Transition Helpers

Anubis : the Egytian God of the Afterlife, Gatekeeper, and Ruler of the Underworld

What is a Transition Helper?

A Transition Helper is not so much a Healer, but a caring and sensitive individual whose physical attendance with a 'dying' person provides a visible presence and voice and who serves as a divine conduit within this physical world for our journey back to Source

 They are special people who are able to affect positive change and focus in those they serve by assisting a person's transition from this physical form to a non-physical form with greater ease, peace of mind, dignity, respect, and even joy.

They could be considered the first or primary point of contact for the transitioning person within a divinely orchestrated hierarchy of Helpers and Assistants in the world to come.

I can fully recommend the book, "The Art of Death Midwifery" by Joellyn St.Pierre, D.DIV. as an excellent primer in this field.

One word that says it all ... SURVIVAL

I sent the sound file to Daniele Gullà in Italy and Alexander MacRae in Scotland.

Both have considerable background in EVP and sound analysis.

Daniele took a look and concluded that the sound track was reasonable for an EVP.

Alec made the following comment :

 "The sound is remarkably clean. Looking at it as a waveform with a vowel sound what you get are the glottal pulses at around 100 a second which "strike" the vocal cavities making them "ring" - but because one is dealing with a biological mechanism - the muscles and tissue of the body - random errors creep in causing the resonances to be a bit fuzzy and even the rate of the glottal pulses is slightly erratic.What you get is a spread of the frequency components resulting from this process. But with this sample - and with some I have which sound quite similar - the "ringing" is very pure, not fuzzy, and it is highly synchronized with the glottal pulses - it is not slopping around a bit as you would expect with a biological mechanism." 

Alec MacRae

In other words, "the sound track is cleaner than a normal voice if it has been formed out of the available sound, rather than via a biological system."

The Hound Of Heaven

A book of William Blake’s poetry that was one of Francis Thompson’s scanty possessions as he wandered the streets of London for several years in his late twenties, living as a vagrant. It was during this period of utter destitution that he was taken in by a missionary, during which time he summoned up his store of inspiration and wrote ‘The Hound Of Heaven’.

"I fled Him, down the nights and down the days; I fled Him, down the arches of the years; I fled Him, down the labyrinthine ways Of my own mind; and in the mist of tears I hid from Him, and under running laughter. Up vistaed hopes I sped; And shot, precipitated, Adown Titanic glooms of chasmèd fears, From those strong Feet that followed, followed after. But with unhurrying chase, And unperturbéd pace, Deliberate speed, majestic instancy, They beat—and a Voice beat More instant than the Feet— “All things betray thee, who betrayest Me.”

There is a simmering, illusive, yet lingering assurance deep within us that our life is predetermined and we have come from 'somewhere else'.

This is because fundamentally we are the essence of Source itself, currently incarnated in a particular form in a particular realm of existence'.

Many lose complete touch with their true essence as they traverse the course of their physical lives

Our egos can become quite fixated and rigid as they vainly try to ‘capture’ the illusive nature of our lives in some rationalistic mindset which causes us to further distance ourselves from that 'child-like state of innocence', which, I would argue, is one of the 'sanest' periods of our earthly lives!

As we physically age, the incessant deep-seated prodding of my divine Self tries to resurface amid the imposed ego constraints of our lives, and, more often than not, remains dominated by our intellectual quest for certainty.

As the human condition further impacts our lives, intellectual answers offer little solace and comfort.

This may just be the precursor that allows us to again discover the integrity of the spiritual life.

It is important that we come to understand that our greatest life insights occur when we realise that most of our formulated answers are the result of challenging existential moments that threaten our physical and emotional security.

All the while, salvation lies silently brooding beneath our ‘whirling existential angst’ waiting to drag us screaming to its tranquil ‘uncertain’ place, the very source of our questioning that lies mercifully beyond all rational superficiality and intellectual justification.

Till the next present moment.

The Goddess

The Goddess

A whimsical smile and a mischievous glance

Sweet toss of the hair, sparkling eyes that dance

This delicate being through evocative grace

Restores life from death through healing embrace

A mysterious presence, this angel of love

Goddess of compassion, come down from above

Caressing my wounds and instilling new bliss

My emptiness transformed by an intimate kiss

I give thanks to God for a life renewed

For love given freely and deep hope imbued

This Goddess of grace has given to me

New heart, new life, and the blessing of Thee

Birth of a New Day

Pale light flickers, orange flecks grey

Shadows intruded by glimmers of day

Dawn light streaming, crimson turns gold

A waking earth startled as its beauty unfolds.

