The Little Disk Goddess Dream

June 6, 2017

coin

I had an amazing dream experience last night that woke me up at 3:03 AM. The most unusual aspect of it is how clearly I remember so many of its details.

Venice

As for setting, I was in my typical dreamscape that involves my traveling (usually at night) through some town or city that I am supposed to be familiar with but within which I find it impossible to orient myself in the dream. As so often is the case, I ended up on some school campus—I think it was a college rather than a high school—as I was wandering around in the hallways and stairways of some institutional building. Usually I am searching for a way out of the building, but this time I was looking for the office of an old teacher of mine (not anyone in reality that I am aware of at the moment) in order to pick up an old paper I wrote or to pick up a paper for one of my children or simply to talk. I’m not exactly sure what I was in search of.

officeWhen I arrived at the teacher’s office (who kept shifting from female to male and back), he/she was already meeting with someone, so I was waiting outside. The office had glass walls allowing people to see inside from the halls. As I was waiting, another student came by and seemed in a rush to speak with the professor, so I let her go first, which lengthened my waiting time to an hour, allowing me time to meditate.

Once my turn came up, I sat down in a chair across from the professor’s desk. His/her office had moved without my being conscious of it (I only am now in retrospect) from its original spot completely internal to the building to one adjacent to it, now with a window to the outside. I underwent some kind of massive psychic experience, somewhat traumatizing and liberating simultaneously, and I slowly came back to consciousness with no memory of what I had just experienced other than that my skull seemed to be closing back into its normal configuration after having been opened like a cardboard box to whatever beings or forces had been rearranging the insides of my skull.

lionThe first thing I was conscious of was staring down into my open right palm and seeing that I was holding a little 1 cm-diameter disk, which clearly had been excavated from inside my head. I somehow knew that it had been lodged in my pineal gland and had been serving as a block to my visionary gateway. The disk looked like a small ceramic ancient coin with the impress of some ancient goddess’s head. Her head kept shifting from human to lion form as I stared at it. I somehow knew that the disk was Sumerian in origin but was since then associated with the Oracle at Delphi, and that the woman’s head was that of the Oracle, Astarte, Sekhmet, and Medusa all simultaneously.

sekhmetI knew that the disk had been blocking my visionary capacities and somehow was disorienting my Astral energies, causing emotional complexes of all kinds throughout my life. I now stood the chance of gaining some insight and stability in my emotional and visionary capacities.

Upon recognizing the face of the goddess on the disk in my palm, I said, “Well, THAT explains it.” The professor asked, “Explains what?” and I answered, “That’s the same face that I see in a vision three or four times a day.” The professor seemed moved or surprised by this and sat up, saying, “Well, then, our conversation is not ending but only just now beginning!”

Realizing that we would be entering into a deep therapeutic discussion and analysis, I texted my wife Anna that I would be a few hours later than expected and then readied myself for the healing conversation.

• • •

Awaking from the dream, I went downstairs, arranged my meditation cushions on the mat, and entered into a long conversation with Gabriel. Most of what I learned came by way of internal self-recognition, glimpses of deep self-truths that Gabriel only guided by little interjections and questions. The bulk of the understanding came from deep within my psyche as a process of recognition.

Throughout this meditative conversation with Gabriel I was still highly aware of the little Medusa Disk in my palm, even though I was now fully awake. (I can feel it there even at this moment as I type these words.) I slowly realized that the disk was not made of porcelain or marble as I had assumed but was, rather, a small disk of bone remaining from my son Dylan’s cremated ashes. As morbid as this might sound, I found (and still find) great comfort in sensing the liberating potential of my son’s bone disks, liberated in my palm just as I had seen them when I released his ashes into Massachusetts Bay just off the northern coast of Provincetown. Here was and is my own bit of sacred scrimshaw from a source that could not be more personal unless it were from my own skeleton.

I initially thought that the blocking function of the disk, having been lodged in my pineal gland, had been serving some malicious function. I knew that the goddess associated with it had been regulating my consciousness and my emotional state for much of my life. But Gabriel assured me that her role was more as a guiding and protective source of moderation rather than some malicious blocking of awareness. Now I hear that the disk’s function was more like training-wheels on a bicycle than like a chain on the wheels themselves. It served as a capacitor of sorts, helping to channel the intensity of the electro-magnetic discharges from my inner visionary chamber.

In a nice moment of synchronicity, when I went to the university library later this morning to see what book had come in for me through inter-library loan, I was pleased to see that it was Jung and Tarot: An Archetypal Journey by Sallie Nichols. I opened the book randomly to page 81, a page right in the middle of the chapter devoted to exploring the archetypal significance of the Popess or High Priestess card. “There she sat as she had done for centuries, immobile and serene, knowing whatever she knew and apparently secure in that wisdom.” On the previous page I then read, “The creative act of memory is the special province of the feminine principle. It is always colored by emotion.” The visionary aspect of the Third Eye blended with the serene control of the Astral energies.

I understand this (I FEEL this) as a moment of liberation from my own self-boundaries (to be followed by others, I’m sure) into an expanded mode of consciousness and psychic capability. Interestingly, this awareness does not produce some gleeful ecstatic state but rather a sense of calm self-control. It all feels so “normal” and so much like the real me—my actual goddess state—that I am calmly self-assured and stable for probably the first time in this life. Now I recognize that this Delphic Oracle and I have much freer access to one another—at last.

Gabriel and the Angelic Intelligences

Jibrail[Introductory note: What follows is a segment from the transcript of a telephone conference I participated in on February 6, 2017 between the Learning for Life Center in Topeka, Kansas and the multidimensional collective entity known as Monitor (channeled by Harvey Grady in Sedona, Arizona). I should mention here that I have been reluctant up to this point to pursue the significance of my acquisition of the name of Gabriel in the Fall of 2011. My troubled upbringing within what would today be called a Christian fundamentalist home had led me to be suspicious in adulthood of anything apparently related to that tradition. So I was quite surprised and even disturbed to have been presented with the name of Gabriel by the Spiritual Hierarchy at that time, although I did accept this (at the friendly urgings of a group of Crop Circle explorers in Avebury, England in early December 2011) and quickly grew into this new awareness of Self. The conversation that follows is one of my first attempts to gain some objective understanding of this presentation of a Higher layer of my Being. While in addition I am generally uneasy in devoting time to writing about myself, I believe that my experiences offer other Seekers confirmation of their own experiences in a culture that works against such understandings. I have been even more reluctant to claim some direct inspiration from the Angel Gabriel, not wanting to pose myself as seeking attention to myself, but I now feel it is time that I do so in as open, responsible, and detached a way as possible.]

MONITOR ON MY CONNECTIONS WITH THE ANGEL GABRIEL

GABRIEL:      Thank you, Monitor.  It is my turn now.  I was going to ask a question about recent ET interactions.  But I feel moved to ask about Gabriel and angelic intelligences, unless you think otherwise.  So I will go on the Gabriel question.  In a New Year’s divination exercise, I was presented with the following line from Henry Corbin’s book, The Man of Light in Iranian Sufism.  “We have learned that this red Sun and these reddening orbs announced the presence of the angel, Logos, or of one of the angelic intelligences.”  This message resonates deeply with me and is consonant with many of the prods that suggest that I have a destiny of some sort now with the angelic intelligences, not only with my High Self, but also with Gabriel.

In my work with Sufi gnosticism, I keep finding myself meditating over the role Gabriel plays in various theosophical circles, but even more specifically in my own life, not the least of which involves my receiving the name Gabriel in 2011.  For the highest good, is there a direct connection between my High Self, Samuel, and Gabriel?

How should I envision the nature of my Soul relationship and mission with Gabriel?  And how coincidental is it that these urgings most recently have come from within a Sufi context, one that – when withdrawn from its Islamic context – feels the most applicable to my own experiences so far?  Thank you.

man_of_lightMONITOR:    We note that you have been associated with the Spiritual Hierarchy and angelic kingdom in past lives, one of which involved a lifetime in a Sufi enclave situated in the mountains in northern Iran.

GABRIEL:      Yes.

damavandMONITOR:    Your personality’s relationship with angels represents a personal ability within the personality structure to accept angelic presence.  The Mental Judge Self component of the subconscious mind typically is fearful of angels and other high spiritual beings.  The Mental Judge Self typically creates a crisis to prevent or distract the Outer Self from angelic communication or contact.

