METAPHYSICS + HOLLYWOOD = META-CON™

“Only with a gathering like this can we combine our resources, storytelling, powers and abilities to generate massive change for the betterment of humanity and the entire planet.”

Hello Everyone!
Lisa Rhyne here to start getting the word out about my annual META-CON Expo that’ll be held in Los Angeles, CA. Here is a really broad overview of my META-CON.

META-CON is an annual convention based in Los Angeles, California featuring the greatest scientific minds, masters of metaphysics and largest most powerful entertainment entities in the world all together in one place. It is where the supernatural superstars, leading scientific visionaries, and evolved conscious creators and the entertainment industry come together. We need empowered storytellers creating meaningful content that will change the world for the better. 

Think of it like: Comic-Con, TED Talks, Burning Man and major film festivals combined…only more advanced and integrated with the rapidly evolving new tech – especially virtual reality and augmented reality. All these elements together for the first time in a new symbiotic presentation in an environment that is entertaining and transformational.

Timing is everything. Supernatural-themed entertainment as well as “transformational festivals” (i.e. like Burning Man just to name one) are at an unprecedented all-time high…for a very valid reason. Right now there is now a rapidly expanding high demand for alternative products and services designed to enhance health, increase prosperity, improve quality of life, and overall well-being and empowerment. There is an increased need and demand to protect intellectual property and prevent Internet piracy globally. This event brings together unique and sometimes hard to find experts, products and services under one roof along with entertainment that caters to richly diverse demographics hungry for this type of event.

Many huge corporations are looking to back women-owned businesses and are ideal anchor sponsors of this event in addition to entities like major studios (i.e. Netflix, Disney, Amazon, etc.). Also, the leading institutes/companies for metaphysical/supernatural/evolutionary/ancient wisdom technologies and the like (i.e. Institute of Noetic Sciences, The Monroe Institute, MindValley, Centerpointe Research Institute, MindValley, Hay House, Elephant Journal, etc.) and many others including very high profile entertainers who are interested in metaphysics (and have millions of fans/followers to promote this event).

Major studios have threatened to pull out of future Comic-Con events and/or reduce their participation with many other live events chiefly to protect their intellectual property content among other reasons. With the changes in the world due to the COVID pandemic, we had to postpone this live META-CON event. We believe the time to develop it and produce it is NOW.

Our exhibitors and presenters will cover everything from the most ancient healing traditions and spiritual practices to the utmost cutting edge of science, tech and metaphysics – innovative and independent-thinking experts in all the relevant fields of healing, rejuvenation, conscious/green living, visionary art, music, television, new media, AR/VR mixed reality and filmmaking.

Features include: Featured speakers, lectures, brainstorming interactive sessions, exhibitor booths, exclusive screenings of films, streaming, cable/internet shows, live entertainment and much more!

Strength in numbers! With this great gathering of the most powerful metaphysical manifesting masters in this world (and from other realms) together with the entertainment industry, we will create massive positive change. Only with a gathering like this can we combine our resources, storytelling, powers and abilities to generate massive change for the betterment of humanity and the entire planet.

Welcome to META-CON, The Great Gathering!

There will be much more as I start actively collaborating with all the various parties involved. If you’d like to be involved or know of someone who you’d like to see as a featured presenter, please email us!

THE “METAPHYSICAL” REAWAKENING TO THE METAVERSE

Mark Zuckerberg announced on October 28, 2021, the changing of his Facebook company’s name from Facebook to…META. Facebook changed its company name to Meta to distance itself from mounting scandals: Zuckerberg layed out new ‘metaverse’ vision at a recent developers event.

Changing the name of the company doesn’t change the actions, policies and deception committed by that company. And someone like him using this universal term “meta” now does a lot of things on countless levels.

META is becoming more and more into the collective consciousness of the entire planet. Even “low vibers” are resonating with “meta”/”metaphysics”.

All my life I’ve tracked and operated unusually with time in my own way and most of the time I’m “out of synch” with the so called reality/times. Sometimes it takes minutes, sometimes years for something to catch up, synch then manifest into the world just as my visions revealed.

I’ve been using “metaphysical” and “meta” for years now. I don’t like labels and especially the useless and most derogatory current “woo woo” ones. I’ve never referred to myself as a “psychic” although I fully demonstrate those inferred abilities daily. I started referring to myself as a “Meta” many many years ago because it easily encapsulates all of who and what I am.

So who knows…perhaps my creating all these Meta products, companies, brands has just been me manifesting things outside of time and now everything is showing up in this version of the Metaverse. 

“As a “Meta” I am fully out of the Metaphysical Closet and working to disseminate true and accurate information of the wide variety of metaphysical aspects. I diligently work and speak up for people like me so that we may all come out of the “Metaphysical Closet” to live, work and thrive in the Light.”

MY METAPHYSICAL WORKS…

Below is a list of my various brands, phrases, products and companies that have always included “meta” in some form.

01

THE METAPHYSICAL CLOSET™

I coined the phrase: Metaphysical Closet decades ago and something I’ve used for years. I’ve written online and even wrote about it in my book, JOURNEY OF A DREAM MASTER, that I published in 2016.

It is where most people with supernatural, magical, paranormal, extraordinary abilities, energy healers, psychics, mediums, etc. still reside due to the still prevalent witch hunts and discrimination against us.

02

META-CON™

I founded META-CON many years ago and own that trademark. This has been put on hold due to the pandemic. It will be an annual live expo, (along with Websites, Apps, etc.)

META-CON, is an annual live and virtual/augmented reality convention featuring the greatest living masters of metaphysics, Shamanism and ancient knowledge along with entertainment entities and storytellers creating evolved entertainment all focused on expanding and uplifting global consciousness.

03

META-MATE™

This company is an exclusive company that provides an online dating website, apps and live events specifically for people interested in metaphysical, supernatural, paranormal, fringe science, alternative healing, Shamans, medicine people, etc.

04

THE META-MOVEMENT™

I also coined the phrase “Meta-Movement” used to describe how people with metaphysical abilities are stepping into their power and into the light to live authentically out of the metaphorical metaphysical closet. 

