Introduction

The Afterlife Communication Study was inspired by the work of Bruce Moen author of Afterlife Knowledge Guidebook and four other books on his exploration of what he refers to as the “afterlife”. I met Bruce and his wife Pharon in 2009; they had recently moved to the small town where I live. We immediately hit it off, like we had known each other before (which we have). We have had the fascinating opportunity to spend many hours discussing this subject.

I have been a professional psychic for twenty years. I never considered myself to be a “medium”, although I occasionally felt that I received impressions from those who had crossed over. I wanted to find a way to break through my belief that I wasn’t capable of clearly communicating with the dead at will, mainly because many of my clients had a desire to connect with their deceased loved ones.

I immediately read all of Bruce’s books and practiced some with his CD exercise recordings, but I really wanted to experience one of his workshops in person to build my confidence. Over the weekend of March 14 & 15, 2009, my opportunity to do so materialized, and I was not disappointed.

The workshop was held in the perfect location for such an event, a haunted old resort hotel called the Belleview Biltmore in Clearwater, FL. There were a total of eight people in the workshop — four of whom knew each other quite well, and four strangers. Four of the participants were professional psychics, and three of them were professional mediums. The goal of the workshop was to make contact with and receive verifiable information from a deceased loved one.

Because of my familiarity with altered states of consciousness, it was easy for me to reach the initiatory relaxed state of awareness using the preparatory processes that Bruce teaches.

Our first exercise after learning the inductive protocol was what Bruce calls “retrieval” of a deceased person, by means of a kind of guided “meditation”. My guide/helper/twin, Karyl, appeared to me right on cue, wearing in a long blue dress. She brought my attention to a squirrel scampering by; I followed it to an old man sitting on a park bench. He wore a rumpled suit and hat and was leaning on a cane. He seemed to be enjoying the park, but was somewhat confused. I got the impression he had Alzheimer’s. He said his name was Ralph, and that his daughter, Becky, had gone to get some apples and would be right back. She had told him to wait right there – so he was. He told me it was 1974, and he was in Ohio. When Bruce instructed us to ask for a Helper to come, his wife “Marianne” (also deceased, of course) appeared. His face lit up as he recognized her, and off they went. Et voila! A successful “retrieval”!

Bruce instructed us to follow the “retrievees” so as to see where they went. All I could see were tiny points of light or stars in a black background and I had my first conscious experience of the sense of astral flying. When I asked why I was chosen for this “retrieval” the answer was that I look like his daughter.

I didn’t really receive any verifiable information that I could verify, but previous experience in my work as a psychic convinced me that, because the “pictures” I saw were generally clear and vivid, the “retrieval” did actually happen in some dimension.

The next exercise was extremely exciting. We each wrote on a piece of paper the first and last name of a now-deceased individual whom we had known personally, and whom we wished to contact. Each participant then drew one of the slips of paper, the objective being that the name he or she drew be unknown to its recipient. Bruce then guided the group through the process of contacting the people named and gaining verifiable information from them. (Verified information will be in parenthesis.)

My first impression was of a “grandfatherly” type person. (My partner had written down his paternal grandfather’s name.)

I saw a man with a white beard. (He went to stay with his grandfather once for a very memorable summer. A large portrait of Ernest Hemingway hung on the wall over his grandfather’s bed; it made a strong impression on my partner. In his later years, of course, Hemingway famously sported a bushy white beard.)

I could see the grandfather playing chess or checkers. (That summer they played a lot of chess.)

The setting in which I saw the old man was pastoral, with green grass and rolling hills, but it did not seem like a farm. (His grandfather worked in a nature preserve for many years and loved it.)

I got a woman with a name that began with an “M”. (The name of the young man I was reading for began with an “M”.)

I got a pain in my left ear and mouth almost immediately. (His grandfather did have ear problems.)

Grandfather said, “Tell your mother I’m sorry”. (My partner said his parents were divorced, but his mother had taken care of his grandfather at the end of his life. He was not aware of anything for which his grandfather needed to apologize, but he said there could have been.)

I got the sense that the old man was good-natured. (My partner remembered his grandfather as rather stern and reserved — he’d been a military man.)

All in all, my partner felt I had given him accurate information, along with a few “maybes”.

The name I wrote down was my that of sister, Linda. Linda and her husband were brutally murdered in 2006 by their personal trainer. While we know many of the details of the crime, there are still some unanswered questions.

The woman that was reading for me heard “she wears turquoise” and saw a flowered cloth she perceived as a tablecloth. (I was wearing a flowered jacket and turquoise/blue dress the day of the workshop.)

She immediately felt pain in her neck and down to her breast. Her “interpreter” translated that to maybe a stroke or breast cancer. (Her killer slit her throat and stabbed her repeatedly in the back.)

She got that Linda didn’t die right away and hospice was involved. (We don’t really know how long she lived after the attack, but Hospice was certainly not involved.)

She said she was fine now and her husband was with her. (They both died in the same incident.)

She saw us sitting, chatting over coffee with flowers around. (I couldn’t relate to this, unless it was at her funeral!)

At one point she got that Linda was 40, then in her mid to late 60’s. (She was 59 when she died.)

She said, “Tell Madeline she makes a great cheese plate.” Meaning to her that she knew Madeline. (Madeline was a participant in the workshop, an old family friend who knew Linda, and who brought cheese and crackers to the workshop for afternoon snacking!)

She saw a short-haired, ugly cat. (Linda had a long-haired ugly cat. My reader said to her, short haired cats were ugly, long-haired cats were not – an example of “the interpreter” getting in the way of “the observer”?)

So in this exercise I, too, received some verifiable information.

