Avenues of the Human Spirit takes us on a compelling journey through many life-changing experiences towards a greater sense of spiritual fulfillment. Genuine life changing experiences such as perceptions through time, out-of-body experiences and a profound spiritual awakening illustrate how the author reached a philosophy of benevolence and freedom that we too can draw upon in our everyday lives.

These Avenues of the Human Spirit are the ecstatic changes we can experience beyond our bodies, in deep meditation or removed from the everyday world in nature, but they are also the everyday choices we make that define our world. The author’s spiritual awareness has also grown from an understanding of the spectrum of human experience, from the harsher sides of his childhood in working class London to the joys of spiritual exploration. The result of these combined perceptions is what makes Avenues of the Human Spirit a unique and life-affirming book.
Graham Nicholls – Navigating the Out Of Body Experience: Part One

Graham returns for a 2nd show to discuss his debut book, Avenues of the Human Spirit published by O Books. Graham shares his journey growing up as young boy in London where the real threat of constant violence was never too far away. At this time he was also having many vivid precognitive out-of-body experiences. Graham is now using his own journey to recognise the different paths one can take given the experiences and influences we are subjected to.

Graham Nicholls Interview 2010 – Spiritual Lounge
An interview with Dhara Kothari of Spiritual Lounge Magazine

What does spirituality mean to you?

Spirituality for me means a process of growth towards greater awareness of our interconnectedness to all people and life, a liberating awareness or truth. It is about dissolving the beliefs that divide and limit. Like the scientific method, spirituality in my approach is about tuning our perceptions so that we can see things as they really are. This often means giving up long held assumptions and going it alone outside of the security of religious dogma or mainstream society, which can be scary for people but I believe it is the only way to experience true liberation.

You have had many life changing experiences, can you talk about some of them?

I would say that there have been four main stages in my life in which I was transformed in some way spiritually. The first took place when I was a small boy. I awoke in the middle of the night and walked into the hallway outside my bedroom. As I did I encountered a tall figure standing at the doorway to the apartment. Not surprisingly I was terrified, especially as I could not have been more than six or seven years old. The figure just stood there looking at me with an intensity that I have never experienced since. It is not an exaggeration to say that that night changed the direction of my life and opened me to the possibility of other levels of reality.

The second major shift took place when I was around twelve. I began to have fleeting out-of-body experiences (OBEs). They didn’t last more than a few moments at that point but they again focused me on the idea of another aspect to the universe. So around a year later I bought a book on OBEs from a local bookshop and began experimenting with inducing the experience intentionally. It took me six months but I then experienced a jolt shoot through my body before I found myself floating in the air looking at an almost foreign vision of myself lying below. Energy seemed to pulse in every direction and the room seemed lit from a radiant light emanating from my floating form. I remained there rotating for a minute or two before I sensed the soft texture of the bed again and opened my eyes to see the moving shadows from the traffic outside subtlety cascading across the ceiling.

There was no turning back after that, my OBEs began to take place on a regular basis and I started researching all I could on the topic. I took up various spiritual disciplines from meditation to committing to abstain from alcohol, recreational drugs and meat. To this day I have never gone back on these commitments and have never drunk alcohol, smoked or taken drugs. I have not eaten meat for nearly twenty years now and I’m now a vegan.

Essentially my OBEs opened up my world and initiated me into a spiritual understanding of life that has defined me since that time. They also led to the next shift in my awareness that took place in 1999. I had arranged to run a workshop with a few friends on some new techniques and ideas. We had booked a space under a railway bridge, as it was cheap and very spacious. I spent the first part of the meeting going through a breathing technique I had developed that I nicknamed the G-Technique as it drew upon a process used by pilots to help them deal with G-force during their training. It was a very powerful approach and within minutes of working with it I experienced the most powerful OBE in my life so far.

I found myself standing on a London street watching the people passing by with the normal energy and life you might expect of a large city. Then, as I watched, an explosion seemed to burst out onto the street leaving broken glass and people running. Emotion seemed to hit me as if it was a tangible physical force. It was like nothing else I’d ever experienced. Once it was over and I was back in my body I had a sense that this was something going to happen in the future and sure enough five days later a bombing did take place in Soho on the same street I had seen it happen in the OBE.

This precognitive aspect to my experiences was only to become more prominent as I was also to witness the Aldgate East bombing that took place in London in 2005 long before it actually happened. But in-between these two events I was to have probably the most personally powerful and transformative experience in my life.

I was away on holiday in Sardinia, an Island off the coast of Italy, when because of a series of chance events I had no money left for the trip except a few pounds to cover very basic food requirements. The result was the holiday became a kind of retreat and I spent my time practicing a form of Zazen meditation and reading. After several days of this I lay on my bed and experienced a sense of liberation. It is very hard to describe, but in a subtle moment I felt as if the universe touched a part of me and transformed me. It was like seeing my life replayed but without fear, only compassion and peace. That day put in motion the process that led me to write my first book and to found the Shahmai Network.

