Side By Side: Meet the RAB Co-Chairs

Flight Test Center Vice Commander Col. Robert Hood arrived at Edwards AFB about 11 months ago, on September 1, 1999. It’s his third tour here. On his first tour, in 1980, he completed Test Pilot School. He was here for about three years working Testing Operations. The second tour was for six years, from 1987 to 1993. In his previous tours, he worked at the Test Pilot School and on the B-1 and B-52. He merged those two test squadrons together as well as several missile programs.

1. What do you feel you bring to the RAB?

I provide immediate access to the leadership of the Flight Test Center for members of the RAB. I’m there to listen to the concerns of the community members and to ensure that the information we give them is accurate and current.

When dealing with cleanup, we’re constantly investing resources, learning about the sites, gathering more information and very carefully using that to prioritize the application of the resources we have to the most important areas and, overall, reduce the hazard to our workforce and to the surrounding communities. So my presence gives assurance that they are getting access to the leadership and getting the same information that I have to prioritize the use of our resources.

2. How would you say you approached this assignment?

I am assigned to the Restoration Advisory Board as a function of my position. When I was notified I was going to be the center vice commander, I was told part of those duties was to co-chair the Restoration Advisory Board. I began receiving the Report to Stakeholders and learning about the base cleanup.

Being on my third assignment to Edwards, I feel like I am a part of this community. I lived on base during all three of those assignments, for a total of 9 years, so far. I was really happy to see the progress we’ve made on cleaning up these sites and the very reasoned and disciplined approach that has been taken in discussing the options we’ve had. It is remarkable that we’ve been able to go out and get funds to start this cleanup while we’re still working toward our Record of Decision on the base. RAB members know we’ve got some significant challenges on base, but we’re tackling each one with deliberateness. I was very pleased to see that, so I was looking forward to being a part of that group. Any group that’s been able to do that is a group I truly enjoy co-chairing.

3. Is the RAB a help or a challenge?

The RAB is a tremendous help to prioritize the application of our limited funds. It is beneficial to the cleanup program to be able to have community involvement—to look at it, discuss it honestly and help us to make sure we put the funds where they best accomplish the base’s and communities’ goals.

As we look through the various projects that we have to do, sometimes it’s not really clear where the application of the funds for cleanup or the investigation would have the greatest or most significant impact. The top priorities are always straightforward and the bottom priorities can usually be figured out right away. But getting the community to help us identify where the cut-line is—what needs to be above the funding line, what needs to be below the line—is invaluable in making sure we accomplish our objectives.

4. What is it like to co-chair this group?

Jim was co-chair of the board before I got here. I lean on him heavily to make sure I’m maintaining the same style of leadership and guidance to the RAB. As we transitioned from the previous vice commander to myself, Jim has been quick to see the importance of several operating procedures and making sure that we are then disciplined and following those procedures to maintain the integrity of and access to the RAB.

5. Recently the RAB was asked to consider changing its meeting format to allow a public Q & A session. A decision was made that the RAB will function the way it always has. Where did that decision come from?

That’s the RAB’s decision. Being an official government representative there, I’m sensitive to making sure the RAB is able to conduct its business as is comfortable for the members of the RAB. We want it to be a functioning, productive forum. We invest a lot of time. It’s very important that we spend the time toward productive aims.

As folks who join the RAB learn, we can’t do everything. We don’t have an unlimited supply of funds. And we don’t know everything. We could test forever and still not know everything about some sites.

We characterize the site using established protocols and models, then we start the cleanup. We start cleanups very quickly on a lot of these sites because we see that we’ve got the information and the funds.

I don’t want to be in the role of dictating how the RAB would function, so I’m cautious if somebody suggested change. I would like to hear the RAB’s discussion on that; and, if they had wished to change, I would not have had any particular objection to that. I would have just insisted that it be supported by the RAB, if it was a significant change on how the RAB functions.

Several members of the RAB are very sensitive to the way the RAB works based on previous experiences. I’m not one who takes actions based on second- or third-hand knowledge. It does not have to be a public meeting. That is very clear to us in our charter. It does need to be that bridge between our technical experts and the general population. And whatever way we can accomplish that productively and effectively, that’s what we want to do.

