Australian Aboriginal Spiritual Beliefs

Written by Gary Wonning

Rock art can be like a  map, one drawing leads to the next. 

Most of them don’t know how old they are, there are no records, they can only guess.  

Women can be leaders but men are normally the leaders, it’s through blood. If there is no one in  the bloodline, the next best takes over.

Suicide is a  disgrace, they never saw a burden in life and they could die when they wanted. They chose the spiritual way when depressed, they talk to themselves if no mates are nearby. 

They believe there is no  better learning than life learning, the  knowledge is not important it’s how you feel about it.

There are about twelve hundred tribes,  and there are tribes no one knows about.  Even today, not all of Australia has been explored. Some of the tribes still live underground.

There is a time and place for everything.

If we would be more trusting in spirit, everything would be provided.

The Aborigines would swim in the water with crocodiles, they would only take people who had done something wrong. They still swim with the crocodiles and believe the only time you get sick of a disease is if you did something wrong.

The living and dead are a link between the present culture and its mythic logical origin. Older paintings were said to have been done by spirits from the dream-time.

Mime spirits are Extraterrestrials.

Many are are still proud won’t rummage through garbage or paint graffiti on restroom.

Sacred Site is a place where aborigines find a manifestation of divine power, a sense of contact with creative form

All nature is sacred, but in creation place spirit power manifests more readily .

These are place where great events of creation took place.

Members of a group share common totem, each individual has totem.

A totem is the first animal a mother sees after the first kick of the unborn child.

His travels have taken him to most of the United States, as well as Australia, Belize, Egypt and the Canary Islands.

He has studied the Mayan culture of Central America and the aborigines of

Australia. Photography has given him the opportunity to observe life in various parts of the world.

He has observed that many of the forgotten cultures had spiritual beliefs that were stronger than ours in modern times.

While we have advanced technically far superior to those that came before us, we have lagged behind in spiritual knowledge.

For us to advance as the human race, we need to combine the spiritual knowledge of those that came before us, not only that of the ancients but the knowledge of our direct ancestors as well, with the technical knowledge we have today for us to propel into the twenty-first century and beyond.

The Australian Dream Time

The aborigines of Australia

Written by Gary Wonning

More of the Australian Aborigine culture

Dream-time has different meanings, sometimes you are just using memory, or if dreaming into the future it is imagination. Sleep dream-time is just anytime in the  past

They say that all spiritual beings instead of settling on the earth they say they dreamed it up.

When you go on a trip, they say you dream it up first.

All travel costs in energy, time, and money.

When you go to Cairns, time and travel is just a dream, and money doesn’t disappear, it just changes form.

When you spend all your time and money on earth the physical body dies, we all have a bank of physical energy when we are born, when the physical energy is used up, the body dies, just like when a car runs out of gas, it stops.

Spiritual energy doesn’t die, it continues on, it just changes form. 

A lifetime is called a dreaming(destiny) they say aborigines are spiritual scientists. We are all  are spiritual  scientist.

Aborigines have been traced to Iraq, Iran, Malaysia, they are Caucasians, being an aborigine refers to religion,not color of skin. If you follow the way of life you are Aborigine, regardless of color, in Australia, any aborigine can get welfare regardless of color.

You can either be Australian or Aborigine. and you can change each census, and you can be anything you want, German French, etc. 

Being an aborigine has nothing to do with color or physical features, it’s the same as being Christian,  they believe there are only 2 types of people, aborigines, and the rest, If you are European Negro , you are white feller.

There is no scientific evidence they have been here more than 12,000 years, but  legends state they have been in Australia for at least 40,000 years. 

Nature has caused thousands of species to disappear, it has nothing to do with climate change or other human activity.

Fire is part of nature and shouldn’t be put out, it is natures way of clearing dead brush and trees.

The Rainbow Serpent created the world and is  like a God.

They can sense spiritual sites , which ones are most important, and can predict when the water will dry up.

They cannot cross another tribes land with out permission, it’s not that way any more, like everything else, times are changing. 

Rock Art is  not important anymore

The deceased were buried in trees wrapped up bones and put in tree , some were put in graves, some were cremated,  or embalmed,

Some tribes cut off the heads.

Many have seen the Rainbow Serpent, it is described as similar to meeting God, or an Angel. Many compare it to meeting the Loch Ness Monster, only certain people see it.

It’s  more feeling than visual. Like a God, if you believe it’s there, it’s there, like the wind blowing.

We believe God is our creator, they believe the Rainbow Serpent is their  creator

The Rainbow Serpent created everything and watches over us, only tribal Elders meet him, he  came from the Sun.

Sedona and the American Indians

The portals of Sedona, a land of mystery and intrigue

Written by Gary Wonning

The Native American Indians never lived in the Sedona area, even in the earliest of times. Sedona was believed a magical area, they only came to worship and come closer to their creator. They believed the spirits of their ancestors, as well as those of animals no longer seen in the third dimension, resided in the red rocks, thus it was believed to be a place of great spiritual significance, a sanctuary where one only visits but doesn’t live.

