FAQs About the Books from Jesus
How are the books from Jesus written?
I receive the books from Jesus in the same way that Helen Schucman received A Course in Miracles, which is also said to be dictated by Jesus. Many others have also received their writings this way, including St. Teresa of Avila, St. Hildegard of Bingen, Richard Bach, and Neale Donald Walsch. This method of receiving information is called conscious channeling. It is a process of hearing words mentally and writing them down as they are heard, without any thought. I can receive this communication anywhere. I don’t need to be in a meditative or trance state. All that is necessary is that I don’t think! When I’m receiving this dictation, it is as if Jesus is sitting in a chair next to me speaking the words, except that those words are heard mentally. I can ask questions during this dictation and receive answers, but the process works best when my own mind is completely set aside. Then the flow happens smoothly and rapidly and without interruption until a particular stopping place is reached.
When I’m writing a book, I usually write 700-1500 words each morning and then edit those words later that same day, which is largely an intuitive process. The words don’t require much editing, nor do I generally change anything in the organization of those words. The books are given to me without me knowing what the book will include, although I’m given a rough table of contents. Writing this way is a little like driving blind, in that I don’t know what’s coming next, although I might have an intuitive sense of it. Writing this way takes continual trust that the book will come together, which it always does. I couldn’t have written these books myself. My books are my teachers, and I am privileged to share them.
How did you come to be a scribe for Jesus?
n 2012, I began to have numerous inner experiences of Mother Mary, Jesus, and a circle of other Ascended Masters appearing to me, in my mind’s eye, and speaking to me in words that I could clearly hear in my mind. The reason they gave me for appearing at that time is that I had reached a point in my growth and in my life when I would be working more closely with them. Specifically, they wanted to dictate books to me and give other teachings orally that would be helpful to those I currently touch through my work. Here are a few of the inner experiences I had in 2013 with Mother Mary and Jesus, which I recorded in my spiritual log:
Jesus’s face materialized, just for a few seconds, and he began to talk with me. I saw this in my mind’s eye and I heard his words inside my head. He said that he and the others (various Ascended Masters) have always been behind my work and to know and trust that it was such a transmission and that I was meant to be a channel of their words in the world and that I’d prepared for this role for eons. He said they are healing the world through the words I write and the words of others and that words are especially powerful today because they can reach so many people. He said to trust that what I had written and would write would be very helpful to people. When he spoke, I could feel how huge Jesus is as a spiritual being. He is one of the main guardians of this planet. He has explained to me that he is available to all who are devoted to him and to anyone who calls upon him.
On another occasion, I felt and saw in my mind’s eye a circle of beings around me who were Ascended Masters. They looked like a circle of light-beings. Although they were indistinct figures, a sense of sacredness and holiness permeated the gathering. They were conveying intuitively to me a sense of celebration, like a birthday. There was a flame above each of their heads and above mine, as I stood in the center of the circle. The scene looked a little like a birthday cake, and I wondered if the candles on birthday cakes symbolized a new birth or new phase, as this seemed to. Then they conveyed: “You are one of us now.” After a few moments, they began to leave, one by one, and only one remained. It was Jesus. He said, “Welcome, my beloved child,” and held out his arms. “You are part of this circle now. You have arrived at your destination. We will always be with you. You will receive training soon.” It was explained to me that the training that Jesus was speaking about was in being an instrument and transmitter of his teachings and of his energy and that this training would happen while I was asleep and at other times.
One day in my meditation, I felt moved to call on Mother Mary. She appeared to me and said: “Blessed One, I have a blessing for you and a rose.” I then saw, in my mind’s eye, her hand me a red rose. “The rose is a symbol of love and connection with all and with me. When you see a rose, think of me,” she said. The blessing she gave me felt like molasses moving slowly down my body from head to toe.
Later I learned from a religious scholar that the rose in Christianity is like the lotus in Hinduism and that Mary is often seen with roses. Roses were part of the miracle performed by the Virgin of Guadalupe, and Mother Mary is often depicted with roses at her feet. Furthermore, a rose is often depicted at the center of the cross. On another occasion, Mary placed a wreath of roses on my head and called me her child and said she would be there to greet and embrace me at the end of my life. It felt very heavenly. I felt like I have always known her.
