Near Death Experiences are a REAL phenomenon! In this episode, we discuss them, and my wife Jolene gives a full and detailed description of her own from when she was 4 years old. We also cover reincarnation and give some real-world examples of it.


The following are the show notes used to record this episode.  They are here for your reference and convenience.






 Russia is preparing the release of evidence of the involvement of the US government and intelligence services to the September 11 attacks. In the list of evidence includes satellite images

Ajit Pai, one of two Republican Commissioners on the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), inferred in a tweet that President Barack Obama’s secret, 332-page “Net Neutrality” document is a scheme for federal micro-managing of the Internet to extract billions in new taxes from consumers and again enforce progressives’ idea of honest, equitable, and balanced content fairness.

The Federal Communications Commission is misleading the public about its 332-page plan to regulate the Internet, a Republican member of the commission said Tuesday.

The net-neutrality plan could in fact open the door to new fees and taxes, as well as government control over the prices that Internet providers charge their customers, Commissioner Ajit Pai told reporters.

Protestors at the net neutrality announcement were tackled by security officers.  They were holding a sign that said “85% of Republicans support net neutrality”.
President Barack Obama will soon give Congress his proposal for a new authorization for the use of military force against Islamic State fighters, and it will place strict limits on the types of U.S. ground forces that can be deployed, according to congressional sources.

Almost six months after the president began using force against the Islamic State advance in Iraq and then in Syria, the White House is ready to ask Congress for formal permission to continue the effort. Until now, the administration has maintained it has enough authority to wage war through the 2001 AUMF on al-Qaeda, the 2002 AUMF regarding Iraq and Article II of the Constitution. But under pressure from Capitol Hill, the White House has now completed the text of a new authorization and could send it to lawmakers as early as Wednesday.

If enacted, the president’s AUMF could effectively constrain the next president from waging a ground war against the Islamic State group until at least 2018. Aides warned that the White House may tweak the final details before releasing the document publicly.

 Rep. Elijah Cummings (D–Md.) says, “so many people come to government knowing that they are not going to make the kind of money they would make in the private sector but they come to government to feed their souls.”

Cummings was speaking in Washington D.C. at the Legislative Conference of the National Treasury Employees Union on February 4th when he made the comments.

A young woman killed by police gunfire outside a fast food outlet in Sydney looked ‘possessed’, witnesses say.

Several triple-0 calls were made on Tuesday morning after the 22-year-old woman was spotted carrying a large knife and wandering around the Hungry Jack’s carpark at West Hoxton.

Witness Anabelle C’Eladoure said she called police after noticing the woman’s strange behaviour.

‘She was very out of it, she didn’t seem to know where she was.’

Show Notes:
There have been a lot of people that have had near death experiences.  My wife, in fact, is one of them.
I will play an interview that I did with her here in a  short time, and let you guys hear her side of things and what she experienced but there are some things I would like to touch on first..
Near death experiences, or NDEs, have been experienced by people throughout all of human history, as far as we know.
Many people experience different things in them, but the overriding theme of them seems to be a white light or tunnel of some kind, getting pulled through to it, and entering into a zone of complete peace and calmness, and, almost always, feeling a deep and unspeakable feeling of love.
There have been a ton of scientific studies on the phenomenon, but none have been conclusive.
Most scientists think that it is nothing more than the effect that the brain has when it is dying or lacking oxygen, etc, and that is that.
But that doesn’t explain how people that have gone through it see themselves….
doctors and events…
even things many miles distant…
Others say that they see Jesus or God or the angels, etc…
Some even claim to have visiited hell and go with that whole idea…
There are many books on the topic, though some are unreliable.
For example, the book “The Boy Who Went To Heaven”… He came out recently saying that he lied.
Unfortunately that does not do the topic any good, and I often wonder if some people out there do it as an agenda to muddy the issue.
Still, there IS enough evidence and “eyewitness testimonies” out there to establish that something is going on, and that it should be examined a lot more seriously.
I will have a website linked on my show notes for this episode.
This website hosts the accounts of many people who have reported thir NDEs.
These are first-hand accounts of people telling what happened to them upon their deaths.
It’s really fascinating, and you can definitely glean an overal pattern to things.