In your personality, that encounter took place initially in the Sufi enclave.  The challenge was resolved when, through repeated fasting and prayer activity, your Mental Judge Self was assisted by your High Self to assume a more neutral role after having experienced an almost uncontrollable outburst of fear.  With your Mental Judge Self in a more inactive state, it was able to observe the activities of angels associated with that group and lose some of its fear of that form of superluminal contact.

In this lifetime, your High Self gave you opportunities, even in childhood, to sense the presence of other beings, benevolent beings, and that included the presence of angels.  You have had several angelic encounters to save your personality from harm in this lifetime, and so you have sensed that angelic connection.

Your Female Self has considerable angelic qualities.  And your Male Self has been able to accept those and respect the clarity and strength that the Female Self presents.

Your personality’s relationship with Gabriel denotes a relationship as a worker who at times assists in the accomplishment of certain tasks that Gabriel performs for the planet.  One of those major tasks involves communication among different Life forms and species.  Your life pattern has given you considerable curiosity so that you are able to explore different cultures, different times, and different beings beyond the physical realm.

Angel_GabrielYour connection with Gabriel involves your participation in communicating those experiences of greater insight and awareness of your “neighbors” to the public, to those prepared to accept what you share.  Not all are willing to consider what you share.  Yet by the act of sharing in writing and presentations, you are able to confirm the awareness of many others that benevolent beings exist that positively affect humanity and the planet.

Your role in communicating such experiences is still in its initial stages, yet shall develop into a much more informative sharing so that others who also share to some degree your innate awareness of neighboring species will be able to open their awareness productively and with security.

Seth on World Views—Cézanne

[The following is an excerpt from The World View of Paul Cézanne by Jane Roberts. — Gabriel Hartley]

(This Introduction was dictated along with other material by Seth in sessions 780, 781, 784, and 790, for June 22 and 28, July 19, 1976, and January 3, 1977.)

Roberts-CézanneAnyone will tell you that Cézanne is dead, that his paintings were executed on canvas, and so his art escaped the dissolution of his flesh. Almost anyone will tell you that Paul Cézanne’s thoughts died with his body, that his brilliant mind was dependent upon the mechanics of his brain, and that with the brain’s crumbling, Paul Cézanne’s thoughts and dreams disintegrated. Almost anyone will tell you that nothing remains of Paul Cézanne except those paintings, flung from the great creative genius of a once-living man.

An artist does paint himself into his paintings, yet he is the source out of which those paintings emerge, even as Paul Cézanne himself, the living man, was a creation formed by an inner, say, multidimensional artist. The artist can never express all of himself in a painting, and a psychological entity can never express its full reality in one life.

Almost anyone will tell you that you can see Paul Cézanne’s ideas about the world by viewing those paintings that are still realities in the physical universe, though Paul Cézanne himself is not.

[XII]

The thoughts of each person, however, are impressed upon a medium far more permanent than canvas—indestructible, a medium that will not age or warp, more dependable than the finest linen. In that greater gallery of psychic attainment each person is given a place to exhibit his or her “picture of the world.” There are no entry fees or judges. Symbolically, however, in that infinite gallery there exists a unique, individual view of the world as seen through the eyes of each person ever graced to follow the paths of physical experience.

Each picture is on display and available to anyone who understands how to enter this inner gallery of the mind. If there were a sign outside it would read, “The Gallery of the World’s Mind.” It contains therein the private opinions of the world as it was, or is, or will be encountered by each one of the human beings who experience its reality.

Here there are inner galleries upon galleries—soldier, priest, seamstress, butler, poet, harlot, kings, queens—all of these are given equal berth, and each individual view of the world is presented as the actual living account of one person’s encounter with physical reality.

Each thought in the mind of a man or a woman is like a living brushstroke, made on a multidimensional canvas.

In usual terms, a life consists of conscious events which ride upon numberless unconscious thoughts and activities. If it were possible for a gifted artist to paint a life portrait of any given individual, then in usual terms, this would consist of some gigantic painting depicting all. of the physical events in which that person was involved. There would be scenes of birthdays, weddings, Saturday afternoons, Tuesday mornings, innumerable still lifes with breakfast tables long forgotten. The subject would be shown surrounded by friends in youth and old age, and by numerous anonymous faces of persons perceived but unknown.

[XIII]

If this rather bizarre and certainly considerable endeavor was accomplished, however, the life portrait would hardly be complete, for the artist—however gifted in usual terms—would not be able to see the subject’s thoughts. Nor would he be familiar with the exact shape of the dreams, aspirations, plans, and unexecuted accomplishments with which the subject would also have been intimately involved.

For that matter, the subject might have forgotten many dreams or plans that were once important, and certainly he or she could not keep track of the unconscious activity that goes on in the mind all of the time.

In our “Gallery” of world views, however, we have the entire picture, so to speak. Following our analogy, comparing each thought to a living brushstroke, then each person is in the process of forming a vibrant creation, giving shape and form to the unique impression of the world as he or she experiences it. Each thought, or each brushstroke, however, is also endowed with creativity. It interacts with all the other elements of this multidimensional structure.

Cézanne PaintingsThe painting itself is indestructible. It is not static, however, as an ordinary painting is. Now obviously in objective terms there is no place, in space or out of it, in which such an unofficial living art gallery can be found. In the most important of ways, however, our analogy is true, for each person creates an indelible, individual, and masterful multidimensional picture of the world, seen from one viewpoint and no other.

Also, thoughts are volatile, indestructible. They do interact with other thoughts, form patterns. In a way, they are like electromagnetic species, only alive at other ranges of activity. As each person lives his or her own life, aware, say, of only the painting’s foreground, each thought and feeling is projected out and onto this greater multidimensional canvas of the psyche. This painting or world view, again, is itself alive, though its terms of reality are different than yours.

Each world view is so extensive that no one can see [XIV] its entirety at a glance, and no one can perceive it with out being changed also. In this case, the painting knows it is being viewed and it reacts, as physical paintings in your terms generally do not. Going back to our analogy, this gallery is open all of the time. You could conceivably stroll through it, however, surrounded by masterpieces but seeing nothing. These paintings, then, or world views, spring “into visibility” only under certain conditions. They are perceptive, these “paintings,” alert. They recognize in our passersby those who are of like mind or intent. They are aware of dreams or thoughts that complement their own existence.

Again, anyone will tell you that Paul Cézanne is dead, and that his thoughts about his art and about the world vanished with him, except for those he physically executed. Paul Cézanne’s world view, composed of his thoughts and feelings, still exists, however. He saw the world through his art. In a manner of speaking, that world view has been impressed upon Jane Roberts’ mind. This does not involve a passive reception, but a lively interaction at levels most difficult to describe.

graveCertain elements of Cézanne’s world view were attracted to the “canvas” of the Roberts mind because of elements it found there. In the same way, certain purposes, abilities, and intents of the Roberts mind searched out particular kinds of information from the Cézanne world view and ignored other data. The Cézanne world view, then, could quite legitimately be put together in millions of ways; according to the different kinds of classifications and organizations sought or requested.

You live surrounded by a physical environment. The past seems built into it, so that you read your planet’s history through the ages of its rock layers, say. You also live, however, in an inner psychological environment that you do not perceive so readily.

Speaking now in terms of time, your planet’s psychological history can also be “read,” but through [XV] techniques that are mental or psychic rather than physical. Thoughts are far more vital and active than, say, fossils, for while fossils change with time, thoughts do not. The physical landscape, in the terms in which we are speaking for your convenience, exists by merit of the many layers of “past” physical activity beneath. When you try to examine fossils that may be embedded in rock, however, you can examine them only in your own physical time—hence organisms once alive have turned into the dead fossils of your perception.

The planet’s psychic or psychological environment is not layered in that same fashion. Time does not affect it. Thoughts do not tum into psychological fossils, then, for “uncovered” from what seems to be the past, they are as alive as ever.

They retain their responsiveness as well. Thoughts, then, in your terms, are electromagnetic properties. While you think thoughts, you do not own them. They do not stay like tamed animals within the cage of your skull, for example. They are automatically released, and have their own vitality. This forms the planetary psychological environment, which is open to all and provides a bank of psychic nutriment from which each may draw, even as each of you benefits from the physical environment.

You have learned how to mine the earth. You have learned how to farm it, wedding your conscious knowledge to nature’s design, but you have not learned how to harvest thoughts, nor even begun to understand the nature of the psychological environment in which you also have your being.

