“Once the Key is ours we shall set not two small planets, but the two halves of the entire cosmos at war, and their mutual destruction will be music in our ears! Unlike others, it is not power we seek, but destruction that we glory in.”

How to access your past lives

By Ellen A. Mogensen with the inspired help of the Guardians of Time


Preparation:

Careful preparation is the key to the success of this exercise.

1> Most people need to do this exercise daily for at least a month before they begin to get anything that is meaningful about their past lives. So you will probably need to have some patience with the process. Yet if you are patient and have a sincere desire to do further past life journeying, you will be successful.

2> Remember to do this process slowly. You must focus on completely relaxing your body and your mind so that images of your past lives can be brought gently into your conscious awareness. Each time you do this exercise you will go ever more deeply into yourself. The deeper you go, the more answers you get.

3> Ask for your Higher Self, your Guides, your Guardian angels, and whatever other servants of the universe you like to be present for the entire session and to keep you safe and protected at all times.

4> Being comfortable is the key. You can lie down (recommended) or sit up. If you opt to sit up, you must be supported and feel fully relaxed and comfortable. Be sure to loosen any restrictive clothing

5> Do this exercise in a peaceful place where you will be completely quiet and undisturbed for the entire session when you are fairly well rested (so you will NOT fall asleep) . This entire exercise should last for NO longer than 45 minutes. Set an alarm or timer to snap you out of it should the session run longer.

6> Pick a special intention for you past life journey. It could be “what I most need to see”, “what I most need to heal”, or “the explanation for my life’s purpose”, “about a past personality”, or “a special need”.

How to Do This Exercise:

1> Take some deep, refreshing breaths until you are totally comfortable and relaxed in whatever position you have chosen (it should take you no more than 3 minutes to get comfortable).

2> Close your eyes and envision a golden white ball of healing light. Send that ball of healing light to each part of your body in turn. Start with your feet, go up your calves, over your knees, along your thighs, through you hips and stomach, along your torso, though your chest and heart, along your shoulders, along your arms, to your hands, back up to your neck, and through your head until you are relaxed.

b> You should be in a place of perfect peace and stillness. Your body should now be filled with beautiful healing light. Take a moment to bask in it: feel it’s warmth and it’s safety.

3> Go inside and connect with your inner vision. On the screen of your mind, imagine a closed door at the bottom of a staircase. See yourself walking to the staircase. See yourself slowly walking down the stairs. When you get to the bottom of the stairs, you will see two things.

b> On the RIGHT side, there is a door with big red letters on it which say “MY PAST LIVES”. Right now, the door is closed. Behind the door is the gateway to your past lives.

4> While you are sitting or lying on the comfortable couch, let the love of the universe surround you. Know that at all times, you are completely safe and protected by all your guides.

b> If you do want to go through the door, rise from the couch and move in front of the door.

5> Before starting your journey back through time, you need to declare the following to the universe. This is absolutely necessary to make sure that your past life journey is a safe and pleasant one.

b> “I will see, hear, and experience everything about my past lives as if I was watching a movie. Just as a movie cannot harm me, my journey through my past lives cannot harm me.”

c> “I am clear on my intention for my past life journey which is…. (what you prepared above).”

6> Open the door. If the door does NOT open, then the universe is telling you to go back to the couch. If you chose to continue, it is your choice. Just consider that it might be for your own good to stop. When you are ready, go inside the “Past Life Room”. Inside this room, you will see two things.

a> On the wall of the “Past Life Room”, there is a WHITE SCREEN with BLINDS over it that is shut and down.
b> On either side of the white screen are two buttons: one isGREEN and one is RED .
c> On the LEFT, the GREEN button opens the blinds and shows you your past lives.
d> On the RIGHT, the RED button closes the blinds and takes to back to the safe, comfy couch.

7> When the blinds go up, you will see an image of yourself in a past life. This will be the past life that you most need to see or the past life that most closely matches your special intention.

b> If you are having difficulty seeing yourself on the Past Life Screen, ask to see the feet of your past life personality. Try to see what it is that you are wearing on your feet. Are they shoes, sandals, boots, or are your feet bare?

c> Once you see your feet, slowly look up to see the rest of you. Once you are in focus, look at yourself on the screen. Take a moment to steady the image, then say “Action!”.

