A Disturbing Near-Death Experience occurred, and although mostly traumatic, the overwhelming bliss of Heaven she also experienced shifted her religious beliefs to a deep spirituality. Kathy credits the members of IANDS (International Assn. for Near-Death Studies) for her eventual integration of the Disturbing NDE and the ability to accept the sacred mission that caused her reluctant return to Earth. She now shares her experience, and its messages, as a guest on various media and via her memoir, Misfit In Hell To Heaven Expat.About the book: Placed on a ventilator for lung failure caused by the virulent flu in 1999, First-Time Author M.K.

During her lengthy recovery, as M.K. reflected on the purpose of her experiences in the Afterlife, she recalled the tribulations of her family ancestors and their courage to survive.

After learning of a family friend who took both his own life and the lives of his family due to a run-in with loan sharks, Ken became determined to understand why something as ubiquitous as money could deeply influence our behavior.And in some cases, with very tragic outcomes.Ken would go on to build multiple successful businesses and achieve ultimate financial freedom at just 29. But his fascination with our relationship with money persisted. After surveying over 12,000 self-made millionaires in Japan while being mentored by the late Wahei Takeda (the ‘Warren Buffett of Japan'), he began noticing a common pattern among the richest, happiest, and most fulfilled people.Building sustainable wealth was less about Money IQ (business and investment strategies) and more about Money EQ (our emotional intelligence surrounding money).Ken's financial expertise comes from owning and managing several businesses, including an accounting company, a management consulting firm, and a venture capital corporation. His writings bridge the topics of finance and self-help, focusing on creating and generating personal wealth and happiness through deeper self-honesty.Ken provides ongoing support through mentoring programs, business seminars, therapeutic workshops, and correspondence courses.Ken is the first person from Japan to be voted into the Transformational Leadership Council, a group of personal and professional development leaders.

    It's easy to take it all for granted and go through life feeling invincible--especially if you've spent your life successfully facing challenges, overcoming obstacles in the way, and working hard to improve yourself both mentally and physically. Yet for all of us, this feeling of invincibility is an illusion. From Sudden Death to Paradise shares one man's story of suddenly facing his mortality and coming to terms with what he experienced.After being exposed to toxic chemicals while in the military, and unknown to him, author T. S. Dismas developed an autoimmune disease that would kill him--one night, Dismas suffered sudden heart failure and died for ten minutes. Yet in that moment, he had a near-death experience and visited heaven, where he would learn a valuable lesson about himself, his life, his faith, and God.No amount of suffering could take away his joy and peace, and after his experience, life was now sweet and truly a gift. With a new heart--both literally and spiritually--he was able to realize his previous life was not part of God's plan, and that embracing God's love is the only way to sustain happiness and find meaning in this life.

In 2007 a vehicle she was traveling in was hit by a roadside bomb. Her book Application of Impossible Things details her experience with that incident. About the Book: This is an amazing true story of a female civilian employee of the Army Corps of Engineers in Basrah and Nasiriyah, Iraq. She was riding in a truck with other men when a roadside bomb destroyed the vehicle. Her body was so severely damaged that there was no possible way she could live. She vividly recounts her Near Death Experience (NDE) when she went out of the body to the spirit world.There it was decided that her work on Earth was not done, and with the help of spirit guides, they repaired the body so she could reenter it. She retained the conscious memory of what happened, and more details returned during her time in the hospital. This is an amazing story of survival in wartime conditions.This has happened to many others in Iraq, but how many remember the spiritual side of the experience? Before this experience, Sudman was dubious about anything that smacked of the paranormal. This experience made her a believer. She shares her story here for the first time to demonstrate that the paranormal is normal and to assist others who have had similar experiences.This book is for anyone interested in near death experiences and out-of-body experiences. It is one of the first such books to come out of the Iraq conflict.Please enjoy my conversation with Natalie Sudman.

