Hidden Experience Interview with Kim Carlsberg

January 21, 2011

I very much enjoyed Mike Clelland’s new interview with Kim Carlsberg: http://hiddenexperience.blogspot.com/2011/01/audio-conversation-with-kim-carlsberg.html

It’s a very insightful conversation and very down-to-Earth no matter how far out they go.

Luminosity

April 4, 2010

A new blog has come to my attention through Mike Clelland’s Hidden Experience. Luminosity is Dan Mitchell’s blog, documenting his numerous encounters with beings and forces that seem to transcend our perception of reality. These experiences most closely fit the popular mold of the UFO and abduction phenomena, but very much in the vein of Mac Tonnies “The Cryptoterrestrials” there is much more going on and the truth of these events seems to be far stranger and more complex than we yet imagine.

I fully recommend reading the entirety of Dan’s writings, but I will draw your attention to three of his posts in particular. The first is They, which is potentially one of the better descriptions of the zeitgeist I find myself living in. the second is Metaphysics and Emanationism: Possible Explanations, or more accurately the comments on the that post. Lucretia Heart of Toward a New World drops in to express her differing views on the phenomena based on her own experiences. It’s very good to see two intelligent, articulate first hand experiencers contrasting their conclusions. The third is Dan’s most recent post, RH Negatives, in which he relates one of his most revealing encounters. I will leave you with a short excerpt of that post:

One night this summer several hours after I went to sleep, I woke up and found myself standing in my backyard. There was a being holding on to my right wrist. This experience is as real as any memory I ‘ve ever had. It spoke to me intuitively in the same manner the “Tooth Fairy” being spoke to me as a young child. The first thing I “heard” was,

“You will only see me peripherally. I do not want you to turn your head or you will be frightened. Do you understand?”

Well, I was already frightened to some extent but I wasn’t terrified. What I did see out of my peripherals was completely unbelievable. This being appeared to look almost like a praying mantis that stood approximately 8 feet tall. Yet at the same time, I was noticing that it would change shape instantly back and forth into a very tall man that was somewhat disproportionate. It’s shape was in a constant state of flux. I was told that I would have the chance to ask several questions and that I would be given the answer in a manner that I could understand.

The Cryptoterrestrials is on the Shelves

March 10, 2010

The Cryptoterrestrials has just been released slightly ahead of what I thought the schedule was (thanks to Mike’s comment that let me know).

Anomalist Books doesn’t seem to have a Canadian distributer, but I’ll still be getting my hands on a copy as soon as I can.

You can us the “Look Inside” feature to read the first few pages of the Cryptoterrestrials on its Amazon.com page. I was blown away just by that small sample.

PS I’ve fallen in love with the beautiful cover art by Nadia Sobin, better known as Araqinta.

Release Date for The Cryptoterrestrials

February 6, 2010

Anomalist Books has set a March release date for The Cryptoterrestrials, Mac Tonnies’ posthumous “meditation on indigenous humanoids and the aliens among us.”

Beautiful and very fitting chapter art is being provided by one of Mac’s friends, Mike Clelland of Hidden Experience.

I’m very happy that Mac’s final project will see the light of day. I will definitely be ordering a copy.

Go to Hidden Experience and listen to the interview that Mike Clelland has done with Anya Briggs of Anya is a Channel. It is hilarious, informative and kind of beautiful by turns.

Birth Dates

June 4, 2009

Thinking about the strange pattern of ages and experiences that Mike Clelland has noticed made me consider the significance of ages. I have no insight into his pattern, but I did remember something interesting regarding my own date of birth.

I was born on August 04, 1987. Aside from also being my fraternal twin’s birthday, my aunt’s birthday, and Barack Obama’s birthday, this was also 13 days before the Harmonic Convergence of 1987. I know very little about this event except for what Wikpedia and random sources tell me. It was supposedly originally predicted by Tony Shearer in his book Lord of the Dawn and later popularized by José Argüelles. The convergence was supposed to mark a tipping point, a kind of counter spin to the accumulated negative energies of the world and the dawn of an age of spiritual unity, awareness and peace. The counter spin is supposed to culminate in 2012.

I’m extremely skeptical of prophecy. It rubs me the wrong way, to be frank. In what I see and what my guides tell me the future is always changing. There are things that are very likely to happen, but nothing certain. What really bothers me isn’t the technical details, it’s the idea that the world will be transformed, usually rather quickly in the imagination, into the promised land of whomever you happen to be talking to. Rapture Syndrome comes in a wide variety of flavours, from Christian fundamentalism, to 2012 fanatics, to transhumanists waiting for the singularity. I don’t know what’s going to happen in three years, but I find the words of of Andy Warhol very wise: “They say that time changes things, but the truth is you have to change them yourself.”

With that disclaimer out of the way, my guides have consistently told me that my soul used the energy of the harmonic convergence to get around a lot of the negativity that would have been imposed on me for intentionally reincarnating. Many of the forces with influence over our local system frown on souls entering the system with the conscious intent of changing the rules by which it operates. Of course, if you incarnate to work for a positive or negative power it’s different, but incarnating to end all human suffering through jnana? Big no-no.

To gain entrance, conscious souls usually have to agree to terms of incarnation that will make it more likely that the soul will forget itself and be caught up in another cycle of reincarnation. The harmonic convergence shifted energies to higher frequencies and allowed me to incarnate with fewer of these negative contracts and agreements.

Take that for what it’s worth.

“Shared Patterns”

June 3, 2009

Mike Clelland has written a new post detailing a synchronistic set of birth dates and life events between himself and several other experiencers. That post and Mike’s site can be found here. Truly fascinating and related in his usual clear prose.

Based on a discussion that Mike and I had about this post it was also revealed that his blog, my blog and fellow Nova Scotian Mike MacDonald’s blog, were all started in March of 2009. Mike MacDonald’s blog, Paranormal Musings, can be found here.
