10 things to know about the Wigi Board.

 

wigi board

 

  1. The board has a very old history.

It is said that the board originated in the late 1800’s. It has been associated with the occult practice of table turning. When persons seated around a table who were engaged in particular ritual would sit around a table. It is reported that the table normally moves when a presence entered. This was used so that people could get in contact with their dead love ones. The Wigi board is also said to be a medium through which you can contact the dead. When asking a question using the board the answer is mysteriously given. The planchette moves on its own and provides users to questions given asked one at a time.

 

  1. Negative Stigma

This board game is seen as more than that by many. It is viewed by some as a medium that allows evil to enter into your life. Some say it has been linked to the movie, The Exorcist. One of the first movies to show the board being used and an evil spirit harming the users. Many individuals do not want this board to be anyway near their homes. This board has even been taken of the shelves in some countries.

 

  1. The Wigi Board requires special usage

When using the board, it must be placed between all users. This is to allow them to easily access the planchette. Fingers must be gently placed on the planchette. You must asked for a willing spirit to join you. After you have done this, you are each allowed to ask a question. When all have received their answers you are required to say goodbye to stop the spirit from staying.

 

  1. The game is owned by the Parker Brothers

Presently all the Wigi boards that we see are made by the Parker Brothers. This company was started in the 1800’s by a group of brothers. It specializes in games. The Parker Brothers have added special font, glow in the dark feature and strange symbols on the board to add mystery.

 

  1. Bill Wilson was inspired by the wigi board

Mr. Bill Wilson, one of the pioneers of Alcoholics Anonymous has been reported to have gotten inspiration from the board. According to reports, Mr. Wilson had his special room at his home where he used the board. He once spoke to a monk called Boniface who give him the idea for the 12 step AA program.

 

  1. Linked to murder

Many convicted criminals have reportedly blamed the use of the Wigi board for their crime. One such case involves Brian Roach 2001, Mayor of Minco, Oklahoma. He murdered by his mother-in-law. She stabbed him while he was asleep. She then told the police her Wigi board said that Brian was wicked and had to die. There have been many similar reports. Cases where people have been convicted of crimes and blamed it on the board.

 

  1. Used in court

The board was used in 1994 by four British Jurors. They were working on the case of Stephen Young who was on a murder trial. The jurors decided to use the board to give their decision. They found the defendant guilty. However, Young was granted a retrial once this became public. He was found guilty once again.         

 

  1. Do not get addicted

It is said that the spirit contacted when using the board may make you dependent. A term called Progressive Entrapment. If you are a user of the board, you should be careful not to become its slave. It is said that a spirit may present to you something good that is to happen in the future. Once this happens, you become more trusting and seek more and more advice and information. Your time is consumed by the interaction with the spirit. You should not get addicted to anything.

 

  1. Rose to great popularity in the 1920’s

During the 1920’s the Ouija board wad the most popular selling game in the United States. It even sold more than Monopoly. In the year 1920, approximately three million boards were sold.

 

  1.  The rules are often ignored

This board game always comes with rules. These rules are usually ignored by those who are so eager to express the mysteries of the game. There rather odd rules are: never ask the board when you are going to die, do not play the game alone and never talk about God.

Visualization Training

 


Visualization is creating pictures in the mind. It is the conscious production of mental imagery. Psychology and religion have long recognized this process as an effective means for shaping skills and talents, alleviating pain and illness, and activating one’s spirituality.

Images – the building blocks of visualization – spring from deep within us. Possessing a dynamic drive with an enormous emotional power, they impact our bodies and minds in a positive or negative manner, depending on their vividness, repetition, and reception by the subconscious, whose task it is to externalize those images which impress it. Since mental imagery triggers much of human behavior, it is advantageous to make every effort to influence the deeper levels of our minds with those constructive images we wish the subconscious to actualize.

Visualization is most effective when practiced in a relaxed state of mind called passive concentration. Effort inhibits success, often resulting in anxiety and stress. This undesirable response is called “the principle of paradoxical intentions.” We can avoid this unproductive situation by relaxing our bodies and refraining from strenuous effort whenever we practice visualization.

Although our goal is to supply the mind with positive images, negative images will usurp the imagination from time to time. To cope with such situations, we can practice what Dr. Serge King, a visualization specialist, calls the dream change technique. Through this process we recall frightening or upsetting dreams and then consciously change them, transforming negative emotions or situations into positive or satisfying ones through the power of imagination. If, for instance, we dream of falling from a cliff, we later recall the dream and reconstruct it. Instead of falling, we picture our arms opening like wings and gliding us like eagles safely to the earth. If we dream of pursuing monsters, we can later recall the terrible creatures with their ugly, ferocious faces breaking into smiles as they extend their talons out in friendship.

We can also apply this technique to negative images that spontaneously appear during the day. For example, if we see ourselves as slouched, tense, strained or anxious, we change the image into a positive one by visualizing ourselves standing tall, relaxed and confident. When we change adverse dreams or negative everyday images into constructive images, we loosen the blocked energy in them and free ourselves from experiencing their detrimental effects.

Powerful negative images do not release their clutch on us easily; their roots reach deep into the subconscious. Carl Jung suggests a technique called active imagination to deal with such recalcitrant images. First, we visualize a meaningful image and hold it firmly and vividly in mind – a person, a scene, an object. Observing the image, we watch it develop a life and freedom of its own, its activity directed by the subconscious. The images evoked through active imagination energize mental imagery while the sequence of events or the specific narratives they unfold can be quite instructive about our little understood needs, abilities and frustrations.