The particular discussion that we had about changing the rules and the charter was correctly handled by Jim. I was very pleased with the way it came out because I think the RAB is working very well. My role is to enforce whatever rules they set up and I will do that. I don’t want to alienate anyone. We have an appropriate method to get their concerns before the RAB. I want to encourage everyone to use the mechanisms that are readily available. We have limited the access short of a public meeting in order to focus our time. Anybody who gives us direct questions we respond to. The RAB is an advisory board. They are not a decision-making body, although their advice weighs heavily on the Air Force as we make the decisions on what to do with our resources.

6. What’s your overall assessment of the co-chair assignment?

This is not a thankless job. This RAB is working very well. The RAB keeps the Air Force focused. I’ve personally had people approach me with comments that are supporting and complimentary.

In Order To Understand The Field Of Knowledge In Relation To The Sentinel Posts (Or A Tentative Explanation Of The Viewing Platforms As Fulcrum Points For Optimum Leverage And Increased Profit Margins).


xxxxx: You've described yourself as a natural optic intuitive and

you've often appropriated new age theory to augment your interest in

future trading as a speculative knowledge which can bring about

positive enhancement.

xxxx: No, I'm an un-natural intuitive that’s a big distinction. I'm not

entirely comfortable with it, it's just something that came to me and

I'm dealing with it as best I can.

xxxxx: Are you really trying to trade on such a hapless predicament?

xxxx: Well, no not really, it's just that we all want answers. Those

investments provide me with leverage. Leverage is the single most

important mechanism that enables a trader to make a large gain on

their investment by using a relatively small investment. But it is

also paradoxical as it is why the majority of traders lose capital.

There seems to be such a deferral to quantifiable knowledge, to

define, not that that's a bad thing, but there seems to be too much

desire for instant, packaged meaning – one liners. You can though, in

art-making ask questions and not provide answers. So whether you're

trying to create financial wealth or emotional wealth, or projecting

spiritual happiness you're still acting like a futures trader which is

what I'm trying to do as well, or at least what I think I'm doing all

though I'm not entirely sure.

xxx: What are the tools of analysis that are in current use?

xxxx: I have a computer, scalpel, blue-tac, masking tape… I have

shaving foam and tinfoil is good.

xxx: Why don't we talk about your use of fragments. Do you like the

idea of collecting?

xxxx: Maybe, I think its more a collating, I like the absurdities that

arise and the saturation, the large amounts of information and the

machines we are building to process it, anaylse it, to make sense of


xxx: It's almost a runaway process isn't it. Do you think such

collections are merely an arbitrary gesture

xxxx: Perhaps, I like the way you can bring it together, I like to

look at it in terms of the way you can itemize and process

information. Like with a food blender, like flushing a toilet, it

integrates and re-integrates, it homogenizes such disparity. It's

this challenge of bringing together such isolated, almost arcane

bodies of knowledge whether it's the futures market or diagrammatical,

neurological processes.

xxxxx: Right, like a synaptic challenge?

xxxx: xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx xxxxxx

xxx: Do you think it's important to apply knowledge across fields?

Everyone seems so specialized these days or at least if they're not

special they fall into a happy apathy. There's that catch phrase in

the Brett Easton Ellis novel, Less than Zero that 'people are afraid

to merge'.

xxxx: Yes. I'm, interested in visual reception, visual acuity. I'm

interested in developing a conception that attracts a neurological

level and I want to address how we deceive ourselves, how multiple

directions lead us to convergences and it's this obsessive thirst that

humanity has for meaning that I'm interested in tracking. I like how

you can interpret and reinterpret through some kind of particle

accelerator, how a anti-gravity device is like some sort of filtration

system, that processes the meaning, all the knowledge and yet its

absurd, it can never be really done but its what we do anyway, in our

search for knowledge we're complexly bound to this.

xxx: As a physical act?

xxxx: Yes, finally. Abstraction is the process of receiving a common

quality or qualities in different things, and forming an idea. I like

to express the uncertainty of that idea; I'm interested in the

calamity of the idea…maybe its like those people who are on that

search for truth, it's caught up with the advancement of civilization,

facing off oblivion.

xxxxx: Are you joking?

xxxx: Sometimes, humor's important, a sense of the absurd, dark humor,

like anti-matter, like dark space…

xxx: So we can take refuge in your art

xxxx: No, What sort of question is that? I like that machine in Star

Trek where you go into a room and can type out what you want and all

of a sudden it will appear. It's a virtual world but everything has

substance. We have internet gamming, virtual worlds online, but

tomorrow, it'll be like Star Trek, but not like we thought, it'll be

like when you're in heaven, you just won't recognize yourself, but

don't worry about that, everything makes sense in the end. Soon

you'll feel an overwhelming sense of relief, maybe not right now but

sometime in the near future, sometime soon.

