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.

Victor Zamora’s near-death experience story Saturday, August 11th, Tustin, CA

Saturday, August 11th, 2012

1:00pm to 4:00pm

Victor Zamora was 5 years old when he developed a very high fever. He died.  He remembers being in a beautiful place that he recognized as ‘home’ and tried to understand why he had left it to begin with because this wasreally where he lived.  Victor then returned to his body.  He grew up, and went on to become a special ed teacher.  But only 3 years ago, he had a ski accident.  And he died.  Again.

Victor will share this very personal experience of what happened during both near-death experiences, and how it has affected his life even today.

• Bring a sweater or jacket to the meeting, the room may be too cold
for some people. 

• Email your contact info to robin@robinbarr.com if you’d like
notification for last minute meeting changes.


  • We meet the 2nd Saturday of each month, from 1pm-4pm at Unity Church of Tustin.
  • Each meeting contains a break half-way through, and afterwards, questions and answers, and discussion. There is no pressure to participate in a discussion.
  • Not everyone who attends has had a near-death or spiritually transformative experience. Everyone has their own reason why this group is of interest, and all are welcome.
  • We encourage a donation of $10 per person for our expenses, but no one is turned away.


Unity Church of Tustin, 14402 Prospect Ave., Tustin, CA 
From the North:
Take the 5 Freeway South to the 55 Freeway North. Exit at 4th Street/Irvine Blvd. Turn right. Turn left at Prospect Avenue. Church entrance is about 1/2 mile on right.

From the South:
Take the 5 Freeway North to the 55 Freeway North. Exit at 4th Street/Irvine Blvd. Turn right. Turn left at Prospect Avenue. Church entrance is about 1/2 mile on right.

Drive to the back of the church, turn left, and park. You will see classrooms.  Enter Room 5 (the 2nd door you come to).
It’s an enjoyable extension of the meeting for more conversation, and getting to know people better with similar interests.  Often, the monthly speaker is able to join us so it’s another opportunity to ask questions or share information. We meet at close-by Mimi’s Cafe. 17231 17th St., Tustin, (714) 544-5522.  Directions:  Leaving the church parking lot, turn right on Prospect.  At 17th Street, turn Left.  Get in right hand lane.  A few blocks down, justbefore the 55 freeway, you’ll see Mimi’s on the right.  This is a no-host meal.

We meet to talk about and share near-death experiences, questions about death and dying, and the latest information from NDE research.  IANDS groups such as ours can be found in communities around the world.

Have you had a near-death or transformative spiritual experience you would be willing to share at a future meeting?
Please send an email to robin@robinbarr.com, or call Robin at (949) 855-1102.

Our September speaker will be Kat Sanders, recently featured on Biography Channel’s “I Survived: Beyond and Back”, who will share about her near-death experience when she died from a brain aneurism.  Mark your calendars for Saturday, September 8, 2012, 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm.
