Secrets of Children’s Spirituality

By Henry Reed

Spirituality is a mixed blessing, for while it may open the child to the secrets of the universe, such knowledge can also be a burden on the child. Adults face similar challenges and the parents may find their own spiritual issues mirrored in the struggles of the child. (A Commentary on the book by Tobin Hart, The secret spiritual world of children.)

Why Edgar Cayce Was Not a Psychic: Typological Issues and Their Social and Religious Consequences

By Harmon Hartzell Bro, Ph.D.

The thesis of this paper is that using the term "psychic" as the central typological designation for Edgar Cayce misdirects serious inquiry on who he was and what he did, as well as impedes replication of his activity, by emphasizing his acquisition of data at the expense of the rich system of values which he both expounded and enacted, and in which he grounded his own self-understanding and practice.

The Voice: How The Bible Reveals Reincarnation

By Captain L. Edward Van Hoose

Remote Viewers: The Secret History of America’s Psychic Spies

By Jim Schnabel

Book Summary by Dan Bales

The attempted legitimatization of Remote Viewing during the Cold War has unfolded like a well conceived drama. But as is popularly known about truth, it is sometimes stranger than fiction. And like all the journeys that are perfect for our lives, we emerge from our sagas changed.

Reading the Enemy’s Mind: Inside Star Gate--America’s Psychic Espionage Program By Paul Smith.

Book Summary by Dan Bales

Born and reared amidst bureaucracy and hierarchy, Remote Viewing as a term and concept was created to discriminate it as a subject that is perceptual, rather than phenomenon that is purely psychic.

Mind-Reach: Scientists Look at Psychic Abilities

By Russell Targ & Harold E. Puthoff

Book summary by Jenna Cowles-Ludwig

Remote viewing (RV) is the ability to see things with the mind's eye that are blocked from normal sight by physical constraints. Because of impeccable, scientific experiments conducted in the late 1970’s - performed occasionally by the very skeptics that sought to disprove them - remote viewing has been established as a viable human skill.

The Conscious Universe: The Scientific Truth of Psychic Phenomena

By Dean I. Radin

Book Summary by Denise L. Dahl

Over three hundred years ago, the world was divided into a physical world and a world of personal experience. But things changed when quantum mechanics was discovered in the 1920s. Physicists began to study things that were invisible and this forced them to adopt the idea that they were not separate from the object they were studying.

My Crazy Uncle: A Translucent Identity An excerpt from the book: 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. Then Iago imposes a sense of limitation, of something missing, which we can never quite put a finger on. 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. Minor decisions or major decisions are often made based on feeling, even when the reason for the feeling is unclear. Intuition is knowing without knowing why we know. It is knowledge we aren't born with, nor do we reach it with analytic argument.

An Expanded Vision of Being Human

By Paul von Ward

Did you know that frontier science and ancient traditions suggest that the real you is more than a one life-time, physical being? What would you think if someone offered you evidence that you have lived one or more lifetimes prior to this one? And that you'll live again in a new body after the death of your current one?

The Stargate Chronicles: Memoirs of a Psychic Spy

By Joseph McMoneagle

Summary by Michael Lynch

McMoneagle gives a very clear and very specific definition of what constitutes the protocol of remote viewing (RV). He is equally explicit about what does not qualify as remote viewing. For him, the key ingredient is the scientific research method known as double-blind.

Heart Awareness Provides Special Revelations

By Henry Reed

Edgar Cayce consistently spoke of the highest form of consciousness, as well as its destined goal, as the knowledge that we are simultaneous both individuals and one with God. In one statement he gave a clue about how to achieve this realization: "...the purpose of the heart is to know yourself to be yourself and yet one with God..."

What Are We to Make of the Bleep?

By Henry Reed

I have encountered three responses to the movie. The first is excitement that a movie addresses topics to a general audience that are of such vital interest to members of the A.R.E. community. The second is disappointment that the movie didn’t show anything "new," meaning what the person knew already. The third is an expression of curiosity about how these topics, long a part of the Edgar Cayce material, are being presented to a general audience.

The God Code: The Secret of Our Past, the Promise of Our Future

By Gregg Braden

Book Summary by Linda Brown

The book is based on the fact that the basic elements of DNA - hydrogen, nitrogen, oxygen and carbon translate directly to key letters of both the Hebrew and Arabic alphabets and that in both alphabets they spell the name of God. What this means is that the letters of God’s ancient name "are encoded as the genetic formation in every cell, of every life."

Induced After Death Communication: A New Therapy for Healing Grief and Trauma

By Allan L. Botkin, Psy.D. & R. Craig Hogan, Ph.D.

A Book Excerpted
Becky excitedly described to me what she experienced. “I saw my mother,” she said, a broad smile across her tear-stained face. “I told her, "I love you," and she said, "I love you too." Then she hugged me. I could actually feel her arms around me.” But at the time of this experience, Becky's mother had been dead for five years.