Active imagination establishes a channel for conflicts confined in the dark subconscious to gain access to the light of consciousness through the medium of mental pictures. It releases inhibitions and frees the immobile energy trapped in them, allowing the individual access to a greater reserve of mental power. If the trauma associated with any particular image is excessive, caution is advised, since the emotions associated with past events brought to consciousness through powerful images can be severe. This precaution must be taken with any visualization of personal difficulties, but especially with involuntary images which repeatedly appear without the consent of the will.

Another useful therapeutic technique is creative visualization developed by Dr. Roberto Assagioli, an Italian psychiatrist. Dr. Assagioli pioneered the use of the imagination in fostering self-actualization through the visualization of such images as the Legend of the Grail, the Blossoming Rose, and Dante’s Pilgrimage through Hell, Purgatory, and Heaven. This process involves reflecting on the symbolism of the images, interjecting or identifying with them, and finally keeping them present in one’s thoughts during the day. Psychosynthesis, Assagioli’s scientific approach to helping us live healthier and more integrated lives, outlines a step-by-step procedure for practicing these and other useful imaging exercises.

Dr. Carl Happich, a former Darmstadt internist, developed a unique visualization technique based on Eastern literature and meditation which activates “symbolic consciousness,” a state of mind existing between the conscious and subconscious, a stimulation offering much therapeutic benefit to the individual.

Happich’s program begins by first relaxing the body and mind through breathing exercises. With this accomplished, various scenes are created, beginning with the meadow meditation. In this exercise, we visualize a tall meadow, noting the particular surroundings – the grass, the flowers, the trees. Following this scene, we picture ourselves climbing a mountain, passing through a forest, and eventually reaching a scenic spot from which we view a valley and a vast stretch of countryside. The third visualization is called the chapel meditation. In this scene, we pass through a grove and note a small, picturesque chapel. We enter the silent chapel to pray or simply to reflect. After leaving the chapel, we sit alone on a nearby wooden bench and listen to the soothing rippling sound of running water in an old fountain.

Happich’s visualization exercises activate the deep levels of the mind through the evocation of “archetypal” images. For instance, climbing the mountain symbolizes our striving to develop our human potential, the forest signifies the dark and fearful aspects of our nature, and the chapel represents the innermost self where we confront the spiritual issues of our lives.

The “dream change” technique, “active imagination,” and the visualization exercises of Assagioli and Happich help to prevent oppressing images from inhibiting the free expression of God’s power. These exercises allow us to deal with those images associated with feelings, attitudes, and experiences which not only hamper our ability to do good but also result in unhappiness for ourselves and others. Positive change results from practicing these exercises, enabling God’s healing power to rise within us like a phoenix from the ashes of our darker selves.

Definition, Meaning

Visualization, or creative visualization as it is sometimes referred to, is the use of mental imagery to obtain an objective. A vivid mental picture of the desired thing is held firmly fixed in the mind as if it had already happened.

The technique has been widely employed in many fields such as the arts, sports, business, alternative medicine, religious practices, psychotherapy, psychical research, the mystical and occult arts, and self-improvement.

Creative visualization also is known by other terms such as “positive thinking,” “positive imagery,” “dynamic imaging,” “creating imaging,” “imaging,” and so on.

It is ancient knowledge that the power of thought, imagination, and will does change circumstances. Creative visualization does help the individual to organize the resources necessary to achieve the goal or task that he is presented with. It also is believed to aid in establishing a harmony which facilitates fortuitous synchronicities, or opportunities, and “good luck.” With visualization the person is better able to use his advantages because he is more aware of them.

Creative visualization seems to be most effective for the individual when practice in a quiet, relaxed situation, similar to that of meditation and prayer. Some person feel that during the practice they call upon a higher power such as the Divine, the Higher Self, or a spirit guide (see Guardian spirit)or a guardian angel to help them realize their objective.

This visualization technique has been popularized in the West under different names by various writers. One of the earliest books was ‘The Power of Positive Thinking’ ‘1952’ by Norman Vincent Peale, a Methodist minister. The book encouraged a combination of prayer, affirmative thinking and a faith in God. It encouraged the use of affirmative words and phrases such as ‘I am beautiful and loved,’ and ‘I am successful.’ These phrases were to be written down and contemplated on to become part of the consciousness. They were to give reassurance and help eliminate any negative images the person might have.

Another work was ‘Psycho-Cybernetics ‘1960’ by the plastic surgeon Maxwall Maltz. The book discusses the tremendous influence which imagination has upon self-image. Through his work Maltz observed that patients with poor self-image benefited little, if any, from plastic surgery, while patients having a good self-image, or improved it, experienced good transformation following surgery.

In ‘Creative Visualization’ ‘1979’ author Shakti Gawain compares creative visualization to “magic” in the highest sense of the word explaining that positive energy attracts more energy.

Gawain’s terminology of “magic” in the highest sense of the word was similarly defined by Aleister Crowley, magick is “the art or science of causing change to occur in conformity with the Will.” In both descriptions magic occurs only as the result of mental activity. The thrust of such activity has been labeled power and/or energy. The result is that change or changes occur in conformity to the will of the person or persons exerting such mental power.

One might wonder why such mental activity is associated with magic. The questioning is legitimate when one thinks of the popular definition or usage of the term magic. Customarily when one hears the term he thinks of the young, handsome magician who pulls the rabbit out of the hat of saws the girl in her skimpy costume in half. This is referred to as stage magic which is mostly based upon sleight-of-the-hand manipulation and optical illusion.

