VOICES from the OTHER SIDE:
SPIRITS and GHOSTS AMONGST US
BY: LOUIS CHARLES
Many today are afraid of communication from “the other side.” First, let me say there is no devil or “Satan” to fear, for the devil (or Satan) is the ego: the fallen, mis-thinking mind of man turned against itself by the person who chooses to live life outwardly by following their environment, emotions, and five senses, rather than listening to the inward leading of truth: the spirit speaking within. The soul or heart of man is where the voice of spirit gently speaks to the man as a knowing of wisdom from within; and consequently produces love, peace and joy “Demons” are nothing more than strongholds or “fears” in our mind which must be torn down for us to be released from the bondage of being led outwardly. There is nothing to fear but myself; for only I can attack me.
“Spirits” (some call them ghosts when they are discerned spiritually or physically) on the other hand, are simply people without their physical body, yet are still alive for the spirit is eternal. The term “good and evil spirits” simply speaks of the condition of the mind of the person on the other side, whether fallen or ascended (enlightened). Spirits are messengers, for they speak their messages to our intellects. Their messages come in the form of thoughts. Both fallen and enlightened may speak, but the mental state of the messenger will determine the validity of the message with regard to the amount of truth contained within. A spirit may only speak the truth he knows, and nothing more. Many spirits try and help us, but the degree of help they can provide is determined by their own state of mind and condition of soul. I believe the Old Testament saints such as Abraham, Moses and Elijah heard these messengers and thought God to be speaking to them. From these messages their errant beliefs were of a God who both murdered and loved. What resulted was a law created by man (Law of Moses) to try and bring harmony, but it was a law that did not produce any freedom at all. The messengers that spoke in that day to the patriarchs simply did not understand the eternal, Divine truth within all, but only understood the development of mind or intellect (Don’t do this. Don’t do that. Call it Law or legalism). The messengers knew if someone put their own self into prison by thinking incorrectly (sin), there was a self-imposed price to be paid before the mis-thinking was done away with in the mind. Hence, the mind or intellect could ascend unto peace and joy, but the relationship with God was not developed. Therefore, Jesus was an example of enlightenment with the truth of communication with his heavenly Father (enlightened spirit) with which he heard from within his inner being. In other words, eternal truth could be known from listening within to the spirit that speaks. The fruits of his journey within would be love, peace, joy and wisdom. Jesus showed mankind that all of us had been given the ability to manifest the Divine that was already within us. Listen to the soul, and the ego could be put in check, as well. Your soul or spirit is who you really are, and is a part of the whole Spirit. For God is this Spirit and Spirit is energy; and God’s energy is the wisdom and love I speak of.
The messengers or “angels” speaking today are ascending with the knowledge of this truth and are bringing the whole unto relationship with Spirit. Jesus spoke of these messengers around us speaking with the task of assisting the ascension of the whole, when he declared to Nathanael, “You shall see angels ascending and descending upon the son of man (mankind).” This is the ladder Jacob saw extend from the “house of God” (you), unto the heavens, the higher place of Spirit and spirits (Jacob saw these angels communicating to man what they thought to be true of God and His kingdom). I believe weakened spirits on the other side can receive truth from us as well, while ascended messengers in spirit (call them angels, spirits) often descend and speak messages in order to awaken and guide us and weakened spirits. These enlightened, ascended spirits “descend” to us and lesser spirits than themselves, in order to speak truth that will lead all to freedom. Therefore, we are “surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses,” as spoken of by Paul in the Book of Hebrews. This is why Jesus “descended” to those trapped in their own self-created prison the mind – hell after his physical death, to set captives free of their own mistaken thinking. For what is hell except not knowing Spirit and the truth of who you really are? Jesus freed the minds of those on the other side by speaking messages of truth.
I believe that when a person begins to listen within by seeking spirit, the ascended messengers know it. Furthermore, I believe the condition of a man’s soul to be visible on the other side and cannot be hidden; for it manifests as darkness and not light. Spirits come and speak truth to the lost spirit in order to assist in coming to the knowledge of the truth. Often I have heard messages as thoughts in my own mind and had attributed them as being God speaking to me. They have been clearly produced from somewhere else other than my own mind, for I have received information I was not capable of thinking, even having received foreknowledge. When it has been a message of truth from an ascended messenger – a spirit, I have been able to feel the very presence of spirit within my soul as a witness to its truth.
Jesus spoke to Moses and Elijah at the “Mount of Transfiguration.” Peter, James and John were told they were “seeing the son of man coming into his kingdom.” How did that occur? I believe they saw Jesus’ receiving wisdom and guidance from his spiritual “Fathers,” Moses and Elijah. This openly revealed to the disciples the possibility of the enlightenment of all mankind by the truth which was manifested as light, as well as the mission of assistance in that transformation by enlightened spirits.
