Irrefutable Proof That There Is Life After Death.

Miss Teresita, For Those Of You Who Are Incredulous

Once upon a time, a very long time ago, when I was a kid; when I was twelve years old, to be exact, a very important thing happened to me. Well, I would say that I made it happen. Yes, I made a pact with someone, and it paid off.

Every Saturday, my mother would go get Teresita, an old lady about the age of my own grandmother, to come and spend the day with us. My mother did this so that Teresita, who was an old friend of the family, would not spend her last days alone in her small apartment watching TV or listening to the radio, but so she could come to our house and witness and partake of the commotion that happens when there are several people of different ages living in the same household, including kids (me and my brother) and another old lady (my grandmother, my mother's mother) maids and pets of all kinds.

It was funny/curious, because my grandmother never really got up out of the hammock to talk to Teresita much; it is like she was jealous of her or I was the one who would talk to her and keep her entertained while my mother would be out doing errands; paying bills and buying groceries, or going to the beauty salon. My mother would turn the TV on for Teresita while she went out to do her errands, and at least she would be watching the soap operas accompanied by me, instead of being alone in her small apartment. Many a time, I would accompany my mother to go and get her, or to take her back home to her little apartment....and so the scene was my mother and me, ushering a thin, wirey old woman, (one who looked like the school teacher that she was; and I would respectfully say she looked very much like an old Popeye's Olive Oyle) to and from our car....she would go slowly, her wooden cane almost bigger than she she slid and dragged her feet over the ground. I remember it was a chore just to get her to get into the front seat...."Turn around, Teresita, fanny first, fanny first."

So, it was one of those Saturdays when I got my bright idea. We were sitting at the back porch where the TV was, and I thought of making a pact with Teresita. I approached her, knelt down in front of the couch where she was, and said, "Teresita, why don't we make a pact? I know that I am young, and you are old, but it does not mean that you will die sooner than I will (but, I did know that the probablilty was that she'd die sooner; of course I didn't say that). Lots of kids die in car accidents or from diseases. So, that being said, why don't we make a pact? The pact will be that whoever dies first, will do everything possible in their power to come back and tell the other person that, yes, there is life after death, and if nothing happens, then we are to assume that there is no such thing, life after death, or at least we will know that the person was unable to come back and report it." Teresita agreed; She thought it was a great idea, and so we shook hands over the matter, and told ourselves internally that we would never forget that moment, so be it.

Time passed, and I became 13, 14, 15, 16..and, I believe Teresita died when I was about 16 years old. One day, my mother told me she was in the hospital for some ailment, such as Pneumonia, and a short time later, she was no more. My mother came to tell me she had died. Uh oh. We went out to where her tomb was to put some flowers on her grave. I was so nervous that night, the night that she died, thinking that, Tere would come and pull on my feet....(my grandmother would always say from her hammock perch, "The voy a jalar los pies cuando me muera," meaning, "I'll come and pull on your feet when I die...." when anyone would "misbehave." I waited a day, and nothing happened....I waited another day, and nothing. I waited a week, and nothing. By the third week, I had forgotten the whole mess. I thought to myself, "Oh, nothing's going to happen," and I was didn't!

Four years later, I got married. Two years after I got married, at the age of 22, I got a call from a real good friend of mine. She said to me, "Maria, I have a psychic lady here as a guest for a few days, and she has already done a reading for me and also one for my husband...but if you would like to invite her to dinner, I'm sure she will do you the favor of a reading, too!" So I said, "Why, sure, ask her if she can come over tomorrow night, and I will prepare a dinner for her." And so, the lady came over. Her name was Sally. Sally had some interesting talents. The first thing she showed us was how she could levitate her arm....but since one is attached to one's arm, I didn't think much of that talent....I mean, how can you tell if she is levitating it or just lifting it up? You couldn't, really! But at least she thought she was...But here comes the interesting part...After we ate dinner, and we were sitting in the living room, Sally unexpectedly said, "Maria, I see an old lady next to you. And, she is trying to tell you something." I said, "Oh, well, what does she look like?" Sally said, "She is a thin old lady, and has a long dress on, and has round glasses. Her hair is grey and up in a bun." I said, "Oh, that must be my grandmother, my father's mother...she was just like that." But Sally said, "No, she says she is not your grandmother. She says she is just a friend, and that you know the message. There is a message for you and you are supposed to know it already." I was clueless. I could not think of anyone else who could fit that description. But then Sally said, "Well, she has a cane, too; a rather large wooden cane." When Sally said that, all of the hairs on my arms stood up, and probably those on my head, too! At that moment I knew exactly who she meant. I said, "Oh, my God! The pact, the pact....I made a pact with an old lady friend when I was twelve years old," I exlained to Sally! "Oh, my God, Tere, I got the message! Thank you, thank you, thank you for getting it across! Now I know! Now I know that there IS life after death!"

And now YOU know, too, the rest of the story! This is a true story. No bull crap here! Only the truth comes out of my mouth and my "pen" (how things have changed! We don't even write with pens anymore!).

Interesting story...Thank you..

Don't you think it rather strange that the seer described your friend as having a corporal body when one would think a departed soul would be ethereal..? ...And being encumbered with a heavy cane, indicating a continuing need for such...lot of detail here...I suspect the seer had inside information you are unaware of that was available to her...Sometimes we want something so much that we unknowingly go to extraordinary lengths to realize them...

On the positive side, it had to be comforting for you to relive that childhood experience with Tere and once again recall your affection for her...

When you are in the spirit world, you can project any image that you hold inside of yourself. Teresita was projecting her Earthly image so that I would be able to recognize her. If she had projected a different image, I would not have recognized her, and hence, the message. I can assure you that the seer was not even from my town; she had just come in a few nights before, from far away...and she knew nobody in my town. My other friend, the one who sent her over to me, was unfamiliar with Teresita, and I had never spoken to anyone about our pact. I tell you, it was the message I had been waiting for....for years.....I don't have to prove it to anyone. The knowledge rests in me now, and it is not is knowledge.

exactly, it had to be a vision you would recognize. Excellent, it must be very gratifying for you to know the cetainty of life after death. I would cherish it if it happened to me, as I have often wanted it . My wife says it happens to her all the time, visits from people past. but only once awaken from a deep sleep did i ever get any visions like that. Great read, thanks.

To Maven101, I had believed before, that there was life after death, because of my faith, which is Catholic, and because of my mother, who was a saint, who instilled into all of her children, that there was life after death and that we should prepare by leading a good life.  We are all taught about the life after death and it is the basis for believing the truth about Jesus, in the Catholic religion, etc.  But there comes a moment in time when one needs to actually experience the truth, to truly make it a part of you; a need to know, not just blindly believe.  That is what I was trying to do at the age of 12.  I succeeded.  Since that time, I have realized so many other things that are profound spiritual truths, that it makes that incident seem as child's play (and it was, for me).  But I post this so that others might be sure of the fact, through my experience.

To THINKING OUT LOUD:  You can do the same thing I did;  just be sure to pick a trusting person, a serious minded person who would actually do a pact like this for you...I'm sure you have such a person in your life (we all do, have at least one serious-minded and trustworthy person) who would be willing to go ahead with this plan.  I tell you, it was an exhilarating experience to go through.  Let me recommend the book, Journey of Souls, by Michael Newton. It is a fabulous and well-written true account on what happens when we die. Thank you so much for your comment!

Hinduism believes in life after death. According to Hinduism, as long as one has unfulfilled desires there will be rebirth. There may be a time period before a rebirth when the soul can exist in the form of spirit. It is often said that committing suicide is bad because the soul will wander and suffer a lot before taking up a new body.

Heaven and hell are also accepted. If you do extraordinary good things or bad things in life, you enjoy or suffer respectively in heaven and hell. But taking rebirth afterwards in the earth is a must till all your karmas are exhausted, according to Hinduism.

Some time ago I read a book named "I have lived before" (the true story of the reincarnation of Shanti Devi, it is based in a real case and I think it's another proof of live after death. That book was very interesting to me.

Dear Miruchi,

Thank you for your comments. Since that experience that I had as a child, I can tell you that I can vouch for the fact that there exists life after death. I have come to realize many of my past lives and they are as real (have been as real) as the one that I am living right now. Ultimately, they say everything is a dream, so try and make this "dream" as good as it can be, not only for you, but for others as well. Then you will have a pleasant remembrance to look back to.

