Recall of Friendships from Period Between Lives and Life Mission Training

In an article published in Conscientia magazine, IAC Germany's Anne-Catrin Vogt publishes an intimate and inspiring personal account of a recalled experience from the pre-birth, preparatory, period between lives. Today, the author taught the course inspired by the experience for the first time in London. Stay tuned for the next opportunity to watch it live or online via our Google calendars of activities or our Facebook page, both accessible via our homepage.

The Sense of Interconnection: Penta Experience
by Anne-Catrin Vogt, IAC Germany

Source: Conscientia magazine, 13(1): 83-86, jan./mar., 2009
Original in Portuguese: O Senso de Interconectividade: Experiência na Tenepes
Translation: Nelson Abreu


The author addresses the retrocognition of a group dynamics experienced during the intermissive course. The phenomenon took place during a PENTA (personal energetic task) session. Based on this experience, it is being proposed the term sense of interconnection to describe the value attributed to the para-bond or the interconsciential relation between the intermissive course mates.

Keywords: Interconnectiveness, Parabond, Reurbanization

Responding to the invitation to participate in the roundtable PENTA around the World of the V Forum on PENTA and the II International Meeting of PENTA Practitioners, I selected an experience that took place during a PENTA session on March 6, 2009 at my residence at the time in southern Germany. The objective of this personal account is to describe a retrocognition, which I consider a consciential extrapolation, and to reflect and discuss about the topic of interconnection among the participants of the intermissive course.

I find this topic is related to the entry “Para-linked” in the Encyclopedia of Conscientiology, within the specialty of psychosomatics. According to the author, “the para-link is a para-groove inscribed in the subtle structure of the psychosoma of the intraphysical consciousness when it was still an extraphysical consciousness, during its pre-resoma, intermissive period, with some extraphysical friendship, that is, with another extraphysical consciousness during the Intermissive Course (IC).” (VIEIRA, 2007, p. 1.678). In this same entry, the author affirms: “The para-link is the greatest tie of affinity and empathy, with para-genetic, psychosomatic, holosomatic, and multi-vehicular foundations, between intraphysical consciousnesses, male or female. (VIEIRA, 2007, p. 1.680).


I was born in southern Germany in 1968 and the Foreigner’s Syndrome was a constant throughout my life since infancy. Since my youth, I had plans of living in another country. After concluding my academic studies, I initiated an odyssey through various countries, accessed diverse lines of knowledge, but was unable to find a place or line of thought that satisfied me. Today, I know that I had been searching for my evolutionary group.

At 28 years old, I found part of the group in Curitiba (1996). For me, it was like finding home. The welcome from the people of the group, with great respect and friendship, left a lasting and profound impression. Since I moved with my evolutionary duo overseas, in 2003, and, in particular, since the beginning of activities of conscientiology in Germany, where I established residency in 2006, I felt that the PENTA work had, as an objective, to assist with extraphysical reurbanization.

The holothosene of Germany is marked by a long history of wars, and the extraphysical work may be at least as important as the intraphysical work of dissemination of Conscientiology in the country. Probably, it is the multidimensional work that molds the possibilities of the intraphysical work in terms of access to people (students of Conscientiology).


In the practice of PENTA, in the aforementioned day, due to light non-alignment of the vehicles of manifestation, I had a retrocognitive experience of being in the intermissive period, as a member of an intermissive course, together witih other intermissivists, participating of a group exercise.

The retrocognition began with an image of intermissive group extraphysical consciousnesses of the same evolutionary level which I was a part of. All were holding hands, forming a circle, and the exercise consisted of being in a profound state of concentration and reflection to produce an elevation of thought and sentiment.

The idea of a chorus came to mind, in which each component knows its role and the harmony was achieved via the elevation of the thosenes with total interaction among the components. We were in mutual resonance which I interpreted as being in connection with the cosmic fluid.

The purpose of such an exercise was to re-enforce the materthosene of the group existential program and to increase the probability of re-encountering the group, when in the intraphysical condition, and recalling the para-bond and the commitments assumed during the intermission.

