JANE ROBERTS AND SETH
The key words are "free and natural choosing." The Devil cannot enter any mind against its free and natural choosing.
Jane Roberts and her
husband, Robert Butts, lived in an apartment in Elmyra, New York. They
were both "free thinkers," espousing current "new age" trends, engaging
in mind explorations through ESP, (extra-sensory perception), and occupying
themselves with other "trendy" intellectual or spiritist activities.
By their own free will
they chose to actively explore contact with the Devil. Little did they
know what they were doing.
Jane's unique abilities
as a "psychic communicator" provided a vehicle for exceptional insight
into the techniques employed by the Devil. In the course of her voluminous
"channelings" he explained many aspects of his activity. Hardly anyone
recognizes the explicit nature, and value, of the information he offered.
Rob reported on the descriptions
of inner experience given him by Jane:
Was she unconscious of
her body during such actions? Did she move instinctively, not consciously
thinking about her actions? Or was she in a half-conscious state?
We cannot answer the
questions precisely. If she was not aware of what was happening to herself
when her consciousness went "like a draft up the flue," should she have
been immune to physical desires?
On the other hand we
can compare it with demon possession in some of the biblical reports. The
human victim cried for help, conscious of his condition.
In any case, this was
Devil possession. Her bodily movements and features are illustrated by
the photographs published by her and her husband in the many printings
of Seth Speaks.
Rob described her features
and body changes as "angular." They were far more than angular; because
of the delusion about the source of this possession they could not see
it in its true condition--as hideous.
If Caligastia can possess
one person he can possess another. The deep question before us is the depth
of that possession--can he use the body to perform his wishes contrary
to the conscious choices of his human subject?
As part of his control
employs another technique. He renames his human subjects. Jane and Robert
were renamed to Ruburt and Joseph. All those human mortals who have given
themselves to him receive new names. The name changes are important. They
help the human mortal to reassign his psychological loyalties. As a new
"spiritual" being with a new name he reassigns his loyalties to that being
who gives him the new name.
The name changes are
used for another deadly purpose. When the Devil brings them into action
they will need psychological reasons why it is not the persons themselves
who are performing his deadly work, but rather their true "spiritual selves."
If it is their "spiritual selves" who perform that deadly work the other
selves, the "earthly" selves, can continue in their daily routines with
some balming of consciousness.
In attempt to describe
her inner experience Jane made other remarks.
These remarks show that
Jane retained memory of the trance sessions, or was partially conscious
during those possessions. She felt she was participating in the Devil's
personality expression, with "emotional richness," but, as she admits,
on a very strange level.
Experiences of inner
visions has been reported on a wide scale in recent years by those who
engage in spirit communications, or who have received "teachers." Accounts
from the era of classical spiritualism, for example from Bach in the decade
of the 1940's, or from John Newbrough around the turn of the twentieth
century, do not contain such reports. If this is a recent phenomenon it
would mean an increase in "spirit" ability to more intimately enter human
In private conversation
Scott Foerster of Ellicott City, Maryland corrected my impression of those
visionary experiences. He stated they would be more properly described
as "pictures," not visions. On my inquiry he said he had seen forests with
mountains rising in the background, a beautiful portrayal. Ron Bessler
of York, Pennsylvania described rings of light.
When the Devil, through Edgar Cayce, prescribed cures for others at geographical distances he needed a name and address to locate them. Given that information he could "prescribe" cures. Since he is totally aware of all activities currently transpiring on a planet, or at any past time, it is simple for him to flash that knowledge through a human mind that comes under his control. This was the phenomenon Jane Roberts reported when she saw distant contemporary scenes. His projections may vary, from scenes of the contemporary world, or from a world which he fabricates. If he invents pictorial scenes through "pictures" or "visions," how can his subjects distinguish the difference? In either case they are projections from his mind. Even more, how can they deny the reality of that which they see? When he leads his cadre on their death marches he can carry them with any picture of beauty he desires, appropriately formed to their individual needs.