Yes, metaphysician, the value here, I think, is to live up to your word, always. If you say you are going to do something, do it. That way, people will know that they can count on you, and if something were to arise such as my experience here, there will be no doubt in anyone's mind that it was your definite response. In the case of Teresita, she was the embodiment of trust; a noble soul. That is why there is absolutely no doubt in my mind that the pact was carried out and fullfilled.

All Crap. No dead soul can come back to this material world.Yes Mr.Maven101, Its knowledge that follows the divine teachings. Read Bible and Quran and you will find verses where God almighty tells us that once someone is dead, is dead. That no dead can come back, as his soul is being given another body, and lives either in hell or heaven. And that depends upon our actions in this material world. Have we followed our desires, lust and materialism or we have some soft human feelings towards humanity and God. Did we worship our own desires like an idol, or we have worshipped God's divine law. This decides our future life.

Mahtab 7 years ago

it is the SATAN/Jins who come in our dreams to misguide us and play with our beliefs. These Satans/Jins can be communicated with once one follows to obey them. Just like the illuminatis and secret societies, who worship satan, and these satans come in material/physical to give them a feeling that they are communicating with God almighty. In fact, religion is not dogmas and disbeliefs, Religion is what DIVINE TEACHINGS say. Once we disconnect with divine law, we try to SEE GOD with our own imagination/thinking we have fabricated about God. This misguides us. And misguidance is GOING TO HELL in the life hereafter.

Jaisimha's - Proof of Reincarnation 7 years ago

This question is for C V Rajan.

When the word "Belief" is used then the person doesn't really know the truth. "I believe, you don't believe" has NO meaning in the true context.

If one knows the truth he WILL tell the truth. Are there any persons in the world talk like that. There will not be any person. Reason only the Acharyas can talk like that.

Because only they have learnt the vedas we ordinary mortals do not go in search of the truth and keeps beating around the bush and in turn get nothing in turn.

According to you "Unfulfilled Desires" causes re-birth. So if one has fulfilled desire then he/she will not take birth again according to YOU. Then where does the soul goes after that is another matter you can't answer because you have no idea.

I dispute your assumption the assumption of "According to Hinduism".

First of all telling "According to Hinduism" is wrong. Those who follow Vedas are Hindus. Those who have no idea about Vedas are Not Hindus. You proved yourself that you have no idea about the vedas and your rather Vague statement stands proof for that.

Those who listen what the vedas and the Acharyas say then he WILL tell without the word belief. When somebody uses the word "Believe" then he is unsure of what he is talking about. Then how can one listen to what such a person is talking.

The Vedas Say Either Good or Bad Actions both are sins. Both points to desires. A person committing bad Karma takes birth to suffer and one committing good Karma ALSO takes birth to Enjoy. This is very logical because there is no person in the world who fully enjoys his life that means he/she commits both actions.

punarabhi jananam punarabhi maranam meaning taking birth and death repeatedly and that means there is no escape.

But is there escape really.

Yes there is.

What is that way?

There is really only ONE way in the KaliYuga.

Is it possible through Karma and Jnana Yogas?


Is it possible through Bhakthi Yoga?

Yes and No.

Yes because it can pave for Moksha.

No because it is not possible in Kali Yuga as Bhakthi should be like oil pouring from the tap non-stop. Can you imagine how oil pours without any interference.

Can Bhakthi be performed non-stop from the time it started till the end i.e. death? If yes then go get it (The Moksha)

If one is really interested then he will ask the question what is that ONLY way?

I know nobody is really interested but in case some rare-"body" is genuinely interested then he can send an email to me.

your another statement

But taking rebirth afterwards in the earth is a must till all your karmas are exhausted, according to Hinduism.

I dispute because it is the soul's choice to go first of all. Yes if one goes to "heaven" in the true sense to Brahmaloka (is that you meant CVRajan I hope so) then he should come bak here again but why should you want to go to heaven if there is a better place than that.

I am interested....tell me what is the only way?

Jaisimha's - Proof of Reincarnation 7 years ago

I am astonished to see the that YOU are interested in knowing the ONLY way out to go out of this material world.

First of all I congragulate you for showing interest.

You have made the first step towards Moksha.

There is this ONLY way and it is termed "SARANAGADHI" meaning "To SURRENDER".

Surrender to whom?

To God.

Who is God?

Lord Vishnu.

Where to get SARANAGADHI?

This is the most important question.

Before answering for the question Type the above word in Google bang you get it a lot of sites in fact.

The first one (site) is very important.

ok I answer before going any further

Go to India.

Where in India?

There are few places I know and the Easiest place to go is a city called Chennai (formerly Madras).

In Chennai where?

In Triplicane. Ok for now that is enough because it is very easy to find and go to Chennai as it is one of the 4 largest cities in India.

There are certain things to know before getting Saranagadhi while there is no restriction as to who should get it.

Just watch this video:

The 3 Great Acharyas Madhva Acharya, Sankara Acharya and Ramanuja Acharya.

I hope this answers your question. If there is doubt post in this comment or contact me at

What if I were to tell you that you will not find the God Vishnu or the Goddess in India at this present moment? Do you think it could be possible that they are incarnate and alive and breathing in flesh and blood in an other part of the world at this present moment? Do you think it is possible?

Jaisimha 7 years ago

Vishnu means to pervade every where with out exception. There is no place where He is not present.

Air is present everywhere in this world. Space is present every where in the universe but you cannot see. Just like that Lord Vishnu is everywhere even though you cannot see Him. He has numerous names - Vishnu sahasranama. One can totally surrender to Him thru an acharya to attain salvation. This is not same as going to heaven which is only temporary. Moksham is eternal.

Let me ask these questions.

Do You believe in the soul exists forever?

if yes

Do You believe the soul keeps taking births?

If Yes

Do You believe the soul will take any birth like animals, birds, plants, fish, insects according to the laws of karma?

If Yes

Do You believe that repeated births and deaths are not going to stop?

If Yes

Do You believe the repeated births and deaths can be avoided if you surrender to God?

If yes

Do You believe there is ONLY ONE God?

If yes

Do You believe that the ONLY God can give relief from births and deaths?

If yes

If your answer is No to any ONE question then....

There is only one God. The truth is that we keep coming back here because we want to. We don't HAVE to. We can stay in the spiritual worlds if we want to. We are eternal. We come here to work on ourselves. There will be a gradual change in consciousness. We are at the end of a cycle. We will never die. We are here. Kalki is here, and also Kali. Let those who have ears, hear, and those who have eyes, see. God has laws, rules. God can step over them, too.

I am understanding more about God by the Eckhart Tolle materials...he is really good. Everyone should at least read ONE Eckhart Tolle book. I am definitely interested in enlightenment in this lifetime.

Jaisimha 7 years ago

Shiva, Brahma and other Demigods and Demi-godess are not same entities.

Similarly Lakshmi, Saraswathi and Paarvathi are not same.

They have different powers.

It is said in Vedas:

To consider Brahma and Shiva on an Equal level with NARAYANA (Vishnu) is an offense.

Brahma and Shiva are holding the top positions in this material universe. Brahma is the most talented being in the entire universe and the first one to come to this universe.

He was entrusted the task of creating and in reality Bhagwan Vishnu creates through Brahma and destroys through Shiva.

You should not believe the words from half baked knowledge people. The truth comes from Acharyas only.

There are innumerable universes and each and every one has Brahma and shiva. THis is not known by the material scientists as the universes are covered by shield which even Brahma can't see.

When There is no suitable entity for Brahma's Position then Vishnu himself will occupy Brahma's position.

"I am definitely interested in enlightenment in this lifetime" - This is the most important message from you and which will pave way to Moksha. But you need to take action ie SARANAGADHI.

Have you seen amoeba, virus but you believe because some authority (scientists) says so, so you believe.

Similarly when the Acharya says you have to believe.

Read about Ramanujar

During his time on earth, Sri Ramanuja appointed 74 of his closest disciples to serve as keepers and propogators of this proper understanding of the Eternal Truths. These 74 disciples and their continuous lineage of successors up to the present day have come to

form the Acharya Paramparai, the lineage of Spiritual Teachers. It is this lineage that each and every person is given the opportunity to link to in their formal initiation into the Sri Vaishnava faith. This link is likened to a beautiful necklace.

