Spiritwalker – Messages from the Future was written by Hank Wesselman, and published in 1995.? This book landed on the GiveAway Table at the Reiki Healing Circle sometime over the winter – I picked it up for me as soon as I saw it, and sometime around Valentine’s Day, started to read it.? I just finished it on Leap Day.
Wiki has a bio on him, and a listing of the books he’s written since then, which are listed as a trilogy.? He and his wife Jill Kuykendall teach shamanism and awakening workshops around the country and the planet.
According to Wesselman, Spiritwalker is a memoir – his account of actual happenings.? And it could be so, it might be so.? There are spots in which all is quite preachy, which most folk on the other side seem to me to avoid.? (The other side meaning the dead, Spirits, etc.)? Although Seth, the discarnate entity of the Jane Roberts books, also goes on and on.
The story is of Wesselman in the late 1980s, left-brained Ph.D. scientist, living on the side of an active volcano in Hawaii, suddenly having powerful visions, usually just before dawn (and just after lovemaking), when he is seeing through the eyes of a Hawaiian kahuna mystic, who is living 5,000 years in our future.? In this future, California / Nevada is a rainforest, there is a huge inland lake, and the people are hunter gatherers.
Not a very promising future from our point of view, is it?? In fact, I am 98% comfortable that Dr. Wesselman had these experiences.? What my intuition goes off about is this dreary future, particularly given his personal concern about the dire prognosis of the combined effects of overpopulation and climate change.
Even on the spiritual path, we often see what we expect to see, have the experiences we expect to have, to validate the beliefs that life has shown us thus far.
My intuition shows me a much simpler life, where we are learning the lessons of joy.? Nothing in me resonates to this dystopian vision with an overlay of mystic spirituality.? This vision feels disturbing to me – possibly since it doesn’t validate the beliefs that life has shown me thus far.? 😕 >
If this book or others of his run into you – you might consider reading them.? At the least, you’ll learn a lot about shamanistic practices and experiences.
