experiencers have learned many profound insights
concerning the Earth and our relation to it.
Insights from before the Big Bang and insights
concerning the entire history of the Earth have
1. Brief Summary
As spirit beings, all humans participated
in the creation of the universe. Everything in the universe
was first created in spirit and then recreated in the physical.
The Earth is a great created being and manifestation of
God which is an expression of the Divine Mind. We come to
Earth for the opportunity to advance our souls to be the
ideal and complete companions with God. The Earth exists
in a realm where free will is completely dominant. For this
reason, the Earth is a kind of laboratory for souls from
other afterlife realms to come for soul growth. The Earth
is a kind of boot camp where we come to meet and overcome
the temptations of the Earth upon our bodies for the purpose
of perfecting our soul. The Earth is also like a college
in a university where souls bring their ideals in order
to be tested by applying these ideals in a physical like
so that we can know for sure whether we have really changed
and do possess these ideals.
Although our goal is to eventually earn
the opportunity to learn in higher afterlife schools, our
greatest goal on Earth is to bring heaven to Earth. Earth
is in the process of domesticating itself and humans are
playing a key role. Earth is a living system that recycles
itself endlessly toward the goal of attaining complete oneness
with God at the physical and soul level. Earth is also a
teaching ground for those in spirit who observe the living
to learn important lessons.
Everything on Earth is evolving exactly
the way it should. When the harmonic balance on the Earth
becomes unstable, such as when humans transgress against
other humans and nature, love is the way to restore the
peace and harmony on Earth.
2. Earth in the Beginning
The following are insights from experiencers
concerning the Earth and its inhabitant's relationship to
Earth is an expression of the divine mind with its own laws,
its own plan, and its own evolution. (Edgar
participated as spirits in the creation of the Earth which
we created for the purpose of our spiritual growth. We participated
in planning the conditions on Earth including the laws of
physics and mortality which would govern us and the spiritual
powers we would be able to access. (Betty
one of us is a blessing to the Earth. We are legendary throughout
the universe for our ability to dream. We came up with the
best answer to the meaning of life. We dreamed it up. (Mellen-Thomas
drama of creation is unbounded and is neither limited by
our perception of it, nor by our ability or inability to
comprehend it. This drama is as stupendous as it is terrifying,
as awesome as it is wonderful, as miraculous as it is mysterious,
as beautiful as it is the ultimate act of all-consuming
love. To witness even a glimpse of such glory, to know the
Real Truth of it, leaves a mark so deep and so profound
you are forever uplifted and transformed. (Dr.
in the universe was first created in spirit and then recreated
in the physical. (Betty
of creation originated from essence to thought, progressing
to thought into thought-form, and from thought-form into
particle-form or atomic-form; in other words, three-dimensional
Earth was fashioned from the ideas and discoveries which
originated in the spirit world. Everything on Earth came
from the spirit world. Everything on Earth possesses a soul.
3. Earth and its Evolution
often have misgivings about even temporarily leaving the
spirit realms of self-understanding, comradeship, and compassion
to go to the Earth where there exists uncertainty and fear
brought about by aggressive, competing humans. Our experience
in the spirit realms rejuvenates us and helps motivate us
toward another Earth experience. We remember the physical
pleasures of life on Earth with fondness and even nostalgia.
When the wounds of a past life are healed in the spirit
realms and we are again totally at one with ourselves, we
begin to feel the pull of having a physical expression for
our identity. (Dr.
Earth cycle of souls is finished when our attractions to
Earth are overcome to the extent that our soul is as free
within our body as outside our body. This is the condition
when our body is no longer a hindrance to the free expression
of our soul. It is when the conscious mind merges with the
subconscious mind. (Edgar
Earth is a great processor of energy, and individual consciousness
evolves out of that into each one of us. The center of the
Earth is this great transmuter of energy, just as you see
in pictures of our Earth's magnetic field. That's our cycle,
pulling reincarnated souls back in and through it again.
come to Earth for the evolution of our soul into conscious
is a universal process that occurs all throughout nature.