    At age five, Bruce Rubin had a spiritual experience playing in a sandbox in the middle of the afternoon. The sun disappeared, and a dense night sky appeared in its place. Infinite galaxies were swirling in the vastness of his own head, and he sensed the entire universe was contained within him. He knew instantly he was one with all there was. In the years that followed, Bruce became an Oscar-winning screenwriter, a spiritual teacher, and, most recently, a photographer. Each aspect of his life has been a conscious effort to explore and reveal what he learned in that sandbox.Bruce was born in the middle of WWII and raised in Detroit, Michigan, the son of Sondra and Jimmy Rubin. He has a younger brother and sister, Gary and Marci. There was very little remarkable about him. He wanted to be an actor, writer, and director but had no talent to speak of. In 1965 he took a massive (and accidental) overdose of LSD and began a journey that lasted between 3 and 4 billion years. When he returned, he knew he would have stories to tell. He also knew he needed to find a teacher, so he hitchhiked around the world for nearly two years in search of one. After living in ashrams in India and in a Tibetan monastery in Kathmandu, he met his teacher Rudi in New York City just blocks from where he had begun his journey. Rudi taught a meditation practice that became the foundation for Bruce's spiritual life. He has meditated every day since. Bruce's screenwriting career began late in his life. Earlier, he had been an assistant film editor for the NBC Nightly News and Curator and Head of the Film Department at the Whitney Museum in New York. When Rudi died, Bruce gave up his museum career to continue his spiritual practice with a disciple of Rudi's in Bloomington, Indiana. While there, he was also writing movies, twice locking himself in a hotel room and refusing to emerge without a finished script. He also began teaching meditation to an expanding community of fellow seekers and continues holding classes to this day. After 44 years of daily meditation, Bruce experienced what is referred to as a spiritual awakening. For him, it was a revelation that no one could awaken. The illusion of a separate ego dissolved and left him in a state of extraordinary emptiness and inexplicable expansion. It was a profound step in a journey that began in a sandbox and continues to this moment. Bruce continues to share his evolving experience with his students. His talks can be found on YouTube and on his site. Recently, he also discovered photography as an unexpected opportunity for communicating his spiritual vision. The result of always having an iPhone in his pocket, he describes this new phase in his creative life as the discovery of seeing. As Bruce explains, “The mystery and magic of the world are not hidden. It is under our feet, on old walls, and in rusting garbage cans. The beauty, the wonder, never ends.”Please enjoy my conversation with Bruce Joel Rubin.

    When Christian Sundberg was a young child, he remembered his existence before coming to Earth. While that memory left him completely for his early adult life, it spontaneously returned 12 years ago as Christian took up a meditation practice and went through a personal awakening journey.He also began to have Out of Body Experiences (OBEs). Christian now often speaks publicly as he seeks to remind others in at least a small part of who we really are beneath the human “play.” Professionally, Christian has worked for 16 years as a project manager for complex nuclear pump and valve manufacturing projects. Christian is the author of the book “A Walk in the Physical,” which attempts to succinctly describe the larger spiritual context in which we exist and the importance of love in our human journey.What is a Pre-Birth Experience?A pre-birth experience, also known as a prenatal or a pre-natal recollection, refers to memories or recollections of events before a person's birth. Some people believe that they have memories of experiences from before they were born, and there are various theories about how these memories might be formed.There is also some debate about the possible causes of pre-birth memories. Some theories suggest that these memories may be the result of the fetus being able to sense and remember events that occur during pregnancy, while others propose that they may be the result of the mother's memories being transmitted to the fetus through various means, such as through the umbilical cord or through chemical signals in the womb. Of course, there is also the spiritual component to pre-birth memories.It is worth noting that while some people claim to have vivid and detailed pre-birth memories, others only have a sense of familiarity or déjà vu when thinking about events that occurred before their birth. Additionally, some people may strongly believe in the reality of their pre-birth experiences even if they cannot provide specific details or supporting evidence.Please enjoy my conversation with Christian Sundberg.

