Near-Death Is Not Real Death

“The time has come,” the Walrus said, “To talk of many things: Of shoes — and ships — and sealing-wax — Of cabbages — and kings — And why the sea is boiling hot — And whether pigs have wings.”        – Lewis Carroll (1832-1898) from Through the Looking-Glass (1871) The death process is amazingly...

Evidential Mediumship

Posted by Roberta Grimes • December 14, 2019 • 67 Comments

One question that is often asked is whether there are any good mental mediums. People ask the question in various ways, inquiring about honesty or native talent, but what they really want to know is whether we know of a medium who can clearly demonstrate to them that a loved one has survived. Having had... Read More

Ah, but a man’s reach should exceed his grasp, Or what’s a heaven for? (from the poem “Andrea del Sarto” in Men and Women by Robert Browning, 1855) We have so much good evidence of what happens at and after death that it’s tragic that so few people are at all familiar with it. We... Read More

What Can Go Wrong?

Posted by Roberta Grimes • September 21, 2019 • 55 Comments

It has been almost half a century since I first began to read old communications received through physical mediums from people we used to think were dead. Soon after I began reading what was a rich trove of detailed accounts that have by now been almost forgotten, I was noticing an account or two, just... Read More

The Happy Process of Natural Death

Posted by Roberta Grimes • September 14, 2019 • 109 Comments

Death is a universal part of life, so the level of misinformation and fear that still surrounds it in the twenty-first century is horrifying! So much of what we are told by those we venerate as authorities is scary, silly, and entirely wrong. The scientific community still insists that the death of our bodies will... Read More

Explaining Death to a Child

Posted by Roberta Grimes • September 07, 2019 • 32 Comments

When I first understood that death is a minor transition in someone’s eternal life, I stopped thinking much about the prevailing view of death as something negative. My foremost failing has become the fact that my first thought now on hearing about a death is actually happiness for the decedent. What else can you expect... Read More

You Shall Know the Truth

The first time I reached my mother through a medium she said, “You were right about everything!” That was good to hear, but it made me groan because this woman had resisted all my efforts to convince her she would survive her death. I had read to her from The Fun of Dying. I had... Read More

Brain-Hacks

Posted by Roberta Grimes • December 08, 2018 • 9 Comments

One astonishing byproduct of the bogus scientific theory of materialism and its correlate certainty that consciousness has to be generated by the brain is the fact that so many scientists have become obsessed with developing brain-hacks. They are certain that your brain creates “you,” even though they have no idea how that happens; so now... Read More

Stumbling Toward a Theory of Everything

Posted by Roberta Grimes • March 15, 2018 • 20 Comments

Stephen Hawking’s death yesterday felt especially sad to me. We saw him as trapped in a crippled body, but how much more tragic was the fact that such a great mind was for his entire life forlornly trapped in a crippled science! The simple explanation of his “theory of everything” is a tautology – gravity... Read More

Dealing with Grief

Posted by Roberta Grimes • August 12, 2017 • 34 Comments

I hear from grieving people almost daily now. Their pain is often so raw that it is nearly unbearable to read their messages, and I realize that since I cannot feel grief myself I am handicapped in my attempts to help them. But I try! Grief is a process. It is composed of a number... Read More
