Film Review: Something Unknown Is Doing We Don’t Know What…

Tuesday, May 25th, 2010

Something Unknown Is Doing We Don’t Know What...  is a fascinating film about the science behind psychic phenomena by director Renee Scheltema.

I watched it over the weekend and truly enjoyed it.

To be honest though, I’m already a believer in psychic phenomena since I am a clairvoyant and intuitive by nature, so for me the film was preaching to the choir.

For anyone not familiar with clairvoyance – it’s also been called remote viewing and it’s the ability to “see” with the mind’s eye things at a distance, places, people and objects, one has never viewed or visited physically.In Scheltema’s film it’s defined as: direct knowledge of the physical world.

It covered 5 areas of psychic phenomena that have been researched pretty extensively; telepathy (mind to mind communication), clairvoyance, precognition (knowledge of future events), psychokinesis (mind over matter), and psychic healing (transfer of energy from the healer).

One of the things I found most fascinating was an experiment that showed our bodies respond to future events before we are consciously are aware of what’s going to happen.One experiment was to place people in front of monitors that showed a series of random photos. Some were tranquil scenes and others were more evocative depicting violence or upsetting conditions. Special lenses photographed the pupils of each participant as they viewed the scenes. Amazingly enough their pupils dilated seconds before they viewed the emotionally disturbing scenes on the monitor. Their bodies were reacting before they could possibly have known what was going to appear on the screen. It reminded me of how animals fled to the hills in Thailand before the tsunami hit.

Another experiment I  mentioned in an earlier post: Could Your Thoughts Create an Earthquake? was covered in the film. This experiment is ongoing and called the Global Consciousness Project. Random number generators placed all over the world measure large group events. Large events such as the tsunami, or 9/11 influence these random number generators and cause them to veer off course. Normally they’re generating numbers in wandering variability patterns but when these large scale events occur the variability minimizes and the pattern looks very different. In other words it’s no longer random. These number generators have been in place for quite a few years so the randomness is well documented. What this means is that we humans are connected to one another and our emotional response to these massive events changes the conscious field on the planet and significantly affects these random number patterns. Huge spikes were noted around events that evoked compassion and deep feelings of connectedness on these days.

In another experiment on telepathy to see if two people in a close relationship can receive information from mind to mind took couples and placed one of them in an MRI machine that scanned the brain and had the sender sit in front of monitor that generated various flashing lights. The receiver’s brain resonance showed that when the flashing lights were viewed by their partners their brains showed significant activity in their visual cortex. How was their brain reacting to something their partner saw unless there’s some form of mind to mind communication going on? This certainly seems like proof positive to me.

Another part of the film covered remote viewing and I was delighted to learn that some people are professional remote viewers. This was highly encouraging news to me as I often say to my friends what good does it do if I can “see” the inside of your house or cities I’ve never been too? Well, my question was answered in the film. A group of remote viewers got together and tried to find Saddam Hussein when he was in hiding during the Iraq war. They saw that he was near Tekrit and that he was in an underground chamber and described the house that sat on top of the chamber. I found this part of the film really fascinating. Other remote viewers are using their abilities to find ancient cities in a new area of parapsychology called psychic archaeology.

The only part of the film I really didn’t enjoy was the sections dealing with mind over matter. I’ve never been too interested in bending spoons. I do believe we can affect matter, but I wish it could have been illustrated with more scientific data or other experiments other than spoon bending. Perhaps there is no other data? I don’t know, but unfortunately this is the only part of the film I lost interest in.

Other than spoon bending section I did enjoy the film. I also learned a few things I didn’t know. It was also good to know that can science validate some of my own abilities.

If you get a chance to see the film I’d recommend it. It’s 104 minutes and for the most part very informative and entertaining. I only gave you a few tidbits of what fascinated me, but there were many other things too.  By the way, if you watch the film you’ll also learn where the strange title came from….check it out.

If any of you watch the film let me know how you liked it.

Intuition: You Don’t Have to Scare The **** Out of Yourself!

Have you ever been convinced something terrible was going to happen?

