AREI Is Helping Make a Difference for Humankind

December 8th, 2017|Comments Off on AREI Is Helping Make a Difference for Humankind

“He’s at peace now.”  “She’s in a better place.”  “He’s in heaven with God.”  “She’ll always be with you in your heart.”  Do such common condolences offer any real comfort or peace of mind to someone grieving the loss of a child?  It seems unlikely. At most, they suggest a very static and monotonous afterlife, one in which we might easily imagine our recently departed loved one to be suffering from an acute case of boredom.

Modern revelations coming to us through psychical research and afterlife studies indicate that a much more dynamic and active afterlife awaits us.  It is that environment that the Afterlife Research and Education Institute, Inc. (AREI) aims to bring to the attention of the public. “Our goal is to have an impact on people’s lives,” says R. Craig Hogan, Ph.D., co-founder and president of the organization.  “We are not interested in philosophy or pure research except as it contributes to humankind’s understanding of the afterlife, development of relationships with people on the next plane of life, and growth of the individual.”

The Institute’s website (http://afterlifeinstitute.org/) further explains that the organization is dedicated to supporting the research, development, education, and practice on the earth plane that will enable teams working in other realms of existence to guide us into discovering and using the methods of communication they are developing.

Some 600 people attended the Institute’s second annual conference in Scottsdale, Arizona during September.  The speakers included professors, researchers, mediums, lawyers, ministers, editors, a psychotherapist, a spiritualist, and a nationwide radio host.

The 2018 conference is scheduled for September 14-16 at the Doubletree Resort Scottsdale with registration already underway at its website (http://afterlifesymposium.org).

Hogan, a former professor of business communications at three universities, curriculum and training administrator at two universities and a medical school, and director of his own business writing school, is the author of Your Eternal Self, which presents the scientific evidence that mind is not confined to the brain and that the afterlife is a reality. He is the co-author of Induced After-Death Communication: A New Therapy for Healing Grief and Trauma with Allan Botkin, Psy.D. and Guided Afterlife Connections: They come to Change Lives (later published as Repair & Reattachment Grief Therapy) with Rochelle Wright.

“We have been called to help humankind evolve into being compassionate, loving, other-centered people who know we are eternal beings having a physical experience, have no fear of the transition called death, communicate easily with people living on the next plane of life, and care deeply for other human beings, animals, and nature,” Hogan responds when asked about his interest in afterlife research and education.

Hogan, along with Roberta Grimes, a business attorney practicing in Texas and Massachusetts, Victor Zammit, LL.D., Ph.D., a retired Australian lawyer and judge, Wendy Zammit, M.A., a retired educator, and Susanne Wilson, M.A., a former corporate executive and university administrator, founded AREI in 2015.

“Death is the best time of your life!” Grimes writes in The Fun of Dying, one of 12 books she has authored. “Wouldn’t it be good if more people knew that?”  She goes on to summarize the credible reports that have come to us through mediums, near-death experiencers,  people on their deathbeds who have reported veridical visions, and others who experienced various paranormal phenomena.  She discusses how it feels to die, entering the tunnel into the light, entering the afterlife, having a life review, and awakening on the Other Side. Of course, it is not necessarily a pleasant experience if one is not prepared for it and Grimes discusses the risk of becoming earthbound.

Grimes points out how modern revelation is easily reconciled with biblical teachings if one has an open mind and is not handicapped by the need to accept everything literally.  “Having been a devout Christian all my life, I am amazed to see how much better my new certainty is than the deepest faith, and knowing so much about the afterlife trumps all my old belief in a generic heaven,” she adds.

The Zammits produce a very popular weekly website focusing on the afterlife (http://victorzammit.com) and have authored A Lawyer Presents the Evidence for the Afterlife on the subject. Susanne Wilson is now a practicing medium and author of the 2017 book, Soul Smart: What The Dead Teach Us About Spirit Communication.

“Being active members of AREI is both exciting and humbling. We are instruments of a Greater Force helping humanity evolve into the next stage in its development,” Hogan said. “What more fulfilling life activity could any human being hope to be involved in?

 

AREI Publishes Hans Otto König’s Books in English and German

November 25th, 2017|Comments Off on AREI Publishes Hans Otto König’s Books in English and German

AREI has translated and published Hans Otto König’s Listen! New Discoveries about the Afterlife: Scientific Research on Contact with the Invisible. Experiences of Instrumental TransCommunication (ITC) (Hoere zu! Akustische Vermittlungen aus anderen Seins-Ebenen: Die Geschichte einer wissenschaftlichen Forschung uber die geistige Natur des Menschen (German Edition). The books are now available on Amazon.com.

Evelyn Meuren, AREI director of translations in Europe, translated the book from French. Craig Hogan edited the English version and AREI published the resulting books.

