The Titanic Disaster

Written by Wes Annac, The Culture of Awareness

The sinking of the Titanic was one of the worst and most publicized disasters in our history, and needless to say, a lot of people lost their lives when it sank.

Those of us who know that death isn’t the end of life can take solace in the fact that those who ‘lost their lives’ are more alive than ever in another state of consciousness, but this doesn’t subtract from the devastating nature of this tragedy.

There are a lot of theories about why the Titanic sank, and some people think it was to prevent the implementation of a new financial system, which a few influential billionaires who were onboard the ship when it sank would’ve been responsible for implementing.

Politics is much dirtier than most people realize, and I could see the Titanic being sank over the greed of people who don’t want to see humanity prosper. I could write a lot about this subject, but it isn’t the focal point of this article.

Wouldn’t it be interesting to find out what the scene was like for the people who passed away on the ship? I don’t want to fill your heads and hearts with anguish, but I think it’d be very insightful to read the perspective of someone who transitioned into the fourth dimension as a result of the sinking of the Titanic.

As it turns out, there’s someone who can give us such a perspective. W.T. Stead, whose life was taken on the Titanic, apparently came back to speak through a medium about what the tragedy was like for the people who were affected by it the worst.

He’s said a lot about this subject, and we’re going to examine his words and gain a deeper glimpse into what happened and how the deceased handled their sudden transitions. In his first quote, Stead tells us that when he saw what was going on (after he’d already transitioned) he quickly changed from helpless to helpful.

“I was still so near the earth that I could see everything going on there.

“Where I was I could see the wrecked ship, the people, the whole scene; and that seemed to pull me into action – I could help! …and so in a few seconds – though I am now taking a long time to tell you, it was only a few seconds really – I found myself changed from the helpless state to one of action; HELPFUL not helpless – I was helpful, too, I think.” (1)

When he saw everything that was happening, Stead quickly moved into action. Whether you’re physically alive or not, you’re going to want to contribute if a disaster strikes, and it might take some souls a while to realize that they’ve actually passed on.

In the case of a tragedy like this, some people would probably be so enamored with helping that they don’t realize they’ve passed on and are considered one of the ‘victims’. I’m sure the realization eventually sets in, and it’s probably hard to come to terms with one’s death if a minute ago, they thought they were alive and helping.

Stead also tells us what it was like when he and the group of afterlife initiates he was with collected themselves and prepared to see what’d happen next.

“I pass a little now. The end came and it was all finished with. It was like waiting for a liner to sail; we waited until all were aboard. I mean we waited until the disaster was complete. The saved – saved; the dead – alive. Then in one whole we moved our scene. It was a strange method of traveling for us all, and we were a strange crew, bound for we knew not where.” (2)

That had to have been a unique but unsettling experience. You’re on a luxury cruise ship one minute, and the next, a disaster takes you out of your body and starts sending you to the other side of the veil with a group of people you’ve likely never met.

Personally, I’d be very confused and anxious, and I’d wonder what the heck just happened to me. I’d wonder about my friends and family, and I’d especially wonder about the survivors of the disaster. What happened to them? Will they be okay?

I can only imagine all of the thoughts and feelings that’d arise.

As Stead tells us, the same scared and anxious thoughts were running through the heads of the recently deceased in his group.

“The whole scene was indescribably pathetic. Many, knowing what had occurred, were in agony of doubt as to their people left behind and as to their own future state. What would it hold for them? Would they be taken to see Him? What would their sentence be?

“Others were almost mental wrecks. They knew nothing, they seemed to be uninterested in everything, their minds were paralyzed. A strange crew indeed, of human souls waiting their ratings in the new land.” (3)

I can’t blame the people who were traumatized.

How would one react in a situation where they have to face a lot of ‘firsts’ – namely, their physical death? Coping with physical death is hard enough, and combined with the pressure of worrying about loved ones and everyone back on the ship, I’m sure this whole incident turned a lot of people into nervous wrecks.

Stead tells us about the grisly scene that resulted from the tragedy. Be warned – if you’re particularly sensitive or empathic, you might not enjoy the picture Stead paints.

“A matter of a few minutes in time only, and here were hundreds of bodies floating in the water – dead – hundreds of souls carried through the air, alive; very much alive, some were. Many, realizing their death had come, were enraged at their own powerlessness to save their valuables. They fought to save what they had on earth prized so much.

“The scene on the boat at the time of striking was not pleasant, but it was as nothing to the scene among the poor souls newly thrust out of their bodies, all unwillingly. It was both heartbreaking and repellent. And thus we waited – waited until all were collected, until all were ready, and then we moved our scene to a different land.” (4)

Personally, I don’t know if I’d be worried about the material things I accrued in life if I’d just been through such an awful and heart-wrenching tragedy. I tend to think differently than people who put all of their worth and value into material things, and I’d be far more worried about other aspects of my earthly existence that seem more important.

