible human beings.  Although Earth humans have received teachings from Ascended Masters, we very quickly misconstrued them to a point of non-recognition. We most often understand life through the 3rd dimensional physical senses—we believe what we can see, touch, hear, smell, taste, or intellectually perceive.  This severely restricts our comprehension of life, life’s meaning, and our true selves.

The 3rd dimension is the plane of duality—the plane on which we learn life’s lessons by experiencing both good and evil, light and darkness.  It is the plane of illusions … a temporary plane on which we live through the karma of our own making.

Heretofore, Planet Earth’s 3rd dimension has served as our schoolhouse; it has granted us the opportunity to balance the negative karma we have incurred during our numerous lives of residing on this plane of duality.

While living on the 3rd dimension, we have forgotten who we truly are and that the only way to comprehend Truth is through the Higher or Intuitive Mind.  The Intuitive Mind is our gateway to the higher dimensions.

***************

Through the years, many Earth residents have awakened to the 4th dimension—the emotional plane.  Metaphysicians call the 4th dimension the astral plane; the Catholic Church refers to this 4th dimension as purgatory.  At this point in Earth time, most souls depart the physical body and return to the astral plane level with which their degree of spiritual maturity finds resonance.

Astral plane levels range from the very negative hellish regions to the very beautiful.  The one characteristic that relates to all levels of the astral plane is that purification is the goal.  Souls reside on the astral plane until there is no negativity remaining in their auric field.  This means that Earth humans can contact and be contacted by souls living on the astral plane.  In fact, this soul contact is the means by which we have gained knowledge of the astral plane.

We have only to search the internet to find examples of Earth humans’ communication with souls on the astral plane through near death experiences, channeling, séances, and a variety of divination techniques.  Many of our loved ones and spirit guides reside on the upper levels of the astral plane, where negativity has been largely transmuted.  A part of the purification process while on the astral plane is service to others.

For example:  A group of former physical plane doctors may choose to serve from the astral plane by assisting members of a meditative healing group residing on the 3rd dimension.  This joint effort is an interfacing of the 3rd and 4th dimensions.  Communication is telepathic.  Healing techniques vary from psychic surgery – to – members holding the light while the astral plane doctors work on the patient’s etheric body – to energetic healing that often involves a physical plane modality in combination with the guidance of the doctors.

Another type of interfacing with the 4th dimension can involve assisting earthbound souls to move toward the light.  The TV show “Ghost Whisperer” illustrates this well.

A very comforting, but often ignored or ridiculed, means of interfacing with the 4th dimension is the capacity to telepathically communicate with our loved ones who have recently shed the physical body.  Especially while in grieving, we are vulnerable and open.  This openness can result in feeling the presence of our loved ones, receiving telepathic messages, and clairvoyant sightings.

Young children may have what our 3rd dimensional world calls an imaginary playmate.  In Truth, this is simply another example of dimensional interfacing—one child is in physical incarnation, the other remains on the astral plane, but within close proximity.  Deep love/friendship for each other would be the connecting force.  Soul contracts may also involve the reunion of these playmates at some point in the present incarnation.

For the most part, our 3rd dimensional society treats the above examples with a mixture of disbelief, laughter, bullying, and outright accusations of insanity.  Peer pressure holds us in line with a culture that functions on the basis of humanity not knowing its true identity, inner power, or innate skills.

As a result of our lack of knowledge, the interfacing of 3rd and 4th dimensions may involve negative, even frightening contact between souls that are lost in a maze of negativity and ignorance of their true identities.  The 3rd dimension entertainment media thrives on presenting this lower type contact with the 4th dimension.  For whatever reason, many persons enjoy being frightened via horror movies.  They seem to convince themselves that the stories are not real and cannot be real.  At the very least, having this negative, often extremely violent, energy penetrate our auric fields is of no benefit and can be harmful.  The only reason anyone would choose to deliberately allow this lower energy entrance into the auric field would be lack of knowledge that we are individual temples of God, far greater than we know.

***************

Another facet of this interfacing with the 4th dimension is the attunement to spiritual guides residing on the upper levels of the astral plane.  Many who meditate to achieve this attunement tend to do so through the solar plexus chakra, located near the navel.  It is easy to make contact with the astral plane when meditating through the solar plexus.  Much good exists on the upper levels of the astral plane and many souls residing there desire to serve humanity.  Although this contact with service-to-others souls can be very helpful, it is not the ultimate toward which we need to aim.

The astral plane can also be a plane of illusions; various degrees of negativity are present.  Thus the degree of helpfulness found there will depend upon the spiritual maturity of each soul.  Earth humans need to demand that only those who work in the Light make contact with them.  Otherwise, many may be fooled into thinking a “spirit guide” is spiritually capable of serving in that capacity, when the reverse may be true.

Ego plays a huge role here.  Our ego thrives on receiving attention, respect, even honor for being one who is capable of attuning to other dimensions of reality.  The ego will trip us every time.  It sets us up for being used by lower entities who will lie to us and to the ones we may very sincerely desire to help.

Holistic growth—physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual—is required in order to raise our consciousness to the 5th dimension and above.  We cannot skip stages in spiritual growth.  We have to do the self-disciplined work … we have to purify … we have to stand up and walk as one who is healed by Spirit … we have to learn who we truly are.  Holistic growth allows us to communicate telepathically with the 5th dimension and to channel through the crown chakra into our heart’s sanctuary.  We then speak from the heart with love.

****************

Interfacing 3rd with 4th dimension has become fairly commonplace within the last century.  Many have adjusted to the truth of life after death, reincarnation as a means to balance our negative karma, and the possibility of telepathic communication with those residing on the astral plane.

It is as the 5th dimension begins to interface with our present stance as spirit beings, preparing to ascend en masse with Mother Earth, that the unanswered questions appear.  2011 – 2012 and beyond present us with a growth process for which we have no precedent.

All of us residing on Earth, and planets throughout the cosmos, descended from the heart of Creator God into individualized form.  We all have experienced the realms of unspeakable love and beauty—that realm is our true home.  Throughout eons of time, some of us chose involution into slower vibrations.  We wanted to experiment … to experience life in a variety of settings and on numerous planets.  Many continued the involutionary process until we reached the density of the 3rd dimension.  It is important to keep in mind that our souls descended to this level by freewill choice.  We did not originate here.  However, we did create negative karma that must be balanced on either the 3rd or 4th dimensions in order to ascend to the higher realms.

