Soul Connection 42 ~ The Shadows Within ~ by Theresa Crabtree


There are a growing number of people who have created the belief code that E.T.s will be coming to Earth to save humans from inevitable destruction. Although many are here to assist the human race, your only savior is you. You are fully responsible for what you choose every moment. When you place your hope on a savior, you give away your personal power. This is never a wise thing to do.

Every human on Earth has lived elsewhere before this incarnation, so essentially each of us are extra-terrestrials. We are One with the entire universe, all coming from the same Source. We are at a time in history that allows full remembrance of our spiritual nature while remaining embodied in human form.

Be not afraid when you encounter your star brothers. However, be warned that some do exist that are in sheep’s clothing. There are many humans like this, posing as your friends but having underlying motives to swindle you. Many of the experiences set up by those with unkind motives are now crumbling.

Those of lower frequencies prey on those who are gullible and live with victim tendencies.

None of them have the power to steal your soul, but they can convince you to follow their leadership. If you have eliminated the fears and beliefs that keep you blocked from direct communication with your Soul, you will never be deceived.

If you do not like the systems you as a people have set up, take steps to transform them. If you do not like the things people say or do, release your attachment to them. Everything you say or do is in your control. Take responsibility for your actions and choose thoughts that pave the path for what you desire.

Visualize the world you wish to live in, then every moment act as though it were already so. You will be amazed how quickly your thoughts will manifest your dreams. Face your fears, challenge your beliefs and live the life of your dreams.

Embrace your star brothers and sisters. Love all, no matter what Path they are walking, for in loving your enemy, you increase your vibrational level and offer the same to them. Feel gratitude for every experience and be willing to receive and share all gifts bestowed upon you, no matter how small or how grand they appear to be.

You are encouraged to share this post.

What Is Channeling?

Channeling is the process of making a sacred connection with your Higher Guides or your Higher Self to receive guidance, atonement, healing and loving.

Direct-voice channeling is a method by which the Higher Guides blend their energies with the person (channeler), who is channeling and speaks through the channel’s consciousness.

However, that is not the only form of channeling – it can take many forms. Some channel by what they create, be it music, art, gardens, the written or spoken word, joy and inspiration. We are all creator beings with the freedom to choose – to choose what we create with God’s loving that flows through and is uniquely expressed as us into the world.

There are many ways that the information can be transferred - through the channel hearing words, being shown images, the transfer of feelings or a combination of these and even through the influence of the muscular system of the channel that occurs in automatic writing.

Channeling In Ancient Times

In ancient times priestesses and priests of the temples, psychics, seers and shamans were the channelers of energies from archetypes to nature spirits to their own spirit guides.

All civilisations and cultures have one form or another of mystics providing services with their abilities to tap into different dimensions and bring through knowledge the masses were untrained to do themselves. Shamans and priests have kept this art form alive until this day.

Throughout history, many have been wrongly accused or misunderstood. This is usually as a result of fear tactics from religious teachings, because they don't want people to know they can connect with Source themselves and not just through religious leaders.

Channelers have often been accused of practising evil or demonic rituals, and in many cases in the past accused and murdered for being witches or sorcerers.

Channeling Today

Nowadays the art form of Channeling can be utilised by most anyone, whenever they desire. Channeling has undergone a major transformation in this century. Mankind's consciousness has awakened with ever advancing speed, mostly due to a revolutionary change in information technology, where now information can be accessed instantaneously across the globe, and has enabled people to be more aware of spiritual teachings around the world.

Yet more recently, in the last few years, higher frequencies of inter-galactic light entering into our solar system from source and our galactic centre, which are transforming and activating humankind's DNA, enhancing all our senses in a myriad of ways, including the ability to channel. Yet few still seem to understand what channeling really is.

Today is it no longer necessary to have a middle-person in order to bridge between a person and Source. Channeling today does not necessarily require the channel to go into an unconscious trance while channeling, and having no memory or responsibility for what comes through them.

Today's channels are being given the opportunity to realise how they are co-creators in the channeling phenomenon, being equal to the entities they channel.

Channelers are more conscious of what is occurring in their altered state and taking responsibility for their co-creation: being as clear a channel as they can be, allowing themselves to step aside in the process and allow their mentors to fully come through, and then using the channeled messages to assist in their personal growth.

