Sadly Dr. Emoto, a famous water and energy researcher passed away today in Japan around 1:30 am.
Dr. Emoto is the author of a number of bestselling books, including The Hidden Messages in Water, The Healing Power of Water, The True Power of Water and The Secret Life of Water, a three-volume photo collection of beautiful water crystals and commentary. His books have been translated into more than twenty-five languages.
Dr. Emoto was the founder of the worldwide Hado Instructor School in order to disseminate the ancient principle of hado (life-force vibration). He was the chairman of IHM Co, director of IHM General Research Institute3, and president emeritus of the International Water for Life Foundation. He was a longtime advocate for water and travelled extensively around the world providing seminars in order to spread the message of peace that is indicated by his crystals.
Often I am called upon to clear the energy of a home. This can be for many reasons, including spiritual unrest, residual energy from past residents, neighboring disturbances, etc. Fundamentally what I do is change the vibration of the residence, to a more peaceful state and cleanse it of any unwanted energy. This provides comfort to the residents, allows them to sleep more refreshed, and feel more balanced. The work can be quite challenging and takes a lot of energy for me to provide this service. But I do it as a way to help others, so I feel it is all worth while when the residents call back letting me know all is well.
I have a video recording of me clearing a home of six spirits taken with a simple iPhone recording. Today seems like a good day to shorten the video and place it on YouTube….so stay tuned and I should have the recording up today.
Kyabje Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche.
Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche is one of the master teachers of the Dalai Lama. His writings are incredibly useful and easy to understand. They are very practical to apply to your everyday life. I enjoy reading his words every evening. If you ever feel uneasy, or restless about a situation, I’m sure you will find solace in his words.
Let’s share some here together…
“The sign that you have fully assimilated your learning of the Dharma is that you become peaceful by nature. The sign that you have assimilated your meditation is that you are free of obscuring emotions. As learning leads to reflection and reflection transforms into meditation, your eagerness for the deluded activities of this life will relax, and you will yearn for the Dharma instead.”
“If you find you have committed a negative action physically, verbally, or mentally, you must acknowledge it immediately, confess, and repair the downfall. And if you see that you have done something positive, make a prayer ‘May I do even more, may I increase in virtue’.'”
“When you are watching a film, people in it appear to be really fighting battles, loving each other, and so forth, but none of these things are actually happening. It is all just fantasy. Try to see all your joys and sorrows as if you were watching a movie, letting go of the idea that you have to strive hard to avoid whatever is difficult or unpleasant. This will make your happiness indestructible.”
“Mastery of the mind is achieved through constant awareness of all your thoughts and actions. Check your mind over and over again, and as soon as negative thoughts arise, remedy them with the appropriate antidotes.”
“We can never understand the nature of the mind through intense effort but only by relaxing, just as breaking a wild horse requires that one approach it gently and treat it kindly rather than running after it and trying to use force. So do not try to catch hold the nature of the nature of the mind, just leave it like it is.”
“In our everyday activities we should be able to retain the understanding we have found in meditation. Otherwise, though we may think that we have reached a high level of meditation, we will stumble over the first obstacle we encounter, and we will be unable to deal with the various circumstances that beset us in daily life. Mediation and post-meditation periods should reinforce and complement eac…h other. If they do not, it is hard to achieve liberation.”
“A mind that has been brought under control is indeed the only true source of happiness.”
“To know how to be satisfied with what you have is to possess true wealth.”

Life is very temporary, more so than we realize. We need to be ever mindful of our speech, actions, and thoughts as we create our own reality with our thoughts. We really do. Perhaps you know of a “Debbie Downer” who always seems to be in crisis mode, and may even use you for their sounding board. Every day their problems and challenges are shared with you. Perhaps you feel drained after talking with them? Maybe you were in a good mood before they came over and dumped all their problems out on the table for you?
If you find a friend’s life spinning out of control, and are concerned for them, remember one thing. We are all connected to an infinite source of energy. You and they are unlimited in potential and are only stymied by our own thoughts, or doubts. Gently remind them that what they focus on is what they are attracting more of in their life. When they start their broken record, try to move them off topic, and let them know wouldn’t it be better to feel better? Of course I’m not talking about grief that is honestly something that really needs to be talked about in order to heal. But when a person is so focused on how someone or something has done them wrong – somehow they keep bringing in the same sorts of situations to themselves.
Some very interesting reading I’ve been doing includes: Esther and Jerry Hicks – The Law of Attraction. Here is a passage that I highly recommend if you are feeling a bit out of balance:
“I like being here; I recognize the value and power of this time. I feel very good to be here. I see myself in a sort of total package, one that I know is of my own creating, and certainly a package of my choosing. I am full of energy in this picture of myself- tireless, and really moving through life experience without resistance. As I see myself gliding about, moving in and out of rooms, buildings, conversations, and in out of life experiences, I see myself flowing effortlessly, comfortably, and happily.
I see myself attracting only those who are in harmony with my current intent. And I am clearer and clearer in every moment about what it is I want…
The more you come to understand the power of the law of attraction the more interest you will have in deliberately directing your thoughts-for you get what you think about, whether you want it or not. Without exception, that which you give thought to is that which you begin to invite into your experience. When you think a little thought of something that you want, through the law of attraction, that thought grows larger and larger, and more and more powerful. When you think a thought of something you do not want, the law of attraction draws unto it, and it grows larger and larger, also. And so, the larger the thought grows, the more power it draws unto it, and then the more certain you are to receive the experience.
In this attraction-based universe there is no such thing as an exclusion. Your attention to it includes it in your vibration and if you hold it in your attention or awareness long enough, the law of attraction will bring it into your experience, for there is no such thing as “No”. To clarify when you look at something and shout, “No, I don’t want to experience that; go away!” then what you are actually doing is calling it into your experience. You live in an attraction-based universe. Your attention to it says, “Yes, come to me, this thing I do NOT want!” Fortunately here in your physical time-space reality, things do not manifest into your experience instantaneously. There is a wonderful buffer of time between when you begin to think about something and the time it manifests. That buffer of time gives you the opportunity to redirect your attention more and more in the direction of the things that you actually do want to manifest in your experience.
In my readings I rejoin the client and their loved ones who have passed on. It is a confidential conversation between the client, and their close relatives or friends. The below summaries change the names and identifying details for the client’s privacy.
I present them only so that you may more deeply understand the kinds of cases that I am familiar working with and the types of emotional healing that take place. In this way you can reflect on how your reading might be of service to you. Sometimes individuals may have specific questions as to why individuals acted a certain way towards them in life, and need healing and answers. Others need to understand the exact circumstances of how or why someone passed away.
Spirits and clients alike often have unfinished business to attend to. Both client and spirit come away from the readings refreshed and relieved of heavy burdens. Freeing individuals from suffering, and emotional pain is why I do this work. God bless you and yours.
Testimonials and review of readings.
10-11-2014 – “Natasha”, Toronto, Canada
Natasha’s husband had passed away in January from a severe illness. Both him and his wife were born in the Ukraine and he travelled often to Moscow, and other parts of the world. His spirit was very strong, warm and friendly, but Natasha was in deep pain from loneliness. He was eager to help her to heal. He expressed his very sincere love for her. He was a classical musician and quite a charismatic person. Reading confirmed some events that had hurt them both during their life together. Victor was so unhappy to see his wife suffering so, that he insisted on telling her how much he loved her in so many endearing ways. There was no doubt that she was the love of his life, and he would be love in with her forever.
He was very passionate about her feeling better. He urged her not to continue to let these issues bother her, as his love was everlasting and promised with all that he had he would make it up to her. He told her he had already been composing some music, divinely inspired just for her, and that he would let her hear this music in her dreams or while she was drifting off to sleep. He also let her know that through his conscious intention he was able to create a reality for her when it was time, that was inviting, beautiful and just like home.
10-5-2014 – “Mike” – Worchester, Massachusetts
Mike is an extremely accomplished business man, MIT graduate, understood physics and was due to appear on the cover of a national magazine in recognition. Brilliant and creative, Mike often solved very complicated problems for his clients remarkably fast. Almost as if divinely inspired, his solutions were incredible and fully developed without him having to agonize or overwork the problem. In fact he could do all of his work in about 2 days, and spend the rest of the week doing what he wished. But alas Mike despite having it all, a great business with over 200 employees at one time, and a beautiful loving family – he still felt at odds, at a cross roads. He wanted a scan reading of the possibilities and particularly wanted to know the potential for working with a new partner. Reading revealed what the possibilities were and how he could get his balance back.
9-5-2014 and 10-9-2014 – “Michael”, Seattle, Washington
Michael was in a lot of pain, and very concerned for his wife who had unfortunately committed suicide one week before. The spirit came in quite quickly and very strong and was very relieved to be able to speak with him. She reassured him that she was doing better than he believed. Reading confirmed that his wife unfortunately suffered from a chemical imbalance for most of her life, creating a disturbance in her emotions. She really loved her husband, but unfortunately was quick to anger and did not mesh well with her family or others because of her condition. Remarkably, she stated during the reading she was actually feeling more in control, self confident, and lucid then in the physical. Client was very much relieved to hear direct messages about her peaceful transition, and that she was in a good place for her. Guides advised gentle post traumatic counseling to help him heal from the shock of the event, take time for himself to heal, and spirit asked her to forgive her. Which of course he did. This immediately lifted the energy of the reading from trauma to a state of more inner peace and acceptance.
Michael scheduled another reading about one month later and continued to heal in new ways. He learned he could use his own intuitive powers to converse with his wife, and that he was quite strong enough to do that. He confirmed he was very good at automatic writing — and also desired to go out of body for short periods of time. I let him know how to achieve that so that he could feel the closeness of his wife in a move vivid way and real way. This made him very happy as he knew now that he could experience the company of his lovely wife in spirit and feel the close again in a comforting way.
9-27-2014 “Christine & Jack”, Lakewood Ranch, Sarasota, Florida
Christine and Jack were due to close on their new home in Lakewood Ranch that day. They felt they had too many issues and some friction with the builder. In fact the main contractor retired the very day they closed on the house. So they sincerely wanted the house cleared of any imbalanced energy before they moved in. To our delight during the clearing a double rainbow came up across the lake behind their home. Also while clearing the space I was able to detect two slight trouble spots in the construction with my eyes closed. They were happy about that, and scheduled another session for when their belongings were to come from Orlando.
9-1-2014 – “Terry” – Tulsa, Oklahoma
Terry is quite a success story. She has grown tremendously through a series of sessions with her mother, who passed away two years ago. Previously Terry was afraid for the future, had never had lived alone. Her sessions with her mom have gently reassured her, and guided her through several key transitional points in her life. As a result of her mom’s advice, she successfully got her first apartment in a new city, successfully took on and finished driving school, got her license, bought her own car, was going to night school and now even bought her first condo. Terry’s mom assured her that it was now her time to shine, and that she owed it to herself to be more picky about potential suitors. She didn’t need to always rescue someone, and it was again time for her to be pampered. Mother predicted a nice rancher gentleman who was ready for an honest relationship just as she wished. The scent of leather came in very strongly, and she even suggested buying a cowboy hat to have at the ready in anticipation of her new boyfriend.
8-28-2014 – “Mary”, Fort Lauderdale, Florida
Mary’s young son gave the ultimate sacrifice, and had recently passed away during his Naval service. Reading accurately described her son who was responsible for saving quite a few lives of his fellow friends. Reading revealed that the mother indeed had been in communication with the Navy calling repeatedly about an incident, and that an ongoing investigation was taking place within his military unit. Spirit revealed that he felt compelled to help others as ongoing unrest occurs in the world, and he would join a large group that would look out after others and circumvent attacks before they occurred.
4-2-2014 – “Sarah” Palm Beach, Florida
Client called about son who is uncomfortable and suffering from Post Traumatic Disorder Syndrome, The son found his own brother who tragically passed away by accident one year ago. Reading confirmed that the brother in spirit was very concerned for his sibling, and that he wanted to protect and console him in the darkest hour of need. He relayed information that a certain counselor would be perfect and the sooner the better. The young man was thinking of very serious actions and was suffering from considerable depression. Mother confirmed this. Spirit advised mother on confidential matters relating to his care. He also relayed specific messages of love and confirmed many of the positive things he had been working on.
4/ 1/2014 – “Cindy” Ontario, Canada
Cindy has been a client for one year, and called to let me know that the prediction of the settlement for a divorce timing was on point. Scan of husband and girlfriend revealed neither were completely being honest with themselves – and that an impending marriage would be more for “show” and a branding of “legitimacy” than honest love. Reading revealed that the husband was an opportunist and saw the new conquest as a way to increase his personal wealth and gain inside information on a Fortune 500 company. Reading revealed that within 2 years maximum the woman involved would tire of the non-acceptance by family members, and his opportunistic ways. Reading indicated her next friend would be very out-going, out-doors type person who would be very sympathetic and comforting as he had found himself in the same type of situation.
