Self-Guided Afterlife Connections Validations

AREI’s Self-Guided Afterlife Connections procedure is a training program that teaches people how to use self-hypnosis to have afterlife connections. The procedure is free, online at self-guided.spiritualunderstanding.org. The training results in 86% of participants’ learning to have their own afterlife connections.

The training has eight stages. Participants must go through the training stages in order. After each training stage, the participant fills out a journal describing what happened during the stage. Craig Hogan, developer of the training program, reads each journal and coaches the participant in how to learn the skill taught on the stage. Participants give AREI permission to let others read the journals with names and other details changed so the writer cannot be identified.

Some of the journals explain that the participant learned information during the Self-Guided Afterlife Connections session he or she could not have known, that was later validated to be true, demonstrating that they are having real connections with loved ones. You can read some of the validations in the journals that follow.

Jean told me that if I communicate with her mother again to tell them how much they all love and miss them. I passed that information on to Lauren and Tim. When doing so, Tim put a thought into my mind. It was a snowman with a long carrot nose and a scarf. It happened so fast, but the picture was very clear and distinct. I almost didn’t mention it to Jean and Linda because it just didn’t seem like it could mean anything. Now hang on to that hat tightly. These are actual text messages that follow. Pardon some of the grammar. Me to Linda: “I didn’t want to bother Jean at work. Tell her I told your mom and dad what she told me to tell them, and your dad put a thought in my mind. It was a snowman with a long carrot nose and a scarf. I don’t know if that means anything but there it is.” Back to work now. Linda to me: “OMG it does, Frank. OMG I’m blown away I gotta call her.” The next text is a picture. Linda to Me: A picture of a stuffed snowman hanging in a tree. Yes it had a long carrot nose and scarf. Linda to Me: “Jean and I went to cemetery yesterday, cleaned up stone hung snowman on tree said it was for dad. Yes, a very good validation.”

Then, I saw a young girl/teenager. She had familiar features. The name Brenda came to me and I realized it’s a friend of mine’s daughter. She died in a roll over crash where she was pinned and asphyxiated. The kids with her were allegedly responsible for her being abandoned at the wreck. The feelings I got from her had nothing to do with that wreck or the people around her then. She hovered with me, morphing a bit so I saw her in different stages, ages. I saw her exploring. I saw her as a student, studying. I don’t know that she did that on earth but she is now that she’s passed. I heard her say, I love mom. I miss mom. I asked in my mind, how can you miss her, you are always with her? It was more like a misunderstanding. I saw some food item, rolled. It looked like a lobster roll but with jalapenos. I was focused on it too much and it disappeared, I looked to the side and saw her as a little girl, rolling out dough, working on a red checked table cloth, working so hard. She was darling! Then, I realized, Oh, she misses doing this stuff with her mom. At least that’s what I got from it. I saw her enjoying the weather, the fall, the leaves, colors. I saw her and felt her loving the ocean and tide. I could feel her sort of drinking it in. She showed me some other things she was liking about where she was and her condition. I can’t recall what they were. The whole pleasant smell, taste and color might be because I was in the yard picking kumquats and eating them? But I think what it is, that stuff we enjoy is a way to connect? At least it can be for me. It’s a reminder of their presence.

IN A LATER E-MAIL TO AREI, THE PARTICIPANT WROTE THIS:

Well, how Dee doo? I wrote Lauren [mother of the little girl in the afterlife connection] and told her the first part of it and how confused I was with the roll ups that had jalapeño in them. I kept thinking, what on earth. So, I wrote Lauren unsure of how much to tell her. I can never remember who is a believer and who isn’t. Guess what? She writes back and says it makes sense to her. Yes, they made jalapeño roll ups. WHAT…. I’ve NEVER heard of such a thing. Look, if I ever thought I was making this stuff up, well, I completely believe now. Where the hell did jalapeño roll ups come from?

