Heaven’s Window: Near-Death Survivor Stories

Psychic Viewpoint

Have you ever wondered if heaven exists? What does it look like? Will you see friends and relatives and pets when you arrive?

My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? John 14:2

Because we are physical beings here on planet earth, it may be difficult to visualize a place of absolute peace, love and timelessness. What I have found when speaking to those who have crossed over is that love and understanding is all encompassing. No more anger, sadness or pain. Just love. In spirit we are energy, so we no longer need to concern ourselves with worries or bodily issues or travel arrangements from Point A to Point B because time is no longer relevant.

“To see a World in a Grain of Sand And a Heaven in a Wild Flower, Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand And Eternity in an hour,” – William Blake, poet

They Come to Help Us Cross Over

I was walking down a trail one day, when I heard the words, “Patricia! C’mon! What are you waiting for?!” I knew in that moment my friend Patricia was leaving this realm, and her sister was calling from beyond to take her there. I felt the lightness in my friend’s heart and saw her smile as I felt her soul depart. I sensed her death in that moment and said a prayer. Although it made me sad, I knew the pain she had experienced was over, and she would be with family again.

Heaven Described Through Near-Death Experiences

Stories abound of people that have had near-death experiences (NDEs). They speak of leaving the body and floating above it, then finding themselves in a peaceful, beautiful place that is almost indescribable in human terms. Similarly, people that meditate regularly can have out-of-body experiences (OBEs), which provide a glimpse of the higher realms as well.

In a 2014 study, Awareness During Resuscitation, Dr. Sam Parnia, Assistant Professor of Medicine at Stony Brook University School of Medicine, Stony Brook, New York, compiled  interviews with 140 individuals out of a group of 2,060 individuals who experienced cardiac arrest (heart attack) and lived to talk about it. The near-death experiences revolved around 7 themes including fear, animals and plants, bright light, violence, deja-vu, and family. Of that group, 2 percent either heard or saw the events involved in their resuscitation.

“What people experience during this period of cardiac arrest provides a unique window of understanding into what we are all likely to experience during the dying process.” – Dr. Sam Parnia

Crossing Over and Coming Back Cured

At age 8, Annabel Beam had experienced a rough start in life. Diagnosed with a digestive disorder at age 4, she felt unbearable pain most of the time and sometimes wished she could die just to get away from it. One day, she was sitting on a tree branch with her sister when the branch cracked. Annabel fell 30 feet head first into the hollowed-out base of the tree. She recalled seeing very bright light and found herself sitting on Jesus’ lap. Jesus told her when the firefighters arrived there would be nothing wrong with her. She asked if she could stay but was told she had to return as she had plans to fulfill on earth. When found, Annabel did not have any scratches or injuries and was cured of her illness.

Mellen-Thomas Benedict had a 1.5 hour near-death experience from terminal brain cancer in 1982. On that day, he knew he was dying so he called friends to say goodbye. He asked his hospice nurse to let his body lie there after he was gone for a period of 6 hours before moving him, and she agreed to do so. When he “died” and saw his body lying on the bed, he noticed bright lights were before him. He said, “Wait,” then asked the question: “May I talk to you before I go?” It was at this point that God allowed him to see All That Is, and showed him that everything is connected, and that there is no evil in our souls, just a lack of love.

“As I passed into the second Light, I could perceive forever, beyond Infinity. I was in the Void, pre-Creation, the beginning of time, the first Word or vibration. I rested in the Eye of Creation and it seemed that I touched the Face of God. It was not a religious feeling. I was simply at One with Absolute Life and Consciousness.” – Mellen-Thomas Benedict

Mellen-Thomas Benedict died on March 31, 2017. His 1982 near-death experience, retold in part by Deepak Chopra, can be found here: https://www.near-death.com/experiences/exceptional/mellen-thomas-benedict.html.

All Pets Go to Heaven

Will you see your pets when you cross over? Jan Price, author of “The Other Side of Death,” said you most certainly do. Price tells the story of her NDE following a heart attack, when she left her body for four minutes. The first one to greet her on the other side was her beloved Springer spaniel, Maggi, who had died a month before. The dog was younger and livelier, and the two explored the higher realms together, Price said.

