Near Death Experience from IANDS

Sharing this amazing account of a near death experience from IANDS.ORG

See the experience below; my comments:

"Love is the engine of the universe." 

Don't take my word for it, although I have been shouting it for some time, here is another eyewitness report from the flipside. Because he didn't meet or see avatars doesn't mean they don't exist; each experience is unique yet not unique. Thousands have reported the same kind of NDE, many have experienced this via deep hypnosis. 

Point is NOW YOU KNOW. How does knowing change your stress level? Change your fury, anger, resentment, fear? What is love anyway? Indefinable, ineffable, an experience we only know when we experience it. 

No pulpit, no song, no bumper sticker or book can define it. But if you can give it you can experience it. "Open your heart to everyone and all things." What have we got to lose?

"From my first NDE, I only remember vague images and concepts and some vivid images. However, my second one, I remember entirely, and once I was in it, I remembered that what I was experiencing was something I had experienced before, and that my second NDE had a lot of the same features as the first.

First of all, I definitely was aware that I had left my body, but when I glimpsed my ethereal body, I noticed the same physical features I was used to. I later learned that it was akin to a term used in the first Matrix movie: Residual self image. I expected to see the body I was used to, and so I did, to make me more comfortable.

Second, I felt like I was lifted away, though I never experienced a bright light or tunnel, or saw any dead relatives. To that point, I had not lost any relatives in my lifetime--the first familial death I experienced was my paternal grandfather in 1989. The first death I experienced of any kind was my best friend, who was killed by a drunk driver when I was 15 and she was 14.

Third, I experienced being in a place of some sort. Not a room, because it didn't feel closed-in or limited, but definitely a sensation of a physical place. I felt, rather than saw, beings around me, which comforted me and projected peaceful thoughts into my mind. In this realm, talking without speaking seemed perfectly natural to me, as if I'd always done it but was just now remembering how.

I experienced what some have termed a 'life review.' It wasn't like a movie or something, where I was outside of it. It was completely interactive and immersive. I got to see good and bad things I had done. I say good and bad, despite the fact that there was absolutely NO JUDGMENT there. It was more like these beings wanted to show me the path in life that I had chosen, and based on what I wanted to be, how my actions or words had either helped me along that path or hindered me. This review was not from my perspective, but rather from the perspective of those my words or actions had affected. I experienced how I made others feel, or think about me, as if I were them.

Let me stress here that there was none of the Heaven-or-Hell experience for me. No Jesus, or angels, or choirs in clouds. No judgment, no punishment, no fear. Also, no religious overtones at all. This, I will explain later.

I felt the presence of other souls nearby, those who--like me--had recently died and found themselves in this new reality. I know we conversed, but I couldn't tell you the substance of those conversations. In this place, conversation happened spontaneously and without verbalization. And since everything happened with the speed of thought, and everything seemed to work faster, it's difficult to put every concept into words, because it's like trying to capture a cloud with your hands.

Several of us went together on a tour of sorts. We flew at speeds beyond imagining through space and the universe. We were unbound by the laws of Physics or any limitation. If we thought about something, we were there, instantly. There was no passage of time that I could sense. This journey through space was, in a word, freeing. I felt exhilaration, excitement, wonder, awe, like a kid who just got to go to all of his favorite places in the world all at once. I never wanted it to end.

Colors were so much more vivid, blending together like Van Gogh's Starry Night painting. And mixed with the colors were sounds and music. Every star we passed had a specific frequency or vibration--the brighter the star, the higher the tone, and conversely, the darker the star the lower the tone. Globular clusters and groupings of young stars were like a stellar chorus. It was the most incredible thing I have ever experienced, bar none.

I felt connection to everything, all at once. There was no sense of separation, no division between here and there, between me and other beings. My awe was their awe, and their awe was mine.

Unfortunately, the journey came to an end. I was by myself again, but felt the comfort and overwhelming love of others all around me. Love was what everything was made of, came from, and returned to. All-encompassing, unconditional love. It enveloped me like a warm blanket on a chilly day, and I just wanted to stay inside that love for the rest of eternity.

