The Time Sense Outside The Body Can Be Quite Different Than The Body’s

My wife and I are telepathically aware of our emotional presence. This acts as the emotional impetus to give the inner self full rein.

o6

In the same way do we travel in other realities without being aware of it. We perceive in a ‘normal’ fashion, which shows that perception is not dependent upon the physical image. We have both traveled together in such a fashion from the dream state. There is no reason why we cannot try such experiments, trying to project at the same time.

o5

When we do this from a dream state, then we must set aside two and one half hours, for the first portion will be used as preliminaries. We can also give ourselves such suggestions before we sleep. We might begin by making an appointment to meet each other, say, at three in the morning in the living room.

o14

For our own purposes, an unfinished painting on our easel helped project to the studio, for we would wish to study it. We have often done this, without remembering. It is always to our advantage when we both traveled together, however. We help each other retain proper consciousness and purpose during projection.

o19

We can be of greater help to each other, when we develop further. We can also suggest dreams in which we are flying in an airplane and tell ourselves then that we will waken from the dream and project. We will know the plane to be a dream image, but be able to retain it for our convenience if we want, so that we do not feel falling at first.

o7

In such instances, we are withdrawing our perceptive abilities from the physical body. They will seem to operate as usual, but they are more vivid and far-reaching. Our thoughts instantly attain a form that we can then perceive. If we think of a dog, for example, quite unconsciously we form the image of a dog, which we then perceive.

o9

It is because of this instantaneous creation and projection of inner reality outward into form that we experience time within the physical system — to train us, to give us time to learn to handle our own creations. Projection experiments, then, should only be tried when we are in a peaceful state of mind.

o2

Now, there are ‘objective’ realities that exist within the astral system. There are more than our own thought forms, in other words. Our own thought-forms can be definite aids when we are in the proper mental condition, and they can impede our progress if we are not. For example, a man or woman in a desperate frame of mind is more apt to emphasize the unpleasant aspects of the news and to see bitterness rather than the joy in the faces of those we meets. He or she will ignore a contented child playing on one side of the street and notice, instead, a dirty ragged child, even though he or she be further away. So our frame of mind when projecting will largely determine the kind of experiences we have.

o0

The original intensity behind the construction determines its duration. Left alone, any such construction will eventually vanish. It will leave a trace, however, in electromagnetic reality where it can then be activated by anyone when certain conditions are met or are favorable.

t31

Denying energy to such a construction can be like pricking a balloon. Then all attention must be taken from it, for it thrives upon attention.

Chemical Changes Before Mental Projections Can Occur

Certain chemical changes must come about in the physical organism before projection can occur. Were it not for these, we would still be imprisoned within the corporal image. We know that dreaming has a definite chemical basis, that chemicals built up during periods of waking experience are released through dreams. Not only are these released, but they form a propelling action that allows energy to flow in the opposite direction. As chemical reactions allow the body to utilize energy and form physical materializations, so the excess built up becomes, then, a propelling force, allowing action to flow in what we would call subjective directions.

h6

This same chemical reaction must also occur, only more strongly, before a legitimate projection can occur. This is one of the main reasons why deliberate projections are not more numerous. Usually the chemical access is used in normal dreaming. In periods of exuberant energy and well being, a more than normal excess accumulates. this can trigger a projection. In periods of momentary indisposition, however, the dreaming process may be blocked and the chemical excess accumulated. Again, a good time to try projection.

h5

These chemical excesses are a natural byproduct of consciousness that is bound up in physical materialization. The more intense the characteristic experience of reality, the greater the chemical excess that is built up. consciousness itself, when physically oriented, burns up the chemicals. The more intense the individual, the hotter the fire, so to speak, and the greater the chemical excesses released.

h4

Released they must be, or the organism would not survive. Periods of intense activity may also generate this additional chemical propellant. Although this is generated through activity, it is released, making projections possible, in alternating periods of quietude and rest. There must be a disciplined focus, therefore, of this propellant. Periods of heightened sexual activity of a strong and deep nature will help. Periods of no sexual activity will also help,however. On the one hand, the chemical excess is built up as a result of great intensity, and in the latter case it is built up because psychic and sexual release has not been granted.

t8

Eggs and asparagus are helpful as far as diet is concerned. I am obviously not suggesting a whole diet of eggs and asparagus. these plus fish oils are beneficial, however, but not when taken with acid foods.

h39

I still suggest a more thorough examination of your  dreams for many of them contain spontaneous projections. They are most apt to occur in the early hours, between 3:00 and 5:00 A.M. The body temperature drops at such times. Five in the afternoon is also beneficial from this standpoint. The drinking of pure water also facilitates projection, although for obvious reasons, the bladder should be empty. The north-south position is extremely important, and indeed, is a necessity for any efficient dream recall. Energy is most easily utilized in this position for one thing, and this cuts unnecessary restrictions to a minimum.

