Past Speaker Dr Parti on Coast to Coast Radio Tuesday, August 23, 2016

Dr. Rajiv Parti was a speaker twice at Orange County IANDS  (an interest/support group) and one of my favorites of all time. I love this man probably because his transformation changed him from an arrogant, nasty, materialistic, shallow man, who wasn’t even pleasant to his wife and children, to the complete opposite in every way.

Here is the link to an excellent article written about him on Time.com

Today, this former not-a-nice-guy, is truly a new man, completely self-less and devoted to his mission.

He’ll be George Noory’s guest on Coast to Coast AM, Tues, Aug 23, 2016, first half of the show.  I tell you from the bottom of my heart, because you are a human being living your life cycle, this is relevant to you regardless of your religious background. Coast to Coast is on late in most markets, I believe, 10:00 to midnight. George starts with some news, Rajiv would probably come on about 10:20-10:30 pm. You can also listen live from C2C’s website: http://www.coasttocoastam.com or on KFI640’s AM website, www.kfi640.com.

Afterlife Interview with the Two San Bernardino Shooters

First, a little background on the Youtube Channel, ‘Channeling Erik‘.  Elise is the mother of Erik Medhus who, at 20 years old, took his own life on October 6, 2009. Overwhelmed with grief and despair, it propelled her to search for answers,  many of which came from an unexpected source…Erik, himself.  He began to visit friends and family, eventually sharing insight and wisdom from what he had learned from the Other Side. Each video on Channeling Erik explores the true nature of death, the afterlife, reality, the soul and the human experience — as told by Erik.

In the following interview translated by medium, Kim Babcock, you’ll notice that at 12:14, you hear Tashfeen Malik answer, “ISIS.” It’s clearly not Kim’s voice and overlaps with what she says next. Kim’s website:  www.kimbabcock.net

You’ll see a comment (excerpt below) from Rich Martini, a friend of OC IANDS and author of A Tourist’s Guide to Navigating the Afterlife and It’s a Wonderful Afterlife, www.RichMartini.com.

Rich said:  This clip is bound to cause controversy for those without any context. In the first portion of the session the “shooter” tries to explain what her spiritual reasons were for this event happening – and it’s aligned with the same stories I’ve heard from people under deep hypnosis (“flipside”) talking about previous lifetimes where they were considered “evil” or their actions were considered evil. She tries to explain how it fits into a spiritual progression, but hard for someone to wrap their mind around if they haven’t been exposed to this kind of information in the past. But in the second portion she gives something of her reasons for her actions from a human perspective – that idea of being so “filled with rage” that she couldn’t see others as anything but infidels, to use a religious term. But the roots of this rage come from so many places, from drone operators telling us how they’ve blown up wedding parties, videos of children in Syria talking about their families blown up by bombs, and that relentless feeling of powerlessness some people feel, which fuels their rage. It’s so fascinating that she tries to tie it together with the idea of the planet needing for people to “feel more connected” and I think she’s talking about seeing what our actions bring about. But again, this video will be extremely difficult for loved ones of victims to stumble across without any context – it’s not what Tashfeen says – but what thousands say over and over again in the research – that once we cross over, we feel no pain, have no trauma or sadness, and can see with clearer eyes why events occur. I think you did a fantastic job of interviewing her, and she even revealed a number of things (“new information”) that haven’t been revealed by the authorities – that it was his uncle who helped finance the operation, that there’s a written list of the other “soft” targets they might have visited afterwards, and they trained in Afghanistan (or a place just like it).

What would happen if more people experienced the afterlife prior to death​?

You’re invited to the September 12th, 2015 meeting of Orange County IANDS Support and Interest group in Tustin, CA to hear a fascinating talk and discussion.

​Nelson Abreu

Date:          Saturday, ​September 12, 2015

Time:         1:00-4:00 pm

Place:         Unity of Tustin, 14402 Prospect Ave., Tustin, CA
(Drive to the back of the church, turn left, and park.  Enter the 2nd door you come to).

Nelson Abreu from the International Academy of Consciousness​ (IAC)​ will lead a discussion on the positive effects and potential implications of the out-of-body experience for personal and social transformation. In addition to spontaneous or near-death OBEs which tend to bring positive behavioral changes and life mission inspiration to those who have them, intentional OBEs could provide a similar catalyst for development to a greater number of people.  Nelson will discuss how researchers and practitioners at IAC and other organizations are furthering this vision of a larger number of “multidimensionally-aware” individuals.

