The Three Funerals
The sequential guidance that ensued when questioning the purpose of my afterlife investigation.
Whenever people first learn that I’ve been investigating the afterlife for 25 years, their eyes tend to glaze over like a frosted doughnut. Brain cells that have laid dormant for years begin to awaken. Neurons start to fire and sizzle. This is all in reaction to news of a vocation that appears as incomprehensible to what we understand as normal.
“You’ve been doing what for 25 years?”
I get it. It’s weird.
People tend to ask one of three questions when learning what I do. How did you come to choose this career? How does one make a living investigating the afterlife? And what purpose does it serve?
These are all good questions. I answered the “how it happened” question in my recent article about Why I Went from Private Investigator to Afterlife Investigator. The second question on making a living from it was always a challenge. Basically, I never got paid to investigate the afterlife, but people were happy to support me in teaching what I’d learned in my investigation (e.g. my books and this newsletter). However, it was that last question about purpose that became elusive even to me, at least until the sixth year into my investigation.
