1. Heal & Transform Your Life through Our Next Worldwide Potentiation Ceremony

Sol Luckman

Register for our new monthly offering: Worldwide Potentiation Ceremony. This is a new way to save on the “revolutionary healing science” (Nexus Magazine) of Potentiation Electromagnetic Repatterning.

Next Worldwide Potentiation Ceremony: Sunday, October 4, 2015 from 10-10:30 PM New York time (2-2:30 AM UTC, Monday, October 5).

Since 2004 the Phoenix Center for Regenetics has offered a leading-edge technique for DNA activation known as the Regenetics Method, starting with an “ener-genetic reset” called Potentiation, for transforming the body, mind, and spirit.

This unparalleled form of sound healing, which employs specific vowel combinations sung to the renowned Solfeggio scale, was partly inspired by new genetic research revealing that DNA can be sonically activated—noninvasively and even remotely—to actualize your unique potential in all aspects: physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual.

Over the past decade, we have worked with thousands of individuals and have had the honor to train numerous Facilitators to perform this life-changing work for their friends, family, clients, and even pets. The results have been astonishing, as evidenced by our enormous body of Testimonials.

For a more in-depth look at Potentiation, check out author Brendan Murphy’s Diary of a Potentiator as well as Dr. Julie TwoMoon’s article on her experience of this empowering methodology.

You might also enjoy Regenetics co-developer Sol Luckman’s interview on Speaking of Health radio in addition to the complimentary online copy of the now classic Book One on the Regenetics Method, Conscious Healing.

In 2011, responding to popular demand, we published a how-to book, Potentiate Your DNA, which immediately became a bestseller and has since been translated into Spanish. New Dawn Magazine described this pioneering text as “both fascinating and an astounding, perhaps even world-changing theory.”

Now in 2015, having had considerable experience successfully performing this work at a distance, sometimes for large groups, we are thrilled to introduce a monthly Worldwide Potentiation Ceremony that will take place the first Sunday of every month at 10-10:30 PM Eastern (New York) time (2-2:30 AM UTC, Monday).


How the Ceremony Works

You or your loved ones can participate meditatively in the thirty-minute session from wherever you are in the world. There is no need to be online or on the telephone. Simply use your intention to “tune in” to the activation, which we (Sol and Leigh) will perform on our end for the entire group of registrants as detailed in Potentiate Your DNA. You can even be asleep during the ceremony if you find yourself drifting off or in a faraway time zone.

To read more detailed information on preparing for the session, we encourage you to download the free chapters from Potentiate Your DNA here and start by reading Chapter 8 beginning with the section, “Know that All Healing Is Self-healing.”

The distance aspect of this work is addressed in various places, including our FAQ and Timeline & Principles page. It is worth noting that Potentiation is typically performed at a distance. In fact, virtually all of our client feedback stems from remote sessions.

2. How the Microbiome Will Destroy the Ego, Vaccine Policy & Patriarchy

Sayer Ji

The relatively recent discovery of the microbiome is not only completely redefining what it means to be human, to have a body, to live on this earth, but it is overturning belief systems and institutions that have enjoyed global dominance for centuries.

A paradigm shift has occurred so immense in implication that the entire frame of reference for our species’ self-definition, as well as how we relate fundamentally to concepts like “germs,” has been transformed beyond recognition. This shift is underway and yet, despite popular interest in our gut ecology, the true implications remain unacknowledged.

It started with the discovery of the microbiome, a deceptively diminutive term, referring to an unfathomably complex array of microscopic microorganisms together weighing only 3-4 lbs. in the average human. This discovery represents a Copernican revolution when it comes to forming the new center, genetically and epigenetically, of what it means in biological terms to be human.

Considering the sheer density of genetic information contained within these commensals, as well as their immense contribution to sustaining basic functions like digestion, immunity, and brain function, the microbiome could just as well be relabeled the “macrobiome”—that is, if we are focusing on the size of its importance rather than physical dimensions.

For instance, if you take away the trillions of viruses, bacteria and fungi that coexist with our human cells (the so-called holobiont), only 1% of the genetic material that keeps us ticking, and has for hundreds of millions of years, remains. One percent isn’t that much for the ego to work with, especially considering it now has to thank what were formerly believed to be mostly “infectious agents” for the fact that it exists. Even more perplexing, the remaining 1% of our DNA contributed to the collective gene pool of the holobiont is at least 8% retroviral (yes, the same category as HIV) in origin!

Us against Them?

Once the object of modern medicine’s fundamental responsibility—the human body—is redefined and/or perceived with greater veracity, and “germs” become less other and more self, a challenge occurs for germ theory which seeks to differentiate between the “good” germs we are versus the “bad” ones out there that we must fight with antibiotics and vaccines.

As many readers are already poignantly aware, today’s political climate and agenda are unilaterally pro-vaccination on both sides of the aisle (conveniently funded by the same industry lobbyists), with a tidal wave of bills across the U.S. set to eliminate exemptions against mandatory vaccination. The rationale, of course, is that deadly germs can only be prevented from killing the presumably germ-free host through injecting dead, weakened or genetically modified germ components to “prevent” theoretical future exposures and infection. Obviously, this concept is intellectually infantile, and if you do some investigating you’ll find it was never quite grounded in compelling evidence or science.

But the intellectual implications of the microbiome go even deeper than undermining germ theory, vaccine policy, and the culture of medical monotheism that upholds these constructs.

Maternal Origins of Health & Ultimately Our Species Identity

Deep within the substratum of humanity’s largely unquestioned assumptions of what it means to be human, the microbiome has also fundamentally displaced a latent patriarchal prejudice concerning the relative importance and contribution of man and woman to the health and ultimately continuation of our species.

It has been known for some time that only women pass down mitochondrial DNA, already tipping the scales in favor of her dominant position in contributing genetic information (the seat of our humanity or species identity) to offspring. The microbiome, however, changes everything in favor of amplifying this asymmetry of hereditary influence.

