Talk: An En-lightning Experience” with Paul Aurand, MHt

Paul Aurand was struck by lightning in July of 1998. While struggling with the aftereffects, Paul was regressed back to his “en-lightning” NDE to re-experience the unconditional love and oneness that released his trauma and led to a deep personal transformation. This set him on a search to find a way to help others experience the same transformational qualities of an NDE without the trauma of dying or being killed.

Paul’s search led him to Life Between Lives (LBL) hypnotic regression which was developed by Dr Michael
Newton. Newton regressed over 7000 people to the afterlife and documented their cases in his books Journey of Souls and Destiny of Souls. Fascinated by the many parallels between NDE and LBL, Paul began to research the potential of hypnotic NDE regression. He joined forces with a cardiologist in Canada and a psychiatrist in Lisbon to conduct a pilot study with 20 sudden cardiac arrest patients who all had to be resuscitated. Each patient was regressed to recover the healing gifts and messages and release the trauma from their NDEs.

Boom! The Life and Times of a Suicide Near-Death Experiencer

At six months Chris was thrown into a dumpster by his biological mother. This became the root for suicidal thoughts throughout his life, eventually leading to a suicide attempt, when he experienced his NDE. During his NDE he met angels who have helped him in his love for working with kids. Join us January 8th at 6:00 pm PST (9 pm EST) to hear his amazing story!

Arizona IANDS presents…

Chris Batts is an author and motivational speaker who had a near-death experience after a suicide attempt. He was born in Southern California, where at 6 months old was thrown into a dumpster by his biological mother.  That, and never experiencing love as a child nor having any family who cared about him, became the root of suicidal thoughts throughout life,  eventually leading to his suicide attempt by throwing himself out of a speeding car at age 24.  After being removed from his mothers care by the courts, he grew up in many foster homes.

In his book “Boom- The Life and Times of a Suicide Near Death Experiencer”, Chris goes in detail about his life, what led up to his suicide attempt and how his life has changed since. He was  taken to the spiritual realm and experienced telepathic thoughts from God of Pure Love, but was overwhelmed because he didn’t believe in any of this. He met many Angels in this realm, including two whom seemed very familiar to him, and whom he is still in contact with to date. These two Angels continue working with him to help guide his understanding of how the Spiritual Realm works.

One of Chris’s strongest missions is to get the word out about suicide prevention, saying “many people who go through dark times and depression don’t realize how much they are loved,”

Chris loves music and sign language. He is currently attending college pursuing a Deaf Studies major, with the goal of becoming an interpreter.

Life Between Lives & Pre-Birth Memories

Christian Sundberg – NDEr / STEr – discusses Life Between Lives and Pre-Birth Memories plus the interaction alterations by the rising of the veil of forgetfulness. Friday, January 15, 4 pm PST (7 pm EST)

Durham IANDS w Susan Amsden, Facilitator
Friday, January 15, 7 pm Eastern (4 pm Pacific)

Christian Sundberg – NDEr / STEr
Life Between Lives and Pre-Birth Memories AND … “The Veil”

Christian has memories of being in a spiritual state prior to the decision to have a physical experience for the first time. He describes meeting a spiritual being that had grown from having many experiences of incarnation and the obvious enrichment of existence that those had produced for this other being.

Even further, Christian remembers the moment from being one with Source that was prior to creation of the physical universe.

Having then decided to pursue experiences confined in a physical lifeform, Christian describes the impact of “the veil” and having an almost overwhelming difficulty accepting the blocking out of awareness that had to be accepted as part of the process of incarnation.

Christian then pursued / participated in numerous incarnations to gain the varieties of “lessons” those variances in scenarios produce. Using alterations in life plans, physical characteristics, and raw circumstances, he understood agreeing to be presented those as challenges, obstacles, variations to grow in awareness from.

Christian goes on to describe this life as being a particularly difficult challenge agreed to as a compromise for not having pursued a previous life as planned for his benefit that he deviated from the agreed to preferred path. Yet, the understanding is available that there is no ultimately “wrong” choice, but instead the adaptations required may result in adjustments to future life path choices… so called Karma, but not as punishment, rather for resolution of lost opportunities.

Christian describes the “loss of awareness” he had from birth onward as being a natural process that occurred as he became more in-depth and embedded in the veil results in an adaptation to being here that can cause loss of the previous awareness of the connection to the non-corporeal existence that we come from.

This is definitely an advanced viewpoint of the how and why of incarnation and adaptation to the veil of forgetfulness. At one point Christian described having practice sessions of having an artificially induced veil as a test and preparation step for a particular incarnation he experienced.

Caregiver Sharing Group

A sharing group for individuals deeply committed for helping another in a situation facing a possible critical shutdown of vital functions. Join the pilot session for this group… Monday, December 21, 5 pm PST (8 pm EST).

Title: A sharing group for those caring for or knowing someone in the situation of being with an individual at or near the point of transition, the end of a life in a physical form – or – leaving and then returning for more until it becomes final, and caring for those that have had an STE or NDE. We are holding space for you to share your experience. This meeting is for talking about the challenges that are faced at the intersection of the NDE’r and the caregiver.

Purpose: To provide a safe environment for those in, or from, such a community to hear and share these extraordinary experiences.

Do you find an affinity with the phrase “left behind” or being somewhere between the known of “what was” and the new that is full of “letting go” with the adjustment that follows?

NoVA presents “How Dying Saved My Life”

Sometimes hearing the episode and aftereffects surrounding a person’s near-death experience, are the gripping part of the presentation … for David Bennett, putting his 2 NDEs in context with the rest of his life builds a narrative that stands out even beyond the exceptional nature of the NDEs. Dave’s life story is ineffable and unforgettable… see you there! Sunday, December 20, 11 am PST (2 pm EST)

Presented by:  Northern Virginia IANDS
Facilitator:      Angie Willson-Quayle, PhD
Date/Time:     Sunday, December 20 at 11 am PDT | 2 pm EDT 

Talk: How Dying Saved My Life” with David Bennett

David Bennett was once a brash young commercial diver and Chief Engineer of the Research Vessel Aloha. His harsh personal philosophy was “you cut your swath through life to survive.” But one night he was caught in a violent storm off the California coast where he drowned.

While technically “dead,” he met beings of light, relived his life, and peeked into his future, all resulting in a complete paradigm shift for him. Later in life, he discovered he had stage IV lung and bone cancer—so advanced that his spine collapsed. Miraculously, he survived once again. These brushes with death taught him even more about living, loving, and how to find purpose in his life.

David brings listeners right into the heart of the near-death experience NDE,) including his path changing life review, being surrounded by the love, the light, and meeting the Soul Family. Part lecture and part guide for achieving spiritual growth, this talk shows how to integrate the most traumatic of incidents into one’s spiritual path in order to live a more meaningful life.

Bio:

David Bennett enjoys the retired life of a public speaker, author, energetic healer, and transformational life coach. He has had many appearances on radio and television, including on The Story of God with Morgan Freeman, Doctor Oz, Angels, Among Us, NBC National News, and PBS.
