Our personal visual reality

Two of my main questions in my search for  the truth about our reality are ; How do we know what we are seeing is the whole story? How are we accessing physical reality? I found a wonderful science TV program by David Eagleman which explained this wonderfully clearly. This enabled me to put another giant piece in my puzzle.

The answer is, of course, that it is our physical brain, via our senses, that allow us to access and interact with our reality. At the same time our senses are an illusion constructed by the brain. Information about our physical reality streams in to our brain continually in greater quantity than we are aware of. So much streams in that our brain cannot cope with it all. Our brain sifts all incoming data to look for patterns, which are then constructed into our own version of reality.

What we see through our eyes is a case in point. The Thalmus is one of the brains’ major junctions. Most sensory information connects through here on its way to the outer surface of the brain, the cortex. Data collected by the eyes stops here on its way to the visual cortex. Brain scans, however reveal that for all the information coming in to the visual cortex, there is 6X as much flowing in the opposite direction. We see reality only using information that we already have in our heads.

In everyday life the brain is continually updating the patterns in our head about what we expect to see with what is actually out there.  People in complete sensory deprivation conditions often report still seeing pictures. Our seeing, our view of the world, relies mainly on what is already in our heads rather than exclusively what is coming in. There is a dance between the outside world and our brains, the individual internal model which they have constructed. This gives us our own individual version of reality.

Not only that but individual parts of the brain process information at slightly different rates. There is said to be a time lag while this happens. The reality we do see is delayed, it is 2/10ths of a second late. This is brain edit that we are not aware of. In the end all you can say is, reality is what your brain tells you it is.

Book news

My new book, Super clues to reality, is now going to be edited, ready for publication. If you would like an advanced copy please register an interest on 7Aspects@gmail.com.

Until it is ready there will be no more weekly updates on this site, but don’t forget there is a vast archive on reality subjects available with a click of the button. These range from Angels to Zero point field. Enjoy!

Spirit guides

As well as angels looking over us, and protecting us we are also said to have have spirit guides. These are entities from the spirit worlds, those that have chosen to look over us and help us in our Earthly incarnation. Their role is slightly different from that of the angels though, although some angels do seem to act as spirit guides.

Spirit guides are more aware of your life purpose, and will help you fulfill that if possible. They may come from different sources and have different roles to play. Sometimes they are with you your entire life, some guides may just appear for a short time to help with a particular problem or life phase. They may guide spiritually or guide you through physical life choices. They may appear in dreams, send messages or feed ideas into your mind. They sometimes appear as native Indians or gurus from the Eastern religions. Some people do manage to communicate with them directly. There is someone always available for advice or guidance, whether we are aware of them or not.

Who or what are they?

-They may be loved ones who have passed over. ( I often feel my late mother giving me advice!)

-They may be ancestors that you never met but are still looking out for you.

-They be friends that have passed before you.

– They may be spirit animal guides.(My husband feels his last dog, Brutus in always there for him.)

-They may be ascended masters.

-They may be archangels.

-Some feel they are getting advice from the fairie or elemental realm.

– Some people think that Interdimensional beings, or beings from planets other than Earth that we may have been incarnated on previously, also act as guides.

Whoever they are life would be much harder without them. I have been told that Metatron, Merlin and Mary( among others) are helping look after me!



Ascended masters

This is a topic I am completely new to, it seems, at first glance, to be almost a missing link to the beginnings of an understanding of the big picture of the cosmos. Simply put, Ascended masters are believed to be spiritually enlightened beings, who in past incarnations were ordinary human beings. They have become spiritually transformed, enlightened, and choose to come back to the Earth sphere to help others along their own paths. In Other words, the Ascended Masters serve as the teachers of mankind from the realms of spirit.  They either come back as babies or inhabit existing bodies as a “walk in”. Sometimes they also act as spirit guides. Interestingly enough, some of the archangels ( ie Michael and Metatron) are thought, in some circles, to be ascended masters who have taken on angelic form.

There are thought to be, in practice, many thousands. Controversially, perhaps, in some circles Jesus, Buddha,  Quan yin, kali, and  Krishna are seen as Ascended masters rather than Gods.  Also Merlin and Mother Mary are some of the other well known candidates.

More research needed!

