Here are Tarot messages for each zodiac sign for the month of December. These apply not just to your Sun sign but also to your Moon and Rising signs. These are general guidance messages and may not resonate with everyone. Take what resonates and leave the rest. Have fun reading them, and if you do come across similar situations in life during the course of the month, apply the guidance included in these messages.

Aries

Ariens, December is a month of renewal, de-cluttering, and clearing the old to make way for the new. Some areas of your life may undergo a shift which at first may seem chaotic. But through this chaos comes order, so don’t resist. Misunderstandings may arise with those around you, so be clear about what you say and mean. Competition surrounds you. But if you recognize and know how to channel your strength, you will overcome all obstacles. Be more expressive in your relationships. Sometimes words have to be backed up with action. Wonderful moments in luxurious settings are likely to keep you mesmerized. Your relationships will gain more strength this month. An important epiphany will hit you at work. You will find more clarity and a sense of direction about your purpose. You will also need to be mentally active in order to give your best to work. A new opportunity is likely to come your way, Ariens, and it will bring the much-needed mental stimulation you have been waiting for. Stay balanced and practice moderation when it comes to your health and well-being. Healing is underway. Be patient with the recovery you are expecting.

Taurus

Do you believe in magic, Taureans? Whether you do or not, magical moments await you this month. You will feel supported by the cosmos and your intuition will communicate more strongly with you. Pay heed and do not brush off the inner wisdom that seeks you out. It is also important to not let your emotions overwhelm you. Decisions are best made weighing in the facts and by staying practical. Apply logic and attain emotional mastery. Love can seek you out through social events and celebrations. If you are single and ready to mingle, show up at places where you are likely to meet new people. Engagements and wedding bells are also in the air for some of you. Keep your relationships exciting by going out and doing different things together. If you are already in an established relationship, giving your partner some space and connecting with your friends may just be the ticket this month. Some of you may feel demotivated and disconnected at work. You may be searching for more inspiration or perhaps, looking for something new and exciting that can stimulate you. Opportunities will come by, Taureans. Projects will be offered. Be open to exploring all your options, even if they don’t look too promising on the surface. Avoid overworking, and take a break to recharge from time to time. Important information concerning your well-being will come to light. This is a wake-up call. Take good care of yourself and pay attention to the red flags. Recovery is also on the cards for many of you who have been through a challenging time with your health.

Gemini

Geminians, a stressful situation is seen coming to an end this month and with this end comes a new beginning. Do not mourn for what is gone; instead get excited because new horizons await you. This is an excellent month to travel to far and away places. Opportunities will seek you out, so just be willing to accept and explore. Singles, it is best to focus your energy on yourself this month. Nurture and nourish your precious selves. Enjoy your independence and fall in love with yourself. Some of you may meet a very practical, down-to-earth person as well. Stay grounded. Relationships in general will require care and support in order to flourish. At work, all may not seem well. You may be feeling uncertain about your path. Don’t rush into decision-making. Trust your intuition. This is not the month to take risks and place your complete faith in others. Gossips and lies may create tension, so stay extra cautious. When it comes to your health and well-being, avoid overindulgence. Treat your body with care and compassion. Watch out for emotional eating and excessive consumption of alcohol.

Cancer

Being a water sign ruled by the Moon, you are naturally sensitive and attuned to the Lunar cycles, Cancerians. In December, capitalize on these lunar cycles to manifest your dreams. Set new intentions for the New Moon and release what you no longer need in life during the Full Moon. Notice how your energy shifts from time to time and take good care of it. There will be days when rest and withdrawal will be important for you. Do not ignore this need. Your focus should be directed toward the future and not the past. There is a dream calling out to you this month. Follow the whispers of your heart. Things are moving quickly in personal life and relationships this month. Communication will be more swift and opportunities will come out of nowhere. Some of you may travel for love or with your beloved. Spice up your sex life. Someone new may sweep you off your feet. But don’t expect commitment, settling down, and planning for the future just yet. Go with the flow and have fun. When it comes to career and work, don’t let your emotions do the talking, Cancerians. Be firm and vocal about your needs. Take charge. You may come across someone in a position of authority who expects nothing but the best and can be a bit demanding. The only way to please this person is by delivering the results. Make sure you don’t do a choppy job and use your intelligence to solve problems, effectively. You will finally start seeing the results of the efforts you have put into your health and well-being. That diet plan or the exercise program will start showing you positive signs, if you have followed the rules, painstakingly. Be a little patient when enrolling in new programs or starting a new treatment. Changes don’t always happen overnight.

