The Silver Cord, the Etheric Body and learning from the Game of Physical Life.
We often hear about the silver cord. Now, I am assuming that this would be an energy. Am I right in that assumption?
If you consider radiation to be energy, yes, a wave transmission. However, you can once more say, that between the physical body, we have an electromagnetic transmission, if you wish, in order for the brain to receive, and yet, in order for the non-physical brain to receive, that will receive on a different form of wave energy. In other words, there will be a form of transformer, obviously for any connection between dimensions there has to be a transformation of energy. Different energy systems exist in different realities. Therefore, just as you have to transform 240 volts into 12 volts for the purpose of using a battery. Yes? The same thing applies but in a different nature, not purely voltage, but an actual change in, you could say wave fre…. The simplest way to look at it, in the point of view of the moment, is that the brain physical works on so many cycles per second, but just as you talk about raising vibrations then that has to be speeded up substantially in order to carry the same information to the other bodies. However, the attention has not been placed where this transformation occurs, because otherwise one has to postulate that the consciousness, or the mind, that is interfacing between the observer and the observed, must be capable of raising the frequency, and lowering the frequency, commensurate with which part of the overall organism it is communicating with, and the information encompassed must stay the same of course. But as is communication between the deceased and a medium, the medium is not aware of what is going on. He has an intention and belief that this can happen, but he is not able to modulate the frequency movement sufficiently to enable a totally clear communication to be obtained.
When I was talking about the silver cord I was really talking about when somebody astral travels at night.
Again here, we are talking about a radio transmission, we actually did answer, because you are talking about a radio transmission. Now, just as you can believe that your beliefs create your reality, we go back to that one again. Therefore, if you are aware of a silver cord and you, from whatever you may have heard this, remember most descriptions are assumed to have been obtained in the physical world and yet, one attains information in the dream world, one attains information in the astral whatever, yes? And so the beliefs run through to the entity. And so, if one believes that there is a silver cord, if you wish, this ghostly plasma or light connection, this marvellously elastic connection, which if you think about it, the easiest elastic connection is the radio wave. So, if it is believed that this is connected to the back of the astral body, back of the head of the astral body, which is connected to the head of the physical body, then, you will manifest it. Accordingly, on the other hand, the person with the clairvoyant ability can, depending on their beliefs again, see the image of a radio wave as a silver cord. The difficulty with all these descriptions is that people expect definitive descriptions and for them to match. But, just as those who have NDE’s see different vistas, no different to you travelling to different countries here, or even different organisations, different plays you might say, there are so many variations that one cannot be definitive. Plus everything is created by the minds, the belief systems of those who see.
So again, just like the recollection of an event, many people will have different recollections. In the same way they will create different images. What is a different recollection but a different image memory? Whether it be a sight image, a sound image or a word image or a feeling image? One can only give answers worthy of an economist, on one hand and on the other hand. Variety is infinite. Suffice it to say that consciousness exists.
Too much attention is paid to pseudo-physical conceptions of what is essentially wave or field interactions. You cannot see a radio wave, you cannot see an electromagnetic field and so how can one see a silver cord, except that which you create for yourself? Which is why some people feel, or see, a silver cord, and others do not.
With regard to large or small people what is the etheric body like? Does it mirror the size or is it a standard size?
If we talk in terms of the observed and we equate the observed with personality and we equate the observer with the intelligence that is forming the personality, the entity; then, as you are aware, the personality is not under full control. It is allowed its own degree of free will so that the actions which lead to experiences can be seen with an experience, observed that is, but observed to the point that the experiences flow to the other bodies. Therefore all experience what is going on. The whole point of coming to the physical is to experience things that you do not expect to experience.
So you are saying that the etheric body will mirror the physical body?
