Spirit Communications & the Afterlife

Show Archive
Date: Monday - January 9, 2012
Host: George Noory
Guests: James Van Praagh, Nora Gedgaudas

For the past 25 years James Van Praagh has used his powerful paranormal experiences to help people bridge the gap between the Earth plane and other worlds. He discussed his explorations into the afterlife, and his communications with spirits of the deceased. Based on his communications, he's found certain commonalities when people crossover-- there's no pain when a spirit leaves the body, they are aware of being outside the body, and are greeted by loved ones who have already passed over. The deceased appear solid, but are vibrating in a higher frequency dimension, and often choose to represent themselves at a younger age than when they died, he continued.

When spirits first pass over they enter the astral world, where they encounter lakes, gardens, and houses, said Van Praagh, adding that colors are more vivid, there's no nighttime, and everything a person could want is there. However, this realm is merely a way station, and eventually spirits move on to a higher level, he explained. Many of the communications he's received from spirits have to do with love and fear, and regrets over choices they made while alive. "I should have told my family I loved them; I shouldn't have done that; I should have believed in myself more," are typical of spirits' laments.

He also addressed why the scientific community continues to dismiss evidence for life after death. Science has been unable to measure phenomena outside the physical realm, yet quantum physics is getting closer to quantifying consciousness and what was previously unseen, and Van Praagh believes scientific views are beginning to change. To communicate with the deceased, he suggested developing a meditation practice, which can make the mind more receptive, and also being open to receiving messages in the dream state.

Reducing Anxiety

First hour guest, nutritional therapist Nora Gedgaudas talked about the increasing problem of anxiety in society, and what she termed as over-arousal disorders such as panic attacks, ADHD, and PTSD. To alleviate these disorders, she suggested neurofeedback, a form of brain training/exercise that helps people manage their stress. She also highlighted the importance of diet, and proper breathing (through the diaphragm) as stress reducers.
