STAYING GROUNDED IN TIMES OF CHANGE The
message coming from many spiritual teachers and traditions
is that the best way to thrive in difficult times is to
use what is happening as an opportunity for spiritual
growth. They all point to the importance of staying grounded
and focusing on our spiritual practice, of prayer and
meditation, of making what is happening inside ourselves
the focus. When we are calm and centered and focused on
the eternal, we are in a much better position to stay
resourceful and connected with our inner guidance system
and so make good decisions. Michael
A Singer and Tami
Simon discuss the importance of building resilience
during these challenging times. Michael stresses the importance
of protecting your immune system by staying calm, clear,
open, and filled with good energy.
A Spiritual Leader from
the Andes Mountains points out that a lot of
the energy of fear, of worry, of doubts, that we feel
is not coming from ourselves, "it is simply the energy
of others, which is coming towards us so that we can transform
ourselves as catalysts of that energy and transmute it,
release it again converted in light." Watch
her message in full.
"You must learn to rise above fear and not to allow
its vibration to hinder you, to have perfect faith and
confidence and trust, to know that you can stand on your
feet and say: 'I am the Great Spirit and the wind of circumstances
cannot shake me. I will rise triumphant over every difficulty
because of the infinite power which is within my soul."

WILLIAM BUHLMAN ON
THE BIG PICTURE We can always rely on
out-of-body experiencer and spiritual teacher William
Buhlman to give us an expanded perspective. Here, he claims
that by coming into a physical body, we are making an
enormous advance in consciousness and experience, moving
from a non-form-based reality to opening to experiences
through the entire multi-dimensional spectrum. William
is a superb teacher and writer, and we highly recommend
all his books. Read
IN THE HIGHER REALMS Out-of-body
explorer Jurgen Ziewe is one of the few who describes
the beauty of the higher levels in the afterlife from
extended first-hand experience.
sensory facility is greatly enhanced, but we will find
that emotions have a much greater range, often with many
more nuances of joy or other positive feelings, which
makes the experience here so distinguished from everything
we have ever known.
A much broader range of colours with hues we never knew
existed can be perceived, and the same applies to sound
as well as other perceptions, including smell and taste.
We will simply have greater direct access to the intrinsic
energy that is manifested in the objects of the world
surrounding us, so when we look at a stone we will connect
to the energy of the stone with its unique aura and consequently
the whole world surrounding us comes to life, is lit up
from within and may respond to us as we pass.” Excerpt
from the book “Vistas
of Infinity - How to Enjoy Life When You Are Dead."

THE TRANSCENDENCE OF TIME IN SHAMANIC
PRACTICE Michael Harner,
of the Foundation for Shamanic Studies, explains how
shamans can be absent from their bodies for 30 minutes,
but experience it as being away for days. They can also
use rhythmic drumming to travel at will into the past
or future to help and heal others. His book The
Way of The Shaman is a classic.
MARK MACY ON WHAT IS NEEDED TO
CREATE ADVANCED ELECTRONIC CONTACTS WITH OTHER DIMENSIONS
In his work
Transcommunication, Mark Macy has consistently emphasized
the need for extreme harmony and single-mindedness in
creating a successful "bridge" to the afterlife.
Mark's articleshould be essential reading for
anyone working in this field.
" ....if a few individuals are committed to sustaining
resonance (and all that that entails, such as each member’s
constant fine-tuning of self), they’ve provided
fertile ground for an ITC bridge.
On top of that, they’ll need one
highly sensitive person. That’s someone who’s
not just psychically sensitive (someone who gets clear,
reliable impressions from finer spiritual beings while
dreaming, meditating, and ‘day-dreaming’),
but also emotionally sensitive—trusting, loving
of all creatures, empathetic to those less fortunate,
and so on. That is the kind of disposition that resonates
with the finer realms of spirit… and an ITC bridge
cannot be formed that does not resonate with the finer
realms of spirit." Read more about What
I Learned From ITC (Part 6): To Establish a Bridge
DOCTORS AND SPIRITUALITY: WHERE
SCIENCE MEETS THE SOULSusanne
Wilson discusses spirituality with three physicians:
Eleanor Concepcion (“Connie”) Mariano, M.D.,
F.A.C.P. Rear Admiral, U.S. Navy (retired); Eben Alexander,
M.D., and Jeff O’Driscoll, M.D., Intuitive Mentor.
THE LAW OF CAUSE AND EFFECT
We know that the conditions we will experience in the
afterlife depend on the level of our consciousness - our
vibrations. We are creating our future lives here and
now by our thoughts, words, and deeds. Mons. High Benson
put it like this:
a man sows upon earth that will he reap in the spirit
world. Such is a full statement of the text. That is the
law. The great, inescapable, inevitable, infallible law
of cause and effect. It is minutely exact and perfect
in its operation. It is incorruptible; there is no bribery
that will touch it; no privilege can lodge a claim against
it. It operates alike upon ALL men, regardless of age
or sex, regardless of social position; regardless of occupation.
Whether 'king or commoner,' cleric or layman, rich or
poor, all come alike under the supreme law of cause and
effect, and it acts in exactly the same manner with each
individual." (MORE LIGHT
1995 ed., page 27).
AFTER DEATH CONTACTS An
after-death communication (ADC) is defined as an experience
occurring when a person is contacted directly and spontaneously
by a loved one who has died. ADCs are probably as old
as human history and may explain why ancient cave dwellers
buried their dead in ways suggesting they were aware of
their afterlife. Christine is the author of a book about
Children's contacts with departed loved ones: Heaven

and Loving Messages.

TRANCE MEDIUMSHIP WISDOM FROM NICK
PETTITT Nick says he used
to sit with Colin Fry and David Thompson when they lived
next door to each other in Haywards Heath about 20 years
ago. He then joined a physical mediumship development
circle called The
Mercury Circle and later became their circle leader.
The circle ended in 2008 when the medium passed over.
I was also developing trance mediumship around this time
and in 2012 began to sit regularly in Eastbourne with
another lady, Liz. He records and transcribes his sittings.
