The number one item on your bucket list for this life.

the truth 2

The summer of 2013 was an amazing spiritual experience for me.  In late July, I took a family vacation to Europe where I received additional information about my past lives and had the surreal opportunity to visit my tomb at the Cologne Cathedral.  Two weeks after coming home, I then went alone to the Monroe Institute in Virginia for an intensive 6 day workshop in out of body training.  The course was taught by William Buhlman.  The same William Buhlman that I credited in the last chapter of my book as the inspiration to pursue out of body experiences as a continuation of my spiritual journey.  The workshop experience was absolutely amazing and it generated enough material for a second book and a series of blog posts.

Part of the preparation for the workshop was to read (or in my case) reread Bill’s book “Adventures out of the Body”.  Going over material a second time allows one to pick up information and nuances that I missed the first time around. What really resonated with me from the book was the story when Bill went out of body and met with a group of advanced souls who were spirit guides.  Together they discussed the purpose of reincarnation on earth. One guide made a comment to Bill, “We know how tough being in a physical body can be; we have all been there. The ultimate test is to recognize the truth while surrounded by dense illusions (being incarnated.)”   It took a while but I realized that this guide was (in a very real sense) revealing an important final “exam test” question and its answer to we incarnated souls on Earth.  That is, you must come to learn and accept during your time on Earth that we are not human beings but rather spirits who temporarily exist in human bodies.  We also must acknowledge that our earth existence is only one  of many other realities. This particular “test question” is very hard to achieve because we come into the world with amnesia about who we really are (this makes the earth experience much more impactful and scary). To fill the knowledge vacuum caused by our amnesia, our different earth cultures have generated incorrect beliefs about our true nature, making the discovery of the correct answer even more difficult because almost no one would believe the real truth.   Never the less, the end result is that besides all of the other issues we are learning to conquer on earth, our souls do not get to graduate (and to stop reincarnating) until we also discover this ultimate truth about our true nature!  I found this revelation extremely profound.  Luckily for me personally, I discovered this truth in my current life through my enlightenment, so that’s at least one  thing I can check off my long  to do list.

I came home from the Monroe Institute on a Friday afternoon and early the following morning, I was riding with my brother-in-law Jeff to a cross country meet that our sons were running in.  (This is the same brother-in-law who I wrote about in the introduction of my book who encouraged me to tell my supernatural stories.)  During our drive, the spirits would arrange another one of those happy serendipitous, coincidences that I have experienced before.  Halfway during the trip, Jeff asked me about my Monroe Institute visit.  I started to describe to Jeff my discovery of the “final test question” for our souls as I thought that would be the most important piece of information I could pass along. Just as I was starting to spit out the quote from the Buhlman book, Jeff interrupted me.

“Excuse me Frank, but would you read that bumper sticker on the pickup truck that is right next to us?”

“Sure”, I responded and turned to look at the pickup traveling in the next lane.  On the back cab of the pickup truck was a sticker that read “Epic”.   “What’s the big deal about “Epic” Jeff?”

“That’s our main software competitor who is currently eating our lunch.  I thought it was an advertisement for them.  That’s what attracted my attention.”

I turned to look again and reported, “Nope, it’s not about software, it’s about some music band.”  Then I turned my attention to the bumper sticker that was just to the right of the “Epic” sticker. It read, “The Truth is still the Truth even if no one believes it.”

This was no coincidence but a finely crafted message arranged by the other side!  Jeff was the target of this message.  I laughed and then told Jeff the meaning of the bumper sticker and how it tied into what I was going to tell him.

I hope you heed the message Jeff and don’t blow it. I mean, what are the odds of your next life of having another goofy relative  who just so happens to have one of the secrets of the Universe?   You can actually save some future round-trips if you pay attention now.    But, what’s the hurry? You have eternity to get this question right!