Humanity is now engaged in the process of evolving upward … in climbing Jacob’s ladder to the higher dimensions from which we descended.  As we climb the ladder upward, we gradually become attuned to the 4th dimension, then the 5th dimension.  As we do so, we encounter the necessity to live within two worlds.

This living within two worlds (or two dimensions) is the part for which we have no precedence.  Heretofore, those souls who chose to involute into the 3rd dimension have lived on that plane until they left the physical body for the 4th dimension through a process we call death.  There was very little simultaneous conscious awareness of the two dimensions.  For those aware of both dimensions, it was not that hard to adjust to the differences because both contain the very loving and the very lost souls.

As we gain attunement to the 5th dimension while residing physically on the 3rd, the differences are staggering and the adjustment much more challenging.  No negativity can exist on the 5th dimension, while negativity is rampant on the 3rd.  What we consider love on the 3rd dimension is tainted with distortions:  selfish love, possessive love, needy love, sexual love, co-dependent love … on and on.  What we call unconditional love on the 3rd dimension is better defined as acceptance of the loved one and his/her foibles, with no attempt to change.

On the 5th dimension and above, love is unconditional.  5th dimension re-introduces us to life characterized by pure love.  Who we are as unique expressions of God energy is totally accepted, appreciated, and encouraged.  Competition is non-existent; there are no losers.

A recent meditative vision opened my awareness to life on the 5th dimension with a depth that I am still attempting to fathom.  As you can read in my article entitled “A Twin Flame Story,” my Twin Flame and I have worked together during my present incarnation for the past fifteen years.  As I explain in the article, he chose to incarnate on Earth very few times, while I have done so numerous times.  Our home base for this stage of our evolution is the planet Venus, a 5th dimensional planet.   I was somewhat consciously familiar with life on Venus just by being associated with my Twin Flame.  Nevertheless, this meditative vision left me without words to adequately describe it.

In this vision, I was standing on a hill amidst indescribably beautiful iridescent colors that seem to float in the air.  I looked down to see a little girl … I was holding her hand.  We both saw a male figure appear at the bottom of the hill and recognized him.  Hand in hand, we gleefully ran down the hill and into the arms of Uriel (my Twin Flame, not the Archangel Uriel).  In that moment I knew that we were a family unit.  The love energy enfolding us was that of ecstasy with no prickly buts about it.  There was absolutely no fear of this love ever fading or disappearing.  This love was eternal and we knew it.  Uriel and I gazed upon our little girl and rejoiced.  Father, mother, and child … a cosmic triangle.

A cosmic triangle … all three sides of a triangle are equal.  On the 5th dimension, children are honored and given every opportunity to unfold into a lovely, unique flower without scars.

One way in which we are presently witnessing the interfacing of 3rd dimension with 5th dimension is through the extraordinary children coming to us.  We call them star children, indigo children, crystal children … they are coming to assist Earth humans to ascend to the 5th dimension.  They arrive with the knowledge of how to live in two worlds.  For us, the task can be more challenging.

Once we have tasted the pure, unconditional love of the 5th dimension, life on the 3rd dimension appears colorless.  Nothing here can compare.  Still, we must carry on with our 3rd dimensional responsibilities.

While residing on 3rd dimension, the majority of our relationships are determined by karma and the soul’s contract.  We are playing roles for each other that enable us to balance karma and to provide a learning environment.  For this reason, most relationships are challenging in one way or another.  Attuned only to the 3rd dimension, we accept these challenges as facts of life and hopefully learn to work positively with them.

In 2011, it is especially important to heal all types of relationships to the best of our ability.  We cannot move forward carrying residual karma with us.  Of course, we cannot force others to seek healing.  We must do our part and release the situation.  In this way, we cleanse our own energy field.  As we do so, we will attract members of our soul family with whom we can joyfully move forward to the 5th dimension.

As soul families attract each other, a major question arises regarding the meeting of our Twin Flame while we are married.  I speak to this briefly in my article “A Twin Flame Story.”  Since writing that article, a married friend met her Twin Flame in a dream.  He resides on the 5th dimension.  She reports the experience of such intense unconditional love and total acceptance of who she is has transformed her 3rd dimensional marriage.  Now she lives within the energy of her Twin Flame’s total, loving acceptance.  She has released the energetic chains she had wrapped around her husband and he is free.  He is a different person—much happier and more thoughtful of her.  She, too, is happier.  Their marriage continues.

Twin Flames are two parts of the same soul.  Even though we may spend few physical incarnations together, there is a subconscious yearning for our other half.  This subconscious yearning is often converted into energetic chains which we tie around our partner.  We expect our partner to fulfill a yearning that can only be filled by our Twin Flame.  The result is a love with all types of strings attached.

How will we cope with the interfacing of 5th dimension with our 3rd dimensional lives and relationships?  I know intuitively that I was given the vision of Uriel, our child, and me so that I would raise this question in my writings.  This child is the soul of a close friend of mine.  So now I not only know the joy of working with my Twin Flame, but also having a friend with whom I have shared a 5th dimensional family unit.  This is the type of friends we will increasingly meet as we move into 2012 and ascension to the 5th dimension.

We are moving beyond karmic relationships.  If you are married or in a committed partnership, both you and your partner have a Twin Flame.  As we meet our soul family, it is important to remember that the goal is not to create additional karma by the manner in which we handle the interfacing of karmic 3rd dimensional relationships with our 5th dimensional ones.  All persons possess a soul family.  It will be up to each of us to lovingly move forward into reunion with our Twin Flame and soul family.

The reward is an indescribable love that stimulates us to be all that we can be.  As one Twin Flame grows in spiritual maturity, the other Twin Flame is positively impacted.  I cannot imagine willfully choosing any action that would adversely affect my Twin Flame.

