Adventure and discovery was the enticement that drew Lee Elders to this wild lawless land; the supernatural world of the Shuara that live in a mystical realm of ayahuasca-induced visions where the ethereal world is encased within our third dimensional reality. Along the way he discovered his true self - his Kakarma. However incredible some of the incidents may seem this is a true story.

Love your description of a "fabulous illusion," Froggie. Thank you! Reminds me of the Buddha's famous advice:

"So you should view this fleeting world like this --
A star at dawn, a bubble in a stream,
A flash of lightening in a summer cloud,
A flickering lamp, a phantom, and a dream."

Namaste,
Stephanie

Well, I see that some of you are talking about your own soul-realm experiences here. You were silent when I asked on my Love Strings string. I'd still like to hear more about them.

The Christian mystic St. John of the Cross says, "In the end we'll be judged on love, for that's all there is."

Tom,

Your question is a bit broad, which has caused my hesitation in responding. Is there something specific that someone on this thread mentioned that has you curious?

Stephanie

Hi Stephanie,

I made it rather broad because I am interested in a wide range of what I call soul realm experiences, from soul travel, remote viewing, psychic connections, intuitive knowings, sychronicity, etc. Shortly after asking about it here, my FB friend Gonny decided to commit euthanasia after battling cancer for 14 years. A number of us had various soul realm experiences in her regard. I thought people on this board might enjoy reading about them, so I gave the FB page link: https://www.facebook.com/groups/444...=group_activity

I think anyone can read the page, but I might be wrong. The experiences have been many and quite interesting.

Tom

Most of Gonny's FB friends are dog and animal lovers, Afghan Hounds in particular. Her decision to commit euthanasia stirred controversy. She was Dutch so it is legal there as long as someone is of sound mind.

Here was my post that began lots of discussion, much about our own experiences with the souls of others:

Here's how I think we animal lovers might understand the idea of euthanasia for those of sound mind. I've had lots of animals who wanted to struggle till the very end and die that way. Hattie, however struggled valiantly, but I knew she wanted to be euthanized because she just couldn't go on. So, reluctantly I did so. The vet checked just to make sure she was dead. I told him I knew she'd left. I was holding her, my arms around her, and felt her soul leave her body.

During the last 6 mos. of her life Hattie and I grew closer. I knew more than ever what she was thinking. I also felt her fevers and knew her pain. It was overbearing. That time we had together was important in deepening and extending our lasting bond. So when she died to hear her voice internally, and have what she told me be proved correct, was another gift from the soul realm.

And this, which followed a day or so later. I woke up and had begun my daily internet routine of reading and answering emails, reading the latest news, checking on FB and so on:

Gonny is shouting joyously now, so much that I cannot ignore her and do my usual internet work. "I am well. I am well! Please ell them I am well!" She wants us to remember that we are here to learn to love one another and creation. Practice compassion for all. Please stay away from pettiness and unkindness. Her life and her death are meant to underscore this fundamental truth.

To this many responded with their own paranormal experiences regarding Gonny--and others.

Thank you for sharing, Tom. I am sure that for many people--including myself--our first experience with life beyond this earth plane manifested itself in the death of a loved one (be it human or fur person). I've certainly had the experience of holding a beloved animal in my arms at the time of her passing. Like you, I needed nobody to tell me she was gone. I felt her spirit leave her body as tears suddenly exploded from my eyes in grief.

Your post also reminds me of a line from a Wendell Berry poem called "The Peace of Wild Things," where he acknowledges that wild animals do not tax themselves with the forethought of grief.

I will post more later, but must run off to the office now. My greatest soul realm experience came when my best friend suddenly died of head trauma a few years ago at the age of 37. Sudden loss; sudden understanding of the 4 noble truths of Buddhism!

Namaste from the Midwest,
Stephanie

Thanks for your input, Stephanie. I always find such experiences interesting. In fact, as you might guess, they're one of the most important aspects of my life.