Since we are all designed to gestate in the womb and come through the birth canal, and since the neonate’s microbiome is therein derived and established thereof, it follows that most of our genetic information as holobionts is maternal in origin. Even when the original colonization eventually changes and is displaced through environmentally-acquired microbial strains as the infant develops into a child, adolescent, and then adult, the original terrain and subsequent trajectory of changes were established through the mother (unless the newborn was C-sectioned into the world).

Put in simpler terms: if 99% of what it means to be human is microbiome-based, and if the mother contributes most, if not all, of the original starting material, or at least the baseline and trajectory of future changes in the inner terrain, then her contribution becomes vastly more important than that of the father.

Moreover, the conditions surrounding gestation (important because of maternal-to-fetal microbiome trafficking in utero), her general health, and the way in which she gives birth (home, birth center, or hospital), now take on vastly greater importance than previously imagined. In other words, being born in a hospital via C-section followed by vaccination will produce, genetically and epigenetically, a human that is so different—qualitatively—from one born at home, naturally, that the two babies could almost be classified as different species, despite sharing nearly identical eukaryotic DNA (which contstitutes only 1% of the holobiont’s total).

Scientific Inevitability of Birth Feminism

Given this perspective, obstetric interventions are the archetypal expression of a male-dominated paradigm that seeks to manage a woman’s birth experience with largely unacknowledged consequences for the health of our species. Protecting health and preventing disease have now been traced back to the origins of the microbiome, best expressed through natural birth in the home, which has been estimated to be as much as 1,000 times safer than hospital birth despite propaganda to the contrary.

In light of the new, microbiome-based view, the male role in protecting the health of women and children will be irrevocably downgraded in importance, not just professionally and medically, but biologically. First, it is interesting to look at the ancient roots of the biology-based psychospiritual disparities that exist between men and women, and which still influence today’s practice of medicine.

It would appear that men have from the beginning of time envied the creative role of women in conception, pregnancy, birth and caretaking. Erich Fromm described the pyschospiritual implications for men of this biologically-based existential disparity in terms of the phenomenon of womb-envy, exemplified by the biblical passage where God takes a rib from Adam to “create” Eve—an obvious reversal of the natural order of things, reflecting the inherent impotence men feel knowing their creative potency is of secondary importance.

It has been said, rightly, that the most powerful thing in the universe is to create life (normally attributed to “God”), and the second most powerful thing is to take it. It is no coincidence that recorded history is largely a documentation of the history of wars, of men “creating meaning” by killing men, and establishing symbol systems intended to capture by proxy the creative power latent within every woman’s body and experience.

And so, 10,000 years later, in a world ruled by monotheistic, male-principled religious and cultural systems, both in secular and religious form, it seems that the facts of our biology are now intervening to shake up these largely subconscious belief systems in favor of an ancient truth: women are superior to men, fundamentally. (This is not a type of superiority to be used against the “weaker sex,” men, but rather one that denotes a higher responsibility, and perhaps greater need to be supported by men to get the job done, together, as inscribed in the natural order of things and nature’s inherent design.)

The birth process, also, has been described as the closest thing to death without dying. It is ironic that anesthesiology, which could also be described in the same way, makes obstetrical interventions like C-section and epidural possible, at the same moment that it negates the spiritual experience of natural birth/women’s empowerment we are describing. Birth offers women a window into the “in-between” and a direct experience of Source that men, less likely to experience this phenomenon naturally, would later emulate and access through the various technologies of shamanism.

Clearly, protecting the microbiome is of utmost importance if we are making the health of our future generations a priority. Indeed, ensuring the health of our offspring is perhaps the most fundamental evolutionary imperative we have.

How do we accomplish this? What is the microbiome but ultimately a selective array of commensal microorganisms that originated from the environment: in the air we breath, the soil we interact with, and the water and food we ingest. This means we can’t simply live in a hermetically sealed bubble of shopping for organic, non-GMO certified foods at Whole Foods, while the entire planet continues to go to post-industrial hell in a hand basket.

Our responsibility becomes distributed across everything in the world, and every impactful choice then becomes relevant to the fundamental issue and imperative at hand. With the microbial biodiversity in Big Ag, GM-based agricultural zones fire-bombed with biocides, by the very same corporations that either own or distribute the “organic brands” we all love to think will save our bodies, if not the planet, we need to step deeper into our activism by stepping out of the diversions and palliative measures that don’t result in lasting change.

When we work with the natural world, when we honor and acknowledge what is unknown about the complex web that we all share, we will bring back a vital health that now seems far out of reach. When we engage technologies positioned in the war against germs and organisms, however, we are doomed to fail and cripple not only our species but our home.

3. Science Ain't Always Scientific

Brendan D. Murphy

[SL: You can immerse yourself in an enormous databank of similar material in what I consider to be a genuine masterpiece, The Grand Illusion: A Synthesis of Science & Spirituality.]

The Myth of Objectivity & Impartiality

Doesn’t science state that paranormal occurrences are impossible? Philosophically, the world of science can no longer maintain that position—not if it wants to appeal to today’s evidence. Evidentially speaking, many so-called paranormal phenomena have been irrefutably scientifically proved. The body of mainstream science has a history of becoming quite hysterical in the face of information seemingly competing for its “target demographic,” or even just information that doesn’t conform to the dominant paradigm in operation.

It is organized science that has often proved and continues to prove to be the biggest adversary to impartial discussion and consideration of novel data—an alien concept to many people due to the way science, particularly in the mainstream, has been mythologized as a totally dispassionate and objective enterprise that only cares for so-called truth (though the anthropogenic “global warming” scandal no doubt helped undermine that myth). We think of the man in the lab coat as impartial and analytical, but he is just as motivated by emotion as the next person, whether it be greed, fear, malice, love, pride, or ambition. Degrees and PhDs don’t suddenly make someone utterly impartial and free of emotional or intellectual prejudice or immune to other forms of corruption.

