The Rainbow Bridge, A Healer’s Gift

It’s been a long time since I last felt inspired to write another article. My life has been in a constant state of flux over the last year or so. I think I really needed to take another step in my journey. I recently decided to conduct a workshop for our ARE group at our Spring Seabeck retreat next March. The name of my workshop would be the same as the title of this article. Viola….I have suddenly have something to write about again!

Some of my other articles have covered my spiritual emergence, another one covers my picking up my cross and becoming one with the Creative Force, or as Cayce said…one with God. This might sound a little pretentious, but I had thought at one time that this was ultimate destination. I now know that this was just another “stepping stone” for my own evolution and learning experience as a healer.

There are many of us already here where life has become much more diverse than just living solely in the three-dimensional world that Cayce describes as time, space, and patience. We really live in a much more multi-dimensional world made up of increasing higher vibrational energies. Cayce said there were eight. Much of my spiritual journey has been traversing some of these higher dimensions. I now am residing in the seventh dimensional frequencies, one that has been described as the “eye of God” or in other words ”not my will, but Thine.” I will remain there until I am ready to move up higher. There are higher frequencies and dimensions but I think Cayce was basically stating that there were eight human dimensions.

My journey started in my twenties and has had major turning points. One of note was while in my thirties I suffered a month long psychotic break. I now know realize that it was a part of my spiritual emergence. Once I got my feet back on the ground, my psychic functions had awakened. I could see with my inner spiritual “eyes.” I could see across distance and could connect with and see other people in this inner dimension. Another experience happened over a decade ago. While attending my first conference at the ARE in Virginia Beach, an Easter Sunday, I became illuminated internally with rainbow colored lights. This whole experience has taken awhile before I was comfortable with it, much less to talk about it. I have already written about taking spiritual mentoring classes through Atlantic University. It has not been easy finding other people who have had similar experiences. It was a gradual process of assimilation and integration to where I have come to be fully illuminated.

What has intrigued me was the rainbow colors and finding other references to them. The Native Americans reference it repeatedly but only in reference to animals using it as a bridge into the spiritual world. I use it similarly but from my own personal standpoint have been using it as a bridge for humans. Apparently there are also references to this bridge in some of the Scandinavian myths. The most guidance I have come across some of Barbara Hand Clow’s book, “Chiron: Rainbow Bridge Between the Inner and Outer Planets.” (1999, Llewellyn Publications, St Paul, MN)

My journey into our shared mystical journey has included my own Prometheus/Chiron myth. My healing journey really started taking shape as I too, was wounded trying to bring light back into our world. Prometheus was the one who stole fire from the god’s and gave it back to humanity. The god’s punished Prometheus and chained him to some rocks where vultures would nightly peck his liver out. Chiron asked to take his place and has since been describes as the “wounded healer.” It was a decade also spent trying to overcome my own suffering by helping others. Helping others was the key to unlocking some of my own inner mysteries and divine nature.

So in March I will start on another adventure. I am hoping that I can help others start making their own inner journey for themselves. I recently had a QHHT hypnosis session where I saw myself suspended between the material and the spiritual world acting as an inner bridge so others could gain access into this expanding spiritual realm. I also was given a glimpse of my own initiation at an earlier time and place of this healing bridge. Cayce says that the cause of all disease is the separation with the First Cause. I am doing all I can to help all others bridge this divide for themselves.

One the responsibilities of living in the seventh dimensions is that you are allowed to work with all the other souls who have already gained entry into these higher realms. The Christ said he could go to the Father; he also stated we would learn how to be able to more than he. I have asked directly entities such as Mother Mary, Mary Magdalene, the Father, the Son, and many of the Archangels for help. I see their love and light flowing down to whomever is requiring assistance and help. I am eternally grateful and humble for all their willingness to come and assist me.

There is a reading by Cayce that describes St. Paul’s conversion on the road to Damascus. 900-31 In essence it is where the superconsciousness mind of the Christ communicates with St. Paul’s subconscious mind. This is also similar how healing is preformed from some of these higher dimensional energies.

