Some Advanced Teachings Of Dolores Cannon

I tried my very best to give people a careful introduction to Dolores Cannon in my previous two blog post articles, in hopes that her teachings would make sense and take root.

In reviewing what I covered so far, and considering what I am still trying to figure out myself, I stepped back a little to make some observations. I estimate that only 1 out of 100 adults in the United States know who Dolores Cannon is. This means that 10 out of 1,000 adults know who she is. Of these 10 people, how many believe what she teaches? Maybe 1. That’s 1 out of 1,000 people believing in what Dolores Cannon teaches.

In the state of North Dakota, where I live, there are fewer than 800,000 people in the entire state. Which means that there are probably only about 800 people in North Dakota who believe in what Dolores Cannon teaches.

From the comments to Dolores Cannon’s videos on her YouTube channel “The Metaphysical Hour”, and the people who attempt to discuss Dolores Cannon’s teachings elsewhere, it appears to me that 60% of her followers are women over 30 years of age who have experienced trauma in their lives, and have gone to great lengths to try to find some kind of alternate explanation for life, the World, the Universe, existence.

Unfortunately, sadly, most of these over-30 women with past trauma in their lives, are bitter, jaded, wounded, battered, inwardly-hateful, inwardly-angry people with very little patience, and a dislike for most people. These women may understand and believe Dolores Cannon’s teachings, but they are almost the exact opposite of Dolores Cannon, who was a gentle, cordial, caring, patient teacher.

So, considering that there are probably only 800 people in the entire state of North Dakota who believe in Dolores Cannon’s teachings, and about 60% of these believers tend to be hateful women, who is it that I think I am talking to? I don’t know. But it’s slightly amusing to me that I have found out the answers to just about everything, and no one else seems to care or have an interest.

From what I have read, and heard Dolores Cannon say, I believe that she personally hypnotically regressed at least several thousand people. I believe that she asked at least several hundred of these people to describe in as much detail as possible, their “Time-Between-Lives”. This Time-Between-Lives takes place in a different dimension, plane, or realm where Souls recuperate and undergo “Past-Life-Reviews” and “Future-Life-Planning” with their “Spirit-Guides”.

The people explaining their Time-Between-Lives and Future-Life-Planning, say that they are given the opportunity to incarnate at any time in the past or future on Earth according to what lessons they still need to learn and experiences they have not had yet. The implications of this, that a Soul could incarnate on Earth prior to the U.S. Revolutionary War, U.S. Civil War, World War I, World War II, is it possible that they might in fact alter events enough to change history? Yes, this is possible, especially because there are tens of thousands of Souls going back to various times in history on Earth, altering events, changing history.

As I wrote briefly in my previous blog post article, when a person on Earth makes a life-changing decision that they put a great deal of thought into, whether to get married, go to college, or join the military, one of themselves gets married and one doesn’t, one of themselves goes to college and one doesn’t, one of themselves joins the military and one doesn’t. One person could end up causing dozens of new “Time-Lines” on Earth.

(My understanding of this, is that an individual on Earth splits into two different Time-Lines when important decisions are made, because it allows the Soul to experience both choices.)

So to be clear, when Souls go through their Future-Life-Planning session, they can choose to go back to any point in history on Earth, which could, and probably will create a whole new Time-Line because of the impact of their actions on history. Since there are tens of thousands of Souls continuously incarnating at various points in history, there are tens of thousands of new Time-Lines being created. And, even a person already living on Earth, when they make a life-changing decision, they can split off into two new Time-Lines as well.

After the reader has spent some time thinking about the possibility of all these new Time-Lines, the reader might ask the question, who fills all of these positions of all these new people on Earth every time someone makes a life-changing decision and creates a new Time-Line? The answer is, many people on Earth are what Dolores Cannon called “back-drop-people”, they aren’t real.

When I first heard Dolores Cannon speak about the “back-drop-people” and the “back-fill-people”, I didn’t like this concept. I thought that this was a very dangerous thing to teach people. What a horrible thing, to give people the idea that other people aren’t real, don’t count, don’t matter. This is just going to give some people more justification to mistreat others.

If the reader thinks even further about Souls going back to various points in history and creating new Time-Lines and individuals already living on Earth making decisions and creating new Time-Lines, does the entire Earth get created all over again each time? No, the entire Earth does not get created all over again every time a Soul or a person’s decision creates a new Time-Line.

