Physicists Send Particles Of Light Into The Past, Proving Time Travel Is Possible

Single particles of light (photons) to simulate quantum particles travelling through time were just used by scientists from the University of Queensland, Australia. They showed that one photon can pass through a wormhole and then interact with its older self.

The study of closed time like curves (CTC’s) provides valuable insight into particles that can loop back on themselves, breaking free of linear time.

“One aspect of general relativity that has long intrigued physicists is the relative ease with which one can find solutions to Einstein’s field equations that contain closed timelike curves (CTCs)—causal loops in space–time that return to the same point in space and time.”

The Science

Closed timelike curves are a necessary concept to understand this experiment.

CTCs are used to simulate powerful gravitational fields, like the ones produced by a spinning black hole, that could theoretically (based on Einstein’s theory of general relativity), warp the fabric of existence so that space-time bends back on itself. This creates a CTC, almost like a pathway to travel back through time.

The source of time travel speculation lies in the fact that our best physical theories seem to contain no prohibitions on traveling backward through time. The feat should be possible based on Einstein’s theory of general relativity, which describes gravity as the warping of spacetime by energy and matter. An extremely powerful gravitational field, such as that produced by a spinning black hole, could in principle profoundly warp the fabric of existence so that spacetime bends back on itself. This would create a “closed timelike curve,” or CTC, a loop that could be traversed to travel back in time. (source)

Experimenting With CTC’s

Single particles of light (photons) to simulate quantum particles travelling through time were just used by scientists from the University of Queensland, Australia. They showed that one photon can pass through a wormhole and then interact with its older self. Their findings were published in Nature Communications. 

Much of their simulation revolved around investigating the “grandfather paradox,” a hypothetical scenario in which someone uses a CTC to travel back through time to murder her own grandfather, thus preventing her own later birth.

The Grandfather Paradox in Quantum Physics

Instead of a human being traversing a CTC to kill her ancestor, imagine that a fundamental particle goes back in time to flip a switch on the particle-generating machine that created it. If the particle flips the switch, the machine emits a particle—the particle—back into the CTC; if the switch isn’t flipped, the machine emits nothing.


New Mind-blowing Experiment Confirms That Reality Doesn’t Exist If You Are Not Looking at It

According to a well-known theory in quantum physics, a particle’s behavior changes depending on whether there is an observer or not. It basically suggests that reality is a kind of illusion and exists only when we are looking at it. Numerous quantum experiments were conducted in the past and showed that this indeed might be the case.

Now, physicists at the Australian National University have found further evidence for the illusory nature of reality. They recreated the John Wheeler’s delayed-choice experiment and confirmed that reality doesn’t exist until it is measured, at least on the atomic scale.

Thought-provoking findings

Some particles, such as photons or electrons, can behave both as particles and as waves. Here comes a question of what exactly makes a photon or an electron act either as a particle or a wave. This is what Wheeler’s experiment asks: at what point does an object ‘decide’?

The results of the Australian scientists’ experiment, which were published in the journal Nature Physics, show that this choice is determined by the way the object is measured, which is in accordance with what quantum theory predicts.

It proves that measurement is everything. At the quantum level, reality does not exist if you are not looking at it,” said lead researcher Dr. Andrew Truscott in a press release.

The experiment

The original version of John Wheeler’s experiment proposed in 1978 involved light beams being bounced by mirrors. However, it was difficult to implement it and get any conclusive results due to the level of technological progress back then. Now, it became possible to successfully recreate the experiment by using helium atoms scattered by laser light.

Dr. Truscott’s team forced a hundred of helium atoms into a state of matter called Bose-Einstein condensate. After this, they ejected all the atoms until there was only one left.

Then, the researchers used a pair of laser beams to create a grating pattern, which would scatter an atom passing through it just like a solid grating scatters light. Thus, the atom would either act as a particle and pass through one arm or act as a wave and pass through both arms.

Thanks to a random number generator, a second grating was then randomly added in order to recombine the paths. This was done only after the atom had already passed the first grate.

As a result, the addition of the second grating caused interference in the measurement, showing that the atom had traveled both paths, thus behaving like a wave. At the same time, when the second grating was not added, there was no interference and the atom appeared to have traveled only one path.

The results and their interpretation

As the second grating was added only after the atom had passed through the first one, it would be reasonable to suggest that the atom hadn’t yet ‘decided’ whether it was a particle or a wave before the second measurement.

