False Memory and the Akashic Record

False Memory and the Akashic Record


Throughout my personal voyage riding the rollercoaster of life, contemplating many a mystery and encountering many an incident of  the ‘impossible’, I have been fortunate always to have a learned Tibetan lama nearby and when all has been said and done they have always gently reminded me that ‘There is only Mind’. This is a wonderfully sagacious and yet simple sweeping statement that takes the edge off many a paranormal distraction amidst the ‘special effects’ of psychic phenomena and the paranormal, but not so the current tag ‘quantum entanglement’, as it is that ancient Buddhist wisdom that now meets comfortably with this contemporary quantum physics discovery. One could forgive the humble saffron robed lama of thousands of years ago if they were to hop aboard a time machine and visit today to mutter,‘Told you so’. (Although I doubt their muted ego would allow them to take a bow, and there would be no need to time travel as  I’m sure they would also remind me,‘There is only the Now’!)


Where is Mind?

To talk about this ‘Mind’ is not so simple. Where exactly is it? Here? There? Everywhere? Is this why the bible said God both saw and heard everything? Is it the Akashic record of the mystics, the memory bank of planet earth that is somewhere, as the Sanskrit word ‘akasha’ implies in the sky, space or Aether?


Most of us have heard of the argument of how we dream at night and return to reality during the day, but what if it is the other way around – our dream world is the true reality and our waking consciousness the dream? My lama friends have a habit of impressing on me, lest I forget, that this life is a dream. Is it also a dream within a dream, the waking consciousness a dream and the time we spend sleeping yet another level? All this has to do with the omnipresence of Mind.


Where is the Akashic Record?

Anyone who has decided to set about trying to meditate will invariably have experienced the initial interference Tibetans call the ‘monkey mind’…trivial, irritating, challenging, incessant…all types of thoughts invade our search for a blank sheet piece of mind and calm, often putting newcomers off in the first instance. If we listen to these gatecrashers we reinforce their presence and will never empty our head! Instead, we are trained to ignore them and let them go. Pay them attention and we assert their unwelcome stay. So where do thoughts come from? Does the Universal One mind have its own ‘chattering monkeys’ too? Now there’s a thought. Here’s some others. During the sixties and seventies it was easy to spook yourself big time by digesting the content of three excellent books, ‘Passport to Magonia’, ‘Operation Trojan Horse’ and ‘The invisible College’ all very persuasive, innovative, informative and spooky. In short the mystery of the Ufo and all related paranormal occurrences were explained in a simple fashion. ‘Passport to Magonia’ – now billed as an underground classic – came from the mind of French physicist Jacques Valle in 1969, his argument being that all manner of entities seen and experienced by humans  had been seen throughout history and were nothing new, furthermore did they have a separate existence or where we, the human race, being subject to some type of control mechanism, these otherworldly folk always making sure we experienced how they always possess a technology just beyond the society currently witnessing their presence.


Passport to Magonia

American journalist and author John Keel’s ‘Operation Trojan Horse’, published the following year and now subtitled ‘The classic breakthrough in Ufo’s,’ told the story of an invisible world that both surrounds, merges with and engulf us, ‘reality itself is distorted by strange forces which can seemingly manipulate space-time’.  Ufo’s, we learn, do not emanate from elsewhere in the Universe, they are right here as  is all High Strangeness emanating from this not-so hidden landscape or realm. Vallee popped back in 1977 with his ‘Invisible College’ to tell us Ufo’s may not be physical aliens but defy classification as pure psychological anomalies, as a phenomena with  some kind of control system on human consciousness. At this point, I would personally ask, if so, then for what purpose? We are left to await and see.


Operation Trojan Horse

Certainly both Vallee and Keel have suggested that the answer to the tantalising mysteries pertaining to otherworldly encounters is far closer to home as once thought, and it is – look no further away than our own brain whereupon our thoughts filter through either right or left hemispheres to create our own individual reality.  I explained my own take on all this in my 2012 World Mysteries Blog ‘Do we own our own brains?’ (Answer – No). Buddhism teaches us that ‘We are not our own thoughts ’-  reinforced by our own ego, they are merely distraction from ultimate Reality. The reason why I decided to submit this blog was not to remind us of the work of the above authors or even to brush up on Buddhism, but to suggest a possible solution to a specific question. Why have psychic accounts submitted to us of the earth’s remote history, for example concerning Atlantis and or Lemuria, all disagree on key events and dates?  Why is it we have been told so many numerous origins of the human race from alien visitations only to hear that they differ in account and purpose?

