The Translucent Revolution: How People just like you are waking up and changing

By Arjuna Ardagh

"Trailing clouds of glory do we come, from God who is our home," wrote William Wordsworth. As preverbal babies, we experience ourselves as limitlessness. At one with what we see and feel, we have no need to define ourselves. We are both nothing and everything.

We can spend an entire lifetime trying to find a satisfactory ending to the statement "I am..."


Educating Intuition

By Robin M. Hogarth

Book Summary by Susie Pedigo

Doctors, waiters, housewives, teachers, plumbers and stockbrokers all use intuitive judgment. Everyone does.

How do psychics find missing people, or solve murders?

By Lorrie Kazan

Psychometry is often used to find lost objects and people and it's something you can learn. Psychometry is the ability to see with touch. A psychometrist holds an object in hand, or sometimes pressed to the forehead, and simply relates the impressions she or he receives. Solving a murder, the late Bevy Jaegers held a rock from the crime scene and was able to describe the gruesome events. The idea is that objects take on the resonance of what has been pervasive in their environment.

The Inner Psychic: A Journey from Reluctance to Self-Reliance

By Darrin Owens

As a psychic who feels called to help others connect with their own inner psychic, my role is to encourage clients to deal with their challenges, not escape them. Accepting your true psychic nature means taking your power back and redirecting your life. That is why we are all reluctant psychics to some degree. We are afraid of the power and total responsibility that comes with owning our psychic potential.


Asking for Psychic Readings

A Memo from A.R.E. Staff to those who inquire about a recommendation concerning a reputable psychic

From the perspective of the Edgar Cayce readings, each of us is our own best psychic. Whether the information comes from a hunch, an intuition, our dreams, or synchronicity, each of us possesses a wealth of internal guidance that can be drawn upon whenever we need it. In fact, the Cayce material suggests that our true natural state is psychic and that as we progress spiritually in our lives we will have more personal experiences with this psychic dimension of our beings. Still, there are times in life when we may feel the need to receive external guidance. Just as it is appropriate for individuals to seek out help from a doctor, a counselor, a minister, or a trusted friend, there may be occasions when we feel the need for intuitive information from a professional.


How Memories and Dreams can Help us to Transform our Lives

By Andrea Flew

I offered a friend who was going through a period of transition, an opportunity to practice developing intuition for guidance by engaging with memories and dreams to reflect and analyze guidance contained in their stories. I found the whole experience to be affirming of my potential to contribute to opportunities for the transformational process to progress. I felt I grew in confidence within myself to apply my skills in service with another. I became aware of skills and insights within that I am capable of practically applying to daily life and living that can serve my own and others' conscious awareness, growth in spirit and confidence to serve others.


Developing the Psychic Profession Commentary

By Henry Reed on

The Intuitive Career: How to Succeed as a Consultant, Reader, or Healer, by Cay Randall May What can society expect from a professional intuitive? I think it is crucially important that psychics get it together to provide us with an answer. It would create the actual status of "profession" in the mind of society. What do psychics profess? We don't know yet, but we're waiting.


Exploring Beyond the Ego Mind

An essay on Transpersonal Knowing

By Jan Kruyff

Thinking is a great human pastime. We all think. Whether it is about our next meal, how to manage our present problem, or where to vacation, we always seem to be thinking. Maybe we even pass all of our time thinking. But how often do we think about thinking, a thing that comes so naturally to us. How often do we consider where particular thoughts come from? Where are the limits of our individual minds? Do we ever consider that some of the contents of our minds originate outside of us?

By Jenna Ludwig

A man explained to psychic Carol Ann Liaros (who is Senior Trainer at the Edgar Cayce Institute for Intuitive Studies) that although he had been totally blind for over 41 years since the age of four, he could see the auras of those around him. This led Carol Ann to consider the prospect of teaching the blind to "see" through the use of their psychic abilities. The result was "Project Blind Awareness."


On Being Non-Attached to Outcomes

By Brandon Bays

Often, we become attached to something or someone because deep down we fear we would't be complete without them. We fear letting go into the presence of the unknown, and feel that we would be left bereft, lost, alone without that outer possession, person, lifestyle. We fear non-existence.


Taking The Journey to Wild Divine

By Jed J Bendix

One advantage "The Journey" has over other biofeedback devices is in teaching the effect emotional states have upon our body's rhythms. Some sessions ask you to raise your energy level while others ask you to bring it down.

