The Great Mysteries: Believing, Knowing, & Proving

Growing up, I never thought twice about whether there was an afterlife, or if it was possible to see into the past or the future, or how one could see things and events at a remote distance. My mother was a psychic, as was her mother and her mother’s mother before her. I knew as a child that I had inherited the “second sight.” These things were an everyday experience in my family; I was aware of ghosts, had well documented prophetic dreams, and learned to remotely view people and places at a distance. As a result, when people asked me whether I believed in things such as life after death, the paranormal, distance healing, or the mind’s ability to affect matter, I would tell them, “I don’t believe it, I know it.”

It was only later that I started to wonder about the source of these phenomena, or to look for explanations. I knew that we were all capable of doing the things my family did and I began teaching classes in psychic development. It was in an effort to answer some of my student’s questions that I started reading the research from leading scientists, physicists, and medical doctors. I became familiar with the work of William A. Tiller , Russell Targ, Peter Russell, Robert Moss, Lynne McTaggart, and others. I learned that much of what I had experienced throughout my life could be explained or replicated, and that there existed controlled studies with measurable results. Finally, for every person who asked me, “Where’s your proof?” I could now point to robust research.

In my quest for answers, a few years ago I read Entangled Minds by Dean Radin , and then was fortunate enough to interview the author. Dr. Radin told me about new, marvelous studies being done, and about the organization IONS (Institute of Noetic Science) . Just recently I found out that he has taken another great step to advance the cause — it turns out that he, too, has been plagued by people asking him, “Where’s the proof?” often enough that he has compiled a list of the latest research.Topics covered include distance healing, intention experiments, telepathy and ESP, mediumship, precognition and more.

I believe that whether you are a believer, a knower, or a doubter you will find this list remarkable reading. Still, if I have learned anything over the years it is that “proof”can be a funny thing and that the real naysayers will refuse to believe no matter what they read or see. At the same time, since I and countless others are already having these experiences, it gives me great satisfaction to know there is scientific proof.

Changing Lives: Sharing Our Transformative Experiences

A few weeks ago I wrote about a New York Times interview with Barbara Ehrenreich, author of several books including “Nickel and Dimed.” The interview focused on her most recent book, “Living With a Wild God,” a memoir detailing the author’s transformative experiences when she was in her teens. Having had numerous experiences myself, I found that her account caught my interest. In the last few years I have noted an increase in the number of people stepping forward to tell their sometimes other-worldly stories of wonder, enlightenment, and awe…

Earthing: Reconnecting with the Power of the Earth

I first heard of “Earthing,” the concept of connecting to and gaining energy from direct contact with the Earth, several years ago. I learned that the ancient yogis and Christian mystics knew about this great source of power and for that reason developed practices that involved going out into caves or the desert and sleeping on the ground. It not only improved their meditations but reportedly healed sickness and extended longevity.

Looking at Sacred Geometry

I had a startling vision a couple of decades ago that led me to research Sacred Geometry. When I did, I was astonished to find that the beautiful symbols I saw in my vision have been known about and studied for thousands of years. From the Ancient Chinese geomancers to Plato, from the Egyptians and the Hindus, through to the modern work of Nassim Harimein (video), the same powerful geometric shapes recur over and over again.

Cooking With Qi & Conquering Any Disease

| by Merryn Jose

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. Also years ago, I cut out those foods that are known to damage our systems. I thought I was doing well until I heard about Qigong Master Jeff Primack and his food based healing system.

The Miracle of Castor Oil Packs by Merryn José

| 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.”

Validating Your Spiritual Experience

| by Merryn Jose

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.

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.”