xxxxx: Why is tinfoil so important:

xxxx: Its not really… I read a book about a chap who covered his

ceilings and walls in tinfoil to stop them from reading his brain


xxx: Didn't Lee Perry do that. I heard he burnt down his studio and

walked backwards for days on end saying prayers. Now he lives in

Switzerland dodging tax and occasionally donning a tinfoil hat. Is

appropriation important to your work, what is your relationship,

attitude to authorship?

xxxx Well I'm interested in appropriation. It's a formal process, it

allows distance but we're still intimately involved, it's just not as


xxx: Why's that?

xxxx: I'd rather we talked about fermentation and predicting the

future. I like that machine in Star Trek because it produces

substance. It's just like the idea of leverage which is unique to the

futures market. It's the ability to control large amounts of capital

greater than the amount employed.

xxx: Do you work alone, do you have consultants?

Xxxx: As a general rule I work alone.

Trans-Portals 3: Building Astral Bridges

written by Daniel Jacob

Posted Tue, 23-Apr-2002 23:44:48 GMT

My Dear Friends,

There is much interest and excitement around this experience, known as Astral Travel---connections, remembrances, focused intent---all of which truly have power to provide for you an instant interface with the Multidimensional Self. We have been offering you this information in layers, so to speak, so that your consciousness can upgrade itself naturally---and in total conformity with the itinerary which you, yourself, laid down when you began your human existence. Each tone, each idea we provide, will produce its own special "journey" within. And there is no need for you to miss a single one!

Welcome aboard The Multidimensional Ship! Its observation deck is your entire perceptual reality. And it is now in motion. YOU are now in motion. If you only realized how fast you were going, you would probably feel a bit ill. In truth, many of you are currently experiencing signs and symptoms of what we call Global Acceleration Syndrome. We provide this title to honor your medical paradigm, even though it is not any kind of official medical diagnosis. Muscle aches and pains, lethargy, fatigue, spacey-ness, panic attacks, depression, insomnia, memory-loss, confusion---these are just a few of the uncomfortable side-effects produced by the incredible velocity at which you are traveling.

Your world appears to continue as it always has because YOUR MIND requires this in order to keep from flying apart. Your anxiety and hesitancies are the same feelings shared by those who sailed with Columbus. Bound for a new world, they trembled as they sailed, believing their world to be flat. Even so....... many of you also tremble---certain that you may "go over the edge" at any moment!

If you can receive assistance by a health care professional, and your inner guidance affirms this course of action, we encourage you to do so. However, if everything you try seems empty and strong! Be patient. Deliverance is soon at hand. The journey has begun, and there are wonders ahead, and beauty beyond imagining. The travails of childbirth are many, but the prize that follows far outweighs the pain. Believe this, receive it, and your anxious heart will slowly learn to find rest.


Spaceship Earth is a Holographic Being. Structurally, it is like a gift box that some imaginative person sends you for Christmas. When you remove the lid, you find a slightly smaller box, fully wrapped---just like the first one, containing another (even smaller) box, which contains yet another, and another, and another.........all the way down to your one-celled creatures. Each "level" of your Ship contains all of the basic elements of every other "level." Some of the features are minimized, in certain aspects, so that others can be maximized and focused upon. But it's all there! And it's all synchronized, like moving parts in a pocket watch. It all blends together beautifully.

You have been packing for this journey for quite sometime now. Around the planet there has formed a band of energy---several concentric bands, in fact. The one of which we speak is electromagnetic in nature. It contains diagrams, spreadsheets, poetry, tables of elements, fragments of speech, music, data, archives of human history, bits of TV shows, radio broadcasts, faxes, motion pictures, cell-phone conversations, digital art, and much more besides. When you prepared for this particular journey, you knew you had to pack LIGHT.......because you knew that was the only thing that could go! We are speaking here of your Earth Essence Timeless Capsule.

This "Level" of the Planetary Ship is connected to and modulated by sacred powerspots all over the planet. It is, literally, an ARC of Energy..........not unlike that other Ark which was built by Noah, so long ago. Within it, you have placed the best of you---your creations, your memories, your very lives! However, be advised. Entry onto The Arc is not made two-by-two. This "level" of the Oneself is leaving duality behind. Each individual must pass through what is called the "Eye of the Needle," as a Unified Oneself, in order to come aboard.