3/16/2014 – “Marcia” Bradenton, Florida House Clearing
Marcia opened the door of her home, with such a solemn face, I was concerned that the house might be loaded with trouble. But fortunately only 1 spirit was detected in the home, a young man overdosed and died at the age of 27. Marcia and her children were very upset and uneasy for quite a few months. Cleared the house, and communicated to spirit the enormous options and opportunities that are out there and he need not remain there. Spirit was removed simply by rationalizing with him, and sending in guides to help him find his way. Home also had very dark residual energy from aggressive, abusive husband who hurt the lady of the house. Energy balance and cleaned. Counseled family on manifesting positive experiences in their life. Read for son and mother. Son was correctly identified as a highly intelligent individual with great left brain skills but also a big heart as well. Counseled on how to positively manifest what they wanted for themselves in their life.
3/12/2014 – “Debbie”, Indiana U.S.
Debbie had called for a reading before approximately one year ago when her significant other had committed suicide. She has been studying since then and has developed quite a talent for automatic writing and telepathy. It was her birthday, and apparently her husband in spirit wanted to make sure she had a birthday present and came through to her in her automatic writing and asked her to kindly call “Diane”. Her husband is a very friendly and loving spirit, and wanted her to receive some healing and direct communication. He told her how much he dearly loved her, and was concerned that if she kept grieving so that her physical health could be compromised. Also 1 month previous to this reading a dear friend had passed away called “Big Bill”. Bill had quite a sense of humor and had us all laughing in stiches throughout the reading. He assured her that he gave her husband a good talking to when he got up there – and read him the “riot act” for causing such a commotion with his decision. However they were the best of pals now, as the spirit Andy was showing him the ropes. Both were musicians and Bill laughed about how Andy was always “Flirting with Disaster” anyway (Southern Rock, Molly Hatchet song). Spirits noted they always were having a good time with electricity at her house. She acknowledged this by saying just the night before Andy had been clicking the furnace thermostat on and off, over and over and finally stopped when she asked. She also at Christmas time was able to capture a photograph of Andy during a walk in the snow. I will try to find that photo and attach it here.
3/6/2014 – “Nicole”, Manatee County Florida: Spirit Portal – Multiple Spirits Haunting House and Attachments
House plagued for years by orbs, moving objects, remote being thrown up in the air, knocking on bathroom door, and bed shaking numerous times. Basically the house sits in a portal area, which explains the severe haunting.
During an evening party 2 guests had a video cameras going, 2 cameras captured the same orb patterns as the out of body guests enjoyed celebrating the party.
Residents plagued by anxiety attacks, stomach problems, OBE sleep paralysis, and finally having enough they called me in.
Determined the principle spirit was a young man who was drinking and driving and caused two fatalities including his own in a vehicle accident. The man had a fundamentalist belief system in a definite heaven and hell, and did not want to move on because he was convinced he would be punished somehow. Spoke with spirit brought in team to let him know that all is forgiven even such things as that, and that there was nothing to be afraid of. He could go in peace. Brought in team of my own spirit guides to help converse with him and convince him of the infinite possibilities there were in the after life, and he need not fear and judgement per se. He was creating his own self-made hell and was merely acting out in order to get help out.
Another spirit active in the house was one from a past life that had been attached to a young woman in her 30’s since she was a little child. The spirit physically had pulled her by the ankles off the bed when she was 12. Reading revealed the spirit had passed on at an early age and was deeply in love with the girl as they knew each other from a past life. Instead of progressing he was attached to her. Therapy given to spirit letting him know of the possibilities of the infinite universe and he was not to bother her anymore. Guides took him away immediately and cleaned the house.
Resident also plagued by fast visions of spirit faces she didn’t know right before sleeping. Explained to her in a past life she was a religious leader of some type, and these visions were merely people who were coming to her for advice or prayer, and not to be afraid.
Same house boyfriend had passed away in one room, the room was noticeably cold at about 55 degrees with no air conditioning, and in Florida. The spirit was totally at peace and only provided love to his family, and thanked them for the Christmas Tree. It was March and a tree was still up near his bedroom. The family laughed in recognition, as he loved Christmas trees and that’s why they kept it up especially for him.
House was cleared through prayer, reasoning with the spirits, showing them their options and releasing them from the boredom of the astral plane.
As leaving one orb flew past me, and seemed to be thanking me.
Returned to home, after little girl reported a very tall spirit shadow – that would not leave. I connected with him and convinced him to move on with love and peace.
Another Spirit still remaining in the house as he had passed away in a bedroom there. Mother of home confirmed he was very aggressive and hostile. Spirit apologized profusely and said he was just waiting to be able to say he was sorry for creating such mayhem.
During the portal clearing numerous orbs were recorded on video tape as I gave the reading.
3/1/2014 – “Mary”, Melbourne, Australia
“Mary” had suffered an incredibly devastating 2 suicides in her family and circle of friends within two weeks. She was very concerned how they were doing and if they were suffering in any way. I scanned the situation, and in fact one fellow was still very much in shock and replaying the incident in his consciousness over and over. He could not leave that physical space. I reassured him that it would be alright, invited his past family members in and they reunited. He was over joyed that he didn’t have to suffer anymore, and his sister Mary was very relieved as well.
2/7/2014 – Isabelle, San Antonio, Texas
“Isabelle” is a young lady who was hurting very badly from her father’s recent suicide 3 months before. Reading confirmed he was being bullied and fought by 3 men in an ongoing argument that was leading to violence. Finally the constant torment was too much for him, and unfortunately he took his life. He told his daughter that he promised never to leave her side, and to protect her from unwanted advances or unsavory characters. A dear and kind loving man, his photo left me so sad, as I could see what great love he had and so much potential. He said he wanted to be there for her when she got married and had children of her own. He promised love is eternal and he would always look after her with gentle kindness.
2/3/2014 – Laura – Tulsa, Oklahoma
“Laura” is a lovely person who suffers from a painful physical condition. Her mother passed away about 1 year and a half ago, and Liz was very, very close to her mother. She lived with her, and they did everything together as a team. She had never lived alone before nor did she have a driver’s license. Her mother has coached and reassured her through many sessions. She let’s her know she is so very, very proud of her and all of her great accomplishments. Laura’s evolution and growth has been incredible over the past year and a half. She was able to get her own apartment, get her driver’s license, and purchase a car and also get a bonus all in one year. She was also no longer troubled by her passive aggressive siblings who tended to bully her. Readings confirmed they had drug abuse issues, and the father as well. Laura’s mom reassured her that she didn’t need to care about their opinions as they were disturbed individuals who were not very balanced. They also realized she was “freer” then them, as she was not tied to marriage, and could be her own person. Through readings Liz has been recognized as an “angel on earth” who has come to experience such trials and tribulations so that she could help others overcome their disabilities and build their confidence. Laura is truly a miracle story who has learned not to be used by passive aggressive individuals or made to feel less than perfect.
2/5/2014 – Megan – Bradenton, Florida
“Megan” needed validation that the telepathic messages she received on a regular basis were real and not some type of emotional disturbance. As soon as she entered my front door, we both instantly “recognized” each other as good friends. Although we had never really met, it was as if I had known her forever.
She said at times her telepathic ability became so overwhelming she had to play music just to drown it out. Spirit advised that she was indeed extremely intuitive and not to be embarrassed by her gift. Her soul was very lovely and gentle, and she just needed to know that she was ok and perfectly fine. Her family had taken her to doctors who tried to explain the condition as some sort of psychological disorder. But she indeed was quite relieved to find out it was perfectly normal for her. I even tested her and she scored 100% on accuracy. An amazing lovely young lady, she left smiling confident in her abilities and no longer feeling odd because she could pickup on other’s thoughts before spoken.
1/25/2014 – Sarah – London, England, United Kingdom
“Sarah” emailed quite distraught over her younger brother’s suicide just two weeks prior. The reading revealed he was certainly quite terrified at the time he took his life, and unfortunately could not find balance or peace on the other side. He was in a state of “non-being” in other words he couldn’t consciously will himself out of a very dark self-inflicted place. However I let him know gently that there is no punishment or repercussions only love and acceptance on the other side. We create our own realities based on our beliefs. At that moment his Grandmother came to his side and embraced him with gentle love and told him he would be fine. He was astonished that I could hear what I was thinking and was very polite throughout the whole reading. When he wished to talk, he would say “excuse me”, and other such pleasantries. His sister was in the UK time zone, so after awhile it became quite late where she lives. So we switched over to Skype, where her brother wrote her lovely thoughts and wishes which really let her breathe such a sigh of relief. He thanked her over and over for his “send off party” as she planned the whole thing herself with his favorite music and friends, and thanked her very much for her tenderness and kindness.
Sarah very concerned that she wouldn’t have the peace of mind to be able to pass some very difficult examinations that were crucial to her academic success. Her brother reassured her over and over that he would do his best to help her if she hit a rough spot. The reading revealed he had a favorite, loyal pet. She confirmed this that he had a beautiful cat who comforted himself every night by climbing a mantle, and sleeping right beside her brother’s photo and urn.
2/5/2014- “Selina” – Argentina – Sarasota, Florida
This was a very difficult case with the only evidence being digital photos and scanning the mind of another person thousands of miles away. “Selina” had called before so troubled by her boyfriend’s apparently amorous activities in Argentina while she was in the U.S. Although very loving and caring, he had quite a way with the ladies. She demanded proof of what he was doing and showed pictures of potential friends. Usually I am not called upon to do these things, and was really quite reluctant – as I usually really don’t want to get involved in that kind of negative detective work. And I didn’t want to hurt him or her. But she was very insistent, Selina stated she had to have absolute proof otherwise she would look foolish flying to Argentina and asking him about such a delicate subject. One photo she provided did make a direct connection with energy that the young lady and he were together although she was married. The boyfriend felt his behavior was not out of the ordinary, and didn’t feel particularly guilty as it was a behavior learned from his father, and his father’s father. The reading revealed the time of his return home which matched what he had told her personally on the phone. Also his sister had recently asked to be friends with Selina on a social site, in which I told her to go ahead and accept. I advised to gently become friends and see if the sister could let her know the truth by her own words in a couple of months. This could giver her the final proof that Selina had so desperately wanted to know.
1/20/2014 – “John” – Bradenton, Florida
“John” went into a local emergency room complaining of severe abdominal pain. He was able to talk with the nurses and change into a hospital gown. But alas 15 minutes later when a nurse when to check on him, John was on the floor. He had passed away almost immediately. John’s good friends asked for a spiritual intervention so that he would be peaceful and clearly understand what had happened. They didn’t want him to be left in a state of shock and confusion. John reassured them by saying he at first really was shocked, but that he has many friends who had passed before him, and they are comforting him. He said they still tell the same bad jokes as they used to! He definitely was feeling better and thanked us for caring about him and checking on him. He also let us know he felt bad for the poor nurse who found him in that state. He didn’t want to scare or burden anyone.
1/17/2014- “Bridgette” – Manhattan, New York
“Bridgette” is the operations manager of a famous Buddhist retreat, which hosts His Holiness the Dalai Lama when he is in the area. One of her guests have taken pictures two years in a row at the retreat which are clearly spiritual in nature. Reading revealed it was a late teacher, a Rinpoche who was simply enjoying the quiet and solitude of the retreat, and wanted them to know proof positive that consciousness continues on.
11/3/2013- “Emily” – Chicago Illinois Suburb
“Emily” was very distraught over the loss of her mother. Emily was extremely sad thinking that the one day she did not go to the house, her mom passed. Reading confirmed that her mother wished to pass on a day that she was not there, and her spirit had planned for this with specific intent. However the daughter was being too hard on herself believing if she would of been there her mother would be ok. Her mother reassured her that this was not the case, and that it was time for her to go. Mother counseled client on how to handle quite troublesome siblings who unfortunately suffered from alcoholism and drug addiction. Siblings were creating a lot of distress for Emily as the family farm and estate had already been divided fairly, but yet they were irrationally and continually asking for more in addition to trying to force Emily to sell her mother’s home. Spirit advised on these delicate matters and assured her that she would stay by her side and watch over her.
1/10/2014 – “Mary” – Maine
“Mary’s” mother had just recently passed. Reading confirmed the condition that caused her passing. Her mother was delighted to tell her all that she was experiencing on the other side and that she was perfectly enjoying herself. Reading revealed why a particularly bothersome relative had hurt Mary so much during her life. Despite wealth, position and power the relative relentlessly bullied and tormented Mary, her immediate family and disrupted many other lives through a highly powerful government position. She revealed that now that she is in spirit, she knows her behavior was wrong, and was the unfortunate result of abuse as a child on many levels. Spirit let her know she was being counseled by other guides to learn how simple words can destroy or change a person’s destiny or self-confidence forever. The spirit apologized profusely for her terrible behavior which brought some healing for a wound that had been hurting both women for nearly 55 years. The root cause of the shocking negative behaviors and constant state of competitiveness came out in the reading, and the client confirmed that the rationale did make sense. A granddaughter was showing similar anti-social, hurtful behavior. Spirit confirmed that she indeed shared the gene that carried the same disorder, should be evaluated, and parents encouraged to give full attention at once.
1/8/2013 – Gail – Sarasota, Florida :
“Gail” and her two daughters came in for a reading. Reading revealed some animosity between her and her husband. But Gail understood her ex-husband’s behavior, accepted his apology and let him know that all was forgiven. Spirit encouraged her to begin enjoying life again, to take up writing and finally life the life she really wanted to live. The daughters were pleased to hear their father speaking using the same type of vocabulary and attitude he had in life. Spirit confirmed that they were more precious to him than any diamond, any amount of money, or anything in the world. He loved them with all of his heart. He confirmed it was he who was causing certain songs to be played on the radio, lights going on and off, etc. The family took solace in knowing he was doing well and still had his prankster sense of humor.
