 October 5, 1974



We had a hypnosis session in which SC allowed the teacher to speak through her for very short periods of time, in three separate events. SC expressed her concern that people present would be disappointed. Also, she didn’t like to stay away from the body long, because she feared it would behave inappropriately.

THE FEAR OF FAILURE IS STRONG, AND IS OF COURSE A PART OF THIS SOUL’S CHIEF FEATURE. IT BECOMES ALMOST DESPERATE WHEN IT STRUGGLES WITH THE MODULATION OF THE VOICE (Michael’s own voice in trance). THE EYE PROBLEM WILL JUST HAVE TO BE COPED WITH, AS IT IS NECESSARY THAT SHE NOT LOOK INTO THE ROOM. WE PREFER THAT SHE NOT BE ABLE TO SEE. (SC became quite anxious in the trance on several occasions when she opened her physical eyes and could not see.) IF SHE IS UNABLE TO SEE IT WILL BE POSSIBLE FOR US TO ESTABLISH VISUAL CONTACT WITH ALL OF YOU.

After the second hypnosis session was through, ____ asked a question about a very private internal space. He acknowledged that he allows no one in his space. He wondered if others allow beings into their mental space. This occurred to him on two occasions.

MANY CAN ALLOW ACCESS TO THIS EASILY. THIS IS AGAIN DEPENDENT ON AN ENORMOUS TRUST LEVEL. ONLY THOSE WHO ARE TRUSTED ABSOLUTELY ARE GRANTED ACCESS. YOU FIND IT EASIER AT THIS POINT TO ONLY ALLOW THOSE WHO ARE DISEMBODIED (to enter). THE NEXT STEP OF COURSE, IS TO ALLOW ACCESS TO ONE WHO IS STILL ENTRAPPED.

______ stated that Michael was wrong on one point — that he allows no one in his space.

YOU DO ALLOW LIMITED ACCESS TO THOSE OF US WHO HAVE NO CLEAR-CUT FORM TO YOU, AS LONG AS YOU CANNOT FOCUS ON AN IMAGE. YOUR PERSONALITY CANNOT DETECT THE INTRUSION, BUT YOUR ESSENCE CAN. THOSE WITH PHYSICAL BODIES BRING WITH THEM THEIR IMAGES UNLESS THEY ARE VERY HIGH STUDENTS AND HAVE LEARNED TO BLOCK THESE OUT. YOU SEE, YOU HAVE IN THIS STATE OF WHICH YOU SPEAK SOMETHING AKIN TO RADAR, WHICH EFFECTIVELY WARNS YOU OF APPROACHING INTRUSION, AND GIVES YOU TIME TO BAR THEIR PASSAGE. IF YOU WISH TO CONTINUE, THIS IS ALL RIGHT, BUT YOU CAN STOP IT BY AN ACT OF WILL. WE CANNOT ASSURE YOU THAT IT WILL BE WITHOUT FEAR. IN FACT, IT WILL PROBABLY BE TERRIFYING. FIRST TIMES USUALLY ARE. WE WOULD LIKE ALSO TO SPEAK TO AN EARLIER ISSUE.

______ visioned that life should contain joy and rapture. He felt that no barriers were between us and that experience [except] imaginary ones created by us.

