Proof of heaven by Dr. Eben Alexander Irritated Me and It's Not What You Think,

I just finished reading Proof of Heaven by Dr. Eben Alexander, a neurosurgeon who had a Near Death Experience (NDE) due to E.coli meningitis infection. He describes his out of body experience (OBE) while his body lay in a coma for several days. He remembered seeing human and animal faces, and at times some being grotesques. Dr. Eben called this area of his experience "The Gateway." In a number of my own meditations, I have seen faces. In fact, I thought the human faces were my past lives passing before me. He also saw orbs, which he believed were angels and finally his spirit guide, a beautiful young woman, who led him out of the gateway into the "Core" where God exists. Here he had conversations with God and learned a lot about the cosmic world.

By now I am saying to myself, "Where has this guy been?" Did he read books like, Talking to Heaven by James Van Praagh, Destiny of Souls by Michael Newton, PH.D, or Ruth Montgomery's Many Mansions, to name a few. Dr. Eben stated he was a physician and scientist and his perception about life was scientific and not spiritual. He had even listened to some of his patients and their families discuss spirituality, but he didn't give it any credence.

I had to stop reading the book because at this point I was irritated. Why was I so irritated I keep asking myself. His point of view wasn’t new to me. His soul was waking up to Truth and as a Truth maven I should be happy about his experience. Later that evening during my evening meditation I received clarity about my annoyance.  I was holding on to unresolved issues of my past experiences with neurosurgeons. A nurse once told me that neurosurgeons were the gods of the medical profession.

I had a history with them through the life of my son, Antoine, who was born with severe Hydrocephalus and Neurofibromatosis in 1984. Throughout his 16 years of life we spent many hours in the offices of neurosurgeons and operating rooms. So many times they told me my son would be a vegetable or wouldn't have a quality of life. He didn't have enough brain to function normally. What they didn't know that Dr. Eben discovered through his NDE that we have a consciousness that doesn't need the brain to exist and there is a spiritual world that is not governed by man-made scientific laws. Antoine was living according to his 6th sense. He was clairaudience, claircognizant, and clairsentient. My son was working on a higher level than their medical diagnosis. They presumed I was in denial about Antoine's condition. I wasn't; I lived with him and experienced his abilities. But of course, they didn't believe me. 

So, it's 2013 and I'm reading a book by a neurosurgeon who is telling his fellow colleagues-there's this big, vast spiritual world and that consciousness lives on when the brain shuts down. Thank you Dr. Eben for having the courage to share your "Awakening" with other medical professionals and scientists. Perhaps now they will listen. And thank you for helping me to resolve the issues I had with the gods of the medical profession. Your book is so needed.

H.P.Blavatsky- A Genius, Crazy or Racist, My Pick for Women's History Month

In honor of  National Women's History Month, I decided to highlight the achievements of H. P. Blavatsky, a leading figure in the New Age Movement of the 19th century. I first found out about H.P. Blavatsky while attending Unity Church of Christianity in the 70's. It was through studying about her life that I learned about Easter philosophies, the Ascended Masters of The Great White Brotherhood (White in this context means Light), the lost continents of Lemuria and Atlantis, root races, and Theosophy.

 Born in Russia to a wealthy, aristocratic family in 1831, H.P. was not the usual young woman of her time. She spent long hours in her grandfather's library reading books on alchemy, magic and other occult subjects. One of the best biographies of her life is Sylvia Cranston's H.P. B: The Extraordinary Life and Influence of Helena Blavatsky, Founder of the Modern Theosophical Movement. 

 Blavatsky was either a genius, or crazy and many during her era thought the later, because of her extraordinary psychic abilities and her talk of letters she received from The Masters, who existed in another dimension. Her book, Secret Doctrine, now considered her magnum opus promulgates the theory that humanity's evolution on Earth is part of the overall Cosmic evolution. The process is overseen by a hidden Spiritual Hierarchy, called the Masters of the Ancient Wisdom or Great White Brotherhood. The Masters are advanced spiritual beings that can inhabit both this dimension and higher echelons

Blavatsky co-founded the Theosophical Society in New York City in 1875, in accordance with the Masters' plan to have an infrastructure on Earth to disseminate spiritual information and help with the ascension of  humanity. According to Wikipedia, Blavatsky saw herself as a missionary of this ancient knowledge and one of the main purposes of the Theosophical Society was "to form a nucleus of the Universal Brotherhood of Humanity, without distinction of race, creed, sex, caste or color". 

I once read that Blavatsky was a racist because of her use of the word, Aryan, to describe a group of people who were superior to other races. I now realize that her use of the word was taken out of context. Blavatsky described the fifth root race with the following words: The Aryan races, for instance, now varying from dark brown, almost black, red-brown-yellow, down to the whitest creamy colour, are yet all of the same stock – the Fifth Root-Race – and spring from one single progenitor, which Hindus call Manu. 

Blavatsky was a visionary and trailblazer in introducing Eastern religious and spiritual thinking into the Western world during the 19th century. All of her books, first published over a hundred years ago, are still in print. If you want to learn more about Blavatsky, her work, and Theosophical Society, I recommend you visit their website at or just google the initials H.P.B.
