The Dead: Lifelines @ TMI (Mar 2015)


Lifeline Course Notes
These are my notes from when I took the Lifeline Course at the The Monroe Institute March 2015 in Faber, VA. The course is about focus levels 22-271. It is primarily about what many consider to be the afterlife. This course includes what some call soul-retrievals. These notes start just before I flew out to TMI. I include these to illustrate some of the internal struggles one may go through while trying to adapt to these weird experiences.

I will add that although some might think, gee how cool it would be to do soul-retrievals, reading the following one might begin to see that it is anything but cool.


The Thursday before Leaving (Saturday) for Lifeline:   

I went to focus 12 hoping for explanations.  For a moment I thought Raphael would be there. He’s around so much I just expected he would show up as usual, but in the session he was not there. Looking to something greater, thinking out-loud I wondered whether there was someplace or something I could turn to find true and complete answers. Again, I found nothing. I wondered for an instant if I sensed something there beyond me, but then I also wondered whether I was just talking to myself.

Is it too much to ask, to simply be told plainly the truth of these matters? Is that really too much to ask?  Now, all this seems completely unreal to me – it’s absolutely crazy. Why did I ever sign up to go to TMI next week?  I feel like I am becoming completely lost.  (151 hrs of Hemi-Sync to date)

The Monroe Institute: Lifelines Course

Saturday 3/28/15

During my flight to TMI, and certainly when I arrived there, I had a distinct concern that nothing would happen at all during this seminar; that my doubts would dis-create everything.  Along with that worry I had the disconcerting feeling that I was in the wrong place. Did I do the wrong thing coming to this?


Sunday Morning 3/29/15 – 1st session: Focus 12 Reset

~ 9:00AM (20:37 LST) No EC Shielding. 14.3 protons/cm3. Flares: C3

Sunday morning, I had a bad night’s sleep; I was tired and worried that I had lost my connections. I couldn’t shake the feeling – that nothing would happen; that the trip would prove to be a complete waste – and I would know that.

The first lesson of the day was a re-visit, as they’re call it in TMI course speak. The free flow2, goes to the focus 12 environment. At the resonant tuning portion of the session I tried to draw energy from the two energy conduits that I’ve been given access to; each distinctive powers. At the affirmation state of the preparatory process I simply requested an understanding of my purpose at Lifeline,and then I felt Drago nearby as a untame power moving in the valley. I was uplifted by the awareness of this familiar and great being.

When I got settled to focus 12 I made a desperate plea to who? To the Source of all things? What can one plead to? Immediately, in complete and utter clarity, I heard, “We are with you as before! We will always be with you. You are not separated from us… You are not separated!”

Such a relief I felt, to be back with familiar contacts; the transcendent powerful clarity of Their voice and I was finally filled with rest and release from all my dread and worry.

I called out to Them, “What is my purpose here, at Lifeline”?  “Service…as you know”, was softly replied. And since I had no other questions for them I turned my thoughts and all my energy to the whole campus; to all the people in their CHEK units; extending myself – my field – around the whole facility. I gathered it so that everyone was encompassed in my intention and I invoked support for all the other students: invoking illumination, understandings, and personal answers to all that sought it. Immediately I sensed a great radiant power. And I maintained this one intention for the whole session with absolutely confidence and uninterrupted singular focus.


Sunday Morning 2nd Session – Focus 15 Reset

In this session the lesson was to revisit focus 15. I thought to utilize that environment on dis-creating my negativity and doubts. At the affirmation I stated my intention, to work on this habitual negativity and doubt that I struggle with, but I added that I would also respond to a more important task requested at this time; that I would be willing to comply.

Once I was in focus 15 I began to look for assistance not knowing what direction was deemed best for this time or what to expect. Then something said to me, “Do you wish to first take care of your concerns?”  And so I did; spending some moments dis-creating things I was aware of. After that I waited, wondering whether who had just spoke to me would direct me at this time.

But I saw a dark mountain ridge in the distance as if lit in the background from what I presumed was a sunrise or a sunset. As I studied the image I didn’t know what to make of it but since the image was clear I accepted that I should go with it. Next I found myself seeing a few more peaks, as if from a higher vantage point then I just had. As I looked at the scene I noted a large bird soaring above those peaks. I wondered if it was an eagle, or a hawk. Then I said to myself, you bonehead you don’t know what kind of bird it is, just go with a big bird. Then I noticed this bird was circling out in the distance.

The voice that spoke to me earlier said, “Mount up with wings as an eagle! It is our intention to enable you…”. I considered that I had learned something more about patience as the voiced added, “You will fulfill our purpose. You will also fulfill your purpose. We will gather our brethren. Current man will be removed and new man will be restored to this place”.

Then the session track interrupted with narration for the exit. Once back at C1 I wondered at how the morning has completely change me from one of utter worry and doubt to – everything is ok; that They are here and I am ok.


Sunday Evening –  Focus level 21 Reset

That evening we were introduce to the notion of the pick-code used to assist us with tagging dream events for recall later and/or tagging images as they pass us so that we may return to that memory or image at a later time and address whatever need may arise. We also discussed the use of what is called the LL-Remember, what I call mnemonics, to recall those tagged events. This lesson was mostly about placing those markers along the way to focus level 21.


Sunday Evening – Introduction to focus levels 22 & 23.

~ 7:30PM (6:44 LST) Excellent EC Shielding

This was our first exposure to focus levels beyond 21. For myself it was difficult to get much of an impression of focus 22.  However, focus 23 was quite clear to me. When I arrived in focus 23 I found myself over what appeared as a vast, tranquil and empty space, or sea.

I saw the state clearly as calm ocean free of any swells. It was draped by mists; surroundings draped in fog; extending into the distance. My perspective what that of perhaps 15 feet or so about the water hovering. I waited and observed. Then a large old wooden ship that impressed me as some sort of merchant vessel of the late 19th or early 20th century passed by. I saw the hands on deck going about their tasks and watch the ship pass out of site. Shortly after that, what would be following behind this vessel adrift, I saw a capsized lifeboat and so I tagged it. That image also slowly passed away. Next I saw what appeared as an early 20th century ocean liner cruising very slowly in approach adjacent to me. It too passed out of sight. Lastly I saw a relatively modern cargo vessel; clearly seeing its bridge as it passed by. Following these images it was then time to exit the sesson.


Monday 3/30/15 Morning – 1st Rescue Session to Focus 23

In this lesson we were directed to reacquire one of our LL-Remember tags from the previous session and then to be open to a rescue operation. At the affirmation I only requested that I’d be show how I may be of service and to give me the insight and understanding concerning how I should engage with whatever I may find.

Once in focus 23 I again found myself in a vast and quiet space, a seeming calm ocean. I used my LL-Remember tag to recall the capsized lifeboat I saw in the previous session. Finding the capsized boat, I hovering over it. I thought to first right the capsized boat. Once I did that I had to focus hard to make out the details of the image, to understand what I was looking at. Then I saw a man climbing into the aft section of the boat. As I observed him I saw a second man climbing into the mid-section. Then I saw two men at the stern who appeared to be keeping the boat steady as the first two climbed in. Finally those two men scrambled into the stern of the craft.

The men were very young; dressed in the same clothing which impressed me as some sort of uniform, perhaps late 19th or early 20th century. I had no idea what country they represented. None seemed to be officers I thought. I saw that they appear gravely cold and that they were greatly relieved to be back in the boat.

Recognizing this my first thought was to create a warm sunny day with a heavenly light and I saw all the men immediately appeared to take heart; seeing their spirits were encouraged and lifted. I then created a beam of light draped in clouds shining down from a much great light in the sky. Then I recognized I was visible over them. Looking at myself I was surprise to see that I had on my old jeans and old track shoes.  Next I pointed to the light and called out to them, telling them they may return home to their love ones. The men appeared happy and then joyful as they immediately floated up into the sky. I saw them quite naturally follow along the beam of light that I created; each in utter joy.