Leo

December’s energy offers you plenty of creative stimulation. You will have loads of new ideas and creative urges that can’t wait to be given form. Use this energy wisely and create something beautiful and unique. A new emotional beginning is also in the cards for you. This could show up as a new friendship, a proposal, wedding, the birth of a child, a new offer, etc. Do not dismiss the intuitive nudges you receive, Leos, for they will carry the messages and guidance you are seeking. Your confidence and charisma will win you the admiration of many in personal affairs. Stay positive and own your power. If you are single, be ready to be swept by proposals and date night invites. Your social life will put you in the limelight. Know that you deserve nothing but the best and that’s what you will get. Established relationships, too, can use some warmth and affection. Don’t just be a lover but also a friend to your partner and find ways to make your love life exciting. A stressful situation is coming to an end at work, Leos, and you can finally heave a sigh of relief. The change may not be what you expected, but at least you don’t have to suffer and struggle anymore. You will gain clarity on a matter. If things have been tough, know that new beginnings are very much on the horizon, even if it doesn’t seem like it right now. Let go of the old first and stay optimistic. Also, don’t put blind faith in others at work. Stick to tried and tested methods where health and well-being are concerned. Overindulgence may lead to complications later on. Cut down on stuff that can be bad for your health. Make exercise an important part of your routine and do not succumb to laziness.

Virgo

Virgos, you are called the perfectionists of the zodiac. But there are times when one has to be flexible and bend rules where necessary. Your stubbornness can create many hindrances for you this month, so be open to trying out new methods and techniques where old ones are no longer of use. Helpful advice may come from a professional or a wise person. Do not shy away from asking for help and guidance. This is an excellent month for learning a new craft, enrolling in a course, or picking up a new subject to gain more knowledge. A news of victory is also on the cards for you. Some of you may have the chance to go on a world tour or an exotic new destination on the map with your beloved. Even if you are single, travel and explore new places. You never know how much fun you can end up having or whom you might meet. Some relationships are undergoing a big change this month, for the highest good. Be open to embracing this change and welcome the new chapter that awaits you. To some, this may mean reaching a new milestone in the relationship. Or, it could also mean moving onto something better and new. You may have a restricted view of yourself and your potential when it comes to work. It is time to start thinking outside the box and tap into your potential. You are ambitious and there is a way to make your dreams come true — only if you free yourself from all the limitations that you are placing on yourself. Attain freedom on a mental level first and you will soon know how to proceed and bring about the desired change on the physical and material level as well. Explore alternative healing techniques. Your emotions may affect your well-being and make you prone to mood swings and even a mild sense of depression. Get help if necessary or learn to manage your emotions well. Hormonal changes could affect your health as well. Be more compassionate toward yourself.

Libra

Librans, this is a time of doing, not just dreaming. There is a danger of getting caught up in daydreaming and maybe even buying into illusory thinking. An important decision has to be made this month and the fear of making the wrong choice may paralyze you. If you don’t know what is the right choice for you, make a list of the pros and cons of each choice and look beyond the surface. Do not waste too much time daydreaming. If you are looking for love, push yourself out of your comfort zone and explore all possibilities. This may include travelling, taking up a new hobby, and so on. Look beyond your immediate environment and expand your horizons. Struggling relationships could use a third party intervention or a mediator to bring help. Travel with your loved one is also on the cards. At work, a situation could make you feel trapped this month. Don’t let fear get to you. Find effective ways of dealing with this situation. Some of you may need to question your current path. It is possible that you are stuck in a stressful or an unhappy job just for the money. If yes, ask yourself if this job is worth the bargain. Explore your options. Avoid greed and obsession, as they will lead to the road of unhappiness in the long run. Too much stress could lead to anxiety or other stress-related issues when it comes to health and well-being. You may also be more accident- or illness-prone. Take all the necessary precautions for your safety and well-being. Watch your temper.

