Colton Burpo (Heaven is for Real)

The incredible near death experience of 4 year old Colton Burpo has been made into a movie

Heaven is for Real….the New York Times bestseller featuring the incredible near death experience and spiritual revelations reported by a 4 year old boy who was brought back from a very close brush with death and proceeded to amaze, inspire a community (and eventually a worldwide) audience with the wisdom he gleaned from “the other side”.

Was the experience true…..or just the wild imagination of a young child you had an incredibly scary brush with death?

Of course most of our readers who are familiar with NDE’s and the millions of people who share the incredibly similar spiritual transformation that they bring on will say they are 100% real, but these stories, especially when they reach the mainstream and are subject to lots of conversation from ALL sides of the spiritual or skeptical fence are a good thing for all.

The movie is slated for an April 2014 release – read more about it at the link below.

The film stars Oscar nominee Greg Kinnear as Todd Burpo, a small-town businessman, volunteer firefighter and pastor struggling to make ends meet in a tough year for his family. Newcomer Connor Corum plays the oracular Colton, and Kelly Reilly as the wife and mother, Sonja.

In 2010, a book by an unknown author, which reached curious readers entirely by word-of-mouth, unexpectedly hit the vaunted top position of the New York Times bestseller list.  This was Burpo and Vincent’s Christian book, “Heaven Is For Real,” which  would go on to sell millions of copies with over 10 million in print worldwide. It has been translated into 35 languages.

The soaring journey of the book began with a parent’s worst nightmare:  A sick little boy whom doctors said was unlikely to survive.  But just when the doctors had given up hope, Colton, by divine miracle, came through his sickness.  After he recovered, he began to tell an incredible story about his journey to heaven, and how he had been shown a realm of indescribable beauty and supreme peace, even meeting deceased relatives he had never known personally.

Real Psychic Readings

How can you tell if a psychic is genuine?

More importantly….how can you tell if a psychic rating or review is REAL?

With so many people recommending psychic readers these days online, it’s sometimes difficult to find an HONEST review or writeup that you can really trust.

Here is the straight scoop on REAL psychic readings you can trust, and why it’s often a lot harder to find honest information than many people realize.

1 – Many psychic reviews are written by affiliates – or by marketers, rather than folks who are truly interested in mediums! Check out the example site at the link below – they APPEAR to be a psychic review site that is genuinely writing about psychic experiences and readings, but in truth…they are actually an affiliate – using a fake profile – to sell a specific psychic service. (note – they are actually recommending Psychic Source, a service we use and recommend as well – but the point is, they are doing it under false pretenses to earn a commission. When you buy a reading from a psychic or service we recommend – they compensate us in some way – either through free readings or payment of some type – and you need to know that when signing up for a service based on our recommendation)

2 – Any psychic service that advertises themselves as 100% free…..is going to be a scam. There is no “future” (no pun intended) in advertising free readings……as obviously, if you are paying to advertise and then giving stuff away, at the end of the day, you don’t need to be able to predict the future to realize you will be BROKE! 100% free psychic services are more akin to bait and switch style car dealers, and there is ALWAYS a catch. Period.

3 – Your best bet when calling online psychics? Set a budget and stick to it. You CAN get a great reading for 10 or 20 or even 50 dollars on the high side on a first time call, and there are many reputable networks that offer great deals for folks looking for psychic advice by phone, and are willing to pay a few bucks to have a reading. (again – $10 on the low side for a 10 minute session – up to $50 or so SHOULD get you enough real information to decide whether or not you want to have a future relationship with a specific psychic or service)

Check out Psychic Source HERE for some great rates for first time callers – or simply browse around the web for other alternatives that may work equally as well for you.

And…..if you want to see a FAKE psychic review site….check out the link following the short excerpt below.

Getting a psychic reading can be an exciting and insightful experience. A true psychic can reveal incredible information about your future, or even provide helpful advice on a problem that you need help resolving. Unfortunately, there is a large number of companies on the internet claiming to be “clairvoyant” and calling themselves “the best psychic in the world”.

But with so many different psychic readers to choose from, how can you be sure which psychics are real and which ones are fake?

My name is Linda Wristen, and I created this blog to help people find a legitimate psychic reading and avoid many of the common scams that are floating around the internet. I’ve been consulting with psychic advisors for the past 6 years, and I’ve learned a lot through my journey. On this blog, I’m going to share with you my top recommended psychics, how to avoid getting scammed, and what you can learn from a psychic reading.

Is Life After Death True? The 10 Best Pieces of Evidence for an Afterlife

What is the best evidence for an afterlife?  Does it come from religion?   Is the Bible the best source of information regarding life after death?  Or, can one have NO real religion…..yet still have personal proof that life does NOT end when the body dies?

The truth is, in my own experience, while religious beliefs CAN be an amazingly empowering and powerfully positive thing, they are not the best set of evidence that life continues on after the physical body dies.  And yes….I do know that many people look to scripture for their spiritual truth, and that is 100% cool and kosher with me, BUT……the good news is, you can also find lots of other supplemental spiritual evidence that supports the notion that we are far MORE than physical bodies alone.

Do I Have a Spirit Guide?

If I do… how will I know? What is the difference between a guardian angel, and a guide? Are they the same thing… or are BOTH ideas simply a bunch of wishful thinking and new age nuttiness?

Any of these questions sound familiar? If you are anything like the tens of thousands of people who have enjoyed our articles on angels, guides, spiritually transformative experiences, and the wild and wonderful “invisible” world that awaits us all, they probably DO, right? After all… no matter WHAT you believe about life, death and everything that may happen before or after those two important occasions, life IS more magical, when you consider that the journey never really begins or ends.

So are you curious but NOT yet convinced?

Let’s take a quick and easy look at what we DO know about what people report about their own experiences……with guides, angels, spirits and personal protectors from above.

1 – Millions of smart and totally SANE people, each and every year, have a spiritually “transformative” experience where they feel we’ve been in direct contact with a loved one who has crossed over, or an angelic being that is NOT of this world.

2 – More than half of all married couples will claim to have a direct, convincing and life changing experience with their spouse, after their passing.

3 – More than 75% of parents who lose a child will report having a dream visitation, or a waking experience where they SEE, hear and feel their child’s presence.

4 – There are COUNTLESS cases of famous people from politicians, to world explorers, to extreme athletes, to ordinary people who have reported being in direct communication with a spirit guide or angelic being who has helped them accomplish a seemingly insurmountable goal. This phenomena is SO common that it’s been called “the 3rd man syndrome” where a “helper” appears out of nowhere to help guide, steer or cheer the person on to accomplishing some great task.

5 – Just about 75% of all near death experiencers who are brought BACK from the brink of death report an angelic experience, where a guide or loved one greets them, tells them it’s NOT yet their time, and that they have work left to do.

6 – Many people experience angels and guides DIRECTLY and intentionally through simple meditative exercises and visualization techniques. I’ve personally had hundreds of evidential, inspirational and amazing encounters with all sorts of spiritual energies through these practices, and have taught countless others how to do the same.

7 – Lastly, the MOMENT you get personal proof, and experience the beauty, bliss, love and light of an angelic being or spirit guide for yourself… it changes you forever. There is simply no amount of reading, or thinking or believing that matches ONE experience of KNOWING.
