Various Realms of Spirit

and TV signals fill the room we are in right now, and if our eyes
and ears were built a little differently, we would actually be
able to see and hear them, just the way we can see sunbeams streaming
through the window onto the furniture and hear the cat purring
on our lap. We might be overwhelmed by the many songs, the radio
and TV personalities, and the comedies, dramas, news programs,
and action movies all competing for our attention.
room is also filled with countless realms of existence beyond
the physical world—all teeming with life—and again,
if our eyes and ears could see and hear those nonphysical realms,
the room would be incomprehensibly crowded, and we would be completely
overwhelmed by the sights and sounds of the many entities here
it is, the radio and TV signals vary in vibration or frequency,
so that each signal remains distinct even though they're all jumbled
together in the same space. That way, the electronic circuits
within a TV or radio can tune-in to a single signal, allowing
us to hear only one program sent by only one station. The signals
are separated from each other by frequency, so they can't overwhelm
the many realms of existence all inhabit the same space, but each
realm remains distinct by its vibration. In this case it is not
a radio or TV frequency, but rather the vibration of consciousness
that makes each realm of existence unique and discrete, so that
the inhabitants and activities of that realm aren't disturbed
by the many other beings inhabiting other realms, all teeming
can learn to tune-in to some of these many realms through meditation,
in which we learn to adjust the vibration of our consciousness.
Theoretically, if we had the right technologies we could tune-in
to the various realms with radio- and TV-like devices. Well, the
theory in this case is starting to become reality. We are beginning
to learn what kinds of technologies it will take to get in touch
with those other realms. That's what ITC, or instrumental transcommunication,
is all about.
you might imagine, before developing such technologies, it is
helpful first to understand the nature of the various realms.
It's not an easy task, since the various realms of existence are
virtually infinite in number and variety. Through the centuries,
different schools of esoteric thought and different religions
have tried to classify them in different ways. Hinduism, Judaism,
Tibetan Buddhism, Christianity, Islam, and more modern institutions
such as Eckankar and The Monroe Institute, all have their own
systems to classify the various realms.
explored many of those systems, and my colleagues and I have actually
talked to many of the beings in the various realms directly through
technologies, and the result is an exceptional classification
system in terms of simplicity and appropriateness to human minds
and human lives in today's world. If God or Shiva or Archangel
Michael or a little gray E.T. or dear, departed Aunt Martha were
to classify the various realms from their perspectives, the classification
system might be very different, but for us humans here on Earth,
I believe you will find the following system to be remarkably
physical realm is composed of comparatively dense, slowly vibrating
matter and energies. Our own vast physical universe with its many
stars and galaxies is little more than a handful of sand along
an endless, cosmic beach.
quantum realm is a buffer zone between the physical and astral
worlds. From our perspective here on Earth, it is a place to tie
up loose ends after we die and prepare to move on to paradise.
It has also become a rather troubled place.
astral realm is a place of form and structure much like our own
physical world, though the structures and activities in the astral
realm are more malleable—adapting more smoothly to the thoughts
and intentions of the astral residents, who include most people
who once had lived here on Earth.
ethereal realm is a formless world, consisting of pure consciousness
of its ethereal inhabitants, who exchange information more efficiently
and in greater quantity than the supercomputers of our world.
or the source, is at the center of all this. In fact, it is the
pure Light emitted by God which manifests as everything in every
realm of existence.
mentioned, all these realms exist in the same space, and they
remain separate and distinct by the vibration or frequency of
consciousness which forms each realm.
quantum realm is a buffer zone between the physical and astral
worlds. When we die and shed the physical body, we normally live
on in the quantum realm for a few days. We still possess a body
of form and structure nearly identical to our physical body, but
lighter, subtler and more vibrant. This after-death interlude
is supposed to be a gentle, relaxed time during which we get acclimated
to our newfound freedom and lightness of being, and we tie up
loose ends of our recent lifetime before moving on to paradise.
