The book is a case of unexplained phenomena, including chemical evidence, that is an ultimate challenge to scientifically-minded skeptics. Forrest J Ackerman (1916-2008) was a world famous futurist, author and a pioneering promoter of science fiction books and films.

As an atheist, Mr. Ackerman did not believe in life after death. However, he promised friends that if he were wrong, he would try to drop them a line. The is the unabridged true story of precisely what happened. For over six years, data has accumulated that Mr. Ackerman continues to communicate, with over 100 incidents that include physical chemical evidence studied at two universities. This has left top science professors in fields from chemistry to psychology completely baffled, and in some cases, plagued by unexplainable incidents themselves.

The book includes Paul Davids’ sworn personal testimony and incredible story of bizarre contacts from the mentor whose deep friendship he valued for half a century It also includes in-depth chemical analysis (a 3 year study) of an extraordinarily mysterious ink and ink message that continues to mystify scientists, and also studies from state of the art sensors used with computer software, apparently successfully, to attempt getting responses from spirits, including the late Mr. Ackerman.

This is a companion work to Mr. Davids’ feature documentary from NBC Universal called “THE LIFE AFTER DEATH PROJECT,” but a previous viewing of the film is not essential, and the book certainly stands alone.

PAUL DAVIDS is an author, artist and director, who has produced films that include Marilyn Monroe Declassified (2016), NBCUniversal s Jesus in India (2007) and The Sci-Fi Boys (2006), and Showtime s Roswell (1994).

He co-authored six books of the Star Wars saga with his wife, Hollace Davids, for Lucasfilm.

He is a Princeton Psychology graduate. His uncanny experiences of phenomena related to Mr. Ackerman are the subject of the film, The Life After Death Project (2013).

An Atheist in Heaven is about this extraordinary case of afterlife communication, and Mr. Davids has signed a sworn affidavit certifying that it is all true.

DR. GARY E. SCHWARTZ
has a Ph.D. from Harvard University, was a tenured Professor at Yale University, and he has long been Professor of Psychology, Medicine, Neurology, Psychiatry and Surgery at the University of Arizona.

As the Director of the university’s Laboratory for Advances in Consciousness and Health, he has conducted afterlife research for over 15 years. He has published hundreds of scientific papers, and authored books that include The Sacred Promise, The Truth About Medium, The G.O.D. Experiments and The Afterlife Experiments. He is a Fellow of the American Psychological Association as well as the Academy of Behavioral Medicine Research.

Paul Davids | A Case Study Of After Death Contact w/ Forrest J. Ackerman

Published on May 31, 2016

Life after death: No one really knows what happens. Do we go off “toward the light”? Do we simply cease to exist? The most common atheistic view is that we are gone and no longer exist at all. Today’s guest, however, has some insights gleaned from his encounters with his late friend, Forrest J. Ackerman, after Forrest’s death. Though Forrest was a staunch atheist, he made the promise to try to communicate from beyond if it was possible, and Paul Davids asserts that not only has it been possible, but Forrest has been communicating with him and others quite a bit since his death.

Paul is a filmmaker, author, producer, and communicator with those who have passed on. He was the production coordinator of the original Transformers television show, and has since written six Star Wars sequels with his wife, Hollace, and is a prolific artist. His works have been sold all over the world. Today he is speaking to us about his book, An Atheist in Heaven, and his experiences communicating with Forrest J. Ackerman.

Some of the topics that you’ll hear about include:

19:30: The case that changed the way Paul thought about communicating with the dead. Dorothy Allison, a psychic medium, was able to tell a pair of distraught parents where they could find their daughter’s body after the teenager had been murdered.

24:00: Paul’s first direct experience with the dead, which was when he was first contacted by his late friend, Forrest J. Ackerman.

33:15: The story of the “Inkblot Obliteration,” the first and most compelling piece of evidence that Forrest was reaching out from the other side. Paul tells of the circumstances, what happened, and how he knew without a doubt that it was indeed Forrest attempting to reach him.