12/23/3013 “Carol” – Palm Beach, Florida
“Carol” had tragically lost her son through an accidental overdose. Two families were racked with guilt thinking there was something they could of done. Spirit reassured them it was no one’s fault but his, and not to waste their precious lives thinking incorrectly. A great amount of healing was performed for Carol, her husband, the spirit’s wife, and siblings, and his own young son who at 8 months recognizes the energy of “Da Da” whenever he comes to visit.
10/19/2013 – “Charles” – Chicago, Illinois
“Charles” is a highly spiritual and educated person. He is extremely knowledgeable on a variety of belief systems. Highly intriguing it was clear from the start his reading would be at a very high level.
(He is comfortable with attending the Catholic church, Buddhist temples, and works quite closely with Native American spirituality)
He called me, two weeks after his mother had passed on. He wanted to verify that those places of worship and guidance he regularly attends were worthy for him to go to. In spirit, his mother pointed out very clearly those that were authentic and genuine.
He asked her if she could feel the prayers that were being sent to her by his church and other groups. Spirit confirmed in reading.
She could literally feel the combination of prayers sending her peace and love from several sources and spiritual practice centers as being worthy. Correctly described the physical ailment that his mother succumbed to that Doctors just couldn’t stem.
10/5/2013 – “Bridgette” – San Diego California
“Bridgette” was still suffering greatly from her brother’s suicide. A loving and tender man, he was besieged in life by a family that was under great emotional strain and substance abuse. Correctly diagnosed bipolar disorder as the main triggering event along with chronic depression. The brother told her that she had something she shouldn’t be keeping and implored her to get rid of it. Turns out she had been keeping a stone from the river he had been found in. He told her to go out and treat herself to something more beautiful and positive as a gift and that when she saw the “right thing” it would immediately resonate with her. It wasn’t necessary to burden herself by keeping such a symbol of her brother’s death.
On an update received in 1/2014 Bridgette shared a photo of her brother in spirit form taken while she was walking through their wooded home area.
10/1/2013 – “Steven” – Venice, Florida
“Steven” wanted to connect with his mother, father and other family members who had all passed away previously. He said he felt more or less alone except for his own wife and two daughters. He brought with him a treasured Indian arrowhead. Correctly identified the state where it came from and the story behind it.
He was looking for guidance from his family, and received precise words of wisdom from his mom, dad, grandmother, and an uncle who tragically had committed suicide on his birthday. The uncle, who had been stuck literally since passing was quite remarkable. Although his untimely death had occurred well over 10 years, he was still bound in the astral plane, besieged with repetitive guilty thoughts and a self-created negative place. He was afraid to go on, but knew he didn’t want to stay where he was. We talked at length to him, and Steven was given advice to send his uncle love and positive thoughts so that he could move on. Steven’s chosen soul circle – the core group in which he was born would continue to help him in everyday life matters and also assist the uncle to heal and be at peace so he could evolve.
9/12/2013 – “Justin” – Long Island, New York – Anna Maria Island, Florida
“Justin” is a very hard working, and incredibly bright man. Despite being very strong physically, he has a tender heart. Unfortunately he suffered greatly as a child from a dysfunctional family life which included some very, very serious issues. One of many difficulties he had to overcome was the fact that his brother for over 50 years had tormented and bullied him in just about every way possible.
I asked if he wouldn’t mind a reading, because his brother was making it very clear that he wanted to talk with Justin. He said he had never had one before, but he shrugged, and said, ” Sure why not”? So I gave him a reading on the spot. His brother let Justin know that in life, he always felt intimidated intellectually by him, and that somehow he wasn’t as “smart” as him. This combined with a severely disturbed family life created a very harsh emotional imbalance and misdirected anger. He let Justin know that he now knows his behavior was wrong, and he would take it back if he could. On the other side, he was being taken care of by numerous guides who were helping to heal him of his emotional trauma and troubles. He asked for forgiveness, and told him he was truly sorry and that he was going to be in a literal “spiritual time out” for awhile, as he healed and sorted out his various traumas. After the reading Justin felt some sense of relief, and closure on his brother’s torment. Since then Justin’s brother has not made a peep at night — and seems content that he could get his message across to his brother.
9/10/2013 – “Bridgette” – London, England – United Kingdom
“Bridgette” is a beautiful lady who despite her age of 70 reminded me of a spry 40 year old. She loves the Rolling Stones, and can rock and roll with the best of them. She has seen the Rolling Stones, quite a few times, and even saw them at Wimbley stadium in 1969. She herself wonders how Keith Richards is still such a magnificent musician and literally still standing. Her wheel chair was bedecked with hilarious bumper stickers, she was a real hoot to be with.
On the serious side, Bridgette was diagnosed two years ago with a critical illness with 6 months to live. The good news is she is so delightfully stubborn, and gifted with an incredible sense of humor that she has kept going on despite her medical diagnosis. For her 70th birthday her best friend and super helper, gave her the gift of a reading. The intent was to give Bridgette some insight as to what to expect after she leaves her body behind. The reason being that unfortunately the reality of organ failure is happening.
During her life her helper told me her spiritual beliefs were simple. She was an atheist. This is just fine with me, as a person’s spiritual belief is exactly what they need for this life and really is a completely personal choice. But in this system, she really had no built in spiritual expectations or as she put it “a golden ticket to the country club in the sky” – she needed a bit of guidance on what to expect upon her graduation from this earth.
So I let her know that she can relax, as I am affectionately known as the “Tour Guide to the Other Side“, especially for hospice patients. The reason being is that I’ve had a near death experience and can let them know there really is absolutely nothing to fear – and it’s actually a great relief to get rid of these old bag of bones when it’s time to go. That gave her a great belly laugh. So I gave her a detailed reading as to what to expect as she leaves her physical body behind. She was overjoyed to know that she had quite a gathering of friends and relatives awaiting her arrival and that they assured her she would have the best time ever!
After 70 years she only met her birth mother a couple of times. I assured her that her birth mother still loved her immensely and is waiting with great love and affection for when she passes. The healing was incredible when I was able to tell her that despite what Bridgette felt was pure rejection by her birth mother was actually a great gift of life.
Her birth mom gave her up actually with great reluctance and sorrow due to an impossible financial situation and WWII. I let her know that I did see her signing the adoption papers with tremendous sorrow and a heart wrenching cry – and there wasn’t a day that had passed when she hadn’t thought of her. I also let her know that by this great sacrifice, indeed her mother essentially saved her life. As she passed away soon after due to shrapnel from the war and the baby if close by, would most certainly of been mortally wounded if she had kept her in the same room.
The reading was amazingly powerful and healing, as this lifted over 60 years of pain and anguish for dear Bridgette. Thrilled to know how her birth mother really did love and miss her was incredibly healing. Her foster mom and birth mom assured her they would both be there for her and it would be a joyful reunion like none other. I also said her adoptive mother would be quite active and that she would have a beautiful fragrance of delightful violets about her. Which Bridgette was astounded by, since that was indeed her favorite flower.
Her helper was also concerned as they had grown very, very close throughout the years. And I reassured them that Bridgette was quite the prankster and would indeed be there just as she always has been only as a pure energy. The veil was quite thin, and they would still enjoy their movie time together and have a great blast pulling practical jokes. Energy is energy, it doesn’t die and it can be at more than one place at once.
9/9/2013 – “Maria” – Arlington, Virginia
“Maria” called very upset that her mother was critically ill in the hospital with an untreatable condition and seemed certain to pass. She wanted to connect with her father in spirit who assured her that she was not going to pass that day. He tried his best to assure her that mom would hang on until all unfinished business was taken care of. That she could have deep meaningful conversations with her that are very heartfelt and exactly the thing that one needs in order to let go with peace. I let her know she would have at least two weeks if not more and that it was always very typical for the person to have a “shining period” in which they have renewed energy and can communicate fairly well before they pass. Her father laughed and said: “Believe me honey, this train is always going back and forth and there is no schedule for goodness sake.” So Maria took great heart in this and knew she would have plenty of time to talk with her mom and say her loving goodbyes with dignity and grace.
Her father assured her that he has “set up everything” as best as he can, and prepared a place for her to feel very comfortable with. They had been married 60 years, and he had just passed away one year ago. So he was very emphatic he wouldn’t let his wife come over alone – and he would meet her with great love and compassion.
He told her to continue to contact a person by his exact name, which floored the client. She had just finished talking to him, and he recently lost his mother and could be of great relief to her in the coming days of grief and sadness.
9/9/2013 – “Uma, and Lisa” – Long Island, New York, and Sarasota, Florida
Sisters on a visit to their a family second home in Sarasota, Florida asked for a reading from their father who recently had passed. The father was very sweet but had quite the advice for his daughter. The daughter apparently was with a man who had some of the darkest energy I’ve ever witnessed. He was not trustworthy, and I saw symbolically he had her hands tied in a no-win situation. It was big trouble. He was indeed after her wealth. She confirmed this. The father called him an out and out “Schmuck” and that she should lawyer up with even 3 lawyers and take him out of the picture. The women gave no exact details, but confirmed that this was indeed the situation and that they really needed advice from their father as to how to handle it. He let them know over and over, that he would give him a good swift kick if he could, and he deserved it. They laughed with recognition and confirmed the message completely. The father urged them to take a day of pampering at the “Met” on St. Armands Key which is quite a beautiful day spa. He said go ahead and do what you girls want to, “It’s on me”. Which had them in stitches laughing because apparently it really was on him. Very funny and great gals. I enjoyed this reading very much.
9-7-2013 – “Prosenjit” – Bangalore, India
I woke up at 2:00 am feeling out of sorts, and that indeed something was wrong. I went online, and sure enough a friend of mine happened to be online. He messaged me that he was feeling very down hearted. So I used the chat mechanism on the website and proceeded to give him an automatic writing from halfway around the world courtesy of his Grandmother.
She spoke very rapidly and usually I only get telepathic thoughts and symbols, but in this case I could actually hear her language at times. I asked about it, and he said it was a language specific to their area and is quite quickly spoken. She assured him that he was being taken care of by both her and his grandfather, and they were symbolically spreading a path of flower petals to make his journey and working life easier.
The client confirmed when the reading revealed that he had a very thick headed boss, who favored the ladies. The boss was also actually incompetent, or at least not as smart as Prosenjit and actually felt threatened by his intellect and would become quite defensive, and when projects fell apart would try to escape his role as the leader. Also a pretty strong symbol came in of his boss selecting work shoes, but only opening boxes with pink high heels. I was hesitant to mention this, but Prosenjit said he could hardly believe it. He never had told anyone of this. It was his boss’s habit to frequently hire women without even interviewing them or making sure of their skills for such a high tech job with an internationally known Fortune 500 company. I let him know that the higher ups in the other countries that were managing the team were indeed taking note of this person and would soon make a move.
Several days later Prosenjit messaged excitedly that the person on the team was leaving and was quite upset that he had to give a “knowledge transfer” to his managers, in which he wouldn’t have the slightest idea of what technology or knowledge to even talk of.
3 months later the client wrote to let me know that each prediction came to pass in startling detail and that he was now enjoying a new position in the company and ready to marry his lovely bride.
8/12/2013 – “Anna” – Sarasota, Florida
“Anna” is a wonderful young client, who loved her father very much. It was the anniversary of his passing. During the reading for her father it was detected that he was quite evolved spiritually. Although a man of great humility, he had quite a positive influence and was beloved by people both on this side and the other. She confirmed that he had a great following of friends and people were drawn to him from all walks of life. He was capable of understanding levels of consciousness that most cannot even fathom, let alone articulate. His wisdom was profound, and his soul a pleasure to communicate with.
8/8/2013 – “Shannon” – Reno, Nevada
“Shannon’s” husband had taken his own life. Despite serious physical trauma, he wanted to assure her that he felt no pain at the time of passing. His soul had already left the body at the time of the incident. She was relieved to know this. He felt his physical body was no longer representative of the real “him” and told her to not to be too disturbed by the incident if humanly possible. He loved her with all of his heart, and gently asked for her forgiveness. Both parties healed during the session, and he let her know deeply that his true intent was not to hurt her but rather relieve her of the burden of his ongoing struggle with substance abuse. She stated in a follow up session that she was starting to feel at peace, and had slept through the night for the first time in at least one month. She was very grateful and was able to “breathe” again.
8/5/2013 – “Barbara” – Sarasota, Florida
“Barbara’s” mother had just passed away in June, and she was longing to hear from her. She was very, very close to her mom and loved her dearly. During the reading, just as in life, her mother was also quite loving, and so warm hearted. She immediately let her daughter know that all was going quite well and that her father had been there to meet her. In the reading it was detected that “Barbara” felt somewhat guilty by distancing herself from those members of the family who had been acting in a selfish and uncompassionate manner. The mother stated she was correct to protect herself from negative influences, and that she had the undeniable right to allow only those in her life that she wanted. If people were not a positive, and only were “on the make” it was perfectly acceptable to distance herself and to give them more than the will had stated, out of “guilt” would be incorrect.
Barbara as it turns out is quite an animal lover, and she asked her father who was also in spirit if he could see the animals who had gone previously. He exclaimed YES! It’s like a zoo up here! She laughed and said it sounded exactly like him. This made her very happy to know her little friends also had their own spiritual energy and would indeed greet her with great love upon her return “home”.
