Anthony Peake Consciousness and Perception #64

Prolific Author Anthony Peake
Anthony Peake, author of Opening the Doors of Perception

On March 13,2018 Kate Valentine and Fahrusha were very happy to welcome Anthony Peake, prolific author on the subject of consciousness, who has written nine widely acclaimed books on various aspects of non-physical realities (or are they?), time and consciousness and perception.  We speak with him primarily about his book Opening the Doors of Consciousness, the title of which is based on the Aldous Huxley (1894-1963) book The Doors of Perception the title of which in turn comes from a poem by William Blake (1757-1827). It brings to mind the image of great thinkers through time standing on the shoulders of the one before and building upon knowledge.

If the doors of perception were cleansed everything would appear to man as it is, infinite. ~William Blake

We also touch upon two of his other books Time and the Rose Garden: Encountering the Magical in the life and works of J.B. Priestley and A Life of Philip K Dick: The Man Who Remembered the Future. Both Priestley and Dick explored the subjects of time and consciousness in an unorthodox and thought provoking manner.

We discuss the difficulties of exploring consciousness anomalies using the paradigm of the materialistic scientific method. Does substantial first person experience data equal proof? Are we just meat puppets with accidental biological consciousness or are we part of an infinite consciousness which is eternal? Is reality holographic and are we living in a simulation? Peake explains this through the vocabulary of Gnosticism.

How can we break through the doors of perception? Humans can experience other realities through dreams, schizophrenia, psychotropic drugs and other processes. Are these realities any less real than 4-D? Only in the sense that in 4-D we can have the perception of consensus with other humans. This is called “consensual reality” and on a certain level unprovable due to the fact that individuals see the same event very differently.

I shall close this recap of the podcast with a quote from Aldous Huxley that I find germane to our subject: Maybe this world is another planet’s hell.

 

Dr. Julie Beischel Medium Research #63

Julie Beischel.Ph.D.of the Windbridge Research Center in Arizona

On February 27, 2018 Fahrusha and Kate Valentine were happy to welcome Dr. Julie Beischel to “Shattered Reality Podcast”. She received her doctorate in Pharmacology and Toxicology with a minor in Microbiology and Immunology from the University of Arizona in 2003.  She is the co-founder and Director of Research at the Windbridge Institute for Applied Research in Human Potential and is at the forefront of modern studies into mediumship. Currently, part of the Institute has spun off into the Windbridge Research Center, whose mission is to ease suffering around dying, death, and what comes next, by performing rigorous scientific research and sharing the results and other customized content with practitioners, clinicians, scientists, and the general public.

Survival of consciousness is the key element in understanding mediumship. In this model the brain is seen to be akin to a radio receiver and not the seat of consciousness. The mind or the consciousness is thought to be non-local and exists beyond the death of the body. Mediums are psychics that concentrate on obtaining information about the deceased. American mediums are 90% female. In Dr. Beischel’s research, the mediums that were tested are blinded to any knowledge of the deceased person or the sitter beyond the first name of the deceased. The results of the experiments were all statistically significant in favor of the validity of mediumship. In parapsychology there is a classic debate regarding where the mediumistic information might be coming from. Does it come from so-called “super-psi” (the pool of information available through psychic functioning), or from a deceased person’s after death consciousness? Because I (Fahrusha) do not like binary choices, I also posited that some information might come from non-human disembodied entities, not constricted by space and time.  We discussed the relationship of auto-immune diseases to being a medium or a psychic, versus the relationship of childhood abuse or trauma to disease in general.

Beischel has written several very accessible e-books including From the Mouths of Mediums Vol.1 Experiencing Communication, Meaningful Messages: Making the Most of Your Mediumship Reading, and Among Mediums: A Scientist’s Quest for Answers.

Note: Tom Butler was our guest who spoke about EVP (Electronic Voice Production) in conjunction with messages from the deceased.

 

Lynne Kelly and The Memory Code #59

On December 5, 2017 LynneKelly, Ph.D., author of The Memory Code, joined Fahrusha and Kate Valentine on Shattered Reality Podcast to discuss memory devices used by oral cultures from the Stone Age to the present day. A native of Australia she was drawn into this study whilst working on her doctorate. What she discovered really surprised her.