43:00: How Forrest’s friend, Joe Moe, who was also an atheist and a skeptic, had an experience that led him to believe that Forrest had returned from the dead to thank him. This occurrence also put the inkblot obliteration incident in perspective.

45:30: What happened when Jay Siegel, one of the most important chemists in the USA and the chair chemist at Indiana University, ran tests on the inkblots and tried to categorize the ink: It turned out that the ink used wasn’t anything used in modern times, but it did have properties of inks used a century ago.

48:15: Some of the rules of engagement and limitations of contacting and communicating with those who have passed on.

54:00: How Forrest reached out yet again by creating a typographical error in an already-edited article, The Strange Case of Forrest J. Ackerman, that referenced the inkblot obliteration incident.

An Atheist in Heaven with Paul Davids

Near-death experiences (NDEs) are common, well-documented, and similar across cultures throughout the world. Current estimates are that between 4 and 15 percent of the world’s population have had an NDE. Some of the fascination with NDEs comes from the fact that they often result in great leaps in personal growth. These leaps are characterized by the loss of the fear of death, the healing of deep hurts, an increase in self-esteem and compassion for others, a sense of union with all things, and a clearer sense of how to fulfill one’s purpose in life.

This is a book that teaches readers how to reap the benefits of NDEs without having to experience trauma. In the course of their many workshops around the world, the authors have discovered that when one immerses oneself in accounts of NDEs, one can experience love, hope, healing, and a sense of purpose.

This is the only book that systematically encourages the reader to create a spiritual and psychological healing practice based on NDEs. Each chapter includes an account of a fascinating NDE, followed by a series of questions, meditations, exercises, and video links. The reader is encouraged to contemplate these stories and their own lives. It is truly a profound guide to both living and dying.

Sheila Fabricant Linn, Dennis Linn, and Matt Linn work together as a team, integrating physical, emotional, and spiritual wholeness. They have taught courses on processes for healing around the world. They are the authors of 23 books, including 2 books for children and those who care for them. These books have sold over a million copies in English and have been translated into more than 20 languages. Dennis and Sheila live in Colorado with their son, John. Matt lives in a Jesuit community in Minnesota.

A rare glimpse into heaven, hell, and previous lives—Dr. Rajiv Parti’s near-death experience brought him on a journey through the afterworld, leading to a spiritual awakening that transformed his career, his lifestyle, and even his fundamental beliefs.

Before his near-death experience, Dr. Rajiv Parti was a wealthy man of science with a successful career as the Chief of Anesthesiology at the Bakersfield Heart Hospital in California. He demanded the same success from his son, whose failures provoked episodes of physical abuse from Dr. Parti. All in all, Dr. Parti was the last man to believe in heaven or hell—that is, until he saw them with his own eyes.

When Dr. Parti had his near-death experience on the operating table, he first watched his own operation from the ceiling—even recalling a joke told by his doctors during his surgery. He was greeted by archangels and his deceased father who led him through the tortures of hell and revealed the toxic cycle of violence that has plagued his family for generations. He even reviewed the struggles of his previous lives which, in many ways, reflected those he still faced in the present. Finally, he experienced heaven. From the angels, he learned lessons of spiritual health that they insisted he bring down to earth—to do so, Dr. Parti knew he had to change his ways.

After his near-death experience, Dr. Parti awoke a new man. He gave away his mansion, quit his career, opened a wellness clinic, and completely turned around his relationships with his family. To this day, he still converses with angels and spreads their wisdom to the living.

In this remarkable true story of spiritual transformation, Dr. Parti provides rare details of heaven, hell, the afterlife, and angels. In sharing the lessons and eternal truths from the Divine that changed him forever, Dr. Parti offers his audience the opportunity to attain peace and live a better life here on Earth.

Rajiv Parti, MD, is a world-renowned specialist in pain management with over thirty years as a cardiac anesthesiologist. In addition to being Chief of Anesthesiology at Bakersfield Heart Hospital for more than a decade, Dr. Parti is founder of the Pain Management Institute of California. Dr. Parti’s study in complementary and alternative medicine has led him to formulate an integrative approach to total wellness, especially pain management, stress, and depression. He tours the country extensively, holding workshops to demonstrate methods of healing to help others overcome addiction, depression, chronic pain, and even cancer.

