Martha St. Claire Appears in Afterlife-What Happens When We Die

Paul Perry, the talented NY Times best-selling author and film maker, created this new documentary. I am in it, along with some fascinating and well known names in the near-death experience field, etc. You can purchase it at or order it through Amazon:

“The documentary begins with Perry interviewing people on the streets of Portland, Santa Monica, and New Orleans. From there he has in-depth interviews with leading authorities, Dr. Raymond Moody and Dr. Jeffrey Long. Finally, the film finishes with exceptional recounts by individuals who have had vivid Near Death Experiences. This is truly a remarkable work that provides the viewer with some different perspectives. The film may be the most important work on the subject produced to date. It must be seen.”

“In the Realm of God”- My Near-Death Experience & More- (Via YouTube)

My first YouTube video was filmed at the The Near-Death Experiencers’ Retreat , near St. Louis, MO, in 2008. I share about my last NDE, in brief, and more… Enjoy!

Ancient Prophecies III- New Visions of the Future (NBC)
Greystone Communications. Televised February 28, 1996. This program emphasizing prophecy and the coming “new age”, including near-death experience prophecy, was intended to be more uplifting than earlier programs. Martha’s NDE, (AKA Cassandra Musgrave) and other prophetic NDEs were featured. (The program is available to rent on video tape through various metaphysical bookstores and on Netflix). Reruns on TLC, The Learning Channel.

I hope that my YouTube video blesses your life, bringing insight, comfort, and healing.  Your donations are very much appreciated!

“The Living Light Within- Gifts of the Near-Death Experience for Daily Life” 

villagescenicthumblg.jpgWednesday, May 14th, 2008, 7:00 PM- 9:00 PM

(Donations appreciated and welcomed).

Fillmore Chapel, Unity Village (Near Lee’s Summit and Kansas City).

1901 NW Blue Parkway

Unity Village, MO 64065

Beyond curiosity, heavenly longing, fear, or superstition, physical death remains our destined reality. At one time or another, we all face the loss of loved ones and our own dying process. Stories of blissful near-death experiences flourish in the media, yet “Heaven” may seem a far-away notion, filled with wonder, uncertainty, and even dread. Martha’s personal near-death experience provides a wonderful glimpse of our celestial home and reminds us that beyond any fear or superstition, that death remains a glorious, natural transformation and that we are indeed here to co-create “Heaven on Earth.”

Join us for an inspiring, lively event, as Martha shares her fascinating, multiple experiences “in the light” and more, and responds to your questions and comments. Come expecting a lovely evening of divine love and inner healing, designed to bring refreshment to your soul.
