Interesting Near-Death Experiences

Carl Jung: “It seemed to me that I was high up in space. Far below I saw the globe of the Earth, bathed in a gloriously blue light. I saw the deep blue sea and the continents. Far below my feet lay Ceylon, and in the distance ahead of me the subcontinent of India. My field of vision did not include the whole Earth, but its global shape was plainly distinguishable and its outlines shone with a silvery gleam through that wonderful blue light….”

Edgar Cayce on Dreams

“All subconscious minds are in contact with one another. Through the subconscious, dreams may place us in attunement with those in the physical realm or those in the spiritual realm. We may be visited in the night by discarnate entities for many reasons: they may seek to give us assurance about their well-being in other realms of existence; they may come seeking our aid through prayer; they may come to bring us information which may be very helpful or limited; or they may come to influence us with their own desires or perspectives….”

How to Lucid Dream

“Lucid Dreaming is the art of becoming aware that you are dreaming, whilst dreaming. When you experience this you find your dream-life instantly becomes more exciting. For some it becomes a new resource of creativity; for others, it is the first step on a new path to spiritual unfolding. Others yet again see it as an opportunity for wish-fulfillment: to indulge in epic adventures, exercise Matrix- or Inception-like superpowers or pursue limitless romantic and sexual pleasures.”

Dreams and the Afterlife

“Whatever you call it, our dreams are actual ‘afterlife’ experiences. Many people are not aware of this and pay no attention to their dreams or try to remember them or learn from them. This is unfortunate because we spend roughly one third of our lives asleep and our dreams are a wealth of spiritual information if we can only transfer it from our subconscious mind into our conscious mind.”

Creativity and Dreaming

Rupert Sheldrake: “Dreams involve the appearance of stories and symbols and images that we don’t create with our conscious minds. In fact, we usually just forget this whole wonderful display of psychic creativity that happens for each of us nightly. When we remember our dreams, they’re bizarre and unexpected. It seems almost impossible to have an expected dream. This curious feature raises the question of where dreams come from.”

Dream Work with the Dying

“All the sacred traditions of the world give an especially privileged place to dreams and dreaming as a means of self-understanding and communication with and from the Divine. In addition, every culture of the world reveals some version of the ancient archetypal metaphor: ‘sleep = death’, and ‘dreams = the experience of the afterlife’.”

Spiritual Dreaming: A Nightly Death

Omraam Mikhaël Aïvanhov: “When a disciple follows the teaching of a spiritual master, this teaching does not speak solely to the conscious part of his being. Even at night while he is sleeping, the true disciple goes to join his master with his astral body and continues to be instructed by him. He reads the most sacred books in the libraries of the universe and attends the most magnificent ceremonies.”

Prayer

Whether you’re “religious” or not, consider spending the last few minutes before sleep in a positive frame of mind, thinking about what you would love to have in your life, thinking about questions you’d love to have answers to, sending love to people — praying, in a way. This small bit of preparation will help you make a good entrance into your dreamworld and is good practice for a happy afterlife.

When You Have the Right Vibe, It’s Not a Coincidence: Synchonicities, Energy Healing, and Other Strangeness in the Field

Amy L. Lansky, Ph.D.: “One piece of evidence for the holographic nature of nonstandard fields that have been proposed in recent years — the zero-point field (a candidate for the unified field), the psi field of psychic phenomena, Ervin Laszlo’s Akashic field, and the morphic field proposed by Rupert Sheldrake — is that they all share a common feature: sensitivity to similarity in vibration.”

How to Practice Meditation for Lucid Dreaming

[Scientific studies] “reveal direct links between meditation and lucid dreaming. Both practices involve higher states of awareness (up to the gamma band or 40 Hz) and help you to become more habitually focused, self aware and reflective. Both improve your dream recall, visualization skills and your ability to become lucid automatically, so that even a simple breathing meditation practiced daily will help you achieve profound relaxation and increase your chances of having lucid dreams.”
