JHANNEE ON "WALK-INS"
This has been brought up with this medium on more than
one occasion. The basic theory is that a spirit can leave its body and
the body can be taken over by another spirit. This is supposed to
happen at times when death could occur - in an accident, serious
illness or operation, for instance. It has been noticed that some
people undergo some sort of character change after such occurrences and
the theory has been devised that this is caused by another spirit.
Now, the sort of occurrences I have just mentioned
can lead to an opening up to spirit. Many well-known mediums have
developed, and this applies particularly to clairvoyance, after they
have received an electric shock, having an operation under anaesthetic
is also another well-known precursor of mediumship or some sort of
development. In cases of accident or serious illness people have died
for short periods and some of them remember the events during that
period. There have been many books written on these near death
experiences as you call them. These people very often have some change
in their character. They usually will lose their fear of death, their
attitude to the material fields of their life will be changed - it will
be less important to them. They may become religious whereas before
they were not. Changes of this sort often occur - not every time, but
often. And, of course, not everyone who has died for a period will
remember these occurrences.
Now, the question we wish to look at is, what is
actually happening? The type of occurrences that I have mentioned - and
there are others, I have not given you an exhaustive list by any means
- often occur in points in the life where death could, or should, have
occurred. But, for some reason the life has been extended. This only
occurs with the agreement of the person. Not on the conscious level, of
course, you understand. And this, shall we say artificial? lengthening
of the life, the event itself, the accident, the shock, the operation,
lead to an opening into spirit. The aura at such times is weakened and
this very often has the effect of making the person sensitive to
spirit. Now, the aura doesn't stay weakened, it strengthens up as the
person recovers their full strength, but it has changed vibrations,
assuring that the spirit communicators can contact that person more
easily. So, it is not really another spirit taking over the body but it
is a stronger influence from spirit, This is arranged in conjunction
with a persons guides and helpers and so beneficial helpful spirit
contacts are being made.
Those spirits who wish to work and help the world
in beneficial ways can work this way more easily than if they were to
actually take over the physical body, because the physical body puts a
limitation on them. Immediately a spirit takes on a physical body
impressions from spirit are much weakened, they are less, and can be
shut out by the material conditions, by the distraction of material
conditions as they have arisen in your material world at present.
Some spirits wish to increase the contact between
those of you in your material world and the Spirit World. And where
there is an appropriate person to work through in this strong
overshadowing they can do so. But the person has to co-operate with
them. It is by their agreement that they work in conjunction with this
spirit and this is the process that takes place while the person is
either unconscious or in a so-called 'death state'. Some people,
naturally will refuse this arrangement. And so the character changes
after the incident will be much less. But this kind of contact with
Spirit will ALWAYS change a person in some way. But if they do not wish
such strong co-operation it may not manifest at all on the outside, but
there will be some change somewhere in a person's psyche. It may not
manifest at all to other people but it will be there. Other people are
quite happy to give full help and co-operation to Spirit. This is where
you can see it most strongly in a complete change of interest for
instance. Quite sudden and, of course, to extremes. There will be
people of varying degrees in between. But I wish to stress to you that
it is ALWAYS by agreement with the spirit that belongs to the body. If
that spirit wishes they can say "No". I wish to impress this on you
very strongly. This overshadowing only takes place after consultation
with the guides and helpers associated with the person. It is not
undertaken lightly, because each spirit inhabiting a body in the
material world has some plan for their actions in the world, and it is
only, I stress, with their agreement that it takes place, when it is a
good and beneficent spirit. Unfortunately, as you know there are
mischievous spirits and they are the ones who will try to influence
people in the material world. No, again I stress, they can only succeed
with the person's agreement and co-operation, the strong person can,
and does, refuse the contact, and this is why we prefer only people
with a strong sense of 'self ' to be involved with this movement. But
everyone who is interested will be contacted by such spirits. You see,
when you come into this kind of philosophy, your aura expands and
becomes brighter. It is like a lighthouse, and naturally, these
misguided spirits will be attracted. to it because they will know that
this is a person who has the gift of receptivity. The strong person
cannot be influenced. Always remember that you can over-ride your
guides' and helpers' wishes, and people who get too carried away with
this philosophy sometimes do so without realising that they are doing
it. They will open themselves up with no restriction, with no
discrimination as to whom they are attracting. This is one of the
reasons why we usually stress that you should not do spirit contact by
yourself. If your guides are wanting to give you information for some
reason they can always do so, but by sitting in a circle like this or
by attending a church service, you will have the protection and if a
lost or misguided soul is attracted to it, there are circumstances
there to help that spirit safely for you, sitters. There is little
danger in this philosophy for the right kind of person. And what is the
right kind of person, I can hear someone asking. The person with a
strong sense of 'self', with purpose in their life, who has a settled
environment, who will listen to warning and instructions and follow
them. The person who realises that he or she does not know it all; the
person who does NOT accept everything without questions. We have said
many times that we like newcomers to have a questioning approach - it
does not have to be a negative, destructive approach - but we do like
some questions being asked, checking things out. Now, tell me if there
is any point I have not covered?
