1- feelings Can Change Your DNA !
2- There Is a Second, Secret DNA Code Which Controls Genes
3- Cosmic Radiation & Light Changes DNA
It is surprising that such astounding discoveries haven’t made it to the forefront of the mainstream media. These discoveries could change the foundation of physics and biochemistry as we know it. There is now evidence to suggest that an intelligent force is guiding the evolution of life throughout the universe which brings us another step closer to understanding the divine mysteries of our existence within the cosmos.
If you believe that you are at the mercy of your genetic code, great news, you’re not. According to the science of epigenetics (the study of how environmental factors outside of DNA influence changes in gene expression), stem cells and even DNA can be altered through magnetic fields, heart coherence, positive mental states and intention. Top scientists around the world agree: genetic determinism is a flawed theory.
Curbing the genetic victim mentality
The DNA we are born with is not the sole determinant for our health and well-being. Stem cell biologist Bruce Lipton, Ph.D., discusses the important difference between genetic determinism and epigenetics in an interview with Super Consciousness magazine:
“The difference between these two is significant because this fundamental belief called genetic determinism literally means that our lives, which are defined as our physical, physiological and emotional behavioral traits, are controlled by the genetic code. This kind of belief system provides a visual picture of people being victims: If the genes control our life function, then our lives are being controlled by things outside of our ability to change them. This leads to victimization that the illnesses and diseases that run in families are propagated through the passing of genes associated with those attributes. Laboratory evidence shows this is not true.”
Lipton’s theory is confirmed by Carlo Ventura, M.D., Ph.D., professor and researcher at the University of Bologna in Italy. Dr. Ventura has shown through lab testing that the DNA of stem cells can be altered using magnetic field frequencies.
It’s like a time machine. You’re reprogramming somehow backward with these cells to an uncertain state in which any kind of decision is somehow possible; even the decision to become virtually any kind of cell of the organism. And just think about the tremendous potential of this discovery.
He adds that two Nobel Prize-winning scientists discovered even “nonstem adult cells can be epigenetically reprogrammed backward to a state where they can eventually give rise to neural cells, cardiac cells, skeletal muscle cells or insulin-producing cells.”
Changing DNA through intention
According to the Institute of HeartMath in Boulder Creek, California, epigenetics encompasses far more than just DNA, our environment and life experience. After two decades of study, the researchers discovered factors like love and appreciation or anxiety and anger also influence a person’s blueprint. In one experiment, select participants were able to change DNA with positive mental states.
An individual holding three DNA samples was directed to generate heart coherence – a beneficial state of mental, emotional and physical balance and harmony – with the aid of a HeartMath technique that utilizes heart breathing and intentional positive emotions. The individual succeeded, as instructed, to intentionally and simultaneously unwind two of the DNA samples to different extents and leave the third unchanged.
Control group volunteers who had low heart coherence were unable to alter the DNA.
Healthy cell expression and a quantum nutrient diet.
If we want to nourish our bodies at a cellular level (and not promote disease), the institute recommends an abundant diet of quantum nutrients. When we are stressed or negative, our biological energy reserves are diverted from the important task of regenerating and repairing the body. We can counteract this cellular starvation by focusing on genuine states of care, appreciation and love. These positive emotions enhance our energy system and feed the body, even down to the level of DNA. HeartMath calls such positive feelings “quantum nutrients.”
Here is a fast useful and simple way to help keeping your DNA and body in good shape and avoide damaging it when you feel a draining emotion such as frustration, irritation, anxiety or stress. Using 3 steps emotion changer at the onset of less intense negative emotions can keep them from escalating into something worse. This technique is especially useful after you’ve had an emotional blowup to bring yourself back into balance quickly.
You can do this technique anytime, anywhere and no one will know you’re doing it. In less than a minute, it creates positive changes in your heart rhythms, sending powerful signals to the brain that can improve how you’re feeling. Apply this one-minute technique first thing in the morning, before or during phone calls or meetings, in the middle of a difficult conversation, when you feel overwhelmed or pressed. You can also use it whenever you need more coordination, speed and fluidity in your reactions.
Step 1: Heart Focus.
Focus your attention on the area around your heart, the area in the center of your chest. If you prefer, the first couple of times you try it, place your hand over the center of your chest to help keep your attention in the heart area.
Step 2: Heart Breathing.
Breathe deeply but normally and feel as if your breath is coming in and going out through your heart area. Continue breathing with ease until you find a natural inner rhythm that feels good to you.
Step 3: Heart Feeling.
As you maintain your heart focus and heart breathing, activate a positive feeling. Recall a positive feeling, a time when you felt good inside, and try to re-experience the feeling. One of the easiest ways to generate a positive, heart-based feeling is to remember a special place you’ve been to or the love you feel for a close friend or family member or treasured pet. This is the most important step.

Scientists Finally Admit There Is a Second, Secret DNA Code Which Controls Genes
The fascinating and recent discovery of a new, second DNA code further lends credence to what metaphysical scientists have been saying for millennia — the body speaks two different languages.
Since the genetic code was deciphered in the 1960s, researchers have assumed that it was used exclusively to write information about proteins.
But biologists have suspected for years that some kind of epigenetic inheritance occurs at the cellular level. The different kinds of cells in our bodies provide an example. Skin cells and brain cells have different forms and functions, despite having exactly the same DNA.
No Such Thing As Junk DNA
The human genome is packed with at least four million gene switches that reside in bits of DNA that once were dismissed as “junk” but it turns out that so-called junk DNA plays critical roles in controlling how cells, organs and other tissues behave. The discovery, considered a major medical and scientific breakthrough, has enormous implications for human health and consciousness because many complex diseases appear to be caused by tiny changes in hundreds of gene switches.
As scientists delved into the “junk” — parts of the DNA that are not actual genes containing instructions for proteins — they discovered a complex system that controls genes. At least 80 percent of this DNA is active and needed. Another 15-17 percent has higher functions scientists are still decoding.
Recent findings in the journal Science may have big implications for how medical experts use the genomes of patients to interpret and diagnose diseases, researchers said.
The genetic code uses a 64-letter alphabet called codons. Dr Stamatoyannopoulos with co-authors were stunned to discover that some codons, which they called duons, can have two meanings. One describes how proteins are made, and the other instructs the cell on how genes are controlled.
The newfound genetic code within deoxyribonucleic acid, the hereditary material that exists in nearly every cell of the body, was written right on top of the DNA code scientists had already cracked.
Rather than concerning itself with proteins, this one instructs the cells on how genes are controlled.
Its discovery means DNA changes, or mutations that come with age or in response to vibrational changes within the DNA, may be doing more than what scientists previously thought.
“For over 40 years we have assumed that DNA changes affecting the genetic code solely impact how proteins are made,” said lead author John Stamatoyannopoulos, University of Washington associate professor of genome sciences and of medicine.
“Now we know that this basic assumption about reading the human genome missed half of the picture,” he said.
“Many DNA changes that appear to alter protein sequences may actually cause disease by disrupting gene control programs or even both mechanisms simultaneously.”
These two meanings seem to have evolved in concert with each other. The gene control instructions appear to help stabilize certain beneficial features of proteins and how they are made.
The discovery was made as part of the international collaboration of research groups known as the Encyclopedia of DNA Elements Project, or ENCODE.
DNA Responds To Frequency
The Russian biophysicist and molecular biologist Pjotr Garjajev and his colleagues explored the vibrational behavior of the DNA. The bottom line was: “Living chromosomes function just like solitonic/holographic computers using the endogenous DNA laser radiation.” This means that they managed for example to modulate certain frequency patterns onto a laser ray and with it influenced the DNA frequency and thus the genetic information itself. Since the basic structure of DNA-alkaline pairs and of language (as explained earlier) are of the same structure, no DNA decoding is necessary.
This finally and scientifically explains why affirmations, autogenous training, hypnosis and the like can have such strong effects on humans and their bodies. It is entirely normal and natural for our DNA to react to frequency. While western researchers cut single genes from the DNA strands and insert them elsewhere, the Russians enthusiastically worked on devices that can influence the cellular metabolism through suitable modulated radio and light frequencies and thus repair genetic defects.
Garjajev’s research group succeeded in proving that with this method chromosomes damaged by x-rays for example can be repaired. They even captured information patterns of a particular DNA and transmitted it onto another, thus reprogramming cells to another genome. So they successfully transformed, for example, frog embryos to salamander embryos simply by transmitting the DNA information patterns! This way the entire information was transmitted without any of the side effects or disharmonies encountered when cutting out and re-introducing single genes from the DNA. This represents an unbelievable, world-transforming revolution and sensation! All this by simply applying vibration instead of the archaic cutting-out procedure! This experiment points to the immense power of wave genetics, which obviously has a greater influence on the formation of organisms than the biochemical processes of alkaline sequences.
Study Reveals That Cosmic Radiation & Light Changes DNA
*This article is based on academic research referenced in David Wilcock’s The Source Field Investigations and his follow up book The Synchronicity Key: The Hidden Intelligence Guiding the Universe & You. I highly recommend you check out both of these books for further information.
DNA is essential to any scientific understanding of life. One strand of the double-helix holds the complete code that is needed to clone an entire organism. The process of DNA formation is one that is now up for debate, as the fundamentals of quantum physics aim to explain how DNA begins as a wave-form rather than a molecule. This new idea suggests that the universe is composed of an invisible wave-pattern complex that forms matter by the exertion of micro gravitational forces. On a molecular scale, information in the form of waves pulls atoms and molecules in to create more complex structures, such as DNA. So if these wave patterns were visible, empty space would appear as a fluid geometric patterns, such as the shape of a DNA strand, and would pull in atoms to form a physical replica of the wave-pattern.