If I decide to get married, and one of me remains single in one Time-Line, and one of me is married in another Time-Line, do the continents of South America, Africa, Asia, Australia, Antarctica get created all over again too just because I created a new Time-Line with my decision? No, it would not be necessary to create the whole entire World and all of the people in it all over again.

When Dolores Cannon taught about this, she explained that in our own particular Time-Line, just enough of our surroundings are created, and just enough back-drop-people are created to populate our surroundings. She elaborated that buildings such as libraries, museums, schools, hospitals, stadiums, and other places are not even created in our particular Time-Line until we make the decision to go there.

So is this life a simulation? Yes, this is one way to explain this life, although it is real to us. Regarding the back-drop-people or back-fill-people that appear in the background when we go to a sporting event at a stadium or a busy airport, there is no reason for all of these people to be real or have a Soul, just because we go somewhere in our life simulation, if their role is just temporary. However, once we begin to interact more significantly with someone new that we meet in our lifetime, they are very likely going to be a real person with a Soul.

Regardless of what Dolores Cannon teaches, there is some evidence that life may be a simulation. From what I gather, roughly 1 in 5,000 people experience a “glitch in the matrix”. These stories have existed and been written about for at least the past several hundred years. Here are a few common examples:

A husband and wife are travelling away from home on an interstate or highway.  Mid-way through their drive, they stop to get fuel and eat at a restaurant.  Though sometimes the restaurant and people may seem unusual in their accent, manner of speaking, clothing that they wear, the only thing that may be memorable was that the prices were low or that the food was good.  On their return trip home, the husband and wife try to stop again at this same restaurant, but it is no longer there, and the gas station is no longer there.  They drive around the area searching, but when they find someone to ask where it is, it is explained to them that this restaurant and gas station have been closed for the past twenty years.

Though the above story may be familiar as a common “ghost story”, the reason why it is so common, is because this actually happens to roughly 1 in 5,000 people.  This has even happened and been documented by high-ranking military pilots who have landed at operating airports that have been closed for twenty years, or flying over battles that happened over a thousand years ago.

Other common “glitch in the matrix” stories are husbands & wives having a particular kind of fruit tree in their front yard for several years, then one day it’s not there.  They can both remember making pies from its fruit, and can find photographs of the tree in their front yard, but it’s gone now.  Another one, many people can remember former U.S. President Jimmy Carter dying in the 1990s, but have been very surprised when they heard later in the the 2000s or 2010s that he was not dead.  Many similar events that thousands of people remember seeing, but now appear very different.

Although the visiting of shops and restaurants that haven’t existed for many years is a more common story, or clearly remembering something happening but it isn’t that way anymore, or finding oneself witnessing long-ago places or events, other people have reported going outside of their home and everyone and everything is frozen in place, where time appears to have stopped.  These stories have been passed around as folklore, but if taken as real they offer some evidence of life being more like a simulation and different Time-Lines existing.  A Time-Line where a restaurant did not go out of business twenty years ago, a Time-Line where an airport did not close down twenty years ago, a Time-Line where Jimmy Carter died in the 1990s, or an error occurring in this Time-Line simulation.

Preface To Writing About Dolores Cannon

I first came to western North Dakota in 2011 because of its Oil Boom. Back then a person could arrive here and find employment within an hour, at a pay rate that was higher than anywhere else in the U.S., with 10-40 additional hours of overtime each week. But working conditions and living conditions were hard. Housing in North Dakota became more expensive and scarce than San Francisco or New York City. The weather was extremely cold, there was little to do for recreation or entertainment, the people were unfriendly, there was a shortage of women, and the women here were unattractive.

I never planned on staying in North Dakota. I just wanted to keep my home in a different state, pay off all of my bills, save up a surplus of money, and return to my home. As each year came and went, I had not saved up enough money to return home, and employment back home continued to pay half of what I was making in North Dakota. I was stuck, creeping ahead slowly maybe, just for the fact that I was continuing to pay all of my bills.

For me, North Dakota was very much like being in prison. There was very little to do in western North Dakota to begin with, there isn’t much here. Western North Dakota is very sparsely populated, the entire state has less than 800,000 people. The few things that a worker from out-of-state can do here, go to a grocery store, convenience store, a bar, restaurant, gym, the local people are unfriendly, and the out-of-state workers are usually very rough in every way, uneducated, drug-users, extensive criminal background. Like I said, for me, North Dakota was like being in prison.