I was about to leave, when I felt that I should examine the lifeboat further.  I looked at the boat studying it. It was hard to discern but there was something dark along the side of the boat floating in the water and I realized it was the dead body of one sailor face-down in the water. Descending I reached down and in an instant I lifted the body out the water placing it in the center of the boat.

I looked at the figure and say this very young man looking extremely cold, depressed – as if utterly lost. I called to him saying that there are love ones waiting for him. With a worn look he replied that there is no one that loves him. I was gripped – torn – by what he said as I knew what he felt. My chest ached but I countered that there are those that love him waiting. And I went down to him and taking his hand I lead him up out of the boat. We drifted together slowly upward into the sky. In a brief moment he was traveling up on his own and he appeared to be well; suddenly disappearing.

Next a thought occurred to me: I thought to take the sunbeam and enlarge it that it may serve as a beacon for possibly others and immediately I saw a myriad of individuals drifting up into the sky; this schene extending far into the distance – stream of spirits or souls. These were not rescues. I was seeing the current of souls naturally departing.

As I gazed at of it I also saw numerous angels receiving these souls and found I became emotionally overwhelmed; it was just too much to see. To my surprise I saw Raphael orchestrating or managing parts of the operation. I was completely overwhelmed by the emotion of seeing such a place; far more emotion then one can process. I felt I must leave as my chest ached terribly.

Exiting back to C1 I found myself completely drain, emotionally and physically. Meeting the young man in the lifeboat, though I knew he moved on, I felt his dying thoughts – that no one loved him. This left me in a pained deep sadness.


Monday Late Morning Session: Focus 23-26 Lesson.

The goal of this lesson was to introduce to a few levels beyond focus 23.

At the affirmation I requested understanding of whatever I may find. Then I heard, “We send you God’s strength”, in a commanding voice and as I turned to look I was facing Gabriel. He who stood squarely before me and placing both his hands on my shoulders, He faced me directly. Then with his right hand he a slapped me on my left shoulder as he bid me farewell. Surprised by that, I continued on deeper into the levels peering into the darkness.

The session’s narration guided us thru and then out of focus level 23. I found I stepped through the light that I marked beyond F23 for the sailors earlier. It shone as a path to help me exit 23.  Now however, rather than finding myself in the black ramblings of focus level 24’s vague environment, I suddenly found myself in space above the Earth. I was up high, higher than low Earth orbit. I could see the deep black of clear space, its stars, and below me the Earth cloaked in its atmosphere; as if it was a shell about the Earth. I was outside that looking back down.

I turned and saw the moon in crisp detail. Then I looked back at the Sun, which now I more correctly recognized as a star. It wasn’t the yellow ball I was use to seeing throughout my life3. It had a more pure color quality to it; more white.  As I gazed at this vision I wondered to myself, why are I here … seeing this?  This isn’t the lesson. Promptly and quite clearly someone said to me, “We had something else planned for you”.  Everything was completely clear and the statement was also clear.

I looked down past and beyond the Earth and I saw infinity below my feet. I found I could travel at incredible speed and before I knew how, I did. In an instant I was up and out looking down at an outer arm of the our galaxy; seeing the wonderful light it emitted. As time began to lapse I gave thought to getting back to Earth and in an instant I was back roaming over parts of the Earth looking down at it. I intended well being and healing for the ocean, its sea life, all the animals, the weather systems… but then there was space junk everywhere. So much junk, it completely disgusted me. I thought to impress some of it to reenter the atmosphere and burn up.

I remembered something. I’ve seen this before. I had seen it with the Gatekeeper who extend his arm showing me the Earth suspended in dark space and I wondered what was the meaning of all these experiences. That was during a hike down a nearby trail.

Again I wondered to myself, why am I here? Then clearly something someone said to me, “We thought this would be more fulfilling for you….”. Then I stayed there enjoying the wonder of this; so much wonder. I had completely forgotten that wonder even exists.


Monday Late Afternoon – Free Flow Focus 25

3/30/15 4:00PM Excellent EC Shielding

At my affirmation I stated I was interested in seeing the Belief Territories but I added that I was willing to go wherever was needed; if They want to work on my own beliefs that was fine too.

Heading out to focus levels 24-26 I disregarded the track guidance. I again found myself very high above an ocean. Was this the same area where the lifeboat was I wondered. Looking about I could see a shoreline stretching into the distance. I followed my light path as before over the ocean and up into the sky. This was like following a sunbeam or ray of light upward as I followed the path I had seem the lifeboat souls follow as they went up. Soon I found I emerged from bright white illuminated clouds and had no idea where I was.

As I looked about I saw the balcony of a beautify villa. It struck me as one of those beautiful postcard-like places in the Mediterranean; absolute perfection in the craftsmanship of white plaster and stonework. There were beautiful green plants tracing the borders and railings of multilevel balconies that outlined the buildings fronted along a narrow roadway below me. With the perfect sky of a wonderful sunny day, I began to walk along one balcony of an upper level, looking down at the cobblestone street to my right. I marveled at the absolute perfection of the street structures; beautifully handcrafted, perfection itself.  It was absolute perfection. However, in the mist of this scene I saw that this beautiful town-scape was completely deserted. No one.

I continued walking along the balcony puzzled. Where is everyone? As I wandered down the balcony I noticed a saddled handsome white horse hitched in the street below; yet no one was there to be seen. There were doors along the balcony’s walk on my left as if passing apartments; a sculptured railing along my right, with the small roadway below. I came to a door on my left that took my attention. I was about to pass by, but there was something about that door that held my attention, so I went in.

Inside I found a wonderful apartment with rich looking dark woods, beautiful plaster and stonework. There was a large bright red area rug. I walked across the main room to a large open air stone framed window that had a view of the city. Looking out I saw many villas and homes nestled into the green hillsides; appearing as a small town/condo-grouped. This view was also beautiful and amazing. Yet still, there was no one. I decided to leave and turned around.

As I walked across the main room toward the doorway I noticed a room on my left. It was a bedroom and as I looked in I saw a large bed with an old man laying comfortably on it. I asked the old man resting there where everyone had gone. He told me, “Everyone would say, that if you stayed here you would die, so everyone has left”. I asked him why he stayed. He said, “I like it here. I’ve been here a long time. I don’t want to leave”. Then he looked at me and asked, “Are you an angel”. I explained that I am another messenger and that he may move on from here if he wishes. I told him that there are other beautiful places that are not abandoned and he may leave anytime he desires. He seemed to think about that and said nothing more, so I turned to leave but pause again to remind him, “You may leave anytime you wish”.

As I proceeded to leave him, exiting his apartment I immediately  found myself in darkness and wondered what this was about. Suddenly I remembered, from a previous trip that I observed a man in the Believe Territories and that I had memory-tagged him. Referencing him via the LL-Remember tool I found the man as I had seen him previously.

He was sitting in a simple wood chair wearing dusty drab gray and worn shabby garb. He was hunched forward in the chair with his face in his hands as if looking at the floor in darkness. Around him it was totally black. There was nothing else. He seemed unaware of me.

I created a light illuminating down on him but he appeared to notice nothing. Given the lack of response I turned the illumination into a blinding brilliance of white light and directed it onto him. Slowly he turned his head looking up at me peering through his fingers, covering his eyes as if unaccustomed to any light.

I said to him, “You don’t have to stay here. There is another place where you are not in the dark and you won’t be alone”. But he answered, “No. There is no light. There is only darkness”, and I quickly retorted, “Yet – you are shading your eyes from this light.” The next moment I saw he recognized that he could not dispute this, and then he looked at me as if uncertain.

