Returning Home to God – Thavy Mam
Friday, October 9, 2020, 7:00 pm PDT/AZ

Thavy Mam – Thavy’s spiritual set is unique.  With a tumultuous life, she was saved from drowning by an angel at 4.   In 2001, she had 5 spontaneous OBEs in 6 months, “returning to Home to God.”  In 2015, still experiencing emotional devastation; she made a decision that caused her spiritual transformation to accelerate.

Spiritual Beings began waking her to energetic healing, channeling, Egyptian and yoga postures, tai chi, healing modalities from all over the world and timelines, along with the ability to do deliberate OBEs.  She now uses a combination of all these to assist others in their own healing transformation.  Her spiritual skill set is a multitude of tools.

“Everything I learned, all the healing modalities, I learned from my Spirit Guides and angels. I never took any classes or had a human teacher.”, Thavy.

Greater Reality Living Series

The 2nd of 10 independent, interactive sessions in The Greater Reality Living series [this series is being renamed to “Creating the Life You Envision”] with Dr. Mark Pitstick. Today’s session is dealing with a contemplative technique for having a Life Review. This technique can deepen your awareness for connecting to the greater reality for living now.

Creating the Life You Envision*** with Mark Pitstick, MA, DC
Saturday, September 26 at 10 am PDT (1 pm EDT)

The Life Review Technique

*** This is the second of 10 independent interactive & presentation-oriented sessions… (this was formerly called “The Greater Reality Living Series”)***.

SHORT DESCRIPTION

If you were to pass on today, what would your life review be like?  Would it be a work of art, or not so much?  Find out in this session so you can improve and make amends.  This technique can deepen your awareness about greater reality living.  You can share this technique, and a daily mini-version of it, with young people in your life and discuss afterwards.  Note: the webinar fee includes unlimited access to the video recording of this session (access to the video is available even if the live event is missed).

LONGER DESCRIPTION

This technique was originally developed by Ken Ring, PhD, early director of IANDS and professor emeritus at the University of Connecticut.  Author of Lessons from the Light and other books, he has worked with many people who had near-death experiences (NDE).  In his research, Dr. Ring found that the life-review was one of the most impactful aspects of NDEs.

Further, he found that you do not have to nearly die to benefit from a life-review.  Visualizing it during a deeply relaxed state can infer powerful positive changes.   Dr. Ring, now retired, gave me his permission to continue this aspect of his work.

The Life Review Technique is a life-transformative approach that uses deep relaxation and visual imagery to simulate dying and the subsequent life-review.  Processing that experience can produce very real changes that shape your life for the better now.  Using this technique can deepen your awareness of greater reality living and how you choose to live during your earthly visit.  You can share this technique, and a daily mini-version of it, with young people in your life and discuss afterwards.

A life-review can be a potent reminder about what is most important in life.  It can help you focus on your priorities and the purposes you had for choosing this earth-experience at this time.  The life review is not punitive; it is a great opportunity to learn valuable lessons that stay with you through eternity.  This feedback helps you do better the next time you are in a similar situation.

Using this technique can deepen your awareness about greater reality living and applying information from Greater Reality Living (co-authored by Mark and Gary E. Schwartz PhD).  You also can share this technique with young people in your life and discuss afterwards.

The Big Picture of Life – co-authored by Mark, Dr. Schwartz, and Katta Mapes MA, MEd – is a version of Greater Reality Living written for ages 10 -16 or so.  After this webinar, you will be better prepared to discuss this topic and this book with young people in your life.

If you are truly sorry for inappropriate actions in the past, those can be erased and reformatted in the way you could have acted (not should have, for there is no outside judgment here).  The life-review technique can help you more deeply realize your interconnectedness with all life and why the Golden Rule makes obvious sense.

You also can enjoy a “mini-LRT” each night when you go to bed.  Simply review your day with self-praise for your positive thoughts/words/deeds.  Then consider the ways that you could have done better and visualize yourself doing so the next time around.   Feel for ways that you can make amends or improve and resolve to do so.

Dr. Pitstick has used deep relaxation and visual imagery techniques with thousands of persons in private sessions and groups since earning his clinical psychology masters’ degree in 1980.  During the actual technique during this webinar, your audio and video will be blocked so you can relax in the privacy of your home during this group experience.

Recommendations Before the Session

  • Be rested since the induction techniques used are very conducive to sleep.
  • If possible, sit up instead of lying down during the session.
  • Eat a light, healthy meal beforehand so you aren’t hungry or have low blood sugar.
  • Avoid excess caffeine or sugar for 48 hours.
  • Avoid using alcohol or recreational drugs for at least three days beforehand.
  • Get as relaxed as possible before the experience.
  • Wear comfortable clothing that will not bind as you sit still for 45 minutes.
  • Bring lip salve to prevent dry lips during the open-mouth breathing.
  • Drink water and use the bathroom just before your session.
  • Turn off all phones, pagers, or other potentially interrupting devices

Recommendations After the Session

  • Enjoy some quiet time to internalize your lessons, insights, and inner peace.
  • Be careful and really focus if you drive soon afterwards.
  • Keep a journal to note any additional insights that arrive in dream or waking states.

Disclaimer: This session is not designed to replace medical or psychological care.  Your participation is voluntary; you should stop if you feel uncomfortable at any time.  If you have a history of significant mental illness, obtain permission from your doctor or therapist before using this technique.

