EVP: Part Deux

The right circumstances would be a house that is reputed to be haunted. It's better to not have to go looking for spirits. To know that they are already there helps a great deal. To haverepparttar right equipment would help. Make sure you have enough batteries, tapes forrepparttar 139969 recorder or a microphone is necessary. If it's a digital recorder, knowing how to use it is a must. Although this sounds like a no-brainer....you would be surprised atrepparttar 139970 number of people buying these recorders and then not knowing how to use them or not being able to understandrepparttar 139971 directions.

Another suggestion would be to meditate. Meditation helps to clearrepparttar 139972 mind while opening uprepparttar 139973 mind torepparttar 139974 elements atrepparttar 139975 same time. I must confess that I don't think I meditate well but I have been told again and again that as long as I keep trying, I am onrepparttar 139976 right track. It is important that you continue to try.

Find a spot that you think will work and get comfortable. You can begin by asking simple answer questions. Don't expect long, drawn out explanations. You will be lucky to get simple answers. Just keep asking questions that are respectful, show courtesy and are informative. Don't ask questions that are too difficult to answer. Remember, these are people and may only be able to answer using one word.

These simple rules will enable just about any one to obtain EVP. The point to remember is to keep trying. Eventually you will succeed. The dead do want to talk with you. You need to be patient to receiverepparttar 139977 message. Also, too,repparttar 139978 dead may come to you in dreams with messages...but that's another article.

Good luck!!

There are many flaws inrepparttar argument or assertions aboutrepparttar 139939 lost continent or continental polar shift and ecologic or cataclysmic events. We shall deal with them later but at this juncture it is worth noting thatrepparttar 139940 Mungo Man and other evidences of great antiquity to support Churchward's theories of Mu have been proven archaeologically. He does an excellent job of decipheringrepparttar 139941 totem poles ofrepparttar 139942 Haida nation in his book 'The Lost Continent of Mu and I have found a stele at Chichen Itza that supports his Greek to Cara-Maya story ofrepparttar 139943 destruction of Mu. There are many statues and artistic works inrepparttar 139944 area to support it as well as other esoteric symbols onrepparttar 139945 stele. My efforts almost landed me in a Mexican prison with no 'rights' as a Canadian or American resident. The author of this particular piece is right to focus on Hawaii and he might be amazed to know thatrepparttar 139946 highest 'northern' (Hyperborean according to ancient Greek scholars) shamans, orrepparttar 139947 Druids have their most adept members in Hawaii. This was from a credible source, I trust. So just because he tried to make sense ofrepparttar 139948 facts and made many mistakes does not diminish my respect forrepparttar 139949 passion and courage of Col. James Churchward. He tried to give mankind a truer picture of his roots and cultural footing. We must try to establish what relevance our past immoral behavior has for people ofrepparttar 139950 future.

"The inspirational and creative level ofrepparttar 139951 mind which operated at a higher state of consciousness was recognized asrepparttar 139952 province of a 'higher spirit' - a 'High' Self - which was immortal and which motivatedrepparttar 139953 individual towards spiritual aspirations and noble deeds. It was considered to guide and inspirerepparttar 139954 'human' self, for it had divine-like qualities...

Among shamans of northern traditions, however, was an oral teaching {The Bardic Tradition ofrepparttar 139955 Bairds by which my genes do instruct.} that recognized a fourth intelligence - an instinctive and automative one which controlled and maintainedrepparttar 139956 physical body, and which was responsible for its protection and survival. This intelligence operated at deep levels of unconscious activity {Partially, perhaps,repparttar 139957 'history book' of our genes according to Dr. Collinsrepparttar 139958 head ofrepparttar 139959 Human Genome Project.} and was likened to an animal spirit because its action seemed largely instinctive. Since it normally disappeared whenrepparttar 139960 human being suffered death it was not regarded inrepparttar 139961 same way asrepparttar 139962 other 'spirits'...