In this compelling memoir, Hannah Robinson relates how she was injured in an accident while on holiday in Tenerife, sustaining life-threatening multiple injuries. While still “unconscious” she entered a “near-death experience”, where she experienced true peace and love. She also received the information she needed to come to terms with the biggest, negative issue she would continue to face; the life-long rejection and enforced secrecy of her father, a Catholic priest.

While healing in hospital and at home, Hannah started to understand how her father’s actions and her near-death experience were inextricably linked; that they’d both occurred at all was more than just coincidence. Within these pages, Hannah shares many of the stages of her life-transforming journey, both wonderful and excruciating, that have brought her to a deeper understanding of how and why this all happened. Increasingly struck by the contrast between her own spiritual experience and her treatment by the Catholic Church, Hannah examines the relationship between organised religion and near-death experiences and makes a good argument for love being the most emotionally, spiritually and psychologically healing power there is; one that transcends human belief systems and ultimately unites us all as one.


Hannah Robinson was born in London and now lives in Buckinghamshire. UK. She gained a Masters degree from the Courtauld Institute of Art, London, before teaching art in secondary schools for twelve years. She is deeply interested in spirituality and consciousness and supports Coping International, an organisation set up to help the children of Catholic priests.

Avenues of the Human Spirit takes us on a compelling journey through many life-changing experiences towards a greater sense of spiritual fulfillment. Genuine life changing experiences such as perceptions through time, out-of-body experiences and a profound spiritual awakening illustrate how the author reached a philosophy of benevolence and freedom that we too can draw upon in our everyday lives.

These Avenues of the Human Spirit are the ecstatic changes we can experience beyond our bodies, in deep meditation or removed from the everyday world in nature, but they are also the everyday choices we make that define our world. The author’s spiritual awareness has also grown from an understanding of the spectrum of human experience, from the harsher sides of his childhood in working class London to the joys of spiritual exploration. The result of these combined perceptions is what makes Avenues of the Human Spirit a unique and life-affirming book.
Graham Nicholls – Navigating the Out Of Body Experience: Part One

Graham returns for a 2nd show to discuss his debut book, Avenues of the Human Spirit published by O Books. Graham shares his journey growing up as young boy in London where the real threat of constant violence was never too far away. At this time he was also having many vivid precognitive out-of-body experiences. Graham is now using his own journey to recognise the different paths one can take given the experiences and influences we are subjected to.

Graham Nicholls Interview 2010 – Spiritual Lounge
An interview with Dhara Kothari of Spiritual Lounge Magazine

What does spirituality mean to you?

Spirituality for me means a process of growth towards greater awareness of our interconnectedness to all people and life, a liberating awareness or truth. It is about dissolving the beliefs that divide and limit. Like the scientific method, spirituality in my approach is about tuning our perceptions so that we can see things as they really are. This often means giving up long held assumptions and going it alone outside of the security of religious dogma or mainstream society, which can be scary for people but I believe it is the only way to experience true liberation.

You have had many life changing experiences, can you talk about some of them?

I would say that there have been four main stages in my life in which I was transformed in some way spiritually. The first took place when I was a small boy. I awoke in the middle of the night and walked into the hallway outside my bedroom. As I did I encountered a tall figure standing at the doorway to the apartment. Not surprisingly I was terrified, especially as I could not have been more than six or seven years old. The figure just stood there looking at me with an intensity that I have never experienced since. It is not an exaggeration to say that that night changed the direction of my life and opened me to the possibility of other levels of reality.

The second major shift took place when I was around twelve. I began to have fleeting out-of-body experiences (OBEs). They didn’t last more than a few moments at that point but they again focused me on the idea of another aspect to the universe. So around a year later I bought a book on OBEs from a local bookshop and began experimenting with inducing the experience intentionally. It took me six months but I then experienced a jolt shoot through my body before I found myself floating in the air looking at an almost foreign vision of myself lying below. Energy seemed to pulse in every direction and the room seemed lit from a radiant light emanating from my floating form. I remained there rotating for a minute or two before I sensed the soft texture of the bed again and opened my eyes to see the moving shadows from the traffic outside subtlety cascading across the ceiling.

