Dr. Eben Alexander, author of international phenomenon Proof of Heaven, shares the next phase of his journey to understand the true nature of consciousness and how to cultivate a state of harmony with the universe and our higher purpose. In 2008, Dr. Eben Alexander's brain was severely damaged by a devastating case of bacterial meningitis, and he lapsed into a weeklong coma. It was almost certainly a death sentence, but he miraculously survived and brought back with him an astounding story. During those 7 days in coma, he was plunged into the deepest realms of consciousness and came to understand profound truths about the universe we inhabit. What he learned changed everything he knew about the brain, mind, and consciousness and drove him to ask a question confounding the entire scientific community: How do you explain the origins of consciousness if it is not a byproduct of the brain? His challenge relates to a revolutionary shift now underway within our modern scientific understanding. Ultimately, direct experience is key to fully understanding how we are all connected through the binding force of unconditional love and its unlimited power to heal. In Living in a Mindful Universe, the New York Times bestselling author of Proof of Heaven and The Map of Heaven shares his insights into the true nature of consciousness. Embracing his radically new worldview, he began a committed program of personal exploration into nonlocal consciousness. Along the way, he met Karen Newell, who had spent most of her lifetime living the worldview he had only just discovered was possible. Her personal knowledge came from testing various techniques and theories as part of her daily routine. With Living in a Mindful Universe, they teach you how to tap into your greater mind and the power of the heart to facilitate enhancement of healing, relationships, creativity, guidance, and more. Using various modalities related to meditation and mindfulness, you will gain the power to access that infinite source of knowing so vital to us all, ultimately enriching every facet of our lives.

'Mindblowing' Michael Pollan Why do we know so much more about the cosmos than our own consciousness? Are there limits to the scientific method? Why do we assume that only science, mathematics and technology reveal truth? The Flip shows us what happens when we realise that consciousness is fundamental to the cosmos and not some random evolutionary accident or surface cognitive illusion; that everything is alive, connected, and 'one'. We meet the people who have made this visionary, intuitive leap towards new forms of knowledge: Mark Twain's prophetic dreams, Marie Curie's séances, Einstein's cosmically attuned mind. But these forms of knowledge are not archaic; indeed, they are essential in a universe that has evolved specifically to be understandable by the consciousnesses we inhabit. The Flip peels back the layers of our beliefs about the world to reveal a visionary, new way of understanding ourselves and everything around us, with huge repercussions for how we live our lives. After all, once we have flipped, we understand that the cosmos is not just human. The human is also cosmic.

Courageous scientists challenge the dominant paradigm of reality. Why are they so brave and what does their research reveal? What is reality? Is there more than we know from our five senses? Vanguard scientists believe there is more than we see so they formulate a non-materialist paradigm that expands human potential, to include mind and matter interaction. Since going against the dominant worldview provokes opposition, this book explores the personal backgrounds of the scientists to find out why they are so courageous. We learn that there is another dimension that allows for enhanced abilities. Based on interviews conducted by Gayle Kimball, The Mysteries of Reality: Dialogues with Visionary Scientists reports on the current research and personal characteristics of visionaries from around the world.

How can we transcend our tribal, philosophical, and religious differences? Is it possible to develop a global consciousness to resolve the peril to our biosphere and other human-made existential crises? Become Conscious of Wholeness: Humanity’s Only Future explores how connecting human consciousness with Universal Consciousness will give individuals and societies a sense of being complete, not fragmented. Accessing Universal Consciousness, the fundamental wisdom, intelligence, and love in the Universe, will align their identity and purpose and free them from limiting beliefs and fears. Universal Consciousness is the organizing, unifying force, beyond space and time, filled with the creative potential from which our diverse philosophies, religions, and primordial traditions emerged. When Consciousness is understood from multiple scientific, spiritual, psychological, and mystical perspectives, what is of ultimate value becomes clear—our relationships with each other and the Earth, our essential Wholeness. The reader will explore various portals to Universal Consciousness, drawing upon their own mystical and spiritual experience to develop a more holistic Self. Specific action steps are also presented to reframe religion, reimagine education and mental wellbeing, and reform the business organizations, government agencies, and divisive politics that perpetuate a fragmented view of reality.