Nélson Abreu serves as vice-director of Research and Scientific Communication at International Academy of Consciousness (IAC). The ​electrical ​engineer, educator, and author began experiencing and studying transformative, “multidimensional” consciousness phenomena such as out-of-body experiences (OBEs) since 1998. Nelson enjoys sharing experiences and ideas based on his own research and what he has learned from colleagues and students he has encountered in the past 2 decades.  He teaches about OBEs, subtle energy, lucid dreaming, near-death experience, psychic and spiritual development at IAC since 2003.

His studies have encompassed consciousness and its relationship with extraordinary human experiences like out-of-body experience, subtle energy and psychometry, as well as economics, biological evolution, physics, and engineering.

Most recently, he joined leading and emerging minds in the field at the first International Congress of Consciousness Science in Portugal (May 2015), where he unveiled a sound-based system he co-developed to facilitate subtle energy and OBE states. He has presented at colleges ​all over the world.​

Guest speaker Michaela Chatterjee will talk about her experience with death as a 17 yr old

24f8f5c

Michaela Chatterjee will share her vivid near-death experience that occurred in 1994 when she was 17 years old.  On the way back from a family reunion, she was sleeping in the backseat when her family’s car was hit from behind resulting in a severe accident.  Michaela recalls the wind blowing in her face as she was strapped to the gurney on the side of the road. She was being wheeled to a helicopter that would airlift her to the hospital. The next thing she remembers is being engulfed by a white light around the same time she briefly flatlined during the airlift.  She will talk about her experience with death and how it helps her live a more fulfilling life.

Michaela is now a thriving behavioral therapist specializing in the after affects of near-death experiences.

Michaela’s story was featured on the acclaimed A&E tv show, “I Survived: Beyond and Back”.

___________________________________________________________________

In 2005, Dr. Rajiv Parti, an anesthesiologist, encountered the first of a series of life-threatening health challenges: a cancer diagnosis followed by four operations. Afterwards he developed addiction to the pain medications he once prescribed for others and severe depression from pain and the pills he became addicted to.

Dr. Parti had to endure seven surgeries for the cancer and ensuing complications. During his 7th surgery, dying from sepsis with a 105 degree fever, Dr. Parti left his body to hang above the operating room, his consciousness fully intact. He was then suddenly tossed into a horrific darkness, a living hell, where he experienced a bewildering life review. This was followed by a visitation from his dead, abusive father who imparted his son with profound guidance and eternal truths that would change everything in his life. This stunning experience revealed to Dr. Parti his true purpose in this lifetime – to help others forgive, love and heal. His soul contract, his dharma, became that of a spiritual healer of the soul, especially the pain and suffering that comes from diseases such as addiction and depression.

Dr. Parti now helps others overcome their own personal suffering. Gone are the days of Dr. Parti putting people to sleep; his mission now is to wake them up.

Today, the insights gained from his NDE has propelled Dr. Parti to several write books, speak around the world and offer compelling, transformative workshops on spiritual wellness. Dr. Parti contends that no one has to endure an NDE to heal from suffering. Dr. Parti teaches others that transformative healing is available right now if we choose to forgive ourselves and others, while practicing self-love and selfless acts of service.

Dec 13th speaker: Had NDE at birth, SIDS mother, helps dissolve fear of death

International Association for Near Death Studies (IANDS)
Orange County Chapter Support and Interest Group

Featured Speaker

Kienda Valbracht

 

Date:          Saturday, December 13, 2014

Time:         1:00-4:00 pm

Place:         Unity of Tustin, 14402 Prospect Ave., Tustin, CA

 

Kienda had an NDE (near-death-experience) at birth and the reason why she had many STEs (spiritually transforming experiences) in her early childhood years. In her late teens, to more deeply understand her own experiences, she began exploring the world’s religions, cults, and mystery.

Kienda is also a SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome) mother. She bore the shock and sorrow of her infant son’s death. Her continued relationship with her son, Christian Alexander, has contributed to her book, Lucid Death: Conscious Journeys Beyond the Threshold.

She says most people have no idea what happens after death, and so live in fear of the unknown.  Everyone needs a clear, comprehensible understanding of death and the beyond, including doctors, nurses, caretakers and hospice workers, because all physical life begins at birth and ends universally in death. Through her research and experience, she offers information, insight, and hopefully, can help to dissolve the fear, leading to a richer, fuller life.  That experience includes: Reiki Master, Institute of Cultural Affairs Facilitation Training, Interdimensional Consciousness Training. Minister of Spiritual Healers and Earth Stewards (SHES), Multi-dimensional Cellular Healing, SIDS Grief Counselor, Hospice, Tai Chi Chuan, Firewalking, Omega, Tarot, Subud, Sufi Healing Order, IANDS, Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT), Rites of Passage, Costume Design, Theater Production, Singing, Motherhood, Waldorf Education, and Anthroposophy.

Kienda has an IMA in Thanatology (the study of Death,) and is a Clinical Hypnotherapist.