Tell us something about your professional work and how it has helped you spiritually?

Well I’ve always been a person who is inspired by many diverse areas, so I suppose my professional work as an artist, writer and activist allows me to share my understandings with others and also to explore in a deeper way what my life means. Art, especially contemporary art affords a level of freedom that few other areas do. I also always wanted to immerse people in an experience that they might never have in another context. Art allowed me to build and exhibit complex environments that I designed to take people on a meditational journey deep within themselves. I also try to offer guidance and healing to people through my various workshops, courses, retreats and one-on-one sessions. This is a really satisfying way of working for me as I can see directly the impact that my approaches have, which are often very transformative for the people involved.

You are the founder of Shahmai Network, can you tell us more about it?

The network was envisioned mainly as a focal point for my activism, a way of reaching others who support my vision and understanding of the world; with the ultimate goal of putting something positive and life affirming out into society. Our first undertaking in this direction was to become members of the Make Poverty History coalition back in 2004. It underlined to me the importance of working not just for personal growth, but for a fairer more equal world. Spirituality when it is divorced from compassion or a real focus on others is not fully realised in my understanding.

Since the end of the MPH campaign in 2005 I have focused on three slightly diverse areas, these being poverty, animal rights and personal rights such as relationships free from state limitations. These are all areas that I see as causing great suffering. I hope to expand the network as more people become aware of what I do with the goal of making lasting change in the world.

What have you learnt about the scientific understanding of consciousness?

Well I have always been fascinated by science, especially areas like parapsychology that seek to answer some of the greatest questions in human experience. Do we survive physical death? What are the boundaries of consciousness? etc etc. So my understanding of consciousness is constantly evolving. Part of me feels that consciousness may be illusory in the sense that it may not really be a consistent whole in the way we experience it. This is because the brain fills in the gaps left open by our senses giving rise to the ‘stream of consciousness’ we experience. This is interesting to me as if it is true that the brain completes the process of sensory perception, what would it look like if the mind was extended beyond the brain or if we could project our awareness to another place such as in remote viewing or an OBE? It seems to me that what we experience in psychical perceptions would appear fragmentary without the filling in process of the brain, we would also expect that we might not have the references of full memory or emotional context. As far as I can tell so far in my understanding psi perceptions do seem to match very well with this hypothesis.

In order to explore these areas more I have worked with Rupert Sheldrake, a biologist and psi researcher, in a series of telepathy experiments and I also support his work challenging the limited perspectives of many sceptics. Sheldrake believes that the brain might be more like a receiver and that our mind might be extended via a morphic field. This idea of the brain being more like a receiver is also popular with scientists researching near-death experiences. For example NDE researchers Pim Van Lommel and Penny Sartori have both put across this kind of understanding, as has Dean Radin a prolific researcher into psi.

Tell us more about your out of body experiences?

This could fill several books as I have now had hundreds of OBEs over some 23 years (as of October 2010). But what I can say is they have allowed me to travel to locations across the world and even to look down at the planet from the upper atmosphere. I have been able to explore the nature of consciousness directly without appeal to theory or dogma. That is the real value of these states of being, they offer us access to non-physical reality and let as ask questions about our spiritual nature. When I induced my first OBE at a teenager I simply wanted to experience something incredible, something life-affirming and that is exactly what happened. I entered a world of exploration and expanded my world view in ways I could never have imagined at the time.

How has astral projection helped you and in what way?

Astral projection is the term favoured in various esoteric traditions, many of which draw their ideas from Theosophy and western occultism, as someone focused on a more scientific approach I tend to use the term out-of-body experience. My OBEs have opened me to everything I now value in my life really. It is no exaggeration to say beginning to explore my OBEs made me look at the world with new eyes and begin to understand that there is more to this world than I ever imagined. I began to learn and educate myself in areas that I literally didn’t know existed before this shift in consciousness. Science, religion, philosophy, poetry and literature all became areas of fascination for me as a result of the desire for knowledge that arose from being awakened to psychical and spiritual potential.

You organize retreats, what do they consist off?

Yes, I run retreats that are focused on personal growth and spirituality as well as teaching approaches to help people have out-of-body experiences for themselves. My workshops usually consist of a one or two day event in which I guide people through a step-by-step process working with their strengths as well as limitations. When the group is focused on out-of-body experiences I use a wide range of approaches including my immersive technology, which I’ve developed since the late 1990s. I realised that most of the techniques for inducing OBEs were very generic and not based on the individual involved, so I started to develop a system that takes into account the psychology and particular strengths of the person I’m teaching. I then realised that most of the traditional techniques used only visualisations, which seemed limiting when we have all the other senses and the possibility to immerse ourselves in a compete sensory experience. I also draw on a much more scientific approach than anyone else I’m aware of, this helps to identify the approaches that are most likely to work drawn from the evidence in parapsychology.
I want people to walk away from my workshops and retreats with a sense that they have made a change, a real breakthrough. That’s my job in a way as the facilitator really, to take someone who is open to explore and grow and offer a genuine and personal teaching that lets them find the resources within the core of themselves.

