“Why Are There Monkeys?” — the TRUE story of the STRANGEST & FUNNIEST NDE EVER! by Seattle IANDS

Brooke Jones — former LA & SF Radio Personality & Political Satirist; named “LA’s FUNNIEST LADY”; Breast Cancer Warrior and Author of the newly-published Memoir “Why Are There Monkeys? (and other questions for God)”– the TRUE story of the FUNNIEST NDE EVER! Former LA & SF Radio Personality Brooke Jones has interviewed more celebrities than she can count, but the most amazing interview she ever conducted occurred after she died and found herself interviewing God (and she was given proof that her “Divine Experience” really happened!). If you think a conversation with God couldn’t possibly be funny, you’re in for a very big surprise! On ISGO at Sat. May. 8, 1:30 pm PDT (4:30 pm EDT).

Brooke Jones’ just published Memoir, “Why Are There Monkeys? (and other questions for God)” is a deeply inspirational, laugh-out-loud funny story of her near-death question & answer session with God. And she knows her Divine Experience really happened because she given proof that no one could deny! One minute she was alive. The next minute she was dead! That should have been the end of her story, but it was only the beginning. Eight minutes passed here on Earth while she was busy being dead, but she wasn’t “on Earth.” She was at Heaven’s “Front Door” interviewing God! She asked every question she could think of; God provided the answers, and the first thing she learned is that God has a sense of humor (well of course God has a sense of humor — have you ever seen a Platypus?) Join us for a fun afternoon on Sat. May. 8, 1:30 pm PDT (4:30 pm EDT).

IANDS Launch Pad Series with Dr. Karen Michelle, Psy.D.
Saturday, April 3, 2021, 10 am PDT (1 pm EDT)

A Heart of Harps – a faeries guide to being human.

Karen has had a life full of experiences – multiple child NDEs, three adult NDEs from a traumatic car crash injury and subsequent surgery, plus several shared death experiences with humans and pets, and pronounced aftereffects including being led to learn the harp and allowing the music to play through her.

Once again we are faced with an individual that hesitates while sharing because the profundity of sources and vastness of experience do not readily emerge from human language. Be sure to sign-up for this event to see and hear the results for yourself. There will be parts of this event featuring harp music channeled by Karen.

Biographical Info:

Educated with a doctorate of psychology, Karen was a full-time practicing therapist until stepping back from a busy work life to provide caregiver support followed by end-of-life companionship for her mother’s recent transition.

Karen remains buffeted by having to deal with the pull of a society that does not recognize the reality of transpersonal experiences. Join us to support this amazing woman coming forward to share her reality that has often been denied by family, friends, professional colleagues, … essentially alone until discovering IANDS and similar validation and affirmation from communities that have walked the talk and heard the music for themselves.

“The gnosis of The Divine World… what is it?” with Gary Young

In the early 70’s I and my young family immigrated to Australia. I thought I was moving half way around the world to become self-sufficient. I was wrong. The real reason was to find an extremely unique babysitter. After a series of eye opening miracles, she very mysteriously informed me that the two of us had to be in a particular place the following day. This came to pass, and as we sat side-by-side, her good friend Jesus stood behind us, put His hands over our heads and gave us “the gnosis of the divine world.” Sat. Oct 17, 10 am PDT (1 pm EDT).
PS: Gary’s favorite book is “A Course in Miracles”… he knows he met the author!!!

“The gnosis of The Divine World… what is it?”
with Gary Young, author of “The Return to Everything”

“And Jesus gave Mary the gnosis of the divine world.” (The Nog Hammadi manuscripts-the gospel of Mary) What I am desiring to share with you may be hard to believe because it points to our core identity and our true home which is way too good to be true! However, due to all this being of God, it is simply too good not to be true. (Gnosis – to truly Know what anything is, one must become one with it.)

In the early 70’s I and my young family immigrated to Australia. I thought I was moving half way around the world to become self-sufficient. I was wrong. The real reason was to find an extremely unique babysitter. After a series of eye opening miracles, she very mysteriously informed me that the two of us had to be in a particular place the following day. This came to pass, and as we sat side-by-side, her good friend Jesus stood behind us, put His hands over our heads and gave us “the gnosis of the divine world.”

The two of us were taken beyond the beyond, to “The Seventh Heaven,” or “The Heaven of Heavens.” One day, after describing to a friend the magnitude and majesty of our true being and our real home, my friend asked me, “What is it like to KNOW your absolute Divine Identity and still find yourself back here in this world?” I answered with, “It is a particular cross to bear.”

I am privileged to share with you this honored experience, for it is a miracle-revelation that reveals what is beyond the NDE experience. In 1992, Betty Eadie put the NDE on the map with her book, “Embraced by The Light.”  While Betty was on “the other side” in divine light, she said, “I just know there is something way beyond all this.” And so she was on her way to “beyond the beyond” in spite of here deceased love ones telling her she had to stay with them. Then Jesus stopped her and told her that for His sake she could go back to earth and become one of His teachers.

Why me? I do not know. What I do know is that the trajectory of my life was parentally altered. I look forward to sharing with you the whole story. I hope you will recognize that it is the story of all of us, even if it is too good to be true.

