Near-Death Experience Story of Mellen-Thomas Benedict

The near death experience of Mellen-Thomas Benedict is one of the most remarkable NDEs ever documented. It provides a very in depth and uplifting view of life, death and the spaces in between. P. M. H. Atwater, L.H.D., www.pmhatwater.com who is one of the original researchers in the field of near-death studies, having begun her work in 1978 says of Mellen-Thomas Benedict:

“I can attest that his case is genuine and his claims about the brain tumor and the conditions of his death are true. I have met his mother and step-father, been in his and their homes, and have followed his life since – his struggles and his accomplishments – as he sought to find a way to integrate his experience into his daily life while still honoring the mission he felt guided to fulfill.”

Atwater herself is one of the very few top NDE researchers to have actually had an NDE. Her website is filled with very interesting NDE research information and articles of hers. Her contribution to near-death studies is considered to be one of the most important as her first two books, Beyond the Light and Coming Back to Life, are deemed the Bibles of the near-death experience by researchers and a multitude of experiencers and enthusiasts. Using her firm understanding of police investigative techniques as a protocol, she has specialized in original fieldwork and research that also included sessions with significant others. Her findings are contained in her books. Some of her findings have now been clinically verified.

The account below is taken from Benedict’s website www.mellen-thomas.com and his new books Journey Through The Light and Back” and “Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Other Side” documenting all that he learned through this experience have just been published.

Mellen-Thomas Benedict’s story…

In 1982 I died from terminal cancer. The condition I had was inoperable, and any kind of chemotherapy they could give me would just have made me more of a vegetable. I was given six to eight months to live. I had been an information freak in the1970’s, and I had become increasingly despondent over the nuclear crisis, the ecology crisis, and so forth. So, since I did not have a spiritual basis, I began to believe that nature had made a mistake, and that we were probably a cancerous organism on the planet. I saw no way that we could get out from all the problems we had created for ourselves and the planet. I perceived all humans as cancer, and that is what I got. That is what killed me. Be careful what your world view is. It can feed back on you, especially if it is a negative world view. I had a seriously negative one. That is what led me into my death.

I tried all sorts of alternative healing methods, but nothing helped. So I determined that this was really just between me and God. I had never really faced God before, or even dealt with God. I was not into any kind of spirituality at the time, but I began a journey into learning about spirituality and alterna¬tive healing. I set out to do all the reading I could and bone up on the subject, because I did not want to be surprised on the other side. So I started reading on various religions and philosophies. They were all very interesting, and gave hope that there was something on the other side.

I ended up in hospice care. I remember waking up one morning at home about 4:30 AM, and I just knew that this was it. This was the day I was going to die. So I called a few friends and said goodbye. I woke up my hospice caretaker and told her. I had a private agreement with her that she would leave my dead body alone for six hours, since I had read that all kinds of interesting things happen when you die. I went back to sleep.

The next thing I remember is the beginning of a typical near-death experience. Suddenly I was fully aware and I was standing up, but my body was in the bed. There was this darkness around me. Being out of my body was even more vivid than ordinary experience. It was so vivid that I could see every room in the house, I could see the top of the house, I could see around the house, I could see under the house. There was this Light shining. I turned toward the Light. The Light was very similar to what many other people have described in their near-death experiences. It was so magnificent. It is tangible; you can feel it. It is alluring; you want to go to it like you would want to go to your ideal mother’s or father’s arms. As I began to move toward the Light, I knew intuitively that if I went to the Light, I would be dead. So as I was moving toward the Light I said, “Please wait a minute, just hold on a second here. I want to think about this; I would like to talk to you before I go.”

To my surprise, the entire experience halted at that point. You are in control of your life after death experience. You are not on a roller coaster ride. So my request was honored and I had some conversations with the Light. The Light kept changing into different figures, like Jesus, Buddha, Krishna, mandalas, archetypal images and signs. I asked the Light, “What is going on here? Please, Light, clarify yourself for me. I really want to know the reality of the situation.” I cannot really say the exact words, because it was sort of telepathy. The Light responded. The information transferred to me was that during your life after death experience your beliefs shape the kind of feedback you are getting before the Light. If you were a Buddhist or Catholic or Fundamentalist, you get a feedback loop of your own stuff. You have a chance to look at it and examine it, but most people do not.

As the Light revealed itself to me, I became aware that what I was really seeing was our higher Self matrix. We all have a higher Self, or an oversoul part of our being. It revealed itself to me in its truest energy form. The only way I can really describe it is that the being of the higher Self is more like a conduit. It did not look like that, but it is a direct connection to the Source that each and every one of us has. We are directly connected to the Source. So the Light was showing me the higher Self matrix. I was not committed to one particular religion. So that is what was being fed back to me during my life after death experience. As I asked the Light to keep clearing for me, to keep explaining, I understood what the higher Self matrix is. We have a grid around the planet where all the higher Selves are connected. This is like a great company, a next subtle level of energy around us, the spirit level, you might say.

Then, after a couple of minutes, I asked for more clarification. I really wanted to know what the universe is about, and I was ready to go at that time. I said “I am ready, take me.” Then the Light turned into the most beautiful thing that I have ever seen: a mandala of human souls on this planet. Now I came to this with my negative view of what was happening on the planet. So as I asked the Light to keep clarifying for me, I saw in this magnificent mandala how beautiful we all are in our essence, our core. We are the most beautiful creations. The human soul, the human matrix that we all make together is absolutely fantastic, elegant, exotic, everything. I just cannot say enough about how it changed my opinion of human beings in that instant. I said, “Oh, God, I did not know how beautiful we are.” At any level, high or low, in whatever shape you are in, you are the most beautiful creation, you are. The revelations coming from the Light and seemed to go on and on, then I asked the Light, “Does this mean that Mankind will be saved?” Then, like a trumpet blast with a shower of spiraling lights, the Great Light spoke, saying, “Remember this and never forget; you save, redeem and heal yourself. You always have. You always will. You were created with the power to do so from before the beginning of the world.”

In that instant I realized even more. I realized that WE HAVE ALREADY BEEN SAVED, and we saved ourselves because we were designed to self-correct like the rest of God’s universe. This is what the second coming is about. I thanked the Light of God with all my heart. The best thing I could come up with was these simple words of total appreciation: “Oh dear God, dear Universe, dear Great Self, I Love My Life.” The Light seemed to breathe me in even more deeply. It was as if the Light was completely absorbing me. The Love Light is, to this day, indescribable. I entered into another realm, more profound than the last, and became aware of something more, much more. It was an enormous stream of Light, vast and full, deep in the Heart of Life.

I asked what this was. The Light responded, “This is the RIVER OF LIFE. Drink of this manna water to your heart’s content.” So I did. I took one big drink and then another. To drink of Life Itself! I was in ecstasy.

Then the Light said, “You have a desire.” The Light knew all about me, everything past, present and future. “Yes!” I whispered. I asked to see the rest of the Universe; beyond our solar system, beyond all human illusion. The Light then told me that I could go with the Stream. I did, and was carried Through the Light at the End of the Tunnel. I felt and heard a series of very soft sonic booms. What a rush! Suddenly I seemed to be rocketing away from the planet on this stream of Life. I saw the earth fly away. The solar system, in all its splendor, whizzed by and disappeared. At faster than light speed, I flew through the center of the galaxy, absorbing more knowledge as I went. I learned that this galaxy, and all of the Universe, is bursting with many different varieties of LIFE. I saw many worlds. The good news is that we are not alone in this Universe!

