Frequently Asked Questions about the NextStage Expanded Awareness Society
There is more information available, far more.
In order to experience all that is available to you, you must work and train to expand your awareness. As you do, your ability to bring change into your life and the lives of others grows exponentially. You and what you’re capable of are greater than you can possibly imagine.
What we’ve learned and continue to explore can be summed up as “The Practice”.
These practices span a variety of techniques from many different traditions, sciences and cultures.
There are many things to learn, and many teachers who can help you. When you’re ready, you can start your Journey here with us. Learn more about The Practice here.
As you progress in the practice, your experiences may include things you may currently consider miraculous. Your experiences may include things you cannot currently explain.
The Practice does not ask you to worship anything, it teaches you to experience far more of life and reality than you do now, for yourself. You may choose to take what you learn here and apply it to your religious or spiritual practices and that’s entirely your decision.
But for the sincere student who wishes to experience more and be more than they are now, The Practice will give you as much as you give it. You will be able to access more information through newly awakened senses, be able to make better decisions, and lead a more fulfilling life.
If you would prefer a more intense introduction, personal training is available as well.

Other Frequently Asked Questions
For example, telepathy – mind reading – isn’t something we do. However, some of the things we’re trained to do is sense other people’s energies, to use some specific senses in specific ways, recognize the difference between what we’re experiencing and what the other person is experiencing, …
Sum all these up and we can “know” what someone is thinking without reading their mind, per se. Modern cognitive science has recently recognized this ability and named it “Theory of Mind”.
The actual methods of contacting a dead relative are based on the answer given above. There are things we train to do that achieve this and not the way most people think. The Universe is a big place. When someone passes over they literally pass over. Contacting them requires your willing to travel to where they are. You may think they’re right beside you (and indeed, in some dimensions they might be) and remember, the Universe creates point-to-point straight lines by collapsing quantum realities. Unless you’re willing to learn how to travel and navigate multidimensionally, be prepared to work.
However, one of the things our teachers taught us is that people will come to you who need you.
Lately (the past year or so) more and more people have come to us for training. That’s been different. People have always sought us out for some one specific thing; marriage difficulties, health problems, psychological challenges, lost pets, thanatological concerns, things like that. What’s different now is that more and more people are coming to us to learn how to do these things for themselves and to discover their own, personal skills, talents and abilities.
So we asked those who study with us if “going public” was a worthy thing to do.
Much to our surprise, they loved the idea. They encouraged us with a vengeance.
Then we asked our teachers and their answers all came down to their original statement; People will come to you who need you.
So this is a great experiment for us. It’s going to be fun.
Neither overwhelmed (because you will not comprehend what is happening) nor underwhelmed (because you will be disappointed), so merely whelmed.
Some will read this and decide we’re playing word games.
So we are!
And to those who so decide we say “seek enlightenment elsewhere” because their cup is already full, although when they drink of it they only thirst more, hence go from classroom to classroom until they find a teacher who will slap their cup from their hands.
That’s not our way. We’ll invite you to first empty your cup, put it down or take up a new cup.
PS) That’s all part of The Practice, once you start studying it.
Living with Intention must apply to everything you do until it elevates the mundane into sacred activity.
Take “vacuuming the floors”. Most people vacuum because “it has to be done”. When vacuuming stops being “something you have to get one” and starts being “this thing You are doing”, when you being the best vacuumer you can be is more important than vacuuming the floor because it has to be done, things which merely fill your day will instead be things that make your day complete.
Corollary #1: The floor is vacuumed in both cases. For the former, the act brings a sense of joy and fulfillment. For the latter, it is merely a task, something to get done so that something else, some other equally unfulfilling task, can get done.
Corollary #2: You must realize that, in both instances, vacuuming is being done with intent and, if you wish to honor the former’s intention you must honor the latter’s intention because “getting it done” is the best intention they have at the time they’re vacuuming.