The Waterfall In the Life Between Lives

Written by Gary Wonning

Most legends or myths are found to be based on factual events sometime in the distant past, or from some spiritual ritual believed to have come from Source.

What about the waterfall, what is the significance of water running over a cliff?

Many people who have had to opportunity to visit the land in between lives describe the waterfall on the river of life as being vibrations of green light, like vibrations in the water, vibrations that change to red and varying degrees of the colors and surround the soul.

They are described as soft, faint glows of light combining in various colors resembling rhythmic and vibrational waves, that many describe as sound waves.

They spread out and are no longer water, but just colors transcending into a vacuum, being sucked into a hole, much like water in a whirlpool, or a black hole in space.

Souls who are privy to this describe themselves as becoming one with the waterfall, becoming one with the mist that forms, and thus becoming one with the waterfall, becoming more of an energy than matter with no defined shape.

At this point, the soul feels it is just energy attempting to combine with the Source.

Most describe the experience as not being able to combine with the Source, and being ignored by it.

Perhaps, as many philosophies teach,  we all need to attain a certain level of evolvement before we can unite with Divine Source.

That is the purpose of reincarnating again and again.

Sooner or later, we all get it right.

Sedona Vortex

Written by Gary Wonning

an excerpt from my book. The Portals of Sedona.

In addition to being a beautiful and serene place; even in ancient times, Sedona has always been famous as a spiritual power center. The vortexes produce some of the most remarkable energy on the planet.

I have found the vortexes in Sedona both exciting and spiritually inspiring. If you are at all sensitive to the energy, the experience of entering one of these vortexes, and letting the energy flow into you and through you, can indeed be overwhelming and life changing.

Do We Decide When To Die

photo of the Egyptian Sphinx at sunset

A journey into the unknown. Open new avenues in your spiritual journey

Written by Gary Wonning

Do we decide prior to reincarnating when we will die?

We decide our whole live before we reincarnate, but once we reenter the physical realm  we have an opportunity to change our life plan and what we want to accomplish.

We always have free will and can and do change our life plan frequently, by doing this we activate alternate lives and our whole perspective changes.

We then follow that path until we accomplish our goals or once again change what we want to see and do.

Thus, you can change when you want to leave your human life. When souls decide to leave their physical lives, they take all of their energy and their bodies become lifeless.

They then  leave the physical plane of that life for good, entering the ethereal plane of the Earth.  When a soul passes, it feels lighter as it is leaving all the feelings from physical life behind.

When a person dies, the memories of absolutely everything that human being lived and experienced, the memories that are stored in the human brain,  are taken by the soul and stored  in the Akashic memories, at the Tree of Life.

The memories belong to their spirit, their greater or higher self. The spirit has access to all those memories  anytime it wants.

Also, that soul will be able to access that life’s memories in its next life if it does a past life regression, or as is the case many times, the soul has spontaneous past life recall which can trigger a desire and curiosity to know more of it’s past. 

Many times this is the souls way of becoming aware of  memories from the past and create awareness of former existences both on planet earth and elsewhere about the cosmos.

Reality is a matter of perception.

Regardless of how it comes about, or if it comes about, these situations are always a result of the souls free will to decide to experience or not experience a particular  experience.

What Happens When We Die

Written by Gary Wonning

Many of us have often wondered what happens to us when we die?

It is an age old question and one that is difficult to correctly answer because once we die, we theoretically can no longer communicate with those who we have left behind.

There are individuals who have had a near death experience or an out of body experience who have relayed their perception of what they encountered.

Many of them tell of similar encounters when they return to our plane of existence.

Most often, those who have had a NDE tell of passing through the light, or going towards the light and meeting a spiritual being such as Jesus, who tells them their mission on earth is not complete and they need to go back so they can accomplish what they came to earth to do.

They then return to their physical body, recover from their accident or illness and resume their lives, often while accomplishing important duties.

While this is interesting and important information, it still doesn’t explain what happens after we die, since these people never actually died.

All of this being said, the only information we can rely on is the knowledge we gather from psychics, mystics and those who have done past life and in between life regression.

Although many would dispute this type of information, it is the only thing we have to go on, and when so many repeat the same scenario, we can rely on it being pretty accurate.

Most offer a slightly different version of the same story: when physical death occurs and souls leave their bodies, after passing through the “light” they are  greeted by their Spirit Guides, who accompany and guide them to the non physical dimension where souls go after death.

The Guides are highly evolved souls who mentor and direct other souls toward spiritual evolution. Sometimes, souls who just passed away are greeted by loved ones who have previously died and who may also be their Guides.

They are then shown the Tree of Life and communicate with other spirits with whom they have had many incarnations where the previous lifetime is contemplated and discussed. Once they are ready again to reincarnate, all the possibilities of what they would like to accomplish and the best possible way to accomplish their mission. 

Their new life is then discussed with all the souls who will be participating in the life adventure, and if all are willing , the reincarnation process begins.
