Council Of Nine
I have read many channeled books, including the series done by Dianne Robbins in which Telos was the first. I have read the extensive channellings of The Urantia Book and for that matter the not so well known book Challenges of Change by Stanley A. Fulham. Now as I finish the book that I have heard and read so much about The Only Planet of Choice by Phyllis Schlemmer and edited by Mary Bennett, I feel compelled to write about The Council of Nine.
I have mixed feelings about the processing of information from telepathic sources (channelling).
On the one hand considering how we treat the men and woman of peace on this planet (Jesus, Gandhi or JFK for that matter), it is a far safer way of introducing information that might be considered radical or revolutionary. On the other hand it requires that we accept on faith information that although may have a ring of truth to it is difficult to prove or substantiate.
At age fifty I have read extensively a wide variety of subjects but my passion has always been for some unexplainable reason, that of ancient cultures and the origins of their myths and legends. There are many sources of information to choose from and that learning to balance these sources with critical thinking and reason can be difficult.
What I have learned from this is that ultimately a balance must be formed in order to give and receive love, to trust your heart and soul and to process knowledge into wisdom.
I have not yet achieved this balance to my satisfaction and am still working on trusting the second most important source of information I know . . . myself!
Learning to trust God as the ultimate source of information has proven to be less difficult than learning to trust my own mind. My own mind has shown that it can justify any behavior and is willing to destroy the body to control it.
This conflict that rages inside me is a direct reflection of how our society has managed to twist and warp logic and wisdom so that it may justify its deeds and actions. The Powers That Be have a complete understanding of how the human mind processes information and reacts to it. TPTB have used this knowledge to control the masses and keep mankind from realizing its full potential.
In the book The Only Planet of Choice the majority of the information is chaneled from a spokesman named Tom for what he calls the Council of Nine. A group of highly spiritual entities that oversee the development of sentient beings in the Universe.
This book and their teachings only confirms my conclusions that it is imperative that I find balance in my life in order to find the inner peace I have been searching for. That learning to trust and love myself maybe the most important lesson I have yet to learn.
This information may help my readers understand the transformation that is taking place, not only in my life but in the lives of many of the souls that live on Earth at this time. That being said let's move on to another intriguing source of information . . . channelling!
Let's face folks the concept of channelling information from divine sources is nothing new and has been going on for thousands of years. The Kaballah comes to mind when thinking of famous channeled works, of course accepting this information as reliable is the tricky part.
The recent revelations of the U.S. Military's use of remote viewers should provide a glimpse into the powers of the human mind/spirit to accurately decipher information metaphysically. Although Remote Viewing is not the same thing as Channelling it shows that humanity is mentally capable of so much more than we are given credit for.
According to what I have read and understand Channelling is a process used to allow a spirit or being that doesn't exist on this dimensional plane to temporarily possess a human body in order to communicate through it. The being then uses the human body to communciate using the host's language.
This process has been used to communicate with the souls of the 'dead' in a saence setting, to communicate with God such as done with the Kaballah text and to also form religions such as the Mormon faith and The Urantia Book (which may not be considered a true religion is pretty close).
Sir John Whitmore Jr. (race car driver and entrepreneur) has this to say about channelling in his forward to the book The Only Planet of Choice.
"There will be those who reject channelling or have an unshakeable aversion to it. I have a lot of empathy with their position myself, but are we dependent upon knowing the source of a message in order to recognize it or accept the wisdom contained therein? Does a good quotation only acquire its power when attributed to Abraham Lincoln, William James or Shakespeare? If we need the name or the fame of the sayer to validate a quotation, are we not abdicating our discrimination and choice?"
One of my pet peeves has always been contempt prior to investigation and if one can get past the method of communication the stories, concepts and ideals of a large majority of channeled material is truly inspiring, especially those of the Council of Nine found in The Only Planet of Choice.
