STEVE TAYLOR, Ph.D.: “Transformation Through Dying — The Aftermath Of Near-Death Experiences”

Ascension Avatar note: I’ve been through this three times since age 3 and retained my original soul, but each time came back wiser with new abilities… art… hearing ‘music of the spheres’… having ‘x-ray vision’ into the souls of humans, if they are human at all or a cloned version… knowing the final outcome of earthly events long before they ‘occur’…

.   .   .

 

A near-death experience is when a person appears to be clinically “dead” for a short period — when the heart stops beating, the brain registers no sign of activity and other vital signs indicate death — and yet they report a continuation of consciousness. This may happen following a cardiac arrest, for example. For a few seconds or minutes, a person may show no biological signs of life, and yet when they are resuscitated, report that a series of unusual experiences.

Typically, near-death experiences begin with a feeling of separation from the body (or out-of-body experience), sometimes with a humming or whistling sound. Then there is usually a journey through a dark passage or tunnel towards a place of light. There is a feeling of serenity and intense well-being, a sense of calmness and wholeness, which is often so pleasant that some people are reluctant to return to their bodies, and even feel disappointed when they regain consciousness. Often people meet deceased relatives or beings of light. In a smaller proportion of cases, there is a “life review,” in which the significant events of a person’s life are replayed.

Throughout the experience, people feel that their senses have become heightened — everything they experience has a quality of intense realness. In contrast to hallucinations, NDEs feel much more real than our ordinary experience. There is often also a sense of being outside time. Even though a person may only be unconscious for a few seconds, they may undergo a complex succession of experiences that may appear to last for hours. There is also a sense of connectedness or unity. The sense of being a separate entity, enclosed within our own mental space, is replaced by a sense of being part of an interconnected network of being, of sharing identity with other people, or the world in general.

Near-death experiences are controversial because it is difficult to explain them in neurological terms. Many suggestions have been made — for example, that they are caused by cerebral anoxia, by undetected brain activity, or the release of “psychedelic chemicals” like DMT or ketamine in the brain when a person is close to death. From this point of view, NDEs are nothing more than brain-created hallucinations, no more real than dreams.

The After-Effects of NDEs

However, one of the most striking things about near-death experiences is their long-term effect. They frequently bring about a profound shift of values and perspective, which itself leads to major lifestyle changes. People often become less materialistic and more altruistic, less self-oriented and more compassionate. They often feel a new sense of purpose, and their relationships become more authentic and intimate. They report becoming more sensitive to beauty, and more appreciative of everyday things. One person who had an NDE after a heart attack told the researcher Margot Grey, “Since then, everything has been so different… The sky is so blue and the trees are much greener; everything is so much more beautiful. My senses are so much sharper.” People often report becoming more intuitive too, and even sometimes developing psychic abilities. Another woman told Margot Grey that she felt “a very heightened sense of love, the ability to communicate love, the ability to find joy and pleasure in the most insignificant things about me…I seemed to have a very heightened awareness, I would say almost telepathic abilities.”

One of the most significant effects of NDEs is a loss of the fear of death. Because NDEs have such a powerful quality of realness, most people are convinced that they really have briefly experienced death. As a result, they become certain that there is life after death. And since their NDE was such a blissful experience — so blissful that people are sometimes disappointed to return to their bodies — any anxiety they may have had about dying dissolves away. It’s probable that an unconscious fear of death is a major source of a lot of pathological human behavior — such as materialism and status-seeking — so when this fear disappears, it has a major effect. So the loss of fear of death probably contributes significantly to some of the other changes I’ve already mentioned, such as a shift away from materialism.

It’s remarkable that one single experience can have such a profound, long-lasting transformational effect. And this is illustrated by research showing that people who have near-death experiences following suicide attempts very rarely attempt suicide again. This is in stark contrast to the normal pattern — in fact, a previous suicide attempt is usually the strongest predictor of actual suicide.

