A review from Holland

I just got this email from a fellow in Holland.  Made me laugh, thought I'd post it.  I've been saying "this research isn't for everyone, but for those who need to hear it will find it. For the rest, "these are not the droids you're looking for."  But for those who are interested in tales from the spirit world - here's what this fellow had to say:

Let me first tell you that never in my life I have written to an author I didn’t know personally to tell him how much I enjoyed his book.  So, sending you a message via Facebook was not my style. Still, I wrote it, actually not expecting a reply at all. It was just meant as a thumps up from the other side of the world J

Anyway, now we got in touch, I have to tell you ‘reading Flipside’ has been a very intense experience for me. It hit me like a hammer. (ok, a good hammer :). For sure, to me it’s the most important book I’ve read in a long time. Even more so than the 3 books of Michael Newton, which I also read. Actually his work and ‘Flipside’ complement each other perfectly. Yours is more personal though, more emotional and less constricted by the idea that you have to follow the (scientific) ‘rulebook’.

What ‘Flipside’ and Michael Newton’s books have in common for me, is that they feel (by lack of a better word) so TRUE. It’s all quite unbelievable and mind-boggling ofcourse, but to me it really feels like: this is IT! This is how a lot of stuff and loose ends and intuitions I’ve always had suddenly make sense.

What I really like about ‘Flipside’ is your tone of voice and style of writing. Really rock ‘n roll, loose and funny, relaxed and without any unnecessary hocus pocus. Even though I also enjoyed Newton’s books a lot, and I was amazed by their content, his view of the afterlife and its inhabitants sometimes feels a bit stiff and scholarly. ‘Flipside’ is more fun, and therefore more realistic – or at least it is to me.

Thanks!  I had many fun days in Holland, I hope I get to spend some more there.  It's the only government I'm aware of that is using past life regression with violent criminals - once they're able to examine some of the reason's why they chose this life, or see that they've had experiences with other people before, it changes them forever.  Worth examining!  FROM AUG. 27TH, 2012

Dutch prisons use psychics to help prisoners contact the dead

Dutch prisons are using psychics to give jailed criminals guidance by putting them in touch with their dead relatives.

Paul van Bree, a self-styled "paragnost" or clairvoyant, has been hired by the Dutch prison service to teach prisoners how to "love themselves".
"I tell them that dead relatives are doing well and that they love them. That brings them peace. Big strong men burst into tears," he said.
Mr van Bree, who also publishes annual predictions of the future, claims to be from a long line of clairvoyants, including his mother and grandmother.
The Dutch paranormal, who describes himself as the "happy Buddha" told De Tijd magazine that he is not the only psychic healer employed by the Dutch justice ministry.
He has claimed that by talking to both the prisoner and the prisoner's dead parents he can discover key psychological insights to help the prison authorities rehabilitate criminals.
"With my antennae I sometimes reveal more than a psychologist or a prison welfare officer," he said. "My work can be compared to mental health care in widest sense of the words."
A spokesman for the Dutch justice ministry said: "This is not something which fits in our treatment field."
In 2007, 42,500 Dutch people signed up to state funded spiritually-based "personal development programmes". 


Flipside in Torrent!

This is funny.  My documentary and book have been uploaded to Pirate Bay and other torrent venues so anyone can view them for free.  This is both amusing and annoying.
What happens to folks who download torrents illegally

As anyone can tell you, working independently on a film or a book is a labor of love.  And certainly I feel the information in both of these are worthy of examination.  It's hard to complain - who the hell wants to upload a 90 minute documentary on reincarnation?  Or why we choose to be on the planet?

On one hand, the research behind it suggests that we choose our lives, and we choose who we're going to be on the planet, and we act accordingly.  So if we're a person who thinks its ok to download people's work for free, we're the same folks who don't mind lifting or pilfering other items on the planet.

But "Flipside?"  It's $2 on amazon to view, and the kindle is $10.  They both represent five years of my life - not to mention all the people who agreed to let me film them while they're under hypnosis.  Pretty shocking for them to agree to that in the first place, but then there's the physical act of putting the film and book together.  On the other hand, the motivation behind the project is to get people to examine that we do choose to be on the planet, we do reincarnate consciously, and therefore, it makes sense for us to keep the planet a safer place - clean water and air, if not for our children, but for our own return.

Oh well - it's one of those conundrums of modern life.  Enjoy the film and book you downloading fiends!  But if it rings true to you, please go to the donate donut to the right of this post, and make a donation, whatever you can - my family will appreciate it.


