Raising vibrations to help humanity
We here at Earthchangers College have weathered many lessons learning about metaphysics. The word metaphysics is a compound word consisting of meta- (meaning beyond) and physics (meaning the science that deals with matter, energy, motion, and force). The use of the word metaphysics here means beyond the physical realm (though dictionary.com states it was a misinterpretation back when it was translated after 70 BCE by Latin writers; however, it works for us).
Metaphysics includes, but is not limited to, the unseen realms of angels and spirits, as well as higher dimensions and their corresponding vibrations and life forms. The information spans many religions throughout history, including what is known as the new age movement. We have researched and examined much through the years, and this discussion links to the ones we found to have the most value (listed near the end).
Regarding channels, most appear to be fluff, and too many seem to emanate from "Script Central," with the exception of some of the older channels for Arcturian and Pleiadian messages, which appear valid. But with any channel, messages are filtered through the human personality and can never be one hundred percent accurate. We've read eighty percent accuracy is the average.
While our schoolhouse lessons here on Earth continue, it is time to share what we have gleaned so far. I will keep adding links to this blog, as I find them. Consider this discussion the overall Syllabus. A new discussion will be started for each book, or author (if multiple books), we examine and discuss.
We hope you will enjoy the experience and learn much, for the end goal is to inform and expedite your spiritual path. What is listed here is what I used to bootstrap my own spirituality. I started as a disillusioned Christian. If your Christian beliefs are preventing you from delving into a new frontier, then please read my blog: Christianity: You Say Good-bye, I Say Hello. Be sure to read the attachment.
In the course of running this ning, I stumbled upon sources indicating earthchanges were being caused by the "Ascension." What was that? I wondered. So, I immersed in new age philosophies to find out. There were a few scattered gems, but I still didn't feel like I had "found it," it being a complete body of truth that was understandable to the uninitiate. With the discovery of Paramahansa Yoganda's work, I think I have. If not fully, then a major stepping stone.
But, also note, we don't necessarily believe every resource here is the whole truth, but there is truth contained within these references, some more than others. Accept only what resonates with you. Because, after all, each path is personal. What I needed, maybe you don't. Maybe you'll need additional resources, and you'll be led to what you need.
Protection is a vital requirement when doing spiritual work. Negative energies can interfere with your meditations and interfere with your spiritual reception. Before you start a meditation session, invoke protection in whatever way suits you best: pray, visualize a white pillar of light, ask your Higher Self for protection, whatever works for you. If you don't know how, here are several links for you to consider: Spiritual Protection Techniques.htm, Protective Pillar of Light.
Meditation is a key basic requirement. You must become skilled at it. This is how you contact your internal Knowledge, the Holy Spirit, Christ Consciousness , Higher Self, Superconscience (aka Dolores Cannon's "subconscious"), however you may label it. It is your vehicle to God, the God connection. Anything outside of you is not "It." There are other things you should do in conjunction with meditation, mentioned further down. These things will assist your quest immensely.
First, if you don't already know how, learn to meditate. Meditation is a method of changing your consciousness, from lower self consciousness to Higher Self or Christ Consciousness. There are many sources on the internet. http://in5d.com is one that has many articles pulled from around the internet. Just type meditation into the Search box on the in5d.com website.
Here are a few links to give you more information about meditation:
As you become skilled in simple meditation, and read the books and other sources in the Resources section below, you will learn more techniques.
How to do simple a meditation:
How to overcome the six biggest obstacles to meditating: How to Overcome the 6 Biggest Meditation Obstacles. Some of the benefits of meditation, in addition to being an important component of spirituality, is relaxation.
Second, improve your diet. Spiritual exercises don't work as well, or at all, if you are poisoning your body with the typical western diet. In fact, your physical health is the rock foundation on which you build your spiritual house. Don't build it on sand! Read How to Raise Your Consciousness & Vibration Through Diet.
Some of the general items to change is: give up dense meats like beef and pork; get away from packaged foods that contain additives, preservatives, artificial chemicals, MSG; GMO products; synthetic sweetners like Aspartame (Nutrasweet), Splenda (Sucralose), Saccharin, etc.; sugar in all its forms: cane, raw, syrups, fructose, sugar alcohols (ends in -ol, such as mannitol, xylitol, etc.) beet sugar, and such. The sugar alcohols, while being considered "sugar free" will have you eating too many foods that are wrong in other ways, so just best to stay away from them.
If you need to lose weight, you should because not only does it affect your health, it makes your body denser and less able to vibrate at a higher frequency (which is the overall goal, as well as a sign of increasing spirituality). I found the South Beach Diet (SBD) by Arthur Agatson, M.D. (a cardiologist who developed the diet to help his heart patients) to be exceptionally sane and effective. I lost a lot of weight and felt terrific. I recommend this as the next book you get. Link is in the Resources list below.
