Self-Guided Afterlife Connections





Self-guiding Your Afterlife Connection
while Listening to Meditation Music

At this stage, you will interact with your loved one on the next plane of life on your own by listening to meditation music and bringing yourself into a state of relaxation without the narrator's voice. You will then make your connection.

Some people find they prefer to have the narration to take them into the relaxed state. If you would prefer the narration, click on the link below. It will take you to the recording that leads you into the relaxed state, then plays 30 minutes of relaxation music so you can stay as long as you want.

Go to the narrated version


If you're ready to try taking yourself into the relaxed state without the narration, below is the procedure you will follow. Read it before closing your eyes to begin.

Take Yourself into the State of Consciousness
Where Connections Occur

You go through many states of consciousness during your day. Most of the time, you are alert to the physical realm around you. That is one state. When you're thinking through a problem, that is a second state. It is a different state of mind. When you're daydreaming about what will happen this coming weekend, the daydream is a third state of consciousness. Your mind is actually different during each state. When you're dreaming at night, you're in a fourth state. You go through many different states of consciousness every day.

The state you were in when you had a connection in one of the previous stages was another state of consciousness. You can go back into that state by recalling it, just as you recall a memory. To do so, bring to mind the feelings you had in a specific connection. Recall the images, feelings, words, and overall sensations. In the process of recalling, you're taking your mind back into that state. Recalling actually reforms your mind. You leave your alert, waking state and enter the connection state.

After you go into your relaxed state, bring to mind the connection you had in a previous stage. Recall the images, feelings, words, emotions, and everything else associated with that experience. That will recall the state of mind, and in recalling it, you will enter it. Then allow whatever unfolds from that to come. You might also ask a question about what happened or a message you had during the previous stage that you didn't fully understand. If nothing seems to be happening at some point, recall the memory of the connection in another previous stage. Begin the dialogue again. Let whatever unfolds come naturally.

You can also enter the state of mind you were in when you had a dream of your loved one. Do the same thing. Recall the dream, the images, the feelings, and everything else associated with the dream. After you've entered that state, begin a dialogue. Ask questions. Then allow whatever unfolds to come naturally. You might ask your loved one, "What did this dream (or symbol) mean?"


This is the procedure you follow to go into the state of relaxation:

  1. Feel yourself breathing for a few minutes.
  2. Relax the muscles from your head to your feet.
  3. Count down from 20 to 1, becoming more relaxed with each count.
  4. Feel the white light of protection flowing over you.
  5. Go deeply into the part of your subconscious where love is by counting from 5 to 1, feeling love for your family, humankind, and your loved ones who have passed.
  6. Go to the place of great beauty. Recall what it feels like to be there and you will be there.
  7. Begin to connect with your loved one.

This is the procedure.

Sit comfortably with your legs and arms not crossed. Then close your eyes. Become aware of your breathing. Breathe for a couple of minutes before starting the relaxation script that follows. Don't worry about memorizing it. Just focus on relaxing. Say something like these statements, slowly:

As I breathe out, I breathe out tension. I am slowly going into a state of deep relaxation. I am going deeper and deeper and deeper, into a state of deep relaxation. Each and every muscle of my body is now loose and restful. Everything is so peaceful and quiet.

My jaw and face muscles are relaxing, relaxing, relaxing.

My shoulder muscles are relaxing, relaxing, relaxing.

My arm muscles are relaxing, relaxing, relaxing.

My wrist and hand muscles are relaxing, relaxing, relaxing.

My chest muscles are relaxing, relaxing, relaxing.

My stomach muscles are relaxing, relaxing, relaxing.

My back muscles are relaxing, relaxing, relaxing.

My thighs muscles are relaxing, relaxing, relaxing.

My calves and feet muscles are relaxing, relaxing, relaxing.

Ten, my whole body is relaxed.

I am now in a state of deep relaxation, going still deeper and deeper and deeper. My whole body, from the top of the head to the toes of my legs, is totally relaxed. Deeper and deeper, feeling better and better, quieter and quieter.

Now I will count from 20 to one, and with each count, I will go deeper into a relaxed state.

20, 19, deeper, 18, 17, deeper, 16, 15 deeper, . . .

I can feel the white light that is the love of the Higher Power flowing over me, from my head to my feet, protecting me from all negative influences and negative energies. [Envision that.] Only the highest spiritual energies can come to me.

Now I'm in the place of great beauty where love is. [Envision it.] I know _______ is here with me. [Begin your dialogue now.]

After you're relaxed by going through this procedure, you don't have to think words to yourself. Go to that beautiful place where love is. Let it unfold. Just intend to be there. Go through the door to the afterlife. Ask your loved one to come to you. Ask questions. Accept anything that unfolds. You may have a sense of their presence or a feeling of love. You may have a dialogue. Accept whatever comes. Let it unfold.

When you're ready to come out of the experience, just say this to yourself. Don't worry about the wording. Just remember to count to five, feeling yourself become more awake with each count.

I will now come out of this relaxed state on the count of five, feeling refreshed and relaxed.

One, I am ready to come out of the state.

Two, I am becoming aware of the chair.

Three, I am noticing sounds and the room.

Four, I am awake ready to open my eyes.

Five, I am now opening my eyes, fully energized.

You should have set aside 15 to 30 minutes of time when you are in a quiet area without interruptions. Bring no cell phones to the area. Tell your family or others living with you that you are not to be disturbed. You should be wearing comfor clothing, preferably without belts or other restrictions. A jogging suit is ideal. You should be sitting in a comfor chair or recliner, not laying down.

IMPORTANT: You're participating in the Center for Spiritual Understanding's research to help humankind make connections with people on the next planes of life. When you started, you agreed that to have access to the recordings, you would fill out a journal describing what happened to you in this experience. After you've gone through these recordings, please follow through with your agreement by writing in the journal as explained at the end of this page.


The Recordings

The sound bars below will play the recordings in Windows Media, Real Player, or Quicktime, depending on which media player you have installed. You may play either the 30 minute recording or 60 minute recording. You could also set your Windows Media Player or Real Player to loop, so that the meditation music plays over and over until you stop it. To do so, follow these instructions:

In the Windows Media Player, open the Windows Media Player and click on “Play” on the toolbar across the top. You will see the option “Repeat.” Make sure it has a check mark beside it. If it does not, click on "Repeat" to turn that option on. The check mark should appear.

In RealPlayer, open the RealPlayer program. Click on the “RealPlayer” name in italics in the upper left corner, and click on “Play.” In the list of options, you will see "Continuous Play." Make sure that it has a check mark beside it. If it does not, click on "Continuous Play" and the check mark will appear.