Tell us more about your first book Avenues of the Human Spirit that is soon going to be published?

Avenues of the Human Spirit is a poetic journey through my experiences since my early childhood. But more than that it is an exploration of how they have transformed me and led me to a spiritual world view based upon direct experience, compassion and awareness. It was a very hard book to write and took me deep into myself and challenged me in ways that I could not have imagined. It even took me into the harsher sides of growing up in a large complex city like London. But the result I believe is quite unique in spiritual literature and early readers have already commented that they believe it is destined to be a classic. For example I have received endorsements from authors including bestselling Karen Ralls, who said that it is “Searingly honest, real and spiritually inspiring” and Herbie Brennan who said it is “An important, multi-layered work” and William Bloom also called it a “wonderful, entertaining and unique book”.

How do you envisage the future and spirituality?

I envision a spirituality that is grounded in change and growth rather than adherence to the beliefs of the past. This wouldn’t just be science and spirituality coming together in the sense of science supporting what we already believe about spirituality, it would be a spirituality grounded in the methods of science. A philosophy of awareness and human transformation that is interlinked with learning and inquiry in a way that has never existed before. I envision communities of spiritual awareness growing stronger and further reaching, so that the margins of aggression, violence and ignorance are diminished and ultimately replaced with compassion and peace.

Based on the author’s real-life story of dying on a mountain, this enthralling book combines the thrills of a wilderness adventure with the awe inspiring elements of a paranormal novel.

In March of 1980, college senior Peter Panagore went ice climbing on the world-famous Lower Weeping Wall, along the Ice Fields Parkway in Alberta, Canada. His climbing partner was an experienced ice climber, but Panagore was a novice. On their descent, they became trapped on the side of the mountain. As the sun set, he was overcome by exhaustion and hypothermia. He died on the side of that mountain in 1980. In his minutes on the other side, he experienced hell, forgiveness, and unconditional love. Heaven was beautiful.

Panagore’s near death experience (NDE) changed his life and resulted in an intense spiritual journey that has continued for decades. It impelled him to pursue a master’s degree at Yale Divinity School focusing on systematic theology and Christian mysticism. His educational background coupled with 30 years of yogic and meditative practice and 20 years of professional work with the dying and grieving has given him unique insight, language, and perspective on heaven, God, death, life, love, beauty, and hope.

“I have told my story to audiences large and small for a decade now. . . . My story touches people’s hearts; every time I tell it the audience is gripped and silent. . . . This book is about hope. It is meant to give real hope to the dying, hope to the fearful, hope to the hopeless, hope to the grieving.”


Peter Baldwin Panagore earned his BA in English from the University of Massachusetts and a M.Div from Yale University. He was ordained in the United Church of Christ and served churches in suburban Connecticut and Maine. He is the writer, on-air talent, and host of a daily two-minute broadcast on two TENGA-owned NBC stations in Maine, reaching an audience of 350,000 a week. He is the fifth minister of First Radio Parish Church of America (founded in 1926).

Book Trailer — Heaven is Beautiful: How Dying Taught Me that Death is Just the Beginning

Buy the book in October 2015 at wherever books and ebooks are sold! “This is the story of how I died, why I came back, and what has happened to me since. …”

The first book by a respected journalist on Nearing Death Awareness—similar to Near-Death Experience—this “fascinating” (Kirkus Reviews) exploration brings “humor, sympathy, and keen critical intelligence to a topic that is all too often off-limits” (Ptolemy Tompkins, collaborator with Eben Alexander on Proof of Heaven).

People everywhere carry with them extraordinary, deeply comforting experiences that arrived at the moment when they most needed relief: when they lost a loved one. These experiences can include clear messages from beyond, profound and vividly beautiful visions, mysterious connections and spiritual awareness, foreknowledge of a loved one’s passing—all of which evade explanation by science and logic. Most people keep these transcendent experiences secret for fear they will be discounted by hyperrational scrutiny. Yet these very common occurrences have the power to console, comfort, and even transform our understanding of life and death.

Prompted by her family’s surprising, profound experiences around the death of her father and her sister, reporter Patricia Pearson sets out on an open-minded inquiry, a rare journalistic investigation of Nearing Death Awareness, which Anne Rice praises as “substantive, eloquent, and worthwhile.” Opening Heaven’s Door offers deeply affecting stories of messages from the dying and the dead in a fascinating work of investigative journalism, pointing to new scientific explanations that give these luminous moments the importance felt by those who experience them. Pearson also delves into out-of-body and near-death experiences, examining stories and research to make sense of these related but distinct categories.

Challenging current assumptions about what we know and what we are still unable to explain, Opening Heaven’s Door will forever alter your perceptions of the nature of life and death.

Patricia Pearson’s work has appeared in The New Yorker, The New York Times, and Business Week, among other publications. A former member of USA TODAY’s Op-Ed Board of Contributors, she gave a recent TEDx talk, “Why Ghosts are Good for You,” which points to research showing the importance of NDAs in helping people cope with grief. She is based in Toronto, Canada.

