Who am I? What happens when I die? Information about scientific discoveries and recent empirical evidence available on this website will help those looking for answers to these questions.

Tom Cain BeAwake

My name is Tom Cain. I am a retired entrepreneur with a longtime passion for spiritual awakening and deepening. Humanity is at an unprecedented time in its evolution, and there has never been a more crucial time for individuals to realize their true nature. I created this website to help those who might benefit from what I have experienced and realized.

This website is a resource for those who are ready to explore their own spirituality and potential for spiritual awakening based on research. Recent scientific discoveries and the Information Age provide a wealth of data never before available for spiritual exploration. I have analyzed this information extensively, and some of it is available for you on this website in the form of books, organizations, videos, and websites. May you experience more love, peace and joy as you learn about and deepen into your spiritual nature.

Science tells us that everything in the universe is made of energy; matter is simply compressed energy. The first law of thermodynamics states that energy cannot be created or destroyed. If what you are is energy that can’t be destroyed, what happens to it when your body dies?

“Reality is merely an illusion, although a very persistent one.” — Albert Einstein

non-physical phenomena

The current practice of mainstream medicine is based on materialism, which means nothing exists except matter. Doctors view the body as a type of machine that is controlled by the brain and nervous system. This is in contrast to the body being a unified field of energy. Our bodies are organized energy and function as dynamic energy systems. 

Your body has more than 60 trillion cells. Recently scientists in the field of bioelectromagnetics have discovered that each and every one of your cells operate as a little wireless transmitter and receiver of electromagnetic energies, including visible light. You are quite literally a being of light. Learn more about the science and history of energy healing.

A near-death experience (NDE) is a profound experience that happens to a person whose physical body is deeply traumatized or close to death and whose consciousness then leaves the body temporarily.

It is estimated that one in twenty people have had an NDE. As a result of the significant number of people reporting these experiences, a number of scientific studies have been completed and published. Anyone with a fear of death would be well-served to learn about such truly amazing experiences.

An Out-of-Body Experience (OBE) is an inherent part of the Near-Death Experience, which is an unexpected incident. There is another kind of OBE that is intentionally planned by someone who is skilled at projecting their consciousness out of their physical body. This activity is known as astral projection. Accounts of the adventures into non-physical realms by people who are skilled in astral projection are most extraordinary.

Reincarnation is the belief that the spirit or soul of a living being begins a new life in a different body after biological death. Based on a 2021 Pew Research Center report, 33% of U.S. adults believe in reincarnation.

The first major study of reincarnation was conducted by Dr. Ian Stevenson. His fourteen books documenting his international fieldwork authenticated the evidence of three thousand cases of children who remembered their past lives.

Reincarnation was taught in early Christianity; however, it was effectively banned by Roman Emperor Justinian I in 543 CE.

A medium acts as a midway point between the worlds of the living and the dead. One who acts as a medium receives information from the spirit or soul of a departed person, which the medium then conveys to a living person (commonly a relative or friend) who often is actively seeking this communication. The increased media coverage of popular mediums has led to greater public awareness and acceptance of mediumship in recent years.

The sooner we make peace with death, the less frightened we will be when we confront it. It’s been said that a person can’t be fully alive and have a fear of death. As we become more comfortable with death, we become more comfortable with life.

The Death and Dying resource page introduces deathbed visions, after-death contacts, self-care during the grieving process, and managing care for the dying.

This free online 17-chapter book is intended to help Christians who love and believe in Jesus and his teachings of love and forgiveness to understand that much of Christian dogma is both untrue and in direct opposition to Jesus’ teachings.

Your beliefs are foundational to your existence; they have molded your life. We have all been programmed by people, systems, and institutions such as parents, religion, education, science, media, and politics. When beliefs are challenged, the mind becomes uncomfortable. Your mind may be uncomfortable right now. We live in a time of unprecedented chaos, discoveries, and information on a scale that did not exist even a few decades ago.

If you can let go of any fear about information that may challenge your belief system, and begin to explore the resources provided here, you may find a world of life-enriching possibilities. Lasting peace and happiness cannot be found in wealth, recognition, and possessions. Enduring love, peace, and joy are realized through spiritual awakening.  Humanity is at an unprecedented time in its evolution.
