PERSONAL EXPERIENCE CREATES CERTAINTY The need to openly attack
those who hold a different belief from your own seems
to be an indication of spiritual immaturity and uncertainty.
From my experience, it is a need shared by both closed-minded
skeptics and religious fundamentalists.
Psychologists talk about the anxiety that
is raised in some people through 'cognitive dissonance'.
This means that when they hear something that contradicts
what they have been taught, their hearts beat faster,
their blood pressure increases, and they feel afraid that
the beliefs they have relied upon are being challenged.
All this leads to them to attack the source of the inconsistent
information - sometimes using strong, dirty language,
ridicule, or even physical attack.
When it comes to the afterlife, the people
who are most confident of their position are those who
have had a personal experience of direct afterlife contact.
For some, it is a near-death or out-of-body experience.
For others it is an evidential reading with a medium or
experience sitting in a physical mediumship circle. It
may be a dream visit with a loved one or an after-death
contact or even the first time they get a response to
a question through EVP. And some have seen spirit since
they were children.
We constantly hear these people say "I don't care
what anyone says, I know what I happened to me, I know
what I saw and what I heard".
INTERVIEW WITH DR. ELISABETH KUBLER-ROSS
It was personal experience that took Dr.
Kubler-Ross into a place of certainty about the afterlife.
"We are not here to convince other people. I share
what I know and how I verified it to my satisfaction,
and those who can hear will hear, and those who do not
hear they will just be pleasantly surprised when they
make their own transition."
FRENCH ANESTHESIOLOGIST TALKS ABOUT
NEAR-DEATH EXPERIENCES "Although
I was a scientist and a highly technical medical specialist,
I finally admitted that death is only an obligatory passage
to an unknown destination. Unfortunately, the truth about
the afterlife is not obvious to everyone". Dr. Jean

books about the afterlife, one of which is available

FREDERICK SCULTHORPE'S 'EXCURSIONS
TO THE SPIRIT WORLDS' This
book contains wonderfully clear reporting of the author's
out-of-body journeys. Sculthorpe details many reunions
with his wife and visits to the ‘brighter’
worlds of beauty, friendship, and simple openness. As
well, he describes his experiences in the dull near-Earth
free pdf copy. There is also a sequel called More
about the Spirit World which you may be able to track
SUICIDE - A SPIRITUAL UNDERSTANDING
THAT IS NOT RELIGIOUS
There is much superstition, ignorance, and misinformation
about the afterlife, especially about what happens to
people who take their own lives. In this video, Dr. Craig
Hogan, President of the
Afterlife Research and Education Institute, describes
what happens to people who commit suicide when they reach
the other side.
FEAR OF DEATH IS A HUGE PROBLEM
Hugh Benson, a former Catholic priest communicating by
direct voice from the afterlife said: "Fear, my good
friends, is what dominates the lives of most people who
spare a minute to think upon their possible or probable
state of existence in the spirit world, and that fear
is carried with them when they come to dwell here for
all time. Why should people have this fear? Whence is
it derived? The answer is a plain one: it is years and
years of Orthodox teachings that alone are responsible.
The Churches for the most part exist in a condition of
spiritual darkness, not darkness of deliberate evil, but
the gloom of ignorance and they are content to remain
so, and keep their 'faithful' with them."

PARENTS REUNITED WITH THEIR MATERIALISED SONS - A STORY
TO GIVE HOPE Gwen and Alf
Byrne's son, Russell, died in 1963 at the age of 9. Gwen
began looking for (and found) evidence of survival through
mental mediums. Then in August 1982, she received a phone
call that Russell had materialized at a physical mediumship
circle through the mediumship of English medium Rita Goold.
He had given the name and address of his parents and asked
that they be contacted. After this, she attended sessions
with Rita and her circle on a weekly basis and was reunited
with Russell on more than 100 occasions. He was
able to shine a torch on different parts of his body to
show he was fully materialized. Read
After these experiences, Gwen started a support group
for bereaved parents. She also wrote a book called Russell.
A few copies are available
second hand. In this extract from the book, Russell
describes his experiences of leaving his physical body
and settling into the Summerland. Read

EVER GET THREATENED? Victor: We have several cases on record
where this happened, and it is one reason why mediums
who help the police usually don't publicise it.
Zealand Sensing Murder psychic medium Sue Nicholson revealed
she received threats because of her work on the crime-solving
series. She told a reporter that she received a phone
call at 1 a.m. from a male telling her to keep her mouth
shut as she knew too much about one of the cases she had
investigated. Another side effect of her involvement in
the series was her suffering a physical ailment, which,
she claims, began when she re-experienced the death of
a young girl. Read

AUSTRALIAN ABORIGINAL HEALERS'
VIEW OF SICKNESS: LOSS OF PEOPLE AND LOSS OF COUNTRY
For thousands of years, Ngangkari healers
have looked after the physical and emotional well-being
of their people and communities. Instead of focusing on
an injured foot or physical ailment, the healers tend
to the spirit, which they believe is causing the pain.
Healer and Pitjantjatjara woman, Debbie Watson, says the
spirit is deeply connected with emotional, mental and
physical well-being. “Some people get really sick,
like losing family or losing country. That’s why
people get sick. Without spirit, only spirit can help.
Because you know the spirit – it’s connected
to here, (gestures to body) and we can look after our
spirit,” Ms Watson said. Read

GUIDANCE FROM SILVER BIRCH
have a task to perform. You will imbibe this knowledge
and you will use it to help others. You will develop the
gifts of the spirit yourself and when you have done so
you will become a little lighthouse that sheds the beams
of truth to weary souls still in the darkness. When you
do that you will fulfil the purpose of your own existence.
We can never promise that your life will be free from
problems, perplexity, or even pain. We can promise
that within yourself you will find the means to overcome
all handicaps and disabilities. As you strive to express
the highest, the deepest, the greatest within yourself,
so will you attract to your aid those beings from our
world who love you, who desire to help you, and through
you help others." Guidance from Silver Birch
1) "I love Silver Birch wisdom. He
spoke to me many years ago". Eileen
2 ) "You and Wendy light up my life.
Thank you so much for all you do. Sending loving blessings
to both of you.xx." Jean
3) "I found this, the Oct 25 issue, one of the more
outstanding issues (for me)! As a poet myself, I enjoyed
the inclusion of poetry. Even though the speaker of the
long dialogue with his wife was rather lethargic, I found
it VERY interesting. Oh, and I found that last book (you
know of it) by Jon/White Crow was excellent! I could really
relate EXPERIENTIALLY! The two of you must be in a state
of overwhelm considering all that you do, and your extensive
communication. It is and has been a wonderful work! I
thank you for it." Richard Lee Van Der Voort