Were you sure that your kid, or partner was going to be in a horrific traffic accident?

Were you able to think of nothing else and replayed the scenario over and over in your mind?

If so, you were having a “fearful daydream.”

Confused? This sounds like a Premonition, you say?

I know. Don’t worry. I’ll explain.

In a recent post, titled Intuition: Will We Ever Learn How it Works?, I asked readers if they’d ever had any premonitions and several of you commented that you weren’t sure.

Many said that it was because they weren’t able to tell the difference between a “fearful daydream” and a premonition.

The confusion was mentioned several times, so here are some pointers on telling the difference between the two.

Premonitions are when we know something is going to happen for no apparent, or conscious reason. We have no knowledge that was given to us about this event – we just know that we know.

In a premonition the information is not something we’ve consciously been dwelling on, as in the case of a fear that your teenage child will get into an accident – that’s a fear we’re aware of.

A premonition APPEARS in the mind – whole and complete. Again, it’s not something you were thinking about. It’s an awareness of an event that was PLACED in the mind – but NOT by you.

In the case of a daydream you already have a fear that something may happen. This fear plays over and over again in your mind making you think it may just be a premonition. After a while you convince yourself it’s true.

In the example I mentioned about the fear your teenage child might get into an accident; if it were a true premonition the finality and the knowing that comes with a premonition would strike suddenly, and you’d just KNOW that this accident had occurred. You wouldn’t have to convince yourself it was true.

It can also feel like a gnawing in the stomach, or butterflies, or a nervousness regarding the issue that doesn’t subside until the event occurs.  In this case, your body knows it’s true and reacts. This is hard to duplicate with a fearful daydream. You might feel very upset but it wouldn’t manifest with the same physical symptoms.

In a fearful daydream your not so sure ’cause it’s a thought you created with the rational mind – which is a sign that it’s not a premonition. With premonitions YOU KNOW and it arises spontaneously without any influence from the rational mind.

For example, I wrote about the dream I had that told me my father was going to pass away in a post titled, Deciphering Dreams: Is it A Warning, or Intuitive Guidance? (Dreams are the subconscious form of premonitions and we call them precognitive dreams.)

I had this dream 3 months before my father died and while he was perfectly healthy. There was no reason to suspect he’d die so soon. After I awoke I “knew” I was going to lose my father. My first thought was – this is the year I’m going to lose my father. I didn’t want it to be true, but I knew no matter how much I tried to convince myself otherwise (and I did) or how healthy he was at the time of the dream that it was going to happen that year.

Around the time of 9/ll many people had premonitions about something happening. Many were premonitions like mine (I describe this in my previous post) that were non-specific. The common thing about all premonitions is that they come out of the blue. I wasn’t thinking about plane crashes when I began hearing plane crash sounds in my head.

The next time you work yourself up into a tizzy and worry that you’re not sure if you’ve had a premonition or fearful daydream try this:

1. Go sit somewhere quiet where you can relax. Close your eyes and take in some very deep breaths – make sure your stomach balloons out. Hold for a second or two then release. Do this until you feel calmer.

2. See in your mind’s eye a screen – like a movie screen at the theater. It’s white and rectangular and blank.

3. Tell yourself  you’re going to ask a yes or no question and you want to see a traffic light on your screen. If the answer is yes the light will be green. If the answer is no the light will be red.

4. Now relax again, breathe some more. Be comfortable and when you’re ready ask yourself: Am I having a premonition of something that’s going to happen?

5. Focus on seeing the traffic light. It may come very very fast. Or you may just see a green or red color. Be aware it may come as a voice too. You may hear “yes” or feel “no.” It can very subtle so be on high alert.

What did you see? Was it a red light or a green light? If it was a red light allow yourself to relax knowing that you don’t have to be scared any longer. It was just your fears creating a scenario that isn’t going to happen.

Intuition: Will We Ever Learn how It Works?

generation of the magnetic field of the brain;...

Have you ever wondered if telepathy is real?

Or, if precognition is truly possible?

Renee Scheltema has.