According to Dr. Truscott, there may be two possible interpretations of these results. Either the atom ‘decided’ how to behave based on the measurement or a future measurement affected the photon’s past.

The atoms did not travel from A to B. It was only when they were measured at the end of the journey that their wave-like or particle-like behavior was brought into existence,” he said.

Thus, this experiment adds to the validity of the quantum theory and provides new evidence to the idea that reality doesn’t exist without an observer. Perhaps further research in the field of quantum physics and more thought-provoking evidence like this will completely change our understanding of reality one day.

The soul , multiple universes and quantum computer

What is the connection between the soul , the multiple worlds theory and quantum computer?

quantum worlds

The multiple universes theory is controversial, but some well-known scientists, physicists and astrophysicists tend to agree with the existence of parallel worlds which raises the possibility of multiple universes. Multiverse multi (multi-universe) is the so-called scientific concept, which they believe.

The first such possibility was raised by science fiction writer Jules declared in 1895 in his story “The door in the wall”. After 62 years, this idea was developed by Hugh Everett his graduate thesis at Princeton University. He claims that at any moment the universe is divided into numerous similar cases and the next, universes “newborn” and in some of these world you can be present.

According to Everett; When we make some choices, immediately one universe splits into two with different versions of the results.

In 1980, Andrei Linde, a scientist in Lebedev Institute of Physics, developed the theory of multiple universes. He is currently a professor at Stanford University.

Linda explained: space consists of many areas of inflation, led to similar areas, and these, in turn, produce many more fields, and so on to infinity. Universes, are spaced. They are not aware of it. But they represent parts of the physical universe.

The fact that our universe is not alone supported by the data obtained from the Hubble Telescope. Scientists have created the most accurate map of the cosmic background radiation, which remained since the creation of our universe. They also found that the universe has a lot of dark niches represented by several large holes and gaps.

Theoretical physicist Laura Mersini-Houghton from the University of North Carolina with her colleagues argues deviations of the cosmic background radiation exist due to the fact that our universe is influenced by other locations exists nearby. Holes and gaps are a direct result of the attacks on us by the neighboring universes.

The Quantum world and the Soul connection

quantum mindSo, there are plenty of other locations where our soul can pass after death, according to the theory of neo biocentrism. But does the soul exist?

Professor Stuart Hameroff of the University of Arizona has no doubts about the existence of an eternal soul. He recently announced that he has found evidence proving that consciousness exist after the physical death of the body.

According to Hameroff, the human brain is a perfect quantum computer and soul or consciousness is simply information stored at the quantum level. It can be passed, after the death of the body; Quantum information represented by the consciousness merges with our universe where there is no time limit. The Biocentrism expert – Lanza proves that the soul travels to a different universe.

Quantum-Universe-World-Intelligent-DesignSir Roger Penrose, a famous British physicist and expert in Mathematics from Oxford, supports this theory, and is also found traces of contact with other universes. Together, scientists who develop the quantum theory explains the phenomenon of consciousness. They believe they have found the carriers of consciousness, the elements accumulate over a lifetime, and after the death of the body are “drain” the mind elsewhere. These elements are located in protein-based microtubules (neural microtubules), which had previously been attributed to a simple role of strengthening communication and transport in the living cell. Based on their structure, microtubules are best suited to function as carriers of quantum properties within the brain. This is mainly because they are able to maintain the quantum states for a long time, which means that they can function as elements of a quantum computer.

My personal OBE (out of body) experiences

OBE ( out of body experiance )

out of body experiance

Many asked me to write about my personal experience with OBE ( out of body experience ) so here it is 🙂

First I would like to say that I did it for experiment and to prove, we all have souls and there is life beyond our physical experience. Though I believe in the spiritual world, I am very skeptical in my nature so I must verify anything that interest me and not just believe it.

So with this in mind, I red about OBE in the late 90’s, red about it but never had time to try it, when I moved to Canada in 1997, I had more time to explore the esoteric information, so I started to read a lot about this, include original Kabbalah books in Hebrew and Aramaic, Hebrew is my native language but I had to learn Aramaic to read some of the books and so I did, reading the old Kabbalah books in its original source, gave me lot of insights, that I could never get in any other way, it’s hard to explain the experience to someone who didn’t try it but it is like someone is talking to you in your own life level, in away you can understand the spiritual dimensions, in your own eyes. In later times when I reread the same text from the Zohar ( the main Kabbalah book ) for example, I could understand more things, so those books are written in the language of symbolism, as it is the language of the souls, like in dreams each one will understand his dreams with his own symbolism.

