WHAT WILL HAPPEN TO RELIGIONS IN THE AFTERLIFE?
There are five major religions
in the world today: Christianity, Hinduism, Judaism, Buddhism,
and Islam. But researchers estimate that there are more
than 4,200 religions and 'faiths' in total. This week
I was asked whether they all continue to exist in the
afterlife. The answer is yes, and no.
In the initial stages of the astral world,
people still gather together to continue their earthly
religious practice. We are told that they have temples
and preachers, and many think that they have reached the
'heaven' which was promised to their followers alone.
Out-of-body experiencers like Robert Monroe call these
system territories." Some are pleasant, some
are oppressive, and most seem to be boring.
People stay in them until they begin to question and gradually
awaken to the one true religion of love which exists in
the higher areas of the afterlife where there is recognition
of one creator/source and the unity of all. An excellent
book on this subject is William Buhlman's
Adventures in the Afterlife.
IS THERE LIFE AFTER DEATH? FIFTY
YEARS OF RESEARCH AT THE UNIVERSITY OF VIRGINIA
In this Medical Center Hour, faculty from the Division
of Perceptual Studies highlight the unit's work since
its founding, including studies of purported past lives,
near-death experiences, and mind-brain interactions in
phenomena such as deep meditation, veridical out-of-body
experiences, deathbed visions, apparent communication
from deceased persons, altered states of consciousness,
and terminal lucidity in persons with irreversible brain
LIFE AFTER DEATH - WHY THE GROWING
INTEREST? Medical doctor
Elisa Medhurst's blog on Huffington
Post asks this question. Apart from the number of baby
boomers getting old, she suggests that there are three
1) The decline of the power of dogmatic religions.
2) Quantum science is challenging outdated materialism.
3) "Now, the Internet helps us create micro-communities
where we can share those “paranormal” experiences
in a safe, anonymous place free from scorn...even physicians
have become emboldened enough to share the “paranormal”
events they’ve seen throughout their careers during
the dying process of their patients. Beforehand, they
would have feared the ridicule of their peers, who were
probably sharing the same secrets."
DR. EBEN ALEXANDER IS THRIVING
IN THE HEART OF CONSCIOUSNESS Since
his near-death experience in 2008, Dr. Eben Alexander's
worldview has changed profoundly. In this video, he claims:
"It's ultra-real...far more real than this world...it's
impossible to put it all into words...death is not the
end of all. In many ways, it liberates the soul, reuniting
us with souls of departed of loved ones... we must love
ourselves to truly love others, and to truly love our
enemies...we are part of that one mind... to me the deepest
scientific proof of my journey was that the fabric of
the universe is bound together as a tapestry of unconditional
love, for that love has infinite power to heal."
TWO GREAT AFTERLIFE RESEARCHERS
REMEMBERED Dr.Carl Wickland
was a psychiatrist who claimed
to have cured many mental illnesses that he said were
caused by spirit obsession. Anna Wickland was a psychic
sensitive to whom "earthbound" entities could
be transferred after her husband applied a mild electric
shock to the psychiatric patient. Dr. Wickland would then
talk directly to the entity and convince them to move
on with the help of his spirit team. The book is largely
a collection of some verbatim conversations grouped into
various subjects such as marriage disturbances, crime,
suicide, narcotics and inebriety, orphans, selfishness,
and orthodoxy. Download a pdf copy of "Thirty
Years Among the Dead."
JADE SHAW'S OBE FILM INSIGHT
In 2014 Jade Shaw had a transformative
OBE that changed her life. She was interested in both
the science and psychology behind OBEs. After embarking
on an MSc in Transpersonal
Psychology, she began to film interviews about the
transformative effects of OBEs. She created
a film which had its premiere in London in July 1999.
As part of the event, the following panel discussion took
place. The film itself will be released on Youtube in
THE HOLIDAYS CAN BE CHALLENGING
FOR THOSE GRIEVING Susanne
Wilson, an outstanding medium and spiritual teacher, has
created this FREE webinar to help.
Susanne will share:
* What the spirit people and pets want us to know about
holidays on the other side of life.
* How they direct-connect with us, without our needing
to “go and get a reading.”
* A method that Susanne has been teaching for a dozen
years that your spirit loved ones can use to show they
are with you.
* A guided intention exercise to invite more signs &
visits in dreams or meditation.
* Plus, as the spirits request, Susanne will deliver some
evidential mediumship messages to a few attendees chosen
by the spirits. PLACES

ANIMALS IN THE
Craig Hogan has created a superb website called Afterlife
Communication. One of the segments on it is called Characteristics
of the Afterlife. In it he assembled some of the tapes
made by Leslie
Flint, a "direct-voice medium" in which
dead people speak in their own voices about their experiences
in the afterlife. One of the segments is about Animals
in the Afterlife. Listen
think Spiritualism has lost sight of its initial aim,
which was not only to prove the existence of the human
soul beyond death but most importantly to educate humanity
regarding the true nature and purpose of life and the
science of spirit laws that underpin it. The over-emphasis
on giving ’evidence,’ combined with the almost
showbiz presentation and celebrity-style promotion of
certain mediums, is something I find irritating, to say
the least. I would like to see the movement modernise
through embracing the latest cutting-edge scientific discoveries
whilst also returning to the core spiritual values set
out by the early pioneers.”

DYING FOR A BETTER LIFE A
South Korean service is offering free funerals - but only
to the living. More than 25,000 people have participated
in mass "living funeral" services at Hyowon
Healing Center since it opened in 2012, hoping to improve
their lives by simulating their deaths. Dozens took part
in the event, from teenagers to retirees, donning shrouds,
taking funeral portraits, penning their last testaments,
and lying in a closed coffin for around 10 minutes. Funeral
company Hyowon began offering the living funerals to help
people appreciate their lives, and seek forgiveness and
reconciliation with family and friends, said Jeong Yong-mun,
who heads the healing centre. Jeong said he is heartened
when people reconcile at a relative's funeral but is saddened
they wait that long. Read

1) As an Astral traveler, I really appreciate
all your hard work, research, and regular afterlife reports,
not to mention the amazing interviews. I loved the recent
one with Jurgen Ziewe, who is one of the most interesting,
knowledgeable, kind, and humble men. Kindness is always
possible in every situation. Helen

posting this video on this week's Afterlife Report. Tony
3) Gwen’s experience with the torch is the same as
Archie Roy’s. Thank you for Faith Hill. Tricia
