COMMENTARY: DISINFORMATION AND DISCERNMENT Many of us who have had the privilege of sitting repeatedly with a genuine medium, or have had an NDE or OBE or direct contact with loved ones who have crossed over, know that we have received amazing evidence that life is eternal.
But as Michael Tymn points out, many in the academic community remain determined to ignore the evidence, no matter how impressive it is. "Some esteemed men and women of science observed a particular medium on hundreds of occasions under conditions completely ruling out deception of any kind. And yet, other scientists concluded that fraud was the only explanation, primarily because everything they observed defied known natural law. Their careers would have been endangered had they subscribed to an unnatural or 'unscientific' explanation."
"Journalists and historians, wanting to appear intelligent and scientific, not as gullible fools buying into ridiculous 'religious' superstition and folly, usually aligned themselves with the debunkers, completely ignoring the controlled studies by some researchers and recording only the verdicts of the debunkers."
So today we say "well done" to all of those who have been able to withstand the hostility and disinformation of academia, fundamentalist religion, the mainstream media, and well-meaning relatives and rely on their own experience and discernment.
RUPERT SHELDRAKE ON AFTERLIFE INVESTIGATION "Science is not committed to a particular theory; it does not have to adopt the materialist ideology as its basis."
DAN DRASIN CAPTURES PERFECTLY THE TECHNIQUES USED BY CLOSED-MINDED SKEPTICS "So you've had a close encounter with a UFO or its occupants. Or maybe you've experienced an "impossible" healing, a perfectly cogent conversation with your dead uncle, or an irrefutable demonstration of "free energy," and you've begun to suspect that the official view of reality isn't the whole picture. Mention any of these things to most working scientists and be prepared for anything from patronizing cynicism to merciless ridicule". So begins Dan Drasin's brilliantly insightful article, Zen and the Art of Debunkery OR How to Debunk Just About Anything.
INDEPENDENT DIRECT VOICE MEDIUMSHIP
One of the most convincing areas of afterlife evidence is independent direct voice mediumship. Yet it is something that most people have never heard of. When the conditions are right, the spirit operators may be able to build an ectoplasmic voicebox, either in mid-air or on the side of the neck of the physical medium. People can then have extended conversations with their loved one, who speaks in his/her own voice, sometimes at a great distance from the medium. The voices can be heard by everyone present and can be recorded. Sometimes the medium can be conscious and join in the conversation. Listen to this conversation between Douglas Conacher, a London Publisher who passed in 1958, and his wife Eira through the direct voice mediumship of Leslie Flint. There are more than 40 recorded, separate, intimate conversations between the husband and wife that became the basis of two books. In this recording, he shares what he has learned about reincarnation.
DR. WALTER SEMKIW M.D. ON THE PRINCIPLES OF REINCARNATION In1996, California medical doctor Walter Semkiw, MD embarked on researching a possible past life of his own. He began working closely with medium Kevin Ryerson, a trance channel in the tradition of Edgar Cayce, who channels a spirit guide named Ahtun Re. From his investigations, Dr. Semkiw postulated 10 Principles of Reincarnation, including similar facial features (see picture of Putin compared with Nero) talents, and passions from one lifetime to another. In 2001, Dr. Semkiw spent a day with pioneer researcher, Ian Stevenson, MD at the University of Virginia and shared his work in researching his own past life, as well as other similar cases. His books and his website are fascinating.
DO WE PLAN OUR OWN LIVES BEFORE WE INCARNATE? Robert Schwartz says we do. He writes:
"Working closely with several mediums and channels, I have now explored the pre-birth plans of many, many people. I have learned that the events in their lives are neither random nor arbitrary, but rather part of a wisely conceived and intricate plan—a plan they themselves bravely designed". He has written two ground-breaking books examining the pre-birth plans of courageous souls: Your Soul's Plan and Your Soul’s Gift are classics in the field. He has now written a third book Your Soul’s Love in which he explores the pre-birth planning of challenges related to romantic relationships or their absence: infidelity; impotence; raising children alone after the death of one’s partner; being single; and celibate relationships.