05

METATATIONS™

Metaphysical Meditations – Sequential series of highly specialized guided meditations that incorporate unique specific hypnotic and NLP language, various light to deep trance techniques, visuals and specifically scientifically engineered music combined with various AR/VR mixed reality.

THE MAN WHO WROTE “THE HOLOGRAPHIC UNIVERSE”
(AND why it is a must-read)

Michael Talbot

Michael Coleman Talbot


(September 29, 1953 – May 27, 1992)

Throughout his life, Michael Talbot experienced psychic, paranormal events and this helped shape his destiny and writings.

As a boy, he was the subject (and possibly the source) of a poltergeist haunting that performed such “miracles” as raining gravel from the sky and throwing furniture around the house, even causing small wounds to appear on Talbot’s arms and legs.

In Beyond the Quantum, Michael Talbot hypothesized how interior experience manifests in the outside world. He thought one of his major contributions to the understanding of paranormal, fringe phenomena was the notion of psychoid reality, a state of being between physical and mental and influenceable by both.

In several books, including Mysticism and the New Physics as well as one specifically called The Holographic Universe, Talbot gave a highly developed exposition of the notions of the holographic model and of morphogenetic fields.

Michael Talbot died in 1992 from Leukemia at the age of 39. Seems to me that he entered this world, simply did what he came here to do and then left. Still, I along with many others feel he was gone far too soon and we can only dream of what further insights he could’ve contributed to mankind. 

Fortunately, you can still purchase his books online (i.e. Amazon) and find them in libraries.


“The Holographic Universe” is one of the most important books ever written and is a must-read for anyone interested in evolving beyond outdated paradigms. 

Strong statement? Read it and see why I say this. I’m fairly certain you’ll wholeheartedly agree. This wonderful man also wrote some other truy inspiring and thought provoking works which I also highly recommend in addition to The Holographic Universe (pictured are 2 of the various covers this book has had over the years). 

In addition to his books, I found an early article written by Michael on the topic of the holographic universe. Interestingly, this has also shown up on the internet as “author unknown.” I’ve shared it below because there is some fascinating revelations and thoughts on this topic.

His work has shaped my life and my work in immeasurable ways and I’m truly beyond grateful. 

Once you read this book…your life will never be the same. Your understanding and beliefs about what is “real” and what is possible will evolve by leaps and bounds.

 

 


The Universe as a Hologram
by Michael Talbot


Does Objective Reality Exist, or is the Universe a Phantasm?

Michael Talbot

In 1982 a remarkable event took place. At the University of Paris a research team led by physicist Alain Aspect performed what may turn out to be one of the most important experiments of the 20th century. You did not hear about it on the evening news. In fact, unless you are in the habit of reading scientific journals you probably have never even heard Aspect’s name, though there are some who believe his discovery may change the face of science.

Aspect and his team discovered that under certain circumstances subatomic particles such as electrons are able to instantaneously communicate with each other regardless of the distance separating them. It doesn’t matter whether they are 10 feet or 10 billion miles apart. Somehow each particle always seems to know what the other is doing. The problem with this feat is that it violates Einstein’s long-held tenet that no communication can travel faster than the speed of light. Since traveling faster than the speed of light is tantamount to breaking the time barrier, this daunting prospect has caused some physicists to try to come up with elaborate ways to explain away Aspect’s findings.

But it has inspired others to offer even more radical explanations. University of London physicist David Bohm, for example, believes Aspect’s findings imply that objective reality does not exist, that despite its apparent solidity the universe is at heart a phantasm, a gigantic and splendidly detailed hologram. 
To understand why Bohm makes this startling assertion, one must first understand a little about holograms. A hologram is a three-dimensional photograph made with the aid of a laser. To make a hologram, the object to be photographed is first bathed in the light of a laser beam. Then a second laser beam is bounced off the reflected light of the first and the resulting interference pattern (the area where the two laser beams commingle) is captured on film. When the film is developed, it looks like a meaningless swirl of light and dark lines. But as soon as the developed film is illuminated by another laser beam, a three-dimensional image of the original object appears.

The three-dimensionality of such images is not the only remarkable characteristic of holograms. If a hologram of a rose is cut in half and then illuminated by a laser, each half will still be found to contain the entire image of the rose. Indeed, even if the halves are divided again, each snippet of film will always be found to contain a smaller but intact version of the original image. Unlike normal photographs, every part of a hologram contains all the information possessed by the whole.

The “whole in every part” nature of a hologram provides us with an entirely new way of understanding organization and order. For most of its history, Western science has labored under the bias that the best way to understand a physical phenomenon, whether a frog or an atom, is to dissect it and study its respective parts. A hologram teaches us that some things in the universe may not lend themselves to this approach. If we try to take apart something constructed holographically, we will not get the pieces of which it is made, we will only get smaller wholes.

This insight suggested to Bohm another way of understanding Aspect’s discovery. Bohm believes the reason subatomic particles are able to remain in contact with one another regardless of the distance separating them is not because they are sending some sort of mysterious signal back and forth, but because their separateness is an illusion. He argues that at some deeper level of reality such particles are not individual entities, but are actually extensions of the same fundamental something.

To enable people to better visualize what he means, Bohm offers the following illustration. Imagine an aquarium containing a fish. Imagine also that you are unable to see the aquarium directly and your knowledge about it and what it contains comes from two television cameras, one directed at the aquarium’s front and the other directed at its side. As you stare at the two television monitors, you might assume that the fish on each of the screens are separate entities. After all, because the cameras are set at different angles, each of the images will be slightly different. But as you continue to watch the two fish, you will eventually become aware that there is a certain relationship between them. When one turns, the other also makes a slightly different but corresponding turn; when one faces the front, the other always faces toward the side. If you remain unaware of the full scope of the situation, you might even conclude that the fish must be instantaneously communicating with one another, but this is clearly not the case.

