The Secret to Living Your Life with Effortless Ease

posted in: Articles, Blog | 9

Many people are struggling with their lives, often daily. Are you one of them?

My spirit guides have often said our highest and best authority is our own inner guidance, our intuition. It will never lead us astray. We can trust it completely.

Most of us know that. Yet, when faced with challenges and choices, we are often lost and struggling, not knowing which way to turn.

That’s because there are so few influences in our modern world encouraging self-reliance, self-trust and, most importantly, self-love.Read more

Life, Death, and Beyond

posted in: Blog, channeling, life and death | 0

Most humans believe that you come into these bodies and you live for a little while, and you get it right or you don’t, and then you leave—when what is really happening is you are eternal. You never really leave. ~ Abraham with Esther Hicks

Spirit

Most humans fear death. That’s a “fact of life,” as you say.

We say there is never any reason to fear death—if you remember who you are.

And who are you?

Most humans would answer that question with their name, or nationality, or some other limited way of identifying themselves.Read more

What Happens When You Die?

posted in: Blog, channeling, inspiration | 4

Arguably, one of humanity’s greatest questions—and greatest fears—is What happens when you die? Does anyone really know? Is there anything to fear?

Spirit

Those are great questions. Are there any good answers? Definitely, yes!

As Johnny said, our title is arguably the most-asked question among humans. So the first thing we want to address today is the myth of death. For there is no death. Most humans move through their lives fearing something that does not even exist!

We realize what you call “death” seems to be a real experience.Read more

Compassion and Life’s Other Side

posted in: Blog, channeling, compassion | 0

In a recent post we talked about a neighbor who died by euthanasia.

Berna and I ran into her widower the other day. He was, understandably, sad and sorely missing his wife. They’d been together 63 years. And their son had died many years ago when he was just 7 years old.

Berna, a deeply compassionate woman, spoke with him for a few minutes. He did not speak English. So he and Berna spoke in Dutch. I didn’t understand their conversation, but she told me about it later.Read more

Death and Life

One of the most discussed (and most dreaded) topics, especially in today’s world, is death. Berna and I actually enjoy talking about it. If we understand what death really is, there’s nothing to fear.

Spirit

As Johnny and Berna said, death is nothing to fear. Most humans do not see that. The conventional view is, first, there is life. And then second, inevitably, there is death.

We’ve said this many times over many years. But we’ll say it again: There is no death.Read more

Beyond Death

On one of the popular social discussion websites, a user asked what comes next after death. The answers varied all over the place. Here are a few of the more interesting ones:

  • Our energy moves on.
  • No need to fear.
  • Isn’t this reincarnation?
  • Nothing.
  • The great nothing.
  • You become fertilizer.

So what really does happen to us after we die physically?

Spirit

Many of your religious and spiritual traditions tell you death is nothing to fear. And yet humans, nearly without exception, fear death.Read more

Going Home

posted in: Blog, channeling, life and death | 2

I’m not a country music fan. But there is one hauntingly beautiful song I first heard years ago. The title was “Bringing Mary Home.”

The song tells the story of a man driving down a lonely country road on a dark and stormy night. A little girl suddenly shows up in his headlights. He stops and she gets in the back seat. She explains, “My name is Mary. Please won’t you take me home?”

He did take her home. But when they arrived at her house, she had vanished.Read more

The Power of Self-Love

posted in: Blog, channeling, life purpose | 2

I have no political convictions nor any interest in politics. However, one politician I’ve long admired is former US President Jimmy Carter.

President Carter once said, “…I’ve become convinced that the things that matter most are the things that you can’t see—the love you share with others, your inner purpose, your comfort with who you are. (emphasis added)

Spirit

The main problem with your modern world is love—that is, the lack of it. Especially the lack of self-love.

We realize most, if not all, of you were never really taught the truth about love.Read more

Easter Sunday

Easter Sunday new life

Tomorrow, various traditions around the world will observe Easter Sunday. What is Easter? Here’s Spirit’s perspective.

Spirit

The religious cultures many of you have experienced have misled you on the true meaning of Easter.

You were taught Jesus suffered and died an agonizing death on the cross—all to atone for your “sins.”

We realize what we’re saying here will certainly be controversial among some, perhaps even blasphemous.

But Jesus did not die for your sins. He never had any intention of doing that.Read more

Judgement After Death

posted in: Blog, channeling, life and death | 4

 

The only way you will ever live fully in the visible world is to acknowledge the reality of the invisible world. ~ Spirit

As humans with limited vision, we often ask ourselves, “Will I face judgement after death?” Spirit’s answer, below, likely will sound harsh to some. But the message is clear.

Spirit

Many of you, including Johnny, grew up in deceptive, manipulative religious cultures. You learned to fear God, to fear Satan, to fear life, to fear death. Above all, you learned to fear judgement after death.Read more

Victory Over Death

posted in: Blog, channeling, life and death | 6

victory-over-death

(Death) is a condition that we have brought upon ourselves so that we may pass into a greater condition with greater possibilities. ~ Life and Teaching of the Masters of the Far East

Our title today, Victory Over Death, may sound ridiculous to some folks. After all, isn’t death the ultimate victor, the winner in this game of life? Don’t all things end in death?

And, as A Course in Miracles says, “Where there is death, peace is impossible.”Read more

Euthanasia: Blessing or Bloodbath?

posted in: Blog, channeling, life and death | 6

old age-dementia-euthanasia

I know the image above is grim, and perhaps offensive to some folks. But a fact of physical life, regardless of our spiritual or religious beliefs (or lack of them), is death is inevitable.

A Euthanasia Story

Not long ago, a dear lifelong friend told me her brother had been diagnosed with a painful, fatal ailment. He didn’t have long to live.

