Spiritual Answers from the Higher Self - A Divine Dialogue 8
It is postulated that Humankind has an enormous ‘Reservoir’ of ‘thought’ on which we can all draw. This, it is suggested, is an incredible pool- no, a veritable ‘ocean’ of prior thinking. It is the thinking of all who have ‘gone before,’in history. Additionally, we have the subconscious minds of the six billion or so people presently residing on the earth plane. We draw on these, too. This is assuming the world-renowned psychologist, Professor Carl Gustav Jung was right.
The Collective Unconscious
Carl Jung called this vast ocean of thought our ‘Collective Unconscious.’ That we can draw from this ocean does not seem too incredible to me. Though I don’t pretend to understand it. What does seem incredible, is that we appear to be able to draw not only from ‘human-made’ thought, but also draw into our minds concepts it is doubtful any human being has ever thought of. How is this possible?
To our knowledge no one, until the Industrial Age of the late Eighteenth, Nineteenth and early Twentieth Centuries had ever conceived a steam locomotive, an automobile, an engine-powered aero plane, radio telecommunications, and the like. Surely such concepts were not ‘already held’ in our Humanity’s Collective Unconscious. Nothing remotely like these inventions ever appears to have been thought of in eelier times How then, did we come to ‘imagine them’ into existence? From what other ‘reservoir’ or ‘ocean’ were they drawn?
We straddle a frequency (energy) gammut and our physicality is only a small part of that spectrum
Humankind is not alone in the universe
Yes, I am aware that each of these concepts were based on ‘putting together’ preceding ideas- but how the quantum leap?
It is almost a certainty that Humankind is not alone in the universe. Indeed, with all those trillions of stars and the planets which whirl around them, it would be the vanity of vanities to even suggest that we are the Universe’s highest life form. But we haven’t contacted any other life-forms (life as we know it) so far, so it does not seem unreasonable to assume that such life forms are not communicating with us.
The Human Auric Field
We bring down a creative thought from higher planes
It has been postulated by some, and stated almost excathedra by others, that Humankind has access to ‘Great Beings,’ creative entities who live way up on the Higher Mental Planes, the Causal Planes, and perhaps even higher than these, which are able to ‘rain down’ so to speak, or ‘precipitate into’ the human minds of those who have sufficiently prepared themselves to receive these ideas. Not only this, but that these ‘Great Beings are ‘continually imagining and creating,’ causing things to come into manifestation.
The link here, to Automatic Writing, is that if totally new concepts can be received by the ‘prepared’ minds of inventors such as Edison, or Scientists such as Einstein, is it possible to receive same via Automatic Typing?
Response from my Higher Self
No, Tom, it is not. The mind of that person who is currently practicing Automatic Writing is entirely governed by that person’s day-to-day interests. If the person is of a ‘spiritual nature’ then spirituality is what he or she will receive. If that person is interested in, say, gardening, then insights will be provided that make him or her a better, more competent, and effective gardener.
Your life is governed to a great degree by your interests. If you want to ‘save the world’ then you will be thinking along entirely different lines than a person who wishes to ‘make a million bucks’ so they can enjoy themselves.

You bring into your life what you think about most
Do not think for one moment here that I am moralizing. I care not what you ask for yourself. What you want you will get. In one way or another, and at some time or another, you will bring into your life that which you think about most. It is one of my most fundamental laws that you do so.
Now, where does all of this come from?
It comes from Me.
What do I mean by ‘it comes from Me?’
I mean that if I cannot manifest it out of one of my innumerable layers of being, by the mechanistic machinations -God! what a term. Let’s try again. Yes, this is Me, your Higher Self writing this here, Tom.
Everything and every thing exists. There is nothing that does not exist
I mean that if what comes into existence in your world -and, indeed, in any world- cannot be created, manifested, by the creative thinking of one of my more advanced creations, then it does not exist.
But here is a divine revelation. Everything exists. There is nothing which does not exist. This is a concept which is beyond the wildest of human imaginings. Nothing exists! That means that Everything Is. What is Everything? It means
Every thing. There is no concept, no idea, no anything -words are failing us here, Tom, which cannot not exist.
This means that you, and Humanity, and all of my other creations can go on forever. Are forever. That nothing ever is not.
The Collective Mind knows no barriers
To get back to something you mentioned in your introductory passage and to which I am not in total agreement here. In other words, Tom, you, ‘got it wrong.’
There is no Collective Unconscious limited only to human minds- and of human minds. This Collective Unconscious you mention knows no barriers. You might say that a particular ‘segment’- not a good word- ‘area’- also not a good word- has a preponderance of human thought, word, and deed recorded within it. But it never has only human thought within it. That would be impossible, because the ‘Spheres of Influence’ cross no boundaries Because there are no boundaries.
