Excerpts from a Teaching Seance by The Camp Fire

Concerns About Earth

July 5, 1988

SANDY: How is mother earth coming along?

SPIRIT: Mother Earth is doing quite well in some areas, and in other areas she needs prayers. She needs love and she needs guidance. If the material beings of your plane would band yourself together, and daily send a thought of love to the planet you call Earth, she could become healed.

Do we have another question?

CANDY: How is the ozone situation?

SPIRIT: The ozone situation is not as bad as the scientists of your planet would have you to believe. It is not good by any means. By and through the work of other circles, or other organizations concerned with ecology, the ozone layer is beginning to heal.

LARRY: Should we be overly concerned about the drought and . . .

SPIRIT: No, not really, because well, you know, the drought that is happening in America is a Metaphysical teaching tool. Many children that incarnate into the material planes, the children that started incarnation about 65 to 1970, these souls are of Lumeria.

Many of these souls carry with them the vibration of agriculture, they are farmers. As they mature within the material plane, moving toward adulthood, and become more aware of the problems of their environment, they are naturally being drawn back to their innate interest in agriculture. As they tap into this innate knowledge of their souls, they are going to come up with some pretty unique ideas on how to grow your food, things of that nature, in a more effective way. You have already seen evidence of this type of advanced technology in agriculture at the Epcot Center at Disney World. This is reminiscent of the hanging gardens of Babylon.

As far as the drought is concerned, well that always has been a world problem, there has always been a drought somewhere on the earth plane, but it always rights itself, it takes care of itself some way or other. Faith in God, through prayer, things of that nature. The drought that is going on right now in your country is not going to be particularity bad, it is hurting the farmers a lot, but we don't see Americans starving to death because of it.

Of course your water supply is a recycling process, it evaporates into the atmosphere, and reenters through rain etc. But with the air pollution problems you are creating acid rain, which in turn is devastating your forests and fertile growth areas, so you have created a self-perpetuating cycle that does not help your planet rejuvenate itself through its usual methods.

The things that men do alters the ecology. This forces your ecology to alter itself to help itself. If you're not careful mother earth may have to give up producing her offspring so she can right her ecological system. Bear in mind that her offspring is man.

LARRY: We have another serious problem with pollution and the dumping of garbage and hazardous material.

SPIRIT: There are always the ecologists, and they are always going to fight for those situations to be righted. There are always people that are going to break those laws, but until the people learn that they have to be responsible, it's not going to get much better.

For eons of time, water pollution has been a major problem anyway. Man, as a race, tend to think if it is moving its going to take care of itself, it will flush itself out. Of course, over many centuries of time men have learned differently, or you think that they have learned differently, but they haven't at all.

Your garbage is much more sophisticated today than it has been in times past, so we can't really speculate how you are going to clean that mess up. We really can't begin to speculate. The first step, is to stop doing it, of course, that is what the ecologists keep saying, and the offenders don't stop doing it. So we can't really speculate too much about that.

LYNN: Why is it that other countries don't seem to have a pollution problem as much as we do?

SPIRIT: Oh, of course they do, in some places in the world pollution worse than here.

LARRY: Have there been any resent examples where a group of people on the earth plane have collectively brought about some sort of world wide change, through the power of positive thinking or Spiritual thought or. . .

SPIRIT: There are many changes that have happened within the material planes as the result of collective groups sending out their energy, their positive energy. We really can't sight a single incident, because they happen on a small level. Realize that there is change, every change makes vibration, and that change comes together it meets a level. All like vibration coalesces and comes together. Very subtly the groups that are sending out the positive prayers, that vibration that is coming together is beginning to permeate the beings of the world. So, yes there has been some very real change, but very subtle, very gentle.

Many of your ecologists have done an awful lot of work to make the populace at large aware of just important nature is, how beautiful nature is also. How important it is to your survival, because if nature dies, if nature truly dies, then the world dies, you see. So they have done a lot, in very subtle ways, they have made much noise, and the progress has been very slow. They are beginning to get key people in key places to pay attention to them, and begin to realize just how important nature is, and that you really must take care of it. So yes things are happening, things are very really happening.

LARRY: If one is to continue their thought of free will, and to expand that, they can do essentially whatever they want, then why should one be concerned about the nature or the ecology.

SPIRIT: Because, if that dies, you die. Then you have no place to live, at least on this plane anyway.

LARRY: Would not your free will prevent that then from happening?

