Kahuna - British Museum Deity Images showing the Higher spirit
Type of Spiritual Experience
The Secret Science Behind Miracles – Max Freedom Long
through the higher spirit a still higher form of mentation gave it exact knowledge of the past, the present and the part of the future that had been determined in advance...... Information concerning the future [is] had from the Higher self ... at the moment it is crystalised and on its way to becoming a fact in the future .
The uncrystallised future is not to be seen according to the kahuna
In the picture below...