In a remarkable true story of faith and blessings, a mother tells of her sickly young daughter, how she survived a dangerous accident, her visit to Heaven and the inexplicable disappearance of the symptoms of her chronic disease.

Annabel Beam spent most of her childhood in and out of hospitals with a rare and incurable digestive disorder that prevented her from ever living a normal, healthy life. One sunny day when she was able to go outside and play with her sisters, she fell three stories headfirst inside an old, hollowed-out tree, a fall that may well have caused death or paralysis. Implausibly, she survived without a scratch. While unconscious inside the tree, with rescue workers struggling to get to her, she visited heaven. After being released from the hospital, she defied science and was inexplicably cured of her chronic ailment.

MIRACLES FROM HEAVEN will change how we look at the world around us and reinforce our belief in God and the afterlife.

Christy Wilson Beam was born and raised in Abilene, Texas where she was a teacher for several years. After marrying her high school sweetheart, she left to focus on raising the couple’s three girls. Christy and her family now reside in Burleson, Texas.

bn:Girl knocked out by 30ft fall inside a hollow tree claims she went to heaven and met Jesus

Near Fatal Fall Cures Sick Little Girl’s Symptoms

Published on Apr 14, 2015

Annabel Beam was just five years old when she was diagnosed with two incurable disorders.

Treatments for pseudo-obstruction motility disorder and antral hypomotility disorder – life-threatening digestive disorders – kept her in and out of the hospital for years.

In 2011, another tragedy struck. While Annabel was climbing a tree, a branch gave way, sending Annabelle falling 30 feet headfirst into a hollowed-out cottonwood tree.

After several hours, an emergency fire crew managed to harness Annabel to safety and she was rushed to the hospital in a helicopter.

Incredibly, not only did Annabel survive the terrible fall without injury, the symptoms of her disorders miraculously disappeared.

Annabel’s mother, Christy, tells the story of her daughter’s amazing journey to heaven and back in the new book, “Miracles From Heaven.”

Annabel, now 12-years-old, and Christy joined Elisabeth Hasselbeck on “Fox and Friends” today to share their story of healing.

Christy explained that her daughter was in constant pain for much of her childhood. At one point Annabel even said that she wanted to die and go to heaven to live with Jesus.

Annabel revealed that when she fell out of the tree and was unconscious, she actually visited heaven.

“I saw heaven and it was really bright and I saw my Mimi who had died a couple years back,” Annabel explained. “And that’s how I knew I was in heaven.”

“I believe that I was cured because … I asked Jesus if I could stay with him, and he said, ‘No, Annabel, I have plans for you on Earth that you cannot fulfill in heaven … Whenever I send you back, there will be nothing wrong with you,'” Annabel said.

Since the accident, Annabel has not been hospitalized for her digestive disorders, which has confounded doctors. Christy revealed that Annabel is now asymptomatic and is currently on zero medications.

On February 4, 1974, members of the Symbionese Liberation Army kidnapped nineteen-year-old newspaper heiress Patricia Hearst from her Berkeley, California apartment. Desperate to find her, the police called physicist Russell Targ and Pat Price, a psychic retired police commissioner. As Price turned the pages of the police mug book filled with hundreds of photos, suddenly he pointed to one of them and announced, “That’s the ringleader.” The man was Donald DeFreeze, who was indeed subsequently so identified. Price also described the type and location of the kidnap car, enabling the police to find it within minutes. That remarkable event is one reason Targ believes in ESP. Another occurred when his group made $120,000 by forecasting for nine weeks in a row the changes in the silver-commodity futures market.

As a scientist, Targ demands proof. His experience is based on two decades of investigations at the Stanford Research Institute (SRI), which he cofounded with physicist Harold Puthoff in 1972. This twenty-million dollar program launched during the Cold War was supported by the CIA, NASA, the Defense Intelligence Agency, and Army and Air Force Intelligence. The experiments they conducted routinely presented results could have happened by chance less than once in a million. Targ describes four types of experiments:

1. Remote Viewing
, in which a person describes places and events independent of space and time. For example, while in California Price drew to scale a Soviet weapons factory at Semipalitinsk with great accuracy later confirmed by Satellite photography. In another remote viewing, Targ accurately sketched an airport in San Andreas, Columbia himself.

2. Distant Mental Influence
, where the thoughts of the experimenter can positively or negatively affect the physiology (heart rate, skin resistance, etc.) of a distant person.

3. Whole field isolation
, where someone in a state of sensory isolation accurately describes the visual experiences of someone else in another place.

4. Precognition and retrocausality, showing that the future can affect the past. That is, the elephant you see on television in the morning can be the cause of your having dreamed about elephants the previous night.