My book, “The Return to Everything,” by Gary Young is available on Amazon. http://www.amazon.com/dp/1494488418

(“Gnosis” is best defined as an experience of a being or beings becoming one with something. The only way one can truly know anything is to be one with it. To know about something is conceptual, which leads to beliefs and interpretation. To become one with something is a superconscious experience, a.k.a. a miracle. When this is experience with God it is, “A Revelation;” a direct contact with God.)

Gary says his favorite book is “A Course in Miracles”… he knows he met the author.

6. Holistic Breathing Technique

*** This is the sixth of 10 independent presentation & interactive-oriented sessions from Mark…

DESCRIPTION

Various breathing practices have been used across time in different cultures to expand consciousness and assist profound healing.  In the Aramaic language, ‘breath’ and ‘spirit’ had the same root word.  In the Far East, the words chi, ki, and prana conveyed meanings of breath, spirit, and life force.  Breathing exercises are part of many orthodox and more esoteric religions and spiritual wisdom sources.  Chanting, singing, exercise, and love-making are other ways to breathe deeply and rhythmically.

The Holistic Breathing Technique benefits body, mind, and spirit:
1. Body: releases toxins when chronically tight muscles relax; deeply inflates the lungs; strengthens the diaphragm; increases oxygen levels; removes trapped carbon dioxide; alerts you to areas of your body that feel tight and need massaged; invites you to stretch muscles that need it

2. Mind: increases awareness about what is bothering you and what you can do about it; releases stuck emotions; allows an incredible cathartic release via crying, laughing, and yelling; provides a creative time for jotting down insights and ideas; lets go of past lower-energy beliefs about yourself; assists grieving for all kinds of “losses” and suffering; helps you enjoy a more happy and free life

3. Spirit: provides a deep remembrance of who you are, why you’re here, and Who walks beside/within you always; deepens your faith and knowing about greater realities that explain life’s mysteries; reminds you that life and love are forever; helps you know that 99.9% of who you really are is a forever being who does not die and cannot be hurt

While on Earth, you have two sources of consciousness:
1. Transcendent Source of Consciousness (TSC) — also known as soul, spirit, essence
2. Brain-Based Consciousness (BBC)

The quality of your earth-experience is determined by the degree to which your TSC and BBC are congruent.  Life flows much more smoothly and wonderfully when your eternal self and brain are on the same wavelength and are communicating.  This breathing technique is a major key to making sure they’re on the same page.

The good news is that this technique can begin restoring your physical, mental, and spiritual well-being.  It helps you regain a more heaven-on-earth level existence—no matter what’s going on within or around you. Regular use of this technique can restore you to your rightful state as a healthy, happy, enthusiastic, and enlightened divine-human.

Recommendations Before Using the Holistic Breathing Technique:
> Be completely rested so you have enough energy to play full out.

> Eat a light, healthy meal a few hours beforehand so you aren’t hungry or have low blood sugar.  However, you don’t want your stomach to be too full.

> Avoid excess caffeine or sugar for 24 hours before the session.  Avoid using alcohol or other recreational drugs for at least two days.

> Practice diaphragmatic breathing beforehand.

> Get as relaxed as possible before the experience:
– if sitting, your feet flat on the floor and sitting up straight
– if laying down, use a mat, bed or thick carpet with pillow and blanket if needed
– wear comfortable clothing that will not bind
– bring lip salve to prevent dry lips during the open-mouth breathing
– drink some water and use the bathroom just before your session
– turn off any phones, pagers, or other potentially interrupting devices
– have Kleenex handy for wiping tears and blowing your nose
– Set an intention for just what you need at this time to greatly improve your life.

Recommendations for After the Session:
> Enjoy quiet time to internalize your insights and inner peace.

> Be careful and really focus if you drive soon afterwards.

> Share your experience with trusted loved ones if you like.

> Keep a journal to note any additional benefits that arrive in dream or waking states.

Disclaimer:
This session is not designed to replace medical or psychological care.  Do not participate in this session if you feel uncomfortable at any time.  Ask your therapist or physician before using this technique if you are under care for significant depression, anxiety, or any other “mental” symptoms.

Houdini Kids with Lesley Lupo, Presented by Arizona IANDS

Lesley had an NDE during a stampede of horses. In her book, “Remember, Every Breath Is Precious” a newer level of spiritual volunteers was mentioned. She will dive deeper into an explanation of these “blindfolded Bodhisattvas, who she came to call “Houdini Kids”. If you identify as an old soul who grew up a misfit, discover what your mission on Earth might be. These Houdini Kids volunteered to be born into younger families to be an odd duck, the rejects. By this sacrifice, they broke the chain of generational prejudices. Come and hear the reasons why. Join us Friday, April 9th at 7:00 pm PST.

Seeing Beyond The Physical Realms

At age 23, while visiting Mexico to photograph ancient sites in the Yucatan, Gwendolyn Awen Jones became seriously ill.  Western medicines did not help her.  She was eventually healed by an old Mayan “curandera.”  The curandera had foreseen that Gwendolyn would come to her in a dream two years previously and had been waiting for her arrival.  She trained Gwendolyn to use her spiritual gifts for healing.  On her return home to England she spent time learning many different healing modalities.