This, says Bohm, is precisely what is going on between the subatomic particles in Aspect’s experiment. According to Bohm, the apparent faster-than-light connection between subatomic particles is really telling us that there is a deeper level of reality we are not privy to, a more complex dimension beyond our own that is analogous to the aquarium. And, he adds, we view objects such as subatomic particles as separate from one another because we are seeing only a portion of their reality. Such particles are not separate “parts”, but facets of a deeper and more underlying unity that is ultimately as holographic and indivisible as the previously mentioned rose. And since everything in physical reality is composed of these “eidolons,” the universe is itself a projection, a hologram.

In addition to its phantom-like nature, such a universe would possess other rather startling features. If the apparent separateness of subatomic particles is illusory, it means that at a deeper level of reality all things in the universe are infinitely interconnected.The electrons in a carbon atom in the human brain are connected to the subatomic particles that comprise every salmon that swims, every heart that beats, and every star that shimmers in the sky. Everything interpenetrates everything, and although human nature may seek to categorize and pigeonhole and subdivide, the various phenomena of the universe, all apportionments are of necessity artificial and all of nature is ultimately a seamless web.

In a holographic universe, even time and space could no longer be viewed as fundamentals. Because concepts such as location break down in a universe in which nothing is truly separate from anything else, time and three-dimensional space, like the images of the fish on the TV monitors, would also have to be viewed as projections of this deeper order. At its deeper level reality is a sort of superhologram in which the past, present, and future all exist simultaneously. This suggests that given the proper tools it might even be possible to someday reach into the superholographic level of reality and pluck out scenes from the long-forgotten past.

What else the superhologram contains is an open-ended question. Allowing, for the sake of argument, that the superhologram is the matrix that has given birth to everything in our universe, at the very least it contains every subatomic particle that has been or will be — every configuration of matter and energy that is possible, from snowflakes to quasars, from blue whales to gamma rays. It must be seen as a sort of cosmic storehouse of “All That Is.”

Although Bohm concedes that we have no way of knowing what else might lie hidden in the superhologram, he does venture to say that we have no reason to assume it does not contain more. Or as he puts it, perhaps the superholographic level of reality is a “mere stage” beyond which lies “an infinity of further development”.

Bohm is not the only researcher who has found evidence that the universe is a hologram. Working independently in the field of brain research, Stanford neurophysiologist Karl Pribram has also become persuaded of the holographic nature of reality. Pribram was drawn to the holographic model by the puzzle of how and where memories are stored in the brain. For decades numerous studies have shown that rather than being confined to a specific location, memories are dispersed throughout the brain.

In a series of landmark experiments in the 1920s, brain scientist Karl Lashley found that no matter what portion of a rat’s brain he removed he was unable to eradicate its memory of how to perform complex tasks it had learned prior to surgery. The only problem was that no one was able to come up with a mechanism that might explain this curious “whole in every part” nature of memory storage.

Then in the 1960s Pribram encountered the concept of holography and realized he had found the explanation brain scientists had been looking for. Pribram believes memories are encoded not in neurons, or small groupings of neurons, but in patterns of nerve impulses that crisscross the entire brain in the same way that patterns of laser light interference crisscross the entire area of a piece of film containing a holographic image. In other words, Pribram believes the brain is itself a hologram.

Pribram’s theory also explains how the human brain can store so many memories in so little space. It has been estimated that the human brain has the capacity to memorize something on the order of 10 billion bits of information during the average human lifetime (or roughly the same amount of information contained in five sets of the Encyclopedia Britannica).

Similarly, it has been discovered that in addition to their other capabilities, holograms possess an astounding capacity for information storage–simply by changing the angle at which the two lasers strike a piece of photographic film, it is possible to record many different images on the same surface. It has been demonstrated that one cubic centimeter of film can hold as many as 10 billion bits of information.

Our uncanny ability to quickly retrieve whatever information we need from the enormous store of our memories becomes more understandable if the brain functions according to holographic principles. If a friend asks you to tell him what comes to mind when he says the word “zebra,” you do not have to clumsily sort back through some gigantic and cerebral alphabetic file to arrive at an answer. Instead, associations like “striped,” “horselike,” and “animal native to Africa” all pop into your head instantly. Indeed, one of the most amazing things about the human thinking process is that every piece of information seems instantly cross-correlated with every other piece of information–another feature intrinsic to the hologram. Because every portion of a hologram is infinitely interconnected with every other portion, it is perhaps nature’s supreme example of a cross-correlated system.

The storage of memory is not the only neurophysiological puzzle that becomes more tractable in light of Pribram’s holographic model of the brain. Another is how the brain is able to translate the avalanche of frequencies it receives via the senses (light frequencies, sound frequencies, and so on) into the concrete world of our perceptions.

Encoding and decoding frequencies is precisely what a hologram does best. Just as a hologram functions as a sort of lens, a translating device able to convert an apparently meaningless blur of frequencies into a coherent image, Pribram believes the brain also comprises a lens and uses holographic principles to mathematically convert the frequencies it receives through the senses into the inner world of our perceptions.

An impressive body of evidence suggests that the brain uses holographic principles to perform its operations. Pribram’s theory, in fact, has gained increasing support among neurophysiologists.

Argentinian-Italian researcher Hugo Zuccarelli recently extended the holographic model into the world of acoustic phenomena. Puzzled by the fact that humans can locate the source of sounds without moving their heads, even if they only possess hearing in one ear, Zuccarelli discovered that holographic principles can explain this ability. Zuccarelli has also developed the technology of holophonic sound, a recording technique able to reproduce acoustic situations with an almost uncanny realism.

Pribram’s belief that our brains mathematically construct “hard” reality by relying on input from a frequency domain has also received a good deal of experimental support. It has been found that each of our senses is sensitive to a much broader range of frequencies than was previously suspected. Researchers have discovered, for instance, that our visual systems are sensitive to sound frequencies, that our sense of smell is in part dependent on what are now called “osmic frequencies,” and that even the cells in our bodies are sensitive to a broad range of frequencies. Such findings suggest that it is only in the holographic domain of consciousness that such frequencies are sorted out and divided up into conventional perceptions.

