I have been asked a lot about my work with Rich Martini and besides the books that he has written about the afterlife and our work, you can hear him tonight on Coast to Coast with George Noory!

Tonight on Coast to Coast; yours truly “The Afterlife Expert” (as dubbed by George Noory.) Talking about work with Jennifer Shaffer, Scott De Tamble and sailing into the flipside. Recent chats with Peter Fonda, Microsoft founder Paul Allen (interview points to a cure for CTE) Art Bell and “a tree” who revealed “how to save earth” (“plant a trillion trees.”) My voice will reach more people tonight than all of my films/books combined. (Audience; 2.5 million). Caveat: if you don’t want to know how the play ends; don’t tune in.
DATE – Friday – October 4, 2019
HOST – George Noory
GUESTS – Richard MartiniOpen Lines

Author and afterlife researcher Rich Martini will discuss his belief that upon death no one really dies. Rich will share his research and information that he says he obtained by interviewing folks after they have passed away such as Bill Paxton, Robin Williams, Tom Petty, and others. Followed by Open Lines in the latter half.

There is not a day that goes by where I do not think about you. I Love you dad and I know that you are not gone, you are just not here…


For those of you that are missing your loved ones especially today, think of a fun memory in time that you shared with them and try to turn your grief into nostalgia. Ask for your loved ones to show you a sign that they are around. Connect with your heart because that is your telephone line to them, your very own unique frequency that gets their attention. Try not to judge what comes through. The more that you are open to possibilities that they are around, the more that you will feel their presence. Like best selling author and director Rich Martini has said many times from our collaboration of interviews in his books – “They are not gone, just not here…”

Memorial Day – Interview with an American Hero on the Flipside – Major Brent Taylor by Richard Martini

Major Brent Taylor Brent Russell Taylor (July 6, 1979 – November 3, 2018) was an American politician and Army National Guard officer. He served as mayor of North Ogden, Utah from January 2013 until November 2018, when he was killed while serving in Afghanistan.

The following is a transcript of an interview Jennifer Shaffer and I did with Major Brent Taylor.  It was just after he passed, and he didn’t think it was the right time for us to inform his family that he was okay, that he had not died – he was just in “another place.”

But he was hero to his family, to his town, to his country.  When he passed, my wife Sherry mentioned that she had seen a photograph of his wife, and something told her that we should reach out to him in our weekly interviews. We did last November.

This morning (May 2nd) she reminded me that “it’s time” that I post what was learned from him on the flipside.

And as an early Memorial Day post, I am putting this post up for his family and friends to see. (It bears repeating; our loved ones don’t die. They move on – but they are not gone. They’re just not here.)

The transcript of our conversation with #BrentTaylor is as follows:

Note: Jennifer Shaffer is a medium who works with law enforcement nationwide on missing person cases. I’ve been filming our interviews for the past three years. We began by speaking to people that I knew who had crossed over, details that I could verify, and that expanded into people on the flipside who knew people that I knew, or whom share a “frequency” (musicians, actors, etc).

Ms. Shaffer

As time progressed, we realized we could talk to anyone who wanted to or agreed to speak with us (not everyone does). I ask fairly non-denominational questions about the path and journey. (For more context, please check out the film or book “Flipside” or “It’s a Wonderful Afterlife,”Hacking theAfterlife,” and the two books that have come out of our interviews; “BackstagePass to the Flipside: Talking to the Afterlife with Jennifer Shaffer.”)

Our weekly meetings.

The following interview does not fit into a category of people we knew, or could know – but as you’ll see from the interview, we reached out to someone who crossed over and was in the news. In this case it is Major Brent Taylor.  For those of you who don’t know of Major Taylor, Brent was the Mayor of his town North Ogden Utah, was on patrol in Afghanistan, and was killed.  He left behind a family of 7.

The following is a transcript of what was filmed on November 18th, 2018. My comments are in italics, and Jennifer’s replies are in bold. (I sometimes “ask” for people to come forward and Jennifer tells me who they are based on some reference, but in this case, I thought he might be too difficult to recognize.)

I have someone I want to bring forward – just because we can – Sherry asked about him. I’m just going to tell you who it is… your dad will know him on the flipside. (Brent was Mormon and Jennifer’s father Jim was a Mormon bishop). This man died last week serving in Afghanistan… His last name is Taylor, his first name is Brent. This was Sherry’s idea, she said to me “You need to reach out to his wife…”

My dad says “They’re on it.” (Meaning: “Asking him to step forward to speak.”)

