The Arisen Phoenix Series #5: Mystical Union Becoming More Common



Hello everyone

All kinds of people around the world are becoming able to experience cosmic, mystical union with All That Is, the Omniversal Force of Love that created it all. The circumstances in which an exponentially increasing number of people are able to access their innate ability to tune in with their God essence are so diverse and occurring in so many different types of cultural backgrounds that it is impossible to categorize them. And the "chance", angelic, Light-driven
sources of spiritual stimulations creating situations in which people are offered this unique possibility to transcend the limitations of the flesh and their dampening, restrictive social/cultural/religious programming are also growing exponentially. Not everyone of course is yet initiated into the true ecstatic intensity of what Carmelite nuns call "Unio Mystica", yet as more and more souls remember the lighted inner sacred path towards grand spiritual Oneness with the Universal Reality, it becomes ever more easy for ever more people to slip through the inner barriers that for so long kept the access to this hidden mystical Shangrila restricted to a tiny number of Realized Ones.

But now things are changing - massively!

The fast-paced spiritual evolution of the 21st century is turning all doom and gloom prophecies on their heads and proving that not only miracles are possible but are just a natural part of Who We Are...

Some of this global process is documented in this compilation. You are welcomed to contribute more elements, whether from personal experiences or through written material from others that struck you as right, to future such Arisen Phoenix compilations.

Love and Light are prevailing...

"I was unable to move a muscle and had no desire to. I just lay there and felt. Felt love. Felt peace. Felt joy. Felt beauty. Felt my heart break open and open and open and felt energy, Divine loving healing uplifting energy, pour through my heart and into every part of me. Felt compassion fill my heart to overflowing and tears roll down my cheeks as loving compassion became who I AM and have always been and I remembered and my heart broke and I cried and remembered and embraced this precious gift being given to me."

- Lynn Smith -- Taken from her story about her encounter with Abdy - see below


"I know what you mean when you alternate between the spiritual bliss of the dimensions and then coming back to earth to witness so many atrocities. I have been experiencing the same here. It seems that Pluto in Sagg opposing Venus in Gemini is bringing forth the polarities more than ever--it's pretty intense. I guess we just need to keep sending our love and compassion out into the world. That is the best any of us can do."

Thousands Gather at Stonehenge for Summer Solstice (June 21 - with pictures)
http://news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&u=/nm/20040621/od_nm/britain_stonehenge_dc_2
LONDON (Reuters) - Thousands of druids, revelers and the simply curious witnessed a cloud-obscured sunrise at Stonehenge Monday during an annual pilgrimage to the site to celebrate the summer solstice, the longest day of the year. Wiltshire police said 19,000 people converged on the ancient circle of 20-ton stones on Salisbury Plain in southern England, where they partied through the night until the sun rose over the Heel Stone just before 0400 GMT. A police spokesman said 11 people were arrested, mostly for minor drink and drug offences. Druids, a pagan religious order dating back to Celtic Britain, are drawn to Stonehenge on the longest day of the year, about 160 km (100 miles) west of London, because they believe the stones are a center of spiritualism. Stripping away some of the mystery surrounding the site, British newspapers reported Monday that archaeologists have unearthed 4,000 year-old skeletons of men who helped transport the massive stones from west Wales. "For the first time we have found the mortal remains of one of the families who were almost certainly involved in this monumental task," said Andrew Fitzpatrick of Wessex Archaeology. The site is open to the public throughout the year but the solstice allows revelers a rare opportunity to touch the massive stones and walk among them. This year's crowd numbers were down from a record 28,000 who braved chilly temperatures at the site last year. Scholars say the circle was built between 3000 and 1600 BCE as a temple, burial ground, astronomical calendar or for a variety of spiritual and earthly purposes

Stonehenge rang to the sound of jungle drums and jazz saxophone yesterday as thousands thronged the monument to mark the summer solstice.About 21,000 braved chilly temperatures see the sun rising between the stones. Wiltshire Police made a "handful" of arrests for public order offences.The Druid leader "King Arthur Pendragon" presided, standing amid a ring of torches overshadowed by a pair of giant horns, lit by burning branches. He said: "The fire symbolically welcomes the sun for the longest day of the year, part of the seasonal wheel which we as druids and pagans celebrate."Peter Carson, English Heritage's head of Stonehenge, said: "We are delighted people have been able to enjoy the solstice in a safe and peaceful manner."

BLT RESEARCH TEAM INC.
http://www.bltresearch.com/
PURPOSE: The BLT Research Team Inc.'s primary focus is crop circle research - the discovery, scientific documentation and evaluation of physical changes induced in plants, soils and other materials at crop circle sites by the energy (or energy system) responsible for creating them and to determine, if possible, from these data the specific nature and source of these energies. Secondly, our intent is to publish these research results in peer-reviewed scientific journals and to disseminate this information to the general public through lectures, mainstream articles and the internet. LT Inc. is comprised of several hundred trained field-sampling personnel in the U.S., Canada and Europe who collect plant and soil samples at crop circle sites for analyses by a number of scientists in various disciplines. CLIP

PLANT ABNORMALITIES
http://www.bltresearch.com/plantab.html
The physical changes (listed below) documented in crop circle plants by Michigan biophysicist W.C. Levengood have been determined by evaluating hundreds of sample plants -- both downed and standing -- taken from inside the overall perimeter of each formation against hundreds of control plants taken at varying distances outside each formation, in several directions. More than 250 individual crop formations from multiple countries, over a 10-year period were examined in-depth. Although many of the formations studied were relatively "simple" in overall design and/or relatively "small" in overall size (primarily because of BLT's financial and/or personnel limitations, particularly in Europe), many larger and more "complex" formations -- those whose overall design included intricate geometric shapes with multiple design elements of varying sizes -- are represented here. CLIP

Crop Circle Science
http://www.bltresearch.com/otherfacts.html
Historical Indications That Crop Circles Are Not "New": Although most people think of the cropcircles as a modern phenomenon (and wonder if modern technology may be responsible), there is some evidence that the circles have been appearing off-and-on for hundreds of years. Here are a few of the best-documented accounts: CLIP (...) Light Phenomena: Ever since people began paying attention to crop circles strange balls of light (BOLs), frequently softball-size but sometimes smaller or larger, have been regularly seen, photographed and/or videotaped in and around the fields the circles historically are known to frequent. These BOLs are seen in daytime as well as at night, and have now been observed (and in many cases videotaped) in every country where crop circles are studied. (...) Each summer reports come in from farmers, research field-personnel and the general public of bizarre--and clearly visible--light phenomena which seem to be involved in the creation of new crop circles. Over the years these witnesses have reported balls of light, discs of light, and/or columns of light over fields in which new formations are subsequently found. One spectacular case, which occurred in the Netherlands in August of 2001, was witnessed by BLT President, Nancy Talbott, and Robbert v/d Broeke, a young Dutchman who has observed multiple unusual light phenomena in association with the creation of new crop circles over the last several years. In this case, "tubes" or "columns" of brilliant white light were observed by both witnesses, from slightly different vantage points, to descend from above with enormous force into a stringbean field--inspection of the field within minutes revealed a new crop formation in precisely the location in the field apparently impacted by "tubes" of light. In England in the late 1980s and early 1990s sightings of soccer-ball-sized orangey light balls, drifting over the valleys and fields near Alton Barnes at night, were observed so often they were dubbed "Amber Gamblers" by local observers. Smaller, tennis-ball-size, almost translucent BOLS have been both photographed (see below) and videotaped, and they have been seen and documented in various degrees of opacity and in different colors. CLIP LOTS more at http://www.bltresearch.com/otherfacts.html

MAGNETIC MATERIAL IN SOILS
http://www.bltresearch.com/magnetic.html
In 1993 a crop formation at Cherhill, England was discovered in which some of the epicenter plants were coated with an iron "glaze," composed of fused particles of apparent meteoritic origin. This coating consisted of comingled iron oxides (hematite and magnetite) fused into a heterogeneous mass, which was actually embedded in some of the plant tissue.  (...) After this 1993 discovery, regular soil sampling was instituted at most crop circles sampled by the BLT Team. Subsequently, tiny 10-40 micron diameter spheres (and/or partially ablated particles) of unusually pure iron have been regularly found in soils from crop circle sites. Sometimes clusters of these very small, perfectly spherical, magnetic particles are found; sometimes larger spheres (40-50 microns in diameter), which are strongly magnetic, are discovered adhering to bits of soil covered, or inter-mixed, with a partially-melted glaze of the same material. Photomicrograph (100 X) of 10-40 micron diameter, spherical, magnetic particles of the type regularly found in crop circle soils. EDS reveals these spheres to be pure iron; the fact that they are magnetized reveals they were formed in a magnetic field. Most often these magnetized spherical particles are found clustered around, or just outside, the perimeters of circular crop formations, suggesting that centrifugal force from a spinning vortex is distributing this material to the edges of the formations. We have seen cases, however, where the major deposition of this material is in the soil at the centers of the circles, the amounts then dropping off toward the perimeters. And we have instances where the magnetic material is deposited linearly, usually in increasing amounts as one samples out toward the perimeters of the circles, again suggesting a rotating force as the distribution agent.

Teleportation breakthrough made (16 June, 2004)
http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/science/nature/3811785.stm
In the past, teleportation has only been possible with particles of light Image: Rainer BlattScientists have performed successful teleportation on atoms for the first time, the journal Nature reports. The feat was achieved by two teams of researchers working independently on the problem in the US and Austria. The ability to transfer key properties of one particle to another without using any physical link has until now only been achieved with laser light. Experts say being able to do the same with massive particles like atoms could lead to new superfast computers. This development is a long way from the transporters used by Jean-Luc Picard and Captain Kirk in the famous Star Trek TV series. (...) The landmark experiments are being viewed as a major advance in the quest to achieve ultra-fast computers, inside which teleportation could provide a form of invisible "quantum wiring". These machines would be able to handle far bigger and more complex loads than today's super-computers, and at many times their speed.

Hi Jean,

Thanks for reminding me that we’re all here because we wanted and asked to be here in order to fully experience the manifested reality rather than living “in permanent bliss of unmanifested reality.”

Personal Voices: Is Bush the Anti-Buddha?

By Allan Hunt Badiner, AlterNet

May 18, 2004

A Buddhist confronts his anger towards the president. How does a student of the Dharma deal with the rising temptation to wish ill on the perpetrators of shocking and detestable undertakings?


When George W. Bush mouths the word "compassion" chills dart up my spine. Anyone paying attention can easily see how the actions of the Bush regime reflect a distinct lack of empathy and understanding. This is an administration bent on blatant paybacks to friends and contributors at everyone else's expense. Its single truth: What is good for extractive profits is good for the country. Trees and caribou don't contribute cash so Bush's environmental policy opens majestic old growth forests for commercial logging and protected wilderness areas for domestic oil exploration. His foreign policy confuses justice with punishment, disagreement with treachery, and cultural differences with evil. He willingly risks escalating and perpetuating a continuous cycle of global violence.

