My friend Kimberly sent me this fantastic article about a book written by Dr. Robert Lanza voted 3rd most important scientist alive by the NY Times.
Lanza stats that consciousness creates the material Universe and that consciousness does not die when the physical body ceases to exist. WE know this, but it is great to hear a scientist concur. One day in the distant future our scientific paradigm will concur with metaphysics!
My teachers told me that the soul exists on the astral plane above the physical plane. When there is a close alignment at a point in time between the soul's energetic blueprint and the blueprint on earth, it can manifest a physical body. This is why the planetary alignments at the time and location of birth describe the soul in question.
We must have a physical body to exist on the earth plane, but the soul continues to exist on the astral plane above while we function on earth. The human brain and body interact with the soul through electromagnetism (positive, masculine energy of the Sun and receptive, feminine energy of the Moon). This is why an assessment of a person's Sun and Moon in their chart provides insight into vitality and longevity. They are, however, not the only indicators.
Lanza goes on to state that multiple Universes can exist simultaneously. WE know this because of our experiences connecting with those who have left the earth plane but continue their journeys elsewhere. WE also know this because of our experiences channeling from Spirit.
Here is a great quote from the article:
"Our souls are in fact constructed from the very fabric of the universe - and may have existed since the beginning of time. Our brains are just receivers and amplifiers for the proto-consciousness that is intrinsic to the fabric of space-time. So is there really a part of your consciousness that is non-material and will live on after the death of your physical body?"
