A number of people have been asking me how Robert Leichtman could interview Edgar Cayce in 1978 if he died in 1945. Leichtman’s medium was channeling the transitioned Cayce.
(Concluded from Part 2.)
Like Matthew Ward, Silver Birch “was asked [to serve as a teacher] – I did not choose [it] in the first place.” (1) He tells us that he required a circle to complete his mission.
“Our world is very highly organised, it is far more organised than ever you have thought possible, and to perform this task requires a miniature organisation. You know by name some of the members of this band, who incidentally are a most retiring assortment of people, because each time I seek to thrust them forward, they always stand back and say, ‘You go ahead.’” (2)
One has to be able to attract the workers to one’s group.
“Now you cannot get your group, your band, unless it is attracted to you for the work’s sake and you have reached that degree of evolution which gives you the power of attraction.” (3)
Moreover, as one evolves, beings of higher and higher development use the circle to impart knowledge, he says.
“I, whom you call Silver Birch, represent only a small portion of the knowledge that belongs to the infinity of the spheres. As you grow, other teachers greater than I can use me to impart knowledge and wisdom to you.” (4)
The unfoldment of the medium or channel also results in changes to the spirit circle.
“As you strive for unfoldment, that quality, the psyche, the spiritual, call it what you will, unfolds and there is a closer co-operation between the instrument and the guides who work with him.
“The attunement is higher, finer and closer. The rays blend into one state of beauteous harmony and, when that stage reaches its zenith, the whole band of my world and the instrument of yours become as one in unity.
“The nearer you are to that state of achievement, the higher and the greater and more powerful rays that belong to our spheres can be used through the band of guides and the instrument.” (5)
“We are part of a vast spirit organization,” Silver Birch tells us. (6) His own band is part of that larger organization and is itself not small, as he relates to us. Moreover, the mixture of nationalities and epochs corroborates the kind of mix that Imperator described in his own circle.
“Hundreds upon hundreds are assembled here, each with a mission to perform…
“That vast concourse belongs to all peoples and nations, to the present and to the past. There are prophets, seers, sages, wise men of the East and the West, of high and low estate, philosophers of Greece and Rome, Syria, Chaldea, Persia and Babylon, mingled with those of later generations from Italy, France and Germany. They exchange their knowledge and focus it all so that it shall be at your service.” (7)
So Silver Birch’s descriptions of his spirit circle line up with many of the things that Imperator has said.
Many people think that Edgar Cayce went into trance and spoke from his higher Self. But in fact, many spirits also collaborated with him, just as with Imperator and Silver Birch. Robert Leichtman interviewed him in the late 1970s. He told Leichtman:
“None of the material that came from my voice when I was in trance and was so carefully written out, copied and preserved, was my own thinking. It was that of one of my friends on the invisible side of things.” (8)
He describes some of those who spoke through him:
“The interesting thing about my work that you may be fortunate enough finally to get into print is that many of the people who spoke through me identified themselves by name. You have met Michael, who was my major friend in spirit in that lifetime. Fletcher also spoke through me, but with a different name. There was a time when even you spoke through me. I am talking about a period of time before you were born as Robert Leichtman.” (9)
Given that Cayce was a strong Christian in a conservative community, he did not feel he could identify some that spoke through him such as Helena Blavatsky.
“At times there were twenty to forty beings who would come in and speak. They identified themselves by name, whether it was their actual name or not. I was fortunate to entertain Madame Blavatsky for a short period of time. Much of the material on Atlantis came through her. She did not come through with that name, though – she used another. …
“At the time I was doing my work it would have been a bit shocking for someone to come in and announce that she was Madame Blavtatksy.” (10)
So even Edgar Cayce was part of a circle of spirit communicators rather than being the sole source of what he passed along to his visitors and patients.
SaLuSa of Sirius
SaLuSa has been one of our most reliable sources on what is happening at this time of Ascension and especially what the galactics are doing. But he acknowledges that he is part of a team representing the Galactic Federation of Light. His team is made up of separate communicators, but it’s probable that he and they also channel higher entities.
“I am SaLuSa from Sirius, and I along with my companions represent the Galactic Federation where contact with you is concerned.” (11)
“I … speak more as the collective voice for our group, while the Galactic Federation have many individuals making contact all over the world.” (12)
Diane of Sirius, one of his colleagues, explains that “SaLuSa embodies the energy of our group.” (13)
There are many other discussions of the mechanics of spirit communication circles from people whose interests lay more in the communication of information from departed ones to their relatives on Earth, but I think the point has been made.
We tend to think of Matthew Ward or SaLuSa or Edgar Cayce as lone communicators, or at most spokespeople, but the level of cooperation and integration is much higher than that, though usually unknown to us.
