Post by Kitkat on Thu 2 Jun 2011 - 0:17

An interesting Blog which I came across, interesting in that this person is simply writing down his story as it happened to him. He is not putting himself into any categories, he does not even purport to understand the whys and wherefors of it all ... he is simply giving his account of things as he experiences them.

Wednesday, 9 March 2011
What I’m about to tell you still makes no sense to me and for the majority of people reading this blog it won’t make sense to them either. For others, they will understand. For everyone who reads this journal over the coming months, I hope it improves your life on earth and helps give you a sense of comfort about what happens when we die. Writing it has already begun to help me. I am not trying to convince anyone of anything, least of all myself. I’ve just accepted that this is what it is. I’m simply reporting what I feel and experience. If anything, for me personally, it is a coming out of sorts, and in this way, it is a good feeling.
I have put the full first post into the spoiler - a taster if you like, and the link to the rest (which is ongoing and up to the present day) is at the bottom of this post.

over the coming months, I hope it improves your life on earth and helps
give you a sense of comfort about what happens when we die. Writing it
has already begun to help me. I am not trying to convince anyone of
anything, least of all myself. I’ve just accepted that this is what it
is. I’m simply reporting what I feel and experience. If anything, for me
personally, it is a coming out of sorts, and in this way, it is a good
feeling.

The simple truth is that for as long as I can remember, I’ve felt or experienced a presence of energies, spirits or something that doesn’t relate to the normal day to day reality of life. Call this energy whatever you like; ghosts, souls, auras or whatever. I’m not sure it has a name nor does it need to – it is a presence of something that I experience that ‘communicates’ with me. When I say communicate, I don’t mean that in a way that you and I may communicate via normal verbal or written communication that takes place every day of our lives. It is more like communicating through my mind without saying or writing anything.

Throughout this journal I will put parentheses around the words similar to the way I highlighted the word ‘communicates’ in the previous sentence. You will find that I use that a lot as a way of trying to describe in common terms, what it is like when I experience or feel the presence of an energy or spirit nearby. I do so because it is meant to highlight that I am emphasising that I have no idea if it is fact or fiction or whether I know if it is true or untrue. Therefore, it is a way of questioning what I actually experience or feel.

For most of my life I found this energy presence as a tiresome burden and something I wanted to avoid, mainly because I don’t understand why I have been ‘given’ this ability to experience this presence. And that’s why I avoided meditating for many years because the times in my life I had meditated, the more I felt the presence of energies around me. It was a bit of a catch-22 because for many years, I experienced mild headaches and meditating made the headaches go away for some reason although I have no idea why. You might think it crazy to choose headaches over feeling the presence of energies around me but when you don’t understand something or are fearful of it, you tend to choose the easier or more rational option. When I finally accepted this was normal for me and accepted it as a part of my make up (and I think we all have the potential to experience what I experience), the headaches went (I don’t know why either) and my other life became my normal life.

The best part of all this is when I feel the presence of an energy or spirit that I somehow ‘know’ to be that of my Grandma. She often 'speaks' to me through my dreams or at times when I’ve been willing to accept this ‘gift’ via intense meditation, it can feel as though she is sitting in the chair next to me and we are having a conversation even though we aren’t in the true meaning of conversation. Please understand, I can’t physically see her but I see an energy. It isn’t on a level we understand as part of what we experience with others on earth. The best way to describe it is I see what some people might consider an aura – which then begins to form an outline of a presence of energy or light that I feel is my Grandma.

Now before I go on, I need to tell you that I am not claiming I have supernatural powers nor do I consider myself a lunatic or a nut job (although I have questioned this assertion on some occasions when I’ve experienced an intense presence or actually started to talk to a presence). In fact, I’m normally the most sensible and logical person around.

To be honest, for most of my life, I’ve absolutely hated having this ‘ability’ to feel and ‘communicate’ with this presence. In my mind, I’ve continually questioned and dismissed all of this as bullshit. So I’ve just decided to write it as it is. I have no concept whether what I’m about to tell you is actually true or not (and I’d really welcome someone giving me a logical explanation either way – however, as yet, no ‘expert’ on either side of the fence has been able to do so.)

By ‘coming out’ about all this I recognise that my day to day career as I know it could be about to end, I’ll no doubt lose some friendships and many acquaintances as people will quite rightly question my sanity (don’t worry, I’ve done it many times myself) and each and every person I’ve ever come across in business, corporate or personal life will look for clues to whether there was a time they could pick a hint of insanity or madness at one or many points in our relationship. I especially apologise to my family and those close to me who I love dearly.

