The Author Narrates…

Good morning from the slightly chilly but still beautiful county of Surrey.

Over the course of the past few days, I have been recording myself narrating chapters from my first book, ‘A Journey Into The Mysteries of Life (Lessons From The World Beyond): Book One – The End of the Beginning‘. I have already loaded six of these videos onto You Tube and the resulting playlist is my Audio Book of sorts.

I will continue to add to the playlist during the coming days.

In the meantime, I am delighted to share the recordings with you all today 🙂

The Path to Choose

The_Path_to_Choose

Good evening from the beautifully verdant and peaceful county of Surrey.

I have been facing a conundrum of late… one that I summed up succinctly on a Facebook posting of mine yesterday:

Just re-reading the original full manuscript of my book, which originally contained about 540 pages worth of material. Such was the volume of the material, I decided to break the book down into manageable ‘chunks’, so to speak.

When I say I’m struggling to decide which book (2 or 3) requires prioritising, I truly mean it. Given that Book 2 is focusing on the United States of America – and given that many of the events I was starting to write/am already writing about – are happening now, I’m beginning to debate whether to convert that book into blog postings. It is probable that I will follow this course of action.

This will then enable me to focus on Book 3, which covers geological and astrophysical subjects covered by Grandad and Sis.

Sounds like a good plan to me

And this is precisely what I am intending to do.

North America on Globe

The United States of America… a country very close to my heart, a country filled to the brim with good friends, thanks to FreedomSlips Revolution Radio.

The country is also very close to my Sister’s heart as it is the location of her new Earthly home. Whilst she has always acknowledged that the country is going to face considerable challenges (and arguably already is) – and that she herself felt some trepidation prior to her reincarnation – she has assured me that the spirit of the American people is strong, that they will face those challenges fearlessly with steely determination and compassion.

Over the coming days, I shall be sharing information provided to me over the years by my Grandfather and my Sister. I acknowledge in advance that some of the details may be considered controversial. Even during her life, my Sister always stood for fairness, always cautioning that one should remain non-judgmental (“… everyone screws up so who are we to judge…?“). Thus, she has provided panoramas to many pictures, providing completeness to much which, to me at least, had been obscured.

The subjects to be covered are:

a)   Facts of Fictions or Fictionalised Fact – the Life Stories of Presidents;
b)   The Current Situation as it Stands;
c)   The Increasing Rise of the Police State;
d)   The Foolish Prodding of Mother Bear;
e)   Assassination or Coup d’Êtat – America’s Last President;
f)    The Determination of the Good American People – the Future;
g)   9/11.

For now, I will share the introduction I had originally written for the second book. I had reproduced one of my blog postings as part of the introduction so shall only provide the appropriate link to the blog concerned.

As I type, I am listening to livestreaming of the Million Mask March – an incredibly momentous event happening simultaneously in 400 different locations around the World.

People are becoming increasingly angry at the intransigence and corruption endemic within bloated global Governments – all bought and paid for by the Corporations who contributed financially to so-called bipartisan parties during the Kabuki Theatre otherwise known as electioneering.

Personal liberties and rights to free speech are becoming eroded each and every day. Governments are increasingly showing signs of fearing the very people who elected them to serve their interests. Stamping down on individual freedoms with measures draconian enough to send shivers down the ghosts of Orwell’s and Huxley’s spines… yes, Governments are certainly fearing the people.

Certain countries around the World are accustomed to such restrictions already, with many countries in former Soviet regions still subject to the rules that hampered progress under previous rule. Meet the new boss, same as the old boss. However, one particular country prides itself on its reputation as the bastion of free speech, the home of the free and the brave… and suddenly, the people are finally facing the daunting realisation that everything they believed was true is only an illusion.

My Sister’s warnings pertaining to the future of the United States of America have not eased up. If anything, they have intensified in recent times. The wealth of information provided has been such that it has been necessary to collate the messages and the corresponding research into sub-sections (chapters). From the natural disasters that have afflicted the United States with an ever-increasing ferocity in recent times, to the day that changed the world back in 2001… there is much ground to cover.

Back on 18 June 2013, I posted a blog covering the pains awaiting the United States of America. I feel it prudent at this point to reproduce this blog posting here…

A Time To Be Candid – Part Two

And I shall close this blog with an image shared on the 18th June 2013 blog:

Thoughts: Earth’s Magnetic Reversal

Image from Wikipedia

Image from Wikipedia

Good evening from the beautiful county of Surrey. It has been the most gorgeous day – wonderfully warm with clear blue skies. It is good to feel the Sun’s warming, healing rays kissing one’s skin once more.

