Recognizing the Presence of Deceased Loved Ones at Family & Friend Gatherings

BOB OLSON & NATALIE SUDMAN: “Hey Afterlife TV is back! Yay! And I’m beginning with something different. This episode is not an interview but rather an honest-to-goodness conversation between two afterlife authors & friends. And I chose to do it this way because this episode comes out during the holiday season, a time of the year when we’re feeling the void of our loved ones in spirit. So I invited Natalie Sudman to join me in this discussion about the why & how we can recognize that our deceased loved ones are with us at ANY family or friend gathering. We talk about inviting them to the party, recognizing the signs they send us, teaching them what signs we will notice, and even how our remembering them affects them in spirit. I think you’ll enjoy this holiday special that is delivered with joy, a little humor, some channeling, and a lot of love.”” ~ Bob Olson, Afterlife TV

NATALIE’S SUDMAN’S BOOK – Application Of Impossible Things: A Near Death Experience In Iraq (Amazon affiliate) CLICK HERE TO PURCHASE. This is an amazing true story of a female civilian employee of the Army Corps of Engineers in Basrah and Nasiriyah, Iraq. She was riding in a truck when a roadside bomb destroyed the vehicle. Her body was so severely damaged that there was no possible way she could live. She vividly recounts her Near Death Experience when she went out of the body to the spirit world. There it was decided that her work on Earth was not done and with the help of spirit guides, they repaired the body so she could reenter it. She retained the conscious memory of what happened and during the time in the hospital, more details returned. This is the amazing story of a survival in wartime conditions. This has happened to many others in Iraq, but how many remember the spirit side of the experience?

NATALIE SUDMAN’S BIOGRAPHY: Natalie worked as an archeologist in the Great Basin states for sixteen years before accepting a position managing construction contracts in Iraq. After being injured by a roadside bomb (improvised explosive device–IED), Natalie has since retired from government service. She is now enjoying art, writing, and continuing explorations into the non-physical.

Natalie has been a subject of studies performed by the University of Virginia’s Division of Perceptual Studies, and welcomes invitations to act as a lab rat for any scientific investigation. Describing herself as an open-minded skeptic, Natalie finds that the rigorous methodology of science appeals to her critical mind, while her artistic nature enjoys the expansive freedom of leaving behind the critical mind in frequent forays into the non-physical. She maintains that an irreverent sense of humor and a willingness to look foolish are the cornerstones of constructive exploration.

Raised in Minnesota, Natlie Sudman has lived most of her adult life in eastern Oregon, Montana and South Dakota. She recently moved to southern Arizona. Her artwork is available through Davis & Cline Galleries in Ashland, Oregon.

Afterlife TV’s 1st Interview with Natalie Sudman: THE BLINK ENVIRONMENT

In case you missed it, this is Natalie Sudman’s first interview where Natalie tells the story of her encounter with a roadside bomb (IED) and what happened when she left her body and had a near death experience. In the blink of an eye, Natalie found herself in another dimension, what she calls the BLINK ENVIRONMENT. Surrounded by thousands of other-wordly beings, she instantly began downloading minutely detailed information to them about events, thoughts, concepts, judgments, projections and connections regarding her physical life so far. Thus begins this fascinating story of spiritual insight and experience that will have you mesmerized by this Defense Of Freedom Medal recipient. This is a video you don’t want to miss.” ~ Bob Olson, Afterlife TV

Afterlife TV’s 2nd Interview with Natalie Sudman: THE REST ENVIRONMENT

In case you missed it, this is Natalie Sudman’s second interview where Natalie reveals what happened to her in the second stage of her NDE, which she calls the REST ENVIRONMENT. She talks about the relationship between spirit and soul, her experience having a Life Review, the matrix that connects all living things, coincidences as serendipity, choices we make and those we don’t make, the power of our beliefs over our intentions, and a profound final message about the gift of being human. If you were fascinated by this Defense Of Freedom Medal recipient in her first interview in Season One, you’ll want to watch or listen to this new video conversation that covers new, consciousness-expanding insights.” ~ Bob Olson, Afterlife TV . 

Afterlife TV’s 3rd Interview with Natalie Sudman: THE HEALING ENVIRONMENT

In case you missed it, this is Natalie Sudman’s third interview where Natalie reveals what happened to her in the HEALING ENVIRONMENT. She talks about the different forms (shapes/appearances) she took in all 3 environments, how her soul (whole self) chose the injuries she would have when re-entering her physical body–and why she chose those injuries, what the Healing Environment was like and what it teaches us about our soul’s detachment and sense of humor, and why our souls make choices for tragedies in the first place. We even talk about spirit guides, the environment in which they exist, and how they fulfill our requests when they get mixed messages from us. This interview is so jam-packed with fascinating information that you won’t want to miss it. I’d love to hear your thoughts after watching it.” ~ Bob Olson, Afterlife TV

  2. Melody says:

    Have not been able to see the video. It does not seem to be working

    • Bob Olson says:

      Hi Melody,

      Try restarting your computer. No one else is having trouble with the video. I hope that works for you.