As I rode this stream of consciousness through the center of the galaxy, the stream was expanding in awesome fractal waves of energy. The super clusters of galaxies with all their ancient wisdom flew by. At first I thought I was going somewhere; actually traveling. But then I realized that, as the stream was expanding, my own consciousness was also expanding to take in everything in the Universe! All creation passed by me. It was an unimaginable wonder! I truly was a Wonder Child; a babe in Wonderland!

At this point, I found myself in a profound stillness, beyond all silence. I could see or perceive FOREVER, beyond Infinity. I was in the Void. I was in pre-creation, before the Big Bang. I had crossed over the beginning of time/the First Word/the First vibration. I was in the Eye of Creation. I felt as if I was touching the Face of God. It was not a religious feeling. Simply I was at one with Absolute Life and Consciousness. When I say that I could see or perceive forever, I mean that I could experience all of creation generating itself. It was without beginning and without end. That’s a mind expanding thought, isn’t it?

Scientists perceive the Big Bang as a single event which created the Universe. I saw during my life after death experience that the Big Bang is only one of an infinite number of Big Bangs creating Universes endlessly and simultaneously. The only images that even come close in human terms would be those created by super computers using fractal geometry equations. The ancients knew of this. They said God had periodically created new Universes by breathing out, and recreated other Universes by breathing in. These epochs were called Yugas. Modern science called this the Big Bang.

I was in absolute, pure consciousness. I could see or perceive all the Big Bangs or Yugas creating and recreating themselves. Instantly I entered into them all simultaneously. I saw that each and every little piece of creation has the power to create. It is very difficult to try to explain this. I am still speechless about this. It took me years after I returned from my near-death experience to assimilate any words at all for the Void experience. I can tell you this now: the Void is less than nothing, yet more than everything that is! The Void is absolute zero; chaos forming all possibilities. It is Absolute Consciousness; much more than even Universal Intelligence.

The Void is the vacuum or nothingness between all physical manifestations. The SPACE between atoms and their components. Modern science has begun to study this space between everything. They call it Zero point. Whenever they try to measure it, their instruments go off the scale, or to infinity, so to speak. They have no way, as of yet, to measure infinity accurately. There is more of the 0 space in your own body and the Universe than anything else! What mystics call the Void is not a void. It is so full of energy, a different kind of energy that has created everything that we are.

Everything since the Big Bang is vibration, from the first Word, which is the first vibration. The biblical “I am” really has a question mark after it. “I am—What am I?” So creation is God exploring God’s Self through every way imaginable, in an on¬going, infinite exploration through every one of us. I began to see during my near-death experience that everything that is, is the Self, literally, your Self, my Self. Everything is the great Self.

That is why God knows even when a leaf falls. That is possible because wherever you are is the center of the universe. Wherever any atom is, that is the center of the universe. There is God in that, and God in the Void. As I was exploring the Void during my life after death experience and all the Yugas or creations, I was completely out of time and space as we know it.

In this expanded state, I discovered that creation is about Absolute Pure Consciousness, or God, coming into the Experience of Life as we know it. The Void itself is devoid of experience. It is pre life, before the first vibration. Godhead is about more than Life and Death. Therefore there is even more than Life and Death to experience in the Universe! When I realized this I was finished with the Void, and wanted to return to this creation, or Yuga. It just seemed like the natural thing to do.

Then I suddenly came back through the second Light, or the Big Bang, hearing several more velvet booms. I rode the stream of consciousness back through all of creation, and what a ride it was! The super clusters of galaxies came through me with even more insights. I passed through the center of our galaxy, which is a black hole. Black holes are the great processors or recyclers of the Universe. Do you know what is on the other side of a Black Hole? We are; our galaxy, which has been reprocessed from another Universe. In its total energy configuration, the galaxy looked like a fantastic city of lights.

All energy this side of the Big Bang is light. Every sub atom, atom, star, planet, even consciousness itself is made of light and has a frequency and/or particle. Light is living stuff. Everything is made of light, even stones. So everything is alive. Everything is made from the Light of God; everything is very intelligent.

As I rode the stream on and on, I could eventually see a huge Light coming. I knew it was the First Light; the higher Self Light Matrix of our solar system. Then the entire solar system appeared in the Light, accompanied by one of those velvet booms. I could see all the energy that this solar system generates, and it is an incredible light show! I could hear the Music of the Spheres.

Our solar system, as do all celestial bodies, generates a unique matrix of light, sound and vibratory energies. Advanced civilizations from other star systems can spot life as we know it in the universe by the vibratory or energy matrix imprint. It is child’s play. The earth’s Wonder child (human beings) make an abundance of sound right now, like children playing in the backyard of the universe.

The Light explained to me that there is no death; we are immortal beings. We have already been alive forever! I realized that we are part of a natural living system that recycles itself endlessly. I was never told that I had to come back. I just knew that I would. It was only natural, from what I had seen during my life after death experience. I don’t know how long I was with the Light, in human time. But there came a moment when I realized that all my questions had been answered and my return was near.

When I say that all my questions were answered on the other side, I mean to say just that. All my questions have been answered. Every human has a different life and set of questions to explore. Some of our questions are Universal, but each of us is exploring this thing we call Life in our own unique way. So is every other form of life, from mountains to every leaf on every tree. And that is very important to the rest of us in this Universe. Because it all contributes to the Big Picture, the fullness of Life. We are literally God exploring God’s self in an infinite Dance of Life. Your uniqueness enhances all of Life.

As I began my return to the life cycle, it never crossed my mind, nor was I told that I would return to the same body. It just did not matter. I had complete trust in the Light and the Life process. As the stream merged with the great Light, I asked never to forget the revelations and the feelings of what I had learned on the other side. There was a “Yes.” It felt like a kiss to my soul.

Then I was taken back through the Light into the vibratory realm again. The whole process reversed, with even more information being given to me. I came back home, and I was given lessons from my near-death experience on the mechanics of reincarnation. I was given answers to all those little questions I had: “How does this work? How does that work?”

I knew that I would be reincarnated. The earth is a great processor of energy, and individual consciousness evolves out of that into each one of us. I thought of myself as a human for the first time, and I was happy to be that. From what I have seen, I would be happy to be an atom in this universe. An atom. So to be the human part of God… this is the most fantastic blessing. It is a blessing beyond our wildest estimation of what blessing can be. For each and every one of us to be the human part of this experience is awesome, and magnificent. Each and every one of us, no matter where we are, screwed up or not, is a blessing to the planet, right where we are.

I went through the reincarnation process expecting to be a baby somewhere. But I was given a lesson on how individual identity and consciousness evolve. I was so surprised when I opened my eyes. I do not know why, because I understood it, but it was still such a surprise to be back in this body, back in my room with someone looking over me crying her eyes out. It was my hospice caretaker.

She had given up an hour and a half after finding me dead. My body was stiff and inflexible. She went into the other room. Then I awakened and saw the light outside. I tried to get up to go to it, but I fell out of the bed. She heard a loud “clunk,” ran in and found me on the floor. When I recovered, I was very surprised and yet very awed about what had happened to me during my near-death experience.

At first all the memory of the trip that I have now was not there. I kept slipping out of this world and kept asking, “Am I alive?” This world seemed more like a dream than that one. Within three days I was feeling normal again, clearer, yet different than I had ever felt in my life. My memory of my near-death experience came back later.

