An excerpt from a book which is a compilation of communications thought to be from beings in other dimensions.
This excerpt is on the nature of mediumship, or what is sometimes referred to as a ‘sixth sense’.
The concepts that have been referred to in the previous two chapters are a form of mediumship. Mediumship is the working of a frequency, the tuning of your antenna so that you can reach a vibration that is normally beyond your normal five senses. You can reach an area of sixth sense. This is comprised of hearing, seeing and sensing, but not seeing with the benefit of the eyes, seeing moreover with the benefit of feeling, because pictures are transported by feelings. Indeed, that is how you may see them, in the mind of what you may call your imagination, or the mind of what you may call your consciousness.
And so, I want you to take on board the theory that the first step of mediumship is understanding that what you see, whether it be with your eyes or with your deeper, inner vision is a product of feeling. And if you do not feel and you do not respond you will not see. That is a simple form of mediumship that will help you to make your way through the material plane in whichever way you see it.
And then, of course, the second way is conscious awareness. That simply means becoming conscious of what you are seeing through sensitivity. You see, an animal may observe itself in a mirror but will not realise that it is an animal itself – it will think that the image in the mirror is another animal – it will merely want to play. But as you, as human beings, are able to become consciously aware of yourself, so therefore conscious awareness is the second phase of mediumship.
Those feelings are mainly confined to your Earthly existence, but there is a third form too, and that form is where you are able to attune to the frequency of what we shall refer to as ‘the outer realms’. Dear friends, us, of course – us. All of those who have slipped into the veil of gas, the veil of non-material, shall we call it? It is easier to understand it that way. If I was to call it Savannah or Nirvana it would only be terminology, so I am going to call it ‘the realm of gas’. The realm of a sort of material matter, but only a visual one – oh, let’s call it ‘the realm of surreality.’