New research reveals some remarkable properties of DNA which suggests that a “hidden force” plays a role in the formation of life in the universe
In a study published in the Journal of Physical Chemistry by London Imperial College Department of Chemistry, the idea of micro gravitational forces forming matter out of wave patterns was witnessed in person. Dr. Sergey Leikin placed different types of DNA in a salt water solution, and differentiated the various strands by coloring them. Remarkably, the colored DNA were drawn to one and another moving very far distances to find the corresponding matches, and in time every DNA strand was paired up correctly. Although Dr. Leikin equated the phenomenon with possible electrical charges, other research revealed that gravity was the likely culprit.In an astonishing experiment performed by Nobel Prize winner Dr. Luc Montagnier, DNA was randomly created out of nothing but sterilized water. The experiment used two separate sealed test tubes, one containing sterilized water and the other carrying both sterilized water and DNA. After electrifying both tubes and letting the tubes sit for eighteen hours, Dr. Montagnier was surprised to see that the tube that had originally contained nothing but water had produced tiny DNA strands. This was a shock for many reasons, mainly because water only contains hydrogen and oxygen and a DNA molecule is much more complex. How could something like this possibly happen? It seemed as though the DNA had “teleported” from one tube to the other, like they were connected by an unknown force.
Could this experiment reveal that forces of the universe are constantly trying to form life where ever it can by hidden micro gravitational waves? In 1984, a Russian scientist by the name of Dr. Peter Gariaev discovered another remarkable property of DNA, in which each strand had the naturally tendency to absorb and store hundreds to thousands of photons (light particles). Dr. Gariaev placed DNA inside a small quartz container, and to his surprise the DNA absorbed every photon in the room. Gravity is the only force that we know of that can bend light so therefore Dr. Gariaev’s experiment reinforced the idea of a hidden micro gravitational force.
Things got even stranger when Dr. Gariaev removed the DNA from the quartz container. To his amazement the photons that had originally been absorbed by the DNA stayed in the quartz container in the exact shape of the DNA. Anyone would have thought that the photons should have scattered, but there seemed to be an unknown force keeping the photons in place. Dr. Gariaev blasted the photons with nitrogen gas to disperse them, and within minutes the photons were drawn back to the same area and formed the same “phantom” DNA shape. This experiment suggests that gravity has a quantum structure and can exist without the presence of matter, permeating throughout the entire universe. If our DNA can store light, then could cosmic rays have an effect on the structure?
These discoveries could provide massive implications for science and our understanding of the universe. If gravity has quantum intelligent properties, then it could be proof that life exists or has the ability to form all throughout the universe. Further DNA studies revealed even more interesting abilities of the molecule when Italian scientist Pier Luigi Ighina was able to transform a living apricot tree into an apple tree by zapping it with DNA wave information. Ighina also zapped a rat with the DNA-wave of a cat, causing the rat to grow a cat-like tail within days. These experiments support the idea that DNA forms from information waves, and from this knowing we can suggest that our evolution may have been influenced by cosmic rays carrying encoded information from our Sun.
It is surprising that such astounding discoveries haven’t made it to the forefront of the mainstream media. These discoveries could change the foundation of physics and biochemistry as we know it. There is now evidence to suggest that an intelligent force is guiding the evolution of life throughout the universe which brings us another step closer to understanding the divine mysteries of our existence within the cosmos.
PROOF!!! Spontaneous Evolution is Happening NOW!
since 2006, scientists have been noticing a difference in the decay rates in nuclear particles, which had been consistently reliable in previous years. What does this mean? It isn’t typical to see such a drastic change in these decay rates. Scientists are seeing a change of 1/10th of 1% in these particles, which was previously unheard of and is unexplainable at this moment. When a particle speeds up, it means it’s radiating more energy. This includes the energy and particles within our own bodies. Studies on DNA have indicated that even very weak changes in the energy field can cause profound changes in our DNA.

Many asked me to write about my personal experience with OBE ( out of body experience ) so here it is 🙂
First I would like to say that I did it for experiment and to prove, we all have souls and there is life beyond our physical experience. Though I believe in the spiritual world, I am very skeptical in my nature so I must verify anything that interest me and not just believe it.
So with this in mind, I red about OBE in the late 90’s, red about it but never had time to try it, when I moved to Canada in 1997, I had more time to explore the esoteric information, so I started to read a lot about this, include original Kabbalah books in Hebrew and Aramaic, Hebrew is my native language but I had to learn Aramaic to read some of the books and so I did, reading the old Kabbalah books in its original source, gave me lot of insights, that I could never get in any other way, it’s hard to explain the experience to someone who didn’t try it but it is like someone is talking to you in your own life level, in away you can understand the spiritual dimensions, in your own eyes. In later times when I reread the same text from the Zohar ( the main Kabbalah book ) for example, I could understand more things, so those books are written in the language of symbolism, as it is the language of the souls, like in dreams each one will understand his dreams with his own symbolism.
I didn’t just read kabbalah books, I read almost all the main religious books as the Torah, the Jewish bible and the Christian bible, the Quran and Hadith as well as few non canonical books, buddhists and hinduism books as well. there is fine line connecting all the religions. I found out they all talk about love but teaching fear, the fear of death and after life, if you are a sinner in this life. So this was a very strong trigger to get me out of the books, into this spiritual world my self, yes I can’t forget the fear I had, but the curiosity was stronger, and so I went and looked into all the different methods to find out by my self, how to get out of my body. I didn’t wished to have NDE ( near death experience ) for this 😉 so for me OBE was the only real way to do it.
There are few methods that I tried but I will not go into this, as it didn’t worked out for me and was totally losing time. What I will explain is the only way I was able to do it.
So here it is: First I was able to do it only in the mornings, after good night sleeping ( other way you simply fall to sleep ) and in total relaxed and soundless room, my bed room was perfect for it when all was closed and no one was at home, I was working from my home when I lived in Canada ( website designer freelancer ) so I could find some time in the morning for this experiments.
So how my OBE was done?
When you are in total relaxed room with no sounds you lay on the bed and then start relaxing all your body, and I mean all ! From the fingers of your legs up to your ears every muscle must be in total relax, even the mouth should be left open you should be like a dead person, just breathing slowly and deeply and feel nothing, this take like 15 to 20 minutes to achieve.
When you are in this situation, you should start empty your mind, clean and block any thought that will pop up… this is even harder to do… but possible, with training you must get into total emptiness of your mind, with total relaxed body. This may take another 15 to 20 minutes.
If you passed those 2 stages, you will start feel vibrations and noise inside your brain, its like from your ears but its not, its inside your brain, wissel and vibrations like electricity between your ears, you should not go into panic and stay with it for 5 to 10 minutes, again without thinking or moving your body…
If you can do this part, you are ready to get out…
My first time, when I got out, was when I lay down and then lifted my self as if I would lift my self to sit on the bed, but I did it strongly and flipped over hitting the ventilator over my bed, while I was flipped ( if you imagine it ) I was able to see my body on the bed but looking from the legs side, I got really panicked from this, if someone had ever death fear, when your body frost and your face become all white, it is how I felt. I was sure I just died… and so I start swimming back into my body and woke up jumping and sitting on my bed all wet from cold sweat. It was the most frightening experience of my life so far.. I must admit..
How ever this got me the answers I needed, that I do have a soul and there is some sort of life out of the body…
My next experience took lot of time to achieve, noises, nerves, phone calls, all kind of disturbing events, prevent me to get into the vibrations mode, but eventually I was able to get it… however this time I didn’t want to hit the vent again, so I decide to flip over to the floor… and it is exactly what happened, I flipped but did not stay on the floor, I went inside, deep into the ground… it was dark and I could smell and taste the soil the rotten trees parts, it wasn’t good smell or atmosphere and I didn’t want to be stuck in it, so I try to get out, but this woke me up. So this experience taught me that we can pass matter while we are out of the body and we do feel smell and taste… even stronger than inside the body…
In my third experiment, I wanted from start to prove that I am not dreaming or have illusions, so I decided in advance, I’ll get out of the house and look to the cars numbers parking out side and will try to remember at least one car number, while I’m out of my body, then to go out and verify it, and so it is exactly what I did, this time I delicately got up for not jump to far, after I was in the vibrational stage, and was able to actually walk out vie the wall fall/fly down ( my bed room was in the second level ) and walk/fly in the street to a black car on the other side of the street, I think it was Honda or Acura I saw the symbol from the back and I looked at the number of the car, but couldn’t remember all, so I memorised only the 4 last numbers and simply decided to wake up, and on the spot, I was back in my bed with open eyes… I immediately got out home almost sliding down the stairs and in no time I was on the other side of the street looking at the black car 4 last numbers, indeed I knew them…
Well this was the ultimate proof I needed , I knew I wasn’t dreaming or imagining anything of it, this is total fact, there is life out of our body more over our memories aren’t in our brain… and we can fly…
Again took me few weeks to achieve the fourth OBE, mainly because of stress, this last event, totally changed my own perspectives about life, I wasn’t afraid any more about death, but actually was very afraid about the life it self.. If there is after life, then why we are in life ? Ok I knew from the religious books they all talk about it, we need to be good, but nothing in the experiments I did, point into this, there was simply life out of the body.. I had to go deeper or far inside this other side… and one cold morning ( about 6 months after my first attempt ) while under my blanket, I did it, I decide that this time, I’ll go far as I can to find out what is it really out there… So this time after around 10 minutes of vibrations and strong whistling sound in my brain, I didn’t just got out I jumped out of my body, up and out to the air via the roof, I went high maybe 100 meters up in the air and could see the houses down but then I flipped and looked up and was shocked to see light not the normal sky I used to see, it was strong warm light but not the sunlight, totally other thing, I kept moving into it flying upper and then started feeling Love, strong feeling of love, I had never felt in my life such feeling, it was love feeling that noone can feel in life and its took me like a magnet I wanted to be part of it, but then I was able to see something dark coming fast from the right side, I stopped and was afraid to look at it, but could see from the side of my eyes like a dark man shape, just beside me and this thing, communicated with me this ” stop don’t move any more and don’t ever try it again, if you wish to live, you are not ready yet ” immediately after I was back in my bed under my blanket, shaking like a baby… This was another shocking event that I’ll never forget… and it taught me more, I now knew there is LOVE force surrounding earth and there are angels or what ever you may call it, that guard it and us, from go into this place, if it isnt our time. So from this I knew what we have to do while we are in life, cause I was so nothing over there beside that enormous love force and understood that I wasn’t good enough, to be in such environment, I must be a better person, much much better…
After this experience, I never tried OBE again, cause I want to live and become the best I can be, before I’ll pass into this spiritual world. This event totally changed me and I kept on learning everything I could, about the spiritual world and kept trying till this day to find ways for verify the information, indeed there are many belief systems and it is hard to come up with “scientific” methods to prove them but I did try to find ways and till today it is now over 17 years I am doing it, while concentrating on one particular field – LOVE… and on this I’ll write in another article 🙂 thank you for reading this and I hope it may help those who need proves ( as me ) that we all do have souls and there is life out of our body and after we die we go there for sure.. and yes the power outside earth is LOVE unconditional LOVE…

Near Death Experiences,
A near-death experience (NDE) refers to a subjective experience that some people undergo, after being declared clinically dead or are in a situation where death is expected. The term was coined by Dr. Raymond Moody in 1975 in his book, “Life After Life“. Many near-death experiencers (NDErs), however, have said that the term ‘near-death’ is not correct because they are sure that they were in death, not just near-death.
