Dr. Raymond Moody and Paul Perry Discuss Near Death And Shared Death Experiences

"Raymond A. Moody, Jr. (born June 30, 1944) is a philosopher, psychologist, physician, and author, most widely known for his books about life after death and near-death experiences (NDE), a term that he coined in 1975 in his best-selling book Life After Life ...

Moody earned a BA (1966), M.A. (1967) and a Ph.D. (1969) in philosophy from the University of Virginia. He also obtained a Ph.D. in psychology from the University of West Georgia, then known as West Georgia College, where he later became a professor in the topic.[4] In 1976, he was awarded an M.D. from the Medical College of Georgia.

After obtaining his M.D., Moody worked as a forensic psychiatrist in a maximum-security Georgia state hospital. In 1998, Moody was appointed Chair in Consciousness Studies at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas." [Wikipedia]

Dr. Moody's research and books were an inspiration to me during my work as a trance medium from 1980 to 1995. Thank you, Dr. Moody! Here are two video interviews with the good doctor. The first video is about 11 minutes in length. It is particularly informal and off the cuff. Very nice. The second video is 31 minutes and similarly relaxed. I hope you enjoy.

Fantastic Video - Will Lift Your Heart and Soul

Pump up the sound! This is a classic for the ages.

The lyrics, the pulsating music, the incredible video outtakes cut right to the chase. The finished video somehow captures the essence of what Spirit spoke of through me all those years. Pretend you can actually see the soul of each person at that moment of their life. Feel the heroic determination within their soul ... the same gallantry laying deep within us all. 

I've watched this video probably twenty times and it never fails to bring a grin to my face and a tear to an eye.

Your gonna love it. Promise. This is very special.

The symphony within is the music of our soul, the heartbeat of our spirit.

Inspired by the workings of our spiritual parts, it is an ever-evolving composition reaffirming optimism and promise. It is, too, the oft-muffled sounds of our innate desire to touch and to be touched. The symphony within is a soaring hymn seeking permission to engage, then fortitude to re-engage. Born of the Divine seed within, it is our valorous concert to the living of life, the magnificent sounds of our purpose and promise.

Performed on instruments of care, courage, engagement, and understanding, the melodies are majestic, noble, and finely tuned. At times, however, it is but a cacophony of fragmented sounds--would-be notes seemingly in competition, haphazard and sometimes strident. Unwittingly, we become less responsive, absent initiative, and internally isolated. Regardless of station, spiritual beliefs or professional success life can be tough.

 ... our valorous concert to the living of life ....

... our valorous concert to the living of life ....

Those on the other side, the afterlife, understand the pains and predicaments of our incarnation to this "... beautiful but difficult school called Earth." Whether family, friend or an angelic teacher at a given moment they guide us. Their counsel and encouragement have less to do with our physical survival than our ongoing journey to the heart as a soul. Through dreams of day and night, they nudge us back on the path while reminding us that we are indeed loved.

Spirit inspires us to be gentle on ourselves, then others. They guide us to listen to The Symphony Within.

In our soul's finest hours ...
The Symphony Within is soaring violins and muscular violas lifting
soul's longing dreams to our waking mind while
ever-brave trumpets raise us from recline.

It is noble French horns throwing golden tones far afield,
heralding renewed occasion to stride into day and deed.

The Symphony Within is lyrical oboes beckoning that we might re-engage while
sensual cellos charm our dusty desires. And we shimmer again.

It is a crescendo of buoyant clarinets, fearless flutes, and piping piccolos
affirming our right and soulful need to a celebration of life itself.