Sri Ramanuja serves as its main jewel, and the lineage of teachers that preceded him and follow him are precious gems that come to completion at the clasp, the Lord Sriman Narayana Himself. A Sri Vaishnava's daily spiritual practice includes meditation on this lineage. Along with one's own immediate Acharyas, the meditation proceeds through the necklace, which lists the Acharyas in reverse chronological order as follows:

Sri Manavala MamunigalSri ThiruvaiymozhiPillai

Sri PillaiLokacharya

Sri VadakkuThiruvidhiPillai

Sri Nampillai

Sri NanJeeyar

Sri ParasaraBhattar

Sri Embar

Sri Ramanuja

Sri Parankusa

Sri Yamunacharya

Sri RamaMisra

Sri Pundarikaksha

Sri Nathamuni

Sri Sattakopaya

Sri Vishvaksena

Sri (Maha Lakshmi, the Divine Mother)

Sridhara (SrimanNarayana)

The chain is garlanding the rahasyatrAyam, the three Great Secret Mantras, that every Sri Vaishnava mediatates upon daily to understand his/her true nature, the nature of God, and the relationship of Divine Love that binds us to Him Eternally.

The first of these mantras is known as the Moola mantram, which was revealed by Sriman Narayana Himself to His Disciple Nara in his Nara-Narayana avathara. The second mantra is the dvayam, which the Lord revealed to Sri, the Divine Mother. The last of these mantras, and most well-known is the charama sloka, which was revealed to Arjuna by the Lord in His avathara as Sri Krishna in Sri Bhagavad Gita.

Does he mean MAN should NOT kill any living being?

Jaisimha, thank you for all that technical information. Do you suggest I start with the DVAYAM mantra? How do you pronounce that? Dayam or Vayam or just as it is written?

I can assure you that Saraswati, Parvati, and Laxmi are one and the same entity. They are just different incarnations of same, and yes, of course they have different powers. Although I am not Indian in this lifetime, I have had 300+ Indian/Hindu lives. I would say that yes, Thou Shall Not Kill means exactly should not kill anything...any living being. Every living being is precious, and is the spark of consciousness of the divine.

You are Perfect, for agreeing with what Jesus meant. I doubt how many Christians will agree.

Are you aware of your previous births? I know people remembering previous births but that is rare. That is also said in vedas. But remembering 300+ is mind blowing quite interesting. I have read in a book that Pyhtogoras remembered 99000 lives.

later about Mantra.


"Does knowledge precede belief, or does knowledge follow belief.."

Neither is true.

When there is knowledge the truth is known and the belief vanishes. When somebody says "I believe" then it means he has NO knowledge.

for example he said I believe she went out

is not the same as saying

She went out just a while ago.

You see the difference.

The darkness (ignorance) is removed by knowledge (light) and where is the question of one following or preceding the other.

Jaisimha 7 years ago

It is a Rahasya (secret) Mantra and hence can't be told. It will be told only by the Guru Acharya to the one who is really interested to attain Moksha.

That Mantra can't be told other than the Gurus.

How can it be a secret mantra if it is written in this hub by you? It is not a secret any more, then...

Yes, I remember certain lives. Thanks to the Indian tradition of keeping geneologies, I know the names of many of my previous lives but I don't necessarily remember all of them. I do remember feelings about several of my previous lives; the most important ones to me.

Jaisimha's - Proof of Reincarnation 7 years ago

You have to accept it ONLY possible to attain Moksha by Saranagadhi and there is no other way really.

It is known as "Rahasya" meaning "Secret" in Tamil and Sanskrit.

As I mentioned in one of my earlier Posts You have to get Saranagadhi from a qualified Guru and NOT from Ordinary mortals.

If there is a life after death then where are they and what do they do? I mean do they sitt on a cloud and play ping pong with god or something? I'd really want to believe in a life after death but it's just weird that the dead haven't told us all about them. Do they walk among us? Just that we can't see them? Well that's a little creepy I believe, what if I'm going to the bathroom...

Really interesting article! I hope Tere has a good time where ever see may be

They do not walk among us. There is a tunnel and there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Once we go into the light at the end of the tunnel, that is it for this lifetime; we will not be allowed back to the Earth plane until we have another life programmed out for us. What do we do over there? Well, my mother just died last year. I was told that she first found herself in a large never-ending and beautiful green park, with trees and grass, where there were park benches...that was where she was met by other loved ones from other lives that she shared, young and old people, and they gathered around her to welcome her to the spiritual plane. I don't know where she went from there, but there are actual places in the spiritual realm, just like there is a New York and a San Francisco on the Earth plane, where one can go. There is a plan over there as well as a plan down here, and there are teachers and masters that she must see there, to further her progress. But when we come over from a lifetime on Earth (which is very stressful) I think there is a rest period, to fully recuperate. After you recuperate you go over your life with one of the guides or masters, and talk about what was learned and accomplished. Life is much like going to a school....always learning.

Jaisima, this is for you:

(Genesis 1:29-31): 'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so. God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV) Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!

Awesome! I hope you'r right, would have been boring if life just ended. I'm going to die with a smile on my face! But in like 90 years or so. But I got to ask, do you believe God is there? And shouldn't it become a LOT of people there, I mean there's a lot of dead people. Also, if Tere couldn't come back to you then how did she appear in front of the old lady?

Have a good day!// Sam.

My dear SAM: God is everywhere. You are immersed in God, swimming in IT (so as not to place a gender on it). Just feel Its presence here and now. Listen to what Eckhart Tolle has to say...go to YouTube and you will see many of his videos. He is the clearest and easiest to understand....that can explain about that you may comprehend what God actually is...God is not a white bearded old man sitting on a throne floating in the sky. God is essence of consciousness (awakeness) and LOVE. Actually, He is much more than that but one cannot put an exact description to God. Yes, there are a lot of dead souls but God recycles them into new lives on Earth and elsewhere. In other words, you will be reborn. You think God doesn't have a handle on recycling? Brother, he is the INVENTOR of it all. Ha ha ha.

It was a very, very long time ago. Things happened that prevented it. But now I am "older" and "wiser" and I am surrendering to the will of GOD. If it wills it, then I will advance in this lifetime. One always keeps coming back here anyway, if not for ones own development, then to help others.

It is just that the reason feels the need to help others more than oneself.

Sam 7 years ago

Thank you for the explaination!

You actually make seens. I usually don't believe religious people but you're a smart lady. I really admire that :D Though I still don't believe in "God" I call it Faith. I believe that there's two opposits of what rules over us, Faith and Control. We can understand Control and reason with it but not Faith. And Faith doesn't understand us either. I believe Faith and Control isn't a person or an item. It's in us all. I believe we're all devine, and that's why I believe that if we really want to, we can make the world stop and make a loop.

But it's just a theary of mine.

(*The two biggest reasons to why I don't call Faith and Control God is because people call God HE which pisses me off and that God isn't in two. I donät think anything exists without an opposite."

Good day, people// Sam ^.^

Well you are right in that God is not a particular gender. God is all that there is: we are swimming in It. But this "It" has conscious awareness. Else I wouldn't be writing this, and you wouldn't be refuting it. God is like the ocean, and we are the fish in the sea...totally submerged. We call God our "father" because it is what created us. But you can also call God "mother," and it will not make one bit of difference. It doesn't matter to God what we call It, just as long as we acknowledge It, because, It loves Its creation, and likes that....It likes to be acknowledged and spoken to, and communicated with. It likes to experience every world and in every answer your question about why Tere decided to come back at that moment, it was because she knew that I was not sensitive enough to perceive her on my own, and she waited patiently until a psychic person came my who could actually perceive her. I am so thankful to her for waiting for that long...(well, in Earth years, that is....) I don't know how that translates in time over in the spiritual worlds because I believe there is no time over there; or it is perceived differently...

What a wonderful hub! I believe there is life after death. When we die we judge ourselves in the divine light of reality and choose where we end up. God exists. No doubt about that. I think though, that each soul is born only once...

maricarbo profile image

maricarbo 7 years ago Author

Thanks, Marcofrat,

Yes, we do just that...we are the ones who ultimately judge ourselves. But God is of an infinite mercy, and IT would like us all to graduate from this school. So you may view your different incarnations as grade levels of learning. It is not a matter of belief. It is a matter of knowing what IS. There is no doubt in my mind that we ALL reincarnate as many times as is necessary to iron out all of our issues so that we may eventually bask in the love and light of our creator, when we are finally purified enough to be worthy. At this moment I think that only Jesus is worthy. we all have a long way to go, but we all must learn about the many facets of LOVE without a doubt.