While there were many voices speaking to me throughout this experience, there was one that seemed to stand out from the rest. I want to say it was a male voice, although there wasn't sex here, any more than race or religion or any other distinguishing characteristics. But it 'felt' male to me, if that makes any sense. This voice told me that I had to go back. Upon hearing that, I felt cold and alone. The other voices tried to comfort me more, while still backing up this central voice. They told me that I would remember this experience, and that just recalling it would bring it all back to me. They also stressed to me that one day, my day would come, and that it would be no more than the blink of an eye there.

I didn't want to leave, but the more I tried to stay, the 'heavier' I felt, like I was under water and being dragged down by an anchor. I could sense my body, somewhere else, but it felt like an alien to me. I couldn't imagine ever going back to being so limited again.

The next thing I knew, I was waking up in the emergency room. I felt pain from my head injury, and from falling when I went unconscious, but it was weird to me. I felt the pain, but in a disconnected sort of way, like it was happening to someone else, but I was feeling it with them. I was disoriented and confused, and nothing felt real to me. I didn't respond to the doctor at first, because I felt torn between what I had just experienced and this physical realm."


Reviews are in.... "the afterlife consultant"

After spending a couple of hours with a fellow who had an unusual event happen to him (he heard a voice tell him that he "needed to figure out how to communicate to his children when he is dead") - he sought out some information on what that sentence might mean.

He eventually came upon my books "Flipside" - "It's a Wonderful Afterlife" "Hacking the Afterlife" and reached out to me about doing a session where I could chat with him about that experience.

As I always do - I pointed out that if he wanted to access previous lifetimes and the journey between lives, a Newton Institute trained hypnotherapist (like Scott De Tamble) is the best way to go or if he wanted to speak "directly" to someone on the flipside he might seek out a medium (like Jennifer Shaffer).  But if he wanted something in between, or a way to discuss these things while fully conscious, I've had some success doing that.

We met at my local coffee shop and away we went.

He not only found out what that particular sentence meant, but afterwards, wrote this "review."  

Thanks Terry F from Santa Monica!

"With his many successful books, I always thought Rich Martini was a great storyteller. 

But during an impromptu session sitting at a simple coffeeshop table, I discovered Rich is extremely talented at asking questions. 

His warm and casual demeanor makes him an instant friend, and his skillfully sequenced questions flow naturally. So much so that after a few warm up questions where I thought only my imagination was at play, Rich lead me to a sort of focused gaze where images were coming at me clearly and rapidly. 

Dates were appearing in my mind when Rich asked for them, places, names, clothes, key events. 

I ended up describing people and outfits I was not aware of, but that I could verify with an easy Google search after the session. 

All of a sudden, I was part of chapter of American history that I had never heard of but that was documented. 

Rich’s best talent is actually not storyteller or questions asker. He is the best listener. 

After this session, Rich wrote a recap that contained many more details than I could remember, and I was able to illustrate the story with the images I found on Google that I had “seen” during our session. 

If you are open minded, curious, or simply looking for answers, a session with Rich is like a comfortable walk in the park where you are in touch with the world while daydreaming about your past lives. Highly recommend!"

If you're interested in booking a session with yours truly - either by telephone, skype, or in person, please send an email to MartiniConsulting (at) Gmail

I'll get back to you asap and we'll go from there!


The Afterlife Consultant - Rich Martini

At the insistence of my colleague and pal Jennifer Shaffer, I'm announcing (trumpets please) that I am starting consultations "about the flipside."

If you've heard me speak on the topic at "Coast to Coast AM" or on "Beyond Belief" you know that George Noory calls me "The Afterlife Expert."

I can't do what Jennifer Shaffer does as a medium - speak directly to folks on the flipside, and I can't do what Scott De Tamble does - spend four to six hours speaking directly to your guides on the other side while you're under deep hypnosis - but I can do something that touches on aspects of both.

And that is "talk to you and your guides about the afterlife."

I know that sounds odd. But in my experience, people are attracted to this field not because they're "just curious" - but because either someone on the flipside needs to speak with them, or one of their guides wants them to access this information.