Once you achieve your desired weight, consider a diet weighted with more vegetables, especially raw vegetables. Listen to the message in this link. I tried going vegetarian but get lightheaded if I don't eat a little meat about three times a week. I use milk and eggs as meat substitutes, as well as beans. Diet for a Small Planet (in the Resources list below) gives you insight into how to combine beans, rice, and dairy to get complete proteins. So, use your common sense.
We all have a "dark side," the place where repressed negative emotions live, and you need to get on a program of working through them. Cameron Day has a beneficial system that I found to work well. Level 1 is free, and Level 2 is moderately priced. He now has a Level 3, but it's pricey. His website is at ascensionhelp.com.
In a QHHT session, you will most likely contact your "Higher Self" (which Dolores Cannon calls the subconscious or SC -- not knowing what to call it at the time -- though in reality supraconscious is more appropriate. See What is the Supraconsciousness?.)
Fifth, get educated. After spending several years investigating new age and other philosophies, I came to the conclusion that (for the most part) they ranged from whipped cream to downright mis/dis-information, and too many appeared more commercially motivated than spiritually oriented. It's a veritable minefield. Hence, in large part, the reason for this course, which is a road map. It's not the only road map, of course. More could be on it, and if I find more, I'll certainly post it.
Once you get the basics settled, start reading the spiritual resources listed below. These resources have proven their worth (at least to me). There is no one book that contains all the answers. Read them and see what resonates with you. After you've finished reading the Resources, you will have a foundation with which to surf the internet yourself and find other sources and be better able to judge their merit. An important key in learning is having something with which to compare another thing to. Without that base of knowledge, anything can make sense, but not necessarily be true. I've learned that lesson and can spot likely misinformation easily.
It's helpful to revisit the books in a year or so. As you become more educated, you will understand things you missed the first time through. You can start with any resource that captures your interest. Not all have discussions going at this time but, if they do, there will be a ning link to a discussion forum. This is the classroom for that particular book or resource. This program is designed for people to enter it where their interest or experience level dictates. So, if you want to get one started, email me and I'll set it up.
Have a good journey! As St. Francis of Assisi (1121-1226 a.d.) said: What you are looking for is what is looking. May you find what you are looking for ... your immortal Self! And then, learn how to ascend out of the karmic cycle of rebirth.
The resource is the teacher, the ning link to a discussion forum is the classroom.

The Power of Now, by Eckhart Tolle (1999)
This book is another game changer, like QHHT. You are introduced to the concept of the egoic mind. It's much more than being puffed up with pride. Until you can differentiate between it and your true self, that critter is running your show. Learn how to spot the enemy and keep it from ruining your life. And the horrifying part of this knowledge is that every person on this planet has one! No wonder life on Earth is hell!

Inner Christianity by Richard Smoley (2002)
This book gives a general grounding, and surprising look, into what's known as Esoteric Christianity, surprising because glimpses of what is considered "new age" today is seen, plus some exciting insights into mysterious bible passages.
"This book is not an attempt to sell Christianity, nor is it meant to bring straying believers back into the fold. It is meant to suggest that the universal truths of esoteric knowledge are expressed just as much in Christianity as in other traditions" (Kabbalah in Judaism, Sufi in Islam, etc.)

The Talmud of Jmmanuel, ed. Edward "Billy" Meier. Translated, The Teachings of Jesus. This is from a scroll discovered in a tomb in Jerusalem. It was partially translated from Aramaic into German and sent to Billy before the translator was assassinated and the scrolls were destroyed. With no original documents, it could be considered a hoax. However, a well-educated scientist took an interest in it and spent six years researching it and concluded that it was not a hoax, but in fact, could well be the proto-type that the gospel of Matthew was drawn from. The differences between the TJ and the current gospel of Matthew are found mostly in redactions (additions, subtractions and word substitutions) of material that Pauline Christianity would find heretical. The chances of this document being a hoax, however, are astronomical because of the points of agreement and even verbatim text the two share in common. What is found is that Jmmanuel (Jesus) has a lot in common with today's "New Age" beliefs, when his message is drilled down to its core. This is definitely a worthwhile source to study.

The Infinite Way, by Joel S. Goldsmith (1947, 1956)
Marilyn at onenessofway.com studied this system, which is where I learned of it. His website has lots of tapes/CDs for a price. The book is available used on amazon.com. Here is the blurb from amazon:
"Now considered a spiritual classic, The Infinite Way was Joel Goldsmith's first book. After its publication, Joel said that he was no longer a man with a message, but a message with a man. Joel introduces The Infinite Way by saying, "In this small volume I have written the spiritual truth as I have gleaned it through over thirty years of study of the major religions and philosophies of all ages... Be assured inner peace will come as one turns to the spiritual consciousness of life, and an outer calm will follow in one's human affairs. The outer world will conform to the inner awareness of Truth. The authority for all of this revelation will be you, as you yourself experience this change within and without."