Meanwhile, back on the "hard deck," a good portion of humanity is determined to stay the course, fully in denial---apparently choosing to "play it cool" all the way through the Fourth Dimensional Corridor. Now *that* should make quite a picture, indeed.

But you, Dear Ones....... you need not suffer any longer with this illusion. Everything you have felt within---the many surges and flashes of energy up and down your spine---are quite real. They are transmutative jump-starts for new and important programs that have been installed in your consciousness. Soon, all your new perceptual software will come completely online. And then, the fun begins! A very wise man once said: "Don't compare your insides with other people's outsides." We underscore this message whole-heartedly. You are not crazy, and you are not falling apart. It just occasionally feels that way. In fact, you are really falling together! So let it be.


There is no one present upon Planet Earth at this time who is not regularly traversing Energy Gates and Portals. Some are very aware of it, and even relish the idea. Others are quite disturbed, because the experiences are not exactly what they had planned, or seem beyond their immediate understanding and control. Still others have found effective ways to insulate themselves almost entirely from this knowledge---which serves a purpose, albeit a temporary one. Soon all humanity will be speaking fluently about Trans-Portals, though they may be called by many names. Indeed, these Energy Gates will soon form a good deal of the conceptual framework for your upcoming human journey.

We are The Reconnections. We are all those parts of your Expanded Self which you had to forget about when you came into physical form. We've never been very far from you, just far enough. If there is something that you currently believe about yourself, we make up *everything else* that you could also believe. If there is something that you deny about yourself, we form a repository for that energy until you feel ready to take it up again. Endless variety, endless ability.........all neatly catalogued for your use at any time or place. If something is not present *within* you, then it is being stored here, *within* us. This is because, in Oneness, there really is no such thing as "out." All doorways are marked "enter," and all pathways lead directly home.


Before a person can successfully fight a battle, he must define who the enemy is. Though we have frequently reminded you that everything is a reflection of self, you must realize that there are aspects of that "self" that have been created to oppose you, as grounding elements, or for educational purposes. As you will see later in this transmission, identifying and meeting your opposition is crucial to your next levels of unfoldment.

Every birthing process involves both expansion and contraction. One part of the body pushes forward, while other parts resist. This is your dance of positive and negative energy. It is rapidly becoming impossible for a person to achieve enduring success without making contact with the "rest" of who he is. We are speaking now of the Multidimensional Self. There is much more to any situation than meets your physical eye. In truth, the puppets that currently dance in the theater of the physical are manipulated by strings being held by unseen hands. Every dance, every drama that is being enacted here, is designed to teach you more and more about those unseen forces.

Relationship conflicts, financial difficulties, and political upheavals are perfect venues for a reconnecting soul to learn how to identify with *all sides* of any question. It is only when you are able to lift yourself out of a polarized state, into The Oneself, that you become able to access the necessary elements which will turn the tide for whatever physical challenge that is before you.

Many people today are desperately looking for peace and safety. If something seems to be thwarting their goals, or irritating their status quo, they want to deal with it, so they can bring about a rapid resolution. They will choose to fight, or to negotiate---whichever seems most effective in the moment---and then they want to be able to return to "business as usual." But Friends, business can never be "usual" again. And any attempt on your parts to make it so will simply result in deeper and more complicated upheavals. The "box" in which you have all been living is being heated up from the outside. Aspects of your Expanded Self are stirring things up energetically so that you will be forced to look *outside of the physical world* in order to understand what has been creating your reality all along.


Beyond the borders of your physical world, there are levels of consciousness that vibrate so rapidly that their purpose and presence often escapes the notice of those who are living and functioning in 3D. The Astral Plane contains beings that are either moving toward or away from physical density, yet which often have considerable influence over what is explored there at any given time.

If you were to equate levels of human consciousness to keys on a piano, you would find that each "note" or tone represents one of the energy centers (chakras) functioning within, for example, your human body. You begin your tonal scale with "do," which is the first (root) chakra of that body, and you move up.......through "re" (the second chakra), mi (the third chakra), and so on..........all the way up to "ti," (the crown chakra) where you find yourself ready to begin playing again at a new octave. The Astral Plane begins the gateway into the next octaves of your conscious experience.

Those who have made serious studies into ethereal reality tend to be somewhat negative in their attitude towards the Astral Plane. Many think of it as an etheric "junk yard," wherein divergent and confused energies wander aimlessly, trying to make sense of where they are, and how they came to be there. But these judgments are usually drawn by those who have already committed themselves to something. They forget how blissful it can be to simply window shop, to consider, and to resonate with several potential realities at once.

