Expedition Unknown – Search for Afterlife; Heaven and Hell – Review

Good old Josh Gates, one of our favorite shows.  We have been on many journeys with Josh and he and his team are some of the best.  He has done two of these episodes followed by two “after the search” episodes.

He started the first episode by sitting in Church but as we all know, that is not where to look.  So he went to meet a archaeologist  at the city of Hierapolis  where there is supposedly a gateway to hell.  As it turns out they found bubbles coming up in the pool once you go inside the cave.  Who or whatever went in side would die of what turns out to carbon dioxide poisoning, which the bubble brought to the surface.  Now we have to say at this point we thought Josh is going in the wrong direction because this has nothing to do with the afterlife other than death by breathing the carbon dioxide.  So we waited for the next subject.

This time he skipped past a bunch of different religions and finally settled on being in a choir the Mississippi Mas Choir which is Josh’s way of odd humor.   So he is in church singing away, in a Christian church.

After a few minutes of his antics he is off to New York City and meets a doctor at N.Y.U. Hospital where he investigates N.D.E. (Near Death Experiences).  We had one but were not in his interviews.  Most of the people were in a hospital when they had theirs.  N.Y.U actually investigates NDE’s with electronic devices in the operating room.  They have found that consciousness does not die when the body fies.  The testing goes on at N.Y.U.  Then he interviewed five NDE people that passed in various kinds of accidents.  All of these people said the same thing we did in our NDE post which was feeling wonderful and feeling of God where they were.  One of the people was told that he oldest sons coming death who was nine years old and was going to die soon – his eighteenth birthday.  She told him and he in fact did die on his eighteenth birthday from a car crash.  All five like us experiences the “tunnel” with spirits and feeling love and peace.

Then off to Hollywood to meet Chip Coffey a famous medium (Talks to dead people) and attend a reading in a cemetery.  He reads some people that attended and then called on Josh.  Josh was obviously nervous, but did allow Chip to continue.  A typical Josh usually does, the reading continued on the next episode of “After the search”.  Josh asked Chip how he does the reading, but of course its more like a voice is in his head.  (This can be learned and could be an ability you don’t know about).  When asked about the afterlife he said it’s a place to go and learn and a place shared by many people.

Chip had told Josh and Josh’s wife that their baby was going to be very late at birth, but when the contractions started go immediately to the hospital.   They did and the baby was born nine minutes after they arrived at the hospital.  Then Chip continued on with Josh’s reading from the prior episode.  He said to Josh “you had a death in your family recently.” And went on to say her name was Maddie, Josh’s Dad’s sister. He had a store that sold native American items and arrowhead seemed to be the subject.  She had given Josh an Arrowhead tomahawk! (He showed it).

Then Chip did a reading on one of Josh’s crew and said there is a female knowing on the door and it’s a spouse that died quickly.  He was married three months and she dies of a brain injury.  She is happy he went on with his life.

This weeks episode highlights are Josh traveling to India to experience the cremation at the Yangtze river, Josh being a participate of an exorcism and discussing the entire process, and Josh doing a hypnotic past life regression.  (We talked about our regression in a previous post but it was done with a guided meditation by a lady from England.  Her style was completely different also).

The above is only highlights of the episodes because they are chuck full of details.  If you follow us you know that anything that comes from an organized religion does not really mean much to us, but we do believe is the afterlife and we call it the “other-side” but both are the same.  We are looking forward to his coming episodes and we found this to be an excellent documentary on the subject.  Josh seems to always do a good job on anything he goes after.

Quick Review- “Mega Monsters – Yeti the new evidence” Total Bull Crap.  This guy visited every place all the other seekers have visited around the world and there was absolutely NOTHING new.  Waste of time!

We have nothing to report except that we thank everyone for stopping by.  One quickie, we did see a UFO the other night out our second story window.  Two read lights side-by-side and it went straight up from the ground to about 1,000 feet and stopped on a dime.  Did a 45 degree angle rise to about 1,500 and stopped.  The as it sped away to the south east we could see a green blinking light on the rear.  No it wasn’t an airplane.  If went from a dead stop to about 1,000 mph in a heart beat and it was completely silent.  We think over the next year this will become a standard event all over the country.

