Dr. John Jay Harper's
Near-Death Experience Research
Dr. John Jay
was a clinical hypnotherapist in Spokane, Washington who has written
a new book that integrates the near-death experience within the
framework of both science and religion; specifically it is a theory
on the operation of cosmic consciousness itself. His passion is
learning not only about life but life hereafter. However, this was
not always the case. John says his inspiration did not come out
of curiosity but out of necessity. In June, 1988, John had an after-death
visitation [see below] with a deceased physicist colleague that
changed him from skeptic to mystic. It was this close encounter
with the land of the dead - and the myriad questions it generated
- that relentlessly drove him for over a decade to solve the riddle
of life after death. The answers can be found in his book,
Tranceformers: Shamans of
the 21st Century. The following is an excerpt from his book
reprinted by permission.
Cosmic Consciousness as a "Field of Light"
By all indications, we are
not in Kansas anymore. It would seem that the winds
of change have blown the rug out from underneath us
scientifically and spiritually too. The myths we
have used - or have used us - to make sense of our
world heretofore are turning into so much nonsense
from a number of perspectives. For example, Albert
Einstein scribbled E=mc2 on a blackboard a hundred
years ago and that equation became the gospel for
those who followed his mathematical logic
thereafter. But now that century old bedrock of the
Queen of the Sciences - classical physics - is about
to be dethroned. More so, the Holy Bible records the
importance of light to everything in existence:
In the beginning God created the
heaven and the Earth. And the Earth was without form,
and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep.
And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
And God said, let there be light and there was light.
Life is light itself.
here are mind-boggling for the speed of light was the one constant
we thought we could anchor our worldview: Our cosmology as well
as our consciousness. Light is what we see and see with in other
words. However, if light-speed is no longer the valid benchmark
to calibrate our sense of perception of the cosmos, then we have
been set adrift on the ocean of opinion. One man's sense of
reality, for example, may not be what the other man senses to be
true of his world at all. If the speed of light is subjective and
not objective, then no thing is solid, not even the molecules of
matter that has created you and me.
Indeed, this appears
to be the case.
The latest laboratory findings in quantum
physics say that the essence of light is a liquid-like medium whose
rate of flow can be turned on and off as a spigot controls water.
It can be slowed down and speeded up. Shockingly, we are being asked
to accept the fact that the fixed laws of nature are not fixed anymore,
becoming unglued at their hinges. In laymen's terms, this is
saying that we human beings create our world reality through our
observation of it, our collective and individual frame-of-reference
within an infinite "living space," an electrified ether
known as the "zero-point
As science writer Lynne McTaggart of London,
England, revealed in her book,
The Field: The Quest for the Secret Force of the Universe:
"Death may be merely a matter
of going home or, perhaps, staying behind - returning
to The Field" (p. 196).
the NDE story of
for a "living" testimony as to the identity of "The
Field or Void": It is God. We also have an older more rigorous,
trustworthy model of reality that validates the whole spectrum of
paranormal psychology - especially trance phenomenon. It is the
spiritual universe paradigm mapped by the mythology of native cultures
and taught by their storytellers: shamans. Shamans have repeatedly
demonstrated to their community members that they can indeed see
and interact with this "field of light" (cosmic consciousness)
that has been heretofore unseen by us "civilized" folks
(with the exception of founders of religions such as Buddha, Moses,
Jesus, St. Paul, Mohammed, Joseph Smith, bipolar disorder sufferers,
and other generic "mystic-types" like myself).
But from my perspective, this is what's happening: our globe's
consciousness is shifting into the fifth dimension of space and
that will turn our 4-D world upside down and inside out dimensionally
- energetically, vibrationally. That is, we are now melting en masse
into the Mind of God: The Big Dreamer. Today we are at the threshold
of a major galactic event that occurs once every 26,000 years, a
harmonic convergence with the Cosmos at Large, and along with the
Good News, there is a lot of bad news as well.

2. Consciousness and the Coming Earth Changes
scientists are musing over the meaning of global warming and the
melting of the Arctic ice cap with a subsequent catastrophic change
in climate worldwide. What they don't realize yet is that earlier
civilizations that have come and gone; for example, Egyptian and
Mayan, experienced this cataclysm and warned us about it. They coded
this critical cycle of change symbolically as the revolving "circle
of animals" in the Zodiac. These pictorial "signs of the
times" were documenting the cause and effect relationship between
the alignment of star constellations, specifically Orion, with Earth.
