Friday’s 20/20 Show on ABC was an excellent look at the after life and the paranormal. The stories: Mediums, namely the Long Island medium; Theresa Caputo; a look at premonitions; the near death experience of neurosurgeon, Dr. Eben Alexander, who has just published Proof of Heaven: A Neurosurgeon's Journey into the Afterlife, the story about his incredible experience while in a coma after contracting a very rare bacterial meningitis, and not expected to survive. He spoke of butterflies and a beautiful young woman with blue eyes and filled with love, who guided him. He drew a picture of her. Later he was to discover a photograph of a biological sister he did not know, who had died as a young woman. When he received her photograph from a biological family member, it was the woman who had been with him on the other side. Seeing her photograph brought me tears.
Part of the show was devoted to the psychic ability of animals. I’ve written about that and you can find my article at Self Healing Expressions. I also wrote about one of the animals mentioned, Oscar the Cat. You can find that article here.
Butterflies....symbols of angels and spirit guides...Some time ago I wrote not only an ebook about that, A Loving Presence: Signs and Symbols from Your Angels and Spirit Guides, but also I have an article, and at my article others are posting their experiences with “visits” of deceased loved ones, who appear or send butterflies or birds. You may enjoy reading the many experiences shared by others, and feel free to share your own experiences.
I’m pleased to see that ABC didn’t fill half the program with skeptics and debunkers, like what used to always seem to happen. If you missed the program, I believe you can find it on the ABC TV website.
