THE GREAT SOUL TRIAL

An eccentric miner – who very few people even noticed – may have accomplished as much to advance the progress of research into survival of death as Dr. Moody achieved when he wrote Life After Life. James Kidd was a reclusive prospector and miner who lived in a ramshackle hut on the edge of a …

THE MUSICAL MEDIUM

… an organised group of musicians who have departed from your world are attempting to establish a precept for humanity, i.e. that physical death is a transition from one state of consciousness to another wherein one retains one’s individuality. (Franz Liszt, 1970) Rosemary Brown might be described as having been as normal as anyone could …

COINCIDENCE or COMMUNICATION?

I was recently asked by a reader of HEAVEN KNOWS whether our departed loved ones really do respond to our requests for confirmation that they made it safely to ‘the other side’. “Aren’t these just coincidences that we read too much into because we want to believe them?” this borderline skeptic asked. Perhaps. Sometimes. But …

UNSEEN REUNIONS

“There is no river, there is no curtain, there is not even a line that separates this life from the other life. It is all here and it is there. I know it is so, for I can see you all, and I see them there at the same time.” These words were spoken by …

In those far-off days, only a local anaesthetic was available for most operations, and during her surgery the doctors had to keep Julia talking and singing so they could locate her …

AN INTERESTING OLD NDE

Much has been written about NDE’s since the late 1970’s, following Dr. Raymond Moody’s ground-breaking book on the subject, ‘Life After Life’. Many have wondered if the reports describing tunnels and lights are genuine experiences, or if they spring from an over-active imagination coloured by previously recorded accounts. This is one of the reasons I …

OH WOW!

Near-death experiencers often say they met deceased loved ones or saw stunning landscapes while they were flat-lining. If they really do take a peek across the veil, shouldn’t one expect that those dying permanently (if there really is such a thing as ‘dying permanently’) have the same or similar experiences? One should. And yes, they …

NDE MOVIES

Happy New Year! I hope 2017 brings you health, happiness and success in all your endeavours. I thought I would do something a little different this time. Someone recently asked on facebook about movies that dealt with near-death experiences.  Yes, there are many, but  listing them on facebook means they’re “here today, gone tomorrow”, so, …
