We are Our Thoughts – In the spirit realm, thought is action. We determine our appearance, we influence our environment (the Law of Affinity states we are with others similar to ourselves). Our minds are powerful generators of subjective reality. This is why we are on earth, to train to enable our minds, our personality, our character to correctly use the power given to us.

Organization of Spirit World
Jesus has sent many emissaries to assist our growth on earth. Not all were associated with the Christian religion. China was blessed with the ancient teachings of Confucius, who lived five hundred years before Christ came to our world. Confucius, as Emmanuel explains;
As a missionary of Christ, Confucius had to immerse himself in all the Chinese traditions and accept the imperious circumstances of the environment in order to benefit the country in its ability to fully comprehend (Xavier, 2011, p. 76). Read More.
My latest book, The Spirit World Talks to Us – 12 Accounts from Near Death and Other Experiences, is now available in paperback.
On the back cover, I describe the book:
The spirit world is talking to us … each and every one of us. Most of us are unaware of the subtle signals and soft voices that draw us to listen to our conscience. But they are there, ever hopeful that we may discover the truth about our sojourn on this blue planet.
Occasionally, some of us are drawn up and out and given detailed information and in some cases – instructions. Spirit mentors, people like us, but now on the other side – the reality – are pulling for our successful education in the campus of earth.
These lucky few are given a timeout. They were summoned from the classroom and given a dose of their true state – who they are, why they are here, what they are supposed to learn, and in some cases, their specific mission.
The spirit world, led by the Supreme Intelligence, the Divinity, God, or the Matrix – whatever name you wish to call it – is guiding us. Actively. Precisely. With compassion and love.
The spirit realm fully realizes our new found methods of social interaction and expects those who are exposed to the revelations to share them. The twelve experiences, not only unalterably changed those who lived them, but brought back knowledge for all of us.
The experiences reviewed in this book layout exciting disclosures about the spirit world and ours. We are told about heaven, the different spiritual zones around the earth; how karma is real and why we need multiple lives to learn to become a person who radiates love in all circumstances. We learn that the concept of time is different in the spirit universe and about the basic building blocks of all matter.
In essence, the inquiries that you have had since you began questioning your place in this universe are answered by spirits interacting with the chosen few.
In the spirit realm thought is action, thought creates, thought destroys, and thought is the reality. In our physical world, we believe that many discoveries and actions begin with thought, but in parallel with our human thinking, our planet and our universe carries on ruled by natural laws. Natural laws which dictate how stars are formed, planets are created, continents grow and collide, how the weather changes, how our very buildings stand and eventually decay. All unaffected by human minds. Read More.

An Amazing Expedition Into . . . A Limitless Mind. By Lawrence on July 30, 2016
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
After my Near Death Expedition, and being coached by a Celestial Tour Guide, I must have read over 50 various books, charts and journals on the subject, but this book is truly an incredibly lucid overview of all previous treasures.
In my opinion, if you either have had … or … would like to vicariously experience an amazing expeditions … this is “The Seminal Travel Guide” … of all previously written.
If you would like to literally “know how to” create your own personal depth-of-meaning and understandings about “Your” life … without the cultural clutter and baggage attachments … or institutional dogma, fog or bias … I highly recommend this book on how to create and control “Your” own life while eliminating the useless barriers to your life’s choices.
As your own captain, it will guide and position you on top of “Your” ship’s “Crow’s Nest” with a: i) Meta Scope, ii) a Compass, and iii) your own Sextant or GPS empowering you to chart and record your own “personal” expeditions as to: 1) Where you have been … 2) Where you are currently at … and … 3) Why and Where you want to go to next.

What Happens When a Child Passes Over to the Spirit World – We all are extremely heartbroken when a small soul leaves the earth. But, this is just one step in our immortal journey. A child can revert back to their mature spiritual form, or they can reside in a child’s form and be raised in the spirit world, in order to advance their character. It all depends upon their level of spiritual maturity. Click here to watch my YouTube video.
The question of the origin of the human spirit, our soul, the beginning of our immortality has been in the forefront of introspective questioning by humankind since the beginning of time. While some may believe that we are mere material beings who disappear forever upon physical death, many of us understand the presence of God, the Supreme Intelligence of the universe. We have faith that we have a soul. How did we arrive at being a distinct soul, a spirit is the question explored in this article. Read More.