Me in my front home garden in Canada

Me in my front home garden in Canada

I didn’t just read kabbalah books, I read almost all the main religious books as the Torah, the Jewish bible and the Christian bible, the Quran and Hadith as well as few non canonical books, buddhists and hinduism books as well. there is fine line connecting all the religions. I found out they all talk about love but teaching fear, the fear of death and after life, if you are a sinner in this life. So this was a very strong trigger to get me out of the books, into this spiritual world my self, yes I can’t forget the fear I had, but the curiosity was stronger, and so I went and looked into all the different methods to find out by my self, how to get out of my body. I didn’t wished to have NDE ( near death experience ) for this 😉 so for me OBE was the only real way to do it.

There are few methods that I tried but I will not go into this, as it didn’t worked out for me and was totally losing time. What I will explain is the only way I was able to do it.

So here it is: First I was able to do it only in the mornings, after good night sleeping ( other way you simply fall to sleep ) and in total relaxed and soundless room, my bed room was perfect for it when all was closed and no one was at home, I was working from my home when I lived in Canada ( website designer freelancer ) so I could find some time in the morning for this experiments.

So how my OBE was done?

When you are in total relaxed room with no sounds you lay on the bed and then start relaxing all your body, and I mean all ! From the fingers of your legs up to your ears every muscle must be in total relax, even the mouth should be left open you should be like a dead person, just breathing slowly and deeply and feel nothing, this take like 15 to 20 minutes to achieve.

When you are in this situation, you should start empty your mind, clean and block any thought that will pop up… this is even harder to do… but possible, with training you must get into total emptiness of your mind, with total relaxed body. This may take another 15 to 20 minutes.

If you passed those 2 stages, you will start feel vibrations and noise inside your brain, its like from your ears but its not, its inside your brain, wissel and vibrations like electricity between your ears, you should not go into panic and stay with it for 5 to 10 minutes, again without thinking or moving your body…

If you can do this part, you are ready to get out…

My first time, when I got out, was when I lay down and then lifted my self as if I would lift my self to sit on the bed, but I did it strongly and flipped over hitting the ventilator over my bed, while I was flipped ( if you imagine it ) I was able to see my body on the bed but looking from the legs side, I got really panicked from this, if someone had ever death fear, when your body frost and your face become all white, it is how I felt. I was sure I just died… and so I start swimming back into my body and woke up jumping and sitting on my bed all wet from cold sweat. It was the most frightening experience of my life so far.. I must admit..

How ever this got me the answers I needed, that I do have a soul and there is some sort of life out of the body…
My next experience took lot of time to achieve, noises, nerves, phone calls, all kind of disturbing events, prevent me to get into the vibrations mode, but eventually I was able to get it… however this time I didn’t want to hit the vent again, so I decide to flip over to the floor… and it is exactly what happened, I flipped but did not stay on the floor, I went inside, deep into the ground… it was dark and I could smell and taste the soil the rotten trees parts, it wasn’t good smell or atmosphere and I didn’t want to be stuck in it, so I try to get out, but this woke me up. So this experience taught me that we can pass matter while we are out of the body and we do feel smell and taste… even stronger than inside the body…

In my third experiment, I wanted from start to prove that I am not dreaming or have illusions, so I decided in advance, I’ll get out of the house and look to the cars numbers parking out side and will try to remember at least one car number, while I’m out of my body, then to go out and verify it, and so it is exactly what I did, this time I delicately got up for not jump to far, after I was in the vibrational stage, and was able to actually walk out vie the wall fall/fly down ( my bed room was in the second level ) and walk/fly in the street to a black car on the other side of the street, I think it was Honda or Acura I saw the symbol from the back and I looked at the number of the car, but couldn’t remember all, so I memorised only the 4 last numbers and simply decided to wake up, and on the spot, I was back in my bed with open eyes… I immediately got out home almost sliding down the stairs and in no time I was on the other side of the street looking at the black car 4 last numbers, indeed I knew them…

