I've seen a lot of beautiful things in my spiritual progressing thus far. But I just don't understand how people can so confidently assert that our individual lives have some deeper meaning or causation behind them, that we "bring about" events to teach ourselves lessons, or any of that. The universe seems utterly blind, and the layout of consciousness throughout this planet seems to suggest that. If you look at all the people, their consciousness state looks like it's just a result of a larger framework of happening.

Socioeconomic status is dependent upon the economy, resources, ideology, and all sorts of other things, but not "coming into this life" to experience a certain state. If that were the case, I'd think we'd see a situation where such a vast majority of the world's population was not in poverty. My fear is that my consciousness/life is just a happening, just as anything else is. And considering the vastness of the universe, it will always exist somewhere, and therefore "I" will exist eternally as this individual John Jones. It terrifies me.

I posted another question, but I am just honestly curious. For instance, we know older parents are more likely to have children with a genetic mutation for very specific reasons regarding the functioning of their particular cells and different organic molecules. If a child of theirs is born with a particular genetic condition/illness, it seems far more likely to me that its just blind (bad) luck. It just happened cause it happened. It wasn't "chosen" by the incoming child. I would love for you to be right, as I have a very stressful genetic condition... and I would love to think I chose it to teach me certain lessons. But it sure as hell is not disappearing if I change my thoughts about it. It's in my DNA and its effects will be there until I die.

First of all, I am right, but if you had read some of my past articles, you would realize that I did not say what you are inferring, but having said that, a vast tale lies behind that statement and your questions cannot be answered in one short article. I want to thank you for the questions because they help me to approach this subject matter from a different angle and maybe shed some light on the subject.

I have always said that all illness has mental roots. I have also said that any illness or disease that you contract some time after your birth can be cured, except of course, for the loss of a limb or something similar that lies outside of the inherent capabilities of the human species. These are not freak accidents of nature gone awry, but nature following the lines of consciousness as it always does, since consciousness creates nature, not the other way around.

Sometimes illness, disease, incapacities and some birth defects are adopted before physical birth for specific reasons known only to the personality later to be afflicted. These kinds of inherited genetic defects are adopted by the personality as "Life Challenges" and barring some life shattering changes; they will be with you for life. If you take this statement in the context of one life only, then it does seem that a great inequity has been perpetrated upon you. But you have all the lives that you need to solve whatever challenges are adopted in each life.

You should also remember that many people who have had cancers and other diseases have seen their illnesses disappear overnight, it's called spontaneous remission. The lesson is that "what happens to one, can happen to all. There is but one singularity in all worlds and universes, and that is All That Is/God. Otherwise, nothing exists alone, no problem is solved for one that cannot be solved for all.

Sometimes challenges not satisfactorily dealt with in a past life will be carried over into a future life, making discovery of reasons for present problems hard to understand. Genetic propensities are often acquired from the parents, but not always activated at birth, and these may or may not be triggered by any number of influences during any given lifetime.

It is important to know that genes can be altered by beliefs as cells are altered by beliefs, so in these cases where the genetic propensity points to a particular disease or illness, it is important to know that changes can be made in the genes themselves, and the disease or illness will never be activated.

It is also important to understand that the knowledge that you carry a certain designated defective gene sometimes influences whether or not it will be activated. The personality sometimes is so obsessed with concern over carrying a defective gene, that he will through his intense concentration on the genetic deficiency, will be lending energy to the very genetic condition that he hopes to avoid and thereby can facilitate the activation of that particular gene, inadvertently bringing about the illness that he so dearly hopes to avoid.

I will address your case in particular, since it is what you are most concerned with.

I don't like to say that any illness adopted before birth and present upon birth is permanent, but in many instances this is the case, but you must always remember that the illness was adopted before birth for known reasons, and if that motivation should change somewhere along the line, then the infirmity could also change course. Nothing in the universe is permanent and if fact, the universe and all within is constantly in a state of change, otherwise stagnation would reign and creativity would cease.

In order to gain a deeper understanding of these matters, it's important to realize that from "before the beginning" in your terms, the universe has always existed, and still does, in an inner realm of psychological reality (it may make you feel warm and fuzzy about it if I called this inner universe heaven), and the so-called big bang was not some accidental freak of nature, it was instead, a psychological emergence, a triumph of consciousness forcing itself into a new kind of reality, physical matter. All matter is filled with consciousness.

