We have a picture in our minds of God, an image of a Zeus-like entity overseeing the heavens. With Jesus at his side reigning over the multitudes of the Celestial Empire. This is what we expect when we pass over. Read More.
In the tenth level of Heaven, the spirit Zabdiel created a live dove from his will power alone … as an object lesson to young children. He revealed the potential power we possess as we ascend as a spirit. All is possible if we work for it. Read More.
Zabdiel, a high spirit from the tenth level of heaven, as it is designated for the convenience of us on earth, walked through a small village and noticed small, but well-appointed homes … until he saw a house in a slightly inferior state. Knowing that spirits on the tenth level had the power to configure their homes to their satisfaction, he asked the village elder about the people who lived there, he was told: Read More.
Spiritism revealed to us, as others have done so, that we live on a planet where we coexist with spirits. Spirits good, bad, and indifferent … we come into contact with them wherever we go and do. What is unique to the message of Spiritism is that our behavior and innate character determines the type of spirits who are attracted to us. Read More.
Horse drawn carts, chariots, groups of people walking to the shores of a great ocean to greet new arrivals, all under the leadership of a high spirit … sounds like a passage from a fantasy novel. Which we read to escape our often disappointing and chaotic life. We long for a world of light and love and filled with beauty. Of friendships lasting forever and kindness spilling out from each and every one of us. A place where animals are our willing workmates and the delight of form outweighs function. This is real. This is heaven. Read More.
According to Zabdiel, there are two types of spirits on earth, which includes incarnates and discarnates. One is the type which realizes the earth is a place of learning, a location to mold their character, and then return to the higher spiritual spheres. The other is bound to the earth. Attached to earthly pleasures and materials. Read More.
Various spirits came to the Rev G. Vale Owen in his years of recording communications from the other side. His mother came first, then other spirits, from higher levels than his mother, initiated conversations: Castrel, Astriel, Zabdiel, and Arnel.
They all agreed on how they would describe the different levels of heaven circling the earth. They were quite explicit in saying that their numbering system was not universal or perfectly accurate – only that it provided a good approximation of the steps of paradise. Read More.
“At every age, in the beginning, the High Ones, so we are told, take counsel. Results accruing from sometime ages are gathered and laid before them. Those of ages very ancient are rehearsed in tabulated form and briefly. Those of the nearer ages are given in greater detail. Those of the ages last past in full. These are considered in their bearing upon events at that time proceeding on earth. Then the cognate planets have their hearing, and next both earth and them together. So the Council gets agait, and, with no hurry, comes at such conclusion as, when put into operative form for the next age, will be harmonious with the acts of other Hierarchies who have in charge the guidings of planets other than this of earth.” Read More.
Who are we, what do we feel when we just pass over from the physical to the spiritual realm? The transition is difficult for many. We are told about the complexities of adjusting by the Reverend Owen’s mother, who communicated to him in his book, which is a collection of four of his books, Life Beyond the Veil, in The Lowlands of Heaven section. She tells us about one person who is experiencing the learning curve: Read More.
The higher the spirit in the hierarchy of heaven the more power they possess to use their mind to shape and transmute elements. The ability of High Lords to affect objects in the spirit and physical universes is vast. Jesus Christ is the High Lord who governs over us on our globe and several other planets.
Zabdiel, in his communications to the Reverend G. Vale Owen, supplies a small example of how higher spirits shape the environment around them to do their bidding. In a previous article I wrote about how Zabdiel revealed to us how, through the power of will, a high spirit manipulates matter.
Zabdiel was part of a group who accompanied a group of spirits, who were visitors from another sphere, to a lake. Where upon the spirits were to board boats and journey to their home level of heaven. During the final words of goodbye, Zabdiel spotted one of the high spirits of his sphere, who Zabdiel called a Prince, was approaching by air, with his attendants. Zabdiel tells us that spirits take pleasure in pleasing others by showing them effects manifested by their creativity:
“Far up in the heavens we saw them, as they moved slowly, circling about the Prince from whom to those in circle went threads of vibrations of different quality, and so of different color. These he of his will sent forth, and those his subordinates wove a network of curious design and very beautiful; and where two threads crossed there the intensified light shone like a stone of brilliant hue. And the knots were of many colors owing to the varying combination of threads entering into their construction.
When this was complete the circle widened out drew away and left their Prince alone in the midst. And he held the net by its middle in his hand, and it floated out around him like a many-colored spider web. It was very beautiful.
Now, that net was really a system of many qualities of vibrations woven together. He loosed it of his hand and it began slowly to sink as he rose through it, until it was level with his feet. Then he raised his hands and descended with it. And as he came he looked through the net at the boats below; and he made slow movements with his hands in their direction.
Then they began to move on the water as of themselves, and so continued until they floated in a circle. Then the net descended and settled over them, and we saw that they were all within its circumference, and also that, as it lighted on them, they passed through it and it sank and rested upon the water. Then the Prince, standing on the net and on the water, in the midst of the boats, waved his hand in greeting to them. And the net slowly arose from the water, lifting the boats with it, and floated upward into the air.
So away over the lake they went together, and the company of our sphere closed in around them, and sent up a song of Godspeed as they floated away towards the horizon over the lake.”[i]
Now you know why you are on earth … to accumulate the required mental discipline to use your mind for fantastic creations, all for good. No small speck of unadulterated evil could be allowed to reside in a spirit with immense power.
Every trial you suffer and emerge a better person is one small step toward climbing the ladder toward perfection. To a future where you can give unlimited love and kindness; and help those in need. We are truly blessed to be given this opportunity on earth.
The spirit realm and the many levels of spiritual spheres are further explained in my book Explore Your Destiny – Since Your Life is (mostly) Predetermined. The reason for your life is revealed and the workings of the spirit world are introduced in this book. Find out that you have a higher purpose and that you are an immortal soul.
