Yensen was another near-death experiencer
who received knowledge of reincarnation.
In August of 1932, Yensen, a university
graduate, geologist, and staunch -materialist
-turned -syndicated -cartoonist, decided
to take some time off to research his weekly
cartoon strip, "ADVENTUROUS WILLIE
WISPO." Since his main character was
a hobo, Yensen became a hobo for a time,
blending in with the over sixteen million
unemployed at that time in our nation's
Great Depression. He bummed rides from Chicago
through Minnesota, until a young man in
a convertible coupe picked him up on the
way to Winnipeg. Going too fast for the
road conditions, the car hit a three-foot-high
ridge of oiled gravel and flipped into a
series of violent somersaults. Both men
were catapulted through the cloth top before
the car smashed into a ditch. The driver
escaped unharmed, but Yensen was injured,
losing consciousness just as two female
spectators rushed to his aid. After seeing
the afterlife during this near-death experience,
he later learned that telling others about
his NDE often brought criticism, especially
from the church. But there were those who
would listen and as time wore on, more and
more people would ask him about it. Finally
in 1955, Arthur Yensen published a report
of his near-death experience after much
public interest. His booklet entitled "I
Saw Heaven" (now out-of-print, but

1. Arthur Yensen's Near-Death Experience
I felt as if I were coming loose from my
body! While I believed that my body
was me, I knew instinctively that if I separated
from it, I'd be dead! My soul and
body started separating again and continued
to separate until I felt a short, sharp
pain in my heart, which felt as if something
had been torn loose. Then slowly and
softly I rose out through the top of my
Gradually the Earth scene faded away, and
up through it loomed a bright, new, beautiful
world - beautiful beyond imagination!
For half a minute I could see both worlds
at once. The Earth fading away, and
the other world looming up brighter, and
brighter, and still brighter! Finally
when the Earth was all gone, I stood in
a glory that could only be heaven.
the background were two beautiful mountains
similar to Fujiyama of Japan. The tops were
snow-capped, and the slopes were adorned
with foliage of indescribable beauty. Since
there was no pollution, haze, or other obstructions
to mar one's vision, all the details were
sharp and clear. The mountains appeared
to be about fifteen miles away, yet I could
see individual flowers growing on their
slopes. I estimated my vision to be
about 100 times better than on Earth.
While I stood there marveling, I saw twenty
people beyond the first trees, playing a
singing-dancing game something like "skip-to-my-lou." They
were having a hilarious time holding hands
and dancing in a circle - fast and lively.
Their singing, their laughter, and even
their shouting was melodious.
As soon as they saw me, four of the players
left the game and joyfully skipped over
to greet me. As they approached, I estimated
their ages to be: one 30; two 20; and one
12. Their bodies seemed almost weightless,
and the grace and beauty of their easy movements
was fascinating to watch.
As the heaven-people gathered around, the
oldest, largest and strongest-looking man
announced pleasantly, "You are in the
land of the dead. We lived on Earth,
just like you, till we came here."
With unbounded enthusiasm I shouted, "This
marvelous!" they answered. Then
with delight they told me how I could swim
around in the lake as long as I pleased
and when I came out, I'd be dry! Another
one said, "You can run, jump, dance,
sing and play as much as you want to and
you'll never get tired!"
Then I noticed that the landscape was gradually
becoming familiar. It seemed as if I had
been here before. I remembered what was
on the other side of the mountains. Then
with a sudden burst of joy, I realized that
this was my real home! Back on Earth
I had been a visitor, a misfit, and a homesick
stranger. With a sigh of relief, I
said to myself, "Thank God I'm back
again. This time I'll stay!"
Then the oldest man, who looked like a Greek
god, continued to explain. "Everything
over here is pure. The elements don't mix
or break down as they do on Earth. Everything
is kept in place by an all pervading Master-Vibration,
which prevents aging. That's why things
don't get dirty, or wear out, and why everything
looks so bright and new. Then I understood
how heaven could be eternal.
Next I noticed that I was loving everything
and everybody and that it was making me
intensely happy. Apparently only the good
in me had survived. Without the bad,
which is discord, I was happy beyond anything
I had ever known.
My next question was, "How do you explain
this intense happiness?"
Your thoughts are vibrations which are controlled
by the Master-Vibration. It neutralizes
all negative thoughts and lets you think
only the good thoughts, such as love, freedom
what becomes of the old grouches?"
If they are too bad they go to a realm of
lower vibrations where their kind of thoughts
can live. If they came here, the Master-Vibration
would annihilate them. After death people
gravitate into homogenous groups according
to the rate of their soul's vibrations.
If the percent of discord in a person is
small, it can be eliminated by the Master-Vibration; then
the remaining good can live on here.
For example, if a person were 70% good
and 30% bad, the bad could be eliminated
by the Master-Vibration and the remaining
good welcomed into heaven. However, if the
percentage of bad were too high, this couldn't
be done, and the person would have to gravitate
to a lower level and live with people of
his own kind. In the hereafter each person
lives in the kind of a heaven or hell that
he prepared for himself while on Earth.
If you threw a small pebble into a threshing
machine, it would go into the box - not
because it is good or bad, but because of
its proper size and weight. It's the same
way here. No one sends you anywhere. You
are sorted by the high or low vibrations
of your soul. Everyone goes where he
fits in! High vibrations indicate
love and spiritual development, while low
vibrations indicate debasement and evil.
When I asked what a person should do while
on Earth to make it better for him when
he dies, he answered, "All you can
do is to develop along the lines of unselfish
love. People don't come here because of
their good deeds, or because they believe
in this or that, but because they fit in
and belong. Good deeds are the natural
result of being good, and bad deeds are
the natural result of being bad. Each carries
its own reward and punishment. It's
what you are that counts!"
While we talked, my mind, or whatever I
had to think with, became crystal clear. Instantly
and without effort I could remember everything
I had ever known. I seemed to understand
the Earth and all about it. The whole scheme
of life was plain as day. Everything
on Earth has its purpose. It all fits into
a pattern which will, in the end, work out
for justice and good. People worry because
of their incomplete viewpoints. They
don't realize that trouble is nature's way
of teaching lessons that won't be learned
otherwise. If we'd only learn from
other peoples' troubles, we could avoid
most of our own.
While we were still talking, and I was enjoying
the ecstasy of heaven, my friend gently
announced, "You can't stay here any
longer. You have to go back to Earth."
to Earth! Oh, no, not back to that
But already I was leaving this beautiful
land and slipping back into my body - still
enough in heaven to have no inhibitions,
and yet far enough back into my body to
have terrible thoughts. Like a kid having
a tantrum I kicked and screamed, "Let
me stay! Let me stay!" -
But all my protesting did no good.
As I moved farther back into my body, there
was a painful, prickly feeling all over,
similar to a foot waking up. Also a crowded
feeling as if the real me was having to
compress itself to get back into its hateful
The last thing the strong man said to me
was, "You have more important work
to do on Earth, and you must go back and
do it! There will come a time of great
confusion and the people will need your
stabilizing influence. When your work
on Earth is done, then you can come back
here and stay."