It is a matter of perception conditioned by what you expect to see
It is a bit like that light spectrum you envisaged. A ray of light is cut into its various segments: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet, by a prism. There is really no separation except as seen by the Observer. It is a matter perception, conditioned by what you expect to see.
There never was a time when you could not see beyond that which you have conditioned yourself only to see. The illusion is manifest because you have, as a species, agreed in principle to seeing it, and nothing beyond it.
Do you think that poetry comes from something which you are not?
Poetry comes down from higher levels, but these levels are also of yourself.
Everything is of yourself. For you are Me.
Let me explain a little bit about how all of this works.
What is matter to some is energy to others
I have created endless vistas, panoramas, ‘planes of existence’ all of which interlock or interweave with the planes below and above it. This is what you term the ‘electromagnetic spectrum.’ Energy. Matter. What is matter to some is energy to others. What is energy to some is matter to others. Oh, and yes, Tom, you are right, the Electromagnetic Spectrum, complex beyond your wildest imaginings as it is, is only one of My Concepts. But to return.
Every ‘plane of existence’ in the electromagnetic spectrum, or as you put it, the ‘Depth Frequency’ flows gently into the next. With human beings there are ‘ranges of consciousness’ agreed to by the Collective Human Psyche which is Humanity, within which you all -or the great majority of you- experience your world. You see within certain parameters. You hear within certain parameters. Your senses of smell and taste and touch and yes, even your intuitive faculties, are ranged within these parameters. As humans this is what you are.
"In My Father's house are many levels of manifestation
When you pass into your next phases of existence at death you move into another largely agreed upon set of parameters. In the next world, that which you might label heaven or heavens, the place Jesus Christ said ‘In my Father’s House are many mansions,’ you simply go to levels where you have a wider set of parameters from which to choose your reality.
‘Choose’ is the key word, Tom. For in the choosing you manifest that reality which you choose for your self.
You have already been informed that you can manifest your reality consciously or unconsciously. In the majority of instances you and your fellows upon earth manifest unconsciously those feelings and thoughts which are to have such an influence over you. In the planes of existence you know as the ‘heavens’ you are given more insight, because the flesh which once bound you in with its ideas has been dropped, and you are now able to see ‘face to face’ just a little bit better.
The light gets brighter forever
Do not think that when a human being becomes enlightened, becomes a sage, that he or she has reached the end of the road in spiritual development or enlightenment. That is just an imagining of those who have not attained to what you term ‘enlightenment.’ The light gets brighter forever. Yes, for ever, Tom.
So what has this to do with your book?
It means that you can change your thinking deliberately, and with discrimination, to receive via this method of communication anything that you wish to. There is nothing closed to you. Nothing.
The Collective Unconscious is being forever supplemented by the thought of higher beings
But I place this proviso on it. (Your word, Tom) The limitation is this: You can only draw into your automatic writings those items which have been prepared for you by your own interests, yearnings, desires. Concepts which you might not seem to have thought about at the conscious level might suddenly manifest into consciousness and you assume they’ve come from ‘out of the blue.’ They haven’t. They have come from your subconscious. They have come from your subconsciousness and from the ‘totality of human thought,’ which is continually supplemented from the thought of ‘higher-level human beings,’ which is continually supplemented by the thought of even ‘higher creations,’ ad infinitum.

The prerequisite to learning is desire
Your advancement is swift, Tom. Those of you who take to the learning of the truth about what you are will also find it so. But the prerequisite is desire. You must want it. You must seek it. Seek and you shall find. You have my word on it. God’s word.
Your readers must know in their hearts that this is what they want to achieve. They cannot approach an undertaking such as this with any motive lesser than seeking to know the truth within them. Should they do so, they will achieve results. But these will not be optimum results. They will be lesser, and therefore less worthy of who they, the seeker, really is.
That much said, there are many ways of looking at this business of Automatic Writing.
There are many paths to Me
There is nothing stopping the tyro speaker from ‘proving’ or endeavouring to prove this phenomenon's authenticity. They most believe that they are dealing with Truth. So if they are of a scientific bent, take the scientific approach. If they are of ‘faith,’ then let them apply this method through ‘trust.’ It matters not. There is a place for all.
Likewise, there are many methods, many paths to me. Automatic Writing might gain the practitioner a lot of theoretical knowledge and understanding of concepts at present beyond their ken. It will not bring them to God. This can only come by earnest desire to be what you are: Unconditional Love.
What it can do though, Tom, is inspire that practitioner to take other steps, and other methods. Putting all of this together they will find what they are. Self realization, once tasted, is never forgotten and is carried forward. So, with that, I shall close this chapter.
