Psychic study is a development of the subconscious regions of the mind to a conscious working capacity. This includes study and comprehension of abilities such as reading minds, seeing auras or seeing events before they take place.
Spiritual development is the cultivation of the conscious mind to process familiar information in a new light. It is a process of restructuring thought and thinking to include Spiritual aspects of self to come to the fore of the conscious mind.
Spiritual Unfoldment is the ability to come to realization, and use the realization automatically in a natural rhythm and flow. This is called demonstration.
Mediumship is the ability of "quickening the Spirit within" to connect with higher planes of the Spiritual spheres Spiritual Unfoldment is not a process that purposely forces you to change your personality and drastically overhaul your life in every aspect. When you do something without the realization, all
your doing is trading off limits and restriction. You are blocking and restricting yourself further, and creating new fixations within your life, which obviously is not development at all. Spiritual
Unfoldment allows you to peel back the restrictions physical development has layered over your Spiritual aspects of minds function revealing your Spiritual self in new light. Spiritual Unfoldment is the forerunner of Mediumship and Spirit communication.
The common denominators of any level of self development programs is meditation, and psychic self protection.
Spiritual Unfoldment is individual because it covers a broad range of study, everyone develops areas of psychic skills and unfolds levels of Mediumship at their own pace. Because development is individually unique, there are no judges or measures for you to go by. The only person you can compare yourself to is yourself.

Thoughts From My notebook
JUNE 27, 1990 11:02
SPIRIT: We are here. What do you wish to address?
RESPONSE: I suppose Global warming and the problems with the ozone layer.
SPIRIT RESPONSE: Yes, global warming is a problem to man right now. With the ozone being destroyed at the rate it is going, you, Man, feel that he will literally cook himself to death. This could happen, but it is unlikely that it will happen. Your Scientists are finding out that you can make ozone "in a test tube," which will help them to understand what affects it - but more importantly how your chemical substances affects it. Once this is clearly understood, you can alter your chemical formulas to help the ozone.
Man is not willing to give up his connivance, therefore the scientific community has to help man protect himself from his conveniences.
Food supplies are being altered - New seeds have to be developed to withstand the temperature as well as adapt to the new word climatic zones. Each Countries' individual climatic zones will always have to grow a certain percent of its own foods - it has to be - everything cannot be imported - and at that rate, who will be the exporters.
This is a natural rotation of earth energy pattern - climate helps to preserve, replenish and rejuvenate certain areas. As climatic zones shift, so does the harvest potentiality of the areas in question.
Excerpt From Class Transcript
OCTOBER 12, 1989
SPIRIT: Do we have another question?
KEN: since no one has a Spiritual question, I have one. About focal points of energy on the earth, there is supposed to be some type of coming, like say a hurcima, shall we say lay lines, this type of thing.
SPIRIT: That is a natural evolution and a natural process of the earth. It is not anything miraculous.
KEN: No, but we seem to have lost much knowledge of this compared to what they had a thousand years ago say.
SPIRIT: Well, you know, evolution is a funny process. To progress within modern times, means giving up something, and unfortunately, you trade knowledge for knowledge. Do you understand what we mean by that?
KEN: Yes. I don't know why that would be.
SPIRIT: Well because you think that the old way becomes obsolete, and you want to be a "modern man" so to speak. Sometimes it's good to let go of the old, it really is, in some ways there are certain parts of the old that you should keep.
That is what your anthropologist search for, you know, is the connections between the generations of men. The connections between the generations of man is technology. The use of technology advances man, but the principle of technology stays the same. Because man bends the principles of technology, they leave information behind. That is what the anthropologists are searching for, the missing links of technology, that is primarily what their drive is, shall we say.
KEN: What were these energies used for within the ancient civilizations?
SPIRIT: It gave more fertile ground to grow their food. It was a natural place, where negativism didn't abide. It was an uplifting place. These places still exist. You see, your putting a mystical meaning to it, and it's not at all mystical. It is a natural propensity to the earth to have these highs and lows. You can go into one neighborhood and say, Oh God, I don't want to be here. Do you understand?
SPIRIT: And you go into another and you say ah, I'd really love to build a house here, because it's peaceful and it's quiet. It's the same thing, except man lived a little differently in those times. They were able to tap into those energy resources, and use them to keep their enlightenment.
KEN: Your talking big areas. My conception of like a lay line would be something that would be maybe five or six feet wide and go in a grid pattern across the earth.
SPIRIT: That is the energy of the earth. It's what keeps you alive.
KEN: A meridian.
SPIRIT: Yes, but it keeps you alive, you see. It's like the circulatory system. Its veins, it's the life pumping through, its mother earths' blood flow system.
Excerpts from a Teaching Seance at The Camp Fire
Concerns About Earth
July 5, 1988
SANDY: How is mother earth coming along?
SPIRIT: Mother Earth is doing quite well in some areas, and in other areas she needs prayers. She needs love and she needs guidance. If the material beings of your plane would band yourself together, and daily send a thought of love to the planet you call Earth, she could become healed.
Do we have another question?
CANDY: How is the ozone situation?
SPIRIT: The ozone situation is not as bad as the scientists of your planet would have you to believe. It is not good by any means. By and through the work of other circles, or other organizations concerned with ecology, the ozone layer is beginning to heal.
LARRY: Should we be overly concerned about the drought and . . .
SPIRIT: No, not really, because well, you know, the drought that is happening in America is a Metaphysical teaching tool. Many children that incarnate into the material planes, the children that started incarnation about 65 to 1970, these souls are of Lumeria.
Many of these souls carry with them the vibration of agriculture, they are farmers. As they mature within the material plane, moving toward adulthood, and become more aware of the problems of their environment, they are naturally being drawn back to their innate interest in agriculture. As they tap into this innate knowledge of their souls, they are going to come up with some pretty unique ideas on how to grow your food, things of that nature, in a more effective way. You have already seen evidence of this type of advanced technology in agriculture at the Epcot Center at Disney World. This is reminiscent of the hanging gardens of Babylon.