However, the type of magic which Gawain and Crowley are describing is something entirely different. By many, especially neo-Pagans and neo-Witches, it is referred to as true or real magick and spelled with the final “k” –the old spelling of the word – to distinguish it from stage magic. It should be pointed out, however, that there are skeptics that think the spelling of magic with the “k” is just a trick by those believing in the former to make their magic seem more real. Objectively speaking there seems to be no convincing answer to this argument, either one believes in magick or one does not. Those believing in magick claim its function is to make something happen which the person desires or wills to happen. They believe the person is able to do this with the power or psychic energy that the person possesses. There is an admission, although, that at times the person’s power may not be sufficient enough to achieve the sought after object or perform the required task and, it is at these times that the gods give the supplemented power needed.

People believing in magick believe that magick become more powerful as the power or psychic energy within them is increased or built up. The power builds up within the individual like steam in a pressure cooker. The individual wants it to build till he can no longer hold it, but he holds it as long as he can. This is why a group of Witches, each building up power within themselves, within a cone of power think when released all of the power flowing from each person can be directed to obtain the sought after objective. The accompaniment of dancing, chanting, hand clapping, and/or cord magic is used to stimulate and build excitement within the individuals. The flow of energetic power increases. Some who have developed this psychic ability claim that one can see the power flowing upward as a shimmering silver or blur-silver light.

Within this build up of energetic power fits the technique of visualization. With visualization, the person establishes a vivid picture in his mind of what he wants to happen. The picture is not of something that will happen, but rather it is a picture of the thing or event which has happen. This last distinction is crucial in the process of visualization. The mental picture must be of an event or thing that has already occurred or materialized. The purpose of this is to eliminate all doubt in the person’s mind that the desired thing will come true because the person sees that it already has.

One of the most famous employments of the cone of power occurred on Lammas Day, August 1, 1940, in England. At a sabbat, as related by Gerald B.Gardner, all of the covens in southern England gathered in the New Forest for “Operation Cone of Power.” It mission was to send a telepathic message to Hitler to keep out of England. Some of the thought sent were “you cannot cross the sea” and “not able to come.” There is no certainty that this cone of power worked but those believing in it no doubt thought it did because the Nazis did not invade England.

In some incidences persons in a cone of power may use visualization for healing purposes. In their minds each person has formed a mental picture of a certain person suffering from an illness as already healed and well. At the zenith of power they all might shout the person’s name, saying he is well. All their power is directed toward that person. This process can be repeated.

If the person or Witch is alone, he or she can use the same technique. For example he may desire money or love. The person will imagine himself with the money he desires or needs, or he may imagine himself with the person he wants to love. The image of the money or person grows more and more vivid till it becomes real to the viewer. When the viewer feels he can no longer hold the power within him he might release it by shouting MONEY or LOVE. The person often repeats his shout as his power is released. A.G.H.

Time travel 

 


Is it possible to travel through time. In fact we already have. Repeatedly. Only that perhaps the trips do not seem impressive enough as some think and it is not as seen in movies or science fiction books. The question is purely physical.

We have already done so. Although it may seem a typical issue of science fiction films, and although there are those who get their hands on the head when reading these lines, the truth is that it is undeniable that we have already traveled to the future. But how can it be? Why had not anyone told you so far? Well, maybe no one is aware of it. Or simply because the trip made is so small that it does not mean too much. In any case, the truth is that time travel can be done. Although it is not so clear in which direction.

 

time travel

 Is possible?

 

Traveling in time into the future

The most seasoned traveler in this time is none other than Sergei Krikalov. Yes, the cosmonaut who spent 803 days at the Mir space station. And its longest journey (probably the longest journey of all humanity) counts 1/48 seconds into the future. But before we go any further, it’s best if we stop to explain some necessary concepts. This time travel is due to general relativity (a case of special relativity) that defined Einstein back in the early twentieth century. In this theory, Einstein explains the relativity of certain concepts that to date were absolute. Among them, space and time.

According to the formulation, the passage of time depends on the speed at which a body moves. Thus, the faster it is, the slower time will pass around it. But not in itself, where time will normally pass. This is exemplified very well with the well-known parable of the twins. It explains how two identical twins separate. One of them is heading for a space trip that will take you to the confines of the solar system for several years traveling at speeds close to those of light. The other one stays at home. When the twin cosmonaut returns, it is found that while for him it has only been a few years, for his brother have been decades. He may even have his entire immediate family dead.
The relativity of time has been proven in more than one occasion directly. This theoretical concept, which is quite difficult to understand, has actually been tested on more than one occasion, including a test made with ultra precise atomic clocks. As we see, what happens in the end is that the twin who traveled to space, also did to the future. It also happened to Krikaliov, who spent almost three years at 27,000 km per hour and traveled to the future a tiny fraction of time. But he did. Because traveling forward in time is just a matter of money and technique. And it is possible.

 

Travel into the past

 

If you can travel to the future, is it possible to travel back in time to the past? Well, depending on who you ask. In fact, as Kurt Gödel long ago demonstrated, physical laws do not prohibit travel to the past. It’s just that we have not discovered that there is such a possibility. To do so, as he demonstrated with a Gödel model, it would only take travel into the future long enough to meet our past. Something similar to what would happen if we began to travel the world. When we turned it around we would reach the same point and even go back to the same places we had already passed.
The possibility of traveling to the past made Einstein deeply uncomfortable. For this to happen with the time of our universe, it should be in rotation. In such a case, closed curves, infinite time lines, could be given as circles in time. Physicists have described and discovered piles of such time lines. But only in theory. So far no one has managed to travel back in time. Not at all. Gödel also failed to demonstrate that the universe is in rotation, a necessary premise. Now, if we ever succeeded, it would not mean that we were violating the physical laws we know, much less. Which bothered Einstein deeply.