That is, ancients knew that our Sun - our source of consciousness
- would be entering into a new megacycle of solar power output within
the Milky Way Galaxy at the turn of the 21st century - and beyond
until the entire planet and its people were restored to celestial
beings of light. Likewise, they forewarned us in myths portraying
an apocalypse that this new cycle of consciousness evolution would
trigger massive Earth Changes: surface and undersea volcanism that
melts glaciers and alters coastal landscapes, earthquakes in unheard
of places, and overall wind-rain-snow-ice superstorms of increasing
severity and longevity that destroy crops and marketplaces. In a
sentence, the poles are preparing to flip but that is what will
open the third eye of mankind. This shift of the electromagnetic
fields of the planet will bring a new heaven and a new Earth, a "telepathic
society" capable of creative solutions to problems almost spontaneously
as they arise; indeed we will be manifesting miracles beyond our
wildest imagination. In no uncertain terms, the communication channel
we had to God in the Garden of Eden is opening up within us, again.
We are going back to the future. As Seattle pediatrician and NDE
Melvin Morse, M.D., declares
in his book,
Where God Lives: The Science of the Paranormal and How Our Brains
are Linked to the Universe:
"When I say intuition I mean nothing
less than the ability to communicate directly with God."

3. John Jay Harper's After-Death Communication With
Sebastian Viguet III died in Huntsville, Alabama, of a massive heart
attack on November 9, 1987. He was a young man of 40 when his life
ended. In fact, my best friend George drew his last breath in the
medical clinic of his family physician located right next door to
Huntsville Hospital. So, I guess when your time is up, your time
is up. I mean if your doctor can't save you from the grip of
death even when you walk in to see him with but the slightest complaint
that you are not feeling well, it's simply got to be your time
to go. That is what I call fate.
I had known George for 18
enjoyable years. My friend was born to be a scientist.
was bright, and introverted. I was not all that bright, and extroverted.
However, our paradoxical blend of personalities yielded some fairly
witty conversations over hotly contested chess games and cold beer.
We had many deep philosophical conversations over the years, some
of which were on life after death. George believed that when you
were dead, you were dead and gone, as I recall it. I remained open
to an afterlife because of a childhood experience that I did not
tell him about at that time out of fear of ridicule.
terribly shocked to hear of his death that fateful day, I put on
my stoic face of acceptance. Though later that week at his elaborate
Catholic funeral, where I was a pallbearer, I stared at that metal-box
in front of me solemnly. I kept asking myself over and over again:
Where is my friend this morning? Where in the world - or out of
this world - is the soul of the person that I know as George right
now at this very minute?
This line-of-inquiry turned out
to be fruitful. I was about to learn in a few months hence that
George was not, I repeat, he was not dead. Little did I know then
that that truth would cost me dearly: it would cost me my peace
of mind for the next ten years.
For in June 1988, seven months
after I helped bury him, I had an up-close and personal encounter
with my friend. Around four a.m., in an altered state of mind that
we hypnotherapists call a hypnopompic condition - not quite awake
- I saw George. I saw George standing at the foot of my bed. This
was no dream, however. Though he looked younger, George was the
same person that I had known all these years, except his flesh was
not as I'd expect it to be. He looked like one of these finely
crafted oriental ice sculptures yet very much alive. I kept staring
at him with a deer in the head lights look of amazement.
large part that was because George was dressed strangely. He was
wearing a brightly colored, short-sleeved Hawaiian luau shirt with
a white beachcomber hat! Spontaneously, I jerked myself fully awake
with a start and I asked myself: Is George made of glass? His skin,
as it was, looked a lot like that crystal clear free-flowing water
creature did in the Hollywood movie, The Abyss. Then, here was the
other shocker: George had a row of flattened metal beer cans stuffed
on the inside of his hat's headband!
No doubt this Cajun
was ready to party again!