Does anyone have a question which has been aroused
by my talk?
Georgina: How would a mischievous spirit try
to influence somebody?
Jhannee: By coming into the aura.
Georgina: And they will influence them to do
things that are not beneficial for them?
Jhannee: The usual case is - the spirit is
confused, they do not understand what they are doing. The common
situation is that the spirit has come from another society or from an
older time period, and wishes to influence the person to behave in ways
the spirit believes are the correct ways to behave and so there is a
clash between what your society expects and what the person is being
influenced to do, what is being suggested to the person to do. Always
remember that every time you think of anything spiritual your aura will
expand and light up. This is another reason for stressing that you only
do deliberate contact in the circle, and this is why we like to make
sure everyone who leaves the circle is properly disconnected.
Margaret: When you are just meditating on
your own, is there actually any danger? I always protect myself before
Jhannee: That is wise. It depends on the
type of meditation. Many of you follow meditation practices which
involve things such as chanting which do not leave you open to spirit
influence, because it is an ordered, regular set thing. It is people
who sit with an open mind. I am not sure that is clearly describing
what I mean. Not a blank mind, but with nothing 'set' in the mind.
(When) the mind is free that is when the mischievous spirit can intrude
or can attempt to intrude. It does no harm to protect yourself, to ask
your guides to keep away unwise spirit contacts. You can put light or
purple light around yourself, and should you feel that you are being
contacted by a mischievous spirit, then stop all such practices until
such time as you can ask for help from an appropriate person. It is a
good general rule to start off with a prayer. Your guides are not
generally concerned with your practices.
Marsha: Is there anything I can do to
Jhannee: So many of you people seem to be
looking ALL the time for improvement. How can you improve? You are
already a drop of Godness. What is there to improve? I am talking about
the inherent nature, not the physical manifestation.
Guy: It would seem that if a person starts
meditating that is very often in response to the prompting by guides.
Now, I am puzzled why then is it that the guides don't seem to be able
to protect that person against possible intruders.
Jhannee: They can and they do, but they can
be over-ruled by the person.
Guy: It is the sub-conscious over ruling by
the person himself?
Jhannee: Unwise acceptance. Going into these
practices too long, too frequently. Generalised enthusiasm without any
direction, without any wisdom.
Guy: In other words, the person doesn't know
why he is doing it?
Jhannee: Or what he is doing. This is one of
those instances when a little knowledge is dangerous. They read a
little, they go to a talk and they think that they know it and they
just go overboard. You have to keep it in balance.
Guy: So you could assume that anybody with a
serious intent and knowing what he is about would be pretty safe?
Jhannee: Yes. Beware of the dangers and
pit-falls and avoid them. There are many machines in your world with
instructions, it is the same kind of thing.
Ron: Today a man was blown apart by police
during an attempted robbery. Did that man have a guide?
Jhannee: Oh yes.
Ron: Where was he then?
Jhannee: Everyone has a guide, but not
everybody listens to guides.