As many good friends know, I have been watching the ongoing developments with our beautiful Planet’s protective shield, otherwise known as its magnetosphere. The topic has been a prominent area of discussion with my Sister – one she first raised a shade under 7 years ago to date. Her revelations were detailed on two earlier blogs of mine: July 27th 2013’s Thoughts: Interdimensional Overdrive and July 16th 2014’s Our Planet’s Weakening Magnetosphere.

The incredible Ben Davidson, known globally as Suspicious 0bservers, posted his own update video, ‘5 Truths About Earth’s Magnetic Reversal‘, on his website and You Tube channel:

To summarise the five truths:

Earth’s Magnetic Poles are Shifting:
Ben discusses the hastening acceleration of the poles, a fact confirmed by NASA during recent months, and speculates as to whether the future projected ‘slowdown’ is, in fact, understated.

Earth’s Magnetic Field Is Fading
The weakening of the magnetosphere is hastening. A strong degree of non-homogeneity or non-uniformity with this weakening is occurring, with one of the weakest field levels existing over the area known as the South Atlantic Anomaly (off the northern coast of Brazil).

Poles Are Moving Towards Each Other
There is a general assumption that the reversal is/will be uniform in nature (i.e., a straightforward swap). This isn’t likely to be the case. Evidence is mounting that the poles are moving towards each other – Magnetic North descending towards Magnetic South with an ultimate meeting point, which Ben ascertains to be below the equatorial region near the Indonesia Bend. This location would be fresh in the memories of those who have followed Ben for a significant period of time, especially in relation to the South Bali buoy situation. The hypothesis presented in the video suggests that if the South Pole were to remain in the region of the Bend, the North Pole’s approximate antipodean location would be off the coast of Venezuela, just between the Bermuda Triangle and the South Atlantic Anomaly.

Now… this is interesting to me. I shall share why further down the page.

Magnetic Reversals are Linked with Extinction Events
There is strong evidence to suggest that Extinction Level Events (ELEs) follow a Magnetic Reversal. A weakening magnetosphere allows the escape of oxygen from the planet, leading possibly to global hypoxia. There is the possible danger of the occurrence of a Starwater-type event, such as an ARkStorm (i.e., the Atmospheric River storm scenario/hypothesis proposed by the United States Geological Society). The Planet would  also become particularly susceptible to the effects of CMEs that would barely have caused even a dent to the magnetosphere in times past.

The Atmospheric Rivers scenario is highly reminiscent of the  ‘water in the skies’ described in the Vedic Scriptures which, if I recall correctly, is widely not believed to have been ascribed as any meteorological phenomenon noted today. Worthy of further investigation, I feel.

The Reversal May Come Sooner Than Expected
Indeed, professors at Berkeley UC have indicated that magnetic reversals can occur rapidly – within a human lifetime.

MY THOUGHTS

Prior to commencing the journey upon this particular train of thought of mine, I wish to enter a disclaimer. I have not discussed these views with Ben nor are they to be attributed to him. The following comments are my thoughts and opinions only.

My Sister and I have been discussing the Magnetic Reversal for a number of years; whilst there is a danger of sounding repetitive, I strongly feel that it is worth quoting from the July 2014 blog, ‘Our Planet’s Weakening Magnetosphere’:

Quoting from the 27 July 2013 posting: “Geomagnetic North and South Poles are wandering and will continue their meanderings until they finally decide upon a permanent move. My Sister has compared the speed of the switch as ‘comparable to the snapping of an elastic band‘. There will be no land-consuming mega-tsunami, no folding of mountains, etc. To quote my Sister, ‘there will be an abundance of auroras all over the World while the Poles are deciding where they are finally going to settle‘. That’s not to say that there won’t be effects on everyday life – there certainly would be. She has suggested a possible connection between increased volcanic/tectonic activity and magnetic instability. It stands to reason that our Planet would need to release the pressures incurred during particularly stressful transitional periods in its cycle – necessary for our Planet’s wellbeing… humans may not share that particular viewpoint.”

I have been meticulously studying the notes of my many conversations with my Sister. Interestingly, I came across the notes of one of our January 2011 conversations, during which my Sister revealed:-

–   Geomagnetic flips occur more frequently than is believed;
–   The reason the magnetosphere is weakening (i.e. the Planet’s preparation for  its geomagnetic flip);
–   Magnetic changes being ‘behind’ the increased animal deaths, human behavioural changes, increased volcanic/tectonic action and climate extremes/changes;
–   The suddenness of the changes and the fact that the reversal was fairly imminent in our timescale.”

It is worth re-reading the July 2014 blog, as it provides a link to Suspicious 0bserver’s ‘Super-Flood’ You Tube video.

