Teaching How to Record Afterlife Voices of Loved Ones

Researcher/Trainer Rev. Sheri Perl Migdol

AREI researchers are using digital recorders and laptops to record the messages from people living on the next plane of life. They are teaching people how they can record the voices of loved ones themselves.

Example: A child in spirit responds to the female researcher’s question.

Sonia: “Say something to me in English to let me know I should use this.”

Child in spirit: “I speak English.”

Recording Images of People Living in the Afterlife

Researchers are now recording the images of people living in the afterlife. Seeing the image of a loved one in the afterlife gives proof to people their loved ones are alive and well. The images also are convincing evidence of life after the transition from the earth plane.

Recording Images from the Afterlife on Video

Brazilian researcher, Sonia Rinaldi, M.S., who pioneered recording voices of people now in the afterlife, is recording video of the faces of people living in the afterlife. She gives the images to the families of the people in spirit.

Recording Images of Deceased People on Smoke

A PhD researcher with an extensive scientific background in mathematical quantum physics is able to shine specially designed light through the same smoke used on stage productions so faces of deceased people appear in the smoke. The goal of the researchers’ work is to give strong and rigorous evidence of a life after death in a scientific framework.

AREI’s Physical Mediumship Room

Using Physical Mediumship to Demonstrate Dramatically and Undeniably the Reality of the Afterlife

In physical mediumship, physical things happen in a room connected with the afterlife. The events are so remarkable that they prove to the experiencers that the afterlife is a reality and communication is possible. When many physical mediumship groups exist, people can attend the meetings and experience the phenomena that will demonstrate for them the reality of the afterlife and afterlife communication.

The physical mediumship occurs when a person with unique physical mediumship talents is present in a room with a group of people, called “sitters.” There may be more than one physical medium. The group meets regularly, usually once a week, for years, developing harmony among themselves and with a spirit team dedicated to working with them. After a period of time, that could be eight or ten years, physical phenomena begin to occur. The physical phenomena can be spirit lghts, raps, knock, touches of the sitters, odors, movement of objects, objectives dropping out of nowwhere into the room, full or partial materializations, voices that come out of a trumpet, the air, or a voice box created by the spirit team, table movement and levitation, and other such phenomena.

Physical Mediumship Research that Will Demonstrate to People the Reality of the Afterlife

Today, a variety of physical mediums and mediumship gatherings, called “circles,” are emerging and growing around the world. AREI has its own circle with a physical medium and three trance mediums.

Rochelle, Wright, M.A., LMHC

Training Psychotherapists to Help Clients Have Afterlife Communication with Loved Ones

Rochelle Wright, M.S., LMHC, CDP, NCC, EMDR Certified, is a Washington-state licensed psychotherapist who has used her professional, scientific training and credentials to connect people with the loved ones for whom they are grieving. They become transformed human beings, seeing themselves, others, and the transition called death differently.

Rochelle has developed a procedure named Repair & Reattachment Grief Therapy being used by state-licensed psychotherapists that reduces grief in a single session for 98% of clients by helping them have afterlife connections with the loved ones for whom they are grieving while in the psychotherapist’s office. Rochelle has trained over 100 psychotherapists to use the procedure. It is a remarkable breakthrough in the field of grief therapy that has a profound effect on clients. When it is more widely available, it will alleviate grief for many people and demonstrate for them that they and their loved ones live on after so-called death.


  • One study of the procedure shows that the procedure reduces grief from scores of 10 on the 1- to 10-point scale of distress the client is experiencing to scores of 0, 1, or 2
  • The procedure is now being used by over 100 psychotherapists with great success
  • New psychotherapists are being trained at the rate of 20 a year.

Helping Families Grow in Love and Wisdom by Sharing Loved Ones’ Passings

The group was full of supportive information that served as a comfort to me and created the container in which to process my grief. In a society that doesn’t address crossing over questions, one can be left feeling bewildered and alienated after loss of a loved one. The group explores, acknowledges, and supports all the unanswered questions. It opened the door to another dimension that I hope others will get to experience through this important work.
~ Jeannie R.

The Shared Crossing Project gives great comfort and confidence to people about to make the death transition, helps them by having family members share the experience, and draws families closer together in spiritual understanding and maturity through the shared crossing. The Shared Crossing Project was founded by William Peters, a marriage and family therapist at the Family Therapy Institute of Santa Barbara. William specializes in end-of-life activities and afterlife connections. The organization offers education and counseling for individuals and families interested in understanding death as a profound psycho-spiritual experience and preparing for a conscious, connected, and loving end-of-life experience.

Teaching People How to Have Their Own Afterlife Communication

Craig Hogan, president of AREI, 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.

Todd Moster

Showing Electronic Voice Contact Is Valid through a TV Docu-Series

Todd Moster is a writer, producer and director with a background as a prosecutor and law firm partner. Todd plans to produce a TV docu-series to help people realize we survive death with our personalities intact, and hard science can prove it. The TV docu-series will engage researchers in designing and testing equipment and procedures that result in successfully recording dialogues with people living in the afterlife. The recordings are called electronic voice phenomena (EVP) or instrumental transcommunication (ITC). The series is titled The Afterlife Files. 

The Afterlife Files TV docu-series of 12 half-our episodes will feature parapsychologists, afterlife researchers, mainstream scientists, sound engineers, and families mourning lost loved ones, who will be involved in the actual sessions of recording voices and images of people who have died. The researchers and scientists will validate the results and set up research designs to test them. The sound engineers will fine tune the equipment to get the best results. And the families of loved ones will have dialogues with them and verify that it is their loved ones that are communicating.

Leslie Flint
Direct-Voice Medium

Making the Insights from Leslie Flint’s Afterlife Recordings Available to Humankind

Leslie Flint, a direct-voice medium during the twentieth century, was involved in thousands of experiences in which people spoke to deceased loved ones and the deceased responded in normal conversations. Their voices did not come through the medium’s mouth or from anyone else present. The people whose loved ones came through all expressed with certainty that the voices were their loved ones’ and that they had had conversations with the real, living person, although they had been dead, at times for decades.

Today, there are thousands of recordings of people living in the afterlife speaking about conditions of life there, their personal experiences, the nature of reality, and truths about spirituality. The recordings are in various collections. AREI’s goal is to obtain all of the recordings to archive them, transcribe them to make the insights in them available to the public, and make the recordings available.

Small Groups are the Engines that Will Evolve a Changed Humankind

AREI knows that for humankind to learn to live together in love, peace, and joy, individuals must become more loving, tolerant, and compassionate. That requires interpersonal experiences as people learn about themselves and life. Small groups will provide the interpersonal experiences and learning.

AREI has a small-group initiative that is encouraging the development of small groups that meet in physical locations or meet online in Zoom groups. Some groups have special interests, such as grief support, instrumental transcommunication, physical mediumship, mental mediumship, book discussions, and other such interests. Other groups meet regularly for the camaraderie as they share and discuss random topics about this life and the life after this life.

Success of the Groups

To date, the groups are very successful. There are 10 Zoom groups with 150 participants.
