Our Swarm Consciousness

Ramtha points out that everything is composed of consciousness and energy.  Our bodies are made of organs, cells, molecules, atoms, fundamental particles, etc.: a hierarchy of structure ultimately of quantized energy.  So too, our consciousness is composed of quantized consciousness or "consciousness units".  These CUs, as Seth refers to them, operate beyond time and space and literally have no boundaries and each CU is aware of all other CUs ... like what Quantum Mechanics has shown us about fundamental particles.  And just like fundamental particles in Quantum Mechanics can "pop" into a particle of physicality, so can we structure quantized energy and pop a moment of our personal physical reality.  Enjoy your "pop"!

“Any section of the land has an identity, so to speak, and I am not talking symbolically.  Such identities represent the combined organizations of consciousness of land, man, and animal, within any given realm.  Simply enough put, there are as many kinds of consciousness as there are particles, and these are combined in infinite fashions.  In the dream state some of that experience, otherwise closed to you, forms the background of the dream drama.  Your consciousness is not one thing like a flashlight, that you possess.  It is instead a literally endless conglomeration of points of consciousness, swarming together to form your validity – stamped, as it were, with your identity.

“Whether dispersed, concentrated in a tight grouping, appearing “alone” of flying through other larger swarms, that particular organization represents your identity.

No Dream Is Stillborn

I love the idea that we are dreams of our Higher Self and that our dreams can give birth to personalities and realities that are launched in the unending quest of value fulfillment and making known the unknowns (as Ramtha would say).

Infinity is really big.  In one lifetime there is so much to experience and so little time, so we literally explode into probable selves, constantly, that radiate in all directions of a multidimensional universe to experience all aspects of a given moment - both "positive" and "negative".  Holding "positive" intent and a love of Being draws our attention to the most joy filled and loving probabilities and we literally shift ourselves, our immediate reality, and humanity in a "positive" direction and we can enjoy our journey and feel a true sense of fulfillment.

“I am a personified energy source – but so are you.  I have had many lives, in your terms, yet in other, terms I have not lived physically, but rather lent or loaned my energy to lives that rose from my reality but were not me.  In the same way you give birth to dream images of your own – hardly aware that you have done so, unconscious of the fact that you have provided impetus for a kind of psychological reality that quite escapes your notice.  The dream stories you begin continue on their own.  No dream is stillborn.

Dream Communication

Seth (and, for example, Edgar Cayce) emphasize the importance of dream work.  We dream constantly ... not just night dreams and day dreams but between manifested moments of physical experience.  In fact, we have a continuum of conscious states:  with what we call awake at one extreme, and what we call asleep at the other extreme.  In between is the continuum of altered states of consciousness where fun stuff happens.

When one thinks about it, the network required to keep our world ticking is mind boggling ... and we're only scraping the surface.  Recall the infinite size and complexity of the multiple universe reality, then dreams are how our consciousness "scuba dives" into the magnificent depths of other physical and nonphysical worlds.  It's been said that we are more conscious when we are dreaming ... and we'd have to be to explore the vastness of the Inner Reality.

“Because you perceive events in the way that you do, of course, you see the familiar physical universe.  Dream events, not as precise in space and time, often serve as a framework through which some evidence of other universes can be glimpsed.  No system is closed, so there are interactions, so to speak, between all universes.  No psychological system is closed either, even while it retains an inviolate nature that is indestructible.
“Dreams, then, operate as vast mass communicative networks, far more effective at certain levels of the psyche than, for example, television is at a physical level.
“The dream state can be used then as a psychological or psychic platform to view other realities, and to glimpse the inner mechanics by which nonphysical events become actualized in your world.

Multiple Universes

All That Is (the Source) is far more creative and imaginative than we could ever understand with our human brains.  In fact we spend an eternity exploring the breadths and depths of creation and still never reach the end.  As Ramtha would say, our purpose is to "make known the unknowns".  Luckily for us, we'll never get bored!

Sources like Metatron and Kryon often refer to the Multi-Earth.  As you can see in this Seth reading, that's just our local infinity! 

This reading gives one huge reason for each of us to treat every moment with the respect it deserves and to savour the depth of love, joy and beauty in each moment.

“First of all, your own universe is not isolated, either.  It is simply the one that you perceive.

“There are in a basic sense other universes within the one that you recognize, and constantly happening in those universes are other events of which you are unaware.  The universes exist one within the other, so to speak, and their events also one within the other, so that while any given event seems itself only in the terms that you recognize, it is a part of endless others that exist one within the other, and it is impossible at certain levels to separate the “portions”.

