NDE survivor of scuba diving accident will speak at April 12th meeting

Image

On September 29, 1984, Darlene Jaman survived a freak scuba diving accident off the coast of California. She experienced a core NDE (Near Death Experience) enveloped by the white light and an imbuing Love. This resulted in her spiritual reawakening and her birth of creative sight.

Darlene’s journey took her on a path of discovery to spend two and half years in Scotland at Findhorn Spiritual Community. Coming back to Los Angeles, she dedicated herself to help terminally ill patients who fear death.

For over a decade, Darlene facilitated and counseled the West Los Angeles friends of IANDS support group.

Darlene was raised in Los Angeles, and through the years, received extensive training in prestigious institutes of art, fashion design, and gourmet cooking.  After her NDE, painting became the way to quiet her mind, a transcendental gateway to another universe far beyond the physical limitations of the canvas. She is able to draw from gifts of sight which transcend beyond her thoughts and feelings giving over to the flow of painting, never knowing what will come onto the canvas.

Darlene will bring a couple of her pieces to the meeting which depict elements of her NDE,  also seen in her sketch below which she’ll explain during her talk.

Roger Ebert: his astounding realization prior to passing

ImageRich Martini is a writer, filmmaker, past speaker at OC IANDS about his research into life between lives documented in his book and documentary,  Flipside: Journey to the Afterlife.  Today, Rich posted the following fascinating account on Facebook (and blog) about Roger Ebert, Ebert’s wife Chaz, and what happened prior to his Ebert’s passing.  Enjoy.

Here’s a pretty dramatic “Flipside” moment, and I will endeavor to interview Chaz Ebert about it for the next book. I knew Roger Ebert, my brother Jeff worked with him at the U of I on the school paper, and Roger had given me a brutal “thumbs way down” review of my film “Limit Up” which literally killed it while it was in the theaters. I thought he’d appreciate the story about a guardian angel who helps a woman become the first female soybean trader at the Chicago Board of Trade and Ray Charles played her boss, God; I had no idea he was an atheist when I insisted to the studio that they get Roger a copy of the film for his review. One of the many errors I’ve made in my film career. (No really, it’s a fun movie; Danitra Vance, Ray Charles, Brad Hall, Nancy Allen – just hard to find.)

However, he was always friendly when I saw him at Cannes or other fests. I met his wife Chaz a few years back as well – a lovely couple. So when he was pronounced dead and then revived some years ago, he wrote how Chaz reported she heard him saying “I’m still here.” She insisted the Doctors revive him – and they did. He went on to live another four or five years with her. It didn’t change Roger’s opinion of an “afterlife” as he wrote a column about what happened – how he wasn’t conscious of calling out to her, but she was. I noted how funny it was that the proof there is “consciousness after life” actually happened to him – and to the person he loved the most on the planet – but he was blind to it. And six days ago, this appeared in Esquire, Chaz’s recollection of his final days. He was experiencing what so many have experienced – some in near death experiences – and some while under deep hypnosis as pioneered by Michael Newton and outlined in my first book “Flipside.”

Take a moment to read this description of Roger’s last moments on the planet. “The one thing people might be surprised about, Roger said that he didn’t know if he could believe in God. He had his doubts. But toward the end, something really interesting happened. That week before Roger passed away, I would see him and he would talk about having visited this other place. I thought he was hallucinating. I thought they were giving him too much medication. But the day before he passed away, he wrote me a note: “This is all an elaborate hoax.” I asked him, “What’s a hoax?” And he was talking about this world, this place. He said it was all an illusion. I thought he was just confused. But he was not confused. He wasn’t visiting heaven, not the way we think of heaven. He described it as a vastness that you can’t even imagine. It was a place where the past, present, and future were happening all at once. (http://www.esquire.com/blogs/news/roger-ebert-final-moments)

Funny how he reviewed his glimpse of the nature of reality; “It’s all a hoax.” He could have said “It’s all a movie” or “It’s all a theatrical piece” which would have been a bit more accurate (according to the research). “Hoax” implies there’s someone behind the curtain pulling the strings, and pulling something over on people. “Illusion” is accurate, but again, so is film; funny he didn’t make that connection. But when you examine the “Flipside” you find that there’s no one but you pulling the strings – albeit with help from spirit guides and other resources – but we experience events and problems in our paths because we put them there, to examine them, to learn from them – to learn compassion for others. We are directing the hoax, so to speak, and when we experience the vastness, the “stepping outside of time” that one can experience during a near death experience or under deep hypnosis, we see the past, present and future as other events to experience. And we experience the vastness, as Eben Alexander did in “Proof of Heaven” as a “glittering darkness” where we are all connected at the same moment. But don’t take my word for it; take Roger’s. Two thumbs way up.

