The Continuity of Consciousness After Death

About the show

Interweaving his profound personal experience and compelling scientific evidence, Mark Ireland presented a deep dive into psychic-medium phenomena, spirit visitations, afterlife communication, reincarnation, synchronicity, and near-death experiences, pointing to the survival of consciousness after bodily death. He joined guest host Richard Syrett (Twitter) to discuss detailed accounts of scientific experiments conducted to obtain evidence for the continuity of consciousness, including his own test involving a secret message left behind by his deceased sister. That test, based on a test devised by Harry Houdini, involved a message that she would communicate after she passed. But to eliminate any chance of someone learning what that message was, and any claims of deceit, he had her write her secret message on a slip of paper that was then sealed in an envelope. He explained that the plan was to wait for a later time, and then reach out to some of the mediums they knew. Ireland directed readers to his book for full details, but noted that certain phrases that came through resonated with him. One was, “I got my teeth back,” because his sister had lost some teeth in life. Another was related to a favorite childhood television show – Little House on the Prairie.

Ireland also discussed his father, the late psychic medium Dr. Richard Ireland, who was an advisor to actors, politicians, and other influential individuals. He explained how, while dealing with the loss of his youngest son, he received a message from a family friend who brought him an unpublished manuscript his father had written that the friend had held for 12 years until he “felt like (he was) supposed to” pass it on. Two weeks later, while meeting with another medium to discuss the loss of his son, she brought up his father’s book, noting that she received a message that “he’s handing (the book) to you to take forward.” During the same session he received a message from his son congratulating his parents on their anniversary. Later, he said, he and his wife would receive other messages related to his son’s bass guitar that reinforced their belief that his consciousness survived his death.


In the second half of the show callers on open lines discussed their own experiences with communication beyond the grave – including a caller who learned on his first date with his future wife they had been lovers in a past life who died when their UFO was struck by a meteor – conspiracies related to Marilyn Monroe and the Kennedy Brothers, dream interpretation, Masonic symbolism, and even a blackberry yogurt that psychokinetically moved off the shelf toward a searching shopper.
