COMMENTARY: A THIRD ALTERNATIVE
Sadly, a lot of people equate the afterlife with religion and, when they reject the absurdities of the simplistic version of religion that they have been taught, they close their minds to the afterlife.
In rejecting the threat of eternal damnation, they also cut themselves off from an exploration of the greater reality. They shut the door firmly to anything spiritual or paranormal and retreat into skepticism, claiming (incorrectly) that science says there cannot be an afterlife.
For many years we have shown from the evidence that the afterlife is a fact of physics as demonstrable as gravity. It has nothing to do with religion and it is perfectly possible to be an agnostic or an atheist and still accept the evidence for the afterlife. There is a large and growing group of people who accept the afterlife and describe themselves as "spiritual but not religious."
We have also shown that some of the greatest scientists in the history of the world who took the time to investigate the evidence for the afterlife became convinced of its existence. These days their discoveries are being supported by the advances in quantum physics which shows that at the base of all matter there is only consciousness - which some people describe as 'The Force' or God.
SPIRITUAL SCIENCE Steve Taylor Ph.D. is the author of 13 books on psychology and spirituality and is a senior lecturer in Psychology at Leeds Beckett University. He is the current chair of the Transpersonal Psychology Section of the British Psychological Society. His books include his new book The Clear Light, Waking From Sleep, The Fall, Out of the Darkness, Back to Sanity, The Calm Center, The Leap, and Spiritual Science, the subject of this talk.
DR. JULIE BEISCHEL ON MEDIUMSHIP AND GRIEF Julie Beischel and her husband Mark Boccuzzi have presented some pilot data about the potential therapeutic benefits of a mediumship reading. They propose that a mediumship reading can be a great treatment option for grief. She says:
"There’s a lot of evidence that spontaneous or even induced after-death communication has a great effect on personal grief. A recent meta-analysis performed at the University of Memphis on 64 studies demonstrated this. Traditional grief counseling wasn’t benefiting the patients any better than the passage of time and the resources of support a person already had. An effective grief therapy is not currently out there. People who have had a mediumship meeting report some miraculous, instantaneous changes." Listen as Julie elaborates on Skeptico.
RECENT ADVANCES IN INSTRUMENTAL TRANSCOMMUNICATON RESEARCH
Sonia Rinaldi explains why the team of spirit scientists working with her is choosing to communicate with light rather than with sound as a way of bypassing what Konstantin Raudive described in a phone call to Sonia in 1994 as a build-up of excessive vibrations in the fabric of the Earth. She explains how the scientists can convert light into sound and shares examples of how the spirit team 'apport' images into a spherical container she fills with steam. They are also able to transfigure images over photographs held up in front of a camera on Zoom.

EARTH-LIFE AS A SCHOOL FOR YOUNG SOULS "Imagine yourself in an ideal world where everyone is free to explore and develop their creative pursuits and experience their unlimited potential. Does this sound like heaven? Just think what an immature or undisciplined being could and would do in this ideal thought-responsive world. Picture the chaos and destruction that a single primitive mind could create.
...Now for a moment imagine what kind of educational environment would be the perfect training ground for this undisciplined mind...Welcome to the dense training ground of matter, where focused thoughts are required in order to create and prosper. Welcome to the ideal environment where the young and undisciplined mind can learn by trial and error without contaminating the pure realm of spirit. Welcome to your life."
William Buhlman, The Secret of the Soul.
DR. YVONNE KASON: NDEs - THE ESSENTIALS Dr. Yvonne Kason M.D. has had five near-death experiences and has been researching spiritually transformative experiences for 40 years. In this 2019 presentation, she covers the essential information about NDEs prepared by the IANDS committee to be shared around the world.
WHAT ARE THE AFTERLIFE DIMENSIONS LIKE? Directly from the afterlife, Mons. Hugh Benson explains, " ... many souls of the earth world are almost shocked to be told that the spirit world is a solid world, a substantial world, with real, live people in it. They think that that is far too material, far too like the earth world; hardly, in fact, one step removed from it with its spirit landscape and sunshine, its houses and building, its rivers and lakes, inhabited by sentient beings!" (Life in the World Unseen Ed.97, )
DR. MICHAEL NEWTON ON LIFE BETWEEN LIVES Dr. Michael Newton (1931-2016) discovered that some patients under deep hypnosis were able to access memories of their time in the spirit world. However, he waited until he had collected 7,000 case studies over 25 years before sharing the information with the world. His first book,Journey of Souls (1994), presented ten years of his research and insights to help people understand the purpose behind their life choices. His follow-up book Destiny of Souls (2000) looked at life in the world of spirit, as revealed in 70 new cases.

FOUR-YEAR-OLD COMMUNICATES WITH HER DECEASED FATHER In the recent past this mother may have dismissed her child's account of talking with her deceased father as imagination. But these days many more people accept that it is possible for us to communicate with those who have crossed over – especially where there is a strong heart-to-heart connection. Here is a video explaining how a four-year-old child regularly talked to her father and his friends who were killed in the 9/11 tragedy.

SPIRITS AT PLAY - THE WEBZINE OF RATIONAL SPIRITISM Miles Edward Allen is well known to the readers of the Friday Afterlife Report as the author of several wonderful books on the afterlife reincarnation. He and his partner Donna have a monthly free e-zine full of interesting articles. Read April edition.
SIMPLE ACTS OF KINDNESS During near-death experience life reviews people are always surprised that it is often the tiny things they do for others that have been the most significant in their lives.
A FINAL WORD FROM SILVER BIRCH
“What we have to say is very simple. It begins first with a demonstration. It is that we declare that all can be proven by every individual who sets out with an honest purpose, freed from biases, with a desire to know the truth. Those who love you will prove their presence, despite the incident of death, if you give them the opportunity and provide them with the right channels.” (The Seed of Truth, p.126, 1989 Ed.).
FEEDBACK: (Three only).
1) "Again, thanks so much for your good work in putting out the afterlife report each week. Almost 41 years ago in the summer of 1980, I read Dr. Raymond Moody’s seminal work, Life after Life. I was immediately enthralled and my curiosity was deepened. Since then I’ve been a student of sorts considering the subject matter and related issues. As such, I have found your weekly report to be a synergistic gold and diamond mine with value beyond belief. I understand that I am being a bit redundant here but I can’t thank you enough for your work". Steve
2) "Every Thursday I look forward to seeing these come thru - thank you so much for the fabulous work you do".
"David Lorimer - Very eloquent and cogent exposition"! Ron
HIGHLY INSPIRED MUSIC: CHOIR
Something completely different. An interesting tribute by Guy Sebastian, a popular Australian musician and songwriter, to a close friend and musical collaborator who died in 2019 (see backstory). He created a joyous celebratory song that is spreading the message of the afterlife to young people. It reminds us to stop postponing catchups with friends and make time to spend with them before their time runs out.
