The reality of of what we see (or do not see).

As someone fascinated by the nature of our reality, I talk and interact regularly with people who see a variety of phenomena from auras to angels, fairies, ghosts and aliens and beyond. I personally see nothing. The question is often asked, If there are other beings in our reality with us, why cannot we all see them?

The answer is that as human beings we are limited. We are limited by the variable quality of our sense organs and how our individual consciousness’s organizes and makes sense of  the input which these sense organs feed to it.

How do we see things

We see things, of course, with our eyes.  Simply put, light enters in though our pupil, is focused by our lenses and hits the back of the retina. There are two types of photoreceptors in the human retina, rods and cones.

The retina transforms the image received via the rods and cones into electrical impulses that are carried by the optic nerve to the brain. The brain then makes sense of what it sees. For instance, the image is actually inverted and the brain shows it to us the right way up.

Why don’t we all see the same thing?

There are several reasons for that.

Firstly, physically, our eyes are all slightly different.  Whilst following a standard pattern, the detail of each individual pair of eyes will vary, according to our genetics. Not only the colour varies but the quality of each individual part may vary too. We all do see things differently. We see colour differently, the number and quality of our rods and cones vary. Some people are short sighted or long sighted. Some people have amazing clear vision and others do not see well at all.

Secondly, we are bombarded with images continually. To survive in this world our brain has to make sense of these. Who is moving towards us? What distance are things away from us? What is this object I am seeing? Our brain actually edits. If it cannot recognize a object,  it will search your memory or data base to find out what it may be. It may just show you the nearest thing to what it recognizes which may not be actually, in that form, there at all. This happens in a split second. We all do see things differently. We do see the edited version, according to our brain. There may be something that you could see around you, but your brain/consciousness does not recognize it and edits it out.

Thirdly, we only see the images of the wave lengths of light that our physical eyes are set up to register. Beings around us who are vibrating at a higher frequency may just not visible to us. Some people with a more sensitive set of rods and cones ( or a more sensitive consciousness) may glimpse them.

Fourthly, some people, by using meditation or other methods, may actually transcend the limitations of the human eyes and the human standard brain. They may actually see what is around them. They may even get glimpses of other dimensional beings. Once the brain has the pattern for these other images, of course, they may be able to see them when not necessarily in an altered state.

Aspects of Reality

There are many other beings in our reality with us.Whether or not we can see them depends on the individual quality of our physical eyes and the editing ability of our brain/consciousness.



Teslas’s truth

We think we are on the cutting edge of understanding what lies behind our reality, especially in terms of science.I am always fascinated to realize that many in previous centuries grasped fundamental principles about our existence even though they did not have the language or science to back their assertions up. For instance, Plato and his world of shadows (holographic universe?).

Most remarkable in our time though is Nikola Tesla. I have posted about him at length before. He was writing, thinking and inventing over 100 years ago. Some of his ideas are just now coming into fruition.

I found this quote which may have seemed strange when he wrote it, but is now spot on with current quantum mechanics.

“If you want to find the secrets of the universe think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration”
Nikola Tesla

Aspects of reality

All that there is in our reality is a factor of energy, frequency and vibration.

The Reality of I ching

When looking at all the aspects of the forces that interact to give us this reality, I am always fascinated by what I call the great satnavs. That is, those disciplines such as astrology and numerology etc which seem to have been put there to help and guide us to make the most of our lives. The question is then, why are they there? Does this indicate a pre planned or designed existence ( indicating a designer of some sort) ? Or are they just encoded in the physical mathematics of the random construction of the universe. Of course, if we are just holograms in computer simulation as some people suspect, they may just be part of our programing.

Anyway, in filling in my gaps I noticed that one of those that I had not mentioned was the discipline of I Ching.

I Ching

Also known as Book of Changes, this divination tool is thought, by some, to be one of the oldest books in the world. It is a book of wisdom, embracing and distilling ancient thought and the philosophies of Taoism and Confucianism. Every thing is seen as a balance between Ying and Yang, the opposite and complimentary forces in the world.

To access this oracle you must have a question that you want answered firmly in your minds.  Then you can either cast Yarrow sticks (50) in quite a complicated ritual or more simply with 3 coins. The thought is that either the book itself or some other universal power will guide your choice. This is quite a complicated process as with the numbers cast indicating old or young ying or yang, being used to build up charts or hexagrams. These are actually consist of two trigrams or sets of 3.  The meaning the of  hexagram  comes from the interaction between these trigrams. For instance Heaven is three short horizontal lines in a stack. Fire is one horizontal line with broken line above topped with another horizontal line. Heaven above fire means T’UNG JEN – companionship. Fire above heaven is TA YU – abundance.


There are 64 possible hexagrams and the interpretations do vary slightly according to which translation used. There is also something else called moving lines. If you throw something called old yang or old ying (certain numbers or combinations) these refer to the concept of change. Other hexagrams may have to be drawn to interpret these properly. So quite a complicated interpretation requiring a good level of skill or practice.

Some people, of course, just open the book at random and take their answer from that. I do know of  people who would not dream of starting a new enterprise without consulting the I Ching first!