Consider the Nazi-like book-burning and persecution of pioneering scientist Wilhelm Reich in America—an allegedly free country—in the 1950s. Had Reich hate-mongered? Had he called for the torture and killing of baby seals? Had he conducted Satanic rituals and conjured hordes of demons? Taken candy from a baby? Voted Republican? No. He merely published his research into an energy he called “orgone,” which challenged scientists’ indoctrinated preconceptions and psychological imprinting about the nature of reality. Therefore, the only logical course of action was a book burning and jail for this dangerous lunatic. Of course. While the book burning was sanctioned by the government, it was supported by various scientists who were not capable of approaching his material logically and open-mindedly. Had Reich made his discoveries today, his material might have received a fairer treatment.

The great Indian physicist JC Bose had himself noted the presence of an “unconscious theological bias” operating within the institution of science. This is a theme that may be returned to repeatedly, for science provides many examples of the worst kind of religious thought when it follows in the “arrogant and authoritarian footsteps of the Papacy,” as Wilson put it. He further quipped that “someone who knew only recent history and was unaware of the past might come to the conclusion that Science, not Theology, is the main enemy of free thought and free enquiry.”

Science tends to be a more diverse area than orthodox religion and it is not as easy to generalize, but they certainly have their similarities. Kuhn wrote that an education in normal science is probably more narrow and rigid than any other except perhaps one in orthodox theology. It is noteworthy that “heresy” derives from the Greek hairesis, “choice.” “To be a heretic means to have choices, to opt for another way of believing, another kind of knowing, another channel of perceiving, another course of experience. Heresy is about having options,” writes John Lash. One thing any good dictator loathes is competition. More disturbing is “official” corporate science’s aversion to it when such competition takes the form of psychical and consciousness research—a widely lamented theme—though the situation is even worse in other areas (such as alternative health or overunity technology/free energy).

Here we will not be getting into the story of just how badly organized “skepticism” has lost its way—that’s another story. Suffice it to say that the term “skeptic” comes from the Greek skepsis, which means examination and doubt, and not knee-jerk denial. Somewhere then, organized skepticism and enthusiastic debunkers went wrong. Somewhere along the way, some people began to unconsciously mistake closed-minded cynicism and arrogance for skepticism—and the one thing the best known “skeptics” never seem to doubt, of course, is their own set of ontological or existential assumptions.

When someone provides a meticulously researched, quantitative challenge to conventional materialistic dogma, there is often a frenzied and juvenile response from many scientists and “skeptical” laypeople who hide behind the authority of science rather than utilizing its methods or spirit of inquiry to seek understanding. Kuhn explained that, because novelties are subversive of mainline science’s commitment to the status quo, normal science suppresses them. Despite this, as Kuhn also noted, as long as the status quo viewpoint contains an element of the arbitrary, novelty cannot be suppressed for very long. As Wilson observed, “Science achieves, or approximates, objectivity not because the individual scientist is immune from the psychological laws that govern the rest of us, but because scientific method—a group creation—eventually overrides individual prejudices, in the long run.”

We are not going to focus here on the corruption in the world of science that too often prevents scientific progress from occurring and serves to mire civilization in destructive beliefs and behavioral patterns; we merely wish to observe that the decrees of science, in particular mainstream and/or corporate science, cannot always be taken at face value, particularly science’s traditional pronouncements on so-called paranormal phenomena.

Letting Emotion Steer the Ship

Like non-scientists, scientists themselves often fall prey to emotions and attitudinal biases. As physicist Brian D. Josephson points out, “Some scientists are especially prone to whip up emotion ‘in the cause of science’ (or so they believe).”

When was the last time that emotion helped you reach a rational and impartial conclusion? Ray Hyman, a career disbeliever in psi, has gone so far to admit that “[t]he level of the debate [about psi] during the past 130 years has been an embarrassment for anyone who would like to believe that scholars and scientists adhere to standards of rationality and fair play.” Dean Radin has quite rightly observed that scientific truth, particularly in the context of psi, is determined primarily by nonscientific factors such as cultural conditioning, propaganda, rhetoric, ad hominem attack, politics, and competition for limited funding.

In fact, it is widely observed that the Scientific Priesthood or “elite” are driven to not perceive psi. Their egos have too much at stake, too much invested in an overarching paradigm that ruled that psi is an impossibility, and too much attachment to pet theories and beliefs that depend on its not existing. This tendency towards rigid dogmatism is incompatible with the fundamental spirit and basic methods of scientific inquiry, and has led many scientists to defend moribund worldviews and theories.

What is the point of further research if you think you already know what is possible and what is not? While hardcore “skeptics” think that the widespread beliefs in psi and paranormal experiences and events indicates the public’s decreasing capacity for rational thought, increasing belief in psi actually reflects just the opposite. But more to the point, it also represents the maturation of science and a fundamental evolutionary trend towards the greater advancement of the human race.

Veteran parapsychologist Stephen Braude has seen the ways emotion can subvert intellectual honesty and ethics: “Since dipping into the data of parapsychology, I have encountered more examples of intellectual cowardice and dishonesty than I had previously thought possible.”

While many think the basic issue is fear of the unknown (part of Rudhyar’s cultural provincialism), the reality is that all “skeptics” know the truth at a subconscious level. Their hostility and closed-mindedness, I believe, arises from the internal conflict or cognitive dissonance resulting from the clash between the hidden subconscious knowledge that is in conflict with their consciously held belief structures. Often these are imprinted very early in life and remain relatively intact thereafter. “Skeptics” loathe it when portions of their repressed knowledge are presented to them at a conscious level—it is an uncomfortable experience.

