Exploring the Afterlife [1.02]

This page is devoted to a systematic survey of the afterlife and the “Astral Plane.” It begins with the contents of two of my previous entries, On the “Astral Plane” and the Afterlife and An Alternate Perspective on the “Astral Plane.” And it continues with an ongoing exploration of information on the subject from a wide variety of other sources. Check back each time you see a change to the number next to the title.

[Version 1.0 – 24 February 2017]

ON THE “ASTRAL PLANE” AND THE AFTERLIFE

The region beyond this physical life is not what you’ve been programmed to believe it is…

…but Don’t Panic. Nothing can make a meal of you without your consent, and my intent in writing this is to help you explore how to withdraw that consent if you no longer wish to be recycled in this earthly meat grinder.

This entry is one of those that will require a long, painful birthing, so it may take weeks or even months to complete. But I shall beaver away in my spare moments to bring it to fruition. You won’t have to wait all that time for the basic points and conclusions, though. Here is what we will explore and discover…

> If you die and find yourself still in a form (whether your perceive it as a human body or a blob of energy) and still surrounded by other forms (whether they appear to be earthly sights or things more exotic), you are not truly home yet; you are in the “waiting room” of this earthly reality.

> Just like this physical world is organized according to the themes of predation and parasitism, so is the “world” immediately beyond it. And just like you are surrounded in this world by smiling faces that would make a meal of you, so it is in the world beyond. In that place, the predators / parasites call themselves “spirit guides,” “guardian angels,” and many other sweet-sounding names. And their agenda is to keep you under their system of control.

> In this physical life, those who do not take conscious control of their lives have their lives controlled by the systems established by the earthly ruling class. And in the world beyond, the same principle applies.

By the time this entry is complete, we will have explored the world beyond this physical life, which is a greatly misunderstood place commonly termed the “astral plane.” And we will have examined if we’re really ready to leave this reality and how we might bypass the honey traps that await us if we are. Due to the complexity of the subject matter and the endless distractions of my personal duties, I will be posting addenda to this entry in discrete chunks, then I’ll put it all together when all the necessary chunks are in place.

ADDENDUM 1 – THE NATURE OF THE EARTH REALITY AND THE CONSCIOUSNESS THAT ADMINISTERS IT

Living in this earthly reality, one can’t help but question it…

Is Earth supposed to function this way? Was it designed to be exactly like it is, or did it go wrong somehow? And what about the consciousnesses that administer this reality – do they do it to benevolently offer a unique experience to souls that desire it, or did they lure us in here to use us somehow?

There are only four fundamental ways to answer such questions…

1) Our Earth reality is functioning properly, and it is administered by benevolent consciousness.
2) Our Earth reality is functioning properly, and it is administered by self-serving consciousness.
3) Our Earth reality is malfunctioning, and it is administered by benevolent consciousness.
4) Our Earth reality is malfunctioning, and it is administered by self-serving consciousness.

So let’s take a moment to explore each of these four answers…

1) Our Earth reality is functioning properly, and it is administered by benevolent consciousness.

It could be the case that there is nothing really wrong with this world. Source Consciousness (God) is eternal mind that is exploring the unlimited possibilities of thought. And as it explores the limitless possibilities of existence, it becomes all the things it thinks about in order to experience them and answer its questions.

Among the limitless thoughts that have occurred to Source Consciousness are these: What’s it like to live in a reality where you have to fight to survive? What’s it like to be predator and prey? What’s it like to be parasite and host? What’s it like to live on a mafia planet run by armed groups of thugs?

Living on Earth certainly answers these questions, doesn’t it?

So it could be that the Earth reality is administered by benevolent consciousness providing a venue for the aspects of Source (us) who are exploring these questions. And as such, Earth is working exactly like it’s supposed to, and the consciousness running it is providing a necessary service for Source and us. Just like you might have played Mafia Wars on Facebook, Source is playing Mafia Planet here on Earth, and the administering consciousnesses are the coders keeping the game running for us.

2) Our Earth reality is functioning properly, and it is administered by self-serving consciousness.

