After Death Experiences
After Death Experiences:
More Common Than You Might Think
The percentage of people reporting contact with the dead in surveys ranges anywhere from 42 to 72 percent. Widows having contact with their deceased husbands can go as high as 92 percent. If the surveys had included children and deathbed encounters, which are extremely common, the percentages would have been even heftier. A whopping 75 percent of parents who lost a child had an encounter within a year of the child's death.

A Door to the Other World
The psychomanteum is an invention of Dr. Moody's based on the Ancient Greek Oracles of the Dead that were housed underground. People would sojourn for miles to invoke the spirits of the deceased in these cavernous rooms.
The Oracles of the Dead were filled with candles and a large vat of hot olive oil. People would look into the reflective surface. The shimmering oil would often lull visitors into a kind of trance and they would see apparitions of their loved ones staring back.
The modern-day psychomanteum is created in a dark room, with a light source, and a reflective surface. Many people, including the late celebrity Joan Rivers, have seen apparitions in these magical chambers.

Her Deceased Father Came With Poems
For Her Grieving Mother
A few weeks after his death, Lisa Smartt heard her father's voice asking her to transcribe poems from beyond the veil for her mother — his beloved, Susan, wife of 54 years. Lisa listened attentively, jotting down everything he said. The result is Veil, a collection of poems in celebration of life and love. Lisa explains, “I hesitate to say that these poems definitely came from my father, but the inspired words comforted my mother and deepened my sense that those we love never leave us...”

Seven Simple Steps for Spirit Writing
from Afterlife TV's Bob Olson
• Sit down with a pen and paper, or at your computer. You can also use a crayon, marker or a piece of chalk if you want — whatever writing tool you enjoy most.
• Write down a question that you would like answered. It can be about a relationship, your career, or health — wherever you need some guidance.
• Some people like to begin with a prayer of intent and protection. Pray to your Source or spirit guides that only “advanced, higher-energy beings who are in the light and love of God” come through in your Spirit Writing.
• Relax and/or meditate for ten or fifteen minutes. Listen to a meditation CD or audiotape, if you have one. What I like about using music to relax is that I use the same music all the time, so my mind knows that I’m going to be Spirit Writing the second I turn it on, which immediately sends me into the right state of mind. If you listen to your music with headphones, it also helps to block out distractions.
• When you are ready, ask your question. You can read it out loud or silently to yourself.
• Now begin typing the very first thoughts that come into your mind. Do not hesitate. Do not judge or consciously think about what answer you are getting. Just try to write or type as fast as you can to record the answer. And don’t worry about typing mistakes, misspellings or any errors; just keep writing. Also, it doesn’t matter if you do this with your eyes open or closed. That’s a personal preference. Try it both ways and see what you prefer. And, finally, don’t expect it to be someone else’s voice in your head. The thoughts are “inspired” by spirit, not spoken in the spirit’s voice.
• If you are having trouble when you try Spirit Writing for the first time, just make up an answer. Write what you think a higher being might say to you if they were giving you advice on your question. You might be surprised to recognize that what you are making up is actually inspired guidance
