The Afterlife Unveiled: What the Dead are Telling Us About Their World [NOOK Book]

Overview

What happens to us when we die? Many think of heaven as an unimaginable state of bliss. As for hell, it's far out of proportion to any sin we might have committed and makes a travesty of God. But what if the afterlife was something very different? The key to such knowledge is mediumship. Three decades of research have taught the author, a world expert in the field of death and afterlife studies, who the most reliable voices are. These accounts are far better developed and more plausible than anything found in the world's scriptures or theologies. We hunger for a reliable revelation telling us that life here and now is meaningful and good, that each of us has an important part to play in its proper unfolding, that we are accountable for all we do, and that the godless materialism all around us is a pathological mistake. The world ahead, unlike ours, is fascinating and fair. Authentic mediums may be the closest thing to the voice of God that our planet has.

Editorial Reviews

metgat.zaadz.com/blog
When one is planning a trip to another country, it is prudent and wise to find out, in advance, as much about that country and its people as possible. The same may be said for the after-death "trip." Indications are that we are able to adjust and settle in much more easily if we know what to expect. In that sense, this book is an outstanding travel guide to the most important trip any of us will ever take.

    ┬┐The Afterlife Unveiled┬┐ by Stafford Betty Ph.D. is a unique boo

    “The Afterlife Unveiled” by Stafford Betty Ph.D. is a unique book that features information on what life after death may look like. Obviously, one has to have an open mind to read “The Afterlife Unveiled” because it a channeled book. However, there is a wealth of interesting information in this book. The following viewpoints are among a few of the writings included within the chapters:
    Page 7: Robin Williams starred in a movie about the afterlife called “What Dreams May Come.” “What Dreams May Come” is based on a fantasy novel of the same moniker (authored by Richard Matheson).
    Pages 15-21: There are at least 21 spheres of existence in the afterlife. The original channeled book of this information came from “Spirit Teachings” and written by William Stainton Moses (former Anglican minister).
    Pages 58-59: At least seven higher planes exist and the choice to reincarnate back on earth is optional (sourced from the book “The Road To Immortality” by Geraldine Cummins).
    Pages 65-68,74: Countless cities and occupations abound in the spirit world as on earth. Comedies and theater are shown in both humorous ways and the true reasons underlying the events (minus the violence). Details are given on how to grow in spirit. Many spirits are allowed the choice of foregoing reincarnation on earth and staying in the non-physical realms (sourced from the book “Life In The World Unseen” by Anthony Borgia).
    Page 107: At least three ways are given on how souls progress in the non-physical realms. Souls are also seen for exactly who they are in the non-physical realm. Many spirits also enjoy numerous members of their “spirit families” and light beings immediately greeting them after their physical death on earth.
    Page 109: Many spirits who commit suicide DO NOT transition to an eternal hell. However, those who commit suicide may end up being greeted by unsavory spirits who influenced their suicide and/or run the risk of at first landing in the non-physical realms alone and friendless. A compassionate view appears to be taken on suicide, but the problems that the man or woman tried to escape from on earth are still left unsolved in the non-physical realms.
    Page 111: Countless souls have the free-will to not return to earth, but many choose to reincarnate back on earth for the learning opportunities.
    There is so much more interesting information contained in this book. “The Afterlife Unveiled” by Stafford Betty is a positive and nourishing book for those who are curious and open-minded in reading about potential realities in the afterlife.

    For Everyone Planning the Ultimate Trip

    Professor Stafford Betty, the author, asserts that conventional beliefs regarding life after death are antiquated and that his book is intended to give a more realistic picture of what the "Other Side" is like. He points out that there is no conclusive evidence of what to expect when we die, but the accounts set forth in the book are consistently similar and more easily reconcilable with a just and loving God than the one offered to us by orthodox religion. Having done much research in this area and having written extensively on the subject, I totally agree with him. Much has come to us through credible mediumship, near-death experiences, and other paranormal phenomena about what to expect after death. Unfortunately, organized religions have rejected this modern revelation because it is not totally consistent with what it has interpreted from its good books and thus it presents a threat to their leadership. At the same time, science has rejected it because it cannot be analyzed in a test tube. In effect, this "modern revelation" is a victim of both religious and scientific fundamentalism. "Some religions take a dim view of mediums and warn that messages coming to us from the Other Side are from the Devil," Betty states in the Introduction. "Many scientists, on the other hand, tell us not to pay attention to such 'messages' because there is no such thing as spirits and life after death. Other people take a middle path, including some of the world's best scientists. They bring a critical but open mind to the topic. That is the attitude I take and encourage you to take." Betty explains that this book is not about the type of evidential communication we see on television these days. Rather, it is about what has been termed "spiraling mediumship" - wisdom and higher truths believed to be communicated by spirits with a mission to do more than provide evidence of the existence of the afterlife. "They reveal an astral world of amazing beauty and stepped-up intensity of thought and emotion," he writes, adding that they offer "an overall plan that explains not only the spirits' purpose over there but ours right here; and a mysterious grandeur that surpasses the ability of our language to describe it adequately." Many spirit communicators are quoted. "As the soul lives in the earth-life, so does it go to spirit-life," the author quotes one advanced spirit. "Its tastes, its predilections, its habits, its antipathies, they are with it still. It is not changed save in the accident of being freed from the body. The soul that on earth has been low in taste and impure in habit does not change its nature by passing from the earth-sphere, any more than the soul that has been truthful, pure, and progressive becomes base and bad by death." When one is planning a trip to another country, it is prudent and wise to find out, in advance, as much about that country and its people as possible. The same may be said for the after-death "trip." Indications are that we are able to adjust and settle in much more easily if we know what to expect. In that sense, this book is an outstanding travel guide to the most important trip any of us will ever take.