Now, based on this aspect, traveling to the past “turning around” is neither practical nor convenient. In order to do so we should use a shortcut. And what would this be? Here physicists engage in intense debates between advocates and detractors of time travel. A plausible option would be a singularity. Like a wormhole. A singularity is an event whose physical properties vary until it “breaks” the physical laws we know. In the case of the wormhole, where two points of space become a distance of zero, not only space transport would be possible, but perhaps also the temporal.

Through the Tunnel

 



Martin Brofman, Ph.D.

I was at the Episcopal Hospital in Philadelphia. I had just been told that I had a “blockage” in my spinal cord, from the fourth to the seventh cervical vertebrae at the level of the neck, that had been responsible for the symptoms I had been experiencing. My right arm was paralyzed, my legs were spastic, and there were sensations like electric shocks running through my body when I moved my head

I was told that I had to have an operation immediately, and that if I lived through the operation, I might come out of it a quadriplegic. When I asked if I had time for a second opinion, I was told that if I coughed or sneezed at that time, I might die. Naturally, I agreed to have the operation in a few hours.

I realized that according to what the doctors had said, I might be dead in a few hours. I went through the stages that many people go through when they know they are about to die. First, there was the sense that this was a movie set, and that these things were not really happening to me. I found myself negotiating with what was happening, bargaining if I could, for something different to happen. Slowly, the realization that it was real, and happening to me, came closer and closer, until I had to emotionally accept that I might very soon be dead.

When I accepted the unacceptable, my body shook violently as an intensity of energy moved through me. I opened more and more to it, and after one or two very long minutes it was complete. I felt a calm inside that I had not known before. All my senses were sharper. My vision was clearer. Colors were brighter. Hearing was clearer. Sensations were more alive.

I realized that I had released a perceptual filter that had been standing between me and the experience of life, and ironically, it had been the fear of death. Now that I had released that fear, I was experiencing more of life, more of being alive, even if just for a short while longer.

I thought of the life I had lived, and the things I could have done but didn’t, and I found myself saying to myself, “I wish I had.” There were a lot of “I wish I hads.” I thought to myself that it was, in fact, a sad way to end a life, and that if I had to do it again, there would be a lot of “I’m glad I did.”

I had to decide what I wanted to do with the short time I had left. If I spent my remaining time worrying or feeling bad about what was, in fact, inevitable, I would have just wasted the rest of my life, thrown it away, and it was too valuable for that.

I decided to spend my remaining time feeling good, and just thinking of things that helped me to feel good – the color of the paint on the walls, the smell of flowers in the room, anything positive. I knew I could always find something.

Finally, the time came. I was taken to the operating room, and as I was being given the anesthetic, I thought that this might be the last experience I would ever have. I had no idea what might come afterwards. I had been agnostic, with no beliefs, believing in nothing that I had not experienced. Perhaps the next step after death was just oblivion.

I let go.

I began to experience a vertigo, a sense of spinning, and it didn’t feel good, so I stabilized myself in the center of it until I was still, and everything else was spinning around me. I was moving through the spinning scenes, which were memories from the life I had lived, memories which were calling for my attention. If I put my attention on them, though, I felt myself “pulled,” because I was moving through these spinning memories, like being pulled through a tunnel, or falling down a well, but discovering that half-way down the well. Reaching for the walls would not work. My only hope would be to aim for the water at the bottom.

I had to withdraw my attention from these scenes, then, these memories, and put my attention on the place to which I was being drawn, aiming for it. I was headed there anyway, but aiming for it gave me more of a sense of being in the driver’s seat, and that was a lot more comfortable for me. It was a bit like riding a roller coaster in the front car, and pretending that you’re driving the thing along the tracks. It gives a totally different ride, I can assure you, than being swept out of control.

The ride was long, but I had nothing else to do but go for it. Finally, the end f the tunnel was in sight. I cam out into a kind of space, a stillness, where there was a glow of energy addressing me. It was like a spark of life, energy glowing with intelligence, not in a human form, just pure consciousness. It seemed that some distance away, there was another spark just observing the scene.

I felt as though I were having an exit interview, something like, “Well, your trip is over now, so complete things in your consciousness about that, and we’ll move on.” I looked back and saw my life as I had lived it, completed my thoughts about things that had happened, understood a lot of things differently, and then expressed that I was ready.

The Being began to move away. I began to follow, and then I paused. The Being quickly asked me what the thought was that had just entered my consciousness. I had thought that it would be a shame for my daughters to have grown up without their father in their life. I had spent a large part of my life without my father in it, and I would have liked my daughters to not have to have experienced that. Anyway, I was ready to go.

The Being said that because my reason for wanting to return was somebody outside myself, I would be allowed to return. Before I had the chance to express that I didn’t really want to return, there was a rapid, confused movement, something happened, the other spark which had been “observing” was somehow a part of it, and then I was waking up in this body, in traumatic pain, with intense drama going on around me in the hospital.

I felt as if I had just jumped into a movie that had been underway, but that I had not been the one in the body before this moment. Because of the trauma and the drama, my attention was directed to things happening in the physical world, and the memory of what had happened before was somehow obliterated. I had other things happening which were demanding my attention, and besides, I did not have the belief systems that would allow me to accept what had just happened.

Over the next year, I began to explore ideas and philosophies I had no experience of before. I read books like Life After Life, and Life After Death, and other writings which described what people called, “Near Death Experiences,” and I began to remember what had happened. I saw the similarities to what others had experienced, and I knew then what had happened to me. I thought also of the similarities to what we consider the “normal” birth process, where babies are born into bright lights and loud sounds and being slapped, and perhaps, their attention is so much directed to outer things that they forget their inner experiences just before the process of being born.