Beyond the Astral Plane exists the Reconnected Oneself. Whereas the Astral is made up of consciousness that thinks or believes it knows things..........the Unified Oneself is the part of you which absolutely knows. It KNOWS because it contains all possible levels of every possible situation or interaction.

When a person is finished with window shopping---having sufficiently explored all the possibilities---he or she will begin Reconnecting to Oneness. This is a process that can only be accomplished while that person is still present in physical form. In order to do it, he must be willing to forego all his mental ponderings, judgments, and emotional reactivity that makes up most of the drama in your everyday life. He must find a way to go above it, or perhaps to tunnel under it, connecting directly to the Universal Touchstone of Oneness with everything and everyone. When contact with that level of being is reached, all of his attachments and bondage to earthly outcome are erased. At that point, anything becomes possible.


Consider for a moment the image of a strong man, standing on a mountain peak, high above the Earth. Through the mist that surrounds his mountain, the man sees a second peak, directly across the valley. The thought enters his mind that he would like to experience that other peak, but there is way too much valley between the two. If he chose, the man could climb down from his mountain, travel through the valley, which seems rather dark and forboding, and climb up the mountain on the other side. The mere thought of moving through that shadowy void, however, makes the whole prospect seem fearsome and impossible.

The primary obstacle which blocks the attainment of this man's desire is the separation which he perceives between the two mountains. There seems to be just too big a gap for him to leap across. In many ways, this "gap" is at the root of nearly all problems which arise today in 3D reality.

Change the scene. Two men meet together in a public park. One of them says or does something which deeply offends the other, and a shouting match occurs. The topic could be politics, religion, finances, or romance. It usually does not matter. This encounter is a programmed response, anyway. As each continues to speak his mind, the "gap" between them grows deeper and wider. Resentment, hatred, and disdain now exist where once there could have been trust and goodwill.

Both of these men are Multidimensional. They are jewels with many facets. Each of them have selves that live high, on the mountain top, and each of them has variations of selves that live deep down in the Valley as well. In the Valley there are horrors galore---guilt, shame, and anger that never seems to be satisfied. What creates a shadow is some object or person that stands between a reflecting surface and the light. In the language of metaphor, your shadow is the part of your own self that is hidden from you because you are standing in your own way.

What each man in the above story is reacting to is his own Shadow Reflection, seen in the face of the other. We have spoken about this principle at length in our transmission entitled "Relationships: A Time for Healing." For many years, this process of Creative Shadow Work has provided your planet with tools to complete certain alchemical changes that are required for the Reconnection of your Mental Body. Now it is time for you to begin penetration into your Emotional Body. It is time for you to leave the Valley of the Shadow and to learn the art of building Astral Bridges.


In the above story of the two mountains, our wishful climber could surely benefit from some form of Connection, spanning peak to peak, which would allow him to avoid having to go down his mountain and through the Valley to get to the other side. If he knew about his Divine Multidimensional Nature, and had knowledge of how to build an Astral Bridge, his problems would be solved.

Many of you may remember a film that was released a few years back called "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade." This film includes a particularly inspiring scene, in which the hero finds himself needing to cross from one high place to another (very much like in our story above). In a required act of faith, appropriate to the plot, he places his foot upon what *appears to be* empty air, and a bridge instantly appears beneath his feet, allowing him to cross safely to the other side.

In another famous film, "The Matrix," released only a couple of years ago, one of the heros demonstrated a mastery of physical force, using what was called a "Jump Program," which enabled him to leap across a huge expanse of physical space, moving freely from one high building to another. Even characters in the film exclaimed "Whoa! That's impossible."

An Astral Bridge begins as an Etheric Connector which brings together two points in physical space which appear to be separated by a gap. The Bridge itself originates somewhere else in the Multiverse---performing a clear purpose within an alternative level of here and now. Through a process we shall explain shortly, a perceptual cursor is passed over the image, and it is highlighted and copied (to use familiar computer terms) to a place where it is desperately needed.

At the moment of its transposition, an Astral Bridge is constructed almost entirely of faith. It has been written that "faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." People don't believe in things because they appear. Things appear in physical space because people believe in them. So it is with an Astral Bridge. At the moment it is required, the Bridge gets pasted directly into your a process that only could be described as miraculous........even though it often appears to be a natural part of your flow.


