COMMENTARY: SALUTING MEDICAL
PROFESSIONALS WHO SHARE THEIR AFTERLIFE EXPERIENCES
and paramedics deal with life and death on a daily basis.
So it is interesting that in
a 2005 survey of 1,044 doctors in the USA, 76 percent
said they believe in God, 59 percent said they believe
in some sort of afterlife, and 55 percent said their
religious beliefs influence how they practice medicine.
This in spite of a professional culture which vigorously
promotes scientific materialism.
Researcher Dr. Farr Curlin, who was involved in the
above study, attributed this to the fact that doctors
differ from scientists or psychologists in that they
have direct and intimate contact with patients in life-and-death
A number of doctors and nurses have bravely stepped
forward to describe their own near-death experiences
and to conduct investigations of the experiences of
patients. For some time IANDS (The International Association
for Near-Death Experiences) has been working to encourage
doctors and nurses to understand and speak out about
While NDEs are critically important, there are many
other areas of afterlife experiences which medical staff
need to feel free enough to share, in order to help
their patients. Fortunately, the climate of opinion
is changing and this is beginning to happen.
PHYSICIANS ON HOW THEY HANDLE
NDES IN THEIR MEDICAL PRACTICE Physician
panelists Mary Neal, Rebecca Valla, James Kwako and
Rajiv Parti will share how near-death experiences and
knowledge of the afterlife have impacted their practices.
UNTOLD STORIES: MIRACULOUS EXPERIENCES DOCTORS ARE HESITANT
TO SHARE WITH THEIR PATIENTS, OR ANYONE" After a miraculous experience
where he was given knowledge that a patient needed a
lung scan, which ultimately saved his life, Dr.
Scott Kolbaba became intrigued by unexplained phenomena
which many doctors see during their professional careers.
He spent three years compiling this anthology of experiences
by 27 physicians (he actually gathered experiences from
DR. JEFF O'DRISCOLL'S NEW BOOK
"NOT YET" It's
refreshing to meet an emergency care physician who is
willing to go public with his spiritual experiences.
In his professional experience, Dr. O’Driscoll
frequently communicated with spirits who hovered between
this life and the next. He saw people leave their bodies
at the time of death and he experienced eternity with
them. In his new book 'Not Yet',Jeff O'Driscoll
M.D. describes his otherworldly communications that
began in childhood, shortly after the farm accident
that took the life of his older brother. In addition
to 'Not Yet', Dr. O’Driscoll recently published
six beautiful children’s books and his first novel.
He also paints and sculpts.See 'Not
Yet: Near-Life Experiences & Lessons Learned.'
Dr. O'Driscoll will be our guest on next Sunday's Zoom
Afterlife Global Gathering.
DR. JOHN L. TURNER During
his career as a neurosurgeon in Hawaii, Dr. Turner's
curiosity drove him to explore nontraditional healing
techniques that broadened the scope of recovery for
his patients. In his fascinating book, Medicine,
Miracles, and Manifestations he discusses
* How metaphysical events such as remote viewing, telepathy,
consciousness, and life after death are all verifiable
manifestations of the way the human brain interfaces
with the universal consciousness.
*That consciousness persists after the death of the
*That our life is carefully planned before birth but
there is an element of free will.
*That we can interface with a spiritual world and a
collective human unconscious.

included scientists, doctors, physiotherapists who shared
their latest research in their field.