Bush's regime is a disgraceful manifestation of the nefarious crony capitalism that the Presidents Roosevelt - Theodore and Franklin - used their administrations to combat. His vows of "No Child Left Behind," and his recent but forgotten AIDS initiative in Africa tell all, as does his underfunded plan to expand AmeriCorps and his promises to clean up carbon monoxide poisoning while increasing the pollution rights of the corporations that fund him. He cuts taxes, then drives the Federal Government from surplus to its greatest debt in history, robbing future citizens to pay the bill. Taking and sending for Bush is not about tonglen (giving and receiving) but monetary and political favors.

Compassion, according to Bush, is allowing utility plants to upgrade their infrastructure without the pollution abatements previously required by law when, according to the National Academy of Sciences, 50,000 American children are born every year with brains damaged by prenatal exposure to methyl mercury compounds from fossil-fuel and industrial air pollution. And adding insult to injury, Bush and his minions spend their holidays shooting innocent creatures - bird, fox and deer hunting not for supper but for sport.

Thai Buddhist professor Sulak Sivaraksa likens Bush to Hitler and Stalin, arguing that his declaration of an 'Axis of Evil,' Hitler's 'Final Solution,' and Stalin's pogrom of peasants were actually similar attempts "to perfect the world by destroying its [perceived] impurities." Bush has withdrawn the U.S. from nearly all cooperative efforts for the planet like international treaties for nuclear disarmament, and initiatives like the Kyoto Accord to abate climate instability. Even if Bush does not win reelection, or otherwise get elected, the damage he has done will live on in the form of zealots in judicial robes that will set misguided legal precedents for hundreds of years. His is the zealotry and the extremism that Shakyamuni Buddha spent his life defining as the cause of suffering.

How does a student of the Dharma deal with the rising temptation to wish ill will on the perpetrators of such shocking and detestable undertakings? To the specter of four more years of Bush, what is an appropriate Buddhist response?

While it's important to recognize the full scope of the damage generated by this President and his cronies, and understandable to feel bitter, the Dharma clearly counsels us against hating our enemies. As Buddhists, we can assume that Bush-hating doesn't help anyone. Buddhist philosophy is centered on non-duality, the unity of all things, so we must concede that we ourselves are not separate from the corruption and unprincipled behavior of those who represent us. It is in fact an old political axiom that people get the government they deserve.

As Thich Nhat Hanh might say, the Bush Regime is made up of non-Bush elements, and there are Bush-like behaviors in every family, and in every mind. Hated by the Viet Cong for being CIA and by the CIA for being Viet Cong, Nhat Hanh is famously loved for his plea that we transform anger through meditation and heal it by putting our loving kindness into practical action. Martin Luther King Jr. taught that true nonviolence means "you not only refuse to shoot a man, but you refuse to hate him." "If we could read the secret history of our enemies," Longfellow reminded us, "we should find in each man's life sorrow and suffering enough to disarm all hostility."

Bush deserves our appreciation because he gives us a need to practice and thus to progress along the path. The Dalai Lama often speaks of the Chinese with gratitude, saying they have given him the "unavoidable opportunity" to practice compassion and cultivate forgiveness and understanding. Zen-Benedictine Brother David Steindl-Rast and Joan Halifax Roshi teach radical gratefulness, which posits that in every difficult or painful circumstance there is an opportunity for gratitude. Adversity can show us how well we have mastered our minds, how far along the path we have progressed.

Asked how those in the dharma should respond to times like these, and how they should live their lives in a world where evil runs like an open sewer, the great Tibetan master Thrangu Rinpoche said "You must counter the negative energy with as much positive thought and action as you can possibly muster. You must unceasingly sustain Bodhisattva action." It is the Buddha's teaching to make of ourselves an example, a light, a beacon. What a practice opportunity has been thrust upon us!

This opens the possibility that the consequence of our long suffering in the realm of the Bush regime will be a complacent body politic that wakes up. The bold and unrepentant corroding of the core principles of justice, fairness and personal liberty that made this nation great, could make people feel an urgent need for a U-turn. The Bush years could be the threshold to another great society, an era of great compassion in which elected officials become representatives of the people again and restore the environment, reinvigorate social programs, and bring fairness and integrity back to government.

Meanwhile, Bush's approval ratings are still high for many Americans. Thwarted in their samsaric longings and impotent in their daily grind, they admire the macho cowboy image and identify with the "regular guy" quality of their leader. As the California election of Arnold Schwarzenegger has again shown us, people have difficulty separating virtual reality from real life, entertainment from existence. The mind is easily clouded by confusion, ignorance and projection.

The consistent unskillfulness of the Bush government makes it tempting to confuse evil and ignorance. Buddhism observes that people are not inherently evil - even if their behavior has that appearance. "Like a blind man in a room full of deaf people." is how Ex-U.S. Treasury secretary Paul O'Neil describes a surprisingly disengaged Bush during cabinet meetings. The Bush sangha, i.e., Cheney, Rumsfeld etc., have taken refuge in an old and outdated vision of the world, one hopelessly Cartesian, self-referential, and completely lacking awareness of interconnection, cause and effect, and certainly the true meaning of compassion.

Just after 9/11, anxious to do what he could to prevent all out war, the Dalai Lama broke with a long tradition of not commenting on the internal affairs of other nations and wrote to Bush. "It may seem presumptuous on my part," said His Holiness, "but I personally believe we need to think seriously whether a violent action is the right thing to do and in the greater interest of the nation and people in the long run." His Holiness stressed to Bush how "violence will only increase the cycle of violence." He suggested the American President deal with the root causes of such senseless violence: hatred and anger. Bush didn't get it. "The Bush administration simply doesn't trust smart people," says Harvard lawyer Alan Dershowitz. "It's anti-intellectual by nature, and it doesn't even want to hear their advice."

Given the countless Iraqis and over 4,000 Americans killed or injured - not in self-defense but in cold blood, and given the enablement of pollution, the trees and animals hurried into extinction, can we even begin to calculate the negative karma Bush & Co. are mounting? But if Buddha could forgive and even ordain Angulimala, whom the sutras say viciously killed thousands of innocent people with his own hands, then can George W. Bush be beyond our forgiveness and compassion? And didn't the great Tibetan yogi Milarepa practice black magic and kill people before he turned his mind so magnificently to the dharma?

George W. Bush is unfortunately no Angulimala or Milarepa who were able to overcome, to awaken to the unskillfulness of their actions and repent the loss of life they caused. In fact, Bush may be the closest we can come to an anti-Buddha: a global poster-boy for profound ignorance. We can use him in our visualizations. We can breath in his confusion and breath out to him our clarity. We can also get out on the campaign trail for candidates who more closely represent that first precept: Do no harm. Sit and breathe contemplating this and see if you feel called to volunteer on voter-registration drives.

Mindful that the real source of American power does not come from its superior war machine but from its constitution, its leadership in the global community, its democracy and its history of respect for human rights, George Bush has seriously weakened America. For this he deserves no praise, only reproach. But my practice has helped me prevent any grim imaginings in his regard. When I'm stricken with unskillful thoughts about the President, I immediately focus on the words of the Buddha: "Hatred can never put an end to hatred, love alone can. This is the unalterable law."

Now my visualizations are of bearing witness to a panoply of devas and gods, the Boddhisatva Avalokitesvara, and countless rows of Buddha's and Bodhisattvas throughout space and time sitting in the clouds and celebrating Bush's retirement from the Oval Office and his safe return to Crawford, Texas.

Then I close with two healing mantras in rapid succession: "May all beings be happy and free from suffering - even Bush" "May all beings be happy - and freed from Bush."

Evidence of Explosives In The Twin Tower Collapses (Incontrovertible proof!)
http://members.fortunecity.com/911/wtc/tower-explosions.htm
The evidence that the World Trade Center towers were demolished is compelling. Photographs of explosives detonating during the collapse of both the north and south towers are presented below. They are taken from two (publicly available) videos of the collapses. Each frame has been numbered by its position in the video. Both videos were filmed at 30 frames per second, so an eight frame interval covers about one quarter of a second. The most remarkable aspect of the World Trade Center towers demolition, is that such obvious evidence of the use of explosives, has been completely ignored by the media. This refusal to report the obvious, clearly illustrates that the "free press" is free, only in name, and anything but free in reality. That such obvious evidence of explosives has remained "hidden in full view" approaches the unbelievable.

Date: 18 May 2004

Hi Jean

Thank you so much for that absolutely inspiring and awesome newsletter!! So much there that i could feel in my heart ......... and two especially resonated with me - that of Dr George Rodonaia and also Kiara Windrider’s piece on enlightenment - THANK YOU all for those.

I am moved to share with you my experience after attending a session with a wonderful humble man called Abdy [refer http://www.Abdy.info if you would like to find out more about his work and reconnection us with the Divine Heart Divine Consciousness] ....... Abdy is an Iranian man who lives in Canada - you may have heard of him or met him Jean?? Anyway what follows is my attempt to put into words my experience, which Kiara's article on enlightenment so eloquently describes after his experience at the ashram:

And as you can see from what i write - i have done my best to be truthful - that is, to share all of what was going through my mind and my heart from start to finish ...... so yes there are certainly parts which read and are written from the small ego self .......

if you are so moved, i give permission for you to share this article around. This is really my 'diary' of what occurred.

Thank you so much Jean for being you!!

“Through Abdy comes an energy that expands an individual's consciousness to its fullest potential, speeding up the human evolutionary process and opening up new ways of being. Now the transmission of this energy is occurring through me to others. People I have spoken with have had huge breakthroughs and been able to deal with things in a new way. I now am aware that there is nothing we have to do, we just have to be, and then God does magic through us.”

- Panache -- Taken from http://www.Abdy.info/

“Abdy works with the Christ energy – a bridging consciousness that aligns the consciousness of man to the consciousness of the Divine. The power that Abdy anchors, that he is conduit for, aligns people to the presence of the Divine – to the Divine’s mind, to the Divine’s heart, to the Divine Spirit, wherever the person needs to connect to at that particular moment in time. This brings about healings, alignments, realizations, transformations and advancements – as they are required. It can activate the Christ Light within.”

Meeting Abdy, Sunday 29th February, 2004 at Woolloongabba

by Lynn Smith, March 2004

My meeting with Abdy, a humble and gentle Iranian man who brings through the Christ energy, facilitating individuals‚ alignment with Divine Will, Divine Love or Divine Consciousness, has been a life changing and momentous experience. Who is Abdy and how did I find out about him? Well first things first. I had been down South‚ at Christmas with my family - a real gathering as my 3 children and I hadn't celebrated Christmas and my birthday [Christmas day] together in about 5 years, and all 4 of my grandchildren were there too along with the matriarch of the family, my mum. And woooooow I turned 50 then too. So it was a pretty momentous holiday.

Anyway when I returned to Brisbane I caught up with my soul-sister Jo. She told me about this fellow who had something to do with the Christ Consciousness and that another mutual friend, Caroline, had told her about him and that he would be in visiting Brisbane sometime soon and that he was supposed to be absolutely amazing and very humble and wow wouldn't it be great to go and meet him? Well having been sort of out-of-touch for the past 4 weeks, I didn't know what or whom she was talking about so I rang Caroline to get the lowdown and she didn't have heaps of information then either. Then one Friday night we just happened to be chatting on the phone and Caroline told me that this man called Abdy, who channels the Christ Consciousness energy, was going to be at Woolloongabba that weekend and that she and some work colleagues were going along and that even if you didn't have the money he wasn't turning anyone away. I got the contact information and address off her and made my call and what she told me about Abdy, his work and how he charged for what he did was confirmed by the kind man on the phone.