Lynne started by researching Australian Aboriginal songlines. The elders of these groups knew all of the plants and animals from memory and often generations of lineage back into time. She discovered the mechanism by which they accomplished this feat. Much of the knowledge was restricted to elders or shamans. They would trek to areas that held significance and repeat dances and songs which held enormous amounts of related knowledge. There were also objects with inscrutable (to the uninitiated) marks which held mountains of knowledge and were portable. Preliterate cultures around the world used these memory palaces and memory devices and some cultures still do. Among those that still employ these devices are many Aboriginal groups in Australia, some African tribes as well as cultures in Oceana. Memory champions in the literate world have learned some of these techniques from writings of the ancient Greeks and use them to win contests today. The Memory Code gives us amazing insight into the mysteries of ancient places like Stonehenge,  the Nasca Lines and Easter Island to name a few.

Marty Rosenblatt Associative Remote Viewing #58

Marty Rosenblatt of the Applied Precognition Project

On November 14, 2017 Kate Valentine and Fahrusha welcomed Marty Rosenblatt to “Shattered Reality Podcast”. Marty is the founder of the Applied Precognition Project. The “Applied Precognition Project’s mission is to publicly explore, research and apply logic and intuition/emotion to predict future event outcomes. This enables participants to evolve personally while contributing to the elevation of global consciousness.” APP has several different groups of viewers who remotely view different sorts of future events that can generate money, such as the stock market or sports events. Associative Remote Viewing  usually has a binary approach wherein two very different photo scenes are used to represent an up or down or yes or no type outcome unrelated pictorially to the photos. The APP also has several other groups, including the “Sublime” group which focuses on remote viewing from the dream state co-ordinated by Nancy Smith, a friend of SRP.   

We spoke to Marty about his method of Associative Remote Viewing and related scientific concepts such as retro-causation and quantum entanglement. He spoke about the basic precepts of ARV. He is very conversant in interesting theories about consciousness and shared some with us.

We went on to speak about Hal Puthoff’s participation in Tom Delonge’s “To The Stars Academy” and other puzzling conundrums.

In the Listeners’ Corner we spoke of listener June Ponte’s art show and read a selection of the excellent children’s book Imagine If Thoughts Were Balloonsillustrated by listener Diane Waybright. This book demonstrates a very compassionate way to help children to choose their thoughts consciously.

John B. Alexander Reality Denied #57

Reality Denied: Firsthand Experiences  with Things that Can’t Happen -But Did by John B. Alexander, PhD

 

On October 24, 2017 Kate Valentine and Fahrusha were very pleased to welcome Dr. John B. Alexander back to Shattered Reality Podcast to discuss his new book Reality Denied, Firsthand Experiences with Things That Can’t Happen But Did. This book is an autobiography of many of Alexander’s paranormal experiences and extraordinary events. He is the author of a number of other books and articles including UFOs: Myths, Conspiracies and Realities and is the recipient of awards too numerous to mention.

We spoke about UFOs, trans-species communication with dolphins and unusual human skills including metal bending. The book is filled with fascinating and mind-bending experiences, exotic places visited, and extraordinary people met. But the takeaway is the lifelong quest and metamorphosis of a curious individual who began his career as an infantry private. He rose to Army colonel, received a PhD, became a non-lethal weapons expert and more recently delved into shamanism. John calls for more research into the nature of consciousness and these things that can’t happen but do. He fears that today’s paradigm of materialism keeps young scientists from researching the true nature of consciousness. He encourages more open-mindedness in science and hopes that young researchers will have the courage to explore areas beyond the soul-crushing confines of mechanistic materialism, as have many quantum physicists.

The Global Consciousness Project and Dr. Roger Nelson #54

Roger D. Nelson, PhD of the Global Consciousness Project and the PEAR Lab

On September 12, 2017 Kate Valentine and Fahrusha welcomed Dr. Roger D. Nelson of the Global Consciousness Project to “Shattered Reality Podcast”. Dr. Nelson has had a lifelong interest in the anomalies of human consciousness. He was Coordinator of Research at the Princeton Engineering Anomalies Research(PEAR) laboratory at Princeton University from 1980 to 2002.

