St Valentine's Day.
Its real origins are
lost in time, but since the early 1900s it has been
recognized as a significant cultural, religious, and commercial
celebration of romantic love and friendship in many regions
around the world.
A FUNDAMENTAL MISUNDERSTANDING ABOUT THE AFTERLIFE We
sometimes hear people claim that they know, without a doubt,
that in the afterlife you don't have a body. They feel sure
that you don't eat or drink, and you float around as a kind
of blissful disembodied awareness.
While that might have been what they were taught, or even
what they experienced during a NDE, it is important to keep
an open mind. There are many lines of evidence that suggest
that, at least in the initial stages, people will find themselves
in a world that is very physical and similar to life here.
This is important because we sometimes hear that there are
people who don't realise that they have died.
Modern afterlife researchers have thousands of sources from
which to gather information. They analyse the credibility
of the witnesses and compare and contrast the experiences
across different countries and cultures and across time.
And they triangulate and see if there is consistency across
the various categories of evidence.
JURGEN ZIEWE ON THE SOLIDITY OF THE
AFTERLIFE Jurgen Ziewe has
been having out-of-body experiences for hours at a time
in full waking consciousness for over forty years. In his
talk for the Zoom Global Gathering last week, he explained
that we need to get used to the fact that our "afterlife"
will be more real not less real, more
"physical" not less "physical". To get
inspiration and more in-depth knowledge of the astral worlds,
see Jurgen's books,
and his video
During the 1980s and 1990s, a group in Europe received miraculous
communications through radios, faxes, computers and televisions.
These included pictures which show a real world where people
work in buildings, have relationships, keep pets, travel,
and explore other dimensions. Below is an image of a Chinese
healer, Yang Fud-se, transmitted via computer file to ITC
researchers Maggy and Jules Harsch-Fischbach of Luxembourg
(circa 1987). Read
more about these communications.
ANOTHER TRUSTED VOICE FROM THE AFTERLIFE
he was alive, Hugh Benson was a priest of the Catholic Church,
a monsignor at the Vatican. After he died, he dictated six
books about the afterlife through medium Anthony Borgia.
Read more about how the books
Mons. Benson tells us that it has been his work to welcome
thousands of people when they first cross over and explains:
" ... many souls of the earth world are almost shocked
to be told that the spirit world is a solid world, a substantial
world, with real, live people in it. They think that that
is far too material, far too like the earth world; hardly,
in fact, one step removed from it with its spirit landscape
and sunshine, its houses and building, its rivers and lakes,
inhabited by sentient beings!" (Life in the World

SOME OF THE BEST EVIDENCE WE HAVE
- THE LESLIE FLINT TAPES The spirit world
organised a 20-year project to bring hundreds of people
from all levels of society to answer questions about the
conditions they found themselves in when they died. Everyone
from Queen Victoria to George Wilmott, a twice-divorced
rag and bone merchant, spoke at length in their own voices.
They used the energy of direct voice medium Leslie Flint.
In the recording below, Leslie Flint is sitting with his
friends, Betty Green and George Woods, when they all hear
the voice of George Olsen, someone they had known in life,
coming from mid-air. Listen
to more of these extraordinary recordings.
DIRECT VOICE MEDIUMSHIP IS DIFFERENT FROM TRANCE MEDIUMSHIP
Direct voice mediumship is a kind of physical mediumship
where the voice of a spirit comes from above the medium's
head. The spirit team creates a temporary artificial voice
box, made from a substance called ectoplasm. Drawn from
the medium's body, it is highly sensitive to light, and
for this reason direct voice mediumship almost always takes
place in complete darkness. You don't usually see the medium's
mouth moving in direct voice mediumship. Leslie Flint was
a well-known direct voice medium, but there were many others.
ELAINE THORPE TRANCE MEDIUM Elaine Thorpe
is a trance medium who brings through the spirit of Jonathan
Hunter, a Victorian gentleman who lived from 1845-91. Elaine
talks about her journey to become a medium, and then goes
into a trance, allowing Jonathan to explain his life in
19th century London as well as his existence now.