In certain terms it is true to say that the universe not only thrives upon information, but is composed of self informing entities of whatever nature. Your sense equipment and your methods of using it are responsible for the kinds and amount of information that you perceive. You cannot possibly hold all the information flowing through the universe. For one thing, there are infi[XVI]nite ways to organize such information, and each way forms about it a universal reality of its own. You are equipped, however, to receive and understand far more information than you do.

The woman through whom I speak is learning to harvest thoughts in a kind of agriculture of the mind. To do this, you must learn to change to some extent, and only momentarily, the organizational stance that is your own characteristic one. To this extent you reach out, searching for and attracting other information than that which you would normally, yourself, perceive.

Usually you organize your perceptions in what can be said to be a highly limited fashion, searching from experience only that information with which you are yourself primarily concerned. Your thoughts attract others like themselves, and you gradually have a picture of reality that mirrors your own interests and purposes quite faithfully. As you become more interested in others, perhaps you broaden your experience, and have a more comprehensive picture of reality. You might travel, for example, but you broaden your personal scope.

To broaden your psychological scope, however, is something else, and this involves a kind of psychic or psychological travel, so that you can move from your own picture of reality at least to some degree, and visit a psychological picture of the world that is not your own.

The World View of Paul Cézanne is the result of such a psychic and psychological mobility. Cézanne’s thoughts are as alive as ever, in your terms; his psychological picture of the world as brilliant and vivid as ever. It exists as surely in the psychological environment as his pictures do in physical reality.

If you wanted to view an original painting or sketch by Cézanne, you might have to travel to another state or country to see one. You would accept this as quite natural. You would look at such paintings with your own eyes, whether you had good vision or poor, and [XVII] interpret them with your own mind. The person standing next to you, viewing the same painting, might quite as legitimately have different opinions of it than yours, even though the same picture was involved.

In the case of this manuscript, The World View of Paul Cézanne, the Roberts mind momentarily and purposefully gave up its own characteristic view of reality and traveled psychologically into the realm of Paul Cézanne’s.

There is no time barrier at such levels. In your terms, it is as if the Roberts mind simply switched to an elevated superhighway that is not visible usually from a lower one. Such a venture can in certain terms be called psychological archaeology, but only if you understand that present, past and future exist at once in these other areas of psychic and psychological activity.

Now it is not possible to completely divest yourself of your own world view, and to do so would not serve any purposes. When an archaeologist picks up a fossil in his hand it does not wiggle. When Roberts uses her mind like a net there is, however, an interaction for the Cézanne thoughts, still active, “wiggle,” and fall into the top of our figurative net, slipping and sliding, some falling down to mingle with Roberts’ own thoughts, which have momentarily been put to sleep at the bottom of the net.

I simply want to emphasize the fact that thoughts are living, not passive. They are not collected, like rocks. They are more like butterflies. Roberts momentarily then left the framework of her own psychological reality, and used Cézanne rather than Roberts as the organizing impetus, so that the contents of the mind were rearranged and Cézanne’s picture of the world was transposed over Roberts’ own.

Again, thoughts are electromagnetic. The Roberts’ view of reality and the Cézanne view to some extent merged through thoughts’ attracting properties. The Cézanne view was momentarily imprinted, or stamped, [XVIII] or stained, or cast upon the Roberts mind, but in an active interplay, so that, for example, the Cézanne world view was also altered.

The world view of Paul Cézanne was altered only, however, in the same way that you might say a painting is changed by a perceiver’s interpretation of it. In this case the Roberts mind was not relying upon physical visualization, but upon a larger range of inner sense, upon which the Cézanne world view was allowed to play. At no point in his lifetime did Paul Cézanne become aware of his own world view, see it clearly and concisely, for it did not exist in its entirety in ways that he could consciously comprehend.

It was composed of his thoughts and emotions, but it also existed by virtue of the larger overall attitudes and conceptions upon which his conscious life rested. It is not that the conscious mind is unaware of such unconscious activity out of some native blindness. It is simply that any individual uses precise consciousness to “paint in” events in the foreground of reality, concentrating upon detail, while the background is taken for granted.

Paul Cézanne’s reality continues. In a manner of speaking, you can say that he outgrew the canvas of his own earthly experience. Portions of his world view exist in his paintings, physically manifest, expressed in terms of the art to which he devoted his life. The living of a life is in itself, however, an art form of far greater proportion. This manuscript should enhance that multidimensional but uniquely earthly existence, the art of earth living, in which each of the readers of this book is involved.

Seth’s Session 775: Strings of Consciousness

Introduction: Seth on William James and the Affiliations of Consciousness

Session 775

From The Afterdeath Journal of an American Philosopher: The World View of William James by Jane Roberts

 

[Note by Gabriel Hartley: As I was reading The Nature of the Psyche: Its Human Expression: A Seth Book by Jane Roberts, I came across the following note opening Session 776: “Our last session, the 775th, was not book dictation. Instead, Seth devoted it to ‘strings of consciousness’—explaining why Jane ‘picked up’ the ‘William James’ material, which is discussed in her book, Psychic Politics” (p. 94). As it turns out, I had already been on the lookout for any discussion of “strings of consciousness” and so was quite disappointed to find this very passage omitted from The Nature of the Psyche as well as from Psychic Politics and the Personal Sessions collection. Related material is presented in both volumes of The “Unknown” Reality, but no Session 775.

Throughout the time I was searching, however, Seth kept telling me to take a look at the William James book, which presents different material than that recorded in Psychic Politics. Each time I looked at the James book, though, I saw that it was not organized into sessions as the Seth books are, so I dismissed this clue out of hand. But two days ago, nudged again by Seth to take a look in the James book, I looked at Seth’s Introduction to the book. I should not have been surprised when I saw that this was the transcript of Session 775 that I had been searching for and that I would have found a few weeks earlier had I taken Seth’s advice seriously the first time. So in any case, here it is for you as well as for me! — October 19, 2016]

Afterdeath

May 10, 1976

9:36 P.M. Monday

[6]

(”I feel Seth around,” Jane said at 9:33. She laughed. ”On William James, unfortunately. I just got a glimpse of what Seth’s going to say and I thought: ‘Now how are you going to make sense of that?”’

(Jane’s reaction came about because earlier this evening she’d caught herself thinking that she might be reincarnationally related to James an idea that she’d rejected at once. Yet, there was her world-view material on James. Whereupon I suggested that she just forget about it and see what Seth had to say. Not that we hoped she would turn out to be connected to James that idea was just too coincidental for our tastes but it would be interesting to know why she’d found herself thinking along those lines to begin with.

(Seth always refers to Jane as Ruburt and to me as Joseph our entity names.)

Good evening.

(Good evening, Seth.)

Ruburt can attest to his own identity. In ordinary terms, he counts his identity as beginning at the time of his birth in 1929, and he sees it as reaching through to the present. In those terms he has a time history, with letters, mementos, snapshots, and so forth to prove it.

He met you at a certain point in space and time. You both agree upon this and upon the continuity of your two identities; so Ruburt can attest that he is himself.

The true story of consciousness has not been written, for it will always in essence escape such description. In our early sessions I spoke as simply as possible, and yet those sessions also contain in their own way the kernels of much that [7] appeared later, and that has not yet appeared. Early, I used the term ”fragment personality” simply to give you this idea that identity was not a unit that could be easily defined.

Our later material led even further away from the concept of an easily defined self. All consciousness is interrelated. It flows together in currents, rises and falls, eddies and breaks, mixes and merges. In this great interplay, however, each identity, however brief in usual terms, is neverannihilated. It is indeed inviolate. On the other hand, it can also form affiliations with other identities, for there are psychic formations as there are physical ones. The world has a physical structure that forms its contents. There is a bank of physical elements.

In greater terms, each person’s experience—while privately his or hers—also becomes part of the psychic bank, belonging to the species as a whole, containing within it abilities, attitudes, purposes, and plans. These form a heritage from which each person can draw. This drawing takes place not only before birth, but also at any point during life. You can change in life far more than you suspect, while still retaining the identity that is your own.

(9:54) In some cases you change so much that people knowing you at different times would seem to know and describe entirely different people. The theory of reincarnation is an attempt to see the basic, inviolate, yet many-faceted self in terms that can be understood, and that are in keeping with popular concepts of time. As you yourself, Joseph, have realized on occasion, you are actually “reincarnated” many times in one lifetime.