pleasurable NDEs, involving feelings of love, joy, peace, and/or bliss, as reported by most NDErs; andNear-death experiencers (NDErs) have reported 2 types of experiences:
With recent developments in cardiac resuscitation techniques, the number of reported NDEs has increased. According to a Gallup poll, approx. 8 million Americans claim to have had a near-death experience. This number, however, may be underestimated, as some NDErs may not feel comfortable discussing their experience with others, due in part to NDE being perceived as a paranormal experience.
NDEs are presently studied in the fields of psychology, psychiatry, and hospital medicine.
Four Phases of a Pleasurable Near-Death Experience: The International Association for Near-Death Studies identified 4 phases that tend to happen in a certain order (although it can also occur in any order):
Blind Woman Can See During Near Death Experience Pim Lommel NDE
Here are some sientifc reaserching about NDE
A surge of electrical activity in the brain could be responsible for the vivid experiences described by near-death survivors, scientists report.
A study carried out on dying rats found high levels of brainwaves at the point of the animals’ demise.
US researchers said that in humans this could give rise to a heightened state of consciousness. The research is published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
The lead author of the study, Dr Jimo Borjigin, of the University of Michigan, said: “A lot of people thought that the brain after clinical death was inactive or hypoactive, with less activity than the waking state, and we show that is definitely not the case. “If anything, it is much more active during the dying process than even the waking state.”
From bright white lights to out-of-body sensations and feelings of life flashing before their eyes, the experiences reported by people who have come close to death but survived are common the world over.
However, studying this in humans is a challenge, and these visions are little understood.
To find out more, scientists at the University of Michigan monitored nine rats as they were dying.
In the 30-second period after the animal’s hearts stopped beating, they measured a sharp increase in high-frequency brainwaves called gamma oscillations.
These pulses are one of the neuronal features that are thought to underpin consciousness in humans, especially when they help to “link” information from different parts of the brain. In the rats, these electrical pulses were found at even higher levels just after the cardiac arrest than when animals were awake and well.
Dr Borjigin said it was feasible that the same thing would happen in the human brain, and that an elevated level of brain activity and consciousness could give rise to near-death visions.
1. Schizophrenia, dissociative anaesthesia and near-death experience; three events meeting at the NMDA receptor.
Med Hypotheses 2004;62(1):23-8 (ISSN: 0306-9877)
Department of Pharmacology, Erasmus University Rotterdam, The, Netherlands.
The three events, viz. schizophrenia, dissociative anaesthesia and Near-Death Experience, despite their seemingly unrelated manifestation to each other, have nevertheless similar functional basis. All three events are linked to the glutamate sensitive N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor complex, which serves as their common functional denominator. Arguments and speculations are presented in favor of the view that, the three events might be considered as functional models of each other. Antagonism to the recognition NMDA-site of the receptor induces dissociative anaesthesia and precipitates Near-Death Experience. Agonist reinforcement at the modulatory glycine-site of the receptor counteracts negative symptoms of schizophrenia. Both types of challenges towards the receptor are compatible with a glutamate deficiency concept which underlies the meeting of the three events at the NMDA receptor.
2. Near-death experiences and the temporal lobe.

Many studies in humans suggest that altered temporal lobe functioning, especially functioning in the right temporal lobe, is involved in mystical and religious experiences. We investigated temporal lobe functioning in individuals who reported having transcendental “near-death experiences” during life-threatening events. These individuals were found to have more temporal lobe epileptiform electroencephalographic activity than control subjects and also reported significantly more temporal lobe epileptic symptoms. Contrary to predictions, epileptiform activity was nearly completely lateralized to the left hemisphere. The near-death experience was not associated with dysfunctional stress reactions such as dissociation, posttraumatic stress disorder, and substance abuse, but rather was associated with positive coping styles. Additional analyses revealed that near-death experiencers had altered sleep patterns, specifically, a shorter duration of sleep and delayed REM sleep relative to the control group. These results suggest that altered temporal lobe functioning may be involved in the near-death experience and that individuals who have had such experiences are physiologically distinct from the general population.

Death Stud 2001 Apr-May;25(3):229-49 (ISSN: 0748-1187)
University of Virginia Health System, Charlottesville, Virginia, USA.
Few scientists have taken seriously the interpretation of near-death experiences (NDEs) as evidence for survival after death, even though most people having such an experience have become convinced that they will survive death and several features of NDEs are at least suggestive of survival. This article compares survival and some nonsurvival interpretations of NDEs in light of one feature suggestive of survival, that of reports of having seen deceased persons during the NDE. Several features of 74 NDEs involving such reports were compared with those of 200 NDEs not involving such reports. Although some of the findings could support either a survival or a nonsurvival interpretation, several other findings may weaken the primary nonsurvival hypothesis, that of expectation. Additionally, the convergence of several features suggesting survival and the convergence of features that require multiple kinds of alternative explanations, in individual cases as well as in large groups of cases, warrant our considering the survival hypothesis of NDEs more seriously than most scientists currently do.
4. What Emergency Department Staff Need to Know About Near-Death Experiences

A CASE TO REMEMBER
J.B., a 42-year-old white man, was taken to the Emergency Department (ED) by emergency medical services (EMS) after he was resuscitated at his son’s high school football game. He had suddenly collapsed and 2 bystanders started Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), which was continued until paramedics arrived 5 minutes later. he was placed on a cardiac monitor, defibrillated, intubated, and transported once an IV was in place and a rhythm established. Upon arrival, J.B. had 2 more episodes of ventricular fibrillation, which was treated according to the Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) protocol. he was transferred to the coronary care unit within the next 2 hours. Over the subsequent 24 hours, J.B. was stabilized, extubated, and closely monitored.
Two days later he asked his nurse to explain what had happened to him because he recalled “dreams” about how the paramedics had intervened with him at the game and how the ED staff had participated in his resuscitation. The nurse nervously stated that she was not at liberty to discuss his resuscitative care and encouraged him to consult his cardiologist about any concerns. J.B. did not inquire further about his “dreams.”
Two years later, J.B. attended a cardiac rehabilitation support group meeting and heard the guest speaker present the topic of near-death experiences (NDEs). he was shocked to learn that several people in the group had vivid memories of “dreams” they had following their resuscitation. J.B. became emotional and fought the urge to ask the speaker questions regarding his close brush with death. he had not allowed himself to discuss the subject though the memories were as clear that night as they were 2 years prior. Before he realized it he was asking the speaker about his memory of hearing one paramedic saying to the other, “Hurry up, crank it up to 200.. .we’re losing him, we’re losing him!” he continued to divulge that he felt something funny and then heard the paramedic yell, “Hurry up dammit, crank it up to 300; we’re losing this guy.”
After J.B. had recounted the 200-300-360 sequence, the speaker explained that he had just given the exact energy settings that health care providers are taught to use to defibrillate patients. J.B. innocently asked, “then you think it happened like that?” The speaker compassionately responded, “I think it happened exactly like that” as she saw others in the group wiping tears from their eyes.
J.B. is one of the estimated 10 million Americans who has reported a near-death experience (NDE) associated with resuscitation. he had an immediate desire to disclose the NDE but based on the reaction of the person he first chose to tell, he suppressed any further desire to share.
DEFINITION OF NEAR-DEATH EXPERIENCE
Absolute consensus on the definition of the NDE among researchers has not been reached though most will agree that it is one of the most powerful emotional and psychological events known. For the last 3 decades, the term NDE typically describes a close brush with physical, psychological, emotional, and/or spiritual death. Pirn van Lommel, Dutch cardiologist, recently defined the NDE as “the reported memory of all impressions during a special state of consciousness.”
Survivors often recall certain characteristics about their close brush with death. The most common characteristics include, but are not limited to, a bright light, encountering others, the presence of Deity, and peace and/or an understanding of love and knowledge. Van Lommel1 notes that specific elements of the NDE include an out-of-body (OOB) experience, pleasant feelings, and seeing a tunnel, a light, deceased relatives, or a life review.
STAGES OF THE NDE
Consensus about the stages of the NDE has also not been reached, probably due to the fact that no two NDEs are identical; however, patterns have emerged as patients report their experience. A composite of the stages described across cultures and centuries might include euphoria, an OOB experience, a tunnel experience, an unearthly world of light, and a decision-making period.
