I just got around to watching the video. I've actually seen this one previously a couple of years ago. Thanks for sharing it though WW. It was definitely worth the watch again. I like Buhlman's views largely especially his acknowledgement that our beliefs are what we create. He's incredibly emphatic on self empowerment and I love that. It IS all about beliefs ultimately.
Yet, I will say that I don't agree with him on everything. I read his book too "Adventures in the Afterlife".
I have gotten an enormous amount of insight from researching NDE's and OBE's. However, what I have also come to see recently is that it needs to be understood (and this is why I don't agree with a lot of what Robert Monroe came to understand) all of these experiences, while incredibly valuable are still colored of course to some extent by the experiencers own belief systems. Yet, there are many other NDE's which I resonate with far far more so because of how they make me feel in my body.
Buhlman supports this idea of spiritual evolution which is all about spiritual progress. While I believe that Earth itself is evolving, no doubt. And we clearly as Consciousness are infinitely expanding, there is a vast difference in "Expansion" (which is infinite because imagination is infinite) and "Spiritual progress/evolution". This same idea is touted in many other spiritual teachings. It's as if "If you don't get there, you will be left behind". Or "Everyone learns at their own pace". But, this presupposes that we are learning ANYTHING here or progressing anywhere. It is something that I subscribed to as recently as a couple of years ago I would say. But, I no longer do. It's hard for me to explain my own intuitive insight on this. But, I really had to look within myself to FEEL what answers really resonated and what didn't anymore. And it took a lot of honesty with myself. Not to mention, if you look at the NDE's of:
1) Rich Kelley (who I have spoken to multiple times on the phone)
2) Nanci Danison (who I have spoken to through email)
3) Kelly Sammy (who I have spoken to through face book)
4) Raymond Killman (who I have spoken to also through face book and am face book friends with)
plus the works of Conversations with God in the first book and many others including Julia Assante, Abraham, etc, these people/entities will tell you flat out. We are here to learn NOTHING and to progress to NOTHING. I don't believe in any kind of reincarnation cycle either.
In other words, when I listen to Buhlman talk, about beliefs creating, it resonates deeply to the core of myself. This man GETS it. However, in my estimation, I think he has overlaid some of his own beliefs on top of the simplicity of why we are REALLY here (which in my mind has nothing to do with spiritual evolution/progress).
I'm going to post a link from Julia Assante where she discusses about her interview with Buhlman and where she also disagrees with him. Her views here are directly in line with my own.
I'm actually editing this comment to add this point here and deleting some other stuff as my post was getting initially extremely long. I think the reason that Buhlman gets very animated over the idea of "preparing for the death experience", is because, yes, he has absolutely experienced the astral realms and experienced how our beliefs (which correlate vibrationally with our experience here in the physical AND in the non physical without question) create our direct experience. However, Buhlman (like so many other NDE's which don't GO far enough) has only gotten to a certain point in understanding because they have not gone nearly as far as others have in the transition experience. He never died. OBE's is NOT death. True death I think, is something so far different than we can possibly comprehend and we will ALL eventually come to see that none of it, including the 'lower realms' is ultimately real once we start transitioning back to the higher frequencies. There is nothing we need to worry about, or prepare for in order for us to get back 'home'. Every NDE'r gets there for the most part. Kelly Sammy was a suicide NDE who had the most horrific self loathing thoughts about herself on death. What happened in her transition process?

The day I committed suicide, I overdosed on very heavy sedatives. And LOTS of them. I was in my SUV vehicle laying in the back. I felt my body slow down, my breathing become very shallow and my organs stop working. That is the only way I can describe it. I was literally 'aware' of my death. My first realization that I was "DEAD" was that I was ABOVE my vehicle looking in at my body convulsing and fluids leaving my body. I witnessed the entire thing. I didn't feel scared. No pain. No fear at all. Just a pure peace with it all. And then I was in BLISS. I was not separate from anything-I was EVERYTHING. I became it ALL. This is the oneness I now understand fully. That feeling is just one of EUPHORIA. And I never wanted to LEAVE that place. The feelings that permeated my entire BEING (even though I was not separate or a being--a really difficult thing to explain..)permeated with LOVE. And as I experienced this, I was also a witness to my entire LIFE.