Reunion with Twin Flames is a part of the ascension process.  At this point, the majority of Twin Flames reside on different dimensions and planets.  The full consciousness that will be ours in the very near future will bring Twin Flames and soul families together in ways that are loving and create pain for no one.  Full consciousness and the 5th dimension are beyond pain.

Our future is very bright as we climb Jacob’s ladder from 3rd … to 4th … then 5th dimension!

CREATING A 5TH DIMENSIONAL SOCIETY

CREATING A 5TH DIMENSIONAL SOCIETY

Nancy B. Detweiler

The following information is not limited to citizens of the United States. All nations are to be transformed. I speak of the U.S., in particular, because I reside there. In Truth, Lightworkers are Citizens of Planet Earth. We work for the planet by serving at home and aboard. Citizens of nations, other than the U.S., can tailor the ideas presented here to the needs of their particular country.

****************************

Creating a 5th dimensional society will require that all Lightworkers be involved as citizens of a nation. Our task is to build a galactic type planetary society that resonates with the 5th dimensional plane of consciousness. We will accomplish this goal with the support and guidance of our galactic family. Participating in the transformation of all Earth nations is a major means by which we perform the loving service to others that qualifies us, as individuals, to achieve our own ascension.

Knowledge of the basic characteristics of a galactic society provides us guidelines for the renovation and lifting up of planet Earth. A few of the basic characteristics are listed below.

1. All persons are members of a loving community called a “podlet.” A podlet is made up of approximately 64 people usually built around a common life purpose.

2. Parents share the responsibility of raising children. “The goal of child rearing is to foster high self-esteem, personal sovereignty, and mutually shared love and joy in all individuals.”

3. Within the galactic community, Spirit is held in awe. Early childhood education recognizes the presence of Spirit within every child.

4. The individual is nurtured and empowered by society; thereby enhancing the overall social order.

5. “Government is perceived as the fulfillment of divine service. Since every member of the society is sovereign, government’s purpose is simply to mirror the divine will of the Spiritual Hierarchy and to assist each clan [containing many podlets] in successfully completing its most sacred goals.”

6. “The highest form of the observance of God’s Will is divine service. Consequently, galactic society is focused on service, freely offered.”

7. “Each lifetime is perceived to contain a divine purpose.”

8. “The sovereignty of the individual … transcends any perceived rights and refers instead to the individual’s liberty to grow in Spirit according to God’s wishes.”

“Galactic society is constantly reinventing itself.”

(The above information on the galactic society is taken from Sheldan Nidle’s book entitled Your First Contact.)

The Galactic Federation of Light and the Ascended Masters are presently with us. We may communicate with them telepathically at any time. Even if we feel we are not yet telepathic, we can ask for their guidance and assistance. They hear us and respond. We may experience their response as an idea that pops into our minds … a sudden urge to perform a specific action … a book falling off the shelf in front of us. There are myriad ways for them to answer our requests. Just be alert, open, and willing to follow through with the idea presented.

Earth humans have a lot of work to perform—in conjunction with the Galactic Federation of Light and the Ascended Masters—in order to create a galactic culture on this planet. We chose to incarnate, during this transitional period, in order to assist in this momentous endeavor. We are the privileged ones! We are here to witness events that have never—in this solar system’s history—taken place on Earth. We are present because we were awarded this unheard of opportunity to move forward in our spiritual evolution. Let us give thanks … roll up our sleeves … and get busy!

We cannot create a galactic society by using 3rd dimensional techniques that are based on greed, competition, separation, or categories of various kinds created to pit us against each other rather than bring us together in cooperative efforts. We must lay down our prejudices, cease clinging to our old belief systems, and overcome our propensity to resist change. In other words, we must affirm: “I choose to walk on the pathway to ascension. I release all known obstacles to my successfully treading this path and henceforth intend to work within the energies of love for all persons.”

We cannot create a galactic society with our present level of education regarding every facet of our lives. Living on 3rd dimension means we have lived within illusion. Life is not what we think it is. Our planet is not what we think it is. The cosmos in which we live is not what we think it is. Human beings are not what most think they are. In order to create a galactic society, we must be willing to admit our lack of education, our lack of knowledge, and most of all, our lack of wisdom is how to create a culture that allows every individual to blossom into all that we are.

Thus, the prerequisite for creating a galactic society is that we lift our consciousness from 3rd to 5th dimension. As Einstein said, “No problem can be solved at the level at which it exists.” Instead, we must tap into our Higher Mind, intuitive powers, and creative capacity.

We must covenant with one another, the Galactic Federation of Light, and the Ascended Masters, to be willing, diligent students of the wisdom that has been hidden from Earth humans for eons of time. We must re-write many books; re-organize our governmental systems; crack open our frozen religious doctrines and enable them to be permeated with Universal Truth; re-create our educational systems to include a focus on the mind, body, and spirit of every child; and develop peaceful, loving ways to live together as a planetary family committed to fulfilling God’s divine plan on Earth.

America has a unique destiny that is vastly different from the country we know today. As the 3rd dimensional America crumbles, the divine plan for this nation is simultaneously unfolding.

REINCARNATION IN THE BIBLE – PART 1

PART I – HAVE I LIVED BEFORE?

EXCERPTS FROM MY BOOK, A NEW AGE CHRISTIAN:

MY SPIRITUAL JOURNEY

Nancy B. Detweiler, M.Ed., M.Div.

Often first impressions and initial experiences upon meeting an individual are based in past life memories.  We can choose how we want to respond to these initial reactions.  An instant dislike of the person can indicate a soul memory that needs to be resolved.  The two of you may have come together—according to perfect divine timing—to heal a former relationship.  On the other hand, an immediate gut-level feeling, like “I don’t trust this person,” may be your soul’s warning to “be watchful as you deal with him.”  It is up to you to discern the difference, perhaps by simply withholding judgment until the two of you are better acquainted.

Two excellent introductory books are the story of Edgar Cayce’s life, There Is A River and Gina Cerminara’s book entitled Many Mansions.  Cayce’s carefully documented clairvoyant readings number in the thousands.  They are housed in the library of the Association for Research and Enlightenment in Virginia Beach, Virginia.  After twenty-two years of giving readings for medical diagnosis, Cayce surprises himself by tapping into a past life of his subject.46 From then on the readings are filled with the accounts of past life influences upon the medical and life conditions of his subjects.