From time to time, I meet others who have made the trip, and we compare notes. “What was it like for you?” One woman said that before, she was certain there would be a Being on the other side with a big book, looking at what she had and had not done, and making checks and crosses, good marks and bad marks. When she got to the other side, there really was a Being there with a big book, just as she thought there would be. The only bad marks she got, though, were for the things that she hadn’t done. Her only sin was self-denial.

My diagnosis on leaving the hospital was “Spinal Cord Tumor.” There was no treatment possible. I was given one or two months to live, and I decided to do that living my new philosophy of “I’m glad I did.” I decided to work on myself, working in my consciousness to release the tumor. Later, the doctors decided that they must have made a mistaken diagnosis.

But that’s another story.

The Skinny on Astral Cords

 


(BIO: Dana Cribari lives in Durango, Colorado with her two cats Winston and Celia. She is an author, speaker and intuitive channeling reader (a.k.a. psychic reader). Her practice is based upon providing practical psychic tools for others. She can be reached at www.thepurplephoenix.com or 970-375-1708.)

Notes and References: There is little written I could find about Astral Cords. This article is based upon what I learned through an energy healer in Fort Collins, Colorado, Carol Kellgren, as well as my personal experience, observations and psychic readings. There are smatterings of references to Astral Cords posted on spiritual and psychic forums. I also found this article by Pam Watson at: http://www.thesoulelement.com/astral_cords.htm

Has a co-worker ever seemed to suck the energy out of you? Has a personal relationship, dating or otherwise, perpetuated itself in your life, even when you knew it was over? Have you ever felt an emotional/energetic piece of yourself distinctly and abruptly leave and go to someone you love?
These all describe potential Astral Cord occurrences.

Astral What?
Astral Cords.

Each of us possess an energetic field, otherwise known as an aura, interfaced with and surrounding our physical body. Within the aura and body, we also have seven main chakras
(energy centers). This is our energetic home during our lives in our physical bodies. Though we naturally energetically interface, consciously or unconsciously, with one another’s auras, we also have a way to literally energetically ‘hook up’ with each other. We connect through Astral Cords or energy cords. (I’ve also heard them referred to as Akkacords or Accacords.)

To me, Astral Cords look like rubbery, flexible, hollow light lines, connecting into my body. They expand to stretch over miles or contract to only a few feet. Sometimes they are thick and sometimes thread-like thin. Sometimes they have a couple of curved shaped hooks, attaching into me. Sometimes I am very aware of them and sometimes I do not even know they are there.
Astral Cord connections occur anytime two people, whether consciously or unconsciously, give permission to one another to energetically connect. Sometimes the connections are strong and remain in place for years, forming a bond much like a giant, deep tree root connecting into the ground. Other times, the connection happens lightly, in passing and easily disconnects like a thread flying loose. Other times the cord and connection develops strongly and then wanes, following the pattern of the relationship. Though the relationship may be over, the cord might remain connected, but listless and lifeless, like a dead grass frond in winter.

Astral Cords can both constructively and destructively affect the spiritual, energetic and psychic aspects of our lives. The Astral Cord bond can help us positively share information, emotion and energy more freely at the energetic/psychic level between one another-like between parent and child, husband and wife, or close friendships. Destructive Astral Cord bonds perpetuate unhealthy connections between people, leeching energy or seeping toxic energy between two people-like toxic co-worker situations, abusive relationships or co-dependency.
How we hook up with one another can make large differences in how we physically feel as well. Picture these following scenarios and imagine the energetic impact on each individual:

-Two lovers who have an Astral Cord connection running from heart chakra to heart chakra with love energy flowing back and forth.
-A husband and a wife. The husband has diabetes. One of the Astral Cords connecting this pair runs between the husband’s pancreas and the wife’s. The wife is energetically supporting the pancreas energy for both of them.
-Two co-workers. Both are working on an in-depth project with one another. An Astral Cord running between both of their Third Eye (forehead) Chakras.

Most of us unknowingly are energetic porcupines: we have Astral Cords protruding from us through a lifetime of un-cleared connections. Many times, we have multiple Astral Cord connections with the people we’ve developed close relationships with. The types of Astral Cord connections you choose to keep or clear directly impact the health of your energetic field, your aura. . . and directly affect your overall physical health.
If you want to ‘uncord,’ here are some simple steps to follow (with highest intent):

1. Create a meditative, calm state and call on your Highest Spirit Guides/Angels/Entities for help.
2. Once you are there, ask to see your Astral Cords, or more specifically, ask to see the Astral Cords connected to you in relation to a specific person. Wait and watch for those cords to light up for you. (The more you practice this, the more adept you will become in seeing and/or feeling them.)
3. If you want to remove a cord, with conscious intent, unhook the cord with your right hand (releasing hand) and send it out of your aura or energy field. Ask your Highest Spirit Guides/Angels to help you remove it and send it/hook it back to the person it is connected to (you do not want the cause energy bleeding from the unhook cord in the other individual). Tell them you do not want the connection back, creating an energy shield from further connections.
4. DO NOT rip, cut or tear out Astral Cords. This creates holes in your aura which will leak energy. It also causes energy leaks in the cords still connected to the other individual.
5. Ask you Highest Spirit Guides/Angels to help you fill any and all energy/aura holes with liquid light gold to seal in your energy.
6. Give thanks.

Like any energy work, the greater intent you work with, the stronger the results. You may need to do this systematically as we unknowingly, easily, unconsciously give these connections away. . . especially if we have been in the habit with another person. The more you consciously select your connections, the stronger your aura will become and the healthier, more clear you will be able to live.

