COMMENTARY: SCIENCE CAN BE RE-WRITTEN AS EVIDENCE EMERGES It has long been claimed that spiritual masters who practice yoga (or Buddhist meditation or Qigong and other martial arts) develop psychic powers that Western science says do not exist. In Supernormal Dr. Dean Radin examined the claims made in Patanjali's Yoga Sutras, a 2,000-year-old manuscript on meditation practices that are believed to release extraordinary powers. He compared these to modern experiments on the paranormal.
Prahlad Jani (1929―2020) was investigated twice by a team of doctors to confirm his claims that he could survive without eating or drinking. During the first study in 2003, the yogi stayed for 10 days in the Indian Sterling Hospital under the strict watch of dozens of medical experts and permanent CC-TV-control. He had no access to food or water, the toilet was sealed and the clothes and sheets were scrutinised for traces of urine. At the end of that time he was in perfect health.
In 2010 he was again scrutinized for 15 days by 36 medical experts from the Indian military in Sterling Hospital. During the test he was monitored at all times and did not eat, drink or urinate. Once again, he remained perfectly well. Dr. Sudhir Shah, the initiator of the study and Neurologist at the Sterling Hospital was open-minded and honest.
He wrote "We are all scientifically educated and research-orientated doctors. We racked our brains and it was the greatest surprise of our hitherto existing life... As if a bomb had hit us! The complete history of science has to be written anew. And our entire knowledge has been shaken to the core”.
SONIA RINALDI ― AN OVERVIEW OF HER FABULOUS WORK When people ask us for recent concrete proof of the afterlife we usually refer them to the work of Sonia Rinaldi. They can see and hear for themselves the wonderfully clear voices and images of people's loved ones in the afterlife that she has received with the help of a group of leading scientists working in other dimensions.
This coming Sunday 16th May she will give us an overview of the different aspects of her work from the beginning with EVP tapes on cassettes up to the present where she is getting holographic images.
Join us on Zoom at 5 p.m. Sunday Eastern time for a one- hour talk followed by questions. The room opens 30 minutes before. Places are limited to 100 so be on time.

NDE, ONENESS, LOVE, AND YOU MATTER
In 1997, Jeffrey V. Olsen experienced a horrific automobile accident that took the lives of both his wife and younger son and left him with horrific injuries. His 2018 book, "Knowing: Memoirs of a Journey Beyond the Veil and Choosing Joy After a Tragic Loss" outlines the lessons learned from his near-death experience (NDE). His surviving older son, Spencer Olsen, also offers some uplifting thoughts.
PSYCHIC HISTORY: Prof. WILLIAM JAMES (1842―1910) ONE OF THE GIANTS OF THE PARANORMAL William James was a physician, philosopher and Professor of Psychology at Harvard University. The son of a Swedenborgian theologian, he was the author of The Varieties of Religious Experience. He was also a founding member of the American Society for Psychical Research (ASPR) and president of the (British) SPR. He was responsible for the introduction of the greatest American medium, Mrs. Piper, to the SPR and had contact with her mediumship for many years. The medium Jane Roberts (of Seth fame) claimed to have channeled an account of his experiences after he left the body. "The Afterdeath Journal of an American Philosopher: The World View of William James" (1978) is deeply moving. Read excerpts.
THE CASE OF HAMLIN GARLAND
Hamlin Garland was a Pultizer Prize-winning writer. He was also enthusiastic about conducting psychical research with mediums across America, gaining a breadth of experience virtually unmatched by others. And yet he remained a skeptic despite the evidence, as you will find when you watch this very strange documentary.

OUT OF BODY EXPERIENCES Question: I am interested in out-of-body experiences - is there someone who has done a huge amount of research into OBE's? Vince W.
Victor: If you're interested in a "how-to" book you can't go past William Buhlman's books. If you want descriptions of what people find in the out-of-body state Jurgen Ziewe's work is excellent. On the other hand, if you're looking for a research-based overview, the best and most recent is Consciousness Beyond the Body: Evidence and Reflections.
As a modern compilation on the topic, the book aims to meld contemporary scientific evidence with the latest and most compelling practical applications of OBEs. Contributors: Nelson Abreu, Luis Minero, Ed Kellogg, Ryan Hurd, Robert Peterson, Preston Dennett, Graham Nicholls, Jurgen Ziewe, Clare Johnson, Robert Waggoner, Alexander De Foe, Natasha Tassell-Matamua, and Anthony Peake. Download the book for free.

