Crossing A Bridge In Time

 

I keep saying I would like to take "a breather" away from the site but every time I do another experience comes along for which I am asked to pass along!

This experience was very new to me as it occurred in real time while I was walking across a bridge and not while I was meditating or trying to envision something.

Please take a moment to experience this with me and picture yourself in my shoes as I walk and see if you can feel the emotions, feel the energy flowing and actually feel like you are there with me.

As enlightened and awakened individuals spiritually you were all there with me, now as I type picture yourself actually there and experiencing the moment with me.

This experience occurred last Wednesday (12 Jan 2011), so take a deep breath, relax your body, clear your mind and follow along with me, ask the same questions as I ask them and listen for the answer

James

As the small boat pulled-up alongside the dock just passed the big railway bridge that we just passed under I started to climb out and onto the dock, the area around the bridge is no different than any other small little town anywhere in the world. However the history of this small village goes back 60 years or more. As I walked up the stairs leading to the start of this bridge there are already many tourists gathered around taking photos of one thing or another.

On my right I see a young man using an old-fashioned axe to carve out the locations of the rails on a sleeper. The work crews are busy working on the bridge rails and sleepers for they are looking very old and tired and need to be replaced.

The weather is nice, very hazy and the humidity is beginning to climb, it is the edge of the jungle so I guess it is to be expected.

As I reach the level of the bridge another image begins to emerge, the buildings in the town are beginning to disappear and trees are taking their place. Just downstream is another bridge, only this one is made of what look like match sticks but are in fact logs.

"...God what am I seeing here right now, is this real!?..."

"...yes my child it is all real, for you are seeing the shadows of what once was, cast your eyes around and tell me what you see..."

Okay this is now getting a little strange, as one would think this is a ghost story, but it is not, the bridge is there even now as it the thick jungle all around.

"...ah okay, as I look I see the workers and the tourists, however I see others as well, what has happened to them they are pitiful. Don't these people eat and this heat is now oppressive, what happened to that!"

"...keep looking and continue your dialogue, we'll talk about the rest later..."

"ah well I see a lot of men, no women, just men and they all barely dressed, some only wearing a loin-cloth and a hat for protection. As I turn towards the village I can now see a camp of some description, or what looks like a military camp and lots of crosses, oh my there are a lot of them aren't there."

"...that man over there in the long black boots he is directing those other men in uniforms and they have guns, well why don't the oth... Heavenly Father this is a camp for Prisoners' of War isn't it and they are Japanese soldiers?"

"...Yes James this is indeed a POW camp. You already knew the bridge was built by these young men but it did not really sink in what they endured. Hollywood has not done justice to what these young men suffered and endured against..."

"...It is time to walk across the bridge now, are you ready for what will come..."

"...yes..."

The previous evening I had been advised "James do not be afraid of what you will see in the physical world or in the spiritual world tomorrow"

As we venture across the bridge the sun is beginning to burn the back of my neck a little and the Thai workers are busy on fixing the sleepers. It is then that once again I have these images of the young men with their emaciated bodies also working on the same bridge, some stop and look as I walk by, here again as with Mary, can they actually see me!

The look on those faces say it all, strain, hopelessness and even death. The young Thai workers are completely oblivious to these souls that are still working around them, doing their bit to this day on that bridge.

I look downstream to the other bridge and there are men everywhere, toiling away in the oppressive heat which seems to come back every time I have this image. The flies and mosquitoes wow are they bad. Here again when I see just the modern day image again the bugs are gone!?

As I reach the other side of the bridge I see a party of soldiers beating a prisoner, he is already dead, has to be, no one in that physical condition could endure that type of beating

"...heavenly father end his suffering, please!..."

"...it was ended a long time ago James..."

As I now turn around to return back across the bridge I see the old steam engine and the prisoners on the flat-bed car climbing aboard for their journey up the track to who knows hell waits for them. The tourists have no clue as to any of this, believe me I am not sure I am believing in this but it is happening in real time.

Now I begin to become aware of the energy that is flowing from my body, I am having difficulty putting my hands together as the energy is forcing them apart. I feel the flow of energy start in my feet and move rapidly upwards and exit through my head and it is not just a little energy it is radiating and pulsing enormously.

"...where is the energy going?..."

"...to those whom are still here my Son, for they have been waiting for you to come along. Do not fight it, let the energy flow, feel the Holy Spirit move through you and into those young souls. Walk back to

The other side and send them home to me..."

"...what should I say to help them on their way?..."

"...In Dachau I guided you with your words, now use your heart to guide you and let the words flow..."

