My Visit from the ‘Other Side’

Have you ever had one of those dreams that felt so real that it was more than a dream?

I had one a few weeks ago, shortly before I got up. It was a strange dream. I was with two men. I seemed to be in some kind of military service. We were in a room and knew that an explosion was imminent and we were about to die. I seemed to believe that I would still exist afterwards.

Seconds later, the explosion came. I felt warmth. No pain! Just a warmth on my skin. Then I was in a bright white place that was filled with soft, warm, white light. I remember noticing that I had no form (body). I was also aware that I was on the ‘other side’ and a little pleased that, even though my body was gone, I was still alive.

Then I heard a female voice whispering to me. It kept saying, over and over again, “Your thoughts create! Your thoughts create! Your thoughts create.” Then it became, “Your thoughts create your world! Your thoughts create your world.” I remember the whisper so clearly. I can hear it now as I write these words.

I learned later that day that my Dad’s aunt Lizzie had died that morning. Might my dream somehow have been a communication from her? I thought so.

I asked my good friend, Kyle Gray. He’s ‘The Angel Whisperer’, a well known, highly accurate Medium, and best selling author of ‘Angel Prayers’.

Kyle asked the angels about my experience. He then told me that, because of my sensitive perception, my soul knew Lizzie was passing and it reminded me that, no matter what we way go, we just return to an ever-present love and peace. He then told me that Lizzie was acknowledging what I’ve known all along, so that I’d have a more personal experience of heaven. He said my mind basically created a scene of going to heaven so I could see that it was all love.

Wow! … was my response. I trust Kyle very much and have been on the receiving end of his astonishing skills of other-worldly communication on more than one occasion. I believe in what he said. It feels right to me.

Some might think that a scientist has no place talking about angels. I would disagree strongly. I do not subscribe to the notion that consciousness is inside the head, nor produced by brain chemistry. Such a notion doesn’t account for the wealth of research that demonstrates correlations between the neural states of people separated by a distance. I believe that consciousness is fundamental to reality and that, in a sense then, everything is animated with consciousness.

In some ways, the brain acts like an aerial that tunes to a frequency, that extracts from reality what you know of as yourself.

My belief is that that just as different shapes, forms, textures and colours of life exist, so different shapes, forms, textures and colours of consciousness exist too, some of which we might interpret or know as angels, guides, or deceased loved ones.

Could my Dad’s aunt have visited me for real? Her consciousness? I believe so. I believe that after her brain ceased to function, her consciousness was no longer identified with her physical body. She was then able to be anywhere and, in my case, she was able to communicate with me.

Fortunately, I ‘heard’ her and appreciate the reminder!

    At last, I found your message a long way down on the page of your email. Thanks.

    I’ve had some very strange experiences, rather than dreams, but never attached a great deal of importance to them; perhaps I should. I have termed these as ‘a knowing’. I’ve dreamt some odd dreams too, but put these down as a night time fling with happenings thru the day, or even days ago.

    My husband , on the other hand, says he knows what it’s like ‘on the other side’, because he’s been there!!! (Not an O. of B.Ex. or near death ex.)

    I’m afraid, that, in spite of more than a half dozen clerics in the family, I can’t go along with any teachings, and have my own thoughts on what it’s all about.

    It would be good to learn that I’m not alone with such ideas, and that such thoughts are entertained by other people, and I would love to know more about it.