A few have learned how to trigger this intuitive skill and use it to cope with modern life.


Your Immortal Reality

By Gary Renard

Book Review by Sidney Goodwin

Your Immortal Reality much like The Disappearance of the Universe attempts to explain A Course in Miracles from the "good old common man" approach. Gary says that he is just a common guy, not all that bright, who just happen to have his future self, who wrote the Gospel of Thomas in a previous life, and a partner appear as physical forms in his living room and give him sage advice on spiritual principles to living in everyday life. Their banter adds color and some humor to the exchange that presses the message of A Course in Miracles that forgiveness is the key to awaken us from the dream of this world.

The Emotional Heart: The heart as an organ of perception and communication

By Stephen Harrod Buhner

A chapter excerpted from his book The Secret Teachings of Plants: The Intelligence of the Heart in the Direct Perception of Nature.

The tendency for heart cells to entrain with one another, merely because of the proximity of their electromagnetic fields, extends to any electromagnetic field that comes into contact with them. Just as the electromagnetic fields of two heart cells cause them to begin beating or oscillating in unison, when the electromagnetic fields of two hearts come together, they also begin to oscillate or entrain to each other. But this phenomenon extends even further.


Story of a Dream Quest

Debbie Bailey

At the beginning of the dream quest program, I was concerned about the way in which I make decisions. I felt that most of my decisions were based on past patterns instead of free will. This concerned me so I focused on decision making as I began recording my first week’s dreams.

By Susan K. Garrett

The most striking thing I notice about myself since attempting this writing exercise is the realization of what an extraordinary life I’ve had to this point and how guided I have been.

The Power of Awareness

An excerpt from

The Mandala of Being: Discovering the Power of Awareness

By Richard Moss, M.D.

Any story you tell yourself about who you are, any belief you have, any feeling you are aware of, is only an object of your larger consciousness. You, in your essence, are always something that experiences all these and remains more complete than any of them. When you realize that you are inherently larger than any feeling that enters your awareness, this very awareness will change the feeling, and it will release its grip on you.


The New Science of Consciousness

By Laurie Nadel, Ph.D.

An Excerpt from her book

Sixth Sense: Unlocking Your Ultimate Mind Power.

The term "new science" was first introduced in 1964 by the late Nobel neuroscientist Dr. Roger Sperry (1913-1994).

The Art of Remembering and Interpreting Dreams

By Judith Orloff, M.D.

Whatever I am doing, I always hear my dreams echoing in a distant underground chamber beneath my thoughts and feelings, attuned to the rhythms of my body and the very substance of the earth. They are my compass and my truth; they guide me and link me to the Divine. They call out to me in an intimate whisper, always knowing how to find me. They speak my real name.


Leaving Old Ways at Ease: A Story of a Dream Quest

By Drude Clark

The Dream Quest guidebook says, "whatever question or problem you choose to work on it will reflect something about you and how you are responding to your life situation... Dreams do their best, it is assumed here, when you are doing your best, in your conscious life, to work on your problem yourself." I will have to handle my own baggage.


Shoe Dreams on My Dream Quest Path: A Report on a Dream Quest

By L.S. King

One might think the focus of my dream quest was all about my dilemma of which kind of hiking boot I should buy for a recent backpacking trip. Should I go with a cloth-based shoe that dries fast or a Gore-Tex lined boot that keeps the feet dry? But this was never really a dilemma. I knew I wanted the latter, even if the shoe salesman did not want to sell me a pair. The focus of my dream quest was a little deeper than the qualms of my shoe issues.

By Stephen Harrod Buhner. Book Summary by Naomi Mullen

This book not only gives guidance on receiving plant communication it also goes into intuitive information that can be derived from humans, animals, objects, and places.

Creating a Transpersonal Career, by Henry Reed, Atlantic University

The story of Edgar Cayce tells us that there is guidance within us. It is fitting, then, that at Atlantic University, students not only learn to read the important literature, but they learn to meditate. In class they not only discuss their reading material, but they also pray for one another and learn to recognize one another within themselves. Their culminating work is just as often a project serving others as it is compiling ideas from books.