Can we talk to this guy?


Very good.

Jennifer smiles.

So Brent tell us about your journey. Officer Taylor from Ogden Utah.

He is very handsome. He has blue eyes.

(Note: He does. I just now checked while posting this pic)

Couple of questions for you. Can I call you Brent?


So Brent; What the hell were you doing? You were on your fourth tour of duty, what were you thinking? (said in a lighthearted fashion, as I’ve found being lighthearted can yield different kinds of information.)

He says “It was silly… it was…”  I don’t mean silly, he’s joking around. He says “He died, but it was something…” He says “It’s like you come back from skiing and (do something stupid like) hit your head … something very routine,” it felt like.  It happened outside… it was an outside event. It was routine (the mission) – nothing had ever happened before (during a mission), it was like a lone star dad did it.

With a friend who was killed just
after this photo was taken.

(Note: I don’t know what this means; “A lone star dad.”  I think he means someone who lost a family member in battle.  The lone star flag is traditionally the symbol of a family who lost a son or daughter to war (His reference). “The flag is white with a red border and one or more blue stars in the center: one star for each family member serving in the military during times of war or hostility. If a service member dies, the blue star is covered by a gold star.” Wiki)

Was this your 4th tour?

“Fourth and a half tour.”

(Note: He’s correcting me, and us.  Not a detail Jennifer knew about or knows about nor I. Again, I have not told Jennifer we would speak with this fellow, she’s reporting what she hears or sees verbatim.)

Who was there to greet you?


Good, we’ll get back to that.

(Note: For purposes of brevity, I set the “God” comment aside to ask other questions.)

Just a partial family pic.

What do you miss about being here?

“His kids.”

What would you like to tell your kids?

“That I love them and they’ll see me again.”

Anything you want to tell your wife?

“That I’m sorry for leaving.”

Well you’re not gone, really, are you?


(Note: It’s what people often say. “I know I still exist, but my loved ones don’t believe I do.”)

Tell us how she can talk and connect to you.

It feels like “After her grief, it’s going to take a long time. It feels like three years; they met when they were young, it felt like they knew instantly… felt like…”

(Note: The best advice we’ve heard about grief came from Jennifer’s dad Jim. He said “turn grief to nostalgia.” We asked what he meant; he said “grief only contains sad memories. Nostalgia contains both sad and happy memories. When you can turn grief to nostalgia you can begin to heal.”)

Have you had other lifetimes with your wife?

(Jennifer to me:) Give me a second. Give me his name again?

Brent Taylor.

I felt yeah, they knew each other before. But they met each other in school could have been in college.

Not gone. Just not here.

Where or how did you first meet in school?

“Through a friend.”

Show it to Jennifer. Were you inside or outside? Was it at a party?

He showed me online almost…

So you saw a picture of her before you met her?

No, hold on – they knew about each other but they hadn’t met.

So that first time….

I keep getting BYU.

Jennie Taylor

Don’t judge it. Brigham Young University in Ogden; is that you where you met?

(Note: I have no idea where or how he met his wife. Again, we’re meeting him for the first time. When Jennifer gets a detail wrong, it’s because she’s misinterpreting what she’s seeing or hearing. The only way to know how accurate this is to interview his family. Today, while writing this post, I looked up his facebook page, and saw that indeed, he taught at BYU.)

Yes. Outside of BYU – but almost there.

Jim, you can help us with this…

(Note: Jim is Jennifer’s father who is on the flipside.)

Jim says “I’ll try.”

Brent this is Jim, he’s a former Mormon bishop.

He said “he helped him before he came in” (to our discussion today.)

Jim what would you like to tell Brent?

“Don’t judge it.” He showed my head… (Jennifer’s head) He said “To not judge the idea that we can talk” (to each other in this fashion.)

Is that for Brent?

Yeah, he’s showing him so he can learn how to do this (communicate) on his own.  (Aside, to me:) We’re the number one class to learn how to talk to their loved ones.

(Note: As mentioned in “Backstage Pass” the format of our discussion with the flipside takes the form of a class – and Luana Anders (my friend on the flipside) moderates the class and offers “backstage passes” to those who want to come and speak with us. In the following exchange, we’ve found in our research that folks on the flipside point out that “all religions” are about selfless, unconditional, familial love.)