This school of thought is pretty straightforward: the Earth is a predatory and parasitic reality because the consciousness that created it is exploring the idea of being predatory and parasitic itself. And we are here because we were either lured in by flashy inducements…

…or we simply wanted to know what it would be like to live under a such a system. Perhaps we even wanted to trap ourselves just to see how we would get ourselves out.

Presumably, the administrating consciousness has lured us into this domain to feed Matrix-style on our spiritual energy, which is released by us in the form of emotions. We therefore serve as cattle to be milked by this ruling consciousness, just like we are cattle to our earthly rulers.

This scenario gives rise to some interesting considerations…

Regardless of the set of intentions that gave rise to us being here, we find ourselves in a reality in which we are cleverly led around by the nose and exploited, and which is difficult to leave. When it becomes so painful here that we want to escape, we are presented with a beckoning oasis of peace and enjoyment that saps our will to go. And once we’re fat, happy, and have forgotten our grievances, we’re convinced to go back into the physical pit for another “adventure.” Getting out of a trap like this requires clear thought, unbendable will, and a willingness to leave behind everything that ties us here.

The thing is, though, that as long as we enjoy it here, this world isn’t really a trap; it’s just a place where we are pursuing experiences that interest us. It is only when the pleasures this world offers can no longer offset the pains that come with them that we begin to grow uncomfortable here. And our discomfort lasts only as long as our lack of clarity on what to do.

Are you really ready to completely leave behind all the earthly experiences you enjoy – to never again fall in love as a human, spend a day on an earthly beach, et cetera?

Are you confident-enough in yourself that you’ll follow your own internal guidance over the sweet-sounding spiritual bullsh*t your captors will feed you to convince you to stay?

Are you ready to leave your loved ones behind? Love and the idea that “I won’t go until my loved ones / everybody else leaves” is something that can keep all of us trapped here. There may be more souls coming into this system all the time, and it will almost always be the case that a certain percentage will want to stay. So the noble-sounding sentiment of “leaving no one behind” is a mindset that can result in no escape for anyone. Such romantic thinking is so insidious that I suspect it is our jailers who promote it. The stark reality is that departure from this place is possible only when we realize that our loved ones and all the others are tough-enough and capable-enough to find their own way out when they’re ready. They are God too, and like you, they can handle this.

Are you ready to die if necessary? Just like we cannot escape this earthly life without throwing off our physical body, it may be that we cannot escape this reality system without throwing off our “energetic body.” Is the definition of our energetic body form tied into the definition of this reality in the same way that the definition of our physical body form is tied into the definition of Earth? If it is, we cannot take our energetic body out of this reality system any more than we can take our physical body out of earthly life. So is your will to escape strong enough that you’re willing to face the unknown – and the fear of “eternal death” – to make it out?

If you lack the clarity and strength of will to answer yes to all these questions, it is doubtful you’ll escape the “gravity” of this place. That being said, though, there is no shame in not being ready to leave quite yet. There is nothing wrong in sticking around here to experience more of what this reality has to offer, and we are in no race to get to the exit. Just like all realities in Creation, this one exists for the amusement of Eternal Consciousness, and if you like it here, you are exactly where you need to be right now. You’ll make your way out in your own time.

The purpose of these writings, then, is to hopefully help you achieve clarity more quickly so you’ll spend less time suffering in the no-man’s land of indecision.

3) Our Earth reality is malfunctioning, and it is administered by benevolent consciousness.

Examples of this school of thought can be found floating about the internet. Some claim that our human soul collective suffered through a planetary cataclysm on either Mars or “Tiamat,” and it left us deeply traumatized. As a result, the reality we’re projecting is fu*ked up, but benevolent beings are supposedly working to help us slowly release our fear. Personally, I put no stock in such narratives for two reasons…

  • They stem from the Planet X / Nibiru con being promoted by Crypto-Masonic propaganda figures like Zecharia Sitchin (read How the New World Order Agenda Drives the “Planet X / Nibiru” Myth for more information on that subject).
  • Fear is a necessary component of any physical incarnation in a competitive system. Without fear, the spirit wouldn’t know to withdraw from situations that might damage or destroy the physical body – just like without pain, the spirit wouldn’t know to pull back from activities that ARE damaging the body. Fear is a natural component of a physical body, not of the spirit that indwells it.

