Also...

Just a general thank you to all the folks who’ve been donating to the research. It’s not something I ask people to do, but some want to - and there’s a list of links at Rich Martini's WebPage - but I want to at the very least acknowledge a number of folks from around the planet who suddenly decided to send something my way to encourage me to continue doing what I’m doing. John in Arizona, Marc and Raili in Norway, Andrew in Switzerland, Cathy D and this story from Kai:

“My donation was a thank You for Your great work. I just finished the 2 books “It’s a Wonderful Afterlife.” “Architecture of the Afterlife” is waiting in line with the Tuning into afterlife. (And I still feel like to reread the first one “Hacking the Afterlife” there was a real “a-ha moment” in this book. In the chapter about talking to the spirit of Earth, I saw myself so clearly in a large auditorium, more like stadium, but indoors. It was like part of the (life) planning session, there were some planners in the middle and I so much wanted to be part of this current life, I looked over to my friends and they were like, “Don’t look at us, we will not joining you!” From the front of me, my son turned around and said, “I will help you with this.” Then I snapped back to my home, jumped out of chair and shouted, “I got the part, I got the part!” and I was really happy in this moment.

Your books are well written, entertaining, light and with so much information. I love your books. They are exactly what I need. No fictions. No dogmas. As a parent to trying to reach to the Flipside, I am open to every opportunity to learn how to do it. I’m on this journey a little over year and my son is guiding me where to look and from what to learn. I am amazed how much there is information. And I am sad that the only way to find the way to it seems to have to be the hard way.

It would be so much nicer to know who you are without it. But this seems to be the part of human experience. You lose some, you gain some. And then you will know; you haven’t lost anything really. I have my connections to the Flipside and You have been a great help leading me to find ways to do it. Thank You!”

Thank you Kai for that note, and I’m sorry for the loss of your son. He’s lucky to have chosen you. In terms of this research, which is unusual to say the least, I try to dedicate some part of my day to moving the needle forward. Whether it’s our podcast with medium Jennifer HackingTheAfterlife.com, or posting excerpts of films at Richard Martini MartiniZone - or putting up documentaries like FLIPSIDE or Hacking the Afterlife - or the 9 books I’ve put out there - it’s certainly something I’ve done because I feel compelled to do so.

It’s unusual to get donations from folks in Switzerland, Norway, Arizona - across the globe - but in my mind these people are all connected by the research. Because ultimately this research isn’t about me - it’s about how everyone says the same things about the journey with hypnosis, meditation or mediumship. And those nine books, three documentaries on Gaia demonstrate that.

In the 100 hypnotherapy sessions I’ve filmed, half without hypnosis, I’ve also done six of them with different hypnotherapists.

Each one has been a revelation of new information - afterwards I do the research to see how accurate or inaccurate my memory is, or my memories were. Then I transcribe the sessions, so I can get another crack at them, seeing what new ideas come to mind - and when I do so, it’s like I’m pushing the filters further out of the way.

My dreams have changed in that I have become aware during dreams that I am in a dream, that the people in my dream are playing roles in my dream, that I can stop them in the dream and ask them other questions about the journey. And then, when I do the podcast with Jennifer, frequently she’s start the podcast saying “You had an unusual dream yesterday.” And we explore what folks on the flipside were trying to share.

I guess this is a long preamble to a dream I had last night where I was hanging with my father, the inspiration for the book “Architecture of the Afterlife” - and we were talking about architecture, life, other stuff. And as the dream ended, I was aware of him taking my face in his hands as if to make me remember this moment, and saying “Son, you’re doing good work.”

This from a guy who built the largest university in the world (King Saud in Saudi Arabia) to the Sheraton on the Nile, a Beechnut factory in China, schools in Virginia and Chicago (they shot “Breakfast Club” in one of his his) to the window design on the Bahai Temple in Evanston - hearing “You’re doing good work” from dad the architect who worked at Holabird and Root is high praise.

Anyways, thanks for the continued support - it doesn’t need to be financial, it’s good when people have the courage to share stories of the afterlife that have happened to them, that they may or may not fear their colleagues or family will be horrified by - that lump all “tales of the flipside” with pyramid hat wearing people who speak in tongues. When someone shares a story, or research, or data - it’s humanity moving the needle forward in this unusual way that has only been available for a few decades. Sharing new information online with others in a forum about the afterlife.

Nothing wrong with examining the journey. It’s what we’ve been doing since we first started it.

My two cents.

Hacking the Afterlife with Jennifer Shaffer and special guests


I've been filming medium Jennifer Shaffer once a week for seven years. It's my own version of Michael Apted's "Up." In this case it's been weekly instead of yearly. You'd think she or I would get bored with doing this. She taps into the flipside, I ask questions - as if she was a dixie cup on a string chatting with those no longer on the planet. 