SPIRIT: No, not you as an individual, as one. That would take a lot of work, you have to agree in accord to effect any change, to preserve.

And you cannot change things simply because you will it, you have to use your power of dominion to make those types of changes.

LARRY: Thank-you Spirit.

Do we have a question?

LYNN: Is there any way that we can help the acid rain problem here in the states?

SPIRIT: The acid rain problem is a terrible problem. It can be helped through prayer.

LARRY: I have another question. Much has been written and said about the so-called shift of the axis toward the latter part of this century.

SPIRIT: Well, it's already happening, but its happening slowly. With the shift of the axis . . . everybody thinks that its going to happen quickly without warning, and zap it will be done. That is not exactly what is happening. It is happening slowly and your coast lines are naturally going to change. Your weather patterns have already changed. You have been aware of this for a good ten years.

LARRY: Should we be concerned?

SPIRIT: it's a natural propensity, it happens every 2,500 years or so. It's just that some axis shifts have been more violent than others. You have heard reports about the ocean is going suddenly flood out cities and things like that. Well that might happen, but it's not going to happen to the proportion that it has been written about. You are going to loose a lot of your coastal areas. You're going to find that you will have new coastal areas. But, that is already happening. Anybody that owns beach front property is loosing beach front property. Its happening, oh we don't know the precise rate. They are loosing almost a couple of feet almost every year.

LARRY: Would it be wise not to live near the coast? Specifically in California?

SPIRIT: No, are you worried about yourself being out there?

LARRY: No, I'm not worried.

SPIRIT: Well you know crazy things have been happening because of the shift, volcanos erupting, earthquakes and things like that, but no, we don't see any real danger, because you have a higher order, and your higher order is going to put you where you are supposed to be. You may find some unusual storms coming up out to sea. Things that are going to crop up suddenly that weren't on the weather pattern. But, we don't see any big problem.

LARRY: Thank-you.

LYNN: Could you tell me what will happen to the U.S. with the problem with radiation that we have?

SPIRIT: This is very difficult to speculate, because science plays some dangerous games. They do not particularly balance out formulas. If they continue their work, they would find that they have the means to neutralize what they are creating, but they do not take the math far enough. So, that is very hard to speculate, it depends on the minds that play the games.

Of course, many scientific discoveries are used for the wrong purposes, which adds to the devastation.

LYNN: The same as in politics.

SPIRIT: It's all political, dear, it's all political. Look at the star wars race. If the politicians put as much energy to world peace as they do to the star wars race and the need to defend themselves, you could do much move to advance your technology and save your planet from destruction. The destruction that does happen, takes place inside each country, not from outside influences of other nations. The destruction takes place because each country wants to defend themselves from the influences of other nations.

That hasn't worked either. You find the influence of the western culture spreading through Europe and the Eastern cultures. This only proves that people are people, there is no difference. They all want the same things, a quality of life that expresses an openness and honesty. If political arenas focused on that equality, then there would be little need for your weaponry.

LYNN: Can you tell me how long the U.S. will exist as we know it? If it will get better or worse?

SPIRIT: It changes every day, you just are not particularly aware of the changes because you live your daily lives. You take it one day at a time. If you really watched the world events, and keep up with current events, and stick your nose in around the White House, and into congress, you would find out that the America that you think, and know and love changes daily.
Progression Of Man Of The Material Planes

Excerpt From Class Transcript

Date: February 22, 1990

KEN: I am concerned about the over population of the Earth.

SPIRIT: The earth is not overpopulated.

KEN: Well the population level, isn't it kind of . . . Dominating . . . destroying the animal life forms and vegetation . . . beyond a certain point . . . that is not acceptable?

(Spirit was shaking my head no all the time he was talking.)

SPIRIT: Not really. You have the same amount of people now in your earth plane that you have always had. The people are using the land incorrectly. It's not the numbers of the people, it's the use of the land that is being abused.

You know, evolution has to happen, and technology has to happen, but you people use your technology in the wrong direction, in wrong ways. You have allowed technology to override the respect of the land.

BOB: If I hear you correctly, we have as many people on the earth as physical beings as we have always had?

SPIRIT: That is correct.

BOB: That wouldn't go with what I have read and heard about the number of people. The so-called body count of the people in this country and other countries, and they estimate so many people in the world at a certain point in history and they seem to differ a grate deal.

SPIRIT: Well of course that information differs. Who took their census? What about all the Africans, and all the Australians, and all the people in Brazil who live in the outback in the so-called uncivilized world. Who counted them?

