Seth suggests using the self’s inner eyes, inner vision, which is not restricted or held back by time and space, for the purpose of wider perception of both physical and non-physical reality, much of which escapes our conscious perception. Altered states of consciousness allow for inner perception into these adjacent realities, past, present and future realities. Open your inner eyes.
From: ESP Class Session for June 22, 1971.
Seth: Now I want you to get used to Alpha II and so I would like you to take your eyes off this charming face and close your eyes. Now I want you to realize that your perceptions at this point are limited only because you have previously chosen to limit them. The inner senses, however, are free. Your perception is not ideally limited and it is not practically limited once you realize this. In Alpha I you are used to one short adjacent step away from what you call your consciousness.
Now I want you to take one other step beyond this. I want you to realize that you are indeed highly perceptive, that around you and about you in all directions the inner senses reach. That you are in the midst of other realities. You are in the habit of blocking out, and you are now learning to accept them; to open up your perceptions; to open doors that have been closed.
Therefore, I want you to imagine in your mind Alpha II and a door that has been closed and that now opens. It is an adjacent door. It is a place where you have walked often. You may see different signs and pictures in your mind, individually, as you open this door, for there will be different meanings here for each of you. But I want you to see yourselves opening that door and walking through.
Beyond that door are realities of which you have always known and people with whom you have always been acquainted. I want you to freely open the inner eyes and see their faces. Open the inner core and hear their voices. I want you to walk freely and with joy within these other realities that exist now as surely as this room exists.
I want you, therefore, one by one, to open the inner senses and to direct them along these lines. The physical body will not hinder you. In fact it will help you, for even hidden within the flesh are mechanisms that [will] help the inner senses [to] operate even in this environment. And so one by one, the inner senses can begin to operate so that what you see can become clear, and what you hear can become vocal and clear and strong. I want you to realize that you are getting glimpses of a reality that exists now, in your terms, that existed in the past and, in your terms, it will exist in the future. And a reality that is nevertheless instantaneous and as a part of you as your own heartbeat.
I want you to learn to manipulate in that environment. I want you freely within it to look about. I want you to recognize the core of identity within yourselves that is familiar with this inner environment, for from your viewpoint other realities also open. Other doors that you can also enter; other channels into knowledge that are yours for the asking. I want you to rest now here for a moment. (Long pause.)
Now I want you to continue onward and in your mind visualize, if you prefer, still another door or a path or an avenue, or an alley, or a street, or a landscape; but still another reality that opens adjacently from this one. A reality that is involved with probabilities; and, as you glimpse that reality, you see that it is far vaster, and that it opens up into still other areas and fields and rooms
Now I ask you to return fondly to your image and the knowledge of it. To the intimate knowledge of flesh and bone and cell. To the intimate knowledge of the earth from which now, at least, you spring and to which the seed seems to return, for you have chosen a good teacher, the earth that you have created. Therefore, trust it and open your eyes and return your attention to the room.