The GCP or Global Consciousness Project is an international, multidisciplinary collaboration of scientists and engineers using Random Number Generators (RNGs) or Random Event Generators (REGs) to measure changes in the consciousness fields of groups of humans across the globe. At the time of this writing they have more than 15 years of random data in parallel sequences of synchronized 200-bit trials generated every second. That is truly amazing!

We discussed this and various related topics regarding what could be termed as micro-PK or small scale psychokinesis, including remote influencing. We included a couple of questions from a listener.

Please continue to send us your questions. Future guests are posted a few days ahead on our Facebook page.

At the end of the show, Fahrusha read an account from a friend of the show in England, Mr. A. who inadvertently took some photos of a mysterious noxious gas cloud descending upon an English Channel beach, Seven Sisters Cliffs, injuring walkers and sunbathers.

Fahrusha had written a blog piece featuring Dr. Nelson a few years ago which can be accessed here.

Brenda Dunne- the PEAR Lab and More #52

 

Brenda Dunne, Co-Author of Molecular Memoriesand lab manager at the PEAR Lab

On July 25th, 2017 Kate Valentine and Fahrusha welcomed Brenda Dunne lab manager of the PEAR Lab (Princeton Engineering Anomalies Research) to Shattered Reality Podcast. Fahrusha was lucky to meet Brenda Dunne and the late Dr. Robert Jahn at the SSE Symposium at Yale in June 2017. Brenda Dunne was given the Founder’s Award this year at the Symposium.

In this episode, Brenda talks in detail about the workings of the PEAR Lab, remote viewing, REGs (Random Event Generators) and RNGs (Random Number Generators), and what it is like working for more than 40 years with Dr. Robert Jahn. She also spoke of the beginnings of the SSE. Fahrusha and Kate Valentine are both Associate Members. Much of the Lab’s work with the REGs centered around getting a statistically significant result from the machine when a person or persons concentrated on doing so, or when an unusual and emotionally affecting event occurred in the environment, locally or worldwide.

Since the closing of the PEAR Lab, Dunne and Jahn  continued their work together at the International Consciousness Research Laboratories (ICRL). The ICRL publishes books on consciousness research. Together, Jahn and Dunne have written five books together including Molecular Memories(2015), Quirks of the Quantum Mind(2012), Consciousness and the Source of Reality(2011), Filters and Reflections: Perspectives on Reality with Zachary Jones (2009), and Margins of Reality(1987).

Fahrusha spoke about a precognitive dream she had about being in New Haven directly before the SSE Symposium.

Dr. Roger Nelson who was also closely associated with the PEAR Lab has also been a guest on “Shattered Reality Podcast”.

Brenda Dunne, M.S. holds degrees in psychology and the humanities from  Mundelein College in Chicago (1976), and a M.S. in Human Development from the  University of Chicago (1979).

Special! Alien Evolution #50

Co-host Fahrusha speaks about theories of alien evolution.

On May 20, 2017, Shattered Reality Podcast travelled to Pine Bush NY for the annual Pine Bush UFO Festival. On this special #50 episode, Fahrusha presents her thoughts on alien (or extraterrestrial) evolution. The fellow asking a few questions is David Biedny, who has been a guest on, and a friend of Shattered Reality Podcast. Kate Valentine can also be heard in the background. In short, Fahrusha asks, “If life is ubiquitous in the physical Universe, might it evolve in similar ways when similar elements are present?” Also implicit in this question is, “What defines life? Is it consciousness or respiration?” These may be impossible questions to answer definitively but they are fun and fascinating to ponder.

This is a short one, only 22 minutes long!

An article with the same theme can be found on Fahrusha’s blog here(Extraterrestrial Evolution).

Dr. Phillip Davidson and EVT #49

Dr. Phillip Davidson, originator of EVT

Kate Valentine and Fahrusha are pleased to welcome Dr. Phillip Davidson originator of Enhanced Visualization Technique to “Shattered Reality Podcast.” Phil started his professional life as an IT professional and spent a number of years at a high level job in Hong Kong. When he returned to the United Kingdom, he decided to retrain and earned a PhD in Psychology. He had a keen interest in the nature of consciousness and became a grief counselor. Coincidentally, like our last guest, Dr. Milton Wainwright, Phil hails from Sheffield, England. Fahrusha had the pleasure of meeting and conversing with Phil at a Monroe Institute’s Professional Division Seminar.