Now for me that in itself spoke volumes because I believe in my heart that if Spirit is really working through us then no matter how big or small a teacher‚ we are, we don't limit who is eligible‚ or ineligible‚ to attend courses or workshops or events according to the size of their bank balances. I believe that if someone truly desires to participate, and is genuinely coming from their heart, then so be it. My way of working is if someone has the money to, then they pay full fees, if they are a student or on a pension or whatever, then a reduced rate is fair, and for those who have been in the position I found myself in that weekend, almost penniless, well a gift of love can always be paid forward by them to some other person!! No! I don't believe that this is devaluing myself, my gifts, my time or that of Spirit. In fact I believe that it is a very Western cultural belief to think that if you are meant to go to something then you will have, find or be given the money to do so and that you are in some way unworthy or unready if the money doesn't materialize. What about all the folk in third world countries - are they unworthy of attaining healing or alignment with the Divine by virtue of the fact that they are financially poor? I don't believe so!

Knowing that I did not at that stage have the money to pay either the $50 full fee or $30 concession rates, I placed my trust in what was meant to be would be and went off to my regular healing Sunday event excusing myself around midday so that I could go and meet this Abdy. I had no idea what to expect. I still knew nothing much about him or how this event was to work‚ what people were supposed to do or anything. I only knew a time, a place and to bring a cushion. So off I went - which for me around Brisbane can be somewhat of a magical mystery tour as I frequently end up taking a very scenic route to get to my destination. Spirit blessed and guided me and I got there quickly and easily. I went up to the table and explained my situation and prepared to hand over all the money I had on me: $15 in notes and $3 in coin... the lovely lady at the table [Abdy's fiancée as it turned out] looked up at me and smiled reassuringly only taking the notes then gave me some info on Abdy. Caroline's best friend, who had told her about Abdy was there and invited me to sit with her & her partner which I politely declined as I wanted to be in my own space, to just be and see what happened. I was still a bit all over the place having returned from down South and not having a permanent home, feeling insecure and unsure of where I was meant to be, of where my home was... and a part of me was feeling a little guilty too because I hadn't tried to get Jo there to meet Abdy too. I had no money to pay for her as she is usually less affluent than me and she also had her son that weekend and. so a little bit of anxiety and a little guilt was roiling around in me.

I found a seat in the far corner of the hall and just sat there clutching my cushion and wondering what would happen next and what did we have to do. Then I thought no, no expectations, just go with the flow and allow what is meant to be to happen. Two ladies came and sat over from me and kind of looked me up and down - I felt sort of self-conscious as though I was being judged and found lacking [more my stuff rather than theirs I'm sure]. Then this man, quiet and unassuming came over and sat between us and started to play with the stereo. And oh was the music that day divine or what????? The man turned out to be Abdy. He patiently and quietly answered the questions the two ladies put to him. It turned out that they had been to see him here the night before, and on the Gold Coast. He answered their questions and my fumbled ones and looked around the hall as the seats started to fill up. At that stage there was nothing outwardly showy about him, just a lovely gentle energy emanating from an unassuming man who seemed to me to be staying calm within and who admitted that yes at times he did find that the energy he channels does knock him around physically. Did I feel any great surges or outpouring of energy from him at this stage - no.

More and more people came into the hall - around 60 of us gathered together to experience what Abdy brings through on a very hot and humid Queensland day - the 29th of February, 2004 no less. And yes this had been almost a directive from Spirit to me that I was to attend on the 29th. This unique day was in some way significant for me. Finally Abdy got up and moved to the centre of the hall and quietly addressed the audience saying that he is a man of few and sometimes no words. He told us that whatever we felt like doing while we were there was okay. He believes that there is no positive or negative energy. Abdy's truth is that energy is energy and that its essentially neither good nor bad you can't have a positive cushion or a negative cushion can you‚ he said, you can only have, or not have, a cushion. Energy is energy and only gets a value [ascribed to it] because we do or do not resonate with it. Mmmmm that was a different way of addressing a controversial topic. Then he explained that he is not Christ nor does he pretend to be. He said that he brings through energy of the Christ Consciousness that allows each individual to experience exactly what they need to in terms of either Divine Mind, Divine Spirit or the Divine Heart. He assured us that everyone present would get the healing, attunement and/or alignment with whichever aspects of the Divine that was right for them in that NOW and in the way they needed to do it.

Clearly one who prefers to let the Divine come through and do what is to be done rather than prattling on about what he does, Abdy quickly explained with a gentle and knowing smile on his face that some folk might think that nothing had happened to them and they may get angry. In fact Abdy said, the emotion that they were expressing, such as anger, was the embodiment of what they were there to do and experience because typically people who became angry after he touched them were there to feel, heal and release their suppressed anger and perhaps other emotions too. Others were there to learn and experience different things so each of us was free to do what we needed to do for ourselves. The only thing he asked to refrain from doing was talking while we waited our turn and after we returned to our seats - in other words to be respectful of others and the space they were in.

Quietly, a little nervously, I sat and waited for my turn at ??????? what I still didn't know. In fact, when first talking with Jo about what this person {Abdy} may or may not do, I had been afraid that if I went along to whatever it was he did, that maybe I wouldn't be picked. I was afraid that if I wasn't it was because I was in some way unworthy or lacking or whatever and a small mean spirited part of me didn't want others to get picked and for me to miss out. Yes more self-judgement and limiting thoughts, more not living in the NOW and more creating potential scenarios that weren't reflecting the best most wonderful experience I truly deserve to have. Remembering this, I sat in the church hall and while I waited I asked myself what did I most want to experience. Of course I already KNEW the answer because this was what I have been working with for most of last year as I really got to know more and more of myself even those apparently less than lovely bits. What I truly desired was to experience a deeper opening of my heart to the Divine Heart, to feel and allow the opening of my sacred Heart to unconditional love, inner peace and acceptance and thus to Divine Spirit. So I sat and focused on that. And what kept on coming into my mind was how may I be of service Goddess/God?‚ repeated by the true me, my soul-self, over and over.

I watched as Abdy walked over to someone and asked them to come over to him with their pillow or cushion. He selected and embraced a lady first, touching her around the heart area, and she went out to it‚ very quickly and without struggle. Then he chose and hugged another person, touching them on the forehead, and they too went to sleep‚ falling into the arms of the volunteer catcher who helped Abdy to lay them gently onto the floor with their head on their cushion. Abdy told us that for those of us who had issues with control‚ we might find it difficult to trust and allow ourselves to fall‚ into the arms of the catcher behind us - and not to worry because if we didn't trust and fall‚ then he would just push us anyway ;-).

After about the 5th or 6th person I noticed that while some of them were wriggling all about, others were holding up their arms or just lying there passively. I watched and waited silently chanting may you be happy, may you be peaceful‚ for a time and then that question began repeating itself from my heart to the Divine: How may I be of Service?‚ Since there were so many folk present I thought that it would be ages before it was my turn so I stayed focused within yet observing without. To my surprise Abdy came and pointed to me after about 10 or so others. I picked up my cushion and walked out to the center of the room. He then took me in his arms and embraced me.

I haven't often felt that kind of an embrace. The kind of embrace where a person truly opens their heart and soul to you. The kind of hug where you and they seem to melt into each other and you really feel and know that they are hugging you with unconditional love and light - a divine hug in every sense as all barriers, all distinctions of separation, man and woman, man and man, woman and woman dissolve and you and the one you are hugging truly become one being. I melted, dissolved and merged with the Divine in that moment. When I hug others that is how I hug - heart body mind and soul, a real hug not an air‚ hug. Some of my friends hug like this too and what a gift of the heart it is. As he hugs you, Abdy touches you on the third eye, or throat or heart ... not a gentle touch, rather firm and assured and yes, to the point. I felt as though a huge current of energy was coursing through me. Then he focused on my necklaces before putting his other hand onto first my pentagram necklace and then onto the turquoise, coral and silver feather necklace I made, attuning and aligning them with the energy of the Divine too.

And when I fell‚ backwards into the catcher's arms it was like floating. I felt so light and feather-like. I'm not sure that I can adequately convey in words what happened once I was gently laid on the floor. I was aware of my body and its weight. I was aware of my mind and thoughts and their weight. I was aware of everyone else in the room. I was unable to move a muscle and had no desire to. I just lay there and felt. Felt love. Felt peace. Felt joy. Felt beauty. Felt my heart break open and open and open and felt energy, Divine loving healing uplifting energy, pour through my heart and into every part of me. Felt compassion fill my heart to overflowing and tears roll down my cheeks as loving compassion became who I AM and have always been and I remembered and my heart broke and I cried and remembered and embraced this precious gift being given to me.

The pain of my heart opening was exquisite and real. It hurt and yet it felt so good such a relief to free myself from the shackles of not knowing and not really feeling. I have always thought of myself as a loving, generous and compassionate person and soul. My family and friends described me this way too. Well there on that floor in that hall I remembered what being unconditionally loving and loved and compassionate really felt like and I was both ecstatically joyous and afraid that my heart wrenching sobs would escape and somehow spoil the moment for myself and for those around me.

Then I heard, over and over and over as my heart enlarged and expanded with the unconditional love and compassion pouring through me, my soul asking how might I be of service to all and with/for Goddess/God? And the answer I heard was the words 'be the Madonna, you are the Madonna, be the unconditional love and compassion that you are. Be the Magdalene ... you are the Madonna Magdalene'. A part of me wondered if this was my ego playing its tricks. The greater part knew and knows now that this was my Divine Self. I was reminding me that I too am Divine and that part of my role is to bring through the Divine Feminine in all Her aspects including that of the Mother - the Madonna - what the Jewish folk refer to as Shekinah the Feminine aspect of the Creator. Later when I was back sitting on my chair watching Abdy I knew that I could and had done what he was doing - reconnecting people with the Divine through loving healing compassionate touch. His gift is to reconnect and align us with the Divine Masculine, mine is with the Divine Feminine. How? Well that is still to be revealed but I can feel the energy building in my heart and hands and feet.

After a time I felt like I was coming out of that other‚ space - and how do I describe that space‚ I was in? It was all space and no space and everything and no-thing - and I remember thinking no, not yet please not yet, there is more yet please let him touch me one more time‚ and tears flowing down my cheeks. I had noticed that as Abdy worked his way around the group, I was aware of where he was, so I wasn't really surprised when I opened‚ my eyes with my request still in my mind, and he came over to me, looked down and sort of frowned, then pressed his palm to my third eye once more and I was gone‚ again. There but not there. And grateful for the chance to finish my alignment with the Divine Heart, the Divine Spirit and Divine Will, with compassion and unconditional love.

I don't know how long I lay on the floor. Finally, I felt guided to get up and return to my seat. I was in a kind of cocoon or bubble of energy. I can't quite explain how I felt. I later emailed Abdy to thank him for what he is doing: Words do not adequately describe the outpouring and inpouring of love which filled me. My heart mind body and soul were awash and afloat in unconditional love and compassion as I felt my sacred heart open wider and wider. I was aware of the interconnectedness between me and every person I love and care for. I was acutely aware of their presence there with me in that hall even though physically my family and friends are living elsewhere. I was aware of the love and interconnectedness of every being across and within Mother Earth and the Earth Mother Herself. And I was aware across all levels of my Being of the love, the pure love without strings or conditions attached to it, that the Divine has for each and every one of us, no matter how unworthy we may think ourselves to be.

