Episode 99 Cancer survivor John Weiss shares Afterlife experiences on We Don’t Die Radio Show

Sandra: Welcome to another episode of We Don’t
Die, where my goal is to give you evidence that although our bodies will disappear, we
survive physical death. I’m your host, Sandra Champlain, author of
the international, best-selling book called, “We Don’t Die: A Skeptic’s Discovery of Life
After Death”. Today on our show, I’m pleased to introduce
you to John Weiss. John is a native of New York City who studied
journalism at the University of Arizona. Upon his return to New York, he joined an
advertising agency, became a successful, award-winning copywriter, and he developed marketing skills
that led him to becoming an independent consultant. In John’s spare time, he dabbled as a toy
inventor and developed two product lines that were met with tremendous success. Then, after a long bout with cancer, John
had afterlife experiences, which I’m anxious to hear about in this interview. John Weiss is the author of, “The Afterlife
is to Die For: Amazing Possibilities Await us All”, and his website is Afterlifeblog.com. John Weiss, welcome to We Don’t Die Radio. John: I’m very happy to be here. Sandra: Me too, I’m just smiling listening
to your bio as I read it. I’m thinking you’ve really been through a
lot, and then you said a toy inventor, I’m like wow. Who is this guy? And thankfully John, you and I haven’t spoken
too much as friends before this, so I get to hear your story fresh along with the listener. So thanks for being here, and you who’s listening
at home, thank you for being here. John, tell us a little bit about you. You’re in New York City right now. John: I’m in New York City right now, and
what I have been doing a lot other than playing with my new little granddaughter… Sandra: Oh, fun. John: I’m actually very, very hooked on her. I make leather goods and I sell ’em, and I
have been working on, you know, marketing my book because I would like to get as many
people out there to learn about it and learn what happened to me. Sandra: Yeah. John: Seeing as I hardly even believe what
happened to me anyway. Sandra: Well I’m looking forward to hearing
it ’cause I think it’s something pretty big by looking at your website and pretty unique. John: It’s very strange. Let me put it that way. Sandra: Why don’t you take us through it a
little bit? I mean, I read in your bio that you became
an independent consultant, and can I ask what toys you invented? Anything we’ve known? John: Yes. I don’t know if you’d know about them. One thing I invented, it was for a toy company
that’s out of business, actually most toy companies are going in and out of business
all the time, but it was a company called Golub that became part of Hasbro, and I invented
miniature gliders because I have a background in model airplanes. Sandra: Oh. John: So I figured out how to make a little
glider, almost the size of your thumb nail and it will fly all around the room. So they bought it from me. Then, I invented another toy and my agent
told me that if there’s any way I could start a company, I should do that because it could
be very successful and why just get royalties from a company? ‘Cause they really, the big companies pay
you very little when they get your toy. So my brother wanted to get out of real estate,
he funded the company, and we came out with a toy. The toy is called Treads, and basically what
it is is a ball where the whole outside of it is sneaker treads. That has never been done before, and it made
the ball extremely easy to throw and to catch, and we made them everywhere from baseball
sized up to playground sized, and what we didn’t realize was how easy it was for tiny,
tiny kids to catch it. So that caught on, no pun intended, and we
got a write-up in Parenting magazine, everything. All over the place. Sandra: Oh, that’s great. John: Then we realized we were getting letters
that the balls were being shredded by people’s dogs. Sandra: Oh no. John: So we — yes. Dogs will go after any kind of a ball they
see. Sandra: And they like sneakers. John: Yes. Our ball was very light rubber, ’cause we
wanted it to be safe for kids. So we came out with an extra line called Treads
Fetch, and it was dog toys. Sandra: Oh, great. John: And we formulate — we use a much heavier,
stronger rubber. Came out with the same balls, and the dogs
couldn’t ruin the balls, and that became a very big seller. When we came out with a football, we were
— our football was taken in by the Museum of Modern Art, and they displayed our ball
because of the design, which really flabbergasted us. While we were doing all of that, and the balls
were selling around the world, I invented another kind of a ball called the Pumpball,
and this ball would lay as a flat piece of rubber in your hand, and there was a little
pump on the side of it, like, you know, years ago, those sneakers used to pump up? Sandra: Yeah. John: Well this had that same kind of a pump,
and we were able to get a patent for it, and a kid could take a ball to school in his backpack
or his lunch box, or even in his pocket, pump it up, and have a great ball, play around
with it, and deflate it. Sandra: Oh, how great. John: We did TV commercials for it, we took
it to toy fairs, and we sold more than we could’ve ever dreamt of. Then, and you know, we had them on display
and they were pre-production prototypes. They worked beautifully. Then, they were shipped from China which was
the only place they could make it, and none of them worked. Sandra: Oh my gosh. I didn’t see that coming. Oh noo. John: We didn’t see it coming, it put us out
of business. Sandra: Oh… John: We lost millions of bucks. Sandra: Yeah. John: So I learned my lesson with that one. Sandra: Oh don’t you hate learning some lessons,
yes. John: Yes, that was… Sandra: You know, and I’m just being mindful
of our listener here, ’cause I want to go on and find out more about it, but our show
is about, well, death or we don’t die, and I’m thinking… John: Well, my company died. Sandra: Yeah, exactly. Well yeah, and then from there you developed
cancer? Was that after or during? It sounds like you went through a really tough
time between business… yeah. John: It was well after, well after. I was with another company, I was a marketing
director of a company in Florida, and you know, I started getting pains in my stomach,
and I didn’t — I had no idea what it was. I figured it was all the cuban food I was
eating down there. Sandra: Mmm-hmm, sure. Spicy. John: Very spicy, great, and I was living
on this stuff, and you know, I went to a “Florida doctor” who said there was nothing wrong with
me, it was just the food. So finally, after about a year, I came back
to the city and I was very weak, and I went to my doctor and he gave me all kinds of tests
and blood tests, and he said to me, “I hate to tell you, but you have cancer. And we don’t know where, we now have to scope
you all over the place.” So I found out that I had very, very advanced
cancer. Sandra: Wow. John: And this was in 2006. So I had all kinds of surgeries, it was pretty
bad. It took me — well I went from 170 pounds
to just about 90 pounds. Sandra: Oh my gosh. John: You know, and I turned like greenish-blue,
so I looked like an alien. Sandra: Wow. John: But, I was able to beat it and I took
— for a long time, I was in chemotherapy and while I was in chemotherapy, I learned
how to meditate and so, I became really good at it and I could just lose myself in it during
the day when I’m sitting in that chair. You know, that’s when they put the poison
in you, and I did it every single day for a long time. And when everything was all better, I was
in the habit of that meditating, so I continued meditating. Sandra: Great. John: And I loved it, you know. Completely put me in another world. Sandra: Yes. John: You know? Nothing paranormal, but I would lose time
and everything like that. It was just utter peacefulness. Then, years later, in 2011, I was reading
a book before I went to sleep and I read a lot of books on World War II ’cause I’m fascinated
by it, and I was reading a book on Iwo Jima, which was a major Pacific battle and after
reading the book, I meditated myself to sleep. And the following day, I remembered that I
had an incredible dream unlike anything I’d ever dreamt before, that I was actually in
