Being a mystic in the supposedly modern era is odd, to say the least. Being a spirit medium is even stranger, especially when you have a difficult time accepting that you’re a spirit medium in the first place. As a matter of fact, the idea that I’m some sort of “spirit medium” isn’t even something that occurred to me until roughly a year ago. Up until that point, the idea seemed ridiculous. I suppose it’s mainly because most people who publicly proclaim themselves as such are obvious frauds. As far as I can tell, to make money as a spirit medium, what you do is tell people that their dead relatives totally love them and are in a better place. That’s about it. That’s how you get paid and/or on television as a supposed “spirit medium.” You lie about your ability to communicate with people’s dead relatives to make them feel better about their relationship with death.… Read the rest

“I’m a rationalist and a very skeptical person with no previous interest in paranormal activity, but after doing some research it seemed like there was a possibility that this entity is real,” Pike said.
On one evening last week Pike decided to place a camera in his bedroom to document what he was experiencing on his sleepless nights. Pike set up a camera facing the bed and went to sleep with the lights on. The footage that he captured was shocking. In the video, around the 30-second mark, an eerie mist rises to the ceiling from Pike’s bed.
“I have watched the footage over and over trying to figure out some logical explanation for what could have caused the image of what seems to be a ghost, but I haven’t been able to come up with a solution,” Pike said about the video. “I am really starting to believe that I captured the entity I saw during my paralysis on video.… Read the rest
I’m not the biggest fan of David icke, but I can’t get behind blaming him for something like this. It’s a little close to the “Satanic Panic” of the eighties, when bands like Judas Priest and games like Dungeons & Dragons were blamed for suicides and murders. Sad story, though.

A small, tearful figure huddled in her stark home in the small Cornish village of Rescorla, Susan explains how her elder son Luke “worshipped” Icke and was so keen to prove his theories on Near Death Experiences, he decided to test them, with fatal consequences.
On May 17 he walked alone to a flooded clay pit and submerged himself in the icy water in an attempt to induce hypothermia.
His aim, Susan believes, was to experience “astral projection”, when consciousness is said to leave the body and lead to a state of heightened spirituality.
Luke, 27, was wearing a life-jacket and goggles, signs that Susan insists mean he did not intend to die.
At some point we’re going to have to acknowledge that scientific reductionism as we practice it is no longer an adequate means of explaining reality. In fact, it’s actually sort of becoming a threat to the entire psychic eco system. There’s nowhere to turn but in my friends, but I don’t see a whole fuck of a lot of that sentiment going mainstream anytime soon. People love to shop for useless crap, but when do we start addressing issues of quality over quantity in regards to human consciousness? Where did this expansionary agenda of rampant breeding stem from in the first place? Why exactly did we feel the need to procreate out of control so rapidly? The answer lies in materialist philosophy, quite possibly implanted into our collective brainstems from afar like a catalyst. If you only believe in outwardly repeatable phenomenon, you’re probably ignoring the vast majority of your inner life.… Read the rest
In this edition of heroic doses we ask the burning philosophical question, can a sufficient dose of psilocybin mushrooms cure someone of atheism? Not a topic I’d considered personally at length until it happened to a friend of mine. Well, let’s face it, I’ve always thought something like this was possible. One thing that annoys me about a lot of hard science wired people’s attitude toward matters such as alien contact and inner godhead freak outs is that I see a lot of, well, if something’s in your head, we can’t quantify data on it, so it’s pointless. Horseshit. Behavior is a physical thing and it’s incredibly easy to study.
Take me for example. As a teenager, after ditching Christianity I can’t say I had much of an interest in spirituality at all. I was more into guitars, basketball, not getting laid, and other typical young guy crap. I will say that smoking weed maybe got me thinking about matters of the soul a bit more intently, but not seriously.… Read the rest