As far as the drought is concerned, well that always has been a world problem, there has always been a drought somewhere on the earth plane, but it always rights itself, it takes care of itself some way or other. Faith in God, through prayer, things of that nature. The drought that is going on right now in your country is not going to be particularity bad, it is hurting the farmers a lot, but we don't see Americans starving to death because of it.
Of course your water supply is a recycling process, it evaporates into the atmosphere, and reenters through rain etc. But with the air pollution problems you are creating acid rain, which in turn is devastating your forests and fertile growth areas, so you have created a self-perpetuating cycle that does not help your planet rejuvenate itself through its usual methods.
The things that men do alters the ecology. This forces your ecology to alter itself to help itself. If you're not careful mother earth may have to give up producing her offspring so she can right her ecological system. Bear in mind that her offspring is man.
LARRY: We have another serious problem with pollution and the dumping of garbage and hazardous material.
SPIRIT: There are always the ecologists, and they are always going to fight for those situations to be righted. There are always people that are going to break those laws, but until the people learn that they have to be responsible, it's not going to get much better.
For eons of time, water pollution has been a major problem anyway. Man, as a race, tend to think if it is moving its going to take care of itself, it will flush itself out. Of course, over many centuries of time men have learned differently, or you think that they have learned differently, but they haven't at all.
Your garbage is much more sophisticated today than it has been in times past, so we can't really speculate how you are going to clean that mess up. We really can't begin to speculate. The first step, is to stop doing it, of course, that is what the ecologists keep saying, and the offenders don't stop doing it. So we can't really speculate too much about that.
LYNN: Why is it that other countries don't seem to have a pollution problem as much as we do?
SPIRIT: Oh, of course they do, in some places in the world pollution worse than here.
LARRY: Have there been any resent examples where a group of people on the earth plane have collectively brought about some sort of world wide change, through the power of positive thinking or Spiritual thought or. . .
SPIRIT: There are many changes that have happened within the material planes as the result of collective groups sending out their energy, their positive energy. We really can't sight a single incident, because they happen on a small level. Realize that there is change, every change makes vibration, and as that change comes together it meets a level. All like vibration coalesces and comes together. Very subtly the groups that are sending out the positive prayers, that vibration that is coming together is beginning to permeate the beings of the world. So, yes there has been some very real change, but very subtle, very gentle.
Many of your ecologists have done an awful lot of work to make the populace at large aware of just important nature is, how beautiful nature is also. How important it is to your survival, because if nature dies, if nature truly dies, then the world dies, you see. So they have done a lot, in very subtle ways, they have made much noise, and the progress has been very slow. They are beginning to get key people in key places to pay attention to them, and begin to realize just how important nature is, and that you really must take care of it. So yes things are happening, things are very really happening.
LARRY: If one is to continue their thought of free will, and to expand that, they can do essentially whatever they want, then why should one be concerned about the nature or the ecology.
SPIRIT: Because, if that dies, you die. Then you have no place to live, at least on this plane anyway.
LARRY: Would not your free will prevent that then from happening?
SPIRIT: No, not you as an individual, as one. That would take a lot of work, you have to agree in accord to effect any change, to preserve.
And you cannot change things simply because you will it, you have to use your power of dominion to make those types of changes.
LARRY: Thank-you Spirit.
Do we have a question?
LYNN: Is there any way that we can help the acid rain problem here in the states?
SPIRIT: The acid rain problem is a terrible problem. It can be helped through prayer.
LARRY: I have another question. Much has been written and said about the so-called shift of the axis toward the latter part of this century.
SPIRIT: Well, it's already happening, but its happening slowly. With the shift of the axis . . . everybody thinks that its going to happen quickly without warning, and zap it will be done. That is not exactly what is happening. It is happening slowly and your coast lines are naturally going to change. Your weather patterns have already changed. You have been aware of this for a good ten years.
LARRY: Should we be concerned?
SPIRIT: it's a natural propensity, it happens every 2,500 years or so. It's just that some axis shifts have been more violent than others. You have heard reports about the ocean is going suddenly flood out cities and things like that. Well that might happen, but it's not going to happen to the proportion that it has been written about. You are going to loose a lot of your coastal areas. You're going to find that you will have new coastal areas. But, that is already happening. Anybody that owns beach front property is loosing beach front property. Its happening, oh we don't know the precise rate. They are loosing almost a couple of feet almost every year.
LARRY: Would it be wise not to live near the coast? Specifically in California?
SPIRIT: No, are you worried about yourself being out there?
LARRY: No, I'm not worried.
SPIRIT: Well you know crazy things have been happening because of the shift, volcanos erupting, earthquakes and things like that, but no, we don't see any real danger, because you have a higher order, and your higher order is going to put you where you are supposed to be. You may find some unusual storms coming up out to sea. Things that are going to crop up suddenly that weren't on the weather pattern. But, we don't see any big problem.
LYNN: Could you tell me what will happen to the U.S. with the problem with radiation that we have?
SPIRIT: This is very difficult to speculate, because science plays some dangerous games. They do not particularly balance out formulas. If they continue their work, they would find that they have the means to neutralize what they are creating, but they do not take the math far enough. So, that is very hard to speculate, it depends on the minds that play the games.
Of course, many scientific discoveries are used for the wrong purposes, which adds to the devastation.
LYNN: The same as in politics.
SPIRIT: It's all political, dear, it's all political. Look at the star wars race. If the politicians put as much energy to world peace as they do to the star wars race and the need to defend themselves, you could do much move to advance your technology and save your planet from destruction. The destruction that does happen, takes place inside each country, not from outside influences of other nations. The destruction takes place because each country wants to defend themselves from the influences of other nations.
That hasn't worked either. You find the influence of the western culture spreading through Europe and the Eastern cultures. This only proves that people are people, there is no difference. They all want the same things, a quality of life that expresses an openness and honesty. If political arenas focused on that equality, then there would be little need for your weaponry.