No Beginnings or Endings

This Seth quote is a tough one to get the brain around since we're so used to linear time, beginnings and endings.  The way I see it, a plane of action (like the Earth plane) could be imagined as a vast flat surface of calm water.  We, as Spirit, drop in (in a manner of speaking) generating circular, ever expanding waves around us.  We follow along the crest of one specific wave at a time but never get all the way around it in one lifetime as it expands.  Hence reality is circular but our experience seems to be linear.


“… it is true to say that no event has a beginning or ending.  This is true of a life.  It is true of a dream.

“Each event of your life is contained within each other event.  In the same way, each lifetime is contained in each other lifetime.

The Depth of Each Moment

Today's Seth makes us aware that physical reality is only a 3-D snapshot made with atoms and molecules and body perceptions of events that are of Cosmic proportions.  That's why living is not so much about the number of moments but about the depth of each moment .... which happily is largely driven by the depth of LOVE experienced. 

Events as you understand them are only intrusions of multidimensional activities into space and time. Events are reflections of your dreams even as your dreams reflect the events you know; those you experienced, and those you anticipate in one way or another. In a manner of speaking, then, and without denying the great validity of your experience, events as you know them are but fragments of other happenings in which you are also intimately involved. The inner multidimensional shape of events occurs in a framework that you cannot structure, however, because as a rule you are not focused in that direction. You prefer to deal with activities that can be physically manipulated.

Now - the intersection of past and future

Lazaris says that we create the present by drawing upon a selected future and placing it against the backdrop of the past.  Here's Seth's version:

Physical events are actually formed now, in your terms, because of the interactions between past and future, which are not separate in actuality, but only in your perception.

Our Physical Senses Determine What We Call Physical Reality

Your ideas and experiences with space and matter … are determined by your own sense apparatus.  What is matter to you might be “empty space” for beings equipped in an entirely different fashion.  Your conscious mind as you understand it is the “psychological structure” that deals with conditions on a physical basis.  Sense data are served up, so to speak, more or less already packaged.

Thinking is a product of cellularly attuned consciousness

Thinking also rests firmly in the reality of cellularly attuned consciousness.

“Thought takes time, and exists by virtue of cellular composition.  Consciousness not focused in cellular construction involves itself with a kind of direct cognition, involving comprehensions that come in a more circular fashion.
The creative act is your closest experience to direct cognition.  While your consciousness thinks of itself in physical terms, whether you are living or dead, then you will still largely utilize thinking patterns with which you are familiar.  Your consciousness is cellularly attuned in life, in that it perceives its own reality through cellular function that forms the bodily apparatus.  The psyche is larger than that physically attuned consciousness, however.  It is the larger context in which you exist.  It is intertwined with your own reality as you think of it.  On those occasions when you are able to alter your focus momentarily, then the psyche’s greater experiences come into play.  You are able to at least sense your existence apart from its cellular orientation.  The experience, however, is circular, and therefore very difficult to verbalize or to organize into your normal patterns of information.

Differentiating Soul and Spirit

Differentiating Soul and Spirit 

Excerpted From 'Living in the Light' Copyright © 2017 by John Van Auken

by John Van Auken

From Edgar Cayce's perspective, spirit and soul are different. Spirit is the life force while soul is the individual entity with its unique memories, thoughts, desires, energy, and motivations.

"The soul is an individual that may grow to be one with or separate from the whole. The spirit is the impelling influence of infinity, or the one creative source, that is expressed in the life we see and experience." (5749-3)

Cayce was asked and replied:

 "Q: What is the soul of a body?" He answered, "A: That which the Maker gave to every entity or individual in the beginning, and which is seeking the home or place of the Maker." (3744-2)

"Spirit is the First Cause, the primary beginning, the motivative influence - as God is Spirit." (262-123) 

Here Cayce is quoting Jesus' comment to the lady at the well in the Gospel of John 4:24:

"The woman said, 'Sir, I perceive that you are a prophet. Our fathers worshiped on this mountain; and you say that in Jerusalem is the place to worship.' Jesus said to her, ‘The hour is coming when neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem will you worship the Father. ... But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for such the Father seeks to worship him. God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth.'"

And again: "There is a vast deal of difference between spiritual and soul forces. Spirit forces are the animation of all life-giving, life-producing forces. The spiritual element, the vitality, produces the motive forces of the entity, whether physical or spiritual. Spiritual forces being the life, the reproductive principle. The soul is the development principle." (900-17)

Cayce stated that, "Each soul is a portion of the Divine. Motivating that soul-body is the spirit of divinity." (ECR # 1096-4)

Motivating our soul to live and develop is the divine spiritual essence within us. This motivating spirit is driven by our highest purpose for existence, as stated in this Cayce comment:

"The purpose of the heart is to know yourself to be yourself and yet one with God." (ECR #281-37)

Seeing us as spirit-souls rather than earthly persons, Cayce instructs us: 

"Don't put the material first, for you have to live with yourself a long, long while! Become acquainted with yourself. Know yourself and your relationship to the Creative Forces." (3484-1)

He is encouraging us to become acquainted with our more eternal self. The body will eventually die but our soul-self will live on and on, so best to become familiar with that portion of ourselves now.