I think as embodied beings of light and darkness, it is up to each and everyone of us create an environment that will allow as to inhabit our eternal selves here while we are living on this earth plane. We have all been wounded in some small or large way. This inner healing process that Cayce refers to in part, is the “purgation of the soul.” It is releasing and surrendering up those energies that keep us all from the truly becoming what we were meant to be. Our love is grounded in the loving embrace of our Creator and Mother Earth. We are corpuscles of light finding our way back home, back to Love, Light, and Eternal Life. Thank you.

My Spiritual Emergence

“For all those who have or are suffering silently”

There’s been a chapter in my life that I have kept hidden from view. It concerns the trouble I have had with my own mental health issues. I know it is not necessary to include others in this chapter, but if writing about these things might help others; so be it. I’ve asked

for guidance many times over, and recently there have been others who have decided to come forward. Marsha M. Linehan recently had a New York Times article written about her personal issues with mental health.  (1) She’s now a respected therapist and teacher at the University of Washington. Another, Lauran M. Prato, wrote of her account in her book recently just released, “From the Inside- Out: Shattering the Mental Illness Myth. A True Story.” (2)

There has been a progressive understanding of…

Cayce and Consciousness

   “And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.”   Luke 9:23   King James Version

” In the beginning He was the Son—made the Son—those of the Sons that went astray; and though the varying activities overcame the world through the experiences, bearing the cross in each and every experience, reaching the final cross with all power, all knowledge in having overcome the world, and of Himself accepted the Cross… ”    262-36

I grew up in the raucous and sometimes tumultuous 60’s and 70’s having experienced many of the moments right along with my fellow contemporaries at the time. For me that was a time of music, Woodstock, the Viet Nam war, Kent State, Mayor Daley and the Democratic convention to name a few. My hair was shoulder length and a had something of a Fu Manchu mustache… One of the things that I took away from that period was a life-long interest in health along with an interest in higher states of consciousness. Both interests have survived and taken deep roots.  Many of us realized that the only real way we could effectively change society was to change our way of understanding who we were. Our state of awareness or our consciousness became the key. Many contemporaries at that time, Alan Watts, Baba Dam Ras, and Timothy Leary helped alter the landscape of how we thought of ourselves. There were others like Carl Jung and Abraham Maslow that were shaping my worldview…

Cayce said that, “The ability to be conscious of a thing—mentally—is the only manner through which anyone experiences anything.  272-4” That might apply to seeing an object or situation, but it seems to apply also to different states of awareness. It might mean that we need to recognize or discern different states of mind, e.g. a drunken state of awareness vs. an altered higher spiritual state.

Today there are presently a large number of people advocating a “shift” in our consciousness as the way to move forward. I too am learning this.  Many of our ARE members have already taken their own steps along this pathway. Many of the timeless values advocated by Cayce like compassion, kindness, and long-suffering have become part of the real spiritual foundation. This very foundation is becomes a necessary part of the structure that is essential to withstand many of the changes that are already occurring within ourselves and out in the physical world. At the heart of this shift in consciousness has been our ability to re-connect with our source, which Cayce calls the Creative force. Many are presently describing this shift from a 3rd-dimensional consciousness to a 5th-dimensional consciousness. I think in essence, much of this meaning is moving out of mental sphere and moving towards a heart centered consciousness…less of the head and more of the heart. We will ultimately need to master both parts of our natures, before we can move towards the “promised land,” which has been called the straight path.

Cayce has been quietly acknowledging different levels of consciousness all along. In my copy of, “The Edgar Cayce Companion,” (1) there are many, many references to consciousness. Here are a few.

“In the words of the Master Himself, “In my Father’s house there are many mansions” (John 14:2), many consciousnesses, many stages of enfoldment, of unfoldment, of blessings, of sources.”  2879-1

“That which is known in the earth as a three dimensional phase of existence with a five-consciousness of its existence. ”  5756-11

“How many dimensions are in this solar system? Eight…” 5755-2

Cayce also makes several comments and readings that reflect the relationship with one’s planetary sojourns one has around the solar system and the different dimensions and consciousnesses.  The earth plane is where we were tested to see if we have mastered the lessons enough to manifest those energies we were exposed to while we made these planetary sojourns.