Dedicated Spirit Beings in other realms have resolved to help humankind learn to communicate with their worlds using electronic devices previously unavailable to humankind. The Spirit Beings have chosen individuals on the Earth plane to team with them in this important work. The most successful pioneer on the earth plane is Hans Otto König, who has devoted 45 years of his life to technical re-search in his laboratory, continually developing new, more advanced devices to communicate with Spirit Beings. The findings from his research will be of great interest to the scientific world in general and basic researchers in particular, now and in the years to come.

König detected the voices of Spirit Beings seeking to develop enhanced communication with humankind on the earth plane for the first time in 1974. Over the next 45 years, he passionately studied the acoustic phenomena producing the voices, extending the reach of the technical apparatuses with which he worked far beyond what was understood to be possible; he was able to improve the signal strength and communicate with the Spirit Beings. They were anxious to share knowledge, so they participated in improving the technical apparatuses König was developing. Today, he regularly makes contact with the Spirit Beings over the connections called “contact bridges” and is sharing what he has learned with other researchers and humankind.

He has learned from his communications that the entities living in the other realms are at higher levels of being: the 5th through 7th levels. These Spirit Beings have been in contact with König throughout his research.

They continue to transmit messages to us that they want humankind to hear:

  • We are eternal beings. There is no death as an end to the individual spirit. “Nobody ceases to exist; every life is forever,” they say.
  • The universe must be penetrated and directed by the forces of the Spirit. That is why man is necessary in the Divine’s eternal plan.
  • The Spirit Beings have a great concern for what is happening on the Earth plane. They send the power of Love to help us.
  • They have told König that the time is ripe for an expansion of consciousness.
  • The connections will become stronger. The contact bridge will grow in power and capability.
  • Many people who lived on the Earth plane want to connect with us now, especially loved ones.
  • They assert that extraterrestrial life, other life forms, will contact us.
  • Good connections require inner preparation and a spiritual focus. Not everyone can make good contacts with us by special, more advanced devices. Stature and spiritual maturity are the bases.
  • “All is one.” We are connected to them in love. We are all a unity of life, even animals and plants. The meaning and value of life are based in love and the union with all that is alive.
  • The Spirit Beings know our thoughts. They report that they are “watching” us.
  • If we want to change the World, they say we as individuals must change our own worlds, within each of us. They assert that spirit overcomes matter.

These profound insights have been given to König by the Spirit Beings for the benefit of humankind. He is now anxious to make their teachings available so all people can benefit from them, fulfilling the Spirit Beings’ purpose in connecting with us on the Earth plane. This book contains the essence of these teachings.

Materializations in Red Light ~ The Felix Circle

November 24th, 2017|Comments Off on Materializations in Red Light ~ The Felix Circle

Medium Kai Muegge and the Felix Circle have been working toward the goal of having physical manifestations in red light and eventually white light for many years. Remarkably, they have succeeded in having materializations in red light.

This is the Felix Circle’s account. You can read the full account at this link: Felix Circle account


The November 2017 advanced séance was starting with a lot of spirit and philosophy for the twenty sitters, then the many materialized objects that were in the possession of those sitters were brought forward and in the most colorful light these were then ‘energized’ by my Spirit Team.

When I am entranced by the team, they use my bare hands. In them, they hold materialized stones of different color, which like explode there, so that the whole room submerges into that color and the sitters as well.

A lot of objects were again spiritually manufactured by the team, stones small and big, figurines, a lot of objects again were falling from eyes, ears, nose, mouth. Impressively, they usually in the midst of the control’s speech to the sitters in red light fill up the mouth massively, so that talking has to pause until everything is extruded…

Now it was time and the spirit control announced that the sitters would witness tonite a materialization of beforehand unreached completion. Everybody was amazed!

And only a few seconds afterwards Julia was already hearing the signal for the red light.
What was then revealed to the sitters was an unbelievably well visible spirit entity! My communicator Hans said to the sitters that they were privileged tonight to encounter one of ‘the most renowned humanoid doorkeepers both from the heydays of the movement and from modern times also!’

Sonia Rinaldi Gets Messages from Nicola Tesla

November 24th, 2017|Comments Off on Sonia Rinaldi Gets Messages from Nicola Tesla

The remarkable pioneer research in ITC, Sonia Rinaldi, has been receiving consistent messages from a facility set up in another realm to convey messages to the earth plane, called the Brazilian Station. Most recently, she has received messages from Nicola Tesla, who is a prominent researcher and engineer at the Station. In July 2017, Sonia began receiving the latest messages Tesla, in English. Until then, she had been received messages from him only in the Brazilian language, Portuguese. Apparently, he worked out a way to link her South Portuguese speaking station to the North American English speaking station. Since then she has been getting very clear messages in English.

You can read about Sonia’s contact with Tesla and listen to the contacts at this link: http://ipati.org/tesla/
