Trance-Scriptions: The collected Soul Group Messages sessions
Part I: Never say Never…
Following delivery of the final chapter of the eighth Joseph Communications book The Spaces Between I had vowed never to allow myself to go into trance again. Indeed, Joseph himself had warned the Band of Light that it would be dangerous for me to do so with regards to my current and future states of health. Regularly surrendering my mind and body to such high vibrations, then plunging my consciousness back into the relatively low and dense vibrational soup of the Earth plane had left me severely depleted, and I determined, whilst still wishing to bring through as much spiritual information as I possibly could, that I would deliver any further communications via a less debilitating, clairvoyant connection.
…Never say never, as the saying goes.
As the world continued to distance itself from spiritual consciousness and, as a result, plunged deeper and deeper into a kind of global madness, I agreed to give myself over to Joseph and the Persian Gentleman in a trance state one final time to allow them to address the current state of things on Earth with a view to them advising how to rectify them, the resulting communications being released on our YouTube channel as four new videos.
Over a period of time, I then felt a pressing compulsion to be of further service… to connect with Joseph and his soul group once more to regularly bring through additional spiritual insights, with a view to releasing these as a continuing series of ‘Soul Group Messages’, sourced clairvoyantly, on the channel. The dividing line between a clairvoyant link and a trance state is, however, a wafer-thin one in my case and, try as I might to keep them open, every so often I would make the mistake of closing my eyes, if only momentarily, which would instantly result in me take me being taken into trance.
As Joseph had forewarned, the aftermath of further trance sessions would be hard to take. I was ‘out of it’ for the best part of a week following each communication, and to say I felt less than well during each ‘recovery period’ – and then generally ‘sub-standard’ the rest of the time – would be an understatement. I persevered for as long as I possibly could, but promised Jane, who had been voicing increasing concerns, that I would stop if she ever asked me to. Eventually, and as my health continued to deteriorate, she did… and so I brought the trance sessions to a close, having overrun my ‘trance engines’ and pushed them to the limit by some two further years.
The resulting thirty-or-so videos are still available on our YouTube channel, but have never been offered in written, keepable form to Joseph readers. Until now. In this new series we hope to make all of the additional communications from the soul group available to read and collect (we’ll eventually gather them into downloadable e-book form) beginning with the text below. You will notice that the communication opens as a clairvoyant link, with me describing the communicators in the third person, but that the connection then wanders into first person singular territory as I inevitably drift in and out of a trance state.
Heartfelt gratitude goes to staunch Joseph Communications supporter and valued member of our old friend Mandy’s Joseph Readers Group, Jules Gadiot, who meticulously transcribed the following text and many of those to come. Your dedication and support are greatly appreciated, Jules, and your hard work has made this series possible. As a result of your efforts, more souls globally will now be given access to the Communications’ message.
(A couple of final observations:
* Occasionally, in offering this written version of the original visual presentation, I felt the need to transpose the odd word and take out any of the repetition that is normal and acceptable in speech but redundant in a text. Apart from these very slight alterations, the following is a verbatim transcription of the original session.
* It should also be noted that, at points where I have handed over completely to the communicators, these changes are indicated, as are the points at which I revert to once again relaying their comments via clairvoyance.)
Soul Group Messages – 1.
Spirit Communicators: ‘The Persian Gentleman’; ‘the Lady in Blue’; ‘the Chinese Gentleman’.
Michael (via clairvoyance): There are three people from the soul group with me and I will attempt to tune into each one of them in turn. The leader of this group of three is my principal guiding influence, the Persian Gentleman. The Persian Gentleman appears in different colours, according to what he wants to express and wishes to get across to us… he wears beautiful clothes and likes very ornate robes… and today he is in a very ornate yellow/gold robe. He is the first to speak because he is the organiser of the ‘meeting’, as it were… of today’s connection.
Michael (relaying the Persian Gentleman’s words and describing his actions):
He is holding a question mark; a big question mark… Holding it/placing it in front of him. He says it is the nature of the spirit beings that we are to examine possibilities, and we can only examine possibilities if we question …if we think, ‘What’s next?’ …if we look at circumstances and thoroughly investigate them from a spiritual point of view. He says it saddens him at this time that so few people are using that ‘question mark’, which is their spiritual right. He says that spirits on Earth should question every aspect of their lives daily. He says at the moment there is a trap people are falling into, in that they are shutting their minds – like a trap, like a prison block – they are shutting themselves in via the mind and not asking the questions that they should be asking from their hearts.
