Bill Guggenheim on Toward The Light 29 June!

Bill Guggenheim and his former wife, Judy Guggenheim, conducted seven years of research on After-Death Communication (ADC) for their best-selling book, Hello From Heaven! During this time they interviewed 2,000 people and collected more than 3,300 first-hand accounts of ADC experiences. Bill is on the Board of Advisors of the International Association for Near-Death Studies (IANDS) and is a member of the Association for Death Education and Counselling (ADEC).

He presents workshops at conferences for bereavement support groups, hospices, churches, colleges, spiritual centres, and many other types of institutions. His ADC research and book have been featured on television (including '20/20') and radio (including 'Coast To Coast AM'), and in numerous newspapers and magazines throughout the United States, Canada, and Great Britain.

Workshop Description for Hello From Heaven!

An After-Death Communication (ADC) is a spiritual experience that occurs when someone is contacted directly and spontaneously by a deceased family member or friend. These are direct contacts because no psychics, mediums, or devices are involved. They are spontaneous experiences because our deceased loved ones choose when, where, and how to contact us.

Bill will discuss the twelve major types of ADC experiences that people most frequently report. He will also describe six categories of ADCs that prove they are objective experiences, which provide convincing modern day evidence for life after death. Bill conservatively estimates that at least 60 million people in America have had one or more ADCs—not to mention those documented throughout the rest of the world! His presentations offer comfort, hope, and healing for everyone who has ever grieved the death of a loved one.

Hello from Heaven!Hello From Heaven! by Bill & Judy Guggenheim, is the first book ever written that documents this exciting new field of research. Published by Bantam Books, it contains 353 poignant and deeply comforting ADC accounts. The paperback edition is available at all major book stores in the United States and Canada. It is also available in the United Kingdom and throughout the Commonwealth, as well as in Dutch, German, Italian, and Japanese editions. Click image FMI.

This is a book that I've personally found so inspiring and it reveals just how easy and natural it is to have an ADC (after-death communication). Alas, it's something everyone can experience—something that is inspiring, heart-warming and rich with meaning. For a wonderful example of ADCs, please see the blog, ADCs ~ Friends at the Factory.

A Wonderful Double Line-Up!

It was such a joy to have two guests—both friends—on Toward The Light on 22 June. I've known Martha St. Claire for a few years and we've worked side-by-side in our endeavours to bring more awareness of the NDE into the mainstream and I see how it's definitely made in impact in recent years. The passion for the work is apparent when you hear Martha speak about her NDE and the special path and calling that has ensued as a result. The heart just bursts wide open and the love is undeniable. I never fail to be moved to tears when conversing with a fellow experiencer like Martha.

Working with Don Newsom every week for over two years has been such a joy and I'm so grateful for his very kind words of acknowledgements and love on the air. I refer to him as my favourite 'octopus' as he's always so busy tirelessly keeping the BBS Radio operation running smoothly and accommodating so many hosts and programmes simultaneously. He's honoured the call of spirit—veering away from a competitive capitalistic venture to pursue something far more meaningful and centred in the heart ... and BBS Radio is the result.

I am so pleased to be an active part of this wonderful media family and sharing the light across the world.

Thank you both so much! People loved what you had to share and were deeply moved...

Apologies to Listeners...

I was having such a lovely interview and dialogue with my special guest, Cindy Miller, on Sunday, 15 June, when suddenly the lines went dead. Blip!—and it was gone. I rang BBS Radio to find out what had happened and Don informed me that the power had just gone out, due to fires raging in their region in northern California, and just a couple of days prior to that, everyone at BBS Radio had to evacuate as the fires loomed closer and closer to their facility. What a week it has been for BBS Radio!

Alas, we did manage to get close to an hour’s worth of dialogue on the air with Cindy and it was such a delightful one indeed. In fact, after we were cut off, Cindy rang me on my mobile and we continued our wonderful dialogue for probably another hour!

We both acknowledged that this untimely event was meant to be—albeit, at a most awkward time—but we were able to share a lot between us and realise just how much we’ve got in common.

Being a radio show host has granted me the richest treasure of friends that one could ever imagine ... and I cannot tell you how deeply grateful I am for this, oh BIG time!

