Inspiring Teachings/Videos/More... / Flipside: A Journey Into the Afterlife
« Last post by Deb on January 18, 2020, 10:32:03 AM »
This is a documentary I came across in a roundabout way, started by jbseth's post on NDEs. Long story short, I came across a Quora post by a man (Richard Martini) who mentioned he made a documentary about Michael Newton (a hypnotherapist) who has become well known due to his work in past-life regression. Newton explains in this video that he was a skeptic and sort of "fell into" this speciality by accident when he was using hypnosis to treat a patient. The person regressed to an injury in a past life that was causing pain in the current life. Newton has written several books about past-life regression. I read one or two a couple of years ago, they were interesting. I don't recall if Newton ever mentioned simultaneous time in them, which would change the idea of "past" lives to concurrent incarnations. I found the documentary very interesting and a lot of what's said fits in with Seth for the most part. It's available on Amazon for $1.99 and is 1.5 hours long. It's not really professionally done cinematically, but it's the stories I'm interested in. This is something that really stuck out to me:

A woman who has been hypnotized and regressed to a life of being in a concentration camp during WW2 talks about her experiences of being imprisoned, then dying in a gas chamber. Later, at about 46 minutes into the film, she explains (from her perspective of being nonphysical in between lives) what is learned from things such as the Holocaust. It was surprising but clear. The man speaking here is the hypnotherapist. I've added the bracketed and parenthetical stuff for clarity:

Quote from: the documentary
Caption: "In front of her council, she learns why she chose a life during the Holocaust."

Woman: All of the participants [victims and perpetrators] collectively showed others about love, greed, hate, love, strength, enduring, enduring no matter what, surviving the worst on a deeper level.

Man: You mean those in the camps?

Woman: Uh-huh. In the camps, but also those that participated.

Man: Those who participated as well?

Woman: Those who participated also. It was like two… there were many polarities being played out and all participants were a part of that demonstration.

Man: So even the ones we would call the perpetrators had a role in this. Is that right?

Woman: You know, from this side [nonphysical] (sighs)…

Man: From your council… [these are the guides/council during the "debriefing" phase in the nonphysical]

Woman: From this side of where I stand (sigh) it was much easier to be the victim than the perpetrator. I know that sounds really harsh, but it was much harder because the pain of the soul, even though everyone agreed, the pain of knowing that you could cause such suffering… terrible hurt to people… was unbearable for many of them. And, not standing up. It's about courage.

There was a woman regressed who was less convincing than the rest, she talked about being with Jesus. I could have done without that (no beard, trimmed hair, sounded Caucasian, light brown hair, gold-brown eyes, she sounded too subjective). Here's a short trailer. BTW if you decide to watch the documentary, and then decide it's not that interesting, I would suggest you scrub ahead to the last 10-15 minutes. I thought that was a real bonus.

I just had a thought—Seth said we have lag time when creating in the physical plane as a sort of safety net. Since we're learning how to use energy, it keeps us from inadvertently creating.
Deb, that is interesting. It would be scary if my thoughs are immediately manifested as physical reality.
When Dossey refers to the genetic inheritance of good luck, he is thinking of the "survival advantage" in evolutionary terms. If good luck runs in a family it is likely to be due to a combination of genes, verbal communcation, and upbringing. I can think of a family of dogmatic Christians who had rather bad luck.

How I understand this is that if one is trying to create one's own reality, the result may appear as unusual luck.

I agree, Seth is saying in these areas of super conducive energy (coordinate points), if things go wrong too often a person would attribute that to incredibly bad luck, or if things always go right, incredibly good luck—if they don't subscribe to the idea that we make our reality. But the person is still making their own reality, regardless to what they attribute it.

I just had a thought—Seth said we have lag time when creating in the physical plane as a sort of safety net. Since we're learning how to use energy, it keeps us from inadvertently creating. He also says that in non-physical, creation is much easier and faster with no lag time. So, do you suppose in these super-charged coordinate point areas, its "frequency" is some middle ground between F1 and F2?

I like what Dossey says about how psi abilities would "look much more like what we call intuition and … luck—just what is required to get the job done, and no more…" etc. I think that's the way it's supposed to be, but we trained it out of ourselves. I think everyone has the potential for psi ability, it's not limited to a certain strain genetic strain of people. I have seen esp skills run in families, but that could be learned.

