The Chickasaw Migration Story: Journey from the Place of the Setting Sun

The Chickasaw Migration Story: Journey from the Place of the Setting Sun

By Ancient-Origins

From their prehistoric migration to present-day Mississippi, Kentucky, Alabama and Tennessee, to the purchase of their new homeland in south-central Oklahoma in the mid 1800s, Chickasaw culture and heritage has always had roots in nature and the elements. In ancient times, Chickasaws placed great importance and meaning on the locations significant to their history and religion. The great migration legend, […]

Unknown Places of the Earth: Ramtha and John Dee’s Spiritual Diary

Unknown Places of the Earth: Ramtha and John Dee’s Spiritual Diary

By Mark Russell Bell

An Inner world is one of the esoteric subjects found in the Ramtha book A Master’s Reflection on the History of Humanity Part II Rediscovering the Pearl of Ancient Wisdom(2002).  The source for Chapter II is identified as Ramtha Dialogues Tape 013. Ramtha’s teachings in this chapter includes commentary about other worlds and dimensions. I have omitted some of Ramtha’s colloquialisms (“as it were indeed”) […]

More things in heaven and earth …

More things in heaven and earth …

By Michael Prescott

I recently read Stafford Betty’s new book, Heaven and hell Unveiled, a follow-up to his earlier effort, The Afterlife Unveiled (discussed here). In both books, Professor Betty, who teaches religious studies at California State University in Bakersfield, compiles excerpts from channeled literature to provide an overview of the next world. It’s an interesting read, and I recommend it. Though I’ve read a fair amount […]

The spaceship that stayed home: the storied career of the shuttle “Enterprise.”

By Sean Munger

Thirty-seven years ago today, on August 12, 1977, a flight of an experimental aircraft occurred over the California desert near Edwards Air Force Base. The pilot’s name was Joe Engle, the flight lasted 5 minutes and 21 seconds, and the craft wound up on a dry lake bed. Though not very long in duration, this flight was pretty historic: it […]

It’s raining luminous stones … inside the house

It’s raining luminous stones … inside the house

By Weird Australia

By Andrew Nicholson In early 1887, the Large family, living on a remote Cooyal property near the central west NSW town of Mudgee, was terrorised by an inexplicable nightly rain of luminous stones falling, and sometimes floating, inside their house. At first, some of the Large’s 15 children were suspected of larking around, but it soon became apparent that the […]

Ramtha in Los Angeles 2006

By Mark Russell Bell

On Saturday, May 20, 2006 while driving to the Hollywood Renaissance Hotel where Ramtha—in control of the body of his ‘channeler’ JZ Knight—would speak in the Hollywood Ballroom, I found myself experiencing what I would later realize to be a synchronicity incident. I spotted a personalized license plate that said “BONMOTS” and would discover that this was an apt description […]

Remote Viewing Is Easy (My Introduction to JZ Knight and Ramtha)

Remote Viewing Is Easy (My Introduction to JZ Knight and Ramtha)

By Mark Russell Bell

JZ Knight lecture mementos: sketches described in this article can be seen in these photographs. In 2006 my somewhat shallow perspective of the word ‘channeling’ was that it often seemed to denote metaphysical philosophy commercially published and marketed for people with a gullible inclination for expressions of superficial ‘feel good’ spirituality.  In ensuing years while discovering many interesting books about different […]

Out of Body

By Michael Prescott

In connection with my recent posts on NDEs, Andrew Paquette sent me a PDF of an article he published in the Journal of Scientific Exploration (Vol. 26, No, 4). The article is also available online. Titled “NDE Implications from a Group of Spontaneous Long-Distance Veridical OBEs,” it recounts Andrew’s experiments in dream journaling, in which he recorded numerous OBEs (or at least OBE-like […]

The Mysterious Sea Ape of the Aleutian Archipelago

By Narratively

By T. Edward Bak In the summer of 1741, the crew of a secret Russian expedition spotted something off the southern coast of Alaska, and a nautical legend was born. The North Pacific Ocean: late summer, 1741. The naval voyage of the Second Kamchatka Expedition — a colossal (and cumbersome) secret imperial Russian enterprise, launched to determine North America’s geographic […]

Trance Channeling in the 19th Century

By Mark Russell Bell

Mrs. J. H. Conant (Frances Ann Crowell 1831-1875) The expression ‘ascended master’ is something of an enigma in relation to the ways an entity such as Ramtha is different from other transcendental communicators.  I’m not aware if there are other channelers who have described the channeling process as JZ Knight has in her autobiography A State of Mind, My Story (1987): “I was racing […]