765 years to close the circle

 

Reincarntion Story

Frank at the Dome

Here is a mind blowing reincarnation story that took 765 years to come full circle for one soul.  It all started in the 13th century in Cologne Germany.  The then ruler and Bishop of the Cologne region, Arch Bishop Konrad Von Hochstaden, perceived the need to create a bigger, more magnificent Cathedral to house the bones of the Three Magi that were brought to the City by his predecessor decades prior.  An increasing number of pilgrims were streaming to Cologne to venerate the relics and Konrad saw the opportunity to increase the prestige of the city and to draw even more pilgrims.  Konrad set in motion the process of planning and financing the new Cathedral.  In 1248, he laid the foundation stone for the choir of the cathedral. In 1261, Konrad was assassinated, but the building of the Cathedral continued.  Medieval cathedrals take centuries to complete and this was certainly the case for the Cologne Cathedral.  Building was halted in 1473, leaving it unfinished for 400 years.

In the 1500’s, the soul of Konrad returned to life as Thaddeus, the abbot of the Cistercian monastery of nearby Kamp-Linfort. Coincidently, Abbot Thaddeus did visit the unfinished Cologne Cathedral on more than one occasion, but never realized his intimate spiritual link to the Cathedral.

300 years later, the German government restarted the construction of the Cathedral and it was finally completed to the original plan, in 1880. It was not until August 1st, 2013, that the soul of Konrad once again returned to his cathedral in the body of Frank Mares.

I described my spiritual enlightment and discovery that I had once lived a life as the Arch Bishop Konrad Von Hochstaden in my book My Journey down the Reincarnation Highway.   It was only natural that I would want to visit the Cathedral and took the opportunity during our family vacation to Europe. Our vacation started in London and then we moved on to a few days in Paris.  Finally we took a train to Cologne.  The Cologne train station is situated literally right next to the Cathedral.  When I stepped out of the train station and beheld the sight of the huge and beautiful Cathedral, my face broke out in a big grin. I definitely felt a connection to the place.  Dragging my wheeled suitcase behind me, I rushed to the front of the Dome to get a better look.  I felt entranced and my wife had to drag me away so that we could find our hotel.

During our day and a half visit to Cologne, I visited the Cathedral three times. The first time I went alone when my family was settling into the hotel room. I walked through the massive front doors and came across the holy water fonts.  In my life as Frank, I was always very uncomfortable with Catholic rites of worship, however, in this Cathedral, I took the holy water and made the sign of the cross.  This was the first time I ever did this rite in my current life.  I then went to the pews and knelt to pray (another first for me).  My prayer was simple; I thanked God for my enlightenment in this life. Then got up and took in the magnificent ceiling and stained-glass windows. I then went to the back of the Cathedral in the choir section, the volunteers of the Cathedral were shooing visitors out of the area as the floors were being cleaned.  I only caught a glimpse of Konrad’s tomb, before I had to turn back.

The next morning, Karol and I visited the Cathedral while the kids slept in.  I brought a white rose with me so that I could leave it at Konrad’s tomb.  Together we made our way back to the choir area and stood by St. John’s Chapel where Konrad’s effigy and tomb lays facing a beautiful stained-glass window.  I paid homage to my old self by placing the rose in the iron fence grid that encloses the chapel.  Karol snapped pictures of my little ceremony. I took some time to gaze upon my old face, it was hard to break away and leave that particular experience.

Coming full circle

Right next to the tomb of Konrad, is a large mosaic of Konrad holding the building layout of this Cathedral flanked by his clergy and also flanked by a knight holding Konrad’s sword and shield.  Karen put a picture of me holding my book over this mosaic. This mosaic lies between Konrad’s tomb and a magnificent jeweled golden box that contains the relics of the three Magi.  Karol and I admired the beauty of the Golden box. When you step back and think about, those relics were the very reason my soul started this unique spiritual journey.  I now closed the circle.

