#93 Hudson Valley Anomalies with WHAM

WHAM

This is Dr. C. S. Matthews, a.k.a. Wahabah Hadia Al Muid, a.k.a. Professor WHAM author of the book Mysterious Beauty: Living With the Paranormal in The Hudson Valley.

On October 1, 2019, Fahrusha was pleased to speak with Dr. C. S. Matthews about her exciting new book Mysterious Beauty: Living With the Paranormal in The Hudson Valley. She is the sometimes co-host of the podcast “The Church of Mabus” and teaches at a college in the Hudson Valley.

Our fascinating discussion covered a lot of ground, from the geology of the region to Native American beliefs and history through the Dutch and British settlers to the present time. In reading the book, Fahrusha was horrified to discover that she was born on or near the site of a massacre of Native Americans by some renegade Dutch in what is now Jersey City!

What is very wonderful about this book is that it gives people living in the Hudson Valley from Manhattan to above Albany (and those curious and intrepid travellers from points unknown) a tool to begin their quest for the anomalous right here in our backyard. Everything from ancient earthworks, to present day cryptids and UFOs can be found in the glorious Hudson Valley, along with the world’s best apples.

This episode is a natural follow on to our last episode with Susan Demeter St. Clair in which we touched upon some of the same subjects involving the Great Lakes region of Canada and N.Y. State.

“Shattered Reality Podcast” wishes to acknowledge sometimes contributor Stephanie Quick for introducing us to Professor WHAM.

We appreciate hearing about our listeners’ anomalous accounts. If you wish to be included in the “Listeners’ Corner” either as an on-air guest or would like to have your written account read, please contact fahrusha@fahrusha.com.

Rosalyn Berne Horse Whisperer #31

Listen here.

Rosalyn Berne’s life has been filled with mystical experiences throughout, but by far her most unusual gift to date has been her ability to communicate with horses. She is in fact a genuine horse whisperer.

Kate Valentine and Fahrusha, both animal lovers and communicators themselves, were pleased to be able to speak to Rosalyn Berne about her unusual gift. What makes Rosalyn different from other animal communicators is her unique ability, on occasion, to elicit complex and abstract thoughts from her equine companions. Most good animal communicators are able to understand the creature with whom they are interfacing well enough to determine the creature’s feelings, needs, likes and dislikes, and their traumas and illnesses. Receiving abstract thoughts about other subjects is highly unusual.

Something that I (Fahrusha) forgot to mention during the podcast is that the word for little horse in Schwitzer Deutsch (Swiss German) is Rösli and the name Roselind refers not to roses in its derivation but to being a horse woman. Coincidence?

She is the author of four books and is working on a fifth. Her two published works on her mystical life and her equine communication abilities are Waking to Beauty: Encounters with Remarkable Beings (2016) and When the Horses Whisper (2014). In addition Dr. Berne is a professor in the field of Science, Technology, & Society (STS) at the University of Virginia.

Kate Valentine and Fahrusha are honored to welcome Dr. Guy McPherson of the archived radio show “Nature Bats Last” to Shattered Reality Podcast. Dr. McPherson is a conservation biologist who has written numerous books, including most recently: Extinction Dialogs: How to Live with Death in Mind (with Carolyn Baker), Going Dark, and Walking Away From Empire: A Personal Journey.

This episode may be disturbing to many, because our guest causes us to consider the annihilation of homo sapiens and other species due to the ravages that civilization has wrought upon the biosphere of our dear Mother Earth. This conclusion does not arise from one single cause but a variety of contributing factors at play including burgeoning population, temperature rise, methane release, burning of fossil fuels, nuclear meltdowns and death of the oceans to name a few. It is quite important to listen to this, especially if you are a person who is deferring your joy to a time in the future when you believe things will be better for you. NOW is the best time, it is always now, so don’t postpone happiness.

“If you really think the environment is less important than the economy, try counting your money while holding your breath.” ~ Dr. Guy McPherson

We conclude this episode with a listener experience written by Adriana and narrated by Fahrusha. Adriana has had two major episodes of bi-location and one out-of-body experience, all in her native Romania.