Thank you for the interesting story. Because I have been an intuitive reader for over 25 years I find the story to be familiar. It really is possible to see (almost like a dream) an image standing at your side. The image is not at all like a physical human body. If you close your eyes and try to imagine your own grandmom or friend or even your dog-you will know exactly how a psychic sees those from the other side.

Additionally, it is good to hear favorable feedback concerning intuitive readings. So many who promise to be intuitive are not. This is just too bad for those of us who really do wish to share this gift. Anyway, good work on all your hubs. Good topics....

this is a small story but I think you will like it :).

When I was in foster care my foster mom one day came out of her room in the morning and told me she had had a very weird experience in the shower. She said that she had felt her uncle was there with her, but he was alive! She thought it was so weird she wanted to tell someone and knew that I was interested in the unseen things of this world. We both agreed it was odd and got on with the day. Later that afternoon there was a call, her uncle had died very early that morning! We both were convinced that he had passed through as a way of trying to say good bye.

Yes, yes, definitely, Kirstenblog, I have also heard that sometimes just as someone is dying they will retrace their steps. I was told my grandfather did just that as he was dying. My mother saw him traverse the house, and go into his room, and all the way around the house on the inside, so as to "take one last look." I never forgot that, either. Things from the spirit world that we know very little of....interesting stuff!

I am glad you enjoyed my little story :). It is my only personal type experience. I have read loads of stories and books about this sort of stuff. I do not find it difficult to believe these kinds of stories and experiences as I personally believe that I am more then just the sum of my parts. I am more then just electrical synapses and chemical balances. The nature of the after life is a mystery that will not be revealed to me so long as I am alive but its a lot of fun to try to imagine. I read this book (can't remember what it was called) that was written by a woman who channeled spirits through automatic writing, she channeled the spirit of a dead psychic to write this book describing the after life. The way it was described was beautiful, I would recommend it if I could remember the name- might have to try to find it later :).

You would really enjoy Michael Newton's books. He is a Psychologist or Psychiatrist who does regressions and has written several books on the subject. I started with Journey of Souls. You will not put it down. Then there is the second book, which I also read. He compiled a "roadmap" of the afterlife by bits and pieces given to him through different sessions with different people. In the afterlife there are actual places where you can visit and they will coincide with what other people "report" who have come back from the afterlife to live and tell about it. Highly interesting material if you want to know what is over there.....on the other side!

Dear Russell,

Do you believe that Alaska exists? Have you ever been there? I have not, but I believe people who tell me that they've been there. Just because I have not had the experience of Alaska does not mean that it does not exist. And I do hope to visit there sometime before I die to this life, if I'm not too old. I am not afraid of death, because I know that I am eternal and I cannot possibly die. Are you afraid of death? Possibly, if you are commenting this. But do not be...because you are also eternal and you will never die.

Dear Lady,

Tell us about the lives we have there, and the things we do on the "other" side, if you can. I think you are right. I do know that most of the time we are "studying" to be better.

But I want to know what you say about it. My mother died in March of 08. I wonder what she's been up to over there.

Lady Guinevere profile image

Lady Guinevere 7 years ago from West By God

Some rest for a few---time is not the same as it is here. A few months there could be many years here. Some want to come right back as soon as they can. Just as we have past lives here we also have those past lives there (home).

For instance, I haven't written about this one yet, I was brought to a place that I remembered being in there many years ago. It was not in a gold building or anything like that. I was with a lot of others where I was and we lived in like tents, but the tents weren't of canvas, they were like sheer curtain material. All of them were see through and no one minded because we didn't have these kinds of bodies we have here. The colors there are so much more brighter there. These structures were our homes while we were there. We were near a stream and it flowed so clear and made such a beautiful noise and it flowed down stream and around a bend. We would go down to this stream and just wade our feet in it. Some would hop in and play, but most of us just sat there in rest and repose. It was a quiet place there and very serene. Sometimes I even wonder why I left there to come here. This place on this Earth is a learning place--a school if you will. We learn all the what if's and gain knowledge about ourselves through all the other contacts that we have here because most of those are the one's whom we have always had at our home. Everyone helps others grow.

There are schools elewhere too, not just our planet. Even there there are things to do and see and learn. We never truly rest as in sleep. I do know that there is a kind of initiation period of about 3 months (our time) and some can be a bit longer or even shorter. It's just a time to reaquaint us to there and also to review what he learned and what we need to work on more and devise a plan on getting that accomplished.

At a gala in Houston where swarms of people filled the Alley Theatre, physics were hired for the "entertainment" that night. I was told things that in no other way could have been known to those psychics regarding my deceased father and brother. Yes...I believe in an afterlife and also believe some people have the gift of being able to communicate with ones who have entered the spirit world. Of course there are the ones who operate as psychics and who are fakes. This makes many people skeptical of all of them.

WOW, very interesting comments...let us pretend for a second, or be sure, life goes on after death in whatever shape. If my father raped me, my mother bit me up because she was alcoholic, my friend sold me as a prostitute and I was robbed so many times and hated for my red hair etc.etc.etc. Wouldn't it bother you that I will meet those people again in the after - life. Not every body's life was a love story. Don't you hate the fact to see Adolf Hitler and other devils who caused so much pain on earth, in the afterlife???

So let us do bad in this world to benefit ourselfs because it will not really goes on in another form...

Isn't why we have so much selfishness on this planet because we think we will live eternally. This is the reason we do evil...people just can't have enough and they are willing to destroy any human in their way even after they have made billions...what will happen to those people in the afterlife...Can somebody explain please?????????

maricarbo profile image

maricarbo 7 years ago Author

Yes, George Papa, that is a valid concern. No, Hitler and similar mindsets will not be in the same place as Mother Teresa. When you are in the spirit world, you will be with people of like vibrations, unlike here on Earth. The reason why we are all jumbled up here on Earth, with a diversity of people with different vibrations than ours, is that accelerated learning comes with conflict. And, when you are put in the same room with people who think and feel differently than yourself, well, that creates conflict and conflict creates learning, believe it or not; the friction does. In the spiritual planes, or realms, you are happier because you naturally float to your highest possible vibration....and there you are met with others of like mind. If that turns out to be a hell, well, then it is....but, no, you will not be with people who hurt you. In the Bible it says that there are "many mansions" in heaven, meaning that there is a place for everyone, "good," or "bad."

Maricarbo is quite correct. One needs to understand re-incarnation and what it is and isn't. We don't always come back in the same body or same sex as the previous one. I wrote a hub on this and Maricarbo, if you don't wantme to add my hubs here, just let me know. I don't do it for self promotion only spreading of knowledge.

maricarbo profile image

maricarbo 7 years ago Author

Dear Lady,

I have no problem with you adding your hub links here....I too, am only interested in promoting truth. As for reincarnation, I know many of my past lives and I know for a fact that I have always been female. But I guess one could be the opposite sex if that is the only opportunity one will have to re-enter or if that particular experience is needed for growth; which brings me to the topic of soulmates and twin souls. A soulmate is a person, female or male, whom you have had many incarnations with, and therefore feel a kinship with. Everyone has encountered people in their lives who you just "click" with instantly. You feel you've known them all your life. These are soulmates. But the twin soul is more than a soulmate. A twin soul is the other half of you which is of an opposite gender. I have also encountered my twin soul and have had several lives together with him although he is not with me now, but he is on the Earth at this time. The twin soul is a reality and don't let anyone tell you it is not. I've known that reality, that is why I speak of it.

You do know that psychics have been 100% proven to be false now, they are usually people with good interpersonal skills and research skills. It's easy to trick information out of someone.

Well, I'd like to know more about the place and what people do in the afterlife. Can you please tell us? I'd like to know much more because my brother died and I can't cope with this. It's too much frustrating for me to accept his death. Since he died, I think the world is horrible, God is horrible, everything lost its meaning,everything became so meaninless that I can't understand the purpose of life anymore. Please help me, if possible.