We might visit friends and loved ones at their bedside, when their
minds are in that half-awakened state in which they are consciously
attuned to the spirit worlds, so that they can see our smiling
face and hear our thoughts. Then, after a few days in the quantum
realm, we move smoothly into the astral worlds and settle into
a life of bliss, enjoyment and good service.
how it's supposed to happen, but things are not always as they
should be in the spirit worlds today. While the quantum realm
is supposed to be a gentle, relaxed area for everyone who leaves
the Earth, it has developed dismal pockets of darkness and negativity
where some people get stuck for awhile before moving on to the
paradise of the astral worlds. These pockets of darkness have
been created mainly by humanity's spiritual ignorance and misunderstanding,
which results in a fear of death, and they have become a significant
They boil over and spill back onto the Earth to stir up more negativity
here, and they present an obstacle to many people leaving the
Earth and looking for paradise.
of darkness. As we approach death, we are supposed to be aware
of the paradise that awaits us, and our thoughts and feelings
of anticipation can then give us an inner joy and peacefulness
which we carry along into the quantum realm at the moment of death.
Most people make their transitions in that peaceful way. If ALL
people died in that fashion—anticipating the beauty that
awaited them—the quantum realm would be a place of delightful
expectancy. Instead, some people on their death beds are wrought
by uncertainty, remorse, and fear. Many people don't believe there
is an afterlife. They think that when they die, that's the end.
They regret that they didn't accomplish more while they were alive.
They regret leaving loved ones behind whom they'll never see again.
They desperately want to stay on the Earth, and their desperation
sometimes reaches the level of panic. The troubled feelings present
an obstacle on the road to paradise.
people on their deathbed have vivid dreams and visions of departed
loved ones who approach them, beckoning them home, and those visions
are supposed to be reassuring. Individuals who don't believe in
afterlife are usually confused and often terrified by the sight
of "dead people" in their presence. Some newly deceased
people struggle intensely to escape the people in spirit who have
come to help them find paradise. They struggle to stay attached
to Earth and their living loved ones. Sometimes these confused,
troubled individuals without physical bodies remain in a house
on Earth, refusing to leave—trapped by their own fears and
misunderstandings. Sometimes they are drawn into the pockets of
darkness in the quantum realm which are inhabited by other confused
individuals. So, when individuals who are caught up in fear or
remorse leave their physical body, they carry intense, negative
vibrations with them into the quantum realm.
troubled individuals in the quantum realm are often obsessed with
the physical world, and they shun the spirit worlds. They are
attracted to the spiritual light or energies of living humans,
and if they remain close to a person on Earth, that person experiences
the confusion and troubled emotions in their own life. This is
a situation often called "spirit attachment." Today
there are many deeply troubled souls in the quantum realms struggling
to remain attached to the Earth, and they sometimes become entangled
in the lives of unsuspecting people here. That causes a serious
disruption in many people's lives.
challenge of humanity today is to spread the word of spiritual
reality as quickly and as widely as possible, to wash away the
fear of death which feeds the pockets of darkness in the quantum
realm. It is time to restore the quantum realm to its intended
state of gentle anticipation—a place of smooth and happy
transition from a lifetime on Earth into the paradise of the astral
worlds. And that is one chief purpose of World ITC.
astral realm is a world of form much like the Earth, though astral
structures are easier to affect with thought and intention. Compared
to our dense and heavy physical world, the astral world seems
wispy and ethereal to us, but not to astral residents. Their world
seems as solid and real to them as ours seems to us.
astral realm contains many, many divisions of varying vibratory
rates. Energy healers and others often divide the astral realm
into the "fourth level, or mid-astral dimension, and the
"fifth level," or higher astral dimension. In any case,
the lower that the vibration is in the astral realm, the denser
the substance. After we have shed our physical body, most of us
reportedly "wake up" in our astral body living in the
specific astral region in which substance is vibrating at a rate
compatible to the substance of our astral body. This is sometimes
called our home frequency.
our lives on Earth and beyond we determine our vibratory rate
by our thoughts, attitudes and spiritual understanding. Fear and
resentment produce low vibrations, while love and awe produce
high vibrations. Devotion to a community raises the vibration,
while isolation and separation lower it. Learning with an open
mind raises the vibrations, while orthodox closed-mindedness and
the resulting prejudice (whether religious, scientific or political)
lower them. Attachments to worldly things create low vibrations,
while calm detachment in the Eastern tradition produces high vibrations.
astral realm is much like Earth, though more mental, less physical.