As someone who isn’t afraid of playing devil’s advocate occasionally, I have found that many people tend to react like addicts when their beliefs are challenged, even if politely. Rather than a mature, thoughtful response along the lines of That’s interesting, where did you learn that?, many people will go into defense mode and act as if their entire world is under siege: “That’s not possible, science says so! What you’re talking about is pseudo-science!” Of course, such pronouncements are almost invariably preceded and followed with zero devoted, determined, open-minded research.

Most of these knee-jerk reactions are nothing more than the acting out of ingrained mental habits. Some people are all too happy to rehash all the hearsay and assumptions they have gathered and lived by throughout their lives, as if that constitutes a valid argument. It doesn’t, but it maintains the apparent safety of a limited weltbild. Their opinions are almost always somebody else’s, but they mistake these opinions as self-evident truth, apparently by sheer force of the number of other people who happen to agree with them. In the words of IK Taimni, “Our thoughts, opinions, prejudices, and predilections are part of our mental possessions, children of our mind, and that is why we feel and show such tender regard for them.”

Raymond Moody has written that “‘explanations’ are not just abstract intellectual systems. They are also in some respects projects of the egos of the persons who hold them. People become emotionally wedded, as it were, to the canons of scientific explanation which they devise or adopt.” After dedicating a lifetime of research to an area, it would understandably be threatening to have your facts challenged, yet this is the response of the pride-filled ego, not of the analytical intellect. Science can only perform its role properly when the ego is removed (or at least tempered) and replaced with an unprejudiced, impartial search for truth, whatever it turns out to be.

Miseducation

One reason so many people make it through life with a fairly closed mind to “paranormal” information in particular is that they never have an experience that forces a catastrophic psychological upheaval upon them, leaving them to reassess everything they have ever assumed to be true. One of the key problems for people who have had these upheavals is that much of the population have not had them and thus have no experience with which they can compare them. Their “information grids” are bereft of any relevant or analogous information.

Sadly, much of the closed-mindedness in the world is engendered by the one entity that is supposed to achieve the opposite effect: the education system. I was at a friend’s house in Sydney one day (some time in the year 2007, if my memory serves me), when his girlfriend’s friend dropped by. She was studying medicine at one of Sydney’s universities. I was just making small talk with her, trying to strike up a bit of a conversation, when there developed an opening for me to mention a friend of mine and her impressive intuitive abilities. For a reason I was unaware of at that moment, I noticed my voice catching in my throat, and a strange reluctance to say what I was about to. In spite of this I forged ahead, saying something like, “My friend is very intuitive …” At which point she suddenly cut me off and blurted out, “I believe in science!”

I was stunned. She did not even let me finish my sentence, yet I had already offended her scientific sensibilities. Notice that I wasn’t telling her what I believed in; I was just making an honest disclosure based on my own repeated personal experiences, research, and observation of fact. She apparently heard me say something completely different to what I remember myself saying. In hindsight, I could see that my own intuitive faculties had kicked in and were subtly indicating that this person would not be receptive to what I was going to say; hence my initial hesitation. I have noticed this on many occasions. I sometimes have an inner knowing about the response I will get that I couldn’t possibly have without some kind of psychic (intuitive) function.

The girl was an unwitting believer not in science per se (her attitude and reaction were anything but scientific), but scientism. Scientism is generally defined as the collection of attitudes and practices considered typical of scientists. In theory, this sounds fine, even admirable, but when you look at official science’s track record—one marred by bias, intellectual snobbery, prejudice, and in many instances, lies, corruption, and corporate manipulation—a different meaning of scientism emerges. At this point, Raymond Moody’s description of scientism is apt (but still too polite): “a value judgement that other disciplines … are worthwhile only insofar as they conform their techniques of investigation to those of the physical and biological sciences.”

If these other disciplines don’t conform, they are “unscientific” by default. Since when does scientific research require isomorphism? This girl had obviously been well versed in what are considered appropriate or credible sources of information in the eyes of the educational establishment, and had, like so many obedient students of science, begun to develop a suitably scientistic attitude towards anything unfamiliar to her, such as psi phenomena. That is to say she was prepared to derogate before investigating. William Tiller, a “hard scientist” and pioneering psi researcher, has succinctly stated that scientism is a corruption of the science craft.

As Kuhn noted in the late 1960s, “Science students accept theories on the authority of teacher and text, not because of evidence.” The same goes for all students. Accepting official doctrine is always an act of faith to some degree, but to precisely what degree most of the indoctrinated never think to check. As for psi research, just as in Galileo’s day, the Scientific Priesthood still refuses to look through the telescope.

The history of science and human psychology shows clearly even into the present day that when the aspiring (or practicing) scientist is met with another person’s experiences that do not conform to the doctrine provided by teacher and text, the vast majority of the time the conscious firsthand experience being related is all too readily discarded in favor of the scientist’s pet theory—usually backed by his or her own absence of experience. Kuhn asks of the science student how s/he could be expected to know any better, since the doctrines and applications laid out in textbooks are not there as evidence, but simply because learning them is part and parcel of inheriting the paradigm that dictates current scientific practices.

It is such a loaded statement, “I believe in science.” Which branch of science? What period’s science? How are you defining “science”? Too often, because people are taught something at school or college, they make the assumption that it must be true—after all, “they wouldn’t teach us that if it wasn’t true!” Officially recognized scientific dogma may be based at least partly in truth, and indeed in some form of logic, but some people mistakenly and unconsciously leap to the conclusion that they have been given the whole truth and nothing but the truth, and that anything that does not fit within their academically defined scientific parameters is simply invalid or nonexistent. (Questioning the logic involved is also something of a no-no.)

Take parapsychology, a field of scientific research into psi that is over a hundred years old. Many introductory psychology textbooks, despite the incredible abundance of verifiable psi research available, have presented flawed descriptions of psi experiments and the field in general. Here we have a prime example (from a large pool of potential samples) of the education system miseducating through both distortion and omission.