As depicted in the Cayce readings, reincarnation is a means by which humanity evolves spiritually.  The Bible teaches us, in the allegorical story of Adam and Eve, that humanity chose to turn away from God.47 In doing so, we began our descent into materiality and corruption.  Soon we forgot our true identities as children of God, created in the image and likeness of God.  The Christian narrative introduces the man Jesus as the Saviour, the one who can show us the way out of our spiritual darkness into the divine light of God.  In his Sermon on the Mount, Jesus commands us, “Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.”48 In an effort to fulfill this commandment, the individual soul repeatedly incarnates into a physical body.  In the spiritual gospel of John, Jesus explains, “The one who believes in me will also do the works that I do and, in fact, will do greater works than these, because I am going to the Father.49 No one need point out to us that we, at this stage in our spiritual evolution, are unable to perform the works of Jesus.

Reincarnation is the means by which the soul evolves into the perfected state and acquires the knowledge of universal law necessary to “do the works” Jesus does.  Reincarnation is God’s grace manifesting in our lives. God’s grace giving us a second chance throughout eternity. Eternal life is just that: eternal, everlasting, without beginning or ending.  Our souls move back and forth between the world of spirit and the world of physical matter.  Once we evolve past the need to incarnate into physical bodies, we continue our spiritual evolution on higher dimensions of existence.

According to the Cayce readings, our physical body, emotions, and mental attitudes often reflect past life thought and behavioral patterns.  The universal law of cause and effect rules all of life, including humanity’s.  The apostle Paul explains this law:  “Do not be deceived; God is not mocked, for you reap whatever you sow. If you sow to your own flesh, you will reap corruption from the flesh; but if you sow to the Spirit, you will reap eternal life from the Spirit.”50 What we sow in the present life will be what we reap in the following incarnations.  For example:  My friend and I allowed unforgiven anger to be sown in our former life’s relationship.  When we meet in this present life, we immediately tap into the residual emotions from the previous life; we reap the harvest of anger we sowed.  This “reaping” need not be a permanent condition.  The grace of forgiveness is always available.  My friend and I can, through our freewill choice to do so, transform the initial anger into resumption of a lasting friendship.

Cayce’s readings are filled with examples of reaping what has been sown in previous lives.  An individual suffering from severe asthma is told, “You cannot press the life out of others without seeming at times to have it pressed out of oneself.”  A deaf person hears this admonition:  “Then do not close your ears again to those who plead for aid.”  This subject was a nobleman at the time of the French Revolution.51 The universal law of cause and effect can manifest itself in any number of ways.

The word karma is closely associated with the concept of reincarnation.  Karma is what we have sown and are now reaping. As long as we incarnate on Earth, each of us is both sowing and reaping karma.  Karma is a neutral word.  Our behavioral choices determine whether we reap positive or negative karma.  At this stage in human spiritual evolution, the majority of us are reaping both negative and positive.  A word of caution is needed.  We cannot outwardly observe the life conditions of another person and think we know what they are reaping.

While still in spirit, our souls prepare for the next physical incarnation by determining the best way for us to learn the lessons set aside for the particular sojourn on Earth.  For example, a soul may choose to be born blind, not because it has been blind to the needs of others in a previous life, but in order to ensure the development of the intuitive self.  In this case, blindness is not the harvest of past negative behavior.  It is the freewill choice of a soul intent on advancing to a higher level of spiritual wisdom.  Jesus gives us excellent advice when he urges, “Do not judge, and you will not be judged.”52

As part of the preparation process, a soul chooses to incarnate into the family with whom it feels its purposes can best be met.  A soul desiring a profession in music may choose a family attuned to the benefits of a musical education.  Two or more souls may plan to assist each other in accomplishing their soul purposes.  One soul may incarnate as a mentally challenged child in order to facilitate the parents’ lesson in loving unselfishly.  Once more we see the need to withhold judgment.  The mentally challenged child is not reaping a negative effect.  Neither are the parents reaping the results of sinful behavior.  Instead, the child is participating in an act of selfless service.  The parents chose the lesson of unselfish love for the present incarnation; the child volunteered to tutor the parents.  In so doing, the child’s soul is also benefiting.  The list of possibilities or purposes behind physical incarnation is endless.  “Do not judge, and you will not be judged.”

Negative karma very often appears within the arena of close personal relationships.  The Cayce readings seem to infer that a soul’s indifference to human suffering in one lifetime will bring suffering to the individual in a future life.  One of his readings illustrates this fact. A father places his little girl in a Catholic home.  The baby was born premature and hydrocephalic.  His wife died a few days after giving birth.  Wanting to know his previous relationship with his daughter, the father requests a reading from Cayce.  He is told, “In the experience before this you could have helped and you didn’t.  You’d better help in the present.”53

“Why don’t we remember our past lives?” I wonder.

Actually we do.  The fact of reincarnation reveals itself throughout our everyday lives.  We simply must be open to seeing and accepting it.  The child prodigy, love at first sight, immediate antagonism, a compelling sexual attraction, the “I feel like I have known you all my life” sensation, déjà vu experiences, phobias, and seemingly unfounded fears—all can be signals of reincarnation.

Continuity of consciousness, while in the physical body, would be overwhelming for the majority of humanity.  As we are born into the physical plane, we mercifully forget much of what we know.  Our soul decides upon specific goals for the particular incarnation.  To have our minds filled to overflowing with memories of all past lives would be to defeat ourselves before we get started.

A light flashes on in my mind.

“Astrology speaks to the soul’s purpose. Why can it not be interpreted to reveal the lessons our soul would like for us to learn in the present incarnation? Can I see indications of past life memories now affecting the individual?”

My quest for spiritual understanding is becoming even more exhilarating.

The science of astrology is practiced on a variety of levels.  Mundane astrology speaks to the everyday affairs of humanity with little or no attention being paid to the deeper significance of our daily lives.  Most often mundane astrology is interpreted for the future in the form of predictions.

Esoteric astrology deals with the spiritual implications of the predominant thought and emotional patterns of an individual.  Esoteric astrology offers answers to many of our “why?” questions in terms of the spiritual growth needing to take place during this incarnation.  Our role in the cosmic plan can be seen through esoteric astrology.