Her mother and father had a hard time of it in the early years, and always wanted their children to have the best. So as a parting gift her mother let her know that she would surprise her with some play money of some type. Her mother insisted that if she felt like playing with those “scratch off ticket things” to give it a try. Now this even made me skeptical, because usually this is a strict no-no that is never mentioned in readings. But at the end of the reading her mom insisted. Two days later Barbara called me back so excited, saying “Diane, Diane, You are never going to believe this in a million years! She stated that she had went to a local grocery store with a vending machine that sold scratch off tickets. There wasn’t anyone around at all, not even at the service desk. But yet there was a $10.00 credit on the machine. She thought to herself “Who the heck walks away from a $10.00 credit?” She thought this might be a sign from her mom, so she took a chance. Low and behold, she purchased a ticket with her free credit and won $100.00. We were both excited and thrilled that this event actually happened. I told her I was just as excited for her and that I wish it would of been for more. However, it still a great validating experience for the both of us!
8/1/2013 – “Megan” – Los Angeles, California
“Megan” is an independent film maker, and apparently is fairly well known for her work. When she called I could hear the shakiness in her voice, and that she was quite afraid. She had been psychologically traumatized and stalked by a group of 2-3 men for over six months. Frankly, I was amazed that she could stand it for so long. I asked her why she didn’t contact police or have a restraining order put in place by a judge. She said she did, but to no avail as she couldn’t positively identify who the individuals were. She finally reached the breaking point when she discovered they had connected a GPS tracking device underneath her car (discovered only by accident, when she was leaving her mother’s home, as it scraped off the car’s bottom on a speed bump.) The individuals in question were also seen waiting outside her mother’s home in a car, and worst of all had entered her own personal home as well. They moved just enough items to let her know that they had complete access. They also accessed her computer and read her emails. Of course she was quite justified in her genuine concern, and I counseled her to seek immediate protection.
The reading revealed the stalkers were actually a group of 3 people who had been paid a sum of $15,000 to make sure that Megan’s day to day life would be made miserable in return for a less than flattering film that she had made about someone. The reading revealed the reason they were so persistent, is that they had received half of the sum but would be paid in full when their “job” was complete. This was a very real threat and extremely dangerous. Alarmed I told her to contact a professional body guard agency familiar with working with celebrities, as it was obvious these individuals were serious. Also advised her to put in monitoring cameras with direct 24-hour link to a security firm at her home and her mother’s home. She was also advised to have her mother stay with her or elsewhere for the time being. She also was told to change her locks, passcodes and whatever else she could think of to feel secure.
Her other questions involved a person who was involved in a religious organization. At first she thought he was quite honorable, but he kept appearing coincidentally at her meditation retreats and seemingly was also following her. It could of been a feeling of coincidence because of the recent stalking, but I scanned the individual and let her know that he indeed had a reputation of taking advantage of his teaching role and was quite a noteworthy womanizer. She said that was absolutely true, and his record was shameful. She concurred and cancelled an upcoming retreat which she had heard he was planning on attending. She also was going to directly tell him to leave her absolutely alone, had no interest in him, and should that not deter him threaten to take it up with his superiors or the authorities.
7/24/2013 – “Sharon” – Casey Key, Sarasota – Florida
“Sharon” called for her first medium reading to help her understand and connect with her friend Sharon who had recently passed away from an accident. I met Heather at her home on Casey Key. The home was full of sadness and it was very evident that she was suffering greatly over the loss of her friend. Spirit confirmed her “incident” as she called it was probably a bit intentional. She let her friend know that she suffered terribly from depression and just simply couldn’t see the beauty in life at the end. Her friend confirmed this. Spirit said she had , a feeling she never did quite fit into this life, and the last few months were sad and overwhelming for here. Therefore Sharon fulfilled her own wish to leave this earth. Sharon was a very gentle soul during the reading and was very careful not to upset her friend. She only wanted to reassure her that in the after life, she felt an incredible sense of unconditional love and peace from a divine presence with no judgement.
Sharon was quite young and had a full of life of her with so much potential. Sharon let her dear friend know that she felt very close to her, and that she was the only person who really she felt she could tell anything without any hesitation. They were very close in their deep understanding of each other. The spirit was very reassuring to Greta. They indeed were true soul friends who deeply cared for one another and were known for their gentle teasing, hijinks and little adventures.
She offered great comfort in letting her how she was healed during her transition of her emotional and physical wounds. She was looking forward with great anticipation on a mutual project in which they would collaborate together on creating spectacularly beautiful books that would serve as her gift to her friend and others that were hurting. Her life mission was to help others overcome depression and find their divine grace once again. Her friend Greta was very happy with this idea and welcomed it wholeheartedly. Spirit also conveyed that she had already “found” an artist at Ringling School of Art who would somehow be able to create exactly the artistic vision she had, and also a symphony musician with the Sarasota Orchestra who could compose the music to beautifully written spiritually inspired lyrics. Her gift to her friend was to collaborate once again in a beautiful sharing and healing through creating these lovely little books and music. Spirit let Greta know that actually not only would it be healing and wonderful for the both of them, but for many others, and that it would help them both have a happier ending then just leaving things as they were. Spirit also kindly let her know about how to handle her personal affects such as ashes and how she would like to go up in an airplane and have her ashes spread across the ocean. She was very fond of vast open space, and large panoramic vistas. She wanted her ashes to be in that type of environment so her friend would think of her in that beautiful space free from pain and part of the full universe.
7/2/2013 – “Justin” – Sarasota, Florida
Reading revealed spirit had passed recently as a result of an accidental overdose after returning from vacation. Wife confirmed this was indeed the case. Particularly sensitive and tragic case which struck very close to the heart, in that he was just recently married and had only known his son for 6 months of his life. This beautiful young couple were suffering terribly. The incident had just happened. He assured her that his family would make sure she wouldn’t need to worry and also gave advice on some personal matters.
Particularly noteworthy is that three exact names came up within the reading and also the nature of his business. Usually names are quite difficult to discern as the energy isn’t the same as an action or emotionally charged event.
Noted that his baby son was waking up in the deep of night, giggling and waving to an area of the room where there was no physical person. Mother confirmed this was happening. Spirit related that it was indeed daddy coming to visit. His father expressed great pride in his son, noting that all parents think their children are special — but in this case he is truly is exceptional. The son will begin to show signs of great clarity and insight at a highly evolved level. On a lighter note, spirit shared he loved to tickle his son. Wife confirmed her son was extremely ticklish. He also loved to show his son bedtime stories by creating imagery in his mind of loving, and fun childhood stories.
Justin reassured his wife that he was always with her, and on the astral level still couldn’t believe that such a thing happened. He thought it was indeed unfair. He had many plans for his life and family, and was successful in business. Went deeper into the soul level and read for her the higher reason for the passing. Indeed his spirit was compelled to a deeper mission to try his best to join a group of many souls who are gathering to help safeguard the future of innocent beings who may be otherwise be harmed by those with misguided delusions of religious intolerance. He felt he could sacrifice his personal life, and beautiful wife and son in order to take on this great challenge and mission with thousands of other souls who were being similarly called. He noted that in doing so they could save literally hundreds of thousands of souls, and that it was this calling that he was drawn to.
As a follow up Justin’s mother and father also came in for a personal session with their son. Deeply hurt, and aching with pain over losing a son with such potential – he brought peace to soothe them and repeatedly let them know that it was no one’s fault but his own. He didn’t follow his doctor’s orders and therefore indeed it was his own doing. He asked them to please not waste their precious lives thinking if only…what if…is it my fault… questions, as it was meant to be and he wanted them to enjoy their lives not wasting it on pity or sadness.
6/30/2013 – “Jill” – New York, New York
Beautiful young woman tragically, and mistakenly overdosed on Xanax and alcohol. Spirit comforted Mother, Aunt, and Godmother and let them know it was indeed quite a terrible accident, and that she really hadn’t intended to take her own life. It was simply a matter of a chemical imbalance which resulted in a confused state of mind, with exacerbating symptoms of clinical depression. She was not clear or cognitively aware of the implications of what was happening and stated very gently but repeatedly it was indeed an accident. She reassured family members that under normal circumstances she would of never considered such a measure. She stated that she wished they could all heal and help one another as a group. They should grieve as much and as long as needed. But finally them must give themselves permission to live life once again. She under no circumstances would want them to continually repeat the event, nor ruin their lives by feeling guilt or remorse that was something completely out of their control. Family members and young woman’s spirit felt positive healing results that come with the wisdom of understanding and forgiveness.
6/15/2013 – “Mark” – Bradenton, Florida
“Mark” had experienced the unfortunate and traumatic experience of his father’s life being taken by another over 10 years ago. Mark came to my home at the advice of his girlfriend who could tell he needed to heal from this past experience, so that he might heal and be able to carry on with his life. The reading revealed the passing was by a large gun, and was particularly traumatic due to suicide/murder. He quietly acknowledged that this was indeed the case.
The father reassured him that it was alright, and relayed the long secret details of why it occurred. The father’s spirit expressed great pride in his son.
The reading revealed his son was quite adept at helping keep young people on the right path, and was particularly excellent at coaching. He was also very good at social work/counseling. The young man confirmed this by letting me know he was considering a degree in social work. The son expressed some remorse at using his inheritance for enjoyment, but the father reassured him that was what it was for. And jokingly replied, that he had no use for the money where he was.
Reading also revealed a physical problem with a young woman in the lower parts of the abdomen. His girlfriend confirmed this during the reading. The reading brought up that she had fibrous growths within the fallopian area. She confirmed she was diagnosed with this through sonogram.
Reading revealed she didn’t care for the Doctor that much. She confirmed. The reading brought forth it was very important for her to continue to seek medical attention for the growths. She affirmed that she would do so. As reading also suggested that she may wish another child in the future and that she should take care of her physical well-being. She shyly replied that this was indeed the case.
6/12/2013 – “Theresa” – Bradenton, Florida
Spirit provided comfort to daughter to let her know how he passed and conditions that lead up to a motorcycle accident that unfortunately took his life. He let her know, it was indeed purely an accident and was caused by imperfections in the road. He let her know that he liked to show himself to her in the form of butterflies. She was quite happy about that because she had been seeing so many lately. Also he especially thanked her for keeping a very special letter he had hand written to her when she was 18.
She was elated to find out it was indeed her father – because she asked for proof that it was him. Although the spirit was not as strong as some, he suddenly exclaimed “french fries”. This made her very happy, as when she was two years old and in the hospital, her father had brought in french fries to make her happy. He also had owned a McDonald’s previously. She expressed the desire to know how to talk with him as she has many questions that have gone unanswered. Provided counseling on how to do so.
6/13/2013 “Jeannie” – Port Charlotte, Florida
Jeannie had experienced two traumatic deaths of loved ones. Her husband and very close cousin of Boston died as a result gun fire. However despite the manner in which the two individuals passed within two months of each other – they were very much at peace and “having a great time”. Her cousin and her husband had joined together in the spirit world and were quite happy go-lucky. They were very much at peace, and let her know they would definitely help her with some major life decisions she was working on.
Her husband was full of love and was so strong that he was immediately detectable. In fact the spirit was able to project himself to the point where I could feel his “hand” warm my left arm. During the reading I let her know that my arm was really being touched. She asked is it your left arm? I said yes, and she said well he must be here now because now my left arm is warm! He reassured her that there is indeed a heaven that paralleled his Christian beliefs. He said that he was immediately whisked away and comforted by Jesus, and he told her that it was really beautiful and his transition was full of love. He also had total forgiveness for the person who took his life. He told her a key sentence that provided proof positive it was indeed her husband. She asked how much do you love me? The answer: “As big as the world”.
She was overcome with great happiness and excited because these were the exact words he used to explain his feelings towards her. Spirit confirmed he was watching over her and the baby. Baby has shown recognition of her father’s spirit several times.
5/10/2013 Scott – United States Naval Veteran – Bradenton, Florida
“Scott” had been given a reading as a birthday gift. This wonderful elderly gentleman was very much grieving the loss of his lovely wife of 50 years. His wife was friends with the woman who was instrumental in developing the hospice movement. In fact he brought in an autographed copy of her book inscribed to his wife. Her name was Elisabeth Kübler-Ross.
His wife came in as a beautiful spiritual energy and reassured him that she loved him so very much, and that their love is eternal. She expressed how grateful she was for his loving care and she missed their special times together. She let him know that he should try his best to try and get out of the house and rediscover life again. He confirmed this saying that he was pretty much house bound and depressed. She told him that she was always with him and just “really really loved her husband”. Dear Scott was a tough man and his tears of sadness over the loss of his wife, were so overwhelming. But he came away with irrefutable proof that their is life after death, and his wife confirmed so many events that had occurred in their life. She also assured him that she was making a beautiful home for them so that when he came over everything would be perfect and as it should be.
Elisabeth Kübler-Ross, M.D. (July 8, 1926 – August 24, 2004) was a Swiss American psychiatrist, a pioneer in near-death studies and the author of the groundbreaking book On Death and Dying (1969), where she first discussed her theory of the five stages of grief.