When I read this, my first thought was: did you ever mention this 'pact' to the friend you referred to who arranged for you to meet with this psychic? Unfortunately,there are 'mediums' who are very cunning in their ability to pry 'preview' information about their subjects. Don't get me wrong, I had an experience immediately following my mother's death (when I was a teenager) that made a lasting impression on me - and while I still have questions (if not doubts) about the likelihood of life after death, I certainly can't rule it out.

With all due respect, isn't that visage of an elderly woman with round glasses, gray hair in a bun and a cane somewhat stereotypical and generic? If you asked 100 people to make up an old woman character, I'm guessing quite a few would look just like that. She didn't give a name (if she was talking to her to the point where she was saying she wasn't your grandmother, why couldn't she just say "Hey, it's teresita")? Why didn't she actually GIVE the message instead of just saying "You already know the message"? That's about as unspecific as you can get, not a basis for belief in an afterlife, especially when coming from somebody claiming to levitate their arm. The whole story makes me Levitate my eyebrows and levitate my eyes around in my head.

I get the need to believe that we don't just snuff out, I do. And I REALLY want to be wrong. But unfortunately in the whole of human history, we still don't have ONE bit of undeniable proof of ghosts or afterlife or anything else. It seems like out of the billions of people who have died, at least ONE of them would have made a fairly public commotion. Giving up belief in something reassuring is hard. Finding out Santa isn't real (or do you believe in him too) is hard for kids. Giving up belief in an afterlife is hard for adults. Even more so because you can't disprove it. I could tell you that I know that when we die you go to a giant circus tent filled with clowns. Scary, scary clowns of every shape and size.

Prove that we don't. You can't. Just like we can't prove you're wrong. And I'm sure it must be very comforting that your beliefs are safe from the bullies of science and reality.

Maricarbo story i beleive and i hope that something like that happens to me as i cant help but think about what will happen to me and everyone i care about when they die.

I suppose i will need to go to a medium/psychic person who has no idea who i am to see if anyone who is on the otherside contacts them and gives proof of who they are.

How do i go about finding a reliable person who wont take my money and give me useful information about my past loved ones?

Thank you Maricarbo for sharing your story. There are many stories, some are scientific, others are experiences, as is yours. TAPS is an organization using science to prove existence of spiritual entities. The Trilogy "Conversations with God" is an example of inpiration experienced by the author. I had an engineering collegue that lived in a haunted house. His young sister had an invisible friend named Hagen. Many years later, they discovered that the owner of the property in the 1800s was indeed named Hagen. This engineer was a skeptic in every way, except one, he believed very much in ghosts. These invisible entities moved things right before his eyes, such as radio dials. I believe as we advance in technology, it will be possible to communicate with the other side just as easily as using the phone. Just because we don't know how yet, does not mean that it is not possible.

The guidance available in the Holy Qur'an in the subject is:

Blessed be He In whose hands is Dominion; and He over all things hath Power;-

He who created death and life, that He may try which of you is best In deed: and He is the Exalted In Might, Oft-Forgiving;-

He who created the seven heavens one above another: no Want of proportion wilt Thou see In the creation of ((Allah)) Most Gracious. so turn Thy vision again: seest Thou any flaw?

again turn Thy vision a second time: (thy) vision will come back to Thee dull and discomfited, In a state worn out.

and we have, (from of old), adorned the lowest heaven with Lamps, and we have made such (Lamps) (as) missiles to drive away the evil ones, and have prepared for them the penalty of the Blazing Fire.

for those who reject their Lord (and Cherisher) is the penalty of Hell: and evil is (such), destination.

when They are cast therein, They will Hear the (terrible) drawing In of its breath Even As it blazes forth,

almost bursting with fury: every time a group is cast therein, its keepers will ask, "Did no warner come to you?"

They will say: "Yes indeed; a warner did come to us, but we rejected Him and said, '(Allah) never sent down any (Message): ye are nothing but an egregious delusion!'"

They will further say: "Had we but listened or used Our intelligence, we should not (now) be among the companions of the Blazing Fire!"

They will then confess their sins: but far will be (Forgiveness) from the companions of the Blazing Fire!

As for those who fear their Lord Unseen, for them is forgiveness and a great reward.

and whether ye hide your word or publish it, He certainly has (full) knowledge, of the secrets of (all) hearts.

should He not know,- He that created? and He is the one that understands the finest mysteries (and) is well-acquainted (with them).

it is He who has made the earth manageable for you, so traverse ye through its tracts and enjoy of the sustenance which He furnishes: but unto Him is the Resurrection.

do ye feel secure that He who is In heaven will not cause you to be swallowed up by the earth when it shakes (as In an earthquake)?

or do ye feel secure that He who is In heaven will not send against you a violent tornado (with showers of stones), so that ye shall know How (terrible) was My Warning?

but indeed men before them rejected (my warning): then How (terrible) was My rejection (of them)?

do They not observe the birds above them, spreading their wings and folding them in? none can uphold them except ((Allah)) Most gracious: truly ((Allah)) Most gracious: truly it is He that watches over all things.

Nay, who is there that can help you, (even as) an army, besides ((Allah)) Most Merciful? In nothing but delusion are the Unbelievers.

or who is there that can provide you with sustenance if He were to withhold His provision? Nay, They obstinately persist In insolent impiety and flight (from the truth).

is then one who walks headlong, with His face grovelling, better guided,- or one who walks evenly on a straight Way?

say: "It is He who has created you (and made you grow), and made for you the faculties of hearing, seeing, feeling and understanding: Little thanks it is ye give.

say: "It is He who has multiplied you through the earth, and to Him shall ye be gathered together."

They ask: when will This promise be (fulfilled)? - if ye are telling the Truth.

say: "As to the knowledge of the time, it is with Allah alone: I am (sent) only to warn plainly In public."

at length, when They see it close at hand, grieved will be the faces of the Unbelievers, and it will be said (to them): "This is (the promise fulfilled), which ye were calling for!"

say: "See ye?- if Allah were to destroy me, and those with me, or if He bestows His Mercy on Us,- yet who can deliver the unbelievers from a grievous Penalty?"

say: "He is ((Allah)) Most gracious: we have believed In him, and on Him have we put Our trust: so, soon will ye know which (of us) it is that is In Manifest error."

say: "See ye?- if your stream be some morning lost (in the underground earth), who then can supply you with clear-flowing water?"

[67:1 to 30]

Time of death and place of death are both known to the Creator.

Every soul will taste of death. Then to God all have to return.[3:185]

Wheresoever we may be death will overtake us, even tough we are in lofty towers.[4:78]

No soul knows in what land it will die. Allah alone is knower,Aware.[31:34]

No soul can ever die, except by God's leave and at a term appointed.[3:145]

Ande very nation has its term, and when its terms comes, they cannot put it off an hour nor yet advance (it).[7:34]

For every nation there is anappointed time. When their time comes, then they cannot put it off an hour, nor hasten (it).[10:49]

have they not considered the dominion of heavens and the earth, and what things God has created and that it may be that their own term draws near? In what faact after this will they beleive?[7:185]

Say to them O Muhammad (Peace and blessings of Allah be upon him): The death from which you shrink will surely meet you, and afterward you will be returned to the Knowerof the invisible and the Vsisible, and he will tell you what you used to do. [62:8]

But God rprieves no soul when its term comes, and God is Aware of what you do [63:11]

And they say: There is nothing except our life of the world, and we shall not be raised again [6:29]

Andif you hould feel astonihed, then how wondrous is their saying: When we are dust, are we then forsooth (to be raised) in a new creation? Such are they who disbeleive in their Lord; such have carcans on therinecks, such are rightful owners of the Fire, they will abide therein. [13:5]

And they swear by Allah their most binding oaths (that) Allah will not raise up him who dies. No but, it is a promise (binding) upon Him in truth, but most of mankind know not. [16:38]

The guidance in the Holy Qur’an which is a message of God to the whole mankind is available as under:

Blessed be He In whose hands is Dominion; and He over all things hath Power;-

He who created death and life, that He may try which of you is best In deed: and He is the Exalted In Might, Oft-Forgiving;-

He who created the seven heavens one above another: no Want of proportion wilt Thou see In the creation of ((Allah)) Most Gracious. so turn Thy vision again: seest Thou any flaw?