And I do so without hypnosis of any kind.  In fact, it's often over coffee, in my favorite coffee shop.  So no one is hypnotized during these sessions, however, they all say that they "feel as if they've been hypnotized" because they see, sense or experience things they've never experienced before.

Here are a few examples that I've filmed:

1. Santa Barbara
2. Dr. Drew 
3. Live on the Radio

I always insist - to the point of being annoying - that anyone who seriously wants to examine or put themselves deeply into this research should seek out a trained hypnotherapist who does this kind of work.  I recommend finding a hypnotherapist who can take them further and much deeper than I ever have the patience to do so - and in that case, I recommend hypnotherapist trained by the Newton Institute. I do so because I've filmed dozens of sessions from folks who were trained by them.
With Jennifer Shaffer and Scott De Tamble

In Los Angeles, I often work with Scott De Tamble, who is an expert in this field. He has done hundreds of between life sessions, and I've filmed a few dozen of them.

When a person wants to have direct contact with a loved one on the flipside, I recommend reaching out to Jennifer Shaffer.  I've worked with Jennifer, she works with law enforcement and has done over 3000 cases already.

I've been on "Coast to Coast AM" as the "Afterlife Expert."  So if I'm expert at anything, it's at asking questions that elicit answers we don't think we're aware of.

So if you're in search of understanding the architecture of the afterlife, I can help you do that, as well as to help you access certain elements of that journey from dreams or other events.  If you've had a near death experience, or some other consciousness altered event, I can help you access the event on a deeper more profound level than your memory can.  

I've done this with a number of individuals live on stage (see above links) and recently I did so with a fellow who reached out to me here in Santa Monica.

This man had a dream one night where a voice said to him "You need to learn how to speak to your children after you're dead." 

The sentence startled him, had no idea who said it or why. He began to research the topic and found me living in the same town. He contacted me after reading a few books on the topic.

He was startled by the sentence.  It wasn't a topic he was researching, it wasn't something he was focused on, and needless to say, the sentence, as clear as it was, disturbed him.  Who said it?  Why did they say it? Was it a warning of some kind?

We met for coffee and discussed it.  He told me about his life growing up, the journeys he had been on, and nothing from what he described seemed to prompt this kind of message.  I broke it down into three pieces for him; 1. The sentence was said at a time when he wasn't stressed.  If he had been, had a health issue or some other stressful event, he would have associated it with that problem.  But since it was not, he would have no associations to attach to it.  2. It mentioned his children, which made it a more heartfelt message - if he had heard "you need to learn to speak to people on the other side when you're dead" it might have been dismissed as a generic "message."  But since his children were attached to it, it gave import.  3.  The message, for good or bad, had caused him to find me so I could walk him through it.

Then we began to talk about who the person was who might have sent the message.  He said he did not know who the voice was - but I asked him to "open himself up to the possibility that he might know who that was" and to "allow an image of that person to come to mind."  (Again, no hypnosis, just coffee.) At some point, he glanced over my shoulder and began to describe someone he saw in his mind's eye. A friend. Not from this life, but from previous lifetimes. 

We examined those lifetimes.  He remembered being a soldier with this fellow back in the 1300's in France, where they were comrades that helped people in the countryside to fight against other marauding people.  Like a mercenary, but the word "musketeer" came to mind.  He had a name and a place for these activities, and I was able to research and find them to be accurate.

We walked through another lifetime memory, that of him and this fellow fighting alongside soldiers in "red coats" against soldiers in "blue coats."  They were fighting for survival mostly, but in this case when asked to say his name back then, he spelled it as Pawnee. 

This fellow is not from the U.S. so he was not aware of the British soldiers paying the Pawnee to fight alongside of them against the Americans during the revolutionary and War of 1812.  He later looked up the outfits that he had seen in his mind's eye, and found accurate descriptions of what he saw.

Pawnee as described by this man who had never heard of the tribe.
But it's not enough to ask about previous lifetimes - more important is "What did these lives have in common?"  Or "how do these lives relate to your overall journey or theme of your life?"  He examined that as well, and at some point I walked him into visit his council.  