There was a strong affinity and connection between the members of the group, and in a way we articulated and elevated thosenes throughout the group dynamic. Continuing with the chorus analogy, the members sang in unison, however each singer performed his or her part, integrating to the other parts or voices, composing a whole. The result did not seem like music, but rather subtle energy.

We understood that each one would make an effort to do his or her part within the assistantial maxi-mechanism, but what united us was the group existential program, planned during the intermissive course. The central theme had to do with the extraphysical reurbanization of the planet.

My lucidity increased significantly due to the elevation of the thoughts and sentiments. The thosenes were the healthiest possible, centered on maxi-fraternity and on the future work in the condition of intraphysical consciousness. The workshop was based on the maximum interconnection among the participants. The objective was to enter into resonance with other intermissive period participants and to reach a maximum harmony.

Holding the para-hand of the partner increased the rapport and mutual commitment. I think we planned mechanisms of mutual help in this life. For example, those who arrived first would evoke those who were to arrive later. There were no barriers or reservations, preferences or clans among us. We all knew we had the same value. There was no hierarchy. The relationship was horizontal. We elevated our thoughts and sentiments in unison. We were conscious that the existential program of another was as important as one’s own. The union and the collective work was the predominant thosene.

It may have been the experience that left me the most distant of individualism and egoism. There was no space for personalisms or worries about self-image. We abandoned individualism without losing individuality or diminishing personal value. We had profound knowledge of ourselves and each other, with total authenticity in our manifestations. This transparency increased the sense of interconnection and gave us greater personal confidence to come to this life.

I recall switched positions to hold the para-hands of everyone. With this idea, there was a strong impact on the psychosoma and the non-alignment ceased. I was touched and I recalled evoking those who had not joined the group intraphysically.

In sequence, I felt a repercussion in the cardiochakra. I understood the phrase “strength in union” in a deeper way. The greatest analogy I could find for this force is that of a great current. I felt much gratitude for being part of this group and for having the opportunity to prepare for my intraphysical life with such a high degree of lucidity, knowing where I came from, where I was going to, and what my role would be in this life and that I would have, side by side, evolutionary friends with the same objective.


My hypothesis is that with this group dynamic, we bid farewell to the intermissive course, keeping the mutual compromise for the current lifetime, through group extrapolation and great confraternization, before being dispatched, one by one, to resoma. We knew the challenge of intraphysical life, with its tortuous paths, and we knew there was no guarantee we would encounter our evolutionary group. Despite this, we had the motivation to work to the maximum, with our healthiest thosenes, still as extraphysical conciousnesses.

The greater our lucidity and the strongest our perception of this resonance, the greater the probability of infusing this experience within our consciential structure, giving it an intrinsic value that could be captured in the intraphysical state.

I believe that we entered in resonance with the cosmic flux and with the holothosene of extraphysical reurbanization. I do not know how to clearly define the resonance with the cosmic flow, but the degree of elevation of fraternal sentiments induced me to think that we were in connection with the Extraphysical Central of Fraternity. I could not differential faces or people, because the priority was the group. The individuality took second plane.

I consider this an experience a significant recovery of cons in terms of magnitude. I could say that, through it, I integrated the sense of interconnection as a value in this existence, with which I aim to align my manifestations. The following sentiments prevailed after the retrocognition ended: intimate well-being, confidence, fraternity, harmony, optimism, responsibility, serenity, and unity.


Right after the experience, I felt the responsibility to share the experience with the other intermissive period colleagues, and the invitation of the V Forum on PENTA arose as an opportune synchronicity to share the experience. Perhaps this personal account can rekindle the recall in other intermissivists

The proposal of using the term sense of interconnection seems to be the most accurate of the nature of the para-link between the members of the intermissive course, where fraternity and solidarity predominate. I think this sentiment is a common value among all.

The effects of the experience have been lasting and expand through the current moment, generating more associations of ideas, allowing me to connect things that had seemed disparate. For example, the interconnection and the force of the chorus with extraphysical reurbanization, the world state, and the European Union.

