‘The Formula for Creating Heaven on Earth’ by David Sunfellow (Updated: Version 2.1)

Oct 19

Many of you have heard about “The Formula for Creating Heaven on Earth” or “The Formula.” I introduced the idea in my two-part YouTube presentation called “How Near-Death Experiences Are Changing The World.” Essentially, I’ve been trying to identify the universal truths presented by near-death experiences and wrestle them into “a formula” that we can use to transform our lives. After a year of teaching classes in Sedona that have focused on applying NDE truths in our personal lives, I’ve finally created a chart that illustrates the key aspects of The Formula. Here it is… (Version 2.1 is now available!)

Dr. Lani Leary: ‘Preparing for a Meaningful Death’

Oct 24

Bob Olson of AfterLifeTV writes: “This is a conversation that everyone one of us needs to have, yet few are prepared for in life. Too many people in our society have no idea how to properly help a loved one who’s dying. We don’t know what to say, how to act or what needs the dying have. Similarly, many don’t know what to say to the grieving or how to act around their presence either. This Afterlife TV episode offers a revealing conversation with Dr. Lani Leary who is an authority on how to find peace and meaning in both death and bereavement.”

” …I think of something recent that I see as very important. I’ve sensed in the last five years or so that the scoffers are on the defensive… They’ve been rattled when I see them in the debates… there’s not this abrasive aggressiveness you used to see. It’s rather more like they feel they don’t know where they are and all their old arguments have run out…”

The Soul Proof Documentary film presents collective evidence — clinical, scientific, religious/spiritual, and firsthand experience in nature — that convincingly proves that you are an infinite spiritual being. It shares life-transformative benefits and action steps to help you more fully know and express your magnificent energetic/spiritual nature.

Wayne Dyer, Raymond Moody and others contributed exclusive interviews. The documentary features many people who have had after-death contacts, near-death experiences, miracles, ghost sightings and other encounters. It also shares input from pioneers in consciousness studies such as Raymond Moody, M.D., Ph.D., Ken Ring, Ph.D., and Michael Newton, Ph.D. Many people feel that watching this movie allowed them to live with more peace, hope, enthusiasm, purpose and power no matter what is going on around them…

New Book: ‘Divine Moments…’

Apr 02

Nancy Clark’s life was transformed forever by a near-death and a near-death-like experience that resulted in her passion to show us that humans can experience the reality of their true, authentic self — the self that is rooted in the divine and brimming with love for all humanity. She has been researching spiritually transformative experiences for thirty years and now in this groundbreaking book, she has compiled diverse spiritually transformative experiences happening to ordinary people today. The experiences are varied and include near-death and near-death-like experiences, out-of-body experiences, after-death communications, spiritual awakenings, religious conversion experiences, meditative and prayerful experiences, and mystical experiences. Learn how these individuals awakened to a new understanding of their deepest assumptions about the eternal questions: Why am I here? Where am I going? What is the purpose of life? Learn how their inner wisdom can assist all of us in understanding that we are more than biological beings; we are spirits of consciousness that are gifted with a love born of our divine nature.

Quote: Raymond Moody

Quote: Raymond Moody

Feb 23

“What do I think happens when we die? I think we enter into another stage of existence or another state of consciousness that is so extraordinarily different from the reality we have here in the physical world that the language we have is not yet adequate to describe this other state of existence or consciousness. Based on what I have heard from thousands of people, we enter into a realm of joy, light, peace, and love in which we discover that the process of knowledge does not stop when we die. Instead, the process of learning and development goes on for eternity.” — Raymond Moody, from Paranormal: My Life in Pursuit of the Afterlife

