From: The Cosmic Detective
I address this matter extensively from different perspectives and points of view in “SECTION I”, chapter “9. NAMES, IDENTITIES, AND FINDING THE SOUL VIBRATION” of my book COSMIC CONSCIOUSNESS: Do-It-Yourself Manual - in pdf format with numerous links to numerous sources. The sections, chapters, and so on, are linked to in “Bookmarks” for easy access.
Here are a couple of related excerpts:
[Excerpt from page 168]
In this section, I will further discuss the idea of who I think I am and why, so the reader can have a clearer sense of where I’m coming from. I will look at my human created labels, as well as my Soul identity. I will also describe the foundation and flow of my life process.
What is in a name? Naming of individuals at birth by parents is a part of the human birthing customs, for the purpose of distinguishing one from another. At best, it is a matter of reflecting a vibration, an essential resonance with the Soul and spirit of the human form. But naming can also be a process of identity development, with periods of confusion and change. Part of the confusion is that others usually name us, and our names reflect the expectations of the people naming us. Additionally, there are circumstances of birth, which can impact connection to the essence. The way we connect to the essence varies, but more and more, it grows out of direct experience and attunement to the invisible dimension Source, of which each of us is essentially an aspect.
According to some traditions, a person is required to name him or her self at a certain point, after a certain identity quest is completed. Additionally, names can change as a result of a shift in social status or a shift in awareness.
[Pages 21 – 25]
The essential message of this work is that the true identity of all humans is that of Soul entities. Fundamentally, we are aspects of our original Source Creator. This is the basis for terms like “back to the Source”, “back to Eden” and “Going to Heaven”. We, as these soul entities, are presently incarnated in human form as potential or realized sapient beings. We have the inherent potential for asking questions, finding answers, changing our way of thinking and modes of behavior. Awareness of this potential may come in various ways, such as in a revelation or an epiphany. It comes in different forms for different people: for examples, déjà vu, clairaudience, and clairvoyance, during the dream state, psychic readings, and astrological readings. The beginning of understanding is suddenly a moment of awakening, or gradual real-I-zation, that becomes a life commitment to an extensive process of seeking further understanding and knowledge geared toward activating potential.
The way we activate our potential in practical application is by setting intentions and making choices with conviction. With commitment and consistent practice, the result is a 24/7 visceral awareness of the connection to and relationship with Spirit world dimensions, and on to the One Source. This is cosmic conscious awareness of the transcendental Soul source – beyond names, the source of stars, planets, ‘us’ and everything else that exists within its infinite and constantly expanding realms of existence. Simply put, there is no “death”, the Soul is eternal, there is only the changing of forms or bodies. See, for example, the following from the FOREWORD of Ruth Montgomery’s (1913 – 2001) book, pg. 7-8: Strangers Among Us.
“Benjamin Franklin was a walk-in, and like all such advanced souls he brought in with him awareness. Because of this special quality, he perfectly understood the illusion of what we term “living,” and the reality of the greater life that we call “death.” His awareness is exemplified in the letter that he wrote to Miss Hubbard on the occasion of the death of his brother, John Franklin.
Philadelphia, 23d February 1756.
I CONDOLE with you. We have lost a most dear and valuable relation. But it is the will of God and nature that these mortal bodies be laid aside when the soul is to enter into real life. This is rather an embryo state, a preparation for living. A man is not completely born until he be dead. Why, then, should we grieve that a new child is born among the immortals, a new member added to their happy society.
We are spirits. That bodies should be lent us while they can afford us pleasure, assist us in acquiring knowledge, or in doing good to our fellow-creatures, is a kind and benevolent act of God. When they become unfit for these purposes and afford us pain instead of pleasure, instead of an aid become an encumbrance, and answer none of the intentions for which they were given, it is equally kind and benevolent that a way is provided by which we may get rid of them. Death is that way. We ourselves, in some cases, prudently choose a partial death. A mangled, painful limb, which cannot be restored, we willingly cut off. He who plucks out a tooth parts with it freely, since the pain goes with it; and he who quits the whole body parts at once with all pains and possibilities of pain and disease which it was liable to or capable of making him suffer.