The European anthem is not only an anthem of the European Union, but of all of Europe in an ample sense. The music was extracted from Ludwig van Beethoven’s 9th symphony, composed in 1823. In the last part of the symphony, Beethoven inserted the poem “Ode an die Freude” (Ode to Joy) by Friedrich von Schiller, written in 1785. This poem expresses the idealist vision of Schiller, shared by Beethoven, in which humanity unites itself through fraternity. The “anthem expresses the ideals of liberty, peace, and solidarity and constitutes the standard of Europe.” (EUROPEAN INSTITUTIONS, 2009).

Those ideals can be synthesized in the phrase: “Alle Menschen werden Brüder” (all human beings will become brothers), part of the poem by Schiller. The sense of interconnectivity may have its roots in the first intermissive course, and through this experience I deduce that this sense will be applied or developed in two phases: First phase: development of the sense of interconnection as a value among us, intermissivists.

Second phase: extension of this sense of interconnection to the Homo sapiens reurbanizatus.

Only when we feel empathy, fraternity and responsibility for the evolution of the consreus, will universalism be impregnated into our consciential structure. “In the evolutionary trajectory, there comes a level, inevitably, when a consciousness divests itself, spontaneously, of all egoism to embrace pure altruism definitively, without restraint, without loss of identity, sacrifice or major personal difficulty.” (VIEIRA, 2003, p. 848).

Excerpt of talk on synchronicity in Gainesville at Seraphim Center

Excerpt of a transcript of a discussion at Seraphim Center, Gainesville, FL with Nelson Abreu as we near 10 years since our first activities there in 2003.


Actions, people you meet, things you see, read, things that fall on your lap out of nowhere, a thought that comes to mind, something you hear -- so unlikely, so bizarre, sometimes a string of them. Is this just coincidence?

Audience: "I lived off the Alaska Highway, 250 miles from the nearest city. Someone came through from the highway with a piece of leather with a drawing and inscription from a temple. He gave it to me. I thought it was great because I had been to Nepal. A week later a Buddhist monk came by. I wouldn't even be able to find it, had he not come within about a week, because we put away things that we value but they are hard to find. It turns out that it was his from masters' monastery, and I was a conductor for it to return to its original place."

I am sure most of you have had at least one synchronicity that made you stop in awe. Sometimes it seems as if a sign that reveals "yes, we do live in a material world," as the Police song you played some minutes ago, "but that there is more." We are not just bodies. Is there a plan, purpose? I think so!

Audience: “I was at the beach, and I felt I should be in this particular part. I made a great detailed landscape drawing. Two people came in between me and the view, but there was something about them that attracted me. After they left, I finished my drawing and went walking by the park. I saw them again and so asked them if they would like to see my drawing. They were both art teachers at a university in Jacksonville. They seemed to like it and I felt such a connection with them. We hung out all afternoon. It was all very enjoyable, how it came together.”

I went to a conference with some other friends who were also going to present. We were at the last event of the evening, the day before our presentation. So, I thought we should hand out some announcements. The moment I told my friend to hand them out as people left, I pointed to a guy who was leaving "Like this guy, who is leaving." My friend ran into him when he went to the bathroom. Turns out he had only left for a little while. When I leave, I run into him again. He and his girlfriend come the next day. He was very sharp, asked good questions, and we all felt we would like to keep in touch. We forgot to exchange contacts.

The conference was over, we packed up and got our rental car. We were so hungry on the highway, but we missed the first exit. I had a pre-sentiment that there was not going to be another exit for a while but I was unable to advise the driver to exit immediately, for some reason. Sure enough, there was no exit for a good while. After maybe half an hour, there is an exit with a Subway but it closed just before we got there. Fortunately, there was a chain restaurant that one of my friends had tried before and was not bad. We were so hungry, anyway. We had a good time and enjoyed our food. We are about to ask for the check, when I see the back of someone seating nearby. I could not see the face of the lady across him. It turns out it was the young couple from the conference. They lived two hours away from the Penn State campus. We exchanged contacts and offered them a book.

Let us say that there is something important that you want to study to help others, like teen suicide. You start running into relevant situations and information, from the magazine article at the dentist's office to the book that fell from the shelf as you walked by. You just started a business but after a while your money is running out and you run out of confidence. An idea, a quote you read once, then comes into your mind: "People who accomplish great things, must take great risks." You regain your confidence and that day you get your first order. 