As a researcher whose case history took me from the mystery of Rennes-le-Chateau in 1985 to intense scrutiny of sacred geometry, Freemasonry, alleged secret societies, Knights Templars, Jungian psychology, the Holy Grail, and the mysterious biblical figure handed down to us as Mary Magdalene, I have had to ponder over exactly why so many researchers, many very good ones too, who have finalised their own deductions arrive at a different conclusion, especially those who claim to have been assisted along the way by, and dependant on, their own spirit guides or angelic sources. Surely, and logically, if we are all pursuing the same mystery to solve, and assisting by the same one Source, we should all arrive at the same conclusion? But not so. I call this episode in my own work, ‘The Many Mary Magdalene’s’. With so many versions of her about she could be called Myriad Magdalene!


Spirit Guides – always accurate?

When misinformation and misattribution of original sourced information interfere with formulation of a new memory, the consequence is to make the recalling of an event mistaken or false in entirety. Some years ago the favoured theory concerning MM was her continuing holy bloodline. I have dismissed this with my own conclusion finding that she was murdered before giving childbirth. I also have had contact with three different individuals who all claim contact with MM herself and yet the information disseminated from what should be the one Mary all appears to be at odds with each recipient. Dr Manjir Samantha-Laughton, one of three female authors friends claiming contact with MM and with whom I share a difference of opinion with them all, says she has been experiencing visions of her over the last ten years. And then there are the physical reincarnations of Mary. Some of the many are 35 year old Mary Suzanne Luck who, with a stroke of luck found her ‘Jesus’ (51 year old John Miller) to have followers at their church in a rural area of Queensland, Australia. There is ‘Maitreya’ Miranda, more correctly 49 year old Linda Weisz, from Leeds and living in Glastonbury who, perhaps not so wisely, goes to great lengths to tell us how all other claimants are wrong as she alone is Magdalene, and I have even been contacted by a young female yet again in Australia who believes herself to be the Magdalene and is currently on the run – and expecting me to do something about it!

My friend Margaret Starbird, author of many books on Mary Magdalene, has been contacted frequently by different females who insist they are the figure. When I visited Rennes-le-Chateau in 1985, authoress Elizabeth Van Buren told me, ‘There are 13 Mary Magdalene’s up there in the village.’ What can we say is an explanation for all these claims? Psychics say that some channelers are influenced by ‘malevolent forces’. From Magonia? From the Invisible College? Dream and mythology expert Ariadne Green says “individuals may succumb to hypnogocic images of pure fantasy born out of their own mythic creation and imagination. Another possibility is that the psyche becomes flooded with images and synchronicities on a personal archetypical journey with the personality identifying too strongly with the archetypes.” Now we must return to Mind. I think it is safe to say that all of us reading this blog knows what it is like to have changed our mind about something. What is a great idea in the morning, upon reflection is not so great at all by the afternoon. How many times in a day do we change our mind? Is it really ‘us’ who thinks we have made the decision or it our Unconscious Mind? Dream analysts interpret symbology in our dreams, and a flip through a selection of a few dictionaries will show that not every analyst agrees with one another on the exactitude of some symbolism. If our waking consciousness is also a dream then perhaps all events in it are equally open to a variant in interpretation from person to person, quantifying what physics tells us, that we indeed do make our own individual reality.


Symbology in Dreams – Open to interpretation

If we can interpret the paranormal landscape of Keel and Vallee to be viewed as the Mind of this planet, as in the Gaia Hypothesis, that seeps its ever changing thoughts down to, and through us, then I would like you to consider one overlooked and truly fascinating facet of Mind.  It is that of ‘False Memory Syndrome’, quite a recent discovery in our own understanding of psychology and psychiatry, which highlights exactly how memory is prone to fallacy. The term describes the condition how both a person’s identity and relationships are affected by factually incorrect memories which they believe to be true. Christopher French, at the Goldsmith University in London, said in 2013 that there is still a lack of awareness of how unreliable memory is, and pointed out how this has impacted on cases within the legal system. He added; ‘Although this is common knowledge within psychology and widely accepted by anyone who has studied the literature, it is not widely known about in society more generally.’ That same year, by conditioning a network of neurons to respond to light enforcing recall of an unpleasant environment, scientists succeeded in planting false memories into mice, making them wrongly associate a benign environment with a previous unpleasant experience from different surroundings, claiming that one day it would help us understand why false memories occur in humans.