Thanatology

 


Thanatology is the scientific study of death that almost always involves deathbed visions. Such visions are regarded as showing that death is not an extinction of life but the transition of life. Many see this transition as a rite of passage that should be undergone consciously and with dignity. There are various arts to “right dying” as described in the ancient Western mystery traditions and in the Tibetan Book of the Dead (see Egyptian Book of the Dead). However, in the technologically advanced societies of the West such dignified rites of passage are too often forgotten and abandoned in effort to prolong life as long as possible with advanced techniques and machines.

There are two major contributors to the Western forgetfulness and abandonment of the dignified rite of passage. One is the Hippocratic oath taken by doctors to help sustain life as long as possible. Within this oath there seem to be no exceptions. At times the quality of life that the ill person is living seems to have no consideration. Coinciding with the Hippocratic oath, in many instances, seem to be the economics of the medical profession. People are being artificially kept alive today on machines who fifty to a hundred years ago would have died naturally. This is not to say that these machines are not necessary in some cases, but to say a terminally ill individual should be kept alive by a machine seems at times to beg for some sounder judgment. It must be noted that the physician and institution that is keeping the individual alive are also making a living and profit in doing so. This is not an argument that authorities or medical practitioners should have the right to decide life and death, no, far from it, but that the individual when able should have the freedom to share in a dignified rite of passage.

The second contributor is religious, particularly the Christian religion. Hardly anyone can deny this. The Judeo-Christian religion has inspired the fear of death. Its origin lies in the story or fable of Adam and Eve; because of Adam’s sin humankind inherited death, and with it came the fear of hell. Also, coupled with the teaching is the concept that since God made life, only he can take it away. The advocates of the death penalty seem to forget that, don’t they? The entire complex involvement between Christian teachings and death is too lengthy to be fully discussed here. It will be suffice to say that many think such teachings interfere with the individual’s dignified rite of passage. This is not an argument for suicide or euthanasia, but this is an argument that the belief that one has to suffer needless pain for God might hinder one’s rite to passage.

Deathbed visions are paranormal experiences of the dying. Most commonly the visions are apparitions of the dead or mythical or religious figures, and visions of an afterworld. The significance of these deathbed visions is that they provide evidence, although not scientific, to support the concept of the survival of consciousness after death. These visions share certain characteristics with mystical experiences, such as being regarded as sacred, profoundly peaceful, and giving a sense of elation.

Descriptions of deathbed visions date back to ancient times. Psychical and other researchers have studies many cases. Early psychical researchers James H. Hyslop and E. Buzzano collected data at the beginning of the 20th century. William Barrett, English physics professor and psychical researcher, conducted the first systematic study in 1924. His wife, an obstetrical surgeon, sparked him interest in such visions when she described to him a woman whose deathbed visions had transformed her into a state of peace and radiance just before she died.

Karlis Otis, under the auspices of the first Parapsychology Foundation and then the American Society for Psychical Research, conducted a significant research study. During 1959 and 1973, he collected data on tens of thousands of deathbed and near-death experiences (NBEs) in the United States and, in a joint effort with Erlendur Haraldsson, in India. Their findings confirmed Barrett’s research, the experiences of Elisebeth Kubler-Ross and others who work with the terminally ill and dying, and research of near-death experiences.

It is recorded that deathbed visions have common characteristics regardless of racial, cultural, religious, educational, age, and socioeconomic lines, such as radiant lights, scenes of great beauty, beings of light, and feelings of great peace. Most of these visions are apparitions of light beings that may be dead persons known to the dying, or great religious or mythical figures, such as the Virgin Mary, Jesus, and so on. These figures are called “take-away apparitions” because their apparent purpose is to summon or escort the dying to the afterworld. Generally their appearance elicits a response of joy, peace, happiness, and cessation of pain, but a small number of individuals have reacted with fear and denial.

People that are with the dying sometimes, through rarely, report perceiving the take-away apparition, which is sensed as an unusual light or energy in the room. At times an energy cloud may appear over the dying, and in fewer instances, may assume the shape and appearance of the dying, connected to the body by a silvery cord. At death when this cord is severed, the astral shape dissipates.

In one-third of the visions reported, the dying beheld (or saw when transported out of their body) a preview of the afterworld. Other visions include great architectural structures, and symbolic transitional figures such as gates, bridges, rivers, and boats. The afterworld scenes are populated with angels or spirits of the dead. In a small number of instances celestial music may permeate the vision. The typical colors seen are vivid. Rarely does the vision conform to the religious expectations of the dying.

The length of the visions may vary. About half of the deathbed visions studied by Osis and Haraldsson lasted less than five minutes. Another 17 percent lasted between six and fifteen minutes. Approximately 76 percent of the individuals died within ten minutes of their vision, and almost all died within one or several hours afterwards.

Theories that discount deathbed visions cite the possibilities that they are hallucinations induced by drugs, fever, disease, oxygen deprivation, wish fulfillment, and depersonalization. However, it has been noted that hallucinations arising from these factors generally concern the present and not the afterworld. Also, Osis and Haraldsson discovered that deathbed visions mostly occur when patients are fully conscious.

Physician Elisabeth Kubler-Ross has conducted considerable study in the field of thanatology, and is author of Death and Dying. Also she founded Shanti Nilaya, a center for healing and growth in Escondido, California. A.G.H.

Telepathy

 


Definition

Telepathy is defined as the psychic phenomena by which communication occurs between minds, or mental mind-to-mind communication (telepathically). Such mental telepathy communication includes thoughts, ideas, feelings, sensations and mental images. Telepathic descriptions are universally found in writings and oral lore. In tribal societies such as the Aborigines of Australia telepathy is accepted as a human faculty, while in more advanced societies it is thought a special ability and power belonging to mystics and psychics.