TRUE, YOU CAN HAVE IT ANY TIME YOU WISH. IT IS NOT A DIFFICULT TRANSITION, BUT IT REQUIRES THAT YOU CEASE DENYING YOURSELF THE PLEASURE. YOU SEE, THIS CULTURE PLACES PLEASURE ON A HIGH SHELF MARKED “REWARD”, AND IT MUST BE EARNED. IRONICALLY, MECHANICAL MAN TS TOTALLY UNABLE TO EXPERIENCE THIS AS JOY, AND CONTINUES TO STRIVE TOWARD AN ILLUSIVE GOAL THAT ALWAYS REMAINS JUST BEYOND THE FINGERTIPS. THIS IS TRULY SAD, _____, PERHAPS THE ONLY SADNESS ON THE PHYSICAL PLANE, FOR IT IS REALLY WITHIN YOUR GRASP ALL THE TIME. GIVE UP THE IDEA THAT JOY MUST COME AS A REWARD FOR FAITHFUL SERVICE. THIS IS NONSENSE. YOU CAN HAVE IT [for] FREE. WHEN MECHANICAL MAN EXPRESSES VERBALLY A NEGATIVE EMOTION, YOU SEE, THERE IS A COMPOUNDED ENERGY LEAK. IT IS FINE TO JUST ADMONISH YOU ALL NOT TO EXPRESS, BUT WE UNDERSTAND THAT YOU MUST KNOW WHY. WHEN YOU COMPOUND THE LEAK, YOU STEP COMPLETELY BACK AND ALLOW THE LOWER CENTERS FULL CONTROL, AND IT IS A SOULLESS, AUTOMATIC RESPONSE, AND MUCH OVERLOADING OF THE CIRCUITRY OCCURS. HOWEVER, WHEN YOU MERELY ACKNOWLEDGE TO YOURSELF THAT YOU ARE HAVING A NEGATIVE REACTION, WHY THEN YOU ARE IMMEDIATELY REDUCING THE FORCE OF THE REACTION, SIMPLY BY THE INTERNAL PHOTOGRAPH, AND ALSO BY SENDING THE REACTION UP A NOTCH INSTEAD OF DOWNWARD. IN OTHER WORDS, THIS PROCESS REQUIRES IN AND OF ITSELF THE USE OF INTELLECTUAL CENTER IN ORDER TO PHOTOGRAPH THE INAPPROPRIATE ACTION. THIS ENABLES THE HOT WIRES TO COOL DOWN A BIT, AND ALLOWS THE TIME TO FORMULATE A DISPASSIONATE RESPONSE. THIS ALSO MANY TIMES RESULTS IN A COOLING OFF OF THE TRIGGER. ALSO WHEN THAT HAPPENS, THERE IS A NEUTRAL ENERGY FLOW, AND THIS IN TIME CAN PROVIDE ACCESS TO HIGHER CENTERS, AND THEREFORE, POSITIVE ENERGY. THE ONLY POSITIVE ENERGY WE KNOW OF IS THAT WHICH WE HAVE ELECTED TO CALL “AGAPE”. OTHER SOURCES MAY BE EITHER NEUTRAL OR NEGATIVE. THE HIGH STATES ARE FREE OF THE COMPLEXITY FOUND IN THE LOWER STATES. THIS SHOULD EXPLAIN THE PURITY OF THE ENERGY FLOW. THE LOWER STATES, BEING MORE COMPLEX, REQUIRE MORE COMPLEX EMOTIONS TO FEED UPON AND BE FED UPON.

Many teachings speak of an inner fire that needs to be turned on to achieve consciousness. I cannot turn it on consciously. Can Michael give us the secret to turn this on?

TO ANSWER YOUR QUESTION, _____, LET US SPEAK OF BELIEF SYSTEMS FOR A MOMENT. FOR YOU SEE, IF THE BELIEF SYSTEM IS STRONG ENOUGH AND TENACIOUS ENOUGH, THE LOWER CENTERS CAN EFFECTIVELY BLOCK OUT ALL INFORMATION CONFLICTING WITH THAT BELIEF SYSTEM, AND ALL OF ITS ATTENDANT EMOTIONS. IN OTHER WORDS, IF YOU DO NOT BELIEVE THAT THERE IS A STATE OF AGAPE, YOU CAN EFFECTIVELY BLOCK OUT ANY EXPERIENCE OF SUCH. THE SECRET FOR YOU, _____, IS IN THAT SPACE OF WHICH YOU HAVE SPOKEN. IF YOU CAN EVER ONCE ALLOW YOURSELF TO FEEL THE PRESENCE OF ONE WHO LOVES, THEN EXPERIENCE THAT STATE VICARIOUSLY, YOU CAN INCORPORATE THAT INTO YOUR BELIEF SYSTEM. RIGHT NOW YOUR BELIEF SYSTEM DOES NOT ALLOW FOR THAT EXPERIENCE. YOU MAY HAVE IT BY EXPERIENCING THIS ENTITY, AND KNOWING THAT THIS STATE DOES EXIST. YOU MUST FEEL IT BEFORE YOU CAN GIVE IT YOURSELF. YOU MUST BE AT A POINT WHERE YOU KNOW BEYOND THE SHADOW OF A DOUBT THAT IT DOES EXIST, AND THE ONLY WAY YOU WILL IS TO EXPERIENCE IT FROM ONE WHO IS THERE. YOU ALMOST FELT IT WITH THE MAN R.B., BECAUSE HE WAS VERY CLOSE TO ACHIEVING IT. HE COULD AT TIMES BRING HIS ENTIRE FOLLOWING TO THAT NEUTRAL ENERGY FLOW, WHICH FOR MECHANICAL MAN IS A VERY HIGH PLACE. THIS NEUTRAL ENERGY FORCE IS WITHIN THE REACH OF THIS GROUP, IF YOU WISH TO STRIVE FOR IT, AND ONCE THERE YOU WILL FIND THE ACCESS EASIER TO ALLOW; BUT ALL OF YOU FIRST MUST FEEL, THEN YOU CAN LOVE. MECHANICAL MAN DOES NOT LIKE INNOVATION OR CHANGE. THIS EXPLAINS THE REASON. EXPERIENCING THIS FEELING WILL LIGHT THE FIRE.

