Paranormal Powers (rating 3/10)

I don’t even remember how this book ended up in my Kindle library, but the book cover was captivating so I decided to read it. I am pretty sure the picture is fake, the proportions are a bit off. But here are my notes:

Introduction.

Talk about physics. Quantum mechanics. There isn’t really “matter”, only different energetic levels. Quotes about the nature of reality from Planck, Schopenhauer, Clarke. Siddhalaya. Notes on the book, translation and the so-called Masters. “If you desire the unseen essence passionately, and strive with dedication, then surely, perhaps in some moment when all the noise of the senses is stilled, you will find yourself one with true reality“. Introducing Lama Karpa, High lama of Siddhalaya. “Let each and every thought, image,word and action reflect what you most desire and nothing else.” Reminds me of something I read once about Milarepa, when he was given some food and then criticized for eating it straight away without praying or offering a song to his patron. He said something along the lines of “I do my praying and offerings in my inner spirit”. No need to share with the outside world, sometimes. “Let not your right know what your left one is doing” are the words attributed to Jesus Christ. God is found inside – not outside.

There is no need to transform anything, only to recognize all that exists for what it really is“. We are already gods. We are already enlightened. How to reach this recognition? Stillness would seem to be a way. Stillness of the mind. “Only when the lake is still can its true depth be known. And only in that depth can the real be found“. Background of the practitioners. Story about retrieving some manuscripts. Kanji, “beyond [the author’s] ability to grasp.” The ultimate nature of reality. Call the siddha. Stopping a storm. “Energy is simply consciousness objectified. This is a key understanding“. You can stop the storm, but you believe you can’t. You know you can’t. A note on masters. “…a master is not…a teacher of information, but rather someone who facilitates another’s ability to access all the answers they require, on their own.” Reality is perception. All masters were once on the same level you’re standing on right now. A master shouldn’t tell you a lot, rather he should teach you how to find your own answers. I think about this now: my friends the Jehova’s Witnesses have never explained to me how am I supposed to live my life. I’ve been meeting with them for at least two years yet I feel they have never really explained to me the do’s and dont’s of their religion. A man is standing on an island shouting at the people on shore: Come here! Come here! And the people on shore replied: How?

The physical world as symbols. Like words on a page, the objects we see in reality around us are not the information. They are symbols of the information. If you destroy a mathematics book, are you destroying mathematics? The realization of this fact and the ability to generate images with purpose is what grant us freedom. The potential of power and knowledge. Consciousness creates everything. Your imagination is your most great tool. Matter is energy in a frozen state. Fundamental understandings. Sari and Lemia. We are creators. “If you do not impose impeccable discipline on your thoughts…you can rely on them to be random and unruly.” There is no problem without solution. Civilization must be transmitted. Culture is taught to us. I wonder: Should we seek for god in those things which are natural, not transmitted? Is good not more accessible when you examine the moving of the tides, the evolution of the stars, than when you are reading the Bible or the Qoran? The masters don’t teach you the secrets of the universe.You will be disappointed if you think they do. Instead, they teach you the secrets of yourself. And in yourself you will find all the answers. Discard old ideas, reach for higher knowledge. As you grow, you leave your old clothes behind. Advanced understanding Use affirmations to detect and transform your deepest beliefs. “Consciousness is all-that-is. I am one with all consciousness; this is my unity with all that exists- hence I stand as one with the sum of all intelligence; this is my wisdom and knowledge. I am one with all consciousness; this is my unity with all that exists-hence I stand as one with the sum of all energy. This is my power.” Kalika-Khenmetaten. Before you acquire and manifest power you need to be aware that this power exists and is available to you. Utilizing etheric energy. The individual person is awareness. The body is a concentration of energy. This energy comes through the centers, known as the chakras. But they are no higher chakras, lower chakras. Each one has a purpose. The first sphere of awareness is physical, the second is the etheric and manasic levels. A visualization to gather energy:

Sit straight. Hands on your lap. Think about the sun above you. Breath in, five seconds. Breath out, ten seconds. Repeat 7 times. Now imagine the sun again. Move your consciousness up until you arrive inside the sun’s aura. Feel the energy of the sun filling you. Imagine yourself as pure light, pure energy. Now slowly return to your body, while still keeping this idea of being a being of light. Imagine yourself surrounded by a sphere of light, generated from this powerful energy. You are a sun. Hold this image in your mind. The important part is to see the light, feel the light, be filled with light, be surrounded by light.