the battle on the beach, in a crater, next to a soldier who I spoke to and it was fascinating,
it was very scary, and unlike other dreams, I could smell and you know, I smelled everything
around me. The machinery burning, the gunpowder, I mean,
anything you can imagine. Sandra: That’s wild. John: And — yeah, it was very wild. And I thought about it, you know, the following
afternoon, nothing much about it. That night, I continued reading my book, meditated,
fell asleep, and I woke up in the same dream, only this time I was still on Iwo Jima, I
was in the same spot, and I realized that I was dreaming while I was dreaming. And I went along with it, and this guy next
to me whose name was Lyle started talking to me, and he told me I wasn’t dreaming. So my first inclination was to — I have a
very bad mouth. I cursed at him and I said, “You’re just me.” And I met another soldier who got killed next
to me, and this guy said, “Pick up his gun and start shooting.” So I figured, hey, this is going to be a lot
of fun. I picked up the guy’s gun which was a machine
gun, and I started shooting. I was — it was morbid, but I was having a
good time and then I woke up, but I woke up right in the middle of the dream and that’s
all I could think about. Then I thought, how can I dream the same thing
twice? And so, I didn’t think anything more of it. Well the next night — excuse me for clearing
my throat, I have an allergy of all things. Sandra: That’s okay, I’m suffering a little
bit too, so I have a mute button I keep pressing. John: Oh, I don’t. You’ll have to edit this out. Sandra: Yeah, that’s alright. John: So the next night, I didn’t read the
Iwo book, I didn’t read anything and I woke up in another dream, and this one, I didn’t
know where I was. I was sitting on ice cold metal, there were
terrible noises, the thing was buzzing and rattling, and all different things. And then I see this soldier, Lyle, come walking
over. He was from my last dream, and sat down next
to me, and he says, “You know where you are?” I said of course I didn’t know where I am. He said, “Well you should know because you’ve
read all about this.” And I didn’t know what he was talking about. And he said, “You’re on a flying fortress. You’re going over the English Channel, and
we’re going to bomb Germany.” It’s another World War II thing. He said, “You’ve read all about war planes,
you’ve built models of them, you’ve watched all the movies, so you can take all that together
and with your imagination, you’re here and you can enjoy it all.” So I said, well how do you know all this about
me? And then I said, oh I know. You are me, and I’m talking to myself. And he said, “Oh no. I’m not you, but we’ll talk about it sometime.” So I said, let’s talk about it now and he
said, “No, let’s just enjoy what’s going on here.” He said, “We’ll have more of a chance.” So I’m thinking at about that point, that
there’s something wrong with me and I’m hallucinating and maybe some medication I’m taking is bad,
maybe someone played a joke on me, put drugs into something… it started to bother me
an awful lot, and the next afternoon I was at my parent’s house and my mother gave me
a shoe box of old, old, old pictures of where I grew up, up in Purchase, New York. So I was looking at them at night, I had them
on my bed. I meditated, fell asleep, and I remember lying
there and I felt very warm and itchy, and there was something crawling on my forehead. I woke up with a real start, took a big bug
off my forehead, and realized I was lying on the ground in my old backyard, and it was
very, very, very freaky. At one point, I, you know, I was scared but
I figured alright, I’m in another one of these impossible dreams, I’ll get up and I’ll walk
around. Sandra: Mmm-hmm. John: And I saw my old home, which no longer
exists… I saw everything that I grew up with as a
kid in the backyard, and as I was going towards the side of the yard, I hear a squeaking noise
and it’s my old jungle gym, and sitting on the swing was Lyle. The same guy. Sandra: Wow. John: And it actually got me very angry that,
here I am in a place that I love more than anything else, and here’s this guy, and I
remember screaming at him. I said go away, this is a very special place
for me, and he said to me, “If you want me to go away I will, and you can explore until
you wake up, but you’ll never see me again and you’ll never dream like this again.” He said, “But if you promise to let me see
you again, we’ll take the next step.” I said, what’s the next step? He said, “I’ll tell you what’s going on.” And I said, fine. I’m laughing, because I knew that whatever
this was, was some kind of a crazy dream, that I definitely had something wrong with
me. Sandra: Oh yeah, some figment of your imagination
somehow, yeah. John: Yeah, but something. I thought I had a — maybe I had a stroke,
or something. I didn’t know what was going on. So I spent the rest of the time exploring,
and after that, for several weeks, I meditated every night, he got me, and I met his girlfriend,
which is a crazy, crazy story. And I was taken to places all over the world,
and in the past, and I was taught about the afterlife, that I had entered the afterlife
through a quark which they very carefully described to me how it was done, and that
they could get me back whenever I wanted to get back. And I learned, I mean, the damndest stuff
while I was there. They took one week where they said that I
couldn’t come back, but they gave me an assignment and that was go to the book store and I had
to read a book on quantum mechanics, and I had to read a book on paranormal studies. They said to take out the simplest ones, and
I, of course, complained about the paranormal. I said, I’m not reading this. I’m not going to use the word because I’m
on radio, but it begins with s, and I said, you know, I said that’s really a lot of crap. I said, I’m not. He said, “Read it. Read this stuff.” So I figured alright, this is all crazy, I
don’t really know what’s going on, so I read the very beginner’s quantum book and I had
always heard — I knew something about quantum physics, but very little and I was blown away
by it, completely, totally blown away. Even though you couldn’t understand half of
what they were saying, it was fascinating that this stuff was actually true because
it sounds like science-fiction. Sandra: Right. I know what you mean. John: I then, with complete embarrassment,
walked into the paranormal section. This was at Borders Books, which doesn’t exist
anymore but they had a huge metaphysical, blah-blah-blah, you know… had everything
that I thought was hysterical, you know, ridiculous. So I found a book that didn’t look that horrible,
didn’t have, you know, hands appearing out of the cover and all of the junk that I figured
that would be on it. And I read it, and I was laughing, I thought
it was very funny but one thing I realized is that they kept on coming back to consciousness
and quantum theory. Sandra: Wow. John: So I saw that quantum theory and paranormal
studies are strongly linked, and that, you know, I was the worst skeptic in the world
but I thought well, you know, if something is happening to me here, this is kind of proving
certain things to me, because I learned an awful lot from this. Then finally, when I got back there, I discussed
this with Lyle and Betty, and they then said that with this quantum background, they would
tell me how I got there and how life was formed in the very beginning, and I learned an incredible,
new biological science that, you know, I of course could’ve never heard of before, nor
no one in the world has heard of it, and I of course, I didn’t believe any of it. Because all along, with everything they were
telling me, I said I still think that I’m imagining all of this. I’m going along with it, but I don’t think
any of this is real. I think there’s something seriously wrong
with me, and they said — these were very, very nice, understanding people, and they
said, “We completely understand, but we’re going to try and show you how this is all
true.” You know… we’re trying to figure out a way. So I said, well, you know, let me wake up
in the morning with a blade of grass in my hand from where we go, or a flower, or even
a pebble. They said it’s impossible to do, because you
can’t transfer anything over. So I figured oh, well alright. Well that helps my skepticism. And they said, “Well, you have to think about