She’s the filmmaker behind the new documentary titled, “Something Unknown is Doing We Don’t Know What.” (Click on the title to watch the trailer.)

Scheltema had several vivid psychic experiences in her life that compelled her to seek out scientists studying these fields.

She wanted to know whether science could verify the existence of psychic phenomena.

To her amazement – they could.

I’ve not seen this film but I plan to order a copy  of the DVD. I’ll write a review after I see it.

There are so many things that exist in our Universe that we cannot see – yet they’re very real. I’m only too happy to learn that science is now beginning to substantiate the experiences that so many of us have had.

For a week, or so before September 11, 2001 when I heard the sound of a plane fly by, in my mind I also heard a huge explosion – as if the plane had crashed. I didn’t pay attention to it at first until it had happened several times. Then I started to wonder what was wrong with me, and when I’d become such a morbid person? I kept telling myself to stop it – but I couldn’t. It didn’t come from me – the crashing sound came without my prompting it, or thinking it.  The last time I remember hearing this was the day before 9/11. By that time I was very upset over it because I had no idea why it was happening.

It was only after that terrible Tuesday morning that I remembered these incidents and understood what the significance was.

I was not alone in having some sort of premonition about the 9/11 either. Many many people reported having premonitions about that morning. Too bad our culture isn’t more open to this – maybe we could have stopped it?

I know now that what I should have done was asked in meditation if the explosive end of the flights I was hearing was something real or metaphorical?

Next time I’ll know better – I hope there will never be a next time though, of course.

Just last week I was getting dressed when I kept having the strongest thought directing me to open my garage door run through my mind several times. I rationalized it away saying that I didn’t have to leave for at least a half hour, so why should I open the door? Ten minutes later there was a huge explosion sound. A transformer had blown down the block from my house – and then it it hit me: I have automatic garage doors that need electricity to open! Thank goodness I do have a manual override, but that evening I couldn’t undo the override and had to call a repair man to come to fix the door. Had I only listened – I would have saved myself some money!

When a friend of mine visited me recently we thought she’d lost her passport. The morning I was to drive her back to the airport I was downstairs in the kitchen while she was upstairs putting things in her suitcase. All of a sudden a thought rushed into my head: She’s found her passport! A  minute later she came downstairs waving her passport at me.

Things like this happen to me often so I’m very curious to learn what makes intuition, psychic ability and it’s higher form, mediumship possible. I hope this documentary will shed some light on the science behind these phenomena. If you can get information from the Universe directly which is what we call intuition, and you can get information from another person which is what we call psychic, than why would it be so far-fetched to get information from the other side? I’ll be quite excited to see scientific proof on that.

Have you ever had a premonition of the future? A precognitive dream? I’d love to hear your experiences. Please share with us.

Deciphering Dreams: Is It a Warning, or Intuitive Guidance?

Tuesday, March 23rd, 2010

I knew I was going to lose my father four months before it happened.

I didn’t want to accept it, even though this dream had a very different quality to it than any of my other dreams. Besides, I thought, he was such a healthy 82-year-old. Still climbing ladders to cut down tree limbs and doing all the yard work a younger man in his 40s or 50s would hire someone else to do. How could this be? I tried rationalizing to minimize its meaning, but I knew in my gut that it was warning me of this life-changing event.

All the wonderful moments of my life with my father played out in front of my eyes.

This dream was very different. I was aware that I was dreaming. And, I was seeing it as if I were at a movie theater watching scenes of our life together appear up on the big screen.

I saw myself sitting on my Dad’s lap at 5 years old, then in the water at Jones beach and he was showing me how to dive under with my eyes open; then teaching me to ride a bicycle on the sidewalk outside our apartment building in New York; ice skating with my father in our back yard on the rink he’d built us after moving out of the city; working with my father to put up our above-ground pool….

The movie continued on like this all the way to the present with his helping me move into my current home. During the entire dream I felt the strength of the bond I had with my father, along with this incredible love for him that I can only describe as “celestial.”

I was being prepared for this terrible event. (more…)