I want to be clear that Jennifer’s father Jim can help you Brent, to be aware of the nature of…

“He is.” (Helping him.)

Okay. I’m suggesting this, because you’re going to learn things that may be contrary to what you were taught in church.

That’s what my dad is saying to him; “Don’t judge it.”

Brent is that stressful or weird to have to address it? (This new reality).

“Yes. Everything is weird over here.” It’s like he can’t help (thinking) ..  he’s thinking about his wife and kids who are crying… and showing me that the church is helping them because they’re saying (to them) “they’re going to see each other again.”  But there’s like a big wall, and they can’t hear it. (Or hear Brent).

Brent, we may be able to help them talk to you. Would you like us to help with that?

“Yes, but after the New Year. It’s too soon.”

(Note: In one session, we asked what the “simplest method” of communication was. We were told 1. say the loved one’s name. 2. Ask your questions. When I asked “How can people tell the difference between imagination and their loved one?” We were told “When you hear a response before you can actually form the question you’ll know you have a connection.”)

My wife looked at a picture of your wife and heard the message that she needs help. Who sent my wife that message?

“It came from all of us.”

Perhaps helping your loved ones to understand you still exist and can communicate with them will help other people – I’m not going to take on the dogma of the afterlife from the church; I’ll let Jim do that.

He (Jim) says “He’s doing that over there but says he’s “one of a kind.”

If we can get them to address or accept that people in the Celestial Kingdom are accessible and you can still talk to them; that would that be a thing of value, wouldn’t it?

(Note: My in-laws that are from Utah. My wife’s family dates back to Joseph Smith’s doctor; they also date back to the American Revolution and the Mayflower. (Resolved White).  By raising the topic of religion is not to disparage it in any way. The point I’m raising isn’t to argue about what separates us – but to examine how we are all connected, all part of the same source; spiritually and physically.)

(Jennifer laughs.) My dad said “It’s funny, if I was in the Celestial Kingdom you wouldn’t be able to talk to me.” Hold on. (Jennifer aside to me) It’s like my higher self can talk to my dad, but he’s a fraction of what he is there (energy or soul wise), just like we’re a fraction of what we are here. So my self is talking to him the best way I can.

What I’m asking is, that when I address this with religious folks, for example, when we discuss the idea “in marriage you were sealed…”

“For all time.”

Okay. My point is not religious one, but to point out we are all connected, because it’s the nature of our journey – we are always “sealed” or tethered to each other, to our loved ones. Is that correct?

“The Soul is.”

Okay, thanks for putting up with my side bar.  Let me ask, I read that after your death, a fellow soldier wrote a letter to your wife.

“A close friend,” it feels like.

Yes, he was from Afghanistan – Brent trained him… His initials are A. R. – He wrote a beautiful letter to your wife Jennie, reporting that Brent taught him so much about…

“Family.” That’s what Brent said. And “How it inspired him to be better, what it did for his whole family…” He’s talking about it and it’s like people converted too because of him.

Okay. In the letter, he said family isn’t important…

“That it is everything.”

Yes, that is exactly what he wrote.  But tell me Brent, you said that “God was there to greet you…” What was that like? Was god a male, female or an object, a thing? How did you perceive God?

He says “God was energy, like a big enormous amount of energy of love.”  He said he felt like he… “he knew when he experienced that love, he knew he had served well.”

Served… what?

The country, his family…

Okay, but I mean when you’re meeting God and you’re getting that feeling of unconditional love…

“That’s it.” He said it was “Unconditional love.”  I know your question is “What was that?” He says “I felt it more than I saw it. It’s like I felt it and I experienced it.”

So it was a feeling of God, more than seeing God?

He saw God too.

Okay, and this is what I’d like to examine.

(Jennifer pauses) Give me a second. I asked Brent “Was it energy or a person?” He said “It was neither. He said he saw an indescribable light.”

What’s I’m examining is, knowing that you’re meeting me and Jennifer and Luana for the first time – there are many around you, here in this classroom, who know about this journey…

He says “I’m very miniscule.”

You’re someone who has had a profound affect on many people.

He’s speaking about his family. He says “His child is having a birthday that is coming up.” (This was November of 2018).

Luana Anders is our guide on the Flipside.

I just want you to know that I ask everyone these questions, and am trying to explore. When you say “It was a bright light…” was it more of a light? A person? Was it more of an experience?