Again turn Thy vision a second time: (thy) vision will come back to Thee dull and discomfited, In a state worn out.

And we have, (from of old), adorned the lowest heaven with Lamps, and we have made such (Lamps) (as) missiles to drive away the evil ones, and have prepared for them the penalty of the Blazing Fire.

For those who reject their Lord (and Cherisher) is the penalty of Hell: and evil is (such), destination.

When They are cast therein, They will Hear the (terrible) drawing In of its breath Even As it blazes forth,

Almost bursting with fury: every time a group is cast therein, its keepers will ask, "Did no warner come to you?"

They will say: "Yes indeed; a warner did come to us, but we rejected Him and said, '(Allah) never sent down any (Message): ye are nothing but an egregious delusion!'"

They will further say: "Had we but listened or used Our intelligence, we should not (now) be among the companions of the Blazing Fire!"

They will then confess their sins: but far will be (Forgiveness) from the companions of the Blazing Fire!

AS for those who fear their Lord Unseen, for them is forgiveness and a great reward.

And whether ye hide your word or publish it, He certainly has (full) knowledge, of the secrets of (all) hearts.

Should He not know,- He that created? and He is the one that understands the finest mysteries (and) is well-acquainted (with them).

It is He who has made the earth manageable for you, so traverse ye through its tracts and enjoy of the sustenance which He furnishes: but unto Him is the Resurrection.

Do ye feel secure that He who is In heaven will not cause you to be swallowed up by the earth when it shakes (as In an earthquake)?

Or do ye feel secure that He who is In heaven will not send against you a violent tornado

The psychic told you about a messege but didn't tell you what it was. Old people use canes too, so she easily guessed the person would be using a cane. She also didn't even say it was your grandmother, but a friend. I'm sorry but the psychic doesn't count.

There "IS" life after death. To accept a statement of this magnitude, one must have irrefutable empirical evidence. The bottom line is: There IS an abundance of evidence for the afterlife. Go to: and read his book online - it's FREE! He has 29 chapters of scientific proof for the afterlife. The evidence is

irrefutable. If you read this book, then you either accept or reject the evidence. Blind faith, personal beliefs, and ancient supersticions from the great "holy books", that were written two thousand years ago cannot compete with repeatable scientific evidence. Science does and always will prevail over personal beliefs. Hard core evidence is the key. This is what I go by and is what everyone else should go by, NOT blind faith. Read some of this book and it will surely open your eyes to the truth, the ultimate truth!

So much for the pact. I thought she was supposed to pull your feet. Odd to how you didn't have any contact except that some psychic was around. Yknow harry houdini disproved psychics, god disproves them as being the con artists they are. Noone returns from the grave as your pact amply displayed. If they could return can you imagine how many there would be. impossible. God does things decently and in order.

Yes,there is life after death. I am a survivor. I cannot comment on the actual atmosphere without taking some of you for years of study. That's why I wish that I could get the understanding to you of how your atmosphere is created.

Some of you know a little, but you are not aware enough of the extra knowledge that is needed to progress any further than what you can. It is in the Perceptive abilities of the eyes. And that is where the education lacks.

But, the whole brain plays a part and that is also lacking in all ways. Nothing is different in this world between life or death; they are the same. But the difference between the two is there is no ability to create a program in death. You are completely bound in death until there is no more activity and no more covering of the bone. But, what happens after the covering fades?

The atmosphere of the one that was living is now gone. The only thing that remains is in the memories of the people. Their atmospheres contain portions of the living that is now dead and that fades leaving the living with examples that are dead.

Thank you for the beautiful story! Years ago, I went to a psychic who I met at a bookstore. She seemed really good so I made an appointment and gave it a try. I had never met this woman and met her actually far away from my house while visiting my boyfriend. The appointment I made with her was a life-changing experience. She described a brother like figure who wanted to say something. I don't have any brothers. She said he looked like a me a little bit and he wanted to tell his mom that he was sorry for the way things happened. Right then, I knew it was my cousin Bobby who had died 3 years before in a motorcycle accident. He was only 19 and his death devasted the whole family, especially his parents, of course. The psychic said she could see him right behind me and she described the urgency of his message. I had not been close to my aunt for a while but I worked up the courage one day to relay the message. Believe me, it was hard...we are Cuban and she considers herself a Catholic. Psychics are not usually part of a Catholic's religious life. Still, I relayed the message a few weeks later. I was surprised when she said, "I know" he sent me the same message with a couple other people. I was totally in shock! He had been trying to reach her through anyone that he could. The psychic who then was meeting people in a small nail salon where she also did nails is today considered the 1 Psychic in America. She actually won the recognition on TV and now tours the country and appears on many national syndicated shows. Like I said before, a life-changing experience.

Also my question is do spirits visit us and why, I feel through my life I have had some occasions where I feel loved ones that have passed over are near by. Absoloutly loved your comments on here, keep it up, god bless. Jason

One bad thing is that i couldn't see her but again a good thing is i could realize her vibrations near me always.. Love you grand ma.

I have been with many people at the time of death. Some were revived and all who came back immensely changed their values. Any doubters should read "Closer to the Light" the NDE of children, by Morse, Perry and Moody (well documented); "Many lives Many Masters" by Brian Weiss, a notable psychiatrist (it changed his life...just read the forward and you will read the rest). Don't be discouraged or dissuaded. Life is simpler and more profound than you can ever imagine.

Interesting story. But in fact if it prooves anything, it will do just for you. It prooves to you that there is some sort of life after death, and also prooves that some psychics are real as well.

On the other hand, talking with a religious catholic man I know about this issue, he told me that the problem is not finding proofs, there are many, the problem is knowing if they are real, sice that's the way devil uses to confuse our minds.

So, I guess at the end, not even you shoud be convinced of this proof. :/

Material body here, material body there. Here, there, and everywhere. The Universe recycles everything. The opposite of our material plane, to those who dwell there, is just as real to them as ours is to us. My wife encountered her foster father who had been gone for several years. He was there only momentarily. I saw nothing, but she could touch him. I have no doubt that he was there, because his presence helped her in a difficult time, in a way that no one else was able to.

both my mother and father visited my house about 1 month after they died. It was unexpected and shook me. It was proof to me that they offer their last sign of love to those whom they love and were close to.They then depart to somewhere else...forcing us to move on with our life. One relative I disliked would continue to pester me. I FELT its presence and ORDERED it out of my life. EDGAR CAYCE confirmed there is an afterlife.

bassie 5 years ago

Since our SUBCONSCIOUS is always in communication with all subconscious minds on Earth, it is quite possible that the subconscious mind of the deceased can communicate with you. However it could be our own creation this question and answer thing. Perhaps since we have 25& of DNA each from our mother/father /grandfather/grandmother. ALL CELLS in the body communicate so maybe that component of DNA which IS our relative INSIDE us communicates with us.

I know for a fact, there is life after death. When I was 13, I had a girlfriend that I spent time with. She had a 14 year old sister whom I never saw as she was upstairs in bed for an illness. She passed away one day, and that night my girlfriend stayed over night with me. We were both laying there and talking. All of a sudden a beautiful young girl with red hair, and a peach colored dress stood at the foot of our bed. I said to my girlfriend, do you see what I see?? She replied yes. Then she was no longer there.

The next day, I went to my girlfriends house down the street. I walked in the front door which was open. And there was the casket. In the casket, there lay that beautiful girl, her red hair in the updo that we saw her with. And the gown she was being showed in was peach colored. There she was. The girl that appeared at the foot of our bed the night before.

Since that time, I have had a few more proofs that there sure is life after death.

Another account was when my husbands cousin passed away from cancer. We had just gotten back from vacation and heard of her death. So we went to see her. The small room the casket was in, in those days people were laid out in the home, the room was about ten by about six or seven. Just enough for the casket.

I knelt on the stool next to the casket and said a prayer. I was very fond of Isabel. When I was done praying, I looked up and all of a sudden what appeard as steam or smoke arose from her body and kept going up. There was no one in the room but her husband and my husband, who were over by the room opening talking. I had the shock of my life when I saw that going up. I got up and since I was so shaken, all I could do was cry. The husband tried to comfort me saying she was in a better place. Well, in those days you didn't talk about things like that. No one would believe you. To this day, I am sure I saw her leaving her body and on her way up to wherever she would end up.