Outback glistens, wetness finds heat

Earth gasps bravely, birth nearly complete

A new day heralded by the labor of night

Creation exhausted by a cry of delight!

A land now bathed in the glow of new life

Giving thanks and rejoicing beyond all strife

Limb like hills stretch upward saluting the sky

Dawning complete

God's presence is nigh.

Thomas Campbell - "Consciousness: The Endless Frontier" - The Monroe Institute Lecture

"Consciousness is a universal system of information that is aware, has memory, processes data, that can modify itself, has a purpose and is dynamically self changing. Consciousness is fundamental whereas physical reality is a virtual offshoot of consciousness." Tom Campbell

Handbook to the Afterlife

Carl Wickland, Charlotte Dresser, Franklin Loehr and others have written about the physically living being in the best situation to assist/rescue lost spirits who don’t know they have transitioned.

A spirit explained to Loehr that 

“the best way to reach most of these (spirits) – about the only way – it seems – is by a person still in the body. These lost ones don’t recognise the reality of their death, so they are closed to us. But they recognise the realness of persons still living in the human body. So these lost people can be reached by living people on earth. Psychic rescue work, it’s called.”

Mindsets and Transition

Current research indicates that, when our physical body no longer supports conscious awareness in this physical world, some aspects of our personality will continue in a different state of reality.

The term ‘survival of consciousness’ is more appropriate.

These aspects of personality that precondition our transition can be addressed by asking three questions:

1) What is dominant in our lives - our ego (simulated ) self or unquestioning Authentic Self ?

2) What is the defining belief structure that shapes our lives?

3) What emotional attachments do I have that I feel I cannot let go?

By honestly answering these questions, we can begin to discover that it is our thoughts and attachments that will shape our immediate transitional experience.

Transition is also euphemistically referred to as "dying and going to heaven," but words like ‘heaven’, etc. are laden with imagery and emotionally-charged, and also conjuring up images of an opposite ‘hell’ state.

We currently live in a physical condition where Authentic or Fundamental Self is challenged by creaturely human (ego) for supremacy and control.This living tension creates ongoing dialectical conflict between our fundamental (spiritual) and our adopted (physical) nature.

The new world that awaits us upon transition is conditioned by the ego/Self interaction and our personal dominating factors at the time of transition.

In other words, our pre-transitional mindsets are paramount in shaping our transitional process, affecting us for better or for worse, depending on the imagery (beliefs and emotions) that is foremost in our mind when we physically leave this earthly state.

One’s emotional and belief state prior to the moment of our transition will directly affect the integrity of that transitional moment.

What do we need to do?

Simply remain open-minded, non-judgmental , and fully accepting of a new conscious state where all is unconditional love, laden with positive experiences and cosmic celebration.


Assisting Earthly Friends and Loved Ones

You can directly assist earthbound souls to find release and renewal - below is one example among many invocations.

I request Angels and my Risen Helpers to now attend this gathering.

I welcome you

I request full protection for myself,  I request to be bathed fully in the white light of heavenly protection, and ask that that no attachments or overshadowing occurs at this gathering.

Please infuse and permeate my being with that pure white light of unconditional love.


I confirm that there are transitioning friends also present here who, by their own admission, seek to move beyond this earthly plane into the more vibrant heavenly realms of new beginnings


I welcome all my transitioning friends.

By attending this gathering, you confirm your willingness to move forward and to progress further with your lives, beyond the entrapments, bindings and limitations of your earthly life.

No-one will judge nor condemn you, regardless of what you may believe, and in spite of any wrong doings perpetrated against others in the past.

Your self judgement may be holding you back. 

You must accept yourself without any condemnation in order to free yourself from the binds of your physicality.

As you loosen and let go of the the strangle-hold of self concern, you experience a distancing freedom from the heaviness of the binding chains of your previous human condition that may have kept you grounded in this earthly sphere ”

Now become aware of other supportive and healing presences around you and allow these Angels and Helpers to apply balm to your earthly scars and wounds so that you may be healed.

 Allow them to support you as you become aware of the transformation of all negativities such as guilt, fear, blame, and self degradation

Openly share your pain, sorrows, hurts, misgivings, disappointments, emotional entrapments, and any unfinished business and physical limitations with the attending and supportive Angels and Helpers.

Their unconditional love will allow you to let go of all your preoccupation with the physical  senaste world that has created so much heaviness of heart and has stalled your progression.

