world. But there's nothing stopping us. We are pure
consciousness, which means that we can create any
form to express ourselves. We can create anything
It’s liberating to be free from biological constraints.
To be truly prepared for our afterlife journey, we must
not students, but active explorers. Only direct
experience sustains a lasting shift in consciousness.
There is no single, best way to explore. I am well
aware that even though having an out-of-body
experience is a profound method for spiritual
understanding, this is not the path for everyone. So in
my new book, Higher Self Now! I encourage personal
meditation practices and provide many techniques
to help the reader open a door to self-discovery.
In this book, I've concentrated on preparation
for death and developing awareness about our
voyage beyond death because this is the key.
We're immortal, creative, multi-dimensional
beings. Everyone is looking at death as the end,
when it is really just part of our soul’s continuing
journey. Human life is like a flash. When you're in
the afterlife, this life seems like the blink of an eye.
Our thoughts create our environment and selfidentity. We do it every day in the physical by
choosing our home, our partners and our hobbies.
So why would we stop creating just because
we no longer have a physical body? This is
especially true at death where we will enter an

incredibly subtle, thought-responsive dimension
of existence, and this is where our ability to
manifest our creations expands exponentially.
We are not matter-based. We are pure consciousness
using a multitude of various energy bodies to
experience and explore an infinite and beautiful
reality. Each of us is a microcosm of an eternal
universe. This is critical knowledge to support
an enlightened transition to the non-physical.
I’ve aligned my work with The Monroe
Institute in Faber, Virginia where experience is
emphasized over theory. I teach people there
how to empower themselves to be explorers of
consciousness; to follow their own process; their
own intuition—to become knowers instead of
believers. That is what self-empowerment is all
about. The more you know before your transition,
the more emboldened you will be after death.
Based on my observations during out-of -body
experiences, the average person after death
moves only a fraction into the infinite universe.
Instead of fully experiencing the wonders of
worlds beyond the physical, the average person
will find themselves in a consensus reality created
by the collective thought of individuals who still
believe they are biological beings. In other words,
they've gone from a dense physical environment
to a dense non-physical environment. They have
not accelerated their growth because they still
identify with the limits of their biological body.