Yes, I could accept that interpretation,
not a problem. However, upon deeper reflection I sensed intuitively
the symbolic meaning to his bizarre mode of dress. It was not a
comical, playful joke as I first thought it was. It was, as I came
to see with my third eye opened in trance, a profoundly meaningful
gesture to me. George was projecting a set of specific images that
only I would be able to decipher correctly. He was using a true
body language - a word that originally meant to send vision from
afar as, for example, does the octopus, who changes colors to express
itself rather than emitting sounds to do so.
Thus I recalled
that when I had entered the funeral home in Huntsville, I walked
down the center aisle to the front of the chapel, leaned over his
casket, and said:
"George, a joke is a joke, now let's
go get a beer!"
That is, he was showing me by his colorful party
attire and the old beer cans in the hat band trick that he was alert
and very much alive even then at the supposed end of his life.
To the point: my buddy never died at all. George went into the
fifth dimension, and so shall we all "consciously" sooner
"Then shall two be in the field; the
one shall be taken, and the other left." (Matthew

4. Ancient Visions of Modern Wisdom
"As we progress and awaken to the soul
in us and things we shall realize that there is consciousness
also in the plant, in the metal, in the atom, in electricity,
in every thing that belongs to physical nature." (Sri
The Synthesis of Yoga)
Tutankhamun Prophecies: The Sacred Secrets of the Maya,
Egyptians, and Freemasons by Maurice Cotterell reveals
how the Egyptians encoded hidden images about our Sun's "magnetic-reversal
cycles" in the artwork on their coffins. Why would
that be considered a relevant bit of knowledge to leave
behind at the time of death for one's survivors? First,
it would show they understood that all life, death, and
rebirth processes are regulated by the cycles of electricity
and magnetism in stars. Second, it would show they understood
that we are "marked" magnetically by our Sun: "bar-coded,"
in today's word with every thought and feeling we have
in every situation both here and hereafter. Hence, for example,
we see the importance of "sun and water" signs
in charts on astrology as these reflect the way we live
our lives either through our head or through our heart--until
we learn to place both equally into a context that yields
the optimal results for all.
Therein is the thrust of my book: to
explain how this dynamic process of spiritual and physical
evolution works on the symbols generated by our Earth, Sun,
and Milky Way Galaxy: The Magnetic Heart of Heaven.
Of course, "Ra" is the Solar
Logos, the Sun God in Egyptian mythology. Here is what they
knew then: Our Sun is our own larger cosmic mind-body entity.
In fact, it is the Sun of God as God the Son that is incarnating
through us on Earth that is the foundation stone of theology:
The Theology of Electricity.
It is our Sun who is tasked with creating
and transforming electromagnetic mortal beings of flesh
and blood into immortal, crystallized "metallic"
solar beings of light. This is quite a revelation in and
of itselfat least it was to me. So much so that I will be
dedicating a lot of time explaining this idea from a host
of perspectives both scientific and spiritual.
As we shall see, it was these myths of
the idealized "resurrected" man called the Christ
that originated in Egypt, but has been grossly misrepresented
by founders of latter-day Christianityand other religions
as well. No wonder that both Moses and Jesus were said to
be taken to Egypt as children, it is the birthplace of wisdom
on The Bionic Man.
Specifically, I have been able to decipher
some fascinating symbols of mythology as recorded in the
Holy Bible that I learned is the language of soul. Indeed
there is that critical piece of knowledge that has prevented
so many of us from understanding the ancients as wise ones
and the generation of geniuses that they were in fact. They
used symbols to leave a legacy not to record their history
because they communicated with one another and the cosmos
O. Becker, M.D., author of two landmark texts,
The Body Electric and
Cross-Currents: The Promise of Electromedicine, the Perils
of Electropollution, wrote this article titled "The
Relationship Between Bioelectromagnetics and Psychic Phenomena"
that was published in the
American Society for Psychical Research, APSR Newsletter,
16 (Spring 1990). In it, he proclaimed "The intimate
relationship between the Earth's geomagnetic field and
living organisms [show] a firm link has been established
Another physician, Edgar Wilson, wrote
in the inaugural journal I highly-respect, the
for the Study of Subtle Energies and Energy Medicine, "Humans
seem to possess an extremely complex biomagnetic energy
field that operates outside of the nervous system alone."
