If you should ever leave me
Though life would still go on believe me
The world could show nothing to me
So what good would living do me
God only knows what I’d be without you

“God Only Knows” -The Beach Boys


The following is from the A.P.Morris site “They’re Not Gone” . This is probably one of the most important sessions in my fifteen year history as a medium. Thank you Candace for the hope you bring everyday.

Grieving the death of a child is by far the worst pain a parent can feel. How can it NOT be? A parent’s first instinct is to protect their children.

Dealing with grief from losing a child can seem near impossible and for many, believing in an afterlife is the only thing that can help at all. It won’t take the pain away but for fleeting moments, knowing that their angel is in fact safe and happy, can provide small windows of peace.

Mathy Downing is a parent who has had to survive the unsurvivable — losing a child. At the tender age of 12 years old, her daughter Candace passed away. The most crippling and horrific part was that it could have been avoided.

For most of us growing up, we watched our parents put their trust in doctors. At that time, medications were more of a last resort for any problem or illness. Unfortunately, in the current times, pharmaceutical drugs are prescribed at an astronomical rate.

Sadly, Candace’s life was unfairly taken from her because she was a causality of this epidemic.

( “They’re Not Gone”, excerpt from Chapter 13 –An Angel Like No Other, pg. 194)

( excerpt of Mathy speaking to Psychic Medium, Ricky Wood about her daughter Candace )

“You’re right,” Mathy responded sadly. “She was not depressed, she was put on anti-depressants not for depression, but for anxiety, and she did take her own life.” Mathy already knew unequivocally that Candace was not depressed and that the drugs she was prescribed caused it. At that moment she felt understood watching Ricky’s reaction. After a roller coaster ride of medications, Candace met an untimely death.

Although Mathy already believed in the afterlife and our own innate ability to receive messages from our loved ones, Mathy was comforted by Ricky Wood’s ability to understand the absolute devastation that she felt. She was also amazed by his ability to ’see’ her at a future event and provide advice.

( “They’re Not Gone”, excerpt from Chapter 13 –An Angel Like No Other, pg. 195)

“Mathy,” Ricky continued, “I see you standing at a podium in front of hundreds of people. BE STRONG. You have to be strong because they want to see your tears.” Ricky continued adamantly, “You have got to be strong. You can’t cry in front of them because that is what they want to see.” Six months later, Mathy was standing at a podium in front of hundreds of people addressing the FDA. She stood tall and strong telling them,  on“I am not impressed with you sitting back in your ivory towers passing judgment on our children, and our children’s blood is your hands.” She did not cry. This statement was replayed in the New York Times, World News Tonight, Fox, MSNBC, and the Today Show. Even at a medical conference, the head speaker quoted her in discussing the corruption of the drug industry in marketing drugs, over medication in our society, and how they are being used to make a buck.

Mathy Downing and her family continue to tirelessly advocate for parents and children’s rights to be informed of the potential tragic side effects of medicating children. Their strength and determination will save countless lives– sparing others the unthinkable grief from losing a child .

The death of a child is unfair, excruciatingly painful, and will probably never completely leave you. But my hope is that you will find some peace knowing that the love you and your child share will never die. It can’t. Your child is a spirit who is still with you today.

They’re Not Gone.

Wishing You Love & Peace,

friends_vbiands“Life supporting waves of bliss
Mother Divine’s precious kiss
Brings with love the light of wisdom
And the gift of eternal freedom”

“All This is That” -The Beach Boys

Virginia Beach Friends of the International Association for Near-Death Studies is a local non-profit organization dedicated to the support of those who have had a Near-Death Experience (NDE), Out-of-Body Experience (OBE), or other Spiritually Transformative Experience (STE), as well as those who are interested in learning more about NDEs, OBEs, or STEs.

They fulfill their mission through a monthly speaker meeting, weekly sharing group meetings, maintaining a study and lending library, and posting videos of many of our speakers on the Internet via the web site of Fellowship of the Inner Light.