Scorpio

Blessings and gifts are on their way into your life this month, Scorpio. You may the recipient of someone else’s generosity. Or, you may be feeling charitable this month. Be willing to share your goodness with others in the form of financial gifts or any other help that you can offer. If you are caught up in a difficult situation, help will find its way to you, unexpectedly. Be careful to whom you loan your money. Caution is advised in personal affairs, as someone may not be acting from an honest place. Do not put too much trust in others, especially if you have your doubts about them. Singles, be careful around people who seem too good to be true. Lower your expectations, as others may not always fulfill the promises they make. At work, do not challenge or question the status quo. Instead, learn to fit in and accept the traditional ways of doing things. If you want to progress, you may need to align yourself with those in a position of authority. Build your network and form strategic alliances, as this will help you in your career. Listen to the advice given by a mentor. Rest and rejuvenation are highly recommended for you this month, Scorpios. Do not wait until you reach a point of burnout. Find effective ways to deal with stress. A break or a retreat could do you a world of good.

Sagittarius

You will mostly feel drawn toward intellectual pursuits in December, Sagittarians. The focus will be on learning and relying on your knowledge to navigate through the month. A detached view will help you see things clearly and make the best decisions, so don’t be swayed by emotions. A highly intellectual, sharp and knowledgeable person may play an important role in your life. This person can aid you in learning something, but don’t expect them to be sympathetic. Relationships will need work this month, Sagittarians. Do not expect them to work out on their own. Do what is necessary to show the ones you love that you care. If you are going through a rough patch, know that you can still salvage your relationship if both parties are willing to put in the efforts. Singles, your focus may be on work and not romance this month. If you want to spice up your love life, find time for love and make date night plans. Work could be exhausting in December, Sagittarians. Prioritize and cut away distractions to make the most of your time and finish the tasks on your to-do list. Do not overburden yourself, else you may be in for a burnout. Take a break and de-stress from time to time. Avoid taking on more than you can handle and do not hesitate to ask for help if you cannot handle things on your own. Your health also needs attention, Sagittarians. Most of the exhaustion could come from work, and brief periods of illnesses may be seen this month. Seek medical attention when necessary.

Capricorn

The last month of the year brings the energy of completion into play, Capricorns. It is time to let the past go by tying in all loose ends and preparing for a new cycle of beginning and growth. You will notice that situations will resolve on their own or sometimes, an ending will be inevitable. Embrace this ending. Your connection with people from around the world is strong this month and can be used for your benefit. Travel is very much on your cards, especially to a new destination, perhaps even overseas.

Relationships and personal affairs may not be easy this month. Challenges may create a sense of detachment between you and your partner. Financial matters may create tension in established relationships as well. Be more compassionate towards each other. Singles, this may not be the month to find your lucky guy or gal. Do not overspend on dates. This is an important month for work matters, Capricorn. You will gain more understanding of your current path and will know whether to continue on the same one or switch. Some of you may feel drawn to a new line of work as well. You will also get rewarded for your efforts this month. You are likely to achieve a deeper understanding of your purpose. Self-care and nurturing are highly recommended this month for you, Capricorns. Ask your body what nourishment it needs and do things that make you feel good on a mind, body, and soul level. This is a fertile period and news of pregnancy is on the cards for some of you. Spend more time outdoors.

Aquarius 

Aquarians, mental blocks may be keeping you stuck in a situation. Try to change your perspective and be willing to explore your options. Where there is a will, there is indeed a way. You also need to work on changing your perceptions about yourself. You have a great deal of energy and potential to take your dreams further, but negative thoughts about yourself may be keeping you from making any progress. Do not feel victimized. Love may seek you out through work. You may find a connection with someone you work with or someone you meet in a professional setting. In established relationships, it is possible that you and your partner may be dealing with a practical situation. As long as you team up and work things out, this will not only strengthen your relationship but also help you overcome the minor obstacles in it. Avoid taking shortcuts at work or dealing with a situation in an underhanded manner, as the consequences will not be pleasant. Work smart but don’t do a choppy job. Others may have hidden agendas, so be wary of putting blind faith in people you work with. Keep your integrity intact. You are likely to feel more energetic this month, Aquarians. Put this energy to good use. Start a new health regime, if you are feeling motivated.