What Is Channeling?

Essentially channeling is a communication between conscious beings, in our case humans, and a higher consciousness being in another dimensional frequency. We exist on this earthly third dimension, within one of many multi dimensional universes, where our physical plane is only one of several that currently exists.

We may consider that we are in the physical plane, yet the next level is the astral plane which we inhabited before our physical bodies were born and after we pass from Earth.

There are other dimensional planes our spirit also inhabits, even if we have difficulty perceiving them, as all of these planes are connected.

The actual channeling is the communication that is conducted with a spirit guide that exists in the astral plane. Although in theory, channeling can be performed with any consciousness that lives in the astral plane or higher plane of existence, it usually done with someone that has a strong connection with the person on Earth.

In order to make the connection, a channeler is generally needed to help bring the spirit into contact with our plane. However, this form of communication may be more accurately described as "mediumship", which overlaps the art of channeling.

Channeling may also come in the form of relaying information telepathically from a mentor without being in a full trance.

The Difference Between Channeling And Mediumship

An important distinction must also be realized between channeling and mediumship.

Channeling is when you are primarily providing a service of counseling, teaching or healing for yourself and others.

Mediumship is primarily providing a service to spiritual entities, who have their specific agendas.

Both mediumship and channeling are done by finely tuning into a specific dial on the electromagnetic frequency spectrum (similar to a radio), allowing connection to other parts of ourselves, to Source or other entities.

One may be a medium or a channel; some people are both. The purpose of channeling is to receive more love and knowledge.

Other Methods of Channeling

Some channels may keep their eyes open or closed or move around while channeling, depending on the channel and the form the channeling takes.

There are channels who speak, write, dance, play or compose music, create artwork or new technology, or do healing. Some channels are multi-channels, meaning they can do several different forms of channeling with ease and expertise.

When we daydream and have visions, whilst reading, watching a film, meditating, working or indeed anything we are creating, that we are passionately focusing our attention on, as though time doesn't seem to exist. In this zone we find ourselves in, we can say that we are channeling, as in that moment we are being open to receiving and in a slightly altered state of consciousness, tuning into something specific.

Channeling As An Art Form

To determine if what you are channeling, or listening to from a channeler, is a clear channeling representing the Source, and how we can benefit from channeling.

So, channeling is an art form that opens up creativity and greater possibilities for ourselves through the doorway of love and imagination - which is the doorway to more wisdom and Source.

Through channeling we open up to new realms of awareness and perspectives. We are more connected with the universality of life. And we can use it to create whatever we desire.

As a service, channeling requires and brings the openness to love, trust, and the ability and desire to receive. It also requires and affords more focus, intent, clarity, discretion and self-knowledge and self-respect, and is an on-going process. And in turn, when done properly and clearly, brings all more teaching, love, energy, clarity, focus, inspiration, empowerment, alternatives, compassion, sovereignty, joy, wisdom, increased abundance and much growth.

Benefits Of Channeling

The real benefit of channeling is to gain higher knowledge, which is generally outside this plane of existence, in order to better understand our own lives on Earth.

Channeling enables ourselves to open and connect to our own higher self (our true essence),to Source, or by allowing a loving teaching entity to express itself through us.

This type of entity's focus is to share wisdom, knowledge, counselling assistance, healing, self-empowerment, and other forms of creativity that benefits the channel as well as the whole of humanity.

Channeling is a sharing of energies, a creation of new energies, and a mirroring process wherein the channeler, the audience and even the being that is channeled are receiving much from the process.

Channeling is like a triangle: two energies connecting, coming together, creating a third through their relationship.

Channeling brings a unique insight to a person so that they can make more informed decisions about what they need to do.