Our friend and we were invited abroad on a party of pleasure which is to last forever. His chair was ready first and he is gone before us. We could not all conveniently start together, and why should you and I be grieved at this, since we all are soon to follow and know where to find him? Adieu, B. Franklin”
“Dr. Franklin, a scientist of international renown, also believed in reincarnation, of which he wrote: "When I see nothing annihilated (in the works of God) and not a drop of water wasted, I cannot suspect the annihilation of souls, or believe that He will suffer the daily waste of millions of minds ready made that now exist; and, put Himself to the continual trouble of making new ones. Thus finding myself to exist in the world, I believe I shall, in some shape or other, always exist: and with all the inconveniences human life is liable to, I shall not object to a new edition of mine, hoping, however, that the errata of the last may be corrected.”
As humans, we are a mixture of individual personality, temperament, and characteristics that evolve as a result of different lifetimes/incarnati ons of experiences, perceptions and interaction with others (karma). We also have the capacity for awareness of cosmic universal consciousness, the awareness of “being” an aspect of the transcendental Source Creator. According to the best scientific estimates available to us, the average human, including those who intellectually rank in the Mensa organization as geniuses—that is— those whose IQ (intelligence quotient) is in the top 2% of the population, only use at most 15% of our brain capacity. A person functioning on the cosmic consciousness level stretches the intellect—balanced and harmonized with intuitional knowing—beyond the limits and boundaries of three dimensional “reality” conscious awareness and perception, and uses more than 15%. This sets him or her apart from the general population into such categories as mystics, prophets, mediums, psychics, and other “spooky weirdo’s.” This extends to those who can materialize and dematerialize at will (Some Eastern mystics, Jesus, The Christ, and whoever or whatever else.).
The mind is invisible. The brain is a visible organ. We access the Great Mind, the source of all knowledge, sometimes referred to as the Source or the Akashic Records, by using our bio-computer, our organic brain, which is a transmitter and receiver, across the infinity of the “invisible” spiritual, ever-expanding consciousness dimensions. Recent scientific discoveries, made available through the use of the Hubble Telescope, have indicated that the universe is expanding at an accelerating rate, as opposed to what was previously believed—thought to be true— that the universe should be slowing down since the Big Bang. Using the Hermetic principal “As above, so below”, as the universe expands, so too can individual conscious awareness expand. This is the natural order of things.
Increasing levels of awareness is a process of individual mental functioning to reconnect and balance. It involves activating brain cells in certain inactive areas of the brain. It involves balancing the functioning of the left hemisphere of the brain, which governs logic and reasoning with ‘hard’ three dimensional data such as mathematical formulas, and the right hemisphere of the brain, which utilizes “mind’s eye” visualizations, to access the aesthetic realms, planes and dimensions, psychic abilities, intuition, instinctual and visceral knowing, artistic creativity and such, thereby raising the frequency and voltage of the brain’s power*. This calibration and attunement consciously expands perception, perspective, and knowledge, and results in increased levels of awareness, optimal health physically, mentally and spiritually—ultimate ly improved quality of ‘life’ overall.
*“Keep in mind the vibratory level of the mass consciousness. No inhabitant of planet Earth could survive a shift to 4th dimension at this time. No amount of meditating and listening to channeled entities has accomplished this feat. It must be a shift in self-perception and focus on the purpose of this incarnation in great numbers to accomplish this, as the flow now is downward in vibratory rate into disease and death. To halt this movement and change its direction will require a shift of major proportion. The normal vibratory rate of a human body has been determined to be between 62 and 68 MHz. *The brain functions optimally between 72 and 90 MHz. When the body vibration lowers to 58 MHz it can “catch a code”; at 57 MHz the flu; 55 MHz candida, 52 MHz Epstein Barr; 42 MHz cancer and at 25 MHz death begins. By considering the health problems of your friends and family, you can begin to get a true picture. Our interesting negative planners simply lower the MHz of someone they would like to eliminate through their recently devised methods [See my note below]. Within a short period of time, the body either develops a fatal disease or if lowered enough, death occurs and whatever disease already present is the excuse. Allopathic medicine (a misnomer), chemical prescriptions, lower the MHz of the body. Radiation from TC and computer screens lowers the MHz, and consuming processed and canned foods, which have 0 MHz to support the body, continue this process. Starvation is the lest subtle of the ways to lower the MHz and bring on the lowering of the mass consciousness before each dies, in that way these make their contribution to this descending cycle. The human body has amazing adaptive abilities, but the onslaught of ways to bring down the vibratory level to tie you to this planet has reached a critical point. The good news is that the shift in focus of purpose by the critical mass within the encompassing planetary consciousness can go beyond removing a few critical dominos as placed by the interesting planners. It could reverse the way they fall thereby releasing the lowering process and allowing the MHz of the bodies to increase. Now that is an interesting supposition to consider!