You are now free to move into the glorious enveloping Loving Light of Ultimate Love, buoyant and unencumbered, in eager anticipation of the new life awaiting you.“

You are aware of the wonderful freeing and liberating power of this unconditional love and fully conscious that all restrictive physical and emotional roadblocks to your fuller risen life have now been removed, allowing you to move freely into your new risen state of being


I ask all gathered Angels, transitional helpers, and risen loved ones, to gently direct you into the awaiting arms of your new Risen life, that beautiful cleansing compassionate Light of new beginnings and renewed hope.

Confidently enter that wonderful bathing Light now, with all earthly bindings and ties released forever .....

Go into the Light surrounded and supported by the loving affirmation of all those Risen, who both send you , and receive you.


Angels and Helpers in attendance, before you take your leave from this place this night, please remove all negative residual energy left behind from this transitioning process"

Cleanse and permeate the fullness of my being with the white light of purity and the pure radiance of unconditional love.

Thank you for your assistance

Until we gather again

Discarnate liberation requires love and integrity

Never judge, nor discriminate - choose to assist all spirit people.

Declare vocally your intentions of assistance and personalise your response, using terms like 'someone here' or 'unseen persons gathered' etc.

Explain to these spirit people that although their physical body has died, they are fully alive and conscious in a new non-physical way. This is no dream or illusion.

Explain that for some reason, they have decided not to move on with their lives, having neglected to go into the light.

Assist these spirit people to become aware that by remaining behind in this temporal realm, that they are choosing to 'live in the past' within an outmoded physical mindset.

Make these spirit people aware that any fears they have are 'left-overs' from their previous human condition. In their new state of being there is nothing to fear, and that loving beings are waiting to embrace and support them.

Affirm their inner goodness and affirm their worthiness of a much better life than they are currently experiencing.

Explain to those gathered that there is no such thing as hell or eternal damnation - that was a false view concocted by their creaturely ego mind when it was influenced by certain beliefs.

Explain that no condemnation or punishment awaits them - only lasting unconditional love.

Assist the spirit person to resolve any unfinished business that may be the cause of them remaining in an earthbound condition.

Explain that entering the light is a wonderful freeing experience and that it will bring them personal peace, eternal joy, and loving acceptance. Their 'real' heaven experience awaits them.

Make these spirit people aware that their loved ones are now waiting in the light to meet and greet them.

Gently encourage the discarnate people to move forward with their lives when they feel ready.

Remind our spirit friends that they can return and visit loved ones on earth once they have fully risen.

Remind our spirit friends that there will always be special ties and bonds with loved ones awaiting them in the light. This is such a powerful enticer.

A wonderful confirmation of life's continuance following the physical transition of our Cairn Terrier, Emma.

When she turned 12 years old, she developed inoperable cancer, and we needed to release her energy self from the bindings of her physical suffering.

We brought her body home from the vet and buried her with tears and dignity in our backyard, and felt the pain of having lost a dear and loving companion .  

A few months later, I felt a strong inner prompting to take a photograph of a 'vacant' back garden path.

Seemed such a strange request.

There was nothing visible at the time with the naked eye.

When I saw the photo, to my utter amazement, there sitting obediently at the end of the path, was our Emma, looking healthy, radiant and restored to her puppy state.

Seems the loving obedience of our much cherished pets extends way beyond this physical expression of life!

"If you bury her in this spot, she will come to you when you call - come to you over the grim, dim frontiers of death and down the well remembered paths and to your side again.

And though you call a dozen living dogs to heel they shall not growl at her or resent her coming, for she belongs there.

People may scoff at you, who see no lightest blade of grass bent by her footfall, who hear no whimper; people who may never really have had a dog.

Smile at them, for you shall know something that is hidden from them and which is well worth knowing.

The one best place to bury a good dog is in the hearts of those who love her."

Adapted from “All Dogs Go To Heaven” by Ben Hur Lampman.



"Can I learn through joy rather than suffering?"

(The following is part of an on-going series of entries from the raw material that is being transmitted by the Risen Assembly, and discerned by August and Tim, and may be finding its way into their next book, Risen On Earth.)(© Tempestina Teapot Books 2011)

Suffering arises from the false sense of untrue duality, which yet remains ever a mystery to most of us embodied on this plane, and one few are able to solve. A most powerful question, it seems to me, is, "Can I learn through joy rather than suffering?" This also seems to compound the mystery, and to confound the thinking mind; perhaps this is necessary. The Risen do not think or use thoughts, which arise from an earthly, terrestrial ego-mind. What an incredible, awesome experience of interacting with, and observing others, without thought! And here appears a clue to the answer to the original question about suffering, which is that without thought, there is only joy. Joy is the sun which always shines. Thought blocks and distort the light of Truth, which is joy itself.

