Jane Roberts / Seth
Jane Roberts was born in 1929 in Saratoga Springs, New York. She was one of the first channelers I discovered decades ago, along with Edgar Cayce, which convinced me that there was important information that didn’t fit in with my physics background. Finally, quantum physics now includes multidimensions, nonlocality, and consciousness exploration (see scientists Rupert Sheldrake and Russell Targ for more information).
The Beginning Of Their Spirituality Sessions
In the late 1960s and early 1970s, Jane Roberts and her husband, Robert F. Butts, began a journey that positively expanded the world of channeling and spirituality. They started small group sessions in their home of what they initially called “spirit communication” and later came to be known as channeling. During these sessions, Jane would enter a trance-like state and allow an entity named Seth to communicate through her, while her husband carefully wrote the dialog.
Seth described himself as an “energy personality essence, no longer focused in physical reality.” The teachings that emerged through Jane’s channeling sessions with Seth became the foundation for the Seth Material, a series of books that delves into various aspects of reality, consciousness, and the human experience.
Your Thoughts, Beliefs, and Expectations Manifest Your Reality
One of the key tenets of the Seth Material is the idea that a person creates their own reality through their thoughts, beliefs, and expectations. Seth emphasized the power of the mind to shape personal experiences—asserting that each person is the creator of their own circumstances. This concept resonated with people seeking a more profound understanding of the relationship between consciousness and reality.
I like to call this where “Science meets Spirituality”.
In the early years of the channeling sessions, Jane and Robert were the primary audience for Seth’s teachings. However, as the material became more sophisticated and comprehensive, they decided to share it with a wider audience in their home. The first Seth book, “Seth Speaks: The Eternal Validity of the Soul,” was published in 1972. This book marked the beginning of a series that would eventually include titles such as “The Nature of Personal Reality,” “The Unknown Reality,” and “The Seth Material.”
Seth’s teachings cover a broad range of topics, including the nature of time, the purpose of dreams, the existence of parallel realities, and the interconnectedness of consciousness.
One of the central themes is the idea that each person has access to an inner realm of knowledge and creativity, which can be tapped into through expanded states of consciousness. This perspective aligns with various spiritual traditions that emphasize the importance of inner exploration and self-discovery. As this information reached a wider audience they were flooded with letters asking questions and people even showing up at their home, without invitation.
Throughout the Seth Material, there is a consistent emphasis on the idea that the physical world is a reflection of the inner self. Seth encouraged people to take responsibility for their thoughts and emotions—as these shape the events and circumstances of their lives. This perspective highlighted the empowering potential of self-awareness and conscious creation.
Jane Roberts and Robert Butts continued to channel Seth for over 20 years until Jane’s death in 1984. The Seth Material, comprising many books and recorded sessions, remains a significant contribution to the field of metaphysics and channeling. It has inspired others on their spiritual journeys in the realms of consciousness and personal development.
In addition to her work as a channeler, Jane Roberts was an accomplished author and poet in her own right. She wrote several novels, short stories, and poetry collections, showcasing her literary talent beyond the realm of channeling. Some of her notable works include “The Education of Oversoul Seven” and “The Further Education of Oversoul Seven,” which explore themes of reincarnation and multidimensional existence.
Jane’s contributions to the exploration of consciousness extended beyond the Seth Material. She engaged in experiments related to out-of-body experiences and astral projection, documenting her findings in books such as “Adventures in Consciousness” and “The Seth Material.” Her openness to unconventional ideas and her willingness to explore the frontiers of human experience made her a pioneering figure in the spiritual and metaphysical communities.
Sometimes while channeling Jane would begin speaking in what she called Sumari which cannot be translated—at least not yet. This was a melodious language with distinct vibrational sounds and rhythms which brought forth emotions from those listening.
The teachings of Seth have given us a greater understanding of the nature of reality, consciousness, and the creative power of our mind.
Here are a few of my favorite quotes by Seth:
- “You create your own reality.”
- “The point of power is always in the present moment.”
- “You are given the gifts of the gods; you create your reality according to your beliefs. Yours is the creative energy that makes your world. There are no limitations to the self except those you believe in.”
- “All time is simultaneous. In your terms, all time is simultaneous, and that is a characteristic of the dreaming self.”
- “You are a multidimensional personality. Trust the miracle of your own being.”
In my online courses, I help you discover information that’s important for you to know now, including messages from the channelers I trust to be the best in the world. I also give you scientific information that’s related to these messages—in case your logical left brain, like mine, keeps tapping you on the shoulder, saying “Show me the proof.”