What has piqued my interest, however, was Ben’s hypothesis concerning the ultimate locations of the post-reversal Poles.    A screen-capture of the video segment is provided for your information and perusal:

Screenshot from S0's Video of 13 April 2015 - Five Truths About Earth's Magnetic Reversal

And now… here is an excerpt from pages 141-143, Chapter 19 of the original unpublished manuscript for ‘A Journey Into The Mysteries of Life’ – written back in 2012.  A study in siblings working together to reach a conclusion (as we have done several times) – self-explanatory and quite, quite fascinating:

“My Sister has described locations of post-Reversal magnetic poles and the potential consequences of magnetic polar shifts on the Global Weather System.

“The ‘new’ Magnetic South Pole is due to be located off the north of Brazil. The new Magnetic North Pole is going to be located off the coast of Siberia (or in that area). This will bring about changes in climate. Our country (UK), for example, is going to experience tropical wet summers and bitterly cold winters. Frequent flooding will become commonplace. These changes will seem sudden and will bring about harsh changes as the planet and mankind adjust to those changes.”

As already stated, my knowledge of geomagnetism is basically rudimentary. I shan’t even attempt to explain the physics behind the dynamics – at least not until I have become eloquently conversant in the subject matter. I do, however, understand that the magnetosphere can enter a period of flux (or chaos) throughout the duration of the reversal. Poles can effectively ‘pop up’ all over the planet while the magnetosphere is undergoing its readjustments.
For the purpose of my Sister’s messages (and the time constraints concerned), I shall stick to what I have been able to establish in relation to the locations of future poles. Referring to the trusted Antipodes Equirectangular map once more, I have already spotted a possible complication with regard to the location of the new magnetic poles. The North of Brazil is not antipodean to Siberia. That is not to say that neither location could be exempt from being a new pole after the period of readjustment – just that they couldn’t be the yin to each other’s yang at the same time.

I shall cover the Siberian magnetic pole location first. For the sake of simplicity, I won’t include latitudinal and longitudinal coordinates, but will detail the locations as best I can. As southern and western Siberia are land-locked, they can be eliminated from further investigation. However, a vast expanse of coastal area remains for me to cover. Sandwiched between the north of Siberia and the Arctic Cape/Ocean are the East Siberia, Chukchi, Laptev and Kara Seas. Tucked between the Russian Kamchatkas and the eastern Siberian coastline is the Sea of Okhotsk. The Bering Sea kisses a small area of the eastern Siberian coastline also.
If the new Magnetic North Pole eventually settled within the northern Siberian seaboard, the new magnetic South Pole would logistically settle within the Southern Ocean, just beyond Queen Maud Land in Antarctica.
If the new Magnetic North Pole eventually settled within the eastern Siberian seaboard, the new Magnetic South Pole would fall into the Scotia Sea areas. To give one a good idea of the location, the Falklands Islands, South Georgia and South Sandwich Islands regions are served by the Scotia Sea.
My Sister stated that the new Magnetic South Pole would be situated off the coast of northern Brazil. As stated above, post-readjustment, this location could not co-exist with a Siberian-based Magnetic North Pole.
It has been easier researching the proposed location of the Magnetic South Pole. The Equatorial Northern Brazilian beaches are blessed by the waters of the North Atlantic Ocean. The antipodean region (i.e., the location of the new Magnetic North Pole) are the Equatorial Bismarck and Solomon Seas, located to the north of Papua New Guinea.”

Basically, this is the scenario I envisaged back in 2012 – Magnetic North Pole would ultimately be located in the Equatorial Bismarck and Solomon Seas region, with Magnetic South being located within the South Atlantic Anomaly, off the northern Brazilian coastline:

Of course, we have witnessed the genesis of considerable meteorological change over the past few years.  My Sister maintains that the changes are linked to the geomagnetic reversal, that there will be a period of harsh changes that we will need to adapt to.  And adapt we will.

To conclude this posting, it is safe to say that my feelings remain unchanged from my July 2014 missive…

My own conclusions and my own opinions? Mankind has almost certainly observed and experienced geomagnetic reversals during its long history of life on this amazing planet. Whilst scientists, geologists and many gifted researchers have gathered evidence aplenty of the geological effects of previous geomagnetic reversals, we have not yet experienced the actual phenomenon during the history of this particular civilisation. Every single piece of evidence uncovered goes towards slotting further pieces into the veritable jigsaw puzzle that is the true fullness of life on Earth. The old adage ‘hope for the best, prepare for the worst’ might be the approach of many.

The process of geomagnetic reversal is undoubtedly underway. Rather than fearing potential cataclysm, let’s embrace the opportunities to study the phenomenon, to detail its effects for future posterity. A great mystery to be solved, beautiful sights in the skies as colourful auroras blaze in their fullest glory. Hope for the best, prepare for the worst by all means… but never, ever fear the cycle of change.

Willow’s World… an Update

Godstone Views

Good afternoon from a blustery and chilly Surrey and hoping you’re all having a wonderful New Year thus far.