The reason, he says, people on Earth are not doing this is because it is disturbing… it is disturbing at the moment to ask questions… but, in asking questions, you become truer to yourself, because in asking questions you identify with your Greater Self and you are able to reason for yourself and to reach conclusions for yourself and say at the end of the day: ‘This is what I am today, and this is what I am not today.’
He is directing me to the heart, as he often does, because the heart is the seat of spiritual knowledge. He is opening the heart like a flower, and says some part of each day should be spent asking questions from the heart. And he says this is done in private; the questions are unique to you; the answers are unique to you. But you will never be satisfied in living here – you will never be truly happy – until you identify once again with your true mission …and your true mission here as a spirit is to examine potential.
The Persian Gentleman (taking over):
If you fail to examine potential, you stagnate as a spirit and you do not evolve whilst you are here …And you are here to evolve… you are here to become more each day than you were yesterday. You do not become more by living in stasis! Within you there is a…
Back to Michael for a moment: (alright) he says, describe it as a conscience – he says that word has been all but eliminated in recent years.
– Then back to ‘PG’:
‘There is a conscience. There is a conscience in that you know within yourself what is right for you …what is not right for you …what is right in the way you approach others …what is not right in the way that you approach others …what is right in the way you observe and live in the world …what is not right in the way you observe and live in the world. All these things need to be accessed regularly. Regularly!
‘Many people on Earth wish to evolve spiritually. They look at people like Michael and say: ‘Well, I would like to be a medium. I wish I could see the Persian Gentleman. I wish I could see the area he is living in. I wish I could bring through communication.’ Seek first union with yourself – then you will be given access to additional spiritual vibrations. Seek first to identify yourself.
‘- What do you believe?
‘- What do you invest power in?
‘- What do you question?
‘If you don’t question, then your passage through life is halted. It has no purpose other than to sustain you as a physical being and mental being. As a spirit being you are supposed to progress, to learn, to advance, to influence – through your beliefs and the way you approach life here – the rest of humanity. And you can only do that if you question.
‘So, I am bringing you this question mark today and am saying that, if you wish to raise your spiritual vibration (and in doing so, you raise the spiritual vibration, only perhaps by the smallest degree, but you raise the vibration of everyone else) – if you wish to do this, then don’t accept everything. Don’t accept your life as it is. Go within your heart (there are instructions as to how to do this on the channels Tony and Michael have put together. There is further information as to how to access the heart-centre). Learn how to go to your heart-centre… and from your heart-centre – having shifted your point of consciousness from here [head] to here [heart] –question from your heart-centre.
‘Not just about this world, but about our world, our existence: What is it about? What is my existence like? Where do I live? How do I operate? What is that scenario that follows physical death, as you call it – a misnomer – but your physical death? Question! Question life after death. Don’t just accept that there is something, and that’s fine, or that there is nothing, and that is also fine.
‘Take yourself on a journey of discovery!
‘And the information you seek, by questioning, will be given to you because you will give yourself access to it. You will align yourself with higher vibrations and those higher vibrations will bring you answers …and also further questions. You will enjoy the process and you will enjoy expanding your consciousness and your reason for being here and the way that you approach everything here. And you will be fulfilling your original purpose as a spirit, in that you will partake in the wonders of this world, the joys of this world, the excitement and adventure of this world. You will forget, bypass and put to one side anything that does not allow you to have that adventure… that joy and excitement.
‘Every day there will be new questions.
‘Every day there will be new answers.
‘And every day you will elevate yourself, so that you no longer look at your existence as ‘an existence’ but as a progression of vibrations from the Godhead that is continually expanding, seeking, asking questions, finding answers. And you will also approach those around you – your family, your friends, everyone across the globe – in the correct way. In a loving way, a harmonious way, an understanding way. In a way that enhances their lives …simply because you are alive here, because your vibration will emanate outwards from you and affect and uplift everyone.
‘So, we begin today’s meeting/connection with a question. And I now hand over to the second of our connections today.’