Visualization practice. Through visualization you gather the energies necessary for your image to manifest. Focus on only one purpose at once. Factors that influence this technique: 1) Realization of the fact that images create your reality 2) Conscious and unconscious beliefs 3) Mastery of thoughts and inner images 4) Strength of your intention to create the reality desired 5) Creating the necessary conditions in the world to allow your idea to manifest 6) Available etheric power 7) Certainty of the success of the visualization process 8) Clarity of the thoughts and images 9) Consistency of these thoughts and images 10) Detachment from the result.

(I had a small insight. The step 10, detachment, creates a void. When you drop a big stone in the water, it displaces the water, but it soon rushes back to fill the void, because the energy levels had increased outside the empty space. Water is pushed to the side, but there is a reaction to push it back. Same with images. When you visualize, you create an image and feed it. When you detach yourself from it, it starts to starve. Desperate, it will start to look for places where it can go to feed itself. It will go to places or energetic levels which are most similar to its energetic imprint. Like a magnet. Then it will probably merge with those energetic levels, kinda like a little cell in agar.io merging with a bigger cell. How does that bring you closer to that result? You detached from it, how does it find you back? Maybe it doesn’t need your awareness to find you back? It if’s a visualization of yourself, then it already has your let’s say “energetic address”. It doesn’t need you to agree, it just manifests itself. I’m not sure. The first part makes some sense. )

You can visualize a movie screen, and then imagine that you are watching a video of yourself, doing what you want to do, or getting what you want to get. Imagine the angle, as if you were watching video that someone recorded with their cellphone’s. See yourself looking at the camera, smiling and waving in recognition. (Psychocybernetics would take this one step further and tell you to put yourself into the video, as the main character. See the guy holding the camera which recorded the video you just saw. Smile and wave at the camera. Now see around you, you have what you want. PS: Wine seems to make it easier for me to visualize things). Reflctions on the teachings. The goal is to awaken the adept from the dream of reality, to reality. But there is no dreamer: the dream is dreaming itself, distracted from itself by itself. Only consciousness is real and eternal: The consciousness of the living universe. Planck, Schrodinger, Einstein, Bohr, Pauli, Wheeler. “There is no matter as such” Max Planck. “In truth, there is only one mind” Schrodinger. “We inescapably involved in bringing about that which appears to be happening” Wheeler. Afterward to U.S. edition.

Part III: Additional Material Anthology

Foreword. Excerpts from different books. True experiences with a sorceress of the four portals. Zhang zhung culture. Miwoche and the B’on religion. (note to self: read the diamond sutra. Resume your Lamrim meditations). Table of contents. Kriyasakti. Materializing ice. “I held the ideal of tea in the Universal until it became formed to a lower vibration”. A game of spiritual hide and seek. A great master speaks, immense power of the ancients revealed. Table of contents. About the life of Kalika Khenmetaten. “Each man is already a prince, each woman a princess; they need only to bring that recognition into awareness to realize their inherent ability“. To use these powers, you need to know they exist, and now that they are available at your disposal. Encounters with the celestials, the living part of a timeless legend. Egypt. Earth’s first civilization: Antarctica, 55 million BC. Ancient civilizations. The author has included material from a fake news website about NASA finding ancient structures under the ice in Antarctica. Here’s an example:

As of now we can only speculate as to what these features are, but the launching if ICESat-2 in 2018 could lead to other major discoveries

I tried searching this quote online. 4 pages of results, most of which are websites linking the same article on worldnewsdailyreport.com that is no longer there. Very unreliable information.

Extensive evidence supports the theory that an advanced, non-human species created a civilization including complex structures on the Antarctic continent approximately 55.5 million years ago“5

Evidence is lacking.

Excerpts from Quantum Consciousness, Psychokinetic and Extrasensory Powers. Nothing new or worth mentioning. Excerpt from A Chronicle of Power. Description of the village of Siddhalaya. Village that, as well as many other things in this book, appears mentioned nowhere else on the Internet. Nothing worth mentioning.

The latter part of the book was very disappointing. Quotes and excerpts from other books. In the end, here’s what I learned from this material:

  • Energy is caused by consciousness. This idea makes some sense. Imagine you want to move your arm. How do you do it? First, you need to be aware of what you want. Then, somehow, your brain creates the electrical impulses necessary to move the muscles. But consciousness comes first. So, different levels of consciousness might be able to originate different types of energies.
  • Accepting that these powers are real and at your disposal is one of the requisites to be able to use them. And even if you think you accept this fact, your brain might have its own ideas about how the universe works and what you’re capable of. You might need to work on your subconscious as well as your conscious.
  • Your brain is always at work. If you don’t make it work towards your spiritual ascension, it will work towards something else and hinder your growth. Make of every experience a spiritual experience.

Would I recommend this book to other people? No. Reading online reviews it seems these and other books by the same publishing house suffer from the same problems. Disjointed information, filling material, and unreliable sources. I’m not sure if I want to buy or read any more of the author’s books. Maybe the ones the publishers offer freely from time to time.

