The Finger Lakes Chapter
of the American Society of Dowsers
presents Dr. P. M. H. Atwater L.H.D. – The “Mind Mirror Project”
The talk will be about the Mind Mirror Project once engaged in by the American Society of Dowsers, and written up in The American Dowser Digest, February, 1983. Dr. Edith Jurka, M.D., Diplomat of the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology, conducted tests on brainwave patterns of seven gifted dowsers on a sophisticated electroencephalograph called the “Mind Mirror.” Her testing showed that dowsers when in the “dowsing mode” had wide amplitude beta and delta voltages with an alpha peak. Yet she also found that this unusual pattern could be found with dowsers not only while performing their dowsing skill, but also during normal conversation. She referred to this as the “Fifth State” pattern.
Today, we know so much more about this fifth state pattern and about Gamma Brainwaves (the higher state past Beta). Judith Pennington has gone on to do remarkable things with Mind Mirror research. What she and others have found touches on and effects every dowser, every near-death experiencer, everyone who has undergone a transformation of consciousness (no matter the cause). This talk covers not only the Fifth State Brainwave pattern and what it implies (wide awake while sound asleep), but also synesthesia (multiple sensing) and electrical sensitivity. Bring note paper. You’ll want to write a lot of things down, especially about electrical sensitivity during storms and such.
P. M. H. Atwater, L.H.D. is one of the original researchers in the field of near-death studies, having begun her work in 1978. She has written sixteen books on the subject. “Near-Death Experiences: The Rest of the Story” wraps up her early work with over 4,000 adult and child experiencers of near-death states, while further exploring her theory about transformations of consciousness, a theory she first began to investigate in 1966 back in her home state of Idaho. Some of her findings in the near-death field have been verified in clinical studies, among them the prospective study done in Holland and published in Lancet Medical Journal, 12-15-01. Her “The Big Book of Near-Death Experiences” brought the entire field of near-death studies up-to-date worldwide, and was featured in an online version of Newsweek Magazine; her “The New Children and Near-States States” presented new findings about child experiencers. “Dying to Know You: Proof of God in the Near-Death Experience” stands alone as a major summary of thousands of experiencer voices – their words, their truth, their wisdom.
In 2005, she was awarded the Outstanding Service Award from the International Association For Near-Death Studies (IANDS), and the Lifetime Achievement Award from the National Association of Transpersonal Hypnotherapists (NATH), as well as an honorary Ph.D. from a school in Sri Lanka. In 2010, she was also awarded the Nancy E. Bush Award for Literary Excellence and the Lifetime Achievement and Special Services Award, both from IANDS. She has presented her findings for many organizations and schools, including twice at the United Nations, and as a guest on such TV shows as Geraldo, Regis and Kathie Lee, Larry King Live, Sally Jessy Raphael, and Entertainment Tonight. She has been a guest on hundreds of radio shows, including several with George Noory, and one with Art Bell. Her books have been published in over 12 countries. In April 2018, she won the 2017 Silver Nautilus Award in honor of her recent book “A Manual for Developing Humans” – for offering a potent and powerful message for today’s world.
A generational researcher as well, she summarized the changes now occurring in the human race in “Children of the Fifth World: A Guide to the Coming Changes in Human Consciousness” and “Beyond the Indigo Children“. Her own story as an experiencer of near-death states – “I Died Three Times in 1977 – The Complete Story” – is available at Amazon.com. She became a researcher in the field of near-death studies because of what she was told to do during her third NDE, by a voice she came to call The Voice Like None Other. That Voice also told her to write three specific books. The first was not named (could have been “Coming Back to Life”), the second is “Future Memory,” the third “A Manual for Developing Humans” (which recently won the Silver Nautilus Award). A prayer chaplain, visionary counselor, wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, her website is filled with many services and features, among them The Marketplace – where near-death experiencers and those like them can promote their products and services without any charge to them. Her monthly newsletters are free to those who sign up on www.pmhatwater.com. To explore her visionary/intuitive talents access “Sessions” on her website. A major study of the smallest NDE experiencers is now in progress.
An evening full of wonders! See you on Thursday! … And there is more, see below!
Schedule for the meeting:
6:00 to 6:30 – Sign-in and Dowser sharing of techniques (If you are new to dowsing request help with basic techniques during this time period)
6:30 – Short business meeting
Presentation will follow the business meeting.
Refreshments: We’d welcome it if you’d like to bring a snack to share with the group. Please remember that we need to haul out everything that we bring in, so if you bring something to share please take any leftovers home with you. Thanks in advance!
Fundraising: At every meeting, we offer a “New-to-You” donation table of books and dowsing/metaphysical related objects (think crystals, stones, divination cards, etc.) that are no longer useful to you personally but might be of interest to other chapter members. Meeting participants can then purchase these items from the chapter for a donation. Please bring anything you’d like to give away and we will have a table where we can shop for the benefit of the chapter.
Also check out the “BOOK BABE” a.k.a. Leola’s page. You will find lots of information about dowsing.
Upstate NY IANDS Group Events
Dr. Atwater will have two additional events on Friday night 5/18@6:30PM and on Saturday morning 5/19@10:00AM through 2:30PM at the North Syracuse Community Center for the for the Upstate NY IANDS Group.
Friday 5/18@6:30PM – This program is called “Glimpses of Beyond.” It consists of selections from the book Dying to Know You: Proof of God in the Near-Death Experience given by Dr. Atwater, as a PowerPoint shows on screen 40 drawings done by adult and child near-death experiencers in six countries. There is no sound to the drawings. On the bottom of each drawing is the individual’s name, the age when they died, and what killed them.
The book Dying to Know You is really the “people’s book” – nothing else like it anywhere – as it is a summary of the words/voices of nearly 5,000 adult and child near-death experiencers – their words, their wisdom, their thoughts about what they learned from dying and coming back. Yes, there is a little bit of research in it and a few cases, but that’s it. Everything else is a summary of all those voices, the people speaking for themselves, experiencers claiming their experience, what they saw, what they learned, what they now know. The people’s book is just that, presented in a straight-forward way. A question/answer session will follow the presentation.
Saturday 5/19@10:00AM through ~2:30PM (there will be a lunch break of about 30 minutes. Bring your own lunch) – Program in the morning. She will present a PowerPoint rendition of the 28 thought-form drawings in the book, A Manual for Developing Humans. This PowerPoint runs one hour. During that time she will speak about that sense of “mission” many of us have, what we are here to do, and share some of the stories of a few near-death experiencers, including herself. More personal, as the Manual is the third book she was told to write during her third near-death experience. She had three in three months in 1977, later that year she also had three relapses. The Manual is the most important book she has ever written. During this sharing you will learn why and you will also learn who/what is The Voice Like None Other who spoke to her during that third episode. Future Memory, by the way, is the second book she was told to write. Never was she told the title to the first book.
The afternoon is devoted to some fun and surprising exercises from the Manual, learning more about what is in it and encourage sharing from others. The last part is devoted to a discussion about the coming times for our country, some of the major changes ahead of us and dates.