Not only do bodies evolve, but the consciousness within
bodies evolve as well. (Amber
we choose to clean up the mess we create on Earth, we will
not contribute to the mess of others and this will contribute
to the healing of the Earth. Reincarnation is the process
which allows us to return to Earth to "clean up our mess."
is not restricted to linear progression. It only appears
that way. (Dr.
is evolving exactly the way it should and the ultimate destiny
for every living being is to return to the Source, the Light,
Pure Love. (Juliet
soon as the Earth experience has been thoroughly comprehended
-either through reincarnation or through the exchange of
experience with others on other realms - the candidate may
proceed to realms beyond the reach of the Earth mind. (Frederick
often refuse to interfere with nature so that evolution
can continue unabated. This is the same reason why God does
not interfere with our evolution. (Dannion
4. Earth as the "School of Hard Knocks"
Earth is like a college in a university where souls come
for soul growth. (Edgar
Earth is a tough boot camp and school for us to attain soul
The Earth is a
difficult school where we must meet and overcome the temptations
that exist here. (Ruth
Earth is like a rigged roulette wheel in a casino. As much
we one try, we can never fully satisfy our worldly desires.
It's virtually impossible. (Daniel
Earth realm is like a laboratory for other afterlife realms.
This is because only in the physical realm is free will
completely dominant. In the other realms, some measure of
control is kept over the soul to see that it learns the
proper lessons. (Edgar
Earth has a theme for learning and we choose to come here
to experience it. We practice on other planetary realms
to be ready to live on the Earth. The Earth is the ultimate
experience for a soul because it can evolve faster here
than anywhere else. The lessons we need to learn are difficult
to learn without having a physical body. (David
Earth is the ideal place for spiritual growth because of
the influence of our physical body. Opportunities to experience
a full range of love is ideally available on Earth. Love
which has been misused or misdirected, is also best corrected
on Earth. (Nora
a soul has a spiritual ideal and desires to know if it actually
possesses that ideal, the soul can come to Earth to be tested
after applying this ideal in a physical life. The Earth
is a good school for overcoming certain weaknesses in ways
that only a body of flesh can. We apply ourselves here on
Earth to see if those weaknesses are truly overcome. Here
we can learn for sure whether we have really changed. (Edgar
who enter the Earth have to learn their final lessons on
Earth, where free will is called into play in a fashion
different from existence on other realms. (Edgar
Earth exists for us to test our ideals and learn from them.
Earth is only one realm of learning. There are many others.
Earth is not our natural home and we did not originate here.
Earth is only a temporary place for our schooling and everyone
has cultivated a certain degree of light here. (Betty
most and only important reason for souls to come to Earth
is for either learning or teaching. Most times both. (Darlene
Earth is a manifestation of God. For us to benefit from
our experience here, we must rediscover our oneness with
God on Earth. (John
are to leave the world a little better than we found it.
Earth experience is an opportunity for our soul to advance
toward the ideal of complete companionship with God - the
position of co-creator in the vast system of Universal Mind.
Earth is unique because it was designed for humans to forever
play, learn, and grow on it. Nature was designed for us
as physical entities to access spiritual energy to help
us advance. (David
Howard Storm was given the following
insights from beings of light after his life review
when he was fearful of returning to Earth life and afraid
he would make mistakes again: Mistakes are an acceptable
part of being human. We are here to make all the mistakes
we want because it is through our mistakes that we learn.
As long as we try to do what we know to be right, we will
be on the right path. If we make a mistake, we should fully
recognize it as a mistake, then put it behind us and simply
try not to make the same mistake again. The important thing
is to try our best, keep our standards of goodness and truth,
and not compromise them to win people's approval. God loves
us just the way we are, mistakes and all. When we make a
mistake, we should ask for forgiveness. After that, it would
be an insult if we don't accept that we are forgiven. We
shouldn't continue going around with a sense of guilt, and
we should try not to repeat our mistakes. We should learn
from our mistakes. God wants us to do what we want to do.
That means making choices - and there isn't necessarily
any right choice. There is a spectrum of possibilities,
and we should make the best choice from those possibilities.
If we do that, we will receive help from the Other Side.