Jane understood that
her unique frame of mind, and mental abilities were crucial to "Seth's"
How truly diabolical
he is, in recruitment of those who do not have their hearts centered on
He has never relaxed
his efforts to build a cadre of people he can bring under his control.
He continues with increasing intensity.
In Session #511, the beginning of the Seth book, "Seth" makes remarks which show his true colors. Little do his followers recognize the significance of those statements, or how he makes fools of them. The remarks are so literally true.
I am very sure this is
a precise statement, containing remorse. But he is insane. He has long
since lost his mental equilibrium.
Through Jane he told
us something of his personal functioning, and the limitations which bind
A recurrent question
is how one personality, spirit or otherwise, can enter so many human minds
simultaneously. This is a natural question for human mortals who think
in linear, sequential fashion. We cannot help but think linearly, since
we are sequential beings. We go from moment to moment; our minds go from
point to point. But spirit beings are not bound by such "time" sequential
This remark is uniquely
interesting; he has ability to gather information simultaneously from many
sensory sources, such as human mind, and to react to multiples of human
contact points. Caligastia can perceive many simultaneous events, recall
all events of all earth history, enter many minds at one time, converse
with them, and direct them. Certainly, as a limited being within a limited
space realm he has limits, he is not an infinite being. But for human mortals
his abilities are stupendous, truly beyond our conceptual imagination.
These remarks clearly
and distinctly describe his abilities and the gamut of his functional capacities.
In the days of classical spiritualist phenomena such frank confessions
did not occur. Now he has minds who have been educated technically, who
are conversant with higher conceptual levels, and who have "new-age" orientations--minds
which did not exist commonly prior to World War II. Furthermore, he no
longer has a fear of being "found out." The days to his "strike" are now
too short for any social influence to retard his plans.
He also spoke of his
ability to communicate with one human mortal, and not another, due to their
"psychological" or "spiritual" limitations. This relates directly to Jesus'
remarks about those who know him and the Father. The latter are not susceptible
to the entry of the Prince into their minds because of their love for the
Again, he indicates how
he uses various mortal aliases for his nefarious purposes. He frankly admits
that he assumes many different personalities; they are known to us as Lazaris,
or Michael, or Ashtar, or innumerable others. And he shows that each mortal
is different in their limitations of "psychic" reception.
In a session on March
18, 1970 he again referred to his "using" multiple human personalities:
He describes in some
detail the limitations of his subjects, the processes he uses in establishing
contact, how he reduces barriers for easy entry into their minds, and the
methods he uses to obtain control. These are the techniques he now employs
so extensively around the world to accomplish his deadly purpose.
Each of these individual
statements is incredibly important to our understanding of what he is doing.
When he first peruses
his subjects he determines the elements which constitute that individual's
psychological profile. He can then adapt his relationship with them to
set up the psychological structure he needs for his purpose. Note that
this is a teaching process. He requires time to accomplish his purpose,
not because of his limitations, but because of the linear time frame of
the human mortal.
He must bring them along,
cause them to grow, according to his purpose. They are tender shoots which
require careful watering and nurturing. Importantly, he would not be able
to use unstable personalities.
He uses those mental
and psychological frameworks which are familiar and attractive to the individual.
He will use their social, economic, political, ideational and religious
contexts as suitable. Thus he can get his foot into their mental and psychological
doors, in order that they not thrust him away. He will be warm and friendly
Here again he is explicit.
He knows that his purpose is alien to our social and psychological frameworks.
Therefore, he must train his subjects to new attitudes and psychological
reference that will permit him to control their behavior. They must be
conditioned to rationales which they will become willing to accept for
the projects he has organized. What better rational than a great religious
cleansing of mankind, aimed at a new world order. It is absolutely necessary
that the "thorns" of the world be removed in order to achieve that new
order. And what better vehicle for such cleansing than those who are dedicated
to "God," his definition of God.
Once again he is explicit
in his description of possession; his consciousness is now within the mind
He can teach all the
elements of his contact and control, but he cannot hint at his ultimate
purpose. That would ruin his plan.
