Yes, we have been talking about what to do not to reincarnate here for quite a while, I think that this discussion will continue for a long time. And I would not be surprised that some FS members have been having this discussion in some past lives too...
As far as my position regarding the idea of earth being a prison planet, what I can say is that it has been evolving and changing as I learn more about this topic. But I have been fairly consistent with things that I have a strong "gut feeling" about even if there is no evidence to prove that they are correct.
For instance, I know that no one can trap an "aware/self-realized" IS-BE. How do you trap an all-powerful, all-knowing Immortal Spiritual Being? So imho, the most important thing required to escape the prison planet is to understand what an IS-BEs is, and how to become an "aware/self-realized" one.
I am going to simplify and shorten this discussion by saying that because we don't know much about IS-BEs, we also don't know or accept that IS-BEs create physical reality. But the controllers know the truth, and they understand the mechanics of creation. So, they provide earth humans with the unfortunate conditions that we need to manifest and turn earth into an eternal prison planet.
That is why some people are saying that the prison planet did not (or does not) exist in the first place. But we have created it thru our lack of awareness of who we really are, and we continue to sustain it today. What the controllers did and continue to do today is to provide man with the undesirable conditions that he needs to create and run the prison planet forever.
That is the position that I have at this point about earth being a prison planet.
I have to confess that I don't know much about what Cayce said about the connection between Melchizedek and Jesus. But it is possible that these 2 beings were connected because Cayce readings were very accurate, at least the medical ones. But I think that the Melchizedek that Edgar Cayce is talking about is probably not the one that I trained with.
The 8-steps method that I have posted here is not mine but I think that it has most of the elements required to avoid reincarnating on earth. I say "I think" because we can never be 100% sure of anything.
As far as the the electric grid of the prison not appearing after death, it all depends on the belief system that the person has at the time of death. Whatever the person believes in is manifested right away. So, if a person believes that the electric grid is going to appear or not appear at death, then that is the experience that this person will have.
Conversely, it means that you can command not to have step 7 at all, and it will not be there. I have read about people discussing how to escape reincarnation by finding a hole in the grid and escaping thru it. Well, that could be very difficult specially if the death experience was difficult. The easy way would be to comand the grid to disappear, and it would.
How? Well, you are an IS-BE, a master creator, and you use the nothingness of thought to create reality. Outside of 3D reality you are in your real and true state of being, and whatever you think about is manifested right away. So, you think about something and boom! It manifests right there if you want.