The view Cayce had of us is amazing. He saw us as eternal star beings, celestial souls temporarily sojourning in this physical world. He saw our deepest motivation to be more connected to our primary purpose than to anything earthly.

 "As the entity moves from sphere to sphere, it seeks its way to the home, to the face of the Creator, the Father, the First Cause." (EC 136-8)

Cayce identifies the First Cause as: 

"That the created would be the companion for the Creator."

This is the reason we were created, and as a result, the created (our soul) is given opportunities to "show itself to be not only worthy of, but companionable to, the Creator." (EC 5753-1)

When asked how we become worthy he went directly to the "Fruits of the Spirit" - stating that if we make them a part of our being, then we becoming godling and companionable to our Creator.

According to the disciple Paul, in his letter to the Galatians, the Fruits of the Spirit are love, joy, peace, long-suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, and temperance.

In the Edgar Cayce discourses, he adds patience while maintaining long-suffering. He also adds mercy and forgiveness. A blend of these sources would produce this list: Love, Mercy, Forgiveness, Patience, Faith, Meekness, Humility, Kindness, Gentleness, Peace, Joy, Goodness, Temperance, and Long-suffering.

According to Cayce, we simply have to live our lives applying these in our daily thoughts, words, and interactions with others. The magic of transformation is innately in these fruits, so as we live them they naturally createthe Spirit, the Spirit of God within us - and we become companionable to God.

With us today is the connection to the Divine, to that Life Force. Cayce stated:

"As your body, your mind, your soul is attuned to that Divine that answers within, so may you indeed be quickened to know His purpose; and you may fill that purpose for which you entered this experience." (622-6)

"It will require that there be such an attitude in mind, in purpose, in hope, and in relationships to others, that each cell of the body may be attuned to the divine within. Each cell must become expectant, that there may be the renewing, the revivifying of the relationships that the soul-entity bears to Creative Forces." (3511-1)

Here are some more explanations from Cayce:

"The soul is eternal and if the entity will analyze its own self, it is body, mind, and soul. Soul ... longs for spiritual interpretations, mental understanding, and physical harmony and rest. These are parts of the experience of every soul." (5330-1)

"As has been experienced in the mental self, there is as much reason to dwell upon the thought from where the soul came, as it is upon where the soul goes. For, if the soul is eternal, it always has been - if it is always to be. And that is the basis, or the thought of Creative Force, or God. He ever was, He ever will be. And individuals, as His children, are a part of that consciousness. And it is for that purpose that He came into the earth; that we, as soul-entities, might know ourselves to be ourselves, and yet one with Him; as He, the Master, the Christ, knew Himself to be Himself and yet one with the Father."

"The purpose of manifestation in the material plane is that we may apply a little here, a little there, line upon line, precept upon precept, and we may become like Him.

"And as the entity has through the experiences seen and aided others in the application of their efforts and their abilities to become more and more aware of their relationships to the Creative Forces or God, so may the entity - as He gave - in patience you become aware of your soul. (3003-1)

Edgar Cayce taught: "Spirit is the natural, the normal condition of an entity." (816-10)

Now given how physical we are or at least see ourselves, this is a perplexing statement. How can our "natural," "normal" condition be spirit? Those of us who have known a living pet or person and then seen their  body dead, have seen the spirit - for that was the entity, the essence of who they were inside the body we view left behind. And we do not need to wait for their death to see their spirit if we learn to look and perceive with inner, enlightened eyes and feelings. We can even learn to feel our own spirit within our physical bodies, and even know that we are the spirit, the life essence, the life force using the body for this incarnation. That is a very liberating perception to have! Now we are spirits living through a physical vessel for a purposeful, meaningful incarnation for a time - knowing that we will return to the eternal life in the spirit with the Great Spirit. And we not have to wait for death because sleep is a shadow of death, so each night we "die" to this world and experience the nonphysical realms! Live and learn!

Atoms and Molecules Are Conscious

Being educated as a physicist, there was no room for consciousness.  Consciousness is assumed to arise as an epiphenomenon when atoms randomly grouped into molecules, DNA, cells and eventually bodies with brains.  This was as depressing a philosophy and made as little sense as thinking that the universe just exploded from nothing in a random act of nothingness and, like any explosion, is just mindlessly blowing out into chaos and eventually disappearing into a puff of nothing again.