We are stepping into the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and end of what has been before (since the birth of this planet and human history) and into the New Alpha and Omega, the New Beginning.
In the last weeks, I have had many things coming up which needed to be released, and a lot had to do with the COLLECTIVE Clearing and Cleansing – thus not so much my own soul’s clearing and cleansing, but that of the collective.
C.G. Jung called it the collective subconscious mind- I call it the collective cellular memory banks of humankind, since the Tree of Life was taken away from humankind.
The Tree of Live itself is often misunderstood and misinterpreted by human beings, as being a type of Tree of Knowledge or Good Evil.  What is truth humanity lost, was their co-creatorship with the Divine, because they abused their powers, and they did not adhere to the Divine Cosmic Laws, on which the whole firmaments rest cosmically – indeed the whole Creation rests upon these Laws, which regulate the forms and structures of all life and life forms, indeed the WHOLE OF CREATION.  There are many tiers of these Laws, but when adhered to it brings balance, harmony, order, peace.
In truth the Tree of Life, is a Cosmic Superconscious Energy Matrix Field, which does contain all Knowledge, Technology, and Wisdom all levels of Creation and it holds the 7 and 12 Sacred Fires, the Fires Letters of Amrita, the Lost Yod (Finger of God/Goddess) Fire knowledge, the knowledge of the Crystal Pyramids and Pyramid Crystalline Energy Power Grids, the Lost Knowledge of Ancient Ones pertaining to the All-Knowing, All-Seeing, and the All-trinity Triad Knowledge, with the original Adam Kadman Knowledge as held in the original cellular memory of the first volunteer races on earth, as I have recorded in my new book “Why I was born in Africa:  the previously unrecorded history of Elysium and the Lion Kingdom”.
With this lost knowledge comes the Phi and PSI(Y) energies, as the Phi holds ONLY ONE COMPONENT of energy and sacred Golden Mean.  The PSI Counterpart, the FEMININE aspect and all the mathematical equations and the Sacred Geometries and all knowledge contained therein was REMOVED from the Planet by the Divine Feminine, when she withdrew her knowledge and technology from the planet, with the downfall of Atlantis.
We cannot regain the knowledge of the Pyramids and how they truly functioned, without the Psi component, for the Phi, in itself is powerless, if not balanced by the Psi, as there is always balance cosmically.  When the Masculine and Feminine are balancing each other out, the THIRD AND MIGHTY FORCES COSMICALLY ARE RELEASED.
More than this with lost the Keys and Codes to unlock the Knowledge held within the 7thSun of Illumination and we also lost our cosmic citizenship in the aftermath of all the destruction humankind wreaked.
More than this we have not regained the full use of our 12 bodies, and only now are starting to remember the use of the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual and to some extend soul bodies, but have not even touched on the activating the full 12 body system, which will enable us to teleport at will, to become visible and invisible, and to shapeshift into any energy form we wish to.
It is only when the use of the 12-body system is fully activated that we can truly step into the full co-creatorship again.
We are now stepping into the time, when the collective memory banks of intense trauma and pain, caused by the destruction of Elysium, the Lion Kingdom, Avalon, Mu, Lemuria and Atlantis left on the imprint of this the memory bank.
In as much as each one of us does the inner releasing work, practice forgiveness for ourselves and others, and expand this across societies, across seeming global divisions we cannot heal collectively.
All the souls involved with these lost continents have now returned en-masse, to finally master the collective Karmic Patterns of self-destruction, and to regain the full cosmic Mastery, of co-creatorship, where one has attained a high degree of Mastery of the SELF, before one can assist the Collective to heal.

Each one of us is as much responsible for the SELF AS WE ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE COLLECTIVE.

In truth there are no THEY nor THE OTHERS – we are all one and the same.

The Cosmic Divine Law of the ONE AND THE MANY apply here.

The One is the Many and the Many is the One.

We must reclaim our responsibility and heal what was collectively destructed, BEFORE we are all finally freed up to fully live in the New Golden Age.

The Only Entrepreneurship Lesson You Need (with Do/Don’t Reading List)

When I was first getting into entrepreneurship, I asked Mark Cuban what he read or studied to learn how to start and build businesses. His response:
“Experience. It’s the only reliable teacher I’ve ever had. No books ever captured what it’s really like. You just gotta do it.”
Mark’s smarter than me on most things, but on this, I think he’s wrong.
Sort of.
Yes, experience is crucial, of course. And yes, most of the reading on entrepreneurship is pretty worthless.
BUT, after investing in 80+ companies and starting several of my own and reading nearly everything there is about entrepreneurship, I think there is not only a clear method to doing entrepreneurship right, I think there are a few things you can read that can teach you that method.
Reading is NEVER a replacement for doing, but reading can be how you figure out where to start.
I’m going to tell you what those entrepreneurship lessons are, and precisely where you can read them.

