An excerpt from my book; A Journey Towards Enlightenment.

a personal spiritual journey

As with everyone, my learning continued to increase. Whether we realize it or not, each and everyone of us is on a spiritual journey, or walkabout, this is the reason we incarnate on planet earth. Many go through life and never realize this, however, the journey goes on, regardless if we are conscious of it or not.

The spiritual path I was on became my passion, every spare minute I had was spent studying all the different aspects and facets of the esoteric world. I couldn’t get enough of it, it was all I wanted to talk about, I was probably driving everyone around me crazy, I’m surprised many of them continued to speak to me.

Thoughts on Reincarnation

Interesting thoughts, part of which I borrowed from someone else.

According to a Pleiadian interpretation of life, Jesus taught reincarnation and not resurrection.

Human beings evolve by living life over and over again on the material plane in order to gain knowledge from their life lessons.

The primary goal of reincarnation is to evolve into beings of higher consciousness or beings of a higher vibration and love.  The message is that we are being called to the next phase of our evolution as beings here on planet Earth.

However, human beings always reincarnate as people, never as animals as in the Hindu cosmology since animals do not evolve spiritually as humans do.

Animals are part of the overall evolution of nature itself. Another fact to consider is the word evolution has two meanings. The first meaning is that a development and unfolding of what already exists, but is hidden. This means that something has to rise from the unconscious to the conscious. The second meaning is that something that does not yet exist is created, developed, and explored.

It is a consensus by biblical scholars today that reincarnation was part of early Jewish thought.

Hasidic Jews got their ideas about reincarnation from medieval Jewish mystics, known as Kabbalists.

Hasidism is a form of Judaism that was founded in the 18th century in Poland by Rabbi Israel Baal Shem Tov (ca. 1700– 1760).  He took elements of Kabbalistic teaching and made it accessible to the common people in a movement that spread across Eastern Europe as a result reincarnation is a fundamental Hasidic belief.

One Hasidic bedtime prayer asks for forgiveness for “anyone who has angered or vexed me… in this incarnation or any other.”  Both Kabbalists and Hasidic Jews tell us that every person has a spark of the divine inside of them and that the destiny of humanity is to liberate that divine spark and unite it with the larger Creation.

These two ideas of reincarnation and union with God, or Creation, have been a part of Judaism since the time of Jesus.

Of course, these teachings had to be suppressed for fear of persecution by the religious hierarchy.  Since the beginning, Mystics have always had a difficult time in any religion.

And so it may stand to reason that at the time of Jesus, mystical and rabbinic Judaism were one and the same. The rabbis who founded traditional Judaism were also mystics. So if Jesus did teach reincarnation and divine union instead of resurrection, as I believe he did, he either absorbed these ideas from the great rabbis of his day and/ or he learned this from his association with Star Visitors.

The Land of the Pharaoh

Written By: Gary Wonning

As the plane made it’s final approach into Cairo over the Egyptian desert, a chill went up my spine. Looking out the window, I saw the exact same scene I had visualized a few years earlier during the hypnotic regression when I experienced coming to earth several thousand years ago.

I had regressed back to a time in Egypt when I recalled teleporting from another planet, as my soul entered the earth’s atmosphere, I sensed I was forming a body by consciously gathering the minerals and elements out of the earth’s atmosphere.

I set foot on planet earth for the first time, I had come to Saqqara Egypt, a place not far from here. Now as the plane came in for it’s final approach, with darkness descending over the desert, looking out the window and seeing the Giza pyramids, I suddenly recalled seeing the same scene I remembered from my hypnotic session. WOW!

My mind raced back to that session, I had never been here before in this lifetime, there is no way I could have known what Egypt would look like at this time of day. I began to recall the things I had said and remembered during the recall, it had been a time of an awakening, a time to realize there was more to life than conventional wisdom teaches us.

A Letter From Shirley Maclaine

a personal spiritual journey

Written By: Gary Wonning

Spring in the Midwest can be rather diverse, the weather is constantly changing, the month of May especially can be challenging. After a long winter a person’s thoughts naturally turn to warm weather, however, mother nature doesn’t always cooperate. We were having an unusually cold spring, with many cold blustery days even into May when the temperatures hung in the forties. Those conditions really don’t do much for the disposition.

It was on one such day when I arrived home from work and found in my mailbox a letter from Los Angeles, California.