I would like to apologise for not having posted an update sooner. The absence of observational blogs from me has not been deliberate and I hope to redress this in the coming weeks. However, I will say this… this coming year will see changes.

Radio-microphone

Willow’s World
As you are all aware, I host my own show on what is undoubtedly the World’s largest listener-supported Radio Station, FreedomSlips Revolution Radio – and I remain as honoured, humbled and grateful now as I did when I first stepped tentatively into the world of broadcasting back on 12 September 2013. ‘Willow’s World’ is on air twice weekly – Mondays and Wednesdays, from Midnight until 2am EST (5am until 7am GMT) on Studio A – and covers not only current affairs but topics of an eclectic nature, being joined by wonderful friends during the morning’s journey. I am aiming to broaden those particular horizons over the coming months, perhaps dedicating one show a month to one of the subjects discussed with my Sister and Grandfather during our many conversations over the years. I would also like to explore the possibility of inviting a guest on to a couple of the shows each month. In fact, I already have a mental list of fascinating and inspiring people I would love to invite on to the show… we shall see 🙂

I will be working towards uploading recordings of ‘Willow’s World‘ onto my You Tube Channel over the coming weeks and shall share them here with you as soon as I can.

Antique Typewriter Keys

The Second Book
As you may remember from earlier blog postings, I had confided that I was facing a dilemma of sorts – whether to proceed with writing Book 2 or to allow Book 3 to take precedence. As hinted above, the changes that we are facing, or perhaps are arguably already experiencing, had led me to seriously lengthy ponderings as to which topics required the utmost prioritisation. After careful consideration and consultation with my Sister, I have decided that Book 2 – which is already two-thirds completed – will become the first to reach the typewritten finishing line. The focus of the book – The United States of America – remains unchanged.

The pages will detail the revelations provided by my Sister over the years – coup d’états concealed chillingly under the cloaks of assassinations, the changing climate which will begin to alter the country’s features once more, political skulduggery and her own explanation of what had really transpired on the day of September 11th, 2001. The book will be presented ‘as is’ – conversations interwoven with personal opinion, referencing research gleaned from many sources from the Web.

The United States of America has faced many metamorphoses over the centuries. Her beautiful landscapes are haunted by the ghosts of genocide, revolution, injustice and greed yet in spite of the trials she has faced, she retains her incredible, tenacious heart. My Sister has long voiced her admiration of the many beautiful souls who are proud to call America their home. She has long cautioned that the country is about to face its greatest challenge yet. In fact, it is coldly accurate to state that this particular war has already begun. The enemy of the people? Well… let’s just say it’s an inside job, shall we?

However, she has also voiced the drumbeat sounds of hope are becoming ever louder in the hearts of the many on American shores – good men and women awakening to the painful truth of what is happening to their country – good men and women who are not going to just sit back and watch everything fall apart. The main message of the book is exactly that – hope must never be abandoned and the strength and power of the human soul must never, ever be underestimated.

The Coming Year

“There’s a real shift going on now…
… I get a feeling that this year is going to be quite seismic in terms of the shift… the winds of change are almost becoming tornadic in strength. Could even be literal as well as metaphorical.
(Those with an agenda)… their game is almost up – and they know it.
We do have the chance to break this chain. A really strong chance of breaking it. Just got to remain focused.
… this change must happen… we’re not quite there but almost.”

These are paraphrased quotes of mine from a conversation with a dear friend earlier today. And yes… these changes MUST happen. My Grandfather and Sister have never once promised that these changes would be easy. Human beings are naturally resistant to change, especially those who have deluded themselves into believing that they have control over everything – and, in fact, it is THIS particular awakening which will be the most dangerous to us.

I shall conclude with quotes from my June 3rd 2014 posting, ‘We Are All Here Together For A Reason‘:

“We are undergoing many changes here on our beautiful Planet… a secret battle for the hearts and minds of humans, if you will. A battle for ultimate control, even. Individuals who have the chance to change everything for the better eschewing common sense and compassion for corporate empire-building, grabbing everything they can with hungry hands.

For those of us witnessing these shenanigans, life can be quite unpleasant at times. These so-called ‘paragons of virtue’ stripping good people of their livelihoods and dignity – just because they can – truly have no compassion. Playing games of ‘divide and conquer’, pushing their agenda of ‘master and servant’ further down the throats of people who just want to get on with their lives.

Before I reach the point that I’m going to reach, I’d like to identify whom I define as ‘the powers that think-they-are’. Political families and alleged bipartisan organisations, CEOs and heads of the mega-Banking conglomerates, the big corporations, the establishments behind the thrones, the Curia of the Vatican and their ilk in all organised religions, secret organisations. And also before I reach my point, I would also like to remind everyone that there are good people within any organisation. I would advise proceeding with extreme caution before tarring everyone with the same brush.

