Each life influences each other life

In the realm of our Higher Self or greater self or The Guys Upstairs (using Frank DeMarco's terminology) there is no linear time, just the "spacious present" (Seth's terminology).  From that perspective it's easy to see that choices and decisions, etc., that we make in this life propagate energetically in all directions ... past, future, other realities.  These waves of potential create new possibilities in all directions.  They don't drive the other lifetimes, rather they may appear symbolically or as new opportunities.  It's hard to picture this, but even possibilities that we have never materialized have influence in all directions.

These ideas are best taken with a glass of wine!

“Each life influences each other life, and some portion of the personality retains memory not only of past lives, but of future lives also.
“When reincarnational studies are embarked upon, on occasion people remember some instances of past-life experience, but conventional ideas of time are so strong that so-called future memory is blacked out.”

Divergent genetic behaviour

Today’s Seth continues the discussion on the amazing and little understood flexibility and curiosity we each express as part of the evolution of humanity.  We tend to focus on differences … differences  between people and differences between an individual and the “average”.  If only we could get past that and think like humans sharing a planet and celebrate the amazing story of humanity and recognize our individual contribution to the flowering of life in the universe on Gaia!

“There are individuals who do choose ahead of time – in one lifetime or another – to accept such a divergent genetic heritage for their own reasons – often to experience life from one of its most unique aspects, and sometimes in order to encourage the growth of other abilities that might not otherwise occur.

“Human consciousness normally experiences wide sweeps of rhythms, varying states of awareness, and its amazing flexibility is partially dependent upon its lack of rigidity, its own spontaneous inclinations, and its capacity for curiosity, wonder, discovery, and emotion.

“It is not too frequently noticed, but many so-called mentally deficient people possess their own unique learning abilities – that is, often they learn what they do learn in a different manner than most other people.  Many possess abilities that are not discovered by others, that are most difficult to explain.  They may utilize chemicals in a different way than other people do in the learning process itself.  Some may even have superior understanding of physical and psychological space.  Their qualifications emotionally are also quite advanced, and it is quite possible that they are gifted in terms of mathematics and music, though these gifts may never come to fruition, since they are unsuspected.

“Many deficient individuals in their way are as vital to the development of humanity as geniuses are, for both preserve the elastic nature of human consciousness, and promote its coping qualifications.

“Each person makes his or her own reality, again, but each family member also shares the reality of the others.  Often, therefore, instances of unusual genetic differences may also serve to bring out qualities of understanding, sympathy, and empathy on the part of family members – and those qualities also are vital to human development. Because the reasons for any such conditions can be so diverse, then life should be encouraged even in the face of deformities.  If the consciousness involved has its own reasons for living, then it will make the most of even the most dire conditions.  If instead the consciousness has been kept alive despite its own intents through medical procedures, it will terminate its own physical life in one way or another.

Elasticity of the genetic system

“In actuality, all of the seemingly erratic genetic variances that often crop up in human development are vital to the elasticity of the entire genetic system.
“It would not be beneficial, for example, to try to “breed out” those seemingly unfortunate, divergent genetic traits.  The physical system would become too rigid, lose the power of its natural diversity, and eventually bring a dead-end to human survival.”

Freedom of choice for a fetus

The “pro-life” advocates would have real problems with this … fortunately, reality is not as simple as they want it to be.  It always struck me odd that we expected the Creator of All That Is to be limited by our beliefs and understandings.  Now that is the ultimate in human egoism!

“I do not want to generalize, for each living situation is too unique for that. I do want to point out that all fetuses do not necessarily intend to develop into normal babies, and that if medical science, through its techniques, ends up in directing a normal birth, the consciousness of the child may never feel normally allied with physical experience.
“The child may go from one illness to another, or simply display an odd disinclination for life – a lack of enthusiasm, until finally in some cases the child dies at an early age.  Another individual, under the same circumstances, might change its mind and decide to go along with the experience of normal life.”

Experience of being a fetus

“It also seems that each fetus must naturally desire to grow, emerge whole from its mother’s womb, and develop into a natural childhood and adulthood. However, in those terms, just as many fetuses want the experience of being fetuses without following through on other stages. They have no intention of growing into complete human development.  In fact, many fetuses explore that element of existence numberless times before deciding to go on still further, and emerge normally from the womb.
“Those fetuses that do not develop still contribute to the body’s overall experience, and they feel themselves successful in their own existences.  An understanding of these issues can greatly help throw light on the question of early deaths and diseases, and spontaneous abortions.”

Reincarnational curiosity

“The species is filled with a powerful sense of curiosity and wonder, and the need for exploration and discovery, so that even a man born as a king through several lives would find himself bored and determined to seek out a different or opposite experience.
“In some lives, then, you are born in fortunate circumstances, and in others you may find an environment of poverty and want.  You may be born in excellent health in one life, with a high intelligence and great wit, while in still another existence you may be born ill or crippled or mentally deficient.”
(The Way Toward Health,Session June 15, 1984)

Reincarnational Expansiveness

It's hard for us to really understand the freedom that we have innately to experiment with different life contexts and experiences - individually and collectively - because we have an infinite (and every expanding) set of possibilities to explore, in this and other realities.  We finish every lifetime with more questions than answers ... that propel our exploration of the infinite Cosmos of possibilities.