“What I came to realize is that there is a love connection between the two worlds – a stream of energy that forms a heart bond between two souls that is the strongest at the time of transition. Love comes out to greet you, wearing the form that will be most meaningful to you at the time.”  – Jan Price

Gone and Back Again

Dr. George Ritchie, Jr., now deceased, experienced a near-death experience from pneumonia while serving as an Army private in Texas. He found himself walking around the medical ward. When he returned to his room, he noted that his body had been covered by a sheet. The room became overly bright and Ritchie found himself before Jesus. He was shown other realms then told to return to his body. As he was being taken to the morgue someone noticed movement in his chest. He was given a shot of adrenaline and returned to life.

The Famous author Ernest Hemingway once included a personal near-death experience in his novel, “Farewell to Arms,” in which he described the character Frederic Henry who heard a sound, saw a flash and experienced the hot blast of an open furnace door before leaving his body. In his own experience, Hemingway experienced an NDE when he was wounded in World War I near Fossalta, Italy.

“I felt my soul or something coming right out of my body, like you’d pull a silk handkerchief out of a pocket by one corner. It flew around and then came back and went in again and I wasn’t dead anymore. … Dying is a very simple thing.I’ve looked at death and really I know.” – Ernest Hemingway

It’s All Consciousness Anyway

Some scientists believe that life is the illusion, and we are all connected like a giant “hologram of light.”

“Now he has departed from this strange world a little ahead of me. That means nothing. People like us, who believe in physics, know that the distinction between past, present, and future is a stubbornly persistent illusion.” – Albert Einstein, physicist, on the death of a friend.

From my research, it appears scientific studies have yet to determine the mystery around the conscious mind’s ability to transcend the physical body and function when no heartbeat or pulse can be detected, enabling the person having the near-death experience to describe in detail what is happening in the physical world (medical efforts taken to save the person’s life). Likewise, it’s difficult to explain the ability of Buddhist master monks to cease bodily functions and requirements for days while meditating. The practice, called Tukdam, allows the monks to go into a state called Ground Luminosity where they do not require food or drink and don’t move for 3 or 4 days until they come out of the meditation.

Psychic Fun: The Shell Game

This is a psychic practice you can do with a friend. Find several objects that are small enough to hide beneath a coffee cup. Look at the objects, and hover your hand just above each to “feel them.” Now take three similar coffee cups and label them 1, 2, 3. Hide the objects beneath the cups. Move the cups around the table (like a shell game) so neither you nor your friend knows what is beneath each cup. Take turns placing your hand above each cup then writing down what you believe is beneath the cup. This exercise will help you with psychic abilities by enabling you to see beyond the physical realm.

Have fun!

UFO Activity is on the Increase Around the World

Psychic Viewpoint

Have you ever seen a UFO? Did you shrug it off thinking your eyes were just playing tricks on you, or perhaps it was a sun flare, a meteor, or a military aircraft being tested? There’s a good chance that what you really saw was an Unidentified Flying Object.

Almost 200,000 Sightings Reported

There have been many UFO sightings over the last couple of years. UFOHunters.com has tracked 196,097 on an interactive map. United States UFO hotspots have been reported in Florida, (Atlanta) Georgia, New Jersey, Maryland, Massachusetts, (Houston and Dallas) Texas, (San Diego) California, (Chicago) Illinois, Connecticut and elsewhere.

In Connecticut alone, there were 93 reported sightings in 2018 and six so far this year. A Southington, CT resident reported seeing a silver “triangular shaped object” rapidly descending to the ground along Route 84 at 6:30 in the morning. He estimated where he thought the object landed but there was nothing there. “Kept looking for any orange glow and or smoke but nothing.”