h21

There is a vast difference between ordinary dreams and projections, whether or not the projections occurs from the dream threshold. Dreams are constructed and sent upon their way. As we know, they maintain an independence within their own dimension.

h16

Projections involve many more aspects of the whole self and are a mark that the personality is progressing in important ways. The inner senses are allowed their greatest freedom in projection states, and the self retains experience that it would not otherwise. When this knowledge becomes apart of the ordinary waking consciousness, then we have taken a gigantic step forward.

h44

An almost automatic determination must be established, however, if conscious projections are to be anything but rare oddities. With me, the problem is somewhat different than it might be with some others. These chemical excesses are used up, for one thing, in my own creative work. I do this automatically. It goes without saying that our own work will gain immeasurably through the extended experience of projection. Yoga exercises allow us to draw an abundance — indeed, a super-abundance — of energy. This energy results, also, in chemical excesses that can be utilized in projections, without drawing energy away from our other work.

h23

The expectation and knowledge that we are a part of all energy will allow us to realize that all the energy we require will be given. Our attitude toward what is possible determines what is possible for us in very definite terms.

h51

Now, there are also electromagnetic changes during projections that can be perceived with instruments. Certain electrical fields will make themselves known under these conditions. The fields have always existed, but they will become apparent to physical instruments only when they are being crossed — in other words, at the very act of projection.

h64

Other hints: A cool body temperature but with room temperature between 73.8 and 75.9. High humidity is poor. The color of a room is important. Cool colors are best. Too warm colors are detrimental, being too closely allied with earthly conditions. In our climate, October, February and March are best. August can be beneficial, according to the weather. Too warm weather is detrimental.

h59

Projections actually involve a change of atomic structure. Consciousness simply changes its form. When projection is first accomplished, there is a strong charge of adrenaline in the body and high activity of the thyroid gland. There is a charge of sexual hormones which are also utilized in projection.

h41

After projection is accomplished, however, there is a marked decline in chemical activity and hormone action, a drop in body temperature and a drop in blood pressure. The rapid eye movements noted by dream investigators cease entirely. The eye muscles are not used. The normal muscular activity that usually occurs in sleep vanishes. The physical body is in a deep trance state. The trance may be masked by sleep, if the projection happens from a dream threshold.

h28

According to the intensity of the projection and to the systems visited, the body may become more or less rigid when consciousness returns to it. This is simply a reaction to the returning consciousness. There is a subtle difference in the way sugar molecules are utilized. Momentarily, the body uses less sugar. However, the sugar is important in fueling the consciousness on its journey. It also aids in connecting the consciousness to the body.

h31

In other words, there is indeed a connection that is and must be partially physical, between the body and the traveling consciousness, and it is based upon a certain sugar molecule in a form not normally seen. Before conscious projections I would therefore recommend that you take a small amount of starchy or sugar food. A small snack before bed is a good idea from this viewpoint. Alcohol is of some benefit, though not to any great degree. Excellent result can be achieved in a dream-based projection during the day in a nap.

Awake-Seeming Dreams

There  are some notes I wanted to give concerning dreams in which you feel certain you are normally awake. When these dreams are unusually vivid, then the ego is aware and participating, but generally it is not using its critical faculties. As you know, you can become critically alert, but when you do so, you realize that you are not in your normal waking condition.

f19

In awake-seeming dreams you are indeed awake, but within a different psychological framework, indeed, within a different framework of reality. You are operating at a high level of awareness, and using the inner senses. These enable you to perceive an added depth of dimension which is responsible for the vividness and sense of exhilaration that often occurs within the kind of dream. The next step, or course, is to allow the ego to awaken its critical faculties while within this state. You are then able to realize that while you are indeed awake as you seem, you are awake while the body is asleep.

f18

When this occurs, you will be able to use your normal abilities in addition to those of the dream condition. You will be certain of your identity, realize that the physical self is sleeping or in dream state and that the inner self is fully awake. This represents a definite increase in the scope of consciousness and a considerable expansion over the usual limitations set by you upon yourself.

f25

Only then can you fully begin to manipulate the conditions that exit and communicate this knowledge that you receive to the ego. For the time, you see, the ego becomes a direct participator in such experience, at least to a degree.

f37

Almost all of your dream experiences do involve projections of one kind or another. These vary in intensity, type and even duration as any other experience vary. It takes a good deal of training and competence to operate with any real effectiveness within these situations.

f32

All in all, the intellect plays some part, but the institutional qualities are most important. There are chemical changes, also, that occur with the physical body when projections happen, and electromagnetic variations. These vary according to the form in which the projection occurs.

f36

The projected form does make some impression upon the physical system. It is possible for it to be detected. It is a kind of pseudo-image, materialistically speaking, but it has definite electromagnetic reality and chemical properties. Animals have sensed such apparitions. They react to the chemical properties and build up to the perception of the image from these.