In 1991 64 psychology textbooks published between 1980 and 1989 were surveyed for their references and content pertaining to parapsychology. Only 43 included some meaningful mention of it, meaning that a third ignored it completely. The authors concluded that overall these publications—intended for unassuming psychology students—presented a misleading and misrepresentative view of parapsychological research.

A follow-up review of texts from 1990 to 1999 showed the situation had improved little, and a review of 2002 psychology texts found that even a notorious career denialist—infamous for a near-pathological inability to report fairly and accurately on parapsychological and psychical research—was cited in 15 of the texts that mentioned parapsychology (a whopping 45% of that year’s introductory texts). Overall, skeptical coverage was roughly twice as extensive as that in favor of parapsychology and the situation appeared to have worsened from the 1990s overall, with factual errors and misleading reporting persisting. The authors suggested that the poor coverage could partly be attributed to the unfamiliarity of authors with the field of parapsychology and also a continued overreliance on secondary sources written by “skeptical nonparapsychologists.”

Unfortunately, because the assumption with which most students enter into college education is that they are going to be properly informed, it never occurs to many to question what they are presented with in a given field of study. Thus, the education system can be responsible for the perpetuation of myths and lies, at times serving the propagation of ignorance instead of enlightenment. Such myths usually die hard in the minds of the “educated,” regardless of the field of study. One example would be oncologists who force chemotherapy on people, despite research showing that this “treatment” actually increases cancer growth!

The established scientific worldview is based on centuries-old Newtonian-Cartesian philosophical underpinnings. Or perhaps it would be more accurate to say that the body of “accepted” data in science, and its interpretations, have led to this reductionistic outlook—along with science’s preferred exploratory methods. The officially accepted philosophical credo basically amounts to this: “The world/universe is a gigantic clockwork machine (at least at our macro scale/s) with independent parts or building blocks. It is deterministic and predictable using known math and science (quantum scales notwithstanding). The body is also a machine with different individual parts. If the body parts break down, you ‘fix,’ medicate, or replace them, as you would with a car. When you die, since your consciousness arose solely as an epiphenomenon of your brain, you cease to think, feel, experience, or exist in any capacity. Your life and existence at large are therefore innately meaningless (at least until you imbue it with your own personal meaning). Our collective existence as a species is merely a lucky Darwinian accident.”

I propose that this mechano-materialistic outlook (itself, more or less an 18th-century scientific ontology only slightly modified by 20th century physics) is a faith-based belief system maintained by the calculated and/or unconscious omission of massive tracts of factual data. In the context of mysticism, psi and occult phenomena in general (the “paranormal”), this is the sort of “scientific” attitude one is often met with.

As something of a former materialist (non-dogmatic, thankfully), I reserve the right to point out its inherent silliness. As the noted theosophist JJ van der Leeuw said, “[T]o conclude … that … the living individual is but a byproduct of the body and to exclaim with a triumphant and unholy joy that … we have proved that the body is primary and man in his aspirations and creative effort is but secondary, is as unthinking and unfounded as it would be to say that the artist is but a by-product of his violin since, when a string is missing, the possibilities of his artistic expression are changed forthwith.”

There is no room in this Newtonian-Cartesian worldview for “paranormal” communication between two people, no room for interactive bioenergetic fields, no room for mind-to-mind contact, no room for an afterlife, and no room for virtually all other occult phenomena. In short, the traditional scientific conception of reality and mind allows almost no room for consciousness (and has no way of explaining its existence), unless it is merely a product of electro-chemical processes in the brain.

Yet we need to remember, this is just a belief system. Never in an experiment has consciousness been created from inert matter. Unfortunately, even today, when it comes to “mind,” students of science are, without realizing it, indoctrinated into an incredibly narrow vision of possibility. They mistake this narrow-mindedness for a common-sense view of reality. They are not encouraged to have any sense of subtlety or mental flexibility—such traits largely arise, when they do, in spite of their education, not because of it. This is largely why debunkers and pseudo-skeptics continue to be taken seriously, or worse, as gospel on these matters—because the education system keeps churning out devotees of the mechano-reductionist theology.

Because mainstream science has viewed the paranormal largely with contempt (born of fear), it has not seen fit to study it. Given that it has not seen fit to study it, science in the mainstream has learned next to nothing about it. Can one logically dismiss a topic that one has refused to study and thus knows nothing about? This double-think appears to escape many “rational” scientists, in particular those who subscribe to some sort of materialistic theology.

What Ingo Swann refers to as “real or assumed scientific knowledge” could be loosely referred to as a paradigm. The paradigm’s general principles and tenets, that is, things that are deduced or postulated as being possible, and those that are deemed not to be possible—usually given the status of “laws”—are imprinted into the psyche of virtually all scientists, because these tenets are used to define what constitutes science and “valid” areas of scientific research. The paradigm constitutes a map of sorts: a cartography that the scientist uses as a reference point to decide what areas of inquiry are the most important, the most urgent, and the most “scientific.” The scientist checks where he is, in relation to where the paradigm tells him he should be.

If scientists stray too far into the world of parapsychology or the occult, they become “pseudo-scientists” by default; not because of their methods or their results—these things are immaterial—but because they are no longer operating within the parameters of what is defined as being politically correct and socially acceptable science. Thus, they must be quacks or crackpots, worthy only of ridicule.

Given the staunch philosophical materialism that has for many years been the map-maker and boundary-marker of “science proper,” we can see that the continued maligning of parapsychology and occult phenomena is a hangover from the turf deal Descartes struck with the Roman Catholic church, which arbitrarily split mind and matter: science would deal with matter, while the church would deal with (in the words of David Yurth) “spirit stuff.” This has led to a conceptual impasse and stalemate in which most vanguard scientists are currently mired, emotionally and doctrinally blinded to important yet verboten truths that have re-emerged in the form of cold hard data from fields including parapsychology, mediumship research and quantum physics.

