If you are interested in shamanism, I may have a good book recommendation for you. Hank Wesselman, Ph.D., is an anthropologist who suddenly experienced an altered state of consciousness back in the 1980s. He describes the experience as being paralyzed by ecstatic feelings of power or force, although he was fully awake and very aware. It was during the altered state that he had a direct encounter with a spirit. Many years later, the experiences continued, and he was able to connect with the mind of another man who lived 5,000 years in the future. “Visionseeker” is the third book that Hank Wesselman, Ph.D., has written about his experiences. This volume focuses more on the training of Nainoa, the man from the future.
To start, we get a lesson about the Master Game in life. That is, true awakening and full development of the latent powers in humans. Hank Wesselman says that this is the key to the next stage of human evolution.
Throughout the book, we are taken on eight journeys with Dr. Wesselman as he is able to connect with Nainoa intentionally. These encounters are very detailed and include Nainoa’s training as a kahuna followed by his marriage.
One of the standout ideas is that we have three parts of ourselves. The middle self, the part that thinks, analyzes, integrates information, and makes decisions, is the most important part of ourselves to master. When we learn how to master our thoughts, what seems impossible at first glance, suddenly becomes possible.
Another piece of wisdom is how we connect with those around us energetically and spiritually. These connections go beyond time and space. Our spiritual nature will continue on, even after it leaves our current physical vessel.
After reading about Dr. Wesselman’s experiences in “Visionseeker,” I am definitely looking forward to reading his earlier books. His experiences are very intriguing, especially coming from a man of science who has been able to activate his spiritual nature so profoundly.