“We find in the earth plane the three dimensions, in Venus the four, in Jupiter the five, in Uranus the seven—all of these; not as of planes as sometimes spoken, but consciousnesses—the ability to reason from certain activities.”    3006-1

I know this might be confusing at first, but I think as we learn to raise our level of consciousness, we will recognize the some of values of some of these higher states of awareness. There are a couple people who have been able to put this forth in a contemporary perspective. One is Meg Blackburn Losey, “The Secret History of Consciousness: Ancient Keys to Our Future Survival.” (2) Another person who has presented a fascinating account of this is Barbara Clow, “The Alchemy of Nine Dimensions: The 2011/ 2012 Prophecies and Nine Dimensions of Consciousness.”(3) Both Meg Blackburn Losey and Barbara Clow integrate this concept of light and sound energy to higher levels of consciousness and dimensions. They help us understand some of these newer concepts.  We are only beginning to understand what this “shift” may mean for us.

Many are getting a better sense of what it means to become deeply connected spiritual beings. Cayce seems to indicate that the 4th dimension is approached mentally. I experience part of this as our collective consciousness or unconsciousness where part of our collective past memories are stored. Barbara Clow says this might be where the akashic records are found. This energy field seems to collect and store all our thoughts patterns and energies from our common human history.  The 5th dimension seems where we become re-centered in our heart. Some describe this sphere where one begins to experience the essence of Divine Love; the inter-connected wholeness and true joy.  No matter what one ends up believing, there is no denying the need for more of an all-encompassing desire to return to Divine Love. No matter how far out intellectually I’ve resonated with the many things I have read, I’ve always need to come back to the Truth and the Light that is shed in the Cayce readings.

The readings at the beginning of this article have become the central focus of my own life. I’ve picked up my own cross many years ago and learned the lessons I needed to expand my own life in a way that has brought more joy, knowledge and power that has been promised. It seems almost unimaginable. I think we can all learn to articulate and expand our world to encompass the entire universe. It can be mastered. Let our Love and Light shine!

I’ve been a little reluctant to reveal too much of myself, but with some encouragement, I decided to explain some of the details that have helped shape my understanding of what I am writing about. Sometime, several years ago while at Virginia Beach, I attended an impromptu sunrise service on Easter morning during which I became illuminated with light. It has taken me years since to understand what had happened. Though I still feel like a newborn, I have been able to find other seekers who shared similar experiences through readings and study courses. I am now in touch with the Son and the Father through the Holy Spirit. That is part of what I have come to understand. The Cayce’s readings are an accurate description of what he calls the Creative force. I am in no way anything more than I ever was. I am still a gardener who needs to earn his daily bread and I make no assumptions about whom I am. I am also becoming more of a teacher/healer more than ever. I send my light and love out into this world to whoever I think may need it. I am responding to what I see as a need in my fellow brothers and sisters. I am hoping we can all become reconnected back to our source of love, life, and spirit. There are no short cuts and the way forward is difficult at best. The lessons need to be deeply embedded in our hearts and mind before they can become a permanent part of our collective Soul and Wisdom. Part of my writing experiences and guidance has led me to believe I will be writing other articles. One is on part of the healing needed to help others to open up to this Creative force and become a part of this interconnected whole, the 5th dimension.

The Christ consciousness is also part of this collective dream we are having. I’ve seen it as another real tangible state of awareness. It will continue to grow and expand here as we learn to share it with others. It is all a part of our Divine heritage and Divine purpose. Pick up your cross. I felt my own heart chakra open up and become illuminated last night while I was still dreaming this dream.

Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father. John 14:12  (King James version)

Quantum Healing…and Me

I want to express a new ideal that is gaining traction recently, though the word, quantum, is not new, especially in a new understanding of physics. I am not a physicist and don’t pretend to know anything about it except that it involves different levels of energy. I have been personally involved with healing for over a decade. In that short ten years I have created a healing space that is able to bridge the different dimensional spaces that for the most part, have remained hidden within us all. It started with me having no other choice except to reach out into some of these inner/outer dimensions because of my own wounded Chironic character. Chiron was a well-known and well-respected centaur that replaced Prometheus’s nightly suffering by trading places with him. Chiron is now known as the “wounded healer….” The famous lesson that can be taken away is that Chiron started healing others to lesson his own mortal pain. I too experienced the nightly episodes of my own wounded character, which slowly transcended into this “new” healing modality I wish to speak of.