BOB: Beats me.

SPIRIT: So there has always been the same amount of people. Give or take a couple of hundred thousand.

BOB: There are three and a half billion people on earth today and there were that many 5,000 years ago?

SPIRIT: That is correct. Exactly right.

BOB: I don't know if I want to believe that.

SPIRIT: You can believe or disbelieve that information, as you wish, that does not change the facts. What do you think the Vikings found when they came to America?

BOB: Probably Indians I suppose.

SPIRIT: And do you know how many Indians lived in this country?

BOB: No, I don't.

SPIRIT: There where well over 650 million, that man knows about, there are many more that were never counted.

BOB: I find that very difficult to believe that we are the same number of people on the earth. We live longer, at least that is what they say.

SPIRIT: Hum, check history. That is poppycock too.

BOB: They haven't had the longevity in the past.

SPIRIT: Oh, baloney.

BOB: What?

SPIRIT: How old do you thin that George Washington was when he died?

BOB: I really don't know.

KEN: He was 68 or something like that.

SPIRIT: He was close to 90.

COLLEEN: I got 90.

SPIRIT: And Benjamin Franklin.

BOB: Oh, I didn't say the people didn't live long . . .

SPIRIT: Check your history. You will be amazed at the longevity of past man. Beyond that, much of your history is not accurate. You can't believe everything you read, it's not all accurate.

BOB: I'm sure that is not all . . .

SPIRIT: We are not trying to argue with you, we are trying to explain that you only have your material resources to go by, and your material resources are not always accurate. They are just not always accurate.

As material man of the earth plane evolve, you tend to keep more records. You get to be better record keepers, that is part of the evolution, but to what end are you keeping all those records. Do you understand what we are trying to tell you?

BOB: Yes.

SPIRIT: And in the process of mind bogging nothings of keeping your records, you have lost respect for your earth, you have lost respect for your ecology, for so much that is so important. So now you think that know how many people live in the earth. Big deal, so you think you know something that you never knew before. But, from an ecology stand point, how well do you live? What is more important taking care of the Earth, or knowing how many people live here?

BOB: Taking care of the Earth.

SPIRIT: That is what we think. That is the way . . .

BOB: That doesn't mean that knowing the numbers is wrong either.

SPIRIT: No, it doesn't mean that, it doesn't mean that at all. What we exactly mean to say is; what difference does it make, or what good does it do to try to know how many people that live in the Earth, something that you have never had an accurate accounting of anyway, and probably never will, when you are all abusing your planet?

BOB: Well!

SPIRIT: Can't answer that, can you?

BOB: Well, I'm thinking of, the different thought process are going on here . . .

SPIRIT: There is nothing to think about, because it will be if you abuse your planet enough, nobody will be able to live here.

BOB: I think it would be less harmful to the earth with one billion people living in it than four or five billion if they were all doing the same kinds of things.

SPIRIT: Oh, no, no, no, you don't understand. The earth itself is a life giver, she is a mother, She is your mother, you are made of the dust of her ground. She nurtures her people, she nurtures everything, she nurtures you, and . . .

BOB: Can we not destroy her if we wanted to?

SPIRIT: Can you not destroy her? You are destroying her! She cries always, please take care of me, I'm dying. Do you listen?
Do you hear her cry?

BOB: Not in one way, but I do in another, I agree with ecology, and not destroying what we have got here. It is what is going to keep us alive.

SPIRIT: You still do not understand. She is your life, she is what gives you life, not what keeps you alive. You do not live on her, you live within her, nestled within her womb, drawing your life energy and support from her. Without her, you cannot exist.

KEN: Is she going to take steps to rectify the situation?

SPIRIT: Is mother Earth going to take steps . . . She tries always, but there are too many abuses and there are not enough people who listen.

JO-ANN: It is up to us to teach our children, it is up to us to change. We are the only ones who can save mother earth.

KEN: I was thinking more in terms of drastic earth changes.

SPIRIT: There are drastic earth changes going on, those are natural propensities, the shift of the axis and things of that nature. It is not a natural propensity to destroy your rain forests, to create acid rain, smog and air pollution, what is natural about that? To throw sewerage into your water ways, what is natural about that? To clog up your oceans with plastics and all kinds of things, what is natural about that?

The shifting of the axis is what you think a dramatic change, but it is not at all. Your oceans act as preservatives of that land, of that land mass. Every time the earth changes you have new fresh clean land. You are polluting your oceans, so how new, and fresh and clean is that land going to be?

