Does A Person In A Coma Have A Soul?

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

Written by Gary Wonning

There is always  controversy concerning the human soul and what it is, if it exists at all. 

We can’t actually see the soul and many people believe that if something can’t be  seen, it doesn’t exist. They forget that we can’t see electricity but we all know electricity exists.

I think most clear thinking people do believe we have a soul. Falsely thinking that we are a body who has a soul, when in actuality, we are a soul that occupies a human body.

Our soul is who we really are, we only occupy a body in order to be able to express ourselves in a worldly form.

Along with this issue, many debate when and if the soul enters the human body.

My personal opinion is the soul enters the fetus at conception,  it only makes sense that the soul would need time to acclimate itself with its new form of transportation for the next ninety or so years. The soul may come and for for a time during pregnancy while it decides if it really wants to experience the chosen life, but in the long run, the soul is almost always present in the fetus.

The soul needs this time, along with childhood to to learn its new environment and to adjust to its new body. 

There is also discussion as to whether the soul leaves the body when a person is in a coma  after a traumatic life experience. 

Many people, after recovering from a coma relive experiences they encountered while in a coma, sometimes remembering going somewhere to learn new skills and talents.

Often times after they re-enter the human existence, their lifestyle and belief structure changes completely, often to the amazement of fellow workers and friends.

This would mean that the soul of a person in a coma is no longer in its body, especially if the body is on life support. The human body is then supported by artificial means, leaving the soul to wander about the universe as it pleases. 

Many times the person can remember meeting Jesus, God, or some other spiritual leader, which often changes their life completely and they go on to accomplish many acts which they wouldn’t not have had the skills before the out of body experience.

We actually think with our soul, the brain is just a physical manifestation of our soul, the vehicle which enables the body to function, taking orders from our soul or Higher Self. 

In my way of thinking, the body cannot function on it’s own without a soul.

It would be like trying to operate a computer without a hard drive.

There are Many References To Masonry In Egyptian History

The Masonic Influence on World History

Written by Gary Wonning

There have been many references that rituals similar to the masonic rituals of today were performed in the pyramid of Unas located in Saqqara, and the Giant Pyramid of Cheops in Giza, just outside of Cairo.

The degree of perfection in the building of the pyramids, their ability to withstand the rigors of time, and their alignment to celestial as well as earthly edifices allude to the fact the early Egyptians had knowledge that in many instances far exceeds our knowledge even today.

They also brought forth the two pillars of creation. The two columns or pillars represented the upper and lower portions of Egypt. Jachin and Boaz, the pillars of establishment and strength, signify this in masonry.

The two represent stability, which is necessary for a society to survive and prosper.

Maat, also known as Ma’at or Mayet, was a female goddess in the ancient Egyptian religion; she represented truth, justice, balance and morality. The daughter of the Egyptian sun deity Ra and wife of the moon god Thoth, she served a kind of spirit of justice to the Egyptians.

When Does A Soul Enter A Body?

Open new avenues in your spiritual journey

Written by Gary Wonning

Since time immemorial, but especially since the abortion issue arose in the 1970s, the question has always been, when does the soul enter the body?

If you ask twenty people, you will get twenty different answers. Often times the answers are based on their political views, or someone’s rights.

All the great sages and mystics agree, the soul enters the human body at the moment of conception. As soon as the sperm meets the ovule, conception occurs. If and when you would stop and think about it, that is just common sense. Conception is the spark that lights the match. Everything that comes after that is a result of the initial act.

Without the soul the body could not function, or develop the thought process necessary to maintain a life. Without a soul, a human body is a unthinking lifeless form.

Most women instinctively know when they become pregnant, if there was no soul to communicate with, she would not know.

The soul does have a period of about seven weeks to decide if it wants to remain in the embryo or move on to a different reality, during that time, it is weighing all the options, and communicating with the parents so that all are on the same page, and each one has it’s consent taken into consideration.

If it decides to stay, then the process of transitioning from the ethereal world to the physical world begins, at that point in time the process is complete and the soul begins assimilating to it’s new body and life on earth.

Because we all have free will, and decide when and where to enter the physical life, we choose our gender when we enter the womb, it isn’t decided when we are in the ethereal world, it can only be determined shortly after conception.

Like all aspects of our life, gender is chosen by the individual, so the soul can experience the type of life it needs to evolve and find it’s way back to the God Source.