The TRUTH is that we are all LOVED and that we are all DIVINE - each and every one of us is an embodied expression of Goddess/God on the Earth and elsewhere. I was so aware of everyone and everything. I was part of everyone there and everything everywhere. I simultaneously felt like even the empty spaces around me were tangible and had substance and yet that everything had no substance. And I felt as though I was wrapped in cotton wool but not in a fragile sense. It was more like there were no edges or boundaries between me or anyone or anything else - all that wasn't light and love had dissolved. Everything was so connected. Everything flowed together in some kind of rhythmic dance of energy and love was the glue, love and compassion. I sat on my chair and allowed compassion and love to flow freely through me. Then I noticed that the lady who had been touched first was moving around doing some type of energy work with others who were still laying on the floor. Some of these people seemed to be really suffering and were thrashing about or had tears rolling down their faces as they sobbed with body wrenching cries.

And my heart opened to them and I felt guided to get up and to be of Service. I went to those I was drawn to and laid my hands on their faces or heads, or held their hands and allowed love and compassion to flow through me giving them peace and love and support as guided by the Divine. A few opened their eyes and seemed reassured then went back‚ with greater ease to where they needed to be. Others stayed where they were but now relaxed into the moment and experience, and still others let go and let love in. Yes I could feel and sense some of what each experienced and my role was to be loving compassion to assist them to allow themselves to BE all that they are. With each one I touched and channelled it was as though we became One.

And for each I did what I could to let them know‚ that we don't have to suffer because Jeshua did that for us 2000 years ago. Now, as He showed me in a vision when He appeared before me in my room a couple of years ago, Jeshua wants all of us and Himself to be taken down off the Cross. Goddess/God intends for us to enjoy life, not martyr ourselves to suffering it. I discovered while in that hall with the Divine, Abdy and the others that when you are in that space of bliss, nirvana or enlightenment - you choose the label - you KNOW without any doubt whatsoever that Goddess/God DOES NOT AND NEVER DID INTEND FOR US TO SUFFER. When you are in that space, the void, the womb of Creation, all you feel, all you know is PURE TOTAL UNCONDITIONAL LOVE AND PEACE and a quiet acceptance of All That Is. And you float, you really do float in that space.

I'm not sure how many I worked with. It was as though my body just floated to where I was guided to go. My hair felt like it became the veils of the Magdalene and the Madonna, and at times I could have used my hair to wipe the feet and faces of those I worked with as a gesture of love, honor and respect not subservience. After a while I went back to my seat. A lady who hadn't been touched yet pointed to another lady saying I think she needs your help. It was one of the 2 women I had thought were sort of looking down their noses at me because I didn't have lots of spiritual tickets so to speak. I wasn't sure how this woman would feel if I went up to her. Then I remembered or was reminded: how may I be of service? So I went over to her and laid my hands on her cheeks and soothed her and moved her hands to her heart. She opened her eyes and cried as she recognized me and nodded her thanks then I channelled some loving messages to her and moved on. Her name is Pamela and we have kept in touch and I am honored to have done some incredible healing work and attunements with her prior to her departure for Peru - thank you Pamela and Spirit for your trust.

I continued to be guided to move around the group and work with whomever my heart felt drawn to. One was Lilly, a lady who is passionate about life and lives it her way. Another was a person who seemed to be undergoing a huge and cathartic experience that had their body twitching and flailing all over the place. Still another was a beautiful pagan looking woman who, when I went over to her, had tears flowing down her cheeks. I was guided to just gently stroke her cheeks and her hands in a loving and compassionate way as I spoke in [channelled] the Pleiadian Star energies to her. It was like a spark of recognition shot through her and she spoke back to me in the language of love that is the Pleiades. She later confided to me that she had been channelling on and off for a couple of years and that it had scared her because she didn't really know what it was. Now she finally knew in her heart that it was okay because she could feel the loving peace and joy coming through - and what a fun reunion we had some weeks later! Thank you Spirit I LOVE this work.

I don't know how long we were all together in that room. We started at around 1.30 and even now I am not sure when we all finally returned to our seats. When he had attended to everyone there, Abdy lay down on the floor and the lady he had first worked with and some others went over to him and started doing healing for/with him. I so wanted to get up and go over and lay my hands on his feet - to touch him like I hadn't been allowed to touch Jeshua's while he hung on the cross, to send him my strength and love. Another lady was apparently feeling like she wanted to help too so she went over and sent energy up his legs without actually touching Abdy's feet. After she went back to her seat I still felt drawn to go and touch his feet. So gathering up my courage I went over and knelt down beside my friends‚ and lay my hands along the soles of Abdy's feet. I felt as though my hands were burning the energy pouring through them was so strong. It felt as though the energy flowing through melded us together and I have noticed since then that when I do a healing with someone, that my hands, my heart chakra and my feet all seem to be burning with the energy that flows through. The heat seems to be dissolving the barriers between me and those I work with. Even thinking or talking about anything to do with the heart or love or healing or compassion seems to be having this effect on me - my heart is breaking and opening and the experience continues to hold me in awe.

Finally it was time for us all to come back‚ so to help the two men still laying on the floor, Abdy played music featuring the sounds of little children laughing out loud and clearly having fun. We all laughed too. Then Abdy encouraged us to celebrate our experiences in whatever way we felt like. Many of us got up and danced and swayed to the music and my thanks to Lilly for reminding how much fun it is to be a woman and to celebrate with belly dancing. Then I embraced Abdy and thanked him for what he is doing. Lilly and I hugged each other too and she thanked me for working with her. Others whom I had worked with also came up to hug and thank me and we swapped cards and numbers and promised to keep in touch. We even wrote down the names of some of the cd's that had been played as these really helped to take you elsewhere. Then I went over to the lady {Kathy] who first inspired me to be brave and to get up and do what I felt called to do. I thanked her and she seemed surprised. Then she surprised me by asking me to keep on doing what I was doing and to keep on allowing the energies I was working with to flow freely through me. Wow that stunned me and I thanked her for the gift that she had just given me.

When Abdy smilingly farewelled us and reminded us that he will be returning to Australia around June, he looked, really looked at several people. When I had first seen him, I recognized‚ him from the times of Jeshua, when I was an aspect of the Magdalene and he one of the disciples. Now as he looked deep into my eyes I felt an incredible reconnection and recognition. A soul deep understanding that we knew‚ each other once more and that we will work together again. I looked around the hall and saw that everyone was smiling and seemed to have a quiet radiance glowing about them to greater and lesser degrees.

For sometime afterwards in the everyday world I continued to float and to look around me with a very different set of eyes and to feel with my heart opened and ready to be shattered a 1000 times without fear because I KNOW that behind it all is pure unconditional love. And yes, if you still have your stuff to go through like me, then you do eventually come bumping back to Earth so to speak. And what did I learn? That even though I'd rather be in that space of tranquil love, I know its always there inside of me. I find that more and more frequently I am able to tap into it again, to bring to the NOW. So its kind of okay to do the human thing some more knowing that each time I open up to love without fear, knowing that yes I may be hurt‚ again, I am actually becoming more and more consciously reconnected with the Divine as I strip away the stuff that isn't really me.

My experience of the Divine Feminine flowing through me showed me that as we allow unconditional love and compassion to flow through and heal us, we are being given physical proof that we really are still connected to the Divine Source because you can't NOT feel unconditional love and compassion. Some of us may react with love and joy to the experience. Others with fear because they haven't really experienced love without strings attached but however we respond, we will and do know that we have been touched by it because of the irrevocable impact it has on our hearts and the ways in which our physical minds and bodies react. In that hall I was reminded too that we have the power to co-create our world our universe and our lives through the conscious use of our free will. And that's what we were all doing there in the Trinity church hall in Woolloongabba, reconnecting with our own Divinity and that of the Universal Divine Feminine and Masculine as we bathed in the love of the Divine.

NOTE FROM JEAN: After informing Lynn on June 18 that I had finally been able to read her story and that I was going to network it, she replied with the following letter:

From: "Lynn Smith" lynnasmith2002@hotmail.com>
Subject: Thank you and an update on my most recent encounter with Abdy
Date: 19 Jun 2004

Hello Jean

Here i sit, sobbing my eyes and heart out as i read your email - THANK YOU MORE THAN I KNOW HOW TO SAY, THANK YOU IN A 1000 1000 WAYS!!!!!!

As synchronicity and the Great Divine would have it - last night, perhaps even as you were emailing me, i had the great honour and blessing of attending another session with Abdy who is back 'down Under for another series of Divine reconnection sessions.

This time, Jean, and my heart - wow - my heart is shattered and yet whole - this time my turn at reconnecting with the Divine Heart and Divine Will - for me was about totally surrendering heart mind body and soul to the Divine to Goddess/God and to embody as best as i am able, human foibles and all, Being of Service.

After my 'journey' i got up and once more asked 'how may i be of service'. i was moved to assist folk by bringing healing energy through in channel. then while helping Abdy to lay people down on the floor after he had first embraced and touched their throat, heart or solar plexus chakras or third eye, he suddenly took the position of the 'catcher' and leaning forward into the lady whose turn it was, pulled me into position so that i could bring through the Divine attunement. i was stunned, scared, humbled and awestruck. and then i just let my heart open and the energy flow.

Jean it was and is so exquisite [as you know] to be an instrument for the Divine. with the Divine Feminine flowing through me I helped to reconnect another 4 or 5 people and then sat, quietly loving and peaceful for a while.

Jean i cannot tell you how much i totally unconditionally LOVE the Divine and the Divine in each and everyone of us - we are so very truly deeply blessed.

My heart and soul felt thanks to you for sharing my story through your wonderful network of lovelight beings.

and may your crops and harvest in all things be bountiful and rich - i honour the Divine LOVELIGHT and Will in you

Blessings and peace and joy and love

Lynn

Latest message from Matthew received through Suzanne Ward suzy@pacifier.com>

June 18, 2004

S: Good morning, sweetheart! Please comment on this article.

MATTHEW: Good morning to you, dear soul! With pleasure I’ll comment. We enthusiastically greet this scientist’s explicit and articulate report of what many of us have been telling you about the light changing bodies at cellular level from carbon-based to crystalline, and especially we are delighted that the spiritual aspects are so clearly enunciated in this masterful explanation. Dr. Fox was “inspired” to discover the changing DNA structure and align it with spiritual development— this is within her pre-birth agreement. For me to say anything else would be repetitious, so I add only that we fervently hope this information becomes widely disseminated and welcomed there.

S: Do you want me to send this out with your comment?

MATTHEW: Please, by all means do so!

S: OK, I will. I’ve had some feedback that your last message about the U.S. and world economy was distressing. Can you say anything that’s more encouraging about it?

MATTHEW: Mother, I reported this situation as it is. Isn’t it more prudent to be aware of the actual state of economic conditions so you can prepare to whatever extent possible rather than be oblivious a bit longer and then be shocked? Please remember that I specified “short term” in this respect, which IS encouraging, isn’t it?

