“Astral City: A Spiritual Journey”

I’ve had requests for the title of the movie, “Astral City”, which I mentioned during a recent retreat/conference at which I attended and spoke.  It chronicles the experiences of Andre Luiz, after his death, and also parallels Echo Bodine’s Out-of-Body experience which she writes of in her book, “Echoes of the Soul”.

The movie is taken from the book of the same name written in 1944 by Francisco Cândido Xavier.  The Wikipedia link:  Astral_City:_A_Spiritual_Journey.  The Youtube preview: Astral City: A Spiritual Journey.

I do recommend watching it.

Alzheimers

There is a spiritual aspect to Alzheimer’s that has rarely, if ever, been mentioned.  While it’s true that Alzheimer’s is a physical deterioration of the brain, there is an underlying spiritual aspect occurring, as well.

The physical brain deterioration occurs slowly over time – mostly years.  This disease is being used by the spirit entity/person/soul to give the spirit entity “time.”  The individual many times has been someone who takes care of others or who has lived a life of being responsible and feeling responsible for the well-being of others.   This “time of the disease’s course” is the soul’s time to continue to fulfill their desire and their “responsibilities” of taking care of others.

However, in the physical world, the reverse “caring” is true, the individual is no longer able to physically take care of themselves and others.  Still, in the spirit world, Alzheimer’s allows the soul to periodically return to the physical world and check up on the other person or persons.

In effect, the soul/entity/spirit/individual comes and goes – both leaving the body and then returning to the body.  This is demonstrated in the physical world by others physically observing that “sometimes they are there and sometimes they aren’t.”  Sometimes, they are lucid or present and in their body, and sometimes they’re not lucid – not present – not in their body.  This is the coming and going of the soul.

When the individual/entity/spirit/soul is “gone” during a particular time frame, there is a wholly less developed cellular consciousness that still exists, because the body still is alive and still has cellular functioning.  Because the brain continues to break down, as the disease progresses, it becomes more and more difficult for the soul entity to return to full presence in the body.

You see, as the brain breaks down, the brain’s capacity to hold electrical energy of the soul diminishes, as well.  This means the soul must leave for greater amounts of time in order to keep the brain from breaking down faster.  The energy of the soul causes wear and tear on the nervous system of the body and the body’s nervous system must recuperate to avoid “burning up.”  This has been the function of sleep (See Sleep, the Body, and Recovery from Illness) allowing the body to recuperate from the higher level energy of the soul.

So, Alzheimer’s is currently being used by souls moving on to the spirit side – the higher vibration levels, but then still returning to the Earth inside the physical body to check up on those they took care of while fully in the Earth.

The question can come up:  Why don’t they just let go and move to the other side?

The answer:  “We can only be the person that we are.” If we held inside ourselves that it was our responsibility to take care of any others, this way of thinking stays with us.  In the time frame that Alzheimer’s manifests, the person is still holding within themselves that they must check in and make sure the others are okay.  For many, it takes some time to let go.

Edgar Cayce also adds that we are called to “Have faith in ourselves.  Have faith in others.  Have faith in God.”  Ultimately, it is God that takes care of all of us, if we can get out of His way and have faith in all.

The Experience of Infinite Consciousness

All life is constantly creating, so that all life can constantly experience all life.  Put another way, the Infinite God, of which we are all “not separated from” parts of God, experiences all that life has to offer, through all the parts of God that God has given consciousness to, (and God has given consciousness to all of life.)

Put another way, there is no thing that is separate from an Infinite everything.  The Full God Consciousness is connected within each unique consciousness that God has given awareness to.  This is not just humans, but all of existence – all of the Infinitely created “Everything”.

Put another way, Infinite Consciousness experiences infinite experiences through all the different parts of Infinite consciousness.

Put another way, God is everything.  Consciousness is everything.  And just because we don’t get it, only means that we haven’t yet experienced Infinite experiences in order to be aware of ourselves as Infinite Consciousness.

All of life – Infinite God Consciousness – is constantly creating, so that all of life – Infinite God Consciousness – can constantly experience all of life – Infinite God Consciousness.

Put another way, we, as part of Infinite God Consciousness, are constantly creating, so that we, as part of Infinite God Consciousness, can constantly experience ourselves as part of Infinite God Consciousness.

Interestingly, all of Infinite God Consciousness is within us, and available to us, all the time, but gaining it all is like the joke – A man asked God, “God, it’s true isn’t it, that to you a million years is like a second, and it’s true that to you a million dollars is like a penny?”  And God replied, “Yes, it’s true.”  And the man said, “Then, I pray to you, give me a penny.”  And God said, “In a second.”