Aspects of Reality

I ching can be seen as one of the great Satnavs, a guidance system to help uses through life. Why is should be there, or why it works so well is another intriguing aspect of our reality.


A question about the reality of time again

One of the concepts that we take for granted in our reality is that of linear time. As a concept it is almost never questioned. We actually perceive our reality, our lives as biological beings, though the lens of this linear time.

Would it surprise you to know that although we see it as linear and even, there are a whole lot of doubts that that is actually the case? How often to we feel that it contracts, expands or even sometimes seems to repeat itself?

I came across a quote/question  on Facebook the other day.Nassim Haramein said words to the effect “Without memory there is no time”. On one level, of course, he is correct. Our understanding of time relies on the mechanism of memory. We know that there is a past present and future. At base it is more complex than that though.

Surprisingly, science is actually split on the subject. There are two main theories on the real nature of time. Firstly that it is in fact linear, secondly that everything happens simultaneously, and as humans we just perceive it to be linear. Also, if it is seen as just another force in the universe, it may flex as other forces flex around it.

So what seems a straight forward taken for granted thing is actually more uncertain and questionable than we realize on a day to day basis.

Aspect of reality

Although we seem to  live life according to linear time it may be an illusion.




Chinese astrology

Astrology is one of what I call  the great SATNAVS which seem either to have been put there to guide us by a designer of some sort, or just to be a factor of the mathematical construction of the universe.

Unlike western astrology, Chinese astrology is based on the cycles of the moon. It is another very rich and complex system.  Buddha is said to have called all the animals to him. Only 12 came. These were the rat, ox, tiger, cat/rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, sheep/goat, monkey, rooster, dog and pig. Each was given a year to express its personality.  If you are born in a particular year you share the animal characteristics.

For instance, the Sheep year is one of peace, diplomacy and humanitarianism. The arts and love are both well devoured. Also the Rat and Ox both appreciate hard work. Rat at a project’s inception, and Ox as it goes through to completion. It may then be auspicious to start building projects in a Rat year and have Rats working for you at the beginning of a project.

So it is a matter of the year in general and your birth year animal in particular. Some years are thus more auspicious than others, depending on what you want to do that year.  As animals you may be compatible or incompatible with people that you interact with. Tigers can have problems with monkeys and be compatible with dogs and horses. Horoscopes can be very important for marriage and partnerships. They will often be looked at to see if the marriage will be auspicious.

As the lunar cycle does not fit exactly with the solar calendar, the Chinese new year begins on a different date in January or February each year.

For individuals then the significance lies on the interplay between their birth year animal and that of the particular year in question. Your own birth animal year should provide the best opportunities for you to flourish. Each month also relates to one of the symbolic animals. The variable calendar does make this harder to quantify though.

To complicate matters each year also has one of 5 elements associated with it. Wood, fire, earth, metal and water. Each element last for two years. First showing ying and then the yang, positive and negative characteristic of every element. For instance, fire is energy and excitement but can be dangerous. Each animal year then has an element attached which may alter its characteristics. A wooden sheep year may be different from a fire sheep year.

Chinese astrology is  differently based from western astrology, but just as complex and seems to be just as accurate. The skill of the practitioner is vital in proper interpretation.

Aspect of reality

As ever, I ask not does this work in practice, but why should it work? What does it say for the underlying structure of the universe that it exists at all?

Healing with Reiki

“Reiki is a system of energy healing which was developed in Japan in the early 20th century.  It channels spiritual energy to help harmonise body, mind and spirit. It uses “universal life energy” which is channelled through the practitioner to the recipient. (The energy can be known by different names.  In addition to “universal life energy” it can also be called God, spirit or any higher power of your own beliefs).

The whole universe comprises and radiates energy.  I use the term universal energy because it is the energy which animates all living things.  Reiki allows you to tap into and benefit from these energies.

Recipients lie fully clothed on a treatment table (or they can be seated).  The healer gently places his hands on the head and body.  A treatment can last an hour or longer depending on what is required.  Most practitioners use the twelve traditional hand positions and commonly a full treatment is given covering all the important organs of the body.
There is very little or no hand pressure making it ideal for treating all ages and conditions. Sometimes hands are even held away from the body. The energy flows wherever it is required and can normally be felt as a warm sensation or tingling in the body. Receiving Reiki is a very relaxing and soothing experience!

Reiki can be used for many ailments like reducing anxiety and stress, relieving pain, headaches, stomach upsets, back problems, asthma – respiratory problems, PMT, menstrual problems, sinus, and many more.  Practitioners are taught that Reiki should never be used instead of medical treatment, but should be used as a compliment and a way to become and remain healthy.  It is becoming a frequently common practice to use both Reiki and a similar procedure, therapeutic healing, in hospitals, care homes and hospices because of the perceived benefit.  The Complimentary Natural Therapy Healthcare which is recognised by Government maintains a register of fully qualified and bona fide practitioners which for referrals by medical professionals. ”


Aspects of Reality

1- That there is a universal energy source that healers use to heal. This suffuses and animates all living things.