* Euphoria-a floating, peaceful feeling. Most report that they had no human wants or needs. They were not hungry, thirsty, in pain, hot, or cold.
* Out-of-body experience-a separation of body and spirit. Reports most commonly include watching the body from an outward perspective, feeling little to no attachment to the physical self.
* Tunnel experience-being pulled into a dark hole or the center of the earth. Some feel they were in a black vastness and/or moving quickly toward the center.
* An unearthly world of light-being in surroundings that are not of this earth. Some report seeing objects and beings that are unfamiliar or have features of light. Sounds such, as music, have also been noted in this stage.
* The decision-making period-being involved in the decision to stay or return. Some report knowing or being told that “it is not time” or that “you must go back” or being given the choice to return or not.
These stages are certainly not experienced by every person who has had an NDE. Some people report being in a bright light or a dark tunnel and having a “knowing” that they must return and that is the entire experience. Others describe all the stages of the event in elaborate detail.
For hundreds of years, people have reported stories related to their close encounters with death. Notations may be found in The Bible, The Tibetan Book of the Dead, and many widely read sources, but not until 1975 was the term Near-Death Experience used to describe such encounters. Moody published Life After Life, a book containing stories and accounts revealed to him by over 100 people. he was criticized for his “nonscientiflc” study by other researchers. Moody’s work has been accepted as the foundation upon which others have based their research. he identified perceptions frequently described by patients who had been successfully resuscitated. These include but are not limited to
* feelings of separation of mind from body
* sensations of drifting, floating, passing through solid objects
* awareness of actual events but an inability to communicate to living beings
* hearing loud, hissing, thunderous noises
* moving through a tunnel
* meeting a brilliant, warm Light
* experiencing peace, indescribable beauty, splendor, and a longing to be part of it
* recognizing others
* communication with deceased others by thoughts
* returning through darkness, propelled by force
* feeling a purpose about life
Kubler-Ross3 subsequently included this phenomenon in her publications related to aspects of death and dying. She reported anecdotes of deathbed visions, visits, and stories. The patients sharing these anecdotes described many perceptions which had been identified by Moody.
The first scientific study of NDEs was documented by Ring4 in 1980. he found that in a sample of 102 people who came close to death, 49 described an NDE that fit the core experience concept. Of the 102 subjects, 61 appeared to be unable to verbalize language to describe the feelings, perceptions, and time frame of the NDE.
Articles in the medical literature in the late seventies and early eighties primarily reported qualitative studies which focused on “stories”from patients who had close brushes with death. Sabom5 reported “recollections” of patients in his practice who had suffered a myocardial infarction. They too, recounted many of the same characteristics cited by Moody.
George Gallup reported a landmark study conducted by the prestigious Gallup Poll. He reported that “approximately 35 percent of those persons who have come close to death undergo an NDE.”6
Greyson noted a lack of quantitative measures of the NDE and its components and introduced an NDE Scale. The 16-item final questionnaire resulted from an original 33-item tool Greyson developed after identifying 80 manifestations characteristic of an NDE. he used cluster analysis to reveal 3 factor clusters, which are transcendental, affective, and cognitive NDEs. Greyson reported that “this reliable, valid, and easily administered scale is clinically useful in differentiating NDEs from organic brain syndrome, and nonspecific stress responses. “7(p569)
Oakes, in 1978, published a 3-part segment entitled The Lazarus Syndrome in RN magazine. Here she reported the first nursing research study that focused on “what patients perceive in near-death events.”8(p55) She noted that “strong cultural influences and religious beliefs affect a patient’s expectation of what death will bring; and that this is reflected in the dying process.”8(p56) Oakes concluded her 2-year study, in which she interviewed 21 postresuscitation patients, with a Care Plan for the Unique Needs of Those Who’ve Died.8(p60) The care plan included 5 major guidelines to consider when CPR becomes necessary. The first suggestion helped guide care when a patient is in cardiac arrest and apparently unconscious. Specific interventions included avoidance of threatening language, reassurance about care, and incorporation of comforting touch. The second guideline related to caring for patients who become unconscious. Reassurance and support, reality orientation, and care during transfer to intensive care unit (ICU) are recommended for the plan of care. Establishment of a low stress environment, which included considerations about personal care items, privacy, verbal support, was the third care plan item. The fourth guideline dealt ‘with interventions regarding the post-CPR reports of NDE. Attention and active listening, nonjudgmental behavior, assistance in exploring the event, and documentation were discussed and encouraged in this section. Lastly, methods for follow-up care were reviewed. Care plan items included assessment of the impact on the patient, intervention with the family, and long-term support.
Orne reported her findings related to nurses’ attitudes about NDEs and what they considered appropriate interventions. Results indicated “listening to NDE accounts and encouraging discussion” ranked highest among responses.9(p420) She concluded her study with a list of research questions which need to be answered. Two of these provided foundation for this study. They included “Is coping influenced by what is (or is not) said or done by nurses?” and “What strategies are most needed: reassurance, information, invitations to talk and explore feelings, or referral?”
Corcoran10 presented insights on how to best provide care for patients who have had an NDE. She reviewed the phenomenon, characteristics, incidence, and aftereffects. In addition, she provided a new concept. Research has shown that “NDEs have fairly common characteristics around the world, so, if an NDE is a hallucination, it must be a universal hallucination.”10(p36) She urged nurses to carefully listen to patients’ information regarding their experience without judgment.
Currently several researchers are exploring various aspects of the NDE and reporting the data in the Journal of Near Death Studies as well as major medical journals such as lancet.
AFTEREFFECTS OF THE NDE
Recognizing that no two NDEs are the same, it would stand to reason that the aftereffects of the NDE are unique as well. However, there are certain aftereffects that are reported more frequently than others. The most common of these include having no fear of death, less regard for material wealth, chemical sensitivities, and difficult disclosure decisions.
No fear of death
Though many state that they are not eager to die or separate from loved ones, they see death from a different perspective and therefore accept it as a part of life. Additionally, individuals who have suffered chronic pain and have an NDE often become more comfortable with death knowing that it will bring peace and comfort. On the surface, realizing that a patient may have an acceptance of death especially when death is imminent and suffering has become more apparent might bring comfort to caregivers and loved ones. However, if the patient is a small child who-now accepts death when his parents and family have not reached the same point can be very difficult for all concerned. Healthcare providers also may feel conflicted when the patient seems unconcerned about the possibility of death. Patients who request that no resuscitative efforts be taken in their plan of care may meet resistance from their health care team.
Less regard for material wealth
Near-death survivors often report a decreased desire for material wealth as they note an increase in the importance of relationships. Affluent near-death experiencers (NDEers) explain that the need for money, resources, and even fame no longer drives their behavior. As they integrate the experience and such a significant change in philosophy, they find loved ones have difficulty in accepting them as well as their life goals. Unfortunately, studies have shown that the divorce rate for NDEers is higher than the national average. Individuals who have strivecl to meet personal, financial, and spiritual goals suddenly find themselves on divided paths. For the near-death survivor the path may be lonely but acceptable.
Increased chemical sensitivity
Near-death survivors report strange reactions to certain chemicals following the NDE. Individuals state that they no longer enjoy drinking alcohol, experience hypersensitivity to medications they have used for years, as well as encounter unusual reactions to dyes used for diagnostic procedures. Problems associated with such sensitivities may include physical compromise in addition to delays in treatment when health care providers do not understand and/or accept the phenomenon.
Difficult disclosure decisions
Multiple factors which influence decision making regarding disclosure of the NDE were documented by James.11 These factors included considerations related to timing of the disclosure, the individual(s) to be told, motives for sharing the experience, as well as motives which lead to nondisclosure.
Timing of the disclosure
With regard to when the NDE is disclosed to another, James found that the NDEer may attempt to discuss part of the phenomenon immediately after the experience, or as soon as he/she can communicate, simply to validate that he/she was as close to death as was perceived. An in-depth discussion of the actual experience may not be the desire of the NDEer at such time because he/she may not understand what occurred and time may be needed for acceptance of the circumstances which led to the NDE. On the other hand, NDEers may desire to talk about the actual experience soon after the event to share with a loved one the beauty, peace, and joy of the experience. NDEers report attempting to share their story immediately, but felt as though others “did not understand, were not interested, or thought they were crazy or confused.” NDEers who do not attempt to share their story immediately report trying to tell someone as soon as they felt they “needed or wanted to. ” On the basis of the reaction of the confidant, the NDEer may wait years before disclosure may be possible.
Individuals chosen for disclosure
James concluded from her data that the NDEer will most likely attempt to tell a nurse or physician about the NDE regardless of the timing. The primary reason is because these individuals are more apt to understand the severity of the situation or condition. The next choice is typically a family member; however, a greater risk may be perceived as disclosure may impact a long-term relationship.
Motives for disclosure and nondisclosure
Motives for disclosure include the need for support or information, and because someone cared. Motives for nondisclosure are personal issues and noncaring behaviors. Personal issues may include that the NDEer feels it is not practical to share for various reasons or that he/she has negative feelings about the listener.
The NDE is not uncommon, but is so profound and personal that often the experiencer desires to disclose the event immediately after it occurs. This desire frequently results in an attempt to share the event with those responsible for the care of the experiencer. Health care professionals are often in a position to promote a path of physical and spiritual health and well-being. Therefore, their increased awareness and sensitivity of the needs of the NDEer are essential.
The need to create a healing environment was first documented by Florence Nightingale12 in I860 in her Notes on Nursing. In many cases, the NDE occurs in a health care setting, such as a hospital, ambulance, or clinic, wherein the nurses and physicians, and sometimes clergy and family, are immediately available to the NDEer. Health care professionals play a key role in the promotion of an environment of healing.
