The Fifth Soul Realm
Edgar Cayce wrote extensively on the Soul Realms, Harvey Green has written on, and researched Cayce’s writing on the subject, which has also been explored by Helen Greaves, Ruth Montgomery, E Rudolf Steiner, Emanuel Swedenborg, and Ruth Matteson Taylor. The following borrows from the work of all of the above.
When I am conducting my Past Life Regressions I am frequently asked to explore the Soul Realms, and am asked about them. This is a guide to the fifth soul realm. I have previously written on the First, Second, Third and Fourth Soul Realms, after this, there are a further three realms to explore.
In the Fifth Realm we find that our sympathy with our community and all of those who inhabit it reaches its highest point. We grow from attachment to earthly things for their sensory values to attachment to them because they are representative of God and life in higher realms. We work largely on our sympathy and empathy here and becoming holy.
From the Fifth Region we begin to observe life being held together by the harmonies which the Pythagoreans called the Music of the Spheres. This becomes the first region since leaving the material Earth where we begin to appreciate the creative force of harmonies.
At first, we are overwhelmed by the magnificence of the harmonies, the awesomeness of the “music”; then when we gradually overcome our initial wonder, we begin to work with the harmonies.
As part of our learning process we witness symphonies of life unlike anything we could ever have imagined. With the help of our more experienced fellow souls as well as the ministers of grace, we mix with the harmonies; we vibrate to their resonance and become as one with them.
We are not allowed to go too deeply into mixing with the “music” because we are not yet ready to do so. If we were not kept toward the outer edges of the harmonies, we would risk becoming spiritually paralyzed and being permanently lost at this stage of our growth.
All reality is the result of the alchemy of seemingly countless sources, acting together, transforming spirit to give it form. The experience in this region is to move ever closer to our awareness of oneness with our surroundings and to renew this attribute within ourselves.