5. Earth as Our Larger Self
act of destruction of God's environment on Earth multiplies
into destructive forces of nature - earthquakes, floods,
pestilence, nuclear destruction and nuclear waste. (Archangel
Michael to Ned Dougherty)
Earth changes are a reflection of all the social upheaval
and violence happening all over the world at the moment.
on Earth was designed to live forever. Death came when humanity
fell away from the balance of nature and allowed themselves
to be affected by their creations that violate the natural
laws of the universe. Loving one another is the way to restore
peace and harmony on Earth. We must once again be in harmonic
balance with the Earth if we want to survive as a race and
live forever on Earth. It is not too late. (David
who understand nature walk close with God. (Edgar
freedom of one person is enough to change the whole world.
we are willing to suppress our self-centered nature so that
our higher spiritual nature can gain control, it will bring
about a resurrection and ascension of the transformed self,
which can create heaven on Earth. (Dr.
our goal is to leave Earth and go to heaven, our greatest
goal is to leave heaven and bring heaven to Earth. (Anne
spirit creation can be compared to a sharp, brilliant photograph,
and the physical creation can be compared to its dark negative.
The Earth is only a shadow of the beauty and glory of its
corresponding spirit creation, but it is what we need for
our growth. (Betty
Earth is in the process of domesticating itself. It is never
again going to be as wild a place as it once was. There
will be great wild places, reserves where nature thrives.
Gardening and reserves will be the thing in the future.
planets in our solar system are physical representations
of spirit realms. The physical realm is the third realm
in the hierarchy of spirit realms. It represents three-dimensional
affect each other because we are all part of each other.
We affect all parts of creation because all parts of creation
interweave and interrelate with all other parts. (Dr.
6. Earth and Its Divinity
is God exploring Self through every way imaginable, including
through every one of us. It is about Pure Consciousness
entering into the experience of life. (Mellen-Thomas
is aware of every leaf that falls. (Mellen-Thomas
on Earth, including consciousness, is living light energy
existing as a wave and/or particle. Everything is made from
the light of God and everything is very intelligent. (Mellen-Thomas
Pattern is life itself, light, time and space, the energy
of all matter, the heart of all that matters, the very essence
of all being which emanates from the Source behind the sun
which moves in perfect harmony with the entire universe.
Earth is a living system that recycles itself endlessly.
It comes from an unending stream of life, going back to
the Big Bang. (Mellen-Thomas
tries out different shapes on Earth and then returns from
where it came. (John
7. Earth as the Matrix
above the Earth, is a cosmic axis of rainbow light that
is connected like a matrix all around the Earth which can
only be seen in spirit. (Plato's
invisible matrix exists around the Earth. This matrix is
a sacred circle of human souls that exists within everyone.
The Earth is a great created being and we are the part of
it that is aware of itself. (Mellen-Thomas
Pattern is knotted light - a matrix that connects two structures
and is literally the language between two different structures.
The light continues around the Earth until it reconnects
with Itself and forms a continuum, the Pattern. (Lynnclaire
network or grid of light and love exists on Earth that connects
everyone's Higher Self through love to each other and to
beings of light. (Linda
tremendous web of light connects all the planets together.
These streams of light energy continuously pulsate back
and forth between planets. The Earth absorbs invisible streams
of light energy that originates from other planets. (Margaret
is united by a transparent net, or web, and each thread
shines with great radiance. Everything pulses with the same
luminosity - a magnificent light of unparalleled brilliance.
exists a great spirit environment just above the Earth that
appears to have no boundaries. (David
to some near-death accounts,
scientific inspiration comes to us
from higher sources. Such
inspiration, I believe, led to the creation of the internet.
In the future, I believe the internet will become a physical
representation of this invisible matrix of light that exists
around the Earth. It will someday connect everyone to each
other in ways that we can only imagine today. Spiritual
reality will become virtual reality. (Kevin
on Earth has its purpose. It all fits into a pattern which
will, in the end, work out for justice and good. (Arthur
creation on Earth is imbued with the pattern for its perfect
parts of nature interweave and interrelate with all other
parts. What we do affects all the other parts of nature.
are all divinely connected with everything - the Earth,
the planets, our solar system, our galaxy, etc. (Edgar
center of Earth is on an axis that stretches from the sky
and back to Earth. Around the Earth is a circular hoop,
a classic Native American sacred circle involving four directions.