Immediately two individuals that I cannot describe arrived and they waited on the periphery just beyond his awareness. As the two entities drew closer the man slowly stood up; stiff and frail. The attendants each took him by an arm and the man slowly turned away from his chair, as his steps were carefully guided away. As they walked away about to disappear the man pause and looked back at me over his shoulder, as if unclear as to what had happened. They walked away quietly and disappeared.

When they were gone I found myself in darkness again but now I was in a dim twilight setting. I found myself walking through a dirty burnt-out war zone, or perhaps a city that was burned to the ground. I found I was standing in the ruin and rubble of a building; all was black charred. There was no one and nothing wholesome about the place so I created a beam of light over myself that extended up into the sky and followed the light beam out of there.

From that place I found myself in a black void and I called out, “Well – is there anything good to see here?!” Instantly I found myself walking on a rural country road lined by thick green tall grasses growing on either side and ahead I saw a wonderful cottage just off to the right. It was nestled by lovely trees and other long green grass; green pasture lands all around it. It was a picture perfect country scene.

I walked up to the front door of the cottage and knocked. A man and a woman answered. They were young. Standing in the doorway the man had his arm around the women’s shoulder and she had her arm around his waist. Seeing them standing together it was clear the two were completely in love. I commented I was passing by and saw their beuatiful cottage. The women replied, “Yes. We built it ourselves and we love this place”. I apprehended perfect joy. There was nothing they were in need of and so I said goodbye, turned and left.

The narration began to commenced the exit.  I let myself go drifting downward through the levels until I got to focus 21. I came to rest there for a moment and looking, I saw a small domed stone block house. I recognized this place seemed to naturally appeal to me; as a place of sanctuary – a place to recuperate – so I stayed a bit enjoying its appearance trying to absorb rest. Then I returned.


Monday Night: Trip to Focus 27

In this session I staged to leave focus 12 from my old landing area I used when going to the Lamppost in recent months. The spot is just a ledge abutting darkness. To my surprise I found an Earth dragon4 standing on the ledge next to me. It seemed excited. From there I proceeded to focus 15. The narration lets us pause there for a bit before heading to F21. I noticed behind me that the dragon seemed to begin to follow me into focus 15 but did not continue.  Considering that for a moment the narration next lead me out to focus 21.

When I arriving in F27 I found myself near a beachline of a beautiful; absolutely beautiful. In the near distance I saw two large and elegant sailboats in the bay before me. They were tall and sleek with simple but enormous pure white sails. The craft appeared to have been built but resemble nothing on Earth that I could imagine. The bay was sheltered, encircle by very rocky and high bluffs that came down to the waterline. The scene was absolute tranquility, completely restful; a place where time is of no concern and has no weight.

I realized someone was standing next to me. When I turned to see who it was I found I was with my old roommate B who passed away just some weeks prior. We were standing together, both looking at the scene. It was completely quiet and it seemed there was nothing else that needed to be done. As I looked at my old friend I saw he was smiling and I clearly felt his presence. I asked him, “B is this really you?”  His answer was simple, “I don’t know what I am”. We stood together saying nothing for awhile and then it was time for me to go. I looked forward to returning at my next opportunity.

Returning to F21 I found I was again arrived near the stone dwelling as earlier and so I rested there considering the meaning of this structure. Why am I encountering this I wondered. I began to recognize a cobble stone path that passed the dwelling and proceeded into the distance. As I stood there I became aware of a stone wall, not quite chest height. This flanked the path on my left side leading to the dwelling’s gate and so I stayed, considering the image.


Tuesday AM 1st Session for the Day

In this session I arrived quickly in focus 27. I found myself on higher ground seeing the beautify shoreline and cove below in the distance; the scenic ocean extending out before me to the horizon. We were directed in this lesson to follow the narration but I found it was impossible to leave this particular place. I saw my old friend B again. He appeared detached, completely unaware of me. What I recall happened next was a light-being arrived and hovered above me. I would describe this as an oval-like brightly illuminated cloud. It’s glow was a bright yellowish golden light.

In this light-cloud I could barely make out that something was in it, as the cloud was translucent but too bright to look deeply into. I nickname light-beings such as this one the 27GuideGPS later. This light-being explained to me that B was resting and so I inferred that there would be no contact with B at this time. But concerning that instruction I’m wasn’t sure that I was able to truly understand what that creature related to me. Then as a matter of business it seemed the light-being informed me that it was there for me, and so we drifted away together.

We traveled what seemed to be a short distance and came to a large structure. It appeared to me as an earth-berm feature settled deep in a large grassy knoll. We moved toward the entrance of this facility which appeared as an auditorium or lecture hall-like structure while still having the feel of being a civic center.  As I looked at the entrance I observe there were two massive pillars, one at each end of the entrance. The earth-berm structure was set low in the ground and had an outdoor amphitheater-like surrounding around it.

The grassy slope rose up from the center’s entrance area below us.   As I was examining the structure the light-being said to me, “You will come here when you are to prepare for the time your next phase arrives”. I understood this pertained to the end of my human life and the start of some new purpose. I was able to completely understand what was being referred to as it also appeared I already knew something about this. After being there for some time looking at the structure I left.

When I returned I found it interesting that I felt like I was focus 27 for a long time, compared to the time of the session.


Tuesday 2nd Session

In this exercise we were directed to create a personal place for ourselves in focus 27. This is what TMI called one’s Special Place, but I just call it SP27. The idea is that one conceptually creates a personal home-away-from-home construct for oneself to return to in the F27 environment.

Proceeding from focus level 15 to 21 I stopped to setup my pick-code (mnemonic) for F21. The pick-code, or what I call a mnemonic is a bookmark, so to speak, one creates to assist with identify locales for return. At this time I felt a need to stay in F21 and absorb as much rest as possible. I was feeling more emotionally taxed in these environments by the session. As I stood there resting an old man approaching slowly on the familiar cobble path that was bordered with a mix of lush green grass. He wore a large hood that draped over his face such that I could not see his face. As he passed he said to me, “We have much to discuss later….”, and continued to walk away.  As I watched him head into the distance I wondered what that meant5.

Next I headed into focus 22 and felt a drag as if something clawed at me, or a sort of friction.  I pressed on and found myself looking up and down a pebbled coastline looking out over the sea I originally saw in 23. It looked much the same as I had found it in the past. Here I saw that the long empty shoreline lead on forever in each direction. As I drifted up higher I eventually saw the curvature of the Earth and I again identified the familiar sunbeam of light that I’ve followed before. Soon I found myself above the Earth’s atmosphere looking out into space but here I determined to continue into focus levels 24-26; mentally deciding to not drift into space.

As I enter focus levels 24-26 I became aware of images appearing that fading away. One was an abandoned city, then I saw a door that lead somewhere, next I saw an Indian village of the 18th century I guessed, then something like an Aztec symbol passed by me. Lastly I saw in the distance the skyline of a large city that appeared to be ultra modern. It shown silver-like in the distance gleaming as a tight collection of large skyscrapers that were brightly prominent. As the images passed by I found I emerged in focus 27, again facing the familiar view of the cove and sea that I had encountered previously. There was also my friend B and now we again were able to be together enjoying the peace, beauty, and wonder of the place.

For some reason I began to tell B about the things I had been encountering with my hemi-sync experiences since he had passed.  We had talked about these experiences extensively before he went into hospice months ago. He was fascinated at the time regarding my experiences. Then, wishing to test my own experience, I asked him if there was a way he could validate our encounter; that it was authentic. I asked if he had a message for his sister that I might deliver to her for him but he appeared completely uninterested in his former earthly life and all its involvements. This in itself convinced me that this was truly B.