It was there that he met some of the guides that have been overseeing all of his lifetimes, and I asked the members of his council detailed questions about their own path and journey.

We also spoke to an "entity" that appeared that incarnates here on the planet as a tree. We asked her questions about that journey and when asked about opinion of humans this feminine entity said "She feels sad." I asked "Why?" She said "Because humans have lost their ability to communicate with trees. Thousands of years ago they had the ability. But they have lost it. Not many humans can communicate with us."

I didn't invent this conversation. The man I was speaking with, fully conscious, had never heard of anyone "communicating with a tree."  But there, over coffee, we had this unusual conversation (from the man's subconscious answering my questions, like "Can we talk to this entity? Is it male or female, neither or both?") that allowed us to get an answer to a question that neither of us had ever thought to ask, or ever thought could be answered. 

Trees are sad on our behalf. At least this one was.

All of this took about two hours over coffee at my favorite spot.

Jennifer insists that people will want to "sign up" to do something like this with me on a regular basis. We'll see.

with Jennifer Shaffer and George Noory

So I'm offering this service to anyone who might be in Santa Monica who wants to reach out and talk about the flipside. I can so via phone, skype or in person.  

If you'd like to schedule a consultation, send an email to me at MartiniConsultants (at) gmail - and we can figure it out from there.  Thanks for tuning in!


Back to #1 at audible in its genre - Backstage Pass to the Flipside: Talking to the Afterlife with Jennifer Shaffer

Backstage Pass to the Flipside: Talking to the Afterlife with Jennifer Shaffer is again #1 in its genre at Audible.

Thanks to all the folks who are checking out this book.

It's a mind bending journey into the Flipside.

What if it was possible to speak to, interview, get new information from folks no longer on the planet?  How would that change our view of the planet?

Over the past three years, Jennifer and I have been doing just that - speaking to people no longer on the planet, hearing from THEIR POINT OF VIEW and asking them questions about how that works.

"Who was there to greet you when you crossed over?"  "How did you find us to be able to speak to us about your experience?"  "What do we look like to you?"  "If someone back on the planet wants to speak with you, how do they go about doing that?"

We asked and got answers.  And in many cases, I was able to demonstrate (from their children or loved ones) that what they had to say about them was accurate - that their advice from the Flipside was heard and was a way to realize their loved ones are not gone. Just not here.

There are two books in the series - book one and two - and in these books we talk to a number of folks that I knew (Bill Paxton, Harry Dean Stanton, Roger Ebert, Sydney Pollack, Robin Williams) and then there are people that Jennifer knew or met, as well as the people that Luana Anders (our guide on the flipside) who knew or met (Brando, Belushi, George Harrison and others).

If you'd like a freewheeling fun adventure on the flipside, courtesty of the amazing Jennifer Shaffer, check it out.

A moment with 11:11 and backstage passes to the flipside

I was in a meeting yesterday and was discussing the concept of 11:11. (Not the analog version, but the digital version. Analog version wouldn't mean much to anyone.)

How in a dream, my departed friend Luana had appeared to my wife and was asked "How can you be here? You passed away 20 years ago." 

To which Luana replied "think of 11:11. We meet at the decimals." Which I took to mean that each 11 represents a hallway, people on the flipside need to adjust or slow their frequency to talk to us; we need to adjust (open or speed up) our frequency to talk to them or "meet." 

I had just left a meeting upstairs in the office, and descended to a cafe. Moments after this discussion the waitress at the cafe said "it's 11:11" to me. I said "Why did you say that?" She said "I dont know. Sometimes I feel an urge to comment on things, it comes from a higher place." 

Stay open to the odd coincidence as it may not be.

There's a chapter in "Backstage Pass to the Flipside" about 11:11.

People recalling the "Flipside" under hypnosis as mentioned by Collective Evolution

Thanks for the shout out at the end of this article. 