As we all move towards the end of the Mayan character, our levels of awareness and consciousness are also transcending the old, outmoded ways of thinking and being. We are slowly making our ways back into our rightful sphere of influence and stature as “cosmic citizens…” We are becoming light and love…beings that are gradually navigating their way into another dimensional framework. The fourth dimension is a mental sphere where the collective unconsciousness/consciousness resides. The fifth dimension is the emotional centered heart consciousness. We are also moving into another age, the Aquarian age, and cosmologically, we are at the end of a greater sidereal year of 26,000 years. Our planet earth is now once again aligned back with the center of our Milky Way. As cosmic citizens, not only our earth is undergoing tremendous transformation, but we as individuals are too.  There are changes that are coming that not only involve our role as earthly inhabitants.  We are rapidly approaching an era of becoming inter-dimensional and also inter-galactic as well. What I mean is that there will be a time where we all can learn to transcend the normal limitations involved living only within a 3-dimensional world….we are also regaining an awareness of the other star systems helping us make this leap. Edgar Cayce said there were eight dimensions. I know it might be a stretch for most of us, but I recently read and experienced the Hathors, who are able to live in a higher state of pure consciousness in what they described as the ten, eleventh, and twelfth dimensional framework…the twelfth one was described as giving up one’s personal identity.

So what does this have to do with quantum…and inner healing? I have, for a long time, have been living in an intra-dimensional state that Cayce said was “becoming one with the Creative Force…” I can see into these inner dimensions at different times and have had, though somewhat briefly, experienced all these different dimensions. If the symbol of the “water bearer” is an accurate depiction of the Aquarian Age…there is an ocean of light and love that is being actively “down loaded” into our human operating systems. Many of our worn-out thought processes are being released. This is where I, and many others, have come up with using the word “quantum” to describe all the changes these energies have been having not only with us but Gaia, our Mother earth, our planet, as well. We are literally “shifting” the energetics of our planet, Earth; including the we, ourselves as well. This is what, I feel, is the real meaning of 2012.

The other side is what Cayce would call the “purgation” of the soul so we can transform and transcend into a higher dimensional light frequency…so we can lose many of these fear-based and controlling lower energy thought patterns and become Love, our true heritage and home.

       It’s has been said that our worst experiences have been given to all of us as a teaching tool to help us all learn who we truly are. Cayce calls this “long suffering.” There are many multi-dimensional facets that are part of this inner healing modality. One of the bigger ones is what is being asked of all of us to do. We are all being asked, with courage, to begin re-experiencing these all these inner wounds again, to not only relive them, but to see them from another higher dimensional framework. There is nothing in our human consciousness or inner sorrow so deep, that these higher aspects of love can’t redeem. In doing this, we begin to see and learn something about our own inner, true divine character. As we see the love in ourselves to forgive and release these sometimes horrible, life-altering wounds; we also begin to find our own inner capacity to free ourselves and love more openly and freely once again. It helps us to redeem our chosen life patterns and brings us more fully into this new age, where Love and Light will stand once again by our side.

Our Stories, Our Selves

Each one of us is a separately created and evolved person that has it’s own unique story to share with the One and All. We each personally reflect what choices and experiences we have all taken. We may think that is all we are, an inner composite of all of these choices and decisions. There is so much more!

It is becoming increasingly clear to many of us that this is only the smaller pattern that is only reflecting a greater pattern of which we are all a part. Each reality we experience is part of something greater. Part of my own individual reality started down this road of discovery when I first came upon writings of Carl Jung. What took hold of me in my early twenties was the concept of the process of individuation, the microcosm. This was truly a big blessing for me. It meant that my own life might have a greater meaning and significance then I once thought. The true greatness of this idea was that it pointed us towards a larger reality and inner meaning, the macrocosm.

