Who is Ernest L. Norman?

Posted on November 9, 2016

One of my blog readers from India recently asked, “Who is Ernest L. Norman?” I thought I’d share an expanded version of my reply here, since he’s such an important figure in my life, my writing, and my future. If you caught an earlier version of this post, I’ve now had to replace it after a hacker attack destroyed it. Visionaries on this planet still attract opposition, apparently.

Ernest L. Norman (1904–1971) was an author and visionary scientist who described in his books an interdimensional science of life that was far ahead of its time in the 1950s and 60s. His books still contain gems yet to be discovered, answering so many of the big questions, while much is now accepted by conventional science. And none of what he’s written has been disproved. So far, he’s on the winning team and I’m betting on him. But not because he was correct so many times. Because in my personal experience, I’ve validated his science over and over and over again.

Among many other things, his teachings encompassed a more sophisticated view of reincarnation: how it works bio-energetically, the purpose of personal evolution through repeated incarnations, the science of consciousness that supports it, as well as how we can overcome its burdens personally to improve our future outcomes.

Visionary Prodigy

In his books, he also takes up many of the “mysteries” or dilemmas we face in the modern world by explaining and unraveling the energy principles involved. His theories are based on a back-and-forth flow between dimensions, and the eternity of information storage and replay that this flow supplies, guided by basic energy principles. He favored a scientific explanation for everything, yet the scientists of the world during his lifetime did not recognize his work because he did not possess their credentials. He was not an insider. He was a self-taught prodigy, a polymath.

In his early years, he accomplished many amazing feats, including a conversation on a rainy afternoon in Utah during which he explained to a complete stranger how to build a cathode ray tube. That young man was  Philo T. Farnsworth, who capitalized on the information and built one, soon patenting the first successful electronic television device.

His premise of life and its purpose, which I have studied for forty-two years, has never failed to prove itself out in my daily observations of energy, life, healing, nature, and society. I have freed myself from many social and career scrapes using his energy principles, and also from many internal psychological traumas imposed by my trek through lifetime after lifetime.

Evergreen Textbooks for the Future

He wrote seventeen to twenty books (depending on how you count them), most of which are still available as new or used books via online sources such as Amazon.com. The primary text for learning is The Infinite Concept of Cosmic Creation.

The most popular place to start reading his work is The Voice of Venus. That is the first of a series called The Pulse of Creation, which takes you on a wild and beautiful tour of other planes of existence, all the while explaining how these things exist and why, and where you fit into the big picture—and why. I love those books! Once you learn of these places, you may find yourself visiting while you sleep. Or—like me in my own novel, Cosmic Dancer, looking for ways to introduce them to others.

Every week I learn of some new credentialed researcher or area of endeavor that proves what I began reading decades ago in this man’s books. I still read and learn from them. He predicted, accurately, that his books would be for future generations because they were overshadowed and inspired by Advanced Minds working through him to enlighten humanity. They are evergreen in that sense. When I re-read, they always show me something I missed before. But I believe that all books are living creations, so the consciousness behind them, which is always either evolving or devolving, matters greatly. Therefore if you have a choice, read the best, written by the best. How could I find anything better than these, then? And I have not.

Never Wanted to Attract a Following

Though extremely private and humble, a man who never wanted to create a following or establish an “ism,” as he called it, Ernest Norman nevertheless attracted a small group of individuals who discovered his books during his lifetime.

His wife, Ruth E. Norman, managed to self-publish and promote his writings when that was an unknown thing to do, from 1954 through the early 1990s. She established a nonprofit educational foundation and school that gave students of his work a place to study during her lifetime. Although I never met Ernest Norman personally (I didn’t stumble across his books until four years after his death), I became her student in 1975. She served as my second most important spiritual teacher, enhancing my life through her example of how to apply and live the energy principles I’d been studying through her late husband’s books. I remained close to her until the time of her departure from Earth in 1993. At that time, others took over her spiritual school and have since turned it into something that no longer resembles the place I studied, so I remain an independent fan.

Because of her efforts, many people globally have been fortunate to discover Ernest Norman’s unrecognized genius. In fact, his books are now widely available from used booksellers online because a grateful, anonymous donor had them printed and gave them away to libraries, which often dropped them unread into book-sale bins. You might also find various groups that have sprung up in his honor, each of them sharing some bits and pieces of his work online, and all of them interpreting it differently. I think the best way to know what Ernest Norman taught is to read it in his own words.

Speed Your Evolution!

As with Tesla and other pioneers, Ernest Norman’s name might not be recognized for decades to come, but you can zoom ahead. Consider his universal energy principles and test them out in your daily encounters with the craziness of this world. It’s not so crazy after all, when you put it under that microscope and expand your view to include your existence as a multi-dimensional, eternal, intelligent Being on a journey of self-development.

What Does It Mean When a Beetle Lands in Your Hair?

Posted on July 17, 2015

A Figeater beetle landed in my hair

A little Messenger in the garden has graced me with his (or her) wisdom three times now, over the course of three days of lunching en plein air with Joseph. Not so little, actually. She’s a glittering, iridescent green, Figeater beetle, loud as a lawnmower, and she has insisted on landing in my hair while I’m eating. Which means she’d become a totem for me, my beetle totem.

The third time she landed, she stayed so long Joseph was able to grab the camera for her closeups. I finally had to urge her gently away because lunch was over. I will admit, I kept asking Joseph, “What is she doing? Is she leaving anything behind?!?”