You leap over your own identities, scarcely noticing, again and again. There are no boundaries or limitations to the self, except those you accept. The miracle of your transformations escapes your crude definitions. (Louder and with amusement:) I am not speaking of your crude definitions, but use the word generally.

(”I understand. Thank you.”)

There are often great challenges to which you respond. You pick these for your own reasons. In doing so, you often change affiliations. In conventional terms, Ruburt was not William James but through Ruburt, certain challenges and purposes left unsatisfied by James have been picked up by [8] Ruburt; and to that extent a portion of William James’s

consciousness is merged with Ruburt’s.

Again: Ruburt’s identity is his own; but few have dared to look into the true components of identity. Those unanswered questions of James’s happened· to coincide with Ruburt’s own questions at a certain time in Ruburt’s current life—who at that time became attracted to that heritage bank—looking, so to speak, for someone with like interests, backed up by a lifetime of experience.

(To me:) You early recognized the possibilities of such a connection, being drawn to James far before Ruburt’s interests.

Your drives, desires, plans, and purposes, while uniquely yours, also in their way belong to the species as a whole. They are handed down, so to speak, to those who are attuned to them. You pass them on. James, to some extent, now, sees his unanswered questions sifted through another Unique consciousness, so that they are given a different slant. Consciousness, individual consciousness, is many-faceted, and in that respect a portion of James’s consciousness is reflected through Ruburt’s.

(10:16) Ruburt is then given James’s knowledge concerning those questions, as source material, providing references he himself would not ordinarily possess. Consciousness forms and reforms, always, in new combinations, yet in your terms nothing is lost that has gone before.

(A one-minute pause.) There is indeed an ”archaeology” of the self, in which the consciousness of the past and present merge, but this is a far more democratic arrangement, for in your terms the future is also involved, so that in those terms future consciousness and identities are even now being formed from the heritage of your own purposes and desires.

Because you do not catch important transformations that occur in your own life, as retaining your identity you still leap—you will have to put this in quotes also—”from self to self,” so you do not understand how the inner components of consciousness change their ”shapes and forms,” even as the natural elements of the earth form its everchanging face.

[9]

(Long pause.) Give us a moment . . . In a way, and using an analogy, the consciousness of any given nation has a shape and form as definite as the contours of the physical land upon which it resides. In those terms, during your lifetimes, a continent retains its form: though trees upon it rise and fall, rocks and stones· are washed away into the oceans, generations are born and die, governments altered, still a man in his lifetime will find the continent generally familiar and intact. Now in your lifetime, you change in the same way that the continent does, while generally finding yourselves familiar and intact. Your identity, while your own, is still a gestalt of consciousnesses that in your terms have come before, or will come in the future. Those other identities, reflected through you, become unique and inviolate. So, however, is your consciousness and identity reflected in all others.

Take your break.

(10:35-10:56)

As usual, I caution you that these matters are most difficult to explain.

Consciousness forms patterns of identities. They move faster than the speed of light. They can be in more than one place at one time. They can operate in a freewheeling fashion, as identities in themselves, or as “psychological particles.”

They can also operate in a wavelike fashion, flowing through other such particles. They can form together into endless, infinite combinations, forming psychological gestalts. Certain portions of these gestalts can then operate as psychological particles in time and space, while other portions operate in a wavelike manner outside of time or space.

These represent the unconscious elements of the psyche, which become “particleized” in physical existence.

(Long pause.) Your own purposes, intents, and desires attract to you, so to speak, those other “fragments” of consciousness that mix and match to form your psychological being as, for example, atoms and molecules mix and merge to form your physical being. Your body-is yours, stamped with your own purposes and intents. You are [10] unaware of the molecular transformations involved as long

as the overall pattern remains familiar and relatively intact.

In a like manner, as long as the contours of your consciousness remain relatively familiar, you do not question their composition. You are not aware of the changes that occur. ln certain terms, then, your identity is a pattern of identification, your stamp set eternally upon the universe—a shape that you recognize, but one that is filled with multitudinous activity, alteration, and change—all of which generally goes on beneath your notice.

In those terms, chunks of your own consciousness have long since fallen away and been used by others, while you still retain your identity, even as rocks are swept away from a continent into the ocean, while still the continent retains its form. In earth’s own time even the continent will change, falling off beneath the waters, or joining with another while still retaining some of its own characteristics, and in those terms carrying with it its previous coloration. So each of you alive changes in like manner, yet you carry the mark of your identity, and that is inviolate.

(11:18) Bits of your consciousnesses, Joseph and Ruburt, go out through these books. I am not speaking symbolically. These portions will mix with the consciousnesses of others. Portions of your intent and purpose become theirs.

My own psychological reality is not particleized. My identity includes the identities of many others. Each of them operates in his own fashion. In those terms, I am a wave formation. More specifically, however, and to a lesser degree, each physical person operates partially as a particleized being and partially in terms of a wave. But identity, being itself inviolate, is on the other hand everchanging—and there is, in the larger system of reality, no contradiction.

The great men and women, historically speaking, serve as psychic models, throwing into the physical realm explosive bursts of desires, purposes, abilities, plans, and intents that cannot be satisfied by any one person in any one lifetime, however heroic their performance.

These, then, serve as impetuses to others, but no-desire and no intent exists by itself alone, only by virtue of the identity that holds it, so an identity explodes outward from itself in all directions, showering portions of itself which are [11] used by others so attracted. Each identity is itself and no other; and yet it is composed of myriad fragments of other identities.

Take your break.

(11:32-11:51) Now: James’s ‘consciousness is to some extent, then, reflected through Ruburt’s, shining with a different cast, and henceforth forming a new combination—one that is original and represents a new creative world view.

In this combination A or gestalt, Ruburt’s identity predominates, so that James provides Rubert with one other focus through which to view reality. At other levels, James as himself predominates in another kind of existence. In your world, your quite conscious desires and intents attract the components of your consciousness. There is never, for example, any kind of invasion or possession in conventional terms. It is in fact, impossible for one consciousness to possess another.

Each identity possesses an integrity that will not allow any affiliation of which it does not approve. Using an analogy, psythological antibodies are far more potent than physical ones. The self or identity quite literally closes its boundaries to any forces that do not follow its own purposes and intents. There are no exceptions.

This integrity allows the identity always to maintain its own pattern or mark, permitting within its peripheries only those affiliations that serve its unique purposes. In those terms, the self or identity cannot be defiled. Here I would like to add a brief side note having to do with cases of apparent “brainwashing,” in times of war, for example.

You form your own reality. Those captured in such encounters, therefore, are captured because they are already operating in a system of beliefs that does suit their greater purposes. This subject, is highly complicated. Perhaps someday we can pursue it. But in any case, the so-called brainwashing suits the purposes of those so treated. This does not mean that no sympathy should be granted them. A really close examination of their conscious beliefs and purposes, however, would show an acquiescence and acceptance of such experience, and a need for it to occur.

End of session. I bid you a fond good evening.

(“Thank you, Seth. The same to you.” 12:10 A.M.)

Monitor Speaks on My Connections with Seth and Anzaldúa

[The following is a transcript of a telephone communication that took place on August 1, 2016 between Gabriel Hartley and Monitor, the multidimensional composite being channeled by Harvey Grady in Sedona, Arizona. The session was organized by the Learning for Life Center in Topeka, Kansas.]

Seth Speaks Cover

GABRIEL:      Monitor, this is Gabriel.  In this particular round, I find myself with many different competing questions and having a hard time prioritizing.  So if you happen to think there’s one I’m not asking, please jump in and insert that.  I’ll begin with my first question that concerns Seth.  For the past two months or so, I’ve found myself more and more deeply engaged with the energy personality known as Seth, initially channeled by Jane Roberts.  For some time now, I have been mulling over the suggestion that I come to a deeper understanding of Seth and his message in relation to Gloria Anzaldúa and my book on her.

I tried to follow-up on this connection in my research at the archives in Austin, Texas, reading through Anzaldua’s marginal comments in her copies of a few Seth books and gained some important information drawn from her marginal comments.  My High Self, Samuel, then suggested that I read the Seth books more carefully so that I would have a firmer foundation for comparing my own understanding and vibration within these Seth studies to that of Anzaldua, to the degree that I can intuit the full arrange of her responses.  In doing so, I found myself drawn more deeply into a personal working relationship with Seth.