The Wise Men, depicted in the second chapter of the gospel of Matthew, are cosmic astrologers.  Cosmic astrology is a reading of the heavens in order to predict major cosmic events.  We can see examples of cosmic astrology in the Bible.  The birth of Jesus is one such event.  “In the time of King Herod, after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea, wise men from the East came to Jerusalem, asking, ‘Where is the child who has been born king of the Jews?  For we observed his star at its rising, and have come to pay him homage.”54 Near the end of Jesus’ incarnation, he makes reference to cosmic astrology.  In response to his disciples’ questions about his return to Earth, Jesus explains, “There will be signs in the sun, the moon, and the stars.”55

Reincarnation is the foundation upon which esoteric astrology is interpreted.  As I state earlier, reincarnation is the means by which humanity evolves into the perfected state of a child of God.  In our brief look at the readings of Edgar Cayce, we see how our behaviors in one lifetime have impact upon a future lifetime.  Esoteric astrology reveals the ways in which past lives influence the present one.  For example, a client says to me, “Even as a small child, I have always felt I had to be the parent instead of the child.”  Her present life is filled with resentment over this fact.  An esoteric interpretation of this client’s birth chart reveals Saturn in the fourth house.  Saturn often assumes the role of a good parent in our lives.  It insists that we learn a particular soul lesson, just as a good parent requires the child to do homework for school.  The individual’s Saturn is retrograde indicating the tendency to bring an emotional overload from past lives into the present.  It also reveals the likelihood of responsibilities within the childhood home.  The fourth house reveals our psychological constitution and the relationship with mother.  With Saturn retrograde in the fourth house and ruling her Capricorn Ascendant, my client will assume the role of parent from the birth process on, with motivational factors based in past lives.  Even though the mother’s psychological makeup plays into this behavior, tremendous emotional release results from knowing the basis for her parental feelings comes from past lives.  Forgiveness in the present is made easier, thereby transcending the need to reap the results of her resentment in a future life.  She can now choose to sow the seeds of forgiveness.  With this new insight, my client may also choose whether or not to continue assuming the parental role in personal relationships.

Once more questions plague my mind.

“Why does our Western culture choose to ignore the valuable contributions the concept of reincarnation can make in our understanding of life?”

“Why is the Church so hesitant to give credence to a belief in reincarnation?”

One reason is that Christian historians have failed to give reincarnation its rightful place in Church history. As in the case of astrology, Western Christian historians have simply not reported the role of reincarnation. With the dawn of the New Age of Aquarius, ancient books are being translated into English. The layperson can now catch glimpses into what really happened.

The Encyclopedia of Religion concludes an article on reincarnation by affirming that the concepts of reincarnation and karma have done more to shape the whole of Asian thought than any other.56 Ancient Greece, India, and Egypt have well developed belief systems centering around reincarnation.  Pythagoras, Empedocles, Plato, Plotinus, and their followers teach reincarnation.57 Pythagoras, Empedocles, and Plato predate the Christian era.  Plotinus lives and teaches between 205-270 C.E., as a contemporary of the Christian Church Fathers.  He is not alone in his beliefs concerning reincarnation.

The vast majority of Christians dismiss the above information with a question for which they seek no answer.  What do ancient Greek, Indian, and Egyptian philosophies have to do with Christianity?  A brief study of the world map provides an answer.  Palestine is in close proximity to each of these countries.  Trade routes between Palestine, Greece, India, and Egypt are numerous, allowing a constant exchange of products and ideas with these nations.  Most of us know the Old Testament account of the Hebrew sojourn in Egypt and of the apostle Paul’s journey to Athens, Greece.58 Are we also aware that India, as a part of the Persian Empire under whose rule Palestine lived, is mentioned in the Old Testament book of Esther?59 Archaeological digs have unearthed vases, carnelian beads, and seals that attest to the trade with India dated as far back as 2500-2200 B.C.E.  An Aramaic (the language of Jesus) inscription from the third century B.C.E. illustrates the contact between India and the biblical lands.60

Christianity originates in the Middle East. It grows out of the Jewish religion based in Palestine.  The milieu of both the Old and New Testaments is this intermingling of Greek, Egyptian, and Indian beliefs and customs.  To these, we can add the influence of Persia, Syria, and Italy (all of which periodically rule Palestine during biblical times).  Reincarnation is a widely accepted belief throughout the thousands of years represented in the Bible.  It is naïve to believe the concepts of karma and reincarnation, which “have done more than any other belief to shape the whole of Asian thought” are not known and accepted among the people of the Bible.

Josephus, the first century Jewish historian and contemporary of the Apostle Paul (37-100 C.E.), verifies the presence of a belief in reincarnation within the Jewish community.  He describes three philosophical sects among the Jews of the first century C.E.: the Sadducees, Pharisees, and Essenes.

The Pharisees teach reincarnation for the good souls only:  “They say that all souls are incorruptible; but that the souls of good men are only removed into other bodies, but that the souls of bad men are subject to eternal punishment.61

The Essenes teach pre-existence of the soul:  “For their doctrine is this: ‘That bodies are corruptible, and that the matter they are made of is not permanent; but that the souls are immortal, and continue for ever; and that they come out of the most subtile air, and are united to their bodies as in prisons, into which they are drawn by a certain natural enticement; but that when they are set free from the bonds of the flesh, they then, are released from a long bondage, rejoice and mount upward.’”62 A belief in the pre-existence of souls is the foundation of reincarnation.  Many scholars are convinced, for three reasons, that the Essenes accept reincarnation.  First, they have high regard for the Jewish Kabala, in which reincarnation is taught as a basic belief.  The earliest known Jews to call themselves Kabalists are the Tanaiim who reside in Jerusalem during the early third century B.C.E.  Second, the Essenes come under the influence of Buddhist monks who travel, in great numbers, throughout the Middle East during the centuries before Jesus’ birth.  Reincarnation is basic to Buddhism.  Third, the Essenes’ doctrines and communal practices reflect a knowledge of the Pythagoreans, who are reincarnationists.63 Thus we find two of the three Jewish sects with which Jesus is familiar accept reincarnation.  We also know that the apostle Paul is a Pharisee, and thus a believer in reincarnation for the good souls only.64

“So why does the Western Church consider a belief in reincarnation heretical?