It’s all available, all the time, and to integrate it all, and be aware of it all, we simply use all time.

Needless to say, we still have a ways to go, but we have infinite time – eternity – in which to do it.  For some of us, the hard part is wrapping our minds around what exactly the term “infinite” means.  Once we can do that, we are slightly closer to understanding all that is.

See?  It all makes sense, now, right?

So, you can understand now, how Infinite Creativity creates Infinitely.  And Infinite Consciousness experiences this infinite creativity.

Because of this, every experience that you and I create for ourselves and others is experienced by the Infinite Consciousness – by all life – in some form or way.  No experience we create for ourselves or another is limited to only ourselves or that other person.

Since we are part of the Infinite, the experiences we create are experienced by the Infinite – by all of life – on this planet, solar system, galaxy and universe, including other planes of existence, other universes, and other dimensions.

In other words, all of life, of which we are a part, experiences all of life, of which we are a part, and we experience all of life because of this.

See?

Freewill vs. Predestination

“…then everything in life is predestined, is this true?” Z.

No.

God gave everyone freewill and this means we can choose, and then change our minds, at any time. No one can take away what God has given us.

A basic simple beginning of understanding prediction can be as follows:

Prediction can  be like having the ability to see that A leads to B, which leads to C, which leads to D, which leads to E, which leads to F, which leads to G, which leads to H, which leads to I, which leads to J, etc., etc.  For example, I can predict that Spring will come after Winter, because that’s our planetary design.

Prediction with individuals comes from the ability to see that if a person went to work 5 days a week for many years, then they are on the path to go to work again.  However, it is still a person’s freewill to quit their job today, and do something else.  Each individual has millions of patterns like this.

Prediction also comes from seeing that if a person is going down a path, and they make certain choices, then certain factors will come into play depending on the decision they make.  For example, if a person chooses to go to college, certain factors and life situations will come into this person’s life.  If they choose not to go to college, different life situations will come into this person’s life.

Prediction also comes from seeing that if we’re going down a certain road of life, to reach a destination in life, and there are warnings on that road of life, saying something like, “Bridge Out Ahead”, and the warnings are ignored because they’re not believed or not understood, certain things (sometimes harmful things) will happen because the road taken has not been changed.  Choosing to smoke cigarettes is an example of the last statement.

Predestination can be a part of life, but only in presenting choices for a person to decide – to act respectfully or disrespectfully, to forgive or not forgive, to be patient or to be impatient, to judge and criticize others, or to be kind and understanding, to cooperate with others or to fight against others, to make someone else’s or one’s own life heaven or to make someone else’s or one’s own life hell, to be selfish or to be unselfish, to choose life or to choose death.  Life situations happen, circumstances happen, but how we respond to them comes from our own freewill.

See, we make decisions everyday and these decisions lead us down different paths.  Interestingly, we’ve made decisions 10,000 years ago that are affecting our life, today.  We’re making decisions today that will affect our life 10,000 years in the future.

August, 2015: The 2nd of 3 World Events

As of December 27, 2014, the password is no longer needed.  The article this refers to is now open to public viewing.

At this point in time, I’m keeping what I see pertaining to the August, 2015 event on a private blog protected by a password.  If you’d like the blog password, place a request comment following this short article, and I will send the password that allows you to read what I have.  I will send it to the email address that accompanies the comment.  I’m not posting it yet, because I am not feeling ready to make it all public.  Currently, I think it would generate more conflict than generate prayers.  If I get inundated with requests, it may take some time to  get it back to you.

Added Dec. 1, 2014
On Dec. 25th, I will open the password protected article to the public.  No one will need a password to read what I’ve posted in that article, then.  I’m doing this for the help it could bring.

Autumn Weather

My apologies to gardeners and folks across the country in case my predictions of a milder winter caused problems with their plants or anything else.  My predictions for the Winter of 2015 were only for the Winter months of Dec. – Feb.  I did not even think to examine November and did not see the current cold spells spreading across the Midwest and East.  I didn’t look at the Fall of 2014.

One of the idiosyncrasies of psychic readings, for me, is that many times, I see only what I look at.

So, in general for the nation, with the cold Arctic spells in November, I’m seeing continued intermittent cold temperatures up to around mid-December to the 2nd week in January, depending on the regions.  This is what the meteorologists are saying, also.

The milder winter I’m seeing, in general, I see happening after the new year comes in.  I’m defining “milder” as being way warmer than the 2014 Winter with much less storms.

As of right now, I’m seeing the Winter of 2016 (Dec, 2015 to Feb, 2016), as being slightly harder/colder than 2015, but still milder than 2014.  I consider the Winter weather we’ll see in the Winter of 2016 as being the “new normal”.  Then the Winter of 2017 (Dec, 2016 to Feb, 2017,) will be almost as bad as 2014.