Appreciationg Yourself, by Robert Mack

An Excerpt from Happiness from the Inside Out

The root of much unhappiness is comparison. Comparison gets in the way of healthy self-appreciation — and thus happiness — more than anything else. Because of comparison, hardly anybody is ever happy with what they get and nothing’s ever good enough for practically everybody. That’s because we measure our success in anything by comparing it to what others have or to what we have had before

The Science of Happiness, by Ryuho Okawa. An Excerpt: The Principle of Happiness

The first principle of happiness is love. This love is not the kind of love that you expect to receive from others. The love that I teach at Happy Science is love that gives.3 The true nature of love that gives is based on awakening to the fact that all human beings are children of God and originate in him, and that you are essentially one with others.


 

The Art of Intuition: Cultivating Your Inner Wisdom. By Sophy Burnham

Intuition is the shudder of dislike that you feel on seeing one man standing at the doorway -- or conversely, the wave of delight at seeing another. It can be a joy so profound it brings you to your feet to greet a stranger you feel you already know. Occasionally it comes with such force that you hear an external Voice -- as did one woman I know who heard the Voice in her ear when introduced to her future husband: "Remember that name," it said. "It will be yours!"

The Practicing Mind: Developing Focus and Discipline in Your Life. By Thomas Sterner

As when we were throwing tennis balls into a trash can, we should observe what happens, process the information without emotion, and then move on. This is how we should deal with ourselves as we work at learning something new, or when we're changing something about ourselves that we don't like. This includes working on something more abstract, too, such as becoming more aware or conscious of what we are thinking, becoming more of an observer of ourselves. This disconnection from our thoughts and actions is a way of thinking that we have learned during our lives, and one that takes away all our real power. We must unlearn this approach to life.

Living in the Light: 25th Anniversary Edition. By Shakti Gawain
Learning to trust your intuition is an art form, and like all other art forms, it takes practice to perfect. You don't learn to do it overnight. You have to be willing to make "mistakes," to try something and fail, then try something different the next time -- and sometimes, perhaps, even embarrass yourself or feel foolish. Your intuition is always correct, but it takes time to learn to hear it correctly.

Soul Writing: Conversing with your Higher Self, by Joanne DiMaggio and Illuminara: Intuitive Journal with Cards, by Elaine Clayton. Reviewed by Henry Reed

From whence do we gain our inspiration? From the clouds? Sometimes. The notion that there exists a greater self is almost universal. There is an inner intuition regarding a consciousness or awareness that has a reach beyond our eyes, a wisdom beyond our understanding. If we could only get out of our own way! Our habit thoughts block the passage of the inspirational flow. How can we reach the mountain top of our awareness? A significant number of folks use writing to draw out the inspiration and record it simultaneously. Some form of spontaneous writing, material emanating directly from the unconscious mind of the writer and being recorded as it appears, has provided mankind with some of its most influential sources of inspiration. I'm thinking of such classics as The Koran, The Prophet, The Urantia Book, Johnathan Livingston Seagull, A Course in Miracles, and most recently, Conversations with God.

Hidden Treasure

By Gangaji

What is your story? You discover your story by noticing what you are telling yourself over and over. Notice what you tell yourself about your past, your present, and your future.

Your narrative is what you tell yourself through thoughts and images with accompanying emotions. What is your narrative? You can check right now. It is bound to be familiar.

The Art of Uncertainty: How to Live in the Mystery of Life and Love It
By Dennis Merrit Jones

In our ongoing quest for self-improvement, we read books on a plethora of topics we are certain we must master, from how to strengthen our relationships and get our bodies in shape to how to find true happiness. Yet we forget that in the face of all these challenges, only one thing is certain: uncertainty. Until we can make peace with the uncertainty of life, we can not truly move forward.

 

Mastering Creative Anxiety
By Eric Maisel, Ph.D.

Many anxieties arise as you attempt to create anything: a painting, a new recipe, a home business, or a solution to a personal problem. There is the anxiety associated with going into the unknown, with relinquishing control, with making choices -- innumerable anxieties arise as you endeavor to create, whether that creation is something as grand as a novel or as everyday as a new filing system or new decor for your living room.

Becoming a Life Change Artist

Today, more people than ever are thinking of making a life change, reinventing themselves to live more vibrantly, healthfully and creatively -- especially in the latter years of their lives.

Practical Intuition by Laura Day

Commentary by Henry Reed on

The Intuitive Career: How to Succeed as a Consultant, Reader, or Healer, by Cay Randall May What can society expect from a professional intuitive?