Yes, but that is due to the… the etheric body is that pattern around which the consciousnesses swarm. Therefore there has to be a field pattern that will be the basis for the physical, the manifest. The unmanifest field pattern is necessary for the manifest but this is a feedback loop so as the personality continues to increase the size of the physical the pattern expands. It is a chicken and egg situation. As energy is added to the form the pattern adjusts and of course the intention is there first so the pattern can adjust before the form. In other words, as there is no past, present or future, the pattern can precognate the intake of surplus energy and adjust itself to accommodate. Now you can say of course that the entity, via its various bodies being used in the physical, is aware of the need to accommodate the extra energy. You may find that this subject has not been subject to detailed hypothetical examination and so you may take your own logical interpretation of what we have said. The same would apply for small or large. As you can imagine, if someone grows to a certain adult size, and then shrinks back, you can still use the idea that the intention was not to eat. In which case the energy field shrinks to accommodate the intention. As we said, you can argue this as chicken or egg, depending on your concept of the nature of time or no time.
As a mass how do we change our beliefs to improve the world situation?
Intensity. Things do not change. This world is a co-creation like all worlds of consciousness. It is the intensity of the consciousnesses that have an interest in the physical. Those consciousnesses are experimenting. They are trying out different scenarios. Why do wars keep on happening? For the uncertainty and excitement. For the same reason that you play your sports over and over again. For the uncertainty and excitement. Because you see things as real but the consciousnesses that are involved in this know they are not real. They are just a virtual reality.
So really what you are saying is that we are just a game?
So therefore we might just as well get on with it.
Of course. You are experiencing an adventure into a world of creativity and if you realise that, you will look around you and see the wonderful creations of your fellow consciousnesses and marvel at what the imagination can conceive of, not just the natural world, although that is probably the most fantastic of all, but the productions of the human focused consciousness of which you have chosen to be a part. You are one of the artists that are painting the picture of your reality. So rejoice and take your fill until you feel the desire to explore further.
Earlier when we spoke, Steven said ”be happy and others will feel your happiness and that will increase their happiness”. There are many sages who have said “to change the world you must first change yourself”. You cannot wave a wand and you cannot change anyone else’s mind. You can only change yourself but by changing yourself you may find it is contagious. Why be unhappy? That doesn’t mean to say you don’t care, but realise that you have no power to change the situation except to change yourself. If you wish you can vote. You can get involved depending on the intensity of your desire.
Can you see an alternative to antibiotics on the horizon?
Did anybody see an alternative to bloodletting, leeches? Do you see eventually that they will be able to use a vibration to change the way a cell gives its messages? There is always something new. Always something to be dis-covered. Always another focus, another experiment, always something else to get interested in. Why this compulsion to achieve eternal life on earth, eliminate all disease, achieve eternal life on earth and at the same time say, “There isn’t enough food to feed all these people.” It is paradoxical to argue for both at the same time. Whatever you look at, if it didn’t exist, some consciousnesses would, as you say, invent it.
Previously you talked about learning, would you expand on that please?
Well learning, everything is in a constant state of learning but learning you would define as experiencing. This is not necessarily a cumulative experience, for example, you repeat and repeat and repeat very many actions and very many experiences in your everyday life but you don’t consider this a continual learning experience. As you wash every morning, would you say that you are learning every morning? So, your day to day activities are not considered to be learning but you experience the feeling of water each morning. So, if we substitute the word continuing experience for learning then you can take a different view point. Continual experience is much more easily to fit into the concept of timelessness than learning is, which is seen as progressive movement. Everything that you decide to get involved in is an experience and is basically a variation of experience. It is a previous idea or association moving outwards or inwards from a previous idea. An alternative possibility you wish to explore. You must realise that often you just set the ball in motion and then you follow or ride it, if you wish, in its journey down the hill or in its bouncing between the pillars and you give it volition but you bounce off one and bounce in another direction and bounce back again. If you can see this as continual motion, the bouncing between one and the other, deciding to go this way , go that way, come back, always restricted in a confined space, then effectively you are going nowhere but experiencing the whole time. As we said earlier, these are repeated experiences. At the end of the life you might say “what have I really learned”. Many will say “well, not very much really” but if they had not thought about it, they had gone through life, experiencing, and been quite happy to do so and have little to offer at the end of life as to what they know at the end of life, any different to what they knew before, other than what they have seen happen during that life.
But if they try to understand who they are and what the life has meant to them there will not be too many that will give a coherent and understandable picture of their so-called progression. Possibly this is why the idea of many, many lives has come to be a prevalent consideration by those who think of the mystery of existence.