In this time of the dark power unraveling as more and more light is reaching people and raising their conscious awareness about what has long been hidden, money control is the last fortress of the dark forces. Some weeks ago in reply to a private request about release of funding for a most important project, I advised that the funds would be held up but eventually would be available. This applies across the board to light services and products that directly impact upon areas where the darkness realizes its control is shifting because collectively your energy is manifesting beneficial changes.

Times of transition can be far less difficult when there is understanding of what is transpiring and especially when the outcome is known to be what many call the Golden Age. Perhaps it will be helpful if again I mention the significance of the year 2012 that is becoming more commonly discussed. This timeframe less than eight years hence is not the beginning of that glorious era—it is the END of the darkness that has caused massive suffering on and for Earth! The transition started about six decades past but only recently is becoming recognized in such ways as climate change, the sense of time passing ever more quickly, and perhaps the still mysterious effects of energy acceleration on mind, body and emotions. However, the most dramatic change is the growing acceptance that extraterrestrial spacecraft are around your planet and their occupants are there for peaceful purposes.

S: That’s what’s most comforting to me!

MATTHEW: Mother, you might be surprised to know how many there are sharing your feeling! While this God-sent assistance has been essential for Earth herself to rise out of the negativity that has been trapping her, it’s just as essential for you to understand that you chose to be there specifically to participate in this unprecedented planetary ascension. It is a collaborative effort between all of you and our “space” family, not theirs alone. Light is being beamed steadily to those who are faltering in remembering their soul contracts, and we ask that you who are attuned to your chosen missions send love-light to those who are lagging.

S: Matthew, about the beginning of the Golden Age—can that happen before 2012 if the “laggers” catch up or leave by physical death?

MATTHEW: As I’ve mentioned often, Earth time is an illusion that exists nowhere else in this universe, and that year is only your current perception of “future.” The sense of “time passing faster” is your interpretation of what actually is occurring, the acceleration of energy as your planet is rising into higher frequencies. The more light absorbed by Earth through the collective light absorbed by her population, the more rapid will be her ascension into higher vibrational levels and correspondingly the more rapidly your “time will pass.”

Mother, when you and I first connected over ten years ago, I told you that a calendar week actually was about five days of your former “time” sensation. Now it is less than three days. Your perception that time is hastening by will continue with energy’s acceleration as more light joins that which already is anchored on the planet, thus 7_ years will be accelerated in kind. The date 2012 is not important of itself—how quickly it arrives IS, and it is within your province to speed this up by holding and spreading the light.

S: Am I understanding this correctly, Mash—7_ years actually can be condensed into a much shorter time by increasing the light here even though it’s still a valid calendar date?

MATTHEW: Well, let’s say “semi-valid,” because as your years go by more swiftly, you will understand the universal continuum where your time and distance aren’t applicable. Everything is energy vibrating at one measure of density or another, and the more light within souls, the closer your current “time” and “distance” with All That Is until you consciously are within this truth.

S: OK, I think I understand this, but do certain things have to be done to speed up 2012’s arrival or will that happen regardless of what transpires here?

MATTHEW: This is a matter of what will seem to be happening within your time structure rather than what “needs to be done.” Our messages through clear spiritual channels long have emphasized that Earth is ascending regardless of what anyone there “does,” but what we devoutly hope is that at least most, if not all of you, will “see the light” and accompany her. As more souls are receptive to the light, the faster it will seem that you are approaching 2012. Mother, I don’t know how to explain this more clearly, so please just know that holding steadfast to the vision of your world in peace and harmony is in itself adding to the energy that is bringing this to you.

S: OK, dear. Is there anything else you’d like to say?

MATTHEW: Yes, thank you. Messages from these dimensions of love must be in truth and not only a rosy illusion that actually would be a DElusion and not serve you well. We wish to enlighten and advise you as well as comfort you so you are spiritually prepared not only to greet Earth’s Eden self, but to contribute as you eagerly chose to do before your birth. Please help in this by staying strongly committed to your soul contract and do not be disheartened by our words about the transition that may seem difficult to hear. You who remain strong in spirit are prepared! Know that we continuously are beaming light to you just as to those who falter and allow fear to enter their being and to those who are holding fast to dark intentions. If only you could realize the vastness of the light coming from countless sources in the universe, your hearts would be uplifted immeasurably to hasten the moment when darkness succumbs to the brilliance, and love permeates Earth.

Thank you, Mother, for sending out this message.

S: Of course! It feels good to help in this little way.

MATTHEW: Ah, ah, ah—NO way in which light is spread ever is “little”! EVERYONE needs to realize this! How often have I mentioned that a smile sends incalculable ripples of light? A kind word has the same effect. Watering a thirsty plant, an extra pat to your pet, a loving thought of a friend, the enjoyment of hearing a bird chirp—all of these simple expressions are LOVE-LIGHT flowing and healing your world!

New Form Of Humans Being Made? DNA, Cellular Upgrades

6-17-4

Dr Berrenda Fox provides evidence of DNA and cellular changes in this interview

by Patricia Resch...

PATRICA RESCH: Berrenda, tell us a little about your background.

Dr BERRENDA FOX: I have doctorates in physiology and naturopathy. During my training in Europe, I also was involved with the media and this still continues in film and management. As you know, I'm working with FOX Television Network to bring about UNDERSTANDING OF EXTRATERRESTRIALS AND THEIR ROLE IN WHAT IS HAPPENING WITH MANKIND at this time. The most well known are 'Sightings' and 'The X Files.'

PR: What are the changes that are happening at this time on the planet, and how are our bodies being affected?

BF: There are major changes, mutations that haven't occurred, according to geneticists, since the time we supposedly came out of the water. Several years ago in Mexico City there was a convention of geneticists from around the world, and the main topic was the DNA change. We are making an evolutionary change, yet we don't know what we are changing into.

PR: How is our DNA changing?

BF: Everyone has one double helix of DNA. What we are finding is that THERE ARE OTHER HELIXES THAT ARE BEING FORMED. In the double helix there are two strands of DNA coiled into a spiral. It is my understanding that we will be developing twelve helixes. During this time, which seems to have started maybe 5 to 20 years ago, we have been mutating. This is the scientific explanation. It is a MUTATION OF OUR SPECIES into something for which THE END RESULT IS NOT YET KNOWN.

The changes are NOT KNOWN PUBLICLY, because the scientific community feels it would FRIGHTEN THE POPULATION. However, people are changing at the cellular level. I am working with three children right now who have three DNA helixes. Most people know and feel this. Many religions have talked about the change and know it will come about in different ways. We know it is a positive mutation even though physically, mentally, and emotionally it can be misunderstood and frightening.

PR: Are these children displaying any characteristics different from other children?

BF: These are children who can move objects across the room just by concentrating on them, or they can fill glasses of water just by looking at them. THEY'RE TELEPATHIC. You would almost think by knowing these children that they are half angelic or superhuman, but they're not. I think they are what we are growing into during the next few decades.

PR: Do you think this will happen to all of us?

BR: Our immune and endocrine systems are the most evident of these changes. That is one of the reasons I work with research in immunological testing and therapy. Some adults that I have tested actually do have another DNA helix forming. Some are even getting their third. These people are going through a lot of major shifts in their consciousness and physical bodies, because it is all one. In my opinion, the Earth and everyone here is raising its vibration. Many of the children born recently have bodies that are magnetically lighter. Those of us that are older and choose to change have to go through many physical changes.

PR: What causes change in bodies born with normal two strand DNA?

BF: The easiest way to mutate our DNA is through a virus. Consequently viruses are not necessarily bad. Viruses live only on living tissue. DNA viruses like Epstein Barr and the Herpes change cellular structure. The retro virus HIV is not a DNA virus. Instead of mutating the body, it actually eats it up. Most people who go through this process and come out the other side have a new profession, a new way of thinking, or at least a starting of a new way of life.

Even though they may feel really sick, tired, or hopeless at times, it is a gift. They are being given a chance to change their DNA structure and their body into a lighter, healthier body that can see them into the next generation. The angels that are being seen are signs that we are shifting. As I understand it, WE HAVE UNTIL ABOUT 2012 TO COMPLETE THIS PROCESS.

PR: What other changes should we expect to see?

BF: There will be no disease, we will not need to die. We will be able to learn our lessons not through suffering but through joy and love. The old system has to crumble away, and is not doing that without putting up a big fight. So you have all the wars; a lot of the medical type of healing is not working; the government is not working. A lot of the old paradigms can no longer exist, yet are fighting to be maintained, but there is no doubt that it is changing.

Those of us who have chosen to live at this time are the forerunners of almost a new species. It is human, yet we are at the same time actually manifesting heaven on Earth. We are receiving extra help from masters and extraterrestrials, angelic beings, and learning to go inward. The more we are able to go in and listen to that quiet voice, the more we are in tune with the changes that are happening.

PR: What are some of the side effects of these changes?

BF: With a cellular change you are sometimes going to feel as though you are not here. You may feel exhaustion, because we are literally changing cells and becoming new beings. Like a new baby, you may need lots of rest.

Mental confusion and not being able to concentrate on routine tasks may happen as we are being programmed for something larger. Aches and pains throughout the body for which there is no specific cause are common. Many people feel as though they are going crazy. If they go into an orthodox medical office, most likely they will be put on Prozac, because they can't define what it is. It is difficult for the medical profession because they are not used to dealing with the energy body.

Because the chakras are related to our endocrine system, women will go through hormonal changes. There may be crying without knowing why because crying releases hormones. Many women are going through menopause earlier because we are accelerating.

Men may be very frustrated with the exhaustion when they are used to being very active. They may feel their feminine side coming out because this is the intuitive side. The emotional therapy that has been coming out in the last 20 to 30 years has been speeded up with new techniques for these changes. We are actually doing a tremendous amount of emotional work in a very short time which would have taken thousands of years.

PR: How do you you treat someone who is going through these changes?

BF: I approach it from the viewpoint of working with individual beings instead of treating a disease, 'Doctor' in Latin means educator. The only effective service you can perform as a true healer is to empower individuals with the necessary tools and reassure them that what is happening is real, and that they can heal and be free of the 'negative' symptoms while healing.

First, I require immunological testing that is not traditionally done. This is a blood laboratory test performed by an advanced specialty research lab. Then I give the patient the information themselves. This is much like a map of the changes so they can have the power to heal. I am not the healer but only an instrument in their individual healing process. There is power in a person looking at their own blood tests and seeing the map of what is going on in their bodies that causes something to click in the subconscious.

The real key is that the person take responsibility and do their own work. What I use as tools are not commonly used. I use a lot of Organotherapy, which is a glandular treatment from Europe, to build up the hormonal system to accept the changes in the DNA.

Also, I use homeopathy to work on the energetic body, vitamins, herbs, and cold laser therapy. The therapy depends entirely on individual needs. Much of what I do has been accessed from those whom I would call older sisters and brothers who have gone on before us. They are from other solar systems that we have all come from to help this planet with its transition.

PR: How do you see your work evolving?

BF: I look at my work as a bridge or transition. It is both scientific and artistic. Healing is an art and a science. Using only science or just the art of healing is not enough for complete health. I don't think I will be a healer all my life because I believe disease will be eliminated. We as conscious people will eliminate disease and suffering.