INTERNATIONAL ASSOCIATION FOR NEAR-DEATH STUDIES

Welcomes

Peter Panagore
to our next meeting on Saturday, March 6, 2010 10 – noon at the A.R.E.(The Association of Research and Enlightenment) Atlantic & 67th Street, Virginia Beach
$5.00 Suggested/NONE turned away until max. capacity.Peter Panagore 4348

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.

calvin_hobbes_640_480There has never been a comic strip that captured my imagination like “Calvin and Hobbes” .  I would even give “Calvin and Hobbes” collections as birthday, Christmas gifts etc. Spending a quiet rainy afternoon with a PBJ reading about Spaceman Spiff or  Calvin’s transmorgrifier would melt my worries away.

Joel Schroeder has now put together a documentary film that will celebrate and explore the art and impact of Calvin & Hobbes, created by Bill Watterson…..

About this project

Calvin & Hobbes dominated the comics in thousands of newspapers for over ten years, having a profound effect on millions of readers across the globe. When the strip’s creator, Bill Watterson, retired the strip on New Year’s Eve in 1995, devoted readers everywhere felt the void left by the departure of Calvin, Hobbes, and Watterson’s other cast of characters, and many fans would never find a satisfactory replacement.

It has now been more than a decade since the end of the Calvin & Hobbes era. Bill Watterson has kept an extremely low profile during this time, living a very private life outside of Cleveland, Ohio. Despite his quiet lifestyle, Mr. Watterson is remembered and appreciated daily by fans who still enjoy his amazing collection of work.

Mr. Watterson has inspired and influenced millions of people through Calvin & Hobbes. Newspaper readership and book sales can be tracked and recorded, but the human impact he has had and the value of his art are perhaps impossible to measure.wattersonrare

Dear Mr. Watterson is a film that will look to the readers and fans of Calvin & Hobbes to tell the story of the strip and its creator. As we explore the art and impact of Bill Watterson through this unique perspective, the undying appreciation and love of Calvin & Hobbes and the man behind it will be evident in the anecdotes, stories, and memories shared by readers of the strip and friends and colleagues of Mr. Watterson.

While the crew has been donating their time to make this project happen, we’ll be taking several trips to conduct interviews and collect footage, so the costs of air tickets, rental cars, meals, and motel stays will add up. If we raise our minimum goal of $12,000 all at once through Kickstarter, we’ll be able to move forward on this film with less of a funding hurdle, and the more we raise on top of that, the more we can do with the film, and the faster we can do it.

So many people have expressed such gratitude to us for making this film, and in turn, I have great appreciation for those of you who are able to support us in this endeavor.

Thank you so much for helping us reach $12,000. With so much time left, let’s see if we can double that!

Joel

tn_supe-vs-captmarvelThis is where the rubber meets the road. After months of delay, the full Senate is about to debate and vote on landmark health care legislation. But first, Senator Harry Reid and Democratic leaders have a big decision to make:

Will the Senate consider real health care reform with a public health insurance option, or a watered-down compromise full of giveaways to Big Insurance?

This is a hugely important decision. Progressive champions in Congress are standing strong for the public option and Sen. Reid himself has expressed support—but he’s under immense pressure from a few conservative obstructionists who oppose it.

We need to send a loud signal: If Sen. Reid leads on the public option, we’ll be there to get his back. Can you sign our petition asking him to include a strong public health insurance option in the Senate’s bill?

Clicking here will add your name:

http://pol.moveon.org/harryreid/o.pl?id=17554-11381997-ilUAiGx&t=3

The petition reads: “Senator Reid, real health care reform must include a strong public health insurance option. Please include the public option in the bill you bring to the Senate floor.”

The headlines today are about a flawed bill without a public option that a few conservative Democrats managed to push through the Senate Finance Committee.

But the overwhelming majority of Democrats in Congress continue to support the public option—as does President Obama, and two-thirds of the American public.1 And just last week 30 Democratic senators wrote to Sen. Reid urging him to include the public option.2

nvreidReid has been supportive: earlier this month, he said “I believe the public option is so vitally important to create a level playing field and prevent the insurance companies from taking advantage of us.”3

In other words, we’re closer than ever to winning real health care reform. But we’ve got to raise our voices now to make sure the public option gets through the Senate.

We all have our dreams
It’s wonderful to know we’re alive
At the end

There you are

Mem’ries are real
It’s wonderful to know you’re alive
At the end

“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.

juliebeischel1

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.