The wholesale dismissal of uncomfortable observable facts as “pseudo-science” is, as Yurth points out, “cult-speak for ‘stuff we can see but cannot explain.’” It’s time to leave the cults of scientism and reductionist materialism behind.

4. Introduction to The Gift of Shamanism

Itzhak Beery


From Skeptic 
to Believer

Don José stopped on his heels in the middle of a dark busy avenue of Corona, Queens. He turned to me, paused, and looked up at me with his fierce black eyes, “Did you start doing healings?” he asked. Perplexed, I watched this short, powerful shaman whom I admired, dressed in a blue llama-wool poncho, white cotton pants, white fabric sandals, and a gray felt fedora, in total disbelief. I pretended to not understand him.

“So, did you?” he prodded me.

“Oh no, I didn’t, was I supposed to?” I finally said and went on anxiously protesting, “I’m not ready. How can I? I know nothing about it. I’m not even sure that this is what I want to do with my life.”

“You are ready,” he declared flatly and with authority. “Vamos, let’s go eat now,” he said as he opened the door to a Chinese restaurant.

This was unexpected. My thoughts were racing. What does he mean? Do I have to change my life? I was confused and also frightened by the weight of the enormous responsibility he put on my should­ers. Immediately my old self-doubts cropped up like monsters looming out of their cage. Is he tricking me? What does he want from me or 
see in me? How can he be so sure I have what it takes to do what he does? Besides, I am a declared skeptic, cynic and atheist. I’m just an ordinary ­middle-aged man who was brought up as a communist Jew. Oh my God, what did I get myself into? Do I have to? Why me? Why now?

Before we start on this fascinating journey I must confess to you that for the longest time I did not allow myself to believe in the mounting evidence of the existence of unseen worlds, nor did I take the time to learn about them. But despite my doubts I was slowly forced to admit their existence and relevance; I found that I just did not have any other choice. At this point I no longer tried to intellectualize or understand these things in a rational way, as the shamanic experience is truly about learning to surrender to the magical and join in the workings of life’s mysterious forces. I’m now convinced that we human beings are truly living in multidimensional realities and that as humans we have the ability to perceive knowledge, images, and information otherwise hidden from our ordinary senses by shifting from th­­e earthly plane into a shamanic state of higher vibrational consciousness. I believe that this is the key to humans’ survival for hundreds of thousands of years. It is not trickery or self-delusion as many more scientific and logical people might say, as we’ll see later.

Like me and perhaps you, there are millions of people who are now awakening every day, like sprouts after a long rain, to the call to embrace this age-old knowledge. Many indigenous societies have continuously lived with this wise worldview from the very beginning of time. We, in the technological, so-called First World, have forgotten it and in many ways have learned to despise it and label it as backward or primitive, rejecting it outright without even examining it. As the ancient Maya and Inca prophecies point out, since 1993 we entered into a new Pachacuti, a time of realignment and correction of the human journey and consciousness. It is time to be awakened and accept our true nature, by living in equilibrium and harmony between the two opposing and complementary forces of feminine and masculine that exist within each of us. It is a time to take the long overdue journey from our minds to meet our hearts. Only then, when the heart and the mind live in harmony, we can resolve war, poverty, and environmental destruction and ensure future generations’ survival on this miraculous planet.

I must confess that like many contemporary males I’m truly excited to play with the latest technologies and gadgets, read about new scientific discoveries, and hear about fresh innovations in every field, and I am sure I passed this enthusiasm to my kids. The future fascinates me, ignites my imagination, and sets free my fantasies. Growing up, I admired my dad’s constant search for new ways to improve machines to achieve better production and develop processes to make life’s tasks more efficient and convenient. I believe inventiveness and curiosity is ingrained in our DNA, as it is essential to our successful survival as a species on Earth. We have truly achieved a lot in the past few hundred years. We are now able to communicate in an instant all across the planet. Distances have become shorter; we travel into space; we predict the weather a year in advance; our homes are becoming digitized and weather insulated; we harvest solar, wind, and water energies; we engineer food to have long shelf lives; we have a DNA map of our bodies, better medical diagnostic tools, and robotic machines; and we all live longer.

No doubt this process is speeding up exponentially, as my friend Ray Kurzweil and other scientists say. And as this process accelerates, we need to rethink what kind of future human beings we are evolving into. We are now paying a huge price for these advances environmentally as a society as well as individually in our own physical, emotional, and spiritual existence. Obesity is at a record high. More people are using anxiety pills. Religious fanaticism is spreading like brush fire. It seems to me there is social disengagement and a disconnection from nature, which leads us to forget the most important aspect of who we truly are. Humans, like all animals, learn about the world through—and are entirely dependent on—their ability to employ their heightened senses for their survival: the ability to smell whether food is good or rotten; the coming rain; smoke from fire; and the subtleties in the fragrances of flowers. Touching, feeling, seeing, telepathically communicating over long distances, and energetically connecting to the wisdom and knowledge of spirits and our ancestors are all part of our human birthright.

This process of digitally shutting down the senses can be illustrated by this example. As a young graphic designer I still witnessed the use of hot type presses, where each character was set individually by pouring molten metal into a tiny mold and once cold it was hand assembled into a word, a sentence, and a story. The press took a group of three people to operate. Today we only have to type on a virtual keyboard and watch it appear on a flat screen. To create a brochure, we used to personally meet with the client, come up with a concept, draw a sketch in pencil, use water colors, colored paper, or markers (I still love that smell) to fill it in, and measure and draw the brochure’s size on a board with three different color pens. Once the copywriter’s copy was approved, we sent it to a typesetter. Getting back the galleys, we rolled it into a wax machine (which produced a great smell and texture) at a particular temperature. We then glued everything together on a white board, covered it with transparent paper for protection, and sent it by messenger for the client’s approval. Only then did it go to the printer, who then did color separations, prepared plates, etc. Today one person, using only his or her eyesight, with a click of a mouse chooses from prepared color palettes, template sizes, stock photography, and illustrations and can complete this entire process in less than a day on a flat computer screen in a virtual reality without leaving his or her chair. The tactile, physical, sensory, communicative, and team elements of the old process are gone.