You have said that it seems that consciousness is the result of some larger framework of happening and to you it seems to be capricious, and have no purpose, being an accident in the slippery hands of chance, a random happening without any rhyme or reason.

Consciousness always comes first, and all that you perceive came from consciousness. Consciousness creates matter, matter does not evolve consciousness. The universe is of good intent, and I know that may sound preposterous, but it's so. The universe leans in your direction, whether you realize it or not. By you, I mean all of the physical world and its creatures. It's easier for good events to materialize than negative events, and I realize that you can probably present much evidence to the contrary, but that is for another story.

In this case, you, my dear reader, like it or not, are an eternal being, and certainly that is hard for me to explain. Life at any level includes a series of challenges, bringing forth creativity and creativity is the driving force behind all reality systems. All entities, including yourself, creates your own reality, then examines, explores, and lives amongst what you have created until your creations become mundane and you create something new.

You believe, you think, you expect and you get. Always in that order.

You have lived more lives than you know, and if you doubt that statement, go find yourself a good professional hypnotist experienced in age regression hypnosis and they will be able to acquaint you quite easily with past lives that you cannot consciously recall.

You have lived many past lives and you will live many future lives, but always as new personalities. Reincarnation does not infer the repetitive recycling of the same personality over and over into eternity. I know this because no new emerging personality, I mean any new consciousness, new to physical reality experience, would have ever taken on such a challenge as you are presented with at this time.

With every incarnation, a new personality is formed around characteristics of the past personality, but those characteristics remain latent and cannot interfere with the free development of the new personality that takes over from the past personality. The past personality steps aside after the inner work is completed.

All life experiences, memories, past loves, acquaintances, knowledge of past family, and general knowledge is retained and passed on, infused in the genetic structure of the new emerging personality. I will not go into where the past personality goes or does at this time, for we are only concerned with the chain of life as it led up to your present life experience, and why your life is experienced as it is.

I must digress for a minute here to tell you that the universe has meaning and purpose, the world as you know it has meaning and purpose, the soul has meaning and purpose and by inference, you have meaning and purpose, whether you know it or not.

You cannot believe your way out of your meaning and purpose, even if you believe that none exists, even the belief that there is no purpose to life, will become your purpose. You are a small but necessary part of the fabric of the universe, and your every motivation in life whether it is mental or physical, changes everything in the universe.

Your consciousness cannot be negated, diminished or extinguished once infused with self awareness by the soul, it is eternal, but don't worry, rest periods are built in, you call these periods death, so every new life is refreshed and anxious to embark on a new adventure when that time comes.  And for those still immersed in religious dogma, it is impossible to lose your soul, since you are your soul in physical clothing and you cannot lose yourself.

Obviously, the questions and observations you pose could not adequately be answered in an entire book, but we will continue and hopefully clear up some of these matters. I must tell you, that I don't anticipate changing your outlook with one simple article, but maybe give you some hope and hopefully tweak your interest enough to begin reading about illness and creation of the personality that may add some food for thought.

What I write about is not common knowledge, but rest assured, it comes from a source far more knowledgeable than myself. That personality exists in other realms than you and I. I simply pass on what I learn in the hopes that some will intuitively begin to "get a clue". You cannot understand what is said here with the intellect alone, since the information does not originate in this world, but outside of it, so the use of your intuitive senses is of great help.

If you think that this is your first go-around, then you will not understand this answer. You shed lives like a snake sheds its skin, but always retaining the real important stuff, your indelible psychological identity that is the YOU that you identify with. That part of you is eternal and part and parcel of that eternal being is growth, progress and creativity.

Life after life, you build on the progress or lack thereof of your past lives. If you do not understand this, then your present position will always remain an enigma, for no reasoning or logic can explain why one would choose to be born with what you refer to as a "genetic condition".

As an aside, Stephen Hawking, a quadriplegic, despite his physical difficulties, has become the pre-eminent scientist of your times, so he has risen above his challenges and triumphed over physical matter, and rest assured, his next life will not be as difficult. Much good can come out of difficulties, and in fact, in most of these cases, success is sweeter because of the challenges experienced.

I cannot, because of space restraints go into much detail in the following discussion, but will do the best I can.

Now, you create your reality, and so there is no misunderstanding, exactly what I mean is that before you are born, you, as an emissary of your soul, created a plan for your future life, which for reasons known only to you, you decided to incorporate a disability into your future plans.

