The following is one of the very first pieces I ever consciously channelled. It began as an experiment to see if I could indeed be a channel myself without the need to go into deep trance as a number of authors who channelled certain personalities seemed to have to do. Personally I couldn’t understand the need, it seemed to me that they were trying very hard not to take responsibility for the knowledge that was obviously within them and was coming through them by whatever means (although I now wholeheartedly acknowledge and respect that everyone has their own ways of doing things. It’s about whatever works best). I had only just been introduced to the Seth books at that time, so my training in metaphysics proper had only just begun. I really didn’t expect very much at the age of 22 for my own efforts at being a ‘psychic channel’. I hadn’t yet developed the sense of self-trust that I now have (hard won I might add!).
I remember in those early days that I didn’t really understand much of what I channelled, but it often resounded very strongly within me on some level so I knew that it was important and that one day it would make sense to me.
I was inspired to write a contract with myself by way of initiating myself on this path of self discovery, not believing for one minute that I would stick to it. I wasn’t really very good at that time at sticking to anything for very long. However, what I hadn’t realised was how tricky my inner-self could be, and the following piece as it unfolded left me feeling as though I had been out-foxed, by an obviously much wiser portion of myself no less!
As it turns out, it really is the only contract that I have ever been able to stick to with almost Jesuit-like fervour, and will be until the day that I decide to close this particular door in my existence. My intuitive self was right. That sly devil! 🙂
this contract with yourself will be the most important one you will ever make, knowing that you will only keep to one, and this is to know yourself. With this in mind I leave you with the wisdom of life itself, as you know it not.
Contracts are one thing but love is another, so make this a contract of self-love and watch how you grow despite doubt.
Welcome us into your life though we have never left your side. Breathe us alive as we breathe you alive, and know that we will be with you as eternity knows its name. Make this not a contract of fear but of peace and unity. Look beyond the life that you have and listen to those of others.
Remembering is what you came here for.
This soul is on a journey who knows not its end, but who has a good idea where it wants to go. Home.

I haven’t actually laid eyes on the contract that I made with myself for a considerable number of years now. Reading it again left me somewhat dumbstruck. However recently I have been reading one of many off-shoot Seth related books written by a friend and ex-student of Jane Roberts (who originally channelled the Seth personality). As I reached the end of the book, I found the following on the final page, a conversation between another of Jane’s ESP class students and Seth. As I read the last line my heart skipped several beats and I had one of those ‘awakening’ moments and a peculiar sense of deja-vu!
SETH: “My dear friend – one more time!”
WARREN: “All That Is knows of the portion of himself that is us. Is there…”
SETH: “All That Is does indeed know himself, or itself, and wakens to itself as you.”
WARREN: “Is there a part that sent us out, similar to All That Is, that knows each part of us that is?”
SETH: “There is indeed”
WARREN: “Is there any way that we can make ourselves aware of the portion that sent us?”
SETH: “There is indeed.”
WARREN: “What is it?”
SETH: “Know yourself.”(Susan Watkins: Conversations with Seth, Moment Point Press, 2005)
“You are your best judge, and harshest critic. Listen to everything you have to say to yourself, because it is important and very relevant to who you are and who you will inevitably become. Think big, be creative and don’t shy away from the challenge of life no matter how steep the climb. Develop strong legs and find your way to the summit. There is a great view up there!”
Love to all!