My husband, Parker, who is not a professional psychic and claims no particular “psi” gifts, nevertheless came up with some of the most specific information of the afternoon. The woman for whom he was “reading” had written down the name of a dear friend, a man who was both mentor and benefactor to her at various times in her life, but who was never her lover. Parker retrieved a goodly amount of generally accurate, albeit symbolic or metaphorical, information. Most astonishing – and amusing – was the image of a female torso, with a mole between and slightly below the breasts, and slightly off center. (The image came when Bruce instructed us to ask for some verifiable information to bring back.) When Parker laid that goody on her, she laughed heartily, saying she did indeed have a mole down there that had always “bothered” her because it was “off center”!

When Parker was writing the name of the person he wanted to contact, he had trouble choosing between two dear friends (both now dead, of course). He finally selected the name by arbitrarily muscle-testing. Interestingly, the information his “reader” brought back applied to both! Even the physical description of the person he encountered was a combination of the two. Bruce said it was not uncommon for that to happen when one is conflicted about choosing a “contactee”.

Everyone in the workshop managed to retrieve at least some verifiable information, which only affirms the power and simplicity of the techniques that Bruce teaches. With his mechanical engineers mind and years of methodical research, he has developed a method of afterlife communication that is easy to use and easy to learn.

The Afterlife Communication Study was created to allow me the opportunity to practice my mediumship skills.

(#5 did not remember any specific incident where he came to her right after his transition, however there was a near-miss accident right after where she felt she was “invisible”, like she had experienced with him before his transition.

“It’s not as bad as you think” – meaning death, it was said with a sense of humor. He will be waiting for him. I got a sense of a problem with #5’s father’s legs or feet and there is something he could be doing and isn’t because he thinks it won’t work, but he needs to do it – it will help. (I asked #5’s if her father was afraid to die, but she said she didn’t think so. I think she just isn’t aware of the depth of his fear. He does have something wrong with his legs. She isn’t aware of anything specific he isn’t doing that he knows about.)

“She never mean to” – that was all I could get (#6 had a list of what that could have meant, including an attempted suicide after her father left.)

10. Do you have a special message for me?
Proud of her for what she has accomplished and how she raised her daughters, #6 reminds her of herself, they look alike (She always told #6 that she was proud of her and they did have many of the same body features, they were both good at whatever they put their minds to.)

11. (Ask your loved one whatever questions you may have)
Do you see (name 1)? Sometimes, “she is someplace else”, sometimes interact, not much (It was her sister who is alive)
Do you see Dad? Yes, a lot, that is who is around her (He is in spirit)
Do you see (name 2)? Sometimes, feels distant, some interaction (She is in spirit)

I saw a steamy bathroom, my attention was drawn to the mirror, not sure if it had already happened or was to happen, may be able write in the steam on the mirror, trying various things to get her attention (She did not remember anything that has already happened, however, since his transition she has focused on learning to mirror gaze by reading Raymond Moody’s book. She got something of his that he kept in his bathroom after his transition.)

10. Do you have a special message for me?
They had been married in a previous life, probably the most recent past life, so much in love, this life was a Dharma lifetime – not Karma, he was here as a gift in this life, a special connection, he trusts her, you were there for him, it is time for her to wake up [spiritually] and he will help and guide her with her spiritual growth, so you will understand where he is and what is happening to him, his early death (48) was part of the plan, not an accident, the way it was meant to be. (#5 always felt like they had been married before and has been on a spiritual journey since his transition)

11. (Ask your loved one whatever questions you may have)
Was he at his funeral? A male friend stood up and said something about a trip and he was amazed by it, “had no idea” (Yes, he did say something about a trip at his funeral)

#7 has had the experience of him pushing down on her twice and heard her name while awake and he touched her hand like she did to him in the morgue in a “dream”.

NOTE: This was a particularly interesting session to me because #9 had read the questions and came to her own conclusions about what my responses would be. I did not give the responses SHE expected, but after thinking about it, they were probably the responses HE would have given.

It was a long process, as she had been talking and thinking about it for a very long time. Perhaps “the surrounded by people she loved” and all that, was when she reached the other side]

“Wanted you to have that”, I saw a picture, something made for you by her that is displayed, not sure if they were the same things. You have a picture of her you talk to.

Doesn’t think there is anything under a bed related to her.)

10. Do you have a special message for me?
“Thank you for what you did, I know it was hard” Appreciation for everything towards the end and her whole life and the support and “being her cheerleader”, sorry for the nonsense and what she put her through, she has regrets in her life and visits her. I saw #14 in her bed with a night stand to her left and her standing on that side of the bed, she said #14 has looked at her and sensed her coming from that direction. “It’s easier being there than here. I can understand it all differently from here and here is not so far away” (She lived with #14 for the last ten years of her life and it was very difficult for both of them with her depression and suicidal tendency. There is a night stand on the left of #14’s bed, not sure if she has felt her from that direction. #14 was always there for her and she knows she appreciated it. She has had dreams of her) [I got very emotional/teary during this question, which sometimes happens when a guide or discarnate person is very strong and close to me. It is something about the change in frequency.]

9. Show, tell or give us something that proves this visit is real.
“Get this tie off me!”, saw him ripping off a neck tie, like a private story/joke between them (#15 couldn’t relate to that. “While that comment about ties isn’t something that I recall or that resonates between him and me, I do recall that he rarely ever used ties. Don’t think I saw him wearing a tie in my life, so only in that sense it does make sense.”) [In a followup email Caryl asked #15 if maybe his uncle was dressed in a tie in his casket, but he was cremated.]

She is going to be a guide or helper and help you with the details of your new career, “she will whisper in your ear”)

NOTE: The confusion between the Mother and Sister in the beginning was interesting. Bruce has noted this type of confusion in his research. It was also fun to be so accurate on #8 since I haven’t been very accurate with that question in most of the sessions.