But the most mind-boggling aspect of Pribram’s holographic model of the brain is what happens when it is put together with Bohm’s theory. For if the concreteness of the world is but a secondary reality and what is “there” is actually a holographic blur of frequencies, and if the brain is also a hologram and only selects some of the frequencies out of this blur and mathematically transforms them into sensory perceptions, what becomes of objective reality? Put quite simply, it ceases to exist. As the religions of the East have long upheld, the material world is Maya, an illusion, and although we may think we are physical beings moving through a physical world, this too is an illusion.

We are really “receivers” floating through a kaleidoscopic sea of frequency, and what we extract from this sea and transmogrify into physical reality is but one channel from many extracted out of the superhologram.

This striking new picture of reality, the synthesis of Bohm and Pribram’s views, has come to be called the holographic paradigm, and although many scientists have greeted it with skepticism, it has galvanized others. A small but growing group of researchers believe it may be the most accurate model of reality science has arrived at thus far. More than that, some believe it may solve some mysteries that have never before been explainable by science and even establish the paranormal as a part of nature. Numerous researchers, including Bohm and Pribram, have noted that many para-psychological phenomena become much more understandable in terms of the holographic paradigm.

In a universe in which individual brains are actually indivisible portions of the greater hologram and everything is infinitely interconnected, telepathy may merely be the accessing of the holographic level.

It is obviously much easier to understand how information can travel from the mind of individual ‘A’ to that of individual ‘B’ at a far distance point and helps to understand a number of unsolved puzzles in psychology.

In particular, Stanislav Grof feels the holographic paradigm offers a model for understanding many of the baffling phenomena experienced by individuals during altered states of consciousness. In the 1950s, while conducting research into the beliefs of LSD as a psychotherapeutic tool, Grof had one female patient who suddenly became convinced she had assumed the identity of a female of a species of prehistoric reptile. During the course of her hallucination, she not only gave a richly detailed description of what it felt like to be encapsuled in such a form, but noted that the portion of the male of the species’s anatomy was a patch of colored scales on the side of its head. What was startling to Grof was that although the woman had no prior knowledge about such things, a conversation with a zoologist later confirmed that in certain species of reptiles colored areas on the head do indeed play an important role as triggers of sexual arousal. The woman’s experience was not unique. During the course of his research, Grof encountered examples of patients regressing and identifying with virtually every species on the evolutionary tree (research findings which helped influence the man-into-ape scene in the movie Altered States). Moreover, he found that such experiences frequently contained obscure zoological details which turned out to be accurate.

Regressions into the animal kingdom were not the only puzzling psychological phenomena Grof encountered. He also had patients who appeared to tap into some sort of collective or racial unconscious. Individuals with little or no education suddenly gave detailed descriptions of Zoroastrian funerary practices and scenes from Hindu mythology. In other categories of experience, individuals gave persuasive accounts of out-of-body journeys, of precognitive glimpses of the future, of regressions into apparent past-life incarnations.

In later research, Grof found the same range of phenomena manifested in therapy sessions which did not involve the use of drugs. Because the common element in such experiences appeared to be the transcending of an individual’s consciousness beyond the usual boundaries of ego and/or limitations of space and time, Grof called such manifestations “transpersonal experiences”, and in the late ’60s he helped found a branch of psychology called “transpersonal psychology” devoted entirely to their study.

Although Grof’s newly founded Association of Transpersonal Psychology garnered a rapidly growing group of like-minded professionals and has become a respected branch of psychology, for years neither Grof or any of his colleagues were able to offer a mechanism for explaining the bizarre psychological phenomena they were witnessing. But that has changed with the advent of the holographic paradigm.

As Grof recently noted, if the mind is actually part of a continuum, a labyrinth that is connected not only to every other mind that exists or has existed, but to every atom, organism, and region in the vastness of space and time itself, the fact that it is able to occasionally make forays into the labyrinth and have transpersonal experiences no longer seems so strange.

The holographic paradigm also has implications for so-called hard sciences like biology. Keith Floyd, a psychologist at Virginia Intermont College, has pointed out that if the concreteness of reality is but a holographic illusion, it would no longer be true to say the brain produces consciousness. Rather, it is consciousness that creates the appearance of the brain — as well as the body and everything else around us we interpret as physical.

Such a turnabout in the way we view biological structures has caused researchers to point out that medicine and our understanding of the healing process could also be transformed by the holographic paradigm. If the apparent physical structure of the body is but a holographic projection of consciousness, it becomes clear that each of us is much more responsible for our health than current medical wisdom allows. What we now view as miraculous remissions of disease may actually be due to changes in consciousness which in turn affect changes in the hologram of the body.

Similarly, controversial new healing techniques such as visualization may work so well because, in the holographic domain of thought, images are ultimately as real as “reality”.

Even visions and experiences involving “non-ordinary” reality become explainable under the holographic paradigm. In his book “Gifts of Unknown Things,” biologist Lyall Watson describes his encounter with an Indonesian shaman woman who, by performing a ritual dance, was able to make an entire grove of trees instantly vanish into thin air. Watson relates that as he and another astonished onlooker continued to watch the woman, she caused the trees to reappear, then “click” off again and on again several times in succession.

Although current scientific understanding is incapable of explaining such events, experiences like this become more tenable if “hard” reality is only a holographic projection. Perhaps we agree on what is “there” or “not there” because what we call consensus reality is formulated and ratified at the level of the human unconscious at which all minds are infinitely interconnected. If this is true, it is the most profound implication of the holographic paradigm of all, for it means that experiences such as Watson’s are not commonplace only because we have not programmed our minds with the beliefs that would make them so. In a holographic universe there are no limits to the extent to which we can alter the fabric of reality.

What we perceive as reality is only a canvas waiting for us to draw upon it any picture we want. Anything is possible, from bending spoons with the power of the mind to the phantasmagoric events experienced by Castaneda during his encounters with the Yaqui brujo don Juan, for magic is our birthright, no more or less miraculous than our ability to compute the reality we want when we are in our dreams.

Indeed, even our most fundamental notions about reality become suspect, for in a holographic universe, as Pribram has pointed out, even random events would have to be seen as based on holographic principles and therefore determined. Synchronicities or meaningful coincidences suddenly makes sense, and everything in reality would have to be seen as a metaphor, for even the most haphazard events would express some underlying symmetry.