Pisces

Many projects will successfully conclude this month, Pisces. This naturally puts you in a relaxed and blissful state of mind. Take it easy and indulge yourself a little. If security and stability was a problem in the past, you will feel a lot more balanced this month. Your hard work will pay off. Treat yourself to something nice and special and enjoy the fruits of your labour. It is okay to slow down the pace of life sometimes. If you have not yet reached your goal, keep at it. You are close to the finish line. Selfish and hidden agendas could create unpleasant experiences in personal life. Be careful who you trust in matters of the heart, Pisces. If you want to leave someone or escape a situation, make sure you communicate your feelings honestly and don’t do things in an underhanded manner. If someone seems too good to be true, they are. Do not buy into persuasive talks. You are making good progress at work and word of your skills is likely to spread far and wide, bringing you appreciation and more business. Do not let initial success get to your head, though. Continue excelling at what you do and you will go places. This is a good month for business, and many will seek you out for your services. A promotion may also be in line for many. When it comes to health and well-being, do not be impulsive. Take a steady and cautious approach. Recovery may be slow but that does not mean progress is not happening. Be patient. Continue following your routine and stay focused.

Dark Jewels: Mining The Gifts Of 8 Difficult Emotions

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Our difficult emotions are not just unpleasant experiences. They have hidden gifts, including the capacity to transform our lives into more joy and wholeness. They impart wisdom and compassion we can't find living on, or fearfully clinging to, the su

  • Reflect On:

    Which emotions do you have trouble feeling or accepting in yourself and others? These might be the frontiers you need to embrace and enter to more fully embody your life.

Compassion is not a relationship between the healer and the wounded. It is a relationship between equals. Only when we know our own darkness well can we be present with the darkness of others. Compassion becomes real when we recognize our shared humanity.

—Pema Chodron

Unless we look into and skillfully navigate our dark sides, we can’t become our fullest selves. Consequently, we can’t truly love ourselves and the world as much as we are capable. Following Pema Chodron’s reasoning: if we cannot bear our own pain, how can we bear the pain of others? If we are afraid of our own suffering, how can we genuinely stand with another in theirs and thereby be the friend possible?

Below I list eight natural, universal emotions that at first blush we might feel like avoiding. This list is a kind of treasure hunt, revealing what we get to discover when we welcome and allow these at first uncomfortable feelings to be, and eventually change us from our depths on up through our heart and mind. For this growth to happen, we first have to be honest with ourselves—to be aware of what we are feeling and able to name it. Then we can embrace the feelings and go from there.

Notice how each “negative” emotion mentioned below informs us of our care. To welcome and work with our shadow emotions enables us to care more. Caring also requires sensitivity. So, if we have a sensitive heart, we will likely feel all these difficult emotions in good measure. And, when we learn how to intimately, courageously and patiently dance with them, they give us more heart and more inner power. Each emotion is therefore a portal to fulfill our capacity for greater love—love for ourselves, for those we love, and the Earth itself.

Difficult Emotion #1: Guilt

Guilt is usually a signal that we have acted, or might act, inappropriately. Guilt brings us back to our values, morality, and care for one another. Guilt shows us where we have acted poorly and can do better. Guilt keeps us accountable to one another. Guilt (that we have done wrong) need not become shame (that we are wrong or bad). We can harvest the lesson in our guilt (oftentimes along with our remorse), make amends, and forgive ourselves. For example, if I feel guilty that I wasn’t fully honest with you and this cost you, I might make an amend and confess my shortcoming.

Sitting with guilt allows the sting of wrongdoing to impress a lesson upon us, or to change our hearts for the long term. Guilt need not be self-hatred, self-condemnation, or endless regret. It can be a mature reckoning and opportunity for more integrity. Note, guilt can also be a symptom of depression and OCD, in which case it’s best to notice it and not ruminate on it or try to mine it for wisdom.

Difficult Emotion #2: Anger or Rage

Almost every instance of anger arises because something we treasure has been threatened or taken away. It shows us what we care about and how we feel violated. Anger is the smoke alerting us to the fire of where we have been hurt. Anger shows us where our boundaries are, and welcoming the energy of anger helps us set boundaries. Anger protects what we love and shows us how much we care and value what is rightfully ours, or what is another’s. In the face of abuse, for example, anger or even rage, is an appropriate response. It protects our vulnerability.

