Dreams*

I’m currently reading this book called the ‘Seth Material’.. it’s about a medium. Basically this lady starts to realize she has psychic abilities (we all do) and this man, Seth, starts to speak through her. I know that is crazy enough, but it is not the highlight of this read. (No, he is not God he does not pretend to be God or want to be praised.) Seth is a personality, a soul, that Jane knew in her past life and contacted her for the purpose of writing these books. He lives on another plane and does not share our physical reality. He seems to be ‘psychic’ to us because he sees our lives from a different perspective. The ideas and theories that Seth has on life are out of this world.

I’ve learned all kinds of new things from this book the past two chapters I read were on reincarnation & health. He had lots of unique perspective on both topics maybe I’ll go into them on another post. The current chapter is on dreams and how we can use dreams to solve problems.

(I’m no pro at this and you should really read the book for yourself because you’re not getting the entire picture from this passage. I am just expressing what I’ve learned to spark the interest for someone else to explore in that direction, because I think sounds pretty cool.)

“Over and over Seth says that a dream or imaginative experience is as real as any waking event.”

This statement is hard to accept because you haven’t read the book, but Seth speaks about how we create matter on the physical plane and therefore create everything about the world that we live in, mentally. According to him we even choose our lives, the time periods that we live in, where we live who our parents are (there’s so much on this I can’t go into detail right now). We exist on multiple planes although we feel that we only exist on the physical one. Our actual life is really somewhat like a dream though it is our reality and we have to operate within it. The chapter on reincarnation had a lot of insight on this topic. He says that our “past” lives/personalities are all basically working together to benefit one larger self and that there are even more realities that will occur once we move past this physical plane.

(I was not joking when I said I have some pretty far fetched beliefs. I am just learning about all of this but for some reason it makes more sense to me than it sounds like bullshit.)

So, dreams. Supposedly our dreams can aide us or are aiding us whether we realize it or not..

“Each dream object is actually double- or triple- decked, a symbol for other, deeper data. A dream involving reincarnational information, for example may also serve to help us face a present-day problem by reminding us of other unused abilities inherent in our personalities.”

“Each dream begins with psychic energy which the individual transforms not into physical matter, but into a reality every bit as functional and real.”

Seth says that we can suggest to our inner selves what we would like to resolve in a dream. I plan to try it out tonight. They say: if we’re feeling depressed before sleep we should suggest to ourselves that we will have a pleasant or joyful dream that will completely restore our good spirits & vitality. It’s called dream therapy.

We do not have to understand or even remember the dream for it to have an effect on our subconscious.

Jane (the author/medium) also said once that she told herself before sleep that she would have a dream that would give her further information about her own reincarnational past and that her dream was very insightful.

I definitely am excited to explore these exercises to see what they bring me. I am going to stop here because I am still reading and I don’t want these entries to be too long. I encourage you guys to explore the topic on your own! Please remember if you don’t believe something is for you, it isn’t. Our thoughts control our reality.

1. Immediately begin to live in the present as much as possible. 2. Refuse to worry 3. When your thoughts do touch upon your particular problem in that present moment, imagine the best possible solution to the dilemma.

Seth: Creating and Manipulating Your Own Reality

“You must learn to listen to the voice of the inner self and work with it.

You may also simply ask the inner self to make the answers to problems available on a conscious basis.

You create your reality according to your beliefs and expectations, therefore you should examine these carefully. If you do not like some aspect of your world, then exanmine your own expectations.

Your world is formed in faithful replica of your own thoughts… If you think positive suggestions to yourself about a situation you send telepathic ammunition for positive use. You must learn to erase a negative thought or picture by replacing it with its opposite.

You should tell yourself frequently "I will only react to constructive suggestions.” This gives you positive ammunition against your own negative thoughts and those of others.

There is never any justification for violence. There is no justification for hatred. There is no justification for murder. Those who indulge in violence for whatever reason are themselves changed, and the purity of their purpose adulterated.

I have told you that if you do not like the state of your world, it is yourselves that you must change, individually and en masse. This is the only way that change will be effected. If your generation or any generation effects change, this is the only way it will be done. What I am telling you has been said before through the centuries. It is up to you as to whether or not you will listen.

It is wrong to curse a flower and wrong to curse a man. It is wrong not to hold any man in honor, and it is wrong to ridicule any man. You must honor yourselves and see within yourselves the spirit of eternal vitality. If you do not do this, then you destroy what you touch. And you must honor each other individual also, because in him is the spark of eternal vitality.

