I am becoming increasingly convinced that The Book of Enoch is important for an understanding of our present day. This book was known and quoted by the prophets of the Old Testament as well as Jesus and the apostles in the New Testament; and yet, for some reason, it was not included in the official canon of the Western Christian churches.  The Ethiopian Christian Church, however, did include The Book of Enoch in its canon.  The Books of Enoch were among the scrolls found in the caves of Nag Hamadi in 1945.  It would seem it is fitting that this book would be rediscovered in our current age because The Book of Enoch begins thus:

The words of the blessing of Enoch, wherewith he blessed the elect ⌈⌈and⌉⌉ righteous, who will be living in the day of tribulation, when all the wicked ⌈⌈and godless⌉⌉ are to be removed.

So it would appear that the Book of Enoch was addressed to us.

The Book of Enoch helps to clarify the meaning of passages such as Genesis 6:1-4:

1. And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them,

2. That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.

3. And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.

4. There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.

In The Book of Enoch, it becomes clear that the “sons of God” from Genesis 6:2 refers to non-humans.  From 1 Enoch 6:1-2:

1. And it came to pass when the children of men had multiplied that in those days were born unto them beautiful and comely daughters.

2. And the angels, the children of the heaven, saw and lusted after them, and said to one another: ‘Come, let us choose us wives from among the children of men and beget us children.’

But the sins of these angels go further than the mixing of the DNA and the creation of giants.  These angels taught knowledge that led to the corruption of humans.  From 1 Enoch 8:1-2:

1. And Azâzêl taught men to make swords, and knives, and shields, and breastplates, and made known to them the metals 〈of the earth〉 and the art of working them, and bracelets, and ornaments, and the use of antimony, and the beautifying of the eyelids, and all kinds of costly stones, and all colouring tinctures.

2. And there arose much godlessness, and they committed fornication, and they were led astray, and became corrupt in all their ways. Semjâzâ taught enchantments, and root-cuttings, Armârôs the resolving of enchantments, Barâqîjâl, (taught) astrology, Kôkabêl the constellations, Ezêqêêl the knowledge of the clouds, 〈Araqiêl the signs of the earth, Shamsiêl the signs of the sun〉, and Sariêl the course of the moon. And as men perished, they cried, and their cry went up to heaven . . .

And so 1 Enoch tells us that these fallen angels taught mankind the skills of seduction, war-making, sorcery, and astrology.  And, if we are to believe the myths of Atlantis, they must have also taught genetic modification and the mixing of species.  All of these are considered by God to be abominations.

For scholarly analysis of the information found in the Book of Enoch and what it means for us in the current day, I refer you to Michael Heiser‘s Reversing Hermon: Enoch, the Watchers, and the Forgotten Mission of Jesus Christ.  (other books by Michael Heiser)

There are a few versions of the Books of Enoch available online. Here are links to some of them along with archive copies of them. (Stuff on the Internet doesn’t always remain on the Internet.)

Translations from the Ethiopian texts found on Archive.org:

Translation from Nag Hammadi scroll (incomplete and missing fragments due to age and poor archiving methods):

Jeff Daugherty was featured on George Noory’s Coast to Coast AM, where he talked about his theory of how the Bible predicts the Mandela Effect.

Jeff Daugherty believes that the following verse, Daniel 7:25, refers to the Mandela Effect:

And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.

It is thought that the “he” in this verse is the antichrist.

Jeff Daugherty clarifies that the word “apocalypse” means “unveiling.”  In fact, the first definition on dictionary.com is “revelation.”  It is not about some fiery cataclysm or something to be feared.  It is more like the lifting of the veil that New Age sources talk about in which all will be known, and nothing will remain secret.

Jeff Daugherty suggests one potential method of visiting other timelines, at least in the meditative state. This would be the Quantum Jumping technique developed by Burt Goldman. This technique is somewhat reminiscent of Napolean Hill’s method of Council meetings laid out in his chapter on “The Sixth Sense.”  More on Quantum Jumping:

lovebirdIt’s been many years ago now, before 2000, but once upon a time, I kept lovebirds.  It began with one, and then I decided that it needed a buddy.  It turned out that the two were male and female, and they became a mated pair.
Soon, from them, I had another mated pair.  I kept all four in a large cage, and they all got along fine.