Feb 07

From the bestselling author of Life After Life and pioneer researcher and leading authority on near-death experiences comes Paranormal: My Life in Pursuit of the Afterlife, an intimate look at a lifetime spent fearlessly wrestling with humankind’s most important and perplexing question: What happens when we die? In Paranormal: My Life in Pursuit of the Afterlife (HarperOne; February 2012), the pioneering researcher reveals how he became the first doctor to extensively study and eventually unveil this previously unknown experience of the near-death experience to the general public. From his childhood curiosity about the soul to his academic exploration of philosophy, from his early research into the afterlife to the publication of the bestselling book Life After Life, Moody’s entire life has been devoted to a deeper understanding of what comes next — and to exploring better ways for the living to encounter the dead…

Annie Cap: ‘Beyond Goodbye’

Annie Cap: ‘Beyond Goodbye’

Feb 06

In her hospital bed in Oregon 5000 miles away, Annie’s mother, Betty, started to gag and suffocate as she came closer to death. At exactly the same time and unaware of what was happening Annie, at work in England, started to choke. Then sensing she must call, Annie urgently telephoned to say “goodbye” one last time. Hearing her mother’s labored breathing, she understood – miraculously her mother had reached across the heavens to be with her as she began to die. Shortly after her mother’s death, more unusual occurrences began to happen. Night after night, her mother reached from the “other-side” to comfort her – and this was only the beginning. Unexpectedly, sharing in her mother’s final moments acted as some kind of catalyst. Annie’s intuitive and psychic abilities instantly and dramatically increased, and ultimately led to a renewal of her faith. As a non-believer, who had rejected religion from a young age, she was completely transformed by her experiences…

Book: ‘Near-Death Experiences, The Rest of the Story…’

Jan 17

“Having undergone her own profound transformations in consciousness resulting from three successive Near-Death Experiences in 1977, P.M.H. Atwater set about on her distinguished career of careful, detective-like fieldwork and research into the mysteries of NDEs. Near-Death Experiences: the Rest of the Story is her crowning achievement. In it Atwater places the varied phenomena of NDEs into a broader setting of the natural ‘ongoing process of transformative adaptation within the human family as a species’. This is P.M.H. Atwater at her very best, resetting the bar for all future NDE research. She is magnificent in her painstaking role as detective, observer, interrogator, advisor, empathizer, compiler & categorizer of data, and creative formulator of plausible hypotheses in the face of 43 years of research findings…This is Atwater’s 10th book, and is an absolute must for anyone interested in how NDEs relate to the transformation of consciousness, spiritual awakening, and our true potential & that of the world. It is destined to become a classic in Near-Death Studies and Consciousness Research, and has my highest recommendation.” — Scott A. Olsen, Ph.D.

Book Review: Glimpses of Eternity

Book Review: Glimpses of Eternity

Oct 15

I recently finished Raymond Moody’s new book, Glimpses of Eternity: Sharing a Loved One’s Passage from This Life to the Next. I had looked forward to reading this ever since reading and watching some of the advance material. Just as Moody brought near-death experiences (NDEs) to public awareness 35 years ago, he now said he would bring a new and extremely important phenomenon into view, one that puts to rest the skeptical objections to the NDE. He calls these shared death experiences. They are where a person (sometimes several people) seems to actually share in the crossing over of a loved one. People began sharing their personal stories of these with him even before he published Life After Life. And as time went on, he became even more interested in these shared death experiences than in near-death experiences. Over time he has asked audiences all over the world if they have had such shared death experiences, and he implies he has collected quite a number…

Book: Glimpses of Eternity by Raymond Moody

Book: Glimpses of Eternity by Raymond Moody

Oct 11

Raymond Moody, author of the multimillion copy best-seller, Life After Life, reveals new results from his lifelong investigation of what happens when we die. The startling pattern that Moody discovered is that at the time of death, loved ones also have inexplicable experiences. Glimpses of Eternity is the first book to talk about the phenomenon of ‘shared death experiences.’ Readers will discover deathbed moments when entire families see the light or the room changes shape. Others tell of seeing a film like review of a loved one’s life and learning things that they could never have known otherwise. The stories are at once a comfort and a mystery, giving us a new understanding of the journey that we will take at the end of our lives…