I have written articles previously, where I went so far as to show the criminal-record print-outs for several of my former North Dakota work supervisors, which included assaults, robberies, drug possession, kidnapping, and first-degree murder. I came up with a saying, “In North Dakota, employers would rather a person did four years in prison versus four years in college.” There is an expression, “People like people, who are like themselves.” North Dakotans are more comfortable with rough, uneducated, primitive acting people, who function at a rudimentary level.

As a result of the roughness, alcohol-use, drug-use, and criminal history of the Oil Boom transients that came to North Dakota, the Police here became hyper-aggressive in stopping people for questioning. Prior to coming to North Dakota, where I had previously lived in six other states from my teens into my forties, I averaged about one stop by the Police every four years. Living in North Dakota, I experienced getting stopped by the Police five times EACH YEAR, because of their “fishing expeditions” to try to find a reason to arrest me like they did for all of the other criminals. So again, living in North Dakota was like being in prison for me.

With very little to do for recreation to begin with, the prospect of unattractive & unfriendly women, rough uneducated criminal workers from out-of-state, hyper-aggressive Police, after a couple of years living in North Dakota, I decided to stay home mostly, in my prison cell. For something to do, I began this WordPress Blog of mine, writing about my thoughts, observations, and experiences in North Dakota. Eventually I also began writing about many other things.

This WordPress Blog helped me to formulate, organize, elaborate, and understand my own thoughts, observations, and experiences better, because I was trying to explain them clearly enough so that they made sense to other people. This process often caused me to realize and understand more than I would have, if I hadn’t been trying to write about it. This writing was therapeutic and useful to me in clarifying my own thoughts, examining things more thoroughly, and being able to see deeper into subjects than I otherwise would have.

Living in North Dakota, where there is very little to do, having to stay home in my prison cell, I began to have more time to do nothing but THINK, than I had ever had before. In a way, I began to withdraw from the World, not because I intended to, but because there was no where to go, nothing to do, very few people to talk to, and very few people worth talking to. This period of my life in my late forties, 2015-2022, became a period of involuntary Introspection.

I HATE this quotation from President Theodore Roosevelt, who lived not far from me in western North Dakota back in the 1890s, “If it weren’t for my time in North Dakota, I never would have been President.”

North Dakotans love this quote, as if North Dakota inspires greatness.  To the contrary, I understand EXACTLY what Theodore Roosevelt meant: This place is so bleak & barren with nothing to do, you’ve got nothing but Introspection whether you wanted it or not, like being alone in a prison cell for years on end.

Thinking, thinking, thinking, nothing but thinking for the past 7-8 years, one of the things that I began to dwell on was the inescapable reality that Christianity was not adequately explaining life and existence.  All of the major World religions, Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Mormonism, Hinduism, Buddhism, they are each contradictory to each other, so they can’t possibly all be correct.

Further, taking Christianity for example, Christianity is even contradictory within itself.  In the Book Of Genesis, there are two completely different creation stories, one where God created male & female together at the same time, and then a different creation story where Adam was created first and then later Eve was created.  Instances in the Bible where people are dead in the ground waiting for the Resurrection, and instances in the Bible where people have already gone to Heaven or Hell after their death.

What am I supposed to believe regarding the Bible?  Is it infallible?  Is it a true recollection of historical events?  If the Book Of Revelation is so important, why is it written so confusingly that ordinary people can’t decipher it, and even Biblical scholars can’t come to a consensus on what it means?  Why was the Bible written in such a way that makes it difficult for even educated people to understand?

Regarding belief and faith in the Bible and Christianity, being alive and witnessing terrible tragedies happening to good people, while prosperity is enjoyed by wicked people, how can a person reconcile this unfairness in life?  It makes a person question their belief that there is a God that watches over everything as described in the Bible.

Creating more doubt in Christianity, are some of its best-known Christian Ministers such as Joel Osteen in Houston and Kenneth Copeland in Fort Worth who live in palatial mansions, own expensive cars and planes, and have a personal net-worth of $50M and $200M.  The most important teachings of Christianity are the lessons from the life of Jesus, who showed by example how apostles should not seek wealth or comfort, and continuously seek to help the poor and those in need.  But these famous Ministers of Christianity now are doing the exact opposite of what Jesus taught, seeking money and luxury, hoarding their wealth instead of spending it on the poor and needy.

There is so much to think about and ponder, considering the divide between what we are taught versus what we observe happening in life.  There is so much that is wrong in the World, so much suffering, so many tragedies, corruption, it causes a person to question whether there really is an omnipotent God that is watching over everything.  What is the purpose of God allowing bad things to happen to good people?  If the Bible was meant to serve as an instruction manual for people to live by, why is it so confusing, indirect, meandering, instead of straightforward and easy to understand?