Then one day, the older female passed away.  That left her mate with the other pair.  It did not take long before the pair became aggressive against the lone male.  It became clear that he would have to be removed from the large cage.  I had a smaller cage that I used to transport the birds, in the rare instance that became necessary.  It really was rather small to live in, and I knew the lone male would need a bigger cage.

One morning, I woke up feeling inspired to get the cage that day.  It was as if I was impelled by Spirit to do so.  With an unusual sense of confidence and purpose, I walked up to lone male’s cage and announced to him that I would be buying a cage that day.  I described to him the size of the cage and how much I would pay for it.  There was a very definite energy of certainty about the way I did so.

I went to a few different stores in town.  The price of the cages in the first two stores was more than I intended to pay.  In the third store, I browsed around.  I looked at the cages in the main display area, but they were not quite what I wanted.

Then I looked up into the top stock and noticed a cage way up above the shelving.  I asked the storekeeper how much it was.  He was actually surprised to see it there.  It had no price on it.  He thought for a moment, and then offered it at the price I had declared that morning.  As I looked at the cage, I saw that it matched the description I had announced to the bird that morning.  Then I saw that it was missing a perch!  I quickly realized that I had neglected to include the perch as I described the cage that morning.  Oops!  The shopkeeper found a perch for a small additional price, and I bought the cage.

So why do I tell this story?  It is an example of manifesting.  It is important for me to emphasize that I was feeling an unusual surety that day.  It was not simply thinking that I should get a cage.  I had been doing that already for a couple of weeks.  But this day, I felt impelled by Spirit.  It’s as if something clicked into place like a switch in some gear-driven mechanical device.

Hurricane FloydI held this story back for a long time because I did not want it to seem that I was bragging. But now, it seems to me that stories like this are needed. Big changes are needed on this planet right now, and this is a story of doing something big.

I had the experience in 1999 of working with a hurricane in a meditative shamanic way.  While I may have been doing what I was doing all by myself, I was not the only person working on this storm. I do not make any claim to be sole cause of any effects.

It was Hurricane Floyd, and it was heading for Miami at the time this story begins. Not only was the storm packing winds of near Category 5 force, but it was also a tremendously huge storm packing lots of rain.

As this story begins, I was chatting on the computer at the time with someone in Miami. He was telling about how the hurricane was closing in on them there. There was great concern due to the size and strength of this storm. I pulled up the tracking and prediction information for Hurricane Floyd and realized just how dire the situation was. Florida is little more than an oversized sand bar. Most of the state is flat and barely above sea level. Between the high winds, the torrential rain, and the storm-driven waves of the ocean, the potential destruction facing Florida that night was catastrophic.

I had learned in childhood the story of Jesus calming the storm and the sea. (Mark 4:35-41)  I also knew that Jesus had told us that we would be able to do what he had done and even greater.  (John 14:12)  By this time in 1999, I was also taking classes at the Learning Light Foundation and studying A Course In Miracles.  I decided to see what could be done about Hurricane Floyd.

I thought about how I could work on the storm. My faith was not such that I could believe that I could suddenly stop a storm in its tracks.  I figured that it would be best and most believable to me to work with the natural laws.  As I thought about it, it seemed that the most natural thing would be for the storm to slow and turn. That was the strategy that I decided to pursue in my work on the storm.

I went into meditation and called upon the angels to help me with this project.  I looked at the weather maps and imagined a shift in the jet stream that might push Hurricane Floyd away from the coast. I visualized the slowing of the spin of the storm, and I commanded the angels to slow the hurricane and turn it north.  I imagined and visualized in my mind a new path for the hurricane that would keep it from making landfall at its full force. I spent quite some time at this task.  I recall still being there working on the storm by the time that the eye of the hurricane was as far north as Cape Canaveral.

Try as I might, I could not imagine a path in which the hurricane entirely missed the coast, but I was able to imagine a path that would have Hurricane Floyd making landfall well up the coast at a much reduced strength.  This is exactly as it came to be. Hurricane Floyd made landfall in North Carolina as a Category 2 storm, exactly where I visualized that it would. Hurricane Floyd was still a very destructive storm there, but the destruction was much less than it might have been in Florida.

I checked in with other light workers I knew to see if anyone else had been working with the hurricane.  It turned out that I was able to find a few others who had done so.  I told them about my experience of visualizing the path of the hurricane.  They told me that they had been using similar methods with the hurricane and had pretty much the same experience with it as well.  They could not get the hurricane to entirely avoid hitting land, either.  The place where we all imagined it hitting land was where it actually did so.