There was no turning back after that, my OBEs began to take place on a regular basis and I started researching all I could on the topic. I took up various spiritual disciplines from meditation to committing to abstain from alcohol, recreational drugs and meat. To this day I have never gone back on these commitments and have never drunk alcohol, smoked or taken drugs. I have not eaten meat for nearly twenty years now and I’m now a vegan.

Essentially my OBEs opened up my world and initiated me into a spiritual understanding of life that has defined me since that time. They also led to the next shift in my awareness that took place in 1999. I had arranged to run a workshop with a few friends on some new techniques and ideas. We had booked a space under a railway bridge, as it was cheap and very spacious. I spent the first part of the meeting going through a breathing technique I had developed that I nicknamed the G-Technique as it drew upon a process used by pilots to help them deal with G-force during their training. It was a very powerful approach and within minutes of working with it I experienced the most powerful OBE in my life so far.

I found myself standing on a London street watching the people passing by with the normal energy and life you might expect of a large city. Then, as I watched, an explosion seemed to burst out onto the street leaving broken glass and people running. Emotion seemed to hit me as if it was a tangible physical force. It was like nothing else I’d ever experienced. Once it was over and I was back in my body I had a sense that this was something going to happen in the future and sure enough five days later a bombing did take place in Soho on the same street I had seen it happen in the OBE.

This precognitive aspect to my experiences was only to become more prominent as I was also to witness the Aldgate East bombing that took place in London in 2005 long before it actually happened. But in-between these two events I was to have probably the most personally powerful and transformative experience in my life.

I was away on holiday in Sardinia, an Island off the coast of Italy, when because of a series of chance events I had no money left for the trip except a few pounds to cover very basic food requirements. The result was the holiday became a kind of retreat and I spent my time practicing a form of Zazen meditation and reading. After several days of this I lay on my bed and experienced a sense of liberation. It is very hard to describe, but in a subtle moment I felt as if the universe touched a part of me and transformed me. It was like seeing my life replayed but without fear, only compassion and peace. That day put in motion the process that led me to write my first book and to found the Shahmai Network.

Tell us something about your professional work and how it has helped you spiritually?

Well I’ve always been a person who is inspired by many diverse areas, so I suppose my professional work as an artist, writer and activist allows me to share my understandings with others and also to explore in a deeper way what my life means. Art, especially contemporary art affords a level of freedom that few other areas do. I also always wanted to immerse people in an experience that they might never have in another context. Art allowed me to build and exhibit complex environments that I designed to take people on a meditational journey deep within themselves. I also try to offer guidance and healing to people through my various workshops, courses, retreats and one-on-one sessions. This is a really satisfying way of working for me as I can see directly the impact that my approaches have, which are often very transformative for the people involved.

You are the founder of Shahmai Network, can you tell us more about it?

The network was envisioned mainly as a focal point for my activism, a way of reaching others who support my vision and understanding of the world; with the ultimate goal of putting something positive and life affirming out into society. Our first undertaking in this direction was to become members of the Make Poverty History coalition back in 2004. It underlined to me the importance of working not just for personal growth, but for a fairer more equal world. Spirituality when it is divorced from compassion or a real focus on others is not fully realised in my understanding.

Since the end of the MPH campaign in 2005 I have focused on three slightly diverse areas, these being poverty, animal rights and personal rights such as relationships free from state limitations. These are all areas that I see as causing great suffering. I hope to expand the network as more people become aware of what I do with the goal of making lasting change in the world.

What have you learnt about the scientific understanding of consciousness?

