Validating Your Spiritual Experience

Recently I’ve been visiting the website, NHNE – Near Death Experience Network, at www.nhneneardeath.ning.com , and watching the wonderful videos there. Hundreds of people are now sharing their stories of miraculous recovery and spiritual renewal in a public format that wasn’t possible years ago. This is a great departure from the cloak of secrecy or shame that surrounded these experiences in the past, where people were afraid to come forward and would stay silent for fear of ridicule, job loss, or worse.

Many years ago I, too, had what they now call an “STE,” or Spiritual Transformative Experience. Like others, I only told my mother and a few close friends at the time. In my case, I was fortunate in that it was not preceeded by an accident or life threatening illness, instead it came seemingly out of nowhere one evening. Just like a Near Death Experience, I was enveloped in light, spoke with guides, and felt the ecstatic bliss of unconditional love. At the time, there was no name for this phenomena, other than an “awakening,” or perhaps “kundalini rising.” All I knew was that I returned from the experience changed, and over a period of years became aware of a new purpose to my life.

Now it seems hundreds of thousands of people are having this experience, as documented by websites such as this, and bestsellers by Raymond Moody, Eben Alexander, Steve Taylor, and Anita Moorjani. I find it tremendously validating to know that others have been transformed in the same manner as I, and that it is acceptable now to talk about these events. Over the years I have made it my mission to educate others about the mystical worlds, and now I am writing a book detailing a lifetime of psychic and spiritual experiences (shared in part with my late mother, the gifted clairvoyant, Maureen Treanor) that I hope others will find helpful. As I have learned over the years, sharing our stories is how we can truly validate our spiritual experiences and help others to open the door to their own ‘awakening.’

Meditation, Mystical Experiences & Brain Mapping

| by Merryn Jose

I am a huge fan of Dr. Joe Dispenza’s books, CDs and DVDs . First featured on the documentary, What the Bleep do we Know? this leading neuroscientist and lecturer has written such best sellers as Evolve Your Brain: The Science of Changing Your Mind (Health Communications, Inc., 2007) and Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself: How to Lose Your Mind and Create a New One (Hay House, 2012). You Are The Placebo (Hay House, 2014), his latest book, builds on his previous work. Recently, I was delighted to come across a wonderful new outlet for Dr. Dispenza’s work: www.quantumworld.tv. On there I found a video, Brain, Mind, and the Placebo Effect….

The Power of Homeopathy

| by Merryn Jose

Recently, I was shocked to read an article by Dr. Mercola stating that the Federal Trade Commission was cracking down on this well-respected form of natural medicine….Several years ago I was feeling unwell, and couldn’t pinpoint the source. I was chronically tired, unable to sleep through the night, had poor digestion, and finally broke out with eczema on my face and neck. Nothing I did seemed to help. Then a dear friend of mine recommended I see George Vithoulkas, the renowned homeopathist who treated Krishnamurti. I knew that homeopathy treated health issues by using minute amounts of ingredients similar to what caused the problem – what practitioners call treating “like with like.”

Like so many of us, I’ve been watching my nutrition and eating healthfully for years, buying only organic food and the very freshest ingredients possible.

The Miracle of Castor Oil Packs by Merryn José

Merryn’s personal experience using castor oil packs for healing. ‘What I find most fascinating is that all parts of the castor plant are extremely poisonous to eat, but when the oil is extracted from the seed of the Ricinus communis plant, the poison remains in the seed, and it becomes “the oil that heals.”

Going Beyond Our Genes: Bruce Lipton and the Study of Epigenetics

I first became interested in Bruce Lipton when I saw one of his broadcasts on Conscious TV. I found his lectures on Biology and Belief, and the power we have to affect our genes and DNA, to be absolutely fascinating. The idea that we can “switch off” a gene, or the predispostion to a disease fits with everything I know about the mind-body connection, and everything I believe to be true about the importance of mind over matter.
