Happy Birthday to Jane Roberts! She was born on May 8, 1929 and would’ve been 88 years old today. I came across Jane Roberts and her book Seth Speaks after a brief mention of her in an Esther Hicks (Abraham) book I own. Hicks heard of Jane Roberts and Seth as soon as she began her own channeling experience. Sadly, Roberts passed away before Hicks could meet her.
I stamped Seth Speaks with a five-star rating for its extensive coverage of on my favorite New Age subjects: higher consciousness and multi-dimensional realities. Seth Speaks also sinks into deeper esoteric information about reincarnating souls, lost civilizations, and the concept of God. Some chapters are lighter to read than others. The dense chapters mad me stop and question what I read. Fans of channeled readings, New Age thought, and The Secret may have fun with this book. I’m glad I own a copy of Seth Speaks.
Jane Roberts was an average writer from upper state New York. She had no interest in any new age concepts. One day, her life changed:
“My psychic initiation really began on evening in September 1963, however as I sat writing poetry. Suddenly my consciousness left my body, and my mind was barraged by ideas that were astonishing and new to me at the time. On return to my body, I discovered that my hands had produced an automatic script, explaining many of the concepts that I’d been given. The notes were even titled — The Physical Universe as Idea Construction.” -Jane Roberts, Seth Speaks
This is no ordinary case of a muse awakening a writer during writer’s block. Roberts had her first experience with Seth, a spiritual energy personality. She became a full-time channeler and hosted sessions for people to attend Seth’s speakings. Robert Butts, Jane Roberts’ husband, recorded the sessions. Most of them are compiled into Seth Speaks.
Seth writes and speaks through Jane Roberts to reveal our true identities. We are powerful, co-creating beings. Our purpose is to learn and control our infinite creative energy in this physical dimension. This may take a while for first time readers to understand.
The main subject of Seth Speaks is the creation of reality. According to Seth, everybody has a part in creating their own realities. Your reality is a mirror of your thoughts. If you encounter constant beauty and goodness in your life, that’s the quality of the thoughts in your head. Same goes for the awful events you may encounter in your life. It’s all a reflection of your inner world.
Now, I’ve always wondered if there was more to this physical world especially after watching The Matrix. There is something odd about this reality. I feel something vital is missing. Our only reality has to be more than what we absorbed from mass media. It has to come from somewhere higher than our simple minds can conceive.
Seth states matter comes from thought and thought is a part of consciousness. Therefore, everything we see and feel comes from thought. A sandwich is an example of thought manifested into matter.
It had to come from somewhere before being eaten. You have to create an image of that scrumptious sandwich in your mind then prepare and blend the ingredients to replicate the idea. Boom, you have manifested a sandwich into physical existence!
Furthermore, Seth mentions our thoughts can manifest in different realities. Your current existing reality is only a speck in an infinite universe of realities. Let’s say you’re a high school senior contemplating to attend a certain college. You’ve been accepted to three: your humble hometown community college, a prestigious private institution, and a lively, highly reputable art school. The thoughts of yourself in these vastly different colleges have already manifested in alternate realities. The college reality you choose will be the only one that manifests. The other two realities are nonexistent in your reality but exist in realities parallel to your own.
Seth Speaks is an amazing mystical book. A higher dimensional being is telling you are a god capable of creating new worlds with your mind.
Isn’t that sweet?
The book is only an iceberg tip of larger “higher-consciousness” information. Books like Seth Speaks are the reasons why I love reading so much.
Have you read Seth Speaks or any other Seth Book?