"...Okay I'll see what comes out...

"...My glorious brothers in God, you have been here for a long time, this place of your youth, this place of your sorrow and this place of your death. It is time for you to make your journey to the father, to a place where pain no longer exists, anguish is no more, love is ever present. Please follow me now my brothers, for I have walked your path before and have returned into a new light of day. The Heavenly Father is waiting for you, begin your journey home and leave this place of Death and misery behind..."

"...thank you my Son, remember those words as you will need to speak them several times today as you venture from here along the Death Railway..."

After visiting and walking through the cemetery and seeing how young all these men were, I could not help but to shed a tear or two for those who were sent there in cattle cars, were worked to death and never went home.

The journey for this day continued and throughout the journey along the railway line to Nam Tok, I could see those same emaciated men swinging their hand tools with whatever energy they had left, the guards beating a prisoner while the other watched and all along the way crosses by the side of the rail tracks.

I spoke those words 4 times that day, on the bridge, as I walked through the cemetery, while travelling along in the train and finally as I stood on the viaduct as the train passed by on its southeastern return journey.

At every stop along the way, young souls were waiting to begin their journey home. Many made that journey on this day. I am still emotionally, spiritually and physically drained from that experience.

"...Heavenly Father thank you for this journey today, a journey of re-discovery of who I really am, may the souls of those left behind so long ago finally find their way home to you..."

"...James this was a journey of preparation for you, a journey of enlightenment, a journey to peace. You have once again seen the worst that one man can do to another and you have come away with no anger or animosity to those whom perpetrated the physical crimes against there captives. Indeed in human terms you should hate the Japanese passionately for what you have seen portrayed at their hands, but instead you only feel love for your fellow man. My son the road to mastery is a long one, continue your journey you are almost there..."

I hope you have been able to feel and see a little of what I felt and saw that day, the rush of energy, the huge emotional swings. Place yourself on that 1:30 train ride to Nam Tok and see yourself looking out the window into the jungle that was there at the time, and see what you see for yourself.

This could have occurred at any number of places on earth, wherever man has committed atrocities against his fellow man, but it occurred along the aptly named "Death Railroad" and thank you for walking with me as we journeyed through our "Bridge in Time" along the Bridge that spans the River Kwai.

May the peace of the heavenly Father and his Son Jesus be with you always

My glasses are rose-tinted these days, or so I have been told!

I see the world in a different light than most, even from most I have read on this site. However you may not realize it but you ARE making small steps in your own mind, but huge leaps in the eyes those around you.

You say your son may be a non-believer, okay, is he a good person, have you instilled upon him a sense of your ethics and values and does he choose to follow them. If the answer is yes then you have done your best as a parent and he must find his own path.

There will be those who say he will be eternally damned, hmmm, ask God, I just have, you will be surprised what answer you receive.

You are not sure of how deep you wish to go and feel you can't get there, then don't. Remember your belief is you belief, to what depth of knowledge you wish to attain is up to you.

Natural Science and many others on this site have a huge depth of knowledge regarding faith, spirituality and religion, they are the ones I would confide in for answers of a theological nature. I don't and choose not to, I have my Faith (not blind faith) and love in God, Joshua and Mary that is what bouys me as I try to understand some of the postings about religion, souls and kundahlini, see I can't even spell it!

You say you have only touched a few, even Jesus made the statement to his Apostles:

"...if but one in a thousand finds the Father then there will be rejoicing in Heaven tonight, go about your work..."

I'm not suggesting you go stand on a street corner and tout the bible or faith, just be yourself and you will discover more will be touched than you realize. Believe me I am living proof of that.

As for leaving something tangible behind, just look in the mirror and say the following:

"...God, my love and Peace I send to your children on earth..."

That is the greatest gift any person can ever leave behind for their brethren here on Earth.

GysyBlue, relax, do not become down because you inwardly have doubts about yourself, God does not doubt you, never has and never will. For the Divine knows you better than you know yourself, knows "WHO YOU REALLY ARE," you can also find that person, it is not hard she is slready there, has been all along, you just need to remember...

"Heavenly Father may your love touch another soul whom is blossoming and yet is not seen by the body,
May your wisdom be remembered,
Your guidance be seen and understood,
May she find the courage to be whom she really is,
May you dwell forever more in the heart,
In the soul,
In the mind,
And in the love she has for all your children
May she and all who love her be bathed in your light
Bathed in your eternal love
And see the wonders that is God

Amen

James"

heehee. I love the rose-coloured glasses. Yes, I am so proud of my son. He has a scientific mind, and is always seeking answers. What I love about him, is whenever I am reading, or researching my interests in spirituality, he peeks over my shoulder and asks, "What are you reading mom?"
I began reading 'Edgar Cayce' when I was 12, and couldn't get my head out of the books. My mom used to worry that I spent too much time in these books. I always had a hunger though for more.
The sun is shining brightly through the window right now. I feel it shining on my back as I am typing. It is a good day!