    At the age of 56, Rob A. Gentile had a massive heart attack followed by a profound near-death experience. On his journey to a heart transplant, he was close to death again and entered the Ethereal a second time. He found himself inside a shapeless, formless vacuum of unending and infinite vastness. He was everywhere at once, scattered across a timeless expanse and connected to the wisdom of the universe-all of it without words.He saw and simultaneously became part of a gigantic interactive web of twinkling lights covering the Earth and stretching into infinity. Curiously, some parts of the web were brighter, some dim, and some completely dark. He later came to believe that this web represents a network that binds us all and is built upon quarks-the smallest elements of matter, and which are made of light. While in the Ethereal, he understood that each quark of light symbolized a life. He realized that if he hurt himself, he hurt everything connected to him, but if he loved, the light would spread. Rob also saw his daughter with special needs, perfect, whole, and radiant.The most important message he received was of unity, oneness, and our real identity.

    Having had soulful experiences since childhood, Jan Christenson has a unique way of looking through the lens of the inner self and seeing the world a bit differently than many other humans. After spending most of her life as a nurse caring for others, she now finds herself enjoying spending a lot of time with her children and grandchildren, so much love and joy comes to be through time with her loved ones.Another love she has developed is that of showing other humans how to quietly let their soul speak to them. After several years in University trying to understand the human condition, it seems true to her now that all we need is to love ourselves and get quiet enough to hear our soul speak, then live our true souls desired path.Jan Christenson: "I did write a book a few years ago and am just about to begin writing my new book. I have changed quite a bit since my last book. I see things quite a bit differently now. What I see now is this: We are here to grow our souls, to learn and acquire many human experiences which bring us to a new level of understanding deeply at a soul level. Our soul will give us information about our unique path if we can get quiet enough inside to hear it. This understanding leads to many new discoveries; for example, when we can hear our soul speak, we can no longer struggle to find our path in life. There truly is no war inside of us; we just think there is. Once you can hear what your soul desires are, you are free in a new way. It becomes very possible to stop freaking out at the thoughts that come up in your human mind. The ego loses its power when you truly see that there is no war inside.You see, we are energy from head to toe, and energy never dies. It just changes form. So this place inside of us that is pure energy is our ever-present soul or spirit, and it is who we are in eternity. This soul or this energy that is our only true self has all of the answers to any question you could ever have. I know my soul deeply from the NDE that I had. In that experience, I learned that our soul and our energy is pure love and pure wisdom. I, quite frankly, felt more alive when I was dead than I have ever felt here in my body.So I see my challenge as learning to live here in this body, knowing of the magnificent soul within me, and learning to meld these two. To enjoy my time here on earth in any form or body, just as much as I felt that exquisite pure love when I was in pure energy, soul. Spirit or formlessness (all of these words mean the same thing). We are divine beings meant to live in joy and love here on earth."Please enjoy my conversation with Jan Christenson.