BOB: We haven't done a very good job.

SPIRIT: No, you haven't. We agree with you, that doesn't help the problem though. The time has come to be aware, and for everybody to do their part. That is a whole other lecture. We have time for another question.

BOB: Will we do it, will we take care of the earth, or will we destroy it?

SPIRIT: We cannot answer that, that is up to you.

September 28, 1990. It has been discovered that the census taken this year is inaccurate. Whole neighborhoods in key cities of the U.S. were never counted. Other communities counted as many as five times. Some neighborhoods every third household were counted, and at that they were counted twice. So perhaps we are not as good record keepers as Spirit tried to indicate.

Frequently Asked Questions

Jeannette Meek,
Spiritual Medium

Q. You mentioned that meditation is a multi-level process. What are the levels?

A. The first is to teach yourself to settle down and be still for a while. This can be accomplished many ways. You need a focus to do this. Reading a book is an example of settling down and being still.

The next level is to understand the psychic connection between material mind and the psychic self.

The next level is devoted to stilling yourself and accomplishing complete silence mentally, physically and emotionally.

The next level is to understand the Unfoldment of the Spiritual self.

Q. What is the psychic connection between material mind and the psychic self?

A. The connection to the material mind and the psychic self is the Etheric body.

Q. What is the Etheric body?

A. Some disciplines call the Etheric body the soul.

Q. What is the Unfoldment of the Spiritual self?

A. The Unfoldment of the Spiritual self is a process of "Spiritual Unfoldment." Spiritual Unfoldment is a process that allows you to peel back the material conditioning you receive as a Spiritual being incarnated in material form of expression. It is much like the blooming of a flower, the petals folding open to reveal the center of the flower. It is a process of cultivation of our Spiritual nature in a truer sense of expression.

Q. What do you mean, "a process of cultivation of our Spiritual nature in a truer sense of expression?"

A. As we mature during our incarnation of the material plane, we have a tendency to loose site of the fact that we are Spiritual beings first and foremost. We allow our physicalness to take precedence over our spirituality. This is not an intended result of incarnation. It’s a natural propensity of "taking care of business" during incarnation. At some point of our material life we become aware that we seem to be missing something, something that is nameless, but very desirable. That desirable thing that we are missing is our connection and remembrance that we are Spiritual beings incarnated in flesh form, not a material body with a Spirit contained somewhere deep inside of us waiting to be activated.

Q. We make this connection to the inner self through meditation?

A. That is correct. Meditation is the key that unlocks the connection to the Etheric body. The Etheric body is the psychic body of man. The Etheric body is the connecting bridge between the material body of man and the Spiritual body of man. Meditation is finding the pathway to the inner Spiritual self.

Q. What is our connection to our Spiritual self?

A. The material connector to the Spiritual self is our psychic sensory system of function. The psychic body of function is our sixth sense and it is the completion of our material manifestation. The body that controls the psychic sense system is the Etheric body. The Etheric body is also the connector to the Spiritual body. You could consider the Etheric body as the bridge between the material body and the Spiritual body. Through ignorance man has tried to discredit his own intuition. Some religions call psychic function evil and work of the devil. Others just call it silly superstition. However the sixth sense of man has never stopped its functions and leads to the "Spiritual functions," the seventh level of our capabilities.

Q. Where does study of this type start?

A. This type of study has already started as it is an inherent quality of man to search for his Spiritual connection. This is the reason this type of Spiritual reading material is available, and the reason you are attracted to this type of information, so you are already on your Spiritual journey. So there really is no formal starting place, individually we all find our own starting place.

There are many types of study that have been developed into programs or pathways of study, so there is not one specific place to begin, it’s all a matter of choice. I believe the first step to this type of study is to recognize you are already involved in a Spiritual Unfoldment program in a natural course of living. Reflect upon the type of reading you already do, and the type of reading material that attracts you. Become aware of where, when and how you study this type of material. Where, when and how you study are as important if not more so than what you study. As you attune yourself to this information about what you are naturally attracted to teaches you that all life is a great lesson learned in increments of phases of life. You also become aware of your spirituality more fully. Once that information is in place addressing where, when and how, I would have to say becoming comfortable with psychic abilities would be then next phase. There are many misconceptions about psychic abilities, what they are, how they function and how they are used, so much so, people often have a distorted concept of the function. Before we can become comfortable with our psychic abilities, I believe we need to have a better understanding of the skills, and a general idea of how these misconceptions become prevalent on the material plane. Learning facts of truth about psychic abilities automatically dispels the myths created about the function. Because there are a vast number of misconceptions about psychic abilities, Spirit channeled a series of booklets many years ago addressing these misconceptions. Amazingly after thirty years of teaching Spiritual Unfoldment I still find these misconceptions to be prevalent.

