Psychics, Channelers, Mediums, and Spiritualists ....oh my !

Source

Off the top of my head there's one that I feel like I grew-up with, and feel he's the father of all this 'far-out' stuff, other than the Shamans of the world and of course Nostradamus, why yes, Edgar Cayce. Most of you probably thought of the same person. We must be psychics! Or we share the same age and/or literacy.

The first I heard that name was in the late sixties (or so) when I was just approaching the 'teen years' of my life. My parents and I had sighed up for a course called 'Mind Dynamics,' and sure enough the place was "full of the crazies," as my father put it.

We were new in the area and it was my Mother's idea to get us out and meet with the others who lived in the development called, Panther Valley. One of the best ideas my Mother had, and just in time. Dad had started to teach himself Yoga and I was getting into meditation thanks to the Beatles visit to Mahesh Yogi. Or was it the other way around?

It always seemed that way in my life; I would start doing something or thinking about something different or out of the main-stream, and before I knew it other people or celebrities started doing it. Meditation and Yoga seemed this way as did vegetarianism, taking vitamins and working-out.

There, at the first class of Mind Dynamics, a person brought her book collection of Edgar Cayce. She displayed them everyday she came to class. And, with every person she met with any sickness and/or abnormality or a disease with their relatives or friends or acquaintance that came to the surface in conversation, she went to her books for the answer to their problems. She instinctively knew what book and what chapter and page to find it. She was as busy as the teacher.

Mind Dynamics was simply a way to connect 'you the mind' to 'you the body' with easy exercises of self-visualization and discovery. I and my family owe it to Mind Dynamics for showing us, and proving to us that there is something special going on in our bodies and minds. We were never the same afterwards and to this day continue to think 'out of the box' not only with medicine and doctors but also with day to day life as well as spiritually and politically. We learned that our bodies want to be healthy and whole as much as we want it to be, and we need not to look 'on the outside' for all the answers. And also, and probably more important, we learned and witnessed that we to have the gift to perform these miracles, or how I put it earlier; this far-out' stuff.

One lesson, and there were many that blew me away, was at the end of one of the classes. To this day it still gives me pause and reminds me, when doubt sticks it's ugly head in my business, that I am as gifted as I let myself be. The teacher, his name was Nick, showed us a hat before we left and told us that their are pieces of paper with numbers on them in the hat. He told us that the numbers are from '1' to '30' (there were thirty of us) and we each have a different number. He said the next time we meet you will pick a number out of the hat. He told us to go home and think about what number we are going to pick from the hat. Immediately after he said this the number '4' shot into my head.

After class, and on the way home, more numbers rolled into my 'brain pan.' By the time I got back to class the next week several numbers were rolling around in my head like in a bingo ball cage. I'm not even sure anymore what number I told Nick before I reached in the hat, but it wasn't the number I took out of the hat. You know what number I took out of the hat, and I should have known to stick with my initial number that came from the heart. It went to show me forever more that my first thought is usually right, and I should have trusted myself instead of analyzing it until it doesn't exist anymore.

From Wikipedia:

Mind Dynamics has been called a major forerunner of large group awareness trainings.The organization's methods and techniques helped to influence an industry of trainings that would follow it.Mind Dynamics has been compared to Dale Carnegie, and encounter groups.Mind Dynamics trained businessmen in personal development techniques,but relied on unique activities rather than academic theories.The coursework also utilized techniques that focused on visualization, and meditation. Snider wrote that Mind Dynamics was intended to prod individuals and goad them to improve upon themselves.

Edgar Cayce

"Dreams are today's answers to tomorrow's questions." -Edgar Cayce

For forty-three years of his adult life, Edgar Cayce demonstrated the uncanny ability to put himself into some kind of self-induced sleep state by lying down on a couch, closing his eyes, and folding his hands over his stomach. This state of relaxation and meditation enabled him to place his mind in contact with all time and space. From this state he could respond to questions nomater how diverse they were.

David Wilcock.

Fitting that I should place him after Cayce.

On his website, Wilcock chronicles a lifetime of experiencing psychic phenomenon starting at age two and stretching into today.(2) It is also on his website, DivineCosmos.com, that he asserts that he was Edgar Cayce in a past life.

He has also claimed to have had an out-of-body experience at the age of five and a number of psychic visions. Over the course of his adult life, it seems that Wilcock has been able to leverage these “abilities” for a profit.

Darryl Anka (my favorite)

Anka's channeling accrued after two UFO sightings within one week of each other and subsequent experiences. He is an internationally known channeller having conducted seminars around the world for the past 30 years.

Anka claims that he began to communicate, through trance-channeling, with an extra-terrestrial entity called Bashar in 1983. He describes Bashar as existing in a parallel reality, in a time frame that we perceive as the future.The monologues and dialogues with Bashar cover a wide range of topics including human psychology, planetary evolution, metaphysics, and extra-terrestrials.Occasionally, Anka will act as a guest speaker in conferences related to issues such as ET contact. Anka also claims to have channeled other entities, and the entity Bashar has also been channeled by other mediums.