More than 15 common characteristics of an NDE have been reported by near-death experiencers.  An NDE may include only one or two of these elements, and, in a few cases, all of them. These include: a sense of being outside one’s physical body, sometimes perceiving it from an outside position; a sense of movement through darkness or a tunnel; intense emotions;  heightened perceptions; experiencing a great light or darkness; perceiving a spiritual realm, which may include vividly memorable landscapes; encounters with deceased loved ones, spiritual beings and/or religious figures; knowledge of the nature of the universe; a life review; a sense of oneness and interconnectedness; a border of no return; a sense of having knowledge of the future; messages regarding life’s purpose.3,4

  • No two experiences are identical and no single feature is found in every NDE.5
  • The most commonly reported type of NDE involves intense feelings of peace, joy and love, often an encounter with an unconditionally loving light.
  • Harrowing experiences are sometimes reported involving similar common elements but with opposite emotional states—extreme fear, isolation, non-being, confusion, occasional torment or guilt. Two substantial studies have reported the percentage of these NDEs as 17% and 18%,6,7 although smaller studies have found as many as 30%8;  two online NDE sites report incidences of 8.6% and 15%.9,10





In a great number of cases, the lasting effects of an NDE are that the people walk ahead in life with a renewed purpose and sense of peacefulness about death and no longer having any fear of it.




That’s the case with my wife, which you will hear in her interview with me.




Within a lot of the cases, as well, there’s been a prevailing sense that this is not the first life that you have, and won’t be the last.



This is the idea of reincarnation.





Reincarnation is the idea that this cycle of life is a repeating pattern.  That wel as eternal beings, live through life after life, continuing on in an endless journey through time.


Otehrs think of it as a matter of karma, where what you do in one life determines what the next one will be like.


Live like a slug? Come back a a slug, or something to that effect.



This idea has actually been one of the driving factors to the caste system that was set up in India.


What you are born into, status wise, reflects the things that you did in the previous life, and you are there as either a punishment meant to refine you as a soul, or as a gift, meant to reward you for the things that you did.






The prevalent buddhist belief, ont he other hand, is tied to the idea that a consciousness changes each time, and is therefore a “different person”, but it is the same “soul” overall.


The same energy or entity, that is just in place with a different consciousnesss.  A change of mind, so to speak.



That’s a simplified version of it, anyhow.  nutshelling it, so to speak.




There, frankly, HAS been a LOT of evidence to show the reality of reincarnation, in one form or another, occurring.






 In one case, a child in Turkey remembered the life of a man who was killed by a shotgun. Hospital records told of a man who had died after six days of injuries caused by a blast to the right side of his skull. The boy in question was born with unilateral microtia—a malformed ear—and hemifacial microsomia, which is the underdevelopment of the right side of his face.










Another story I ran across…




At age six, Taranjit Singh was living in Alluna Miana village in India. The boy had been claiming since the age of two that his real name was Satnam Singh and that he was born in Chakkchela village in Jalandhar, roughly 60 kilometers (40 mi) away.Taranjit allegedly recalled that he was a student of Class 9 (about 15 or 16 years old) and that his father’s name was Jeet Singh. A man on a scooter had collided with Satnam, who was on a bike, and killed him on September 10, 1992. Taranjit said that the books he was carrying the day of the accident were soaked in his blood, and he’d had 30 rupees in his wallet. The child was so insistent, and the story was so odd yet detailed, that his father, Ranjit, decided to investigate.A teacher in Jalandhar told Ranjit that a boy named Satnam Singh really had died in an accident, and this boy’s father was named Jeet Singh. Ranjit reached out to Satnam’s family, who confirmed the blood-soaked books and rupee details. When Taranjit and members of Satnam’s family met face to face, Taranjit was able to correctly identify Satnam in photos.

A forensic scientist, Vikram Raj Chauhan, read about Taranjit in the newspaper and investigated further. He took samples of Satnam’s handwriting from an old notebook and compared them to Taranjit’s. Even though the young boy “was not accustomed to writing,” the handwriting was a near-match. Dr. Chauhan shared his findings with colleagues, who also found the samples similar.










