The Mindful Body - Book Recommendation
Melissa and I have been reading this paradigm-shifting book, The Mindful Body, and found ourselves recommending it to our friends. It’s about the power that our thoughts and beliefs have on our body, our health, and our happiness.
Amazon’s description: Learn how adjusting your thoughts can change your health — from the “mother of mindfulness” and first female tenured professor of psychology at Harvard. When it comes to our health, we tend to live our lives as though our ailments — our stiff knees or frayed nerves or diminished eyesight — can change only in one direction: for the worse. Award-winning social psychologist Ellen J. Langer’s life’s work proves the fault in this negative outlook as well as the healing power of its alternative: mindfulness — the process of active noticing where we are not bound by past experience or conventional wisdom.
In The Mindful Body, Dr. Langer unpacks her assumption-busting findings and outlines her bold new theory of mind-body unity, along the way clearly demonstrating how our thoughts and perspectives have the potential to profoundly shape our well-being. Whether it is hotel chambermaids who lost weight when they simply came to see that their work constituted exercise, or patients whose wounds healed faster in rooms with accelerated clocks, she shows how influential our thoughts are to the state of our bodies. Her work has likewise proven that discouraging health news can have negative effects.

Near-Death Experiences - Article and Video
If you love learning about near-death experiences, you might enjoy this article that focuses on the changes that often occur in a person after experiencing an NDE.
In several of my articles, I talk about how investigating the afterlife changed me by making me a more loving and compassionate human being. This happens to people who experience near-death experiences too. My change was gradual, but people can change quite rapidly following an NDE, and it can be rather unsettling to family members and friends.
Scott Drummond’s NDE
Here’s a 19-minute video of Scott Drummond’s near-death experience. I chose this one for today because it’s possibly the most sincere and heartfelt testimonial that I’ve heard, which might account for why 22 million people have viewed it. While many NDEs have more details or events within them, I appreciate that Scott doesn’t interpret his experiences to line up with any spiritual beliefs. He just tells his story according to what he experienced — ”Just the facts, Ma’am.” Enjoy!
Channeling the Masters - Amazing Documentary
“Tuning In: Spirit Channelers in America”
Eleven years into my investigation of the afterlife (2008), a filmmaker sent me this fascinating documentary about six channelers in North America who “tune in” to the higher frequencies of intelligent sources existing outside space and time. This is the result of David Thomas’ passionate decade of research and filming.
The six channels in this documentary include Lee Carroll (channel for Kryon), John Cali (channel for Chief Joseph), Shawn Randall (channel for Torah), Darryl Anka (channel for Bashar), Geoffrey Hoppe (channel for Tobias), and Wendy Kennedy (channel for the Pleiadian Collective).
In the early years of my investigation, there were a lot of brilliant documentaries made and sent to me. I’ll share them with you one at a time. This film is 3 hours and 22 minutes, so it’s a commitment, but time you won’t regret taking if channeling interests you.
Pets in the Afterlife - Videos and Book Recommendation
Earlier this year, I wrote about pets in the afterlife. You might recall that I interviewed animal communicator Danielle MacKinnon about pets and the afterlife on Afterlife TV. She was one of my first interviews in 2011. Danielle has a new book out titled The Incredible Animal Afterlife. Since everything Danielle does is fantastic, and it was just released on April 28th, I thought I’d tell you about it.
Invite Your Deceased Pet to Visit You in a Dream
Here's an 8-minute video with Danielle about inviting a dream visitation from your pet. She offers a few simple steps to make that happen.