Throughout history, what often appears to be happening in the World, is leaders try to convince people what the rules are, get everyone to agree to follow these rules, then the leaders proceed to manipulate, control, take advantage of, fleece, and enslave the people through their observance and obedience to these rules.  Has the adaptation of Christianity by Western Civilization occurred because emperors, kings & queens, presidents, and prime ministers found it to be useful in controlling people?

How does religion begin in any culture?  Did primitive hunters & gatherers discuss among themselves the meaning of life, death, lightning, floods, drought, and eventually the most popular explanations became their religion or mythology?  In many cultures this appears to be the case.

When written language was created, the religion and mythology of the ancient Egyptians, Greeks, Romans, and Jews became more intricate, detailed, and complex.  I wonder for each of these religions, how much doctrine was received through the prophets of God, and how much was created out of thin-air by men who had an agenda of control and manipulation?

I tried to find a beginning point to start from.  We don’t really know who created us, why they created us, what are we supposed to be doing, what is going to happen to us, is there life after death.  It could have been a Creator who created us, maybe a group of Creators, maybe even a whole race of Creators.  But were we created for entertainment, as a scientific experiment, as livestock, or for some other reason, we just don’t know. 

It would have been helpful if there had been a clear, thorough, written explanation left for us on a rock wall, metal plates, stone tablets, clay tablets, or papyrus for us to know who created us, why, what are we supposed to be doing, and what is going to happen to us.  Perhaps there was, but it was accidently or intentionally destroyed, or hidden from us.

In 2018, I was watching YouTube videos on the internet, when I began seeing a few Dolores Cannon videos being recommended to me.  Dolores was a plump, older woman in her 70s, so I wasn’t very interested in her based on her appearance.  A few of her YouTube videos had titles relating to Reincarnation, so I eventually watched one of them.  Thank God Dolores was such a calming and pleasant person to listen to, so that I was willing to watch one of her speaking engagements in its entirety.

I wasn’t shocked by Dolores Cannon’s material when I first began listening to her, but I was thinking that it was too good to be true.  What she was saying explained a lot.  I was also very fortunate that the first several YouTube videos of Dolores Cannon that I watched were two-hour lectures where she started from the beginning of her work and proceeded to describe each of her discoveries as they happened, otherwise her material would have been too confusing for me.

Here is just a brief explanation for now.  In the late 1960s Dolores Cannon and her husband were experimenting with hypnosis because it was gaining popularity at that time as a way to help people reduce stress & anxiety, and to help people lose weight and quit smoking.  A medical doctor asked Dolores and her husband if they could help a young housewife who was struggling with anxiety and being overweight.  When Dolores and her husband hypnotized this young housewife, she began talking about what appeared to be other lifetimes that she had had.

Dolores Cannon and her husband had never experienced or heard about anything like this.  They continued to hypnotize this young housewife in the following weeks, tape recording each of these sessions, where she recalled the details of five different lifetimes that she had previously lived.  Dolores did as much research as she could, to determine the accuracy and validity of what this young woman was saying under hypnosis.

Unfortunately, Dolores’s husband was involved in a near-fatal car accident, required constant medical care for at least one year, then years of rehabilitation, so Dolores’ hypnosis research was put on hold for about eight years.

Speeding up this story for now, when Dolores was in her late forties, she was able to spend the next forty years conducting past-life regression research.  Not only was she able to record thousands of individuals’ past-life recollections under hypnosis, but she was able to get these people to describe their experiences during their time BETWEEN LIVES.  These times BETWEEN LIVES, provided a great deal of information about a Creator, Spirit Guides, Life-Review, future Life-Planning, the Purpose of Life, Souls, and many other things.

At times, I was beginning to doubt Dolores Cannon, such as when she talked about her book titled, “Jesus And The Essenes”, because I felt that she was going too far.  And also when she talked about her book titled something like, “Conversations With Nostradamus”.  But in time, as I listened to Dolores Cannon talk about these two books, there was a great deal of useful information, that had a likelihood of being true.

I had to write this Preface to Dolores Cannon, to establish a basis for how I came to believe that her explanations are probably the most thorough and complete explanations that we have at this time explaining our lives.  I estimate that 90% of people will have no interest whatsoever in listening to anything that I have to say about Dolores Cannon, or even listening to Dolores Cannon herself.  I believe that this is something that a person has to be ready to hear, or it won’t matter to them.

I hope to be able to begin a thorough introduction to Dolores Cannon in the near future.