"Flipside: A Journey into the Afterlife" is available on Amazon prime. Dr. Helen Wambach had the same results a decade earlier just to point out there's a body of research involved. I've filmed 45 sessions to date, various hypnotherapists, different people from all walks of life... all had the same consistent results. Not a theory, belief or opinion; just reporting what they say.

"Souls Recall Their ‘Life’ Between Lives During Regression Hypnosis, The Similarities Are Astounding"

August 22, 2018 By Alanna Ketler
CE Staff Writer  4.1K shares

  • The Facts:Over 7000 people/souls share their experience, through regression hypnosis, as to what happened after they died and before they reincarnated.

  • Reflect On:What are the implications of such research? If we reincarnate, how does that change your view of who you truly are? What is the purpose of life? How might this change how you approach this particular life?

Certified Master Hypnotherapist Michael Newton developed a technique to regress his clients back in time to recall memories from their past lives. During this process he stumbled upon a discovery of enormous proportions. He was able to bring the souls back to the place where they go before their next life — a life between lives. Out of 7,000 regressions, a large majority had eerily similar recollections of a place that many of them called “home.”

One of the most fascinating aspects of Newton’s work was that it didn’t matter who he was working with or what their previously held beliefs were in regards to the concept of “a soul” or reincarnation–in fact, many didn’t believe in these concepts at all. After coming out of a session, many of these people were changed forever. They were able to recount some of their past lives and feel and clearly see the relationship those previous lives had to their current life.

The Life Between Lives

In the world of hypnotherapy, past-life regression is almost common, but what’s unique about Newton’s work is his ability to get his subjects to recall memories from being in the womb, and then from before that point as well, to the place between each life. This was a place where, often, all of the soul family was waiting and welcoming with open arms. Many of the subjects were often surprised to see who was there as some of these people had provided a challenging experience for them in their previous lives.

According to Newton, the hypnotic responses from his subjects in regards to the afterlife provided credible information because of the consistency in their reports. Often the subjects would even use the same words and graphic depictions of where they were and what they were seeing. 

Newton had no reason to feel that anyone had a motive to fake their stories, and treated each case as if he was hearing the information for the first time. In other words, he was not suggesting words or ideas to them, but rather giving them the freedom to express these lives on their own. The similarities between the subjects was quite astounding. Some of these similarities included,

  • People’s memories of the initial activities of the soul just after final death on earth parallel the recollections of people returning from a near-death experience (NDE).

  • Souls are generally anxious to move away from the earth after death, and in many cases may stay a few days for their funeral.

  • Most souls initially pass through a tunnel towards the light of heaven.

  • The appearances of physical structures or other familiarities from Earth on the entry of the soul into heaven are intended to ease their transition.

  • Souls have the capability of projecting former life forms in communication with other souls.

  • Immediately after their death on earth, souls are met initially in heaven by their spirit guides or someone with whom they were close in their previous life. 

  • They meet others that were important to them previously.

  • Spirit guides continue their protective role in heaven.

  • Communication in heaven is done through telepathy.

  • A private form of consciousness between spirits exists through touch.

  • Ghosts are spirits who have chosen to remain within the earth plane, generally with a high degree of discontent. They can be dealt with by various means, such as exorcism, to get them to stop interfering with human beings.

  • Souls who were unable to turn aside a human impulse to harm others will go into seclusion upon entering the spirit world and remain for quite a while. The following reincarnation may be as a victim in a karmic cycle of justice.

  • An arriving soul can enter a place of healing as part of the restoration of the soul after a lifetime on earth.

  • A life review is conducted, first with spirit guides and later with a Council of Elders.

  • Souls travel to their initial destination in heaven through a large staging area.

  • Souls proceed to their cluster, consisting of small groups of soul energy that appear like a cluster of transparent bubbles or translucent bulbs. They contain entities who often shared past lives with the arriving spirit.

  • Group placement is determined by soul level.
  • Secondary groups have some contact with a primary group.

  • Opportunity for socialization and travel exist for souls living in their group.

  • Once a soul group is formed no new members are added.

  • Souls are grouped with others of similar characteristics.

  • At higher levels of soul evolution more independence takes place from group activities.

