SILVER MOON ON MENTAL HEALTH
It is pleasant to be with you again. Allow me to introduce myself, I
see a new face. My name is Silver Moon and when I was in your world I
was a medicine man of the Ojibway Tribe. I have been working with this
medium in a healing capacity.
When I was in your world, in my duties as medicine man I employed many
ways of healing. I used the wild herbs, I used what you term massage,
and the laying on of hands. I also used the shamanistic approach in
which I journeyed into the Spirit World on behalf of the sick person,
to see what spirit influences there were on the illness. Sometimes I
would find what we term an attaching spirit and I could help that
spirit on its path in the Spirit World, to heal the person in the
material body. These spirits by entering someone's aura can obstruct
the flow of energy into the material body. This energy is a special
vibration of the Godness. It enters the material body at the top of
the head, moves down the spine and out through the nerves on the spine
into the other parts of the body. And an attaching spirit can cause
physical illness by interfering with the flow of this energy into the
physical body. They draw the energy into themselves which should be
going to that material body. By teaching the spirit the truth of its
whereabouts and the opportunities open to it. I was often able to move
that spirit on.
The absorption of this energy is different for those spirits who are
not in a material body. With us, we can absorb it all over, we no
longer have the shell. Our spirit bodies vibrate at a higher rate than
your material bodies. We can adjust that vibration to some degree, the
ability to do this varies from spirit to spirit. Those of us who are
working as guides need to be able to adjust our rate of vibration so
that we can match the rate of the medium so our auras can mesh and we
can speak through the medium. In time, we let go even of the spirit
body to an even finer body, the ethereal, which, itself, vibrates in
time with the vibration from the Godness. And eventually even that
body is let go and that is when the spirit merges back with the
This whole process is a gradual change, only your departure from the
physical body is sudden. After that all so-called progress in the
Spirit World is gradual. Please always understand there is only
Spirit, you are already in the Spirit World, it's just that you will
insist on focussing on the material objects. When you can focus on
spiritual aspects you will see them. The only levels that exist in the
Spirit World is in the understanding of spirits as individualised egos.
When that individualisation realises there is something else, when it
starts remembering its oneness, so it will see that state. There is
just one. Please always remember that. If you wish you can picture
that One as a mass of some kind of gas, or, if you wish, steam, which
does not have clearly defined boundaries.
As it curls up, that is, it forms what you would term, an individual
soul, in a material body. Of course, this analogy is not perfect. I
doubt if I would even describe it as 'good' but it is the closest I can
get that ties with your understanding and experience.
The material body is subject to material ills. It is but a temporary
dwelling for the spirit. Unfortunately it can impose itself and
dictate much to the spirit. As people forget or ignore the inner
spirit and its source, as people become absorbed by the conditions in
your world, so they forget. So they impose their own concepts. But it
is all change, the only thing that does not change is the underlying
Godness, the source of all. But its manifestations change. Even its
individualities can contribute to the change. That is a proof of the
source of the individuality. Look always for the source. Attempt to
tune yourself with that source. Remember that that is what is working
through you. No matter what the sphere of your life that you are
focussing on. It is still the source working through you.
These attaching spirits are clinging too strongly to the material
world, they refuse to look around for something more. Sometimes it is
only when we can bring them into a material body to experience the
difference that we can help them to understand. Each case is different
and requires a different approach. Sometimes it takes someone to enter
into the Spirit World to deal with them, because they see the person
from the material world and when that person's spirit comes into the
Spirit World, the attaching spirit sees the body and the spirit. Very
often that is what enables us to work with that spirit and help them on
Even in my time and in my culture there were those who doubted the
spirit and what came after the veil of death. And so, even then, there
were spirits needing help. They were much fewer than the spirits in
your culture today. We lived closer to the earth and more in tune with
it. There were less material things to distract our attention. Our
lives were simpler, but had their difficulties in other ways. Our life
span was shorter, mainly because we were not so attached to the world.
We could see a stronger link with spirit and its manifestations. We
understood the spirit in the mountain and the spirit in the lake, the
spirit in the trees and the animals, and in man. The teaching was
always there for those who wanted it, and only those who did not want
got into trouble in the Spirit World.
We revered those who had gone on before. There were some who thought
that these spirits always had bad intent towards those in the physical
body. It is true that some did. But by far, the majority had good
intent. And a large proportion of those were able to let go the
material world and pass on in their spirit life.
The discoveries of your world are moving into directions more out of
the larger, physical universe, and they move into the cells and
physical atoms. Your scientists are learning much and one day they
will be surprised at the conclusions which they reach. They are going
in a different direction to the one we were going in, but they will
arrive at the same conclusions. You will see the Godness in
We hope and trust that you will pass with understanding when your time
comes. Your spirits have a different quality. There will still be
work for you to do on this side to hasten your fellow spirits in their
spirit life, too.
