#1 ADC Book -  Hello from Heaven! by Bill Guggenheim & Judy Guggenheim

Book Review - Visions of the Bereaved, Hallucination or Reality by Kay Witmer Woods, Ph.D.


We analyzed 238 contributions to our ADC website form exploring the relationship between the deceased and the person reporting the ADC. We found that 46 (19%)of the contacts occurred within 24 hours or less. Interestingly, 35 (76%) of the 46 contacts occurred between blood relatives. Only 5 (14%) occurred between significant others. 
A BIG THANKS goes out to those who submitted their experiences on the website so that we can gain important insights into the ADC phenomena!


COLLEEN S:  So does the "research" show that other people have these dreams?  What other thoughts do you have on these death dream scenarios?

JODY:  I, personally, think that being in an altered state of consciousness (the dream) makes it easier for loved ones who have passed to communicate with us on earth.  Far from being non-evidential, I would argue to the contrary.  The way that we process our reality is that before our subconscious will alert our conscious mind, the input must pass a threshold test.  If it is important then the subconscious will allow the input to move into our rational, or conscious level of mind.  In the dream state, this threshold may well be less since we do not have the waking overload of input from the 5 senses.  Therefore, communication that may normally be able to occur in a dream or drowsy state, would reach us easier than in the waking state of consciousness.

FUNNY FACT   England is old and small and the local folks started running out of places to bury people. So in the 1500's they would dig up coffins and would take the bones to a "bone-house" and reuse the grave. When reopening these coffins, 1 out of 25 coffins were found to have scratch marks on the inside and they realized they had been burying people alive. So they thought they would tie a string on the wrist of the corpse, lead it through the coffin and up through the ground and tie it to a bell. Someone would have to sit out in the graveyard all night (the "graveyard shift") to listen for the bell; thus,  someone could be "saved by the bell" or was considered a "dead ringer."

FUNNY FACT    In the 1500's, lead cups were used to drink ale or whiskey. The combination would sometimes knock them out for a couple of days. Someone walking along the road would take them for dead and prepare them for burial. They were laid out on the kitchen table for a couple of days and the family would gather around and eat and drink and wait and see if they would wake up. Hence the custom of holding a "wake."

The Afterlife - ADC Humor

An elderly couple made a deal that whoever died first would somehow come back to inform the other of the afterlife... their biggest fear being that there really was no heaven.

After a long life, the husband was the first to go and, true to his word, a few weeks later as his wife sat and watched TV, she heard a ghostly voice saying, "Maude ...Maude ... "

"Is that you, John?" she asked as she looked in vain around the room, and the voice responded, "Yes Maude, I've come back just like we agreed."

"What's it like, John?" Maude asked.

John said, "Well, I get up in the morning and I have sex. Then I have breakfast, and after that more sex. I bathe in the sun for awhile and then I have sex twice. I have lunch, then have sex pretty much all afternoon. After dinner, I have sex until late at night ... and the next day it starts all over again."

"Oh, John," Maude said, "then surely you must be in heaven!"

"Not exactly," John said ..."I'm a rabbit somewhere in Wyoming."



READER:  How do I know that the experience was real and how do I communicate with my loved ones again? 

First of all, thanks for sharing your experience.  As you know, we are researching answers to questions such as you pose.  We highly encourage people to share via the webform in order to better understand the ADC phenomena.    We really don't have enough data to answer your question scientifically.  I do know that many ADCs occur in all states, such as the dream state, the waking state, the meditative state, and etc.  I also have a good understanding of how we process information and how we access memories. 
However, many questions on classifications of states and whether or not communications from the other side are authentic, still are fairly subjective.  And as you recognize, it isn't easy to distinguish the line between reality and wishful thinking.  You'll have to decide that one for yourself. 

ADCs seem to be a gift to the recipient on earth to tell them that life goes on, and in most cases, it is much better than when the deceased person was here on earth. 