You DID NOT by accident become the child of your parents as a result of their chance encounter in the back seat of a car at the drive-in theatre. You selected your parents before your birth, and also importantly, they selected you, for mutual reasons that would benefit you both. The invisible inner reality out of which your personality rises is not some sterile, unreal environment, but one of surprising activity, vivid, acute, actual and creative and it's a realm where things such as these matters are settled before the birth of any fetus.

You not only chose your parents, but you chose the general locations where they live, the kind of climate that was suitable, and most importantly, you both, you and your parents, chose a general theme for both of your coming lives. Both you and your future parents chose a theme for the anticipated coming mutual life experience, in this case where the adoption of a genetic pre-birth condition would further your and their development. Sometimes one can learn as much or more from what you might be inclined to consider lacks or failures than from triumphs.

You were aware in advance of the evidence from past lives, that your future parents carried genetic variances that would produce a genetic condition that you have at this time. I say, at this time because even genes are not immune to changes brought about in the creative process, since you create your physical body just as you create your personal environment.

In other words, although unlikely in these cases, genetic structure can be altered by the same process that brings about the emergence of the first cell of your body. Nothing is permanent in the universe. Should your life perspective change substantially; there is no reason that your genetic structure cannot be altered in a very positive way. You could say that you existed before you existed this time around.

You were right in assuming that the genetic weakness was NOT chosen by the incoming child, but by the much more evolved psychological identity present before birth. In other words, the genetic condition was initiated before even the first cell of the child (you) was formed. The child simply accepted the condition upon birth. You could say that the pre-child ordered the deficiency, to further some deeper purpose.

Finally, I want you to understand, that I realize that what I say here may sound unbelievable to you, but think about this. My story, and the story of the true nature of reality is not as simple as "God created the universe and world in six days and then was so out of breath that he had to sit down on a cloud and rest on the seventh", but my story will resonate within the hearts of those who are ready to take a step forward into a new understanding of the true nature of reality.

I wish I could devote more time to answering your questions, because they deserve answers. I can tell you this, even though life seems unfair at times, when examined in the proper perspective, you will find that it's all good. Sometimes it is not easy to ferret out the good from the bad, but once you learn that there are reasons behind everything, you will begin to look, and when you look hard enough, you will find answers.

As with Stephen Hawking, it is common for a personality to select a more relaxed and trouble free future life as a reward after completing a difficult and challenging life experience.
Consciousness is eternal, and you are consciousness, you are not your physical body. Your identity is indelible and secure.

Pendulum; by definition; a body suspended from a fixed point (in this case, your hand and fingers), so as to move to and fro by the action of gravity and acquired momentum.

W. Allan;, the momentum is caused by your own inner psychic knowledge causing the motive action.

In the everyday world, customarily, facts predominate, being the only source of information that you are conditioned to accept in your private and mass reality. You have an investigative, reasoning brain that uses the accumulation and categorization of facts to arrive at some semblance of reality that is acceptable to everyone within your system.

The facts that most of you agree on are assembled into a somewhat coherent world myth that you all agree to live by until the facts change enough to change the reality. Your commonly held beliefs, thoughts, emotions and expectations solidify into the facts that then become the reality of your times.

You are born into a specific time and place, but you are also born into a prevailing system of beliefs of that particular time and place, and this is quite as important to the new entrant upon the physical scene as is the time and place.

In other words, you choose the challenges of the world you will live in, sometimes depending on the abilities that you want to develop and sometimes depending on you being able to apply abilities that you already posses that have not been tested in the physical system before. You make these choices before you are born, just as you choose your physical parents and their propensities, for better or worse.

You are not born with a blank slate upon which the events and knowledge of the times will be written, since you have a history that you are not presently aware of. Most of you have lived before, and some, many lives. That knowledge is not purged from your being upon your physical death, and is carried forward into the next life, latently infused into your genetic structure to rise to the surface when drawn out for specific needs.

To the physical brain as it has developed in most people, it would be sheer heresy to assume that valid information can come from anywhere other than physical facts. A reasoning brain is rather exclusively possessed and utilized by the human species but that does in no way lessen the importance of other ways of interpreting events as experienced by the animals. They are in fact, more able utilize the intuitive end of the perceptive experience than the intellectual.

The human brain is a remarkable thing, and well suited for the gathering of facts, creating a believable hypothesis and adapting to a reality based on that system of beliefs. It matters not whether the hypothesis is a true assessment of reality or not, since all facts gathered that do not fit, are discarded and only the ones that seem to bear out the hypothesis are kept.