The Neuronal Network

Similar as with mice, human memory is stored within collections of cells and when events are recalled we reconstruct parts of these cells in the same way that we reassemble small pieces of a jigsaw. Tellingly, how often have we heard researchers into the paranormal say that every breakthrough is like another piece of the jigsaw to add, helping along the effort to make up the full picture? Dr Xu Liu at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology quotes; ‘Our memory changes every single time it is being recorded. That is why we can incorporate new information into old memories and this is how a false memory can form.’ As we have the introduction of FMS into our psychology, on the basis of the hermetic maxim ‘As above so below’, then this facet of Mind must also exist in the bigger picture, as a function and component part of Mind itself.

As-above-so-belowAs Above, so Below – Planetary Mind, Human Mind

Perhaps now we have an explanation for how we have inherited so many recounts of our history that have discrepancies with each other, instead of one solid basis. Akin  the same mechanism that in our own brain allows us to change our mind, the planet too is at an even greater liberty to change hers, and , of course, is not bound by a time-space that we are, as she is timeless – that eternal ‘Now’, as expounded in Buddhism. The famous 1616 quote, concept and proverb, that it is a woman’s prerogative to change her mind, certainly takes on a new perspective when we learn that the origin of the word ‘mind’ comes from Old English ‘Gemynd’ meaning memory, thought. May I suggest we read that as Ge-Mynd, to become ‘Ge-Mind’, with ‘Ge’ being  the Greek mythological goddess interchangeable with Gaia as the personification of the earth Herself. Indeed, this appears confirmation that the mystery of Mind belongs to our female Mother Earth. We can even say that the Akashic record, that   compendium of all mystical knowledge encoded in a non-physical plane of existence and responsible for recording all events in history, must allow for containing some faults and inaccurate occult history and recollection brought about by a fleeting and occasional planetary false memory, being a natural part of its Whole. As we saw earlier, with the propensity of numerous Mary Magdalene’s about all at once, both in the physical and allegedly channelled from her in the spirit realm, amidst all else a false memory of accounts exists in the mix, the original source misinforming and misattributing, and we can understand why so many seekers are arriving with their differing outcome. This recently discovered phenomena within psychology now being considered, it would be foolish not for it to be integrated and accepted into Vallee and Keel’s description of a ‘manipulative and controlling otherworldy mechanism’, as part of planetary Mind.

    After running into road blocks in the organized religions that I have worshiped in during my life time I discovered an ancient source for getting answers to ALL of the questions that the religious elders of these organized religions had avoided. Lee Fisher’s new book “My Search For God Through The Akashic Records” answers over 300 questions formed over more than sixty years across three different religious experiences. These are questions that religious leaders were either afraid or unable to answer. I Joined Lee in the exaltation which comes from the answers that only the Akashic Records would supply. To my gratification there was more information on Lee’s web site at: http://www.akashicrecordsleefisher.com/

    If you dig into scholarship you may find that the bible’s Magdalene, as well as other…motifs, were based on prior myth and tweaked.

    Something to consider… We’ve minds that broadcast thought forms. They get dumped into the so called astral plane (user friendly term). What may be happening in most cases – As Per the observation of differing scenarios on the same topic – is that we are simply tapping into that same, garbage. We may be simply tapping into our own beliefs… as to truths but that may be relative. And these thought forms apparently take on a different nature after so much feeding or attention.

    I think there is something to this and the possibility that we’re not alone and we all exist within a food chain.

    One major issue is becoming ungrounded. I’ve learned the hard way this is what any kind of intrusive, exploiting entity wants.

