Dr. John Jay Harper's
Near-Death Experience Research
Dr. John Jay Harper
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,
of the 21st Century.
The following is an excerpt from his book reprinted

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:
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. (Genesis 1:1-3)
is light itself.
The implications 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

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"
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.

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.

M.D., declares in his book,

of the Paranormal and How Our Brains are Linked to 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.
George 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.
Albeit 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
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
"George, a joke is a
joke, now let's go get a beer!"
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 or later:
shall two be in the field; the one shall be
taken, and the other left." (Matthew 24:40)

4. Ancient Visions of
"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."
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
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
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
Cross-Currents: The Promise
of Electromedicine, the Perils of Electropollution,
wrote this article titled "The
Relationship Between Bioelectromagnetics and Psychic
that was published in the
American Society for Psychical
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 between them."
Another physician, Edgar Wilson,
wrote in the inaugural journal I highly-respect, the
International Society 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 Higher Self.

5. The Sun of God as our Mind-Body at Large
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 evolution."
as well as social psychologist
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

Mitchell for decades at his
Institute of Noetic Sciences,

who is displaying more precognition, Homo noeticus.

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

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
(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 an "aura."

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