“Yes. It was an experience.”

We’ve heard before… “That God is beyond…”

“Right; it comes all at once.”

(Note: In my book “It’s a Wonderful Afterlife” a skeptic asked “Who or what is God?” Her guide told her “God is beyond the capacity of the human brain to comprehend. It’s not physically possible. However you can experience God – by opening your heart to everyone and to all things.” I was about to ask that question but Brent answered my question before I could form it.)

What if anything can we learn about that particular radiation of energy?

“Yes, you can learn it – from everybody else that you come in contact with.”


(Note: Another way of saying that we’re “all connected” or that we can “open your heart to everyone and all things.”)

Everyone has it, (that source energy), is that correct?

“Yes, humans and animals.”

If you don’t mind me asking this question; have you been greeted by anyone whose life was ended by you as a soldier?


What was that like?

He said “He felt love coming from them. The same God Cure… – it’s like a cure.”

Was that surprising for you?

“Yes. Not surprising, but yes, he knew (with regard to) the way he lived his life…”  

But are you aware now of what people say; that you’ve had many lifetimes?


From what we’ve learned, is it possible to see that these people who died in battle were part of your journey and they signed up for that life experience?


Any regrets about this journey you’ve taken?

He says “He has no regrets.”

(Note: People under deep hypnosis often claim that everything that occurs during a lifetime was “planned in advance” or “agreed to.”  Not that it was “set in stone” because we all have “free will” but I’ve filmed cases where people recall a previous lifetime (as seen in the film “Flipside”) where they had “agreed to participate.” This is not theory, opinion or belief – I’ve been filming them saying these same relative things for over a decade. They often say they have “no regrets” other than leaving too soon – they lived as fully as they could in the time allotted.)

So Brent, anything you miss about being on the planet?

“Everything. — The air. The trees, the crisp… the crackling of walking on dried leaves and sand between your toes and the salt air of the Salt Lake  and the sunset with his wife his kids… and their toothpaste… (Jennifer puts one hand over the other) The hands that go over… the kid’s hand that goes over his… seeing his son play baseball… seeing his daughter figure skate and his youngest child singing, one of them is singing crazily.  Missing my wife. (After a pause) But not missing her cooking.” (Jennifer laughs.)

(Note: This poured out of Jennifer, this exchange brought tears to my eyes; it’s the first we’ve had someone speak so eloquently, passionately about what they miss about being on the planet. (And the punchline is about as funny as I’ve heard from someone on the flipside.) I have no way of knowing if this is accurate – only his family will.  If it’s not accurate, or misinterpreted, then it was said so that his family (and others) could dismiss this account entirely. If it is accurate, then it was a revelation for them only. Nothing in his comments would prove or disprove what people already believe.)

What was the one dish you didn’t like?

He’s saying “Casserole. Stroganoff.”

Well, what about the Marshmallows-in-Jello dish I see whenever I’m in the All-You-Can-Eat buffet in Utah?

“Yes. That too.”

In terms of Afghanistan; you were there quite a bit. What if anything do you miss about it?

“The people. — The people trying to work things out, trying to give them responsibility…  um. Seeing people come together and not be torn apart.”

Anything you want to tell Abdul Rahman?

(Note: He’s the fellow who wrote the letter to Jennie Taylor telling her how much her husband taught him in life and wanted to share that with her. I didn’t say his name but Jennifer/Brent knew who I was referring to.)

He’s grateful. He’s grateful. He didn’t know that he would say all those things, but I feel like he helped him. (To write it.)

Are you grateful for writing the letter or for the friendship?

“All of it.”

That’s very profound Brent. Thank you for coming to talk to us, we want you to be aware that Jennifer’s dad can help you at any time.

“He is.”

Thanks Major Brent Taylor.

“Call me Brother Brent.”

Very funny. I promise to reach out to your wife after the New Year.

(Note: Today, my wife mentioned this interview, asked if I had gotten around to reaching out to his wife. This post is my way of reaching out. If you knew Major Taylor or members of his family – please forward. I don’t want to intrude – but if you feel moved to, please do.

For those curious about me or my background, “Flipside” “It’s a Wonderful Afterlife” or “Hacking the Afterlife” are the contextual background to this research.