She is a 2007 inductee into the American National Women’s Hall of Fame. She was the recipient of twenty honorary degrees and by July 1982 had taught, in her estimation, 125,000 students in death and dying courses in colleges, seminaries, medical schools, hospitals, and social-work institutions. In 1970, she delivered the The Ingersoll Lectures on Human Immortality at Harvard University, on the theme, On Death and Dying.
5/5/2013 Elsie – Siesta Key, Sarasota Florida, Toronto Canada
“Elsie” called distraught about her husband’s true intentions. Usually I try to stay within the realm of mediumship, but she was very hurt and needed help. During the reading correctly identified the individual he was seeing, and the motivation behind the actions. Also helped to bring peace from suffering caused by, and brought perspective to the situation and advice on the best path for her. Afterwards the client called again from Toronto, Canada and confirmed he had been less than truthful. He was seeing a high power executive in a Fortune 500 company. They were going on “business trips” together, and was having a mid-life crisis including facelift, hair transplants, etc. He later admitted he was troubled by the early passing of his sister, which made him feel as though he should live for the moment. In doing so he unfortunately lost his loving wife and two children as they are no longer together. He was indeed ruthless and the reading let her know that he was hiding financial resources that could help her and her two children. She was also given the advice to have everything signed, and sealed, and witnessed – as he would do his very best to be less than amiable.
3/7/2013 Ryan of Reno Nevada
Well there really is no better testimonial than the spirit manifesting themselves while their reading is being played. Here we have energy orbs of “Ryan” a young 17 year old who recently passed from traumatic circumstances. This video was produced by his sister while her mother listened to the CD of her live reading that I had mailed to her. These orbs are coming in during this exact time. In addition they have filmed him over and over constantly moving one vertical blind in his mom’s room. He does this especially when detectives are close on the case, or friends are hurting. They also filmed another one and called it Orbs Part 2. But this is the only video that is on Youtube.com. Be patient, until you can hear my voice on the recording saying “Well it’s about time we wrapped this up, etc.” After this you will see orbs go whizzing past and the young woman that is video taping it is obviously reacting directly to the phenomenon. Ryan is a very friendly and lovely spirit, who was a compassionate and wonderful person. He still is quite a dynamo and loving dad who watches over his family with great love.
2/23/2013 Channeling of Lobsang Namgyal, Tibetan Buddhist Monk – Lhasa, Tibet (21 days in the Bardo state of spirit)
As a result of political unrest in Tibet, I channeled over 4,000 words on audio tape then transcribed the information in this very serious and timely encounter. After praying to dear Lobsang after his brave passage, he came in and exactly talked in a way specific to Tibetans with phrasing and intonation. (Naturally the world of telepathic thought is international. So no need to translate from Tibetan.) He was the 100th Tibetan monk who quite desperately and tragically take their own lives by self-immolation. This is being done in shocking frequency, as Tibet tries to let the world know about the genocide that is happening there at the hands of the PRC. This kind monk was soft spoken, extremely articulate, and channeled perfectly. He slowly spoke so I was sure to get every word.
He defined the conditions of Tibet in exact detail, and why such turmoil is causing the monks to take this drastic action. It has also been deemed highly authentic, and very probable by world renown scholar Robert Thurman. Robert Thurman is the first American ordained by H.H. the Dalai Lama, was honored by Time magazine as one of America’s 25 most influential people. He is the Je Tsongkhapa Professor of Indo-Tibetan Buddhist Studies at Columbia University, holding the first endowed chair in this field of study in the United States. He also is the co-founder and president of the Tibet House New York and is active against the People’s Republic of China’s control of Tibet.
- Roger Woolger, British-American psychotherapist, lecturer, and author specializing in past life regression and soul trauma healing.
2/18/2013 Roger Woolger Ph.D. – Jungian Psychotherapist – Sarasota, Florida and Beyond.
Usually I don’t put down real names here, but somehow I don’t think Roger would mind. (With his kind permission, I reveal a bit here. He is in spirit and such a brilliant dynamo!) I channeled him for his close friend and working partner who was missing him and wanted to have some healing closure. His work is considered to be ground-breaking and quintessential in the world of psychotherapy. He was educated at the University of Oxford and King’s College London, where he gained degrees in psychology, religion, and philosophy. He then trained as an analyst at the C. G. Jung Institute in Zürich. An amazing man he lived and worked around the world with residences in New Paltz, New York, Paris. and Salvador, Brazil. Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roger_Woolger He worked with hundreds of patients, and also produced lectures on past life regression, and healing past trauma. Much to my surprise, he was also connected to Robert Thurman. Robert Thurman was the first American ordained by the Dalai Lama, and is considered the world’s foremost expert on Tibetan Buddhism, and teaches at Columbia to this day. Tenzin Bob is a friend of whom I had the pleasure of helping to get his work published in Taiwan on “Why the Dalai Lama Matters”. (Opps I am digressing aren’t I?)
During his reading Roger was a real hoot. He proudly announced they were both “perfectly capable of picking up each other’s thoughts, but I was welcome to give it a go.” With his dry Oxford England humor he had us both laughing in stitches…but more importantly, some wonderful healing occurred between the two life long friends. One of my most favorite readings ever, I immediately wanted to know more about their work. So thanks to the internet I now am a proud owner of “Other Lives, Other Selves, a Jungian Psychotherapist Discovers Past Lives”, and “Healing your Past Lives.” If you are suffering from physical pain, or certain blockages that are explainable it can indeed be from soul trauma from previous lives. Fascinating insights!
1/15/2013 “Jill” of Long Island, New York
Mother had passed away suddenly at a young age, just after the daughter had graduated from medical school. The daughter was also a newlywed and was getting reading to start her family. Deeply saddened that her mother would not be there to share her life, the daughter was very depressed. Reading revealed that they had had previous lives together and their bond was extremely strong so much so that neither felt complete without the other. Mother revealed that she loved her daughter very deeply, and gave clues as to how the daughter could tell when mom was about. The mother consented to her daughter’s deepest wish to see if she might consider reincarnation, so that they could meet again in this lifetime.
1/28/2013: “Mary” of Sarasota, Florida
A complex reading involving 6 family members who had passed on throughout the years. Reading from father’s spirit was particularly heart warming and he was a brilliant man and judge. A brother who was an attorney, had unfortunately conspired to keep the client out of a family inheritance. Identified personality of young grandson as a particularly evolved spiritual soul who has come to this life to help others. He although still very young at 5 years of age showed signs of past life memories and gave a name of a close friend who served in WWII that were proven correct and authentic.
The reading correlated what was provided to the client by renown psychic Siliva Browne and others. Provided healing and psychological profile/rationale as to why the mother had acted insensitively towards the daughter, and had hurt her emotionally and her son as children. Identified cause of passing of husband as a result of car mishap that was emotionally triggered, and relayed spirit’s feelings as to why he felt he couldn’t continue on. Also identified a brother who had physically hurt others and suffered from alcoholism. Brought healing to client as she realized in his comments to her that he was not communicating as a fully aware individual.
1/24/2013: “Susan and Bill” of Malibu, California
A young couple came in for a live reading. Reading was for her father who had passed away. He was a particularly brilliant man who loved to tinker with items and engineering. Correctly identified his passion for inventing and making things, and that he was sorry he left “such a mess of stuff”. The daughter laughed saying it was ok, that it was taken care of. In actuality the spirit himself didn’t believe in mediums, and joked sarcastically throughout the reading – which was pretty ironic, since I was talking with him and recanting his specific thoughts. The daughter wanted to make sure he felt no pain during his time at hospice. He gave her relief in knowing he could not perceive pain, if he had any discomfort it was quickly dispelled, and he slipped in and out of this life with glimpses of the next world.
Correctly picked up on male friend’s highly evolved spiritual nature and how he would be very instrumental in upcoming times and has helped many in the past. He had an uncanny ability to sense when people needed trouble and through specific actions and words he was able to intercede upon their behalf. Identified mother suffering from Alzheimer’s, and other illness and the late husband’s concern for her health. Provided the daughter with insight as to why this particular person had developed Alzheimer’s, as a way of cleansing the memories of this life. As she had spent the majority of her life unfortunately in a very negative state of mind, and had unfortunately hurt many and wanted a fresh start in the next life.
12-31-2012: “Julie” of Boston, Massachusetts
Woman was distraught over the fact her husband took his life in front of her. He was a loving and generous, well-liked man. People enjoyed his companionship and company. His spirit revealed that once you were his friend you were always a friend. But unfortunately his charm and kindness had unintentional consequences: that of breaking up relationships. Identified correctly as a young boy he endured extended periods of time alone on a hospital ward, separated from his parents. Waiting for them to return, he never fully emotionally recovered. Thus when he grew into adulthood, he intensely loved others in order that he could feel their love in return. Reading revealed he did suffer from split-personality syndrome which was confirmed by the client. His behavior was not the result of a fully aware personality, and he wasn’t logically able to understand his own behavior at all times.
His suicide was not meant as an act against his wife, but a result of psychological disorder of which the depths of it were so strong, his could not be understood by himself. He had not evolved on as he was still healing in spirit. But was being helped by many spiritual guides who were helping him through his case.

10/3/2012 “Mary” of Australia and her Mother in England
Successfully brought in very shy spirit of father who passed away a number of years ago. The reading was a birthday gift for her mother. Also reassurance and verification of correct spirit through identification of terminal illness, home area during her childhood, also detected poetry in wallet, that he had selected himself out of the newspaper for his funeral after suffering from his illness, and his favorite song in which his mother was singing directly before the daughter called to England about the results of the reading.
10/17/2012 “Vicky” of Sarasota, Florida
Correctly identified cause of death of suicide victim, and relieved pain of family member who had been suffering for 6 months from unrelenting guilt and pain. Also identified potential serious cardiac problem as a result of the family member feeling such grief for such a period of time. If not identified, the family member would have definitely had a serious cardiac health issue as the result of truly a broken heart.
10/5/2012 “Kelly” of Sarasota, Florida
Correctly identified cause of death of her son due to drug overdose. Identified kidney stone problem with one scan, and muscular disorder was temporary and related to depression and anxiety over death of son.

10/15/2012 “Marisha” of New Orleans, Louisiana
Correctly identified cause of death for homicide victim. Reconnected spirit with the mother and his 10 month old child. The spirit conveyed a deep love for his deepest friend and mother of his child, and promised to stand by them as a guardian angel forever and to “do right by them.”. He also offered a way to help them financially. He kindly provided advice on how mother could connect with his family on a deeper level. Results of reading: Client reported a much-needed job promotion and the 10 month old child is now saying his first words of “da-da” out loud when no one is visually present, apparently recognizing his father in spirit. Also the child is showing unique behavioral characteristics of the father.
10/22/2012 “Sarah” of Sarasota, Florida
Helped an adult who had suffered from severe child abuse and trauma. Helped them to understand their parent’s behavior, correctly identified that the parent in question was an alcoholic who also suffered from manic depression and was not capable of understanding their actions. Helped client to overcome feelings of being stuck in deep depression and come to terms with rediscovering their life and understand that they deserved love and to pamper themselves. Spirit was able to free themselves from guilt and pass on above this level to higher dimensions. Client was unclear as to why they would have to endure such pain, past-life regression brought about rationale for the lessons of this life.
10/24/2012 Cathy, Denise and four others Group Reading Bradenton, Florida
Helped identify previous tenants were haunting apartment. The apartment was seriously disturbed with pictures falling off the walls, and upsetting visual disturbances and a room that no one dared to enter as it never felt comfortable for them. The reading revealed a couple who had passed through tramatic circumstances. Both were devout Catholics and the husband was convinced he should not go on as he thought he would be punished for what he had done. After much talking with, he finally felt reassured that he did what he thought was right and merciful, and it was ok to leave the apartment. In another unrelated incident but a young woman in the same group was distraught that she could of done something to save her mother from death. The mother reassured her that she had already been gone for an hour or two, and that CPR etc. would not help in this case. The young woman asked if the mother had anything to say to her, and she immediately said that she should do what young people do, go to Disney World and have fun. The daughter affirmed that her mother really was passionate about Disney World. The deceased also stated clearly”Weebles Wobble but they don’t fall down.” Which brought about great delight as this is exactly what her mother had told her when the daughter was with child before. The young woman said does this mean what I think it means? I let her know that all I saw was a crib. She smiled in quiet confirmation.
11/10/2012 “Mark” Las Vegas, Nevada.
Mark called overcome with grief as his mother had just passed away, and seeing a white hearse that day reminded him of the painful memory. Correctly confirmed that his mother had a beautiful smile that just immediately lit up a room. He said that she was known for that, and she really did have a wonderful smile. She encouraged him to move out of a troubled neighborhood that he currently lives in. He confirmed saying that she always disliked where he lived that it wasn’t the good part of Las Vegas. During the reading she voiced that he was a very compassionate person and always went out of his way to help others feel better. She revealed the names of two individuals that would help him find his way, and would help support him financially and that he was a very spiritual person. His true calling was to be a minister. He affirmed this by saying this what he had always wanted, and the names she gave him were indeed the exact names of two people in his church who would be very much interested in helping him reach his life goals.