it. You can’t bring things back and forth, because
if you could, everyone would know about this.” I said well, how many people know about this? They said thousands of people know about the
afterlife. They said it’s a very common thing. I said well, the only times I’ve heard about
it is from like lunatics. And they said, “Yeah, unfortunately so because
a lot of people who talk about it and believe in it are,” and they also said many, many
people who talk about it are frauds. Sandra: Yes. John: Just like palm readers. They said, “You know, there are palm readers
who are real, and we’re going to tell you all about that. But most of them are frauds.” Because if there’s any way of making money
from anything, people will do it, and anything that’s strange and mysterious, people love. They said, like all this flying saucer stuff
people talk about, and they told me that that’s not real at all. So… and, I said, you know — they said,
“How do you know it’s not real?” And also, “How do you know what’s on my mind
before I even talk about it?” And then they got very thick into quantum
theory, and what they are capable of doing, and what I am not capable of doing as a living
human being. And as I learned, the afterlife is just a
very simple extension of life. There’s no big about it at all. It’s supposed to be there, just like life
is supposed to be there, and there’s nothing strange or mysterious at all. It’s just a ramification of quantum mechanics,
because matter doesn’t die. It may shift into something else, you know,
we’re all made from the same matter that came from, initially, from the big bang. Then the other thing they told me, that — and
when I talk about this to people, like I get raised eyebrows and it’s sort of like, “Oh,
alright. We were waiting for this.” You know, now we can punch holes in you. The ability to be able to go into the afterlife
and for life itself, is all based on something that they call a particle bundle, and I can
explain later if you’re wondering how they came up with that word for it. Sandra: Okay. John: What it is, is four primary particles,
and these are the most basic particles in the universe that are, you know, infinitely
small. There are four particles that are fused together
by, they said, some cataclysmic force which was the big bang. Now these four fundamental particles have
a core in them, and I’ll explain what happens with that. And of course, we’re talking about something
that could never, ever, ever, ever be seen. Sandra: Right. John: Even with a — even through a collider,
you couldn’t see it. By the way, I’m picking up an echo. Sandra: Well you sound good on this end, so
we’re just going to keep on going. John: Okay, I’ll keep going. When you’re born, there is a particle bundle
within you. Now that doesn’t mean anything because when
you’re born, there are already trillions and trillions of particles, that you could have
a million particle bundles and it wouldn’t make any difference, but it’s in you somewhere,
completely inactive. And it stays in you as you grow, but when
you get into like the late seven months of a woman being pregnant, the particle bundle
is activated by the brain. Not consciously, it just happens because the
brain is at it’s developmental point and the electric nature of it ignites the particle
bundle. And what the particle bundle does, is it’s
basically a quantum computer. It records, and it records every single thing
you do from before you’re born until you die. It records everything in — photographically,
in all dimensions. Everything you see, hear, taste, smell, and
more because our abilities or senses are very limited. Sandra: Yes they are, that I know. John: Which all changes when you go into the
afterlife, because all the abilities — you’re unchained when you’re there. So this particle bundle is there. Now, your brain controls what the particle
bundle can and cannot do. In other words, your brain will stop a particle
bundle, it’ll stop it from allowing you to have any kind of paranormal abilities because
if there were — if the brain didn’t restrain it, we would never have a civilization. We probably would’ve either killed each other
a long time ago, or we would’ve gotten nowhere because we would’ve been too smart, too capable,
and lost in our own dreams. So that’s the particle bundle, so the particle
bundle is filled with — it’s everything you are. All of your memories, and memory is the key
to the afterlife because that’s all you take with you. Sandra: Hm, okay. That makes sense. John: When you die, and you have complete
brain death, no more electricity, no more electrical impulses, the particle bundle is
set free and it does something called quantum tunneling, and it goes a distance that’s unimaginably
short until it’s in a indistinguishable, kind of like a dimension. You’re really, really here. When the particle bundle goes through this
quantum channeling, it is bombarded by photons. Even if you have passed away in complete darkness,
there is no such a thing as complete darkness until you get into very deep space, and even
there, there’s light. Your particle bundle has the ability to remember
sight and it reacts to the light, so your consciousness is there and you see a very
bright light as your tunnel, which starts to sound like a NDE. Sandra: Right. John: Now, a lot of people claim to see loved
ones and different things like that. Well, that’s very true because those are your
dearest memories and your memories are beginning to fire up like crazy, ’cause that’s all you
are, are memories. Now, remember I mentioned that there was a
core in the particle bundle? Sandra: Yes. John: The core emanates a vibration and they
call it a signature vibration. The vibration has a frequency of it’s own,
and it’s like your fingerprints or your DNA. No two signature vibrations are the same,
and since that vibration has been there for as long as your bundle has been activated,
your loved ones all know where you are at all times. So they can visit you. They can watch over your life. They can’t have any effect on you, but they
can watch over your lives. You can’t, of course, can’t hear them because
your brain doesn’t allow it. Now let me get a little bit back into the
brain. The luckiest people are the people who have
brain malfunctions. You know they say that creative people have
a little bit of savantism in them? Sandra: Yes. John: Now, that comes from a disruption partially
of the left lobe. It’s canceling out some of the logic or whatever,
and you can have certain abilities, creativity is an ability. Now, the farther you go into savantism, it
starts at mild and it goes to profound. Profound savants are the ones who can do the
most amazing things anyone has ever seen. I don’t know if you’ve read about them. Sandra: No, not too much. John: Child savants can listen to a Beethoven
symphony and having never played a piano, go and play it from beginning to end. Sandra: That’s incredible. John: They can sculpt and bronze the most
incredible looking animals. They can paint like the most fantastic masterpieces. They are living all over the world, people
love to document them. Like the movie, “Rain Man” was about one. Sandra: Yes, yes. John: He’s one of the most profound ones. Now with — you have your profound savants. They are dysfunctional people. They appear retarded, that’s why they used
to call them idiot savants, ’til they realized that was very politically incorrect. So they just called savants. So they may be able to do nothing well, but
wherever their ability is, it’s beyond amazing. In fact, it’s impossible what they’re about
to do. Kim Peak, who is the guy about “Rain Man”,
who’s the guy who was played — who was he? I think it was… Sandra: Dustin Hoffman, yep. John: They would take a box of wooden matches,
throw all of them all the way up in the air and he would’ve counted all of them by the
time they hit the ground. Sandra: Holy cow. John: He would read books by reading the left
hand page and the right hand page simultaneously. The left with one eye, the right with the
other eye. They do the most unbelievable things, and
as I learned, this is because they have various forms of brain dysfunction which, you know,
allows the quantum bundle to operate a little bit better. And it can go on and off. Now, you know, there are a lot of people where