Modern technology has certainly made our lives much easier and more convenient, but at the same time it has also separated us from nature. And in the process it has isolated and detached us from our own true human nature. This has bred in us a fear of nature and the unseen worlds that we cannot control. As technology progresses we are learning to shut down our own senses. Instead we rely on smartphone apps. We use these apps for everything from weather forecasting and GPS navigation to finding out about star constellations and taking our pulses. We have learned not trust our eyes anymore because we have an app for face recognition. We do not even have to trust our memory because everything’s stored on the Internet and it’s so easy to use Google. Consequently, there is a universal memory loss; I no longer need to calculate numbers or remember phone numbers and addresses as I used to because all this information is stored in my smartphone. Who needs to learn a new language when you can have an app that translates simultaneously? The danger is that we lose trust in our senses and ourselves. To diagnose our bodies we put our trust in the medical system. To know the truth about the world we trust what our politicians and the corporate media tell us. To know how to dress we trust the fashion gurus.

We give our religious leaders the monopoly on the connection to spirit. We are attempting to make logical sense of and, by extension, control nature, not live in harmony with it.

More and more people are plugged into technology 24/7. Unplugging and digital detox have now become buzzwords among the high number of gadget-users. People yearn for a time out—a break from the constant slavery of being connected—in order to gain a new perspective on life. There are even Internet rehab centers and technology-free vacations and retreats popping up to help us cope with “reality”! At Shaman Portal (www.shamanportal.org), the website I created as a hub for the global shamanic community, statistics show that three quarters of the visitors to the site come from the technologically advanced societies of the United States and Europe.

This sensory shutdown is real. You can tell by looking at the millions of eyes that are constantly glued to the two-dimensional screens of our smartphones, tablets, computers, and TVs. I am concerned human beings are becoming handicapped, dependent, and sometimes purely apathetic as we trade in our birthright sensual gifts and abilities for the gifts of technology. I believe we are in danger of losing our place as a species. Learning to trust and allow all your senses to come alive again can make you fully engage in life around you. The practice of shamanism helps to reestablish the “seeing” (our sixth sense or intuition), which is an important part of our ability to survive. Seeing is not linear or logical. It communicates to us in symbols, through poetry and idioms, and in body language, colors, shapes, smells, and bodily sensations.

Why a Book of Stories?

This book started with a vision—somebody else’s, though. “Pages, pages, pages—I ‘see’ white pages flying all around you,” Frank Andrews exclaimed, waving his right hand in the air in a large circle around his head. We were sitting in his cozy wood-paneled reading room for my yearly tarot card reading. A large flower arrangement and an antique crystal ball sat in the middle of the round table as my opened cards were spread in formation on the embroidered tablecloth. “You are going to write a book,” he proclaimed with unshakable certainty.

“Me? A book? Oh no, Frank, that’s totally ridiculous. I don’t have anything to write about or say. I am not a writer, I’m a visual artist. English is not even my first language . . . ” I went on protesting, finding all the excuses I could think of.

“But you will,” he repeated, looking at me through his large eyeglasses with his big, warm brown eyes. He giggled, saying, “You’ll see, you will see. Start writing stories about your healing experiences and spirit encounters, a page at a time.” I started to feel a certain excitement, but also mixed with a lot of doubt. Frank’s five little white Papillon dogs barked in excitement, looking at us with high curiosity from the gated kitchen door. I had met Frank, said to be one of the ten best psychics in the world, whose portrait was painted by Andy Warhol a few years earlier, and we had formed a close friendship. Later on you will read about a dream he starred in. And so it was, despite my disbelief and doubt in his “seeing.”

Some years before this it was an unexpected initiation vision I received in the High Andes that started me on an apprenticeship with my teacher and on the shamanic healing path. You will read about this later too.

I am not unique by any means. The truth is that many other shamans, healers, and seekers, as well as ordinary people, have had similar experiences. But I can only fully stand behind my own experiences, and I hope these will prompt you on your own path.

I am aware that writing this book goes against an old shamanic tradition of oral knowledge transmission. There is a reason why you never find books written by indigenous shamans prior to recent years. The concept of writing down wisdom teachings that have been passed down to shamans by their ancestors or from spirits—which they do not “own” to begin with, as they belong to everyone—has been unthinkable for most of history. Shamans believe that knowledge is not static; it is a living thing that changes in every moment in time, like nature herself. There are only a few things that do not change: the direction in which the sun rises and sets; the seven cardinal directions; and birth and death. Shamans believe that putting knowledge and wisdom down on pieces of paper and binding it between two covers freezes its energy and does not allow it or the reader to develop and grow. The Bible, the Holy Book as it is called, was itself a collection of tribal stories that were passed down as teachings from fathers to sons through many generations. You can expect that each person added his own version and interpretation. But once it was inscribed on parchment or animal skin, the religious authorities forbade changing even one period, let alone challenging it. Worse, some believed that God Himself transcribed it and, if so, we must apply every word, written thousands of years ago, to our more pluralistic and advanced technological society. This attitude has led to close-mindedness and fanaticism, as we see now in many societies around the world. Lacking their own direct experience of the Creator and nature, the representatives of the various religions try to impose their teachings on people. There have been many times that I asked my two teachers to write down their teachings, thoughts, and healing techniques for a book, and I always got slippery answers: “Maybe. . . .” “One day. . . .” “We’ll see. . . .”