"The Infinite Way is filled with the spiritual ideas and principles that are the foundation of The Infinite Way message. Goldsmith inspires, and possibly surprises, the reader with statements such as Immortality is attained in proportion as personal sense [the five senses] is overcome ... and that can be achieved here and now; Spiritual illumination enables us to discern the spiritual reality where the human concept appears to be; and To many, the word Christ persists as a more or less mysterious term, rarely if ever experienced by them. This we must change if we are to benefit by the revelation of a divine Presence of Power within us. Jesus told his disciples that they, too, are the Light of the world. In this book, Goldsmith gives the reader the richness of the spiritual principles that constitute the message of The Infinite Way.
"Readers will find the chapter Soul to be one of the most illuminating on that topic in spiritual literature, and the chapters on meditation, prayer, and supply will give the reader a fresh, new perspective on those timeless subjects. Joel himself said that the chapters The New Horizon and The New Jerusalem are two of the most important chapters in the Infinite Way writings. The section Wisdoms of the Infinite Way provides a collection of more than 100 short statements of spiritual wisdom that came to Joel Goldsmith in meditation. Study the Wisdoms earnestly, says Goldsmith. Live with them day in and day out. Meditate on them and they will open up a way before you the way of fulfillment.
"Goldsmith chose to put this quote from Lao-Tze at the beginning of the book: There is no need to run outside for better seeing, nor to peer from a window. Rather abide at the center of your being; for the more you leave it, the less you learn. Throughout the ages, this one message has withstood the test of time and continues to ring true today seek -- the answer is from within, and you will find the Truth. This is the message in The Infinite Way, and it has helped millions look inward and find the peace that passes understanding."

FIRST-PERSON ET CONTACT ACCOUNTS
Co-Evolution, by Alec Newald (1st Ed. 1997, 2nd Ed. 2011)
A first-person encounter with a race of ET's. I can't say for sure it is true; however, an argument in favor of it being true are things mentioned in this e-book that I've encountered in my recalls/past life experiences), that are noted, which act as a confirmation of things normally not confirmable.
Co-Evolution, by Alec Newald
If you determine Mr. Newald's account is not true, it still does not negate the existence of extraterrestrials. Consider this NASA image (one of many), which I pulled from the NASA website:
Or consider the findings of a team of Spanish astronomers.
Also, consider the knowledge recovered from abductees and others via hypnotic regression therapy, in the next section...
"RECOVERED KNOWLEDGE," PAST LIVES, HIGHER KNOWLEDGE:
Quantum Healing Hypnosis Therapy (QHHT) (Researched since 1979)
Past lives recovered using Dolores Cannon's QHHT regressive hypnotherapy is a vehicle to contact your higher self (what she calls the subconscious) and find your life purpose and get your questions answered. See this blog.
Read any or all Dolores Cannon books, available used at amazon.com. If you are interested in past lives, the best ones to start with is Five Lives Remembered, Between Death and Life, The Custodians, then go into the Convoluted Universe series. 3 Waves of Change and the New Earth contains lots of good information. Her newest (and first post-mortem) book is The Search for Hidden Sacred Knowledge was released in Jan 2015. And Book Five of the Convoluted Universe series came out in August 2015. There are a few more to come.
Other books she refers to frequently are Keepers of the Garden and The Legend of Starcrash. She has a book called Jesus and the Essenes, and it's sequel, Walking with Jesus, which contain recovered lost knowledge from her sessions pertaining to Jesus. In the first one, she does a regressive session on a personality named Suddhi, who was an Essene and teacher of Jesus. It is a page turner. If you are interested in Nostradamus and/or earthchanges, she has a series, Conversations with Nostradamus.

The Works of Carlos Casteneda
The Story of the Essene Gospel of Peace (1928)
Translated by Edmond Bordeaux Szekely
In Four Volumes - Volume 1
It was in 1928 that Edmond Bordeaux Szekely first published his translation of Book One of The Essene Gospel of Peace, an ancient manuscript he had found in the Secret Archives of the Vatican as the result of limitless patience, faultless scholarship, and unerring intuition. [My first question is how did he gain access to "secret" archives of the Vatican?]
This story is told in his book, The Discovery of the Essene Gospel of Peace, published in 1975. The English version of Book One appcared in 1937, and ever since, the little volume has traveled over the world, appearing in many different languages, gaining every year more and more readers, until now, still with no commercial advertisement, over a million copies have been sold in the United States alone.
A Course in Miracles by Dr. Helen Schucman and Dr. William Thetford (1975)
A unique, universal, self-study spiritual thought system that teaches that the way to Love and Inner Peace is through Forgiveness. This is said to be a course in finding your inner Teacher. Here is their story of how it came into being: http://acim.org/AboutACIM/how.html. It is said to be a trance channel of a spirit called "Jesus." Christians call it Satanic, others find it "cohesive, beyond human understanding." We will see.