I had an experience a little over a week ago in which I felt that I was being coerced into a situation I did not want.  The person involved claimed that it was a misunderstanding, but this is more about my reaction to the situation than what actually happened.  As the experience progressed, I felt a change in my energy field.

I struggle sometimes to describe sensations that so many people are not yet aware of in themselves and not attuned to feeling.  A sense of energy is not well developed or even recognized in so many members of humanity at this time.  But I think I have come up with a way to describe it or at least how it was affecting me in that experience.

The way I was feeling that day with respect to energy goes back to what I was taught many years ago about the nature of the aura.  The energy of the aura of a person in their authenticity is smooth and even.  It is like the smooth water of a pond at rest.  When a person lies or is otherwise out of their authenticity, the appearance of the aura becomes rippled or shimmering, kind of like the rippled surface of a pond into which stones are being thrown.  It is the result of a type of dissonance.  That is exactly what I felt that day.  It was dissonance.  I could feel the ripple in my energy field, and it was not pleasant.  It was something akin to a mild full-body joy buzzer.

Several days later, after my anger over the event had calmed down, I was listening to a YouTube video of Peter Slattery interviewing Alfred Lambremont Webre.  Among other things, they discussed the topic of parallel universes, AKA the multiverse.  If you recall, I wrote about my understanding of how that might work in my post, Reality Is Like Television.  I wondered then if perhaps that energy reaction that I had might have been the movement from one parallel universe to another.  I began casting about for an answer to that question.

Then I remembered a book that I had received earlier in the week, Traveling to Parallel Universes by Trish LeSage.  In it, she claims to have shifted from one parallel universe to another over 100 times.  She discusses incidents such as I described in my Timestream Jumping post in the section entitled “Non-existent Records.”  The sensations that I described above are consistent with her description of moving to a parallel universe of lower vibration.

She also verified that parallel universes can overlap at times.  When that happens, objects or beings from the “nearby” universe may appear less solid.  In extreme cases, objects from the two universes may pass through each other.  I believe that I may have witnessed loss of solidity in the past as well.  I attended a class once in which the instructor went into channeling mode.  While she was channeling, she appeared to become transparent.  After the channeling was complete, I asked another student if she had seen that as well, and she had.  I’m so glad to have witnesses to some of this stuff because if I didn’t, I’d swear I was losing my mind!

I must say, it boggles my mind that someone could have shifted realities that many times.  I recall how discombobulating it felt when I became aware of the incident that I reported in the Timestream Jumping post.  Think about it:  If you were to shift from one universe to another, you cannot know for sure any of the history of the universe into which you had just arrived.  Some objects may be different.  Buildings and businesses may be different.  At the very least, there would be little point in arguing with someone about what did or did not happen.  You might very well both be right!  Similarly, attachments to persons or objects might be pointless since you wouldn’t know if you will soon shift into a reality in which the relationship is different or doesn’t exist at all.  When arriving in a new universe, there would be little choice than to just go with it.  Fortunately, there tends to be considerable continuity from one universe to the next when a shift is made, according to Trish.

Some time ago, I watched the video, We Are From the Future posted by Garret John.  He described a concept in which plants harvest light with near perfect efficiency even though this is impossible in classical physics.  The solution is so beautifully described in the video that any description I might give would pale in comparison.

I find it interesting that some of the reality shifts described in Trish’s book are essentially escapes from tragedy of one kind or another, much as when a photon collides as described in the video.  For instance, Trish described how she believed that her house may have burnt down with her in it within a nearby parallel universe.  At the very least, her experience presents an aspect of awakening that is seldom considered.

It is clear that I have found my way into the deep end; but if I am going to swim, if I am going to achieve my greatest potential, at some point I must let go of the side of the pool even if that means letting go of everything and everyone I have ever known.  I need to just go with it.

I’m reading two fascinating books right now: Beyond Past Lives: What Parallel Realities Can Teach Us about Relationships, Healing, and Transformation by Mira Kelley and Wishes Fulfilled: Mastering the Art of Manifesting by Wayne Dyer.

Mira Kelley wrote extensively of the nature of reality as revealed by past life regressions.  To begin with, according to the higher selves consulted, all lives are actually taking place at once.  Lives have a multiplicity of versions that exist in parallel realities.  Everything in reality reflects you.  Everything is one.  Everything “out there” is actually “in here.”  Essentially what Mira Kelley is saying is that reality is a hologram.  When a hologram is cut in half, the whole scene can still be seen in each piece.  A piece of the whole contains the whole.  A piece of the whole is the whole.

