Hi all Jane Roberts Seth readers, and seth_and-personal-reality group members,

I hope that you are having a nice 2013...
My name is Laurel Davies-Butts and it has been ages since I have written in...I am just sending in a notice to you today...
I am hoping to attend graduate school in 2013, (hoping to earn my Masters degree finally so that I can work all my life- (as Robert Fabian Butts did!) )and I will be planning on moving to another area from the Elmira area I have lived with Rob, Jane and Seth since 1985. Because of this I have decided to have an estate sale, and what better place for an estate sale than on-line?

If you are a reader of the Jane, Rob and Seth books, and are interested in books, paintings and household items from the Jane Roberts and Robert Butts estate, I hope that you will stop by our estate sale at my new website at

I will be having our estate sale at beginning in January, hopefully beginning this next week (January 8th or so). If you have friends who are Seth readers, or you read or write at other groups I hope that you will mention this there. I am not going to advertise the sale anywhere other than in the Seth readership at this time.

I will be having sales of books (Seth books, and books from our collection of books that Rob and Jane (and I) read over the many years (many of which are mentioned in the Seth and Jane books) from our library (with numbered bookplates which have not yet arrived). We have a many, many books (I have several rooms full of books of all kinds-I am not planning on selling them all, but you never know, I suppose. ) We have editions of the Seth books in many different languages as well. I have always thought that it would be fun to have them all together in a ceiling-tall bookshelf- but I have to downsize, and that does not seem to be a possibility for me after all.

I will also be selling some of Rob's original paintings and drawings, and some of Jane's works as well. Yale University does not want to collect art in their archival collections, I was so sad to learn. Rob's art is fantastic. His paintings and drawings are terrific, and his own psychic abilities with his works on people that he did not know have shown up with people that I had in my life in Iowa City long before I had ever heard of the Seth material. For example Rob painted one of my best friends in high school and her family. He painted our paperboy's portrait! He painted many different people without knowing them-maybe he painted someone from your life, and his inner self knew that you would purchase the portrait some day! Such magical events are everywhere alive in the action of the Rob, Jane and Seth story, and I am honored and pleased to be telling you part of their story.

I am at a point where I need to downsize, like so many others in our country and the world, therefore, as almost everyone finds at some point in their lives-an estate sale has become necessary. I have reached that place in time.

In my opinion it will be very pleasant to sell some things to readers of the books-rather than just to people in the Elmira community- few of whom seem to read the works at all! I discovered this much to my surprise when I moved to Elmira at Rob's request from California in 1985. I couldn't believe that the people of this area were not all Seth readers, but that seemed to be the case then, and it still seems to be the case today.

I prefer the idea of the people who like reading the books, and thinking about what the Seth material means- readers having some things that were Jane and Rob's in their bookshelves.

And readers who have read about Rob and Jane's paintings might like one or more for their own collections. Rob did sellsome of his art to some E.S.P. class members and to friends.

As usual, Seth is ahead of me (and us) in planning for this I am sure...I say this with the humor that it deserves- as Seth is often happening along with information that I read years after he said it that I realize applies to what is happening in my day- he was already there with things that are going on...and what a fantastic example of the proof that he said would be made clear later on-

Seth has been aware of this new development in his 5th dimensional location in time all at once, and has been waiting for me to get to this time period- and it has been with some effort that I have finally gotten here! Action in physical reality is like that, isn't it!

Some of the estate sale items include possibly some furniture; which might be fun for some others to purchase if they are interested, (furniture is terribly expensive to send-for example I was pricing one of Jane and Rob's writing tables, which I estimate weighs about 80 pounds, and it costs about $800.00 to send it to Arizona (as an example) )by Fed Ex freight. So if you are interested in furniture please check the prices of receiving it (at your door, with a phone call to you first from Fed Ex freight, for example.) as you are considering. I am planning in taking payments by Paypal. Paypal is easy to work with in all ways; easy to pay and accept payment, easy to refund money through or make comments if necessary. And a record is kept that is easily kept up.

Many of the things I am selling will be kept with a provenance of the sale. I want to keep a list of where all of the art, and books, and furniture goes, and be able to write to you about the item later. If a movie is done about Jane and Rob and Seth at some time, someone else may want to contact the purchasing person also, to assemble a movie set. And best of all, if a museum is ever put together, some of the items might fit in there as well. The future has so many great unknowns, and such excellent possibilities.

If you are a Seth reader and are interested in having authentic items from the authors in your collection, I hope that you will look at our estate sale on-line. I hope that you will write to me at that .com, in case I am not checking in here. A great technical person who works for some of the other on-line Seth sites will forward on information to me until I have an e-mail address published here.

I hope that you are having a great 2013.

Best Wishes,

Laurel Davies-Butts
