From The Oracle of Delphi to The Sleeping Prophet: A Brief Primer on Channeling

From The Oracle of Delphi to The Sleeping Prophet: A Brief Primer on Channeling

Heads up! Our posts may contain affiliate links. While this doesn’t affect you at all (you pay no more or less), we’ll receive a small commission, which helps us keep this whole show running. Thanks. ;)

Edgar Cayce’s legacy is an undeniable trail of psychic accomplishment. Whether or not skeptics acknowledge his accolades is irrelevant. The truth is, he provided lasting cures for many sick people, and accurately predicted many global changes. A person does not get labelled as a prophet without such success.

However, in providing the predictions and treatments that he did, Cayce assumed a trance like state whereby an entity or voice spoke through him – a phenomenon commonly known as channeling. Such events can be perceived as ludicrous or theatrical by pundits, but even in the early 1900’s, channeling was not a new occurrence.

In Ancient Greece the Oracle of Delphi — a line of priestesses named The Pythia — is said to have correctly predicted the fall of Sparta, and the rise of Phillip of Macedonia (father of Alexander the Great).

Most people will also be aware of Nostradamus, from the Middle Ages, whose writings are still being scrutinized for information on future events.

What these two historical psychics also have in common is controversy. Pythia’s visions have been linked to ethylene exposure – a gas that’s apparent in volcanic regions, while Nostradamus’ writings have been described as blather, or even a kind of poetry. Despite these criticisms both figures continued — and continue — to have their devotees.

More recently, modern day channels have emerged as authors. Two great examples are the initially skeptical (!) Jane Roberts and her acclaimed book ‘Seth Speaks (together with the rest of the Seth books it forms a massive body of work) and Carla Rueckert’sThe Law of One series.

What’s intriguing about these two writers and their material is the utter level of intellectual acuity and depth (and, in the case of Seth, scientifically ambitious) probing of numerous topics that remain conjecture even on the very cutting edge of said respective fields today.

And, of course, there’s the overarching themes involving life’s more complex and timeless mysteries that are touched on as well — questions such as: ‘Why are we here? And, where do we come from?’ Cayce, too, went into detail on such topics.

To demonstrate, I’ve pulled two quotations from each of the above-mentioned books. Only the individual mind can decide what value, if any, these writings may have to them.

Quotations from ‘Seth Speaks’:

“The basis and firm groundwork of the material, and its primary contribution, lies in the concept that consciousness itself indeed creates matter. . . and that consciousness is not limited or bound by time or space; time and space. . . [are] necessary distortions, or adopted conditions, forming a strata for physical existence.”

“On the one hand you take life too seriously, and on the other, you do not take playful existence seriously enough.”

Quotations from ‘The Law of One’:

Consider, if you will, the path your life-experience complex has taken. Consider the coincidences and odd circumstances by which one thing flowed to the next. Consider this well.”

“Each mind / body / spirit or mind / body / spirit complex has an existence simultaneous with that of creation. It is not dependent upon any physical vehicle. However, in order to evolve, change, learn, and manifest the Creator, the physical vehicles appropriate to each density are necessary.”

At the very least, the information is thought-provoking. Both books explore existence, loosely, from theoretical scientific perspectives.

The problem — as is always the case under the now nearly globally-ubiquitous umbrella of materialist doctrine, is that none of it can be ‘proven’. So we’re left to our own devices (namely, we’re left to revive and marry our intuition to our intellect) in order to exhume, examine and redress not only our beliefs regarding the veracity of such work, but a large number of our personal presuppositions about life — including our intimate personal lives — as well.

I would argue, however, that this is precisely the point.