Is it real? Is there any proof? Although not scientifically proven, telepathy is being increasingly studied in psychical research. It is also known as mind reading by someone able to read minds.

History

“Telepathy” is derived from the Greek terms tele (“distant” or “distance”) and pathe (“occurrence” or “feeling”). So Telepathy actually means getting feelings through a distance. The term was coined in 1882 by the French psychical researcher Fredric W. H. Myers, a founder of the Society for Psychical Research (SPR). Myers thought his term described the phenomenon better than previous used terms such as the French “communication de pensees,” “thought-transference,” and “thought-reading.”

Mental Telepathy

To elaborate, Telepathy is the communication between two minds, separated over a distance, without the use of the five known senses.  At some point or the other, we all have experienced Telepathy. Maybe you were thinking of someone you haven’t talked to in months and you suddenly get a call from him. Or when two people are together, they might say the same thing at the same time. These are spontaneous mind-to-mind communication. Such Telepathy that tends to occur frequently between closely related individuals.
Research interest in telepathy had its beginning in Mesmerism. The magnetists discovered that telepathy was among the so-called “higher-phenomena” observed in magnetized subjects, who read the thoughts of the magnetists and carried out the unspoken instructions.

Soon other psychologists and psychiatrists were observing the same phenomena in their patients. Sigmund Freud noticed it so often that he son had to address it. He termed it a regressive, primitive faculty that was lost in the course of evolution, but which still had the ability to manifest itself under certain conditions. Psychiatrist Carl G. Jung thought it more important. He considered it a function of synchronicity (1). Psychologist and philosopher William James was very enthusiastic toward telepathy and encouraged more research be put into it.

When the American Society for Psychical Research (ASPR) was founded in 1885, after the SPR in 1884, telepathy became the first psychic phenomenon to be studied scientifically. The first testing was simple. A sender in one room would try to transmit a two-digit number, a taste, or a visual image to a receiver in another room. The French physiologist Charles Richet introduced mathematical chance to the tests, and also discovered that telepathy occurred independent of hypnotism.

Interest in telepathy increased following World War I as thousands of bereaved turned toward Spiritualism attempting to communicate with their dead loved ones. The telepathic parlor game called “willing” became popular. Mass telepathic experiments were undertaken in the United States and Britain.

Experimental findings

Most often telepathy occurs spontaneously in incidents of crisis where a relative or friend has been injured or killed in an accident. An individual is aware of the danger to the other person from a distance. Such information seems to come in different forms as in thought fragments, like something is wrong; in dreams, visions, hallucinations, mental images, in clairaudience, or in words that pop into the mind. Often such information causes the person, the receiver, to change is course of action, such as changing his travel plans or daily schedule, or to just call or contact the other person. Some incidents involve apparent telepathy between humans and animals.

Telepathy seems to be related to the individual’s emotional state. This is true of both the sender and receiver. Most women were receivers, as case findings showed, and one possible explanation is that women are more in touch with their emotions and rely on intuition more than men. Geriatric telepathy is fairly common, this may be due, it is speculated, to the impairment of the senses with age.

Telepathy can be induced in the dream state. It appears to be related to some biological factors: blood volume changes during telepathic sending, and electroencephalogram monitoring show that the brain waves of the recipient change to match those of the sender.

Dissociative drugs adversely affect telepathy, but caffeine has a positive effect on it.

During his 1930 ESP experiments J. B. Rhine also made some discoveries concerning telepathy: It was often difficult to determine whether information was communicated through telepathy, clairvoyance, or precognitive clairvoyance. He concluded that telepathy and clairvoyance were the same psychic function manifested in different ways. Also, telepathy is not affected by distance or obstacles between the sender and receiver.

 

Is telepathy real?

A telepathic experiment conducted during the Apollo 14 mission in 1971 proved distance is not a barrier. The experiment was not authorized by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), nor was it announced until the mission was completed. Astronaut Edgar D. Mitchell conducted the experiment with four recipients on Earth, 150,000 miles below. Mitchell concentrated on sequences of twenty-five random numbers. He completed 200 sequences. Guessing 40 correctly was the mean chance. Two of the recipients guessed 51 correctly. This far exceeded Mitchell’s expectations, but still was only moderately significant.

 

Theories

Although over the centuries various theories have been advanced to describe the functioning of telepathy, none seem to be adequate. Telepathy, like other psychic phenomena, transcends time and space. The ancient Greek philosopher Democritus put forth the wave and corpuscle theories to explain telepathy. In the 19th century, the British chemist and physicist William Crookes, thought telepathy rode on radio- like brain waves. Later in the 20th century the Soviet scientist L. L. Vasilies proposed the electromagnetic theory. The American psychologist Lawrence LeShan proposed that each person has his or her personal reality, and the psychics and mystics share separate ones from other people which allow them to access information not available to others.

In conclusion telepathy, like the other forms of psychic phenomena is elusive and difficult to test systematically. Enough evidence is available to reasonably substantiate the phenomenon does exist. But, quantifying it seems to be another matter. The phenomenon is closely connect to the emotional states on both the sender and receiver which creates difficulty in replicating experimental results. Attitudinal factors also influence the phenomenon. The best that researchers can hope for is to have supportive and receptive subjects in experiments that produce similar results.

 

 

How to Techniques

In this section we will go through the steps required to practice voluntary mental Telepathy with some even if he is far away, we will see how to send mental messages. Is it real? Just try the how to step by step and the techniques explained here.

 

1. Sender And Receiver :


We will need two people. One will be the Sender, who will attempt to transmit thoughts and messages; the other will be the Receiver, who will attempt to receive the thoughts transmitted by the Sender. Prior to the experiment, decide clearly if you are going to be the Sender or the Receiver. If you don’t, you both might end up being Receivers or Senders! Avoid that confusion.

