Miraculous After Death Communication From Teo
When it comes to After Death Communication, it's hard to beat Teo.Cecilie Surasky and Carolyn Hunt are the parents of Teo Hunt Surasky, an exceptionally vibrant, compassionate, and loving young man who unexpectedly passed in July 2020 at 18 years old, a month after graduating from Berkeley High in California. Death did not stop their relationship or their communication. In profound shock from the sudden loss, Carolyn and Cecilie reached out to their extended community at an impromptu Berkeley High vigil, including Teo's friends. Through regular Zoom-circles, outdoor gatherings during COVID lockdown, non-religious rituals, and storytelling, they began an ongoing community healing process that has spanned continents, cultures, and generations. These circles have facilitated sharing dozens of Teo contact stories, including vivid dreams, visitations during meditations, signs, complex synchronicities, direct communication, and more experienced by close to 35+ friends and family who know and love Teo.Stay in touch and get great inspiration content from me, sign up for my newsletter.  Be notified when I publish new content.Get inspiration and informative information from meFind out about opportunities I know will interest youYou'll get a gift just for signing up.

Amirah Hall's NDE And How It Led To Her Becoming A Healer
I've never heard a Near Death Experience quite like Amirah Hall's. Of course, every NDE is different, as I believe they are tailored for the individual.Rev. Amirah Hall, M.Msc. blends “sacred with science” and has been on a four-decade journey of exploring secrets to manifesting and healing. She is a gifted clairvoyant, spirit medium, channel, and quantum healing pioneer. Amirah's spiritual awakening was triggered after her father’s death, divorce, and life-threatening autoimmune disease, all within six months. It was further amplified with a near-death experience while traveling in Egypt when her gifts of psychic vision, channeling, and mediumship opened up. Amirah has a reputation as a world-class psychic, mystic, and mentor with the honor of working with an international client list, including Dubai Royals. Amirah has her master’s in metaphysical science and is an ordained Minister dedicated to providing spiritual tools and guidance to seekers going through their ascension process, reaching higher levels of awareness and healing.🔗 the author of 6 books, including Manifesting Miracles 101, LOVE UP Your Life, and The Essential Guide To Spiritual Awakening. The High Vibe Coloring BookStay in touch and get great inspiration content from me, sign up for my newsletter.  Be notified when I publish new content.Get inspiration and informative information from meFind out about opportunities I know will interest youYou'll get a gift just for signing up.

He wanted to blend shadow work with business strategy, integration, and implementation. Tony commissioned him to interview over 10,000 business leaders worldwide to determine what made them successful and help thousands transform their businesses to be more productive and strategic.Currently, he is studying the impact of shadow work on psychedelic integration. He focuses on bridging the gap between traditional plant medicine and the western mind, intending to bring the insights and innovation that plantmedicine provides to everyone who wants more out of their lives. He believes we are finally on the cusp of proper mental healthcare, which will spur global innovation.He is an international speaker and has traveled worldwide, teaching a blend of strategy, shadow work, and spirituality.

Tyler Deal- His NDE Led Him To Become A Healer
Tyler and I had a fascinating talk about what led to his NDE in his twenties and why he kept it quiet for over a decade. Today, Tyler is a healer, practicing many modalities and wanted to share his NDE to help others know that there is much more beyond the physical world.Over the past 22 years, Tyler has studied, trained, and practiced many therapeutic modalities. He has a broad knowledge and thousands of applicable hours of advanced healing in Hawaiian Lomi Lomi bodywork / Neuromuscular Therapy (NMT) / Craniosacral Therapy (CST) / Thai bodywork / and in the year 2000, had been one of only a few participants in the first training of the Pulse Technique©, developed by Jo Dunning. Tyler is also a graduate of The Centre of the Performing Arts, South Australia (now AC Arts), and the University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo, where he studied literature and creative writing.After a near-death experience (NDE) from a mountain bike accident, Tyler was propelled into the inner world of self-healing, where he was faced with examining deep-seated trauma at the molecular level. The self-healing has given him inner gifts that have allowed him to connect more intimately with the Earth, elemental spirits, animals, and plants, and to guide people back to their beautiful core essence.Tyler’s specialty is working with highly sensitive and empathic individuals, however, anyone is welcome to work with him if they feel called to do so. He works remotely, assisting his clients with recalibrating the bio-energetics of the nervous system, the center of all body system functions and spiritual integration. Spiritual evolution is the process of bringing more light into the nervous system.Over the years, Tyler has been described as a molecular empath & healer, peacemaker, gifted writer, animal protector, and dad to two beautiful cats (one of whom has a cameo in this very video).Tyler's website is: in touch and get great inspiration content from me, sign up for my newsletter.  Be notified when I publish new content.Get inspiration and informative information from meFind out about opportunities I know will interest youYou'll get a gift just for signing up.

Ren Koi- A Conclusive Definition of Consciousness

Ren Koi- A Conclusive Definition of Consciousness
Consciousness. We all know what it is. But, we can't explain it. We can't define it. We just know it.Scientists and philosophers have debated this for years. What is the source of consciousness? What is it? Is it generated by the brain? Some have gone so far as to call consciousness, the one thing we know for sure, an illusion.Ren Koi is a consciousness explorer. He's a deeply contemplative man who has studied consciousness from every possible perspective and put his observations into a book that will appeal to the scientific as well as the spiritual seeker. Stay tuned to find out what he's learned about consciousness and how you can explore your own. Is One offers a conclusive definition of consciousness that might satisfy both the scientifically oriented and spiritually oriented reader.In this thoughtful book about consciousness, you will go on a journey to ask the bigger questions, the deeper questions, that we all need to consider as we walk towards finding meaning in our lives. Through the exploration of what scientists and philosophers have written about to finally come to your own conclusions, this book will expand your mind and your consciousness. - Arlina AllenAll Is One: The Science & Spirituality of Consciousness by Ren Koi offers a conclusive definition of consciousness that might satisfy both the scientifically oriented and spiritually oriented reader.Some of the things we discuss Ren's story of addictionRen's spiritual awakeningRen's recovery storyHis spiritual experiences as a result of meditationHis ten-day silent meditation retreat in 2018His controversial use of psychedelicsHis mental health strugglesWhy he wrote All Is OneWhy panpsychism is a better explanation than dualism or materialism for the origins of consciousnessPantheism (God is everything) is the conclusion he came to from my own experiences and all the research he conducted.Ren's sign from God that Jesus is real.Despite centuries of analyses and debates between scientists and philosophers, consciousness remains puzzling and controversial. It is the most familiar yet mysterious aspect of our lives. There might be different levels of consciousness, different kinds of consciousness, or just one kind with different features. Modern research into the human brain is yet to provide conclusive answers, and we don’t know if animals, insects, or plants are conscious, or even the universe itself.The contrasting range of research suggests that a new approach might be needed -- one that includes both an objective scientific view and a subjective philosophical and spiritual view -- in order to unlock the mystery.
