Barbara Bartolome,

Founder of Santa Barbara IANDS

barbara-bartolome

Barbara had her first NDE as an 18-month-old, and the next in 1987 when she went into cardiac arrest during a pre-surgery medical procedure. After being successfully resuscitated, she alarmed the medical staff by accurately recounting their individual comments and actions, and avoided discussing her experience with her.

Through the years, she had astounding moments of  ‘intuition’ if you want to call it that, but it was communication, to put it lightly.  She wasn’t exactly thinking of it as ‘God’, but a higher being who warned her of imminent things about to happen and how to protect herself.  There was another incident where she was given career advice in the oddest of ways, and all that ensued. Unbelievable!

She rarely spoke of her NDE’s for 20 yrs until she came across the Near-Death Experience Research Foundation (www.nerf.org) and the IANDS organization (www.iands.org), and soon after, founded IANDS Santa Barbara in August 2011.

Barbara has been interviewed on NBC Today Show on the segment entitled  “Do you believe? Near-death experiences may reveal glimpses of the afterlife”. http://on.today.com/2i2y7sf

Barbara  is strongly committed to the IANDS organization’s purpose in promoting responsible, multi-disciplinary exploration of near-death and similar experiences, examining their effects on people’s lives, and their implications for the change to our beliefs about life, death, and human purpose.

 

Last December, Barbara was interviewed on NBC Today Show on the segment entitled  “Do you believe? Near-death experiences may reveal glimpses of afterlife”. http://on.today.com/2i2y7sf

She will go into much more detail of her NDE’s and resulting experiences afterward during her talk.  She just told me some of those accounts and my mouth is still hanging open!  You’ll find her an excellent NDE educator,  speaker, and a dear woman.

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.

When a Child Passes On. Twelve Messages for Their Loved Ones

From the website, http://www.soulproof.com

                            When a Child Passes On . . . 12 Messages for Their Loved Ones

I am very sorry for the passing of your loved one and all the pain and sadness that can go with it. That is one of, if not the biggest, changes a person can go through. When a child transitions, you can grieve horribly for the rest of your life and no one will judge you for it. But there’s another way. Some bereaved parents have been able to upgrade their emotions of sadness, anger, and pain toward higher energy ones such as gratitude for their time together, enthusiasm about seeing each other again, and loving service to others. Here are twelve keys to moving in that direction . . .

1. Remember that no one really dies. Yes, the physical body died. However, that outer shell is much less than 1% of who and what he actually is. The rest—all the love, energy, consciousness, intelligence, spirit, light—continues on into the next phase of forever. Death is an optical illusion because of our limited brain and sense organs. The Soul Proof book and documentary film shares the clinical, scientific, and empirical evidence that we each are timeless beings of energy/spirit/ consciousness. You now have more urgency to learn about the other 99.9% of who you and your child really are. In doing so, you’ll become a brighter light in the world.

2. Know that you will see each other again. 75% of bereaved family members have after-death contacts (ADCs) involving the usual or subtler senses. These can occur while awake or dreaming and have been proven to be more than imagination or wishful thinking. Stay alert for unexpected encounters, unexplainable events, lucid dreams, or alterations in electrical device functioning. And, you will definitely see each other again when you pass on to the next phase of forever and have a wonderful reunion. To remember this great news, avoid using phrases such as “death” or “I lost my child” and upgrade them to “my child transitioned/graduated/changed worlds.”

3. Realize your child was likely an evolved or “old” soul. Souls, whether housed in five or ninety-five year-old bodies, change worlds when they have completed their earthly missions. Your child didn’t have major lessons to learn, thus her brief visit to planet earth. Some children leave clues that their time on earth is short: they are more loving and compassionate than usual or have a sense of urgency to experience all they can while they can.

4. Create meaning for your departed loved ones life. One way to reenter the flow of life is to honor your child’s life in some way. Some parents help the needy in their child’s name while others start foundations or scholar-ships. Some help start a Helping Parents Heal group while others work to prevent needless injuries from drunk drivers, preventable accidents, or medical treatment abuses. The Ask Your Soul CD uses deep relaxation and can help you identify how to create more meaning to her passing and help you heal.

5. Understand that God didn’t take your child away. Avoid getting caught up in excess anger toward inaccurate religious teachings and personified images of God. We each are part of Source Energy right now. Archaic notions of a huge bearded guy in the sky who decides when and how someone crosses over are never useful, especially when a child is involved.

6. Be aware that your child’s passing helps you and others grow and learn. The old saying “That which does not kill me makes me stronger” is absolutely true. Just imagine how wise and compassionate you can become after struggling with such pain. The physical death of a child—much like near-death experiences, severe accidents, being in war, etc.—can awaken you to the vastness of life that usually escapes the five senses. You will be more motivated to find good answers to life’s toughest questions such as those in The Eleven Questions: Everything You Ever Wanted To Know About Life, Death, and Afterlife. Our and your answers can develop your spiritual muscles and help you remember who you really are and why you’re here.

7. Take optimal care of yourself. The physical death of a child is a huge stressor to the body and mind, especially if you are already out of balance due to post-pregnancy nutritional deficiencies or other causes. As discussed in Radiant Wellness, take time for rest, exercise, healthy diet, and stress reducing centering practices such as meditation, prayer, yoga, time in nature, gardening, playing with pets, etc. The Transformational Breath Work CD is a powerful way to release accumulated stress and old wounds.