Human Interaction with the Divine, the Sacred, and the Deceased brings together cutting-edge empirical and theoretical contributions from scholars in fields including psychology, theology, ethics, neuroscience, medicine, and philosophy, to examine how and why humans engage in, or even seek spiritual experiences and connection with the immaterial world. In this richly interdisciplinary volume, Plante and Schwartz recognize human interaction with the divine and departed as a cross-cultural and historical universal that continues to concern diverse disciplines. Accounting for variances in belief and human perception and use, the book is divided into four major sections: personal experience; theological consideration; medical, technological, and scientific considerations; and psychological considerations with chapters addressing phenomena including prayer, reincarnation, sensed presence, and divine revelations. Featuring scholars specializing in theology, psychology, medicine, neuroscience, and ethics, this book provides a thoughtful, compelling, evidence-based, and contemporary approach to gain a grounded perspective on current understandings of human interaction with the divine, the sacred, and the deceased. Of interest to believers, questioners, and unbelievers alike, this volume will be key reading for researchers, scholars, and academics engaged in the fields of religion and psychology, social psychology, behavioral neuroscience, and health psychology. Readers with a broader interest in spiritualism, religious and non-religious movements will also find the text of interest.

This book is quasi-autobiographical, leaning on links to music from the sixties, seventies, eighties, and nineties. Woven throughout are references to self-isolation in lockdown, a journey through the dark night of the soul toward enlightenment, and a growing awareness that those of us who open our hearts to peace and love are being called on to offer it now. I share a journal about love and loss—sudden separation from a long-term relationship—and the aftermath, leading to a new beginning. I provide ideas to support transformation from books, websites, music, some wild metaphysical blogs, and YouTube videos if publicly available—check for links in the ebook by tapping or clicking on the titles that are bold and italicized. The pivotal piece in this book is that I’ve used the music and techniques to transform my life and access wisdom, joy, and bliss. This inner change has led to outer change, impacting my understanding of reality and the nature of the COVID-19 phenomenon. There are some twists in this story I could never have predicted. Truth is stranger than fiction.

Precognition is the scientific name for the knowledge or perception of the future, obtained through extrasensory means. Often called 'premonition', precognition is the most frequently reported of all extrasensory perception (ESP) experiences, occurring most often in dreams. It may also occur spontaneously in waking visions, auditory hallucinations, flashing thoughts entering the mind, the sense of ''''knowing'''' and physiological changes. Combining science and practice, Theresa and Dr Julia unravel the mystery of precognition. The book will cover: What precognition is and the different types, clearly explaining the cutting-edge science, including what is known and what is still a mystery The most common premonitions that people experience and why, including examples from around the world Experimental tools to help you cultivate precognition experiences to help get useful information for your lifeCase studies included throughout, with supporting scientific evidence offered alongside to provide validation and explanationPersonal experiences of the authors, detailing how premonition has shaped their lives and interviews with leading scientists and experts in the field Review: ''''Dr Julia Mossbridge and co-author Theresa Cheung show us that our everyday notions of time do not reflect the scientific reality of how time can work in our lives. They dare to examine the so-called anomaly of precognition in a clear-headed way, hopeful that as a society we can build teams of ''''Positive Precogs'''' who globally move us toward positive events and away from negative ones. This book is a major contribution in our understanding of reality and the dormant potential for the so-called supernormal that exists within all of us. Read it and discover the power of time within your mind.'''' -Deepak Chopra, M.D., author of The Healing Self ''''The Premonition Code addresses an unprecedented shift in scientific understanding, all over a refined assessment of the nature of consciousness. At its core lie peculiar and unexpected aspects of time itself, and of causal relationships and modes of knowing that defy conventional explanation. The book is not only a sophisticated and comprehensive presentation of the science behind this world-changing revolution: It also provides a fascinating and practical toolbox to aid conscious beings in personally exploring these mind-bending concepts and applying them positively in their own lives. Thanks to Theresa and Dr Mossbridge, a future based in our loftiest dreams has never been more accessible!'''' -Eben Alexander MD, neurosurgeon and author of Living in a Mindful Universe and Proof of Heaven ''''It seems that the 'other side' might be in 'another time.' In this book we have a mystic and a hard-core scientist using fascinating and accessible examples to demonstrate the remarkable possibilities of precognition and how to access it in your own life.'''' -New York Times bestselling author and spiritual medium, James van Praagh While reading the Premonition Code I felt how my mind set steadily transformed. This easily accessible book on the human capacity to foresee future events presents personal accounts as well as recent scientific insight. What is more, it is about a practical mind technique, probed and tested over the last decades, which might enable us to better sense the future. This book could become the I Ching of our times. -Marc Wittmann, Institute for Frontier Areas of Psychology and Mental Health, Germany ''''Dr. Julia Mossbridge and Theresa Cheung, in Premonition Code, have written an excellent and compelling book that will present the reader with the very latest research in nonlocal consciousness, as well as a way to use these findings to improve their own lives. I recommend it.'''' -Stephan A. Schwartz, Author, Scientist, and Futurist, The 8 Laws of Change, 2016 winner of the Nautilus book award for social change ''''I am excited about The Pr
