January 2008 Apologies
if I have not replied to your email. Wendy and I have
been taking some family time in Los Angeles and Portland.
HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL!
NEW YEAR RESOLUTION? This is a good
time of the year to plan what we want to achieve this
year. Remember, the clock keeps on ticking - and time
waits for nobody! In the grand scheme of things our
lives are just a 'fraction of an eye-blink.' Over and
over the message comes from the other side "If
only I had known... I could have done so much more..."
Nothing comes by chance - so careful intelligent planning
for the next 12 months is what we all must do. I'm borrowing
from Oprah's resolutions for this year. In addition
to the usual deadlines we have and the demands made
on us, I find that by also focusing on three positive
things we all should see the year out successfully.
First:HEALTH. This is very important. We
all know that we must exercise and watch what we eat
because the consequence of being negligent in relation
to our bodies could be quite devastating. As well continuing
research on the mind-body connection shows us that how
we think about our health is equally important. Now
is a good time to actually make a commitment to doing
something about it, preferably with someone else.
SPIRITUALITY: Most of us know that is critically
important to read daily about afterlife matters
as well as to set aside some time for quiet meditation.
It is so easy to get caught up in the material world
with its pressures and fears. Oprah, in the latest edition
of her magazine, confesses that it was only when she
allowed herself to get too busy for daily meditation
and gratitude journalling that her heath began to fall
apart. Keeping ourselves connected to spirit reminds
us that nothing can hurt us. We can lose the fear of
death, lose the fear of the unknown.
FUN - what do you do for fun? We must be creative
to balance working long hours with some fun - listening
to wonderful melodious music, reading books and journals,
traveling, taking photographs, learning new things,
taking up a sport- just to mention a few ideas. Those
who come through to us from the afterlife often tell
us that they work at things they love so that work is
fun and they balance work by taking opportunities to
be with like-minded people and to do creative things
they never had the chance to do while alive on earth.
I haven't heard of anyone in the realms of the light
who remains a "work-aholic".
Those who take the opportunity to learn about the afterlife
on a daily basis, to practice thought control and to
raise their vibrations through creativity and selfless
service will find crossing over a joyful homecoming.
to all for the New Year!!!
OUR VISIT TO THE U.S.: from Hollywood,
Los Angeles we
went to Portland (picture, left) - not far from Seattle.
What we notice consistently over the number of times
we visited the U.S. is the friendliness of the American
people. We have found that wherever we went - especially
in Portland, the people are so very friendly. When someone
exudes positive energy, friendliness and the willingness
to help a stranger for no personal motive or incentive
- that to me is always so very impressive. I had my
very first white Christmas- gentle snow falling
as we were walking outside shops (see picture left).
I thought it was incredibly beautiful. Of course, within
a couple of days the snow completely melted and the
sun came out - without any trace of snow. It was a wonderful
experience for us as in our hometown during Christmas
time is sub-tropical - is usually around 28 to 30 Celsius
(78-80 Farenheit). Above, Victor on the last day of
OVERRULED! These below are
some of the most common objections raised by the skeptics
about the evidence for the afterlife I received in the
last 20 years. I will be including one objection every
week for the next twenty weeks. For any feedback on
this specific issue feel free to contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org
Objection. “The evidence for the
afterlife cannot be valid because there is no afterlife.”
That is an inadmissible objection because the objector
is making an assumption there is no afterlife without
producing any objective evidence that there is no afterlife.
No one on earth has ever produced evidence to show that
there is no afterlife, therefore the objection cannot
be accepted and technically the objection is inadmissible.