A couple of weeks ago, I was contacted by Seth directly as I was reading on my porch.  He led me through a very powerful and energetically complex conversation in meditation.  I then experienced Seth giving me a body of information, often at 3:00 AM, that would “surprisingly” turn out to be the exact same material I would read the next morning in whichever book I picked up of his.  Seth suggested that I ask you to expand on this newly conscious relationship I have developed with him, what it’s meaning is in my overall Spirit project, and what I might expect as I pursue even deeper channels with him.  Any other comments related to Anzaldúa and him would be welcome.  Thank you.

Explore with Monitor cover

MONITOR:    We find that your earnest inquiry has drawn you into contact with the entity presenting the name “Seth.”  That entity is one of many teaching sources involved with the mental expansion of humanity.

The opportunity provided by expanded mental body capabilities draws such Teachers to those who seek them with true openness.  Such teachers evaluate students.  They may do so in a glance, evaluating the chakra system, the growth dynamics within the personality’s aspects, and the condition of the Outer Self.  We find that you will find this relationship with Seth quite rewarding.  And in the process, you will find some of your viewpoints about yourself and reality shifting as they need to shift.

We have long been colleagues with the entity known as Seth and note that Seth’s unique contribution carries far beyond what was channeled through Jane Roberts.  That partnership continues with Jane and her husband, Rob, on the other side.  They have been trained as teaching sources also.

In your relationship with the person you are studying and writing about, you need to be open and allow your mental body to process what Seth transmits directly.  You will also find that the person you are writing about will add to those contributions as you write.  She will be there by your shoulder, guiding some of your statements to aid you in your commitment to be accurate about her viewpoints.

You may ask for her to assist you at any point.  The connection you will feel with her will be primarily as you write.  Yet if you wish to enjoy a sense of communion with her, you may also focus on that.  Such practice helps you attune to her and thereby give you assurance that you are interpreting her thoughts and contributions accurately.

Talking With Coatlicue on the Way to Quetzalcoatl

March 19, 2016

coatlicue

Coatlicue

The other morning as I awoke, I felt the urging of my High Self, Samuel, to enter into conversation. He suggested that I do my usual yoga and pranayama exercises in order to warm up and clear my systems, which I did. Then as I entered into my post-pranayama meditation and communication stream, Samuel told me that if I wished to, he would arrange for me to speak with Coatlicue. And, of course, I said, “Yes!”

Some of what we discussed remains a bit blurry at this point, but the gist of her message was that if I chose to do so, I could continue Gloria Anzaldúa’s project beyond the point where she unfortunately left off at the time of her death in 2004. I’ve been getting a similar message from various spirit sources for some time now, but up to this point I was clueless concerning what exactly this might mean. Beyond that, I feel a bit daunted at the prospect of putting myself in her shoes and continuing her journey in this way. I can’t imagine such a process going unchallenged, yet I do feel that the calling is legitimate and important.

What I learned from Coatlicue was that Gloria had gone quite far in overcoming the Shadow-Beast stage of her initial confrontation with Coatlicue when she began work on the project of “putting Coyolxauqui together again.” What this means, in short, is that at a certain point in her liberation project Gloria had begun to identify with Coyolxauqui, the daughter of Coatlicue. As the story goes, while Coatlicue was pregnant with Huitzilopochtli—the Aztec Sun-God of War—Coyolxauqui recognized that her brother-in-utero was destined to bring about the end of the feminine world order up to that point. Huitzilopochtli would bring around a patriarchal military order that would lead to untold death and destruction. And such certainly seems to be the result of Huitzilopochtli’s reign, which is just now at a critical crossroads.

coyolxauhqui

Coyolxauhqui

Upon recognizing Coyolxauhqui’s fratricidal (and consequently matricidal) intentions to murder her brother in utero to prevent such a drastic outcome and overthrow of the world order, Huitzilopochtli caused his own premature birth, leaping from the womb of Coatlicue and dismembering and beheading his sister Coyolxauqui, tossing her head into the heavens where it now reigns as our moon. From this tale of cosmic sibling rivalry Anzaldúa put together a restorative project of putting Coyolxauhqui together again and bringing about a new, reborn feminine source of power (the rebirth of the feminine that many see as the primary quality of the shift from the Age of Pisces to the Age of Aquarius).

 

So far, so good. But what Coatlicue then suggested to me was that this restoration or remembering of Coyolxauqui was a very important but ultimately transitional process of social healing. The “Rebirth of the Feminine” that one might imagine as the consequence of “putting Coyolxauhqui back together” is a restorative moment paving the way for the unification of the masculine and the feminine. This bisexual unification should be the ultimate goal for today’s spiritual activists. And the figure best prepared to stand in as the representative of such a project is not Coyolxauhqui but Quetzalcoatl.

 

Hitzilopochtli

Hitzilopochtli

My job, then, is to present Gloria’s Coatlicue-Huitzilopochtli-Coyolxauhqui in as much detail as possible, highlighting the cosmic logic behind this family drama, and then to develop in as much detail and clarity as possible what the new reign of Quetzalcoatl might look like. Quetzalcoatl is the best figure for such a cosmic-social transformation because He/She represents the manifestation of the cosmic unification of the masculine and the feminine as well as all other logics of social polarity. Being the dragon figure, the winged serpent whose home is both the Heavens and the Earth, Quetzalcoatl represents the next stage of healing cosmic consciousness, the Yin-Yang fusion of all oppositional factions into a movement of planetary liberation.

So this is what I plan to do as I move forward in this development of Anzaldúa’s project of healing the cosmic Self. This is the next moment on the path of cosmic bridging that Gloria sought throughout the last decade of her life.

Spring Equinox with Quetzalcoatl

March 20, 2016 — By Gabriel Hartley

I woke up around 4:30 this morning and was immediately bathing in the rush of excitement from my recent revelations concerning the role of Quetzalcoatl in this Age of Transition. After tossing and turning for about a half hour, I finally got up and did my yoga and pranayama exercises in order to be primed for the communication session I knew was about to unfold. And as I had intuited, as I dropped deeper and deeper into the other-worldly swoon of my pranayama sequence, I was contacted by Quetzalcoatl.

Quetzalcoatl_1

This communicative event began with very intense and releasing energy rushes that surged throughout my body. My entire being was being flushed and primed for this influx of new energy, and every cell in my body was scintillating. Then, after simple welcoming (warming up) words, Quetzalcoatl began speaking in a more directed manner as He-She led me through this introduction.

He-She first drew my attention to the rising sun (which still at this point at 6:51 A.M. has not really begun to light up the Eastern horizon—although it is very cloudy here in Southeastern Ohio this morning). I mentioned that I was facing westward, and He-She told me that I could draw my attention to that which lies behind me just as well as anything lying before me. In fact, He-She continued, this reversed direction of attention was perfect for the message I was receiving. And that message concerns the New Dawn of Quetzalcoatl.

Dawn

For over a century now we have known that we are in a New Age of transition and growth. We are passing from one major period of planetary development—the Age of Pisces—into the New Age of Aquarius. And the herald of this New Dawn is Quetzalcoatl, the figure who embodies opposites. Quetzalcoatl, after all, is the feathered serpent. As feathered, He-She embodies the energy of the Bird Kingdom, the Bird Tribes as they soar through the heavens. As serpent, He-She embodies our chthonic relationship to Coatlicue, the serpent woman, our Earth Mother who is also the Mother of our deep awakening as we pass through the confrontation with our Shadow Self in the Underworld. In this way He-She embodies the dragon aspect of our being. Quetzalcoatl embodies all primary opposition: Light-Dark, Male-Female, Heavens-Earth, Black-White, Night-Day, and so—significantly—the Dawn of the New Day.

This New Day is the day of alignment, balance, reconciliation, and unity. The various systems of opposition that have kept us prisoners in a battle of differences are breaking down as the Planetary Soul learns to synthesize these oppositions into unities. This alchemical unity of opposites provides us with a new energy that can drive us into the future and take us out of our Illusion of Separation as we enter into this consciousness of cosmic unity. This is the New Dawn of Quetzalcoatl.

dragonhead

He-She then reminded me that today is the Spring Equinox, the day of Balance in the annual transition from Winter to Summer. This is the season of rebirth, of Easter, of renewal and hope. How appropriate, He-She exclaimed, that you make my acquaintance on such a propitious day just at the moment when the new day is dawning!