Looking over my shoulders I saw there was a fantastic mountain range behind us and so I said to B, “Wouldn’t those be something to climb”? I saw a gleam appear in his eye, a hint of happiness & an interest for that moment. This too convinced me that this was in fact B. We had both been climbers in our lives. B did some truly outstanding climbing in his lifetime. Next the narrative instructed me to create a wonder land for ourselves in F27, one’s Special Place. This struck me as being completely immaterial and unimportant. I had no interest in fabricating anything and ignored the narration.

Then a light-being arrived. It appearing again as a glowing cloud or capsule of light in the sky hovering above me. It direct me that it had something to show me and requested that I followed it. I seemed to naturally find myself flying to keep up with this figure. Then we started to ascend and we proceeded to ascended higher still. This continued as the guide led me higher and higher. This went on for a long time. As we continued to go ever higher I wondered what this could possibly mean, but since the experience was so clear I did not question this and continued to focus on following the guide.

After sometime I found we were approaching an immense light above us. I had no idea where we were, or whether we were even in focus level 27 any longer. The light-being stopped. From it I understood that I was suppose to continue upward.

I headed straight upward and came face to face with this immense light as if I could touch it.  It was like staring upward at a huge ceiling of brilliant light that also seemed massive. I paused to look at it and then something I had never known before said to me, “You should know that we love you…. Be at peace, and peace – you may have”.  I appealed to the voice to please speak plainly to me (not wishing to loose any of this content due to some defect of my own understanding that might interfere with this).

Next I was lifted in the light that I was examining and I was engulfed by it. This place was brilliant but I quickly became able to apprehend it. I was in something like a fog of light where I could only see my immediate surroundings. I was definitely standing on a floor and as I looked at it I noticed the floor went on and disappeared in the foggy bright surroundings. I had the sense that wherever this was … it was vast.

Then I detected someone walking toward me out of this bright foggy light. I had the impression that this individual was female but the image of her was lost as she was even more brilliant then the surroundings. All I could observe were her lower legs and feet. The rest of her image was completely lost in her own brilliance.  I did see there was fabric that draped about her feet indicating to me that this being was wearing something and giving the impression that a human-like form was in the light.

Next she spoke to me, “There will be a Great Recovery of the Earth. It is important you know this. This will be a large focus of your purpose. Be undeterred. Be yourself and all will go well. It is important that the Earth be recovered. This is the work of the Master Creators”.  Then she turned away and immediately, the narration interrupted beginning the exit.  The encounter was clear, and I was stupefied with amazement.

Returning, as I approach my landing area in focus 12 I could see my new earth dragon friend pawing anxiously with its feet; eager to go it seemed. I had to smile.

Tuesday: 3rd Morning Session – Focus 27

In this session I left the usual way however, when I entered focus F15 I saw a single row of armored beings – nonEarthly. They stood absolutely still and did not appear to pay any attention to me; simply amazing.  I have never seen anything that resembled this type of armor in any museum or sci-fi flic. I also have never seen any type of metal as that used by these figures. They didn’t alarm me, but it was quite an unexpected site and it was very clear.

Passing on, I drifted upward through F23 as appears to be my practice. I continued to follow the bright sunbeam of light up into the clouds.  To stay on route to F24-F26 I consciously fashioned a visual mnemonic representing a turn, or intersection; one way lead to the Belief Territories, the other way slipped into space. I turned, so to speak, toward F24. I allowed myself to drift through levels F24-F26 without pause. This also felt like rising.

Entering F27 I found myself again looking out from a high vantage point over the coastal region, noting the familiar rocky shoreline, cove, and the view of the sea that stretched into the distance.  I realized my old roommate B was there, or was still there. I walked over to stand next to him on his left. He place his left hand on my right shoulder and together we gazed at the wonder of it all as if there was nothing that required any care. It was completion and perfection. Then the 27guide appeared and I understood it was time for me to follow.

We traversed F27 flying high. After a short time we descended to about 75 feet above what appeared to be a coastal plain extending from the shoreline. I was able to view vistas of other places in F27 from our vantage point.  We traveled for some distance along this coastline and then below I saw something that was quite odd.  I saw the poop deck of what looked to be something like a 17th century sailing vessel stuck in a low hillside.

The front and mid-ship portions of the ship were missing; only the poop deck was present, as if stuck in the ground. For some reason I found this structure to be interesting and thought I should go down and see it. Landing, I walked up to the ship’s ladder and taking one step I paused and thought to call out, “Permission to come aboard?” I heard a loud raspy voice bellow loudly at me, “Eye, Come aBoarrrd!” I climbed up the ladder to the poop deck and saw a large pirate with large black beard, black hat, and a black patch over one eye.

I didn’t know why but I drew closer, curiously to see this figure more clearly.  He took a step toward me. I drew closer yet and he also took another step closer to me.  We got to be face to face about a foot apart staring at each other. Then the pirate leaned forward coming even closer to my face and slowly …. he lifted his eye-patch to reveal a perfectly good eye. Then the pirate began to roar with laughter at me as if enjoying some prank and I realized this was my very close decease friend DV who died about 5 years prior! Appearing to be greatly amused, he continued to roar with laugher and very soon I was laughing too. Both of us laughed and laughed for a long time.

{Note: This experience was interesting because about thirty years prior my friend DV and I met while students at the same university.  I was invited to a Halloween party at DV’s house. He and one of his friends were dressed as pirates having a great time. As they finished each can of beer they would throw the empty at the TV. I should add that if we lived another time in another place I image my friend DV might very well have been a pirate}

We eventually settled down and were able to stop laughing and then we just enjoyed the view.  Then DV paused and apologized explaining he was sorry he left abruptly when we met several months earlier in focus 21.  At that time, he had crossed over to visit me, or was brought to visit me, and he then told me what it was like when he died6. After a few words he left that F21 meeting. At this time he explained that he just had to get back here (to F27).

Then he added, “I gotta thank you for what you did”. I explained no thanks was needed. Then he went on to explained, “I always thought if anyone would make it, it would be you”. I replied, “I don’t know too much about that yet. I’m not sure what I’ve made of any of it”. Then he crushed a beer can in his hand that I just noticed, and flung the can into the corner of the deck again roaring with laughing. “Doesn’t matter if I have a beer or not; no effect. It’s always great”, he said and we both started to roar with laughter again for awhile. We just couldn’t stop laughing.

I asked him about (what Robert Monroe called) the Park and Reception areas. He said, “Yeah all kinds of stuff is going on there but I’m not interested in that”. I asked how’s Hank (DV‘s dog) was and DV said he’s around here somewhere. Then it was time for me to go and we parted.

On the return, passing through F21 I again needed to stop and rest – to recover. Although there is tremendous rest and peace in observing the perfect state of focus 27 for some reason when I come to 21 this feels more like home to me and so I stayed there for awhile.

Tuesday ~ 4:00PM 1st Official Retrieval

This session was our first opportunity to use TMI’s method utilized throughout the course for soul-retrievals.  The procedure is to first go the F27 and acquire a 27guideGPS who presumably knows where a soul-retrieval is needed. The 27guide leads one to a retrieval target.  The goal is to retrieve the individual and assist or allow their migration to the Belief Territories or possibly F27.

In the CHCK unit before the hemi-sync even began there were a number of lights floating with me in the unit.  This was reminiscent of my week during the Gateway Voyage course when my CHCK unit would be astrally or ethereally vivid even before the hemi-sync would start; that lasted the whole week of that course. At this time I knew B would be there to meet me in F27 but I didn’t know why.