Consider for a moment the differences and similarities between the talking heads we have all seen on TV for generations telling us their version of the News. Here is a method of communication in which the one doing the talking is usually not the source of information but is being paid what to say.
I ask you what is the difference from an entity speaking through someone as opposed to the 'talking heads' we see on TV speaking from previously conceived material and writings?
The majority of channelled information is spiritual, promoting peace with just enough truth in it to be believable, kind of like the evening news without all the murders. So channelling information from spirits unable or unwilling to show themselves on our physical plane isn't all that much of a stretch. Consider if telepathic communication was the normal way in which beings communicate, just because we lack the ability . . . or do we, should we just so easily dismiss it.
Gene Roddenberry was so impressed by the Council of Nines' channelling he created his not so unbelievable Star Trek world based on their messages. It is no coincidence that one of his shows went by the title Deep Space Nine and involved a giant wormhole that lead to the Gods in an area of space that wasn't subject to third dimensional space or linear time.
According to the Council of Nine or Nine as they are known, many humans have been used as channellers throughout history to deliever information and raise the consciousness of this planet without directly interferring with it, sounds suspiciously like the 'prime directive' doesn' it.
Here are some of the names they have mentioned in the book The Only Planet of Choice.
- Jesus of Nazereth
- Joseph ( the one in Egypt )
- Leonardo Da Vinci
Channelling may not be the most effective way to get your agenda out to the masses but it surely is the safest. Of course the medium, in this case Phyllis Schlemmer, is subject to ridicule and harassment from those demanding proof.
Deep Space Nine
The Council of Nine
In one of the first transmissions from The Nine (1975) Gene Roddenberry asks the medium who it is that he is speaking to. He is told
I am Tom. I am the spokesperson for the Council of Nine. In truth I am Tehuti. Yes. I am also Hamarkos, I am the Herenkar, I am known as Thomas and I am known as Atum.
During these transmissions through Phyllis many people are there to ask questions including some prominent names such as Gene Roddenberry, Sir John Whitmore Jr. and Dr. Andrija Puharich (Andrew).
One such question lead to a lengthy and well described definition of what and who The Council of Nine really are.
Andrew: I was particularly interested in the 'Hamarkos'. Could you tell us . . .
Tom: I am the day, and I am the evening, and I am the mid-noon.
Andrew: How did the Egyptians come to build and name the Sphynx after you?
Tom: You found the secret, the true knowledge of that will be related at another time. But the original time I was on the Planet Earth or identified with your Planet Earth was 34,000 of your years ago. I am the balance. And when I say 'I' - I mean because I am an emissary for the Nine. It is not I , but it is the group. And the principle of the Nine is infinite intelligence, and what we try to bring to this planet is this type of intelligence.
We are of Nine principles of the Universe, yet together we are one. We are separate and we are one at the same time.
Each represents a portion of energy, knowledge, wisdon, love, kindness, technology, and in coninuity it goes on until each portion of a spiral is composed of all that is important to bring complete understanding to each atom, until it becomes one with us. There are in actuality multiplications and more, but in principle there are Nine.
We are what is identified ( in the Hebriac tradition ) as the Elohim. We wish you to know we are not God. We are collective and become one. We wish you to know that we are you as you are we. You created us, and out of that creation you were created. Do not underestimate who you are, and your ability.
Andrew asks for clarification in the physical sense and is told it is beyond his limited comprehension. They finally agree that the best physical description would be that they are a soul, a non physical entity.
Andrew: You are soul. Now, in your relationship to the Nine for example - are the Nine the same as you are?
Tom: We are one and the same.
Andrew: I see. And then could you explain the profound mystery: why there are nine basic manifestations of, I guess we should use the term 'God' for lack of a better term?
