An Australia-based writer and engineer has released a book which documents the true story of his experiences living on a plot of land near Melbourne once occupied by Aboriginal people. In “Portal to the Dreamtime,” author John Koch tells of his time spent experiencing the spiritual energies of the 223-acre property’s numerous ceremonial sites, artifacts and other markers of the thriving community that once dwelled there.

Written in honor of and dedicated to the Australian Aboriginal people, Koch’s book describes how he used his own clairsentient abilities as well as a friend’s channeled conversations with Dreamtime spirit Wharumbidgi to learn about and work with the Dreamtime Portal, which mediated anger and despair among Aboriginal communities and allowed for reconciliation between different races and ethnicities. According to Koch, the Portal was created by the Spiritual Hierarchy as an etheric gateway to release disempowered aboriginal spirits from the fourth-dimension lower astral plane to a higher dimension.

Through first-person accounts, colorful photographs and detailed descriptions of metaphysical phenomena, “Portal to the Dreamtime” delves into the deeply spiritual lives of early Aboriginal Australians, who lived harmoniously for over 60,000 years, making them one of the most successful cultures in known history.

“There is a great deal we can learn from the cultural and spiritual customs, beliefs and values of the Australian indigenous peoples prior to settlement by European nations,” Koch said. “We need to understand that we create our realities from our beliefs, both conscious and subconscious. In the belief that we are only physical bodies living in a purely physical universe, we have lost our greater connectedness with everything else that exists. This is evident from contemporary beliefs and practices that are clearly unsustainable, as they have created huge social and environmental problems.”