I did a session the other night, clearly saw a friend’s son, his music and some other things. I heard him playing a song. Later that day, I asked my friend about something her son had shown me and she confirmed that was something of significance. That made me smile. She told me about his YouTube he recorded before his passing. When I watched the online songs her son left on YouTube, one of his songs was the same song I heard in my afterlife connection!

Last night in an induction, I saw a woman with a scarf around her head. Well, it was more than a scarf. As I saw her in different angles, the word, Habib came to me. I asked who she is. I don’t think that was her name. I looked up the head covering and the word is hajib. That’s not a word I knew although I’ve intended to learn the words since I’ve been exposed to more and more Arabic and Muslim culture.

Things occurred while I was in a relaxed state as a result of your recording. The use of the recordings let me see faces very clearly and hear voices. One message I received came from my uncle, who passed in February 2012, a week before my father. He said something to me in a sentence that was half in Spanish and half in Italian. Since I speak both languages fluently and well, I would never mix the two, but that is something that he always did, so I knew that this was a message.

I could almost hear his voice when I responded in a way that I thought he might respond. This procedure was quite motivating because I felt like some of the time he was actually chiming in with me, and sometimes he would let me know somehow that the answer I came up with was not how he would respond, almost like, “Well, actually, it’s more like this . . .”

Then I walked through the glowing door and Brandon greeted me. He seemed eager to share what I had missed in his life. He led me to his small boat, took my hand and helped me climbed aboard. We went out on the lake, and he gave me a big smile. He stopped the boat in the middle of the lake. It was very quiet and peaceful. He then took out a fishing rod, put a worm on it and began fishing. The word "bluegill" came to mind, and I saw an image of a bluish-grey fish. He then showed me how to fish and had me try it. I told him I had done well fishing at 6th grade camp. After that, I saw Brandon cooking fish on a barbecue grill.

IN AN E-MAIL TO THE CENTER A DAY LATER, THE PARTICIPANT WROTE THIS:

After Session 6, I was thinking about the bluegill fish and Brandon grilling it. I know practically nothing about fishing, so I was wondering if bluegills even live in the lake near where he lived. I had also never heard of anyone eating bluegills and didn’t know if they could be grilled. I had actually always thought the most common fish to catch and eat was trout, so I was surprised bluegill even came to mind. I decided to do some checking to see if any of the information could be verified. It turns out that the lake by Brandon’s house does indeed have bluegill fish! I also read they are a very tasty fish, and they are usually pan-fried, but can also be grilled. This is all information I did not know before the session. This definitely provides proof that this information is not coming from me. How could I possibly create something I had no prior knowledge of?

(Added after the December 3 initial publication of this report)

I positioned myself on the couch with my head and legs propped up and began to guide myself through relaxation exercises. Partway through my counting and deep breathing, I saw an image of my Aunt Mary, who passed away about 7 years ago. I continued my counting while letting the images come. I then saw Aunt Mary again followed by gold bow earrings and a tri-colored gold rope bracelet with three strands twisted together. I then saw a slot machine with triple 7s. I had a sense that she wanted me to share the jewelry and slot machine images with my mom. Aunt Mary and my mom were very close, and my mom misses her a lot. Next I saw Aunt Mary at my cousin’s wedding (the last wedding she went to before she passed away). She was wearing the black dress covered with a glitter pattern that I let her borrow because she lost a lot of weight and didn’t have anything that fit. She was smiling, and I got the feeling she was trying to communicate to me that she loved wearing my dress and appreciated me loaning it to her. I remember all the compliments she had gotten and how when people asked her where she got the dress, she smiled proudly and said: It’s from Nordstrom.

IN AN E-MAIL TO THE CENTER A DAY LATER, THE PARTICIPANT WROTE THIS:

I told my mom about the images related to Aunt Mary. She confirmed that Aunt Mary did have a pair of bow earrings that she wore around Christmastime. [This session was five days before Christmas.] She wasn’t sure about the bracelet, but thought it sounded familiar. The slot machine I already knew about because my mom and her sisters liked to go to the casino together. My mom also remembered that Aunt Mary really loved wearing my dress to the wedding and said she felt like a celebrity in it.