Happy Candlemas/Imbolc and Chinese New Year

With spring beginning to slowly emerge, the next few days are very interesting astrologically and magically. I always think that astrology is like a satnav in the heavens, built into our reality as a guidance system. Under the Chinese system, moon based, February 5th   this year is New Year. The Year of the Earth pig. Imbolc/Candlemas is the pagan celebration of the new life of spring, looking forward to the year ahead. What a wonderful combination!

Year of Earth pig

Despite common perceptions, a pig represents luck, overall good fortune, wealth, honesty, general prosperity. People born year of the pig tend to be hard working, a peace-loving person, a truthful, generous, indulgent, patient, reliable, trusting, sincere, giving, sociable person with a large sense of humour and understanding.

So despite what is going on in the world, it should hopefully be a good year. Earth pig year is a year that should be devoted to welfare of family, rest and reflection and of finishing projects. Unsurprisingly, earth years are connected with stability and the land. We will have to see!


 This is a pagan festival celebrating the stirring of new life, hope and rebirth. It is a time to let go of the past and look to the future. Another sort of New Year. It also honours Brigid the pagan goddess. Imbolc was absorbed into Christianity as Candlemas, Brigid, it is said became St Brigit.

So honour the Earth and nature, look forward to a hopefully more stable, prosperous, and peaceful year ahead.



The subject of ascended masters, part of other being in our reality with us, which I am now researching, is as with all reality subjects complex but universal. There are many slightly different points of view or variations. People often use different languages to describe the same thing.

My first question is, what is meant by ascension? I was brought up with the image of Jesus ascending, fully clothed, into heaven. We even had a day off school, Ascension day. I did not realise at the time, we were very narrowly brought up, that other masters from other cultures and religions, were also considered to have ascended. Before I continued my research my first question was what was the difference between ascension and “ordinary” passing over?

Ordinary mortals, like you and I, pass over at the point of physical death. We either believe we go back to a creator god, and our reward or punishment, or we pass through the astral plane and planes of existence, to re-join source before re-incarnating. Some still believe that we vanish into nothingness. I am sure there are other variations as well.

As I understand it ascension does not need physical death. It is a passing back up (or down), a voluntary moving on. Thus the image of a fully clothed Jesus moving upward. It is usually voluntarily leaving, or returning to, this plane for a purpose.

My next questions are, who are these ascended masters, what is their purpose, and what does their very existence indicate for the big picture of our reality?

Another layer of reality

Thought I had finished my new book…super clues to reality..then realized there was a big topic that really gave insight into the bigger picture of our reality. Well two actually. Ascended masters and spirit guides. These come under the category of  other beings in our reality with us. It is these beings that give us insights into the greater reality, and who we really are and what we are doing here.

Any information or insights greatly appreciated.

Intergalactic portals?

Editing my chapter about aliens in my new book, I realized that I had not said anything about intergalactic portals. Could there actually be portals between the worlds or dimensions? This is a fascinating, but mind blowing, concept, but is it fact or fiction? My chapter on Universal and Earth energies, after all, hinted at portal points at certain points on the surface of the Earth. These are either built into the structure of the Earth deliberately when it was formed, or are a result of diamagnetism, the interaction between gravity and the natural electromagnetic forces at certain points.

Finding out what is really going on is impossible. Rumour has it that NASA and other government agencies are researching, and even using portal points to teleport over the Earth, but also to link into intergalactic highways. They are said to be used by alien beings to visit Earth and vice versa. There is no proof that this is actually happening, but it is an intriguing concept. There are also hints of inter-dimensional portals.

I did know someone who used to claim to see beings going in and out of such portals, I would love to know of anyone else’s personal experiences of these.


The astral plane

Just editing my life after death chapter in my Superclues to reality book. I realized that I had not done enough about the astral plane. It is interesting because it brings together, on some level, the religious and non religious views of life after death.

The astral plane

The astral plane was believed by the ancients to be a plane (or dimension?) crossed by the soul in its astral or spirit body on the way to be born or on its way home after death. It is also where the angels and other immaterial beings reside.

Another, more modern, view is that it refers to whole of spirit existence where all that leave the physical body go and live their non –physical lives. It is much larger than the physical universe and is teeming with spiritual beings and spiritual worlds.

It also tunes in with the religious view of creation. It may encompass Heaven. The ancient  illustration shows God at the centre of it all

Other religions have the same concept. In Islam it is known as “The Barzakh, olam mithal”, or intermediate world. In Judaism it is known as, “The world of Yetzirah

An interesting concept embracing both ancient and modern wisdom.