But there is a huge amount of expressly stated evidence
- much of it objective and repeatable - for the existence
of the afterlife. For example, I presented some twenty
two areas of afterlife evidence which have not been
rebutted by the materialist experts or by anyone in
the last eight years.
MEETING WITH DR WALLY JOHNSTON While
in Portland I had the great privilege of meeting with
Dr Wally Johnston, a retired professor of Education,
whose story is told in the fascinating and highly recommended
Who Don't Know They are Dead."
Wally also told me about another book he has co-written
called "Possible Fatal"about
the Near Death Experience and subsequent life changes
of Joanie Thurston who was in a automobile accident
on May 13, 1997; she fell asleep at the wheel, struck
a light pole, and died. During her NDE Joanie was directed
to "tell her story and make it common knowledge."
Making a profit was not mentioned. For that reason the
publisher has decided to make Possible Fatal available
without cost to those who are unable to pay for it.
GREAT JAMES VAN PRAAGH Top
American Medium, James Van Praagh, answers the following
questions:What do people want to know when they come
to you? Why do people want to communicate with the dead?
What can I learn from speaking to the dead? How rare
is the ability to communicate with the dead? How do
I know if a medium or psychic is legitimate? How do
fraudulent or unreliable psychics take advantage of
people? Do all dead people become ghosts? What force
or energy is created by a spirit? Why should a psychic
or medium charge for a spiritual communication? How
can a psychic or medium help people? What are the best
and worst things about speaking to the dead?
BRILLIANT SCIENTISTS CONTINUE AN EXPLANATION OF THE
NEW PHYSICS We
are indeed fortunate to have Dr Adrian Klein and Dr
Robert Neil Boyd writing a ground breaking series of
articles for us on some fundamentals of the new physics.
Dr Klein wrote to us this week that they have just completed
an important paper for a very high level academic conference
which they hope will yield a first major paradigmatic
shift in the approach of the ruling scientific establishment.
The importance of this work cannot be overemphasized
since as Dr Klein puts it " Without a theoretic
alignment, no amount of experimental and experiential
evidence will ever break stubborn patterns of denial
and misinterpretation that our field of exploration
has to ceaselessly confront."This
week another fascinating mind-expanding paper "What
is Life?" which argues that the evidence shows
that all matter has some degree of consciousness and
that life is not just a series of physical chemical
interactions but are controlled by "Informations
provided from outside the given system." THIS HAS
HUGE IMPLICATIONS FOR THE MIND-BRAIN DEBATE.
HAPPY FIRST BIRTHDAY TO THE WINDBRIDGE
Applied Research in Human Potential. For the afterlife to be accepted by mainstream
science we need a sound theorical basis (see above) and
contemporary scientific experimentation. Very few people
understand the backbreaking work it takes to write academic
papers about mediumship and to obtain funding for ongoing
research so this week we were delighted to receive an
email from the Windbridge Institute outlining the steady
work that their staff have been doing throughout the year.
Some highlights include: * publications featured
in the peer-reviewed journals the Journal of Scientific
Exploration and the Journal of Parapsychology. (Copies
* the results of our research presented at the annual
meeting of the Society for the Anthropology of Consciousness
at Yale University in March and the annual Alternative
Expressions of the Numinous Conference at the University
of Queensland in August.
* awarded research grants from the American Association
of Electronic Voice Phenomena (AA-EVP) and the Bial Foundation.
Director of Operations Mark Boccuzzi writes that "
part of this two-year grant will allow us to continue
the screening of mediums who began their multi-step certification
process at the University of Arizona. We will be contacting
those mediums shortly. We hope to continue the screening
of additional mediums in the future. For more information
about the intensive 8-step medium screening and training
procedure and other requirements as well as a list of
certified mediums, see our Certified
Research Mediums page."