Jennifer Shaffer works with law enforcement nationwide to help with missing person cases. The two books that came out of our interviews are in “Backstage Pass to the Flipside: Talking to Jennifer Shaffer Book One and Two.”  Jennifer is available to speak to people who want or need to connect to their loved ones, they can find her online at

My two cents.

Then we have proof of concept written by Richard Martini

This past weekend I was invited by my pal Jennifer Shaffer ( to participate in a “proof of concept” event in Manhattan Beach.  She had gathered together about 25 people who expressed an interest in mediumship.

Jennifer has an extensive background in helping people in missing person cases. She’s helped with some high and low profile cases.  She reports what she sees, experiences, hears, senses as part of her pro bono work for families who have suffered these kinds of traumas, but one day she thought “wouldn’t it be great if I could get together a group of like minded people and see what kind of details we can all come up with?”

For those familiar with the history of this kind of research with the government, (“Men Who Stare At Goats”) there was some formal training in the 70’s with regard to “remote viewing.” Using mediums or psychics to try to pry into Soviet secrets.  Like any government project, the military was trying to use science to further the ability to “see” into what the Soviets were up to (as the Soviets had their own programs in the same field.)

The remote viewing program was abandoned, some papers were written; most point to the results being “slightly better” than flipping a coin, but still – a better percentage of “guessing” or seeing people objects and things that they were asked to look for.  Unfortunately what they were tasked to find were coordinates where Soviet agents would be vacationing in their dacha – and like many projects aimed at using people to assist in govt secrets, didn’t exactly pay off.

But in this case, Jennifer has already been tasked with helping to solve crimes, or find people – and she brought together a group of like minded folks, to see what the results would be.

The results, from my chair in the room, were astounding.  Strangers that have no formal training in mediumship, aren’t professional mediums but were people who have spiritual backgrounds, came together to see what they could come up with. And they came up with consistent results.

Jennifer presented three case studies – in one instance, a criminal already in prison for what he’d done, in the second case, a person who is currently missing, and in the third, a child who had died under mysterious circumstances.

In each case, the four groups came up with the exact same information – age range, looks, what the person liked to do, what their background was. In the case of the missing person, they had detailed maps, detailed sounds or visuals that were in line with what law enforcement had already discovered (yet had not been revealed) in the case of the person who had died, one of their parents stood in front of the group and detailed the many details of what these people had already know.  Names, dates, places… all right on the money.

The program is called “Impartial Witness” and as outlined, some people from silicon valley have assisted in coming up with how to use AI to help in these cases, there are former government officials involved from a variety of law enforcement backgrounds, and then, there’s these anonymous people who will be assisting in helping to find, discover, learn or solve any number of issues.

Almost like having a live think tank on the flipside.

I can imagine all of the possible applications – from corporations looking to solve a mystery (an airliner that has disappeared for example) to discovering why their corporate secrets are being stolen, and how, to parents who are in need of their help, or siblings trying to find their long lost parent. But at the moment, this group is assisting law enforcement on “cold cases” as well as missing person cases.

Of course it can’t or doesn’t always work. My research into this arena points out that “not everyone wants to be cured” (i.e., they signed up to learn from this lifetime and it’s not up to anyone to solve the problem before they experience it) “some people learn more from a tragedy than it being solved” (i.e., “You can learn more from one day of tragedy on planet Earth than you can from 500 years on some boring planet” (that’s a direct quote in “Flipside”) – so there may be any number of reasons why something isn’t solved or understood, even on a group level.

But for those who are looking for an edge, a leg up, a way to help solve real time problems, this is an excellent tool in the algorithmic bag.  If you have endless amounts of money to throw at an issue, and will leave no stone unturned to find the solution, it’s certainly an excellent way to help law enforcement that is open to working with them (and in those applications yet to be discovered.)

Yes, it could be reminiscent of Phillip K. Dick’s crime solving fantasy “Minority Report” which shows the problems occur when someone in a position of authority abuses the system – however, the people involved have thought out how to make sure there’s no security issues that can’t be addressed. The people who report are anonymized, vetted by Jennifer so that people with the right intent are involved, as well as ensuring that the law enforcement is not being asked questions, but are observing what the results are through multiple filters.

But I saw that this kind of think tank could also be tasked to help save the planet.

There’s no reason this kind of application can’t be tasked to helping the environment “What are the best ways to explore how we can change salt water to fresh water for pennies?” or “How can we solve the problem of fossil fuel energy issues?”