Past Life and Life Between Lives Group Hypnosis June 8, 2013, Tustin

Saturday, June 8, 2013

1:00pm to 4:00pm

Orange County IANDS

Presents

Scott Fitzgerald De Tamble, C. Ht.,
Clinical Therapist 

Image

Scott is a spiritual hypnotherapist, featured in the documentary “Flipside: Journey Through the Afterlife” by Richard Martini, which you can view at no charge by clicking on the link. Runs 1.5 hours.

On June 8th, Scott will give a talk about ‘life before lives’, spirituality, and hypnosis followed by leading the audience through a hypnotic process. It will consist of a brief past life regression leading to the spiritual state between.

Life Between Lives is a hypnosis technique that connects you to your soul awareness. Guided into the spiritual state between lifetimes, you can communicate with your own personal spirit guide, greet your beloved soulmates, and consult advanced spiritual masters known as Elders. You have opportunities for learning, healing, and tracing the threads of your own soul history. Most importantly, you can better understand your path and purpose in your current lifetime.

This group hypnosis will run one hour, an abbreviated experience from what one would have during a private session with Scott which can run four or so hours.  Afterwards, those who would like to can share and talk about their experiences, and ask questions.

Scott was trained by Michael Newton, PhD., author of the classic book “Journey of Souls”, which chronicles his discovery and development of the LBL process. In a career spanning some 30 years, Dr. Newton found a remarkable consistency in his clients’ experiences, regardless of religious or philosophical beliefs.

Does God Control Our Lives?

I recently read a near-death experience book that portrayed the author’s life as a series of events directed and controlled by God–a traditional religious belief. That got me thinking about how seeing the same events from a different perspective can make a world of difference. It can literally turn a victim into a powerful spiritual force.

Many of us believe that God micromanages our daily lives. God decides what good events we will experience and punishes us for transgressions or omissions with bad events. This viewpoint is chock full of beliefs that we are cut off from our Creator, isolated, controlled by a being outside ourselves, and powerless to change our lives because they are dictated by someone else. In essence, we are victims of God’s whim. While in the afterlife, I learned that such beliefs are the result of human fear and superstition. And they can be corrected through enlightenment.

The “knowings” I received while living in the afterlife taught me a new model of our relationship with our Creator. I was shown that Source is an all-loving, and not controlling, immense intelligent energy field with emotions, imagination, and life of its own. Source has an innate personality or set of character traits that are immutable and constitute its “core” consciousness. In addition, Source has created within its own mind all of the personalities/characters that we call “souls.” We are those souls within Source’s mind; we are parts of Source. And we have been given complete free will to pick and choose the events of the physical lives of the creatures we inhabit. We either allow the host body to lead its animal life with us just going along for the ride, or, we manifest into physical reality what we truly and deeply believe about human life and ourselves within it.

So, because we are parts of Source’s mind, and we have the ability to control the actions and lives of the human hosts we inhabit (whether we exercise it or not), Source in a very limited sense does control human lives through us. The difference between this model of life, and the religious model, is who has the power. In the religious model, God is all powerful and we are powerless. The religious model assumes that the core consciousness of Source directs and controls everything in the physical world. In the model I was given in the afterlife, we ARE parts of God and are therefore powerful spiritual forces ourselves. We direct and control our own lives as Source.

Thank you for being open to the messages I have returned from the afterlife to share.

Saturday, July 14, 2012

1:00pm to 4:00pm
Guest Speakers:
Brad and Kasey Wallis

In 2007, Brad Wallis was involved in a major car accident, but that’s not when he died.  That happened one year later while he was still recovering from his injuries when he accidentally overdosed on one of his medications.

Please join us to hear Brad’s experience, what he learned when out of his body, and the agreement he made for returning. Kasey, now Brad’s wife, came into his life after his NDE to help him teach what is on the other side, utilizing her gift of channeling.

If you plan to attend, and would like us to try and notify you if there is a last minute change the day of the meeting (i.e. meeting cancellation), email your home and cell phone numbers, and email address to robin@robinbarr.com as soon as possible.  Thankfully, this rarely occurs.
