Now that we’ve learned a little about OBEs, let’s read a couple OBE-related experiences. The website these stories come from, the Out of Body Experience Research Foundation, contains a large collection of interesting and unique stories that shed light on all kinds of dream-related phenomena.
You won’t learn nearly as much about OBEs by researching the facts as you will by reading the stories of people who’ve experienced them.
We’ll hear from Don J. first, who witnessed something strange while practicing chi gong. While his isn’t necessarily an out-of-body experience, it’s similar in that he saw something in his mind’s eye that was more vivid than anything he could’ve imagined or dreamt.

In the 1950s and ’60s, hallucinogenic drugs like psilocybin, which is found naturally in certain mushrooms, were often used in U.S. biomedical research and in psychotherapy practices. In 1966, however, the U.S. government declared the drugs illegal, halting American research into their potential therapeutic benefits.
But recent years have seen the the conversation stirred up in a less taboo way once again, with American researchers arguing that the prohibition is preventing them from discovering and taking advantage of treatments for psychiatric problems like depression, addiction, and post-traumatic stress disorder.
Two recently published studies revealed that a single moderate-to-large dose of psilocybin has the ability to provide significant and long-lasting relief from overwhelming distress. In fact, of 29 cancer patients who received psilocybin in a trial conducted at New York University’s Langone Medical Center, 20 rated it as “among the most meaningful” events of their life.

The Pearl Harbor false flag operation of December 7th, 1941 which provided the excuse for the US to enter World War 2 is about to be celebrated once again. This Wednesday (December 7th, 2016) will be the Pearl Harbor 75th Anniversary event.
The horrific event was yet another in a long long line of false flag operations that have been carried out by unscrupulous criminals (our misleaders) over the years. Just as with the 9/11 false flag attack, around 3000 American lives were sacrificed so that the US Government had the pretext they needed to go to war. As the 75th anniversary approaches, it is appropriate to cast our gaze back in time and set the record straight on the Pearl Harbor false flag op in the hope that this information will spread far and wide, and prevent future leaders from using this hackneyed tactic to trick people into submission and achieve their dark political and geopolitical goals.

“The law of attraction is infallible, and every single person is getting what they are asking for, even though most of the time each person is not aware that they are asking for what they don’t want. There is such absolute beauty in the law, which is so responsive and giving in every single moment so that we can experience our lives.
The law never changes — we must learn how to live in harmony with the law. That is the greatest task for every single human being.” ~ Rhonda Byrne (The Secret Daily Teachings)
You got to love how the ‘law’ works, right? No? Are you pulling your hair out at some of the things you’re manifesting?

Yesterday I was putting my video blog together. It’s usually a wee bit of a task and I’m prepared for that. I spent hours writing the forward blog and then got to editing and splicing the footage I’d filmed the day before. Continue reading The Greatest Task That Lies Before the Awakened Human Being

Trying to answer the “big questions” of life and grappling with spiritual matters are things everyone typically goes through at some point. An existential crisis deals with questions of our existence – Why am I here? What is my purpose in life? Are we alone? Is there a God? What happens when you die? Are my loved ones okay in the afterlife?
However, not only has society made it incredibly easy and tempting to avoid that inner dialogue for your entire life – just passing the time away with mindless distractions, medications and consumerism – but, it actually hammers you back into line if you start to question the matrix.

Be honest. Have you ever gone on a strict diet or worked out like crazy just to fit into a particular outfit for a special occasion such as a wedding or school reunion?
How about this one … have you ever found yourself suddenly scrambling to clean your house when you learned visitors were coming?
You may be surprised to learn that both of these are examples of personal standards.
Standards are basically a set of unspoken rules we live by and are reflected in the way we treat ourselves and others, as well as the way in which we expect to be treated. Continue reading The Reality We Must Accept Before We Can Improve Our Life

I was coming out of Trader Joe’s this morning and putting the cart back in the parking lot area when an elderly lady was struggling to take one out. She could barely keep herself up. I took mine to her and said, “Here, ma’am, you can have mine.” I helped her get her empty bags and belongings in it. She looked up at me with such a shocking expression.
“Thank you,” she kindly said. To which I said, “No problem.”
“These days, at 85, I am invisible.” Tears formed in her eyes. And, I thought to myself, “It’s only a cart, not a million dollars…!” I told her that she wasn’t invisible. She stood there with such gratitude that I got a bit weepy. I was taken aback. Are we, as a society, that self-absorbed that we don’t see the joy in giving a simple supermarket cart to an elderly person? Well, of course, that moment opened up conversation for sweet Margaret and I. We stood there sharing what kindness is in this world and how it’s truly missing from so many. We hugged. She rolled herself into the store and I got into my car. Then it hit me like a giant freight train. Her word, “invisible” was exactly what I needed in order to release my own truth. I was transported back to a memory that I had forgotten. Continue reading We Are the Core of Humanity

Many children seem wise beyond their years or like “old souls,” but some have said things that truly seem to hearken back to previous lives.
Parents have shared their stories via social media; many say their children have talked about tragic deaths followed by happier lives this time around.
1. When my son was 3, he told me that he really likes his new daddy, he’s really nice. My husband is his one and only daddy. I asked ‘Why is that?’
He replied: ‘My old daddy was really mean. He stabbed me in the back and I died. But I really like my new daddy, he’d never do that to me.’ Continue reading 10 Amazing Things Kids Have Said About Past Lives

We have so many blocks placed in front of us that we need to recognize and become aware of in order to heal and transform as a soul.

(ANTIMEDIA — Op-ed) On Sunday, protesters, veterans, and a global network of their allies cheered as the Army Corps of Engineers denied a final easement for the Dakota Access Pipeline, temporarily blocking the project.
Mainstream outlets from ABC, NBC, and CBS to TV behemoths CNN and MSNBC rushed to report the breaking news, many pouncing on a story they spent months ignoring.
According to an article from early September published by Fairness and Accuracy in Media (FAIR), a national media watchdog group: Continue reading Here’s Why You Can’t Trust Mainstream Media’s Reporting on the DAPL