So, of the next 3 winters, this one will be the mildest – for the most part, beginning after the new year.

Right or Wrong?

There is only one life we live on this Earth, God gave us one life to live for his Glory. Heaven and Hell are real places and the place one goes to depends weather the choice is made to accept Jesus Christ as a Savior for the sins we made..This is the truth and whoever reads this, please, invite Jesus into your hearts, repent from your sins, this is the only way to go to heaven. It is heartbreaking to see how many people are confused and lied to by Satan that there are many lives to live..nowhere in a Bible does it state that and there are few clear statements that we live ONLY ONE life. Please Jodie, I am praying for you and all people out there in the name of Jesus Christ to flee from these “many lives we live” deceiving theories. In Jesus Almighty name! A

Christ never condemned anyone for having different beliefs – not the Samaritans, not the Gentiles, and not the Romans, and they all had different beliefs. He condemned those who are hypocritical – acting differently than the beliefs they espouse.  This is what we need to watch for within ourselves and our actions.

Christ’s message was to all people and His commandments were – Love God above all else, and Love your neighbor as yourself.

With 7 billion going on 8 billion people on the planet, there are also 7 billion going on 8 billion unique and different belief systems. No two of us believe exactly 100% alike. Everyone of us has our own spin on our beliefs and rightly so – because there are no two of us exactly 100% alike, no matter how close we are.

For me, having studied the Bible, also, including the Gospels, I find Christ’s message not the message of separation based on different beliefs. I find Christ’s message of Love to include this: The most important part of beliefs is not what we believe, but what our beliefs motivate us to do in how we relate to other people. Do our beliefs move us to criticize and condemn others, or do our beliefs create room in this world for differences of all kinds? Do our beliefs motivate us to bring people together on common ground, or do our beliefs move us to separate out those who are different and judge them for their differences? Do our beliefs move us to strike out at others out of judgement of these differences or do our beliefs help us to embrace even others who are completely different? Do our beliefs move us to tell others “I’m right and your wrong,” or do they move us to look for the unique aspects that everyone has within them, in order to contribute to the whole of mankind?

All religions have followers who use their religious beliefs to justify prejudice, fear, condemnation, criticism, hatred, killing, war and the like. But, all religions also have followers who use their religious beliefs to strengthen their love for one another, their effort at cooperation, their striving to be kind, compassionate and understanding, and their desire to have love be at the center of their relationships and connections with every other soul.

In our world today, we see so many espouse togetherness, but with the caveat that the togetherness has to be according to “how I, and not you, see the world” rather than “let’s find common ground and work from there.” We see many people all over the globe that are ready for any others to convert and be like them. But, what Christ lived and demonstrated was that God’s Infinite Mind and Heart has room (many mansions) for all souls who seek to love. Christ teaches even today that with God, all things are possible, including all the different ways of believing.  Yet, with God and Love being One, this possibility of all things – the inclusion of the different ways of believing – can only be done when Love is present. With God/Love, all things, including living and cooperating in a world holding different beliefs, are possible.

Christ teaches that if we ask for the Truth, God will answer our request without tricks or deception. Christ also teaches that we can have a direct connection to God, and do not need to take on any other person’s beliefs through another person’s mind and understanding – we can build our own beliefs.

Finally, many of us have studied and read the Bible and have found reincarnation all over the place in it. However, it is absolutely and equally true that one does not need to believe in reincarnation to follow Christ, especially when Christ main message is “Love God above all else, and Love your neighbor as yourself.” To follow Christ one needs to live this love, practicing it even with those that believe differently.

There can be room for differences of beliefs, but only when one is willing to allow room for differences.  The more open and willing we are, the more God can come in.  This is what I believe and this is what I will work at living at, in order to make this alive inside of me, and to make it real in the world, one day at a time, with God’s help.

God Bless Us,

Everyone.

PS.  None of us can say we know all there is to know about God, Christ, Life and Death, Heaven and Hell.  None of us can say we know all there is to know about the Truth.  Not if we’re being truthful.  We do the best we can at understanding all the above and determine our beliefs from what we can understand.  This is why so many of us have different beliefs, because we have different experiences, levels, and ways of understanding.

When we say “Only this is true or only that is true” then we have stopped our learning and closed ourselves down to more of what God would teach us.  When we allow ourselves to entertain different ideas and different ways of thinking, considering how they could fit with our current understanding, then God will find a way to help us learn more about all the above, which includes our relationship to Christ, our relationship to God, and our relationships with each other.