Jane Roberts

One day while experimenting with the Ouija board with her husband, Rob, Jane encountered an entity who called himself Seth. This was the beginning of a relationship in which Seth provided a wealth of information to Roberts including what happens when people die, how to contact people who have crossed over, how people can create their own realities, and how to develop psychic ability. Roberts published several books with the information Seth channeled through her with her most popular being Seth Speaks.

Esther Hicks

Esther Hicks received her first communication from a group of non-physical entities, known as Abraham, in 1985. Abraham empowered Hicks with a wealth of information particularly on the Law of Attraction.

The hit movie, The Secret, is based on the teachings of Abraham. Hicks has written several books including the #1 New York Times bestseller, Money and the Law of Attraction.

From the Magic of Being -News Letter:

Swaying With the Breeze -Message from Archangel Michael
Channelled Through and Written by Carolyn Ann O’Riley

Many people in society today work at jobs they don't like, and find themselves with little or no time for activities that increase the quality of their lives. Such people are being kept out of alignment with their inner selves. Traditionally, society has pressured people into conformity. Peer pressure to conform to an immediate social group begins at school because, from an early age, people are taught that they should conform to outside standards.

Fear is a Frequency -Peggy Black and the ‘team’

Smile and stretch for you are growing upward with each breath that you take. Your energy fields are expanding and growing in all directions. Very much like a beautiful lotus blossom opening its petals as it gives gratitude to the sun for nurturing it. With every clearing and releasing exercise you perform you are allowing more and more of your own higher energy to come in, assisting you to reach upward to the heavens where you are evolving higher and higher on your own evolutionary ladder.

Crisis, What Crisis? -By Neil Crofts

We are here once again to embrace you with our love and light. We are here to acknowledge you as you continue to anchor and balance the energies coming forth with awareness and the willingness to offer a shift. Your planet continues to express the expansion of consciousness as the extreme weather conditions place many in distressing conditions.

Greater Manifesting Alignment
Channeled by Holly Hawkins Marwood - Transcribed by Paul Marwood

Working on a project for a client last week I came across the short film “Overview“. It describes the effect of seeing Earth from the outside: The realisation, for astronauts, that we are sustained on a tiny bubble in a vast universe and seeing Earth as a single organism on which we are all cells co-creating the future of our bubble. What kind of future do we choose to create? Much of that choice is defined by our identification, calibration and decisions in crisis.


Lust and Love -Pamela Kribbe -channels Mary Magdalene

“Greetings Dear Ones, We are the High Council of Orion.
What we would like to speak with you about today is this idea of living your future reality as we are often speaking about, yet with the specific area of focus today being that of really connecting to what it is that “You feel that you want and you need, and your desire to have what you would consider an ideal life.”

Midway Point 2013 Angelic Star Human Forerunners
New Earth Shift Symptoms 333 -By Shekina Rose

Dear men and women, I salute you all. I am here in your midst as a soul, as a woman, as a sister. I am one with you, and having been human, I know from within all the feelings you have today. They are not foreign to me.

Conversations with an ET By Tom T. Moore

The first part of the year had a different energy frequency in the Mother's way; it took time for things to get moving, intuitive, reflective, life reviewing, lots of stopping and going. You may have thought, when will the New Earth begin? The rest of this year will flow more powerfully in the water element essence of the Divine Mother in many ways; know the bridge has been created and you are walking to the other side.

Adventures of a Clairvoyant Traveller by Damiana Sage Miller

For the past five years I have communicated telepathically with a member of my soul group or “cluster,” who’s having a life on a water planet in the Sirius B Star System. I’ve found you can be across the universe and are able to instantly receive what are called “thought packets” from another being. Naturally it helps if that being is connected to you, as my “brother on another planet” Antura is.

Dimensional Ascension By Peter Borys Jr.

I'm on my grid overseeing the universe. I can throw vibrations out into different areas. I can draw the Earth in and send positive vibrations to it. Some people feel them, others are too busy with their daily lives; they don't notice them. I can bring in other planets too and do the same.

COSMIC EVENTS F0R JUNE AND JULY -By Soluntra King

We are living in a time of a change, shift, and elevation in the organized level of the frequency pattern on Earth. For hundreds of thousands of years, humanity has experienced life on Earth in a 3D frequency field. Thus, the human soul and mind-body has been decoding, perceiving, interpreting, and experiencing this reality through the frequency of a 3D hologram.

Hi John.

I don´t know any of the people you talk about as I´m not American but do believe we have spirits around us and have felt their presence on more than one occasion. I have written much on that particular subject.

It´s my belief that our 6th sense is related in part to our spirits communicating messages to us. Non believers in anything other than flesh and blood provable reality really aught to ask them selves why they use the phrase " someone was looking out for me " when they have narrowly avoided a nasty accident.

I truly believe that those of us open to the possibility that there´s more going on than we can see or prove are indeed the lucky one´s.

Great hub John, and good to see you publishing again.