I could see nothing wrong with any human being I had ever seen. Before that I was really judgmental. I thought a lot of people were really screwed up, in fact I thought that everybody was screwed up but me. But I got clear on all that. About three months later a friend said I should get tested, so I went and got the scans and so forth. I really felt good, so I was afraid of getting bad news. I remember the doctor at the clinic looking at the before and after scans, saying, “Well, there is nothing here now.” I said, “Really, it must be a miracle”’ He said “No, these things happen; they are called spontaneous remission.” He acted very unimpressed. But here was a miracle, and I was impressed, even if no one else was.

During my near-death experience I had a descent into what you might call Hell, and it was very surprising. I did not see Satan or evil. My descent into Hell was a descent into each person’s customized human misery, ignorance, and darkness of not knowing. It seemed like a miserable eternity. But each of the millions of souls around me had a little star of light always available. But no one seemed to pay attention to it. They were so consumed with their own grief, trauma and misery. But, after what seemed an eternity, I started calling out to that Light, like a child calling to a parent for help.

Then the Light opened up and formed a tunnel that came right to me and insulated me from all that fear and pain, That is what Hell really is. So what we are doing is learning to hold hands, to come together. The doors of Hell are open now. We are going to link up, hold hands, and walk out of Hell together.

The Light came to me and turned into a huge golden angel. I said, “Are you the angel of death?” It expressed to me that it was my oversoul, my higher Self matrix, a super ancient part of ourselves. Then I was taken to the Light.

Soon our science will quantify spirit. Isn’t that going to be wonderful? We are coming up with devices now that are sensitive to subtle energy or spirit energy. Physicists use these atomic colliders to smash atoms to see what they are made of. They have got it down to quarks and charm, and all that. Well, one day they are going to come down to the little thing that holds it all together, and they are going to have to call that … God. We are just beginning to understand that we are creating too, as we go along.

As I saw forever, I came to a realm during my near-death experience in which there is a point where we pass all knowledge and begin creating the next fractal, the next level. We have that power to create as we explore. And that is God expanding itself through us. Since my return I have experienced the Light spontaneously, and I have learned how to get to that space almost any time in my meditation.

Each one of you can do this. You do not have to die or have a near-death experience to do this. It is within your equipment; you are wired for it already. The body is the most magnificent Light being there is. The body is a universe of incredible Light. Spirit is not pushing us to dissolve this body. That is not what is happening. Stop trying to become God; God is becoming you. Here.

I asked God: “What is the best religion on the planet? Which one is right?” And Godhead said, with great love: “I don’t care.” That was incredible grace. When Godhead said, “I don’t care,” I immediately understood that it is for us to care about. It is important, because we are the caring beings. It matters to us and that is where it is important. What you have is the energy equation in spirituality.

Ultimate Godhead does not care if you are Protestant, Buddhist, or whatever. It is all a blooming facet of the whole. I wish that all religions would realize it and let each other be. It is not the end of each religion, but we are talking about the same God. Live and let live. Each has a different view. And it all adds up to the big picture; it is all important. I went over to the other side during my near-death experience with a lot of fears about toxic waste, nuclear missiles, the population explosion, the rainforest.

I came back loving every single problem. I love nuclear waste. I love the mushroom cloud; this is the holiest mandala that we have manifested to date, as an archetype. It, more than any religion or philosophy on earth, brought us together all of a sudden, to a new level of consciousness. Knowing that maybe we can blow up the planet fifty times, or 500 times, we finally realize that maybe we are all here together now. For a period they had to keep setting off more bombs to get it in to us. Then we started saying, “we do not need this any more.”

Now we are actually in a safer world than we have ever been in, and it is going to get safer. So I came back from my near-death experience loving toxic waste, because it brought us together. These things are so big. As Peter Russell might say, these problems are now “soul size.” Do we have soul size answers” YES!

The clearing of the rain forest will slow down, and in fifty years there will be more trees on the planet than in a long time. If you are into ecology, go for it; you are that part of the system that is becoming aware. Go for it with all your might, but do not be depressed. It is part of a larger thing. Earth is in the process of domesticating itself. It is never again going to be as wild a place as it once was. There will be great wild places, reserves where nature thrives. Gardening and reserves will be the thing in the future.

Population increase is getting very close to the optimal range of energy to cause a shift in consciousness. That shift in consciousness will change politics, money, energy. After dying, going through my near-death experience and coming back, I really respect life and death.

In our DNA experiments we may have opened the door to a great secret. Soon we will be able to live as long as we want to live in this body. After living 150 years or so, there will be an intuitive soul sense that you will want to change channels. Living forever in one body is not as creative as reincarnation, as transferring energy in this fantastic vortex of energy that we are in. We are actually going to see the wisdom of life and death, and enjoy it. As it is now, we have already been alive forever. This body, that you are in, has been alive forever. It comes from an unending stream of life, going back to the Big Bang and beyond. This body gives life to the next life, in dense and subtle energy. This body has been alive forever already.

Graham Hancock and the Origins of Consciousness

Graham Hancock has some interesting ideas and the 2009 blockbuster disaster movie 2012 was inspired by Hancock’s earlier book Fingerprints of the Gods. According to Roland Emmerich, Director, Producer and Writer of 2012, in an interview with the London magazine Time Out: “I always wanted to do a biblical flood movie, but I never felt I had the hook. I first read about the Earth’s Crust Displacement Theory in Graham Hancock’s Fingerprints of the Gods.”

Hancock’s book, Supernatural: Meetings With the Ancient Teachers of Mankind, was released in the UK in October 2005 and in the US in 2006. In it, Hancock examines paleolithic cave art in the light of David Lewis-Williams’ neuropsychological model, exploring its relation to the development of the fully-modern human mind.

Supernatural poses the following questions:

  • The evolution of modern humans has taken more than five million years but until less than 50,000 years ago we had no art, no religion, no sophisticated symbolism, no creative and innovative thinking, and quite possibly no language. Then, a dramatic and electrifying change overtook our ancestors in every part of the globe, and all the skills and qualities that we value most highly in ourselves today appeared suddenly, already fully formed, as though bestowed on us by hidden powers. Scientists describe this change as “the greatest riddle in human history”.
  • The first art of mankind, in the painted caves and rock-shelters of southwest Europe and South Africa, dates back to the time of the great change. Why do these ancient paintings, tens of thousands of years old, depict beings of a kind that are never found in nature – strange and eerie hybrids with the heads of animals and the bodies of humans?
  • In the depths of the Amazon rainforest tribal shamans drink a powerful hallucinogenic brew called Ayahuasca (“the vine of souls”) in order to induce visions. When they return to normal consciousness, after experiencing what they believe is out-of-body travel in the spirit world, they make paintings of the “intelligent beings” they have encountered. Why are many of these beings also depicted as uncanny hybrids with the heads of animals or serpents and the bodies of humans? And why do the shamans say that they have taught them everything they know about how to live in the jungle, and about the medicinal value of rainforest plants?
  • Why do Western lab volunteers, placed experimentally under the influence of hallucinogens such as DMT, psilocybin, mescaline and LSD, report visionary encounters with “beings” in the form of animal-human hybrids – beings identical to those the Amazonian shamans claim to meet and to those painted by our ancestors in the prehistoric caves?
  • What is the significance of the astonishing similarities between the entities known as “aliens”, ET’s” or “greys” in modern popular culture, the entities known as “fairies”, “elves” and “goblins” in the Middle Ages, and the entities that shamans in surviving tribal cultures know as “ghosts”, “gods” and “spirits”? Why are such figures depicted in prehistoric art as far afield as Africa, Europe, the Americas and Australia?
  • Why have eminent scientists at the cutting edge of consciousness research, especially those who study the ways that hallucinogens work in the brain, recently begun to question long-established theories about the nature of reality? Why are some now even ready to consider the possibility, long ago embraced by shamans, that, far from being “false perceptions”, what we see in the strange imagery and experiences of hallucinations may be real perceptions of other “dimensions” and the beings inhabiting them?
  • Why did Nobel Prize-winner Francis Crick keep concealed until his death the astonishing circumstances under which he first “saw” the double-helix structure of DNA? And why did he become convinced that the DNA molecule did not evolve naturally upon this planet but was sent here in bacteria by an alien civilisation?
  • Why does the 97 per cent of DNA that scientists do not understand – so-called “junk DNA” – contain chemical “sequences” arranged in patterns and frequencies that are otherwise only found in the deep coding of all human languages?
  • Could the “supernaturals” first depicted in the painted caves and rock shelters – and still accessible to us today in altered states of consciousness – be the ancient teachers of mankind? Could it be they who first ushered us into the full birthright of our humanity? And could it be that human evolution is not just the “blind”, “meaningless” “natural” process that Darwin identified, but something else, more purposive and intelligent, that we have barely even begun to understand?  (from www.grahamhancock.com)

