Liberating-Jesus---CoverWith all the terrorist threats, bombings, random shootings, and religious wars going on these days, isn’t it about time humanity began reflecting on the REAL teachings of the Great Master Jesus once again? I feel that the book, “Liberating Jesus,” which I am reviewing here, is extremely timely! And this is coming from someone (myself) who does not practice any religion at all. And so if you read this book you will realize that all religions have done is to obscure the true teachings of God / Jesus! So I feel, along with the author, that it is high time for a Reset!

The purpose of the book “Liberating Jesus” by Roberta Grimes is to extricate the teachings of Jesus from the dogma of Christianity. The time for this book is NOW! Roberta Grimes’ story and how she came to write this book is intriguing. She had previously written two books about the Afterlife: “The Fun of Dying” and The Fun of Staying in Touch. If you’ve followed my writings over the past several years, you’ll know that the study of The Afterlife has been a primary interest of mine and I have read hundreds of books on the subject. And so when I discovered that Roberta Grimes had written a ‘channeled’ book from Jesus, I was intrigued. Normally I would avoid any book that had seemingly religious overtones, but somehow this one stood out and I am glad that I looked deeper.

Here are a few accolades from Amazon: “WOW – What a revelation! This book will open your eyes to what we should be R-Grimesfocusing on – Jesus and his message of love and forgiveness. We should be listening to His message, not what religious dogma tells us.” “Liberating Jesus” will make even an ATHEIST believe because…IT MAKES SENSE! Love is all there ever was and ever will be! You do not have to be a Christian to be moved by this book. It transcends religion.” “Liberating! Perfect title for this book, because it frees you from the limitations that Christianity has placed on us.” “Grimes’ book makes an important contribution to understanding the New Revelation by showing that the teachings of Jesus are consistent with what has been revealed by mediums, afterlife researchers, and quantum theorists.” “And that message pertains to the end of materialism, the end of organized religion as we know it, and development of a personal spirituality.”

The story of just how Roberta Grimes became a channel for Jesus is told in one appendix of the book and would take up space than I have room for here, but it certainly provides a great foundation and credibility for how the book came to be. She had always been very religious and even gained a degree in religious studies in college. After her extensive research into the Afterlife and the publishing of two books on the Afterlife she began to realize that her fundamentalist Christian beliefs could not hold up to what she had learned about life from high level beings on the Otherside.
There were just too many cross-correspondences that proved that the spiritual truths she was learning seemed to outline a far greater truth over what mainstream religion had been teaching for centuries. At that moment I guess you could say that she had a ‘spiritual crises.’ This crises culminated in early 2015 when she had a reading from a well-known medium so she could speak to her dead mother. And it was during that reading that she was put in contact with her primary spiritual guide, Thomas Jefferson.

T-JeffersonShe had always had an affinity for Thomas Jefferson and many people know that Thomas Jefferson was famous for assembling his own version of a “Red Letter Bible” which was designed to highlight just the words and philosophy of Jesus and nothing else. According to smithsonianmag.com “Jefferson was devoted to the teachings of Jesus Christ. But he didn’t always agree with how they were interpreted by biblical sources, including the writers of the four Gospels, whom he considered to be untrustworthy correspondents. So Jefferson created his own gospel by taking a sharp instrument, perhaps a penknife, to existing copies of the New Testament and pasting up his own account of Christ’s philosophy, distinguishing it from what he called “the corruption of schismatizing followers.”

So to make a long story short, soon after making contact with her guide, Thomas Jefferson, she began having her own early morning automatic writing sessions with Jefferson and then also with Jesus as well. And so this was how Liberating Jesus was written. In effect, Roberta grimes had become a modern day prophet or channel. The objective was to provide a modern day revelation concerning the clearest possible message coming from God/Jesus for humankind today.

According to grimes, (We are basically discussing the four Gospels of the New Testament here.) we can dispense with most of the Old Testament which is confusing and fear-based. Jesus came to teach us Love and Forgiveness. Period. The Churches have distorted and confused the Bible and the teachings of Jesus to gain control of the masses. And so far it has worked. However, all we have to do is look at the state of our world today to witness the results of that teaching.

This may come as a surprise to some of you, but Jesus and his philosophy was never meant to be ‘owned’ by any religion. The current crop of Christian churches (so-called) claim to preach the un-erring gospel of God and His representative on Earth, Jesus. At last count there were over 4,000 divisions of Christianity. Can they all be right? (No) The problem is that most all of them grossly distort the truth based upon a fear-based egoic point of view for use as a control mechanism of the masses and this book, Liberating Jesus sets out to show us the Truth of what Jesus was really trying to communicate 2,000 some years ago.

I leave you with a quote from Roberta’s book: “The Gospel teachings of Jesus are our surest route to rapid spiritual growth. Until we actually begin to live by the philosophy that Jesus taught, humankind will continue to flounder. More generations will be born and die while making too little spiritual progress, and we will spiral toward the religious war that was predicted long ago in a madman’s ravings. God’s Kingdom on earth still is possible! But it requires that we leave religious dogmas behind as the spiritual crutch that they are so we can work together to elevate humankind toward God’s level of awareness. Jesus is calling upon Christians now to spread His teachings to the modern world. And if you have read this far, then perhaps He is in particular calling to you.”

If you want to be part of the solution for the problems of the world, hit the Reset button now and get this book, read it and practice what it says!

What makes Past Life Regression Therapy so powerful and effective? By now I have probably read a dozen or more books on Past Life Regression Therapy. Some of the books were written by Ph.D. therapists and they cite case after case of how they used hypnosis to access deep levels of memory to heal difficult issues that could not be healed through traditional Freudian or Jungian style “talk therapy.”

