Is there Life After Life? ?
Messages from the other side
So what happens when we die? None of us really know, though many of us have theories and experiences which indicate that life does go on beyond the grave.
Everything is energy and when we pass, our energy leaves our body. We may not know where we go. But all the indications are that become an energy form which is tangible, just not as dense as the physical body. Energy does not go anywhere when we die, you can not kill energy. It HAS to go somewhere. So while our physical form stops functioning, our soul and spirit lives on.
This is not unrelated to science and quantum physics. Scientists can now photograph the energy of our Aura, with Kirlian photography. It is possible to capture energy on a photograph. There are countless photographs out there on the internet and in private collections which show similar phenomenon. Photographs of energy imprints, orbs and ghostly apparitions show us that energy does not have to be encapsulated in a physical body to be real.
Listen to the way my partner and colleague at Best American Psychics puts it. Brian Hunter American Medium based in LA *It has been my observation and speculation that when people die, their spirit leaves their body before their body actually dies. Some people have trouble understanding why soldiers and others can do acts like jumping on top of grenades willingly to their certain death without hesitation while others fear and contemplate before crossing a street. I believe there are moments when people are in a very spiritual state and all fear leaves them and love takes its place. The person is filled with acceptance. This state of being allows them to do anything, and I believe is actually the moment that separation from the body begins. By the time the body takes the physical hit, they are already out of their body.*
Brian has done a lot of work with spirits past and present, and his findings are that death is a physical transition into a lighter, freer way of being. When we die we fully inhabit our light body and soul space unrestricted by the limitations of the human body. Literally our spirit flies free. In our bodies as human beings we have to deal with the restrictive emotions of fear and panic when faced with pain. But if Brian’s quote above is to be believed, it seems that at the moment of death we enter a serene and spiritual place, even if our death is untimely. There is some comfort in the thought that the soul leaves the body before the final death blow or throw. Brian is talking about the heroic act of a soldier who will lay down his life for his friends. But there are many more stories which demonstrate that this phenomenon of the spirit leaving the body before the physical body dies is quite typical.
Felicity Warner is a midwife to the dying and she eases the transition of the soul from this life to the next in her work. It is her observation that some souls resist the light, while others leap towards it as Brian indicates above.  Felicity has ministered to those who try to hold onto life, and finds the words *You’ll be met by loved ones. GO with the flow, go to the light* helpful.
People who fear death and resist it usually just need this nudge in order to cross the bridge into the light. It may of course be our karmic decision to reincarnate quickly, in which case our soul comes back into another physical form inhabiting a new body for yet another round of the human experience. The Soul’s energy does not get destroyed when we die. We simply take on another form. We either stay in the spirit world for a time to recuperate, or we come back down to earth to finish unfinished business.
Dr Moody is the leading authority on the ‘near-death experience’; a phrase he coined in the late seventies. Dr. Moody’s research into the phenomenon of near-death experience began in the 1960′s. The New York Times calls him “the father of the near-death experience.” His best-selling books including *Life after Life* and *Reunions*, and he has written numerous articles on the subject in academic and professional literature. Dr. Moody continues to capture enormous public interest and generate controversy with his ground-breaking work on the near-death experience and what happens when we die.
Dr Moody’s ethos and experience is that consciousness does not depend on the brain, but is in fact much richer when it is freed from the brain. Dr Moody has worked closely with fellow scientist Dr. Eben Alexander, an internationally acclaimed neurosurgeon and author of the New York Times’ number one bestseller *Proof of Heaven*. Together they have discussed and researched the phenomenon of the near death experience, and their work gives us ample evidence that life continues after life.
Dr Alexander’s own near death experience left him clinically dead for a week, which is unlike any other near death experience ever detailed. “During my coma my brain wasn’t working improperly,” he writes in his book. “It wasn’t working at all.” During his travels in heaven while he was clinically dead, he met the beautiful biological sister he had never met on the earth plane, and received comforting emotional healing from this loss that he had never completely processed. Dr Alexander’s experience is perhaps the most compelling evidence we have that there is indeed some kind of afterlife. His account fully verifies that meaningful experiences and emotional connections continue after we die. This was the experience of a man of science, a neurosurgeon who was as cynical as the most hardened skeptic. Until of course he DIED and went on his own magical, spiritual journey on the other side. His story brings comfort to many and is one of the strongest indicators that the stories we hear and messages we receive from deceased loved ones are not just figments of our imagination.
I am always interested to hear your accounts and stories of the messages you have received from loved ones who have passed on. Do you have photographs which capture unexplained phenomenon or images? Do you have your own near death experience you would love to share? If so please email me @ sarahdelamerehurding@gmail.com
Here are some of the amazing personal stories of people who stepped forward when I asked this same question this week on facebook. These testimonies should bring comfort to all those who mourn a loved one. Yes of course we grieve the physical loss and not being able to hold and hug the person we have lost. This pain does not go away. But we can take heart that the soul never dies and that there really is life after life. And that our loved ones can still reach us and we can still communicate with them, once we know how. I do a lot of grief counselling and mediumistic work. So if you do need help connecting with your loved ones do check out my work on www.sarahdelamer.com for further information. I am always here to help any of you who needs this.