LYNN: Can you tell me how long the U.S. will exist as we know it? If it will get better or worse?
SPIRIT: It changes every day, you just are not particularly aware of the changes because you live your daily lives. You take it one day at a time. If you really watched the world events, and keep up with current events, and stick your nose in around the White House, and into congress, you would find out that the America that you think, and know and love changes daily.
Progression Of Man Of The Material Planes
Excerpt From Class Transcript
Date: February 22, 1990
KEN: I am concerned about the over population of the Earth.
SPIRIT: The earth is not overpopulated.
KEN: Well the population level, isn't it kind of . . . Dominating . . . destroying the animal life forms and vegetation . . . beyond a certain point . . . that is not acceptable?
(Spirit was shaking my head no all the time he was talking.)
SPIRIT: Not really. You have the same amount of people now in your earth plane that you have always had. The people are using the land incorrectly. It's not the numbers of the people, it's the use of the land that is being abused.
You know, evolution has to happen, and technology has to happen, but you people use your technology in the wrong direction, in wrong ways. You have allowed technology to override the respect of the land.
BOB: If I hear you correctly, we have as many people on the earth as physical beings as we have always had?
SPIRIT: That is correct.
BOB: That wouldn't go with what I have read and heard about the number of people. The so-called body count of the people in this country and other countries, and they estimate so many people in the world at a certain point in history and they seem to differ a grate deal.
SPIRIT: Well of course that information differs. Who took their census? What about all the Africans, and all the Australians, and all the people in Brazil who live in the outback in the so-called uncivilized world. Who counted them?
BOB: Beats me.
SPIRIT: So there has always been the same amount of people. Give or take a couple of hundred thousand.
BOB: There are three and a half billion people on earth today and there were that many 5,000 years ago?
SPIRIT: That is correct. Exactly right.
BOB: I don't know if I want to believe that.
SPIRIT: You can believe or disbelieve that information, as you wish, that does not change the facts. What do you think the Vikings found when they came to America?
BOB: Probably Indians I suppose.
SPIRIT: And do you know how many Indians lived in this country?
BOB: No, I don't.
SPIRIT: There where well over 650 million, that man knows about, there are many more that were never counted.
BOB: I find that very difficult to believe that we are the same number of people on the earth. We live longer, at least that is what they say.
SPIRIT: Hum, check history. That is poppycock too.
BOB: They haven't had the longevity in the past.
SPIRIT: Oh, baloney.
SPIRIT: How old do you thin that George Washington was when he died?
BOB: I really don't know.
KEN: He was 68 or something like that.
SPIRIT: He was close to 90.
COLLEEN: I got 90.
SPIRIT: And Benjamin Franklin.
BOB: Oh, I didn't say the people didn't live long . . .
SPIRIT: Check your history. You will be amazed at the longevity of past man. Beyond that, much of your history is not accurate. You can't believe everything you read, it's not all accurate.
BOB: I'm sure that is not all . . .
SPIRIT: We are not trying to argue with you, we are trying to explain that you only have your material resources to go by, and your material resources are not always accurate. They are just not always accurate.
As material man of the earth plane evolve, you tend to keep more records. You get to be better record keepers, that is part of the evolution, but to what end are you keeping all those records. Do you understand what we are trying to tell you?
SPIRIT: And in the process of mind bogging nothings of keeping your records, you have lost respect for your earth, you have lost respect for your ecology, for so much that is so important. So now you think that know how many people live in the earth. Big deal, so you think you know something that you never knew before. But, from an ecology stand point, how well do you live? What is more important taking care of the Earth, or knowing how many people live here?
BOB: Taking care of the Earth.
SPIRIT: That is what we think. That is the way . . .
BOB: That doesn't mean that knowing the numbers is wrong either.
SPIRIT: No, it doesn't mean that, it doesn't mean that at all. What we exactly mean to say is; what difference does it make, or what good does it do to try to know how many people that live in the Earth, something that you have never had an accurate accounting of anyway, and probably never will, when you are all abusing your planet?
SPIRIT: Can't answer that, can you?
BOB: Well, I'm thinking of, the different thought process are going on here . . .
SPIRIT: There is nothing to think about, because it will be if you abuse your planet enough, nobody will be able to live here.
BOB: I think it would be less harmful to the earth with one billion people living in it than four or five billion if they were all doing the same kinds of things.
SPIRIT: Oh, no, no, no, you don't understand. The earth itself is a life giver, she is a mother, She is your mother, you are made of the dust of her ground. She nurtures her people, she nurtures everything, she nurtures you, and . . .
BOB: Can we not destroy her if we wanted to?
SPIRIT: Can you not destroy her? You are destroying her! She cries always, please take care of me, I'm dying. Do you listen?
Do you hear her cry?
BOB: Not in one way, but I do in another, I agree with ecology, and not destroying what we have got here. It is what is going to keep us alive.
SPIRIT: You still do not understand. She is your life, she is what gives you life, not what keeps you alive. You do not live on her, you live within her, nestled within her womb, drawing your life energy and support from her. Without her, you cannot exist.
KEN: Is she going to take steps to rectify the situation?
SPIRIT: Is mother Earth going to take steps . . . She tries always, but there are too many abuses and there are not enough people who listen.
JO-ANN: It is up to us to teach our children, it is up to us to change. We are the only ones who can save mother earth.
KEN: I was thinking more in terms of drastic earth changes.
SPIRIT: There are drastic earth changes going on, those are natural propensities, the shift of the axis and things of that nature. It is not a natural propensity to destroy your rain forests, to create acid rain, smog and air pollution, what is natural about that? To throw sewerage into your water ways, what is natural about that? To clog up your oceans with plastics and all kinds of things, what is natural about that?
The shifting of the axis is what you think a dramatic change, but it is not at all. Your oceans act as preservatives of that land, of that land mass. Every time the earth changes you have new fresh clean land. You are polluting your oceans, so how new, and fresh and clean is that land going to be?
