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
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.”
Best regards, Shawn
There is one other very important thing to remember about Moses. God did not let him into the Promised Land. This clearly means that God did not find favor with his life. I am astounded by those who do not read the prophets. All the prophets admonished the Jews for their ungodly acts; just look at Isaiah 1 for an example. These are the same acts of blood sacrifice that Moses allowed Aaron to bring into the Jewish practice. Aaron (and Moses) acted as the many generations that followed them; they destroyed the prophet (Miriam) who stood against these pagan acts. It was Joshua who found favor with the Lord (Numbers 14:20-38) and was not drawn into the evil acts of the elders.
What Origen was able to discover through his work on the Hexapla was how the later generations covered their tracks, putting emphasis on that which pleased them. The second writing of the Old Testament, written by the priests who came back from exile in Babylon justified themselves and the rituals they learned in the city of the devil. They adjusted the bible to paint Miriam as being the one in the wrong. They also removed many of prophets’ words which admonished the scribes for doing exactly this.
You bring up some very good points here regarding men of God and allegory. People today think of allegory as something magical, or of just plain reading what you want into a passage. The main advantage that Origen had over all of us today is the most extensive understanding of the Old Testament and the actions taken to bury its Truth over the years after its writing. (See his historic work on the Hexapla.) The allegory of Origen was based on his extensive knowledge of all passages of the bible and an understanding at the literal, moral, and spiritual levels free of contradiction from Genesis to Revelations.
How could God (who gave Moses the commandment, thou shall not kill) tell any person to kill? One has to look closely at the ‘gods’ who supposedly told people to kill and try to understand if they were really God or just Lucifer posing as a god (see http://www.origenes2000.org/PDF/whychristiansfightwars.pdf ). There are many cases of the latter, and I know of only one of the former. This is the Passover story when God ordered the death of the First Born of Egypt.
This case was special in two ways; first, God ordered his angles to kill the first born and not man to do so. Second, this was the first born of Egypt or of Lucifer. It was the practice at that time in Egypt to present the virgin daughters of Egypt to the high priest of the temple when they came of age (16). Just as an Angel of God possessed (took control of) Joseph’s body at the time of the “immaculate conception” of Jesus, so did Lucifer possess the high priest when he raped the virgins of Egypt. It was the children of this act that God was destroying, and why he sent his Angel of Death to kill only the first born.
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…