Well this was the ultimate proof I needed , I knew I wasn’t dreaming or imagining anything of it, this is total fact, there is life out of our body more over our memories aren’t in our brain… and we can fly…

Again took me few weeks to achieve the fourth OBE, mainly because of stress, this last event, totally changed my own perspectives about life, I wasn’t afraid any more about death, but actually was very afraid about the life it self.. If there is after life, then why we are in life ? Ok I knew from the religious books they all talk about it, we need to be good, but nothing in the experiments I did, point into this, there was simply life out of the body.. I had to go deeper or far inside this other side… and one cold morning ( about 6 months after my first attempt ) while under my blanket, I did it, I decide that this time, I’ll go far as I can to find out what is it really out there… So this time after around 10 minutes of vibrations and strong whistling sound in my brain, I didn’t just got out I jumped out of my body, up and out to the air via the roof, I went high maybe 100 meters up in the air and could see the houses down but then I flipped and looked up and was shocked to see light not the normal sky I used to see, it was strong warm light but not the sunlight, totally other thing, I kept moving into it flying upper and then started feeling Love, strong feeling of love, I had never felt in my life such feeling, it was love feeling that noone can feel in life and its took me like a magnet I wanted to be part of it, but then I was able to see something dark coming fast from the right side, I stopped and was afraid to look at it, but could see from the side of my eyes like a dark man shape, just beside me and this thing, communicated with me this ” stop don’t move any more and don’t ever try it again, if you wish to live, you are not ready yet ” immediately after I was back in my bed under my blanket, shaking like a baby… This was another shocking event that I’ll never forget… and it taught me more, I now knew there is LOVE force surrounding earth and there are angels or what ever you may call it, that guard it and us, from go into this place, if it isnt our time. So from this I knew what we have to do while we are in life, cause I was so nothing over there beside that enormous love force and understood that I wasn’t good enough, to be in such environment, I must be a better person, much much better…

After this experience, I never tried OBE again, cause I want to live and become the best I can be, before I’ll pass into this spiritual world. This event totally changed me and I kept on learning everything I could, about the spiritual world and kept trying till this day to find ways for verify the information, indeed there are many belief systems and it is hard to come up with “scientific” methods to prove them but I did try to find ways and till today it is now over 17 years I am doing it, while concentrating on one particular field – LOVE… and on this I’ll write in another article 🙂 thank you for reading this and I hope it may help those who need proves ( as me ) that we all do have souls and there is life out of our body and after we die we go there for sure.. and yes the power outside earth is LOVE unconditional LOVE…

I wrote a website about the angels and the spiritual world if you wish to learn more

Quantum Physics Proves That Life After Death is Real

 The concept of life after death has been a mainstay of most spiritual traditions worldwide for millennia  only recently coming under fire in Western societies as a result of the dominance of the materialist/scientific worldview that came to prominence in the 21st century.  However, quantum physics is now challenging this assumption and is proving that consciousness is not bound or limited to the body. 

As humans, we tend to identify so strongly with the material plane and the body itself that when it dies, we believe our awareness and consciousness dies with it because we do not see these two aspects as independent of each other.  And yet, just the opposite is true.  Consciousness inhabits the body like a driver inhabits a car.  The driver can come and go at will (dreaming states) and when the car eventually breaks down, it does not mean that the driver dies as well.  When our bodies die, or rather break down as in the car/driver analogy, our consciousness (the driver) simply leaves to find another body (car). 

Quantum Physics has reached a point where the mechanics of the universe, and hence consciousness, is understood to such a degree that it is finally being proven that life after death exists because consciousness is eternal and knows no bounds.  The article below is a fascinating exploration into this line of thinking and the groundbreaking evidence that supports it.  In every sense, we are witnessing the reconciliation of science and spirituality.

Quantum Theory Proves That Consciousness Moves to Another Universe After Death

A book titled “Biocentrism: How Life and Consciousness Are the Keys to Understanding the Nature of the Universe“, published in the USA, has stirred up the Internet, because it contained a notion that life does not end when the body dies, and it can last forever. The author of this publication, scientist Robert Lanza has no doubts that this is possible.

Beyond time and space

Lanza is an expert in regenerative medicine and scientific director of Advanced Cell Technology Company. Before he has been known for his extensive research which dealt with stem cells, he was also famous for several successful experiments on cloning endangered animal species.