people think they’re crazy. When you see someone and they’re saying they’re
hearing voices, they’re swatting imaginary flies… there’s nothing wrong with them,
because they’re really experiencing that. And not all of them, of course, but if they
have been hit in the head, even mildly to cause a dysfunction, they are allowing more
to come forth from their particle bundle. That’s why some people, and of course, it’s
maybe one in a trillion can actually bend spoons. Just about all of them, you know, like Yuri
Geller are frauds, but the ability is there. The ability to levitate things is there, only
it’s ridiculously, you know… limited and the people generally who have those abilities
don’t use them to make money, because they realize how special they are. Sandra: Right. John: You know, in Manhattan, I swear to god,
you go down any block you can go down, there are least one or two psychic parlors. They’re everywhere. Sandra: They are. John: Because so many people believe in this. They’re all over the place. But… getting back to the particle bundle,
and savants, so Einstein was a savant, Thomas Jefferson, Niels Bohr, Hitler was a savant,
Beethoven. And if you read about savantism in books today,
you’ll read the most incredible people you never thought of were savants. So according to what Lyle and Betty told me,
savants are responsible for civilization because all good things, different forms of governments,
and bad things, by the way, have come from savants. But it’s more good than bad. Hitler was a savant, and they said that his
abilities, his savant abilities were in the way he could talk and manipulate people, that
he was a complete genius in doing that. So… that’s what the particle bundle is about. Now one thing I mention in my book, and that
people ask me about. You know, before all of this stuff happened
to me, another one was I a skeptic? And I’m embarrassed about what kind of a skeptic
I was. I didn’t believe in anything, and I thought
that anyone who believed in any of this stuff was crazy, that people would actually believe
that someone could read their palm, or that any of this stuff was the slightest possible. You know? Sandra: Yeah, I’m very much like you, John. I’d go through a book store and see the New
Age/Metaphysical section and I thought these poor people need to get a life. You know? They’re just grabbing at straws, hoping to
believe in something where none of it’s real. So, that’s why you and I make the perfect
messengers because… (Laughter) We started believing in it, yeah, for good
reason. John: And I was a terrible skeptic throughout
basically all of my visits there, and they were very nice about it because they totally
understand. But then, I was also an Atheist and I believed
in nothing. And my parents kept religion away from me,
they did not want me to be religious. They didn’t believe in god or anything, and
they believed that we were born and we die, and we turn to dust and that’s that. It’s like anything else. They said there’s no such a thing as religion. They said that religion is very harmful to
people, because it’s controlling. Excuse me for a second. (Clears Throat) So… they tried to brainwash me, because
the two of them were mildly religious but not really religious, and they said that I
— they wanted me to learn more about why I shouldn’t be an Atheist, and I fought them
and really fought them, but they kept on bringing — like they would take me to very holy parts
of the world, and teach me about things that went on, you know, in Christ’s time and all
these different things. And I would say to them, I don’t want to hear
any of this stuff. Please, and then they said to me, “Well, what
do you think of the particle bundle?” So I said, well, it’s a great little scientific
tool, basically, that enables life. I said in fact, that supports atheism. It’s a scientific reality, this is a little
tool, a little mechanism, and it’s responsible for all of us. And they said, “Yeah, you’re right. However, the partcicle bundles were created
at the time of the big bang.” And their only practicality is for life. And so, they knew about life at the big bang,
and I said well, I don’t know. You know… you’re confusing me. And they said, “Well think. Particle bundles allow life to go on, allow
for the afterlife, and they were formed when the universe was formed.” He said, “So you don’t have to believe in
God, we just want you to believe in a creator, that there��������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������
is a cosmic intelligence out there that’s responsible for,” you know, “Basically everything
because if they’re responsible for the particle bundle, which is a little miracle thing, which
didn’t evolve from anything, it was just there.” Then I started weakening, I’ll put it that
way. And… I went so far as to believe that, you know,
maybe there is something to it. I don’t believe in, you know, a guy in the
clouds in a white robe who answers prayers, or who doesn’t, but something intelligent
created these things. This was no coincidence. Sandra: John, can I ask you, when you had
these experiences, were they as real — you know, ’cause some dreams, you can kind of
remember. Are these of the kinds that you woke up and
you’re just, like they were so real? Like any day you’ve ever had, was it like
that? John: They were happening in my life. Sandra: Yeah, they were real then. Really real. Real. John: Well, I knew that I was dreaming. I knew that when I went to sleep, I was going
to be. I didn’t know where they were going to be
taking me, but I knew all of that. I finally, you know, and I realized I wasn’t
getting any work done. I lost clients. Sandra: Oh, sure. Yeah. John: And all I could do was think about it. I couldn’t wait to get to sleep the next night
to go there, and I was infatuated with it, and I was the one, and they agreed, and I
stopped going ’cause I stopped meditating. Because I know that if I didn’t meditate,
they couldn’t get me. Sandra: Oh. John: Now I asked them, you know, was this
like winning a lottery? Getting this, and they said, “Well the odds
are even worse than winning a lottery.” And I said, “Well how did this happen?” (Clears Throat) Sorry. Sandra: It’s okay. John: They said that, as they explained to
me earlier, all you bring to the afterlife are your memories, and they’re so vivid that
they’re real life, and since you can remember how to see, you can see. Since you remember how to eat, you can eat. Since you remember what food is, you can create
it in your mind and you have to read my book to see this stuff. You can go out for dinner in the afterlife. Sandra: Oh, that’s funny. John: In your mind. Sandra: Okay. John: In fact, I’m not even going to go into
a lot of stuff that they do because there’s stuff that I didn’t put in my book, ’cause
I thought that people may not want to hear that. Sandra: Okay. John: But… Sandra: We have about ten minutes left, so
I just want to be mindful of time here. John: Alright, I’ll be very quick about this
and then I’ll… they said that, just like there are here, there are affinity groups. There are people who have very, very strong
memories about things and they get together, and they recreate part of something that happened
in their lives. I was in an Iwo Jima creation, recreation,
and Lyle picked up my signature vibration, that there was someone else here who shouldn’t
be here, and he joined my vibration to his, which is what you do when you meld memories
and all of a sudden, I was there with him and this other guy because they were there
together to experience something that had happened to one of them. And when I was on the mission in the airplane,
that was an affinity group, and they have affinity groups for anything and everything
that goes on in life. There are food groups, reading groups, movie
groups, you name it. Sandra: Wow. John: That’s what they do in the afterlife. And, you can create anything you want out
of your imagination. They have me — they showed me how to build
a car. It was done out in Colorado in the mountain
roads, and right now, I have goosebumps thinking about what I was able to do. And they pulled it out of my mind, and since
it was my imagination working, I actually had a car that I could get in, start the motor,
and drive like a maniac. And that car is a very important part of the
