Tonight's Main Topic:
The Near Death Experience: Commonalities Among Experiencers - Documentary
Our main topic validated itself through synchronicity, let me explain. Two Thursday's ago I ran across what looked like an interesting video about Near Death Experiences (NDEs) and saved the link to look at later. When I revisited it to watch I kept getting interrupted and so stopped after just a few minutes into it. Later it became clear why I wasn't supposed to watch it that day. The week before tonight's meeting I was waiting and watching for signs for a topic, wondering if it should be this video. As the week moved on, none of the other ideas I thought of felt right. I knew if I just waited and trusted, the guidance for the topic would present itself. Wednesday I sent out a reinforcing intention to the universe intending for something special to appear. On the next morning, Thursday, I received two impassioned emails, one from Vicki L and the other from Kathy T, highly recommending a speaker for our EA meetings. Was this the guidance that I was waiting for? The night before, both of our friends had attended a meeting at Down To Earth and were deeply impressed and moved by the guest speaker, Charmian Redwood. After a doing a little research on her website, this felt right, so I called her and left a message. She called back and was unable to present at tonight's meeting but was willing and able to speak at our July 7th meeting. Great!!!
But what about tonight's meeting? Well finally last Friday I had some time to review the NDE video, the one that I was unable to earlier, to see if it would work for tonight's meeting. In the video they interviewed many people who had Near Death Experiences. Of course I didn't know any of these folks - I thought. During the movie a woman appeared that somehow strangely seemed familiar. Well who do you think it was? Someone I only became aware of and spoke with just the day before. Yep - Charmian Redwood! So if I had been able to view this video a week earlier, when I first tried, I would not have recognized Charmian.
Are our meetings guided through Synchronicity? What do you think? You KNOW what I think!
So after the long of it, here's the short of it: Tonight's another movie night and showing on the Big Wall is the 58 minute documentary -
The Near Death Experience: Commonalities Among Experiencers
Discussed in this movie are 9 experiences that are common in NDEs, one of which is The Life Review. Interestingly, central key concepts shared at Earth Angels play important roles in The Life Review. These are: The Golden Rule, how our actions and words affect others (which in an awakened reality one realizes are us/ourselves) and how we all are truly connected - Oneness! So do we have to learn, understand or accept these essential truths the hard way by having a near death experience or the easy way and CHOOSE to live with this understanding...
And as always, we'll have a relaxed gathering to share some time and space with warm and wonderful people.
Let's get together and feel all right.