Christian Theme NDE/STE Discussion Group

Individuals often report having a being they identify as Jesus in their near-death or related spiritual experiences. This group is intended to provide a safe, validating opportunity to share individual experiences. This is not a forum to debate or deny another person’s experiences. All are welcome for the mission of loving and respecting individual experiences and differences of interpretation from religious themed experiences.

Title: A sharing group for those in, or from, a Christian community who have had, or are interested in, near-death or similar experiences.

Purpose: To provide a safe environment for those in, or from, such a community to hear and share these extraordinary experiences.

Are you a Christian who wonders how or if your NDE or other Spiritually Transformative Experience aligns with your faith? Are you struggling to integrate your experience and your religion? Come explore these questions with others having similar concerns. We will share our experiences and struggles and joys and dreams. We come from many different Christian traditions and will therefore hold a variety of views, so we commit to respecting all perspectives and seeing Christ in each other. This is a safe place of non-judgment. There is also no proselytizing. With open hearts we can discern the movement of the Holy Spirit among and within us. While this Sharing Session contains Christian content, it is open to all who feel called to join us.

Greater Reality Living Series

Much scientific and clinical evidence now clearly shows that life continues after bodily death in the greater reality –  the totality of life that isn’t perceived by human senses.  How might this great news, nine related benefits, and the L.I.V.E.S. formula affect the way you live and treat others and our planet?  This event fee includes a digital copy of The Greater Reality book by myself and Gary E. Schwartz PhD.

Greater Reality Living Series with Mark Pitstick, MA, DC
August 29 at 10 am PDT (1 pm EDT)

This is the first of 10 independent interactive & presentation-oriented sessions…

Greater Reality Living – series launch (introduces series and includes a bonus gift).

SHORT DESCRIPTION

Much scientific and clinical evidence now clearly shows that life continues after bodily death in the greater reality –  the totality of life that isn’t perceived by human senses.  How might this great news, nine related benefits, and the L.I.V.E.S. formula affect the way you live and treat others and our planet?  This series launch session fee includes a digital copy of The Greater Reality book by myself and Gary E. Schwartz PhD.

LONGER DESCRIPTION – Overview of Series Topics 

The greater reality is all that actually exists. The vast majority of it cannot be perceived by your five senses, but is nonetheless very real.  It is a scientific fact that your senses, as amazing as they are, detect less than one percent of reality.

Because so much of reality escapes the senses, you likely have viewed life as though through a tiny pinhole and then wondered why things don’t make sense.  Many benefits accompany deeply knowing the contemporary evidence about the nature of reality.  University-based, controlled, replicated, and multicentered research reported in peer-reviewed scientific journals now makes it very clear . . .

Life continues after bodily death.

(Please take a moment and let that great news settle in.)  This life-transformative news will be officially announced in early 2021 after completion of multicenter studies at six universities and institutes, publication of The SoulPhone Experiments book, and publication of a seminal paper in a prestigious scientific journal.  To learn more, visit SoulPhone Update.

In addition to the great news about life after bodily death, much scientific, clinical, and experiential evidence provides a high degree of certainty that you and everyone else . . .

  1. do not really ‘lose’ loved ones after their earthly bodies perish since you can reunite with them when you change worlds.
  1. can enjoy a continued, but different, relationship with them now.
  1. are an integral part of Source Energy / the Light now.
  2. receive assistance and guidance from sources variously described as angels, guides, master teachers, and higher energies.
  3. can have many different and, perhaps, simultaneous life experiences.
  1. can create the greatest life you have envisioned.
  1. are interconnected with other people, animals, nature, and all of life.
  1. have special purposes for experiencing being on this planet at this time.
  2. have a pre-birth plan … “Did  my soul REALLY plan all this?”.
  3. can develop an awareness of past-life traumas that when understood facilitate release of issues carried over into this life.

None of the above is apparent when you rely on just your five senses.  All of the above can assist having a more joyful, peaceful, and meaningful human experience.  That’s why it’s so important to learn more about the greater reality AND deeply internalize this great news.

The term greater reality living describes how you might choose to live as you expand your awareness about the totality of life.  How will you live and treat others – and yourself – when you really know that the benefits listed above are quite probably true?

We pose this question because we do not pretend to know what this will mean for you.  You and all people are unique and have special reasons for being just as you are in this exact moment.  The book Greater Reality Living can help you formulate your best answers.  My book The Big Picture of Life – co-authored by Dr. Schwartz and Katta Mapes MA, MEd – is a version of Greater Reality Living written for ages 10 -16 or so.  After this webinar, you will be better prepared to discuss this topic and The Big Picture of Life book with young people in your life.

Living in more evolved ways is easier when you have a support system of kindred spirits who are also on the path of love, enlightenment, self-growth, and service to others.  We encourage you to expand your circle of loving, open-minded, and service-oriented people.  This is one benefit of online and local Greater Reality Living Groups.

Many people have expressed their desire to regularly meet with a group of such people.  They want a nonjudgmental, safe, inclusive, and respectful place where they can share their personal spiritually transformative experiences and discuss important topics.  Five keys to greater reality living – the L.I.V.E.S. formula – will also be discussed in this webinar.  

Life continues after bodily death.  That has now been definitively demonstrated scientifically!

I hope you join us to learn more about the evidence behind this statement and the benefits listed above.  Knowing all that, and applying the L.I.V.E.S. strategies for greater reality living over time, can improve every aspect of your earthly experience.

Disclaimer: This session is not designed to replace medical or psychological care.  Your participation is voluntary; you should stop if you feel uncomfortable at any time.