f22

These chemical properties are more diffused in such an apparition than in a physical form, however. The chemical composition of a storm, perhaps, will give you an idea of what I mean. They cause small disturbances in the physical system. As a rule, they are not solid, in the same way that clouds are not solid, and yet they have shape and to certain extent boundaries and movement. They definitely have a reality, though you cannot usually perceive it with the physical senses.

f33

Perhaps this diffused quality is the most important difference (from your point of view) between an apparition and a physical form. There is an atomic structure, but in some ways it is less complete than the physical one. There is always a minute difference in the body’s weight when the individual is projecting.

f39

False Awakening or Awake-Seeming Dreams: Now I had a false awakening. In the back of my mind all night was the resolution to make sure I recorded my dreams. Here, I was sure I was awake. I wrote the dreams down in my notebook which was on the bedside table, and then, to make sure, I awakened my wife and told her the dreams also. She pointed out the the first dream and one of the others were definitely related. Again, I was positive I was awake.

f11

Then the suspicion struck me that perhaps this was an awake-seeming dream, that I was still dreaming and that none of the dreams had been written down at all. I kept struggling to analyze my state of consciousness and finally decided to check the notebook again

f6

I highly recommend this most advantageous method of projection to my readers. When you awaken — or seem to waken — in the middle of the night, try to get out of the body. Simply try to get out of bed without moving the body and go into another room.

f12

This is a pleasant and easy method. With some experience you will discover that you can maintain control, walk out of the apartment and outside. You may then attempt normal locomotion or levitate. there is little strain with this method. Keep it in mind so that you are alert to the initial favorable circumstances. You may be half awake. You may be in a false awakening. The method will work in either case. You can, if you want to, look back at your body.

b17

You must want to do this, however. Often, you do not want to see the body by itself, so to speak, and so choose methods that make this more difficult. Just this one exercise will sharpen your control greatly. It is an ABC. This experience is also less startling to the ego than a more abrupt projection, and the ordinary nature of the activities — walking into the next room, for example — will be reassuring. You are more calm in your own surroundings.

b58

Now it is possible for someone within the body to perceive someone who is not, but is not usual. The perceiver must be a person of strong psychic abilities or the projecting personality must be driven by high emotional intensity to make himself or herself known.

b86

 

The trick of staying between hallucinations and physical reality tell far more about how consciousness works.

s56

It is far more difficult to get objective proof for dream projections, yet the subjective proof is quite definite. The task of trying to maintain specific states of consciousness is enough work and effort to convince anyone having the experience that far more than simple dreaming or imagination is involved.

 

 

 

Dream Bodies

For all practical purposes, of course, we will usually find ourselves in some sort of body form in our out-of-body experiences. There are a necessary camouflage, for we cannot yet think of identity without some kind of body, so we project in such a form. It varies according to our abilities, and without it, we would feel lost indeed. The form itself is not important, but it can tell us something about the dimension in which we are having the experience.

b30

The dream body is the one with which we are most familiar. It has been called the astral body. It strikes us as being physical when we are in it, but we can do things with it that can’t be done ordinarily. We can levitate, for example. As a rule, however, we do not go through walls with this body. This is the body we use for ordinary dreams. Levitation is possible with it but on a limited basis.

b2

When we enter a different dimension, the abilities of the body form change, and for all intents and purposes, it is a different body form — which we will now call a mind form. It still seems physical in shape, but we can walk through physical matter with it. We can levitate much more freely, traveling within the solar system. But we cannot go further with it.

b38

In the first form, it is possible to perceive the past, present or future on a limited basis. In the second form, this perception is increased, the scope of consciousness widened. This is the form we will use if we meet by appointment with others in the dream state.

b12

The third we may call the true projection form. In it, it is possible to travel beyond our solar system, and to perceive the past,present and futures of other solar systems as well as our own. The various forms that we use do not dictate our experience, however. We may begin in one form and change to another — or go from the first to the third. On such occasions we must pass through in reverse direction [on returning]. The forms merely represent stages of consciousness.

b5

At physical death, after the last reincarnation, then the normal form is the dream body, and excursions are made from this point. It is possible, as mentioned, to suddenly switch from the third form to the dream body, but with a considerable jolt to consciousness.

b1

There are, indeed, others who can help us in such experiences, and they can be of great assistance as guides. We will find projections much easier if our head is to the north.

b19

Now, when we project from the dream body, consciously we are already outside of the physical one. We have already made the initial change away from physical focus. The mass of valid projections are made from the dreaming body. When the excursion is over, the return to the dream body is made with no strain, for the ego is little concerned. In many such cases, however, the knowledge is not available to the waking self.

b6

As we become more accustomed to the experience, the waking self will recall more and more and not become frightened. When we panic, from the waking condition, the experience ends. If the waking self had not been taken along in this particular manner, the journey could have continued.