4) Our Earth reality is malfunctioning, and it is administered by self-serving consciousness.

A classic example of this scenario is the Yahweh versus Satan story. In it, Yahweh supposedly created a lovely Earthly reality, but it was ruined by a rebellious lieutenant, Lucifer, and by Adam and Eve’s choice to listen to him. So the supposedly evil and self-serving Lucifer/Satan is the ruler of this world, and we’re suffering because of it.

I give little credence to this narrative for reasons I outline in Debunking the Christian Myth.

Of course, these four fundamental ways of looking at this reality are based on the assumption that Earth is an administered reality. But some believe it is actually a collective reality. To do a quick review of the different types of realities, let’s look at an excerpt from the Systems of Reality articles I wrote in my second blog…

BEGIN EXCERPT>>>

In my current thinking, there are three possible types of realities, and each type is based on who the architect of the reality actually is. Those three types are:

1) Self-Generated Realities,
2) Collective Realities, and
3) Administered Realities.

A Self-Generated Reality is one that is based on the idea that “I am the creator of my reality, and everything I see around me is a reflection of what is in me.” Many metaphysical thinkers espouse this view, and while it seems to be a simple idea on its surface, there are some interesting nuances to it…

Moving on to the second type, a Collective Reality is one that is created by a group of consciousnesses who have decided to explore certain concepts together. In this sort of reality system, the nature of the reality is decided by the collective agreement of the participating beings. If this system were applied to Earth humanity, for instance, the boundaries of our reality and the happenings that occur within it would reflect the consensus decision of our subconscious minds. In other words, in each quantum moment, our subconscious minds get together and vote on what we want our reality to look like at that moment, and the result of the vote is what we see around us. In this sort of reality, the world we see around us is the reflection of our collective beliefs, and there are no boundaries limiting us except the ones we choose for ourselves.

In the third type, an Administered Reality, there is a consciousness (or group of consciousnesses) that sets the general structure and rules of the world we inhabit, and we go in as spirits to experience life within that defined structure. A world run like this is akin to an amusement park: someone designs and builds the park and sets the rules that its guests must follow. We can then go in and enjoy the attractions that appeal to us, but if we break the rules, we get tossed out. In such a reality structure, there are hard boundaries which cannot be changed by either one guest or a group of guests. If we want to enjoy the amusements set up by the creator, we must do so within his/her guidelines.

<<<END EXCERPT

If you spend some time exploring the idea of Earth being a collective reality, you come back around to a core spiritual question…

Whence do our “souls” come? Are they refractions of Source itself, or do they originate from a devolved copy of Source?

In my own current model of how Spirit works, I see Source creating direct extensions / fractal copies of itself in the form of souls. And I see each of us souls being free to create and experience our own and others’ realities at will. So our souls transcend individual reality systems like this one.

But there is a competing school of thought which holds that Source creates fractal copies of itself in the form of “creator-gods” / “mini-Sources,” and each of these creates its own reality/universe as well as the beings that experience it. So in this model, you and I are the products of a creator-god and have no existence apart from this reality system. And this creator-god can either imbue us with part of its Source consciousness, thus giving us an eternal soul, or it can withhold its essence, thus leaving us a soulless artificial intelligence that will die one day.

It is to this “creator-god” model of soul creation that the occultists seem to gravitate, and I suspect it’s because it leaves room for elitism and exploitation. They imagine their families as being the bloodlines to whom the creator-god gave of his essence, and because of it, they believe they have the “divine right” to rule and guide us poor, soulless goyim. So to some of them, we are mere automatons that exist for their use. And to others, we are sheep that – if properly guided – can earn our way into eternity by being granted a soul.

Looking at this model in terms of reality systems, it implies that the Earth is actually a special form of administered reality in which there is no “other consciousness” administering it; it is administered by the same consciousness that experiences it. The creator-god is the “one consciousness” that both creates this world and devolves itself into “souls” to experience its creation. And souls can collectively and individually create only within the boundaries of the framework projected by the creator-god, just like in any other administered reality.