The problem we have with our cultural imprinting is that we seem to think we only have one lifetime in which to do it all … and to do it perfectly!  It is a belief system that enables central governments and religions to exert a degree of control over the populace.  In our concept of duality, this type of control appears to be essential for humanity to grow and function collectively, but there are countless other possibilities out there.

In truth, we choose puddles of time/space/reality (epochs) to explore with our soul buddies … ever growing in love and awareness … like children playing make-believe.  There are literally an unlimited number of potential epochs, buddies, dramas, etc. so we’re not short on material to explore in any lifetime that peaks our interest.

It’s nice to know that …

“It certainly seems to you, or to many of you, that most people would always choose to be born healthy and whole, in an excellent environment, of parents with loving natures and genetic excellence – and in other words to grow up healthy, wealthy, and wise.
“Life, however, is far too profound and multitudinous, and requires great depths of emotional response and action that could never be satisfied adequately by any given set of circumstances, however favorable.”

All lives are lived at once

As I said before, the reasons for most physical, mental, spiritual, or emotional problems can be found in this one lifetime, and because of the nature of simultaneous time, new beliefs in the present can also affect those in the past.
“In a basic way, it is possible for present beliefs to actually modify the beliefs of a life that is seemingly a past one.  I must explain again that all lives are lived at once – but in different kinds of focuses. Your conventional ideas of time make it simpler, however, to speak of one life as happening before or after another.
“Again, no one is punished for crimes committed in a past life, and in each life you are unique.  The inner intelligence within you that gives you each life also gives you the conditions of each life.”

The Importance of Beliefs

What Seth describes here is called "processing" by Lazaris.  For a discussion of "processing" see the following page from my website: 

“The main issue is always the vital importance of the individual’s belief systems, however, and the sense of worth he or she places on body and mind.
“We have been dealing with quite drastic diseases, but the same concepts are true in other areas also.  There are people who undergo a series of highly unsatisfactory relationships, for example, while another person might experience a series of recurrent diseases instead.  In spite of all problems, the life force operates continually in each person’s life, and can bring about at any time the most profound, beneficial changes.  The idea is to clear the mind as much as possible from beliefs that impede the fine, smooth workings of the life force, and to actively encourage those beliefs and attitudes that promote health and the development of all aspects of healing experience.”

Social Disease

“Many other diseases that seem to be spread by viruses or contagions are also related to the problems of society in the same manner, and when those conditions are righted the diseases themselves largely vanish.  It should be remembered that it is the beliefs and feelings of the patients that largely determine the effectiveness of any medical procedures, techniques, or medications.”

The need for expression

Gabor Matte, a medical doctor, wrote the book “When the body says no”.  The book is about the many female patients that became desperately ill by staying in toxic relationships … examples of what Seth is talking about here!

“Behind all maladies, in the most basic manner lies the need for expression, and when people feel that their areas of growth are being curtailed, then they instigate actions meant to clear the road, so to speak.
“Before health problems show up there is almost always a loss of self-respect or expression.  This loss may occur in the environment itself, in changing social conditions.”

Wired for success

“… the body is always trying to heal itself, and that even the most complicated relationships are trying to untangle.
“For all of life’s seeming misfortunes, development, fulfillment, and accomplishment far outweigh death, diseases, and disasters.  Starting over can be done – by anyone in any situation, and it will bring about some beneficial effects regardless of previous conditions.”

Love activates framework 2

... it starts with loving ourselves ...

“The rearousal of love might well activate Framework 2 to such an extent that the healing energies become unblocked, and send their threads of probable actions into the person’s living situation as well – that is, once channels to Framework 2 are open, then new possibilities immediately open up in all of life’s living areas.  And many of these, of course, have a direct bearing on health and healing processes.”

The unconscious is conscious

“The unconscious levels of the self are only unconscious from your own viewpoint. They are quite conscious in actuality, and because they do deal with the spontaneous processes of the body, they are also completely familiar with your own state of health and well-being.
“These portions can also be communicated with.
“… you are opening the doors of Framework 2, clearing your channels of communication.  Since your physical body itself is composed of the very energy that drives the universe, then there is nothing about you which that energy is unaware of.  Simply repeating these ideas to yourself can result in release of tension, and an acceleration of the healing process.”

Negative beliefs can block communication between Framework 1 & 2

“When you are very young, your beliefs are quite clear – that is, your conscious and unconscious leanings and expectations are harmonious.  As you grow older, however, and begin to accumulate negative beliefs, then your conscious and unconscious beliefs may be quite different.
“Consciously you might want to express certain abilities, while unconsciously you are afraid of doing so.  The unconscious beliefs are not really unconscious, however.  You are simply not as aware of them as you are of normally conscious ones.  Negative beliefs can block the passageways between Framework 1 and Framework 2.”