Hi Sarah, I’d like to tell you about the experience I had, I lost my dad to a tragic accident in my home on October 12. My dad had lived with me for a number of years, because I didn’t want to leave him on his own. I spent my dad’s last remaining hours telling him he wasn’t allowed to leave us, and that I wouldn’t be able to cope without him. Eventually I gave in and told him it was ok for him to go. He then peacefully passed away. The first time I noticed he was there with me was the day I buried him. I was woken by a really strong smell of flowers, which my husband also could smell. There were no flowers whatsoever in the house. A few nights later I was woken by someone hammering down my bedroom door. When I checked there was nobody there. Another time when I was in my dad’s old room, a cup he owned, fell out of the wardrobe with 20 euros inside, even though I had thoroughly tidied away all his personal stuff. At this time I kept having the same dream over and over. In the dream my dad was talking to me and raising his cup of tea to me. Finally my brother was staying with us for a while, one evening before he moved out, he came downstairs and saw in my kitchen a misty presence of a man who had his head bowed, and looked very like my father in demeanour.

Hi Sarah, Here are some signs I have received from a couple of people who have passed on, as well as one of my dogs. Many months (perhaps almost a year) after my maternal grandmother passed she came to me in a dream and gave me hug. It was very fleeting, but meant a great deal to me. It was the only time she has ever done it. My dog Kushi, who was a Chow, Chow and my beloved darling for 15.5 years, came to me in a dream during the toughest time in my life, just after my daughter, Cecilia, was stillborn (Aug 2012). Kushi had never really shown me signs or came to me in a dream before that. But now she shows up periodically in my dreams to say hi. The first time though, I heard a click of a metal gate and then saw myself standing at my back yard fence and then saw her running through my neighbor’s yard. She ran right up to the fence and was so very happy and smiling. She looked up at me and I felt a great sense of peace and also felt like she was telling me everything was going to be ok. In a way I think she was letting me know she would look after Cecilia in heaven. Cecilia is a very strong soul and has given me so many signs to me personally and via friends too. Basically each day there is something. In general she sends me birds, butterflies, bugs (which I find hilarious), feathers, pennies, songs on the radio, and once she messed with a CD I was playing. On the year anniversary of her stillbirth date I asked for a specific sign from her and she granted my wish. I asked for her to send me a hawk (we have them where I live, but they are not something I see everyday, unlike other birds). We went to a local arboretum to release butterflies for her that day, and flying in the sky, above the butterfly bush we were near, was a beautiful hawk.