Based on these sometimes faulty and distorted beliefs, you create your reality system and live by it, until it begins to fail and fall apart and you deem it necessary to create something different.

You are living a myth that you yourselves have invented, the accepted story that your civilization has created, along with your contemporaries, a vivid, active living myth including its villains and hero's, destined to change as your beliefs about reality change. The myth of your world is of course, embedded in the underlying reality of the inner universe where all reality systems emerge.

This inner universe of probable reality is sometimes referred to as Heaven, Nirvana, Mt Olympus, it matters not what you call it, but it is the source of your universe, your world, your Soul and ultimately, you.

In that sense, this inner universe could be called the " inner source field" out of which all worlds, universes and all personalities become manifest. When you were children, you had a better sense of this inner world from which you had so recently emerged.

You sensed that you came from somewhere, an invisible, unseen world other than from the exterior life given to you by your parents. You have forgotten those feelings as you matured, but that doesn't mean that they do not still exist. Every one of you senses that there is more to life than is physically perceived.

The human personality is a physical manifestation of the soul, but that human personality could not manipulate within the physical reality system if it were fully materialized in the body made possible by your parents. The physical body would seem to be frozen in time and unable to move or manipulate, reason or think was it the only link to the organization abilities of the Soul through the sub-conscious and inner self.

The physical body, to take one simple walk across the street, needs to make innumerable calculations, to manipulate the nervous impulses, tighten the tendons, active the ligaments, speed up the flow of information at speeds exceeding the speed of light, that the physical body left alone would be incapable of and would be in a state of paralysis.

So, the soul, taking that into account, makes arbitrary divisions in the personality, dividing the inner aspects of personality into the exterior ego aspect, the subconscious and the inner ego self-aspect. The ego aspect of your personality deals specifically with your daily exterior world, its objects and events. The inner self or inner ego deals with the non-physical aspects of the personality, facing inward toward the Soul/Entity, helping the outer ego to negotiate safely in the physical environment.

The outer ego, the part of you that you consider the real YOU, surveys the physical environment and ascertains what its needs are, what it hopes to achieve, what its wants to materialize in its world, then that information is filtered through the subconscious to the inner ego, which carries out the psychic requests of the outer ego. In order to do this, the inner ego has to have access to far more information than is available to the outer ego.

The outer ego, suspects and senses that its existence is dependent on the inner ego, but shunts that information aside, so that it can perform its physical perceptions and actions unimpeded by knowing too much for its own good. In other words, there is a pathway to the inner ego and its vast repository of knowledge. The difference is that there exists information that you know, but at this stage of your development, you DON'T KNOW that you know.

The inner ego and the Soul know, and they KNOW they know and you are not cut off from that knowledge except by your inability to realize that it is yours by birthright. Normally, you will not pursue that which you are not aware exists.

The sub-conscious is the connective between the outer and inner ego, and some people are better than others at utilizing that connection to get to the inner knowledge that you seek. You are not then, isolated from your Soul/Entity, and you are not cut off from its knowledge, but channels must be opened and the connections must be developed. In other words, like anything else, practice improves your performance in accessing inner knowledge.

Some people who seem to be gifted along these lines have developed their intuitive senses that opens the door between your everyday ego awareness and that sublime knowing knowledge that is an inherent property of the inner ego and the soul.

Some very intuitive people have developed, what some call a sixth sense in this world. Some have developed that inner sixth intuitive sense in previous lifetimes, so in a very real way, they have had a head start.

 It is to your benefit that you make an effort to make a start here and now, and there is a fun and easy way to do it, which most people will find helpful and gratifying as you learn that there are other sources of information than that which comes directly from the objective world about you.

There is much information that you know, that you are unconsciously aware of, but have set aside in the recesses of your mind, that is there for recall under the right circumstances. Some of this inner knowledge concerns things about your past, things forgotten, other tidbits of knowledge have never been known by your physical brain, but have been sensed by your intuitive self.

In these cases, a pendulum can be great asset in helping you recall not only things that you DO KNOW, but don't remember that you know but things that you don't know you know. The pendulum can also be of help in accessing knowledge that you have previously considered the exclusive property of your Soul, that is simply buried in your subconscious mind invisibly linked to your inner self, and can be retrieved by use of the pendulum with some practice.

It may be reassuring to know that there is no knowledge that is purposely kept from you, no secret that All That Is/God or any other Entity guards against revealing to those nosy humans. There are some things, that practically speaking, you will never know, simply because All That Is, is so far ahead of your conceptual thinking that you can't even imagine Its reality. Aside from that, there is much you can learn, of which you have been previously ignorant, but you should get started now, sooner rather than later.