12/12/2012 “Becky” Tampa, Florida
Young adult had overdosed on opiates. Correctly identified the cause of death of her son and that it was definitely not intentional. Overcome with sadness and guilt because she did not return a blistering flurry of texts the night he passed away, she just wanted to know if there was anything she could of done to stop it. He told her, no not really it was just an accident he just miscalculated the lethal affects of what he was taking. It was simply an overdose. Identified the time span that their lives had been in turmoil due to drugs and she confirmed the time span was correct. The spirit was concerned that other friends of his would meet a similar demise and wanted his job on the other side to help stop more needless overdoses as it was becoming an epidemic in this country. He identified specific individuals and what they were doing, and hoped she would reach out to them specifically one who was in immediate trouble. Also the reading revealed his brother was having some thoughts of suicide and was having a difficult time grieving from the loss of his brother. Encouraged intervention.
12/20/2012 “Sally” Charlotte, North Carolina.
Close friend unfortunately committed suicide with a weapon, as a result of emotional pain and withdrawal from substance abuse. Correctly identified that he was a very spiritual and bright person. She confirmed by stating he wanted to go to medical school, and he was particularly brilliant when it came to biology and molecular structures. Also she confirmed his spirituality by stating he also dreamed of studying theology. He was very keen on religious studies and took copious notes and questioned his teachers intently on spirituality. Despite a bright mind and beautiful personality, he was simply overwraught by emotional pain inflicted on him by his father for years.
He was sorry that she had to witness the physical scene of his suicide. Advised her correctly to remove certain items from the home that were not wise to keep, as they represented negative memories. Including clothing of victim she had kept and a necklace he used when “scoring” drugs. Spirit wished her to go back to normal life, pick up the pieces and try to have some fun. His one wish was to watch it’s a Wonderful Life, the famous Christmas movie during the week of Christmas with her.
He promised he would be there with her and share the movie with her. He also presented her with a “gift” to help her overcome her grief. His cat that had disappeared completely at the time of his death for weeks, was found by an acquaintance lost in the woods. The friend called the companion, described the cat and it was indeed his. The kitty cat now lives with his companion, comforting her during the holidays and a gentle reminder of their loving relationship.
Later in the year I received a holiday card from his friend thanking me so much for the reading. She was receiving automatic writing messages from him just about everyday. And she also had a photograph she wanted to share of him walking with her on a winter’s day in 2014.
“God is more than the sum of all the probable systems of reality He has created, and yet He is within each one of these, without exception. He is therefore within each man and woman. He is also within each spider, shadow, and frog, and this is what man does not like to admit.
God can only be experienced, and you experience Him whether or not you realize it, through your own existence. He is not male or female, however, and I use the terms only for convenience’s sake. In the most inescapable truth, He is not human in your terms at all, nor in your terms is He a personality. Your ideas of personality are too limited to contain the multitudinous facets of His multidimensional existence.
…He forms your flesh in that He is responsible for the energy that gives vitality and validity to your private multidimensional self, which in turn forms your image in accordance with your own ideas. This private multidimensional self, or the soul, has then an eternal validity to your private multidimensional self, which in turn forms your image in accordance with your own ideas.
This private multidimensional self, or the soul, has then an eternal validity. It is upheld, supported, maintained by the energy, the inconceivable vitality, of All That Is.
It cannot be destroyed then, this inner self of yours, nor can it be diminished. It shares in those abilities that are inherent within All That Is. It must therefore, create as it is created, for this is the great giving that is behind all dimensions of existence, the spilling-over from the fountain of All That Is.”

Note: This is a channeled message. It is an s explanation is provided by Seth. This highly evolved being worked with Jane Roberts over a number of years writing many volumes of books explaining consciousness, reality, and how we form our own reality.
“Your consciousness leaves the physical organism in various ways, according to the conditions. In some cases the body itself is still able to function to some degree without the leadership or organization that existed previously. The simple consciousness of atoms, cells, and organs continues to exist, after the main consciousness has left, for some time.
There may or may not be disorientation on your part, according to your beliefs and development. Now I do not necessarily mean intellectual development. The intellect should go hand in hand with the emotions and intuition, but if it pulls against these two strongly, difficulties can arise when the newly freed consciousness seizes upon its ideas about reality after death, rather than facing the particular reality in which it finds itself. It can deny feeling, in other words, and even attempt to argue itself out of its present independence from the body.
…an individual can be so certain that death is the end of all, that oblivion, though temporary, results. In many cases, immediately on leaving the body there is, of course, amazement and a recognition of the situation. The body itself may be viewed, for example, and many funerals have a guest of honor amidst the company — and no one gazes into the face of the corpse with as much curiosity and wonder.
At this point, many variations in behavior emerge, each the result of individual background, knowledge, and habit. The surroundings in which the dead find themselves will often vary. Vivid hallucinations may form experience quite as real as any mortal life. Now, I have told you that thoughts and emotions form physical reality, and they form after-death experience. This does not mean that the experiences are not valid, any more than it means that physical life is not valid.
Certain images have been used to symbolize such a transition from one existence to another, and many of these are extremely valuable in that they provide a framework with understandable references.
Diane’s Humble Opinion:
Take this for what it’s worth to you. Christianity has certain beliefs such as heaven, hell, purgatory and the like. And other religious belief systems have their own levels of structure for reward-punishment etc. as well. From the readings I have done, and through hundreds of channeling sessions I can let you know that the people really do experience what they believe to be true. Whether they believe they will be guided by beloved figures of Christian saints and angelic beings, or by a host of Hindu Gods, Buddhist Bodhisattva’s, and the like… the after life experience is based on and built upon their own conscious beliefs and is also influenced by the conditions that exist at the time of death.
If called upon to guide someone who has just transitioned it is my job to let them know and their loved ones know that they won’t be alone, and there is no judgement to fear. Sometimes unfortunately fear can keep one earth-bound. To stay here just mucking about is really such a boring existence indeed when you realize what else there is available for you. But, literally the spirit may be afraid to move forward, but it is best to consciously understand that the after-life is full of love, compassion and grace. All are loved and welcomed back home by the original source of all, the divine presence. There is no judgement other than what we inflict upon ourselves.
I like to visit historical sites, and meet with those who have a connection to the area. A couple of years ago I was in Boston, specifically staying about 2 blocks from Bunker Hill.
Naturally curious, I went up to the Hill trudging through several feet of snow, and felt an American soldier pleading with me. Since no one was around physically, I just simply asked him out loud, “What is wrong, how can I help?” He literally said, “Please pray for me Miss.”. Which I promptly did. He let me know that he felt guilty as he somehow had made the wrong move in the notorious battle and mistakenly had convinced himself that others passed away due to his “mistake”. I assured him he did the best he could under the circumstances and I was quite sure that he shouldn’t take it so seriously and that there was nothing to be afraid of. After which he thanked me with much gratitude and quite simply left the battleground. I then trudged back home in the snow, at least happy I could help one poor stuck soul.
It’s very important to understand in order to evolve that we are all here to learn lessons, and not get trapped by guilt, fear or old stories and dogma that have been fed to us. These belief systems serve their purpose marvelously for some, but you are entitled to your own conscious evolution.
By the way no religious philosophy is superior to another, nor one spiritual guide superior to another. Also the names that we assign to the divine presence are inconsequential as it is our consciousness and belief system that guides us.
Whether you choose to look for comfort from God, Jesus, Jehovah, Buddha, Allah, Moses, the Universe, Cosmic Consciousness, the I am, or even a vast array of other spiritual beings. You will find what and “who” is best for you according to your evolutionary path, and your unique perspective and experiences.
I can assure you upon passing, no matter what may have transpired during your life, no one is left alone to suffer for this or that. Teachers and guides appear when you are ready to help you evolve and understand where you might have done better or just give you the reassurance that it is time to forgive yourself and others. Thousands of years of conscious belief have developed and fostered the endless energy source systems of divine compassion.
Therefore I hope you can see that you should not fear anything, for example, “Gosh what if I picked the wrong “God”? Or, “Gee I really shouldn’t of done x,y,z and wow, am I going to get it.”
You are a part of the universe, and the universe is a part of you. God is indeed simply LOVE. You see. The universe is created and bound together by love and numerous dimensions that are in simultaneous existence. There is an infinite multitude of evolutionary paths that defy our present limitations of perception. You were sent here on a predetermined mission to learn certain lessons to help you evolve as a soul. You are not a body with a soul. You are a soul, or energized being with a temporary body. Upon death of the body, if you find yourself scared, hallucinating all sorts of distasteful things…. just remember the universe is infinite, and is based on LOVE. This simple practice should help raise your conscious and whisk you promptly away from any blockages that you may be temporarily experiencing in the bardo, or in-between state.

Just a kindly note:
This is a continuing series of resources and references on the subject. Take what you feel is useful, and if it is not applicable or even believable for you please never mind. You have the perfect right to accept and believe whatever is right for you. In fact on some points within Seth’s writing you will see me interjecting what needs to be slightly tuned up a bit from what I and countless others have experienced.)

“What happens at the point of death? The question is much more easily asked than answered. Basically there is not any particular point of death in those terms, even in the case of a sudden accident. I will attempt to give you a practical answer to what you think of as this practical question, however. What the question really means to most people is this: What will happen when I am not alive in physical terms any longer? What will I feel? Will I still be myself? Will the emotions that propelled me in life continue to do so? Is there a heaven or a hell? Will I be greeted by gods or demons, enemies, or beloved ones?”
“Most of all the question means: When I am dead, will I still be who I am now, and will I remember those who are dear to me now? I will answer the questions in those terms also, then; but before I do so, there are several seemingly impractical considerations concerning the nature of life and death with which we must deal.”
“What you want to know, is what happens when your consciousness is directed away from physical reality, and when momentarily it seems to have no image to wear.
“Quite practically speaking, there is no one answer, for each of you is an individual. Generally speaking, of course there is an answer that will serve to cover the main issues of the experience, but the kinds of deaths have much to do with the experience that consciousness undergoes. Also involved is the development of the consciousness itself, and its overall characteristic method of handling experience.”
“The ideas that you have involving the nature of reality will strongly color your experiences, for you will interpret them in the light of your beliefs, even as now you interpret daily life according to your ideas of what is possible or not possible. Your consciousness may withdraw from your body slowly or quickly, according to many variables.”
In the many cases of senility, for example, the strongly organized portions of personality have already left the body, and are meeting the new circumstances. The fear of death itself can cause such a psychological panic that out of a sense of self-preservation and defense you lower your consciousness so that you are in a state of coma, and you may take some time to recover.
A belief in hell fires can cause you to hallucinate Hades’ conditions. (Diane Annotation: Sorry he brought this old tired worn out idea. But he is saying it’s just a hallucination produced by an ingrained old story taught to us as a means of control. Since our thoughts and feelings define our reality, if you feel guilty and therefore have accepted this thought pattern as a reality you must face it would be wise for you to evolve out of that now.)
I can assure you in hundreds of readings no one has claimed to have seen any annoying fellow with pointy ears, a red suit, pitch fork, and a desire for the old eternal barbecue. Even if you do see or experience some rather wild hallucinations, just remember that they are fabricated by your own belief system. Sooner or later you will be able to understand that it is not a true reality and with your own wisdom work your way out of it.) A belief in heaven will result in a vision of heavenly conditions. You always form your own reality according to your ideas and expectations. This is the nature of consciousness and reality. We form our conditions from our belief system.
Consciousness must use its abilities. Seth warns us, that a perfect after-life enjoying heaven can actually finally be a bit of a bore after awhile. Your striving consciousness will long to keep growing. There are teachers available who will explain the conditions and circumstances.
You will find yourself in another form, an image that will appear physical to you to a large degree. But as soon as you try to manipulate the physical world with it, the differences between it and your physical body will become pretty obvious. (And yes it is great fun walking through walls.)
If you firmly believe that your consciousness is a product of your physical body, then you may attempt to cling to it. There is an order of personalities, an honorary guard, (a group of energies, souls who wish to help you in your transition. ) They are ever ready to lend assistance and aid, however.
Now this “group” is made up of people in your terms both living and dead. Those who are living in your system of reality perform these activities in an “out-of-body” experience while the physical body sleeps. They are familiar with the projection of consciousness, with the sensations involved, and they help orient those who will not be returning to the physical body.
These people are particularly helpful because they are still involved with physical reality, and have a more immediate understanding of the feelings and emotions involved at your end. Such persons may or may not have a memory of their nightly activities. Experiences with projection of consciousness and knowledge of the mobility of consciousness, are therefore very helpful preparations for death. You can experience the after-death environment beforehand, so to speak, and learn the conditions that will be encountered.
This is not, incidentally, necessarily any kind of somber endeavor, nor are the after-death environments somber at all. To the contrary, they are generally far more intense and joyful than the reality you now know.
You will simply be learning to operate in a new environment in which different laws apply, and the laws are far less limiting than the physical ones with which you now operate. In other words, you must learn to understand and use new freedoms.
Even these experiences will vary, however, and even this state is a state of becoming, for many will continue into other physical lives. Some will exist and develop their abilities in different systems of reality altogether, and so for a time will remain in this “intermediary” state. (This state is similar in nature to that of the Tibetan Bardo State of in-between. )
Those of you who had faith in life after death will find it much easier to accustom yourself to the new conditions. Those of you who do not have such faith may gain it in a different way, by learning to extend your perceptions to these other layers of reality if you are persistent, expectant and determined. (You can begin increasing your wisdom and expectations now during your life, so that you are more aware upon passing.)