With Quantum Physics mechanics and astrophysics. This explosive mixture has given birth to the new theory of biocentrism, which the professor has been preaching ever since.

The theory implies that death simply does not exist. It is an illusion which arises in the minds of people. It exists because people identify themselves with their body. They believe that the body is going to perish, sooner or later, thinking their consciousness will disappear too. In fact, consciousness exists outside of constraints of time and space. It is able to be anywhere: in the human body and outside of it. That fits well with the basic postulates of quantum mechanics science, according to which a certain particle can be present anywhere and an event can happen according to several, sometimes countless, ways.

Lanza believes that multiple universes can exist simultaneously. These universes contain multiple ways for possible scenarios to occur. In one universe, the body can be dead. And in another it continues to exist, absorbing consciousness which migrated into this universe.

This means that a dead person while traveling through the same tunnel ends up not in hell or in heaven, but in a similar world he or she once inhabited, but this time alive. And so on, infinitely.

Multiple worlds

This hope-instilling, but extremely controversial theory by Lanza has many unwitting supporters, not just mere mortals who want to live forever, but also some well-known scientists. These are the physicists and astrophysicists who tend to agree with existence of parallel worlds and who suggest the possibility of multiple universes. Multiverse (multi-universe) is a so-called scientific concept, which they defend. They believe that no physical laws exist which would prohibit the existence of parallel worlds.

The first one was a science fiction writer H.G. Wells who proclaimed in 1895 in his story “The Door in the Wall”.  And after 62 years, this idea was developed by Hugh Everett in his graduate thesis at the Princeton University. It basically posits that at any given moment the universe divides into countless similar instances. And the next moment, these “newborn” universes split in a similar fashion. In some of these worlds you may be present: reading this article in one universe, or watching TV in another.

The triggering factor for these multiplying worlds is our actions, explained Everett. If we make some choices, instantly one universe splits into two with different versions of outcomes.

In the 1980s, Andrei Linde, scientist from the Lebedev’s Institute of physics, developed the theory of multiple universes. He is now a professor at Stanford University.

Linde explained: Space consists of many inflating spheres, which give rise to similar spheres, and those, in turn, produce spheres in even greater numbers, and so on to infinity. In the universe, they are spaced apart. They are not aware of each other’s existence. But they represent parts of the same physical universe.

The fact that our universe is not alone is supported by data received from the Planck space telescope. Using the data, scientists have created the most accurate map of the microwave background, the so-called cosmic relic background radiation, which has remained since the inception of our universe. They also found that the universe has a lot of dark recesses represented by some holes and extensive gaps.

Theoretical physicist Laura Mersini-Houghton from the North Carolina University with her colleagues argue: the anomalies of the microwave background exist due to the fact that our universe is influenced by other universes existing nearby. And holes and gaps are a direct result of attacks on us by neighboring universes.

Soul quanta

So, there is abundance of places or other universes where our soul could migrate after death, according to the theory of neo-biocentrism. But does the soul exist?

Professor Stuart Hameroff from the University of Arizona has no doubts about the existence of eternal soul. As recently as last year, he announced that he has found evidence that consciousness does not perish after death.

According to Hameroff, the human brain is the perfect quantum computer and the soul or consciousness is simply information stored at the quantum level. It can be transferred, following the death of the body; quantum information represented by consciousness merges with our universe and exist there indefinitely. The biocentrism expert Lanza proves that the soul migrates to another universe. That is the main difference from his other colleagues.

Sir Roger Penrose, a famous British physicist and expert in mathematics from Oxford, supports this theory, and he has also found traces of contact with other universes. Together, the scientists are developing quantum theory to explain the phenomenon of consciousness. They believe that they found carriers of consciousness, the elements that accumulate information during life, and after death of the body they “drain” consciousness somewhere else. These elements are located inside protein-based microtubules (neuronal microtubules), which previously have been attributed a simple role of reinforcement and transport channeling inside a living cell. Based on their structure, microtubules are best suited to function as carriers of quantum properties inside the brain. That is mainly because they are able to retain quantum states for a long time, meaning they can function as elements of a quantum computer.

Scientific evidence of life after death continued to rise

Many popular religions, such as Christianity and Catholicism, refute the idea of reincarnation because it contradicts the belief systems within the theologies which state that there is a place where sinners go after death called “Hell” and a place where the devoted go called “Heaven”. It becoming knowledge that the major religions were used as a control mechanism to manipulate the masses through the use of fear.