Well I have always been fascinated by science, especially areas like parapsychology that seek to answer some of the greatest questions in human experience. Do we survive physical death? What are the boundaries of consciousness? etc etc. So my understanding of consciousness is constantly evolving. Part of me feels that consciousness may be illusory in the sense that it may not really be a consistent whole in the way we experience it. This is because the brain fills in the gaps left open by our senses giving rise to the ‘stream of consciousness’ we experience. This is interesting to me as if it is true that the brain completes the process of sensory perception, what would it look like if the mind was extended beyond the brain or if we could project our awareness to another place such as in remote viewing or an OBE? It seems to me that what we experience in psychical perceptions would appear fragmentary without the filling in process of the brain, we would also expect that we might not have the references of full memory or emotional context. As far as I can tell so far in my understanding psi perceptions do seem to match very well with this hypothesis.

In order to explore these areas more I have worked with Rupert Sheldrake, a biologist and psi researcher, in a series of telepathy experiments and I also support his work challenging the limited perspectives of many sceptics. Sheldrake believes that the brain might be more like a receiver and that our mind might be extended via a morphic field. This idea of the brain being more like a receiver is also popular with scientists researching near-death experiences. For example NDE researchers Pim Van Lommel and Penny Sartori have both put across this kind of understanding, as has Dean Radin a prolific researcher into psi.

Tell us more about your out of body experiences?

This could fill several books as I have now had hundreds of OBEs over some 23 years (as of October 2010). But what I can say is they have allowed me to travel to locations across the world and even to look down at the planet from the upper atmosphere. I have been able to explore the nature of consciousness directly without appeal to theory or dogma. That is the real value of these states of being, they offer us access to non-physical reality and let as ask questions about our spiritual nature. When I induced my first OBE at a teenager I simply wanted to experience something incredible, something life-affirming and that is exactly what happened. I entered a world of exploration and expanded my world view in ways I could never have imagined at the time.

How has astral projection helped you and in what way?

Astral projection is the term favoured in various esoteric traditions, many of which draw their ideas from Theosophy and western occultism, as someone focused on a more scientific approach I tend to use the term out-of-body experience. My OBEs have opened me to everything I now value in my life really. It is no exaggeration to say beginning to explore my OBEs made me look at the world with new eyes and begin to understand that there is more to this world than I ever imagined. I began to learn and educate myself in areas that I literally didn’t know existed before this shift in consciousness. Science, religion, philosophy, poetry and literature all became areas of fascination for me as a result of the desire for knowledge that arose from being awakened to psychical and spiritual potential.

You organize retreats, what do they consist off?

Yes, I run retreats that are focused on personal growth and spirituality as well as teaching approaches to help people have out-of-body experiences for themselves. My workshops usually consist of a one or two day event in which I guide people through a step-by-step process working with their strengths as well as limitations. When the group is focused on out-of-body experiences I use a wide range of approaches including my immersive technology, which I’ve developed since the late 1990s. I realised that most of the techniques for inducing OBEs were very generic and not based on the individual involved, so I started to develop a system that takes into account the psychology and particular strengths of the person I’m teaching. I then realised that most of the traditional techniques used only visualisations, which seemed limiting when we have all the other senses and the possibility to immerse ourselves in a compete sensory experience. I also draw on a much more scientific approach than anyone else I’m aware of, this helps to identify the approaches that are most likely to work drawn from the evidence in parapsychology.
I want people to walk away from my workshops and retreats with a sense that they have made a change, a real breakthrough. That’s my job in a way as the facilitator really, to take someone who is open to explore and grow and offer a genuine and personal teaching that lets them find the resources within the core of themselves.

Tell us more about your first book Avenues of the Human Spirit that is soon going to be published?

Avenues of the Human Spirit is a poetic journey through my experiences since my early childhood. But more than that it is an exploration of how they have transformed me and led me to a spiritual world view based upon direct experience, compassion and awareness. It was a very hard book to write and took me deep into myself and challenged me in ways that I could not have imagined. It even took me into the harsher sides of growing up in a large complex city like London. But the result I believe is quite unique in spiritual literature and early readers have already commented that they believe it is destined to be a classic. For example I have received endorsements from authors including bestselling Karen Ralls, who said that it is “Searingly honest, real and spiritually inspiring” and Herbie Brennan who said it is “An important, multi-layered work” and William Bloom also called it a “wonderful, entertaining and unique book”.