The Only Entrepreneurship Lesson You Need, in 3 Parts

You need three things to create a successful startup: to start with good people, to make something customers actually want, and to spend as little money as possible. Most startups that fail do it because they fail at one of these. A startup that does all three will probably succeed.
I can’t sum it up any better than that. Lemme break down each three:

1. Start With Great People:

So many people skip over this, and I can see why — it’s hard to understand how crucially important people are to business until you’ve tried to build one with bad people.
The difference between a good co-founder and an average co-founder is the difference between chicken salad and chicken shit. I have experienced this many times in my life; in fact, there’ve been times where I was the average (or bad) co-founder, and I ruined a great idea.
So what are you looking for in a great co-founder (or founding team)?
Basically, your core founding team must be people who get shit done.
Paul Graham likes to talk about it in terms of finding people who are resourceful and determined. Sounds simple to understand, and it is. But not super easy to find those people. Most people say they are like that. The reality is that they WANT to be like that, but aren’t.
How do you tell if someone is resourceful and determined? Pretty easy actually: just look at what they’ve done in their life that showed resourcefulness and determination. Past behavior is a great predictor of future behavior.
No matter who you are and where you start in life, you can display those attributes. If you start poor and disenfranchised, you have a ton of opportunities to show them; basically, your whole life is using determination to overcome obstacles with few resources.
If you start rich and privileged, you can show these attributes as well, just in different ways. For example, by learning a lot of new things, by taking advantage of the opportunities in front of you, and by creating things from those resources you have.
The people who have shown these traits PRIOR to working with you are the people you want to build things with.
Once you have product-market fit, then the emotional intelligence of the leaders, as much as the resourcefulness of the team, is what impacts success.
NOTE: We literally just went through this in our company, and in fact I had to fire myself because I got it wrong.

2. Make Something People Want:

The most common mistake I see from founders is that they think they need a great idea. This is completely wrong.
Ideas aren’t worth shit. And “great ideas” are usually worth even less. Why? Because startups are not about ideas. They’re about solving problems.
Sear this into your brain:
A startup’s only purpose is to find a commercially viable solution to a real human problem.
This is what “make something people want” actually means.
“I like to find (a) simple solutions (b) to overlooked problems © that actually need to be solved, and (d) deliver them as informally as possible, (e) starting with a very crude version 1, then (f) iterating rapidly.”
Marc Andreessen outs it in the most succinct way:
“The only thing that matters is getting to product-market fit.”
What is product-market fit? Andreessen says:
“Product/market fit means being in a good market with a product that can satisfy that market…The life of any startup can be divided into two parts — before product/market fit and after product-market fit…When you are before product-market fit, focus obsessively on getting to product-market fit.
Do whatever is required to get to product/market fit. Including changing out people, rewriting your product, moving into a different market, telling customers no when you don’t want to, telling customers yes when you don’t want to, raising that fourth round of highly dilutive venture capital — whatever is required.”
You don’t have a business until you have a sustainable and repeatable model for bringing in users and turning them into active (paying) customers, and the only real way to do this is to make something people want.
Make sure you fall in love with solving a problem, and not your idea or your solution. Because if you care about solving the problem, then you can keep trying things until you…make something people want.
There’s NEVER been a better time in history to start a company. You just can’t make it more complicated than it is:
Start with a real problem first, then keep trying solutions until you have made something people want, as evidenced by people using (and buying) it.
Now, ideas DO matter, of course. But ideas are easy to come up with when you understand they only matter when applied to solving real problems. And there are SO MANY problems to solve everywhere.
If you can’t find a problem to solve, this post outlines the best tactics I have seen, and this one is really good, and this one is very good as well. But the reality is, if you don’t see any problems that need to be solved, maybe you shouldn’t be an entrepreneur.