It wasn’t until around the 17th century when science began to influence people’s belief systems due to the continued development of the scientific method and advancements with the laws of nature. This system challenged any truth that had no physical proof, and so began science’s dominance in human society. The scientific systems that were established provided many innovations and advancements for the human race, but there were still many questions that could not be answered by the scientific community such as various paranormal phenomena and other impossible ‘miracles’ in nature.

The 20th century ignited a new wave of science that dealt with the exploration of consciousness, psychedelics, and paranormal psychology that collectively aimed to connect the spiritual and scientific communities. Instances of near death and out-of-body experiences during which people were consciously aware, after being declared clinically dead, began to test the hard facts that science had previously established. Today these cases are still widely reported and there are remarkable similarities between the reports all over the world. Dr. Pim van Lommel, a cardiologist in the Netherlands, conducted the largest hospital-based study of NDEs (Near Death Experiences), years after hearing a patient report seeing a tunnel, a light, and beautiful colors and hearing wonderful music during a clinical death in 1969. Dr. Lommel was inspired to research the matter further after hearing a detailed near death experience of someone who had been clinically dead for six minutes.

“After reading [this] book I started to interview my patients who had survived a cardiac arrest. To my great surprise, within two years about fifty patients told me about their NDE…. So, in 1988 we started a prospective study of 344 consecutive survivors of cardiac arrest in ten Dutch hospitals…. 62 patients (18%) reported some recollection of the time of clinical death…. About 50% of the patients with an NDE reported awareness of being dead, or had positive emotions, 30% reported moving through a tunnel, had an observation of a celestial landscape, or had a meeting with deceased relatives. About 25% of the patients with an NDE had an out-of-body experience, had communication with ‘the light’ or observed colours, 13% experienced a life review, and 8% experienced a border…. Patients with a NDE did not show any fear of death, they strongly believed in an afterlife, and their insight in what is important in life had changed: love and compassion for oneself, for others, and for nature. They now understood the cosmic law that everything one does to others will ultimately be returned to oneself: hatred and violence as well as love and compassion. Remarkably, there was often evidence of increased intuitive feelings.” (David Wilcock’s ‘The Synchronicity Key: The Hidden Intelligence Guiding the Universe and You’)

Evidence of life after death continued to rise with the ground-breaking addition of work from hypnotherapists such as Dolores Cannon, Dr. Ian Stevenson and Dr. Michael Newton. With over 50 years of client-session information documenting people’s subconscious memories of past lives and even memories of the time in between two lives, something has to be said about evidence from the doctor’s research supporting reincarnation. Dr. Newton explains that people under hypnosis are not dreaming or hallucinating— and in this state they are not capable of lying. They report whatever they see and hear in their subconscious minds as if everything is a literal observation. While under hypnosis, it is possible for them to misinterpret something they are seeing, but they will not report on anything they do not feel to be the literal truth.

“I also found that it did not matter if a person was an atheist, deeply religious, or believed in any philosophical persuasion in between— once they were in the proper superconscious state of hypnosis, all were consistent in their reports….” Dr. Newton in David Wilcock’s ‘The Synchronicity Key: The Hidden Intelligence Guiding the Universe and You’.

^^ Dr. Michael Newton discussing how past-life regression became a part of his practice^^

Interestingly, Dr. Newton also reported that many clients were hesitant to reveal too much about their time between lives, almost as if they were following a universal code of ethics of sorts, where the information was not supposed to be revealed to mankind for a reason. Over the years Dr. Newton noted similarities among client’s descriptions, ultimately putting together a picture of the process that our soul goes through from the moment we ‘die’ to the moment we are ‘reborn’. These are the stages that he described:

1.) Death and departure – Most clients recall looking down at their body and seeing people mourning over their death. Some people reported staying around their loved ones until after their funeral. During this time clients could feel a pull towards a light, and described a tunnel of sorts to get there.

2.) Gateway to the spirit world – This is the stage where clients report moving through the tunnel and reaching the light at the end. Location of the tunnel varies, as some say it appears right above their bodies and others say they have to travel above the Earth to reach it. After reaching the end of the tunnel clients almost always describe in varying ways beautiful visions, music, and scenery. Dr. Newton suggests that these images are beloved memories from our lives, to help give a feeling of familiarity during such an overwhelming process. Younger souls may feel sad or confused during this time, and it’s reported that their guides will come to assist and comfort.

