COMMENTARY: A WORLD TRANSFORMED?
Would it make any difference if all people in the world understood the real nature of the afterlife? Our hope is that
it would/will make a big difference! We only need to look at the effects of Near-death experiences on those who have them.
1) First and foremost it would reduce the hopeless and helpless grief that comes from the false belief that we will never see our loved ones again after they die.
2) It would take away the needless fear of death, judgement, and hellfire.
3) It would take away the hostility between different religions and help people to realise that there are many paths to spiritual growth.
4) Once we realise that qualities like unselfishness, compassion, gentleness, and kindness are those that prepare people best for the afterlife, our society will come to value and nurture these qualities and transform the world.
5) It would automatically reduce the work of the many millions of wonderful souls in the afterlife who have to counsel the uninformed on crossing over.

THE EDGAR MITCHELL VIRTUAL REALITY OVERVIEW EFFECT We should not underestimate the effect of space travel on our collective consciousness. The Blue Marble shot is an image of Earth taken on December 7, 1972, from a distance of about 29,000 kilometers (18,000 miles) from the planet's surface. It was taken by the crew of the Apollo 17 spacecraft on its way to the moon and is one of the most reproduced images in history.
Edgar Mitchell and many other astronauts experienced what has been called 'the overview effect' - a sense of awe, wonder, and interconnection. Many say it has inspired them to live a life of service to others and to our world. Now the team at the Institute of Noetic Sciences (the organization founded by Edgar Mitchell) is working to create a 5-7 minute virtual reality program to give people that same experience. Read more.

HEALING FROM THE INSIDE OUT AND THE OUTSIDE IN At age 16, Sheri Perl was diagnosed with Crohn's Disease. After two years of medical treatment, she was fighting for her life on the operating table. While recovering from surgery, a second illness contracted through blood transfusions was declared fatal. At this time Sheri contacted British spiritual healer, Harry Edwards, "purely out of desperation," and to her amazement was the recipient of healing so great, that it stopped her illness in its tracks and returned her liver functions to normal. As a result of this experience, Sheri opened the doors to spiritual exploration - a process in which she has been engaged for fifty years.
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN A CATHOLIC PRIEST FINDS HIMSELF PSYCHICALLY GIFTED?
"The fact that I was a priest (with psychic gifts) did not preclude me from visitations of what the Church preferred to look upon as devils, although I never once, I must confess, saw anything remotely resembling what I could consider as such.
I did not grasp the fact that I was what is called, on the Earth-plane, a sensitive, a psychic - one gifted with the power of 'seeing', though in limited degree. This incursion of a psychic faculty into my priestly life I found to be considerably disturbing since it conflicted with my orthodoxy. I sought advice in the matter from my colleagues, but they knew less than I knew, and they could only think of praying for me that these 'devils' might be removed from me."

WHY LISTEN TO SKEPTICS' NEGATIVITY? Every discovery in science goes through a period of initial ridicule. Galvani, the discoverer of electricity (pictured left) experienced it from two sides:
"I am attacked by two very opposite sects - the scientists and the know-nothings. Both laugh at me, calling me 'the frogs' dancing master.' Yet I know I have discovered one of the greatest forces in nature."

CHERYL PAGE TALKS ABOUT HER AFTER-DEATH CONTACTS Cheryl Page is a newcomer to evidence for the afterlife. After her partner was killed in an accident in 2017, she began receiving signs of his continued presence. Following advice from medium Suzanne Giesemann, she began daily periods of 'listening to spirit' and recording what came through. Soon she was getting clear evidential spirit communication. She is keen to help those who are new to the field to learn that such communication is possible.

SILVER BIRCH ON THE IMPORTANCE OF BUILDING A LIFE BASED ON SPIRITUAL TRUTH In 1957, Michael Flagg, the founder of The Universal Spiritual Brother&Sisterhood (USB) on earth, met and was addressed by the highly spiritual guide Silver Birch, who encouraged him to disseminate spiritual truths.
Silver Birch highlighted humanity’s dangers of self-destruction and its need for spiritual leadership, stressing how “...All our efforts are directed, wherever channels can be found, towards the single purpose of ensuring that the spiritual truths upon which the whole of
life are founded should be the basis by which man everywhere builds his life.”
This message (and other wonderful quotes from Silver Birch) was reported in Two Worlds, an English newspaper, in February 1958, in an article titled
“Spirit Teachings Bear Divine Hallmark—Silver Birch, which increased Michael’s determination to spread widely the teachings great spirit beings gave him; they are now compiled into the book Spiritual Light.
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN WE DIE?
Spirit Teacher White Eagle describes how some souls are met on the other side:
"Many souls who come over to the Spirit World from the Earth arrive in such a state of confusion that they do not know where they are at first. Very soon they are guided by both visible and (to them) invisible helpers to a quiet place - sometimes to a grassy bank where flowers are sweetly scenting the air, and where a gentle river is flowing by. There they feel around them a sense of happiness, stillness, joy and serenity. They absorb the spiritual atmosphere of quietude and peace. When they are thus prepared their eyes are opened and they see their guide and teacher of the spirit who is waiting.
They hear no words of judgment or of condemnation, but only receive encouragement, sympathy and understanding. They absorb love both from this companion and from their surroundings. They learn very rapidly then, absorbing the harmony and perfection of their environment. This is the beginning of their wide path of learning in a new life."
MOST IMPORTANT LESSONS FROM I.N.I.T.
In the 1990s The International Network for Instrumental
Transcommunication experienced wonderful developments
in spirit communication. But because of a lack of harmony
between the researchers, many of the best communications
Mark Macy has summarised some of the lessons that all
afterlife researchers need to learn about maintaining
the 'contact field': "When the thoughts and attitudes of all those entities
on both sides of the veil are in harmony, our spirit friends
told us the contact field was clear. They could then see
into our world and work with our equipment.
When doubts, fears, envy, resentment, and other troubled
feelings created dissonance, the contact field became
cloudy, and our spirit friends told us they could not
see easily into our world or work with our equipment."

lessons from INIT.