The soul, which is “Spirit” in the ethereal world, is actually energy and occupies very little space, it is very minute, and is capable of receiving guidance from our Super or Christ consciousness, it controls the whole body and everything we do.

In essence, the soul guides our every action, which in part are guided from our subconscious memories from the past.

Those memories are part of our mission on earth which is to not only settle our karma, but to chart a new course for the future where karma will no longer play a part in our lives.

Albert Pike: The Distinction Between Good and Evil

The Masonic Influence on World History

Words of the noted masonic scholar and writer, Albert Pike

The distinction between good and evil is real and not relative. We have free will to distinguish and choose between Moral Truths and evil.

Time Is A Continuum

Open new avenues in your spiritual journey

Written by Gary Wonning

Time is a continuum 

Time is continuous, it never ends. There is no beginning or end, time is a continuous cycle that exists on different planes or levels of existence. 

I often compare the different periods of times to a radio, when we listen to a radio, to find different radio stations and different forms of music and entertainment, we turn the dial, or these days , we push scan. By doing this, we are able to dial in the station and type of music we desire.

In life we do the same. To live the life our soul desires, we dial in the plane of existence and reality that will give us the life experiences we desire to grow and learn the lessons we come to earth to experience.

There are an infinite number of planes of existence, or vibrational planes. In order to change our plane of existence, all we need to do is to change our focus.

Ethereal time refers to the plane of existence we call heaven, paradise, Ultimate Reality, or one of many other terms we humans associate with the great beyond.

It exists alongside all the thousands of other planes of existence that are present in the cosmos, and which can be accessed by changing our vibrational patterns. 

These planes of existence can be accessed by meditation, hypnosis, or other forms of mind altering methods.

The Source of life, God, or Chi Energy, is present in one and all of the vibrational fields. This field is also parallel to all the other levels of existence, just as all levels, past,present, and future are all just parallel levels that are existing simultaneously, there is no beginning or end.

The past is parallel to the present, and the present is a reflection of decisions made in the past. Only the present reflects the future by the decisions that are made in the present. 

In reality, all the planes of existence are parallel, past, present, and future, it is for the individual soul to determine which plane of existence it will focus on.We don’t, as some believe cross over a bridge to another world, we just change our focus.

We are drawn to the light of a new reality and thus begin a new existence, if we don’t focus on a particular energetic plane, we wander aimlessly through the universe until we determine how and where we want to spend the next human life, just as in life, we sometimes wander aimlessly until we find our true passion.

As stated previously, everything is happening simultaneously, what we experience and see is what our consciousness is focusing on, to change our life, we just need to change our focus. 

There is no right or wrong life, we don’t need to do any certain mission, only the mission we feel in our heart is right for us. What we may or may not have done in a previous life has no bearing on this life, our mission this time around is normally entirely different.

For those souls that may remember a life when they were instrumental in a major change in society, this can be a hard lesson to sometimes understand, they often feel an obligation, when in fact their obligations were fulfilled previously, maybe this time, it’s their turn to learn for their own evolvement. 

We don’t always come here to save the world, it can be someone else’s turn.

Can A Psychic Tell the Future

photo of the Egyptian Sphinx at sunset

Open new avenues in your spiritual journey

Written by Gary Wonning

Through time immemorial people have consulted psychics, mediums, fortune tellers and the like to see what the future holds for them and their loved ones.

Do they really have a window to the future and how reliable are they?

You will find opinions on both side of the argument, so it is hard to discern what is truth and what is fiction or merely false hope.

Success or failure depends on the circumstances, and free will.

I have found the success rate of those I have consulted  runs at about eighty-five percent.

By that, I find that about eighty-five percent of the time something comes about that coincides with what they have told me. That doesn’t mean the prophecy came about the way I imagined, or even remotely concerning the event I had in mind, it just means there was  something happened that was very similar to what I was told.

There are many times the psychic hit it right on the nose, exactly how I thought, although many times it may take months or even years to come about.

The most important factor concerning the reliability of a psychic is our own free will.

Even though something seems almost a sure thing and will come about, there is always the possibility we will change our mind and go in an entirely different direction. 

There are no guarantees in life and nothing is written in stone, except the ten commandments.  Minute by minute, our free will is subject to changing what we want or should do, we are also dealing with other souls who also have free will, so the options are limitless. 

When another soul changes their course of direction, it can affect our choices and make other options than the one we had originally chosen seem more attractive, thus we are free to choose a better and possibly easier path, leaving the other option open for possibly a later date when that option more suits our needs or desires.