The examples thus far have been all nice and "heart-warming," but what about when you decide to take a right turn and the lamp post falls on your head. How often do lamp poles fall, and why did I have to in that spot, at that time? You had an unpleasant dream before your flight that seemed to predict doom, so you decide not to go last minute. The usually-punctual flight companion missed the flight because he overslept - a very rare event. But the remaining two friends went along and died in the plane crash. Why? We cannot be too simplistic about it: "The latter deserved to die - they had karma! The former, no, they are meant for great things!" How do these things happen, and why?

Some things are generated by ourselves, and many are not really synchronicities. Let's say you pick your birthday, say 4 / 27: 427 is your number. You start noticing the time 4:27 all the time. After a while, you notice that you under-estimated your brain's biological clock, and you stop paying attention to it. At the airport, months later, you are informed that your wonderful airline overbooked the economy flight. They arrange an alternative, and you wonder if you should stay or if you should go. You think you should stay, and happen to see 427 in the running announcement screen and you take this as a pointer to go with your intuition. So, it started out as not being synchronistic, but then, because you were no longer actively pursuing it was used for a synchronicity you could identify.

Audience: “My dad still lives in the same house I grew up in. The house number is 403. When I moved to Florida, I got married and his parents' house was 4103. It was not why I married him, but that was interesting. Unfortunately, that marriage did not last very long. When I moved to Gainesville, I found an apartment complex that was reasonable. The address there was 4203, where I lived for 10 years.”

Yes, I notice numbers can come up in different contexts. Some of it is self-generated, even biologically, but not always.

What else can trigger synchronicities? We can think of past lives. Of many previous experiences, you would have met many people, have had close relationships with many people, but many, many people. You would have been friends and family. So should it be surprised that we develop a proneness to meet certain people with whom we develop an instant connection; or even the opposite, an instant repulsion or dislike. But why? Many times there is nothing horribly wrong with them. So, as we explore this it comes part of our self-discovery and self-development progress. Sometimes, synchronicities relate to what we "tune in to." We might run into events related to what we have been thinking about or feeling or our degree of ethics.

Imagine ten people in the zoo, when the lion escapes. Eight manage to escape, and two twins trail behind, looking equally appetizing. It turns out that the one who got attacked was an illegal hunter and mistreated animals since he was a child. The other was an environmentalist and donated a lot of time and energy to protect animal life. So, was that just a coincidence? The lion being instinctive felt more threatened by the hunter. What we do, think, and feel is going to determine to some extent who we run into. Something someone tells me could help me solve a problem I'm currently dealing with. Apparently complete opposites, cops and criminals are so closely associated. The thief that goes clean, moves to another town, but keeps getting mugged. "Wait! I'm the good guy now, what's going on?"

We're not going to go into details now into concepts of karma, but it's not just an individual process. Why are we born into specific families for example? Why do we have the parents we have? What we have done in the past is done, but we can choose better postures and decisions today. There may be a tendency in humans today to divine this process? Are you sure it was an "angel?" How do you know? Was it from a positive source, a mal-intentioned source, a not so wise a source? We have to take care with eagerness to follow an idea that might not even be our idea. We can test things out and discern. How can we sponsor synchronicity? Well, it helps to be more alert and lucid, pay attention, be observant. Reading about it helps: classics include the novel "The Celestine Prophecy" and works of Carl Jung, who came up with the term. We can read about the processes involved in synchronicity like bioenergetics, energetic attractions, and karma. On reincarnation, I recommend the book Retrocognitions by Wagner Alegretti and Life Before Life by Tucker.

Another issue is merit; nothing is for free. If you want to experience a certain thing or spiritual assistance, considering there are limited resources, it's economics, who is going to have it? When we are watching TV, do we need help? Not usually! If we are counseling someone, we might merit more assistance. The more you invest in helping, the more you merit assistance through synchronicity, the out-of-body experience and increased parapsychism like telepathy or your ability to perceive and interpret energies. Why? Because you are putting it to good use. You will often run into the right people, being in the right place at the right time.

You can become a key player for something, whether at the local or the international level, we don't really know who we are. Maybe someone in this room is supposed to write a book that would help thousands of people throughout the world; we should not underestimate that.

