WHEN WE FIND something that echoes our own behavior or thought processes, it confirms that we’re not alone; that there are others who think, act, or have a point of view like ours. It makes us feel validated and (sometimes) it makes us feel as if we’re actually part of a something bigger than ourselves.
I have to admit that when I read Mr. Rich Martini’s books—“It’s a Wonderful Afterlife” (both volumes), “Flipside,” “Hacking the Afterlife,” and “Backstage Pass to the Afterlife”—I felt as if I had finally found a kindred soul.
The Foreword to “It’s a Wonderful Afterlife – Vol. 2” especially gave me chills
“I no longer attend classes as I am very focused on helping others as they come in (or transition) to understand themselves and learn the opportunities they have available to them, and how to utilize the experiences we all bring with us.” – Galen Stoller, Foreword of “It’s a Wonderful Afterlife – Vol. 2.”
I’d never found anyone that would or could confirm or validate my work as a psychopomp:
“Death escorts are very real…how do I know? Because I am a psychopomp; I do escort the dead to the afterlife.” – TA Sullivan, “Escorting the Dead.”
Yet, here was someone who stated that he, too, worked with those transitioning (and I thought I had coined that word). It was beyond marvelous, it was mind-blowing. It’s especially buoying because this work done in a reality that many people don’t even believe in, let alone will acknowledge.
After all, death is something that most people dislike discussing, let alone admitting that an afterlife exists—at least, other than that imaginary, almost cartoonish, version of heaven, Nirvana, Elysium fields, the afterlife, or eternal rest. But physical death (or departure) is real, and it appears that I’m not the only one who works to help people figure that out.
The big difference is, I work from the physical side of things, while Galen works from Home (or the Astral side of things). But no matter what side he or I work on, we support those transitioning from Home to here, or here to Home. And Mr. Martini’s books, they support that what I’ve experienced (and am still experiencing) is real.
Grab one of our books and take a look at the flipside of life…I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised.