He describes visiting his wife's uncle in the afterlife in full waking consciousness, the incredible beauty and opportunities in the astral world, and seeing living people visiting the spirit world while they sleep. A fascinating talk full of unique insights. Check out Jurgen's Astral Overview Project and his books.

INDUCED AFTER-DEATH COMMUNICATION
For 20 years, Dr. Allan Botkin had treated patients at a Veteran’s Administration Hospital in Chicago. He utilized EMDR (eye-movement desensitization and reprocessing) a widely used and proven method of treating PTSD. In 1995 he discovered that it also could facilitate direct communication with the deceased. For his remaining 8 years at the Vet Hospital, Botkin continued using IADC therapy, in secret. Dr. Botkin moved into private practice and successfully treated over 3,000 patients, many of whom reported that their intense grieving subsided in one or two sessions and the fear of death no longer existed. Most clients felt they were in the presence of the person who had died and could talk directly to them. Some people saw the person, heard their voice, felt their touch or could smell them.

THE JOYS OF THE SPIRIT WORLD
"There is nothing in your world of matter with which you can compare the life of the spirit, freed from the trammels of the flesh, escaped from the prison of the body of matter, with liberty to go where you will, to see your thoughts take shape, to follow the desires of your heart, to be freed from the troubles of money. No, you have not tasted the joys of the world of spirit.
You who are encased in matter do not yet comprehend beauty as it can be, You have not seen our light, colour, scenery, trees, birds, rivers, streams, mountains, flowers - and yet your world fears death". Silver Birch Anthology p.69.
1) "Thank you! So very interesting about General Patton! And Eva Cassidy is one of my all-time favorite singers. Her voice is heavenly". Cynthia
2) "I need to say thank you for the GOSH group last night (UK time). A special thanks to Kim Parker and our gathering with some new faces. A brilliant discussion on many things that flowed between us and most added their own experiences that linked us together. Brilliant!" Bill.
3) Dear Victor, Thank you SO very much for all you and your dear wife, and so many others, including so many eminent scientists, are doing in the research and pursuit of evidence, which seems to prove that we all just “move on”, after our soul/spirit/consciousness leaves our physical bodies. I am SO sad that so many people, all across the world, are so devastated when they ‘lose' a loved one. If ONLY people would realise that we all just “move on”! My husband died at the age of 48, and I was given so many “signs” that he was “OK” and I do SO, SO wish that all this evidence of survival after death, could be accepted. What a difference it would make to everyone in the world!!
INSPIRATIONAL MUSIC Annie Lennox - Into The West. Many people who listen to the song speak of being moved to tears. Others say it gives them chills. Best known as the song played while the credits rolled at the end of the Lord of the Rings trilogy, the song has become a favourite to celebrate the end of a long and exhausting journey and the beginning of a transition. Peter Jackson dedicated the song to Cameron Duncan of New Zealand, a young filmmaker he and his wife mentored. It was first played at Cameron's funeral.
Your sweet and weary head
The night is falling
You have come to journey's end
And dream of the ones who came before
They are calling
From across the distant shore
Why do you weep?
What are these tears upon your face?
Soon you will see
All of your fears will pass away
Safe in my arms
You're only sleeping
What can you see
On the horizon?
Why do the white gulls call?
Across the sea
A pale moon rises
The ships have come to carry you home
And all will turn
To silver glass
A light on the water
All Souls pass
Into the world of night
Through shadows falling
Out of memory and time
We have come now to the end
White shores are calling
You and I will meet again
And you'll be here in my arms
And all will turn
To silver glass
A light on the water
Grey ships pass
Into the West
