In the March 27, 2013 post on Ancient Origins website, William
Bramley author of 'Gods of Eden' has said:
"Based upon some of the Ancient
Astronaut evidence, the Great Flood legend, and the UFO evidence
connected to the Black Death, my guess was that the ETs'
solution would be another annihilation of humans...
Such annihilation might be in
connection with their creation of a new version of Homo sapiens
that is more compatible with the ETs to replace us, just as
custodial ETs had reportedly done in pre-history to create the
current version of homo sapiens..."
This intriguing conjecture portends the
end of a
Cycle of Time, which leads to the fear-loaded
question of the
Harvesting of Souls. The archaic phrase 'harvesting
of souls' is in fact specious, wrong and misleading. There is only
There is only one Soul.
We all share the
same Soul, the Oneness.
“I am the same in all beings.”
[Bhagavad Gita IX.29]
We exist individually as spirit or
astral bodies that transmigrate, moving from one material body to
another by the law of magnetism.
Like attracts like. Our actions,
thoughts and consciousness create the subtle or spirit body over
hundreds of life times. In Sanskrit the subtle body is called the
SHARIRA. Seers and psychics can easily see this body and read its
The word harvesting is also misleading. No one can 'take' you or
make you do anything unless you yourself have generated a
consciousness that resonates with a particular force, a waveform
that would then magnetize you into its similar frequency.
Therefore a deeper understanding of the
mechanics of this process will relieve you of fear and help you to
realize why it is imperative to generate a high consciousness at
The Subtle Body
As you incarnate in Time and Space, you
build a subtle body - also termed as the spirit or astral body.
In Kashmir Shaivism is it called the
puryashtaka rupa [Sanskrit]. Like the physical body, the subtle body
contains a complex nervous system.
"nerve currents are called Hita
Nadis [Sanskrit] and they are very fine in structure, finer than
even the thousandth part of a hair. Through these very fine,
subtle nerve currents pass the serum of the essence of the human
translated with commentaries by Swami Krishnananda and available
These subtle nerves store the
impressions of our lives and our thoughts.
Every thought, every experience is
stored in this the subtle body that carries our individual
consciousness from one life to another. This individuality is only a
temporal 'appearance' for beneath all forms of multiplicity is the
One, the eternal Real.
It is this aggregate, this cumulative consciousness that determines
our next incarnation. Inevitably, inexorably we become that which
our actions and thoughts, our own individual consciousness has
self-created, self-generated. We alone are responsible.
We are drawn to the external holographic
manifestations of our own thoughts. There is no one to blame. It is
all our doing. We are each a portion of the Oneness playing in Time
and Space - like everyone else.
The eternal, imperishable, immutable Oneness assumes a temporal
'appearance' in a fragment of Its Self as the individual. When we
are born we move into a new physical body and when we leave, meaning
die, we do so in this subtle body.
The subtle body is our
It carries the five senses and the mind,
the impressions (samskaras) of our experiences as,
“the wind carries scents.”
[Bhagavad Gita XV.7 & 8]
Like attracts like!
From an understanding of the subtle body, we realize that no one can
ever actually 'take' or harvest our soul. Our own consciousness has
built the subtle spirit body. We will be magnetized to
the-where-and-what it resonates with.
Like attracts like - that simple!

The Invisible Realms
In previous Cycles of Time, we were not limited to the five senses

have bonds with them. If we humans were created by off-world beings,

rightfully theirs - family DNA.

what you want and where you want to arrive.
