Key themes from the Communications books illustrated by examples from 40+ years of mediumship.
Part Eleven: Afterlife interaction leads to irrefutable proof
Many years ago, while still working full time and concurrently seeking in my personal hours to develop my mediumship, I made a new friend as a result of a mutual love of model-making.
I subsequently met his wife and son, becoming a frequent visitor to their home and eventually deciding to share with them the fact that I was mediumistic.
Initially this seemed to have been a mistake, as in response to my reveal they were shocked, more than a little sceptical, and as much as said ‘prove it to us’. My friend’s wife was particularly interested in me ‘proving it’ by providing her with a reading. I obliged, recording the messages from some very enthusiastic and vocal spirits on cassette tape for her and describing at length and in great detail the family members I was communicating with.
To my dismay the lady stared blankly at me, her scepticism gaining strength as the reading unfolded. At its conclusion she told me she had been unable to recognise any of the personalities wishing to speak to her and that none of the information given by them meant anything to her.
Seven days later, however, her attitude regarding her reading had completely changed. In the interim she had phoned her mother, had played the recording for her and had been shocked when her mum began to sob as she listened to the tape. Tears rolling down her cheeks, she said she knew every family member and friend communicating, and also confirmed all the information that had been given by them (my friend’s wife was unaware of the many of her departed relatives – including one who had emigrated to America and had been amongst the communicators).
As you can imagine, from this point onwards my friends were considerably more open to the possibility of life after death and the reality of communication with departed friends and relatives. A further reinforcement was provided for them a few weeks later when, whilst visiting their home, I received an sudden urgent communication from a guiding influence which I passed on to my friend, emphasising that he needed to ask for protection for his car and his garage that evening, and that if he asked for that protection everything would be all right. I added that I had no idea why I’d been prompted to give him this unusual warning. He looked a little bemused but said he would do as he’d been asked.
When I next saw him he told me that every garage in the row of seven or eight that stood behind his house had been broken into during the night following the message… every garage, that is, with the exception of his. His was the only one that had escaped the criminal intrusions – all the others had suffered from forced entry, theft and damage to cars.
I recall these incidents because I often marvel at the evidence-building way in which the realties of life after death and communication with ‘departed’ spirits are introduced to those not initially open to such spiritual concepts – in this case my friends were seeking ‘proof’ and had been given exactly that in highly unusual ways that left them in no doubt that there are ‘more things in heaven and earth’, opening up their minds and hearts to a bigger picture of existence.
The way a spiritual message reveals its truth in its own time is often as important as the message itself… Meticulous behind the scenes planning and timing is at work, with the intention of waking souls to higher vibrational realties through the progression of a series of happenings that are known about in advance by ‘those upstairs’.
It’s a great pity, however, that our materially-based perspectives on life make it so difficult for us to accept that we are being contacted by those who have gone on ahead of us. It wasn’t always so, as the following short excerpt from an address given by Joseph soul group member ‘Silver Star’, taken from his communication with Jane and myself titled ‘The thinning of the Veil’ (featured in the Communications book Many Voices; One Mission) reveals:
‘There was a time when it was far easier for men and women to talk to the spirit worlds because there was not such a build-up of a history of physicality as there is now, and our job – your job – is to thin the veil. All the books that you are putting out and all the teachings that we give you are concerned with thinning the veil because, as you convince more people that there are different worlds, you thin the veil because they contribute to the global-consciousness and there will be areas that are thinner as a result.
‘We would like to see centres eventually where people come to pray and to meditate but also to take note of what they see and pick up spiritually. What is wrong with your spiritual circles on Earth is that people do not put aside a room or a time or an attitude of mind that will thin the veil. It is vitally important that you sit at the same time every time you sit in a circle because your mind, independently of you, then builds in that that hour is special …that hour is spiritual …that hour is a thinning of the veil. So, ritual is important but we look forward to centres being established that people can visit to divide this world that they perceive as being ‘real’ from the spiritual world. We look forward to a time when we don’t need the Big Indian’s* Boat or any of the other illusions that are used to transport people from this side of reality to a heightened state of reality.**’
Society’s increasing ‘worship’ of the material and deliberate sidelining of the spiritual has made our earthly journey a poorer, more isolated experience, with the subject of life after physical death seen at best as a topic to be held at bay and reluctantly discussed in hushed tones, and at worst to be dismissed as a naive fantasy.
Despite this, work goes on in higher dimensional realities to here and there provide irrefutable evidence of our continued existence once this particular journey has reached its conclusion.
Delivered by Joseph with the specific intent of demystifying the mystery and explaining precisely what lies ahead for each of us, I cannot recommend his third Communications book Your Life After Death too highly to any and all seeking a highly description of the afterlife coupled with the comfort of knowing as an absolute certainty that physical death is not an end but a new beginning…
… And there is absolutely nothing to fear.
