It took weeks to synchronize our schedules and find a time slot when my friend Jimmy – who is on the other side of the planet – and I could connect. Finally something clicked and I got the message, “Let’s do it!”
Early morning for me; late evening for him.
This time we both had good Internet connections so we were able to use video not just voice unlike when one of us was traveling and teetering on the edge of reliable connectivity.
Jimmy looked comfortable on his living room sofa and we chatted about our respective projects and interests. I said that he looked happy. And yes, he agreed, marriage was suiting him very well. And so was a less hectic life-style.
He called his wife Sylvia to join us. She was shy and wanted to be presentable for the foreign friend but then she did settle in on the sofa next to him. We exchanged the usual pleasantries.
Jimmy then explained that Sylvia was gradually becoming competent at channeling an entity named Savatia. I was startled when he went on to suggest that she should in fact do this as part of the call. I watched as she centered herself, moved inward, and began. Not long after she affirmed that the connection was now established.
Then Jimmy said that I should also try to connect to my own guides that I had been just speaking about and that perhaps both guides could communicate. But that was not what happened. Instead, I began to have a direct, non-visual sense of the presence of Savatia – a tall, powerful, male presence. Benign but powerful. Through Sylvia’s voice I heard that Savatia was pleased to be introduced to Jack – pleasantries are helpful on the spirit side as well! Sylvia continued to report but at the same time another direct communication was taking place between Savatia and myself. A sensation inside and a movement. This communication was confirmed by Sylvia’s words – but the words were only a confirmation and conveyed little of the actual experience of being in direct communication. In fact it felt a little as though a substance was being exchanged, a substance for which words could only ever be but a pale reflection of the taste.
Jimmy then directed my attention to the fact that Sylvia had been troubled recently when she did her channeling by the intrusion of dark entities. Could Jack help? I said that struggling with them as she had been doing was not such a great idea. Ignoring was better. Don’t give them energy. And to concentrate on her connection to what is above and on her connection to the Earth below. Then I added a specific exercise for her to do bringing light into and around the body.
“You see, Sylvia, I told you a few days ago that you needed help with these difficulties and that you needed to take action and now Jack is here to help you,” said Savatia.
Jack’s ordinary personal consciousness begins to scream: “If you put this on your blog everyone will be firmly convinced that you are totally nuts!”
Laurent Huguelit’s recent book on cybernetic shamanism provides a clear explanation of this phenomenon. He speaks of a progression of eight levels of consciousness, each one leading on to the next but also with vertical communication between related pairs. Our problem is that we become stuck, lodged in one level only and then deny the existence of other levels and starve them. Typically, in our so-called Western world, we have no connection with the body, we live in the intellect, we are convinced that feelings and emotions are barbaric, and that the recognition of other dimensions, other worlds is a form of insanity.
But we don’t need to be stuck. And Huguelit provides a map. His book is currently in the process of being translated from French to English.
