No Coincidences in Life

People often suggest that a given event happened coincidentally, which is to say that it did not happen as a result of any planned or natural occurrence. Let’s consider this for a moment.

Anything which happens to any individual or species is by definition ‘experiential’, which means that it is either coincidental or in accordance with some defined rule, law or plan. Let’s first examine the validity of ‘coincidence’. Read More…

Take Responsibility for Your Energy

On the last Oprah Winfrey Show, Oprah talked about a sign which she kept in her makeup room, upon which was written: “Please take responsibility for the energy that you bring into this space.” The moment I heard this truly profound statement, I recognized its importance to every interaction in life, and I knew I had share it on The Soul Channel.

Oprah received the sign from one of her guests by the name of Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor, who was on the show talking about her book My Stroke of Insight: A Brain Scientist’s Personal Journey. The Oprah website also provides an excellent excerpt from the book, which demonstrates the exceptional quality, detail and accessibility of Dr. Taylor’s writing.

I was especially pleased to read what Oprah learned from her discussions with Dr. Taylor, including:

“Nobody but you is responsible for your life. It doesn’t matter what your mama did; it doesn’t matter what your daddy didn’t do. You are responsible for your life. … You are responsible for the energy that you create for yourself, and you’re responsible for the energy that you bring to others.”

As discussed in other Soul Channel articles, learning does not take place except through change. What changed in Oprah’s life from this experience? She explained:

“I ask the same thing in my home and at my companies. Thank you, Dr. Taylor, for that simple but powerful lesson. All life is energy and we are transmitting it at every moment. We are all little beaming little signals like radio frequencies, and the world is responding in kind.” How quickly an excellent student of life becomes an exceptional teacher.

The preceding discussion provides an intriguing background for this article. Yet what I really want to chat about is the infinite depth of the word ‘space’ in the quote, “Please take responsibility for the energy that you bring into this space.” It is easy to imagine that ‘space’ refers to the room or building you just entered. Ever walk into a room where a heated argument has been taking place and you actually feel the angry energy still present? Have you ever experienced the contagious energy of laughter? Read More…

Channeling 2011/11/05 — Many Paths to God and to Heaven

Introductory Remarks

One of the most important aspects of The Soul Channel is the opportunity to share channeled sessions. For my channeling/meditation sessions, I find it easiest to use automatic writing on a computer, which is discussed extensively in a previous two-part Automatic Writing article/post.

I recently wrote a book review for The Soul Channel on Heaven is for Real: A Little Boy’s Astounding Story of His Trip to Heaven and Back, in which a boy not quite 4 years old had a near death experience and visited Heaven. Sometime after recovery, the boy seemed quite emphatic that souls cannot get back into Heaven without Jesus in their heart. The Soul Channel is not intended to promote any individual religion, and I personally do not believe that souls who do not accept Jesus as their personal savior cannot go to Heaven. Therefore, I felt a strong need to address this question with the Soul Side and to share the answer on The Soul Channel.

I believe that all spiritual paths lead to God and to the light (to Heaven). Therefore, in this specific session, I am seeking to examine the validity of the little boy’s conviction that the only path to Heaven is through Jesus. I decided to pose this question first to my Council of Elders and then directly to the Creator. (When channeling, never impose limits on who you want to communicate with.)

Channeling 2011/11/04 — How Can Spiritual Divinity be ‘Always Available’

Introductory Remarks

One of the most important aspects of The Soul Channel is the opportunity to share channeled sessions. This might also be considered as a meditation session, as meditation is certainly involved as part of the process of clearing the mind so as to be open to the channeled communications. For my channeling/meditation sessions, I find it easiest to use automatic writing on a computer, which is discussed extensively in a previous two-part Automatic Writing article/post.

In this specific session, I am seeking to understand how spiritual divinity (God, Allah, Jesus, St. Michael, etc.) are ‘always available’ to communicate and respond to questions and prayer. I decided to pose this question directly to the Creator. (Why not?)

For this session, I would be grateful to communicate directly with God. Is this allowed, and can we do this within a flexible, multi-session discussion.

Of course, John. It would be valuable for people to understand that I am ALWAYS available, just as I am ALWAYS with and within every person. Similarly, the mechanism or approach to communication is not so important; what is important is the effort made to communicate and the openness for discussion.

Which leads to my primary question and the foundation of this discussion. If we recognize that there are many tens of billions of galaxies within the known universe, billions of star systems within those galaxies, billions of planets within those star systems, and according to Carl Sagan, “the total number of stars in the universe is greater than all the grains of sand on all the beaches of the planet Earth.” How can You be everywhere at once, and how are You able to find time to communicate with even a single being once in a lifetime, let alone being “ALWAYS available”?
