The series of podcasts published at http://www.beyondreason.com offer insights into the various practitioners and researchers currently working on topics that provide support to Origen’s theory of “The Restoration of All Things”. Understanding Origen’s teaching helps us to see the bigger picture of these personal experiences.November 5, 2006 at 2:34 pm #1446AnonymousInactive
Comments on “The Other Side of Death” by Scott Degenhardt http://www.sitemason.com/files/emsmPK/degenhardt.mp3
Dear Teddy and Karlen,
I am very happy with the content of your recent podcasts, especially Scott Degenhardt. It looks he is doing great work, carrying on from Elisabeth Kubler-Ross’s work.
It would be nice if you could do a podcast with Dr. Ian Stevenson at the University of Virginia about his work on reincarnation. I would be sure that many of your listeners would be fascinated by his on-going work. I would specifically be interested in hearing from him about the spiritual aspects of his work; going beyond the forensic studies, and support the work done by Scott Degenhardt.
I have a good friend in Brazil who fits into his case history. She has a dreadful fear of guns, a birthmark in the middle of her chest 1 cm in diameter and suffered the majority of her life with a spinal pain behind her heart.
I am not looking to document the case of reincarnation, but I would like to address the spiritual sickness that she brought into this life as a result of her past life. The spiritual body was injured in the last life, and when she was born it had not yet healed. This spiritual injury affected the development of the skin at the entry wound, but this was minor compared to the damage done to the spiritual body where the bullet was lodged into the spine. Modern medicine cannot detect this type of spiritual injury, and many other similar ones.
My friend was cured of this spiritual illness through the use of the alternative medical practice of eutony a few years ago, after wasting so much time with standard medical examinations and treatments. Modern, materialistic medicine does not acknowledge these spiritual illnesses, and Dr. Stevenson’s work should help some practitioners to look beyond the physical/chemical level of metal illness to the root cause of it: the spiritual sickness.
I am a little perplexed at the name of your site though. The ancient Greeks taught us to “study creation in order to get to know its Creator”. Socrates, the father of logic and reason spoke as much about the spiritual world as he did the physical, if not more. I would venture to say that he would not place any of your topics as “beyond reason”; but then our modern, materialistic society is no where as holistic as Socrates taught us to be…
Best wishes, Shawn
Ps. Karlen you asked about how a lost spirit (ghost) can continue his/her addiction in the podcast. I would like to give a very good book to show you the great danger of these types of spiritual addicts. It is called “A Wanderer in the Spirit Lands” by Franchezzo ISBN 1411687183, and you will see how these lost spirits use the bodies of the weak-in-spirit to relive their addictions.
Another good reference is Dr. Carl Wickland’s book “Thirty Years Among the Dead” which is available at http://www.harvestfields.netfirms.com/ebook/etexts/57/00.htmNovember 5, 2006 at 2:38 pm #1447AnonymousInactive
Comments on “Do Ghosts Exist? with Linda Alice Dewey http://www.sitemason.com/files/bXndUA/dewey.mp3
It was nice to hear that you are looking to go with out the layover in Atlanta! The early Christians knew how to make this non-stop flight. You may be interested to read the paper that I wrote about Origen of Alexandria and his theory of the “Restoration of All Things” called “Origen: Heretic or Prophet” http://www.origenes2000.org/aboutus.htm. So much horror was brought to the world in the name of Christianity by worldly leaders that it is hard to look back through this to the true roots of Christian teaching.
Linda Alice Dewy has a beautiful heart and some great insight; and if you look back to the greatest Christian teacher you will find confirmation of her insight and a great wealth of information about ghosts (the lost souls), spirits (returning souls) and Angels (pure souls that never fell). Origen taught that each of us is on our own road to complete restoration and union with God (and His Will). Some of us have just started this path and do not really know where we are going. It is these souls (who have not recognized His Will) that remain lost after they die. Those have been here many times (and see the purpose of their life and suffering) are ready for their death and for their further development in the spiritual world. They do remember the place they came from and cannot wait to get back to it! They also have many from the higher heavens waiting to greet them.
