[Tranceformers: Shamans of the 21st Century]
Trance is the real perception state of humankind.
Holger Kalweit, author of Shamans, Healers, and Medicine Men
After-Death Communication (ADC) is the official term now given to what happened to me spontaneously in June 1988 where I was contacted by a deceased federal government physicist colleague, George Viguet (pronounced vee-gay). My friend had died prematurely at age 40 from a sudden cardiac arrest seven months previously in Huntsville, Alabama, but appeared suddenly out-of-the-blue one morning and that invoked a state of trance in me. I slipped into a very unique consciousness that was full-of-information about life and death in fact.
So, as a person with a scientific and religious background, I began an investigation into this state of mind that resulted in a book titled Tranceformers: Shamans of the 21st Century. My writings, in a nutshell, explain the larger relationship we have between what we call heaventhe land of the dead and the Earth, Sun, Milky Way Galaxy and our future world events in era-2012. Thus, I'd like to share some of these insights with you in this article now.
Psychologist Kenneth Ring, Ph.D., a retired professor emeritus with the University of Connecticut, put forth an idea regarding the goal of evolution decades ago that captured my attention once I had my ADC and had to ponder its meaning and find itor lose my mind in the process seemingly.
In his landmark book The Omega Project: Near-Death Experiences, UFO Encounters, and Mind at Large, he speculated that life in general is made of light, the sunshine of stars, the solar plasma radiation that permeate the cosmos itself. This was simply not done back then in those days, to apply solid-state physics knowledge to living biological systems. It is gaining momentum today as prolific life science writer of six books and 150 articles on biophysics and chemistry, Dr. Mae-Wan Ho, says, The most remarkable implication of our findings is that organisms are completely liquid crystalline, in The Rainbow and The Worm: The Physics of Organisms.
The implications of these ideas above are enormous as they point to the properties of solar plasma physics and briefly that means we and creation may well be immortal beings of light. That is, our bodies can die but our thoughts, feelings, and memories may forever be part and particle of a living Mind at Large: God in plain terms.
More so, Dr. Ring's parapsychology research that ran the gamut from alien abductions to near-death encounters with angels confirmed that we are witnessing the classical opening of our third eye today by interacting with higher order beings of light, or what he cleverly-coined as the shamanizing of humanity. This process he defined as the emergence of an encounter-prone personalitya distinctive, spiritually sensitive, and visionary psyche that may, collectively, represent the next stage in human evolution. The key concept I grasped from all of these studies was that our states-of-consciousness are literally linked to the solar cycles of electricity and magnetism. This is why I also just completed a DVD on this topic with Reality Entertainment Studios in London and Hollywood co-directing it, titled Science of Soul: The End-Time Solar Cycle of Chaos in 2012 A.D.
Indeed, keep your third eye peeled on the Sun in Solar Cycle 24.
Robert O. Becker, M.D., author of The Body Electric, and Cross-Currents: The Promise of Electromedicine, the Perils of Electropollution, wrote an article titled The Relationship Between Bioelectromagnetics and Psychic Phenomena that was published in the American Society for Psychical Research, ASPR Newsletter, 16, Spring 1990. In it he proclaimed forthrightly that the earths geomagnetic field and living organisms show that a firm [psychic] link has been established between them. Another physician, Edgar Wilson, wrote in the Journal for the International Society for the Study of Subtle Energies and Energy Medicine: Humans seem to possess an extremely complex biomagnetic energy field that operates outside of the nervous system alone. That is, our mind-field is the mind-field of our Sun's solar system first and foremost and then the Earthbut also beyond into outer space.
To the point: Space is Cosmic Consciousness itself!
Indeed I wonder if NASA is on the right track with respect to space exploration, as the trance state-of-mind may have a teleportation capacity that has not been explored yet. For as the 1960s Mars Mission astronaut Brian OLeary, Ph.D. asks in his book Exploring Inner and Outer Space, Can the trance state create the extraordinarily real experience of movement at will through space, time, and other dimensions? Just as our alleged UFO visitors appear to be able to operate with regard to outer space? Will outer space travel become easier once we realize that the farthest reaches of all space may be visited through our inner space?
