My journeys to the other planets began years ago when I awoke one night in the soul body to find an olive-complexioned, Asian-looking monk in a tan robe standing in my bedroom. He asked me to come with him and then vanished into a hole in the ceiling. Leaving my physical body behind, I followed and saw him flying up what looked like a fluorescent tube or tunnel. About midway up the tunnel gravity seemed to reverse and we dropped down onto the starlit surface of an alien planet. When I uttered surprise at how bright the stars were, my guide explained that the planet was Mars and that the
brightness was due to its very thin atmosphere.
We were standing in a desert landscape with arid plains in the foreground and
dark mountain ranges in the distance. The monk pointed across the rock-strewn plain where hooded figures in brown or tan robes were being chased by soldiers in jeep-like vehicles. The robed monks appeared to be heavily outnumbered and outgunned. Many were shot and killed by their pursuers, while only a few made it to safety in the mountains. My guide informed me that the monks were freedom fighters struggling against the tyranny of the ruling class.
This was my first visit to another planet, an experience I later used in “Warriors of the
Sound Current” to introduce the protagonist, Jeff, to his mission. I had no idea I was
going to write a novel at the time of the experience, but sometime thereafter I was
overcome by an irrepressible curiosity about the Sound Current and the other planets
of the solar system. I set myself the spiritual goals to hear the sound of each plane
and to Soul project to each of the planets.
To initiate my travels to the planets I most often used what I call the “Body Dropping” technique coupled with the “Many Friends” technique. The first exercise involves visualizing that I am dropping each of my lower bodies – the physical, astral, causal, and mental bodies. I see them sinking below me as I soar upwards through each
realm tinged with its predominant color – green for the physical, red-pink for the astral, copper-orange for the causal, and blue for the mental plane. After that there is a brief moment of traversing a dark barrier-like area, which is the unconscious or etheric plane separating the lower planes from the soul plane.
On the soul plane I find myself in a formless, swirling body of brilliant light in soft surroundings of white, cream, and gold. Everything seems to hum with the flute music of the Sound Current. I then direct my attention back to earth. The clouds part and I see
myself in orbit above the blue and white planet. I am now in a bright body that looks much like my physical body, only it is more beautiful. It is the body Soul takes
on while traveling in the lower worlds.
In my case I usually appear to be wearing a white suit, although I’ve seen other out of the body travelers wear different garments that reflect their individuality as Soul.
From my position in orbit, I send out a telepathic call to all my friends – Souls on the surface below who might want to assist me. Soon I behold many Soul forms ascending rapidly from below and gathering in a great swarm around me. When all who want to come are present, we begin chanting the word HU, which is a powerful
mantra to connect us to the Sound Current. With the power of the HU behind and within us, we accelerate out into space to our destination.
If you're wondering if the various people who come to help me with my spiritual
journey during this exercise actually remember the experience after returning to their
physical bodies, my guess would be: probably not. Soul can exist and act in many
places at once simply by awakening Its awareness there. However, what these
fragments of consciousness perceive and do isn't always known to our human
personalities. Nevertheless, these experiences are real, and Soul knows what has
happened and where It has been.
For my part, I have been to the moon in the soul body on several occasions and have
never found any signs of life there. It was just as airless and barren for me as it was
for the Apollo astronauts when they physically set foot on it.
In his writings I recall Paul Twitchell notes somewhere that the moon was once
inhabited and that its population and atmosphere were wiped out during an
interplanetary war a long time ago. I haven't put in the effort to go back that far in time
to prove this to myself, but I find it reasonable that the moon may once have been
inhabited and that many of its craters could be caused by massive bombs rather than
meteors. Other moons in the solar system I believe are inhabited, in particular the
larger moons of Saturn and Jupiter.
