COMMENTARY: THE EXISTENCE OF
an empiricist (someone who uses scientific method to
test claims) I use the power of scientific observation.
When I look at the universe – seeing billions
and trillions of stars – I observe gravity, I
see order, I see 'INTELLIGENT PLANNING'. A tiny drop
of water, one millimeter in diameter, contains 5,000
billion atoms (5 plus 21 zeros!) all obeying the laws
of physics. I accept that the order that governs the
universe is the product of a UNIVERSAL MIND. I do NOT
accept that it all has come by 'chance', as some materialist
scientists such as Prof Hawking and Prof Dawkins believe.
Chance does not explain intelligent planning. There
has to be a 'Supreme Intelligence' behind the order."The possibility of life originating from
accident or chance is comparable to the probability
of the complete works of Shakespeare resulting from
an explosion in
a printing shop." Further, when Professor Albert
Einstein was asked, before he died, the same question
about God, he replied “Suppose I bring you a portrait
that wins everybody’s admiration, do we need to
see the artist? No, but we know that there is a MIND
that created the portrait.”
IMPORTANT MESSAGE FOR OUR TIMES
is the worst enemy of mankind. Fear is corrosive. Fear
saps, drains, vanquishes reason, overwhelms, keeps away
the very power that would enable you to conquer every
difficulty. Fear disturbs, prevents harmony, stops attunement,
causes wavering and doubt. Banish fear. Those who have
the knowledge should be tranquil, serene, confident, impossible
to be disturbed." (Guidance
from Silver Birch p. 39)
DR. EDWARD F. KELLY ON NEW SCIENTIFIC
INSIGHTS Dr. Edward
F. Kelly, from the University of Virginia Division of
Perceptual Studies, presents his research regarding
the nature of mind and brain. He also talks about the
shifting of the scientific paradigm beyond the current
limitations of mainstream material science.
THE CHAFFIN WILL CASE: AFTERLIFE COMMUNICATION THOUGH
of the most investigated cases of evidential dream communication
occurred in June 1925. James Chaffin, who had died four
years earlier, appeared to his second son, James Pinkney
Chaffin, in a dream. He told him that he had written
a later will than the one which had been accepted.
According to the younger James, his father appeared
to him dressed as he had in life. "You will find
the will in my overcoat pocket," the spirit figure
said. The family found the father's overcoat which had
been given to one of the sons. Sewn in the lining of
the pocket was a piece of paper directing them to a
page in the old man's Bible. And sure enough, the later
will was there.
There was a trial because the family farm was then in
the hands of the widow of the son who was the beneficiary
of the earlier will. Experts testified that the later
will, leaving the farm to all the sons equally, was
indeed written in James Sr.’s handwriting. Ten
of James Sr.'s friends also stated that the later will
was in his handwriting. Read
the details of this case.
SHARED NEAR-DEATH EXPERIENCE AND
PET SPIRIT GUIDES Jan &
John Price discuss their incredible shared Near-Death
experience. Rather than being greeted by deceased relatives
on the other side, Jan was guided by her dog, Maggie,
who had died 3 weeks before. She was told that the purpose
of life was to experience joy.
I received a couple of emails complaining that some
stated that he does not accept Near Death Experiences
as being anything other than the workings of a dying
brain and that "therefore there is no afterlife."
In professional debate, that is called a classic 'non-sequitur'
- it does not follow. First, no one has ever been able
to rebut the 15
lines of evidence, supported by many brilliant scientists,
that NDEs are NOT simply products of the brain.
Secondly, NDEs are only one line of evidence that consciousness
can exist outside the body. The skeptic has the burden
of dealing with another NINETEEN areas of afterlife
evidence (see A Lawyer Presents the Evidence for the
Afterlife). In the last thirty years, no genius skeptical
scientist has ever even attempted to rebut the evidence
as a whole.
PROFESSOR ERLENDUR HARALDSSON TALKS WITH ROBERTA GRIMES
Forty years ago, Icelandic
researchers Erlendur Haraldsson and Karlis Osis conducted
the first very large-scale study ever done of deathbed
visions, a major category of afterlife evidence. Their
important book, At
the Hour of Death, demonstrates conclusively that
the beautiful events surrounding death that so many of
the dying describe are genuine and universal. Erlendur
talks about what they learned then, and what it means
for us today. Listen.