Peace, Love, and Light to all.

Belief System – Death (Physical)

There will be a day when we will be done with our path and our physical body will come to and end.  We don’t know when or how, but because we have experienced a NDE (Near Death Experience) we do know what the other side is like.  We know that our soul will go to the other side and we wish to have our physical body cremated, unless we die in a fire, then it will automatically be cremated.  We also will make sure that our thoughts and last thought will be of God and a peaceful passing.  We have had some close calls throughout our life and each time something always saved us at the last minute.

We believe that it was the work of an earth angel a few times.  When we were 10 years old and stuck in quicksand with a friend, a man came out of nowhere to pull us out.  We were in a place that was desolate and even my friend said he did not see the guy, but all of a sudden, this man pulled us out at the last minute.  We barely had time to thank him and he said he had to go and left.

Then there was the time we were riding in my friends 1964 Corvette and I was sitting in the middle and one friend was driving and one friend was in the passenger seat.  Yes, a Corvette is only a two seat car, but since we were in our late teens and invincible, the middle arm rest seemed fine as a seat.  So we were going down I-94 East Bound at around 120 MPH in the left lane passing a bunch of semi-trucks when one of the trucks ahead decided to pull out into the left lane where we were.  The driver could only do one thing to avoid a collision and that was to turn left and go into the middle grassy separation.  We were throwing grass all over and slowly slowing down when we all saw one of those Police “Turn around” roads coming up soon.  Lucky the “road” had dirt on both sides almost like a ramp.  When we hit it we immediately launched to the right and landed in the left had lane of I-94 like nothing happened.  We got off at the next exit and pulled in to the first parking lot and came to a stop.  On the passenger side there is a horizontal bar over the glove box called a “suicide bar” and we had to pry the hands of the passenger off the bar.  Nobody wet their pants but it made a great story to tell our friends.

There was one time when we had just soloed when I was taking flying lessons and my instructor had me doing touch and goes for practice.  A touch and go is a landing and then without stopping, giving the plane full throttle and taking off again.  It happened to be at Gary Airport and on a right turn out it took me over Lake Michigan for my downwind that day.  Then the tower called me and had me execute a 360 degree turn because another airplane was coming into my air space without permission.  At the time we were about 2,000 feet over the lake and the request shook me up, but we started the 360 to the left and found we were having trouble maintaining my elevation.  We were going down so we gave the plane more gas, but it didn’t help.  We admit we started to panic when we were at about 1,000 feet above the water when all of a sudden we felt at peace, calm, and our mind cleared.  We immediately saw that we had left our flaps down and we knew that we needed to put them up, but we had to do it slowly to prevent a stall.  When we stated bringing the flaps up we started gaining altitude so we cut down on our speed and got the plane under control.  We turned on “base” and then “final” and landed.  I was shaking and got to the terminal as fast as possible.  Just as we stopped our instructor ran up and asked if we were ok?  He heard the tower ask us to do the 360 and knew that we had not covered this yet in out lessons so he ran out to the tower to view or progress.  He said that when he saw us go lower than the building between the tower and the lake we were having an issue and tried to call us on the radio but got static.  The he saw us rise and knew were ok.  I told him it scared the crap out of me and it cured me from keeping my flaps down to long on a touch and go.  We both laughed and we drank about four Pepsi’s down in five minutes.  To this day we love to fly.

We used to fly commercial often and have been on many “Emergency” Landings, but we always had confidence that the pilots we well trained and we knew they were well trained.  Usually the person sitting next to us got very nervous, but we would always assure them we were in good hands.  This always seemed to calm them down.  Every once is awhile before take off the person sitting next to us would ask us to hold there hand because this was the first time they where flying and they were afraid.  We always said yes, of course.  They were mostly ladies because the guys we noticed were chugging down beer during preflight.