Foreword to "Flipside" by Gary E Schwartz Ph.D.

“Flipside: A Journeyinto the Afterlife” film is based on my book “Flipside:  A Tourist’s Guide on How to Navigate the Afterlife.”  I began the documentary initially in 2007, then set it aside to focus on the book, and after it was published in 2011, went back to finish the documentary.  But just to include a scientist’s point of view about the field or research, I’m including Professor Gary Schwartz Ph.D’s foreword to the book, which he asked me if he could write for the book after reading it.  

I may not be a scientist but I know one who is.

Foreword from the book “FLIPSIDE: A TOURIST’S GUIDE ON HOW TO NAVIGATE THE AFTERLIFE” written by scientist and author Gary Schwartz Ph.D.;

"Is life designed in advance? Are we all part of some elaborately plotted mini-series that runs every waking moment? Does it really matter one way or the other? We're on the planet for a reason, we have roles to play, we might as well play them as well as we can. However, that doesn't prevent me from perennially rooting for the Cubs." Richard Martini, author of “Flipside.”

Is there a greater spiritual reality? Does consciousness survive physical death? Are past lives real? Is there a creative grand plan - some sort of a Divine Plot - of which we are all a part, and can we individually and collectively contribute to It's design and unfolding? And assuming for the moment some sort of a grand planning process exists, the question arises; does It - whom I have come to think of as being an "Infinite Teacher" - have a sense of humor?

I am scientist by training and profession. My laboratory research has led me to address these kinds of questions in various books including The Afterlife Experiments, The G.O.D. Experiments, and The Sacred Promise. Like Richard Martini, the author of “Flipside,” I am a skeptic in the core sense of this word - meaning a wonderer, a questioner, and a genuine seeker of truth.

Of all these great questions, the hypothesis of past lives - the continued re-living of individual souls for the sake of our learning and evolving - is among the least researched and most controversial. The truth is, science knows virtually nothing about the concept of incarnation or consciousness. Contemporary science simply assumes the idea of incarnation is a myth (and a fallacious one at that), and according to mainstream neuroscience, consciousness is an emergent property of neural networks, an evolutionary side effect so to speak of the invention of the brain and nervous system.

According to the prevailing views of mainstream science, there can be no such thing as the incarnation of consciousness because the brain is the sole creator of consciousness. Most neuroscientists don't entertain the hypothesis the brain might be a brilliantly designed antenna and receiver for consciousness which somehow returns - incarnates and/or connects (for example, resonates) with the brain.

An emerging body of consciousness research (typically classified under the umbrella of parapsychology), when combined with contemporary quantum physics, seriously challenges the belief the brain is the creator of consciousness. This new evidence requires we reconsider the idea of the incarnation of consciousness, and by extension, the plausibility (if not probability) of reincarnation. Three types of scientific inquiry together can provide us with important evidence which addresses these great questions:

Type I Self-Science: Evidence obtained in the laboratories of our individual lives, where personal observations are recorded and examined from a skeptical (questioning), science-oriented frame of mind.

Type II Exploratory Investigations: Where scientists use themselves as preliminary prototype subjects, testing new laboratory methods and procedures on themselves, and

Type III Conventional Research: When controlled experiments are conducted on human or animal subjects following federal and university rules and guidelines.

Although Type III Conventional Research is the most respected and sometimes the most definitive, Type I Self-Science is often where the most innovative and core discoveries are made. The history of science reminds us that great scientists like Isaac Newton and Albert Einstein took Type I observations made in their personal lives and successfully translated them into revolutionary Type III theories and discoveries. When these three types of evidence collectively come to the same conclusion, their combined impact is significantly greater than either one alone. 

Richard Martini's “Flipside” is an inspiring and well written - as well as entertaining - journey of Type I Self-Science which is focused on the interrelated questions of (1) reincarnation and past lives, (2) past life regression and healing, and (3) the existence of a universal grand designer and plan. As you read Richard's journey of personal discovery in the context of these great questions, you will awaken to a vision of mind and the universe which is filled with opportunity and awe. 

This is the kind of the book where once you have read it, you will no longer be able to see the world in the same way again. I must confess that after reading “Flipside,” it appears that I may no longer be able to resist bringing past life hypothesis research into the laboratory. Though this book has not resulted in my deciding to root for the Cubs (smile), it has encouraged me to root for the possibility that Richard's observations and insights will prove to be valid and meaningful for all of us.
