IANDS Stellar Speaker Series

Being trained as an energy practitioner and clairvoyant from the age of 4 set the stage for one of the world’s foremost authorities on the science and verification of the effectiveness of energy practitioners for certification purposes. This woman’s life journey would fill an encyclopedia… it is a talk you won’t want to miss and do it live to have your questions answered. From auras to stem cells, Dr. Connor, has explored the depth and breadth of human existence…

Walking the Path of Energy Science and Mysticism
with Melinda H. Connor, D.D., Ph.D., AMP, FAM

Join Melinda as she shares an incredible life journey of scientific and academic accomplishments that are almost too extraordinary to be believable. That is not to say that the path was easy as it is also testimony to the spiritual components that reinforced her reality. The blending of science and ethereal practices led to development of theory, techniques to evaluate that theory and the rewards of a life devoted to building a greater understanding of how science and spirituality can contribute to enhancing the potential for having meaningful lives as humans.

The Life Review Technique

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

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.

Unlock Your Intuitive Code Sharing Group

Jane de Forest is launching a regular monthly series on finding your personal intuitive code and enhancing the use of intuition as a strong spiritual aspect of living our daily lives. Join Jane and others for this sharing group topic. Planned to be a regular monthly group on the second Sunday starting December 8, 2019 at 1 pm Pacific (4 pm Eastern).

This practical Sharing Group will help, guide & improve your natural intuition & right-brain information processing. Everyone has a unique “Intuition Code”, whether it is a gut feeling, hunch or empathic knowing, we all receive intuitive knowledge. But in order to interpret this encoded information we need the key. In this group, you will discover how to observe, analyze and develop your natural gifts.

Join Jane for this informative & entertaining group. Whether you’re just starting out on your journey of self-discovery or hoping to take your intuitive abilities to the next level, this group provides the opportunity and supportive space for you to extend your awareness and have fun with like-minded people.

Jane de Forest has studied with Lakota Shaman, Buddhist meditation teachers, as well as at the Rhode Island School of Design. Her multiple-award-winning book, Love Never Dies-A Psychic Artist Illustrates True Stories Of The Afterlife, is a first-hand account of people reunited with loved ones and animals in the afterlife. Jane’s pro bono and volunteer work includes communication for children with special needs and her “Save The Bees” and Portland IANDS Group Leader.

Jane’s comment from her website www.janesinspiration.com:

“As a professional Intuitive for almost 20 years, I’ve been blessed to work with personal and business clients. Practicing meditation with my gift of “sight” has given me insight into the many layers that we think of as reality.  I don’t pretend to know why or how it works. But I do know that it’s real. I’ve had the privilege to share readings with many wonderful souls all over the world who were seeking answers and insight.  Each session is as unique as the individual I’m visiting with but always meaningful—even if I don’t understand a message meant just for the client. In addition to intuitive consultations, I have designed this experience into classes and workshops for adults and kids that gently guide participants into a deeper experience of creativity and self-discovery.”
