A few individuals distinguish this
Shift as so transformative, they consider it to be the
heralding of a new species of human, such as John White
and Richard Maurice Bucke, cited below. Both men were
deeply convinced of this "new species"
conception as a result of [in each case] a "cosmic
consciousness experience" -- Bucke at the beginning of the
20th Century and J. White in the 1960s. Some
describe this transformation in terms of 'a new earth and
new heaven', such as David Spangler, Pierre Teilhard de
Chardin, Sri Aurobindo and "The Mother" [Mirra
Alfassa] describe it as a result of long-accustomed lives
as Seers into other-dimensional realities.

Dannion Brinkley, who has also now had at least three core
NDEs, came back 'on fire' from his first near death
experience [pun intended -- it was a lightning strike]
with 117 predictions, that he had 'seen' in the other
world. By the time he published At Peace in the
Light in 1995, he had identified evidence that
convinced him that 95 of these had come true.
"The Beings of Light, however, told me something
important about these revelations, something that shows
the importance of each and every one of us. Here it
There is a great spiritual movement afoot on the
earth. This is a movement that has the power to
change the direction of mankind.
All we have to do is realize that the future is not
written in stone. All of the events that I saw in
my visions and all of the events that seem to be taking
place in the world around us can be altered by group
effort. All we have to do, the Beings told me, is
view ourselves as spiritual beings, living in a
spiritual place, with a spiritual purpose.
The rest will follow.

had such an experience, one result was that

eventually general, would lift the whole of human life to

Satprem, the major
biographer and longtime student of "The Mother" [and
also Sri Aurobindo, her spiritual partner] writes:
The realization of the Vedic rishis has become a collective
one. The Supermind [their word for what they experienced as
the "consciousness-force" that created the Earth and all
its creatures and presumably the Universe] has entered the
earth-consciousness, it has descended right down into the physical
subconscient, to the frontiers of [sacred] Matter. There
remains only one final bridge to cross for the connection to be
the words of The Mother, who passed over in 1973:
new world is born. At present, we are in the midst
of a transitional period in which the two are
intermingled: the old world hangs on, still very
powerful, still controlling the ordinary consciousness,
but the new one is slipping in, so modest and
unobtrusive that externally it doesn't change too much,
for the moment. . . . But it is working, it is
growing, until the day it is strong enough to assert

Regarding the direct relationship Claire Blatchford has experienced with Christ and similar experiences
enjoyed by many, many people:
None of this should surprise us, for more and more today
the veil between the worlds is parting. Heaven and earth, held
apart for so long, seem to be coming together, and there is a new sense
abroad of the nearness of the human and that which is more than
human. The divine, long experienced as distant and inaccessible,
is felt by many to be intimately interwoven in their lives. Many
now speak of experiences in which God, encountered in many shapes and
forms -- Christian, Jewish, Islamic, Hindu and even Buddhist -- is
familiar: a friend or close relation. And if not God, then
angelic beings, guardian angels, saints, risen human beings -- the

passing new-age hype, the next quote comes from almost 2000 years ago, from one of the documents of the Nag Hammadi find in Egypt.
Discovered in 1945, The Gospel of
Thomas [see annotated translation by
Davies], is considered
by some people to be the greatest archaeological find of the last century.
These are the hidden sayings that the living Jesus spoke and that Didymus Judas Thomas wrote down.
And he said: Whoever finds the correct interpretation of these sayings will never die.
Jesus said: The seeker should not stop until he finds.
When he does find, he will be disturbed. After having been disturbed, he will be astonished.
Then he will reign over everything."
At first the above quote from The Gospel of Thomas may not

street lamp went on, but I experienced it as lighting up
inside me. Then I experienced the realization that
everything outside was in me and I was simultaneously
everything outside. (By "I" or
"myself" I mean the ordinary feeling of being a
unique self or feeling of "I." In other words,
the feeling of "I" had not changed, but its
content had been expanded immeasurably.)*
reflecting some years later, these events led to a "conscious surrender to the will
of the universe for me. ... I resolved to live from and
incorporate the knowing my EHEs had given me ... earlier
into the way I actually lived my life. I took the knowings
of my (i.e., our) larger self, which for all of us and
everything is the Same, out of the secret places of my heart
and soul and began using them in my work, in my thinking,
speaking, and writing."
In this way she naturally grew to live totally out of this
new understanding of Reality, this "new"
consciousness, no longer mired in the
limitations and distortions of the old consensus view that
shackles us with a disastrous [materialistic, devoid of
Spirit awareness] worldview depleted of meaning and
the Sacred and leads instead to empty, mechanical,
and poisonous lives.
No longer being trapped in that
perspective is the most liberating, wholeness-making,
healing thing that can happen to anyone. Every time

contribution to the saving grace of that Self we all are

matchless level of freedom of choice -- made consciously out of the fullness of Self
awareness -- and is

of another of the Nag Hammadi documents referred to as "The
Secret Book of John," considered by most interested
scholars to be the quintessential
identifying text of the original Gnostics:
The Secret Book suggests that the

awakening of this spiritual capacity. Instead of
simply telling about the origin of woman, this story,
