IS THE CATH0LIC CHURCH ACCEPTING DIRECT SPIRIT CONTACT?
In the old days Catholic priests used to tell people
that if they had a direct spirit visitation or went
to see a medium they would be communicating with devils
and demons. In many cases people
who were natural mediums tried to shut down their gifts
out of fear that they were dealing with something evil.
But clearly there are many within the Catholic Church
hierarchy who are open to direct spirit contact.
1) Pope Pius 12th in 1952 supported
the works of the afterlife Electronic Voice Phenomena
(EVP) investigator Friedrich Jurgenson.
Spokesman Father Gino Concetti
issued a statement "God allows our dear departed
persons to send messages to guide us in certain difficult
moments of our lives. The Church has decided not to
forbid anymore the dialogue with the deceased with the
condition that these contacts are carried out with a
serious religious and scientific purpose."
3) In the letter 'Luvenescit Ecclesia'
of the Catholic Church 14th June 1916, the Vatican now
urges its members to accept and welcome "with loving
arms" members of its congregation who express what
it calls "Charismatic gifts" - which include
the gift of healing, of 'miracles', and discernment
of spirits (mediumship). Read
4.Father Francois Brune, a Catholic
priest and afterlife
researcher talks about the 'gradual evolution' of attitude
by the Catholic Church. He claimed that in the last
few years the Movement of Hope Association has been
organizing conferences for grieving parents. Priests
like himself give talks about spirit communication "while
at the same time mediums are available to these parents
elsewhere in the same hotel". Read
his full article about changing attitudes.
CHARLES TART ON WHY BOTH SCIENCE
AND RELIGION MUST EVOLVE
Dr. Charles Tart discusses how the scientific method
is compatible with spiritual investigation and how both
must be genuinely evidence based.
HOW NEAR DEATH EXPERIENCES ARE BRINGING SCIENCE AND
SPIRITUALITY TOGETHER Dr.
Eben Alexander (Proof of Heaven) explains why he believes
that his near-death experience is totally consistent
with the leading edges of scientific understanding today.
ARTHUR FINDLAY AND JOHN SLOAN
Findlay was a highly successful stockbroker who in 1918
attended a seance with direct
voice medium John Sloan. Here is his description
of what happened: "..... for three hours, dozens
of voices speaking to different people, men's voices,
women's voices, children's voices, all of which I was
told came from people called dead. A woman's voice spoke
to a man sitting on my left. It gave a name and referred
to happenings at his home. It specially referred to
Tom, who was giving his father trouble, and then came
advice as to how he should be dealt with. Intimate family
matters were discussed between my neighbor and this
female voice, and finally with love it said "Good-bye".
'That was my wife," he whispered to me. "I
never come here but she comes back to me. She always
knows everything that goes on at home." Findlay
himself received highly confidential information from
his dead father - something that no living person knew
about. Read about Arthur Findlay's Experiences in his
the Edge of the Etheric.
THE ARTHUR FINDLAY COLLEGE After
learning about the afterlife (through John Sloan), Arthur
Findlay dedicated the rest of his life to researching
and promoting knowledge about it. In his will he left
his home, Stansted Hall, to the Spiritualists' National
Union to be used as a College for Psychic Science.

IT'S LATER THAN
We in the West have a peculiar attitude to TIME. Perhaps
because of gross materialism and commercialism and secularism
pushed to its extreme we are given the impression by
the mind-manipulators that we’re going to live
for a thousand years. But it’s later
than you think! The reality of life is that time is
short and sooner or later we all have to cross over.
Millionaires and billionaires, the big and powerful
and those 'on the breadline' will suddenly find that
their life is over. And stunningly, some of those who
lived in poverty, especially if they provided unselfish
service - will find themselves living in much better
conditions than those billionaires who were selfish.
And the afterlife is timeless. According to those informed
from the otherside - we have a 'timeless eternity' in
which to continue to refine and evolve.
GALACTIC AWAKENING As
our world becomes
more open to the existence of other dimensions, many
mediums and circles around the world are having direct
contact with energies that claim to come from non-earthly
origins. Sonia Rinaldi receives pictures of ETs. The
Scole Group had an ET materialise. George Moss and the
The Kingsclere Group receive teachings
from Salumet and Dr Manjir Samanta-Laughton (author
Science - Inside the Mind of God) is now teaching
course about Galactic Activation. William Treurniet
worked for several years with the medium Paul Hamden
to collect interesting teachings
from the Zetas, beings from the Zeta Reticuli constellation.
Quick Zeta Primer is an excellent introduction.
DR BRIAN WEISS ON CONNECTING WITH EVERYDAY ANGELS Dr.
Brian Weiss and Oprah explain how our loved ones and
pets are still available to us and can be even closer
to us than when they were alive.
DETECTIVES Hermosa Beach
Police Department’s senior detective Raul Saldana
television, after doing cases with psychics such as

exclude working with a psychic if any members of my
family had very serious problems …” This
was after the interesting case of Linda Sobek, a model
who mysteriously disappeared in California
years ago. Senior Detective Mark Wright worked psychic
Laurie McQuarie who was able to locate Linda Sobek’s
black purse. He stated very clearly that he always welcomes

information could be vital to solving a dead file.

HIGHLY INSPIRATIONAL MUSIC: GOING HOME
William Arms Fisher, a pupil of the Czech composer Antonin
Dvorak, wrote the lyrics to and adapted the music to
the theme of Dvorak's
2nd Movement to the New World Symphony. It is a
moving expression of that nostalgia of the soul all
human beings feel.
Robin you will be very much missed.