Final chapters present evidence for survival after death; explain how ESP works based on the Buddhist/Hindu view of our selves as nonlocal, eternal awareness; discuss the ethics of exercising psychic abilities,and show us how to explore ESP ourselves. “I am convinced,” Targ says, “that most people can learn to move from their ordinary mind to one not obstructed by conventional barriers of space and time. Who would not want to try that?”

Russell Targ
is a physicist and author, and was a pioneer in the development of the laser and laser applications. He holds his B.S. in Physics from Queens College, and did graduate work in physics at Columbia University. Targ has received two National Aeronautics and Space Administration awards for inventions and contributions in lasers and laser communications, and has published over one hundred scientific papers on lasers, plasma physics and ESP research.

In the 1970s and 1980s, Targ co-founded and worked for the CIA-sponsored Stanford Research Institute’s investigation into psychic abilities. His work in this new area, called remote viewing, was published in Nature, The Proceedings of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers and in Proceedings of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. In 1983 and 1984, he accepted invitations to present remote viewing demonstrations and address the USSR Academy of Sciences on this research.

In 1997, Targ retired from Lockheed Martin Missiles & Space Co. as a senior staff scientist, where he developed airborne laser systems for the detection of windshear. Targ now teaches remote viewing workshops worldwide and continues to write. He is co-author of eight books dealing with the scientific investigation of psychic abilities, including Limitless Mind: A Guide to Remote Viewing, Transformation of Consciousness and his autobiography Do You See What I See: Memoirs of a Blind Biker.

Russell Targ is also an editor, publisher, songwriter, producer and teacher. He lives in Palo Alto, California with his wife Patricia.

Russell Targ, laser physicist and well-known author, cofounded Stanford Research Institute’s $25 million program to explore psychic abilities in the 1970’s and 80’s. His new book “The Reality of ESP” details this research. Much like the meditative practices described by Buddhists teachings for the past three millennia, Targ teaches how to separate the analytical overlay, or mental mind chatter, from the true psychic information we all inherently possess.

Anita Moorjani Shares Her Near Death Experience

In her inspirational memoir, Dying to Be Me, about fighting cancer and crossing the boundary between life and death, Anita Moorjani tries to give readers an understanding of her miraculous near death experience. Is there really a border between heaven and earth, between time and eternity?

During my near-death experience (NDE), it felt as if I were connected to the entire universe and everything contained within it; and it seemed that the cosmos was alive, dynamic, and conscious. I found that every thought, emotion, or action I made while expressing through the physical body had an effect on the Whole. In fact, in that realm of Oneness, it felt as though the whole universe were an extension of me. This realization has, of course, dramatically changed the way I view things. We’re all co-creating this world and our lives within it through our emotions, thoughts, and actions.

Language isn’t an adequate tool for expressing something that can’t be perceived with our five physical senses, so it’s challenging to find the right words to express my understanding of what took place during the experience. However, I’ll do my best to share as clearly as possible what I sense about this world, how we move through it, and how it’s changing for the better.

First, it’s important to understand that my near-death experience wasn’t like any other event I’ve experienced. It didn’t have a clear beginning and end. It was more like a door that once opened, never closes. It initiated ongoing, progressive, deeper understanding and new possibilities that never end.

Because words are a poor tool to express this kind of phenomena, what I write here is only meant to stir the appropriate emotions within you. Even after I share this, my own understanding will continue to grow and expand. Words taken literally or held as ultimate truth can keep us stagnant and stuck, holding on to old ideologies. I now know that everything I need is already contained within me and is completely accessible if I allow myself to open up to what I sense is true for me . . . and the same is true for you.

Before my near-death experience, probably because of my culture, I used to think that the purpose of life was to attain nirvana—that is, to evolve beyond the reincarnation cycle of birth and death, striving never to come back into the physical. If I’d grown up completely immersed in Western culture, maybe I would have been trying to get to heaven. This is actually a fairly common goal, regardless of culture—to live in such a way as to secure a perfect afterlife.

But after my NDE, I feel differently. Even though I know I’ll go on living beyond this plane, and I don’t fear physical death anymore, I’ve lost my desire to be anywhere but the place I am now. Interestingly, I’ve become more grounded and focused on seeing the perfection of life in this moment, rather than focusing on the other realm.

This is primarily because the concept of reincarnation in its conventional form of a progression of lifetimes, running sequentially one after the other, wasn’t supported by my NDE. I realized that time doesn’t move in a linear fashion unless we’re using the filter of our physical bodies and minds. Once we’re no longer limited by our earthly senses, every moment exists simultaneously. I’ve come to think that the concept of reincarnation is really just an interpretation, a way for our intellect to make sense of all existence happening at once.

We think in terms of “time passing,” but in my NDE, it felt as though time just is, and we’re moving through it. This means that not only do all points of time exist simultaneously, but also that in the other realm, we can go faster, slower, or even backward and sideways. In the physical plane, however, our sensory organs limit us. Our eyes take in what they see in this instant; our ears hear in the same way. The mind can only exist in one moment, and then it strings those moments together to form a linear progression. But when we spill out of our bodies, we cross all time and space with awareness—not sight, hearing, touch, taste, or smell. We’re pure consciousness.