And in my view, the fact that they have such profound after-effects makes it seem very unlikely that NDEs are a brain-generated hallucination. Hallucinations certainly do not have these kinds of transformational after-effects. They are usually quickly forgotten, with a clear sense that they were delusional experiences, less authentic and reliable than ordinary consciousness. But with near-death experiences, there is a clear sense that what we experience is more real and authentic than normal consciousness, and our vision of reality — and our values and attitude to life — are completely transformed.

So if NDEs can’t be explained in neurological terms, how can they be explained? Perhaps to a large extent, they can’t be explained. But as I point out in my new book Spiritual Science, they certainly point towards a different vision of the world in which consciousness isn’t directly produced by the brain, but is in some sense fundamental and universal.

MICHELLE WALLING: “Important Information About Reiki”

One of the first things a person wants to do after their awakening is to begin to serve others. Many of the awakened people on the planet are natural healers and learn a method of energy manipulation called Reiki. While this form of healing can be powerful, it can also be detrimental to the recipient if the healer is not on the level of understanding and guidance of a higher level.

Reiki is a form of energy healing where the “universal energy” is passed through the hands of the healer to the recipient. The main benefit of such energy seems to be receiving energy when energy is lacking to a specific area. The only reason one would need to receive universal energy from another is if they have not remembered how to connect to the source of universal energy within themselves, usually due to low vibration energy blocks. It is human nature to want to help another feel better so that they can perhaps then be able to move forward and connect to their own energetic force.

In order for safe Reiki to be administered, there are a few things you should consider before either giving or receiving Reiki.

First, the Reiki healer should be able to either see the recipient’s energy field or be completely guided by their higher self or healing team. How is it possible for someone to be able to give the correct frequency of energy to the right area if one cannot “see” the energy field? It could be detrimental to the recipient to have too much energy in one place. Very rarely, individuals serve as vessels for teams of higher beings to work through and they simply move their consciousness out of the way and let the teams take control of the physical body and perform the healing. These types of healers will stand out in the alternative community as miracle workers and thus will have a proven track record. Otherwise, be wary of someone who simply becomes certified to give energy but has no way to gauge where it needs to go or what frequency or color it needs to be.

Second, the Reiki healer needs to have done healing and clearing on themselves. If a person does not know their Reiki healer well, they have no idea of who or what is in their energy field. Until hitchhikers, astral beings, and fear are dissipated by a person themselves, they should not be trying to heal another person. It is not a good idea to receive Reiki from someone who is just in the beginning phases of their own healing and awakening process. Otherwise, energy healers can inadvertently pass these energies or entities around like a ghostly virus.

Third, if a person is a hands on healer, they need to be clearing any negative energy from themselves before laying their hands on another person. Until protocols of protection are learned, a Reiki healer should not touch another person, especially if they are an open empath. Of course, that is how many people get healed and it is a wonderful thing for a person to get healed by someone when they couldn’t clear the energy blockage themselves. But this is hard on the healer to take on the energy and then to have to take the time and energy to clear themselves. Sometimes the healer gets too overwhelmed with energy that they have inadvertently taken on and they can get sick or “burned out” as the body gets fried.

Fourth, as we are moving closer and closer to connecting with a greater consciousness and self-healing understanding, it is not a good idea to continue enabling a person to rely on others to give them energy. All souled humans have the ability to remove the blockages that re-establish the connection to the same universal source. That is the real goal of someone who is on the ascension path, and one who continually seeks that energy outside of themselves is bypassing the work themselves will continue to struggle until they begin the path of self-healing.

While it is noble to want to be in service to others as a healer, it could also be harming others more than helping if the above topics are not considered. The very best way a person can help another is to work on themselves first. Some people take a fast track and can work on their issues within a year and some take decades. There comes a time in a truly balanced and healed individual where they catapult themselves into a higher timeline. Only then are they truly connected with their higher self and guides who tell them exactly what their mission is. If that mission happens to be healing, the protocol and method for doing that healing will be shown to them and the healing guides will always be there to assist on every session. This is the kind of Reiki healer one would want to be, and this is the kind of healing that one would want to receive.