Science and the Akashic Field: An Integral Theory of Everything

By Ervin Lazlo

A Book Excerpted
Before embarking on the search for an integral theory of everything, we should review the puzzles that are emerging in the pertinent fields of the sciences. We should be familiar with the unexpected and often strange findings that stress the current theories of the physical world, the living world, and the world of human consciousness, for only then can we understand the concepts that not only shed light on one or the other of these persistent domains of mystery, but also address the elements they have in common-and thus give us a new, more integral understanding of nature, mind, and universe.
An excerpt from:

The Integral Vision of Reality Science and the Reenchantment of the Cosmos: The Rise of the Integral Vision of Reality

By Ervin Laszlo

After our explorations of the big questions of universe, life, and consciousness, and the existential questions of morality, reincarnation, and immortality, it is time to get down to the most fundamental question of all. What is the real nature of the world we live in?

Nearing Death Awareness Mary Anne Sanders, M.A.

Nearing Death Awareness (NDA) refers to the special, unusual communications of the dying. As death approaches, the person seems to have a unique awareness in people, places, and things around them. This awakening gradually progresses and increases as their consciousness shifts from here on earth to another more spiritual plane of existence. Hence the name, Nearing Death Awareness. This Atlantic University Master's Degree Service Project addressed the phenomenon of Nearing Death Awareness and how it can have positive implications of spiritual growth for both the dying and their witnesses.

Science and the Akashic Field: An Integral Theory of Everything

By Ervin Laszlo

Book Summary By Clayton Montez, M.A.

Mental Radio By Upton Sinclair

Book Summary by Jed Bendix

Upton Sinclair became first aware of the supernatural as a young man when he met a Unitarian minister who claimed to be able to talk to ghost. Several years later, Upton’s wife, Mary Craig Kimbrough, persuaded Upton to research the paranormal. As a result, from 1928 to 1930, Upton and Mary did over 300 hundred telepathic experiments.

Mind to Mind

By Rene’ Warcollier

Book Summary by Jed Bendix

Science and the Reenchantment of the Cosmos: The Rise of the Integral Vision of Reality

By Ervin Laszlo

Book Summary by Clayton Montez

Findings at the cutting edge of modern science imply that the cosmos is pregnant with meaning for our life. We are not isolated from everything else in the universe, but an integral part of it. The insights of technological science are coming together in the belief that Intelligence is involved in the formation of the universe and that there is mind and purpose that guides us to realize our human potential.

Entangled Minds: Extrasensory Experiences in a Quantum Reality

By Dean Radin

Book Summary by Denise L. Dahl

The word "entanglement" was coined by one of the founders of quantum theory Erwin Schrodinger. It refers to the connections between separated particles that remain connected regardless of distance. These connections are instantaneous and operate outside the usual flow of time. This implies that seeing things as separate objects is in a sense an illusion created by our limited perception. Bioentanglement has to do with quantum connections with and among living systems. In fact, entanglement may extend to everything in the universe.

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.

Enhancing the Intuitive Coping Style through Transpersonal Course Instruction

A Pilot Study

By David W. Miller

Many people are unaware of their inherent intuitive skills for dealing with the stressful situations of modern life. But others are aware of this intuitive transcendent phenomenon in the form of hunches and have learned how to sporadically use it. A few have learned how to trigger this intuitive skill and use it to cope with modern life. This culminating project for Atlantic University addresses the question of what kind of training experiences might be used to help people adopt an optimal coping style for modern life. The assumption was that the deepening of one's own experience with meditation and intuition would have a positive impact.

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?

Applied Remote Viewing: Project Blind Awareness

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."

The Social, Spiritual, and Religious Effects of Numinous Experiences

By The Rt. Rev. Dr. Bruce D. LeBlanc

While researchers have investigated religious and spiritual experiences, often within the classification of parapsychological phenomena, little research has been undertaken specifically about numinous experiences. This present study provides some reflective insights on how various individuals handle this one particular form of psychic experience.

A Comparison of Astrology Charts for the Same Person by Different Astrologers

By J. Sue Gagliardi

Twenty different astrologers were asked to create and interpret the astrological birth chart of one individual. Variations and similarities were observed. The majority of the interpretations did identify the subject’s career and accurately forecast future conditions in the subject's life.

Were the Atlanteans Neanderthals? Atlantis and the Kingdom of the Neanderthals: 10,000 Years of Lost History

By Colin Wilson

A Commentary by Noble Augusta

I would never have connected Neanderthal cave men with stories about the technologically advanced civilization of Atlantis. By the time I had begun the third chapter, I was out of my seat, reaching for my handy desk-top globe and world atlas. To anyone else who reads this book, I might suggest they get their own globe out, too.

Taking The Journey to Wild Divine

Making Psychology Complete and Essential for Understanding of the Human Mind, Behavior and Intuitive Awareness:

Presidential Address of the 16th Annual Conference of National Academy of Psychology, Bombay, India, December 14-16, 2006

By M.B. Sharan

Academic Dean, Rourkela Institute of Management Studies, Rourkela, India.
Is psychology really understanding all the social problems and solving them? Is it really helping others and do people have respect for this subject? These are some of the questions we need to answer honestly.