How do you envisage the future and spirituality?

I envision a spirituality that is grounded in change and growth rather than adherence to the beliefs of the past. This wouldn’t just be science and spirituality coming together in the sense of science supporting what we already believe about spirituality, it would be a spirituality grounded in the methods of science. A philosophy of awareness and human transformation that is interlinked with learning and inquiry in a way that has never existed before. I envision communities of spiritual awareness growing stronger and further reaching, so that the margins of aggression, violence and ignorance are diminished and ultimately replaced with compassion and peace.

Based on the author’s real-life story of dying on a mountain, this enthralling book combines the thrills of a wilderness adventure with the awe inspiring elements of a paranormal novel.

In March of 1980, college senior Peter Panagore went ice climbing on the world-famous Lower Weeping Wall, along the Ice Fields Parkway in Alberta, Canada. His climbing partner was an experienced ice climber, but Panagore was a novice. On their descent, they became trapped on the side of the mountain. As the sun set, he was overcome by exhaustion and hypothermia. He died on the side of that mountain in 1980. In his minutes on the other side, he experienced hell, forgiveness, and unconditional love. Heaven was beautiful.

Panagore’s near death experience (NDE) changed his life and resulted in an intense spiritual journey that has continued for decades. It impelled him to pursue a master’s degree at Yale Divinity School focusing on systematic theology and Christian mysticism. His educational background coupled with 30 years of yogic and meditative practice and 20 years of professional work with the dying and grieving has given him unique insight, language, and perspective on heaven, God, death, life, love, beauty, and hope.

“I have told my story to audiences large and small for a decade now. . . . My story touches people’s hearts; every time I tell it the audience is gripped and silent. . . . This book is about hope. It is meant to give real hope to the dying, hope to the fearful, hope to the hopeless, hope to the grieving.”


Peter Baldwin Panagore earned his BA in English from the University of Massachusetts and a M.Div from Yale University. He was ordained in the United Church of Christ and served churches in suburban Connecticut and Maine. He is the writer, on-air talent, and host of a daily two-minute broadcast on two TENGA-owned NBC stations in Maine, reaching an audience of 350,000 a week. He is the fifth minister of First Radio Parish Church of America (founded in 1926).

The follow-up to his New York Times bestselling book, Evidence of the Afterlife, Dr. Jeffrey Long presents a scientific study of over 3,000 people who have had a near-death experience, revealing for the first time the remarkable scientific conclusions that almost all people from every kind of background and every kind of faith or no faith share in common in their accounts: that God exists and what God is like. In his New York Times bestselling book Evidence of the Afterlife, Dr. Jeffrey Long stunned readers by presenting findings from his work at the Near Death Experience Research Foundation (NDERF), where he gathered over 1,300 accounts of near-death experiences (NDEs) from all over the world, the majority of which pointed toward a strong scientific case that there was life after death. Long has continued to do work with this database, and more than doubled the number of near-death experience accounts to over 3,000, making it the largest near-death experience study in history. Once again, the evidence overwhelmingly points to the existence of an afterlife, but this time Long goes a step further to give another startling scientific finding: that God exists and there is amazing consistency about what God is like! After studying 3,000 cases, Long found that though there are a wide variety of differences in how people experience NDE’s (some see a bright light, others go through a tunnel, still others experience a review of their life), there was one point on which many of the accounts were uniform: a description of God. Spectacularly, regardless of religion, race, or anything else, people experienced a God who radiated love and grace. This book will expand upon Long’s findings about the afterlife and will be the first deep scientific exploration of those who have reported going to the frontier of heaven, met God, and have returned to report their journey.

Evidence of the afterlife ? Dr Jeffrey Long

Dr. Jeffrey Long, Jody Long, and Paul Perry have teamed up to write this blockbuster book that became an instant bestseller after Dr. Long’s appearance on NBC’s Today Show.