I have had a few more things like this happen to me. Each one was different. I also can tell people there is also life after death of a pet.

One night as we were staying at my sisters place in Virginia, I had to use the restroom. I got out of bed and there at the foot of our bed, was her boxer who she had put down a few years before. He got up and walked into the hall and disappeared.

Two things here make things so different. The beautiful young girl was just like you or me. She was solid. Not like the ghosts people pertray. I couldn't see thru her. She was just like another person. But the dog, even tho I could make out the complete dog, I could see thru him.

So now I tell people who are grieving about a pet that they had lost, I can tell them the story about the boxer and let them know there is life even for our pets.

There has been other visitations, but these two were the most apparent.

I try to tell people yes, there is life after death, because I have seen it.

my brother died last year, he was passionate about numerology, and studying life after death. Twice after his death, his daughter spoke on her phone which has a recorder to him, once in my presence. While we could not hear him when she spoke, when the tapes are played back, he answers her questions clearly. I have never heard or anything like this. Before his death I considered myself to be agnostic, but since the tapes, I know, that life exists after death. My brothers name was Steve, I miss him alot. Thank you for sharing your story.

Dean 5 years ago

A very thought provoking article here. Although I wish greatly something like this would happen to me. I used to believe in the afterlife. But since my Fathers death when I was 7, I have had no signs at all (I am now 18) And I know for a fact, if my father had the power to, he would have sent me one by now. This has changed my view and I no longer believe. But this is very depresing as you can imagine, as now I am afraid of death because I do not want to simply "cease to exist". I have tried desperately to revert back to my old belief, but I just can't. I desperately need something like this to convince myself once again. You are lucky to have had this sort of experience.

DarkEye 5 years ago

This isn't a valid proof. It's a common trick to play with the most probable elements - common names, old people with canes, etc. It's quite probable that at the age of 22 one has lost some old friends, isn't it? She hadn't mentioned the name of the lady and she hadn't said the most important thing - the message. "You know what it is" is just a cheap way to smear things up and make you wonder. If it doesn't work, which is quite probable, then you can't really accuse the psychic of bullshitting you since they don't mention anything specific. Thus, they put the burden on you, your memory and your experience with the dead person.

i can relate to the original story posted two years ago,

when i was little there was this elderly man that lived on my dads property in a little room. he grew up with my dad and also watch me grow to a certain age, we were fairly close, but we did not make a pact or that sort of thing. when passed on a few days after he appeared in my dream, in my dream i ask him how come you still here, he replies that "i wasn't dead and before they could burry me i jumped out" , the dream ended. a few days after i have another dream, in this dream he tells me " i will be leaving now and wont be returning again" i treid understanding both these dreams but couldn't until i read this ladies story. but who knows for sure it could be all in your head or there could be realy spirits roming the earth until they find their way into the world meant for them! the only way we will know if there is life after death is by us dying ourselfs! thank you.!

Jonathan 5 years ago

I'm afraid this isn't proof of life after death. It is proof that some people have a psychic ability to pick up information stored in another's head and misinterpret it as a message from beyond the grave. That's how mediums work. They don't actually speak to dead people - they read information in our brains a bit like wireless connection. I've had countless messages where the general identity of somebody I've know has been revealed but their other comments have been entirely inaccurate, or I've even had so-called "messages" from people who are still alive!!

When you die you have no body, no eyes so you can't see, no ears so you can't hear, no mouth so you can't speak and no brain so you can't think. How exactly is communication with the dead supposed to work when you are nothing?

Many years ago when I was 26, I had a cousin I was not close to who as 30 yr. One day in August it was extremely hot and I was sweltering in my apartment when suddenly my cousin was in the living room. I thought at first she came in without knocking and was trying to be polite, but was irritated. She looked at me and said, "I have just come to say goodbye", and disappeared. First thing I did was jump in the shower (must be heat stroke, seriously). When I came out of the shower, the phone was ringing and it was my aunt telling me that my cousin had just been killed in an auto accident.

The subject of the afterlife and of the spirit world has always interested me a great deal and i truly believe it exists, through the research i have done over the years, however i think its wise to have a realistic approach to this subject and not just accept everything that is said as truth. your header says "Irrefutable Proof That There Is Life After Death." unfortunatly that is incorrect its not even proof at all, just an experience you may or may not have had, im not calling you a liar just saying i dont know, also the evidence given by the seer was weak imo, how many people know of an old thin lady with grey hair and a walking stick? lol plus the whole floating arm thing make me wonder if she is a fraud, sorry i dont mean to knock your story or try to make you doubt your belief that she came to you, just my 50 cents :)

Jack 5 years ago

While this is a nice and touching story, it is an anecdote and as such is proof of nothing. The reason why there are so many stories like this is because most of us want to believe there is something beyond this life - so much so that we will latch on to any little thing that might lead us to believe there is life after death. Just because we want to believe it, doesn't make it so.

Also, that psychic was definitely a fake. Do some research on "cold reading" and find out how these scam artists operate - anyone can learn to do it.

In my early 20s, I was living in a 4bedroom boarding house that had only 7 residents including me, the other 3 boarders and 2 maids. One sunny morning, as i waited for my taxi in the kitchen among one other boarder and both of the maids, i saw a tall woman wearing a long white gown with very long curly shiny black hair walk (or glide) by the door that openned to the dining room from the kitchen. my initial reaction was admiration of her hair! I asked the maids if there was a new boarder that moved in? or someones guest? and i stressed on how beautiful her hair was. i even thought if she was a model. then one of the maids said, "oh you can see her too? she's the nymph who lives in the Tamarind tree in the front yard! She's so beautiful isn't she?" When she told me that all of a sudden the fear shot through me (15 years later my hair the back of my neck still sands when i recall her image). i reacted with disbelief and asked, "what? is she like a "white lady" type of ghost?" but the maid said, "no, shes not a ghost, shes a nymph, a fairy, an "encantada". Then the maid tells me more of the other " beings" she " sees" . But my taxi arrived so i left. That night when i got home, i realized that the tamarind tree the maid mentioned was right by the gate. so i would say a little message in my mind to the nymph not to scare me. I never saw her again after. But I will never forget her, especially her hair!!!

interesting, but I can't see any "Irrefutable Proof" presneted that an afterlife exists. You ask the reader to assume a great deal and accept your suppositions as true, for example that someone can be a psychic. Do you have any evidence other than your testimony? Pictures, corraborating testimony from impartial 3rd parties, anything objectively measureable etc.?

I find all of the above stories facinating. I know some people believe they are lies or that everyone is delusional. But from my experience, I know that life exists and I believe someone else can have a similar experience. To the person who said their father did not send a sign, that doesn't mean there is no life after death. Every one does not send a sign. My grandmother was a wonderful woman and loved me dearly but never one sign from her. Like I said above, I received a sign from someone I was not close to and I worked with a woman who received a sign from her teacher when she passed away. She did not know why, but the teacher was young and healthy when she passed, but not close to my co-worker.

You are correct, maricarbo! You do not have to prove your personal beliefs to anyone. Being beliefs, they are intangibles; being personal you are not imposing them on others anyway.

I have been more and more convinced that there is life after death. I believe that my departed loved ones have been communicating to me all along through songs (a lot of which visit my dreams too), symbols and dreams. Thanks for the beautiful hub!

Thanks for your tip regarding the Camus book, maven101! Sounds like an interesting read.

I'm 33 and never really thought about this life after death thing before, but I'm now convinced.

You can never convince skepticals regarding life after death.question.I personally know a person who had died whole the nightand the following morning he suddenly woke and told that some other person of the same name was to die. Later people confirmed his version. My own grand maternal mother died after a while she revived and told that it was not her turn but of her daughter. Before her disclouser our mother sister was passed away. so spekticals canot be covinced leave them alone.

maricarbo, i think i have gotten a few of these messages but im not sure. my mom had a friend before i was born who died in a car accident. he was type 1 diabetic. he ended up having a low in the car and crashed killing him instantly. i have been told what he looked like. but anyways, i have dreams where i see a person who looks like his description. he is just standing to the side but i always looks like he is trying to say something. ive tried to talk with my mom about it but she tears up if i do and runs off. im not sure what i need to do.

To Reg. Not only are these stories true, but they give hope to people who have lost children, parents, etc.

Advice, above is the address line: use it.