In their quest to determine the optimal system of government which fits our human condition, the Spirit world deliberately set in motion competing forms of governing. Having had a long history of tribal and kingship ruling experience, they knew these types of organizations did not promote the correct atmosphere for individual and collective improvement that was required. They used ancient Greece to survey a range of regimes from totalitarianism to democracy. Emmanuel surveys the trials of various forms of governments in ancient Greece and compares the results to the regimes that existed in pre-World War II Europe; Read More.
Zabdiel, a spirit leader of a group of spirits, sent to communicate with Rev. G. Vale Owen, presented the topic the degrees of light in the spheres. In essence the amount of light in each sphere is the response of the spirits, through their collective individual spiritual maturity to the amount of external light available to the sphere. These two interact to determine the brightness of any one sphere.
Zabdiel first explains light in our physical world. Light comes from the sun and shines where its rays penetrate. Darkness is merely the absence of light. Darkness to us, is in reality, a lack of a wavelength that our eyes can detect. Hence, the ability of our eyes is a constant, the more rays of light present, the brighter it is to our sense of sight.
In the spiritual spheres, the ability to detect light is not a constant, it is dependent upon the spiritual advancement of the individual. As I have discussed in another article, the brightness (for example, an angel glows with a white light) of a spirit comes from their ability to reflect the love of God. Which is regulated by their spiritual maturity and advancement. This level of attainment also provides a spirit to detect the amount of spiritual faith and light according to their own place in the hierarchy of spirits.
Zabdiel explains the difference of light in the physical and spiritual spheres, by first describing what it is like in the Lower Zone:
“For those who are in darkness are those whose sense of sight lacks the vibrations from without which enable others to have knowledge of those things which to them are external but present withal. Their state is a state if inability to receive these vibrations. When their spiritual facilitates do undergo change then they are able to see more or less clearly.”[i]
As one rises up the ladder of spiritual knowledge and character, the body of a spirit has accompanying greater capabilities. This is a key point, it is as if Mother Theresa, was not only a kind and loving champion of the poor, but she also had superhuman strength and senses; and she could see in the dark and through walls. In the spirit realm your abilities grow with your spirituality.
When a relatively higher spirit descends into a lower sphere, the light, even to their eyes, is not as bright. This is because of the working of the cumulative spiritual health of the sphere and its interaction with light. Zabdiel explains:
“But also these vibrations which convey the knowledge of things to their sense of sight are, in those regions, of a more gross quality than in the regions of spiritual health. So that even to those good spirits who penetrate into those regions, and whose sense of sight is more perfect, yet the darkness is quite apparent, and the light by which they see is dim. So that, as you will understand, there is a response between the spirit and the spirit’s environment, and that response is so accurate and perpetual and sustained as to constitute a permanent state of life.”[ii]
Therefore, by the Law of Affinity, whereby spirits attract other spirits like themselves, their amassed spiritual quotient and the environment itself combine to create the atmospheric conditions of that plane, or sphere. While a higher spirit may have more spiritual force, it doesn’t change the environment of the sphere they have travelled to.
This holds true to all spiritual spheres, the environment is the sum of external light and collective spiritual power of its inhabitants. Zabdiel explains:
“As we go higher in the spheres this responsive action between the spirits and their environment is also maintained and that which we may call the external light becomes more and more perfect and intense the higher we go. So it is that those who dwell in, as we will say, the Fourth Sphere may not penetrate into the fifth, to remain there, until they have become so developed as to sustain with ease the degree of intensity of light there obtaining. Having attained to that Fifth Sphere they soon become used to its light. And if they return to the Fourth, as they do from time to time, that Fourth Sphere seems dimmer to them, while still they are able to see with comparative ease. But if they should descent straight to the Second or First Sphere, they would only with difficulty be able to use those denser vibrations of light and, in order to do so, are obliged to train themselves to see in that same sphere which once was but their normal abode.”[iii]
As even humans do, spirit too become accustomed to their environment. When, on our physical plane, we live for a time in a hot desert environment, we are used to the heat, and when we journey to a colder location, we don heavy jackets, while the locals may still be in shorts. Unlike us, advanced spirits are able to alter their senses with the power of thought and they are able to modify the differences which occur when they travel downwards.
Spirits also come to our sphere to interact with us. Good spirits encourage positive behavior and present opportunities to acquire an understanding of what lies beyond our physical plane, while immature spirits motive many to act out in ways that lessor spirits take pleasure in.
Zabdiel tells us how the higher spirits are able to come to the earth’s sphere and communicate with humans:
“When we come down to your earth sphere we see by reason of the spiritual light which men have in themselves. And those who are of higher spiritual grade than others we see so much the more clearly.
Were it not for faculties we possess other than that of sight, we should, as I suppose, have difficulty in finding our way about, and to those to whom we wish to come. But we have these other faculties, and by their use are able to do our work in ministering to you.
You will now be able to understand that there is a quite literal truth in the words, “Who dwells in light which no man can approach.” For few in the earth life are able to rise many spheres beyond; and the light which streams from above is blinding even to those who are much progressed.”[iv]
We, who are temporarily encased in our physical bodies, swim in a sea of spirits. Spirits of many levels, some who have come to help us and others to hinder and take pleasure in our deeds. The more we learn about the types and capabilities of spirits the more we can filter out the negative influences and embrace the positive vibrations sent our way.
Understanding what the spirit universe actually is and how we are part of it is the first step toward learning how you can perform your own journey to spiritual perfection. You can begin to by reading my book, Explore Your Destiny – Since Your Life’s Path is (mostly) Predetermined. You will discover why we are on earth, what are the different locations circling our planet and what is your ultimate destiny.
Brian Foster was a reluctant entry to Spiritism. He grew up with a vague sense of God and a higher power, but only through events he could not explain did he discover that there is indeed a world beyond ours, an “other side” as the Druids called it.
Brian works in Information Technology and has a BSCS degree and an MBA. For many this should make him a rational human being and not one who believes in spirits. On the contrary, it is what he believes to be an accumulation of evidence that has, thankfully, brought him to realize that we are part of a bigger plan.