ending of the book. Sandra: I’m really excited to read it, because… John: And that car is waiting for me when
I die. They promised it’s there, so I have that to
think about. Now… what I said to them was, you know,
if everyone knew this, people would just slit their wrists. And they said, “Well, a lot of people have.” You know, it’s sort of frowned upon but people
do it. They said, “But people have also been told
that the more wonderful memories that you bring with you, and the more people you can
meet, the better your afterlife is going to be.” Sandra: I like that. John: Now, the afterlife is not eternal. You’re there for roughly 140 years, and then
that’s that. Sandra: Okay. Then what? I’m like okay… John: No one knows. Sandra: This is all so new to me, but so many
things… John: Can I get into that for a second? Sandra: Yeah. John: Okay. One thing I’ve learned since my experiences
and looking at other books, no one’s afterlife experience is the same. Your experience is based on what you believe,
what you want to believe, and who is in control of you when you go there, because someone
has to be in control of you if you’re still alive, to enable you to do anything there. Now, if you look at the book which I read
called, “Heaven is For Real”. Sandra: Yes, I know that book. John: 100% difference from anything I had. Now, this is was a very religious little kid,
from a very religious family and his afterlife, he saw Jesus, Moses, he saw everyone from
his learnings. Sandra: Right. John: If I had been like that, I may have
gone through the same things. Now in my early days of learning about this,
I met someone over the internet because I was trying to get my book onto sites, and
this — I forget the guy’s name, he was a doctor, and he said, “This sounds very interesting.” He says, “I’m going to read your book.” So — and this was all done over the e-mails. He called me the worst things you could ever
call anyone, that I was the worst liar, fraud, and I should be banned from this genre. And, I, of course, was very startled and I
said, what? He said, “You never went to the afterlife.” He said, “People who have say specific things
about it.” I said oh, you’re going to tell me that I
wasn’t in the afterlife, but you’re going to believe someone elses?” Sandra: Right. John: So I started realizing that there are
so many wonderful books out there, you know, I don’t know how many are real or aren’t real. And I learned, you know, forgetting my skepticism,
some of this stuff I saw there was really weird, but it really happened to me. So I have to give it the benefit of the doubt
to any of these books. That yeah, these people really did experience
something incredible. Sandra: Yeah. For as many people there are, even if I were
to explain what life is like, someone else would have a different story. So I think afterlife would be the same, and
then there’s a book called “Proof of Heaven” by Dr. Evan Alexander. He’s got some weird stuff in his book too. You know? John: They’re all going to have some weird
stuff. Sandra: Yeah, so… you know, to me, it’s
all proof that we do go on, and we just have different experiences. And it’s all very comforting to know, and
if we can, just in the last few minutes that we have. Your subtitle — well, first of all, the name
of your book is, “The Afterlife is to Die For: Amazing Possibilities Await us All” and
again, your website is Afterlifeblog.com. John Weiss is this great person’s name that
we’re talking to right now. But the amazing possibilities that await us
all, so for those 140 years, it sounds to me like we can create whatever we want. We’re with people. John: We are with people, and they’re no different
up there than they are — I say up there ’cause it’s more — it’s right here. Sandra: Yes, yes. That’s how I feel too, in the invisible space
vibrating around us. John: But they’re all over you, and they’re
in your head because that’s one of the ways they experience things. They can’t affect you, but they’re all over
the place. It’s called particle alignment, bundle alignment,
because you can align with someone else’s bundle in their body. Sandra: You know… John, I just took a course in mediumship in
the UK. In fact, that’ll be my next episode, the one
after yours will be my discussing what happened and beyond a shadow of a doubt, over and over
and over, I experienced miraculous things and one of the explanations is that those
folks, let’s call it in the hereafter, are trying to change their vibration to meet up
with us and by going into like a meditative state, you know, I’m trying to blend my energy
with them and just from what you’re saying now about the particle alignment and the particle
bundle, like I can’t wait to read your book right now. I’m going on vacation, so I’m going to take
it with me on Kindle. But I think this is fascinating. It’s making sense why some of this, if you
want to call it paranormal or metaphysical or whatever, but like, why it works. John: Yeah. And you know who’s the leading authority on
it now? Sandra: No. John: Einstein. Sandra: Really? John: His affinity group in the afterlife,
which is made up of the most profound scientific minds over the last 140 years, study this. That’s where they came up with particle bundles,
particle alignment, and all of this stuff, because it used to be — the afterlife is
just like here. They didn’t know where anything came from. They didn’t know what was going on. They were there. Now, some people have put reasons to it. So it’s no different there than it is here. Sandra: Jeez. Oh John Weiss, thank you. Our time’s coming to an end, I don’t want
to cut you off, but do you have any closing words? Because life can be tough sometimes, and yeah. Any tip for living now, knowing what you know? John: Meet as many people as you can, learn
what they’re all about, accept these people, and just gain great memories. The better the memories, the better you’re
going to be in the afterlife. And just, you know, if you’re grieving for
someone, realize and as I put in one of my tweets, your deceased loved ones are grieving
for you because you’re living. And the other thing is, is that don’t worry,
you’re not going to hell because there is no hell. Sandra: That’s good news. John: There’s no heaven either, but you’d
swear that the afterlife was it because if you want it to be, it will be heaven. It definitely will be heaven. Sandra: Oh, that’s amazing. John, thank you. Thank you. John: Well thank you. No, thank you for listening to me. Sandra: Well it’s — I just love learning
new things, and this is so out of anything I’ve learned. It’s eye-opening, it’s exciting, and I am
excited about getting your book, and once again, for our listener, his website is Afterlifeblog.com,
and the name of John Weiss’ book is, “The Afterlife is to Die For: Amazing Possibilities
Await us All”. You’ve really left me, John, on the edge of
my seat with — I want to know more, what a great, great book. John: I want to know more about your mediumship. Sandra: Oh, well we’ll talk. John: Okay, good. Sandra: Yeah, we’ll definitely keep in touch
after this ’cause it’s all very exciting. And for our listener, I want to thank you
for spending this past hour with us. I hope you’ve found it a value, and it really
has been pretty wild. I’m sure John, before this journey, you probably
never thought you’d be telling a story like this in your life. John: I would’ve thought anyone who thought
I would, would be crazy. Sandra: Yeah, I agree. Me too. I was afraid — oh my gosh, I can’t believe
I’m the same Sandra. Well, I know I’m different but just that I’m
doing what I’m doing. But anyways, thank you all for being here
today. I want to remind everybody, you can go to
Wedontdieradio.com and find out more about John Weiss. He is episode number 99, so I have his picture
there and links to his website and to his book, and what else do I want to tell you? Just my mind is blown. I want to thank everybody for being here. In closing, my name is Sandra Champlain, I’ve
been your host on We Don’t Die Radio, and I do believe that life is an education for
the soul, and that your life here on Earth is important. So I’m going to take John’s challenge and
meet as many people as I can, have new experiences, ’cause yeah, I want to take that with me. So thank you for listening, and we’ll see
you soon. (Music)