SPIRITISM IN BRAZIL
Luis Sergio Marotta joined us from Brazil
for Last Sunday;s Global Gathering to give us an introduction
to the fascinating world of Brazilian Spiritism. We
hope this will be the first of many occasions when he
WILLIAM STAINTON MOSES AND HIS
'SPIRIT TEACHINGS' William Stainton
Moses (1839–92) was an Anglican clergyman. On
March 30, 1873, spirit messages started coming through
Moses’ hand by means of “automatic writing.”
This method was adopted, Moses was informed, for convenience
purposes and so that he could preserve a connected body
of teaching. Those teachings were compiled in two books,
'Spirit Teachings' and 'More
Both books are regarded as Spiritualism's greatest classic
containing the religious, philosophical and ethical
implications of Spiritualism, as viewed by the spirit
world. The communicators, by their logic, compelled
their medium to abandon, stage by stage, his orthodox
religious beliefs. They gave clear evidence of their
high purpose and furnished him with irrefutable proofs
of Survival. See the
entire collection of Keith Parsons Spiritual Evidence
SCIENCE AND THE AFTERLIFE
Quantum physics is the study of the characteristics of
between subatomic particles and energies. Unorthodox physicists
tell us this important research has a strong bearing on
the understanding of the paranormal and the afterlife.
These physicists are discovering no conflict at all between
physics and belief in the paranormal and the afterlife.
Indeed, they are showing that the phenomena we now call
'paranormal' are normal and consistent with the laws of
CAROLINE MYSS AND DR. NORM SHEALY
More than 25 years ago, a Harvard-trained neurosurgeon
and researcher named Norman Shealy was introduced to
a young woman with a special gift: she could “see”
illness in other people with only her intuition to guide
her. After extensive testing,
Dr. Shealy concluded that her ability to diagnose illness—even
from remote distances—was 93% accurate. Today
that “medical intuitive”—Caroline
Myss—is a legend in the field of intuition and
energy healing, with five New York Times bestsellers
to her credit.
MINISTER'S DAUGHTER DEMONSTRATES
STUNNING MEDIUMSHIP Dr.
Horace Westwood was
a Unitarian minister in Canada at the beginning of last
century. After becoming interested in spirit contact
he bought a ouija board but nothing happened until his
eleven-year-old daughter Anna began to touch the planchette.
Even when she was blindfolded it spelled out long a
detailed messages even when the letters were randomly
scattered. She soon was able to:
* type quickly while blindfolded (she had never learned
* read a book that was placed in the next room,
* play chess and play the piano far better than she
had previously been able to
* talk about hunting and trapping with professionals
although she had never learned.
All these things she did while fully conscious when
"the spirits" were present. When the spirit
team left six years later all these abilities disappeared.

Psychic World', Crown Publishers, 1949, pp. 3-4.

" Do not live with the feeling that you must get
over the ground as quickly as possible to reach a certain
point. Just live every moment, every hour, every day,
tranquilly in the protective love of God, taking the
hours as they come and doing one thing at a time, QUIETLY."
The Quiet Mind
DO YOU HAVE TROUBLE MEDITATING? There is a certain mythology
that seems to have attached itself to the practice of
meditation. There are also a few myths that keep people
from enjoying this ancient and life-enhancing daily
ritual. Watkins will debunk the 5 most common myths
and show you how you can benefit from very simple meditation
in just 10 minutes a day.
1) This is an excellent report, especially the article
on despair. You have hit the jackpot with this one.
We appreciate all of the wonderful work that you do.
2) A beautiful
edition of the Report. I was mesmerized by Hans Rosling's
graphic depiction of how good things really are....compared
to what we see and hear on the news. Compared to where
we have come from, the world is really in a BETTER place
today than we are led to believe. It is hard to remember
that when we are faced with the daily barrage of horror
stories happening globally. And the addition to the
report, supplied by Karl, was very interesting listening.
3) I Love what you are doing.
I feed on it. There is so much good material on the
weekly update. Let's get the word out there! And your
book is great reading. Terry.
HIGHLY INSPIRATIONAL MUSIC:
'WHEN YOU BELIEVE' This stirring
song from the animated film ‘The Prince of Egypt’
is presented by the BYU Women's Chorus.
When You Believe
Mariah Carey, Whitney Houston
Many nights we prayed
With no proof anyone could hear
In our hearts a hope for a song
We barely understood
Now we are not afraid
Although we know there's much to fear
We were moving mountains
Long before we knew we could, whoa, yes
There can be miracles
When you believe
Though hope is frail
It's hard to kill
Who knows what miracles
You can achieve
When you believe somehow you will
You will when you believe
In this time of fear
When prayer so often proves in vain
Hope seems like the summer bird
Too swiftly flown away
Yet now I'm standing here
My heart's so full, I can't explain
Seeking faith and speakin' words
I never thought I'd say
There can be miracles
When you believe (When you believe)
Though hope is frail
It's hard to kill (Mmm)
Who knows what miracles