Seth makes it very clear in many readings that there is a vast, conscious, source of everything that we can perceive and beyond (All That Is).  Atoms and molecules are then living components of All That Is.  These fundamental particles are endowed with a range of awareness, conscious choice and action ... much like us, our planet, our solar system, our galaxy, our universe and other universes and creations, but on different scales.

Laws of physics are really, then, observed social behaviour of various classes of living entities (the sociology and psychology of matter).  In fact as we approach the smallest limits of "observation" (i.e. quantum mechanics) this ability of fundamental particles to sense their surroundings and to make choices becomes readily apparent since we can only predict probable actions of fundamental particles.  By the way, quantum entanglement is just the way these particles are self aware and aware of each other outside of time and 3-D space.


The atoms and molecules themselves possess kinds of consciousness impossible for you to analyze, because the scales of your activities are so different.  They are information-gathering processes, however, containing codified electromagnetic properties that slip between all of your devices.  The atoms and molecules and all of the seemingly smaller “particles” within them are, again, information-carrying processes, and upon them depends your entire interpretation of the nature of events.
“Again, cellularly-attuned consciousness generates dreams.  Consciousness, riding on a molecular back, generates a physical reality and events suited to it.

Dreaming Positive Dreams

Today’s Seth really drives home the importance of dreaming positive dreams … both individually and for the collective whole.  All possibilities exist and new ones are constantly being created by our choices and decisions moment by moment and in the dream state.  

It is easy to get depressed and to give up on humanity by watching the news.  What is important is to walk with confidence knowing that there are beautiful, fulfilling, exuberant possibilities out there and they are yours.  

The universe responds to our intent and feelings more than words.  That’s why positive intent and trust in All That Is are important  According to Lazaris the tools of manifestation are: desire, imagination and expectation. The desire to experience an elegant, fulfilling, joy filled physical experience; imagining and dreaming of what the world and life could be like; and the trust, expectation that metaphysics works and that there’s a you already “there” beckoning you!

Have fun and love life!

Waking events happen and vanish quickly.  They are experienced directly with the senses fully participating, but for the instant involvement you give up larger dimensions of the same actions that exist, but beneath the senses’ active participation.

“In dreams the preparations for experienced events take place, not only in the most minute details but in the larger context of the world scene.  Events fit together, forming a cohesive whole that gives you a global scale of activities.  The “future” history of the world, for example, is worked out now, as in the dream state each individual works with the probable events of private life.  That private life exists, however, in a context – social, political, and economic – which is unconsciously apprehended.  When a person constructs various probable realities in the dream state, he or she does so also in this larger context, in which the probable status of the world is known.

“Here, events are connected one to the other in a psychic webwork that is far more effective than your physical technological system of communication.

Dreams - A Product of Cellularly Tuned Consciousness

Your dreams affect your cellular reality, even as that reality is also largely responsible for the fact that you dream, in your terms, at all.  Dreams are a natural “product” of cellularly tuned consciousness.  As fire gives off light, cellularly tuned consciousness gives off dreams.
“Such a consciousness is at a state of being in which its reality generates more energy and power than it can physically express in its brilliant intersection with physical reality.  The “sparks” generated by each instant of its existence cause additional experiences, perceptions, that will not fit in the known moment of the present – for by then in your terms that present has already vanished into the past.
“These events and responses continue to operate, however, particularly in the dream state where they do not intersect directly with full physical experience, as waking events do.  All of these parallel or alternate experiences are then used to construct the physical events that you recognize.

(The Nature of the Psyche, Session 785)


From one end of reality you shout: “Where is God?” and from the other end the answer comes: “I am Me”.  From the other end of reality, God goes shouting: “Who am I?” and finds himself in you.  You are therefore a part of the source, and so is everything else manifest. Because God is, you are.  Because you are, God is.
“On a conscious level certainly you are not all that God is, for that is the unstated, unmanifest portion of yourself.  Your being rides upon that unstated reality, as a letter of the alphabet rides upon the inner organizations that are implied by its existence.  In those terms your unstated portions “reach backwards to a Source called God”, as various languages can be traced back to their source.  Master languages can be compared to the historic gods.  Each person alive is a part of the living God, supported in life by the magnificent power of nature, which is God translated into the elements of the earth and the universe.

(The Nature of the Psyche, Session 781)

The Language Of Atoms and Molecules

In a manner of speaking, then, you use the language of the atoms and molecules in your own private way.  You mark the universe.  You impress it, or “stamp” it, or imprint it with your own identity.  Henceforth (in those terms) it always recognizes you as you and no other.  You are then known.
“In larger terms, while you speak your own language, the universe also speaks “your” language as it constantly translates itself into your private perception.  Remember, I said that you lived in your psyche somewhat in the same way that physically you dwell in the world.
