After Death Communication Research
The ADC Project was created in May, 1988 to conduct the first in-depth research of After-Death Communications. The founders, Bill Guggenheim and Judy Guggenheim, in a 7 year study estimate that conservatively at least 50 million Americans (20% of the population) have had one or more ADC's.
In their study they interviewed 2,000 people who live in all 50 American states and the 10 Canadian provinces. They collected more than 3,300 firsthand accounts from people who believe they have been contacted by a loved one who had died.
Bill and Judy Guggenheim reported their research results in their book Hello From Heaven! It is the first book ever written that documents this exciting new field of research. The researchers describe and provide detailed accounts of twelve common types of ADC. Their book is published by Bantam Books and contains 353 poignant and deeply comforting ADC accounts.
Not all people are contacted by their deceased loved ones. The researchers don't know for certain why some are and some aren't, but it seems that fear, anger, and prolonged heavy grief inhibit the possibility of having an After Death Communication. It appears meditation may open the door for ADC.
The purpose of After Death Communications from those who have died is to offer comfort, reassurance, and hope to some loved one left behind. The reported messages are very similar and basically want the loved one to know their spirit is still existing very well, is free of pain and suffering, and filled with love. Often they say that the loved one will be reunited with them when it's time to leave the physical life on earth, and they will be waiting for the loved one.
The millions of reported After Death Communications have provided compelling beautiful messages on what happens after physical death, and it is very positive: Life and love are eternal! For most people, an After Death Communication is highly valued as a sacred and cherished personal gift of love.