Here’s a short clip of Hancock talking about Francis Crick’s interesting ideas about the origins of DNA:

Quantum Communcation, Soulmates and Consciousness

Is life an accidental series of chance events or is it consciously created by the signals we send out to the world around us? More and more the world of quantum physics is aligning with ancient spiritual truths that say that we are what we attract and what we attract will largely be shaped by how in tune or not we are with conscious creation.

According to David Sereda, who made the excellent documentary Quantum Communication [link at end of post]:

“We can see how we can focus and actually attract not only our soulmates and soul matches, but our future business partners and actually creating a career for ourselves that is more harmonious to who we really are. We can also see how we can use the field to attract our spiritual teachers. We want to find teachers that resonate with where we want to go in our spirituality regardless of our religion, but also how we can use the field to create a dialogue with the universe itself.”

What is the quantum world?

The quantum world is not bound by the same laws as the actual visible and tangible world we see around us. In this visible world, the nature of things is an entropic one; meaning that all things proceed naturally from a state of order to one of disorder. Meaning, in normal language, that all things, including people, age, die and decay. Buildings crumble, metals corrode, landscapes erode.

But for the quantum particle it’s different. It doesn’t go in a logical direction of order to disorder. It tries everything at the same time and always leaves a trace. Like, for example, when you’re buying a house, you look at a few, then pick one and move in. That’s not how the quantum particle would do it. It would move into all of them, trying each simultaneously. All the neighbours in the different neighbourhoods would remember this particle that moved in next door. When it would finally decide on the house it wanted, all its other selves would leave the other houses but all the neighbours in the different neighbourhoods would still remember the particle that lived next door – that’s what leaving a trace means.

It’s all quite magical, but it would seem that we all contain that magic within us as ultimately we are composed of the same quantum particles that display these very unusual characteristics. Not only are physicists discovering that the more they study the quantum universe the more mysterious it becomes, but also that human consciousness has a direct effect on whatever experiments are carried out regardless of where the conscious observers (i.e. the people carrying out and analysing the experiments) are located.

A quantum physics book has far more in common nowadays with ancient spiritual texts than it has with standard scientific literature.  All the great masters had a far more profound understanding of how this universe works, an understanding that the world of physics is now beginning to rediscover.

But what does this mean for us? How does it play out in our daily lives? Well if we look at consciousness as an expression of quantum forces it means that, as conscious beings, we each contain an exquisitely sensitive creative force that has unlimited power to shape the reality that we identify as our lives and indeed the world around us. It also means that on this level everything is interconnected and instantaneous regardless of time, distance or location.

Call it God or the divine or universal consciousness, this connecting and creating force exists and in human terms it is something that is experienced or felt rather than known through mental logic or theory.

This is why all the spiritual masters place such emphasis on being conscious. In spiritual terms to be conscious is not so much to do with mental activity, rather it is a connection within that flows, balances and connects with a feeling state that is aware of and open to a communication with life itself. It is a flow of love, a recognition that we are all one and an understanding that everything we do affects the whole. Being present to consciousness is to live in love.

Likewise to be unconscious is not to be asleep; it is to be unaware. In the unconscious state emotions leak out in all directions, affecting and impacting on anyone, including our own selves, who may be at the receiving end of our lack of clarity. It is the path of absence, the path of fear. It sets the one as ‘an other’, apart from and in competition with the whole. it is a ‘peaceless’ state – as out of balance with its own self as the raindrop that claims to have no connection whatsoever with the ocean.

Physical life goes with the physical laws but consciousness,  like a quantum particle, is always striving for the stable position, always striving to be at peace with the whole. Two realities, two worlds – one which can be seen and touched, and the other which can only be felt.

The feeling within is the most powerful as it is how we truly come to know ourselves. Something within us allows an inner evolution to become possible. Something within us pushes for growth; something within us broke free of the order to disorder cycle. Something within us allows a physical body to feel an intangible realm. When we get in touch with that feeling within we have access to such a creative force that suddenly all doors open and anything becomes possible. It’s not as simple as focusing the mind on a desired outcome, it requires the focus of the entire being and a heartfelt committment to walk a path of love and trust.

The real war on this planet has been between those who have always known this and those who want to keep this power suppressed. In essence the path of fear versus the path of love. We are at a point now of such growing awareness that maybe now is the time that we can begin to end this war.

The Beauty in Crop Circles

Has our diet of TV, CGi effects and gloomy news stories turned us into the most jaded people ever to inhabit planet earth? I ask because it just stuck me this summer that not once has any news paper or TV news station led with a story focusing on the amazing complexity and beauty of crop circles which appear with regularity all around the globe.

Why do we roll our eyes and say “Oh crop circles!” in a dismissive way? Why do we accept the party line and just swallow the explanations that say they are all hoaxes?  Well who is doing the hoaxing? Why do they do it? How do they complete such magnificent works so quickly, in the dark, unseen and unnoticed by anyone?

And if they are all not being made by what I would call ‘nature artists’, then who else might be creating them and what might they be trying to communicate?

The people who scoff the ‘alien’ hypotheses usually do so by commenting that it seems ridiculous for another race to communicate with us through fields of corn. Maybe that’s not so ridiculous. If you were a member of an alien race observing this world who would you communicate with? What government would you choose? Would you trust any government? Would you want to get to the people, but in a gentle way that doesn’t cause mass panic or interference in world affairs? Would you decide to let the idea that we might not be all alone out here on this little planet seep in gently, knowing that it might take years for people to really start to understand what the circles might be trying to say? Would you use nature to show that the diversity and natural beauty of this planet is the only resource that has value?

And if they are all man-made creations, does that stop them from being amazing works of symbolic and artistic wonder? Can we not still wonder at the precision of the artwork, the gentleness that rarely breaks a stalk, the speed with which they appear, and the brilliance of the artists who manage to come and go without ever being caught by anyone?

