The Afterlife

Time travel for spirits Agree: 2 divider Disagree: 0


Both Agreements and DisagreementsSpirit always lives within at all times every aspect of every being it ever was. Time travel, in the sense that you think of it on earth, is a continuous experience of every spirit soul being as they progress more and more into being their own spirit soul.

AgreeIn the subconscious state, my subjects experience a chronology of time with their past and present lives which resembles what they perceive when conscious. There is a change when I take them into superconsciousness and the spirit world. Here they see the now of time as one homogeneous unit of past, present, and future. Seconds in the spirit world seem to represent years on Earth.

AgreeSeth said earlier that all time existed at once, said Jean. Then how come he talks about reincarnational lives or a series of lives one before the other? The two don't seem to go together. Almost immediately, Seth came through and answered her question. Your idea of time is false. Time as you experience it is an illusion caused by your own physical senses. They force you to perceive action in certain terms, but this is not the nature of action. The physical senses can only perceive reality a little bit at a time, and so it seems to you that one moment exists and is gone forever, and the next moment comes and like the one before also disappears. But everything in the universe exists at one time, simultaneously. The first words ever spoke still ring through the universe, and in your terms, the last words ever spoken have already been said, for this is no beginning. It is only your perception that is limited. There is no past, present, and future. These only appear to those who exist within three-dimensional reality. Since I am no longer in it, I can perceive what you do not. There is also a part of you that is not imprisoned within physical reality, and that part of you knows that there is only an Eternal Now. The part of you who knows this is the whole self. When I tell you that you lived, for example, in 1836, I say this because it makes sense to you now. You live all of your reincarnations at once, but you find this difficult to understand within the context of three-dimensional reality. Pretend that you have several dreams, and you know that you are dreaming. Within each dream, one hundred earthly years may pass, but to you, the dreamer, no time has passed, for you are free of the dimension in which time exists. The time you seem to spend within the dream-or within each life-is only an illusion, and to the inner self no time has passed because there is no time...Since all events occur at once in actuality, there is little to be gained by saying that a past event causes a present one. Past experience does not cause present experience. You are forming past, present, and future-simultaneously. Since events appear to you in sequence, this is difficult to explain. When it is said that certain characteristics from a past life influence or cause present patterns of behavior, such statements- and I have made some of them- are highly simplified to make certain points clear. The whole self is aware of all of the experiences of all of its egos, and since one identity forms them, there are bound to be similarities between them and shared characteristics. The material I have given you on reincarnation is quite valid, particularly for working purposes, but it is a simplified version of what actually occurs. So while Seth often explains present life problems as a result of past life difficulties, he makes it clear to those that can understand that the lives really exist simultaneously, just as three personalities can exist in one body at one time. But all problems are not the result of such past life influences.

Both Agreements and DisagreementsA spirit can often telepathically feel events that are going to take place in its past loved one's lives. There are times when it will have seen enough into a loved ones' immediate future to help give it a warning or to nudge it in another direction. But as far as individuals seeing into the future of what is going to be taking place in world events or universal events, they are not able to experience this future. Source

The spiritual journey is individual, highly personal. It can't be organized or regulated. It isn't true that everyone should follow one path. Listen to your own truth.