So which model of soul creation is right, then? Do souls branch out from Source or from the creator of this reality? The short answer is…

Hell if I know.

Since I am currently experiencing the limitations of being human, I cannot tell you with certainty what lies beyond this life. No one can. Any humans who think they can are either full of sh*t or deluded by the teachings of earthly or “astral” gurus. All I can tell you with certainty is that every time I’ve tried to swallow the idea of something standing between me and Source, I’ve had to spit it back out. My spiritual core rages against it, and that’s why I’ve adopted my current model of how things work. After trying on everything else, it was the only thing that fit all the evidence and left my core at peace.

Now if we set aside the creator-god model and go back to the idea of our world being a projection of our collective or “soul group,” we find that some think we’re permanently or semi-permanently bound together in the collective like a close-knit tribe. But my internal guidance suggests that our soul group is less like a tribe bound together by necessity and more like a neighborhood bound together for mutual advantage (that mutual advantage being the ability to experience this reality). I suspect that like any earthly neighborhood, souls are free to move in and out of our collective / soul group according to what they want to experience next. But if it is administered by self-serving consciousness, that consciousness does what it can to convince you to stay.

Looking upon all the possibilities we just explored – and tossing in the possibility of an indifferent administrating consciousness for good measure – what conclusions can we draw about what we should do when we die? In answering this question, I’ll share what I’ve decided for myself…

Since I have no certainty about the nature and intentions of the administrating consciousness, it seems prudent to remember the lessons I’ve learned on Earth and take commonsense precautions upon casting off my physical body:

> When I find myself outside of my broken physical vessel, I intend to stand my ground. I will not “go to the light” or allow myself to whisked along by any forces either seen or unseen. Any action that isn’t consciously initiated by me will be commanded to stop. If the administrating consciousness is benevolent, it won’t mind me wanting to pause a moment to get my bearings. If it’s indifferent, it won’t care whether I pause a moment or not. It is only if it’s self-serving that it will take exception to my actions.

> If I encounter the forces of a self-serving consciousness at the moment of death, they will likely come in the form of minions sent to convince me to “relax and go with the flow.” So if any other being comes my way during my pause – even if it appears to be the most glorious “angel,” the most ferocious “devil,” or my most loved companion from Earth – I intend to give it a standard greeting: “You do not have permission to be in my presence. Fu*k off. NOW.”

> Having established conscious control over my post-death circumstances, I intend to ponder every question and concern I’ve ever had about my life and the afterlife. And I’ll rely on my own internal voice in getting the answers; no “other consciousness” voice will be allowed to intrude on my deliberations. Once I am satisfied with the answers that come to me, I’ll decide what to do and do it. My current intention is to leave this reality and never come back.

That being said, there may be challenges in doing what I intend…

> When I die, I may be hit by a wave of euphoria that puts me in an “it’s all good” frame of mind, and I might be tempted to allow myself to be swept away by whatever forces are acting upon me. Just like earthly human traffickers and sexual predators often drug their victims before whisking them away, the minions of a self-serving consciousness would likely load me with “vibrational crack” to put me in a passive, blissed-out state of mind. So while I intend to enjoy any such euphoria, I will not allow it to divert my focus from what I’ve resolved to do.

> Once separated from my body, I might find myself besieged by a series of offers and threats that play on all my earthly desires and fears. They might offer me every happy dream I’ve ever imagined, or attempt to frighten me with every fear I’ve ever had. And they will certainly attempt to play on my sense of obligation and guilt using their two greatest weapons: 1) my own love for my earthly companions, and 2) their spiritual debt-bondage system (“karma”). But I have resisted their offers and veiled threats in life, and I will only be stronger once I’m free from this body.

So with that being said, it’s time to start examining the trap we might face by exploring the “place” in which it has been built: the “Astral Plane” (otherwise known as the Collective Subconscious). In doing so, we might find that the “Matrix” is not the product of some malevolent “higher” consciousness, be it spiritual or “extraterrestrial,” but of our own human occultists who have been mucking about the nether regions of our collective mind.

