At the start of this year an email landed in my inbox from Janni Lloyd. She contacted me because she has been interested in physical immortality for some time, and she had discovered this blog.
I was pretty excited… it was great to hear from an enthusiastic supporter of physical immortality, and she turned out to be Australian, from the state of Western Australia. Since then we’ve had a phone conversation (that lasted ages) and have kept in touch by email.
Now I’d like to introduce her to you by interviewing her! Continue reading
Superb fairy-wrens (aka blue wrens and superb blue-wrens)
These blue wrens are visiting the mirrored small window beside the front door at my mother’s house, in the country.
Normally they flit around all parts of the house, but at this time of year they get very excited by their reflections in the window, and spend all day there.
Could thinking we are younger make us younger physically and mentally?
This question is discussed in Counterclockwise, a new book by Ellen J. Langer. It’s available now on Amazon, here: Counterclockwise
Dr. Ellen Langer is a professor in the Psychology Department at Harvard University. In 1979, she and 4 graduate students undertook a study where a group of male nursing home residents in their late 70s and early 80s were taken on a week-long retreat, where they were asked to live like it was the year 1959, i.e. 20 years earlier.
The results were startling… the men appeared to become younger.
“Sondra’s ideas are mind blowing and life altering for an entire generation” ~ Marianne Williamson, author of A Return to Love
I’d like to write about Sondra Ray today!
Sondra is a rebirther, trainer, seminar leader and author. She travels extensively throughout the world, training rebirthers and leading personal growth workshops, as well as taking groups to India regularly.
It was through Sondra and her work that I was first introduced to physical immortality, rebirthing and many other healing techniques, and writers such as Louise Hay, Shakti Gawain and Ken Carey, in 1986. All of this brought about huge changes in my life, to put it mildly, for which I am very grateful.

[Update, May 13 – I believe now that these books are entirely fictional, and Spalding did not travel to India at the time described. To me, the message is authentic, as it is consistent with information from other sources.]
I’ve just re-read volume 1 from the set of 6 books, Life And Teaching Of The Masters Of The Far East, by Baird T Spalding, for the first time in 22 years, and was blown away by it.
Baird T Spalding was a geophysicist and mining engineer, born 1857, who travelled a lot doing geological surveys, and he and a party of fellow American scientists spent over 3 years traveling with immortal masters in India and thereabouts, from 1894.