The results are in transcripts in "Backstage Pass to the Flipside" the latest book "Tuning Into the Afterlife" and our podcast "Hacking The Afterlife" on itunes.  Due to the holidaze, we weren't able to work together this week, but I dug up an interesting conversation we had in August of 2019. It relates to how people can access their loved ones on the flipside, or avatars, with or without a medium.  


The key is to have an open mind to the possibility.
A chat with Mama Cass, Yogananda, Krishna, Padmasambhava, the Alpha and Omega about how he got that image on the shroud. Mind bending and not for everyone - but pretty much points to the method of how to do the same. As she points out, this kind of investigation won't be appreciated for centuries, but we'll be on the flipside high fiving each other.

As to the comment about "Warren Beatty" being on the flipside and visiting friends over there - We bring a portion of our conscious energy to a lifetime. The rest stays home. We can hang out with, have fun with, party down with our pals on the flipside. We may not be aware of it but they are. Luana, an old friend of Warren's was showing Jennifer that he (his higher self) is hanging around with pals on the flipside. He's got plenty over there, including Harry Dean Stanton. Last time I saw Warren was at Harry Dean's memorial. He's alive and happy and fully in his persona. No need to stress over Warren not being on the planet.

 Enjoy. And Happy New Year.

CTE can be cured by Hyperbaric oxygen therapy says Junior Seau, Dave Duerson, Paul Allen

 A public service announcement. CTE can be cured by hyperbaric oxygen therapy. That factoid comes from some mind bending interviews with people who suffered from it and are on the flipside, including Dave Duerson and Junior Seau.

The film (free on Youtube) "Talking to Paul Allen, Junior Seau and Dave Duerson" details how they "came through" to report the information that Joe Namath has "cured his CTE" by using hyperbaric oxygen therapy. As odd as it is to hear this from this odd research, it's a public service announcement. If you don't believe the message came from the flipside, that's fine - the important part is the message. Science can cure CTE with the use of hyperbaric oxygen therapy.

If you disagree, don't believe, or want to learn more, do the research into the topic. Look up Joe Namath's story, which he's tried to tell people, but ran into a wall of disbelief. He stopped saying that he believed it cured him, but the cat is out of the bag. People on the flipside know it cured him, and wanted us to report it. Will post a link to the film below. PSA.

Phillip Adams: Ex-NFL player who shot six dead had CTE brain disease”

Phillip Adams: Ex-NFL player who shot six dead had CTE brain disease
US footballer Phillip Adams' brain showed evidence of damage linked to repeated head trauma.

A former US football player who police say shot dead six people in April has been found to have been suffering from a degenerative brain disease.

A post-mortem on Phillip Adams, who took his own life, revealed he had chronic traumatic encephalopathy.

Known as CTE, the disease is linked to repeated head trauma.

Officials say Phillips shot dead Dr Robert Lesslie, his wife and two of his grandchildren, along with two men working at Dr Lesslie's home.

The 32-year-old later killed himself after a stand-off with police in South Carolina."


Here's the film:




Sunday

↑LOVE ONE LOVE ALL 11:11↓

My wife Sherry came across this symbol yesterday.



↑LOVE ONE LOVE ALL 11:11


I liked seeing it in this context. My wife was the one who had the dream where she saw an old friend who died 20 years ago come to her and say something to her on a topic she was worried about. But my wife, ever the skeptic, said “Wait a second. You died 20 years ago. How can you be here now?”

And the friend replied “Think of 11:11. We meet at the decimals.”

When she woke up she asked me about it. I said “Think of the colon (ratio) symbol as a fence - on one side is the letter 11 which represents a hallway, and on the other side, another hallway. They have to slow down their frequency to speak or send us images, and we have to speed up ours in a dream, meditation or some other fashion to hear or see what they’re saying.”

Mediums don’t have that issue - as they are already seeing or hearing what they’re saying (and hopefully interpreting it correctly.)

But this symbol ↑↓11:11 epitomizes the idea of “so as above, so as below.” Meaning we’re on two sides of a realm, or a frequency, we can’t see it, hear it, know it - but when we cross over, we change the channel the way old TVs used to change between stations. We slip into the “thought frequency” or the “mind realm” - leaving the sense realm.

My wife also had a dream where she was speaking to the physicist Mino (she was reading a book about him at the time.) In the dream he said “All light is both particle and wave. When I was on the earth, my experience was more particle, now that I’m not it’s more wave.”

Two parts of the same coin. As above, so below.

If I could copyright it I would:

↑↓11:11

Hacking the Afterlife with Jennifer Shaffer, Steve Jobs and George Harrison


This is a bit different, as Jennifer had spoken with someone who was close to Steve Jobs the day before, and alerted me that he might want to stop by the podcast for a chat.

I didn't know that to be the case, but we had spoken to him before, so I prepared some questions beforehand. As noted, some of the questions to him, Jennifer could not know the answers. His comment that his relationship with Kubun Otogawa "saved his life so he could have his life" - was spot on, as he was a Zen Master that had a profound influence on Steven's life.

