Intuitive Linked Communication: A Practical Way to Connect

By FRANK DEMARCO You can communicate with minds on the other side. In fact, you already do, whether or not you know it. It’s just a matter of learning to do so consciously. You already use the necessary techniques. Communication is communication, whether with physical beings or non-physical. I have been doing this for more than 25 years. After some fumbling experiments with automatic writing, I learned how to engage in written dialogue, and in the next few years I learned how to get into … [Read more...]

Where Does Consciousness Reside? Eben Alexander & the Brain-Mind Problem

By RICHARD SMOLEY Why has Eben Alexander’s story caught the public imagination so intensely? Admittedly, not everyone has looked favourably upon his revelations. Much of the materialistic press has groped around to find holes in his arguments (usually by casting aspersions upon his good faith), but their attempts to rebut him have been someplace between weak and nonexistent. As we shall see. To begin with, here is one of the most important challenges that Alexander makes to current … [Read more...]

A Neurosurgeon’s Journey to Worlds Beyond: An Interview with Dr. Eben Alexander

By RICHARD SMOLEY Today the intellectual world is facing an insurrection. It has nothing to do with politics or economics. It is about worldviews. Contemporary intellectual thought is hidebound by a materialistic view of the universe that automatically shuts out anything of the “spiritual,” or, God forbid, “mystical.” More and more evidence is coming to light that refutes this narrow view of reality. And more and more intellectuals are standing up against it. Eben Alexander is one of the … [Read more...]

Helping Stuck Souls Crossover

By REV. GARY W. DUNCAN, M.S., M.A., CSM/OCP When I was twelve years old, my brother – a Funeral Director – began introducing me into the business. Over the next several years, he taught me anatomy and physiology, principles of mortuary science as well as other aspects of the profession. By the time I was twenty-one, I had completed my mortuary apprenticeship, but decided to leave the profession and pursue a degree in psychology. Working in the funeral business gave me a rich understanding of … [Read more...]

Embraced by the Light: Journeys to the ‘Other Side’

By REV. GARY W. DUNCAN, M.S., M.A., CSM/OCP— Ancient religions including the shamanic traditions are replete with myths regarding the dying and death process. It was believed within these traditions that when a person died their soul was escorted into the afterlife by a special being called a psychopomp. In Greek psycho means soul and pomp means guide, so a psychopomp is a guide of the soul. In our modern world, the psychopomp tradition has changed to not only helping the dying, but also … [Read more...]

Remote Viewing, Astral Travel, the Bardo & Hemi-Sync: An Interview With Skip Atwater

In the midst of the Cold War both the Soviets and the Americans employed psychics to spy on each other’s activities.

The US Army’s program, known by the code name Star Gate, was initiated in the late 1970’s by the gifted natural psychic, Skip Atwater. For ten years Skip was the Operations and Training Officer during which time he recruited and trained an elite group of … [Read more...]

A Western Book of the Dead

By ROBERT MOSS— I have known since I was a very small boy in Australia that there are worlds beyond physical reality, and that we can journey to those worlds and gain first-hand knowledge of the multidimensional universe and about what actually happens after death. When I was nine years old, I was woken up to these possibilities during a crisis of illness. I was rushed to hospital in Melbourne after complaining of a pain in my lower right abdomen. The medical staff found that my appendix was … [Read more...]

Is the Afterlife What We Think It Is? A Challenge from Near-Death Studies

By P.M.H. Atwater, L.H.D. There are millions of stories now of near-death experiences from around the world; each a snippet, a teaser, of what appears to exist on the other side of death. No other human drama carries quite the power this phenomenon does to unmask traditions of a “grim reaper,” and reveal instead an aliveness that continues after our bodies take their last breath and our brains cease to function. This aliveness we call an “afterlife,” because in most cases, what near-death … [Read more...]

At the Threshold: How Near-Death Experiences Transform People

By PMH Atwater My research has shown me that the near-death experience is not some kind of anomaly, but is, rather, part of the larger genre of transformations of consciousness. The clue most researchers miss is stress; specifically, the intensity which comes from that stress (known in shamanism as “high stress”). The entire pattern of aftereffects and the degree to which people change, can be traced to that factor. It’s the intensity that shifts experiencers into what is called a “threshold … [Read more...]