One man reported seeing a UFO while pumping gas at a Sandy Springs, Georgia, Kroger store in June 2018. (I’ve been to this Kroger Store!) He was surprised to see a uniquely shaped object hovering over nearby trees and buildings, saying “nearly as quickly as it appeared, it vanished again into thin air.” He filed a description of the event on MUFONSM, which claims to be the world’s “oldest and largest civilian UFO investigation and research organization.”

UFO Researchers Report Life-Changing Experiences

Another renowned research organization, FREE (The Dr. Edgar Mitchell Foundation for Research into Extraterrestrial and Extraordinary Encounters) conducted a three-tier public study in 2016, reaching out to people via social media, radio, magazines and websites.  The results were interesting. More than 2,000 people who responded to the survey reported seeing a UFO, and 1,390 had seen a non-human intelligent being (NHIB). Approximately 85 percent of those who had seen an NHIB said the experience was positive, while 71 percent felt that they experienced expanded consciousness as a result.

Study participants indicated that they were either missing time or had extra time (meaning they arrived at their destination more quickly than expected).

The National UFO Reporting Center (www.nuforc.org) maintains a database of all sightings. The organization provides a summary description of all sightings by state, year and date.

UFOs Have Been Visiting Us Since Ancient Times

Three thousand years ago, the ancient Egyptians recorded alien sightings on hieroglyphic panels.

“The Temple of Seti I at Abydos has a hieroglyphic panel that bears symbols resembling a helicopter, spaceship and jet planes. These hieroglyphic panels were made three to five thousand years ago, when man had no idea about these modern-day vehicles.” – Kim Jones, proofofalien.com

The first U.S. sighting of a UFO was made by pilot Kenneth Albert Arnold on June 24, 1947 on a clear day north of Mt. Rainier in Washington state. He was 9,200 feet in the air when he saw what looked like bright flashes. Upon closer inspection he noticed a series of saucer-like shapes. He tracked their movement and determined they traveled 50 miles in just under 2 minutes or approximately 1,200 miles per hour. Read his story here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kenneth_Arnold_UFO_sighting.

UFOs in Georgia: My First Experience

My own interest in UFOs began when I was a news anchor for a small radio station in North Georgia in the mid-1990s. One day, a young girl and others in her community called the radio station to report a UFO flying over the area. Click here to hear the radio story. What I did not report as part of the story was that a number of planes were dispatched from Dobbins Air Force base in Marietta, Georgia (approximately 60 miles away) shortly after the UFO was sighted. After I heard the planes overhead, I called Dobbins Air Force base for a comment. To my amusement, an Air Force spokesman would not confirm that they dispatched jets to chase a UFO, only that the jets caused a sonic boom.

UFOs in Central Florida

Image by Thor_Deichmann on PixabayIn the late 1990’s, I was traveling with a friend on Interstate 4 in Florida (between Daytona Beach and Orlando) when we spotted a series of seven silver discs flying in an intricate pattern as we traveled west. The unidentified flying objects flew in formation along the Interstate for approximately 45 minutes before disappearing. The unusual activity caused a serious slowdown in westbound traffic as people watched what was taking place in the night sky! I was not able to take a photograph or video of what I saw, but I will never forget it.

Channeling ET

George Van Tassel, known as the original space channeler, learned about aliens when he visited what he claimed to be a Venusian spaceship. He moved to the desert and established the first UFO meeting center in 1947. He became known for his ability to channel a group of extraterrestrial beings called Ashtar, later called Ashtar Command. Mr. Van Tassel passed away in 1978 just weeks before he was to unveil Integraton, a formula designed to assist people with time travel and human longevity.  https://www.exopolitics.org/tag/george-van-tassel/Integration.

One of the first people to claim that extraterrestrials walked around our planet was Ruth Shick Montgomery, a well-known news journalist from the Nixon era. Following her retirement from her news career, Mrs. Montgomery began channeling information on the topics of extraterrestrials and reincarnation into a series of books including Aliens Among Us and Companions Along the Way. She also spoke of a term she called Walk-Ins, which are extraterrestrials that inhabit the body of someone who is ready to depart, a type of soul exchange.

