That last post I wrote (or half-wrote; I had help) seems to have caused more than a little brain-ache for many of the brave souls who battled their way through to the end. I’m not at all surprised, given that I’d been struggling with the ideas contained in it for some years beforehand.
That’s why I decided to see if I could make the main idea raised in it slightly clearer.
Putting aside for now the weird and unusual way that I am able to communicate telepathically with a friend in London, without his conscious knowledge, we are left with the information this higher dimensional aspect of him is able to share.
Will has autistic spectrum perception. His diagnoses have included semantic-pragmatic disorder and Aspergers. Diagnoses don’t interest me in the least, but I’m fascinated by the difference in the way people with ASP (P not D, as I see it as a different form of Perception, not a Disorder) access knowledge from the Cosmos/ Universal Spirit/ God Self – or whatever you prefer to call it .
In our metaphysical ramblings, Will has explained it to me this way: All of us have higher aspects of ourselves, sometimes called subtle bodies. In most neuro-typical people, our links to these dimensions are via the etheric body – an energy field that is measurable and even visible to some. It acts, he tells me, the way the sat-nav in your car does – picking up messages from ‘above’ to guide us through our daily lives.
For individuals with ASP, the connection is different.
‘THE CONNECTIONS BETWEEN THE BODIES GO FAR DEEPER BUT CAN PULL APART,’ he explains, with typical understatement. There, in a nutshell, we have the apparently positive and negative aspects of the autistic state – an ability to tap directly into higher dimensions of the Self and an equal ability to disconnect from aspects of themselves which can leave carers and friends baffled and concerned.
While he was in his teens, Will and I spent many happy hours together, discussing the kind of issues we now chat about via my pendulum. Many aspects of his knowledge amazed me, especially when he explained subjects I was reading about in information channelled from higher dimensional beings – the Seth Material and Conversations with God, for example.
He also confided that at times he found himself experiencing parallel lives – ones in which he and some other parts of his experience were the same, but subtle or sometimes greater differences were evident. As this was involuntary, the poor lad became intensely anxious and nervous, stuck as he was in an Alice in Wonderland world where nothing could be relied on to stay the same. I wonder if Lewis Carroll had similar experiences…
These ‘other lives’ have troubled and fascinated me ever since. The closest I came to a rational explanation was a passage in Conversations with God, in which physical life is compared to a CD rom, containing every possible outcome for every possible choice we make.
Let’s assume for a moment that this cosmic CD exists (akashic records, perhaps?) in some realm beyond space and time. While we are in our skin-suits – being human beings – we normally select one ‘track’ from the CD rom at a time. As Will pointed out in my previous post, each time we make a choice, our personal time line changes. We jump to a new track. It was this aspect of infinite pre-destiny/choice that prompted me to use the analogy of a video game in my book LIFE: A Player’s Guide.
So not only do I have ‘past’ and ‘future’ lives (the quotation marks are there to remind me that time only exists as an aid to sequential cause and effect in our 3D existence) but each of my lives – including the present incarnation – has an infinite range of options. That’s where the Law of Attraction fits in, I suppose. We can select which of the myriad lives we wish to put our consciousness into – miracles included.
The next part of Will’s master-class explained how the personality or essence of oneself permeates each of those lives and – this is huge – how what we do in one life has an effect on every other life: past, future, probable or possible. That, though, will have to wait for another post.
