The Last Frontier: Exploring the Afterlife and Transforming Our Fear of Death

Knowledge of the afterlife can trigger dazzling transformations in body, mind, and spirit. It unleashes our authentic selves, radically resets our values, and deepens our sense of life purpose. From it we discover that the real nature of the universe is the very essence of benevolence. In this comprehensive work, Julia Assante probes what happens when we die, approaching with scholarly precision historical and religious accounts, near-death experiences, and after-death communication. She then presents convincing evidence of discarnate existence and communication with the dead and offers practical ways to make contact with departed loved ones to heal and overcome guilt, fear, and grief.

    This review is from: The Last Frontier: Exploring the Afterlife and Transforming Our Fear of Death (Paperback)

    I worked as a registered nurse in intensive care units, emergency departments, oncology units and seven years in AIDS units in the earlier days when death was the quick outcome. So I have a very grounded view of death as it occurs in hospitals, and I accepted near-death experiences as real after hearing enough accounts, and especially in seeing the transformative effects when people accept them as real instead of a hallucination or bizarre dream.

    Julia’s book takes the understanding of death to a new level…I could say “deeper” level, but I really mean to a “More Accessible” level. And I love it. I love it because our society is afraid to engage discussions of death, and we tuck it away and sanitize it because we are afraid of it. One result is that our population buys into a false promise that is offered by high tech medical care near the end-of-life. Instead of living the last phase of this life completing emotional and spiritual business, practical business, and enjoying the company and love of friends, too many people spend several nightmarish weeks or a few months in torturous circumstances in an intensive care unit, and then die. And I can tell you, it can get to be downright barbaric, and all because we chase an empty promise of continued life because we are terrified of death. High tech medicine has its place, but it is extremely overused, to the detriment of families and patients, and with enormous financial costs to our society.

    Julia is both a mystic and a scholar, and she skillfully weaves a compelling understanding that the dead are not gone, and that we can communicate with them. I have used Julia’s method to communicate with my parents and two deceased friends. Was it all within my psyche, or was I actually communicating with them? One can ask that question, but it felt real to me, and it helped me lay some unresolved emotional issues to rest that had deeply bothered me.

    This book will help you awaken into a more comfortable relationship with death as a natural process that happens to all of us, and open up ways of communicating with your deceased loved ones that feels normal and natural.

    I read Dr. Moody’s ground breaking book “Life after Life” a few decades ago and recall his closing comment that it would be the one and only time he would discuss the afterlife. Time and the demand to know more has kept him as a pioneer as a result of our deepening desire to “know” what we become after this thing called “life”. More recently a neurosurgeon has stepped out of the world of provable science to share his experience on the “other side”.

    Dr. Assante’s book has taken our understanding in many more directions. Historically rich, profoundly readable and deeply engaging. At each turn she is able to help the reader find comfort in her words and information. I am prepared now to take the leap in exploring my ability to step beyond the veil.

    Thank you Julia for the honest portrayal of your own experiences and for letting all of us know that we too are, and have always been, capable of learning the path to communicate with those who have passed before us.

    This is a MUST READ!

    Solving the Puzzle, October 24, 2012

    This review is from: The Last Frontier: Exploring the Afterlife and Transforming Our Fear of Death (Paperback)

    As I see it, trying to understand the nature of reality is like working on a very abstract jigsaw puzzle of a thousand or more pieces. Joining the edges together is a task in itself. Inside those margins, the verisimilitude is mind boggling. Most people might as well be doing it blindfolded. But this book is a puzzle solver, assisting the open-minded seeker of truth to more easily identify the interlocking pieces. As they mysteriously join together, the reader begins to see a picture taking shape, even if it is a bit elusive at times. After all, how does one visualize a reality in which there is no time, at least as we know it? How do we visualize the infinite, the eternal, or Oneness? Then again, how does one visualize the Internet?

    Basically, as the subtitle states, the book is about “exploring the afterlife and transforming our fear of death.” In addition to being an academic, having taught at Columbia, Bryn Mawr, and the University of Münster in Germany, the author is a professional intuitive, medium, and past-life therapist. Most books on the subject of death and the afterlife are by either researchers or by experiencers of one kind or another, but Assante offers an interesting blend of both science and spirituality, often relating personal experiences with the dying and the dead. For example, she tells of being at the deathbed of her father and feeling a tugging at her solar plexus, from which a cord composed of strands of energy was issuing. “The tugging turned into an abrupt and clear snap, as if some unseen force had pulled it out,” she relates, adding that it “then followed my father upward, like streams of billowing smoke” before disappearing along with him into thin air. She also tells of being present at the death of a great aunt, an Italian immigrant, who suddenly started speaking English at the age of 93, a language no one was aware she knew, just before her death.

    “There is so much fear around illness and death that it is literally killing us,” Assante asserts, going on to say that it has made our society schizophrenic. “On the one hand, the topic of death is scrupulously avoided; on the other hand, it is a cultural obsession.” She explores the whole area from inside out and outside in, discussing every conceivable subject related to dying, death, and the afterlife, including after-death communication, angels, deathbed visions, dreams, karma, life reviews, spirits, near-death experiences, reincarnation, suicide, telepathy, thought forms, and xenoglossy.

    She addresses the incongruities and variances in afterlife reports by near-death experiencers, pointing out that skeptics use these differences to argue that they can’t be true. “The expectation of uniformity in the afterlife is naïve, a by-product of the human need for reassurance,’ she offers, going on to say that fixed canonical versions of the afterworld are also necessary for religious leaders.

    In Chapter 16, she gives suggestions on how to make contact with the departed, including setting up dream encounters and automatic writing, even giving tips for when nothing seems to work.

    There are many who say that we should live for today and not concern ourselves with death and the afterlife. In concluding the book Assante explains why knowledge of all this is important. “People become more reflective, more philosophical, more spiritual…They develop a hunger for knowledge…there is a stronger tendency toward service and a boosted sense of personal life purpose…”

    Most people seem to be struggling to piece together the edges of the complex puzzle called life and the nature of reality. This book can significantly expedite the solving of that puzzle. .