In session once I got to F27 I found B at the usual spot, but then I also saw my friend DV lumbering up the grassy slope to where B and I were standing  (DV is a big guy. He also knew my friend B while in the physical). It was clear to me, again for some unknown reason, that they were there intending to help in some manner but I had no idea what this meant.

The guide I had previously met in F27 darted up suddenly and I proceeded to followed it. The guide rocketed downward and I chased after it. I’ve started the practice of migrating through this levels as if diving.  I dove hard and fast in a free-fall trying to keep up with the 27Guide and soon became aware of the light in F23. We entered focus F23 and I saw the guide take a sudden sharp right turn. I verde hard to follow it and found we were high above an ocean; appearing to be a common feature I’ve been encountering there. We descended and flew along a portion of coastline that I had not seen before. I examined the land below wondering where we were going, and then I could not see the guide leading me.

I slowed and descended to just above the beach-line. I headed inland just a bit and began to see a very small quaint stucco home which strongly attracted my attention. I thought to approach the house, so I landed and walked toward the home. The closer I got the greater my sense of alarm became. I wondered apprehensively what I may find in the house. How would I know what to do?

Instinctively I felt the problem was in the tiny attached garage and walked directly to it. I flung the garage door open and thick exhaust billowed out of the garage. Through the smoke I saw the back end of a car. It seemed to be from the late 40s. I rushed in along the driver’s side of the car and immediately opened the driver’s door. Thick exhaust filled the vehicle as well. I couldn’t see anyone, so I climbed in a bit behind the wheel feeling around and found a body laying down on the front seat of the car.

I grabbed the body and pulled a man to a seated position behind the steering wheel. When I got him sitting up he said in a sleepy manner, “Leave me, they won’t take me, and I said, “I’m not leaving you”, and I dragged the man out of the car onto the garage floor. He was incredibly heavy. I began to drag him slowly toward the doorway and asked him his name. He replied in sleepy manner, “Thomas…… Mc..Carthy…” I saw he wore a dark blue jacket that seemed as if it was part of some work apparel or uniform. As I dragged him toward the driveway he was repeating in a sleepy distant manner, “They won’t take me…. Leave… me…”. I shouted back at him, “That’s not true and I am not leaving you”. As I dragged him I suddenly felt a sense of urgency. His dead weight was increasingly difficult to manage. I wondered why he was so heavy?

Once we made it to the driveway, clear of the garage, it became clear to me that he was not going to get up, so I heaved him over my shoulder to carry him finding his weight to be simply unbearable. As I struggled to lifted off from the ground we continued to argue. Then feeling the incredible dead weight of the lift, hardly a dozen feet into the air, I felt the approach of panic. I can’t carry him the whole way I realized. I can’t do it. Then two angels appear and they helped me carry him higher, but for myself it was still a difficult weight to made progress with and even with the two angels I still felt the sense of alarm at his dead weight.

As we ascended through F23 entering the light I could see as if far away my friend B calling out to the man explaining to him that it was true, suicide will not keep him out of heaven7. We continued to struggled with the lift as the argument continued along the way from focus F23 to F27; the man insisting they won’t take him. I was surprised and wondered that we were still carrying him, that he did not travel off to a belief system.

Finally when we got to F27 the man and I tumbled together onto the ground, as it were, as the angels gave their final lift. There my friends DV and B immediately came to the man as he laid on the ground. The man just laid there appearing to not understand where he was or what was happening. I sat on the ground next to him completely exhausted and utterly emotionally spent as I watching my two friends taking care of the man. The two angels hovered nearby.

In a length of time that I could not guess I saw the man was sitting up and he seemed to begin to apprehend where he was. B and DV appeared to have things under control. Soon they had the man standing and they slowly walked away on the grassy slope in F27. I continued to sit there, trying to recover, resting. The two angels also continued to hovered nearby me but I was too tired to give them much thought. Then I saw Raphael approaching but as he got closer I realized it wasn’t Raphael at all. I felt some confusion in my fatigue about the identity of figure that was approaching. When this being got close it paused and said to me, “I am Gabriel. I told you we would send you God’s strength. Well done”. Then he and the two angels left and I was alone.

I sat there stunned for a long time; mortally drained. I felt it must be time to go and so I fell into a free fall to get back to F21. I was largely unaware of the descent and I found myself, as if waking, laying on the cobble path near the dwelling I had been seeing. Did I fall in some manner? I slowly stood up but still felt completely stunned. Shocked by the previous experience I leaned over resting my upper body on the stone wall adjacent to the path feeling the relief of its warmth as I trying to rest. Then someone came up to me and said, “You need to stay here”. So I stayed there trying to regain my composure, some energy, and some sense of peace still feeling completely spent.

Then the old man I had seen previously on the path came along. As I looked at him vaguely, he pulled back his hood and I saw the long gray hair and beard apparently the Gatekeeper I thought. After some time he explained, “You must come back and we will talk”. Eventually I left and exited to C1. I found myself in my CHCK unit exhausted and utterly emotionally spent. My chest hurt terribly.

Tuesday Night Session

Before this session began I still felt considerably drained such that I dreaded another rescue. I didn’t think I could take much more loss of energy. When I enter the session in focus 12 I was very surprised to find part of the angelic guard gifted to me many months prior standing in two rows facing forward and myself standing in the middle between them. I had no idea why they were in this formation.

When I got to focus F27 I found B. I could also see DV. Their expressions were very clear to me as B said, “You can sit this one out if you want”. DV agreed. That seemed like a good idea to me as well. Then B said, “We’d like to show you something”, and so I walked with them down the grassy knoll. But as we walked I noticed I was losing my perception. Things I could detect earlier were confused and then everything seemed to darken.

In a few moments I said to my friends, “I think I’m gonna go”. I turned around and headed back for the knoll. I dove off my landing area and immediately the 27guideGPS zipped past me. I continued to free-fall down through the levels pursuing the 27guide. I saw the bright light down in F23 and entered it feeling emotionally numb. The guided headed left rocketing out. I followed.

Then I saw we were high over some tall buttes similar to those of Arizona. However, these buttes where heavily forested and the area was certainly not an arid scene. I had never see a landscape like this. The buttes were covered with trees. It was all green. The 27guide lead downward and then it disappeared. I descended and landed in the forest.

It was thick with trees like a grove of large aspens. The forest was tight with very tall mature trees (trunks about 10″) and tall slender younger trees mixed in among them. There was no path or any sense of direction. The ground was covered by long lush grass. There were no shrubs or bushes. I wandered around the trees having no idea what I should be looking for. What would I possibly find here I wondered.

As I wandered about, looking around the trees, I noticed something on the ground slumped against the trunk of one tree. I walk over and had to study the figure very hard to figure out what I was seeing. I realized this was an Indian women who had died in childbirth. She sat there leaning against the tree and showed no recognition at all that I was there. She would not look at me.

I didn’t know what to do since I had no idea what was suitable and I was aware I had no way to communicate with her. But then I found that I suddenly turned into the appearance of as an Indian chief which struck me at really inappropriate since I have no association with any Naive American heritages. Suddenly from behind me, emerging from among the trees, was a small group of Indian men that floated past me like ghosts and then they took the women away. I felt a sense of assurance because in the belief regions I had seen an Indian camp in the past. I thought to just followed them up but lost sight of them.

When I returned to F27 B and DV were there so I went to stand with them for a time when a group of very simply dressed Indians approached. They were nothing like what we would imagine from American Westerns. They stopped just down the slope from us and then one walked up to me. He placed a necklace that seemed to be made from hide and bones over my head and around my neck. Then he turned away without saying anything and they disappeared.

