Demonic Possesion Prevention Tips for Liberals
From TRANSMISSION A Meditation For The New Age By Benjamin Creme http://www.TransmissionMeditation.org
....There is this major difference between true mental (spiritual or soul) telepathy and the more common psychic senstitivity: the latter receives its information (its channelling)from some level of the astral planes. The information or teaching received is, therefore, subject to the illusory nature of those planes (the planes of illusion) and is always, more or less, a distortion of reality. True mental telepathy on the other hand is the direct communication between two fully conscious, focused minds, using the plane of "mind" as the medium through which to make contact. It is really the demonstration of a soul faculty. It is deliberate, instantaneous, and infallible.
The Masters work only from the soul level and use this form of contact between Themselves and those disciples whose mental polarization is sufficiently developed to allow it. There are various degrees of contact and types of relationship between Masters and disciples; this can run all the way from infrequent (and, on the part of the disciple, unconscious) impression, to a moment-to-moment spiritual overshadowing which stops just short of obsession. In this way the disciple's free will is not infringed. Obsession is the method used by the Lords of Materiality (as in the case of Hitler, for example). The Disciple Jesus was deeply overshadowed - but not obsessed - by Maitreya the Christ.
QUESTION: Could you contrast your view of overshadowing with the Biblical view of demonic possession?
They are opposite sides of a coin. There are Masters of the Black Lodge and Masters of the Light. The Masters of whom I am speaking, like the Master Jesus and the Master Morya, for example, Masters of the Hierarchy, are the workers in Light. They work on the consciousness levels with the soul and with their disciples through various processes relating to the science of impression, the impression of ideas and energy. This ranges all the way from the subtlest kind of mental or astral impression to overshadowing. Overshadowing can be partial and temporary, or more or less total and long term. It can go all the way from the overshadowing of the mental or astral body through the soul to the complete take-over of the physical body. It is a process whereby a more advanced being can manifest some (or all) of his consciousness through a being of lesser degree.
A clear example is the overshadowing of the disciple Jesus by the Christ. The Christ remained in the Himalayas while His conciousness took over and worked through the body of Jesus. This is the classical method for the manifestation of Avatars or Teachers. In no sense was this demonic possession. When the Christ took over the body of Jesus at the Baptism, He did so with the full knowledge, co-operation and assent of the Master Jesus Himself (who was then the disciple Jesus). When the Buddha took over the body of the Prince Gautama, He did so, likewise, with the full consent, approval and co-operation of the Prince. Their free will was never infringed.
With the Black Lodge, on the other hand, this is not the case, and the method of total obsession is often used. On the lower astral planes of this planet, entities exist who do take over the bodies of those who leave themselves open and who have a similarity of vibration. That is demonic possession. It is totally unconscious; there is no conscious design from the point of view of one possesed, and it is, of course, a total infringement of the free will of the individual. It is highly dangerous; to avoid it, keep your vibrational rate at a level above that at which possession can take place.
Spiritual overshadowing takes place either at the Monadic or the soul level. Maitreya the Christ, is overshadowed at the Monadic level by a Cosmic Avatar called the spirit of Peace or Equilibrium (in much the same way as He overshadowed Jesus). This spiritual overshadowing, which is an extension of the principle of telepathy, is of quite another order than the usual, spiritualistic overshadowing of a medium by some discarnate entity on the astral planes.
Question: Do the so-called "forces of darkness" ever impersonate or disguise themselves as the forces of good in order to deceive the well-intentioned, to subvert their intentions? If so, how can we avoid being thus deceived?
Yes. This is a common ploy by the forces of materiality. They often imitate the methods used by the Hierarchy of Light to snare the unwary. The best defense against deception is to examine carefully one's motives and to keep them pure and altruistic. The forces of darkness cannot work or influence where the light and love of the soul dominates the actions. Objectivity and selflessness are the keynotes of soul-inspired actions and ideas. When this is the case, one is automatically protected.
Question: Is my very fear of this a result of "dark force" activities?
No, it is a common fear. The best thing, to my mind, is to forget entirely the "dark forces" - proceed as if they did not exist - and thus give them no energy....