James, I am unsure. I pass along what I have learned to my children. One of my sons thinks he is non-believing, but I feel I have done my job, and shared what I think is important. I haven't shared much else with too many, as there is so much I don't know. For me simplicity is what grasps my attention. I can't seem to follow things far too deeply; I get lost. I just want to leave behind something of substance, or fill my life up with it. I will keep trying to learn and understand and follow my heart. And I cherish my prayer given to me from a stranger whom shares of himself completely with someone trying to feel ahead with cloudy glasses. 😊

Hi James! I know for sure I neither want to be a walk-in soul nor become one's host. But I would be quite curious for such a phenomenon as a witness. For a witness and reporter role seems to be mine in this incarnation by God's will, as my posts show.
I read that walk-in must be agreed with by both souls involved. Thus it is improbable that I shall have a walk-in or become one.

I love your comment my Friend, this experience of seeing those who have passed in rela time is just something that is, well very strange feeling to me. On one hand I love the whole idea of sending them on their journey and on the other hand it is something I am really going to have to get my head around and truly understand.

Funny in light of everything that has happened in the past year I shouldn't have any odd feeling about this, but this is one issue my human ego is having a hard time with, even though my soul has taken over completly a long time ago.

It is indeed a wonderful feeling and I hope it happens more frequently!

"...My peace I leave you..."

thus you perhaps mean that I will WITNESS a walk-in but not be its SUBJECT? This could be well possible, and if this is meant it would reveal the meaning of something in my private life that I never understood. I feel very surely who could be subject to the walk-in and for which reason. I'll take the consequence.

James,

Yes, I am there, and I can feel the energy going out of me too. Thanks for posting and sharing.

It was only a few months ago that I found I could do what you did in your posting, ie, to go back in time to help out people suffering at the end of their journeys, and to lift their spirits - literally. Also to help people out during their illnesses. Time doesn't seem to be a factor. And I also got the understanding that the past was waiting for me to act - now.

But it has been hard for me because I can feel these people's pain and suffering... So much... I don't know how people could endure... God bless them and free their spirits from all the suffering. And so I admit I have been a little lazy recently (more like reluctance) in doing more, although increasing so somehow I have gravitated toward reading history books and placing myself in historical moments (I never liked history before), not to mention watching various disasters unfold on TV news channels and tried to help the victims.

And so reading your posting has strike a resonance in me and strengthened my resolve to do more, which is what's meant to be.

The walk-in I witnessed occurred to a good friend from the UK and we watched her eye colour change from blue to green overnight.

This occurred at a time when I thought all this spirituality stuff was just plain and utter nonsense, hence a real test of my beliefs at the time.

She was indeed trapped in a way within her body as Simon Peter took over and eventually left, leaving her feeling empty and alone. She is not long for this world now and death would be a true release for her.

Sorry I can't pass along any happier thoughts on the subject, but I am just the messenger, if I understand any mor eof this I will pass it along as I am in the dark as much as you as to why you

I looked up what a walk-in is. It is the take-over of one's body, and of his/her mortal personality, i.e. Memories and habits of the respective human life, by another soul.

In one of Lobsang Rampa's spiri-fiction books (or are at least some of his stories real after all?) a walk-in is described. Rampa saw himself as a walk-in, as an old Tibetan monk's soul having taken over the body of some young English man. For this idea that English writer who called himself Lobsang Rampa (the former Tibetan's name) was deemed to be a fraud...

Well, perhaps such a thing as walk-in really does exist, though the things I read about it in WWW sound like badly written Sci-fi or like Lobsang Rampa imitation to me.

And well, some praise this phenomenon as a tool for Ascension of this Planet...

But to me it sounds more like a hardship to endure, and a danger to face, for many walk-in people have two personalities within them at least for a while and then they of course are at risk of being psychiatrically robbed off their freedom and vigilance (by drugging, "stationery therapy", electroshock etc)! What should a walked-in soul be useful for, if its body is tied to some bed in some asylum and its brain numb from neuroleptics?

If my body should become subject of walk-in it would be no advantage to me except if the other soul brings to me easy success in things I toiled to achieve in vain - mainly the ability to REALLY meditate (not just to sit and struggle painfully for switching off thought...) and the power to convince and lead people, to make them listen to me.