During the exit when I got to F21 I still felt completely spent. The Gatekeeper and now Raphael were there and again there was the small stone dwelling. Both entities rested their hands on me for a moment which seemed to steady me. The Gatekeeper said that I should come back here to rest. I looked at the door of the dwelling. It was a heavy wooden door and the arch over the doorway had some ivy growing on it. After a few moments I resumed my return.

Passing back through focus F15, I was surprised to again find the armored soldiers that I had seen previously. Passing them I entered F12 and again found the angelic guard arrayed in formation around me as before but I still had no idea what was meaning of this. Returned to C1 I was still tired and my chest still ached badly.

Wednesday’s Lesson: Find a deceased soul.

In this exercise we broke into small groups. Each student was directed to write on a small piece of paper the name of a deceased individual and place the paper in a bowl. Each student drew a name. The objective of this lesson was to find that deceased person, learn who they were relative to the person that wrote their name, and possibly bring back a message from them. The name I picked was provided by student L.

When the session started I wondered how what heck this was going to be like. How am I suppose to do this? From my affirmation statement and through every level I called out the person’s name. As I transitioned through the levels I began to see a face and as the moments proceeded I saw the face more clearly. Eventually I got to some level -maybe F27. I don’t know – and there a person walked up to me.

This was the person I had been seeing during the transitions. I began to speak with him and he seemed less than friendly. I inquired who student L was in his life and he said it was his wife, but there was no feeling from him. I asked if there was any message he wished I convey for him to her and he had none. I began to think this was very odd and it didn’t feel right at all. He would surely want to send some message if he was her husband I thought. I concluded this was nonsense and figured I’m wasn’t really finding the right person after all and so I left.

When I arrived in F21 this individual suddenly appear and try to attack me, but I blasted him off of me into the horizon. Then I saw him racing back toward me to attack again and I wondered does this fight go on for eternity now? Then two guard angels rocketed out from behind me intercepting the deceased figure dragging him out to the horizon in a trail of fading dust; like two linebackers nailing their tackle. They were gone.

Exiting and returning to the group for debrief we all reported what we found. When it came to be my turn to tell student L what I found I announced this person was her husband and she sort of sneered at me. I thought, yeah this was a long shot and then I told her what the guy was like. I told her it just didn’t make sense talking to him and then I described him. At this point L sort of freaked somewhat frightened saying, “My God, your psychic”, and went on to explain that who I saw was the deceased black sheep cousin in the family – all trouble. The face I describe was how he looked when he died. She explained he was a bullshitter; everyone in the family was fed up as he was a sort of low-life. She explained that she always wondered what would have happened to him after he died.

Thursday 9:00 AM Session – Retrievals

At my affirmation I stated, just take me wherever is needed, and I proceeded into the session. At focus F22 I lingered to listen as in the precious session I heard a women sobbing somewhere in focus 22. I heard her both coming and going through that level in the previous session (Focus F22 is a state where for example, the comatose or demented may be; some on death’s doorstep). In this session now hearing her again I resolved to go find her on the return, but at that time I no longer heard her and so I never found her.

Entering F27 I again found the deep peace of that environment and spent a moment thankful and amazed to be there. At my landing area I stood there waiting, wondering where the 27guideGPS was. When it appeared, it paused for a brief moment, but long enough for me to notice that I could detect the faint but bright image of something inside in that bright light. This was a rare moment; seeing it clearly when it was not darting around.

Then the 27guide rocketed downward and I dove after it. It entered F23 and turned under and out almost causing me to tumble, if I can use that word, trying to maneuver quickly enough to keep up with it. We were heading out to sea, but this wasn’t the same ocean I felt I was over previously in the earlier F23 sessions. This was like – I was over a real ocean.

It seemed we were heading out over colder water, or moving toward a colder region. I wondered where this would be. Are we were heading out over the North Atlantic? I wondered whether I should be looking for some vessel in the water but that seemed wrong. Next I thought we must be looking for land and then we began to descend. Soon I saw a large land feature below as if it was a very large island. Could that be Iceland? I had no idea where we were, or when we were.

Soon we were drifting lower over land and I found we were approaching a clearing in a forested area. It because apparent this was the scene of some battle as I found bodies of what looked like ancient Viking or Celtic warriors I guessed. They were littered throughout the area. I found one man with his leg hacked off and a number of other mortal wounds he had that struck me as common for brutal close quarter combat.

I didn’t know how to appear or how to address this man and so I made myself appear as another warrior. I knelt down next to him and asked him what happened. He said with utter fatigue, “I am weary of war”. I explained, “We may leave now”. He simply replied, “I am ready”. Then I said, not knowing why, “We shall all go together…”, and as the man and I rose up I realized others were rising up too from the group of men laying about us. Then others arrived and appeared to assist the other men upward as well.

As they were leaving I felt I should look around for others. As I looked about the battlefield I saw no one, but I continued to walk deeper into the forest that surrounded the area. As I wandered in I found a man sitting on the ground leaning against a tree with many arrows in his chest. I told him it was time to go. He replied, “Thank God”. As we passed upward through F23 I saw a stream of souls, so I stopped at the light to wait for everyone to arrive. Then someone said to me, “You may go up now”.

Arriving at my F27 landing area, I saw cloud-like wisps entering and flowing by. After a moment I turn to a basin of water I had fashioned at my landing area during an earlier trip. I used the basin to splash water over my face to try and refresh in previous session but returning to C1 my chest still ached.

Thursday Morning: 2nd Session 

In this next session we were instructed to go to the healing/regeneration aspect of focus F27 and observe. It was suggest that we ask for a personal healing.

Entering F12 I noticed that my chest was feeling better. Once I got to F27 I looked around for something that might impress me as being the regeneration center. Then something struck me as odd. I found a large group of Ponderosa pines; the ground beneath the trees was carpeted with pine needles. Just beyond the first trees in the group I saw something like a forest service ranger’s cabin.

I approached, walking up to a small wooden porch; entering through a screen door. Inside, the structure was much bigger and I saw aisles with various treatment areas on either side of the various aisles. It was hard to perceive and comprehend. Some areas had what looked like treatment tables. Another area looked like a reading or study area. As I walked down the aisle I saw a sitting area that I thought was for meditation. I also saw a hollow toroid shaped room with small opening for an entrance. It was like a pumpkin shaped booth and it was pure white. There were seat around its interior wall were individuals were sitting in a glowing bright light.

I sat down on one of the aisle benches to observe all the activities. At that time I saw student K and called her over. She came over and sat down with me on what seemed to be a bench. I thought I saw another student walking across the facility, and then possible yet another one. After some moments I remembered I was suppose to go pursue an experience and so I left the bench.

Heading down an aisle I encountered what I call a Tall Being (TB) that reminded me somewhat of an alien species from a Star Wars movie, or maybe some movie about Mars8 but the TB certainly did not look like either of those movie characters. I say this to allude to its appearance.

This being was tall, nearly seven foot, and clearly alien (I don’t like to describe species too specifically as I wish to avoid fueling Internet craze). This was the first time I met a alien species in what I expected to be a human environment (F27 is not solely inhabited by humans. It certainly is not administrated by humans).

As I faced the TB another TB approached. The first TB put its hand on my head and I could feel energy entering my head. Next saw what I guessed was my aura. These two TBs, each standing on opposite sides of me, pulled something like my silhouette – separating it from me – sliding it forward before me. It appeared dark or dense and had an outer coronal glow. The second TB started working on the aura, while the first being maintained his hand on my head. Then the first TB said to me, “You need to come back many times…” The second TB adding, “Many wounds this one has…”

Then I began to feel oscillations, as if a resonance between my aura and myself was ringing. After a moment the second TB put its right hand on my left shoulder. The first TB places his left hand on my right shoulder. Then working together as they faced each other they drew my aura slowly back into me. As this took place I felt a number of resonances occurring between my aura and myself. When they were finished I felt normal and ready to go.