the Windbridge Institute and to take advantage of the
benefits of the Windbridge Groupsite and receive the quarterly

LUIZ GASPERETTO - BRAZILIAN MEDIUM
Stanislav Grof's (pictured) book "When
the Impossible Happens"
there's a chapter about Luiz Antonio Gasparetto, a psychologist
from Brazil who is able to go into trance and paint in
the style of a wide range of dead famous painters (Monet,
Picasso, Rembrandt, da Vinci, Modigliani, Manet, van Gogh,
Gauguin, etc). He doesn't just paint exact replicas of
existing paintings but "new motifs rendered in easily
recognizable styles of individual artists".
Dr Grof describes how they actually turned all the lights
off except for one little red light over the paper (red
so that he couldn't distinguish color)...he would at times
paint with two hands two different paintings at the same
time and even did one upside down under the table with
his right foot. Loyd Auerbach who was present at one of
the demonstrations writes: "The climax of the demonstration
was when he did four paintings at once: one with each
hand, one with each bare foot (these being done under
the table at which he was seated), while his eyes were
closed and he carried on a conversation. Each of the four
paintings, by the way, was supposedly by a different one
of the spirit artists (and they were, in fact, in four
distinct styles that an art expert there related to the
named artists)." Read
Loyd's full report....

A MAGNIFICENT AND INSPIRATIONAL TRUE STORY FROM ONE
OF OUR SUBSCRIBERS One of our long time
subscribers, a retired veterinary surgeon and microbiologist
who trained with a Nobel prize winner in medicine, writes
of how he became convinced about the afterlife following
the death of his beloved wife of 44 years. He followed
the instructions of Rob
Smith of the Australian Society for EVP and since
February 15th 2008 has been able to record 153 messages
in French (his first language) in his wife's voice by
his story..... A SWAN IN HEAVEN
Two years before 16 year-old Danny Mandell
died from a degenerative metabolic disorder, his mother
Terri began developing some unexpected psychic abilities.
She had no idea at the time that she was in training
for the remarkable experience of receiving messages
from Danny after his death, and the resulting dialogs
between mother and son form the foundation of a book
called “A Swan in Heaven: Conversations Between
Two Worlds.” While Danny was alive he was
severely disabled and unable to speak. But after death
his language was fluent and his words were insightful,
inspired and eloquent. Read
AFTER DEATH COMMUNICATION: THE
DANNY DIALOGUES Terri emailed
his week to say that she is setting up a Yahoo interactive
forum in which "channeled
from Danny will be periodically posted to help members
understand soul contracts, inter dimensional communication
and the afterlife. Members may interact with one another
to share their grief experiences as well as their intuitive
experiences, supported by channeled messages from Danny.
After-death communication is a remarkable tool for navigating
the grief process, and through meditation, spiritual
growth practices and faith, it is possible for all of
us to open a conduit to the higher realms." To

DR DEATH YOUR FRIEND Michael
Tymn suggests a New Year's Resolution:" Make death
your friend, your daily companion. Rather than thinking
of death as the Grim Reaper, imagine “him”
or “her” as Dr. Death, the greatest and wisest

(I think that's becoming pretty obvious now) and that
life has total meaning and purpose. Thank you so much
for all the good work you do. I just wanted to tell
you about an epiphany I had regarding how totally ridiculous

HONORARY’ NOBEL PRIZE FOR PARANORMAL RESEARCH:
Sadly as yet there is no category of paranormal research
and consciousness studies in the Nobel Prizes so I’d
like to invite you submit your nominations for the award
of an ‘honorary’ Nobel Prize for Research
into the Paranormal. Please nominate anyone who is extending
science to show the world that the paranormal has an
empirical objective and repeatable basis and has nothing
to do with beliefs. We have had a few nominations but
we still have time to highlight the work of all the
contemorary scientists who are pioneering the most important
field in human knowledge.
LEGAL QUESTIONS ANSWERED BY VICTOR ZAMMIT:'SERVICE TO MY REGULAR READERS
AND TO THE COMMUNITY':
whilst this has nothing to do with afterlife matters,
over the many
years of doing afterlife research, I received many questions
from my regular readers who needed legal advice but
did not have the money to go to a lawyer. Accordingly,
I have put on the website a special section for the
many legal questions/answers (e.g. negligence, defamation,
police matters, murder, assault, divorce, Wills, probate,
property, claims against insurance co's., leases, marriage
rights, medical assault, police radars - and for other,
click on archives on the blog) for for my regular readers
- and for general readership and information.

It is vitally important that professional accredited
and registered afterlife researchers be given funding
so that they
can help the world understand that there is an afterlife.
After you have provided for your family in your will
consider making a bequest which will bring about ‘LIGHT’
on a global level after you’ve gone. So far,
we can highly recommend the following legally registered
organizations who will use your funding to benefit
INSPIRATIONAL ADDRESS "Your time is limited, so don't waste
it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by
dogma — which is living with the results of
other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others'
opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most
important, have the courage to follow your heart and
intuition. They somehow already know what you truly
want to become. Everything else is secondary..."Listen