Now, you may or may not be greeted by friends or relatives immediately following death. This is a personal matter, as always. (Diane: It has been my experience that no one ever goes it alone.) But overall, you may be far more interested in people that you have known in past lives than those close to you in the present one, for example.
Your true feeling toward relatives who are also dead will be known to you and to them. There is no hypocrisy. You do not pretend to love a parent who did little to earn your respect or love. (Diane: Of course we are still talking about the in-between bardo state here….this is the state where we have freshly emerged out of the body. So we are still getting our sea-legs so to speak. The person has not yet evolved into the higher states of consciousness. The ego-driven thoughts fade away as we grow into a deepening level and awareness of the true reality of consciousness and the interrelationships of all things. We were all sent here together to learn lessons from one another. Things or people that may have hurt you in someway before will simply not be an issue at all. As you begin to learn any experience whether considered bad or good, is just experience to help you learn. Intense love, forgiveness, acceptance, and great mutual compassion quickly erases any primitive anger or displeasure you may have towards others.)
But alas, telepathy according to Seth, operates without distortion in this soon after-death period, so you must somehow contend your true feelings that may still exist between yourself and all relatives and friends who await you. (Hopefully you will try your best to generate good feelings and compassion for those around you while you are alive and therefore you won’t be bogged down at the end wrestling with those old thought patterns – as telepathy between you and your passed on loved one’s is pretty transparent.)
You may find that someone you considered merely an enemy actually deserved your love and respect, for example, and you will then treat them accordingly. Your own motives will be crystal clear. You will react to this clearness, however in your own way. You will not be automatically wise if you were not so before, but neither will there be a way to hide from your own feelings, emotions, or motives. Whether or not you accept inferior motives in yourself or learn from them is still up to you. The opportunities for growth and development are very rich, however, and the learning methods at your disposal very effective.
You examine the fabric of the existence you have left, and you learn to understand how your experiences were the result of your own thoughts and emotions and how these affected others. Until this examination is through, you are not yet aware of the larger portions of your own identity. When you realize the significance and meaning of the life you have just left, then you are ready for conscious knowledge of your other existences.
You become aware, then, of an expanded awareness. Your awareness also encompasses what you have been in other lives, and you begin to make plans for your next physical existence. Please take extra note on this : Whether or not you decide to reincarnate is an option that you may decide to forgo, or accept.
You can instead enter another level of reality, and then return to a physical existence if you choose.
Diane: Now remember our friends the Buddhists consider reincarnation usually to be a rather undesirable result. In fact they train a great deal and practice compassion for all sentient beings in order to create good karma. They also practice a neutral non-attachment so as not to be attracted again, into an endless cycle of birth and death. In their philosophy, life in our limited physical world is actually not the ideal. The ideal is to take higher rebirth into higher levels of consciousness, or become Bodhisattva’s in order to help others avoid suffering. They take refuge in the Buddha, the Dharma (Teachings) and the Sangha (The community of enlightened beings and people.
In their view point, temporary pleasures, are just that. Temporary. Although we can say it can seem pessimistic on their part, one can’t deny that eventually all that we work for, and attach ourselves to is impermanent, and yes although we may be young and healthy now, alas eventually it is inevitable that we shall grow old.) So if one has a chance to forgo all that and evolve onto a higher dimension and awareness, I would think that would be preferable.

Sometimes we can be overwhelmed. Grief is hard. I know. But sometimes, it is good to change our perspective. I hope this can help bring back your spark back to you. Light and Love, Diane.
Please enjoy this amazing perspective on our place within the world, and universe.
I like to call it: “Fast Path to Enlightenment”.
I have found the most fantastic music for relaxing and meditating. If you are feeling sad because of grief, or just plain stressed….I think you will love this. I know I do. There are literally people jackhammering for 3 hours today away old tile in the house. You would think I would be climbing the walls. Ha ha! Not so. We are in control of our own emotions, and whether or not we suffer. And some fantastic music definitely helps. Slip on your headphones, and enjoy this 1 hour of free music:

Angelic Intervention? Not exactly but still a great ending.
The “angel priest” who appeared at the scene of a Missouri car crash, anointed and prayed with the teenage victim, then vanished has been identified as Rev. Patrick Dowling of the Jefferson City Diocese.
A press release provided to FoxNews.com by the diocese said Father Dowling had been travelling Highway 19 between Mass assignments in northern and central Missouri when he arrived near the crash scene Aug. 4.
The arrival of the unidentified priest, who seemed to come out of nowhere, then attend to the victim before disappearing just as mysteriously, touched off nationwide speculation about the identity of the “angel” cleric.
Dowling actually identified himself in a comment posting on a story about his actions on the National Catholic Register website Friday night. The posting, one among many, appeared to go unnoticed for several days.
“I had Mass in Ewing MO as the regular priest was sick,” he wrote. “As I was returning, I arrived at the scene. The authorities were redirecting traffic. I waited till it was possible to drive up closer. I parked behind a large vehicle about 150 yards from the scene. I asked the Sheriff’s permission and approached the scene of the accident.
“I absolved and anointed Katie, and, at her request, prayed that her leg would not hurt. Then I stepped aside to where some rescue personnel and the (rescue helicopter) pilot were waiting, and prayed the rosary silently.
“I left when the helicopter was about to take off, and before I got to my car…”
The Archdiocese said Dowling, a native of Kilkenny, Ireland, was ordained a priest of the Diocese of Jefferson City, Mo., in 1982. He has served at parishes in Moberly, Monroe City, Indian Creek, Milan, Unionville and Eldon, Mo., and in the diocese’s mission parishes in Marcona and Nasca, Peru.
He is currently serving in prison ministry and in parish ministry to Spanish-speaking Catholics.
Family and friends of the victim, 19-year-old Katie Lentz of Quincy, Mo., had said they hoped to find the priest and thank him.
Rescuers told Fox4KC said a 26-year-old driver crossed the center lane and hit Lentz’ car head-on. Authorities spent about 45 minutes trying to cut her out of the car, but the metal on her older car dulled the equipment.
She asked the rescuers to pray with her and at that point the priest appeared.
Adding to the mystery, Fire Chief Raymond Reed said the department took 80 photos of the scene and the priest did not appear in any of them.
Mystery Priest in Missouri Rescue Revealed (9431)
Father Patrick Dowling says he was the priest on the scene, but he can’t explain some mysterious events reported by rescuers
by CARL BUNDERSON/CNA 08/12/2013 Comment
Father Patrick Dowling
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. — The mysterious priest who gave anointing to a Missouri woman trapped in her wrecked car has been identified as Father Patrick Dowling of the Diocese of Jefferson City.
“I thank God and the amazingly competent rescue workers,” Father Dowling stated in a comment on Catholic News Agency’s original article on the Aug. 4 incident. (The priest also recounted his story in a comment posted at NCRegister.com for the National Catholic Register.)
“I thank them for making me welcome in such a highly charged situation and allowing me to minister as a priest,” he said.
Katie Lentz was trapped in her older-model Mercedes after being struck by another vehicle that passed into her lane. That car’s driver has been charged with DWI.
Rescue workers spent an hour trying to get Lentz out of her car, but the solid materials of its construction were dulling the fire department’s emergency equipment.
Father Dowling was driving by Center, Mo., while on his way back from offering Mass in Ewing. A native of Ireland, Father Dowling was ordained a priest for the Jefferson City Diocese in 1982. He currently serves in prison ministry, and also ministers to the Spanish-speaking population of the Diocese of Jefferson City.
Though the highway was blocked off, Father Dowling revealed he “did not leave with the other cars.” After parking as close as he could to the scene of the accident, he said he walked the remaining 150 yards.
“I asked the sheriff if a priest might be needed,” he said.
“When the young lady asked that I pray her leg stop hurting, I did so. She asked me to pray aloud, and I did briefly,” he said.
Father Dowling added, “The rescue workers needed space and would not have appreciated distraction. I stepped to one side and said my Rosary silently until the lady was taken from the car.”
He observed that the rescue workers “worked with the harmony of a Swiss watch.”
“The Highway Patrol sergeant was amazingly calm and completely in control,” he said.
Once Lentz was removed from her vehicle, Father Dowling stated, “I then shook hands with the sheriff and thanked him as I left. I have to admire the calmness of everybody involved.”
Mysterious Questions Remain
CNA spoke with Father Dowling Aug. 12, and he said that he gave Lentz the anointing of the sick as well as absolution.
He affirmed that it was in the normal duties of a priest, “except that there was something extraordinary it sounds like, in the sequence of events that coincided in time with the anointing.”
“You must remember: There were many people praying there, many, many people … and they were all praying, obviously, for healing and for her safety,” he said.
“I was probably part of the answer to their prayers: I came by, and anointed, and absolved,” he said.
But Father Dowling said he could not explain other mysterious events that coincided with his ministering at the accident scene.
“I didn’t say another word,” he said. “I did not say anything like the machinery would begin to work or they would succeed in getting her out of the car.”
The priest said, “That did not come from my lips, though two people heard it.”
Was the angel of Highway 19 the saint Padre Pio? Catholics suggest that the priest who’s been dead for 45 years appeared at crash scene to bless and save life of teen victim
- Illinois student Katie Lentz, 19, had been pinned inside her Mercedes for over an hour and was fading fast when she asked her rescuers to pray
- A priest appeared and began to offer up a blessing – after which emergency workers delivered Katie from the wreck to hospital
- When they turned to thank the priest he had vanished
- He has still not been identified five days on and many Catholics are speculating the priest could have been none other than Padre Pio

Five days on, the identity of the guardian angel priest of Missouri’s Highway 19 remains as mysterious as his appearance on the roadside was miraculous.
Friends and family of Katie Lentz, along with rescue workers still want to thank the unidentified man whose prayers they credit with bestowing a supernatural calm as EMT’s battled to cut the Illinois teen from her mangled car wreck.
But with no one coming forward to claim credit, and over 70 photographs of the crash scene yielding no images of the priest, some have suggested that the divine intervention of one of the Catholic Church’s most beloved modern figures could have been at work.
Indeed, Carla Churchill Lentz, the mother of Katie said that her daughter’s car was so twisted that rescuers said no one should have been able to survive.
‘I do believe he certainly could have been an angel dressed in priest’s attire because the Bible tells us there are angels among us.’

Missouri Savior? Many have speculated online that Padre Pio who was said to be blessed with many supernatural powers during his life time was the priest who helped Katie Lentz on Highway 19 on Sunday
Some have speculated online that the priest could have been the Catholic Saint Padre Pio, who died in Italy 45 years ago.
He has a huge global following, with celebrities such Sophia Loren and the Italian Andrea Bocelli devoted to the humble man from San Giovanni Rotondo.

- The riddle of the ‘angel priest': Holy man appeared from nowhere to pray with trapped girl and rescuers in traffic accident, told them she would be OK and then vanished
Padre Pio was said to have suffered the stigmata – the wounds of Jesus Christ on the cross – throughout his adult life and those who knew him said that he exuded a blissful smell of violets, had persuasive powers of conversion and could heal the sick.
However, most remarkable of all, it is believed that Padre Pio had the gift of ‘bilocation’ – the ability to be in two places at once.
Mangled Wreck: Emergency workers were struggling to save Katie Lentz when she was hit head-on by a drunk driver on Highway 19 near to Center, Missouri
Prayer: When emergency workers could not free her – Katie Lentz asked them to stop so that a prayer could be said
Effort: The desperate effort to save Katie Lentz was blessed by a Catholic priest who appeared from nowhere and just as mysteriously vanished
Indeed, the man who appeared at the crash site was said by those who saw him to have an olive complexion, facial hair, a foreign accent and carried an old wooden rosary – which he prayed with while the emergency workers battled to free Katie Lentz.
It is his seemingly miraculous powers that have led some of his followers to believe that the man who blessed Lentz and her rescuers was indeed, Padre Pio.
Pio’s real name was Francesco Forgione and he was born in 1887 to peasant farmers living near Foggia on Italy’s east coast.
A poor scholar, he entered a Capuchin monastery as a novice at the age of 15, already suffering from ill-health aggravated by self-imposed penances.
By the age of 23, he was diagnosed with tuberculosis, only for the disease miraculously to leave him.
But it was when the bleeding stigmata appeared overnight on Padre Pio’s body that he became a true ‘celebrity’.
Composite and Saint: A sketch was created from the recollections of those who were at the scene of the crash on Sunday to help jog peoples memories – while (right) Saint Toribo Romo has been suggested as the identity of the mystery priest
On October 22, 1918, he wrote to his spiritual adviser, describing how this happened to him.
‘On the morning of the 20th of last month, in the choir, after I had celebrated Mass, I yielded to a drowsiness similar to a sweet sleep. I was suddenly filled with great peace and abandonment which effaced everything else and caused a lull in the turmoil.
All this happened in a flash.
‘While this was taking place, I saw before me a mysterious person….his hands and feet and side were dripping blood.
The sight terrified me and what I felt at that moment is indescribable.
‘I thought I should die and really should have died if the Lord had not intervened and strengthened my heart, which was about to burst out of my chest.
‘The vision disappeared and I became aware that my hands, feet and side were dripping blood. Imagine the agony I experienced and continue to experience almost every day.”
Padre Pio’s wounds continued to bleed till the end of his life, the liquid exuding a sweet smell akin to violets.
