A Vision of Hope for 2016

, ,

Each new year offers an opportunity for reflection on the recent past, and consideration of the world we live in and where it is headed. How might we see the whole spectrum of current events in a sensible way, so that we can envision how we might actively influence the coming year in a favorable direction? The terrorist attacks in Paris, Lebanon and California, as well as escalating warfare in the Middle East, are most troubling, and, according to many media reports, our group psyche is reaching levels of fear not faced since immediately following the terrorist attacks of 9/11/01.

These events are indeed disturbing. However, I am heartened by the degree to which I see many in this world awakening to a deeper understanding of our connectedness through consciousness. This profound interconnectedness can help lead us to a more peaceful, loving and harmonious world. Witness how a few weeks after the horrific attacks in Paris, world leaders convened in the very same city to construct the most effective and significant agreement to address climate change in our history. Given the fits and starts of prior attempts at collaboration on this most crucial issue, this confluence of global intentions to address the increasingly dire situation of greenhouse gas production is most promising.

The most central message I bring through my presentations and books is the insurmountable power of unconditional love to change our world for the better. In spite of what many would point to as the darkness of our times, I remain optimistic that the way out of our troubles is always at hand.  Our beacon in these times, as during past challenges, is the great power of the human spirit to usher us into a far better and more harmonious world for all through love, compassion, forgiveness, acceptance and mercy. Unconditional love has infinite power to heal, whether one is talking about healing the individual, the soul group, ethnic populations, nations, all of humanity, all of life on earth, or beyond.

During this holiday season, as we contemplate the potential of the coming year, I invite you to join me in prayer and meditation seeking to manifest a more perfect world. I see this as very much within our grasp. It is up to each and every one of us to serve as a conduit for that love — to love ourselves first and foremost, and to express that love through choices that actively serve to spread that love through us to all of those around us. We all have the ability to serve as points of light for the infinite healing power of love — we simply need to make that choice.

Please enjoy this audio interview that I provided for the Heaven on Earth telesummit I participated in earlier this year.

My best personal wishes for love, peace and harmony – for all of this world!

    I saw you on TV during an interview& it was so beautiful to hear of your spiritual Union with our Lotd in Heaven. It is all about love! God is love! I didn’t have a NDE , but I was very close to death at different times of my mysterious illness. I had nausea & vomiting every day with diarrhea. Becoming more & more malnourished every day. Many tests were repeated, some grueling. It got to the point where I only felt safe in the hospital. It was scary! My whole body was inflammed & I was in pain with back & leg pain , stomach pain like glass churning in my stomach, severe migraines. The tests kept coming back negative. There were 6 doctors treating me of which 3 were specialists. But they were all puzzled. At one point I lost my eyesight for months. An excellent OPTHALMOLOGIST treated me for acute iritis & saved my eyesight. But I kept losing weight ….from 133lbs to 89lbs. The doctors kept telling me” You are going to get better! But I wasn’t . That’s when I prayed to God to please send to a doctor who could diagnose me. I called a hospital in Virginia Gastroenterology specialists. The doctor took me the next day. I knew I didn’t have much longer in this world. He did endoscopy of small intestines with biopsy’s which came back positive for Celiac Disease. It was along road to recovery because I was severely malnourished by that time. God gave me his strength , got me through some very scary times & he kept me calm & carried me when I couldn’t carry myself. And he kept me alive so this brilliant doctor saved my life. Praise our Heavenly Father!

    Dear Dr. Alexander, thank you for sharing your thoughts.

    I am sharing from the Baha’i Writings on Love:

    “Know thou of a certainty that Love is the secret of God’s holy Dispensation, the manifestation of the All-Merciful, the fountain of spiritual outpourings. Love is heaven’s kindly light, the Holy Spirit’s eternal breath that vivifieth the human soul. Love is the cause of God’s revelation unto man, the vital bond inherent, in accordance with the divine creation, in the realities of things. Love is the one means that ensureth true felicity both in this world and the next. Love is the light that guideth in darkness, the living link that uniteth God with man, that assureth the progress of every illumined soul. Love is the most great law that ruleth this mighty and heavenly cycle, the unique power that bindeth together the divers elements of this material world, the supreme magnetic force that directeth the movements of the spheres in the celestial realms. Love revealeth with unfailing and limitless power the mysteries latent in the universe. Love is the spirit of life unto the adorned body of mankind, the establisher of true civilization in this mortal world, and the shedder of imperishable glory upon every high-aiming race and nation…

    O ye beloved of the Lord! Strive to become the manifestations of the love of God, the lamps of divine guidance shining amongst the kindreds of the earth with the light of love and concord.

