Re: Visionaries,visions, hallucinations and imagination

I'm not one to claim that I speak with ascended masters, but I have
encountered a myriad of ghost entities (many hundreds at least)
during my travels upon the astral planes. Suffice it to say that
most supernatural experiences (99%) that people have are distorted by
dream material which is projected onto them. When the physical brain
is not acclimated to the supernatural realm, it remains
materialistically focused, and therefore dreams. However, when the
brain's materialistic dependencies cease for a time, then the dream
imageries also cease, and a person is capable of percieving directly
into the supernatural realm without skew.
Hallucinations and dreams are triggered by the brain's failure to
reconcile higher supernatural experience with the lesser material
reality. In other words, if the brain cannot accept a supernatural
experience, it will most definitely project hallucinogenic/dream
images onto it. For example, an unknown ghost entity may literally
appear to a person from the supernatural realm, but if the brain
cannot accept the supernatural experience, the brain will invariably
colorize the event with imageries of Michael the Archangel or Jesus
Christ. Whatever is familiar to the individual.
