Overview

At the very foundation of religious faith and hope is a belief that consciousness will survive death and that we will live on in another dimension of reality. But that foundation easily crumbles when scientific minds are unable to wrap their brains around an afterlife, when they are unable to visualize a non-material world. As the foundation gives way, the philosophy of materialism takes hold and gives rise to moral decadence, egocentricity, hypocrisy, hatred, disorder, flux, strife, chaos, and fear. Such seems to be the state of the world today.

There is so much to be found outside the highly guarded boundaries of mainstream science and orthodox religion for those willing to open their minds to it, for those willing to recognize that the dissemination of Truth did not stop with the good books of organized religion and cannot always be found in the laboratory.

Beginning in 1848, a number of sensitive people began developing as mediums, bringing forth communications from the spirit world. One of the skeptics investigating the “popular madness” was Professor Robert Hare of the University of Pennsylvania. Intending to debunk it all, Hare would, after extensive research, become a believer. When he asked an apparently advanced spirit what it was all about, he was told that it was “a deliberate effort, on the part of the inhabitants of the higher spheres, to break through the partition which has interfered with the attainment, by mortals, of a correct idea of their destiny after death.” Unfortunately, both orthodox religion and mainstream science, acting out of ego and fear, have rebuked the efforts of those inhabitants of the higher spheres to enlighten us, thus permitting the foundations of both faith and hope to further crumble.

In The Afterlife Revealed, Michael Tymn sets forth some of the most credible messages from the spirits relative to the nature of their world. Instead of a heaven-hell dichotomy, we are told that there are many levels, or as Jesus is quoted, “many mansions,” and that we cross over to the “other side” based on what might be called a “moral specific gravity.” We discover a Divine plan – one of attainment and attunement, of gradual spiritual growth, of evolution of spirit through progressively higher planes. We see how we are really souls occupying bodies rather than bodies housing souls and how our souls are progressing in finding their way back to Oneness with the Creator through the challenges, the adversities, the trials and tribulations offered us in a particular lifetime.

Editorial Reviews

Back of the book - Stafford Betty, Ph.D.
You are likely to come away from reading this book feeling that you have at least a general idea of what to expect when you die. And that can be quite sobering, as Michael Tymn intends it to be.

    Researcher is closing in on the afterlife

    Michael Tymn is one of the world's foremost living experts on afterlife studies. His earlier book The Articulate Dead, a study of apparent spirit accounts reaching us through mediums, presented evidence in support of the "spirit hypothesis." He concluded that the best of these accounts could not have been inventions of the subconscious mind of the medium, for they contain a great deal of information, later confirmed to be true, unknown to the medium. But this same information was well known, in earth life, to the person whose spirit was said to be communicating through the medium. Tymn is a master of this "evidential" approach used to evaluate spirit communications. There is perhaps no one living today who has dissected so many of them and argued so successfully for their authenticity. This method of analysis, it seems to me, makes it close to certain that we survive our physical death and enter another world as "spirits" with memories, personality, and character intact.

    In this new book Tymn takes the next step. It is one thing to argue for the reality of life after death, but quite another to picture it. That is exactly what Tymn does here. Quite a bit of the book is taken up with repeating the earlier arguments for survival of death--and that is a strength of the present book--but then he ventures farther out. If you are wondering how an earthling can go about this, the answer is obvious on second thought. If we can show that a spirit communicating to us through a medium accurately recalls detailed information that his loved ones and friends later confirm, then there is good reason to take him at his word when he describes his experiences on the Other Side. If only a few "spirits" were capable of such feats, we would be wise to be on our guard. But when hundreds of voices, even thousands, coming to us through mediums from all over the world repeat much the same story, we should be impressed. What makes Tymn stand out among afterlife researchers is his perhaps uniquely vast knowledge of mediumistic sources. It is hard to believe that these sources, when assembled and collated, reveal nothing more than an enchanting chimera.

    As a result, you are likely to come away from reading this book feeling that you have at least a general idea of what to expect when you die. And that can be quite sobering, as Tymn intends it to be. Nothing stands out with greater clarity than this: We--all of us--are accountable for what we do on earth, for better or worse. The justice that we all seek in this world, but seldom find as we would like it, at last has its day. The universe revealed by spirits comes across as a vast moral gymnasium, with character development, or "soul growth," the Creator's top priority. How this all works out, and the otherworldly settings for its evolution, are the focus of this fascinating book.

    But this is not a book only about the afterlife. If you want to know what is expected of you in this life, then you would be wise to consult those intelligences closer to the Divine Source than we are. They are far from infallible, as they admit, but their point of view is inspiring and revitalizing. To anyone clueless about what life expects of us or horrified by the thought of death, this book could be life-changing here and now.
