It can happen in an instant... like a lightning strike… ZAP! One second ago you didn’t know and then suddenly you read it or heard it or saw it framed in a whole new way and all of a sudden everything made complete sense. Your lightbulb moment! That’s what happened to many spiritual seekers after they emailed Diane Goble.
Goble developed her first website BeyondtheVeil.net in 1996 to share her near-death experience and provide information and resources to people who had NDEs or might be interested in the subject. Over the next decade, her full-time (non-paying) job became responding to all the emails that came to her inbox from thousands of people, ages 17 to 94, from 140 countries all over the world. If someone told you that while her body was at the mercy of a fast moving, cold water river, she experienced an amazing adventure into another reality where she was filled with unconditional love and acceptance, accompanied by a loving Being of Light, where she experienced an expansion of consciousness tapping into universal knowledge, then chose to return to her body back in the river to continue her soul’s journey in its physical form… what would your first question be? Submitted questions and Goble’s responses were posted on her website as "Seekers Open Forum" and others were invited to comment. She never claims to have all the answers nor agues that she is right or someone else is wrong but points out a difference in perspective to be considered. This is also a process for her as she attempts to put the ineffable into words that make sense to others. “It’s like translating hieroglyphics,” she says, “seeing the Big Picture and making it tangible." Goble realized she was getting a lot of the same kinds of questions asked in different ways from people with diverse backgrounds, customs and belief systems. When she decided to select some of the correspondences to put into “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to Cosmic Consciousness,” she was able to group them into similar questions about near-death experiences, fear of death, death & dying, grief, the afterlife, suicide, reincarnation, paranormal experiences, and spiritual but not religious. For those with unanswered questions in any of these topics, a glance through some of the exchanges just might give you that new perspective that awakens your soul and gives you that light bulb moment that changes your life from mundane to meaningful, and awakens you to your own hero’s journey. Goble’s NDE did not involve any religion or religious figures, but gave her a broader, more inclusive understanding of who we are and why we are here. Her greatest message is that WE DON’T DIE! “We just pop out of our physical form and return home,” Goble says, “and we’re off to our next adventure in life.” With Master's Degrees in Psychology and Hypnotherapy, she was a psycho-spiritual counselor and ordained minister for over 25 years. It is through her meditations and writings, her volunteer work with hospice, and her training of transition guides for the dying that she provides comfort to those approaching the end of this part of our lives. You will find food for thought, grist for the mill, thoughts to ponder, as you ask yourself who am I and why am I here? Many of the questions we all have about life and death are addressed… what happens when we die… where do we go... is there a heaven or a hell… are there rewards and punishments… what is the meaning of life... what if I commit suicide… will my father ever forgive me… did I do the right thing… will I see my child again? It’s time to WAKE UP! This could be the book that changes your life. "The Hitchhiker's Guide to Cosmic Consciousness" by Diane Goble available exclusively on Kindle.