  1. i am well versed on all things metaphysical including quantum mechanics & certainly open 2 having my current paradigm tweaked, so i found the particle bundle theory to be a fresh perspective, however, this guy lost me when he said that ufo's weren't real. i then immediately put on my discernment cap; i feel he experienced a parallel reality/other dimension…all very real, but not the afterlife, otherwise he is discrediting many thousands of accounts….just my 2 cents. very interesting interview none the less!

  2. oh. my. god. it is such an enormous treat, sandra, to get to hear on your show all the varied experiences people have in the 'other realms'. and john weiss, major wow!, has a truly unique, paradigm-opening story to tell. i didn't 'resonate' with every single thing he said (ie, meet as many people as you can — ok, that must be important to do if it's an important thing to you personally, but for another person something else might be a higher priority; it just depends on who you are and what your life's about… except for love, there no truly hard and fast rules, yes?), but the overall info/message is pretty jaw-dropping and a lot of it feels to make sense. thank you, sandra and john!

  3. ….and prayers DO get answered, even though John Weiss says he does not believe this! Also, Heaven is for Real was written by the Burpo family after Carlton so called experience which did not add up to be honest. Read Swedenborg, and check out Swedenborg Foundation. They are more realistic than these guys.

  4. Was it Swedenborg who described the afterlife ~ the dark-hearted band together, and think they are doing what they want where they want, continuing their destructive habits, looking normal to one another, but when someone with more light/love looks at them, they see orcs and trolls snarling in the cracks of Mordor . .
    Eventually they can decide to listen to reason, go towards the light.. to higher planes.

