Amazon just sent me an email highlighting their Vegan-friendly gifts. It included t-shirts and shopping bags with the slogan ‘Eat fruit, not friends’. This immediately made me feel conflicted as it implies that there are certain objects in life that are conscious such as animals and other things that are inanimate and unconscious such as plants.
But when you are a multidimensional person, tuned into many levels of consciousness, you realise that nothing is an inanimate object so the concept that some things are living and conscious and other objects are not, just doesn’t work. It also raises the issue of what to eat when you are dimensionally aware.
Consciousness in all things
Ever since I had a kundalini awakening when I was 18 years old, I have been tuned in to many levels of reality and I realised that everything is actually part of the one mind. It was a moment that profoundly changed my life.
So now I am able to sense the consciousness in all things – both so-called inanimate and animate. And I am not just talking about hearing the spirit of trees, I have even been known to have chats with pieces of furniture! This level of functioning is a bit too much for everyday life so I tend to tune it out.
The Confessions of Basil
A few years ago I had an experience which really made me rethink what it is to be vegan or vegetarian. In the days when I was still eating meat, I was cooking a meal that involved fresh basil. I had shopped for this meal in Tesco supermarket on one of my late night shopping trips after the gym, so none of the packet basil was left. I picked up one of the living herb pots and brought it home.
Later, whilst cooking with the basil and tearing off some of the leaves I heard, with my clairaudient ability, somebody saying ‘ouch’ in an indignant fashion. Perturbed, I carried on but I realised that the Basil plant was speaking to me and telling me its annoyance at having its leaves torn off!
Although I cooked the meal, I continued to ‘hear’ the Basil plant as it complained about being treated in this way. Through telepathic communication, it told me of factory farming of herbs and how difficult it was for them.
I must say I was a bit concerned I would no longer be able to eat anything. I mean if both animals and plants are so alive to me, then what exactly can I eat?
Lessons from Baz and Paz
I told James who thankfully understood and Baz, as he became known, became a member of the family taking pride of place in my office in our then home in Buxton. He started to grow so large that we re-potted him several times.
Me and Baz
We took him for ‘walks’ whilst he was still small enough for us to carry him and he would sit outside in Nature facing the trees in the woods. One day he said, “shall I show you how we talk?” And then he sang a song of consciousness in vibration and colour. He was singing to the trees. He told me that this is how plants communicate.
I also heard Italian Parsley (or Paz as she became known) talk to Baz about their purpose in life. Paz said to Baz, “this is our lot. We are grown to be eaten and then we are born again. Nourishing humans is our purpose.”
But Baz wasn’t having any of it. No humans were worthy of eating his leaves. Now I understand why Basil has a reputation of being King of herbs although, in Native India, Basil is seen as sacred and the Queen of herbs.The British Empire changed it into a masculine herb!
Tuning into your body’s needs
Although I am vegan now, apart from the odd bit of fish, I am not doing this just out of concern for animal cruelty. Truth is, I have long had a difficult relationship with meat and dairy even as a small child and it has been a relief that, as a woman, I have now entered a different phase in life and my body no longer feels like it needs meat.
Spare a thought for the plants and remember Baz
So going back to the Amazon T-shirt slogan, ‘Eat Fruit, not friends’ – to me, there is nothing that isn’t our ‘ friend’. Plants are our friends too. So if you are vegan because you believe that this is the cruelty-free way, spare a thought for the plants who are factory farmed, who feel pain and sacrifice themselves to be part of our cycle of life.
Sadly Basil, a native of much hotter climes did not make it through the cold winter of the Peak District despite a valiant attempt to make it through. As he left me he told me to look for him in all Basil plants as his spirit would go back to be at one with them all.
Baz got even bigger than this!
I hope you have enjoyed the story of Baz. Do let me know what you think in the comments below. 🙂
In terms of studying consciousness, the Near Death Experience or NDE could be giving us valuable evidence indicating that consciousness continues after death. Indeed, the phenomenon of the Near Death Experience leads us to face a fundamental question; does our consciousness exist beyond the brain and body?
