DES. With a background in marine electronics, and then counselling along with trance psychotherapy and neurotherapy, I have developed the habit of being analytical and even skeptical. I respect hard evidence. Wishful thinking has no place in my life. BEYOND reflects this need to deal with provable facts.
The 60,000 words in the book were given to me by my wife Val after she died, and also by other people in her environment. This was made possible because I entered a neurological trance for an hour at a time every few days for eight or nine months, and talked to her. As well I encountered our daughter who died before birth, and a veiled and mysterious group who provided an infrastructure of details I had never heard of before. Their information comprises a strange and chilling agenda which I call BEYOND.
But how does all this come together with my insistence on nothing but “proven facts”?
The neurological trance, which I have used in one form or another for many years with my clients and students, comprises a marriage between two techniques: Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) on the one hand, and Induced After Death Communication (IADC) on the other. EMDR was developed by Francine Shapiro, Ph.D, at the time a senior research Fellow at the Mental Health Institute in Palo Alto, California. It was proclaimed by a large number of the world’s foremost psychological authorities as “a stunning breakthrough” in the field of mental health in most countries of the world. Many books and scientific papers have been published on the subject since the late 1990s.
During research programs on EMDR, it was discovered that a certain percentage of subjects (many of them psychologists) in a neurological trance were able to discern or communicate with deceased individuals. A string of similar projects followed with different personnel. Same results. It was then that a young research scientist, Allan L. Botkin, Psy.D, became involved. He refined the EMDR protocols which greatly increased the percentage of researchers who were able to contact deceased individuals, and called his technique IADC. Nowadays Dr. Botkin conducts workshops on IADC around the world. He also wrote the Foreword to my book.
I further modified IADC so it can be used by a person on him or herself. This enabled me to “follow” Val after she died, and then access the group who appeared to be waiting for the opportunity to broadcast their message. Please make of it what you will.