Sitting with anger, without acting it out violently (unless appropriate in the moment to set a strong boundary) empowers our functional ego, or sense of self. It’s good, however, to make sure we get the facts straight before we let our anger take over, so we are not acting out on false assumption. With all this said, I find anger one of the less remunerative emotions to perpetuate. I try to get the lesson, hear the message from anger, then try to skillfully express, discharge, or let it go (not suppress or perpetuate it in thought and heart) as soon as possible. In excess, anger ages, wears us down, and burns bridges of support. At the same time, not embracing and discharging anger in healthy ways can sabotage and age us even more quickly.

Difficult Emotion #3: Fear

There is helpful and unhelpful fear. Helpful fear shows us our limits and where our limits for self-protection are, and therefore, what we care about. Fear of heights, or walking at the edge of a cliff, help us be careful so we don’t hurt ourselves. This is helpful fear. We all have limits, and healthy fear tells us when to stop and what to avoid, or to be careful in proceeding. Sitting with helpful fear shows us how to take care of ourselves and others, how to avoid harm. Unhelpful fear should be confronted, skillfully, and in good timing, so it doesn’t prevent us from achieving our goals. Asking that someone special out on a date or taking the steps to follow through on a dream, despite the fear, is confronting unhelpful fear and not letting it hold us back. We can’t help feeling unhelpful fear, and sometimes rather than try not to feel fear, the way to conquer it is simply to “Feel the fear and do it anyway.”

Difficult Emotion #4: Remorse

Remorse is related to guilt. It signals us that we have made a mistake, caused harm, or could have done better. Remorse arises because we care; otherwise we wouldn’t care how our actions affect others. Sitting with remorse allows it to teach us a heartfelt lesson. The remorse we feel because we didn’t take the time to review the pesticide-impact report accurately, or because we didn’t make the call that would have prevented a disaster, can all be good medicine. It’s important to allow remorse and not excessively beat ourselves up about it, which also gives us the opportunity to practice forgiveness. Remorse is tinged with sadness, which arises from caring, which is why it’s a good sign to feel remorse; it means we have a heart, care about life, and have a moral compass.

Difficult Emotion #5: Despair

Despair is tough and humbling. Sometimes we can’t help but despair. Despair has an element of giving up, and this total or partial surrender can bolster our capacity for letting go of unnecessary control. When we do, we can find inner strength we didn’t know we had, as well as outside support in those who come to our aid. Inside despair is the kernel of faith. Despair can be a path to what we might call God or Spirit, which is often our own resiliency and trust that things will somehow work out when we have given up, or feel like we have nothing left.

It’s important to have support and to self-motivate when appropriate so that despair does not unnecessarily turn to depression and self-harm. Falling apart in the arms of despair can be a powerful way to contact our depths and find that invisible inner fortitude. This is best done with people who can stand by us, hold us, and keep our heads above water, if indeed we are afraid of figuratively drowning. When we have support and can weather its storm, despair also reveals what we care about and who unconditionally cares for us.

Difficult Emotion #6: Worry or Anxiety

Worry can be unrealistic or realistic, and shades of both, just like fear. Noticing what we worry about can show us what we care about; otherwise, why would we bother to worry? Some are worrywarts, in which case it’s helpful to try not to worry as much, while preserving the kernel of care in worry. Sometimes it’s appropriate to act in order to reduce worry. If I’m worrying about having left the gate open, getting up and closing it abets my worry. Other times, when our worry is more unrealistic, we don’t need to act as much as we need to bring our minds back into balance. Sitting with realistic worry shows us what we need to do to protect ourselves and others, even if it’s as simple as closing the gate or moving a glass from the edge of the table. Worry brings out the care in our hearts or our fear of harm. Controlling negative and anxious thinking, getting the facts straight, and breathing deeply all help keep worry from becoming exaggerated, unrealistic, and getting the best of us. Worry is our hearts thinking out loud about what we care for.

Difficult Emotion #7: Grief

Grief is the price we pay for the privilege of love. Yet, it’s only a temporary cost, for I consider grief the most soul-making of the emotions. Grief takes us down into ourselves;  it is the polisher of our souls. Grief dissolves our pain, which making it invaluable for living as a sustainable person. For if we don’t clear our hearts of pain, the tendency is to poison the world and others with the hurt we didn’t allow it to dissolve. Within grief is the blossom of rebirth from suffering and loss. The more we grieve, the more we can love; and the more we love, the more we feel the sting of loss. To deny grief is to deny love. While most of us don’t want to feel the drag, dullness, and despair of grief, it is a natural and healthy reaction to loss. Grief is a symbol of our love and when we can welcome it, we give our hearts the opportunity to break and grow as wide as the world. Grief work is an aspect of grief that I describe as  intentionally entering our past pain, especially that from childhood, that has not been resolved. This work frees our lives from the inside out as nothing else can. Grief is merely the other side of feel-good love and is always in fluid communication with it.