“Evidence of the Afterlife” is by far the largest scientific study of NDE ever presented, and is based on researching over 1300 NDEs shared with NDERF. This book is scientific in content, yet easy and a delight to read. The people whose stories are presented span all age groups, races, and religious affiliations and come from all over the world, yet the similarities in their experiences are as awe-inspiring as they are inexplicable. Using this treasure trove of data, Dr. Long explains how medical evidence fails to explain these reports and why there is only one plausible explanation—that people have survived death and traveled to another dimension.

Anita Moorjani Shares Her Near Death Experience

In her inspirational memoir, Dying to Be Me, about fighting cancer and crossing the boundary between life and death, Anita Moorjani tries to give readers an understanding of her miraculous near death experience. Is there really a border between heaven and earth, between time and eternity?

During my near-death experience (NDE), it felt as if I were connected to the entire universe and everything contained within it; and it seemed that the cosmos was alive, dynamic, and conscious. I found that every thought, emotion, or action I made while expressing through the physical body had an effect on the Whole. In fact, in that realm of Oneness, it felt as though the whole universe were an extension of me. This realization has, of course, dramatically changed the way I view things. We’re all co-creating this world and our lives within it through our emotions, thoughts, and actions.

Language isn’t an adequate tool for expressing something that can’t be perceived with our five physical senses, so it’s challenging to find the right words to express my understanding of what took place during the experience. However, I’ll do my best to share as clearly as possible what I sense about this world, how we move through it, and how it’s changing for the better.

First, it’s important to understand that my near-death experience wasn’t like any other event I’ve experienced. It didn’t have a clear beginning and end. It was more like a door that once opened, never closes. It initiated ongoing, progressive, deeper understanding and new possibilities that never end.

Because words are a poor tool to express this kind of phenomena, what I write here is only meant to stir the appropriate emotions within you. Even after I share this, my own understanding will continue to grow and expand. Words taken literally or held as ultimate truth can keep us stagnant and stuck, holding on to old ideologies. I now know that everything I need is already contained within me and is completely accessible if I allow myself to open up to what I sense is true for me . . . and the same is true for you.

Before my near-death experience, probably because of my culture, I used to think that the purpose of life was to attain nirvana—that is, to evolve beyond the reincarnation cycle of birth and death, striving never to come back into the physical. If I’d grown up completely immersed in Western culture, maybe I would have been trying to get to heaven. This is actually a fairly common goal, regardless of culture—to live in such a way as to secure a perfect afterlife.

But after my NDE, I feel differently. Even though I know I’ll go on living beyond this plane, and I don’t fear physical death anymore, I’ve lost my desire to be anywhere but the place I am now. Interestingly, I’ve become more grounded and focused on seeing the perfection of life in this moment, rather than focusing on the other realm.

This is primarily because the concept of reincarnation in its conventional form of a progression of lifetimes, running sequentially one after the other, wasn’t supported by my NDE. I realized that time doesn’t move in a linear fashion unless we’re using the filter of our physical bodies and minds. Once we’re no longer limited by our earthly senses, every moment exists simultaneously. I’ve come to think that the concept of reincarnation is really just an interpretation, a way for our intellect to make sense of all existence happening at once.

We think in terms of “time passing,” but in my NDE, it felt as though time just is, and we’re moving through it. This means that not only do all points of time exist simultaneously, but also that in the other realm, we can go faster, slower, or even backward and sideways. In the physical plane, however, our sensory organs limit us. Our eyes take in what they see in this instant; our ears hear in the same way. The mind can only exist in one moment, and then it strings those moments together to form a linear progression. But when we spill out of our bodies, we cross all time and space with awareness—not sight, hearing, touch, taste, or smell. We’re pure consciousness.

I experienced this while in the NDE state. I was aware of my brother on a plane coming to see me and of conversations the doctors were having outside my room and down the hall. I understood many aspects of my future life, as they would be panning out, as well as what would happen if I didn’t come back and live. This showed me that time, space, and solid matter don’t always exist as we normally think of them. During my NDE, I felt that I could focus on any point in time that I needed to access.

