Meg Blackburn Losey, Ph.D., is the author of the international Best Seller, “The Children of Now”, “Conversations with the Children of Now”, "Pyramids of Light, Awakening to Multi-Dimensional Realities" and the Online Messages which are distributed globally.
She is a Keynote Speaker and has been presenting globally for years.
Dr. Meg has recently served as a consultant to Good Morning America and 20/20 News. Her expertise in relation to issues of children of the consciousness evolution is greatly in demand.
Dr. Meg is a Master Healer, speaker, and teacher. She is an Ordained Minister in both Spiritual Science and Metaphysics. She is a Ph.D. of Holistic Life Coaching and holds a Doctoral Degree in Metaphysics. She is a medical intuitive the developer of the Seventh Sense Attunement® healing process.
Having always been intuitive, her gifts came naturally in a progression of what she calls “cosmic two by fours”. As Dr. Meg began exploring higher aspects of consciousness alone on a mountain in North Carolina, she literally began to see and understand the dynamics of energy. In that process, Dr. Meg learned to combine higher consciousness, energy, movement and music into a process which later developed into her popular workshop “Movement to Spirit”®.
This combination created a perfect energetic opening to intentional inter-dimensional awareness which Meg calls the Seventh Sense… Beyond the sixth sense and into holographic reality.
During the expansion of her consciousness, Dr. Meg began to meet Masters from higher dimensions. The Masters began guiding Dr. Meg in the art of inter-dimensionality, healing, and, as she later understood, into the higher aspects of Universal Consciousness.
Accessing the Universal Mind became second nature for Dr. Meg as she explored inter- dimensional realms. Expanded consciousness became second nature for Dr. Meg and she calls this “being online all of the time” The ability to access multi-dimensionally has taught her how to receive information on virtually any subject including sciences such as physics, astrophysics, quantum physics, biochemistry and many others.
Dr. Meg soon learned to multi-facet her consciousness to become both the participant and the observer, remaining aware of all of her multi-dimensional aspects simultaneously. The Masters taught Dr. Meg how to apply the different energy forms to everyday life, learning and healing. She now uses these techniques in all aspects of her life and work.
Dr. Meg credits her experience to “paying attention, having absolutely no expectations, a huge amount of passion to learn, and most of all to a deep sense of humility…once you realize the bigger picture, you understand that you are a part of all things, all things being you, and knowing that there is no turning back.” She believes that everyone has the same capabilities for this experience, once they begin to understand how to use the tools, and Dr. Meg is happy to teach them!
She is an Advocate for who she calls “The Children of Now”, creating awareness in society, in schools and in families that assists these new and sensitive children to be comfortable just being who they are ~ Gifted beings with a message for humanity. The future of our world.
Dr. Meg Blackburn Losey is available by appointment for private sessions, seminars, lectures and workshops. To see if she will be in your area, please go to Dr. Meg's Schedule.