b34

Very rarely do we go wide-awake, speeding out of our body like a rocket. Dream projections are quite different, in any case, and the ego is already protected.

b3

I want to give some idea of the conditions we may expect to meet in any successful projections, so that you will be prepared to some extent. For simplicity’s sake, we will call the body forms discussed, forms one, two and three.

b47

Form one will spring out of an ordinary dream state. In spontaneous projections, you may become conscious in form one, project, return to the ordinary dream state and from there project again several times. You can expect these particular projections to be difficult to interpret now, though you may find the experience intact in the middle of any given dream record.

b37

Our excursions with form one will be within our own system, largely connected to the earth, although past, present and future may be involved. We may, for example, visit New York in the year 2020.

b79

The projections here are fairly short in duration, though exceptionally clear. You may encounter phantoms from your own subconscious, however, and they will seem exceedingly real. If you realize that you are projecting, you may simply order any unpleasant phantoms to disappear, and they will do so. You may banish a nightmare also, if you realize that it is a product of your own subconscious. If you treat it as a reality, however, then you must deal with it as such until you realize its origin or return to the ordinary dream state.

b75

In form two you will not, as a rule, encounter any subconscious phantoms. Ordinary dream elements will not be as frequent, nor will they intrude as much. A longer duration of projection is possible. The vividness is extraordinary. Here you will begin to perceive quite clearly constructions that are not your own, where earlier these are but dimly glimpsed. A certain period of orientation will be necessary, simply because these other constructions may seem bewildering. Some will exist in you future. Some may have existed in your past, and some were thought of, but never materialized.

b89

But the reality of all of these constructions will be equally vivid, you see, for they are, indeed, equally real. I will give you a simple example. You may find yourself in a room with certain people. Later, upon awakening, you realize that both the people and setting belong to a particular sequence in a novel. You think then: ‘This was no projection, then, but only a dream.’

b4

It may, however, be a valid projection. The room and people exist but not in a way you endorse as reality. They exist in another dimension, but as a rule you cannot perceive it. Paintings that you will paint. It is possible for you to project yourself into one of your own future landscapes. This would not be an imaginative projection. This is what I am trying to tell you.

b73

You may find yourself, for example, in the middle of a battle that was once planned in some general’s mind, a battle that never materialized in physical reality. In such a case, incidentally, you were not a part of the battle and could not be harmed. However, you might be attracted enough to project yourself spontaneously into the body of one of the soldiers, in which case you could experience pain until your own fear pulled you back. As you learn control, such mistakes vanish.

b96

There are various situations you must learn to handle, attractions and repulsions which could pull you willy-nilly in any direction. Experience will teach you how to handle these. What is needed is a steady maintenance of identity under conditions which will be new as far as your conscious awareness is concerned. I cannot emphasize too strongly that projections into other dimensions do occur. Many such instances are often considered chaotic dreams because there is no way to check the against physical events since they did not occur in physical terms.

b95

It is possible for you to project to a future event in which you will be involved and by an act that you make in the projection, alter the course that this future will take. Such an action would therefore appear to happen twice, once in your present and once in your future. But in the future, you would be the one whose course is altered from this traveling self from the past.

b113

Let us take an example: While asleep, you project into 2020. There you see yourself considering various courses of action. For a moment you are aware of a sense of duality as you view this older self. You communicate with this other self; and we will go into this sort of thing more deeply in another blog. In any case, your future self heeds what you say. Now in the actual future you are the self who hears the voice of a past self, perhaps in a dream, of perhaps in a projection into the past.

b213f

Remember I listed briefly the three forms used during projections.In the first form, we usually use certain inner senses. In the second form, we use more of these, and in the third form, we attempt to use all of them, though very rarely is this successful. We should notice the overall form of perception that we seem to be using. We automatically shield ourselves from stimuli that are too strong for our own rate of development. This kind of balancing can lead to an unevenness of experience, however, in any given projection.

b97

As we know, it is almost impossible for us to be aware of the full perception possible, for the ego would not stand for it. Often, even in simple dreams, however, we will feel concepts or understand a particular piece of information without a word being spoken. In some projections, we will also experience a concept, and, at first, we may not understand what is happening. In these, we experience as actual the innermost reality of a given concept.

b20

In a dream recorded before this blog, I was in the third form, and I did not project beyond our solar system. This was still a projection within the physical universe, however. I was given information that I did not remember. When we explore the inside of a concept, we act it out. We form a temporary but very vivid image production. If my experience had been only this, it still would have been pertinent, for when we understand a concept in such a way the knowledge is never forgotten. It becomes part of our physical cells and our electromagnetic structure.

b43

I want to be clearer, however. Suppose that we suddenly understand the concept of oneness with the universe, and that this inner sensing of concepts is to be used. We would then construct dream images, a multitudinous variety of shapes and forms meant to represent the complicated forms of life. We would then have the experience of entering each of those lives. We would not think of what it was like to be a bird. We would momentarily be one. This does involve a projection of sorts, yet still must be called by contrast a pseudo-projection. A normal projection would involve one of the three body forms.