Whether Bohm and Pribram’s holographic paradigm becomes accepted in science or dies an ignoble death remains to be seen, but it is safe to say that it has already had an influence on the thinking of many scientists. And even if it is found that the holographic model does not provide the best explanation for the instantaneous communications that seem to be passing back and forth between subatomic particles, at the very least, as noted by Basil Hiley, a physicist at Birbeck College in London, Aspect’s findings “indicate that we must be prepared to consider radically new views of reality.”

The End.

END GLOBAL DISCRIMINATION AGAINST PEOPLE WITH METAPHYSICAL ABILITIES

Now before I begin my passionate tangent about how vital it is to end global discrimination against METAs, I’ll ask that you please pardon my rambling as I know this is going to be a string of random thoughts as they arise. My brain is in overdrive and I’m quite sleep deprived. I hope you’ll consider what I’m attempting to communicate as briefly as possible – as this is a big topic which is so very dear to my heart and to millions of people worldwide. I had to post this to (hopefully) start a dialogue, get more articles and interviews done on this fascinating, far-reaching, timely and seminal topic.

Here’s the gist of this particular post: Me and my people – the METAs – are still being persecuted and quite frankly, we’re sick and tired of the vile witch hunts, prejudice and discrimination. Enough is enough! The time has come for EVERYONE to be able to come out of the metaphorical “Metaphysical Closet” and step into the Light, to be able to make a living while living our lives openly, authentically, freely and safely. 

This post is about the rampant discrimination against anyone who identifies as or has abilities labeled as: psychic, paranormal, extraordinary, magical, metaphysical, supernatural, shaman(ic), wiccan, pagan, energy healer, light worker, trance channel medium, the fields of parapsychology which includes telekinesis, the “clairs” (clairvoyance, claircognizance, clairsentience, clairaudience, clairescence, clairgustance, clairambience) and on and on. You know what I’m talking about. Let’s just call them “METAs”.

I have been in the arts and entertainment industry – in one form or another – for basically my entire life! For my entire life, I have been aware of my supernatural abilities and talents, and have continuously used them as well as endlessly studied a wide variety of metaphysical areas, modalities and practices.

As most who know me know I’m a member of SAG-AFTRA, BMI and other various groups and have owned my own company, The Dream Masters, (“TDM” since 2000) and also currently work at Disney in the Legal Affairs division doing above-the-line, live action deals (my “day job” as it were). It has been an interesting life indeed and the best is yet to come.

I fall into several categories of highly discriminated against people: woman, over 29, not a size -000,…and the never-discussed yet most shunned group in every industry: the “metaphysically gifted” (“METAs”).

I came out of the “Metaphysical Closet” in 2016 and it is now part of my mission to education and advocate for “METAs” worldwide.

If it weren’t for Metas, the arts and entertainment industry wouldn’t exist. Period. Read that again. 

At this time, there’s an unprecedented movement to eliminate discrimination and hate crimes against a wide variety of groups of people based on: color, race, religion, sexual orientation/identification, LGBTQ+, etc. But still nothing significant for the METAs! 

Shockingly, the scientifically proven, absolute oldest and largest group of humans in the entire world throughout all of history (and often the greatest contributors to the arts and entertainment industry on all levels) are the METAs.

Yet, we are still forced to live in the metaphorical “closet” because of who and what we are – how we were born as well as our choices on how to live (and make the world a better place for all). METAs are still forced to hide our innate abilities as well as valuable learned skills, unable to live safely and authentically out in the open. We constantly have to hide and lie to protect not only ourselves but our families as well as keep our jobs. 

Under current federal laws, “religion” is one protected category…unless you’re a pagan, wiccan, satanist, druid, voo doo/ hoo doo practitioner, etc. Then you’re still considered a weirdo (and possibly delusional and dangerous) and companies lie about why we don’t get the job to avoid lawsuits. But, being highly intuitive and intelligent, we METAs know why we don’t get hired. 

METAs pretty much stay in the closet so they can keep their jobs and have a good life for themselves and their families. As for the entertainment industry…the federal laws prohibiting discrimination based on age and equal pay are a joke (ask 99% of the women). Now factor in people who are METAs…there’s unprecedented discrimination. I am speaking out and standing up to this because I’m fed up with all the double-standards and hate-based discrimination born of ignorance, fear, envy and jealousy.

METAs are usually master storytellers at heart. It takes great imagination and focused intention to manifest great stories and for actors to embody characters. There is an alchemy to acting and all great movies as well as music have a metaphysical ability to transform the audience. 

The greatest storytellers all attribute an unseen force/source for their works. The greatest composers and authors all say something to the effect, “I just wrote down what I heard in my head (or in my dreams or daydreams).” THAT is the perfect example of “channeling” information from unseen dimensions/realms/whatever-you-want-to-call-it. Artists see the painting/picture/sculpture in their mind’s eye and then make it here in this reality.

Writers have been quoted saying that a story that just came to them but got put on a shelf for 20 years will be vastly different when they try to get back into editing it. The village has changed, the people have all changed (grown up, got married, divorced, had kids, died, etc.) and they rewrite a lot of the original manuscript/script. The reason is so simple that it gets missed/dismissed most of the time…or the writer knows what’s going on and will never admit to it for fear of being blacklisted as a kook.

Here’s what happens: Twenty years ago, a writer achieves resonance with a person, a place…let’s say a tiny village and the people in it. Doesn’t matter how – it can happen a number of ways. The writer’s accessing another realm where this place and all its people are real. Naturally over the course of 20 years things change. When that writer returns to that old story they put away on a shelf and gets back into resonance with the village and those people…it is different. And since time is relevant…20 years here could possibly equal 1 or 100 years in that alternate reality.

