I don’t know how you cannot believe in alternate parallel universes–after all that is what was portrayed in one episode of Star Trek, don’t you remember? Seriously, though, it did make me think and some parts of string theory seem to support it…
First, let me clarify that I have not said that there are not co-existing or parallel universes. In my last post I noted that string theory speculates that there may be 11 dimensions and I also stated that it is likely that a universe of anti matter exists.
What I said that makes no sense to me is the idea that there exists an infinite number of duplicate universes with a duplicate version of you and me in them living slightly different lives. For one thing, if I had my life to live over and didn’t know what the future held, I would most likely make the same choices all over again indicating that me in another universe would not really be living an alternative life but the same one I am living here. I believe that parts of our consciousness do play out alternative scenarios in the astral and dream world to compensate for unfulfilled desire but not in an alternative physical reality.
But I agree it makes no true logical sense. In Matrix Energetix (which Artie asked me to present at the last Gathering) and in other healing modalities one of the techniques is to take people into a parallel universe, extract useful scenarios and bring them back to this universe for healing purposes. There have been some powerful healings as a result. Is it placebo or just consciousness “making it up” and using it or the real deal?
That is a good question. The answer though lies not in parallel physical universes but in the power of the mind and desire to create whatever it wants on subtle levels. The universal law is that energy follows thought and if you create through the power of thought in mental and emotional matter then effects will ripple down to the physical world.
Let me give two examples.
The first is taken from the book, Psycho-Cybernetics by Maxwell Maltz. He references an experiment on three groups of students.
All three groups were tested on their ability to make successful shots in basketball and their scores were tabulated.
The first group was then told to practice making shots every day for the next 20 days.
The second group was told to not practice at all and the third group was told to merely practice in their minds. They were to not physically practice but to spend some time each day imagining shooting the ball. If they missed in their imagination they were to shoot again and imagine making the basket.
After the twenty days passed they tested all three groups again for accuracy and the results were astonishing.
The first group had improved 24% in their accuracy.
The second group showed no improvement.
The third group, however, improved an astonishing 23%, a statistical tie with the first group who physically practiced.
Were they tapping into other selves in an alternative universe who were basketball stars?
They were instead using the principle of energy following thought.
The second example was given by Napoleon Hill in his famous book, Think and Grow Rich. An important ingredient he taught on achieving success was the creation of a Master Mind. He taught that we as individuals are very limited in knowledge so we should gather around us other people with talents that we may not have and draw from them. He tells us that the Master Mind group, when used properly, becomes as one mind and each individual can draw the abilities of the whole to use for himself.
Then he tells us how he took the principle a step further and created a Master Mind group of nine famous people that he couldn’t draw to him in the physical. They were Emerson, Paine, Edison, Darwin, Lincoln, Burbank, Napoleon, Ford and Carnegie.
Every evening he would imagine meeting with these guys around a conference table and getting their advice on all sorts of matters. As time passed they became more and more real until he became concerned that the illusion may blur with reality so he quit meeting with his imaginary friends.
Then six months after stopping the practice he had a strange experience. He says:
“I was awakened one night, or thought I was, when I saw Lincoln standing at my bedside. He said, ‘The world will soon need your services. It is about to undergo a period of chaos which will cause men and women to lose faith, and become panic stricken. Go ahead with your work and complete your philosophy. That is your mission in life. If you neglect it, for any cause whatsoever, you will be reduced to a primal state, and be compelled to retrace the cycles through which you have passed during thousands of years.’
“I was unable to tell, the following morning, whether I had dreamed this, or had actually been awake, and I have never since found out which it was, but I do know that the dream, if it were a dream, was so vivid in my mind the next day that I resumed my meetings the following night. At our next meeting, the members of my Cabinet all filed into the room together, and stood at their accustomed places at the Council Table, while Lincoln raised a glass and said, ‘Gentlemen, let us drink a toast to a friend who has returned to the fold.’ After that, I began to add new members to my Cabinet, until now it consists of more than fifty, among them Christ, St. Paul, Galileo, Copernicus, Aristotle, Plato, Socrates, Homer, Voltaire, Bruno, Spinoza, Drummond, Kant, Schopenhauer, Newton, Confucius, Elbert Hubbard, Brann, Ingersol, Wilson, and William James.”
It is interesting that a couple of the people in his original Master Mind were alive at the time he was doing the practice so it wasn’t like he was performing a séance calling on the dead from the spirit world.
He had a very interesting experience with his imaginary Edison who was alive at the time. He says:
One evening Edison arrived ahead of all the others. He walked over and seated himself at my left, where Emerson was accustomed to sit, and said, ‘You are destined to witness the discovery of the secret of life. When the time comes, you will observe that life consists of great swarms of energy, or entities, each as intelligent as human beings think themselves to be. These units of life group together like hives of bees, and remain together until they disintegrate, through lack of harmony.
These units have differences of opinion, the same as human beings, and often fight among themselves. These meetings which you are conducting will be very helpful to you. They will bring to your rescue some of the same units of life which served the members of your Cabinet, during their lives. These units are eternal. THEY NEVER DIE! Your own thoughts and DESIRES serve as the magnet which attracts units of life, from the great ocean of life out there. Only the friendly units are attracted—the ones which harmonize with the nature of your DESIRES.’
The other members of the Cabinet began to enter the room. Edison got up, and slowly walked around to his own seat. Edison was still living when this happened. It impressed me so greatly that I went to see him, and told him about the experience. He smiled broadly, and said, ‘Your dream was more a reality than you may imagine it to have been.’ He added no further explanation to his statement.
Perhaps these units were monads.
Whatever the case it didn’t matter whether these individuals were alive or dead. Napoleon was able to draw from their essence.
And why is this?
Each entity whether living or dead is a broadcasting studio for his particular essence which can be tuned into and picked up by anyone willing to use the energy of thought to make the connection. The Edison in his Master Mind was not the real Edison, but something almost as good. It was composed of the projected frequencies and intelligence given off by Edison. That is why Napoleon was able to pick up Edison’s thinking so accurately that he told him that what he received was more than a dream.
This also explains why psychics are able to pick up thoughts from the dead. Of course the dead have better things to do than hang around the psychics. They do not need to if the person can tune into their frequency. They can then receive intelligence as if the person were in the room.
This same principle applies when tuning into a person from a parallel universe. Just as Napoleon did not tune into the real Edison, but his essence even so can one tune into the essence of anyone he wishes in any situation he can imagine and energy following thought will make the connection and do the rest.
Because we humans who are in the image of God can create any scenario we wish in the more subtle worlds. We can sometimes be deceived into thinking we are just observing what is – rather than creating what appears to be.
