IAC Out of Body Experience Conference May 23-25

This May, 2017, the International Academy of Consciousness (IAC) will be conducting eight experiments aimed at validating the Out-of-Body Experience as an objective phenomenon. The experiments, held in Miami, will be conducted in cooperation with an independent third-party scientific organization and will take place during IAC’s Projective Field Workshop. The IAC aims to increase public awareness of research on parapsychic phenomena and also to help people to develop their skills in this area.

Last year The London Express reported that a breakthrough study in Sweden had shown that out of body experiences are real. Many people have claimed to have experienced the phenomenon when they come close to death or when undergoing surgery, for example, claiming that they can see everything that is going on around them from a different perspective while unconscious. Medical experts have debated for some time whether it is real, but a breakthrough study has seemed to confirm the existence of the phenomenon.Neuroscientists from Sweden’s Karolinska Institutet created an out-of-body illusion when they placed study participants in a brain scanner, and used an illusion to ‘teleport’ the individuals to different locations in a room. Arvid Guterstam, lead author of the present study, said: “In a matter of seconds, the brain merges the sensation of touch and visual input from the new perspective, resulting in the illusion of owning the stranger’s body and being located in that body’s position in the room, outside the participant’s physical body.”Within the IAC framework, the Out-of-Body Experience can be used as an important tool to help individuals see for themselves that they are more than the physical body, to overcome their limitations, expand self-knowledge, and even overcome the fear of death.See also: Robert Monroe’s books, Journeys Out of the Body, Far Journeys, and Ultimate JourneySee also: William Buhlman’s video, The Out of Body Experience

Crystal Healing – Getting Up Close & Personal With Your Stones

| by Nia Kallhof

Over the last seven years as a Crystal Resonance Therapist (CRTh) I have learned that the more I work with and open to my stones, the more I understand how much they are teaching me. Most importantly my crystal allies have taught me how to perceive, hold and transmit energy. Because each stone holds a very clear steady coherent energy field which is unique to itself, they are great teachers of what energy feels like to me personally. I can take my time and fully tune into, and resonate with, that particular vibration.

The Path to Higher Consciousness by Mary O’Malley

From www.consciouslifestylemag.com, Mary O’Malley writes, “The healing you long for doesn’t come from changing anything. It comes from the ability to see and be with what is, for who you are is awareness. You are the space that your storyteller is happening in. As awareness, you can see the spells (limiting beliefs), feelings and sensations that pass through you all day long rather than being lost in the stories they generate….” The following excerpt on higher consciousness is from Mary O’Malleys awareness expanding book What’s in the Way is the Way. – See more at: http://www.consciouslifestylemag.com/the-six-levels-of-higher-consciousness-how-to-make-the-shift/#sthash.iWeCKeao.dpuf

Pure-Incense.com- Temple Grade Incense & Oils

| by Merlian News

Adi-guru Das has been attracted to incense from a very young age and eventually as a monk with the Krishna movement, “I was able to travel in India and seek out better and better incenses. I was later given charge of supplying incense for our London temples and other temples in Europe. What is so special about incense and food that is offered to Krishna is that the commercial element is removed as no-one really wants to offer something to God and cut corners! Therefore you will find that this temple grade incense is of a remarkable quality.”

Society and Sanity by Alan Watts – Excerpt from Psychotherapy East & West

A society is people living together in a certain pattern of behavior — a pattern which makes such physical traces as roads and the structure of towns, codes of law and language, tools and artifacts, all of which lay down “channels” determining the future behavior of the group. Moreover, a society is not “made up” of people in the same way that a house is composed of bricks, or even in the same way that an army is gathered together by recruitment.
