Near Death Experience researcher for over 30 years, PMH Atwater, discussed her latest book,Children of the 5th World, which details an emerging generation of young people who possess amazing attributes and abilities. She recalled how her interest in the subject began after seeing a number of children who displayed "the typical physiological and psychological aftereffects" of a near-death experiencer, despite never having had an NDE. "What I truly believe is happening is evolution in our time," she marveled, "it's enough to take your breath away." To that end, Atwater mused that the unique characteristics of this gifted generation have left their elders puzzled at how to understand them.
Among the attributes that Atwater ascribed to this group of young people were unusually high intelligence along with interest in creativity and spirituality as well as remarkable intuitiveness, psychic ability, and memory of past lives. She stressed that these characteristics appear at birth, rather than developing in puberty or later in life, and appear to be part of a global phenomenon. As this generation gets older, she surmised, they will be seen as greater threats to the proverbial 'powers that be' throughout the world because they eschew traditional models of government, banking, and business. "They're really not trying to take over the establishment," she observed, "they're growing up without one."
One aspect of this generation that Atwater found surprising was the "constant repeat of thirds" in statistical studies. For example, she noted that about 1/3 of the children register as having genius IQs, 1/3 of autistic children are female, and 1/3 of dyslexic kids are male. She connected this recurring trend to the 'Rule of Thirds' and "nature's preference for harmony, balance, and beauty." As such, she theorized that this emerging generation is a product of some kind of natural cycle rather that via a supernatural influence, since there appears to be a "universal order" at work. Additionally, she speculated that such gifted generations have left their mark on human history in the past and pointed to the Renaissance as a possible product of this cyclical evolution.
In the first hour, UFO disclosure activist Stephen Bassett reacted to the Congressionalhearing on finding life in space. He explained that the hearing focused on the search for "very basic life out there," rather than intelligent extraterrestrials and claimed that "it is as far as they can go under the truth embargo" surrounding the UFO reality. That said, he suggested that the hearing may serve as a "preemptive inoculation" for the public, since his group intends to heavily pressure Congress to hold hearings on UFOs in 2014. According to Bassett, the plan for the new year is to send DVD copies of the Citizen Hearing on Disclosureto every member of Congress and then induce public pressure, via social media, on politicians to examine the evidence.
In the first half of the program, author Gerald Clark reacted to the news that 400,000-year-old human DNA has been discovered and talked about how it connects to his research into the Annunaki and human origins. In light of his understanding of the Sumerian tales of human creation, Clark was not surprised by the DNA news, since it fits within the framework of that theory. The discovery, he said, does not change the potential veracity of the Sumerian creation epic and actually reveals that there were "more potential bipedal hominids" for the Annunaki to use in their genetic engineering. Clark also suggested that the news serves to muddle understanding of the human "genetic family tree" which is a development that he believes is intentionally done as a way of keeping scientists looking for a proverbial missing link rather than accepting the Sumerian creation story.
Regarding his research into the humanity's Annunaki legacy, Clark defended the work of Zecharia Sitchin by clarifying one misconception that is often touted by critics of the legendary author. He explained that skeptics often claim that Sitchin's work was merely the interpretation of drawings on Sumerian tablets. Calling such an argument "ridiculous," Clark noted that "we have thousands and thousands of cuneiform tablets with all kinds of writing" which detail the origins of mankind. He marveled at the growth in interest and acceptance of Sichin's theory since it was first released in 1978 and pointed out that the work is taught in anthropology courses at UCLA today. That said, he called for genetic research into skeletons found around ancient gold mines in Africa, since they would likely contain the best information about our ET creators.
In the latter half, one the world's foremost experts on out-of-body experiences, William Buhlman, discussed the latest in his 40-year long journey exploring OBEs as well as how he used both conventional and alternative treatments to fight cancer. In March of 2011, he revealed, doctors found aggressive stage 4 cancer in his lymph nodes and tonsils. While opting for surgery to remove the tumor in his neck, he also turned to daily Reiki treatments and acupuncture to help defeat the disease. During his recovery from the surgery, Buhlman said, he experienced spontaneous out-of-body experiences where he journeyed to a "white room" which provided him with "energy healing." He theorized that this multifaceted approach resulted in his quick recovery as, within six months of the diagnosis, he was back to teaching six-day long courses and was recently given a clean bill of health by his doctors.
Reflecting on the difficulty of proving OBEs to the scientific community, Buhlman likened the challenge to documenting the reality of dreams. To that end, he observed that, although science cannot provide hard evidence that dreams exist, they are accepted as real because everyone experiences them. Therefore, he argued, OBEs may move into a realm of shared acceptance as more people acknowledge and discuss their experiences. This metamorphosis seems to be already taking shape as he noted that "there are, by some accounts, 50 million Americans who have had some kind or form of consciousness beyond the body." The key to initiating OBEs, Buhlman said, is a change in mindset from seeing oneself as simply a physical being inhabiting a material world to realizing we are all "non-physical conscious energy evolving through matter."
During the middle two hours, practitioner and teacher of natural magic, Dr. Evelyn Paglini, checked in to discuss her predictions and visions for weather, economy and earth changes, as well as how to conduct spells and candle magic. She foresees this winter as bringing a particularly deadly flu season, with a strain that doesn't respond to drug treatments, and tens of thousands losing their lives. The winter will also have record breaking cold temperatures, a cold freeze so severe it will lead to deaths, as well as ice storms, power outages, and flight delays.
Paglini sees a killer summer heatwave in 2014, and a rough hurricane season from Florida to Texas. The economy will continue to suffer, particularly for people over age 50 that get laid off from their current jobs-- many will only be able to find jobs at a big pay cut, she lamented. The stock market will have a correction in the spring, dropping about 2.5% in value, she predicted, but added that the housing market is still a good investment. There'll also be more killing sprees by imbalanced people and "lone wolfs" that will target politicians, she added.
She shared a number of spells and rituals such as how to cleanse your home from negativity. When using something like a sage 'smudge stick,' you have to be very determined and methodical, walking into each and every room, pushing the negativity away into the next room, until you finally get into a room where the window is open, and the negativity is forced out of the home, she detailed.
First half-hour guest, authority on spirituality, Asian history, and Tibetan Buddhism, Prof. Robert Thurman, talked about two different kinds of anger. One of them is a forceful energy that you're completely in control of, and that you can use to right a wrong or correct an injustice. But the other kind of anger is detrimental, when people lose control and lash out, sometimes hurting themselves and the people they love. Eastern philosophies such as Buddhist and Hindu have a psychology that helps you control negative emotional states like anger, instead of these states taking control of you, he noted.
Surprise last hour guest, author Lionel Fanthorpe recounted the bizarre tale of the moving coffinsof Barbados, and his encounter with a 'guardian angel,' a deceased friend who may have saved him from dying in a car accident. He also pondered the mysteries of ancient Egypt and the pyramids.
