A near-death experience ( NDE ) refers to personal experiences associated with impending death , encompassing multiple possible sensations including detachment from the body, feelings of levitation, total serenity, security, warmth, the experience of absolute dissolution, and the presence of a light. These phenomena are usually reported after an individual has been pronounced clinically dead or very close to death. Many NDE reports, however, originate from events that are not life-threatening. With recent developments in cardiac resuscitation techniques, the number of reported NDEs has increased. [ 1 ] The experiences have been described in medical journals as having the characteristics of hallucinations , [ 2 ] [ 3 ] [ 4 ] while parapsychologists , religious believers and some scientists have pointed to them as evidence of an afterlife and mind-body dualism .

Guided by higher intelligence Jose Silva is more than a great American success story... his life is a Universal Success Story. Born into a poor family on the Texas-Mexican border, orphaned at the age of 4, he nevertheless always seemed to lead a charmed life, as if some higher power were guiding him. In fact, he always believed that he was guided by "higher intelligence" to achieve the success he achieved. With no formal education, no mentors to guide him, no power, no money, no influence, he followed the guidance from higher intelligence to become a successful businessman.
Astral projection (or astral travel ) is an interpretation of out-of-body experience (OBE) that assumes the existence of an " astral body " separate from the physical body and capable of traveling outside it. [ 1 ] Astral projection or travel denotes the astral body leaving the physical body to travel in the astral plane . The idea of astral travel is rooted in common worldwide religious accounts of the afterlife [ 2 ] in which the consciousness' or soul's journey or "ascent" is described in such terms as "an... out-of body experience, wherein the spiritual traveller leaves the physical body and travels in his/her subtle body (or dreambody or astral body) into ‘higher’ realms." [ 3 ] It is therefore associated with near death experiences and is also frequently reported as spontaneously experienced in association with sleep and dreams, illness, [ 4 ] surgical operations, drug experiences, sleep paralysis and forms of meditation.

by Stephen LaBerge, Ph.D. Lucid Dreaming Physiologically Verified Although we are not usually explicitly aware of the fact that we are dreaming while we are dreaming, at times a remarkable exception occurs, and we become conscious enough to realize that we are dreaming. "Lucid" dreamers (the term derives from van Eeden, 1913) report being able to freely remember the circumstances of waking life, to think clearly, and to act deliberately upon reflection, all while experiencing a dream world that seems vividly real (Green, 1968; LaBerge, 1985; Gackenbach & LaBerge, 1988). This is all in contrast to the usual past characterization of dreams as typically lacking any reflective awareness or true volition (Rechtschaffen, 1978).
Indigo, Crystal & Rainbow children characteristics Indigo Children: Individuals who are here to bring about the New Age of Peace. Indigo children are often psychic and sensitive and have an internal “lie detector.” They are here to make big changes in the environment, government, and society so that the earth is a place of integrity. The lie detector that they have will help them to bring about these new changes. Indigo’s require a certain kind of environment to best enhance their gifts and abilities and are often labeled by society as “troublemakers” or “problem kids”.