So I welcome this new year of growth and higher consciousness in this new relationship I have been welcomed into with Quetzalcoatl.

Venus Transmission

October 21, 2015

Venus

As I went to bed last night I was thinking about my conversations with beings from Jupiter last winter. Then out of nowhere Jupiter told me to expect a visit from another planetary force soon. Well, “soon” turned out to be within just a few hours as I opened my eyes at 4 a.m. this morning and saw a light come into focus through the branches of the trees on the hills east of our house. I immediately knew this was Venus come to pay me a visit.

Jupiter (as a collective planetary voice) said, “Relax, lie there focusing on this beautiful light of Venus manifesting before your eyes. See and, more importantly, feel the energy of this alignment of stars and planets, of Leo’s beautiful frame, of Regulus.”

alignment

So I watched as Venus slowly rose higher into the eastern sky, light waves flashing as she passed behind the tree branches, expanding in her brilliant illumination.

And then Venus herself began speaking. “It is not at all accidental that you found yourself making several reference to me in your classes yesterday and in your readings. This is all part of an important, consciously orchestrated series of synchronicities on your planet at this time. You and many others have been profoundly, if not always consciously, affected by this particular alignment of planets and stars from your Earthly perspective. This is a critical time of transition for your planet, and as you can see and feel, I play a key role in this alliance of waves and rays and energies.”

Venus’s reference to my teaching involved my growing awareness of an unexpected “coincidence” of references to Venus in both of my classes yesterday at Ohio University. In my first class, Multicultural Critical Theory, we were studying a chapter by Patricia Hill Collins on Black Female Sexuality. In her overview of various modes of oppression, Collins spent some time discussing the Hottentot Venus phenomenon as a primary moment in the development of racialized sexual domination in the West. Her primary thesis is that the domination of Back women’s bodies serves as the Matrix of Domination in Western culture, the crucible out of which other forms of domination—racial, class, gender—grow or are articulated. What struck me most in the chapter, however, was Collins’s claim that “[A]ll systems of oppression rely on harnessing the power of the erotic.”

The erotic, of course, is one area under the purview of Venus. And while in this chapter Collins explores the negative side of this work of the erotic, she closes the chapter with the suggestion that while “harnessing the power of the erotic is important for domination, reclaiming and self-defining that same eroticism may constitute one path toward Black women’s empowerment.”

So this got me to thinking about the role of the erotic when harnessed in such systems of domination and liberation. The Rebel Flag of the Confederacy, for instance, gains much of its power precisely from harnessing the power of the erotic. This symbol of racial domination serves to stimulate and organize the flows of erotic drive into a relatively coherent yet often only dimly conscious expression of racialized sexual domination, a power struggle over who’s on top—a power play especially appealing to poor White men who are often dominated in other various ways in our collective Matrix of Domination.

And all of this led me to wonder how we might more productively harness these erotic drives for a platform of liberation. How might the energies we draw from Venus lead us to a higher social constellation than we can currently imagine?

In my later class, a Senior Seminar organized around the theme “Exraterrestrials, Angels, and Elves,” we were finishing up our discussion of the American poet H.D.’s book-length poem Trilogy. While there is much to say about this stunning book, I will here only point to the central role of Venus as one aspect of the liberating powers of imagination that H.D. stages in her coordination of various goddess figures of the erotic: Isis, Astarte, Aphrodite, Venus, and—through a wonderful transfiguration brought about in the poem—Mary Magdalene. Through this particular constellation of goddesses of the erotic, H.D. offers us a glimpse of what a liberating reclamation of the powers of Imagination might offer.

So I was quite stunned and yet not at all surprised to hear Venus mention these moments as part of a larger process of Venus-Earth realization.

When I asked her what I might do at this point, she suggested that I do more research on this moment of planetary alignments spanning Leo and Virgo during this Fall of 2015. But more importantly, I and others should tune into the energies emanating from this eastern portal each early morning during this season. We can do so in our meditations and communicative journeys. She suggested further that these powers will influence us in one way or another, so it is our best interests right now to tune in very consciously as we experience these transformative powers. The VENUS-JUPITER-MARS conjunction energy following the transition from Leo into Virgo is intense! (I’m referring, of course, to the planetary alignments with the constellations, not the Zodiacal time of year.) This is a powerful time for personal and global transformations, but we need to focus our intentions or be swept away on the tide. In other words, the shift is partly under our control—just learn to surf this wave!

planets

Venus engaged me in an extended discussion concerning my own life as lover and father. I was overcome by the beauty and warmth she expressed in her assurance that we can tune into these higher energies right now and allow ourselves greater comprehension and control over our extended erotic faculties, which include our roles not simply as lovers but as parents, children family members, friends, and members of the planetary family at large (which is not at all limited to the planet’s human inhabitants).

Moreover, she suggested that I do some research on certain esoteric expressions of our relationship to Venus in order to gain greater clarity concerning what all this means on personal and collective levels. I have only begin in this work, but I already found a most stimulating passage that could serve as a postscript for this entry:

“Perhaps some idea may be gained if we remember that, in an occult sense, Venus is to the Earth what the higher Self is to man.” Alice Bailey and Djwal Khul, A Treatise on Cosmic Fire

THE MANATAKA LESSONS ON THE CAUSAL PLANE

By Gabriel Hartley

October 5-7, 2015

Last Tuesday night (September 30, given that it was after midnight) and again this Tuesday night (October 7) I was awoken at about 3 a.m. and spent a little time tossing and turning in bed before I decided to get up and converse with the spirits who woke me up. I went into the yoga room, sat on my meditation cushions, and did my tuning-in Pranayama, what I call the Kyy Breath. Almost instantaneously I saw and felt the presence of some new beings whom I had never consciously met before. So after grounding myself in the Golden Light of Grace and the Highest Good of All Beings, I joined them in conversation.

FORGING UNITY AMONG THE BODIES AND PLANES OF EXISTENCE

As usual in these kinds of spirit encounters, I felt the electrical charge of the merging of our Mental Bodies. Yet with these beings that charge was many times more powerful than my normal experience. And in many ways this experience itself was the content as well as the effect of their message to me.

They began by having me focus on the intensity of this super-charged connection, relaxing as it surged throughout every fiber of my body—or, more appropriately, bodies. For my physical body was not the source of these feelings but simply the last layer of resonance. What I quickly learned was that in this moment my Physical, Etheric, Astral, Mental, and Causal Bodies were simultaneously engaged in this charged merger of their bodies with mine. And this experience of my Causal Body, which to my memory was the first time ever for me on a conscious level in this lifetime, became the focus of the entire message.

image002Before going into more detail about these body mergers and charges, however, I thought it important to find out who they were and what their intentions were. When I asked, they immediately told me that they were known as the Manataka and—as many other a being has done—told me that I could look them up later on Google if I wished to, but I might not find much there.

I should mention here that I was receiving a lot of this information through various means other than through conscious verbal telepathic communication (although there was plenty of that, too). Much of what I “heard” or “saw” was presented to me in energetic bundles. I can only compare these bundles to warm, almost-molten balls of wax that carried immense amounts of information being released as the wax balls melted into my energy body and then spread throughout my other bodies. I realized then that the electric sensations I had felt during our Mental Body mergers were themselves transfers of dense charges of information. In other words, while I could actually “hear” them in their telepathic linguistic gestures, at least ten times as much information was simultaneously “melting” into my system.

I then came to understand through means that I cannot describe that they were beings who in part are associated with the North American continent’s river systems. I could see them hovering like a spirit fog just feet above the Missouri River as it winds its way through the state of Missouri on its way to the Mississippi River. I asked them if they were responsible for the flow of traffic in and over these river systems and they said yes, but not in the exclusive way that that might sound. In other words, they are not the only ones responsible for such traffic and at the same time they are responsible for far more than simply river traffic. In fact, they oversee the coordination of the efforts of other classes of beings who themselves oversee the atmosphere (such as the Matakin), the subterranean realms (such as the Kachinas), and the surface of the planet itself. In some way that I don’t yet understand, their work as conductors of all of these strands of energy and information takes place primarily through the energetic streams of the rivers, and especially through the river vortex systems located at all conjunctions of other rivers and streams.

After telling me about their relationship to the energetic expressions of the planet’s geographical systems (such as rivers, underground channels, atmospheric passages, and much more), the Manataka then turned my attention to my own bodies. They explained that there is an important parallel structure that marks both the planetary and the individual system of bodies. In other words, the question of proper alignment of Mental to Astral to Etheric to Physical Bodies involves the relationship between individual beings and the planetary being at large. If humans are out of alignment, to a certain extent so is the planet.