If that last paragraph is a little unclear to you, don’t fret. It will become quite clear in the next installment on this subject…

AN ALTERNATE PERSPECTIVE ON THE “ASTRAL PLANE”

Does the “Astral Plane” exist “above” our waking reality or “below” it?…

…Let’s explore the latter possibility, and we’ll begin with the definition of what the astral is…

“The astral plane, also called the astral world, is a plane of existence postulated by classical (particularly neo-Platonic), medieval, oriental, and esoteric philosophies and mystery religions. It is the world of the celestial spheres, crossed by the soul in its astral body on the way to being born and after death, and is generally believed to be populated by angels, spirits or other immaterial beings. In the late 19th and early 20th century the term was popularised by Theosophy and neo-Rosicrucianism.” – Wikipedia

Among those who have experienced or who believe in the Astral Plane, it is generally assumed that it is a higher realm than the physical world we experience when alive and conscious. But after years of exposure to a broad variety of information about it, I’ve come to hold a different view. So this entry will be devoted to surveying the Astral Plane through the lens of the working hypothesis I’ve developed, which is…

> The Astral Plane is not a higher, superior realm of consciousness, but a lower, subordinate one. It is entirely our creation.

> It exists only within the collective human subconscious, and it is an imaginary realm which is the “dumping ground” of every human thought, desire, fear and memory. There you will find every creature and vista that any human has ever imagined, so it is a vast and diverse place.

> It is populated by creatures/beings that humans have imagined into existence, and it may also be a place where disembodied spirits have become trapped due to the activity of occultists who have been consciously creating regions of “order” within it.

So this exploration of the Astral Plane will begin with me fleshing out the points I’ve just made, and will continue with a broad survey of astral information offered by the Theosophists, the New Agers, and many others. This survey will likely take many months to complete, and by the time we’re done, my working hypothesis will either be confirmed or destroyed. We’ll see, and you’ll decide.

MUCH more to come.

Love always…

[Addendum A – Same Day]

There are so many ideas on this subject pushing to be expressed that it feels like there are a thousand hummingbirds flitting about my head – all wanting to land on my keyboard. Rather than trying to herd the swarm into a logical structure before expressing them, I’ll just share them brainstorm-style. And once they’re all expressed, I’ll go back and weave them into a structured presentation. So here goes…

1) Accessing the Astral Plane: Most people’s experience with the astral occurs in the dream state, which I’ll term the “quasi-conscious state.” In that state, it seems like we’re conscious and experiencing something, but we’re actually being taken on a ride by the subconscious. It is only when we realize we’re dreaming that we can enter the lucid state, in which both the conscious and quasi-conscious states are active at the same time. It is in the lucid state that we have control of our dreams and can consciously create in the astral.

What the occultists have done is develop techniques to induce the lucid state on demand, so they are able to consciously create within the astral whenever they wish. And since each occult society is of one mind and agenda, its members synchronize their efforts to create beings, structures, and currents of thought within the collective subconscious that advance their aims.

2) The Astral Realm as the Collective Subconscious: We know that we’re speaking of the subconscious realm when we talk of the astral because of the way people access the astral. All methods of entry involve either idling or fracturing the conscious mind, thus leaving a vacuum into which the subconscious can flow. Consider these methods of entry…

  • sleeping (during which the conscious mind goes into hibernation);
  • using “entheogens” (drugs which disrupt the electrochemical balance of the brain and thus interfere with the normal functioning of the conscious mind);
  • working one’s self into a frenzy through manic dance, emotional overload, excessive sweating, etc. (all of which can naturally disrupt the electrochemical balance of the brain and thus interfere with the normal functioning of the conscious mind);
  • using hypnosis, meditation, rhythmic rocking, rhythmic sound, etc. (which empty and idle the conscious mind);
  • operating a non-standard, damaged, or trained brain (some are born with or develop anomalies or changes in the brain which inhibit the function of the natural partition between the conscious and subconscious minds).