How do you know it’s Jesus?
didn't ask for or necessarily want to be a scribe for Jesus, and I had no idea my work would take this turn. However, a deepening happened in 2012, and I became aware of a profound connection to the Christian lineage that went back many lifetimes. That year, in the fall, Mother Mary appeared to me. I saw her and spoke with her. She said she would like me to write a small book for her and that Jesus would also be in contact soon. Subsequently, I had many inner experiences with Mary and then Jesus and an initiation on inner planes and began working with a circle of twenty-eight Ascended Masters, as I explained above.
There is a purity in the experience of these beings and in their communication. They are loving, accepting, and very respectful of our free will. I see them inwardly, feel them, and hear them with distinct voices and energies. I've been channeling since 1986, so I have experience with the various beings in other dimensions, including the false ones, which I talked about in my batgap.com interview
, which you can listen to on this website.
I think I finally reached a place in my own growth of enough surrender to be able to say yes to doing these books with Jesus, and let the chips fall where they may professionally and socially. Writing these books feels to me like a choiceless choice. How can I say no when it feels so right? If the books were not of the quality they are, then I probably would doubt my experience. "By their fruits you will know them," and the “fruits” have been good.
In the beginning, I asked Jesus if I had to claim him as the author. He said that I was free to choose not to do these books, but if I said yes, I would have to say they were from him. I see now that these books would not have the same power or impact had they been given to me in my voice. So I’m now happy to share this voice that I’ve been privileged to have access to.
I realized that when I agreed to doing these books that this might not be a good career move :-) but, as I said, it was a choiceless choice. It feels like what I'm meant to do for now. I have often said, "If you had the experiences I've had, you probably wouldn't walk away from this work either." These books have been my teachers, and I am humbled and blessed to be the servant of these words. That is how I feel anyway.
One more thing, it might seem grandiose to claim that I channel Jesus, because he is such a prominent figure for this world, but Jesus is in touch with many, many people, although not as many can actually speak with him. He has told me that he is available to everyone who is devoted to him and his message. He is very involved with people and with the transformation of consciousness on this planet, along with many other Ascended Masters.
Here's another point, which you might find interesting. Lower astral entities who toy with channels do so to get power by telling them what to do, ultimately with the design to humiliate them or get them to commit suicide. They may pretend to be higher beings (they know how to imitate them) and they may tell you they are Jesus or Buddha or someone special, but interacting with them won't result in anything of value.
Lower astral beings are like con men and will do whatever it takes to fool you. Like con men, they have an end in mind, which is always harmful. They have access to a tremendous amount of information that humans don't, including everything on the internet and everything in everyone’s mind, so they can sound very impressive and be very convincing. They use such information to draw people in, and then once they have your trust, the games begin, telling you what to do and what's going to happen, pumping up your ego, and so forth.
On the other hand, higher entities, such as Jesus and the being I channeled for so many years before Jesus, operate according to higher laws and rules. They cannot misrepresent themselves and they never harm, control, or tell people what to do, and they rarely provide personal information about the future. They teach and heal and work through channels to teach and heal. They are supportive and loving, but they never flatter, manipulate you, or pump up your ego.
Lower entities simply could not nor would they write a book like the ones I'm bringing through, although they could regurgitate a few phrases of perennial wisdom they gathered along the way if that would facilitate their con. Writing a book wouldn't be fun for them, and it is too lengthy a project. But more importantly, they aren't wise enough to do this. So when an entire book comes through that is consistently wise and it is said to be from Jesus, then it is Jesus, because those capable of such wisdom would not misrepresent themselves. As an aside, any differences in the quality of the many books written that are said to be from Jesus are likely due to differences in the channels’ capabilities. Not all channels are equally skilled.
What's more important to me than who this information comes from is that the information be helpful to others. My only measure of this is if it has been of benefit to me. I naturally want to share what has been beneficial to me. If only a relatively few people accept what I write and benefit from it, then I guess that was the intended result, since I’m not in control of the results and have to be okay with whatever those results are. Any argument that I might be doing this for self-aggrandizement is ridiculous, since that is not the experience I'm having, nor is it at all what I'm looking for in this stage of my spiritual growth. So there you have it!
The books dictated by Jesus are The Jesus Trilogy, A Heroic Life, All Grace, and In the World but Not of It. They are also available as audiobooks. There is also a series of audiobooks by Jesus called Jesus Speaking, which is also available in ebook and paperback on Amazon only.