  3. carol, England says:

    so glad you are doing more interviews you have been a great help to me as i lost my 20year old son in a car accident over a year ago, thankyou so much

  4. Teresa says:

    Hello Bob,

    You look good (and hilarious) as an animated figure. I love that little dance that you do at the end; that is so cool! Thank you (& Natalie) for doing this show just before the holidays; I appreciate it.
    Take care & happy holidays,


  5. Athena LaFlamme-Edwards says:

    thank you, Bob, for another informative interview. I love the way you interact with your guests, and your laughter makes me feel as if I am in the room with you. I am looking forward to all your future interviews . Bright Blessings this holiday, Athena

  6. Nooshin Natanzadeh says:

    Hi Bob,

    Welcome back! I’m so glad and excited that you’ve started new interviews. Thanks for starting with beautiful Natalie. I love her energy and her unique way of explaining things. Looking forward to watching more interviews. Thanks you


  7. Debra Thomas says:

    Without a doubt, a most candid,heartfelt & entertaining “otherview” of personal experiences, recollections & encounters that go beyond the traditionally accepted norm we call living. I am re-motivated to share my own personal incidences with open-minded believers such as you & your guests, who are willing to accept what most people choose not to.The probabilities of relaxing the resistant attitudes & fears of those hiding behind what they deny exists increases with each new shared experience!

  8. Louise says:

    Hi Bob.

    I was wondering if you could maybe do a video about children being spiritual? I often find my son saying hi to someone or looking at something and be smiling – without anyone being there of course 🙂 Thank you for your afterlife tv, it has helped me alot after my fathers passing. Happy new year!!


    • Bob Olson says:

      Hi Louise,

      That’s a great idea. I do talk about this in my book, Answers About The Afterlife, and in my episode with James Van Praagh (Children In The Afterlife), but it might be fun to focus a whole show on it. Thanks!


  9. Christine says:

    If you already answered this question please point me in that direction. Everyone always speaks about meeting loved ones in the after life or that they will be waiting for you. I assume that with loved ones, family members are meant. And that is what makes me very afraid. I’m very ill at the moment and the thought that if I die that my family members who passed before me, who abused and never loved me are waiting for me makes me very anxious. Why is this, was torture during life not enough?

    • Bob Olson says:

      Hi Christine,

      You won’t have to meet with anyone you don’t wish to see when you cross over. So you can wash that worry away. Only those who you want to reunite with will arrive for you.


  10. Wendy says:

    thanks so much for all your videos, just love them. I love Natalie as well, seen all her interview videos, I’m glad she’s at the Monroe institute now ! You spoke of finding coins as a sign, I’ve been finding dimes (over 40 now) in very strange places and at times when I asked out loud for a sign from passed loved ones! I just opened the Christmas boxes on the weekend, and found two dimes in the decorations ! Merry Christmas from spirit!

    • Bob Olson says:

      Awesome Wendy!

      Someone is a strong communicator for you. Thank you for sharing.


  11. Theda says:

    Wow, fantastic interview Bob! I am filled with gratitude for you both. Natalie is my favorite of all your guests. This is amazing and valuable information. I am thrilled to share with you that I strongly felt my deceased husband’s loving presence throughout the interview. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I am so excited for your new interviews!

    • Bob Olson says:

      Hi Theda,

      Well that’s a wonderful outcome. I’m so happy for you, and I appreciate you letting us know. Best wishes to you and your husband in spirit.


  12. Dana says:

    I just wanted to share that my brother passed away last month and his face showed up in the picture my sister took of the lake shortly after his ashes were placed there. My deceased Grandma’s face also is in the picture right above my brother. I’m a photographer so I made sure I got to see the original photo from my sisters phone to make sure no one edited the picture. Thank you Bob for the work that you do!!!

    • Bob Olson says:

      Hi Dana,

      I believe because I have seen a face of someone in spirit in a photo. What a wonderful gift for you. I appreciate you telling me.


  13. Andrea Moore says:

    Hi Bob,

    Thank you Bob for sharing as always. You are truly generous in spirit. I am grateful that I stumbled upon finding your afterlife discussions a few years back. Merry Christmas to you and yours. Wishing you the very best in the New Year.


    • Bob Olson says:

      Hi Andrea,

      I’m happy that you stumbled upon us too. I wish you love, joy and laughter this Christmas, and may 2016 be your best year so far.


  14. Jan says:

    Hi Bob,

    You will never know how your work, your book and interviews have enriched my life. I am of the age that most of my family is now in the spiritual realm and I always wonder if they’re participating in my family’s holidays, birthdays, weddings, births and if they will be there when I cross over. I just want to tell you that I appreciate you so very much! God Bless You!

    • Bob Olson says:

      Hi Jan,

      You’re very kind to write me. I thank you for your thoughtfulness.
