Is There an Afterlife?
I've been researching this for only a year and I'm already convinced that we carry on after physical death. I have to say that it has been quite a shock to switch from a confirmed atheist to a - what can I call myself now? I'm certainly not religious and I'm in no doubt so I'm not even a believer. I simply know, now, that my immortal consciousness is separate from the physical body and merely inhabits it for a (relatively) short time.
For those who are unconvinced, I can only suggest that you continue the research and read more.
It is advantageous to know and understand the concept because, once you leave your physical body, your consciousness creates its own reality. If you believe in hell (or nothing) then that's the environment which you will create for yourself.
Most of my research has been done via the Internet. I've included a list of books, below.
I have also watched many You-Tube videos about Near Death Experiences and the Afterlife.
One thing you must understand when looking for "proof". The "soul" or "spirit body" is just a bundle of energy as far as our physical world is concerned. As such, it's generally impossible (or only just possible) for it to have any influence on physical objects and communication is difficult. So you won't find any written evidence (at least not written by spirits themselves). Most communication is between spirits and suitably receptive human minds. This means that you always have the problem that those human minds might be hallucinating or simply making it up. Only specific facts will fulfil the need for evidence and they must be facts that could not have been obtained otherwise. Even then, some mediums have been accused of using telepathy, rather than communicating with spirits. Well, OK, even telepathy is paranormal so you can't ignore it. The best evidence I've seen is where the spirit directs us to a physical object that he/she hid or buried while still alive.
Anyway, here's my list of books. It's not exhaustive. I'm still buying books but there's a limit to how many I can read in a month!
