As a way of introduction, I thought I would start with some of my own personal experiences that led me onto the spiritual path. If you have any experiences that you would like to share, please do so in your comments to the posting. My first unusual happening was hearing God's Voice twice in a period of two weeks for the very first time. Then at the beginning of 1999, I heard The Voice once more. It was at the end of 1998 and the beginning of 1999 that I had a series of unusual miracles happen to me that propelled me to begin climbing the spiritual ladder. I write about these Divine miracles in my books, Divinely Inspired: Spiritual Awakening of a Soul and Messiah Interviews: Belonging to God. We shall describe additional unique happenings in subsequent blog posts but I did in this first blog post also want to provide you with an actual story that happened in the mid to late 1990s before the Divine intervention of miracles occurred when I was to indirectly witness a paranormal incident that would shake free any doubts I had about God.
What happened to me in 1982?
By the late fall of 1982, I had divorced Rhea, been promoted to full professor at Stony Brook University, and was planning to marry Marcia on Christmas Eve of the following year. My life focused around Marcia, our five children, scientific research, and Primal Therapy. I was heavy into my feelings, now that the therapy was so much a part of me. For the previous year, I had recorded all of my feelings, and by the fall of 1982, I had filled up seven research laboratory notebooks with my handwriting, each book consisting of three hundred pages. There was a lot of repetition and I seemed to have reached a plateau in terms of making further progress. In an unusual display of frustration, I brought the seven notebooks to the edge of my Poquott, Long Island, New York loft and proceeded to throw all of them in one thrust onto the floor below. I felt like Moses smashing the first set of Tablets on which the Ten Commandments were inscribed. Moses had become enraged when he came down Mount Sinai and discovered that the Israelites had built the Golden Calf.
The sounds of the books crashing were subdued by a loud and strong male voice that was definitely external. I heard the words very clearly, “And you shall be Mine.” I remember being both startled and afraid, because I neither knew whose voice this was nor could I figure out how the voice got into my cottage. There was no bipolar disorder or manic depression back then, so I couldn’t blame the voice on my future illness. It was about two weeks later when I heard the voice again. This time the words were slightly different: “And you shall have.” Could this be the true voice of God, I thought. However, I didn’t dare tell anyone what had happened, not even Marcia, until ten years later. I simply ignored these mysterious events and went on with my life, but the words of the voice never left me. Why did this happen? Was this truly the voice of the transcendental God? I had no explanation back then but today I know it was. I kept the books, recording my Primal feelings, for many additional years before dumping them in the garbage along with my three Primal Therapy textbooks. I was to discover twenty years later that I would need these books again.
A True Story, Mid-1990s
I was looking for something to watch on television one evening. I flipped the TV channels and stopped at Larry King Live. His guest that night was an attractive middle-aged British woman, who claimed to be a necromantic, a person who has the power to contact the dead. She was taking phone calls, and reaching trance-like states to connect with callers’ dead relatives. One of the phone calls was from a mother who was grieving over the loss of her two year old son. After a few moments in a sublime meditative state, the British woman made contact with the mother’s son, and began to open and close her hand in the direction of the TV screen, repeating the word . . . love . . . love . . . love. At one point in the show, I chuckled, as Larry King frantically waved his hands in the air above, and asked, “Where are they?” He was trying to touch the spirits of the dead—of course, to no avail. I reflected on what I had observed, and spoke aloud, “That’s neat.” I went to bed, and thought no more of this mystical TV episode; that is, until the surprise of the next day.
At the appointment at my Long Island holistic doctor’s office, I found myself talking with a woman, whom I previously shared conversations with, while we were each hooked up on our intravenous lines. I was into this nutritional stuff beginning in the early 1990s, and I had all of my silver mercury amalgam fillings in my teeth replaced with porcelain. As a scientist, I knew that there would be a lot of ingestion of the mercury during the dental procedures, and thus I elected to have intravenous treatment to remove any mercury, no matter the source, out of my body cells. It took twenty-six weekly treatments, followed by oral chelation, to eliminate all the mercury in my cells, as carefully measured by blood and urine analyses. The woman next to me, to whom I was speaking, was having EDTA treatments for her heart. She paused, and then asked, “Did you happen to see Larry King Live last night?” “As a matter of fact, I did,” I replied. The woman then asked, “Do you remember the clasping and unclasping of the hands, and the repetition of the word love?” “Yes,” I responded enthusiastically. Then she said, “That little boy was my grandson. That’s how he motioned all the time, and the caller was my daughter. We have been sad for the longest time, because we lost such a special child, filled with love.” I was speechless.
This woman was a very nice person, and she had no reason to lie. I realized that this was no coincidence. I was meant to be a part of this unusual happening. I was being shown something quite remarkable. God had created an interesting, dynamic world in which people were given gifts of contact with the dead, extrasensory perception, the odd ability to connect with ghosts and spirits, past lives, UFO experiences, etc.
As the years have passed, I have come to believe in all of these mystical concepts, with the proviso that each person’s gift can only be theirs, if they are worthy, and if God so chooses to endow them with these gifts in their Divine Souls. Those who are not worthy in God’s Eyes may believe they possess the gift, but in fact, they do not. In biblical days, the Hebrew prophets spoke the truthful word of God, and their prophecies were always precisely accurate, unlike that of the famous Nostradamus, who would be an example of someone we think of as an icon, but who actually was not. Some of the true prophets, like Joshua, could achieve supernatural status and make the sun stand still. The prophet Elijah was able to revive Jonah from the dead, because G-d needed Jonah for a higher purpose still to come. In the case of UFOs, my own personal belief is that, where legitimate, the spaceships are being flown by angels. Wild! Crazy! But can anyone disprove me? The Will of God is mightier than any force on earth, including the most potent nuclear power that man will be able to muster today and in future generations.
I'd love to hear from you. What experiences of the Divine would you like to share? Add your comments.