Later that day, I visited the cathedral again with my daughter Jani, where visited the cathedral’s treasury museum.  We were cautioned by the ticket clerk not to take photos in the museum.  In one of the rooms, I found the Bishop’s staff (also known as the Crosier or Bishop’s crook) that Konrad once used.  Made of gold it was a stunning piece of art. It was mind boggling to think that I once held that staff in a different body.  I had my Iphone with me.  Although it was verboten, I took a picture of my old staff.  I gave myself permission.  Why not?  This was my cathedral and that was my staff!

I am going to visit my Tomb!

reincarnation stories

Konrad’s tomb at the Cologne Cathedral

Here is a reincarnation story that might be a classic!  I am actually going to visit my tomb in Cologne’s Cathedral on August 1st during my family vacation to Europe.  I don’t think there are many people who can say such a thing.

It all started last winter when my wife was reviewing ideas for our annual summer vacation.  She had her heart set on going to Europe and I saw an immediate opportunity to visit some of my past lives’ landmarks.  With only a limited 12 days to spend, she wanted to concentrate on London, Paris and Salzburg.  I wanted to visit the tomb of Konrad Von Hochstaden in Cologne and Nicholas Des Fours’ castle in Czechoslovakia. For those of you who are married, you know that marriage is always a matter of negotiation, so I had to settle for one day in Cologne.  Konrad von Hochstaden or Nicholas never would have settled, so I like to think that I am making progress as a soul.

I really do not know what to expect when I visit a body that I used to reside in.  Will there be some kind of spontaneous memory? Or some kind of physical reaction?  Or will there be no reaction, because it is said that after souls leave their bodies upon death, they have no real interest in their now useless body.  The body that I will be visiting has not been used since 1261, so I am really not expecting a paranormal event, but you never know.  I am not quite sure what I will do at the tomb; perhaps leave a flower and a copy of my book there.  I definitely will have Karol take a picture of my beside it.

Speaking of past life memories, last week I spoke at a Hypno regression demonstration hosted by Jeremiah Wolfe of Columbus Ohio.  Jeremiah is a hypno-therapist who specializes in past life regression.  In my book, Brenda Posani hypno-regressed me to the time of my WW2 life as Otto.  I had really hoped to see images of that past life during that session, but that did not happen.  During Jeremiah’s event, he had a segment where he hypno-regressed everyone attending the seminar at the same time.  Before going under, I asked Spirit if he/she would reveal some scenes from my Konrad life as I was going to Cologne shortly.  During the exercise, I was so happy to actually see images!  First was a cartoonish image of an Arch Bishop decked out in “all of his” splendor.  When I mentally asked who that was, the word Konrad was written out in cursive.  I then was rewarded with a vision of the dark inside of a large wooden building.  Outside was a log palisade wall that was there for defensive purposes.  I then saw a medieval soldier in chain mail and armor working on the wall.  I later learned that I was viewing the scene through Konrad’s eyes as he was visiting the barracks of his troops.  I thought the experience was beyond cool!  I was really appreciative of finally seeing my past.  When I get back, I will be sure to describe the adventure of visiting “my” Cathedral.