In addition to talking with my mom, I also had an urge to turn on the radio this morning and immediately heard one of Brandon’s songs. Then when I left the house to pick up my sister, another one of his songs was playing. I only listened to the radio for 15 minutes today and heard 2 of his songs.

In Stage 5, which I did yesterday evening, you advised us to ask questions to which we did not know the answers and then to check them afterwards.

I did this. The first question that I asked was the whereabouts of something that I had moved to another place, several months ago. Because I thought that I may subconsciously know where it is, I also asked another question to which I had no idea of the answer. I asked which was the card on top of the pack in the closed box of my Angel cards.

After submitting my journal to you, I first went to look for the moved object, and I found it where Jim had said that it would be.

I then went to the box of 44 Angel cards, and found face down on the top of the pack, the card that he had told me. I could not have seen it when I put the pack away several days ago because I only looked at the card on the bottom of the pack which was face up.

Amazing proof !!!


~ Participant Journal Excerpt ~

When I went through the door, I straight away stretched forward my arms to greet whom I was going to meet. I had thought it would be my brother but instead it was my uncle who had passed 30 years ago. (He was my favorite uncle.) My uncle came forward with his beautiful smile and hugged me.
I was open for whomever of my relations wanted to meet me. Yet it was my uncle whom I don’t strongly grieve for but yet have and will always have love for.

(Written in December 2012) I saw the inside of a church with stained glass windows. I thought maybe it was the church funeral service. I saw lots of white flowers and then spotted white bows on the ends of the wooden pews. I realized it wasn’t a funeral service, but a wedding. I saw a couple getting married, holding a little baby boy. Larry was standing with them, smiling and glowing white again. When he passed away, he didn’t have any children and wasn’t married, so I figured this must be his niece or nephew’s wedding.

IN AN E-MAIL TO AREI TWO MONTHS LATER, THE PARTICIPANT WROTE THIS:

(Written in March 2013) I was able to confirm that the wedding Larry showed me in our first afterlife connection (Stage 3, December 14) actually happened last week (in February). Larry’s niece got married. So once again I was shown something that later proved to be true. They got married last week. I did also find a baby registry online, so they are expecting their first child.

Went to the beach and asked my husband to come. He arrived with our two dogs, who were jumping up at him. I asked if he could put his arm around me and did. Asked him how he was and he said that he was so peaceful ( and he seemed it). He said he didn’t know , while he was on the earth plane that life could be like this. He looked very relaxed and in control. He said he was very happy and knew that, at times, I was struggling and for that he wished I had gone first, but that there were so many important things I needed to do, here, and he needed to do on that side. I told him I would love to know what life is like there — that I know he has said it is hard to describe , but whatever and however he could explain things would be great. He replied that there are just so many opportunities and that everything and it’s potential are magnified to the nth degree. Life, in everything, is so much fuller and so much more dynamic. It’s beyond comprehension, but real and the reality there was a reality — not a dream like state like a fairy tale, but a true alternate reality ( and he laughed saying he knew that re: Trump this term is being used a lot here.)

I asked if he read. He said yes, but with the mind, not with the eyes like here, but it’s still called reading. I asked how the dogs were. He said they are ecstatic and with him. Kitty is with him as well and still running crooked and lovable as ever.

I asked if he had met my mother’s father. He said he had and that he was very cordial — very pleasant and that there is no hesitancy or awkwardness whenever people meet — that all of that is taken away — you are just free to interact wholly and easily as if you have known each other forever.

I asked if there was any sign — any info he could give me so that i would know that I was speaking to him — my husband. He said to look in his coat pocket and I would see a little folded up paper. I looked in his coat pocket and while I thought the pockets had been emptied, there was a folded up paper — wasn’t tiny as i expected, but it was a folded up paper.