Energetic or Psychological Contamination

- Adapted by Nelson Abreu from a piece by Nanci Trivellato

Among poorly understood topics in medicine and behavioral studies is so-called psychological contamination, that is, the transmission of attitudes through mental influence or the imitation reflex. Although this process is well-known among psychiatrists, psychologists, and sociologists, many of these professionals do not consider its bioenergetic aspect.

You may have observed how, if a person yawns, sneezes, laughs, or cries others in the room may follow suit. This effect is more powerful in large crowds, like a live sporting or entertainment event, where individuals may feel an unusual level of emotion and hundreds to thousands simultaneously laugh, cry, or feel connected to the same artist or athlete.  Another example can be found in charged political events where a small fight can propagate into a chaotic situation resulting in vandalism and even lynching involving many people who are otherwise peaceful by themselves. 

Herding and groupthink, or the restrictive influence of a group’s culture on an individual’s intellectuality, has become part of our lexicon. Emotional or affective rapport can also play a part in psychological or energetic contamination. A typical case of affective rapport is evidenced by the mother who can feel that her daughter is not feeling well at school and is invoking her help. A more objective example can be found in the work of the Princeton Engineering Anomalies Research lab, which found that couples perform better in remote perception and human-machine anomalous interaction studies.

Do you find that you act with less authenticity or exhibit certain behaviors when around different groups? The critic Noam Chomski coined the expression “intellectual self-defense” referring to thinking freely and critically without being gullible or lazy to verify the “facts” and the history behind events other than the version of the world we are told by family, the media, religion, government, etc.

These phenomena are related to auric coupling, that is, the temporary fusion of the auras (or energies) of people. This condition allows a natural, spontaneous, and instantaneous transfer of bioenergies. Even though one might not realize or perceive that the transfer occurred, that does not stop the other person’s or the group’s patterns of emotions, sensations, or ideas from affecting them.
Without a doubt, it is imperative that we understand we are constantly exchanging energies with people and places, even at a distance. This connection can intensify leading to reactions in our energetic field that can result in mental, emotional, or even physiological reactions. The more lucid we are with regards to our own energies, the better we can detect our auric couplings with other people – physical or non-physical, healthy or pathological – and we can cleanse and defend ourselves when necessary.

All too often we feed ourselves dispensible ideas that often have their roots in repressed emotions or energetic blockages, which in turn impede the flow of more evolved ideas.  However, we can train to clean our own “mental litter” and protect or isolate ourselves from environmental “consciential pollution” through awareness and intentional control of their energies.

With time, people may realize that thought is action and that when we invoke others – whether it is a sexual fantasy or replaying an argument – we establish an energetic connection with them. We can learn to identify these interactions and to decide whether or not they are healthy. Sometimes we might want to connect with someone with an ill pattern, donate energies, and then disconnect. This is different from being unwittingly or unwillingly drained such as with the typical phone call where the friend only calls to complain. Organizations like IAC specialize on training individuals to become more aware of other dimensions of everyday life and to control their other bodies: the energosoma or holochakra (body of energies), the psychosoma (body of emotions, astral body), and the mentalsoma (body of discernment, ethics, and serene sentiment).

Lucidity: The other Deficit in the Elections

by Nelson Abreu

As we approach the end of the presidential campaign in the U.S., voters appear largely polarized, often holding strong opinions on which leader and set of policies are best. Given the complexity of many of the issues, it is a pity that the media coverage has been dominated by short assertion sound bites, rather than in-depth dialogue and analysis amonh more exempt experts that break down the issues and choices.

A recent study ( ) confirms that once individuals are required to explain the details of their policy positions, the illusion of depth of understanding tends to vanish, often leading to a partial or complete change of opinion. It turns out most of us think we are policy wonks, until we are truly put to the test.

Another study ( ) has revealed that we tend to answer polls, decisively agreeing or disagreeing, even on non-existing legislation, for example. I.e., few simply admitted ignorance. Answers could also be biased by stating whether someone of their party affiliation agreed or disagreed with the fictious legislation. This finding puts into question any polling that is not preceded by in-depth research and dialogue.

As we approach election day, we are reminded that democracy is a work in progress and hope it can become more influenced by reason than passions and special interests.
