Resonance experiment #3
(Note: I’ve been busy for several weeks putting together an ITC-related video for a conference in Italy next month, so it’s been quiet here on the blog. Thanks for your patience. I was invited to the conference in L’Aquila but explained that I no longer give presentations, then had an idea to develop a short video about ITC, with Italian subtitles, that could be presented at the conference… after which I could do a live Q&A via Skype, from here in Colorado. We’ll see how that works…. —MM)
During 20 years of reflection on messages our INIT group received from Timestream spirit group (especially messages from The Seven ethereal beings), I’ve been trying to develop a sense of what those 7 “gatekeepers” between heaven and earth really see as they observe us humans on Earth, and what they consider to be our role and responsibilities in ITC.
I’ve been trying to figure out what they expect us to do on this side of the bridge before that bridge can become as functional and free-flowing as it was in the early years of INIT (1995-1998).
How They View Us
As The Seven and other ethereal beings observe ITC researchers on Earth, I think they see a lot of mixed feelings among us… a general chaos that typifies life on Earth.
On one hand they see friendship, trust, love, inspiration, and sincerity as we work together and share our results and feelings with each other and with the public. That was the ambience of INIT in the early years, and I think it was also the ambience of The Big Circle of moms getting in touch with their late kids and networking through Tom and Lisa Butler’s group, and (I suspect) the Scole Experimental Group in England in the early years.
On the other hand the ethereal beings see our shadow side or savage side flare up from time to time. They see us get irritated by another researcher’s random comments… and get defensive when skeptics call us dishonest or delusional. They see us envy an especially good contact received by someone else… and worry about confused or troubled spirits impacting our work… and suffer from chronic frustration in the face of a modern scientific bureaucracy that totally denies the validity of our work.
The ethereal beings see our light side and our shadow side… our noble side and our savage side. They see our earthy human nature.
What They Expect of Us
Over the years our INIT group received lots of hints about what they needed from us, from our side of the bridge, to help keep conditions stable… in order to sustain a clear contact field that would allow ITC contacts to flow through our telephones, TVs, radios, computers, and other equipment.
While there may be many factors, they all seem to boil down to two:
- an ITC disposition (what spirit friend Yang Fudse calls “an emotional lance” and what reader Mac calls physical mediumship), and
- “being of one mind” among a team of researchers.
I believe that The Seven ethereal beings started giving us humans a hint of ITC’s possibilities late last century by working closely with spirits on the third level, in collaboration with a few specially gifted researchers, including Bill O’Neil, Marcello Bacci, Hans-Otto Koenig, Klaus Schreiber, Maggy Fischbach, and Adolf Homes.
In the early 1990s they took the next step, telling Maggy in Luxembourg that the next phase of ITC would require researchers of one mind coming together as an organization or network. Hence the formation of INIT. The Seven ethereals expended much time and effort keeping that bridge open and functional so that we could get the full flavor of ITC’s possibilities.
I believe they were serious about that stipulation (researchers working together with one mind), knowing that it would be a monumental challenge for us humans, and also trusting that some of us humans on Earth, someday, will be able to meet the challenge. Until then, the full, ripe fruits of ITC will remain elusive to us.
Meanwhile, they continue to support the work of the original pioneers still alive (Bacci, Koenig… ), but I believe their main ITC interest is the next phase… supporting an international, intercultural team of researchers on Earth who can make the effort to work together in a unified way by contending with their fears, doubts, envy, egos, and suspicions well enough to work together in genuine friendship, trust, and good will.
That will involve a lot of self-reflection and inner work by everyone involved in the project.
I believe that the spirits at the third level, including Timestream, are waiting patiently for their friends on Earth to rise to the occasion, because they realize the ethereal facilitators are holding back on their wisdom, energy, and bridge-making power until we can learn to be a resonant force.
How Important Is a Clear Mission?
So how important is a clear mission statement for an ITC group in the future?
Maybe each of us ITC researchers could do some self-reflecting on this point: What’s our personal goal with our work? What are we really trying to achieve?… for ourself?… for the world?….
I remember the founding members of INIT included members who seemed committed to making the world a better place (Guenter Emde and Theo Locher), or broadening science to include spiritual understanding (Ralf Determeyer and Hans Luethi), or inspiring the public with afterlife knowledge (Irma Weisen and me), or reconciling mind and spirit (Nils Jacobson). I suspect all INIT members shared some or all of those aspirations, along with other desires such as getting a better technical understanding of how ITC works, or contacting departed loved ones, or alleviating other survivors’ grief….
So, again, if you wished to join an ITC group, why? What would be motivating you? What do you think you’d like to see achieved?
Maybe if we all start thinking about that, then when the time comes to form an ITC group, we’ll be able to “be of one mind” as we forge a mission statement for the group… and the mission statement would help ensure that we remain of one mind.