In summary, the very best Reiki healers are “seers”, people who have a direct connection or open telephone line to their healing guides, or people that know how to step out of the way and let their healing guides work through their body. If you have recently received Reiki healing from someone and you got sick or feel worse from that session, try clearing by taking a sea salt bath and calling on your own healing team to remove any energies you may have picked up. Grounding with Earth and imagining that all that is not yours be pushed out of you feet into the planet for transmutation is also another good method. Ultimately we all end up making a few mistakes on our journey so that we realize how to heal ourselves.

As we continue to collectively raise our consciousness and understanding of frequencies and energy, it is important to refine each area in the metaphysical and spiritual arena. We have to become more aware and responsible for our own actions, where we are placing our energy, and what energies we are taking on from others. Clearing and healing yourself automatically affects everyone who is connected to you or that comes into your energy field. This has proven to be the most effective and accelerated way to help others collective ascend in frequency. While Reiki should not be necessarily ruled out in the higher consciousness protocols, the understanding and mastering of energy postulates that we can shift energy on a quantum level through association rather than a physical level.

MICHELLE WALLING: “5 Metaphysical Mistakes That Can Lead To Distortion In Your Reality”

We are coming to a time in our reality where things should be coming up for clearing in the lives of most of the forerunners. If you are having trouble staying balanced or keeping your relationships sacred, you or someone around you may have some issues with hitchhikers or uninvited walk-ins. There are many false teachings and practices that are created to keep us blindfolded to energy vampirism and open to manipulation. Here are 5 metaphysical mistakes that can lead to distortions in a person’s reality.

The Inability to tell true guidance from false guidance

If one’s heart is not open it is almost impossible to tell your true guidance from entity or negative spirit guidance. Guidance that tells you what to do, points out the faults in someone else, or judges another’s path is not going to be your highest spirit guidance. Many false guides want to keep you battling someone else in order to consume energy. Some may want to keep you alone in sadness and depression, and some yo-yo back and forth in a volatile dance. Because of the deception involved, many people spiral down this path giving their power and energy away to ghouls that may be unseen to most but can be seen or felt to the tuned in psychic. These false guides often give incorrect relationship advice, send people off on wild goose chases masked as “grid work” (as opposed to legitimate gridwork), and encourage people to quit their jobs and/or leave their family and responsibility behind.

False synchronicities

Negative spirits can manipulate the matrix through other people in order to set up synchronicities that make it seem like a “coincidence” that a certain event happened. Because we have positive synchronicites that are supposed to let us know that we are on the right path, these sets ups can be mistaken for an invitation to “following the white rabbit” In relationship, this is usually part of a “Love Bite” scenario as described in Eve Lorgen’s book. For example, you may just happen to run into someone while out for a walk more times than the normal odds would provide. Other false synchronicities like deciding where to live or what job to take are created in order to traverse off of the highest and best timeline. It is easy to tell the difference between a false synchronicity and a positive one by the way it feels in your gut and in your heart. You can also use common sense to tell if something just does not feel right, especially if the decision you are trying to make because of a synchronicity harms or hurts someone else. If your heart is closed, it’s prime sandbox play for the djinns because you are unable to use your spidey senses to discern.

Allowing a spirit to enter your third eye

One of the most dangerous ways a negative spirit can manipulate someone is to pose as a beautiful siren or handsome knight which may come toward a person and then enter their third eye. From that position, all visions and realities can be manipulated. Our real guides have no need to enter any of our chakras. Be sure to keep your auric field protected and sealed.

Opening your crown chakra in a group meditation

Many unsuspecting metaphysical and spiritual groups lead group meditations where energetic buffets can take place. If the person responsible for organizing the event does not have a “seer” in the room and protection in place, everyone who attends can allow energy, technology, or negative spirits in through guided meditations that open up the crown chakra. From that seat, a person’s connection to Source can be distorted and lessened.

Walk-ins

Your body is sacred, and whoever occupies the body has a vested interest in what happens on planet Earth. The only walk ins that one should allow in their body are those of their higher selves, which is planned to occur at a certain time and level of consciousness with the soul’s orchestration. Unfortunately, those who have cracks in their auric field through trauma, addictions, and abuse are prime targets for disembodied entities (people who have “died” and are looking for a host) and astral beings who are looking for energy in order to survive.