Everyone copes with their physical death differently, and for some, mourning the loss of the material things that can’t follow them into the higher realms is the best way to cope. After the debris was cleared and things started to calm down, I think I’d be interested in exploring what the other side has to offer.

I’m sure some of the people who died on the Titanic eventually and excitedly explored the fourth dimension too, but in the beginning, fear and loss were probably the only things on their minds.

In a quote about W.T. Stead, we learn that his daughter received prophetic news from a man who somehow ‘knew’ there would be a disaster that claimed Stead’s life – a man who went on to channel Stead via automatic writing.

“When the Titanic went down, Estelle, Stead’s daughter, was on a tour with her own Shakespearean Company. One of the members of the touring group was a young man named Pardoe Woodman. According to Estelle Stead, a few days before the disaster, Woodman told her over tea that there was to be a great disaster at sea and that an elderly man very close to her would be among the victims.

“In 1917, shortly after being discharged from the army, Woodman began receiving messages from William T. Stead by means of automatic writing. Estelle Stead then started sitting with Woodman and observing. She noted that Woodman wrote with his eyes closed and that the writing was very much like her father’s.

“Moreover, the writing would stop at times and go back to dot the ‘i’s’ and cross the ‘t’s,’ a habit of her father’s which she was sure Woodman knew nothing about.” (5)

Woodman showed Stead’s writing traits when he channeled him, which is common among genuine channels. When you channel an entity, depending on the purity of the connection, you adopt their mannerisms and writing styles in a true display of the reality of the practice.

I’m sure Woodman’s display of these traits convinced Stead’s daughter that there was something real to his automatic writing, and I think it’s neat that channeling has been going on for so long.

Channeling isn’t a ‘new age’ thing that a bunch of hippies decided to start doing one day – people have been channeling for decades and even centuries. The man who channeled Stead, Pardoe Woodman, was one of many pioneers who opened the door for people like me to channel in this modern day, and I can’t thank him or the other pioneers enough!

In our final quote, we’re told that the recently deceased, which includes Stead and the people who were worried about their valuables when the Titanic sank, started radically ascending shortly after they exited their bodies.

“Stead informed his daughter that there were hundreds of souls hovering over their floating bodies after the big ship [the Titanic] went down, some of them apparently not comprehending their new state as they complained about not being able to save all of their valuables.

“After what felt like a few minutes, they all seemed to rise vertically into the air at a terrific speed. ‘I cannot tell how long our journey lasted, nor how far from the earth we were when we arrived, but it was a gloriously beautiful arrival,’ Stead recorded through Woodman’s hand.

“‘It was like walking from your own English winter gloom into the radiance of an Indian sky. There, all was brightness and beauty.’” (6)

After all of the intense pain and fear they experienced, Stead and everyone else who departed were able to glimpse the wonderful and harmonious fourth dimension. All of their troubles were over, and all of their trials were rewarded as they reached this land and prepared themselves for lives of eternal peace and enjoyment.

Of course, we never stand still in our growth and evolution, and most of the people who passed have probably since raised their vibration beyond the fourth dimension. Maybe some of them haven’t, but I don’t want to paint the fourth dimension as a place we go for eternal rest or slumber when we’re done on earth.

We can take as much time to rest and recuperate as we need, of course, but we eventually get active, using our greater perception to help others find a higher state of consciousness. We raise our own vibration with hard and dedicated work, and instead of eternally resting, we remain as active as we’ve always been.

I don’t necessarily enjoy talking about disasters like the Titanic, but I thought it’d be worth our time to learn what it was like for the people who didn’t make it out. It’s interesting that so many people were so worried about their material possessions, and it makes me wonder just how strong the materialistic link to this realm is.

However attached we are to the third dimension, we’ll have to be willing to leave it behind when our time comes to see what the next, more liberated realm has to offer, and we’ll find that this realm is much more enjoyable and fulfilling than the material things we possess in the lower vibrations.

I learned a thing or two today, and the manner in which people cope with tragic deaths has become clearer.

Everyone eventually finds the spiritual liberation that comes with leaving the third dimension behind, but there’s a lot of fear and uncertainty involved with the whole process. Most initiates are greeted by their guides and departed loved ones when they reach the fourth dimension, and this makes the transition a lot easier to cope with.

However much pain and fear they initially experienced, they can be at peace and enjoy their new lives with their fellow, departed friends and loved ones, growing to new heights that they would’ve never envisioned on earth.