As a side note, all the pictures of “Staff” for this publisher are fake. Adds injury to insult.

All fake pictures

Not a good sign

Work in progress: Myth and Reality

But, what is myth? Not just fiction, myth explains the origin of an idea or a physical element. Where do chickens come from. Why does the sun rise in the morning. Where do people go when they die. They explain the creation of a reality. The people that appear in myths are usually supernatural. Because only from the outside world can this one come into being. Or at least, it is of utmost importance because it took place in a very distant far time, a time which is before time.

It proves itself truthful because of the reality we experience. The myth about the origin of the swan’s black beak is true because well, look at the swan! What color is its beak? Where did black color come from? Pigments in bone? What are bird’s beaks made of? *pauses to check wikipedia* Oh, it’s a bone structure covered in hard keratinized epidermis. So a bone with skin. I see. Also, swans don’t have black beaks. It’s their faces that are black. Hell, I fed swans for two months when I was in Scotland and I already forgot about the swans!

Myths explain why you do things. Why do you have to arrange your house in this or that way. Why you don’t plant tomatos during july. Just an example. But why? Because of myth. And myth is so valuable as part of your culture, that you believe in it.

Myths are not fables: the fable of the fox and the grape vine is not real, and it is clearly so. Animals don’t speak, and foxes probably don’t eat grapes. Do they? wikipedia…yes, they do. But they are not very healthy for them apparently.

In some cultures, myths are kept away from the ears of the profane. Fables can be told to children and women. Myths, however, are kept for the religious castes. Today, our myths are called history, but our histories share much with the myths. They explain why we are here, why we do what we do, and we believe in them regardless of the evidence to believe in them (sometimes, familiarity replaces evidence. We believe the earth is round because entities familiar to us also affirm this).

In some cultures , myth is not just knowledge, but rather it gives the knower the power over the thing or creature that the myth is about. The myth of the creation of fire grants the power to start a fire. Hunters who know the mythical origin of the animal they are hunting are expected to be more successful than others who don’t. The people that know the legend about the origin of a healing herb are the only ones that can use to heal.

Magic and prestige of origins

Myths resemble cosmogonies on a smaller scale. They detail the change in the world, which happened in a time and a place that was not ours. Change consequence of each we have what we have today. Since they have a similar origin storyline, sometimes they begin detailing the cosmogony that surrounds the story. How was the universe created, how was the earth created, the animals, the humans, and all the way down to actual kings and families that inhabit the earth. It’s not infrequent to have long genealogies included as the opening.

How to consecrate a book

I share here these notes of mine that I don’t remember now if I got from listening a podcast or watching a youtube video, but I’m doing some housekeeping and the notebook has to be thrown away. I think they are useful and I want to keep them and share them for other people.

Books are repositories of ideas. Maybe they are even alive! Who knows. I have heard of people mentioning that certain books have spirits that you can actually invoke and chat with. For example I remember reading somebody online claiming that the spirit that inhabited the New Avatar Power books had told them that the power it contained was no longer usable, and that it was no longer as effective as it was 20 or 30 years ago. If attention is power, perhaps when the books are known the most, that is when their spells are the most effective, or their knowledge is the most wise.

Here is what my notes say about preparing to read a book. Again, not my original ideas.

  1. Have the author’s name and author’s title printed each on one page, with no other text apart from the names. Stare at them for a little while. What do you think the person looks like? What is his character? Read the author’s name out loud and imagine what they put in the book. What does the title tell you about the content?
  2. Peruse the table of content carefully and slowly. Go from the top to bottom. Absorb the headlines and the basic structure of the book. How do you want to feel at the end?
  3. Feel like the knowledge is food. You have seen the table of contents, now you need to feel hungry for the words. Gaze at the title again, imagine it shining like a sigil. Trace it in the air.
  4. Visualize yourself sitting (or standing, or lying down) reading the book and absorbing the hidden meanings, what hides between the lines. Absorb the concepts from beyond that which is clear. See beyond sight.
  5. Take this visualization into a sphere, make it clear in your third eye, see yourself turning the last page of the book. It is done!
  6. Now you can start reading!

There’s one last part that I don’t understand but I include here in case somebody does.

7. Fold page. Put it out of your view. Consecrate with your blood.

I’m wondering which page do you fold? The title? Why? Put what out of view, the whole book? Consecrate with your blood I guess just means adding a bit of blood maybe to the cover or something I would do would be smear blood over the side of the book, like when you close the book, paint the sides with a colored marker, and then open it again to find a nice colored square around each page. Like that, but blood.

Happy reading!