All of these techniques create a whole or partial gap in the conscious mind, thus allowing the subconscious mind to step forward and fill the gap. So when you use one of these methods to access the “spirit world,” you are actually accessing the subconscious / astral world. That’s why everyone sees what they expect to see (or fear to see) when they go there – American Indians might see the “Great Buffalo Spirit,” South Asians might see “Vishnu,” Christians might see “Jesus,” so on and so forth. All of the gods we’ve invented can be found there, and all the devils too.

[Addendum B – 17 February 2017]

3) Why the Conscious and Subconscious Minds are Partitioned: Consciousness is the only thing that truly exists. All other things, like the earthly reality we are now experiencing, are nothing more than fleeting thoughts in the mind of God (just like it is with your own mind, the mind is permanent, but its thoughts are not). And since consciousness is both the creator and experiencer of all realities, an obvious challenge arises…

How do you project a reality and experience it at the same time? How can a reality hold any mysteries and wonder if you are aware that you are projecting it and know everything that will happen?

In order to have a true, immersive reality experience, it is necessary to separate the consciousness that projects it from the consciousness that experiences it. That way, the experiencing consciousness views the reality around it as a mysterious place of wonder. I suspect that it is for this reason that there is a partition between the conscious and subconscious minds. The subconscious mind does the grunt work of projecting realities so the conscious mind can have a convincing experience within them. But this raises another question…

Does the human collective subconscious generate the reality we are experiencing?

I suspect the answer is “no.” It makes more sense to me that our reality is being generated by the subconscious mind of the next level up, so it is the subconscious of the soul level that generates realities for the conscious mind of the spirit level (our level) to experience. To put it a bit more simply, our earthly reality is a dream imagined and projected by our souls, and we spirits are the dream characters our souls have created to live in it.

So here is my working model of the structure of consciousness (at our level and the ones directly above and below it)…

And if we focus in on our level of consciousness, here’s what’s going on…

Looking upon this, we see the reason why our waking reality is so much more substantive and “real” than astral reality: it is generated by a more powerful (less limited) consciousness. Due to the limitations we are experiencing at our level, our creations just aren’t as solid (from our perspective at least).

[Addendum C – 18 February 2017]

4) Why do we reincarnate here?: Among those who have experienced or believe in the Astral Plane, it is generally assumed that we reincarnate onto the Earth over and over again. So why do we keep reincarnating as slaves in a world run by predatory, parasitic, criminal elites? Is it really that much fun being a slave over and over again?

> As we touched upon in the previous entry, it may be that the consciousness that administers this reality is self-serving, so it mindscrews us into running in circles by convincing us that we are here to “evolve.” And as we reincarnate over and over trying to level-up our ego character, it feeds on us.

> It may also be that the administrating consciousness isn’t self-serving; it’s simply running a reality in which one can experience the concept of evolving. And what we see as a soul trap is actually a system that was established to ensure that you don’t quit the process before you’ve completed the full experience (or have grown so weary of it that you self-terminate your ego character).

> A third possibility is that the Earth reality has been hacked by some of our fellow spirits. Have the occultists created phony “spiritual realms” in the Astral Plane, and do they lure us into those realms by misdirecting us at the moment of death? If so, how do they insert us into new physical bodies without running afoul of the administrating consciousness?

It may be that the occultists have created not only fake spiritual realms in the astral, but a fake Earth reality as well. And once we’re lured into their “synthetic afterlife,” we get reincarnated onto their “synthetic Earth.” So are we living on the original Earth or on an astral copy?

5) What the body’s aura tells us about the Astral Plane: One of the first astral sights many people see is the aura that surrounds the human body. So let’s ask ourselves a simple question that lends itself to an intuitive answer…

Does the aura radiate INTO the body, or does it radiate FROM the body?

Just like light comes OUT OF a light bulb, I would suggest that the aura comes OUT OF the body. And whatever thoughts are taking place in the mind of the incarnate being give rise to the color of aura it radiates. In other words, the body/spirit complex is the cause, and the astral aura is the effect.

Likewise, all the rest of the Astral Plane radiates out of the body too – out of all our collective bodies. The Astral Plane is what emanates from the mental activity of incarnate physical beings. It is the residue of our thoughts held in the collective subconscious.

