God’s Will and the Iron Rod

Often times when individuals  encounter an out of body experience they visualize themselves holding onto an iron rod. The consensus of opinion is that if they would let go of the iron rod, death would be certain, or they would leave the body and not be able to return.

In my own personal experience, several years ago, I too had a similar experience. It was a time  previous to my first hypnotic regression when I regressed to my first past life . While enjoying a Sunday afternoon nap, I suddenly felt my body start to vibrate and as it did, I sensed my consciousness  rise and begin to leave my physical form. As it did, fear set in and as a result, I immediately
re-entered my physical body lying motionless on the couch.

Trying to remain in a relaxed state, I was able to overcome the fear and as I did , my consciousness again began to rise. As my soul was released from the body, I looked up to my left arm that was laying above my head. My hand was clutched tightly to an iron rod, somehow I knew if I let go of the rod, I wouldn’t be able to re-enter my physical body.

This was my first experience with this sort of thing and had previously never heard of an iron rod, therefore there was no previous life
experience or knowledge to affect my thinking. as a result I began  thinking, “what is the deal with this iron rod, and how does it
relate to life and death?”

As is the case when life’s revelations occur, it took many years and perfect timing for the answer to come to me. After searching for
answers most of my life, the iron rod theory escaped my line of thought
and never thought much about it after that particular afternoon.

In my years of searching for Truth, one of my avenues of search was the Mormon Church.  I had joined  and attended semi regularly for a while and then quit going altogether.. After an eight year hiatus, I started attending again. During services one Sunday morning,  I was nonchalantly flipping through the hymnal, when I suddenly was jolted out of my daze. There in front of me was a hymn entitled, “The Iron Rod.” With my attention aroused, I began reading the words of the song.

Near the bottom in the chorus, was my answer, the iron rod is the word of God.Now, it all made sense, it isn’t so much needing to hold on to the iron rod, it’s needing to hold onto the Word of God.  The iron rod is a symbol of the steadiness of God’s word and our need to remain steadfast in our beliefs. As long as we remain true to our core values it doesn’t matter where our journey takes us, the iron hand of God will be with us.

At this period of time in the history of man, there is probably more individual searching being done into the theories behind the origin of the human race,what happens after death,the possibility of life on other planets, and what our relationship is to these life forms, if they do exist. There are millions of people who are questioning the existence of God, who he really is, and what is my relationship with him? Is he someone who mysteriously floats around on a cloud watching and judging us from above like some bigger than life Santa Claus, or is he, like many of the esoteric sciences claim, a part of our inner Self, whom we have constant contact with, someone whom we and everything in the universe are connected and are thus one? Each of us in our own way is experiencing what God is, and thus we are each a part of God, thus we are God! This book is a brief account of my search for my own truth as I know it today, everything stated actually happened, according to my own perception. It has been an exciting search, at times very frustrating, very rewarding, and above all, very fulfilling. My main purpose in writing this book is to show that anyone, even a bashful unfamous country boy can have these awakenings, you don’t have to be rich or well-known to find your connection to Divine Source.

Available in both paperback and ebook format
