Have you been experiencing some radical shifts of consciousness and “higher self” experiences lately? Stories of “ordinary” people suddenly traveling out of their body, channelling their higher self, and having instant personal transformation are appearing all over the web.
Maybe we’re just coming “out of the closet” about such experiences. I have had many such experiences over the years, including a spontaneous collapse onto a cement floor, a brief trip out into the universe, and a return to what I still feel is an entirely different level of so-called reality.
To backtrack a bit, I am both a metaphysician, a mind-brain researcher and doctor of psychology. So I want both my intuition and my logic to agree on the answer. Whew!
However something new is now peering out of the mysterious closet of the world of modern science, and it has profoundly clarified my personal understanding of the “higher self.”
Scientists exploring the nature of sub-atomic reality have found that what mystics claimed for thousands of years is absolutely true – we definitely ARE connected to a higher source of energy that goes beyond our individual normal selves.
We are now being told that ALL of life definitely exists as a single unified conscious field – an interwoven consciousness in which each part affects the whole at every moment. In more “popular” terms – we are each like a knot on a “fisherman’s net” extending out through endless dimensions of time and space.
This understanding developed as the scientists explored smaller and smaller portions of the atom. They found that at the most extremely small and immeasurable level of reality, there’s still some unknown force. And this force is present even at the temperature of absolute zero, where all other known forms of energy vanish into an unknown invisible force field.
Did you just hear Yoda from StarWars say, “May the force be with you?” I think all seekers of higher consciousness know this to be true on an intuitive level, but scientific confirmation can boost intuition to a new level of “belief.”
Interestingly, this mysterious force field is not exactly “energy,” nor is it a field of empty space. The physicists describe it as a field of information – a “Zero-Point Field.”
This undifferentiated space from which life arises is now seen as a sea of pure consciousness, with matter and energy just two of the forms it can take.
Physicist Ervin Laszlo calls this field the “A-field.” He seems to be referring to the ancient Vedic concept of the “Akashic record,” the nonphysical repository of all knowledge in the universe long been proposed by metaphysicians.
Laszlo says, “The ancients knew that space is not empty; it is the origin and memory of all things that exist and have ever existed. This insight is now being rediscovered at the cutting edge of the sciences [and is emerging] as a main pillar of the scientific world’s picture of the twenty-first century. This will profoundly change our concept of ourselves and of the world.”
The scientific evidence is IN! Our higher self is already totally directly connected to the One Great Source of consciousness, whatever we choose to call it.
You’ve heard of people who channel spirit guides, angels, extraterrestrials and ascended masters. Since this channelled information must also originate in the Zero-Point Field, we must all be potentially capable of channelling. In fact, perhaps our individual brains are sending and receiving stations connected to the one source of consciousness.
A conscious experience of feeling connected to this source is transformative. It taps into the same power the geniuses, mystics, gurus, prophets, holy men and women, and great teachers throughout history have accessed.
Research proves that meditation lets dedicated meditators achieve remarkable higher levels of consciousness. Then there’s yoga, fire walking and brainwave training.
What do YOU feel is the best way to grow your higher self? Can these tools expand your ability to transcend the limits of your “physical” being and directly experience the Zero-Point Field? Many feel the answer is YES. What do you think?

Is there a place where lucid dreams, out-of-body (OBE) experiences and comas, and maybe even life-after-death overlap? Good question!
A lucid dream is a dream in which you wake up in the dream and realize you are awake and dreaming at the same time. An out-of-body experience is said to occur when you become aware that you have consciousness while being somehow separate from your physical body, which is asleep.
Interestingly, a lot people report that their out-of-body experience began in a lucid dream. And there is also an interesting common factor between the OBEs and a coma. It is widely agreed that most OBEs include a brief condition in which your body is frozen and cannot move – sleep paralysis.
Many comas exhibit the same state of physical paralysis. Some physicians believe that a coma is a natural response to injury that allows the body to slow bodily actions and focus on healing. But here is where it gets interesting – some people emerge from a coma and claim they were in an OBE. So here’s the question: Could such a coma be an extended OBEs?
Doctor Mihai Dimancescu, Chairman of the Traumatic Brain Injury Association, says “sleep, and indeed coma, suggest a state of unawareness of one’s surroundings. But while an individual in a coma may be unresponsive, we have no way of determining what they may be aware of.” “While a person in a coma may be totally unaware of his or her state or environment,” he continues, “others may have some, or even full, awareness. Many recovered patients have related events that occurred when everyone believed they were still in a coma.”
Carl Becker, author of “Paranormal Experience and Survival of Death” and Professor at Kyoto University in Japan, has an especially interesting view of OBEs. “OBEs are indeed important phenomena,” he says, “[and] many report their experiences on the battlefield, in automobile accidents, or during surgery, describing OBEs during such events.”
Becker feels this supports the theory of some scholars that life after death may be thought of as a continuing OBE, since OBEs are often reported by those resuscitated from death or coma.
It’s interesting that more and more of today’s high caliber scientists are open to the possibility of other forms of matter and other dimensions. One widely accepted idea is that other spatiotemporal dimensions may exist which may be impervious to detection, but which nevertheless exist and contain ‘universes’ of their own.
And as university philosopher and author George Kneller says, “We probably do have faculties which science has yet to employ, such as the capacity for travel with the ‘astral body’.”
So this brings us back around to the opening question of whether lucid dreams, out-of-body (OBE) experiences and comas might overlap? How would you now answer this? And how would you now rate the importance of lucid dreams and out-of-body experiences. Check this out!
Experiencing higher mental states such as *ah ha moments* is no longer the mysterious realm of mystics and strange geniuses.
Today’s power of the mind researchers have identified the source of that strange sensation of a light bulb suddenly flashing in your brain -– or an oddly pleasant buzzing sound inside your head.
What’s happening? You have simply slipped into the realm of your HQ -– your Higher Intelligence.
What is HQ?
Dr. Jill Ammon-Wexler here. Your Higher Intelligence (HQ) is a fascinating mental state. While your IQ and EQ (emotional intelligence) operate on actual neural (brain cell) pathways or networks -– your HQ is a rebel.
HQ, your most creative and inventive mental state, does not seem to use any connections between your neurons at all. HQ experiences are accompanied by a spontaneous vibration of your cortex (your thinking cap) like an electrified bowl of jello.
That flash of light probably IS very real inside your brain, as suddenly your entire cortex is vibrating at a single coherent frequency, just like you had shot a current of electricity through it.
Can HQ be Taught?
Interestingly, quite a bit of HQ experiences seem tied to the 7 Hz (cycles per second) and lower brainwave frequencies. And it also seems apparent that an open A-T bridge connecting the conscious and subconscious minds is essential.
This could explain why your *ah ha* experience seems so fresh and remarkable -– you have integrated two portions of yourself that seldom meet face-to-face.
The secret of building your ability to experience HQ experiences is to strengthen this conscious-subconscious bridge through A-T (alpha-theta) brainwave training. Come discover the true power of the mind at the Quantum Leap Audios!