For these reasons I begin every new class with the series that Spirit channeled entitled "to the skeptics the psychically misinformed." The misunderstood principles and concepts outlined in that series are still prevalent in mans mind today.

Q. What type of misconceptions about *psychic ability do you mean?
A. Many people believe that psychic ability is a skill that only some people have, not all people. Others believe if you use your psychic ability too often, it will dry up and disappear. My personal favorite is whistles, bells and gongs will sound when somebody has a psychic revelation.

Q. These things are not true?

A. No, they are not. Psychic abilities are the sixth sense of man completing our physical manifestation, so psychic ability is a natural function. Psychic ability is not a function that works sometimes in a hit or miss process. It always works. Because it is a natural function, most people are not aware of how they use it, and everybody does use it consciously or unconsciously. Because most are not aware of natural psychic ability in action, these myths are easily created, and they are somewhat easily believed. After all, if you’re not truly cognizant of a function, how can you know your using it, or misusing it. For example, do you have to check with your sense of smell to know its functioning? It just works unconsciously. Suppose somebody or a group of people told you your sense of smell was not working correctly unless you heard a buzzing sound in your ears every time your sense of smell functioned. You might think that information is nuts, but in a natural course of events related to the information you would begin paying more attention to the ability of smell. And amazingly there would be many people who would suddenly begin to report that this information is true. They would report that it is a subtle sound, if you weren’t listening for it you would not hear it.

Q. So study of psychic ability is part of a Spiritual Unfoldment program?

A. Yes, it is important you recognize and understand psychic ability is a natural function all people use, and enjoy. It’s part of whom we are and how we function. Understanding and accepting the system of psychic sensory perception is the first step to reconnecting our material self to our Spirit self. Meditation is the key to the connection of our material and Spiritual selves, and the connection happens through the intuitive psychic sense system. When you have basic knowledge of the psychic sense system and how it functions will help you to meditate more easily. You have an understanding of the sensations you experience during your meditation period and the understanding allows you to relax more fully and go with the flow of the meditation period.

Q. How does the study of psychic abilities help us to meditate?

A. Meditation is a process of connecting to our Spiritual self. To connect to our Spiritual self we must be able to relax totally, mentally, physically, and emotionally. To be able to relax so completely without falling asleep we must have a basic understanding of our material self and how the material mind functions. Between the material functions of mind and the Spiritual functions of mind are the psychic functions of mind. The psychic function of mind is the connector between the material and Spiritual mind. So to connect to the Spirit mind we need to open up what may seem to be closed pathways. The seemly closed pathways are our reaction to our psychic abilities. Because we become desensitized to the function of psychic abilities, when we relax and feel them in action we interpret that sensation as strange, when in fact it’s a natural function. When we feel something we interpret as strange happening to us we automatically switch into an alert protective mode of safety. This safety mode is a stimulation of the physical mind sending alert messages to the physical body causing a rush of adrenalin and we are automatically taken from a state of complete relaxation to a state of combat defense readiness. Study of psychic ability helps to understand the sensations we experience during our meditation period allowing us to enjoy the sensations and reintroduce the sensation into or conscious mind. The acceptance of the "new" sensations allows us to unblock the pathways to the higher mind functions. Unblocking the psychic pathways through understanding what the blocks are or were is the key to helping us to relax and go with the flow of meditation gaining the highest and best from our meditation period.

Q. You mentioned the seventh level of ourselves, what is that?

A. The seventh level of our manifestation is our Spiritual self, the creative force within us that manifests our reality of life. The Spiritual self is the aspect of self that is bound to and controlled by universal law sometimes referred to as Spiritual law. Universal Spiritual law works in our lives constantly to bring into fruition our conscious state of reality. Some call the Spiritual self soul, others call it the higher-self.

Q. So the psychic body of man is the connector between the physical self and the Spiritual self?

A. Yes that is correct. Once material man can understand the connecting body of psychic function allows the connection to be made to the inner Spiritual self by bridging the "gap" between the two bodies of function. Some schools of thought call the Spiritual self the higher self.