2-We are not just physical bodies. We have a spirit body which healing tunes up, allowing the physical body to re balance


Exciting news

For all those who are wondering why I have not posted lately, the answer is that I am embarking on a whole new upgrade of my site.

Not only will you be able to access the reality topics you are interested in more easily, but I will be also seeking to cover the topics in more depth.

I have exciting original research planned already.

Watch this new look web site is coming soon.


The reality of Communion

whitleyHave just re-read Whitley Striber’s book, Communion. First published in 1987, describing his interaction with, and abductions by, grey aliens. Although 30 years old, it still has important points to make. What I find most interesting is his doubts, even as the bizarre things, abductions  and aliens around his bed, are happening to him. He thinks he may be going mad or the experience may be coming from his subconscious mind.

He feels he interacts with 4 Grey species. The small common ones, which he believes may  have a hive mind. Certainly they sometimes appear to move as one. Some now believe these to be clones. The others, whilst looking vaguely human like, albeit slender, give him an insect like sense. All have these vast, dark eyes. One individual in particular that communicates with him and he has a sense of having always interacting with her, says she is very old. She reminds him of the goddess Ishtar.

Where do they come from? He gives a list of possibilities, some of which I have not considered before. These all indicate different aspects or truths about our reality.

Aspects of reality

They may have come

  • From another planet or planets
  • From Earth- but so different from us that we had not up until now understood that they were real.
  • From another aspect of space time or dimension.
  • From this dimension in space but not time
  • From within us- we are creating them with our minds.
  •  The phenomena may be just a side effect of natural phenomena..certain magnetic frequencies tripping a certain hallucinatory wire in the mind.
  •  They may be just another aspect of the human species.

There seems to be more general awareness of the phenomena lately, but in the field of official acknowledgement nothing seems to have changed. As he says, “If visitors are here they are orchestrating our awareness of them very carefully.”


The Reality of my superclues

zero point fieldI have given, and refined, my talk SUPER CLUES TO REALITY, many times to various groups and organizations. It always seems to go well. A couple of weeks ago I talked to Christchurch Rainbow group.  I quote their review below, as it actually summarizes the important points in my talk that underpin  my quest to understand the true nature of our reality.

“Our last meeting was an evening with Marian Matthews. This was an extremely interesting and thought provoking talk which has helped many to be more aware of the nature of our Reality.
Marian talked about Quantum Mechanics and how our sub atomic physical construction can explain many phenomena. 

She explained how we are made of vibrating pockets of energy. The Universe itself is also made of energy. The Universe is and Quantum theory states that all energy is interconnected so as we are all energy beings we are all, at a fundamental level interconnected. This explains many things!

Marian also talked about the famous particle experiment and how particles such as photons pass one at a time through a screen containing two slits. When the electrons were observed they acted like Particles. However when not observed, they acted as waves and particles simultaneously. This  has huge implications about some other “force” involved.

She also talked about our thoughts  being just bio energy and how some people can override the filters that are in place in our consciousness/brain by meditation or just be naturally more sensitive and see beyond the physical body.

We and those no longer incarnate are all connected by our soul energies anyway, the oneness of being. Those over riding the physical filters can connect communicate & blend with those who have passed over into the next realm and this is known as mediumship.

We have both a physical body and a spirit body which actually extends beyond the physical. At the lower level spirit body helps co-ordinate the physical. There is a cross over one does affect the other. They are both energy but the spirit body is finer and higher.

It is a known fact now in the medical profession that some part of our consciousness lives on after death. Southampton University sponsored an experiment which proved there was awareness after the patient has clinically died. Hospitals placed items on shelves high up in operation theatres and wrote  on the lamp above the bed so that if someone reported leaving their body floating up above etc they were then asked if they could see what was placed or written on the lamp. The results were that some were able to say what they had seen so proving that an awareness or consciousness had survived.

Marian talked about healing and how energy( from a universal energy stream) is pulled into the spirit body via the chakras and healers using this energy, are able to balance up the chakras and this then can transfer across to the physical body. This outside energy is able to retune the body to correct imbalances.

Marian also talked about how “Sat Nav” sciences as she called them such as Numerology and Astrology seem to be so accurate at predicting our personality, who we are and our predestined life paths and how palmistry reveals our life path and nature of whom we are in our palms. Does this mean each and everyone has a blue print set in place and we have our lives pre planned before we are born?

We would like to thank Marian for a wonderful evening which glimpsed beyond and expanded on the 7 Super Clues to reveal an amazing possible version of the nature of our reality. This definitely made you stop in your tracks and think about things with an increased awareness.”

Thanks marilyn.

The reality of Information exchange

ashtar-luciferJust had a wonderful information exchange with a dear friend about Lord Ashtar and the Galactic federation. I always share any information that I have gleaned with anyone who asks. So do most of my friends. Some people have indeed been superb in sending me links (thanks Richard). I am always surprised and disappointed when people who I had always thought of as one of the “good guys” refuse to share “their” information. Just remember that we are all in this together. The only way we will make sense of reality and defeat the forces working against is us to share and link up. What is out there belongs to us all.