There are hundreds of quotes on line talking about this phenomena. For instance:

I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free. ” ~ Michelangelo

People hear that and say I’m being modest, but I am not a modest person, but I have to be truthful about what I’m doing and what I’m doing is channeling. ~ Morgan Freeman

You can’t sit down and write 300 compositions in a three-month period and think that you’re doing it all by yourself. Obviously, there’s something going on here. And whether you want to call it channeling or being connected to a creative force or knowing your history and knowing where you belong, that’s, you know, maybe a personal thing. ~ John Zorn

Many times, working is kind of like channeling, and I really don’t know what’s going to fall on the page. I just did this image of a fat girl and put her on a tiny mountain peak of grass that she’s walking over. It just amused me. ~ Gloria Vanderbilt

“When I am ….. completely myself, entirely alone… or during the night when I cannot sleep, it is on such occasions that my ideas flow best and most abundantly. Whence and how these ideas come I know not nor can I force them.”
― Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

You can research this type of stuff all day long on the Internet. One interesting recent article I came across was this one:

Researchers at Durham University teamed up with the Guardian and the Edinburgh international book festival to survey 181 authors appearing at the 2014 and 2018 festivals. Sixty-three per cent said they heard their characters speak while writing, with 61% reporting characters were capable of acting independently.

(Many still don’t fully understand what’s happening but them trying to explain it is very interesting to me. They are channeling and don’t even know it…or won’t admit it for fear of persecution.)

https://www.theguardian.com/books/2020/apr/27/majority-of-authors-hear-their-characters-speak-finds-study

My website has a lot of information as well as photos when paranormal phenomena in them. My group of peers are the thought leaders and pioneers of fringe science as well as all things metaphysical. We are all working together to change things for the better…for everyone everywhere. It is time to raise the vibration – especially in the entertainment industry – by bringing this discussion into the mainstream across all formats.

I humbly ask you to kindly consider all this and will either write about it or contact publications and approach journalists and anyone else who will listen so that all of you can help to shed light on this enormous and vital topic and end global discrimination against METAs. 

This is an important subject that is gaining momentum and to be ahead of the wave/setting the stage/leading the way is an important thing.

Let us join together, start a dialogue and get articles done on this fascinating timely topic and take action. The days of witch hunts are over…and anyone who wants to continue that very old tradition is in for a surprising response and awakening.

I’ll be writing more and more about this. If you want to write about this or interview me and other experts on this topic, I’ll help you however I can. Please reach out to me via the Contact page. 

In Humble Service, Love & Light ~ Lisa Rhyne

Journal of a Dream Master

 

On the 5th anniversary of the publishing JDM, I want to share “the story behind the story” of “Journey of a Dream Master“.

I felt compelled to do this because I didn’t want to die with my stories still in me. I ended up self-publishing because every publisher and editor I spoke with couldn’t believe the all the stories and wanted me to heavily edit all the “crazy supernatural stuff” out. These are TRUE stories! So I simply published it myself rather than try to make them comfortable. Their limitations are not my concern.

The severe head trauma (and all the subsequent heavy doses of pain medications) made me severely dyslexic and I suffered white outs frequently. I also had episodes of “word salad” that is now gone. The dyslexia is still present but greatly reduced. I continuously work on my healing.

The fact that I wrote, edited, and published this book is a miracle. I felt pushed to get it out on that birthday because, quite frankly, at the time I thought I was going to die soon and I wanted to leave some record of a few of my life experiences.

I pulled this from publication in 2021 as I’ll be combining the 3 books into one. So this little book is a limited edition collector’s item.  We’re  working on a great publishing deal with a major book publisher. Stay tuned for updates!

the story behind the story of “JOURNEY OF A DREAM MASTER”

 

It has been 5 years since my writing/editing/self-publishing my book, “Journey of a Dream Master: The Dream Masters – Book 1,” I want to share some of my thoughts and insights about this journey as most have no idea about any of what follows because it has never been publicly revealed until now. Certain family, friends and peers know but I wanted to share it here with anyone else that may be interested.

As those who know me will attest, I tend to never ask for help and feel “the show must go on” so I struggle and persevere in silence as not to be a burden to anyone. I went from being labeled by medical “experts” as “permanently disabled” to writing, editing and publishing my first book in 2016. Not too shabby!

There is a very good reason for the way my book was written – including the errors. The traumatic brain injury and stroke (resulting in crippling migraines and massive doses of heavy medications – including Dilaudid), is reflected in the official trial deposition taken in late 2013 reflects what my life had become as it was incoherent (word salad), full of unfinished sentences, blanks, and complete whiteouts where I lost my train of thought and couldn’t talk or think straight (my brain was severely scrambled & heavily drugged).

Between October 2008 and 2014, I spent the majority of my time in bed, hospitals, emergency rooms, and doctor’s offices as well as a lot of time working with my traditional Shamans and “healer” friends all over the world. I couldn’t always work a regular job, drive or even do many basic things I used to take for granted. Sometimes I couldn’t finish basic sentences let alone compose stories for a book. I still struggle and my words are jumbled sometimes (so you may see typos on this website!). But I pushed on, wrote when I could and have healed far beyond all their expectations. (And as you know from my book, I truly love proving the White Coats wrong!)

So, today while reflecting on all this, I thought I’d share some background as well as my top 3 reasons for writing this trilogy:

 

1.) I LOVE STORYTELLING – DON’T DIE WITHOUT TELLING SOME OF MY TRUE STORIES

Humans have always been storytellers and I’m no exception. Stories transport us, teach us, entertain us and transform us in many ways on many levels. I love great stories! I am and always have been a storyteller who enjoys sharing stories with all who are interested.

 

2.) TO THINE OWN SELF BE TRUE

I set out to write authentically about my life, my truths, experiences, as well as pose some of my many random questions and ideas. The few editors and publishers I initially consulted and shared some of my content with all wanted me to change vital elements and delete certain stories because of their B.S. (Belief Systems). They’re uninitiated in the supernatural / metaphysical / mystical / paranormal / whatever-you-want-to-call-it. They couldn’t understand or accept certain things. I don’t judge them as they’re on their own journeys. I’m on my “Journey of a Dream Master” and they’re on their “Journey of an Editor (or whatever)”. I was not willing to lie or downplay my life or sacrifice my integrity because of someone else’s limited beliefs and inexperience. I was going to write it my way or not at all – perfect spelling and grammar be damned! Finished is better than perfect. So that is exactly what I did.