The cuts refused to heal and he lost as much as a cup of blood a day.
While a spokesman for the Jefferson City Diocese attempts to find the identity of the priest – some parishioners have suggest that Father Donardo ‘Dandi’ Bermejo is the man
While the world waits to see if indeed the guardian angel of Highway 19 is revealed, a Tucson-based artist who works for a facial recognition software firm has created a sketch which he hopes will lead to the mans identification.
Sands explained in an e-mail toFOX 4that he based the sketch on mostly on media reports. He also said he has a brother-in-law who is a priest and he just had a sense based on his experiences and the reports of what the unidentified priest may look like.
It was on Sunday that Katie Lentz, a sophomore at Tulane University, was driving from her parents’ Quincy, Illinois home to Jefferson City, Missouri, where she has a summer internship.
Her Mercedes was hit head-on by another vehicle, driven by a drunk driver and the accident crushed Lentz’s car in a mangled wreck that left her with multiple broken bones, a ruptured spleen and damaged liver.
Workers from across the county battled for over an hour and a half to extricate Lentz from her car – but she was fading fast and their equipment was not heavy duty enough.
It was then that she asked to pray and at that moment the priest appeared to offer his blessings to Lentz and the emergency workers.
Divine Intervention: Katie Lentz was saved after emergency workers from Hannibal fire services arrived with heavy duty cutting equipment
The silver haired priest was reportedly in his 50s or 60s and was wearing black pants, a black shirt and black collar and seemingly stepped forward to answer Lentz’s plea from nowhere.
Raymond Reed, the New London fire chief said that it struck him as odd from the start as Highway 19 was blocked off for two miles in each direction and no one from the close-knit community recognized the man.
‘We’re all local people from four different towns,” Reed said. “We’ve only got one Catholic church out of three towns and it wasn’t their priest.’
Immediately after the 6ft tall priest gave his blessing, the emergency workers righted the car, stabilized Lentz’s vital signs and cut her out once the jaws of life appeared from a neighboring town.
She was put in an air ambulance and is now recovering in hospital.
But when they turned to thank the priest, he was gone.
Some have pointed out that Sunday just happened to be the feast of St. John Vianney, the patron saint of priests.
Others have said that the mystery priest could be be Father Toribio Romo González – the patron saint of immigrants.
He was killed in Mexico’s Cristero War but his ghost is said to haunt highways as far north as Illinois, giving people in need water, food and even helping them with directions if they are lost.
Others have pointed to the more plausible guess that the priest who stopped to help is from a neighboring town.
Scene: Dozens of emergency workers battled to free Katie Lentz as she lay pinned in her Mercedes wreck on Highway 19
Chief Raymond Reed said that the Catholic priest made everyone including Katie Lentz calmer before the jaw-of-life appeared from Hannibal
Some have suggested that Father Donardo ‘Dandi’ Bermejo, the pastor of St Mary’s Catholic Church of Shelbina, Missouri could be the mystery priest.
On the church website, Father Dandi posted a link to a news story of the mysterious priest, stating, ‘Divine’ intervention of a higher power. The Holy Spirit works through all of us.
However, a spokesperson for the Catholic Diocese of Jefferson City said that they had ruled Father Dandi out, because he was saying mass at the time of the crash.
‘I think it’s a miracle,’ said New London Fire Chief Raymond Reed to KHQA.
‘I would say whether it was an angel that was sent to us in the form of a priest or a priest that became our angel, I don’t know. Either way, I’m good with it.’
The Facebook page of Lentz’s mother, Carla Church Lentz, indicates Lentz is on the mend despite suffering two broken femurs, a broken tibia and fibia, broken left wrist, nine broken ribs, a lacerated liver, ruptured spleen and bruised lung.
Empty Stretch: The road was closed for a quarter of a mile either side of the crash and there were no bystanders
Father James Martin, a Jesuit priest and author of My Life with the Saints, has a different theory.
‘Most likely the priest will be identified, and people will be able to thank him,’ he told The Huffington Postin an emailed message Thursday.
‘If he’s not found, that may mean he wants to remain anonymous. Could it have been an angel? There are similar ‘angelic’ stories in the lives of the saints, when a figure inexplicably appears and cannot be located afterwards.
‘There are angels, of course, but we tend to ascribe to angels anonymous acts that we find incredibly loving — when in fact human beings do incredibly loving things in hidden ways every day.’
A spokesman for the Catholic Diocese of Jefferson City said officials are trying to get to the bottom of the mystery.
‘We do have several churches and parishes in the area,’ diocese spokesman Deacon Dan Joyce said. ‘We saw the description information and we have pictures on file of all of our priests, but we haven’t heard directly from any of them.’

I am a ravenous reader. And ever sense I found out I could buy used books on Amazon literally for a few cents to $4.00 – Wow I’m on overdrive. It’s really amazing!
My latest find is “The Afterlife Of Billy Fingers: How My Bad Boy Brother Proved to Me There’s Life After Death – Annie Kagan. This book is a real gem. As it really does completely explain the afterlife in intricate detail, but provides proof positive that even the author was astounded by. My favorite quote from an interview with the author is from Life After Death Television:
Transcript (In Part)
Annie Kagan: I think my favorite thing that Billy has taught me is that every cell in my body was made on a star in a super nova, literally. This is not poetry. We’re forged from stars and the same cosmic intelligence that runs the universe beats our heart; breathes our breath; heals our wounds. We’re magical, cosmic creatures.
And by looking at photos from the hota telescope, which I do a lot now after he told me to do it, those mysterious, wonderful galaxies and dust clouds. And then close your eyes and imagine that they’re inside you and all around you. Forget about your problems for a moment and become like a cosmic being. And doing that changes you. Many people have reported how expansive they become. So I love that. You’re made of stars.
Bob Olson: That is beautiful and how many of us have not looked up at the stars and just felt a strange connection with the oneness of all that is. My last interview, Don Miguel Ruiz, had an incredible epiphany that changed his whole life by doing that, by looking up at the stars.
Annie Kagan: Wow. Carl Sagan used to say, “Why do we feel that way when we’re looking up at the stars? Because it’s a longing to return to our origins.”
Sound resonance creates form. Interesting concept that frequencies of energy created the universe. In simple terms, we can then say our speech, the sound waves & frequencies does indeed the physical makeup of our reality.
If you are trying to simply relax and have your mind go into a Theta brain wave state here is a one hour recording. Sorry the graphic is kind of odd, but just close your eyes and relax.
Wheel of Great Compassion
Mantra Recitation and the Prayer Wheel
It is suggested that one recite the six-syllable mantra – Om mani padme hum – while turning the prayer wheel. The Tibetan commentaries state the benefits of doing so are immeasurable. This is the mantra of Avalokiteshvara, the Buddha of Compassion, and it is recited continually by many Tibetans. One also finds it carved on rocks, written on prayer flags, embossed on jewelry, and inside of most prayer wheels. Among Tibetans it is commonly known as the mani mantra, and thus prayer wheels are often referred to amond Tibetan as mani wheels.
Mantras are strings of syllables empowered by enlightened beings to benefit others. “The word ‘mantra’ means ‘mind-protection.’ It protects the mind from ordinary appearances and conceptions” that characterize the ongoing cycle of samsaric suffering. Different mantras are said to bring different benefits, and many are kept secret and only revealed to students who have received initiation into a particular meditation practice. However, with regard to the mani mantra, Kalu Rinpoche notes that is “is extremely powerful” and “can be used by one and all” to speed their path to enlightenment. His Holiness Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche wrote, “The mani is not just a string of ordinary words. It contains all the blessings and compassion of (Avalokiteshvara),” and so he advises us to listen to this mantra, “recite it, read it, and write it beautifully in golden letters. Since there is no difference between the deity himself and the mantra which is the essence, these activities will bring great benefit.”
The role mantras in Buddhist practice is often not well understood in the West. It has been scientifically documented that mantra recitation produces significant pyschological and physiological relaxation, and statistical analyses have shown that meditation with traditional mantras produces a greater reduction in anxiety than other kinds of meditation (including meditation with randomly selected Sanskrit syllables or with personally selected English words). Westerners have tended to emphasize the relaxing effect of mantra recitation in their understanding of this practice. From a Tibetan Buddhist perspective, such relaxation is not the goal of mantra recitation; rather, it is a positive but minor side effect.
Kalu Rinpoche has explained how fully enlightened buddhas and highly realized bodhisattvas (those who have realized at least the eighth bodhisattva level) can perceive “sacred letters” within the nadis or energy channels of the subtle body. He notes that such highly realized beings imbue mantras with specific powers, such as the ability to bring about health, increase intelligence, provide protection, and the like. Lama Thubten Yeshe has noted how the mantra of Vajrasattva has the power to purify negative karma. He describes how daily recitation of this mantra with clear concentration can stop negative karmas from increasing and how ongoing recitation with good concentration and insight “will be tremendously effective in eradicating impure concepts and the darkness of emotional obstacles.”
Ultimately, the subject of mantras and of how they function in Buddhist practice is extremely vast and profound. What is important to understand here is that a mantra is not like a proyer to a divine being. Rather, the mantra – whether recited, written, or spun – is the deity, is enlightenment, immediately manifest. As Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche says, “there is no difference between the deity himself and the mantra which is his essence.” Robert Thurman notes that when Tibetans recite the mani mantra, they are in effect saying, “All is well. Everything is perfect. Wisdom and compassion uphold every atom !” In turning the prayer wheel and reciting the mani mantra, one is essentially attempting to put a full stop to the impure, samsaric world based on ignorance and self-centered attitudes. One is asserting with one’s body, speech, and mind that the Buddha of Compassion is manifest here and now, that this is his pure land, and that the universe is completely filled with the brilliant light of compassionate wisdom, manifest everywhere in order to awaken beings.

Consciousness doesn’t just cease at the time of
death. It is not like a lamp that goes out when
the fuel is finished. The body and mind are totally
separate; they are two different phenomena.
– Lama Zopa Rinpoche
Thoughts from Diane Eileen:
Every life is impermanent. We are only here but for a short while. The best thing one can do to make sure when this inevitable transition does occur that we have made every part of our life as meaningful, thoughtful, and compassionate as we can. Although it seems at first a pessimistic way to go about things, the Buddhist masters remind us that we should think about how there are no guarantees, and that we have no idea of when we will pass. It could be today, tomorrow, or next year. No one knows. Therefore it is an important part of our practice to recognize on a daily basis the impermanent and transient nature of all things. In doing so we will naturally develop a more calm mind, a more loving attitude, more patience and gratitude for the smallest of things.
As a volunteer for hospice I have come to know how common death really is. In all sincerity this really has gotten to my core. One week I will greet and say my hellos, and try my very best to make a new patient comfortable. We talk, we laugh, we hold hands if they want, we listen to their favorite music. But the following week, a very good lesson in impermanence comes right into full focus. As I walk into the wing, and check each room. I see my friend is gone. Their hospital room is empty. The bed has been moved, their flowers, the cards from family are all gone. It’s a very lonely feeling. It’s happened over and over hundreds of times.
I have come to realize through this experience how precious and short life is. Also everyone meets their transition in a different way. Some poor souls bodies are hurting with so much physical pain they can only last a short while, trying their best to overcome with morphine. They also may be devastated with emotional trauma. They can be absolutely truly frightened when the time does arrive. Others laugh and joke until the end – asking for a Coca Cola and a good movie. Some are more prepared than others. They have tried their best to be good parents, sons or daughters, just kind loving people for a good part of their lives, and have few if any regrets. Others sad as it may seem, may only have me for their “family” at the end. But for my end of things, I feel fortunate and blessed that at least I can help one more soul feel peaceful and loved. I always promise they always will have me no matter what. We laugh about how I am their tour guide to the other side thanks to more than my share of Out of Body experiences. I share with them exactly what it feels like to move on. The incredible peace and love that will comfort and heal them. One dear lady exclaimed how nice it was to finally have an “adult conversation” about what was going to happen. She and I watched Turner classic movies every week for three months and listened to big band music. She let me know it was the “tops”. Until finally a great granddaughter arrived into the world, and then she decided it was ok to take her leave.
So my whole point is there really is no sense in deluding ourselves into thinking we have until tomorrow, or next year. We need to be a better more compassionate person now while we have time. Don’t wait until the last two weeks of your life. By then, alas it’s a bit too late. It’s hard to make amends or get everything right with such a short time frame.
Fifty years from now, I certainly am not going to be here. Probably you won’t either. These words will disappear along with everything else. After all, this is just a website. When you think about it, it’s really just spinning electrons flashing across your screen. But hopefully a few of my thoughts will help you or someone you know progress or shine with a wee bit more light and love.
You will come to realize that life after death is a fact and not an illusion or a fairy tale. It is an experience that is unexplainable, beautiful and healing. Quite simply, when you pass on no matter who you are, or how you feel about yourself…You will be welcomed home whole heartedly. You are a part of the divine experience, the universe is you and you are the universe. You will know and feel true love, compassion, and complete and total acceptance. No judgment, no big old interview to fear. Although I don’t claim to have any super wisdom, super powers, or even own a plastic cape, hopefully you will remember these words. When it comes to dying keep a calm and peaceful mind as it will help you move on to a higher realm. Die with fear, and alas it won’t be as much fun now will it?
