Rita's World Vol.II - Much Wisdom about the Afterlife

Rita's World Vol. II: A View from the Non-Physical by Frank DeMarco

I want to share this review I wrote, about a book that shares much wisdom about the afterlife.

Can we communicate with the dead? Frank DeMarco, author of Rita's World, Vol I and II, doesn't only answer this question with a big YES, he has also devoted a large part of his life to explore profound questions in conversations with beings on the other side.

In Rita's World, Vol II: A View from the Non-Physical, author Frank DeMarco continues his conversation with his friend Rita Warren, who has passed over to the other side. From there she explains concepts such as free will, energetic healing, the unconscious and how to change the world.

What I really like about the Rita books are that the answers aren't given. There is no classic ”near-death-scenes,” described, or general truisms about the afterlife. Rather, many answers Rita provides about the ”other side,” as well as about the life in the material world, are surprising and mind-stretching. She stresses the importance of understanding being a process, a step-by-step experience, that cannot be forced. She says: ”Enlightenment is merely a matter of experiencing and comprehending ongoing connection … This is not a matter of concepts, for a person may have a transformative experience and be unable to put it into logic or concept – unable or not needing to. Or, a person may have the concept as an abstract possibility and fail to make it real.”

Open-minded, sometimes mind-blowing and highly entertaining, Rita's and Frank's conversations shines light on questions any seeker ponders, and do this in a way that feels engaging and respectful. There is much to learn from the other side, and with mutual effort Rita and Frank share generously.

I've read only two of Frank Demarco's books, "Muddy trails" and "The Sphere and the Hologram".

In my opinion, Demarco's channeling is the best I'm aware of, better than Jane Roberts' Seth books. Demarco's books are much less verbose, and benefit of detailed tables of contents, giving pretty much a feeling of reference book.

Demarco's work is less known because he didn't / doesn't monetize it through workshops, presentations, videos, etc.. He publishes his channeling work in his 600+ page blog, and his few books.

Demarco's intention is not only to share what he received in altered states, but to also entice everybody to find out for themselves.

I recommend both reading Demarco's work, and finding out for yourself.

I'm posting the table of contents of "The Sphere and the Hologram" just to show you the depth and variety of topics the authors present.

Book description

The Sphere and the Hologram recounts an extraordinary three-way partnership, that produced extraordinary results. The physical end of the collaboration involved two people: Rita Warren, a Ph.D. professor of psychology who, after her retirement, spent four years directing The Monroe Institute's laboratory, helping volunteers to achieve and explore altered mental states under controlled conditions, and Frank DeMarco, an author, former journalist and co-founder of the Hampton Roads Publishing Co., Inc., who had learned to bring forth messages from the other side.

The nonphysical end involved what DeMarco calls "the guys upstairs," a group whose composition changes from time to time, depending upon subject matter and other variables. Together, in the summer of 2001, they began a series of weekly sessions in which DeMarco entered an altered state and Warren asked questions that had interested her for years, questions for which the volunteers she had quizzed had been unable to provide satisfactory answers. What is the nature and purpose of life? Is there a God? Is there an afterlife, and if so, what is it like? What is the truth behind crop circles, UFOs, etc? In short, how does the world function?

As it turned out, the guys upstairs were more than willing to share what they know. Using a combination of explanation, analogy, pointed questions, jokes, and thought experiments, they set out to answer anything that could be asked--and their fascinating series of conversations may help you change your life.

I've started Muddy Tracks. It's an account of his experiences at the Monroe Institute. So it will be a great prelude to The Sphere and the Hologram, which I just ordered today. Thanks

Which are you recommending Rita's World, Vol I and II or The Sphere and the Hologram? I got the Sphere and the Hologram.

Muddy Tracks is very good. It's about initial awakening and how he was drawn to the Monroe Institute. I'm enjoying it.

The Sphere and the Hologram.

What sets apart “The Sphere and the Hologram” is that the conversation with “the guys upstairs” was conducted by Rita, an 80 year old psychologist with credentials, heavily into New Age spirituality, which made her an ideal incredulous questioner, who often couldn’t understand explanations, drew wrong conclusions, was reluctant that “the guys upstairs” didn’t confirm her beliefs. None of the major channels, like Roberts and Hicks, did benefit of such a framework.

Demarco’s channeled material (from “The Sphere and the Hologram”) is much less prolix, and more direct than any other I’ve seen, Seth’s included.


You can also check his blog, where you can find the raw material from his other books, and from other channeling: http://ofmyownknowledge.com/blog/