Something else these corrupt organisations have done is to corrupt verbal and written communication. For example, the meaning of the word ‘Apocalypse’. Excuse me for butting in but… I have a strong recollection that ‘Apocalypse’ means the ‘Great Awakening’. Many good people around our beautiful Planet have learned that the truth isn’t that which has been dictated almost verbatim in various educational establishments around the World, gleaned from history books edited and written by the victors of bloody wars. As my Sister commented many years ago, ‘everything you have been taught at School is wrong‘. The only thing I have to say to those who believe they wield total control over all – self-delusion is a terrible thing. Are you so totally blinded by power and control that you cannot see that, perhaps, the biggest delusion is that you have control at all? Have you not ever considered once in the past couple of thousand years or longer that you never have had control in the first place?”

“We are all here at the right time, where we are supposed to be for what is about to occur which, although initially appears daunting to even the strongest of souls, will eventually settle into something so, so beautiful. We agreed to be here, our souls open to experiencing the rollercoaster ride that is this time on our beautiful Planet. And Gaia is beautiful, perfect in every single way… she just happens to have a few guests who are what could be perceived as unruly and ungracious in many ways.

I tend to look at mistakes in a different way – yes, we do learn from what we perceive as mistakes (and, let’s face it, how many of us here have been warned in advance to avoid taking certain routes, only to ignore those warnings and finding ourselves facepalming at the outcome). We learn from experiences that were always going to challenge us in one form or another. This was all planned many years ago.. so much further back than the human mind can comprehend although only moments ago from the perspective of the Higher Beings (the Collective?).

More importantly, we have all found each other at the right time. I’ve lost count of the amount of synchronicities in my life recently, meeting people I have known in previous lives in different bodies, finding the comforting arms of kindred spirits that reach out to surround us with their love from wherever they are around Gaia’s beautiful lands.”

And finally…

“As for those fleeing to their underground hideaways… well, as Sis says.. ‘last place anyone would want to be when the time comes’. Far safer above ground… far, far safer.

She has assured me that there is hope and has implored that we should never give up hope. The birth of something beautiful, something new is always preceded by pain. We must not fear this change.

And we must never give up on love…”

The Next Level with Ace and Aurora (25 January 2014)

Fantastic Landscape Good evening from the waterlogged but still wonderful county of Surrey.

It’s been a busy but enormously enjoyable few weeks. On 25 January 2014, I was honoured and humbled to be invited to join two of my fellow hosts/producers on the second edition of their new FreedomSlips Revolution Radio show. Susan and Aurora Light-Sky host ‘The Next Level‘, which airs each Saturday at Midnight EST on the Station’s Studio B.

We chatted about a variety of topics, ranging from Earth and Solar System changes, The Electric Universe Theory, Near-Death Experiences, my appreciation of the BBC’s time travelling show ‘Doctor Who’ and also my Blogging here on WordPress.

We also discussed my maiden book ‘A Journey Into The Mysteries of Life (Book 1: The End of the Beginning)‘, – which details my early life, paranormal experiences, the lives of my Sister and Grandfather and the genesis of the communications that began from beyond the grave over 18 years ago.

Susan and Aurora are delightful hosts, immensely enjoyable company and two beautiful souls who I am honoured to know as my friends. We thoroughly enjoyed chatting on the Show – and I am delighted to share the show with you today…

(With many thanks to Susan and Aurora, who can also be found on their Blog, ‘The Next Level with Ace and Aurora‘. I would also like to thank Mike Ringley, the founder of FreedomSlips Revolution Radio, for just being his incredible self – and also to all of my friends at the Station. Thank you One and All 🙂 )

Floods, Writing and a Change of Days

_72012258_72012253

Good evening from a very blustery and soggy Surrey. As I type, the rain has started to fall once more in our little area of the United Kingdom and the Environment Agency has issued Flood Alerts for various Surrey rivers once more. Our area was sorely affected by the Christmas 2013 flooding and whilst our house escaped the worst of the flooding, we certainly had to shore up defences with sandbags just in case. Christmas Day saw our local rivers bursting their banks. Floodwater moves silently but quickly. By the time the Doctor Who Christmas Special aired on TV, approximately three quarters of our rear garden was resting underwater. Drains already brimming with excess water could no longer cope, rendering most of our road’s toilets unusable. Yet there was something the flooding couldn’t dampen… the spirit of Christmas camaraderie amongst neighbours, all of us making sure each family was safe and well. I’d also like to thank all the workers who gave up their Christmas celebrations to help everyone affected by the flooding – all the Council workmen who handed out sandbags by the hundreds on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and Boxing Day, the Water Authorities who battled the elements as best they could… there are so many of you that I just want to express gratitude to. You will always be appreciated – thank you.

write-a-book

I am still busily writing the second book of ‘The Journey‘ series. The direction of the book has taken a radical change in direction, veering from the originally proposed subject matter (Earth Changes) onto totally unexpected carriageways. I have made good progress thus far, breaking for a Christmas hiatus of sorts. The Journey will resume its written course upon a return to normal routines next week.