Comment: We need a teacher to pass on to us the agape — like passing the torch in the Olympics. A discussion was held about the experience of looking into other people’s eyes without speaking for an extended time. This was an EST process.

THIS WOULD BRING UP MANY TABOOS AND WOULD BE A REWARDING EXPERIENCE. WE WOULD SUGGEST THAT YOU START OFF WITH ONLY A FEW MINUTES, AND THEN INCREASE GRADUALLY. YOU SEE, THIS IS A MORE POWERFUL EXPERIENCE THAN YOU THINK, FOR THERE ARE NOW IN YOUR GROUP SOULS WHO ARE BEGINNING TO TRUST, AND LOOKING AT THEM CLOSELY WILL PRODUCE STRANGE EMOTIONS.

During the session, _____ looked at _____ and saw three faces.

THE MAN _____ WAS SUFFICIENTLY MELLOW TO ALLOW THIS CONTACT. HE CAN DO IT AGAIN IF HE WISHES. IT IS OR IT WOULD BE NICE IF YOU ALL WOULD TRY TO ENTER _____’S SPACE WITH HER. THIS EXPERIENCE OF THE MAN _____ SHOULD GIVE YOU IMPETUS, FOR, YOU SEE, HE WAS ALMOST THERE.

Comment: During the trance SC was aware of another presence with her, feeling it was someone in the room.

THE PRESENCE SHE EXPERIENCED WAS THE MAN _____ ATTEMPTING TO MAKE A LINK. HE DID ESTABLISH A LINK WITH THIS ENTITY, BUT COULD NOT ESTABLISH THE THREE-WAY LINK. BY THE WAY, WE CAN AID YOU ALL IN THIS WAY, WHEN YOU ARE READY TO TRY THE LINKAGE.

I felt I was in a good space too. Where was I?

YOU TOO COULD TRY THIS WITH _____ NOW, _____. YOU SEE, THERE IS A DYNAMIC HERE THAT DOES NOT EXIST YET IN THE WHOLE GROUP, AND THAT IS THAT THE TWO OF YOU HAVE NOTHING IN YOUR DATA BANK THAT YOU WOULD NOT WISH THE OTHER TO KNOW.

I had an experience with a man — both of us felt we had known each other before — and I told him that maybe he was my essence twin. What is his SRG: late Mature Scholar in Growth, Realist, Intellectual part of Emotional Center, Impatience, Caution Mode?

THIS MAN IS NOT YOUR ESSENCE TWIN, BUT IT IS NOT FROM THIS LIFE THAT THE MEMORIES SPRING. HE SENSES THE KNOWING OR THE ACQUAINTANCE AT A DEEPER LEVEL FROM A PREVIOUS LIFE. [He is a] SIXTH LEVEL MATURE SCHOLAR IN GROWTH. YES, THE REST IS VALID.

During hypnosis, _____ asked the question, “Is the power in the present moment?” This was in relation to material he had read in e newest Seth book.

YOU SEE, THERE IS TRULY A POWER IN THE PRESENT MOMENT, BUT IT CAN ONLY BE FELT WHEN THAT MOMENT IS EXPANDED TO INCLUDE ALL THAT YOU HAVE BEEN AND ALL THAT YOU ARE NOW. IF YOU ARE ERECTING AND MAINTAINING BARRIERS AGAINST PAST PAIN, THEN HOW ARE YOU GOING TO DO THIS? WHEN TWO SOULS MEET AGAIN, AND THERE IS RECOGNITION, THIS CAN BE A POWERFULLY POSITIVE EXPERIENCE, IF IT IS FELT BY BOTH. IT CAN ALSO BE SCARY, AS IT WAS FOR THIS MAN, BECAUSE HIS BELIEF SYSTEM DOES NOT GO BEYOND THE GRAVE.

Should _____ tell his friend about this?