DNA AND BODY CHANGES AND REMEDIES

Extracted from an article 'The Bigger Picture' by Susanna Thorpe-Clark. We are being changed physically from carbon-based beings with 2 strands of DNA into crystalline beings with 1,024 strands of DNA (eventually), because only crystalline substances can exist on higher dimensional levels. We are in fact having our bodies MERGED WITH SIRIAN DNA strands, as this format is close enough to our own to be able to integrate with relatively little side effects.

It is not just we humans who are changing, but all life forms on Earth are becoming crystalline. All the fish in the sea, the flowers and trees in your garden, the birds in the sky, even your pet dog or cat. Everything is changing. Nothing will die or be destroyed, for we are all moving together into A NEW STATE OF BEING. This new state of being requires therefore that we physically, mentally and emotionally let go of 3rd dimensional concepts.

Just as in death, the letting go is a major part of the change process, for one cannot take the old values and way of being into a new completely different afterlife. So the progression through changes compels us to let go of current relationships, jobs, careers, homes, possessions, and so on, if they are unable to support our new way of being.

Is it any wonder therefore, that there is a great deal of anxiety and fear being felt because these changes are already in progress, even though most people are not conscious of it. Also, the changes to our physiological makeup are currently speeding up and there are MANY TEMPORARY PHYSICAL SYMPTOMS that are occurring in our bodies as a consequence of this. Some of these are:

Flu-like symptoms - high temperatures, sweating, aching bones and joints etc, but which do not respond to antibiotics.

Migraine headaches - severe pain that is not relieved with pain killers.

Occasional diarrhoea.

Occasional runny nose - with sneezing which lasts 24 hours and is not a cold or hayfever.

Dizziness

Ringing in the ears

Heart palpitations

Feeling the whole body vibrate - especially at night when one is in a relaxed state.

Intense muscle spasms - plus pain in the body, often the back.

Tingling - in arms, hands, legs or feet.

Loss of muscular power - in hands, caused by changes in circulation system.

Occasional breathing difficulties - and/or noticing stronger or louder breathing when in a relaxed state.

Immune system changes

Lymphatic system changes

Feeling tired - or exhausted from minor exertion.

Wanting to sleep - longer and more often than normal.

Toe nails and hair growing quicker than normal.

Bouts of depression for no real reason.

Delving into the past - and looking at relationships, gaining clarity on personal issues.

Feeling of a huge purge

Tension, anxiety and high stress levels - because one feels that something is going on but doesn't know what it is.

Some of these symptoms are being felt by a great many people. Many are rushing off in panic to their doctor, chiropractor, herbalist, and so on, and are usually told that there is nothing wrong with them. And this is the truth. For all these symptoms are just temporary and simply indicate that these physiological changes are occurring.

Some of the RECOMMENDED RELIEF REMEDIES for the above are: Go with the flow, don't fight it. If you feel tired and exhausted, rest and get plenty of sleep. Drink lots of water for you are detoxifying and dehydrating quicker than usual. To relieve emotional tension and stress levels take Valerian. Fenugreek relieves stress on the lymphatic system and helps the detoxification.

To relieve muscle spasm take Valerian and try mud baths or a long, hot soak in a bath to which you add a cup of Epsom salts. Do this daily. Recognize that even if you are having heart palpitations or breathing difficulties that it is the heart chakra or the throat chakra that is unblocking and that the symptoms are temporary. You aren't dying, just changing! However, don't just take my word for it. Seek medical guidance if you are unsure. If you don't know where to get Valerian or Fenugreek, try a health food store or better still, simply say the name in your head when you need relief.

All healing energies are transmitted via the sound of the name and are just as effective said in the mind or aloud, as in physically taking them. Try it and see. Ask your angel guides to help relieve any pain. They are just waiting to be asked ! Most symptoms seem to last a couple of weeks, then clear up. Some symptoms may recur from time to time. These changes are not necessarily being experienced by everyone concurrently. A very small percentage of adults have already completed the entire change into crystalline form and now embody 1,024 strands of DNA.

One report is of a woman who has grown 3 inches taller and a footsize larger. All children under the age of 7 have also now completed the change, or will shortly do so. Babies born in the past 2 years have all been born with the full set of DNA. Some people are only just starting to move through these changes, and many others have yet to start. This process of change is known as the Awakening, or as the Ascension process, or known as achieving the Merkabah, or light body.

We need to transcend our fears and learn about love, real love, which has to start with the self. Because, until we can love and trust ourselves, we cannot truly love or trust anything or anybody else.

NOTE from Jean: I looked on the Web to see if I could find other corroborating articles on this subject and found this:

From: http://www.2012.com.au/DNA_upgrades.html

TWELVE-STRANDED RNA/DNA: A TWICE-TOLD TALE

Our narrative begins in the early 1950s when Doctors Watson and Crick make an epic discovery concerning the RNA/DNA double helix (see FIGURE 7). They find a third, separated strand in the center of the double helix. Other researchers soon confirm their findings. At first, many geneticists postulate that this third strand is just protein detritus, a material left over from the more primitive evolutionary elements that originally created the human species.

Nonetheless, by the mid-1980s, doubts began to be expressed about this concept. Many genetic researchers involved in the early study of the human genome determined that the third strand was starting to connect to the four ladders inside the double helix. This activating third strand displayed highly unusual properties. Its unexpected development suddenly called into question how human evolution had occurred.

Infants born with this activated third strand demonstrate very high intelligence and expanded psychic abilities, the most common of which is telepathy. Many babies are able to 'talk' telepathically with their parents, even warning them of potential danger. Initially, these children were rarely seen. However, since the early 1990s, more have been observed worldwide. At a special meeting in Mexico City in 1995, geneticists discussed this occurrence (now much more widespread) in secret.

In addition to these amazing children, a number of adults began to appear, globally, whose third strand is in the preliminary stages of reconnecting to the four ladders of the RNA/DNA double helix. By the mid-1990s, the situation had become more prevalent. During the 1995 Conference on Genetics in Mexico City, scientists debated whether to conceal this odd problem from the public or to give out false information, pending the completion of further studies. Many geneticists saw this phenomenon as the potential beginning of a new global catastrophe. They failed to see it as a portent of the ever-evolving integration of body, mind, and Spirit.

The first stage of your cellular genetic mutations consists of this third-strand phenomenon. Once this phase is completed, a second stage begins, initiating a multi-strand RNA/DNA (from three to five or even sixstrand) and soon causing superb unification among your mental, emotional, and physical bodies. This stage ends when your genetic material is ready to transform itself into its final form: twelve-strand RNA/DNA.

DNA actually has a receptive 'quality. The protein itself is almost like a hologram, a fact that many geneticists (especially in the field of bioelectrical genetics) have discovered. They have found that if information is introduced into the wall of a cell, it is immediately brought within the cellular nucleus. A relationship exists between the cell wall and the nucleus that these scientists were initially at a loss to explain. Cellular interaction takes place, changing the amounts of various chemical reactions, proteins, and so on in the cellular structure and actually altering the metabolism of the body.

CLIP

Concurrently, a genetic shift is also changing your consciousness. It is the reason for an increased interest in Angels and people 'becoming' more psychic and mystical. Across this planet, there exists a burgeoning, messianic-like fervor. The first stage is expressed by religious revival activity, and you will move beyond it.

The tremendous growth in your awareness of Spirit, which you are experiencing, is happening in each and every culture around the planet. This feature (the return to your original, spiritual roots) is part of the program. People are seeing its importance right now. Indigenous peoples are also spreading their knowledge. Spirit guides have directed shamans and sacred members of tribal nations to disseminate this vital knowledge NOW!

For a contradicting view though on this see:

The Triple Helix
http://lpi.oregonstate.edu/ss03/triplehelix.html
This year marks the 50th anniversary of the discovery of the structure of DNA, certainly one of the most important scientific discoveries of all time. In February of 1953, “A proposed structure for the nucleic acids” was published in The Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. In this paper, which would turn out to be one of the most famous mistakes in 20th-century science, Linus Pauling and his collaborator on protein structures, Robert Corey, both at the California Institute of Technology, argued for a triple-helical structure for DNA. A few months later, James Watson and Francis Crick published the correct structure of DNA, a double helix, in Nature and later shared the Nobel Prize (1962) with Maurice Wilkins for this epochal discovery.

NOTE from Jean: A friend came back recently from seeing Joao de Deus (John of God) in Brazil after being successfully treated for his heart condition and after he told me his story and amazing experience there, I looked Joao up on the Web and found this...

From: http://www.johnofgod.com/article.htm

John of God

Casa de Dom Inacio

Abadiania, Goias, Brazil

From an original interview by Robert Pellegrino-Estrich

They come in their thousands. The sick, the lame, the 'incurable' and the medically discarded, to a small town in central Brazil. They endure long international flights and for some long bus trips to Abadiania, high on the plateaux of Central Brazil. They come to be cured by the miracle healer, Joao Teixeira de Faria ... the man they call John of God.

He will scrape away cataracts and eye tumours with a knife, remove breast cancers with a small incision and cause the crippled to walk with just the touch of his hand. In a meditation room a ceiling high stack of discarded crutches, wheelchairs and braces pays silent testimony to his success. He is acclaimed as the greatest healer of the past 2,000 years.

Buses arrive throughout the night. At 5am it is cool and still. A heavy mist blankets the town of Abadiania much of which has grown to cater for the thousands who pilgrimage here. People sit outside the simple lodging houses talking softly... waiting. Some sleep in cars or buses or simply stand around waiting for the sunrise. The lodging houses provide free coffee for the weary travellers who spill from newly arrived buses all through the night. Dawn will bring new hope of a life without pain or illness.

The hospital-style centre opens at 6am. The sick collect their queuing numbers as cameramen prepare their equipment for the filming of the day's activity. In an unmarked room Joao rests in preparation. Rita, a dentist and volunteer aid, who says she was healed by Joao of an incurable disease, explains that he can call on more than 34 doctor entitles who use him as a vessel to perform the amazing surgery and healing. Joao is an unconscious medium, she explains, who does not remember anything once he is incorporated by entity. The principal entity is Dom Inacio, after whom the centre is named - Casa De Dom Inacio.

My initial interview with Joao is in the unmarked room at the rear of the centre. He lies on a couch in the dimly lit, sparsely furnished room. On the wall above his head hang pictures of his principal entities. On the adjacent wall hang a dozen Honorary Degrees, Certificates of Appreciation and Civil Awards bestowed upon him by grateful countries and VIPS, among them a plaque bearing a Medal of Honour from the President of Peru in gratitude for healing his son. Joao greets us with an outstretched hand from the couch where he is resting. We do not stay long. He has another busy day ahead. The people are lining up - over 600 already and it is only 7.30am. Soon he will say a simple prayer and incorporate the entity. Time enough for us to inspect the premises before the healings begin.

The healing centre, affectionately known as The House, is simple, efficient and designed to cater for large numbers of people. The main hall is open at one end leading out to a covered walkway, toilets and a rose garden. This is the main treatment area where most of the visible operations are performed on patients where they stand. A lilting song heralds his entry. Followed by assistants carrying trays of surgical instruments, he moves slowly in trance. Anaesthesia and sterilisation are provided invisibly by the entities, a fact that astounds medical doctors who come to observe him. In 35 years there has never been a single case of septicaemia in the house.