Radio-microphone

Also returning to a regular timeslot after the Christmas and New Year break is my Open Roundtable on the incredible FreedomSlips Revolution Radio Station. The show has now moved to Wednesdays, Midnight EST (US), 5am GMT on Studio A and you are all welcome to join me. Any concerns about global political situations? Want to chat about paranormal experiences? Or would you like to chat about matters close to your heart? Wander over to FreedomSlips.com, join us in our vibrant chatroom and give me a call.

Thoughts About The Afterlife: Part Three

Good afternoon from my beautiful home county of Surrey.

Towards the end of April, I posted the second section of my thoughts on Near-Death Experiences and the Afterlife. I shared my own Near-Death Experience with you, disclosing that I felt uncertain as to whether the experience could be classed as a ‘conventional’ example of the Phenomenon. Yet it was a beautiful experience that one struggles to find the words to describe. In all honesty, I am uncertain as to whether words could amply describe the glorious depths and sheer beauty of the event.

My Sister has blessed me with her insights into life after passing from this Earthly realm… familiar aspects to those who have experienced the truly remarkable phenomenon that is the Near-Death Experience.

The following is the final excerpt from Chapter 13 of ‘The Journey: Book One – The End of the Beginning‘(*1)

LEAVING THE PHYSICAL PLANE (Part Three): “We All Have A Purpose – A Job of Work To Do

I really consider myself lucky, you know. I have seen The Other Side… and hadn’t even been close to death at the time. It is a beautiful place – so beautiful that finding the words to describe its sheer perfection is nigh-on impossible. The Sun is always shining. Flowers are always blooming. Heaven, if you wish to give the dimension a name, is peaceful, joyful, free of pain and suffering. Every soul has everything they need as opposed to everything they want. Heaven, however, is also a place of learning.

The rules are a lot more strict here. Every soul has everything they need as opposed to having every wish granted for them. Every soul has a job of work to do. Every soul that passes has a purpose. I help teenage souls, those passing from cancer, to accept their passing. This role begins prior to their passing.

I frequently return to the (name withheld) ward. I’m pleased to see they have a Teenage Cancer Ward there now. I am frequently seen by teenagers who are close to their passing. Spiritual counsel begins in earnest at this time.

There are interesting, if not identical parallels, between my Sister’s descriptions of life on The Other Side, their soul development roles, etc., and accounts raised by NDE survivors. I have also read absorbing information about the past-life regression studies undertaken by hypnotist, Dr. Michael Newton. The overwhelming consistency given by each of the 29 case studies in question has led Dr. Newton to conclude that their experiences are recollections were genuine.

Of all the Newton study observations, the description of ‘The Council of Elders‘ positively leapt out of the screen at me. Grandfather and my Sister have often stated that The Other Side is under the control of a collective, as opposed to a singular higher intelligence. ‘The Council‘ are not judgemental beings nor do they impose punishments on any soul. Their function seems to be that of benevolent guides, aiding the Soul’s further development prior to their return to soul groupings. They may have an interesting connection to another surprising group, which I relate in a later book in this Series.

Untitled 1

It is not unusual to learn that loved ones take on such roles upon passing over to The Other Side. I have read many accounts of souls focusing particular attention on caring for children who pass away before parents – or those who have no particular soul to return home to.

That souls choose to be of service to those on their return journey from Earth, especially for those requiring healing because of their life experiences, is of no surprise to me. I have studied many accounts on various websites over the past few months and all carry a consistent message. They can choose to guide souls back on the Earth plane or help souls who had passed traumatically to become acclimatised to life on the spiritual plane. The general consensus and/or message, as my Sister (and many others) say, that there is always a job of work to be done, always someone to help.

I had known of my Sister’s new vocation many years ago. A marvellous Spiritual Worker and Healer was helping me through the health problems that were plaguing me after the birth of my Youngest Daughter. During the course of my healing sessions, my Sister had introduced herself to him. She had explained to him that she was helping people on Earth who were facing death from cancer – as she herself had done 4/5 years before at that stage. She has since expanded further just what her role entails. She has described the loneliness and fear that smothered her prior to her passing. She was frequently placed in wards with people older than she was. She lay alone in the darkness, listening to the sounds of death almost every single night. There was no one of her age to talk to, no escape from the negativity. She was determined that no other teenager or young adult should endure that pit of loneliness – and so has returned to help them in their direst moments of need. She is extremely proud of her work and her role is one that is particularly rewarding to her.

