According to the author bio on the back cover of this intriguing book, Roar Sheppard is a master of Danjeon breathing. This skill allows him to communicate with the earth, with flora and fauna, and lately he’s also been able to communicate with celestial entities, primarily one from the Pleiades system who allows him/her/itself to be called Marlin.
The Universe Speaks is arranged in a question-and-answer format, with Sheppard interviewing various celestial beings as well as Gaia and the Collective Unconscious of Humanity. Perhaps the most significant piece of information conveyed is the imminent transformation of the earth, after which a ‘new humanity’ will emerge. This will be the result of the Earth entering into Pleiades’ Photo Belt, where it will be subjected to high energy photons which will initiate a shift into the 5th dimension.
With such massive changes heading straight for us, Sheppard asks the questions that we all want answered: What planetary and local climate changes will we experience as Earth passes through the Photon Belt? How will humans be transformed to exist in the 5th dimension? Will the movie theatres last?
Of course, this is information that comes from undocumented aliens, so one might be forgiven for viewing it skeptically. Fortunately almost all of Marlin’s intel is confirmed by more trusted sources. Sheppard includes his channeled interviews with cosmic beings who experienced humanity firsthand: Socrates (“One of the methods that can edify a soul, [sic] is through a war.”); Scott and Helen Nearing (“When people shift to community life and many communities are built, I think it’s desirable that they don’t belong to a certain nation….”); and Mother Teresa (“Just love others.”), as well as Albert Schweitzer, Mozart, and Shakespeare.
Sheppard is an American by birth but has spent much of his adult life in South Korea, where he practices and teaches meditation as part of his lifelong spiritual quest. Sheppard credits his “no-mind” state for his ability to communicate with entities from other planes of existence. Throughout The Universe Speaks, his reverence for those beings and for all life is clearly evident. While the information presented isn’t specific enough to be of much help in preparing for the future, there is a good bit of general philosophy and advice that is both sensible and well-founded: love one another, take care of the earth, believe in something greater than yourself.
Sheppard’s childlike wonder lends charm to his tale. Unlike many books written by self-proclaimed prophets and channelers, The Universe Speaks doesn’t seem to be a promotion for any other products or services available at exorbitant prices. Sheppard and his Pleiadian friend Marlin appear to be truly concerned with helping humans transition to a higher state. The cover price is a bit steep, but if you can find a copy of The Universe Speaks at a library or for a big discount, go ahead and read it. Who knows? Stranger things have proven true.