    Anthony Peake was a curious child. While his friends were reading Batman and Superman comics, Anthony immersed himself in learning of the most arcane nature (whilst still keeping an eye on the X-Men and Dr. Strange). It was in 1966, at the age of twelve, that he, quite by accident, came across a copy of The Sky People by Brinsley Le Poer Trench, and from then on, there was no stopping him. The British part-series Man Myth and Magic was read with intense interest, followed by the discovery of John Keel's Project Trojan Horse and Jacques Vallee's Passport to Magonia. What followed was a voracious and unquenchable need to know everything about everything.At university, he chose courses that would accommodate his wide interests, specializing in the sociology of religion, the theory of language development, and the art of the Italian Renaissance. A post-graduate course in management leads Anthony away from his calling as a writer and into a career as a manager in various UK businesses. His interest in the esoteric continued with a growing fascination for quantum physics and neurology developing over the years.It was in the year 2000 that his life was to change. A fortuitous set of circumstances allowed him to take a year's sabbatical from his business career, and he decided to focus the fruits of all his reading and research on writing a book.Exactly one year later, he surfaced with the manuscript of his first book, then entitled Cheating the Ferryman. This book was a distillation of all his areas of interest, quantum physics, neurology, ancient myths, altered states of consciousness, and the mystery of death. However, it was to take five years before this work appeared in print.Thanks to the help of Professor Bruce Greyson of the University of Virginia, an article based upon Anthony's Cheating the Ferryman hypothesis was to appear in the Winter 2004 edition of the Journal of Near-Death Studies, the academic periodical of the International Association of Near-Death Studies (IANDS). A few months later, in early 2005, British publishing house Arcturus bought the rights to the book and, a year later, and after a substantial re-write, Anthony's first book, with the new title Is There Life After Death – The Extraordinary Science of What Happens When We Die was published. The rest, as they say, is history.This book has now sold over 60,000 copies worldwide and has been translated into various foreign language editions, including Spanish, Russian, and Polish. Indeed, Anthony has now had books published in every major European language.Anthony has now written eight books, co-authored a ninth, and co-edited a tenth. All of them develop his Cheating the Ferryman hypothesis into ever-wider areas of application. His approach has always been to apply science to the mysterious and the enigmatic.His tenth book, a work on the time plays and time theories of British author-playwright J.B. Priestley, was published in 2018. In 2019 a sequel to his book, Opening the Doors of Perception, will be published. Also in 2018, an audiobook of Anthony's first work, Is There Life After Death – The Extraordinary Science of What Happens When We Die, was released with Anthony reading his own writings.Please enjoy my conversation with Anthony Peake.

He would spend the next twenty years gathering and meticulously categorizing their stories to identify key patterns and features of what is now known as the shared crossing experience.The similarities, which cut across continents and cultures and include awe-inspiring visual and sensory effects, and powerful emotional after-effects, were impossible to ignore. Long whispered about in the hospice and medical communities, these extraordinary moments of final passage are openly discussed and explained in At Heaven's Door. The book is filled with powerful tales of spouses on departing this earth after decades together and bereaved parents who share their children's entry into the afterlife.Applying rigorous research, Peters digs into the effect these shared crossing experiences impart--liberation at the sight of a loved one finding joy, a sense of reconciliation if the relationship was fraught--and explores questions like: What can explain these shared death experiences? How can we increase our likelihood of having one? What do these experiences tell us about what lies beyond? And, most importantly, how can they help take away the sting of death and better prepare us for our own final moments? How can we have both a better life and a better death?

    Rahelio Rodriguez has been in Sedona over the past 28 years arriving on the summer solstice of 1987. It was a very exciting time to be in Sedona, especially because of the Harmonic Convergence gatherings as related to the prophecies from the Toltec lord Quetzalcoatl for August of that year. By 1988 he began working as a Sacred Earth vortex tour guide and eventually started his own company in 1990, Sedona Nature Excursions, with his specialty Mystic Tours. During the 1990's he worked with many people very eager to experience the energy of the Sedona red rock country and its famous vortex energies. And this gave him the opportunity to develop his own unique way of teaching and sharing shamanic wisdom and healing methods while out in the beauty of the sacred landscape of Sedona.Rohelio's approach combines wisdom teachings from eastern Yogic traditions, Taoist wisdom, Christian mysticism, and Native American shamanism. He was especially drawn to the teachings of Toltec wisdom that has come out of Mexico and to the practice of Kriya yoga through Babaji's lineage. Since he was already very deep into the practice of western astrology, he was able to merge this perspective into the teachings of the Medicine Wheel as taught to him by Sun Bear. Regarding his Indian ancestry, it comes from Mexico; although he was born in the Midwest of the United States, where he grew up, Rahelio recognizes himself as an American-born Toltec. His awakening to the shamanic path was preceded by a number of mystical experiences he had at the beginning of his teenage years that jolted his reality. And these experiences continued throughout my life, where he had profound encounters with Spirit Powers and intelligence from alternate realities. At the age of 21, he was telepathically contacted by his ascended Master teacher, that began his conscious journey onto the spiritual path. Back in the late 70s, when he attended the College of Marin in northern California, Rahelio was involved as head of a Native American student organization that worked for public awareness of the issues of Native American political rights, land disputes, etc. At that time, this opened his eyes to the struggles of indigenous peoples throughout the Americas and the world. Later while living in Maui, Hawaii, Rahelio pursued spiritual and metaphysical studies and had experiences that facilitated his becoming a professional astrologer and mystic. Since he was working as a spiritual guide, astrologer, and healer, Rahelio was invited to be ordained as a minister into the Order of Melchizedek on Bell Rock in 1988 by the Reverend Dan Chesbro. And since 2012, he has been a legal member and medicine person of the Oklevueha Native American Church, as well as the head of my own Native American church ‘Toltec Sun Ministries.' he conducts Native American style weddings, Sweat Lodges and blessing ceremonies, as well as, share shamanic teachings and energetic practices including Medicine Wheel empowerments with sacred drum, flute, songs, and chants.Please enjoy my conversation with Rahelio Rodriguez.