It comes as no surprise to me that my Sister should choose to return to the hospital she so despised prior to her passing. Forgiveness happened very soon after she had passed away. She had determined her new role within an Earthly year of her passing. What I have found interesting is my Sister’s assertion that the young adults are able to see my Sister during the weeks prior to their passing. “Oh, I’m seen by staff there…“, she chuckled. In my mind’s eye, I could even see her smiling mischievously as she manifested her ghostly form in front of terrified staff.

I knew that a new ward was being built to replace the cramped old wing my Sister lived in during her final months of life but I didn’t know about the Teenage Cancer Ward that had been installed within that new wing. You know what though? I checked the hospital’s website. I shall refrain from naming the hospital concerned but I will say that my Sister is absolutely right. The hospital has a state-of-the-art ward for 16-24 olds, funded by the wonderful Teenage Cancer Trust Charity. “It’s lovely!“, she beams. “Glad they have it now…

Good evening from a beautiful Surrey.

12 days ago, I began posting about the Near Death Experience phenomenon. I mentioned the Near Death Experience of Mary Jo Rapini and provided links to the amazing research undertaken by Near Death Experience Research Foundation co-founder, Dr. Jeffery Long. I shared my Sister’s description of the moments experienced immediately after releasing one’s connections with the mortal body. I began to disclose that I, too, had experienced what could be classed as a Near Death Experience and promised to share this experience with you.

The following is a continuation excerpt from Chapter 13 of The Journey’s Book One, ‘The End of the Beginning’

LEAVING THE PHYSICAL PLANE (Part Two)

“In the months following my Sister’s passing, I suffered a resurgence of the asthma that blighted my early childhood. Inhaled asthma medication was not as effective as it had been in the past. Such was the severity of the resurgence, the family doctor decided on a more extreme course of action, prescribing steroid medication by the name of prednisolone. A month’s worth of tablets was duly dished out. The daily dosage was set and I was asked to return once I had finished taking the course.

Curiously, during the final months of her life, my Sister had also been taking the same medication. Prednisolone was, at that stage, routinely prescribed to cancer patients, to counter the more dramatic side effects of chemotherapy or radiotherapy. The body’s immune system is severely compromised during cancer treatment. The patient’s appetite is also severely impaired. Prednisolone serves a dual purpose in this regard – taking on the role as the body’s artificial immune system and boosting the patient’s flagging appetite. Gradual withdrawal from the medication is a necessity and the process of withdrawal is applied with great caution.

Coming to the end of my prescription, I was aware that I couldn’t just stop taking the tablets. In retrospect, I should have called my GP for further advice but, being the somewhat strong-willed woman that I am, opted to control my own withdrawal from the medication. I reduced my twelve-a-day dose by half, to six-a-day. I had three days supply left and I stubbornly reasoned that three days would allow me sufficient time to withdraw safely from the medication. My stubbornness was almost my undoing.

Within 24 hours of reducing the dose, I was plagued by severe bouts of perspiration and palpitations. I was also overwhelmed by panic attacks. The asthma, the severity of which had receded at that point, was poking its head over the parapet once more. That evening, I felt so unwell, I had to leave work early.

During the early stages of the fifteen minute bus journey back to the village, I began to suffer an asthma attack. I reacted the way I had done since childhood – reached into my bag, pulled out the inhaler – just followed the normal procedure. The effectiveness of the medication was, quite frankly, almost completely useless. However, the medication offered enough of a respite for me to manage the walk from the village bus stop to my home, a ten minute walk away. Upon arrival at home, I was together enough to wheeze to my former partner that I was suffering from an asthma attack. I told him that I felt tired and desperately needed to sleep.

I fell asleep as soon as my body sunk into the sofa. I’m normally aware of my surroundings and the level of quality of sleep. This sleep, however, was different… very different. I was alert, more alert than I had ever felt before. Blanketed by a grey cloud which was rapidly metamorphosing into a rotational cylindrical shape, the sound of a rhythmic drumbeat filled the air. The tunnel walls darkened, becoming opaque in appearance. Sparkling stars of brilliant light began to glimmer through the walls. It was, without doubt, an amazing sight.

Flat-line

I felt alert, the most alert I had ever been in my entire life. The drumming, which had been increasing in volume over what seemed like many minutes, finally ceased. A quiet voice spoke within me. The voice told me I was dead. The tunnel brightened ahead of me. Fear was not the overriding emotion I felt at this stage. I felt safe – I was going home. Whilst I was standing in this beautiful secure cocoon, I became aware of a distant ringing sound. The ringing become louder… louder…

… I was jolted back to life by the sound. “That was weird…“, my former partner voiced quizzically. “No one was on the other end.” He placed the telephone back on the charger. Confused, I asked him what time it was. Only 10 minutes had passed since I had first stepped foot past the front door.