Michael (via clairvoyance): The Persian Gentleman has stepped back and there is a lady in blue stepping forward. She is dark-skinned. She has black hair; I haven’t seen her before but I know she is a member of the soul group. She is wearing a luminous blue robe, and she has with her an eagle, which seems to… come through her… as though the two are one, but there are two separate spirits here: there is an eagle and there is the lady. Around the lady I can see other forms of life coming into being and then disappearing. …A lion comes through her at knee height. There are other animals too. There is a huge black bear that momentarily comes into being and then fades away.
She says her purpose in speaking today is to urge a reconnection with nature and to promote an understanding that the spirits I have seen with her and, therefore, every spirit in nature …from leaves (which she is showing me) …to some exotic insects that, I think, exist in warmer climates than this one …to birds …to fishes …to microscopic creatures like amoebas (which she is also showing me) – she is saying that every expression of life is you. Every expression of life is you; every expression of life is a part of you. Every expression of life is worthy of its existence and has a purpose in the evolution and maintenance of the planet. She says the reason she allowed me to see various forms of life coming through her was to show that there is not just a close connection, there is a blending and an expression globally that exists because of us having an integration with every form of life. If you eliminate any one of those forms of life – if you take away the black bear, or the eagle, or the lion from the mix, from that integration, then the expression of evolution and the purpose of the Earth is not fulfilled because of that missing piece.
She also wants us to understand that the animals she is integrated with for the purposes of this connection/discussion this morning, are intelligent. She looks to the eagle – and I see the eagle coming through her again. It comes through her head and its wings are outspread – and she says (briefly taking over): ‘I receive wisdom from the eagle. I receive strength from the lion. I receive direction from the black bear.’.
Back to Michael: She is becoming emotional as she says this: ‘This is not appreciated on Earth. It is not appreciated that the various forms of the Divine, other than the human form, are purposeful, are wise.’
The Lady in Blue takes over again: ’For example, the eagle draws on the wisdom of countless generations of eagles. It is passed on to the next generation, to the fledgling eagle. The characteristics of the parents are not only passed on, but the planetary wisdom of every eagle that has ever manifested is passed on to the eagle chick as a natural thing.
‘Consider how wonderful that is. The experience of every lion is passed on to every lion cub. The adventure that every black bear has had is passed on to the bear cub. Because the barriers that exist in the human mind do not exist in the expressions of life, other than the human, that are brought forth by the devas.’
Back to Michael: She says she is talking about the need for there to be a reverence and appreciation of this: that the animal forms and deva forms have far more wisdom, often, than the human form does! And that there should be thankfulness in each day for every creature you see and interact with that is not of the human form. Thankfulness, yes, for every other human form, but also thankfulness for the birds you see in the sky as you walk; for the insects you see scuttling across your path; for the animals in the fields, for every expression of life you come across that is not you and not human…thankfulness and deep respect.
The Lady in Blue takes over again:
‘There was a time, in my culture, when we would seek the wisdom of animal forms and we would incorporate into our day that wisdom in order that we lived harmoniously and without harming animal forms. And we would ask to be guided by the oversoul of certain animals – by the oversoul, for example, of the eagle. We would ask for guidance in a certain way, knowing we could tune into that energy through the actual manifestation of the eagle that was around us, but also that we could tune into and be guided by that ancestral energy. Do you see how far you have removed yourself from the way in which you should be living?
‘What I ask today is that you take time – perhaps only a few seconds – to study and appreciate the animal forms around you… all animal forms around you, and to appreciate the expressions of nature around you. And by doing so, you reconnect with that global guidance that is there for you but you have forgotten how to use.
‘I would also suggest to you that the animal forms are not something to sacrifice simply because you want fulfilment in food. They are intelligent; they are sacred; they are part of you. And now is an excellent time to appreciate that and learn once again not only to live in harmony with them, not only to have respect for them, but to allow them to reconnect with you vibrationally so that you have additional guidance in your life. Love the eagle. Love the bear. Love the lion. Love the trees. Love the insects. Love the fishes. Love the birds. Love your connection with them. Love their ability to give you direction. Love their unique expression of Divinity …and you will move forwards.’