The decision as to which individual(s) the experiencer will select for disclosure depends primarily on the demonstration of specific caring behaviors of the caregiver. The NDEer must recognize the promotion of a safe environment before sharing is possible. The response to the first attempt at disclosure will have a serious impact on future disclosure decisions.
Possible interventions for ED staff caring for patients who have had an NDE might include but are not limited to the following:
* Actively listen to verbal and nonverbal communication. The patient may desire to share very personal data and may be searching for permission to proceed. Remain alert to phrases like “I had a strange dream,” or “a weird thing happened.”
* Foster a caring environment. Use positive language and pleasant tones of voice. Promote a healing atmosphere in every aspect of patient care. Realize that even in resuscitation efforts patients may be aware of certain behaviors.
* Listen. Allow the patient to describe what is on his mind and do not interrupt with explanations about drugs and hypoxia. Remain nonjudgmental.
* Be there. NDEers state that they told “the nurse show was really there.” Make eye contact, slow down, look at the patient, and ask about their feelings. Hold the patient’s hand and listen. Care.
* Research. Conduct research regarding the impact of specific interventions used in the care of the survivors of near-death events.
* Allow the patient/NDEer to decide how to proceed. Respect the confidentiality of the experiencer. If he/she would like assistance in discussing the NDE with the family, assist. If he/she asks about resources, refer to the local FOI (Friends of International Association of Near-Death Studies) Chapter.
* Prepare the patient who will undergo life-threatening procedures or surgery. If the patient has had a serious compromise during a procedure, be alert for clues and ask open-ended question. Establish a safe environment.
* Answer questions. Recognize the fact that many NDEers question their own sanity and need support and information. Reorient as needed. Listen. Explain that “sometimes people who have had this type of injury or illness have told about interesting feelings or dreams.” Open the door. Validate the severity of their illness or injury.
* Inform colleagues. Assist other health care providers in understanding the significance of the NDE and the support the experiencer needs.
* Utilize available resources. For further information, such as frightening NDEs, NDEs in children, and additional aftereffects, contact the International Association for Near-Death Studies at http://www.IANDS.org.
* Share the story. Share NDEer’s stories with those who survive close brushes with death. Listen.

Though I’m attracted to the mystical aspects of the life, I’m in my nature very skeptic and never take things as facts just cause some one say they are, but if it really interesting me, I will do anything in my power to prove or dismiss it my self. Such is the case with the question many ask themselves ( I suppose… ) so how did I find out that I have soul ? Who say there is soul any way? How can anyone prove it ?
Well it turn out there is a way – OBE ( out of body experience ) While it may occur spontaneously or in near death experiences, there is a way in specific meditation, to actually get out of the body, I did it 4 times, till at the forth time, I met an angel… so here I got 2 birds in one test. 😉 well it turn out ( as the angel transmit this info to me ) I was not ready to do such out of body travels, so I got last warnings from this angel, to never try it again, if I want to ever come back to life… I will post about all this also..
OK, so now from this I know there are souls and angels, and what I know about soulmates ?
Well if there are souls and I wasn’t ready to travel out of my body any more, it’s mean one thing, the souls are in the bodies for get ready… ready for what? you would ask,.. Well this I knew from my last travel also, as I went up and outside my house via the roof ( for the first time by the way ), to the sky and looked up there was no sky, well not the one we normally used to see, it was all bright light radiate the feeling of love, and I felt so small and such a nothing beside it, but I wanted to go upper into it and be part of this endless love, but then right after, I saw this angel beside me, so from this I knew I wasnt ready for all the love and need to learn much more about it and become love, so I will be able to stay there, cause it is all I wished for, to be there inside this endless feeling of love, that nothing like that exist in life, the only feeling that can come slightly close to it happen, when you are in love, in deep love, when you hug your love one you may feel this divine feeling of love, between you, uniting you in this divine feeling of love, such feeling I do have with my soulmate, that I recently found, and this also happened because of my research into the spiritual aspects of life… So here again I know soulmates is a real thing, because I’m living in love with one of my soulmates, I wrote about soulmates in my first article here: https://soulmatelove.wordpress.com/2014/09/06/how-to-find-your-soulmate-love/
Here is more information about the OBE if some one wish to try it… and you can contact me if you’ll need help with this…
An out-of-body experience is a condition usually occurring spontaneously during meditation, deep sleep, hypnosis, shamanic trance, sensory-deprivation, anesthesia, extreme illness or trauma, in which one finds themselves outside their physical body, yet remaining fully conscious and perceiving everything normally. Robert Monroe describes it as“an altered state of consciousness in which the subject feels that hismind or self-awareness is separated from his physical body and this self-awareness has a vivid and real sense about it, quite different from a dream.”
The experience typically begins by finding yourself floating over or standing next to your physical body, perceiving normally, but with a great feeling of lightness and power. You may see your physical body lying on the bed or you may just rise straight up through the ceiling. You may have a ghostly, astral body which can fly around or you may be a point of pure consciousness which can travel instantaneously to wherever you think about.
“Some individuals describe themselves as amorphous clouds, energy patterns, or pure consciousness; others experience distinct feelings of having a body which is, however, permeable, invisible, and inaudible for those in the phenomenal world. Sometimes there is fear, confusion, and a tendency to return to the physical body; sometimes there are ecstatic feelings of timelessness, weightlessness, peace, serenity, and tranquility. Some individuals in this state show concern about the fate of their physical bodies; others feel totally indifferent.” -Stanislav Grof & Joan Halifax, “Human Encounter with Death” (154)
“You can move through space (and time) slowly or apparently somewhere beyond the speed of light. You can observe, participate in events, make willful decisions based upon what you perceive and do. You can move through physical matter such as walls, steel plates, concrete, earth, oceans, air, even atomic radiation without effort or effect. You can go into an adjoining room without bothering to open the door. You can visit a friend three thousand miles away. You can explore the moon, the solar system, and the galaxy if these interest you. Or you can enter other reality systems only dimly perceived and theorized by our time/space consciousness.” –Robert Monroe, “Far Journeys”
Most OBEs have common features. They all typically begin while in an altered state of consciousness your awareness shifts to a point outside your physical body. The physical body is usually seen dormant on the bed (or wherever you left it) while a second, astral body is seen attached to your new space of awareness. This light, ghostly body can pass through walls or solid objects, float/fly around, and is sometimes even seen by other people.
“In the OOBE, the individual is near-totally conscious … Most if not all of your physical sensory perception is replicated. You can ‘see,’ ‘hear,’ and ‘touch’ – the weakest seem to be smell and taste. Your perspective is from a position outside your physical body, near or distant. In a near state, it is usually from a location impossible for you to ‘be’ with your physical body, such as floating against the ceiling. In a far location, it could be in Paris when you know you are in New York physically. You can observe events taking place, but you cannot change or significantly affect them. You can verify the authenticity of such events subsequently if you so desire.” –Robert Monroe, “Far Journeys”
OBE’s have been reported throughout history by people of all ages and cultures. The soul-body or astral-body was known as the “ka” to ancient Egyptians, the “siddhi” to Indians, and the “bardo-body” to Tibetans. OBEs are the main subject matter, described in detail in the Egyptian and Tibetan Books of the Dead. St. Paul seems to describe an OBE in second Corinthians chapter twelve. Ernst Hemmingway wrote about witnessing his soul leave his physical body and float around after being hit by shrapnel in 1918.
“Aldous Huxley, Goethe, D. H. Lawrence, August Strindberg, and Jack London all reported having OBEs. They were known to the Egyptians, the North American Indians, the Chinese, the Greek philosophers, the medieval alchemists, the Oceanic peoples, the Hindus, the Hebrews, and the Moslems. In a cross-cultural study of 44 non-Western societies, Dean Shiels found that only three did not hold a belief in OBEs. Erika Bourguignon looked at 488 world societies – or roughly 57 percent of all known societies – and found that 437 of them, or 89 percent, had at least some tradition regarding OBEs … Dr. Robert Crookall, a geologist at the University of Aberdeen and an amateur parapsychologist, investigated enough cases to fill nine books on the subject.” -Michael Talbot, “The Holographic Universe”
“It is quite well known, for example, that many cultures attribute to shamans the capacity to fly out of the body. In fact, a shaman cannot be anointed as such unless he has that capacity. According to Eliade, such flights express ‘intelligent understanding of secret things, metaphysical truths, symbolic meaning, transcendence, and freedom.’” –Robert Monroe, “Far Journeys” (278)
Many surveys have also been conducted in recent years testing the prevalence of the OBE phenomenon. In 1954 Dr. Hornell Hart of Duke University surveyed 115 of his students and found that 27 of them had experienced an OBE at least once. A 1966 study by Celia Green showed that 19% of students asked at Southampton University had had one. A 1968 Green15 survey reported that 34% of 380 Oxford undergraduates had experienced an OBE. Palmer and Dennis’ 1975 study randomly selected a group of 1,000 students and townspeople in a small Virginia town resulting in 25% of the students, and 14% of the townspeople answering affirmatively. Erlendur Haraldsson’s random survey of 902 adults found 8% had been out of their bodies at least once. And a 1980 survey by Dr. Harvey Irwin at the University of New England in Australia found 20% of his 177 had experienced out-of-body travel. All results pooled together, it seems an average of about 1 in 7 people experiences an OBE at least once during their lives.
