A knowing

January 7th, 2012

I have read widely to explore current thinking on the afterlife. Putting religious and spiritual texts to one side (these are written in the language of metaphor and so are easy to misinterpret), there are many good books on near death experiences. There is also a lot of material from psychologists who use hypnosis. This material creates a powerful body of evidence for the fact that consciousness continues to exist when we leave the body. Is it scientific? Probably not in the current framework of

What happens next….?

January 7th, 2012

I often see the energy field around people – sometimes this happens in every day situations, such as a business meeting or relaxing at home; sometimes it happens in more spiritual environments.

Each of these roles or identities brings with it certain expectations around behaviour, values, and

Dreams

January 2nd, 2012

Interesting one this – some of us remember our dreams, some of us never remember anything. Dreams can be funny, banal, terrifying, unnerving, sexy, exciting or just downright weird. In terms of remembering dreams, I think it is like a muscle – if you start to remember a little bit and write that down, then the muscle gets stronger and you start to remember more. When I am really paying attention to my dreams it is like watching a very long film or (on a
