I SPENT most of my professional career as a geography professor researching and writing about travel and tourism development.
Since my retirement, my interests have shifted, but I still occasionally write about travel and tourism, and this is where you can find those articles in one place.
This article does not talk specifically about travel and tourism, but is instead focused on the COVID-19 Pandemic. However, the theory discussed comes from my earlier work on tourism resilience.
The collection of articles is organized in 5 parts:
(1) About Me and My Channeling
(2) Questions (from readers) & Answers (from my guides)
(3) Voice Channeled Messages (from my guides)
(4) Lucid Channeled Messages (dreams + meditations)
(5) Automatic Writing Messages
All of the articles below are written by me.
I only recently started answering question from other people related to my channeled message. In fact the article “Am I On the Right Path?” was the first time that I had channeled in front of anyone other than my wife. That one was voiced channeled. …
ME: I am seeking a message that is in my highest and best interest. Blessings to all who hear this message.
[The following is an edited version of the original response I received, the recording of which is linked below.]
MY ENERGY GROUP: Hello Alan. It is nice to connect with you again.
You are seeking a message that is in your highest and best interest, and in the highest and best interest of all humanity, of your entire planet. For you and your planet are one in the same thing.
That is true for every being, because every being…
Ask any group of people what they would be doing if they had no limits of time and money, and almost every one of them will say “travel” — to see the world.
This apparently fundamental human desire to travel is reflected in the steady and unstoppable growth in the numbers of international travelers since the end of World War II (up to 2020 and the global pandemic), which peaked in “overtourism” impacts in some of the more popular destinations around the globe.
“To carry the self forward and illuminate myriad things is delusion.
That myriad things come forth and illuminate the self is awakening.“
— Dogen, in ‘Genjokoan’
I LOVE this saying from Zen Master Dogen (1200–1253 CE). I interpret these two lines as …
To experience and act in the world with the idea that “I” am at the center of acting and experiencing is delusion.
This is because it assumes that the “I” (meaning my outer ego personality) at the center of the world is my true self. It assumes that the world that my ego personality is experiencing is…
I can offer a few comments from my guides. Please note that these come from our perspective and others may have different perspectives. No perspective is inherently right or wrong. What is most important is what resonates with you at this moment.
You can consider that your mother is now in a higher dimension (4th or 5th?) or lighter density reality. So you cannot expect to relate to her in the same way that you would relate to someone in the 3rd Dimension.
The relationship that you can develop with her now is one that is similar to how people…
THERE ARE a whole diversity of paths. Every person has their own path. Every individual that is incarnated in this dimension, and any other dimension, has their own path that they have chosen, that their soul has chosen for that incarnation.
There are also longer paths and shorter paths to be experienced.
One of the major reasons that people, and beings of all kinds, incarnate on Earth is because of the diversity that it offers — the diversity of experiences from what you call “good” to “bad”. …
The Soul (Sat), Consciousness (Chit), and Love (Ananda) underlie everything in existence.
QUESTION: I know that All is One, all are infinite manifestations of Consciousness. I also know that only Love is real. What is the relationship/connection between Consciousness and Love? The same? Just semantics?
ANSWER: Thanks for your interesting question. This is my perspective, or I should say “our perspective”, as this is a collaboration between my physical self and my higher self Energy Group.
Keep in mind that others might see things differently and that does not mean that they or we are wrong. It is simply different…
I FOLLOW several large New Age spirituality groups on Facebook. They help to inform the topics that I write about, and I use them to share my Medium articles. Most all of the groups are growing by leaps and bounds, indicating to me, at least the growing popularity of New Age spirituality these days.
The largest group has 195,000 followers as I write this, and seems to be adding about 2000 new members each week! There are probably larger groups than this on Facebook, but of the ones that I am interested in, this huge.
Below is an informal list…
A channeled message from my Energy Group.
ME: I’m seeking a message that is in my highest and best interest at this moment point in time. Blessings to all who hear this message.
MY ENERGY GROUP:
Welcome to 2021. Welcome to the 4th Dimension.
A lot of people are looking around this very first week of 2021 and feeling that they live in unprecedented times, although the times are not necessarily unprecedented, anymore than any other time…
