Welcome to Personality & Spirituality. It’s all about understanding who and what we really are — beyond the personality, to the depths of our innermost being or soul. I’m a psychologist and this is my passion.

The purpose of this website is to be a hub of information, inspiration and occasionally entertainment about who and what we really are — beyond (but including) the personality.

Enjoy! :-)

I don’t often reprint other people’s articles, but this one by Gilbert Ross so inspired me to rethink my understanding of shamanism in today’s world that I immediately requested permission to share it here. The article was originally published on The Mind Unleashed website (11 March 2015):

A dream, awakening, and healing: (3) All shall be well

 

Alex_Grey-Collective_Vision

Collective Vision by Alex Gray (1995) – AlexGray.com

 

On September 8th, 2014, I found myself having a lucid dream.

The dream was evidently orchestrated by some intelligence higher than my own, as I unexpectedly met the group-entity popularly known as “Michael” whose teachings I have been following for the last 15 years or so.

They then proceeded to give me a spiritual initiation — an energetic jump-start known in Hinduism as shaktipat.

At that moment I experienced full-on self-realisation and Kundalini awakening, and my life was transformed.

The Nature of Arguments

Hi all

Many relationships run into arguments, from marital tiffs to inter-ethnic disputes, and everything in-between.

Below is something that came to me today while sitting on the toilet thinking about relationship difficulties (as you do). Having just reread it, I thought it worth sharing.

A dream, awakening, and healing: (2) Living with Kundalini

angel face
— Previously on Personality & Spirituality
In the early hours of 8th September, 2014, I had a lucid dream in which I was aware that I wasn’t merely dreaming. In fact, I was in contact with the Causal plane teaching entity known as Michael, who proceeded to give me a Shaktipat initiation. This not only gave me a full-on experience of Self-Realisation, it also triggered a Kundalini awakening. Now read on.

Me + M.E.

(July 2014)

Ok, this is pretty phenomenal. And I don’t often say that when it’s just about me.

Some of you will know my recent history. I have been badly troubled with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome / M.E. since 2008. It’s a massive depletion of energy, which I’ve described as feeling like a frail 90-year-old with a bad dose of ‘flu.*
* If you want to know more, see my About page.
I had really feared that this was a permanent condition from which I would never recover. It has had a dramatic effect on my life, my work, my family, my income. Also my ability to run this website. It has severely dented my sense of worth as a person, an employee, a man, a father, and a husband.

Dying To Be Me: an incredible NDE

Dying To Be Me NDE

DYING TO BE ME

My Journey from Cancer, to Near Death, to True Healing

by Anita Moorjani

ANITA MOORJANI first came to the world’s attention when her near-death experience (NDE) was highlighted on the NDE Research Foundation website. [1] Her experience is remarkable not only for the life-changing and life-affirming insights she brought back with her, but also for the unprecedented and miraculous healing she underwent immediately afterwards.

In this book, she describes her life prior to that pivotal experience, the illness that almost took her life, the realm she experienced while in a seemingly lifeless coma, and the difference it has made to her life since.