Hey Sarah my story is a few days after my dad passed away I was outside putting out clothes on the line for my mum. Something caught my eye. It was a presence of a man standing at the top of our gate. I never have told this story to my mum. But whenever I look up to the gate I see a man all dressed in black with a big hat on him. It is quite scary to see as he is not human. But I know this is a sign from my Granny saying goodbye. Another thing keeps happening. I often feel someone playing with my chain around my neck. It only happens when I have my chain on. I am not scared of this happening but it is odd.

My experience with the dead. I have bad eyesight and wear glasses. Not long after my grandmother died, I was awoken by someone sitting on my bed, it was very early, like 5am. I turned and thought it was my sister waking me up (she had the same hairstyle, a 30s Bob), so I asked what was wrong, nothing was wrong. I asked what had happened, nothing had happened, she just wanted to talk to me. Well, I’m not the best in the morning. But she said she had someone who wanted to talk to me (which would have been my grandfather, as I didn’t speak to him before he died). I asked where they were, but she kept trying to stall me, like she was changing the subject. So I had a go at her and said to get out if it wasn’t important. Although, after she had gone, my mind didn’t settle, so I went storming across the landing to see what my sister wanted. Only to find, that I had woken her up and I got an alarm clock thrown at my head (we can be alike). I ran back to bed and hid.

When I was 16, my grandmother took really ill, she was 95, so I quit my studies to look after her. My parents died when I was very young, I don’t remember them, it was always me, my brother and my grandmother. Sitting up late in hospital one night talking, I told her I was afraid if she died because I’d be on my own, she was my best friend, she held my hand and we made a promise to each other that whoever died first would come back to let the other know they were fine. Two months later my grandmother died. After a few months, I eventually gave up on my grandmother coming back to reassure me. A friend of my brother was in his house with us and she had just bought a new mobile phone. Not knowing how to work it, she handed it straight to me to set it up for her. As I was fiddling with the menu, a call came through… I recognized the number and answered it… Nothing but dead air. Hanging up it took me a couple of seconds to realize that the phone shouldn’t have rang. No one had the number, I’d just taken it out of the box. It started ringing again… The number was 01232 721784, my grandmother’s number. Her phone was disconnected a few weeks before she died. I believe it was my grandmother fulfilling her promise.

I am a 13 old boy and live in Ireland. I’m going to tell you some facts before I tell you what my story is. My grandmother had died 6 years before this story happened and she always loved my mother very much. It might have been our imaginations as it was really early (06:00). I have never been good at writing so please let me know if I have made a mistake. It happened a couple of years ago so I might forget some minor details. Everything that I tell you is real, so here I go. It was the morning of my confirmation, me and my mum were about to brush our teeth in the bathroom. It was a normal day. Nothing had happened so far but a nice thing is about to happen. When my mum opened the cabinet to get the toothpaste, she and I both saw my Grandmother’s wedding ring fall out. It was precious to us so we bent down to get it quickly and another thing fell out, it was a perfume saying “Happyiness” on the bottle. Me and my mother both looked at each other and went to pick them up, as we did a lovely scent of lavender filled the house as my brothers could smell it downstairs (This same smell was at my grandmothers funeral). Me and my mum were both pleased by this and happy. Was this just a little a little message from her to say “I’m still here” or was it just a message saying she was happy about me making my confirmation, I will never know.

