Amped Up? Electromagnetic Fields and Extraordinary Experiences
Updated: Feb 9
By Barbara Mango
I am always told how much "energy" I have. This inevitably occurs on days that I feel like an utter, complete zombie. The days following a sleepless night, when three cups of coffee isn't cutting it. The days I can't string two coherent sentences together. The days I steel myself to power through each hour. At such times, I am mildly amused by this statement. I know my sunglasses (barely) manage to cover the dark bags under my eyes, but still.....? So I ask, "Energy? I can barely put one foot in the front of the other today! What do you mean?" Their response? "It's not how you act. You have a strong en
ergy field-I can feel it."
Research demonstrates there is strong correlation between extraordinary experiences and one's electro-magnetic field. All living things produce magnetic fields; indeed, tissues and organs produce specific magnetic pulsations, also known as biomagnetic fields (biofields). It is widely accepted that the human energy field extends between 2-3 feet beyond the body, in a 360% radius. Thus, it makes sense when we feel others are "invading our personal zone" (or energy field), if they stand less than two feet away. They really are!
However, since we cannot "see" energy, how do we know this? In 1887, Heinrich Hertz first demonstrated the existence of the electromagnetism. In 1939 Russian inventor Seymon Davidovitch Kirlian invented a type of camera able to capture the human electromagnetic, or biofield. Kirlian photography reveals visible “auras” (the energy field surrounding a person), and is frequently the subject of parapsychology, research, and alternative healing.
All humans are surrounded by energy fields detectable by Kirlian photography. Most individuals emit weak electromagnetic fields, vibrating at low frequencies. Yet, inexplicable experiences may actually raise the energetic frequency of our bodies.
Electromagnetic Effects (EMEs) are a particularly fascinating outcome of extraordinary experiences. It has been suggested that electromagnetic sensitivity validates the mystical belief that spirit/soul is comprised of energy. Perhaps, as one moves from the lower vibrating frequencies of the physical body into higher vibrational frequencies of the non-physical, energetic changes occur. In fact, numerous experiencers claim they now “vibrate at a higher frequency” and have been “rewired”, or “re-aligned” since their experience.
Many state that their energy is now "extremely intense" and "powerful." In fact, it may be strong enough to significantly interfere with electronic equipment. This is certainly the case with world-renowned near-death experience (NDE) researcher PMH Atwater.
PMH Atwater is a three-time NDEer. Atwater describes how her now off-the chart electromagnetic sensitivities have impacted her public engagements:
"During a 2001 conference held in Seattle, I was the first speaker on the docket... Soon after I began, the overhead lights started to undulate off and on in waves and patterns that increased in intensity. Everyone in the room saw it...I was so embarrassed. I stopped talking and prayed with all my heart that they stop. Finally, they did. No one else experienced anything like that, nor did the lights “misbehave” again. During a presentation I was giving about the aftereffects of near-death states to the Psychology Class at James Madison University in Harrisonburg, Virginia, I mentioned electrical sensitivity. The lights popped from a sudden power surge. This only affected the building where I was. This type of thing has happened so often at talks I have given, that I have learned to calm my energy down before I speak. Sometimes that works, and sometimes it doesn’t."
I relate to Atwater. I have had hundreds of extraordinary experiences. These have significantly heightened my electromagnetic field. I am energetically "wired" differently than most. Oftentimes, I walk into rooms and lights flicker. In my presence TVs and radios inexplicably turn on, or shut off by themselves. I have seen undulating waves of energy. It's a little freaky, but it's my life.
Let's keep in mind that highly energetic people are not necessarily "hyper “or "amped up." We might be. Or, as PMH Atwater, myself and countless others, we may just be experiencers. We appreciate you understanding that distinction.