PLEASE KNOW THAT BELIEF SYSTEMS PERMEATE ALL LOWER CENTERS IN THEIR CONTROL. ALTHOUGH THIS MAN CAN INTELLECTUALLY RATIONALIZE ON ALTERNATIVES, THIS INTELLECT EVENTUALLY COMES TO REJECT THESE ALTERNATIVES, AS THE BELIEF SYSTEM DOES NOT ALLOW THEM ROOM. IT IS LIKE THE MOUNTAINS OF EVIDENCE VERSUS THE SHRED OF PROOF OF WHICH YOU HAVE ALL SPOKEN BEFORE. YOU WILL CLING TO THE SHRED OF NON-PROOF TENACIOUSLY AS LONG AS THE BELIEF SYSTEM IS IN CONTROL.

_____ and _____ wanted to know about previous lifetimes, so they would know how to dress for the Halloween party.

INTERESTING THAT THESE CHILDREN ARE BOTH FAR CLOSER THAN YOU SUSPECT TO BECOMING STUDENTS, BUT YOU MUST UNDERSTAND THE ENORMOUS PEER PRESSURE BEING EXERTED ON THEM NOW, TOWARD TOTAL CONFORMATION TO THE NORMS. THIS OF COURSE STILL DOES NOT INCLUDE FORAYS INTO THE OCCULT. CHILDREN BORN INTO A TEACHING HAVE A FAR EASIER TIME ACCEPTING IT AS A WAY OF BEING, AND THEY SELDOM FALL PREY TO THE TEMPTATIONS OF PEER APPROVAL. THE LITTLE ARTISAN _____ HAS OF COURSE BEEN AN AMERICAN INDIAN CHIEF. SHE HAS ALSO BEEN A CONCERT HARPSICHORDIST, AT THE TIME THAT THE MAN WOLFGANG MOZART WAS COMPOSING. SHE HAS BEEN AN ITINERANT MUSICIAN, A POET, A WANDERER, [and] A SCULPTOR IN ANCIENT GREECE. THE LITTLE SAGE _____ HAS BEEN A LAWYER FOUR TIMES, ONCE IN ROME AT THE TIME YOU WERE ALL THERE. SHE HAS BEEN AN ACTRESS AND AN ACTOR ON THE GREEK STAGE. SHE WAS AN ACTRESS IN NORWAY. SHE ALSO HAS BEEN A BISHOP AND A CARDINAL.

Did my father and _____ know each other in previous lifetimes?

THE MAN _____ WAS A CARDINAL, YES, AT THE TIME SHE WAS A BISHOP — CLOSE LINK IN THE HIERARCHY. THEY ONCE TRAVELED OVER FIFTEEN HUNDRED MILES BY CARRIAGE AND HORSEBACK TO ATTEND A VERY IMPORTANT MEETING TOGETHER.

Was there a lifetime when _____ and _____ were together?

THE ONLY TIME THEIR PATHS CROSSED BEFORE WAS IN ATHENS AT THE TIME OF PERICLES.

Was _____ an actress then in Greece?

ACTOR — THERE WERE NO ACTRESSES ON THE GREEK STAGE. THEY WERE BOTH MALE. (Regarding _____:) MANY STATUES THAT SHE CREATED STILL EXIST.

A friend of _____ is being divorced by his wife, who is taking everything, and he is having a hard time. Is he a Mature Artisan in Growth? Is this Role reversal? Has he done this to her in a previous life?

THE ROLES WERE NOT STRICTLY REVERSED, AS THEY WERE NOT MAN AND WIFE; RATHER, CLIENT AND PATRON, BUT YES, THAT IS ESSENTIALLY WHAT OCCURRED.

My friend feels great negativity from his wife. I feel he is in the Repression Mode.

IN THE FIRST PLACE, THE LADY IS NOT FEELING NEGATIVITY, JUST BOREDOM, AND THIS IS PERCEIVED NOT AS A NEGATIVE EMOTION, BUT SIMPLY AS A LACK OF EMOTION, BY HIM. BUT YOU ARE CORRECT IN THAT THIS MAN IS IN THE REPRESSION MODE. WITH HIS OTHER OVERLEAVES, HE COULD UNLEASH GREAT TALENT ON AN UNSUSPECTING WORLD. EXCEPT FOR THE REPRESSION, HE HAS THE IDENTICAL OVERLEAVES OF SOME OF THIS WORLD’S GREAT MUSICIANS. THIS MAN IS A SPIRITUALIST IN THE INTELLECTUAL PART OF EMOTIONAL CENTER, MORE IMPATIENT THAN STUBBORN, BUT THIS IS SELF-DIRECTED, AND THERE IS MUCH FRUSTRATION AT SELF FOR REPRESSING THE DRIVE.