During the first morning 1 saw operations performed that defied my logic. Touching the head of a woman who had a large tumour in her stomach, he lifted her shirt to reveal a freshly stitched four-inch incision. Two hours later she seemed well, in high spirits and happy to show me her incision. 'See,' she said, 'the tumour is gone, and I'm going home to cook dinner!'

Some of the operations are unorthodox in the extreme. With a pair of long nosed forceps and a cotton swab he operates through the nose, twisting the forceps high in the sinus cavity. I am told that he can perform 28 different operations throughout the body with this technique. While gruesome for the viewers, many feel only a mild unpleasantness whilst others
experience considerable discomfort. One woman said that the sensation was so good she was sorry Joao had not done the other one. One man l interviewed declared he had six broken bones in his feet repaired by this method. A similarly illogical operation is performed by scraping the eyeball with a kitchen knife, a procedure absolutely impossible by any medical doctor. Apart from the removal of eye tumours and cataracts, he also operates elsewhere in the body by scraping the eye. Invited to watch at close range, I saw a small blue light emanate from the tip of the knife. This light strobed deep into the iris and seemed to break up into multiple white fingers. At no time was there an anaesthetic or aseptic used in any operation. Incisions produce virtually no bleeding, a fact which astounds doctors and scientists alike.

I was warned by a kindly assistant to watch for an amazing phenomenon: 'simultaneous invisible operations' which occur in the crowd as he operates. Even so, 1 was not prepared for the frequency and, simplicity of this remarkable occurrence. People began dropping like flies all around me. 'Get that one!' Joao said as he paused from a delicate eye operation and pointed into the crowd. 'There is another over there. Take them to the recovery room,' he said with firm compassion. These were truly miraculous healings.

1 watched in amazement as a man, confined to a wheelchair for 50 years, was told to stand and walk after a simple touch of his legs. The grateful man burst into tears as assistants walked him away and the wheelchair was removed to become part of the static display in the meditation room. l pulled myself away to check on patients in the recovery room.

Fitted with two rows of clean white beds, the recovery room smelled clean and sterile; a spiritual air, not the chemical smell of a hospital. I sought out some of the 'simultaneous operations' to check their post operative condition. Hopeless cancer cases, gallstones, hernia, cataracts, chronic arthritis, leukaemia, heart problems and many undiagnosed illnesses. All were drowsy but calm and content. Everyone I spoke to had been operated on; successfully, they assured me. One man, who had not been able to sit or bend and previously required assistance to lie down, had received a small incision between his shoulders. Immediately he could bend, squat and sit. He was so happy tears rolled down his big square cheeks as he described his amazing cure.

The house contains three other major rooms. One is a meditation room where 30 or more mediums, all dressed in white, sit in deep meditation. This, they tell me, generates a strong healing current. Next door, in the main interview room, sit another 60 or more volunteer mediums. The long line of ailing pilgrims walk through the centre of this room to receive their cures or prescriptions from the medium Joao, who is in entity. Following the visible operations, he sits in a large chair as the people file past. The entity scans each person and 'sees' their problem. For many, he will write a script for herbs in a strange spirit shorthand. Limping, on crutches or in wheelchairs, the line seems unending. Some who need operations are directed to wait in an adjoining room where major surgery or prolonged treatments take place. As he speaks, his hand, seemingly disconnected from the man himself, flashes across a notepad. Another script, another instruction and the line moves on. An engineer who first brought his daughter to the house seeking a cure for a painful leg condition, tells me the medium will stay until all have been treated, sometimes late into the evening.

Although a successful businessman in his private life, Joao Teixeira is a simple man of humble origins who now devotes three days every week to healing his fellow human beings, without payment of any kind. A heavy-set man with a slight bodily slump, he exudes deep compassion and remarkable inner strength. He speaks with an economy of words but his deep voice commands attention.

Born into an impoverished family, he is intimately familiar with hunger, deprivation and the humility of poverty. As revealed in his biography The Miracle Man, he discovered his extraordinary gift at age 16 when a female vision appeared to him and told him to go to a nearby spiritual church. Greeted by a senior member when he arrived, he does not remember the next few hours but on awakening he was told that he had performed miraculous operations. He has continued healing for 38 years despite relentless persecution. For much of his youthful life he was forced to live as a wanderer, traveling from city to city healing the sick and living from their donations of food. The police harassed him constantly with beatings and incarceration. Despite his compassion and unselfish dedication to the thousands of sick who seek his help, he is still ridiculed by his enemies. Amazingly, he treats many of his persecutors - doctors and police - with their own incurable diseases. Clergymen, rabbis and nuns from all over the world write testimonies to his miraculous cures.

The poor and the famous are equally welcome. The famous include actress Shirley Maclaine who was told she could never dance again until Joao cured her stricken legs caused by a tumour in her stomach. Thousands of written testimonies are filed in the office along with piles of newspaper clippings and personal letters of gratitude. It is estimated he has cured more than 15 million people in his 38 years of healing. Reports by scientists from all over the world support claims of miraculous healings of every malady known and unknown, including incurable cancers, lupus disease and 139 cases (at the time of writing) of AIDS. Many come with their white coats of scepticism, but all leave totally convinced that he is a genuine paranormal phenomenon of medicine.

The sick do not pay for treatment. If herbs are prescribed they pay only a few dollars to cover the cost of production. They will be fed at lunchtime with a simple wholesome soup, bread and herb tea, for which there is no charge. The week before I arrived he treated and fed over 15,000 people in three days! He and his volunteer staff worked non-stop up to 14 hours each day. It is said that he treats and operates on more people for major maladies in a single week than the largest western hospital would treat in a month.

Like other renowned healers before him - Edgar Cayce, Ze Arigo and Britain's Harry Edwards, his miraculous cures provide hope for the terminally ill who have exhausted all avenues of modem medicine. Joao is the living proof of spirit existence that even the sceptics cannot refute.

A trip to this sanctuary is a spiritually uplifting experience even for the hale and hearty.

Near Death Experiences of the Rich and Famous

By Kevin Williams

Soul Travel Magazine

The near-death experiences of rich and famous people are particularly interesting. They are known all over the world. They are often beautiful, articulate and very talented in what they do. With this in mind, why would such a person reveal to everyone that they were dead and came back to life? Money? They already got that. Fame? They are already famous. In fact, by telling everyone they came back from the dead, they may be risking their own reputation. People who reveal such things to others often become the butt of jokes or thought to be crazy. Why would anyone rich and famous subject themselves to this when it might result in lost fame and fortune? The only rational reason that such people who have nothing to gain is that it really happened to them and they want to share it. The following are rich and famous people who risked it all to tell the world about their near-death experience. Some of these accounts are documented in Jean Ritchie's excellent book, Death's Door.

Jane Seymour

Jane Seymour is an actress most noted for the cult classic movie, "Somewhere in Time," with actor Christopher Reeves, and the television series "Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman." When Jane Seymour was 36 years of age, she had a severe case of the flu and was given an injection of penicillin. She suffered an allergic reaction which led to a near-death experience. "I literally left my body. I had this feeling that I could see myself on the bed, with people grouped around me. I remember them all trying to resuscitate me. I was above them, in the corner of the room looking down. I saw people putting needles in me, trying to hold me down, doing things. I remember my whole life flashing before my eyes, but I wasn't thinking about winning Emmys or anything like that. The only thing I cared about was that I wanted to live because I did not want anyone else looking after my children. I was floating up there thinking, "No, I don't want to die. I'm not ready to leave my kids." And that was when I said to God, "If you're there, God, if you really exist and I survive, I will never take your name in vain again." Although I believe that I "died" for about thirty seconds, I can remember pleading with the doctor to bring me back. I was determined I wasn't going to die." She then suddenly found herself back in her body.

Peter Sellers

Peter Sellers was the comic genius of a generation of actors. He brought brilliant characterizations to numerous films, including "The Mouse That Roared" (1959), "Dr. Strangelove" (1964), "The Pink Panther" (1964), and "Being There" (1979). He was known for his enthusiastic way of totally absorbing himself in his characters, even carrying roles offstage. He also suffered from sad moods between films. While he knew his characters thoroughly, he said that he really did not know who he was. Then Peter Sellers, the brilliant, confused actor, had a near-death experience. Seated in a Hollywood mockup of a limousine's back seat while shooting his last great film, "Being There", he told Shirley MacLaine about his near-death experience, astonished that she did not consider him "bonkers." Shirley documents their conversation in her book, Out on a Limb. In 1964, during the first of a rapid series of eight heart attacks, when his heart stopped and he was clinically dead, he had an out-of-body experience and saw the bright, loving light: "Well, I felt myself leave my body. I just floated out of my physical form and I saw them cart my body away to the hospital. I went with it ... I wasn't frightened or anything like that because I was fine; and it was my body that was in trouble." The doctor saw that he was dead and massaged his heart vigorously, Meanwhile: "I looked around myself and I saw an incredibly beautiful bright loving white light above me. I wanted to go to that white light more than anything. I've never wanted anything more. I know there was love, real love, on the other side of the light which was attracting me so much. It was kind and loving and I remember thinking "That's God.""Peter's out-of-body soul tried to elevate itself toward the light, but he fell short: "Then I saw a hand reach through the light. I tried to touch it, to grab onto it, to clasp it so it could sweep me up and pull me through it." But just then his heart began beating again, and at that instant the hand's voice said: "It's not time. Go back and finish. It's not time." As the hand receded he felt himself floating back down to his body, waking up bitterly disappointed. What effect did his near-death experience have on Sellers? His biographer says that "The repeated act of "dying" became for Peter Sellers the most important experience of his life." Sellers said of death: "I'll never fear it again." Family and friends found him more spiritual and reflective than before.

Elizabeth Taylor

British actress Elizabeth Taylor spoke about her experience of having "died" on the operating table while undergoing surgery, and of passing through a tunnel towards a brilliant white light. Interviewed by Larry King on CNN's "Larry King Live," the legendary Hollywood star related how she had "died" for five minutes on the operating table. "I was pronounced dead once and actually saw the light. I find it very hard to talk about, actually, because it sounds so corny. It happened in the late '50s, and I saw Mike (Todd, Taylor's third husband, who was killed in a plane crash in 1958). When I came to, there were about 11 people in the room. I'd been gone for about five minutes - they had given me up for dead and put my death notice on the wall. I shared this with the people that were in the room next to me. Then after that I told another group of friends, and I thought, "Wow, this sounds really screwy. I think I'd better keep quiet about this."

Robert Pastorelli

Robert Pastorelli is most noted for his starring role in the television series, "Murphy Brown." At the age of 19, he had a car accident which caused a near-death experience that literally changed how he was living, in a very dramatic way. "It smashed right into the driver's door. It hit me so hard it actually knocked the shoes off my feet. My car rolled over about four times on this big highway and the next thing I knew I was in intensive care with a collapsed lung. Every one of my ribs was shattered. I had lacerations to my head and face, and my kidneys, spleen and gall bladder were all ruptured. I was a mess. I was in excruciating pain. Then, in the next second, there was no pain. Suddenly I realized I was out of my body. I was floating above myself, looking down at my unconscious body lying in the hospital emergency room with my eyes closed. I could see tubes down my nose and throat. I knew I was dying and I thought, "Well, this must be death." I even saw a priest giving me the last rites. But it was the most peaceful feeling in the world. Then I saw my father starting to faint out of grief. Two nurses grabbed him and sat him down in a chair across the room. When I looked down and saw my father's pain it had an effect on me. I firmly believe that at that moment I made a decision to live, not die. The next thing I knew I was waking up back in my body. Later, in the recovery room, when I was fully conscious, I told my father what had happened, his fainting and all. He was astounded."