Hanging about on 9

Reincarnation story told by a spirit guide

Otto’s Cap

This post is a reincarnation story and a psychic story all rolled in to one. In my continuing quest to learn how the spiritual world works, I made my quarterly visit to my psychic trainer Brenda Posani for another reading. My specific objective was to interact with my spirit guide Morton. I wanted to learn more about him and to try to establish a more personal relationship with him. If you read my book, you will recall that Brenda introduced me to Morton several years ago in another reading, describing a scene where he was having an egg fight with another guide named Gulliver. Brenda told me then that Morton was my main guide.
Many psychics do have personal relationships with their spirit guides because they can have a 2 way dialogue with them. I do not have this luxury because my psychic messages are limited to yes and no answers. It’s hard to establish a conversation when all you can receive is a simple yes or no. This limitation requires that I initiate all questions with my guide (or any spirit) and it would take a tremendous amount of time to get any interesting information from him. I had used Brenda in the past to have conversations with my deceased father and that worked out very well as my Dad would pretty much communicate in simple English sentences without much symbolism. My hope was that I could set up the same type of dialogue with Morton. I thought it would be helpful to find out about his most important prior lives to get some context about him and why he was assigned to me.
On May 1st during a meditation session at home, I asked Morton if was up for an interview through Brenda, I received a yes response from him. I then asked if I should make an appointment with Brenda the next day which was a Thursday and the answer was no. When I suggested Friday, Morton agreed. I then booked a 2:00 PM appointment with Brenda through her website.
On the Friday morning of my reading, I took the opportunity to go the outdoor gun range at Delaware State Park. (No, I am not getting off on a tangent; my gun range activities that day had a spiritual connection.) My mission was to break in my new M-16 assault shotgun. The shotgun looks and feels like a regular army M-16 assault rifle except that it shoots shot gun ammo. To get the semi-automatic feature to work correctly, the gun’s manual said that you have to shot at least 100 rounds through it to break it in. Since I was going to the range anyway, I brought along some of my German WW2 weapons, the MP-40 submachine gun and my Walther P-38 pistol to also shoot. Since it was a fairly warm day, I wore cargo pants shorts, hiking boots, a solid gray T-shirt and to literally “top it off”, my wool gray-green WW2 German Edelweiss cap. Why did I wear that cap? Maybe by wearing the cap I wore in my immediate past life, I was trying to call upon that life’s military skills to help me with my new unfamiliar gun. Anyway, my look that morning was “military casual.” As usual, I got a late start to get to the range which is a 30 minute drive from home. I had an enjoyable time shooting all three of the guns, but I had to hustle back to get to my appointment with Brenda. I had just enough time to drive back home to stow my weapons back into my gun safe, but I had to take the short drive to Brenda’s office in the same clothes that I wore to the range. I think I faintly smelled of burnt gunpowder. I barely made it to Brenda’s office on time.
Bursting through her door at 2:00 pm, we went to her office to begin the reading. I told Brenda that I had already set up an interview with Morton and that I wanted to have a conversation with him. It did not take long for Brenda to make the connection with Morton, but unfortunately, he was not going to communicate in simple sentences like my dad. He instead stayed with symbolic language.
Brenda reported, “He keeps saying, “Hanging about on nine”. What does that mean?” To help solve this mystery, she then asked me what the ninth planet in our solar system was.
“I don’t know, its Neptune or Pluto”
“Maybe he’s hanging around that planet,” pondered Brenda.
Many times you receive symbolic messages that you just cannot decipher immediately. I tried to move on by asking Morton a question, but Brenda replied that Morton kept on repeating the phrase, “Hanging about on 9”.
Since Morton was being persistent about it, I knew I had to put greater effort into figuring out his message.
“Maybe he is talking about me instead,” I ventured.
“Ok, what does the number nine mean to you?” asked Brenda.
I had to think about that question, because nothing immediately hit me. Then I made the connection.
“The subtitle to my book is “the true story of a man who found nine of his past lives”. If you take those nine lives and put them in chronological order, my World War 2 life as Otto the German Sergeant would be life 9. My guide is obviously referring to me reenacting my “ninth life” this morning by going to the gun range and shooting the very same weapons that I shot in my prior life. Plus I was wearing the same cap Otto would have. It’s fascinating to realize that he was watching my activities that morning and had the wit to make a funny comment about it.
With that funny revelation, we were able to move on where Morton revealed that he was once an explorer in two of his past lives as a Viking, crewing with Leif Eriksson and later was a Spanish conquistador in South America. In a future blog post, I will reveal what Morton’s exploration background has to do with me. All I can say is that after this life, he is going to take me somewhere fascinating!

Can you meet your past life personalities? I did!

