Afterlife Knowledge Retrieval Archive

This page contains accounts of retrievals originally posted on the Website Forum. They are archived here as reference material for those interested in learning more about what retrievals are, how they are done, and some of the implications of doing them.

Information gathered via contact and communication with the deceased during some of these retrievals have been verified as real.

It's my hope that as you read some of these accounts you'll be inspired to learn the art of retrieval. In my view there is no better way for any of us to prove to ourselves that the Afterlife exists then through our own, direct experience.

As posted originally on the Conversation Board some of these accounts were responded to by other Conversation Board visitors. When these responses appear to be relevant to the original post they are included in this archive. These accounts are listed generally in the order in which they were posted with the newest ones at the top of the list.