We’ll have to have Cindy back on the show, so we can complete our dialogue for our listeners to enjoy and find enrichment. Meanwhile, please keep everyone at BBS Radio in your prayers as they’re dealing with fires and power cuts in their region. As intuitives, Cindy an I both felt that Don, et al, at BBS should leave California—that this may be a warning that that is a vulnerable and dangerous area to be situated in ... but Don is not about to leave California—according to what he told me. He thinks it’s ‘safer than other areas’. I do respect his opinion—even if I do not share it myself.

Meanwhile, I am about to move house ... and we’ll see where the wind blows me...

Are You a 'Courageous Soul'?

It was such an honour having Robert Schwartz on Toward The Light on 8 June. He spoke about the changes in his own life that catapulted him into the research and writing of the book, Courageous Souls: Do We Plan Our Life Challenges Before Birth? And he provided some stunning examples of pre-birth plans of various subjects who were in sessions with different mediums—all delivering the same consistent messages to each subject.

In the book he's picked challenges that are widely experienced amongst the masses:
  1. physical illness
  2. parenting handicapped children
  3. deafness & blindness
  4. drug addiction & alcoholism
  5. death of a loved one
  6. accidents
He's now starting another book where he's going to add more challenges such as homelessness, immigration to a foreign country and more. He is looking for people to interview for his next book about why we plan before we're born to experience great challenges in our lives. Please contact him through the contact form on his web site,

Courageous Souls Indeed!

For months I've been anticipating having Robert Schwartz on Toward The Light (see blog below). He is the author of the splendid book, Courageous Souls: Do We Plan Our Life Challenges Before Birth?, which addresses the possibility of one's soul planning the challenges and suffering that one is faced with during one's incarnation on this plane. Here is an excerpt taken from the prologue:

On 25th February, 1969, Christina, a twenty-year-old administrative assistant in the department of political science at Pomona College in Claremont, California, went to the department's basement mailbox to pick up her employer's mail. As she touched a package in the mailbox a bomb detonated, hurling her across the room. Dust and soot filled the air; six-foot splinters of wood shot like arrows into the cement wall behind her. Flames from the explosion scorched Christina's face, leaving her temporarily blind. The blast severed two fingers from her right hand and ruptured both eardrums. Christina planned this experience before she was born. And she knows why.

As one who has dealt with great challenges and suffering throughout my entire sojourn on this plane, I can honestly see where all of it has been rich with meaning and purpose and, in fact, much of it has saved me from being caught up in the stranglehold of that which has enslaved humanity. It has enabled me to have deeper communion with Source and be more in touch with my soul ... and not so distracted by the 'stuff' of the world. It's gifted me with multiple NDEs that, for me, have provided proof that we do indeed survive physical death! And it has led me to the work that I'm doing now in service to others.

This programme is sure to be most moving and triumphant. Please join us!

Robert Schwartz on Toward The Light 8 June!

Robert SchwartzRobert Schwartz ~ In a personal session with a medium in 2003, author Robert Schwartz was astonished to speak with non-physical beings who knew everything about him — not just what he had done in life, but also what he had thought and felt. They told him that he had planned many of his most difficult experiences before he was born. Realising that a knowledge of pre-birth planning would bring great healing to people and allow them to understand the deeper purpose of their life challenges, he devoted the next three years to studying the pre-birth plans of dozens of individuals. The extraordinary insights that emerged speak to our heartfelt, universal yearning to know . . . why.

Courageous SoulsCourageous Souls ~ Would you like to understand the deeper meaning of your greatest challenges? So often, when something ‘bad’ happens, it may appear to be meaningless suffering. But what if your most difficult experiences are actually rich with hidden purpose—purpose that you yourself planned before you were born? Could it be that you chose your life's circumstances, relationships, and events? Courageous Souls tells the stories of ten individuals who—like you—planned before birth to experience great challenges. Working with four gifted mediums and channels, author Robert Schwartz discovers what they chose-and why. He presents actual pre-birth planning sessions in which souls discuss their hopes for their upcoming lifetimes. In so doing he opens a window to the other side where we, as eternal beings, design both our trials and our potential triumphs.

This book is available through Toward The Light.

This is be a profound and informative discussion—helping us to better understand the meaning behind apparent suffering on this plane and the gifts that come of it. This will also help us to understand that this is definitely not some sort of 'punishment' being inflicted on us, but, rather, the results of an agreement—a part of a 'sacred contract', as it were, that was made before we were born! Don't miss this one!