Over the years of being a grief counselor he noted how many individuals he interacted with were unable to move forward after the death of a loved one, particularly if the loved one was a child. Phil takes people from the waking state of consciousness to a place where they can access their unconscious. EVT is that process. Through EVT, Enhanced Visualization Technique, people are able to leave their bodies, meet their higher selves, and communicate with their departed loved ones. Loss of body image or proprioception is key to EVT. With EVT one can stay conscious during the entire experience of exploration of the unconsciousness.

Dr. Davidson specializes in using his technique with grieving people, but psychonaut explorers can greatly benefit from EVT as well. With EVT the grieving individual can learn to communicate with the departed loved one at will and without the services of a medium. We at “Shattered Reality Podcast” like the idea of this method because it appears to bridge the gap between a person’s unconscious and the One that is all individual consciousnesses. We ourselves have not sampled EVT but would certainly like to do so.

Dr. Phillip Davidson can be contacted via email at: phillip.davidson@btinternet.com

Surviving Death with Leslie Kean #47

Leslie Kean, author, Surviving Death

On  April 29, 2017 Kate Valentine and Fahrusha were proud to welcome Leslie Kean, author of both Surviving Death: A Journalist Investigates Evidence For An Afterlife and UFOs: Generals, Pilots and Government Officials Go on the Record, to Shattered Reality Podcast. We had a very lively discussion about the implications of a number of phenomena which suggest survival of individual consciousness after death.

Kean’s new book surveys parapsychological studies of a variety of classes of evidential experiences and introduces the reader to Kean’s own personal search for answers to the puzzle of whether consciousness survives death. There are chapters within the book authored by a variety of credible researchers who are tops in their fields. Topics include the past life experiences of young children, near death experiences (NDEs), end of life experiences, and experiences with mediums of various sorts.

If you have had an experience which suggests life after death such as communication from a recently deceased loved one or perhaps you yourself have had an NDE, and you would like to share that experience on the show, please use the contact form below:

Dr. Penny Sartori – the Near Death Experience #44

Dr. Penny Sartori, Author of The Wisdom of Near Death Experiences

On February 25, 2017 Kate Valentine and Fahrusha welcomed Dr. Penny Sartori, author of The Wisdom of Near Death Experiences. Dr. Sartori has been trained as a nurse and worked in the Intensive Therapy Unit at hospitals in Wales, UK for twenty years. During her time as a nurse she was fascinated by the death-bed experiences of patients and the near death experiences that some had. She was so intensely interested that she earned a Ph.D. in Near Death Studies. She teaches two original courses at Swansea University on the treatment of ITU patients and their spirituality.

In addition, Dr. Sartori has collected many accounts from people who have divulged their near death experiences to her. The experiences are varied but many have some attributes which are very similar. She is currently working on another book with a near death experiencer named Kelly Walsh about the transformative aspect of NDEs around the world. She has found that those patients who have had a positive near death experience are no longer afraid to die.

In this episode’s Listener Segment, Despina, added a miraculous experience she had on a Greek Island where she made a pilgrimage to the church of a local saint. She walked thirty miles in one day and had a mystical adventure you won’t soon forget.

Where St. Markelaa was swallowed by the sea on the island of Chios, Greece.

Psychic Experiences of Psi Explorers #42

In this podcast episode #42 recorded on January 3, 2017, Kate Valentine and Fahrusha speak to two Psi Explorers and one listener about their personal psychic experiences.

Russell Targ and Fahrusha at the 2016 SSE Symposium (courtesy of Rosanna Schaffer-Shaw)

First up is Russell Targ, formerly of the Stanford Research Institute, and one of the originators of remote viewing. His two stories of his own precognitive dreams are thought-provoking. He emphasizes that psychic dreams and other psi phenomena are normal and these experiences can be had by anyone. We just need to be attentive to them.

Russell Targ’s latest book The of Reality of ESP, A Physicist’s Proof of Psychic Abilities is an excellent book explaining several different but related psi abilities and substantial examples from his professional experience. A trailer for his movie about the history of the US government’s Remote Viewing program and his participation in it can be seen at the website thirdeyespies.com.