I experienced this while in the NDE state. I was aware of my brother on a plane coming to see me and of conversations the doctors were having outside my room and down the hall. I understood many aspects of my future life, as they would be panning out, as well as what would happen if I didn’t come back and live. This showed me that time, space, and solid matter don’t always exist as we normally think of them. During my NDE, I felt that I could focus on any point in time that I needed to access.

Because of this, I believe that when someone has a glimpse of what have previously been interpreted as “past lives,” they’re actually accessing parallel or simultaneous existences, because all time exists at once. And because we’re all connected, it’s possible to achieve states of consciousness where glimpses of others’ reality seep through into our present moment, entering our consciousness as though they were memories.

My new perspective has made me wonder about our focus and purpose, if reincarnation and time itself don’t exist the way that so many of us were raised to believe. What if all our goals are the wrong way around? What if heaven or nirvana is actually here in physical expression, and not there in the afterlife? Here is a video interview of me explaining more with Hay House CEO, Reid Tracy:

James Van Praagh: Tune into the spiritual world

Written by the New York Times bestselling author of The Secret History of the World, The Sacred History takes you on a captivating journey through the great myths of ancient civilizations to the astounding discoveries of the modern era.

The Sacred History is the epic story of human interaction with angels and other forms of higher intelligence, starting from Creation all the way through to the operations of the supernatural in the modern world.

What emerges is an alternative history of great men and women, guided by angels or demons, and the connection between modern-day mystics and their ancient counterparts. This spellbinding historical narrative brings together great figures— such as Krishna, Moses, Buddha, Elijah, Mary and Jesus and Mohammed—and stories from African, Native American and Celtic traditions.

Woven into this is an amazing array of mystical connections, including the surprising roots not only of astrology and alternative medicine but also of important literary and artistic movements, aspects of mainstream science and religion and a wide range of cultural references that takes in modern cinema, music and literature.

This is a book of true stories, but it is also a book about stories. It shows how they can tell us things about the deep structure of the human experience that are sometimes forgotten, revealing mysterious and mystic patterns, and helping us to see the operation of the supernatural in our own lives.

Jonathan Black – The Sacred History: How Angels, Mystics and Higher Intelligence Made our World

The Sacred History is an account of the workings of the supernatural in history. It tells the epic story of angels, from Creation, to Evolution through to the operations of the supernatural in the modern world.

This tale of how people and peoples have been helped by angels and other angelic beings is woven into a spellbinding narrative that brings together Krishna, Moses, Buddha, Elijah, Mary and Jesus, Mohammed, Joan of Arc, the angels who helped Hungarian Jews persecuted by the Nazis, and stories from African, Native American and Celtic traditions.

Told from the spiritual point of view, The Sacred History relates every betrayal, every change of heart, every twist and turn, everything that looks like a coincidence, every portent, every clue, every defeat, every rescue moments before the prison door clangs shut. This is the angelic version of events.

Jonathan Black on Mysticism in The Sacred History

Most scholars dismiss research into the paranormal as pseudoscience, a frivolous pursuit for the paranoid or gullible. Even historians of religion, whose work naturally attends to events beyond the realm of empirical science, have shown scant interest in the subject. But the history of psychical phenomena, Jeffrey J. Kripal contends, is an untapped source of insight into the sacred and by tracing that history through the last two centuries of Western thought we can see its potential centrality to the critical study of religion.

Kripal grounds his study in the work of four major figures in the history of paranormal research: psychical researcher Frederic Myers; writer and humorist Charles Fort; astronomer, computer scientist, and ufologist Jacques Vallee; and philosopher and sociologist Bertrand Méheust. Through incisive analyses of these thinkers, Kripal ushers the reader into a beguiling world somewhere between fact, fiction, and fraud. The cultural history of telepathy, teleportation, and UFOs; a ghostly love story; the occult dimensions of science fiction; cold war psychic espionage; galactic colonialism; and the intimate relationship between consciousness and culture all come together in Authors of the Impossible, a dazzling and profound look at how the paranormal bridges the sacred and the scientific.

Jeffrey J. Kripal is the J. Newton Rayzor Chair in Philosophy and Religious Thought at Rice University. He is the author of several books, including Esalen: America and the Religion of No Religion and The Serpent’s Gift: Gnostic Reflections on the Study of Religion.

Can a place be inherently evil? Are the violent and paranormal events so frequently experienced throughout the history of the Bridgewater Triangle mere coincidence or evidence of an unseen, epic battle waged between the forces of good and evil? This is the true story of the area of southeastern Massachusetts that has become infamous worldwide for paranormal activity.

Peter Tower traces the history of this mysterious and terrifying area, from its beginnings after the last ice age through the many bizarre and infamous paranormal events experienced there in the 1970s and 1980s. The author’s engaging storytelling technique combines in-depth research of the area’s geologic and cultural history with narrative vignettes and firsthand interviews from people that have encountered UFOs, Bigfoot, and mystery creatures, and experienced other unexplained events there. Tower brings the area to life in such a vivid fashion that the book proves to be nearly as mysterious and frightening for readers as experiencing the Bridgewater Triangle first-hand.