  5. "But in those unconscious depths which he does not reach with his waking consciousness but which yet belong to his existence and in which he lives between going to sleep and waking, something quite different concerning the universe flows into his soul. There lives in the human soul a knowledge which, although unknown to the waking consciousness, is yet present in the depths and moulds the soul — a knowledge of the spirit, of the life of the soul, of the life of the cosmos. And although in his waking consciousness man knows nothing of what goes on there in communion with the spirit, soul and life of the universe while he sleeps — in the soul the things are there; they live within it. And much of the great discord felt by modern man is derived from the disharmony between what the soul experiences and what the waking consciousness acknowledges as its world-conception."
    Rudolf Steiner, 1919

  6. “He saw and knew that the Cosmos is not dead matter but a living Presence, that the soul of man is immortal, that the universe is so built and ordered that without any peradventure all things work together for the good of each and all, that the foundation principle of the world is what we call love and that the happiness of every one is in the long run absolutely certain.”
    Richard Bucke MD, 1901
    'Cosmic Consciousness: A Study in the Evolution of the Human Mind'

  7. "I clung to my friend. We turned aside from the contemplation of the road. A sense of motion, bewilderment, increasing light, intense living radiance, and then—-who can describe the indescribable? Time had disappeared, space was no longer existing. I was overpowered by my own insignificance. How mean, how small an atom I was of this unutterable greatness; yet one with it, born of it, belonging to it. I realized this, even with my sense of smallness, and knew that, mean and poor as I was, I was yet a part of this undying, infinite, indestructible whole; that without me it would not be complete.

    The light of this great life penetrated me, and I understood,—understood that thoughts were the only real tangible substances and why, between my friend and me, utterance was not needed. The secrets of life and death were unveiled and the meaning became plain. The reason of sin and suffering, the everlasting struggle towards perfection were evident; how each atom of life had its appointed place into which it fitted as no other atom could; how each change and evolution brought it nearer to its goal. As desire arose within me I found the means of grasping it. Knowledge was mine. I had only to desire and it was in my grasp."

    'Shadowland' Elisabeth d’Esperance 1897

  8. I enjoyed this conversation and learnt things amazing..Thanks Sandra for your website I am listening to all listened to over 10 episodes now and thanks for the learning.! I am getting.!!

  9. I read his book and it's very interesting 🙄 you know this is so unbelievable and the guy is such a skeptic that I have no doubt that this happened to him.
    And one thing that gives it credibility is that there is no way that you can dream like this , it's a storyline like a movie, and regular dreams are just random weird shit that doesn't make any sence..
    Also all the information wish he gives in detail is just too scientific for this guy to just have dreamed all this up😄 has definitely not lying

  10. Great interview. Just as we all don't have the same experiences on Earth (except maybe how we come into the world), NDE'ers will not have the same experiences in the spirit world. That's one of the things I got from this conversation, among many other thoughts!