For this article, we will assume that you are the Sender.

 

2. Belief :


First of all, it is very important that the Sender and the Receiver both believe that Telepathy is possible. Even if the belief is not 100%, an open-minded attitude is a must. In fact, it is best if the participants not only believe in Telepathy, but also actually deeply desire it to occur. If you are a skeptic, and if the doors of your mind are closed, you will get very poor results.

 

3. Physical Relaxation :


Telepathy is most effective when the Sender and the Receiver are both totally relaxed physically. Also, being in positive health makes you concentrate better. Try not to practice when you are unwell.

Relax yourself using any relaxation method you find best. You can either breathe deeply a couple of times, or use the progressive relaxation method.

 

4. Mental Relaxation :


Clear your mind of unwanted thoughts. Make your mind tranquil. Let thoughts come and go, but don’t get attached to them. Focus on your purpose. Since you are the Sender, your focus will be to send your thoughts across. Your partner, the Receiver should focus his mind to be receptive to your thoughts.

Make sure that both of you do not have any distractions around. A disturbed environment will be detrimental to your progress. A calm and quiet environment will give maximum results.

 

5. Visualization :


Before beginning the transmission, it is important that the previous steps are well followed. They will set up the foundation for your success.

With your eyes shut, visualize a very clear picture of the Receiver. Imagine that he is a few feet away from you. Visualize him in full color. Feel that he is actually there. If you want, you can even look at a colored picture of him before the experiment. This will help you visualize him properly.

Now imagine a silver tube connecting your mind and his mind. This tube is the channel through which your thoughts would be communicated to him. Visualize this tube to be full of energy. Know in your heart that this tube is very effective and will do the job well.

Please note that visualizing the tube is not a must. It is just a very effective aid to help you focus and gives your thoughts a well-defined direction. Instead of this tube, you can even visualize that you are talking to your friend over the telephone.

 

6. Transmission :


Now imagine that your thoughts are being transmitted through the tube – from your mind to his mind. If you are thinking of transmitting a mental picture of an apple, visualize a bright, red, juicy apple traveling across our tube. Make the picture as vivid as possible. Charge the apple with emotion. Believe that Telepathy is real. Desire that your thoughts reach your friend. Imagine the feeling you will have when you succeed. This is very crucial. Emotions are a very powerful trigger and give excellent results. Very often, Telepathy experiments fail because the thoughts lack emotional charge.

Make sure you do not strain yourself to send the thought. You have to be relaxed and composed.

 

7. When to stop :


While you are sending your thoughts, there will be a moment when you will have a strong feeling that the thought has been transmitted. This is an unmistakable feeling that cannot be faked. Whenever you get such a feeling, the job is done. This might take a few seconds to several minutes. If even after 15 minutes, you do not get this feeling, you can abandon the experiment and try at a later date. Trying further will not help much because your mind would be exhausted.

 

8. The Receiver :


Throughout the experiment, the Receiver should keep his mind blank and should try to receive the thoughts being sent by you. He should avoid trying too hard. Forcing himself to sense what you are thinking will sabotage your attempts. His mind will be most receptive when he is relaxed and at ease.

He will get several impressions coming to his mind. He should keep a pen and paper next to him, and note down whatever thoughts come to his mind. He will probably feel that he is making things up. But that’s OK. This is how Telepathy works.

 

9. Compare results :


Once you are through with your experiments, compare your results. Check all the impressions that the Receiver has written down. Does it contain the thought that you tried to transmit? The more you practice, the more accurate results you will get.

 

10. Repeat the experiment :


You should then repeat the experiment – either immediately or at a later date. If you have got some success, your confidence would be quite high and you would want to repeat it immediately. But if there was no success, do not get discouraged and try the next day. Regular practice sessions are a must, because only consistency will make you better.

 

You should also alternate between being the Receiver and the Sender. This will tell you what you are better at – Receiving or Sending.

 

General Tips 


Keep it short :


Keep your experiments short, maybe 15 minutes or less. This will prevent boredom and fatigue. Your Telepathic ability is at its peak when you feel most energized.

 

Have Patience :


One of the most important conditions of experimental telepathic work is patience. Don’t be discouraged if you do not find much success initially. Any psychic experiment, including Telepathy, takes some practice before you see results. Once you practice for a few days, you will start getting more successes.

 

Stay aware from skeptics :


Skeptics have got one purpose in life: To sidetrack believers. Stay away from such people because they will put doubt in your mind and will dampen your spirits. Your results prove to you that Telepathy works. Skeptics will not help you much. Sharing your results with them will only discourage and hinder your accomplishments.

Only try to share your experiences with like-minded people, people who are positive and encouraging.

 

 

Conclusion

Exploring your own Telepathic abilities is an incredible journey. Although it will be fun and exciting, developing a strong foundation will take time and patience. Never expect too much success in the beginning.

But the good news is that Telepathy can be learned and cultivated very easily. With regular practice you will become a Telepathy adept! You will always be correct in sending and receiving messages, with astounding clarity and accuracy.

(1) Synchronicity: A term coined by Jung to designate the meaningful coincidence or equivalence (a) of a psychic and a physical state or event which have no causal relationship to one another. Such synchronistic phenomena occur, for instance, when an inwardly perceived event (dream, vision, premonition, etc.) is seen to have a correspondence in external reality: the inner image of premonition has “come true”; (b) of similar or identical thoughts, etc. occurring at the same time in different places. Neither one nor the other coincidence can be explained by causality, but seems to be connected primarily with activated archetypal processes in the unconscious.