Because of this, I believe that when someone has a glimpse of what have previously been interpreted as “past lives,” they’re actually accessing parallel or simultaneous existences, because all time exists at once. And because we’re all connected, it’s possible to achieve states of consciousness where glimpses of others’ reality seep through into our present moment, entering our consciousness as though they were memories.

My new perspective has made me wonder about our focus and purpose, if reincarnation and time itself don’t exist the way that so many of us were raised to believe. What if all our goals are the wrong way around? What if heaven or nirvana is actually here in physical expression, and not there in the afterlife? Here is a video interview of me explaining more with Hay House CEO, Reid Tracy:

Great Day Houston: Mark Anthony The Psychic Lawyer® Returns to Discuss Robin Williams’ suicide, the science of Spirit Communication and Provides Audience Readings.

What has been missing from my work, from everyone else’s work, from personal stories, from those who interpret personal stories, from experts in religion and spirituality, from the news media, the scientists, the grief-stricken, and the born again . . . is the voice of the collective . . . inside what we all seek to describe. What lies at the heart of near-death experiences? A God that in ways beyond description, smiles at you. Not the God of holy writ, but a Sourceplace—an all-encompassing Oneness, Allness, that, as It breathes, moves skin and bark and wings and stars and babes and rivers and comets and dreams and faces . . . as well as the mustard on your hotdog. The book you have before you releases that collective voice, the sum
of millions of people—worldwide—who speak as one. It is nothing less than the proof that everyone on planet Earth, in their own heart, seeks to have: that God exists.

The author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Proof of Heaven teams up with the sages of times past, modern scientists, and with ordinary people who have had profound spiritual experiences to show the reality of heaven and our true identities as spiritual beings.

When Proof of Heaven was published, some readers contacted Dr. Eben Alexander to argue that his near death experience was impossible. But many more have written to say his story resonated with them in profound ways. Because of what these people have told him, Dr. Alexander has come to realize that sharing his story has allowed people to believe what so many in ancient times knew: there is more to life, and to the universe, than this single earthly life.

Dr. Alexander met and heard from thousands of individuals whom his story has affected. He also studied what the world’s religious traditions, and its philosophers, have had to say about the soul’s survival of death, and he has been deeply surprised at how often those voices from the past synch up with what he heard from people today. In The Map of Heaven, he shares some of the stories that the people have told him and links them up with what the world’s spiritual traditions have to say about the journey of the soul.

Part metaphysical detective story, part manual for living, The Map of Heaven explores humankind’s spiritual history and the birth of modern science in the seventeenth century, showing how we forgot, and are now at last remembering, who we really are and what our true destiny really is.

CFC Keynote – Dr. Eben Alexander: Proof of Heaven | @marioninstitute

Join Dr. Alexander as he recounts his transcendental neardeath experience in the midst of severe bacterial meningitis, and his arduous trek toward understanding its profound lessons through a complete revision of everything he had come to believe about science, consciousness, spirituality, and the very nature of all existence.

Dr. Eben Alexander, a renowned academic neurosurgeon, spent 54 years honing his scientific worldview. He thought he knew how the brain and mind worked. A transcendental Near-Death Experience (NDE), in which he was driven to the brink of death and spent a week deep in coma from an inexplicable brain infection, changed all of that — completely! In his best-selling book, Proof of Heaven, A Neurosurgeon’s Journey into the Afterlife, Dr. Alexander explains that he was shocked to find the hyper-reality of that spiritual realm, which many had reported in NDEs. Dr. Alexander believes that together, science and spirituality will thrive in symbiosis, offering the most profound insight into fundamental Truth, yielding unimaginable power. By probing deeply into our own consciousness, we transcend the limitations of the human brain, and of the physical-material realm.

Adventures in the Afterlife is a powerful journey of spiritual awakening; a bold quest for answers and enlightenment. The old assumptions of heaven are confronted and an expansive new vision of our continuing life is presented.

After being diagnosed with cancer, William Buhlman, author of Adventures Beyond the Body, pursued answers to the mysteries of our existence after death. Confronting his mortality, he experienced profound insights into what lies beyond our physical body. Our journey into the next life is the basis for Adventures in the Afterlife.