No doubt some of you reading this are asking the question; then why come out now? Why put yourself out there, damage your reputation, put a very comfortable six figure salary and life at risk and open up the chance of ridicule and while causing potential embarrassment to myself and those close to me?
I don’t have the answer. Like most of the important decisions I’ve made in my life, it just feels the right time and I’ve been ‘nudged’ a bit by my grandma who seems to be ‘telling’ me that coming out will help others as well as myself.

I encourage you to read my story and experiences with an open mind and make your own mind up from there. I repeat, I have no real idea whether what I experience is real or not.

For me, there seems one undeniable fact – based on my own experience. The power of the mind is phenomenal. The more meditation I do, the more my mind seems to be able to do and experience.

For me, if I meditate, I get messages in my dreams and visits from this presence. That’s just what I experience. What I choose to do with these messages is up to me. Maybe it is the same for you or could be that way if that is what you choose to do.

Tomorrow, I'll tell you about my first time.

Now that has some elements which really interest me but the link didn't work. No panic-most likely my fault. I'll try again. Thanks, kk.

That link worked and I've been in there for over half an hour. I wonder if that guy suffers from epilepsy. The headaches are important as migraines are also associated with this kind of experience. The thing is that not all sufferers get what he gets. I don't know of any kind of physical malady that would readily explain what he has experienced.

I'm really looking forward to hearing more from her too. I have read most of her blog and she has been tested in a Lab. She is also scientifically trained. Going to be really interesting.

PK wheels!

Convection currents and static electricity make things that are very light and balanced on a pin head move - even inside a jar because infra-red (heat) passes through glass as does electrostatic charge.

I've seen all this before - they become absolutely convinced PK is real but when they move on to the next stage and try to affect something bigger, they become immensely frustrated that it no longer works.

Again, it's an illusory effect.

John, you are quite correct to be concerned about artifacts produced by things such as convection currents and electrostatic effects. And as I've always pointed out in my blog, I don't consider the videos that I've posted as being evidential. They are simply there to illustrate some of the experiences I've written about. Quite honestly, I've gotten many requests for videos. But I was reluctant to post them at all.

That being said, convection currents don't adequately explain the phenomenon. I've tried reproducing the effect with coffee cups filled with hot liquid and surrounding the pinwheel. I can get the wheel to move outside the jar that way. I haven't been able to move it inside the jar that way, even by putting the heat source right next to the surface of the jar. (Perhaps it would work with a much hotter liquid, but quite honestly, my hands are never that hot, lol. Boiling water from the kettle was as hot as I was able to try.) And when I move the wheel outside the jar using convection, the wheel only spins in one direction and it maintains a relatively constant speed.

As for electrostatic effects, I've started using a Al foil pinwheel to control for that. The very high humidity levels we've been experiencing this spring would also tend to control for such artifacts.

Th fact that the pinwheel changes direction and speed within the jar tends to rule out the mechanisms you've mentioned. I've also been recording the amount of time it takes me each day to initiate movement of the wheel, and the fact that I've seeing some very interesting trends in the data also seem to support the argument that convection and electrostatic mechanisms are not adequate explanations.

The real test of such things is of course in controlled laboratory environments. I've been tested using such devices as an EEG to record brain activity and a photomultiplier tube to record photon emissions. I'm looking forward to seeing this work published. I'm also looking forward to participating in future research.

I appreciate your comments. I am interested in getting some answers and not in deluding myself that there are magical effects taking place. I happen to think that PK is a normal occurrence that will be explained by science. It just may take some new discoveries and models to make that possible.

I very much appreciate your not continuing with that possible debate, John. We don't want any slanging matches on this forum, do we? At least I don't THINK we do. Smile

Don't worry, I have no intention of continuing this 'debate'. And if this forum becomes a vehicle for supporting this person's delusion, I'll just leave this one as well.

Been there, done that - waste of time.

I have no objections to debating the science of these things. If you aren't up to the task, that's fine. But suggesting that I'm delusional is inappropriate and insulting. I gave you the benefit of the doubt that you were not a typical disbelieving "skeptic" that can't deal with anything that might possible challenge his world view. And yet you immediately classified me as someone of the "woo" variety.

