Thomas Gates, founder of Healing Spectrums for Health and Wholeness™, is a speaker, author, healing facilitator and workshop leader. He is a contributing author to the Amazon Bestseller “Thank God I…” Volume 2. As a result of his extensive near death experience many years ago, Thomas discovered that he had an ability to perceive the subtlest layers of physiology and enliven people’s natural healing processes.
He now inspires and empowers audiences throughout the world with his presentations, workshops, training programs, and consultations, as he shares the unique healing gifts and insights that came from his remarkable near death journey.
Thomas offers personal and group healing sessions and teaches others how to use his simple, yet effective Healing Spectrums Self-Treatment technique. He also trains individuals and health care professionals how to use his programs for the treatment of others, as a complementary adjunct for ideal health and well-being.
Brain wave studies, currently underway, indicate certain brain function during the Healing Spectrums sessions that is known to activate and accelerate the body’s natural healing processes.
In addition, it is Thomas’ passion to share these experiences with young and old to help them remember and embrace what an amazing gift it is to be a human being—to experience that true, unbounded connection we have to everything and everyone throughout all creation, and to use that information to make ourselves and our world an even better place.
Thomas’ Story: How it all Began
Thomas was born in Texas in 1950 and grew up in the rural countryside not far from Dallas. He spent much of his childhood playing in the woods, observing the stars, the sky, the trees, the animals, the changing of seasons, and the effortless flow of nature’s way. As a result he quietly sensed that there must be one simple and powerful essence sustaining all this incredibly diverse creation.
Then, shortly before his twenty-second birthday, Thomas learned a unique and simple meditation technique that quickly confirmed his sense of what had been occurring in nature all along. It enlivened the experience of that deep, underlying silence–the silence that permeates and sustains the whole field of existence.
This peace and happiness lasted about one week when Thomas suddenly found himself being rushed to the hospital with a severe case of appendicitis. The doctors told him not to worry. It would just be a routine surgical procedure and that he would be home in three days. Little did he know that his life was about to be altered forever.
Thus began the prelude to an amazing journey that took him all the way through and beyond the “light” to the underlying, eternal source of our existence and all creation.
The Journey Begins
“Major infection had taken over my whole body as a result of emergency surgery just a few days earlier. I’m sure that I appeared to be unconscious to anyone who looked at me when the doctors announced, “We’ve done all we can. We’re not sure he’s going to make it.” I could not speak but I shouted inside, “That’s crazy! I’m not going to die!” Within a matter of moments I witnessed the process of slowly emptying out of my dying body.
“I soon “popped” out of my body and looked down at it from just above. At first, I didn’t recognize it but then I realized it was “me”. Or was it? “How could it be me when I’m up here looking at that tiny, empty shell?” That was the moment I realized that nobody really dies…
“As my journey continued I was greeted by six loving beings. I saw other souls departing as I entered an expanding tunnel and then a brilliant golden “light” appeared in the distance. Once I entered the light, for what seemed like an eternity, I was completely absorbed by its warm healing value. Then I continued on into an almost infinite, expanding field of subtler and subtler layers of creation. Finally I saw one last particle just as I left the field of manifested creation.
“Here, there was nothing to know, to be, or to do. It was just pure source and unmanifested potential to become manifested creation. I could only say what it was in the moment I magically “popped” back into that subtlest beginning layer of manifesting creation. It was in that moment that I realized the who, what, when, where, why, and how of our being. I understood our purpose for being and experienced an underlying and eternal connection to all creation, instantly realizing that nothing was separate from any other possible particle of the almost infinite, vast creation that lay before me. (audio 1:27)
“Upon returning to my body, I had no memory of ever having been here before. I did not know who I was, where I was, or even what I was. It was as if one life had ended and a new one began. All I knew was what I had just experienced my self and all creation to be; and thus began yet another amazing journey…”
