PERSONAL EXPERIENCE AS AFTERLIFE EVIDENCE
Although we put emphasis on afterlife
evidence which is independently verifiable and repeatable,
we also regard personal experiences of afterlife contact
to be very important. The personal experience is compelling,
and many times it is far more convincing to that particular
person (and those they share the experience with) than
any eloquent scientific presentation of the afterlife
evidence. Like millions of others, I experienced direct
afterlife contact. These were powerful experiences which
changed my life completely because they were absolutely
and completely convincing.
The personal experience becomes important
as evidence when many people report the same things.
Millions of people have had near-death experiences which
are totally consistent. Many more have had out of body
experiences. And researchers have shown that more than
50% of people who lose a loved one experience some kind
of after-death communication.
And in many cases the communication is validated when
another person reports receiving the same message or
having the same dream. Sometimes a medium hears a spirit
person talk about sending the sign or message. So treasure
your personal experiences of the afterlife, your signs
and synchronicities, and, when opportunities arise,
share them with others who have had similar experiences.
You may be surprised at the validation you receive.
GREAT INTERVIEW WITH PROFESSOR
GARY SCHWARTZ Jean-Charles
Chabot, a podcaster from Montreal, conducts a very personal
interview with Dr. Gary Schwatz. He asks wonderful questions
probing the reasons why a scientist who grew up 100%
atheist now says he is more than 100% convinced by the
evidence for the afterlife. One interesting thing he
reveals is that he has learned that "mediumship
is catching - it rubs off on you."
"WHY CAN'T I SEE SPIRIT
PEOPLE THE WAY SOME MEDIUMS CAN?" The
famous Spiritualist trance medium Cora
Richmond was asked this question.
She replied: “Madam, did you see the glory of
the sunset sky last evening?" "No, I was making calls."
"Did you observe the beauty of Jupiter last night,
quite late? It must have been when you were driving
home from the opera?" "No, I was too sleepy."
After I asked her, "Have you not a longing to see
that beautiful picture from Italy painted by an American
artist?" and she replied "No, I have no
time, in fact, I do not love art."
I was no longer in doubt why she did not see spirits.

AFTERLIFE EXPERIENCES IN THE
EMERGENCY ROOM Dr. Jeff
O'Driscoll, emergency physician, shares some of his
experiences of afterlife contact in his hospital emergency
room that deepened his understanding of the connection
between life and death and the reality of the afterlife.
Dr. Jeff is the author of a wonderful book called Not
Yet which details his experience in more detail
- see his website.
DR. JEFF O'DRISCOLL AND JEFF
OLSEN After a horrible
accident that took the life of Jeff Olsen’s wife and
14-month-old son, Jeff was flown to a trauma center
for further care. In the trauma room, as other physicians
cared for an unconscious Olsen, Dr. O’Driscoll saw and
communicated with Olsen’s deceased wife. Olsen and O’Driscoll
would go on to become close friends and share a number
of spiritual experiences. Now you can hear some of their
stories up close and personal at Soul
DO WE HAVE FORM IN THE AFTERLIFE? Highly
credible information transmitted from the afterlife
states that, at least in the early stages of our life
on the astral plane,
"You will have all the senses that will enable
you to recognize others. You will have the entire spiritual
apparatus which is necessary to function in our world.
You will have form, you will have shape, you will have
individuality … What you must appreciate is that
to you matter is solid and tangible, and spirit is shadowy
and insubstantial. In our world spirit is the reality,
is tangible, and matter is the shadowy and the insubstantial.
You do not have any of the apparatus to make you speak
because you do not have to speak. All our communication
is done by thought. We send our thoughts to one another
and we are able to communicate as a result. Thought
is a reality in our world. Everything that exists is
created out of thought. And thus you can have whatever
you deem necessary for as long as you want it ….”
RAYMOND LODGE DESCRIBES HIS SPIRIT
the son of physicist Sir Oliver Lodge, was able to give
very specific details of his arrival in the afterlife
through trance medium Mrs
Gladys Osborne Leonard. Raymond discussed his new
body, saying: "My body is very similar to the one
I had before. I pinch myself sometimes to see if it's
real and it is, but it doesn't seem to hurt as much
as when I pinched the flesh before. He went on to say
that he still had internal organs, eyelashes, eyebrows,
tongue and teeth - and he was delighted that he had
got a new tooth in place of one that hadn't been quite
right." (Source: Raymond or Life and Death

RAYMOND LODGE MATERIALISED
was killed in World War I in 1915. Some 70 years later,
in 1984, he materialised through the mediumship of Rita
Gould. English medium Eddie Grenyer, who was present
at that seance, told his daughter "I was present
on one occasion when Raymond Lodge visited the circle
and conversed with the sitters. There were spirit lights
produced, and sitters could see the clear outline of
Raymond's boots and army uniform. He did not look completely
solid, but he was clearly materialised." Read
his full description of that seance.
HANS WILHELM EXPLAINS WHY HE
CREATES AFTERLIFE VIDEOS Hans
Wilhelm is a very successful author having written or
illustrated over 200 children's books. He is also a
lifelong seeker of spiritual wisdom having begun meditation
in his teens followed by deep study of the works of
Edgar Cayce. During the next decades, he explored many
other spiritual paths and met teachers like Byron Katie.
He attended numerous retreats all over the world and
also gave classes and workshops on the spiritual dynamics
of life. However, it was a personal experience following
the death of his father and validation through the medium
that caused him to begin his life-explained
series of videos.
WHEN A GREAT WEBSITE DISAPPEARS,
TRY THE WAYBACK MACHINE Last week
we included an account of
dream visit where a man saw his child before it was born.
There were many wonderful accounts of similar experiences
on the website www.prebirthmemories.com, which unfortunately
is no longer online. However, when a website that you
like has disappeared, you can sometimes retrieve earlier
versions by going to a search engine and typing in "Wayback
Machine". Then, in the search bar that comes
up, enter the url of the missing website. We did this
for "pre-birthmemories.com" and found the site
as it was in June 2018. Visit

HIGHLY INSPIRATIONAL MUSIC:
'THE PRAYER' Written
by David Foster and 3 others for the 1998 film 'Quest
for Camelot', The Prayer was originally recorded
in English by Canadian singer Celine Dion and in Italian
by Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli. Chuck Taylor from Billboard
reviewed their duet calling it "a breathtaking,
ultra-lush song, and the tour de force combination of
Dion and Bocelli [which] will send a half-dozen chills
up your spine." From the album CONCERTO ONE NIGHT
IN CENTRAL PARK.