A pattern has emerged within my imagination to help me illustrate how this process seems to be working. The pattern is a strand of DNA…it unfolds in several dimensions at once. The larger dimension is the inner relationship between the physical and spiritual reality. Whether or not one is aware of this larger pattern, each strand is operational while we are living here on this planet. On a smaller dimension, our individuality is asserting itself on a physical level so that our inner spiritual lives can unfold. Our spiritual side can grow apart or together with the physical strand because of our thoughts and actions.  Our inner selves can share and grow into a larger dimension depending on the nature of our actions and how they reflect back upon the nature of this greater reality.

There are many different teachings that help point this out. One example is the Biblical parable about building your house on sand or stone, a fitting tribute to the necessity of a solid foundation. Edgar Cayce acknowledges the same thing when he commented that one’s spiritual foundation be built “line-by-line,” “a little here, a little there,” and “practiced daily.”  Another facet of Cayce’s teaching was the adage that no matter what happens, God has prepared a way out. If one can imagine a series of intersecting, interconnected actions all moving forward in an ever-increasing spiral; the goal is the creation a more loving divine space within us. By connecting with that one small soul portion of ourselves, we can begin bridging the inner chasm between our mortal and immortal selves.

Now I am sure that some of you might be asking what this has to do with your own personal stories. Cayce says each of us represent a corpuscle in the body of our Creator. Once we are able to see past our own inner feelings of smallness and limitations, we become much more willing to accept the parts of ourselves that can help us recognize our inner greatness. We can become one with the Lord.  Our own individual stories will take on a greater meaning as we move forward. They may represent something in our past that we need to come to terms with or as a way of moving forward collectively. We are all interconnected. Another aspect is finding what our soul mission is. It could be anything, a vocation, a family, a religion or another spiritual pursuit. Things happen to us for a reason no matter how small and insignificant they might seem.

Right now as we speak, there is an ocean of love and light that is literally pouring down from the heavens. It is meant to strengthen our connectedness to that inner bridge, between all the strands of our earthly dimensions and the spiritual. It becomes increasingly important for all of us to pause inwardly to allow this light to enter within. Let our inward successes become the outward manifestation of our spiritual growth. Many of our choices will reflect what comes and what goes. Already there is much unrest in the world as we are all starting to wake up to these higher dimensions. We are no longer willing to accept the status quo and the rampant inequality that has caused so much suffering and inner blightedness to manifest.  Let our stories begin to share in the joys and the sorrows. We have been asking for the light and the love to help us all find our way back home. Every burden and sufferings can be given up into the ready embrace of the All Mighty’s love…everything.

Things are changing on many different levels. These higher frequency energies are changing not only the way we live but also fundamentally our societal structures that may no longer fit. We are changing. This has not been easy. Our rebirthing can start on an individual basis, but there are many among us who have already taken the necessary steps within to help others make similar transformations. A new wave has emerged. Our stories are merging into a higher vision that once seemed impossible and unimaginable.  Release what no longer holds any lasting value, breathe in and let these new energies into your own divine selves.  Once again, begin to reimagine your selves as divine sparks reigniting. Begin on another chapter of all our life stories that share in delight of our new forthcoming days…peace and blessings to all.

“What if, for one day, you treated every person you came in contact with as if they were the key to saving humanity? The petty differences and emotional disturbances you occasionally magnify would disappear, yes?”

“Here is a surprise for you; each person you meet on a daily basis IS the key to saving humanity! Everyone carries a piece of The Universe within their hearts…..treat it, and them, lovingly, respectfully and with the same care you show yourself. The beauty you find will always astound you!” ~ Creator (as transcribed by Jennifer Farley,  4/21/12 )

My Spiritual Emergence

My Spiritual Emergence

by

Gordon Yumibe

“For all those who have or are suffering silently”

