Larry Dossey: During my first year of private medical practice, I experienced a dream that left me shaken, and which showed me that the world worked in ways I had not been taught…. Within a week I dreamed two more times about events that occurred the next day, and that I could not possibly have known about ahead of time. Why had a cluster of precognitive dreams erupted, when I’d never experienced them before? It was as if the world had decided to reveal a new side of itself, for reasons I could not fathom.
Anita Moorjani: It was my near-death experience…and I understood for the first time the meaning of life, the meaning of my life… And at that point I was faced with the decision of whether I wanted to come back into life or to continue in the other realm.
Howard Falco: That’s when I hit my deepest point of desperation, lifted my arms up and just said, “I’m ready to know. I’m ready to know every answer I can possibly be shown.” Not being spiritual or religious at the time I asked these questions in my mind or to whatever one’s idea of God is, or just out to the universe. That was the turning point—the true opening to the beginning of the incredible answers that started to come into my awareness.
Frank DeMarco: If this were someone else’s story, I would have some reservations about believing it. But since I was there and it happened to me, I don’t have a whole lot of choice.
Dr. Bernie Siegel: But how are we going to save the planet? By recognizing how we are all one family and that there’s nothing to fight about. That’s what the world needs to do—become family.
Gregg Braden: “If I died in this moment, if I left the world at this moment and could never come back, and looked at everything that I’d accomplished until now in my life, would I feel complete with my time in this world?” And before I could even complete the question my body was responding…something inside of me welling up and screaming, “No!”… What would it take to be able to say yes?
Eva Herr: I went to bed one night being this miserably unhappy human being and the next morning I woke up in bliss. I also woke up with a very profound gift of medical intuition… I can actually perceive very subtle symptoms that an individual is suffering at the moment.
Foster Gamble: But really we are, by definition, not mere physical beings, because our consciousness precedes the physical. It shapes and organizes and then guides the path of these whirlpools that we call our bodies. And by the way, every cell in our body has been replaced within the last seven years, but we can stop and notice that what we call ourselves is still here. And that’s beyond the physical consciousness.
JD Messinger: One of the most powerful things I discovered is that when you really let go of the outcome and attachments, when you let go of your pain or suffering from the past or your fears of the future and live in the now…you begin to experience more of the totality of reality. You can see and experience insights and communications, and messages and signs.
Paul Von Ward: How is it that we have so many people who are not realizing their potential because of distractions, economic problems, and health problems? And I began to grow toward this point where I believe that the whole universe is a self-evolving, self-actualizing organism with its purpose being the evolution of consciousness in all species and beyond.
Peter Russell: The whole of our culture was, in a way, looking in the wrong direction—outwardly rather than inwardly. We all want to be happy, basically, and at peace, but we’re looking out there trying to get the world right, not recognizing that the source of peace is really inside us.