I'd be happy to debate peer-reviewed journal articles on psi-based topics, if that's more your interest. Certainly the blog is my personal stuff and I don't expect anyone to treat it with the same consideration that a peer-reviewed journal should get. Or are you just one of those people who believe everything that Wiseman, Randi or Dawkins have to say without reading the articles for yourself? Do you turn your back and plug your ears when the Rupert Sheldrakes of the world present their findings and then give your opinions on that work based on ignorance?

I saw your comments regarding my blog and joined the discussion. I guess a "welcome to the forum" was too much to ask for? I have to say I'm not impressed. I usually find people who are up for an intelligent discussion don't need to be so rude. I don't expect people to agree with everything I have to say, but some very basic manners would be appreciated.

John, you remind me of Peter Atkins in this radio debate with Rupert Sheldrake. Atkins never bothered to even read the research being talked about and comes across as an arrogant doofus. His assertion that anything he disagrees with must be wrong just on principle isn't enough to win the debate.

Thanks, krisisle.

The link to Sandstone's blog had also been quoted in one of my posts above, so I have covered it up if that's what you want, Sandstone - though I don't really understand why you want it deleted?

It's not actually deleted, still there hidden behind that little square, and can be put back as was - if you so wish?

The fight is over - I'm back!

After many, many internal battles, I'm convinced my 'work' is not done and I'm being implored by some strong spiritual presence to start writing again. It has been nearly a year but I return stronger and with a lot more knowledge too.

I'm being guided towards helping others receive messages via their dreams so that is what I will do. It is something I've been contuing in any case while I had my blogging hiatus.

If you have a dream you want some guidance on (free, I will never charge for readings of any sort), please email me at wcmedium@gmail.com and while I canoot gurantee what comes up, I am always guided by the principle of being honest and being guided by the spirits that just won't leave me at peace.

Lesson from the TV show Medium

I'm not normally abig watcher of TV. However, I was away interstate on business recently and found myself unable to sleep and tossing and turning. After a while, I gave up trying to force myself to sleep and instead, turned on the television in the hotel room.

The TV show Medium was on and in the middle of an episode. The lead character that depicts Allison Dubois was having a dream where conflicting forces were competing for her attention and where one of her daughters appeared in danger.

Naturally, this got my attention given I had fought so long and hard against the 'man with the dark hair spirit' who just wouldn't leave me alone over the past 12 months. When the character in the TV show decided to embrace the 'less savoury' of the spirits in order to be able to move ahead with her life and work, it was like a lightbulb moment for myself as well.

Rather than fighting against the intrusion of the spirit who seemed to be part of every mediation I undertook in early 2011 (and who caused me to just stop meditating altogther), I decided to try meditating again and learn to accept that there were more 'spirits' besides my grandma who wanted my attention - and I've since learnt that there is always some reason why a 'spirit' wants to get a 'message' across.

You see, two weeks after I started meditating (spiralling) again, my mother paid us a visit from interstate and as she is getting older, decided to bring some old family photos to reminisce about the past. Included in a stack of photos was one that caused me to yell out in shock when I first saw it (to be honest, I swore more than a few times when it flashed before my eyes).

It was the image of the 'spirit with the dark hair and hula hoop' who had infiltrated my meditations and wouldn't leave. In reality, it was a picture of my grandfather, my mother's Dad, my grandma's husband and a man who died in his twenties of a heart attack before I was born. I'd only ever sen one picture of him when I was young and had never remebered the image.

This completely shocked me (no, he wasn't carrying a hula hoop) but he was running on a beach and I had to take several deep breaths to calm myself.

Ultimately, my fear of the 'hula hoop spirit' disappeared and a sense of calm returned to my life (in more ways than one) including my desire to begin meditating again.

My greatgrandfather and I have 'spoken' on several occasions while I've been 'spiralling' and he has got his message across to me about my mother and her health issues. I am looking out for her.

You see, I cannot explain so many things, coincidences, intuitive moments and actions. Amazingly, these moments happen to me more regularly when I'm meditating and spiralling. Maybe because I'm thinking about it more, maybe for no reason at all.

The important thing for me is that I'm content that I can get back to being me - a normal guy, working to make a life like everyone else and a person that for some reason, seems to get messages through mediation and dreams.

Next time, I'll share the message from 'Grandma' that she wanted Shirley to hear. And thanks to Shirley for agreeing (in fact wanting me) to share it with everyone on my blog.

And I'll do my absolute best to get to emails as soon as a I can.