There’s been a chapter in my life that I have kept hidden from view. It concerns the trouble I have had with my own mental health issues. I know it is not necessary to include others in this chapter, but if writing about these things might help others; so be it. I’ve asked

for guidance many times over, and recently there have been others who have decided to come forward. Marsha M. Linehan recently had a New York Times article written about her personal issues with mental health.  (1) She’s now a respected therapist and teacher at the University of Washington. Another, Lauran M. Prato, wrote of her account in her book recently just released, “From the Inside- Out: Shattering the Mental Illness Myth. A True Story.” (2)

There has been a progressive understanding of some of the elements of mental illness, as too possible etiological reasons…there was a popular yet mythological myth that the reason for schizophrenia was having an over-dominating mother. That was still a thought in college level courses I’ve taken back in the 60-70’s. Well I don’t pretend to know much about the causes of mental health issues. I know they occur more frequently than once was thought. I also know that the stigma that has become attached to those who are suffering has began to lessen as well.

When I was thirty-five years old I suffered a month long psychotic episode. There are a lot of details of that month that I needn’t go in to. I had been working regularly with never a hint of what might be in store from me. I had even worked in hospital psychiatric floors for several years while attending college. I graduated from college with a degree in psychology in 1971. I had been devoted to a spiritual path for ten years but with out any formal discipline of meditation. I had also begun to see fleeting glimpses of a feminine spiritual energy that would come to me.

An acute psychotic episode was exactly that. I remember going to a restaurant to talk to my employer at the time and I remember walking out and everything just changed. It was a completely alienated world that I would inhabit for the next month or so. It was not a good feeling or comfortable. I thought lights that would chase me around the city at nights were pursuing me. I thought alien entities where trying to take and inhabit my body. I seemed normal on the outside, yet on the inside everything had an Alice in Wonderland feeling to it. I ended up taking my money I was saving and took off on a journey from Washington and down the coast to California. I would have nightly visions about where to go and I’d be off. None of the people I ended up visiting where aware of my inner turmoil. Eventually, the energy, which had propelled this acute episode, started dissipating and I started feeling my life force ebbing away. Through a fortunate turn of events, I was able to get admitted to a hospital in San Francisco and get the help I needed. The medication I received helped end this bizarre episode. I remember being overcome with gratefulness. I felt I could have easily ended up homeless. It took awhile regain my footing emotionally, but I ended up being able to quickly start to regain my normal senses.

Edgar Cayce talks about health as a cooperative balance between all spheres of mankind’s existence. The mind, body, spirit, and soul all have to create a mutually cooperative balance if inner health and equilibrium is to be achieved. I realized how tenuous and fragile this balance can really be. It can be rather frightening to feel one’s own mind start slipping away.

I was able to recover my senses and well being over the next year or so until I began to feel more grounded and connected to the life I had. I was able to work again and the fears of another episode begin to fade away.  There were, however, some lingering effects. They were two fold. One thing I begin to notice is that after this episode past, my own psychic channels began to open. I was more in tune with what other people were thinking. I, also at the same time, worried that people would never take me seriously again, you know… “the crazy one,” if I let them know what I was thinking.

Let’s move forward…twenty years have since passed and I’ve been regularly employed. Through another fortunate event, I started taking some courses through Atlantic University, the educational side of the Association of Research and Enlightenment in Virginia Beach. I graduated with a Spiritual Mentoring certificate a couple years ago. There were two courses that I took in addition to the require courses that were directly related to the experiences I had. One was: HMT 540, Mysticism and Mental Health. The other one was: AS 501, Transformational Astrology.

Mysticism and Mental Health helped me put another face on the difficult aspects of mental illness. Kay Redfield Jamison’s book, “Touched with Fire,” (3) talked about some of our most noted writers and poets, flirted with there own mental health issues throughout their most creative periods. There seems to be a statistical link with many of us between being able to be highly creative and having to deal personally with episodic periods of mania or what ever.