I at first thought it to be junk mail and didn’t open it.  After dinner I noticed it’s return address read “Avenue Of The Stars” Hollywood, California Realizing this was no junk mail, I immediately tore open the letter.

SHOP HERE FOR ALL YOUR ESOTERIC NEEDS

My mind immediately raced back to a forgotten incident. About nine months previous I had read, “Dancing In The Light”, by Shirley MacLaine, in which Shirley described several past lives she had researched concerning people in her present life. At the time I had been involved in the same type of research, my life had taken several twists and turns, and in the process, I had been sorting out a lot of past life connections. Researching those lives, Shirley MacLaine was one of the people that I had known during the American Revolution.

I immediately forgot about the miserable weather.

I had written Ms. MacLaine concerning this, and also gave her a brief history of what I had been experiencing at this time. Several months had gone by and getting no answer from her, I realized she was an extremely busy person and couldn’t possibly answer all of her correspondence, I had forgotten about writing her.

Living in a “spiritual wilderness”, the letter couldn’t have come at a better time, not only was my body frozen from the cold weather, but my spirituality had become frozen as well. I needed an affirmation from someone confirming what I had been feeling was true, and that affirmation coming from a respected movie star made it even more credible. That letter is still framed and hanging above my desk as a reminder of a time when no one believed as I did, but my persistence and determination paid off until finally, I began to meet people of a like mind.

An Out of Body Experience

A New World is Revolving

Written By: Gary Wonning

After leaving her body and again entering mine, looking at her I could sense she seemed to experience nothing. At the time it was rather unsettling, I wanted to share it with someone but felt I couldn’t.  As time went by it was never discussed with her and now I haven’t seen her in years,so I must deal with it on my own. Perhaps someday it will be different.

Through it all, I learned that each and everyone of us experiences reality in our own distinct way. Two people never see things exactly the same. That doesn’t make either one of them wrong, it just gives each one a different perspective and enables each to see things as they must so they may learn whatever lessons they need to learn.

Going Back In Time, The First Hypnotic Session

A New World is Revolving

Written By: Gary Wonning

The hypnotic session continued,Tom began to take me back in time, back to when I celebrated my sixth birthday. I began to describe the clothes I wore as well as the gifts I received. I have no way of knowing if what I described was true, as far as I know, my sixth birthday was rather uneventful and I really don’t remember it.

Things were really starting to get interesting, Tom began to regress me back to a time before my birth, to a time during the preexistence, when I had no physical form. I saw myself as a spirit, floating through space, he then directed me to find a light, a tiny speck of light, and to focus on that, as soon as I did, I immediately began to move into it. It resembled being in a theater and becoming a part of the movie. As I became the light, I could feel myself slowly descending to earth, as I descended, could feel my physical body forming, I was actually pulling elements out of the earth’s atmosphere to create the form I needed to survive on earth.

I had a memory of a past existence on another planet. This planet was far away, in the Sirius star system, I could even remember some of the people that came along, many were souls I had become friends with in this lifetime.

My First Past Life Regression

My first past life regression

Written By; Gary Wonning

January 22,1985 will be a day I will never forget. It had taken me quite some time to build my confidence enough to undergo hypnosis. I had been wanting to try hypnosis for quite some time, but the only people that I knew that had undergone this were in the books that I had read, I didn’t know any real people that had “been there”

The sunsets behind the Egyptian sphnix

Earlier in the fall of 1984, Tom had placed an ad in the local paper stating that he could stop someone from smoking by the use of hypnosis. Seeing this ad, I thought about it for about a month, and finally, after working up my courage I went to see him.

This was back in 1984, very few people believed this stuff back then, and I will have to admit that I was more than just a little nervous about discussing this with a professional in a town where everyone knew me.

“Have you done any past life regressions?” I asked.

“Well, yes I have done three.” Was his nervous reply.

Needless to say, this didn’t build my confidence any. I thought about it for about three months and finally decided to give it a try.

After putting most of my fears behind me, I scheduled an appointment with Tom. My wife who had always been open to a lot of new ideas, had in the past few months suddenly become more fundamentalist in her thinking and was extremely opposed to my new way of thought, saying that because of what I was doing I would surely wind up in Hell. Since I didn’t believe in Hell I kept my appointment with Tom.