POLTERGEISTS: ARE THEY EVIDENCE
OF THE AFTERLIFE? There
have been tens of thousands of poltergeist (noisy spirit)
incidents recorded. Many people have seen solid objects
flying in the air, huge kitchen cabinets levitating,
plates, glasses and clothing set on fire. Usually they
stop after a few months. Materialists argue that they
are caused by the "exteriorisation" of the
energy of a young person coming into puberty. But if
that was the case there would be poltergeist events
in every house where there is a teenager!!!
investigators believe that poltergeists are sometimes
spirits. Dr. Ian Stevenson in his paper ‘Are Poltergeists
Living or are they Dead?’ (1972) suggests a spirit
is the cause where:
• objects seem to be carried and deposited gently
• the subject is disadvantaged or injured by the
• meaningful responses are obtained from raps
• apparitional and visual phenomena occur early
• communications come through mediums from apparent
• the phenomena cease upon intercession, placation
or exorcism. Read

SIGNS FROM SPIRIT Speaking
from the spirit world,
through direct voice medium Leslie Flint, Mickey explains
how spirits send signs to their loved ones that they are
around them; Roberta Grimes' book The
Fun of Staying in Touch explains how this works.
"You see, we do try and do silly things, I mean you
would be surprised. I mean we do all sorts of odd bits
and pieces. We move objects on shelves sometimes, or take
flowers out of their vases, to give them an idea that
we’ve been there. If it’s possible to do anything
simple like that, we do it." Mickey,
Leslie Flint's spirit helper.
DR. JIM TUCKER: CHILDREN WHO REMEMBER PAST LIVES
In this fascinating video, Dr. Jim Tucker, author of
'Return to Life' and 'Life Before Life', and director
of the UVA The Division of Perceptual Studies, presents
his research regarding small children who remember details
of a previous life. He also offers some history about
the founding of the Division of Perceptual Studies at
UVA by Dr. Ian Stevenson.
SPIRIT GUIDE SAYS WE PLAN OUR LIVES
"You may wonder why, when life deals you a difficult
hand, circumstances are encountered that stretch you
to the very limits of endurance and you ask the questions
'Why me? Why this? Why now?' Yet often, these experiences
form part of a larger, unseen picture, determined by
the choices you made from the soul level, even before
this facet of your greater self incarnated.
do not exclude free will, but are very much a part of
it. Life is never wholly predetermined, but operates
always within the parameters laid down before birth,
by your higher self. There are no accidents or victims
of fate. Natural law operates with ceaseless perfection
and encompasses always, the will of every soul and the
karma of which it is part. " WHITEFEATHER-
THE QUIET MIND
THE IMPORTANCE OF DETACHMENT Information
transmitted from the other side states that those people
who cross-over with extremely strong emotional attachments
and "unfinished business" can be drawn back
to what they are strongly connected with.
It is reported that former president Richard Nixon crossed
over with extremely strong psychological and emotional
attachment to the White House regarding the Watergate
scandal. He was thoroughly humiliated - internationally
- something that rigidly stuck with him - so now after
death he was reported to have been observed walking the
halls of the White House as a spirit - most likely in
confusion trying to 'clear his name' as one psychic stated.
DOES PRAYER FOR THE SICK HELP?
have many reports of people during near-death experiences
and out-of-body experiences saying that they felt the
prayers of others like beams of light, or that the prayers
of others actually
brought them back.
Several studies over the last few decades have also found
that praying for someone’s health may help that
person’s health improve. Leanne Roberts at the University
of Oxford’s Hertford College conducted a meta-analysis
published in 2007, titled “Intercessory
Prayer for the Alleviation of Ill Health.” Roberts
found significant results: the odds that the improvement
was due to prayer and not chance were greater than 100,000
to one. She concluded: “The evidence presented so
far is interesting enough to support further study.”

1) Dear Wendy and Victor, I wanted to write and let you
know how much I enjoy your Afterlife-Evidence newsletter.
My beautiful husband passed into Spirit this past year.
We had (have) a magical relationship and I miss his physical
presence something awful.The only thing that has kept
me sane during this time of grief has been reading books
and familiarizing myself with other resources like your
newsletter that assure me that Paul is with me and that
we will be fully reunited when it is my turn to pass.
So, it is with deepest gratitude that I look forward to
devouring your newsletter each and every week. Warmly,
2) Hello Victor! I have listened to the video clip about
the near death experience of the orthopedic surgeon Tony
Cicoria, and then I googled his name. I find that after
this experience, he started to get very interested in
classical music to the point of obsession. He bought himself
a piano and spent all his spare time practicing. Then
he started getting powerful inspiration to compose his
own music. I looked on Amazon and there was a CD of his
compositions for sale. I thought I'd share this for those
who only watched the video clip and didn't realize there
is more to the story.
3) I am still following up on all the great reads from
last week. Incredibly interesting goodies in the NDE article
from last week. Karen.
