WHY TRADITIONAL CHRISTIAN BURIAL CEREMONIES ARE CHANGING
In Australia, people are voting with their
feet and choosing non-traditional burial services rather
than religious ones (see
report). Apart from the excessive expense and high
mark-ups charged by funeral companies, one of the biggest
criticisms of traditional religious services is their
inability to give comfort to the mourners.
Hugh Benson, communicating through medium Anthony Borgia,
gives this example taken from his church's burial service:
"...From morning watch even until night, let
Israel hope in the Lord .... And he shall
redeem Israel from all his iniquities
..." As he says, how can the mention of Israel
help anyone who has just crossed over, or their loved
He also claims that "Church burial services, as they
are at present constituted, both as to time of performance
and spiritual content, are mostly TOO LATE to be of any
practical spiritual value to the departed person,"
since the moment the spirit leaves the body, it is met
by loved ones who will help the new arrival go to the
realm of the Light. This is the time when prayers are
most helpful, especially if the person has died suddenly
and may be in a state of some confusion. The many dedicated
ministers of religion deserve more support in being able
to give those who are grieving accurate knowledge of the
afterlife and support instead of meaningless platitudes.

WHY NEAR DEATH EXPERIENCES ARE
EVIDENCE OF AN AFTERLIFE A
subscriber, Alex, sent me an email asking me to rebut
some of the arguments raised by skeptics (including
a negatively entrenched atheist, Matt
D.) who claim that NDEs have a purely physical cause
and have nothing to do with the afterlife. Clearly NDEs
are a having a transformative effect on mainstream consciousness
which is highly disturbing to materialists. Almost every
other month someone comes up with a fanciful attempt
to explain them away. But, as I have been saying for
more than 20 years, there are more than 15 reasons why
the evidence shows that NDEs are evidence that consciousness
extends outside the physical brain and body. Read
A PSYCHOLOGIST'S AMAZING DISCOVERIES AFTER HER NEAR-DEATH
EXPERIENCE Clinical psychologist,
Dr. Kathy Forti, shares how her heart stopped and, after
she was helped to return to Earth, she was led to information
about physics, sacred geometry, and mathematics.
OF THE AFTERLIFE DIMENSION "Every
single soul who comes to this realm
(Third Level) is awestruck by its utter beauty, harmony
and sense of emotional wholeness. It is as though any
negative elements which are encountered on Earth have
been completely eliminated, and the beauties and joys
of the Earth plane have been multiplied a hundredfold."
WHAT IS PHYSICAL MEDIUMSHIP? In
physical mediumship the spirits communicate directly
with people present in a way that everyone can hear,
feel and sometimes see.
There are many different types of this rare kinds of
mediumship, from the moving of objects, apports, table
tipping, transfiguration, direct voice mediumship (like
Leslie Flint) and, in the most developed cases, full
materialisations. Wendy and I feel privileged to have
experienced physical mediumship with a number of mediums
all over the world and consider genuine physical mediumship
to be the greatest form of evidence for the afterlife.

QUESTION: What kind of
a body are we going to have the moment we transition
from life on earth to the afterlife?
"I have a body which is a duplicate of
what I had on earth, the same hands, legs and feet,
and they move the same as yours do. The etheric spirit-body
I had on earth interpenetrated the physical body. The
etheric spirit-body is the real body and an exact
duplicate of our earth body. At death we just emerge
from our flesh covering and continue our life in the
etheric world, functioning by means of the etheric spirit-body
just as we functioned on earth in the physical body.
The etheric spirit-body is just as substantial to us
now, as the physical body was to us when we lived on
earth. We have the same sensations. When we touch an
object we can feel it, when we look at something we
can see it..." (from Arthur Findlay Looking
Back, 1988 ed. p.215.)

ROBERT SCHWARTZ: COURAGEOUS SOULS / YOUR SOUL'S PLAN
The book tells the stories
of ten individuals who claim that, before birth, they
planned to experience great challenges. Working with
four gifted mediums and channels, author Robert Schwartz
discovers what they chose, and why. He presents actual
pre-birth planning sessions in which souls discuss their
hopes for their upcoming lifetimes. In so doing he opens
a window to the other side where we, as eternal beings,
design both our trials and our potential triumphs.
THOUGHTS IN THE AFTERLIFE?
Can spirits hide their thoughts from each other? Can
they hide themselves from one another?
"No; with them everything is open, and especially
so with those who have attained to perfection. They
may withdraw from one another, but they are always visible
to each other. This, however, is not an absolute rule,
for the higher spirits are perfectly able to render
themselves invisible to the lower ones, when they consider
it to be useful to do so." (Spirits Book,

ARE LOVED ONES, RELATIVES AND FRIENDS ALWAYS REUNITED
ON CROSSING OVER? This
is a frequently asked question. The natural law of the
Spirit tells us
"like attracts like." This means that on crossing
over, we will find ourselves living in the afterlife with
those who share the same intersts and are more or less
on the same spiritual level as we are. Those who are more
advanced may choose to spend time with us through ties
of love, just as we may choose to spend time with those
we are helping.
DO ANIMALS HAVE 'GUIDES?'
"I'll get straight away to the point. Do animals
dogs, cats, horses, elephants, dolphins, whales, etc.)
have soul guides to help protect and lead them through
their daily lives? Each individual animal certainly has
their own unique personality. How are they guided? Thank
you." Bob. Victor:
No, animals do not have soul guides; human beings have
soul-guides for continuous spiritual refinement.
We are credibly informed from afterlife teachers that
animals pass on what they learn during lifetimes on earth
to their species which becomes part of their inborn knowledge.
House pets have their vibrations raised when they interact
with humans and they will survive physical death; they
will be waiting for us when the time comes. There is no
dispute about that, it comes directly from the afterlife.
WISE WORDS FROM SPIRIT
“The world will not be converted in a blinding flash
like Saul on the road to Damascus. Gradually, the light
of spiritual truths will break through, as more people
become aware of the great knowledge and more instruments
are available for the power of the Great White Spirit
to use. You must remember that the things of the spirit
require careful nurture and progress. Sudden conversions
would not be enduring, and our work is intended to be
“Each soul that becomes an instrument
for the Great Spirit, each soul that moves out of darkness
into the light, out of ignorance into knowledge, out
of superstition into truth, is helping to advance the
world, for each one of these is a nail that is driven
into the coffin of the world’s materialism.”

to the recording of the couple who sat with George Anderson.
I had a similar experience of knowing my daughter was
leaving, and I also experienced seeing her twice, the
2nd time talking with her, and her hugging me. She had
another little girl with her that I now know is the
child I lost in 1987. I kick myself sometimes for doubting
what I know to be true. Thankful for the research and
resources and thank you so much for the work you and
Wendy do." Terri.