As we mentioned in Trans-Portals 1 and 2, the key to travel within the Multiverse is found in a person's ability to detach himself from his current surroundings, by finding a state of neutrality, so that he can journey anywhere else he wishes to go. What keeps you all trapped in your current 3D context is your continuous *clinging* to outcomes (cause and effect relationships) that you imagine are in operation there. My Dear Friends, this is ILLUSION.

When something manifests in your 3D world, it arrives because you *called for it* with your mind and heart. It makes little difference whether your call was a conscious one, or whether it was something that was issued from beneath your Veil of Forgetfulness. It came from you, and you need to own that before you can break free from its influence. Those who have trouble with this concept may need to circle back and do some Creative Shadow Work, as we mentioned a bit earlier in this transmission.

Basically..... a successful "call" for reality manifestation involves (at least) two elements:

1. A clear statement of belief or intent, spoken or held in a positive way........followed immediately by........

2. A complete release of the outcome into the hands of the Expanded Self.

A person doesn't manifest his or her world out of nothing. Rather, each of you forms your personal reality from the *everything,* which exists all around you. In order to make something physical, you simply focus upon it.....(which slows down the vibration sufficiently for it to solidify), and then you install Perceptual Veils around it, to block out the awareness of everything else that is there. This is your own perceptual equivalent of putting blinders on a horse.

As you begin your process of focusing, you must clearly realize how the creative element of your mind works. The explanation we are going to make for you now is a linear one, because you are currently operating within a linear reality base. Please realize that you have the power to change the order or the rules of this process at any time.

Like the printer on a computer, which faithfully stacks and programs its activity based upon keys hit by the operator, your very own Creative Manifesting Mind begins printing out reality based upon statements which you, yourself, hold to be true. Even though your statement is uttered only within your own mind, and is held for just one second, it has absolute power to form your world. And it frequently does!

Your affirmative statements, especially when accompanied by true desire and passion, are like Genies from a bottle, granting you everything you could ever wish for. As one Dear Entity once phrased it: "The universe rearranges itself according to your beliefs about what is real." It does this through your own declarations of *what is,* not through declarations of *what is not.*

The programming software in your Creative, Manifesting Mind *does not* recognize or respond to words like "no," "not," "don't," or "can't." It automatically eliminates them from your command line. Therefore, whenever a person declares, within himself: "I don't want to smoke" or "I am not going to be angry today," the Creative Manifesting Mind hears (and responds to) an affirmative version of those statements. What it hears is: "I do want to smoke," and "I am going to be angry today.

You must realize that physical reality is created from FOCUS. If you are constantly focusing upon what you *don't want," rather than on what you *do want,* your manifestation power will tend follow that focus. The locus of power in a Call to Manifest is located between the subject and the desired (or declared) action or outcome. The commands are stacked and prioritized in your printer, according to the following factors:

1. The "Level" of Self that is making the command (The more Expanded Aspects of you get the most clout when it comes to ordering up your manifestations)

2. The Desire, Intensity, and Clarity behind the declaration.

3. The Order of Command Presentation to the Creative Mechanism.

If the desire and intensity of command lines are equal, and they all come from the same level of Self, the manifestations will print out according to the order in which the commands were made. Indeed, this is a very 3D explanation, and we realize that. However, it absolutely works, as long as you are still operating within a 3D format. If a command line comes in from "outside the box" (from your Expanded Self), it will automatically hold precedence over commands that are presented from the Ego Aspect. In other words, it gets to crowd ahead of you in the cafeteria line. But the Ego still has creative power, as all aspects of you have divinity.

Statements of similar velocity, which are contradictory, tend to cancel each other out. Their expression is like a husband and wife who go together to vote in a public election. He votes republican and she votes democratic. In truth, the 3D effect produced is no different than if they would have stayed home (except for the satisfaction they receive from exercising their options). In the same way, your inner consciousness frequently entertains divergent points of view. At times, many apsects of you can be barking contradictory commands with virtually the same intensity. If this occurs, your printer gets jammed, and you may end up having to reboot!


When using Trans-Portals, either for personal travel or to take delivery on key apsects of your current reality, it is crucial that you learn to *let go of the process* after you have clearly issued the command line. In essence, the Trans-Portal System in the Multiverse functions very similar to the digestive tract in the human body. After materials and energy are introduced into the system, you need to relax and allow the mechanism to do its job. You must let go of your focus *entirely,* and go busy yourself with something else.