Psychic Fun: Meditate to Open Up Your Awareness

One of the best ways to improve psychic awareness is to take time to sit in silence. Use a timer and set it for 10 minutes then just sit. Don’t fight thoughts just let them fade and focus on your breath. Breath in equals new energy. Breath out means breathing out your cares and concerns. Essentially creating a new you with every breath. If your mind begins to stray focus on the in and out breaths.

What does silence mean? Silence means allowing your thoughts to flow through rather than focusing on them. Also, if you are sitting outside, try to refrain from judging things around you while you are sitting in silence. What do I mean by that? If you are sitting outside and you notice a bird, don’t name the bird. Just look at the bird. If you feel a breeze on your face, don’t say, “What a delightful breeze.” Just feel the breeze. Sitting in silence will allow you to experience the present moment in all of its multi-layered wonder.

Eckhart Tolle, author of A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life’s Purpose, says it best:

“Silence is Golden; it has divine power and immense energy. Try to pay more attention to the silence than to the sounds. Paying attention to outer silence creates inner silence: the mind becomes still. Every sound is born out of silence, dies back into silence, and during its life span is surrounded by silence. Silence enables the sound to be. It is an intrinsic but unmanifested part of every sound, every musical note, every song, and every word. The unmanifested is present in this world as silence. All you have to do is pay attention to it.”

Above all else, be patient with yourself. Good luck!

Psychic Intuition in Animals

Psychic Viewpoint

Ever wonder what your dog or cat is staring at when you see nothing at all? Could it be a ghost? When you see something out of the corner of your eye, you may shrug it off as being a figment of your imagination. Animals don’t judge whether something is real or not, they simply react to the change in the environment. Also, because dogs and cats have a heightened sense of hearing and smell and sight, they may sense something we cannot detect.

Stories abound about dogs acting oddly – pacing, barking, running, whimpering – as if sensing a ghostly presence. Dogs see some of the ultraviolet spectrum (which we cannot see), and can hear higher frequencies, which may be why they sense ghosts more often than we do.

A woman named Lacy was asleep along with her husband and Great Dane, Bellatrix. In the middle of the night she heard a man say hello. She shrugged it off until she heard the man say the word again. This time Bellatrix heard it too and began growling and barking at the ceiling.

“The belief that dogs are in tune with the spirit world, or have some sort of precognition which allows them to anticipate ominous events, is not just something from the distant past. It persists today.”

– Dr. Stanley Coren, Psychology Today

When a pet parent passes away before the pet, pets may still be able to see their parent in spirit form and respond accordingly. In her book, Tails of the Afterlife, Peggy Schmidt writes about a lady named Del Johnsen who left behind seven pets when she passed away. Several people reported seeing her animals gather in a particular spot each day, wriggling around with joy, as if they are being petted by their deceased “pet mom.”

When providing psychic readings, I will often notice “ghost pets,” follow their owner into the room where I am giving a reading, especially if the pet has recently passed away. This tells me that love that is shared always remains, even after pets die.

Oftentimes, pets perceive danger before we do.

Pet Saviors

I will never forget the time I had a fire in the kitchen of my home. I was walking down the hallway when my little black cat, Pretty Girl, came streaking towards me in a sprint while meowing loudly. I heard in my head, “the kitchen is on fire.” I ran to the kitchen and put out the fire before it was out of control, thanks to my cat. She is my hero as she saved me, her fur buddies and the house that day. 

There are many stories about pets who protect their humans in dangerous situations as well. Holly, a domesticated short-hair calico cat, was just a year old when she came to the rescue of a father and his three-year-old son. A pair of dogs were attempting to attack the little boy while he and his dad were outside. The cat leaped into action and drew the dogs away and into the house where a battle ensued. It took two people to pry one of the dogs and the cat apart. She survived. After that fateful day, the cat began guarding the inside perimeter of the house and the little boy’s room on a daily basis.