One of the more interesting things about studying ADCs is the aftereffects when the living person integrates such events with their every day reality.  As you are now doing, you are making some large leaps and bounds into the spiritual arena - you are asking questions and wanting to learn more about life and death.  The path will take you in some very amazing directions.  The person you are now, will not be the same in a year from now.  That is spiritual growth.  Had your life remained static, you probably would not have grown as much or in this particular direction.
I have many readers that tell me about searching in various areas.  They immerse themselves in reading books, meditation, nature, religious pursuits, or taking classes on psychic phenomena such as out of body experiences.  Please recognize that this list is not all-inclusive, just suggestions.  Another good thing to do is to look at the other two websites that we have and  All three websites give a rounded picture of what the consciousness is and how it appears in different states. 
There are no quick and easy answers that are right for everyone.  I have given you some options - now you can pick which one you are most likely to benefit the most from.
Good Luck in you search!
Take care,
Jody Long, Webmaster


Here's a sample of the newest experiences below -

Maggie M's ADC 8/18/04 
I opened my eyes widely and was keenly aware that I was going to experience something incredible. I looked into my pillow and breathed very slowly. My father's face began to appear two inches from my face. The image remained translucent, as I could see my pillow through him. I did not speak, because I just "knew" to look back at him. His face was as his age depicted at the time of his death. He looked at me in the most loving way I EVER remember.
ADC from father.

Valerie V's ADCs 8/18/04  The telephone rang. I had a phone right by my bed and I got off the bed and answered it. A voice said "Valerie". I said "Mony!" She said "You get up out of that bed right now, do you understand me?" And I replied "Yes Mony". I couldn't believe it. It was my grandmother who had passed on 8 months earlier.
Two ADCs, one from son and the other from her grandmother.

Rebecca R's ADC 8/18/04 All of a sudden I felt a complete sense of calm and opened my eyes.  I was looking at the ceiling fan and saw it start to go around very slowly about ten times like it was being pushed around.  I did not have the fan on as I was very cold and even had a cover on top me.  I knew immediately it was Tim. 
ADC from son who also contacted other members of the family.

Franny P's ADC 8/18/04
Had a dream about my late grandmother calling me on a phone.  The phone was not my phone, though.  I was my future phone, as will be stated in this statement.  She said that she was fine, was having fun, and I could hear her "friends" laughing in the background.  She showed me a baby boy, sitting on a blanket, on a tile floor.  Then she showed me my house.  She kept saying that everything would  be fine.  That I'd be worried, but she would always be there, and everything would work itself out. Prophetic dream ADC

Simon H's ADC 8/18/04  From Sweden  She came to me when i was asleep. at first I didn't know who she was, but then she make me remember. I remembered her from an old photography I saw once when I was a very little boy.  Then she said that she was going to say a very important thing and that I should listen very carefully.  She said that buildings should be trethered(sp?) but only two shall brake and those buildings who shall break were twins
ADC message from grandmother regarding the World Trade Center bombing.

Jennifer C's ADC 8/18/04  the voice i heard came from outside under our window.  there was no one there. i had been waiting for some confirmation from Shane that he was okay, and receiving this message on Easter a.m. meant for me, that he was resurrected, and very much okay.
ADC from son.

Adam S's ADC 7/26/04 
Dream ADC with a lot of energy.

 Ramona V's ADC/NELE 7/25/04 It was my deceased father, full form, glowing.  I felt confused at first thinking, I see my father?  But then I took inside all the details of seeing him.  I slowly looked him over from head to toe, taking in all the details of his body, the clothes he was wearing, and the position he was standing in room.  He actually wasn't standing directly on the floor.  He was raised up somewhat but yet it appeared as if he was standing on solid ground but I saw nothing beneath his feet.  And I noticed he had shoes on with shoe laces.  He was so ill before he died that he no longer wore his shoes but had slip on leather house shoes he wore.
Mother saw her father come to guide her son to the other side. (NELE nearing end of life experience)

Tom L's ADC 7/25/04 I immediately saw her sitting on my bed and she appeared possibly about as she did when she was about 65, sort of as I remember her, and I was so extremely surprised to see her so vividly.  I am disabled including with a non-functional left arm, but was able to hug her with both arms and literally feel her by both arms around her neck and back.  I told her I love you and she softly smiled her usual way and disappeared.  But I felt her tell me yes before she left.
