Seth Speaks . . .

Who is Seth?

Lately, I've been thinking about this book, SETH SPEAKS by Jane Roberts. I first read it about twenty years ago. A friend had read the book and highly recommended it. 

The book begins, "I do not have a physical body, yet I am writing this book." When I read this line, I couldn't help asking myself, if my friend found this book in the fiction section. How could a ghost, spirit write a book? Obviously I had to keep reading.

In case you have not heard of Seth or Jane Roberts, allow me to reference some information from Wikipedia. Please keep an open mind.

In late 1963, Roberts and Butts, living in the Elmira, New York area, experimented with a Ouija board as part of Roberts' research for a book on extra-sensory perception. According to Roberts and Butts, on December 2, 1963 they began to receive coherent messages from a male personality who eventually identified himself as Seth. Soon after, Roberts reported that she was hearing the messages in her head. She began to dictate the messages instead of using the Ouija board, and she eventually abandoned the board.

Roberts described the process of writing the Seth books as entering a trance state. She said Seth would assume control of her body and speak through her, while her husband wrote down the words she spoke. They referred to such episodes as "readings" or "sessions".

"For 21 years until Roberts' death in 1984 (with a one-year hiatus due to her final illness), Roberts held regular trance sessions in which she spoke on behalf of Seth. Butts served as stenographer, taking the messages down in home-made shorthand, and recording some sessions. The messages from Seth channeled through Roberts consisted mostly of monologues on a wide variety of topics. They were published by Prentice-Hall under the collective title Seth Material."

Explaining Physical Manifestation 

There was something that Seth said that I have always remembered. "You create your own reality." I know this is not a new concept but he explained it in a way that I had never heard before.

These are his words, "Each thought or emotion therefore exists as electromagnetic energy units or as a combination of these under certain conditions and often with the help of coordinate points, they emerge into the building blocks of physical matter. This emergence of matter occurs as a neutral result regardless of the nature of any given thought  or emotion. Mental images accompanied with strong emotion, are blueprints therefore upon which a corresponding physical object, or condition, or event, will in your terms appear."

"The intensity of the feeling or thought or mental image is therefore, the important element in determining its subsequent physical manifestation.

The intensity is the core about which the electromagnetic energy units are formed. In your terms, the more intense the core, the sooner the physical materialization. This would apply whether the mental image was a fearful one or a joyful one. Now there is a very important problem here: if your turn of mind is very intense and you think in vivid mental emotional images, these will be swiftly formed into physical events. If you are also of highly pessimistic , given to thoughts and feelings of potential disaster, then these thoughts will quite faithfully reproduced in experience."
Seth Speaks by Jane Roberts

“Your beliefs form reality. Your individual beliefs and your joint beliefs. Now the intensity of a belief is extremely important...

And, if you believe, in very simple terms, that people mean you well, and will treat you kindly, they will. And, if you believe that the world is against you, then so it will be in your experience. And, if you believe...IF YOU BELIEVE THAT YOU WILL BEGIN TO DETERIORATE AT 22, then so you shall.

And, if you believe that you are poor, and always will be, then so your experience will so prove to you. Your beliefs meet you in the face when you look in the mirror. They form your image. You cannot escape your beliefs. They are, however, the method by which you create your experience.

It is important that you here realize that you are not at the mercy of the unexplainable, that you are not at the mercy of events over which you have no control whether those events are psychological events or physical ones, in your terms.

Let's see if understand this. When your emotions are strong, your thoughts can can make physical objects, or conditions, or events.

Changing Your Reality

As I have told you, there is little difference if you believe that your present life is caused by incidents in your early infancy or by past lives over which equally you feel you have no control. Your events, your lives, your experiences, are caused by your present beliefs. Change the beliefs and your life changes.” Seth

Is Seth a motivational speaker? It sounds to me like he is an expert on the Law of Attraction and physical manifestation of our thoughts.