It was truly Good New (Gospel) that Jesus brought to humanity; opening the Gates of Heaven and allowing all of us (the Fallen Souls) to finally start going Home; even eventually the king of this world: Lucifer!

Comments on “Angels, Helpers and Spirit Guides” http://www.sitemason.com/files/eNWjZK/SutphenSpiritGuides.mp3
In this podcast you asked Richard: “Are they [spirit guides] aware of our prayers? Do they intercede on our behalf?”
Many religions talk about the omnipresence of God. Modern philosophy talks about the goal of life for our soul to become at one with The One. Both of these views are really squishy views of God as The Creator and our Father. If you look at Angels (unfallen, pure souls) and spirit guides (returning souls) as doing the Will of God, it is then easy to see how God can be in effect omnipresent, while still being a unique being. With legions of Angels at one with Him and all the guardian spirits; He can insure His Will is done!
Our greatest gift is the gift of Free Will. That is why we are here, so far away from where we were created. We must choose to follow His Will, and when we do this, His Angels will intercede on our behalf. When we choose not to do His Will, then there are plenty of lost souls (those who have not chosen the path back to God) and dark souls (who are still loyal servants of Lucifer) ready to come to our sides.
This brings us the weegee board problem that you bring up. It is God’s Will that we freely live our lives in the way Jesus showed us to. People who do this do not really need to talk their Guardian Angel, because they already know in the heart of hearts what they need to do in this life. Skeptics and non-believers will only be able to “talk” to spirits at their own level or on their same wavelength. What value does anyone gain from talking to someone who does not really know he/she is dead, and does not know how to get to the light?
The difficulty in our lives is to fine the true spiritual teachers, because the highest spiritual teachings are truly precious (See Matthew 7:6) When you look back into history, as I have done with critical eyes, you will find that all the true spiritual teachers have been brutally killed and defamed. Look at the fate of all the Prophets of Israel including Jesus. Look at Socrates, Origen of Alexandria, Joan of Arc, and Galileo. What these all have in common is they had something to say that our materialistic, power hungry world did not want to hear and did not want the masses to learn.

Comments on “Unlocking Your Psychic Abilities” with Echo Bodine http://www.sitemason.com/files/hRzec8/bodine.mp3
Yes, the bible is a very good handbook for someone developing their psychic ability. It gives many examples of what is possible, and more importantly, warns of the potential risks. The most important warning comes in 1 John 4: “Test the spirits”.
The thing that Echo did not make clear is the broad range of abilities that get labeled today as psychic. She mixes the idea of reading thoughts and prophecy, which is dangerous. It is important to know that this gift allows the user access to spiritual energy and spiritual beings; both positive and negative. Using the music analogy further, everyone may have the potential to play music, but few can play J.S. Bach as he wrote it and even fewer can compose music as beautiful as he wrote.
Keeping with this analogy, we find that the true musical masters are not just gifted, but their whole person is aligned with the Divine. At the end of each piece Bach wrote, he dedicated it to “The Honor of God”. Psychics or mediums can only access the spectrum of spiritual energy which is in tune with them (mind, body, and soul). Moses told the Israelites to cleanse themselves before approaching the mountain and not to attempt to climb the mountain in order to protect them from the intensity of God’s Light. Only Moses and his medium Joshua were pure enough in heart (soul) to be this close to God; all the others would have been killed by the intensity of His Light. There are few examples of people with this precious gift, but many more who have used their gift for material gain, such as the great oracles of the past , including Delphi.
As you know we all have seven chakras. Each one of these has its own frequency, from low (red, base chakra) to high (violet, crown chakra). Attached to each one of the chakras are the seven layers of our spiritual body. When a clairvoyant looks at the spiritual body of someone, rarely can they see all seven, but rather they are able to see the one in-tine with their own frequency. Being able to see the life energy associated with the base chakra can help in healing, but this does not mean the clairvoyant can see the higher frequency bodies or the higher frequency beings (Angels, Elves, and Fairies). These laws govern all spiritual communication, (I.e. a clairaudient can only hear within their own personal bandwidth.)