Reincarnated past lives

 

Here is a reincarnation story where my past lives intersect with my current one.

The first line of my book repeated the famous quote by J. Haldane who said “Not only is the universe stranger than we imagine, it is stranger than we can imagine.” This post covers a topic that is a great example of what Haldane could be talking about.  To appreciate this, you must be open to the idea that you lived other lives than the one you are living currently. The idea of reincarnation is a stretch for most people, but if you can go along with that concept, I can show you something that I have actually experienced which has to be considered “mind blowing”. To demonstrate this, we must build upon the reincarnation concept.  If one experiences many lives as you go through time, it’s your spirit or consciousness which transitions between bodies.  There must be a time and place that your spirit or consciousness exist in when it transitions from a dead body to a new one.  We can call that in between place “heaven” or the “spirit world”.  It’s a place that you can actually interact with mentally, if you are a psychic or have the ability to achieve astral projection.

 

The famous Robert A. Monroe was one of the pioneers of out of body travelling or astral projection.  He wrote three classic books about the topic and of his travels in the non-physical world.  All of his books are full of wonder, but one quirky situation always captured my attention.  There were at least three times that he appeared to encounter himself face to face when traveling in a past time.  Once he witnessed his spirit leaving his body after his death in an ancient battle.  Another time, a future version of himself rescued his astral projected self from a scary situation after he left his body during his current life.  Another time, he had conversations with the personalities he used to be all in one encounter.  When I read these accounts, I was incredulous which is saying a lot after the supernatural events I experienced. (At that point of my life, I had received psychic abilities and was in regular communication with the spirits on the other side. )How can one possible encounter yourself?  That sounds impossible!  However, chapter 16 of “My Journey down the Reincarnation Highway” explains how time does not exist in the spirit world, that place where our consciousness exists between incarnations.  I realize that this is a concept that few people would be able to wrap their heads around, but quantum physics is already verifying this amazing concept.

 

So if there is no time in the spirit world, then everything exists at one, past, present and future.  If that is the case, then it is quite possible to encounter a prior version of your consciousness on the “other side”. And that is exactly what happened to Robert Monroe.  However, I myself have experienced meeting prior versions of myself. It happened in a psychic reading with my psychic trainer Brenda Posani.  Brenda is a gifted psychic who can see, hear and feel messages from the other side.  Brenda was one of the three psychics who helped me learn about nine of my prior lives or “personalities”. In two of those lives, I followed a pattern of being brutal German noblemen (I was actually able to find their existence and stories in German history).  Both of these prior lives were of medieval warriors of an extremely aggressive nature. Surprisingly, both of them showed up at one of my psychic readings with Brenda.  The first, Nicholas Des Fours, appeared to Brenda as he would be just coming off the battlefield.  His black beard was soaked the blood of those he had just slain.  For the first time ever, I saw that Brenda was freaked out encountering a spirit. I was not troubled by his spirit and actually asked him some questions. I was particularly interested in him as his actions put a big karmic debt on his successor incarnations (me included).I found that he treated me fraternally (if you will) and complimented me that “I was doing pretty well in this life”.  The other personality was of the military arch bishop Konrad Von Hochstaden.  I did not get an opportunity to question him, but Konrad was known for some creepy vices and Brenda was picking up those vibes.  At the end of this session, a more peaceful part of my soul also showed up, the Abbot Thaddeus who lived in the 1500s.  It was an amazing experience to be visited by three different versions of myself! Brenda told me that I would be able to speak with all nine of personalities that I discovered at a future date.  All I can say is that the Twilight Zone is real for me and I just shared another episode of it with you.

Europa will go first

A reincarnation story in the psychic light from the psychic source

 

 

This blog post will not be about reincarnation stories or reincarnation, but rather we go back into the psychic light for a look at a frightening future.

