AudioVersion is Here

Or a person who is the last on your 
Valentine's Day list,
you can give them a copy of the book and say

"Too bad, we don't die, you'll never be apart from me!"*

Got someone on the Flipside you'd like to give a copy to?  We haven't figured out how to do that... yet.

But the good news is that it's love the permeates the universe, it's love that binds the universe together and keeps us all part of each other - the reports are consistent, they're replicable, and they're worth repeating.  On a day that celebrates LOVE celebrate the idea that LOVE NEVER DIES.

Oh, okay, just what you need - another jaded way to send a Valentine.
Happy Valentine's Day George Noory!

Give the gift that keeps on giving, in this lifetime and the next!!! *

Happy Valentino Day.  My grandfather's name is Valentino (as is my nephew).

So reach out and touch someone.  Give them flowers, chocolate, champagne.. and a big piece of your heart.

We're only here on the planet for a short time in this costume, playing this role, being this part - it took a lot of work for us to get here, to be here, to do this work that we're doing.  Celebrate that!  Set aside that we come back here (and other places) over and over again to teach and learn and love again.  You're here right now.  Swing for the fences!!!!

Give that Valentine, make that call, tell that person you love them that should be told that you love them, that you've forgotten to tell that you love.  Whether they're here on the planet or not - THEY WILL HEAR YOU.

And on that note: LOVE YOU!!!! HAPPY VALENTINO DAY!!!

Flipside Redux

Flipside Redux: Received a generous donation from a Pulitzer prize winning author for the sequel to Flipside. How cool is that? I'm in the midst of transcribing interviews with neuroscientists (Mario Beuregard, Bruce Greyson) interviews with scientists (Gary Schwartz) with hypnotherapists (Pete Smith, Scott De Tamble) about the latest research and reports from the afterlife.

I made a documentary ( about what thousands say about the afterlife under deep hypnosis; the book became a best seller in its genre at Amazon (#1 twice - and I took to crowd funding to help finance the sequel. I've been filming between life sessions with a number of friends, strangers, also gathering sessions from therapists nationwide, and interviewing post materialist scientists about their findings that coincide with the research I've been doing.

The new book explores near death experiences and how they coincide with between life hypnosis and scientists weigh in on the evidence they've found that consciousness can exist outside the brain. There are some other surprises inside, interviews with folks I didn't know I'd be able to reach. Right now it's weighing in around 500 pages, and I'll pare that to something that won't hurt your hands or mangle your kindle.

The research is basic, the results less so. What they report is;We don't die. That's the good news. The bad news; we don't die. Meaning, we've got a mountain of new lifetimes, adventures, and lessons to learn about why we chose this particular lifetime, those we've affected or helped (or hurt) during it, and how in the future we can learn from those explorations.

The book is not based on belief, philosophy or a desire - just eyewitness accounts from people who've taken this trip, and the scientists who corroborate what they're saying. Shy of a near death experience, it's the closest I've found where people have a consensus about what happens in the afterlife. Stay tuned, and thanks for the support.


Flipside thoughts on death in the news

With the death of the great actor Phillip Seymour Hoffman in the news, it's worth noting that there are a number of things about his death worth noting.

“I try to live my life in such a way that I don’t have profound regrets,” Mr. Hoffman told The NY Times. “That’s probably why I work so much. I don’t want to feel I missed something important.” A lot to be missed. Family. Friends. We'll miss his craft. I curse the poppy in the field, I curse those who sell it, I curse the needle, trying to capture a feeling of bliss or nothingness; if only ODs could see the day after. No judgment here, only compassion for friends and family, for the lessons he chose to explore and learn from this all too short journey. RIP

When someone we love dies, it doesn't take the pain away to realize that they might not actually be dead.  We experience loss, we experience pain in the way we're built as humans to experience it.

But when we examine the reports of consciousness existing outside the brain (see post below) or we examine accounts from people who have died and come back to report their stories, it's worth noting that all of these reports are not faked, or false.  Take for example Annie Kagan's "The Afterlife of Billy Fingers."

Billy was a person who struggled with drug addiction his whole life - and yet when he passed over, he came to his sister and recounted the reasons behind his addiction and life in a very direct way.

In "My Life After Life" written by Dr. Ken Stoller, his son Galen died at 16 and came to him to recount what he was experiencing in the afterlife.  Interesting to note that the realm or region he seemed to be in - the place he was reporting from - was a place where a number of other people either weren't aware they were dead, or were having a hard time adjusting to it.

In Dr. Medhus' "Channeling Erik" she has full and detailed conversations with her son about people and events that are uncanny in their scope.  Personally, I experienced one of those sessions as she allowed me to supply a series of questions to the people involved, questions that I alone know the answers to, and they were accurate.  So I'm convinced that these conversations with her son are happening - whether they're 100% accurate, or whether they hit or miss particular events are subject to the odds of anyone getting stories 100% accurate - suffice to say I've yet to come across any account from any story that was 100% accurate since no one can take into account all the differing points of view to any event.  Be that as it may - here we have another Doctor, trained in materialist science, who is communicating with her son in the afterlife.

In the numerous accounts I've researched and reported on, people recall past lives where they died in some fashion where their minds were altered - and they claim that it takes awhile to gather up the ability to focus your energy so you can realize where you are, and what's happening to you. 

There are a myriad of reasons why people take their lives.  Some can't handle the pain - that they signed up for.  It's a bit like walking off the field in the middle of the Super Bowl - "nope, sorry, these guys are just too big for me to play against."  (I'm actually surprised that doesn't happen more often).  But we can't judge why someone sticks a needle in their arm - any more than we can judge why the poppy flower delivers such pain and sorrow to so many and retains its beauty.

Start with the idea that between lives people (for the most part, and always at some point) experience a blissful kind of existence that's beyond any bliss they've ever felt as humans.  One can argue that drugs (and addictions) are a way to try and recreate that blissful feeling - which of course, we get to experience for eons between lives.  So what's the hurry?

I'm reporting on this topic because I think it's important - it's important to realize that we're not going to die, if only to realize that we have a lot of work ahead of us - we aren't just in it for this one 8 second ride aboard a bull - we're in it for multiple rides, multiple lessons, multiple fractures each time we take the bull into the arena.  And that's why we sign up for it.

I heard Scott De Tamble ( speak in Orange county to an group (institute of near death studies) and he said "You are the courageous ones.  We don't have to come here, we don't have to incarnate, but yet you had the courage to do so - to come here to this planet to experience all the difficulties life has to offer."    

So here's to the courageous ones.  It takes courage to come here in the first place, and whatever reasons Mr. Hoffman had to check out early are part of his own journey and are only known to him and his soul group. My two cents.