Meanwhile, Wayne Dyer quotes in his book one of my favorite verses:  “Is it not written in your law, ‘I said, “You are gods”’?” (John 10:34).  And also:  “Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus, who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God.” (Philippians 2:5–6).

These concepts work well together when one considers that everything we perceive is actually a dream.  Consider your own nightly dreams.  No doubt, the you that you recognize is the main actor in these dreams.  The you that you recognize is the thinker and the decider in the dream.  What about the other objects and characters in your dreams?  What are they?  Do they not also originate in your mind?  As such, any of these objects and characters is capable of also being fully informed by your mind.  Any of them has access to any information that you have.  All of them are contained in you.

Now, consider that you and everything around you is a dream in God’s mind.  If God’s dreams are like ours, then everything we see has access to all of God, including ourselves.  We are part of God.  God is us.  This is how Jesus could consider himself to be equal to God, as in the verse above.  Furthermore, in that verse, Paul implores us to do likewise.  If we are in God’s dream, then it is not hubris to do so.  But then of course, we must remember that everyone and everything else in the dream is God also.  Namaste!

Now if you really want a head game, consider:  What happens to the you in your dream and everything else when you wake up?  What will happen when God wakes up?

I spent part of my day watching TED videos.  First up was Ruth Chang: How to make hard choices.

This talk was about recognizing that there are deeper factors in the choices we make that relate to what we value as human beings.

Drifters allow the world to write the story of their lives. They let mechanisms of reward and punishment, pats on the head, fear, the easiness of an option to determine what they do. So the lesson of hard choices: reflect on what you can put your agency behind, on what you can be for; and through hard choices, become that person. –Ruth Chang

There were times in my life when I let convention dictate my choices in my life rather than conviction, or what I felt deepest in my heart.  There were times when I knew that by choosing to do the “right” thing, I was choosing against love.  That has resulted in a life of secret longing.  I have made an opportunity to rectify that longing, but I am faced again with the choice between convention and conviction.

Convention says that I should stay where I am because here, I am prosperous.  Here, I have some surety of my support.  Here, I will know with greater assurance where my next meal will come from.  Here, my physical needs will be met.  But I am also concerned that if I stay here, my passion of spirit will suffer.  If I stay where I am, I will more likely be a Drifter, as Ruth Chang would call it.  My sense of spirit and passion would be restricted.

Conviction says that I should take the leap and go out because I am better supported emotionally and spiritually elsewhere.  A relationship that I have found emotionally supportive has been offered to me again.  In this relationship, I feel my passion expand, and not just in the physical sense.  I feel in this relationship that my sense of my own abilities is expanded.  With an expanded sense of my own abilities, then certainly I would be in a better position to prosper while doing something I love and something that I feel is important.

The other video I watched today (that is important to this post, at least) was How to quit your life (and reboot): Priya Parker at TEDxUHasselt.

This talk offers determining what values are important to you as well as a tip or two in how to make the leap into a life that better fulfills those values. Priya Parker challenges the listener to ask,

What is the biggest need in the world that I might have the passion and capacity to address? –Priya Parker

Priya Parker offers some tools for determining what you value.

If you were to write an obituary of your life, would the result satisfy you? Would you feel that your life had meaning?

Ask your family and friends when they had seen you most alive and most passionate.  What were you doing?  Draw a comic strip about that time.

Get comfortable with discomfort.  Do things like sing while standing in line while shopping, taking yourself out to dinner with no reading material and without your phone, and facing the back of the elevator instead of the door.

Give yourself a “life sentence.”  A business might call this a “mission statement.”  What qualities do you want to express?  What do you do?  Why do you do it?

Do the Dwindling Cash Experiment to explore how you might live at various levels of income.  Determine how you are spending now.  Determine how you might live at various percentages of that income.  Use this information to decide how much income you will need.

Help someone else.  Identify five friends who do interesting work and offer them an hour to help them solve their stickiest problems.  Ideally, what they do should be something other than what you do.

Set a withdrawal date and send out evites.  Inviting others to share in your withdrawal and reboot creates accountability.