Difficult Emotion #8: Envy or Jealousy

Envy, as the desire for what someone else has, points to our fulfillment. It brings out our longing and desire and shows us what we want and what we can work for to make our lives better or more enjoyable. Of course, it’s important to make sure that what we are envious of is something we truly want and value, and not just an excuse to hate on someone. Sometimes we feel a heavy dose of envy because we don’t want to work for the success another has. Yet, once we admit our admiration for someone else’s success or freedom, we can use that inspiration to work to acquire what we envy, and admire our own progress and achievements.

Jealousy, which is feeling threatened that what we cherish will be taken away or injured, is often accompanied by anger. In wanting to possess, jealousy shows us what we value, what we want to protect, what we would feel pain in losing. The element of anger, or even worry, in jealousy helps us set boundaries and limits to protect what we want and care about. Marriage, or committing to monogamy, are examples.

The Takeaway

I hope this deeper glimpse into difficult emotions allows you to lean into and appreciate them for their uncommon gifts and not throw out their wisdom with the bathwater of knee-jerk reaction of temporary discomfort. Yes, they can be difficult and bring us down, but when we wisely work with them, and for long enough, they release their nectar, transform us into better and kinder people, and initiate us to our shared humanity. Their benevolent darkness gifts us depth and beauty we can’t otherwise find in the sunny side of life alone.

50 Years of Near Death Experience Research Suggests That The “Soul” Is Real

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    50 years of research conducted by scientists into Near Death Experiences is summarized below. The research shows that consciousness, or the soul, or something continues to have awareness after "death."

  • Reflect On:

    Evidence of sensitive and touchy topics in science have always been dismissed and ridiculed. Why, no matter how strong the evidence, are discoveries ridiculed or swept under the rug? Are our minds that closed?

Nikola Tesla once said that, “The day science begins to study non-physical phenomena, it will make more progress in one decade than in all the previous centuries of its existence.”

Fast forward to today, and we now have hundreds of notable world-renowned scientists studying “non-material” science. Science the birth of quantum mechanics, the mysteries of consciousness have been at the forefront of scientific study, and we now know today that consciousness plays a crucial part, in several different ways, when it comes to perceiving what we call our physical material world.

Most of our founding fathers of science, especially physics, were all spiritual mystics.  Max Plack, a physicist who originated quantum theory, regarded consciousness as “fundamental,” and matter as “derivative from consciousness.” He said that “we cannot get behind consciousness. Everything that we talk about, everything that we regard as existing, postulates consciousness.” 

Eugene Wigner, a physicist and mathematician told the world that “it was not possible to formulate the laws of quantum mechanics in a fully consistent way without reference to consciousness.”

With all of this being said, there is still a resistance to the new discoveries that non-material science is making, especially when it comes to topics on the umbrella of parapsychology, like telepathy, remote viewing (which was used by the US government for intelligence purposes for 25 years), for example, near death experiences (NDE’s) and much more.

Here is a video of CIA contracted Physicist Russel Targ sharing everything he knows about ESP.

“Despite the unrivalled empirical success of quantum theory, the very suggestion that it may be literally true as a description of nature is still greeted with cynicism, incomprehension and even anger.” 

– (T. Folger, “Quantum Shmantum”; Discover 22:37-43, 2001)

This is, again, perhaps why so many scientists are coming together to create awareness about this and emphasize some very important points about non-material science.

You can read more, in detail, about that here.

Near Death Experiences (NDE’s) are one area of study under parapsychology and non-material science.  What happens when we die? Does some aspect of us survive death? Some non-material aspect, like consciousness, for example?  Does consciousness originate in the brain, or is it a receiver of it?

It’s been the topic of discussion in philosophy and theology for years, and in the 20th century it has become the subject of scientific research. One of the people responsible for starting this initiative was Ian Stevenson, who, as the Chair of University of Virginia’s Department of Psychiatry, in 1967, created a research unit within the department to study if anything of the human personality survives after death.