Dr. Michael Grosso, author of "The Man Who Could Fly"

Next up is Dr. Michael Grosso who tells two stories from his own collection of personal psychic experiences. The first is the story of a beautiful Christmas miracle (I can’t tell you more because that would be a spoiler) and the second is a precognitive dream he had as a child. His most recent book is The Man Who Could Fly: St. Joseph of Copertino and the Mystery of Levitation.

Listener Peter completes this episode with a very strange ghostly experience he had at the illustrious old Hotel Del Coronado in California in the early 1990’s.

Notes: During the episode Fahrusha mentioned an opinion piece on her blog which was reprinted by George Filer on Filer’s Files. We want to also thank Ken Pfeifer for also reprinting it. The article is called Extraterrestrial Evolution.

 

Alan Steinfeld New Realities #41

Alan Steinfeld of New Realities in Damanhur a few years back.

Kate Valentine and Fahrusha welcome New Realities founder Alan Steinfeld to Shattered Reality Podcast. Our discussion is very wide-ranging and very conversational. We talk about a trip that Alan organized and Fahrusha and a group of merry seekers made to Damanhur, the intentional community in Northern Italy, which focuses on ecology, art and spirituality. We move on to ET experiences and the significance of the experience to the individual and to society. Is there the possibility of disclosure? Are ET experiences transcendent? Negative? The same as spiritual experiences? We probe these questions a bit.

Together we do get into ideas and concepts where we voice opinions and hash it out. It was necessary to clarify terms so that we knew precisely about what we were speaking. It was edifying to note, though we might use different terms we were overwhelmingly on the same page.

Dr. Claude Swanson The Physics of Consciousness #39

Dr. Claude Swanson, author and physicist

On November 1, 2016 Kate Valentine and Fahrusha welcomed Dr. Claude Swanson to “Shattered Reality Podcast”. He discusses a number of fascinating phenomena that are not explainable by Western physics and posits an alternative theory of subtle energy and torsion which encompasses his take on the physics of consciousness.

We discuss many topics including time travel, remote viewing, UFOs, psychokinesis, out-of-body experiences and more; all in the context of a different picture of physics. We could have talked to Dr. Swanson for two days straight and still have more topics to cover. Dr. Swanson’s books are The Synchronized Universe: New Science of the Paranormal and Life Force: The Scientific Basis. He is writing a third volume centering on the physics of the soul and the afterlife. His website is http://synchronizeduniverse.com.

Dr. Swanson grew up in Virginia. He studied physics at M.I.T. and went on to get his Ph.D. at Princeton, working with Nobel Laureate Robert Dicke. He did post-graduate work at both Princeton and Cornell. Later he formed his own consulting firm and worked on applied physics projects for a number of corporate and government entities.

This podcast was recorded on November 1, 2016.

Eva Herr Studies Consciousness #38

Eva Herr
Eva Herr, student of consciousness.

Eva Herr is a student of consciousness and what is known as “the hard question of consciousness,” and as such we here at Shattered Reality Podcast have a lot in common with her.  For those who are unaware of what “the hard question of consciousness” is, it is the problem of explaining why any physical state is conscious rather than nonconscious. It is also the question of which precedes which, consciousness or matter.

Eva had a radio program for a number of years called ‘The Infinite Consciousness” on BBS Radio. She interviewed experts in consciousness who were philosophers and physicists and the like. She took her most impressive interviews, made transcripts and created a book called Consciousness: Bridging the Gap Between Conventional Science and the New Super Science of Quantum Mechanics from Rainbow Ridge Books. Eva Herr has also authored another book called Agape.

On this episode we also announced the winners of our contest for Lisette Larkins books. Congratulations to our lucky winners!

This podcast was recorded on October 11, 2016.

Experiencer Lisette Larkins #36

Lisette Larkins, multiple experiencer of alien and paranormal phenomena

On  9-13-2016 Kate Valentine and Fahrusha warmly welcomed Lisette Larkins, experiencer extraordinaire and prolific author, to Shattered Reality Podcast. Her alien encounters are numerous and filled with wise advice for those on Earth-plane.

