COMMENTARY: HOW CAN WE OVERCOME THE FEAR OF DYING?
We often hear from people who admit
that they are enormously frightened of dying. This
is a widely held fear in our death-denying society which
even has a name - thanatophobia.
While mainstream culture has little to offer people
who suffer from this fear, there are many resources
available for those who seek them out.
Our book A Lawyer Presents the Evidence for the
Afterlife and the free Friday Afterlife Report
(now in its 21st year)
that you are reading are designed to introduce people
to some of those resources. Watch the videos about near-death experiences, end of life experiences, and after-death contacts. Read the
books, listen to the podcasts,
have a reading with an evidential medium, or open yourself to
a guided or self-guided afterlife connection. Our online zoom groups will give you the perfect opportunity to talk directly with people who have had many years of afterlife contact who will be only too pleased to share their experiences with you.
Guaranteed, if you put the effort in, you will come
to realise that as Silver Birch says "There
is nothing to fear in death. Death is a great liberator;
death brings freedom. You rejoice when babies come into
your world. There are many who cry in our world when
babies are about to be born into your world. Similarly,
there is weeping when people die in your world, but
there is rejoicing in ours. Death usually means that
the life has served its purpose .... and the individual
is ready to enjoy all the tremendous richness and beauty
that the spirit life has to offer."
DURING HER NEAR-DEATH EXPERIENCE
NANCY RYNES LEARNED THE ART OF SPIRITUAL COMMUNICATION As a scientist, science writer, and corporate trainer, for over two decades Nancy Rynes was a scientific skeptic. She remained an atheist until her life-changing bicycling accident and near-death experience (NDE). She says that her NDE was so wonderful that she did not want to return to life. Her spirit friends laughed and told her she had already agreed to do so. They showed her something like a video of her pre-life planning session.
TALKING WITH NEAR-DEATH EXPERIENCERS REDUCES FEAR OF DEATH
Back in 2006, Dr. Kenneth Ring described research he had carried out with senior citizens, college students, and people who had contemplated suicide (see 'Lessons from the Light'). He found that watching videos of testimonials by people who had an NDE, talking to an experiencer, and reading about NDEs had the following effects:
1. A decrease in fear of death.
2. An increase in belief that the moment of death will be peaceful.
3. An increase in belief in life after death.
4. A decrease in belief that life after death will be unpleasant.
5. An increase in belief that one will be reunited with deceased loved ones.
6. An increased belief in God.
PATIENTS EXPERIENCE VISIONS OF LOVED ONES
BEFORE THEY DIE In all cultures, people who are dying are sometimes observed to start talking to loved ones who have already died in the days before they die. Some say that they can see beautiful places in the spirit world and hear beautiful music. Doctors and nurses working in hospice have incredible stories to share.
JURGEN ZIEWE ENDORSES THE VIDEO BY WILLIAM BUHLMAN FEATURED LAST WEEK Jurgen Ziewe writes: "So good watching the video (Ghosts and Demons - Be Not Afraid) of fellow Astral Traveller William Buhlman.
I can confirm every word he said. I met William at my book launch at a conference in 2013. He had his stand right next to mine. A wonderful guy. This photo was taken at lunch in a pub near the conference, where we had fish ‘n chips. Consensus among Astral Travellers has always been important to me especially with high experiencers like William. I like the way he spells it out so strongly and confidently which of course then just confirms what I found. I am often still cautious, but when I find observations match that is really great."
CYRUS KIRKPATRICK AND SUSANNE WILSON DISCUSS MYTHS ABOUT THE AFTERLIFE Susanne Wilson and Cyrus Kirkpatrick discuss their experiences of their out-of-body experiences, subjective vs. objective realms, objective sight of 'spirits', meeting Montague Keen during an experiment, when philosophizing increases grief. Susanne gives unexpected readings to live audience members, and more.
THE REINCARNATION PROCESS - A SCIENTIFIC PERSPECTIVE Adrian Klein Ph.D. argues that there is an overwhelming supportive database of case reports suggesting reincarnation. His new book goes one step beyond, offering some preliminary hints to the process of the reincarnating entity's coupling to its would-be material hosting cell, a scientifically acceptable tenet supported by most recent interdisciplinary research data.

NEUROSCIENTIST SAYS CONSCIOUSNESS IS NOT A PRODUCT OF
THE BRAIN University
of Oregon Neuroscience Professor, Marjorie Woollacott,
claims that terminal lucidity and evidential dream communications
are evidence that consciousness is not a product of
the brain, and can survive death. She cites recent work on terminal lucidity
by Dr. Alexander Batthyany.
LOVE, GRIEF, AND POSTMORTEM SURVIVAL WITH AUGUST GOFORTH August Goforth, a licensed psychotherapist in private practice in New York City, is also an intuitive-mental and psychophysical spirit medium. With coauthorship from the realm of spirit, he has written The Risen: Dialogues of Love, Grief & Survival;
The Risen: A Companion to Grief; Tangible Dreaming; and Grief: Ponderings From The Afterlife.
In this video, he describes his childhood experiences growing up in a family of mediums. He shares the circumstances of his relationship with Timothy Gray, Tim's death, and their eventual communication link. He explains many subtleties of mediumistic communication and the role that is played by the emotions of grief and love.
SONIA RINALDI'S NEW BOOK: ALPHA 1 MISSION: ON THE BACKGROUND OF INSTRUMENTAL TRANSCOMMUNICATION
In this channeled text, received by Dr. Sonia Rinaldi from a Spirit communicator known as Gregory, we follow the journey of higher beings from a spiritual city over Earth who accompany the evolution of man. We learn about the technology they utilize to help Earth ascend and how they use instrumental transcommunication to help prove that life continues after death. Accompanying them on this expedition are visitors from the distant star known as Aldebaran. Originally published in Portuguese in the 1980s, the book is now being released in English after Sonia’s spirit friends advised her to do so to reach a wider audience during this critical time of our planet’s ascension. See Video.

Sometimes we receive feedback that moves us to the core and reminds us why we undertake this work.
"I was a police officer for over 20 years and
I suffered from nightmares for years. I never tried
to get help due to the social stigma attached to it.
I have only regained any semblance of rest because of
a past life regression that I did about two years ago.
It absolutely changed my life, for the better. The nightmares
are gone and I am a more compassionate man. My wife
has even remarked that the change in me is profound.
Gone, is the anger and mistrust I held in my heart for
so many years.
Your Friday reports have opened
something inside of me that I thought had died. I have
forwarded your Friday reports to many of my police officer
friends hoping that it will change their lives like
it has changed mine. You will never know how much I
appreciate your tireless work. Thank you from the bottom
of this old cop's heart." Mark