 

3.) TO PROVE ONLY TO MYSELF THAT I COULD

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. I did not believe ANYONE would ever buy or read my book. Seriously, why in the world would anyone care about me and my experiences? I wrote it only for myself to prove I could and to leave some sort of record of my little life. Then I made it available just in case anyone else wanted or needed to read what’s in it. All the wonderful reviews, fan photos, interviews and private messages have just been…far beyond words. It has been surprising, utterly amazing, humbling, and extremely gratifying. Thank you all for your love and support.


SOME RELEVANT HEALTH BACKGROUND:

Several “medical experts/specialists” mutually agreed (after a tremendously staggering amount of due diligence over a few years in a lawsuit) that I would be permanently disabled and never be able to do work as a paralegal or creative writer ever again. (Which is the same as telling me I can’t do something…which, of course, means I’m gonna do it.)

As a point of interest, I wanted to share just a few bits from one of those many doctors involved with my care after the accident. He and all the other doctors came to the same final conclusion at the end. Below is a small portion of his 79-page deposition. There is a lot more but this is enough to give you some small idea what I went (and still am going) through and how far I’ve come.

Q. Can you review for the jury what your exam consisted of and what your findings were.

A. Well, I noted that her blood pressure was 218 over 134 on that day, which is quite high. Her highest recorded blood pressure (on more than one occasion) was 229 over 196.

She had suffered a closed head injury followed by the development of post traumatic migraine which became severe, frequent, and disabling.

She also developed hypertensive urgency from autonomic dysfunction I felt resulting from her head trauma. And I thought this was the result of dysregulation of her bilateral orbital frontal cortex which is an area which promotes parasympathetic activity and inhibits sympathetic activity. This dysregulation causes a cortically provoked release of adrenomedullary catecholamines, epinephrine and norepinephrine.

What that essentially means is that there’s an area of the brain that I felt sustained trauma, and it’s called the orbital frontal cortex. It was a sufficient enough blow to cause a malfunction of that region of the brain. And it has dual action, that orbital frontal cortex; it promotes parasympathetic activity which tends to slow the heart rate and lower the blood pressure and inhibits sympathetic activity. And sympathetic activity, if you don’t inhibit it, causes an increased release of catecholamines which are substances like epinephrine and norepinephrine released by the adrenal gland, and causing surges in blood pressure.

The American Medical Association committee person has a certain percentage impairment rating, it’s based on certain criteria that are listed in the AMA Guides For Permanent Impairment.

And the one that we use now is the AMA Guides To Permanent Impairment, Sixth Edition, which has been in use since January of 2008.

I felt that she had the maximum. Her headaches were so frequent, so disabling that she qualified for the maximum allowable impairment by the AMA Guides, Sixth Edition, for migraine headache which would have been 5 percent.

Q. Her diagnosis that you’ve made definitively is that she has migraines; right?

A. She does have migraines, yes. Migraines that are disabling. And it’s not just me. You know, Dr. #9 [NOTE: there were 12 doctors/specialists and they were simply numbered #1-12] had seen her as well, and he prepared a report, and found that her pain disability questionnaire score was 113 which places her, based on the AMA Guides To Permanent Impairment, Sixth Edition, placed her in the severe impairment due to migraine.

Q. I understand that you believe she may qualify for an additional impairment as well?

A. I do.

Q. Will Ms. Rhyne require future medical treatment as a result of the injuries she received?

A. Yes, she will – for the rest of her life.

Q. Do you believe that Ms. Rhyne has limitations related to her job as a result of the migraines?

A. Yes. Whenever she experiences a disabling migraine, she’s unable to function that day. In my medical and expert opinion, she is permanently disabled as a result of the accident and will, in all likelihood, never be able to resume working in her area of expertise which, to my understanding, is as a paralegal and creative writer.


I actually became friends with my cardiologist. Interestingly, after the lawsuit was completed (which I won!), on my last visit with him I thanked him for all his help, smiled, looked him square in the eye and told him in no uncertain terms, “Thank you for all you’ve done for me. I appreciate your help and expert opinion submitted in the case…but you do not know me and I am going to be just fine.” He really took that in and after seeing how congruent I was with what I’d just said, there was a long pause then he smiled and said, “I believe you!”

I think the reason he believed me is because I was truly was completely congruent with what I was saying; and, earlier during my final evaluation, he’d compared all the tests, scans, images, etc. that he had personally performed from start to finish.

As he reviewed everything, a bit astonished, he said my heart had become more than double the normal size over the course of the treatments from 2008-2014 (due to the extreme high blood pressure basically building up that muscle – it went from normal to being like an Arnold Schwarzenegger of hearts).

He said that hearts “do not return to normal without some signs/scars of the trauma” but mine had not only returned to “normal” but there was no indication whatsoever of any trauma. He was completely baffled and said that if he hadn’t done all the tests himself and kept his records there at his office, he would swear someone has switched the results because it looks like results for 2 completely different people. As soon as I published my book, I made sure he knew so he could see what other “impossible” things I like to play with.

Geeze, this almost turned into a book itself rather than a brief birthday post! I just wanted to share the importance and significance of what my little book means in my continuing Journey of a Dream Master. Thank you so much for all the love. Thank you for buying, reading, reviewing my book as well as sharing your photos and stories with me. I’m looking forward to publishing and producing more of my projects as well as looking forward to getting out more and seeing you soon!!

In Humble Service, Love & Light, Lisa

The tasks of these “Warriors of the Rainbow” are many and great. There will be terrifying mountains of ignorance to conquer and they shall find prejudice and hatred. They must be dedicated, unwavering in their strength, and strong of heart.

WE ARE THE modern warriors of the rainbow

I wrote this many years ago and published it in various places and am reposting here. This is about human rights, evolution, ancient indigenous prophecies being fulfilled, and where we are heading. Have a read and see if it resonates. We’d love to hear from you. ~ Lisa

I have my own thoughts and interpretation of who the “Rainbow Warriors” are that is solely my own and I want to share it with you now.  I’ve included the story below from a woman I do not know but have emailed with her and included her info below to give proper credit. 

