Peter Panagore of Maine, an ordained minister in the United Church of Christ, will be the speaker at the next meeting of the Virginia Beach Friends of the International Association for Near-Death Studies (VBIANDS). Rev. Panagore died of hypothermia in 1980 while ice-climbing in Canada. He separated from his physical body and entered a timeless and beautiful Void where he talked with God telepathically. Peter became agonizingly aware of his sins, but God said, I love you. I made you this way. You’re my creature; you’re forgiven.”God added, “In the same way that I love you now, I have always loved you, only you couldn’t feel it. All is well. All has been well. You just don’t know it while on earth.” Peter came away from the experience understanding that God’s love is unconditional.The experience changed Peter’s life, and changed his concepts of God, life, and death. Now he is eager to share his message about life continuing beyond the physical and about the love and greatness of God.

For Saturday’s A.R.E. meeting, a donation of $5 is suggested at the door, but no one will be turned away until capacity of the mini-auditorium is reached.

“It’s like I’m sailing on the oceanZauriel
Every time I see your eyes
You could be the wind that keeps me floating
I could be in heaven for all I know
Heaven’s a place for me to go
No one ever could have told me how
No one ever could have told me how
Heaven could be here on earth”

“Heaven” -Carl Wilson


Praise is something we all want and at the same time feel uncomfortable receiving. I recently was given praise in its highest form.

A book.

About the work I do.

I’m honored….

Author Sharing Hope for the Holidays with New Book titled They’re Not Gone.

 

Phoenixville, PA – November 10, 2009 – Author,  A.P. Morris, is releasing a non-fiction book, They’re Not Gone, to coincide with the holiday season.

 

cover_blogThey’re Not Gone shares stories of 13 people whose loved ones passed away and their eventual ‘reconnection’ through the assistance of local Psychic Medium, Ricky Wood. Each story contains ‘evidence’ that their spirits are still very much alive.  Wood delivers specifics from names and dates to mannerisms and jokes to verify the spirit who is communicating.

“I wanted to share my story to give others hope, especially during the holiday season when missing them can be even more difficult.  I am now 100% positive that our loved ones don’t vanish with death, they are still very much alive,” Morris said.

A.P. Morris’s story in the book tells of the loss of her brother to suicide when she was just 16 years old.  After hearing from him through Psychic medium Ricky Wood, her life was transformed. Ricky Wood referred to a nickname of her brother’s that she had never told a soul about, allowing her to know definitively that he was still ‘alive.’

“I spent so many holiday seasons sad and depressed because I missed my brother so desperately.  If I’d only known that he wasn’t just gone, I think it may have been a whole lot easier for me,” A.P. Morris, author, said.

Each story offers a different type of love, loss, and lesson. Whether you’ve lost a child, spouse, parent, or great friend, there is a relationship that everyone can relate with.  Following each story, there is a question and answer section where the reader gets to learn more about Ricky’s beliefs based on his years of experience working as a Psychic Medium.

“I’m very excited to have the opportunity to share some amazing true life stories.  The information contained in this book could change so many people’s lives.  I know – it changed mine,” Morris said.amy bw

A.P. Morris feels that it was easier for her to believe in the continued existence of our spirits after she received ‘proof.’  Her hope is that by sharing these stories it will bring peace to many people’s lives, especially during this holiday season.

On December 2, 2009 you can purchase a copy of the book “They’re Not Gone,” for just $16.95 by visiting www.Amazon.com or www.theyrenotgone.com .

Meet the Author – at the Holiday Bazaar at Phoenixville Middle School (hosted by the National Junior Honor Society) on Saturday December 12, 2009 from 10am – 3pm.

“End of the Show” – Dennis Wilson


Del Mar, CA, March 4, 2009 – The scientific study of mediums (individuals who experience regular communication with the deceased) is over a century old. While serious research into the phenomenon has not been part of mainstream science, Dr. Julie Beischel, Director of Research at the Windbridge Institute in Tucson is pressing forward.

Her presentation at 7 pm on March 20th at the Scottish Rite Event Center in San Diego is titled Spirit in the Laboratory: What Science Can Tell Us about the Afterlife. The presentation will focus on how mediumship is investigated in a controlled laboratory setting, what conclusions can be drawn from the data collected to date, the practical applications of mediumship in grief recovery and hospice care, how mediumship can affect the lives of those who have lost a loved one, and how to choose a medium and get the most out of a reading. For more information and to purchase tickets, please visit www.windbridge.org/sandiego.htm

Dr. Beischel received her doctorate in Pharmacology and Toxicology with a minor in Microbiology and Immunology from the University of Arizona. She was the first recipient of the William James Post-doctoral Fellowship in Mediumship and Survival Research at the University of Arizona where she co-directed the VERITAS Research Program with Dr. Gary E. Schwartz.
