“I have been a singer/songwriter my entire life. My mother died when I was six weeks old at the amusement park, Great Adventure, on a roller coaster. Ever since that moment, I have had a connection to the spiritual realm. I evolved through the years through many great teachers. When I was eighteen years old, I was in a bad mental state. A friend introduced me to some writings. I attempted the meditation techniques within the book, and to my surprise, I went through an out of body experience in a very real and literal sense. I flew above my body, looked back down and zoomed through the floor, into an underground tunnel. I was floating down a stream, with roots hanging down into the subterranean cavity. I could hear thousands of voices, in which many started to converge into a single question: “Who is Eddie Shiffler?” At the end of the tunnel was a light. The voices began to unnerve me, so I imposed my will upon the situation and declared, “I AM!” At that moment, I began to lose the ability to continue down the stream, and soon returned to my body, feeling exhausted and electrically twitching. It was the last time I ever questioned the existence of my soul.”