    Wow ! David , Thank you so very much for giving me the privilege of you sharing this with me , just made me so happy hearing this from you , i work as a staff nurse for the N.H.S and run a website of things i make as a hobby that help keep my stress levels down , i also suffer from Epilepsy, following a head injury ,amongst other health problem’s but i decided after my diagnosis that the devastating news i received at the time from the Neurologist would not ruin my life but the opposite it enriched it , as during some really bad seizures where i have woken up in RESUS ive been blessed to have paid a visit to the other side ( i got to see hear and feel things i never ever believed possible despite years of nursing training then i also embarked on a level 3 diploma in reflexology to extend my knowledge in the hope that someday ,i believe it is happening already that NHS conventional medicine would look at all of us from a holistic approach also) during my visit to what i can only describe as ‘paradise’ i saw my Dad who passed over in 1974 aged just 39 ,looking fit and well with his own mam my nanna, i was so excited to see them i was trying to speed up the swirling down the white/bright light tunnel where all i could feel was pure LOVE was i frightened NO , i didn’t even at the time remember i had family back here on the earth’s plain , then just as i approached my Beautiful Dad who was and still is my hero smiled and put his hand out ( you know the saying i felt like i had died and gone to heaven) to i thought welcome me but instead he pushed me back and said Dawn it’s not your time, and i descended back so fast onto that bed in RESUS my brain felt in a spin , anyway Dad was right it wasn’t my time ,as my oldest son married and ive now been blessed with a daughter in law who between them have blessed me with 3 beautiful grandchildren one grand daughter and two grandsons Aimee,Thomas & Oliver , they are the very air i breathe they tell me things about my dad that they couldn’t possibly know they have his smile and a multitude of his traits they are a joy to be around , also Dad must have known my mam was going to need me she started to develop Alzheimer’s 4 years ago and sadly passed away in february the 21st this year after developing septicemia my Dad passed in february 3rd 1974 , i had sat at mam’s hospital bedside for 5 days and nights and the staff said her blood result’s and other tests were looking much better and that she was going to be Ok? having qualified in 1977 i had seen many patient’s pass over so i doubted the staff as Mam looked like she was on a different dimension ,anyway they suggested i go home and get some sleep otherwise i may end up ill with a seizure due to basic lack of sleep and stress and my meds being all over the place , i left with this strange feeling about me that i had experienced many times in my life at the time other loved one’s had passed over ,so i wasn’t happy at all about their insistence that i leave so i came away giving mam a kiss and telling her how much i loved her and that i would see her in the morning ,i crawled into my bed exhausted and blubbered like a baby , i have a picture of mam/dads wedding day on my bedside cabinet i looked at dad all teary eyed and i said Dad i know you are coming for mam, i had no sooner drifted off and my telephone rang to say could we all get back to the hospital as quickly as possible as mam had deteriorated , i was in a daze having taken my night time anti convulsants , i am one of 4 siblings two boys two girls in the car speeding up the motorway i said to my older brother Robert mam’s gone he looked at me like i had two heads he is the oldest then me , i said NO i know mam has gone Dad’s been for her i just know , well we got to the ward at 3.35am and mam had passed at 3.25am with none of us present, i sat with her until 7am just babbling about anything and everything feeling crushed as my mam had a fear of dying unlike me who does’nt due to my experience mentioned above , then low and behold the staff said as the death was not expected?? we couldnt have mam back in the chapel of rest as the coroner had been called and rightly so as mam got septicemia from an infected cannulae , anyway strange how things progressed my mam had never ever gone a day without telling me how much she longed for and missed my dad and said no man could hold a light to him, mam was widowed and left with 4 of us at age 38 and she was 79 when she passed in february 41 years after losing our Dad she kept the flame of PURE LOVE alive and never ever dated anyone else now this is where it all goes really surreal we didnt get mam back till march the 1st and the vicar said he couldn’t bury mam until the 6th which was the date she married my dad so the funeral was in the same village church where she wed my dad and it was on the date that would have been their 60th Diamond wedding anniversary ,i am sorry if you think i am rabbiting on here it has helped me greatly to accept the reality that mam is not here in the bodily sense but reassured my great faith that Dad heard me say to him that night i know you are coming and he did and i know that my mam will be at his side from now till the end of time and beyond and i know that when my time comes i will see them both again ,i am crying as i type this , as i miss them beyond words but also feel calm and safe and happy in the knowledge that they are well ,happy still in love and free from pain and probably making up for 41 years of separation ‘Together Forever’ I will leave off now and wish you lots of Love & Light , and a huge thankyou for allowing me the opportunity to share my innermost thoughts . x

    I so believe all that you have said being a medium myself xx

    It is so comforting to know that a scientist may believe in angels, this is so rare in this day and age. Thank you for sharing this experience I do enjoy your newsletters.

    Great that you had this special contact with your aunt.

    like your explanation on the brain being an aerial that tunes to frequency.

    I also had vivid a dream about a year ago in which I met God and angels in heaven. They had shapes and lovely voices, communicated in my native Polish 🙂 I so much loved being ‘there’ that I did not want to return. However God said to me :’ sorry, you still have got a mission to do’ and next sec I was on a tube back here.

    Love your way of thinking, Bestest Regards,

    I had a ‘dream’ exactly like this the other night. But it did not feel like a dream, it was so real and 3d! I dreamt that my husband, who has left me, was in bed with me and we were talking while I was stroking his stomach. I was aware that I was dreaming and knew if I opened my eyes he would disappear, but I could feel his skin and the warmth of his body and his arm around me. He turned to look at me in the eyes and smiled, it was so intense and real. This happened the night that he sent me a letter saying that he had no hope for a reconciliation between us.

    I was so interested to hear of your experience as I too believe that when we dream of those who have passed that they are indeed visiting us to offer support and love in our difficult times and other times to share our joys and to let us know they are still involved in our lives, all be it at a distance, but accessable if we believe so. I have often dreamt of situations that have actually happened at a later date. Keep up the good work I do enjoy your outlook on life and send best wishes to you and your loved ones.

    Hi David,

    I’m very interested in the study you mentioned in the interview on Source about the MRI scanner showing that the husband and wife were connected. I haven’t been able to find the article online. Would it be possible for you to provide the title?

    Many thanks

    Thanks for being the most interesting, intelligent and insightful exponent of the mind body connection – science meets spirit. My favourite speaker at Hay House World Summit.

    You’re spot on..I have total recall of past lives and remember each death as well as life..we are the mind or consciousness not the body..this consciousness is electrolyte hence why the brain is mostly water as a conductor once we die the Consciousness is released and we awaken like from a dream

    very nice and wonderful experience. God bless you for sharing this.

    I have had an experience where I dreamt I’d had a car crash but left my body before the impact. I remember saying so this is dying Cool. I floated up and just merged into the universe. I was a bit miffed when this all reversed and I went back into my body and woke up.

    Hi David, thanks for sharing this. I have had numerous conscious dreams myself, as well as fully conscious o.o.b.e.’s. I love your work and I am remembering my own ‘calling’ regarding this subject and the ‘Oneness’ of it all. I am not sure how to get started.
    best regards

    Dear David

    Thank you for sharing your experience I appreciate it very much coming from you the Scientist talking about the other side – I also believe that I am being guided by the other side in my aim to help people by starting my own business and I know it is coming from guidance from the other side as there is no one in my physical life now that has set up their own business. Continue your good teachings. Best Wishes Janie