Earth, the planets, solar systems, and universes are like
cells within the body of God. The body of God is similar
to the human body. When a thought is formed in the mind
of God, it flows easily to the rest of the body and vice
desires and what we do about them sends waves of life resonating
from the Earth to all the afterlife realms. From afterlife
realms, we draw life as well as send it. (Edgar
are globally linked and this makes each of us a part of
a whole entity. (Rev.
8. Earth as the Stairway to Heaven
doors to various afterlife realms must first be unlocked
here on Earth through soul growth. (Edgar
difference between life on Earth and life in the spirit
realm is that the environment in the spirit realm corresponds
to one's internal nature. If, during our lifetime on Earth,
we matured in a spiritually rich and beautiful way, when
we die we will come to dwell in an environment that corresponds
with these qualities. These environments possess a beauty
that is beyond anything seen on Earth. (Nora
we live on Earth, we are building conditions in afterlife
realms at the same time. After death, we enter these afterlife
realms and into the conditions we built. The quality of
our conditions within these realms corresponds to the earthly
knowledge gained and our activities with respect to universal
spiritual laws. Life on Earth is a gradual metamorphosis
and so is our metamorphosis into afterlife realms. As we
grow in stages from infancy to maturity, we likewise grow
into afterlife realms at the same time. We do not go to
heaven. We grow to heaven here on Earth. (Edgar
was as if I had come home. I had come home to the beginning
of not just me but the beginning of all eternity. This is
so hard to explain but it seems so important. The only thing
this compares to in a way is the way it feels when it is
a beautiful warm night and you look up into the clear starry
sky. When you look at the stars, there is an awe of the
glimpse at the beginning of infinite space. It was like
that feeling as I savored my experience. (Grace
our consciousness expands toward the planets and stars after
death, it's no wonder we look at the night sky in awe with
feelings of reverence and maybe even memories. (Rudolf
all our lessons have been learned on Earth, we are free
to choose other realms to explore and learn. (Edgar
we live on Earth, we live simultaneously in various afterlife
realms. Although we are not aware of our presence in other
realms while on Earth, we really are multi-dimensional beings.
we are not active on Earth, such as during deep sleep, meditation,
hypnosis or any other method that creates and altered state
that frees our subconscious mind from its normal physical
constraints, we can explore the afterlife realms. (Edgar
Our soul has actually had experiences
in the afterlife realms that are represented physically
by the planets in our solar system. Our experience in these
realms is an energy that our soul can draw on while on Earth.
During sleep, we enter into these afterlife realms again.
We are truly citizens of the cosmos even as we live on Earth.
9. Earth as Viewed from
Pasarow: I kept pulling up and up and up to a point
where I could observe the whole Earth. This was wonderful!
The Earth was alive and the Earth was singing. It was singing
a single song and in that song everyone had a voice. Every
human being had a very important note to add to this precious
song of the Earth. It was a song of love and every living
being had something to add to the song of Earth. Every one
of these essences was very much connected.
I was seeing it
not like we see normally. I was seeing it both from a macroscopic
(from the point of view of the spaceship) and from a microscopic
vantage point. It was microscopic in that I could see that
an amoeba in the ocean was connected to the song of the
heart of all humanity and that this world was responding
to the song in our hearts in a miraculous, unified, and
beautiful way. I too began too sing. I was so overcome with
joy. It wasn't a song obviously with the mouth. I had no
mouth. I had no body. I simply was. I became a part of that
song and very full of joy that I could have something to
contribute to this sacred beauty of our Earth and of all
people. I became very aware that we as people have a unique
influence on the world even if we are not actively doing
something. We influence this planet by our state of being.
We influence this planet very positively if we are filled
with love and respect for others or negatively if our hearts
are negative. (Reinee
Pasarow -- Watch her video
Carl Jung: It seemed to me
that I was high up in space. Far below I saw the globe of
the Earth, bathed in a gloriously blue light. I saw the
deep blue sea and the continents. Far below my feet lay
Ceylon, and in the distance ahead of me the subcontinent
of India. My field of vision did not include the whole Earth,
but its global shape was plainly distinguishable and its
outlines shone with a silvery gleam through that wonderful
blue light. In many places the globe seemed colored, or
spotted dark green like oxidized silver. Far away to the
left lay a broad expanse - the reddish-yellow desert of
Arabia; it was as though the silver of the Earth had there
assumed a reddish-gold hue. Then came the Red Sea, and far,
far back - as if in the upper left of a map - I could just
make out a bit of the Mediterranean. My gaze was directed
chiefly toward that. Everything else appeared indistinct.