“First, OOBEs are a universal human experience, not in the sense that they happen to large numbers of people, but in that they have happened all through recorded history, and there are marked similarities in the experience among people who are otherwise extremely different in terms of cultural background. One can find reports of OOBEs by housewives in Kansas which closely resemble accounts of OOBEs from ancient Egyptian or oriental sources. Second, the OOBE is generally a once-in-a-lifetime experience, seemingly experienced by ‘accident.’ Illnesses sometimes bring it about, especially illnesses which are almost fatal. Great emotional stress sometimes brings it about. In many cases, it simply happens during sleep without our having any idea of what might have caused it. In very rare instances it seems to have been brought about by a deliberate attempt. Third, the experience of an OOBE is usually one of the most profound experiences of a person’s life, and radically alters his beliefs. This is usually expressed as, ‘I no longer [merely] believe in survival of death or an immortal soul, I know that I will survive death.’ The person feels that he has directly experienced being alive and conscious without his physical body, and therefore knows that he possesses some kind of soul that will survive bodily death.” –Robert Monroe, “Journeys Out of the Body”
In Robert Monroe’s book “Far Journeys” he shares many recorded accounts of OBEs including the following: “When I was approximately ten years old I was living together with my older brother at my uncle’s house, a major in the U.S. Army Medical Corps. One day I was reclined on my bed quite awake and was looking at the ceiling beams of the old Spanish building where the living quarters were located. I was saying to myself many questions such as what was I doing there and who was I. All of a sudden I get up from the bed and start walking toward the next room. At that moment I felt a strange sensation in me; it was a sensation of weightlessness and a strange mix of a sense of a feeling of joy. I turned back in my steps in order to go back to bed when to my big surprise I saw myself reclined on the bed. This surprising experience at that very small age gave me the kind of a jerk which, so to say, shook me back to my body.”
When talking about these subjects at work I found that one of my colleagues, while under anesthesia for an operation, found himself out-of-body hovering against the ceiling in the corner of the Operating Room where he watched his body and the surgeons perform the entire procedure. It turns out this is actually a fairly common occurrence. Dr. Michael Rawlings recorded the account of one patient who remembered what the doctor was wearing and what he did during an emergency procedure, which was seemingly impossible because the patient was in a coma at the time.
“Out-of-body experience also eventually became a relatively common subject, as more and more surgical patients reported that they witnessed their entire operations and heard everything that was said in the operating room.” -David R. Hawkins, M.D., Ph.D., “Power Vs. Force”
“Experiencing an OBE during cardiac arrest is relatively common, so common that Michael B. Sabom, a cardiologist and professor of medicine at Emory University and a staff physician at the Atlanta Veterans’ Administration Medical Center, got tired of hearing his patients recount such ‘fantasies’ and decided to settle the matter once and for all.” -Michael Talbot, “The Holographic Universe”
Dr. Sabom interviewed 32 chronic cardiac patients who reported having an OBE during their heart attack and the results forever changed his mind about this phenomenon. He asked them to describe exactly what they remembered happening during the procedure while they were out-of-body:
“26 gave correct but general descriptions, 6 gave highly detailed and accurate descriptions of their own resuscitation, and 1 gave a blow-by-blow accounting so accurate that Sabom was stunned. The results inspired him to delve even deeper into the phenomenon … he has now become an ardent believer and lectures widely on the subject.” -Michael Talbot, “The Holographic Universe”
In conclusion to his research, Dr. Sabom stated: “[There appears] to be no plausible explanation for the accuracy of these observations involving the usual physical senses. The out-of-body hypothesis simply seems to fit best with the data at hand.”
“There are many people who have reported OBEs in which they saw things that really did happen. The most common of these are the descriptions by patients undergoing surgery, who claim to have witnessed the whole procedure from outside their body. Some have reported details of the procedure that they could not have possibly known, such as where the doctors put gall stones that were removed. Some patients have accurately repeated conversations that went on during the surgery. Skeptics may dismiss such cases by theorizing that some subconscious part of the patient still had cognitive abilities during the operation, and assuming that somehow the patient accessed this subconscious memory when they awoke. This theory cannot explain the less common cases where OBE subjects have reported what was happening in a different room. These seem to suggest that the subject could actually see some part of physical reality.” –Robert Peterson, “Out of Body Experiences”
My fiancé Petchara has also experienced OBEs many times periodically throughout her life. Always during sleep, having drifted off into the subconscious realms, there comes a self-reflexive moment where she finds herself floating in her room with a light-body while fully aware that her physical body is asleep on the bed. From there she usually leaves through the closed window by her bed and floats over the roofs/houses/roads in her village. On many occasions she has astrally projected to the houses of classmates, houses she had never visited before, and remembered specific details which were later confirmed true by her shocked classmates. During one OBE she found herself at her friend Tan’s house and saw orange stairs, a street sign, a van parking lot on one side and a small wooded area on the other, all subsequently confirmed true by Tan. Another time she found herself apparently outside her friend Oil’s new condo, face to face with a “do not enter” sign on the door and a large swimming pool on the left, both later confirmed to be true. Not long after meeting me, she astrally traveled to my old house in America where my parents still live and accurately reported the outline, white color, gray tin roof, garage, shelving and flower beds.
“I had a spontaneous OBE as a teenager, and after recovering from the shock of finding myself floating over my body and staring down at myself asleep in bed, I had an indescribably exhilarating time flying through walls and soaring over the treetops. During the course of my bodiless journey I even stumbled across a library book a neighbor had lost and was able to tell her where the book was located the next day.” -Michael Talbot, “The Holographic Universe”
In Dr. Stanislav Grof’s book “The Holotropic Mind” he shares the account of one Cuban woman who, during cardiac arrest in a Miami hospital, found herself out-of-body back at her old home in Cuba. She recovered from the heart attack, but came back to her body very agitated about what she had seen while astrally in Cuba. The people now living in her old home had moved everything around, changed furniture, and painted the fence a shade of green which she hated; all of which were subsequently verified and documented by her curious attending physician.
In Michael Talbot’s “The Holographic Universe” he shares the story of Kimberly Clark, a Seattle hospital social worker who never took OBEs seriously until an incident with a coronary patient named Maria. One day Maria went into cardiac arrest and found herself hovering against the ceiling watching the doctors and nurses tending to her body. She watched for a while and then found herself distracted by something over the emergency room driveway. As soon as she thought about this, she was instantly there hovering outside the hospital:
“As soon as she ‘thought herself’ there, she was there. Next Maria ‘thought her way’ up to the third floor of the building and found herself ‘eyeball to shoelace’ with a tennis shoe. It was an old shoe and she noticed that the little toe had worn a hole through the fabric. She also noticed several other details, such as the fact that the lace was stuck under the heel. After Maria finished her account she begged Clark to please go to the ledge and see if there was a shoe there so that she could confirm whether her experience was real or not. Skeptical but intrigued … she went up to the third floor and … found a room where she pressed her face against the glass and looked down and saw the tennis shoe. Still, from her vantage point she could not tell if the little toe had worn a place in the shoe or if any of the other details Maria had described were correct. It wasn’t until she retrieved the shoe that she confirmed Maria’s various observations. ‘The only way she would have had such a perspective was if she had been floating right outside and at very close range to the tennis shoe,’ states Clark, who has since become a believer in OBEs. ‘It was very concrete evidence for me.’” -Michael Talbot, “The Holographic Universe”
“In some instances of OOBEs the description of what was happening at a distant place is correct and more accurate than we would expect by coincidence. Not the majority, by any means, but some. To explain these we must postulate either that the ‘hallucinatory’ experience of the OOBE was combined with the operation of ESP, or that in some sense the person really was ‘there.’ The OOBE then becomes very real indeed. The fact that most of our knowledge about OOBEs comes from reports of once-in-a-lifetime experiences puts us at two serious disadvantages. The first of these is that most people cannot produce an OOBE at will, so this precludes the possibility of studying them under precise laboratory conditions. The second disadvantage is that when a person is suddenly thrust for a brief period of time into a very novel environment he may not be a very good observer.” –Robert Monroe, “Journeys Out of the Body”
OBEs are generally sporadic or once-in-a-lifetime phenomena so scientifically verifying their authenticity is an elusive task. However, with the help of many skilled astral projectors, OBEs have indeed been scientifically documented in the lab. For instance, in one experiment, parapsychologist Charles Tart wrote a five-digit number on a pad of paper then kept it in a locked room. In another room an experienced astral traveler laid down, shifted consciousness to her astral body, floated through the wall and accurately reported the number. In another series of experiments, psychologists Janet Lee Mitchell and Karlis Osis set up a special room for OBE trials at the American Society for Psychical Research in New York. They placed certain images, objects, and colored geometric patterns in various places around the room, locked it, and then had skilled astral projectors from many places across the country project in and record what they saw. Many of the participants were able to correctly identify everything in the room. In another series of experiments, Dr. Robert Morris, director of research at the Psychical Research Foundation in North Carolina, used pets to detect the astral presence of their owners. For example, during one experiment, a kitten belonging to seasoned astral traveler Keith Harary would always stop meowing and start purring whenever Keith astrally projected into the room.