What follows are answers to questions people
always asks him about.]

2. Can you tell us a little more about heaven?
Heaven is really hard to describe in Earth
language because our words aren't adequate
to describe things beyond our imaginations.
However, the heaven I saw is characterized
by its vivid greenness, its crystalline
cleanliness, its newness, its all-pervading
music and its overall beauty - all of which
are maintained by the Master-Vibration.
It's a vigorous, lively place with an outflowing
happiness that's uncontainable. It's an "over-answer"
to everything we should have, and so far
as I know, it's a final home for the soul.
It's not a place of rest, as so many tired
people picture it, because no one there
gets tired. It's more like a new lease on
life. No one could possibly use all the
bubbling energy that wells up from his diaphragm.
It's a lively hilarious place that's unbelievably
sweet, serene and melodious. The people
there reminded me of uninhibited, carefree
children - before well-meaning adults work
In heaven where all people really love each
other, there are no inhibitions, or need
for them. Everyone does exactly as he pleases.
This works out well because only the best
in each person survives, and good is all
anyone wants to do. This allows a freedom
and happiness that people on Earth can't
On Earth, where everyone is more or less
evil, we need thousands of laws and inhibitions
to keep order. For some people these restrictions
are so severe that they become depressed,
which may cause them to commit suicide.
But in heaven, where there are no restrictions,
people want to live forever.
Return to Top
3. What can you tell us about hell?
Not much, but
I hear it's a cool place.
Heat is molecules
in motion, while cold is their lack of motion.
Likewise, love is a fast vibration of the
soul, while hate is a slower vibration.
Complete love would be God, while complete
hate would be death, leaving the soul extinct.
in heaven was just right, neither hot nor
cold. But that stranger who said he'd been
in hell three weeks described it as a dark,
dank, chilly, frightening place. A place
where everyone retains their physical desires
without a way to satisfy them. For example,
the glutton can't eat because he has no
physical body. The alcoholic can't drink
for the same reason, neither can the smoker
smoke, nor the drug addict get a fix. The
miser can't protect his money, and the sex-maniac,
who doesn't believe in love, finds it impossible
to satisfy his lust. Hell is real hell for
anyone who lives only to satisfy his selfish
bodies, feelings of hate and fear are intensified
as souls vainly try to hide from their enemies.
Their only hope is to reincarnate. Then
unfortunately when they do, they may forget
all about their torment in hell and again
lead lives of greed and tyranny. This miserable
cycle can continue "forever" unless they
find salvation in one of their lifetimes.
Such people really need a savior, since
they are not able to help themselves. I'm
sure Christ incarnated to help them because
he said, "I came not to call the righteous,
but sinners to repentance.