The Reductionist view
To the reductionists, this question is an easy ‘no’, as they believe that consciousness is an epiphenomenon of the brain, emerging from neurons as a side effect of electrical firings. To them, all humans are simply mechanical apes who have developed a few special faculties to give them an evolutionary advantage. In the reductionist world, the brain and body are machines and the primary agents of life – nothing is animating them. When death occurs, this primary agent of life is destroyed, end of story.
Over the years however, evidence of people having a conscious experience during periods of zero brain activity has accumulated. The concept that consciousness can exist beyond the brain challenges the reductionist belief system that the body is nothing more than its constituent parts.
Beyond the Brain
It is important to note that it is still a belief system though. There is no absolute proof that consciousness emerges from the brain. Professor Gary Schwartz of the University of Arizona gives us a brilliant analogy. He compares the brain to a mobile/cell phone. Just because you can hear a voice coming from a mobile phone does not mean that your friend lives inside the phone.
If the phone gets damaged, you know that your friend is not affected; the phone was just receiving her voice. Schwartz says that the brain could be acting in a similar fashion – it is just a receiver and a conduit for consciousness, rather than the generator of it.
Hidden Science TV Special
As part of the Hidden Science series for The People’s Voice TV, I co-produced, wrote and presented a special on the Near Death Experience featuring guests:-
Dr Penny Sartori, A former intensive care nurse and the author of The Wisdom of the Near Death Experience.
Graham Nicholls who is an expert in out-of-body-experiences and the author of several books including ‘Avenues of the Human Spirit’
And Jazz Rasool a former physicist and molecular biologist who has created the Energy diamond Software.
Watch out for when we discuss black holes and the Near Death Experience. Enjoy!
In 2007, I was invited to the studios of Press TV in West London alongside the world-renowned author, Diana Cooper to discuss the Science of Angels. But soon I was also discussing some of my angelic experiences.
The whole day was pretty amazing as the Press TV studios were very well equipped and plush, with makeup artists for all the ‘talent’ as well. Some time later, I made several trips to the then BBC studios nearby and it was disappointingly drab in comparison. This interview was actually my first taste of the live TV set up in a studio even though I had already appeared in several documentaries. This studio experience came in handy later when working for The People’s Voice TV.
I am delighted to find that this interview has now resurfaced on Youtube courtesy of the presenter Rebecca Masterton who did a great job. So here is the discussion on Press TV about The Science of Angels. It is in several parts.
Have you ever had an encounter with angels? Please leave your comments below.
The Science of Angels is just one of the topics discussed on the Online Course Simply Divine as well as the science of tarot, energy healing, the law of attraction and much more. Click the button below to find out more about Simply Divine.
In this article we will be looking at the connection between String Theory and The Bible and asking the question, “Were the Biblical Patriarchs entering Higher Dimensions?”
Modern scientific theories, such as String Theory, have given us the concept that the universe could consist of many dimensions.These are levels of the universe that we are not normally aware of but are supposedly all around us.
It works a bit like a radio; unless you are tuned in to that particular frequency you are not aware of that radio station and all the stations can exist together in parallel.
Physicists themselves are divided as to whether we can actually experience these dimensions. Some wonder if the experience would be like a carp lifted from a fish pond and being taken into a new and seemingly fantastical world seeing new sights, hearing new sounds and experiencing different beings. What would they say to their carp friends once they returned and would they even be believed? (More about Michio Kaku’s insight into carp and hyperspace can be found here.)
What would happen if carp escaped the pond? Image: Pixabay
The experience of the carp leaving the water can be compared to a multidimensional experience in humans. Interestingly, there is evidence to suggest that this sort of experience has been happening throughout human history. For example, what happens when we substitute the word ‘dimension’ for ‘heaven’ in certain religious texts?
