Type of Spiritual Experience
Dr Shafica Karagulla, born in the Lebanon but whose research took her to the USA and the UK, was a neuro-psychiatrist who spent eight years researching ordinary people who appeared to have extraordinary abilities. She started off being a skeptic as most scientists are [including me] but over time the evidence seemed overwhelming and she set up a research project to find out more. What brought her into the area was a book about Edgar Cayce, what kept her going was an open mind and an insatiable curiosity. Where she is remarkable is that she had no experiences of her own to confirm her eventual conclusions, but like all the very best scientists forgot her own life and concentrated on the observations and evidence.
Her research subjects were carefully chosen. She rejected all those who claimed they had these abilities but instead by a laborious process of enquiry and referral managed to find those who carried on normal professions and who never talked about their abilities but just used them.
A description of the experience
Breakthrough to Creativity – Dr Shafica Karagulla
Paul found that he could tune in on any installation in the plant and see the parts and how they worked. This was a peculiar experience. He was clearly aware of being physically present at his desk
in his office but also at the same time being present in another place looking at and comprehending some complicated mechanism. He had never known that he could do this until the urgent need at the conference table apparently triggered the ability.
He discovered that he could do other mental gymnastics.
When he wanted to find his way around the large area of several square miles where he worked, he could mentally soar high over the area. As he did this he could see how all the buildings were arranged and spot the best route to take in order to get to his destination in the shortest time. He began to use this faculty as a matter of everyday experience.