That is, humanity is a subset of a larger solar field of
light that is minded, and this is why meditation techniques
are used in so-called "primitive" cultures. It
is to connect them with the wisdom of the Sun of God: Our

5. The Sun of God as our Mind-Body at
Professor of Psychology Kenneth Ring put forth the theory
The Omega Project: Near-Death Experiences, UFO Encounters,
and Mind at Large that indeed our day-to-day felt-sense
experience of consciousness and all paranormal reception
is a direct function of human sensitivity to electromagnetic
fields of solar radiation within our environment. That evolution
itself may very well be grooming us to enter into a new
genetic-driven level of solar consciousness that has previously
been the domain of the shaman. Ring's research strongly
suggests that modern visions of "global geophysical
cataclysms" should be taken seriously as a glimpse
of our future. I am one such person that has had these images
flash before my mind's eye; thus I can attest firsthand
to what Dr. Ring defines as an "encounter-prone personalitya
distinctive, spiritually sensitive, and visionary psyche
that may, collectively, represent the next stage in human
Grosso, English biologist
John Randall, as well as social psychologist
Kenneth Ring, have come to the same relative conclusion.
Mind at Large, as Ring defines this entity is, "a benign
transpersonal aspect of [our] mind that is conscious, purposive,
intelligentand capable of interfacing with matter."
Other scientists, in their own ways, are likewise validating
this premonitory insight: Our cosmos is one living field
of creative consciousness forever in the process of birthing,
changing, growing, mutating, shifting, dying but then transforming
itself into something brand spanking new right here and
now. That is what the circle of the zodiac represents; in
short, it is a Wheel of Fortuneand misfortune. It is like
a palate of paints for choosing how to color our world according
to what it needs to survive and thrive and believe it or
not that is why we are here: We are the caretakers of creation,
the worker bees.
At present, there is a growing consensus that we need more
shamans to read the signs of the times for the general public
before its too late to make corrective actions to our electromagnetic
cocoon enveloping the planet that we have damaged through
electropollution unknowingly. The real concern is that we
might end up a breech birth only because we have our head
up our past. It's time to go back to the future for
a refresher course.
Pole Shift, John White, who worked closely with astronaut
Edgar Mitchell for decades at his
Institute of Noetic Sciences,
in Palo Alto, California calls this new breed of man who
is displaying more precognition, Homo noeticus.
Christian trance medium
(1877-1945) is someone who would clearly fit this category
and is in fact a person who White studied for relevant predictions
of a pole shift in the near term. More so, other visions
indicated a time when the planet will become so polluted
that it will begin to eliminate the threat to life posed
by humanity through a catastrophic series of Earth Changes.
White says, "Precognition is the scientific term for
paranormal knowledge of future events."
Here is the rest of the story. Now there is even the possibility
that Edgar Cayce has reincarnatedas he predicted he would
doin the form of a young man living in Virginia named David
Wilcock. I had a few interesting exchanges of e-mails with
this fellow in 2001 and all I will say is he is wise beyond
his years and most assuredly "thinks" he is Cayce.
A book has been written on Wilcock's predictions about
our mutation into light beings titled
The Reincarnation of Edgar Cayce: Interdimensional Communications &
Global Transformation (2004) by Wynn Free. See
For what it's worth, I agree with the new science
paradigm contained in Wilcock's musings regarding
the fact that our Sun's magnetic cycle is the
trigger of evolutionary changes in both the planet
and people as well as animals, plants, and minerals.
Cayce was known to repeatedly say that "mind is the
builder" of physical and spiritual reality through
its constant creation of magnetized "thought form"
images that create a cloud of light around us called

of the collective experience of the human raceour thoughts,
feelings and actions. Untold numbers of thought forms have
contributed to the planetary field of mind. These thought
fields are equivalent to what the psychologist
called an archetype. The totality of thought fields, or
archetypes, constitute an atmosphere of thought energy coextensive
with the Earth's physical atmosphere and beyond, and
can be understood as what Jung called the collective unconscious"
The goal of evolution is to make the contents of
this collectively unconscious mega-mind collectively
conscious in order for all of us to employ its
visions in our everyday affairs. How do we do that
you ask? You begin by ordering a copy of

photon can be affected at faster than light