Here at Shattered Reality we believe in giving our guests the podium to express themselves and relate their experiences. We do not criticize the experiences of others that we believe to be expressed honestly from the heart. So kindly suspend disbelief when listening to the real life experiences of a very nice fellow human being. Are you listening, materialistic debunkers and brain as the seat of consciousness advocates? She has come out of these experiences with a great amount of wisdom which rivals many a sage.

Greatly of interest to Fahrusha in Lisette’s account are the paralysis and electrical “voltage” which precedes the alien communication which Fahrusha has also experienced. See the following: https://fahrusha.wordpress.com/2010/02/27/sleep-paralysis-vibrations-spiritual-revelation-and-alien-abduction-or-getting-out-of-4d/

Lisette Larkins is the author of five books, the latest of which is Above and Beyond, the Incredible True Story of Extraterrestrial Contact. Lisette had graciously and generously offered to gift three listeners with a three book set of her books which were delivered to our listeners.  These prizes were decided by the co-hosts and audio engineer of Shattered Reality Podcast and their decisions are final. Thanks also to the wonderful folks at Rainbow Ridge Books.

Larkins’ latest book Above and Beyond, the Incredible True Story of Extraterrestrial Contact

Dr. Stanley Krippner, Parapsychologist #35

Dr. Stanley Krippner, world renowned parapsychologist.

On July 26, 2016 “Shattered Reality Podcast” was delighted to present Dr. Stanley Krippner who spoke to Fahrusha and Kate Valentine about his studies in parapsychology. He has written and co-written a very impressive list of books and professional psychological papers.

We cover some of his work in dream studies. Beginning with his dream telepathy research with Montague Ullman and at the Dream Lab at Maimonides Medical Center in Brooklyn and continuing with his work today with an amazing female dreamer in Arizona, Dr. Stan gives wonderful examples of powerfully psychic dreams that will stimulate you to journal your sleeping adventures for further contemplation.

Dr. Krippner also discusses some of his shamanic studies and his long-term friendship with Rolling Thunder, a colorful Native American shaman and cultural icon. He wrote a book about this called The Voice of Rolling Thunder with Sidian Morningstar Jones.

Dr. Stanley Krippner’s website can be accessed here for a list of his books and articles to read and more.

Russell Targ, Secrets of Remote Viewing #34

Russell Targ, renowned physicist and author, joins Kate Valentine and Fahrusha for an amazing conversation about remote viewing. This episode is a MUST listen.  Shattered Reality Podcast is honored to present this psychic pioneer and his fascinating story about his seminal work in remote viewing as a contractor for several clandestine alphabet agencies.

Targ is the author of nine books. His latest The Reality of ESP: A Physicist’s Proof of Psychic Abilities he feels is most complete, partially due to the fact that he was able to include both photos and information that were previously, but no longer, classified. He is also the producer of a new film titled Third Eye Spies which is due for release at the end of the year. Fahrusha has seen two iterations of the film in progress and hails it as an important historical document and a gripping narrative of psychic espionage. The award-winning director of the film is Lance Mungia.

One quote from the movie’s home page sums up Russell Targ’s  point of view about remote viewing, “The CIA, NSA and DIA used it, your tax dollars paid for it, and now you deserve to know about it.”

C. M. Mayo, author of Metaphysical Odyssey Into The Mexican Revolution: Francisco I. Madero and his secret book, Spiritist Manual.

On June 28, 2016, Kate Valentine and Fahrusha welcomed award-winning author C.M. Mayo to “Shattered Reality Podcast” to discuss the role of Spiritism on the 1910 Mexican Revolution and related topics. Francisco I. Madero who briefly became the President of Mexico was a devout Spiritist. He was also a leader of the 1910 Mexican Revolution.

Mayo’s book Metaphysical Odyssey into the Mexican revolution: Francisco I. Madero and his secret book Spiritist Manual, is actually two books in one. The first part is a well researched examination of Francisco I. Madero’s Involvement with Spiritism (an offshoot of Spirtualism with some unusual twists) and its effect on the Mexican Revolution and thereby the history of Mexico. It also chronicles C.M. Mayo’s journey to understanding the very complex network of interrelationships between the players and philosophies responsible for the Mexican Revolution.

