After exploring metaphysics most of my adult life, I’ve come to the conclusion we are all multidimensional beings who are directly connected to other aspects of our totality. Some of our aspects live in different realms of reality, while others live on the earth. Each is separate, yet we are superconsciously linked and are influencing each other.
I realize this is a difficult concept for people to accept and deal with, but I contend there is value in finding all you can about your totality. The others living on earth, I call parallel lives.” Seth, in the Jane Robert’s books, called them “separate selves.”
I have previous written about one of my parallels named Ed Morell who carved an infamous notch in California history early in the last century. When Morell died, I was 11 years old (so he was not a past life). Yet I have his memories as I have proven in numerous psychic transference sessions directed by other hypnotists and reported by Alan Weisman (author of several books and a reporter for the “Los Angeles Times.”)
While recently reviewing the chapter on Navajo artist/shaman David Paladin in my book, “You Were Born Again To Be Together,” I was reminded of something I had long forgotten about parallel-lives. I studied informally with David during the time I was writing the book, and often conducted weekly taped interviews. David channeled Russian artist Wassily Kandinsky, who died in 1944. People often compared David’s paintings to Kandinsky’s paintings.
When channeling Kandi, the irises of David’s eyes would turn black, and he spoke with a thick Russian accent. While discussing parallel lives with Kandi, I asked, “If I am only one identity of a joint exploration, can you give me an example of another person who is also part of that exploration?”
“Are you familiar with the Swiss sculptor and painter Alberto Giacometti?” Kandi asked.
“No,” I said.
“Oh, yes you are, you simply do not consciously realize it. In your own paintings, the constant use of the sun as a symbol and your bright colors are related to your lineage of ancient Mexican lifetimes, but the figures you use and the way you use circular form against form is due to the unconscious influence and contact with Giacometti. You influence others in the same way.”
I looked up Giacometti in art books at the time, but had forgotten all about it. So this week an online Google search resulted in my viewing the artist’s work in museums all over the world. And I was shocked at the similarity of the figures in my paintings, and the use of negative space and form against form, was uncanny.
Today, as I write my memories, I look around my office/studio, filled with statuary (Buddha, Archangel Uriel, King Robert the Bruce of Scotland) photos (my wife and family, heroes like Hank Williams) and bookcases filled with ideas that formed my philosophy (metaphysics and the settling of the American West). And I wonder about the reason I have such an affinity with everything I can see from where I sit.