  • Spirit lights demonstrate color that correlates with a soul’s state of spiritual evolution.

  • The spirit world resembles one great schoolhouse with a multitude of classrooms under the direction of teacher-souls who monitor progress.

  • All souls have a personal guide who may be with them for thousands of years and many lives.

  • Junior guides are often assigned as well, later in the development of a soul.

  • Guides can appear as humans as well as spirits.

  • Most souls in the world today are in an early stage of development.

  • Spirits can experience two lives on earth at the same time.

  • A dormant part of our soul remains in heaven during incarnations.

  • Souls learn the techniques of the creation of physical items by thought, starting with simple assignments.

  • Souls incarnate on worlds other than the Earth.

  • The evolution of souls can continue way beyond the level where incarnation takes place.

  • Souls are reincarnating more frequently in recent centuries, and today would have roughly two lives during the past century.

  • Souls are not required to reincarnate but considerable pressure is brought to bear by spirit guides when the time is considered right.

  • Souls go to a place of life selection in order to examine alternative lives to lead.

  • There is a tendency for spirits to reincarnate in the same geographical area they were in during past lives.

  • The effort required to overcome a physical disability accelerates spiritual evolution.

  • Souls learn prior to a new incarnation to recognize future earthly signs from other souls they may encounter on earth with whom they have been close in the spirit world.

  • Souls leave heaven to enter the body of an infant through a tunnel.

  • The physical shock of birth is greater than that of death.

  • Souls can arrive in the infant’s body anytime before, during or slightly after the moment of birth.

Again, not only is this level of similarity and detail fascinating, but many of the thousands of people who were put under this hypnosis had no previous belief of reincarnation, the soul, or source consciousness. Their experiences here changed their minds.

In one instance a woman who had always faced challenges with her father in her current life saw that his soul had actually inhabited the body of the man who was the one who killed her in a past life. She was able to see how the members of the soul family aren’t always who you might expect. Some people who have caused us the most grief may have been doing so for our soul’s best interest, in order to help us grow.

For some of us, this work may resonate on a deep level. I know for myself while watching a documentary on this subject called, Flipside: A Journey Into The Afterlife,  and hearing the people recount their previous lives or the place that was often described as “home,” no part of me doubted anything they were saying for even a second. 

This information resonated to the very core of my being and just happens to go along quite nicely with my previously held beliefs in terms of reincarnation and the afterlife. Of course, we can never know for sure, but the topic of past lives and life after death is truly fascinating and can be fun to explore. 

I highly recommend the book on this subject, Journey Of Souls: Case Studies Of Life Between Lives by Michael Newton himself. It goes into much more depth and provides transcripts of actual sessions with the hypnotized subjects."

Excerpted from:

Thanks Alanna for the shout out.
You can find Michael Newton's books here:

Also, Dr. Helen Wambach had the same results with 2000 cases about a decade prior to Michael's work.  You can find her works here:

I've filmed 45 people under deep hypnosis with various Newton Institute trained hypnotherapists - (Scott De Tamble at, Paul Aurand, Jimmy Quast etc.) I transcribe those sessions and include them in my books:

"Flipside: A Tourist's Guide on how to Navigate the Afterlife" is the book companion to the film, includes transcripts from the film.

"It's a Wonderful Afterlife" books one and 2 include interviews with scientists talking about consciousness and people who've experienced near death events that are similar to the accounts of people under deep hypnosis.

"Hacking the Afterlife" examines speaking to people on the flipside with the help of mediums.

"Backstage Pass to the Flipside: Talking to the Afterlife with Jennifer Shaffer" books one and two are my interviews with Jennifer ( a medium who works with law enforcement agencies on missing person cases.  Over 3 years, Jennifer and I spoke to "friends and loved ones" and a number of strangers "on the flipside" - including Michael Newton - about their current observations and work.

They claim that they "know that they still exist" but it's we here "who don't believe that they do."  They're all working on methods to help us access them, or for them to access us.  There's a workbook at the end of both books on how to do so.

Jennifer and I talking to the Flipside on 9-25, sign up at

Hope to see you there!!!!
