A day in the life ...

Post  Helen on Sun 12 Jun 2011, 6:32 pm

“I’m not sitting on a cloud and playing a harp”. These were the words (as best as I can remember) shared by Shane Williams who paid us a visit during the David Thompson séance recently. They were prompted by a question from Carolyn regarding what Shane gets up to on the other side of the life. For those of you who are not familiar with Shane, he was a student at the Australian School of Perception who passed away in December 2009. During one of the David Thompson séances held at ASP in May, we were fortunate enough to have Shane pay us a visit. Shane’s response, was typical Shane and did bring about a laugh from all of us. He even joked with Craig Leith about going fishing commenting “they don’t really like it when you go off fishing” which I think was linked to a conversation Craig and Shane shared before Shane passed.

Following Shane's visit I came across some writings from Charlotte Elizabeth Dresser who specialised in automatic writing in the early 20th century. A book she published in 1922 details spirit conversations that took place through her automatic writing and from what I have read it seems to be an interesting read and there are a number of chapters that caught my eye. In particular, Charlotte has recorded some information regarding what does actually go on by way of occupation in the life of spirit. Below is an extract from that book and I have included the full extract because I think it is worth reading, after all it has come directly from the spirit world via the automatic writing of Charlotte.

The activities described are in some ways quite basic and whilst I surprised myself when I read that they study the alphabet, it just makes perfect sense if the spirit world wants to maintain a communication with those in the physical world. How else would we get automatic writing if the basic principle of writing is forgotten. At the other extreme there are areas for which there are no words. Activities, scenery, colours with no words in any earthly vocabulary to describe them – how fantastically amazing - you almost want them to put it out on DVD. Now there's a reality show that would be worth watching!!

And so, with no further delay, a day in the life of someone living on the other side of the veil from the pencil of Charlotte Dresser, direct from the spirit world ...

“… I can tell you some of our activities, but you may have trouble in understanding, as we cannot well express them in terms of human language. For instance, you cannot understand the terms we use in creating or combining colours. You could not possibly understand how our music is created. As so with a multitude of things.

To tell you anything of our occupations, you must know first that we are taught to work for others, which is the joy of life here. We are taught various sciences and the methods of spirit thought. We are then allowed to go to other planes and study the conditions there. We can see all the life on the different planets and work there if we choose. We are free to choose our work; but, if later we find objections, we may change. Some are teachers, some are messengers, some welcome the new arrivals, many are caring for the little children, some study the other planets, and many will go to distant worlds to learn such new conditions as may be understood.

We are interested in the development of the processes of the mind as they act upon outward things, such as the formation of our plant life, the combination of colours, and the manufacture of fabrics. These are all mind processes, all regulated by fixed laws.

We plan the beautiful fabrics with which spirits are clothed, and it is also with the powers of the mind that homes and halls and buildings for art and teaching are constructed. Architecture is a marvellous work, and we have all the riches of heaven to inspire the planning of all the wonderful buildings.

Authors are here writing books. I mean spiritually writing them, and spiritually reading them to others. Will you be surprised to learn that writing by alphabet is taught? That is part of our education in order to keep the memory of earth language and so to communicate with those of earth.

Some study chemistry as it pertains both to the material and to the invisible life. Others teach history. The poor little earth is not the only planet with a history! Some develop new ideas in mechanics. Most of such things are suggested from here. Then we have work for other planets and other universes altogether away from any conditions that you know. We are in some ways more advanced than they are; in others they are superior to us. There are many problems, and in solving them we are climbing upward in many ways.

But the way is long and the road a weary one for those who have not learned their lessons on earth. Many come here so strongly influenced by their earthly beliefs that they do not realize themselves as spirit at all, and have to be led in various ways to comprehend that death has separated them from the life they once knew. That is one of the things that give us occupation. Then we have many who have recently come over who are ignorant of this life and have to learn its new ways of perceiving and enjoying. This is another way in which some of the circle are occupied. When not engaged in helping those who need us, we are studying the spirit forces, thought power and thought building, the etheric atoms and how to use them.

You do not know, nor can you know, all the occupations of this life. We have given you those, or described those, more nearly resembling the occupations of earth life. But there are many, many others of which you cannot as yet form any conception.

We are active with a freedom unknown on earth because of added powers; we are happy with a joy unknown on earth because of increased sense of appreciation, and we worship with an infinitely greater reverence because we are more in touch or communion with the divine.

‘Could you describe your activities for one day?’

Your breath would be taken away if I were to tell you of the speed and ease with which I accomplish a host of things. I may go to a planet with a message or lesson. I may go to a hall of learning; or drift away to some far off circle to learn of its activities; or I may be helping some mortal on earth, or receiving some newly arrived soul. All of these would not be too much to accomplish in a day here, and much more could be brought within its hours if necessary.

‘An intimate diary of your work, and of your impressions while doing these things, would be very interesting to mortals’

But you see, we do not try to keep track of what we do. That way might lead to pride. Our way is to do good and forget our work as soon as possible and move on to the next duty. But do not forget that duty and pleasure are one with us.