Whatever answers that come forth – it won’t matter whether it comes from someone’s subconscious, from a scientist no longer on the planet, or a group of people exploring the answers from the flipside – the solution will have the same result; helping humanity. There is no question that cannot be asked to the flipside, it’s just a matter of understanding and translating what those answers might be.

Stay tuned.

So flipside fans, Jennifer Shaffer and I can’t be stopped.

No one has tried to stop us, but I’m just saying. It’s continuing on.

As you may know, based on checking out “Backstage Pass to the Flipside” Jennifer and I have been interviewing people in our “classroom on the flipside.” We were #1 at audible for most of September. We invite people to come forward and then I ask them some basic questions.  I choose questions that are by their nature neutral, and then I research the concepts in detail.

Questions like “Who was there to greet you on the flipside? What do you miss? What do you regret? Who would you like to give a message to?”

Last week, I suggested a person for us to interview, but did not tell Jennifer who it was. Earlier in the morning, I used the technique mentioned in the books by “calling out the name” of the person we wanted to interview. Because I never met this fellow, nor did Jennifer – a few friends of mine have – I wasn’t sure how effective I would be in “calling him forward.”

(This is a rough sketch of what was said over the course of an hour interview, the transcript of which will be available in a future book “Backstage Pass to the Flipside” book three.)

I asked for 3 people to come forward to help us.  One was the father of someone I know, his son is a pal, and his father is on the flipside and has appeared in our class.  So I said his name aloud.  Then I asked for someone else who was in our class, who has appeared before, and who knew this fellow I was requesting.  And the third person I asked for someone famous enough to impress this person – because he would be likely willing to speak to him, even though he doesn’t know us.

Jennifer named them each, one at a time.  “So and so is here” – I said “Great, I asked for him.”  Then the next person and the third person. (I’ll name them all in the book, but it doesn’t matter at this point.  She got all three 100% correct.)

She couldn’t get the first name of this fellow, so I gave it to her.  When I said his name “Paul” she said “I know who you’re talking about, but I don’t know his name; the microsoft guy?”  “Yes” I said. (A note about our ability to confirm details – if you get a chance to view “Backstage Pass to the Flipside” I go over in detail how I am able to verify specific details.  Often the people we interview are friends of friends, so I’m able to ask their family “who was with him or her when they died?” and other details that I’ve heard from Jennifer.)

I knew little to nothing outside of wikipedia about Paul Gardner Allen.  (After the interview, I did research him, to verify some key details). What I don’t know about him could fill volumes. 

I did know that he created a brain science institute in Seattle, and he owned two professional teams; the Trailblazers and the Seahawks.  I knew that he donated 100 million to his brain science institute, because his mother Edna had Alzheimers.  I knew that his autobiography mentioned how Bill Gates had stabbed him in the back when he had cancer – and had no clue if they ever made up or not.

I asked “So who was there to greet you when you crossed over?” fully expecting it to be his dad Kenneth or his mom Edna.  He said (through Jennifer) “I’m seeing a football player.”  Startled (I thought owning the teams was a trifle, had no idea he was a football fanatic with his father until AFTER this session when I looked it up) I said “Is this a member of the Seahawks? Someone who died?”

She said “no.”  But he’s “someone who was there to thank him.”  She said “I think they met before, they may have been friends.”  She said “He’s African American – but he’s Polynesian.”  She said “I’m getting the number 5 – but also the number 2… that could be the number on his uniform, or it could be a date, like May 2nd.”

My brain scrambled for a moment, and then I said “Wait a second. Is this someone who suffered from that brain ailment who wants to thank him?”  Jennifer tapped her nose like she does when I’ve said something right on the money.

I said “I know about the Chicago Bear Dave Duerson, he was the first football player who killed himself and then asked for his brain to be sent to be studied.”  She said “I have the chills.”  It was definitely related to him.  I mentioned how Boston University, my alma mater was in the forefront of doing this kind of research, and was featured in the Will Smith film.

Jennifer said that this player was there to thank him – that his contribution to brain injury was helping many lives. She said that “Paul really cared about him, or cared about his players and felt guilty about the sport causing them to be being injured.”  She said “He even worked on designing a helmet to help.”

None of this information I’d heard before.  I looked it up – and it’s accurate.  There is a new helmet design from a company in Seattle that credits Paul’s influence, there is the problem of CTE that has been addressed by his group at the brain science institute.

