For Beyond 50's "Spirituality" talks, listen to an interview with Dr. Annie Kagan. She'll share the extraordinary, true story of her after death communications (ADC) with her brother William Cohen, a.k.a. Billy Fingers, who began speaking to her just weeks after his unexpected death. Her account of his on-going journey through the mysteries of death is filled with transcendent wisdom and hope. You'll learn the difference between Shared Death Experiences and After Death Communications, plus Dr. Raymond Moody's explanation of "Walkers Between Worlds." Moody is the world renowned research expert since the 1960s on the Near Death Experience.
Billy Fingers passed away at the age of 62, having spent his lifetime in jails, an addict, a former drug dealer and homeless in Miami Dade, Florida. He felt that is was important (in his afterlife communications to Annie) for all to know that now matter how we lived, we are loved.
Dr. Kagan granted Beyond 50 Radio permission to share quotes from Billy about what life is like for him on "the other side.
"When we're alive, there's something inside us, a sort of cosmic computer chip, that records everything we go through. Right now, I'm watching my whole life from my birth to my death. What's really great is that this hologram has a very special feature. You know how you sometimes think to yourself, "What if?" For example, when I was alive I often wondered, "What if I had married my first love?" or "What if I had done well in school?"
Well, guess what? My hologram is expandable. I can live out the life those "what ifs" would have brought me to. What's surprising, though, is that it doesn't seem like one way is more valuable than any other. I don't have a preference. It's all fascinating, and I have no regrets."
"And here's another secret for you, my sister. There is not right way for things to turn out. Some endings are happier, some not so happy, but it's not just the happiness percentage that matters. It's the music of it. Most people's lives don't have enough music. I was lucky; my life was a rock opera."
"After you die, you spend a lot of time, solo time, exploring yourself as a Universe. Do you believe that? You are the Universe. But society teaches you different. Society teaches limitation. Believe me, Annie, everything you ever need is already inside you.
And who you really are is far beyond your comprehension. that's why living squeezed into the human experience can be painful at time. It was for me."
"Earth is just a stopover. A kind of game. Make it a star game. If I could give you a gift, it would be to teach you how to stay free inside that game, to find the glory inside yourself, beyond the roles and the drama, so you can dance the dance of the game of life with a little more rhythm, a little more abandon, a little more shaking-those-hips."
Annie asked, How do I make my life a star game?"
"How can I say that you are the Universe? Because I have become as small as the smallest quantum particle, and as big as the multitude of galaxies that exist in space. I was always like that, really. I just didn't know it. And so is everyone else.
Look at pictures of the Universe. Then close your eyes and image those stars, clouds, comets, and galaxies inside and all around you.
When you turn your attention to the limitless, the irritation seems small compared to the sun and moon and stars. When you are imaging the infinite, you're touched by your infinite self."