    All hail to the revealers of this glorious light!”

    -Selections from the Writings of Abdu’l-Baha

    When I was young I believed the world could be my friend, later I discovered the roads I shouldn’t cross .. ”I send you as sheep among wolves..” God said. May my Jewish body rest in a Calvinist church, and my epitaph make for a wiser youth.

    I have loved both of your books. I have no doubts about there being something amazing after death but I wonder if you could shed light on the fact that each soul seems to experience something unique. There is no one Heaven for us all in other words. You had you butterfly. What will be mine I wonder?
    Thank you for sharing your experience. I keep passing your book around friends. Buying more copies!
    With love

    Dear Eben
    Thank you so much for everything you do!
    I agree. I first read an article by Anita Moorjani`s book “Dying to be me” in 2012 and my response was “so it is” not “Is it so?” 🙂
    And later on I read your first book. I don`t need any evidence in just this case. I know it`s all about love.
    Even though first when I were caught in illness myself I begin to talk and also write about “love is all”.
    Before it was too weird for me. I saw myself as a weird person. Now I`m free of that!
    love and gratitude

    Thank you. Fascinating interview. Having just read your book, this interview was a bonus explanation in a language that I understand. I am at the observing stage; I shall try sacred acoustics and begin meditation / prayer. I had a revelation two years ago when I asked God to give me a sign. He certainly did; completely silently; visually and all within an approximate 3 second timeframe. I was the only one who observed it despite others being around. It was immediately after the physical death of my godmother’s husband while I was staying overnight caring for them. It happened in my 59th year. I was awestruck by the light, the colour, the speed, the power, the conclusion. I was wide awake at night looking out to sea at blackness and only this light displayed the horizon, for a second or two, no more. Clouds in a third of my available view were lit in gold and white and purple, a golden spiral like a vortex sped across the sky and the last glimpse was a perfect semicircle on the horizon about a quarter of the size of a setting sun, with clearly defined edges (unlike the sun). It occurred to me that it may have been a meteor strike but none was reported. I live in the Southern hemisphere. It was also instantaneous with a sense of being cocooned by a warm love and my request to God, unspoken except in my mind. Perhaps the vision also occurred in my mind only and was intended only for me. My aetheist mother thinks I am delusional in this and only this respect. I have always had faith in God but became somewhat agnostic as you did until the revelation. I have tried to draw it (I am not an artist) but nothing I try comes close to what I carry in my memory.

    Dear Dr Alexander. I just want to say thank you for sharing your wonderful experience with the world. It definitely brings joy and peace into my life (and my girlfriend’s). I am grateful for all the outstanding work you’ve done. I just read your first book last week, and I purchased The Map Of Heaven 2 days ago. I started to pray again, upon reading Proof Of Heavens. Sincerely, Guy (from Quebec City).

    There is nothing more beautiful than the spiritual world. The fact that you understand the workings of the brain and have an awareness of the after world, demonstrates that you and many others who have experienced this realm are evolving beyond scientific research. God is love. We are love. When we are given a glimpse of the after world, nothing compares to the richness/depth/clarity of our ethereal experience. One can only appreciate the after world, once they have encountered a NDE. What beauty awaits for us in the after world is something to behold. It transcends time and space and takes us to a place which puts us in a state of sheer bliss. It is unfortunate that we have to go through so much pain and suffering to experience such exquisite phenomena. I understand you, completely and with sincerity, Eben. Thank you for sharing your extraordinary and blessed experience with the world. Perhaps, one day, neuroscience will better understand, what compels individuals to do what they do. At times, it feels like one has to make a song and dance to be acknowledged. I’m still here and slowly trying to make progress. I’m certain, given time, that many will come around and reach a level of understanding that we have been honoured to experience. God knows and he understands our mission, Eben. Love and many blessings, Carla