In my last blog post, I told the story of my lastest psychic reading with my psychic source Brenda Posani, where my deceased mother-in-law Mary paid a visit to us. My mother-in-law was absolutely reveling in all of the activities and fun that she was participating in the higher vibration known as Heaven. She was going everywhere, doing everything and having a great time. I was heartened and glad to see that she was doing so well after a tough life. HOWEVER, I did not go to Brenda that day visit with Mom. The reason I went to Brenda was to follow up on a cryptic psychic prediction she made about a year ago when she told me that we would have trouble getting water in the future. Brenda had told me little cryptic things in the past and I store these predictions like a squirrel stores nuts. I then dig them up in the future and have her elaborate on them.  With my recent blog post about rough seas ahead for all of us (a coming economic collapse), I wanted to see if this future event would include a water shortage for us in the United States.
When I asked Brenda to ask Spirit further explain this future water shortage, she told me that the “other side” showed her a picture of a weather balloon. This image signified to me a weather related event which could only translate into the idea of a drought. Last summer, the interior of the United States had a severe drought and our reservoir water supplies in the Columbus Ohio area were greatly diminished to where our lawns could not be watered on most days. I realized that if we had a number of drought years in a row like last summer, water would indeed become an issue. Droughts go in cycles (just like the Dust Bowl years in the 1930s) and greatly affect agriculture. Combining lower crop yields from drought with a high inflation event from a bond market collapse would be a nightmare scenario. I then asked Brenda what comment Spirit had about a coming Economic collapse. Before I tell you what Brenda said, I want to reinforce that economics and foreign terms are not Brenda’s strong suit, so this surprising answer had to come from Spirit. The response was “Europa will go first, then it will come to the United States.” I interpreted the message for Brenda as “Europa” is the European term for Europe and that Europe was already five years into its own economic crisis because of the problems with its Euro currency. It is common economic thought that once Europe collapses economically, it would cause a domino effect that would collapse the American economy and Federal budget because of a spike in worldwide interest rates.
I hope to God that this prophecy never happens, but I had just got confirmation from the “other side”. When will all this happen? For what it’s worth, I asked the “other side” on my own. The answer I received was 2015. Like I said, I hope this is wrong and never comes to pass. But I am getting ready for this big life lesson.

 

The United States is in the midst of one of the biggest droughts in recent memory. At last count, over half of the lower 48 states had abnormally dry conditions and are suffering from at least moderate drought. More than 80% of seven states were as of last week in “severe drought,” characterized by crop or pasture loss, water shortage and water restrictions. Depending on whether the hardest-hit regions see significant precipitation, crops yields could fall and drought conditions could persist for months to come. –Excerpt from Foxnews article 3/21/2013 http://www.foxbusiness.com/markets/2013/03/21/seven-states-running-out-water/#ixzz2OOsOv294

Reincarnation Press Release

Spirit Guides help me find my IPhone

Adjustment bureau psychically looking for the psychic light

 

Today’s post is not about reincarnation, but we head back into the psychic light to see what people with psychic ability do with their psychic power. (I know, that’s a lot the word “psychic” being used there, but I have to do that to pay the bills. Now, on with the show!)