It turns out that Junior Seau, the Polynesian African American killed himself the same way that Dave Duerson had a year after his death. (Junior died in 2012).  He shot himself in the chest and they donated his brain to Boston University where they confirmed he had CTE (brain issues from so many helmet hits.)  In fact over 95% of all football player brains examined have this same problem – this same issue. It also turns out that he did wear the #5 (55) and 5-2 is the exact date he died (May 2nd, 2012, he shot himself.)

refer to caption
Junior Seau. #55. Died on May 2nd 2012.

I did not know this information during the session, but learned it later. I knew that Dave Duerson, of my beloved Chicago Bears had killed himself for science – but had no idea that Junior had the exact same problem.  I brought the topic up again with Jennifer this week, asked if it was Junior Seau who stopped by and because I mentioned Dave Duerson, that’s why she got a confirmation? She said again “I’m getting the chills – which is the way I confirm things.”

So I said to Paul Allen “The kind of work that Jennifer and I are doing, interviewing people on the flipside in this manner, proving that consciousness still exists, and that we can gain new information using this method would be helpful to your brain science group.  He said “Email them.”  I said, “Why would they listen to me?” He said “Remind them that I told them to look into this, to look outside the box to find other fields to explore the answers.”  He said when they hear me quote him saying this – it will take some time – but they will remember him telling them to do just that.

He said he knew he was going to die after the first bout with cancer. That he knew he wasn’t going to survive it, and was “good at lying” to everyone to tell them that he would, or that he was cancer free. But that’s why he was in such a hurry to do the kind of philanthropic work he was doing.”

I asked about Bill Gates, if Paul was possibly still upset over the slight mentioned in his autobiography. He said “Not in the least.” He offered that he “knew instantly, a recognition of what the work was going to be for us, when he first met him. He said “but there was competition there, and it came to head…” I think he’s telling me that it was over a girl.” She said.

(I have no clue, haven’t read his or Bill’s books.) I asked if he had any advice for Bill; he said “Tell him to retire.” Jennifer said “I asked him if he wanted to say something like “you got this?” and he said; “No, he should quit. Tell him to not worry about the latest update.” (She said “whatever that means.”)

“He needs to have some fun” he told Jennifer. I asked about regrets and he said “No! I won. I died with the most toys.”

He told Jennifer the name of his yacht (the Octopus) correctly – she said “It’s a jellyfish… I’m seeing an octopus, but it can’t be as simple as that.”  I said “Actually it is.”

I asked who was with him when he crossed. He said that his last moments were spent with his sister (Jennifer asked if her name was “Tracey?” I said “Jody.” Again – I’m not trying to prove anything to anyone here – I’ve proven so many times that we have heard accurate and new information from the flipside, I try to be as accurate as I can when she hears something different.  If that makes the reader feel that I led her, or gave her information she couldn’t have gotten from on her own – that’s fine.  No need to read any more of this blog!  These are not the droids you’re looking for.)

He said that she was with him when he crossed over (or that she had left the room briefly) but he sent her love, and that she should “trust and get everything checked out because she’s fine, she’s healthy but doesn’t believe it so she worries about it.”  (I don’t know what that means, but I suspect she will.)

I asked what he was up to now. He said “learning to play the ukelele.” He said he was keeping an eye on all the things he cared about back here, but then he would play music with some of the people in class – namely Hendrix and Prince.  Jennifer correctly reported that he had built an institute for Hendrix (the museum in Seattle) and that Jimi thanked him for it.

I asked why he wasn’t playing a guitar like the others. He said “It takes time to learn how to make that mental construct. There are just four strings and simple chords.  It’s soft, elegant and easier to play.”  He said he had already been playing with another member of the class – Mr. Ukelele himself George Harrison (who speaks to us in “Backstage Pass to the Flipside”).

Again – not trying to convince anyone of anything. Just reporting what I’m filming.  He had a private message to a friend of mine that he knew, and I passed it along.  Not here to sell anyone anything.  If you get a message from a loved one, the best thing to do is pass it along – doesn’t mean they’re going to believe you, but at least you’ve done the thing they wanted.

If you combine it with all the other research I’ve done, the ten years of filming people under deep hypnosis, you’ll find these reports are in line with those. If you look at the research in “Flipside” “Its a Wonderful Afterlife” “Hacking the Afterlife” and “Backstage Pass” (links to the right of this page) you’ll come to the same conclusions.