The picture as it is at the moment is beyond discouraging; it is appalling. However, in playing out various scenarios in holographic possibilities it is not at all hopeless. The keys lie in the cards held by the “ground crew”. How these are played will determine which of the scenarios are available to ensure success. Keep playing! The last game has just begun and the Creator never gambles. He only plays the sure bets. After all he made up the game and he never forgets the rules. You can rely on that! His turn to shuffle and deal is about to come up. Don’t wait for it to happen elsewhere. Be here now!” From pages 145 – 146 Handbook for the New Paradigm
[Note: For anyone one who does not know about this, and/or thinks that the statement “Our interesting negative planners simply lower the MHz of someone they would like to eliminate through their recently devised methods.” is unsubstantiated loony “conspiracy theory”, you need to know about HAARP. In particular, “Entrain the Brain to go Insane?” chapter 22 beginning on page 134 of Angels Don't Play This haarp: Advances in Tesla Technology by Nick Begich, Jeane Manning.]
There are various methods and techniques available for this mental function of reconnection, activation, and transmission/ reception with our invisible dimension ‘higher-self’, Spirit world relatives, and Soul Source. Some of the various methods and techniques available are prayer, meditation, chanting, contemplation, focus breathing, astrological readings, tarot readings, dreams interpretations* , memory regression, and so on, to access the information available in subconscious and unconscious realms. Others are various spirit, body and soul harmonizing techniques and methods, such as Tantric and Yoga practices; Chuluaqui Quodoushka, which is based on sacred shamanic traditions that integrate spirituality and sexuality using asanas/postures, focused breathing, mantras and chanting, movements and dance, various massage techniques; use of certain plant properties, chemical formulas, and Historical Sources & of Knowledge Kundalini - Kundalini Energy. The most important factor is that we all have forgotten our connection, due to oppression, repression, and ‘dis-eased’ wounded psyches that result in unconscious awareness of our inherent potential to be physically, mentally and spiritually healthy, knowledgeable and wise sentient human beings. This is beautifully expressed in the lyrics of a song on a Horace Silver music CD, “All is in Mind”.
 Sapient [<>sapere, to taste, know] full of knowledge, wise
 Individual and personal knowledge and conscious awareness, which is sometimes beyond words to describe, and always beyond any need of validation by others.
 I think it is more verbally accurate to state his conscious awareness of the issue as, he knew, viscerally, and was convinced in his thinking, logically and reasonably, about the truthfulness of reincarnation. Beliefs can and do change. The truth about anything is constant, and does not change, believe it or not. RDD
 Edgar Cayce used the term “The Hall of Records” to refer to the source of information that he tuned into, while in a trance state, to get information of all sorts about the present, past and future.
- On page 212 of Ruth Montgomery’s book, A Search For The Truth, she writes about a man that she calls ‘Mr. A’ who used the term “the ring”: “Living today is a man who has effected thousands of seemingly miraculous healings…he declared that a protective ring of energy encircles each planet and stores within it all knowledge since the beginning of time…anyone who will listen properly can pick up whatever information he needs.”
 "conspiracy theories" ... that term was created by a government think tank back in the 60's to de-rate and ridicule anything not broadcast by the official news media on the evening news ... there was a famous man that once said ... "never attribute to conspiracy that which can amply be attributed to the actions of a bunch of greedy stupid self serving men in power" ...I would add to this ... " and the majority of people who are fooled into believing these men are honest and have the interests of the populous at heart" ... jim mccanney http://www.jmccanne yscience. com/

> " To know who and what you are you must first find who and what you are not". How can we know who we really are? Is it possible to discover our own mystery? Are the ideas and concepts that we have about ourselves real or just passing illusions? How can we find out?