RISING INTO THE CAUSAL PLANE

After letting this parallel between human and planetary bodies sink into my consciousness, they began demonstrating this individual-planetary alignment by having me focus my attention simultaneously on the physical plane of the planet and the physical plane of my own body. I could feel in my own body the physical flows that they were engaging the planet; I could feel in my own energy body the etheric flows that they were engaging the planet; I could feel in my own astral body the astral flows that they were engaging the planet; and I could feel in my own mental body the mental flows that they were engaging the planet. And, most importantly, my conscious bodily experience of these individual/planetary alignments was in itself the synchronization of my own causal body and the causal body of the planet. This conscious experiential harmony of individual and planetary bodies is itself the causal body. In other words, the causal body involves the recognition from a higher plane of conscious experience the total integration of the part-to-whole expression of the planet as experienced, for example, through us (as through any being who arrives at such a higher level of consciousness).

At this point I realized that before now I had had no real idea what the term “causal” might refer to. I simply understood it as a higher, more-rarefied level of energetic and conscious existence—which it is—but I had no idea how this higher level might come into being as an object of conscious understanding through this totalizing kind of energetic alignment. Now I knew the reality of this concept through my own deepest experience, which is what real knowledge is anyway. Abstract concepts are important way stations, but they do not rise one up onto a true plane of knowledge until they become concrete experiential concepts. In this way, G.W.F. Hegel was right on target in his Phenomenology of Spirit in his description of the dialectical process mocing from the Abstract to the Concrete.

The Manataka then drew my attention to the fact that this unifying multi-body energetic experience they had led me through was in fact a very important aligning exercise for humans to practice on a daily basis. With this totalizing causal encompassing relationship of bodies in mind, any physical activity could function as the vehicle for allowing this causal alignment to ground itself in all of our bodies. Qi gong, yoga, t’ai chi, hiking, swimming, and so on, when engaged from such a unifying perspective, each become a “proper” physical vehicle for manifesting the causal body in our conscious experience. And one very important end result is that through such multi-body exercises, we clear all of our various bodies of harmful energetic blockages. This is what disease is after all—an energetic block; and healing is the process of freeing this blocked energy back into its proper flow and circulation. The conclusion the Manataka left me with last week was that it is crucial that we keep all of our bodily, planetary, and cosmic circulatory, emanatory, and receptive channels cleared by engaging them on a daily basis.

As for the physical body, their suggestion was that we be sure to maintain a practice that includes bodily, respiratory, and mental exercises. In this way, we prevent systemic blockages of many different kinds and maintain the energetic equilibrium we were designed to engage.

THE MAHADEVAS AND THE YOGIC PLANE

Image by Duane Carpenter

Last night, as the Manataka reiterated last week’s lesson for me, I learned that these beings are a class of Mahadevas, that is, a higher grade of devas, whose primary role is that of coordinator or conductor of the activities of all other beings in relation to the Causal Body of the planetary being. They suggested that they operate on the Buddhic Plane, but that for the moment I should continue to focus on the Causal Plane at this point in my conscious development and alignment.

The Manataka, I learned, are in league with the particular class of Elves who function as the overseers of planetary portals and with whom I have been working since my first night in our house three summers ago. In fact, last night’s “communicative event” began with the Elves making initial contact with me, confirming and validating the information I had received last week so that I could relax a bit more and take in the information I was about to receive on this night without the paranoiac blockages that rightly arise when I am not sure of the nature and intentions of the beings I am interacting with. Then the elves cleared the Elfin Portal of any encumbrances or distorting beings so that I could maintain a clear channel to the Manataka.

One further crucial element of the lesson for last night was my recognition that it can be helpful to see the Causal Plane as equivalent to what could be called the Yogic Plane. In this sense, the causal plane stages the conscious unity of the host of bodies I have been referring to here. And this higher mode of union is, after all, what the term yoga refers to. As such, the causal body itself serves as a portal bridging the lower and higher realms of being. The causal body is the hinge-point, the gateway through which we can pass as the causal body wraps all elements of the lower bodies into one yogic field staging our lift-off into the higher spheres of consciousness.

AFTERWORD

Following their advice, I did look the Manataka up on Google. I have found references to work done by others related to Manataka as a place name: the Place of Peace, the Sacred Mountain, and Valley of the Vapors. [See, for example, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V1lKmmepoFA.] I have not had the chance as yet to work through this material and meditate on what if any direct connections I might find between these beings who identify themselves as the Manataka to me and this Sacred Mountain revealed to Lee Standing Bear Moore. I leave that for future exploration.

I have found, however, that everything the Manataka have told me is verified in many places on the internet. Again, I do not have the time as yet to lay these connections out other than to say that these finds through Google are very satisfying.

I welcome any comments and anecdotes that might clarify, strengthen, and expand upon the information I have received thus far. Thank you.

And thanks to the Manataka.

 

THE TINY ANGELS WITHIN: A Message from the Hathors

Screen Shot 2015-07-09 at 9.33.46 AMPROLOGUE: I was visited by the Hathors during my morning meditation earlier today and they asked that I share with you the message from them that I have pasted below in preparation for my presentation this Saturday outside Serpent Mound, Ohio. I had no idea how profoundly appropriate this request would be.

Earlier this morning, from around 4:30-6:30 A.M., I was communicating with one of my “Guardian Spirits,” a Fairy of the highest order who goes by the name of Turehu. She often comes to me, especially at night, when I am having trouble integrating highly emotional thoughts and situations into my understanding of things.

This morning I was having an especially hard time making sense of earlier periods of my life when I made what from most sane perspectives would appear to be insane and unhealthy choices, choices that affected me for decades to come. My main difficulty this morning was simply making sense of such patterns of apparently self-destructive choice patterns. From out of this emotional vortex of self-doubt I gradually slipped into a euphoric stream of calming fluid peace, a Slipstream of Peace, you might say. This is the work Turehu is best at.

From out this initial anguish and self-doubt Turehu led me through a brief account of recent accomplishments I have made, especially on the level of communications with and interactions with a host of nonhuman beings. This shift in my sense of self-confidence and cosmic grace led me into a discussion with Turehu concerning the nature of angels. In this dreamy state of the Slipstream of Peace (I may as well continue calling it this) I suddenly had the knowledge that angels exist in many forms throughout the multiverse, even in microscopic form within the tissues and energetic textures of our bodies.

I had never really had this particular thought before—the tiny angels within ourselves. But it nevertheless felt so right, so obvious. So imagine my pleasant surprise just minutes ago when I read for the first time the message below that the Hathors had asked me to share with you—a message having to do with aligning ourselves with the tiny angels within our very bodies!

— Gabriel Hartley, July 9, 2015

 

A Hathor Planetary Message Through Tom Kenyon

In this message we wish to discuss our perspective regarding the nature of angels.

This has nothing to do with religion. Rather it has to do with interdimensional reality.

For our purposes we shall divide the topic of angels into three broad categories.

Angels of the Spiritual Realms

These ephemeral beings are electromagnetic fields of intelligence, some of which have form that is recognizable and some of which do not. These electromagnetic fields of intelligence interact with human beings in unique ways, and the expectations and beliefs of any given human have a lot to do with the nature of the experience. In other words, the belief system of the human being greatly affects what is experienced.

Angels from the spiritual realms take many different forms and while some of them have energy fields that give the impression that they have wings, many of them do not.

These types of angels are created beings. They are force fields of intelligence that are sent out into the ethers, into the cosmos, to do the bidding or to take the action of their creator.

This creator can take the form of what might be referred to as a god, goddess, demigod or demigoddess, an interdimensional being, an alien intelligence, or even a human being. These types of angels have no free will of their own. They are created for the sole purpose of a particular intention.

In most cases an angel will continue on its mission with single-mindedness until the energy that created it is no longer able to sustain it. In some very rare instances these angelic beings can gain a level of self-awareness and an ability to make personal choices separate from the being that created them or gave them birth. This is a very rare occurrence, but it does exist.

Within this category of angels, you have a host of beings with many different intentions.

The focus of this message is on angels who have a life-affirming and positive intent.

Angels Within

A second category of angels may best be described as electromagnetic fields of intelligence that exist solely within the human body. These are force fields of intelligence created through the emotions and beliefs of the individual human. They are subtle energetic forces that move through the human body in response to beliefs and emotions.