In the spirit worlds thoughts create reality, so as thousands
of people leave Earth and enter the astral planes, the worlds
in those subtler planes take on an Earth-like appearance. Researchers
in many countries report messages from "the other side"
describing concert halls, museums, hospitals, schools and homes
much like those on Earth—but often much more magnificent—all
set in landscapes of trees, flowers, mountains, meadows and rivers
that, again, are like the landscapes here but much more lovely
astral realm is a buffer zone between a dense Earth plane rife
with deception, fear and violence, and the higher, subtle realms
of pure love, Light and wisdom. People in the astral realm can
rest up and enjoy paradise to its fullest before deciding what
to do next. Some people will reincarnate fairly soon to learn
more of life's lessons or to take on special missions in the physical
realm. Others will work with an ethereal guide to learn how to
purify the mind and, in so doing, to raise the vibration of consciousness
so that they can ascend to higher levels in the astral realm,
and eventually find ultimate freedom in the ethereal realm.
everyone moves on right away, however. Some departed souls like
the astral planes so well that they choose to stay for centuries.
Others reportedly return to Earth for one reason or another to
experience another lifetime in a new body.
astral residents still sit around the campfire as they used to
do in their primitive earth life. Others meet in modern halls
of congress surrounded by technical equipment. They give lectures
about life after physical death. Still others do not even know
that they have died. We have been told of skeptical scientists
who hadn't believed in afterlife during their lifetimes on Earth,
and now that they reside in the astral worlds, they no longer
believe in life in the physical realm. Some residents have been
living for over a century. Some live in castles, fortresses or
beautiful mansions, others in tents or teepees—whatever
makes them comfortable. New arrivals have the opportunity to get
to know people-in-spirit of all ages of human history and to meet
unfamiliar, intelligent beings of non-earthly origin. The astral
realm is shared by new arrivals from Earth, goblins, animals,
fish, nature spirits, giants, and others. How readily a newcomer
can accept the many new and unusual things is one factor determining
how quickly he or she can move on to the subtler dimensions.
astral body absorbs everything it needs for its health and well-being
from its surroundings. There is no real need to eat, as astral
residents breathe in their nourishment. Still, astral residents
can eat if they have the desire, and most people fresh from the
Earth carry that desire with them. There is no need for sex, as
there is no pregnancy in spirit, but sex also can be enjoyed in
the astral realm by those who made it a major part of their lives
while on Earth. Eventually there will be more important things
to do than following terrestrial patterns.
are many astral communities or regions differentiated by vibration
and the interests of their inhabitants, and they are typically
clean, pure and well organized. All communities are inhabited
and have ample lakes, rivers, and oceans. There are no pests or
predators. Climate is always spring-like with occasional precipitation
in the form of glowing snowflakes or multicolored, shiny raindrops.
The environment glistens.
arrivals are usually drawn to an astral family of people with
whom they are compatible spiritually and mentally. They suddenly
find themselves without the physical body that needs to be fed,
clothed, sheltered, exercised, and rejuvenated everyday with several
hours of sleep. Suddenly they have a great sense of freedom.
astral body is impervious to temperature and wind. When the body
is cut or hurt it is healed instantly at will.
ethereal realm is a place of divine inspiration free of earthly
desires and conflict. The beings in these dimensions cause many
of the artistic and technical breakthroughs on Earth by sending
silent messages to its inhabitants. Many of the brilliant artists
and scientists who die on Earth wind up here after a short stay
in the astral planes, where they learn to purify their mind. It
is a realm free of structures, so people inhabiting this realm
exist as formless consciousness.
schools have divided the ethereal realm into various dimensions,
which sometimes include the mental-causal, celestial, and cosmic.
The mental-causal plane is said to be on the border next to the
astral realm, and the cosmic plane is where the spirit and soul
merge with the source.
ethereal realm is the home of the Christian God, the Buddha, and
other great beings.