There are a number of traps laid in the matrix for energetic vampirism and to stop the forerunners from ascending in vibration. Matrix programmers, light workers, starseeds, code carriers, and healers can be targeted from birth on throughout their lives. The biggest manipulation is often through close family members and unsuspecting friends at an early age, in order to create the abuse that will get the auric field open before the child is able to make proper discernment decisions on their own. “Sparkly and shiny” and all that glitters often lure the young child into giving consent for their play friends to join them in the wrong ways. Many front runners were abused sexually, emotionally, and mentally as a child in order to set the child up for distorted realities and split personalities.

The good news is that we are getting much-needed help from star nations at this time to clear these distortions in order for people to begin to make clear choices on their own. Each star nation or race has crews that are helping their incarnated family member. There have been recent reports of first contact in dreams, visions, and internal thoughts. Professional mediums, psychics, and healers are being trained to “see” these distortions and help fix them with the guidance of a person’s higher self.

Once the forerunners are healed, they will then be able to help others clear up their distortions (re-programming their individual matrix). The ironic thing is that forerunners knew that they would more than likely be infiltrated after incarnating or walking in, but they also knew that there would come a day when everything would be reversed and the veils would lift. They agreed to allow it to happen so that they would know just how deep into the illusion one can get when penetrated by the astral begins or disembodied entities. After all, how could they possibly know the extent of the manipulation if they had not been through it themselves? One thing to keep in mind is that our star families love us endlessly, and nothing can match the vibration and healing of true love. Have faith that years of distortion can be cleared up in a short amount of time and that everyone that asks for help will be helped in one way or another.

ATHENA MELCHIZEDEK: “About Presence, Embodiment And Personal Process”

So much has been written about Presence and Embodiment but very little around the actual personal process that is required to become a fully Present and Embodied being.

In this case when I speak of Presence I am speaking of the integration of the True and Higher SELF that we always ARE without the distortions of wounds, traumas, masks and defenses of the egoic nature that all obscure this from being fully realized.

Presence is not found in the stories of yesterday nor in the “what ifs” of tomorrow.

Presence is the NOW!  Life is happening NOW.  Transmutation is happening right here in the NOW moment.

And what of Embodiment — what does this really mean?

Embodiment is bringing to your conscious awareness every thought, feeling, and sensation — awareness of every energy stream that runs through this miraculous physical body — from moment to moment.

It is having a full awareness and experience of the full Self in the moment while remaining in relationship and having full conscious awareness and contact with another.

This allows a spaciousness to arise in the relational field that can enable the deepening of the process of another.

As we work through our own issues by slowing down our process and becoming aware of the movement of energies within our own bodies, we become aware that our body holds all the answers to all our questions.

It is an infinite fountain of wisdom and knowledge and if we can slow down our process and quiet the mind long enough it will reveal these precious gifts.

In our personal process we are continuously dissolving old paradigms, old images, thoughts and beliefs that have been hardwired into oursystems at the cellular level by our early environmental conditioning, childhood wounds, and misperceptions of reality.

As we dissolve the old belief patterns we are doing nothing less than reforming our neural pathways, literally.

We are creating new ways of being, new ways of seeing, and new ways of perceiving as we undertake the process of allowing more of our Presence to shine through.

This is what “to process” means in this context.

The importance and value of group energy as a reflective mirror should not be underestimated.  It really amplifies and accelerates every piece of work.

Undeniably, groups enable an experience of far wider transferential issues than one-to-one integration work can offer and allow us to experience the possibility of different outcomes immediately thus breaking habitual patterns.

This is because in any group we are attracted to join we will find the exact configuration that represents our next level of refinement.  This will happen whether we are in a formal process group or whether we are just living our lives.  For our energy field will attract in like energy.  This is physics.

When we do this work consciously i.e. we are aware of what is being presented to us and can now see this in our self, we begin the rewiring of the neural pathways of the brain as we are called to a new response to the thought, action, or word that created our original wounding or trauma.

When we do this work in ourselves, it opens up the possibility for others in the group, as we are all connected in the oneness of all life.