But there are even more mind expanding hypotheses! They may be a group consciousness phenomena created by a newly discovered ability of DNA to emit electromagetic waves that can communicate data that we have yet to fully understand.According to this article by Bradley York Bartholomew:

“Fascinating new discoveries by Russian molecular biologists have revealed that DNA has a mysterious resonance that has been termed the Phantom-DNA Effect.  In addition these Russian researchers have found that DNA reacts to voice activated laser light when it is set at the specific frequency of the DNA itself.  Using these methods it is possible not only to change the information patterns in the DNA, but it is also possible to communicate with the DNA. It seems that there is a divine intelligence in the DNA that is capable of resonating with the natural frequency of the earth in order to create crop circles.”

He has written an interesting article outling his theory in which he says:

“The findings of the molecular biologists Dr Pjotr P. Garjajev and Dr. Vladimir Poponin of the Russian Academy of Science concerning the ‘Phantom-DNA Effect’ have a radical connection with the formation of crop circles in the United Kingdom and throughout the world in recent times.  According to these scientists the DNA is emitting electromagnetic waves that continue to manifest even after the DNA sample has been removed from the experiment.  Hence the name ‘Phantom-DNA Effect’.  The genetic procedures being adopted by these scientists have been commented on and explained by Grazyna Fosar and Franz Bludorf in their book Vernetzte Intelligenz (1), who have put forward the theory that self-radiating balls of light often seen in the sky and mistaken for extra-terrestrial visitors are in fact a group consciousness phenomenon brought about by hypercommunication within the DNA.  This theory by Fosar and Bludorf can also explain the formation of crop circles which are also commonly attributed to extra-terrestrial visitors.  In addition it will be shown that the precise technology being adopted by the aforesaid scientists in Moscow represents a new energy source, previously unknown to mankind, that is capable also of creating crop circles.” Full article

Could he be right? I don’t know, but isn’t time we all stopped being so cynical and just let a little wonder and speculation back into our lives…

V – November 2009 is the month for all things alien

The remake of V begins this week. The following weeks see the release of The Fourth Kind, an alien abduction movie and 2012, a doomsday disaster movie inspired by Mayan cosmology. All coincidence or an attempt to influence the mass consciousness? What do you think?

We’ll review them and comment here as we see them. In the meantime here’s a V clip to whet your appetite!

Gobekli Tepe – 11,000 year old site

Six miles from Urfa, an ancient city in southeastern Turkey, Klaus Schmidt has made one of the most startling archaeological discoveries of our time: massive carved stones about 11,000 years old, crafted and arranged by prehistoric people who had not yet developed metal tools or even pottery. The megaliths predate Stonehenge by some 6,000 years. The place is called Gobekli Tepe, and Schmidt, a German archaeologist who has been working here more than a decade, is convinced it’s the site of the world’s oldest temple.

Gobekli Tepe was first examined—and dismissed—by University of Chicago and Istanbul University anthropologists in the 1960s. As part of a sweeping survey of the region, they visited the hill, saw some broken slabs of limestone and assumed the mound was nothing more than an abandoned medieval cemetery. In 1994, Schmidt was working on his own survey of prehistoric sites in the region. After reading a brief mention of the stone-littered hilltop in the University of Chicago researchers’ report, he decided to go there himself. From the moment he first saw it, he knew the place was extraordinary.

Unlike the stark plateaus nearby, Gobekli Tepe (the name means “belly hill” in Turkish) has a gently rounded top that rises 50 feet above the surrounding landscape. To Schmidt’s eye, the shape stood out. “Only man could have created something like this,” he says. “It was clear right away this was a gigantic Stone Age site.” The broken pieces of limestone that earlier surveyors had mistaken for gravestones suddenly took on a different meaning.

Schmidt returned a year later with five colleagues and they uncovered the first megaliths, a few buried so close to the surface they were scarred by plows. As the archaeologists dug deeper, they unearthed pillars arranged in circles. Schmidt’s team, however, found none of the telltale signs of a settlement: no cooking hearths, houses or trash pits, and none of the clay fertility figurines that litter nearby sites of about the same age. The archaeologists did find evidence of tool use, including stone hammers and blades. And because those artifacts closely resemble others from nearby sites previously carbon-dated to about 9000 B.C., Schmidt and co-workers estimate that Gobekli Tepe’s stone structures are the same age. Limited carbon dating undertaken by Schmidt at the site confirms this assessment.

Today, Schmidt oversees a team of more than a dozen German archaeologists, 50 local laborers and a steady stream of enthusiastic students. He typically excavates at the site for two months in the spring and two in the fall. (Summer temperatures reach 115 degrees, too hot to dig; in the winter the area is deluged by rain.) In 1995, he bought a traditional Ottoman house with a courtyard in Urfa, a city of nearly a half-million people, to use as a base of operations.

Dream the Earth Happy – Positive Plan to Change the World!

Barcroft Media - Michael Nolan Austfonna icecap in Norway on July 16.

This photograph was taken by Marine photographer and environmental lecturer Michael Nolan on July 16 2009, while on an annual voyage to observe the largest icecap in Norway – Austfonna. According to a report in the Telegraph newspaper, Nolan said the image looked ‘just like mother nature in tears, as if she was crying about our inability to reduce global warming”.

He went on to say: “The icescape changes every year I visit. Every summer the route has less ice as the polar cap retreats. On this trip I was struck myself by the amazing image of a woman’s face, a motherly face, crying. Totally natural but very animated because of the amount of melt water running off.

“This is how one would imagine mother nature would express her sentiments about our inability to reduce global warming. It seemed an obvious place for her to appear, on the front of a retreating ice shelf, crying.”

(For the full article see http://www.telegraph.co.uk

This image brings up two interesting concepts. The first is Pareidolia, a psychological phenomenon involving a vague and random stimulus (often an image or sound) being perceived as significant. According to wikipedia “Carl Sagan hypothesized that as a survival technique, human beings are “hard-wired” from birth to identify the human face. This allows people to use only minimal details to recognize faces from a distance and in poor visibility but can also lead them to interpret random images or patterns of light and shade as being faces.

A 2009 magnetoencephalography study backs up his theory as it found that “face perception evoked by face-like objects is a relatively early process, and not a late cognitive reinterpretation phenomenon.”

The second concept is that of thoughts influencing reality.  Watch this video:

So if we are hard-wired to ‘humanise’ patterns and taking into account that our thoughts affect matter, is it possible that our collective worry about the planet created a pattern that we were all wired to recognise?

I believe it is very possible and therefore very important that we start changing our thoughts and putting our focus on positive outcomes.  If together we start imagining a healthy, recovered, happy planet then we can dream our chosen happy timeline into existence. We could do this in an instant if we all put the work into noticing how we think, and into noticing how much we are fed negative images, information and scenarios.

Whether we are being deliberately manipulated, or whether we are doing it because we don’t realise how dangerous it is to feed on negative thoughtforms, isn’t really the issue as neither option can affect us if we change how we think. So the challenge?

  • Stop feeding your mind with negative outcomes. That means be very discerning about watching news or reading newspapers. Either stop or at least be aware that for every bad story going on there are hundreds of good things happening that are never reported.
  • Find a positive angle in everything that you hear and actively look for positive stories..
  • Use vision boards and positive words to dream yourself happy and to include beautiful earth images so that a healthy, happy planet is always included in what you imagine.
  • Connect with animals and nature.
  • Pass on positive stories to others. Don’t pass on bad news, scare stories or engage in pessimistic conversations.
  • If your thoughts are stressing you, depressing you or making you sad then ask for help. There are hundreds of wonderful teachers and methods out there that can help so have a look around and work with whatever system appeals to you.
  • Find a meditation practise that works for you. Learning to be with yourself in silence opens you to the much bigger you that lives within you…
  • Don’t listen to people who say that it’s so hard to become enlightened and all that sort of separatist thinking. That’s just another negative thoughtform disguised as a philosophy. A happy human being at peace with themselves and the world around them, doing his or her very best to consciously create a happier, healthier world is an enlightened human being. That’s all. It’s no big mystery and if you’re not feeling like that right in this moment you’re only a thought away from it!