I, too, am becoming more and more convinced that these terms, "risen, rising" -- which appear to be rather new in referencing survival and the afterlife -- are finding increasing validation in many ways. I sometimes have worried that I was discerned those terms incorrectly, as the living information coming to me from Tim and others was vast, complex, deep, layered (infospheres). Only yesterday I was reading a rather hard book to find by the Christian New Thought mystic, Neville Goddard, called "Immortal Man." His language is often veiled in ways that are hard to understand - although I am fairly good with metaphysical language - and he says that he does not support reincarnation as the world teaches it...for scripture does not teach it. It does teach a second birth, which is resurrection. He elaborates that all people living on earth are "dreaming a dream" which for most, does not terminate when they die...they are instead restored to life in a world just like this terrestrial one (but is not actually it, but like it) - but eventually we will all "awaken as God", and this is what is meant by the son resurrecting. This all dovetails perfectly with what Tim brings forth in the chapter on reincarnation on our book. If we awaken - by correcting the imbalance brought about by a dominating ego-mind - we will continue on in this awakened state when the body dies - and this awakened transition is Rising.

Spirit Liberation and EVP/ITC

I was introduced to the world of spirit through the unplanned ‘mediumship’ of electronic recording devices in the year 2000.

Electronic Voice Phenomena ( known more broadly by the term of Interdimensional Trans Communication) provided my first interaction with ‘unseen realms of discarnate consciousness’ and was the introductory precursor to my earthbound ‘liberation’ work.

I spent the first few years trying to make logical sense of this strange phenomenon, but rationality failed, and I have come to accept that this is one of many ways that unseen conscious intelligences initiate 'interactive pathways into our physical dimension.

For me, EVP is a special gift to be used in service for the betterment of others, and I do not consider it some type of 'scientific phenomenon' that needs tangible scientific proof.

The fact that communication has been initiated by ‘unseen realms’, should be accepted as a ‘universal invitation’ to participate iwithn the interrealm work of ‘transitional assistance and support.

Because one’s 'creaturely ego' ongoingly tries to control, influence and thwart our pivotal connectedness with our Eternal Self, the ‘physical-ethereal’ transition process from this “sensate focused life” can be ‘hijacked’ by a physical organic brain and its desperate longings for immortality

.Guilt, fear, grief, physical dependencies, and various psychoses and neuroses, provide much unnecessary sensate and emotional baggage that often keeps people firmly entrenched and grounded in this physical realm of existence.

Through orchestrated ‘meditative enlightenment processes’ we do begin to understand that our ego is primarily our creaturely-based ‘organic processor’, whereas Authentic Self is our deepest and most fundamental Self which integrates and interprets our temporal experiences from an eternal perspective.

I do actively communicate with earthbound spirits, and with the assistance and support of a team of ‘Healing Risen Interventionists’, fulfil an important role in bringing much needed ‘individual awareness’ and ‘peace of mind’ to ‘trapped’ and ‘disoriented’ physically transitioned people.

I serve as a human-based ‘facilitator’ within a greater vibrationary team of helpers that assists with an individual’s transition into the higher and finer vibrationary realms of life.

My role is important in bringing hope and reassurance to physically transitioned discarnate beings about the certainty of life continuance and also to assist an individual toward a place of deeper trust and eventual acceptance in life’s continuance beyond this physical realm.

I use EVP as a two-way communicative medium to initially discern the presence of discarnate beings, and I then attempt to communicate with them in a dignified, sensitive and compassionate way, by personally mirroring or reflecting their current status and situation.

The rest of my interventionist role involves using various psychotherapeutic tools and methodologies to assist in bringing a personal 'metanoia' or ‘new awareness’ to the transitioned person.

I welcome comments from similar others who are currently ‘dabbling’ in this new area of ‘psycho-ethereal’ release work and I am more than happy to offer various resources that I have found to be ‘dynamically’ useful in this essential work.

Yours in Service

My Mother manifesting within an Orb

There are many viewpoints concerning the status of ORBs, but one point that many agree upon is that they seem to be a spherical concentrated energy form. 

If this be the case, possible "inter dimensional remodeling" by 'deceased' loved ones may be possible allowing our loved ones to visually communicate with those in the physical realm. This image of my Mother, as she looked around 30 years of age , materialized in an orb captured on a Canon Powershot G9 camera at my daughters place some years ago.