BOB: We haven't done a very good job.
SPIRIT: No, you haven't. We agree with you, that doesn't help the problem though. The time has come to be aware, and for everybody to do their part. That is a whole other lecture. We have time for another question.
BOB: Will we do it, will we take care of the earth, or will we destroy it?
SPIRIT: We cannot answer that, that is up to you.
September 28, 1990. It has been discovered that the census taken this year is inaccurate. Whole neighborhoods in key cities of the U.S. were never counted. Other communities counted as many as five times. Some neighborhoods every third household were counted, and at that they were counted twice. So perhaps we are not as good record keepers as Spirit tried to indicate.

(More) Frequently Asked Questions
Q. You mentioned that meditation is a multi-level process. What are the levels?
A. The first level is to understand that you already know how to meditate, and have been able to accomplish meditation without any type of preparation or fan fair. Meditation is a natural result of focusing to one level of minds function. This happens as a matter of course when you are settled down and still for a while. This can be accomplished many ways. You need a focus to do this. Reading a book is an example of settling down and being still. As you become more settled into your physical space the text of the book you are reading becomes your total focus, if you are reading a novel, you can be transformed mentally into the scene you are reading from the book.
The next level is to understand the psychic connection between material mind and the psychic self.
The next level is devoted to stilling yourself and accomplishing complete silence mentally, physically and emotionally.
The next level is to understand the Unfoldment of the Spiritual self.
Q. What is the psychic connection between material mind and the psychic self?
A. The connection to the material mind and the psychic self is the Etheric body.
Q. What is the Etheric body?
A. Some disciplines call the Etheric body the soul.
Q. What is the Unfoldment of the Spiritual self?
A. The Unfoldment of the Spiritual self is a process of "Spiritual Unfoldment." Spiritual Unfoldment is a process that allows you to peel back the material conditioning you receive as a Spiritual being incarnated in material form of expression. It is much like the blooming of a flower, the petals folding open to reveal the center of the flower. It is a process of cultivation of our Spiritual nature in a truer sense of expression.
Q. What do you mean, "a process of cultivation of our Spiritual nature in a truer sense of expression?"
A. As we mature during our incarnation of the material plane, we have a tendency to lose site of the fact that we are Spiritual beings first and foremost. We allow our physicalness to take precedence over our spirituality. This is not an intended result of incarnation. It’s a natural propensity of "taking care of business" during incarnation. At some point of our material life we become aware that we seem to be missing something, something that is nameless, but very desirable. That desirable thing that we are missing is our connection and remembrance that we are Spiritual beings incarnated in flesh form, not a material body with a Spirit contained somewhere deep inside of us waiting to be activated.
Q. We make this connection to the inner self through meditation?
A. That is correct. Meditation is the key that unlocks the connection to the Etheric body. The Etheric body is the psychic body of man. The Etheric body is the connecting bridge between the material body of man and the Spiritual body of man. Meditation is finding the pathway to the inner Spiritual self.
Q. What is our connection to our Spiritual self?
A. The material connector to the Spiritual self is our psychic sensory system of function. The psychic body of function is our sixth sense and it is the completion of our material manifestation. The body that controls the psychic sense system is the Etheric body. The Etheric body is also the connector to the Spiritual body. You could consider the Etheric body as the bridge between the material body and the Spiritual body. Through ignorance man has tried to discredit his own intuition. Some religions call psychic function evil and work of the devil. Others just call it silly superstition. However the sixth sense of man has never stopped its functions and leads to the "Spiritual functions," the seventh level of our capabilities.
Q. Where does study of this type start?
A. This type of study has already started as it is an inherent quality of man to search for his Spiritual connection. This is the reason this type of Spiritual reading material is available, and the reason you are attracted to this type of information, so you are already on your Spiritual journey. So there really is no formal starting place, individually we all find our own starting place.
There are many types of study that have been developed into programs or pathways of study, yet there is not one specific place to begin, it’s all a matter of choice. I believe the first step to this type of study is to recognize you are already involved in a Spiritual Unfoldment program in a natural course of living. Reflect upon the type of reading you already do, the type of reading material that attracts you. Become aware of where, when and how you study this type of material. Where, when and how you study are as important if not more so than what you study. As you attune yourself to this information about what you are naturally attracted to teaches you that all life is a great lesson learned in increments or phases of life. You also become aware of your spirituality more fully. Once that information is in place addressing where, when and how, I would have to say becoming comfortable with psychic abilities would be then next phase. There are many misconceptions about psychic abilities, what they are, how they function and how they are used, so much so, people often have a distorted concept of the function. Before we can become comfortable with our psychic abilities, I believe we need to have a better understanding of the skills, and a general idea of how these misconceptions become prevalent on the material plane. Learning facts of truth about psychic abilities automatically dispels the myths created about the function. Because there are a vast number of misconceptions about psychic abilities, Spirit channeled a series of booklets many years ago addressing these misconceptions. Amazingly after thirty years of teaching Spiritual Unfoldment I still find these misconceptions to be prevalent.
For these reasons I begin every new class with the series that Spirit channeled entitled "To the Skeptics the Psychically Misinformed." The misunderstood principles and concepts outlined in that series are still prevalent in mans mind today.
Q. What type of misconceptions about psychic ability do you mean?
A. Many people believe that psychic ability is a skill that only some people have, not all people. Others believe if you use your psychic ability too often, it will dry up and disappear. My personal favorite is, whistles, bells and gongs will sound when somebody has a psychic revelation.