8> Whenever you are ready, press the GREEN button to open the blinds and begin your journey. The first time keep your journey to 20 or 30 minutes. Only go longer once you have had more practice.

9> Whenever you feel your journey has ended or if the alarm goes off, it is time to come back. Reach to your right and press the RED button. You will be back at the comfortable couch. Take a few minutes to rest there. Then get up and walk back up the staircase to where you began your journey.

Like a deep sea diver come back up slowly to the surface of your conscious awareness. You have been to a deep place within you and you must readjust to your normal waking state.

Example: The point of doing this exercise is to delve into your past lives. Unlike a movie, this is always an intensely personal journey that will speak to you on many levels. It will be different for everyone since everyone is unique. When you first start journeying through time, ask to be shown pleasant past life images so you can master the process. I wish you well on your journeys to the inner worlds.

The Key of Space-Time/Time Key

First appearance: Act 15 (Manga) ; Episode 60 (Anime)

The Key of Space-Time (also known simply as the Time Key) was item that was used by Chibiusa. It allowed her to travel through time via the Door of Space-Time by calling on the Time Guardian (Sailor Pluto) to aid her. To use the Time Key, Chibiusa would shout the incantation “Guardian of time! Tear apart the sky and open the Door of Space-Time to me! I call your true name, the almighty god of time, the guardian of time’s father, Chronos! Guidance to me! Protection to me! The path of light to me!" 

The Key made navigating the otherwise hazardous and maze-like Fourth Dimension easy; it could also immediately transport its user to the Door of Space-Time. The use of the Key in and of itself was a taboo, and bringing others along was even more so. However, Chibiusa never suffered any consequences despite often using the Key to travel between the 30th and 20th Centuries.

In the manga, Chibiusa wore the Time Key on a necklace along with the 30th Century Ginzuishou. The Key originally belonged to Sailor Pluto, who wore many of them on her belt. After the Black Moon Clan attacked Crystal Tokyo, Chibiusa stole one of Pluto’s Time Keys and used it to travel back to the 20th Century. Sailor Pluto wasn’t angry, however, and allowed Chibiusa to keep using the Key to time travel. Chibiusa holds onto the Time Key throughout the entire manga.

In the anime, the Time Key’s function and origin are much the same. The Key seemed to be somewhat of a comfort object for Chibiusa, as it was her connection to her home; she would often cling to it whenever she felt nervous or scared. Several times throughout the R season, she would become very homesick and attempt to use the Key to travel back to Crystal Tokyo. However, despite successfully using the Key to travel back to the 20th Century, Chibiusa had a great deal of difficulty mastering the Time Key’s powers. Whenever she tried to use the Key, it would either not work at all, almost work but then drop Chibiusa back down at the last minute, or distort space-time and make Chibiusa’s presence obvious to the enemy. It’s only after Chibiusa makes the decision to trust the Senshi and decide to bring them with her to Crystal Tokyo does she finally gain the confidence needed to use the Time Key. After episode 82, she has no problems using the Key again.

Other notes:

  • In the anime, there is only one known Time Key. In the manga, however, Sailor Pluto wears many of them on her belt and gives one of them to Sailor Moon during the Black Moon arc.
  • It appears as though the Key’s powers are not absolute; in both the anime and manga, its powers were blocked by villains (PallaPalla in the Dream Arc of the manga and Queen Nehellenia in the first part of the Stars season).
  • It’s unknown if anybody can use the Key or if only those with some degree of magical powers can use it (as only Senshi and other characters/villains with powers are shown using it in the series).
  • The Time Key could only bring one to the Door of Space-Time; to actually cross through it, Sailor Pluto’s assistance was needed.

Day 7: How to get into and enjoy Classic Who

I thought a lot about what I could do for the free day.  There’s plenty of meta to talk about and I’m pretty sure I still have my Big Finish Rec list somewhere.  But part of appreciating is being open to encouraging others to also appreciate, and Classic Who can be very, very daunting to get into, and that’s without mentioning the Extended Universe.  So while this might not be overly useful to most people participating in this fest, I figure there’s still plenty of friends you’ve all been dying to get them into Classic Who.  XD  These are just some suggestions that are mostly geared to New Who fans who are interested in delving deeper, but feel free to ignore or disregard part or all of it.

So without further ado, a How to for Classic Who for those that are looking to start the old series.