I was able to view and communicate (without ever having to use words) with everyone in my life in a single brief BLIP. I was able to thank, apologize, forgive, accept, and just come to a complete AHA with all that had transpired. This was not something that felt 'necessary' or like a requirement. It was nothing like what I have heard of people having a 'life review'. There was NO judgement. No one to tell me I did this wrong, or this right. All simply WAS and all simply WAS LOVE. And even though I was able to communicate and have those moments of acceptance, apology, forgiveness, etc...that was simply because my human self wanted to close those loops. Almost like a finality if you will. And EVERY SINGLE experience was a celebration. Even those we would label 'bad' or 'wrong' were celebrated purely as an EXPERIENCE.
I feel like this co-experience of ONENESS lasted a lifetime and a second at the same time. Simply because there was NO TIME. My next experience led me to what I refer to as the Akashic Hall of Records and a huge stone table where I was greeted by many Souls, of all 'type'. Some human, others not. Here, I was shown how we as souls chart and draft our life plans. I was able to understand mine further and realize that even this experience of suicide and death was charted. I am giving you minute details simply because of time and space lol but I could talk days about each of these areas of experience during my 18 minutes of apparent 'death'.
I was shown that I would return to the physical vessel that I left and that I would still be the characteristics of Kelly, yet with a knowing that I am MORE than Kelly pre NDE. I had an amazing experience with Arch Angel Gabrielle who led me to a garden with the most magnificent colors and smells. NOTHING I can compare it to here...although I try. Gardenias and the palest of pinks...but again those don't even TOUCH what I experienced. I met my son as an adult. He told me he needed me to return. My Guide Bernadette who I also met, told me I had bigger work to do in helping others be reminded to remember WHO they are. That we are all EVERY THING and NO-THING at the same time. And we are each PERFECT in this illusion of separation. That this experience is truly just that -- and a blip on the radar of who we really are. To be JOYOUS, to be LOVE. To know the contrasts or only so we can know MORE of this JOY and LOVE.
Whenever I write or share about my experience I get a sensation of LOVE I cannot describe. It is euphoric. When I returned to my vessel/physical body...I wanted to skip through the halls of the hospital and tell everyone and YET....I had just killed myself and taken very strong medications to do so. My Guide Bernadette and several Angels were there with me and that made me question if I was truly INSANE from what I had possibly done to my brain. They just kept telling me to "keep quiet...for now". So when the doctor came in and asked if "you see anything or hear anything that others do not" -- that was my first lesson to say "no, doctor, I am just fine."
The weeks after this experience, I could literally walk through walls as the molecules were still moving so rapidly around me. If I had a thought about a place SWOOSH, I astral traveled there. I did not sleep for almost 10 days because I was terrified this would GO away. I was talking with my deceased loved ones as if they were sitting with me at that table. Yet of course no one else could see them. I realized (finally) that I could go to sleep and my senses would never close up. My gifts to see/hear/feel those hear and gone were to remain.
Kelly had probably some of the worst possible beliefs about herself at her transition experience, but was her experience anything other than beautiful? So, what is Buhlman think he is preparing for at death is what I ask? All is well in the words of Abraham.
Let me put it this way, in Nanci Danison's new book "Answers from the Afterlife", she has a whole section on the death experience and why certain NDE'rs come back with some experiences of the after life, while others have OTHER experiences. She has said that we can create experiences early on in the transition experience and it will seem incredibly REAL, but it is only temporary. Everyone eventually merges with Source. It is completely up to us. So, I say, why not instead, live your life from whatever INSPIRES you rather than trying to prepare for a death experience? Not everyone WILL wake up to their beliefs. And there is only something wrong with that if you believe there is actually.....SOMETHING TO LOSE. If you believe that there is anything to lose in this life (by worrying about the death experience), well......
With that said.....I will say that Buhlman is incredibly passionate and I love that about him. I read his news letter regularly and his views on OBE's are the BEST by far. And he's motivated me to want to explore going out of body more.