Back to Michael: Thank you. The third person in this connection is a rather jolly gentleman. I don’t mean jolly in that he is rotund – he is jolly in that he enjoys life and smiles a lot, and I recognise him as my partner Jane’s guide, who was Asian – Chinese, I believe. He is in a green robe that has on top of it yellow…um… not symbols… they look like shoots or leaves. He is coming forward and has in his hand… I am trying to see what it is actually, so bear with me. What do you have there? Right, I see. It is a seed…. the seed of a tree, but coming out from this tiny seed, there is a shoot, a sapling, I think it’s called, about this big [30 cm], with little leaves beginning to uncurl.
He says there are many presents given every day on Earth; lots of gifts are given. He sees cards being given … bottles of wine being given … clothes being given …and bigger things being given – like cars and holidays. People all over the world are giving things, but the things they give bring only transient pleasure.
He says it is vital at this time that a present should be given to every person that you meet every day …but what should be given is the seed.
The seed of what?
The seed of spiritual knowledge.
(The Chinese Gentleman takes over at this point):
‘Well, you will probably ask, “How do I give the seed of spiritual knowledge? I don’t know what to say to people.” You don’t have to say anything to people. Your vibration goes out to them whenever you connect with them. What you have to do, as my brother has said (a reference to the Persian Gentleman), is to raise your vibration; is to elevate yourself so that the seed begins to grow in you …you recognise and appreciate your purpose – your connection to universal consciousness – and you begin to understand your life. You question, as he said. You find answers. You find more questions, and you build up a picture from the heart, not from the head, of what your existence here is about.
‘And you then speak with authority to others without saying a word because your vibration from your heart connects to them… whenever you are in a supermarket; in a cinema; in a bus queue. Wherever you happen to be, your vibration mingles with theirs to a certain extent. And your vibration helps to form that seed within them so that they begin to question, they begin to become unsettled. If they are unsettled – it is great! It is wonderful! We want people to be unsettled because, in being unsettled, they begin to question, they begin to seek, they begin to say, ‘This existence that I thought was so perfect, is not perfect. What else is there? Is there anything else?’ And their seed begins to grow.
‘I want to say to you: recognise that whatever your dominant vibrations are, whatever your dominant… not beliefs… but knowledge (because spiritual understanding is knowledge – not belief. Belief needs tending – knowledge does not; knowledge exists) – so, whatever your spiritual knowledge is, that then goes out from you as a vibration that touches and enhances the lives of others and begins to form that seed within their hearts that will unsettle them.
‘I come with smiles, but the smiles have been earned during many lives that did not cause me to smile. During many lives there was a frown on my face, certainly from the point of view of the human aspect of myself that was on Earth. But in going through situations that caused me to frown I learned how to smile spiritually. And I discovered that, when I relinquished the physical body back to the Earth, once I came back to the spiritual spheres, my life had been a joy and I had learned so much. And I had extended and expanded my spiritual seed so that I could exist in elevated vibrations that brought me much happiness.
‘Your life, daily, in seeking to expand yourself, may not bring you the happiness and joy that I am exhibiting today in this life. But, as a result of that struggle, it will in the next. So there is a reason to be joyful every day in that knowledge, knowing you are spreading spiritual seeking, you are spreading a thirst and a hunger for spiritual understanding, and you are giving everyone you meet what they really need as a gift – not something material, but something that somehow unsettles them, somehow eases them or jogs them or jolts them out of that familiar life so they begin to grow their own seed, to open their own heart, and to take that journey, to step on to that road that leads to spiritual rediscovery. I say ‘rediscovery’, because they already know what that seed will bring them; they have just locked it away within themselves and accepted that the material approach to life is all they ever need.
‘There is a good word in there – ‘ever’ – because life goes on for-ever, and this aspect of life is just a small portion of a far greater and more wondrous journey. But this aspect can be infused with the vibrations of that greater journey to make this journey wondrous too.’
Michael: (Handing back to the Persian Gentleman, who concludes as follows):
‘…We will talk again. Different brothers and sisters from the soul group will speak each time.’
Michael: He says that he will conduct the connection to ensure that it is a safe and a high vibrational one.
And he leaves us with positivity, with clear vision, with a vibration to touch every person who watches this video, to touch and uphold and uplift them through what may seem like difficult times, but are only difficult because the aspects of life that they have been talking about are not being observed.
‘Observe them,’ he says, ‘and everything changes!’