That is to say, our cosmos is a holograma whole message.
In fact, it was this mystical trance state of mindcosmic consciousnessthat Apollo astronaut Edgar Mitchell encountered up close and personal during some of his space flights. That unforgettable sense of living felt presence during his Moon Mission led him to launch, pardon the pun, the Institute of Noetic Sciences in Palo Alto, California upon his return to our planet to formally explore the outer reaches of our own inner space further. This ultimately inspired a colleague of his, author of Pole Shift, John White, to identify this new breed of humanity they were contemplating by the Latin phrase Homo Noeticusor a person that has precognitiveremote viewingskills. Dr. White adds that Precognition is [merely] the scientific term for paranormal knowledge of future events.
Of course, upon hindsight we can see clearly that we have had many folks throughout world history display these blossoming psychic talents for catching glimpses of the past and the future in the present moment.
In particular, I am referring not only to shamans but to Christian trance mystics too such as Edgar Cayce (1877-1945). He is someone who would fit this category of visionary and is in fact a person White studied for his timely predictions of a pole shift in our near term. Cayce indicated a time would come when the planet would be so polluted that it will begin to eliminate the threat to life posed by humanity through a catastrophic series of Earth Changes. Beyond a reasonable doubt, that time is now, and, again, it is the role of the mystic, prophet, and shaman to warn the world of looming catastrophes and how to prepare for them. In my book I make recommendations yet I'd be remiss if I did not state on-the-record that I see all coastlines of our globe at great risk for cataclysms. The reasons are many not just tidal waves and super storms.
Nonetheless, here is the rest of my story: Caycea.k.a., the sleeping prophetwho had his own shamanic trance abilities and insights into natural disasters yet was optimistic. He repeatedly stated forcefully that mind is the builder of both physical and spiritual reality. So, as I have expressed above, it is my hypothesis that the goal of evolution is to make the contents of our collectively unconscious mind-field collectively conscious in order for us to employ these visions in our everyday affairs and even change the outcomes of disasters to more positive, survivable, situations.
How do we do that you ask: Can you say A-U-M?
Robert Keith Wallace, Ph.D., an avid researcher of altered states of mind, reports in his book, The Physiology of Consciousness, that as people develop skills in trance meditation techniques they change their perception of reality through shifting into higher realms, and these subjects sometimes describe their experience in terms of a momentary feeling that the breath has stopped and the body is filled with energy and pure awareness. So what happens in trance that does not happen otherwise?
Physicist Claude Swanson confirms in The Synchronized Universe: New Science of the Paranormal, Entering deep [trance] meditation states causes a synchronization of the vibrations of the DNA in the body, and it is very likely that this is one of the keys to psychic superpowers. Phase acts like a fifth dimension which distinguished one parallel reality, one universe from another. We become enlightened, in other words, to future events and our role in them by downloading more subtle, faster vibrating electromagnetic waveforms of information. In blunt terms, you don't need a human brain to be conscious! That is a filter so that you don't become overwhelmed by too much input at once.
What is information? It is solar energy, the biophoton fields of sunlight, within our DNA.
Highly-respected German biophysicist Fritz-Albert Popp suggests that DNA may be the mind molecule. Anthropologist Jeremy Narby, Ph.D., author of The Cosmic Serpent: DNA and the Origins of Knowledge, says that Professor Popp confirmed in a telephone conversation with him recently from his European laboratory: Yes, consciousness could be the electromagnetic field constituted by the sum of these [DNA] emissions.
Award-winning science writer Michael Talbot said in his now classic book Holographic Universe, The closest we can come to describing what they [fields] are, is to say that they are spatial structures in the fabric of space itself. Do you get the implications of what all these folks are saying to us? What these solar fields of light are is non-physicalpure energybut what these fields do is very physical; they create molecules of matter, our physical reality! The bottom-line then is we are light beings of information compressed into meat bodies in order to have a limited experience of creation! There is so much more that it would literally blow our minds to witness it, if unprepared by those that have gone before us.