    Hi Dan
    Yes – spot on once again, just briefly for the moment:
    1) Eloise ”meditated” and brought Chingiz Ghan along, noting a detail regarding his eyelashes which we later confirmed was something the ”Ghans” did! She has never ”meditated” again, saying that it was all about blood.
    2) The Doc states clearly not to listen to ”channellers” and I at the time thought Barbara what’s her name the Plejaren ”channeller” might be for real. Turns out I caught her ”channell” out in a lie relating to information documented from the Doctor (1 42 ”searching for the gold of the ornament (Nostradamus) and Psellus) Psellus Michael the Younger published ”Cronographia” in 1055AD and chapter 39 speaks of ”quantum physics” and another speaks of Ormus and its properties. Whereas the ”channel” stated ”your scientists only found quantum mechanics in the last hundred years”.
    If she really WAS a plejaren – THAT would be one detail she would know

    It seems maybe I had best get all the Magdalene information collected.
    You are already aware that Nostradamus speaks of the Magdalene doing the left handed caesarian –
    There is an obscure manuscript by Nostradamus titled THE MONSTRE D’ABUS which I found in someone’s private collection. In it were a few lines regarding Magdalene – and I have only really worked with three pages of the forty pages!
    Here is an excerpt relating to Magdalene:

    Very illuminating and profound, Dan. I enjoyed the article. I generally agree with Gloria Amendola’s comment above. Of course, self-deception remains an issue as well – for instance, in the sixties and seventies of last century it was all the rage to be the reincarnation of Cleopatra – a fashion which arose after the famous film starring Elizabeth Taylor had become widely known. Since the rise to fame of Baigent, Lea and Lincoln’s ‘Holy Blood, Holy Grail’ in the eighties, reincarnated Cleopatras have gradually been replaced with equally numerous Mary Magdalenes. And some people claimed to be an incarnational aspect of Princess Diana whilst she was still alive! So, as well as often being a sincere but confused over-identification with an archetype, the phenomenon can sometimes be reduced to the trite level of identification with whoever is the dead (or not!) female who’s currently getting the most attention! I also think it’s important, as science progresses, to be careful that it doesn’t become a detracter and invalidater of human perception and experience. Mary Magdalene’s own gospel shows us seven spheres of delusion, manipulation and control before the human soul rises, liberated from all fetters, into clear perception free from distortions. The highest sphere of delusion is Mind itself, and even in a gospel written in Coptic nearly 2,000 years ago, Mary quotes the Mind as saying to the soul who is attempting to emanicipate itself from its control (to paraphrase): ‘How can you want to leave ME behind – you must surely be mad!’ I think the Buddhist idea of Mind is the pure, exalted Mind that others call Spirit,not the earthly mind, with all its limitations, confusions and conceits.

    Dan has literally blown our minds with this blog and his propensity for detailed word analysis is quite simply astonishing.We all know of man’s desire to explore huge underground caverns,scour vast deserts and dive the deepest oceans under the premise of discovering new worlds and lifeforms. Pursuing a dream to rule over everything in the universe including time and space and yet despite all these aspirations he is still unable to claim, by any stretch of anyone’s imagination , mastery over the furthest recesses of the human mind.As for all of us journeying along the same enlightened pathway , in order to synchronise our neurons , reminds us like chinese whispers , how easily the truth can end up in a state of distortion.Nevertheless Dan has made a thorough examination of all things entangled, quantum or otherwise.

    My favourite article so far. Fascinating as ever.

    Pardon me for thinking out loud…
    If there is one mind that unites us all, could this be why so many people want to believe (or simply convince themselves) that they are the reincarnation of such-and-such? Be it MM or somebody else – Because we are all one in the same (mind)?

    If we’re all connected to the same force of Mother Earth then we all can tap into these “memories” in some way. But memory, as you’ve explored, is not always reliable, hence the 13 alleged Marys and counting. Maybe there’s a bit of MM in each of us. Or maybe we’ll simply never know. Not yet, at least.

    Very interesting blog Dan.

    I would like to address the issue of people who believe they are Mary Magdalene. Speaking as an author of two channeled books on Mary Magdalene, I obviously connect deeply with her spirit.

    It has been my experience too, that many people believe they are her. And many people through the years have told me that I am her. But I’m not, even though I must admit there are some uncanny connections that have followed me through the years. Still, I am not her.

    I believe that Magdalene is what is termed an Ascended Master and, in that energetic configuration in the Akashic Record, we draw that frequency to us, much like tuning into a radio station that we want to listen to at any given time. As we integrate that experience, we filter it through the lens of our own beliefs and emotions. That could account for all the different versions of her.

    Gloria Amendola