5. Heal and Transform Your Suffering

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

DESCRIPTION 

Are you ready to release stuck energies and heal old wounds from your past?  (These could be from during this earthly experience, or possibly other times and places.)  This technique can help you gain a broader perspective, see the blessings to adversity, and improve your life because of – not in spite of – these difficult changes and challenges.

Dr. Pitstick will use deep relaxation and visual imagery to help you heal and create the greatest life you have envisioned. In this session, you have an opportunity to heal and transform three past events with recharging time in between.  You can revisit and work on three different events or three aspects of the same one.

To fully benefit from this technique, focus on his suggestions instead of zoning out.  If the details of any experiences are too uncomfortable, you can just sit quietly and not continue participating in that time / place.  Or, your awareness can “rise above” and watch from your past challenges as though watching a movie as a passive observer.

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.

“The In Between” A Trip of a Lifetime…

Jim Bruton was flying a historical reproduction airplane in October 2016 when the engine quit and he crashed into a forest. After over 6 hours of surgeries, surgeons put Jim into a weeklong coma. That’s where his story really begins, as Jim went to a place he calls The In Between. Come hear about the incredible crash and NDE. Join us Friday, February 12th at 7:00 pm MST.

“A man who has accomplished most of his life goals here, also went to the other side to learn more.” Jim Bruton, Friday, Feb. 12 6 pm PST | 9 pm EST

MSNBC War Correspondent - Jim BrutonMy life is one of realizing all my childhood dreams: I watched wildlife films and now have an Emmy from National Geographic; I read popular mechanics and loved science fiction, from which I figured out how to shrink a TV truck into a backpack, transmitting live video from all seven continents, Antarctica, the Titanic, and Mt. Everest; I love to travel and became a war journalist for NBC news; I fell in love with old airplanes and one day decided to build one: 8 years later I had faithfully reproduced a World War I fighter.

It was the second plane I built that was responsible for my NDE. On the second flight the engine quit and I crashed into a forest where I broke all my ribs, ruptured both lungs, damaged my lower spinal nerves, and so on. I was flown to the trauma center and placed into a week long coma, where for those seven days I left my body and went into the In Between.

Understood from both a quantum physics and a spiritual perspective, I was presented with an opportunity to change my future of choices by removing the ones bad for my spiritual growth (based on choices from the past); it was painful to be in this purgatory looking place, but with it was a merciful and loving gift.

Saturday, February 13, 1:30 pm PST (4:30 pm EST)

From an early age, Albert Taylor’s sleep was frequently disrupted by episodes of death-like paralysis accompanied by extremely lucid dreams. His grandmother called them “witch rides,” but in later life he learned to call this facility out-of-body experiences or astral projections.

On these incredible flights, Taylor discovered he could go to distant places, communicate with the spirits of dead relatives and gain psychic insights. Eventually he came to a deeper understanding of his own role on Earth and the meaning of life and death.

Born and raised in Southern California, Albert Taylor performed development engineering on a top secret the F-117A Stealth Fighter. He evaluated satellite system designs in support of former President Reagan’s Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI) or Star Wars.

After a myriad of paranormal events, and as a result of a spiritual awakening, Taylor left behind nearly two decades of work as an aeronautical engineer/scientist, to author and publish his book, Soul Traveler. Taylor is currently a paranormal researcher, teacher, public speaker and artist.

Have you experienced an “Awakening”? No, you’re not crazy!

Please join me as I share the differences and similarities of NDEs and Spontaneous Awakenings. Have you recently experienced an Awakening? Are you confused and perhaps even a bit fearful of what happened to you? Are you wondering if you had a psychotic break in reality? Well, I can tell you, absolutely: No, you are not crazy!

Have you recently experienced an Awakening?
Are you confused and perhaps even a bit fearful of what happened to you?
Are you wondering if you had a psychotic break in reality?
Well, I can tell you, absolutely:   No, you are not crazy!

Now you have to deal with the fallout from this incredible event. I know from my own experience that you have a great deal of confusion about what happened to you, and there are big shifts going on in every aspect of your life.

These shifts are affecting you and your family and friends. They are affecting your work, your home, and your relationships. You are probably asking yourself: How can I navigate in the physical world after experiencing an expanded state of consciousness?

The physical world now seems so trivial, fragile, transparent, unimportant…

What words can I use to explain to my loved ones about my new-found insights? I can’t imagine that they will possibly be able to understand me now… And most importantly: What am I supposed to do with the new-found wisdom that poured through me? And where can I get help to navigate through this new way of “being” in the world?

I know these are some of the questions I had in 1996 after having a spontaneous/kundalini awakening that left me unable to eat or sleep for three months. It took me twenty years to have enough language and courage to write down my story in “The Reluctant Mystic, Autobiography of an Awakening“.

When I had my spontaneous awakening over 25 years ago, it took me another 5 to 10 years to figure out what had happened to me and what to do with my new-found abilities. Please join me as I share the differences and similarities of NDEs and Spontaneous Awakenings.