Dr. Robert Wallace adds, In terms of DNA the optimal state of physiological functioning is one in which there is a fully integrated and unimpeded flow of information from the DNA to all parts of the body. What type of information is stored within our bodies? It is our myths of heaven, our former condition prior to being born on this planet and as physicist J. Nigro Sansonese reiterates in The Body of Myth: Mythology, Shamanic Trance, and Sacred Geography of the Body: Myths make use of the special knowledge of our bodies life processes to tell us about ourselves, about who we are and whence we have come.
My greatest revelation from my close encounter with my buddy George Viguet, after all was said and done, was that I saw the grand underlying and overriding purpose of evolution: To see into space! That is, we want to interact consciously with the Kingdom of Heaven; that is our task to fulfill, the flip side of the coin, as Jesus stated through his teaching parablesmyths. In the words of the Gnostic scriptures: We want to make the two [realms of existence] one again. Thy Kingdom Come Thy Will Be Done on Earth as it is in Heaven.
Again, how do we do this now?
Scholar Stevan L. Davies gives us his opinions for using trance rituals in Jesus the Healer: Possession, Trance, and the Origins of Christianity: Religious trance perception may be understood to be the perception of some other supernatural place beyond this world or, much more probably for the case of Jesus and his associates, it may be understood to be a radically revised mode of perception of this world. The Gospel of Thomas (113) gives this account: His disciples asked him, On what day will the Kingdom come? [Jesus] said, It will not come by your expecting it. They will not say, Look here or Look there, but the Kingdom of the Father is spread out on the earth and people do not see it.
Why don't we see that the Kingdom of Heaven for human beings is linked to the Earth and thus our dead loved ones are still here as well? And what does this have to do with the trance of the prophet, mystic, and shaman in terms of accessing useful information for us in terms of predicting our future?
In a word, everything!
For heaven is located in the sky above our heads and the way to communicate with its citizens is through the use of trance as that is the synchronized wavelength frequency of their DNA in its ideal state too without a physical brain-body to limit it. In other words, DNA is an immortal liquid-crystal computer, a transmitter-receiver of information as I document in my book comprehensively, DNA processes the solar ray information broadcast into space by the Galactic Center via our Sun! Our Sun is thus likewise a filter for the consciousness of the Milky Way star clusters and so on and so forth throughout the cosmos. More than building-blocks of matter and molecules, we can now see the building-blocks of mind are the solar systems too!
Hence, the logic behind the worship of Sun Gods!
This is what the Mayans and Egyptians knew about these matters as physicist Thomas G. Brophy, Ph.D., revealed in his new book The Origin Map: Discovery of a Prehistoric, Megalithic, Astrophysical Map and Sculpture of the Universe, after he painstakingly dissected the purpose of pyramids and a related ancient stone circle in the Sahara Desert 100 miles west of Aswan, Egypt called Nabta Playa. Such a function, Dr. Brophy proclaims, seems to involve certain alignments among the super massive black hole at the Galactic Center, the Big Bang, the Sun (probably at vernal equinox sunrise), Earths axis, and human beings. This may involve purely physical processes on one end of the spectrum, or involve human consciousness on the other end of the spectrum.
Islamic scholar Henry Corbin hit the proverbial nail on the head in his text Spiritual Body and Celestial Earth: The Heavens are light and are here now but we can not see them. What this teaches us is that it is the business of the rest of the community, its Earthly members, to attain this point of view, this spiritual level. This is exactly what it means to rise, to be transported to the heights. It has nothing to do with flying away and arriving somewhere in Heaven. Nor does it mean that the physical exitus of death is necessary to take you out of this Earthly elemental world we perceive with our senses and help you reach this other world. No, it means to get there while remaining in this world. Unfortunately, we are not tuned to the sky presently, and therein lies the purpose of the precession of the equinoxes and the shift of the ages from Dark to Goldenrapture into the music of the spheres and the reunification of Heaven on Earth!
In closing, it is my genuine heartfelt desire that you can see why such traumas as the after-death communication and the near-death experience invoke such shock and awe when they do reveal the heavenly secrets of the magnetosphere to us. For we are called to apply that wisdom to our war-ravaged world here and now as it is facing a cataclysmic crisis in climate and consciousness in era-2012. That is in fact the mission for the Shamans of the 21st Century!