We seek to light the flame of understanding in your heart that it may
burn like the camp fire that I remember. The smoke from the camp fire
would drift, it could be smelt from quite a distance away, so will your
spiritual understanding be spread around you and enlighten those with
whom you come in contact.
There is a short time if you wish to ask questions.
Gesella: How do spirits attach themselves to our bodies or our auras?
How do we go about it?
Silver Moon: They attach themselves only to your aura. They do not
enter your body. They enter the aura at some moment when - forgive me
I am seeking for a word - when your aura is distorted or shocked in
some way. your physical consciousness is shocked or jolted in some way,
especially in a state in which your aura is being expanded without your
understanding it. Sometimes people do this, and they do not realise
what they are doing. But they, sort of, broadcast a state of mind
rather than actual words, that can be interpreted by the spirit as
'Come to me'. It can happen in states of distress or in states of
happiness. It is in conditions in which a person over-rides their
door-keeper, the spirit who is always with you from your birth. You
can over-ride that door-keeper. Perhaps the word I am looking for is
vulnerability - a state of vulnerability when a spirit can enter your
aura. It is usually a person who does not have a strong sense of Self.
I am not talking about selfishness, but that inner sense, self-esteem
perhaps is a word you may accept. But a certain inner strength of Self
is the best protection from an attaching spirit.
Should you ever feel that for some reason, someone is trying to
influence you unduly, you can evict them. Telling them very strongly
to go away, almost rudely, and stop any spiritual activity, especially
anything such as meditation which you do by yourself. Firmly ask your
guides and helpers to protect you, to allow only right spirits to come
to you and absolutely mean this request. Busy yourself with things in
the material world, especially things which will help other people.
And, by all means, request prayers from others to protect you. But do
no other spiritual work other than attending church services, orthodox,
spiritual church services, anything except those where a heightened
state of excitement is induced in the congregation. Remember that
these are mischievous spirits, they are only attaching. There is no
such thing as an evil spirit because there is only one Spirit. Some of
the individualised spirits are mischievous, they will like to play
pranks. They will try to influence you to behave in certain ways, but
remember, how you behave in your material world is your decision. You
can go along with Spirit, embrace us if you wish, but you do not have
Does that answer your question?
Georgina: How does a person know if a spirit is attached to you?
Silver Moon: Impulses to do inappropriate things, behaviour that is
inappropriate for your society.
Gina: It is not just getting up and doing something mean. But where
you think, 'This just isn't me'.
Georgina: Does it happen very often? (I.e., an attaching spirit.)
Silver Moon: No. Perhaps to one person in a thousand. It only
becomes a serious problem when a person allows it to continue.
Georgina: Most people wouldn't know, would they?
Silver Moon: Most people would be aware of the impulses towards
inappropriate behaviour, and many will fight against it. It is the
ones who don't who get into serious trouble.
Georgina: So does the spirit often leave of its own volition if the
person doesn't follow the impulses?
Silver Moon: Yes. Especially if the person is very firm and insistent
that the spirit go.
Guy: We have in society sometimes people who we call eccentrics, people
who delight in challenging society by doing the unacceptable and
unexpected thing. Some of them are brilliant, such as artists, would
you say that some of this behaviour is due to attaching spirits?
Silver Moon: Occasionally, but more usually, it is the person's
deliberate intention to behave in that way. In the case of those who
you might term 'specially talented' people, it might be their way of
discharging 'excess energy' that they are receiving in order to exhibit
their ability. In the majority of those cases it is a deliberate
decision on the part of the person.
Guy: What proportion or percentage of people in our mental institutions
who are schizophrenics or paranoid, are suffering from attaching
Silver Moon: The schizophrenics, almost entirely. Some of the
remainder will have an attaching spirit, others are suffering a
material imbalance in the body. Those in this category who have the
attaching spirit, the attachment will be facilitated by their imbalance
in their body and being associated with a weakness in the character.
Where there is an imbalance in the body, but a strength of the inner
character, there will not be an attaching spirit. But there will be
what you term a mental illness.
Georgina: You said that people with a strong sense of 'self' don't
attract attaching spirits, so if a person does not have a strong sense
of 'self', how do they go about fostering a strong sense of 'self'?
Silver Moon: This condition usually arises during the material life.
Some of your psychologists can help, but the person has to really
understand and want to develop the strength. It can be done, but not
very often. Please understand too, that not everyone who has - its a
difficult term to give justice - not everyone who have this weakness of
character will have an attaching spirit. It is a difficult thing to
overcome. Younger people can be helped, but not the older ones because
a sense of 'self' develops from the early days in your material world.
Georgina: Well, how is a weak sense of self brought about?
Silver Moon: Unfortunate incidents in the childhood.
Georgina: Can you give an example?
Silver Moon: There are many. Being derided, neglected, not made to
feel they are wanted.
Georgina: Perhaps not honoured.
Silver Moon: Perhaps that is a good term.
I am being told that, for tonight, it is time I left. Thank you.
