Messages from the Divine

If you follow me on Facebook you've probably already heard this story, but it bears repeating.  

On the first day of the intense fires in Santa Rosa, CA a few weeks ago (I live 10 miles from there), I was watering my garden in the smoky air, and I noticed something unusual in one of
the  flower pots. It was a burnt page from The Bible that had been carried on the wind from somebody's burning house... ten miles away!

Naturally, this  amazed me. The debris that blew into my yard from the fire could have contained a page from a car repair manual or a comic book, but instead, it was this page, and the passage was extremely relevant. It was  Matthew 10:16-20, w here Jesus tells his disciples to go out into the world to teach and heal, but warns that their work may anger people because it will challenge established belief systems and social structures.
the work I do (and the work many of you do as well), this is a powerful message for all of us. The cosmic communique that landed in my garden reminds us that guidance from Spirit is always raining down upon us; we simply have to know how to listen and interpret. It also clarifies that teaching about consciousness is a sacred calling, and when we feel that the divine is speaking through us with messages of love and awakening, we should trust that feeling.

Speaking of Saying Things
That People Don't Want to Hear...

Russell Targ is a physicist who spent several decades working in a US government program exploring psychic phenomena, out of body experiences  and remote viewing. His presentation in this video was scheduled to be part of a TEDx event in 2013, but the organization pulled their support when they learned about the subject matter. TED doesn't consider this material to be "within the realms of viable science," and has banned several other talks on similar subjects. Read more HERE.

Here's another banned TED talk... this one by Graham Hancock about shamanism, visionary plants and consciousness: 


More from NDE Researcher Dr. Sam Parnia

If you've been reading this newsletter for the last few months, you'll know that we are big fans of Dr. Sam Parnia, who is today's leading researcher on near-death experience (which by the way, isn't really  about being "near" death... it is more accurately "after" clinical death). We are such big fans of Parnia that we've been trying to invite him to speak at the Afterlife Conference for the past couple of years, but we can't find any reliable contact info for him (if you know how to reach him, let us know).

HERE is a recent news story featuring Parnia that includes an argument from the other side of the aisle claiming that NDEs are merely the brain hallucinating due to lack of oxygen.
