Second Life or SL, is a virtual world accessed via the internet where many thousands of people share experience together in their avatar bodies. Like any world, much goes on within it, since all but the environment and land (simulated land) is created by those participating within it. So there is everything from Roller Derby and horseback riding to universities having a presence in SL, where one can take courses and receive actual degrees within specific subjects. NASA is also in SL as well as many large corporations, as it has been proven to be a far more productive platform for doing business globally…more so than Skyping or conference calls, and certainly less expensive and time-consuming than traveling to other countries.
There is a psychology deep within the human mainframe that tells us having a “body” present in interactions with others makes it more “real” and therefore effective in communicating the nuances we wish to express to one another. The avatar bodies in SL are very sophisticated and realistic. They breath, blink, walk and can be given specific gestures that make it “you.” All avatars are not the same, anymore than are all human forms. One can speak, text, stream music and videos “in-world.”
The spiritual communities of SL have a strong presence and are growing. I have been very active in Second Life since 2008. I consider it to have saved my life, as I was very ill at the time, weighing only 69 pounds. When I came into SL and had a healthy body, could ride horses, dance and develop close friendships with people all over the world…I began to come out of that dark hole. My mind believed what it could see – a happy world filled with healthy, beautiful people…and I was one of them. Yes, one can take such an experience too far and disappear from the Outer…but that could be said of meditation as well. Most people use it to give them hope and a sense of well-being in their daily lives. In SL judgement from others is far less. The extent of creativity even a physically challenged person can display is amazing in-world.
There is an Etheric Living Light Center above the land of Creations Park, which is a non-profit focused on Parkinson’s Disease research and a place where those afflicted can come in their avatar bodies not only for support groups but to dance and do many things their physical bodies will no longer allow them to do.
Even the blind can participate. There is a special viewer that aids them in experiencing Second Life.
I wish to impart to you the power of this virtual world for spiritual communion, healing and life-giving. Science shows that those active in the Virtual while electrodes are attached to the brain, are firing the same synapses they would if they were physically doing these things.
When I first discovered and became a part of Second Life I did so for well, three reasons.
1) I am a very visual and creative person and SL was made for visual creatives.
2) I was quite ill with colitis and adrenal problems, I saw SL as a way to see myself as healthy and active (and thus create that reality).
3) I recognized aspects of this virtual world as being a first level stage in creating a “New Earth” experience for the individual and thus groups of individuals. This was further confirmed to me by my inner-planes mentor of many years, Thoth.
As a result, I also created an avatar of Thoth.
I present you here with a video about two friends of mine in Second Life: mother and daughter. I believe you will find it very inspiring and quite amazing . . .
(note: this video was made some years ago. SL is even more realistic now.)
And this one too . . .
My New Earth Star Sanctuary
I wish to make it clear that I am not seeing virtual worlds supplant the need for physical ones. Remember, we all live in a hologram. Thoth tells us not to think that a hologram is not real. Everything is real if we observe / interact with it.
What Second Life and it’s future virtual worlds gives us is a springboard into the experience of New Earth formation…creating pixel by pixel in our brains and holographic sensors, the ascension codes of the New Earth Hologram. You don’t have to participate personally in Second Life or other virtual worlds…those of us who are drawn to do so, are opening the way for the collective human experience of the “New Hologram” – for we are all connected.