NDE THAT LED TO A SEARCH FOR HEALING
Virginia Jablonski, a gun-carrying diplomatic
security agent before her Near-death Experience, contracted
Lyme disease, which was misdiagnosed for a long time. After
a vivid NDE, she went on a quest for spiritual knowledge
and healing. The video is set to open at 8 mins 35, where
she describes her 14,000 hours of traveling, studying, and
doing courses. She says that eventually she gained the insight
that "true healing comes from within," and what really
worked for her was forgiveness.
THE MEDIUMSHIP OF SANDY INGHAM
Medium and Spirit Artist Sandy Ingham, from Cornwall,
England, is not really an artist herself. She goes into
a trance and a spirit she calls Leo takes her hand, and
draws portraits of people's loved ones in spirit. On her
webpage, you can scroll down to see some images she has
compared with real-life photos. But the image below
is special. It was drawn before the child, Agnieszka Senenko,
had been born. It pictured her at age nine.
SWEDENBORG AND LIFE: WILL YOUR
BODY LOOK THE SAME WHEN YOU DIE? One
of the most impressive reporters about the afterlife was
Swedenborg. He was recognised by his peers as a scientific
genius and is considered one of the most brilliant men
who ever lived. From the age of 55, he began having out-of-body
experiences during which he communicated in the afterlife
with everyone he knew that had died. He had 27 years of
exploring the astral realms. At a time when Protestant
Christians were teaching that the afterlife was either
hell for eternity or heaven on a cloud, Swedenborg was
saying that people in the initial stages of the afterlife
have solid bodies, live in houses, are surrounded by familiar
plants, animals, and landscapes like those of earth.
LOVE CHANGES EVERYTHING “There
are only two emotions: love and fear. All positive emotions
come from love, all negative emotions from fear. From love
flows happiness, contentment, peace, and joy. From fear
comes anger, hate, anxiety and guilt. It's true that there
are only two primary emotions, love and fear. But it's more
accurate to say that there is only love or fear, for we
cannot feel these two emotions together, at exactly the
same time. They're opposites. If we're in fear, we are not
in a place of love. When we're in a place of love, we cannot
be in a place of fear.” Elisabeth Kübler-Ross
WAS CHICO XAVIER OF BRAZIL THE MOST RESPECTED MEDIUM EVER?
As well as writing 507 books
dictated by spirits,
Francisco Candido Xavier (known as Chico Xavier) became
a vehicle for people in spirit to write more than 10,000
personal letters to their loved ones. He never accepted
payment and was always helping people who came to his house.
Many times he slept only a few hours each day. The contents
of his psychographed letters were accepted in Brazilian
courts three times - in 1979,1982, and 1985. In 2014 a group
of experimenters analyzed a set of 13 letters allegedly
written by the same spiritual author (J.P.). They checked
the accuracy of 99 items of verifiable information contained
in the letters. 98% of these items were rated as "Clear
and Precise Fit", and no item was rated as "no
Fit." A lovely film was made in 2010 about his
life. Maximise the video to read the closed captions in
MEMORIES OF CHICO XAVIER (1910 - 2002)
Geraldo Lemos Neto met Chico Xavier in 1981 and became a
close friend. He shares some stories of Chico's extraordinary
humanity and mediumistic gifts, and says that he is convinced
that Chico was "the highest spirit living among us."

THANK YOU FOR YOUR PRAYERS
A few weeks ago many of us here in Eastern Ausralia were
asking for prayers from our friends to end the monster
fires burning out of control since September. Many of
you responded with genuine love and concern for the people
and animals affected.
We are delighted to report that most of the East coast,
has had a deluge of rain over the past week. Sydney had
391.6 millimeters (15.4 inches) over four days -- the
city's heaviest rainfall in thirty years. Sydney's dams
have gone from 40% to 75% full, their highest total since
April 2018 and the Rural Fire Service has announced that
all of the remaining fires have officially been contained.
We still need follow up rains to break the drought, but
it's still raining, and this is a HUGE step forward. THANK

Thursday / Friday morning as I prepare for my work. I
listen to your latest podcasts & interviews. Thank
you for sharing. I appreciate your ongoing commitment
to spiritual growth." Sandra
2) "God bless you both for all the very hardworking
tenacious work you both do for us all and so many others.
I am so eternally grateful." Phyllis
3) "Our conversations with the Zetas speaking through
the medium, Paul Hamden, indicated that such changes as
those flagged by William Buhlman are related to the "ascension
process" which involves an increase in the level
of vibration of the human collective consciousness. This
article describes the process." William Treurniet.
