About Me

I am the author of Encouraged by the Light

I have registered on this site in a hope to be useful to someone, somehow. I can possibly be useful in three areas:

  1. I am an IT guy, trained by the guru of photo manipulation software, and former academic publisher for SIL International and the Graduate Institute for Applied Linguistics (GIAL).
  2. I am a person who has experienced three out-of-body experiences (OBEs), one of which was an extended period of being "available"; one near-death experience (NDE); and a number of 100% accurate precognitions. Thus far I have survived writing about them. (Yeah, I know, I also survived them, but that was the easy part.) Thereby, I have traumatic brain injury, which might be useful in some kind of study.
  3. I am the author of Encouraged by the Light, my book on my above experiences which contains forty-five years of analytical reflection (MBTI-ENTj) on my OBEs, NDE, and the mind-body problem, as well as other matters that touch on such an experience. Oh, did I say I am real analytical?

I have worked in the USA, Mexico, Australia, Guatemala, England, Papua New Guinea, Colombia, Russia, and the Philippines in matters that have changed the world.

I have been on two standards development core committees.

I am retired early because of needing Social Security Disability.

If you desire you can use me!

Thanks for your work in an area that affects some of us profoundly and often carries disdain when others become aware of it in us. --johne

I have had precognitions in the past, each being 100% accurate and none that didn't come about. Since I no longer do the work I used to, I think the gift went away with that work.

Anyway, the way I would encounter each, was the information popping into my head from out of nowhere. I would refuse to accept it two times in a row and it would still be there to be accepted the final time. Sometimes I would refuse and it would be dismissed from my mind and then pop back in in the exact same way.

One of them was visual as well.

I'm just curious if that is similar to what happens to you?

Sometimes it happens that way yes. It's like seeing a memory and if i am not paying attention and its something i am meant to see, it will linger or even come through in my dreams.

Hope you are having a really good day!

One additional thing I was wondering if you have noticed. Hope you don't mind my asking you questions. I have noted your posts are really right on the mark with the way I think, which is a bit unusual for me to encounter.

The gift I think I no longer have may have disappeared with an improvement with my health rather than a change in work. I had sleep apnea pretty severely but had done nothing about it. That kind of thing can bring you to a generally poor level of health, removing reserve oxygen in one's muscles, depleting one of adrenalin, raising blood pressure, etc.

So, the question would be have you ever noticed if people's gifts are related to poor health (particularly sleep) as if being all used up puts a person closer to paranormal information?

Thanks again!

Interesting you say that about the health thing and putting us closer to 'paranormal information'. I have CFS So yes you could say my sleep and energy levels are not normal. My metaphysical/psychic energy has always been stronger than my physical energy and when i think of other i know, they are the same. Strange how it works. Maybe it takes an energy split to walk in both worlds so to speak.

Making plans is our way to put our minds to ease until we do what God really wants from us.

Sorry to hear you have CFS! [Cronic Fatigue Syndrom--jce] The organization I was in has a huge population of that illness. It is a missionary organization, so I suppose there is some kind of relationship to third world conditions or being a class a personality that works themselves to the bone. We have noticed some improvement with exposure to really cold climates for a period of time. Perhaps a month in Moscow in the middle of Winter would be a good investment.

Perhaps, if you think it is a worthy topic, you could start a thread where people can discuss the possibility of "have you ever noticed if people's 'gifts' are related to poor health (particularly sleep) as if being all used up puts a person closer to paranormal information and/or experiences?"
