In this book 12 deceased human beings describe their initial experiences and encounters in the beyond. These personal accounts, transmitted through the Swiss deep trance medium Beatrice Brunner, are impressive testimonies of the continuation of life after death and provide revealing insights into the world that awaits us. Each of these accounts gives us information which goes far beyond what has been ascertained by classical thanatology.
“My name is Mathys … When I arrived here in the beyond, I was astonished at the reception I was given. My parents, who had returned to the spirit world a long time before, came to greet me and were overjoyed to see me. ‘Now you need never worry again about your daily bread!’ they told me.”
“My name is Peter. I died when I was seventeen. During my short life on earth I never gave any particular thought to the world beyond. When I entered this world where everything was quite new to me, I was met by my grandmother, clearly overjoyed that I had come home.”
“My name is Theresia. … During my life on earth I, too, made many, many mistakes. I was told this immediately I arrived here in the spiritual world. But I was also told the following: ‘Theresia, you have earned yourself considerable merit on account of your many children.’”
“My name is Jakob. … During my life on earth I could not believe in God – I could not find him. I had little sense of responsibility and could see no purpose in life. My lack of belief led me to make many mistakes in my life.”
“My name is Maximilian. … I did not suffer much before my death, and when I opened my eyes in the next world I was astonished to discover that death was not the end of everything.”
“My name is Amalia. … I was ill for a while and I had to be nursed. … When I opened my eyes I found myself in a very different setting: everything was bright, and there was light all around me.”