‘You spoke yesterday of turning to other things after our talk. Just what did you do? And what have you been doing today?’

Mary (spirit person) went to a circle where they were studying magnetic waves, and listened to a lecture on this subject. Then she went to hear some music in the great temple of music, and listened until her soul was filled with harmony. After that she went to a newly arrived spirit who was not finding her way perfectly, and tried to help her to realise her surroundings. And the hours sped by until she finally went to her home, and Dee (spirit person) and she had one of the dear talks and companionships which are such a blessing to them both. These are just a few things. Many others came into the day that with you is just over – as certain other studies, journeys to the library for help and knowledge and teaching in various ways and places.

… ‘What was Dee doing?’ … She went to her (spirit) children two or three times, for she has several groups under her care. Then she spent much time helping and comforting several little ones, just come over, and this is for her such a loving and lovely work. Then she went to her studies and to various lectures, and so her day passed pleasantly; and included various little occasions of going to see if you needed her and were all right. You were not well last night; but we did not worry, as we thought you would soon be better. And tonight when you took up your pencil, it seemed to be a telegram to us, and we started, one from a lecture and the other from our home, and here we are.”

Hi Helen,

That was fascinating to read, thank you so much for sharing.
It was all very interesting, though something stood out that I'd like to see what you think.

In the Paragraph regarding studying chemistry etc. Charlotte goes on to write that earth is not the only place with a history and that most things are suggested from here.
Is what that she is trying to bring across is that those on the earth plane who come up with idea's to improve mechanics, electronics etc are actually taping into their higher selves that they are unaware of and getting answers from the teachings from the spirit plane, hence, how all moves along so quickly in our world here, meaning, the advancement of technology, the studying of medicine and how those come up with answers for cures for illness?
Is that what happens when we are going around and we loose something or need an answer that it comes to us via another plane in the afterlife, as we will ask for spirit guidance to help us?
If everyone did tap into the other part of themselves and listened without their ego getting in the way and just moved on to the next part, as written further on (re:pride) maybe the earth would be allot more harmonious and allot less power driven.

Hi Helen and Caroline,

Thankyou Helen I really loved reading this info and found that it carries an uplifting vibration that is transmitted off the page right at you thr further you read.

We are aware that many musicians and writers work on an inspirational/maybe even telepathic level, yet perhaps less so that mechanics and from the written info pretty much all of us function on this level at given times. It makes sense that there is no ego present while working from this level.

We as a class have spent a stack of time covering/working with and trancing ethereal beings to progress them by bringing in awareness/memories for them. What we may have been less aware of is that there is assistance for them in spirit which may be done differently in that it appears that they want them to let go of the physical by bringing awareness of death and a "let go" of earthly connections and we work to bring in the memories of their physical life to the point of recognition/recording which assists in the progression, so an almost opposite effect which makes sense considering the vibration by both parties is so very different, there is no point in us assisting them to accept the fact that they no longer have a physcial when here we are carrying the vibration of one and the same applies to the spirit helpers it would be a waste of time for them to work in the same way as we do.

I understand that there are some things that we may not understand however I can't stop considering what constitutes the colours and why, as to do this would definitly assist on healing, auric readings, crystal readings/healings etc on a massive level.
Thanks again Helen xx

Hi Carolyn & Caroline. Thanks for your thoughts and comments.

Carolyn, Your comments on ethereal rescue work encouraged me to re-read the Blue Room and their rescue circle work. They had some extraordinary experiences, you may be interested in reading about it.

Hi Caroline.

I found some information from Andrew Jackson Davis that I thought you might find of interest. It concerns our spirit friends and ensuring we know who we are talking to thus allowing us to make an informed decision about accepting what they are saying. As some background, AJD was the first person to diagnose and prescribe cures for individuals while himself in a trance state. AJD also established the first Children’s Lyceum in 1863.

AJD predicted the coming age of Spiritualism and is sometimes referred to as the John the Baptist of Spiritualism. In his Principles of Nature (1847), he states "It is a truth that spirits commune with one another while one is in the body and the other in the higher spheres - and this, too, when the person in the body is unconscious of the influx, and hence cannot be convinced of the fact; and this truth will ere long present itself in the form of a living demonstration. And the world will hail with delight the ushering in of that era when the interiors of men will be opened, and the spiritual communion will be established." Several years later, on March 31, 1848, the Fox sisters in Hydesville, NY began hearing spirit rappings and this event shook the world into the possibility of communications with spirits.

"I acknowledge that spirits can and do perform kindly offices for those on earth. I would not discourage any friend from obtaining all the benefit he reasonably can through the aid of spiritual beings. But this benefit can be secured only on the condition that we allow them to become our teachers, not our masters; that we accept them as companions, not as gods to be worshipped. Spiritualism is useful as a living demonstration of a future existence. It abundantly proves this; but nothing else with certainty."

"All spirits are not wise, pure, and holy beings. There are untruthful, ignorant, immoral, selfish, impure, and un-spiritual spirits."

A man ahead of his time.

Thanks Helen for the information on Andrew Jackson Davis. Very interesting indeed. I will endeavour to look into his writings more.