Each technique has been effective within its own culture, but has derived from an earlier universal system of prehistory. By recognizingrepparttar 139963 parallels and integratingrepparttar 139964 principles into a single harmonic system inrepparttar 139965 spirit ofrepparttar 139966 travelling shamans. I hope not only to get closer torepparttar 139967 original system, but also to provide modern people with a clear path torepparttar 139968 Cosmos ofrepparttar 139969 shaman, thus securing a firm foundation from which Inner Space may be explored andrepparttar 139970 benefits shared.

Travelling shamans who went beyondrepparttar 139971 limitations of their own tribal customs recognized that no single group possessed all Truth {Thusrepparttar 139972 Kelts were into 'Brotherhood' rather than racial purity or ethnic ascendancy.}, and so journeyed from tribe to tribe and place to place seeking knowledge, gaining new insights, weaving what they learned into what they already knew, and imparting wisdom." (5)

It is good to see that there are many people in every age who see that Inner Space and travel offer much insight. Despiterepparttar 139973 prevailing attitudes ofrepparttar 139974 last 5,000 years that have sought to homogenize, enslave or create class hierarchies, and manage us for their benefit,repparttar 139975 shaman’s road has borne wondrous fruit. In recent timesrepparttar 139976 quantum (once derided as 'atom-mysticists') physicists and people like Lovelock, Campbell, Chopra etc., are our adept cells. The past hadrepparttar 139977 De Danaan or their 'brothers' ofrepparttar 139978 race of hominids we have just found near Lake Mungo.

“The Pre Ragnarok Viking Gods.

This section was inspired by Erik Linklater andrepparttar 139979 legends ofrepparttar 139980 Orkney Islands, guided by Thor, and tested in meditation. It contains no material of German origin. Written 1989.

The Sagas were written by shamans and other leaders to definerepparttar 139981 social, spiritual and psychic objectives ofrepparttar 139982 race. Where an image produced inspires Man and is acceptable to spirit guides, then those spirit guides will userepparttar 139983 image as an interface and bring it to life, thus creating an archetypal God. The fossilised Gods of monotheism onrepparttar 139984 other hand are just political, mental or psychic control mechanisms stuck in time until dismantled. Spirit guides do not have a brain and need you to do their thinking and meditation for them. If one servesrepparttar 139985 Gods, then they will serve you. There are no free lunches. (Note written February 2000.)

When man can generate enough energy and responsibility for his actions, he will no longer need God or Gods. Until such time he needs a first rate energy source. The Viking Gods provide a first class source of energy, suitable for propelling man through enlightenment (as in Zen). They will help conquerrepparttar 139986 Zodiac andrepparttar 139987 Akashic Elements (Fire, Air, Water and Earth), and other Frost Giants of emotion.” (6)

These wise people were often called 'messengers' amongrepparttar 139988 natives of North America and 'gods' among lesser ethnic groups who sought to create Olympians or other gods they could interpret for. Whenrepparttar 139989 last Mungo Man went to whatever planet or end they sought, we do not know. Was it whenrepparttar 139990 genetic viruses took allrepparttar 139991 large animals like Mammoths and saber cats? No, because there were still mammoths on Wrangle Island 4,000 years ago. I don't thinkrepparttar 139992 more advanced humans ofrepparttar 139993 Mungo strain would have allowed US to do what we've done to our native 'brothers' and our own mothers and sisters. Perhaps I'm a dreamer or an idealist, maybe I'm like Heraclitus of Ephesus who shunned his position and power forrepparttar 139994 pursuit of some ludicrous and intangible 'knowledge'. Maybe I'm an extreme individual and 'neurotic' or just a naive cultist of some kind. I've been called many different names or labeled a witch, agnostic, atheist, alchemist, and other things I probably am, as well. It would be difficult to put me alongside many others in a pursuit because I value and respect so many different people and approaches. Krishnamurti (sans Theosophists), Yogananda before he reached out to normative religion and even asrepparttar 139995 ecumenicist, Jung andrepparttar 139996 philosophers of 'cell diffusion' like Campbell. I hope you put me alongside these people or simply with those who wore my name so proudly in pre-Christian times - BAIRDS! These are my ancestral 'allies' or 'guides'.
