A Gateway to Soul Travel

By Harold Klemp

If you are interested in Soul Travel, you can try this technique tonight in the dream state. Before sleep, close your eyes and place your attention very gently on the Spiritual Eye. Then sing HU, and fill yourself with love.

This feeling of love is needed to give you the confidence to go forward into an unknown, unexplored area. One way to fill yourself with love is by calling up the warm memory of a past occasion that filled you with pure love.

Then look inwardly for the individual who is your ideal at this time—whether it is Christ or one of the ECK Masters. In a very gentle way, say, “I give you permission to take me to the place that I have earned for my greatest spiritual unfoldment.” And then silently or out loud, continue to chant HU, God, or another holy word.

Try to visualize yourself walking into the inner worlds, and know that the individual who comes to meet you is a dear friend.

If it doesn’t work the first time, do it again and again. The spiritual exercises are like physical exercises: before your muscles grow strong, you have to exercise them a number of times; it doesn’t always happen in one try. It’s quite likely that if you take up an exercise routine for thirty days, you’re going to be stronger than you were at the beginning.

    Cet exercice est simple mais efficace. Merci Mahanta pour les enseignements Eck.

    Filling one’s self with love is vital. The aim is to set the tone for the rest of the spiritual exercise. Sometimes, if a Soul Travel experience doesn’t occur, you might find yourself in a very vivid dream. Another way to fill yourself with love is via surrender. As we surrender our problems or desires in contemplation, love comes in. As Harold Klemp observes:

    “No matter what we are faced with, Soul must eventually come to the point where It says, ‘I know there is a way. I may not know at this moment what it is, but there is always a way.’ When this surrender to the Mahanta occurs, the door will open wider, allowing enough love in to let you meet the obstacle or challenge at hand. It will always do this. But being aware of it and being able to accept it depends on the individual’s ability to surrender to this principle of life—to the Holy Spirit, the ECK. In so doing, you rise to the pinnacle of the spiritual worlds and enter the kingdom of heaven.”

    —Harold Klemp, Unlocking the Puzzle Box, Mahanta Transcripts, Book 6, Pg. 80

    By way of illustration from my own life: very recently I surrendered a major issue I had with a family member to the ECK and Mahanta then carried on chanting various charged words. When I fell asleep I found myself in full consciousness with the very individual I had an issue with.

    Reading the piece above, a short success story on Soul Travel just came to mind.
    Doing the above spiritual exercise was more of a norm. There wasn’t any expectation since I have not had any success of late.
    So this particular spiritual exercise was just one of those things.
    I felt the experience should have continued.
    Bed time was near with very limited time in front of the television. I was still seated when I opened my eyes after such a beautiful Soul Travel experience.
    I found myself floating in the cloud in an upright position as if Ii was walking in there. I could recognize very many countries I float past them.
    I told myself, “Oh, this is Spain,” this Holland and the likes.
    Finally, I landed in England. I could recognize the compound was going into. The amazing thing is that I met some ECKists from my Local ECK Centre. An ECK Programme was on.
    That’s what I went for. Interestingly, the feeling was beyond words. I didn’t want the experience end.
    But it did.
    Thanks to Wah Z for this wonderful Soul Travel Experience. I wish it comes in a regular bases.