4. How does a person get ahead in the next
You don't. There is no place in heaven for
discontent or personal ambition. You may
not be able to change at all after you arrive
... The Bible also tells us that when the
Devil got too ambitious he was kicked out
If everyone completely understood the afterlife,
they'd quit trying to keep up with the Joneses
and start learning how to live unselfishly.
Here we can change ourselves quite easily
and should use this life to make ourselves
into the kind of people we want to be in
the hereafter. This world is a miserable
place for anyone who hasn't learned internal
harmony - characterized by unselfish love.
Mankind is like a chain. What one does affects
us all. We should try to strengthen our
weakest links. In heaven, as far as I could
tell, all people do is enjoy themselves.
They're like children who don't demand work
in order to be happy.
Return to Top
5. What is success and what is failure?
We came into this world to have trouble
and to learn from it. Unfortunately many
people don't realize this and complain about
their bad luck and spend their lives chasing
pleasure, fame and money. Then they die
without making any spiritual progress. And
so they waste life after life.
It should be obvious that all we'll take
with us is our character, our karma and
our abilities, and that we'll have to live
with people like ourselves.
Therefore, our highest success would be
to rise into the highest heaven through
unselfish love. And our most dismal failure
would be to hate ourselves out of existence
- if that is possible.
Return to Top
6. Why didn't you mention
God and salvation?
I didn't omit
them intentionally. It's only that I didn't
see God, Christ, or hear anything about
salvation. However, I do consider the Master-Vibration
as part of God because it controls the universe
and seems to regulate everything except
the evil minds of people on Earth.
God, I believe one would have to be almost
as great as God is. Or at least be like
Christ who was in harmony with God. On the
other hand, salvation is simple. All one
has to do is to love so unselfishly that
his soul-vibrations will rise high enough
to fit him into heaven.

7. What is sin?
Sin is anything that stops spiritual growth.
The three great sins are: Not learning from
experience, letting leadership turn into
tyranny, and letting selfishness turn into
Everyone should constantly check themselves
for developing greed, tyranny, fear, worry,
anger, hate, jealousy, and especially guilt.
By conquering these harmful traits we keep
in tune with our oversouls (guardian angels),
God and the universe. Sin is anything that
causes us to lose this contact. When the
subconscious mind feels guilty it is ashamed
to face its oversoul and builds up barriers
to shut it out. Without the oversoul to
guide it, such a person is like a child
lost in the dark. The only hope it has is
to get rid of its guilt and re-connect with
Return to Top
8. How are we saved?
By unselfish love.
When we love unselfishly, our vibrations
are so high that the only place we'll fit
into is heaven. There is no other place
we can go if we want to. This is divine
justice because it gives all the people
who ever lived, as well as all the higher
animals who know right from wrong, an equal
chance to eventually attain internal harmony
which will fit them into some kind of heaven
- regardless of their intelligence, education,
indoctrination, ignorance, wealth or poverty.

No, but if there
is one, he would have to be an insane angel
who was crazy enough to fight with God,

is a mythological character, invented by
humans and used for a scapegoat. Grown people

for their misdeeds instead of acting like
people and taking the blame themselves.

