Fans of Flipside know Luana as my pal who started to come and visit me after she passed away back in 1996. She inspired me to write about her visits in the book and film "Flipside" and then later in the books "It's a Wonderful Afterlife" and "Hacking the Afterlife."
Last month I recounted how she came to visit me while I was having lunch with the medium/intuitive Jennifer Shaffer in our usual "Chatting with the flipside" event.

Last night Luana gave us some more insight to chew on.

Here's what was happening when she "appeared."
Our daughter had come down with something... perhaps something she ate earlier in the day, and was feeling sick, shivering. But at the same time we were getting ready to make a long flight back home from visiting our relatives back in Wisconsin.
It was a funeral - of the one and only "Dadzo" Coyne Callaghan, who lived to 96 and spawned the most amazing, fun, hilarious, phenomenal relatives anyone could hope to have.
Whenever I'm with them, I can't help but marvel how hilarious they all are - there are 11 children, and the amazing story of how when he proposed marriage to my Aunt Martha (sister of my mom) they actually named all the children they were going to have.
They named 12 of them, but had 11. I found out at the funeral that the name of the missing child was "Ann Louise" - from a stranger who had just heard the story no less! - but also discovered there were 4 miscarriages in total.
So they might have had 15. But instead they had 11 of the most amazing, wonderful, charming, generous people I've had the pleasure to meet.
But back to Luana.
So my wife Sherry decides she needs to pray to help heal our little daughter, who is shivering with this illness, sick, and can't sleep. And she put out a "call to all angels" and then fell asleep.
That's when Luana appeared.
Sherry insists this was a "dream and not a vision" - but that's what people have to say around me, because I'm constantly saying "tell me what else she said, what was she wearing, etc, about every dream I hear.
Sherry only saw her face. About 30 (many years before they met) and Sherry's reaction to seeing her was to say "How can you be here? You died back in 1996."
|She appeared looking a bit like this.|
Then she said "Imagine the numbers 11..11 as an example."
(We've all heard people talk about seeing the numbers 11:11 on a clock - at least I have - and wonder about the synchronicity of seeing that particular time each day.)
Well, Luana explained that synchronicity.
She said imagine that I am an 11 and you are an 11 separated by two decimals.
(As she put it: "Imagine 11 . . 11 with two decimals between the numbers")
She said "In order for you to see me, you move one decimal in my direction, and I move once decimal in your direction."
Sherry didn't understand this, but I do.
Based on that other discussions we've had, everything on the flipside is a matter of understanding how energy works, how waves work, how math works. That in order for them to manifest, appear, it's a matter of understanding the math behind doing that, as well as understanding the time frame of the time/space realm where they need to appear so that we can see them.
But it requires both of us to move in the same direction. So in Sherry's case it was because she was asleep, in the sleep state, that she was able to "shift her focus" to be able to see Luana, but equally, in order for Luana to appear to her in this form, she has to "shift her focus" to be able to appear to Sherry.
The space craft is a metaphor for "moving at lightning speeds" (in this case it was a Star Wars Lego ship) and that "moving at the speed of light" is a metaphor for how fast people are able to move on the flipside when they want to focus on doing so.
I've interviewed a number of people who when asked to describe the "one thing" they'd like to tell people about the flipside it's "I can fly."
And by that they don't mean wings - but they do mean moving from one place to the next at lightning speed.

Luana also said our daughter would be fine after she slept (she was).
I heard this story on the way to the airport this morning - and despite Sherry's insistence that it wasn't a vision, but "only a dream" I share it here - because... wow.
What a cool dream.