My uncle passed away in the late summer of 2009 due to lung cancer. We were very close, and when I heard the news he had died I was devastated. There’s one incident surrounding his death that follows me to this day, one that I have never told anyone about. I was babysitting at the time, and the children were in the next room while I was watching TV. It was about 7:40. I was just eating some popcorn when my phone rang. Startled, I let go of the bowl and it rolled to my side, spilling its contents all over the floor. I cursed and looked at my phone. It was my uncle. This was strange. He was in the hospital. “Hello?” I said. There was silence on the other end of the line. I repeated myself, but there was no answer. “Hello, (Uncle’s name)? Hey, hi?” I said again. I became irritated. After another few moments of silence I hung up and began to clean up the mess I had made. The phone call had been odd, and a weight had formed in my stomach. I suddenly felt scared for my uncle. Visions of one of those heartbeat monitors going flat next to my uncle’s bed clouded my mind and I couldn’t rest easily for the rest of the evening. Later that night my mother called. I knew from the moment I picked up that something terrible had happened. “Hello, (my name)?” She said. Her voice was shaking. “Yes, Mum, what’s wrong?” I said. “It’s about (Uncle’s name), he’s…” She didn’t need to continue. I was completely frozen, staring into the distance as the reality hit me. My uncle was dead. My beloved, poor uncle was dead.
When the parents came home, I walked to my house. It was a short distance away, only about 10 or so minutes. My father and mother were on the couch. She was crying. I snuggled in between them and began crying too. Then my dad started. We were all crying. Some time later, when the strange phone call popped into my mind, I asked my mother what the time he died at. She said it was 7:40. Around the same time as the phone call. I nodded, thoughts racing through my head. How could my uncle possibly call me if he was dead at that time?  Sometimes I swear I can smell cigarette smoke in my bedroom at night. I have never smoked in my life, nor have my mother or father. At other times, when I’m alone and my parents are out, I feel my uncle close by. It has never frightened me though, because I know he’s watching over me.

My wonderful Granddad died about 7 years ago now from Alzheimer’s disease. He never knew me or my whole family for around 4 years. I never went to his wake because I just didn’t want to see him like that. About 3 weeks after his death I started to feel like someone was watching me in the house. One night I was watching the T.V when I heard things smashing in the kitchen, I ran out and the cupboard door was open and all the glasses and plates had fell out. When we moved house the new owner would ask my mother did you feel anything thing in this house because every time I go out when I return home all the lights are on and all the door’s in the house left open.  But now my dream. This is what happened, I walked into my Grandma’s house and sitting on the chair was my Granddad. I had just got a new job and he was asking me how it was going, and he also asked me about my life and how I was keeping. Then a very loud scream came from the kitchen we both walked down and there standing was my Grandma with her back turned to us, she then turned around she had an evil looking face, she then screamed really loud in my face. That’s when I woke up sweating. What could this dream mean? And remember my Granddad had Alzheimer’s so I was so happy to talk to him about my life even if it was just a dream. I still miss him everyday and wish he would visit again

I suddenly felt scared for my uncle. Visions of one of those heartbeat monitors going flat next to my uncle’s bed clouded my mind and I couldn’t rest easily for the rest of the evening. Later that night my mother called. I knew from the moment I picked up that something terrible had happened. “Hello, (my name)?” She said. Her voice was shaking. “Yes, Mum, what’s wrong?” I said. “It’s about (Uncle’s name), he’s…” She didn’t need to continue. I was completely frozen, staring into the distance as the reality hit me. My uncle was dead. My beloved, poor uncle was dead.

When the parents came home, I walked to my house. It was a short distance away, only about 10 or so minutes. My father and mother were on the couch. She was crying. I snuggled in between them and began crying too. Then my dad started. We were all crying. Some time later, when the strange phone call popped into my mind, I asked my mother what the time he died at. She said it was 7:40. Around the same time as the phone call. I nodded, thoughts racing through my head. How could my uncle possibly call me if he was dead at that time?  Sometimes I swear I can smell cigarette smoke in my bedroom at night. I have never smoked in my life, nor have my mother or father. At other times, when I’m alone and my parents are out, I feel my uncle close by. It has never frightened me though, because I know he’s watching over me.