Peter Tower grew up in the Bridgewater Triangle, on the edge of the Hockomock swamp. As a boy, he played “Indian,” built forts, caught water bugs and turtles, and traveled through the swamp on top of old stone walls. Today, he and his family live in Vermont, where Peter works as a freelance writer and technology consultant to area corporations. In his free time, Peter enjoys studying Native American history, amateur archaeology, hiking in the mountains, and fishing the local lakes and rivers.

UFOs and Bigfoot in Massachusetts? Bridgewater Triangle Hockomock Swamp

A closer look at an area in southeastern Massachusetts known as the Bridgewater Triangle. There have been numerous reports of paranormal activity from ufos, bigfoot, ghosts, and thunderbirds. But is there any proof? Take a trip to the center of the triangle inside the Hockomock Swamp, the reported hub of activity.

Most of us know it well–the almost physical sensation that we are the object of someone’s attention. Is the feeling all in our heads? What about related phenomena, such as telepathy and premonitions? Are they merely subjective beliefs? In The Sense of Being Stared At, renowned biologist Rupert Sheldrake explores the intricacies of the mind and discovers that our perceptive abilities are stronger than most of us could have imagined.

Sheldrake argues persuasively in this compelling book that such phenomena are, in fact, real. He rejects the label of “paranormal” and shows how these psychic occurrences are in fact a normal part of human nature. Combining the tradition of pragmatic experimentation with a refusal to accept the conventional answers to explain such phenomena, Sheldrake pioneers an intriguing new inquiry into the mysteries of our deepest nature. Rigorously researched yet completely accessible, this groundbreaking book provides a refreshing new way of thinking about ourselves and our relationships with other people, animals, and the world around us.

There are 4 parts:
Part 1: Telepathy
Part 2: The Power of Attention
Part 3: Remote Viewing and Foreshadowings of the Future
Part 4: How does the 7th Sense Work?

The book begins by explaining how the “Sixth Sense” has already been claimed by biologists working on the electrical and magnetic senses of animals. Eels use electrical fields to sense objects around them, sharks and rays use similar fields to hunt, migratory birds and fish have a magnetic senses (biological compass), snakes have heat-sensing abilities, spiders detect web vibrations, etc.

Mr. Sheldrake explains how the 7th sense is biological, not supernatural. It extends beyond the body, though how is not exactly known. “To brush aside what people have experienced is not to be scientific, but unscientific. Science is founded on empirical method…” (experience and observation). “But despite an impresssive accumulation of evidence, psychic research has never been accepted within institutional sciences. It has been kept on the margins as a result of powerful taboos against the “paranormal.”

“In the background lurks the archaic fear of witchcraft.”
Rupert Sheldrake, Ph.D., is a former research fellow of the Royal Society and former director of studies in biochemistry and cell biology at Clare College, Cambridge University. From 2005 to 2012 he was director of the Perrott-Warrick Project on unexplained human abilities, funded from Trinity College, Cambridge.

Rupert Sheldrake – Morphic Fields and Cosmic Consciousness

Rupert Sheldrake discusses his concept of Morphic Fields. In this conversation he makes reference to the morphic fields of the planets, the solar system and the galaxy! He also mentions the value of gratitude, explains his journey from standard western atheism through India, psychedelics all the way to Christianity. He is for me one of the worlds greatest minds and listening to him is absolutely inspiring.

New York Times bestselling author David Wilcock unlocks the key to a universal life force that is influencing and guiding humanity toward enlightenment.

With The Source Field Investigations, David Wilcock joined Graham Hancock and Lynne McTaggart as a leading writer exploring the intersection of ancient mysteries and new science. He used cutting-edge alternative science to delve into the mysteries behind the 2012 prophecies, and readers embraced his findings: The Source Field Investigations was a New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today bestseller. In his new book, The Synchronicity Key, Wilcock embarks on an astonishing investigation into what lies beyond those prophecies —finding proof that everything in our lives is not only connected, it all influences everything else.

Using history, astrology, and synchronicity theory as well as concepts such as fractals, spiritual geometry, quantum physics, and other new research, Wilcock shows that there is a hidden architecture within time, guiding individuals and nations through a system of enlightenment Joseph Campbell called the Hero’s Journey. Historical events occur in shockingly precise, repeating cycles of time as a result. Once we understand and identify the hidden laws governing the fates of individuals and nations through seemingly random “synchronicity,” we are left with a remarkable blueprint of how best to lead our lives spiritually in the post-2012 world.

David Wilcock is an author, professional lecturer, filmmaker, and researcher of ancient civilizations, consciousness science, and new paradigms of matter and energy. His seminal thoughts and expertise on consciousness have reached hundreds of thousands of people through his extensive online presence at DivineCosmos.com. His first book, The Source Field Investigations, was a New York Times bestseller. He lives in California.