b112

Some experiences, then, will be simple attempts to use the inner senses more fully. They may appear to be projections, and as we go along, I will tell how to distinguish between them.

b31

We will be able to look back and see our physical body upon the bed on some occasions, and in other cases we will not be able to do this. In the first body form, for example, we can look back and see the physical body. If we project from this form into the next, in order to intensify the experience, then from this second form we will not see the physical one. We will be aware of it, and we may experience some duality. In the third form, we will no longer be aware of the physical body, and we will not see it.

b98

In the third form, our experience will be most vivid. They may involve us in other systems beside our own, and we will have little contact with the physical environment. For this reason, projections in the third form are the most difficult to maintain. There are dangers that do not exist when the other two forms are used.

b85

Using the third form, there could be a tendency for us not to recognize our own physical situation. It would be difficult to carry the memories of the present ego personality with us. This third form is the vehicle of the inner self. The disorientation that it feels is the same that it will feel when the physical body is deserted at the point of death. This disorientation if only temporary, and when at death the form is severed from the physical body, then all the memories and identity within the electromagnetic structure become part of the inner self. This form is sometimes used for purposes of instruction, however, or to acquaint the whole personality with the circumstances that strongly affect it.

b39

 

Most of our projection will be in the first and second form, in any case. Usually we will project from the physical body into the first form and then, perhaps, into the second.

Occasionally, this will happen and we will not know it, despite all our attempts to ascertain our circumstances.

b93

There are ways of knowing when we switch forms, of course, and we shall see that information in future blogs. You should have several projections within the first and second forms in the following months if your development continues.

b71

 

I want to mention in future blogs, the difference in experience and sensation between projections from a dream state and those from the trance state and also what is called awake-seeming dreams, for there are many things here that you do not know, and they are fairly important.

b29

A curious new second life began, adjacent to our normal one. Some may call it a fantasy life, but surely it is no more fantastic or mysterious than the ordinary world in which we all find ourselves.

 

 

Multi-Dimensional Personality and Probable Selves

The ego structure remains, of course. The responsibility of dealing with physical reality remains, but in some respects the nature of this manipulation changes. It becomes more direct. Physical properties are manipulated more and more at a mental level. The ego becomes more like the inner ego and less like its old self, comparatively speaking. It accepts large portions of reality that it previously denied. Structurally, it remains intact, yet it has changed chemically and electromagnetically. Now it is far more open to inner data. Once this freedom is achieved, the ego can never return to its old state.

e12

The ego is self-conscious action that attempts to set itself apart from action  and to consider action as an object. Now this altered ego retains its highly specialized self-consciousness, and yet it can now experience itself as an identity within and as a part of action.

This is a cornerstone for consciousness and for personality. It is only a first step, however. Without it, no further development of consciousness can occur. It is not attained by all within our system. We are at that point now.

e3

The next step so taken when identity is able to include within itself the intimate knowledge of all incarnations. Yet in this state, the independence of the various reincarnated selves is not diminished. Each of these steps of consciousness involve identity with their recognition of its unity with All That Is.

e22

As each separate identity then seeks to know and experience its other portions, then All That Is learns Who and What it Is. Action never ceases its exploration of itself. All That Is can never know itself completely, since action must travel through itself from every conceivable point, and yet the journey, being itself action, will create new paths.

e4

There are many You’s in the probable systems, and each You is related psychologically in a personality structure. The You that you know is a part of this. In our system, all other You’s seem to exist in a probable reality.

e21

To any of them, the others would seem to exist in a probable universe, yet all are connected. All of us did not have the same parents, for example, and there are portions of probable situations existing in our own parents separate lives. In two probable realities our mothers did not have children. We do not exist in these. In some, she married but not the man we know as father. A psychological connection exists between that first son or daughter in that other system and yourself.

e8

Emotional charged feeling immediately sets up what we may think of as tangent. It is expressed in some reality system. This is the inner nature of action. Those thoughts and desires and impulses not made physically real in our terms will be made real in other systems.

e6

Now, the inner self is psychologically influenced by these probable personalities, for they represent a whole personality structure or gestalt with which we are utterly unfamiliar. Our psychologists are dealing with a one-dimensional psychology, at their best.

e7

In the dream state, the portions of the large ‘structure’ sometimes communicate in highly codified symbols. It would be highly improbable that we could decipher many of these now. There is a feedback system that operates, and yet we must understand that these other identities are fully independent and individual. They exist in codified psychological structures within our personality, as we do in theirs.

e19

They remain latent within us, and unexpressed in our system. We have their abilities, unused. We remain latent in their personality structures, and our main abilities are unused within their systems. Yet each of us is a part of oneself in a multidimensional psychological structure.

e25

These do not necessarily represent more evolved selves. Certain abilities will be more developed in them than in us, and vise versa. I am not speaking of portions of our self that exist in the ‘future.’ Each probable self, has ‘future’ selves.

e15

This multi-dimensional personality or identity is the psychological structure with which we will be concerned in many blogs. The terms includes probable selves, reincarnated selves and selves more developed than the self that we know. These make up the basic identity of the whole self. All portions are independent.