Don’t avoid thinking about meaning just because it scares you.  Changes in the Universe are very hard to make, but they’re even harder to make if you don’t spend time thinking about what most matters to you.  …  Changes in the Universe basically need time, and need space, and need risk.  So what I would urge you to do is to think about what matters to you, think about what makes you come alive, and think about what is actually happening in the world.  And then think critically and deeply about how you want to dive in.  Otherwise, you might be cheating the future on all you have to give.  –Priya Parker

A certain complication has developed in my urge to withdraw from my current life.  I think perhaps it was introduced by the gods as an inducement to move out of my comfort zone into my true purpose.  My communications with the gods have revealed that so long as I stayed true to that purpose, the indulgence of that distraction would be supported and protected.  Jesus and Pele have both expressed a sort of preference in favor of the distraction as opposed to where I am now.  It is also possible that the path of my true purpose may ultimately include neither influence.

With respect to the communications with the gods mentioned, I often ask myself if I am just making things up when I am meditating or journeying.  In Shamanism, we are taught that imagination has reality.  Channelers such as Steve Rother will also say that these processes will always feel like we are just making things up.  In other words, the feeling that I am making things up may not make it less real.

The main thing that has become clear is that I have felt stifled where I am.  Ultimately, I guess I have to ask my heart what it wants.  Ultimately, conviction will have to win out over convention.

This item was posted today: Gaia Portal – Prescience of mind is paramount as Gaia enters rapid ascension phase.

The first thing I needed to know to understand this was the definition of “prescience.”  It is “the fact of knowing something before it takes place; foreknowledge.”  Well, I know what I have been told about things.  I am deeply concerned that those who have told them to me are who they say they are.  These things that were said are controversial, and they will almost entirely change my world, if I act on them.  If they were genuine, then there is no question that action must be taken on those things.  Discernment can be difficult when dealing with beings from other dimensions.  Even the most highly advanced among us have been deceived at times.

Another part of the message that caught my attention is “Severance of expired paradigm structures proceeds.”  The grand question here is which is the expired paradigm.

There is something that I need to release.  I prayed about it in the ashrams this past weekend.  There is someone I have been holding anger toward.  This person does not even know me or that they have done anything to hurt me, and yet they managed to claim for themself something very dear to me in such a way that I could not even protest it, such was the finality of what was done.  It was someone else’s carelessness that created the problem, and yet that someone else can seemingly do no wrong in my eyes.  As I discovered the depth of the anger in me about this situation, I realized that I had better find a way to release it lest that anger go out and harm this other person.  Anyone who wants to tell me at this point that anger only harms the one who is angry most likely has no understanding of thought-forms and other ways a person can extend their energy.  But it is my desire to be harmless, and so this anger needed to be transmuted.  I can’t help but wonder if to do so, I will have to surrender that situation entirely.  I would like to think that there is a solution that will not require it, but I also don’t like a certain ghoulishness that this situation seems to create in me.  This most definitely needs to be healed before I can move forward in that situation again.  I will say that I feel better about the situation now than before I presented it in prayer over the weekend.  All of these considerations leave me wondering which are the expired paradigm structures.  What is it, exactly, that needs to be left behind?

One thing that I will say here, lest anyone become confused.  We are a few days into a Mercury retrograde.  Things decided now may yet change.  Decisions and agreements made during a Mercury retrograde are not necessarily permanent.  This is a time when we may encounter setbacks in our progress toward the goals we may have set when Mercury was direct.  We can only wait and see what happens when Mercury goes direct again around July 1.  As I said in the beginning of this post, I know what I was told about what is to happen.  A key person was informed of this information yesterday.  I look at these next few weeks as this person’s opportunity to catch up to what I have already come to accept.

I have of late been concerned about the fairness of taking a settlement.  I found assurance that I have a right to such in an article I read on the Galactic Connection site entitled Ashtar on the Road – Tara & Rama Report 27May 2014.  Within it was cited another article, The Case for Reparations.  At the top of that article was the following quote:

And if thy brother, a Hebrew man, or a Hebrew woman, be sold unto thee, and serve thee six years; then in the seventh year thou shalt let him go free from thee. And when thou sendest him out free from thee, thou shalt not let him go away empty: thou shalt furnish him liberally out of thy flock, and out of thy floor, and out of thy winepress: of that wherewith the LORD thy God hath blessed thee thou shalt give unto him. And thou shalt remember that thou wast a bondman in the land of Egypt, and the LORD thy God redeemed thee: therefore I command thee this thing today.

— Deuteronomy 15: 12–15

So it would seem that my time where I have been justifies a settlement, especially when it is considered that my son feels that I am treated more as a servant here.