Brian-Weiss-MD Past Life Regression Therapy in its modern form was famously accidentally re-discovered and then reluctantly promoted by hypnotherapist Dr. Brian Weiss when while working with a difficult case he, out of frustration asked his subject to ‘go back to a time related to the cause’ of her current issue. Before trying this idea, he had been fishing around in session after session trying to find the cause in the woman’s childhood. So he was shocked when her sub-conscious mind literally obeyed the command and took her back to a past-life situation centuries earlier.

At first Dr. Weiss could not fathom what had happened, and he was in deep denial, but the ‘proof was in the pudding’ as they say, and after some time Dr. Weiss realized that his patient no longer suffered from the same issue. This made a deep impression upon him.

Dr. Weiss was not the first to discover the benefits of Past Life Therapy. Back in the late 1920s there was a man named A. R. (Asa Roy) Martin who lived in Sharon, Pennsylvania who accidentally discovered and then developed his own method of past life regression therapy while trying to develop a better method of memory recall for use by students in taking tests. Little by little, Martin and his family and friends – working on each other – became successful in these experiments.

A.R. MARTINSince Mr. Martin had been studying metaphysics and hypnosis, the death of his mother prompted him to try use what he had learned to tap into the subconscious mind for answers to the questions about death and the afterlife, “since the subconscious theoretically remembers everything it has encountered and learned.”

Mr. Martin then tried relaxing some of his subjects (family members and friends) using what he had learned in hypnosis. One such session related by Mrs. Woods, one of Martin’s daughters went like this: “Then… quite suddenly, the reviewer (the subject) would be recalling a past life, speaking in a different voice or language – a high pitched voice or a child’s voice, for example – or many times reviewing what she was doing between lives, how she was planning to return to a physical body and was choosing her parents. For example, a woman who desired to be an opera singer was selecting parents who genetically could give her the vocal cords which would be required to accomplish her goal in her next life.”

A.R. Martin came to know Edgar Cayce and visited Cayce in Virginia about five times, the first time probably in 1935. ThroughEdgar Cayce those visits, Mrs. Woods says, Martin and Cayce became friends, and some correspondence passed between them. Martin never had a reading from Cayce, however. Cayce died in 1945.

It is estimated that A. R. Martin conducted over 500 past-life regressions before he gave it up for other spiritual work, so “it is really not possible to gauge the impact of Martin’s regression work or its continuity through time after Martin’s death. However, considering the large number of people Martin came in contact with after 1928, it would be surprising to find that no one had continued his work with past-life regression.

Martin self-published Researches in Reincarnation and Beyond – a hardcover book of 211 pages – in 1942. However, since it is such a rare book, much of the details for this article came from a small Kindle book titled, A. R. MARTIN: Pioneer In Past-Life Regression by George Schwimmer, PhD. As one book reviewer stated, “A.R. Martin did so much with past life regression… so long ago. The book he wrote was produced in an edition of 1,000 copies so obviously not something we would come across very easily. George Schwimmer not only describes Martin’s unusual regression method but also how his wife and daughters assisted him in this work. The booklet [also] contains amazing stories of past lives that the people he worked with had experienced. A.R. Martin was a true pioneer in this [work]. If you are interested in reincarnation and/or past life regression, this booklet contains some really amazing information.

The most distinctive characteristic of the book is its focus on the spiritual values of past-life recall. In his introduction, Hamid Bey noted the purpose of Earth life and of reincarnation: “Reincarnation (is) the only logical acceptance of justice, power, law, and love…. It is not only the evolution of the spirit, but also the liberation of the spirit from the confinement of substance. This cannot be accomplished in one life…. Man must be able to accept the responsibility of life and know that even though he is a unit of this universe, he is also the center of his universe, and this center is so complete within itself that he has become the expression of the divine power which we call God.”

And A. R. Martin wrote that: “The superconscious mind or self is the highest portion of man, for it is the eternal spark of the Divine…. The purpose of life is to bring ourselves into perfect alignment with this Higher Self. When man in sincere simplicity attunes himself through silence to this great God within, all power, all strength, and all knowledge is perceived by him, and he becomes I AM THAT I AM…. When all error and misbelief has been erased from the subconscious mind and the conscious mind operates in perfect unison with the superconscious, then is man the master of himself. Those things which the soul desires are the things to which he polarizes and wishes to express, and as every unfulfilled wish of the soul must be expressed, man must come back again and again into earthly flesh to fulfill those desires. There is a lesson to be learned in every unfulfilled desire, and all these lessons must be learned before man is master of himself.”

And one of Martin’s entranced subjects stated, “To what goal? Eventually to their main goal, the right of Christhood. Mankind will then know all there is to know, all he can gain upon the planet earth. …Each will become a Christ….”

Past Life Regression Therapy is not only a method for healing difficult issues, but when used intelligently can become a fast track to liberation! Martin’s conclusions about man’s mental experiences were identical to those given by Edgar Cayce: “Man lives not in the world of conditions and events around him, but rather lives in the world of his reactions to such conditions and events…. The individual himself, through thought and emotional reaction, creates the world in which he lives, and he alone has the power and choice to change in any and every way, through his inner thought reactions, his inner and outer world of conditions and affairs. The life energy… flows in and through all space and matter [and] is unlimited, fluidic and impersonal. As this emotional energy flows in and through man, it is he – as a free-choosing moral agent – who conditions and qualifies it.”

My desire for anyone who resonates with this work is to seek out a qualified Past Life Regressionist for yourself! Today there are many options including therapists trained by Dolores Cannon and others.