Q. These things are not true?
A. No, they are not. Psychic abilities are the sixth sense of man completing our physical manifestation, so psychic ability is a natural function. Psychic ability is not a function that works sometimes in a hit or miss process. It always works. Because it is a natural function, most people are not aware of how they use it, and everybody does use it consciously or unconsciously. Because most are not aware of natural psychic ability in action, these myths are easily created, and they are somewhat easily believed. After all, if you’re not truly cognizant of a function, how can you know your using it, or misusing it. For example, do you have to check with your sense of smell to know its functioning? It just works unconsciously. Suppose somebody or a group of people told you your sense of smell was not working correctly unless you heard a buzzing sound in your ears every time your sense of smell functioned. You might think that information is nuts, but in a natural course of events related to the information you would begin paying more attention to the ability of smell. And amazingly there would be many people who would suddenly begin to report that this information is true. They would report that it is a subtle sound, if you weren’t listening for it you would not hear it.
Q. So study of psychic ability is part of a Spiritual Unfoldment program?
A. Yes, it is important you recognize and understand psychic ability is a natural function all people use, and enjoy. It’s part of whom we are and how we function. Understanding and accepting the system of psychic sensory perception is the first step to reconnecting our material self to our Spirit self. Meditation is the key to the connection of our material and Spiritual selves, and the connection happens through the intuitive psychic sense system. When you have basic knowledge of the psychic sense system and how it functions will help you to meditate more easily. You have an understanding of the sensations you experience during your meditation period and the understanding allows you to relax more fully and go with the flow of the meditation period.
Q. How does the study of psychic abilities help us to meditate?
A. Meditation is a process of connecting to our Spiritual self. To connect to our Spiritual self we must be able to relax totally, mentally, physically, and emotionally. To be able to relax so completely without falling asleep we must have a basic understanding of our material self and how the material mind functions. Between the material functions of mind and the Spiritual functions of mind are the psychic functions of mind. The psychic function of mind is the connector between the material and Spiritual mind. So to connect to the Spirit mind we need to open up what may seem to be closed pathways. These seemly closed pathways are our reaction to our psychic abilities. These pathways have always been open, they are open at birth. Through much of our material training we become desensitized to the function of psychic abilities, so when we relax and feel them in action we interpret that sensation as strange, when in fact it’s a natural function. When we feel something we interpret as strange happening to us we automatically switch into an alert protective mode of safety. This safety mode is a stimulation of the physical mind sending alert messages to the physical body causing a rush of adrenalin and we are automatically taken from a state of complete relaxation to a state of combat defense readiness. Study of psychic ability helps to understand the sensations we experience during our meditation period allowing us to enjoy the sensations and reintroduce the sensation into or conscious mind. The acceptance of the "new" sensations allows us to unblock the pathways to the higher mind functions. Unblocking the psychic pathways through understanding what the blocks are or were is the key to helping us to relax and go with the flow of meditation gaining the highest and best from our meditation period.
Q. You mentioned the seventh level of ourselves, what is that?
A. The seventh level of our manifestation is our Spiritual self, the creative force within us that manifests our reality of life. The Spiritual self is the aspect of self that is bound to and controlled by universal law sometimes referred to as Spiritual law. Universal Spiritual law works in our lives constantly to bring into fruition our conscious state of reality. Some call the Spiritual self soul, others call it the higher-self.
Q. So the psychic body of man is the connector between the physical self and the Spiritual self?
A. Yes that is correct. Once material man can understand the connecting body of psychic function allows the connection to be made to the inner Spiritual self by bridging the "gap" between the two bodies of function. Some schools of thought call the Spiritual self the higher self.

Jeannette a. Meek,
Q. I have decided I want to begin a program of meditation. What can you tell me about meditation that will be helpful to me?
A. Meditation is a multi-level discipline. It is also an inherent quality that all people participate in consciously or unconsciously. Anytime you change your level of consciousness from one specific thought to another specific thought is actually a type of meditation. Yet it is not recognized as meditation. Also meditation is not as complicated as you might think it is. There are many misconceptions about the process, but more misconceptions about the result of meditation.
Q. What types of misconceptions?
A. The biggest misconception is that people generally do not think they are able to meditate correctly or properly. There is not a right or a wrong way to meditate. How you meditate is dependent on what you are seeking to develop through the process of meditation.
The second misconception is people think they don’t have time to meditate. The truth is everybody meditates at least once a day in some form.
The third misconception about meditation is that individuals do not believe they receive anything from meditation. The truth is you always receive a result from meditation. Your result is always a relaxed feeling, and a surge of energy. So the first step of meditation is to recognize that you already do meditate and you do receive a result from it.
The fourth misconception is that people think they experience weird events while meditating. The truth is you can only experience what you are ready for during meditation. It is only seemingly weird because it is something you are not accustomed to.
Q. How do I do meditation?
A. Meditation is not something that is foreign to you, in fact you do this already, in many ways. Also meditation is as complex or simple as you want it to be. For example, every time you have a day dream you are connected to the inner self by entering higher more refined state of reality. During that time of viewing the day dream you have changed your current state of reality to the vision, your material location fades away to an unconscious state of reality. The "day dream" relates to many of your everyday problems and the day dream itself is symbolic of situations you are dealing with, the ones that nag at you and you feel there are no solutions for. For example seeing yourself in a daydream of being on a remote tropical island is symbolic of how to overcome everyday stress in your life. This picture is symbolic of your need to take some time every day to be by yourself, and treat yourself with kindness and love. If you follow the advice your daydream conveyed to you it simply follows that you will be able to handle pressures of "everyday" life differently because you can see everyday life from a different perspective. You will remember to include your own needs and wants in your everyday life instead of attempting to fulfill demands everyone else requests of you.
Q. Is there a program or an outline of mediation that I can follow?
A. There are many schools of thought about meditation and what you should do and what you should not do during mediation, but again, meditation is an individual process. Also, each school of thought about meditation has an idealistic goal as the objective of the practice. I believe you can develop meditation with a conscious planned goal in mind, yet I know the higher self’s goal is what will be realized during a meditation session. The higher self is always the director and the teacher leading the conscious mind to specific realizations about the whole Spiritual self. The higher self is the most knowledgeable teacher you will encounter on a pathway of Spiritual Unfoldment. So meditation is an individualized process that can be assisted by the school of thought you are studying.