We all need to give ourselves a fair chance. Keep in mind that when we do something over and over again we get good at it. Learning to think in a positive, creative way is something that will become very natural and easy when we keep practising. Gradually the slips back into fear and gloom will lessen and eventually we’ll just see a positive angle in everything.  Then we’ll reach tipping point and the move towards positive, peaceful outcomes will become unstoppable.

Florence Scovel Shinn – True Laws of Manifestation

The Writings of Florence Scovel Shinn.

Florence Scovel Shinn was acknowledged by Louise Hay as an early influence. Scovel Shinn was so far ahead of her time that it is only now that we are getting to the point of being able to understand and apply what she taught. The Secret may talk of manifestation but it is talk without any real understanding of the process of true manifestation. Florence Scovel Shinn had a profound understanding and her method works. The downside is that you have to live what you say not just mouth it! That of course is why we love her.

To read more about Florence Scovel Shinn go to http://florencescovelshinn.wwwhubs.com

A sample of Florence’s writing follows taken from http://self-improvement-ebooks.com/books/wand.php

1: Your Word is Your Wand

Man’s word is his wand filled with magic and power!

Jesus Christ emphasized the power of the word; “By thy words thou shalt be justified and by thy words thou shalt be condemned,” and “death and life are in the power of the tongue.”

So man has power to change an unhappy condition by waving over it the wand of his word.

In the place of sorrow appears joy, in the place of sickness appears health, in the place of lack appears plenty.

For example: A woman came for a treatment for prosperity. She possessed just two dollars in the world.

I said: “We bless the two dollars and know that you have the magic purse of the Spirit; it can never be depleted; as money goes out, immediately money comes in, undergrace in perfect ways.

I see it always crammed, jammed with money: Yellow bills, green bills, pink checks, blue checks, white checks, gold, silver and currency. I see it bulging with abundance!”

She replied: “I feel my bag heavy with money,” and was so filled with faith that she gave me one of her dollars as a love offering. I did not dare refuse it and see lack for her, as it was important that I hold the picture of plenty.

Shortly aferwards she was made a gift of six thousand dollars. Fearless faith and the spoken word brought it to pass.

The affirmation of the magic purse is very powerful, as it brings a vivid picture to the mind. It is impossible not to see your purse or wallet filled with money when using the words, “crammed, jammed.”

The imaging faculty is the creative faculty and it is important to choose words which bring a flash of the fulfillment of the demand.

Never force a picture by visualizing; let the Divine Idea flash into your conscious mind; then the student is working according to the Divine Design.

Jesus Christ said: “Ye shall know the Truth and the Truth shall make you free.”

2: Success

There are certain words or pictures which impress the subconscious mind.

For example: A man called asking me to speak the word for his right work.

I gave him the statement: “Behold I have set before thee the open door of destiny and no man shall shut it!”

It didn’t seem to make much impression, so I was inspired to add: “And no man shall shut it for it is nailed back!”

The man was electrified and went out walking on air. Within a few weeks he was called to a distant city to fill a wonderful position which came about in a miraculous way.

AFFIRMATIONS

The decks are now cleared for Divine Action and my own comes to me under grace in a magical way.

I now let go of worn-out conditions and worn-out things. Divine order is established in my mind, body and affairs. “Behold, I make all things new.”

My seeming impossible good now comes to pass, the unexpected now happens.

3: Prosperity

Man comes into the world financed by God, with all that he desires or requires already on his pathway.

This supply is released through faith and the Spoken Word.

“If thou canst believe, all things are possible.”

For example: A woman came to me one day to tell me of her experience in using an affirmation she had read in my book, “The Game of Life and How to Play It.”

She was without experience but desired a good position on the stage. She took the affirmation: “Infinite Spirit, open the way for my great abundance. I am an irresistible magnet for all that belongs to me by Divine Right.”

She was given a very important part in a successful opera.

She said: “It was a miracle, due to the affirmation, which I repeated hundreds of times.”

AFFIRMATIONS

I now draw from the abundance of the spheres my immediate and endless supply.
All Channels are free!
All Doors are open!

I now release the gold-mine within me. I am linked with an endless golden stream of prosperity which comes to me under grace in perfect ways.

Goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life and I shall dwell in the house of abundance forever.

My God is a God of plenty and I now receive all that I desire or require, and more.

All that is mine by Divine Right is now released and reaches me in great avalanches of abundance, under grace in miraculous ways.

My supply is endless, inexhaustible and immediate and comes to me under grace in perfect ways.

4: Happiness

In that wonderful moving picture, “The Thief of Bagdad,” we were told in letters of light that happiness must be earned!

It is earned through perfect control of the emotional nature.

There can be no happiness where there is fear, apprehension or dread. With perfect faith in God comes a feeling of security and happiness.

When man knows that there is an invincible power that protects him and all that he loves, and brings to him every righteous desire of the heart, he relaxes all nervous tension and is happy and satisfied.

He is undisturbed by adverse appearances, knowing that Infinite Intelligence is protecting his interests and utilizing every situation to bring his good to pass.

“I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in a desert.”

Uneasy lies the head that wears a frown. Anger, resentment, ill-will, jealousy and revenge rob man of his happiness and bring sickness, failure and poverty in their wake.

Resentment has ruined more homes than drink and killed more people than war.

AFFIRMATIONS

I am now deluged with the happiness that was planned for me in the Beginning. My barns are full, my cup flows over with joy.

My endless good now comes to me in endless ways.

I have a wonderful joy in a wonderful way, and my wonderful joy has come to stay.

Happy surprises come to me each day. “I look with wonder at that which is before me.”

I walk boldly up to the lion on my pathway and find it is a friendly airedale.

My hearts desire is a perfect idea in Divine Mine, incorruptible and indestructible, and now comes to pass, under grace in a magical way.

5: Love

With love usually comes terrific fear. Nearly every women comes into the world with a mythical woman in the back of her mind who is to rob her of her love.

She has been called “the other woman.” Of course it comes from woman’s belief in duality. So long as she visualizes interference, it will come.

It is usually very difficult for a woman to see herself loved by the man she loves, so these affirmations are to impress the truth of the situation upon her subconscious mind, for in reality there is only oneness.

AFFIRMATIONS

As I am one with God, the Undivided One, I am one with my undivided love and undivided happiness.

The light of the Christ within now wipes out all fear, doubt, anger and resentment. God’s love pours through me, an irresistible magnetic current. I see only perfection and draw to me my own.

Divine Love, through me, now dissolves all seeming obstacles and makes clear, easy and successful my way.

I love everyone and everyone loves me. My apparent enemy becomes my friend, a golden link in the chain of my good.

I am at peace with myself and with the whole world. I love everyone and everyone loves me.
The flood gates of my good now open.

6: Marriage

Unless marriage is built upon the rock of oneness it cannot stand; “Two Souls with but a single thought, two hearts that beat as one.”

The poet understood this, for unless man and wife are living the same thoughts (or living in the same thought world), they must inevitably drift apart.