My wonderful Granddad died about 7 years ago now from Alzheimer’s disease. He never knew me or my whole family for around 4 years. I never went to his wake because I just didn’t want to see him like that. About 3 weeks after his death I started to feel like someone was watching me in the house. One night I was watching the T.V when I heard things smashing in the kitchen, I ran out and the cupboard door was open and all the glasses and plates had fell out. When we moved house the new owner would ask my mother did you feel anything thing in this house because every time I go out when I return home all the lights are on and all the door’s in the house left open.  But now my dream. This is what happened, I walked into my Grandma’s house and sitting on the chair was my Granddad. I had just got a new job and he was asking me how it was going, and he also asked me about my life and how I was keeping. Then a very loud scream came from the kitchen we both walked down and there standing was my Grandma with her back turned to us, she then turned around she had an evil looking face, she then screamed really loud in my face. That’s when I woke up sweating. What could this dream mean? And remember my Granddad had Alzheimer’s so I was so happy to talk to him about my life even if it was just a dream. I still miss him everyday and wish he would visit again

 

Happy Holidays! 
Well I hope you are ready for a long hot summer, interspersed with the occasional dampness we have come to expect in Ireland. Think more muggy monsoon season than cold miserable and wet! We will certainly have the heat and some great days this summer. Plus opportunities to rise and shine with our dreams in tact.
Essentially, we have a lot to look forward to in the months ahead. Our heavenly forecast coming into 2014 has been a mixed experience it is true. This summer season things will be so much more settled than they have been. This is very much a year of two halves. At the top of the year Venus retrograde in Capricorn meant so many of us were still trawling over old issues. This created a time of deep reflection and reassessment. This energy raised many questions about our priorities and security. We have lately been seriously encouraged to decide what we most value in life. This summer will give us the opportunity to carry through our plans. 
During the Mid February Chinese New Year of the HORSE began our new year proper. This Year of the Horse will see what is  no longer good for us falling away. During the summer pressures and stress will ease for the first time in a long time. We are now fully experiencing Mars moving forward in LIBRA and we are being encouraged to embrace the future. Respect and honour your passions and ditch the doubts. Allow yourself to indulge your dreams and visions. It is time to be dynamic and enlivened by your choices and options. 
Back in February we still had Mercury Retrograde to deal with. This phenomenon is an illusion, a planet does not literally move backwards in the heavens. However, even this odd sensation can cause a lot of misfired communication, travel confusion and upset plans. To top it all April was then  a humdinger astrologically with two major eclipses and a Grand Cross in the heavens above. 
From June 7th we have been going through another Mercury retro experience which ran until July 2nd. You should not have been finding this one quite so challenging. Sometimes this tricky little planet can create some exciting scenarios even when flipping backwards. Mercury is the official messenger of the gods and as such commands communication. Keep communication straightforward and clear at this time. There can be genuine breakthroughs as you speak from the heart and get out of your own way. Tap into the truth of situations and this current energy can work well for you.
Mars action heats up and matches the intensity in our minds and hearts. We can look forward to increased progress and boosted personal power in situations. We still have Saturn and Pluto retrograde but this combination offers up deep final clearings. We can expect karma to balance and clarity to descend. This is an exciting way out of the scenarios and relationships that have been putting us under pressure. Focus and determination are never more important. 
For final conclusive actions and decisions let July get well under way. Now the Mercury Retrograde phase has ended, you can safely make major choices. Just be sure your arrangements are as water tight as possible. 
It is important to treat this first part of the summer with a healthy respect. Mars moving forward supports us as we think on our feet. But while Mercury, Saturn and Pluto are Retrograde we need to guard against deep anger and issues surfacing randomly. We need to be careful and keep a check on our patience levels at this time. The trends are essentially dynamic and amazing. But it is fully possible to mess a whole lot up with one wrong word or premature action. So be careful what you push for, never mind what you wish for. 