And eventually, after working with his subjects for sufficient length of time, and with sufficient psychological justification, he can assume control. He can take over direct control of their bodies; he can Devil-possess.
|ASSORTED NEFARIOUS COMMUNICATIONS|
Jon Klimo provided a survey of "channeling" activities, both from history and from current activities. Although he claimed channeling as an explanation for many bone fide religious experiences, and although his list is far from exhaustive, not covering many countries, he did provide some indication of the scope of this activity.
British artist and journalist
Benjamin Creme believes he is the channel for Christ, whom he refers to
as "Maitreya, head of the planets spiritual hierarchy, and the new world
order." Creme publishes The Reappearance of Christ and the Masters of
Wisdom. He addresses such topics
as "The Christ and His Reappearance," "The Masters and [Spiritual] Hierarchy,"
"The Effect on Existing Institutions" of Christ's return, and "The
Anti-Christ: The Forces of Evil." One message received from the "Christ
presence" through Breme's channeling is the following:
How clear he has been!
Nothing separates him from his people. Each will see him, or at least those
images he wishes to present of himself. How will they be able to deny such
powerful presentations, of great beauty, and of heavenly light?
His body of workers,
his cadre, will show how the problems of the world can be solved, indeed,
when he takes them into murderous cleansing of the earth of all those foolhardy
human mortals who believe in a true God.
Indeed, they will see him very soon, each in his own way, by whatever images he deems suitable to a particular individual. Nothing separates him from his agents, literally nothing, for he is actually and truly in them, in their minds. He will express what he really is when he takes them to his murderous tasks. His cadre, his willing workers, will freely give themselves to him. Great changes are even now going on within the hearts and minds of his followers as he conditions them to his presence, and to his desires. When he scalps their minds to perform his deeds they will truly believe they are the mechanisms of new life. On all the psychic and spiritual planes this new life will flow, reaching their hearts and their souls and their bodies as he brings them closer to him, and to the Source of Life Itself, the overpowering bliss of life he will show them. He will channel it through them and they will believe they are the servants of this great god, performing a necessary service for the benefit of all mankind as he redistributes the spiritual loyalties of the world to himself.
This phenomena in England
shows how no land escapes which forgets God and proceeds into "new age"
Other examples exist.
Ken Carey, a former postal
employee turned California farmer, did a stupendous channeling of "revelation"
during a concentrated snowy eleven days.
Klimo summarized this material.
He is creating an organic unity of his agents, into a new planetary species, operating in harmony with his Creation, as was always meant to be. He was deprived of that Creation because he rebelled; now he is preparing to retrieve it from the hands of his God.
The "source" urges that his subjects should --
The subjects are further
urged to --
Two-thirds the way through
the eleven-day transmission, the source identified itself:
How utterly profound
will appear the images this being will create in the minds of all who give
themselves to him. He calls to them, to die to all definitions of self,
to take up his spirit, and to follow in the lines of his images.
And he pretends to be
"Christ," as he first appeared through Jesus.
True blasphemy indeed,
and none of his agents recognize it. When he appears to them in resplendent
glory they will have no alternative but to believe that he really is the
Christ. And they will do whatever he requests.
In many of the transmissions
Caligastia speaks of the changes taking place on the world. Jack Pursel
was a regional insurance supervisor in Florida when he suddenly and mysteriously
began to "channel." The entity which "came through" Pursel identified himself
as Lazaris. Klimo did an interview with Pursel, to obtain these remarks
Yes, he respects both,
but he is going to do his utmost to eliminate, once and for all, that fundamentalist
spirituality which has been such a bane to him.
Spiritual changes are taking place ever more rapidly, until the day comes when he will strike. No more will there be any person on this earth who will shrug it off with "I shall wait and see." Everyone will be caught; many will be murdered. Everyone will be forced to decide their loyalties. Everyone, that is, who lives to make such decisions. God is now bringing a great spiritual baptism to this planet; he will find his true sons and daughters. No one will escape. And he uses the Devil to perform this task.
