Hello all. Today, we channeled Elizabeth Kubler-Ross for an encore session. (Actually I forgot to ask a few key questions on our initial interview.) And during that time, she suggested something fascinating: Why not have a day when you all submit questions about death, dying and the afterlife for her to answer? She seems to be so excited about the prospects! By the way, she came in with Sir Isaac Newton. Apparently, they’re big buds.
Now, let’s see what Moses has to say about the Middle East conflict.
Me: What do you think about the state of the Middle East conflict? What should be done?
Jamie: He gets very sad when you talk about it.
Moses: It used to be God’s bed.
Jamie (to Moses): The land? The location?
Moses: Yes, the land used to be God’s bed.
Me: Aw, how sweet.
Jamie: It is a very sweet image. It’s very nice.
Moses: Now, it’s being torn by just a handful of people. The world’s understanding of what this place is going through is only driven by a handful of people, and the masses are being ignored. This upsets me so much. I am a man for the people. I fight for community; I fight for the survival of the community, and I will stay in that area—in God’s bed—and continue to fight for the masses who are not heard, who are being driven by the people who have little to no consideration for the value of their country’s life and each individual life. It is my hope that there will be no more war. There are many spirits and beings who have passed on, beings from other places who are coming forth and trying quickly to—
Jamie (to Moses): Can you use another word?
Jamie: Calm. Thank you. I know that one!
Moses: –to calm the disruption there so that nothing occurs that will damage other people’s lives—the safety of other people. There are more innocent lives involved than there are corrupt ones.
Me: Is there anything else we humans can do?
Me: Or should do?
Jamie: Yeah, that’s kind of what Erik was throwing in.
Moses: It is changing the belief that the innocent have no strength. That is what humans need to do—changing the belief that the commoner has no power to make a change—that needs to be shifted. Every person has equal strength, value and voice, and it should be used. But many people choose to pretend to feel safe by not speaking up.
Erik: Well, I hope you’ll be pleased that we’re not playing it safe, because we’re bringing you in to speak!
Jamie (nervously): My heart is racing for some reason.
She breathes heavily.
Me: Is his energy getting too close?
Jamie: No, it’s partly why I’m in a different room, because I have more space. He’s far, probably about 12 feet away. So Erik is pretty much asking if he approves of what we’re doing, and he’s telling Erik that if he didn’t believe in the value of communication this way, he would not have come today.
Me: Okay. Now, do you have any other messages or advice for us?
Jamie looks flushed and uncomfortable.
Me: Are you okay, Jamie?
Jamie: Yes, I should just take a deep breath.
Erik: Breathe, Jamie!
Me: Well, that’s always a good idea! When in doubt, breathe.
Jamie: Yeah, I think I was forgetting to do that for a second.
Me: You need to take a moment?
Jamie: No. Erik was restating the question.
Moses: What I would like to leave behind—what words I would like people to linger on—is this: when accepting—
Jamie (to Moses): Is that any story?
Moses: Yes. When accepting any story, when believing any part of the story, please do not accept it from the source where it came from. Please do not choose to accept it from that one person’s mouth. I am not asking you to be distrustful. I’m asking you to find the root where what you believe in comes from. If you understand the root, then you will understand how the tree grows.
Jamie: Oh, he just stopped. I thought there was more. You know when someone is talking, but it’s over, but it looks like there head is still talking, like a pause?
Me (chuckling): Oh yeah.
Jamie: That’s what happened.
Moses: If you understand the roots, then you will understand how the tree grows, so do not just accept that the tree is beautiful and you like the tree, because the roots could be completely rotten.
Me: So, you’re saying you really want to listen not just with your eyes and ears, but with your heart as well? That’s what Bob Marley told us. Is that part of what you’re saying?
Erik (leaning over to Moses): Do you know Bob Marley?
Me laughing): And does he?
Me: Of course. Oh, I have one more question. I almost forgot this one. What do you think about Kabbalah?
Jamie: He didn’t pause that long. He just kept talking, and I lost track.
Moses: The Kabbalah system supports the spirituality of the soul. It does so in a gentler and more challenging way than other spiritual beliefs do. I am not one to judge how people find their own path. I am one who encourages them to find it in every place they look. The quality I enjoy the most about the Kabbalah is the peacefulness—how it constantly looks back at the soul of the being rather than the external beliefs that need to occur for enlightenment.
Me: Oh, how interesting! I really don’t know anything about it other than the fact that it’s a more ancient form of mysticism with ties to Judaism. Erik, do you have any more questions for Moses before we close?
Erik (still with a hand on Moses shoulder and swiping his hand, palm down, across this throat): No. I’m full.
Erik shakes Moses’ hand cordially, then hugs him.
Me: Aw, hugging Moses! That’s sweet.
Erik (to Moses): Thanks so much for coming today and taking the time to be with us.
Me: Yes, thank you. It was truly an honor.
Jamie: He’s mumbling something to Erik, then he turns to me, he nods his head.
Jamie (to Moses): Thank you. Thank you.
Me: Yes, thank you.
Jamie: He left.