Through harmonic resonance and a new conscious awareness, as we raise our frequency, we automatically create the opportunity for others to rise as they see them selves and, particularly their shadow, in the group mirror.

Our very being and presence can present them with a new possibility and opportunity to experience the perceived self differently.  As we transform, so can they.

The implications of this work for the world at large become much greater when we realize that our presence and embodiment affects not only our self but all those with whom we are in contact: friends, family, colleagues, strangers.  We do not have to DO anything.  We simply have to BE.  This is enough.

Once we have cleared and purified the vessel, our very BEING becomes a profound transformative Presence in the world.

Namaste!!!

ELIMOR BADER: “How Many of These Awakening Symptoms Have You Experienced?”

Hand of Light (5).png

A spiritual awakening is an ongoing process whereby a person becomes aware of their connection to the infinite, and becomes mindful of their spiritual nature. 

Many people have the feeling as if something big is going to happen, yet nobody really knows what this big change is going to be. It is starting to reveal itself at the edge of the horizon.

Over the last couple  of decennium, exponentially more people started to feel a bigger affinity towards spirituality. Something is not only changing in the world, but also inside of us. There seems to be a link between those changes. It seems like more people are starting to wake up and experience a so-called ‘spiritual awakening’.

This is a process of letting go of the person they have become, to become the person they are meant to be. Being more perceptive to what is happening within ourselves and to what is happening around us.

A spiritual awakening is for every person different, so is the way a person experiences spirituality and to which degree it influences their life on a daily base.  Some people do not even realize they experience symptoms of a spiritual awakening, because they don’t know how to categorize their experience.

Here is a list of different symptoms which are linked to a spiritual awakening. Which ones these symptoms did you experience or which ones can you recognize?

Extremely vivid and lucid dreams
Ever had the feeling after waking up from a deep sleep, that you were not sure if something really happened or if you dreamt it? These are the extreme vivid dreams. Sometimes you will even find yourself being conscious in a dream. The moment that you realize you are dreaming you can take control of the dream, and experience the infinite possibilities of a lucid dream.

A sudden interest in the paranormal and metaphysical subjects
This sudden interest can help a person evolve and learn more about the truths of the world that are unspoken in the mainstream media. The paranormal and metaphysics can interest everyone in a way that speaks to them personally. Some people are drawn to the side of meditation, crystals, healing and energy work; while others enjoy aliens, conspiracy, technology and government matters. It’s all about finding what resonates with you the most.

Life changing events
This will be an event that will force you to reflect on your life. Most of the time it will be a signal that you have to take things easier and slow down. This can come to every person in a different way.

Some will witness this in the form of a death or loss of a loved one, others a divorce, a loss of a house or job.

In some cases even a burnout. In other words, a life altering event that forces you to re-evaluate your life and makes you see a bigger picture.

The urge to say goodbye to restrictive patterns
You suddenly have an extreme desire to truly start living your life. Everything and everyone that stands in the way of achieving this goal is bound to hear the words ‘goodbye’. This counts for the horrific job that drains the life out of you but also the toxic people that are holding you back. The process of finding yourself and finding out where your true passion lies will make you evolve in the process of spiritual awakening.

Time seems to go faster
The acceleration of time is also a clear symptom, this can be explained by the big events that are occurring in your life. Everything is changing around you and you can’t stop it. The best thing you can do is try to live your life a conscious as possible, acknowledge the ‘now’.

Getting a new perspective on life
When an individual understands that they are infinite and eternal beings, they are able to take a grander perspective.

Suddenly, the problems and issues that are happening in the present moment can be seen for what they really are: temporary, and largely insignificant. This has the effect that you are able to take things less serious.

Synchronicities get noticeable
Synchronicities, or meaningful coincidences, appear more frequently. It is a sign of your intuition and connectedness to everything and everyone. It is a magical phenomenon that lets us know we are open to spiritual guidance and on the right path.

Experiencing ‘oneness’
Synchronicity can be seen as a part of feeling this sensation. The feeling of being part of everything and everything being a part of you. This is a symptom that shows advanced spiritual awakening.