His research investigated multiple hundreds of children who claimed to recall past lives and there are many examples. These children are able to give remarkable details about their past lives, and in some cases include describing how they died, locating past family members of who they used to be that are still living, and more details that would otherwise be impossible to describe.

You can see some specific examples in an article we’ve previously published, linked below:

6 Extraordinary Cases of Kids Who Remember Their Past Lives 

Here is a video of Dr. Bruce Greyson speaking at a conference that was held by the United Nations. He is considered to be one of the “fathers” of near death studies. He is Professor Emeritus of Psychiatry and Neuro-behavioral Science at UVA. In the video he describes documented cases of individuals who were clinically dead (showing no brain activity), but observing everything that was happening to them on the medical table below at the same time. He describes how there have been many instances of this – where individuals are able to describe things that should have been impossible to describe.

Another significant statement by Dr. Greyson posits that this type of study has been discouraged due to our tendency to view science as completely materialistic. Seeing is believing, so to speak, in the scientific community. It’s unfortunate that just because we cannot explain something through materialistic means, it must be instantly discredited. The simple fact that “consciousness” itself is a non-physical “thing” is troubling for some scientists to comprehend, and as a result of it being non material, they believe it cannot be studied by science.

To access some of the published research in this area, you can refer to this article.

Below is a lecture that was filmed at the UVA by the medical department. It features Jim B. Tucker Bruce Greyson Edward F. Kelly J. Kim Penberthy, from the Division of Perceptual Studies.

Large studies have shown that a significant amount of people who have been clinically dead, experience some type of ‘awareness’ during that time. For example, one patient – a 57-year-old man at the time, despite being pronounced “dead” and completely unconscious, with no detectable biological activity going on, recalled watching the entire process of his resuscitation.

On a side note, Certified Master Hypnotherapist Michael Newton developed a technique to regress his clients back in time to recall memories from their past lives. During this process he stumbled upon a discovery of enormous proportions. He was able to bring the souls back to the place where they go before their next life — a life between lives. Out of 7,000 regressions, a large majority had eerily similar recollections of a place that many of them called “home.”

The proofs for the existence of worlds beyond this one go well past this topic and this article, and this cited research.

A New Groundbreaking Documentary About Post-Materialist Science

It’s interesting because as far back as 1999, statistics professor Jessica Utts at UC Irvine, published a paper showing that parapsychological experiments have produced much stronger results than those showing a daily dose of aspirin helping to prevent heart attacks. Utts also showed that these results are much stronger than the research behind various drugs like antiplatelets, for example.

This new film, called Expanding Reality  can be purchased  here.

“Expanding Reality is about the emerging postmaterialist paradigm and the next great scientific revolution. Why is it important? Because this paradigm has far-reaching implications. For instance, it re-enchants the world and profoundly alters the vision we have of ourselves, giving us back our dignity and power as human beings. The postmaterialist paradigm also fosters positive values such as compassion, respect, care, love, and peace, because it makes us realize that the boundaries between self and others are permeable. In doing so, this paradigm promotes an awareness of the deep interconnection between ourselves and Nature at large. In that sense, the model of reality associated with the postmaterialist paradigm may help humanity to create a sustainable civilization and to blossom.” – Mario Beauregard, PhD, from the University of Arizona

These people have exhausted their own resources in order to make Expanding Reality for the world, show your support by purchasing the movie HERE. You won’t be disappointed.

The Takeaway

The takeaway here is to recognize the evidence existing suggesting the soul, or consciousness, or some type of awareness exists after death. Now, what consciousness encompasses, might be different from the soul, etc, but those are much deeper discussions to be had.

When will science recognize something that’s clearly observable given the witness testimony and similarity of the experiences, and that phenomena that can’t be explained can still be real?

The parameters of modern day science really prevents us from moving forward, which is why we are seeing such a large growth in non-material science, the next step after quantum physics.

If You Do One Thing At Christmas Make It This: Acts Of Kindness

Published

on

Gentleness and kindness will make our homes a paradise upon earth. C. A. Bartol

As we enter into the ‘silly season’ I felt inspired to write about what I wish Christmas could mean for everyone.

In a world where we have so much focus on material goods, (and never is this more obvious than at Christmas time)  I think its time to touch on something that is far more important.