The psychic is dealing with possibilities and can only foresee what we are projecting, if we are projecting a certain reality based on the evidence we have at the present , and those facts , as we see them change, then our future will change unbeknownst to the medium. 

We are the one that changed our reality, the psychic had nothing to do with it, a reputable psychic will possibly see this, that is why most will tell you the final outcome is entirely up to you and the decisions you make on a soul level.

You make these decisions on the soul or super conscious level and then on the conscious level, thus there is often a delay before the decision comes to fruition.

The psychic then fulfills their mission, getting us to think about the options and thereby getting us to decide what it is that we really want.

A Spiritual Encounter In The Outback Of Australia

photo of the Egyptian Sphinx at sunset

Open new avenues in your spiritual journey

Written by Gary Wonning

Ubirr Rock is a sacred monolith in Kakadu National Park in the Northern Territory of Australia.

Ubirr Rock has several natural shelters that contain a collection of rock art, some thought to be tens of thousands of years old. The art depicts creation ancestors and animals from the area including barramundi, catfish, goannas, long neck turtles,wallabies and kangaroos.

Some of the paintings can date back as far as forty thousand years, with most having been done about two thousand years ago and many have been repainted several times.

The main gallery contains many examples of x-ray art and is probably the most photographed. Also is seen paintings of white men and Mimi spirits ( extraterrestrials) , so thin they can slip in and out of the cracks in the rocks.

A painting of a Thylacine, or Tasmanian tiger, can be seen at the northern end of the gallery. This tiger  has been extinct in the area for about 2000 years, and attests to the antiquity of the paintings.

Rainbow Serpent Gallery

This is a woman only site, and is  the most sacred site at Ubirr, although this rule is often relaxed for non-indigenous tourists. This is the spot visited by the Rainbow Serpent or “Garranga’rreli”, during her path across the top end of Australia, during the Dreaming. As she crossed the land, she “sang” the rocks, plants, animals, and people into existence. This path, or songline is still a sacred path to the indigenous people who live in northern Australia.

From the top of Ubirr rock there is a panoramic view of the flood plains and escarpments.

It is from this idyllic view I experienced my most profound spiritual encounter.

Exiting from the bus that brought me here, I left the main trail and began walking around the back of the rock and started climbing the 100 ft. vertical wall, all the time carrying 40 lbs. of camera gear on my back.

As I began my ascent my reality began to change, I was no longer an American photographer visiting Australia, I was transformed into a native carefully climbing a vertical wall, placing each hand and foot in a strategic place, never pausing, but slowly climbing upward as I had done many times before. Always finding a tree, root or rock ledge enabling me to continue my climb, never pausing but slowly climbing upward in my search for truth.

Reaching the top of this sacred Shrine in the middle of some of the most isolated land in the world I began to feel overwhelming love and peace and a sense of being home, I had returned to the Land of Oz.

As I lay on this sacred monument my mind began to pass through the veil of time, into a place from whence all things are seen, back in time, back to a previous millennium, back to the birth of Australia

I felt my consciousness leave my body and rise high above the earth. Looking down I could sense two realities, I had a sense of being high above the earth and looking down upon my lifeless body lying on the rocky cliff, I could observe a bird walking on my right arm, at the same time I was the lifeless body on the cliff, feeling and sensing that same bird walking across my arm.

As the land rose from the sea, the mountains began to form high above the plains; the Rainbow Serpent began to transform the land into a new world called Australius.

I suddenly re-entered my body and came back to the present reality, slightly dazed about what had just taken place. Gazing into my camera close by, I knew that someday when the time was right, I would write about this event.

Upon my return to the bus, Mark, our Aborigine driver informed me that I had been on sacred ground, where no one is allowed without permission. There is a $5,000 fine for that. He then looked at me, winked and said” But you had permission!”

Needless to say, the trip back to Jabiru was quite an experience, I felt like I was coming down from a tremendous high, someone remarked and wondered what I drugs I had taken. I have never taken drugs in my life, but there is nothing that could equal this feeling. The rest of the day I was rather worthless as I tried to absorb what had just transpired! I had been told several months earlier that July 7th would be a special day, being in the outback, I hadn’t even realized that today was July 7th, until now! How interesting, July 7th is the day of the Roswell crash, 42 years to the day!

What a perfect ending to our last night of camping, day broke with a Wallaby sauntering about our camp site.