ARE YOU CURIOUS ABOUT YOUR SOUL'S PLAN?
Rob Schwartz and his wife, Liesel Fricke, a prolific channeler of Light Being energies and wisdom, have created an online 7-week live video training course to help you connect with your own life plan. Using soul regression, hypnosis-induced inner journeys, and meditations you can explore your pre-birth plan, examine the Divine Virtues you’re cultivating in this lifetime, and discover self-empowering ways to guide the trajectory of your life. The course starts Thursday May 6th. Read more.
KEN ROSS SPEAKS ABOUT HIS MOTHER'S LEGACY Ken Ross, son of Dr. Elisabeth Kübler-Ross, is the founder of the EKR Foundation (2006) and its President (2006-2013 & 2018-Present). Ken was the principal care provider for his mother in the last 9 years of her life until her passing in 2004. While growing up, he traveled with her extensively on her numerous foreign trips, witnessing her lectures and workshops. Ken has lectured on his mother’s legacy for hospices and various conferences in South America, Asia, and Europe. A professional photographer by trade, he has photographed in 101 countries.
'ELECTRONIC CONTACT WITH THE DEAD: WHAT DO THE VOICES TELL US?' ITC is the phenomenon whereby allegedly deceased communicators relay messages and images to the living via radio equipment, televisions, computers, answerphones and other recording devices. In this second book by Dr. Anabela Cardoso, a career diplomat, leading ITC researcher and the editor of the ITC Journal, she looks at what we have learned about the afterlife from ITC. Subjects discussed include time, space, the nature of life, the group soul, reincarnation, God, life, and much more. One communicator informs us “The object of an earthly life is not just the goodness. The object is to be conscious”. Read more.
DIANE ARCANGEL TALKS ABOUT HER RESEARCH ON AFTER DEATH COMMUNICATION The book, "Afterlife Encounters" is the culmination of author Diane Arcangel's five-year, international survival study. Arcangel presents all-new, first-hand accounts from individuals who've experienced visitations from the dead. "Afterlife Encounters" offers a systematic categorization of such encounters.
MEDIUM DEBRA MARTIN SOLVES A MURDER
Marita Wilson in the U.S.A. had been told that her aunt Alicia Becerra in Peru had died of stomach cancer. But medium Debra Martin described in detail how the aunt was killed for her property. Further, the gifted psychic medium gave the NAME of the murderer – ‘Marcos’. The niece hired lawyers in Peru to investigate. Authorities dug up the body and found that the aunt had been strangled. Police traced the murderer, convicted him and sent him to jail for 20 years. You can read this astonishing story in Debra's book; Soul to Soul…True stories of evidential communication from loved ones in Heaven.
Debra’s murder story went International when it made the front cover of the Psychic News magazine that is published out of the UK.

HELP FROM SPIRIT IS ALWAYS AVAILABLE
"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, you will attract to your aid those beings from our world who love you, who desire to help you, and through you help others." Mons. Hugh Benson, Life in the World Unseen '93ED.
A COMPASSIONATE WORLD STARTS WITH YOU Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. Fortunately things are changing and more and more people are realizing that the everyday choices we make—such as what we eat for lunch, the kind of shampoo we buy, and the entertainment we take our children to see—are important in ending abuse of these beautiful gentle creatures.

1) Victor, I continue to read with great appreciation the Friday Afterlife Report published weekly by you and your wife. It has brought me and others great comfort and confirmation. My path to the afterlife, including our pre-existence from past lives and rebirth into future lives, came to me over study throughout my life, by way of ancient Western philosophy (i.e. Plato in the Meno and the Phaedo, which are still unsurpassed by anything I have ever read) and the discoveries of modern medicine (e.g. the division of perceptual studies in the department of psychiatry of the school of medicine at the University of Virginia). But there are many other avenues which you have brought to light. I write to thank you and Wendy for your good work, which will certainly bring you great rewards when you pass over. -- John Remington Graham, a member of the Bar of the United States Supreme Court (#83902).
2) Extract from a review of our book: "This book is compelling, persuasive, believable. I am a former and reformed elder of a Church of Christ, an eighty-nine-year- old veteran of the 1945 Pacific War. I have had at least four recognizable contacts with my wife of sixty-seven years who 'died' Sept. 25, 2015. I am not inexperienced or uneducated." (See Amazon for more reviews.)
HIGHLY INSPIRATIONAL MUSIC
We never get tired of listing to the exquisite harmonies of Suzan Erens, Carmen Monarcha and Carla Maffioletti performing the magnificent and inspired song "The Rose" during the golden days when Suzan was part of Andre Rieu's programs (1999-2008). It is one of the most beautiful songs ever written and has a fascinating story behind it.
