Investigation of the Phenomenology and Impact of Spontaneous and Direct After-Death Communications

Acording to the Evelyn Elsaesser website:

Thanks to a generous grant from a prestigious foundation, an ambitious multilingual project entitled Investigation of the phenomenology and impact of perceived spontaneous and direct After-Death Communications (ADCs) was conducted from February 2018 to January 2020.

“The most dramatic one was the evening a friend fell and was in the hospital when he appeared in front of my desk where I was working. I looked up and saw Charles.

Bereaved Individuals have for centuries reported contacts with the spirit of a deceased loved one. But what do these experiences look like and does contact help us in our grieving?

Researchers are now studying the impact of spontaneous and direct After-Death Communications (ADCs). These spontaneous and direct after-death communication occurs when bereaved persons unexpectedly perceive a deceased person through the senses of sight, hearing, smell or touch (not through a Medium).

These experiences can occur during sleep, when falling asleep or waking up. Often these communications convey a message that is reassuring and can help the bereaved resolve grief.

Researchers Elsaesser, Roe & Cooper (2020) using questionnaires, collected the largest multilingual, international, collection of over 1,000 responses. The results will amaze you!