At the end of my book, I have an appendix where tell a number of short funny psychic stories that I got involved in. One of those stories involved using my clairsentient ability (feeling) to find lost things. To refresh your memory, I would ask to find a given lost object (keys, wallets, etc). My specific procedure would be to connect to the psychic source and ask if the lost object was in a given room or I would point my finger and ask if the object was in that direction. Either method would result in a yes or no headshake which after a number of repeated questions would lead me to the lost item’s location. My wife Karol would ask, “Who is giving you this information?” My answer would be the Source, aka the Universal Consciousness, aka God him or herself. That answer alone started to make me feel squeamish. After all, God is not my valet. I am greatly appreciative of the divine help, but having God as a helper in trivial things makes me feel uncomfortable. To get around this political issue, I realized that all souls have a right to universal information. That is every event, no matter how large or small is recorded, even where I put my stupid keys yesterday evening. So instead of tapping into the Source and asking where my keys are, I simply request access to the universal information data base and psychically ask for the location. It works just as well and it shifts the work to me rather than God. Recently, I noticed a change in how this search mechanism works. Originally, the other side just made the process easy for me by telling me which room the object was in. It was very similar to when I first got my psychic abilities and the spirits would spell out complete words to any reasonable question that I asked. As time when on, that game changed to just giving me the first letter of a word and how many letters the word contained. (The game was changed to psychic Wheel of Fortune.) In the search for lost items game, I noticed that instead of telling me where an object was, the other side would indirectly lead me to it. I will give you a few examples that happened over Christmas week. Karol drives herself ragged during Christmas week, it is busy at her store and she has her Christmas preparations. When you run around at 1,000 MPH things get misplaced. The first object was her Iphone, which she could not find despite tearing the house apart. A crabby, frustrated wife is not in my best interests, so I stepped in with my amazing search talent. Our house has two staircases on either side of the house that goes down into the lower level. Starting at the kitchen, I started pointing my finger and received a lot of no headshakes at rooms where the Iphone wasn’t. Walking at a quick pace, I blew past the non relevant rooms and was coming almost to the end of the circuit when I saw her missing Iphone on a library shelf in the lower level hallway. Karol was absolutely amazed and gratified that I found the phone within 2 minutes. My talents were again tested when she misplaced the gift cards that she bought our kids as stocking stuffers. She was again at a frustrated boiling point when I stepped in. Psychic directions brought me to our bedroom, but there was Christmas debris everywhere, so finding small cards was not easy. I was directed to my nightstand where I went to look. Standing over the nightstand, I was then told that the cards were not there. Instead of being frustrated, I just went along with the game, having a benign confidence that I would be eventually shown where they were. I then made an immediate about face from the night stand and noticed the 4 level wooden shelf immediately across from the room. Is it there I asked? Yes came the headshake. I walked over to that shelf and there the cards were on the lowest shelf. Karol’s face once again showed utter amazement. “You are amazing!” she said. I responded, “Just be grateful that the spirits like you.” Just yesterday, I lost my Iphone. I had to go someplace so I was getting frustrated by not being able to find it through conventional means. I tore apart our kitchen, bedroom and my office without success. I should have known better, I already got the psychic tip that it was not at those locations. I just did not believe that because logically it had to be in one of those three rooms. I surrendered completely to the psychic search method, where I was lead to the leather couch in the downstairs great room. Once I sat down on the couch, I looked behind me and saw my Iphone sitting on the sofa table behind the couch. I had put it there last night when I was playing one of my sons in table tennis. In my book, I make reference to the spirits of the Adjustment Bureau (like in the Matt Damon movie). I can just picture them moving me around my house like a puppet on a string during the searches to find my lost items!

What’s important in life

Talked to him through a clairvoyant

My Dad

Psychic medium and clairvoyant James Van Praagh was very important to my spiritual growth because in his book, “Unfinished Business”, he told the story of 3 young men who died in Vietnam and then died again together in a car accident in California to pay off a Karmic debt for a cruelty they did in Vietnam. This story gave me the clue that my soul was in a similar debt position for something bad I did in a prior life. As such James is one of my psychic heroes and I follow him on twitter. He recently tweeted that “The secret to a successful life can’t be found in money or possessions, but in love for self & others, & compassion for all living things.” I actually have a quote beyond the grave from my father. (The story of this psychic reading that connected to my dad is also in my book, “My journey down the reincarnation highway”.) My dad told me in the reading that “I want you to know that, in life, I put on a very confident face. In truth, though, I was unconfident and many times unsure of myself. I regret that I put too much emphasis on material things. These things really are unimportant. I should have been putting more emphasis on relationships. Relationships cannot be bought.” There you go James, your words are validated from beyond the veil!