Over those years he personally dealt with hundreds of patients suffering from severe alterations in their level of consciousness.

He thought he had a very good idea of how the brain generates consciousness, mind and spirit.In the predawn hours of November 10, 2008, he was driven into coma by a rare and mysterious bacterial meningo-encephalitis of unknown cause. He spent a week in coma on a ventilator, his prospects for survival diminishing rapidly. On the seventh day, to the surprise of everyone, he started to awaken. Memories of his life had been completely deleted inside of the coma, yet he awoke with memories of a fantastic odyssey deep into another realm – more real than this earthly one! His older son advised him to write down everything he could remember about his journey, before he read anything about near-death experiences, physics or cosmology. Six weeks later, he completed his initial recording of his remarkable journey, totaling over 20,000 words in length. Then he started reading, and was astonished by the commonalities between his journey and so many others reported throughout all cultures, continents and millennia.

Magazine show when a scheduled guest cancelled at the last minute. Peter was unaware that this phone call would launch his career in television. Julie Gauthier, producer for CBS News, tuned in the night that Anthony's segment aired, and the rest, as they say, is history. Working alongside news anchors Dan Rather, Diane Sawyer, Leslie Stahl, and Bob Schieffer, Peter was quick to rise, and was soon working with the who's who in television and film as a freelance image consultant.  In 1987, the after effects of a Near Death Experience, presented an inexplicable gift of mathematical codes such as, 222, 333, 444, as well as a series of 0.00's, followed by a series of 1111's. This played a life changing occurrence in Anthony's life. His artistic talents disappeared, and were replaced with Pythagorean codes, allowing Anthony to become an authority on ancient Numerology.Hollywood VIP's behind closed doors heard of Peter's gift as an intuitive and began booking private sessions for themselves, their family, friends, and colleagues. In 1995, Peter's NDE abilities landed him on Fox's hit TV series, Sightings. Anthony traveled extensively throughout the United States, working alongside a team of paranormal and forensics experts as a psychic detective.  Resolving forgotten murder cases and exploring haunted houses, cemeteries, abandoned caves, and concentration camps skyrocketed Peter's career into becoming an overnight success in television.

Peter has also been a guest on radio shows such as Coast to Coast with George Noory, Midnight FM, The Age of Truth, Dark Thirty Radio, The Outer Limits, The Art Bell Show, and I Heart Radio, as well as numerous YouTube, Podcast, and radio, shows across the world.Peter Anthony's international book tour has propelled him to become a defining speaker for NDEs. Mr. Anthony's book, Key Master, inspired by his own near death, has been inducted into the Edgar Cayce Library and is under development for a documentary series. Whether it is clear to us or not, our universe has an undeniable order. The Key Master Trilogy book series unfastens two thought-provoking questions. “What happens when we die? And is their life elsewhere in a galaxy full of stars?”Please enjoy my conversation with Peter Michael Anthony.
