"History shows that every intelligent man who has gone into this investigation, if he gave it adequate examination at all, has come out believing in spirits; this circumstance places the burden of proof on the shoulders of the skeptic."

Visions experienced by folks who are on their deathbed are often thought to be mere dreams or hallucinations, But some very convincing arguments have been made that others are reactions to the actual presence of spirit forms. ♦ For other articles and excerpts on topics related to Survival and psychic matters, see aisle E7 in the Evidence room of the Garland Memorial Library.

New to Spiritual Experiences?
One reason, among many, that prompts people to visit this website is that they are seeking explanations or reassurance concerning a puzzling occurrence in their life. I have put together a list of some of the most common — a lot more common than you might think — events that can trigger a shift in the way that one’s consciousness relates to one’s spiritual essence. You may view this list here, and are welcome to contact me if you desire elaboration or wish to discuss your own experience. In the meantime, I’d like to say that I and all the other volunteers who make up the Academy are glad you stopped by and hope you find this site informative and our work gratifying.
