Site Changes

cropped-20180513_161806_hdr1.jpgWell here I am revamping my site. I’ve paid for all the bells and whistles with WordPress, but nothing has been able to drive business to my site. That is not entirely WordPress’ fault. The skill set I was trying to push here was Remote Viewing. Unfortunately RV is difficult for even folks interested in psychic phenomena to understand.

I also despise social media, which I feel has been invading people’s lives for the past ten years like a parasite. So rather than let social media take over my life, I’ve decided I’d just rather write.

I have made some of previous posts regarding mysticism visible again, as well as my personal spiritual encounters with my children and thoughts on the current state of morality in American society.

We’ll just see where it goes from here…

Adventures In Psychic Projection

So, if you’ll remember I recently published a blog about Astral Projection and my strong intuitive prompting to master this particular metaphysical skill. I’d like to say that I practiced this skill everyday since I wrote that blog. But real life gets in the way, and I’ve only practiced twice.

The good news is that I got measurable results both times; once when I projected to a place and another to a person.

I am also going to call this skill by it’s more correct and proper name from now on of Psychic Projection, since we projecting our psychic body other places.

I have a special meditation chair in my Sanctum (Sacred Space) that I can sit lotus style in. I’m still fairly flexible at 50, so while it causes me minor discomfort, it’s not bad. The ironic thing about Psychic Projection is that the mild discomfort, rather than making it harder, seemed to compel or facilitate it.

When I projected to the place, I choose a location I lived at previously in Florida. Unlike the traumatic experience I had with Psychic Projection as a 15 year old boy, this was smooth and peaceful. And even though I was high in the air, I didn’t experience any fear. This was also quiet nice.

You see I was a stunt man at an amusement park in Arizona about 16 years ago, and while I performed okay with falls from high places, it was challenging for me to say the least. There was no fear with heights while projecting.

My next attempted projection was to a person. This was interesting. This person is not at all intuitive and yet seemed to notice my presence, much to my surprise. The other thing that caught me off guard was the intensity of the emotions present in this person’s living room.

When I Remote View, and therefore project about 50% of my consciousness somewhere, all I am doing is gathering data. It is a very detached process. While I pick up emotions at the target site, I don’t typically experience them unless it’s very, very intense scene, like a violent criminal scene.

However, while projecting, it was more like standing in a room with the person in question. And I experience a lot of emotion, intention and information while present with someone in the physical!

I have to say I found that burst of emotional lucidity and awareness very distasteful. 

I experienced something similar that two decades ago when I was sending distance healing and comfort to a fellow Rosicrucian. I ‘saw’ her vividly during the session, but thought nothing of it and finished my visualization process. Right after I finished my session, my phone rang and it was the woman in question. She asked me directly if I had projected to her.

I had not learned the proper Psychic Projection technique at that point. Nor had I intended to project. So my answer was no, but apparently I had inadvertently done so! 

She told me that I had appeared in her living room, standing over her, hands out, sending healing and comfort to her. She was very moved by this. While I was ‘translucent’ and didn’t have much detail she said she knew it was me beyond a shadow of doubt. She thank me for my positive intentions toward her.

Now, this fellow Rosicrucian was very psychically sensitive. So it made sense that she would perceive my presence while I was sending her positive energy. But the other person in question is not the least bit sensitive. So apparently I’m not very good at being indiscernible when I project!

Who knew? 😉

Psychic Abilities vs. Spirituality

ancientstaircase

 

Far too many people think that psychic abilities and spirituality are synonymous.   Psychic abilities are our extrasensory perception and/or mind-over matter skills, where spirituality is our moral character. 

While I have always wanted and needed a spiritual connection with the Divine, I have avoided stepping into the ‘spiritual teacher’ role for years because I was so disgusted with hypocrisy and self-deception in this field.  And it doesn’t matter whether we are talking about traditional religionists or new agey/alternative types.  Both are groups have their hypocrites and pretenders.

What is spirituality?  While exploring this topic, I came across an interesting quote by the Dali Lama: My religion is very simple.  My religion is kindness.”  The Lama seems to be equating religion (which is a very bad word in modern America) with spirituality.  I don’t see how kindness can be considered spiritual, much less a religion!  I think in attempt to emphasize that our spirituality should be a part of our daily lives, the Lama has done what most others have done: watered down any attempt at spirituality and turned into to politeness.

I say that spirituality is more like a staircase, that requires effort to ascend, but will eventually lead to union with God.  There is a common saying in the modern new age movement that “we are one,” implying that all people are somehow mystically connected.  While this is nice idea, what about God? Shouldn’t our spirituality actually be an effort to have a better connection with the Divine?

To make it even more confusing, many people mistake psychic development with spirituality.  I’ve often heard people say, “Well, God wouldn’t allow someone to develop such extraordinary powers if they weren’t good and moral, right?”  Nothing could be further from the truth.  If someone are a good driver, does that make them spiritual?  If someone is a good writer, does that make them spiritual?  If someone is a good accountant, does that make them spiritual?  The answer is obviously no

Spirituality has nothing to do with driving, writing or accounting.  Someone could be morally bankrupt and still perform those tasks well.  The same is true with psychic perception.  We must stop thinking of psychic perception as anything other than a skill.

Let’s continue with analogy of the staircase: a staircase requires effort to ascend, regular steps, is not done all at once and we can slip if we are not careful.  Spirituality is the same way.

 

lostkeySo what is the key to true spiritual development?  What is the key that unlocks the door to the staircase?  Regular meditation.  The thing that surprises me most in my field of public psychic is how few self-proclaimed psychics regularly mediate!  This is an absolute basic!  How can a psychic possibly be free of mental distractions and noise without regular meditation? 

When I have asked psychics how they meditate, I usually get an answer like “well, I just close my eyes and relax.”  And that sounds good if they are attempting to nap.  But the purpose of meditation is to reach higher stages of consciousness!  Relaxing just won’t do. 

Meditation, in today’s hectic world, is the lost key.  And like ascending the staircase, forging the key requires effort.  Learning proper meditation can be challenging, but it is well worth the effort. 

Meditation can help us overcome the trauma of childhood, improve our health, clear out old, worn out belief systems, and spontaneously remember past lives.  Solutions to one’s daily problems often present themselves in mediation.  This skill, this key, is something the spiritual aspirant simply cannot neglect.

But be forewarned, however.  You will eventually be forced to face your own demons and shortcomings.  All the times you behaved less then admirably will come before your minds eye and you will be forced to admit your mistakes and correct your behavior.  Meditation, and therefore spirituality, are not for the faint of heart.