I found this Seth quote in which he mentions "unusual luck":

""The more intense your imagination and inner experience, therefore, the more important it is that you realize the methods by which this inner experience becomes physically real. Your thoughts and emotions begin their journey into physical actualization at the moment of conception. If you happen to live in an area where the coordinate environment is strong, one of those areas I have spoken of as unusually conducive, then it will seem that you are deluged by illnesses or disasters, if these are the nature of your thoughts, because all thought is so fertile in this environment. If, on the other hand, your feelings and subjective experience are fairly well balanced, fairly optimistic and creative in a constructive manner, then it will seem to you that you have been blessed with unusual luck, for your pleasant suppositions will come to pass so quickly." (from "Seth Speaks: The Eternal Validity of the Soul (A Seth Book)" by Jane Roberts)

From the Kindle edition: http://amzn.eu/bF2Zu7B

How I understand this is that if one is trying to create one's own reality, the result may appear as unusual luck.

Larry Dossey points out scientific study has confirmed that some people are in fact luckier than others, but Dossey attributes good luck to the person's genetic makeup, which is I think highly debatable:

"If psi abilities evolved to help us survive, what would they look like by now? They probably would not be flamboyant but would be quite ordinary, perhaps even unnoticeable. We would use them without thinking much about it, like using our eyes or our legs. They would probably “look much more like what we call intuition and … luck—just what is required to get the job done, and no more…. Intuition would not be limited to occasional creative flashes but would include the act of acquiring the information to guide the mass of petty decisions that go into being in the right place at the right time, or avoiding the wrong place at the wrong time”—which is what natural selection is all about. “[L]uck would not be simply winning lotteries or card games. Luck … would be a generalized success factor—getting more than one’s share of life’s breaks.” In short, “The psi component of luck would be … shifting the odds in one’s favor….”" (from "Be Careful What You Pray For, You Might Just Get It: What We Can Do About the Unintentional Effects of Our Thoughts, Prayers and Wishes" by Larry Dossey)

Deb, thanks for finding these quotes. It seems to me that there is common ground here between Seth and the scientific viewpoint of Larry Dossey.

Interesting how Dossey uses the term "commit suicide," I've not heard that used in terms of cell death before. But as Seth said, any death could be termed suicide since we predetermine our deaths before we even inhabit these bodies. Seth did talk a lot about cell death, I've added a few more below. To me it's like Seth saying that viruses are sometimes necessary in order to reset or cleanse the body (something like that).

"survival is dependent upon the cell’s innate wisdom: The cell must die finally for the body to survive, and only by dying can the cell further its own development, and therefore insure its own greater survival. So the cell knows that to die is to live."
—UR1 Section 2: Session 688 March 6, 1974

"Here cells die and are replaced. Knowing their own indestructibility, the CU’s within them simply change form, retaining however the identity of all the cells that they have been. (Intently:) While the cell dies physically, its inviolate nature is not betrayed."
—UR1 Section 2: Session 688 March 6, 1974

"In the body certain cells “kill” others, and in so doing the body’s living integrity is maintained. The cells do each other that service (with gestures). In the exterior world certain animals “kill” others. You had for centuries, then, speaking in your limited terms, a situation in which men and animals were both hunters and prey. In those misty eras7 — from your standpoint — these activities were carried on with the deepest, most sacred comprehension. Again, the slain animal knew that it would “later” look out through its slayer’s eyes8 — attaining a newer, different kind of consciousness. The man, the slayer, understood the great sense of harmony that existed even in the slaying, and knew that in turn the physical material of his body would be used by the earth to replenish the vegetable and animal kingdoms."
—UR1 Section 2: Session 688 March 6, 1974

"Each of you automatically heal yourselves day by day, as you know. Cells die and are born. You renew your bodies every seven years, all without your conscious knowledge. You use the energy of the universe to heal yourselves constantly, but you have very definite conceptions of how this healing can take place and what is possible and what is not possible. You expect the cells of your body to be replaced. You expect your image to continue day by day, although the physical matter of your image today has not one atom or molecule within it that was a portion of your image ten years ago. The bodies that you had ten years ago are dead and gone, and you never missed them, and you do not feel dead."