When you curse another, you curse yourselves, and the curse returns to you. When you are violent, the violence returns. …I speak to you because yours is the opportunity and yours is the time. Do not fall into the old ways that will lead you precisely into the world that you fear.

When every young man refuses to go to war, you will have peace. As long as you fight for gain and greed, there will be no peace. As long as one person commits acts of violence for the sake of peace, you will have war. Unfortunately it is difficult to imagine that all the young men in all of the countries will refuse to go to war at the same time. And so you must work out the violence that violence has wrought. Within the next hundred years that time may come. Remember, you do not defend any idea with violence.

There is no man who hates but that that hatred is reflected outward and made physical. And there is no man who loves but that that love is reflected outward and made physical.

The human personality has no limitations except those which it accepts. There are no limits to its development or growth, if it will accept no limits. There are no boundaries to the self except those boundaries which the self arbitrarily creates and perpetuates. There is no veil through which human perception cannot see, except the veil of ignorance which is pulled down by the materialistic ego.

Men and women have joyfully honored the evening and the dawn and listened to the heart pulse within them with a blessing and a joy, who have not had one hundredth of your blessings or one-third the reason to look forward to another day, and they have fulfilled them selves and brought joy to others. They accepted life on its terms, and in so accepting they were filled with a grace … that comes from giving life all that you have

Your thoughts have an electromagnetic reality. Now you must realize that this is true or the rest of what I am saying will indeed sound like Pollyanna nonsense.

When you think in terms, for example, of abundance and plenty, then those thoughts draw to you abundance and plenty as a magnet does.

There will be a while, while you are changing your beliefs - for example, you will find yourself in a period where you feel quite self deceptive and you are saying ‘I am surrounded by wealth and abundance’, and you still look around you and you are poor. And you think, ‘This is a lot of bull!’

But it took you some time to build up your beliefs to the point of your present experience, and, so, in your terms, there may be some lag before your new beliefs draw to you abundance. But, your physical experience follows your thought. And you cannot change the experience without first changing your thought. Now it does no good to believe two things at the same time.

So, what you do is this – you say, ‘I will play around with this idea. I will admit that it might be possible that my own thoughts about money are causing my lack of it. And so, for the hell of it, I will, several times a day, pretend that I am surrounded by abundance, and in my mind I will imagine the things that I want. If it does not work, I have not lost a thing, but if it works, I have gained a lot.’

So, you try it for several weeks, and each time that you do, the idea becomes a little bit more possible, a little bit more real. And, in the meantime, these thoughts are changing the beliefs that you have had.

They are at least balancing them. And they begin to draw to you abundance. There is no other way to change your physical reality, but by changing your thoughts.

Once more, if you think of daily life as an ever-moving three-dimensional painting with you as the artist, then you will realize that as your beliefs change so will your experience. You must accept the idea completely, however, that your beliefs form your experience. Discard those beliefs that are not bringing you those effects you want. In the meantime you will often be in the position of telling yourself that something is true in the face of physical data that seems completely contradictory. You may say, “I live amid abundance and am free from want,” while your eyes tell you that the desk is piled with bills. You must realize that you are the one who produced that “physical evidence” that still faces you, and you did so through your beliefs.

So as you alter the belief, the physical evidence will gradually begin to “prove” your new belief as faithfully as it did your old one. You must work with your own ideas. While there are general categories of beliefs, and general reasons for them, you must become personally aware of your own, for no one person is completely like any other. The old beliefs served a purpose and fulfilled a need.

As mentioned earlier you may have believed that of itself poverty was more spiritual than abundance, or that you were basically unworthy and should therefore punish yourself by being poor

Switching internal and external realities

“Your world and everything in it exists first in the imagination, then. You have been taught to focus all of your attention upon physical events, so that they carry the authenticity of reality for you. Thoughts, feelings, or beliefs appear to be secondary, subjective or somehow not real - and they seem to rise in response to an already established field of physical data.

You usually think, for example, that your feelings about a given event are primarily reactions to the event itself. It seldom occurs to you that the feelings themselves might be primary, and that the particular event was somehow a response to your emotions, rather than the other way around. The all-important matter of your focus is largely responsible for your interpretation of any event.

For an exercise, then, imagine for a while that the subjective world of your thoughts, feelings, inner images and fantasies represent the ‘rockbed reality’ from which individual physical events emerge. Look at the world for a change from the inside out, so to speak. Imagine that physical experience is somehow the materialization of your own subjective reality. Forget what you have learned about reactions and stimuli. Ignore for a time everything you have believed and see your thoughts as the real events. Try to view normal physical occurrences as the concrete physical reactions in space and time to your own feelings and beliefs. For indeed your subjective world causes your physical experience.