“Some people have mastered the ability well enough to leave their body at will. One of the most famous of these individuals is a former radio and television executive named Robert Monroe … Monroe began keeping a written journal of his experiences, carefully documenting everything he learned about the out-of-body state. He discovered he could pass through solid objects and travel great distances in the twinkling of an eye simply by ‘thinking’ himself there. He found that other people were seldom aware of his presence, although the friends whom he traveled to see while in this ‘second state’ quickly became believers when he accurately described their dress and activity at the time of his out-of-body visit. He also discovered that he was not alone in his pursuit and occasionally bumped into other disembodied travelers.” -Michael Talbot, “The Holographic Universe”
“As an example of a real-time projection experience, I think of my nephew Matt’s two-week visit back in 1991. During this time, apart from many other activities, I coached Matt on projection. A few days before he was due to leave, while meditating late at night, I clearly saw Matt’s projected real-time double float through the wall and come into the room I was sitting in. He waved cheerfully at me and I slowly waved back at him, without breaking my entranced state – no mean feat in itself – immensely pleased that Matt had finally managed to get out of his body. Matt floated about the room, seemingly having some difficulty with movement and directional control, but apparently thoroughly enjoying himself. He soon floated out of my sight and that was the last I saw of him that night. The next morning Matt was very excited about his first conscious-exit projection. He vividly remembered using my technique and feeling heavy vibrations, then leaving his body, moving through the wall and seeing me, and us waving at each other.” –Robert Bruce, “Astral Dynamics”
“Considered as a whole the evidence seems unequivocal. Although we are taught that we ‘think’ with our brains, this is not always true. Under the right circumstances our consciousness – the thinking, perceiving part of us – can detach from the physical body and exist just about anywhere it wants to. Our current scientific understanding cannot account for this phenomenon, but it becomes much more tractable in terms of the holographic idea. Remember that in a holographic universe, location is itself an illusion. Just as an image of an apple has no specific location on a piece of holographic film, in a universe that is organized holographically things and objects also possess no definite location; everything is ultimately nonlocal, including consciousness. Thus, although our consciousness appears to be localized in our heads, under certain conditions it can just as easily appear to be localized in the upper corner of the room, hovering over a grassy lawn, or floating eyeball-to-shoelace with a tennis shoe on the third-floor ledge of a building… If the idea of a nonlocal consciousness seems difficult to grasp, a useful analogy can once again be found in dreaming. Imagine that you are dreaming you are attending a crowded art exhibit. As you wander among the people and gaze at the artworks, your consciousness appears to be localized in the head of the person you are in the dream. But where is your consciousness really? A quick analysis will reveal that it is actually in everything in the dream, in the other people attending the exhibit, in the artworks, even in the very space of the dream. In a dream, location is also an illusion because everything – people, objects, space, consciousness, and so on – is unfolding out of the deeper and more fundamental reality of the dreamer.” -Michael Talbot, “The Holographic Universe”
Dr. Clancy McKenzie M.D. The American Mental Health Association
“This love energy appears to follow precise laws, that are like other laws of physics, and which appear to be quantitative. yet it is equally as invisible as was stress at the turn of the previous century.”
The Love Energy – INTRODUCTION TO LOVE ENERGY
Proper nutrition, exercise and relaxation are recognized as vital ingredients for a long and healthy life. But there is a fourth ingredient that largely has been overlooked. This fourth factor is love, which can add as much to one’s energy level and to one’s longevity as any of the other factors. In fact, biblical accounts indicate that love energy potentially can add hundreds of years to one’s life – yet this comparatively important factor has not been studied scientifically to the same extent as the other three factors.
Even though most of us do not see this love energy readily, this does not mean it does not exist or does not have great impact. Take for example a person who eats nothing but junk food, smokes, doesn’t exercise, drinks beer and sports a pot-belly. Let him fall in love, and suddenly he has as much energy as a person who lives on energy food and exercises daily. Suddenly he can work day and night. What is the mechanism for this enormous flow of energy and where does it come from? How can we harness it and use it at will? These questions are especially important in the health fields, because this energy might also be the healing energy, or the life force itself.
The Love Energy – DEFINITION OF LOVE ENERGY
To begin to understand love energy, let me first give a definition that will make more sense as time goes on. I define love as an attention or energy directed outward, and the byproduct of which is happiness. The opposite is need or desire, which is the same attention or energy directed back to the self, and the byproduct of which is unhappiness. Reverse the direction of flow of attention or energy and you get the opposite feeling. Fall in love and you are in a state of bliss – but as soon as you want the other person to love you, you are miserable.
Fall in love and you have so much energy you can work day and night, but as soon as you reverse the direction of flow and focus attention on the self “Oh woe is me, aches and pains, etc.” you have so little energy you can hardly move.
Subliminally we do see evidence of this love energy, but we have not really analyzed it in modern times. We see this energy, for example, when a person falls in love, because we say “he’s beaming, glowing, radiant, vibrant, turned on.” Thus we see, at some level, the aura – which brightens in intensity proportionate to the increase in flow of love energy. Holy people, or saintly individuals, are those who become extremely loving, and they are depicted as having bright auras or halos, or as being surrounded by light. This “aura” that we see might have another name: In a dream state I heard the words: “The aura is the edge of the soul.” Interesting. I wasn’t thinking about this or looking for it. It was as though someone was passing by and just wanted to tell me that. So was this a part of my own mind? Or was it some kind of a visitor?
The Love Energy – THE LIFE FORCE
This love energy is the life force itself, or the healing energy. Need or desire, which is the exact opposite, roughly can be equated with what is sometimes called “sin,” and we have read “the wages of sin are death.” Or, “Touch the forbidden fruit and you shall surely die.” This is energy flowing in a direction opposite to the direction of flow of the life force, and opposite direction of the flow of love energy. There are scores of biblical accounts of holy people who lived for hundreds of years. These are also people who were known to be very loving and who are depicted as having very bright auras.
In another dream-state I saw the fountain of youth. I wasn’t looking for it; it was simply there, revealed to me and for what reason I do not know. It is not in some distant corner of the earth: It is within every person. It is a beautiful fountain of love energy in each person, waiting to spring fourth. What I saw was a beautiful outpouring of love energy, radiating outward about arm’s length. I instantly knew it was the fountain of youth – and along with the vision was the clear awareness that as soon as the person wants to live forever, he/she shuts off the flow. (One can forever want to help people, but to want to live forever is the wrong direction of flow of this attention or energy.)
This just might be what is described as the energy of the soul. You might have heard about yogis advising to draw energy from the soul, and we have heard the words “soul power.” How is this energy used? How do we draw from this enormous, boundless, unlimited source of energy and let it flow through us? One way is to do the task for someone else. This gives much more energy. Examples: a person who dedicates winning a race for a child who is dying of leukemia — versus running the race for the self. One’s chances of winning are enhanced if one dedicates the race to someone else. Another example of this was in the Tyson versus Holyfield fights. Holyfield dedicated the victory to God, whereas Tyson was fighting strictly for his own glory.
I’m not saying this is 100%, but it appears to be a factor – and the strength of this factor might depend on the intensity of the desire to do the task for someone else.
The Love Energy – THE BEGINNING OF THE END
A most precious 23-year-old daughter of one of my patients had Hodgkin’s lymphoma, and prior to receiving another round of chemotherapy she overheard her doctor telling another physician “I’m afraid this is the beginning of the end for her.”
I encouraged her to explore alternative methods, but the next chemotherapy was set to begin the following week. So I told her about programmed dreams and recommended she have a dream that would tell her exactly what to do.
In her programmed dream she was helping someone else who had a serious problem, and when we discussed her dream she added “that’s how I recovered so fast from the first round of chemotherapy, by focusing my attention on helping someone else.”
I really wish she had explored alternative medicine approaches, but I recognized that she was right on course with the love energy, the life force, the healing energy. She made a quick recovery from the effects of chemotherapy and I am hoping that the love energy enabled the treatment to be successful.
The Love Energy – HOW TO INCREASE LOVE ENERGY
While traveling across India I met with a highly evolved Kundalini yogi and I asked him how to become total love energy toward all people all the time. When this holy man finally stopped laughing, he wrote on slate with chalk (because he had not spoken for 30 years) and his disciple translated: “When you want to hit a target with an arrow you aim only at the bulls eye.” This makes sense, because we all reach out with a love-need combination, and to the extent there is need, there can be hurt feelings when those needs are not met, and the danger of hurt feelings prevents us from reaching out more fully. When reaching toward total love, toward the bull’s eye, there can be no rejection – and this allows us to reach out more fully. Furthermore, if we are loving the purest form of love energy, then we are identifying with, and emulating, that very source itself.
Bahkti yoga is the discipline of intensifying love energy. The total effort is to intensify love, and to experience constant love. The day is filled with devotional love. This can be practiced with or without formalized religion.
In our own daily lives we can sort through each thought, word, feeling, action – and put it on the scale to determine love versus need. By “need” I mean desire. This is most useful in psychotherapy. If a person is miserable it is because he wants something. If a husband or wife complains bitterly about the spouse, this has NOTHING to do with loving the other person; it has only to do with caring exclusively about the self and wanting more for the self.
Enhancing the love energy of the patient is an effective way to increase the healing process. This holds true for both psychological and physical healing:
Patients who are injured or who have serious physical illnesses, often are focused on the self and the illness. This shuts off the flow of the healing energy. Depressed persons are focused on the self, and this is the opposite of being in love or loving someone else. Persons who have physical injuries or terminal illnesses frequently are quite depressed, which is counterproductive when trying to get well. Anxiety accompanies depression and vice versa for obvious reasons. Anxiety causes depression, which is why sometimes it can be treated with tranquilizing agents. When persons are anxious, they are worried, consciously and unconsciously, about “what’s going to happen to me?” This is the wrong direction of flow of love energy and will produce unhappiness and loss of energy. It is little wonder that criteria for depression include no interest in anyone or anything, and, loss of energy.
The Love Energy – TREATING DEPRESSION
Article – The Love Energy INTRODUCTION TO LOVE ENERGY DEFINITION OF LOVE ENERGY THE LIFE FORCE THE BEGINNING OF THE END HOW TO INCREASE LOVE ENERGY TREATING DEPRESSION GIVING AND RECEIVING THE FLOW OF LOVE ENERGY
Depressed persons and anxious persons can be cured by treating their conditions through the love dimension alone. A person who becomes totally loving can neither be depressed nor anxious. While I use a multidimensional approach to the treatment of depression, and I consider at least 14 different dimensions of treatment in addition to medication, the one factor I never lose sight of is the direction of flow of love energy, and I always point out when the problem is primarily the patient’s need or desire. This same enhancement of love energy is very valuable in treating psychoses, because psychosis – as I will describe in a subsequent lecture – relates to a partial return to infancy, with all the needs of the infant. When a person becomes predominantly loving, this is movement away from the needs of infancy, and movement back into adult mind/brain/reality.