Soon it was time to leave and when I was ready to leave F27 I began my dive. As I continued the fall, I felt my chest begin to ache9 I said to myself, or perhaps to everything around me, “What is this pain”? Something replied, “Part of you yearns to leave…[your normal state] … and be here”. When I got to F12 I was aware of some large white beings facing me, just beyond my clear perception, but there was no interaction.

After this session when we gathered for group discussion I asked student K about her experiences and she did remember going to a bench and sitting with someone though she could not detect who that was. She also commented on seeing the same toroid shaped white treatment rooms as I had, described above.

Thursday AM: last morning session – a free flow 27

A free flow session is one in which hemi-sync coding is provided with minimal narration. The idea is that one use that session for whatever purpose one has in mind.

Entering this session I felt good. My chest felt rested and restored but as I migrated up though the levels I began to feel tired again. At F21 I stopped and enjoyed looking at the stone dwelling I had been encountering. I tried to understand the meaning of this structure. What does this have to do with me? Am I able to stay there? I regret not being an artist as I would have like to be able to draw it.

Passing through F22, I detected nothing. Passing thru F23 I saw a body laying in the surf and tag it to find later. I began to feel more tired the whole way. This lead me to think I should go to the recovery center again. Passing through F24-F26 I detected pyramids in the distance, then churches…. There was also the city in the distance mentioned earlier. Lastly, of all the unexpected things, I saw an image of the Bear & Bull of Wall Street.

Arriving in F27 I met B at my landing area. I explained that I need to go to the healing/regeneration center. Once there I again found the area of Ponderosa pines and but I was so tired I had to lay down in the Pine needles. I stayed there and just rested for awhile. After a short bit I got up and went inside. Entering the Center there was someone that resembled the role of receptionist. This figure greeted me and ask how they may be of help. I answered, “I need to rest; I’m exhausted”. This figure replied, “We have just the thing. Follow me…”.

We walked past a variety of stations in which people were being helped in different ways it appeared. I noticed a TB assisting someone. We passed by the same type of toroidal booth seen earlier but this unit seated only one. I was led to a small door that opened onto a very small balcony. I was directed to sit down.

Once seated I found I was looking out over the railing of a small balcony that had room for a small cafe style table which seated one.

I noticed the craftsmanship was beautiful as I sat by myself at this small table. Here I found I was looking out at rocky escarp like landscape that descended to the ocean. As I looked I saw this steep, near vertical, landscape was dotted with similar sitting areas of various sizes. These small sitting area porch like structures were set in the mist of dense ivies draped on the landscape feature supporting the sitting areas. Below I saw the ocean washing into a small cove. I sat looking at the beautiful scene; a perfect combination of sky, land, and sea.

Then a TB arrived, entering this small alcove and offered me a beverage. He handed me a large cup of something that was warm to drink. I greeted him, or it, and accepted the beverage. When he left I tasted the drink with a small sip. I felt its warmth penetrating and refreshing my whole being. I sipped more and in a moment I gulped the whole drink down. Then I continued to sit, rest, and absorb the beautiful view. Then two other entities arrived.

One entered my small balcony. I could not figure what it or they were. It looked like a moving articulate bush that had more of a tree-like character about it. It moved behind me and placed its branches on my shoulders, as if resting its limbs. This was all it did, positioned its branches on me and let them rest there. I continued to sits feeling free of disturbance or distraction. I just rested while looking at the landscape; watching the light reflect off the ocean in the distance. It was perfect. In time, the plant or tree being left and I eventually felt I was ready to go. As I stepped out of my booth, I found an attendant there outside the doorway of my unit. I didn’t realize this individual had been there apparently the whole time available to assist.

After I left, as I was walking across F27, the closer I got to my staging area the more I felt like I was getting low on energy again, so I walked slowly to B. I said goodbye to him and then I realized how difficult going back would be. When I started my return dive I turned into a cloud and descend much more comfortably in that form. I never thought to try this before.

Drifting downward without effort I was able to recover the peaceful sense I had acquired at the treatment center. Descending to F24 I collected myself to descend directly to my entry point in F23. Passing through F23 I descended to the sea as a fog and drifted inland, allowed myself to sink through F22m still as a cloud. When I arrive at focus 21 I took on my normal form.

I stayed for awhile in F21 and in time I glided down to F12. I stayed there experiencing a mixture of a deeply restful peace and a hint of fatigue. There was no hurry to go do or say anything.

Thursday 4:00PM. Our last Voyage.

In this session one is instructed to allow one’s awareness to expand as far as one is able. Initially I found myself above Earth in space. Later I encountered something that said to me, “Come up higher…” I struggled with doing this. Then I saw the Gatekeeper, Raphael, and Ethereal together looking at me. It was as if they were iconic images hovering in space. And again something said to me, “Keep coming higher…”

I became aware that I was rising and I saw my mentors fading far below me. Then I came to some sense an awareness. I was becoming present on the scale of space far beyond my comprehension; beyond perception. I felt completely blank and still I heard something saying to me, “Continue… Continue to come up higher… Give us your mind…” I struggled to communicate asking for help with my perceptions since ‘I’ was becoming more blank, surrounded in blackness. There was this flatness of being I felt. Again I heard, “Give us your mind… ”

Then I felt like part of me was going out-of-body, of my … out-of-body state. It was like being abstracted, distilled, reduced. I have no reference for describing this sensation. Then for the briefest moment, perhaps only milliseconds, I saw …. I saw beyond creation and I was with the Master Creators for an instant.  Then they were gone and I found myself receding.

— End of the Lifeline Course —

Following this course I continued to meet some of the characters encountered above; most notably the hooded figure with the long gray hair and beard. This figure revealed his true identify later (see: Collection: The Wizard and the Gatekeeper). I also continued to meet the TBs who I’ve have become quite attached to. There were also elements of the Master Creators associates (The Intellect Engineers) that can really piss me off.

I also met my friend DV more times and I continued to meet my friend B until his transformation. At that time I was allowed, I guess, to see him transform into something I simply cannot explain. It was beyond comprehend and words.

A Couple of Post Lifeline Course Retrievals:

Saturday 4/4/15 Home from LifeLine

Now home I’m finding most everything is dark. This is certainly disappointing and so I have been mostly “bummed-out” as a result. Its hard to adjust to this environment now that I am back.

Near the end of the Lifeline seminar week I saw the body of someone on a beach so I tagged it for retrieval once I got home. Seeing that body, this past Thursday I’ve thought about that person a few times, so when I got home and settled, rather than get back into my normal routine (unpacking, cleaning up, etc) I thought I should go back without further delay.

In session I immediately noticed I did not have the quality of perception that I was experiencing at TMI. I disregarded that for the moment as I worked my way back up to F27 and consolidate there. From landing area I dove and quickly noticed the 27Guide darted past me. Part of me wondered whether I was simply recreating the images of the body on the beach, but then the 27guide darted off in a direction that I would not have anticipated and found I needed to focus carefully on it to keep up. This increased my confidence level in the authenticity of this experience. We went in a slightly different direction than I anticipated but the guide did bring me to the body which was laying face down in the sand on the beach; gentle waves washing up near its feet. Getting closer I could see it was a man and the shirt particularly caught my attention do to the dark horizontal strips on it.

Turning the body over I recognized that this man was a sailor by trade, again from a time in the past 19th century or very early 20th century I guessed, I didn’t know what country the clothing represented. I asked him what happened and all he said was “…all hands are lost…” I asked if he was ready to go and he explained he was sick of lying in the sand so I lead him up. As I led him into the light he said, “It’s real!” I replied, “Yes”. He repeated himself a number of times, that it’s real, and seemed to grow in what I would call joy and excitement. Next he proceeded ahead of me and entered the light. As I followed him I saw that he veered off to my left into the belief regions as if know exactly where to go.

