I have heard Ingrid in several interviews before and had the pleasure of having a conversation with her on behalf of Helping Parents Heal. But, I had not read her book “A Brightly Guided Life” until the day before this conversation. 
Ingrid has had two near-death/out of body experiences. Intuitive from a very young age, Ingrid has sense spirit and “light beings” around her all of her life. Her book reads like a novel as Ingrid has faced many challenges in her life. However, a key lesson that comes through loud and clear is that Ingrid’s life has been guided, even through events that no one would wish for themselves. Even during times when Ingrid told the Beings of Light she wanted to go on her own, they were there guiding her life.
As I was reading her book what I realized is that while Ingrid is unique in her experience with the Beings of Light, we all lead brightly guided lives, whether we are aware of it or not.
Ingrid is now an inspirational teacher, speaker, and author. I’m glad to have had the opportunity to have another conversation with her.

Wow. I am so excited about this episode. Natalie Sudman had an NDE in Iraq in 2007. She died when her vehicle was hit by a roadside bomb. Natalie immediately found herself in another “environment” as she describes it. In total, she experienced three distinct environments and each taught her valuable lessons about who we are and why we are here.  
Her book The Application of Impossible Things is one of hundreds of NDEs I have read and dozens of books about Near-Death Experiences. I have read it three or four times over the course of three years. Each time I get more depth from it.  
I’ve wanted to have a conversation with Natalie for a long time. It was as great as I thought it would be. Listen to the interview, then get the book!  

Michelle is the Shining Light Parent of Olivia, who made her transition to the spirit world in 2009. Michelle’s life of spiritually transformative experiences began with a White Light experience at the age of 12.

Michelle feels that over the nine years since Olivia passed she has had the purpose in life to serve others. Michelle has immersed herself into spiritual studies since becoming a certified hypnotherapist, shaman, and Reiki practitioner. Her husband Harvey and her son have also had experiences with Olivia. The whole Stein family knows Olivia is still with them.




I met Dana through Helping Parents Heal. Dana’s son Noah lived with a chronic illness from the time he was born until the time he passed away in September of 2017. In this episode, Dana and I talk about how the pieces of the puzzle that is her life have fallen into place over the years. She begins her story with a Near Death Experience at the age of 12 years old, an experience that would later come back as an adult in a Shared Death Experience that drew on the same imagery.


After the interview, Dana called me and gave me some more information about her Shared Death Experience. No matter how many times we have these experiences it seems we question our own sanity and experience when the world tells us what we have experienced is impossible.

When you listen, you’ll hear that Dana had a Shared Death Experience where she walked with a dying woman into her crossing. Dana saw imagery that was reminiscent of the experience she had as a 12-year-old. Yet, she wondered if this was real. In the Shared Death Experience, Dana saw the woman’s eventual home that she had constructed mentally, a small house along the beach. The woman was wearing a scarf in Dana’s experience. She appeared much younger than her sixty-plus years, closer to thirty. She, her Mom, Dad, and stepdaughter (who had passed) were sitting in a coach being carried by four angels, one on each corner. After the woman let go and passed, her brother, who was staying at a nearby hotel called to check on her status. He reported that he had fallen asleep and had the strangest dream. He saw his sister, on the beach, with a scarf around her neck. She was sitting in front of a small beach house and appeared to be around 30 years old- just as Dana had been shown in the Shared Death Experience.

When the woman’s daughter went to choose a casket, the catalog fell open to a page that was a casket with an angel on each corner. Amy, her daughter, chose this casket, not knowing of the vision Dana had where the four angels were carrying the coach.

Everyone tells you that you should meditate. But, you can’t stand sitting in silence with your legs crossed. You get bored. Your mind wanders. Are you doing it right?

In this fifteen-minute talk, I share my experience with meditation, how it’s helped me, and how I found a way to do it that works for me. If you say you can’t meditate, I say you just haven’t found the way that works for you, yet.

I met Daniel a couple of months before this interview. Daniel was doing volunteer work for an organization I’m associated with- Voice Of Our Angels. I moderated an event he did where he gave reading to parents whose children are in Spirit. I was impressed with Daniel’s mediumship abilities. But, I was more impressed by his giving spirit. Daniel is a father of three small children and holds down a full-time job. But, he is developing his mediumship and works as a medium in addition volunteering his time.

I wanted to have Daniel on to talk about mediumship and being a Christian. Daniel was raised Catholic and was “saved” as a teenager. Daniel is passionate about his relationship with God. So, when his gift was revealed, he studied and prayed about whether it was God’s will that he does this work. We had a fascinating conversation about how we read the Bible and what it says about “consorting with mediums”.

Daniel gives free readings on Monday evenings on his Facebook page (see link bel0w).

He travels all the time. Mark also does remote healing and teaching.

I’ve known Elizabeth for three years. I consider her to be a good friend. How we met is just one of dozens of synchronicities in my life and in hers. There is no way it was an accident.

When we say “Shining Light Parent”, we’re talking about Elizabeth who practically glows when you see her. She’s a bundle of energy and all of it is focused on making a difference in the world.

Elizabeth has two children who have crossed to the other side, Chelsea and Morgan. In this episode, Elizabeth tell us how both children have played a major role in the founding of Helping Parents Heal, an international organization with well over 10,000 members and growing. Helping Parents Heal provides resources and support for parents whose children are on the Other Side.

An hour isn’t enough time to do justice to Elizabeth’s story. But, we did the best we could in that time. I hope this episode lifts you up.

In today’s episode I spend just a few minutes talking about the roles of death and illness. But, this all came about as I thought about healing.

A few nights ago on Helping Parents Heal, we had an amazing healer speak to our group. This healer has had three near-death experiences and been miraculously healed herself. When you have a healer speaking to a group of people who have each had a child transition, you’ve got a built-in conflict because clearly our children were not “healed”. When a healer is telling you about what they have seen and done, you tend to ask why not my kid? Why did my kid die? Why wasn’t she healed of her illness? Was her guardian angel asleep?

These questions, posed by some of our parents, started the wheels in my head turning. As I thought about healing, my thoughts turned to the greatest Healer who ever lived. And, I thought about why there are death and illness at all.

Michelle Clare is a three-time Near Death Experiencer, a certified evidential medium, and an intuitive life coach. I met Michele as a test sitter for her mediumship certification.

In this episode, Michelle shares with us three very different Near Death Experiences. I believe that NDEs are tailored for the individual having them to provide them with the lessons they need and that they need to share with the rest of us. Michelle’s experiences support my hypothesis as each experience came at a time in her life, with a lesson that she needed.

Michelle, as an evidential medium, delivers messages, with evidence, that she is connecting with your loved ones in spirit. As an intuitive life coach, Michelle connects with your spirit guides, angels, loved ones in spirit, etc. to bring you guidance for your life. This was a fascinating conversation covering a wide range of topics.
