Prof Betty’s bio & my review

About the author
Stafford Betty got his Ph.D. in theology from Fordham University, where he specialized in Asian religious thought and Sanskrit. Today he is a professor of world religions at California State University, Bakersfield, and a researcher on death and what follows. In 2011 he published The Afterlife Unveiled, which maps out the afterlife as described by seven discarnates communicating through mediums. The Imprisoned Splendor, is a novel set in the world beyond. Heaven and Hell Unveiled: Updates from the World of Spirit is a non-fiction work which outlines a more fully fleshed out presentation of the afterlife.  His 2016 fictional work, The Severed Breast is published by White Crow Books. Betty’s latest non-fiction work, When did you ever become less by dying? Evidence for the Afterlife from Philosophy, Religion, and Psychical Research is published in summer 2016. Stafford writes a blog for The Huffington Post and White Crow in an attempt to reach non-specialists. Many of his articles are available at academia.edu.


My review as posted on Amazon UK & USA

Professor Betty’s  studied examination of the evidence of life after death through its many forms using as a guide a beacon of the physicalist, materialist, dualism and what can only rise above these restrictive philosophies to that of his theory of Qualified Monism. I propose this work will move forward and come to be a classic in the literature.  His evidential case for survival after death proven beyond doubt, something that had I not been brought up with the aforementioned societal guides I may have fared better.   I know that walk.  In late December 2012 as I cradled in my arms my dying 15-year-old daughter with utter devastation I had no idea of what was to be a monumental journey, to satisfy a grieving mother’s desperate need to know where her child was and more importantly was she safe.  My journey follows Professor Betty’s book so eerily that I have no doubt it came to me for a reason.  From hell to the whole, I too researched and researched almost chapter by chapter of this book for the evidence of continuity of survival after death and the type of survival I could expect she was now in, and I now communicate through EVP’s.  I wish no-one to have their paradigm shift the way I did but to gain the best benefit of life on earth that are as Professor says is what is so needed; the benefits outweigh our present reality neatly summed in the later pages with the keen eye of a man who can see a different paradigm.  This work is not above the average reading ability for the Professor has distilled science to a reachable state for us all. Other reviews detail precisely other angles of the book.  I understand completely Professor Betty’s final story of the woman whose child perished in the war because I am there now.

 

When did you become less by dying?

In  this book Professor Stafford Betty pulls together the best evidences for survival of death.  The very best, he maintains, come from psychical research. The near-death experience, deathbed visions, reincarnational memories of children, communication from the so-called dead through mediums, apparitions, poltergeists, spirits that reach out to us through electronic instruments, spirits that attach themselves to our bodies, and episodes of terminal lucidity in Alzheimer’s patients are all included.

But philosophy has a lot to say as well.  In simple terms Betty lays out the evidence against reductive materialism that claims all our experience is generated by the brain and that we perish at death.  Viewing the brain as an instrument put to good use by the immaterial self is much more consistent with the evidence.

Finally, he surveys the universal affirmation by the world’s religions that we survive death.

Betty brings together memorable examples and careful analysis of each type of evidence.  Each type is imposing enough by itself, but taken together they build a case for survival of death that is insurmountable.  He shows that life after death, as mysterious as it is, should no longer be regarded as a hypothesis, but, like dark matter, a fact.

 

EVP’s 24-07-2016

The recording that I have been working on most of today was made on the 24-07-2016.  It has not been the easiest of recordings to analyse.  Primarily the recording was of very few people and mostly female in conversations and some words were difficult to recognize.  As I have done in previous posts I have put the name first if there is a name.  The recordings are often better heard through headphones.

ask our angel can he pick one

bob says there’s a message in ekbar on Bob Taylor

Bobbies here now he’s behind you, Bobs (unintelligable) for it

EVP’s

 

To make the EVP’s a little easier to locate if there is a name I have put the name first, and the message later, so for instance one may “say x here” or it “may be here is x”.  This is, the only way I can present alphabetically.  In time I will take out the messages that do not have names with them and have them as a separate category.  For instance “I love you” is not attached to any name so would be a stand alone message.  As I am only in the early days of these, I may miss some material from the original, but the original can always be referred to at a later date as necessary.

These EVP’s are done through my computer.  The EVP’s are unenhanced.   There are some excellent books available on this phenomenon which I will post in due course.

The EVP’s here are just a small number that I have available at this time.  As I analyse the data, I will post, so best to keep an eye on the site.  If you notice any errors or think the EVP says something else, then please contact me.   You may find it much easier to hear by using headphones.  Enjoy.

Orbs

One of the first things that I was introduced to after Emma crossed over were orbs.  I had never heard of them nor had I been aware of them in photographs.  On looking back over photographs that were taken before her passing, there were orbs.  Since her passing orbs have fascinated me.   To my knowledge, we still do not have a definitive explanation for them.  The sceptics say it is dust, moisture and a host of other things through to those who claim they know exactly what they are.  I do not take either argument as a defining one.  What I do know is that there have been some excellent books written that have approached the subject in as scientific a manner as is possible at this time, and it is to them I would refer the reader.  From my personal experience, they are clearly intelligent, or intelligence is behind them.  Whether they are spirits or spirit messages is not in my mind a serious debate.  Why do I say they are intelligent?    It is because when one is photographing them when one “feels’ them as I do, then I may ask them to be in the photo or not as the case may be, and they oblige.  I am also aware of when they are around now and when they are not.  In times of doubt I will often go out and photograph the orbs, they are uplifting to me in such times.

The best books that I can recommend are “The Orb Project” Michael Ledwith & Klaus Heinemann, “Beyond Photography” Katie Hall & John Pickering, “Orbs and Beyond” also by Katie Hall and John Pickering, and “Orbs Their Mission and Messages of Hope“. Some other authors have written about orbs, but I consider these books to be classic and seriously authoritative.

Below are some of the orbs that I have photographed.  I do have a photo of an orb on my butt as I was bending over, now don’t tell me a certain teen didn’t have something to do with that one.  The golden orb is a frequent orb in my collection of thousands of photos of orbs.064
