Selection from unposted archives. The Silver Cord, the Etheric Body.

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.

How did the belief in Eternal Life arise?March 2019

If you only ‘are’ how can you be aware that you always will be, apart from belief, and how does that belief, if that is the case, arise?

Belief can arise from an absence of knowledge. Now if you do not see anybody leaving, whenever you make a contact they are always there, and everybody else that you contact and ask the same question “Is everybody that you have ever known always appear to be there and do they appear in their general presentation, shall we say, the way you envisage them, the way you perceive them, to be basically the same”? Then if you cannot find instances of “Where did he go, is she still there, does anybody know? Remember, we have no time, or rather, no need to put things in a time based  format, so the belief arises that “well, everything seems to carry on, everything just seems to be”.

We see no evidence of decay, in fact the word ‘decay’ wouldn’t even arise in our consciousness state because it is a non-sequitur. It is just not something which happens unless we create that happening. You must remember in all this that we are creating all these things. So, if you can create one thing, create another, create another then one assumes you can create, what you would term, eternal life.

Because as long as you keep creating and you know that everyone else, or everything else, every unit of consciousness is continually creating, then how can the belief arise in an ‘end’, and also one can’t find a beginning either. So if you cannot find a beginning or an end you must come to the inevitable conclusion that we just are, as we have stated before, so what is the point of worrying about it? We have had a look for a beginning, we have had a look for an end and we can’t find it.

On the physical level you are aware of a beginning and an end of the physical body but many of you are now aware and have been ever since we first appeared in the physical production that although the physical body appears and disappears the, let us put it, operating consciousness seems to carry on. Now you haven’t asked enough questions about where it came from in the first place except for this business of reincarnation. You basically assumed that it was doing something before and it simply wished to do something else in the same physical arena and so you have this concept of reincarnation, moving from one body to the other until you have done enough on the karmic wheel to purify yourself and then you can leave. Whereas we would say “been there, done it, had enough thank you, all those experiences, I’ll try something else”.

If you look back through, what you term as history, you will see that there are all these different experiences to be had as we keep playing around with this ongoing soap opera called physical reality.

You have, of course, to apply that to all the other realities. Just because everything is in potential doesn’t mean to say it’s static. If it was all static there wouldn’t be any creativity would there? As we have said before you can run the same old CD, the same old film and yet you can still enjoy it. You can start at the beginning, the end, halfway through it and it is still there when you come back, so you can finish it, start it again, finish it, start it again and what have you got? You’ve got circular motion haven’t you? So in the end, if you’ve gone through this many, many times, and it doesn’t actually show up as a beginning and an end, then you think “this is endless”.

Let us say that you walked into a football game that was in progress and it just carried on and on and on. You weren’t aware of a beginning and an end because they didn’t take a break. You would be hard put to say “when does the game finish?” You only break it into segments because of the energy limitations of the physical body and also the attention limitations of those who view. Now if you took all the football games of a particular team against another team and put them all together, and didn’t look at the start and the finish so that they all ran into a seamless whole, all you would have is an endless succession of half-times. Would you agree?


So where would you enter the process? You would say that this game goes on forever, there is no beginning and no end. You have to wrap your mind around this sort of thing to understand this business of how you generate this word called “Eternity” because you are involved in the same thing, you are seeing the same process of endless birth and death. You are also aware, for those who are philosophers, that consciousness carries on and therefore you get the concept of reincarnation and because most like to come to some form of conclusion then the prospect of eternal bliss was put forward, sitting on the right hand of God.

Same thing with this business of the ocean and the waves, you are a wave on the ocean and then you return to the ocean, but do you ever return to the ocean forever? If you were going to become a wave and try another wave and another wave, and remember that these are equivalent to reincarnational lives, why would you want to return to just being the ocean? Whatever spurred you to being a wave in the first place surely hasn’t died? The ocean is still there, you are still part of the ocean and you still at some stage wish to be active again. So the whole thing starts again doesn’t it?


And how would you feel as part of the ocean? You would feel “well, this goes on forever doesn’t it?


And so we will end the conversation with “what’s in a word”?

Right. Now something that you said there…Can you elaborate on how we choose this life on the physical?

We have been over this before haven’t we? Several times. Basically you are watching the ideas going by and as others watch the ideas going by then effectively, look at it this way, we haven’t used this one before, as you ‘light upon’ the thought going by you have made a connection with that thought, you are shining your light upon it, let us put it that way. Your attention on that thought gives it some energy so it brightens a little. Others latch on to it, “what’s this? that one is a little brighter”. And the more and more that latch on the brighter and brighter it gets until somebody says “hey, this is a damn good idea, I’d like to do this”. Instantaneous thought, instantaneous agreement and off we go. Yes?


And so you are choosing what you want to do aren’t you?


So don’t let us bother to expand it all the way. You’ve simply looked at whatever idea it is, whatever experience, whatever life, whatever it happens to be and when the intensity reaches a certain amount you realise that “this is a goer, do I want to join it or not”? Well you wouldn’t have looked at it in the first place if it didn’t attract your attention would you?


So, simple.
