Hi Folks! So today’s conversation with Erik is in reference to this post: (http://psychicintraining.com/2013/07/26/pinky/) describing a conversation with a new-to-me being who I nick-named Pinky.
So Erik, what’d you think of Pinky?
She’s cute! Kind of like a little punk-rock / mother earth mix alien. (Punk rock because of her bright pink colour, which is how I perceived her.)
Have you talked with Pinky’s species / people before?
Not with her, directly – that connection is all you. But yeah, I can see them all.
Well, (he wrinkles his forehead, pinches his forehead a little bit with this angry-ish look of concentration, pauses for a moment)
It’s like it depends on where you draw the circle. If you want, you can count the number of (peoples / species) by how many different planets they live on – and some of them actually don’t need to *live* on a planet. That’s just one way to being.
No- TO being, incarnation is a route TO being, and BEING is the whole of you, you as an individual, you without time, you without separation from anything in the universe, you get me?
Yeah, I get that.
So, it’s kind of hard for me to give you a straight answer on the “how many” thing, because it depends on who you count. And YEAH balls of light can be life forms. But try telling that to someone who might not consider an insect (as a conscious being.)
You know (what species is really cool)? COCKROACHES!
Aww, dude, obviously you haven’t had to live with an infestation. It’s not cool if they’re in your bed. But I do get that ONE AT A TIME, they’re rather cute beetles. I like their little waving antennae… just not in my cupboard.
Erik responds by showing me the infestation in one of my former Toronto homes, and then flashes me a tall building packed with people, comparing it to a termite mound – reminding me that at least roaches don’t eat your actual house.
Yeah, I guess termites are more of a southern US thing, eh?
Yeah, well thanks to the warming climate, they’ll be in Canada in the next 20 years (shows me they already are, but not in great enough numbers to be considered a problem. )
Okay, now Erik’s playing a game called “Gross Kate Out” where he’s showing me images upon images of layered pest animals, like roaches getting bigger and rats eating roaches. A few spiders – this scene from the movie Arachnophobia that I managed to decide was funny. This is the neat thing about Erik – I’m sure he could fill my head with images that would *actually* keep me awake at night, but instead he treads the “pain in the ass” route showing me things that are gross, but not nightmarish. He’s keeping the trust but pushing it whenever he can, which is pretty much trademark Erik.
So what do you think is so cool about roaches, in the context of the alien species topic?
WHY DO YOU THINK ROACHES CAN SURVIVE EVERYTHING!?!
They breed quickly and are supremely adaptable?
AND they are SMART. This is something a lot of people don’t give credit to insects: intelligence as WE define intelligence. If we (humans) are gonna get smart about talking to off-earth species like Pinky, shouldn’t we take a closer look at the fuckin’ cool pieces of work right on earth? ‘Cause this stuff is gonna help us to understand (the nature of consciousness, how intelligence / awareness / life experience is different from our human experience but not inferior.)
It’s that respect – when you’ve got respect for roaches, maybe you can come back ‘round to having respect for human beings.
I heard the word “predators” as you were saying that last bit, what does that mean?
Well, a lot of people going through this (bunny ears quote marks) “SPIRITUAL EVOLUTION” or whatever you wanna call it, it’s easy to get hung up on humans who are just assholes. And yeah, some people just incarnate to be assholes, and that’s their job, whether they have an agreement (with victims / the planet etc) or not (it’s just an experience for the expansion of their own energy pattern). It’s seeing the DARK in the light, you get me? (he reminds me of my own past life recall)
Okay, so that last bit from Erik needs this context: In my own study to understand my individual soul history, there’s good stuff and there’s bad stuff, like there is for us all. You can have a beautiful soul and have more than one past-life doing “terrible” things.
While I have beautiful past life memories, there are terrible ones too, and one that Erik was referring to was the recall of being a medieval torturer. Now, I hope you folks understand this is not something I share lightly; this is not a past life recall you tell at dinner parties. No, I have really vivid, visceral – sounds, smells, tastes, and the emotional experience of being this person who, among other things, pulled teeth out of people to try and force them to renounce their religion.
You can look at this lifetime just in the context of that ONE life and say that soul deserves to burn in hell forever, because this person was cruel to others pretty much his whole life, and experienced NO empathy or remorse, even as he died.
However, in the context of the life cycles that make up my consciousness in this moment of time, that lifetime had its purpose. It also explained why, when I was a child and getting my permanent teeth, I had doubles and triples of the same adult teeth come in, and for several years I was required to go to the dentist for regular extractions. This dentist was old-school and still used re-usable needles and anesthetic which did NOT work. I held on to anger for years towards my mother who just sat in the waiting room listening to her child scream… but I understand now that I needed that experience as a child to begin to integrate the “karma” I accumulated in past life experiences.
What Erik was referring to was this past life experience of being a horrible person who inflicted pain on others, in the context of the expansion of my consciousness into THIS period of time, this lifetime, where I incorporated a neutralizing experience.
What I understand his meaning to be is that if you take any one thing out of context, and just ONE lifetime IS taking something out of context, it’s difficult to wrap your limited, intellectual intelligence around the meaning and purpose of shitty shit that happens.
(Erik nods in agreement.) So yeah, you don’t want predators and criminals running around in the streets. Don’t lose your fuckin’ minds here people, I’m not sayin’ we shouldn’t have laws and cops and all that shit, (tangent rant on wasting police resources on pot-busting). What I’m sayin’ is if you’re hung up on the Shitty Shit, (grin and nod – he likes that summary of the crap that goes down on this planet, which will from now on be referred to as “shitty shit”.) – if you get hung up on the Shitty Shit, it’s because you can’t see the whole purpose, and that’s just fine.
So you look at a bug, like a roach: you don’t understand what that roach is all about, do you? Do you know the soul history of a cockroach? Do you really? See cause it’s not always as simple as (a soul group, a species oversoul) because there’s exceptions.
Sometimes, inside a roach is a consciousness that used to be a human being – and maybe that dude really liked bugs and wanted to LIVE AS A BUG just to see what it’s like. Because they REALLY ARE FUCKIN’ COOL especially if you LIVE as a bug. (Shows me crawling on walls, garbage being amazingly yummy, the feeling of wealth in a dumpster, the adventure of travelling in apartment walls, the quick surprise of getting eaten by a larger bug.)
See, that’s the thing when people get hung up on labels and shit. I DO my best to explain here, but you (everyone) gotta understand that there’s always exceptions to every little thing, you gotta leave that door in your mind open a crack.
So anyways, (he says “anyways” with a smirk because he knows it’s wrong and my inner control-freak wants to edit it) if you’re super-interested in beings like Pinky and Plink-Plunk, just remember there’s a fuckin’ REASON that THEY are so interested in YOU. Cause guess what? YOU’RE THE COCKROACH! And it’s cool BEING a bug, I’m not trying to freak anyone out, cause humans are not inferior to other (alien) species any more than roaches are inferior to us.
You can decide that roaches are inferior, but just understand that the judgment is all about context, and the cool thing about this point in (human understanding) is that we’ve moved BEYOND pulling teeth for religion… mostly. Do you think all this shit that we’re doing (on planet earth) to the planet and to each other is gonna go on the way it is for another 500 years? Nuh-uh, it can’t, it’s fuckin’ obvious. Of course not. So what are we (humans) gonna look like in 500 years? C’mon and stick your head into the future, and have a look. It’s really cool.
I’ll tell you one thing for sure – in 500 years, there will STILL be roaches!
Erik, this has got to be one of the weirder entries we’ve written together.
(laughs) Just tryin’ to keep it WEIRD!