What happens when we substitute the word ‘dimension’ for ‘heaven’?
Let’s look at the apocryphal Book of Enoch. This was an old biblical text that we know was very popular at the time of Jesus because there are several copies of it in the Dead Sea Scrolls.
Enoch lived at the time of the patriarchs, according to the Hebrew Bible and was Noah’s Great Grandfather. According to the book under his name, he was visited by beings who show him various ‘heavens’.
Although the language is different, a lot of people today who are mystics or practice astral travelling will recognise these types of experience. Because experiences of other dimensions are really hard to explain, people of different eras attempt to explain them in terms of what they do know, using analogies from their own culture.

But despite the differences in language, accounts such as these are essentially similar to those experienced by people today. When somebody in our present era has an intense multidimensional experience they tend to want to record it, just as people have throughout history.
In the past, we called these recordings of multidimensional experiences complete with angelic and/ or even alien encounters – the Bible, The Koran, the book of Mormon etc. The language and interpretations may be different, but the experiences show definite similarities.
One thing certainly has changed – in most cultures instead of hailing people who have multidimensional experiences as prophets or holy people, we are more likely to think that they need psychiatric treatment.
In this article we are going to be talking about Forgiveness. Is there something in your life that you just can’t seem to let go of? Has someone in your life really bothered you? You know you should forgive them but you just can’t forget or let go of what happened.
This happens to a lot of people – they know that forgiveness is something they should strive for but can’t quite get there which makes them feel even more guilty.
It’s no wonder, as the way in which we are taught to forgive makes it difficult. I think we are taught to forgive in a way that is all wrong; we are told we should forgive and forget and it feels that we are letting that person off the hook.
This also makes us feel that anybody can do anything to us and we will say it is OK. This can make us feel vulnerable to being attacked again in the same way by that person and that we will just let them off the hook.
It is healthy for us to have boundaries and personal integrity so the usual advice on forgiveness can cause conflict within us. So how can we get peace from the memory of the situation without feeling like we are allowing someone to get away with it?
First – you don’t need to forgive the person or be open to them do it again. What they did was not OK by you, you don’t want that to happen again.
If you change your perspective and realise that it is not the person that you need to let off the hook, but to understand the situation, then you can move towards healing within yourself. You need to understand and process why the situation has come into your life. Once you get that ‘aha’ moment then the inner shift can occur so that you can move on from the emotions.
In Simply Divine we discuss how the Black Hole Principle implies that we have aspects of our consciousness out of space and time beyond the speed of light. This is what is traditionally called the Higher Self.
This is the aspect of us that chooses our lives and everything that happens in it. The key to our healing is to move towards an understanding of why our Higher Self has introduced a particular incident and the healing journey that this has engendered.
What has been this gift in this?
Just asking the question ‘what has been this gift in this?’ can shift the entire feelings about a situation. Sometimes this type of work is so effective that the situation will not affect us anymore and we will feel much more free.
In this post we shall discuss how to access your Galactic Self more deeply.
Some of us don’t feel like we belong here. This runs more deeply than the sense that we are outside a particular ‘crowd’. There are people who have memories of being from a different star system all together.
You may have heard the terms ‘star seed’ or the concept that you are becoming a galactic human being. In reality everybody has a galactic self whether they know it or not. Because we are multidimensional, we have many aspects of who we are. We can think of it like layers of an onion. Some of these layers are to do with star systems and dimensions beyond the world of 3D Earth.
In fact the Earth itself has many many levels to it. So has every planet. In reality all planets are inhabited with beings, but at many different frequencies of reality. We are looking for life as we know it, within our dimension. But there is much more to the universe than we can fathom or measure at the moment; this is what cosmologists call dark matter and dark energy.
This meditation is designed to help you to access the galactic aspects of you – your Galactic Self. Make sure you listen to it when you are safe and won’t be interrupted and not when you have to pay attention to something like driving.
