COMMENTARY: THE EVIDENCE FOR PSYCHIC
ABILITIES IS NOW CONCLUSIVE BUT MORE PEOPLE NEED TO KNOW
In 1997 Dr. Dean Radin,
director of the Consciousness Research Laboratory at the
University of Nevada, published one of the most important
books for anyone interested in the evidence for the 'paranormal'.
Conscious Universe; the Scientific Truth of Psychic Phenomena,
it analyzes the overwhelming scientific evidence for psychic
In just one of a number of examples, he shows how Edwin
May and his associates combined the results of all experiments
with psychic phenomena done at Stanford Research Institute
from 1973 to 1988. There were more than 26,000 separate
trials in experiments conducted over 16 years. The statistical
analysis of these results showed that psychic phenomena
had been demonstrated to exist, with odds against chance
of more than a billion billion to one. Dr. Radin claims
that as yet few scientists and science journalists are
aware of “this dramatic shift in informed opinion”.
NEAR-DEATH EXPERIENCE DOCUMENTARY:

where he works as a consultant at the Institute of Psychiatry.
He is the president of the Horizon Research Foundation,
an organisation that supports research into end-of-life

WHY DO WE REPORT ON CELEBRITIES WHO ACCEPT THE PARANORMAL?
we like it or not, celebrities have a huge amount of influence
in the Western world, especially on the young. We can
see it in the acceptance of fashions, trends and values.
When celebrities have the courage to speak up about their
afterlife-paranormal experiences, it helps many people
to become more confident to talk about their own experiences,
or at least to have an open mind. We hear from many readers
who say that the books
by actress Shirley Maclaine had a huge influence on
them at a time when the paranormal was being attacked
in the mainstream media.

MEDIUMSHIP READING BY GIFTED
BY MENTAL MEDIUM LISA WILLIAMS
Lisa is an evidential medium. She begins by identifying
the spirit specifically, then tells how he died and
that he died recently. She goes on to give several specific
evidential details including recent activities which
the client, Joanna, says no-one could have known. Lisa
came up with many hits to help Joanna cope with her
'INTELLIGENCE' AND 'IGNORANCE':
tend to think of some people as being very highly 'intelligent'
and others as being stupid and 'ignorant'. But highly
credible information, directly from the afterlife dimension,
tells us that when we incarnate, we choose how much
of our intelligence to bring with us according to the
lessons we wish to learn. Many people who have had near-death
experiences say that when they were out of the body
they felt their minds expanding; they say that they
knew answers to every question in the universe. When
we ALL eventually reach the higher regions of the afterlife,
we will ALL be highly intelligent and share knowledge
that we do not have the vocabulary to describe while
INTERVIEW WITH DR. ALAN BOTKIN Clinical psychologist,
Allan Botkin, worked for 20 years treating combat veterans
who had post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). In 1995
he accidentally discovered that a variation of the therapy
he was using (called EMDR) reliably resulted in his patients’
experiencing an after death communication with the deceased
person they were grieving for.
MEDITATION INCREASES BRAIN CELLS
in an eight-week mindfulness meditation program appears
to make measurable changes in brain regions associated
with memory, sense of self, empathy, and stress. In
a study that appeared in Psychiatry Research,
a team led by Harvard-affiliated researchers at Massachusetts
General Hospital (MGH) reported the results of their
study, the first to document meditation-produced changes
over time in the brain’s gray matter. Read
ATHEISM AROUND THE WORLD I
have had people asking me
recently what will happen to those hundreds of millions
of people around the world who grow up as atheists. What
kind of a crossing over are they likely to have? As I
said before, on crossing over what matters is how much
love they have shown in their life - irrespective of what
beliefs they had. It is what people do during their life
on earth and how they relate to others that matters. There
are many atheists who are decent, honest, law abiding
citizens. There are atheists who are highly 'spiritual'
who are doing unselfish service and helping others.
DREAM VISITS WITH LOVED ONES Was
your dream really a visit from a deceased loved one? What

ALAN PEMBERTON INTERVIEWS COLIN FRY ON PHYSICAL MEDIUMSHIP
Colin Fry was a much
loved English medium who died in August, 2015. Best known
for his television mental mediumship program, "The
Sixth Sense", he was also a physical medium.
A SPIRITUAL PERSPECTIVE ON CHALLENGING TIMES
"Life is full of problems. There
are very few roses and mostly thorns. But the power that
guides you is the power that created the universe, the
power that is infinite. Pay no attention to the folly
of those who should know better. Ignore the pinpricks
and jealousies. These are unimportant. Try to feel sorry
for those who do not measure up to what is expected of
them...Strive so that even a greater measure of power
flows through you and brings strength, guidance and love
to those who need your service." from Philosophy
of Silver Birch ed. Stella Storm.
THE POWER OF LISTENING AND CONNECTING
In an effort to break the cycle of isolation
and depression, Colin Easton made a commitment to himself.
A simple commitment to leave his apartment every single
day. Listen as Easton talks about how he started to
break free from his darkness, with the help of strangers.
1) I finally found some time to sit down and enjoy this
week's report...and am especially grateful for introducing
Suzanne Giesseman, as she is yet another major inspiration
and hope, in getting word out about eternal and expanding
consciousness. I would heartily encourage all to visit
as she speaks for Sanaya, another form of group consciousness
that speaks to who we are as Divine beings. And what about
that Thomas Paine....a man after my heart...and now a
part of it forever. Leslie.
2) Thank you so much for always being a steady good wonderful
presence in this world Victor! Your weekly reports bring
me peace. Cynthia.
3) Thank you for your current Friday Report – as
always it is very interesting and informative. I particularly
enjoyed the Joyce Hawkes clip which is particularly very
inspirational. Elizabeth Pretty, N.Z.
MUSIC FOR THE SOUL We remember Canadian
singer, musician, poet and legend, Leonard Cohen, who
died last week at age 82. He was a very spiritual man.
An observant Jew, he was also ordained a Buddhist monk
in 1996, and is on record for saying: "I'm very fond
of Jesus Christ. He may be the most beautiful guy who
walked the face of this earth." His song "Hallelujah"
enigmatic lyrics has been loved and recorded by many
artists; it is a most haunting, beautiful song!
Whilst we encourage and we publish many papers and reports
by afterlife researchers, we are not in a position to

imputed claim that the afterlife and paranormal research
done by the researchers is done in good faith. ALL WORK