[Addendum D – 19 February 2017]

6) The Subconscious Servant and the Descended Masters: The role of the subconscious is to serve the conscious mind; it is the conscious mind’s “robot slave” that does everything asked of it…

  • It stores and manages memories
  • It automates tedious, repetitive tasks (like walking, riding a bike, driving, etc.) so the conscious mind can focus on other things (making decisions and experiencing the consequences of them – experiencing this reality).
  • It finds solutions to problems the conscious mind has set aside (that’s how ideas and answers pop into your head “from out of the blue”).
  • And it animates the things we create in our imagination.

It is this last function which gives rise to the Astral Plane, and it is the subconscious’ overall role of giving us what we want and expect that makes the astral such a tricky place. When you consciously enter the subconscious domain, it bends over backwards to meet your desires and expectations, so you are shown what you most expect to see. The “dominant expectation” it reflects back to you is a compilation of every idea you’ve previously encountered, thought, and accepted about the “spiritual world” / Astral Plane. That’s why everyone sees differently when they go into the astral; two or more people see the same things only after they’ve synchronized their dominant expectation, usually through a “master” who teaches them to see things the way he/she sees things.

This is where the “wisdom” of “spiritual masters,” “Mahatmas,” “Ascended Masters,” and other such real or imagined figures comes into question. Such gurus base their spiritual systems on what they’ve encountered while in the astral. And although they thought they were feasting upon the banquet of spiritual wisdom while there, they were actually eating their own vomit. They were seeing their own dominant expectation reflected back to them, then turning around and proclaiming it as the “true nature of the spiritual world.” For this reason, the “Ascended Masters” never ascended at all; they descended into their own imaginary creation. In truth, they are the “Descended Masters.”

On a related note, it was these properties of the subconscious that got me started in writing. One night back about 2003 or so, my subconscious showed me a hyper-vivid dream in which I was speaking on spiritual matters from the podium of a hotel conference room. As I spoke, I was utterly amazed at what was coming out of my mouth, but I soon realized that it was the compilation of all the spiritual thoughts I’d had over my lifetime. Apparently, my subconscious had taken all my thoughts and organized them into a coherent system, and the dream was letting me know that the process was complete. Upon waking, I started writing down everything I dreamt, and since then, I’ve been unable to stop. I still have barely scratched the surface of all the ideas I want to share.

Oddly enough, the dream also showed me the sort of audience I would be drawing. The conference room was moderately large and sparsely occupied, but everyone there was leaning forward with rapt attention. And the doors were open, with more people steadily filing in. When the globalists stop stalling and make their move, perhaps the conference room will finally fill to capacity.

[Addendum E – 20 February 2017]

7) Hypnotic Suggestion and Astral Sight: I once saw a stage hypnotist tell his subjects that the people in the audience were on fire and they should go put the fires out. Needless to say, the subjects saw what they were told to see and dutifully waded out into the audience and attempted to pat out the fires, much to the amusement of those on the receiving end of their efforts.

So in that case, the hypnotist placed his subjects in a state of quasi-consciousness in which the conscious mind was passive and the subconscious mind was active. And upon being given the hypnotic instruction, the subjects’ subconscious minds overlaid a projection of fire upon the superconsciousness’ projection of physical reality.

A similar dynamic takes place when a “master” instructs his pupil on the “proper seeing” of the Astral Plane. The master’s suggestion of what the pupil should be seeing becomes a hypnotic suggestion of sorts. But since the pupil has both his conscious and subconscious minds in active mode, it takes some degree of effort to finally see what his master is suggesting to him. And if the pupil’s conscious mind – which is the decision-making mind – were to reject his master’s suggestions, he would not see anything his master is programming him to see; he’d see according to his own dominant expectation.

The more you dig into what the earthly elite and their companion occultists are doing in this world, the more you see what a HUGE role hypnotic suggestion plays in it. They are training us all to see what they want us to see, because by controlling what we perceive, they can influence the decisions we make.

[Addendum F – 24 February 2017]

With all the preceding points in mind, let’s begin a systematic survey of astral information from a variety of sources. We’ll start with a book that was itself an attempt at a systematic survey of the Astral Plane by a high-level Theosophist…