Feline Comfort in Their Final Hours: Oscar the Nursing Home Cat

Then there’s the story out of a Providence, Rhode Island concerning a cat who was adopted in 2005 by the Steere House Nursing and Rehabilitation Center. In more than 100 cases, Oscar would choose to nap next to a patient who would die within a couple of hours. Oscar has been the subject of multiple books about him and was featured in an article in the New England Journal of Medicine.

Extra Sensory Perception in the Wild

Animals in the wild have the ability to sense not only danger, but weather-related disasters as well. In 2004, villagers in Bang Keoy, Thailand, noticed a herd of buffalo lift their heads, look out towards the sea, then scurry to higher ground. Those people that followed the animals to higher ground survived a cataclysmic tsunami.

In 373 B.C., in the Greek city of Helice, it was recorded that rats, snakes and weasels left the city shortly before a devastating earthquake happened.

In 1975, in Haicheng in Liaoning Province, China, scientists noticed farm animals and birds acting strangely. When scientists looked at other changes such as a drop in ground water levels, they decided to act and evacuated the city. Shortly after, a 7.3 magnitude earthquake occurred, resulting in the death of more than 2,000 people. The situation could have been far worse, as the city had a total population of 1.5 million.

In my experience, wild birds change their tune when a tornado is about to occur. I’ve noticed they disappear in the trees and go silent just before it strikes. Do animals feel slight tremors in the ground or electrical changes in the air indicating extreme weather, or are they psychically attuned?

Wild Animals Come to the Rescue

Domesticated pets are not the only ones who save human beings in tough situations; wild animals have been known to come to the rescue as well.

In 2007, a young man named Kevin Hines attempted suicide by jumping off the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco. The jump did not kill him, but it did break his back and shatter his vertebrae. Unable to swim to shore and starting to sink, he felt something brushing him and looked down to find a sea lion nudging him to keep him above water until authorities could rescue him.

In March 2012, Robert Biggs of Paradise, California, was watching a mother bear and her cubs from a safe distance. In the next moment, Biggs was struggling to survive as a mountain lion attacked him unexpectedly from behind. Who should come to the rescue but the momma bear, who pulled the cat off of Biggs and fought with the mountain lion until the mountain lion ran away.

They Came to Say Goodbye

One of my favorite stories concerning animal intuition comes from South Africa. Lawrence Anthony, a conservationist and author, rehabilitated rogue, wild elephants at the Thula Thula game preserve. Known as the Elephant Whisperer, Anthony had a knack for calming the rescued elephants and establishing bonds of trust and love. The day Anthony died, the elephants somehow sensed his passing. Two herds of elephants traveled for miles to Anthony’s home to mourn the death of the man they loved. They stayed for two days to say goodbye.

“This man’s oh-so-abundantly loving heart offered healing to these elephants, and now, they came to pay loving homage to their friend.” – Rabbi Leila Gal Berner, PhD

Psychic Fun: Linking Telepathically with Pets

For several years now, I’ve attempted to link telepathically with my pets. My old dog Charlie Bear and I were telepathically linked, which was convenient, as I never had to call his name out loud for him to come to me or respond to my commands. These days, my animals hear me, but that doesn’t mean they choose to listen or respond (stubborn!). That said, here are some steps you can use to communicate with your pet on a telepathic level. (Steps provided by howstuffworks.com).

  1. Relax and calm your mind.
  2. Use your mind to connect with your animal’s energy. (Feel it).
  3. Call out your pet’s name telepathically to get your pet’s attention.
  4. Ask your pet a question by visualizing a picture in your mind. Wait for a response. You may hear a childlike voice or you may see pictures. Note: I once heard my chihuahua speak in a childlike voice, which was cool and a little unnerving.
  5. Acknowledge to your pet that you received a response.

Good Luck!

Becoming a Psychic Sleuth: Psychics Who Work with the Law

Psychic Viewpoint

Psychics see visions (like a brief clip from a video), receive impressions (smell the earth, see leaves and glimpses of people and expressions), hear words from the dead and “feel” how they died (a sharp pain in the chest, a stomach ache, choking sensation, etc.), but may not always be able to pinpoint the location where the body can be found.  I am one of them.