Thought is a tremendous vibratory force and man is drawn to his thought creations.

For example: A man and woman married and were apparently happy. The man became successful and his tastes improved, but the wife still lived in a limited consciousness.

Whenever the man bought anything he went to the best shops and selected what he needed regardless of price.

Whenever the wife went out she haunted the Five and Ten Cent Stores.

He was living (in thought), on Fifth Avenue and her thought world was on Third Avenue.

Eventually the break and separation came.

AFFIRMATION

I give thanks that the marriage made in heaven is now made manifest upon earth. “The twain shall be made one” now and for all eternity.

7: Forgiveness

AFFIRMATIONS

I forgive everyone and everyone forgives me. The gates swing open for my good.

I call on the law of forgiveness. I am free from mistakes and the consequences of mistakes. I am under grace and not under karmic law.

Though my mistakes be as scarlet, I shall be washed whiter than snow.

What didn’t happen in the Kingdom never happened anywhere.

8: Words of Wisdom

AFFIRMATIONS

Faith without nerve is dead.

There is never a slip ‘twixt the right cup and right lip.

Never look or you’d never leap.

God works in unexpected places, through unexpected people, at unexpected times, His wonders to perform.

Power moves but is never moved.

Loving your neighbor means not to limit your neighbor in word, thought or deed.

“Never argue with a hunch.”

Christopher Columbus followed a hunch.

The Kingdom of Heaven is the realm of perfect ideas.

9: Faith

Hope looks forward, Faith knows it has already received and acts accordingly.

In my classes I often emphasize the importance of digging ditches (or preparing for the thing asked for) which shows active faith and brings the demonstration to pass.

A man in my class, whom I called “the life of the party,” because he always tried to find a question I couldn’t answer, but he never succeeded, asked: “Why is it then, a lot of women who prepare Hope Chests never get married?” I replied: “Because it is a Hope Chest and not a Faith Chest.”

The prospective bride also violates law in telling others about it. Her friends come in and sit on the Hope Chest and either doubt or hope she’ll never succeed.

“Pray to thy Father which is in secret, and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.”

AFFIRMATIONS

Adverse appearances work for my good, for God utilizes every person and every situation to bring to me my heart’s desire. “Hindrances are friendly” and obstacles spring boards! I now jump into my good!

As I am one with the Undivided One, I am one with my undivided good.

As the needle in the compass is true to the north, what is rightfully mine is true to me. I am the North!

I am now linked by an invisible, unbreakable magnetic cord with all that belongs to me by Divine Right!

Thy Kingdom is come, Thy will is done in me and my affairs.

10: Loss

If man loses anything it shows there is a belief of loss in his subconscious mind. As he erases this false belief, the article, or its equivalent will appear on the external.

For example: A woman lost a silver pencil in a theatre. she made every effort to find it but it was not returned.

She denied loss, taking the affirmation: “I deny loss, there is no loss in Divine Mind therefore I cannot lose that pencil. I will receive it or its equivalent.”

Several weeks elapsed. One day she was with a friend who wore about her neck on a cord, a beautiful gold pencil, who turned to her and said: “Do you want this pencil? I paid fifty dollars for it at Tiffany’s.”

“The woman was aghast, and replied (almost forgetting to thank her friend) “Oh! God aren’t you wonderful! The silver pencil wasn’t good enough for me!”

Man can only lose what doesn’t belong to him by Divine Right, or isn’t good enough for him.

AFFIRMATION
There is no loss in Divine Mind, therefore, I cannot lose anything that is rightfully mine.

Infinite Intelligence is never too late! Infinite Intelligence knows the way of recovery.

There is no loss in Divine Mind, therefore, I cannot lose anything that is rightfully mine. It will be restored or I will receive its equivalent.

11: Debt

If a man is in debt or people owe him money, it shows that a belief of debt is in his subconscious mind.

This belief must be neutralized in order to change conditions.

For example: A woman came to me saying a man had owed her a thousand dollars for years which she could not compel him to pay.

I said: “You must work on yourself, not the man,” and gave her this statement: “I deny debt, there is no debt in Divine Mind, no man owes me anything, all is squared. I send man that man love and forgiveness.”

In a few weeks she received a letter from him saying he intended to send the money and in about a month came the thousand dollars.

If a student owes money, change the statement: “There is no debt in Divine Mind, therefore, I owe no man anything, all is squared.

All of my obligations are now wiped out, under grace in a perfect way.”

AFFIRMATIONS

I deny debt, there is no debt in Divine Mind, therefore, I owe no man anything. All obligations are now wiped out under grace in a miraculous way.

I deny debt, there is no debt in Divine Mind, no man owes me anything, all is squared. I send forth love and forgiveness.

12: Sales

A woman who lived in a country town wished to sell her house and furniture. It was in the winter with snow so deep it was almost impossible for cars or wagons to reach her door.

As she had asked God to sell her furniture to the right person for the right price she was unmindful of appearances.

She polished the furniture, pushed it into the middle of the room and prepared to sell it.

She said: “I never looked out of the window at the blizzard, I simply trusted God’s promises.”

In miraculous ways people drove up and all the furniture was sold, and the house also, without paying any commission to an agent.

Faith never looks out of the window at the blizzard, it simply prepares for the blessing asked for.

AFFIRMATION

I give thanks that this article (or property) is now sold to the right person or persons for the right price, giving perfect satisfaction.

13: Interviews

AFFIRMATIONS

There is no competition on the Spiritual plane. What is mine is given me, under grace.

I am identified in love with the Spirit of this person (or persons). God protects my interest and the Divine Idea now comes out of this situation.

14: Guidance

Always on man’s pathway is his message or his lead.

For example: A woman was much troubled over an unhappy situation. She thought to herself, “Will it ever clear up?”

Her maid was standing near and commenced to tell her of her experiences. The woman was too worried to be interested but listened patiently. The maid was saying: “I worked in a hotel once where there was a very amusing gardener, he always said such funny things. It had been raining for three days and I said to him: ‘Do you think it will ever clear up?’ And he replied, ‘My God, doesn’t it always clear up?'”

The woman was amazed! It was the answer to her thoughts. She said reverently, “Yes, with my God it always clears up!” Soon after, her problem did clear up in an unexpected way.

AFFIRMATIONS

Infinite Spirit, give me wisdom to make the most of my opportunities. Never let me miss a trick.

I am always under direct inspiration. I know just what to do and give instant obedience to my intuitive leads.

My angel of destiny goes before me, keeping me in the Way.

All power is given unto me to be meek and lowly of heart. I am willing to come last, therefore, I come first.

I now place my personal will upon the altar. Your will, not my will; Your way not my way; Your time not my time — and in the twinkling of an eye it is done!

There are no mysteries in the Kingdom. Whatever I should know will now be revealed to me, under grace.

I am a perfect non-resistant instrument for God to work through, and His perfect plan for me now comes to pass in a magic way.

15: Protection

AFFIRMATIONS

I am surrounded by the White Light of the Christ, through which nothing negative can penetrate.

I walk in the Light of the Christ and my fear giants dwindle into nothingness. There is nothing to oppose my good.

16: Memory

AFFIRMATION

There is no loss of memory in Divine Mind, therefore, I recollect everything I should remember and I forget all that is not for my good.

17: The Divine Design

There is a Divine Design for each man!

Just as the perfect picture of the oak is in the acorn, the divine pattern of his life is in the superconscious mind of man.