3. Spend As Little Money As Possible:

I would frame this as “avoid mistakes,” but I understand why Paul Graham called it “spend as little money as possible.”
He’s assuming that spending money faster than you make it is the BIGGEST MISTAKE a startup can make — and he’s right.
Why? Because spending money too fast (especially in venture backed companies, which is almost exclusively the type of company Paul deals with) is a signal of poor thinking and poor decision making, which is pretty much impossible to overcome. If you are spending as little money as possible, it forces you to be resourceful and focus ONLY on the things that matter — which first and foremost is achieving product-market fit, and then selling.
If you’re spending as little money as possible, then you’re probably going to be fine, because it gives you time to solve all the other mistakes you inevitably make.
But that is NOT the only mistake you can make as an early stage startup, and being cheap doesn’t solve all your problems. What are other common mistakes to avoid? This piece outlines many of the biggest mistakes that founders make, and this one covers most of the same ground, but some different, but most of those reduce down to not having #1, a good team, or #2, product-market fit, on this list.
If you just spend as little as possible, you have time to fix #1 and #2.

There’s Only One Thing To Do Now: Go Build

These are the only three fundamental lessons you need to start a startup:
1. Begin with great people: resourceful and determined
2. Make something people want, by solving their problems
3. Spend as little money as possible, so you have time to find solutions and fix mistakes
That’s it.
Once you know these fundamentals, and use them to guide your decision-making, there’s nothing left to do except exactly what Mark Cuban said — start building.
If you feel the need to read more about startups, don’t. Start building.
If you really want to read more, read this quote, also from Paul Graham:
“The way to succeed in a startup is not to be an expert on startups, but to be an expert on your users and the problem you’re solving for them.”
People want to make this complicated, so they can avoid doing the emotionally hard work of taking a risk to build something that might fail. There is no way to avoid that risk, except to not start a company.
Either go build something people want, or work for someone who has done that — but don’t spend any more time “learning” how to be an entrepreneur. Learning is great, but spend that time learning about the problem you are trying to solve, and then you’ll actually build something.

Best Reading List On The Entrepreneurship Fundamentals

I’ve told you that Mark Cuban is (basically) right, and you don’t need to read anything beyond what is above.
That being said, I did not listen to him (because I’m an idiot). I read EVERYTHING on startups and entrepreneurship (at least it feels like everything). And I’ll tell you what I think about all of it, so you don’t need to read it all:
How To Start A Startup: (Videos and Reading List): This is a pretty amazing class and set of resources. If they put this together as a video course, they could charge 5k and people would buy it without blinking. But they gave it away for free, and it’s great. Highly recommend, but much of it is not necessary until you’ve achieved product-market fit.
The @Pmarca Guide To Startups: This is 9 blog posts. About 70 pages. Maybe two hours of reading. And you don’t even need to read the whole thing because reading Part 1 and Part 4 is 90% of the value of reading it — at least prior to product-market fit.
Paul Graham’s essays: These are pretty uniformly great. Paul is a precise and rigorous thinker and he has a talent for making things clear that most people get confused about. If you don’t care about software, you can skip most of them, but the ones on startups are all really good. Most of the advice in this piece came from these pieces (I linked them above as well):
NOTE: All of the above resources suffer from a critical problem — they only focus on the Silicon Valley, VC backed model of a startups. It’s a great model for startups, and has added an incredible amount of value to the world, but I think the Silicon Valley VC model does NOT work well for most startup ideas.

Good, But Only If You Need To Supplement Specific Skills:

The Cook And The Chef: Maybe the best thing I’ve ever seen about truly thinking from first principles and beginner’s mind, at least in the context of business. Not crucial to read, but really really good read, especially if you have problems coming up with ideas.
The Four Steps To Epiphany & The Lean Startup: I generally recommend these books together. They are a really good guide to coming up with good startup ideas and then, most importantly, testing them and iterating on the tests. If you need a more step-by-step guide to coming up with ideas and testing them, there is not much better than these two books together.

