OBEs and Visits from the Other Side
Time is fluid in other dimensions, which enables spirits, higher beings and angels to visit us and allows us to travel through time and have Out of Body Experiences. Those spirits that have unfinished business, or prefer remaining here, sometimes stay behind. It doesn’t mean they are in pain, far from it. It simply means they are not yet ready to let go.
Astral Projection, also called an Out of Body Experience (OBE) can occur in several ways: via meditation, as we near sleep, due to extreme physical effort and when we have a near death experience. Stories abound concerning people who leave their bodies during surgery. Patients often describe hovering above the operating table and seeing all that takes place during the operation. Afterwards, they describe in detail what they have seen.
Typically the experience includes such factors as: a sense of being dead; a feeling of peace and painlessness; hearing of various non-physical sounds, an out-of-body experience; a tunnel experience (the sense of moving up or through a narrow passageway); encountering “beings of light” and a God-like figure or similar entities; being given a “life review” and a reluctance to return to life. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Out-of-body_experience
Downtown Athens, Georgia Circa 1860
During my first OBE, I found myself traveling into the past purely by accident.
I lived in an apartment while attending college at the University of Georgia in Athens, GA. One day, I decided to take a well deserved afternoon nap following a night of study. As I was about to slip into unconsciousness, I suddenly found myself in Athens as it existed in the 1860s.
I saw a trio of women in the front parlor of their house; they were having a party. I then saw them traveling in a carriage down a dirt covered street (now a paved main road). I traveled to downtown Athens and met an Irishman at an open market and more. Just as suddenly I dropped back into my body. Once I got over the shock of it, I grabbed my purse and drove quickly to the history center where I verified with a historian everything I had seen. He even showed me an image of the three women (who it turned out were sisters). He said to me, “Most people don’t know this part of the history of Athens, how did you discover the information?” I smiled, gave a vague answer, and left.
Einstein and the General Theory of Relativity
The idea of time travels first appeared on the radar when Albert Einstein proposed the general theory of relativity, which demonstrated that an object’s momentum is determined when measured in relation to something else. However, other factors, such as the pull of gravity and the curvature of the earth can change an object’s momentum. The one constant, when measured, is the speed of light. The closer an object gets to the speed of light, the slower an object travels. Taking this concept a step further, Einstein proposed the idea of the space-time continuum where space exists in three dimensions (up-down, left-right and forward-backward) and time. All factors impact objects in motion: therefore, objects in motion appear to move more slowly than objects at rest.
“The distinction between past, present and future is only a stubbornly persistent illusion.” – Albert Einstein (when commenting about the death of his friend).
The Theory of Biocentrism and the Afterlife
More recently, Robert Lanza, MD, says that it’s consciousness and life, not space and time, that defines the universe and reality as we know it. For example, time seems to drag on when we are doing something we don’t like to do versus something we do like to do. Time hasn’t changed, just our perception of it. Likewise, the theory of quantum physics proposes that energy and matter are composed of particles and waves which can exist in multiple states simultaneously, but if observed, energy (such as a light photon) measures only as particles when observed. In December 2017, physicists from the University of Cambridge were able to demonstrate that wave function (movement) can be measured without looking at particles because particles leave tags to define the path of the wave. The experiments at Cambridge confirm both theories.
We are Energy
Human beings are composed of atoms (electrons, protons and neutrons) and empty space, kinetic mass and binding energy called gluons, which keeps it all together. If space and time are continuous, and we are energy, where does all of that energy go when we die? Depending on your beliefs, if we go back to a state of energy, and we no longer have earthly needs or human emotions, then it becomes much easier to rejoin our Creator and exist in a state of Universal Consciousness/Higher Consciousness until the time comes when we decide we want to rejoin the “land of the living,” or not.

Unearthly Visits from the Other Side
As a clairvoyant, I am accustomed to visitors from the spirit world. Sometimes they make their presence known by voice, as a physical being, as a mist, a feeling, or a thought. What has been most perplexing is when I have an experience with people in spirit form before they die. I’ve researched this topic many times and have not found an adequate answer as to why this phenomenon occurs. I can only surmise that these visits are due to the fluidity of time and bending of time and space. In these situations, the individual or individuals are in energy form and simply travel ahead of the physical person prior to death.
Where is My Mommy?
Three days prior to September 11, 2001, I saw a little girl in my front yard. For three days she repeated the phrase, “Where is my mommy? I can’t find my mommy.” It broke my heart. I knew something terrible was about to happen, and this little girl was going to die. I told her, “Honey, your mom is not here yet, but she will be with you soon.” I attempted to console her the best way I knew how. For three days, I would see that little girl now and again standing in my front yard. Each time, we would say variations of the same things. Because the event still affects me, I’ve waited until now to look her up in the news coverage of the 9-11 terrorist attacks. I’ve never forgotten her face.
I found an image of her today. Her name was Juliana Valentine McCourt. She was on the ill-fated United Flight 175 that crashed into the south tower. She was four years old. Read her story here: http://www.legacy.com/sept11/story.aspx?personid=91677
Jim Always Made Me Laugh
In 2005, I lost a lifetime friend named Jim Warner. He died of cancer. At 1 a.m. the morning of his death, he showed up in physical form. I knew the time because my dog started barking. My boyfriend looked out the window and said, “Someone is beside your car,” and he grabbed his keys. As soon as my dog realized she was barking at a ghost, she whimpered, tucked her tail between her legs and ran inside her doghouse. I was flattered that my dear friend Jim had come to say goodbye. Meanwhile, before I could stop him, my boyfriend had jumped into his truck to chase down the “stranger.”
Although I knew who it was, I did not stop my boyfriend from leaving as I did not know how to explain the apparition. After all, I never told him I was psychic or that I had ghostly visitors. I had to laugh at Jim’s sense of humor. He was making my boyfriend chase a ghost, especially since Jim had seemingly raced up a nearby hill at record speed to get in his own vehicle and drive away.
I’ve always been told that people go back to the age they like best when they die. Standing there, Jim looked like he was in his 20s again. With his broad shoulders and long blonde hair, he looked FANTASTIC. I smiled and thought, good for you. You are out of pain and happy once again. Jim died at 11 a.m. that day. His legacy is a disc golf course, which was named after him.