There is also an arrow pointing to your left, use it.

You can also not visit this site again, do that.

I think we have to be careful here. Firstly, i am a great believer that people can believe what they want and what gives them comfort. I guess i am a little more cautious around the use of words, particularly in this area.

Firstly, this isn't 'Unrefutable'or irrefutable evidence. Firstly i agree there are a lot of fakes out there. Let me justify the point. A psychic stating, 'you know the message' could mean anything and is a pretty woolly statement. I would have been more convinced if the message had been - i couldn't pull your feet. It exists. But anyway, that still wouldn't have been irrefutable and here's why.

If a psychic was to state the latter message, there are 3 possibilities (both pretty impressive)

Option 1 - the psychic is actually communicating with the entity.

Option 2 - the psychic is able to pull information from the person who she is doing the reading for.

Option 3 - there is insider information that the psychic has - she is a fake.

Now, to me, the first 2 are beyond our understanding however, there is no way to actually understand which one it is, in this case. Option 3 is a no brainer..

The only way to prove it is to have a pact in which a message is written by each individual, locked away so that each person doesn't know the message and after death, have the psychic relay the message (at that time the message is then opened). If the messages match, this is as solid as the proof could get.

For me, that would be irrefutable evidence.

It's always a tricky one, as for those who have never had these experiences, and with so many frauds about, it can be hard to take in what people are telling you. Again, people will believe what they believe however even going to the lengths that i have stated, skeptics will still believe that it is rigged. Personally i would like to see this done and recorded in a way as to remove the element of mistrust.

apache 4 years ago

i can assure you there is life after death on this earth, i have traveled the other side many times before, however i must warn you that to call the other side will have harsh reciprocation's to those living close to you. the story goes , leave all that is unfinished because it was to be unfinished. A simple way of looking at this is what happens when all living die, does living end???? answer NO ( you cant change the words meaning nor its truth, living remains living and death remains death. so how do we amuse life after death, simple, we just said it LIFE AFTER DEATH..

iamihop 4 years ago

Amazing what people can convince themselves of if they want to, despite an utter lack of concrete evidence in either direction. Did this "seer" say, 'oh look, it's Tere. She's here to say there's an afterlife.' No, of course not; that would be too easy. "She couldn't communicate with her," is what you would probably argue. But then how did she know that you'd know the message already? There had to be some communication. Follow that up with the various statements about the way that spirits can or cannot behave, such as "when you're a spirit, you can project any form that you want to."

This is precisely the kind of illogical nonsense (stated as absolute and obvious fact) that I detest. What, did dear Tere come back and tell you that's how it is? Or maybe God appeared in a burning bush and let you know?

Let me simplify things: you all are desperate to invent an understanding of something that we inherently cannot understand. It is a response to the pain of loss and the fear of the unknown. There is a much simpler solution than creating answers: accept the lack thereof. Once you get used to that, it's much easier to take life and death as they come, to cherish the time you have, and to not worry about what cannot be known.

Why am I even on this site? I was trying to find ways to improve a loop in Matlab did I get here?

I read the story with no surprise, as a child I have always seen things that could not be explained. To this day I still do love ones come to you in many different forms, my mom came to me as a full image of a healthier self in her rocking chair, in a bad time in my life down the road some more she came as a bright white light at the end of the bed which I accepted as her without doubt, lately she comes as butterfly's which was something she loved. Just except and stop questioning or looking and you may see, or hear they come in music boxes toys playing and not on, and many other ways the more accepting you are the more you will see as I have, To those looking for confirmation I will send my thoughts to you hoping you do receive the confirmation you are looking for in any form, Sissy

Someone obviously told the 'psychic' the details of the pact and what the old lady looked like to give you closure and comfort. Why are people so gullible?

lespaul64 4 years ago

To the disbelievers, I'll share some of my experiences. First off, I'm an engineer and a scientist. Everything I do needs data, rationale, and proof for it to be accepted in my job and my life. It's just who I am. I did not believe in the formal religions growing up. And with that, I can absolutely, without a doubt, say that I am fortunate enough to have had the experiences since then that there is unequivicol proof of life after death. I don't claim to know exactly what it is, but there is zero doubt that it exists. The most recent story (today), which is one of about 20 stories. One of my best friends from work passed away of a massive heart attack absolutely suddenly. He was amazing and I was devasted. So today, I decided to go to a spiritualist church. Part of the church service is a message circle, where mediums give messages to the audience. Before the service started, a woman approached me and said I am so sorry about your friend that just passed of a massive hearth attack. She descirbed him to the "T". During the message circle, the pastor calls on me and says "your friend from work is next to you. Oh, he's had a major heart problem. He was buried with a Navy burial. Don't worry, he'll stand by your side at work whenever you need him". My friend was buried with a Navy burial. He was always by my side at work. I never met these people in my life. They asked me no questions and were dead accurate. This is one story (and not even the most amazing of them) of about 20. For those who haven't been blessed to experience it, I get the skepticism. But know that despite your lack of experience, it absolutely exists.

Nothing proven here. A "psychic" describes an old lady without giving a name. You fill in the blanks and say it's whoever you want/hope it to be. Typical mediumistic deception: give a description that could fit 100 people you know, and let the client fill in the blanks. Quite disappointing though, if it is true. Apparently, when you pass over, you're still an old fart who needs a cane to walk. So, much for getting a better model of body.

Guys, I needed to post this true story to fullfill my end of the pact. I promised I would get it out to as many people as possible. And, I am doing just that. I do want to fullfill my end of the pact. If you are a skeptic and do not believe my story, I am so sorry that you are so negative. I already told you that this happened when I was 12 and after Tere had died, and nothing happened, I totally forgot about how could the psychic lady had known about Tere or the pact beforehand? I had told nobody about it. The only one who knew about the pact was my mother. The incident totally convinced ME that there is an afterlife. If you are incredulous, that is YOUR problem! I am totally convinced that there is a spiritual realm where we go when we die. Period! I feel no need to try to convince you. Like I said, I had to post this true story to fulfill my end of the pact. I am just glad that I am in a good position to do it with the Internet and our modern marvels, computers and iphones, because I know that if it had been the other way around, me dying first, poor Tere would have had an awful time with it, having to notify people by antiquated handwitten methods, or by calling people on the phone, or even by writing a book about it, but nothing like today's Web and the Internet. God made it easy for me!

woman you got duped there is no spirit or spirit world or nonsense like as much as i wish there was it just makes no sense. has this psychic ever seen the spirit of a dinosaur or the spirit of any animal for that matter? how come they only see humans in the spirit world and ok if you say humans have souls and animals don't ok ill buy that but how come she's ever seen the spirit of other intelligent life else where in the universe? its just not real as much as i hope and wish it is its not.

I was raised catholic & used to believe the same. My dad died 5 years ago & left my mom penniless. If there is life after death I know he would talk to God to help us not be homeless! We barely have food to eat by week two of each month. If my dad could see he would cry

Hi Guys. When I was just six or so, I went to bed one night and woke up with the funny old man next door kissing me and saying goodbye! I noticed he was like a clear white fog and I could see through him. When he bent to kiss me.. part of his body disappeared into my mother's form lying beside me. Being a child I was not alarmed or afraid. The next morning I saw a long black car outside next door. My mother told me that my beloved Mr. McKenzely had died during the night. Ummm..

I was just out of law school and called my mother to tell her I had the truck packed and would be there in about 4 hours. On the back road from D.C. to Virginia... I suddenly saw a brilliant flash of golden light and heard my mother's voice say "I gotta go" I jammed on brakes cause I thought my daughter was playing with the truck cab light and because I knew something was very wrong. I had just talked to her .. so how could she be here. I then heard my mother say "I love you.. I gotta go..I love you" then I saw the brilliant golden light move off into the sky and disappear into the sun. At the next Gas Station I called her house and found out she had just been pronounced dead a few minutes ago by Paramedics. My mother and I had developed a strong bond and I believe she wanted to say her goodbye.

My brother died and when he did, I felt his presence leave the room before they told me. After that, he would do things of mischief like open windows or ring bells when I was supposed to do something important. I could always here him talking saying "get up.. get up" which he did with such a kind spirit.

I feel sad for anyone who has never had an experience or doesn't believe in these happenings. I could tell you several more that have saved my life and kept me out of trouble. Believe, Believe..!