Tom: I will try to explain in a manner in which you could understand. Nine is complete. Everything is nine. In your world you have said seven so many times, when everything is truly nine. There are nine chakras, which are the nine principles and nine elements of what you call God. There are nine bands around this Planet Earth. There are nine etheric bodies, and the purpose of growing your etheric bodies or going through your transformations and transitions is to attain the nine etheric bodies. Nine is a complete number, it is whole. When you go over nine it cancels, it becomes one, and nine is complete. This does not change.
But remember this: we ourselves are not God. All of you and all of us make God.
The book goes on to impress upon the reader the importance that each and everyone of us has the power to change the World through meditation and positive thinking. The message is one of hope and self awareness and ecourages the reader to find balance in their lives through meditation and action (doing the right thing).
The Council of Nine bring a message of hope, love and understanding while tempering it with action in the form of doing the right thing for others first and yourself second. The Council of Nine impress the importance of meditation and prayer and ask the reader to learn these simple disciplines as a way of helping to heal the world.
- Pineal Gland the God Organ
The pineal gland or third eye as it is known in the Hindu religion is said to be a direct link to the Divine Source. This article explains the purpose of this organ, what is known and how it works. According to Descartes it is the seat of the soul an
- Dream Not of Today
Dream Not of Today explores the concept of Panspermia introduced through a Star Trek The Next Generation episode. DNA as a complex Cosmic Algorithm and the origin of the Human species.
What the Nine seemed to be saying is that the Planet Earth is a bottleneck in the evolution of the Universe, because the souls that live on the Planet Earth are either unwilling or incapable of making the transition to a higher plane of existence.
That these souls which is basically me, you and everybody else in the world are unwilling to learn the value of peace and prefer to be reincarnated on this planet to experience this reality over and over again.
The Nine are basically saying that our inability to get beyond greed, selfishness, lust and the 'Others' (people of Service To Self orientation) prevents us from learning the lesson our soul is supposed to learn on this planet. Our own selfish thinking is prevented us from moving to the next spiritual and evolutionary level.
They go on to say that the biggest thing that is holding us back is our own ignorance of our selves. That religion has failed to install in us a greater purpose and that we are at a disatvantage technologically due to the censorship of information.
However it does offer some very positive and realistic solutions, including ways to improve the mind through meditative practices. The Nine relates to us that twenty-four universal civilizations under their direction are helping to make the Earth's transition to the next level of spiritual existence and that Full Disclosure is necessary.
Of course part of the message is that the Earth is in transition and that many paths are possible including the almost complete destruction, through pollution and other disasters, of our planet.
In The Only Planet of Choice the Council of Nine make it perfectly clear that it is up to each and everyone of us to create our world through love, understanding and acceptance . . .
And that we have the power to do so!

I rarely read a book twice (Dune was one exception), I'm currently reading the material by Dolores Cannon. As a matter of fact I have a Hypnotic Regression Therapy Session schedule for this month, in which I hope to find out why I have such an incredible desire for learning the true nature of mankind and its history.
I suspect that I am a 'Wanderer' or 'Volunteer' and that I have come to this planet to try to help humanity raise its vibrational frequency . . . ? I don't 'think' like most humans I know and this has been proven to me since I was a little kid, over and over again.
I don't require companionship like most humans and am perfectly content with a good book 0r alone in the forest or mountains.I go days sometimes without ever talking to anyone, so it seems a little odd.
My belief in channeling has changed over the years and I am much more accepting to the information delivered, after all the truth is what you feel in your heart.
Nadine May from Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa on February 04, 2014:
What a fantastic article on Channeling. I have read the book; The Only Planet of Choice several times. It's one of my collector items I will never part with. For me it was one of the most influential books about our history in consciousness. Well done!