I could also see the snow-covered Himalayas, but in that
direction it was foggy or cloudy. (Carl
Jung, in 1944)
comment about Jung's NDE: After Carl Jung's NDE,
his view of reality changed concerning the Earth. He now
viewed the Earth as an artificially built three-dimensional
world where each person sits by himself in a little box
in that is part of a whole system of boxes. He felt that
he had to convince himself all over again that this box
system was important and this bothered him beyond measure.
He felt that living on Earth is like living in prison.
is unique in that he saw the Earth from a vantage point
of about a thousand miles above it. His incredibly accurate
view of the Earth from outer space was described decades
before astronauts in space first described it. Jung saw
the Earth as representing the mother archetype. Carl Jung,
centered on the archetypes of the collective unconscious.
His NDE was certainly a great influence on the development
of his theory of psychology. (Kevin

death, we can literally travel at the speed of light and
see all of the people on Earth simultaneously in one moment.
We can also see God sending multitudes of angels to Earth
to assist in answering all of the countless, millions of

space, one can see that the Earth vibrates and pulsates,
as though it was a living, breathing entity and not just
some physical mass. Mother Earth is our Divine Mother. But
there are terrible wounds and sores on different parts of
her body, and she is gasping for breath, and calling out
to God and to her children to stop the killing and destruction
and hatefulness. She is dying and praying for all of humans
to help her to heal and regenerate. (Dr.
of creation groans in pain over its separation from God.
Jan Price's NDE, she was led to an overhang on a high cliff
where the view was intensely magnified. She could view the
Earth as though peering into a monitor. She was told that
no one spends a lot of time at the lookout but some occasionally
stop by to see what's happening on Earth. (Jan
death, we can choose to observe people on Earth to see how
they deal with situations. Our behavior on Earth provides
a teaching ground for those in spirit. (Betty
the vantage point of the spirit world, there is no problem
or disharmony on Earth that will not be corrected. (Margaret
sometimes are aware of seeing the entirety of the Earth's
evolution and history, from the beginning to the end of
Dannion Brinkley's NDE, he watched his wife and friend try
to revive his dead body. He could see their auras and the
aura of a large plant nearby. While this was happening,
Dannion noticed an unusual phenomenon. Before his wife and
friend would say something to each other, their auras would
first join together. At the same time, Dannion noticed that
the plant's aura would also join with them. It was as if
the plant was connecting with their thoughts. Ever since
this experience, Dannion viewed plants differently. (Dannion
level of hell exists right here on Earth where the souls
of extreme drug addicts, alcoholics and sexual deviants
attempt to satisfy their desires by haunting living drug
addicts, alcoholics and sexual deviants. However, it is
impossible for such earthbound souls to satisfy their cravings
which were developed on Earth and which grew well beyond
the physical. Earthbound souls remain around the Earth until
they learn to accept the greater power around them and let
go of the Earth and its desires. (Dr.
10. Earth as the Animal Planet
human race originated on Earth when souls, longing to feel
the beauty of the seas, the winds, the forest, the flowers,
mixed with them and expressed themselves through them. Souls
then mingled with and possessed the bodies of a particular
species of ape-man. This eventually resulted in souls becoming
entangled in flesh; thus, the human race was born. (Edgar

of a Being of Light, some people are initially greeted by
an animal(s) during their NDE. Most often it is a beloved
pet. But there are many non-pets that are initial greeters,
such as horses, lions, or even chickens. These animals come
as guides or to deliver a message. (Dr.
Price has a NDE and is initially greeted by her beloved
dog, Maggi, who died about a month before. Jan discovers
that she can communicate telepathically with Maggi and feel
her love. Maggi appeared as she did in life only younger
and more vital. Maggie taught Jan how to create forms out
of energy by pressing with the mind. Maggi led Jan to where
she lived, which was mostly patterned by the homes she used
to live in with Jan. Maggi held these images in her mind,
pressed, and created a beautiful place of residence. Without
spoken words they shared memories and deep feelings. (Jan

have no respect or love for God. (Beth
