Webinar on Ecstasy, Levitation, and Immortality



 I’m assembling a webinar on ecstasy, levitation, and immortality for the Forever Family Foundation that supports afterlife research. As to where I’m coming from, I sporadically have experiences I can’t explain—from PK to precognition.  I’ve been trying to figure out all the strange experiences I’ve had for many years.  

The focus here is on PK (psychokinesis)—stuff about “mind over matter”. In light of all the available evidence, I’m convinced we have powers quite beyond what we normally suppose. The people who know this best are people who have the crucial experiences. Experience, of course, can  rip open your sense of the possible, and on this topic I have observed levitation twice. No mistake about it, raw experience opens the mind.

The Power of Dreaming Together



I once took a workshop with dream researcher and psychiatrist, Monty Ullman. In the group, led by Monty, we shared and interpreted each other’s dreams.  I learned some very interesting things from this workshop.  For example, after listening to others interpret my dreams in ways that made sense and that I missed, I realized the fertility of dream symbolism.  In other words, my own interpretation was limited; working with a group opened me to new ways of probing the possible meaning of my dream. The group dynamic can prevent us from being blindsided by our own limitations.

Unknown Friends That Help Us


It gives us a curious slant on life to know we may have unknown friends.  Unknown in that we really don’t know how they operate, who they are, or where they come from. Sometimes they seem to come from the other side--in this example, not surprisingly, from a mother. Theresa Cheung, a University of Cambridge graduate, with a master’s in theology and English, said that while driving towards a junction behind a truck, she was about to turn left but her dead mother’s voice told her to shift to the right lane. She said: “Even though she had died a few years earlier, it was my mother’s voice, and I obeyed instantly. If I had turned left, you wouldn’t be reading this now, because I would have driven into a pile-up that claimed the lives of three people in cars directly behind the truck.  I can’t explain that voice; it must have been my mother guiding me … It proved to me there is an afterlife.” (Daily and Sunday Express. 2018. express.co.uk/news/ weird/935615/life-after-death-afterlife-what-happens-when-you-die)

A New Angle on the Mystery of Mind



Darold Treffert is a psychiatrist who studies the unexplained creative powers of children with savant-syndrome.  Kids who suffer from autism sometimes possess extraordinary mental abilities. There is also something Treffert calls “sudden savant syndrome”—a phenomenon that really challenges our picture of the human mind. We each may have a “guardian angel” in the form of latent genius that awaits the right stimulus to bring it forth.