 

 

 

Children Trying Out Dreams

Children actually try out in dreams the various courses open the them.

a4

We may act out many probabilities within dream reality and try out alternatives, and not necessarily short-term ones. We would have made an excellent doctor, for example. In our terms, we worked out this possibility by weaving, over a period of three years, a dream framework in which we learned exactly what our life would have been, had we gone into medicine.

a3

This was more than imaginative. We examined one probability and chose another. The individual, then, chooses which probabilities he or she desires to actualize physically. In one such episode, for example, we followed our present course through; therefore, we are subconsciously aware of our own ‘future’ — since we chose it. There are always new choices, however. We foresee the future of possibilities within the main choice system.

a16

In our present life, the same process continues. Most of these dreams are very disconnected from the ego and will not be recalled. The self who pursues these divergent paths is actual, however. The doctor we might have been once dreamed of a probable universe in which he or she would be an artist. He or she continues to work out his or her own probabilities. He of she exists in fact. We call his or her system an alternate system of probability, but this is precisely what he or she would call ours.

a2

Now we will have some experiences that are shared in the dream state. They will be involved with episodes familiar to us both before we went our separate ways. We are like two limbs from the same tree. We recognize the same mother.

a26

The dreams we will have and have had in shared experience are root dreams. They serve as a method of maintaining inner identity and communication. Projections can also occur from these — that is, we may, for example, project into the life of the doctor.

a25

Reincarnation is but a part of this probability system, the part that falls within our particular universe. There are also root dreams shared by the race as a whole. Most of these are not as symbolic as Jung thought them to be but are literal interpretations of the abilities used by the inner self. For that matter, as we know, flying dreams need not be symbolic of anything. They can be valid experiences, though often intermixed with other dream elements. Falling dreams are also simple experience in many instances, representing downward motion, or a loss of form-control during projection

Dream Selves and Probable Selves

The dreaming self has its own memories. It has memory of all dream experience. To us, this might mean that it has memory of its past, and indeed, to us, memory itself is dependent upon a past or the term seems meaningless. To the dreaming self, however, past, present and future do not exist. How can it be said to have memory?

All experience is basically simultaneous. The dreaming self is aware of its experience in its entirety. We obviously, are not. We are hardly familiar with our dream experience and barely aware of its significance.

The dreaming self is to some considerable degree aware of the probable self. There is give-and-take between the two, for much data is received by the dreaming self from the probable self– the self that experiences what the ego would call probable events.

s4

This data is often wound by the dream self into a dream drama which informs the subconscious of dangers or of probable success of any given event which is being considered by the subconscious for physical actuality. Were it not for the experience of this probable self, and for its information given via the dreaming self to the subconscious, then it would be most difficult for the ego to come to any clear decisions in daily life. The ego does not realize the data that is being constantly fed into it. It cannot afford to, generally, since it’s focused energy must be used in the manipulation of physical actuality.

s31

This probable self has operated in each reincarnation, in each materialization of the personality, and has at its command literally millions of probable situations and conditions upon which to make value judgements. Of itself, however, it does not make the decision as to whether or not a particular event will be made physical. It merely passes on the information that it has received through experience.

s24

This information is sifted often through the dreaming self to the subconscious which has intimate knowledge of the ego with which it is closely connected. The subconscious makes its own judgements and passes these on with the data. Then the ego makes its decision. In some cases, the ego refuses to make the decision, and it is done by the subconscious. On occasion, when an unwise decision is made by the ego, the subconscious will change it.

s38

The probable self can be reached through hypnosis but only with excellent subjects and operators. Often it will not be recognized, however, for there will be no evidence of its experience in physical reality to back up its statements. Its data will agree when considered within its own framework. Reaching it in this manner would be highly difficult in any case. To my knowledge, it has not as yet been reached through hypnosis. It has been glimpsed but not recognized as a separate part of the self — in dream recordings and analytic sessions.

s14

Again, these portions of the self exist in each reincarnation. In the materialization of personality through various reincarnations only the ego and layers of personal subconscious adapt new characteristics. Other portions retain their experience, identity, and knowledge. The ego, if fact, receives much of its stability because of this retention. Were it not for experiences in other lives on the part of deeper layers of the self, the ego would find it almost impossible to relate to other individuals, and the cohesive nature of society would not exist.

s26

 