Returning to focus 27 I stayed there doing nothing, basking in the peace and rest. I had no objective other then to consolidate and stay in this sense of peace. In time I realized that I have not see my familiar mentors here in F27 and wondered what sort of guidance I would find if they don’t come here. Then something quite clearly said to me, “We will serve that purpose and will provide you will necessary information when the times comes. The others you are thinking of are carrying out their purposes in the other levels as you call them”. I recognized this voice as the voice that spoke to me earlier during the Lifeline encounters about the Great Recovery. With this I realized that roles and purposes continue to carry on without me. Since that was all the communication provided, and after staying a bit longer, I soon left my platform to return.

April 6th, 2015 Trying to Re-establish Contact.

In this home session I was trying to re-establish contact, to get back to F27 beyond the Belief Territories in which (F27) individuals arrive for reorientation, healing, and adjustment. I was hoping to absorb some good energy. In my affirmation, I first thanked all Those I Know – both great and small – for giving me this moment of awareness with them but I did voice how tired I was of my nominal existence. I’m sick and tired of grocery shopping, laundry, going to work, taking care of all all these trivial petty tasks that consumes this existence. With that I expressed my need to go to the healing/regeneration aspect. However, I also stated that I was willing to do whatever else was deemed more important.

Staged in focus 10 as usual, getting ready to go to F12 something said to me, “We desire that you perform a rescue for us at this time”. I agreed and explained that I would likely need help with clear sight of the rescue area and also requested that an understanding be provided of the situation I was walking into.

Eventually I got to F21 and although I could not see the area very well it was a joy to see the cobbled path that I had previously observed the Gatekeeper walking on. I resolved to come back and spend time talking with him as he directed. I had the feeling that now we would have some conversations that would help me understand. I enjoyed looking at the cobble path as it faded into the distance.

Then the narration guided me to F22 and beyond. In F23 I looked for the person to be rescued but I couldn’t figure out where the person was. Then it occurred to me that the person was in a building, a high-rise in some city somewhere. I tagged that thought and continued moving on.

Arriving at F27 I found my deceased roommate B and before I knew it the 27guide appeared for the rescue and darted away. Without delay I raced after it. Very soon we passed back into F23 (the region souls pass thru after death). I considered for a moment that I’ve always found this level to be tranquil; a peaceful place. It never impressing me as a bad place to be.

The 27Guide seemed to be darting around. I found I got a bit confused concerning where we were going but in a moment I found myself in a long hallway. The hall looked like that of a hotel, or a motel. It was a simple or economy facility judging by the appearance. I drifted down the hall wondering where I should go. There were doors on each side of the hall and then I came to look at room #514 on my left. I knocked, then slowly press the door open.

The room similarly impressed upon me the sense that this was a low cost hotel room. There I saw the back of a man sitting at a round table looking out the hotel window. He held a revolver in his right hand, resting the gun on the table. He looked as if he was contemplating something. I walk up to him and then he suddenly turned and pointed the gun at me, but then he set it back down on the table.

I asked what he was doing. He explained he was trying to decide whether he should kill himself. I responded to him saying, “You already have”. He looked surprised or puzzled. I place my left hand on his right shoulder and explain that we may go now if he wished. He still seemed surprised and then a few assisting agents drifted into the room and together they left peacefully.

I found myself alone in the room and then I drifted out the window. I looked down and saw that I was in a high-rise beach front hotel, although I didn’t know what coastline I was on. From there I head up to the light and exited.

Quickly I proceeded to F27, heading to the healing/regeneration area. There I found myself at the ponderosa pine forest and walked into the center. Again I met someone that served as a sort of receptionist and I explained I was there for another treatment. This individual felt female and she led me down the same aisle I been down before. There she directed me to wait on a bench. Almost immediately one of that TB (Tall Beings) was there and requested that I follow. It seemed we went to the same treatment area I’ve been in before, the one where my aura was worked on while I was at the Lifeline course.

Here a TB stood across from me and said to the one that led me in, ” Ah. This one…”. The other TB added saying to me, “It’s good that you have returned”. Then again, my aura was separated from me. I reflected that what was separated may somehow be my soul. I wondered for a moment about the semantics of this.

In this procedure I observed that the two tall beings (TBs) both worked on my aura that I could only faintly perceive at this time. In time they merge my aura back into me, but this time I did not seem to feel anything. When it was time to leave the Center I felt like a dirty coal-mine worker with headlamp and lunch-box resigned to go labor in the dark. I wished it felt better than this – going back.

Leaving, I passed back thru F23 and again felt how peaceful that place is, where souls pass out of their earthly lives. I breezed back through F21 and home to C1. Exiting C1 I found I actually did feel better. It felt like things were more peaceful. I wasn’t as stressed by the sense of time in this World. It seemed ok to continue now, to be back to “normal”



  1. As a quick orientation: F22 is considered an area where the state of mind of the comatose (for example) may reside. F23 is the first state one encounters when one dies. This is a region where those who do not pass on after death may, for some reason, be stuck. Focus 24-26 is a region coined the Belief Territories. It represents places defined by consensus views of heavens, hells, and everything in between. An individual’s consciousness may gravitate to constructs in these regions that agree with the dictates/expectations of their beliefs. They are not confined there by anything other then themselves. They are free to leave or migrate to other areas. After death an individual does not have to go to the Belief Territories (BTs). They can proceed directly to Focus 27, a region of consciousness the BTs. It is however, the limits of the Earth Life System. 
  2. A free-flow session is one in which there is no predetermined objective or lesson for that session. One is provided this time to purse the focus environment without specific tasks assigned. 
  3. I was always puzzled about the white appearance of our Sun which seemed wrong to me in this experience – whether it was authentic. I knew our Sun was in the yellow class of stars specifically a GV2 type stars which are often referred to as a yellow dwarf tho slightly hotter then most other yellow dwarfs. In May 2020 I discovered that our Sun, a G-type star spectrally does appear white when viewed from space. 
  4. The dragons are discussed in other notes. I first encountered them during my home Gateway Voyage experiences about the time I was becoming aware of Earth spirits. See footnotes in the Starlines course notes. Unfortunately I have not yet written a collection about my encounters with Earth Dragons nor have I explained what they are. 
  5. This figure later in time becomes a central character. 
  6. DV lived alone and died of a heart attack in his home. It was after a couple of weeks before the neighbors realized he was not getting his mail. Soon the police were called to get into the house and they found him. I learned these details from DV‘s brother. I happened to call while DV‘s parents and brother just arrive in Montana coming from Atlanta to start taking care of DV‘s affairs. DV was about 54 years old when he died. 
  7. During the years I had known B he always said that if he was going to die and die slowly, he would just off himself; no question, no big deal. In the end he had pancreatic cancer and made the choice to not pursue treatment and to see it through to the end, and so he died in a friend’s home refusing narcotics to dull the pain as he wanted to fully experience his death. My friend DV had seen the darkness of depression up close and had considered suicide at times. Both B and DV, my two best friends, had carefully considered suicide. 
  8. Over the years I have continued to meet the TBs since the Lifeline course. I also have a friend I met in the Exploration F27 course who in recent months also met a TB. He didn’t know I had met them until I offered a drawing of the figures and he confirmed it was the same species that he met while in F27. 
  9. This problem with chest pain was also experienced by other students. In post-session group discussion, it was suggested that one inquire as to the source of the sensation; why it was happening. I was also shown in following months how I could successfully treat myself for this ailment by a character I call The Wizard