But if I had the chance to "die" meself i.e. Leave this present body of mine behind to have a walk-in into another that fits better to my true task in this world, also by a higher social position and a different kind of education that fills the gaps of my abilities (the walk-in soul as you know will take over the body's memories too), it could be a good chance.

If you are allowed to tell me more, please do.

As for a "walk-in," well those words came to me while I was typing my last response to your comment, and that you will experience this at a point in the distant future (I intially thought within a year or two but have been advised otherwise).

As for what it is, I am not allowed to say, but was only allowd to say it will happen to you, you see that was the point when I stopped typing and started asking questions, perhaps too many questions!

Besides it will give you a chance to research a new concept. A recent walk-in I winessed was that of Simon Peter, yes that Simon Peter and I would love to have had a chat about the founding Pillars of Christianity. However a rather large barrier to this was placed in front of me due to it becoming an emotional issue with me.

He has gone again, but whew you talk about testing ones beliefs, faith, or whether it is all just hogwash!

You still wonder why I call you "Glorious" hmm, makes one think doesn't it... Yes I am just as curious.

My Precious Friend In God, it is indeed an honour for me to be a part of your awakening, for I am just the observer, God is your Guiding Light and you are the Composer of your Masterpiece you call your existance.

You are making your journey to the Father in your own way and I see it in your writing with every post you make.

I see you and others like IwanttoHelp and baileybailey for examples moving beyond whom they were, to discovering in your own individual ways "WHO YOU ARE"

It is indeed my honour and privilege to be witness to all of you beginning your ascension to the Father and His Son.

You are all much more than I will ever be, though you do not realize it yet. There are a few questions I ask of the Divine whenever I come across a new name on this site, so believe me when I say;

"...I walk among thee who art giants..."

For as Jesus once said

"...the Shepherd knows his flock..."

So thank you for reading this experience and sharing with me THE experience. Judging by your comment I believe it is you who will be the teacher to those eager to listen, re-read your comment again and you will see why, it is very clear to me...

May HE who is the ALL fill your heart and Soul with his love for you and may the love for your fellow man fill the hearts of others

James, I am so happy for selfish reasons that you didn't take a breather. I understand that you are so drained, and just am so incredibly thankful that I have found my way to your posts. You fill up an emptiness with your teachings, and sharing of the God inside of you. I can feel it, and I am like a little hopeful girl finding new unopened answers; learning, learning, learning along the way. I feel bits and pieces of people I love, and my mind travels so many different directions. You have seen the worst of human-kind but you are bettering all of us here, alive today. I would sit and listen to you every day. I feel proud to be welcomed to walk with you through your journey's. Thank-you.

I ask the questions and have no reason to doubt where the answers are coming from, did I actually see any "going home" no, not one, but when I ask the Divine I have never been given a wrong answer yet... And never excpect to either (I have my own verification process to determine if it is my imagination or a Divine source).

NaturalScience, I do not need to search for factual data to back-up my faith, I cannot even use science to prove many of the things that have happened to me in the last 14 months, believe me many a time I wish I could satisfy my own doubting mind with a definitive scientific answer. My belief and faith in God and Jesus transcends all that science can validate.

Remember the line from one of the Christmas movies:

"...seeing isn't believing, believing is seeing..."

I am not a clairvoyant, wouldn't have a clue how to do that, however this experience was the first one where-by things were happening as I walked, while being wide awake and not in a meditative state.

Would I have even recognized any of them "going home." I highly doubt it as I wouldn't know what to look for, perhaps some did as I walked back across the bridge, to me many just vanished in front of my eyes like they had been doing the previous 20 minutes before that.

I would certainly like to know what to look for in the future...

I am comforted by the words from a previous experience where-by I was told to not worry about what others think and say, but to keep writing, for many will not believe a word I type anyway.

May the light of the Heavenly Father continue to shine upon you and through you my Glorious Friend...

By the way you may wish to familiarize yourself with the symptoms of a walk-in, it will come in handy in a few years.

Hello my Friend in God

The important point is you tried, that is all that matters at this point in time.

Keep trying, this is not something that comes easily to most, myself included. Our human mind or ego keeps telling us this is not possible and then one day the soul takes command and nothing is impossible from that moment on.

The purpose of that post is for poeple like yourself, an experience to begin to look inside yourself and open your mind to greater possibilities.

Do not despair you made the attempt and that is truly wonderful.

May the light of the Father continue to bless you...
