What to eat when you are dimensionally aware

What to eat when you are dimensionally aware

Fruit or Friend?

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!

Bigger Magic from before the dawn of time

Bigger Magic from before the dawn of time


What is it that happens when we step into our creativity? In this article, we shall look at embracing your creative journey actually creates a new way of living that is like tapping into a Bigger Magic from before the dawn of time. 

Elizabeth Gilbert’s interesting assertion 

As you may have seen me discuss before, Elizabeth Gilbert has released an amazing book called ‘Big Magic’ which brilliantly describes the creative process. Although the book does not provide any scientific mechanism for how the creative process works, the way she describes creativity very much fits The Genius Groove.

She has personally discovered that creative ideas sit outside of the self and partner with us in order to be birthed into the world. She also said something else that made me realise perhaps there is bigger magic at play in the world that she may not know about.

During the book, she clearly says that you should not ask for your creativity to financially support you to pay the bills. If it ends up doing so, as in her case, then fine but she believes that she is an exception, not the rule. In other words, she asks you to not follow your passion as your career which is the opposite of the advice of many others.

Stepping onto my true path 

This was very interesting to me. Those of you who have read The Genius Groove will know that I was catapulted onto my current career path, after a series of events which ended with me leaving a career in medicine. I did not intend to suddenly leave the medical profession in that way. My ex-husband and my parents made a case to the General Medical Council that I was not mentally fit after I separated from my husband, citing my multidimensional abilities as evidence.

I myself would have liked to have carried on working part-time in General Practice whilst writing on the side. Hand on heart though, I know I would not have been able to fully commit to the new book and a new way of living had I stayed in such a fear-based paradigm as medicine. The whole setup is to fix people who are ill therefore this is a paradigm that says that illness is a problem, not a learning experience and that it should be eliminated rather than understood.

Dipping in and out of this paradigm on a regular basis would realistically have meant that Punk Science would have been written in a very different way, if it had been written at all. But back in 2002, my immediate question was, how would my creativity support me? Well the answer is, I somehow did get supported. Partly through my repentant ex-husband when I moved back into my house after the loss of my job. I paid my personal expenses through healing clients and talks and it was always just enough to keep me going, whilst he paid the mortgage.

The Road to Abundance 

Eventually, I met my current partner, James who has in fact invested a lot of time and money into supporting my career because he believed in what I was doing. For me, the situation has been less than ideal as I would have preferred to have fully supported myself, but I have realised that somehow, yet again my creativity has been supported. I noticed that bigs shifts came when I started really believeing in myself and what I had to say in the world. 

So I somehow have managed to survive what should have been a catastrophic loss for many years now. I have also lived an incredible life by following my creativity. I have been flown around the world to speak at conferences and met many wonderful people. It seemed the more I let go of, the more wonderful experiences came my way. So the very thing that should not have supported me has in fact brought me great abundance in terms of experiences and enough financially to carry on doing what I am doing.

Living the New Paradigm 

I have found that other people too are stepping onto this path. They are leaving conventional professional careers and are somehow managing in a way that they could not have imagined whilst still in the straight-jacketed career and dependent on the monthly paycheck.

Very few are earning enough to retire to the Bahamas, but that isn’t what a lot of them want anyway. Usually, they just want to earn enough to cover their basic bills and expenses so that that are free to be creative and to follow their mission. In the book, The Genius Groove I call this way of life New Paradigm Living but really it does defy explanation or rules.

What is interesting is that this way of living does exist and it seems to unfold once a person has really committed to their creative path and their spirituality. It is almost as if people slip through the cracks of the rules of 3-dimensional life whilst still living within it, tapping into a bigger magic from before the dawn of time! 

Another thing I have noticed is that when people flounce out of their previous lives saying they are going to ‘make art’, they do not necessarily enter this state of New Paradigm Living. It seems to be entered into in a centred way, when the way is made clear, rather than when the ego self wants it to happen. 

Conclusion and further information 

So Elizabeth Gilbert I disagree with you. Sometimes by committing to your path and your authenticity in a centred way, a different path opens up. The universe can show you a different dimension, a slip door in the back of the wardrobe: the bigger magic from before the dawn of time.

The Near Death Experience on Hidden Science

The Near Death Experience on Hidden Science

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!

Soleira Green on Genius

Soleira Green on Genius

In 2009 I caught up with one of my favourite wisdom teachers, Soleira Green.

Those of you who have been with me from the old days of 2004 and the Children of the New World Conferences will remember her fabulous talks.

Since then she has founded so many initiatives as a visionary coach and genius accelerator but most of all Soleira is so ahead of everyone else’s teaching that she is impossible to define.

If ever anyone is constantly evolving the ‘new’ it is her and her network.

In this interview she gives a succinct explanation of genius a long time before the rest of the world caught up to this way of thinking.

She explains how true genius is the place where the inner and outer genius pool meet and that tapping into this meeting place can be taught.

Enjoy the interview. There is more about The Genius Groove here.

Harry Oldfield and the Invisible World

Harry Oldfield and the Invisible World

Harry Oldfield has been an important figure in the field of alternative health for many years. He is a scientist and inventor and his invention of the Polycontrast Interference Photography or PIP has allowed us to perhaps look into dimensions of the universe otherwise invisible.

I feel he is a real unsung hero. I am just so honoured to know this gentleman. On our very first meeting I was attending one of his talks. The organiser of the lecture had given Harry my paper – Quantum Bio-Cosmology and Harry had read it in the car on the way to the venue.

When I introduced myself and he realised I was the author he shook my hand and said that it was an honour to have me in his lecture.

And it has gone on from there with a mutual respect for each other’s work.

So I was excited to have the opportunity to present the idea to the Hidden Science team of doing a special dedicated to Harry Oldfield and his work which indeed we did.

You can see the results in the video below. Enjoy!
