Before answering a ringing telephone, do you already know ho is calling? What about the “sudden” urge to check on your child in another room—only to find he is about to stick a bobby pin into an electrical socket? Welcome to the world of spiritually transformative experiences, or STEs.

A Glimpse of Heaven, by Carla Wills-Brandon, Ph.D. explores premonitions of disaster, death-related visions, prophetic and visionary dreams, pets with a “sixth sense,” and communications from those who have died. These STE’s, although almost impossible to prove in a science laboratory, happen all over the world every day.  These experiences suggest not just an afterlife, but an extra life - a realm that lies beyond our own three dimensions, yet that is capable of interfacing with our ordinary lives.

Wills-Brandon has had her fair share of STE’s and feels that having them validated by others adds weight to their testimony. Here is one of her personal examples.

My two sons loved their grandfather. Several weeks before [his] passing, my youngest son made an announcement. While traveling to the grocery store, he informed me that there was a “red-haired kid” sitting with him in the backset of the car.

“Honey, what’s your friend’s name?” I asked. While pulling at the legs of his [toy] dinosaur, Josh looked at the seat beside him and answered, “Who, him? That kid? His name is Damus.” “Sweetie, how long has Damus been around?” I asked. “Oh, Damus just got here a few days ago,” answered my son. He came here for Da! [their name for their grandfather]”

Wills-Brandon then asked her friend, Rabbi Jimmy, if he had ever heard the term “Damus.”

He looked up and said, “Sure, Damus or Damas translates to ‘messenger of death,’ a positive being who assists the dying. Where did you hear this term? It isn’t that common.”

Shortly afterwards, Da passed away… and Wills-Brandon’s son received no more visits from Damus.

A Glimpse of Heaven is filled with incredible experiences and life-changing anecdotes from people around the world. STE’s provide evidence that we are all connected by the strings of a fantastic and vast universe that works in ways we are only beginning to understand.

Ukraine War: A Story of Survival, Sacrifice, and Service – If charitable service to those in need is the ultimate in spirituality here in the physical life, this book most certainly deals with spiritual matters. The author, Amber Poole, an American woman and her husband, Paul, from Scotland but with Polish roots, operated an educational center in Poland when the Russians attacked Ukraine in 2022. As many Ukrainians fled to Poland, they turned their center into a home for as many as 40 refugees. The author kept a very interesting “war diary” over the first 18 months of the war, discussing everything from the cultural adjustments required by both the Polish and the Ukrainians to her own reactions and adjustments, as well as philosophical concerns and conflicts that often surfaced. In spite of the adversity and distress, she embraced the adversity. Read here