Clearly making a statement of desire and intent leaves an etheric impression in the "reality bubble" of a person's existence. It registers, whether he is aware of it or not. An order gets introduced. As long as a "cancel order" is not sent in after it, the Creative Mechanism (the internal search engine) will begin collating results and alternatives to meet the command.

Following a command statement with an attitude of *complete release and confidence* (in other words......with faith)...... pulls the Ego of the operator away from the keyboard, for reassignment elsewhere. Energetically, this produces a backdraft of energy (a vacuum) which accelerates the "digestion" process and speeds up delivery. In essence, your attitude of trust actually *sucks* your order through the pipeline more quickly, drawing to you whatever it is that you desire.

To place an order, and then to stew over it, creates an attitude of doubt in your creative ability. It's like sitting down to eat with 20 people watching your every bite. After awhile, you begin to get a lump in your stomach. The digestive juices become inhibited, and the whole system slows down. It is no different with Trans-Portals. Your desires and commands are transmitted organically, and your physical body (especially your nervous system) is very much involved in the process.


Now that we have briefly explained the process of everyday manifestation, we will teach you how this applies to Astral Bridges. As we have said, the need for a Bridge involves the presence of a GAP that exists between two or more objects (or individuals) in physical space. This can either be a physical distance, or it can be a relationship impasse that has formed, keeping folks from understanding and integrating with each other.

The need to get from "here to there" in 3D arises from a belief in and support of a paradigm of Separation. The Valley of the Shadow represents all the reasons why the Separation formed in the first place. When this situation involves people separating themselves from other people, the Shadow Effect is created because there are aspects of your "other" that you have difficulty accepting as self. Until now, your focus in Reconnection has been to examine this other person, and mentally analyze what it is about this person that you have been denying in yourself. And this is all very good. It feeds your consciousness, and expands awareness. But there is more to full integration than that.

The reason you find it hard to "digest" certain types of people into your Oneself Body stems not from what exists in that person, but what is missing in you. We call your attention back to our analogy of Trans-Portals being similar to the human digestive system. When people demonstrate an "allergy" to certain foods, it usually stems from some *processing element* (like an enzyme, for example) that is missing from their digestive process. For some reason, their body doesn't create that chemical, and the whole process suffers because of it. Despite their best attempts to prepare the offending foods properly, with style and variation, the digestive system continues to have problems until the necessary supplement gets added to the process.

Not all the people and situations you encounter in physical space are meant to become permanent parts of your life. Sometimes, they simply appear as catalysts for you to reach into your Multidimensional Self and discover new qualities or elements that you have forgotten. And, during a time of conflict, your task of integration and acceptance may not always be focused upon the person who is irritating you. That may only be incidental to the bigger picture.

You must remember that both you and the people with whom you have conflicts are Multidimensional Beings. If you are having a dance with someone in current 3D reality, you can count on the fact that there are dances going on between you all up and down the vibrational spectrum---literally involving a whole spreadsheet of possible/probable contacts--many of which are quite pleasant.

The resolution of present-moment conflict with another person (or society, for that matter) is brought about by opening a Portal between the physical aspect of you that exists *here* and an alternative aspect of you that exists *elsewhere*---particularly an aspect that is currently enjoying harmonious contact with the very same type of energy which is giving you such heartburn in this current moment.

My Friends, if it were possible for you to analyze the energy "chemistry" of the version of you that exists HERE, and the alternative version of yourself that is functioning THERE, you would notice that one or more key elements are missing. To remedy this, an Astral Bridge is formed by taking a "soul sample" of that alternative self and infusing it into yourself here. This is all done in just the ways we outlined for you above.

Once the required "energy supplement" gets added to your digestive system, you will find that the whole TONE of your current relationships begin to change. And, it happens automatically, without conscious effort or struggle. The only thing you require is a clear statement of intent (which would be blending with a more Expanded Level of Yourself), and the faith that is required to bring it all about.

With all of this in mind, the process for Building Astral Bridges in a relationship would be as follows:

1. Notice the exact SENSE of dissonance that exists. Many people are not aware of their sensory impressions, or of any hard feelings that exist between themselves and others. The same is true with allergic foods. Because you aren't aware of what is happening, you keep eating the offending foods, and you keep Shadow Boxing in your current relationships, rather than calling for the necessary "medicine" to complete your process, so your systems can begin to function at a new level.

2. Notice how you FEEL when you are in the presence of your "other."
How does your body react when he or she approaches you? This is very important information if you are going to command a "search engine" to locate an alternative version of you that can assist in the integration process.