I told him what I had just experienced and his face turned ghostly white. He strongly felt the ‘phone call was from my Sister. Over the following days, my former partner contacted his sister – a qualified former nurse who had attained the level of matron prior to retiring to raise her children. Upon learning of the events prior to my experience, she explained that steroid withdrawal needed to be tapered with the utmost of care. My body was reacting from the withdrawal. Had I stopped taking the tablets completely, she explained, I would have entered renal failure, leading to certain death. She was completely surprised that we hadn’t needed to call an ambulance afterwards.

Would I say I had a Near Death Experience? I’m not really sure. All I can say with total certainty is that the experience was not frightening in any way. This had happened long before the dream visitation from my Grandfather, during which he had complained that he found the experience of passing from his old style of life to the new style of life as being too easy. Perhaps that’s why I chuckled when my Grandfather complained about that moment. I already knew he was right…”

My Sister has blessed me with her insights into life beyond the Earthly realm. What she has shared with me tallies uncannily with the wealth of information shared by many NDE Experiencers – offering intriguing parallels which shall be contemplated further in Part Three.

Thoughts About The Afterlife: Part One

Good afternoon from a spry and sunny Surrey.
Yesterday was one of my studious days. Revisiting notes of conversations with my Grandfather and Sister, reading some astonishing links attached to the absorbing tweets of my Twitter friends. It is with grateful thanks to one of those very friends that I chanced upon this news article, published on NBCNews’ Today.com website:

Doctor claims he has evidence of the afterlife.

The article covers the fascinating recollections of Mary Jo Rapini, who experienced her own Near Death Experience (NDE) after suffering an aneurysm during a gym session in 2003. Ms. Rapini’s case was one of the many cases meticulously researched by oncologist Dr. Jeffery Long. Dr. Long is also the author of ‘Evidence of the Afterlife: The Science of Near Death Experiences’ and the Co-Founder of the Near Death Experience Research Foundation.

Studying the Near Death Experience has been an interest of mine for well over 20 years. With the maturing advance of middle-age, one has broadened my interest in the mechanics of the Near Death Experience – focusing on the scientifics as well as the esoterics of the event, so to speak. My conclusions at this stage? Well.. each time one thinks one has found a solution, another question pops up to fill the void of what one supposed was a resolved issue.

The topic is one I have discussed with my Grandfather and Sister; their responses, whilst not lavishly detailed at this stage, have indicated that the process varies with each individual case. For example, my Sister has stated that the Near Death Experience of, say, a person suffering a heart attack is different from a person who has suffered an aneurysm, purely by the body’s physiological responses/defences during the actual event. She has remarked that Science doesn’t answer every question. Yet my Sister has also strongly asserted that scientific research should not be eschewed purely on the basis of the findings not quite tallying with a particular personal paradigm. ‘Nothing should be ignored..’, she says.

LEAVING THE PHYSICAL PLANE
My Grandfather and Sister broached the topic of the ‘first steps’ taken after leaving one’s physical body. Those tentative steps are discussed in ‘The End of the Beginning’. The following is an excerpt from Chapter 13’s ‘Leaving The Physical Plane’ (*1) – and offers a few morsels for thought.

“What happens after a soul has reached the end of their Earthly journey? Death is an illusion, that much has been said by Grandfather and my Sister. Grandfather has described the physical parting from the body as being ‘too easy‘. My Sister’s initial reaction to her passing was one of anger. It didn’t matter that her previous incarnations had all passed prematurely. Not only had she existed during the late 1800s/early 1900s as a young seamstress, she had also lived a life as a young soul during World War 2. Her (his) life journey ended when she (he) was 7 years old. It didn’t matter that she had already known she was going to pass at the age of 21. She had known this before her soul was absorbed into her developing body back in the early 1970s. Her attitude towards death had become humanised. “Conditioning…”, I can hear her saying now, “I was the ghost in the machine before I passed away.”

“When a soul leaves the body, you enter a tunnel. This tunnel is sometimes known as a portal. Actually, it’s the same as a black hole and the soul comes out safely on the other side. The journey is very rapid – takes only seconds of Earthly time. Once you leave the exit, you are in another universe or dimension. Consider though that the soul is an ephemeral being. No atoms exist to tear apart.”

Whilst my Sister was certainly describing the first steps taken by a soul after the moment of death, these steps are also related by people who have undergone the phenomenon known as Near-Death Experience. I have personally experienced aspects of this unusual journey. Grandfather’s dream-world visitation to me was certainly not the first time I had seen the tunnel and experienced its unusual effects on time…”

I have experienced what could be determined as a Near Death Experience. Although I have described the known event in the book, I shall happily share this experience in Part Two. Whilst one cannot guarantee any solution (and actually, it is probable that the existence of life after death shall remain one of the ‘unanswered questions’ for the foreseeable future), I shall expand upon Chapter 13’s contemplations on a phenomenon which, ultimately, changes the life of the experiencer forever…