My frustration with the church is growing. Daily, in my rehabilitation counseling career, I confront the need to provide meaningful services to my clients.  I watch as they persist in self-destructive behavior, partly because their church cannot assist them in putting together the tangled pieces of life’s puzzle.  The belief in reincarnation is like removing the lid from a pot of boiling water—it lets the steam out.  No longer is the steam screaming to be released from the small confines of one lifetime.  Knowing that we have lived before and will live again releases a tremendous amount of bottled up emotional energy.

The belief in only one physical life does more to distort our perceptions concerning life, God, and each other than any other concept.  Failure in a career means failure for life:  “There will be no other opportunity.”  Failure to meet a suitable mate cuts deeply into the self-esteem of the individual:  “No one has loved me enough to marry me.”  The loss of a mate through divorce or death can be devastating:  “I’ll never be happy again.”  The brilliant young person killed in an automobile accident:  “His only chance at life is cut short.”  The person born with a debilitating physical condition has no other alternative than to believe, “God made me like this.” Homosexual and transvestite persons are faced with the same conclusion.  Consider what this says about God to the afflicted one.  God is a God who loves some people and hates others.  Think about what this says to the individual about herself.  “God has to hate me; otherwise, why would God create me this way?”

These tragic conclusions are the result of believing in only one physical lifetime.  We are forced to blame God.  No other choice exists.  We may try to come up with options, but buried in the depths of our being is an ugly demon who continually whispers, “God hates you; God created you different, requiring you to suffer.”  God as Creator is the bottom line for the majority of humanity.  Thus, God is to blame.

The church has thus far been unable to provide therapeutic alternatives to these disastrous life experiences and deductions.  Openness to the science of astrology and the natural laws of reincarnation will allow the church to truly spread the gospel of God’s love.  The church can then offer the healing balm of questions satisfactorily answered.

“Why? Why? Why? Why put band-aids on our sores when the church can offer healing?”  The answer can be found, at least in part, through a study of the early church ecumenical councils.

Jesus incarnates into a very cosmopolitan environment.  His public teachings are simple and straightforward.  However, after his crucifixion, resurrection, and ascension, his followers find themselves in a defensive position.

The disciples face a multitude of questions from the diverse peoples living within the Roman empire.  “Why choose to follow a common criminal?  After all, the Roman government put Jesus to death.”  Their answers vary, according to their understanding of Jesus.  As the years go by, various teachers develop their own explanations and groups of followers.

Jesus’ good news, “the Kingdom of God is within you,”65 is quickly shoved backstage and replaced with theories concerning the identity of Jesus.  Listen to the apostle Paul’s reaction when some of his followers turn to another teacher:  “I am astonished that you are so quick deserting the one who called you in the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel—not that there is another gospel, but there are some who are confusing you and want to pervert the gospel of Christ.”66

Paul’s reaction to differences is the exact opposite we see in Jesus’ response.  “John said to him, ‘Teacher, we saw someone casting out demons in your name, and we tried to stop him, because he was not following us.’  But Jesus said, ‘Do not stop him; for no one who does a deed of power in my name will be able soon afterwards to speak evil of me.   Whoever is not against us is for us.’”67 Within the sphere of God’s love, there is room for variation.

Many of the Church Fathers follow the example of Paul, instead of Jesus.  They disagree vehemently.  All sorts of human motives cloud the issues.  Their ultimate goal, according to Irenaeus, Bishop of Lyons, is “the real Church has one and the same faith everywhere in the world.68 Found in Irenaeus’ Selections from the Work Against Heresies, this quote and the book’s title speak volumes.

Church historians and I can only surmise why Paul and the Church Fathers are so insistent upon one and the same faith.  Actually the word faith is misleading.  The controversies and heresies concern doctrines.  The above quote sheds more light on the Ecumenical Councils if translated, “the real Church has one and the same doctrine everywhere in the world.”  Whatever the reason, the negative results have been numerous.

One of the most negative repercussions of attempting to have one and the same doctrine everywhere in the world is the church’s declaration of heresy whenever a scholar, minister, or teacher disagrees with the standard doctrine.  To be judged a heretic is a sentence of excommunication from the church, loss of teaching position in a church affiliated institution, or loss of job as a minister or priest.  For hundreds of years, the sentence for heresy can also be death by burning at the stake.  Thousands of writings are burned, or otherwise destroyed, when the author is declared a heretic.  Remember the word heresy simply means a point of view that differs from “the one and same doctrine.”

The early Church Fathers are particularly vigilant in their search for heresies.  As they strive to create a worldwide church with one and the same doctrine, persons with differing beliefs are ruthlessly condemned.  Among those groups declared heretics are the Christian Gnostics, all of whom are reincarnationists.69 Some scholars are convinced that the Christian Gnostics are the descendants from the original followers of Jesus and the inheritors of Jesus’ secret teachings.70 In Mark 4:11, Jesus confirms a secret message given only to his closest disciples. When the disciples ask Jesus why he speaks to the crowds of people in parables, he answers, “To you has been given the secret [or mystery] of the kingdom of God, but for those outside, everything comes in parables.” All open display of Christian Gnosticism is suppressed by both popes and emperors, often by inflicting the death penalty.  Gnosticism is forced underground.71 Of the thousands of actual writings by the early Gnostic Christians, few survive the destructive zeal of those who condemn them as heresy.72

Individuals are also included in the relentless search for heretics.  Origen (185-254 C.E.) is a most influential Christian thinker.  Saint Jerome declares Origen to be “the greatest teacher of the Church after the apostles.”  Saint Gregory of Nyssa calls him, “the prince of Christian learning in the third century.73 Origen teaches pre-existence of souls and reincarnation.  In 553 C.E., the Fifth Ecumenical Council condemns Origen and his teachings as heretical:

“If anyone does not anathematize Arius, Eunomius, Macedonius, Apollinarius, Nestorius, Eutyches, and Origen, as well as their heretical books, and also all other heretics who have already been condemned and anathematized by the holy, catholic, and apostolic church and by the four holy synods which have already been mentioned, and also all those who have thought or now think in the same way as the aforesaid heretics and who persist in their error even to death: let him be anathema.”74

Anathema, as defined by Webster, is a “curse solemnly pronounced by ecclesiastical authority and accompanied by excommunication.”