The Phoenix Journals (late 1980s through 1998, plus occasional ones after that)
Communications from alleged ETs that are not channeled. They are said to be received by microwave transmission. Unsure of the validity of this source as I haven't read enough yet, but appears to be involved with the evacuation of Earth during predicted, up-coming cataclysms. I find the tone (of what I have read) to be rather harsh but it may have just been the limited selections I read.
Seth: The Spiritual Teacher Who Launched The New Age (1960s)
(channeled by Jane Roberts)
"You create your own reality" - Seth, 1963
What is the purpose of existence? Seth- "The human race is a stage though which various forms of consciousness travel. Before you can be allowed into systems of reality that are more extensive and open, you must first learn to handle energy; and see, through physical materialization, the concrete result of thought and emotion.”
"In more advanced systems, thoughts and emotions are automatically and immediately translated into action... Therefore, the lessons must be taught and learned well. The responsibility for creation must be clearly understood.”
Ra: The Law of One by Ra, a sixth-density social memory complex (1981-1984)
(This work is large. I have read selected topics, but not the entire work.)
Study Guide: http://www.spiritofra.com/Ra-section%201.htm
Channeled between 1981-1984 an experiment designed to communicate with an extraterrestrial being. The experiment began in 1962 and the process was refined for nineteen years. In 1981 the experimental results of otheir ur efforts changed profoundly in quality and precision. This book is simply a report of the beginning of this latter phase of their work. Their research group uses what they call “tuned trance telepathy” to communicate with an extraterrestrial race called Ra. They used the English language because it was known by Ra, a sort of extraterrestrial missionary who landed on Earth about 11,000 years ago with the objective of helping Earthman with his mental evolution. Failing in this attempt, Ra retreated from the Earth’s surface but continued to monitor activities closely on this planet. For this reason Ra is highly informed about our history, languages, etc.
Ra is a sixth-density social memory complex. Since Earth is near the end of the third-density cycle of evolution, this means that Ra is three evolutionary cycles ahead of us. In other words, Ra’s present state of evolution is millions of years in advance of Earthman’s. There are chronological links, as well as topical links.
The Urantia Book (1955) -- I ABANDONED RESEARCHING THIS BECAUSE IT DID NOT RING TRUE TO ME --
(This work is very large. I have read the sections on Jesus.)
I suggest reading this overview first: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Urantia_Book. FYI, the concept of the Thought Adjuster is Spirit, and sounds like the higher self. The morontia soul or morontia Self is "the evolutionary and potentially immortal soul." It is a combination of the material/mind/soul and spirit:
111:2.4 (1218.2) There are three and not two factors in the evolutionary creation of such an immortal soul. These three antecedents of the morontia human soul are:
111:2.5 (1218.3) 1. The human mind and all cosmic influences antecedent thereto and impinging thereon.
111:2.6 (1218.4) 2. The divine spirit indwelling this human mind and all potentials inherent in such a fragment of absolute spirituality together with all associated spiritual influences and factors in human life.
111:2.7 (1218.5) 3. The relationship between material mind and divine spirit, which connotes a value and carries a meaning not found in either of the contributing factors to such an association. The reality of this unique relationship is neither material nor spiritual but morontial. It is the soul.
Morantia indicates the mid-level between the lower material mind and the higher or cosmic mind. A morantia soul is an evolving soul.
It is said that parts of the work was plagiarized, and that William Sadler (a physician who treated the unknown man who channeled the material) probably wrote it. There are pros and cons for each side. My own impression, after reading Part IV (about the life of Jesus) is that it reads like a textbook. The data was quite interesting and it was a good read. But whether it's true or not, is unknown.
Here's the publishers' blurb:
The Urantia Book, first published by Urantia Foundation in 1955, claims to have been presented by celestial beings as a revelation to our planet, Urantia.
The writings in The Urantia Book instruct us on the genesis, history, and destiny of humanity and on our relationship with God the Father. They present a unique and compelling portrayal of the life and teachings of Jesus. They open new vistas of time and eternity to the human spirit, and offer new details of our ascending adventure in a friendly and carefully administered universe.
The Urantia Book offers a clear and concise integration of science, philosophy, and religion. Those who read and study it believe that The Urantia Book has the capacity to make a significant contribution to the religious and philosophical thinking of people worldwide.
The Urantia Book is not a "religion" per se. It builds upon the religious heritages of the past and present, encouraging a personal, living religious faith.
Readers around the world have told us that reading The Urantia Book has profoundly affected them and often changed their lives. It has inspired them to reach new levels of spiritual growth and enhanced their sense of the value of human life.
We encourage you to read it as well and discover for yourself its ennobling message.