If you would have some idea of what the probable universe is like, then examine your own dreams, looking for those events which do not have any strong resemblance to the physical events of waking existence. Look for dream individuals with whom you are not acquainted in normally conscious life. Look for landscapes that appear bizarre or alien, for all of these exist somewhere. You have perceived them. They do not exist in the space that you know but neither are they non-existent, mere imaginative toys of the dreaming mind, without substance.

s223

You may not be able to make sense from what appears to be a chaotic jungle of disconnected images and actions. The main reason for your confusion is the inability of an egotistical identity to perceive order that is not based upon continuity of moments. The order within the probable system is based upon something that could be compared to subjective associations or intuitive flashes of insight — experiences that can combine ingredients that could appear to the ego as disconnected. Here they are combined into whole integrated patterns of action.

s32

The probable system does not achieve its order through subjective association, but the term is the nearest I can use to approximate the basic causes for this order. The events within it are, indeed, objective and concrete within their own field of reality, for example. Our own system is real and concrete only within its own field, remember.

s12

In sleep, not only do we withdraw from the physical field of actuality but we also enter other systems.

Living Time

Great as things are, there is a totality of experience and sensation that includes all, a vortex that contains and transforms infinite parts. I know that of which I speak. Yet, each minute event immeasurably  increases not only itself but all other events, bringing into birth by its own actualization an infinitude of novus actions and events, an unfolding or multi-dimensionalizing of itself, an initiation into dimensionalization. For all versions and possibilities of each event must be actualized in the limitless multiplication of creativity.

t41

And warping outward from each act are a million openings, roads traveled and experienced by the soul, naturally and spontaneously following its attributes.

t23

Any one moment in physical time then is a warp, opening into these other dimensional of actuality, and any one moment can be used as a passageway or bridge. The act of crossing will be reflected in a million other worlds, but these reflections will be themselves alive and the act of perceiving itself will create still another vortex of actualization.

t53

Attention can be shifted from any physical moment to any probable moment by a sideways parallel imaginative thrust — a sliding off of.

t16

Each probable event is changed by each other probable event. There is constant simultaneous interaction. These ‘separate’ probable systems do not operate isolated from each other, then, but are intimately connected. All systems are open. The physical moment is transparent, though we give it a time-solidity. We see it as opaque.

t42

Attention can be shifted from any physical moment to any probable moment by a sideways parallel imaginative thrust, a sideling off of focus, if the mind can get over its fear of dying to itself.

In what other worlds, for example, do we sit writing these blogs?

t19

Slide imaginatively into a world where we do not perform the next small action  we will perform in this world. Cough, smile, sneeze — in some other actuality our actions are non-actions and our non-acts are realized.

t20

Greet the now-realization of all of our dreams, for they also participate in the probable system. As our dreams bleed into our normal conscious life, so do they bleed into other probabilities. A dream act is actualized by a waking ‘I’, as a waking ‘I’ is actualized by a dreaming self.

t38

The soul is too great to know itself, yet each individual portion of the soul seeks this knowledge and in the seeking creates new possibilities of development, new dimensions of actuality. The individual self at any given moment can connect with its soul. There is initially a sidetal movement of consciousness, a dropping away sensation.

c14

We step sideways, as though we are squeezing between two bars. We attempt to save even the shadows of ourselves, and we create light in even the darkest recesses of our own hidden fragments. To that extent and in those terms, we are our own redeemers.

So one portion of the self lends a helping hand to another, in the same way that I give my blog readers a helping hand.

t1

 

What I want to explain here is that the communications do not just operate in a vertical, ascending or descending fashion, but horizontally, in those terms.

t39

The experience brings up several points that have not been discussed in previous blogs in connection with probabilities. Because we are born physically into our system, we take it for granted without thinking of it that we are born in the same manner into other systems. This may or may not apply, but it is definitely not applicable to the system of probabilities as a whole.

Energy created in such a fashion, as we know, cannot be negated and must continue along its own lines of development.

t43

From this standpoint these are fragment personalities; therefore, they have our memories up to that point of their initiation, and they continued of from there. Such personalities can be created and are created under varying conditions too many enumerate.

t35

Unconsciously, we are aware of their progress, as unconsciously they are aware of ours. We see to it that they will be helped. Remember that regardless of anything, we give them existence and consciousness, a gift of creativity, and potentials that they will try in their own way to fulfill. Their experiences have been different from ours. Their fulfillment, when they achieve it, will, therefore, be of a different nature, bringing out facets of activity that will not exist in our circumstances.

t12

Now, in the life of each personality there are, of course, moments of deep crisis and decision, where a personality decides upon one of various possible choices. These moments are not necessarily conscious at all, and the choices are not necessarily conscious, though often they rise to consciousness. But by then, the inner work and decision has been done.

c43

This is the next line of our development, however. We clear away debris. We give ourselves psychic breathing space so that our creative abilities could arise, and see that the way was open.

t37

It’s one thing to accept the idea of probable systems and probable selves selves as an exciting intellectual concept, and quite another to accept the practical considerations involved if we think of probabilities as plain facts or existence. Through our experiences, the concept becomes a reality with which we are confronted.

