As I continue to undergo tests and therapies to bring my health back up to par, I wanted to tell you about two things. First, this Sunday, April 17th at 2pm EST, I will be interviewed by Linda Frisch for OMTimes Radio. We will be talking about the art of death midwifery, the founding of this community, the Community of Spirits and one more very exciting and for me, monumental, occurrence. If the time is not convenient, the show will be taped and archived so you can listen at a time that better suits you. I will provide a link to that when it becomes available.
Now for the second piece of news. I have said many times that I am stepping forward into this place of building a bridge between the so-called living and the so-called dead without having a clear picture of exactly where this is all heading or how it will unfold. Previously I mentioned that by following the nudges from my inner guides and teachers, I was led to take an online course with Dr. Raymond Moody. For those who are not familiar with him, Dr. Moody, with nearly 50 years of experience in the field, is regarded as the grandfather of the modern day near death experience, coining the very term “near death experience.” He is an MD, psychiatrist and has a Ph.D. in Philosophy with a special interest in ancient Greek philosophy, a brilliant teacher and scholar.
I am in the midst of taking his course and know this will become part of the foundation, along with Rudolf Steiner’s work, of the Community of Spirit’s work to come. I am enjoying his course tremendously and have been telling my inner guides that I need to make a connection with this man. I need to make a connection with this man.
And here is the amazement. As my spiritual teacher promises, if one will step forward to be used in service to the Light that one will be provided for sustained and nourished from the inner planes. A few days ago, an opportunity to have a Skype session with Dr. Moody appeared out of virtually nowhere. I jumped at the chance, sending my email with a bit of background on myself and how I felt Dr. Moody’s tutelage would be of inestimable value.
Well…Dr. Moody has agreed to mentor me privately. He will not only take me through this course I am currently taking but far beyond that over the months ahead. His generosity of spirit and passion for teaching overwhelms me and I am still pinching my cheeks to convince myself this is really happening. Our first session together was more than I could ever hope for and that is only the beginning.
What I will learn from Dr. Moody will be a catalyst of discovery for our growing community. I will share with you, as I learn and we will all grow together.
His knowledge of the ancient Greeks, who up until Aristotle knew the Gods, talked with the Gods, will dove tail with Steiner’s belief that consciousness changed during the Greco-Roman period, and our ready access to the spiritual world changed. There is a portal there, one that both Dr. Moody and Steiner will help me find and cross through, bringing back some of the wisdom from the inner planes we so desperately need today.
I am beyond humbled and honored that Dr. Moody as accepted me as his mentee and will strive to be a worthy student. Definitely more to come…
