From 13th October 2011
This morning I had an interesting experience which has kind of ‘bled over’ into the physical. Before I continue I should say I don’t practise any religion. I left my body, in my obes lately I have been working a lot on developing control of my mind and my intention in this experience was no different. My intention before going to sleep had been to exit my body but stay in my room and practice controling my mind.
As always we are often so easily distracted from our intention but I was forced back into my goal by the strong intention I had placed in my mind before sleeping. As I left my body curiosity got the better of me for a moment and I thought before my mind training session I would just have a look to see what was outside my window. I had to laugh I tried getting outside but the window just flexed a bit but wouldn’t let me go through. Well done mind for keeping me on track!
So I remained in the middle of the room and tried emptying my mind of thoughts. My mind was empty and at that point I heard a deep voice, it was not external to me but internal. At first I thought it may be God/the Source/Universal Mind but then the voice told me he was the devil. Now I’ve met representations of the devil before, our minds have to use as symbols what we are familiar with and having been brought up in the Christian religion obviously those are the symbols in my mind ready for manifestation on the astral plane. Someone brought up in a different religion would have been shown a different symbol to get the point across.
In religion people often equate bad actions with the devil. I don’t know why but I asked the voice, ‘Why do you do what you do?’ he replied, ‘Because there are so many ignorant people in the world.’
That was the end of the obe as I remember it. I actually think the voice was my higher self making a point. Messages from our higher selves are usually short but kinda hit you like a ton of bricks.
When I woke up I had the aramaic version of the Lord’s Prayer playing in my mind. I discovered this version a year or so ago and researched the meaning of the prayer. I realised that the Lord’s Prayer I was brought up with, and repeated like a parrot, had a deeper meaning. I had been ignorant of this for most of my life. However, it’s ages since I’ve listened or even thought about it.
So there I was this morning with the Aramaic Lord’s Prayer floating in my head, I dropped the kids at school and was just about to drive home. I decided to change the cd, I’d had the same one in for ages. I opened the cd case and browsed through. Some of my cds are unlabelled and I have no idea what they are until I play them. I took an unlabelled one and inserted it in the cd player. Guess what?……………… It was the Lord’s Prayer in Aramaic.
This made me sit up a bit and think about the meaning of the obe. So when I got home I looked up the meaning of ignorant:
Definition of IGNORANT
1 a : destitute of knowledge or education ; also : lacking knowledge or comprehension of the thing specified b : resulting from or showing lack of knowledge or intelligence
2 : unaware, uninformed
My symbolic devil was telling me that there are so many people in the world who have no knowledge of themselves, who they really are, where they really come from. So many unaware people and it is for this we have so many problems in our world. This may be obvious to some people of course, but not to everyone. We are often brought up with such a narrow view of life and again the Lord’s Prayer is a perfect example. I was brought up with one version of the prayer, no one explained to me that there were other possible interpretations.
Before you go have a listen to this, this is what I have floating around in my head this morning….. beautiful, it touches your soul.