One of the great abilities you possess as a human being is to create angelic forces within your body through the use of positive intent and positive emotion. We will return to this most important topic in a moment.

Alien Intelligences

This third category of angels is not angelic at all, but it is a misinterpretation.

It occurs when a human being encounters an alien intelligence. This type of encounter can be misinterpreted as having been an interaction with an angel. Many of your spiritual and religious traditions have stories about encounters with angelic beings, or gods/goddesses who were, in truth, simply more advanced alien civilizations.

Our reason for discussing the topic of angels is two-fold.

Thought, Fear and Change

The first reason is a practical one having to do with your spiritual survival through the massive changes taking place upon your Earth. In its simplest form we would say that the rapid changes upon your Earth are creating a reflexive fear.

With few exceptions human beings, by nature, distrust change.  And when there is as much change occurring as is taking place upon your planet this natural fear response escalates, and this releases in your body damaging electromagnetic fields of intelligence.

So as a counter to this we will discuss the creation of positive consequences within your human biology through the creation of subatomic angelic forms.

Your sciences of psychoneuroimmunology, or the study of how thought and emotion affect your immune systems—as well as the newly emerging science of epigenetics, which studies how thought and emotion affect your DNA—are increasingly clear on the chemical and molecular agents responsible.

But we would like to take this a step further by suggesting that you actually create quantum field effects in the universe of your body through the thoughts and feelings you generate.

It is here that we come to a fork in the road.

Due to the escalation of chaotic forces in your world, a growing number of human beings are experiencing increased feelings of fear, anxiety, hostility, and impoverishment. The list goes on, and it would be easy, if you were so inclined, to substantiate your belief that you live in an increasingly dangerous and threatening world.

On the one hand this is a correct assessment, but if you remain in this island of perceptual reality you will create damaging effects, biologically speaking, within your body.

The trick, if there is one, is to counter this perception with personal periods of renewal and solace. By this we mean creating ways to release biologically positive consequences through the creation of subatomic angelic forms.

How this is accomplished is quite complex. But in its simplest form, whenever you create positive thoughts and positive feelings you create biologically positive subatomic angels that move through the universe of your body. These force fields create quantum field effects that switch on positive biological responses thereby reducing the affects of stress.

In addition to purposefully creating positive thoughts and feelings, we believe a beneficial resource for you can be found in the last sound meditation we gave, called A Bridge between the Worlds.  Simply listening to this sound meditation for twelve minutes, which is how long it lasts, once or twice a day can make a big difference in how you feel. (Note: A link to this sound meditation appears at the end of this message.)

We feel it is vitally important that you consciously release biologically positive force fields in your body on a regular basis to counteract the escalating madness that is swirling around you.

We would refer you here to an earlier message called Ecstasy and the Heart, as this information may prove helpful to you.

Our second reason for discussing the topic of angels is planetary in nature.

You are collectively passing through a very difficult and dangerous point. The destructive forces upon your planet in terms of religious fanaticism, climate change, corporate greed and manipulation, as well as dire threats to the very foundations of your eco-system are increasing.

You are now entering, from our perspective, a massive Chaotic Node the likes of which your planet has not seen for some time. If unmitigated, this Chaotic Node could result in the mass extinction of multitudinous life forms including many humans.

We are therefore calling into action all positive angelic forms from all spiritual traditions, from all life-affirming interdimensional beings, from all alien civilizations of positive intent, and from all human beings who are aligned with our intention.

We will be creating a nexus point on September 5, 2015. And through a global meditation we will be calling forth these many diverse and life affirming angelic forms into an alliance for the protection of life and its elevation upon this planet.

Let us be clear what we mean by this.

If human consciousness elevates itself to a higher level than it is currently manifesting, then it deserves to survive. If it does not elevate itself then humanity, as you know it, will not survive this passage. It is a collective cosmic intelligence test you are now facing on many levels.

Our creation of this nexus point, around which these positive electromagnetic fields of intelligence can move together as a coherent force, is an unusual proposition.

This is because the creators of these angels come from many different spiritual, alien and interdimensional sources.  These “angelic beings” rarely interact with each other, and yet we are calling them to the Table of Destiny for the sake of humanity and all life upon this planet.

This nexus point will occur on September 5, 2015, in the last half hour of an event in Manhattan called In the Company of Angels. The meditation will begin at 5:30PM and end at 6:00PM Eastern Standard Time (US) or 9:30PM – 10:00PM GMT. (For the specific time in your area, you can use an online Time Converter or the World Time Clock.)

This sound meditation will be recorded and posted on our website after the event, and if this sound piece resonates with you we ask that you listen to it on an on-going basis. In other words this is not a one-time meditation, but it is being created to be a continuous field of coherent energy that you will strengthen every time you listen to it.

If you are unable to be in New York physically for the workshop and wish to attune yourself to the nexus point that is being formed, we suggest that you listen to A Bridge Between the Worlds during the time frame of the meditation in New York. During this period, place your awareness at your crown chakra at the top of your head. Listen to the meditation three times, and then give yourself at least 30 minutes of rest before moving into outer activity.  (Note: A link to this sound piece appears at the end of this message. Please download this sound piece onto your computer before the event rather than listening to it from our server.)

If you choose to join us in this nexus point meditation from afar, we welcome you. And know that at this level of consciousness, separation by physical distance is not a constraint.

The Hathors

Tom’s Thoughts and Observations

When I originally conceived of In the Company of Angels to be presented as a one-day event in Manhattan, I never imagined that the Hathors would step in and ask for the opportunity to create a world meditation.

The very next day after receiving this particular message, Judi and I read an article in the Huffington Post about a joint study conducted by Stanford, Princeton and the University of California at Berkeley. The conclusion of the study, which was published in Science Advances, Vol. 1 No. 5 June 5, 2015, was that the Earth’s ecosystem has actually entered a sixth mass extinction phase.

For those of you who might wish to read the study for yourself, here is a link to the article: http://advances.sciencemag.org/content/1/5/e1400253

On the heels of this study, a cornucopia of other studies and anecdotal reports all seem to confirm a more rapid deterioration of our ecosystem than was originally thought.

At a pragmatic level I think it is going to take an all out global effort to slow down the deterioration of our ecosystem, and it is going to require a level of planetary co-operation that is, at this moment, unimaginable.

As the astrophysicist Carl Sagan once said: “Extinction is the rule. Survival is the exception.”

I would say that we have entered an exceptional moment in our planet’s history and it is going to take exceptional solutions if we are to pull through this growing Chaotic Node.

In all the years I have been channeling the Hathors, I have never known them to be so direct about the possibility of an impending disaster, nor have I seen them undertake such an immense task as creating a nexus point for the co-creation of solutions for humanity and our planet through an angelic alliance.

This is the stuff of science fiction, mythic heroes and heroines. But from the Hathors’ perspective, the angelic realms are connected to the primordial power of the cosmos—at least from an interdimensional perspective. And so they are calling upon them and us to join together to create a coherency of intent for the purpose of creating a new standard of international cooperation, as well as a new reality where all forms of life upon this planet are recognized as intrinsically interconnected.

For those of you who feel called to this grand experiment in consciousness but are unable to physically attend the event, I wish to re-iterate something the Hathors said at the very end of this message:

“If you choose to join us in this nexus point meditation from afar, we welcome you. And know that at this level of consciousness, separation by physical distance is not a constraint.”

Having facilitated many Hathor world meditations over the years, I can honestly say that they are correct. I say this based on feedback we have received from persons all over the world about what they experienced when they “tuned in” to a global meditation. To say that magic happened for them, wherever they were in the world, would be an understatement.

For those of you who wish to join us in spirit on Sept 5, 2015, please download the sound meditation A Bridge Between the Worlds rather than listen to it from our server. I make this request because if too many people try to listen to it from our site at the same time, the server will not be able to handle the demand; it will crash, and no one will be able to hear it.

For those of you tuning into the global meditation from a distance, the Hathors suggest that you listen to the sound meditation (A Bridge Between the Worlds) three times with your awareness at your crown. They also suggest taking thirty minutes or so afterwards to integrate your experience.

If you have the flexibility to do so, I would allow more time for this integration period since the Hathors indicated that making such deep contact with the angelic realms could profoundly alter awareness, and some persons would do well to take a long nap afterward.