Sharon Stone

"Basic Instinct" star, Sharon Stone, has told how she had a "white light experience" during her brain scare. Stone says she almost died after internal bleeding caused by a tear in an artery at the base of her skull. Sharon was interviewed by Katie Couric about her journey into the afterlife. "When it hit me I felt like I'd been shot in the head. That's the only way I can really describe it. It hit me so hard it knocked me over on the sofa. And Phil was out of town and I called him and said, 'I think I had a stroke.' But in all fairness, I'm a person who's always saying, 'I think I've had a stroke, I think I've had a heart attack, I think I've had a brain hemorrhage ...' I had a real journey with this that took me to places both here and beyond that affected me so profoundly that my life will never be the same ... I get to be not afraid of dying and I get to tell other people that it's a fabulous thing and that death is a gift. And not that you should kill yourself, but that when death comes to you, as it will, that it's a glorious and beautiful thing. This kind of giant vortex of white light was upon me and I kind of - poof - sort of took off into this glorious, bright, bright, bright white light and I started to see and be met by some of my friends. But it was very fast - whoosh! Suddenly, I was back. I was in my body and I was in the room."

Gary Busey

Gary Busey, once Hollywood's "bad boy," was nominated for an Oscar for the movie The Buddy Holly Story. Busey, who fought addiction with drugs and alcohol for several years, was nicknamed "Gary Abusey" by his wife. Busey has had supernatural encounters in which he nearly died three or more times in his life ...a drug overdose, cancer, and an accident west of Albuquerque, New Mexico. But the most tragic experience, and one that changed his life, was a motorcycle accident in 1988. Gary was going about 40-50 miles per hour riding on 750 pounds of cold steel. He was not wearing a helmet when he crashed. He was flung over the top of his cycle, head first into the curb and he cracked his skull. Busey had an NDE while he was dying on the operating table after having brain surgery. During his NDE, he was surrounded by angels. Busey stated that they didn't appear in the form that people see on Christmas cards. The angels he saw were big balls of light that floated and carried nothing but love and warmth - and this love is unconditional.

Larry Hagman

Larry Hagman, of "Dallas" and "I Dream of Jeanie" fame, underwent a liver transplant in 1995. Years of heavy drinking resulted in cirrhosis and cancer of the liver. He was only weeks away from certain death at the time of his liver transplant and near-death experience. Larry describes what he experienced: "I was able to look over the edge. I got a little glimpse of what was the next step. I didn't see a light some people see, but I had a wonderful feeling of bliss and warmth. The bottom line is "love," that sounds corny, but it was just lovely, uplifting."

Donald Sutherland

Donald Sutherland, who played the character, Hawkeye Piece, in the movie version of "Mash", had a near-death experience when ill with meningitis in 1979. "Suddenly the pain, fever and acute distress seemed to evaporate. I was floating above my body, surrounded by soft blue light. I began to glide down a long tunnel, away from the bed ... but suddenly I found myself back in my body. The doctors told me later that I had actually died for a time."

Eric Estrada

Eric Estrada became famous for his starring role in the television series, "Chips." While filming an episode of "Chips," he had a terrible motorcycle accident that led to a near-death experience. "Suddenly I was in a long corridor with bright lights, beautiful music, and a feeling of great peace. But something seemed to be blocking my progress. A voice told me, "You've got to go back. You've a lot still to do. You've achieved success and stardom but you haven't achieved personal happiness and peace of mind." After hearing the voice, he returned to his body.

Eric Roberts

Internationally renowned actor Eric Roberts has starred in more than 70 films, including the Dannion Brinkley movie, "Saved by the Light." Eric has traveled all over the world encountering many colorful experiences. One of Eric's most dramatic moments took place in Westport, Connecticut. He was driving along, became distracted by his dog, and crashed. He was hospitalized in a coma and almost died. It was this state that Eric claimed to have had a surreal out-of-body experience.

Elvis Presley

People having near-death experiences are greeted by someone - usually someone they deeply love or the so-called "Being of Light". When Elvis Presley died, it seemed like the whole world mourned. He was truly loved by many people the world over. Since then, many people have reported having "Elvis sightings" where the spirit of Elvis appears as an apparition to people much in the same way that Jesus appeared to people after his death. Not only this, many near-death experiencers find themselves greeted, not by a Being of Light, but by Elvis Presley. According to Dr. Melvin Morse in his book on near-death experiences entitled "Transformed by the Light," a 45-year old Mid-western teacher saw Elvis Presley in an intense light during her near-death experience. The woman had met Elvis when she was a child. The following is her near-death account: "I entered into a dark tunnel and suddenly I was in a place filled up with love and a beautiful, bright light. The place seemed holy. My father, who had died two years earlier, was there, as were my grandparents. Everyone was happy to see me, but my father told me it was not my time and I would be going back. Just as I turned to go, I caught sight of Elvis! He was standing in this place of intense bright light. He just came over to me, took my hand and said, "Hi, Bev, do you remember me?" Dr. Raymond Moody wrote an entire book on Elvis sightings, including near-death experiences, entitled Elvis After Life. Because of the large number of devoted Elvis fans, it should not be a surprise that people having NDEs should be greeted by the King.

Brushes With Death Transform the Brain

By Julia C. Keller
Science & Theology News

Having a near death experience can change a person's entire life, including one's brain, researchers have discovered. Researcher Willoughby Britton, a doctoral student at the University of Arizona, studied the brain waves of people who have had positive, transformative near death experiences and found their brain patterns distinctive when compared with people who didn't have a brush with death. "It's interesting to see why some people are transformed and why some people aren't and whether studying people with positive near death experiences can help the people who have negative experiences,” Britton said. "It's a profound personality overhaul." Britton compared the brainwaves of sleeping subjects and found a distinct spike in activity in the temporal lobe of people with near death experiences. The brain's temporal lobe has often been implicated in reports of near death experiences that closely mirror what epileptics feel during a seizure: feelings of peace and tranquility, encountering a bright light and increased sensitivity to smells and sounds. The temporal lobe, Britton said, is considered "the God module, the part of the brain that connects with the transcendent."

Surprisingly, however, all of the activity that Britton recorded was from the left half of the brain not the right half, which is more often associated with visual and spatial creativity. "One hundred percent of the activity came from the left side, which, in itself, is very unusual," said Britton. "There's no reason for someone to have an accident and just have one side of their brain affected." Dr. Bruce Greyson, a psychiatrist at the University of Virginia Health System who studies people with near death experiences, said this proves the mind-brain interaction is much more complex than scientists previously thought. "That discrepancy suggests that our concepts of the role of the brain in mental life, and particularly in what appear to be transformative spiritual experiences, is far too limited," Greyson said. But what the activity on the left side of the brain actually says about why people have transformative near death experience isn't clear, Greyson said.

People's brains may be predisposed to having transformative experiences, or, he said, "it is also plausible that near death experiencers were indistinguishable neurophysiologically from other people before their [transformation], and that any observed changes reflect the transformative aftereffects of the experience." What is clear, however, is that all those in Britton's study who came close to dying scored higher on an evaluation of their ability to cope with stressful situations than their counterparts. In fact, Britton said, people with positive transformative experiences tend to change in a way that "as a psychotherapist, that's how you would want them to respond over a lifetime of therapy." "They're less self-centered, much more compassionate towards other people. Many people give up their jobs and become much more service-oriented," she said. Another interesting outcome of Britton's study was the finding that near death experiences leveled the playing field when it came to personal spirituality. "People that went to an organized church stopped going to church. People who were atheists became more spiritual," she said. "They became more similar to each other." Britton added that her insight into the brain's response to near death experience will encourage other scientists to explore the effect of positive, transformative experiences and the role that spirituality might play. "I think, for the most part, psychology tends to look at the problems and nobody studies the people that are psychologically healthy or who have transformative events following a crisis," she said.

Spiritual Neurology: A Mystical Union

A small band of pioneers is exploring the neurology of religious experience

The Economist

The renowned French neurologist Jean-Martin Charcot once scribbled some notes while under the influence of the psychedelic drug mescaline. Colleagues were puzzled because among the scribbles was the incongruous statement, written in English, “I love you Jennifer”. Still more puzzling was the question: who was Jennifer? That was not the name of his wife nor of anyone else they thought he knew. Despite the mystery, Dr Charcot's colleagues never thought to question the scientific value of the experiment.

The same cannot be said of Mario Beauregard, a brain-imager from the University of Montreal, who has also experimented with mescaline. But that is because Dr Beauregard is interested in one particular, and far more contentious, aspect of the mescaline experience — the capacity of the drug to inspire feelings of spirituality or closeness to God. It was experiments of the type carried out by Charcot that opened up the possibility of investigating spirituality in a scientific manner, by showing that it could be manipulated.

Dr Beauregard is following up on these by trying to discover where in the brain religious experience is actually experienced. In the first of what he hopes will be a series of experiments, Dr Beauregard and his doctoral student Vincent Paquette are recording electrical activity in the brains of seven Carmelite nuns through electrodes attached to their scalps. Their aim is to identify the brain processes underlying the Unio Mystica — the Christian notion of mystical union with God. The nuns (the researchers hope to recruit 15 in all) will also have their brains scanned using positron-emission tomography and functional magnetic-resonance imaging, the most powerful brain-imaging tools available.

The study has met with skepticism from both subjects and scientists. Dr Beauregard had first to convince the nuns that he was not trying to prove or disprove the existence of God. Scientific critics, meanwhile, have accused him of being too reductionist—of pretending to pinpoint the soul in the brain in the same way that the Victorians played phrenology as a parlour game by feeling the contours of each others' skulls to find a bulge of secretiveness or a missing patch of generosity. Dr Beauregard does not, in fact, believe there is a neurological “God centre”. Rather, his preliminary data implicate a network of brain regions in the Unio Mystica, including those associated with emotion processing and the spatial representation of self.

But that leads to another criticism, which he may find harder to rebut. This is that he is not really measuring a mystical experience at all—merely an intense emotional one. This is because the nuns are, so to speak, faking it. They believe that the Unio Mystica is a gift of God and cannot be summoned at will. Most of them have only experienced it once or twice, typically in their 20s. To get around this, Dr Beauregard has drawn on previous experiments he carried out with actors, which showed that remembering an intense emotional experience activates the same brain networks as actually having that experience. In effect, he has asked the nuns to method act, and they are happy to comply. Andrew Newberg, a radiologist at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, who has scanned the brains of Buddhists and Franciscan nuns in meditation or at prayer, is familiar with such criticism. He says that, because religious experience is not readily accessible, unusually high standards of experimental rigor are demanded of this kind of research. “We have frequently argued that many aspects of spiritual experiences are built upon the brain machinery that is used for other purposes such as emotions,” he says. “Very careful research will need to be done to delineate these issues.”
