Salt Lake City IANDS -Home and Back Again

In the summer of 2004, Imelda (Medy) Fowler died “several times” during emergency surgery. In her NDEs, she returned “home” to a celestial realm of astonishing beauty, met Jesus and deceased family members. During some visits, she had a life review, visited other other dimensions, briefly saw the “Plain of Hell”, and an escape from that awful place, plus more of “spiritual reality”… presented by Salt Lake City IANDS on Sep 25, 7 pm MDT (6 pm PDT, 9 pm EDT)

Imelda (Medy) Fowler – Home and Back Again: My Journey Through The Valley of The Shadow of DeathFriday, September 25, 6 pm PDT (9 pm EDT).

IANDS of Utah is pleased to announce our September 25th speaker will be Imelda Fowler. Imelda (Medy), originally from the Philippines, came to the US in 1980, where she married her husband, Tommy. They currently live in Hillsboro, Oregon. Medy, just 88 lbs. holds several world, national and state Power Lifting records in the 97 lbs. class.

In the summer of 2004, late one night, Imelda found herself in intense pain. She went to the hospital where a late-night intern misdiagnosed her burst appendix. It took 14 hours (the next morning) for an attending physician to make a proper diagnosis. In the meantime, Imelda had been in excruciating pain.  Once properly diagnosed, she was rushed into surgery, during which, and several times thereafter, she died and returned “home” to a celestial realm of astonishing gardens full of flowers with vibrant, vivid colors, some beyond any worldly colors.

While in this world of spirits, she met the Savior Jesus as well as many deceased family members. During one visit, Medy stood before the Grand Council of Heaven with Jesus by her side. She was able to see other realms or dimensions in the spirit world including a glimpse of Hell and those who go there. While she stood above the “Plain of Hell,” she learned there is escape from that most awful place. Medy even had a brief, frightening, one-on-one encounter with Satan.

The story of Medy’s NDE is told in Home and Back Again: My Journey Through The Valley Of The Shadow Of Death.

Being trained as an energy practitioner and clairvoyant from the age of 4 set the stage for one of the world’s foremost authorities on the science and verification of the effectiveness of energy practitioners for certification purposes. This woman’s life journey would fill an encyclopedia… it is a talk you won’t want to miss and do it live to have your questions answered. From auras to stem cells, Dr. Connor, has explored the depth and breadth of human existence…

Walking the Path of Energy Science and Mysticism
with Melinda H. Connor, D.D., Ph.D., AMP, FAM

Join Melinda as she shares an incredible life journey of scientific and academic accomplishments that are almost too extraordinary to be believable. That is not to say that the path was easy as it is also testimony to the spiritual components that reinforced her reality. The blending of science and ethereal practices led to development of theory, techniques to evaluate that theory and the rewards of a life devoted to building a greater understanding of how science and spirituality can contribute to enhancing the potential for having meaningful lives as humans.

Greater Reality Living Series

Greater Reality Living Series with Mark Pitstick, MA, DC

The Life Review Technique

This is the second of 10 independent interactive & presentation-oriented sessions…

SHORT DESCRIPTION

If you were to pass on today, what would your life review be like?  Would it be a work of art, or not so much?  Find out in this session so you can improve and make amends.  This technique can deepen your awareness about greater reality living.  You can share this technique, and a daily mini-version of it, with young people in your life and discuss afterwards.  Note: the webinar fee includes unlimited access to the video recording of this session (access to the video is available even if the live event is missed).

LONGER DESCRIPTION

This technique was originally developed by Ken Ring, PhD, early director of IANDS and professor emeritus at the University of Connecticut.  Author of Lessons from the Light and other books, he has worked with many people who had near-death experiences (NDE).  In his research, Dr. Ring found that the life-review was one of the most impactful aspects of NDEs.

Further, he found that you do not have to nearly die to benefit from a life-review.  Visualizing it during a deeply relaxed state can infer powerful positive changes.   Dr. Ring, now retired, gave me his permission to continue this aspect of his work.

The Life Review Technique is a life-transformative approach that uses deep relaxation and visual imagery to simulate dying and the subsequent life-review.  Processing that experience can produce very real changes that shape your life for the better now.  Using this technique can deepen your awareness of greater reality living and how you choose to live during your earthly visit.  You can share this technique, and a daily mini-version of it, with young people in your life and discuss afterwards.

A life-review can be a potent reminder about what is most important in life.  It can help you focus on your priorities and the purposes you had for choosing this earth-experience at this time.  The life review is not punitive; it is a great opportunity to learn valuable lessons that stay with you through eternity.  This feedback helps you do better the next time you are in a similar situation.

Using this technique can deepen your awareness about greater reality living and applying information from Greater Reality Living (co-authored by Mark and Gary E. Schwartz PhD).  You also can share this technique with young people in your life and discuss afterwards.

The Big Picture of Life – co-authored by Mark, Dr. Schwartz, and Katta Mapes MA, MEd – is a version of Greater Reality Living written for ages 10 -16 or so.  After this webinar, you will be better prepared to discuss this topic and this book with young people in your life.

If you are truly sorry for inappropriate actions in the past, those can be erased and reformatted in the way you could have acted (not should have, for there is no outside judgment here).  The life-review technique can help you more deeply realize your interconnectedness with all life and why the Golden Rule makes obvious sense.

You also can enjoy a “mini-LRT” each night when you go to bed.  Simply review your day with self-praise for your positive thoughts/words/deeds.  Then consider the ways that you could have done better and visualize yourself doing so the next time around.   Feel for ways that you can make amends or improve and resolve to do so.

Dr. Pitstick has used deep relaxation and visual imagery techniques with thousands of persons in private sessions and groups since earning his clinical psychology masters’ degree in 1980.  During the actual technique during this webinar, your audio and video will be blocked so you can relax in the privacy of your home during this group experience.

Recommendations Before the Session

  • Be rested since the induction techniques used are very conducive to sleep.
  • If possible, sit up instead of lying down during the session.
  • Eat a light, healthy meal beforehand so you aren’t hungry or have low blood sugar.
  • Avoid excess caffeine or sugar for 48 hours.
  • Avoid using alcohol or recreational drugs for at least three days beforehand.
  • Get as relaxed as possible before the experience.
  • Wear comfortable clothing that will not bind as you sit still for 45 minutes.
  • Bring lip salve to prevent dry lips during the open-mouth breathing.
  • Drink water and use the bathroom just before your session.
  • Turn off all phones, pagers, or other potentially interrupting devices

Recommendations After the Session

  • Enjoy some quiet time to internalize your lessons, insights, and inner peace.
  • Be careful and really focus if you drive soon afterwards.
  • Keep a journal to note any additional insights that arrive in dream or waking states.

Disclaimer: This session is not designed to replace medical or psychological care.  Your participation is voluntary; you should stop if you feel uncomfortable at any time.  If you have a history of significant mental illness, obtain permission from your doctor or therapist before using this technique.