Good, But Don’t Read Until AFTER You Have Product-Market Fit:

Same Side Selling: There is not a better book about selling that I know of. Read this, absorb all of it, and make it your total sales philosophy. Selling is always key to everything in startups (even with great products), but only once product-market fit is achieved.
The Hard Thing About Hard Things: A really good book about managing and thinking and dealing with your emotions as a leader. Well done, but don’t read until you have product-market fit.
Rework: What I love about this book is that it keeps you focused on what matters, and nothing else. Plus, it advocates a non-VC model, which is a good balance.
Influence: You must eventually learn about marketing and persuasion. This is a good book. I don’t think it’s the best possible, but it’s the best I’ve seen (the best book I can imagine about this topic doesn’t exist yet). I usually do NOT recommend founders get crazy with marketing too early, because the way many founders do marketing is often a crutch founders use to cover bad product-market fit.
Strategyzer series: The two books in this series, Business Model Generationand Value Proposition Design are really good. I put these last because you should ONLY read them in your spare time, not BEFORE you start a company. It’ll fuck you all up if you read it before. Too much info. Keep it simple. This is the grad course.
Zero To One: Let me say, this is a very good book, but I honestly think it is confusing and distracting for most beginning entrepreneurs. I think it’s great for people studying business theory, great for executives and business leaders, and really great for founders once they have a company that is up and running, to learn about strategy and how to think about business. If you want to read it, please do, but it’s not essential to start.
The Startup Playbook: This is packed with good wisdom. Not as comprehensively actionable as I’d like, but good lessons in here. Lots about the fundamentals.

The DO NOT Read List

I see a ton of book lists about entrepreneurship that are total bullshit, so I’m also going to also publish a DO NOT READ list. Every book on this list is commonly recommended to entrepreneurs, and I have read all of them, and most should be avoided:
Good To Great: Possibly the worst business book you could ever read. Jim Collins studied great companies, then created a narrative to explain them — except it was all made up. Like if I told you that since everyone who eats carrots dies, then carrots are deadly. Total bullshit. Ignore.
The Innovator’s Dilemma: An interesting book and a business school classic — which should be a MAJOR red flag for anyone trying to START a business. If you care about Disruption Theory (which this book first explains), I would recommend reading Ben Thompson’s stuff on Aggregation Theory. I personally think he’s right and Clayton is wrong. But again, NONE of it matters to a startup founder in the trenches.
Creativity, Inc: I love Pixar, but Ed is just really bad at storytelling (ironically) and at understanding what is actually relevant and important. I really wanted to love this book, but it’s just not very good for entrepreneurs.
48 Laws Of Power: I love this book, but I don’t think it’s all that useful for building a business. Building a business is ultimately about creating value. 48 Laws is about how to take things, not create them. It’s great for learning how to navigate office politics though.
Delivering Happiness: It’s solid, Tony’s a smart dude, but light on real tactics and not truly relevant to most startups. More for a corporate crowd I think.
Steve Jobs: You aren’t Steve Jobs. You shouldn’t try to copy him. This book will not help you be who you need to be to succeed.
The Art Of War: I LOVE this book, but again, not relevant on a day to day basis for most entrepreneurs.
The E-Myth (and its variants): It’s about small business and has a lot of sketchy advice in it. Ignore.
The Fountainhead: Or Atlas Shrugged. Or any Ayn Rand book. I am not even going to make a comment on her philosophy — I don’t care. But I promise there is nothing in here that will ever help you actually start or build a business. It will help you fantasize…which doesn’t help build. And it’s no mistake that the largest concentration of Radians are in politics and finance — two industries built on destruction and taking, not on building.
Thinking, Fast And Slow: A great book. Totally unnecessary to read to start and run a business.
Outliers: Or anything by Malcolm Gladwell. I don’t want to start a Gladwell debate, but I see his writing like fast food; fun while you’re doing it, does nothing to actually make you better.
Losing My Virginity: Or really any of the Richard Branson books. He’s a great guy and has done amazing things, but he is TERRIBLE at actually understanding what it is he does. He’s a great example of a doer who doesn’t know how to tell you what he does, he just does it naturally.
Anything by Gary Vaynerchuck: Gary’s a really nice guy and really smart, but I feel like most of his stuff is rah-rah inspiration and energy. It’s for people who haven’t started, or are trying to find that courage. Not totally, but 80% of it is geared towards those people, not directly operating entrepreneurs.
Anything by Guy Kawasaki: Skip it. I’ve never met anyone serious who reads his stuff, and the only people I’ve ever heard talk about him are wantrapreneurs. He takes the best ideas from other people, dumbs them down, and pretends he came up with the idea.