> There are so many questions that we must learn to answer by more questions? I remember a vivid dream that I had when I began my spiritual quest more than 25 years ago... in which enlightened masters who were watching and interrogating me... encircled me. I will never forget their question... which was:" Who are you?" and my answer was the following: "In the spiritual world I am a cosmic being...and in the material world I am called Alice...etc. " I didn't know better then... and as a "cosmic" being or as "Alice" I still gave a limited view of who I thought I was...
> Because whatever I "Think" I am, can only be a self-image a projection of a thought that I have and identify with... and yet we know that thoughts change, ideas about ourselves change also, from day to day and from moment to moment... The opinions and the way that others perceive us, not only change, but are often different and sometimes even conflicting, yet they do send us images about how others perceive us... and these perceptions about who other people think we are, do influence our own perception of ourselves...
> Taking all these facts into consideration, let us ask once more the same question: How can we possibly say that we know ourselves when there are so many different images that we have about ourselves? Our moods, thoughts emotions change with our experiences, anger, vulnerability, fear, bereavement, and the loss of a job can make us change the image that we have of ourselves... So, we can understand that we cannot rely on these fleeting and changing images that we have of ourselves... So how can we find out who we really are? The answer is simple; to know who and what we are, we must investigate and know what we are NOT...
> And to know what we are not, we must WATCH ourselves thoroughly.. .carefully rejecting all that does not bring us back to the basic experience of "I AM"...
> Hence, this shows that twenty five years ago in my vivid dream, the answer that I gave to the Sages gathered around me was a wrong answer: I was looking at myself as an "object" and therefore my answer to them was the following: "when here in the spiritual world I am a Cosmic being - "and when I am in the physical world I am called Alice"
> Why was it wrong? Because the answers came from mental thoughts, ideas and images that I had about myself... thus, without knowing it I saw myself as an "object" ... I am this cosmic being when in the Spiritual world... and I am that person when in a physical body" Therefore, I automatically separated myself from who I AM.
> To find out and learn to question yourself about who and what you really are, you should try to separate regularly and constantly the "I AM" from the "I am this or that..." the moment you add this or that, you look at yourself as an "object" and an object you certainly are NOT... and while you are questioning yourself, try to feel and experience deeply what you really are...and what it means to just BE... feel the I AM...empty of anything else... without adding I am ...this...or that... be conscious of not having images of any subpersonality. ..You will find out that to feel EMPTY and just be the pure "I AM" will be difficult, but worth all the effort...
> Unfortunately, we are so much used to look at ourselves, as "objects" that we don't realize what we are doing to ourselves... In fact, all our mental and emotional patterns tell us different stories about who and what we are... sometimes we are a father, a mother, an employee, a teacher, we are this one moment and that at another one... we identify all the time with one or a multitude of subpersonalities. .. when what we need in reality, is just to be open and become the unconditional "I AM"... pure
> I do hope that this essay will send a clear message about the importance of discovering the SUBSTANCE of your BEING-NESS - which is the I AM without attachments. ..The clearer you understand that on the level of your thought and emotional patterns you automatically describe yourself to yourself and others as an object...and as a result become something separated from who you really are...just pure Essence...
> However, the moment you succeed in describing yourself in negative terms only, meaning in knowing that you can never be anything else than pure Essence - a sublime Substance... and when you understand that descriptions of what you do and the way you act and react are just fleeting descriptions, changing actions and events that are created to make us interact with others in a world of our own creation... When this realization takes place in you, then, you will know that by saying: "I am doing this or that.... or I am this or that, are necessary subpersonalities created by the ego to describe a role or many roles that we play whilst carrying our responsibilities. ..
> Therefore, the "I AM" can never become a "tool", but the "I am this or that" is just a device used to describe something in the world of duality...
> The quicker you experience the difference between the two aspects of the "I AM" and the "I am this...I am that" the better and nearer you will come to realize your limitless BEING... and awaken to a new Reality...
