AREI Presents ~ Mediums Rare

The L.A. Medium ~ The Psychic Lawyer ~ The Carefree Medium ~ The Reporter for the Otherside
Don’t miss this session, included with your Friday night banquet ticket. Highly acclaimed mediums Mark Anthony, Tina Powers , and Mark Nelson join host, Susanne Wilson, for an evening you’ll never forget.

Expect the unexpected. There may be laughter or tears, but one thing is certain: you will feel the presence of spirit when these extraordinary souls share the stage.

You will hear their personal stories and see them in action as they give messages from the spirit world to audience members at random. No one is guaranteed a message, but if you pay close attention, you may well find a gem that touches your heart.

We will throw it open and see if we can do any double- or triple- or even quadruple-link messages. Fun!

George Noory Asks Our Experts Questions from the Audience

George Noory will lead one of the very popular panels he is known for. He will choose six of the presenters to be on a panel. Audience members will write questions, and Tom Danheiser, George’s affable organizer, will collect them to give to George.  George will ask the experts the questions, while Tom asks some questions himself as he’s in the audience hearing from audience members. The panels are always enlightening and entertaining. There is no predicting the questions, and answers, or George’s and Tom’s reactions.

Everyone will then have an opportunity to meet George.

Susanne Wilson Will Perform a Session of Platform Readings

Susanne Wilson is well known for her platform readings, with highly evidential messages coming for audience members. Susanne’s performance and accuracy have been researched and documented by world renowned afterlife researchers including Dr. Gary Schwartz, Dr. Victor Zammit, Dr. Craig Hogan, and Attorney Roberta Grimes. She has 70+ verified legitimate testimonials published by Bob Olson on his highly respected Best Psychic Directory.

Not everyone is guaranteed of a reading, but listening to the readings everyone receives is enlightening, heartwarming, and entertaining.

How to Record Afterlife Voices

Free Workshop

Reverend Dr. Sheri Perl is an Afterlife Research and Education Institute ITC facilitator. Sheri is using Instrumental TransCommunication to record the messages from spirit to their loved ones here on earth. Although her focus centers around connecting-up children who have passed with their parents, Sheri will do readings for anyone in need. The title of her book “Lost and Found, “ indicates her firm belief that what you have lost in the flesh you CAN find in the spirit.

According to Sheri, who has been recording for a little over a year, the messages are becoming longer and clearer. In her readings, the parent or bereaved loved-one is brought into the reading via cell phone and they are able to ask questions. The answers from spirit are recorded and through a careful auditing process, Sheri is able to hear and isolate the answers. According to Sheri, these readings provide “A joyous exchange of love.”

Sheri will hold a two-part workshop which will meet in the mornings on September 15th and 16th. This workshop will literally walk you through the steps necessary to set up your computer to record EVPs. If recording EVPs is something you want to do, then bring your laptop with you to the workshop. Sheri believes that it is possible for anyone who is coming from a place of sincerity to record voices using the same method she is using, which is based on Sonia Rinaldi’s work.

“I cannot guarantee that you will connect-up, or that the voices you record will be the voices you want, but I do believe that our loved ones-in-spirit want this connection too, and that if you persevere, you will succeed.”

Suzanne Giesemann Will Channel Higher-Level Beings

In this demonstration, renowned evidential medium Suzanne Giesemann will go into trance and channel messages from the higher realms. There is no agenda and no way of predicting or controlling what will come through.

In a special presentation about channeling and how to channel, Suzanne will discuss her connection with a collective group of higher level beings called Sanaya. She will help you understand evidential mediumship and channeling, and how you can know about your own abilities and abilities of people you know.

Hay House author Suzanne Giesemann is a retired U.S. Navy Commander with a master’s degree in Public Administration who served as a Commanding Officer and as aide-de-camp to the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff on 9/11. The author of 10 books, today former-commander Giesemann is an evidential medium and spiritual teacher.

Sonia Rinaldi Plays Recordings from the Afterlife, Nonspeaking People, and the Unborn

Sonia Rinaldi is recording clear voices of people in the afterlife, people on the earth plane who are unable to speak because of nonverbal autism, Lou Gherig’s Disease, dementia, and other such maladies, and unborn children. She is flying in from Brazil to explain how she does her work and to bring examples of these voices from her groundbreaking work.

Sonia communicates with a team of researchers, engineers, and scientists in another realm at what they call the BrazilianStation, using a clearly defined procedure. The recordings are crystal clear. She will play some of them during a special session at the symposium.