The second book within a book is C.M. Mayo’s painstaking translation of Madero’s Spiritist Manual which he wrote under the nom de plume “Bhîma”. It is an interesting look inside the mind of one of Mexico’s most famous leaders from a metaphysical perspective.

We think students of history as well as those interested in the paranormal will find this episode fascinating.

Errata: The 2016 SSE Symposium happened in Boulder, CO not Denver.

On March 31, 2016 Mary Rodwell of the Australian Close Encounter Resource Network joined Kate Valentine and Fahrusha for a fascinating discussion about the meaning and effects of alien communication. She has interviewed thousands of experiencers and believes that each individual is the final expert on their own experience with the “others”, whether they be extraterrestrial, spiritual, or inter-dimensional beings. She also has an avid interest in the new generation of children who are experiencers. She has written a book, Awakening, How Extraterrestrial Contact Can Transform Your Life.

Mary Rodwell is a member of The Foundation for Research Into Extraterrestrial Encounters, also known as FREE. We at Shattered Reality Podcast have interviewed a number of FREE’s members including Kathleen Marden.

During the podcast we also hear from Diane, a listener, who had an experience of instantaneous teleportation.

As always, we welcome your comments!

Levitation – Dr. Michael Grosso #27

Michael Grosso, author of “The Man Who Could Fly, St. Joseph of Copertino and the Mystery of Levitation”

 

Levitation, particularly unaided human flight, has been a fascination of many individuals since the advent of human history. In this episode of “Shattered Reality Podcast” recorded on March 1, 2016, Kate Valentine and Fahrusha sought to uncover information about the secrets and reality of this ever mysterious, ever elusive ability, with the able help of Dr. Michael Grosso, author of The Man Who Could Fly.

St. Joseph of Copertino, the subject of the book, was an uneducated and poor man who lived in the 17th Century in Italy. He became a Franciscan friar and during the course of his devotions experienced spiritual ecstasy causing him to levitate. This levitation was beyond his control. It was witnessed by thousands of people during his lifetime and happened hundreds of times in different locations around southern Italy.

Dr. Michael Grosso has taught humanities and philosophy at Marymount Manhattan College, City University of New York, and New Jersey City University. He is affiliated with the Division of Perceptual Studies at the University of Virginia. His other books include The Final Choice: Playing the Survival Game (1985); Frontiers of the Soul: Exploring Psychic Evolution (1992), The Millennium Myth: Love and Death at the End of Time (1995), Soulmaking: Uncommon Paths to Self-Understanding (1997), and Experiencing the Next World Now (2004).

Ryan Hurd on Dreams #26

Ryan Hurd is an expert on lucid dreaming and dream research

On February 16, 2916 Kate Valentine and Fahrusha were very pleased to welcome Ryan Hurd of Dream Studies. Together we discussed the mysteries of sleep paralysis, hypnogogic visions, recurrent dreams and lucid dreaming. You can learn more about encouraging dream remembrances and lucid dreaming. Do “others” visit you during your sleep or during sleep paralysis? Can you be telepathic during dreams?

Ryan Hurd is the author of a number of books including: Dream Like A Boss, Big Dreams, Lucid Immersion Guidebook, Sleep Paralysis: A Guide to Hypnagogic Visions and Visitors of the Night. He also co-edited, with Kelly Bulkeley, the two-volume reference edition Lucid Dreaming: New Perspectives on Consciousness in Sleep.

On October 20, 2015 Kate Valentine and Fahrusha were thrilled to welcome Dr. Thomas Campbell, physicist and author of My Big T.O.E. to “Shattered Reality Podcast”.  Big T.O.E. stands for Big Theory of Everything.

Tom had an illustrious career as a physicist for both Army Intelligence and NASA. In his spare time, he worked with consciousness pioneer Robert Monroe. During this collaboration he began to formulate his Big Theory of Everything. Eventually he published the three-volume set My Big T.O.E.. He sees our 4D reality as an information based virtual reality and consciousness as the key factor. He believes that Love minimizes entropy causing evolution to progress, and to prove it he is a very genuinely kind individual. Consciousness exists outside the 4D Universe we inhabit. Today he lectures on consciousness internationally. Find out more by listening to this podcast episode. Fahrusha attended one of his wonderful and thought-provoking seminars in New York City. She wrote a blog piece about it that can be accessed here.