These schools of thought are tried and true for many individuals who think the same way. So you could be looking through many types of meditation programs till you find one that you agree in accord with. Yet, you already know how to meditate, and you have accomplished meditation many times throughout your lifetime
The simplest explanation of meditation is, prayer is talking to God, or your higher power, and meditation is listening to God or your higher power.
Once the request is sent out in prayer, meditation becomes listening intently to the sound beyond the physical sounds around you. When you make that connection to the higher power, any number of things can happen.
The time spent in the meditation period is inspirational and the activities that should or will take place during that time are revealed to you as you are ready to accept the guidance offered to you by the teacher within. When the student is ready, the master appears. That master is the teacher within. To connect with the master within is to open the pathway to the conscious development of our Spiritual nature.
Q. There are many pathways to choose from as a process of development of our Spiritual nature. They often become confusing. Is there a place to start ones Spiritual journey, or one level of study better than another? What are the differences between the different types of study? Is there a difference between the different types of study?
A. There are many pathways to follow as a course of study of spirituality, and it really does become confusing for people to decide where and how to start their journey. The best way of course is to follow your influences brought forth from the Spirit within, as your influence is the strongest teacher there is. Many people do that instinctively, and still find their influence does not fulfill the need for solid academic study of their spirituality. So for this reason many schools of thought have manifested themselves in the material plane. These schools of thought have manifested in three categories, one being religion, the second philosophy, and the third science. These levels are obvious in variances of application, yet they all speak to the material mind of man. They attempt to put an order to the exploration of our spirituality. Yet, they also create more pathways of exploration for man to walk down causing more thought, in turn the new thought takes a very simple concept or idea and makes it more confusing. So one way to explain the differences in techniques of Spiritual study is to say the pathway outlined by the academic study is for the material levels of mind, the so-called end of the pathway is the Spiritual progression. The common denominator of all pathways is meditation, and meditation is the real progression and where the real learning and teaching of our spirituality take place. So all pathways of Spiritual schools of thought lead to meditation, the pathways become the process of learning the approach to meditation.
Q. What is the approach to meditation?
A. The way to approach meditation is to logically begin building a study period devoted to meditation.
Q. A "meditation study period" this implies that I have to study something. I simply want to meditate. Could you be more specific?
A. Meditation is the study of mind on all levels. During our sojourn through the levels of incarnation we have divided our mind into layers. These layers are considered divisions of mind or levels of function IE., Conscious, subconscious, Superconscious, etc. The academic study of meditation is to gain understanding of the function of these levels of mind. This understanding is gained by reading about the different mind divisions and the expected performance of the levels.
The actual meditation period is a process that allows these levels to preform their functions without restriction of conscious thought. The academic aspect of meditation study is intended to allow the harmony of mind function. However, The harmony of mind function is a natural process that happens without the restriction of thought.
We have also divided ourselves into bodies of function, physical self, soul self, Spiritual self. These divisions help us to cope with our incarnation. Although we know we are not truly divided into these sectors of self, these terms help us to understand and explain our behaviors. Meditation is a process that allows us to integrate all these levels of thought of ourselves to one level of minds function.
Meditation is a specific type of relaxation that allows change of our current conscious state of reality to a higher vibrational state of reality that can last for a few seconds or many minutes. So meditation is one specific thing, or one specific definition, and that is to change states of consciousness to a higher vibratory state of mind. To get to a state of meditation at will is an individual process and it is also a progressive process. Processes that work to lead to a state of meditation for one individual may not work for another individual.
In a universal definition meditation is a process that allows the material self and the Spiritual self to connect to a space of one point of minds function. When you achieve this one point of minds function you enter a space of "peace that passeth all understanding," and that is the state of meditation.
So, developing a "meditation study period" simply means to set aside time for meditation and exploring processes to reach the benefits.
Q. What is mind?
A. Mind is the whole mind of function. The whole mind of function is the universal mind. This mind is not fragmented into aspects of self, or different aspects of function. Universal mind is what man considers to be God, as this mind is all knowing.

CHANNELING PERSONAL LESSON
FEBRUARY 25, 1988
BOOK OF KNOWLEDGE
PLACE AND TIME: WHITE LIGHT BOOKS
RAY: I Hear Spirit say, "The Book is open."
JEANNETTE: The Book is open?
JEANNETTE: SPIRIT TAKE OVER: The Book of knowledge opens and pours forth the words, but the words mean nothing unless you have the understanding, the inner vibration, the inner feeling, the capacity to interpret those words, not necessarily through processed thought, but, with your emotions.
The soul is a mighty powerful body. The soul has its own levels of progression and its own levels of knowledge and its own levels of understanding. In order for these powers, so to speak, and realize that we use the term powers in a loose sense, not in the way that you would interpret the term powers. Power is knowledge and wisdom from the lessons from previous times. This is how we mean Power. In order for the power to come to the fore of the conscious mind, it has to come first through the Superconscious mind to the subconscious mind. When you think, (while you are receiving in meditation or working at a circle) you restrict those flows of inner knowledge. You restrict that knowledge from coming to the fore of your conscious mind to be looked at. Notice that we do not say examined, we only say to be looked at. Once you look at that knowledge you can comprehensively understand what that knowledge is, we will try to rephrase this so that you will understand.
Once you allow that knowledge to make pictures in your minds’ eye, you can see the places that need surety, the places that need tearing down, you can see the limits, you can see the restrictions, but beyond that, you can see how you have restricted yourself. Each of you has a very, very knowledgeable soul. There is much Spiritual intelligence in this room. We are going to try over the weeks to come to teach you how to use this.
The fact is, that you have to learn how to use your voices. Your voice is the Key. Speak without thinking. If you evaluate those thoughts that come to you, (during meditation or bringing forth a message for someone else,) you are doing wrong, because you are restricting your messages. You are holding within your body the message that is truly intended to be brought to the fore, to the outer, to the center of the circle.