They live in an area where euthanasia is legal and socially acceptable. So the brother, who was mentally competent almost to the end, chose euthanasia.Read more

I know beyond the shadow of a doubt that there is no death the way we understood it. The body dies, but not the soul. ~ Dr. Elisabeth Kubler-Ross

We received some deeply moving comments on last week’s post, Life and Death. It’s obviously a subject of universal interest , as sooner or later, it touches us all.

Teresa, one of our readers, sent us her thoughts on the passing of her grandfather. With her permission, we’re publishing her touching story this week.Read more

Conquer Your Fear of Death and Know You are Immortal

Millions long for immortality who don’t know what to do with themselves on a rainy Sunday afternoon. ~ Susan Ertz, British author

old-man-woman-mortal-immortal

Would you want to live forever? The quest for physical immortality seems to be consuming more and more people today. Our planet appears to be plunged into deep confusion and chaos. Why, then, would anyone want to live in that for endless years?

Spirit

We’ve spoken before about the chaos engulfing the planet and all living beings on it.Read more

Thoughts On Life and Death

There is no death because what God created shares His life. There is no death because an opposite to God does not exist. ~ A Course in Miracles

life-death-eternity

As some of you may know, I just returned to Wyoming from a family funeral in New York. I don’t mean to sound irreverent, but we had fun and laughed a lot.

It reminded me of another family funeral long ago, for my cousin Giuseppe. Giuseppe died at a relatively young age. As a typical Italian immigrant family, we were all very close.Read more

What Can You Expect at Death?

posted in: Blog, channeling, life and death | 18

Miracles enable you to heal the sick and raise the dead because you made sickness and death yourself, and can therefore abolish both. ~ A Course in Miracles

angel-guiding-souls-home-death

According to some studies, the two things most folks fear are public speaking and death. We can avoid public speaking, but apparently not death. Or can we avoid even that?

I’m sure you’ve seen all the stories out there about near-death experiences. Many folks who return from those experiences report they’ve totally lost their fear of death.Read more

The Strangest Dream

posted in: Blog, channeling, life purpose | 30

A good dog never dies, he always stays; he walks beside you on crisp autumn days when frost is on the fields and winter’s drawing near, his head is within our hand in his old way. ~ Mary Carolyn Davies, American Poet

Last night I had the strangest dream.

I was walking down a deserted, dimly-lit street at dusk. In the fading twilight I spotted a scared, skinny little dog with a bloody gaping wound on the left side of his head.Read more

Can We Connect With Spirits of the Dead?

posted in: Blog, channeling, life and death | 4

The artist alone sees spirits. But after he has told of their appearing to him, everybody sees them. ~ Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

 

happy spirits

 

A while back, someone on Quora, a question-and-answer forum, asked if it was possible to connect with the spirits of dead people. Here’s the answer we gave, slightly edited:

You are already connected to the spirits of the “dead,” at least those who were close to you in life. And they want to communicate with you.Read more

The Power of the Present Moment

As we look deeply within, we understand our perfect balance. There is no fear of the cycle of birth, life and death. For when you stand in the present moment, you are timeless. ~ Rodney Yee, American yoga teacher

Do You Know Where You’ll Go When You Die?

posted in: Blog, channeling, spirituality | 10

You have traveled in dreams while safe at home with Me. ~ A Course in Miracles

angel in heaven

A few weeks ago someone asked me, “Do you know where you’ll go when you die?” My answer: “Yes.”

It was a quiet Sunday afternoon, and I was enjoying a few hours off from my work. The loud knock at my front door brought me abruptly out of a lazy, peaceful place.

There were two men at the door, and I knew instantly why they were there.Read more

Wayne Dyer 1940–2015: Followup by John Cali and Spirit

posted in: Blog, channeling, life and death | 20

Almost everything—all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure—these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important.
Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart. ~ Steve Jobs 1955–2011

To the well-organized mind, death is but the next great adventure. ~ J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and The Sorcerer’s Stone

sunriseSunrise

As I’m sure most of you know, Dr. Wayne Dyer made his transition Saturday, two days ago. I did not use the word “died,” because none of us ever die. We just change form.

I don’t have a hard time with people dying, even those close to me. And I have little or no fear of my own death. But, for some reason, the news of Wayne’s passing shook me.Read more

Spirit Is Speaking To You Right Now by John Cali

posted in: Blog, channeling, spirituality | 10

Image by Arpingstone

One of the most common questions folks ask my spirit guides and me is “How can I communicate with my dead loved ones?”

That’s a question most of us ask one time or another. I sure have!

As I see it, the problem is not that physical death cuts the lines of communication between our loved ones and us. Just the opposite, in fact. Our family in spirit are always right here with us now, in a much more powerful and intimate way than when they were in a physical body.Read more

Is Suicide Ever Justified? by John Cali

In our last blog post, Is The World Driving You Crazy?, we talked about a family murder-suicide. I know this is a tough subject for many folks.

Objections to suicide, including assisted suicide, range across the spectrum—religious, legal, spiritual, practical, and so on. It’s a contentious subject with widely varying and conflicting opinions.

Years ago, in a message I found very comforting, Spirit spoke of suicide. Read it here.

Going with the Flow of Life by John Cali

I was brought up in the Judeo-Christian tradition, as I know many of you were. We were taught the only road to success was hard work through pain and struggle. I bought into that perspective for much of my life. But no more.

Here’s Spirit.

Spirit

We talk with many humans struggling in so many aspects of their lives — work, relationships, health, even their spiritual paths. It does not have to be this way. As we’ve said many times, you certainly can grow through struggle and pain.… Read more