Both. Since they
told me I had a destiny, why wouldn't everyone

a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom
of God." John 3:3. Reincarnation certainly
explains a lot of things that would be hard
to account for otherwise. From my experience
I'm convinced we have all lived and died
many times. The reason we don't remember
our former lives is because our vast
soul memories are not transferred to our
baby brains at birth. All we know in this
life is what we learned in past lifetimes.
That would be the reason why some things
are so much easier for us to learn than
others. For example, Mozart didn't have
to learn music because he already knew it.
One of the good things about reincarnation
is that at the beginning of each lifetime
we are cleared of all past prejudices, learning
blocks and wrong teachings, and are ready
for a fresh start - just like a new term
at school - and, like school, when we have
learned enough of life's lessons, we graduate
and don't have to come back to this Earth
anymore, except as volunteers to teach stragglers.
Since our opportunities for spiritual growth
on this planet are probably limited time-wise,
we should realize that in dealing with children,
the learning value of any incarnation can
be spoiled by indoctrination before the
child is old enough to reason. In some cases
this is worse than murder because it may
waste a whole lifetime instead of just a
Some scholars say that in the Dark Ages
the Church had all references to reincarnation
deleted from the Bible, so as to better

Then traditional Jewish sacrifices were
such a bloody nuisance, the Christians proclaimed

cross to end all other sacrifices! And that's
how the doctrine of vicarious atonement
got started. It made good sense in those
days and saved the lives of thousands of
innocent sheep and doves.
But now, 2,000 years later, it's pure nonsense.
Suppose I were God, and to please me, you
sacrificed a son, or a daughter. I'd be
outraged! Or suppose you cut a lamb's throat

19. More about Arthur Yensen
Born on a Nebraska
sandhill during the blizzard of 1898, Yensen
recalled being force-fed religion as a youngster.
Not only did he turn against it, but he
started challenging his parents at every
turn - including questioning the way they
ate. He observed that their farm animals
did just fine on a diet of fresh greens
and whole grains, yet family members were
always suffering indigestion and constipation
from the white flour, sugar, and grease
they consumed. Behind his parents' back,
he cured himself by eating bran flakes.
He continued to defy the conventions of
his day, switching from atheism to mysticism
after his near-death experience at the age
of thirty-four, marrying afterwards, and
built his own home in Parma, Idaho, from
blocks of tuffa (pumice) he and his sons
quarried. He later became an educator, public
speaker, was active in politics, specialized
in historical sculpture (his work adorns
Parma's city park), was a movie extra in
several Hollywood films, an authority on
organic gardening and nutrition, and was
singled out as one of Idaho's "Most
Although a public
figure, Yensen was frequently at odds with
the school boards where he taught: opposing
any procedure that capped a child's creative
drive; speaking out against the incarceration
of American citizens of Japanese ancestry
during World War II; and ignoring school
rules by sharing his near-death experience
in class as proof to his students that morality
matters and life really has a purpose. Ironically,
Yensen was still questioning whether or
not he had fulfilled his life's work when
he returned "home" in 1992, the
quiet benefactor of thousands.

Someone Else's Yesterday: The Confederate
General and Connecticut Yankee:
A Past Life Revealed
by Jeffrey J. Keene
This book is an amazing journey
through the eyes of two people:
one a Georgian, the other a Connecticut
Yankee. Similarities between the
two go far beyond coincidence. They
think alike, look alike, and even
share facial scars. Their lives
are so intertwined that they appear
to be one. Half of this equation,
Jeffrey J. Keene, is a present-day
Assistant Fire Chief in affluent
Westport, Connecticut. The other
half, John B. Gordon, Confederate
General, Army of Northern Virginia,
died January 9, 1904. Gathering
information from official records,
wartime reports and even love letters,
Jeff Keene uncovered many parallels
between his own life and that of
General Gordon. Even the trip to
the emergency room on his thirtieth
birthday with facial pain had mimicked
the wound General Gordon received
at the battle of Antietam when he
was thirty years of age. Jeff Keene
shares his insights into the workings
of reincarnation along with his
personal encounter with the nightmare
of September 11th.