  11. I have an nde ( like dead) you need to allow your experience and knowledge to address your topics with less authority ,,you might want to start by staying away from the topic of ufos ,,, main stream you tube might be a good start to conduct your research,,,at the same time your an inteligent action orientated nice person ,,and i sense very creative

  12. I can't believe you never heard about the kid that speaks any language perfect after just some days or the one who looks at Notre dame for 90 seconds and draws it in every little detail. The kid who plays any symphony on a piano after just listening to it one single time! My mind went to them straight away when he started talking about brains

  13. I get a lot of comfort listening to your positive voice at bedtime 🌙. Your guests provide the extra comfort and it's like having friends next to you. Thank you so much for your programs.

  14. All you are can't be memories because you had to have something to retain memory in order to experience memories. It is thoughts and memories that you experience. You are existence, the observer

  15. This is a good story, among the best..I've listened to nearly every NDE on YouTube because I like good bedtime stories.

  16. The afterlife only last 140 years? First I heard a time existed except here on earth. What happens after that?
    Millions of NDE's, everyone experiences it differently. It's as real as any plane of existence.
    I dream of a cozy fire in a country home, which sits down a country lane, that horse drawn carriage drives down,…lots of home cooked food and companies coming. Peace, quiet, love and tenderness, sitting in front of a warm fire as the landscape outside's covered with fresh glistening snow. Beauty as a postcard.

  17. It's more than memories, many NDErs meet their grandparents and know they were their grandparent even thou they died long before they were born I have studied these subjects for all most 40 years never heard of 140 years in the afterlife, he may want to read Seth Speaks.

  18. As an absolute believer in the NDE
    And who keeps an open mind on all matters….My spirit was sending red flags on his so called knowledge of the afterlife.
    More than any other guest you've had on your show.

    Your a very nice and passive host
    But there where so many comments he made that were so questionable and screamed out for further clarity.

    In all honesty I was disappointed in your lack of any critical questioning at all.
    You came across as a host hanging on his every word like it was the gold standard.

    By the way I have almost 20 years of experience researching the afterlife…..And he came across to me as one of the most skeptical and non believable experiences.

  19. Sorry, not buying this one. Not that his experiences aren't happening or aren't real – they likely are. I don't resonate with his take on things. "That's all we are is memories." Oh, really? LOL.

    We are consciousness, & a lot more than memories that is. Heck, at our core, we are Source-in-form – a far cry from just memories. He's trying to use his mind to evaluate what's so far beyond the mind as to be laughable. Our language is linear, one letter/word/sentence at a time. "The other side" is not linear, not bound by the same constraints. Thus, our experiences in the "beyond" don't fit well into words, which can only shine a light in their general direction. It takes Heart to interpret, to give us the experience, the innerstanding.

    As consciousness, our native realm is infinity/eternity, so no doubt the "places" he visits exist, & they're interesting. He doesn't seem to have connected with the spiritual aspect of things, for lack of better words. He's not speaking from the Oneness so often encountered or he wouldn't likely have picked up the machine gun & started randomly shooting. Actions have consequences. If not, what is their point, why bother?


  20. Dreaming doesn't mean unreal, it just means being out of the body. If we say only 3D is "real life," we shortchange ourselves – grossly. The body-mind is more like a costume we take on to play our part in the play in whatever dimension we're experiencing; it is NOT who or what we are. We are consciousness. We are eternal.

    Time, as we experience it here, is totally dependent on this planet, its relationship to our sun. Our sense of time is not relevant anywhere else in this dimension, much less in those others we visit out of the body in dreams. So the 140-years thing is highly questionable.

    If he would just realize that we are consciousness, it would make perfect sense that our beliefs impact (or help create) our experiences. So of course, the religious believer likely has a different experience of "the other side." In all of infinity/eternity, we can craft whatever experience we choose. Consciousness actually creates, so the various dimensions are the realm of effects, not causes.

    It's just amazing how relative everything is, here. It all depends on our perspective, beginning to end. Ten ppl see the same car accident, but write-up 10 different reports. We just THINK we live in the same world, ROFL. There's great laughter the more we wake up – & it's mostly at the self, making it even better. 😀


  21. I'm learning to never discount other people's experiences just because they are so different than my own. This was a very interesting interview; thank you Sandra and you truly are a good interviewer as you allow your guest to speak without a constant interruption as many others do.

  22. I mean.. if all we take are our memories what about the babies we are starving? That’s what they’re taking ? Jeez

  23. I think that pretty much ALL those who have had these experience say that it was hyper real, no one kept questioning the experience to the magnitude this man claimed to have done, i fact the reality of it seems almost instantaneous with most all of them. I sensed "deferred truth" … he was talking about fraud early on, laying the path, then hoping someone steps into the trap at the end when he offered the book to explain it in more detail. Linear time does not exist in the spiritual realms, and i have a problem with Einsteins spiritual endeavor. I surmise this man is not truthful, and is still a full blown atheist who is looking for a good payday. its a form of the bait and hook technique where the very frauds he spent time discussing, deploy, and it was well done, i listened to much of the interview before picking up on it. In editing i will say that had he left out the 140 year part, it was a better story, but i suspect he personally felt the need to stroke his ego as it relates to atheism because he ended it with a form of annihilationism, without the religious connotation… Many blesses, i do enjoy your show.