Another important part of HMT 540, was the link that Christina and Stanislav Grof, M.D. made to mental health issues and “spiritual crisis.” Their book “The Stormy Search for the Self,” (4) was part of this. It seems as if there is a link made between one’s emerging spirituality and the disruption it can cause to one’s mental equilibrium. In Laren M. Prato’s story, she talks about mental health providers being in the dark as to the true causes of some of her issues. She was forced to undergo time in a mental hospital because of what she was undergoing mental and emotionally. One of the more important facts of Prato’s personal account is the additional information in her appendix at the end of her story. This is where the story really begins for me because it talks about the DSM-lV having a new diagnostic category called “Religious or Spiritual Problem.” This is the lasting legacy possibly started with the Grof’s work spent over a lifetime trying to re-educate other mental health professionals about the very nature of this classification.

The other class: AS 501, Transformational Astrology, introduced me to the writings of Jeff Green, “ Pluto, The Evolutionary Journey of the Soul, Vol. l.” (5) There is much to be gained by reading some of these astrological writings. Green’s work touches upon some of the transformational aspects that this potent planet has. Here is some of my earlier work I did in writing a paper about this and it’s effect that it had on me.

“Pluto opposed to all planets in llth House, 1980-88: I think I may have struck an internal mother lode on this one. Could this actually account for some of the reasons that I had a “spiritual emergency?” To the best of my recollection I was 34-35 years old. Pluto was in the 11th House between my ages of 31 to 39. Here again I will be referring to Jeff Green’s description of Pluto. ‘individuals who have Pluto in the Eleventh House or Aquarius have been learning to break free from crystallized and outmoded forms of self-definition as reflected through the composite effect of society, parents, friends or anything else…the evolutionary intent has been to shed the skins of the past…they have been learning to resist becoming shackled, conditioned or defined by the customs of society…they have been learning to view themselves outside the confines of time and space…these individuals have also learned to sever all attachments that prevent further growth or freedom to explore new ways of discovering themselves…'(p. 199).”

There is one more aspect that seems worth mentioning here. It is a very personal note that seems to cap off this whole experience for me. One of the assignments I had while working on the Mysticism and Mental Health course was having the pleasure of writing a paper on Teresa of Avila and St. John of the Cross. Three of those books I read for that that course was translated by Mirabai Starr. I had an opportunity to meet her in Portland about a year later. The subject matter came up at the end of her talk about “spiritual crisis or emergence.” There was someone who voiced some skepticism about whether or not that was real or not. I remember coming strongly to the defense as to the validity of that or not. That very night I woke up from a dream that I had that I had been incarcerated in an insane asylum in a previous life because some others thought that I had become to “otherworldly.” Now, I have become not afraid of what others think about me…no more fear!

Now, almost thirty years ago since that initial time, I have become grateful for that fearsome experience. For those of us who are more able to live and experience other dimensions daily, this may just represent what our inner life may be evolving into. It’s been a long time now since I too, have stopped living in a world defined as just in time and space. About seven or eight years now I have become spiritual illuminated. I have written about it in some earlier articles. That portal that may have started opening with my spiritual emergence may have needed something of that nature or magnitude in order to evolve. Edgar Cayce has mentioned many times over to use each experience as a “stepping stone.” I now am able to helps other evolve beyond their own present inner spheres of experience in order so that they too might know more of their own personal spiritual soul and the creative forces which help shape them. It is that Divine link which we all share with each other and with our Creator. Thank you!

Healing through the Akashic Records

Healing through the Akashic Records

Author

Linda Howe

by

 Gordon Yumibe

The journey of a seeker usually means a solitary journey or path that must be taken by one’s  own self. It gives the individual seeker an ability to see for themselves the many merits or not of various teachings that are being presented as such. Once the path being evaluated is recognized as worthwhile, the individual must act, ultimately by him or herself.  Many times it is met with many, many trials that must be faced and mastered before the Truth will emerge. There really doesn’t seem to be any other way.

The initial attempts help create an inner fire or determination to a point where nothing but the truth will ever quench one’s inner thirst. Many times the very ones we wish to help end up wounding us.

Linda Howe has written a new book that perfectly resonates with the many truths that my own individual life reflects. It seems that her life of searching and discovery parallels mine on several different levels. I particularly like Section Three, “Our Sacred Wounds as a Pathway to Peace in Our Relations with Others.” We seem to have been able to come to the same passageway that speaks some of the same inner truths. She talks about her own personal breakthroughs into the spiritual realm that have helped her come to terms with her own life, her struggles, and her insights about this quest or healing journey we both seem to be making.