And that is, have you ever thought about what exactly the true meaning of Christmas might be? What do you think it is?  Being with family and friends? Eating a lot of good food or going away somewhere nice?  Yes it can be all of that, but for me, it is more about giving.

Not the giving of expensive presents to family members and friends, but instead, giving to those that need it most.

Yes, I know that is a cliche, but its a valid one, and it is so very important right now.

Only We Will Make The Changes Needed

Looking at the state of the world, with all of it’s chaos, more and more people are suffering.  Homelessness is reaching unprecedented levels in many ‘first world’ countries, there are more than 114,000 people living on the streets alone in California (with likely even more since those terrifying fires a few weeks ago), and in the UK, it has recently been reported that 1 in 200 people are homeless.   Hungary have recently declared that homelessness is a crime.

We are countries with access to enormous wealth, yet our governments are cutting funding for important programs to look after our most vulnerable people.

A great man shows his greatness by the way he treats little men. Thomas Carlyle

Seeing that this has become a global problem, and one that is not improving,  it has become clearer to me, that only WE can really make the differences needed now.  It truly sits on our shoulders as individuals to make more of a conscious effort to help those around us.

We have to stop waiting for others to sweep in and make these changes, we have to help do it ourselves.

I know, many may say ‘I am struggling myself to survive’ or ‘ I don’t have any spare money’, but kindness to others can be totally free.

For inspiration, please watch this beautiful and touching clip below that really lets you feel the power of kindness.  I am sure that even by watching this clip, many of you will be inspired now to go and do something for someone in need.  I was inspired to write this article after viewing this clip and I know it will create a domino effect!

You know, it’s not actually that hard to be kind.  You just have to have your mind ready to see an opportunity for being helpful to someone else.

Being kind to others, is actually a gift to yourself, the joy you feel in your heart when you do something nice and thoughtful for others, is a truly amazing feeling. It literally gives your heart a big happy bursting feeling. It feels like real love.

Science Shows Kindness Is Good For You

There actually is scientific evidence that being kind is very good for your own health, and for the other people who experience your kindness.  Kindness can also create a domino effect, and your act alone could end up helping many people, perhaps hundreds of event thousands.

Giving beats any short lived feeling you get from buying something material when you know that you have made a difference to someone else, especially when it helps them when they are at their lowest point.

If I have spare change in my bag, I do try and give to homeless people, (or instead buy them a meal) and despite that some will say ‘we shouldn’t encourage it’ I feel this is very unfair, as we never know their back story and how they ended up on the streets.

I think many of us turn our backs on them (like I used to) because if we really thought about it, we are probably petrified that we could end up like that.  For this reason alone, if you can, give, because would you not hope that people would help you if you were in the same position?

A little thought and a little kindness are often worth more than a great deal of money. John Ruskin

Kindness unites people like nothing else can and it is what we desperately need to bring our fractured societies back together.   With so much division between us now, what can heal this is our acts of kindness.

Everyone Matters

Every single person wants to feel that they matter, it’s embedded into our consciousness.  When a stranger does something kind for someone they don’t know it is even more special, because it was their way of saying ‘I see you, I don’t know you, but I care and you matter to me’

I have had many people be kind to me, in times of severe depression, where I nearly ended my life, I always had people show me that I mattered to them and not to give up.

I know this is what got me through those very dark times.  Their acts of kindness, made me realise I wasn’t worthless or truly alone, which brought me to be here today.

I am very lucky now to have this opportunity here at Collective Evolution to now be able to share important things with millions of readers around the world.

Who Will Benefit From Your Own Ripple Effects?

What if no one had of been kind to me when I was so low and in a desperate place? Would I not be here today? I really believe no, that I wouldn’t be.  We all are capable of creating positive ripple effects that can literally go around the world.

This is the power we all have, that you have, to impact someone else’s life positively, and maybe even many other peoples lives.

No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted. Aesop

Kindness comes in so many forms, and we are all capable of doing many of them.  You just have to open your heart and want to make the effort to do it.

I hope this Christmas you experience kindness in action, and could maybe even consider making a pact to continue this long after the festive season is over.

Beginning today, treat everyone you meet as if they were going to be dead by midnight. Extend to them all the care, kindness and understanding you can muster, and do it with no thought of any reward. Your life will never be the same again. Og Mandino