Intuitive researcher and filmmaker, David Wilcock, discussed how UFO intervention is thwarting efforts to start WWIII and how this interference is part of an organized movement toward a golden age of humanity. He dubbed these actions “divine intervention,” since it appears that when the UFOs make their presence known it seems to be for benevolent reasons. To that end, he specifically cited craft shutting down nuclear weapons as an example of their positive intent. Given the ephemeral and surreptitious work of these positive UFO events, Wilcock surmised that they are beholden to a “prime directive” to not overtly interfere in human events unless it is absolutely necessary, such as curtailing the proliferation of nuclear weapons.

According to Wilcock, these benign UFOs are working in opposition against a group he called “the cabal” which consists of the power brokers behind the New World Order agenda. The leaders of the cabal, Wilcock said, are “openly and routinely interacting with a variety of extraterrestrial species,” possess knowledge that humans are actually ET hybrids, and maintain stargates that allow them to leave the Earth at will. He contended that one of the key goals of the cabal, which has been planned for 300 years, is a “mass uncloaking of their true identity and their philosophy.” This philosophy, he said, is rooted in Luciferianism, but has been corrupted over time to espouse ideals like “the manipulation and control of people for the betterment of self” and using occult rituals for personal gain.

Eventually, he said, this conflict between the benevolent ETs and the cabal will reach a crescendo as the planet shifts into a “golden age” as prophesied by religions and myths around the world. However, he claimed that the prophesies were “cleverly worded” by the ETs to trick the sinister “powers that be” into believing that mass disasters will befall the planet during this transition, thus distracting them and keeping them fearful. Based on his research, Wilcock explained that the shift into a “golden age” is not simply an overnight change for the human race but one that “requires a spiritual evolution to occur.” This evolution, he said, will give the human race a greater understanding of its role in the universe as a whole. Wilcock expressed great optimism that the metamorphosis of the human race, coupled with the intervention of the ETs, will ultimately lead to the crumbling of the nefarious Luciferian cabal.

Biography:

David Wilcock is a professional intuitive consultant who, since reading Richard C. Hoagland’s “The Monuments of Mars” in 1993, has intensively researched ufology, ancient civilizations, consciousness science, and new paradigms of matter and energy. He is the author of a critically acclaimed trilogy of scientific research works, known as the Convergence series, which gives definitive support to the idea that a change in matter, energy and consciousness is now occurring on the Earth and throughout the solar system.

Wilcock has appeared on broadcast television, lectured throughout the United States and Japan, published a variety of magazine articles and appeared on numerous radio talk shows. He is the co-author of the book “The Reincarnation of Edgar Cayce,” now available in bookstores nationwide, and a summary of his latest scientific work appears therein, where a breakthrough case for mass, spontaneous DNA evolution on Earth is unveiled.

David Wilcock: The Synchronicity Key | Pt. 1 of the Full Video!

Published on Aug 25, 2013

In Part 1 of his epic YouTube comeback video, NYT best-selling author and TV host David Wilcock asks profound questions: What if the Universe is alive — and is trying to communicate with you through synchronicity and the Law of Karma?

What if life on earth is not random, but is guided by mysterious forces that are written into the orbital paths of the stars and planets themselves?

What if the Illuminati / Bilderberg / New World Order cabal is allowed to exist by a loving Creator — to help us process karma on a massive level and reflect our own negativity so it can be healed?

What if it is mathematically inevitable that the “bad guys” will be defeated at this very moment in our history — thanks to a 25,920-year cycle that is now completing itself, and is vastly older than human life on earth?

What if all space, time, matter and energy is composed of a Source Field that is alive and intelligent?

What if there is a celestial “personality” that affects how we think and feel as we drift through different regions of space, in repeating cycles of time?

What if the Cabal, New World Order and / or Illuminati are being guided by these same cycles — and have never been allowed to do more than what the cycles permit them to?

What if they inherited a variety of powerful symbols and teachings that were originally positive, and have since been horribly contorted into something negative?

What if we are now seeing the fulfillment of a vast script that is guiding all life on earth through a series of spiritual lessons known as “archetypes?”

Part 1 of this groundbreaking video series reveals some of the many mysteries in David’s epic new book, The Synchronicity Key — available now for you to order and enjoy in hardcover, Ebook or audio form, dictated by David Wilcock.

If these great cycles of time are real — and David gives extensive proof that they are — then nothing can be more important than to study and understand them, and learn what they are here to teach us.

We just might discover that the events we are now seeing will usher in a Golden Age of peace and prosperity on earth — and quite possibly transform biological human life into a light-body form.

Ascension does seem to be the key. The great cycles keep repeating the class we need to master in order to gain these stunning new abilities.

Great teachers like Jesus and Buddha came here to reveal what we need to know — and David also deftly reveals how the Bible is packed with clues that Jesus and other great teachers were very well aware of these cycles.