Of course there are times we all come close to death but we don’t know it.   So we go on with our great lives and know that God is always watching out for us.  We look at death as the completion of our path in this life and we know that we can take what we learned with us to the next life (See post on reincarnation – May 20).  Recently we were shook up by the suicide of Anthony Bourdain, someone we followed for many years.  In our teaching we have learned that a person who commits suicide will experience the same exact situation as when they passed. Suicide is an issue in the US and there are many organizations that have suicide help lines.  The national Suicide Help line available 24/7 is 1-800-273-8255.  Please call, you are NOT alone and we care about you.

We have nothing else to report at this time and we thank all of the folks following our posts.  We hope to make a better life for all and we certainly willing to share with everyone.  Just know that you are not alone and that we all care for you always and in all ways.

Namaste

Near Death Experience (NDE)

Recently a friend of mine was telling me about a dream he had.  The dream was one of those “unworldly, spiritual-like” dreams where complete peace is the result.

After listening and thinking about how these experiences come about, I was reminded of a Near Death Experience (NDE) that I experienced many years ago.  In fact, I had forgotten about it until now and hadn’t told many people about it until now.   I was in my teens at the time and when it was all over I thought I was lucky to have survived the incident along with the other kids involved.  More details on this below.

When my friend told me about the dream I did some research and found that many others have experienced NDEs. Most of these experiences, it seems, involved people who were in traumatic situations such as major surgeries where they find themselves hovering over the table in the operating room watching the operation take place.  Some involved auto accidents where they found themselves hovering over the scene, watching themselves and the others lying about.

Mine wasn’t like any of those and here is a quick description of the circumstances leading up to my NDE, the experience itself, and the outcome.

The time was approximately 2:30 AM CST and the place was Freeman Lake in Monticello Indiana.  I had just turned nineteen and I was one of twelve passengers in an overloaded boat that flipped over early that summer morning.  I was sitting in the front seat and there was one person to my left and four others to my right with the driver at the far right.  When the boat began to flip over I could feel the rear sink down and it began to roll to the right.  The last thing I remember is feeling water on my ankles.

The next thing I remember is being in total blackness with a very small light off in the distance in front of me.  I was moving toward the light and as I moved the area around me started to lighten to gray and grow brighter as I moved forward.  I sensed a wonderful peacefulness and calm.  I can only describe it a pure bliss.  Then all of a sudden I stopped moving and voice said, “We are sending you back.  You have many things you need to complete in your lifetime before you come back here.”  I remember thinking “Please don’t send me back I want to stay!”  I then began moving backward very fast.  All of a sudden I was back in the total darkness.

Still in a peaceful state of mind I noticed that my arms were extended above me.  When I pulled them down I rose up and broke the surface of the water I was in and found myself on the side of the overturned boat where I had started.  There were people all around the boat clinging to it.  Everyone seemed to be talking loudly at once and then finally the driver of the boat was on top of the hull and he yelled “Every one shut up and let’s count off!”  We did and two people were missing.  The driver promptly dove in to the water and retrieved the two people who were still under the boat and brought them to the surface.  He placed them on the hull out of the water and then because he knew I could not swim, pulled me up on the hull.  Other boats that were in the immediate area began pulling up and taking survivors aboard and eventually back to land.

Thankfully all twelve passengers survived the accident.  We all discussed the accident afterwards and I really don’t remember thinking about the NDE until about a week later and then because I was so thankful that everyone survived, it really did not mean that much to me at the time.

As I recalled it in days to follow, it seemed that NOTHING seemed to matter as much as prior to the experience.  The peacefulness stayed with me for quite a while and everything seemed to be in perfect place…no thoughts disturbed me.  Soon, the euphoria slowly slipped away and I was back to “normal,” with everyday concerns, schedules and so on.

I must say, I didn’t know what to make of it all since these occurrences were not widely spoken of at that time, but I knew that there was work for me to do and I heeded this message throughout my life.

I’m very interested in any comments and/or experiences you’d like to pass along.

I’ll surely enjoy reading anything you have to share.  If you would like, I can post your experience(s) in a separate blog on this subject.  Let me know.

I have nothing else to report at this time and want to say thank you folks out there in cyberland for taking the time to stop by to support our site.

Sweet dreams.
