Searching For the Past

Journey to enlightenment

Searching beyond conventional wisdom. Open new avenues in your spiritual search.

Written by Gary Wonning

I will never forget my first past life regression.

I had been searching for spiritual meaning for quite some time, what the church was teaching just didn’t seem to answer all my questions, there seemed to be something missing, it wasn’t that I didn’t believe church doctrine, but there had to be more.

I had been sensing that there was really life after death, not the life most of us had bought into, but a real life on real planet earth, I had seen visions of my living in a different time and place, a time before the twentieth century.

It was time to investigate.

As I read the local paper one evening, I came upon an ad a local hypnotist had placed, the ad said he could cure smoking with hypnotism, my interest was peaked. I had read how people had undergone hypnosis and recalled lives they led in a time before this one. 

This was new uncharted territory and it took some time before I mustered up the courage to call him. 

Finally , I decided I could delay it no longer, this was something I had to do, regardless of the outcome. 

My wife and I had been having some marital issues, and I thought that perhaps I could find answers that would help solve the issues we were having. 

Talking with Tom, he stated he had only done three past life sessions, that didn’t peak my confidence any, but decided to do it anyway, what did I have to lose? 

The session went quite well, I regressed  to two lifetimes I  sensed having lived. One was in ancient Egypt and one lifetime was during th American Revolution. 

After overcoming my initial shock of the reality of it all, I began to realize that is was the only thing that ever made sense to me, it answered all the questions I had about why people do and think the things they do and think. 

If people carry these memories over from lifetime to lifetime, I could understand why we feel about certain people the way we do. If we remember how we related to people in the past and how they related to us , that would explain many of our relationships today.  

It wold also help us understand people of different ethnic and sexual preferences , if we realized at some period , we may have lived as  a different gender, race, or sexual orientation, it wold be hard to have any ill feelings toward those people today. 

I couldn’t wait to share what I had learned, I thought many people would be overjoyed at this new knowledge. 

Boy, was I wrong, my wife thought I had finally gone off the deep end and needed psychiatric help, a couple of the friends I had shared what I was planning on doing never believed a word of what I said. 

Man! What a let down. How I could I be so thrilled at what I discovered, the truth I had been seeking when everyone else was not only not interested but couldn’t comprehend anything I had experienced, and didn’t seem to care?

It didn’t deter me, I keep studying and learning, and over the years I have for the most part encountered the same response from those I have shared the knowledge  with.

Most people are stuck in their own little box, regardless of how open minded they proclaim to be, there are certain boundaries they won’t cross.

I have discovered the knowledge we acquire, especially in this field, is for our own spiritual growth and in many times no one else. They are on their own path and they will learn in their own time.

Sedona: Journal of Emergence

The portals of Sedona

Written by Gary Wonning

After my initial experience in Sedona, I needed to learn more. At that period in time there was no Internet; information was much harder to come by.

My aunt had never encountered anything as she encountered with me and had no idea what was going on.

The only information I had was a brochure from an art gallery in Sedona. Other than that brochure the only thing I could find was the American Indians considered Sedona sacred land.

As soon as I arrived home I called the art gallery, the nice lady directed me to the editor of the magazine “Sedona Emergence,” which at that time was a small publication of just a few pages, today it is a monthly magazine of several pages and contains article from some of the top writers in the field of metaphysics. 

I contacted Marlene the publisher and relayed to her my story of my encounter at Bell Rock. I was slightly surprised when she informed me those things happen all the time.

She asked me to send her an article about the encounter and said she would include it in the next publication, and as compensation, she would send me a free copy.

I immediately typed an article about y experience at Bell Rock and sent it to her, a few weeks later I received the promised magazine.

We Are Where We Are

The portals of Sedona

Several years ago, I visited Lookout Mountain in Tennessee with my then teenage daughters.

Waiting in line at one of the attractions we saw a sign which said, “You are Here'”

We wondered out loud how “they” knew we were here. This was in the day before security cameras.

And then we wondered who “they” were.

As we travel through life, the experiences we encounter change us and if we let them, they change us for  the better. 

my life began at an early age, my parents bought a run down farm when I was three years old.  Originally, dad wanted to buy a different farm that was in better condition than the one we settled on. 

Dad’s uncle who was a banker, wouldn’t give dad the money for a farm dad wanted to buy. He said we couldn’t make any money there. In reality we could have make more money there than  at the farm my parents eventually settled.

The farm my parents bought was run down and the land was very poor. We barely raised enough corn the first year to replace the seed needed to plant the crop. To increase the fertility of the land, my parents began raising turkeys, not only were they sold a a good profit, their manure was high in nitrogen, rebuilding the fertility of soil very quickly. 

Years later, while visiting Arizona, we discovered in a past life we had once lived near Cottonwood as Anasazi Indians and were farmer/ gatherers. In those days, the American Indians would live in an area until all the game and fish were gone, the soil depleted then move on to greener pastures.  They did not, as many would have you believe care for the environment. They didn’t belong to the Sierra Club or PETA. 

Because my parents bought an old run down farm and brought it back to being a productive piece of land, they were able to repay a karmic debt, so dad’s uncle actually did him a favor, things always work out as they should. 

There is always plan to life , we are where we are, and where we need to be.

Why Do We Incarnate Over and Over Again?

Written by Gary Wonning

There can be and are many reasons to reincarnate. The reasons and need would vary according to the individual soul.

We would think most would choose not  to leave the comfort zone of the in between life and not decode t enter the duality of our world where positive and negative energies exist and often time conflict with each other. 

Without entering the earth reality, the soul doesn’t have the opportunity to evolve into higher levels of energy and thus develop a  higher level of consciousness. With out experiencing lives of pain and suffering, the soul only knows happiness and can only advance at a lower rate or not at all.

A person may feel lonely or experience suffering because they feel, consciously or subconsciously, they have done something wrong in the past and need to repay a previous karmic debt , either to themselves or to someone else.  therefore they feel a need to reincarnate to balance out the scales of what they did in a previous life.  

By continuously reincarnating we keep adding much need life experience to our repertoire, experiences that can only be added by so-called negative experiences. We do gain much needed insight though our happiness experiences, but much life knowledge can only be gained through the school of hard knocks. 

It is through our trials and tribulations we learn the most. 

You chose to come here through your own free will and accord, and you chose to live the life you are living, make the most of it. 

Learn your lessons well in the  school house of earth.

Sedona: Some of the Interesting People In Sedona

Written by Gary Wonning

Many people live and visit Sedona every year.

They come from all walks of life and many times see and experience things they never imagined would be possible.

They have seen a side of life many of us never have an opportunity to observe. Their experiences give them a different perspective than we may have, even though we cannot understand or comprehend their point of view, that doesn’t make their knowledge invalid or out of the realm of possibility.

We were once at a private party with a group of people we vaguely knew. One of the gentleman present would go out into the desert at night and take a photo of the empty night sky, when he processed the film there would be lights in the sky that came from an unknown origin.

This was well documented and many people over time, had been with him when it actually happened.

As I conversed with them that evening I noticed they all had a necklace with what looked like a dream catcher with a miniature spare plug in the middle. The necklace seemed interesting and in it’s own way was very unique.

As I questioned them about it, I was told it was a transponder; since this was  shortly before the new millennial, they all felt that at midnight on New Year’s Eve,  the top would come off of Bell Rock, the extraterrestrials would emerge and with this necklace, the people wearing the necklace would be  able to communicate with them.

Obviously, this never happened, but who can say, maybe in  the future, an event like this will come about, and maybe some piece of jewelry would be necessary to communicate, who knows?

In this universe, with all the infinite possibilities, anything can be possible.
