Part Five: Visits with a soul group – Part II.
If you’ve joined me for Part One of this blog you’ll know that, as part of my mediumistic development many years ago, my spiritual teacher Joan and I were allowed – at times, and during deep meditation – to visit and connect with Joseph’s soul group, these ‘adventures’ beginning in the front room of Joan’s house where we met each week to connect with higher vibrations in order to advance our spiritual knowledge.
On such occasions we were taken to higher realities in our spirit bodies whilst our physical ‘shells’, with us still connected to these via the electro-magnetic ‘silver‘ umbilical chord that only severs upon physical ‘death’, remained behind.
On one particular Sunday, however, we were permitted to visit not our usual destination, but the ‘location’ of a different soul group to Joseph’s …and the experience is one I shall never forget.
This extraordinary journey began with us meditating as usual on a Sunday afternoon at Joan’s house. Soon we were joined by several familiar members – known spirits – from Joseph’s soul group, who gathered around us then said in unison to me: ‘Don’t be afraid.’
‘I’m not’, I replied calmly, wondering why on earth they would say this.
‘Don’t be afraid,’ they repeated several times. I then looked down and realised that I was no longer sitting in a chair in meditation but was hovering in the air, along with Joan, a few inches above the floor. ‘Don’t be afraid,’ our spirit friends repeated one final time, as they formed a protective circle around us. I then experienced a sudden ‘whoosh’ …a feeling of rapid upwards motion. We shot up through the ceiling and the roof of the house as though these things didn’t exist. Up. Up. Up!! I then realised why I’d been urged not to be afraid, because I suddenly found myself, together with Joan and our visitors from the soul group, hovering at a great height above and gazing down upon a startlingly beautiful landscape.
This very obviously wasn’t the earth, but a spiritual dimension we hadn’t seen before… Spread out below us were fields and hedges in unusual and vibrant colours… greens, purples, reds… and threading through them was a mirror-still silver river with a sailboat on it. The water wasn’t just silver in colour, it was actually composed of liquid silver. I looked ahead and saw that there was no curvature to the landscape at the horizon as you would witness from a great height when looking down on our planet. An overall light source illuminated every aspect of this vista, rather than that illumination coming from the single source of light our physical sun provides. Light seemed to be everywhere and to shine out from every part of the scene.
Streaks of many colours could be seen all around us in the sky, shooting towards and past us at great speed – like luminous vapour trails but without any planes to create them. It was only when these moving arcs of colour drew closer to us that I realised I was witnessing people – spirits – in brightly coloured robes, flying through the air by simply thinking themselves from point A to point B. – What a wonderful way to travel!
We descended slowly to the ground, and my feet gently touched down on soft, springy grass. We found ourselves standing in a valley – an area of gentle, undulating hills. Here and there throughout this peaceful landscape stood spirits – men and women – each wearing robes of an identical colour and style. Several of them approached us and began to communicate with us by thought (their mouths didn’t move but we could clearly hear what they were saying). They made us aware that they were engaged in a project they had elected to undertake together as a soul group commune, and that they were completely in harmony in purpose and intent whilst simultaneously being free to go about and pursue their individual lives and interests.
One of the spirits drew our attention to a tall and imposing-looking boulder that was standing on the grass – about the width and height of a person. I could feel its presence – its sentience. The spirit placed his hand on it and indicated that the boulder was considered to be an equal part of the soul group, and that no distinction was made between various expressions of life here – all were part of the whole, equally respected, loved and included in all decisions and undertakings. I was allowed to sense the harmony, love and unity of purpose of the group – so far removed from our petty differences on earth.
Our soul group friends then surrounded us again and indicated that it was time to leave. I was very reluctant to do so as this was such a beautiful, spiritual place. There was such a feeling of permanence in the air. I knew that nothing here could ever decay or die or become corrupted.
…Suddenly I found myself falling, falling… Joan, travelling beside me, was falling too, our ‘fall’ culminating in the strange sensation of tumbling back into our own physical bodies, re-inhabiting them and reconnecting with them with a jolt.
We slowly took charge of our physical senses and opened our eyes. …Back! …Such a pity! For three full weeks following our trip everything on earth looked ‘false’ – ‘fake’ – to me …an illusion; ephemeral… with no more substance or permanence than a ‘film set’. It was as though I could peer behind this ‘reality’ and discover it was nothing more than a series of ‘flats’ (as they call them in the film world) – nothing more substantial than a series of painted scenes supported by timber struts and placed around as back-drops to give the illusion of reality against which we act out our lives here. Only when my vibrations had slowed down sufficiently to integrate with this level of consciousness once again did I begin to feel anywhere near ‘normal’ and able to tolerate living on this level again.
Where had we been? Relatively speaking, just two shifts – two elevations – of vibration away from this one. Just two…so take heart, dear friends. As Joseph assures us in all his books and communications, we are part of a far greater and far more rewarding journey than we can possibly imagine at this point in our experience.
There’s no need to be afraid of the nonsenses humanity dreams up and tries to convince you are real … they have no power over the real you. No actions taken on this level of this illusion can ever extinguish or diminish what you actually are: a spirit originating from – and travelling back to – higher dimensions….
Destined to visit, experience, then move on from the plain described above into even more rewarding and uplifting frequencies of ‘be-ing’.
Consider: Just two shifts of vibration ‘up’ from this one.
– Now imagine what wonders await us in the levels of spiritual reality beyond that blissful landscape…