LES: Is it true that our reality speaks to us physically, in Physical signs?
SPIRIT: Your reality is what you have created, how can it speak to you in physical signs. Once it is created, you have to come to it.
LES: Does it act as an omen?
SPIRIT: There are pointers along the pathway that will show you the right direction. It depends on what you want to consider an omen. You can only meet what you have created, and you create through your comprehension of mind. Thought is the creative power. Thought is the power behind the thinking process. The thinking process is the picture, the picture that you wish to make a reality, when you stop thinking about it then thought pushes it out of your mind, and puts it in your pathway, the only thing you can do is walk into it. This is your reality.
Les: Is this why we shouldn't think?
SPIRIT: This is one reason at first stages of development you shouldn't think during meditation, Yes, exactly. Think of the thoughts you can think of in a half second.
Are they all good?
Your creating your reality as you go along. Now, creating reality is not as easy as thinking about it for a second or so. We talk to the mind who examines everything and play's the what if games. What if games to a negative propensity are highly dangerous. Because every situation you create in a what if process of though, when you stop thinking about that situation, you send it out and the only thing that you can do is come into it. So, you're not pretending anything by what if, your creating a reality.
LES: How do we cleanse our minds?
SPIRIT: first get rid of the worry, the doubt, the fear, the anxiety. There is nothing to fear but fear itself.
LES: How do you do this, how do you cast them out of your mind?
SPIRIT: Why are you afraid to begin with? What are you afraid of?
SPIRIT: Change? Change can only be for the better. Only be for the better. You have to broaden your horizons, you have to move with yourself. You grow constantly.
It's wonderful to sit and read a geography book, but is it not more wonderful to visit the place that you've studied about?
LES: Can you explain why emotions such as guilt and shame are useless emotions?
SPIRIT: They are such a waste of time, they are absolutely such a waste of time. Instead of worrying about what you did, and feeling guilty and ashamed, decide that you're never going to do that specific thing again and then go forth. Then you should ask those people that you did those things to, to forgive you. It's as simple as that.
Why do you hang onto what you don't need? It's a useless vibration. It teaches you no-thing, you gain nothing and you cannot grow when you've got all that in your mind.
LARRY: Is there such a thing as sin?
SPIRIT: Sin is a misnomer, sin within your plane is comprehended differently than the reality. Man has made sin anything that they need it to be to make people behave. Sin is the opposition of good. Sin is the opposition of God. Anything that opposes God is evil. Sin is just a name that you people use on your plane. Sin does not exist within our planes, we do not have vibration to support sin. But, there is opposition to the God force, and when there is an opposition to the God force that opposition creates matter, vibrational matter and vibration can only seek its own source. So the creator of that vibration walks into that matter, it attaches itself to himself, and it keeps him from the pure scanty of the God force. Do you understand this?
LARRY: Yes. How would you release yourself from that sin?
SPIRIT: By cleansing, by cleansing, by constantly, constantly cleansing the body with White Light. By constantly only thinking good thoughts. If you are only thinking thoughts that co-inside with the God force, then the matter automatically changes. It loses its density, and it melts away as it were, thus allowing the God force, or the God Light, or the Spirit Light, whichever term you care to use, to shine forth. As your Spirit Light comes to forefront, or seeps through the material matter, I guess that's how you would understand it, it becomes stronger and stronger until finally you give up your physical mass. It does not mean that you lose your physical body, it means that you lose the extraneous mass, the mass that does you no good in any way shape and/or from, such as shame and guilt.
KATHY: So the more that you release these emotions the closer you get to the God self?
SPIRIT: Exactly, it’s as simple and as easy as that. The thought that you create within your mind keeps you captive. It keeps you captive from living. How can you live when you are thinking about what you are going to do? How can you live under those circumstances?
KATHY: You will be protected? If I were to do this, If I were to reach the total Light that I know that I am capable of, then I would be protected.
SPIRIT: Yes of course, because your only enemy is your own physical body. You can only be attacked from within, you can only be attacked by yourself.
Do we have another question?
Bear in mind, people that a house divided always falls. What does that say to you?
You have two very real vibrations within yourself. You have the capability of always going with the God force, or you have the capability of always opposing the God force. But, when you are in argument with yourself you always fail. Don't you?
You think you want to be at point A, you know you should be at point B and you sit around fighting with yourself about whether or not you should go to Point a or point B. And what happens? Nothing. You go nowhere, you don't do anything. You sat around and worried, and you fretted, and thought about going to one point or the other point, but never have you moved. Is this not so?
KATHY: Does everyone have their certain time where they will be ready to go on?
SPIRIT: Yes progression is individual. Progression is governed by many things, but it's governed by your thoughts. Also, realize that your Soul body is an intelligent entity, it is not going to take you to any place that it knows that your material mind is really not ready to comprehend. That would be foolish that would be dividing the house. The soul, your soul, is not into dividing the house, it does not want to cause conflict within you because it does not want you to fail, ever.
KATHY: So what is it that wants us to fail.
SPIRIT: Your material, lesser, dense, base, carnal self. It is the only enemy that you have. THE ONLY ENEMY THAT YOU HAVE. That is the symbol of Satan, and Satan always fights with good.
KATHY: Is that the human part of you?
SPIRIT: When the Spirit fell, it divided into form. Human Spirit is always human Spirit. It will never be anything else. (However, the fallen) Human Spirit manifests into many levels and divisions of what you would call the Universe. Within the Universe there is contained the cosmos, the cosmos is discerned as levels of attainment. Realize that (the fallen) human Spirit has made these levels, or divisions, (called Cosmos) and these divisions have worked themselves away from God. How close is God to you? God is only a thought away. How far away from you is God? God is only a thought away. It is up to you to make the decisions as how you use your mind. Within the Universe it’s as easy as that. The thought that you create within your mind keeps you captive. It keeps you captive from living. How can you live when you are thinking about what you are going to do? How can you live under those circumstances?
