There are a lot of people out there who claim to be channels of various types of galactic beings, such as Dolores Cannon and many others. Now I am not claiming that ability, at least not that this time! But a number of blog posts and websites lately have stimulated me into thinking about what it is that I feel to be true about galactic consciousness.
A common error that I notice people make when thinking about what life might be “out there” is they think that life will take a similar, material form to ours – that they will be creatures of flesh and blood like us. Thank you, Hollywood! Well, for me, nothing could be further from the truth.
This vibration that we currently reside in, what we call our ordinary earth-life existence, is the “lowest” realm of our entire galaxy! It is the densest form of incarnation you can find, anywhere in the multi-layered dimensions of the Milky Way. If the Earth (at least in the vibration that most of us are currently living within) was a piece of real estate in the Galactic Neighbourhood, it would be known as the crummiest and most dangerous part of the city! You wouldn’t want to go there at night, because it’s often a little scary and not terribly welcoming!! However I want to stress that this used to be more true at certain times of history than it is now – during the medieval times was probably when the Earth level was at its most brutal. I do feel things are improving considerably now as the hearts and minds of people improve, and as we get closer to the ecstatic galactic alignment of December 2012. But still, there’s no denying that Earth is something of a “backwater” – we sit right out on the far point of one of the spiral arms of the Galaxy, very far from the bright centre, the “hub” where all the brightest souls reside and where all the real “action” is!
And this gets to the point of my post: to me, “soul”, “spirit” and “consciousness” are much better terms for the life “out there” than “alien”. Sure, there may be some spirit entities who may take on an “alien” form, or resemble what we know as gray aliens. This may be because they are from a certain star system, where the inhabitants have assumed that form as part of their long process of development.
I think that it’s an attitude of fearfulness that leads people to believe in the possibility of aliens landing, or some such. To me, angels, aliens, gods and goddesses, are all part of the marvellous diversity of Life that exists on what we often refer to as the “other side”.
“Our birth is but a sleep and a forgetting” – those are the words of my favourite idealist poet, William Wordsworth. This life, that is the process of getting incarnated into this realm, is a very difficult one indeed, and the birth process most often leaves a kind of trauma on the incoming soul that often leads to amnesia or forgetting of the previous, blissful realm of existence – what the Hindu tradition refers to as devachan. We forget that we have an infinite, blissful inheritance just waiting for us on our return to our true “home”, and that this stay on earth is but a temporary one where we practice at being loving, and at being creative. We also forget that we have a “support team” of beautiful souls right along side (sometimes more in the background) at all times, who look on us with eyes of love and who are supporting us at every turn. Then when we do make the return journey home, our support team are right there ready to welcome us and ease the transition back, which is also often confusing and scary. But we do have help!
So in summary I think we have nothing to fear from any consciousness “out there”. The dominant part of the universe is love – the love which brought the universe of manifestation into being in the first place. We are here to practice being love; not to be constantly looking for it outside ourselves, but to feel it within, to love ourselves and the divine spark that God has given us as an inheritance. It is only on earth where love gets (temporarily) forgotten as part of the earth-amnesia. But love IS the only reality!