Precognition, Clairvoyance and Mass Dreams

Each individual creates matter, including objects and his or her own image. Coherence, illusion of permanency, placement in space, mass and color are all arrived at and agreed upon in the ways already explained in previous blogs. Telepathic communication is one of the methods by which such agreement is reached.

c43

Long ago, primary and secondary constructions were explained. I emphasized that each individual perceives only his own physical constructions. Basically, there is no difference between telepathy and clairvoyance. The apparent difference is the result of an inadequate understanding of the nature of time. The important fact in both cases is that information is received that does not come through normal sense channels.

c29

When an individual clairvoyantly ‘sees’ an event, this is what happens: First he forgets the concept of continual moments that usually hampers perception. His or her perception changes focus so that he or she is aware of an events that otherwise would seem to be in the future. Unconsciously, as always, he or she constructs material objects in line with the available data.

c41

It goes without saying, then, that he or she helps to form the clairvoyantly perceived event, just as he or she helps construct any event in the present. The agreement as to physical dimensions is reached in the same manner as usual.

c12

Sense data is not basically dependent upon the physical body. The mind can bypass the senses and receive data in a more direct manner, translating what it perceives automatically, as it translates ordinary sense data.

c5

Under ordinary circumstances, data is received through the physical senses and then interpreted by the brain. When a clairvoyant event is perceived, the data is received by the mind, then given to the brain which then interprets it. The physical body becomes aware of it, but the senses have actually been bypassed. The interpretation is made, however, in the same way as it usually is. Otherwise, the information would not register for the physical organism.

c44

Actually, of course, much information perceived directly by the mind does bypass the physical organism completely. In some such cases, the subconscious does receive the data. In other cases, it is not recorded in any way within the physical system but is recorded at deeper layers of the self.

c21

Even this data is available to the subconscious, however, if the need for it arises. Before it can be used by the physical organism, it must first be taken from the deeper layers to the brain for interpretation, as if it were new sense data.

c32

In the dream state, we smell odors that are not in the physical room. The memory of these is imprinted and registered by the body as faithfully and realistically as any ‘real’ odor. The experience becomes a part of buried memory and may be recovered through hypnosis. Sometimes it may arise spontaneously.

There are many kinds of mass or shared dreams. For now, we will be concerned with mass dreams that have an almost universal nature; that is, dreams  that are shared at one time or another by the majority of living persons on our planet.

c23

This particular kind of dream is concerned with working out certain problems concerning physical reality. The dreams usually are not precognitive, although they might appear to be, since many of the dream events will later occur. They are not recognitive, however, because in a large measure they bring about or cause the later events.

c25

They occur, comparatively speaking, just above that layer which Jung refers to as the collective unconscious. If we could tune into these dreams, we would have a good idea of the main events of the future because we would see them being born. They are concerned with significant events that affect many countries. They represent deep intents, wishes and purposes. At times they have immense power to bring about world-shaking changes of beneficial or destructive nature.

c33

One individual is more important that we have ever dreamed, however, for the intensity and intent are important. One man or woman passionately willing good or evil can overbalance literally a hundred men or women. And in the dream state, also, leaders can be born and make themselves known. The people already know them in mass dreams before they are recognized in physical reality.

 

 

Precognition and Association

Association is not clearly understood, because psychologists, at present, believe that it works only in connection with past events. They also underestimate dream events, for many associations are the result of events that happen in the dream state, where the mind continues its associative processes.

as9

Any given personal association may originate from a dream event, as well as from a past waking one. Psychologists, generally speaking, have not yet accepted the theories of our own physicists, and they continue to consider time as a series of moments. The inverted time system recognizes the actual nature of time. There is room in it for a rather complete explanation of the mind’s associative processes. The mind, as opposed to the brain, perceives in terms of a spacious present. Therefore, it draws its associations not only from our present and past but also from our future.

as25

Take an example: Dorian X, becomes ill whenever he smells a certain perfume. He does not know the reason. A psychologist might explain the reaction by presuming that some unpleasant event from the past was connected with his perception of the perfume. The explanation is a good possible one; however, it is often the only one that would be considered.

as1

Dorian may be reacting to an unpleasant event experienced in the dream state in which the upsetting situation was accompanied by the particular odor. But he could also be reacting to a future event of the same nature, for again, the mind does not break time into a series of moments. This is done by the physical brain.

as14

The ego, as a rule, is not aware of this broader time experience, but the subconscious often is; and associative processes of the mind can and do react to the future. Therefore, it is possible for our Dorian to becomes ill this year at the smell of a particular perfume because, say, subconsciously he knows that in 2017 his mother will be wearing it when she dies. The associative processes work both forward and backward.
