Deva Premal Miten Music

Posted By Ina Woolcott

Where do I start… my love for Deva’s and Miten’s music started in 2004 after my time im Brazil. From personal experience I can recommend The Essence album, which I fell in love with in Brazil and played over and over again during my pregnancy along with Embrace and also The Deva Premal and Miten Story. When my daughter was born I sang the mantras to her during the day and at night and also had the music on softly in the background. One of my favourite songs has got to be the Gaiatra Mantra, which is to be found on The Essence . I also saw Deva and Miten live in Brighton back in the summer of 2004 with my MUM,and I have to say the CD’s cannot truly capture the beauty, the power and the deep reverberating tones of her voice which go right to your very core and give you goosebumps and make you tingle….absolutely awe-inspiring. I have never heard anyone sing like her. I also have Dakshina, which I refer to as meditating with my eyes open. Absolutely amazing, im listening to it now, I listen to it when I cook, when I lay in bed with my daughter to get her to sleep. We have a huge collection we listen to at night, and this is one of my favourites…(how many favourites do I have?!?!)

Seth Material Jane Roberts Robert Butts

Posted By Ina Woolcott

Jane Roberts 08-05-1929 – 05-09-1984, was an American author, psychic and trance medium or spirit medium who channelled a personality named Seth. The subsequent publication of the Seth texts established her as one of the pre-eminent figures in the world of paranormal phenomena. She also authored novels, short stories, children’s literature and various philosophical texts.

In late 1963, Jane Roberts and her husband, Robert Butts 20-06-1919 – 26-05-2008 experimented with a Ouija board as part of Roberts’ research for a book on extra sensory perception. According to Roberts and Butts, on 2nd December 1963 they started to receive coherent messages from a male personality who eventually identified himself as Seth. Soon after, Jane Roberts reported that she was hearing the messages in her head. She began to dictate the messages instead of using the Ouija board, eventually stopping the use of it. For 21 years until her death in 1984 – with a one-year hiatus due to her final illness – Roberts held regular sessions in which she went into a trance speaking on behalf of the ‘personality essence’ called Seth. Her husband Robert served as stenographer, taking the messages down in homemade shorthand, although some sessions were recorded.- I HAVE HEARD SOME OF THESE SESSIONS ON TAPE, AND I OWN AND HAVE READ MANY OF SETHS/JANES/ROBERTS BOOKS AND I MUST SAY THEY OFFER SOME OF THE BEST MATERIAL EVER ON THE NATURE OF PHYSICAL REALITY, THE PSYCHE, THE ORIGINS OF THE UNIVERSE, THE THEORY OF EVOLUTION, THE CHRIST STORY, THE NATURE OF GOD, THE PURPOSE FO LIFE AND MUCH MUCH MORE ETC. A MUST MUST MUST READ!!

The messages from Seth, consisting mostly of monologues on a very wide variety of topics, are collectively known as the Seth Material. Beginning with the 511th session in January 1970 Seth began to dictate his own books. Roberts claimed no authorship of these books beyond her role as medium. According to Roberts and Butts, these books were published verbatim with only minor editorial corrections. This series of “Seth books” eventually totalled 10 volumes, although the last two books appear to be incomplete due to Roberts’ illness. Robert Butts contributed notes and comments to all the Seth books, and thus was a co-author on all of them.

The Seth personality described himself as an “energy personality essence no longer focused in physical reality”, who was independent of Roberts’ subconscious, although Roberts herself expressed scepticism as to Seth’s origins. The Seth personality said that he had completed his earthly reincarnations and that he was speaking from an adjacent plane of existence – or “system of reality” or “universe”, all terms which Seth used. He described himself as an educator whose task was to impart the principles set forth in the Seth Material to the current generation of human beings.

The Seth personality’s demeanour was notably different from Roberts’, as reported by witnesses who included Butts, friends, acquaintances and students. He could be stern, jovial or professorial, frequently assuming a distinct accent which was not identifiable. Roberts’ syntax and sentence structures were modern and clear when speaking as Seth. Sessions were held at regular intervals, usually 2 weekly. For many years Roberts conducted one, and then two, ESP classes in addition to the regular sessions. With the exception of these ESP classes, Roberts gave few readings to the public and was mostly focused on publishing the Material in printed form.

I strongly recommend anyone who is ready for these books to purchase them. They are first class, amazing, informative reading….

What The Bleep Do We Know

Posted by Ina Woolcott

What the Bleep Do We Know? is a lecture on mysticism and science mixed into a sort-of narrative. Marlee Matlin stars in the dramatic thread, about a sourpuss photographer who begins to question her perceptions. Interviews with quantum physics experts and New Age authors are cut into this story, offering thought provoking theories.

Basic principles of quantum physics are applied to human psychology. In the main this film consists of interviews with experts in related fields, who pose existential questions and answer them with theories of endless possibilities. They explain that reality is only as we define it, that matter is permeable, and that experiences in life should be approached as controllable by the human mind.

Opening doors to broad ideas, e.g. that we could exist simultaneously in many realities, that we could be in multiple places at once, that we could observe ourselves from outside our bodies, that time travels backwards and forwards – experts encourage positive thinking and open-mindedness. A situational plot involving a deaf photographer who is assigned to work at a Polish wedding serves to illustrate how the theories discussed could be applied to everyday experiences. Meanwhile, intense sequences of computer animation offer illustrations of outer space, the neural functions in our brains, the way that various hormones work, and even some funny Jello-like characters representing chemical reactions in our bodies. Anyone on the spiritual path will love this movie, and also the extended director’s cut of the international hit What the BLEEP Do We Know!? (What the BLEEP – Down the Rabbit Hole). Down the Rabbit Hole includes new scientific findings that supplement the original movie, and goes more deeply into the concepts explored. The interviews are lengthened and a full 95% of all interviews is never before seen footage exploring the links between quantum mechanics, neurobiology, human consciousness and day-to-day reality. Featuring 1hour of new interviews and 2 new scientists, Dean Radin, Ph.D., and Dr. Masaru Emoto, and author of The Hidden Messages in Water, as well as Lynne McTaggart author of The Field; and introducing Dr. Quantum in 20 minutes of new animation, this is the deeper film exploration audiences have been asking for.

I have seen the movie and recommend it. Nothing I didn’t know already, but its good to hear the same things over and over again so it really sticks!