The questions about his LSD trip, his last words, and his comments about Joe Ranft are on the money as well.  Jennifer isn't familiar with the controversy around his first daughter, who wrote a book about his bad behavior. But he was aware of it, and comments on it. 

The point of this podcast is not to prove to anyone that "life goes on."  It's in the consistent and reproducible reports that people can seek the evidence that life goes on - because people can access anyone who has been on the planet, and ask the same questions and see if the answers differ in any fashion.

To date, they have not. As noted, we've been at this for seven years, I've been filming these interviews for longer, and the 9 books out there have transcripts. There are two documentaries on Amazon Prime via Gaia - "Flipside" and "Hacking the Afterlife" that give context to what you're about to see or hear. 

I apologize in advance to all those that this information will offend because of their world view or belief system. Having been filming people under hypnosis or without hypnosis accessing the same information, Jennifer is one of many mediums I've asked to be a cell phone to the flipside.  

The fact that we're still doing it after seven years attests to our friendship.  The book she's talking about is "TUNING INTO THE AFTERLIFE: HOW TO STAY IN TOUCH WITH THE FLIPSIDE" is available on Amazon and Audible.

The book includes a number of interviews with different people on the flipside, including my mom, a concert pianist.  The point of this podcast and these reports is to demonstrate to everyone how simple it is - but the key is to be open to the possibility, as noted by none other than Steve Jobs.

UPDATE:
A listener on Quora, Frank Madeiros sent this today: "Hello Richard. I believe you may have captured an EVP on the 12/8 podcast with Steve Jobs. Around 21:01 to 21:06 when you asked Jennifer to ask Steve Was he familiar with the movie Soul And he answered “ I helped with that “ you can hear a voice say what sounds like the same answer It was right before you repeated the answer Check it out and let me know Meantime I’ll capture the sample into Audacity for a closer look."

Well Frank, upon further review, I think you are correct sir.  My evaluation after taking the raw track, speeding it up and then slowing it down (25% increments both ways) my professional opinion is that you are correct. There is an EVP. (Electronic voice phenomenon). Using my software to slow it down, speed it up, to "hear" if there's anything in the track, and this isn't the first time I've done this, I can hear someone say "Joe" after I say his name is "Joe Ranft" and after she says "He's laughing I hear a “heh heh heh” on the track. 

Which wasn't in my studio, wasn't her dog lying in front of her (she mentions him later, I never saw or heard him). It's preceded by a crisp sound, like a cracker breaking, and then I say "Joe Ranft" and someone says "Joe."  And then a moment later, a clip of someone laughing. 

Having testified in court as an expert witness in film recording manipulation, I can offer that based on my expertise in the field, the track was not altered or changed in any way - that the word "Joe" can be heard if one slows it down, speeds it up, then plays it at normal speed, and a bit of laughing that isn't coming from me and just after she says "He's laughing."  

A classic EVP - that to anyone else's ear would be nonexistent, but to someone who has recorded EVP's in the past, noticed them on tracks, and used professional equipment to isolate them - I would say this fella heard it, and forced me to hear it as well. Could be an anomaly, but could be a voice as well. (EVP).

Thanks Frank. Won’t convince anyone else of anything, but good to hear it, and realize I have to pay better attention when editing the tracks or preparing them for broadcast.

THE ART OF DYING TO LIVE CONFERENCE

Hey! I’m appearing at an “Afterlife Conference” in February. I’m posting a link here. My old friend Professor Robert Thurman is hosting the event through Menla, the non profit organization set up by the Dalai Lama for Friends of Tibet. Robert is both an engaging speaker, a sage and a teacher of Buddhist philosophy, and I have had the privilege to travel to both India and Tibet with him and hear his insight into many things, including the afterlife. I could argue that without being allowed to accompany him to a trip around Mt. Kailash, I wouldn’t be on this page.

Based on the research I’ve been doing into “how to stay in touch with the flipside” - I’ve been invited to be part of this teaching conference. Others who will participate are Deepak Chopra, Dr. Eben Alexander and fascinating speakers, so it’s an august group to be associated with.

Some have asked me about doing this kind of thing, and it’s the first I’ve agreed to be part of. I will be talking about the new book “Tuning Into the Afterlife: Staying in Touch with the Flipside” - and discussing the latest research, as well as the unusual methods I’ve used to film people reaching out to the flipside and learning new information about doing so. (Cannot be cryptomnesia if it’s new information.)

I’m happy to share the link - there’s a fee to sign up that goes to the organization and I can suggest that if one can afford it, there will be some really interesting, sage folks participating that will make it worth anyone’s while to hear what they have to say about the journey.

So for serious students of the flipside (I say that tongue in cheek) or for those who want to explore THE ART OF DYING TO LIVE here’s the first notice of it:
