In her biography, Bridge To Heaven, Ruth Norman recalls many psychic experiences in which she became aware of the continuity of life after death, flashbacks to past lifetimes, and visions of life on higher worlds. One of her most vivid experiences took place during the period shortly after her husband returned to the worlds of spirit. She was looking through the window of her home when two unusual, brilliantly colored birds alighted on the fence during a pounding rainstorm. As she thought to herself how strange it was to see birds flying in the rain, especially ones with such brilliant plumage so unusual for Escondido, California, a great, golden-white pulsating flame appeared at her side. It was ten to fifteen feet in height! She strongly felt the presence of her recently departed husband, Ernest, and immediately was inspired to write several pages in verse form of the thoughts she received from him in spirit!
Ruth Norman's great drive lay in her visionary awareness of the reality of life as a progressive development to higher states of intelligence. This knowledge was a part of her because of her own spiritual development as a hierarchical member of the Unarius Brotherhood. Although, like Ernest Norman, her humbleness was such that she took no credit and simply stated that she was merely the secretary to Infinite Intelligence, one cog in the great wheel of the Infinite Cosmos, the higher self of Ruth Norman (Uriel) is of a vast development, a Universal Radiant Infinite Eternal Light. She has long worked for the benefit of humankind, by the side of Raphiel and others of the Unarius Brotherhood, throughout many, many lifetimes of great significance in the history of Earth and other worlds. Her previous lifetimes, as Socrates, Peter the Great, Charlemagne, Queen Elizabeth I, and Queen Maria Theresa have shaped the future for many countries—all a part of a one-million year progressive plan for the healing of humankind on Earth, which was set in motion by the Spiritual Hierarchy of the Unarius Brotherhood. Her inspirational example continued through her lives as Hatshepsut, Akbar of India, Quetzalcoatl, Atahualpa—the last Inca of Peru—and many others. These lives have been relived and recognized through the course of her recent incarnation as Ruth E. Norman, for the purpose of man's enlightenment concerning the true identity of the many advanced spiritual teachers and leaders who have kived on Earth throughout its history and prehistory in Lemuria and Atlatnis.
Perhaps most significant is the true story of Uriel's incarnation as Mary of Bethany, the betrothed and thirteenth disciple of Jesus of Nazareth—a prior incarnation of Dr. Ernest L. Norman. This story is related in Uriel's short autobiography, My 2000-Year Psychic Memory as Mary of Bethany.
It is now and always has been the desire and purpose of Uriel to overcome the inertia of individuals and humankind as a whole by presenting knowledge of the Interplanetary Confederation, thirty-two worlds joined in harmony and brotherhood. The future landing of emissaries from each of these worlds will occur when the peoples of planet Earth have opened their hearts and minds to be receptive to the arriveal of these advanced, intelligent beings—the Space Brothers! Their mission is one of peace and friendship; their intention is to invite planet Earth to become the thirty-third member of the restored brotherhood of terrestrial planets within the Milky Way Galaxy!
Ruth Norman made her transition to the spiritual worlds in 1993, having successfully completed her mission on Earth, and as one of the quadrocentric polarity known as The Hierarchy, consisting of Uriel, Raphiel, Muriel, and Michiel, continues to inspire the progressive evolution of humanity from the celestial dimensions, along with millions of advanced beings known collectively as the Unariun Brotherhood. Today, the Unarius Educational Foundation operates under the overshadowing influence of the Hierarchy and the Unariun Brotherhood to continue its mission to disseminate the teachings of a new science of life that will help develop humanity's inner and higher spiritual consciousness.