Teddy, you asked a very good question: “What should a psychic do who is in a situation where they are not appreciated or understood?” I know many of people in this category also and the most successful ones do nothing at all; they just are. If a psychic has aligned their mind, body, and soul with the Divine, their greatest work is just to be, not to do: to just let His Love and Light flow through them to their friends, family and clients. I have a good friend who has a very materialist husband and rejects all her beliefs and her gifts, but she is never alone! Besides communicating with the Divine Spiritual World she talks directly to her husband’s soul/heart and does not bother to talk to his ego or mind. His soul is very grateful for this, even though his mind cannot accept it. It is not our job to change people or know why they are as they are; but rather to allow the option to change through their Free Will and to show them another way…

Comments on “Jesus: The Misunderstood Jew” with AJ Levine http://www.sitemason.com/files/iICOpq/levine.mp3
Dear Teddy and Karlen,
AJ should know as a scholar that the group of people who followed Moses out of Egypt were slaves from all over the world, and not one race. They were Hebrews (sharing a common belief) and not Jews (common ancestry). The distinction between spiritual (of the eternal spiritual world) and material (finite) has been the root of strife throughout the bible, and today.
With this understanding, it is clear that Jesus was born into a Jewish family, but he was a Christian who was baptized by John the Baptist; an outward act for Him to show His spiritual ancestry. When you read the bible with an open heart, you see that all the Prophets and Jesus criticized the Jewish tradition and power structure. They all abhorred the materialistic interpretation of sacrifice and the materialistic interpretation of the Word of God.
For me it is clear that the Jews were (are) not able to recognize Jesus as the Messiah, because they were expecting a material ruler and material peace. They could not see the Spiritual Ruler who brought peace to a Spiritual Place called Jerusalem. Jesus tells us that “His Kingdom is not of this world.” So this begs the question, “Where is His Kingdom?”.
It was not until the Third century that Origen of Alexandria brought these points all together and reconciled Jewish belief with the Christian belief brought by Jesus in his work Contra Celsum. Only with the broad view taken by Origen and with his exacting examination of all teachings (with what we would call to day the scientific method) is any scholar able to break free of a materialistic interpretation of the Old Testament and find the deeper spiritual meaning within it. This is personal process that each individual must go through, because without throwing aside our materialistic view point, a spiritual view is impossible. “It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.”

Commnets on AfterLife Encounters with Dianne Arcangel http://www.sitemason.com/files/gma37O/archangel.mp3
Dear Teddy and Karlen,
I am always interested to listen to your show and to challenge your title: “Beyond Reason”. Your interview with Dianne, breached the beyond reason threshold for me. I have access to the same information and research that Elizabeth Kubler-Ross had, and this does not agree with Dianne’s description of discarnate spirits. As we know from the broad spectrum of personalities that exist within mankind, her hypothesis that all of these personalities are good after death is “Beyond Reason”.
The research that we know from Elizabeth Kubler-Ross, Carl Wickland, and Whalter Hinz shows us that that all the personalities continue in the afterlife. The ones who are spiritually advanced, do not bother coming back to the material world (unless they have a specific job to do). The materialistic personalities tend to stay with what they are used to and reject the spiritual world. The ones who carry hate, greed, and envy into death are just as dark in the afterlife as they were in their life and they can be allowed to haunt and possess the living (see Wickland also Edith Fiore and Franchezzo).
Ignorance of the darker discarnate spirits is a great fault of religion, as all major religions downplay the darks side of the spiritual world. This was done out of good reason, as praying to or paying tribute to the dark side has horrible consequences for the living. (i.e. Voodoo, Oracles) But ignorance of the dark side and its power over individuals is a mistake. There is great need to bring light to this darkness today, especially in light of all the glitter the dark side has to offer humanity. The light side does not entice us with wealth, fame and power, but the dark side does.
Best wishes, Shawn
