Keys to Having Self-Guided Afterlife Connections

In this presentation, Craig Hogan, president of AREI, describes the skills people can easily learn to have their own afterlife communications. He will take the participants through a brief experience to demonstrate the method. Craig has developed an online training program that enables anyone to connect with loved ones living on the next plane of life. It uses a form of self-relaxation to bring the experiencer into a state in which the connections may occur. It then teaches the experiencer how to allow free, open unfoldment so messages can come through from the loved one. The experiencers fill out journals after each stage that are submitted to AREI. Craig reads each journal and coaches experiencers to help them learn how to have an afterlife connection by allowing free unfoldment.

Approximately 86% of those who go through the stages in the training have afterlife connections. The method is named Self-Guided Afterlife Connections. It is available through any standard Web browser on the Internet and is free. The method has now been experienced by thousands of people. We continue to evaluate and refine it to help people learn how to make their own afterlife connections with loved ones.

Patricia McGivern will describe what we know to be true now about the life of miscarried and early-loss babies in the afterlife. Patricia has been a nationally certified hypnotist since 1998, specializing in past-life regression and helping parents connect with their early-loss babies.

Patricia’s first book, Angel Babies: Messages from Miscarried and Other Lost Babies, explores spirit communication with early-loss babies. In Angel Babies, Patricia discovers her deceased father is returning to her in her baby. She has established a new field of research into spirit communication with miscarried and other early-loss babies.
