Humankind will live together in love, peace, and joy when most of the seven billion people on earth grow to have deeply felt love and regard for all others. This profound change in humankind requires transformed lives, one individual at a time.

People change their views of themselves and others when they have near-death experiences, brushes with death, and afterlife communications. The experiences startle them into realizing the dreadful, self-absorbed materialist view of a cold, dead physical universe they grew up with is completely wrong. The experiences force them to realize we are eternal beings having a physical experience together. We are more than brothers and sisters on the earth plane–we are one spirit. Experiencers lose their fear of the transition called death, have more compassion for others, and feel their lives have meaning and purpose. They become transformed people.

As more individuals have these life-changing experiences, the changed people will transform their families, businesses, cities, nations, and eventually all of humankind.  All people will eventually live together in love, peace, and joy.

Afterlife Knowledge Transforms Lives

People live transformed lives when they know without doubt we are spiritual beings who should live together in love. That conviction will result from individuals’ having the transformative experience of communicating with loved ones living on the next plane of life. People will then realize we live on after so-called death. When people commonly communicate with loved ones who have transitioned off of the earth plane, establish new, fulfilling relationships with them, become convinced that life continues after death, and learn to trust the counsel given to people on earth from the other realms of life, they will grow to have the conviction that they are eternal beings; their nature will become other-centered and loving. Living in love, joy, and peace will be the natural course for their lives.

People will grow to live transformed lives when they have the transformative experience of communicating with loved ones living on the next plane of life. For these transformations to happen, people must have opportunities to have successful, fulfilling afterlife communications. Today, a variety of methods of having afterlife communications are available to anyone. Each individual must find the method that will be most successful for him or her. The methods have proven success rates–70% afterlife connections for one method, 86% for another, and 98% for one facilitated by state-licensed psychotherapists. Researchers in the field of afterlife communications are discovering new methods regularly, and educators are showing people how to use them.

The key to helping humankind transform to living in love, joy, and peace is having people experience afterlife communications so they view themselves and other people differently. The methods are available and people can learn to use them. We just have to let people know about them.

AREI Is Dedicated to Helping Humankind Change

AREI was created to support the dedicated researchers, developers, educators, and practitioners who are teaching people the realities of the afterlife, providing evidence that people live on after so-called death, discovering new methods people can use to have successful afterlife communication, refining existing methods, and teaching people how to use the methods.

Roberta Grimes, Esq., Craig Hogan, Ph.D., Susanne Wilson, M.A., Victor Zammit, Ph.D., and Wendy Zammit, M.A., incorporated the Afterlife Research and Education Institute, Inc., in 2016 to support the workers in the fields of afterlife communication, end-of-this-life activities, and the new spirituality.

Today, the organization has grown to over 700 members, most of whom are afterlife researchers, developers, educators, and practitioners. AREI supports a wide variety of organizations and individuals who are working tirelessly to help people have afterlife connections that change their lives.

Your Funding Will Support Afterlife Research, Development, and Education

Your funding is the key that will open the door to reveal the truth for humankind. The primary impediment to making advancements in afterlife education and communication that will change humankind is the lack of financial resources. Funding is virtually nonexistent for efforts to improve afterlife communication, teach people the proof that death is only a transition, and teach people about our true nature as spiritual beings having a physical experience. If we are to progress in the effort to change the hearts and minds of large numbers of people so the change is felt in humankind, we must provide financial support for the afterlife researchers, developers, educators, and practitioners.

The year 2018 is the breakthrough year. Our goal is to obtain the funding the pioneers in afterlife communication need to advance the methods so virtually anyone is able to communicate with loved ones on the next plane of life. We want afterlife communication to become commonplace. Today, the afterlife researchers, developers, educators, and practitioners are making remarkable advancements–they can do much more with financial support. These are examples of their work:

  • Recording voices of children in the afterlife speaking to their parents
  • Recording the voices of the consciousness of people unable to communicate verbally, such as Alzheimer’s and dementia patients
  • Using a method of psychotherapy that virtually eliminates grief from the loss of a loved one in one session through an afterlife communication
  • Training the public to have their own afterlife communication through a free online training program
  • Providing a vast library of information about the afterlife to inform people about what life is like there
  • Developing online groups and local groups where people can learn about the afterlife and afterlife communication
  • Making mediums available to more people by having online group reading
  • Proving to people we are all one and helping people learn how to live with that realization
  • Testing mediums to ensure people receive valid, uplifting readings
  • Providing training programs to enhance mental mediums’ abilities
  • Providing the environment to help discover physical mediums and nurture them
  • Training people to have uplifting, conscious deaths and how to share in the crossing

Afterlife Research, Development, and Education that Needs Your Support

Sonia Rinaldi, M.A.

Recorded Voices of People in the Afterlife Provides Convincing Evidence

Brazilian researcher, Sonia Rinaldi, M.S., is helping people connect with loved ones in the afterlife by recording their voices. Her discoveries are changing people’s lives. Sonia has been developing electronic means of recording voices of people living in other realms, such as the afterlife, and people on the earth plane unable to communicate because of limitations such as Alzheimer’s, dementia, ALS, and profound nonverbal autism. She has been able to video record the images of deceased people, pets, and entities living on other planes.

Sonia has been recording the voices since 2001, relieving people’s grief and showing them we are eternal beings having a physical experience. To date, she has

  • Provided grieving parents with hundreds of voices of children no longer on the earth plane
  • Recorded the voices of the personnel in the other realms who are making the communications possible
  • Recorded the voices of adults on the next plane of life
  • Recorded utterances from the minds of people unable to communicate because of
    • severe nonverbal autism
    • ALS
    • dementia
  • Recorded the spirit of an unborn child

Instrumental TransCommunication

Refining Methods of Recording Voices of People Living on the Next Plane of Life

AREI researchers are using Instrumental TransCommunication to record the messages from people living on the next plane of life. They are using the North American Station for transmission and recording the voices on a recorder or laptop. The voices are most often one to three words, with some very clear statements and some less clear because of limitations of the signal coming from the Station. This is a very early time in the development of our link to the North American Station on the other side. Anyone who listens to the voices must understand that many are difficult to hear and some can be heard only by a trained ear. We’re expecting the transmissions to be clearer as the Station matures.

The experimenter asks people on this side of life who want to connect with their loved ones in spirit to call. The experimenter puts the phone up to a recording microphone so the person can ask their loved one questions. The experimenter records the questions and the background noise. The person on this side of life and experimenter don’t hear the loved one in spirit respond at that time. When they play back the recording they have made, the loved one’s response may follow the recorded question.

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.

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.

R. Craig Hogan, Ph.D.

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.