In the Divine Design there is no limitation, only health, wealth, love and perfect self-expression.

So on man’s pathway there is always a Divine Selection. Each day he must live according to the Divine Plane or have unhappy reactions.

For example: A woman moved into a new apartment which she had almost furnished, when the thought came to her: “On that side of the room should stand a Chinese cabinet!

Not long after, she was walking by an antique shop. She glanced in and there stood a magnificent Chinese cabinet about eight feet high, elaborately carved.

She entered and asked the price. The salesman said it was worth a thousand dollars but the woman who owned it was willing to take less. The man added: “What will you offer for it?” The woman paused and the price “Two hundred dollars” came into her mind, so she answered: “Two hundred dollars.” The man said he would let her know if the offer was satisfactory.

She did not want to cheat anyone or get anything which was not rightfully hers, so going home she said repeatedly: “If it’s mine I can’t lose it and if it isn’t mine, I don’t want it.” It was a snowy day and she said she emphasized her words by kicking the snow from right to left, clearing a pathway to her apartment.

Several days elapsed when she was notified that the woman was willing to sell the cabinet for two hundred dollars.

There is a supply for every demand, from Chinese cabinets to millions of dollars.

AFFIRMATIONS

I let go of everything not divinely designed for me, and the perfect plan of my life now comes to pass.

What is mine by Divine Right can never be taken from me. God’s perfect plan for me is built upon a rock.

I follow the magic path of intuition and find myself in my Promised Land, under grace.

My mind, body and affairs are now molded according to the Divine Pattern within.

18: Health

When man is harmonious and happy he is healthy! All sickness comes from violation of Spiritual Law.

Jesus Christ said: “Be though healed, your sins are forgiven.”

Resentment, ill-will, hate, fear, etc., etc., tear down the cells of the body and poison the blood.

Accidents, old age and death itself, come from holding wrong mental pictures.

When man sees himself as God sees him, he will become a radiant being, timeless, birthless and deathless, for “God made man in His likeness and His image.”

AFFIRMATIONS

I deny fatigue, for there is nothing to tire me. I live in the Kingdom of eternal joy and absorbing interests. My body is “the body electric,” timeless and tireless, birthless and deathless.

Time and space are obliterated! I live in the wonderful now, birthless and deathless! I am one the The One!

19: Animals

(Dog: for example)

AFFIRMATIONS

I deny any appearance of disorder. This dog is a perfect idea in Divine Mind and now expresses God’s perfect Idea of a perfect dog.

Infinite Intelligence illumines and directs this animal. It is a perfect idea in Divine Mind and is always in its right place.

20: The Elements

Man is made in God’s likeness and image (Imagination) and is given power and dominion over all created things.

He has the power to “rebuke the winds and the waves,” check floods or bring rain when it is needed.

There is a tribe of American Indians who live in the desert country and depend on the power of prayer only, to bring rain to water their crops.

They have a rain dance, which is a form of prayer, but no chief is allowed to take part who has any fear.

They give exhibitions of courage before they are admitted to the ceremonies.

A woman, who was an eye-witness, told me that out of a blue sky came a deluge of rain; the sun still shining.

AFFIRMATIONS

Fire:

Fire is man’s friend and is always in its right place doing its right work.

Drought:

There is no drought in Divine Mind. I give thanks for the right amount of rain to nourish these crops or garden. I see clearly this gentle downpour and the manifestation is now.

Storms:

The Christ within now rebukes the winds and the waves and there comes a great calm. I see clearly peace established on land and sea.

21: Journey

AFFIRMATION

I give thanks for the Divinely planned journey under Divinely planned conditions with the Divinely planned supply.

22: Miscellaneous

The thing you dislike or hate will surely come upon you, for when man hates, he makes a vivid picture in the subconscious mind and it objectifies.

The only way to erase these pictures is through non-resistance.

For example: A woman was interested in a man who told her repeatedly of his charming women cousins.

She was jealous and resentful and he passed out of her life.

Later on she met another man to whom she was much attracted. In the course of their conversation he mentioned some women cousins he was very fond of.

She resented it, then laughed, for here were her old friends “the cousins” back again.

This time she tried non-resistance. She blessed all the cousins in the Universe and sent them good-will, for she knew if she didn’t, every man she met would be stocked up with women relations.

It was successfull for she never heard cousins mentioned again.

This is the reason so many people have unhappy experiences repeated in their lives.

AFFIRMATIONS

God is incapable of separation or division; therefore, my good is incapable of separation or division. I am one with my undivided good.
All that is mine by Divine Right is now released and reaches me in a perfect way under Grace.

God’s work is finished now and must manifest.

There is no there —there is only here.

Reveal to me the way, let me see clearly the blessing which Thou hast given me.

Let Thy blessed will be done in me this day.

Hunches are my hounds of Heaven —they lead me in the perfect way.

I serve only faith and my unlimited abundance is made manifest.

I am undisturbed by appearances.  I trust in God — and He now brings to me the desires of my heart.

Hello world!

“Is peace a manifestation of something that happens inside a human being or is peace something on the outside only? This is where we have to slow down, because the definitions are abundant but what is peace? Where does the desire for peace come from? Was it that somebody sat down one day and said “Good idea to have peace in this world?” Or is peace innate and the desire for peace innate to every single human being on the face of this earth? This question in my opinion is the pivotal question.

As we exist in this world, as we function in this world, what really exists? There are issues.  Everybody is surrounded by issues. Good issues, bad issues, good news, bad news. “You have been promoted; you have been fired.” “You have just bought a new car; you have just lost a new car.” Today, you are young. And you look—the same self will look at the mirror and say, “Today, you are old.” Remember this. It was you—the same self—looked in the mirror and said, “I am so young.” The same self looked in the mirror and said, “I look good.” The same self is going to look in the mirror and proclaim, “I’m getting old.” Same self is going to look in the mirror and say, “I used to be young.” Same mirror. Mirror is mirror. Same self. So, are you not curious, what is this self? Are you not curious to understand your true nature? Are you not curious to understand what is this realm of existence? People talk about liberation, and I wonder. What liberation? This body comes from dust. This is what it came from. These simple elements. And it’ll go back to these elements and it’ll be re-used again and again and again. And again, and again, and again. And then they go, “But the soul. Your essence will come back.” My essence cannot be separated from the essence of the infinite. It’s one and the same. This is where in me resides the infinite. This body is finite, and what lives inside this finite shell is infinite.”  (Maharaji)

Noetic technically refers to a sense of “inner knowing” and the world of inner consciousness that opens when we access the subtle senses beyond the familiar senses of touch, taste, smell, sight and hearing.  This digest is concerned with the part of us that contains the infinite and the infinite awareness that it brings. We aim to provide a window to all the places on the net that enrich this inner knowing and which can help bring all of us closer to the experience of how amazing and beautiful a human being can be.

To quote Maharaji again: “The journey is the destination.” As human beings we are on an incredible journey. Do we realise what we have been given? Do we realise how rare and amazing we are? Are we aware that by being fully conscious in the world of knowing that we can be in heaven while we are alive? And most important of all, it’s very simple. We try to complicate everything to feed our intellect, but actually the intellect is just a tool to get by in life.  It’s just the game we have to play to survive.

The mind was never designed to feel peace. Peace can only be felt in the heart and thankfully the process of connecting with the heart is very simple. However, telling that to the intellect is not so simple! Hopefully this site will link you to many ways of overriding the intellect and linking directly with the heart!