Actually, scientific teachings are not all that different. All around the world, every day, students sit behind their desks to learn and be tested on scientific “facts” that don’t keep up with the times. Moreover, these can even prove to be misleading as every day we learn new things about our solar system, the brain, the body, nature, and human history. Our textbooks are mostly outdated and full of assumptions, not facts, and do not challenge students to discover their world. On the other hand, stories that have been passed down orally, requiring us to learn in more holistic and collaborative ways than pure memorization, teach us about ourselves, our morality, and our values as well as the universal laws and the limitless magic of the universe.

And yet I have to contradict myself again, because I acknowledge that books are a powerful and useful way to effect and spark ideas, to move people to action, and to expand consciousness and possibilities. After all, it was Hank Wesselman’s book Spiritwalker that introduced me to the world of shamanism. And it was a workshop by Michael Harner, who wrote The Way of the Shaman, that brought me to another workshop given by John Perkins, who wrote The World Is as You Dream It, which in turn guided me to becoming an apprentice of Don José Joaquin Piñeda, who in turn introduced me to the shaman Ipupiara. And it was a book by Olga Kharitidi, Entering the Circle, that opened my eyes to the phenomenon of holographic seeing. And it was a book by Sandra Ingerman, Soul Retrieval, about that ancient practice that greatly influenced me. I must also say that even before all of that I eagerly devoured all the books by Carlos Castaneda and Lynn Andrews that I could find. Following in this tradition, and without pretending to be an authority on the subject, I chose to write a book of stories that might connect with you emotionally and guide you indirectly into the shamanic ways of “seeing.”

The Power of Vision

Deep within each and every one of us, I believe, lie dormant visionary powers waiting to be realized and freed from the confines of our fears, cultural taboos, and old habits. Once in a while we get spontaneous glimpses of them in the forms of dreams, experiences of déjà vue, unplanned visions, out-of-body experiences, and other phenomena. Most people learn to minimize these experiences: “Just a silly coincidence”; “An accident”; “Only a dream.” However, I am convinced that once recognized and intentionally applied to our lives, these powerful intuitive experiences can help us become more in tune with life and help us live in harmony with everything around us, and so make us whole.

Being in touch with our “seeing,” our visions, can help us also chart new paths not only for our own life, but for society as a whole, hopefully allowing us to create a sustainable world that honors each individual person as magnificent, promotes equality between people, and builds respect for all animals, plants, and the natural elements. That is why shamans the world over believe that each of us can be a shaman possessing the potential to change him- or herself and the world around us. That is what makes the shamanic practice so relevant to our digital modern age. After all, the premise of the practice of shamanism is to foster real, measurable physical, emotional, and mental change.

Going forward you will read actual, true stories that span generations: stories of premonitions and forewarning dreams; stories of people who have long since passed and have returned to inflict pain or to bring objects to their rightful owners; stories of past lives that continue to influence people’s lives in the present; stories about remote viewing of illness or emotional or physical problems, of seeing into others’ life situations and homes; stories of meeting people in the spirit world and then meeting them again in real life; stories of seeing spirits of animals that are embedded in people’s bodies, and of seeing spirits of unborn or aborted children. You will read about visions of gods and other spiritual entities as they come in holograms, and about animal spirits that manifest in our reality. Through these stories I hope you will be guided to unleash your inner modern-day shamanic powers, to ignite your natural intuition, and to become a shamanic warrior, one that learns to face your innermost fears and to act decisively to achieve your goals and dreams in spite of them. These are my experiences; I hope they will inspire you too.

Most of the stories that you are about to read occurred in my life over the past few years.* I initially recorded them in an effort first to convince myself, and maybe others, that there are some universal phenomena whose origins we may not completely understand at this time, but nevertheless can have an incredibly useful and practical value in our daily lives. The common thread in these stories is that they all started in a vision or a dream, sometimes invited and other times not, and ended up manifesting in what we call “reality.” Although many different spirits played an important role in each of these events, the stories are not intended to be spiritual; as I said, they were written simply to record facts, and maybe to inspire.

Messages from spirits in the form of power animals, guides, and teachers during shamanic journeys to other worlds, nightly dreams, or meditation allow us to receive useful insights, answers, knowledge, and healing for others or ourselves. But these techniques are not new. Similar techniques have been used since the beginning of human time by healers and shamans in all indigenous cultures all over the world. The word shaman is translated as “person who possesses the knowledge” in Tungus, Siberia. Or as a contemporary Tungus shaman claimed when I asked him, “the keeper of fire,” which I like better as it widens the shaman role to the whole community. A shaman (a see-er) is a person who journeys to nonordinary realities in an altered state of consciousness, at his or her own will, and brings back knowledge that can effect physical or mental changes in this realm for the purpose of healing or for knowledge. There are various ways shamans reach these realms—by chanting, drumming, dancing, consuming hallucinogenic brews, or eating mushrooms—but their goal is always the same: to tap in to and connect and align with the vast source of knowledge found in the natural world, where all knowledge exists. The shamans with whom I have met or worked insist that all humans have the inherent ability to tap in to this source. Throughout our lives we experience this involuntarily and call it coincidence, intuition, miracle, or other names.

In my workshops I like to tell participants that all humans are walking iPhones. We all have bodies—the phone itself. And we all have software—our brain. And like iPhones, we all have transmitters and receivers or antennas, which enable us to broadcast and receive information to and from long distances out of thin air. As with an iPhone, we can’t see the waves of information that enter or depart our bodies; they are pure energy, which travels via different vibrations. But nevertheless we know they exist, as we have the direct experience of the phone ringing and Uncle Bob speaking to us from the other end. All we have to do is raise the bars of our intuitive power and embark on the journey that awaits us.

So let’s start on this extraordinary adventure together. For me it was triggered, as I said earlier, by a book . . .