In this way (and I give only two examples) the church stifles belief in reincarnation, just as it condemns the use of astrology during the late 15th century.  Although believers in both reincarnation and astrology continue throughout history, only as the New Aquarian Age dawns does this ageless wisdom gain open recognition.

Will the traditional church re-consider?  Will the traditional layperson permit and encourage its ministers to recognize these valuable explanations of a God of love?

These are questions only time can answer.  Meanwhile I encourage those of you who are restless and seeking deeper meaning in life to read for yourselves.  Do not take my word or anyone else’s word.  Search out the original text for yourselves.  Listen to your heart.  Allow your intuitive mind to lead you into Truth.  Prove for yourself that God truly is love.

Have I lived before?  For me the evidence is overwhelmingly in favor of “yes.”

IT IS THE STORM BEFORE THE CALM & REQUIRES AS MANY OF YOU AS POSSIBLE TO SEE IT THROUGH WITHOUT TAKING YOUR EYES OFF THE ULTIMATE GOAL.

SaLuSa  11-March-2011

Sirius – Hobble Space Telescope

 

The Universe awaits your presence as Galactic Beings, for which you are being prepared. As long as you have the desire to advance from Earth to the higher dimensions, you will reach them without any real difficulty. Everything that you need is in the process of taking place, and that is the great interplay of energies that come from as far away as the Central Sun. You make the effort to attract the higher energies and they will most certainly reach you. Proof already exists, as some souls are now aware that just recently their consciousness levels have risen quite substantially. This year will be one that opens up many opportunities for those of you who desire to contribute to moves to bring peace to the Earth, or partake in the restoration of Mother Earth to her pristine condition. We know there are many of you who are eager to help in some way, and be assured your offer will be noted.

 

What is very heartening is your appreciation of the situation that you are now in. It is the storm before the calm, and requires as many of you as possible to see it through without taking your eye off the ultimate goal. The distractions are many, and the dark Ones will not withdraw until they are given an ultimatum. Either they resign as requested or they will be placed in an untenable situation where they have no alternative. Every soul will at some stage have to face the music where their deeds are concerned, but we are not out to punish anyone and will allow the greater powers to deal with crimes against the Human Race. Everything about you is known and you cannot fool anyone, or lie your way out of what you have done. Even your intentions are known down to every thought that you have ever had.

 

You will obviously know if you have some dark deed on your consciousness, forgiveness starts with yourself. You have been in duality to learn from your experiences, and it is only human to make mistakes. These are not held against you, but at some time you will be called upon to make them good. The concept of “an eye for an eye” is not in fact how karma works, and you help decide what further experience you need to overcome your weakness. Ultimately you will become much stronger as a result of it, and never have to go through the exact same experience again. Lightworkers have normally reached a level of understanding where they can be expected to create very little karma in their present lifetime. There is an inner knowing of what is right or wrong that carries them through the challenges of duality. There is a stronger voice within that cautions them when they are likely to move away from their life plan. Freewill is your god given right, but once you agree to a life plan every opportunity is taken by your Guides to keep you on it.

 

When you have ascended you will have little or no problems with the lower energies, as they cannot exist in the higher vibrations. However, it is for example possible to incur karma, even when your motives have been pure and honest. In doing good there is a need to ensure that you do not also “interfere” with a soul’s life plan. However, you will be aware of what is required of you, and unlikely to inadvertently step out of line. You will in any event likely be part of a group that works from a shared consciousness. If you do, it will be because you are drawn together in a common purpose. Some of you incarnate together for that very reason, and where Earth families are concerned they can be very powerful. As you might say, “for better or worse” you will always find the ones you are meant to be with, so look at the lessons that arise from such associations. It does not matter who instigates the experiences that you have together, as whomsoever they touch is meant to be part of it.

 

Keep calm as the events on Earth progress, as at times it will appear rather unsettling but know that nothing will last for very long. There is a lot of clearing to take place, but very soon you will understand the purpose and take it in your stride. Better still disclosure will open the door to first contact with you, and in next to no time we will establish a world-wide communications system. You will know of our plans because we wish you to be part of what is going to take place. Certainly there will be increasing activity as time progresses, and meanwhile we monitor what is happening to keep a tight rein on the dark Ones. We carry out far more actions than you have been aware of, and of necessity we keep the details to ourselves. However, you have for example heard of our operations, to show that we meant our orders to your governments that nuclear weapons will not allowed to be used. We proved that we could at will disable the warheads on your missile sites.

 

Over millennia of time we have protected you and your Earth, and often that has been some natural calamity. Wars are your affair and it is karmic because of your previous desires to war with your neighbors. The big cry for peace has now brought you help, and we were allowed to respond to it. You have clearly stated that you have had enough of wars, and the plans to put a stop to them once and for all now exist. We will not have any difficulty in ensuring world peace. Again it comes down to our superior technology, and if attempts are made to break the peace agreement we will intervene with the blessing of the Creator. We therefore ask you once again to keep calm, and send out your Light to where or whom you feel needs it the most. Love is a powerful weapon that can melt the hardest heart, and as you come together to send it out so it carries much more power.

 

I am SaLuSa from Sirius, and speaking for my group wish we could make a few landings to inspire you. However, we have to pay our respects to your protocol and it will all be done with proper planning and permission. Eventually we will be known all over the world, and you will find it fun trying to identify the civilization connected with the vast numbers of craft that will be seen. The smaller scout craft will be regularly seen in your skies, as these are specifically used for travelling in your atmosphere. In this connection, let us say that the one George Adamski did have a meeting with Venusians. They landed with their bell shaped scout craft, which type was sighted on a number of other occasions. In fact there have been numerous contacts of this nature, going back hundreds of years. We look forward to the exciting times ahead, and celebrations will be in order when we show up.

 

Thank you SaLuSa.

Mike Quinsey.

