DO CELEBRITIES RETAIN THEIR STATUS IN THE AFTERLIFE?
We are repeatedly informed by highly credible
afterlife sources, like Mons Hugh Benson, Silver Birch
and others like them, that what really counts
in the afterlife is how spiritually advanced a person
is. Many who live humbly, while alive, will be "stars"
in the afterlife because of their spiritual progress.
At the same time, many whose faces once graced global
magazines may choose to live in obscurity.
The same rule applies to movie stars, presidents,
and famous entertainers. One could be a king or queen
or a dictator or a religious leader; the critical thing
their condition in the spirit world is their level of
consciousness - the vibrations of their spirit body which
are reflected in the brightness of their aura. What matters
is not how much money or power or influence you had while
alive, not your good taste or how well you dressed, but
how much love and kindness you showed.
the afterlife those who have the higher vibrations,
the brighter auras, the advanced spirituality - these
are the celebrities and VIPs. Earthly celebrities who
cross over, such as Elvis Presley, Michael Jackson,
Frank Sinatra, Elizabeth Taylor, Pavarotti and others,
will, like all of us, see their lives from a spiritual
perspective. Any position which they have would be because
of their advanced spirituality, not because of what
they were in one brief lifetime.
NEAR- DEATH EXPERIENCES ACROSS CULTURES Religious
scholar, Dr. Gregory Shushan, talks about the parallels
between near-death experience accounts across cultures.

SIR FRANCIS BACON'S ADVICE TO
THE MATERIALISTS Skeptics, materialists
other non-believers should heed the statement by Sir
Francis Bacon, one of the world's leading empiricists
of his time: "Facts often appear incredible only
because we are ill-informed and cease to appear marvelous
when our knowledge is extended."
ALBERT EINSTEIN'S OPINION ABOUT SKEPTICAL OPPOSITION
“Great spirits have always
encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds.”
GALVANI was an Italian physician, physicist,
biologist and philosopher, who discovered electricity.
“I am attacked by two very opposite sects —
the scientists and the know-nothings. Both laugh at
me, calling me 'the frogs' dancing master'. Yet I know
I have discovered one of the greatest forces in nature.”

EASY INTUITION TIP WITH SUSANNE

when you are trying to make a decision. Susanne is a
medium, intuition expert, author, and spiritual teacher.
JESUS NEVER SAID THE WORDS "Depart from me, ye cursed,
unto everlasting fire, which was prepared for the devil
and his angels."
A highly credible, former Catholic Monsignor,
Hugh Benson, tells us, directly from the afterlife:
"Here in the gospel, we are supposed to have the
very words with which God will condemn the transgressor.
In the spirit world, it fills us with unspeakable horror
to contemplate upon the enormity of any person authoritatively
teaching others that the Father of us all could utter
words of such fearful condemnation." (Mons.Hugh
p. 42, '95.ed.).

MATERIALISATION IN DAYLIGHT
AND IN SUNLIGHT IN THE 1950s IN SAN FRANCISCO
The book The Technique of Daylight Materialization
contains stunning eye-witness accounts and reports by
credible witnesses of materialisations of loved ones
(and animals) that occurred
around Rev. James Jacob Dickson. They occurred in seances
and spontaneously (on one occasion even at the beach)
during the period 1899 to 1954. He claims that he was
born with this very rare ability and his parents talked
to materialised spirits around his cradle (physical
medium Marion Dampier-Jeans reports something similar).
The picture above left is of the medium James Dickson,
then aged 19, with his materialised spirit friend, Minnie

for reminding us about this wonderful book]
CLOSED MINDED SKEPTICS REFUSED TO LOOK AT THE AFTERLIFE
One of the most popular authors of all time, Sir Arthur
in his book The History of Spiritualism - Vol. 1
tells how brilliant scientist and afterlife investigator
Sir William Crookes repeatedly asked his fellow scientists
to come and witness the materialisations and experimental
evidence he had experienced through physical mediums.
"In his published accounts, Sir William Crookes
gave the letters in which he asked Stokes, the secretary
of the Royal Society, to come down and see these things
with his own eyes. By his refusal to do so, Stokes placed
himself in exactly the same position as those Vatican
Cardinals who would not look at the moons of Jupiter
through Galileo's telescope. Material (reductionist)
science, when faced with a new problem, showed itself
to be just as bigoted, just as stupid - as medieval
theology." (p.249 - read

ALWAYS POPULAR QUESTION: WHAT
HAPPENS WHEN YOU DIE? "Everyone
will live after what you call death, not because
of believing in a creed, a doctrine or dogma, but because
it is an unalterable natural law. It has nothing to
do with religion. It is a law as equal to the law of
cause and effect. The evidence that is available to
you will, if you are reasonable, convince you that life,
because it is spiritual in essence, cannot end when
death comes to the physical body.... You will all live
after you have ‘died,’ and you will not
realize until then what it is to live or to feel the
real glory of life untrammeled, free to rejoice in liberty
of spirit which your imprisoned souls cannot understand
Silver Birch, 69.)
AN OPEN-MINDED SCEPTIC REACTS
TO AN EVIDENTIAL MEDIUM'S READING Marcus
Day is a young English medium who is currently recording

WARNING: THERE ARE ALSO PSYCHIC
FRAUDS It is important
to use discernment when having a reading with a psychic
(who tells your future) or a medium (who connects with
spirit). A "Psychic" who
tries to use fear, intimidation or any other similar
tactic is a fraud and should be avoided at all costs.
Common scams include telling you that you are under
a curse of some sort, or that you need to "cleanse"
your money or that you need readings on a regular basis
in order to achieve your goals. Putting spells on others,
either in revenge or to force them to love you, is against
the fundamental spiritual law of free will and is highly
There are many wonderful, ethical, fair and honest psychics,
and the use of their psychic powers that they provide
is indeed truly priceless. But you should educate yourself
on what to look out for. Ethical mediums should never
deliver bad news and should never tell you that someone
is going to die. Read

HIGHLY INSPIRATIONAL MUSICPURE MAGIC!! A VERY SPECIAL
PRESENTATION BY TWO OF THE BIGGEST NAMES IN SHOW BUSINESS
The legendary ELVIS PRESLEY and the great CELINE
DION join together in "If I can Dream" Celine
Dione was born in 1968. Elvis sang that very same song
in the same venue in 1968 to a huge crowd. Camera clever
editing shows Celine next to Elvis (who died in 1977)
in the same 1968 performance. Very clever, very interesting,
very emotionally moving. This brilliant song has deep
meaning, as relevant for today as it was back then.
There must be lights burning brighter
Got to be birds flying higher in a sky more blue
If I can dream of a better land
Where all my brothers walk hand in hand
Tell me why, oh why, oh why can't my dream come true
There must be peace and understanding sometime
Strong winds of promise that will blow away the doubt
If I can dream of a warmer sun
Where hope keeps shining on everyone
Tell me why, oh why, oh why won't that sun appear
We're lost in a cloud
With too much rain
We're trapped in a world
That's troubled with pain
But as long as a man
Has the strength to dream
He can redeem his soul and fly
Deep in my heart there's a trembling question
Still I am sure that the answer gonna come somehow
Out there in the dark, there's a beckoning candle
And while I can think, while I can talk
While I can stand, while I can walk
While I can dream, please let my dream
Come true, right now
Let it come true right now.
