Product Description


You are likely to come away from reading this book feeling that you have at least a general idea of what to expect when you die. And that can be quite sobering, as Michael Tymn intends it to be." Stafford Betty, Ph.D. author of "The Afterlife Unveiled."

Michael Tymn's conclusions about dying and the afterlife are provocative, exciting and well-researched, and a welcome addition to the growing conversation among scientists and spiritual leaders about the true nature of human consciousness. Highly recommended." Michael Schmicker author of "Best Evidence."

The author counters the religious views of 'heaven' and 'hell' with more credible and rationally acceptable descriptions of an afterlife comprising levels of spiritual development in which there is self-examination of the life just lived, rather than having judgment passed by some authoritarian deity. One of the most engrossing accounts of the afterlife I have read." - Howard A. Jones, Ph.D. Author of "The Thoughtful Guide to God" & "The World as Spirit."

"Michael Tymn presents credible evidence obtained from mediumship and the near-death experience to reveal what awaits us after death of the physical body. Author Tymn writes about the certainty of a future life based upon transmitted fact and not on belief. Good reading!" John L. Turner, M.D., author of "Medicine, Miracles and Manifestations.”

Format: Paperback
This book is full of interesting tales garnered from a multitude of authors in which spirits of the deceased, speaking through mediums - or through their automatic writing - tell us what life is like on `The Other Side'. It seems to confirm the notion that there are seven planes or spheres through which we pass as we develop spiritually, after death. It suggests that we need to become knowledgeable about the nature of post-mortem life if we are to progress successfully, both in this life and the next. I found the book absorbing and read it at a single sitting.

Mike Tymn offers an interpretation of what all the information he has amassed might reasonably suggest to us, not just about the Afterlife but about the purpose of life here-and-now. I found his perceptions resonated with me.

This author has already written a book entitled `The Articulate Dead' which concentrates on the evidence for life after death. This new book is more anecdotal and much of its evidence - spirits offering their views and knowledge - is less empirically verifiable, although it is clear that the writings he reviews come from reliable and authentic contributors to the subject. Many of these are illustrious academics, for example Sir Oliver Lodge, Sir William Barrett, Professor William James; people as fascinated by this issue and its implications as Tymn is himself. His aim is to show that when a variety of statements are made through different mediums in different countries and at different times - all offering remarkably similar descriptions of the nature of the Afterlife - then surely there is something `real' about what they are saying, and it deserves to be taken seriously.

This is an excellent book, packed with quotes and anecdotes, and written with passionate engagement. While it's true that the ground is becoming quite well trodden, this is definitely one of the best examples of the genre. Tymn's knowledge of mediumship is second to none, and his commentary is wise and insightful.

Tymn has harsh things to say about the philosophy of materialism, which he says has reduced many people to 'hedonistic materialists, consumed with the pursuit of pleasure and sensory gratification.' He laments the failure of organized religions to address the issue of afterlife. In writing this book, he says, he hopes that at least some people might 'begin to visualize a spirit world, thereby helping them make friends with death, at the same time making this life more meaningful.' Also, knowing about how things work on the other side can make passing a good deal easier, he adds.

Nine chapters trace various topics, starting with the emergence of mediums and their study in the nineteenth century, deathbed visions, the process of separating from the body, the transition stage after death through Hades conditions and the 'second death', the life review, the different spheres or planes, the creative power of thought and imagination and the consequences of dying with unfinished business. A short final chapter describes what little can be said about the higher spheres, and there are appendices that discuss cases of precognition of death, the effects of suicide and the question of whether or not reincarnation occurs.

Tymn mentions evidential cases, such as the deathbed visions where the 'spirit' forms that gathered round the patient's bed included, to her great surprise, an individual she did not know was dead.

The Afterlife Revealed: What happens after we die, by Michael Tymn, White Crow Books, 2011, 198 ff

Illuminating insights into popular afterlife visions
By Howard Jones

In his earlier book, `The Articulate Dead', Tymn used evidence presented by a number of well-known psychical researchers and mediums to argue rationally for the reality of a continuation of the life of the soul after mortal death. In this book he uses similar mediumistic accounts to give some sort of picture of what the afterlife is like. It is reassuring that the account he gives is similar in many respects to the transcendental visions of the near-death experience - as the author says in his Preface: `in understanding death, in embracing death, we come to understand life and better enjoy it.' Tymn shows us how a `habitual spiritual consciousness' is needed to replace the materialistic outlook of the present time - not living in some continual mesmeric trance but living our earthly life with purpose and certainty that it is part of a much more extensive state of being. Orthodox religion has failed totally to provide us with such a meaningful world-view. Tymn's account of the afterlife presents a far more plausible state than the Christian promises of heaven or threats of hell.

In his introductory chapter Tymn expands on the inadequacy of the representations of the afterlife by orthodox religion and he goes on to show how mediums over the past century have served as messengers providing reassurance that mortal death does not mean extinction of the soul. There are extended descriptions of deathbed visions of the dying given or confirmed by those who attended the subjects as they passed over: many of the authors are well-known contemporary researchers into death and dying.