3.) Homecoming – Here we are greeted by souls who are close to us. They appear as luminous beings who sometimes project faces of people who are still ‘alive’ in a physicality because our souls only project a certain percentage of itself into the physical body, so there will always be a part of the soul existing in the spirit realm. During this stage the soul begins to remember more about the afterlife and also their previous lives, feeling more at ease with the process. Souls which have committed murder or suicide will analyze their actions with their guide and decide on an appropriate path to begin almost immediately.

4.) Orientation – During the orientation stage a soul will shed any regret/doubt/sadness/traumatic memories from its previous life by going through what clients describe as a ‘shower of light’. This renews the soul’s vibrancy and restores it to its original vibration. Afterwards, we discuss with our guide everything that has happened in our life and decide whether or not we lived up to our expectations about how we dealt with those incidents and if the lessons need to be repeated in the next life.

5.) Transition – After we have completed our light shower and have worked through our previous life, we then move onto what most describe as the most breathtaking visions of the entire journey. Here we see a mega-hub of souls at the same stage, all moving through beautiful tunnels of light to their destination. Clients describe this moment as exciting because there is no darkness, just pure light, and we are also on our way to meet up with our soul family, souls who are at a similar stage in their evolution and who we shared lives with. Once we meet up with these souls, we usually compare experiences and learn from each other. These are souls that we keep reincarnating with over and over again, playing various roles with each other such as partners, brothers/sisters, parents, children, etc. Sometimes souls will be present but dimmer and quieter than others, and that is because they are still projecting a physicality at that moment. Another crucial aspect of this stage is to meet a grand counsel that oversees our previous life, going into more detail about the experiences and lessons learned.

6.) Placement – This stage is almost like a school where larger groups of soul families (up to thousands) who incarnate around each other in cycles learn about their previous experiences. Here clients report projecting into specific scenes from their previous life and into other people’s minds to gain a full understanding of the larger picture. Here we feel what others felt to learn how we hurt people in certain situations. This stage can also see the larger soul groups connecting in circles, sharing more ideas, singing, and experiencing other joyful events.

7.) Life selection – During this stage we move to a large sphere of light where we then choose our next life path. We are able to see multiple paths and are able to temporarily project into these lives to feel which one would be most appropriate. We also have the ability to fast forward through the timelines to see critical events that will happen. Some souls will choose greater challenges to experience such as a disability or premature death.

8.) Choosing a new body – This process is a part of the previous life selection stage, but has a separate categorization because it focuses on the physical appearance that we will possess in the next life. This choice vastly affects our experience, so it usually takes much thought as to what it will be. If you were obese in one life, chances are you will choose to be skinny the next, etc.

9.) Preparation and embarkation – After choosing our life path, next we meet up with our soul group, the people who will play roles in the next life, to do extensive planning and to create synchronicities and cues that will guide us throughout our life. Higher-level guides also help to plan out specific symbols we will see or hear that will trigger certain thoughts and actions at specific times. After the synchronicities are decided, we once again meet with a counsel to go over our goals and plans for the next life. This meeting is also to encourage us to have patience, to hold true to our values, to trust ourselves in the midst of difficult situations, and to avoid indulging in anger and negativity.

10.) Rebirth – Clients report traveling back to Earth through the same tunnel they left in, entering the mother’s womb. Until the age of 5, the soul is able to leave the baby’s body to travel and meet up with other souls if it wishes, but will snap back to the body if the baby is in any turmoil. During the first few years the soul will work to integrate its energy with the brain.

This outline of our experience between lives is based on decades worth of research, and like Dr. Newton and other hypnotherapists state, clients under such hypnotic states will never lie and will only describe what they are actually seeing. How is it that almost everyone who undergoes hypnotherapy or who have NDE or OOB experiences, regardless of whatever religious or cultural background they come from, report such similar experiences? Could it be merely coincidental? How is it that people recall these kinds of experiences after being declared clinically dead? These are the sorts of questions that can only be answered by the assimilation of science and spirituality. In the years to come we will witness more of this conjunction between two seemingly unrelated spectrums, which will ultimately bring us closer to an understanding of life, death, and consciousness like never understood before.