Margaret: Not everybody would know they have
Jhannee: That is true. That man in question
is still in the equivalent of a hospital, he is only now beginning to -
well, in your world you would say he is semi-conscious - he has reached
that stage. You see, when people in your world die, the first thing
that is done by those around, they are greeted by their friends and
relations, and during that greeting we can see how they are reacting.
At first they respond to those people, but sometimes that response does
not last very long. Now, someone who has died in an accident, being
shot like that young man, it is a traumatic thing. And anyone who has
been shot or is in an accident in your world, is taken to a hospital,
and so when you pass over they remember what has happened, and they
expect to be in a hospital. So we provide one. It has the effect of
calming the person down because they are in surroundings which they
expect. It also gives us a chance to tend to them in a way which they
will accept. When you are in a hospital you expect to be surrounded by
nurses and doctors and when you see that, you are going to be receptive
to those nurses and doctors, aren't you? And this is the setting in
which the young man has been placed. He remembered what had happened,
expected to be in a hospital, and so he was. Of course, people have
other expectations and whatever they expect, we provide, because in
most cases this enables us to contact them and to explain what has
happened to them, and introduce them to their new surroundings and the
new ways they have to behave and so forth. In most cases it works very
well. There are cases where it doesn't and that is when we have a
rescue. Or somebody who understands that they have died, but for some
reason they are not receptive to their guides and they will become a
mischievous spirit. Perhaps - nothing is imposed on you in spirit. Many
people have material desires and are drawn back again to fulfil them.
Suppose you wished to be a famous singer and you couldn't be one for
some reason in the material world. When you come over here, you can. If
you sang like a bear with a sore throat but wanted to be an opera
singer when you come over here you can sing, beautifully. And you can
reach the point where you think there must be something more and you
discover that there is something more, and it is even better than what
you are providing for yourself. This is why we are not particularly
impressed with these theories of reincarnation. Everyone is so happy
and has such a good thing over here, why should they want to go back to
Ron: You are always so condescending about
this world, how do you know everyone is not happy? I think it is pretty
Jhannee: That is true.
Ron: But you always make out that it is a
bag of misery and all happiness is over there.
Jhannee: We do not intend to be quite so
depressing about it, but when you come here you will see the
Margaret: It must be much more restrictive
in a human body than it is in spirit.
Jhannee: You have to eat. You have to sleep.
To name only two things you have to do. Do you not think it would be
very nice to be whatever age you wish? You don't have to grow old. You
don't get sick. You don't get tired. You wait.
Guy: I think people who reincarnate are
driven to do so guilt.
Jhannee: That is the commonest cause. For
some reason they think they have to come back to be punished. You
don't. There's nobody sitting up there saying "You naughty boy. Go back
and learn your lesson again." You can, if you wish to.
Ron: So the fellow who was shot and had a
criminal record, he will have a good time too? That does not sound
right to me.
Jhannee: At some time you go through a life
review, and you judge yourself. And you can, as I have said, if you
wish, choose to come back, but you can stay on this side and make such
reparation as you feel is fit. You don't have to punish yourself, but
Ron: What reparation can you make in that
world, because everyone's happy?
Jhannee: You will have some regrets about
your life, and there the means of relieving those regrets, you see?
Then you will be happy. There are people on this side who come over
with their psychological problems, because what you bring over here are
the psychological things, the guilts, the regrets - all that sort of
thing, and you will be enabled to work them out. And some people will
go though their life review immediately, for others it will be delayed.
Ron: If I want to be an opera singer who
will be the audience?
Jhannee: The other spirits. You can make
music, you can act, you can write, and there will be an audience for
you. There are people who wish to be an audience for such activities.
Margaret: I'll go, everything will be free.
Jhannee: That is another thing you don't
have to worry about over here - you don't have money. That's going to
cause some problems. If you haven't got money you don't have
accountants. (Georgina is an accountant)
Georgina: There are a lot of artists who
continue to paint after death aren't there?
Jhannee: Oh, some do. Some feel they have
had enough of it and discover something else they want to investigate.
Georgina: Are many of them drawn to other
people who are trying paint and draw in this world?
Jhannee: Oh yes, some of them are.
Georgina: Is Picasso?
I think with your kind permission I will leave you