who has died, not in a future spiritual
realm, but here and now, in this
lifetime? It is possible, says Carol
Bowman, author of Children’s Past
Lives and a pioneer in reincarnation
studies. Based on in-depth research
and direct observation of very young
children, she shows in this groundbreaking
book how common it is for beloved
relatives to reincarnate into the
same family. Typical families share
how their children -- some as young
as two and still in diapers -- speak
spontaneously of intimate details
from the lives of a family member
they never knew. These true stories
shed new light on age-old questions
of family relationships: Do we choose
our parents? What relationships
survive death? What happens to the
soul after a miscarriage or abortion?
Bowman offers hope for anyone who
has lost a beloved relative and
longs to be reunited again.
Children's Past Lives: How Past
Life Memories Affect Your Child
by Carol Bowman
Has your child lived before? In
this fascinating, controversial,
and groundbreaking book, Carol Bowman
reveals overwhelming evidence of
past life memories in children.
Not only are such experiences real,
they are far more common than most
people realize. Bowman's extraordinary
investigation was sparked when her
young son, Chase, described his
own past-life death on a Civil War
battlefield - account so accurate
it was authenticated by an expert
historian. Even more astonishing,
Chase's chronic eczema and phobia
of loud noises completely disappeared
after he had the memory. Inspired
by Chase's dramatic healing, Bowman
compiled dozens of cases and wrote
this comprehensive study to explain
how very young children remember
their past lives, spontaneously
and naturally. In Children's Past
Lives, she tells how to distinguish
between a true past life memory
and a fantasy, offers practical
advice to parents on how to respond
to a past life memory, and shows
how to foster the spiritual and
healing benefits of these experiences.
Many Mansions: The Edgar Cayce Story
by Gina Cerminara and Hugh Lynn
Thousands of microfilms filed at
the Association for Research and
Enlightenment at Virginia Beach
testify to Cayce's ability to diagnose,
prescribe for, and cure the ills
of people whose names and locations
he was given, but whom he had never
seen. Known as "The Miracle Man
of Virginia Beach," his successes
astonished medical authorities -
and the world. Many Mansions is
Dr. Gina Cerminara's account of
these healings - and an affirmation
of the age-old belief in reincarnation.
She tells how Cayce saw past the
barriers of space and time, how
he penetrated the "previous" lives
of his subjects, and performed the
fantastic cures and prophesies that
made him the most remarkable clairvoyant
in modern history.
Same Soul, Many Bodies: Discover
the Healing Power of Future Lives
through Progression Therapy
by Brian L. Weiss
Dr. Weiss pioneered regression therapy
-- guiding people through their
past lives. Here, he goes beyond
that to demonstrate the therapeutic
benefits of progression therapy
- guiding people through the future
in a scientific, responsible, healing
way. Through dozens of case histories
detailing both past-life and future-life
experiences, Dr. Weiss shows how
the choices that we make now will
determine our future quality of
life. From Samantha, who overcame
academic failure once she learned
of her future as a great physician,
to Evelyn, whose fears and prejudices
ended after she envisioned prior
and forthcoming lives as a hate
victim, Dr. Weiss gives concrete
examples of lives transformed by
regression and progression therapy.
A groundbreaking work, Same Soul,
Many Bodies is sure to deeply affect
peoples' lives as they strive toward

Edgar Cayce on Soul Mates: Unlocking
the Dynamics of Soul Attraction
by Kevin J. Todeschi
Is there really such a thing as
soul mates? According to Edgar Cayce,
yes. But his definition of "soul
mates," "twin souls," and "perfect
partners" may differ from what you're
expecting. For decades, Cayce provided
thousands of individuals with insights
into the nature of their personal
relationships. What is unique about
Todeschi's book is that it explores
the development of relationships
over time, played out within the
framework of reincarnation. In addition
to discussing soul mate relationships,
their connection to the cyclic pattern
of reincarnation, and the nature
of loneliness, this books looks
at the fundamentals of soul attraction
and provides contemporary examples
of the same principles discussed

Does the Soul Survive: A Jewish
Journey to Belief in Afterlife,
Past Lives & Living With a Purpose
by Rabbi Elie Kaplan Spitz
Near-death experiences? Past-life
regression? Reincarnation? Are these
sorts of things Jewish? With a blend
of candor, personal questioning,
and sharp-eyed scholarship, Rabbi
Elie Kaplan Spitz relates his own
observations and the firsthand accounts
shared with him by others, experiences
that helped propel his journey from
skeptic to believer that there is
life after life. From near-death
experiences to reincarnation, past-life
memory to the work of mediums, Rabbi
Spitz explores what we are really
able to know about the afterlife,
and draws on Jewish texts to share
that belief in these concepts so
often approached with reluctance
is in fact true to Jewish tradition.
The increasing interest and faith
in survival of the soul may grow
into a cultural wave that is as
potentially transformative for society
as the civil rights movement and
feminism. A renewed faith in the
soul s journeys will call for a
reassessment of our priorities,
and will enable traditional religions
to renew and transform their adherents.