When John McConnell was fatally shot six times in 1992, he left behind a daughter named Doreen. Doreen gave birth to a son, William, in 1997. William was diagnosed with pulmonary valve atresia, a congenital condition in which a faulty valve directs blood from the heart to the lungs. The right ventricle of his heart was also deformed. William’s condition improved after numerous surgeries and treatment.When John was shot, one of the bullets entered his back, hitting his left lung and the main pulmonary artery in his heart. John’s injury and William’s condition affected the heart and lungs in a very similar way.One day, while trying to avoid discipline, William told Doreen, “When you were a little girl, and I was your daddy, you were bad a lot of times, and I never hit you!” Similar overly familiar statements followed. William asked Doreen about a cat she’d had as a little girl and mentioned that he called it “Boss.” Strikingly, only John had called the cat that—its given name was Boston. William was also able to differentiate between Boss and another family cat named Maniac.William was able to state the day he was born (a Tuesday) and the day John died (Thursday) before he even knew his days of the week without Doreen’s prompting. He said he’d been told on a Tuesday by “God” that he was ready to “come back.”

John had told his daughter that he would always take care of her. Whether he did in fact come back to care for her as William, the coincidences are an interesting link to her father.








Now of course, people will come along and debunk, poo poo and otherwise shillery at the idea of NDEs and reincarnation and will claim there is zero evidence for it.


Yet, there is also zero evidence against it.


They claim they understand what consciousness is and what it’s all about, yet they can’t even point to it and say, “there it is.”


They claim they understand it yet have zero clue how it forms, really, or what its’ place is in the brain.



And yet, poo poo.



a vast majority of them, in fact, will do it without ever taking a look at the evidence that is existent FOR the idea of both occurring.





Now, I WILL say that I do not agree with doing things like past life regressions.  I think that the errors that can accrue in that tyype of thing are really prevalent and dangerous.


Especially the ones who claim to do it for cash.  How many people out there say that they were once Cleopatra, King Edward, etc.



This kind of thing, again, muddies the waters






Here’s my personal take on things…



I do believe in the soul and I do believe that we are not here for the first time, and not here for the last, either.



Life is about experiencing lessons.




Everything that we do, go through…



It’s about growth of the soul…




We are all aspects of creation, of god, of whatever you ant to call it.  There’s no “religion” that has it right, there’s no spiritual traidtion that has it right, etc…  it’s all about going through everything that we go through in order to experience everything that itr is poissible to experience, because that is the ultimate goal of creation.


To experience.



And we can learn a lesson in EVERYTHING taht we do and go through.


All things are there to teach us, to give us the opportunity to move forward.





Everything is balanced out in the end.


Even negative things have pisitive outcomes, if you look hard enough and understand things from a top-down viewpoint.



Hitler, for instance, would be considered a large negative, but one positive thing that came out of his actions as the leader is the lesson that we can never allow someone like him to lead us again.


That’s a positive outcome from a negative situation.




Again, it’s about the top-down viewpoint of things, the long term view of things.



At the end of every one of my shows, I always say to “have fun”.  I do this for a reason…





  1. Stephanie Snow

    When do you stop reincarnating? When they asked you if you wanted to stay, did that mean stay in heaven for eternity or if you wanted to stop this life and begin your next one. How many times do you have to reincarnate? Is that your choice? If a person commits suicide, do they start a new life or do they go to hell? What you are describing resembles the Hindu way of thinking. I minored in religion in college.

  2. Hi – I really appreciate that you and especially Jolene shared experiences and thoughts about this topic.
    About the boy who supposedly recanted his NDE story – His last name was “Malarkey” . . and imo, his story was created by intelligence services that do not like this sort of information to be in the consciousness . . and so average people would hear something about a “recant” or “lie” about a boy going to heaven at about the time that the other boy’s story/book/movie came out, Colton Burpo, Heaven Is For Real . . now, i don’t know if his story is 100%, not saying that, but he has not recanted his story.
    Glad I found your show, at least this one 🙂 Blessings