KATHY: You will be protected? If you would be more able to do that.
SPIRIT: Well, yes. Realize that to reach harmony with your Spirit is, well you have many bodies to go through to reach harmony with before you reach Spirit harmony. If you would reach total mastery of the conscious (mind level) and the Spiritual (mind level) coming together (joining in unity) means that all those bodies between have been dissolved into Light, and it would be harder to fall from that level. Suppose you just reached harmony between you’re conscious (body) and your soul (body), then perhaps you could very really pass judgement from another area, and that would cause the fall.
You see, that would make you fall out of that pureness of that vibration.
KATHY: In other words you have to start at the core, and really change the core issues?
SPIRIT: You could look at it that way, yes. Depending on your judgement system and how ingrained it is, how deep it is. Yes, not all your opinions that you have formed come from this life time right now. As you dig deeper into your mind, you find that there are conflicts remaining from other lifetimes, past lifetimes, from other incarnations. In this lifetime you could uncover something (from that past) that truly amazes you that you just were never even consciously aware that (you hold nor do you consciously) share that opinion with that deeper aspect of yourself. So that would cause conflict too. (Because that deeper level of mind is part of you, and although you are not consciously aware of the effect of that thought in a cognizant way, it really still affects your evaluation system.) That would be something, that would be something, that would be one of those hard core issues that you would have to really balance out.
Do you understand this information?
Is there another question?
SIMONE: When you talk about centered, left brain, right brain. Can the left brain keep you from becoming centered?
SPIRIT: You have two very real energies within your body, you have Spiritual energy and you have physical energy. When you are talking about right brain, left brain that is essentially what you are talking about is physical and Spiritual energy. The process is, as you open left side and your right side you let those energies permeate each other, and you will feel them come around your body in a swirling sensation. You will feel them spiral through your body in a downward sweep. As that energy extends out into your Aura, it will work in a pattern of making figure eights, using the Chakra's as the center of that pattern as it penetrates the body and the Aura. That is part of the process of centering.
If you let yourself relax, and open the left side of your body first, and then open the right side of the body you will feel the energy begin harmonize in a swirling motion. Just feel the energies as water, just picture it as water within you, as you feel it penetrate the structure of your body that sensation is the "water" mixing together. You will feel the energies begin to permeate each other.
KATHY: Is it possible for people around you to influence you? If you're very close to your God self then . . . I can answer that myself.
SPIRIT: Then nothing can touch you.
We would like you to contemplate these words over the week. Much, much, much material has been to you. One misunderstanding is that your lessons is which is tangible on paper. These are your lessons. You have learned your lessons for this week. Take these lessons into your meditations and you will receive more knowledge connected with them.

Yesterday Leads to Tomorrow.
I started a Spiritual Journey. You may be inclined to ask when, where and how? I would have to answer in all honesty, I can't say exactly. Perhaps it started when I was thirteen and became a Rainbow Girl. I was told about, and experienced, the significance of the rainbow and wondrous events and journeys connected with its colors.
Perhaps it happened when I was much younger and became a Brownie and continued on through Girl Scouts and learned about the connected sisterhood of women.
It might have started when I amazingly gave birth, not once, but three times, each being its own miracle unto itself and allowing me to feel my unity with God. Talk about being Co-creators with God, I cannot think any event of my life helped me understand we are Co-creators with God more than that did.
Perhaps it happened long ago, in another time or another place, what we consider past life. Maybe my Spiritual Journey started there.
When you think about where the Spiritual Journey started, you naturally wonder about its ending.
Yet that was yesterday, and yesterday leads to tomorrow.
Today I know, the Spiritual Journey is never ceasing, because there is no beginning nor an end. I also know, during the journey, significant events happen for the sole purpose of reminding us all levels of life, no matter where we are experiencing it, or what form we are in, the whole of life is a Mystical Spiritual Journey through all levels and comprehension of Spiritual Light and Love. It is how we as individuals internalize and comprehend the journey that determines its quality and texture. The internalized quality and texture make the fabric of our lives. Our fabric ranges from the coarse gauze like substance to the finest silk. The different weaves of the fabric signify the change in the course of our lives. The courses of our lives although significant are simple.
The simple event of a Spiritual reading and attending Spiritual Unfoldment Classes were life altering experiences for me, yet it was destined to happen. These events changed the course of my life so totally and continued the flow and brought me to here . . . a web-site somewhere in cyber space emanating forth vibrations attracting you to see what I have to offer you.
Well I don't have much . . . well perhaps I do . . . I don't pretend to have answers to all the mysteries of life. What I do have, is a documented account of my Spiritual Journey I began to recognize in April of 1979 with a very simple Spiritual reading opening all the seemingly closed doors for me expanding through three decades and continuing into the new millennium. Yet the Journey has been happening and will continue forever.
This journey is unique, yet not different from other peoples journeys. I also have experienced the same apprehension, frustrations, yearnings and desires all Light workers have experienced. I also have floundered around wondering what it all means, how my journey has affected me, and others around me. I have also asked when did this start, will it end, and what happened to make me recognize it now instead of before? Why me God? Did I ask for this? Did I earn this? Is this really a gift? Can I give it back? What do I do with this? What is the function of my gifts, and the channeled material brought forth through my journey?
Well again, I don't have all the answers, but what I have figured out is I am one spoke in the wheel of Spiritual progression in this age of Spiritual enlightenment. Today through the miraculous connection of the Internet and cyber space all the Light workers of the world have the very real opportunity to connect and converge all in one place to bring forth the individual yet a united message of enlightenment. Each spoke in the wheel of Spiritual progress has an important plan, place, and function. A higher Divine force of Enlightenment puts each spoke in place completing the wheel.
So this is what I offer you, a glimpse of my spoke of the wheel with a sincere prayer my journey will complement your journey, and our simultaneous journeys will converge somewhere in the pathway.
In Light and Love,