My life has also included personal breakthroughs into the spiritual realm and my own attempts to rectify the many, many wounds I too have had to endure. I have written other articles about this in other formats. It seems as if fate has led me back into Linda’s territory with her healing work through the Akashic Records.

For those of you who might not be familiar with the Akashic Records, they are supposed to be the repository of every created beings life story, from the moment of creation. Edgar Cayce was well known for his ability to travel to this Hall of Records while in a trance state. Many of his readings were the result of people seeking cures for physical ailments. There were many other readings for a wider variety of questions that have to do with one’s own spiritual growth and one’s own world viewpoint. By being able to find and access this storehouse of wisdom and love is a way to help each and every person begin to unlock the door to the many mysteries of ones own life. It also helps one face the fearful ramifications that come up when confronted by one’s own inner wounded ness. Linda and I have both come to realize that the true significance of facing these issues can be used as to create an internal bridge back to our inner Divinity, a passage way. A passageway created in order to help serve others.

I think there are many dimensions at work here. One thing that I think is key here is where the seeker discovers through experience, that one’s own pathway is blocked because of an inner obstruction, a wound. I’ve heard a long time ago that is compared to a Gordian knot, something that internally resisted and fights to the very end any attempts to help unravel it’s inner mysteries. It seems so unfair to the many of us who are facing this very dilemma need to face up and experience the same painful experience for a second time. Cayce has already stated somewhere that ultimately the reason for our diseases was the separation that we have back to the Source. Part of this adventure is to learn something about our Divine heritage, to reconnect with this inner source of love and life. Another part seems to be able to learn how we must be all begin to heal ourselves, so we can regain our Innocence and our Oneness.

Linda states so simply, directly and eloquently how we need to create a safe non-judgmental space through our work in the Akashic Records. It is a beginning to unravel our own “Gordian knot.”  Everything can be transformed. We create a pathway where these healing energies can create a bridge back to our Oneness. We learn to trust this process to a very real point of not being too phased or frightened of what comes into our awareness. We are able to release more and more of our inner wounded ness. We forgive. We become lighter in our very being. We regain the senses of our Divine nature; we love and learn to live in gratitude, grace and gratitude for what we have learned.

There was a movie made in 1968 that illustrates some of our Divine nature and it’s healing effects. The movie was, “ 2001, A Space Odyssey”, by Stanley Kubrick. Towards the very end of the movie, David Bowman the astronaut, finds himself as an aging old man laying in bed before which one of the monoliths appear in front of him. As he reaches out to it he becomes transformed into an embryonic baby floating peacefully back towards Earth. “It’s full of light!” Whenever I try to illustrate to the uninitiated what it’s like to become living in an illuminated state, that is what comes to mind. We become reborn, younger, innocent. The Akashic Records is just one of the many lights we can learn to access for our own growth, spiritually as well as healing.

I mentioned earlier that I had tried out Linda’s prayer method to gain access for myself. I was excited when her first book came out. I have spent several years obtaining a Certificate of Spiritual Mentoring through Atlantic University, the ARE’s educational branch in Virginia Beach. I had been creating my own pathways into some of my own wounded character. Her writings and practices meld quite nicely into this format I have created for myself. Some of my transformation and healing have been patterned after the Saturnian/Uranus/Chiron passageway, the “wounded healer.” As I continued on my own healing journey I’ve been given a second chance to begin using the energy of the Akashic Records again. They are like a “muscular bubbling brook” that is tumbling down into Earth plane for our own healing. Like the monolith, there is a healing sphere of many influences that is presently surrounding our physical planet that is shaping and transforming our lives and world as we speak. All we need to do is to learn how we can all help to restore our brothers and sisters natural state of unity, to become Love and Light unto each other once again. Peace…

“He leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul:”

23rd Psalms, KJV

Note:

I agreed beforehand to write an article after reading her new book. I have no financial stake and have only wish is to be able to share my own thoughts freely. Thank you for your understanding!
