THE MIND IS NOT THE BRAIN
Materialists claim that once the brain ceases to function,
we cease to exist. In their view, our consciousness,
our sense of ourselves, is an illusion created by the
physical brain and therefore life after death cannot
Craig Hogan Ph.D., President of AREI, has put together
three videos which assemble the evidence that "The
mind is not created by the brain, is not housed in the
brain and does not use the brain to function in the
material realm.' He explains that understanding this
is fundamental to understanding the nature of the
first video, (below) he looks at the evidence that:
1) the brain does not have the capacity to hold a life's
2) remote viewers can see without eyes or brain
3) near-death experiencers, including people blind from
birth, see and hear things without eyes or brain involved.
second video, he shows that:
4) some people function perfectly well without a brain
5) some people with deteriorated brains recover before
6) bodies react to images before the brain processes
7) savants display motor skills their brain cannot provide
8) people function normally after leaving the body
9) people can have sudden changes in their whole personality
with a different language and knowledge

travels over sensory nerves during thinking or sensory
DR. PIM VAN LOMMEL TALKS ABOUT THE FALSE ASSUMPTION
THAT CONSCIOUSNESS IS A PRODUCT OF THE BRAIN Mel
Van Dusen interviews renowned cardiologist Pim van Lommel
about his research into the near-death experience and
its implications for a radically new paradigm for living
in the 21st century.
a very important scientist and
inventor who is collaborating with ITC researchers from
the afterlife realm said it best:
“The day science begins to study non-physical
phenomena, it will make more progress in one decade
than in all the previous centuries of its existence.
To understand the true nature of the universe, one must
think in terms of energy, frequency, and vibration.”
SARAH AND BRENT HINZE: VISIONS OF FUTURE CHILDREN IN
NEAR-DEATH EXPERIENCES For
over 20 years the authors have pioneered a groundbreaking
new area of research: the Pre-birth Experience (PBE).
A PBE is a spiritual experience or vision that involves
contact with one or more unborn souls. A PBE can occur
during an NDE or in other ways. The authors have collected
hundreds of these accounts.

We have often talked
about the importance of preserving the knowledge of
the great mediums of the past and are seriously indebted
to historian N. Riley Heagerty for his books on Emily
French and The
Bangs Sisters. Now he has published a wonderful
new book, Spectral Evidence: Volume 1. It is the first
in a series, about well-documented evidence of some
of the greatest mediums from the astounding records
of Historic Spiritualism. From famous lawyers, doctors
and every walk of life and intellect, these are the
eye-witness documents that for the most part have been
swept under the carpet of prejudice and denial. Read

(ITC) WILL REVOLUTIONIZE KNOWLEDGE OF THE AFTERLIFE We
are informed that the afterlife scientists are working
very hard to perfect ITC - and when that happens, an
afterlife revolution will take place because we would
actually watch and hear people - including VIP's - as
they were on earth and with the voices they had on earth.
This, in fact, is going on to-day but those involved
are keeping quiet about it. More about this magnificent
phenomenon later on. See Dr.
Senkowski's magnificent book on ITC

FORGIVENESS DAY I
suggest that we should have one day a year where we
make an effort to forgive all those who in some way
have hurt us.
Forgiveness is a sure way of gaining spiritual refinement.
On many occasions, I have heard mediums say that, once
people cross over, their perspectives change. Often
people who were separated by small grudges while alive
seem to be reconciled. The more advanced spirits ask
their relatives to forgive the person who was responsible
for their death and not to seek revenge. Forgiveness
seems to be an important lesson for us to learn both
here and when we cross over. So let us pick a day of
the year - and call it FORGIVENESS DAY!
QUESTION: Are mediums reading the minds of the sitters? Victor:
'Proxy sitting’ refers to a situation where a
person attends a mental mediumship session on behalf
else. The medium would be giving messages for an unknown
person who not present. Even the sitter may not know
the person they the proxy for. How can that be mind
reading? One afterlife investigator, the Rev. Charles
Drayton Thomas, was involved in many proxy sittings.
Williams Kelly in her paper Directions
for Mediumship Research reviews the past work on
proxy sittings and argues that there is an urgent need
to conduct more modern studies using this method (p.256
- 279). Raising funds to support
this kind of research is one of the goals of the Afterlife
Research and Education Institute.
QUESTION: Will a family on earth
continue to survive in the afterlife as the same family?
There are what one could call 'Family
Soul Groups' - but these groups are not based on 'blood'
relationship at all. They are based on a 'spiritual'
relationship. It is possible, even likely, that a member
of your physical family on earth is from your Soul Group.
Those who study reincarnation claim that we reincarnate
with members of our soul group in different relationships:
fathers become sons, wives become brothers.
But there are some families where the children do not
have a close spiritual relationship with their parents
or siblings and on crossing over they would be just
like other spirits with no special connection to you.
LESSONS FROM THE DYING By
having an opportunity to work closely with the dying,
Marie-Jo Cleghorn learned three lessons that have given
her a unique perspective on why your words matter and
how to make our time count.
TRUE WEALTH AND TRUE NOBILITY "Rank,
title, profession or calling, the colour of skin - what
are these in the sight of the Great Spirit? True wealth
and true nobility are of the soul, the spirit, the mind;
for these are the eternal realities...I know it is hard
for you who are encased in matter to think in terms
of spiritual reality, but that is the purpose of my
return, to try and help you adjust yourselves to get
the true perspective of life." (Ortzen (ed)
A Voice in the Wilderness p. 48)

Wendy. You guys are the best for informing us with vital
information concerning the afterlife evidence, you have
helped me so much with the questions I have sent to
you. Last night in my dream I saw my dad, in a different
appearance, much younger & so happy, I've never
seen him like that, so chilled & happy! He asked
me for a cuddle, something he never did when he was
alive, it was lovely & so lovely to see him unconditionally
happy." Rose xxx

INSPIRATIONAL MUSIC: ONE OF THE
MOST BEAUTIFUL PRAYERS OF ALL "Make
me a Channel of Your Peace", sung
by the student choir of Dragon School Oxford,
is attributed to the 13th-century saint, Francis of Assisi.
However, the prayer in its present form cannot be traced
back further than 1912 when it was printed in France in
French, in a small spiritual magazine called La Clochette
(The Little Bell) as an anonymous prayer. Read
more about the "Prayer of St Francis".