NO ONE DIES. Their consciousness is accessible.  Doesn’t matter if they’ve reincarnated since (and most take a break for awhile) their mind is always accessible.  And they can answer complex questions about complex ideas – it’s just up to the person asking the question to know how to understand what they’re reporting.  There’s no hierarchy back there – doesn’t matter if you’re famous, infamous or obscure. Everyone is equal in terms of their role in the universe.

Some more flipside notes:

Later that day I stopped by a Tibetan store. It’s a shop in Santa Monica which sells the Nechung Monk CD that I produced for Kutenla the Oracle of Tibet. (The Nechung Oracle)  The CD is selling in the store.  I never ask how the sales are going – I suspect whoever needs to find the CD will find it – in person, or online – but I spoke to the manager.  He’s a devout Buddhist, and I always enjoy chatting with him.  We talked a bit about Buddhist philosophy with regard to children remembering “past lives.”

I reminded him of how when our son had said “whever you hear a bell in Tibetan music, it means peace comes into the world.”  When our son said that to me, I had no idea what bells meant in Tibetan music, and had asked this fellow. At the time he said “It means peace comes into the world.”

He asked about our son, who is now older and said “at the age of 8 their brains become polluted by grasping and desire, so their memories of a previous lifetime end.”

I said, “Well, science tells us that the skulls harden by age 8 – that until then they’re more pliable.  So it may be that they have better access to information that may come to them in etheric form, before the filters and limiters are in place. As if it’s harder to get the frequency through.”  We talked about meditation, and how meditating can help a person to open themselves up better to frequencies.  He said he never saw anything during a meditation, but sometimes in dreams.

I asked him to describe; One is that he’s walking down a street in Katmandu about 100 years ago. He has no idea why he’s there, or who is around him, but they look like people from 100 years ago. But he can see a regular street scene with people out walking around – he has no idea what kind of clothing he’s wearing, but felt as if he was a man in that lifetime.

In the other dream he was “flying.” He said it was thrilling – he just “lifted off” when he wanted to. (From “Backstage Pass to the Flipside” – most folks we talk to tell us the most amazing thing about being on the flipside is “they can fly.”)

I asked about the visual, and he said “its recurring. I’m in a forest, which at the base of the trees is open and empty. And then I lift off and I go up through the canopy which is thick. And then I’m over the trees and I fly to a pond. When I look down, I see electrical wires, so I’m afraid of running into them, so I come down.  But in the forest I feel calm, at ease, and unconditional love.” The other dream; “I’m in Nepal, near where the Buddha gave his lectures, and I am walking with others, but instead of following the crowd, I go up to the top of a mountain and look back over the clear parts of the forest where monasteries are.” He also described a profound sense of calm when looking down at these monasteries from above.

I pointed out that in many of the deep hypnosis cases I’ve filmed or researched, people talking about constructing a place of “healing” where the go to “pull their energy together” once they’ve crossed over.  Sometimes it’s inside, sometimes it’s outside – but covered in trees or waterways. Often people can embrace the trees, or walk in the water – but always they experience that sense of calm, and a feeling of unconditonal love.  He smiled.  “Taishe delek!” I said and wandered down the block.

In India

A few doors down, I stopped by a guitar store in Santa Monica and was playing some of their instruments and struck up a conversation with a worker there.  I had the impression I should ask him the question “who was the most famous person that has come in here?”  He said “Prince.  He comes in all the time.”  I asked if this worker, Mike had seen him there?  He asked two other workers.  They both said “No, but he comes in all the time.”  I had to ask – “Fellas, why are you speaking in present tense?”  None of them could answer that.  I said “You mean he used to come in all the time?” Yes.  He took over a particular room and the guy who carried his picks would purchase guitars for him.

I thought that was pretty funny. Prince had a guy whose gig it was to carry his picks.  Funny.  This guy then took a phone call in the midst of my telling him how Prince showed up for “Hacking the Afterlife” and “Backstage Pass to the Flipside.”  When he finished the call, he said “That’s funny.  The guy on the phone came in today to sell me a guitar, a Hohner that Prince used to own.” He whipped out his cell phone and showed me a picture of him, Mike, holding the guitar “that morning.”  Then he showed me a picture of Prince playing the same guitar.

What are the odds?

When you work with stories about the Flipside; pretty good odd something will come up that seems coincidentally, but feels like it’s more than that.
