MANILA, Philippines?My second trip to Poland last April 24 to May 7 was full of surprises, pleasant and unpleasant.
The unpleasant ones were due to the sudden changes in visa application procedures arising from the membership of Poland in the European Union, resulting in delays in processing of papers. Because of such delays, my wife and I missed our flight and the seminars I was to conduct in Poland were postponed twice.
Also, my wife didn?t make it to the trip, the number of people who were supposed to attend went down.
The good news is that all the four seminars I conducted were a complete success?the Basic ESP and Intuition Development, Soulmates, Karma and Reincarnation, Creative Thinking and Problem Solving, and the Advanced ESP and Mediumship Training.
All these, except the last one, were held at the fabulous Pope John Paul II Museum in Warsaw which houses some 450 original paintings and sculptures by great artists of the 14th to the 20th century?Rembrandt, Reubens, Van Dyck, Titian, Van Gogh, Rodin, Dali, and Picasso.
About 60 persons attended my ESP seminars and about half of that in the other seminars. The least number of attendees was the Advanced ESP seminar, which was purposely limited to those who are really interested in advanced studies of the esoteric sciences and metaphysical knowledge. ?We could have had double those numbers,? said Irena Galinska, president of the Institute of Valeology in Poznan, my host, ?if your seminars had not been postponed twice.?
Some of the participants came as far as 300 kms away, such as Poznan and Krakow, others all the way from Germany and England.
In the Basic ESP and Intuition Dev?t seminar, many participants performed the psychic reading and diagnosis, psychometry and remote viewing exercises very well, much to their amazement.
In the remote viewing exercise, 90% of the participants succeeded in describing details of the house of their partners whom they had never met. Six of 60 bent a metallic spoon with their minds, and about 12 or 13 moved a small object through telekinesis.
These may not be big percentages but enough to convince anyone of the tremendous untapped powers of the human mind.
A big surprise for me was in the psychometry exercise where participants were asked to describe the person they did not know by simply holding an object inside an envelope, such as a finger ring, earring, pendant or necklace. The feedbacks were fantastic!
In the Soulmates, Karma and Reincarnation seminar, a number saw their past lives very vividly during the hypnotic regressions. Most saw only vague outlines or figures. The percentage of success I got during this seminar was much less than what I normally get in the Philippines and I attribute this to the language problem. The translator they assigned was not very good.
The Creative Thinking and Problem Solving one-day class was the first I ever held outside the Philippines. Participants had a lot of fun doing creative exercises.
Here they learned how to do Brain Storming to generate original ideas, how to solve problems creatively through the Synectics Method and other idea-generating techniques such as Attribute Listing and Checklists.
The great appeal of the seminars in Warsaw was evident in the fact that many participants in the Basic ESP course also enrolled in succeeding seminars.
Books in Polish
One other good news is that two of my books came out in Polish when I was there??The Magicians of God? with Muslim healer Warka Adala on the cover and ?Soulmate, Karma and Reincarnation.? The latter was almost sold out during the Basic ESP seminar and Irena had to order more copies from Poznan .
Another Polish publisher will publish two of my other books later this year??Understanding the Psychic Powers of Man? and ?More Encounters with the Unknown.?
The next Soulmates, Karma & Reincarnation seminar will be on May 24, 1-7 p.m. at Rm. 308 Prince Plaza I Condominium, 106 Legaspi St., Greenbelt, Makati. Call 8107245/ 8926806; e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