If you are typical Doubting Thomas, the pendulum is a very simple and productive way to boost your confidence that everyone has psychic abilities that can be put to practical use, and here is how you do it, explained in oversimplified terms.

First, let me assure you that the pendulum DOES WORK, or should I say, your use of the pendulum will work, given enough time and practice.

 It is important not to over expect grandiose results when first starting out. Like anything else, the more you do it the better you will get at it. The results that you get will be somewhat proportional with your belief that "penduluming" is a valid way to get psychic information that would otherwise escape you, maybe forever.

A pendulum is nothing more than a heavy weight at the end of a short string. You can be inventive in making your pendulum; I use a simple two foot long piece of string with a heavy washer tied to one end. Any object such as a 1/4" or 3/8" nut or a short bolt or screw will suffice, but it must have some weight. Using one too light will not be as effective. You could use a small stone or rock instead or if you are health oriented, a radish with a hole pierced through and a knot tied on one end to keep the radish from falling off.
You can of course, purchase a "store bought" pendulum available at most spiritual shops or on-line, but it is not necessary, since any homemade version will work just as well.


The easiest way to get started is to begin looking for something that is verifiable, like finding something that you have lost. In most cases, the loss of a personal item, preferably one that has some emotional connection, was consciously unnoticed by you, but unconsciously was noticed.

Sit in a comfortable chair; it is Ok to gently rest your elbow on your knee with the pendulum hanging between your legs. It is better if you do not support you arm at all, but may be a bit tiring at first, because when you are just beginning, it may take some time for the pendulum to gain some momentum in a particular direction.

When beginning, take a sheet of paper and print a big "YES" on the top and bottom of the paper. On the two sides of the paper, print the word "NO". Lay the piece of paper on the floor between your legs so that the pendulum will hang over the center of the paper. You will always assume that the forward and backward motion of the pendulum will signify YES and the sideways motion of the pendulum will signify NO. Obviously, after some practice, you will be able to eliminate the piece of paper as a reminder.

Relax for a few minutes concentrating on the idea that the pendulum will give you correct access to information not consciously known, but otherwise available to your sub-conscious mind.

You must begin by asking your sub-conscious questions that will have a definite YES or NO answer. Normally, you may have to wait for a few minutes for the pendulum to begin moving in either a yes or no direction. 

Hold the end of the string between your thumb and first finger, lightly resting your elbow on your upper leg or knee. Let the object part of the string dangle between your legs just above, but not to touch the floor over the paper with the yes and no prompts.

Repeat the question to yourself, when you lose your concentration, as many times as necessary. Try doing it with eyes open and with eyes closed. You can state the question either to yourself or out-loud. There is no set way to do this, and everyone must discover their own best method that produces the best
positive results.

Don't rush; give the pendulum time to define a firmly established motion in a definitive direction. From those YES and NO answers you will formulate your next questions.

This is not the typical spiritual mumbo-jumbo "Wooo" "Wooo" stuff that gives spirituality a bad name, but follows specific, well known principles of the human psyche. Give it time and practice using questions about anything you want to know, but are not consciously aware of in your normal daily focus, but something that is verifiable.

Remember, the pendulum only answers to yes or no questions, so you will have to become accustomed to formulating good questions that are not confusing to the sub conscious that can be answered with a simple yes or no.

As an example, if you have lost a valuable ring and you feel it was lost somewhere in the vicinity of your home, you might start by asking questions as follows, waiting for answers between the questions.

Did I lose my ring in the house?
Wait for answer.
Did I lose my ring outside the house?
Wait for answer.
Did I lose my ring in the Living Room?
Wait for answer.
Did I lose my ring in the Kitchen?
Wait for answer.
Did I lose my ring in my bedroom?
Wait for answer.
Did I lose my ring in the backyard garden?
Wait for answer.
Did I lose my ring in the front yard?
Wait for answer.
Did I lose my ring in the car?
Wait for answer.

Go through the questions until you get an emphatic YES, then formulate a new question based on the answer.

You have to use a process of elimination in formulating the questions, and making sense of the answers you get through the motion of the pendulum.

Remember, the pendulum has access to information that your present conscious attention does not. After becoming proficient in coaxing answers from the psyche, you can expand the questions to include all aspects of your daily life and lives that you are presently unaware of.

Your imagination is your only limitation.