Mike Marks on June 11, 2012:
ok, you want me to trust the information that spoke to me... was it God or my subconscious, I don't know, it doesn't matter... WhatWas found the first word, and the first word was marked by Presence of Self aware of Presence... a silent word but an awakening word... a wavelength up and down like the M of man and the W of woman holding hands... the circle O singularity saw the split of U and U a circle divided upper lower side to side... and the double U's spoke W's the first basic questions and upon "where" space be and upon "when" time be created before the creator knew 'who' created 'what" created "who how"... so 1 became 2 as the singularity looked upon it's self to know it's self and the relationship between 1 and 1 is a third, and 3 looked upon itself and knew 6 and two sets of 3 looked at each other and arrived at 666 and power was unleased free and out of control... the 1 had become many, variety, Creation, and every part, every segment, a Creator creating... Who created who? Who is God? Did I create you or did you create me? Who's the Original, the King, the Queen, the Dragon, the Owner, the safe and invincible Power... original bliss had passed and It wished to regain original bliss and proceeded carefully 1 step at a time to 7... perfection perfectly uninspiring... must move on but what if I make it worse, maybe I should leave well enough 7 be... infinite 8, two singularity circles intwined, more controlled, just a bit more, 3+3+3... 9...stop! Enough. See the future: imagine another 3 but don't bring it into being... 12... beware, don't move pass 12, be done before 13 beyond which may be another horrible 666... 9 is best... to want more than 9 is to have less... to return to 1, to 0, to Oblivion, the place of no thought, of no sense, of no perceived Presence, may be as is to be dead, and the miracle of preceived Presence awakening may not occur again.

No I haven't read Ingo's book but I did read The Psychic Warrior by David Morehouse who I believe was trained by Swan or knew him.
I'm currently reading Two Thirds by Myers/Percy which maybe the most important book ever written.
Yes, many of the books that reveal the truth are very difficult to get, have been censored or are so expensive it is hard to justify buying them.
The cheapest copy of The Infinite Harmony I could find was 200 dollars! Still haven't read it but want to . . . !
Vasiliki Bouras on June 06, 2012:
Have you heard of the remote viewing by Ingo Swann? He wrote "Penetration" and his experience on the Dark Side of the Moon? Read that twice (Go on Amazoon to see how much that book costs! Just for kicks..go see.) What I had done was printed the book page by page, and binded it myself. This is a must read.
I have the book of Urantia-granted I did not read the whole thing...it's thicker than a bible!
The other books you mentioned in the article are new to me, will do some research on that...very interesting hub!

Hmm channeling? Telepathy? Yes I do believe they exist but proving them to exist is a whole other ball-game. And although I believe channeling does exist I also know for a fact that the system can be taken advantage of - for example, purposely injecting subliminal messages into the information which is being channeled - it's basic psychology. It's so easy to put an idea into someone's head without them being aware of where that idea truly originated.

Ah Yes . . . they say ignorance is bliss and when I began my journey down the rabbit hole of knowledge I was warned that my life would change fundamentally and would never be the same again . . . alas they were right!
The climb to the truth is difficult with many obstacles and yet the view is awesome!
Ruth Clark from Arkansas, USA on May 22, 2012:
A vote up of course for a very interesting and well written article - another thought provoking topic that demands further study. I admit that I know less than nothing about the Council of Nine although I've heard of it somewhere.
When I read something like this I must investigate. I will never be satisfied with standing still if standing still were even possible. Humankind is always moving, either backward or forward.
Thanks for making me think even though I am lazy and would like to stay in my ignorance.
I hate change and embrace it and reach for it even as I pretend that I am happy with things as they are. I don't want the responsibility of being granted more and can't help but accept it when it comes to me.

Praise be the Unity, my brother!

Insane Mundane from Earth on May 20, 2012:
We are all apart of this thing we call "God."
Hey, nine is my favorite number, for whatever that's worth.
The Earth is hosting Elementary school (Kindergarten through 3rd grade) right now, as the 4th graders are currently considered misfits around here and just think, this place used to be High School, long ago...
It is all one big endless journey, like a bunch of divine tentacles from one source feeling and learning new things via different channels and levels of awareness; creation never ends, and it is all about the experience; praise be the unity! I give you a "Kudos" for this Hub; cheers!