Frameworks 1 and 2

These are important definitions.  Framework 1 is what we are familiar with ... our sensed, physical moments of experience.  Framework 2 is the domain of the Inner Ego, quantum mechanics, etc. - that realm which creates these moments of physical experience out of trapped light (Lazaris' description).

Deepak Chopra basically wrote about healing which included both allopathic medicine (Framework 1) and changes to our belief system, etc. which resulted in healing from Framework 2.

Cayce is often quoted saying mind is the builder and the physical is the result.  In those terms, mind is Framework 2 and the physical result is Framework 1.  Technically speaking, all healing happens in Framework 2 or beyond … it’s just that most people believe there is some physical process required in Framework 1.

“Healing can involve help on many levels, of course.  The world of normal communication I call Framework 1, while Framework 2 represents that inner world, in which indeed all time is simultaneous, and actions that might take years in normal time can happen in the blinking of an eyelid in Framework 2.
“Briefly, Framework 1 deals with all the events of which you are normally conscious.
“Framework 2 involves all of those spontaneous processes that go on beneath your conscious attention.”

Thought transplant

Deepak Chopra's first book "Quantum Healing" is full of examples of what Seth talks about here:

“As in almost all cases of disease, however, if it were possible to have a kind of “thought transplant” operation, the disease would quickly vanish.
“Even in the most dire of instances, some patients suddenly fall in love, or something in their home environment changes, and the person also seems to change overnight – while again the disease is gone.”

Health promoting ideas

“… we return to those emotional attitudes and ideas that automatically promote health and healing.  Each individual is a good person, an individualized portion of universal energy itself.  Each person is meant to express his or her own characteristics and abilities.  Life means energy, power, and expression.
“Those beliefs, if taught early enough, would form the most effective system of preventive medicine ever known.”
(The Way Toward Health,Session June 12, 1984)

Time to move on

Lazaris has said that we die for one of two reasons:  either we're done what we came to do; or, life isn't fun anymore.  

These are the same reasons why we leave a movie ... the movie is either over, or it sucks .. and we want to enjoy something better.  

Seth is basically saying the same thing.

“Innately, each person does realize that there is life after death, and in some instances such people realize that it is indeed time to move to another level of reality, to die and set out again with another brand-new world. 
“… some people instinctively realize that their own individual development and fulfillment does now demand another new framework of existence. 
“… regardless of the way such a man might die, it would be because the thrust and intent and purpose of his life was no longer in physical reality.”
(The Way Toward Health,Session June 11, 1984)

The natural world is a gateway

“The natural world itself is a gateway to other realities.  You do not have to try and blot out the physical world, or your ordinary consciousness, in order to achieve the necessary knowledge that leads to vibrant health or experiences.  In fact, the natural world is itself a part of other realities, and the source of all realities is as present in your existence as in any other.
“The more fully you learn to live, the more the seemingly hidden “mysteries of the universe” begin to appear.  They do not necessarily make themselves known with great clamor or fanfare, but suddenly the most innocuous, innocent birdsong or the sight of a leaf might reveal knowledge of the profoundest nature.  It is ironic, then, that many people who seek to discover the “hidden” mysteries of nature ignore nature itself, or consider the physical body as gross or somehow composed of lesser vibrations.”

Letting Go

Lazaris identified the following "tools of manifestation": desire, imagination, expectation.  All of us have just these three tools ... what varies is how "sharp" these tools are, how well we use them consciously ... and of course, the raw materials that each of has to work with: attitudes, beliefs, thoughts, feelings, choices and decisions.

Desire provides the energy for manifestation while imagination "images" the outcome we seek ... not necessarily a visual image, often it is just a feeling, or a "desire for fulfillment".

Expectation is the tough one.  It is the sincere, deeply held belief that what we desire and imagine is there for us and will manifest.  The "letting go" that Seth talks about is really what expectation is all about .. the state of grace knowing that we are divine beings enjoying a physical sojourn that we are manifesting for the sheer joy and love of being.

“To “let go” is to trust the spontaneity of your own being, to trust your own energy and power and strength, and to abandon yourself to the energy of your own life. The word “abandon” itself may strike some readers as particularly strong, but each element of nature abandons itself to the life form.  So does each atom of your body.  To abandon yourself, then, to the power of our own life, is to rely upon the great forces within and yet beyond nature that gave birth to the universe and to you.
“One of the very first steps toward mental, physical, emotional and spiritual health is precisely that kind of abandonment, that kind of acceptance and affirmation.
“This feeling of abandoning oneself to the power and force of one’s own life does not lead to a mental segregation, but instead allows the self to sense the part that it plays in the creative drama of a universe.  Such understandings often cannot be verbalized.  They are instead perceived or experienced in bursts of pure knowing or sudden comprehension.”

No damnation

“Nature does not know damnation, and damnation has no meaning in the great realm of love in which all existence is couched.”