The same holds true for the addictions. At an addictions unit I directed, a counselor voiced the opinion that it was very important to show the patients that the counselor really cares about them. I corrected him on this and said it was much more important that he get the patients to care about him, and do something for him. He then recognized that he himself had overcome his addiction was when he began helping others with theirs.
Enhancement of love energy should be a part of every physical remedy, because it is a vital ingredient to healing. If persons are angry or hateful they will not heal as quickly or as well. There are numerous studies that demonstrate the enhancement of the immune system with love energy or prayer, but these studies are just touching the surface or catching a tiny aspect of this energy. A thorough understanding of the laws of physics which govern this energy is important, because it enables us to identify the direction of flow of this energy, and reverse it at will if it is flowing the wrong direction.
On a number of occasions I have read about a small town in Pennsylvania, named Roseto – which was studied extensively by medical researchers in the 1960s, because its residents were among the healthiest in the United States. Surprisingly enough, the people there smoked as much, exercised as little, and faced just as many stressful situations as other Americans.
After extensive testing the researchers learned that this community, more than any other studied, showed a remarkable cohesiveness and sense of unconditional support for one another. The conclusion drawn from this, and similar findings in the literature, is that all this interpersonal support brings with it the life prolonging and life-saving qualities.
The Love Energy – GIVING AND RECEIVING
I was interested that this study touched upon this fourth factor for health and longevity, yet at the same time did not differentiate between giving and receiving. Hasn’t it been said that it is better to give than to receive? The health and the longevity is a result of the outward flow of this energy. Giving the support is the correct direction of flow of this energy. There is nothing wrong with receiving the support, and in fact it can cause us to be grateful, appreciative and loving – but wanting or desiring support would be energy flowing in the wrong direction and would be counterproductive. It would shut off our fountain of youth.
In the Gita this energy is described in terms of the three Gunas: Satvas, Rajas and Tomas. Satvas is the highest level, followed by Rajas and then Tomas. I equate Satvas with love, or energy flowing outward, Rajas with need or desire, or energy flowing back to the self, and Thomas with apathy, or no energy going anywhere. There are biblical references to this as well. Christ made some reference to preferring persons hot or cold, but definitely, not luke-warm. Tomas is the lowest of the three gunas. It equates to apathy or being luke-warm.
In the Gita it states that the route from Tomas to Satvas sometimes is through Rajas, or – stated in English, the route from apathy to love sometimes is through need. Many years ago I developed a means of instantly converting persons from apathy to love, by triggering need but preventing hurt or jealous feelings. It is possible to take the most distant apathetic relationship, trigger need but prevent hurt or jealous feeling, and precipitate intense feelings of love.
For example, the wife of a political figure in Washington gradually became viewed as dull and mundane by her husband – because he was travelling around the world to exciting places and meeting daily with important people. When he would come home, he was exhausted and would open a can of beer and watch a soap opera on television. She became very upset and her needs were intensified by his lack of interest and affection.
Suddenly one day he became very interested in her; we applied the approach of converting tamas to satvas through rajas. This always works if done properly. On my advice, she told him that she really cared about him, that he was number-one in her life, and that she wanted him to do whatever made him happy. She understood he was tired when he came home after a very hard day and just needed to relax and put his feet up and have a can of beer. This was OK with her – but meanwhile she was going stare-crazy just looking at the four walls and having no one to talk with. So would he mind, would he object, would it be OK if she went out to the local nightclub just to socialize, dance, meet people and have a good time. She presented this in such a way that of course he had to say go ahead, enjoy yourself.
Note there was nothing to stir jealousy or anger: She did not say “You are not paying attention to me so I am going to go out and meet other people who will pay attention to me.” Instead she asked “do you mind if.,” and he gave her permission. She of course does not need permission, but she needs to not stir feelings of hurt, anger and jealousy – if she wants his love and interest instead.
This middle-aged housewife was far too anxious about stepping out alone to actually go into the nightclub, so she drove around the block several times and went to a fast food restaurant, lingering and not returning home until about midnight. Her husband was up and waiting for her. He was interested in how her evening went, and she told what a wonderful time she had and the interesting people she met. His level of interest in her skyrocketed, and for the next several months everywhere he traveled around the country he invited her to go with him. This was good for him and for her, because he felt better too when his love energy was intensified.
After a few months his level of interest settled back down and so she tried the approach once more. This time she made the mistake of stirring hurt, anger, need and jealousy. When she returned home at midnight he was already asleep, so she fell asleep on the sofa, and then at 4AM went tip toeing upstairs. He awakened infuriated, calling her names saying he wanted nothing to do with her. But had she said “I met a great group of people and probably won’t get back until 4AM,” there would have been no jealousy whatsoever, just interest directed outward, toward her, which is love.
The Love Energy – THE FLOW OF LOVE ENERGY
When you understand the flow of love energy you can redirect it at will. To help a person recover from a serious illness, get that person to help someone else – or to help others with the same illness. One of my patients with AIDS is experiencing a substantial improvement in his condition since he has started counseling people in the hospital who are dying from the disease. Get the patient’s energy flowing outward, have the patient help others, encourage the person’s religious practices – and here you might have to redirect the person from the give me, give me, give me prayers to “I love you, I love you, I love you” type prayer.
Fear is the antithesis of love and it is counterproductive: It focuses attention and energy on the self. Picturing the self to be well, the body free from disease, knowing and trusting this is so, and helping others recover — perhaps from similar problems — is far more productive. For the healing process it is important to avoid anger, hatred, bitterness, worry – and to focus instead on intensifying love, caring, doing for others with no regard for anything in return, and the expression of devotional love and appreciation. All of this enhances the life force, the healing energy, and the recovery process.
This love energy appears to follow precise laws, that are like other laws of physics, and which appear to be quantitative. Of all things to study in medicine today, it is the analysis of this love energy itself which might be the most rewarding and productive. It is this love energy to which I hope to devote a large portion of the remainder of my life. Likely it is the most important factor for healing and for longevity since Seleye discovered stress, yet it is equally as invisible as was stress at the turn of the previous century.
We have many soul mates, but not cause we knew them in the past lives, if talking about time on the soul level, there is no time at all , so we can imagine how it’s look like living where the souls are, a place where time is dimension, you can move back in time, so in this case we are all soulmates… because we came from 1 soul the first man… So soulmate love comes from other reason, it’s the soul level energy that pull us, to like each other and some time to fall in love. More and more people can find soul mates now because of the internet, and this have nothing to do with some change in “the electromagnetic pull of the earth” nor cause we started love our self more, people love them selves all the time and way to much, this is the problem, not the reason why they find soulmates… and sex was and is one of the biggest force and form of self love, mostly in males of any animal, this what push any animal for find a mate and secure the survival of the species, it is the natural force of evolution, nothing to do with soul mates !
I also don’t believe in “calling your soulmate ” I believe people should put themselves out there in any place they can, and say it loud and clear, that they are looking for real love ! call it soul mate or not … and look for it, search it, till you’ll find one of yours, there are millions of soul mates to any one, just find them and with one of your potential soul mates, you may have real love, the internet is the best way to do so, now ! The creator will not help you out, he don’t go and help people on personal level! He put his angels ( so called Elohim ) long ago in the creation time, this was about 14 milliard years ago ( in our 3D earthly time counting ) in the time of the so called ‘ big-bang ‘ ! Those angelic forces are pushing any living thing in the universe to advance on the spiritual level in evolutionary process.
The Angels teaching us the creator will – how to love, by pushing us in the life needs. So yes this include sex, power, greed and all the bad things that we know life bring. Most of the time we learn with the negative aspect of life, so with the opain this life bring, we learn and understand that this isn’t the way, this called the way of life, but we must force our self to be better and come over our egoistic body needs, cause we are not our bodies, we are the souls, jailed in our bodies, unfortunately too many times we learn only by the negative side, by pain, we don’t really learn from other mistakes, we have to do them all over again, people learn by the way of life the difference from good and evil or in other way the different from love and hate, or give and take, but this take time, not everyone are on the same understanding of the real reality. The way we understand life called, soul level and from this, the importance of finding soul mate, one who can walk with you in the same path on the same life level understanding, so together you can advance as fast as possible and in the same path… ( so this love will not brake ). Because there is one thing that we can’t have in life – rolling time back… so time is the most expansive thing and there for, it is so important to find your soul mate as fast as possible in life, it is your obligation to your self, your soul, to do what ever you can, while you are alive, to find a soul mate that can help you advance your soul.
Just Hidding and pray your God , will not help! Put your self out there in every dating website, every group or try any other way that may lead you to your soul mate, this is not just the right way, it’s the must way… You need to simply search for one soul mate and I’m sure you’ll find, cause there are millions in your soul level out there !
One thing though can block anyone from finding love; when someone don’t love him self, this is maybe the biggest problem people have in life, luck of understanding that they can be anything they wish to be, if they really want it… but that’s for other post 🙂
After many years of spiritual researching and testings my knowledge on hundreds of people around the globe, I created soulmate finder program. As a programmer I have created algorithms based on my unique knowledge and the verified statistics designed to find potential soul mates, so it gives anyone much more chances to find the best soul mate. So how I know its working ? … I have asked people to give me birth dates and names of soulmates couples they know, the definition for “soulmates” was this: Married couples for 20 years or more, that stay in love after all those years together, I entered their info into my algorithm and got 90% accuracy in prediction of soulmates, then I have asked people to send me birthrates and names of divorced people they know and again enter this info into my algorithms , again I got 90% accuracy in predicting divorce… this gave me the assurance I needed to start the development of new revolutionary website that will really help people find real love, real soulmate love the highest form of couple love. this website is in final; stages of development and soon will be ready in beta ver. If you wish to get free VIP access to it ( value of 100$/month ) you can send me message here and I’ll be happy to send you VIP invitation by email when the beta ver. of my soulmate finder website will be online.