Adopting your soul’s past as your own

Reincarnation of konrad von Hochstaden in the psychic light

 

Originally posted on 11/10/2012

Today I want to discuss incorporating reincarnation into your personal history.

Take a moment and look back at your life. Recount the things that you did and accomplished. You probably will say that you went to such and such school and married so and so. You will also remember a laundry list of accomplishments and failures. This history defines you as a person. Because of my discovery of what I did during my past lives, I am a little different. I have mentally added those past life accomplishments and dirty laundry to who I am today. I really have adopted these experiences as my own. For example, if you have read my book, you already know that my prior personalities:

  1. Laid the cornerstone of the Cologne Cathedral.
  2. Ordained St Thomas Aquinas as a priest.
  3. Bought a castle
  4. Was the right hand man to the Holy Roman Emperor in the 1600s
  5. Murdered seven people in the 1600’s.
  6. Was involved in a land embezzlement that eventually got me killed.
  7. Saved six soldiers (and myself) during a tough retreat in the snow in Russia in WW2.

Good and bad, I have accepted and added these experiences to my current life experiences:

  1. I went to Cleveland State University and earned two degrees.
  2. I married Karol and had 3 children.
  3. I managed to create one successful business.
  4. I really was not that good as a salesman.

What does it all mean? I guess you can say that I think at a soul level rather than a human level, I think in the psychic light. Does this thinking help me in my human life? Not really, as I think most people think that I am nuts. But I do believe that my acceptance of my prior life past helps me out on a soul level. If it cuts down on the number of remaining lives I have to live, I will live with people thinking that I am nuts.

Today’s topic is about the local impact of one of my reincarnation stories without getting into past life regression or past life regression therapy (my apologies to Dr Brian Weiss). In my book, I write about a life-long obsession with World War 2 despite the fact that I never served in the military in this life. My knowledge (through reading)of infantry subjects is so extensive that anytime I talk to a serviceman or a veteran, they automatically think that I once served and inevitably they ask me what my unit was. A few doors down from me, one of the moms on my street served in the Gulf War when she was younger. She is very friendly, extremely funny and vivacious. She is also a very serious Christian. When we got into a conversation about her service time, she fell in the same trap as the other vets and she actually refused to believe that I never served. After trying to convince her of this, I took the risk of telling her the truth that I was a reincarnated German soldier. She of course thought I was really pulling her leg, especially when I told her that I was writing a book about my prior lives. She did not believe me until I showed her the e-mail from my publisher that awarded my book “Editor’s choice”. The neighbor, “Suzy”, now knew that I was serious. She told me she would read my book if I would then read one of her bible study books. I knew that she was doing her Christian duty, which I respect. But she had no idea that I had stepped into a supernatural twilight zone for 3 years and the mere thought that reading one bible study book was going to reverse the impact of my 3 year experience was incredible. I told her that I appreciated the gesture, but for me, it was a matter of been there, done that. After all, as I served lives as an Abbot of a monastery and as a Arch Bishop Konrad Von Hochstaden, I had already “punched” my ticket as a high level Christian; it was my time for other ways. Suzy wasn’t the only one to offer me the “book” exchange. My sister-in-law Joyce is a lovely person who is a committed born again Christian. She was initially delighted that I found God, but she really can’t get her head wrapped around the God that I found. Despite assuring her that it’s actually the same one she prays to, she made the same offer Suzy did. Sorry Joyce, thank you for your offer, but been there, done that. The whole situation gives me an understanding of what gay men must go through with well meaning relatives. “If only we can fix Todd up one time with that beautiful Rachael, that would change the path he is on!” But it’s not going to work with Todd because Rachael is not his path in life. It’s the same with me; organized religion is not the path I am taking now. But no harm, because in the end, all of our paths will eventually meet up at the same destination. In some future life, Suzy and Joyce will travel on another path just to see what it is like. .