Particularly while Mercury was Retrograde we had to remain flexible and open to loved ones and life’s demands. We have much increased personal power at this time. But it does not mean we should be reckless. This is still an excellent time to reflect on the past if you are in anyway unclear what your decisions should be. Your increased intuition will work very much in your favour. So tune in and listen to the guidance of the universe at this time. In this supplement I give you many ways to enhance and work with your intuition. So do be wise and circumspect until you sense that things are nicely set up and ready.  
The current energies emphasise the importance of waiting for the time to be ripe.  Yes, you will have oodles of oomph and the renewed ability to think on your feet. But this must be tempered with wisdom and caution. The key really is to hone your psychic skills and learn to read energy. As I repeatedly say, everything is energy. Work with this and you really can expect some spectacular results this summer season. 
Look out for amazing coincidences at this time. Synchronicity is rife and we should all be receptive to the clues and guidance which surface as we go about our business. Remember that our life circumstances always reflect our choices. So take responsibility for what is happening now and take the time to forgive yourself if you really do feel you have taken a wrong road. There can be an amazing release with self forgiveness as well as renewed self confidence. So take this time to nurture yourself. It is never too late to embrace change which can be amazing and productive. 
Sometimes SPIRIT CAN BE SPOOKY, and we resist what is staring us in the face. Sure, we have free will independence and freedom of choice. Or do we? This is the burning question. Is our destiny pretty much set in stone; preordained by God and our chosen life plan ? I believe so yes.  The onus is on us to respond and embrace our destiny as it presents to us. When we run away, God and life will find us anyway, so there is really no point in resisting the inevitable. Resistance can be detrimental and only throws us into a repetitious loop where the old patterns go around and around in circles. When we resist we get no where; we are heading no where. We become led by our ego not guided by the light and God s plan for our lives.
It is much more productive to say ‘yes ‘and surrender to the moment and basically give God and life a chance to happen. This does not mean we have no control. Of course we can always say ’ no ‘and hold onto our interpretation of the past and how we think we should be compensated. Our expectations are a killer; sometimes literally.  So what is the answer when we find the way clear to go one way or another? Even though oftentimes the choice is apparently not clear. Generally the best way is to work with the universe as it presents things to us. These *things* can be open doors or red herrings but we so owe it to ourselves this summer to find out which is which and what is what. 
Never ignore what is presenting to you on a daily basis. There will either be a karmic reason for it, which allows you to finally balance things. Or there will be an amazing resolution and peace of mind. Usually it is a strange mixture of the two. But we really hold ourselves up and what can happen when we remain stuck over a person, place or situation. Sometimes the only way through is up, over and out the other side. 
Things will not fall into our lap at this time.*You’ve got to be in it to win it * . We must be responsive and proactive and not retreat from resolution. Be assured this is a good time for responding and embracing the future FULLY. Jupiter moving forward after such a long retrograde time facilitates action and luck NOW. Perhaps showing us new openings that look the same as they always did but with a twist. 
At this time do not be afraid to step into something that promises to be different. There is something comforting about what is familiar but it is time to breakthrough the comfort zone of the uncomfortable familiar. The familiar may well constitute the future. But with a different flavour. It is all about our ability to fully receive.

This summer embrace a CALMER, more centered approach. Access openings for clarity, focus and resolution. Are you going to review and renew or ditch, dig and dive. Might I suggest a weird and wonderful mixture of the two? Take this time to calmly assess even as you trust the universal magic which abounds. 
There is not the same need for practical pragmatism. So be receptive to your SOUL journey and the promise it holds. Remember the effective universal short cut of TRUST. Gambles are set to pay off and pay out. But only if we are clear and calm and have learned our lessons. We are human and sometimes we can only take on board so much. Our egos get in the way and we become limited and small in our thinking in an attempt to control things.
It is TIME to FULLY embrace our Divinity along with our humanity; then these breakthroughs can happen. Astrologically speaking much is now in place and set up and if you have been responsive, trusting and receptive against the odds this will now begin to manifest unusual and magical things. 
Sometimes lessons learned equate to blessings received. It is not all doom and gloom; especially not if you have done your home work and been attentive. 
So, this summer; read the signs, respond in kind and TAKE what is on offer …. Most crucially this means settling on ONE DIRECTION.
