Rich Martini: Life Between Lives #70

On June 12, 2018 Fahrusha and Kate Valentine were happy to welcome Rich Martini, who both wrote the book FlipSide and made the film “FlipSide”, which examine the phenomena of life between lives, wherein people visit a spiritual realm between physical lives to evaluate the past life and plan the next life. The person whose work this film and book concentrates on is the late hypnotherapist Dr. Michael Newton, who passed away  in September 2016.

In the years since his making the film “FlipSide” Rich Martini has branched out into after-death communication. However for this podcast he demonstrated with Fahrusha how the life between lives process might work. This demonstration was a total departure from our usual programming. Rich is extremely enthusiastic and upbeat. Fahrusha verifies that she had seen what might amount to her “Council” in a stadium-like setting on several deep meditations at the Monroe Institute and elsewhere. We at SRP would like to know what our listeners think about the process that Rich Martini took Fahrusha through. She did exactly what he told her at the beginning and said the first thing that came into her mind. Does this constitute proof? Our jury is out. We would like to know your opinion on this.

Fahrusha found out about Life Between Lives therapy through a client who was quite taken with it. Several years ago she read one of his books and listened to an audio from the Michael Newton Institute and she thought the idea was fascinating but frightening. She didn’t want to die and have to go to school in the afterlife. She didn’t want to come back to play parts on Earth. Having studied the works of Robert Monroe rather thoroughly, she worried that if she might be caught in what Monroe called “the belief system territories”. That references the idea that one goes to the place that one believes in after death.

In addition to FlipSide, Rich Martini’s books include It’s A Wonderful Afterlife Volumes I and II, and Hacking the Afterlife.

We were thrilled that Rich Martini came on our podcast to explain the whole process to us and as Kate Valentine opines “We are all dying to find out.” 😉

Surviving Death with Leslie Kean #47

Leslie Kean, author, Surviving Death

On  April 29, 2017 Kate Valentine and Fahrusha were proud to welcome Leslie Kean, author of both Surviving Death: A Journalist Investigates Evidence For An Afterlife and UFOs: Generals, Pilots and Government Officials Go on the Record, to Shattered Reality Podcast. We had a very lively discussion about the implications of a number of phenomena which suggest survival of individual consciousness after death.

Kean’s new book surveys parapsychological studies of a variety of classes of evidential experiences and introduces the reader to Kean’s own personal search for answers to the puzzle of whether consciousness survives death. There are chapters within the book authored by a variety of credible researchers who are tops in their fields. Topics include the past life experiences of young children, near death experiences (NDEs), end of life experiences, and experiences with mediums of various sorts.

If you have had an experience which suggests life after death such as communication from a recently deceased loved one or perhaps you yourself have had an NDE, and you would like to share that experience on the show, please use the contact form below:

Dr. Penny Sartori – the Near Death Experience #44

Dr. Penny Sartori, Author of The Wisdom of Near Death Experiences

On February 25, 2017 Kate Valentine and Fahrusha welcomed Dr. Penny Sartori, author of The Wisdom of Near Death Experiences. Dr. Sartori has been trained as a nurse and worked in the Intensive Therapy Unit at hospitals in Wales, UK for twenty years. During her time as a nurse she was fascinated by the death-bed experiences of patients and the near death experiences that some had. She was so intensely interested that she earned a Ph.D. in Near Death Studies. She teaches two original courses at Swansea University on the treatment of ITU patients and their spirituality.

In addition, Dr. Sartori has collected many accounts from people who have divulged their near death experiences to her. The experiences are varied but many have some attributes which are very similar. She is currently working on another book with a near death experiencer named Kelly Walsh about the transformative aspect of NDEs around the world. She has found that those patients who have had a positive near death experience are no longer afraid to die.

In this episode’s Listener Segment, Despina, added a miraculous experience she had on a Greek Island where she made a pilgrimage to the church of a local saint. She walked thirty miles in one day and had a mystical adventure you won’t soon forget.

PMH Atwater: the Near-Death Experience #22

P. M. H. Atwater

Near-death researcher and experiencer  P.M.H. Atwater explains the ins and outs of the near death experience to Kate and Fahrusha. What are the aftereffects of the experience? What different types of experiences are there? Some people go for prolonged periods without breathing but suffer no brain damage. Often experiencers report seeing religious figures from a religion other than their own. Unpleasant experiences (hellish) are reported but are not necessarily considered “bad” but rather instructive or helpful.

P.M.H. Atwater is the author of a number of excellent books. The book on which we focused in this episode was: Near-Death Experiences, The Rest of the Story, however she is a prolific author, with many other worthwhile titles to her credit.

We here at “Shattered Reality Podcast” welcome your feedback and suggestions as well as your accounts of paranormal experiences.