8. Realize that death by any means is a ticket back Home. Passing on—whether by illness, accident, murder, or suicide—is a way to move on from this earth-experience. The soul/essence usually decides when physical death is timely, even during some suicides. Impulsive actions, intractable physical or mental pain, drug or alcohol abuse, nutritional imbalances and other factors can also cause a person to end his earth-experience. In any case, your loved one didn’t want to hurt or leave you. If strife preceded his passing, that was a sign of his pain and imbalance. Treasure your happy times together in the past and look forward to new ones in the future.

9. Consider the possibility that you and your child agreed, on a soul level, to participate in this scenario. Your infinite self likely entered into a soul contract to be part of this painful slice of life. Why? The short answer: to assist the plan of your child’s soul so you both could grow and serve others. This earth-experience is very much like a play or movie. Your child needed someone to play the role of parent, grandparent, sibling, etc. and you agreed. Your life may seem like a senseless nightmare right now, but I guarantee that someday—and you don’t have to wait until you die—you will see the big picture and understand the cosmic view of all this.

10. Assemble a holistic care team. Avoid prescription drugs whenever possible because of negative side-effects and potential for addiction. Find an integrative medical doctor who understands the power of natural healing and uses medications only when absolutely necessary. Consider one or more of the following to tune-up your body-mind: counseling, specific chiropractic, acupuncture, massage, and homeopathy. Energy balancing techniques and mediums may also be excellent resources. I recommendNutrition Response Testing to evaluate key organs—especially the brain and endocrine glands— and how to strengthen those with a real food diet and whole food Standard Process Visit www.unsinc.info to find the nearest practitioner.

11. Know that your child wants you to be happy now. Your child’s soul is very near and wants you to enjoy life again. She can feel your emotions and is urging you to awaken to the great news that life and love are eternal. Don’t blame yourself about anything you did or didn’t do or say since many details had to align for the timing and way your loved one transitioned. Enjoy your life fully on earth while you can. That will honor your child’s gifts and life and allow her to best experience the next page of life’s never-ending saga.

12. Benefit from loving support and wise information. This is the time to ask for help and lean on others. Consider joining a church or organization that offers spiritual wisdom, loving fellowship, and opportunities for service to others. Helping Parents Heal provides support, networking, an enlightened perspective, and personal transformation strategies. It discusses the afterlife evidence and all the hope and inspiration that accompany it. I’ve posted a series of articles that can help you survive and even thrive through this and other life challenges. They are posted on the home page of my website www.soulproof.com under Foundational Articles for Healing and Transforming.

So, here you are in a new moment and an important fork in your life’s road. Will you look for the silver linings to this cloud and bless yourself and others? Only you can choose how you will react to this difficult time. The old saying, “Two men looked through prison bars. One saw mud, the other stars,” reminds you that you can choose your perspective. I hope this information helps you to heal and transform yourself, others, and our world for the better. Let me know how I can help.

Watch Near Death Experience Documentary: Conversations with God

near-death-experienceThis older, one-hour documentary hosted by Joseph Campanella features people who have had near-death experiences (NDE) who share their fascinating personal accounts. Especially intriguing information is offered by Dannion Brinkley (author of Saved by the Light), who had his first near-death experience after being struck by lightning, was resuscitated, and continued to live with multiple medical problems, yet with a positive attitude. He then had a second NDE years later while in the hospital, and again returned to life. Medical experts and well-known authors who have specialized in the subject provide convincing factual evidence that these experiences are real events that occur as part of the transition from life to death, not brain chemical-induced hallucinations or delusions caused by shock. Many individuals (including some very small children) remember similar things, such as being in the presence of a loving being with whom they could wordlessly communicate and together reviewed their lives. A striking aspect of these experiences is that most of the people who have had them seem to no longer have a fear of death.

Also featured are Grace Bubulka, Dianne Morrissey, Dr. Raymond Moody, Dr. Melvin Morse, Dr. Larry Dossey, and Paul Perry.  

 

Dr. Rajiv Parti is in the house, March 14th – Don’t miss this one!

___________________________________________________________________

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.

Christian Minister’s NDE: Saved from Horrifying Darkness, Followed by Light, Healing Miracles

Mickey Robinson, born a Roman Catholic, now a Christian minister and author of Falling Into Heaven, recounts his 1968 near-death experience when the plane he was in exploded.  He was only 19 years old.  As the facilitator of Orange County IANDS and in my own personal interest and research into near-death experiences, he reports something I have not yet heard from other experiencers.  At the moment he revived and came back into his body, only momentarily he heard himself speaking a beautiful language, one he had never heard before.

Mickey has a pleasing low-key, matter-of-fact way style of communication in which he tells his story to Sid Roth, a messianic Jew and host of the Sid Roth-It’s Supernatural show.

A further search on Youtube will produce many interviews of Mickey.  I came across one in which the host invites him to say a prayer for all the listeners.  It may have a different effect for you, but the prayer had a calming peaceful effect on me which has lasted throughout the day.  I’m not a Christian so as I heard the references to Jesus Christ, I just replaced them with words which reflect my personal beliefs, ‘God’, ‘My Creator’, ‘Higher Power.’  The prayer in the following video starts at the 4 minute mark.
