Anita Moorjani writes: “Until we start to really take seriously the connection between our emotional and mental well-being with physical illnesses, we will still be poking around in the dark, looking for a cures. And until the medical industry changes its focus from one of purely searching for illness to one of promoting wellness instead, we will not see a significant decrease in the numbers of people being diagnosed with disease…”

New Book: ‘The Wisdom of Near-Death Experiences’ (Updated)

Oct 31

This book considers a wide range of experiences of dying patients that Dr. Sartori has encountered during her nursing career. It focuses on the near-death experiences (NDEs) of patients Dr. Sartori has nursed as well as the hundreds of cases of people who have contacted her over the years. Many people take NDEs at surface value and are mis-informed about the full extent of this highly complex phenomenon. This book examines all aspects of the NDE and Dr. Sartori emphasizes that by pathologising the NDE we are missing out on very important insights which can empower us to live fulfilled and meaningful lives…

NDEs & Hell (Updated)

NDEs & Hell (Updated)

Oct 20

“As with heaven, there are various hell realms witnessed by near-death experiencers. We can even see many manifestations of hell right here in the physical realm. There are people in prison, in the Bahamas, in mental institutions, universities, skid row, palaces, crack houses, all kinds of life situations. While hell realms can be seen outside all around the world as a manifestation of an inner hell within humans, hell realms in the spirit world are an even greater manifestation of inner hell within humans. Near-death accounts show that the hell realms in the spirit world are actually the spiritual/mental manifestations of spiritual conditions that humans create within themselves while on Earth.”

— NDE Researcher Kevin Williams

Oct 18

Lee Thornton’s book is an autobiographical account of how her life-changing encounter during a near-death experience helped guide her on a path of healing. An upbringing that included childhood sexual abuse and deception left her battling depression and illness on her quest for wholeness. She recounts growing up as the daughter of a distinguished U.S. diplomat in a world where respectable appearances concealed the reality of underlying secrets, violation, duplicity and manipulation. In the course of going through a divorce, long separations from her son, struggles with unresolved family issues, and trying to heal from a chronic illness, she learns universal lessons about love, self-acceptance, and forgiveness that help her win her hard-fought battle for wholeness, authenticity, and the realization of her purpose. She hopes that sharing her story helps others who have suffered similar adversities or are seeking self-acceptance and greater fulfillment…

Reconsider Columbus Day

Reconsider Columbus Day

Oct 13

For many in the United States, Columbus Day is just another holiday. It is a time to spend with family and friends, an opportunity to take a short vacation, an extra day of rest from a long work week, or it is the last chance for a barbecue before winter. But for others, it is a sharp and painful reminder that history has betrayed and forgotten the contributions of their people, the lives lost, and a rich culture that pre-dated colonization.

From the moment a sailor aboard the Pinta sighted land from the sea, on October 12, 1492, the course of indigenous history was forever changed. Upon landing on what is now the Bahamas, once known as Guanahani, Columbus encountered indigenous peoples of the Lucayan, Taíno or Arawak, nations. Peaceful and friendly, Columbus and his Spanish explorers manipulated their hospitality and mercilessly slaughtered, enslaved, and stole lands in the name of the Spanish crown. He wrote of them in his journal, “They ought to make good and skilled servants, for they repeat very quickly whatever we say to them”…

Amy Call’s Near-Death Experience (Updated)

Oct 12

EXCERPT: “I came to understand that most of us have lived much, MUCH longer than we could even fathom. That our lives that feel so very long are infinitesimal when placed in the Whole picture… which for that matter, cannot even be framed. I was shown how every single individual through their own free will chooses paths that MATHEMATICALLY take them to the circumstances of their next existence or life. That NOTHING at all sits in accident or chaos. That every single aspect of our lives are ruled by NATURAL Laws that we placed ourSELVES in! That in a sense, we create our own worlds. I was shown how one can never assume either, that if someone lives a life of suffering that this is because of ‘evil’ deeds. Many may CHOOSE a life of suffering because of what it Awakens in them.. or to help another, etc.. We can NEVER EVER assume that we can be accurate in guessing why each Being lives the life they live. I cannot describe the relief… the refreshing, peaceful balm this Knowledge was for me. To finally gather this Truth that I’d yearned for all of my life… That all IS Good! That there IS sense and beauty all around. That no one is just ‘free-falling’ as it had seemed before! That God doesn’t just get to toy with us as He pleases with random ideas of tests, including rewards and punishments that just depend upon His current mood or mindset. While in this experience, out in the vast expanse of stars and planets, moons, and Knowledge, I Knew complete Trust for what felt like the first time. This was bliss for me. I had lived in fear and distrust and panic for 30 consecutive years…”

Hawaiian NDE from 1907

Many years ago, in the village of Kona on the big island of Hawaii, a woman named Kalima grew ill and died, leaving behind a bereaved family, including a husband and young children. Having prepared her grave and readied her body for burial, kinfolk and friends gathered about her corpse for their last farewell. Suddenly, though, she moved, took a long breath, and looked around. “I have something strange to tell you,” she announced…

New Book: ‘The FBI-CIA-UFO Connection’

New Book: ‘The FBI-CIA-UFO Connection’

Sep 10

This book goes inside the real X-Files. Not only have the FBI and CIA investigated UFOs, but both agencies have actively tried to conceal that fact from the public. This book proves it. These agencies collected information which, when combined with evidence collected by Air Force Intelligence, proves that at least some UFOs are interplanetary craft. Furthermore, top Air Force officials knew this over sixty years ago and withheld (covered up?) this information from the American people. Written by Dr. Bruce Maccabee, one of the most respected voices in UFO research, this is a riveting page-turner, packed with information. It tells the real story of why America’s leading intelligence agencies have been genuinely concerned about UFOs, and why the “problem of UFOs” is unlikely to go away any time soon…

Celebrity Near-Death Experiences (Updated)

Jul 28

The near-death experiences of rich and famous people are particularly interesting. They are rolling in the money. They are known all over the world. They are often beautiful, articulate and very talented in what they do. With this in mind, why would such a person reveal to everyone that they were dead and came back to life? Money? They already got that. Fame? They are already famous. In fact, by telling everyone they came back from the dead, they may be risking their own reputation. People who reveal such things to others often become the butt of jokes or thought to be crazy. Why would anyone rich and famous subject themselves to this when it might result in lost fame and fortune? The only rational reason that such people who have nothing to gain is that it really happened to them and they want to share it with the world. The following are rich and famous people who risked it all to tell the world about their near-death experience….