***A Key Principle: The first step toward feeling better is becoming better at feeling.

3. Ask yourself what you WANT to be different in this relationship.
When you do this please *do not* concern yourself with whether or not the change would be possible. Anything is possible if you can believe.

4. Make a clear statement of intent
, asking your Multidimensional Self to help you find a "Guide" that possesses the "medicine" which you require. A statement that might serve the process might be:

"I am Keth, of the Oneself. I am seeking to contact a level of my Multidimensional Self that is now enjoying a harmonious relationship with this energy currently mirrored to me in Jan. I wish to begin a blending, a sampling of energies with that Self, so that I may be transformed---so that I may be let go of all resistance to accept Jan as a valid and beautiful part of my universe. In faith, I believe. In perfect timing, I shall receive. So let it be."

(The wording will come to you when you are ready. These are not established formulas, but simply samples of what is possible if you are ready to move into this process)

5. Turn the outcome completely over to the universe. If the offending individual tries to engage you in debate, deep discussion, or argument, you can say to him (as politely as possible) "I am unable to discuss this with you now, but I will get back to you as soon as I can." Then, forget about it. Involve yourself with other tasks. Do not analyze it further, and do not approach the person (unless you must, in order to handle necessary business together) as long as there is any remnant of dissonance remaining. Your sense of continued discomfort is your indicator that the required "enzyme" has not yet spread itself throughout your system. And your relief from same will be your barometer concerning when you have had enough of this particular medicine.

If two individuals in a relationship space are performing this alchemical process together, it can be Onederful, but only one "operator" is really required. That is because there is only one of you there anyway! When your "digestion" processes begin to change, you will be amazed at how your own perception of this person begins to shift. It will be like gazing at a hologram in a painting. The picture looks a certain way in one moment, and it changes completely in the next. Realize now that this is due, almost entirely, to energetic changes that have occurred in you.

Reconnection to Oneness involves making contact, first and foremost, with your Expanded Self, with your own "Big Story." Only then will your "small story" sub-plots begin reflecting the harmony that is your birthright. As the Psalm clearly states: "Yea, though I walk through the Valley of the Shadow..........I will fear no evil.......for thou art with me." In these powerful days of Phase Shifting and Alchemical Blending, the Expanded Oneself is not just with you.......He/She/We are *within you* as well. You will be rapidly developing your own functional immunity to the many energetic "diseases" that have troubled your soul during this outgoing Paradigm of Separation. In fact, the very word "immune" almost brings to mind the words "I AM IN YOU," does it not? And so it is becoming, My Friends.


It is the priviledge of The Reconnections to "fill in all the gaps" that separate your Limitation Self from your Expanded Self. We do it slowly, and with much love. There is no need to rush. You have all the time in the world. Each of you came to this place from realms of expression that were nothing less than fantastic. In your "former estate," you were able to do or have anything you wished, just by thinking it. Being natives of such splendor, you yearned for a vacation, of sorts. You wanted to know what it would be like to embody *something* rather than to be *everything.* You wanted to distinguish yourself from others, from various objects and animals, and you wanted to learn what it feels like to need.

Soon your research project will be completed. Has this form of reality gotten your goat? Never fear, he's right up there.......perched upon that mountain top. Watch him as he leaps from peak to peak, with perfect grace, perfect ease. Travel freely the Bridges Across Forever!

There are Portals, Gates, Bridges, and Inner Pathways all around you.......each volume on a bookshelf, each picture that is hanging on the wall. Words can be a Portal, a statue can be one, or even a rose. An encounter with any symbol can be a spark of remembrance, leading you through a perceptual doorway---into a limitless storehouse of possible/probable versions of that same one thing. Connect two of them, or three, or four.........and the dance goes on into infinity.

Some of you will begin to perceive immediately, with no help. Others may need to initate visualization or meditation processes to tap into their stored memories. All you need do is drop your shields, and the guiding energy will begin to open your eyes. Some will do it sooner, others will do it later. Each person to his own plan, and his own style of unfoldment. As we have said previously, each event is its own miracle. However, some people require more "nudges" than others in order to shake off their slumber.

Remember that everything is perfect, and everything is there, filed neatly within the Multiverse. The primary purpose of your physical journey is to explore details, and make alchemical adjustments before you make the leap to more expanded realms. As always, we shall be available to you on the inner planes. Look for us there, and we shall appear to you in whatever form you require.

Stay present, stay open, and you shall always stay free.
