On Saturday, March 9, 2013 from 1:00pm to 4:00pm, Orange County IANDS will present Deb Foster who will share her story of the day she gave birth to a healthy baby girl, but a few hours later, something went wrong. Deb died. She’ll share her detailed story of going to “a different place” where she saw heaven.
Her story has been featured in newspapers, Guidepost, and Barbara Walters’ special Heaven, Where Do We Go, How Do We Get There?
She’ll be answering everyone’s questions afterwards. Bring a friend, especially any animal lovers who wonder where their pets go after they leave this world.
Tom Michaelsen and other volunteers from the Sukyo Mahikari Center for Spiritual Development will be on hand to give ‘light’ to those interested at no charge. The light is known to revitalize the spirit, mind, and body, and will be offered from 11:45 am and ending sharply at 1:00 pm. If you’d like to receive ‘light’, please email Tom at firstname.lastname@example.org to ‘rsvp’ so enough volunteers will be available. The earlier you arrive, the better.
Rich Martini, filmmaker of the documentary Flipside: A Journey to the Afterlife, and our speaker from December 8th, has sent his holiday greetings along with links to his talk at Virginia Beach Friends of IANDS on 9/1/12 and his 30 minute talk at Fellowship of the Inner Light on 9/2/12. And if that’s not enough, he’s included a Christmas card from his family!
Virginia Beach talk:
Fellowship of the Inner Light
In 1974, Anne Perrah was given the gift of an NDE. An incredible feeling of well-being and unconditional love came over her so powerful that, to this day, she has never feared death. She had never heard of a “near-death experience” at that time and had no one to talk to about her experience for many years. Yet, her own spiritual journey changed dramatically as a result of her NDE. When her stepmother died, Anne’s own lack of fear about death allowed for her to help her stepmother to pass over more peacefully. Eleven years later, tragedy struck when Anne’s 22-year old daughter died in a fire. Anne was able to use what she learned from her own NDE to help her get through that spiritually challenging time. She will share her story with us in greater detail and answer questions afterwards.
He and I just connected on Facebook. He’ll be doing a book tour in the first half of next year, and will try to make it to one of our monthly meetings. Will keep you posted.
I highly recommend listening to this interview from September 11, 2012 with George Noory, radio host of CoasttoCoastAM. It had a profound effect on my life, where I now just roll with the day-to-day life events without the struggle. Journalist and filmmaker Rich Martini discusses his incredible journey finding evidence for the afterlife, life between lives, and “soul groups”; how when we’re between lives, we plan the circumstances of our next life, when the soul enters the body – and there’s a little surprise about that – and much, much more. It’s a 3 hour interview, but I didn’t want it to end!
He also touched on his extensive research into the fate of Amelia Earhart, for which he also made a documentary detailing what actually happened to her. This, too, is a fascinating story.
Grab a cup of coffee or tea, get comfortable, here’s the interview. There’s an unrelated interview that precedes it with Stewart Rhodes, founder of the Oath Keepers, where he talks about changes that have taken place in post 9-11 America. He contends the 9-11 attacks were used as an excuse to dismantle the Bill of Rights. If you wish to skip that, scroll forward to 38 minutes 30 seconds where the Martini interview begins.
Here’s the link to Rich Martini’s site where you can find his book, Flipside: A Tourist’s Guide on How To Navigate the Afterlife, where you can watch his documentary, Flipside, online for only $5. There’s also a link to where you can watch his 70 minute documentary on Amelia Earhart, Earhart’s Electra, for free if you’re in the U.S. There’s a lot more of interest on the site as well.
Guest Speaker, Kat Sanders
On April 22, 2010, Kat Sanders was getting ready to go out for the evening with her husband, Steve. Without warning, she felt excruciating pain, as if a knife had been plunged into her head. The last words she spoke as she slid to the floor were “My head hurts very bad, I’m scared.” It was a brain aneurism.
Kat will share her story of what happened leading up to her death, the details of her vivid near-death experience, and the influence it had on her life going forward.
Kat was recently featured on Biography Channel’s I Survived: Beyond and Back, and is the author of “Unstoppable Life”.