Yes, she was. A message that I should be the one leaving things behind.

Figeater Beetle close up in hairThis San Diego beetle is so large, she kept tugging the hair at the top of my head as she explored at my shoulder. I did happen to be eating one of Joseph’s breakfast puddings with figs and chocolate in it, but she wasn’t interested in that. I’ve read that these beetles, related to Egyptian scarabs, aren’t interested in fresh fruit. They like the stuff that’s already decomposing. (Good news for Joseph’s pudding, which was delicious, of course!)

So what could I do but look up the meaning of this close animal encounter in the trusty Animal-Speak Pocket Guide. When a creature gets right in your face, or exhibits unusual behavior in a way that definitely says, “Hey! I’m talking to you,” it’s wise to pay attention. One of your Cosmic CoAuthors is trying to reach you and you’re not getting it. Time to send in the animal totem!

Subtle Energy Depletion: A Healer’s Bane

Posted on June 29, 2015

Here’s how it happens:

The “Healer” opens her consciousness to the Infinite, the Universe, Source, God, with the intention of serving humanity. Or maybe just a single human. She fills herself with the Light energy that pours in. She is the empty vessel.

The Infinite overflows into her being, like water pouring out after a dam has broken. The Healer seeks this inflow as greedily as we seek water when thirsty, but the Infinite also requires the Healer. The Healer offers the negative pole in the electrical system, the deficit. The Infinite offers the positive pole, the surfeit. Energy, all up and down the frequency spectrum, from dimension to dimension, from pole to pole, from human to human, flows according to this pattern.

They connect, the Healer and Infinite Intelligence. The power flows, and the charge reverses.

Exploding Biofield Transformation

Posted on February 24, 2015

Sometimes when you do a lot of energy work, breaking old habit patterns, those energies need a place to go. E=MC² right? Energy is not destroyed, only transformed. My biofield tuning this month was exceptionally intense, involving my third session with author Eileen McKusick (Tuning the Human Biofield), followed by an amazing two-day class with others likewise devoted to learning her techniques. That’s a lot of tuning fork resonance to absorb and digest!

So when I accidentally dropped a Corelle® “break-resistant” plate on the kitchen tile this morning …

KA-BAM!

Explosions of glassy white stuff went everywhere! Into the dining area! Under the stove! Wedged into the grill at the bottom of the fridge! Out into the entryway! Beneath the china cabinet! On top of the counter and the granite-covered kitchen island! Tiny shards, and lots of powdery sparkly stuff I’ll need to mop carefully. Whew. Those old plates are indeed the kind that don’t break—they burst!

I had no trouble instantly relating this to the topic much on my mind this morning: My fear of going out into the world to be seen and heard as an author, publisher, teacher, and speaker. I needed to explode that resistance, which was brought to my awareness in a big way during my biofield tuning.

Eileen’s tuning forks revealed a large, thick, bubble-like energy construction in my biofield. She tagged it to specific times in my life—from childhood right up through the present. As she worked with me, my spirit guides up and down the spectrum made their presence known. They’d come to help dismantle this protective shield that was no longer serving me. In fact, it had become a big blockade. Even my deceased mother showed up in the room to add her two bits!

Accio Wands! The Holidays Are Upon Us!

Posted on November 28, 2014

The holidays are upon us and it’s time for my favorite story: The Blue Wand-Bearers. I first read about this higher-frequency, energetic, universal, spiritual event when I was in my early twenties. Bringing it back to mind has become an important part of my annual winter contemplation ever since.

This completely non-denominational event is not an earth-based celebration, but it profoundly effects all living things on Earth. Those who benefit most, however, are those who open their hearts and minds at this time of year with a gracious thought toward the well-being of others, or a moment of awe, or a gasp of insight, or a sudden upwelling of L-O-V-E for all things great and small.

Gathered in ceremony in the higher planes where Light rules, countless Beings await Earth’s season of receptivity. To understand what they’re about, you must first contemplate who they are, and what their life’s purpose is.

Unlike us, they no longer live in physical bodies. For many, their transition to life in higher-frequency worlds came long ago, although some among this particular gathering are relatively “recent” arrivals. You would recognize their names, perhaps, because they, like you, previously lived and evolved on planet Earth (and elsewhere). They may have graduated completely from the need for physical incarnations, or they might simply be enjoying a lengthy hiatus in these beautiful, crystalline-appearing worlds of pure energy before they reincarnate again on a physical planet, undoubtedly to carry out some personal, spiritual purpose. Because if they are participating in this ceremony, they are not young souls. These are the Beings who provide the energy-fuel for our world and others like it by translating the Universal Source energy through their Mind-selves, stepping down the high, high frequencies of Infinite Intelligence (God energy) into forms that we on Earth find useful and life-giving.

Light Being

This by the way is our own spiritual potential, a higher grade of humanity that we are perfectly designed to attain if we so choose and apply ourselves to that objective.

Over my years of enjoying this story, I finally realized that even one such as I, lower on the scale of evolution, can play a role in this annual ceremony of Light.

First, and most importantly, by my awareness and receptivity, which doesn’t require any knowledge at all of the details of the event. We will receive from the higher dimensions, if we reach a peak moment of mental energy.

But secondly, if we consciously recall what’s taking place in the invisible or “subtle” energy fields of Earth and the humans who inhabit it during this lengthy winter solstice transition, we might become participants in this annual ceremony.