I do not believe that the reference to “rainbow warrior” has to do only with the color of skin. Some say it is the white, black, yellow, brown, etc. and all other tribes. Skin color could be a factor. However, I actually believe it is the modern day warriors who utilize the colors and image of the rainbow that are the true Rainbow Warriors spoken of in numerous prophecies.

Note that the colors of the rainbow and the rainbow symbol is now widely regarded as the international symbol of people who identify with primarily non-heterosexual orientations (currently commonly referred to sometimes as LGBTQ and variations of that initialism). However, I believe anyone who is interested in loving their fellow human beings is a Rainbow Warrior and it has nothing to do with sex, sexual preferences, what you wear or don’t wear, pray or don’t pray to, how you vote or anything else other than being a basically loving, descent, respectful and honorable human being.

So many people have fought long and hard for not only their own basic human rights to be respected and acknowledged but also for the rights of many if not all. They have a warrior way of life – whether that means strictly on a personal level all the way to dealing with politics religion, rights and every other aspect of individual life and society. In standing up for what is right for themselves they also shine a light on what is right and just for all equally.

Just as the rainbow incorporates and includes ALL of the visible light spectrum and does not exclude any one particular color, frequency, vibration. We as humankind must include all and exclude none. Everyone is unique, beautiful, equal, free and this human spirit that connects all of us is all that matters. Live and let live. Love and let love.

Know that the Rainbow Warriors are here now. They fight for all. I am happy, honored and humbled to consider myself one of the many Rainbow Warriors. As another personal note: I find it so strange, rude, idiotic as well as totally perverted, voyeuristic and just plain creepy that strangers are interested in and get themselves involved in what strangers are doing in the privacy of their own home with their families, jobs and lives – especially people’s sex lives. Let us all first focus on our own lives, take care of our own personal health, happiness, business and then focus on helping and loving everyone and everything. More on this in the next post.  In Love, Laughter and Light ~ Lisa Rhyne


Warriors of the Rainbow
by Lelanie Anderson

There was an old lady, from the “Cree” tribe, named “Eyes of Fire”, who prophesied that one day, because of the white mans’ or Yo-ne-gis’ greed, there would come a time, when the fish would die in the streams, the birds would fall from the air, the waters would be blackened, and the trees would no longer be, mankind as we would know it would all but cease to exist.

There would come a time when the “keepers of the legend, stories, culture rituals, and myths, and all the Ancient Tribal Customs” would be needed to restore us to health. They would be mankind’s’ key to survival, they were the “Warriors of the Rainbow”. There would come a day of awakening when all the peoples of all the tribes would form a New World of Justice, Peace, Freedom and recognition of the Great Spirit.

The “Warriors of the Rainbow” would spread these messages and teach all peoples of the Earth or “Elohi”. They would teach them how to live the “Way of the Great Spirit”. They would tell them of how the world today has turned away from the Great Spirit and that is why our Earth is “Sick”.

The “Warriors of the Rainbow” would show the peoples that this “Ancient Being” (the Great Spirit), is full of love and understanding, and teach them how to make the “Earth or Elohi” beautiful again. These Warriors would give the people principles or rules to follow to make their path right with the world. These principles would be those of the Ancient Tribes. The Warriors of the Rainbow would teach the people of the ancient practices of Unity, Love and Understanding. They would teach of Harmony among people in all four comers of the Earth.

Like the Ancient Tribes, they would teach the peoples how to pray to the Great Spirit with love that flows like the beautiful mountain stream, and flows along the path to the ocean of life. Once again, they would be able to feel joy in solitude and in councils. They would be free of petty jealousies and love all mankind as their brothers, regardless of color, race or religion. They would feel happiness enter their hearts, and become as one with the entire human race.

Their hearts would be pure and radiate warmth, understanding and respect for all mankind, Nature, and the Great Spirit. They would once again fill their minds, hearts, souls, and deeds with the purest of thoughts. They would seek the beauty of the Master of Life – the Great Spirit! They would find strength and beauty in prayer and the solitudes of life.

Their children would once again be able to run free and enjoy the treasures of Nature and Mother Earth. Free from the fears of toxins and destruction, wrought by the Yo-ne-gi and his practices of greed. The rivers would again run clear, the forests be abundant and beautiful, the animals and birds would be replenished. The powers of the plants and animals would again be respected and conservation of all that is beautiful would become a way of life. The poor, sick and needy would be cared for by their brothers and sisters of the Earth. These practices would again become a part of their daily lives.

The leaders of the people would be chosen in the old way – not by their political party, or who could speak the loudest, boast the most, or by name calling or mudslinging, but by those whose actions spoke the loudest. Those who demonstrated their love, wisdom, and courage and those who showed that they could and did work for the good of all, would be chosen as the leaders or Chiefs. They would be chosen by their “quality” and not the amount of money they had obtained. Like the thoughtful and devoted “Ancient Chiefs”, they would understand the people with love, and see that their young were educated with the love and wisdom of their surroundings. They would show them that miracles can be accomplished to heal this world of its ills, and restore it to health and beauty.

The tasks of these “Warriors of the Rainbow” are many and great. There will be terrifying mountains of ignorance to conquer and they shall find prejudice and hatred. They must be dedicated, unwavering in their strength, and strong of heart. They will find willing hearts and minds that will follow them on this road of returning “Mother Earth” to beauty and plenty – once more.

The day will come, it is not far away. The day that we shall see how we owe our very existence to the people of all tribes that have maintained their culture and heritage. Those that have kept the rituals, stories, legends, and myths alive. It will be with this knowledge, the knowledge that they have preserved, that we shall once again return to “harmony” with Nature, Mother Earth, and mankind. It will be with this knowledge that we shall find our “Key to our Survival”.

This is the story of the “Warriors of the Rainbow” and this is my reason for protecting the culture, heritage, and knowledge of my ancestors. I know that the day “Eyes of Fire” spoke of – will come! I want my children and grandchildren to be prepared to accept this task. The task of being one of the……..”Warriors of the Rainbow”.
