‘When you have solved all the mysteries of life you long for death, for it is but another mystery of life.’
Kahlil Gibran, 1883–1931
One of the great mysteries of life for most people is what will happen to us when we die. Do we just disappear into a black void never to be seen or heard from again, or is there an afterlife?
Throughout history religions have held out the promise of heavenly rewards to obedient followers who earned the keys to paradise. For others who did not adhere to the rules, the road ahead was full of eternal suffering and pain as punishment for their sins. Sadly, many people still have these beliefs today.
Fear and uncertainty surrounding death prompted me to explore the mysteries of our final journey. As a broadcaster and journalist researching program material, I found my interest piqued by spiritual and metaphysical subjects, prompting the study of astrology in 1991. Uncovering my psychic abilities soon followed, taking me down many fascinating paths. I conducted a spiritual development group for ten years, connecting with spirit guides and also doing readings.
In 1993 I met Judy, who helped me change my life. Her sudden death only four years later, though devastating, was the catalyst for my latent abilities as a medium to emerge. Judy, now residing in the world of spirit, has inspired and encouraged me to explore and write about the afterlife. Accepting the logical concepts of life after death and reincarnation, I was happy to oblige.
My metaphysics studies have proved to me the power of intention, paramount in any human endeavour. Once I’d committed to writing my first book, Afterlife, unexpected opportunities arose, astounding me with their scope, amazing me with insights, and bringing spirits and new people to my life-affirming quest.
When I opened my heart and mind to write, I was honoured and excited to connect to the bountiful, loving and inspiring energy of a new guide, simply called ‘M’. More about my relationship with this highly advanced master spirit will be explored and revealed later.
The afterlife—or as Judy appealingly called it, ‘the Heaven World’, when she spoke to me through the medium Ezio De Angelis—is invisible to us on earth. It exists in what is essentially another dimension.
After reading Afterlife many people contacted me to say how they had been inspired to make positive changes to their lives. Others said how grateful they were to be able to release the fear of death that they had previously felt. Once we can accept the fact that we do reunite with our loved ones when we pass over, this can take another load off our minds. When we can accept that the soul is indestructible and life is eternal, we realise there is no such thing as ‘death’. We can let go of our fears and truly live each day to the fullest. Judy and I have shared many past lives, and will see each other again when I, too, return home to the Heaven World.
We may regard the earthly civilisation we have created as complex, but it is just a tiny reflection of the vast size and scope of the spirit world. As my contact with those in the spirit world continued, I soon discovered that Afterlife had only scratched the surface.
No Goodbyes now takes us much deeper into this fascinating world.