The Transpersonal Concept of Thought Forms

By Lori Alavani

“It’s all in your mind.” How often have we heard someone dismiss another’s thoughts and feelings with those words? Those who identify “reality” with what can be physically perceived and measured are quick to belittle our idle and not-so-idle thoughts. That which we mentally and emotionally dwell upon is supposedly less consequential than that which we eat and drink. To those who believe that reality extends beyond the physical world, thoughts and feelings are not taken so lightly. Serious occultists, meaning students of hidden wisdom and the inner nature of things, consider thoughts and feelings as real as anything you can hold in your hand.

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). It is based on the premise that your consciousness -- your point of focus which can be compared to a cursor on your computer screen -- can create physical effects in your brain as well as the other way around.

A Romp through the Quantum Field:

By Meryl Ann Butler

Interviews with Gregg Braden and Dr. Bruce Lipton
"Your thoughts are not contained in your head - they are a part of the Quantum Field," Lipton continues. "When playing through your nervous system, the thoughts generate a vibratory field similar to that of a tuning fork. Thought vibrations interact and entangle with harmonically-resonant structures in the Field. Simply, we activate and bring into our lives the things that we think about the most."

Celebrating 2012: Experiencing the Future of Consciousness Now

By Henry Reed

For five hot and steamy days in August a group of seventeen hearty souls explored the possibility of engaging themselves in the future of consciousness. While residing in cabins located within a wooded sanctuary, the participants worked together under the assumption that the purpose of prophecy is to engage people in the co-creation of the future. The group gatherings involved discussions of ideas, possibilities, and experiences. We also took advantage of special technologies developed at Atlantic University that allow the participants to “channel” their own contribution to the information pool surrounding our investigations.

The Big Book of Near Death Experiences

By P.M.H. Atwater

Because of four major clinical, prospective studies done in three countries, and a host of papers published in peer-reviewed journals, the near-death experience today is the number one choice of scientists worldwide to study consciousness itself

The Mayan Calendar and the Transformation of Consciousness

Carl Johan Calleman

Book Summary by Mimi Hoke

The Mayan calendar is based on a philosophy of natural rhythms that are in synch with the cosmic plan and, therefore, prophetic. The structure and cycles of the calendar reveal the time plan for the evolution of human consciousness, and correlate with the wave patterns of significant historical events.

The End of Eden: The Comet That Changed Civilization

By Graham Phillips

Commentary by Noble Augusta

Imagine what it would be like for a small town of fifty to a hundred people to host Woodstock, every day for two thousand years with no reason for anyone, at any time, to feel the need for town safety. Let your mind get around a kind of Eden where everyone got along and folks lived in harmony with each other. Imagine this utopia is in every place of human habitation around the globe. OK, imagine something like Haley's comet streaking across the sky. Everyone would turn out to watch a magnificent star together.

THE OMEGA PROJECT: Near-Death Experiences, UFO Encounters, and Mind at Large

By Kenneth Ring, Ph.D.

Book Summary by Quentin T. Benson

Visionary experiences are forcing us to think in new ways, which may be the purpose of these events, leading humanity to "modify our basic ideas of how reality works." They are not designed to control us, but to confound us. Extraordinary experiences loosen the chains of fixed ideas and make room for new ones. Before a new system can be put in place, the old system must be deconstructed and abandoned.

Old Souls: Compelling Evidence from Children Who Remember Past Lives

By Tom Shroder

Book Summary by Venerina Conti

2012: The Return of Quetzalcoatl

By Daniel Pinchbeck

Book Summary by Leah J. Henry

According to Toltec and Mayan prophesies, the world will undergo a momentous change in 2012. Specifically, a 5,000 year cycle will end and a new world will be born. The nature of that new world may well depend on our willingness and ability to begin thinking in a completely different way about our planet and ourselves.

December 21, 2012 is the End of a Cycle

A Commentary by Henry Reed On the Book

Apocalypse 2012: An Investigation into Civilization's End

By E. Joseph

What is the meaning of the Mayan's calendar ending on December 21, 2012? Prophecies surrounding that date have been causing much speculation. Separating the objective information from the mythical is not always easy.

Psychology of the Future

By Stanislav Grof

Summary by Pat Clendenen

Most of us in our ordinary state of consciousness identify with only a small part of who we really are. In nonordinary states of consciousness we have the ability to access a deep inner intelligence that guides us through the healing and transformation process.

Looking at Reincarnation

By Ralph Davis

We could examine the subject of reincarnation from many different angles. Many books have been written about it; many more will be. Just as popular interest in—and acceptance of—reincarnation has mushroomed in the last 40 years, our knowledge of the subject has grown exponentially. Along with this new knowledge have come new ways of applying it to healing.

Making the Case for Soul Groups, by Joanne Aaronson

Over the years, I’ve heard that souls can come together in one or more lifetimes to help each other. When souls incarnate at similar times in order to work on life issues together, they are known as soul groups. I began to feel that this phenomenon was occurring in my life recently as the following story typifies