 

WHERE ARE YOU, GOD? A Metaphysical Interpretation of the Biblical Book of Job

WHERE ARE YOU, GOD?

A Metaphysical Interpretation of the Biblical Book of Job

Nancy B. Detweiler, M.Ed., M.Div.

http://www.pathwaytoascension.com/chapel/index.htm

INTRODUCTION

For thousands of years the biblical Book of Job has fascinated and puzzled scholars and laypersons. The Book itself offers no clues as to its original source and language, its age, or to its authorship. It could easily be said that the Book of Job has received more praise than any other book ever written. Its message is universal and timeless.

The Book of Job’s appearance within the lives of humanity is as mysterious as its probable author, Melchizedek.1 The unknown author of the New Testament book of Hebrews describes Melchizedek: “Without father, without mother, without genealogy, having neither beginning of days nor end of life, but resembling the Son of God, he remains a priest forever.”2 Equally mysterious are the layers of symbolism embedded in the Book of Job. Its depths reveal knowledge of the cosmos, esoteric astrology, gematria,3 and ancient mystery religions that is far beyond humanity’s capacity to comprehend at this point in our evolutionary process.

“Job is written in an extremely sophisticated learned Hebrew, with a higher proportion of words unique to itself than any other book of the Hebrew Bible.”4 The Kabbalah teaches that the Hebrew alphabet is alive with mystical meaning and numeric vibrations.5 Ancient Hebrew tradition reveals Melchizedek, King of Salem, taught the Kabbalist Sefer Yetzirah (or Book of Creation) to Abraham.6 If Job was indeed written in Hebrew, its mystical language only adds to the mystery and depths of this ancient classic. If Melchizedek was the author of the Book of Job, we can rest assured that much metaphysical knowledge is embedded therein. Earth humans have not scratched the surface of the hidden wisdom to be found in the Book of Job.

******

Our planet’s emergence into the New Aquarian Age will necessitate the recognition that there is far more to life than our five physical senses reveal. We must begin to view life as it truly is-multi-dimensional. Earth humans represent only one of many species of living, intelligent beings within the cosmos. All of creation is interconnected and influences all contained therein. Life on our planet Earth is a microcosm of the cosmic macrocosm, albeit a much less enlightened version.

As Earth humans awaken to the multi-dimensions in which we live, we find that we can communicate with those residing in various realms of existence. We begin to comprehend our interconnectedness and the vibrant life we all share in common. As we look into the night skies, we behold the stars and planets as the Light Beings that they are. They are among the heavenly hosts mentioned so frequently in the Bible. Know that Earth humans are surrounded by numerous species of beings who long to assist us in building an enlightened civilization upon our planet. Awaken to the fact that Earth humans are aware of only the most miniscule amount of knowledge concerning God’s creation.

The New Aquarian Age and the spiritual awakening that is occurring will require the re-creation of our planetary institutions, the re-writing of our books of knowledge, and the re-thinking of our concepts of life. In the distant past, golden civilizations have existed on our planet. With the Sun’s arrival in the constellation of Aquarius, the next 2,166 years are to be characterized by the re-building of a golden civilization on Planet Earth. The chaos we are presently witnessing is but the destruction that precedes the creation of something better.

The sacred texts of our world religions are far more than we suspect. Since I am familiar with the Bible, I will limit my references to it. For thousands of years, we have referred to the Bible as the inspired Word of God. However, our concept of the Bible has been limited by our own spiritual deadness. We study its surface and think we know the Word of God. We have yet to awaken to the tremendous depths within this sacred text. Layer after layer of symbolism is hidden beneath the surface words. The Bible is a living entity that holds, within its depths, knowledge far beyond our present capacity to comprehend.

I experience a slight hint of its immeasurable depths as I attempt to interpret the Book of Job. Job has held lifelong fascination for me. Yet, I am filled with reverence as I realize that I have only scratched at the surface of its true meaning. I am sure others, like Charles Fillmore, Corrine Heline, and Geoffry Hodson-all of whom sought to interpret the Bible metaphysically-experienced the same awe at such depths of meaning. Surface words have led many astray because we lack the wisdom of the Eye of God to see and the attunement to Spirit to hear the inner messages being conveyed to us through this living Word of God.

The New Aquarian Age marks a time in which the Bible is to be interpreted at increasingly deeper levels. Because this living book contains all Truth, we must interpret it by using the broadest spectrum of Truth available to us at this point in time. Its words stretch into infinity. We must approach it with the humility of one who knows how little Earth humans comprehend the vastness of Truth. No longer can we read the surface and believe we have read the Bible. It is time to move beyond the parameters of any one world religion and to integrate the whole of Truth, as we presently know it, into our interpretation of the Bible. We must recognize the presence of a universe of beings who communicate with us in myriad ways. No longer can we dismiss the ancients as those who were less evolved in their knowledge of the universe and the Truth of Being. Viewing Earth humans as the only living beings in the universe is to achieve the heights of ignorance and spiritual blindness. Rejecting the heavenly hosts as figments of the ancients’ imagination is tantamount to putting God in a 6 ft. box and declaring that it contains all there is to know about the Creator of the cosmos.

As you read my interpretation of the Book of Job, I affirm your discovery of the many facets of Truth to be found within the Bible. I have included an Appendix in which you may find a portion of esoteric astrology that may be applied to you, the individual reader. I do so in an effort to personalize Job’s story; for in Truth, Job is Everyone. Both my interpretation and the esoteric astrology reflect reincarnation as the path on which each of our souls awaken to and re-integrate into our daily lives the knowledge of our true identity as a Son or Daughter of God.

I have written Where Are You, God? A Metaphysical Interpretation of Job to be a biblical studies book. The reader will glean much more out of the study by reading the scriptural text along with my interpretation. As you read the Scripture, you are likely to receive insights of your own into the riches of the Book of Job.

Even though the metaphysics included in my interpretation may be unknown to the reader, I encourage you to read with an open mind and the willingness to consider alternative views of life and the spiritual Path.

Unto thee, O Lord, do I lift up my soul.

Show me thy ways, O Lord;
teach me thy paths.
Lead me in thy truth, and teach me;
for thou art my God and my Saviour;
on thee do I wait all the day.7
