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.

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.

Past Life Awareness May Have Saved His Life

Posted on March 27, 2015

In my book, Speed Your Evolution, I suggest that even if you can’t relate to it at the present moment, you shouldn’t completely discard past life information that comes to you from an outside or untested source (say, a psychic reader or a hypnotic regression, neither of which are as reliable as your own inner knowing). Keep it in a back pocket. Decades from now, it might save your life. Ask Roberto Gaetan, aka author Robert Maxxim.

I heard Roberto’s story online and asked if he’d be willing to share it with my blog readers. He graciously agreed and sent me the following:

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!

Tuning *MY* Human Biofield

Posted on October 18, 2014

Eileen's book coverEileen McKusick’s exciting new book represents the pioneering forefront of the new bio-electric science that will soon profoundly affect how we go about healing the human body.

Joseph and I were fortunate to snag healing sessions (two for me, one for him) from one of the innovators in this field, sound therapist Eileen McKusick, author of the recently released Tuning the Human Biofield.

I won’t speak for him, but I will say that I was stunned, illuminated, and profoundly affected by the results of my bio-tune-up. My life is taking a dramatic turn for the better as the effects are still resonating with me. I’ll give you some details in a moment, but first an overview of the principles that made this happen.

Remember, I am an Eden Energy Medicine (EEM) practitioner and I frequently write about the human energy anatomy from both the EEM and the Ernest L. Norman (ELN) perspectives. One treats primarily the local energy systems (EEM); the other affects the entire interdimensional human biofield, what we might term the Extended Biofield (ELN calls this the psychic anatomy).

The moment I saw Eileen’s book, which unbeknownst to me was the first day of its release, I knew (a) I had to meet this author and (b) I wanted to book an appointment for her tuning-fork facilitated sound therapy. That is so rare for me! I am uncomfortable with even the most highly skilled EEM practitioners working on me, and was never able to relax into someone’s Reiki or other healing touch therapies. Moreover, Eileen lives in Vermont and I live in San Diego, opposite ends of the country. Nevertheless, I knew I would meet her. I was absolutely confident. And within days, I discovered that she was coming to San Diego imminently!

Quick work and I had an appointment, despite Eileen’s hectic schedule of speaking and attending conferences. She would be staying at the home of Cristina Smith, who has facilitated so many of my happy Subtle Energy community experiences in San Diego in recent years (Lessons from the Labyrinth). I felt no fear, reluctance or resistance to this kind of sound treatment—only excitement to become part of the future-science on this planet, which will do so much in the future to alleviate human suffering.
